Local Democratic Party Trea-
surer Tom Squires removed $1,200
in party money in $200 cash trans-
actions from ATMs over a couple
of weeks.
His reason for the strange with-
drawals was that he was going to
redeposit it in another bank to use


320


2


the money for party expenses at a
Democratic State Fair booth. They
story's strangeness is enhanced by
the fact that he had no authoriza-
tion to open another account or to
withdraw the money. He reported
that the money was lost or stolen
and he paid back the funds with


his own money.
After the initial shock of learn-
ing about the incident, Party
Chairman Mike Suarez and Vice
Chair Deborah Cope did what
any sensible leaders would do and
asked for Squires' resignation.
He gave it to them but felt he did
nothing wrong, although in the
letter he admitted his handling
of the money was a careless and
foolish error.
Squires immediately had sec-
ond thoughts and asked in writing
to have his resignation rescinded
and to have his powers as trea-
surer restored.
In the wake of this and with
little support from the DEC Steer-


ing Committee, Chairman Suarez
and Vice Chair Cope resigned.
On Wednesday night, the DEC
Steering Committee accepted
Suarez and Cope's resignations
and, in a move that astounded
us, rescinded Squires' resignation
and reinstated him as treasurer, a
move that will likely cause some-
one in the DEC to file a grievance,
which will trigger a state party
investigation into the inept money
handling.
We have witnessed many bi-
zarre and strange moments in our
years of observing the local party,
but this takes the cake.

LVale la pena el Mundial de B6isbol del 2009?
A mi juicio el pasado Mundial de Beisbol ganado por
Jap6n fue un fiasco. Esto por dos razones: la primera es que
la pelota no es; en rigor, un deporte mundial. Mientras la
FIFA tiene m6s afiliados que la ONU y el futbol se practica
organizadamente en unos doscientos paises, s6lo encontra-
mos un b6isbol satisfactorio en menos de veinte naciones.
Por ejemplo, no hay beisbol en Africa y en Europa apenas en
Holanda, Italia y alggin otro sitio que olvidamos. La otra raz6n
del fiasco es que de los equipos realmente competitivos, s6lo
los asiaticos (Jap6n, Corea y Taiwan) y Cuba, tomaron en se-
rio el certamen. Estados Unidos, al igual que Reptiblica Do-
minicana, Puerto Rico y Venezuela, se presentaron con juga-
dores en bajas condiciones y, lo mas grave, desinteresados
en la competencia. Especialmente los venezolanos quienes
. para el juego contra Cuba, llegaron al terreno sin haber dor-
mido, despues de una noche de tragos y rumba.

El afio que acaba de termi-
nar pas6 como huyendole a
los relojes. Cuando me encar-
gue de la secci6n en espafiol
de La Gaceta, el 1o de diciem-
bre del 2006, no imagine que
todo iba a ocurrir tan vertigi-
nosamente.
El periodismo es como un
tunel en el que uno va atando
los nudos donde se articu-
lan el pasado, el presente y
el futuro, para que nuestros
le6tores tengan una visi6n de
conjunto de la realidad, que
siempre se muestra como dis-
persa y confusa.
Anudar y desanudar los
sucesos donde transcurre la


vida diaria es hacer como el
guardagujas de la estaci6n de
tren, que orienta los vagones
id6nticos en su marcha ciega
hacia el destino.
Entonces ocurre como
decia Neruda: "pasan dias
iguales persiguiendose", a lo
cual uno podria agregar (con
su venia), que por eso el tiem-
po no existe.
Sobre todo si se trata de
dirigir un semanario que no
esta exigido por la urgencia de
la noticia, sino que consigue
su objetivo enr la necesidad de
comentar y analizar las reper-
cusiones de esa noticia en el
mundo cotidiano.


Es entonces cuando uno
esta obligado a ejercer un sen-
tido critico que le permita des-
nudar la realidad de sus trajes
de ocasi6n, para entrar en un
dialogo franco con el lector,
como quien conversa amiga-
blemente y no se da cuenta de
lo transcurrido.

La inflaci6n acumulada en el 2007 en Peru super6 la meta
oficial, que la situaba bajo 3%, al cerrar el afio en 3,93%,
inform6 el Instituto Nacional de Estadistica e Informatica
(INEI). La inflaci6n de diciembre fue 0,45%, una de las
cinco mas altas del aino, debido a los usuales incrementos
en el precio de -los transportes y servicios diversos por las
fiestas y cierres de actividades anuales, dijo Efe.

Argentina
La Camara de Empresas de Informatica y
Telecomunicaciones de Argentina prev6 que el sector
mantendrd este aflo el ritmo de expansi6n del 2007, cuando
su facturaci6n registr6 un alza interanual de 20%, hasta
unos 10.914,8 millones de d61lares, segCin Efe.

Cuba
La zafra azucarera cubana 2007-08 marcha bien, con
18 ingenios en labor, dos mas de los previstos hasta esta
fecha, pero mantiene un "dificil pron6stico" debido a los
problemas que dej6 la tormenta Noel, inform6 Granma.
Esta previsto que 52 ingenios participen en la actual zafra,
incorporandose de forma paulatina, segfin el calendario
previsto, pero el tal6n de Aquiles esta en el mal estado de
caminos y carreteras en la zona oriental, consecuencia de
la tormenta Noel, que afect6 Cuba a fines de octubre, dijo
AFP.

Honduras
El presidente de Honduras, Manuel Zelaya, anunci6 que
a partir del 1 de enero, se incrementarian las tarifas de la
energia el6ctrica. "Vamos a incrementar los costos de la.
energia electric a partir del 1 de enero, se le va a subir la
tarifa de la energia al sector industrial, al comercial y a los
altos consumidores", declar6 Zelaya en casa de Gobierno.

Ecuador
Ecuador, que en noviembre regres6 a la OPEP, se fij6 como
una de sus metas para el 2008 recuperar la producci6n de
petr61leo, que cay6 del record de 536.000 barriles por dia
(b/d) en el 2006 a 508.000 b/d entre enero y octubre del
2007, segfin el Banco Central (BC). "En lo econ6mico (hay
que) recuperar una producci6n petrolera, que la recibimos
en descalabro total", manifest6 el presidente Rafael Correa
en un mensaje por Afio Nuevo, segCin AFP.

OEA
El secretario general de la Organizaci6n de Estados
Americanos (OEA), Jose Miguel Insulza, dijo que la
responsabilidad en el fracaso de la liberaci6n de tres
secuestrados por las FARC es del grupo guerrillero y
lament6 la polemica entre los mandatarios de Venezuela y
Colombia. "Aqui los responsables son los secuestradores,
los que tienen a esta gente", afirm6 Insulza en declaraciones
desde Washington este miercoles a radio Cooperativa de
esta capital. Agreg6 que "lo principal es no confundir en
ningin caso d6nde estdn los verdaderos culpables de esto",
resefi6 AP. Insulza asegur6 que "los responsables no son ni
el presidente Uribe, que hace todo lo que puede por llevar
un plan de paz a su pais, ni el presidente Chavez, que en
esto efectivamente ha hecho un gran esfuerzo personal".
Dijo que la polemica sobre la responsabilidad en el fracaso
de la liberaci6n de los tres secuestrados s6lo le hace el
juego a las FARC.
Chile
Cientos de personas abandonaron sus hogares en la
zona del volcan Llaima luego que este entr6 en erupci6n
y registr6 numerosas y violentas explosiones durante la
noche, pero las autoridades dijeron hoy que a-in no es
necesaria una evacuaci6n masiva. La directora de la Oficina
Nacional de Emergencia, Carmen Fernmndez, indic6 que
se mantiene el estado de "alerta amarilla" en el area del
volcan, 650 kil6metros al sur de Santiago de Chile, pero
que no hay sectores poblados considerados en riesgo. Tras
comenzar la erupci6n ayer por la tarde,- las autoridades
evacuaron a 150 turistas y empleados forestales del Parque
Nacional Conguillio, donde se ubica el volcdn que tiene
3.215 metros de altura, indic6 AP. Ferndndez dijo que
53 personas permanecen aisladas en el sector, y que se
proyecta evacuarlas por aire. En Melipeuco, la localidad
mas cercana al volcan, cientos de personas abandonaron
sus hogares y durmieron a la intemperie o en refugios.

John Edwars manifest6 que si es electo presidente podria retirar las tropas ameri-
canas que estin entrenando al ejercito iraquf y a la policia, como parte de un plan
mis amplio para efectuar la retirada total en un plazo de 10 meses. El ex Senador por
Carolina del Norte que esti en plena campafia electoral para obtener la nominaci6n
presidencial del partido Dem6crata, dijo que extender el proceso de entrenamiento
al pr6ximo periodo presidencial, requerirfa el despliegue de decenas de miles de
soldados para proveer a los iraquies de apoyo logistico y proteger a los asesores. La
posici6n de Edward plantea una mis rApida y completa retirada, que la propuesta
por sus rivales Hillary Clinton y Barack Obama, quienes han manifestado que estin
abiertos a la posibilidad de mantener a los entrenadores americanos y unidades de con-
traterrorismo en Irak. Los planes del Sr. Edwards proponen una inmediata evacuaci6n
de entre 40 y 50 mil soldados. La tinica fuerza que permaneceria en territorio iraqui
seria la conformada por 3 mil a 5 mil miembros de un contingente que protegeria la
embajada de Estados Unidos y posiblemente a trabajadores humanitarios.

Otra Vez, El "Status" De Puerto Rico


.Por: Arturo R. Rivera
Un grupo de trabajo de la
Casa Blanca, que fue designa-
do por el presidente George W.
Bush para estudiar la situaci6n
politica de Puerto Rico, nue-
vamente determin6, en su se-
gundo informe, que el Estado
Libre Asociado (ELA) es un
"status" transitorio y de "in-
dole territorial". Concluyeron
que de continuar el mismo,
seria necesario hacer plebisci-
tos hasta que el pueblo escoja
un "status" permanente.
Este estudio fue publicado
dos afios despues del primer
informe donde se sefialaba
que por el caracter territorial
del "ELA", el Congreso de Es-
tados Unidos podria disponer
de Puerto Rico cediendo la
isla a otro pais. Eso es asi, en
virtud de la ClIusula Territo-
rial de la Constituci6n de los
Estados Unidos en su Arti-
culo 4, Secci6n 3, parrafo 2.
Esta faculta al Congreso de
Estados Unidos a pasar leyes
y reglamentos sobre sus terri-
torios y a disponer de los mis-


mos como su propiedad.
A tenor con esa disposici6n
constitucional, el grupo de tra-
bajo recomend6 nuevamente
que se encamine un proceso
de plebiscito donde los puertor-
riquefios decidiran si mantener
el "status" actual o buscar un
"camino constitucional viable"
hacia un "status" permanente
y no-territorial. Tambi6n el
estudio reiter6 la recomen-
daci6n de que si los puertor-
riquefios escogen un "status"
permanente y no-territorial se
haria un segundo plebiscito
donde se escogeria entre esta-
didad e independencia.
Una vez los puertorrique-
fios hayan escogido una de
las dos opciones, el Congreso
impulsard un proceso de
transici6n corsistente con la
opci6n escogida. Ademas, el
grupo de trabajo sefial6 que si
los puertorriquefios escogen
mantener el "status" actual,
se celebraran plebiscitos de
forma peri6dica hasta que se
elija un "status" permanente.
El segundo informe dej6


bien claro, para la gente de
Puerto Rico, que la libre aso-
ciaci6n es una forma de inde-
pendencia de Estados Unidos
y no sera inmune a la posibi-
lidad de una separaci6n uni-
lateral por parte de Estados
Unidos. Con relaci6n a estos
informes, en el Congreso hay
proyectos de ley para resolver
el "status" de Puerto Rico, pero
que se distancian del grupo de
trabajo de la Casa Blanca.
En Puerto Rico, a nivel lo-
cal, impera la confusion del
partido de gobierno, que fa-
vorece el ELA, y no acababa
de entender que Estados Uni-
dos buscan ponerle punto fi-
nal a la soluci6n definitiva del
"status".
La soluci6n es sencilla. 0
Puerto Rico se encamina hacia
el tercer mundo con la inde-
pendencia, o nos incorporamos
definitivamente al primer mun-
do con la estadidad federada
de Estados Unidos. Esperamos
que los puertorriquefios abran
los ojos y decidan antes de que
sea demasiado tarde.


Al Pie de la Letra

Por Abel Ibarra


(viene de la pigina 1)
El caso es que como decia
un poeta cuyo nombre no re-
cuerdo, "todo lo real es ver-
dadero hasta cierto punto".
A nuestra manera de ver, lo
que le falta-a esa realidad para
terminar de ser verdadera, es
que nuestro. espiritu se meta
en el laberinto de lo cotidiano
a punta de imaginaci6n, a
punta de esfuerzo creador, a
punta de punta, para agregar-
le nuestra propia experiencia
y cerrar el circulo de la comu-
nicaci6n con nuestros seme-
jantes; muy parecidos a los
trenes y a los dias de Neruda.
Es una gran fortuna ejercer
el periodismo en una democra-
cia plena como la de Estados
Unidos. La democracia es un
espacio abierto que los griegos
inventaron para que podamos
discutir nuestros asuntos de
manera libre como ocurre en
este pals.
Pero tambien las noticias
resefian que el 2007 fue el
mas sangriento para la prensa
desde 1994, con 134 periodis-
tas muertos, principalmente en


Irak, Somalia y Pakistan, segun
el balance anual de Reporteros
sin Fronteras (RSF).
Los ataques a la prensa no
s6lo se extreman con el asesinato
de opositores a gobiernos to-
talitarios como en el caso de
Anna Politkovskaya en la Ru-
sia de Putin, sino que se evi-
dencian en la persecuci6n a los
medios como ocurri6 en el caso
del cierre de RCTV, la televisora
mas antigua de Venezuela.
A la fecha del 1 de enero
del aito que comienza, 135 pe-
riodistas estan encarcelados
en el mundo y Cuba es el se-
gundo en la estadistica con 55
detenidos.
Y esto no es mas que el
resultado de ese sentido critico
al que hacemos referencia. El
mismo que hemos ejercido
desde que nos encargamos
de dirigir estas paginas y que
ha traido como consecuencia
algunos enfrentamientos,
diatribas y confrontaciones.
Pareciera ser que no
estamos acostumbrados a que
se nos hagan sefialamientos y
criticas, a las cuales siempre
se debe responder con un


-didlogo franco y amistoso.
A veces solemos responder
a cualquier sefialamiento
de nuestros semejantes con
actitud equivocada y defensiva.
En vez de utilizar el cerebro
para el dialogo, escogemos
la piel como refugio; piel que
suele ser demasiado delgada y
por eso las palabras se vuelven
agujas que taladran hasta
dejar heridas.
Sin embargo y a pesar
de lo espinoso de algunas
discusiones y diferencias
con miembros de nuestra
comunidad, siempre aparecen
publicadas los distintos puntos
de vista en igual dimension,
para que el lector saque sus
conclusiones.
Es quiza por eso que esos
lectores nos han dado su
apoyo. El espiritu democrdtico
que conservan las pdginas de
La Gaceta es uno de nuestros
avales.
Y, claro esta, el esmero con
el cual tratamos la informaci6n,
ademas del carifio que
ponemos en la promoci6n de la
comunidad hispana. Vale.

