We commend the Hillsborough
County School Board on naming a
Lutz elementary school for George
Steinbrenner. His contributions to
the children and teachers of Hill-
sborough County are numerous.
His annual Christmas concerts
bring culture and the season's joy


to thousands of students. His an-
nual coach's awards dinner brings
recognition to a group of teachers
who are underpaid and under ap-
preciated for the meaningful work
they do in improving the lives
of our children. His generosity
often goes unnoticed because he


donates thousands anonymously.
To the world, his name is associ-
ated with New York. Those of us in
Tampa know his home and heart
is here.

A parent brought up her concern
about a graphic passage describ-
ing an attempted rape in the book
"Just Listen" by Sarah Dessen at
Tuesday's School Board meeting.
The board asked the superinten-
dent to look into the matter and to
mark the book with a "For Mature
Readers" sticker.
We hear that the school system
is now asking librarians to remove
the book. This removal is in viola-
tion of the school's policy of having


local school committees review
controversial books.
One parent, backed by a reli-
gious conservative School Board
Chairwoman Jennifer Faliero,
effectively banned a book from
library shelves within two days.
What's next, banning evolu-

Miguel Flores: Barry Bonds no fue botado por el Ma-
gallanes?
En dias pasados el comentarista caraquefio Humberto
Acosta, escribi6 sbbre el paso del controversial Barry Bonds
por el equipo venezolano, Navegantes del Magallanes, en
la temporada 1985-86. Bonds tenia un buen rendimiento
con el equipo a pesar de su juventud, andaba por los 18
afos, mientras los gerentes John Carrillo y Miguel Flores y
el manager Felipe Rojas Alou, se mostraban satisfechos con
el hijo de Bobby Bonds. Entonces Barry no fue despedido.
Lo que pas6, seg-n nos cont6 el propio Flores que vivi6 la
experiencia, fue que una noche al salir de un juego en el
estadio Universitario de Caracas, fueron todos los peloteros
del Magallanes a una arepera restaurante popular), para
comer algo antes de seguir viaje para Valencia (ciudad sede
del team). De sulbito, se produjo un tiroteo que oblig6 a Alou
y sus jugadores a tirarse al piso. Como era 16gico, el joven
Bonds se asust6 much y decidi6 regresar inmediatamente a
Estados Unidos. Esa es la verdadera historic.
Tampa Bay tiene un public leal
Otra cosa que tambien me dijo Miguel Flores, fue que
siempre lo ha impresionado favorablemente la lealtad de los

Actualidad de


America Latina


Argentina
El president Hugo Chavez amenaz6 hoy con recortar
las relaciones comerciales entire Venezuela y Colombia, en
medio de la fuerte crisis diplomitica entire las dos naciones,
resefl6 Reuters.
"Y esta relaci6n commercial que tanto nos cost levantar, y
que este afo pudiera rondar los cinco mil y tantos millones
de d6lares, yo estoy seguro que eso se va a lesionar, porque
yo ahora en vez de comprar en Colombia tantas o cuantas
cosas, bueno, me voy a Brasil", afirm6 a periodistas en
la madrugada. Las relaciones entire Bogota y Caracas
quedaron sumidas en su peor crisis en la historic reciente
despues de que Chavez acus6 a fines del mes pasado de
mentiroso a su hom6logo colombiano Alvaro Uribe, quien
reaccion6 acusandolo de legitimar a la guerrilla y de liderar
un proyecto expansionista. El deterioro en las relaciones
y los ataque verbales surgieron despu6s de que Uribe
suspendi6 la facilitaci6n de Chavez ante las izquierdistas
Fuerzas Armadas Revolucionarias de Colombia (FARC) para
buscar la liberaci6n de un grupo de rehenes secuestrados
por los rebeldes, incluida la ex candidate presidential
Ingrid Betancourt.
El Salvador
El president salvadoreflo, Elias Antonio Saca, calific6
de "buenas" las relaciones de su pais con Venezuela y neg6
que haya alguna intenci6n de romper vinculos diplomiticos
con esa naci6n suramericana. "Nosotros hoy por hoy no
estamos contemplando romper relaciones diplomdticas
con Venezuela", dijo Saca al ser consultado por periodistas
sobre recientes opinions brindadas al respect por un
diputado y del ministry de Seguridad y Justicia, Ren6
Figueroa, cit6 un despacho de Efe. Sin embargo, Saca
si ratific6 que' su gobierno investiga si los denominados
circulos bolivarianos venezolanos financial al partido de
la ex guerrilla izquierdista salvadorefla, porque constituiria
una "intromisi6n" en asuntos internos del pais, precis6 un
despacho de AFP. "Nosotros estamos siguiendo muy de
cerca el tema de los financiamientos y de las acusaciones
que se han hecho de la cercania de los circulos bolivarianos
con el FMLN (izquierda), eso si lo vamos a investigar",
asegur6 el president Saca en una improvisada rueda de
prensa. De comprobarse el financiamiento, ello constituiria
una "intromisi6n en asuntos internos".
Venezuela
La Federaci6n Internacional de Periodistas (FIP) seflal6
a Venezuela entire los paises en los que los ataques a la
prensa -y las violaciones de los derechos humanos- son
mas frecuentes. Las otras naciones citadas son AzerbaijSn,
Tunez, Pakistan, Israel y Nigeria. En una declaraci6n por
el Dia Muridial de los Derechos Humanos, la FIP arremeti6
contra los gobiernos que recurren a la ley para silenciar a los
medios de comunicaci6n critics, y recalc6 que un requisite
esencial para extender el respeto a los derechos humans
es terminar con la persecuci6n legal de los periodistas en
numerosos paises, resefi6 Efe. El secretario general de
la Organizaci6n, Aidan White, record que "la libertad de
expresi6n es un derecho fundamental", sin el cual no se
pueden defender los derechos recogidos en la Declaraci6n
Universal ni denunciar las violaciones. La FIP apunt6 a
los regimenes autoritarios, pero seflal6 que muchos de los
ataques contra medios se produce en paises considerados
models de democracia.
Guyana
Guyana planea protestar ante la Organizaci6n de
Naciones Unidas (ONU) por la demora de Venezuela en
emitir un informed official sobre la destrucci6n de dos dragas
guyanesas para rios por parte de soldados de ese pals,
un incident que ha renovado las tensions fronterizas
entire los dos vecinos suramericanos. El canciller de
Guyana, Rudy Insanally, dijo que Georgetown buscard una
respuesta de las Naciones Unidas ya que Caracas nunca
le dio una explicaci6n, semanas despu6s de que el Ej6rcito
guyan6s indic6 que soldados venezolanos destruyeron dos
dragas empleadas para la mineria de oro en una operaci6n
efectuada el 15 de noviembre en el rio Cuyuni. "Nuestra
soberania es primero. Todo mundo debe entender eso",
aflrm6 Insanally el lunes en un comunicado, resefiado por
AP, e indic6 que el president Bharrat Jagdeo se siente
frustrado por la demora de Caracas en emitir una respuesta
oportuna al asunto. Esta es la segunda declaraci6n que
emite el gobierno guyan6s frente a la falta de respuesta
official por el incident, en menos de cuarenta y cinco dias.

