for a Merry Christmas and happy

The race for House District 58
continues to develop in the wake
of Michael Scionti's resignation.
Pat Kemp, current chair of the
Hillsborough County Democratic
Party and Tampa attorney, an-
nounced her candidacy, as did
Jackie Rojas Quifiones, President
of the Latin Chamber of Com-
merce and an owner of Accounting


and Beyond. Quifiones is filing as
a Republican.
Kemp's announcement comes
with some controversy among
many in the Democratic Party
who insist that she can't do both
- be chair and a candidate. Ms.
Kemp says she'll take a leave of
absence but maintain her posi-
tion. That means Vice Chair Chris
Brown will run the January 20
Democratic Party meeting.
Kemp came out negative, tell-
ing newspapers that two of her
opponents Janet Cruz and Gil
Sanchez don't live in the district.

Janet Cruz rebuts that by say-

Ecuador
La Asamblea Nacional de Ecuador comienza el primer
debate del proyecto de Ley de Comunicaci6n en medio de
la preocupaci6n de various medios locales de prensa que te-
men que con esta se pretend coartar la libertad de expre-
si6n. El primer andlisis comenzard pocos dias despues de
que los movimientos y partidos politicos de la oposici6n y
del oficialismo, representados en la Asamblea, llegaran a
un acuerdo para modificar el document inicial de studio,
dijo Efe. Los politicos acordaron, entire otros aspects, la
creaci6n de un consejo de comunicaci6n, pero sin faculta-
des para "clausurar o suspender" un medio de comunica-
ci6n. Asimismo, se acord6 que dicho consejo "serd autono-
mo e independiente del Gobierno y (con) poderes ficticos",
y que "se garantizard la libertad de expresi6n sin censura
previa y con responsabilidad ulterior", inform la Asam-
blea. En el 2010 se realizard el segundo debate del proyecto
de ley, que ha levantado uria dura pol6mica al ser consi-
derado por la oposici6n y various medios de comunicaci6n
social como una "ley mordaza".
Cuba
El president cubano, general RalM Castro, clausur6 la
segunda y iltima sesi6n de la Asamblea Nacional de 2009
con un discurso que se centr6 en las relaciones con EEUU
y los problems y perspectives de la economic. Tras denun-
ciar un incremento de las political de Washington contra
el regimen cubano, Castro reiter6 su oferta de "dialogo res-
petuoso" con el gobiemo de Barack Obama y "sincera vo-
luntad de Cuba de solucionar definitivamente el diferendo"
bilateral, dijo Efe. Resalt6 que, tras un afio de niandato, la
administraci6n Obama ignora los reclamos dentro y fuera
de su pais por un cambio de political hacia la isla, y dijo
que el "enemigo esta tan active como siempre" y "crece el
aliento a la subversion abierta y encubierta contra Cuba".
La empobrecida economic de la isla fue otro de los temas
a los que dedic6 mis atenci6n, al advertir que 2010 sera
aun mas "dificil" y en el que no estd dispuesto a correr
riesgos de "improvisaci6n y apresuramiento" introduciendo
cambios.
Colombia
Colombia neg6 actividades de espionaje a Venezuela con
aviones no tripulados dotados con tecnologia estadouni-
dense como lo denunci6 el president Hugo Chavez, en me-
dio de una crisis diplomatica entire los dos pauses. Chivez
dijo durante su program A16 Presidente que un pequeflo
avi6n no tripulado sobrevol6 recientemente una guarnici6n
military en el estado Zulia y asegur6 que se trat6 de una ae-
ronave con tecnologia de Estados Unidos, sefial6 Reuters.
"Colombia no tiene esas capacidades que se described ahi",
dijo el ministry de Defensa, Gabriel Silva, en declaraciones
a periodistas. "De pronto fue que los soldados venezolanos
confundieron el trineo de Papd Noel con un avi6n espia",
precis6 el funcionario. Silva admiti6 el fin de semana que
Colombia enfrenta el riesgo de una agresi6n military exter-
na y reconoci6 que comenz6 a preparar una estrategia de
disuasi6n minima para defender su soberania, que podria
afectar su lucha contra la guerrilla y el narcotrdfico. El
ministry colombiano de Defensa sefial6 implicitamente a
Venezuela como responsible del riesgo de agresi6n, perbo
Chavez le respondi6 y-afirm6 que su pais no tiene ningdn
plan military contra Colombia.
Chile
Una bomba explot6 en la puerta de una compaflia de se-
guros en Santiago, dejando una persona levemente herida
y dafios materials, sin que se conozcan los responsables.
"Estallaron vidrios y ventanales de una parada de auto-
buses, donde habia un hombre de 60 afios que recibe el
estruendo. Se escuch6 a 10 cuadras", inform el capitdn
de Bomberos, Eduardo Prieto, sefial6 AFP. El artefacto fue
instalado en la puerta de la compafiia aseguradora Chile-
na Consolidada. Personal de operaciones especiales y de
criminalistica realize peritajes y revisara las camaras de
seguridad de la zona.
Bolivia
El president Evo Morales express su deseo de que
el continent africano se libere de ataduras imperiales y
hasta prometi6 enviar a lideres sindicales de su pais para
"orientar" a los pueblos de ese continent. "Quiero decir
especialmente a los paises del Africa, no s6lo es important
recuperar el poder politico sino recuperar a los hermanos
que siguen confundidos", dijo. Sugiri6 "recuperar los re-
cursos natural's" y dijo no entender c6mo en Nigeria "los
hidrocarburos siguen en manos de transnacionales", acot6
AP. En 2006, nacionaliz6 los hidrocarburos.

La foto pertenece al iltimo hallazgo antropol6gico hecho en Nazareth, la ciudad
donde naci6 el nifio Jesis. Las noticias dicen que es un aposento humilde del afio 1 de
nuestra era y que, con muchas probabilidades, habria sido conocido por el redentor
cuando, aun niflo, correteaba con amigos y primos por sus alrededores. Se dice
ademais que era un pueblo pequefio, de unas 50 casas, ubicadas en una etensi6n de 1.6
hectireas. Mientras excavaban en los sedimentos de lodo, encontraron cuevas cavadas
en la piedra para esconderse de los romanos cuando invadian el pueblo.


Beneficios tributaries


Apenas a un aflo de la peor
crisis financiera en los Esta-
dos Unidos, desde la Gran
Depresi6n de los afios 30, tal
parece que los sectors poli-
ticos de derecha del Partido
Republican no han aprendi-
do la lecci6n. Gracias a las
gestiones de la actual admi-
nistraci6n de Obama, la eco-
nomia se recupera lentamente
y se evit6 que la misma cayera
en una depresi6n.
Sin embargo, ante la legis-
laci6n propuesta en el Con-
greso para reglamentar el
mundo financiero y de esta
forma evitar la corrupci6n y
los excess de los mercados;
todos los republicans en la
Camara de Representantes
y 27 dem6cratas votaron en
contra de los controls.
La. lecci6n no se. ha apren-
dido y la political republican
que permiti6 la debacle fi-
nanciera estd en pie y estan
empefiados aparentemente
en quebrar la naci6n con la
political de "dejar hacer" para
que los sectors financieros se
auto reglamenten y hagan lo
que les venga en gana.
El propio Alan Greenspan,
que fue el president de la Re-
serva Federal admiti6 que fue
un error dejar que los merca-
dos financieros se auto regla-
mentaran y se vigilaran a si
mismos.
Los Estados Unidos emer-
gieron de la Gran Depresi6n
con un sistema bancario al-
tamente reglamentado. La re-
glamentaci6n funcion6 y evit6
la crisis financiera por mas


de cuatro decadas despues
de la Segunda Guerra Mun-
dial. Pero, seguin la memorial
de la Gran Depresi6n se fue
olvidando, los sectors ban-
carios comenzaron a ejercer
presi6n para eliminar las res-
tricciones y reglamentos y se
estableciera la ideologid de los
mercados libres. Los politi-
cos, presionados por el sector
bancario, aprobaron legisla-
ci6n donde se eliminaba dicha
reglamentaci6n.
La primera gran oleada de
eliminaci6n de la reglamenta-
ci6n ocurri6 durante la admi-
nistraci6n del president Ro-
nald Reagan. El primer gran
desastre de esa political fue la
crisis de las asociaciones de
ahorro y credit, que colapsa-
ron en los afios 80 y les cost
a los contribuyentes un dos
por ciento del Producto Bru-
to Domestico, lo que equiva-
le hoy en dia a $300 billones
para limpiar la debacle.
Pero, los propulsores del
mal llamado "mercado libre",
con todo el desastre que ha
acontecido, donde la econo-
mia de la naci6n estuvo a
punto de colapsar, continuian
con su empefio de eliminar la
reglamentaci6n del mercado
financiero.
Es la mentalidad de estos
sectors que la - reglamenta-
ci6n propicia la burocratiza-
ci6n y el papeleo.
Luego que se relajaron las
leyes para eliminar la regla-
mentaci6n, los banqueros
eliminaron las normas para
prestar dinero creando un


"boom" de credito que ocasio-
n6 una burbuja en los bienes
races y luego de esto le sigui6
el peor declive econ6mico des-
de la Gran Depresi6n. Pero,
la lecci6n no se ha aprendido
al leer la historic y para esos
sectors los culpables de la
crisis financiera fueron las
agencies gubernamentales
y los bur6cratas, no la codi-
cia de los banqueros. Ahora
bien, si fueron esos mismos
banqueros los que presta-
ron dinero a personas que no
calificaban y terminaron no
pagando los pr6stamos, cosa
que ocasion6 la crisis.
Sin embargo, fue este go-
biemo quien rescat6 al mundo
financiero del colapso total, lo
que es contrario a la filosofia
republican de no interven-
ci6n gubernamental. Todos
sabemos que si el gobiemo
no intervenia se quebraba el.
pais. Finalmente, la Camara
de Representantes aprob6 la
legislaci6n para reglamentar
las instituciones financieras,'
a pesar del voto obstruccio-
nista de todos los republica-
nos y de 27 tontos litiles de-
m6cratas.
Ahora corresponde al Sena-
do de Estados Unidos y a los
"centristas" dem6cratas para
que aprueben la reform de
las instituciones financieras
de manera que no ocurra nue-
vamente el desastre econ6mi-
co en los Estados Unidos.
De no aprobarse la legisla-
ci6n, la ideologia de la banca-
rrota de los republicans aca-
bard con la naci6n.


Al Pie de la Letra

Por Abel Ibarra


"Abendmar, Abendmar,
moro de la moreria, el dia en
que ti naciste grandes sefia-
les habia. Estaba la mar en
calma, la luna estaba crecida;
moro que en tal signo nace, no
debe decir mentiras", narra el
romance medieval, escrito a
modo de didlogo entire Abena-
mar y el Rey Don Juan II de
Castilla.
Eran tiempos de paz y de
convivencia entire las tres
principles religiones de la
Europa del moment, y cris-
tianos, musulmanes y judio
no estaban sometidos al ven-
daval del odio que hoy se res-
pira entire seguidores de uno y
otro culto.
Pero, lo significativo del
poema en cuesti6n es que,


mas al.6l de la concordia entire
los mundos, alude a tin cierto
hecho mdgico que supone en
Abenamar un destino espe-
cial.
Los grandes acontecimien-
tos en la historic comienzan a
manifestarse con leves signos
que s6lo el ojo avezado puede
descifrar y, de ese modo, pre-
ver los acaeceres del porvenir.
Jorge Luis Borges dice'que
el azar es el nombre que la
gente le da a la compleja ma-
quinaria de la casualidad y
por eso nos importa sefialar
un hecho arqueol6gico ocurri-
do recientemente.
Se trata del hallazgo de una
casa del Siglo I de nuestra era
en Nazareth.
Si hubiera sido el hallaz-'


go de lo mismo pero en otra
ciudad de Israel, el asunto no
tendria tanta trascendencia.
Pero ocurre que Nazareth
es la ciudad donde el Angel
Gabriel se le apareci6 a Maria
para anunciarle el nacimiento
de Jesuls y, de seguidas, el co-
mienzo de una nueva era.
Que este hecho haya ocu-
rrido en los dias cercanos a
la Navidad quiere decir algo
que, como las sefiales que se
le aparecen a Abenamar, su-
gieren la ocurrencia de algo
especial.
Sea lo que sea, s6lo pedi-
mos como regalo al Nifio Je-
sus, que nos de la paz y nos
conceda la realizaci6n de
nuestros suefios en estas fies-
tas de la Navidad.

Por Patrick Manteiga
Este fue nuestro cuarto viaje
a Cuba, y quedamos asombra-
dos por cuanto hay que apren-
der acerca del pais y, c6mo
estudiandolo, cuanto podemos
aprender de Estados Unidos.
En un taxi hirviente, uno de
nuestros compafieros de viaje
pidi6 ser llevado a los subur-
bios de La Habana. El descon-
certado taxista cubano con-
sider6 la solicitud y, luego, en
una elocuente frase descubri6
el estilo de gobierno y de cul-
tura de Cuba. "Ustedes podrian
ver algunas caras sucias, pero
todos nuestros culos estan lim-
pios".
,C6mo pudo este chofer
cumplir la tarea de llevar ame-
ricanos hacia lo que ellos con-
sideran arrabales? La version
americana indica que esa es un
area con pocos trabajos, alta
criminalidad, pobreza, bajo
nivel educativo, drogas, calls
sucias, basura, malas denta-
duras y bajas expectativas de
vida. Para los americanos es
facil identificar tales areas en
nuestro propio pais. La dife-
rencia visible entire los proyec-
tos de Bayshore Boulevard y el
East Tampa se traduce en una
diferencia tangible en la vida de
la gente.
Avila es un terreno de ca-
sas m6viles aislado del mundo
en el Condado de South, cuyos
residents son mayormente
inmigrantes que trabajan en
granjas.
En Cuba, la fachada de un
edificio que se desmorona (la
cara sucia) no es necesaria-
mente un signo de un hogar
roto y empobrecido. Lo primero
que hay que entender es que
ese es el comunismo. Todo el
mundo trabaja para el gobierno
y, por ese trabajo, cada quien
hace suficiente dinero para
comprar, o ser provisto de, frijo-
les, arroz, electricidad, cuidado

nas areas, caballos y carretas

El segundo aspect a consi-
derar es la propiedad privada:
no existe en Cuba. Nadie tie-
ne una casa propia, segOin lo
entendemos en Esatados Uni-
dos, lo cual significa que no
podemos valorar la ocupaci6n
o el nivel educativo por el lugar
donde se vive, como hacemos
aqui.
Una calle habitada por edifi-
cios que se desmoronan, techos
de hojalata y reses cruzandose
en tu camino, no refleja el nivel
de educaci6n de aquellos que
estan adentro (los culos lim-

El regreso hacia dentro

Por Leonardo Venta
"El unico regreso possible es

Gustavo Perez Firmat
En Cincuenta lecciones de
exilio y desexilio, el escritor cu-
bano-americano Gustavo P6rez
Firmat proyecta la imagen de
. brillante imaginaci6n creative,
' . , a traves del enfrentamiento
cultural y linguistico entire sus
raices y la patria adoptive.
Firmat reflexiona sobre la

linea de no regreso a la isla,

Gustavo Perez Firmat
en espafiol, a pesar de haber
crecido y vivir en un ambiente
saj6n: "...escribir en espafiol es
un acto de reconciliaci6n, con
mi patria, con mis padres, con-
migo mismo", afirma.
Para realizar "ese regreso a
Cuba hacia adentro", Firmat
decide darle un nombre en es-
pafiol a su lugar de studio y a
todo lo norteamericano que le
circunda. Revive su infancia,
epoca en que el idioma de sus
padres era el finico soberano
de sus habilidades lingifisticas,
asi como confiesa lo dificil que
es vivir sin mantener a Cuba en
el pensamiento: "Para no pen-
sar en Cuba, era menester no
pensar en nada".
Al igual que el preso que se
imaginajunto a su amada, mas
all. de las rejas de la carcel,
cada exiliado, cada inmigrante,
se edifica su propia patria muy
"adentro", sin necesidad de vol-
ver a pisar el suelo amado.
. En estos dias navidefios,
lejos de la tierra que nos vio
nacer, de una manera u otra,
realizamos el mismo viaje de
Firmat hacia adentro. Reme-
moramos vivencias desde -el
silencio que transit esta sole-
dad de cielo ajeno, que se agi-
ta entire el deseo de alcanzar el
llamado suefio americano y la
necesidad de llevarse un men-
drugo de patria a la boca.

El Belen y los Villancicos
Una de las principles tra-
diciones es el Belen, una re-
presentaci6n en miniatura de
la Sagrada Familia el dia del
Nacimiento de Cristo acom-
pafiada de los pastorcillos,
Reyes Magos, etc. Se pone en
las casas y puede l1egar a ser
una verdadera obra de arte.
Tradicionalmente, junto a
este Belen se juntan los nifios.
y mayores de la casa a cantar
villancicos, canciones navide-
flas acompafiados de pande-
retas y zambombas.
La cena de navidad y la
misa del Gallo
La tradici6n de la Noche-
buena (Noche de vispera de
Navidad) es totalmente fa-
miliar. De hecho, hasta hace
unos aiios, los bares y restau-
rantes no abrian esa noche (al
menos en Bilbao, donde yo me
cri6). Se hace una cena de ca-
racter familiar, hoy en dia el
menu es muy variado, siendo
lo mis habitual el marisco y
el cordero lechal, aunque has-
ta no hace much cada region
tenia una cena tipica. Los pos-
tres suelen consistir en turro-
nes y mazapanes, postres am-
bos de origen _rabe hechos a
base de almendra y miel, que
antes se hacian en las confite-
rias de cada pueblo pero que
ahora, en su mayoria, son de
producci6n industrial. A las
doce de la noche los. cat61licos
practicantes asiste a la Misa
del Gallo.Actualmente, los j6-
venes, despu6s de las cenas
y reuniones familiares, salen
a festejar la Fiesta Navidefia
con sus amigos.
La comida del dia de
Navidad
La comida del dia de Na-
vidad era la fiesta grande del
afio, se reunia la familiar en su
sentido mas amplio (abuelos,
tios, primos, etc..) y se ponen
las mejores galas en la casa,
la mejor vajilla, etc...
Respecto al menfi, en mi
tierra (Pais Vasco) la tradici6n
dictaba que habia que comer
Langostinos, Angulas,besugo

acumular puntos politicos ha
sido la norma, tanto de parte

problema migratorio de mane-

meti6 en 2008 en medio del
fragor de campafia.
Cuando conmemore su pri-

20 de enero de 2010, Obama
no habra promulgado la refor-

tonces los defensores antici-

"En este pais siempre ha
habido excusas para la jus-

para la inacci6n. El hecho es
que el president de Estados
Unidos (Barack Obama). lleg6
a la presidencia en gran me-
dida porque el apoya esta re-

Los Villancicos y el dia de
los inocentes
Los nifios recorren las ca-
lies en pandillas cantando
villancicos por las casas y pi-
diendo el "aguinaldo" (dulces,
algunas monedas, etc. - com-
parable a la noche de Ha-
ilowen horteamericana pero
sin disfraces). Esta tradici6n
se ha perdido bastante en
las grandes ciudades, pero se
conserve aun en los pueblos.
El dia 28 de diciembre es el
dia de los inocentes, dia en el
que esti permitido gastar bro-
mas a la gente. Como vemos,
Navidad es una epoca llena de
diversion para los chicos.
El dia de Reyes
El dia dedicado a los nifios
es la noche de Reyes. El dia
5 de enero se asiste a la lle-
gada de los Reyes Magos, que
llegan en cabalgata y recorren
las calls de pueblos y ciuda-
des tirando caramelos. Lue-

Gran parte de esta tradi-

pulsar la reform migratoria.
Un afto complicado
El primer afio de presiden-
cia de Obama ha sido dificil:
la crisis econ6mica, el desem-
pleo que supera el 10%, y un
agrio debate sobre la reform
de salud y la Guerra en Afga-
nistAn.
Empero, Obama reiter6 su
compromise con la comuni-
dad inmigrante en varias oca-
siones durante 2009.
En junior sostuvo un en-
cuentro con mas de 30 legisla-
dores de ambos partidos. En
agosto se reuni6 con grupos
de presi6n.
En noviembre la Secretaria
de Seguridad Nacional, Janet
Napolitano, oficializ6 el com-
promiso: "En la primera parte
de 2010 veremos que la legis-
laci6n comienza a moverse".
Recientemente, la Secreta-
ria del Trabajo, Hilda Solis,
vincul6 la reform migratoria
con la recuperaci6n econ6mi-
ca porque la legalidad de tra-
bajadores supone mis dinero
para el fisco en impuestos.
"La contribuci6n de 12 mi-
llones (de indocumentados)
podria representar un trill6n
de d61lares", declar6 Solis
ante el Center for American
Progress (CAP).
En junior de 2007, cuando
fracas6 el uiltimo proyecto de
reform integral, s6lo 12 se-
nadores republicans votaron

Departamento de Justicia por
acusar a tres oficiales del De-

nandoah, Pennsylvania, de
obstruir la justicia en relaci6n
con el asesinato a golpes de
un inmigrante mexicano por
parte de various j6venes el afio
pasado. Nuestra organizaci6n
tambi6n aplaude la decision
del Departamento de Justicia
de imputar a dos j6venes con
cargos federales de delitos de
odio despues de que fueron
absueltos a mediados de este
ano en una corte estatal de la
fatal agresi6n contra Luis Ra-
mirez, un inmigrante indocu-
mentado de 25 afios que tra-
bajaba como obrero. .
El document acusa al jefe
de policia de Shenandoah y a
dos de sus subordinados de
tratar de encubrir la acci6n de
dos j6venes involucrados en
el incident por los vinculos
personales que los oficiales
tenian con los adolescents.