La bebe naci6 con 13 sema-
nas de anticipaci6n, cinco se-
manas despu6s de la operaci6n
realizada en el Hospital Gen-
eral de Tampa, tiene 9 meses y
esta muy saludable. El doctor
Ruben Quintero public6 un in-
forme de la intervenci6n quirdr-
gica en la edici6n de diciembre
del Boletin de Medicina Mater-
no-Fetal y Neonatal.
"Sin 61el (el doctor Rub6n
Quintero), ella no estaria aqui",
dijo Elizabeth Guinea, el martes
en la tarde, mientras sostenia a
su hija, Mia Bela Demier, en su
regazo
El desorden que afect6 a Mia
se llama vasa previa y puede
provocar que el beb6 muera
desangrado durante el parto,
si la madre no opta por realizar
cesArea, incluso antes de co-
menzar el trabajo de alumbra-
miento. La cirugia que realiz6
Quintero representa una alter-
nativa, aunque no est6 indicada
para todos los casos.
"Estamos introduciendo un
concepto potencialmente in-
novador", dijo Quintero, profe-
sor y director de la divisi6n de
medicina materno-fetal de la
Escuela de Medicina de la Uni-
versidad del Sur de la Florida.
"Ahora que sabemos que es
factible, puede ser sometido a
prueba", afiadi6.
Quintero dijo que la t6cnica
requiere mayor estudio, pero
considera que la cirugia fue un


A Guirnea, de 38 afios, le diag-
nosticaron "vasa previa" con un
ultrasonido de alta tecnologia
cuando tenia cinco meses de
embarazo. Guinea presentaba
lo que se conoce como vasa
previa tipo 2, que divide la pla-
centa en dos partes, una de las
cuales tiene adheridos los va-
sos sanguineos del beb6, que
se rompen al comenzar el tra-
bajo de parto.
Al plantearse y ser aceptada
la cirugia, Quintero utiliz6 un
laser endosc6pico insertado en
el fitero, para cerrar los vasos
sanguineos anormales mediante
fotocoagulaci6n con laser. Es la
misma t6cnica que emplea en
la cirugia por la que Quintero
es mas conocido en su trabajo
como medico y con la que cier-
ra los vasos anormales en la
placenta de fetos gemelos que
sufren del sindrome de trans-
fusi6n de gemelo a gemelo: uno
de los fetos recibe demasiados
nutrientes y el otro demasiado
pocos. Ambos suelen mori-


i medico

nundial
Quintero, de 49 afios, es tam-
bi6n ampliamente conocido
por desarrollar la t6cnica para
identificar los vasos anormales
que deben ser cerrados. Parte
del procedimiento, que aun re-
alizan s6lo unos pocos ciruja-
nos, lleva su nombre.
Los padres de Mia, Elizabeth
Guinea y su esposo, el gerente
financiero Cris Demier, no de-
moraron para decidirse a re-
alizar la operaci6n. Dos cosas
los convencieron. Quintero ha
realizado cientos de cirugias
con laser endosc6pico en fetos
gemelos y, por otra parte, el
cord6n umbilical de Mia estaba
adherido a la parte mas grande
de la placenta, por lo que podria
recibir suficientes nutrientes
incluso despu6s de cerrar los
vasos sanguineos que la conec-
taban con la parte mis peque-
fia de la placenta. La operaci6n
cont6 con el permiso previo del
comit6 de 6tica y de la direc-
ci6n de investigaci6n del Hospi-
tal de Tampa.Aunque Quintero
considera que la operaci6n fue
un 6xito, no se efectuara fre-
cuentemente. El desorden se
presenta en uno de cada 2.000
a 5.000 nacimientos. Se puede
realizar s6lo en casos de "vasa
previa tipo 2".
Por otra parte, la cirugia no
es la' unica opci6n para salvar
al bebe. En muchos casos, los
medicos pudieran considerar
que esperar y tratar de realizar
cesarea antes de t6rmino es me-
nos riesgoso que una operaci6n
innovadora que pocos pueden
efectuar. Puede ser, tambi6n,
que los padres prefieran no op-
tar por la cirugia que, ademas,
puede .resultar costosa pues,
por su character experimental,
no esta cubierta por los segu-
ros de hospitalizaci6n. "Algunos
dirian que no tiene sentido, si


no hay complicaciones", indic6 cial de interns en cirugia fetal de
el m6dico Anthony Johnson, la Sociedad de Medicina Mater-
gineco-obstetra de la Escuela no-Fetal de EEUU. Describe a
de Medicina de Baylor, que Quintero como a un "verdadero
tambi6n preside el grupo espe- maestro".

Que los suefios se hagan realidad
Por Alfredo Trillo
Enero es promesa oliendo a culpa quemada. Lo equivocado
que fuimos es cosa del pasado y a la inconformidad le llega su
revancha. Por eso es bueno que los afios terminen, porque asi
podemos decir "borr6n y cuenta nueva" y, aunque el uiltimo
segundo de un afio se da la mano con el primero del siguiente,
en ese apret6n de manos damos un salto de la mediocridad
hecha costumbre a la posibilidad de ser mejores, porque cada
afio el coraz6n retofia y le brotan flores, y con ese ramillete en
el pecho de buenos prop6sitos seguimos caminando.
Enero nos reencuentra con nosotros mismos y con quienes
queremos ser, para que volvamos a sofiar con los ojos abiertos
los suefios que quiza ya habiamos tenido pero que ya habia-
mos dejado de sofiar.
Buscar, querer, ir hacia... llam6mosle "los suefios", nos im-
pulsa a seguir adelante, asi nuestra responsabilidad no tenga
que ver tanto con l1egar como con haber andado.
Perd6n si no brindo -pues- por la realizaci6n de los suefios.
Brindo, en cambio, porque 6stos est6n puntuales a la hora de
las acciones, ddndoles, a 6stas, direcci6n y sentido en medio
de la oscuridad.
Y, sobre todo, brindo porque en este mundo se pueda seguir
sofiando. iSalud!

Este es el texto de un programa de
television destinado a comentar el origen
de las palabras que conforman nuestro
idioma espafiol. Es transmitido todos los miercoles a las
11 p.m. por Univisi6n Tampa, en el programa Noticias 62.
ENERO
Los meses tienen nombres sonoros que de tanto repe-
tirse guardan una memoria exacta de las razones que le
dieron su nombre a cada uno de ellos. Por eso, hoy, en
pocas palabras, llegaremos hasta el origen y significado de
"Enero".
En la mitologia romana Jano, que en latin se escribe
Janus, es un dios que tiene dos caras, una que mira hacia
el este y otra hacia el oeste, es decir, hacia el comienzo y el
final del dia. Jano era el dios de las puertas, de los comien-
zos y los finales, del pasado y del futuro y por esa raz6n se
le consagr6 el primer mes del afio. Fue entonces cuando al
pasar del tiempo, el nombre Janus o Jano, cambi6 a Januarius,
de alli a Janero y, finalmente a Enero, para que cada afio
encomendemos nuestra vida a Dios, que esta al final y al
comienzo de todo.

I Polii a Patrulla!


Misteriosa explosi6n en
Tampa
Una misteriosa explosi6n
ocurrida en la W Berry Avenue
rompi6 la calma del tranquilo
vecindario del area. El hecho
ocurri6 en las primeras horas
de la mafiana del nuevo afio y
caus6 dahios en varias residen-
cias. Los vecinos se vieron ob-
ligados a colocar protecci6n en
sus ventanas para resguardarse
en caso de nuevas explosiones.
La policia de Tampa dio unos
pocos detalles del fen6meno que
dej6 algunos huecos en el pavi-
mento. La familia Millar, habi-
tante del sector, temi6 en un
momento que pudiera ser un
ataque terrorista, dijeron secan-
dose las lagrimas.

Fallece en la Via


Oficiales de la Oficina del
Sheriff del Condado de Hills-
borough fueron solicitados para
hacerse presentes en un acci-
dente de trdfico que se suscit6
en Durant Road y Thames Place,
que involucr6 un vehiculo que
result6 volcado. Luego se deter-
min6 que el vehiculo Mercedes
Benz Sl 500 del 2004 habia
sido robado. De acuerdo a testi-
gos del hecho, el vehiculo venia
a una gran velocidad cuando
se sali6 de la autopista sobre
el hombrillo de la parte sur de
Thames River Place. El vehiculo
se desplaz6 embistiendo contra
varias defensas y dos cercas de
casas del vecindario, antes de ir
a estrellarse contra una pared de
ladrillos y .terminar volcado. El
pasajero huy6 a pie pero fue cap-
turado breves momentos despu6s.

Por Alexis Ortiz


El conductor fue conducido por
via area al Hospital General de
Tampa donde falleci6 debido alas
heridas.

Asaltado en la Calle
Charles Frederick Jr. se des-
plazaba en su patineta cuando
dos individuos se le aproximaron
y le dijeron que se tendiera en el
suelo. Estos le solicitaron dinero
pero la victima les manifest6 que
no tenia, por lo que fue abaleado
en la espalda. La victima corri6
hacia Belle Whittier Elemen-
tary School del 1080 N de la 22
avenida y llam6 a sus padres a
trav6s de su tel6fono celular para
que lo asistieran. Oficiales de la
policia llegaron al lugar y le sumi-
nistraron los primeros auxilios.
Luego fue conducida al Hospital
General de Tampa donde se en-
cuentra en situaci6n critica. No
hubo testigos debido a que la es-
cuela estaba cerrada.

Robo de Banco
Un individuo sin identificar


entr6 al AmSouth Bank localiza-
do en el 3414 de Lithia Pinecrest
Road, donde le entreg6 una nota
al cajero en demanda de dinero.
El cajero le solicit6 que se quitara
el pafiuelo que portaba en la cara
y los lentes de sol, lo cual hizo que
el individuo se pusiera nervioso y
saliera del banco sin cumplir sus
prop6sitos. Fue entonces cuando
se decidi6 a ir al Bank of America
localizado en el 300 de Parsons
Avenue Sur en Brandon e hizo lo
mismo que la vez anterior. El in-
dividuo recibi6 una cantidad no
revelada de dinero junto con un
paquete explosivo que se activ6
cuando el individuo sali6 hacia el
estacionamiento. El delincuente
debe tener quemas las manos y
el pecho. Cualquier informaci6n,
por favor suministrarla a la Ofi-
cina del Sheriff del Condado de
Hillsborough al 813-247-8200 o
a Crime Stoppers al 1-800-872-
8477.

Intento de Secuestro
Amanda Carrol estaba mane-
jando hacia su casa y cuando
fue a estacionar frente a 6sta, vio
que una pick-up negra se habia
estacionado detras de ella. Un in-
dividuo camin6 hasta el carro de
la victima dici6ndole que andaba
buscando a alguien. Esta trat6 de


cerrar la puerta de su carro pero
el individuo logr6 evitarlo, por lo
que trat6 de arrimarse hasta el
asiento del pasajero para escapar
de su perseguidor. Pero el sos-
pechoso la alcanz6 y la arrastr6
hasta si, logrando meterla dentro
de la pick-up, cuando 6sta co-
menz6 a defenderse a mordiscos.
El individuo no tuvo mas remedio
que huir de la escena del intento
de secuestro. Cualquier infor-
maci6n, por favor suministrarla a
la Oficina del Sheriff del Condado
de Hillsborough al 813-247-8200
o a Crime Stoppers al 1-800-872-
8477.

Atracadores Callejeros
Cuatro amigos se encontra-
ban en la parte delantera de sus
residencias cuando 4 individuos
armados los amenazaron y los
obligaron a tenderse en el suelo.
Los sujetos le exigieron la entrega
de sus carteras y halaron a una
de las muchachas a entregarle
su bolso. Esta fue golpeada en
la parte trasera de su cabeza
con la pistola cuando trat6 de le-
vantarse. Los sujetos escaparon
hacia Roma norte. Las heridas
fueron menores y no requirieron
tratamiento. Aproximadamente
dos horas mas tarde ocurri6 otro
asalto en el 6926 de Orleans.