-Entre votos d6ares etroleros

Por primera vez una mujer l1ega a la presidencia de Argentina a trav6s de los votos. Pero
tambi6n de los d6lares del jeque venezolano Hugo ChAvez. Los 800 mil d6lares incautados
en Buenos Aires en una maleta que portaba el empresario Guido Antonini, eran para finan-
dar la campafia de Cristina Kirchner. Las grabaciones que posee el FBI involucran en el caso
al Vicepresidente venezolano Jorge Rodriguez, al Ministro del Interior y Justicia y al director
de la policia political, quienes trataban de convencer a Antonini de cambiar su version de los
hechos. Es la punta del hilo que ata Ia madeja de la corrupi6n multinacionaL

La intolerancia de los violentos


Por: Arturo R. Rivera
La noche fue larga en las
recientes elecciones del referen-
dum constitutional que se cele-
br6 en Caracas. La oposici6n
venezolana que favoreci6 el
"NO" se impacientaba ante el
silencio del gobierno y del Con-
sejo Nacional Electoral, que no
ofrecia datos del resultado del
event electoral. No fue hasta
la una de la madrugada que
el Consejo Nacional Electoral
anunci6 que el "NO" habia ob-
tenido un 50% de los votos y
el "Si" habia obtenido un 49%.
Hubo un 44% de abstenci6n,
de los que se entiende eran
partidarios de Chivez que no
fueron a votar.
Esamismanoche apareciaen
la television national un presi-
dente Hugo Chivez tranquilo y
sosegado, aceptando el triunfo
del "NO" y haciendo alardes de
su sistema democratic. Atrds
dejaba sus discursos histericos
y amenazas de nacionalizaci6n
de los bancos espafioles.
Sin embargo, inmediata-
mente el aura democratic de
6ste desapareci6; cuando al
dia siguiente irrumpe en una
conferencia de prensa de los
generals del ejercito donde
negaban que forzaron a Chivez
a reconocer la victoria, y se ex-
pres6 que la victoria del "NO"
era una "mierda". Posterior-
mente, la emprendi6 contra
sus propios partidarios al con-
siderarlos responsables por la
derrota electoral de su reform


constitucional-socialista en la
consult, y advirti6 que s61o la
revoluci6n bolivariana puede
garantizar la paz en el pais.
-Claramente esa declaraci6n
deja entrever que si el no esta
en el poder habrd violencia en
el pais. Es obvio que el autori-
tarismo de Chivez se trasluce.

Nicaragua
Tal parece que para los viejos
comunistas, como el presiden-
te de Nicaragua, Daniel Ortega,
nada cambia. Aparentemente
Ortega no aprendi6 nada de
su experiencia de los afios 80,
cuando install en Nicaragua
una caricature de la Cuba
de Castro y Ilev6 a su pais a
una guerra en el context de
la "Guerra Fria" que ocasion6
miles de muertos y miles de
exiliados. Ademis, ocasion6
mds empobrecimiento y la
ruina de la economic.
Al igual que Chavez, su vo-
caci6n autoritaria es evidente
cuando pretend la creaci6n de
un organismo paramilitary Ila-
mado Consejos del Poder Ciu-
dadano y formado por civiles
sandinistas, pese al rechazo de
la mayoria parlamentaria nica.
Cuafido los congresistas votaron
en contra de ese cuerpo opresivo,
que se parece a los Comit6s de
Defense de la revoluci6n cubana,
Ortega amenaz6 con gobemar
por decreto, por lo cual utilize
al president de la Asamblea
sandinista y a una instancia
judicial, bajo su control, para


tratar de burlar la autoridad
del cuerpo legislative. Nueva-
mente Nicaragua se enfrenta al
sandinismo autoritario.
M6xico
La Catedral Metropolitana
de la Ciudad de Mexico decidi6
cerrar sus puertas hasta que el
gobiemo federal y el de la capi-
tal no garanticen la seguridad
de los fieles y sacerdotes en
esta, que es la sede arzobispal
primada de Mexico. Durante
una celebraci6n eucaristica,
mrs de 100 simpatizantes del
candidate perdedor de las elec-
ciones del 2006, Andres M.
L6pez Obrador,. irrumpieron
en el temple amenazando a los
fieles, a los sacerdotes yal pro-
pio Cardenal Rivera Carrera.
Puerto Rico
En una actividad de alaban-
za a Dios en nuestra parroquia,
celebrada en la Cancha del
Reparto Metropolitano y presi-
dida por el Padre Luis, parroco,
unos ciudadanos l1amaron a la
Policia; porque-segmn ellos-
se estaba alterando la paz.
Conclusion
Todo lo anterior refleja el gra-
do de intolerancia autoritaria
que prevalece en America Lati-
nay elCaribe. La misma lesio-
na los derechos de aquellos que
no creemos en caudillos salva-
dores, que al final de cuentas
lo que hacen es engordar sus
bolsillos mientras el pueblo se
empobrece cada vez mis.

Chavez en asuntos de otros
paises, como ocurre con el fi-
nanciamiento a las guerrillas
de las FARC en Colombia, a
Ollanta Humala en el Perfi
(donde Jorge Rodriguez fue vis-
to como integrante de su cam-
pafia electoral), a Evo Morales
en Bolivia, a Rafael Correa en
Ecuador, a Daniel Ortega en
Nicaragua y pare de contar epi-
sodios del manirrotismo, que
tiene sumido a Venezuela en
un desabastecimiento general
y a las puestas de una crisis
econ6mica de dimensions
imponderables.

Eso se sabia
Eso se sabia, diran las
Casandras de nuestro process
politico. Si, pero es la primera
vez que hay pruebas tangibles
que involucran fehaciente-
mente al gobierno venezolano


entrometi6ndose en asuntos
de otros paises. Apareci6 un
maletin con 800 mil d6lares,
el individuo que lo cargaba, el
corifeo gangsteril que lo acom-
pafiaba y una cinta con la con-
fesi6n que destapa el guiso de
una corrupci6n multinational
encabezada por la Cosa Nostra
de Hugo Chavez Frias.
Las condenas pueden al-
canzar hasta los 10 afios de
prisi6n y el pago de multas
hasta por 250 mil d6lares.
La cosa debe ir para largo.
Ahora hay funcionarios altisi-
mos del regimen conectados
con el delito que se les im-
puta a los acusados: la de ser
el soporte para la elaboraci6n
fraudulent de documents
que alteraran la version origi-
nal de los hechos.
Ya comenzaron a cantar sus
desmanes los primeros teno-
res del oscuro asunto y parece


que en Venezuela todo un coro
afina sus voces para continuar
con esta sinfonia de delaciones.
No sabemos si la conspir-
aci6n tiene efecto penal vincu-
lante con el crime cometido
por los corifeos detenidos en
Miami. Lo que si es cierto es
que ha comenzado a develarse
una amplia trama de compli-
cidades que ahora tambien
salpica a la recien estrenada
president de Argentina.
Que mala pata tienen los
habitantes del pais austral con
sus mujeres presidents. Evita
los lanz6 por el despefiadero
de un populismo que todavia
tiene secuelas. Isabelita gober-
n6 con la bola de cristal del
brujo L6pez Rega hasta llegar
a la Dictadura. Y, ahora, la se-
flora K ha conezado a andar
tropezfndose con los zapatos
promiscuos de Hugo Chivez.
Vale.