Hallazgo arqueol6gico en Nazareth
Hallazgo- ar queologtco en Nazareth


Cuando faltan pocos dias
para Navidad, un grupo de
arque6logos devel6 el lunes lo
que afirman son los restos de
la primera vivienda descubier-
ta en Nazaret que' data de los
tiempos de Jesius, un hallazgo
que podria revelar mas cosas
sobre c6mo era la aldea cuan-
do vivi6 en ella Maria, segCm
el Nuevo Testamento.
La vivienda y los descubri-
mientos anteriores de tum-
bas en cavernas cercanas in-
sinfian que Nazaret era una
poblaci6n pequefia de aproxi-
madamente 50 casas en una
extension de aproximadamen-
te 1,6 hectdreas.
Estaba claramente poblada
por judios con pocos ingresos
que tenian grutas para ocul-
tarse de los invasores roma-
nos, dijo la. arque61oga Yar-
dena Alexandre, director de
excavaciones en la Autoridad
de AntigUfedades de Israel.
Seglin los restos de barro
y fragments de tiza en el lu-
gar, la vivienda parecia ser la
de una "simple familiar judia",
agreg6 Alexandre, al tiempo


que los arque6logos en el lu-
gar picaban el lodo con peque-
fias herramientas para revelar
paredes de piedra.
Nazaret es uno de los luga-
res mas queridos del mundo
cristiano. Segnm la tradici6n
cristiana, fue la poblaci6nl
donde creci6 Jesils y el an-
gel Gabriel le dijo a Maria que
tendria un hijo de Dios.
"Este bien podria haber sido
-un lugar con el que Jesfis y
sus contemporaneos estuvie-
ran bien familiarizados", dijo
Alexandre. El pequefio Jesiis
pudo haber jugado alrededor
de la casa con sus primos y
amigos,dijo la arque61oga. "Es
una idea 16gica".
El descubrimiento tan cer-
cano a la Navidad ha compla-
cido a los cristianos locales.
"Dicen que si la gente no
habla las piedras hablardn",
dijo entire sonrisas el padre
Jack Karam de la cercana ba-
silica de la Anunciaci6n, ubi-
cada en el lugar donde segCm
la tradici6n cristiana Maria
recibi6 el aviso del angel Ga-
briel.


El equipo de Alexandre
encontr6 los restos de una
pared, un escondite contra
romanos, un patio y un siste-
ma hidrdulico que al parecer
recolectaba el agua del techo
de la casa. El hallazgo lleg6
cuando un grupo de construc-
tores excav6 en el patio de un
ex convento para construir un
nuevo centro cristiano, a po-
cos metros de la basilica.
No esta claro qu6 tan gran-
de era la vivienda. El equipo
de Alexandre ha descubierto
85 metros cuadrados de la
casa, pero podria tratarse de
la propiedad de una gran fa-
milia que se podria extender
muchos mas metros, agreg6.
Alexandre dijo que los ar-
que6logos encartaron vasijas
de barro y tiza que posible-
mente eran usadas por judios
de Galilea en ese entonces.
Los investigadores concluye-
ron que ahi vivia una familiar
judia porque la tiza era usada
por los judios en ese tiempo
para asegurar la pureza de la
comida y se guardaba dentro
de las vasijas.

Meditaci6n para sanar
enfermedades
La meditaci6n con prop6si-

poco a poco en un comple-
mento de la medicine alter-
nativa y. traditional. Existen
muchos tipos de meditaci6n y
casi todas ellas tienen su ori-
gen en las mas antiguas reli-
giones o tradiciones espiritua-

que esta meditando usa cier-

La posici6n corporal, es
important y debe ser basi-
camente c6moda, que no nos
invite al suefio, que permit la
fluidez de la energia por todas
las parties de nuestro cuerpo.
Las razones para meditar
son mil1tiples,' por ejemplo:
para in6rementar la relajaci6n
fisica ante la perspective de
un dia exigente, o para calmar
nuestra mente usualmente
cargada de tareas pendientes
o de situaciones a las cua-
les no sabemos como hacerle
frente, tambien es frecuen-
temente usada en casos de
enfermedades cr6nicas y de-
bilitantes, pues se ha demos-

para fortalecer el sistema in-
munol6gico. y balancear nues-

Durante la meditaci6n
aprendemos a enfocar nuestra

San Pietro


L'Origine del Natale


di Shane Allen Sarver
Nel Vangelo di Matteo,
Gesf ha ditto a Simone "Ti
chiamo Pietro, e su questa
pietra, costruir6 la mia Chie-
sa." Oggi, la Basilica di San
Pietro 6 un monument ma-
gnifico della Chiesa Cattolica.


Veramente, San Pietra e la
pietra sulla quale la Chiesa si
trova.
Nell'anno 326, Costantino,
l'Imperatore Romano, ha or-
dinato la costruzione di una
Basilica sulla collina del Va-
ticano, sulla tomba di San
Pietro, la pietra della Chiesa.
Questa Basilica era un mo-
numento bello della Chiesa e
San Pietro, ma entro 1'anno

era Michelangelo. La nuova
Basilica e pia grande della
vecchia, e ha la forma di una
croce latina. Ha una cupola
grande, e una finestra molto
bella. All'interno, ci sono mol-
te statue di santi, incluso una


statua piui famosa di San Pie-
tro. Anche, la PietA de Miche-
langelo e all'interno. La PietA
e una statua della Madonna
che sta tenendo Gesu morto.
9 una statua molto bella, ma
anche molto triste. Vicino alla
Basilica c'& la Cappella Sisti-
na, una Cappella molto bella,
con le pitture pia famose di
Michelangelo. Nell'anno 1437,
il Papa Sisto IV ha ordinate
la costruzione della Cappella
nei Palazzi Vaticani. Oggi, i
Palazzi sono i musei Vaticani,
una collezione grande d'arte.
Oggi, la Basilica di San Pie-

Storia del Natale
nei secoli
Ii Natale 6 la principal
festa dell'anno, data simbo-
lica della nascita di Gesit
Cristo. II period natalizio
parte dalla vigilia, il 24 di-
cembre, fino all'Epifania, il 6
gennaio. Questa festa deriva
da una mescolanza e sovrap-
posizione di feste, confluite
poi in una sola di matrice
cristiana.
Originariamente, i Celti
festeggiavano il solstizio d'in-
verno - erroneamente, perch
questo avviene il 21 e non il
25 dicembre. I Romani inve-
ce festeggiavano i Saturnali,
in onore del dio Saturno, il
dio dell'agricoltura. Veniva-
no scambiati doni per augu-
rare un period di pace e di
prosperitL. Successivamente,
l'imperatore Aureliano sosti-
tui i Saturnali con la festa del
Sole, ovvero veniva festeggiato
il giorno piu breve dell'anno,
il solstizio d'inverno. Nel nord
Europa si celebrava invece la
festa del raccolto.
Dunque, il 25 dicembre non
e la data reale della nascita di
Gesu e non ci sono tracce di
questa nei Vangeli. Diverse
erano state prese in conside-
razione. La Chiesa Orientale
festeggiava la nascita di Cri-
sto il 6 gennaio perch coin-
cideva con l'originaria festa
di Dioniso. Solo nel IV secolo
d.C., quando il cristianesi-
mo divenne religion ufficia-
le dell'Impero Romano, Papa
Giulio I decise di far conflui-
re le feste di origine popolare
con la cristianitd: nasce cosi
il Natale come lo conosciamo.
Molte delle tradizioni, come
lo scambio dei doni, l'albero
e il presepe, non sono di ori-
gine cristiana, ma pagana e
solo in seguito hanno assun-
to.questo carattere religioso,
unendosi con altre feste di
matrice cristiana come l'Epi-
fania, che nasce originaria-
mente come commemorazio-
ne del battesimo di Gesuf. II
significato religioso attuale e
per6 diverso: poich6 rappre-
senta la fine del period na-
talizio e simboleggia 1'avven-
to dei Re Magi che portano
doni a Gesu Cristo.
La festa commemora la na-
scita di Gesuf, ma inaugura
anche un period di cambia-
mento e di rinnovamento, ca-
ratteristiche che si adattano

Babbo Natale
Tutti i bambini italiani co-
noscono Babbo Natale come
un vecchietto un p6 grassoc-
cio, con le gote rosse che por-
ta i regali in un caldo vestito
bianco e rosso e stivali neri.
Ma chi e veramente Babbo
Natale e da dove viene?
II concetto di figure miti-
ca che porta i doni ai bambi-
ni trae origine da San Nico-
la (o San Nicol6) un vescovo
di buon cuore, risalente al
quarto secolo, di cui tutto-
ra il personaggio di Babbo
Natale porta il nome (Santa
Claus) nei paesi nordeuro-
pei. Fin da bambino Nicola,
dimostr6 doti particolari e
da adulto divenne vescovo di
Myra, locality dell'Asia Mio-
re e qui fece grand opere di
bene. Una delle buone azioni,
che poi lo college all'imma-
girre del portatore di doni, fu
di salvare una famiglia dalla
poverty gettando del denaro
di notte attraverso la finestra
della loro casa. Ma Nicol6 po-
teva fare ben piui di questo:
resuscitava i morti in nome di
Dio e poteva salvare i mari-
nai dalle tempeste. Per queste
doti Nicold fu nominato San-
to e divenne il protettore dei
marinai.
Tradizione e
fantasia a tavola
Natale si festeggia per tra-
dizione con un pasto, insieme
alla famiglia. A second del-
le region puo essere la cena
della vigilia, con tanto di re-
gali aperti a mezzanotte, op-
pure, come accade nella mia
famiglia, 1'infinito pranzo del
giorno di Natale. Come fare
se siete voi i padroni di casa?
Semplice, continuate a legge-
re!
I color tipici del Natale
sono il rosso e il verde, di con-


seguenza e preferibile addob-
bare la tavola con tovaglioli
e piatti di questi color. Ce
ne sono in vendita tantissi-
mi, magari di carta plastica-
ta cosi che poi non dobbiate
fare notte per le pulizie, tanto
ormai anche nell'usa e getta
la bellezza non e piu un op-
tional.
E per rendere il tutto piuL
elegant e romantic basta
un bel centrotavola di fiori
secchi e pigne dipinte, come
quelli che ci facevano fare a
scuola le maestre.
Passiamo ora al meni. Il
pranzo di Natale present ri-
cette e pietanze tipiche, diffe-
renti a second delle diverse
region italiane, ma con un
minimo di organizzazione si
pu6 preparare qualcosa che
sia al contempo buono e fa-
cile.
Si parte dagli antipasti, fa-
cili e per tutti i gusti. Andia-
mo dalle tartine al salmon
a quelle con la care, con un
po' di fantasia tutto pu6 finire
su una tartina trasformando-
la in un leggero piacere per il
palato.
Passiamo ai primi. I piu
tradizionali sono i. ravioli in
brodo, che risultano leggeri,
oppure pappardelle al ragf.
Anche qui le preference va-
riano in base alla region di
provenienza, cosi come per i
second. Vanno pero segnala-
ti i ripieni, dalla faraona ar-
rosto al cappone ripieno lesso;
insomma, la care ripiena e
un must del pranzo natalizio.
Si pu6 poi pensare a un dop-
pio second, magari piu leg-
gero, quale il bollito di care
o 1'arrosto con patate, che e
perfetto in caso tra gli invitati
ci siano pure dei bambini, per
tradizione piu semplici nei
gusti culinary.
Infine, come per ogni fe-
sta che si rispetti, i dolci sono
immancabili. Per quanto ri-
guarda il Natale, sulla tavo-
la dobbiamo sempre trovare
torrone, ricciarelli, pandoro,
panettone e, se volete essere
ricordati per la miglior ricetta
del dolce di Natale, il delizioso
tronchetto ricoperto di ciocco-
lata.
E ora un brindisi... Cin
cin... Buon Natale!

As the Tampa Bay Buc-
caneers near the finish line
of one of the worst seasons
in franchise history, a fan's
thoughts may wander back to
happier, simpler times.
In 1979, Tampa Bay
shocked the NFL by racing to
a 5-0 start. Coming off a 5-11
record in 1978, the Bucca-
neers could at least be seen
at the beginning of the season
as a team headed in the right
direction. Still, few could have
anticipated such a -stagger-
ing start. Amazingly, after five
weeks, the Buccaneers were
the only undefeated team in
the league.
"No one gave the Bucs a
chance at anything," says
Dick Crippen, a former mem-
ber of the Buccaneers broad-
cast crew. "Yet somehow, in
training camp, they got the
idea they could win."
Win they did. The Buc-
caneers finished with a 10-6
record and won the NFC Cen-
tral Division. This set up a
divisional playoff showdown
against the Philadelphia Ea-
gles on December 29 at Tam-
pa Stadium.
Former Tampa Mayor Bob
Martinez had just entered of-
fice as the Buccaneers began
their climb in the standings.
By late December, Buccaneer
mania had clearly run wild in
the community.
"The city became alive with
talk, preparation, shopping
for playoff memorabilia and
trying to get playoff tickets,"
Martinez recalls.
The success of the team,
in turn, gave Tampa a unique
opportunity to showcase it-
self on a national stage. This
would be the first game in
team history to be played in
front of a nationally televised
audience.
"Tampa was marketing
itself nationally and inter-
nationally as a place to do
business, work and play," he
says. "The playoff game gave
us center stage during the run
up to the game and the game
itself.
"It's great for a community
to have a big topic like the
Bucs, to talk about in addi-
tion to weather, politics, etc.
Having big time sports gives
a community a sense of place
and pride. Once'the Bucs got
their winning ways, Johnny
Carson picked on something
else, game attendance went
up and the players stopped
fighting being part of the
Bucs' organization."
Much like the. Buccaneers
in 1979, up until 2008, the


Tampa Bay Rays were a team
that knew nothing but losing.
Making the playoffs and then
winning the American League
pennant were considered
such major accomplishments
that anything after would be
gravy. In both instances, play-
ers and fans had cause to slip
into happy-to-be-there mode.
"Like the Rays in 2008, the
Bucs were The Little Engine
That Could," Crippen says.
"When the fans heard that
the Eagles would be the op-
ponent, I think many of them
figured it had been a great
ride and were just proud the
Bucs had made the playoffs."
The Eagles, despite mak-
ing the playoffs as a wild card
at 11-5, actually had a better
record than Tampa Bay and
were considered a legitimate
Super Bowl contender.
"All the experts had Phila-
delphia going to the Super
Bowl, and I think they were
even a favorite to win it," re-
calls radio personality Jack
Harris, then a member of the
Buccaneers broadcast crew.
"We were supposed to be just
a bump on their way to be-
ing champions. I don't think
anyone gave us much of a
chance."'
True enough, the Eagles
were installed as a four-point
favorite in the game despite
being the road team. Because
of Tampa Bay's top-rated
league defense, most prognos-
ticators anticipated a close
game no matter the outcome.
Brent Musburger, host of The
NFL Today on CBS, proved to
be one of the few exceptions,
predicting a 21-point Phila-
delphia victory.
Head Coach John McKay
anticipated a much closer and
low-scoring contest. He also
said that, to win, the Bucs
would have to pass the ball ef-
fectively - and often.
"Just taking the ball and
driving it on them, I don't
think you are going to do
that," he said. "I just don't see
anybody doing that."
Whether McKay truly be-
lieved that or just said it as a
ruse, the Buccaneers did the
exact opposite on their open-
ing drive of the game. On a day
officially proclaimed by Mayor
Martinez as "Tampa Bay Buc-
caneers Day," it turned out to
be Ricky Bell Day at Tampa
Stadium.
On a clock-chewing, moral-
boosting opening drive, the
Buccaneers controlled the ball
for 9:25, marching 80 yards
down the field for a touch-
down. Bell, the workhorse on

this drive and for the day, got
into the end zone on a fourth-
and-goal from the Philadelphia
4-yard line to give Tampa Bay
the early lead.
This would be just the be-
ginning. With his team leading
10-0 in the second quarter,
Bell scored his second rushing
touchdown of the day, a 1-yard
run to give the underdog Buc-
caneers a three-score lead.
Tampa Bay's defense lived
up to its billing as well, bul-
lying and harassing quarter-
back Ron Jaworski all after-
noon and limiting him to 15
completions on 39 attempts.
The league's top defense held
Pro Bowl running back Wilbur
Montgomery to just 35 yards
on 13 carries. The hard-hitting
secondary and linebacking
corps, in the meantime, forced
drops on catchable balls and
held star wide receiver Har-
old Carmichael to just .three
catches.
On the other side, Doug
Williams had an efficient if not
spectacular game at quarter-
back - 7-15 for 132 yards, 1
TD, 1 INT - but managed the
offense and made key throws
at the right time. Bell simply
had a monster performance
with an NFL record 38 carries,
rushing for 142 yards and two
touchdowns.
Despite a late rally, the
Buccaneers held on for a 24-
17'victory in a game that really
wasn't as close as the score
indicated. Tampa Bay domi-
nated on both sides of the ball
and left no doubt as to which
was the better team. The vic-
tory sent Tampa Stadium into
what Crippen calls a state of
"delirium."
"When the Bucs ended up
beating the Eagles, the eupho-
ria set in and the fans believed
anything was possible," he
says. "Everyone believed the
team was capable of going all
the way."
Harris recalls how being the
underdog in the game made
the outcome that much sweet-
er.
"Consequently, it was al-
most like a Super Bowl win,"
he says. "We had beaten the
best team arguably in the NFL,
and no one expected it. I think
the unexpected wins are the
best ones.
"But again, almost all the
wins that season were pret-
ty much unexpected, which
tends to heighten the level of
elation on the part of fans and
players alike, almost exponen-
tially."
That afternoon, the Buc-
caneers earned the respect of
the Philadelphia Eagles and,
finally, the nation. Losing the
following week to the Los An-
geles Rams, while disappoint-
ing, did nothing to diminish
the good feelings engendered
by the Buccaneers, who, 30
years ago this week, were in-
deed the toast of the town.

Sport or

Hunting is a primitive
sport. It involves doing what
man has done on earth since
the beginning of time: kill-
ing an animal for consump-
tion. Some opine -that the
sport is cruel. Others believe
it is a necessary activity to
maintain healthy deer herds,
since most predators have
been eliminated. Most hunt-
ers are honorable people from
all walks of life, respectful of
others' rights and properties.
Some, as it occurs in all hu-
man activities, unfortunately
are not. Hunting sports are
legal and economically ben-
eficial to the state's economy,
as well as great opportunities
for families to enjoy the out-
doors together - and, certain-
ly, hunting is the only way to
acquire coveted venison.
To harvest deer, some
hunters stand quietly in the
forest and wait for a deer to
pass within shooting distance.
Others use dogs to chase the
deer from their habitat. Most
who hunt with dogs have
small leases bordering other
properties that, in many cas-.
es, do not allow hunting with
dogs. Others have no leases at
all and hunt public property,
where the practice is. allowed.
Few handle their dogs and
their hunts properly and treat
their dogs kindly.
During most dog hunts in
Florida, the dogs are released
into a parcel of property to fol-
low the scent of a deer. The
genetic predisposition of these
dogs is such--that they will
track and chase any deer, day
or night, across property lines;
highways or homesteads.
Most of these so-called deer
hunters drive pickup trucks
equipped with radios to main-
tain communication with their
fellow hunters. They drive at
break-neck speeds through
the county, state and forest
roads .following the sounds
of the dogs. During these at-
tempts to cut-off the fleeing
deer, dog hunters many times
shoot into the property of oth-
ers without consideration for
hunters that may be walking
or standing in the forest. The
dogs, following their natural
instincts, will cross roads,
sometimes into the path of ve-
hicles, and follow the fleeing
deer into any property until
exhaustion takes its toll.
The game these individu-
als play is .a dangerous and
negligent one for themselves,
other hunters and the dogs
they so mistreat. The practice
is an unusually cruel and cal-
lous for both the dogs and the
deer.
The State of Florida has for
some time considered the mis-
treatment of animals, includ-
ing dogs, as a crime. Florida
Statutes include: 828.02 Def-
initions. - In this chapter, and
in every law of the state relat-
ing to or in any way affecting
animals, the word "animal"
shall be held to include ev-
ery living dumb creature; the.
words "torture," "torment,"
and "cruelty" shall be held to
include every act, omission, or
neglect whereby unnecessary
or unjustifiable pain or suffer-
ing is caused...
828.12 Cruelty to animals. -
(1) A person who unneces-
sarily overloads, overdrives,
torments, deprives of neces-
sary sustenance or shelter,


Crime?

or unnecessarily mutilates,
or kills any animal; or causes
the same to be done, or car-
ries in or upon any vehicle,
or otherwise, any animal in a
cruel or inhumane manner,
.is guilty of a misdemeanor of
the first degree, punishable as
provided in s. 775.082 or by a
fine of not more than $5,000,
or both.
(2) A person who intention-
ally commits an act to any an-
irmal which results in the cruel
death, or excessive or repeat-
ed infliction of unnecessary
pain or suffering, or causes
the same to, be done, is guilty
of a felony of the third degree,
punishable as provided in s.
775.082 or by a fine of not
more than $10,000, or both.
(a) A person convicted of
a violation of this subsec-
tion, where the finder of fact
determines that the violation
includes the knowing and in-
tentional torture or torment of
an animal that injures, muti-
lates, or kills the animal, shall
be ordered to pay a minimum
mandatory fine of $2,500 and
undergo psychological coun-
seling or complete an anger
management treatment pro-
gram. ,
Driving north on Highway
19 beyond Pasco County ex-
poses this issue with infinite
clarity. Dead hunting dogs lit-
ter the grassy sides of the road.
Wandering, lost and starving
dogs are spotted frequently.
Also seen along that stretch of
highway are multiple pickup
trucks with dog boxes on the
end of the truck bed. Inside
those boxes, crowded beyond
belief, exposed to rain, heat
and cold, are the dogs. The
ones that eventually make it to
the roads are lucky; no one re-
ally knows with certainty how
many perish in the forests.
Last week, during a hunt-
ing excursion on the private
land of a friend, a total of nine
hunting dogs found refuge on
his property. Starving, cov-
ered with ticks and fleas, the
animals could hardly walk.
After feeding the dogs, my
kind friends transported them
to a local pen, where hunters
can come to collect their lost
dogs. One -of the. dog's hind
quarters were rubbed clean of
fur, and the exposed skin was
raw and irritated. Some of the
dogs carried expensive radio
or electric shock collars.
The statute is broad and
clear in its definitions and
prohibitions. Certainly, the
animals 'the dogs chase are
subjected to torment as they
run for hours at a time away
from the dogs. In turn, those
dogs allowed to run through
the forest until exhausted are
often tormented, neglected
and deprived of, food, clean
water and a safe environment.
If that is the law in the
State, of Florida, why is it that
the law enforcement agencies
of this state ignore animal
cruelty laws and allow the in-
conceivably cruel treatment
of hunting dogs to continue?
Where are the humane soci-
eties of those counties where
the use of dogs continues to
exist?
If dogs are a man's best
friend, those who continue to
use them to hunt deer per-
haps do not adhere to that
belief.