Cuba no puede impedir el
boxeo profesional
Latinoam6rica ha sido gran
protagonista del pugilismo
rentado con campeones mun-
diales de la talla de los argen-
tinos Pascual P6rez y Juan
Carlos Monz6n; los boricuas
Carlos Ortiz y Tito Trinidad;
el colombiano Pambele; el
panameflo Mano e' Piedra
Durdn; el mexicano Julio C6s-
ar Chavez; los venezolanos
Morocho Hernandez y Antonio
G6mez; el brasilero Eder Jof-
fre; el nica Alexis Argfiello y
los cubanos Chocolate, Gavi-
lan, Benny Kid Paret, Ulti-
minio Ramos y Mantequilla
Napoles... Pero la organizaci6n
del deporte cubano ha impe-
dido que grandes campeones
amateurs como, Te6filo Ste-
venson y Felix Savon, hici-
eran carreras seguramente
exitosas en el profesional.
Pero como la realidad es libre
y pulveriza los dogmas, varios
peleadores que desertaron de
Cuba tuvieron o estin teniendo
desempefios deslumbrantes
en el boxeo profesional, en-
tre otros: Juan Carlos G6mez,
.Diosbelis Hurtado, Joel Casa-


mayor, Odlander Solis, Yoan
Pablo Hernandez, Yuriorkis
Gamboa, Yan Barthelemi,etc.
Ahora los grandes promo-
tores le tienen la vista puesta
al peso pesado, mejor boxe-
ador cubano del 2007, Osmay
Acosta, quien sera una de las
atracciones principal en las
Olimpiadas de Pekin de agosto
del presente afio.
Se cayeron los equipos de
Miami
Los Marlins terminaron la
campafia del 2007 revolcan-
dose en los filtimos lugares
del b6isbol de grandes ligas;
los Dolphins tuvieron su peor
temporada, uno ganado y
quince perdidos, en 41 afios de
presencia del team en la NFL;
y, los Heat cerraron el afio en
el s6tanro de la NBA, con 8 ga-
nados y 23 derrotas. Es algo
preocupante. Para el 2008
los Marlins iran incluso mAs
d6biles sin Miguel Cabrera y
Dontrelle Willis y los Dolphins
y Heat se debaten en la incer-
tidumbre.

Pablo Milanes revisa la Revoluci6n Cubana


El Germen de la

Cubania


Con palabras de andar por
casa, reales y duras como la
vida, la canci6n cuenta una
historia bien conocida por los
cubanos: "Mi hermano Jacinto
/ que vive en La Habana / no
sabe si su hija / que tuvo una
nieta / que afun no ha conocido
/ sabra que su madre / muri6
de repente. Las autoridades no
lo dejan salir...".
Milan6s, uno de los artistas
mas queridos en el pais y por
mucho tiempo emblema de la
revoluci6n, reflexiona al con-
cluir este tema: "aHa valido la
pena? / Pregunto, no s6 / Ha
valido la pena? / Respondo, no
se".
El pdblico que abarrot6 el
Mella en la presentaci6n de
Regalo, su lltimo disco, re-
cibi6 su mensaje con aplausos
encendidos. Y similar compli-
cidad cosecharon otras de sus
canciones nuevas, como "La
libertad" o "Suicidio". En una
de las estrofas de esta ultima,
el m-isico lamenta: "Nada me


vale lo mismo que ayer / hay
cien motivos para no creer / lo
que ayer era una ilusi6n / hoy
se impone como una raz6n...",
y acaba desgarrado, "quiero
volver / quiero aferrarme a mi
pasado / .d6nde estd?"..
En la platea habia mucha
gente de la generaci6n de Pablo,
la de los afios 60, pero todavia
eran mas los j6venes y adoles-
centes, todos en sintonia. Al
concluir el concierto, una mu-
jer madura que moqueaba de
emoci6n se limit6 a observar
que aquellas letras profundas
eran "algo muy necesario" en
"estos momentos" de su pais.
No pudo expresarlo mejor:
como ella, hoy son muchos los
cubanos que quisieran que las
inquietudes comprometidas de
Milan6s y de otra gente como el
sirvieran de revulsivo en la isla
para el afio que comienza.
Segfin la terminologia ofi-
cial, 2008 serd el afio 49 de la
revoluci6n. Y para bien o para
mal, sera tambi6n el afio de los


El regreso de Her


Por Joseph Meaney
Apenas tres dias despu6s de
la Fiesta de la Navidad, la Iglesia
nos presenta hoy la perturbadora
"fiesta" del martirio de los nifios
inocentes de Bel6n y sus alrede-
dores. Naturalmente, las personas
provida relacionan esta "fiesta"
con la masacre actual de los niflos
inocentes por nacer.
Sin embargo, hay un aspecto
de aquella masacre que rara vez
se menciona cuando se realizan
comparaciones contemporaneas.
Se trata de 'la naturaleza selectiva
de dicha matanza. Herodes orden6
los asesinatos de varoncitos de dos
afios para abajo, porque temia la
aparici6n de un rey que fuera a
rivalizarle el poder, de la misma
manera que, en tiempos mas an-
tiguos, el Fara6n de Egipto orden6
a las comadronas matar a todos
los reci6n nacidos hebreos, para
asegurarse de que ese pueblo con-
tinuara siendo su esclavo.
El autor pagano de origen ro-
mano, Macrobio, relata que el Em-
perador C6sar Augusto, al recibir
la noticia de la masacre perpetrada
por Herodes, que incluy6 al propio
hijo de 6ste, exclam6: "Prefiero ser
la cerda de Herodes que el hijo de
Herodes".


Los documentos hist6ricos
testifican que Herodes El Grande
no perdon6 ni a su propia familia
durante los muchos asesinatos
que orden6 cometer. Tres de sus
hijos fueron ejecutados y, el ufl-
timo, Antipater, fue asesinado s6lo
despu6s de que su padre recibiera
el permiso para ello del Emperador
Augusto, poco antes del nacimien-
to de Cristo.
El aspecto mas horrible del
aborto es que el bebe es condenado
a muerte por sus propios padres.
Cuando la Biblia quiere comuni-
car el infinito amor que Dios nos
tiene, utiliza la analogia del tiemo
amor de una madre. eC6mo podrad
sobrevivir una cultura en la que
los hijos no son protegidos ni por
sus propios padres?
Hoy en dia, debido a las prue-
bas de ultrasonido, los padres
a menudo descubren el sexo de
la criatura que esperan. A nivel
mundial, ello ha causado el fen6-
meno al cual los expertos se refi-
eren como el aborto para elegir el
sexo. Desde 1970, un componente
significativo del mis amplio holo-
causto del aborto estd constituido
por mas de 50 millones de nifias

pero los cambios, cuales sean,

de romper inercias dentro del

que es tarde para dejarlo todo

Tornado de El Pafs-Espafia


odes.

India y una enorme cantidad adi-
cional en otras naciones de todos
los continentes. iQu6 cosa tan ex-
trafia que desde el surgimiento del
feminismo extremista, nuestros
herodes contemporaneos elijan
matar a las niflas mas que a los
varones! Las feministas proaborto
no se cohiben de la criminal hipo-
cresia de impedir la aprobaci6n
de resoluciones en la ONU, que
condenan el aborto para elegir el
sexo.
La historia demuestra que los
poderosos y los cultos son, en gen-
eral, los que planifican grandes
crimenes. La gente que pretende
restarle importancia al horror del
aborto para elegir el sexo, no se
da cuenta de que se trata de una
tendencia que va en aumento,
y err6neamente creen que s6lo
ocurre entre las personas de poca
formaci6n academic. Luego se
sorprenden cuando se les mues-
tra la evidencia de que las tasas de
natalidad mas desproporcionadas
a favor de los varones, ocurren en
las provincias mas afluentes de la
India y de la China, asi como en
las clases mds cultas y adinera-
das. Hasta hay varias naciones
europeas que estan implicadas en
la matanza de bebitas por nacer.


Por Leonardo Venta
La Cuba colonial del XIX puede
ser dividida, con fines de estudio,
en categorias sociales que integran
una piramide que va desde la base
a su cuispide, o viceversa.
En la cumbre se encuentran los
espafloles, presididos por el Capi-
tan General, establecido en la Isla
por la Corona. Para estos peninsu-
lares, los cubanos eran haraganes,
promiscuos, dados al juego, a los
placeres sexuales, a la musica y
al baile. jCuan irrisorio nos parece
hoy aquel "positivismo" del XIX!
Los funcionarios espaholes en
la Isla se valian de sus cargos y
privilegios para enriquecerse ilici-
tamente. Sin embargo, existian
algunos que eran honrados.
En un nivel mas bajo de la
pirnmide, pero ain en la parte su-
perior, se hallan los que poseian
titulos nobiliarios (heredados o
comprados), gente acaudalada y
ociosa con innumerables bienes
materiales.
Les sigue la llamada plutocra-
cia criolla o espafiola que anhela-
ba fervientemente ser noble me-
diante los poderes que le facilitaba
la riqueza. Entre los plutocraticos
tambi6n existian diferencias seglin
la cantidad de bienes acumulados.
En un nivel mas bajo se halla
la clase media, compuesta casi
exclusivamente por criollos ilus-
trados de ideas liberales, adquiri-
das, generalmente, a traves de la
experiencia de la Revoluci6n Fran-
cesa. Eran abogados, medicos y
ocasionalmente sacerdotes.
Mis abajo anri, se halla el
pueblo, integrado por espafioles


y criollos. Los peninsulares
eran, por lo general, emplea-
dos administrativos y policias.
Podian ser comisarios, celadores;
mientras los capitanes de partido
estaban al frente de la vida rural.
Algunos cubanos, del pueblo,
eran empleados de establecimien-
tos comerciales bajo la orden de
propietarios espaholes de bajo
rango, entre los que sobresalian
los gallegos, asturianos, catalanes
y canarios. Tristemente, muy dis-
tante de este grupo social, ilamado
'pueblo', se encuentra, en nuestra
piramide, el sector de la "gente de
color", integrado por mulatos y ne-
gros. Estos se subdivided por su
condici6n de libres o esclavos, asi
como por los matices de su oscura
piel.
Existian los mulatos y ne-
gros libres (estos iultimos muy
escasos), ademds de los mula-
tos y negros esclavos. Entre los
esclavos de "color" el grupo
inferior de la piramide -, el tipo
de servidumbre al que eran
sometidos marca el lugar dentro
del escalaf6n.
Los que se dedicaban a la
servidumbre dom6stica urbana,
sufrian con menos intensidad
los horrores de la esclavitud que
aquellos expuestos al litigo 'del
mayoral en los campos e ingenios
azucareros.
El XIX en Cuba fue el tiempo
de cuna para la hermosa mu-
lata, para el jacarandoso criollo
que aprendi6 a burlarse de la
tristeza, endulzarla, y lanzarla
con desenfado al cielo raso de
nuestra descabellada America.


Invertir en Colombia

Oportunidad inica
Si, porque nunca antes se ha congregado un puTblico america-
no, hispano y colombiano de 6000 personas, en el mismo recinto
con el mismo interns: Inversi6n en bienes y raices.
Porque el Pabell6n Expo Cartagena que-estard dentro de la
US REAL ESTATE EXPO 7 MARKET, tendra acceso a todos los
beneficios de esta gran feria:
1.- 7 afios en el mercado,.con mds de 150 expositores y
6000 asistentes.
2.- El 80% de su pfiblico listo para invertir.
3.- Organizaci6n logistica comprobada.
4.- Extensa publicidad local y nacional.
5.- Y la presentaci6n especial de 5 de los principales conferencis-
tas especializados en Bienes y Raices de los Estados Unidos,
entre ellos: Peter R. West de Massachussets, Joe Meyer y Rich
Levin de New York, G. William James de Georgia y Michael
Soon Lee de California, con temas como: "Secrets of Selling
to Multicultural Markets", "What Realtors Should Know to
Sell Properties From Central America & the Caribbean", entre
muchos otros.
Otra gran razon
Debido al estado inestable que vive el mercado de Bienes y
Raices, principalmente. el de Miami, hay un pfiblico buscando
nuevas oportunidades de inversi6n en paises que demuestren
resultados, como Colombia donde las inversiones de Bienes y
Raices, segfin datos de Fedelonjas este aifo, tuvo una rentabi-
lidad de entre el 18% y 20%.
El Pabell6n Expo Cartagena, ofrecera vivienda en Cartage-
na, y tambien en toda Colombia.

Acusan a Fujimori de matanzas


Siete miembros del grupo
militar encubierto Colina, que
perpetr6 las matanzas de Bar-
rios Altos (1991) y La Can-
tuta (1992), han manifestado
que el ex presidente de Perui
Alberto Fujimori los dirigi6 y
protegi6, public hoy el diario
La Repfblica.

Los testimonios de estos
siete militares, entre ellos el
del jefe de Colina, Santiago
Martin Rivas, fueron dados
en entrevistas periodisticas o
procesos judiciales, segtn el
recuento del rotativo.

El ex presidente peruano
(1990-2000), extraditado des-
de Chile en septiembre pasa-
do por dos delitos de violacio-
nes a los derechos humanos
y cinco de corrupci6n, afronta
desde el pasado 10 de diciem-
bre un juicio por estas dos
matanzas y por el secuestro
del periodista Gustavo Gorriti
y del empresario Samuel Dyer
en 1992, resefi6 Efe.

Durante las audiencias,
Fujimori ha afirmado que
jamsi" autoriz6 la creaci6n
de un destacamento especial
de inteligencia y que reci6n
en 1993 se enter6 de que un
grupo de militares secuestr6
y asesin6 a los estudiantes
de La Cantuta cuando fue in-
formado del hecho por su en-
tonces asesor Vladimiro Mon-
tesinos.

Pero, seguin los testimonios


Suscribase:241-3921


citados por La Reptblica, Fu-
jimori dirigi6, aprob6 y prote-
gi6 a Colina.

El integrante de Colina,
Hercules G6mez, afirm6 en
abril del 2007, que "la linea
de comando para cuestiones
de actividades de inteligencia,
operaciones especiales, se ini-
ciaba 16gicamente con el pres-
idente de la Republica, como
jefe Supremo de las Fuerzas
Armadas".

Precis6 que "el comandante
general del Ejercito tenia que
darle cuenta a el (Fujimori) de
las operaciones que realiza-
ban los destacamentos o las
otras unidades de Inteligencia
que habia a nivel nacional".

En el mismo sentido se
expres6 su compahtero Hugo
Coral, quien sefial6, en una
fecha no precisada por el dia-
rio, que "todas las operacio-
nes fueron organizadas desde
el mis alto nivel, y aunque no
hubo 6rdenes escritas para
matar, si hubo 6rdenes ver-
bales".