Miami City Ballet en Clearwater


Por Leonardo Venta
"Cascanueces", el popular
clasico navidefio que parece
no envejecer, resurge cada
diciembre como parte de una
tradici6n tan restauradora
como el mismo milagro de la
vida.
Las nifias que asisten al
teatro y logran que sus pa-
dres le compren su pequefio
Cascanueces, o Nutcrack-
er- quizas despu6s de una
que otra rogativa sientan al
mufieco junto a ellas en sus
butacas. Lo arrullan y, termi-
nado el espectaculo, se lo lie-
van cobijado entire sus brazos,
mientras sus padres recuer-
dan la 6poca en que sus ilu-
siones eran juguetes. Eh ahi
la magia de "Cascanueces".
El Miami City Ballet, que
Edward Villella su fundador
- dirige artisticamente desde
1985, se enfrasca cada afio en.
hacernos vivir el sortilegio de
este ballet. Los dias 8 y 9 de
diciembre, "Cascanueces" fue
escenificado en el Ruth Eck-
erd Hall de. Clearwater, con
un casi leno total de la sala y
con un piublico que aplaudi6
la mas simple ejecuci6n de los
bailarines.
La historic de este ballet
fue escrita por Ernst Theodor
Amadeus Hoffman, en 1816,
bajo el titulo de "El Cascan-
ueces y el Rey de los ratones".
Posteriormente, el texto origi-
nal fue reformado por Alejan-
dro Dumas (padre). El core6-
grafo Marius Petipa estren6
en diciembre de 1892 la ver-
si6n en ballet de dicha histo-
ria con mfisica de Chaikovski.
En 1954, George Balanchine
realize su propia adaptaci6n
coreogrdfica para el New York
City Ballet.
Varios repartos se altern-
aron para las presentaciones
del Miami City Ballet en Clear-


water. En ia function domini-
cal, admiramos a la bailarina
cubano americana Patricia
Delgado y al brasilefio Renato
Penteado en los roles del "Ada
de Aziucar" y "Cavalier". El
adagio del famoso gran pas
de deux del segundo acto fue
simplemente encantador.
Penteado danz6 con apos-
tura, mientras Delgado en-
amoraba con la poesia de sus
movimientos. No tuvo que
esforzarse much para con-
vencernos de la dulzura de su
personaje. El cuerpo de baile,
por su parte, realize un ex-


celente trabajo de conjunto.
El acompafiamiento en vivo
por una orquesta dio distinti-
vo a la incomparable mfsica
de Chaikovski, asi como re-
mat6 el excelente y minucioso
montaje de ensuefios que debe
transmitir esta producci6n.
Nos complaci6 ver al excelente
bailarin Daniel Sarabia en su
primera temporada con la com-
pahia, asi como echamos de
menos a su hermano Rolando,
quien si participard en las fun-
ciones del Carnival Center de
Miami en el rol de Cavalier.


Pearl Harbor

El 7 de diciembre de 1941, WW" ..
la marina imperial japonesa | -iI
lanz6 un ataque sorpresivo a l
las 7:53 de la mariana al com-
plejo portuario y base military .. .
estadounidense Pearl Harbor,
en la isla de Oahu, Hawai. La -.
acci6n produjo 2.741 muertos y destruy6 doce buques
de guerra y 188 aviones, fue dirigida por el vicealmirante
Chuichi Nagumo. El objetivo del bombardeo a Pearl Har-
bor era neutralizar el potential naval estadounidense en
el Oc6ano Pacifico, asi fuese temporalmente. La opinion
ptiblica vio el ataque como un acto de traici6n y su irrit-
aci6n motiv6 el ingreso de EEUU en la guerra.

Este es el texto de un program de television
destinado a comentar el origen de las palabras
que conforman nuestro idioma espaftol. Es trans-
mitido todos los midrcoles a las 11 p.m. por
Univisi6n Tampa, en el program Noticias 62.
Alcohol
Las palabras son el espiritu de las cosas, con ellas les da-
mos nombre a todo lo que nos rodea y, si el mundo existe,
es porque con ellas podemos nombrarlo y le damos signifi-
cado. Hoy, en Pocas Palabras, vamos a descubrir el origen
de "Alcohol"
Durante ocho siglos los drabes ocuparon la peninsula
Ib6rica, el territorio de la actual Espania y Portugal, de-
japdo una herencia cultural y lingiistica que lega hasta
nuestros dias con una riqueza inmensurable. "Alcohol" es
la transformaci6n sonora de la raiz arabe "Koh61" y segun
dice el diccionario, 6sta design cualquier esencia obteni-
da por trituraci6n, sublimaci6n o destilaci6n. El Alcohol
ha sido ilamado tambi6n "espiritu del vino" y, en efecto,
6ste es product de la fermentaci6n del jugo obtenido de la
trituraci6n de las uvas, que terminan sublimadas en una
de las bebidas con las cuales celebramos la maravilla de la
existencia.

El Comit6 Olimpico Inter-

las medallas logradas en los
Juegos de Sydney, a la atleta
Marion Jones, despu6s que

que corren el riesgo de perder
sus medallas de oro tambien,
por culpa de la indisciplina de
la Jones, sus compafieras de
la cuarteta de relevo 4X100
norteamericana que gan6 en
Australia. Y otro al cual, si se
le haya culpable de consume
de esteroides, puede perder
sus records de mas jonrones
en una campafa (73) y de por
vida (762), es Barry Bonds. La
verdad es que hoy en dia, con
la presi6n de las marcas com-

Timez sorprende a Pachuca

min6 con el sueflo del Pachuca de Mexico en el mundial de
clubes, al caer 1-0 ante el Etoile du Sahel de Tfnez en los cu-
artos de final, resefi6 AP.
El volante de Ghana anot6 a los 85 minutes en un encuen-
tro disputado en el estadio Nacional de Tokio, donde los afri-
canos se medii-n el pr6ximo mi6rcoles ante Boca Juniors de
Argentina por una de las semifinals. Mientras, los mexicanos
regresaran a casa.
"La diferencia estuvo en que el Etoile hizo el gol y nosotros
no. Tuvimos muchos chances que no concretamos. Por eso el
Etoile es un digo ganador", dijo el t6cnico del Pachuca, Enrique
Meza.
Narry fue el responsible de la primera sorpresa que entrega
el campeonato de Jap6n, puesto que los "Tuzos" eran favorites,
pero nunca llegaron a demostrarlo en la cancha.
En la otra semifinal el Sepahan o el Urawa Red Diamonds en-

El Banco del Sur
Con la firm de un acta fundacional, ayer naci6 formalmehte, en
Buenos Aires, despu6s de ocho afios de preparaci6n, el Banco del
Sur, que integran, al menos en principio, Argentina, Bolivia, Brasil,
Ecuador, Paraguay, Uruguay y Venezuela.
Pese a los esfuerzos que han hecho los ministros de Finanzas de
los paises integrantes para avanzar en las condiciones de fundaci6n
de la iniciativa, el capital de arranque del banco no estA definido aun.
Se espera que en los pr6ximos 60 dias tanto ese asunto como la re-
dacci6n de los estatutos que regiran el funcionamiento del Banco del
Sur sean acordados entire los miembros y definidos en un convenio
constitutivo. Los ministros de Finanzas sostuvieron ayer un encuen-
tro privado, pero segin versions de Efe no se discutieron estos as-
pectos en la reunion.
El capital inicial de la eritidad rondaria $7 mil millones. El ministry
venezolano de Finanzas, Rodrigo Cabezas, declare que se alcanz6 con-
senso para que cada pais tenga igual representatividad con un voto
cada uno, decision que derrumba la propuesta de Brasil de que los
mayores contribuyentes al banco tuvieran un peso decisive superior.
Cabezas destac6 que ese sistema permitira luego a Colombia, Chile y

Noticias de Inmigracion
Director de Inmigracion de Catholic Charities
Por Jos6 Fern6ndez

Su esposa tambi6n podria obtener su
residencia permanent
Pregunta: Me llamo Juan Gallegos, soy originario de Mexico
y tengo viviendo en este pais desde el afio 1992. Tan pronto
league a los EE.UU., el 1 de julio de 1992, mi padre someti6 a
inmigraci6n mi petici6n familiar como resident permanent.
Hace un mes mi padre se ha hecho ciudadano americano.
.Como muchas personas mi pareja tambien es indocumentada
y hemos estado juntos durante mis de cinco, afio pero no
me he podido casar para no perder mi tramite de petici6n
familiar. Uno de mis amigos me ha dicho que como mi padre
se ha hecho ciudadano americano, ahora yo podria casarme
con mi pareja y continuar mi process original de inmigraci6n.
Antes de hacer cualquier movimiento con mi tramite de inmi-
graci6n, quisiera ser bien informado para no tener ninguna
conplicaci6n con mis tramites en el future.
Respuesta: Sefior Gallegos, es verdad lo que le ha dicho
su amigo. Usted ya se puede casar con su pareja y su peti-
ci6n no sera cancelada, ya que se esta casando despues de
que su padre ha recibido su ciudadania americana y podra
continuar su process sin ningin problema. Su categoria de
visas cambiara una vez se case. Al moment su categoria es
2B y una vez se case cambiaria a la tercera categoria. Lo
important de todo esto es que una vez se case, su esposa,
al igual que usted, calificara para su residencia permanent.
Si usted revisa el boletin de visa ahora, se puede dar cuenta
de que los hijos casados de padres mexicanos, ya tienen su
residencia permanent lista a quienes les han sometido su
petici6n familiar antes del 8 dejulio del 2007. Esto quiere decir
que una vez usted se case, ambos califican para su residencia
permanent y lo deben hacer dentro del pais sin tener que
hacer su process fuera ya que usted esta bajo la ley 245i.
Algo muy important es que personas como el senior Ga-
llegos que tienen un caso casi similar, sepan que si se ca-
san, durante el tiempo en que el padre todavia era.residente
permanent se les terminaria la petici6n familiar que' este en
process con emigraci6n por medio de su padre.