Hunting with Dogs:












SILHOUETTES

by Jessica Lalau


It has certainly been a while
since we last heard from Timo-
thy Cratchit, better known
to most as Tiny Tim. That's
166 years in exact figures,
since the first publication
of Charles Dickens' ground-
breaking A Christmas Carol
hit the shelves, sending the
first ripples of shock and awe
through society at
the true account of Tint
Ebenezer Scrooge's IIl
paranormal Christ-
mas experience.
Since then, quite
a lot has changed
for Tiny Tim as well.
It must be said
first and foremost
that, besides the
namesake, there
isn't much that's .
tiny about Tiny Tim
these days. From
his war .on health
to wedding aisles,
from rags to riches
to rags again, Tiny
Tim has, over the
170-year course of
his medically gifted
(if somewhat super-
naturally touched)
life, accumulated
the sort of presence
that lights up the
small room he now
occupies at John
Knox Village in
Tampa, that even
his aged and wheel-
chair-bound body
cannot diminish.
He eyes are clear,
his voice strong, his
London accent still
untouched, and, "Imayl
upon introduction,
he shakes your hand with a
firm grip and a nod of the head
as he announces, "You can
call me Tiny Tim, since those
federal snakes won't pay for
my hip replacement and I
have to sit in this bloody thing
all day and look up to talk to
anyone."
It wasn't always all bad-
tasting bitterness for Tiny Tim,
however. In fact, just following
the nationwide release of A
Christmas Carol and the suc-
cess of a medical treatment for
the distal renal tubular acido-
sis that ailed him for so long
- which was funded by none
other than Mr. Scrooge himself
- Tiny.Tim claims that things
couldn't have been better.
"First thing that went right
was getting healthy," said Tiny
Tim. "As you've probably heard
all about in Christmases past,
present and yet to come, I was
suffering. And I owe it all to
Ebenezer, too, even though
he had always been a right
scoundrel before then. A real
bastard."
Directly after Dickens' pub-
lication went from ho-hum to
hot topic, things got even better
- for a time.
"It was wonderful at first,
just brilliant. My family and I
finally had money and didn't
have to struggle every day to
find soup to put on the table
for supper. I got all the choco-
lates and toys that I wanted,"
said Tiny Tim, "but nobody
cared about me, or about what
I could do. I quickly discovered
that I was little more than an
accessory to Scrooge's and
Dickens' fame. All they want-
ed to know about were the
ghosts and all that balder-
dash. It happened, of course,
but it happened around me.
I wasn't visited, and the me-
dia knew that and was first
to point out my paranormal
inadequacies.
"So I acted out, you know,
to get everybody's attention. I
wanted them to see that I was


newsworthy, too - in my own
way."
So he began to frequent the
seedier side of London, often
turning up in underground
gin-mills, playing private, high-
stakes poker and roulette, only
to emerge in the wee hours
of the morning, disheveled,
wrecked from head to toe and

be a little grouchy, but I'm no S(

utterly picture-perfect.
"I made up my mind that if
I couldn't be famous, I would
be infamous," said Tiny Tim.
"The papers loved it, and so
did the ladies:"
Riding high on his public
persona of infamy, it didn't
take long for Tiny Tim to ac-
quire a reputation as a ladies'
man as well. Women seemed
defenseless against Tiny Tim's
good-guy looks, bad-boy atti-
tude and story of triumph, and
his list of rumored conquests
- along with his number of
trips down the aisle - grew to
international proportions. That
is, until he crossed the wrong
border.
"I won't name names - I'm
a gentleman, after all - but I
was married to a well-to-do
and well-placed English girl at
the time, and the other woman
was high-profile Russian roy-
alty. Grand duchess stuff, you
know?" said Tiny Tim. "Well,
the English didn't like that too
much. They didn't get on too
well back then, Russia and
Britain. So they practically ran
me right out of the kingdom."
Tiny Tim sought refuge in
America, and as he set foot
on Manhattan soil, he became
conscious of his next conquest:
Wall Street.
"Despite that nasty divorce,
I wasn't hurting for money.
Wall Street was just entic-
ing. It was like a new form of
gambling. Slower than poker
and less risky than roulette.
By then, I was getting on in
age and it seemed like a more
legitimate- way to- continue
gambling. And it yielded bigger
profits," said Tiny Tim, smiling.
The profitable side of Wall
Street is no mystery to Tiny
Tim, who, over the course of
his almost 100-year affiliation
with the financial district, has
built up for himself quite the
portfolio. He refuses to divulge
the exact figure of his net
worth at his height of success,
but he makes no secret of the


wheeling and dealing friends
he once kept. Rockefeller,
Vanderbilt, Carnegie. In fact,
Tiny Tim brags that he taught.
B. C. Forbes everything that
the future Forbes magazine
founder knew.
Tiny Tim and his not-so-tiny
stock portfolio have weathered
two world wars, Black Fri-
day, the Great De-
chi pression, the Civil

Women's Lib, disco,
the 80s and even
the Bush Adminis-
tration. It all came
crashing down,
however, with the
bankruptcy of one
premier financial
institution: Enron.
"They kept their
investors in the
dark, of course,
those, good-for-
- nothing crooks,"
i exclaimed Tiny
Tim. "They loaded
. me ,up with feel-
'- good investment
stories and played
on my good nature
and soft spot for
health care, they
A did. Fed me all
these lies about a
future partnership
with Pfizer, about
some drug to cure
malaria or AIDS or
some other such
thing." Tiny Tim
shook his head. "I
was a fool to be-
lieve them. They
could hardly cater
scrooge " a lunch, let alone
cure AIDS. What
was I thinking? There's a quar-
ter of a billion dollars I11 never
see again."
It was then that Tiny Tim
fell on hard times and, shortly
thereafter, a hard surface.
He slipped on the hardwood
ballroom floor of the Cuban
Club during an impromptu jig
and, as a result, fell and broke
his hip.
He is, today, on a mission
to improve health care, hav-
ing been denied multiple times
for federal aid to fund a much
needed hip replacement.
"They say that at 170 some
odd years old I'm no longer
eligible!" cried Tiny Tim. "Well,
I'm hard pressed, to be honest,
to think of anyone who needs
a hip replacement more than a
170-year-old. They recite some
rubbish about life expectancy,
but who in the world .could
have predicted I would live
this long anyhow?" He shook
his head, anger and disbelief
palpable on his mood.
It has been, to say the least,
a series of unfortunate events
that has led Tiny Tim to the
room he now occupies on the
tenth floor of John Knox Vil-
lage, wheelchair bound and
bitter for the holidays. He ac-
knowledges the resemblance
he now bears for a former men-
tor, the same one who turned
it all around for him just 166
years ago.
"I may be a little grouchy,
but I'm no Scrooge," said Tiny
Tim, a slight twinkle in his
eye. "I can still remember the
Christmases we had when I
was truly a tiny little Tim. We
could hardly afford a piece
of meat big enough to cut
and share between the whole
family. Some years we had a
slice of ham no bigger than a
shilling, a handful of peas and
some mashed potatoes. It was
pitiful. times, but we had each
other. I haven't lost sight of
that, or what's important."
In Tiny Tim's small space
on the tenth floor of John


Knox Village is a small Christ-
mas tree. It sits on his desk,
no more than 24 inches tall,
atop a 2010 day planner he*
looks forward to using. Its
plastic bristles are inelegant
and smell of attics past, but
the ornaments speak another
story. One comes from Russia,
an heirloom from the duchess
he knew so long ago. Another
is in the shape of a single
crutch, a gift from Ebenezer
the year after Tiny Tim was


ARIES (March 21 to April
19): The New Year brings chal-
lenges that can change many
things in your life. You need to
be prepared not only to con-
front them, but also td-.deal
with what happens afterward.
TAURUS (April 20 to May
20): You have what it takes to
set your goals quite a bit high-
er this year. Learn what you
need to know and put what
you learn into your efforts. A
partner offers loving support.
GEMINI (May 21 to June
20): In true Gemini Twin fash-
ion, you're conflicted about a
decision you know you'll have
to make in this New Year. Best
advice: Get the facts before
you make any commitment.
CANCER (June 21 to July
22): A friend offers you an
exciting opportunity for this
New Year. Although your posi-
tive aspects are strong in most
respects, caution is advised.
Investigate before you invest.
LEO (July 23 to August 22):
You can make this New Year
a roaring success. Start by re-
adjusting your goals to reflect
the changes in the economy.
Your den-mate offers both
wise and loving support.
VIRGO (August 23 to Sep-
tember 22): The New Year
brings new opportunities for
change. But you need to be
ready to move from the com-
fortable status quo to the
challenging unknown. It's up
to you.
LIBRA (September 23 to
October 22): Your most im-
portant New Year's resolution
should be to work out prob-


cured and, for the first time,
walked unassisted to Christ-
mas dinner. There are gold,
silver and crystal ornaments,
suns and moons, orbs of every
color, handmade trinkets and
candy canes galore, gifts from
his John Knox neighbors and
staff; and, at the very top, a
single haloed angel.
"I've always had a guardian,
you know, in some form or
another," said Tiny Tim. "We
all have."


lems with a family member
in order to avoid continu-
ing misunderstandings. Do it
soon, for both of your sakes.
SCORPIO (October 23 to
November 21): The New
Year has much to offer the
intensely determined Scor-
pian, who isn't afraid to take
on challenges and stay with
them until they surrender
their rewards.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22
to December 21): You'l have
many fine opportunities in
this New Year. But be warned:
Reject offers of "help." You
work best when you're free to
be your own creative self.
CAPRICORN (December 22
to January 19): The New Year
offers changes that you might
feel you're not quite ready for.
Best advice: Deal with them
one step at a time, until you've
built up your self-confidence.
AQUARIUS (January 20 to
February 18): Travel is a
dominant aspect of the New
Year. This could mean relo-
cating to another city (or even
another country): in connec-
tion with your education or
your career.
PISCES (February 19 to
March 20): This New Year
brings news about a change
you've been anticipating. You
might have a problem per-
suading .a loved one about
your new plans, but he or she
will soon go along with them.
BORN THIS WEEK: You
have a gift for making peo-
ple feel safe and protected.
You would make an excellent
youth counselor.

will be a big handicap in such
a short race.
Jose Vazquez is also in the race
after having his rights restored in
August following time served for
a felony.

Steve Anderson is going solo,
leaving the firm Ruden McClosky
on January 1. Under the firm, he
is contracted as the general coun-
sel of the Tampa Sports Authority.
The Authority has agreed to keep
him on as a general counsel and to
use Ruden McClosky for litigation
and employment issues.

Democratic State Represen-
tative Betty Reed has a young
(25-year-old) Republican chal-
lenger, Rick Holt. He works at
CCM Graphics Solutions and is
currently enrolled at USF pursu-
ing a criminology degree.
Holt tells us he's Republican
because he's pro-life, pro-guns,
pro-free speech and supportive of
a strong military.

Former State Representative
Sara Romeo has filed for Tampa
City Council District 1.

Our condolences to J.W. Strick-
land, whose wife, Margie, passed
away on Sunday, December 20.
The two were heavily involved in
local Democratic and union poli-
tics for decades. They retired to
Georgia several years ago.

The Supervisor of Elections will
send out 5,753 ballots in District
58 by mail around January 18.
They are for voters who signed
up for mail ballots for all elections
over a two-year period.

This week and the next will be
a review of 2009's "As We Heard
It" columns.
January 9
We're not the only one who questions
Lou Dobb's racial fairness. The Southern
Poverty Law Center (SPLC) gave its first
Dobbsy Award last month. The award
named after CNN anchor Lou Dobbs is
given to mainstream figures who peddle
phony propaganda that denigrates an
entire group of people. Dobbs has used
the majority of his airtime to bash and
blame undocumented Mexican migrants
for every ill that affects America.
*Two Tampa traditions died this week
because of the economy. Jim Walters is out
of the home building business and Busch
Gardens is out of the free beer business.
*We've heard a rumor that there's a
deal between County Commissioner Ken
Hagan and State Senator Victor Crist....
The new deal is to help Hagan skirt
term limits anrd serve on the commission
for 14 years. Supposedly, Hagan would re-
sign from his district County Commission
seat in 2010, leaving the seat available for
Crist. Hagan would then run for Norman's
open seat that same year.
January 16
The Lingerie Bowl is still up in the air
having yet to receive the proper permits
but if it does kick off, it will be at a site
in West Tampa on a couple of empty lots
between Fig and Gray streets.
*Pat Kemp's first meeting as chair
of the Hillsborough County Democratic
Executive Committee was well run, or-
ganized and efficient - a tall order for
a bunch of Democrats. We noticed that
something was missing, though - minori-
ties. Black attendance was low compared
to past meetings and there were also few
Hispanics.
January 23
A deep rift has formed between former
Friends. The publisher of the Florida
Sentinel Bulletin, Blythe Andrews, Jr.,
is hopping mad at County Commissioner
Kevin White....
The Florida Sentinel Bulletin, the
area's largest Black-owned and targeted


newspaper is now refusing to run any
advertisements including the name of
Commissioner White.
*We were part of the masses that trav-
eled to Washington D.C., to be firsthand
witnesses to history. We wanted to see the
moment when the promise of the Decla-
ration of Independence was confirmed.
When all the world could believe in what
President Barack Obama phrased so elo-
quently that in America, "All are equal,
all are free and all deserve a chance to
pursue their full measure of happiness."
Being on the Capitol lawn at such a
moment brought home just how beauti-
ful and special our democracy is. How
a political process that is ugly, divisive,
taxing and cynical can still bring about a
peaceful transition....
His address leads us to believe this
president aspires to greatness and we
hope and pray he meets the challenges
with creativity, curiosity and resolve. He
challenges us not 'to fear but to, "...pick
ourselves up, dust ourselves off, and begin
again the work'of remaking America."
January 30
The end of the Bush era and the dawn
of the Obama era was viewed with op-
timism by those who hope to normalize
relations between the US and Cuba. Our
local dailies have editorialized to Obama
to soften the embargo. Businesses, ports
and cruise lines have voiced their wishes.
Supporters have sent letters and passed
messages in hopes that President Barack
Obama will change the 48- year-old stale
and failed policy. We are quickly losing
our optimism.
*We hear one of the U.S. attorneys
who will be replaced is A. Brian Albritton
of the middle district of Florida.
February 6
No public dinero for Latinos. Out of the
top 100 highest paid county government,
authority and agency positions, only 3%
are held by Hispanics. Blacks do far bet-
ter with 9%. If we expand the view to the
top 200, Hispanics occupy 4% of the posts.
We're almost beaten out by Asians, who
are at 3.5%.
*A group of South Tampa parents,
empowered by their win in blocking the
erection of a cell phone tower on the cam-
pus of Coleman Middle School, is now on
a crusade to block and remove cell towers
from all schools.
February 13
How many Republican Party State
Committeewomen does it take to insult a
whole race of people? One - Carol'Carter.
The party should remove her from office
for three reasons - the- racist joke - the
lack of an immediate and sincere apol-
ogy - and third and most importantly for
being stupid enough to send out an e-mail
with racist statements. The GOP needs
sharper people to run the party.
February 20
Lewd, nasty, open sex, drunks, men
and women peeing behind buildings,
underage drinking, fights, bare breasts
and angry residents - in the past when
newspapers used these words to describe
one of our local parades, it was usually
the Knight Parade in Ybor City. Not this
year. The Gasparilla Day Parade was the
notorious bad boy in 2009.
*David Caton, the local Grand Wizard
of the RRR (Radical Religious Republi-
cans) has a beef with State Senator Victor
Crist....
Caton finds Crist departing from the
conservative philosophy because he sup-
'ported a cigarette tax and expansion of
the Florida Civil Rights Act.
Caton, whose study of the Bible is only
surpassed by his years of research of skin
flicks, wants us to believe Jesus was pro-
cigarettes and anti civil rights.
*The steering committee for the Hill-
sborough County Democratic Executive
Committee made a disappointing deci-
sion, with support from the general mem-
bers, to close the local Democratic Party
headquarters....
February 27
Seen around town on people's t-shirts...
an orange button with one five-letter
word - Greco.
Is he up for a third round for Mayor?
* Last week Tampa Port Commissioner
Carl Lindell was so motivated by a three-
minute Al Fox speech issued on Tampa's
need to trade with Cuba, that he made a
motion at the end of the Port Authority's
monthly meeting to have port emissaries
travel to Cuba. You could have heard
a pin drop after the motion due to the
uncomfortable silence. The next sound
was the squeal of the brakes on any such
adventure. Mayor Pam lorio, County


Commissioner Rose Ferlita and port
authority member Hoe Brown quickly
turned the discussion to their concerns of
all the problems, real or imaginary, with
such a trip.
March 6
Former Florida House Speaker Marco
Rubio has announced for U.'S. Senate.
*Senate Bill 2108 is of major concern
to Hillsborough County and 600 civil
service employees. It would shift many
responsibilities of the Clerk of the Circuit
Court for record keeping, fine and fee col-
lections, accounting and archiving to the
administration of the Court and the Chief
Judge. Last week we editorialized against
the bill for many reasons including lack
of public oversight, costs, loss of 600 civil
service jobs to ones of patronage and the*
elimination of many checks and balances
over the judicial system that have existed
for 147 years.
We were shocked that every legisla-
tor we talked to in Tallahassee had no
in-depth knowledge of the bill, the issues
surrounding it nor the far reaching impli-
cations of passing it.
March 13
Former County Commissioner Brian
Blair made a mistake by filing a lawsuit
against the man who bested him in a
battle royal for his county commission
seat, current champ and commissioner,
Kevin Beckner.
* State Senator Larcenia J. Bullard
who, when hearing that an anti-beasti-
ality bill carved an exemption for animal
husbandry, asked, "People are taking
these animals as their husbands?"
Only in Florida.
*Another example of fiscal foolishness
is the Florida Department of Transporta-
tion's effort to buy 61.5 miles of CSX rail-
road tracks and right of way in a $649 mil-
lion deal. This price was negotiated based
on two appraisals made in 2006 which
valued the 61.5 miles at $407 million and
$420 million. This was based on outright
ownership but the deal allowed CSX a
perpetual easement which, if considered
during appraisal, would have lowered it....
The taxable value of the 61.5 miles of rail
according to the Florida Department of
Revenue is $22.25 million, far from the
$420 million appraisal.
March 20
* County Commissioner Jim Norman's
fingerprints are all over the forced resig-
nation of Tampa Sports Authority Direc-
tor Henry Saavedra. Norman has had
Saavedra in his sights for years because
Saavedra wouldn't acknowledge Norman
as the all-powerful sports czar of Podunk
County politics.
March 27
There appears to be some hope for the
historic Ferlita Macaroni Factory at 1607
22nd Street in Ybor City to be saved from
the wrecking ball, but what form that
rescue takes is still a big question mark.
*The Shriners, who have a hospital
and international headquarters here,
wanted to move their East-West Shrine
Bowl Game to Tampa. The talk was
that the Shrine would pay $100,000 per
year and sign a two-year agreement.
The Shrine and its supporters got a cold
shoulder from Norman and the Sports
Commission....
It seems that he was working on a su-
per secret cloak-and-dagger deal to steal
the Under Armour Senior Bowl from its
58-year home of Mobile, Alabama.
April 3
Orlando officially announced that it


will host the East-West Shrine Game in
2010.
Jim Norman had Tampa pass up that
game in favor of the Senior Bowl, which
he said was in the bag. So far the Senior
Bowl hasn't even asked Tampa to bid for
the game.
* Florida's Chief Financial Officer Alex
Sink was overwhelmed by the support
shown for her candidacy [for CFO] at her
first major local fundraiser held Sunday at
her.Thonotosassa home. She and husband
Bill McBride were expecting 300 people.
Our estimate is 750. Contributions col-
lected at the entrance to their yard was
a staggering $109,000. The total take for
the party was $275,000.
April 10
Tampa City Councilman John Ding-
felder filed to run for County Commission
district 1 in anticipation of it being an
open seat. It is commonly believed that
Commissioner Rose Ferlita, the current
occupant of district 1, will not run for
reelection but instead file to campaign for
mayor of Tampa.
* Hillsborough Community College
continues to trash city rules and impose
its own insipid standards on the Ybor
City Historic District with its student
services project. HCC half-heartedly
admits it must follow zoning but ,it is
ignoring height restrictions. The new
Ybor building is 63' to 74' tall, depend-
ing on where it's measured. The zoning
limit is 45'. HCC didn't ask for a vari-
ance. Why should they when the city
stands frozen like a deer in headlights?
* Mayor Pam Iorio has asked that the
three unions that represent the majority
of city workers to forfeit pay. raises for
one year.
April 17
Both major local newspapers printed
articles exposing Tampa City Council-
man Joseph Caetano's money troubles.
They publicized his bankruptcy and the
closing of his business.... Mr. Caetano
is struggling to deal with the financial
and emotional toll of caring for his wife's
long-term serious illness, which has now
entered its final stages.
In our book, Mr. Caetano deserves
compassion instead of ridicule.
*Does Democratic State Senator Char-
lie Justice know something we don't? He
has announced that he will run against
Republican Congressman Bill Young in
2010. To us, running against Young, who
has won reelection 20 times, is political
suicide even though his district is turning
more Democrat.
April 24
It looks like the St. Petersburg mayor's
race will draw the attention of both the
Republican and Democratic State Par-
ties. Republicans own few mayorships
of large Florida cities and want to keep
their stranglehold on St. Pete. Democrats
feel the city's demographics have changed
enough to finally take it.
* The Greater Tampa Chamber of Com-
merce continues its path towards becom-
ing a true representative of our racially
and gender-diverse business community.
The chamber's current chair, Henry
Gonzalez III, is the organization's second
Hispanic to hold the position. He is a vice
president at the Bank of Tampa. The
person in line for chair in 2011 is Renee
Benton Gilmore, the current secretary/
treasurer. If elected, she will be the first
black woman to lead the chamber. She is
CEO of Tampa Bay Workforce Alliance,
Inc.