Esta semana comenzamos
un nuevo y fascinante afio en el
cual el pueblo estadounidense
tendrd la oportunidad de ir a
las urnas para votar a favor
de un verdadero cambio en la
Casa Blanca. Pero no tenemos
que esperar hasta noviembre.
Los caucuses de Iowa el 3
de enero marcaran el inicio del
proceso para determinar los
candidatos a la presidencia de
los dos partidos. Los votantes,
no los analistas, finalmente
podr&n determinar quien se
merece su voto. En Iowa hay
37,000 hispanos registrados
para votar, y cada uno puede
tener un gran impacto sobre
la selecci6n del nominado del
partido. Pero eso es s6lo el co-
mienzo.
Este afio el Comite Nacional
Dem6crata design al estado
de Nevada como uno de los
primeros concursos electora-
les en parte para asegurar la
diversidad en el proceso de la
nominaci6n, y para darle may-
or voz a los votantes hispanos
en la seleccion del candidato
del partido. Entre el 2000 y el
2005, la cantidad de hispanos
en Nevada aument6 mas de un

Desde 1988, el Comite de His-
toria de la Ciudad de tampa,
le ha dado a la comunidad, la
oportunidad de explorar el le-
gado Afroamericano.* A traves
de programas y eventos tales
como la Celebraci6n del Dia de

participar en los caucuses de
Nevada el 19 de enero.
El 5 de febrero, 22 otros es-
tados incluyendo estados con
poblaciones hispanas grandes
como California, Nueva York,
y mi estado de Nueva Jersey
llevardn a cabo sus primarias
o caucuses.
Este afio, mucho mis que
en elecciones pasadas, los
hispanos podemos tener un
impacto increible. Como Di-
rectora del Instituto del Dere-
cho a Votar, he trabajado
directamente con personas
dedicadas alrededor del pais
a proteger el derecho a votar
de todo ciudadano America-
no. Pero demasiados votantes
elegibles no participan, y al-
gunos ni siquiera se registran.
Mi resoluci6n de afio Nuevo
es simple: voy a hablar con
la gente que mejor conozco
- con mi familia, mis amigos,
mis vecinos para recordarles
que debemos ejercer nuestro
derecho fundamental como
ciudadanos americanos, el
derecho a votar.
Mucho depende de los re-
sultados de estas elecciones.
Todos hemos visto como el
Partido Republicano ha usado
a los inmigrantes hispanos
como chivos expiatorios por
motivos politicos. Me siento


orgullosa de que el Partido
Dem6crata les ha exigido a los
candidatos presidenciales del
Partido Republicano que dejen
de usar la Inmigraci6n como
tema divisivo, y que empiezen
a trabajar con los Dem6cra-
tas para lograr verdaderas so-
luciones. El mismo contraste
existe en otros temas. Mientras
los Dem6cratas luchaban este
afio para aumentar el sueldo
minimo, para reducir el costo
de la educaci6n universitaria,
y para proveerle cobertura de
cuidados medicos a nuestros
hijos, los Republicanos hacian
todo lo posible por impedir
esas medidas. El Presidente
Bush vet6 el cuidado medico
para 10 millones de niflos, y
todos los candidatos presi-
denciales Republicanos lo
apoyaron, y aseguraron que
harian lo mismo. Lo ultimo
que necesitamos es un tercer
periodo del Presidente Bush,
pero eso parece ser lo tinico
que ofrecen los candidatos
Republicanos.

Este es el afio en que
podemos hacer una diferencia.
Salgamos a votar en nuestras
primarias, participemos en
nuestros caucuses, y haga-
mos sentir en noviembre que
tenemos voz, tenemos voto, y
lo vamos a usar.

tamento selvatico del Guavi-
are, desde donde fue trasla-
dado luego a Bogota debido a
su delicado estado de salud,
segin la versi6n oficial.
Cientificos colombianos vi-
ajaron ayer a Caracas, donde
estan la madre y un hermano
de Clara Rojas esperando su
liberaci6n, para practicarles
pruebas de ADN cuyos resul-
tados se contrastardn con un
examen similar* practicado
al menor para establecer si
realmente se trata de Em-
manuel.
Pero segin Anncol, el obje-
tivo de Uribe al anunciar que
Emmanuel puede ser el niflo
que esta en el ICBF era "tor-
pedear el contacto de la co-
munidad internacional" para
la liberaci6n de los tres cau-
tivos, que forman parte del
grupo de 45 que esa guerrilla
pretende canjear por unos


En una columna publi-
cada hoy, Anncol, una pa-
gina Web de los terroristas
colombianos de las FARC,
cuestion6 la hip6tesis lan-
zada el pasado lunes por el
presidente colombiano, Al-
varo Uribe, quien dijo que las
Fuerzas Armadas Revolucio-
narias de Colombia (FARC)mno
liberaron a los tres secuestra-
dos que habian prometido en-
tregar porque no tienen en su
poder al nifio Emmanuel, que
era uno de ellos, resefi6 Efe.
Emmanuel es el hijo que
tuvo en cautiverio hace unos
tres afios la ex candidata a
vicepresidente Clara Rojas,
secuestrada por las FARC
en 2001 y cuya liberaci6n,
asi como la del menor y la de
la ex congresista Consuelo
Gonzalez de Perdomo, habian
prometido los rebeldes el
pasado 18 de diciembre.
Segfin dijo Uribe, las
FARC no cumplieron su com-
promiso porque no tienen a
Emmanuel, de quien su Go-
bierno tiene indicios de que
en realidad es un menor que
estd en Bogota bajo los cui-
dados del Instituto Colom-
biano de Bienestar Familiar
(ICBF) y con el nombre de
Juan David G6mez Tapiero.
Un hombre que se present6
en 2005 como tio abuelo del
menor lo entreg6 a una sede
del ICBF en San Jose del
Guaviare, capital del depar-


500 rebeldes presos.
Para Anncol, esa liber-
aci6n, que fue aplazada por
la propia guerrilla el pasado
31 de diciembre con el argu-
mento de que "intensos op-
erativos" militares compro-
metian su seguridad y la de
los secuestrados, "mostraria
1 verdadera dimensi6n de
las FARC como organizaci6n
insurgente beligerante".
"Ese fue su verdadero obje-
tivo. Mandado por el gobierno
de USA", puntualiz6 el texto.
Mientras tanto, fuentes de
la Fiscalia colombiana, cita-
das por emisoras de radio,
indicaron que el hombre que
entreg6 el menor al ICBF y
que el mes pasado se present6
como su padre para pedir la
devoluci6n, manifest6 mas
tarde no tener parentesco con
61 y dijo a las autoridades que
ese niflo "es de las FARC".

Noticias de Inmigraci6n
Director de Inmigracion de Catholic Charities
Por Jos6 Fern6ndez

Usted califica para su residencia permanente
Pregunta: Me llamo Julio Ramirez y soy originario de M6xi-
co. Como soy residente permanente, el 20 abril del 2001 rea-
lic6 una petici6n familiar para mi esposa y tres hijos menores
quienes estan radicados en este pais desde el afio 1999. En
todo este tiempo solo recibi una carta de recibo de parte del
Departamento de Inmigraci6n y hasta hoy continue esperan-
do por la hotificaci6n de aprobaci6n. Segin fui informado,
la Residencia Permanente ya esta lista para mi familia pero
no las he solicitado para ellas por que inmigraci6n no me ha
aprobado la petici6n familiar. Tengo entendido que debido a
que mi familia entr6 a los EE.UU. antes del 21 de Diciembre
del 2000 y como tambi6n les he sometido la petici6n familiar
y no han salido del pais, ellos estn bajo la ley 245i. Bajo la
ley 245i mi familia puede pagar una multa y podrdn solicitar
su residencia permanente dentro de los EE.UU., sin tener que
viajar fuera del pais y evitar el proceso consular. Quisiera
saber si debo hacer algo para que Inmigraci6n me mande
la aprobaci6n de la petici6n familiar o que debo hacer para
solicitar la residencia permanente para ellos ya que no tengo
la aprobaci6n de la petici6n, uno de los requisitos principales
para solicitar la residencia permanente.
Respuesta: Sefior Ramirez aunque todavia no tiene la carta
de aprobaci6n de parte del Departamento de Inmigraci6n, su
familia puede solicitar su residencia permanente dentro del
pais ya que ellos cumplen con los requisitos bajo la ley 245i.
Usted no tiene que pedirle a Inmigraci6n la notificaci6n de
aprobaci6n de la petici6n familiar de su esposa e hijos. Para
solicitarle la residencia permanente a su familia, lo unico
extra que debe hacer, ademas de mandar todos los requisi-
tos para la residencia permanente, es enviar una copia del
recibo de la petici6n familiar que le lleg6 originalmente de
Inmigraci6n y acompafiarlo con una nueva petici6n familiar
con todos los requisitos, menos el costo de la petici6n familiar
que ya fue pagado y por eso esta mandando copia del recibo
de la petici6n.
Recuerde si solamente tiene el recibo de la petici6n familiar
de su familia es pertinente que revise via Internet (www.uscis.
gov) si su petici6n ha sido aprobada para que no tenga que
completar una nueva petici6n familiar innecesariamente.

Minorias discriminadas en hospitales


Los hispanos y los negros
que acuden a los departa-
mentos de emergencias de los
hospitales con dolor tienen
una probabilidad significativa-
mente menor que los blancos
de recibir analg6sicos opioides,
segCin un nuevo estudio finan-
ciado por el U.S. Department
of Health and Human Servic-
es (Departamento de Salud y
Servicios Humanos de los Es-
tados Unidos, HHS).
El estudio, que analiz6 los
tratamientos para mas de
150,000 visitas a hospitales
estadounidenses relacionadas
con dolor entre 1993 y 2005,
encontr6 que el 23 por ciento
de los negros y el 24 por cien-
to de los hispanos- recibieron
opioides, en comparaci6n con
el 31 por ciento de los blancos.
El 28 por ciento de los asidti-
cos y otros grupos recibier-on
opioides.
"Este estudio ofrece un re-
cordatorio particularmente
marcado de que persisten las
disparidades de tratamiento
entre los grupos etnicos y ra-
ciales", dijo la Dra. Carolyn M.
Clancy, directora de Agency
for Healthcare Research and
Quality (Agencia de Inves-
tigaciones y Calidad en Aten-
ci6n M6dica, AHRQ) del HHS
(Dpto. de Salud y Servicios
Humanos). "Tenemos mucho
trabajo por hacer antes de
que la atenci6n m6dica de alta
calidad este a disposici6n de
todos".
El estudio, Trends in Opioid
Prescribing by Race/Ethnicity
for Patients Seeking Care in
US Emergency Departments
(Tendencias en la prescrip-
ci6n de opioides por raza/
origen 6tnico para pacientes
que procuran atenci6n en de-
partamentos de emergencias
en los Estados Unidos), serd
publicado en el numero del 2
de enero de JAMA. La inves-
tigaci6n fMe financiada por la
AHRQ y el National Institute
on Drug Abuse (Instituto Na-
cional de Abuso de Drogas,
NIDA), parte de los National
Institutes of Health (Institutos
Nacionales de Salud),
"Las disparidades de las mi-
norias en el ambito de la salud
son un problema urgente en
el pals", destac6 la Dra. Nora
Volkow, directora del NIDA, "y
se las debe encarar a traves de-
esfuerzos para capacitar a los
medicos, reducir el estigma y
promover la competencia cul-
tural en todos-los entornos de
atenci6n m6dica".
Los opioides son analgesi-
cos narc6ticos que se utilizan
para el tratamiento de paci-
entes con dolores moderados
a severos. El nuevo estudio
analiz6 el uso de varios opioi-
des recetados con frecuencia,
entre los que se incluyen hi-
drocodona, meperidina, mor-
fina, codeina y oxicodona.
Entre los pacientes aqueja-
dos de dolores en los departa-
mentos de emergencia, el uso
de opioides aument6 desde el
23 por ciento en 1993 al 37 por


ciento en 2005. Esa tendencia
se aceler6 en 2001 cuando la
Joint Commission (COmisi6n
Conjunta) que acredita a las
organizaciones de atenci6n
medical, y el U.S. Department
of Veterans Affairs (Departa-
mento de Asuntos de Vetera-
nos de los Estados Unidos)
iniciaron campafias para me-
jorar la calidad del control
del dolor en los hospitales. El
nuevo estudio es el primero
en medir las tendencias en la
prescripci6n de opioides desde
esos esfuerzos.
El estudio se basa en da-
tos compilador por la National
Hospital Ambulatory Medi-
cal Care Survey (Encuesta
nacional de atenci6n m6dica
ambulatoria en hospitales),
que realiza la U.S. Census
Bureau (Oficina de Censos de
los Estados Unidos). Los au-
tores del estudio, conducidos
por el investigador Dr. Mark
J. Pletcher, M.D., M.P.H. de la
Universidad de California-San
Francisco, analizaron 374,891
visitas a departamentos de
emergencias durante 13 afios.
De estas visitas, 156,729, o el
42 por ciento, estaban rela-
cionadas con dolor. Entre los
resultados del estudio:
Si bien el uso de opioi-
des aument6 en general entre
1993 y 2005, las diferencias
en el uso entre grupos racia-
les y 6tnicos no disminuyeron.
En 2005, ultimo afio de la en-
cuesta, el 40 por ciento de los
blancos aquejados de dolores
recibieron opioides; el 32 por
ciento de todos los demis re-
cibieron los farmacos.
Las diferencias de prescrip-
ci6n entre los blancos y los
no blancos fueron mayores
entre las personas con dolo-
res mas intensos. Entre los
pacientes con dolores severos,
se recetaron opioides al 52 por
ciento de los blancos, al 42
por ciento de los hispanos y al
39 por ciento de los negros.
A los negros se les
recetaron opioides a tasas
menores que a los otros gru-
pos para casi todos los tipos
de visitas al departamento de
emergencias relacionadas con


el dolor, incluyendo dolor de
espalda (33 por ciento para los
negros contra el 48 por ciento
para los blancos), dolor de ca-
beza (22 por ciento contra 35
por ciento) y dolor abdominal
(20 por ciento contra 32 por
ciento).
A los negros se les
recetaron opioides con menos
frecuencia que a los blancos
para calculos renales (56 por
ciento contra 72 por ciento)
y fracturas de huesos largos
(45 por ciento contra 52 por
ciento).
Se recetaron mais analg6sicos
no opioides, como acetaminofen
(comercializado como Tyle-
nol), a los no blancos (36 por
ciento) que a los blancos (26
por ciento).
Las tasas de prescripci6n
de opioides fueron particular-
mente bajas para los nifios
negros e hispanos; los negros
en hospitales gubernamentales,
no federales; los pacientes sin
seguro; y entre todos los paci-
entes no blancos en los hospi-
tales del noreste.
El estudio no arrib6 a con-
clusiones de por que los no
blancos tienen menos probabi-
lidades de recibir opioides, pero
sugiri6 el sesgo racial y/o etni-
co como un factor significativo.
"Las causas de las dispari-
dades en la atenci6n m6dica, sin
embargo, son complejas, y es
improbable que el simple sesgo
racial o 6tnico explique plena-
mente el problema", destac6 el
estudio. La raza y el origen
etnico influyen en todos los
aspectos de la relaci6n entre
pacientes y m6dicos, incluido
el modo en que los pacien-
tes comunican el dolor a los
medicos, que tipos de trata-
mientos se solicitan y el modo
en que responde el personal
m6dico, manifest6 el estudio.
Los autores expresaron que se
necesitan nuevas estrategias
para encarar el manejo del
dolor en los departamentos de
emergencias, tal vez incluy-
endo cambios a los regimenes
para el tratamiento del dolor o
educando a los pacientes para
que pidan especificamente
alivio para el dolor.