Proyecto de salud


Citando la necesidad de
asegurar a largo plazo la es-
tabilidad de los progran-as de
ayuda social, el Senador En-
sign present hoy un proyecto
de ley que pondria a Medi-
care en un campo financiero
'mas s6lido y stable. La legis-
laci6n de Ensign examinaria
los ingresos econ6micos de
los adults mayors mas ricos
inscritos en el-Programa de
Medicine Recetada bajo Medi-
care, conocida como Parte D.
"Esto es algo que ya se esta
haciendo en otras areas de
Medicare, y esta es una solu-
ci6n que ahorrard a los con-
tribuyentes miles de millones
de d6lares", dijo Ensign, miem-
bro del Comit6 de Finanzas


del Senado. "Deberiamos estar
ayudando a qtzenes necesitan
aV-yda. pero no se puede jus-
tificar, por ejemplo, que l1 pa-
dre de Bill Gates pueda recibir
medicine recetada pagada con
los impuestos de un maestro
de escuela o de un bombero.
Bajo el proyecto de ley de
Ensign, un adulto mayor solt-
ero con un ingreso de mis de
82,000 d6lares anuales o una
pareja con un ingreso de mas
de 164,000 d6lares anuales
pagaria una cantidad mayor
por sus medicamentos de Medi-
care, Parte D. La parte B de
Medicare, para los servicios de
medicos y cuidado del paciente
ambulatorio, impone una re-
visi6n de ingresos econ6micos.

Situaci6n tensa en Ecuador
Una huelga reprimida por los militares crisp6 la hasta aho-
ra buena relaci6n de la mayoria oficialista en la Constituyente
y el president, de Ecuador, Rafael Correa, que amenaz6 con
renunciar si ese 6rgano indulta a los press por-el paro que
afect6 la producci6n estatal de petr6leo.
"Si la Asamblea (de plenos poderes) pretend gobemar el
pais, acepten mi renuncia", reiter6 el mandatario ayer, luego
de haber hecho una advertencia similar el sabado, comunic6
AFP.
Correa se mostr6 fastidiado con la intervenci6n de la Asam-
blea de plenos poderes que redacta la nueva Constituci6n en
el caso de Dayuma, una aldea del sureste ecuatoriano donde
rige el estado de excepci6n desde el 29 de noviembre a causa
de la protest de pobladores que reclamaban obras viales.
El viernes el jefe de la Constituyente, el oficialista Alberto
Acosta, anunci6 una investigaci6n sobre los atropellos de las
tropas y se comprometi6 "a hablar con el Gobiemo para que se
aceleren los tramites y se libere a los inocentes".
No obstante, Correa asegur6 que interpretaria la pesquisa
"como una pufialada por la espalda" y se opuso a cualquier
intent de amnistia para veinte detenidos acusados de ter-
rorismo y sabotaje.
"Seria una pufialada por la espalda si la Asamblea riombra
una comisi6n para investigar el caso Orellana, con gente de
Sociedad Patri6tica (oposici6n), una traici6n a este proyecto
ciudadano", declar6.
Entre los capturados estA Guadalupe Llori, prefecta de
la provincia de Orellana, en cuya jurisdicci6n esta Dayuma,
quien estd detenida en Quito.

STORIA DEL TEATRO
ALLA SCALA
Fiore all'occhiello della cit-
ta di Milano, il Teatro alla
Scala nasce nel 1776, a op-
era dell'architetto Giuseppe
Piermarini e su commission
dell'imperatrice austriaca Ma-
ria Teresa d'Austria.
II 3 agosto 1776 l'opera Eu-
ropa riconosciuta di Antonio
Salieri inaugura il prestigioso
Teatro.
Con la rappresentazione
del 1812 de La pietra del
paragone di Rossini la Scala
diviene la sede principal del
melodramma italiano, meritre
il balletto acquisisce un ruolo
di primo rilievo in seguito alle
collaborazioni dei coreografi
Salvatore Vigano e Carlo Blasis
e delle grand stelle intemazi-
onali quali Carla Fracci, Liliana
Cosi, Luciana Svignano, Ori-
ella Dorella, Alessandra Ferri,
Margot Fonteyn, Serge Lifar,-


Maya Plissetskaya, Rudolf
Nureyev.
Tra le maggiori opere che vi
hanno preso vita si ricordino
il Flauto magico di Wolfgang
Amadeus Mozart nel 1816,
tra il 1822 e il 1825 Chiara e
Serafina di Gaetano Donizetti
e Il pirata di Vincenzo Bellini,
nel 1839 Oberto, conte di San
Bonifacio di Giuseppe Verdi e
nel 1855 Le Villi, Manon Les-
caut, Madama Butterfly, La
fanciulla del West di Giacomo
Puccini.
Alla direzione del nostro
teatro si alternano grand mae-
stri come Arturo Toscanini,
che dopo il bombardamento
della Scala nel 1943 dirige lo
storico concerto di riapertura
nel 1946, Guido Cantinelli,
che ha il sommo piacere di
collaborare con grand artist
quali Maria Callas, Renata
Tebaldi, Giuseppe Di Stefano,
Mario Del Monaco, Luchino


Visconti e Giorgio Strehler,
il maestro Claudio Abbado,
Maurizio Pollini e Riccardo
Muti, che nel 1986 diviene
direttore dell'Orchestra Filar-
monica della Scala.
Nel 2001 l'ultima stagione
della Scala prima della sua chi-
usura per il grande restauro.
Nel period dei lavori, l'attivita
artistic ha luogo press il
nuovo Teatro degli Arcimboldi,
edificato nell'area industrial
dismessa della Pirelli-Bicocca.
II 7 dicembre del 2004 il nos-
tro teatro viene riaperto alla
citta con la rappresentazione
dell'opera che ne aveva in-
augurato il debutto 266 anni
prima, l'Europa Riconosciuta
del Salieri diretta dal maestro
Riccardo Muti, con la regia di
Luca Ronconi e la scenografia
di Pier Luigi Pizzi.

PREVENTING HEALTH


CARE FRAUD

Health Care Fraud contributes to the rising cost
of health care. Be suspicious if a health provider
tells you the following:

* The test is free; he only needs your Medicare
number for his records.

* Medicare wants you to have the item or service.

* They know how to get Medicare to pay for it.

* The more tests they provide the cheaper
they are.

* The equipment or service is free; it won't cost

you anything.

Last week the Democratic Par-
ty had a fundraiser at the Tampa
home of Dr. Steve and Janet
Rifkin featuring CFO Alex Sink
and Party Chairwoman Karen
Thurman. The event was well at-
tended with close to 80 supporters.
What was interesting was all the
new faces at the event. For years
the party's financial base has been
somewhat stagnant, but there
now appears to be new interest
from people, who had been on the
sideline, in helping the party.