f OPinions To Io
By Joe O'Neill


Bean Counting to Title Winning


Nobody seemed pleased -
more like placated - last week
as Pat Bean managed to cling
to the job she has held for the
last six years as Hillsborough
County Administrator. The one
that involves more than 5,000
employees and a $3 billion
budget. The one that increas-
ingly requires sophisticated,
out-of-the-box, regional think-
ing. The one that shouldn't
have to tolerate ham-handed
approaches to budget deficits.
The one that almost nobody
thinks she's good enough at.
But to paraphrase James
Carville, it's about the salary,
stupid.
By any measure except
bond rating, Bean, 64, was
not bargaining from strength.
Not when most commissioners,
among others, question her
priorities, judgment, vision,


initiative, leadership and inno-
vation instincts. But they also
know that the timing couldn't
be worse for taxpayers having
to cough up Bean's annual sal-
ary ($226,000) if she is fired.
(Accrued vacation and sick-
leave time would bring her sev-
erance package to more than
$400,000.) Bean's contract
expires at the end of 2011.
The blatantly begged ques-
tion, even in these turbulent
economic times: Can the com-
missioners afford to keep her?
There's never been a greater
premium put on the skill set
of the County Administrator.
Finally, this was obviously
not about pride - or Bean
would have resigned rather
than face further ridicule. The
Commissioners ultimately
decided to treat her like an in-
tern. By next month, she has to


prepare a list of goals and mea-
surable objectives. She also
had to write: "I will no longer
be Exhibit A for dysfunctional
county government" 100 times
on a government-issue white
board. Her evaluations will be
quarterly - not annually.
In the end, it seemed that
square one was being revisited
when it came to the public's
perception of county govern-
ment. "It's critically important
for them (elected commission-
ers) that they set the vision,"
said Bean. "It's not my job to
set the vision."
If you're looking for a winner
here, it would probably be the
push for county mayor.
- Panther Pride Prevails
Well done, Plant High Pan-
thers. Almost no one thought
the two-time state 4A football"
champs would win a third state
title this year when the school
moved up to 5A. That's the
same rarified class as national
powerhouse Lakeland High
and the top-ranked team in the
country - Ft. Lauderdale's St.
Thomas Aquinas High. But in
the end - at the Florida Citrus
Bowl in Orlando last Friday
night - it was Plant High that
was the last team standing af-
ter its 21-14 win over Manatee
High. Plant is now a bona fide
national heavyweight - and
ranked in the top 10 in three
national prep polls, including
4th by ESPN.
And well done, Plant head
coach Robert Weiner. He
coaches football. He teaches
English literature. He instructs
in life's lessons.
Recall what Weiner inherit-


ed in 2004. The Plant program
had fallen on hard times and
had won one game the year
before. Plus, the grade point
average was nothing to brag
about. Plant has now won
three state championships in
four years - and last year its
GPA was the county's best.
Hardly unimportant is what
happens outside the white
lines and the classroom. Dur-
ing the season, Weiner's play-
ers report to Dad's Stadium
on Saturday for "Panther
Pride Challenger Football."
It's all about helping disabled
kids feel special in their own
"adaptive games." During the
summer, Weiner brings along
a host of upcoming-Panther
players- to the Muscular Dys-
trophy camp he works at as a
counselor. /
To be sure, that iconic Plant
High water tower will soon
proudly proclaim another state
title, but Plant is no less a
champion off the football field.
State Of Happiness
First, the good news.
According to the Centers
for Disease Control and Pre-
vention, Florida ranks as the
third "happiest" state in the
country. Right after Louisiana
and Hawaii and right before
Tennessee and Arizona. New
Jersey, Indiana, Michigan,
Connecticut and New York
were the bottom five and pre-
sumably not at all happy about
it. The criteria that mattered
most: climate, crime rates and
air quality. Apparently, those
residing in sunny, outdoorsy
states are happiest. -
-Now, even better news.
Florida is hardly maxed out.
The Sunshine state can still
get a whole lot happier. Just
imagine how happy Floridians
would be if construction and
tourism weren't down; the tax
system broken, hurricane in-
surance dicey; the state budget
in deficit and unemployment
at 11.5%.
Hall of Defame?
Once again the Rock and
Roll Hall of Fame is preparing
for more inductees. Once again
controversy will be revisited.
It's the nature of halls of fame.
Everybody is not equally wor-
thy. Perhaps asterisks need
to be affixed or shrine space
reduced for the non-iconic.
Otherwise you get, as with
the Rock and Roll Hall of
Fame, membership that will
soon include, for example:


Little Richard, Chuck Berry,
Carl Perkins, Elvis Presley,
Fats Domino, Jerry Lee Lew-
is, the Platters, the Drifters,
the Temptations, the Rolling
Stones and - Iggy Pop and the
Stooges.
For the record, I'd also have
a problem if Cooperstown,
whose enshrinees include Ty
Cobb, Babe Ruth, Joe DiMag-
gio, Ted Williams, Henry Aar-
on, Sandy Koufax and Willie
Mays, were to add Pat Burrell.
Sports Shorts
*FSU football coach Jimbo
Fisher just inked a five-year,
$9 million contract that is
packed with performance in-
centives covering more than a
dozen categories. The bonuses
speak volumes about priorities.
They range from $250,000 if
the underachieving 'Noles, try-
ing to win back a disgruntled
fan base, bring home a BCS
title to $25,000 if the team, still
reeling from an embarrassing
academic scandal, achieves a
75% graduation rate.
*Can't help but feel for
beleaguered USF coach Jim
Leavitt. Chances are one of his
inimitably emotional rants has
been mischaracterized as an
assault on one of his players.
Even the player in question
says Leavitt didn't hit him at
halftime of last month's Louis-
ville game. It's likely that the
AOL Fanhouse.com story will
ultimately be seen as exagger-
ated, context-challenged and
maybe agenda-driven.
But Leavitt still loses. The
incident is another reminder
that his hyper-emotional, often
overbearing manner is wearing
thin. His sideline antics are
as familiar as they are embar-
rassing. And who could not but
wonder if USF, a program that
has acquired an unflattering
reputation for playing with-
out discipline and composure
when the pressure is on in Big
East games, might be chan-
neling its histrionic coach on
the field.
Quoteworthy
* "If the Legislature gives us.
more, we should do something
with it. And we should spend
as much time on the other end
bragging about how we used
it and the outcome we saw."
-Eric Barron, FSU's newly
named president.

Please Play Me!
Ybor City is showing its
cosmopolitan side this fall with
"Pianos in Ybor: Please Play
Me!", a public art exhibit that
is part classical piano, part
scavenger hunt and wholly
Ybor. In an effort sponsored
by The GaYbor Distric Coali-
tion, "Please Play Me!" places
10 pianos, all of which have
been uniquely decorated by
local artists, in secret locations
throughout Ybor City. There
are a few hints (like the three
that are located somewhere in
Centro Ybor), but the rest are
scattered along 7th, 8th and
9th avenues between 15th and
19th streets, and all are wait-
ing patiently to be played by
anyone willing to give it a whirl.
The exhibit will only last
until January 9, 2010, when
the pianos will later be donated
Sto public charities.
Swing Centro
Once a month, the Grand
Ballroom of Centro Asturiano,
1913 N. Nebraska Ave., comes
alive, as all ages gather for
Swing Centro, an exciting night
of swing music and dancing.
Dancers swing & move, shake
& groove to the latest swingin'
sounds, while scenesters so-
cialize in the fabulous, vintage
surroundings or enjoy a drink
at the bar. Vintage attire is
encouraged (though not re-
quired) and many people come
decked out in styles from the
1920s-50s.
Every Swing Centro event
starts with a group swing-
dance lesson from 7 - 8 p.m.,

(Continued from page i)
May 1
Last week, County Commissioner Rose
Ferlita was asked what she would be do-
ing in 2011 during a West Tampa Cham-
ber of Commerce luncheon. Her answer
was the first'time in a public forum that
she admitted her planned candidacy for
mayor ofTampa.
May 8
The word around County Center is
that Alyssa Odgen's lawyers are asking to
settle her sexual harassment case against
Hillsborough County and Commissioner
Kevin White for $200,000. The parties
go to court ordered mediation next week.
We hear rumors that Kevin White
doesn't want the case settled.
*Did you see where USF President
Judy Genshaft didn't shake hands with
USF graduates because of swine flu fears?
* City Councilman Tom Scott became
the first major candidate to officially an-
nounce for the mayor of Tampa race for
March 2011.
May 15
* Hillsborough County public schools'
calendar committee will recommend to
the board to continue with an academic/
non-secular calendar for 2010 and 2011.
Translated, that means Good Friday is a
school day next year.
*Monday's announcement by Tampa
Mayor Pam Iorio that she will not run
for a statewide office was a setback to
the Democratic Party's chances to win
the CFO seat.


* The School District agreed with the
teacher's union that retired teachers can
be rehired, but at far less pay than they
made when they left the district.
May 22
The party's over at Channelside, no
more events at the popular entertainment
site per the fire marshal.
Inspections last year found that Chan-
nelside's evolution since it was first built
has made it unsafe to hold outdoor events.
This revelation will have a major
financial effect on Channelside and will
need some resolution in the future if the
complex is to prosper.
*On Tuesday, HCC's Board of Trust-
ees approved an agreement to settle the
controversy that has surrounded the
design of its student services building on
the Ybor campus. The settlement covers
these major points:
-The height of the project will be re-
duced from four stories to three....
-The current design is...subject to tech-
nical review and approval by city staff....
-In the future, the design of the exte-
rior of the existing building will be under
the review and approval of the Barrio
Latino Commission.
May 29
Channelside Bay Mall LLC, aka
Channelside, is behind in its payments
to reimburse the Tampa Port Authority
for validated parking.
* The Tampa Tribune continues to fade
away. We hear twenty-five more employ-
ees were laid off Wednesday.


*President Barack Obama delivered
a home run in choosing Judge Sonia So-
tomayor as his first appointment to the
Supreme Court.
Her professional background is distin-
guished in breadth and depth....
Her peers have been impressed with
her as a prosecutor, litigator, Federal
District Judge and a U.S. Court of Ap-
peals Judge....
Here's what she says of her heritage:
"Like many other immigrants to this
great land, my parents came because of
poverty and to attempt to find and secure
a better life for themselves and the family
that they hoped to have... The story of that
success is what made me and what makes
me the Latina that I am."
June 5
It was as if an old friend had died
when we realized that Valencia Garden
restaurant had closed....
The Valencia is now added to the list
of lost Tampa treasures, like Las Nove-
dades, Spanish Park, Seabreeze and the
old Malio's. We will miss it.
June 12
Hillsborough County has done a poor
job in increasing the number of Hispanics
employed by the county and the upcoming
layoffs will make things worse. Hispanics
hold 16.74% of classified jobs in the county,
while Blacks hold 20.52% of these jobs.
Compare this to the county's estimated
population of 21.8% hispanics and 15.8%
Black.
June 19
Some on the County Commission are
desperately seeking cuts in parts of the
budget to move more funding to Parks


and Recreation or Animal Control. One
potential target for cuts is the Hills-
borough County Legislative Delegation
Office. The delegation office costs just
under $300,000, which pays for Director
Candace Hundley and an assistant.
*According to the County's website,
there are 59 director positions. Add in
the county administrator and the count
is 60 for the county's top spots. Of these
jobs, Whites hold 80%, Blacks 15% and
Hispanics get a measly 5% of the man-
agement pie.
*We previously wrote that Vin Mar-
chetti and Randy Larson were favorites
for being appointed to the Tampa Sports
Authority by the County Commission.
Both were appointed on Wednesday.
June 26
Supervisor of Elections Phyllis Busan-
sky, 72, passed away on June 22.
*Attorney Glenn Burton passed away
Wednesday night in his car while driving.
His wife miraculously stopped the car
without further incident.
Mr. Burton was likely to be appointed
to the Tampa Sports Authority next week.
* Former County Commissioner Brian
Blair had an altercation with his two sons
that resulted in his arrest for child abuse.

Read about the life and times of
legendary Christmas figure Timo-
thy "Tiny Tim" Cratchit, from his
early battle'with Polio to his rise
and eventual fall as a Wall Street
investment banker in this week's

Y bor City won the
I Best Out of the
Box Award from the
Florida Redevelopment
Association (FRA) for
its "Experiencing Ybor
City" TV commercial.
It was one of 12 top
redevelopment projects
and representatives
www.YborOnline.com recognized this year
Page 20/LA GACETA/Friday, December 25, 2009


by FRA for outstanding
achievements in
community improvement
and included in the 2009
Best Book.

The commercial,
produced by the Ybor City
Development Corporation
(YCDC), was created to
improve communication


Vince Pardo, Veronica Swiatek,


and awareness within the
community. To reduce
costs, the YCDC
maximized community
partnerships, enlisted the
talent of a local artist to
produce original music
for the spot and recruited
volunteers for acting roles,
ultimately saving several
thousands of dollars. The


commercial has positively
improved the image and
perception of Ybor City,
especially in the local
market. The spot visually
showcases the eclectic.
variety of shopping, dining
and entertainment that
Ybor City has to offer while
incorporating a strong
call to action, "Come,
Experience Ybor City."

Each year, FRA honors
redevelopment leaders
and CRAs for exemplary
projects and programs
in Florida. There were
12 awards presented,
including the Roy F.
Kenzie Awards which
honor the best in Florida
redevelopment and the
President's Award that
recognizes the top project
of the year. The recipients
were honored at an
awards dinner during the
FRA Annual Conference
on October 29 in Orlando.

Noche Buena
by Vera Garcia
Children raised in West
Tampa during my childhood
were primarily reared in bi-
lingual households, although
English was not usually spo-
ken in the home. All four of
my grandparents had emi-
grated from Asturias, Spain.
They were very proud of their
Austurian heritage. We lived
on Laurel Street between

filled our senses.
My sisters were much
younger than me, but my
cousin was just a couple years
older. On Roche Buena, we
huddled in the rumble seat of
her daddy's Ford coupe to tell
Christmas secrets while the
adults had mixed drinks be-
fore dinner. The strategy was
that if she told me what my
present was, then I would tell
her what her present was. We

(Fourth of July Caf6), on How-
ard Avenue and Main Street,
which served the best Cuban
coffee in town.
My maternal grandmother
taught me to speak, read and
write in Spanish by listen-
ing to her read La Traduccion
Prensa and La Gaceta news-
papers to me on our front
porch.
I lived with my parents,
two younger sisters, mater-
nal grandparents and my
beloved granduncle, Po. Po
was a bachelor and loved us
all dearly. He was my grand-
father's partner in the cafe.
We called him Po because his
response to most things we
said was, "Po." To this day, we
don't know why he said that
or what it meant.
Po's assigned place at the
supper table was next to mine.
In order to keep me from get-
ting a scolding, he always ate
my vegetables for me when my
mother was not watching. He
also drank my glass of milk
for me when I didn't want it
and Mother was not watching.
He was my hero.
Noche Buena was always
anticipated with much glee.
So as to accommodate the
whole family and our guests,
a long table was set up in el Transactions *
portalito, which was an en- PerSona
closed back porch. Wine was
served with -the meal. Chil- Healthcare *
dren were allowed to partake
in a wine punch made with
very little wine and lots of wa-
ter and sugar. Viv
Vermicelli soup was always
on the menu with roast pork, . D
roasted new potatoes, mashed
potatoes, green beans, Cuban Edwa
bread, baked sweet potatoes R
and flan for dessert, along
with a tray of Spanish turron.
Chestnuts were also roasted
and offered for dessert. Af-
ter we were grown, there was
great joy and jubilation when
I fell in love with the son (y de
pura cepa) of Austurian im- **Board C
migrants, with whom I would + B
share my life. The Noche
Buena menu remained the
same. My younger sister then
became engaged to a young
man of Cuban descent. Black
beans, white rice and yucca
were added to the menu. My 1
youngest sister became en- Mai
gaged to a young man from T:-
South Carolina, and so we
added sweet potato pie to the
menu. All was well with the The hiring of a lawyer is an important decision that s

for a dramatic presentation
of the Christmas story. Our
stage curtain was the French
doors leading to the hallway.
My cousin and I wore towels
on our heads and laid a doll in
a doll bed to portray the baby
Jesus as we commenced to
recite Bible verses and poetry
we had learned at the Congre-
gational Church, which was
down the street. We also sang
Christmas carols in English,
which we insisted our Span-
ish-speaking grandparents
sing with us. They pretended
they were singing by mouthing
words, any words. After each
selection, the audience was
urged to applaud. On one oc-
casion, when our grandfather
was not clapping adequately,
my cousin said to him, "Sopla,
Abuelo, sopla." So he took a
deep breath and blew as hard
as he could to please his first-
born grandchild. Some years
later, when Po bought us a pi-
ano, we learned to play carols
for our presentation. Every-
one was once again expected
to sing, now with accompani-
ment.
I remember rehearsing


putting on many plays at
Hope Mission next door,
h was led by the Rev-
i Corwin and his wife
t. The plays were never

repeated from year to year.
We learned new lines and lyr-
ics each Christmas season.
To this day, I marvel at Mrs.
Corwin's ability to hold our
interest. She was very strict
with us. She and her husband
were missionaries working
in West Tampa. Mr. Corwin
would bribe us with candy
to get us to attend Sunday
school. Mrs. Corwin devel-
oped marvelous flannel board
stories, which she presented
in the neighborhood elemen-
tary school classrooms and
in Sunday School. For a time,
she ran her own school at the
mission, which was a two-sto-


ry wooden building with living
quarters upstairs and a water
trough out front at which the
man who sold ice from a wag-
on watered his horse. Seems
like these amazing mission-
aries inspired us to carry on
in their tradition. I suppose
it's no wonder that I grew up
to produce Cecil B. DeMille
productions on school stages
with my students, a la Vio-
let Corwin. The Corwins had
a grown son who was a mis-
sionary in Africa. I was always
impressed by this fact.

pastor of the Congregational

Christmas Story
by Tony Zappone
Christmas was always
different when I worked for
the Tampa news media. The
Tampa Tribune, WFLA-TV,
WTVT-TV... I was with them
all for nearly 25 years, not at
the same time. For most of
those, I worked at least part of
Christmas Day so other staff-


~'.1
sr,.


ers could be home with their
families... and I really didn't
mind because I got to pick
and choose what my holiday
eating fare would be. I took
time out to see my family as
well.
I learned early on that
Tampa firefighters were the
best cooks in the city. By in-
tense research, study and ex-
perience, I found out which
stations were better, which
shifts had the best cooks and
what their specialties were.
Some made.the best chili (Sta-
tion #14, second shift). Some
did the most fantastic burg-
ers (Station #7 in Seminole
Heights, all shifts!). Each shift
always had several men who
loved to cook, and so on-duty
firefighters pitched in to pur-
chase groceries and then gave
free rein to the designated
cooks to do their thing.

I'd often drove past Sta-
tion #4 on Palm Avenue be-
tween 21st and 22nd Streets
in Ybor City, specifically to
see if anybody was out back
(the 21st Street side) churning
homemade ice cream the old
fashioned way, by hand. They
did it often. When I spotted
the activity I would ease down
a few blocks, get onto 22nd
Street and swing back to the
station. I'd walk in the door as
if to be on an unscheduled so-
cial visit fully knowing I'd be
invited to the table for the best
homemade ice cream in town.
Just thinking about that awe-
some vanilla taste kept me go-
ing!
My favorite holiday stake-
out was across town at Sta-
tion 13, Church and Neptune.
All three shifts had grand
-:.-


cooks and, at - Christmas,
many members of other shifts
brought their families and
gathered at the station for
a group affair. Some dishes
would be cooked in-house,
others brought covered-dish
style by the families. They
moved the trucks outside and
put down portable tables for
the Christmas feast.
I would shoot film or tape
of the Christmas gathering
and, in return, get as much
to eat as I could take in. De-
pending on my dietary status
at the time, I'd either load up
right there, take some to go,
eat moderately or just do a
light dinner. It was always ter-
rific... and I always told them
they were the best!
The second shift at Station
8 in West Tampa was also a
favorite Christmas stop. They

loved getting on television and
I loved their holiday cooking.
It was against the policy of
both the newspaper and the
television stations to accept
gratuities in return for news
stories, but I figured if the
goods were well digested there
could be no evidence.
I rotated between, maybe,
five or six stations... most hol-
idays... and in between. I told
every one of their cooks they
were the best and they were
always happy to have me back
until one day a district chief,
whose job it was to check in
on different stations, came to
visit station 14 and happened
to mention that I had told the
cooks at two other stations in
the area they were the best.
There were times when I vis-
ited two or three stations, re-
cording the activities at each
and partaking of the very best
each had to offer.
One Christmas, in the mid
70s, a woman with four small
children stopped by Station
#4 in Ybor. They were not well
dressed, did not appear to be
having a particularly delight-
ful Yule and seemed very in-
terested in what we were do-
ing, eating. The shift captain
walked outside to get their
story. Fact was, they lived not
too far away and were going
through severe hardships at
the time. The captain made a
place for them inside the sta-
tion and invited all to Christ-
mas Dinner, right on the spot.
Afterwards, a collection was
taken up in the firehouse to
help the family. Christmas
stories don't get much better
than that. I never met a fire-
man who didn't have a huge
heart.
Perhaps when the news
gets out, there will be more
firehouse visitors on Christ-
mas... or any other lunch or
dinner time. Tampa firefight-
ers are certainly the very best
at what they do, saving lives
and property. What they don't
want you to find out. is that
they cook and eat the best.
If you ever have the unfortu-
nate need to report a fire, ask
the dispatcher to have one of
the engines bring along some
homemade ice cream, chili or
fried chicken... whatever's on
hand. At least it's worth a try.
I've always figured if I was
disposed to starting my own
restaurant, or chain of them, I
would call it "The Fire House."

Remembering
Christmas
by Russ Patterson
This will be a very differ-
ent Christmas for me. It will
be my first Christmas without
my father. He died last Janu-
ary after a long and success-
ful life. Daddy wasn't home
every year on Christmas Day
- he went to sea for a living.
But he and Mom always made
sure his presence was known.
When he was home during
some part of our Christmas


break, this is how Mom and
Dad made Christmas even
better than what most other
kids had: they had "Little
Santa Claus" come visit us
when Dad wasn't home on
Christmas day. This gave me,
my brother and sister two
Christmases. Not a bad deal
for a kid. For some reason,
we didn't catch on about the
connection between Dad and
Little Santa. Even better, be-
cause Mom and Dad never
told us the "truth" about San-
ta - Santa still visits whenever
any of the children or grand-
children are home, no matter
our ages!
Whether Dad was home or
not, my grandmother would
spend the night with us, of-
ten working to get my broth-
er and me to go to bed early.
We weren't too argumentative
- we figured out that Santa
would come after we went to
sleep. We would wake up re-
ally early - like 2:00 in the
morning - and sneak into the
living room. Sometimes Santa
had already come and some-
time he hadn't. When he had,
we would go and wake up my
little sister, and all three of us
would head to Mom and Dad's
bedroom and wake them up
with "Santa's come!" Mom and
Grandma would make coffee
for themselves, and the kids
would open all the presents.
In addition to the presents un-
der the tree, we all had stock-
ings. These were filled with
small toys, nuts and a box of
chocolate-covered cherries.
We filled up on these snacks
while we played with our toys.
When I was in junior high
school, I got up even earlier
and caught "Santa" in the
act. It was Mom. She let me
help put out the gifts, but she
was sly enough to not let on
that there were a few extra
gifts for me. So when I woke
up again a few hours later,
I found a.unicycle and a few
other things under the tree for
me. Mom was very good about
keeping Santa's gifts a secret.
Most of the time. One year, on
Christmas Eve afternoon, my
brother and I (I was the lead
culprit in this) found many of
the presents under Mom. and
Dad's bed. Mom was so an-
noyed with us- that she sent
us over to the theater where
we watched a Jerry Lewis
movie. The next morning, we
--still had a few surprises for us
under the tree.
Christmas has always been
a big deal for my mother. She
loved getting bargains on
Christmas Eve, and instilled
this in us when we were chil-
dren. Sometimes we would
wait until that last minute to
find a present. Once we wait-
ed way too long, so my brother
and I found a very nice gar-
bage pail at Western Auto and
that was our gift to Mom. That
trash container lasted until
Mom and Dad moved prob-
ably 15 years later.
While I won't be home with


her this Christmas, she will
have my brother and sister
and their families with her. I
was fortunate enough to be
home for Thanksgiving and
help take all the decorations
out of the attic and help put
them up. I think this may be
the last Christmas Mom will
go all out with decorations.
She says she is giving them
to my nephew, who has just
bought a nice big house. I
know he and his wife will con-
tinue our family Christmas
traditions.