MESSAGGIO DI FINE ANNO

DEL PRESIDENTE DELLA REPUBBLICA GIORGIO NAPOLITANO

Palazzo del Quirinale, 31 dicembre 2007


A voi che mi ascoltate, e
a tutti gli italiani, in patria e
all'estero, sento di dovere una
risposta, insieme con il piu
sincero, cordiale augurio. Una
risposta alla domanda che piu
ci inquieta: come dobbiamo
guardare all'anno che sta per
iniziare, con quali preoccu-
pazioni e con quali motivi di
speranza e di fiducia? E' una
domanda non facile, alla quale
vorrei provarmi a rispondere
partendo da quel che dell'Italia
ho visto e ho potuto intendere
lungo tutto il 2007, attraverso
un gran numero di visite e di
incontri.
Ho visto, dal Sud al Nord
- la mia pin recent, intensa
tappa e stata Milano as-
petti eloquenti dell'Italia che
vuole crescere, divenire pin
moderna e pint giusta, e che
sa come per non perdere ter-
reno in Europa e nel mondo
debba vincere competizioni e
sfide difficili. Ho colto nelle
situazioni pin diverse, anche
se non dovunque nella stessa
misura segni concreti di dina-
mismo e di capacity innovativa,
prendendo visione di realiz-
zazioni e progetti audaci. Mi
si e.presentata in questa luce
la realty dell'economia, delle
imprese e del lavoro produttivo;
e la realty di istituzioni indub-


biamente vitali. Ho visitato, in
particolare, Istituti di ricerca e
di alta formazione che possono
ben vantare il titolo di centri di
eccellenza.
Questi sono fatti, e sono
motivi di fiducia nell'avvenire
dell'Italia: il problema sta nel
come valorizzare e incorag-
giare dovunque nel paese
questo dinamismo, nel come
trasmettere questi impul-
si all'intero sistema Italia,
,puntando sull'innovazione e
sul merito, privilegiando forte-
mente l'istruzione, cosi da
giungere via via a un pifl alto
tasso di crescita, a una crescita
pin sostenuta e generale, in
cui sia pienamente coinvolto
il Mezzogiorno. Se questo e il
problema, con esso deve mi-
surarsi la politica governo
e istituzioni rappresentative
ad ogni livello ma debbono
misurarsi nello stesso tempo
tutte le forze sociali e culturali.
Non c'e da abbandonarsi alla
sfiducia, ma da prdporre, de-
cidere, operare.
E c'e da proporre soluz-
ioni innanzitutto di fronte
all'allarme per 1'aumento del
costo della vita, che la parte
pin povera e disagiata della
popolazione pu6 sempre meno
reggere e un'altra parte delle
famiglie, che conta solo su


retribuzioni e redditi insuf-
ficienti, regge a costo di seri
sacrifici, mai abbastanza ri-
conosciuti.
II malessere sociale e qui,
ed e nell'incertezza del lavoro,
in special modo nella difficolta,
ancora per troppi giovani nel
Sud, a trovare lavoro,- nonos-
tante la netta diminuzione del
tasso nazionale di disoccupazi-
one. Il malessere e nella insuf-
ficiente tutela del lavoro, della
vita sul lavoro. Questo e stato
e rimane un mio assillo. Mi
hanno commosso e scosso le
parole di un giovane compagno
di lavoro del ventiseienne Ro-
sario, uno degli operai travolti
nell'orribile rogo di Torino: "Noi
ragazzi che siamo cresciuti in-
sieme a lui da quando avevamo
14 o 15 anni, se lui lotta per la
vita dobbiamo- lottare con lui
fino alla fine". Gli sono rimasti
accanto, poi purtroppo la fine
e giunta. E ieri e giunta anche
per Giuseppe, altro ventisei-
enne, ultima delle vittime di
una vera e propria inaudita
strage. Abbraccio. con affetto i
loro familiari e la citta.
Molti e diversi sono co-
munque i fatti che smentiscono
le rappresentazioni di un'Italia
in declino. Un autorevole .osser-
vatore straniero e ce ne sono
di attenti e non malevoli ha
di recente indicato un punto
di forza del nostro paese in
particolare, la chiave del forte
successo, in questo periodo,
delle nostre esportazioni nella
cultura della creativity, che
deve far considerare grande il
potenziale delle nostre imprese
e del nostro lavoro. E in questo
nuovo esprimersi della cre-
ativita italiana, rivive la forza
di una tradizione, di un patri-
monio e di una sensibilitA cui
dobbiamo dedicare ben mag-
giore attenzione. Dovunque mi
sia recato in visita quest'anno
in Europa e fuori d'Europa ho
constatato quanto grande sia
la forza d'attrazione del nostro
patrimonio storico-artistico e
culturale, antico e moderno.
Un patrimonio che parte da
lontano, come ci dice in ques-
to momento la straordinaria
mostra delle opere illegalmente
sottratte e ora recuperate
all'Italia, .grazie a un esemplare
sforzo congiunto delle istituzi-
oni e dei corpi dello Stato.
E' una mostra ospitata al
Quirinale. Perch6 questo Pala-
zzo, senza eguali al mondo, e
permettetemi di sottolinearlo
tra i luoghi pinu rappresentati-
vi della storia e della creativity
italiana, ed e aperto a tutti gli
italiani, che in diverse centin-
aia di migliaia 1'hanno visitato
nel corso del 2007.
Qui abbiamo accolto anche
tante rappresentanze dell'Italia
piu operosa e generosa. E
dell'Italia che soffre, che lotta
contro le sofferenze e sostiene
l'impegno a combatterle. Mi
ha molto colpito l'incontro che
abbiamo avuto in Quirinale in
occasione della Giornata dedi-
cata alle persone con disabilitA:
abbiamo visto queste persone
non rassegnate, impegnate a
esprimere una speranza attiva
realizzando al meglio se stesse
grazie a una splendida rete di
solidarietd. E ci6 ci dice che
grande e anche il potenziale
umano e morale di cui l'Italia
dispone.
Vi sto parlando poco di
quel che accade nella sfera
della political e delle istituzioni.
Ma non certo perched non sia
importante: piuttosto perched


vorrei richiamare 1'attenzione
su quel che di pit ampio vive
e conta nel paese, sulle realty
e sulle responsabilitd che non
possono ridursi alla sfera della
politica. Siamo poi in un mo-
mento in cui molto si discute
sul bilancio di attivita del gov-
emo e sulle critiche e richieste
dell'opposizione: se ne discute
in liberty e con asprezza, e non
possono esserci interferenze da
parte mia, in nessun senso.
Posso solo dire che per con-
solidare e generalizzare tutti
i fenomeni e fermenti positivi
che ho richiamato, per met-
tere a frutto le potenzialitd
su cui l'Italia pu6 contare, e
comunque indispensabile
che si adottino alcune riforme
in campo istituzionale e che
si crei un nuovo, piul costrut-
tivo clima politico, fondato su
una effettiva legittimazione
reciproca. Mi sono speso a
tal fine sin dall'inizio del mio
mandato, e insister6 nelle mie
sollecitazioni e nei miei appelli:
ora che uno spiraglio di dialogo
si e aperto, con il contributo
di entrambi gli schieramenti
politici, specie sulla riforma
elettorale, occorre assoluta-
mente evitare che 1'occasione
vada perduta. Quali siano le
condizioni, da un lato, per la
continuity dell'azione di gov-
emo, e dall'altro, per un esito
positivo del confronto sulle
riforme, to si vedra presto in
Parlamento.
Torno ora su considerazioni
che si rivolgono a voi tutti, a
noi tutti come italiani. Pos-
siamo avere piud fiducia in noi
stessi, ma dobbiamo -essere
piu esigenti verso noi stessi.
Ci preoccupano giustamente
1'insicurezza e la criminality; ci
preoccupano difficoltd e feno-
meni legati a una immigrazione
in rapida crescita. Non si pos- .
sono tuttavia ignorare i risul-
tati ottenuti colpendo i vertici
delle organizzazioni mafiose, o
conseguendo una diminuzione
di varii tipi di reato: si tratta di
risultati di cui va dato merito
alla magistratura e alle forze
dell'ordine, apprezzandone
.1'impegno sempre rischioso
e garantendo loro mezzi ad-
eguati. Ma quel che pit conta,
perched ciascuno possa fare
la sua parte, e liberarsi dalle
paure che non fanno ragionare
e dai particolarismi che non
fanno decidere.
La paura pu6 far dimenti-
care i limiti e i diritti da rispet-
tare nell'azione che va condotta
a tutela della sicurezza dei
cittadini; la paura pu6 far de-
generare la-fondata richiesta
dell'osservanza della legge e
delle regole da parte degli im-
migrati in minaccia inammis-
sibile di violazione della liberty
di culto per tutte le confes-
sioni religiose e della dignity
di quanti, provenienti da paesi
lontani e vicini, operano nel
nostro paese soddisfacendone
esigenze e domande concrete.
Paure irragionevoli e parti-
colarismi, politici o localistici,
emergono in troppi casi: impe-
dendo, ad esempio, la soluzi-
one del sempre piui allarmante
problema dei rifiuti in Cam-
pania, con grave danno per
le condizioni e per imaginee
di una cittd e di una regione
nelle quali invece non mancano
energie positive, realtA nuove e
iniziative di quality.
Essere esigenti verso noi st-
essi significa impegnarci a dare
prove effettive di senso civico,
dalle piuC semplici alle piun im-

pegnative, come quelle offerte
dal coraggioso esporsi degli
imprenditori siciliani contro
pizzo e mafia; a dare prove di
consapevolezza dell'interesse
generale, contribuendo, ad
esempio, alla salvaguardia
dell'ambiente, alla tutela del
territorio- e del paesaggio, in-
sidiati da nuove spinte specu-
lative. L'interesse generale
esige rispetto reciproco tra le
istituzioni, ancora una volta,
e pia che mai, rispetto ed
equilibrio tra politica e mag-
istratura, fiducia in tutte le
istituzioni di garanzia.
L'interesse generale esige
un pieno sostegno all'azione
internazionale dell'Italia, al
suo impegno, innanzitutto,
nell'Unione europea per fa-
vorirne il rilancio e 1'iniziativa
comune sui temi cruciali della
pace e della sicurezza inter-
nazionale. Qualche settimana
fa, portando negli Stati Uniti la
voce unitaria del nostro paese,
la conferma di una collocazi-
one internazionale dell'Italia
largamente condivisa, ho po-
tuto verificare come il nostro
maggiore storico alleato ap-
prezzi i contributi e gli sforzi
dell'Italia e dell'Europa in
un mondo drammaticamente
percorso, ancora in questi
giorni, dall'aggressivita del ter-
rorismo e da una molteplicita
di mutamenti e sfide globali
e di gravi tensioni. In questo
momento, siamo perci6 pi-u che
mai vicini e grati alle migliaia
di nostri militari che affrontano
l'estremo rischio quotidiano
- rendo commosso omaggio a
quanti hanno anche di recente
sacrificato la vita in queste
missioni e insieme affron-
tano la fatica dell'impegno
umanitario, in aree tra le piui
critiche di questo mondo.
Lo fanno, lo facciamo nello
spirito della Costituzione re-
pubblicana.
Ecco, vedete, ricorre da
domani il sessantesimo an-
niversario della nostra Carta
fondamentale: proprio nel
proporci di rivederne alcune
regole, relative all'ordinamento
della Repubblica, dobbiamo
risolutamente ancorarci ai suoi
principi, anche e non da ultimo
ai suoi valori morali, e in spe-
cial modo a quei suoi indirizzi
che non vediamo abbastanza
perseguiti e tradotti in afto.
Ci6 vale per quell'indirizzo
di tutela del lavoro che ho gia
evocato; o per quell'indirizzo
di pari opportunity, in primo
luogo tra uomo e donna, che
si e venuto solo parzialmente
attuando; o ancora per un
indirizzo, quale e stato anni
fa riformulato, di nuovo equi-
librio tra le istituzioni centrali
e quelle regionali e locali. N6
meno attuale e l'indirizzo costi-
tuzionale di garanzia della
liberty religiosa, di reciproca
indipendenza e di collabora-
zione tra Stato e Chiesa, che
richiede un misurato e schietto
confronto tra l'Italia e la Santa
Sede, com'e nei voti ne sono
certo del Pontefice Benedetto
XVI, cui rinnovo un sincero
augurio.
A voi che mi ascoltate, e
a quanti sono in queste ore
raccolti con le loro famiglie,
auguro un anno sereno, per
difficile che sia. E' un augurio
che si ispira a sentimenti e
ragioni di fiducia nell'Italia,
perch cresca e migliori, guar-
dando soprattutto alle genera-
zioni pial giovani e a quelle che
verranno.