Our friend Victor DiMaio, Sr.

him in intensive care. We pray for
a complete recovery.

On Friday the legislative dele-
gation led by State Representative
Kevin Ambler voted to support the
"Jim Norman Employment Act"
bill. Well, it wasn't called that but
it should have been.
KevinAmbler came to the meet-
ing Friday willing to manipulate
the system to get local support
for a bill that would add a County
Commission appointee to the
Planning Commission and the
Tampa Sports Authority (TSA).
It would also take away a Tampa
mayor's appointment from the
TSA. The end result would be that
the County Commission would
dominate both boards: The cities
of Tampa, Temple Terrace and
Plant City With would get repre-
sentation on the Environmental
Protection Commission, but the
County Commission would still
be in the majority.
When Ambler arrived at the
meeting, he knew that he didn't


have the votes, so he delayed
bringing up his bill from a sched-
uled morning discussion to one
very late in the day. His first ally,
State Senator Ronda Storms, ar-
rived 45 minutes late as usual. We
hear she ran out of lipstick and
it took time to roll a replacement
barrel into her house.
Her arrival still left Ambler
short. He walked from legislator
to legislator, whispering to them
in front of the crowd to count his
votes and to make deals for sup-
port out of the sunshine. Still
short, he waited.
The next late arrival was State
Representative Ron Reagan,
who lives in Manatee and was a
previously arranged Ambler ally.
Ambler could now make his move.
He asked to waive the rules. Nor-
mally for a bill to be considered
a local bill (one supported by the
community) it must receive sup-
port from. eight of the 12 House
members and three out of the four
senators. His motion would make
the threshold a simple majority
of senators and representatives
present. His motion passed with
two senators and six representa-
tives voting yes. This was the first
time anyone ever remembers that
the Hillsborough County delega-
tion waived the rules.
Bolstered by this successful
abuse of power, Ambler went for
the jugular and presented his bill,
which passed with two senators
and five representatives voting
yes. That's a ridiculously low
seven out of 16 legislators voicing
support for the bill.
So why would KevinAmbler use
up so much of his political capital
and risk manipulating the rules.
for a bill the public doesn't care
about, has no rich lobby backing
it and seems to have nothing to
do with him? Well, here is where
this long story gets interesting.
In 2009, Victor Crist will retire
from his Senate seat, as will Jim
Norman from the County Com-
mission. Insiders say the two have
a deal to switch seats, but this
could limit Ambler's future since
he would like to run for Crist's
Senate seat but won't challenge
his friend Norman. So what's
Ambler to do? He must find a
better job for Norman. One that
pays over $200,000 and involves
Norman's favorite subject, sports,
would be great. Isn't the director
of the Tampa Sports Authority
close to retirement in 2009? That
job fits the requirement, but how
can Ambler guarantee it going to
Norman? Well, allowing Norman
to appoint a majority of theTSA's
board might just do the trick. Vic-
tor Crist gets Norman's seat, Am-
bler gets Crist's seat, and Norman
runs the TSA, and all we had to
do to make everybody happy was
to waive the rules.

The issue of Cuba was dis-
cussed during Sunday's Republi-
can presidential debate broadcast
on Univision.
The mediator asked, "Cuban
dictatorship 'has survived nine
U.S. presidents. What would you
do differently that has not been
done so far to bring democracy to
Cuba?"
The candidates called Castro
and his brother brutal, contempt-
able, dictators and strongmen, and
one candidate suggested indicting
them. None of the candidates sug-

Ybor City is moving from Gay-

The St. Petersburg Times head-
line read, "No one is a frontrun-
ner until Iowa voters say so." We
wondered if that was true, so we
checked to see what happened to
Iowa frontrunnerss." In 2000 and
2004, Democratic frontrunners
Al Gore and John Kerry went on
to be the Democratic nominees,
as in 1996, but that was too easy
since Bill Clinton was unopposed
in Iowa.
In 1992 Iowa picked Tom Har-
kin as the "frontrunner," but by
New Hampshire he no longer held
that position, losing it to Paul
Tsongas, who then lost the lead
to Bill Clinton as the primaries
turned south.. Iowa also picked
the loser in 1988 by choosing
Richard Gephardt (his almost
invisible eyebrows were creepy).
New Hampshire chose the real
frontrunner by picking Michael
Dukakis in its primary (this is
a great reason why New Hamp-
shire should lose its place as the
nation's first primary).
Iowa picked Walter Mondale
in 1984, who went on to become
the nominee, while New Hamp-
shire thought Gary Hart was the
"frontrunner." The incumbent
Jimmy Carter took both prima-
ries in 1980 but in 1976 Iowa
thought "uncommitted" was the


frontrunner. In 1972 these early
states chose Edmund Muskie
but George McGovern came out
on top.
Florida's Presidential Primary's
track record over the same pe-
riod of time is far better on the
Democratic side and perfect on the
Republican side. The only Florida
misses were Gary Hart in 198.4
arid George Wallace in 1972.
*****
Tampa was ranked dead last
in a list of walkable cities, having
not one area, not even Ybor City,
within Tampa considered walk-
able. The author said Tampa is
making strides, to make things
better.
We're not as optimistic as the
author. We see Tampa and Hill-
sborough County continuing to
ignore basic needs to make the
area pedestrian friendly.
The city continues to close
streets and sidewalks for devel-
opers, creating unwalkable super
blocks.
Unwillingness to address
High speed one-way streets like
Howard, Armenia, Tampa and
Florida.
The county exempts industry
from having to build sidewalks
when it develops land. (Example:
Pepin Distributing at 50th Street
and MLK)
Building streets like Merid-
ian in Channelside. The district's
supposed to be urban and walk-
able but Meridian is so wide with
medians you can't cross that it
belongs in the suburbs.
And, last, there is a complete
lack of will to increase public
transit.
*****
Here's an unusual political
event ...B-Rock for Change II at
the Crowbar in Ybor City.
Seven local acts and a DJ will
per .>rm rock, hip hop and gospel
while supporters mingle at info
tables with materials on Senator
Obama's views on the war, edu-
cation and healthcare. Politics,
booze and loud music sounds
great. Cover is $3 for 18 and up.
The event is Saturday evening,
December 29.

We have gotten more calls from
Republicans than Democrats
praising our endorsement of Bill
Richardson as the most qualified
candidate.

Gratitude and a Little Girl's Toil


Uplifting articles about grat-
itude offer readers relief from
murder and mayhem every hol-
iday season. An odd undercur-
rent marks this year's cover-
age, which a typical newspaper
headline sums up: "Gratitude:
It's good for you."
Apparently we are too cyni-
cal a people to be exhorted to
express gratitude for grati-
tude's sake.
We must be reminded, in
the words of a newspaper's
editorial: "Social science re-
searchers in the field of posi-
tive psychology, which studies
human well-being, are proving
that gratitude is key to happi-
ness. It seems gratitude can
promote health, fight illness,
improve your social life and
help you cope with stress."
Many writers cite Robert A.
Emmons' book Thanks! How
the New Science of Gratitude
Can Make You Happier, which
points out that when we prac-
tice gratitude, we sleep better,
have lower blood pressure and
experience better health.
Cultivate attitude of grati-
tude...it's good for you!" reads a
Dallas Morning News headline.
Deborah Norville's new book
sports a title that likewise lets
you know there's a payoff: Thank
You Power: Making the Science
of Gratitude Work for You.
And this from James O'Dea,
president of the Institute of
Noetic Sciences:
"Your body loves gratitude!
It washes away the biochemis-
try of stress and insufficiency
and replaces it with the alchemy