My Holiday Memories
by Frances Perrone
I enjoy a very special
Tampa heritage and have
very unique memories of
the Christmas holidays. My
grandfather, Louis Perrone,
opened Housewife Bake Shop
at the corner of Sligh and Ar-
menia avenues in 1959. He
passed the business on to my
father and mother, Anthony
and Dana Perrone, in the
mid 1970s. The bakery busi-
ness is in my father's blood
as, for most of her life, my
grandmother, Frances Alessi

Perrone, worked and lived in
the Alessi Bakery opened by
my great grandfather, Nicola
Alessi.
The Christmas season is
the busiest time of year for
bakeries. Every Christmas,
the Perrone and Alessi fami-
lies gather to celebrate their
family and the joyous holiday.
On Christmas Eve, the family
pulls together to provide extra
help at Housewife Bake Shop.
The bakery is always bustling
with customers retrieving
their orders of scacciata, fig
rings, gingerbread men and
pignolata. '
Though the bakery con-
tinues on with many of these
traditions, one of my favorite
memories was of my grandfa-
ther, Louis Perrrone, arriving
at the bakery to prepare the
Christmas fish. My grand-
mother, Frances Alessi Per-
rone, would prepare the sofri-
to to accompany the snapper.
My father or grandfather
would pick up the snapper
from Matassini fish market.
My grandfather would arrive
mid-day amongst the baking
of bread, filling of cannoli and
catering preparations. He
would carefully prepare the'
fish for our Christmas Eve cel-
ebration. After the busy day's
work, the Perrone and Alessi
families would gather for a
late evening celebration at my
parents' home. A wonderful
celebration of our faith, our
family and the beautiful tra-
ditions have been enjoyed for
generations. The annual fami-
ly celebration continues at the
home of my cousin, Rosalie
Ciaccio Apostoleres and Nick
Apostoleres. Since my grand-


father's passing in 1993, the
day has never been quite the
same.
Our Christmas Party
by Peggie Schmechel
December 11th was our
Christmas party. I wasn't
much in the holiday spirit
that early in the month, but it
was the only Friday we could
manage it.
The day got started as
usual with everything going
wrong: time sheets not com-
plete, people calling in with
problems, food to be picked
up, checks to make. All those
"have-to" things to complete
before noon. And just when I
was ready to scream... Donna
Parrino came by early to say
. hello before running off to her
meeting. She is always so up-
beat. It gave me a lift, and I
started feeling better.
Then all the kids came in
and the Christmas party was
on its way. We unloaded all
the "Secret Santa" presents,
"and food out of the cars. All
of a sudden it was noon and
our friends arrived. Our close
friends we see often and our
faraway friends we see once
in a while. I had such a good
time. It was akin to a large
family where you greet your
close, relatives, then distant
cousins. At my age, all these
people are very important to
me. The hugs were so warm
and welcomed, along with all
the memories reviewed that
you often., don't take the time
to think about through the
year.
Our parties aren't fancy,
just good food and friends.
But they are special to me. I
am so fortunate to live and


work with my kids. God has
blessed me with a good life.
I get to work with people
who care for me and children
who respect and love me. I get
up early to come to work when
I would have slept in, but then
what? Naps at home are im-
possible. Just when I get to
sleep, someone comes in with
a request, but I love it.
I wish all our readers and
our extended family a wonder-
ful holiday and a prosperous
new year. If 2009 wasn't good
to you, I pray 2010 will be bet-
ter. If we haven't seen you for
a while, come by and say hel-
lo. Ill be here. ,

Evolving Traditions in
a Changing Family
by Megan Allen, 2010 FL
Department of Education/
Macy's Teacher of the Year
Many things in life change,
but I love how there are com-
mon threads that stay the
same. One of the constants in
my life is tradition, endearing-
ly drawing me closer to family
and friends. I love the evolu-
tion of traditions that has
blossomed through the years.
Though people may enter and
exit our lives, the traditions
help us hold them near and
grow stronger together, -as a
family.
Ill begin my journey as I
reminisce about traditions
from Christmas past. My
mother loved Christmas Eve.
She also loved to dress my
sister and me in the "same
clothes (I should probably still
be in therapy for this). Ev-
ery Christmas Eve, my sister
and I would receive matching
Christmas pajamas and orna-
ments to adorn the tree. This

tradition carried on for many
years, probably much longer
than it should have! I received
my last pair (complete with
footies) soon after my twenty-
third birthday, after my moth-
er had passed away and my
father stepped up bravely into
the role. At that point I think


we all agreed that this beauti-
ful tradition should be put on
hold until the next generation
entered the picture. I think
it was the drop-seat britches
that did it! Someday in Christ-
mas future it will be time to
pass on the timeless tradition

side. The pickle contest! This
actually is a German tradition
- I'm not sure how my moth-
er caught onto it. If I had to
guess, she liked the fact that
there is a competition involv-
ing a pickled fruit. Sounds
like fun, right?
Every year, a little elf takes
a special "pickle" ornament
and hides it on the tree. All
the "kids" (okay, okay... big
kids, in our case) line up in
the dining room, eyes bolt-
ing up and down, searching
for the camouflaged pickle. At
Dad's cue, we race to the tree
in a pile of flying elbows and
tinsel.-To help paint a picture,
this resembles a mix between
a rugby scrum and dueling
tornadoes. The prize: opening
the first present. But the true
prize is the bragging rights
that the pickle finder has for
the next 12 months. Classy
and priceless!
When I got married four
years ago, my husband
brought new traditions to my
family. There's one in par-
ticular that I love and think
says a lot about his character
and who he is as a person. I
admire so many qualities in
him, but my favorites are his
thoughtfulness and compas-
sion.
Our first Christmas togeth-
er, we were on a really tight
budget. Miko and I were liv-
ing in New Jersey, and I was
working three jobs to make
ends meet. We decided to be
practical and to focus on in-
tangible gifts for Christmas.
His present to me was a won-
derful dinner, prepared to-
gether. We dusted off our best
plates and glasses, filled our
dining room with candles,
and our little 900 square foot
apartment turned into a five-
star restaurant. Every year we
make sure to carve out a night
in our busy schedules for just
the two of us. We cook togeth-
er, laugh and talk, dust off
our china, and celebrate the


grew by one, her husband,
Tom, has added one of my
favorite new traditions to our
family. Crazy hat Bingo! On
Christmas Eve, we all adorn
the funkiest hats we can pos-
sibly find. Anyone who knows
me can vouch that I can pro-
vide some crazy head toppers
(cowgirl pigtails, Christmas
trees, a pizza hat, a birthday
cake hat), so I'm always glad
to chip in and help out! Then
the Bingo commences. The
winner can choose from an ar-
ray of wrapped prizes - some
fabulous, some " not-so-hot.
Let's just say that someone
this year may end up with
some candied reindeer pooh,
a kazoo, or a can of anchovies.
Shhhh... don't tell!
However my life may
change, I hold these tradi-
tions, both new and old, close
to my heart. They are memo-
ries of the past and promises
of the future. They are the lit-
tle things that make me who'
I am. They are pieces of my
amazing, changing family.

cember 1st. They started this
tradition in the '50s, so I was
born in to it, and I witnessed
20 years of Christmases be-
fore they passed on. I must
say, I had some special child-
hood and teenage Christmas-
es, and I miss them so. May
the LEEMANS rest in peace.

Christmas through the
Looking Glass
by Jerry Noland
Growing ,up in Tampa
and around Ybor City was
so much fun because, even
though Hillsborough County
(and Tampa) was the third
largest county in Florida - re-
member those old auto tags
that had a 3 for Hillsborough
County, a 2 for Duval and 1
for Dade? - it still felt as if we
were living in a small town.
You could stand on the street
corner outside of Maas Broth-
ers at Christmastime and
see just about everyone you
knew, especially if you were


a teenager. Plant, Jefferson,
and Hillsborough were the
three all-white public schools
that made up the Tampa area,
and we knew each other from
sports, countywide teen clubs
and joint functions. So, it was
not uncommon to see kids
from the other schools, adult
friends of your family, teach-
ers, neighbors and everyone
in between shopping down-
town during the weeks before
Christmas.
For several Christmases
when I was a young teen as
well as a college student at the
University of Tampa, I worked
downtown during the Christ-
mas Season. Haber's, Maas
Brothers and O'Falk's were
three of the department stores
that employed me over several
years.
I don't know how I got a
job while I was still in high
school, but I did. I folded
merchandise, directed people
to the correct floor, wrapped
gifts and, as a college student,


I actually got to sell merchan-
dise. I especially loved work-
ing at Haber's because it was
a smaller store, and the own-
ers gave me more responsibil-
ity. I remember looking into
the windows of Wolf Brothers
at Christmastime and dream-
ing that some day I might be
able to purchase something
from this store, which seemed
beyond anything I could ever
hope to achieve. Well, as a
young student at the Uni-
versity of Tampa, I bought a
pair of red leather, sling-back
high heels on sale, and I have
never forgotten those shoes! A
Christmas dream that really
did come true.
Shopping' at' the mall just
doesn't do it -for me. The
crowded streets of downtown
Tampa in my youth seem
more appropriate for Christ-
mas shopping than the busy,
nondescript malls of today.
Walking past all those down-
town stores, their windows
decorated with eye-popping,

wonder-filled displays - sbme
were even mechanical - hear-
ing the Salvation Army bells
ringing, running into people
you knew, hearing the sounds
of traffic, streetcars at one
time - well, that's Christmas
to me.
Today, I can walk through
the Brandon mall, never see-
ing a single person I know -
all total strangers - hurrying
to hunt down the best bar-
gain, get that last-minute gift,
dragging their children along
and dressed as if they are
on their way to the gym. Re-
member when people dressed
up to go "downtown"? We all
shopped within a very small
amount of space. O'Falks on
one corner, Wolf Brothers on
another, Maas Brothers on
another, Haber's across the
street - Mangels, Lerners,
all in a row... Behind Maas
Brothers was Viola Todd's -
but who could afford to shop
there? Not very far to go, just
a few city blocks, and Frank-
lin Street seemed to be the
entire world. Holiday movies
at the Tampa Theatre and,
across the street, the Florida
Theatre. Down a few blocks,
The State and, behind Maas
Brothers, The Palace. A won-


derland of colored lights, dec-
orated stores, busy people -
but not too busy to linger and
chat with friends.
I truly miss those "good
ole days," when life seemed
less stressful, less hectic and
people didn't camp out at Best
Buy two days before Thanks-
giving just to get the cheap-
est bargain on a TV. And
some people actually eat their
Thanksgiving dinner there -
what's that all about?
For some reason, my mem-
ory tells me we had more days
of colder weather then - it
never seemed this hot to me
at Christmas time... Am I just
hallucinating?
One of the best Christmas
presents I ever received as a
young girl was a pair of jodh-
purs. I didn't own a horse, did
not know how to ride, didn't
have access to a horse - and
had no hope in, you know,
ever getting to ride one. Prob-
ably, I had seen a movie with
a girl wearing jodhpurs, so my
mother bought me a pair -
where she found them I would
never know, but I wore them
almost every day - but not
to school, because girls were
not allowed to wear pants to

Christmas Dreams
by Jane Castor
My favorite Christmas
growing up was the year I got


and assorted relatives. This is
a tradition that I still carry on
in my home to help create last-
ing Christmas memories. As
we excitedly opened our gifts
that morning, as if on cue, I
heard a pony whiney again. I
turned to my Dad, who was
all smiles, and he said, "Why
don't you go see where that
noise came from?" The house
emptied in a flash, as we all
ran outside to find a beautiful
Shetland pony.
Although the best Christ-
mas of my young life, I am
sure it was not among the
best for that poor pony. Ev-
ery kid in the neighborhood
rode him on that Christmas


:bf4 -"


and legs flailed comically in
the air. Our family still talks
about that day. You could say
it was the gift that kept on giv-
ing!
Home for Christmas
by Gene Siudut
I will be traveling home to
New Jersey to spend Christ-
mas with my loved ones.
I've lived in Tampa for over
10 years, but I still think of
Glassboro, New Jersey as
home. I can't go there without
remembering one of the tradi-
tions in our house, which was
to go to church on Christmas
morning after all the presents
were opened. St. Bridget's
Catholic Church always had a
Christmas morning mass, but
as my siblings and I got older,
we started waking up later
-and later on Christmas morn-
ing, and going to church that
morning eventually went by
the wayside. Part of the rea-
son I began waking up later
and later was that I was an
alter boy. Living around the
corner from the church put
pressure on me to serve dur-
ing the midnight Christmas
mass. I never thought this


was fun, but I was obligated
due to proximity.
There was never really a
benefit to serving during the
midnight mass save for the
fact that you would get fed
when it was over. Funerals
and weddings were alter boy
gold. I always made great tips
during funerals and wed-
dings, but midnight mass
was the equivalent of winning
prize tickets at the boardwalk.
It takes a lot of time and en-
ergy, you feel like you may


have actually accomplished
something with all the tickets
you win and then the shatter-
ing blow comes when you re-
alize that all 100 prize tickets
buy you are a banana comb
and some Fiddle Faddle. One
particular year I wasn't feeling
very well and called to see if it
would be possible to call-out,
but I was made to feel like I
would ruin Christmas for
all God-fearing Catholics if I

a pony. It was 1967 and I was
eight years old. My family had
very little money, so there is
no telling how my dad came
through with my dream gift. I
awoke early Christmas morn-
ing to the sound of a pony's
whiney. The hour was too
early, even for my brothers,
sisters and myself to try and-
roust our parents from bed. I
ran to my brothers' room and
woke them. My older brother
convinced me that I had lost
my mind and was just dream-
ing. Feeling rather dejected,
I went back to bed and fell
asleep.
Our house was always the
center of activity. As was typi-
cal of most Christmas morn-
ings, the house was full of the
five Castor kids, my parents


day. I believe my dad final-
ly stepped in and saved the
pony from exhaustion. Now,
I would like to say all ended
well, but it turns out- the po-
ny's name was Fury. Suffice it
to say, the name was fitting,
as he threw me every chance
he got. I never told my dad for
fear he would not allow me
to ride. One day my dad saw
me being unceremoniously
thrown from the pony and de-
cided to teach him a lesson. In
the end, it was the pony that
taught my dad a lesson. The
whole family watched as Dad,
who was 6'2", big and strong,
jumped on the pony. The pony
took off galloping through the
woods, trying to brush my
dad off on every tree branch it
could find, as my dad's arms

wasn't there. I decided I would
take a nap until I needed to
-get ready and, because of my
nauseated stomach, I didn't
feel much like eating. When I
woke up I still didn't feel great,
but I was hungry. I went to
the fridge and all I could find
that I thought would be pal-
atable were several cut-up
blocks of cheese. I needed
something to wash it down
with, so I grabbed the egg-
nog thinking it would coat my
stomach. (I never said I was a
smart kid.) After my snack, I
walked around the block and
got dressed for mass.
St. Bridget's mass was al-
ways very somber. People were
quiet and attentive. I always
thought it was out of respect.
I've come to realize that it was
just too late at night for people
to think straight. I performed
my duties as an alter boy that
morning, but something still
didn't feel right internally and
I began to feel a little worse.
About three quarters through
the mass, my stomach was
a bubbling cauldron, and I
needed to make a jail break
or I would definitely, spoil
Christmas morning for the
parish. I quietly - but notice-
ably - walked to the back of
the church holding my mouth


and proceeded through the
doors to the basement of the
church. I then ran to the
bathroom and gave back all
the cheese and eggnog that
had plagued me for the dura-
tion of the mass. I was sure
that the whole congregation
heard my retching, but when
the mass let out and the pa-
rishioners came downstairs to
the basement for a little post-
midnight snack, I was greeted
as if nothing had happened.
The priest, Monsignor Tracy,
had just assumed that I need-
ed to relieve myself and was
just overtired. He came over to
me with a plate of sustenance
to give me energy for the walk
home... a nice big plate of
cheese and a glass of eggnog.
Merry Christmas

My First Christmas
with the Buckhorns
by Dr. Catherine Lynch,
Interim Director, Division of
General Obstetrics and Gyne-
cology at USF
In December of 1998, Bob
Buckhorn, after almost two
years of dating, invited me
to join him at his mother's
home for Christmas. I only
had four days off so we were
flying up together, but he was
flying back a few days after
me to spend more time with


his brothers. In
making the plans,
Bob kept stating
that we would ex-
change our gifts
when he returned
so that we wouldn't
have to lug things
back and forth to
Virginia.
As could only
be typical for the
stress of holiday -
travel compound-
ed by spending
Christmas with
the boyfriend's . '
family, when I got .:- -
over to his house
to pick him up
and then head to ,.,
the airport, my f
car wouldn't re-
start. Bob sud- f
denly got a little .
panicky as he re-
alized we would
need to take his
car. We really
didn't have any
time to spare for him to ge
things out of the car, and fi
nally he threw a towel ove
whatever was in the back an(
made me promise not to lool
in the back of the car, espe
cially since I was now going to
have to use his car when I go
back to Tampa.


Dr. Catherine Lynch


What I thought was for Bob's
dog, Larkin.
The next day, however I
had to return to Tampa, and
a few days later Bob followed.
- When he came over to my
house he asked if I was ready
to exchange gifts. After receiv-
ing a yes from me he told me
to close my eyes, went back
out into the garage and then
re-entered. Before he had me
open my eyes, he said, "I know
you will never let me name a
son Seamus, so here is your
boy Seamus." When I opened
my eyes there was the most
-adorable husky puppy with a
big red bow.
Seamus has been featured
on our Christmas card for the
first several years of our fam-
ily. Unfortunately, when the
- second dog was added along
with two children, even with
the best of. photographers
, trying to get everyone look-
' ing in one .direction became
" ... too much of a challenge. It is
hard to believe that Seamus is


Former Tampa City Councilman Bob Buckhorn with
Seamus as a puppy


Eldest daughter Grace Buckhorn's first Christmas and
big brother Seamus as a fully grown Siberian husky


We had a lovely time at his
mom's house and I enjoyed
learning their family Christ-
mas tradition. They jokingly
had us line up by age, young-
est to oldest, before going
out to the tree to see if San-
ta had come. We had a great
Christmas dinner and fellow-
ship, and I was made to feel
very welcome at his family's
home. His mom even gave me
a stuffed Siberian husky for


now eleven and has been an
excellent big brother to Grace,
Colleen and the humane soci-
ety special, Rory. This year's
letter to Santa from the girls
has a request for a puppy.
We have told the girls that we
don't think that Santa brings
puppies into houses that al-
ready have dogs - but you
never know what might show
up with a big red bow under
the tree.

