In this week's La Gaceta you'll
find a 28-page special section dedi-
cated to West Tampa.
Perhaps you haven't noticed,
but change is happening in Tam-
pa's Latin heart.
New offices and retail are going
up along the Howard-Armenia

corridor. Owners are renovating
historic buildings and new ten-
ants are moving in. The old cigar
factories are finding new life.
New housing some that looks
historic, others that would be in
harmony on Davis Islands or in
South Tampa, are going up in


empty lots in the West Tampa
neighborhoods. The growth has
not been as noticeable as Chan-
nelside or Ybor City but it is soon
to be as extensive.
West Tampa is being rebuilt
brick by brick, block by block, by
small but determined business-
men and women.
They are bringing in blue col-
lar businesses air conditioning,
marble and door companies. Pro-
fessionals like doctors, lawyers
and architects are investing. The
new housing is not empty half a
million dollar condos. It's afford-
able, energy efficient and sensible.
West Tampa is rising from its own
ashes to return to what it once was


- a working class neighborhood, a
mix of business and homes, a place
where you can live, work and play,
without leaving the district.
We hope our special section
helps inform you about the begin-
ning of West Tampa's renaissance.
Enjoy.

tambin, sobre el atropello a los derechos humans en la
propia China. Pero creemos que la experiencia de sabotear
juegos olmpicos no ha sido ni positive ni productive. Recor-

Actualidad de


Amrica Latina


Paraguay
El ex obispo catlico Fernando Lugo triunf en las
elecciones presidenciales de Paraguay, poniendo fin a seis
dcadas de rgimen unipartidista del Partido Colorado,
anunci el Tribunal Electoral paraguayo. El vicepresidente
del ente comicial, Juan Manuel Morales, inform que Lugo,
de la Alianza Patritica para el Cambio (APC), consigui
40,8% de los votos contra 30,8% de la candidate oficialista,
Blanca Ovelar, .escrutado 92% de las mesas, de un total
de 14.000, indic AFP. El ex general Lino Csar Oviedo,
del partido Unin Nacional de Ciudadanos ticos (Unace),
aparecia tercero con 22,0%. La eleccin, en una sola
vuelta, consagra al candidate con ms votos. La victoria de
Lugo, de 56 aos, fue histrica puesto que termin con la
hegemona de 61 aos de los "colorados" en el poder, que
adems fueron el sostn politico de la dictadura de tres
dcadas de Alfredo Stroessner. Esta fuerza gan todas las
elecciones tras su cada en 1989. Estas cifras confirmaron
la tendencia que daban las primeras encuestas a boca de
urna difundidas por los medios.

Cuba
Mujeres agents de la polica disolvieron a la fuerza un
plantn de una decena de Damas de Blanco, esposas de
press polticos cubanos, frente a la Plaza de la Revolucin
en La Habana, donde exigan la libertad de sus familiares,
constat un periodista de la AFP. Las Damas de Blanco
fueron llevadas a rastras a un mnibus, tras no acatar
pedidos de deponer la protest y retirarse del lugar que
le hicieron unos oficiales del Ministerio del Interior unos
minutes antes. "No estn detenidas; las vamos, a sacar de
aqu", dijo una de las agents consultadas por la.prensa,
mientras un centenar de partidarios del Gobierno coreaba:
"ipin pon fuera, abajo la gusanera!". Alrededor de las 9:00
locales (13H00 GMT) las mujeres fueron conminadas a
abandonar su actitud por los oficiales, al frente de los cuales
estaba, un coronel de apellido Samper, segn dijeron, pero
reiteraron su propsito de permanecer en el lugar.

Per
La comisin del Congreso peruano que investigar la
presunta injerencia del gobierno venezolano en los asuntos
internos de Per, a travs de las llamadas Casas del Alba,
sesionar en reserve, anunci su president, diputado
el conservador Wlter Menchola. Segn rese DPA,
la decision se tom porque los asuntos que se tratarn
"involucran informacin sobre la seguridad national" y
porque "los datos proporcionados por los invitados pueden
ser relevantes". El parlamentario aadi que el trabajo de
la comisin incluir citaciones con carcter obligatorio
a testigos y visits a las provincias en que funcionan las
Casas del Alba, despachos dirigidos por izquierdistas
peruanos cuyo nombre hace obvia referencia a la Alternativa
Bolivariana para las Amricas (ALBA). Menchola aclar que
no podrn citar con carcter obligatorio a los embajadores
de los pauses que forman el ALBA, Bolivia, Cuba, Nicaragua
y Venezuela, pues estn protegidos por sui condicin
diplomtica. Empero, no descart invitarlos para que
acudan voluntariamente. La comisin busca determinar
si son ciertas las denuncias de que las Casas del Alba
son instruments de desestabilizacin financiados por el
president Chvez.

Brasil.
El Gobierno de Brasil no tiene planes para elevar los
impuestos sobre las inversiones extranjeras de renta fija
para reducir el ingreso de dlares al pas, dijo el mircoles
el secretario adjunto del Tesoro Nacional, Paulo Valle. La
moneda brasilea, el real, se ha valorizado cerca de un 7,2
por ciento frente al dlar este ao, luego de ganar alrededor
de un 20 por ciento en el 2007, en moments en que fluyen
al pas los inversores extranjeros para aprovechar las altas
tasas de inters. "No hay ningn studio en el sentido de
crear un nuevo impuesto o de elevar el IOF (impuesto sobre
las operaciones financieras) para los extranjeros", dijo Valle
telefnicamente a Reuters tras participar en un seminario
en Londres, Recientemente, surgieron especulaciones
de que el Gobierno subira el IOF sobre las compras de
bonos locales por inversores extranjeros. La semana
pasada, el Banco Central elev en 50 puntos bsicos la
tasa preferencial de inters, Selic, a un 11,25 por ciento,
aumentando el atractivo del pas para los inversores.

Hillary Clinton comenz a descontar la ventaja que le lleva a Obama al derrotarlo
en las primarias de Pennsylvania con el 55 por ciento de los votos, frente al 45 de
su rival. Clinton se anot la victoria recabando especialmente los votos de obreros,
mujeres y adults blancos en una eleccin donde la economa fue la preocupacin
dominant. Cerca de 4.1 millones de electores demcratas estaban habilitados para
votar en Pennsylvania, donde 158 delegados estaban en juego. Segn la mayora de
analistas, Clinton deba vencer claramente en este estado para impulsar su carrera
hacia la Casa Blanca. Los sondeos publicados el lunes otorgaban a Clinton una venta-
ja de entire seis y diez puntos. Pero esta ventaja es considerada muy dbil como para
permitirle relanzar su campaa. Incluso una victoria con 10 puntos de ventaja para
Clinton no afectara demasiado el actual balance de delegados que encabeza Obama,
ya que los 158 delegados que otorga este estado para la convencin demcrata se
reparten en forma proporcional a los votos obtenidos.

Benedicto XVI en Estados Unidos


Por: Arturo R. Rivera
Siempre es motivo de la
atencin international cuan-
do el Papa visit a una nacin.
Esta ocasin no ha sido una
excepcin, ya que Benedicto
XVI ha dejado huella en los
Estados Unidos. La variedad
de temas que ha tocado el
Papa incluye, desde el respeto
a la vida, los derechos huma-
nos, hasta temas migratorios.
El Papa Benedicto XVI fue
recibido por el president
George W. Bush, hecho que
no es usual cuando se trata
del Papa. Posteriormente, a
su llegada a los Estados Uni-
dos, tanto el president Bush,,
como Benedicto XVI tuvieron
una conversacin privada en
la que hablaron de Latinoa-
mrica y en particular sobre
la inmigracin. Ambos con-
sideraron la problemtica de
inmigracin con referencia a
Latinoamrica y la necesidad
para una poltica coordinada,
especialmente su tratamiento
human y el bienestar de las
families de inmigrantes.
Los inmigrantes
Antes de llegar a los Esta-
dos Unidos, el Papa manifest
su preocupacin por la sepa-
racin de las families de inmi-
grantes. "Esto es realmente
peligroso para el tejido social,


moral y humano" seal el
Papa. Para el Santo Padre, la
solucin de la inmigracin es
tratar los problems econmi-
cos en los pauses de origen
que obligan a los emigrantes
a buscar .una nueva vida en
otro pas. El objetivo, segn
Benedicto XVI, debe ser "que
haya suficientes empleos y un
tejido social suficiente para
que nadie tenga que emigrar.
Todos debemos trabajar para
esto."
Uno de los principles
problems que consider la
comunidad latina es la rela-
tiva a la inmigracin, ya que
resident en los Estados Unidos
aproximadamente 4.5 mil-
lones de latinos. El pasado
ao fracas una iniciativa
del Congreso de una reform
migratoria, la cual era apoy-
ada por el president Bush y
los demcratas, pero tuvo la
oposicin de los republicans.
Dicha legislacin hubiera
regularizado la situacin de
doce millones de inmigrantes
ilegales, de los cuales once
millones son latinos. Grupos
de derechos pro-inmigrantes.
han pedido al Papa que inter-
cediese por ellos ante BushlN

mente, Bush y Benedicto XVI

Los abusos
Una de las sorpresas del
Papa en los Estados Unidos
fue cuando se reuni con al-
gunas victims del abuso sexual
por parte de sacerdotes y su
manifestacin de lo avergon-
zado que estaba por todo lo
sucedido. Fue un moment
muy delicado y el Papa lo en-
frent con un genuino inters,
humildad y comprensin.
El ltimo da de su visit co-
menz con una oracin en los
terrenos del ataque del 11 de
septiembre de 2001 ("Ground
Zero"). All tambin habl per-
sonalmente con familiares de
varias de las victimss" Luego
se dirigi al Estadio del equipo
de los "Yankees", donde lo es-
peraban alrededor de 60,000
personas. All celebr, una
misa donde se despidi de los
all presents. Creemos que
el Papa se lleva una imagen
muy positive de los Estados
Unidos. Se le vio genuina-
mente emocionado por las de-
mostraciones de afectos que le
brindaron durante su estada.
Sabemos que en el estadio vio

' Para completar el cuadro
de deterioro de la democracia
en Amrica Latina, hay que
decir que Bolivia, Ecuador y

"Si usted vota hoy en con-
tra de esta resolucin, se trata
de un voto que le est dando
a Hugo Chvez". Estas fueron
las palabras dadas por el prim-
er colombo-americano elegido
a la Cmara de Representantes
de la Florida, el Representante
Juan Zapata.
El 16 de abril de 2008, una
delegacin de colombo-ameri-
canos -representando various
sectors polticos, cvicos y
econmicos en el Estado de
la Florida fueron un ao ms
a Tallahassee. La diferencia
es que este ao, vimos como
realmente la influencia, de
pocos puede hacer una gran
diferencia para muchos.
Nuestra historic comienza en
la galera de la Cmara de
Representantes. El Repre-
sentante Juan Zapata sostiene
la resolucin HR 9151 para
que sea aprobada, endosando
el Tratado de Libre Comercio
con Colombia. Como colom-
biano americanos, que con
paciencia (o impaciencia) ex-
aminbamos en la cmara el
turno de votacin y ansiosa-
mente votaban verde (si) o rojo
(no). Esper un segundo, el
Representante Michael Scion-
ti de Tampa ha votado no? La
resolucin falla. Nosotros r-
pidamente desarrollamos una
estrategia de cabildeo y de ac-
cin. Un lder clave en la orga-
nizacin y ejecucin del plan
de cabildeo fue el lder comu-
nitario y abogado de negocios
de Tampa, Gilberto "Gil" Sn-
chez, de Snchez Law Offices,


PA.
El abogado Snchez res-
petuosamente le pide al Repre-
sentante Michael Scionti, que
salga un moment de la sala
de representantes y se rena.

general de la Cmara de

que tiene una alta poblacin

breve descripcin de los efec-
tos econmicos positivos que
tiene el acuerdo del Tratado
Libre de Comercio para su
distrito, Tampa y la Florida,
el Representante Scionti fcil-
mente est de acuerdo para
reunirse con el resto de la

Jos Olallo Valds: Primer Santo Cubano


Por Leonardo Venta

Fray. Orlando Barrios
Otero, Superior de la Comu-
nidad de los Hermanos de
San Juan de Dios de la Orden
Hospitalaria de la Clnica San
Rafael en el Distrito Federal
de Mxico, inform en recien-
te visit a Tampa sobre la de-
cisin del Vaticano de autori-
zar la beatificacin del Fraile
cubano Jos Olallo Valds de
dicha Orden..
Con motivos de la cel-
ebracin del centenario de la
muerte del Padre Olallo, en
marzo de 1989, un grupo de
laicos, junto al obispo de Ca-
magey, Monseor Adolfo Ro-
drguez Herrera, y hermanos
de la Orden Hospitalaria de
San Juan de Dios en Cuba,
manifestaron su deseo de ll-
evar a cabo el Proceso de
Canonizacin del Padre Olal-
lo; tambin ansiaban que se
volviera a establecer en esa
provincia una comunidad
juanina.
En marzo de 1990, se
abri el Proceso Cannico Di-
ocesano y, un ao despus, se
dio a conocer la Promulgacin
del Decreto de Aprobacin por
parte de la Congregacin para
la Causa de los Santos. Asi-
mismo, se abri nuevamente
en la ciudad de Camagey


el Hogar de Ancianos "Padre
Olallo", al cuidado de los her-
manos hospitalarios.
El papa Benedicto XVI au-
toriz recientemente la beati-
ficacin del religioso, segn
inform en un comunicado
Monseor Juan Rodrguez,
president de la Conferencia
de Obispos Catlicos de Cuba
(COCC).
Con la promulgacin del
decreto "se aprueba el mila-
gro atribuido" al Padre Olallo
y se inicia la organizacin de
la ceremonia de beatificacin
en la ciudad de Camagey.
ste ser el primer beato para
la Iglesia Catlica cubana, a
quien se le atribuye, segn la
Iglesia, "la curacin de la nia
Danielita Cabrera Ramos".
Olallo Valds naci el 12 de
febrero de 1820. Un mes ms
tarde fue depositado en la
Casa-Cuna de San Jos de La
Habana, donde el 15 de marzo
del mismo ao fue bautizado.
A los 15 aos de edad in-
gres en la Orden de San
Juan de Dios. Despus de
consumer los votos perpetu-
os, se traslad a Camaguey
(antiguo Puerto Prncipe) para
asistir a los afectados por el
clera morbo durante la epi-
demia de 1835, quedndose
despus como enfermero en el
hospital.


Durante 54 aos, con el
carisma de la piedad y la mi-
sericordia, atendi a pobres y
enfermos,. hasta el 7 de marzo
de 1889, fecha de su muerte,
un da antes del aniversario
del nacimiento de San Juan
de Dios, su Padre fundador.
En la ciudad de Camagey,
donde desarroll toda su obra
hospitalaria, ser elevado a
los altares a principios de
noviembre de este 2008. Una
de las histories que ms lo
vinculan con esta ciudad es
aquella que se refiere a cmo
rescat el cadver del General
Ignacio Agramonte y Loynaz.
Se narra que con su propio
pauelo limpi el rostro en-
sangrentado del hroe ante
la mirada estupefacta de los
militares espaoles.

As evoca Juan Torres Las-
queti, bienhechor del hospital
por ese tiempo, el espritu del
Siervo de Dios: "De carcter
bondadoso, dulce y afable por
naturaleza, y de verdadera vo-
cacin para el desempeo de
sus funciones hospitalarias,
vive exclusivamente dedicado
al cumplimiento de la fatigo-
sa tarea de enfermero mayor,
que no descuida ni de da ni
de noche, sin dejar por eso de
tender, curar y proporcionar
hilas y medicines a cuantos


enfermos pobres y necesitados
acudan a su celda en solicitud
de sus auxilios (...)".
Fray. Orlando Barrios
Otero, por su parte, afirma:
"Esta es una gran noticia para
los naturales de Cuba, ya que
muy pronto ser elevado a los
altares el primer Santo cu-
bano".
"Esto nos hace sentir

Noticias de Inmigracin
Director de Inmigracion de Catholic Charities
Por Jos Fernndez

Personas que entraron a los EE.UU. con un document
de entrada (1-94) bajo una visa C-1 no califica para ajustar
su status de resident permanent en los EE.UU.
Pregunta: Me llamo Cristal L. Soy originaria de los EE.UU.
pero mi esposo es de Honduras y entr a este pas hace ms
de diez aos. Hace various meses nos hemos casado y estoy
pensando solicitar su residencia permanent en los EE.UU.
pero no estoy muy segura si l califica para solicitar su resi-
'dencia permanent ya que entr a los EE.UU. con una visa
C- 1 de marino. Me podra decir si mi esposo puede solicitar
su residencia dentro de los EE.UU. y si no califica para este
process que otra alternative tendra el para obtener su resi-
dencia permanent?

Respuesta: Seora Cristal su esposo no califica para so-
licitar su residencia permanent dentro de los Estados Unidos
ya que entr a este pas con una visa de marino C-1. Oficial-
mente, inmigracin no ha admitido a su esposo a este pas. La
visa C-1 es una visa de trnsito que le da permiso entrar a la
persona por 29 das a los EE.UU. Para que su esposo pueda
obtener su residencia permanent tienen que hacer process
consular y tended que viajar al pas de origen para poder ser
admitido y aprobado para su residencia permanent.
Recuerde que si su esposo decide hacer el process con-
sular, necesita saber el riesgo que esta tomando al salir de
los EE.UU. no es garantizado cien por ciento que el consulado
americano le apruebe su visa de inmigrante (Estatus de Resi-
dencia Permanente) al salir del pas debe consultar con una
personas professional antes que decide salir a su entrevista.