alternate transportation plans, such as being dropped off or
using a taxi service:
8 Limit Carry-ons. Airlines are enforcing regulations on
the size and number of carry-ons. Check with your airline
for guidance.
9 Pack Smart. Passengers may carry up to 3.4 ounces
(100ml) or smaller in a 1 quart-size plastic zip-top bag,
1 bag per traveler. One exception: juice for children. Also,
pack medicine and valuables in carry-on baggage.
10 Remote Control Toys. Travelers may encounter
additional-screening when carrying remote controlled
devices in carry-on baggage. To avoid delays, declare such
devises at the screening checkpoint.
11 Don't lock Checked Baggage. Leave bags unlocked
or use TSA-approved locks because they may be inspected
by security.
12 Prohibited Items. Firearms, large knives, pocket
knives, pointed scissors, self-defense sprays and other
potential weapons are not allowed in the aircraft cabin.
Place these items in checked bags. Go to www.TSA.gov for a
complete list of prohibited items.
13 Be Prepared for Screening. Plastic bags containing
liquids must be removed from carry-on bags for screening.
To maximize efficiency at the security screening checkpoint,
remove all metal and stow it in your carry-on bag.
14 Picking Up Arriving Passengers. Procedures give
customers timely access to the curbsides, provide real-time
flight information and options when delays occur. The CELL
PHONE WAIT LOT provides awaiting area until passengers
call for pick up. The lot is equipped with flight monitors.
Plus, it is free of charge. Customers may also park in the
Short or Long Term garages and wait in the terminal
because the FIRST HOUR IS FREE.
15 Wrap Gifts Upon Arrival. Leave gifts (checked and
carry-on) unwrapped because they may need to be opened
for further inspection.

of flow and emotional warmth.
The resonance from grateful-
ness warms both the giver and
receiver; it generates a field
of appreciation sometimes re-
ferred to as limbic resonance."
Many of the books and
newspaper articles provide
lists of daily tasks to help
create a gratitude habit: keep
a journal of things you are
thankful for; recite a prayer of
gratitude; stop grousing and
instead employ words such as
"gifts," "blessings" and "abun-
dance"; learn to be grateful for
small things such as catching
a cab in the rain.
My favorite gratitude head-
line? "Fifth-Grader Shows
Gratitude By Knitting Caps For
Troops In Iraq." In Alexandria,
Va., young Samara Yego discov-
ered that a friend's husband
would be stationed in Iraq over
the holidays. So, out of cam-
ouflage-colored yarn, she set
out to knit 30 caps, each cap
taking her two hours to create.
A teacher had taught her the
craft of cap-making just last
year. As the Tucker Elementary
School student explained to
a reporter: "It will keep them
warm and let them know that
people really appreciate what
they have done for us."
My guess is that no one had
to tell Samara Yego that grati-
tude would lower her blood
pressure or enhance her limbic"
resonance. I'll bet she gave
from the heart.

Avenue, Thomas
Oliver Kopian's

resembling a

"Fraggle Rock" *
television show
unfolds in his.
art studio/toy

he creates Crea-
tures of Delight. k
Made of latex

stuffed magical
and mythical
creatures Kopian j
creates adorn al-
most every inch
of the wall and

his studio. Rain-

Dinosaurs sit

walls. Crowned
frogs waiting for "The coo

on shelves. Some they smile
gargoyles are as
small as a few inches high,
while a few dragons are a few
feet long.
Over the years, Creatures
of Delight have been found in
department stores across the
country, cereal boxes around
the world, and even on televi-
sion in the form of a cartoon
series. His creations have been
seen on pajamas, lunchboxes
and bed sheets. But, for 14
years, the Tampa Bay commu-
nity has had a first hand look
at the creative process behind
these creatures through Kopi-
an's studio in Ybor City.
What makes his Creatures
of Delight studio and shop so
special isn't just that it is filled
with the types of creatures we
all dreamt of as little kids, but
it offers all its visitors an op-
portunity to create their own
fairy tale creatures.
"I offer workshops seven
days a week from noon to
4 p.m. in which people can
make their own Creatures of
Delight," said the cartoon-like
and energetic artist and found-
er of Creatures of Delight.
Through the workshops,
Creatures of Delight offer visi-
tors the opportunity to learn
the secret behind their unique
process in which they are cre-
ated. Visitors are then provided
with a creature devoid of color
or design in order to create
their own one of a kind mas-
terpiece with a wide selection
of paint, eyes, hair etc.
"Honestly, a 3-year-old can
design one. The hardest thing
is when adults come in who
think they can't do it. A lot of
adults are scared they'll look
stupid if it doesn't turn out
right. But if I can get them
to let go, they always have
fun and leave with a smile,"
said Kopian, who, during the
workday, is usually splattered
with the rainbow of colors that
make up his artistry
Kopian has created an op-
portunity for anyone off the
street to bring fairy tales to
life, a fitting profession for a
man who has lived a fairy tale


life. As a child, Kopian hoped
that he would one day be able
to make a living off his unique
artistic abilities. But not even
he could have foreseen the
whirlwind of success it would
one day bring.


iomas Oliver Kopia


lest thing is people come into the sA
le."

Born and raised in New York
where, the now 41-year-old
Kopian said that when he was
a little kid he was fascinated
with the special effects pup-
pets of movies like Star Wars
and television shows like H.R.
Pufnstuf and the old Rudolph
live action puppet Christmas
special. Wanting to learn how
to make such creatures on his
own, he began reading "how
to" books and by the time he
was a teenager was fabricating
his own puppets out of chicken
wire, plaster and rubber.
He would share his talents
with the State of New York
every Halloween, filling his
parents' yard with Halloween
creatures he'd spend the entire
summer working on. By the
time he was 16 years old, Ko-
pian said an estimated 10,000
people would visit his parents'
house during the Halloween
season to view his work.
"In the 1980s, Christmas
was the thing to do. People
would say, 'Let's go see the
Christmas house' and drive
miles and miles to see a house
that was beautifully decorat-
ed," said Kopian. "Well, I wasn't
into that. But I loved Halloween
and wanted to create the Hal-
loween house."
He continued this Hallow-
een tradition through high
school and into his college
years. During his second year
of college, Kopian enrolled in a
business class taught by two
adjunct professors and busi-
ness owners who educated
their students not just through
books but through their real
life experiences. The teachers
inspired Kopian to take his
artistic talent to the next level
and begin marketing it to the
world.
"The professors pretty much
said if you start a business
young and it fails, who cares?
All you lose is three years of
your life," said Kopian. "They
said if you have an idea for a
business, you have to just go
for it."
Kopian began travelling to


art shows and major art fes-
tivals throughout the tri-state
area with his creatures. He'd
sell his creatures at little art
shows and boutiques, slowly
but surely making a name for
himself.
Then, dur-
n ing the Hallow-
In Neen following the
completion of the
business course
that inspired him,
Kopian's years of
hard work and
dedication to his
craft paid off.
A visitor to his
haunted house
was a major dis-
tributor for toy
-. companies such
as Playmobile and
FAO Schwarz. He
fell in love with
Kopian's creations
and told him that
if he could make
the puppets soft
S and squishy, they
could easily be
marketed on a
worldwide basis.
Kopian went
right to work and
within a week
he invented the
patented Rubber
Plush material he
uses today.
"Everything I
do is pretty much
made of latex and
,p fiber and filled with
hop and the same stuff in-
side your pillows,"
explained Kopian.
"For the bigger creatures I use
some molding or metal frames,
but for the most part every-
thing is squishy."
The toy distributor was true
to his word. Almost overnight,
Kopian went from scraping to-
gether loose change to put gas
in his beater of a car to signing
contracts to create merchan-
dise for Universal Studios.
"I did a lot of merchandiz-
ing for Ghostbusters, such as
Slimer dolls and other ghost
dolls, when there was a Ghost-
busters ride at Universal," said
Kopian. "I also did some mer-
chandizing for E.T."
In 1989, wanting to be clos-
er to Universal, he relocated to
Tampa.
"I opened my studio in Ybor
because I felt it was the perfect
place for me to be," he said.
"Ybor provided a workspace
and a place where people who
were walking around could
stop in. At the time, in the early
1990s, Ybor was full of artists
and people would come to
Ybor in search of those funky
things they couldn't find any-
where else. My shop definitely
offered something different.
Plus, it was just two hours
from Universal, which was my
major client.
But it was his original cre-
ations his dragons and gar-
goyles and wizards and fairies
that soon began garnering
him the most attention. In the
early 1990s, Kopian said his
agent began signing licensing
agreements with seemingly
every major distributor in the
world. Kopian had his own
lines of toys, Creatures of De-
light, in Wal-Marts, Kmarts,
BJ's Wholesale Clubs and oth-
er major outlets. Depictions of
his squishy fairy tale creatures
were popping up on all sorts of
merchandise lunch boxes,
bed sheets, pins, backpacks
and pajamas. Creatures of
Delight was featured in Variety
magazine and other national
publications. In Europe, his
toys were prizes in Rice Krisp-
ies cereal boxes. His success