HAIRTII YIT TAUZ3PA


by Caesar Gonzmart
In late October 1891, the
publisher of a New York City
newspaper received a letter
requesting him to facilitate
extending an invitation to a
Cuban emigre who advocated
the independence of the is-
land from Spain.
The proposed intermediary
was Enrique Trujillo y Carde-
nas, publisher of El Porvenir, a
newspaper opposing Spanish
rule of Cuba. The individual
for whom the invitation was
intended was a friend of the
publisher by the name of Jose
Marti.
Marti was well-known in
the New York 6migr6 commu-
nity and esteemed for his liter-
ary talent. He was recognized
for his considerable skills as
a writer, journalist, poet and
social commentator. His work
as the consular representa-
tive of some South American
countries added to his pres-
tige. The Spanish government
considered him a dangerous
revolutionary.
He had opposed colonial
rule in Cuba since the age
of 16, when he was arrested
and condemned to six years at
hard labor for publishing se-
ditious materials against the
Spanish government. After his
release, he was deported from
Cuba and exiled to Spain on
two separate occasions. Marti
had lived outside of Cuba for
most of his life, and had re-
sided in New York City since
1881.
Enrique Trujillo arrived in
New York in 1880 after being
deported from Cuba to Spain
for his anti-colonial views.
He subsequently joined a
separatist committee chaired
by Jose Marti, the .purpose
of which was to support an
armed uprising that had been
launched in Cuba the previ-
ous year.
In 1885, Trujillo started a
newspaper named El Avisa-
dor Cubafto. The pro-inde-
pendence journal provided
information about social and
political issues affecting the
Cuban emigr6 population.
The paper ceased publication
a year later, and was succeed-
ed by El Avisador Hispano-
Americano, which appeared
until 1890. That year, Trujillo
resigned from the paper and
began to publish El Porvenir.
Most of the 6migr6s who
read these Spanish-language
newspapers were part of the


growing Cuban community
that had settled in the United
States since the founding of
the country. They had emi-
grated to find employment,
conduct business, attend
school or avoid persecution
for their political views. They
resided for the most part in
New York, Philadelphia, New
Orleans, Key West and Tam-
pa.
Carbonell
The invitation to Jose Marti
came from Ndstor Leonelo
Carbonell Figueroa, a promi-
nent Cuban resident of Tam-
pa who aspired for the inde-
pendence of the island.
Carbonell had extended the
invitation to Marti with the
hope that he would be avail-
able to serve as guest speaker
at a fundraising event for the
benefit of the Sociedad Politica
Cubana "Ignacio Agramonte"
(Cuban Political Society "Ig-
nacio Agramonte"). The or-
ganization was named after
a deceased Cuban separat-
ist leader and was commonly
known as the Club Ignacio
Agramonte.
N6stor Carbonell had
supported the Cuban inde-
pendence movement since
1869 when he took up arms
against Spain a year after the
start of a conflict known as
the Guerra de los Diez Afros or
Ten Years' War, which lasted
until 1878.
In 1875, after six years of
continuous combat against
Spanish troops and lacking
the resources to continue in
the field, Carbonell and his
small band of insurgents were
forced to parley with the local
army commander and sur-
render. Carbonell was subse-
quently arrested and charged
with espionage and abetting
the antigovernment separat-
ist forces, and sentenced to
death for his offense against
Spain.
Years later, Carbonell ac-
knowledged that, not long af-
ter his surrender, he had been
forced to defend his family
and physically destroy a local
brigand named Brizuela. The
latter had apparently been
associated with the counter-
insurgency force mobilized by
Spain against the separatists.
Elements of the counterinsur-
gency force, then known as
guerilleros or guerillas, were
displeased with Brizuela's
death and his former guerrilla
associates influenced the ar-

rest of Nestor Carbonell.
While awaiting execution,
Carbonell learned of the death
of his wife and several of his
children during an epidemic..
Among the surviving children
was the eldest, Eligio de Je-


View of Key West, 1884
sus, who would later play a
role in the Cuban separatist
movement in Tampa.
. Carbonell escaped from
his confinement while being
transferred to a prison in Ha-
vana, and began an incognito


life in the city. In late 1878,
he remarried, and his second
wife, Eloisa Rivero Brito, bore
him several children, some
of whom would be born in
Tampa. One of them, Miguel

Carbonell y Rivero, eventu-
ally became a distinguished
journalist and diplomat in
Cuba after the country gained
its independence.
Key West
In 1879, Nestor Carbonell
departed Cuba and resided for
a short period in Haiti. During


his time in Haiti, he collabo-
rated with Antonio Maceo, an
acclaimed former insurgent
officer in the Ten Years' War.
Maceo, a highly esteemed fig-
ure in Cuban history, was at-
tempting to secure funds to
arm a military expedition to
support an incipient upris-
ing in Cuba. The insurrection


would eventually be known
in Cuban historiography as
the Guerra Chiquita, or Small

duction center with a popula-
tion of nearly 18,000 people.
The town had grown
steadily since the beginning
of the Ten Years' War in 1868,
and had become a destination
point for some of the emigres
leaving Cuba for the United
States. Many of these found
employment in the cigar fac-
tories that operated in Key
West.
Several factors attracted


tivism. These coincided. or
diverged depending on the
particular issue. Both were
contentious and generated
patriotic enthusiasm, labor
unrest and social tensions
within the community.
Key West separatist lead-
ers gave impulse to the Cu-
ban independence movement
through a network of autono-
mous clubs that raised funds
to aid separatists who sought


cigar manufacturers to Key
West. Among them were its
proximity to Cuba, favorable
climate, the ready supply of
Cuban leaf tobacco, the avail-
ability of skilled cigar workers
and favorable U.S. import tar-
iffs on tobacco.
By, 1884, about 2,800 per-
sons were employed in 91
cigar factories. The workers
included former Cuban com-
batants in the Ten Years' War
and separatist sympathiz-
ers who supported the inde-
pendence movement against
Spain. Some workers also
espoused labor philosophies
that advocated universal
workers' rights and social re-
form.
Two distinct forces were at
play in Key West when Car-
bonell arrived: Cuban sepa-
ratism and labor union ac-


to ignite popular uprisings
and overthrow colonial rule
in Cuba. Among the activities
supported by the clubs were
the armed expeditions respec-
tively led by Carlos Aguero
(1884) and Ramon Bonachea
(1885), and an ill-fated plan
conceived by the former in-
surgent generals Maximo Go-
mez and Antonio Maceo dur-
ing 1884-1886.
As labor became better or-
ganized, unions became more
insistent in their demands
for higher wages and better
working conditions. A ruin-
ous strike in 1885 embittered
labor-management relations,
and a devastating fire in 1886
made the continuance of
business in Key West difficult
for some cigar manufacturers.
Among those affected was

A New York advertisement for Ybor & Manrara cigars


Ybor found Tampa to be
a friendly community with a
hospitable board of trade that
offered to underwrite some of
his business expenses. Equal-
ly, if not more important, the
town was -served by a new
railroad, was endowed with
an abundant supply of water
and there was no labor strife
-- important amenities for the
production and distribution of
cigars that Key West lacked.
Ybor purchased property
and built a frame building for
his cigar factory and nearby
housing for his workers. A
short time later, he completed
a brick structure and trans-
ferred production to the new
building. Ybor and his part-
ner, Eduardo Manrara, con-
tinued to acquire and develop
property in the adjacent area
and the new industrial com-
munity took the name of Ybor
City.
A New Home in Tampa
Nestor Carbonell relocat-
ed to Tampa with his ,family
in 1889, about the time Key
West experienced another la-
bor strike and only a few years
after the first workers were
employed at the V. Martinez
Ybor and Co. cigar factory. He
accomplished his relocation
with the assistance of Come-


miento de Libras y Periodicos
(Literary Gallery - An Estab-
lishment of Books and News-
papers). The small bookstore
served as a source of reading
materials and news for the
6migr6 residents of Ybor City.
Many of the social and po-
litical institutions that Car-
bonell found in Ybor City were
similar to those he had left
behind in Key West. These
were often influenced by in-
dividuals who sought the in-
dependence of Cuba or strove
to improve working conditions
for cigar workers or attempted
to attain both goal.
In 1887, labor unrest and
clashes between competing
labor unions resulted in a
strike, and labor issues would
affect the community in the
future. About a year later, Ra-
mon Rivero y Rivero, a noted
separatist leader and labor
advocate, helped to organize
La Liga Patriotica Cubana
(The Cuban Patriotic League),
a pro-independence group of
some prominence.
Carbonell himself became
a member of the Club Revolu-
cionario (Revolutionary Club),
a short-lived separatist group
presided by Juan Arnao and
whose members included Vi-

ish anarchists - celebrated an
event in Ybor City commemo-
rating the Haymarket incident
of 1886 and shouted slogans
that offended a number of Cu-
ban separatists. Days later,
a counter-protest was orga-
nized by a group of separatist
sympathizers that included
Eligio Carbonell, and from
that occurrence consequent-
ly emerged the organization
of the Club Ignacio Agramon-
te.
The club was organized
in late May 1891 and pre-
sided by N6stor Carbonell.
The other officers and direc-
tors were Jose B. Rojas, Eligio
Carbonell, Andres Sanchez
Iznaga, Jose Gomez Santoyo,
Ramon E. Cabrera, Vicente
Martin Triana, Francisco Lu-
friu, Gonzalo Perez de Guz-
man, Francisco Sanchez,
Manuel Aguero and Bruno
Roig. Individual membership
dues were set at ten cents per
week.
Perhaps by coincidence,
the club bore a name simi-
lar to another "Club Ignacio
Agramonte" that had existed
in New York City in 1883 and
whose president and secretary
had respectively been Juan
Arnao and Martin Morua Del-
gado. The latter was a well-
know author, journalist and
political commentator who,
in future years, would reside
in Tampa and later serve as
president of the post-indepen-
dence Cuban Senate.
At the time the Club Igna-

cio Agramonte was formed
in Tampa, Vicente Martinez
Ybor had vacated the original
frame cigar factory building
located on the north side of
7th Avenue between 13th and
14th streets and transferred
production to the newer brick
structure situated one block
north between 8th and 9th
avenues, both in Ybor City.
After relocating, Martinez
Ybor made the older two-story
building available to the 6mi-
gr6 community, and the sec-
ond floor was converted into a
social hall with a stage. Con-
temporary maps identify the
building as the "Teatro Ybor"
(Ybor Theater) and indicate
tenant usage of the building.
Demand for the hall grew,
and its access began to be dis-
puted by community groups.
In early 1890, Ramon Rivero
y Rivero, then president of the ,
Liga Patriotica Cubana, called
attention to the situation and
met with representatives from
local organizations to find a
solution to the issue.
With leadership from Rive-
ro y Rivero, the 6migr6s cre-.
ated a new entity named the
Liceo Cubano - Sociedad Artis-
tica Literaria (Cuban Lyceum -
Artistic Literary Society), and
started an evening school with
Nestor Leonelo Carbonell as
the director. The new school
held classes in the building
and the association spon-.
sored cultural events and pro-
vided access to the hall.

ganizations in Ybor City were
Liga Patriotica, the Club Ig-
nacio Agramonte and Liceo
Cubano. There were other as-
sociations as well, including
labor, fraternal and cultural
groupings with diverse, often
related and sometimes con-
flicting goals.
Membership occasionally
overlapped and some indi-
viduals held. concurrent or
successive positions of re-
sponsibility in more than one
organization. Among those
was Eligio Carbonell, who
served as secretary of the
Club Ignacio Agramonte and
later held a similar position in
the Liceo Cubano. His father,
Nestor Carbonell, a one-time
secretary of the Club Revolu-
cionario was later president of
the Club Ignacio Agramonte.
Irrespective of their in-
tended goals, the 6migr6 or-
ganizations required funds
to carry out their programs.
Income from membership
dues was often supplemented
by outside contributions and
revenue from fundraising ac-
tivities, including the com-
memoration of historic events.
Among those most com-
monly evoked were the annu-
al remembrances of October
10,1868 and November 27,
1871. The first date recalled
the commencement of the Ten
Years' War and was generally
celebrated with great patri-
otic fervor. The second was a
more restrained solemnity in
which separatist communi-
ties recalled the tragic firing


by the El Porvenir press in
New York City.
As president of the Club
Ignacio Agramonte, N6stor
Carbonell was responsible
for the financial affairs of the
group and for acquiring funds
to promote the independence
of Cuba. This was a recur-
ring theme and prompted
Carbonell to pursue hosting
a major artistic and literary
velada for the benefit of the
club. The event would include
a renowned speaker who
could attract a large audience.
Aware of the growing stat-
ure and popularity of Jose
Marti and his recognized ora-
torical ability, Carbonell con-
ceived a plan to invite Marti to
speak at the fundraising event
sponsored by the Club Ignacio
Agramonte of Tampa.
The letter subsequently
written by Nestor Carbonell
to his friend Enrique Trujillo
on October 16,1891 in which
he discussed inviting Marti
to Tampa initiated a period

squad execution of eight med-

The various fundraising ac-
tivities employed by Ybor City
6migr6 associations included
parties, raffles, bazaars, sales
of commemorative publica-
tions and veladas, or special
evening events. These events
served to raise money for
specific purposes and helped
boost social and political co-
hesion. Such was the case
with the Club Ignacio Agra-
monte.
The club celebrated the
October 10th remembrance
in 1891 with a parade that
incurred costs that had to
be defrayed. This was ac-
complished with the revenue
generated by a publication
with which several prominent
Cubans separatists were as-
sociated. Among them were
New York separatist leaders

zalo de Quesada, Benjamin
Guerra and Enrique Trujillo.

of intensive correspondence
between Trujillo, Carbonell

amount of suspense and un-
certainty.
Correspondence
The year 1891 was an
eventful time in the life of Jose
Marti. The separatist leader
addressed the Hispano-Amer-
ican Literary Society of New
York, of which he was presi-
dent several times, and par-
ticipated in an international

the idea of inviting Marti to
speak in Tampa, Trujillo was
unable to inform Carbonell
that his friendship with Marti
had ended "por ciertas causes
de orden privado, que ninguna
relation tenian con la politico"
(for certain private reasons
that had no relationship with
politics). What Trujillo could
not divulge was that he had
facilitated the return of Mar-
ti's wife and son to Cuba with-
out informing Marti.

monetary conference where
he presented an influential re-
port on bimetallism. In June
he was reunited after a lengthy
separation with his wife Car-
men Zayas Bazan, who ar-
rived in New York with their
only child, Jose Francisco. In
October, Marti served as the
keynote speaker at an annual
event commemorating the Cu-
ban insurrection of 1868, and
later published a book of po-
ems titled Versos Sensillos. In
November, he was invited by
a reputable separatist organi-
zation to speak to the growing
6migr6 community in Tampa.
While noteworthy in them-
selves, those activities were
overshadowed by others that
suggested the end of a phase
in Marti's life and the begin-
ning of another. Marti re-
signed his prestigious consul-
ar posts and the presidency
of the Hispano-American So-
ciety, and his wife and son
departed secretly from New
York.
When Enrique Trujillo re-
ceived the letter dated October
16, 1891 from his friend N6s-
tor Carbonell that discussed


the letter, and anticipating
that personal communication
with Marti would prove em-
barrassing, Trujillo forwarded
the missive from Carbonell to
Marti through a mutual friend
named Gonzalo de Quesada.
Shortly thereafter, on Octo-
ber 20, 1891, Trujillo wrote to
Carbonell informing him that
Marti would telegraph his re-
ply and added that the invita-
tion was timely and beneficial,
since Marti's prestige had ris-
en significantly after resigning
the post of Argentine consul
in order to advance the Cuban
independence movement.
Carbonell wrote again to
Enrique Trujillo on October
26, 1891 and enclosed a let-
ter for Marti. In the narrative
to Trujillo he indicated that
the directors of the Club Igna-
cio Agramionte had approved
sending Trujillo money to
purchase a ticket for Marti to
visit Tampa. Carbonell stated
that the artistic-literary event
at which Marti was invited to
speak was scheduled for No-
vember 16, and suggested
that Marti depart from New
York City on or before Novem-


ber 13.
Carbonell went on to say
that despite Marti's known
dislike of personal flattery, the
club was preparing to greet
him with orchestral music.
Carbonell ended the letter in-
forming Trujillo that an invita-
tion for his attendance to the
event had been authorized by
the Club Ignacio Agramonte.
Not mentioned in the let-
ter was the apprehension that
Carbonell may have felt when
he informed the directors of
the Club Ignacio Agramonte
at their meeting on October
25 that he had invited Jose
Marti to speak without their
prior consent and that Marti


had accepted.
The reaction to Carbonell's
disclosure was the passage
of a motion by the club that
approved his action and con-
gratulated him for achieving
Marti's visit to Tampa. The
directors then scheduled the
proposed velada for November
16 and requested that Marti
depart from New York on No-
vember 11, 1891.
The issue of how the club
was going to pay for the ar-
tistic-literary velada and the
cost of Marti's fare had not
been considered and would
become the subject of consid-
erable discussion at meetings
held by the Club Ignacio Agra-

monte between October 25
and November 12, 1891.
The matter was reviewed
in detail by the club trea-
surer, Jose Gomez Santoyo,
and Bruno Roig. The latter, a
prominent member and direc-
tor of the club, had initially
raised the question of how a
program that was estimated
by Santoyo to cost about $170
would be financed when the
club lacked the funds.
Some members suggested
obtaining personal loans from
the membership that would
be reimbursed after the fund-
raiser. Others, notably Eligio
Carbonell, proposed that the
(continued to page 15)

club limit itself to expenses
that could be paid out of the
available club funds. The
consensus was that, with the
exception of Marti's fare, the
club would pay for expenses
after the velada, anticipating
that sufficient funds would be
raised by the event through
the sale of admission tickets.
At a later meeting on No-
vember 12, 1891, Carbonell
explained to the officers of
the club that he had hoped
to hire a stenographer in Ha-
vana who would go to Tampa
and record Marti's speech,
but that the cost was prohibi-
tive. One of the members then
suggested that they consider
hiring a Key West stenogra-
pher named Francisco Maria
Gonzalez. The lack of funds
with which to pay for the en-
gagement was again raised,
and another member offered
to advance the money to hire
Gonzalez with the expectation
that he would be reimbursed
after the velada. Gonzalez, a
well-known Key West separat-
ist, would be on hand to re-
cord Marti's Tampa speeches
for posterity.
Following receipt of the
October 26, 1891 letter from
N6stor Carbonell, Trujillo sent
Marti a note accompanied by
a letter from Carbonell ad-
dressed to Marti and request-
ed a reply.
Trujillo did not receive a
response and consequently
wrote letters on October 31,
1891 to three friends and po-
litical associates of both Tru-
jillo and Marti, requesting
that they serve as emissaries
to Marti. The prospective in-
termediaries were Gonzalo de
Quesada, Benjamin Guerra


and Modesto Tirado,
Quesada, who had deliv-
ered the letter to Marti that
initially proposed his visit,
would travel to Tampa in fu-
ture years on separatist mis-
sions, and later served as a
noted diplomat in the Repub-
lic of Cuba. Benjamin Guerra
subsequently operated a ci-
gar factory in the Tampa area
and became a major figure
in the separatist movement.
Modesto Tirado, a young pa-
triot from Puerto Rico, worked
closely with Marti to unite the
Cuban and Puerto Rican in-
dependence movements and
later participated in the final
war for Cuban independence.
Trujillo expressed chagrin
in his letters to the proposed
mediators. He mentioned the
two previous unanswered let-
ters he sent to Marti and not-
ed that he had been asked to
be the channel between Car-
bonell and Marti, and that
Marti had chosen to ignore
him and had embarrassed
him by responding directly to
Carbonell.
Consequently, on the night
of November 7, at the time
the Hispano-American Soci-
ety was debating whether or
not to accept Marti's resigna-
tion as president of the orga-
nization, Gonzalo de Quesada
delivered a personal note to
Trujillo from Jose Marti. The
note contained a message
acknowledging receipt of the
previous correspondence and
advising he had replied direct-
ly to Carbonell.
In the note, Marti indicated
he had telegraphed Carbonell
and informed him that he was
unable to comply with the re-
quested November 13 depar-
ture date and would instead


be available to leave from New.
York on November 24 and re-
turn by November 30.
Not having received the
information he requested in
his previous letters regarding
Marti's travel to Tampa, N6s-
tor Carbonell wrote again to
Trujillo on November 4,1891
and informed him that the
emigre organizations in Tam-
pa were anxiously awaiting
news about Mart's visit and to
please reply.
Trujillo responded on No-
vember 9 and apologized to
Carbonell for not having pro-
vided the exact date of Marti's
departure as requested, say-
ing he had not heard from
Marti until November 7 since
Marti had been occupied with
various matters until that
time. Trujillo then reiterated
the dates mentioned in the
note he received from Marti,
and indicated that he planned
to announce Marti's upcom-
ing visit to Tampa in the next
edition of El Porvenir.
Marti's travel dates re-
mained unsettled, however.
Carbonell wrote Trujillo a let-
ter also on November 9 in-
forming him that he had re-
ceived a telegram from Marti
in which he accepted the in-'
vitation to speak in Tampa
and had noted his anticipated
travel dates. The receipt of
the message, said' Carbonell,
had removed the suspense
and the "maldita sombra de
la duda" (cursed shadow of
doubt) that had hung over-the
6migr6 community about the
visit.
Carbonell went on to say
that the travel dates Marti
proposed created a major in-
convenience for the Club Ig-
nacio Agramonte. Marti had

Carbonell added that he
intended to send Trujillo the
funds with which to purchase
a railroad ticket for Marti and
requested that Trujillo deliver
the ticket to him in person.
He also requested that Tru-
jillo transmit a telegram to
Carbonell the day Marti de-
parted from New York, and
asked that Marti telegraph
Carbonell when he arrived at
Jacksonville, Florida. In clos-
ing, Carbonell informed Tru-
jillo of a tragic fire that had
occurred in Ybor City on No-
vember 12,1891.
The second letter was dated
November 14, 1891. In it Car-
bonell requested in anxious
terms that Trujillo reconfirm
Marti's proposed departure on
November 23 and his arrival
in Tampa on November 25.
He also requested that if that
departure date was not pos-
sible, to arrange for Marti to
leave New York on November
26. Carbonell then went on to
describe in detail the damage
and injuries caused by the re-

indicated that his departure
from New York City would
be on November 24, and was
therefore expected to arrive
in Tampa the evening of No-
vember 27. This was the same
time the 6migr6 community
would be celebrating a "Vela-
da funebre" (funeral event) in
honor of the medical students
executed in 1871. Marti's ar-
rival on that date would hin-
der the reception that was
planned to honor his arrival.
Carbonell then asked if it were
not possible for Marti to de-
part on the 26th and arrive on
the 28th, and return to New
York on November 30.
Enrique Trujillo then re-
ceived two additional and
consecutive letters from N6s-
tor Carbonell. In the first,
dated November 13, - 1891,
Carbonell informed his friend
that Marti had indicated in a
new letter that he would de-
part New York on November
23 and that Carbonell had
telegraphed his concurrence.
Carbonell noted that he an-
ticipated Marti would arrive in
Tampa on November 25 and
that the artistic-literary vela-

cent Ybor City fire, and men-
tioned the destruction of the
Gran Hotel Habana.
The hotel was owned by
Franciso Isern and was one
block east of the Teatro Ybor-
Liceo Cubano building on 7th
Avenue. At the time, the Gran
Hotel Habana and the Las
Nuevitas Hotel, situated on
the south side of 7th Avenue
across from the Liceo Cubano,


Jose Marti in 1891

provided local accommoda-
tions for travelers and other
guests. Carbonell noted that
the Liceo building had fortu-
nately not been damaged by
the blaze.
Trujillo forwarded the letter
of November 14, 1891 to Marti
for his information, and the
latter replied that he had writ-
ten to Carbonell earlier under
the impression that the Tam-
pa emigre community might
not wish to proceed with the
scheduled speaking engage-
ment after the fire, and had
suggested deferring his visit.
However, after reading the let-
ter Trujillo had forwarded, he
would confirm his departure
date of November 23 with Car-
bonell.
After receiving Marti's re-
ply reaffirming his intention
to go to Tampa, Trujillo com-
municated the information
to Carbonell on November 16
and explained Marti would
depart as planned. He added
*that he would send a tele-
gram as Carbonell requested,
and would make sure Marti
received the money sent to
pay for his ticket.
On November 19, Carbonell
wrote a more relaxed letter to
Trujillo in which he thanked
his friend for his assistance
and underscored his peace of
mind knowing with certainty
that Marti would depart from
New York City on November


23 and arrive in Tampa on
November 25. Enclosed with
the letter was a draft for the
amount of $50 with which to
purchase and deliver a ticket
to Jose Marti on behalf of the
Club Ignacio Agramonte. Car-
bonell reminded Trujillo once
again to send telegrams when
Marti departed from New York
and when he arrived in Jack-
sonville. In closing, Carbonell
requested that Marti indicate
in his telegram that his hosts
should meet-him in Ybor City
and not Tampa.
Enrique Trujillo" converted
the draft he received from
Carbonell and forwarded the
sum in cash to Marti with a
note referencing the intended
purpose of the money. He in-
formed his friend in Tampa
that the delivery of the money
had been accomplished and
that he would be unable to
attend the event. He also not-
ed that he expected to be no-
tified by Marti on the evening
of his departure, and would
send Carbonell a telegram on
the morning of November. 24.
Trujillo later revealed that he
sent the telegram Carbonell
requested after learning of
Marti's departure from Gon-
zalo de Quesada and not
from Marti, and that Marti
had chosen to send his own
telegram.
Epilogue
Jose Marti arrived in Tam-
pa in the late evening of No-
vember 25, 1891 and was
met at the South Florida Rail-
road Passenger and Freight
Depot in Ybor City by N6s-
tor Carbonell, Ramon Rive-
ro y Rivero and others who
formed a welcoming commit-
tee. He returned to New York
on the evening of November
28, 1891 surrounded by a
multitude of well-wishers.
During his short visit to Tam-
pa he delivered two brilliant
speeches that captured the
spirit of the times and im-
bued his audience with a re-
newed sense of hope, unity
and patriotic determination.
Responding to Marti's unique
leadership, the emigre com-
munity approved the Resolu-
ciones or principles that de-
fined the course to be followed
by the Cuban independence
movement. The bonds Marti
forged with the emigre orga-
nizations in Tampa were rep-
licated in Key West, New York,
Philadelphia and in nearly ev-
ery population center where
Cubans lived. He created a

trada Palma for president of
Cuba and was relieved of his
duties at the National Archive, ,
after which time he worked in
agriculture. In later years, he
held a number of government
positions including head of
the archives in the office of
the President of the Republic


paper until 1898, when he
returned to Cuba. He was
critical of Jose Marti and the
Partido Revolucionario Cuba-
no and proposed creating an
alternate political party. His
opinion of Marti and the criti-
cism of his party are complex.
He was ostracized by revolu-
"tionary separatists for being a
dissident and a troublemaker.
He corresponded with Antonio
Maceo and Maximo Gomez,
who valued his patriotism
and counseled him to rescind
his discordant views and to
work for unity. After return-
ing to Cuba he wrote for a lo-
cal newspaper. He died in Ha-
vana, Cuba on November 25,
1903.