La geografia della Sicilia
La forma dell'isola facil-
mente associabile a quella di
un triangolo, da cui l'antico
nome Trinacria (il nome di
origine greca e significa "dalle
3 punte"). I11 territorio siciliano,
a Nord, bagnato dal Mar Tir-
reno, a Sud, dal mare di Sicilia
e ad Est dallo tonio. Alle sue
estremit stanno, sullo stretto
di Messina, il capo Faro; a Sud-
Est il capo delle Correnti, ad
Ovest il capo Boeo o Lilibeo.
Fanno parte della region
vari arcipelaghi e isole: a Nord
Ustica e le isole Eolie o Lipari;
ad Ovest le Egadi; a Sud Pan-
telleria e le isole Pelagie, che
costituiscono la parte pi me-
ridionale dei territorio italiano;
ed ancora alcuni gruppi di isole
pi piccole come quelle dello
Stagnone di Marsala.
La catena montuosa setten-
trionale siciliana present.
caratteristiche identiche a
quelle dell'appennino cala-
brese e va considerate come

sua appenaice. 11 territorio e
per la maggior parte collinoso
(61,4% della superficie). I monti
al di sopra dei 500 m. sono il
24,5% e le pianure il 14,1%.
Fanno parte della catena mon-
tuosa settentrionale tre sezioni
distinte: i Peloritani, i Nebrodi
e le Madonie. I primi, molto
impervi, sono simili ai monti
calabresi, anche se meno alti
di questi (raggiungono il loro
massimo con i 1374 m della
"Montagna Grande"). Meno
ricche di vegetazione, ma pi
alte sono le Madonie che rag-
giungono, sul Pizzo Carbonara,
i 1975 m e il cui limited occiden-
tale tracciato dai fiumi Torto
e Platani. Il centro dell'isola
racchiuso fra i monti Sicani e gli
Erei. Poi, gli lblei che portano a
circa mille metri la punta sud-
orientale dell'isola e presentano
caratteristiche geologiche tutte
africane. Infine 1'Etna, vulcano
attivo fra i maggiori dei mondo
(3300 m).
Le principal pianure


American Heart
Association. '
FightUng Heart Dsease
and Stroke


deil'isola, in general molto
fertili, sono da Est a Ovest: la
Piana di Catania, solcata dai
fiumi Simeto, Dittaino e Gor-
nalunga; la Val di Noto; la Val
di Mazara; la Conca d'Oro.
I.principali fiumi sono il
Salso (km 144) e il Platani
(km 110)- entrambi sfocianti
nel mare di Sicilia. Impor-
tanti sono anche, ad oriented,
1' Alcantara (famoso per le sue
Gole) e il Simeto (da poco vi e
stata attivata una riserva na-
turale), ad occidente il Torto
e il Belice. Poco rilevanti i
laghi: fra quelli na-turali il
principal quello di Per-
gusa. Singolarissimi sono i
"laghetti" di Tindari.
II clima siciliano ha caratter-
istiche sensibilmente diverse a
second della parte dell'isola: a
Nord, lungo la costa, caratter-
izzato da estate calde e inverni
miti e quindi lo si pu definire di
tipo prettamente mediterraneo.
.Pi elevate sono le temperature
della costa meridionale e spesso
anche dell'interno, in cui molto
forti sono le escursioni termi-
che. Le precipitazioni sono rare
e aumentano specialmente col
crescere del rilievo. Sui monti,
oltre i 1600 metri, la never crea
un manto abbastanza persis-
tente, tale da permettere la
pratica di sport invernali. Fra
i venti, tipico lo scirocco,
caldo-umido e di provenienza
sahariana, che talora rende ir-
respirabile l'aria.
Per quanto riguarda flora,
una delle caratteristiche che
sembrano pi tipiche dell'isola
e che colpiscono il viaggia-
tore quando si allontana dalla
passeggiata sulla costa (spe-
cialmente in estate) l'aridit
e la scabrosit dei terreno. Fa-
mosi sono i boschi dei Nebrodi,
la Foresta Vecchia, la Serra
del Re, i boschi di Mistretta e
di Caronia. Nel territorio pal-
ermitano, vicino alla Rocca
Busambra, abbiamo il bosco
della Ficuzza in cui prosperano
le sughere e un tempo riserva
di caccia di Ferdinando di
Borbone.

HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY, FLORIDA

Part I
The end of a cataclysmic
event, such as the Second
World War, brought about
much confusion when it care
to settling accounts.
A war was bad enough,
but an occupation that lasts
almost five years presents
unsolvable dilemmas. Who col-
laborated with the Nazis? And
who didn't. Make no mistake,
the entire French nation pre-
sented a sullen front. A few, a
heroic few, went into the forest
and tok up arms. These were
called The Resistance. There
were many collaborationist,
few Resistance Fighters. -
In the ensuing call to many
accounts, collaborationists
slipped into the Resistance in
order to be on the winning side,
and be hailed .as Resistance
Hero's and rewarded. Better
that than be hauled before
war trials and be executed in
a public square.
Such a rat was Rene Lafont.
He was a scurrilous rodent
who lived in the Paris sewers.
He befriended the criminals
who wanted to live blow the
streets, hidden from sight.
Rene found a way to make a
safe sound living. He became a
police informant. In peace time
it was a safe business.
On the other side of the
fence was an exemplary French
Army Officer whose entire
career was marked with suc-
cess and rapid advancement..
He fought side by side with
Charles De Gaulle and was
in the only battle that French
tanks stopped Rommel's Pan-
zers. The war was lost in six-
weeks. He skipped into the for-
est and organized a Resistance
movement.of combat veteran
Legionaries.
Three years of constant war-
fare, marked by success after
success, brought the scrutiny
and attention of German High
Command. They made him
public enemy #1. Large re--
wards were offered, and harsh
measures administered to
small villages nmown to harbor
him, or help him with informa-
tion. NOTHING helped. He was
an enigma.
By 1944, with invasion loom-
ing for June, they launched an
all out investigation to unearth
Pierre-Luis. Little was known
of him. He operated in secrecy,
in the dark. Even in the pre-
war army, few knew of him. He
was the expert on espionage,
a marksman he was the top
assassin of the French Secret
Police. He never missed. He
served with the Foreign Le-
gion, again in an underground
capacity. He.was ruthless, but
efficient. "I carry out orders. It's
what I do."
Pierre-Luis, to battle test
Rene, took him on three raids.
He proved to Pierre-Luis what
he already knew. He was an ut-

Anywhere at Anytime


ter coward. He made a mental
note to put his best investiga-
tors on him, and if he made a
misstep, to shoot him imme-
diately, even if he was specifi-
cally forbidden to do so by his
commander.
Simple fact: they needed
Rene Lafont more than any
man in the Resistance, ex-
empting, of course Pierre-Luis. -
Still, thought Pierre-Luis, I will
shoot him.
At this delicate time in the
relation of Rene and Pierre-
Luis, a high priority order
came from London All High
Command.
The leading member of the
French Resistance, the Fox,
had been captured by the Ge-
stapo. They had placed a vigil
on his mistress's house, and
eventually, as all French men
will, he did visit his mistress.
The German commander had
waited one full month and, as
he predicted, the Frenchman
would cave in and join .his
mistress.
"What do you expect: he is
a Frenchman," the commander
said when decorated by the
Fuhrer.
The Resistance took action
as the battle for France was
being fought on the beaches
of Normandy. The battle was
entrusted to Pierre-Luis and
the High Command in London
sent him an intelligence type to
help solve his problems.
Paris was a maze of under-
ground tunnels. There were
no maps of this sewer system.
The English had ferreted out a
police informant who knew the
entire system by heart.
His name was Rene Lafont,
and Pierre-Luis took an instant
dislike to him. To begin he
was a coward. His appearance
was that of a drown rat. He
had rodent eyes, red rimmed
from years in the fumes of the
sewer system. NO AMOUNT
of bathing could scrape the
smell of the sewer from him. To
put a uniform ori him seemed
an insult to the uniform. He
cringed when he spoke and
was incapable of looking any-
one in the eye.
But, he had one thing no
one had, and the thing .that
was Vital to the cause of Ul-
timate Victory. He HAD The
Knowledge of the Sewers,
They placed the Fox in Ge-
stapo headquarters, a massive
fortress in the middle of Paris.
High Command had the opin-
ion that it was untraceable.
The other alternative slip
the assassin Pierre-Luis into
the fort and have him shoot


the Fox. Torture, of the high-
est order was scheduled to
start. No one, NOT even the
Fox, could withstand that. If
they couldn't recue him they
could shoot him. They put the
problem in Pierre-Luis' lap. He
said, "Give me a day. I will have
a solution." And, he did.
Much as he loathed to work
with the weasel Rene Lafont,
Pierre saw him as the key to
unlock the secret. They would
use Rene to lead them directly
under the fort. They would
come up under the wing of
the prison where the Fox was
being held.
Plan A: If surprise is total,
and overwhelming force by
the Resistance can overcome
the Gestapo, then we take Fox
alive and go out how we care
in. This plan depends on shaky
ground. How much do we know
of Rene? Can he lead us? Will
he betray us? We won't know
until we try.
Plan B: In the event of a cock
up, and we are in a fight with
SS troopers, we go directly to
Fox's cell, and shoot him. Then
get out if we can.
There was no time to lose.
Pierre-Luis gathered his twenty
best men, experts at this sort
of job. He went over the maps
with Rene. It wasn't very reas-
suring. Rene was vague. He
was NOT trained as a map
reader. All his knowledge was
in his head. If he were hurt or
killed, they would be lost in
the endless labyrinth that was
the Paris Sewer System. Still,
IT was the only shot they had.
Following the rodent like Rene,
the veteran warriors averted
their eyes and stepped gingerly
into the filth of the Paris Sewer
System.
They burst into the court-
yard, a few yards away from
the jail block that held Fox.
Close enough, thought Pierre-
Luis. But, where was Ree?
He didn't have time to find
an answer, as a waterfall of
schmeisser automatic gun-fire
filled the air. Pierre-Luis men
sought cover and fired back
at the parapets, but they were
no match. They were badly out
numbered and out gunned.
Pierre, searched for the en-
trance to the cell block. He took
five of his toughest troopers
and crashed into the cell block.
Placing plastic explosives in
every steel compartment door,
they worked up the stairs to
the top where the Fox lay,
shackled to an iron cot.
"You've come!" said the Fox,
joy in his voice.
"Yes and no." Pierre-Luis

unshackled him and stood him
up with great difficulty.
"Yes we've come, BUT, NO,
NOT to rescue you."
So saying, he took his ser-
vice pistol and fired between
the eyes of the Fox, who seemed
to understand. The men stood
at attention for a moment, sa-
luted and placed the body on
the iron cot.
The trip down the stairs was
more eventful than the trip up.
Nazi Storm troopers piled up
the stairs. Pierre-Luis's bunch
dropped grenades until they
gave out. The staircase was a
bloody mess. Pierre-Luis and
'one other managed to make it
to the court yard where their
EXIT hole was. He was close
when he heard the ripp of a
schmeisser. He fell as if tack-
led, both femurs broken. His
man fell, shot thru the head,
pinning Pierre-Luis to the
cobblestones.
"Don't Shoot Him. WE need
him." It .was a voice he recog-
nized. It was Rene Lafont.
Pierre-Luis shot up by the
SS was revived and treated by
the SS. They wanted him alive
and clearheaded. They had a
nice long torture regime to put
him through. He would die,
but the SS would guarantee
that there would NOT be one
fact that he couldn't cough up.
Nobody could.
But Pierre-Luis did. It was
his secret. He must survive.
Must escape. Must find the Rat
Rene Lafont and punish him,
ending his life in a blaze of pain
such as he had suffered. THIS
he was determined to do!
The German doctors were
amazed at his Resiliency. These
were not SS doctors, they had
a different agenda, they were
real doctors whose mission, as
they saw it, was to save lives.
To save Pierre-Luis.
They took Pierre-Luis as a
personal challenge. They must
save the hero of the Resistance.
It was their ticket to salvation
when liberation care, and any-
one in a German uniform was
a target to be shot and repaid
for their harshness in occupied
France. They tried hard as hell
to save the battered wreck that
was Pierre-Luis. He would be
saved! Barely alive, but ALIVEI
They succeeded and in time he
was freed and sent home to be
with his wife, Maria, and twins,
Amadeus and Christina.
It took the better part of five
years, but he recovered his
physical strength. It took lon-
ger to get his mental strength

back. He was a wreck. He
couldn't sleep nor eat properly.
He had massive nightmares.
The Dungeon Torture had
crippled him, but Marie didn't
give up. She cured his crippled
mind with LOVE.
Marie kept in his brain, the
thought of revenge. Someone
had to nail Lafont who had
risen in rank in the French
Gendamerie. He was the top
man in Paris. He was so feared,
he was virtually bullet proof.
No one had survived a mano-a-
mano with Lafont. No one had
except Pierre-Luis. He had.
Marie hid him out of view at
her father's country chateau.
She did not allow exposure to
the press. A shroud of silence
encircled him. Her children,
the twins, were given lessons
by private tutors. No one talked
to the kids about their father.
They were instructed NOT to
speak of him. As far as the
twiris were concerned Pierre-
Luis died in jail.
And so the years flew by,
Pierre-Luis growing stronger
and stronger, and Lafont more
and more powerful and safe in
his fortress headquarters at
the police station. Soon, La-
font forgot about Pierre-Luis,
and decided he was no longer
a threat. He was safe, cleared
by all postwar war criminal
boards, and now Chief of Police
of all France. He was untouch-
able!
The twins had grown up
according to plan. Straight as
ramrods, beautiful as movie
stars, and strangers to the
pages of Paris-Match. No pa-
parazzi dogged them at disco's.
They were just part of the
pretty people, the jet set play-
toys of .the movie set. Agents
tried to sign them, they dog-
gedly tumed their back. They
had a mission. First that is
to be completed, THEN they
would have time for the French
Postwar Movie wave. Truffant
would have to wait.
One cold rainy night, with
the shutters banging in a
brusque winter blast, Marie
brought them into the library
and sat them on the couch,
facing a blank movie screen.
There was a tray with their
favorite hot chocolate and
cookies.
Marie, looking serious, be-
gan her talk.
"Children, the years have
passed. The time has now ar-
rived for you to hear the truth

about your father and at the
end of tonight, you will hear of
your mission."
"Mission?" they giggled "As
in James Bond?"
"Get serious, Christina."
Marie snapped.
"Yeah, serious," sid Ame-
deus stifling a laugh. -
"During the war, your father
was a-great hero of the Resis-
tance. The Germans could NOT
catch him. All France was his
hiding place. The Germans
needed a rat inside the Resis-
tance to catch him. And there
were no rats in the Resistance.
Or so they thought."
"Pierre-Luis had many Lieu-
tenants to help him. Nearly
all were battled tested and
loyal. One remained a ques-
tion mark. An ex-policeman
Lafont knew his way around
the underworld. Pierre-Luis
needed him and his knowl-
edge of the underworld, but
never could quite trust him.
He had his doubts, but he was
too busy fighting Germans to
set traps for the slimy Lafont.
Finally, one night, London
called in an urgent request.
The Gestapo had caught the #2
man in the Resistance, a man
known as the Fox and held
him at Gestapo Headquarters
in Paris. Pierre-Luis received
his orders, break into Gestapo
Headquarters and bust the
Fox OUT. Failing that, KILL
the.Fox so that the Germans
do NOT catch him alive again
and torture the many Resis-
tance secrets out of him. It
was a tough order. Gestapo
headquarters was a veritable
fort, hard to assault. And it
was in the middle of Paris so
the entire Nazi Garrison of


Paris was available to trap the
Resistance fighters.
"The only way was to use
Rene Lafont and his under-
world knowledge of the Pa-
risien sewer systems to get into
the Fortress from underneath,
so that the Resistance would
come up into the fort and have
the Nazi's surround front and
back. Pick up the Fox, and
get back out down the sewers.
Tricky, but doable. Pierre-Luis
did not trust Lafont fully, but,
still, he had NO choice. What
more could he do? He had his
orders, get the Fox, one way
or another.
"Lafont, aware that every
day that went by he was nearer
and nearer to being discovered,
picked this operation to betray
Pierre-Luis and the Resistance.
He alerted the Gestapo chief,
who set a massive trap. As
soon as the Resistance would
come up from the sewers and
the Resistance outside would
frontally assault the front of
the fort, the Gestapo would
rise up, and slaughter the out
numbered, and outgunned
Resistance fighters. WITHOUT
the element of surprised on
their side, the Resistance could
NOT overcome the Gestapo.
"Pierre-Luis fought his way
to the Fox's cell and freed him,
but he had been so savagely
tortured that he could NOT
move, so, Pierre-Luis killed
him. Having accomplished his
mission, he tried to fight his
way out, but the Nazi's had
overwhelming force, and they
captured him after a savage
fight.
"Pierre-Luis was wounded
and it was TOUCH-AND-GO
as to WHETHER he would.live.
The Gestapo doctors were the
best. They saved him. They


were sure he would recover for
they had a full program of tor-
tures in store for him. The next
few months held a torture that
no man could stomach without
breaking. Pierre-Luis did. He
talked, but not all that the Nazi
needed to know. Finally a soft
hearted Gestapo General, an
admirer of the courage of the
patriotic Pierre-Luis, stopped
the torture right at the point
where he would die if carried
further. At THAT point the Ge-
stapo was packing up to evacu-
ate Paris before the rampaging
Allied tank columns, and they
turned the Gestapo Fortress to
the French Occupation Police.
The Chief? Col. Lafont. He had
a choice. Let everybody in the
Gestapo jail go home. Freed.
Or kill the one who could im-
plicate him. There was only one
who knew he was the Rat in the
Resistance.
"No one knew of his duplic-
ity in the capture of Pierre-
Luis, and the murder of the
Fox. Pierre-Luis lie in his bed
of filthy straw, a thoroughly
broken man. Doctors gave him
weeks to live. Resistance Police
who took over wrongly hailed
Lafont as the Mr. Inside Man
who had engineered the sur-
render of the Gestapo fort by
the Occupation Police to the
Resistance. Lafont was safe,
and a hero too.
"Lafont kept him hidden
deep in the dungeons hoping
that he would die of the many
wounds he had suffered at the
hands of the Gestapo. German
Army Doctors worked to revive
him. They saved him. But
Pierre-Luis was a very tough
man. He willed himself to live.
He had to live to get Lafont,
and reveal his treachery so
that he would get his postwar


justice. But, Lafont kept him so
well hidden that it looked as if
he would win, and Pierre-Luis
would die of his wounds.
"But the dungeons were
cleaned out and serviced by
company giris who took no
sides and knew nothing of
Resistance or Gestapo. They
were simpletons who did their
dirty work without paying too
much attention.
"Well, one girl, Lunette,
.had been brought up around


my father's country estate,
and she knew Pierre-Luis as a
young handsome man. Clean-
ing out his cell, she recognized
him. She tok very good care
of him, all the time whisper-
ing in his ear, 'Don't worry sir,
111 tell your wife. Shell have
the Resistance down here in
a minute. Youll live. Youll be
free again.'
"'God bless you.' He man-
aged to say.