hit its apex when a cartoon
series, aptly named Crea-
tures of Delight, was designed
around his line of toys. The
show, which was broadcast for
one season, revolved around a
kid who would visit his aunt's
house that held a portal to a
world full of magical creatures.
Kopian came up with the origi-
nal creatures and the show's
producers did the rest.
At its peak, Kopian said
Creatures of Delight was signed
to over 60 licensing deals.
"At the time I remember
thinking, 'I am set for life,"
said Kopian.
A lot of people were making
money off Creatures of Delight,
which soon led to the destruc-
tion of Kopian's quick rise to
success.
"People were mad that I
was making so much money,"
he explained. "The marketing
people saw me simply as a
guy with a cute product. They
thought anyone could do what
I was doing. Then, everyone be-
gan trying to screw everybody
out of money. It was ridiculous.
Ultimately, they spent so much
time fighting that they couldn't
meet their obligations and ev-
erything just fell apart."
Kopian didn't allow the loss
of his worldwide licensing deals
to keep him down for long. He
concentrated on his art studio
in Ybor City and got back to his


artistic roots creating simply
to make people happy. In time,
this approach put Kopian back
on top.
In Tampa, Creatures of De-
light can be found -decorating
pediatric offices and homes of
some of the city's wealthiest
residents, and Tampa Theatre
commissioned Kopian to create
the theatres gargoyle mascot.
He also continues to make
Creatures of Delight for people
all over the country, with some
loyal customers literally own-
ing hundreds of his creatures.
Department stores and art gal-
leries around the country once
again carry his line of toys,
though on a more limited basis
than they did during Creatures
of Delight's licensing heyday
Most of all, though, Kopian
just enjoys creating in his
art studio and helping others
to create through his work-
shops.
"The coolest thing is people
come into the shop and they
smile," said Kopian. "Even if
they don't buy anything or cre-
ate anything on their own in a
workshop, they just get a.kick
out of what we have here and
they leave with a smile?"
Creatures of Delight is lo-
cated at 1901 N. 15th St. For

F HART
Driven to serve you.


Lolo ran a highly unusual
establishment in Ybor City.
She was a mysterious lady
who had appeared in Ybor
City in the twenties from New
Orleans.
Her family was rich, lived in
Monterrey Mexico, and owned
breweries, which eventually
became Carta Blanca Beer.
She came from a large family
of seven brothers and sisters.
They were a happy family.
With the revolution of 1910
came the Rebel Army of Gen
Carranza, who took the city
by storm. He gave the Span-
ish citizens (Gauchupines) 24
hours to go to the rail yards,
get on flat cars and flee to
America. This they did with
four girls carrying the family
jewels sewed in the lining of
their skirts. From Houston
they came to Tampa.
Lolo, high spirited, daring,
adventuresome and talented,
sought out a living singing and
dancing and whatever else was
needed to make ends meet.
Here she met the love of her
life a dashing gambler and
adventurer, Milo, who was also
a consummate ladies man.
Their love affair was fiery.
Both of mercurial dispositions,
jealous by nature, there were
many explosive fights. There
were many knife wounds,
battering with pots and pans,
and more than one 'serious'
hospitalization.
Finally, one night, tired of
being beaten when he came
home after losing at cards,
she bought a gun from a bo-
lita man, and shot Milo in the
stomach. The charge would
be.attempted homicide. She
patched him up and took a
train to New Orleans. From
there friends took them into
the Cajun country where they
stayed for two years while he
healed.
Reasoning that the Tampa
Police were looking for Lolo,
and that Milo's appearance
back in Ybor would mean that
there was no victim, therefore,
no crime. Case dropped.
But Lolo fell in with the lan-
guid life of the Cajun swamp


people. The hot food reminded
her of her Mexican Indian be-
ginnings, and life was free and
easy, with worries put aside,
and dancing and singing every
night. She let life pass her by
and barely thought of Milo and
his gambling ways.
Eventually, the village elder
brought her to his office and
said; "Lolo, IT'S TIME TO GO
BACK. You're NOT a Cajun gal.
Your life is back in Florida. Go
on back." So saying, he gave
her an envelope with a train
ticket, and enough cash to get
started. She kissed and hugged
the old Cajun and headed back
to Ybor City where she had a
good idea of what to do.
The Columbia Restaurant
Caf6 was the meeting place for
all Ybor men. Open 24 hours
a day it attracted everyone in
town. The coffee was the best
in town, as were the Cuban
Sandwiches.
Across the street was an
abandoned two story, large
building. Things were bad at
that time and NO one would
rent it. Lolo and her bag of
Cajun gold would.
"Across the street from the
Columbia Cafe, are you mad?
What business do you think
you are going to get. You cer-
tainly ain't going to sell coffee
or Cuban sandwiches." She
smiled. She looked in the mir-
ror. She was still unusually
beautiful. Her relaxing stay in
the bayou had filled out her
form. Her breasts had grown,
her waist stayed small, and a
rear end to please the MOST
Latin of men. Her legs were still
dancer's legs. ALL IN ALL, SHE
WAS AN A+.
So, did the Columbia Caf6
have any of that? Didn't men
still like to be served their
steaming coffee from the hands
of an authentic 'guapa', she
welcomed an occasional slap
on the ass, and a pinch on her
tit. And, promises of more,
upstairs."
As the first year went by,
Lolo decided that the empty
second floor would make a

great gambling-casino, with
faro tables, roulette and craps.
She got a Mafia Don to back
her, fixed the police and she
began staying up all night.
Business dropped down stairs,
but upstairs made up for it.
She made so much money she
invested in beautifying the
outside. Her place was like

habit of gambling got so deep
in debt he offered to spice up
the outside with a gadget he
would install.
He designed and construct-
ed a two story figure of a man
with a tilted derby, and a per-
petual smile. He held a large
cigar in his mouth,
He constructed both arms to
be functional. In his left hand
he held a king size kitchen
match. In his right, a match
box with a large rough surface
for striking the match.
At the top of the hour, the
match would strike the box. A
giant flame would erupt, and
then the arm would move to
the cigar, and light the end.
Puffs.of smoke would then
erupt-in:perfect smoke rings
for.one minute, This now was
the officer's clock that marked
the hour for Ybor City. It was at
Lolo's Place, everyone noted.
Next day she called the old
master who made the dice for
the club. He was a genius with
dice.
"I want a pair of dice. Red
with white numbers. INSTEAD
of the number one I want an
evil eye. Under it you inscribe
the word Mo-Jo."
"What is it, a joke?"
"No, Maestro it is a call to
a loved one, and it's going to
make me a fortune."
That night a large sign went
up, one on Seventh Avenue and
one on 22nd Street. "Come find
the Mojo. Large reward offered.
If you lose, half will go into a
glass bowl whoever wins, gets
the bonus in the bowl. Come
roll the dice with Lolo!"
People lined up to roll. Fifty
dollars a roll was steep, but
the reward was high, and as
the nights rolled by without a
winner, the big bowl behind the
crap table filled with $50 and
$100 bills. Greed knows no
bounds. They guessed. Maybe
it held $10,000. No, $50,000
at the least.


The place was packed every
night, and on weekends the
place had a line to get in that
stretched around the corner.
The cafe prospered as well
because Lolo hired the Colum-
bia Cafe's sandwich maker,
and her coffee was made with
Columbia Coffee. What's a
gambler to do when he is in
the midst of gambling but
send downstairs for a Cuban
Sandwich and cafe con leche?
The entire operation was a
gold mine.
But, wait. Just wait, said
mala linguas (bad mouths).
Wait til Milo shows up and
demands his half. "Well cross
that bridge when we get to it.
Hell, I'd like to see him. I miss
the old crook." She would smile
her wicked smile. She was a
devil herself: The customers
loved her.
One night she had a strong
dream about Milo's return. In
the dream-he-kept rattling a
pair of dice in his hand saying
"I GOT your Mo-jo. I GOT your
Mo-jo." And she woke up in a
sweat. Her heart was beating
fast. She was scared. Scared it
wouldn't happen. Her old hot
.feeling for Milo came back.
Lolo had to close the table
during the day, and open it
from 9pm to 6am, for only the
hard gamblers and incurable
dreamers. It didn't matter
which, they all lined up rolled
the dice to the chant.
"Come on Mo-jo, Come on
Mo-jo. Be my Mo-jo, baby,
come on."

And they all LOST. The Mojo
never showed. Of course not
one customer imagined that
Lolo had the dice fixed by the
old master. Mo-jo couldn't
come up if they threw the dice
all year long. The big glass jar
grew, nobody knew how much.
Lolo quietly skimmed the bowl,
putting thousands in her ac-
count. No one was ever going
to win the bowl anyhow.
So it went on for a few pros-
perous years, until finally, one
night, on Noche Buena, the
inevitable happened.
Milo, the long absent gam-
bler, showed up. He played the
Mo-jo board and lost. But he
knew Lolo better than anyone
in Ybor City. He knew Lolo in-
side and out, and he knew he
had the key to her heart. He
took her to a private room in
the Columbia, and they made
passionate love all night,
By dawn, Lolo had sur-
rendered up her secret of the
fixed Mo-jo game. They took
the giant bowl to the bed-
room, locked the door, and
counted it.
The bowl held close to a mil-
lion dollars! This did not count
what she had skimmed during
the years, which was another
half million, at least. She was
smart enough NOT TO TELL
Milo about that STORE of cash.
"Tomorrow is Xmas. You'll put
it in La Gaceta that I am back
in town and back on top of the
world. I'll come in around mid-
night and announce grandly
that I am the Mojo, and I've

come to roll the dice and win
the bowl."
The crowd that gathered
packed the place.. Police held
the crowd at bay at the stair-
case. Lolo made the most of the
event. After all, Lolo was an en-
tertainer first and foremost.
Meanwhile the old master
dice maker loaded the dice to
come out the right way. Lolo,
herself, threw the dice. At
the stroke of midnight, Milo
with a great flair stepped up
to a grand drum roll and an-
nounced he was the Mo-jo,
and he'd come to take back
his 'eye'. There were few in the
crowd who doubted that he
would. There were NONE who
suspected that Lolo had loaded
the dice. Milo could NOT lose.
Such are the rewards of a flam-
ing love of the heart, and the
mob's naive belief in the power
of a huge love.
The news turned the town of

bold letters. Even the Staid
Tampa Tribune carried it on the
page usually reserved for Mafia
killings, which in a way is what
it was, a killing. On a bright
sunshiny January morning
the customers were shocked
to see a sign over the door of
Lolo's Place.
It read:
Lolo's Place is closed for
NOW.
We will be back soon.
Enjoy the holidays.
Signed Lolo
People waited patiently, but
Lolo never came back. No one
ever heard one word of Lolo's
whereabouts. NOT in New Or-
leans, NOT in Los Angeles, NOT
in Monte Carlo. Some felt she
lived in splendor back in the
bayou country of Louisiana,
but no one could find a trace
of her there. But, one thing was
sure. No one ever saw her or
Milo in Ybor City again.
Lolo had her Milo, and Milo
had his Mo-jo.

Report By Richard Muga


A Priceless Christmas Gift


On Saturday, December
1, John Thomas and family
hosted their annual Christmas
party. The monumental event
has taken place for the last 20
years at John's house. Their
mammoth garage, yard and
a huge tent becomes a place
where hundreds of friends
and family meet yearly for a
delicious meal of fried grouper,
Italian sausage, hush puppies,
yellow rice and all the other
accoutrements possible for a
back-yard party.
This year's event was dif-
ferent. John, his family and
friends considered the get to-
gether a Christmas gift of a life
time. Prior to the party, John
had been seriously ill for sev-
eral months and on a couple of
occasions near death. '
On July 16, 2007, John
entered the hospital for a
surgical procedure to repair
an aneurism. As it developed
during the operation there
were four major aneurisms
on the arteries of his right leg.
The normally simple opera-
tion became a life threatening
nightmare that would strain
the fibers of the family to their
maximum endurance.
For the next several months
John teetered between life and
death. His devoted family,
always at his side, suffered
greatly with the uncertainties
surrounding the grave condi-
tion of the family patriarch.
His son, John "Cookie," and
wife, on an extended voyage
through the south pacific as
captain of the yacht Scorcha,
flew home for fear that one of
the five surgeries which John


was to undergo would not be
successful. It was close.
After four months of surger-
ies, treatments and physical
therapy sessions John came
home on October 20. He is not
yet fully recovered but gets by
on his own or with the aid of
a wheel chair. But a man of
the character that John pos-
sesses will not be kept down.
Two weeks ago, I walked into
the popular restaurant Arco
Iris in West Tampa to meet
some friends for lunch. There,
at the head of a table that in-
volved half of the restaurant,
sat John Thomas. Together
with his wife children and
several close friends they did"
what they have always done
S. .have immeasurable fun.
The joy of the family spilled all
over the restaurant with their
laughter and happy comments.
Marveled and delighted at the
sight of a jovial and cheerful
John I came over for a greeting.
After the exchange of our usual
bear hugs with him and his
enchanting family John invited
me, as he has done for years,
to their Christmas party.
To describe John Thomas
adequately one must refer to
him as a bull of a man. Strong,
tenacious, enterprising and
loyal; he is one of those few
individuals admired by all who
meet him. John is a family
man of the greatest magnitude.
Totally devoted as are his chil-
dren and his wife Aurora he is
part of a family of avid profes-
sional fishers.
The Christmas party at the
Thomas house had a special
meaning this year. Is it a mir-

Tampa Stadium, November 4, 1967. As the University of Tennessee prepares-
to visit Tampa for the Outback Bowl on New Year's Day, it's worth remember-
ing that 40 years ago the Volunteers helped open the new Tampa Stadium
against the University of Tampa Spartans. Although.the third ranked Vols
defeated the Spartans 38-0, a crowd of over 27,000 enjoyed the debut of
Tampa's $4 million showcase stadium. While the original Tampa Stadium is
long gone having been replaced by Raymond James Stadium in 1998 the
opening of the stadium represents one of the most significant moments in
Tampa sports history. Travis Puterbaugh, a native ofLakeland, Fla., earned
a communications degree from Loyola University ofNew Orleans and an
M.A. in history from the University of South Florida. He is currently em-
ployed as the Collections Managerfor the Tampa Bay History Center, and