La Gaceta Says Farewell to a Friend, Family

Member and Mentor Diane Bowring


by Paul Guzzo
Diane Bowring, longtime
writer for La Gaceta and it's
former sister paper, Commu-
nity Connections, passed away
on Wednesday, December 26
from complications of surgery.
She was 54 years old.
She was born Phyllis Diane
Dickerson on September 2,
1953 in Knoxville Tennessee
to John A. and Beverly Dick-
erson. She married Pearly Ear-
nest Bowring in 1982 and gave
birth to her only son, Josh,
in May 1983. Her husband
passed away just a few years
after Josh's birth.
Her legacy will be one of
smiles, laughter and giving.
Despite living with Hepatitis
C and the liver complications
caused by the illness through-
out her final years, Diane was
rarely seen without a smile.
Her infectious laugh would
echo throughout La Gaceta's
office. There was rarely a joke
she would not laugh at and
rarely a time she was not tell-
ing jokes of her own.
On a personal note, she was
a mentor to me since the day
I met her. During my first few
years at La Gaceta newspaper,
fresh out of college, I often
struggled with my writing.
Diane always took time out
of her own busy schedule to
provide me with advice, walk
me through the writing process
and help me to not just write
a good article, but to tell a
good story. On more than one
occassion she'd come to work
on her day off just to help me.
Diane taught me more about
writing than any of my college
professors. She had a passion
for writing-that was inspira-
tional.
In later years, even when
she no longer worked for La
Gaceta, she was always just a
phone call or an email away,
willing to read whatever I
was writing. She proofread
my first book and proofread


my life in one phrase, it would
have to be the words every wea-
ry traveler wants to see as they
stumble into the restroom at
the LAST REST AREA BEFORE
YOUR KIDNEYS EXPLODE.
You know, the huge map you
can view while you wait for the
cleaning crew to stop laughing.
The map always shows exactly
where you are at that very mo-
ment. It announces in big, bold
letters, YOU ARE HERE. Here
where the BIG RED 'X' marks
the spot. YOU ARE HERE. I
see it as I sprint past, but the
words play over and over, and
it suddenly comes to me like
a flash out of the darkest of
nights and no toilet paper;
So, THAT'S where I am ... I
AM HERE! How easy is that?
Considering I have no sense
of direction except for up and
down, where I find myself can
be scary as hell if I don't know
where that is, but now in this
precious moment of life I know
where I am. I AM HERE! RIGHT
NOW! IN THIS MOMENT! I AM


STILL RIGHT HERE ON EARTH
IN THE BIG RED 'X.'
"So, as with all passionate
Southern storytellers, to give
you the full benefit of this time
capsule view of my BIG RED
X, I'll start at the YOU ARE
HERE sign, then fill in the gaps
from first to last (with loads
of digressing), and then end
where I want to, because that
has always been the preroga-
tive of the South. (Remember,
we really DID win the war.) Of
course, we all know the end
is actually the middle. 'For,
surely, I shouldn't perish dur-
ing the birth of this wonderful
story. Why, I should faint at
the very thought!' I hope you
agree, it's a very satisfying way
to tell a tale, especially the kind
'best left untold,' for now and
always."
Unfortunately, Diane did
pass away before she was
able to complete her memoirs.
But Diane will never fade from
the memories of those who
knew her.


WHAT' HAPPENING
In Old Ybar
By Paul Guzzo


Diane Bowring always smiling, always laughing


every screenplay my brother
and I produced over the years.
Upon viewing one of our com-
pleted films, she would email
me thorough critiques of the
film. Every critique ended with
her writing, "I am so proud of
you."
Perhaps no La Gaceta em-
ployee outside of the Manteiga
family has ever appreciated
what this newspaper meant to
Tampa Bay more than Diane.
She always reminded me that


writing for this newspaper
made me part of history and to
never take this job for granted.
She loved La Gaceta and often
said she considered everyone
who worked here to be her
family.
Recently, Diane began work-
ing on her personal memoirs.
The following is the opening
passage from her memoirs that
she sent to me shortly before
her passing:

An election for chair and vice
chair will occur on January 22.
Those who might consider run-
ning include Bob Henriquez, Pat
Kemp and Michael Steinberg.

Our heart is heavy with the
passing of our good friend Victor
DiMaio. Victor was caring, kind
and always a gentleman. His
special way with people left him
many friends and to our recollec-
tion no enemies. He gave back to
the community at a pace we rarely
have seen. A viewing will be held
on Friday, January 4 from 6 9
p.m. at Our Lady of Perpetual
Help Church, 1711 E 11th Ave. in
Ybor City.
A reception in Victor DiMaio's
honor will be held on Saturday,

at the St. Joseph Church's rectory
cafeteria and will be followed by a
mass at 1 p.m. St. Joseph Church

Here's the continuation of the
year 2007 in review:
July 6
We had an opportunity to listen
to John Edwards at the Tampa home
of Steve Yerrid ... His first goals in the
White House will be to restore America's
leadership in the world and return us to
a position of moral authority.
Mayor Pam Iorio had to make tough
choices last week due to the Legislature's
cutting of property tax revenues by laying
off 121 fulltime employees and eliminat-
ing 133 part-time jobs and 115 vacant
positions. With cuts so broad, the city is
losing quality people. One of those who
will be greatly missed is historic preserva-
tion manager Del Acosta.
July 13
Hillsborough County will lay off 100
positions, according to rough estimates
by County Administrator Pat Bean. One
who is definitely going is Olga Mendoza,
Hispanic public relations specialist for
the Hispanic affairs liaison. Ms. Bean
explained to us that if further cuts are
needed, she will treat the liaisons equally.
If one goes, they all go.
(Politics ruled Olga kept her job.)
July 20
The Hillsborough County School
District reached an agreement with the
employees' unions to give most teachers
an 8 percent increase in pay and instruc-
tional support employees a 6 percent
raise. Administrators will receive a 5.5
percent increase ...
... We are in full support of the increase
for teachers and support employees ... but
the 5.5 percent increase for administra-
tors is, in our opinion, too high, especially
for top administrators.
Republican State Representative
Robert Allen of Titusville should end the
embarrassment to his state, his party
and family by resigning his elected seat.
He was caught peeking over the stall in
a men's restroom at an undercover police
officer.
July 27
The Tampa City Council should re-
consider its approval of the sale of hard
liquor to be expanded at Raymond James
Stadium to an additional 50,000 fans.
Currently, hard liquor is only served in
boxes and at the club level.
Alcohol is already a chief cause of
fights and disruptions at the stadium,
which routinely arrests or expels 30 to
40 patrons per game.
(City Council did reconsider.)
Atlanta Falcons' quarterback Mi-
chael Vick is dog meat, having been
accused of the most unforgivable crime
in America cruelty to a dog ... What's
sad is if the allegations were over a
crime against a human being he'd still
be playing.
August 3
State Senator Ronda Storms has once
again proven that she can waste taxpayer
money on ill-conceived witch hunts. This
time, Storms chose the Florida Depart-
ment of Law Enforcement (FDLE) to


waste their time auditing the Tampa
Police Department's crime statistics for
the past four years.
(Nothing was wrong.)
The City of Tampa took one year
and four months to attempt the sale of
the historic Dr. Santiago Paniello house
that was relocated to 15th Avenue and
18th Street...
... We write "attempt the sale" because
city staff has been unable to conclude
a satisfactory sale over three bidding
periods ...
... City staff continues to stumble on
their criteria. Their grading of bids is
flawed, the process is unfair, and they
can't seem to follow the rules they set ...
The City Council agreed with us and rec-
ommended that staff award the house to
the second ranked bidder, Eric Ellerbe.
(The house has still not been sold.)
August 10o
Tampa attorney William Reece Smith
will be honored for his storied 50-year
career as one of America's best and most
respected attorneys with the presentation
of the Fellows Award by the American Bar
Association Young Lawyers Division.
Republican presidential candidate
Mitt Romney paid a visit to West Tampa's
La Teresita Restaurant on Monday to ad-
dress a crowd of over 300. After attending
the event we get the feeling that Mr. Rom-
ney has a lot of work to do in Hillsborough
County if he wants to win.
August 17
The state party has set affirmative
action goals for its delegate selection pro-
cess. The party has a goal of 24 percent
of its delegates being African American,
10 percent gay, and 8.9 percent Hispanic.
What is the party thinking setting a gay
goal higher than Hispanic?
On Tuesday a small group of com-
munity activists met at La Gaceta's office.
The discussion was to gather signatures
to place on the 2008 ballot an amendment
to the County Charter that would change
our present system of three at-large coun-
ty commissioners and four single-member
district county commissioners to having
all seven being elected to single-member
districts.
August 24
We are disappointed in our media
peers for their unfair and inflammatory
portrayal of Judge Manuel Lopez as being
to blame for the tragic death of Sgt. Ron-
ald Harrison by gunman Michael Phillips.
Headlines like, "Judge Freed Lawman's
Killer on Bail" and "Why Was Gunman
Freed?" point a finger at Judge Lopez but
fail to evaluate the facts ...
... We continue to respect Judge
Manuel Lopez and are comforted that
he remains on the bench, protecting and
serving our community.
The School Board's evaluation of Su-
perintendent MaryEllen Elia was made
public this week and showed a wide range
of opinions on her performance.
Each board member had nine areas
to grade her on with a 1 to 5 grade for
a possible highest score of 45, which is
"outstanding," and a lowest score of 9,
which is "provisional."
School Board member Jennifer Faliero
graded her near perfect with a 44 and
very little comment, except for a cryptic
and familiar "Get some rest" comment in
areas of improvement. Jack Lamb gave a
43, Carol Kurdell a 41, Doretha Edgecomb
a 40 and Candy Olson a 39. The two new-
est members of the board, April Griffin
and Susan Valdes, had a far different
view of Ms. Elia, giving her a 19 and 23
respectively ...
... This imbalance in grading of the
superintendent leaves us to wonder if the
emperor has no clothes.
August 31
Local Democratic activist Victor Di-
Maio is suing the Democratic National
Committee over their plan to nulify the
results of the presidential preference
primary on January 29 and replace it
with a caucus.
Tap, tap tap, tap, tap that's the
sound of a U.S. senator's career crashing
down. It's also the sound made by U.S.
Senator Larry Craig's (R-ID) foot as he
signaled to the man in the restroom stall
next to him that he wanted a little frisky
fun in the men's room before he boarded
a plane.
School Board member Jennifer
Faliero scored the elusive hat trick last
Friday, or was it that her trifecta paid
off? Ms. Faliero accomplished what few
politicians have. She was the target of
three negative articles on three different
subjects in three separate newspapers.

September 7
Tampa International Airport (TIA)
officials and a large group of local leaders
met last week to discuss the need for more
international service at TIA.
A politicalA-bomb was detonated over
the weekend in Democratic politics when
all of the Democratic candidates signed a
pledge that they would not campaign in
any state that scheduled its presidential
primary before February 5 except for
Iowa, Nevada, New Hampshire and South
Carolina. This means all of them, from
Biden to Clinton, won't be visiting Florida
or Michigan to talk to voters.
September 14
The Univision Democratic presiden-
tial debate on Sunday was historic in that
it was the first time either party directly
addressed issues to the Latin community
in Spanish in such a forum.
September 21
Democratic National Committee
Chairperson Howard Dean is a blatant
hypocrite who deserves an old fashion
tar and feathering. Howard "I have no
shame" Dean had the nerve to send us a
fundraiser email promoting his 50 state
strategy. It says, "He is working to make
sure no voter is left behind."
On Tuesday, 92 retired Tampa fire-
fighters, Tampa policemen and widows
filed a lawsuit suing the City of Tampa,
the International Association of Firefight-
ers local 754, and the Police Benevolent
Association.
September 28
We are very proud that Dr. Ferdie
Pacheco will be named as Hispanic Man
of the Year by Hispanic Heritage, Inc.
Some on City Council are upset with
Mayor Pam lorio. Over the past few weeks
a new rule has started to be enforced.
Only top city staff is allowed to talk to
council members. No longer does council
have the privilege of calling or meeting
with any city staffer.
At the opening of USF's fall classes,
the university touted its growth in mi-
nority enrollment proudly pointing out
its 20 percent gain in African American
students. However, its numbers regard-
ing Hispanics is a mixed bag and shows
the need for USF to retool its Hispanic
recruiting efforts.
October 5
For years Ybor City has welcomed
different waves of immigrants and busi-
nesses. Since its revival starting in the
1980s, Ybor embraced an influx of artists,
then the goths, punk rockers, a large wave
of development, nightclubs, and a residen-
tial boom. Each group has moved in, made
their mark and, in many cases moved out.
But all conducted their business with
respect to Ybor's historic image.
We're concerned with this effort to re-
name or re-brand Ybor or a piece of it as
"Gaybor" by the gay community ...
... Everyone is welcome but don't tread
on our past. We don't care who you sleep
with but please pronounce our name
right.
We predicted weeks ago that Jim Nor-
man's $40 million sports complex would
fail. We thought it would be a 3-4 or a 2-5
vote, but we were surprised that the vote
never came up because Norman failed to
get a second on his motion, Ouch!
October 12
Fred Thompson made his presiden-
tial debate debut Tuesday night at the
MSNBC debate in Michigan. A lot was
expected of Mr. Thompson. We believe he
fell far short of expectations.
Is there another local Republican
power broker on the horizon? Some feel
rogue developer Steve Dibbs wants to be
the next Ralph Hughes or Sam Rashid.
Mr. Dibbs has become infamous for his
role in promoting the near demise of the
Environmental Protection Commission's
Wetlands Division.
October 19
We predict County Commissioner
Ken Hagan will be the next chairman of
the County Commission..
(We were right.)
We were deeply saddened to hear of
the passing of Sammie Argintar at the
age of 87.
Cubans are finding Mexico a prefer-
able route to enter the United States than
rafting across the Florida Straits ...
... Close to 12,000 Cubans took this
path over the last year while less than
8,000 tried the Cuba to Florida route.
October 26
The Tampa Chamber of Commerce
took a delegation of 55 to Charlotte, NC
to see how that area compares to Tampa
with a focus on mass transit, aka light rail
... The problem is that the traditional op-
ponents of rail the County Commission,
our local legislative delegation and the


Page 12/LA GACETA/Friday, January 4, 2008


local Republican Party had no presence
on the trip.
November 2
Presidential candidate Bill Richard-
son took aim at his peers at Tuesday's
Democratic presidential debate for their
continued attacks on frontrunner Hillary
Clinton. His role as peacemaker at the
event immediately started the specula-
tion that he is looking to get into Hillary's
good graces in order to secure the position
as her running mate.
November 9
Over the past few months we wrote
two editorials and made several phone
calls encouraging the School Board to
honor the memory of Sergeant First Class
Paul R. Smith by placing his name on a
school ... the board voted on Tuesday to
name a middle school after Tampa's sec-
ond Medal of Honor recipient and the first
of the only two soldiers so honored who
participated in the Iraq War. We are proud
that the school district will honor a person
who gave his life for his country.
We are saddened on the passing of
Domenic "Don" Giunta last week at the
age of 93.
Bill Stoeltzing passed away Sunday
at the age of 81.
November 16
The Tampa Museum of Art will move
to the Centro Espafiol building in West
Tampa as a temporary 18-month home
while the new art museum in downtown
is being built.
The Roast and Toast of former Mayor
Dick Greco was packed ... his friends came
together to tease the former mayor about
his hair color, womanizing and long ears,
but the real reason for gathering was to
show love and respect for a man who has
done much to shape Tampa.
November 23
The current death toll of U.S. military
in Iraq is 3,873 and in Afghanistan it's
468. Thousands at home will feel these
losses for years. We should not forget the
28,489 wounded, many of whom will be
forever disabled.
According to the Homeless Education
Literacy Department of the Hillsborough
County School District, so far this school
year it has identified 1,200 -homeless
families with children who attend or try
to attend school.
The curtain has drawn closed for
the last time on Jackie Loto at the age
of 68.
November 30
Our hat is off to Judge Monica Sierra
on following her heart and volunteering
to help deliver humanitarian aide to Pal-
estinians in refugee camps in Israel. She
will leave on a three-month sabbatical
Being a migrant farm worker is a
high paying cushy job if you believe what
you read in the Tampa Tribune's editorial
page.
December 7
La Gaceta endorses John McCain.in
the Republican Presidential Primary.
La Gaceta endorses Bill Richardson
for the Florida Democratic Presidential
Primary.
December 14
We commend the Hillsborough Coun-
ty School Board on naming a Lutz elemen-
tary school for George Steinbrenner. His
contributions to the children and teachers
of Hillsborough County are numerous ...
His generosity ofteri goes unnoticed be-
cause he donates thousands anonymously.
To the world, his name is associated with
New York. Those of us in Tampa know his
home and heart is here.
On Friday the legislative delegation
led by State Representative Kevin Ambler
voted to support the "Jim Norman Em-
ployment Act" bill. Well, it wasn't called
that but it should have been.
Kevin Ambler came to the meeting
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 bQards.
December 21
The battle between Hillsborough
County Sheriff David Gee and the West
Central Florida Police Benevolent Asso-
ciation (PBA) over the amount of raises
took an unusual turn that could under-
mine the PBA's position.
Deputy JeffMassaro has collected 357
signatures of sheriff's deputies, detectives
and corporals asking the Public Employ-
ees Relations Commission to decertify the
union's unit, more specifically to revoke
the PBA's certification as a bargaining
agent for the unit.








Taking a Closer Look at the Long Bent Line


By Richard Muga
If you ever drive along the
rural roads of Hillsborough
County you are likely to see
vast and luscious green pas-
tures. These are the fields
where the succulent straw-
berries and other fruits and
vegetables grow. At this time
of the year those spectacular
fields are crisscrossed by long
lines of migrant workers.
Bent at the waist, the long
lines of men and women labor
incessantly during this time
of harvest in the agricultural
fields of East Hillsborough
County. The fields are lined
with the vehicles they drive to
their work sites. The long bent
line is composed in its great
majority of illegal immigrants.
The long bent line works
mostly for inferior wages, with-
out the benefit of worker's
compensation benefits, unem-
ployment benefits or any of the
other benefits that legal Ameri-
can workers normally receive.
They endure the cold, the heat
and the sun but they tena-
ciously persist. Until recently,
many were not provided with
sanitary facilities in the fields.
Some have been abused in the
past. Some have been fired
from their jobs without com-
pensation because they have
complained about injustices.
Some have been physically
castigated for not complying
with intolerable orders. In their
great majority they have re-
mained silent about the abuses
and maltreatments because
the threat of being reported to
immigration authorities.
The field laborers are mostly
paid in cash and, unless they
have a social security number,
they pay no income taxes, nor
are their contributions for social
security or workers compensa-
tion deducted. If they are de-
ducted from their pay checks
or cash payments, one can only
speculate as to the ultimate
destination of those moneys.
The mostly Mexican labor-
ers represent the 'back bone
of our county's agriculture. If
they were to withdraw from the
fields our agricultural system


would in all probability fail.
They are here because we need
them. If the need did not exist,
they would have no reason to
expose themselves to the dangers
and expenses of illegal migration.
The various authorities
continue to make traffic stops
involving the easily identified
laborers for what in many cases
are miniscule infractions. Broken
taillights, lights with insuf-
ficient illumination, cracked
windshields all provide suf-
ficient probable cause for au-
thorities to make a stop. Since
they are illegal immigrants they
have no valid driver's licenses
and carry no car insurance.
Consequently, on any given day
on which Traffic Court is held
in Hillsborough County an
alarming enormity of the defen-
dants are illegal immigrants.
Why is it that if pursuant
to a traffic stop the authorities
identify individuals as illegal
immigrant they are only issued
notices to appear in cases of no
valid or expired driver's licenses
or other infractions? Why is it
that they are not arrested on
the spot, provided with no bond
and ultimately deported? Why
is it that if it is common knowl-
edge that the fields employ
mostly illegal im of migrants
mass arrests and deporta-
tion of those individuals have
not taken place? Why do the
authorities choose to look the
other way when it pertains to
the agricultural workers?
Let us look at some possible
answers: The business of law
coupled to the long bent line is
a tremendous source of income
for our county. The issuance
of traffic citations triggers a
chain of events that supports
hundreds of jobs police of-
ficers, jail personnel, clerks,
judges, judicial assistants,
interpreters, court reporters,
probation officers, private and
state employed attorneys, bail
bonds persons, administrators,
janitorial services and security
guards to name a few. Also, ev-
erything imaginable vehicles,
fuel usage, law enforcement
equipment, utilities, food sup-
pliers, chemical testing equip-


ment and more are used in
the business of processing the
immigrant defendants through
the legal system.
The farms that employ the
thousands of illegal immigrant
in our region are able largely
because of the inexpensive,
consistently reliable and dy-
namic labor force to provide
our fruits and vegetables at what
one can consider reasonably
fair prices. The products are
picked by the illegal workers
and delivered to homogeneous
wholesalers that reside at
various markets. Many of the
wholesale stations within these
markets are also operated by
illegal immigrants. The whole-
sale markets function on their
great majority on a cash-only
basis. Hotel and restaurant op-
erators, retail vendors and the
general public come to those
wholesale markets and pur-
chase the products. Involved
in this multifaceted enterprise
are all the broad collateral
structures to support produc-
tion, transportation, storage,
advertising and financing.
This underground wholesale
fruit, and vegetable structure
injects millions into our local
economy. It also provides sup-
port for elected government of-
ficials. It is also true that some
of the sales and income taxes
may be denied to the voracious
appetite of government.
If mass deportations of field
workers were to take place,
the entire production, whole-
sale and retail of our fruit and
vegetable business would in
all probability suffer a major
melt down. Realistically, there
are not sufficient individuals in
our college-bound, electroni-
cally oriented, obese society
willing to bend at the waist,
day after long day to pick fruits
and vegetables. The economic
consequences to farmers and
all the collateral businesses
of our region would be disas-
trous. Major sources of politi-
cal support Would also dry up
for elected officials.
Is it possible, that the best solu-
tion desired by most is to main-
tain the status quo in the ille-


gal immigrant business for as
long as possible? Is it best to keep
the lines of the law bent suf-
ficiently to allow needy people
to be employed, provided with
a source of income they could
never expectin their countries?
They certainly provide our
agricultural businesses with
a great labor force. Since they
cannot obtain driver's licenses
they keep law enforcement and
the court system busy. They
provide lawyers and bail bonds
people with an interminable
source of business. Except for
the money they send to their
countries, they spend their
money locally. It seems that in
spite of the efforts of the border
authorities, they continue to


provide a long line of bent backs
on our agricultural fields.
Charlie Crist is one of the most
industrious, sincere and honest
governors that Florida has ever
had. Perhaps he will take the
lead in the matter. And maybe
if the issue of driver's permits
for undocumented immigrants
can be resolved in Florida other
states may look here for their
lost leadership. We owe it to
our citizens to have identifiable,
insured drivers on our roads.
In the mean while, the long
line of immigrants laboring in
the agricultural fields continues
to bend at the waist. They do
their jobs well. Unlike our Con-
gress where the most significant
crook on the line begins.

Catching Up with Ed Turanchik


An alternate headline for
this column could be: "West
Tampa is Cool!" West Tampa
is a long-neglected enclave.
Seminole Heights eclipses West
Tampa as an up-and-coming
neighborhood. Ybor City over-
shadows West Tampa with its
Cuban heritage panache. But
West Tampa is coming into
its own, thanks in part to the
InTown homebuilding that for-
mer County Commissioner Ed
Turanchik has carried out over
the past couple of years.
InTown has built and sold
about 35 homes in West Tam-
pa not a bad track record,
given that the first model
homes were unveiled less than
two years ago.
Two separate buyers of
InTown homes are well-to-do
residents of Davis Islands who
are downsizing, selling their.
homes on the tony island in
favor of InTown homes on tiny
lots. Imagine people moving
by choice from Davis Islands
to West Tampa. Ten years ago
the prospect would have been
unthinkable. Even today the
migration startles.
Some background: InTown
specializes in "infill" build-
ing, erecting homes on va-
cant lots in the city bordering
the interstate stretching from
downtown Tampa to West-
shore. Turanchik overcame
a challenge: seeking city of
Tampa permission to revert to
a 25-foot historical frontage
standard on the old lots rather
than the more generous super-
sized setbacks required today.
InTown homes are city homes,
not suburban ranches, with an
emphasis on front porches and
a compact European approach
to packing lots of living into a
small space.
Some news: InTown just
completed and sold its first
"green" home, a 1,440-square-
foot house on West Spruce that
requires less than 50 percent
of the energy needed to run a
traditional structure. Green
homes are nothing new in West
Central Florida. What's novel is
the price tag just more than
$200,000. Most of green homes


built in this area to date Turan-
chik hardly needs introduction.
As a county commissioner, he
promoted the idea of a light-
rail transportation system that
people of lesser vision failed
to support. After leaving office,
he became associated with
two failed projects: a Tampa
Olympics bid and a proposed
Civitas housing development
downtown. Returning to his
Sierra Club roots (the Florida
chapter gave him a Panther
Award in 1989), Turanchik
now enjoys the satisfaction of
providing affordable housing
to first-time home buyers and
empty nesters green housing
at that.
In an editorial last sum-
mer, the St. Petersburg Times
applauded the efforts of busi-
nessmen like Turanchik: "West
Tampa is turning around, and
private not public money is
behind it. Developers and busi-
nesses have committed millions
to bring residents back to one
of the city's oldest and most
storied neighborhoods, resur-
recting the front-porch feel of
a community where people can
live, shop and socialize within a
short walk from home."
How does it feel to step out
of the political arena and into
the realm of business?
"It almost makes you want
to cry," he says of the city's and
county's failure to acquire mil-
lions of dollars in federal grant
money for mass transportation.
"We squandered such great op-
portunities. There was a time
when the money was there.
Now the competition is intense,
and there are billions of dollars
in competing requests, while
the money has dried up."
By contrast, the InTown
home-building venture is
smaller in scale, but rewards
are great.
"I like the fact that your
success in business depends
upon how good a product you
do and not upon politics. No
one asks if you are a Democrat
or a Republican or asks how
you voted on a particular is-
sue," he says. "This is fun stuff
we're doing now."