MR. BLUrr'S EXPERIENCES or TiE HOLIDAYS


by Oliver Bell Bunce.
"I hate the holidays," said
Bachelor Bluff to me, with
some little irritation, on a
Christmas a few years ago.
Then he paused an instant,
after which he resumed, "I
don't mean to say that I hate
to see people enjoying them-
selves. But I hate holidays,
nevertheless, because to me
they are always the dreariest
and saddest days of the year.
I shudder at the name of holi-
day. I dread the approach of
one, and thank Heaven when
it is over. I pass through, on
a holiday, the most horrible
sensations, the bitterest feel-
ings, the most oppressive mel-
ancholy; in fact, I am not my-
self at holiday-times."
"Very strange," I ventured
to interpose.
"A plague on it!" said he,
almost with violence. "I'm not
inhuman. I don't wish any-
body harm. But I hate the
holidays all the same. You
see, this is the reason: I am
a bachelor; I am without kin;
I am in a place that did not
know me at birth. And so,
when holidays come around,
there is no place anywhere for


me. I have friends, of course;
I don't think I've been a very
sulky, shut-in, reticent fel-
low; and there is many a
board that has a place for me
- but not at Christmas-time.
At Christmas, the dinner is a
family gathering; and I've no
family. There is such a gath-
ering of kindred on this occa-
sion, such a reunion of family
folk, that there is no place for
a friend, even if the friend is
liked. Christmas, with all its
kindliness and charity and
good-will, is, after all, deuced
selfish. Each little set gathers
within its own circle; and peo-
ple like me, with no particular
circle, are left in the lurch. So
you see, on the day of all the
days in the year that my heart
pines, for good cheer, I'm with-
out an invitation.
"Oh, it's because I pine for
good cheer," said the bach-
elor, sharply, interrupting my
attempt to speak, "that I hate
the holidays. If I were an infer-
nally selfish fellow, I wouldn't
hate holidays. I'd go off and
have some fun all to myself,
somewhere or somehow. But,
you see, I hate to be in the
dark when all the rest of the


world is in light. I hate holi-
days, because I ought to be
merry and happy on holidays,
and can't.
"Don't tell me," he cried,
stopping the word that was
on my lips, "I tell you, I hate
holidays. The shops look mer-
ry, do they, with their bright'
toys and their green branch-
es? The pantomime is crowd-
ed with merry hearts, is it?
The circus and the show are
brimful of fun and laughter,
are they? Well, they all make
me miserable. I haven't any
pretty-faced girls or bright-
eyed boys to take to the circus
or the show, and all the nice
girls and fine boys of my ac-
quaintance have their uncles
or their grand-dads or their
cousins to take them to those
places; so, if I go, I must go
alone.. But I don't go. I can't
bear the chill of seeing ev-
erybody happy, and knowing
myself so lonely and desolate.
Confound it, sir; I've too much
heart to be happy under such
circumstances! I'm too hu-
mane, sir! And the result is,
I hate holidays. It's miserable
to be out, and yet I can't stay
at home, for I get to thinking

of Christmases past. I can't
read - the shadow of my heart
makes it impossible. I can't
walk - for I see nothing but
pictures through the bright
windows, and happy groups
of pleasure-seekers. The fact
is, I have nothing to do but to
hate holidays. --But will you
not dine with me?"
Of course, I had to plead
engagement with my own fam-
ily circle, and I couldn't quite
invite Mr. Bluff home that
day, when Cousin Charles
and his wife, and Sister Susan
and her daughter and three
of my wife's kin, had come in
from the country, all to make
a merry Christmas with us.
I felt sorry, but it was quite
impossible, so I wished Mr.
Bluff, "Merry Christmas," and
hurried homeward through
the cold and nipping air.
I did not meet Bachelor
Bluff again until a week after
Christmas of the next year,-
when I learned some strange
particulars of what occurred
to him after our parting on
the occasion just described. I
will let Bachelor Bluff tell his
adventure for himself:.
"I went to church," said he,
"and was as sad there as ev-
erywhere else. Of course, the
evergreens were pretty, and
the music fine; but all around
me were happy groups of
people, who could scarcely
keep down merry Christmas
long enough to do reverence
to sacred Christmas. And no-
body was alone but me. Every
happy paterfamilias in his
pew tantalized me, and the
whole atmosphere of the place
seemed so much better suited
to everyone else than me that
I came away hating holidays
worse than ever. Then I went
tod the play, and sat down in
a box all alone. Everybody
seemed on the best of terms
with everybody else, and jokes
and banter passed from one to
another with the most good-
natured freedom. Everybody
but me was in a little group of
friends. I was the only person
in the whole theater that was


alone. And then there was
such clapping of hands, and
roars of laughter, and shouts
of delight at all the fun go-
ing on upon the stage, all of
which was rendered doubly
enjoyable by everybody having
somebody with whom to share
and interchange the pleasure,
that my loneliness got simply
unbearable, and I hated holi-
days infinitely worse than ever.
"By five o'clock the holiday
became so intolerable that I
said I'd go and get a dinner.
The best dinner the whole
town could provide. A sump-
tuous dinner for one. A din-
ner with many courses, with
wines of the finest brands,
with bright lights, with a
cheerful fire, with every con-
dition of comfort - and I'd see
if I couldn't for once extract a
little pleasure out of a holiday!
"The handsome dining-
room at the club looked bright,
but it was empty. Who dines
at this club at Christmas but
lonely bachelors? There was a
flutter of surprise when I or-
dered a dinner, and the few
attendants were, no doubt,
glad of something to break the
monotony of the hours.
"My dinner was well served.
The spacious room looked
lonely; but the white, snowy
cloths, the rich window-hang-
ings, the warm tints of the
walls, the sparkle of the fire in
the steel grate, gave the room
an air of elegance and cheer-
fulness; and then the table
at which I dined was close to
the window, and through the
partly-drawn curtains were
visible centers of lonely, cold
streets, with bright lights from
many a window, it is true, but
there was a storm, and snow
began whirling through the
street. I let my imagination
paint the streets as cold and
dreary as it would, just to ex-
tract a little pleasure by way
- of contrast from the brilliant
room of which I was appar-
ently sole master.
"I dined well, and recalled
in fancy old, youthful Christ-

mases, and pledged mentally
many an old friend, and my
melancholy was mellowing
into a low, sad undertone,
when, just as I was raising a
glass of wine to my lips, I was
startled by a picture at the
window-pane. It was a pale,
wild, haggard face, in a great
cloud of black hair, pressed
against the glass. As I looked,
it vanished. With a strange
thrill at my heart, which my
lips mocked with a derisive
sneer, I finished the wine and
set down the glass. It was,


fairly startled. Replacing, un-
tasted, the liquor on the table,
I rose and went close to the
pane. The! face had vanished,
and I could see no object with-
in many feet of the window.
The storm had increased, and
the snow was drivingI in wild
gusts through the streets,
which were empty, save'here
and there a hurrying way-
farer. The whole scene was
cold, wild,, and desolate, and I
could not repress a keen thrill
of sympathy for the child,
whoever it was, whose only
Christmas was to watch, in


The rich banquet ungratefully enjoyed by a lonely bachelor.

"The first thing I did was to run against a small figu

of course, only a beggar-girl
that had crept up to the win-
dow and stole a glance at the
bright scene within; but still
the pale face troubled me a
little, and threw a fresh shad-
ow on my heart: I filled my
glass once more with wine,
and was again about to drink,
when the face reappeared at
the window. It was so white,
so thin, with eyes so large,
wild, and hungry-looking, and
the black, unkempt hair, into
which the snow had drifted,
formed so strange and weird
a frame to picture, that I was


cold and storm, the rich b
quet ungratefully enjoyed 1
lonely bachelor. I resumed
place at the table, but the
ner was finished, and the v
had no further relish. I
haunted by the vision at
window, and began, with
unreasonable irritation at
interruption, to repeat N
fresh warmth my detesta
of holidays. One couldn't e
dine alone on a holiday N
any sort of comfort, I decla
On holidays one was torm
ed by too much pleasure
one side, and too much r


ery on the other. And then, I
said, hunting for justification
of my dislike of the day, 'How
many other people are, like
me, made miserable by seeing
the fullness of enjoyment oth-
ers possessed!
"Oh, yes, I know," sarcasti-
cally replied the bachelor to a
comment of mine, "Of course,
all magnanimous, generous,
and noble-souled people de-
light in seeing other people
made happy, and are quite
content to accept this vicari-
ous felicity. But I, you see,
and this dear little girl-"
"Dear little girl!"
"Oh, I forgot," said Bach-
elor Bluff, blushing a little,
in spite of a desperate effort
not to do so. "I didn't tell you.
Well, it was so absurd! I kept
thinking, thinking of the pale,
haggard, lonely little girl on
ire the cold and desolate side of
the window-pane, and the

-you. I drank glass after glass
of the wine - not that-I en-
joyed its flavor any more, but
mechanically, as it were, and
with a sort of hope thereby to
drown unpleasant reminders.
I tried to attribute my annoy-
ance in the matter to holidays,
and so denounced them more
vehemently than ever. I rose
once and while and went to
the window, but could see
no one to whom the pale face
could have belonged.
"At last, in no very amiable
mood, I got up, put on my
wrappers, and went out; and
the first thing-I did was to run
against a small figure crouch-
ing in the doorway. A face
looked up quickly at the rough
encounter, and I saw the pale
features of the window-.pane. I
was very irritated and angry,
and spoke harshly; and then,
all at once, I am sure I don't
know how it happened, but it
flashed upon me that I, of all
men, had no right to utter a
harsh word to one oppressed
with so wretched a Christmas
as this poor creature was. I


couldn't say another word,
but began feeling in my pock-
et for some money, and then I
asked a question or two, and
then I don't quite know how
it came about - isn't it very
warm here?" exclaimed Bach-
elor Bluff, rising and walking
about, and wiping the perspi-
ration from his brow.
"Well, you see," he re-
sumed nervously, "it was very
absurd, but I did believe the
girl's story - the old story, you
know, of privation and suf-
fering, and all that - and just
thought I'd go home with the
brat and see if what she said
was all true. And then I re-
membered that all the shops
were closed, and not a pur-
chase could be made. I went
back and persuaded the stew-
ard to put up for me a hamper
of provisions, which the half-
wild little youngster helped
me carry through the snow,
dancing with delight all the
way. --And isn't this enough?"
"Not a bit, Mr. Bluff. I must
have the whole story."

"I declare," said Bachelor
Bluff, "there's no whole story
to tell. A widow with children
in great need, that was what
I found; and they had a feast
that night, and a little money
to buy them a load of wood
and a garment or two the
next day; and they were all so
bright, and so merry, and so
thankful, and so good, that,
when I got home that night, I
was mightily amazed that, in-
stead of going to bed sour at
holidays, I was in a state of
great contentment in regard to


holidays. In fact, I was really
merry. I whistled. I sang. I do
believe I cut a caper. The poor
wretches I had left had been
so merry over their unlooked-
for Christmas banquet that.
their spirits infected mine.
"And then I got thinking
again. Of course, holidays
had been miserable to me, I
said. What right had a well-
to-do, lonely old bachelor
hovering wistfully in the vi-
cinity of happy circles, when
all about there were so many
people as lonely as he, and yet
oppressed with want? 'Good
gracious!' I exclaimed, 'to


think of a man complaining of
loneliness with thousands of
wretches yearning for his help
and comfort, with endless op-
portunities for work and com-

do! Just to think of it! It put
me in a great fury at myself
just to think of it. I tried pret-
ty hard to escape from myself
and began inventing excuses
arid all that sort of thing, but
I rigidly forced myself to look
squarely at my own conduct.
And then I reconciled my con-

by Ferdie Pacheco
What do you do with
Christmas cards? When were
you first aware of Christmas
cards? The first Christmas
card I ever saw was in our
drug store, La Economica. We
sold an assortment of Christ-
mas cards there for a dime
and a quarter, but we always
had a lot left over, which we
put out the next year. They
were pretty scruffy by then
though.
JB did not recognize the
habit of sending out Christ-
mas cards. He viewed it as
wasteful, arguing that if you
truly wished to reach out to
someone, why not write a nice
long handwritten letter, per-
haps enclosing a snapshot of


the family? That only cost 3U
and would be better appreci-
ated.
This has, at its base, pure-
ly Depression-era thinking.
What? Waste 25� just to send
a dinky card from Kress? Not
for JB. One day, after the war,
when things were going well,
I suggested drawing up a La
Economic Drug Store card,
which would function as a
Christmas card and an adver-
tisement for La Economica.
"Who would I send that to?
A customer?" That quarter
represents the profit in a jar
of'cold, clear cash.

mas card came from, starting

Yes, Virginia, There Is a Santa Claus


The People's Almanac,
pp. 1358-9. (Originally pub-
lished in The New York Sun
in 1897.)
We take pleasure in an-
swering at once and thus
prominently the communica-
tion below, expressing at the
same time our great gratifica-
tion that its faithful author is
numbered among the friends
of The Sun:
Dear Editor -
I am 8 years old. Some of
my. little friends say there is
no Santa Claus, Papa says,
"If you see it in The Sun it's
so." Please tell me the truth, is
there a Santa Claus?
Virginia O'Hanlon
Virginia, your little friends
are wrong. They have been
affected by the skepticism of
a skeptical age. They do not
believe except what they see.
They think that nothing can
be which is not comprehen-
sible by their little minds.
All minds, Virginia,, whether
they be men's or children's,
are little. In this great uni-
verse of ours, man is a mere
insect, an ant, in his intellect,
as compared with the bound-
less world about him, as mea-
sured by the intelligence ca-
pable of grasping the whole of
truth and knowledge.
Yes, Virginia, there is a
Santa Claus. He exists as
certainly as love and gener-
osity and devotion exist, and
you know that they abound
and give to your life its high-
est beauty and joy. Alas!
how dreary would be the
world if there were no Santa
Claus. It would be as dreary
as if there were no Virginias.
There would be no childlike
faith then, no poetry, no ro-
mance to make tolerable this
- existence. We should have no
enjoyment, except in sense
and sight. *The external light
with which childhood fills the
world would be extinguished.
Not believe in Santa Claus!
You might as well not be-
lieve in fairies! You might
get your papa to hire men to *
watch in all the chimneys on
Christmas Eve to catch San-
ta Claus, but even if you did
not see Santa Claus coming
down, what would that prove?
Nobody sees Santa Claus, but
that is no sign that there is no
Santa Claus. The most real
things in the world are those
that neither children nor men
'- can see. Did you ever see
fairies dancing on the lawn?
Of course not, but that's no
proof that they are not there.
Nobody can conceive or imag-
ine all the wonders there are
unseen and unseeable in the
world.
You tear apart the baby's
rattle and see what makes the
noise inside, but there is a
veil covering the unseen world
which not the strongest man,
nor even the united strength
of all the strongest men that
ever lived could tear apart.
Only faith, fancy, poetry, love,
romance, can push aside that


U


curtain and view and picture
the supernal beauty and glory
beyond. Is it all real? Ah, Vir-
ginia, in all this world there is
nothing else real and abiding.
No Santa Claus! Thank
God! he lives, and he lives for-
ever. A thousand years from
now, Virginia, nay 10 times
10,000 years from now, he
will continue to make glad the
heart of childhood
About the Exchange
Francis P. Church's edito-
rial, "Yes, Virginia, There Is
a Santa Claus" was an im-
mediate sensation, and went
on to become one of the most
famous editorials ever writ-
ten. It first appeared in The
New York Sun in 1897, over
a hundred years ago, and was
reprinted annually until 1949
when the paper went out of
business.
Thirty-six years after her
letter was printed, Virginia
O'Hanlon recalled the events
that prompted her letter:
"Quite naturally I believed
in Santa Claus, for he had
never disappointed me. But
when less fortunate little boys
and girls said there wasn't
any Santa Claus, I was filled
with doubts. I asked my fa-
ther, .and he was a little eva-
sive on the subject.
"It was a habit in our fam-
ily that whenever any doubts
came up as to how to pro-
nounce a word or some ques-
tion of historical fact was in
doubt, we wrote to the Ques-
tion and Answer column in
The Sun. Father would always


say, 'If you see it in the The
Sun, it's so,' and that settled
the matter.
"'Well, I'm just going to
write The Sun and find out
the real truth,' I said to father.
."He said, 'Go ahead, Vir-
ginia. I'm sure The Sun will
give you the right answer, as
it always does.'"


And so Virginia sat down
and wrote her parents' favor-
ite newspaper.
Her letter found its way
into the hands of a veteran
editor, Francis P. Church. Son
of a Baptist minister, Church
had covered the Civil War for
The New York Times and had
worked on The New York Sun

for 20 years, more recently as
an anonymous editorial writ-
er. Church, a sardonic man,
had for his personal motto,
"Endeavour to clear your mind
of cant." When controversial
subjects had to be tackled on
the editorial page, especially
those dealing with theology,
the assignments were usually
given to Church.
Now, he had in his hands
a little girl's letter on a most
controversial matter, and he
was burdened with the re-
sponsibility of answering it.
"Is there a Santa Claus?"
the childish scrawl in the let-
ter asked. At once, Church
knew that there was no avoid-
ing the question. He must
answer, 'and he must answer
truthfully. And so he turned
to his desk, and he began his
reply, which was to become
one of the most memorable
editorials in newspaper his-
tory.
Church married shortly af-
ter the editorial appeared. He
died in April, 1906, leaving no
children.
Virginia O'Hanlon went
on to graduate from Hunter
College with a Bachelor of
Arts degree at age 21. The
following year she received
her Master's from Colum-
bia, and in 1912 she began
teaching in the New York
City school system, later be-
coming a principal. After 47
years, she retired as an edu-
cator. Throughout her life she
received a steady stream of
mail about her Santa Claus
letter, and to--each reply she
attached an attractive print-
ed copy of the Church editori-
al. Virginia O'Hanlon Douglas
died on May 13, 1971, at the
age of 81, in a nursing home
in Valatie, N.Y.











by Hans Christian Anderson
Out in the woods stood a
nice little Fir Tree. The place
he had was a very good one:
the sun shone on him: as to
fresh air, there was enough
of that, and round him grew
many large-sized comrades,
pines as well as firs. But the
little Fir wanted so very much
to be a grown-up tree.
He did not think of the
warm sun and of the fresh
air; he did not care for the
little cottage children that
ran about and prattled when
they were in the woods look-
ing for wild-strawberries. The
children often came with a
whole pitcher full of berries,
or a long row of them thread-
ed on a straw, and sat down
near the young tree and said,
"Oh, how pretty he is! What
a nice little fir!" But this was
what the Tree could not bear
to hear.
At the end of a year he had
shot up a good deal, and after
another year he was anoth-

trees one can always tell by
the shoots how many years
old they are.
"Oh! Were I but such a high
tree as the others are," sighed
he. "Then I should be able to
spread out my branches, and
with the tops to look into the
wide world! Then would the
birds build nests among my
branches: and when there
was a breeze, I could bend
with as much stateliness as
the others!"
Neither the sunbeams, nor
the birds, nor the red clouds
which morning and evening
sailed above him, gave the
little Tree any plcasure.-7
In.-winter, when the snow
llay glittering on the ground,
a hare would often come
leaping along, and jump
right over the little Tree. Oh,
that made him so angry! But
two winters were -past, and
in the third the Tree was
so large that the hare was
obliged to go round it. "To

In autumn the wood-cut-

some of the largest trees.

and the young Fir Tree, that
had now grown to a very
comely size, trembled at the
sight; for the magnificent
great trees fell .to the earth
with noise and cracking, the
branches were lopped off,
and the trees looked long
and bare; they were hardly
to be recognized; and then
they were laid in carts, and
the horses dragged them out
of the wood.
Where did they go to? What
became of them?
In spring, when the swal-
lows and the storks came, the
Tree asked them, "Don't you
know where they have been
taken? Have you not met
them anywhere?"
The swallows did not know
anything about it; but the
stork looked musing, nod-
ded his head, -and said, "Yes;
I think I know; I met many
ships as I was flying hither
from Egypt; on the ships were
magnificent masts, and I ven-
ture to assert that it was they
that smelt so of fir. I may con-
gratulate you, for they lifted
themselves on high most ma-
jestically!"

stood it not.
When Christmas came,
quite young trees were cut
down: trees which often were
not even as large or of the
same age as this Fir Tree,
who could never rest, but al-
ways wanted to be off. These
young trees, and they were
always the finest looking, re-
tained their branches; they
were- laid on carts, and the
horses drew them out of the
wood.
"Where are they going to?"
asked the Fir. "They are not
taller than I; there was one
indeed that was consider-
ably shorter; and why do they
retain all their branches?
Whither are they taken?"
"We know! We know!"
chirped the Sparrows. "We
have peeped in at the win-