Brian Griffin is considering a
run for Temple Terrace City Coun-

his wife April Griffin's successful
run for School Board.

State Representative Michael
Scionti has been asking the Flor-
ida Department of Transportation
(FDOT) to erect a West Tampa
Historic District sign on 1-275
near the Howard/Armenia exit.
The FDOT seemed to be agree-
able but is now singing a different
song. It says the sign is a no go.
The FDOT says there is a lack of
evidence that the historic district
is a traffic generator. What a snub
by the grand destroyer of history,
FDOT. Who are they to say West
Tampa's Latinos are not worthy of
notice by 1-275 motorists.
If the district isn't a traffic gen-
erator, it might be because FDOT
plunged 1-275 through the heart of
West Tampa, cutting the historic
district in half, dividing a com-
munity and putting the area in a
tailspin that helped cause block
after block to be blighted. The
damage still hasn't been rectified
and the new construction creates
further damage by paving over
block after block of quaint, qiet,
historic neighborhoods.
Heck, McDonalds, Burger King,
Texaco and Motel 6 are worthy of
signs on the interstate, but not
West -Tampa? The beaurocrat
who deems the Latin community
unworthy of notice of its history is
Don Skelton, secretary of FDOT
district 7. Write and let him know

Ed Dees attended a building
trades union conference in Wash-
ington, D.C. last week. Members
from Florida and Michigan, in-
cluding Mr. Dees, decided to use
some of their free time to protest in
front of Democratic headquarters,
asking for their vote to count.
Mr. Dees decided to .rest his
aching back in a chair in front
of the Democratic Club, which is
the wining and dining part of the
Democratic headquarters. Mr.
Dees has been a guest at both the
club and the headquarters where
the party entertained him to get
the support of his unin. Over the.
years, Mr. Dees has delivered lots
of dinero to the party.
Well, the chair and table he sat at
was part of several lining the side-
walk and weren't separated from
the walking traffic by any type of
barrier. Since o one was sitting out-
side, Mr. Dees saw no harm in tak-
ing a break from seeking to have
his vote count. To his surprise,
workers at the club immediately


came out to run him off.
The irony wasn't lost on Mr.
Dees. In all of his other visits to
the complex the staff showed him
great kindness and attention. Of
course, he came to give them mon-
ey and this time he came to get his
vote counted and they chased him
off. This kind of attitude is why we
don't really care for Howard Dean
and his cronies.

Come on down to Ybor City. The
parking is free, at least for two
hours, thanks to the mayor. This
week over 200 meters came off the
streets in Ybor City. This means
free parking, but more important-
ly it means fewer tickets to insult
our visitors. Parking still costs in
the flat lots and in the garages so
be careful. Ybbor's parking rules
can be quite eclectic.

by collecting 7,400 petitions to
qualify to run. for office. He faces
Joe Redner in the primary and
Brian Blair in the general election.

The County Commission has
gutted its Parks Department. It
can't afford to cut the grass where
our kids play. The City of Tampa is
trimming to the point where many
constituents will be underserved.
The state is considering cutting
the money that it pays to investi-
gate child abuse. All governments
seem to be in the throws of trying
to save all the money they can.
But one government agency seems
insulated from such belt tighten-
ing. That ne of course deals with
professional sports.
The Tampa Sports Authority
(TSA) has just used $2.2 million in
tax dollars to purchase and install
1,100 high definition LCD flat
screen televisions for Raymond
James Stadium. In the TSA's de-
fense, it is compelled by contract
to keep the stadium state-of-the-
art, but in this day of callous,
mean cuts to desperately needed
services, taking the taxpayers
credit cards to buy 46" televisions
seems at best inappropriate, espe-
cially when some of the televisions
are going into non-public places.
The ticket booth gets a 32" set as
does the usher's locker room, se-
curity office, security office locker
room, police command, traffic
control, lobby and, our favorite,
the housekeeping office. Of course,
the TSA board that approved it
gets a new 42" state-of-art set for
the boardroom.
Besides these sets, the taxpay-
ers are also buying 110 spare
televisions that will sit in a store
room, waiting to replace the first
set that breaks down. That's
$70,000 of taxpayer money for
televisions that might be used
seven years from now.
The TSA is just trying to do its
job of making RJS the best sta-
dium in America, but, come on, in
the world of $3.50 gas, rampant


- mo~ ~e o da


foreclosures and firing of govern-
ment workers, this expense is
hard to bear. It's not over yet. Next
year the TSA is going to spend
$400,000 more on televisions.
We bet County Commissioner
Jim Norman will have a tough time
explaining his vote to spend this
money when his election for State
Senate comes around in 2010.

Karen Perez, former candidate
for Florida House district 50, was
named 2008 Puerto Rican Woman
of the Year by the Puerto Rican
Cultural Parade of Florida for its
opening event and awards ceremo-
ny last night, Thursday, April 24.
The parade starts at 10:30 a.m. on
Sunday in Ybor City.

I am proud to be the honorary
chair of the Eighth Annual Cinco
de Mayo celebration to benefit the
Centre for Women. The event is on
Thursday, May 1 from 6- 9 p.m. at
laspar's Grotto in Ybor. The sug-
gested donation is $50, which pro-
vides food and spirits. The Centre
for Women provides desperately
needed help to over 3,500 women
and children a year.

The Guzzo brothers showing of
their Charlie Wall documentary
last Saturday was a huge success.
The sold out theater erupted in
applause as the movie's credits
rolled. The Guzzos did a masterful
job of combining interviews, reen-
actments, animation, original art,
historic news reels, existing art,
historic photos and front pages to
tell the story of Tampa's first no-
torious crime boss, Charlie Wall,
and helped lift the veil of the mys-
tery that surrounds his murder. If
you weren't lucky enough to be in
the audience, you'll have to wait
until the end of the year for the
movie to appear on DVD.

We are sad at the loss of our
friend Al Barnes who passed away
Tuesday from a heart attack. Mr.
Barnes served with us on the
Tampa Sports Authority for four
years. He was a trailblazer, being
the first black teacher at an all
white school and the first black
coach at an integrated high school.
He did his best for kids at Hills-
borough High, Plant, Jefferson,
Tampa Catholic, Blake, Middleton
and Riverhills. Al Barnes helped
change kids' lives. That is a great
legacy.

Local progressive leaders in
the green movement and historic
preservation are disappointed
in the City of Tampa. The group
conducted RENEW TAMPA, a
symposium that dealt with build-
ing green and historic preserva-
tion. The speakers represented
local experts in the subjects and
obviously the city's experts on its
efforts to go green, and its regula-
tors of historic preservation were
asked to speak. The city refused
to allow ifs employees to go. The
reason was that RENEW TAMPA
was being held in the old Berri-
man-Morgan Cigar Factory owned
by Nicholas Jammal. The city and
Jammal are in disagreement over
his preservation of the building
and the city was afraid if its em-
ployees spoke in the building on
the subject of city regulations that
it could hurt the city's position if
a future lawsuit is filed.
So, are city employees now
forbidden to go into buildings
with code violations or a history
of trouble with the city? Perhaps
they should notify the line of city
employees paying the cover at
Mons Venus.

The list of names being consid-
ered by governor to replace the
retiring Judge E.J. Salcines on
the Second District Court of Ap-
peal are Judge Anthony Black,
Diana Kay Bock, Judge Marva
Crenshaw, C. Thomas Davidson,
Judge Nelly N. Khouzam, and
Judge Richard Nielsen.

Christopher Griffin, Tampa
native and Jesuit graduate, was
recently named the executive
editor of the "Yale Law & Policy
Review." He is the first first first-year
student in the journal's history
to be named executive editor.
He is the son of Tampa attorney
Christopher Griffin and Marlene
Lazzara Sacarello.

Angelo Dundee, Muhammad
Ali's trainer, and Carmen Basilio,
former boxing champion, will be at
the Italian Club tonight, Friday,
at 6 p.m. for their happy hour, to
show a couple of films, and speak
to the crowd. As always, there is
no cover charge.

The Last Column:

Layoffs, Mother Earth and Love


This week is bittersweet
for me. Not only do I write my
last column for La Gaceta, but
also I witness a close-to-home
example of what one pundit
calls the "accelerating death
spiral" of the daily newspaper
in America.
Even as the New York Times
Company posted a $335,000
loss in the first quarter (news-
paper advertising fell by 10.6
percent), Media General an-
nounced a buyout program
that will shear employee num-
bers at Channel 8 and the
Tampa Tribune in half. As
one who witnessed Media
General's destruction of the old
afternoon Tampa Times in the
1980s, I expect the voluntary
buyout program to be a warm-
up for layoffs.
Can Tampa's daily newspa-
per and WFLA put out quality
products with half the staff?
I doubt it. Newsgathering is
labor intensive. But cutbacks


are the way of the future.
Most daily newspapers have
been out of touch for years
with readers' changing tastes.
Even as circulation of dailies
has declined, circulation of
weeklies such as La Gaceta
is strong and strengthening.
And the growth of online news
consumers is phenomenal.
Only people aged 65 and older
still turn to sources other than
the Internet as their primary
source of news.
When I graduated from the
University of South Florida in
the mid-1970s with a mass
communications degree, I be-
lieved I would enjoy a 20-year
run in newspaper journalism
before TV took over. Neither
professors nor students had
any inkling that Internet would
surface to stomp on both print
and TV.
I recently flirted with the
idea of returning to daily jour-
nalism. A great job came open -


opinion page editor of the Gan-
nett newspaper in Springfield,
Mo. But then that bugaboo the
budget crunch reared its head,
and the newspaper decided to
put off interviews until June.
In the meantime, West Virginia
University's medical complex
offered me the job of handling
news and media relations. I ac-
cepted the offer and will move
to the mountain college town of
Morgantown near Pittsburgh.
I am grateful to Angie and
Patrick Manteiga for giving me
this platform for the past two
years. I hope the next columnist
will continue to write about


, is$ues-i vai4e, especially .,te
environment. The Sierra Club
locally does a fabulous job
of keeping the natural world
front and center in the political
arena without much support
from the Times and Tribune.
As opinion polls show huge
majorities of people favoring
environmental protections, I
consider this a central area where
newspapers are out of touch.
But let me not end on a
gloomy note. Consider the
wonderful holiday right around
the corner. Global Love Day
is May 1 thanks to Tampa's
Harold W. Becker, president
and founder of the nonprofit
Love Foundation (www.the-
lovefoundation.com) with its
mission of inspiring people to
love unconditionally. The day
celebrates that all life is inter-
connected, and all share in the
bond of unconditional love. For
more inspiration about how to
reach higher truths of peace
and caring, check out the
foundation's new video pres-
ence at http://www.youtube.

Boxer Tony Licata, who
turned pro in 1969, did not
originally hail from Tampa.
The southern middleweight
champion from New Orleans,
however, found that his suc-
cess here made Tampa fel like
home sweet home.
Leading up to his April 26, -
1973, bout with Ernie Burns,
Licata posted an overall mark
of 16-0 in the city of Tampa,
with three of those wins com-
ing as an amateur. Pretty
impressive, but not nearly as
impressive as his overall career
numbers at the time: 30 wins,
zero losses,.and three draws.
Burns, whose career mark
at the time was just 14-7,
would have his hands full
against Licata in their bout
at the Fort Homer Hesterly
Armory. Although trained by
the legendary Angelo Dundee,
.Burns' record seemed to in-
dicate that he would serve. as
little more than a tune-up for
the undefeated Licata.
Licata, in fact, had his eyes
on a target much more formi-
dable than Burns: a title shot
at middleweight champion
Carlos Monzon of Argentina.
"I hope it is this year," Li-
cata said. Although his crack
at Monzon would not come
until June of 1975, Licata had
no intention of looking past
Bums, a converted -southpaw
from Miami who earned the
nickname The Upset Kid."
As fighters, Licata and
Bums could not have had less
in common. "Two Gun" Tony,
as he was known for his quick
combination use of left and
right punches, relied on speed
to compensate for his lack of
a power game. Bums, on the
other hand, came in with ten
knockout victories to his credit
and a reputation for being hard
to intimidate.
His manager, Lou Fleischer,
described Burns as a "fighter
who can go into a strange
and hostile ring, meet the op-
position and bring home the
bacon." He added that Burns
would not be intimidated by
Licata or the Armory setting
because "he (Burns) carries his
own referees his fists."
In 33 fights, Licata had
tasted the canvas only one
time. In a match in Tampa
against Santiago Rosa on June
8, 1970--- almost a full three


years earlier Licata took a
vicious right when expecting a
left, going down for a manda-
tory eight-count. Licata cap-
tured the bout on points and
learned a valuable lesson in
the process: never discount a
fighter's "lesser" hand.
Still, Licata entered the fight
knowing where Bufns could
hurt him the most. "I know his
hardest punch," Licata said,
"will be in his left hand."
His left, as it turned out,
was the hand Licata used
to the greatest effect in the
match. A judicious use ofjabs
and hooks with his left, while
keeping his right hand mostly
holstered, allowed him to reg-
ister enough points with the
judges to cruise to a comfort-
able decision.
The fight lacked any knock-
downs, although one of Licata's
rarely-used rights buckled
Burns' knees in the.tenth
round. Licata took his share
of shots from Burns during the
briskly moving affair, though
the punches seemed to have
little impact on the tough Li-
cata.
Still undefeated after 34
fights, Licata continued his run
of success with 18 more wins

to improve to 52-0-3. He lost
the first match of his career
on'points to Ramon Mendez
in Milan, Italy, but returned
the favor against Mendez
just one month later in New
Orleans.
This set the stage for his
long-awaited tilt against Carlos
Monzon at Madison Square
Garden for the WBA Middle-
weight title. Although he would
go down in defeat as result
of a TKO in the tenth round,
Licata's place in Tampa boxing
lore would remain secure.
After a decade-long career,
Licata retired in 1980 with an
overall mark of 61-7-4. His re-
cord in Tampa, however, was a
dominating 22-0. He may have
hailed from the Big Easy, but
Licata couldn't have felt more
at home in the ring anywhere
else.

beds, bathrooms and a profes-
sional kitchen ensured every
comfort the hunters needed.
Two maids provided breakfast
and dinners, made the beds
and cleaned the place while we
hunted. The best ingredients
of the "old" Tuten's Hunting
Club were the members and
guests. All were gentlemen who
followed the old Southern tra-
ditions of hunting. Some of us
who hunted Tuten's for many
years have said that no better
deer hunting place ever existed
in the U. S.
We also hunted private lands
in South Florida abundant
with turkey, hogs and deer.
The marvelous component of
hunting South Florida was that
we enjoyed the company of our
wives there. My wife took her
first turkey and wild hog there
and we harvested many trophy
quality deer.
Today, most of our friends
who still hunt do so in un-
equalled comfort. We sleep
and eat in fine hunting lodges
in private lands. The pleasure
of reliable comfortable vehicles
is a delight. Elevated shooting
houses in the forest provide
shelter form rain, cold and
insects.

complicated, though. We main-

feeders that supplement the
foods available in the forest
to wild animals. We must use
tractors, disks, plows and
other farm implements to sus-
tain our hunting at excellent
levels. There are trails to main-
tain, clear of the ever growing
bushes and trees. Stands and
feeders must be maintained
and repaired. In short, there
is always work to do in the
property.
However, because of the wild
game management practices,
our deer herds, turkey flocks
and wild hog populations are
healthy and sustained.
Hunting, like ourselves, has
changed dramatically since
we first took to the woods in
the early 1960s. For many of
us, age dictates certain limita-
tions that if considered wisely
we do not exceed. The desire
to harvest animals has taken
second place to the pleasure of
youngsters becoming involved,
learning the secrets of the for-
est and how to survive in the
wilderness. And, we take im-
mense delight in watching the
animals in the wild, coming
and going, undisturbed. Im-
mersing ourselves in the scents
of the damp earth and the
sounds of the forest, perhaps
we now.have a clearer vision of
our own evolution.
BE A GOOD SPORT!

Tampa Code Enforcement News
Mayor Pam lorio has named Jake Slater,
the current manager of the Business Tax
Division, as the new director of the Code
Enforcement Department. Slater will replace
Curtis Lane who announced his retirement
last vzeek.
At the same time, lorio will move the Busi-
ness Tax Division under Code Enforcement
and eliminate the Business Tax manager po-


sition. Eliminating the manager position and
the establishment of a lower salary range for
the Code Enforcement Director position will
save the City $142,000 per year.
Slater retired from the Police Depart-
ment in 2003 as captain and was-appointed
as manager of the Business Tax Division
in 2004. He modernized the division and
implemented improvements that resulted
in business tax revenues going from $9.4
million in 2004 to recently breaking the $11
million mark.
By merging Business Tax with Code En-
forcement, the City hopes to have greater
efficiencies by establishing a single point of
contact for the processing of commercial and
residential rental properties authorizing them
to do business and remain in compliance
with city codes.

WELT TAMPA IUENAISACE


by Paul Guzzo
It is the next great commu-
nity of Tampa.
-In a few short years it will
boast thousands of new jobs
and hundreds of millions of
dollars in new developments.
It is located in the center
of the city, just minutes from
downtown and Ybor City, yet
it has neighborhoods that
mirror the neighborhoods
of the Tampa of yesteryear
walking communities with
lush landscaping, homes and
retail markets that front the
sidewalks, and acres of green
public parks.
It has a rich tradition and
colorful heritage that its resi-
dents still celebrate on a daily
basis.
It currently offers affordable
waterfront property and will
soon offer South Tampa-like
high end housing, but at a
fraction of the price.
It's getting closer. The re-
birth of West Tampa is almost
upon us.
The redevelopment of West
Tampa is a natural step for the
City of Tampa. Tired of long
commutes and high gas prices,
more and more Americans are
looking to move to downtown
areas.
"If you look at the City of
Tampa as a doughnut, West
Tampa is the hole; it is the
center," said Ed Turanchik,
president of InTown Homes
and chairman of the West
Tampa Chamber of Commerce
Marketing Committee. "West
Tampa is the best dirt from a
developer's perspective in the
region. You are right between
Westshore and downtown. It
has 200,000jobs around it, 2.5
million square feet of retail just
minutes away at the West
Shore and Intemational malls,
and great colleges around it.
West Tampa is close to the
cultural attractions of Ybor
and downtown area. It has
all the convenience of South
Tampa at a fraction of the
price. It was only a matter of
time before West Tampa was
redeveloped."
Of course, Rome wasn't
built in a day.
Just a few years ago, a
bright new future for West
Tampa seemed as likely as
snow in Tampa.
In 2001 I was taken on a
tour of West Tampa by lo-
cal leaders who were touting
that the future of the "other"
Latin and historic district was
underway. Prior to the tour, I
walked West Tampa's old main
strip, the few blocks on How-
ard Avenue that intersect with
Main Street. That quick stroll
opened my eyes to the plight of
West Tampa and inspired me
to grab my reporter's notebook
and pen the following opening
to the article:
"The two teenagers quickly
make the exchange a large
bag of crack for an even larger
roll of cash. They finish the
transaction, shake hands and
head in separate directions,
agreeing to meet in the same
place next week, but this time
for a larger quantity.
"To most, a 'business deal'
such as this is nothing shock-
ing, as they occur in every city
across America. They have
become commonplace. But in
how many cities do these deals
take place in broad daylight in
a public park on Mairi Street?
Welcome to West Tampa, a
comer of Tampa that has been
forgotten by the leaders of our
community for many years,
but never forgotten by the
drug dealers and thieves of this
community."
Shortly after watching this
drug deal transpire, I met my
tour guides .and was given a
full tour of the West Tampa
community, during which
time they continually stated


*4** ~ 1t~c. e
JI 11 & ..J -~

~ji ~ e e *


Just a few years ago, West Tampa seemed to have a dark future with a high crime rate, crumbling
buildings and few new developments on the horizon. Today, new developments and landscaping are
popping up throughout the West Tampa community, turning a once blighted community into the next
great community of Tampa. On the left is a commercial plaza owned by Castillo Housing Corp., which is
the future home of Suncoast School Credit Union and an Allstate. On the right is Dario Diaz, P.A. Both
buildings are on Armenia Ave.

that though the community
had fallen on hard times a
new young crop of leaders
were ready to step up and save
this corner of Tampa that was
once one of the most vibrant
.communities in all of Florida,
flourishing in the cigar indus-
try in much th.e same way as
Ybor City had. The tour guides .
told me that the cigar factories
were being revitalized, the West
Tampa Chamber of Commerce
was growing, new businesses
were moving into the area, and
major developers were scouting
the community for locations.
I was told West Tampa would
one day become a thriving
residential community full of
young businesspeople who
work in downtown and want
to live in high end housing
and enjoy a short commute
to work.
Following this tour, excited *.
by what I learned, I once again = '
opened my reporter's notebook,
this time scribbling the closing
to my article on the revitaliza-
tion of West Tampa:'
'"Ybor City was not built in
a day, neither was Hyde Park
nor downtown. Each began
their revitalization much like
West Tampa is now with a
dream ... Once an investor
buys one house and cleans it
up, someone will buy the one
next door, then the one next Lexus & Toyota Certified
to it, until an entire block has
been rebuilt. Soon, the next I-CAR Trained Technicians
block will be bought up and a
business will see the improved Insurance Caims Honored Certified Uni-body Specialist
area and move in, and then it Foreign & Domestic Cars Interior & Exterior Detailing
begins ..."

From 2001 through 2004,
it seemed that West Tampa
was breaking ground on new
projects every week. The West
Tampa Community Develop-
ment Corporation (CDC) pur-
chased a plot of land on Pal-
metto Street in which to build
three low income yet beautifully
constructed homes as a model
of how West Tampa could be
rebuilt in a historic-looking
fashion. Jammal Engineering

purchased and restored West
Tampa cigar factories. Barbara
Baker, who restored a cigar
factory in West Tampa over two
decades ago, purchased and
restored the old Golden Nugget
Tavern, turning it into an an-
tique store. An overlay district
was approved, providing rules
and regulations to developers
on how they could construct
new homes and office buildings
so that West Tampa wouldn't
lose its historic look. Parks
were being refurbished and
built. The West Tampa Library
was restored and the restora-
tion of the West Tampa Centro
Espaol was announced, both
of which would anchor the
revitalization of the Howard
Avenue-Main Street cor-
ridor.
The story of West Tampa's
revitalization was regularly
being covered on the front
pages of Tampa's major publi-
cations, culminating with the
announcement in 2004 that
the West Tampa Fort Hesterly
Armory, the 78,000-square-
foot home to the Florida Na-


tional Guard, was looking for
a new tenant to occupy the
building and develop the land,
a development that would be
the cornerstone of the redevel-
opment of West Tampa. After a
bitter battle between potential
tenants, the Heritage Square
project was chosen by the
city to move into the armory.
West Tampa was the talk of
the town.
But, following the'Heritage
Square announcement, West
Tampa began to hit a few pot
holes on their road to redevel-
opment.
The West Tampa CDC built
the three homes on Palmetto
Avenue but never announced
a new housing project. West


Tampa was denied Community
Redevelopment Area (CRA) sta-
tus by the City of Tampa and
Hillsborough County, which
would have allowed West Tam-
pa to use a percentage of
property taxes to fund beau-
tification and infrastructure
improvements a major blow
for the continued growth of the
community. And, when no new
news was announced about
the armory project for a year
or so, rumors began to spread
that Heritage Square would
never get off the ground.
We live in a 30-minute sit-
com world in which we expect
a project to be announced,
started and completed all
within a short period of time,
just as they are in the televi-
sion shows we watch. So when
West Tampa's growth slowed to
an unsexy pace, many turned
their attention elsewhere. West
Tampa continued to move
further and further back in
the pages of every major pub-
lication in Tampa. The trendy
communities of Hyde Park,
Channelside and Ybor City
took back the front pages of
publications, as they have all


been going through their own
redevelopment. West Tampa
was again forgotten ... well,
forgotten by those outside of
the West Tampa community.
in the years following West
Tampa's fall from front page
headlines, a funny thing hap-
pened it continued to grow
and continued to move toward
its ultimate goal of becoming
a thriving community again.
There may not have been
anything sexy about commit-
tee meetings that approved
of developments, website de-
velopment, planting flowers
and trees, and discussions
about what sort of events West
Tampa should hold, but they
were necessary steps in the


redevelopment process.
But now, with MAJOR proj-
ects again being announced on
a regular basis in West Tampa,
West Tampa is ready for the
front pages again and ready
to once again stake its claim
as the next great community
of the City of Tampa. Exciting
times are on the horizon with
close, to half a billion dollars
in developments expected to
be completed over the next
five years. Heritage Square
will in fact happen. More cigar
factories have been restored or
are in the process of.being re-
stored. The arts community of
West Tampa is thriving again.
The Tampa Museum of Art has
made West Tampa its interim
home. And two major housing
projects InTown Homes and
West End Tampa are under
development and will bring up-
scale housing to West Tampa
at affordable rates, which will
entice young businesspeople to
relocate there. And, businesses
are relocating to West Tampa
on a regular basis.
"A critical mass has gath-
ered," said Turanchik. "We've
reached a tipping point. No,
we're beyond the tipping
point."
"This is a culmination of
many years of little by little,"
said Tampa City Councilman
Charlie Miranda, whose dis-
trict 6 includes West Tampa.
"Now we're ready for the explo-
sion at the end."
For West Tampa, the future
is now.
But, before we discuss West
Tampa's present and future,
let us dive into the past, and
look at how West Tampa got
to where it is today.

The History of West Tampa
Unknown by many, West
Tampa was once its own city,
the fifth largest city in all of
Florida, and mirrored Ybor
City in terms of demographics
of work and culture.
West Tampa was founded by
Scotsman Hugh C. Macfarlane
in the spring of 1892 and was


For decades, West Tampa has been treated
as the "step child" of the community. Despite
boasting similar roots as Ybor City in terms of
its cigar industry and latin heritage, it has long
been considered Tamnpa's "other" Latn aud his-
toric district.
For decades, West Tampa's redevelopment
efforts received little support and was allowed
to slip ftirther and further into blight.
And for decades, West Tampa sat silently by
and was ignored.
Well, no more. -
Today, West Tampa. is home to close to half
a billion dollars in new developments and is
home to some of Tampa's brightest and most

Today, West Tampa refuses to be that "other"

Today, Wesr Tampa is staking its claim as
"the" district.
In this special editionl of La Gaceta, we will
trace West Tampa roots back to its origins, re-
visit its demise, and discuss how West Tampa's
4lreams of revitalization are finally coming to
fruition.

officially incorporated as a
city in 1895. Macfarlane was
a prominent Tampa attorney
and real estate investor who
wanted to develop a new cigar
manufacturing community
west of the Hillsborough River.
Macfarlane purchased 200
acres of land, assembled a
group of other interested busi-
nessman, and the 200 acres
soon grew to 800 acres, which
became the City of West Tam-
pa. According to the Tampa
Bay History Center, its official
boundaries were Tampa Bay
Boulevard to the north; Gray
Street, Armenia and Cypress to
the south; Lincoln to the west;
and the Hillsborough River to
the east.
Macfarlane and his partners
quickly turned West Tampa
into a thriving community. A
streetcar route from downtown
Tampa to West Tampa was
created. Hundreds of cottages
were constructed for cigar


workers. Immigrants from
Cuba and Spain flocked to.
West Tampa for work, much as
they did in Ybor City, to work
in the two- and three-story
cigar factories popping up on
seemingly every comer in West
Tampa, factories owned by
such cigar companies as the
Morgan Cigar Company, the
Balbin Brothers Cigar Com-
pany and the Ellinger Cigar
Company. During its first 30
years of development, West
Tampa welcomed over two
dozen large cigar companies
and 50 small family-operated
cigar companies to its commu-
nity, employing the majority of
West Tampa in the hand rolled
cigar industry'.
In June 1899 a City Hall
and fire station was built on
the comer of Albany hd Main
streets. As they did in Ybor
City, the cigar workers and

WESr TAAMPA RENAISSANCE

immigrants built social clubs
in West Tampa. El Centro
Espaol was erected at 2306
North Howard Avenue and of-
ficially opened on January 11,
1912. That same year, West
Tampa boasted a population
of 10,000, making it the fifth
largest city in the State of
Florida. In 1913 West Tampa
became home to Hillsborough
County's first Carnegie Free
Public Library, located at 1718
North Howard Avenue. In 1916
Sicilians organized to build the
Sicilian Club (La Sicilia) on the
comer of Howard and Spruce
Street. As in Ybor City, these
social clubs provided its mem-
bers with cradle to grave social
services education, medical
clinics, dances, theatre, etc.
In the early 1900s, West
Tampa was a bustling city
full of factories, restaurants,
sports clubs, cafs and fam-
ily activities. But, winds of


change were blowing through
West Tampa by the 1920s and
in 1925 the City of Tampa an-
nexed West Tampa. Though it
was no longer its own city, it
continued to flourish for a few
years, but in the 1930s the
Great Depression brought nu-
merous hardships on the cigar
workers. Layoffs forced many
of the cigar workers to leave
West Tampa behind and de-
part to New York and Havana,
Cuba in search of work. As the
1930s became the 1940s, the
cigar rolling machine became
more prominent in the facto-
ries, forcing even more career
hand rolling cigar workers
out of work. Finally, in the
early 1960s, the construction
of 1-4 cut an east-west swath
through West Tampa between
Laurel and Green streets, cre-
ating an imposed barrier that
divided the neighborhoods and
completely wiped out others.
If not for a flourishing medi-
cal industry anchored by St.
Joseph's Hospital, St. Joseph's
Children's Hospital and St.
Joseph's Women's Hospital,
and the 1976 construction of
Tampa Stadium, best known
as "The Big Sombrero," there
was little driving outsiders to
West Tampa following the ar-
rival of the interstate.
West Tampa fell into de-


spair. Neighborhood after
neighborhood became blight-
ed. Crime moved in and busi-
nesses boarded up. The once
flourishing business districts
became warehouse districts
that were used simply for
storage. Walking traffic dried
up. Longtime West Tampa
residents relocated to South
Tampa. In time, West Tampa
was forgotten. In time, people
couldn't even tell you where
West Tampa was.

Where is West Tampa?
It may be the world's great-
est mystery. It is bigger than
the JFK scandal; more baf-
fling than the crop circle; and
as frustrating and puzzling as
solving the Rubik's Cube in
the dark with.one hand. As
Winston Churchill once said
of Russia, "It's a mystery! It's a
mystery wrapped in a riddle in-
side an enigma!" The question
- Where is West Tampa?
Sure, it sounds like a simple


enough question. Everyone
who grew up in Tampa seems
to know the answer and can
rattle the boundaries off the
top of their head in'an instant.
But talk to those you grew up
with, talk to those who, think
they are experts on West Tam-
pa, and you will discover what
I discovered No one seems
to know!
When the Interstate was
constructed through West
Tampa it completely destroyed
some areas of West Tampa and
created wedges through other
areas ofWest Tampa. Then, the
undocumented growth of the
area blurred the boundaries of
West Tampa forever.
- Some residents believe the
boundaries are Hillsborough
Avenue to the north, Tampa
Bay Boulevard to the south,
the Hillsborough River to the
east and Himes Avenue to the
west. Others I spoke to found
these boundaries to be ridicu-
lous. These boundaries would
exclude MacFarlane Park,
considered by many to be part
of West Tampa, and Oaklawn
Park, which is the home of
West Tampa Little League.
If the residents of Tampa
can't seem to agree, surely
our elected officials could give
a clear definition of the West
Tampa boundaries, right?


Wrong.
"It's the same question as
where is Ybor City. They shoot
someone on 56th Street and
Seventh Avenue and the pa-
pers say it happened in Ybor
City, but then Ybor business
owners say that 56th Street IS
NOT Ybor City," laughed Coun-
cilman Miranda when asked if
he knew where West Tampa is.
Much of his district is believed
to be West Tampa, so surely he
would know.
"To take a shot in the dark,
I'd say the boundaries are
Cypress to the south, MLK to
the north and Dale Mabry to
the Hillsborough River," said
Councilman Miranda. "But it's
a tough question because the
community is so fragmented
on the answer. When you talk
to West Tampa old timers,
they say Wellswood is West
Tampa, but when you ask
someone from Wellswood they
say they are Wellswood, not
West Tampa. Others say north
of Kennedy is West Tampa, but
then you have some people in
those neighborhoods who say
they are not West Tampa."
The City of Tampa lists
Oakford Park Neighborhood
Association, Plaza Terrace
Neighborhood Association,
Wellswood Civic Association,
North Hyde Park Neighbor-
hood Association and West
Riverfront Neighborhood As-
sociation as part of the West
Tampa/Drew Park District,
yet each of these associa-
tions say they do not consider
themselves to be part of West
Tampa.
Then you have the bound-
aries set by the West Tampa
Chamber of Commerce, the
organization that promotes
West Tampa. Their boundaries
of course differ from everyone's
and are Hillsborough Avenue to
the north, Kennedy Boulevard
to the south, the Hillsborough
River to the east and Himes
Avenue to the west.
West Tampa Historic District's
boundaries are the Hillsborough
River and Rome Avenue to the
east, MLK Boulevard to the
north, Kennedy Boulevard to
the south, and Dale Mabry
Highway to the west.
Finally, you have the
West Tampa Overlay District
boundaries in West Tampa
- Tampa Bay Boulevard on
the north, North A Street south
and North Boulevard on the
east and MacDill Avenue on
the west.
Confused yet? You should
be. It doesn't appear anyone
knows where West Tampa
is. Luckily for West Tampa,
the community leaders who
wanted to redevelop the West
Tampa area weren't confused
as to what needed to be done
to help revitalize the once flour-
ishing community. Someone
just needed to take a chance
and move their business to the
blighted community to prove to

other business owners that it
was safe.
The Pioneers
Members of the West Tampa
Chamber of Commerce point to
1988 as the turning point for
West Tampa, the year that Rick
Caldevilla moved his air con-
ditioning company, Caldeco,
to 1721 N. Howard Ave. the
neighborhood that is covered
by Main Street and that was
once considered West Tampa's
business district.
"I think people should con-
gratulate Rick Caldevilla. He is
one of the first ones to return
to West Tampa," said West
Tampa Chamber of Commerce
Executive Director Bob Garcia.
"He really is the one who got
the ball rolling."
Caldevilla readily admits
it wasn't an easy move. The
building was destroyed. Win-
dows were hidden under stuc-
co, there was a huge hole in the
roof from a fire, and the second
floor was home to dozens of
pigeons.
"It was in complete disar-
ray," said Caldevilla. "I basi-
cally built myself a small of-
fice in it to work out of while
I gutted the building and just
rebuilt everything that needed
to be rebuilt. It took a while,
but little by little we worked
on it and tumed it into a great


building."
By 1993 renovations were
complete. But the entire block
was in just as much disar-
ray as his building once was.
Drug dealers were on corners.
Squatters were living in empty
buildings. Trash blew down the
road like tumbleweed.
"It was really bad," said
Caldevilla. "When I was doing
my renovations my friends
would drive by and honk their
horns at me and tell me I was
crazy for putting my business
here."
So why did Caldevilla move
his air conditioning businesses
into one of Tampa's most
blighted neighborhoods at
a time in which no one was
talking about revitalizing West
Tampa?
"He was a pioneer," said
Mary Alvarez, former Tampa
City councilwoman whose
district included West Tampa.
"He saw the potential."
"I knew that in time the
Westshore district and down-
town would eventually have to
come together if the city was
to grow. West Tampa is the
community that brings them
together, so I knew that it was
only a matter of time before
West Tampa received the at-
tention it needed to be rebuilt,"

WEST TAMPA NAISSACE


Continued from page 5

said Caldevilla. "I always knew
it was going to be great again
and at the time the price was
right and I could afford to come
down and do what I did.
"Plus I had the right kind
of business that allowed me to
take a chance. At the time, I
just needed an office. Custom-
ers didn't come to me, I went to
the customers. So the custom-
ers didn't have to worry about
visiting my business in a bad
neighborhood."
Just a few blocks away
another West Tampa pioneer
was making her mark on the
community. One year after
Caldevilla purchased his build-
ing, Barbara Baker purchased
the Morgan Cigar Company
building, located at 2802 N.
Howard Ave. Her plan was
similar to Caldevilla's restore
the historic cigar factory and
move her marketing company,
Advanced Promotional Con-
cepts, into it.
She had an even more
daunting task before her than
Caldevilla did, as her build-
ing was tens of thousands of
square feet. Baker said when
she purchased the building she
could stand on the first floor at
night, look up and see the stars
through the rooftop three sto-
ries above. But, in just seven
months time, she restored the
building to its original gran-
deur and did so under historic
guidelines, saving as much of
the original building as she
could, including its original
hand crank elevator, which
still works today.
"When I first came to Tampa
I moved into an office in the
Andres Diaz Cigar factory,"
remembered Baker. "Prior to
Tampa I lived in Los Angeles
and had very sterile walls,
which was stifling my creativ-
ity. The historic building really
inspired me. I loved the open
brick and hanging pipes. It
was all done so eloquently. I
fell in love with it and jumped
at the opportunity to purchase
the Morgan Cigar Factory and
restore it."
Upon completion of the
restorations, she ran an ad in
the Tampa Tribune promoting
an open house. She said she
expected about 50 people to
show up. Over 350 came.
"A lot of them were crying
and hugging me because their
families once worked in the
building and it meant so much
to them to see a portion of their
history restored to a beautiful


state," said Baker. "It was a
very touching moment."
Unfortunately, Baker said
despite the outpouring of emo-
tions over her accomplish-
ment, others in the community
did not follow suit. The area
around her did not get pur-
chased by developers for rede-
velopment and over a decade
of stagnancy followed. Even
. the opening of the new $168.5
million Raymond James Sta-
dium in 1998 couldn't spur
economic development in West
Tampa.
Then, in 2003, the West
Tampa Chamber of Commerce
found a new executive director
Bob Garcia.

The Arrival of Bob Garcia
It didn't take long for the
West Tampa Chamber of Com-
merce to realize that the ap-
pointment of Bob Garcia as
their new executive director
would soon have the chamber
heading in the right direction.
Garcia stood in front of the
crowded West Tampa Chamber
of Commerce shortly after be-
ing named the new executive
director in 2003, asking for
volunteers to be part of the new
committees he was creating.
When few volunteers surfaced,
he began pointing to members
of the chamber, signing them
up for the committees before
they could say no. Within
moments of this occurrence,
hands went up around the
room and everyone began join-
ing the committees and, for the
first time in months, the West
Tampa Chamber of Commerce
was buzzing with excitement.
"I think right now the West
Tampa Chamber of Commerce
is in a transition phase," said
Garcia after that particular
meeting. "Tony Garcia did a
fantastic job as executive direc-
tor, but when he stepped down
there was a period of stagna-
tion and uncertainty among
many chamber members."
The legendary late-Tony
Garcia was a fabulous execu-
tive director who was beloved
by the community. As one of
the great entertainment pro-
moters in the history of Tampa,
he brought numerous events
to West Tampa until illness
forced him to step down. The
chamber decided that if West
Tampa was going to continue
to grow, it heeded a director
who would continue to bring
events to West Tampa, but
also one who could attract new
business leaders. They needed
a director full of energy, willing


to go door to door to bring in
new members. If new members
joined, they could be enticed to
help in the revitalization effort
in West Tampa.
"My role with the chamber
is that of a coach or coordina-
tor, indicative of pulling the
chamber members together,"
said Garcia in 2003. "What I
have noticed right away is that
we have great organizers and
leaders on this chamber, but
outside of these people there
are few other active members.
My job is to surround these
great leaders with role play-
ers who can help bring their
visions for West Tampa to
fruition. I want to-bring these
people in and motivate them to
support the leaders of the West
Tampa Chamber. If I can do
this, I see West Tampa having
a lot of future successes."
Upon becoming executive di-
rector, Garcia said he felt that
once membership increased
and the current chamber lead-
ers had more support, the
chamber could begin to work
towards their objectives im-
proving West Tampa's qual-
ity of life, helping businesses
prosper and grow, increasing
job opportunities, encouraging
expansion and development of
the community, and contribut-
ing to the overall economy and
stability.
Within months of taking
over as executive director of
the chamber, membership
increased substantially. The
monthly chamber luncheons
were sold out. People began to
take notice of the efforts of the
chamber leaders who wanted
to revitalize West Tampa. All
ofa sudden, West Tampa mat-
tered again.
"Bob Garcia's contributions
to West Tampa cannot be given
enough credit," said Mary Al-
varez. "He went door to door,
business to business, getting
people involved. He helped get
people excited again."
A modest Bob Garcia blush-
es when other West Tampa

leaders talk of his importance,
saying it is just a coincidence
that his first few years as
chamber executive director
were a time of high energy in
West Tampa in terms of devel-
opment. Maybe it was a coinci-
dence, or maybe it was due to
the excitement he brought. But
one thing is for sure, beginning
in 2003, West Tampa's redevel-
opment effort took off.

Baby Steps
In the beginning of 2003,
the Tampa-Hillsborough Coun-
ty Urban League prepared to
move into its new home the
Centro Espaol de West Tam-
pa. This was being hailed as a
major moment for West Tampa
for two reasons:
1. The Urban League would
provide the type of resources
to the West Tampa community
that would enable the residents
to better themselves, thus bet-
tering West Tampa in the long
run. The Urban League would
offer tutoring and mentoring
to the children of West Tampa,
provide technical training
classes to the adults, help low
income families procure and
maintain affordable housing,
and more.
2. The restored historic
building would become an for
the redevelopment of West
Tampa. With an architectural
jewel located at 2306 N. How-
ard Ave., just a short walk
from the West Tampa business
district where Rick Caldevilla
set up shop a decade earlier,
city officials believed other
businesses would be enticed
to build their new develop-
ment around it, hoping they
would see the restoration of
the historic social club as bet-
ter things to come for West
Tampa.
The total cost of the restora-
tion project was estimated at
$8 million. The building was
in total disarray it had water
damage, walls were crumbling,
and- vagrants had made it
home. But the announcement
of the Urban League moving
to Howard Avenue brought a
glimmer of hope to the sur-
rounding area.
Soon after the announce-
ment of the restoration of
the Centro Espaol, then-
Councilwoman Mary Alvarez
announced the streetlight
program. The City of Tampa


began replacing 50 70 watt
streetlights with 100 180 watt
streetlights in West Tampa
neighborhoods known for high
crime rates. Alvarez hoped
better lighting would deter
criminals from visiting those
neighborhoods. West Tampa
residents said the impact was,
immediate. Criminals stopped
frequenting the neighborhoods
with better lighting, and the
proud neighbors, no longer
living in fear, began fixing and
cleaning up their homes.
Historic renovations contin-
ued throughout West Tampa.
In early 2003 Rick Caldev-
illa purchased the old Eagle
Drug Store, which was located
next door to his air condition-
ing business. Caldevilla put
$350,000 into the restora-
tion of the 4,500-square-foot
building, which had been
abandoned for a few years.
Caldevilla merged the former
drug store building with his air
conditioning business building
by knocking down the wall that
joined the two on the interior.
More importantly, though, he
demonstrated his dedication
to restoring West Tampa to
its former glory years when,
upon discovering two historic
wall murals a U.S. Savings
Bond mural and a Cuesta Rey
mural he announced his
intention to hire an artist to
restore them.
In March 2003, the Church
of Scientology moved into the
Andres Dias Cigar Factory,
located at 3102 N. Habana
Ave., after completing a ma-
jor renovation project. The
church had to completely gut
the dilapidated building. They
added fixtures to show the
style and time period of the
building, built new entrances,
landscaped the surrounding
area, which prior to their pur-
chase was mud covered with
trash, and built new awnings.
The building is used to host
the church's many commu-
nity events, such as their drug
education campaign, Youth for
Human Rights Program and
Volunteer Ministers Program.
Improvements in the West
Tampa business district lo-
cated on the block of Howard
Avenue that is cornered by
Main Street also continued. In
May 2003, the Olympia Bak-
ery, located at 2201 N. Howard
Ave., renovated its storage
building, located at 2211 N.
Howard Ave., and turned it into


a catering show room.
Unfortunately, during that
same month, West Tampa's
redevelopment hit a major
bump when West Tampa lead-
ers learned that their commu-
nity would likely not receive
Community Redevelopment
Area (CRA) designation. A CRA
community has a portion of
its property taxes placed in
an account that is earmarked
for community improvement
projects such as rehabilitat-
ing or demolishing abandoned
buildings, repairing sidewalks,
beautifying community land-
scapes, and fixing up homes
of low income families. City
officials said West Tampa was
not likely to receive CRA status
because they did not believe
that the West Tampa commu-
nity had shown it possessed
the proper organizational com-
mitment or leadership drive
needed for the city to trust that
the CRA funds would be prop- .
early used. This was a wakeup
call for West Tampa. Despite
coming a long way in its res-
toration process, it still had an
even longer way to go.
West Tampa leaders refused
to allow this setback to stop
them from achieving their ulti-
mate goal. In August 2003, the
West Tampa Community De-
velopment Corporation (CDC)
announced its plans to build
three affordable homes for low
income families on an empty
95x100 lot located at 2117
W. Palmetto Ave. The homes
were designed to mimic the
historic casitas that once lined
the neighborhoods of West
Tampa. Designed by Sebastian
Architects, it was the first effort
in West Tampa to create new
housing that honored West
Tampa's past.
In October 2003, on Howard
Avenue in the West Tampa
business district, a $1.5 mil-
lion construction project at
the West Tampa Library was
completed. The historic West
Tampa library, which was
built in 1913, had its existing
structure restored and built a
new 5,000-square-foot wing
and new parking lot.
"This is a major step in the
rejuvenation of West Tampa,"
said a library official at the
time. "Little by little, the efforts
of the community to return
West Tampa to its glory days
are paying off."

Those little steps contin-
ued as 2004 rolled around. In
February 2004, Luis Doors,
located on the comer of Main
Street and Howard Avenue,
began restoring its building
under the West Tampa Fagade
Program. The city funded the
program through the Commu-
nity Development Block Grant
and designated $100,000 for
the program in 2004, $80,000
of which was to be used for
restoration work. Luis Doors'
facade restoration cost around
$40,000.
A month later, Jammal
Engineering purchased the
32,000-square-foot, 100-year-
old Berriman-Morgan Cigar
Factory, which had been aban-
doned for 33 years. In time, he
restored the historic building
and converted it into office
space.
In April 2004, the talk of the
town was the unveiling of the
West Tampa Overlay District.
An overlay district is created
to guide future development in
a particular area. It can also
be used to stabilize and con-
trol property values. The West
Tampa Overlay District was the
first to have extensive guide-
lines that affect commercial
and residential properties.
According to the West Tam-
pa Overlay District guidelines
approved by Tampa City Coun-
cil, commercial buildings must
have a principal facade and
entrance facing the street;


in the front of the building,
setting it even further back.
Under the new guidelines, a
retail store must be set right
on the property line. West
Tampa officials believe road-
side retail businesses will
encourage pedestrians to stop
in the stores, which chamber
officials hope would encourage
more retail stores to move to
West Tampa. Homes built on
the property line could create
a friendlier looking neighbor-
hood, which city officials hope
will attract families to move to
West Tampa.
The district boundaries are
between Tampa Bay Boulevard
to the north, North A Street to
the south, North Boulevard to
the east and MacDill Avenue
to the west.
"There were no goals or ob-
jectives in the neighborhood
prior to the overlay district,"
said," said Franklin Sebas-
tian, whose design of the CDC
homes was the model for how
homes in the overlay district
should be constructed. "There
wasn't much regard for the
historic fiber and the overlay
-district was a first step in get-
ting people to recognize his-
toric qualities."
In October 2004, major
news continued to emanate
from West Tampa when the
Florida National Guard and
the City of Tampa announced
that they were looking for
organizations or companies
interested in occupying the
78,000-square-foot Fort Hom-


Tampa became silent again.
In fact, in some regards, West
Tampa began to move back-
wards. In 2006, the Urban
League announced that it was
over $1 million in debt to the
bank, the City of Tampa and
Hillsborough County, forcing
them to abandon the Centro
Espaol. The West Tampa
CDC completed its model low
income homes on Palmetto
Avenue, but never announced
a follow up project. And with
no more announcements being
made in regard to the armory,
rumors began to spread that
the Heritage Square project
would never happen. Had
years of hard work gone for
naught? Was West Tampa
on the decline again? Some
thought yes, but the correct
answer was no.
The West Tampa commu-
nity continued to move in the
right direction. Itjust took time
to approve the major projects
on the horizon.
Heritage Square WILL BE
the anchor that West Tampa
has needed for so many years,
as it is not only still in develop-
ment, but has brought other
large scale developments to
West Tampa.

Heritage Square
'There has been a lot writ-
ten and said over the past few
years about West Tampa being
on the verge of redevelopment,"
said Thomas Marler, CEO
of Intellident Solutions, the
developer of Heritage Square.
"But what makes this so much
different than past efforts is it's
fundamentally a private effort.
We believe in order for this to
succeed it has to be initiated
by private enterprise, by com-
panies such as ours coming in
and recognizing that there is
a lot of value here and a lot of
things that can be provided to
the community here that would
not only revitalize the area
but would, from a business
aspect, be a very successful

ity. That will take 18 months to
two years. After they relocate,
Heritage Square can begin
construction and that will take
at least two years. So we are re-
alistically looking at 48 months
until it is complete."
When complete, it is be-
lieved the $150 million Heri-
tage Square development will
be the cornerstone of West
Tampa's restoration and the
foundation of the community
for years to come.
"Heritage Square will bring
a fundamentally new and dif-
ferent .styled destination to.
Tampa, one that makes the
best use of a historic site," said
Marler. "When it is complete,
Heritage Square will represent
a multi-use facility combin-
ing the best of hospitality, the
best of a market place .that
will provide ample space for
a farmer's market and other
entrepreneurs, and providing
a unique environment for an
artists' community."
The actual armory build-
ing will be converted into a
10,000-square-foot open-air
European farmers market that
will feature locally grown or-
ganic produce in the building's
indoor courtyard. The first floor
will also feature 43,000 square
feet of retail space designated
for unique Tampa offerings
including ethnic restaurants,
cafs, boutiques and specialty
retailers. The second floor will
feature 15,000 square feet-of
affordable artist studios and
10,000 square feet of commer-


will draw more artists to West
Tampa, which will have a very
valuable affect on the sur-
rounding area."
On the property surrounding
the armory building, Heritage
Square will construct Hotel
Sevilla, a 300-room Spanish-
themed luxury boutique hotel
named for West Tampa's first
hotel. The hotel will feature
Spa Sevilla, a state-of-the-art
fitness center, holistic center
and European day spa serv-
ing the hotel guests and area
residents.
The 1940s-era red brick
building located just north of
the Armory on Howard Avenue
will be converted into the West
Tampa Cultural Arts Center.
The structure will be restored
and house a caf, history mu-
seum and an art gallery that
will showcase local artists'
works.
Two parking structures, one
named for West Tampa's first
mayor, Fernando Figueredo,
and the other named for the
family that owned and oper-
ated West Tampa's first cigar
factory, del Pino, will provide
ample parking for all of Heri-
tage Square's customers.
The remaining property will
be converted into the George N.
Benjamin Park, named for one
of West Tampa's founders.
According to Intellident So-
lutions, the financial impact
of this project will be astound-
ing. They predict it will have a
$250 million annual economic
impact on West Tampa over


$76 million through continued
operations that will bring over
2,000 jobs to the area and over
$172 million through its tenIant
operations equal to the eco-
nomic impact the Super Bowl
has on host cities. They also
predict it will have a one-time
$194 million construction and
development impact on Tampa,
employing over 2,300 workers
who will earn approximately
$82.8 million in labor.
Heritage Square is just
one of two major redevelop-
ment projects currently being
spearheaded by Intellident
Solutions, the other being the
restoration of the 104-year-old
Tampa Cuba Cigar Factory;
located at 1202 N. Howard
Ave. Intellident, a dental tech-
nology company, purchased
the 32,400 square-foot, three-
story plus basement cigar fac-
tory for $1.5 million in January
2005. When restorations are
complete, Marler said the fac-
tory will look much as it did
in 1915. The cigar factory's
historic brick, windows and
shutters will all be carefully
restored. The non-historical
green awnings that adorned
the building for so many years
will be torn down, as will all
non-historic 20th century ad-
ditions that detract from the
facade's historic integrity. The
factory's interior will showcase
an open floor plan, much like
the original interior. The origi-
nal crank elevator shaft will be
restored, as will the building's
original hardwood floors. The
artistic emblems and names of
former cigar company tenants
that are fading away on the
building's exterior walls will be
saved and touched up.
Intellident hopes to relocate
from its current office located
in Rocky Point to the cigar fac-
tory in 12 18 months.
"When we were looking for a
new office, West Tampa seemed
like the perfect fit," said Marler.
"We're moving into more than
a building, we're moving into
a building with a rich history
surrounded by a community
full of history and culture. It

seemed like such an exciting
opportunity. We believe in
West Tampa and believe it is a
community full of potential."
Of course, much of that
potential relies on Intellident's
Heritage Square development
succeeding. Lauren Key, In-
tellident's vice president of
marketing, said what makes
this project so special to West
Tampa is that while it is going
to have an enormous economic
impact on the community,
it will do so by honoring the
tradition of the West Tampa
community.
"Heritage Square will be
nothing like Channelside or
Centro Ybor," said Key, reiter-
ating that it will flourish not off
chain stores and restaurants,


but family owned specialty
stores and artist studios lo-
cated in the armory building.
"We prefer to compare it to
other public markets across
the country, such as Pike
Street Market in Seattle or the
Ferry Market in San Francisco.
These markets reflect the his-
tory of the communities they
are in, rather than trying to
create a new type of commu-
nity."
If Marler and Key are true
to their word, Heritage Square
does seem to be the perfect

WEST TAMPA RENAISSANCE

,public markets on the street
and specialty shops. One needs
only to visit West Tampa's most
famous block to understand
West Tampa's culture Boliche
Boulevard.

Boliche Boulevard
Remember when Cuban
sandwiches used real pork, not
processed meat? Remember
when caf con leche was made
in front of you by pouring the
milk into your cup? Remember
when crackers, not only Cuban
bread, were served with your
caf con leche? Remember
when you knew the name
of every business owner on
the block and they knew the
names of all their customers?
For many of you, it may be
hard to remember when such
things occurred. But, ifyou live
in West Tampa, it's probably
easier to remember, because
you could have experienced
these events yesterday.
Welcome to a section of Co-
lumbus Drive between Himes
and Armenia avenues that time
thankfully forgot. This section
of West Tampa has been nick-
named "Boliche Boulevard"
because of its many traditional
Latin establishments. Boliche
is,. of course, a classic Latin
meal.
While the rest of Tampa
seems content to allow corpo-
rate cookie-cutter establish-
ments to line their community's
streets, Boliche Boulevard has
stayed true to West Tampa's
Latin roots.
You'll rarely hear rap mu-
sic or techno music blaring
from the cars cruising down
Boliche Boulevard. Instead,
you hear Latin music. Grocery
stores, still called bodegas, sell
mostly Latin American prod-
ucts,'such as Tampico, Goya,
Vigo, Pamplona, Columbiana,
Conchica.
It seems as though everyone
in West Tampa is a regular at
one of the coffeeshops on or
around Boliche Boulevard,
where they converge every
morning and drown out the
sounds of the coffee machines
and food preparation with their
screaming yet good hearted ar-
guments on politics and world
affairs. In these coffeeshops,
having a strong voice is as
important as having a strong
argument.
On weekends, the sidewalks
are adorned with street ven-
dors selling produce, enchila-
das, arts and crafts, and more,
creating the type of outdoor
market still found in Latin
American countries.
"This is the model for how
we want West Tampa to be,"
said Leo Alvarez, a West Tampa
banker and head of economic
and business development for
the West Tampa Chamber of
Commerce. "We don't want to
become Ybor City. We want
businesses in West Tampa to
reflect the West Tampa cul-
ture, which is why the major
developments going up in West

Tampa will lease space to small
mom and pop retailers, not
major chains. Boliche Boule-
vard is the model for how all
of West Tampa should be a
small town community located
minutes from downtown."
Every retailer on Boliche
Boulevard is indeed a "mom
and pop" establishment that
refuses to modernize its ways
of doing business. Instead they
all rely on the old time ways,
which is what makes each es-
tablishment so special.
La Oriental Bakery bakes
crackers fresh every moming
for its customers to dip in its
caf con leche, bakes all its
own pastries, and actually
slices fresh pork, real pork, not
cold cuts, when preparing its
Cuban sandwiches.
La Teresita Restaurant,
perhaps the most famous res-
taurant on Boliche Boulevard,
practices the same employ-
ment methods today as it did
when it first opened in 1972.
You start as a dish washer
and work your way up the
ladder. La Teresita also allows
street vendors to set up shop
in their parking lot seven days
a week, and if someone who
is homeless or hungry knocks
on the door, they never leave
hungry.

attended business school. He
learned the old fashioned way,
by working at another jewelry
store, La Ultramar in Ybor City,
before branching out on his
own. Today, his children, Eddy
and Jennifer, run the store.
Arco-Iris Restaurant also
serves Cuban sandwiches the
"old fashioned" way, with pork
cut from a bone. The owners
pay homage to their Cuban
heritage and their new home of
Tampa with two wall murals of


Cuba and one of the University
of Tampa.
Irma Willcut, an immigrant
from Colombia who came to
Tampa 33 years ago, said
she has run heroptical store,
Irma's Optical, in West Tampa
for 20 years because she finds
the Latin culture to be more
exciting.
"Spanish women will buy
for style and will look at every
frame I have and then choose
the fist one they looked at," she


laughed. "It can drive me nuts,
but it makes the day more ex-
citing too."
Perhaps the most unique
store on Boliche Boulevard is
the Computer Junkyard, which
specializes in computer repairs
and used computer sales, but
also designates half the store
to selling guayaberas.
"It keeps things interest-
ing," said Peter Iglesias, store

owner. "A lot of people in West
Tampa wears guayaberas, so
it keeps people walking in and
out of my store all day to look
at them. I feel like I add to the
flavor of West Tampa by sell-
ing guayaberas and not just
computers."
The granddaddy of all op-
erations on Boliche Boulevard
is the Gonzalez Habano Cigar
Company owned by Wallace
Reyes, who is best known for
owning the world record for
the longest hand rolled cigar.
He rolled a 101-foot cigar at
the Cigar Heritage Festival in
2006.
His family's cigar company's
roots date back to 1911 when
it was founded in Puerto Rico
under the name Puerto Rico
Tobacco Marketing Company.
In 1918 his great uncle came to
Tampa for a tobacco marketing
convention, saw great potential
in West Tampa and moved
the company's operations into
West Tampa's Morgan Cigar
Company in 1922. Over the
years, the company endured
management changes, brought
in partners and lost partners,
and changed names a few
times before it stuck with
Gonzalez Habano Cigar Com-
pany, a name it chose in the
mid-20th century. The now 53-
year-old Reyes began rolling
cigars at the age of 12. When
the cigar industry fell apart
in West Tampa, the company
moved from the cigar factory
into their current storefront lo-
cation, 3304 W. Columbus Dr.,
and Reyes has run it since his
father passed away in 1994,
never once considering ceasing
operations or finding a new lihe
of work.
"West Tampa is a commu-
nity deep with tradition," said
Reyes. "And cigar rolling is one
of Tampa's greatest traditions.
I am proud to continue to roll
cigars. It is more than a job. It
is also an art form."

Here Come the Artists
The cigar factories may no
longer employ those men and
womn who perfected the art of
rolling a cigar, but the Santael-
la Cigar Factory on Armenia
Avenue is still home to artists.
In September 2007, the owners
of the. cigar factory, the Ellis
family and Van Pelt family, of-
ficially opened the second and
third floor of th cigar factory
as the West Tampa Cultural
Arts'Center, which will serve as
a location for monthly curated
art shows that draw well over
1,000 visitors. The second and
third floor will also serve as a
home for b0 artists who rent
studio space.
"We love having the art-
ists here," said Bubba Ellis,
co-owner of the factory and
an office furniture retailer.
"They've been priced out of

Wallace Reyes keeps the art of cigar rolling alive in West Tampa at the Gonzalez Habano Cigar Com-
pany while Maida Millan works hard to turn West Tampa into the arts capital of the city by promoting
curated shows at the West Tampa Cultural Arts Center, located in the Santaella Cigar Factory.


every other section of Tampa,
which is a shame. Artists do
so much positive stuff for a
community."
"We hope- that the arts cen-
ter can provide something
positive for West Tampa for a
long time in terms of offering
cultural events and bringing
more and more people to West
Tampa to see the work of the
resident artists, come to the
shows, and come to the art
classes we will soon offer," said
Maida Millan, the director of
the arts center as well as a tal-
ented photographer who rents
studio space at the center.
Bubba Ellis, his brother Ja-
mie and his sister Jennie Van
Pelt purchased the 50,000-
square-foot, three-story plus
basement cigar factory in
1997. They had outgrown the
space they were renting for
their furniture business on the
corner of Rome Avenue and
Gray Street, and purchased
the cigar factory with the idea
of occupying the first floor and
renting the second and third
floor as office space.
One of their first tenants
was a woodworker who spe-
cialized in restoring furniture
and building guitars. To help
cover his rent, he subletted a
portion of his space to an art-
ist. A friend of the artist saw


the space, fell in love with the
factory, and leased his own
space from the Ellises and the
Van Pelts.
"Then another moved in,
and another, and another,"
said Bubba Ellis. "So we decid-
ed tojust go for it and advertise
it as artist space for rent."
As the artists moved in,
they took it upon themselves
to renovate the second and
third floors, constructing walls
to create private artist studios.
Each artist then designed their
own studio, building it to suit
their particular artistic needs.
"Most of the studios have
their own unique flavor," said
Millan, who has been renting
studio space for seven years.
"I happen to be a fine art
photographer, so my studio is
designed for that. For instance,
I have my own dark room.
"There is a certain energy
here," she continued. "It has a
certain flavor. It is full of real
artists being very serious about
their work and doing what they
are supposed to be doing with
their lives."
Studio space is rented for
as low as $286 a month for
a smaller studio and around
$400 for a larger studio. The
low rent is a kind gesture by
the Ellis and Van Pelt families,
but is not enough to support

the facility. So in March 2007,
the Ellises and Van Pelts ap-
proached Millan about the idea
of converting the second and
third floor into a full fledged
non-profit art center. Millan
has experience as an arts
center director, most recently
as program director for Art-
ists Unlimited on Channelside
Drive and as an arts director
at a charter school.
"A month later we started
working towards the vision,"
said Millan. "And in September
2007 we had our first show
that drew over 1,000 people.
It was amazing."
Millan chooses a curator for
each art show and the curator
in turn chooses a theme and
artists to participate in the
show. The artists' works are
hung in the second and third
floor hallways. Artists who rent
studio space open their doors
and those in attendance can


visit the resident artists.
Visitors are asked for a do-
nation at the door, as well as
for donations for the food and
alcohol served. With the dona-
tions, the artists' rent, and the
grants the arts center can now
receive as part of its nonprofit
status, Millan is confident the
West Tampa Cultural Arts Cen-
ter will remain an important
part of West Tampa for years
to come. In the near future,
she hopes to begin offering art
classes to at-risk students in
the community and is always
encouraging the resident art-
ists to earn extra money by
holding their own art classes
in their studios.
"We have established our-
selves as a serious arts entity
in West Tampa," said Millan.
"I think the programs the
center is offering and still plans

to offer will be great for the
West Tampa community," said
Ellis, who also stated that the
artists shouldn't worry about
his family "pricing the artists
out."
Nor is Ellis worried that Her-
itage Square's arts center will
hurt the West Tampa Cultural
Arts Center's attendance.
"The more there is going on
in West Tampa the better," said
Ellis. "Hopefully more people
will come to the art shows we
both hold and realize how great
West Tampa is."

Tampa Museum of Art
Of course, the West Tampa
Cultural Arts Center is not the
only home to the arts in West
Tampa. West Tampa is also the
temporary home to the Tampa
Museum of Art, which officially
opened in its new West Tampa
location on March 7.
After the Urban League
abandoned the Centro Espaol
de West Tampa, a situation
similar to that of the armory

the Centro Espaol, they need-
ed to spend only $150,000 to
ready the building for their
arrival.
Despite all the money spent
on restoring the Centro Espa-
ol over the past few years,
its beautiful theatre is still in
disrepair and not suitable for
use. Museum officials have
stated that they hope to spear-
head a fundraising campaign

occurred in which numerous
organizations were express-
ing their desire to occupy
the historic building. In the
end, with the City of Tampa,
needing a temporary location
for the art museum until the
new museum in downtown is
complete in approximately 18
months, settled the debate by
giving the 20,000-square-foot
building to the museum.
The Centro Espaol is half
the size of the former Tampa
Museum of Art in downtown,
which was recently demol-
ished, and much of the build-
ing is used as office space for
the museum, leaving 1,600
square feet available for gal-
lery space. Due to the tight
confines, the museum's per-
manent Green and Roman
antiquities collection is on loan
to the Daytona Mseum of Arts
and Sciences
Museum officials said, be-
cause of the restorations the
Urban League performed on


to restore the theatre. The
necessary funds will doubtfully
be raised in time to restore
the theatre while the museum
still occupies the building, but
museum officials have stated
it is not about restoring it for
their use, but rather restoring
it so they can leave something
behind for the residents of
West Tampa to enjoy. When
the museum vacates the Cen-
tro Espaol in 18 months, the
building will become a com-
munity center.
The greatest gift the Tampa
Museum of Art has given to the
West Tampa community has
been exposure. The museum
has averaged 50 visitors a day
since it moved to the Centro
Espaol. Its open house on
March 15 welcomed over 1,000
visitors. And its monthly Art
After Dark events regularly
receive hundreds of visitors.
"A lot of people went to the
open house who hadn't been
to West Tampa in a long time,"


Page 14 Section B/LA GACETA/Friday, April 25, 2008


said Bob Garcia, executive
director of the West Tampa
Chamber of Commerce. "Hope-
fully they all left impressed
with.the direction of West
Tampa and will continue to
come back to our community
on a regular basis."

Living on the Water
Just a few blocks from the
Arts Center and the Museum
of Art, is one of West Tampa's
greatest works of art the
water.
It's a poetic image Rolando
Pozo standing on the edge of
the Hillsborough River, the
sun radiating off the water, the
undeveloped property on the
other side of the river boast-
ing nothing but a convent, the
open land providing a pictur-
esque backdrop, and the beau-
tiful Tampa skyline looming
miles away in the distance.
"How can you find a better
place to live than this?" asked
Pozo, whose house is located
barely 100 yards from the river.
"West Tampa has a great cul-
ture, history and restaurants,
but this is what really makes
it so special the water. I told
a buddy of mine that if you
take everything you love about
Ybor City and everything you
love about South Tampa, add
affordable waterfront property,
and put it in the middle of

Despite all the new developments in West Tam-
pa, traditional eateries such as the West Tam-
pa Sandwich Shop (top) will always remain, as
will the peace and tranquility of West Tampa's
waterfront where Roland Pozo lives (bottom).
Much of West Tampa is devoid of fast food chain
restaurants. It's a place where mom and pop es-
tablishments still rule.

town, you have West Tampa."
Pozo purchased his home
five years ago for only $86,000.
Today, homes on the water in
West Tampa can still be pur-
chased for under $150,000.
Pozo said these prices allow
him to afford a boat and live
the suburban lifestyle while
located only minutes from
downtown.
"Where else are you going
to find waterfront property in
a warm climate for that price?"
asked Pozo. "Honestly, I doubt
you can find it anywhere else
in the country."
He is not afraid of the devel-
opment craze in West Tampa
destroying his neighborhood.
There is no room for new shop-
ping centers in his.quiet neigh-
borhood and he trusts West
Tampa's leadership when they
say they want to keep West
Tampa's heritage alive through
small mom and pop shops and
not major retail center, so he
is secure he will continue to be
allowed to enjoy the quiet life
he currently enjoys. Actually,
he is excited about the pend-
ing rush of new residents upon
West Tampa.
"This is the best community
in Tampa Bay," he proclaimed.
"I'd be selfish to want it all to
myself. I can't wait for everyone
to learn.how great it is."
Of course, if everyone learns
how great West Tampa is and
decide to move there, they will
need places to live. West Tam-
pa will soon be able to provide
hundreds of new homes for
new residents. Thanks to the
overlay district passed a few
years ago, these homes will
add to West Tampa's current
cultural flavor.

InTown Homes
There is perhaps no better
cheerleader for West Tampa's
redevelopment than Ed Tur-
anchik. He is chairman of
the West Tampa Chamber of
Commerce's marketing com-
mittee and is president of the
InTown Homes development,
but what makes Turanchik
such a great cheerleader for
West Tampa is his enthusiasm.
His enthusiasm doesn't seem
to be stemmed by his desire to
sell his homes to make money.
He honestly seems to believe
in the future of downtown
housing and sees West Tampa
as the city's most viable com-
munity in which to offer such
housing.






Ou-erlay District



represents,
w aid Turandcik



"I'm a strong environmen-
talist, as is Teresa [Caddick],"
said Turanchik, Caddick being
his InTown Homes partner.
"We believe we need to think
globally and act locally. Living
in; the city is more fuel efficient.
Plus, by building up cities, we
don't need to continue to tear
up swamps and pasture land.
West Tampa has the land and
is just minutes from down-
town, so why not build homes
here rather than tearing up
more land? We're achieving
14 units per acre here in West
Tampa, as compared to six to
10 in other areas of the city,
but because of the design it
seems roomier in West Tampa
than the other areas."
InTown Homes is in the


process of building over 100
new homes in the West Tam-
pa community with selling
prices ranging from $180,000
- $249,000, the majority of
which will be located in the
area north of the interstate
surrounding N. Howard and
Armeina avenues, neighbor-
hoods that fall within the West
Tampa Overlay District. In all,
the InTown Homes develop-
ment is bringing over $30 mil-
lion in new homes to the West
Tampa community.
"We chose to build in the
Overlay District because we
believe in what it represents,"
said Turanchik. "The guide-
lines are helping us to rebuild
West Tampa as it once was a
walking district with people
sitting on their giant front
porches talking to their neigh-
bors."
The homes are designed by
Franklin Sebastian, who de-
signed the West Tampa CDC's
homes on Palmetto Avenue
that became the model for the
Overlay District. Upon a future
resident choosing his or her
plot of land, InTown will then
construct a new home that
captures the architectural tra-
dition of Tampa's casitas and
shotguns homes of yesteryear,
while incorporating all the


modern amenities of today.
InTown also offers MoMed
(Modern Mediterranean)
homes, homes Turanchik
boasts as being Tampa's most
energy efficient homes. MoMed
homes reduce monthly electric
use by 44 percent by featuring
an active solar water heating
system, and a variety of green
products and designs. Each
MoMed home will also be de-
signed to fit in with the historic
fabric of the West Tampa Over-
lay District.
"When you go down the
street, unless you know what
you are looking for, you can't
tell whether our homes are
rehabbed historic homes or
brand new," said Turanchik.
InTown Homes is doing
more than rehabbing West
Tampa structurally, they are
also rehabbing its resident-
base. West Tampa has been
known primarily for its low
income housing and rental
neighborhoods for many years.
InTown Homes is now offering
aesthetically pleasing homes
for purchase in neighborhoods
close to downtown. Turanchik
said that for years West Tampa
had an income base of $15,000
per household. With the re-
development of West Tampa
underway, more people are

West Tampa, all of which are designed in historic
fashion to fit into the Overlay District.


moving to West Tampa with
an average income base of
$40,000 $90,000.
"By 2001, the heart of West
Tampa had lost 40 percent of
its population," said Turanchik.
"In the area we are developing,
there are 188 residential lots
and 40 percent were vacant,
30 percent were homeowners
and 30 percent were renters.
When you have a neighborhood
with 30 percent homeowners,
it's not a neighborhood. It's
dysfunctional."
Since the InTown models
opened in March 2006, they
have built 35 new homes, some
of which have been purchased


by families who had been living
in such high end communities
as Davis Island and Hyde Park,
despite West Tampa's longtime
reputation for its blighted
neighborhoods. While afford-
able housing still exists in West
Tampa for lower income fami-
lies, higher end housing is now
drawing the more affluent
"It's a domino affect," said
Turanchik. "I think people
always knew West Tampa was
a great place to live, they were
just waiting for other people to
take the first step. People had
to have a comfort level. They

had to know that they weren't
the lone woodsman going into
the wilderness."
InTown Homes is not the
lone woodsman in terms of
housing redevelopment. Just
a short distance away a $250
million housing development
project West End Tampa is
underway.
West End Tampa
When West End Tampa is
complete in three to five years,
eight city blocks between Cy-
press Avenue to the north,
North A Boulevard to the south,
Oregon Avenue to the east and
Rome Avenue to the west, will
be completely transformed into
a livable, walkable, high end
community.
The area of West Tampa
where West End Tampa will
be located was full of old aban-
doned warehouses when the
developer, Morin Development,
began planning this massive
housing project a few years
ago. Today, the warehouses
that once were homes to drug
dealers and vagrants are gone
and will soon be home to one
million square feet of residen-
tial and commercial space,
which will include 550 apart-
ments, 79 townhomes, 340
condominiums and 25,000
square feet dedicated to local
retailers, restaurants and of-
fice space. Condominiums will
sell from $250,000 $450,000
and apartment rent will begin


West End Tampa will bring 550 apartments, 79
townhomes, 340 condominiums and 25,ooo
square feet dedicated to local retailers, restau-
rants and office space to West Tampa.


at $190 a square foot per year.
Morin Development will not
lease the retail spade to giant
corporate entities. They want
retailers to be local local
cafs, local hairdressers, local
clothing designers, local dry
cleaners, local restaurants,
and so on.
Because the development
is located within the West
Tampa Overlay District, West
End Tampa will be built as
though it is a development
from the early 1900s, with
the long front porches that sit
just a few feet from the street,
creatirig a walking district
that is neighbor friendly with
residents talking to each other
from their porches or as they
walk the streets, rather than
hiding inside their homes.
"We want to create the cool-
est neighborhood in all of


Tampa," said Kenneth Morin,
managing partner of Morin
Development. "We want to set
the standard for anyone who
comes behind us. They are
going to have to match our
standards."
To create such an environ-
ment, Morin Development
realizes it will take more than
quality housing. They must
also create a landscape that
the residents will love.
"This will not be another
Channelside," said Morin.
"Channelside is as close to
urban living as the city offers,
but it is very cold and stark
with small sidewalks and no
landscaping. It is totally unin-
viting and not warm and not
appealing. Then you will come
to West End and see something
very inviting. We will have

Castillo Housing and others are building new
housing in West Tampa located outside of the
Overlay District, modernizing the neighbor-
hoods and improving the housing stock.

wide sidewalks with porches
coming up to the sidewalks.
We will have over 7,000 plants
and trees and shrubs. We are
giving people a community in
which they can put their child
in a stroller and push them
down the street. Could we have
created a higher density and
make more money? Yes. Would
we rather scale it back a little
bit and have a beautiful com-
munity? Yes. In the end, that
is what will set us apart from
other areas of Tampa."
Morin said he decided to
develop in West Tampa after
the city announced it was ac-
cepting bids on the armory.
Morin was interested in de-
veloping the armory property
into housing similar to West
End Tampa. Though his proj-
ect wasn't chosen, during the
bidding process he fell in love
with the idea of redeveloping
West Tampa. While touring
the community he found the
eight city blocks filled with
warehouses just three blocks
from the armory and believed.
that it was the right location
for his development.
"West Tampa is the perfect
location for development," said
Morin, echoing the thoughts
of everyone who is helping to
redevelop West Tampa. Its cen-
tral location in the city makes
it ideal for city living.
4 "It's close to the city, you've
got the interstate right next
to you, you've got access to
mass transit, and it's adja-
cent to South Tampa, UT and
downtown," continued Morin.
"In time, I-think many more
housing developments will
be'needed because more and
-'. more people will want to move
to West Tampa."
It is this belief that has
turned both Morin and Turan-
chik into more than just land
developers, but city leaders,
as both developments are go-
ing the extra mile to ensure
that West Tampa is prepared
for the influx of residents and
developments they believe are
on the horizon.
Beautifying West Tampa
Turanchik knows he has to
do much more than provide
quality housing if West Tampa
is going to experience contin-
ued growth. West Tampa as a
whole needs to improve. The
best way for a once-blighted
community to reach the Prom-
ised Land is through CRA
designation, which Ybor City
and Channelside both used
optimally over the past decade
to reach their current states of
fruition.
*Unfortunately, West Tampa
may never receive CRA desig-
nation. Years ago West Tampa
leaders learned they'd be de-
nied because of lack of organi-
zation. Today, even with a bevy
of strong leaders, West Tampa
would find it difficult to be-
come a CRA district because so
many communities in Tampa
have been granted the designa-
tion over the past few years. If
too many districts are allowed
to use property tax money for
infrastructure projects, then
the city and county will not
have enough money coming to
them through property taxes to
fund their projects, thus not
every community that needs to
become a CRA district can.
So, Turanchik is creating
his own private not-for-profit
CRA the Old West Tampa
Improvement Fund, which
will be funded by dues paid in
by West Tampa homeowners.
The fund will then be used to
improve public realms in West
Tampa. At first, members will
be InTown Home homeowners,
but he believes when other

neighborhoods see that the
money is being used to support
positive neighborhood projects,
they will be enticed ,to join as
will businesses throughout
West Tampa.
To ensure that the low in-
come residents of the redevel-
oped communities who love
West Tampa and care for their
homes but can't afford to re-
store their hornes to fit the new
upscale attitude of West Tampa
are not displaced, Turanchik is
helping them to restore their
homes. He helps them apply
for city grant money that is ear-
marked for improving houses
in historic communities such.
as West Tampa.
Turanchik also hopes to
spearhead a program that will
allow residents and businesses
to adopt blighted comers lo-
cated throughout West Tampa.
In exchange for funding new
landscaping on the corners,
the residents and businesses
will hav a sign placed on the
comer stating that they ad-
opted the comer, similar to the
Adopt A Highway Program.
"We have a long term view,"
said Turanchik. "Sooner or
later we'll be gone. Developers
come and go. The question
is, what legacy did you leave
behind?"
The legacy that Morin and
West End Tampa will leave
behind will be that of a better
infrastructure. He is building
all of his development's utilities
underground, installing under-


ground water vaults to prevent
street flooding, resurfacing the
streets in the West End Tampa
community, building parks
that will be accessible to the
public, installing new street
lights, and building new mass
transit stations.
"We don't want West Tamp
t be just another community,"
said Morin. "We want it to be
THE community."
Morin and Turanchik aren't
the only ones who feel this way.
Hordes of men and women are
all stepping to the forefront,
willing to work hard to ensure
that.West Tampa becomes the
flourishing community they
believe it can be.
The Future ofWest Tampa
"I was born in West Tampa.
I was raised in West Tampa,"
said Mary Alvarez. "My daugh-
ter still lives in West Tampa.
My mother lived in West Tampa
until she was 99. So I am very
protective of my heritage. I only
want the best for West Tampa
and I think what we have right
now is the best collection of
leaders in West Tampa that
we've had in a long time."
Those leaders are all part
of the West Tampa Chamber
of Commerce Mary Alvarez,
Bob Garcia, Ed Turanchik,
Leo Alvarez, Rick Caldevilla,
Rolando Pozo, Jason Busto,
Desiree Valdes, and a host of
others. Following a recent West
Tampa Chamber of Commerce
meeting, rather than racing
back to their jobs, they stuck
around and discussed what


else needed to be done in West
Tampa if it is to continue to
move in a positive direction.
Turanchik pointed to park-
ing as a major issue.
"These old historic business
streets all have the same issue,
they developed a community
based around the perspective
that people either walked ev-
erywhere or took the streetcar,"
he said. "So they didn't build
the streets to fit parking lots.
In this day and age, if you
don't have parking you can't
redevelop."
Turanchik said he doesn't
want to see parking garages
popping up all over West Tam-
pa, nor does he want to see
scattered surface lots like the
ones downtown Tampa has.
Instead, he'd like to see new
developments build interior
parking spaces and old devel-
opments build parking lots be-
hind their structures, so they
don't destroy the aesthetics of
West Tampa.
Leo Alvarez wants to see
medians throughout West
Tampa receive new landscap-
ing. He spearheaded that effort
on Boliche Boulevard a few
years ago, convincing the City
of Tampa to use money from
the. Mayor's Beautification
Program to fund it.
"FDOT will be doing a lot
of the same things in West
Tampa as they did in Ybor City
when they built the interstate
system through West Tampa,"
said Leo Alvarez. "They will

hind a building.

build some brick facades along
Howard and Armenia, which
will really help beautify the
area. But we will still need
more. A lot of the medians in
the West Tampa community
need new landscaping."
Leo Alvarez said this land-
scaping is an important part
of the process of tuming West
Tampa into a walking commu-
nity. With Armenia and Howard
avenues boasting four lanes a
piece blazing through the heart
of West Tampa, unlike in Hyde
Park where. each is just two
lanes, traffic can move pretty
fast. Leo Alvarez believes that
when you create a beautiful
district through landscaping,
people will naturally slow down
as their eyes take in the beauty
around them.
Chamber Executive Direc-
tor Bob Garcia would like to
see more public transportation
options in West Tampa. He said
the rubber tired trolleys that
take people from downtown to
Hype Park should extend their
routes into West Tampa, and
the electric streetcar should
one day extend its tracks to
West Tampa.
The majority of.the West
Tampa Chamber of Commerce
leaders want to see historic sig-
nage placed throughout West
Tampa so visitors know that it
is a historic district.
"We have become the 'other'
historic district," said Mary
Alvarez. "For so long we have
been the historic stepchild. We
have as much history in West
Tampa as Ybor City, yet we are
often ignored."

To ensure that West Tampa
receives the attention it de-
serves in terms of the many
events it offers, Rolando Pozo,
owner of Rolando & Associates

developer, created a new in-
teractive website www.west-
tampachamber.com that not
only lists all the chamber's
members, but also everything
going on in West Tampa in the

has also created "Que Pasa," a

all events that will be occurring
in West Tampa in the coming
months. The poster can be

seen hanging in retail windows,
throughout West Tampa.
Both Garcia and Desiree
Valdes, former aide to former
Councilman Mary Alvarez, re-
ceive kudos from every member
of the West Tampa Chamber
of Commerce for their dedica-
tion to finding new members.
Both are willing to go door-to-
door, asking businesses to join
and explaining the benefits to
them.
"There are great new busi-
nesses moving to West Tampa
on a regular basis now," said
Garcia. "They realize what a
great community this is. We
need to explain to them if this
community is to continue to get
better, we need their help."
Over the past few years, a
number of quality new busi-
nesses have indeed opened in
West Tampa.
Jessica Raia-Long and Tina
Hurless opened NoHo Bistro in
West Tampa four years ago, be-
lieving that West Tampa was a
growing community. They have
not been disappointed, and
have since expanded their busi-
ness because of the increasing
amount of people visiting West
Tampa. Originally NoHo Bistro
was a catering business and
their location was a home office.
Today, they also open on select
days for brunch.
When Henry and Raul Cas-
tillo were lobking for a location
for their restaurant, he said
West Tampa was the obvious
choice.
"I serve Cuban food. Real
Cuban food, not processed
food," said Henry Castillo,
who opened Castillo's Caf five
months ago. "The residents of
West Tampa respect what we
make. This food is part of their
heritage."
Mary Lee's House, a child
advocacy and protection cen-
ter, has built a new facility
on Armenia Avenue, a facility
that cost over $4 million to
construct.
Dario Diaz spent $560,000
out of his own pocket to con-
struct a new 3,000-square-foot
building for his law firm in West
Tampa.
"It's great to be in West
Tampa," he said. "I love the

community feel."
"I think that's what people
are realizing makes West Tam-
pa so special," said Turanchik.
"West Tampa is a very positive
community and a very positive
place to grow. We are on the
right path. We have the right
developments, the right guide-
lines and the right leaders all
in place. In a few years, this
is going to be a beautiful com-
munity. In a few years, I think
West Tampa will be everything
we believe it will be."
It's mind boggling to try to
imagine what West Tampa will
look like in a few years. But
within a few mile radius, just
across Kennedy Boulevard,
a strip of Tampa most people
only drive through while leav-
ing Hyde Park and heading to
the Interstate, an old commu-
nity will be become new again.
Heritage Square will bring tens
of thousands of visitors and
hundreds of millions of dol-
lars to West Tampa. Boliche
Boulevard will continue to
thrive and remain unim-
paired by the millions of dol-
lars being spent in West Tampa.
The West Tampa Cultural Arts
Center will ensure that West
Tampa keeps a strong arts
scene. The Tampa Museum of
Art will hopefully help to com-


... while traditions such as the sandwich shop,
where high quality, low prices and loud conver-
sations are the rule, will continue in West Tampa no
matter how much the community may change.


plete the restoration of West
Tampa's architectural jewel
- the Centro Espaol. Intown
Homes and West End Tampa
will bring upscale housing to
the community while keeping
West Tampa's historic fabric
intact through the overlay


district guidelines. And new
businesses will continue to
relocate to West Tampa.
There are still a lot of things
that need to be accomplished
in the meantime, butWest Tampa
is on the move. West Tampa is
reborn. West Tampa is back.

A Street Car Ride in 1908 Through West Tampa


The West Tampa-Ybor Street Car: Conductor James White, on street; Con-
ductor Thomas M. Steurt on steps Photograph by A. Santana Studios


by Arsenio Sanchez
By the end of the week of
August 15, 1906, the Tampa
Electric street cars were run-
ning from the farthest end of
West Tampa to Twenty-Second
Street in Ybor City.
West Tampa in its broadest
sense was ,usually taken to
mean not only the thriving mu-
nicipality of that name on the
west side of the Hillsborough
River, but also a narrow strip
of territory that lies within the
corporate limits of the City of
Tampa on the western margin
of the Hillsborough River. This
whole territory like the Fourth
Ward
(Ybor City) of the City of
Tampa was devoted to the Ci-
gar Industry.
Taking the West Tampa-
Ybor City street car, where four
cars were operated and each
car was run on a schedule of
12 minutes, we cross the Hill-
sborough River at the Fortune
Street Bridge, and see to the
right of the street car line the
large three story brick factory
of Julius Ellinger & Co. at the
comer of Green and Garcia
Avenue. It had opened on June
13, 1893, and was one of the
cigar factories of the Havana-
American Co., a producer of
the choicest clear Havana
cigars. This was the first brick
factory in West Tampa and was
later sold to the firm of J.W.
Roberts in April 3, 1909.
On the left was the frame
cigar factory of F. Garcia & Bro.
at the comer of Arch Street and
Garcia Avenue. This factory
was erected for Barranco, Rico
& Co., of Key West, in March
25, 1895,4 but on the death of
Mr. Barranco some legal com-
plications arose, preventing
them from moving in or fulfill-
ing their contract. F. Garcia
& Bro. started work April 15,
1895. Around these factories
were business houses, restau-
rants and tenement houses.
Stretching out westward could
be seen rows of houses.similar
in structure.
At the northern extremi-
ties of the street in front of


the factories (Garcia Ave.), the
Tampa and Sulphur Springs
Traction Company were build-
ing the Ross Avenue Bridge
across the Hillsborough River
on which wuld be laid tracks
for a direct street car line link-
ing Ybor City and West Tampa.
This company was using a
different route and competing
with Tampa Electric Co. May
cigar makers worked in West
Tampa and lived in Ybor City
and vice versa.
As the car sped westward
you could see on the left the
O'Halloran & Co. three story
frame cigar factory located at
the comer of LaSalle Street and
Oregon Ave.
In reaching Nineteenth Ave.
(Rome) we see a branch of the
Atlantic Coast Line Railway
Co. At the end of this line a
one-story brick building stood,
fronting 65 feet on Main St.
and 95 feet on Rome, and
owned by G.Ficarrota. He was
engaged in the wholesale gro-
cery business. Mr. Ficarrota a
City Councilman, supplied the
West Tampa Fire Department
with feed for their horses.

WEST TAMPA
WATERWORKS
Near this intersection could
be seen a steel tower and tank
for the water works which
belonged to the City of West
Tampa. The city had pro-
gressed and also built its own
electric light plant in this area.
On July 25, 1907 the City of
West Tampa sold to the Tampa
Electric Co., the City's light-
ing plant, including engines,
dynamos, poles, wires, lamps
and everything else pertaining
to the lighting plant, for the
sum of forty thousand dollars
($40,000), payable in cash.
Proceeding west we see at
the southwest comer of Green
Street and Fremont Ave., the
El Arte frame cigar factory,
which was the S. & F. Fleitas,
one of the many factories to
move to West Tampa in 1895.
As we go along westward one
could see the brick walls of the
Berriman cigar factory (which


later was sold to Morgan Cigar
Co. in Mayl910) and is located
at the comer of LaSalle Street
and Howard Avenue.
A splendid two story brick.
Municipal Building was erected
around 1900 at the comer-of
Francis Ave. (Albany) and Main
St. At this time (Sept. 1908)
Peregrino Rey, of Cuesta-Rey &
Co., was serving the unexpired
term of Mayor Francisco Milian
since his tragic death. Rey was
elected Mayor the following
term. The lower floor of the
Municipal Building had been
converted to house the City
Fire Department.


The Academy of Holy Names opened in 1896


By September 1908 there
was excellent progress be-
ing made in the paving con-
tracts. Main Street was paved
eastward in the direction of
Tampa, where it would meet
the paving at Ellinger City. The


I


completion of Main St. meant
a second paved thoroughfare
from Tampa to West Tampa,
the first paving believed to be
across Lafayette Street Bridge

A Street Car Ride in 1908 Through West Tampa


Continued from page 21


from Tampa, and then west to
the center of West Tampa. The
West Tampa authorities were
eager to complete the paving
project, which would form a
loop reaching the large cigar
factories which had not been
reached by paving at that time.
This could also be of value in
.protection against fire, allow-
ing the fire wagons (or trucks)
to reach the fire sooner.

PASS THE ACADEMY
By November 1908 West
Tampa boasted of having 15
miles of the finest brick paving
to be found in the country.
Heading north on Francis
Ave. (Albany) we pass the Acad-
emy of the Holy Names school,
built and opened Sept. 4,
1896, at the comer of Spruce
and Francis, 10the St. Joseph
Church built May 3, 1903 at
the comer of Walnut St. and
Francis Ave. 11 the Bustillo
Bros. & Diaz cigar factory cor-
ner Francis Ave. and Pine St.
Next we reach the one-story
box factory that kept busy year
around, located at the comer
of Francis Ave. and Ponce de
Leon St. (Beech).
Turning the comer the three
story cigar factory of Cuesta-
Rey & Co. could be seen at
the corner of Howard Ave.
and Ponce de Leon St. It was
erected in 1895 for the Ha-
vana-Key West Cigar Co., the
second brick factory to be built
in West Tampa.
To celebrate their annual
-production the Cuesta-Rey &
Co. cigar factory had a ban-
quet at the end of each year, it
was referred to as "The Truly
Spanish House," and was held
at the Atlanta Restaurant in
West Tampa.
In November of 1908 the
City Council of West Tampa
changed the name Beech to
Ponce de Leon in honor of the
discoverer of Florida.

MORE CIGAR FACTORIES
Making the loop we reach
Armina Ave. (Armenia) and the
Drew Subdivision in Northwest
section of West Tampa. John
Drew contracted the firm of
Levick and Mobley to construct
the factories of Andres Diaz
and Calixto Lopez. The factory
of Andres Diaz, a four story
brick building was constructed
on the comer of Havana Ave.
and Alvaro St. (Kathleen) and
completed May 15, 1908 and
opened May 27, 1908. The
Calixto Lopez took a little more
negotiation and was completed
on Sept. 1, 1908 at the corner
of Gomez Ave. and Abdela St.
The previous year (1907),
the factories of Garcia & Vega
costing $20,000 and Celestino
Vega $24,000 were built on
Armenia Ave. They were con-
structed of brick three stories
high with a cellar. Continuing
the loop south on Armenia
Ave. we pass the factories of L.
Sanchez & Co., J.M. Martinez,
arriving at the A. Santaella &
Co., comer of Chestnut St. and


Armenia Ave.
The cigar factory of A. San-
taella & Co., like many of the
factories in the Tampa area,
shipped large quantities of
high grade cigars to San Fran-

March of 1906 a carload of
Optimo cigars were shipped by
A. Santaella & Co. to Seattle,
Washington, and from there to
Nome, Alaska to be used by the
gold miners.
QUAKE BLOW TO TAMPA
The San Francisco earth-
quake of April 18,,1906 was a
great blow to the cigar industry
in the Tampa area. All the well-
established Tampa factories
had salesmen regularly em-
ployed in that city.
At the westem end of Chest-
nut Street, where it meets
Roosevelt Ave. (MacDill) we
find the West Tampa Municipal
Park (Macfarlane Park) in the
process of being developed.
The Park is located five to ten
minutes walk from the center
of West Tampa, and easily
reached by street car line, ei-
ther Tampa Electric Co. or the
Tampa and Sulphur Springs
Traction Company.
The new park covered about
40 acres, and is in an ideal
location. It is planted in hand-
some trees and decorative
shrubs and flowers. In the Park

A Shooting at the Fourth of July Cafe


by Dr. Ferdie Pacheco
The Tampa Tribune of 1903
carried an interesting event
that had occurred on the previ-
ous night. In all of my research
and-reading on Lectors and
their impact on the workers I.
never ran across such an un-
usual impact of literature on
the masses.
Two cigar makers worked
side by side in a factory for
years and were fast friends.
One was a Mexican the other
a Spaniard. In time the Mexi-
can married an American lady
who spoke Spanish and also
worked in the same factory.
When the time care for the
Lector to announce his selec-
tion for the month's reading
the workers stopped their work
to hear. He announced he
would be reading Emile Zola's
"Germinal."
The Mexican objected im-
mediately. He would not
have filth read to his wife
who would have to sit in
mixed company and bear
the obscenities outlined in a
French novel. Zola's novels
were known to go into graphic
detail which should not to be
heard in public.
The Spaniard disagreed.
Why should the men be de-
prived of hearing the work of a
great .novelist because he de-
scribed acts which each adult
there performed? The married
men reacted violently and an
argument started which sput-
tered and flickered during the
tense week.
"Tell the women to leave the
room when the Lector reads
the Zola novel," the bachelors


said with what they felt was
reason.
"What, and miss an hour
of work?" the married men
answered.
The Spaniard and the Mexi-
can had eaten supper together
at the Fourth of July Cafe since
they were bachelors and they
continued to do so after the
Mexican took a bride.
This night both men ap-
peared at the Fourth of July
in an agitated state, and both
were armed. The argument
at the factory had reached a
climax. Harsh words. had been
exchanged.
According to the Tampa Tri-
bune article violence broke out
as soon as the two men spot-
ted each other at the Fourth
of July Cafe that evening. The
Spaniard was armed with two
revolvers, the Mexican carried
one six shooter Colt.
When the smoke cleared
the Mexican lay ori the floor
with four holes in his chest.
The Spaniard was down with
a bullet in his chest. Seeing
that the Mexican still lived, the
Spaniard went to the kitchen
and found a large butcher
knife which he plunged into
the Mexican's heart.
In all the years in which I
have observed the effects of
literature, I cannot recall a
similar homicidal effect of the
written word.
Further research on the
subject of literature to be read
yielded surprising episodes. A
1901 Tampa Morning Tribune
netted an article under the
headline, "ere's a Pretty Howdy
Do." The sub-heading ells the


story. "Sex Against Sex -- Men
Want Book Read, and Women
Object. So Both Go On Strike."
The book in question was
called "El Connudo" by Paul de
Koche. The title translates to
"Cuckold." How it was settled
is not recorded.


A side-bar to my investiga-
tions on the fractious nature
of the Latin cigar-workers of
Ybor City reveals a hilarious
example of maximum queri-
moniousness.
Vincente Martinez Ybor,
built a factory, hired an entire


crew from out of town, includ-
ing his capataz (foreman) and
before they set foot inside the
factory they had a disagree-
ment with the owner, and
promptly went on strike! Now
that must be a world record of
labor contentiousness.


In 1894 Cubans built Sociedad Cespedes, a three-story social club that
loomed above West Tampa's business district at Main and Albany. Socie-
ded Cespedes mirrored the social clubs of Ybor City, offering its members
cradle to grave social services. The hall was also home of the West Tampa
Municipal building. West Tampa was once its own city and was actually the
fifth largest city in the State of Florida.

iRemembering West Tampa's

Late Leaders: Tony Garcia


This article was originally
published in La Gaceta on May
2, 2003. Tony passed away
Sunday October 12th, 2003 at
St Joseph's Hospital after a long
illness.
He may have been born with
very little, but Tony Garcia has
dedicated his life to providing
others with everything their
hearts may desire.
To many in the Tampa Bay
community, Tony Garcia may
simply be known as a come-
dian; a lively man who always
seems to "be on" and has a one
liner for every occasion ...
"When I first started school
I could barely speak a word of
English.-.n fact, I still can't."
-1 was so poor growing up,
after I received communipn my
mother would send me back for
seconds."
"I graduated from UT without
honors Suma Cum Lousy."
... but Garcia has done much
more for the.. community than
make people smile at his jokes,
he has also made numer-
ous individuals smile through
countless gestures ofkindness.
For 35 years he helped to make
service-men's lives easier as
director of the Tampa USO and
for; the past 15 years he has
assisted the underprivileged
in the community by organiz-
ing furidraisers for any worthy
cause that asked for his as-
sistance through his business,
Celebrity Circle.
"I have learned throughout
my life that there is nothing-
more important than being able
to give to those who cannot
afford to improve their lives,"
said Garcia. "When you give,
you receive so much satisfac-
tion because you know you.
have done something in your
life worthwhile."
For Garcia, helping those in
need is the delivery of a promise
he made many years ago as a
young child growing up in West
Tampa.
"West Tampa wasn't a rich
town. I grew up during The
Depression, so times were obvi-
ously tough," he explained.
"We hardly had streets at.
all. It was all dirt and everyone.
in the community was poor,.
but we were all friends and ev-.


eryone helped everyone in any
manner they could. On more
than' one occasion, my family
would need assistance and a
neighbor would come to our
aid, and vice versa. That's just
how we were raised to think.
So I always said, 'If I'm in. the
position to help others, 11 do
all I can to help.'"
As a teenager, Garcia found
his best avenue for bring-
ing cheer to other's lives was
through entertainment. By the
age of 16, he was already a well
known emcee and singer in
the West Tampa and Ybor City
community, performing at lo-
cal restaurants, as well as with
Royal American Shows, which
was one of the largest and most
respected carnival midways in
the country for more than 50
years.
Before he could make a
name for himself as an enter-
tainer outside of the Tampa Bay
community, though, he enlisted
in the Air Force and spent a
little over two years in the ser-
vice. When he returned home,
he enrolled at the University of
*Tampa and he picked up where
he left off as an entertainer,
::althouLgh this time he was per-
forming for more than smiles,
but for charity fundraisers.
Upon graduation, the U.S.
ws in the midst of the Ko-
rean War and the Air Force
once again required Garcia's
services. He was stationed at
MacDill Air Force Base, where
the military put his. experience
in entertainment and fundrais-
ing to good.use and assigned
him to the base's special ser-
vices department, handling all
the entertainment and special
events for the base.
When his two year stint was
up, Tampa's division of the
USO (United Service Organi-
zation) named Garcia its new
director, and, suddenly, he was
thrown into the position he had
dreamed of since childhood a
position to help others.
The USO's primary duty is
to serve the military and help
to meet any personal matters
the servicemen and women may
need help with, such as find-
ing a home or a job or helping

their husband or wife adjust to
a new community. Garcia rel-
ished this new opportunity, but
what he loved most, of course,
was his work entertaining the
troops through the USO.
During his 35 years as di-
rector of the Tampa USO, he
organized numerous shows for
MacDill and all the reserves in
the area. These shows included
such world famous acts as
Bob Hope, the Three Stooges,
Jimmy Stewart and Charo.
The highlight of the year
was always the USO Christ-
mas Show he organized for
25 straight years, which al-
ways gamered big name talent.
The entertainers were never
the highlight of the evening,
though, but rather the acts of
philanthropy Garcia orches-
trated were. Garcia would use
the money the Tampa USO
raised during the year to send
some of the servicemen home
for the holidays who couldn't
afford to do so, while also bring-
ing one serviceman's family to
Tampa, arranging the entire
trip for them, from a flight to a
hotel to a rental car.
Garcia said that to this day
he still receives thank you let-
ters every Christmas from the
families he helped.
During his time with the
USO, he also worked with the
Latin American Fiesta Asso-
ciation for 15 years, bringing
such famous entertainers to
their shows as Desi Arnaz and
Ricardo Montalban.


In 1987, Garcia officially re-
tired from the USO and formed
bis own business, Celebrity
Circle, but continued to help
promote shows for the USO in

Remembering West Tampa's

Late Leaders: Arsenio Sanchez


This article was originally
published in La Gaceta on June
22, 2001. He has sincepassed
* away.
He has seen history, he
has helped to make history,
and now Arsenio Sanchez is
making sure that West Tampa
residents remember their his-
tory;
"People tend to forget his-
tory," said Sanchez. "Thirty,
40, 50 years from now, who
knows how much of what we
know now will be forgotten by
our youth, or how much of the
truth will be distorted? So, as a
Historian, I feel it is my duty to
make sure that the important
events in history are remem-
bered for years to come."
Sanzhez' specific field of
interest is the history of West
Tampa, which he said he
became fond of how often it
is overlooked and ignored by
other historians. Most Tampa
historians seem to be inter-
ested in Ybor City only and the
many tales of the immigrants
who founded the historic dis-
trict, but as a lifelong resident
ofWest Tampa, Sanchez knows
the historical importance of the
area and has dedicated much
of his time to educating the
entire community on it.
In order to bring the bright
history of West Tampa into
the public eye, he has written
numerous articles on West
Tampa for the Tampa Histori-
cal Society's journal as well as
The Sunland Times.
He knew, however, that an
article about history can only
do so much, can only reach so
many people and can only be
remembered for so long before

can have my services," said
Garcia..
For example, 13 years ago,
Garcia and a group of his
friends formed the EDDIE
Award (Excellence, Dedica-
tion and Devotion in Educa-
tion), which continues to this
day. The event is an Academy
Award-like celebration hon-
oring those who make great
contributions to education in
the Tampa Bay community.
Whether they are a teacher,
principal, substitute, parent
or janitor, if they go "above
and beyond the call of duty,"
Garcia will make sure they are
recognized.
The most important mo-
ment of the night, though, is
the several hundred scholar-
-r ships awarded to local under-
privileged children.
"I love raising money and
helping those in need, espe-
cially the children," he said.
His greatest success may
have been his 1984 fundraiser,
the NFL Alumni Dinner, which
was held during Super Bowl
,- week here in Tampa. He ob-
tained Gebrge Steinbrenner's


it becomes as forgotten as the
history itself. So, Sanchez and
his friend, the late Armando
Mendez, came up with the
idea of historical markers to
be placed all over West Tampa
in areas of great historical sig-
nificance.
"These markers act as re-
membrances, so that these
moments in West Tampa's
history will never be forgotten,"
he said.
Currently, seven historical
markers don West Tampa.
They became a reality aftr
residents of the area helped
him raise the necessary funds
for the project.
The first marker, which was
installed in 1990, commemo-
rates the location of the first
cigar factory in West Tampa,
A. Del Pino and Co., which
was located where the West
Tampa Library now stands.
Other markers honor Hugh
C. MacFarlane, who founded
West Tampa.
The most interesting his-
torical marker is the one that
pays tribute to the original
Cuesta Rey Cigar Factory,
which was tom down in 1986.
This marker actually sits in
Sanchez' front yard.
He said that after the cigar
factory was torn down due to
the excessive vandalism, he
took the bricks home 'with
him and created a walkway to
honor the once great factory
that was located at Howard
Avenue and Beach Street.
"If the factory was tom down
and nothing was done to com-
memorate its existence, for
how long would it have been
remembered?" asked Sanchez.
"I couldn't let such an impor-

services as co-host, brought
Bob Hope in for entertainment
and raised close to $700,000
for four charities.
Garcia's most popular en-
deavor, though, is his show
"Really Big Shu-u-u," which
pays tribute to entertainment
legend Ed Sullivan. This show
is always a sell out, features
hours of live entertainment and
is beloved by all who remember
the Ed Sullivan Show.
"Once you're in the enter-
tainment business, it's impos-
sible to get out," said Garcia.
"To know you have the ability
and opportunity to bring smiles
to peoples' faces and brighten
up their day is an amazing feel-
ing. I don't think IIlever get out
of the business.
"My whole life has been
dedicated to the two things I
love entertaining and helping
others. Tlat is what life is all
about, helping as many people
as you can without expecting
anything in return.
"Until the day I die, that is
all I want to continue to do. I'm
not afraid of dying," concluding
Garcia with a sly smile. "I just
don't want to be there when it
happens."


tant part of our history become
forgotten because a couple of
vandals decided to have 'fun' at
our history's expense."
Like most local residents
of his generation, Sanchez
understands the importance
the cigar factories played in
the history of Tampa, which is
why he is so adamant about
protecting their heritage. As
a child, his father, Bernardo,
was a cigar factory foreman,
a job that supported Sanchez,
his mother, Francis, and his
five siblings.
"I think when you live histo-
ry, you realize why these places
and events are so significant
and why we need to hold onto
the past," he said.
Experiencing historic mo-
ments has never been a prob-
lem for Sanchez. For instance,
as a private first class in the
Florida National Guard, he
was mobilized along with 300
members of the 116th Field
Artillery to restore order to the
1935 mayoral election, which
was being held during a ter-
rible Florida hurricane and
saw parties supporting both
candidates attempting to fix
the election.
The election turned violent
and Sanchez was thrust into
the middle of the tumultuous
situation.
"I originallyjoined the 1 16th
as a student at Plant High to
earn some extra money dur-
ing those Depression years,"
he said. "But I never thought I
would be in that situation. We
were wherever they thought
there was a commotion. Some
of the others had rifles and
some had Billy clubs. A few
rode around in trucks with
machine guns.
He said the guardsmen were
supposed to suppress any
violence they encountered, but
despite their best efforts there
was plenty of intimidation and
some blood shed that day.
But, this battle was noth-
ing compared to the batters

he would see just a few years
later when he enlisted in the
Navy as a Seabee during WWII.
As a Seabee, it was his duty
to follow the Marines around
and work on construction proj-
ects for the military, such as
bridges and runways. During
his three-year stint, he was in-
volved in such historic battles
as Iwo Jima.
After the war, he returned
to Tampa and began working
in the shipyards, where he
worked before the war, until
his brother told him of the GI
Bill and how it helped veterans
pay for college. Sanchez had
always wanted to further his
education, so he enrolled at the
University of South Florida and
earned a B.A. in bacteriology.
Upon graduation, he took ajob
with the University of Florida's
Civil Engineering Department's
Sanitary Research Lab.
A few years later he left UF
and took a job with the U.S.
Department of Agriculture as
an inspector of fruits and veg-
etables, which he retired from
in 1978.
Free to pursuer other inter-
ests, he began researching and
writing about history for vari-
ous publications. in the area
and also took up oil painting.


He has been a member of the
Tampa Historical Society since
1961 and has written and pub-
lshed a book entitled "West
Florida: A Short History."
He has also written his
autobiography, complete with
pictures of his life. The book
is eloquently written and dis-
cusses how historic moments
in Tampa and world history
related to and affected his life
at the time. The autobiography
is not for sale, but is a personal
reminder and keepsake of the
importance that history has
had on his life.
"Whether it is a story of my
ancestry and my grandparents
* in Spain, the story of the cigar
factories and my parents, or
the stories of World War II and
my involvement, all of it has
had a significant and equal
impact on my life and where
I am today, and I can never
forget that."
Ironically, while Arsenio
Sanchez has worked hard to
make sure that the residents
of Tampa never forget their
history, he has carved himself
a nice niche in the history
books of Tampa. Maybe some-
day, someone will be teaching
Tampa about the extraordinary
life of Aresnio Sanchez.