La Gaceta's longtime friend,
Victor E. DiMaio, passed away
on Friday, December 28 at the
age of 83.
A career insurance sales-
man and veteran of World
War II, DiMaio was known
throughout Tampa Bay for his
many civic engagements, most
notably in Ybor City, where he
was a member of the Ybor City
Round Table and the Ybor City
Lions Club, through which he
helped raise countless dollars
for the South Eastern Guide
Dog Association as a past
president and its longest ac-
tive member. He was a charter
member of the Ybor City Mu-
seum Society and the Alcalde
Association of Ybor City and
a past president of the Ybor
City Chamber of Commerce.
In 2005, he received the Sam
D. Leto Award for his years
of dedicated service to Ybor
City.
Along with his friend Je-
rome Sierra, DiMaio founded
the Catholic Youth Basketball
League in 1954 and remained
active in it through 1984. He
was also a co-founder of the St.
Patrick's Day Association and
a founding member of the Dale
Mabry Sertoma Club; a past
president of the Tampa Torch
Club; and served as past dis-
trict deputy with the Knights of
Columbus. He served as chair-
man for the March of Dimes
and as a board member for
the prestigious Krewe of Sant'
Yago. He was also a longtime
member of the Democratic
Party.
DiMaio was also known
throughout Tampa Bay as one
of the University of Florida's
biggest sports fans.
DiMaio was born in a sub-
urb of Ybor City on February
19, 1924. His father, Dr. John
P. DiMaio, was the first doc-
tor for the Italian Club. His
mother, Barbara Egli DiMaio,
worked in the lunchroom of
Our Lady of Perpetual Help. As
a boy trying to help his family
survive through the Depres-
sion years, DiMaio shined
shoes, sold newspapers and
took on other odd jobs. Upon
graduation from Jesuit High
School in 1942, he joined the
U.S. Navy and served in the
Mediterranean and Pacific the-
atres aboard the U.S. Antigone
as a PT Boat tender and re-
ceived his honorable discharge
in 1946.
Trading life as a seaman
for the college campus, he
used the GI Bill of Rights
to attend the University of
Florida and earned a degree
in business administration
in 1950. While attending the
university, he augmented his
veteran's monthly allotment
by delivering dry cleaning,
working in the school cafete-
ria and serving as dormitory
monitor. He was also a member
of the notorious Tampa Ba-
nanas, the informal fun-loving
group known throughout the
university for their practical
jokes. Other Tampa Bananas
included Dr. Ferdie Pacheco
and former State Senator Louis
de la Parte.
DiMaio met Mercedes Go-
vantes in Tampa and were
married on February 25, 1951.
Together they raised two sons,
Michael and Victor.
DiMaio joined Metropolitan
Life as an insurance salesman
in 1959 and became one of
its top salesman. In 1978, his
total reached the millions of
dollars. In 1974, he was cho-
sen from 25,000 employees to
receive the first Metropolitan
Life Community Service Award
in recognition of the countless
hours he dedicated to commu-
nity service. Until his passing,
he continued to dedicate much
of his free time to civic engage-
ments.
He is survived by his wife,

Memories of My Friend, Victor DiMaio


by Ferdie Pacheco
Today was a sad day. This
month I turned 80. Tibedo won
the Heisman, and the Gators
look good in multiple sports.
My wife Luisita is healthy and
running my entire life. The
main thing is we are both in
robust health, and enjoying a
successful life.
So, what's the problem?
The problem, dear reader, is
I keep losing close friends.
Recently. I was devastated to
hear Vic DiMaio passed on. He
was high on the list of Tampa
Bananas who started out our
lives at the University of Flori-
da in 1946. What a class that,
turned out to be! The Florida
Bananas produced a governor,
a mayor, a senator and several
state representatives, several
All Americans and an All Pro
NFL fullback, and... and... Vic
DiMaio.
Most of us had financial and
familial success led by lumi-
naries such as Dr. Victor Mar-
tinez, a nationally renowned
heart surgeon. But Victor
DiMaio seemed to hover over
us like a giant mother hen. He
saw our progress. He protected
us, he pushed us, he cheered
our every victory, no matter
how small or insignificant.
Through all the 50 years that
have passed since our Gator
years, Victor was there!
Like most of that class,
Victor found his love at the
Matinee, and married the
prettiest girl there. Merci fell
fo'f the skinny ex-sailor with
the charming smile and the
great gift of gab. What a power
couple they became. Working
in tandem, they were powerful,
a force in Tampa politics and


a strong voice in the recon-
struction of Ybor City. And,
Victor became a beloved senior
citizen.
My first meeting with him
was comical. I sat in the parlor
of my frat house, Sigma Phi
Epsilon, with a stack of dirty
clothes to be cleaned. I was
waiting for the laundry guy.
He was late, by half an hour
at least.
He came pounding through
the door, out of breath, talking
a mile a minute. Finally I felt
I knew him from Matinees. It
was Vic Di Maio.
"What the hell are you do-
ing picking up dirty clothes?
I thought you were on the
G.I.Bill."
"Yeah, but I like to make
extra cash."
He finished tagging each
item, and then, he didn't leave.
We stood around looking at
each other.
"What?" I said. "You want
more dirty clothes?"
"No. I want the football
cards. They didn't tell you I
collect the football cards?"
"No, how can I help you?"
"Go up to the bedrooms and
say you are picking up the
cards for Victor, 25c, and bring
them down here. I'll go cross
the street to the S.A.E. house
and collect their laundry and
football cards."
He whizzed out before I
could frame an answer.
Thoughts flew through my
mind, like,"Hey, is this legal.
Can we go to jail? Can we get
tossed out of school?"
Well, the fact that we both
went on to have hugely suc-
cessful lives provides us with
the answer. We just didn't get


caught.
I found Victor a work-a-
holic, but very entertaining,
fun to be around, and a great
friend to have.
Fifty years went scurrying
by, I made my life in Miami,
practiced ghetto medicine,
took care of indigent Cubans,
got involved with top boxing,
had 12 World Champions,
including the greatest of them
all, Muhammad Ali, wrote 15
books, sold over 2 million dol-
lars worth, of art, produced a
movie and wrote a Broadway
musical for Petula Clark, and
sold eight movie scripts.
All through this frantic
period of success I would see
Victor at Cuervos, and then at
the Tropical Cafe6, and always
we would sit and visit as if we
were still classmates at the
university. He was always in
my corner, happy for my suc-
cesses. I found, to my distress,
that the more success I had the
more of my old friends dropped
off. Victor was one of the only
ones that shared each success,
and was happy for me.
My most important and
spectacular encounter with
the ebullient-Victor came at an
unexpected time.
I had been contracted by the
University Press of UF to write
and illustrate a book on the
Cuban experience in Miami.
At this time there were over a
million refugees in Miami.
Lovingly, .1I did this. The
book was a sensational piece
of work. Twenty real life stories
and 20 fine art oil paintings to
illustrate each story. It was a
great piece of work. Then came
a shock! The university turned
the book down. In spite of the
fact that they had ordered the
book, and I had fulfilled my
contract, they turned it down
cold.
Well, I'm NOT a Banana for
nothing. I got three Cuban mil-
lionaires together, and they put
up the money, and published
the book. It was (and is) a fine
piece of work. We were very
proud. I got 5,000 books for my
own. BUT, I had to sell 5,000
books!
I was just hatching a plot
wherein my wife Luisita (a
fabulous Flamenco dancer)
and I would give a concert
at the Centro Asturiano. The
bonus gift for buying a ticket
for $25 to the concert, was an
Art book "Pacheco's Art of the
Cubans in Exile", I would sell
1,000 tickets. Do that three
more times and I would have
$10,000, and still have 1,000
left over for my personal use.
Wonderful. But, how would I
sell 1,000 tickets? My cousin
Gus Jimenez, Jr was the head
of the Centro Asturiano, and
of course, he heartily endorsed
the concert.
As so often happened in
those days, I went to the Tropi-
cana to have my delicious cafe
con leche and pan con man-
tequilla. Sitting there reading
the Tribune was Victor DiMaio,
calling for me to join him.
As we often did, I launched
into my problem. How am I go-
ing to get rid of 1,000 tickets?
I was lost. My cousin broke
the bad news, there were only
about 100 members, and most
were semi dead and senile. I
saw a familiar light go on in
his head. I knew Victor was
thinking.
"We can do that!" he said
pounding the table, his face
lit up by that old salesman's
fervor "Just like we win an
election." He and Mercy were
high up in the political circles,
famous for managing cam-
paigns, and winning most.
"This is NO election. We
can't stuff ballot boxes."
"No, but with your big
name, and my list of sure cli-
ents, we get on the phone, nail
em to buy four or six tickets,


Victor DiMaio always had a good time with his
friend and fellow Tampa Banana, Ferdie Pacheco.

get in the car and go and col-
lect the bread and give em the
tickets."
This I knew was the way,
for this is the way you create
a sellout box office for a great
fight. You nail em with the
phone and the foot work.
"Whewl" I looked at the
agitated face of Victor. He was
on the edge of his seat, a race-
horse being put in the racing
gate. He was puffing fine.
However, Victor was very ill.
Many serious ailments were
pushing him to the cemetery.
He was grey and drawn. He had
difficulty breathing. He looked
like hell. I couldn't ask him to
go campaigning like we used
to when we were 20-year-old
race horses.
"Can you do this?"
"Hell, yes. Phoning we can
do from the house. Then, you
and I can get in the car and
go pick up the money. Piece of
fish. Hell, it's like the old days,
Ferdie, it's a piece o' cake."
Well, it wasn't exactly a
piece o' cake, but in six days
of hard selling we sold out the
place. We had a riotously great
program. The people got their


moneys' worth. I went home
happy with $2,500 in my jeans,
and knowledge that THIS was
the way to sell 3,000 more
books, which I did in Miami.
I never forgot Victor Di
Maio's help. Sick as he was,
weak and unable to do an
eight-hour., day, Victor, never-
theless, did. We were botli in
our 70s, but if you could have
seen us those six days of sell-
ing, you would swear we were
two Tampa bananas, selling,
selling, and selling in their
twenties.
He's gone now, God Bless
Him! No longer can I get up to
the podium when I speak and
point out Victor in the crowd
and talk good about him.
I loved the guy. He was
truly one in a million. Aq far
as I know, everybody in Ybor
City loved him. I know he will
be waiting for me in heaven,
a pile of dirty laundry in one
arm, a stack of football cards in
the other, a new plan to make
money in heaven, and a great
story to tell.
Good night, Sweet Prince,
Your friend,
Ferdie

The scene is the Interna-
tional Dixie Tournament. The
place is the Davis Islands
Tennis Club in January 1940.
Participating in the finals of
the tournament were Bobby
Riggs and Bitsy Grant. Riggs,
the world's amateur singles
and doubles champion, won
the tournament in 1938 and
sought his second Dixie cham-
pionship. Grant, dubbed "126
pounds of tennis dynamite"
by Tampa Tribune writer Pete
Norton, had already won two
Dixie titles.
The match began on Sun-


day afternoon in front of a
tournament-record 2,000 fans,
but was postponed by rain
until the following day with
Riggs leading by a set. Grant
would storm back when play
resumed, winning a five-set
thriller 1-6, 6-2, 6-1, 3-6, 6-3
to capture his third Dixie title
in five years. He then delighted
the crowd during the trophy
presentation by accepting the
D.P Davis Trophy and then
handing it right back to the
presenter, Tampa's mayor
R.E.L. Chancey.
"Tampa has always been


one of my favorite places," Grant
said. "I want this cup to stay
right here so when I get too old
to play for it, some of you good
people will remember me."
The crowd then rewarded
Grant, the Dixie Tournament's
greatest and most gracious
champion, with a five-minute
standing ovation.

The Tampa Film Review to Celebrate Fourth


The Tampa Film Review will
celebrate four years of show-
casing local independent film
on Friday, January 11 from 8
10 p.m. at the International
Bazaar, 1600 E. Eighth Ave.
in the Centro Ybor complex in
Ybor City, by honoring both the
best filmmakers of today and
some of Tampa's legendary art-
ists. The event will be preceded
by live music and refreshments
at 7 p.m.
The event is FREE and
open to the public.
The January show will fea-
ture a "Best Of 2007" lineup.
Each film showcased will also
be presented with an award
named in honor of a legendary
Tampa artist. The Tampa Film
Review hopes such an event
can bridge the gap between
today's artists and those Tam-
pa artists who paved the way
for the successes of Tampa's
current crop of artists. All of
the filmmakers being honored


will be present to accept the
award. Many of the artists for
whom the awards are named
will either be on hand to pres-
ent the award or have friends
or family present the award in
their stead.
Representatives from the
Tampa Theatre will be on hand
to make a major announce-
ment about a new initiative
they will be launching in 2008
that will help provide exposure
for local filmmakers to audi-
ences throughout the area.
The Tampa Film Review
was founded in 2004 by Pete
and Paul Guzzo as a monthly
showcase for locally produced
independent short films. Dur-
ing its first year, its average
attendance numbered just
40. Today, almost 150 people
a month are regularly in at-
tendance with some months
seeing close to 250 people in
attendance. Films showcased
at the TFR have also been

Painting the Town Red ... and Green ... and Blue...


Ybor City artist, musician and art promoter Blake Emory was recently com-
missioned by Jill Wax to paint a sign/mural on the exterior of her new shop,
Jezabelle and Her Wandering Gypsies; located at 1923 E. Seventh Avenue.
The horse and buggy depicts a gypsy caravan and the roosters symbolize
the building's history, as it once sold roosters and hens. Blake also recently
completed a mural at Mema's Alaskan Tacos, located at 1724 E. Eighth Ave.
in Ybor City. Along with his brother James, Blake Emory is founder of Cigar
Theater, a group of artists who hold eclectic art shows in Ybor City. Emory's
shows include both traditional art and performance art. Once located in the
historic Oliva Cigar Factory, the theater group has since been displaced due
to the construction of a hotel in the cigar factory. Cigar Theatre recently held
a show in the Ritz Theatre in Ybor City and will continue to hold shows in
various locations in Ybor City throughout the year. Jezabelle's offers vin-
tage items from the mid-188os to 198os buttons, novelty items, doilies,
crocheted table cloths, framed photos, jewelry, art and more. For more in-

Tampa artists. The Tampa Film
Review hopes such an event
can bridge the gap between
today's artists and those Tam-
pa artists who paved the way
for the successes of Tampa's
current crop of artists. All of
the filmmakers being honored
will be-present to accept the
award. Many of the artists for
whom the awards are named
will either be on hand to pres-
ent the award or have friends
or family present the award in
their stead.
Tampa Film Review is a
monthly showcase of local
independent films and is held
every second Friday of the
month and is free.
Visit www.thetampafilmre-
view.com for more.

atre (BAIT) performs every
third Friday of the month from
8 10 p.m. at the International
Bazaar, at 1600 E. Eighth
Ave. in the Centro Ybor Com-
plex. The next show will be on
Friday, January 18. At each
event, the audience helps to
create each unscripted scene
with suggestions of words and
physical actions, which then
becomes the launching pad for
further scenes.