Fir Tree, trembling in every
bough. "And then? What hap-
pens then?"
"We did not see anything
more: it was incomparably
beautiful."
"I would fain know if I am
destined for so glorious a ca-
reer," cried the Tree, rejoic-
ing. "That is still better than
to cross the sea! What a long-
ing do I suffer! Were Christ-
mas but come! I am now tall,
and my branches spread like
the others that were carried
off last year! Oh! were I but
already on the cart! Were I in
the warm room with all the
splendor and magnificence!
Yes; then something bet-
ter, something still grander,
will surely follow, or where-
fore should they thus orna-
ment me? Something better,
something still grander must
follow - but what? Oh, how
I long, how I suffer! I do not
know myself what is the mat-
ter with me!"
-"Rejoice in our presence!"
said the Air and the Sunlight.
"Rejoice in thy own. fresh
youth!"
But the Tree did not rejoice
at all; he grew and grew, and
was green both winter and
summer. People that saw him
said, "What a fine tree!" and
towards Christmas he was
one of the first that was cut
down. The axe struck deep
into the very pith; the Tree
fell to the earth with a sigh;
he felt a pang - it was like a
swoon; he could not think of


happiness, for he was sor-
rowful . at being separated
from his home, from the place
where he had sprung up. He
well knew that he should nev-
er see his dear old comrades,
the little bushes and flow-
ers around him, anymore:
perhaps not even the birds!
The departure was not at all
agreeable.
The Tree only came to him-
self when he was unloaded in
a court-yard with the other
trees, and heard a man say,
"That one. is splendid! We
don't want the others." Then
two servants came in rich
livery and carried the Fir
Tree into a large and splen-
did drawing-room. Portraits
were hanging on the walls,
and near the white porcelain
stove stood two large Chinese
vases with lions on the cov-
ers. There, too, were large
easy-chairs, silken sofas,
large tables full of picture-
books and full of toys, worth
hundreds and hundreds of
crowns - at least the chil-
dren said so. And the Fir Tree
was stuck upright in a cask
that was filled with sand; but
no one could see that it was
a cask, for green cloth was
hung all round it, and it stood
on a large gaily-colored car-
pet. Oh! how the Tree quiv-
ered! What was to happen?
The servants, as well as the
young ladies, decorated it. On
one branch there hung little
nets cut out of colored paper,
and each net was filled with
sugarplums; and among the
other boughs gilded apples
and walnuts were suspended,
looking as though they had
grown there, and little blue
and white tapers were placed
among the leaves. Dolls that
looked for all the world like
men - the Tree had never be-
held such before - were seen
among the foliage, and at the
very top a large star of gold
tinsel was fixed. It was really
splendid - beyond description
splendid.
"This evening!" they all
said. "How it will shine this
evening!"
"Oh!" thought the Tree. "If
the evening were but come! If
the. tapers were but lighted!
And then I wonder what will
happen! Perhaps the other
trees from the forest will
come to look at me! Perhaps
the sparrows will beat against
the windowpanes! I wonder
if I shall take root here, and
winter and summer stand
covered with ornaments!"
He knew very much about
the matter - but he was so im-
patient that for sheer longing
he got a pain in his back, and
this with trees is the same

THE FIR TREE


(continued from page 25)
* thing as a headache with us.
The candles were now
lighted - what brightness!
What splendor! The Tree
trembled so in every bough
that one of the tapers set fire
to the foliage. It blazed up fa-
mously.
"Help! Help!" cried the
young ladies, and they quick-
ly put out the fire.
Now the Tree did not even
dare tremble. What a state
he was in! He was so uneasy
lest he should lose something
of his splendor, that he was
quite bewildered amidst the
glare and brightness; when
suddenly both folding-doors
opened and a troop of chil-
dren rushed in as if they
would upset the Tree. The
older persons followed quiet-
ly; the little ones stood quite
still. But it was only for a mo-
ment; then they shouted that
the whole place re-echoed
with their rejoicing; they
danced round the Tree, and
one present after the other
was pulled off.
"What are they about?"
thought the Tree. "What is
to happen now!" And the
lights burned down to the
very branches, and as they
burned down they were put
out one after the other, and
then the children had per-
mission to plunder the Tree.
So they fell upon it with such
violence that all its branches
cracked; if it had not been
fixed firmly in the ground, it
would certainly have tumbled
down.
The children danced about
with their beautiful play-
things; no one looked at the
Tree except the old nurse,
who peeped between the
branches; but it was only to
see if there was a fig or an
- apple left that had been for-
gotten.
"A story! A story!" cried
the children, drawing a little
fat man towards the Tree.
He seated himself under it
and said, "Now'we are in the
shade, and the Tree can lis-
ten too. But I shall tell only
one story. Now which will you
have; that about Ivedy-Avedy,
or about Humpy-Dumpy, who
tumbled downstairs, and yet
after all came to the throne
and married the princess?"
"Ivedy-Avedy," cried some;
"Humpy-Dumpy," cried the
others. There was such a
bawling and screaming - the
Fir Tree alone was silent, and
he thought to himself, "Am I
not to bawl with the rest? Am
I to do nothing whatever?" for
he was one of the company,
and had done what he had to
do.
And the man told about
Humpy-Dumpy that tumbled
down, who notwithstand-
ing came to the throne, and
at last married the princess.
And the children clapped
their hands, and cried. "Oh,
go on! Do go on!" They want-
ed to hear about Ivedy-Avedy
too, but the little man only

told them about Humpy- up; and when at last some- cc

quite still and absorbed in put some great trunks in a it
thought; the birds in the
wood had never related the
like of this. "Humpy-Dumpy
fell downstairs, and yet he
married the princess! Yes,
yes! That's the way of the
world!" thought the Fir Tree,
and believed it all, because t.
the man who told the story
was so good-looking. "Well, . -'
well! who knows, perhaps I
may fall downstairs, too, and
get a princess as wife! And he
looked forward with joy to the . ' !
morrow, when he hoped to be
decked out again with lights,
playthings, fruits, and tinsel.
"I, won't, tremble to-mor-
row!" thought the Fir Tree.
"I will enjoy to the full all
my splendor! To-morrow I
shall hear again the story of
Humpy-Dumpy, and perhaps
that of Ivedy-Avedy too." And
the wh6le night the Tree stood
still and in deep thought. .
In the morning the servant .f
and the housemaid came in.
"Now then the splendor
will begin again," thought the
Fir. But they dragged him 54
out of the room, and up the
stairs into the loft: and here,
in a dark corner, where no
daylight could enter, they
left him. "What's the mean- t. * -
ing of this?" thought the
Tree. "What am I to do here?
What shall I hear now, I won- . -.---. -

the wall lost in reverie. Time
enough had he too for his -re-
flections; for days and nights

corner, out of the way. There
rood the Tree quite hidden;
seemed as if he had been


entirely forgotten.
"Tis now winter out-of-
doors!" thought the Tree.
"The earth is hard and cov-
ered with snow; men cannot
plant me now, and therefore
I have been put up here un-
* der shelter till the spring-
time comes! How thoughtful
that is! How kind man is,
after all! If it only were not
so dark here, and so terribly
lonely! Not even a hare! And
out in the woods it was so
pleasant, when the snow was
on the ground, and the hare
leaped by; yes - even when he
jumped over me; but I did not
like it then! It is really terribly
lonely here!"
"Squeak! Squeak!" said a
little Mouse, at the same mo-
ment, peeping out of his hole.
And then another little one
came. They snuffed about the
Fir Tree, and rustled among
the branches.
"It is dreadfully, cold," said
the Mouse. "But for that, it
would be delightful here, old
Fir, wouldn't it?"
"I am by no means old,"
said the Fir Tree. "There's
many a one considerably old-
er than I am."
"Where do you come from,"
asked the Mice; "and what
can you do?" They were so
extremely curious. "Tell us
about the most beautiful spot
on the earth. Have you never
been there? Were you never
in the larder, where cheeses
lie on the shelves, and hams
hang from above; where one

dies: that place where one
enters lean, and comes out
again fat and portly?"
"I know no such place,"
said the Tree. "But I know the
wood, where the sun shines
and where the little birds
sing." And then he told all
about his youth; and the little
Mice had never heard the like
before; and they listened and
said,
"Well, to be sure! How
much you have seen! How
happy you must have been!"
*"I!" said the Fir Tree, think-
ing over what he had himself
related. "Yes, in reality those
were happy times." And then
he told about Christmas-eve,
when he was decked out with
cakes and candles.
"Oh," said the little Mice,
"how fortunate you have been,
old Fir Tree!"
"I am by no means old,"
said he. "I came from the wood
this winter; I am in my prime,
and am only rather short for
my age."
"What delightful stories


you know," said the Mice: and
the next night they came with
four other little Mice, who
were to hear what the Tree
recounted:: and the more he
related, the more he remem-
bered himself; and it appeared
as if those times had really
been happy times. "But they
may still come - they may
still come! Humpy-Dumpy fell
downstairs, and yet he got a
princess!" and he thought at
the moment of a nice little
Birch Tree growing out in the
woods: to the Fir, that would
be a real charming princess.
"Who is Humpy-Dumpy?"
asked the Mice. So then the
Fir Tree told the whole fairy
tale, for he could remember
every single word of it; and the
little Mice jumped for joy up to
the very top of the Tree. Next
night two more Mice came,
and on Sunday two Rats even;
but they said the stories were
not interesting, which vexed
the little Mice; and they, too,
now began to think them not
so very amusing either.
"Do you know only one sto-

ry?" asked the Rats.
"Only that one," answered
the Tree. "I heard it on my
happiest evening; but I did
not then know how happy I
was."
"It is a very stupid story!
Don't you know one about ba-
con and tallow candles? Can't
you tell any larder stories?"
"No," said the Tree.
"Then good-bye," said the
Rats; and they went home.
At last the little Mice
stayed away also; and the
Tree sighed: "After all, it was
very pleasant when the sleek
little Mice sat round .me, and
listened to what I told them.
Now that too is over. But I will
take good care to enjoy myself
when I am brought out again."
But when was that to be?
Why, one morning there came
a quantity of people and set to
work in the loft. The trunks
were moved, the tree. was
pulled out and thrown - rath-
er hard, it is true - down on
the floor, but a man drew him
towards the stairs, where the
daylight shone.


"Now a merry life will begin
again," thought the Tree. He
felt the fresh air, the first sun-
beam - and now he was out
in the courtyard. All passed
so quickly, there was so much
going on around him, the Tree
quite forgot to look to himself.
The court adjoined a garden,
and all was in flower; the
roses hung so fresh and odor-
ous over the balustrade, the
lindens were in blossom, the
Swallows flew by, and said,
"Quirre-vit! My husband is
come!" but it was not the Fir
Tree that they meant.
"Now, then, I shall really
enjoy life," said he exultingly,
and spread out his branches;
but, alas, they were all with-
ered and yellow! It was in a
corner that he lay, among
weeds and nettles. The golden
star of tinsel was still on the
top of the Tree, and glittered
in the sunshine.
In the court-yard some of
the merry children were play-
ing who had danced at Christ-
mas round the Fir Tree, and
were so glad at the sight of
him. One of the youngest ran
and tore off the golden star.
"Only look what is still on
the ugly old Christmas tree!"


said he, trampling on the
branches, so that they all
cracked beneath his feet.
And the Tree beheld all the
beauty of the flowers, and the
freshness in the garden; he
beheld himself, and wished he
had remained in his dark cor-
ner in the loft; he thought of
his first youth in the wood, of
the merry Christmas-eve, and
of the little Mice who had lis-
tened with so much pleasure
to the story of Humpy-Dumpy.
"Tis over - 'tis past!" said
the poor Tree. "Had I but re-
joiced when I had reason to
do so! But now 'tis past, 'tis
past!"
And the gardener's boy
chopped the Tree into small
pieces; there was a whole
heap lying there. The wood
flamed up splendidly under
the large brewing copper, and
it sighed so deeply! Each sigh
was like a shot.
The boys played about in
the court, and the young-
est wore the gold star on his
breast which the Tree had had
on the happiest evening of his
life. However, that was over
now - the Tree gone, the story
at an end. All, all was over -
every tale must end at last.


The

One dollar and eighty-sev-
en cents. That was all. And
60< of it was in pennies. Pen-
nies saved one and two at a
time by bulldozing the grocer
and the vegetable man and
the butcher until one's cheeks
burned with the silent impu-
tation of parsimony that such
close dealing implied. Three
times Della counted it. One
dollar and eighty-seven cents.
And the next day would be
Christmas.
There was clearly nothing
to do but flop down on the
shabby little couch and howl.
So Della did it. Which insti-
gates the moral reflection that
life is made up of sobs, snif-
fles, and smiles, with sniffles
predominating.
While the mistress of the
home is gradually subsiding
from the first stage to the sec-
ond, take a look at the home.
A furnished flat at $8 per
week. It did not exactly beggar
description, but it certainly
had that word on the lookout
for the mendicancy squad.
In the vestibule below was
a letter-box into which no let-
ter would go, and an electric
button from which no mortal
finger could coax a ring. Also
appertaining thereunto was a
card bearing the name "Mr.
James Dillingham Young."
The "Dillingham" had been
flung to the breeze during a
former period of prosperity
when its possessor was be-
ing paid $30 per week. Now,
when the income was shrunk
to $20, the letters of "Dill-
ingham" looked blurred, as


though they were thinking
seriously of contracting to a
modest and unassuming D..
But whenever Mr. James Dill-
ingham Young came home
and reached his flat above he
was called "Jim" and greatly
hugged by Mrs. James Dill-
ingham Young, already intro-
duced to you as Della. Which
is all very good.
Della finished her cry and
attended to her cheeks with
the powder rag. She stood by
the window and looked out
dully at a grey cat walking a
grey fence in a grey backyard.
Tomorrow would be Christ-
mas Day, and she had only
$1.87 with which to buy Jim
a present. She had been sav-
ing every penny she could
for months, with this result.
Twenty dollars a week doesn't
go far. Expenses had been
greater than she had calcu-
lated. They always are. Only
$1.87 to buy a present for
Jim. Her Jim. Many a happy
hour she had spent planning
for something nice for him.
Something fine and rare and
sterling - something just a lit-
tle bit near to being worthy of
the honor of being owned by
Jim.
There was a pier-glass be-
tween the windows of the
room. Perhaps you have seen
a pier-glass in an $8 flat. A
very thin and very agile per-
son may, by observing his re-
flection in a rapid sequence of
longitudinal strips, obtain a
fairly accurate conception of
his looks. Della, being slen-
'der, had mastered the art.

The Gift of the


(continued from page 27)
Suddenly she whirled from
the window and stood before
the glass. Her eyes were shin-
ing brilliantly, but her face had
lost its color within twenty sec-
onds. Rapidly she pulled down
her hair and let it fall to its full
length.
Now, there were two pos-
sessions of the James Dill-


0. Henry, the pen name of


ingham Youngs in which they
both took a mighty pride. One
was Jim's gold watch that
had been his father's and his
grandfather's. The other was
Della's hair. Had the Queen of
Sheba lived in the flat across
the airshaft, Della would have
let her hair hang out the win-
dow some day to dry just to de-
preciate Her Majesty's jewels
and gifts. Had King Solomon
been the janitor, with all his
treasures piled up in the base-
ment, Jim would have pulled
out his watch every time he
passed, just to see him pluck
at his beard from envy.
So now Della's beautiful
hair fell about her, rippling
and shining like a cascade of
brown waters. It reached below
her knee and-made itself almost
a garment for her. And then
she did it up again nervously
and quickly. Once she faltered
for a minute and stood still
while a tear or two splashed on
the worn red carpet.
On went her old brown
jacket; on went her old brown
hat. With a whirl of skirts and
with the brilliant sparkle still
in her eyes, she fluttered out
the door and down the stairs
to the street.
Where she stopped the sign
read: "Mme. Sofronie. Hair
Goods of All Kinds." One flight
up Della ran, and collected
herself, panting. Madame,
large, too white, chilly, hardly
looked the "Sofronie."
"Will you buy my hair?"
asked Della.
"I buy hair," said Madame.
"Take yer hat off and let's have
a sight at the looks of it."
Down rippled the brown
cascade. "Twenty dollars," said
Madame, lifting the mass with


a practiced hand.
"Give it to me quick," said
Della.
Oh, and the next two hours
tripped by on rosy wings. For-
get the hashed metaphor. She
was ransacking the stores for
Jim's present.
She found it at last. It sure-
ly had been made for Jim and
no one else.

There was no other like it
in any of the stores, and she
had turned all of them inside
out. It was a platinum fob
chain simple and chaste in
design, properly proclaiming
its value by substance alone
and not by meretricious or-
namentation - as all good
things should do. It was even
worthy of The Watch. As soon
as she saw it she knew that it
must be Jim's. It was like him.
Quietness and value - the
description applied . to both.
Twenty-one dollars they took
from her for it, and she hur-
ried home with the 871. With
that chain on his watch Jim
might be properly anxious
about the time in any compa-
ny. Grand as the watch was,
he sometimes looked at it on
the sly on account of the old
leather strap that he used in
place of a chain.
When Della reached home
her intoxication gave way a
little to prudence and reason.,
She got out her curling irons
and lighted the gas and went
to work repairing the ravages
made by generosity added to
love. Which is always a tre-
mendous task, dear friends -
a mammoth task.
Within forty minutes her
head was covered with tiny,
close-lying curls that made
her look wonderfully like a
truant schoolboy. She looked
at her reflection in the mirror
long, carefully, and critically.
"If Jim doesn't kill me,"
she said to herself, "before
he takes a second look at me,
hell say I look like a Coney
Island chorus girl. But what
could I do - oh! what could I
do with $1.87?"

made and the frying-pan was
on the back of the stove hot
and ready to cook the chops.
Jim was never late. Della
doubled the fob chain in her
hand and sat on the corner of
the table near the door that
he always entered. Then she
heard his step on the stair
away down on the first flight,
and she turned white for just
a moment. She had a habit
for saying little silent prayers
about the simplest everyday
things, and now she whis-'
pered: "Please God, make him
think I am still pretty."
The door opened and Jim
stepped in and closed it. He
looked thin and very seri-
ous. Poor fellow, he was only
twenty-two - and to be bur-
dened with a family! He need-
ed a new overcoat and he was
without gloves.
Jim stopped inside the door,
as immovable as a setter at the
scent of quail. His eyes were
fixed upon Della, and there
was an expression in them
that she could not read, and it
terrified her. It was not anger,
nor surprise, nor disapproval,
nor horror, nor any of the sen-
timents that she had been pre-
pared for. He simply stared at
her fixedly with that peculiar
expression on his face.
Della wriggled off the table
and went for him.
"Jim, darling," she cried,
"don't look at me that way. I
had my hair cut off and sold it
because I. couldn't have lived
through Christmas without
giving you a present. It'll grow
out again - you won't mind,
will you? I just had to do it. My
hair grows awfully fast. Say
'Merry Christmas!' Jim, and
let's be happy. You don't know
what a nice - what a beautiful,
nice gift I've got for you."
, "You've cut off your hair?"
asked Jim, laboriously, as
if he had not arrived at that
patent fact yet even after the
hardest mental labor.
"Cut it off and sold it," said
Della. "Don't you like me just
as well, anyhow? I'm me with-
out my hair, ain't I?"


Magi
Jim looked about the room
curiously.
"You say your hair is gone?"
he said, with an air almost of
idiocy. "You needn't look for
it," said Della. "It's sold, I tell
you - sold and gone, too. It's
Christmas Eve, boy. Be good
to me, for it went for you.
Maybe the hairs of my head
were numbered," she went on
with sudden serious sweet-
ness, "but nobody could ever
count my love for you. Shall I
put the chops on, Jim?"
Out of his trance Jim
seemed quickly to wake. He
enfolded his Della. For ten
seconds let us regard with
discreet scrutiny some incon-
sequential object in the other
direction. Eight dollars a week
or a million a year - what is
the difference? A mathemati-
cian or a wit would give you
the wrong answer. The magi
brought valuable gifts, but
that'was not among them.
This dark assertion will be il-
luminated later on.
Jim drew a package from
his overcoat pocket and threw
it upon the table.
"Don't make any mistake,
Dell," he said, "about me. I
don't think there's anything in
the way of a haircut or a shave
or a shampoo that could make
me like my girl any less. But
if you'll unwrap that package
you may see why you had me
going a while at first."
White fingers and nimble
tore at the string and paper.
And then an ecstatic scream
of joy; and then, alas! a quick
feminine change i6 h-.orerical
tears and wails, necessitating'
the immediate employment of
all the comforting powers of
the lord of the flat.
For there lay The Combs
- the set of combs, side and
back, that Della had wor-
shipped long in a Broadway
window.. Beautiful combs,'
pure tortoise shell, with jew-
eled rims - just the shade to
wear in the beautiful vanished
hair. They were expensive
combs, she knew, and her
heart had simply craved and


yearned over them without
the least hope of possession.
And now, they were hers, but
the tresses that should have
adorned the coveted adorn-
ments were gone.
But she hugged them to
her bosom, and at length she
was able to look up with dim
eyes and a smile and say: "My
hair grows so fast, Jim!"
And them Della leaped up
like a little singed cat and
cried, "Oh, oh!"
Jim had not yet seen his
beautiful present. She held it
out to him eagerly upon her
open palm. The dull precious
metal seemed to flash with a
reflection of her bright and ar-
dent spirit.
"Isn't it a dandy, Jim? I
hunted all over town to find it.
You'll have to look at the time
a hundred times a day now.
Give me your watch. I want to
see how it looks on it."
Instead of obeying, Jim
tumbled down on the couch
and put his hands under the
back of his head and smiled.
"Dell," said he, "let's put
our Christmas presents away
and keep 'em a while. They're
too nice to use just at pres-
ent. I sold the watch to get
the money to buy your combs.
And now suppose you put the
chops on."
The magi, as you know,
were wise men - wonderfully
wise men - who-brought gifts
to the Babe in the manger.
They invented the art of giv-
ing Christmas presents. Being
wise, their gifts were no doubt
wise ones, possibly bearing
'he privilege of exchange in
case o aoupraOtion. And here I
have lamely related to 30 ahe
uneventful chronicle of two
foolish children in a flat who
most unwisely sacrificed for
each other the greatest trea-
sures of their house. But in a
last word -to the wise of these
days let it be said that of all
who give gifts these two were
the wisest. Of all who give and
receive gifts, such as they are
wisest. Everywhere they are
wisest. They are the.magi.:
