Governor Rick Scott is making
it more evident that his decision
on high-speed rail is less about
the numbers and more about
posturing. His Facebook link on
the rail subject is titled "Facts
about President Obama's High-
Speed Rail Project". We didn't
know President Obama invented
high-speed rail. We thought that
Congress approved the money and
that Florida went through a com-
petitive process to win the grant.
Silly us. Good thing Governor
Scott is there to remind us that
high-speed rail in Central Florida


is an Obama thing.

Tampa's municipal election is
on Tuesday, March 1. If no can-
didate receives 50 percent plus
one of the vote in a race, the two
candidates receiving the highest
number of votes will go to a runoff
election held on March 22.
We will once again put our repu-
tation on the line and predict the
winners and losers on Tuesday.
Turnout
We believe 45,000 to 50,000
voters will come out to cast their
votes. Every registered voter in

Tampa has the opportunity to
cast their vote for mayor, three

single-member district city council
member and one referendum.
Mayor
Since the main candidates an-
nounced, we have felt that this


was a race between Dick Greco
and Rose Ferlita. We still feel this
way. We think Greco has a slight
lead over Ferlita and the two will
go to a runoff. We think Buckhorn
has narrowed the gap between
second and third, but that he'll

These gentlemen, (left to right) attorney William "Willie" Garcia,
Tony "Half-Pint" Lopez, former County Commissioner Clarence
Prevatt and Henry Echezabal campaigned against the passage of the
Hillsborough County charter in 1967. They persevered, celebrating
the victory in the office of Commissioner Prevatt in the county court-
house by "acquiring" and displaying this banner from the propo-
nents' office. "To the victors belong the spoils." Prior to 1979, there

were three attempts to adopt a home rule charter for Hillsborough
County. Constitutional officers largely opposed the proposals
because they wanted to be excluded from any reorganization under a
consolidated city-county charter. In a special election held Septem-
ber 20, 1983, the charter was approved by the voters with the recom-
mendation of the Board of County Commissioners.

Brasil
Contrastantes han sido las primeras semanas de gesti6n
de Dilma Rousseff en Brasil. Ha obtenido victorias en el Con-
greso y tenido desacuerdos con aliados sindicales. La presi-
denta quiere desmarcarse de la political econ6mica y exterior
que defini6 su antecesor y mentor Luiz Inacio Lula da Sil-
va, lo que ha generado roces con los gremios sindicales que
le dieron su apoyo para veneer en los comiciQs. Rousseff se
anot6 un triunfo con la aprobaci6n del aumento salarial de
510 reales (305 d6lares) a 545 reales (326 d6lares) a pesar de
que los sindicatos lo consideran insuficiente. La mandataria
obtuvo el apoyo de 361 diputados contra 120 rechazos y 11
abstenciones. Alejandro Mendible, professor de la Universidad
Central de Venezuela (UCV) y expert en Brasil, afirma que la
victoria de Rousseff le permitird realizar un plan de reorgani-
zaci6n para estabilizar al pais. "Ella busca sincerar los gas-
tos que tenia la administraci6n de Lula", dice. Mendible cree
que estas medidas, aunque puedan ser impopulares, buscan
normalizar el desarrollo del pais. Para el expert, los cambios
politicos se deben en parte a que Rousseff no pretend obte-
ner protagonismo como si hizo Lula en su moment, y quiere
lograr una political econ6mica mas firme y menos populista.
Colombia
El ministry colombiano de Defensa, Rodrigo Rivera, dijo
que el maximo jefe de las FARC, Alfonso Cano, "va a caer"
y llam6 a los integrantes de esa guerrilla a desmovilizarse.
"Ahora estamos detrs de' Alfonso Cano. Y va a caer, como
todos los del 'secretariado' (mando central de las FARC). Por
eso, los llamo a que se desmovilicen, antes de que pierdan
esta oportunidad", sefial6 Rivera al diario bogotano El Tiem-
po, mencion6 AFP. Afiadi6 que las tropas regulars buscan
a los guerrilleros de las Fuerzas Armadas Revolucionarias de
Colombia (FARC) "en sus madrigueras, en donde (antes) se
sentian muy c6modos". Las declaraciones de Rivera se co-
nocieron un dia despues de que la jefatura military confirma-
ra que lanz6 una vasta operaci6n con cientos de soldados
contra Cano en una zona montafiosa del suroeste del pais,
donde la semana pasada fueron liberados tres miembros de
la fuerza piblica en poder de las FARC desde hace meses.
El operative se lleva a cabo en una region limitrofe entire los
departamentos de Cauca y Tolima donde operan el frente 21
y otros escuadrones guerrilleros que protegen a Cano, quien
sucedi6 en la comandancia de las FARC al extinto Manuel
Marulanda Velez.
Bolivia
El gobierno boliviano rechaz6 el incremento salarial que
exigen los principles sindicatos del pais y demand a sus di-
rigentes dialogar para frenar las protests que se preven para
las pr6ximas horas. El ministry boliviano de Trabajo, Felix
Rojas, inform que la Central Obrera Boliviana (COB) oficia-
liz6 una demand de 8.300 bolivianos, unos 1.100 d6lares,
como salario basico, una pretensi6n que fue calificada de
"excesiva e inatendible", dijo DPA. "Se trata de elevar en 11
veces, en mas del 1.000%, los actuales niveles salariales del
pais", dijo Rojas, al seflalar que la economic boliviana no ha
crecido en esos pardnetros. Asegur6 que el incremento serd
superior al 7,18%, que es el indice de la inflaci6n de 2010.
El salario bdsico en el pais alcanza los 80 d6lares y es el mas
bajo de Suramerica. El president Evo Morales design a su
ministry secretario, a cargo de los asuntos de la Presidencia,
Oscar Coca, y a los responsables de las carteras Economia,
Luis Arce, y Trabajo para abrir el dialogo este lunes.
Venezuela
El lider libio Muamar Gadafi esta en Tripoli, donde sigue
"ejerciendo sus poderes" y "haciendo frente a la situaci6n"
que vive el pais, confirm en un comunicado el canciller ve-
nezolano, Nicolas Maduro. Tras una conversaci6n con su par
Libio Mussa Kussa Maduro desminti6 "los comentarios que
de manera irresponsible hizo a la prensa el canciller del Rei-
no Unido, William Hague", quien declar6 que Gadafi podria
haber huido de su pais y estaria rumbo a Venezuela, inform
AFP. Por otra parte, el comunicado del gobierno venezolano
subray6 la "amistad hist6rica" entire el pueblo libio y el ve-
nezolano, cuyos dirigentes han estrechado su relaci6n en los
fltimos afios. Ademis y seguin el texto, Maduro express a
Kussa su deseo de que "el pueblo libio encuentre, en ejercicio
de su soberania, una soluci6n pacifica a sus dificultades" y
que siga preservando su integridad. El ministry venezolano
confi6 tambien en que este process se lleve a cabo "sin la
injerencia del imperialismo cuyos intereses en la region se
han visto afectados en los ultimos tiempos", refiriendose a
Estados Unidos, por quien ambos paises comparten animad-
version.

En Pocas Palabras
Abel Ibarra
Esta secciOn estd destinada a co-
mentar el origen de las palabras que
conforman nuestro idioma espaFiol de
todos los dias. Para decirlo en terminos
tccnicos, lo que estamos buscando es la etimologia
de los vocablos que se han venido formando y desa-
rrollando a lo largo de la historic, para que podamos
comunicarnos con el mundo en la lengua de Cervantes.
Bolero
La palabra bolero identifica a esas canciones romdnti-
cas y pegajosas que generalmente asociamos a las islas de
Cuba y Puerto Rico y, sin embargo, tiene un origen distin-
Sto. Hoy, en pocas palabras, vamos a seguirle la pista hasta
llegar al moment de su nacimiento.
Inicialmente volero se escribia con "V" pequefia o la-
biodental y fue inventada por Sebastian Cerezo, un bai-
lador gaditano, es decir, nacido en Cadiz, Espafia. Luego,
el excitante ritmo cambi6 la "V" pequefla por la "B" alta o
labial, cuando Maurice Ravel compuso su famoso Bolero,
para delicia de los amantes de la muisica clasica. Bolero se
escribia con "V" porque derivaba del verbo "volar", que era
lo que hacia el bailador espafiol con su grupo de danza y,
lo que hacen las parejas cuando se entregan con frenesi,
al baile donde comienza todo romance.

El deported al dia
por Harvey Grajales


(Viene de la pagina 1)
Las razones por las que Gas-
parilla continue atrayendo a
grandes multitudes son tan
variadas como las personas
que participan. "He estado
corriendo toda mi vida y creo
que estoy mejor por ello",
dijo George McConnell Jr.,de
Tampa, quien ha competido
en todas las Gasparilla desde
su creaci6n y estard'acompa-
fiado por 18 miembros de la
familiar participan en la pre-
sente edici6n del event.
"En esta era en que la eco-
nomia no es nada agradable,
este festival deportivo annual
ha experimentado un mont6n
de obsticulos en el camino,
que acompafa a la lentitud
del crecimiento econ6mico
como han sido las empresas
con presupuestos limitados
como el patrocinio de events
de caridad, como Gasparilla.
En 2007 la carrera perdi6 su
patrocinador principal, el-
Bank of America, que habia
estado bombeando cerca de $
150.000 por afo en el event.
Afortunadamente para los
corredores locales, el director
de la carrera Susan Harme-
ling a convencido a Publix Su-
per Markets para aumentar
su papel patrocinador.
En pocas palabras: Gaspari-
lla s6lo parece impermeable a
la recesi6n.
"No tenia ni idea de que es-
perar con la introducci6n de
la media marat6n y 8k y la
ausencia de la marat6n", dijo
Harmeling. "Estoy muy con-
tenta y animada."

Los Hermanos
Por Arturo R Rivera
Mucho antes de que Al
Qaeda se fund en Egipto,
surgi6 el grupo conocido como
"Los Hermanos Musulmanes",
cuyo objetivo es el mismo que
Al Qaeda, la creaci6n de un
Califato en el mundo; en otras
palabras, la creaci6n de una
teocracia en el mundo. La
Sociedad Hermanos Musul-
manes fue fundada en 1928
para restaurar el Califato, el
gobierno religioso de ambito
universal cuyo fin es luchar
contra el infield o los no creyen-
tes, mas especificamente: los
cristianos, los hindues y los
judios; extendiendo por todo
el orbe al Islam! Se oponen a
la existencia de cualquier es-
tado secular en las sociedades
musulmanas del Oriente Me-
dio.
Este grupo estaba prohibi-
do en Egipto por su historical
violent y terrorist. Los Her-
manos Musulmanes asesina-
ron al primer ministry egipcio
Mahmud Fahmi Nugrashi, en
1948, y conspiraron para ma-
tar al president Gamal Abdel
Nasser en los primeros aflos
50. Una organizaci6n herma-
na, la "Jihad Islamica", cuyo
lider es Ayman Al Zawahiri,
que posteriormente seria el
nuimero dos de Osama bin La-
den, asesin6 a Anwar Al Sa-
dat en 1981 e intent hacer lo
propio con el president Hosni
Mubarak en 1995.
Durante la revuelta recien-
te en Egipto esa organizaci6n
estuvo en un segundo piano,
como estrategia para que no
se creara un temor de que la
revuelta creard un estado isla-
mico como Iran. Sin embargo,
no se puede subestimar a los
Hermanos Musulmanes, por-
que es una organizaci6n que
puede tomar el poder en Egip-
to por su capacidad organiza-
tiva y militancia.
El pensamiento politico de
los Hermanos consiste en la
oposici6n de forma extrema
a la civilizaci6n occidental y
a un acuerdo politico pacifi-
co que resuelva el conflict
drabe-israeli. La organizaci6n
Hamas es una filial palestina
de la Sociedad de los Herma-
nos Musulmanes. He aqui al-
gunas de sus posiciones:
Libertades Politicas Los
Hermanos rechazan las de-
mocracias occidentales, los
sistemas que garantizan la
participaci6n political de todos
los ciudadanos sin discrimi-
naci6n ideol6gica religiosa o
de opinion. Los Hermanos

garet Francis: Una joven
de ochenta y nueve afos de
edad, Margaret ha sido una
parte vital del program de
voluntarios de la escuela ele-
mental Fox Hollow durante
19 aflos. Viene a la escuela
casi todos los dias, y en va-
lor entrega cada vez mas de
un dia complete de trabajo.
Ella ayuda como asistente de
la biblioteca, supervisando el
bur6 de circulaci6n, ayudan-
do a los niflos a encontrar el
libro perfectto, y procesan-.
do y colocando los libros en
los estantes. Margaret ofre-
ce tutoria a los estudiantes
y les ayuda con sus trabajos
de classes y sus tareas para
la casa. Ella tambien ayuda
como mentor de los niflos
con sus frecuentes palabras
de estimulo. Finalmente, co-
ordina proyectos especiales
como el dia de fotografias, la
feria del libro y los reconoci-
mientos mensuales a estu-
diantes del mes. Su dedica-
ci6n, energia y confianza han
tenido un gran impact en la
escuela y la comunidad.

Musulmanes
Musulmanes someten la par-
ticipaci6n de los individuos a
los principios de la Sharia Is-
lamica.
Libertad de Creencias -
Los hermanos musulmanes
s6lo garantizan la libertad
de creencias a los seguidores
de las religiones reveladas
(abrahamicas), tambien co-
nocidos como los pueblos del
libro.
Libertades Personales-
Mientras que las democracies
occidentales garantizan la li-
bertad absolute del individuo
si no intervene con la libertad
de los demas, los Hermanos
Musulmanes colocan la liber-
tad de pensamiento dentro de
los estrictos pardmetros del
c6digo moral que se despren-
de de la Sharia o ley Islamica.
Derechos de la Mujer En
las democracies occidenta-
les las mujeres disfrutan de
los mismos derechos politi-
cos que los hombres. Pueden
ocupar cargos y participar en
la vida pliblica sin ninguna
restriccion de genero. Pero en
lo que a los Hermanos Musul-
manes concierne, la participa-
ci6n political de las mujeres, si
los Hermanos Musulmanes
conquistan el poder, la mujer
quedaria limitada a votar en
las elecciones municipales y
a desempefar cargos locales.
Una mujerjamis podria estar
a la cabeza del Estado. Para
mayor marginaci6n de las mu-
jeres, los Hermanos Musul-
manes proyectan un plan de
studios que incluye material
apropiado para las mujeres a
la media de la naturaleza e
importancia que reservan al
genero femenino. Los Herma-
nos insisted en la segregaci6n
de sexos en las aulas.
Economia Los Hermanos
Musulmanes exigen el esta-
blecimiento de un sistema
econ6mico basado en el res-
peto a la propiedad privada,
pero sin menoscabo de ello,
manifiestan que dicho siste-
ma debe estar basado en los
principios de la Sharia Islami-
ca que criminaliza los intere-
ses bancarios.
Sistema de Gobierno Los
Hermanos Musulmanes exi-
gen un sistema de gobierno
indefinido y regido por los
principios de la Sharia y fun-
dado en la resurrecci6n del
Califato Islamico.
Todo esto demuestra la
amenaza que represent los
islamistas radicales, no tan
s6lo para el Medio Oriente
sino tambien para Occidente.

Debes tener cuidado, has
conocido a una persona que
te parece perfect, pero el
empeflo que pone en tratar
de conocer todo sobre ti es

para proporcionarte la energia
coordinada que necesitas para
salir adelante.
TAURO: del 21 de abril al
20 de mayo
Es la oportunidad de de-
mostrar tu buen coraz6n y

Acercate a tus allegados,
quienes te aprecian necesitan

A Noticias de Inmigraci6n

Director de Inmigracion de Catholic Charities
Por Jos6 Fern6ndez

Corrija los errors de
Inmigracion a tiempo
Pregunta: Me llamo Fermin, tengo 35 afios de edad y soy
originario de Mexico. Mi padre, resident permanent de los
EE.UU., me hizo una petici6n familiar hace mds de trece afios.
Esta ya ha sido aprobada y estoy esperando el turno. En la
aprobaci6n que recibi, he notado que hay un error y es que
Inmigraci6n me ha inscrito en su sistema incorrectamente, lo
cual se refleja en mi carta de aprobaci6n como hijo soltero,
mayor de veintiun afios de edad de un ciudadano americano,
que no es el caso de mi padre. Quisiera saber si esto me podria
traer problems en el future con mi trarnite de inmigraci6n y,
si es un problema, necesito saber c6mo corregirlo.
Respuesta: Fermin cualquier error, ya sea en una car-
ta de aprobaci6n o cualquier document de Inmigraci6n, se
debe corregir lo antes possible para evitar problems en sus
trfmites en el future. Para enmendar la informaci6n que esta
en el sistema de informaci6n de Inmigracion, necesita hacer
una carta dirigida a esta oficina, firmada por su padre, men-
cionado en la carta el error y pidiendole a inmigracion que
corrija el error para que en el sistema de information apa-
rezca su petici6n familiar como hijo soltero de un resident
permanent mayor de veintiin ainos de edad. Con esta carta
necesita incluir una copia de su carta de aprobacidn. Si no
corrige este error, usted podria terminar solicitando su resi-
dencia permanent antes de tiempo y podria perder los costs
pagados para solicitar su residencia permanent.

Por Alexis Ortiz
Huelgas de hambre
A un afio de la muerte de
Orlando Zapata Tamayo en
una huelga de hambre en
Cuba contra el despotismo de
los hermanos Castro, se apre-
cia el valor de la inmolaci6n
de ese patriota. La muerte de
Zapata denunci6. al mundo,
mas que cualquier otro he-
cho, la opresi6n y el fracaso
del comunismo cubano. Algo
parecido se puede afirmar de


la huelga que hicieron los es-
tudiantes venezolanos para
reclamar la presencia de la
OEA, para constatar los abu-
sos y la corrupci6n del gobier-
no de Chavez. El gesto heroic
de los j6venes no s6lo oblig6
al mand6n comunista de Ve-
nezuela a hacer concesiones,
sino que desnud6 frente a la
opinion international la tex-
tura tiranica de ese regimen
que quiere hacerse pasar por
democratic.


Agenda latina


Reaparece Gorbachov
Despues de various afios de
discreci6n, dedicado a las ta-
reas de su Fundaci6A de estu-
dios democraticos, reapareci6
el lider de la conversion de la
tirania comunista sovi tica
en un regimen de libertades
political y econ6micas, Mijail
Gorbachov. El hombre de la
perestroika critical al jerarca
ruso Vladimir Putin por su
acaparamiento de poder y au-
toritarismo. Hacia falta que se
alzara la voz libertaria de Gor-
bachov, porque el occidente
democratic es, por razones


mercantiles, muy compla-
ciente con dictaduras como la
'saudita, china y rusa.

Funeral & Cremation Services


















Quest' anno le celebrazioni
del carnevale arrivano con un
po' di ritardo, normalmente si
celebrano verso la meeta' di
febbraio.
Negli ultimi 3 anni anche a
Tampa, per iniziativa di qual-
che persona si e' celebrate il
Carnevale, rifacendosi magari
al carnevale che si festeggia a
Venezia.
Per quando ci risulta anche
quest'anno ha preso l'iniziativa
il famoso Ristorante Donatello,
anche per il fatto che i proprie-
tari sono originari appunto di
Venezia.
Cosi hanno pensato di or-
ganizzare una cena appunto
press il Ristorante Donatello
per la sera del 8 Marzo con
inizio alle ore 7.00 p.m., coloro
i quali volessero partecipare
sono incoraggiati a venire ma-
gari in costumi di carnevale o
anche semplicemente con delle
maschere e se non ne fossero
in possess lo stesso ristorante
ne potra' fornire una.


II Carnevale e la Sua Storia


La serata oltre che da gusto-
si piatti della cucina italiana
, offrira' spettacoli musical
con partecipazione di giovane
cantanti d' opera, lettura della
mano, giochi di magia ecc....
Si consiglia di prenotarsi e
lo si puo' faie chiamando al nu-
mero telefonico 813-875-6660.
Detto questo adesso voglia-
mo porre alla vostra attenzione
qualche in formazione storica
sul carnevale in Italia.
Si dice che la parola "CAR-
NEVALE" derivi dal caree
levare" perched i festeggiamenti,
precedendo l'inizio della Qua-
resima, rappresentano l'ultimo
moment per mangiare came;
c'e anche una leggenda che ri-
sale all'epoca babilonese: il dio
Sole e la dea Luna durante le
feste per la fine dell'anno erano
fatti salire su una nave con le
ruote, chiamata "carro navale"
e portati in procession.
Una storia antica, legata ad
un unico filo: il divertimento,
la spensieratezza, la goliardia,


che resisted tenace durante
secoli e secoli, intrecciata
saldamente alle tradizioni e al
folklore dei diversi popoli.
Alle sue origini troviamo le
feste pagane che si celebravano
a Roma in onore di Saturno
dal 17 al 23 dicembre; in quei
giorni regnava nell'Urbe un'ec-
cezionale allegria ed ognuno
godeva della piu ampia liberty,
tanto che gli schiavi mangia-
vano alla stessa tavola dei
padroni.
II Carnevale in Europa e
stato per secoli una festa d'ini-
zio dell'anno. I suoi scherzi e
i suoi riti rappresentavano la
fine dell'anno vecchio e l'inizio
del nuovo.
Con l'avvento del Cristiane-
simo, i festeggiamenti perdet-
tero molte delle loro caratte-
ristiche orgiastiche e vennero
spostati ad una data successi-
va, e cioe nel period che corre
dall'Epifania al mercoledi delle
Ceneri .
Era una festa di origine con-


tadina: nella meta di febbraio
moriva l'inverno e si avvicina-
va la primavera e cosi con il
carnevale un ciclo di stagioni
finiva e un altro ne incomin-
ciava. Un corteo di maschere
faceva parte delle celebrazioni
di carnevale ed erano fantasmi
o anime di morti che strana-
mente rassicuravano la gente
perched offrivano la protezione
ai vivi e al raccolto.
Con il passare degli anni si
ebbe tuttavia una riviviscenza
delle consuetudini pagane tan-
to e vero che Innocenzo III stig-
matizz6 in una bolla papale, le
excessive licenze carnevalesche
e cerc6 di disciplinary feste
e corsi mascherati, abolendo
alcune usanze ed istituendone
di nuove.
Al Medioevo risalgono le pri-
me edizioni della sagra "degli
asini" e di quella "dei pazzi";
quest'ultima che ci e stata
magistralmente descritta da
Victor Hugo in "Notre Dame de
Paris", si svolgeva nella capita-


''r;:l?~ I;.~f'.~
4.~'
;-~?'

-as~ ~~


le francese ed altro non era se
non una grottesca farsa delle
piu austere cerimonie religiose.
Una delle caratteristiche dei
Carnevali dell'eta di mezzo era
poi quella della procession
dei poveri e degli storpi che
giravano a lungo per le vie ed i
vicoli di ogni citta, ricoperti di
stracci multicolori e con il viso
celato da orride maschere.
Soprattutto in Francia, dal
1200 in avanti le manifesta-
zioni carnevalesche assunsero
un ritmo sfrenato e furono
caratterizzate da ogni specie di
eccessi: basti dire che perfino
un Re, Carlo VI, venne assassi-
nato mentre danzava travestito
da orso.
In Italia, invece, i festeggia-
menti si svolgevano in modo
piu tranquillo ed erano im-
prontati, anzich6 alle volgarita
e alle grottesche parodie, in
una cornice di ricchi costumi
e di rappresentazioni tradizio-
nali che richiamavano un vasto
pubblico anche da oltralpe.
Nel 1800 il Carnevale aveva
gia mutato volto, assumendo
una diverse raffinatezza, una
piu leggera impostazione. Ce-
lebri restarono le manifesta-
zioni che si svolsero a Roma
nel 1805 e culminarono nella
splendid mascherata di Casa
Chigi dedicate al "Concilio
degli Dei".
I1 Belli che a quell'epoca
aveva solo 14 anni, immortal
in una series di bozzetti il popolo
romano di allora che sfilava
per il "Corso" e si raccoglieva
sullo "scalinone" di Casa Ru-
spoli per assistere al passaggio
della "mossa" o alla corsa dei
barberri.
Cosi tra il fast della vec-
chia society soprawissuta al
feudalesimo e i grand avveni-
menti politics che scuotevano
l'assetto dell'Europa, il 1800
celebrava il suo carnevale.
Con la fine del secolo si spe-
gneva la luccicante follia che
fino allora aveva caratterizzato
questo period dell'anno; qual-
che settimana di allegria scate-
nata e di oblio prima dell'inizio
della parentesi di penitente
grigiore della Quaresima.
Oggi di questa secolare
tradizione rimane ben poco e
per ritrovare l'atmosfera degli
indiavolati carnevali del pas-
sato non ci resta che ricorrere
alle suggestive pagine scritte
da Goethe che mette in evi-
denza il carattere eccezionale
di questa festa che la rendeva
diverse da tutte le altre feste in
quanto tutti si consideravano
uguali abolendo ogni distanza.
Per Goethe II Carnevale di
Roma non e una festa che si
offre al popolo ma bensi una
festa che il popolo offre a se
stesso" e i romani festeggia-
vano il carnevale travestiti
con costumi multicolori che
rappresentavano i mestieri piu
comuni: il medico, l'avvocato,
la popolana.
Era l'occasione in cui ci si
scambiava i ruoli: il ricco si
vestiva da povero, il povero
da ricco. Coriandoli di gesso,
stravaganti pettinature e riti
bizzarri completavano il rituale
carnevalesco di Roma.
Veniva organizzata anche la
"gara dei moccoletti" i roman
si aggiravano per le strade
della citta con una candela in
mano cercando di spegnere le
candele altrui.
Altri nomi illustri come Ge-
oge Sand, Madame de Stael,
Byron, Giuseppe Gioacchino
Belli e quanti altri, hanno
saputo fissare sulla carta la
giocosa spensieratezza del
carnevale e della "festa delle
maschere" in Italia e in tutta

still place third. Ed Turanchik
gets fourth and Tom Scott trails
the field.
Tampa City Council
District 1 (citywide)
This race has five candidates vy-
ing to replace Gwen Miller. Mike
Suarez seems to have the most
momentum. He received both
major newspaper endorsements, is
backed by a lot of Democrats and
has performed well. We see him
going to a runoff. His opponent in
the runoff is harder to pick. Curtis
Stokes should have a base in the
African-American community.
Rick Barcena has worked hard
and has some name-recognition
from his run in 2007. Tom Slaugh-
ter is mostly unknown, but is the
only non-minority in the race
with an Anglo last name, and that
can be worth some points. Guido
Maniscalco has been running the
longest and has shaken the most
hands. We think it's a tight race
for second between Stokes and
Barcena. Having three Latins in
the race divides that base and
that could handicap Barcena, giv-
ing Stokes the edge to get in the
runoff.
District 2 (citywide)
This is one of two races we see
being settled in the first election.
Mary Mulhern will have a large
lead over her two opponents, Scott
Strepina and Susan Long. We see
Strepina placing second with the
help of a Republican base.
District 3 (citywide)
This is one of the toughest races
to predict since each candidate
has unique strengths. The only
person's ranking we feel comfort-
able predicting is Michael Ciftci's,
who we think will place last. He's
run into nothing but problems
since announcing. The only good
thing that happened was his en-
dorsement by the Florida Sentinel
Bulletin, the Black-owned and
targeted publication, but that
could be at issue after a St. Pe-
tersburg Times article identified
that Ciftci's organization received
$100,000 from the state of Florida
to help the people of Haiti. The
article read that the only help de-
livered to the earthquake-wrecked
island nation was light bulbs.
Most of the money went to salaries
of Ciftci and his friends. We think
the top three vote-getters, in no
particular order, will be: Yvonne
"Yolie" Capin, whose strengths
are that she is the only woman in
the race, she currently serves on
council and ran in 2008 for state
representative. Her weakness is
that she originally told council
that she wouldn't run, but she did.
Seth Nelson has the endorse-
ment of the Times, La Gaceta,
firefighters and police. He enjoys a
base in the Jewish and legal com-
munities and has run for the seat
the longest.
Rounding out the top three is
Jason Wilson, who got the Tribune
endorsement. We believe two of
these three will go to a runoff.
Chris Hart's announcement
was met with some fanfare, but
the former county commissioner
got in very late and has not run a
vigorous campaign.
District 4 (South Tampa)
This race features five good
candidates: Joseph Citro, Harry
Cohen, Tony DeSisto, Julie Jen-
kins and Dennis Meyers. We
believe Harry Cohen is leading.


He received all the newspaper
endorsements, raised the most
money and has run the most ef-
fective campaign. But with five
candidates, it's hard to believe
that he won't face a runoff. Being
the only woman candidate in a
race where more women will vote
than men has us thinking Julie
Jenkins comes in second. She has
a following in the community and
has run for this seat before.
District 5 (East Tampa)
Frank Reddick takes first place.
He got the endorsement of the
Florida Sentinel, La Gaceta and
the Tampa Tribune. He's run for
office before and is well-known
in the community. He'll have a
healthy lead, but we still think it
goes to a runoff.
The fight for second place is be-
tween Carroll "Carrie" West, the
only white candidate in the four-
person race, and Lynette Tracee
Judge, the only woman in the
group. We think West will have a
base in Ybor and in the Seminole
Heights and Sulphur Springs ar-
eas of the district. That base could
give him the edge to take second.
District 6 (West Tampa)
This race is definitely not going
to a runoff since it has only two
candidates.
Charlie Miranda wins in a land-
slide. Kelly Benjamin remains
befuddled as to why he can't make
any headway against a man who
doesn't raise much money, doesn't
go to all the events, isn't politically
correct and won't use a computer.
District 7 (North Tampa)
This is the only race where we
see a bona fide incumbent not
placing first. The leader in our
estimation is Lisa Montelione.
She received all the newspaper
endorsements and is the only
woman in the race. We think Dean
Hale will place last. That leaves
incumbent Joseph Caetano and
Charles "Charlie" Perkins fighting
to get in the runoff. Caetano as an
incumbent should have a base, but
his press over the last few years
- has not been good. Perkins has
a strong race door-to-door in the
district except in New Tampa,
where you can't get into the gated
communities. We'll flip a coin and
guess Caetano places second and
gets into the runoff.
Referendum
"Yes" will win the day allowing
Tampa to grant certain property
tax exemptions to new and ex-
panding businesses.

Last week we ran out of room
and didn't endorse on the refer-
endum appearing on Tampa's
election ballot. It's titled "Eco-
nomic Development Property Tax
Exemptions for New Businesses
and Expansions of Existing Busi-
nesses". A "Yes" vote would allow
the city to grant exemptions to a
business' expansion of its building,
for a new building, land improve-
ment and new equipment.
The exemption would only ap-
ply to certain types of businesses
and newly created property value
increases. For example, if a new
business were to buy an empty lot,
the lot would not qualify for the
exemption, but the new construc-
tion on it would.
We find this a reasonable tool to
incentivize business growth and to
lure relocations.

Florida Senate President Mike
Hardipolos is thrilled that his
"Health Care Freedom Act" is
one step closer to becoming part
of the constitution. The act is just
an attempt to prevent any type of
universal/mandatory health care
program from benefiting Florid-
ians.
That's the scary part. The funny
part is when Hardipolos says that
Floridians can currently make
their own health care choices.
There really is very little pa-
tient choice in our current system.
If you have surgery, do you get
to choose your anesthesiologist
or the rest of your surgery team?
Can you choose your nurse? Has
Hardipolos ever tried to get extra
days of rehab?
Your insurance requires that
you take certain diagnostic tests

before you can take advantage of
more advanced/expensive ones,

room for a new patient. Need a
specialist? Try to get a quick ap-
pointment from your insurance's
short list of MDs. The decision
normally comes down to who has
the first available appointment -
will you wait one month or three?
See if the ambulance takes you
to the hospital of your choice or
the closest one.

The Coalition of Immokalee
Workers will hold a rally and
march on Saturday, March-5.
The event is to encourage Publix
to accept an extra penny a pound
for tomatoes from its consumers to
be passed on to the farm workers
who perform the back-breaking
work in Florida fields. After many
years, the farm workers have re-
ceived cooperation from Taco Bell,
McDonald's, Subway and Whole
Foods, but Publix has refused by
saying the company can't get in-
volved in a labor issue regarding
an individual product they sell.
As a Publix consumer, I am
happy to pay an extra penny a
pound for tomatoes and wish
Publix would sit down with the
farm workers. I met George Jen-
kins, the founder of Publix, many
times. He ran his business guided
by Christian values. We think, as
a consumer, Mr. Jenkins would
also want to pay an extra penny to
improve the lives of others.
The rally is at 2 p.m. at the Pub-
lix at 1313 S. Dale Mabry. Go to
www.ciw-online.org/dotherightth-
ing for more information about the
marches that will start at different
Publix locations in Tampa and end
at the rally.

Judge Herb Berkowitz' inves-
titure ceremony will be held on
March 11 from 1 to 1:30 p.m. in
Courtroom One at the Hillsbor-
ough County Courthouse. The
reception is from 5 to 7 p.m. at
Stetson Law's Tampa Law Center,
1700 N. Tampa St.

Our condolences to our friend Al
Fox on the passing of his mother,
Luisa Fox, 92, on February 20.
He shared with us that she used
to make a gift of La Gaceta to him
when he moved to Washington,
D.C.

Not All Hail Rail in


Downtown Tampa will
have its high-speed rail sta-
tion sometime between 2015
and never. But on Monday at
high noon it had high-decibel,
albeit civil, railing about the
prospects. A last-minute rally
for frustrated, high-speed rail
proponents was countered by
demonstrators, including Tea
Partiers and No Tax for Track-
sters, who support Gov. Rick
Scott for his recent rejection
of $2.4 billion in previously
proffered federal funds. It was
Tampa's own vent city re-
plete with chants of "We want


rail" and "Why not here, why
not now?"
In reality, this was more of
a play within a play. One that
is ultimately being scripted by
Scott who seems pre-deter-
mined to stick with his pro-Tea
Party, anti-Obama-screed-in-
the-guise-of-fiscal-prudence.
Scott, the 800-pound gorilla in
the roadbed, seems adamant
that no scenario from a re-
gional, umbrella-group sub-
grantee to the eight private-
sector bids due next month
- will change his mind about
Florida taxpayers being "on

the hook" for unforeseen costs.
Even U.S. Rep. Kathy Castor,
a key behind-the-scenes play-
er, acknowledged that all the
expeditious, legal scrambling
could only be successful "if
the governor co-operates." The
state, for example, would still
have to grant any newly-cob-
bled, independent agency the
right-of-way along the Tampa-
Orlando route.
Sobering. But even a
stopped watch is right twice
a day. Hope lives, even if on
a political ventilator. Reces-
sion-addressing jobs, an I-4
alternative and 21st century
competitiveness still make a
compelling case.
The scene: outside City
Hall at Kennedy Boulevard
and Franklin Street. On one
side of Kennedy were those
lionizing Scott for jettisoning
high-speed rail. Maybe 100 in
number. Their signs ranged
from the ideologically routine
- "Stop the Spending" and "We
Can't Afford It" to the ideo-
logically bizarre "Marxists
Push Train Transit, But We
Don't Buy The Lies" (more on
that later). Even a guy dressed
as the Grim Reaper toting a
"Death To High-Speed Rail"
sign (more on him later too).
Across from the "We Stand
With Gov. Scott" crowd were
gathered the pro-rail advo-
cates. Perhaps 200 ranging
from Congresswoman Castor
to mayoral candidates Ed Tur-
anchik and Tom Scott. Here a
Mary Mulhern and Yoli Capin,
there a Kelly Benjamin and
Julie Jenkins. Plus a couple of
bullhorns and plenty of signs
- ranging from the economi-
cally themed to pure outrage.
From "Rail = Jobs," "Don't De-
rail Florida's Future" and "'Get
To Work' Creating Jobs, Not
Killing Jobs" to "Lose Scott,
Keep The Train," "Untrained


private enterprises -from start-ups to
Fortune 500 companies. Our lawyers
know Florida's economy, its history,
and its business and political leaders.
From real estate, corporate, bankruptcy
and health law to commercial and
complex litigation, our clients are our
most important priority, and we strive
to be their most important resource.


Governor Equals 20,000 Few-
er Jobs" and "Rick Scott is a
Tea-Bagging Idiot." And for
good measure, "NY and Calif.
Win, Floriduh Loses."
Yeah, "Floriduh" is back.
And New York and California
are ready to pounce on "found
money."
Among those taking turns
with the bullhorn was Turan-
chik. With City Hall as a back-
drop and flanked by enthusi-
astic true believers united for
a visionary cause, he couldn't
have ordered up a better video
- or-photo op. "This is about
20,000 jobs for people who
don't have jobs," he bellowed
to cheers and jeers.
Farah Stokes, 57, was
among the converted being
preached to. She carried a
"Yes: Rail, No: Scott" sign. The
South Tampa resident said
part of it was "getting traffic off
of 1-4. It's endless. And we lose
the potential for convincing
businesses and jobs to move
here."
For Laraine Hancock, 64, a
retired pharmaceutical execu-
tive who lives in South Tampa,
it's about trust as well as eco-
nomics. "I think the governor
had his mind made up before-
he took office, she said. "He-
never waited for the bids. Now
our ability to add jobs in the
short term and redevelopment
along the [1-4] corridor is un-
dermined."
Then there was Michael
Capria, 58, a chiropractor
from Carrollwood. He had the
aforementioned Marxist taunt,
one designed to attract media
attention. Obviously it worked.
"The density just isn't there
for this train," he explained.
"So you have to change the
zoning [to residential] to make
rail work. Which is what East
Germany did in Berlin. The so-
cialist model is to force people
to live in high-density environ-
ments."
Under that Grim Reaper
costume was David Brown,
73, of Sun City Center. He
actually crossed Kennedy 'to
get closer to the bullhorned
speakers. "They already have
a train; it's called Amtrak,"
noted Brown. "And I'm. just
afraid that if this were to pass,
when you look ahead, who will
be stuck paying the costs 10-
15 years from now?"
The final word goes to
someone who was there in
spirit and in symbol: City


Hall. Tampa Mayor Pam Iorio
is still playing an active, save-
high-speed-rail role and par-
ticipated in a conference call
with elected officials includ-
ing her mayoral counterparts
in Orlando and Lakeland -
and media earlier in the day.
But her words in response to
Scott's initial rejection of high-
speed rail funds still echo.
"This project was about
21st century investments,"
underscored Iorio. "How do we
get around the state of Flori-
da in the coming decades? ...
This would have produced an
alternative method of trans-
portation that linked all of
our major metropolitan areas
- Tampa, Orlando, Miami and
Jacksonville. The alternative
is the status quo, -which re-
ally means that our state goes
backwards. This is unaccept-
able."
As unacceptable as ideol-
ogy-driven arrogance. As un-
acceptable as cherry-picked,
skewed data. As unacceptable
as "'Floriduh,' the Sequel." As
unacceptable as a high-speed
railroading of this city's, this
region's and this state's fu-
ture.
And a final thought. Given
his seemingly irreconcilable
cost-overrun and liability
fears, maybe Scott just doesn't
trust the private sector. Won-
der why?
Tiger Bay Views
If it's Friday, it must be -
yet another of the countless
mayoral forums now playing
out across the political land-
scape. This day it was the Ti-
ger Bay Club of Tampa host-
ing the five-candidate road
show. It made no headlines. It
was gaffe free.
For those paying attention,
the candidates have largely
made their cases. And this
much seems evident: All are
smart and experienced. A lot
of cities would settle for that.
And all have established their
identities. Have they ever.
Dick Greco and Rose Fer-
lita have iconic Tampa names;
the former even has his own
statue. Greco can say what no
other candidate can say: "I've
done it." Or, to be more spe-
cific: "I've done it, gang." Fer-
lita, she reminds us, is about
"transparency and integrity."
Ed Turanchik has tran-
sitioned from intellectual
dreamer to "pragmatic vision-

for two years as its youngest-
ever president. "It's a great

says. "It's really a platform for
cultures to connect and do
business together."
While president of the cham-
ber, he founded the India Inter-
national Film Fest. At first, his
chamber comrades questioned
what a film festival had to do
with business. He
Ikai explained that it is

Vayalumkal.
This past week-
end was the film
fest's second year
and was quite the
success. They had
80 films submitted
for consideration,
which Vayalumkal
watched, critiqued
and helped narrow
down to 27 indepen-
Sbecause dent and regional
films about Indian
subject matter. Twenty film-
makers came to Tampa to
attend the festival as well as
guests who visited the area to
view the films at Channelside,
where there was even a Bol-
lywood dance workshop that
got everyone in Channelside
together to dance.
Vayalumkal insisted that
the films in the festival repre-
sent a diverse perspective of
Indian film, the largest film in-
dustry on the planet. A nation
of 22 official languages and
hundreds of dialects, India has
a number of full-blown produc-
tion industries in various lan-
guages among its states. Just
as American film is more than
just Hollywood, Indian film is
more than just Bollywood.
When he's not running his
own business or in charge of a
three-day film fest, Vayalumkal
also enjoys dragon boat racing
- a 20-person boat in which
everyone paddles together with
one drummer in front.
He even founded a dragon
boat race for the Asian-Indian
community to carry on the
tradition of snake boat races in
Kerala. The event, Champions
Trophy Boat Race, completed
its third year and has teams at-
tending from New York, Miami
and Tampa Bay.
"It's a great team-building
activity. I love to be in teams
and I love to lead teams. I be-
lieve that every success that
comes is because of the team
I have with me," he says.
From presiding over school
associations to a Tampa Bay
chamber and his own busi-
ness, Vayalumkal is certainly a
team player. He's made Tampa
Bay his chosen home and
looks forward to helping the
area prosper while integrating
cultures. "I believe in actively
being involved in the commu-
nity and pursuing initiatives
that make a difference."


'I,


ARIES (March 21 to April
19): You might feel more en-
couraged about changes in
your personal and/or profes-
sional life. However, it might
be best not to rush things but
rather work with them as they
evolve.
TAURUS (April 20 to May
20): The Bovine's business
sense is especially keen this
week. But remember that
it's always best to investigate
before investing. Make sure
there are no hidden factors
that can rise up later on.
GEMINI (May 21 to June 20:
Working on a family project
could create tension between
and among those concerned.
Your good sense and your pa-
tience can help reduce bad
attitudes and raise positive
feelings.
CANCER (June 21 to July
22): You should be seeing more
progress in the development of
your plans and more support-
ers joining in. News from the
past could help change some-
one's long-held position.
LEO (July 23 to August 22):
With personal aspects strong
this week, Leos and Leonas
might want to spend more
time with family and others
who are especially close to
them. Also expect news of a
possible career change.
VIRGO (August 23 to Sep-
tember 22): Taking a strong
stand can be helpful this
week. But be careful you don't
cross the line into obstinacy.
Best to take a position on
facts as they are, not as you
want them to be.
LIBRA (September 23 to Oc-
tober 22): You have a strong


sense of the needs of others.
This week, turn some of that
sensitivity into an honest self-
appraisal, and let it find places
where you can help yourself.
SCORPIO (October 23 to No-
vember 21): Creating an emo-
tional comfort zone to handle
a personal problem helps at
first. But by mid-week, you'll
realize you need to deal with
it directly or it could linger for
too long.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22
to December 21): Turning
the page on a mistake to start
fresh might not be the thing to
do. Better to go over each step
that led up to the decision you
made and see which one mis-
led you.
CAPRICORN (December 22
to January 19): Goats enjoy
a varied diet, but eating crow
isn't on the menu at least
not this week. An embarrass-
ing situation might have gone
wrong before you got into it.
Check it out.
AQUARIUS (January 20 to
February 18): Your sense of
honesty might impel you to
speak up about a situation
you disapprove of. That's fine.
But do so without sounding
accusatory. You might not
know all the facts behind it.
PISCES (February 19 to
March 20): Being asked to
create a reassuring attitude in
the middle of chaos isn't easy,
but you can do it. Support for
your efforts comes slowly, but
it does come. Enjoy an arts-
filled weekend.
BORN THIS WEEK: Your
honesty about people and is-
sues is expressed in a posi-
tive, not painful, way.

S Tampa Bay's inaugural Pet-a-Palooza will
take place Sunday, March 13, at 12 p.m. in
Coachman Park, located at 301 Drew St. in
Clearwater. Over 40 different animal rescue groups and non-
profit organizations will be on-site. There will be plenty of
adoptable animals, food, live music and animal exhibits. Tick-
ets are $10 for humans; well-behaved pets are admitted for
free. Call 727-562-4700 for more information.

Did you hear about the recently elected president of the
Hillbrook-Tall Oaks Civic Association in Annandale, Virginia?
She has earned a reputation for being quite a bitch.
Ms. Beatha Lee, whose name presumably comes from the
Irish masculine-gendered noun meaning "life" (there is also a
Scottish Gaelic term "beathach" which means beast or animal),
is actually a Wheaten Terrier and the pet of former Civic As-
sociation President Mark
Crawford who had-
much to his chagrin, it
seems-termed out as
president. As reported :
in the Washington Post,
the dog was described b
to voters as a new resi-
dent with an interest in r
neighborhood activities
and the outdoors, who
had experience oversee- l
ing an estate of 26 acres
in Maine. A Wheaten Terrier in a wheat field.
The result was unani- Photo by Ross Thornley
mous-fifty people voted
for her, and apparently none of them were aware Beatha is a
dog, Even worse, no one noticed until it was revealed in the
association's newsletter a few weeks later. What's that idiom
about wagging the dog?
Phone calls to Ms. Lee's kennel were not returned in time
for press. ****
A stray emu was found eating strawberries in Plant City.
The big bird was impounded by the Hillsborough County
Sheriffs Office and is being held for $135. If not redeemed
within three days, the emu will be publicly auctioned to the
highest or best bidder at All Stock Animal Auction.
A source at the Sheriffs Office described the emu as friend-
ly and very tame. Officers had no trouble walking up to him
and petting him.
If not sold at auction, he will be sent off and most likely
killed and used for culinary purposes.
This is not the first time an emu has been found wandering
around- Hillsborough County. A previous emu vagabond was
sold at auction for less than $100.
So if you have the land and the means and you're looking
for a new pet, a friendly emu may be the perfect addition to
your family. Save the emu!

SWHATS HAPPENING
in Old Yb1r
by Adam Jahr


Fiesta Day 2011
The Ybor City Chamber of
Commerce will host its 64th
Annual Fiesta Day on Satur-
day, February 26 from 11:00
a.m. to 6:00 p.m. This tradi-
tional event harkens back to
the "verbena" or mass-picnic
held by Ybor's cigar workers
as a day of rest. Each group
of Cuban, Spanish, Italian,
German and Romanian im-
migrants provided a compo-
nent of this eclectic, cultural
celebration.
The Ybor City Chamber
has focused on four key ele-
ments to return greater au-
thenticity to this free, family-
oriented street festival: Ybor
cuisine, local art, Latin music
and full-participation of our
unique cultural institutions.
Examples of "gourmet
street food" will include: Ber-
nini's Italian steak sandwich-
es;. Carmine's deviled crabs
and the Columbia's Spanish
paella.
Arte de Ybor will include
not only a "creative retail"
such as Wear Me Out's cus-
tom-designed purses and
Singing Stone's contempo-
rary "art as jewelry," but also
craftsmen from around the
Bay Area and a juried-art
show for up and coming, fine
artists will be held in the spa-
cious new facilities of the Rel-
evant Church, one of Ybor's
dynamic "urban churches."
Get ready to dance in the
streets! Top Bay Area Latin
Bands will be playing on the
Maxima 92.5 Main Stage.
Javier Sambas Flamen-
cas, Danny Lozada's salsa
sounds and Supernatural, a
nationally-booked Santana
tribute band, will bring out
"the Latino" in everyone. Lo-
cal arts magnet-schools and
the HCC Jazz Ensemble will
also be featured on the Centro
Ybor Youth Stage.
Last, but by no means
least, is the participation
of Ybor City's unique social
clubs: the Cuban Club, Cen-
tro Asturiano, Marti-Maceo,
the Italian Club and the Ybor
City Museum and State Park.

Preserving Ybor Square


As the Church of Scientol-
ogy moves into Ybor Square,
whose residents include the
Spaghetti Warehouse and
Creative Loafing, it is finding
historic furniture and archi-
tectural embellishments. The
church is working to restore
these discoveries in order to
maintain the look and respect
the history of one of the city's
most notable historic build-
ings, which used to house a
cigar factory.
Here are some photos.

Tin ceilings were introduced to North America as an af-
fordable alternative to exquisite European plasterwork.

This press was used to help form and dry cigars, which
were put into wooden trays then into the hand-turned
press. After being pressed, the ragged ends of the cigars
were trimmed. The nearly complete cigars were turned
over to a Master Roller, who gave the cigar its final wrap-
per leaf and finished the ends.

Hundreds of cigar makers in this factory used rolling

was an elite member of Ybor Society; it took an average
of three years of training before a craftsman would have
the honor to sit at a table like this.

While her work hatches
from artistic inspiration, she
likes the psychological impli-

of her compositions. The short
story is about a woman locked

be heard echoing throughout
her space, playing with the
audience's senses as they ogle

"If we were to be in the jun-
gle, cicadas make a tremen-

Admiration clings to her
tone as Angus discusses the
miniature world of insects
and the societies in which
they operate. For an ironic
effect, she's placed anthropo-
morphized insects in a house,
posed in time-frozen hominid
acts with tiny human figu-
rines as "pets". While its pe-
culiarity strikes her audience
as comical, she seems to be
questioning the societal effi-
ciency of our species. For in-
stance, bees operate in a per-
fect utilitarian society, so do
ants each member having
his or her role. Together, they
act for the good of the whole.
"Maybe we could learn
something from them," says
Angus.

The older I get, the more I
realize that perhaps the most
profound quote ever written
or spoken came from the pen
of John Hughes and from the
mouth of Matthew Broderick
as Ferris Bueller: "Life moves
pretty fast. If you don't stop
and look around once in a
while, you could miss it."
Life has moved pretty
fast for me over the past 10
months and two days. (Yes, I
am that guy. I know exactly
how many days Amy and I
have been together.)
A year ago, I was in a love-
less relationship with a blonde
bimbo. Note to blonde bimbo:
You cannot sue for libel if
what I print is true.
A year ago, I worked 18
hours a day and could do so
with no guilt. My only respon-
sibilities were walking my dog
twice a day and playing flag
football and softball.
A year ago, I could sleep
in whenever I wanted or lie
on the couch and watch the
same episode of SportsCenter
four or five straight times.
A year ago, I never had to
miss a major sporting event
on television to watch Dora
the Explorer.
A year ago, Friday and Sat-
urday nights at the bar were
the norm; they were expected.
A year ago, I did not need
to check if a baby sitter was
available before I made plans.
A year ago, I could eat junk
food on my couch whenever I
wanted. I never had to worry
about setting a bad example
for kids.
A year ago, I could curse
like a sailor around my home
without a twinge of guilt.
A year ago, I never had to
worry about someone bust-
ing into the bathroom as I sat
on my throne, asking me if I
could play with them when I
was done.
A year ago, I had no idea
that Walmart could be such a
scary place to visit.
A year ago, I could honestly
say that someone else's poop
or pee had never touched my
hands and that I had never
wiped anyone's butt except
my own.
A year ago, I never skipped
the gym.
A year ago, my dog was not

a problem. There was no one
in my home tugging on her
ears or pulling her tail whom I
feared she would bite.
A year ago, a life in the sub-
urbs was a laughable notion
to me.
A year ago, my name was
synonymous in my circle of
friends with the phrase "single
for life."
A year ago, climbing a tree
was not regular activity.
A year ago, waking up at
8 a.m. to watch tee ball was
laughable.
A year ago, a Christmas
tree seemed like a silly ex-
pense.
A year ago, Gasparilla was
my Christmas morning.
A year ago, I had no idea
what an "ex-law" was.
A year ago, my only con-
cern was myself.
A year ago, I told people I
didn't care if I ever got mar-
ried or had kids and I meant
it.
A year ago I was not as
happy as I am now.
Today, I live with my wife-
to-be and my two step-chil-
dren-to-be. Life has certainly
changed and changed FAST.
Some of my readers have
commented to me that my
current situation seems like a
sitcom. Take a lifelong bache-
lor and workaholic, throw him
in a home overnight with a
fiancee and her two children,
and watch hilarity ensue.
Well, if my life is a sitcom,
then ladies and gentleman
welcome to sweeps week, the
time of year when every televi-
sion show introduces a major
plotline in hopes of garnering
that week's highest rating. Or
perhaps this is my sitcom's
"jump the shark" moment,
that moment when a dying
television series comes up
with a new and crazy plotline,
hoping of winning back its
lost viewers. Or perhaps this
is just life...
Amy and I are having a.son
... I am having a biological
son.
Yeah, you read that right.
AMY AND I ARE HAVING A
BABY.
*Cut to commercial break
so the viewers of my sitcom
have a moment to digest that
new plotline.*
Yes. Life moves pretty fast.
A year ago I was single. Come
July 28, I will have three chil-
dren. Wow! (Yes, July 28. Amy
is almost 18 weeks pregnant.)
On July 28, I will have a
whole new laundry list of is-
sues with which to deal. My
list will not include the regu-
lar bullet points about which
most new fathers worry. I am
not worried about changing
diapers or whether or not I am
ready to raise a child or how a


child will suddenly affect my
life. I have already dealt with
and moved past those issues.
My list is much more compli-
cated:
Will I shower my biologi-
cal child with too much love
and make my step-children
feel left out? I don't want to,
and I hope I do not act so self-
ishly. I would not do some-
thing like that on purpose.
But, I have never had a piece
of myself sitting on my lap be-
fore. I have no idea how I will
subconsciously act.
Will I shower my step-
children with too much love
and not give enough to my
own child? This is also pos-
sible. I may make such a con-
certed effort to make them feel
loved that I ignore my own
child.
How will my step-children
accept this new baby? They
are aware that he is coming
and seem happy about having
a new sibling, but once their
mother's love has to be shared
by yet another new face in the
home, a face that is not 100
percent related to them, how
will they react? They have
already had to accept the
fact there is a third party in
the home me whom their
mother now loves. How will
they react to a fourth?
Will my step-children ac-
cept my biological son as their
full sibling or will they treat
him like an outsider? Amy's
children already have a close
bond. Will they feel so threat-
ened by a half-brother that
they will lash out at him and
never accept him, or will they
accept him with the same type
of love with which they have
accepted me?
How will my son react
when the ex-laws come to
town and take Amy's children
out on the town for fun and he
is not invited?
How will my son react
when his brother and sister's
father comes back into the
picture and takes them out on
the town for fun, and he is not
invited?
How will my family treat
my step-children? It is easy
to bond with a blood relative.
Bonding with a non-blood rel-
ative is tougher. Will my fam-
ily subconsciously ignore my
step-children and shower my
son with love?
Will having separate
blood families in the picture
create a rift between the three
of them?
And so on. I could list my
fears for another 10 million
words if I were so inclined.
I can't begin to tell you how
excited I am to have a child on
the way. I dream every night
of what he will look like and
be like. All I want to talk about


The Overniht Family Man

wI by Paul Guzzo


with my friends and family is
the upcoming birth of my son.
Yet, I am also scared.
There are so many issues with
which I will have to deal. Nor-
mally, fathers go to their own
father for advice. With Amy's
children, that is exactly what I
have done. Whenever I have a
question about being a father,
I call my dad. Hell, whenever
I have a question about any-
thing in life I call my dad for
advice.
I have never had to deal
with anything in my life with-
out the help of my father. But
my father never had to deal
with a situation such as this.
He cannot dispense advice
upon me this time.

Wild swine captured by a trail camera


A business that does not
innovate, create or expand its
product line is doomed to fail-
ure. Competition is the driv-
ing force of those elements.
The business portion of
hunting must, like most any
other entrepreneurial endeav-
or, continuously seek new
products and new market op-
portunities. Thus, new cali-
bers, new telescopes, synthet-
ic stocks for rifles have added
unheard off dimensions to the
sport. Camouflage clothing
has evolved from the old army
fatigues generated during WW
II, to a new dimension of out-
door concealment. Specialized
clothing to mask the hunter's
body odor have emerged and
become immensely popular.
Ditto with footwear. Water
proof, snake proof, insulat-
ed, zipper closures and soles
for every occasion as well as
camouflaged are just some
of the innovations that have
kept that end of the business
going. And the advent of the
ThermaCell mosquito repel-
lent little gizmos make it pos-
sible to sit in the woods with-
out a single swat at bugs.
One of the most fascinating
innovations in the hunting
scene has been the trail cam-
era. Those little boxes that
spy on game have become the
hunter's new item to have."
They have evolved from boxy
film cameras to modern digi-


tal models that capture the
movement of animals day or
night.
The original trail cameras
utilized different types of trip-
ping devices to activate the
cameras of the times. They
were mostly limited to a one
shot at the time sequence
as well as to the number of
frames in the film (a maxi-
mum of 36). According to
history, George Shiras first
used trail cameras in the late
1880s. In 1906, National Geo-
graphic published the first
trail camera photos using Shi-
ras' Michigan wildlife shots.
The electronic game cam-
eras of today are capable of
taking hundreds of pictures.
They store the images in mem-
ory chips whose capacities are
calculated in gigabytes.
They have been immensely
helpful in wildlife studies to
determine the health of the
different herds. For the sports
person they disclose the
quantity, quality and diversity
of the animals in a given area.
And for the art lover, they pro-
vide incredible images to be
preserved in various ways.
The modern trail camera
has also generated a new mar-
ket for a product that is still in
its infancy. We expect the ap-
plications of this new devices
to further expand in use as
new technology evolves.

Amy and I are alone on this
one. There is no one in our
lives who knows the proper
ways to handle this situation.
I realize that together we
will make it through any
tough times ahead. I also real-
ize that if I am happier today
than I was a year ago, I will
be even happier this time next
year. But that doesn't change
the fact that I am scared. Real
scared.
Life moves pretty fast. And
it is only getting faster. I just
hope that when I wake up to-
morrow and realize that I am
85 years old that I have no
regrets with how I raised my
children biological and non-
biological.

The Spanishtown Raid:



History Behind the Gasparilla Legend
by Ten Bears


(EDITOR'S NOTE: This is
a semi-fictionalized "histo-
ry" concerning the exploits
of Jose Gaspar. For the true
parts, the writer thanks
Tony Pizzo, Nancy Turner
and the Territorial Papers of
the United States.)
Most Floridians are famil-
iar with the Gasparilla festival
held in Tampa each February
and have at least some knowl-
edge of the buccaneer Jose
Gaspar. The exploits of this
pirate of the early 1800s are
re-enacted in the symbolic in-
vasion of Tampa by the Mystic
Krewe of Gasparilla which has
occurred annually for the last
century. Although the Gaspa-
rilla festival grows bigger and
more festive each year, it is
now generally'concluded that
there never was a swashbuck-
ling pirate named Jose Gaspar
and that the pirate invasion of
Tampa never really happened.
Nevertheless, many myths
have some foundation in his-
torical fact and the Gasparilla
legend is no exception. The
Jose Gaspar story was de-
bunked as fiction some time
ago and, since then, there
has been little or no serious
investigation of the era or the
activities which gave rise to
the story in the first place.
The fact that there was such
a pirate although his name
was not exactly Jose Gaspar
and he was more a strong arm
robber than a pirate. The fur-
ther fact is that there was an
invasion of Tampa although
it was more a robbery attempt
than a pirate invasion and
it was not exactly in Tampa,
since Tampa did not exist at
the time. There are two basic
reasons why the true history
has not been previously told.
The first is that exposure of
the Gasparilla story as a fic-
tional tale made it almost im-
possible for any historian to


conduct serious research for
fear of being hooted off the
academic stage. The second
reason is that no one really
knew where to look and it is
only by accident that the facts
have been discovered.
The following account is in-
tended as a preliminary infor-
mational paper only. It does
not pretend to be a scholarly
account and will not be sub-
mitted, in its present format,
to any peer reviewed publi-
cations. However, research
done to date provides an in-
teresting insight into the his-
tory of the Tampa Bay area
during the early 1800s and,
upon completion of follow-up
research, it is expected that a
more complete and annotated
study will be published.
I. The Gasparilla Myth
Although this is not intend-
ed as a vehicle for retelling the
time honored Gasparilla tale,
a basic summary of that story
is helpful as it provides a con-
text in time and place. Fur-
ther, since only a legend has
survived in the public con-
sciousness, it is helpful to es-
tablish a base line of fiction so
the actual story can then be
separated from the yarn.
There are a number of vari-
ations to the Gasparilla story,
but a reasonable composite
is the following: Jose Gas-
par was a Spaniard of noble
blood who served as a high
ranking officer in the Span-
ish navy. He left the service of
the Spanish king in bitterness
after being passed over for
promotion (or after his fiance
was killed, or after he was not
allowed to marry his true love
or after he was caught steal-
ing, take your pick). He fled
to the Americas and took up
piracy on the west coast of
the Spanish colony of Florida.
As a leader of a large pirate
band, he plundered treasure


ships during the early 1800s,
amassing a fortune of over 30
million dollars. He adopted
the name "Gasparilla" and
established a pirate base on
what came to be known as
Gasparilla Island. He would
often seize hostages, particu-
larly young women, and hold
them for ransom on an island
which came to be called Cap-
tiva Island, in recognition of
the captives he kept there. In
1822, Gasparilla resolved to
retire from the life of piracy.
However, when he spied a
Spanish trade ship approach-
ing, he decided to plunder one
last ship and sailed out to at-
tack the merchant vessel. Un-


fortunately, the ship turned
out to be the America warship
"Enterprise" (commanded, no
doubt, by Commodore James
Kirk) which promptly coun-
terattacked. In fierce fighting,
Gasparilla was about to be
captured or killed. He grabbed
a length of anchor chain,
wrapped it around his body
and, crying "Gasparilla dies
by his own hand and not by
that of the enemy!" he jumped
into the sea and drowned. At
some point, his story was kid-
napped from the Port Char-
lotte area to Tampa Bay, and

embellished to include inva-
sion and looting of the city of
Tampa.
A wonderful story, but
none of it is true. We know
this because a number of tut-
tutting historians noticed in-
consistencies in the accounts
of this apocryphal pirate. The
"history" of Jose Gaspar and
his pirate navy did not really
surface until the late 1800s
when an old everglades her-
mit named Juan Gomez be-
gan spinning yarns about his
exploits as a cabin boy (or

The Spanishtown Raid:



History Behind the Gasparilla Legend


(Continued from page 20)
nephew, or first mate) of the
pirate Gasparilla. The stories
were repeated often enough to
be picked up as fact even by
some respected publications
(for example, The Federal
Writers Project work, Florida:
Guide to the Southernmost
State). Our hearts love the
idea of such vivid, if bloody,
history. However, there are
just too many reasons why
this story is not true. Some of
them are:
1. Gasparilla and Captiva
Islands were not named for or
by the pirate Jose Gaspar. We
know this because those is-
land names appear on 'a map
drawn approximately 50 years
prior to the time of Gaspar's
alleged exploits.
2. Just as Jimmy Buffett
found in the 20th century, by
the 19th century there wasn't
much left to plunder. The
Spanish Main wasn't what
it used to be and the giant
Spanish galleons, weighted
down with tons of coins and
precious gems, were as ex-
tinct as the dinosaurs. There
may have still been a few tall
ships making a run on the sil-
ver roads from Veracruz, but
there were not enough trea-
sure ships to support a large
pirate enterprise. Addition-
ally, those ships would have
gone nowhere near Tampa
Bay and Charlotte Harbor,


since there was nothing much
there by way of services, goods
or port facilities to make them
an attractive destination or
way station.
3. Gasparilla did not invade
Tampa because there was no
Tampa. Tampa was incor-
porated in 1855, after it was
originally platted in 1847. It
is true that the term "Tampa"
was sometimes applied to the
area around what we know as
Tampa Bay (it is believed to be
a Calusa Indian term), but it
was not a common name or
predominant term used for
the area during the time of
Gaspar's alleged activities.
4. There is no record of any
"invasion" of any city in the
central gulf coast region dur-
"ing, the late 1700s or early
1800s. The historical fact is
that there was not any force
sufficient to launch any kind
of invasion until the' Ameri-
cans arrived in the early 1820s
to take possession of Florida.
Prior to that time, Spain still
nominally controlled Florida,
having taken it back from the
British in 1783. There was
simply not enough economic
structure to accommodate
and support a large contin-
gent of pirates who would have
had to be fed and clothed and
otherwise kept on life support.
The time and the area barely
allowed support for- honest
citizens working full time to


Ty len Bears
stay alive. Further, there were
no cities. There was a small
village called Spanishtown on
the shore of Tampa Bay (in
the,area now known as Hill-
sborough Bay). That village is
the subject of the historical
account which follows.
5. The pirate Jose Gas-
par did not adopt the name
"Gasparilla". These were hard
times and the men pirate or
not had to be hard men. The
idea that a pirate leader would
adopt the Spanish feminine
diminutive of his own name
is unlikely. Even if we accept
that he existed, Gaspar would
have been a bloodthirsty out-
law, not Alice Cooper or Mari-
lyn Manson.
II. The Historical Perspec-
tive
Though much is just leg-
end, there is, nevertheless, a
real Tampa Bay pirate story.
It is not as dramatic as the
Gasparilla invasion tale, but,
ironically, provides historical
support for the Jose Gaspar
legend. The real story is the
Spanishtown raid which oc-
curred in (or about) 1810.
Initially, two observations
about the difficulty of re-
searching Florida history dur-
ing the late 18th and early
19th centuries must be made.
First, precious little comes
down to us in written form
from that time. An early writer
observed that "there was no


authenticated settlement on
the shore of Tampa Bay for
300 years after the coming
and passing of DeSoto." DeSo-
to passed through Florida in
about 1539. The quoted state-
ment is a bit of an exaggeration
because there are some re-
cords from this time, although
it is fair to say that the period
from 1539 to at least 1822 was
a semi-dark age for the west
coast of peninsular Florida.
Second, writing history
based on the names of places
and people from that time pe-
riod is risky business. It is, of
course, true that the people
with quill pens wrote the his-
tory of this time and most of
the history that comes to us
is from English or American
writers predominately mili-
tary men in the post 1820
era. The fact that people had
access to pen and paper and
that they may have held high
military or civil office does
not mean they could spell.
Thus the names of places and
people were often spelled vari-
ously, sometimes because of
misspellings and sometimes
because different languag-
es were involved, including
Spanish, English and a vari-
ety of indigenous dialects. A
vivid example of the difficul-
ty is found in identifying the
following locations: Espiritu
Santu, Spiritu Santu, Espiritu
Santo, Espiritu Santu Tampa
and La Bahia de San Fernan-
do. These names were all used
during the early 1800's to re-
fer to the same place: what we
now call Tampa Bay.
Likewise, names of people
were often garbled. Ameri-
can military writers were no-
toriously bad at transcrib-
ing Indian names (a problem
which never really improved).
Spanish writers did little bet-
ter and Americans trying to
phonetically transcribe Span-
ish or Indian names (which
they had never seen written)
also caused much confusion.
The same name may have
been written several different
ways by different writers and
names were often abbrevi-
ated. For instance, we know
that during the early 1800s
the following names appeared
in the records for people who
resided in the Tampa Bay
area: Antonio Gastigo, Anto-
nio Giraldo, and Juan Antonio
Gaspardo. It is not known if
these were different people or
the same person whose name
appeared differently in differ-
ent accounts. Significantly,
the name "J. Gaspard." was
noted in reference to a resi-
dent in the Tampa Bay area.
It appeared to be an abbrevia-
tion of the name Juan Antonio
Gaspardo (also seen as Juan
Antonio Gaspardeaux). In any


event, the name is of interest
to those seeking after Jose
Gaspar and may explain how
he could have existed, but
never have been found under
the name which filtered down'
to us a hundred years later.
There is a difference be-
tween creating mythology
and building inferences upon
a historical base. The author
acknowledges that, given the
state of records from this peri-
od, conclusionary jumps have
had to be taken. It is believed
that, based upon the admit-
tedly scanty records avail-
able, Juan Antonio Gaspardo
was an outlaw, that he tried
to rob the settlement known
as Spanishtown and that he
was the person who came to
be known as Jose Gaspar,
pirate extraordinaire. First, a
little history of the time and
place. in.
III. Early 1800s History
As We Know It
In the late 1700's, what civ-
ilization existed in the Tampa
Bay area was primarily the
handiwork of Indians who
were beginning to settle in the
area, and, to a lesser extent,
the Cuban Pescadores who
found ample fishing and shell
fishing grounds in the bay.
There were also a few Spanish
settlers and American adven-
turers working intd the area
as well. The original inhabit-
ants, the Calusa and Tocoba-
gas, had largely succumbed to
disease and the sad march of
history and were, except for,
possibly, a few bands of Calu-
sas, extinct by the time of the
American Revolution. Indi-
ans from a number of south-
ern tribes, predominantly the
Creeks and Choctaws, had fil-
tered down to Florida in small
groups. The bands, not really
separate tribes, were known
variously by the names Micco-
suki, Yuchi, Ocklawaha and
others. Collectively, they were
referred to as Seminoles.
A number of Indian groups
settled in the Tampa Bay area.
There were several small clan
settlements, including one
known as Red Town and an-
other recorded as O-po-nays
Town, which is described as
being on the "back of Tampa
Bay." It appears that these In-
dian groups were, in the late
1700's and early 1800s, suf-
ficiently remote from the po-
litical and military intrigues of
the Spanish, English, Ameri-
cans and northern Seminole
clans to be relatively tranquil.
They grew corn and reportedly
citrus (although it is not clear
that the references to citrus
growing are reliable). Some of
the Indians maintained siz-
able herds of cattle and other
livestock and some fished and

The Spanishtown Raid:



History Behind the Gasparilla Legend
by Ten Bears


(Continued from page 21)
gathered shellfish in the bay
and rivers.
Increasingly, Cuban fisher-
man came to the Tampa Bay
area and found large quanti-
ties of mullet and other fish
readily available to them.
Small fishing camps were
established on the shores
of Tampa Bay by the fisher-
man for the purpose of drying
their catch before returning
to Cuba. The camps became
semi-permanent settlements
as different groups of fish-
erman would come and go
throughout the year. The
permanent "countable" pop-
ulation of the area was very
small. However, it is likely
that the population was sev-
eral times larger than was ac-
tually tallied. The fisherman
sometimes brought wives,
children and others to make
handicrafts and work in the
fishing camps. (The records
describe a cottage industry
of hat making.) The Indian
bands were uncounted and
growing and, increasingly,
runaway slaves and freed
blacks were accepted into the
various communities. Span-
ish, British and American
traders and adventurers all
began to gravitate to the bay.
Trade developed and a poly-
cultural settlement began to
take shape. As with any fron-
tier, a certain lawless element
found its way to the Tampa
Bay area, as well.
IV. Spanishtown
In 1810 there was no
Tampa, but there was a town
growing up on the shores
of Tampa Bay. It was called
Spanishtown and its inhabit-
ants were primarily the Cu-
ban fisherman and their fami-
lies. Although the population
was transient, it is likely that
Spanishtown, in the early
1800's had two to three hun-
dred residents at any time.
The community was fluid and
would increase and decrease
in number depending on the
number of Spanish, English
and American traders, Semi-
noles selling produce, and
Cuban fisherman who were
in the village. There was little
money-based commerce (cer-
tainly not enough to fill galle-
ons with silver), but quite an
active barter economy, none-
theless. Spanishtown had be-
come a village and its affairs
were known to the honest and
dishonest alike.
The engine which powered
this frontier economy was the
fleet of Cuban fishing vessels
which worked between Es-
piritu Santu Bay and Havana.
A British traveler at the time
related that there was a busi-
ness syndicate operating six
or more fishing boats out of
Havana and that each boat
was able to sell its catch for
the equivalent of two thou-
sand dollars obviously a de-
licious sum for that time. As
the Spanishtown community
grew, the fishermen would,
increasingly, exchange their
catch in Cuba for trade goods
to fill their boats for return to
Tampa Bay. These goods con-
sisted of cloth, ironware, tools
and utensils and, of course,
rum. Not the treasure of pirate
sagas, but riches by the stan-
dard of the place and times.
Spanishtown was known
to have been situated on the
upper reaches of Tampa Bay
(Hillsborough Bay) near what
has now been developed as
the Hyde Park area. There
had been a creck probably
spring fed called Spanish-
town Creek at the site of this
encampment. It is believed


that the spring was capped
and the creek covered over
during the early 1900s. In any
event, it is here, at Spanish-
town, that the real Gasparilla
invasion took place.
V. Buildup to the 1810
Raid
The Cuban fishing boats
would come and go, with
probably no more than three
or four present in Spanish-
town at any given time. Crews
would arrive and depart with
valuable cargo, either dried
fish, fur and straw hats des-
tined for the Havana markets
or trade goods brought on a
return trip.
At some point during the
Spring of 1810 (there is no
record of the exact date) there
was greater than usual activ-
ity at Spanishtown, as two or
more fishing crews finished
drying and loading their catch
for the return trip to Cuba. At
the same time, a like number
of boats were returning to the
fishing grounds and had un-
loaded trading goods at the
small Spanishtown dock. To
the opportunist's eye, there
was considerable wealth at
Spanishtown, being loaded
onto the fishing schooners or
being deposited in the palmet-
to thatched huts on the pine
scrub shore of Tampa Bay.
The setting was right for rob-
bery.
VI. The Spanishtown Raid
There was an attempted
robbery in Spanishtown.
We do not have to conjec-
ture about this, because sev-
eral corroborative facts are
known. It is well documented
that there was an active law-
less element in the Tampa
Bay area. The term "pirate"
was often used to describe
robbers, hijackers and those
.committing a variety of crimes
by the chroniclers, including
Colonel George Brooke, first
commandant of what came to


be called Fort Brooke, which
was established in 1824 and
formed the nucleus of- the
latter day city of Tampa. Al-
though the legend has Jose
Gaspar commanding the seas
from a base in the Charlotte
Harbor area, the fact is that
there were Tampa Bay "pi-
rates" as then defined who
would rob merchants and citi-
zens, rustle cattle from the In-
dians, kidnap runaway slaves
for ransom back to their own-
ers and sometimes hijack
supply boats. Colonel Brooke
complained of one hijacking
that delayed the building of
Fort Brooke and it is known
that pirates would lay up at
Egmont Island (now known
as Egmont Key named after
the Earl of Egmont, who never
saw the island and hated the
colonies, generally). Ground-
ings on Egmont Island and on
others of the sand and man-
grove barrier islands were
common and luring boats into
the shallows for easy "salvage"
became regular business.
Arrival and departure of
the trade boats would have
been common knowledge
in the Spanishtown area. It
was, therefore, inevitable that
pirates would have known
about the wealth gathered at
Spanishtown. It is here we
encounter one of only three
historic figures known to be
involved in the Spanishtown
raid.
We know very little about
Sanchez O'Neille. The names
suggest Irish and Spanish
heritage and it is likely that
he came to Espiritu Santu
Bay as a traveler from St.
Augustine. There were many
Irish in that. city during the
late 1700s. During the time of
British occupation of Florida
(from 1763 until 1783) St. Au-
gustine was garrisoned by the
"Hibernian Guard" made up
of primarily Irish and Hebrid-


ian Scots. Many married local
women had stayed on after
Spain regained control in St.
Augustine and it is most likely
that Sanchez O'Neille was the
child of such a union.
O'Neille was a trader who
primarily dealt with the Indi-
ans in purchasing cattle and
produce and also obtained
wares from the Cuban Pes-
cadores who were settled in
Spanishtown. There were
no stores or fixed mercantile
centers and it is likely that
O'Neille traveled from place to
place as an entrepreneur, try-
ing to turn profit by trading
between the various groups
at work in the Bay area; trad-
ing cattle for cloth and imple-
ments, fish for corn and Cu-
ban rum all along the coast.
We now encounter the sec-
ond historical name associat-
ed with the Spanishtown raid.
That is the name Juan Anto-
nio Gaspardo, who is believed
to be the same person whose
name was later abbreviated
to "J. Gaspard." Gaspardo's
is one of only two "pirate"
names to come down to us-
from the Tampa Bay area dur-


ing .the Spanish occupation
from 1783 to 1822. The oth-
er is a figure known only as
"Luna," whose name appears
only once in the chronicles.
He was, apparently, a bandit
who assisted in the attack on
Spanishtown.
Then, as now, criminals
were a transient lot. Some of
them lived in the small settle-
ments along the coast lead-
ing almost normal lives .but
would then dash off to rob the
fishermen or steal goods from
another settlement or cattle
from a nearby landowner. The
makeup of the pirate bands
would change from time to
time and there is no record
of a monolithic criminal en-
terprise with a permanent
leader. In that setting, Gas-
pardo, in 1810, appears to
have led a small gang of law-
less men, at least for a time,
in what must have been major
acts of robbery and piracy, in
the context of the era. Still, it
must be acknowledged that,
compared to pirates of prior
centuries, Gaspardo and his
bandit group would have been

The Spanishtown Raid:


History Behind the Gasparilla Legend
by Ten Bears


(Continued from page 22)
more closely akin to the Hole-
in-the-Wall gang than to a pi-
rate navy. In any event, Gas-
pardo and his gang conspired
to rob Spanishtown at the
crucial time in 1810 when the
community had just received
boat-loads of trade goods and
the laded fishing boats were
preparing to sail for Cuba.
Returning to conjecture
for a time, it may be inferred
that O'Neille, trading both in
Spanishtown and in travelers'
camps in the Tampa Bay area,
encountered many kinds of
people and may have known
some of the local pirates. He
may have overheard conver-
sation among some of the
conspirators about the gang's
intent to hijack the fishing
boats and raid Spanishtown.
If so, it is likely that he would
have cared little about this
problem, except that it would
have had dire economic con-
sequences for him, personal-
ly. The robbery of trade goods
on which he depended for
his hard scrabble livelihood
would have been a major cri-
sis and, so, in order to protect
his business and, coinciden-
tally, the town, he alerted the
residents of Spanishtown and
the local Seminoles of the at-
tack.
The pirates came up the
bay in boats, probably two or
three small boats bound for


the Spanishtown dock and
shoreline. They came at night
hoping, no doubt, to sneak in,
commandeer one or more of
the loaded fishing boats and
stealwhat they could from the
store houses on the water-
front. Development in Span-
ishtown probably consisted
of only a few palmetto thatch
houses constructed on pine
framework together with dry-
ing racks and smoke rooms,
and a few storage buildings.
There were probably no more
than thirty or forty structures
of any kind.
The pirates arrived quietly,
but the residents had already
been alerted and were waiting
for them. Instead of unoccu-
pied boats, the raiders were
surprised by armed fisher-
men on each vessel. The pi-
rates who landed on the shore
near the docks were met by
O'Neille, villagers and Indians.
We have no record of weap-
onry, but there were probably
a few muskets and other fire-
arms available to the defend-
ers as well as Indian weapons
and such other implements
as the residents could mus-
ter on short notice. The vil-
lagers fiercely attacked with a
few scattered shots, flashing
blades and the aggression of
people defending their homes
and property. Having the ele-
ment of surprise, they drove
the pirates off after a brief


.5 5-.


fight. It is likely that some of
the pirates dodged into the
scrub and others got to their
boats and escaped down the
bay.
There is no record of ca-
sualties, but it is known that
Sanchez O'Neille survived to
continue a career as a trades-
man on the fringe of honest
commerce. As far as we know,
there was no record of further
activity by the gang leader,
Juan Antonio Gaspardo, and
it is not known if he perished
in the attack. However, it is
likely that he lived to continue
his criminal conduct, consid-
ering records of other acts of
piracy in the Tampa Bay re-
gion, as reported by, and to,
Colonel Brooke.
This was the Spanishtown
raid. It probably lasted no
more than thirty minutes from
the time the first pirate set
foot on the Spanishtown dock.
It was not equivalent to an in-
vasion of a city. Since there
was no chronicler of this time
and place, it might have gone
totally unnoted by history. We
know it happened (insofar as
we can know anything that
happened during this era) by
a fluke of reportage.
VIII. The Record
The second Seminole war
- which started in 1835 was
a bloody one. It was frustrat-
ing for the United States mili-
tary authorities in Florida and


.1k


caused much fear for the in-
creasing number of American
settlers. The panic reached fe-
ver pitch in December, 1835,
when a detachment of over
100 soldiers under Major
Francis Dade was attacked
along the road between Fort
Brooke and Fort King and vir-
tually wiped out in the Wahoo
swamp. Consequently, sev-
eral forts were built through-
out Central Plorida, including
Fort Maitland, Fort McNeil,
Fort Christmas, and Fort
Gatlin, the latter in the area
near south Orlando. Indeed,
Fort Gatlin was the base upon


which the city of Orlando
developed, and briefly, Fort
Gatlin was the county seat of
Mosquito (Orange) County.
Fort Gatlin was construct-
ed in 1837 and named after
Dr. John S. Gatlin, an officer
in Major Dade's command
who was killed in the Dade
massacre. As is the case with
many events and places from
the early 1800s, our knowl-
edge is hazy. We do not know
exactly where the fort was lo-
cated and few records exist,
although we do understand
that it was abandoned to the

The Spanishtown Raid:

History Behind the

Gasparilla Legend


(Continued from page 23)
termites and encroaching
scrub in 1848.
The territorial papers from
that time include few docu-
ments concerning Fort Gat-
lin. There are a few letters and
dispatches related to the fort
and it is in one of those that
we find our clue to the Span-
ishtown raid. Fort Gatlin was
known as a depot for horses,
armament and supplies for
transport to the military ac-
tions further south. It appears
that Sanchez O'Neille contin-
ued his career as a trader and,
by the late 1830's, was work-
ing the Fort Gatlin area and, it
appears, provisioning the gar-
rison there.
Establishment of the wood-
en stockade inevitably drew
a mixed assortment of people
gravitating toward the fort to
be protected by or to provide
trade goods to the garrison.
Not all of them were productive
citizens. There is a notation
that the commandant (Captain
Hendricks) determined that a
number of rowdies "having
no visible industry or gainful
employment" were sent away
from the compound as was a
certain "Sanders O'Neal." It
appears that O'Neal had been
supplying cattle "of doubtful
provenance" to the troops and
volunteers stationed at Fort
Gatlin and his contract was re-
voked. (In other words, he was
suspected of rustling cattle for
sale to the army.) The report
goes on to declare: "O'Neal is
an interesting though unreli-
able character and his pres-
ence will be. missed. Among
his stories is the claim that it
was he who raised the defense
of Spanishtown when attacked
by the bandit Juan Antonio
Gaspardeaux who was well
known at Fort Brooke. The ad-


jutant there has spoken of a
"Sanches O'Neal" as the hero
of that encounter. Although,
J. Gaspard, has never been
brought to account, it may
well be that the O'Neal of our
acquaintance was involved in
the Spanishtown action, as he
appears to be well acquainted
with the events there."
IX. Epilogue
We know so little about
this period of time! So little
was written down then and so
much has been created since
that any bit of real informa-
tion is an unexpected joy. For
someone looking to create a
legend, "J. Gaspard" and his
small group of outlaws were
there to be found and inflat-
ed into the daring pirate Jose
Gaspar and his ruthless band
of pirates. Though the reality is
much smaller than the myth,
there is still a great story to be
seen in the mind's eye. Tampa
has evolved as one of the na-
tion's great multi-cultural cit-
ies. There is ironic richness
to be found as"we visualize
the defense of Spanishtown
on'some anonymous night in
1810; a band of pirates sneak-
ing in by night only to be met
by a brave company of defend-
ers: Cuban fishermen and
their families, Anglo traders
and drifters, Seminole Indi-
ans, and blacks escaped from
the plantation south, all with
different interests and all de-
fending the same community.
From that point in time, the
world spun on through Selmi-
nole and civil wars and the
defense of Spanishtown has
not even merited a footnote in
history. Still, this small act of
heroism served not only as the
path to a great pirate yarn, but
presaged the future of struggle
and triumph for the diverse
community of Tampa.

ily man who provided for his
family of a stunningly beauti-
ful wife Louise and their hardy
children. He was rough as a
cob. He was his own man, no
one could tell him what to do.
If he liked you he would go to
absurd ends to help you. Be-
cause of Darryl I got dragged


perfectionist. And we shared
thousands of dollars in buy-
ing and selling antique cars.
He was a hell-raising, two-
fisted man given to disappear-
ing for one week at a time to
"let off steam." Usually he
was brought home in cuffs by
friendly state troopers, all of

paratroops in WWII.
His entrance was expedited
by a county judge who had
had his way with the fractious
teenager who was always
coming before him for drunk
and disorderly, racing cut
down Model A, far exceeding
the speed limits and count-
less times of inciting a riot
in a neighborhood jook-joint.
Darryl was a regular Satur-
day night customer before the
judge.
Between the beatings he
took from Big Boy, he would
take on, and the beatings he
would take in jail to sober hirn
up and quiet him down it was
obvious the young hellion had
a good chance of not making it
out of his teens alive.
Darryl at 16 had been to
every recruiting station in
Tampa. They all were familiar
with the tough nose kid who
liked to fight. They threw him
out with periodic regularity.
"Come back when you are
18, sonny, and then you can
join any service you want."
After one final clear the
bar-room brawl the judge had
had enough.
"Are you 17 yet?" said the
judge.
"Close," said Darryl with
a mischievous twinkle in his
eye and his best, most like-
able smile.

Darryl Gaulden: Adventures of a Florida Cracker


(Continued from page 28)
over to the post office and
joined the army. They had
their own trouble with the
feisty lighting cracker kid, but
they managed to get him in a
Douglas DC-3 over Normandy
on D-Day. Darryl's stick was
the first of his regiment to hit
France. The drop was a huge
foul-up. The troops were wide-
ly scattered. Darryl dropped
right in the village square
and from that highlight on
never stopped fighting from
1944 until 1945. When Darryl
wasn't fighting, he was in one
hospital or another.
With his incurable pro-
pensity for continuous fight-
ing, Darryl won a chest full of
medals which in his modest
way he refused to wear unless
specifically ordered. The only
medal he wore was a purple
heart. He wore one, and had
seven more in his pocket. He
was the Audie Murphy of the
paratroopers.
He was undisciplined
but no sooner was he in the
guardhouse than his com-
pany moved out to attack the
Germans. Darryl grabbed his
rifle and his pack and he was
leading the charge. He never
missed a battle. His com-
manders were glad to see him.
"What can we do with a
fighting fool like that," said
his top sergeant.
Darryl was one of the first
airborne to be discharged
home. He found heaven. His
family welcomed him home;
he joined the 52-20 club and
headed for the nearest beer
joint and a nice welcome
home fist fight.


What Darryl had not
counted on was the number
of beautiful Southern Dixie
Belles waiting to welcome him
home.
The best of the local lasses
zeroed in on the cute unruly
G.I. with all the ribbons. Lou-
ise was certainly a sight for
sore eyes.
Louise was five foot six
inches of curvaceous South-
ern beauty. She had dark
hair and ice-white skin and
wide, beautiful green eyes.
Her mouth was beautiful-
ly shaped and her jaw was
shapely, sloping gracefully
into a long neck which led to
what Darryl called "the valley
of death." Two big beautiful
breasts pushed against her
tight sweater.
The rest of her was equal-
ly exquisite. She had a small
waist and a valentine-shaped
butt, large and shapely.
Her legs were perfect. Was
there anything she lacked?
Every girl was wildly attracted
to the heroic macho man. But
Louise was available and she
was wildly attracted to the he-
roic macho man herself.
Darryl seized the bull by
the horn and married her on
the fly. The old judge smiled
when he saw Darryl come in,
Louise in hand.
"Well, I guess I got rid of
you now. No more fighting. No
more jailhouse. Congratula-
tions. Go settle down and have
a bunch of battling Gauldens.
And don't let me see you in
here again," said the judge.
"See you soon," said Darryl
with his half-smile. Nobody
was going to completely tame


Darryl Gaulden! Not even the
beautiful dreamboat Louise!
Now let me tell you how I
came across the irrepressible
Darryl Gaulden.
At 40 years of age, after
two failed marriages, I ran
across an incredibly beautiful
flamenco dancer and in one
look, it was love at first sight.
She was petite, 5'3" but per-
fectly formed and she was the
best flamenco dancer in the
land.
Now, folks, don't let anyone
tell you that there is no such
thing as love at first sight!
By the end of her first set, I
turned to my buddy Barry
Sinco and said, "I'm going to
marry that girl!" which much
to the shock and consterna-
tion of my fiance, who had
been waiting four years for my
divorce to become final, and
to all my friends all over the
world, I did. That's another
story!
We wanted a kid right away.
I was 40 years old and Luisita
was 28. No time to waste. We
had a gorgeous gurgling baby
girl. We called her Tina.
In the first year we had a
gorgeous little girl. She was
perfect. She looked like Luis-
ita and was the spitting image
of her. She grew up, perfect in
every stage. She was wonder-
ful to behold her development.
When she started kinder-
garten, I said, "I'm taking this
perfect kid to school and I'm
picking her up after." And I
did. Boy, was that fun. Every
day I would show up in a dif-
ferent antique car. The school
went crazy. Tina acted "as if'
- she didn't go for the hi-hat.


So when she got to her perma-
nent school, Miami Country
Day School, I decided to buy
her a car.
Well, the car I loved when
I was in school was a 1931
Model A convertible with two
fender mounts and a rumble
seat. Big attraction. Of course
Tina was too tiny to drive the
car. She was tiny, and this
car was made for adults. She
"drove" to school sitting on my
lap until she hit high school;
by then she could reach the
pedals and drive. Barely.
The car was a Darryl Spe-
cial. It was a nice brown body
with black fenders. Tina loved
it. We'd put the rumble seat
down and give her friends
rides around the park every
day.
When we got to 10th grade
it was time to have a sit down.
Tina agreed she wasn't ever
going to be big enough to
reach the pedals of the Model
A. She had big grades. She de-
served her car.
"Well, Tina, you deserve a
car. What kind do you want?"
Well, shoot, I already knew
the answer but I liked to let
her feel she was making the
choice.
"A Volkswagen Beetle, con-
vertible, cherry red a Beetle
car!"
That afternoon I picked her
up and drove to Books and
Books where we usually went
to browse the new books for
the rest of the afternoon. Boy,
I loved those hours. I cherish
the memory, even today, 20
years later.
Well, again my insane luck,
I found that Michael Wolfson
the owner had a wife, a beau-
tician who was selling her
Beetle for $4,000. The car in
Hemmings magazine went
for $9 and $10,000. Tak-
ing advantage of their sloth,


I rushed over with a $4,000
check and drove off with Tina
at the wheel! A perfect fit. Boy,
was she happy.
She kept the bug for five
years, and then went off to col-
lege, NYU, where she did not
need a car. Sadly,- we sold it
for $12,000! And she used the
money for her college spend-
ing money. She was learning
the economy of buying and
selling antique cars.
What a lesson Tina learned
about car-swapping! She read
Hemmings and was sharp on
pricing a car and swapping.
Darryl and I loved to go to car
meets and see what bargains
we could pick up. The deal
was this: I'd put up as high
as $9,000. Never more. Usu-
ally around $3,000. And it got
to where I'd trust him to spot
a "turnaround" car. He would
call me at home.
"Doc, I got a 1935 Packard
two-door. It's in good unre-
stored shape. We can turn it
at the meet. Make $2,000 -
one grand a piece."
"Come pick up the scratch,"
I'd say and hand him the
money.
That night he'd come by
with a $1,000 profit.
He never failed to hit a
"steal." He was a sharp horse
trainer.
He had a basket case 1941
Packard convertible with side
mounts. A most desirable car,
but it was all torn apart. In
pieces, I mean.
"I'll put 'er together for us,
and I can get $25,000."
"Go to it. Tell me if you
need money for parts."
As I remember it, he need-
ed $6,000 to finish the car.
A car restorer would charge
$15,000 for labor, $3,000 for
a top, $5,000 for leather.
"Paint it red, make it a con-

Darryl Gaulden: Adventures of a Florida Cracker


(Continued from page 29)
vertible and buy a Packard,"
was Darryl's credo.
Next auto show we did, I
brought my beautiful wife to
sit in the driver's seat and
smile her bright smile. We
sold it the first day we put it
on the stand for $25,000! Nev-
er underestimate the power of
a beautiful girl.
Once I was in LA with an Ali
fight. Norton had broken Ali's
jaw and I had fixed it. Now I
had to approve his rematch in
four months. I took a chance
and said yes, he could fight.
The jaw wouldn't crack again.
It didn't. Ali fought Norton
and had no difficulty beating
him. The fractured jaw healed
up; Norton did not. We won.
Ali, who never paid me a
dime, insisted on giving me a
present. He insisted.
"OK, buy me a used car!"
Ali didn't understand about
antique cars. To him, it was
a used car. My normal fee for
medical aid for a boxing match
would be $50,000. Not once in
20 fights did I ever charge him
a dime.
LA is heaven for restored
antique cars. One man is the
king. I went there. He had
sold all of his own antique
cars. He had two beauties
which had been used in the
film Chinatown. One was a
gleaming new 1936 four-door
Phaeton, forest green with yel-
low wheels and white walls. A
bargain price.
The other was an all time
favorite. The best classic "NW"
design of a convertible. It
was a 1941 Lincoln convert-
ible designed and produced
specifically for Henry Ford's
son Edsel. It was a dazzling
design. They had only made
24 that year. This guy had a
slick looking white car, which
looked a tiny bit shabby. As
if it had been restored in a
shabby way. Never go look for
a dream car. You are blind to
imperfections. I flew Darryl
out to see the car.
The 36 is terrific. They
wanted $12,000. First rate
price for a first rate "movie"
car. Darryl recommended
it. In a show we could get
$16,000 or more.
He was sour on the Lincoln.
They wanted $10,000 because
the restoration work was
shabby, however, a car like
a 41 Lincoln sold at $26,000
easy. Outside it was perfect.
Inside it had cancer.
Ali was paying for the car,
sight unseen, so it was up to
me. One, a Ford would cost
him $12,000. The other, a
Lincoln convertible would cost
him $10,000. To an amateur,
the Lincoln was the buy. I
toyed with the idea of buying
both, but my garage was full
of Packards. At the time my
plan was to buy the Lincoln
and dump it for a few quick
thousands.
I kept the Lincoln for six
months and did not spend a
penny on further restoration.
Darryl, who hated the car,
said "Don't waste the money."
We didn't. Wherever we went
we were the hit of the show,
but we were never sure if we
had to tow it back. It was a
dog!
Finally, the big auto show
arrived in Atlanta. Big expen-
sive shows. I turned down a
Duesenberg Phaeton, freshly
restored for a super bargain


$75,000. I had just bought
a 1942 Packard convertible
which was the personal pri-
vate car of President Carde-
nas of Mexico. It was in mint
condition. It was a deep
gleaming red car. Just what
Darryl loved. The Mexican
government wanted $25,000!
I would give Darryl an added
$5,000 to freshen up the res-
toration up to 100 points.
I almost went to the bank
and borrowed $75,000 to bring
home the super desirable
Duesenberg four-door con-
vertible. This was a first rate
restoration! A bad restoration
was selling for $100,000 and
up to $150,000. The cars were
jumping in price. Every inch
of gambler in me said buy it!
I was doing great as a doctor,
but that was too steep. Dar-
ryl went to the bank and they
turned him down but offered
to loan me. For once I listened
to my wife. I passed on the
Duesenberg.
Note to the weak-hearted:
that Duesenberg went on
sale the following year for one
million dollars! Oh my. That
showed me never to listen to
my wife when it came to buy-
ing cars!
I kept the Packard car for
25 years. It sold at Las Vegas
for $150,000 from 50 to 150
in 25 years. I saw it sell later
for $250,000. That car is a
winner!
But, I tarry. Here is another
lesson on how to sell hot look-
ing cars that are really dogs.
We trucked the Lincoln.
God knows we didn't trust the
bucket of bolts to drive it on
its own. Darryl likened it to a
painted-up showgirl. I went
with the two most beautiful
girls I knew. One was my fla-
menco beauty, a raging Span-
ish beauty. The other girl was
a newly married (to my best
friend, a plastic surgeon) who
was a magazine cover girl. She
had been Sinatra's girlfriend -
that good.
Get this. The car rolled on
to a round turn platform. The
car was a rich cream color.
The girl was almost 6 feet tall.
She wore a cloche hat of the
forties, with great red hair
showing a bit. Her face had
the look of Rita Hayworth.
Boy, was she stunning! She
had a very expensive gabar-
dine suit also cream. Her am-
ple chest showed off a Jane
Russell chest in a forest green
rich turtleneck. A killer look.
As the can rolled by, I had
the band play Artie Shaw's
"Frenesi" and "Begin the Be-
guine". The staid crowd broke
out into wild applause. Some
couples were dancing.
The 1941 Lincoln was de-
signed to be shown with the
top down. With it up it looked
like a covered wagon. We had
the motor turned off because
with the motor on, it smoked
like a plane being shot down.
The announcer was so
overwhelmed with out model
that he couldn't stop praising
her and the car. Every eye was
riveted to the redhead. No one
looked at the Lincoln. Yet.
We were looking to get our
$10,000 back that Ali had
paid for it and beat a hasty re-
treat out the back of the tent.
The price for this beauty?
$10,000. A bargain.
"Come on folks, look at this
beauty! Eleven, do I hear 12,
13, 14..."


It was going so fast he hit
$18,000 and still flying until
one buyer said, "What does
she look like with her top up?"
Oh, oh. It took three of us
to put the top up and then
a shower of nuts and bolts
would hit our head.
"Why is she smoking?"
We grabbed a check for
$18,000, took our two beau-
ties out of the tent and fled for
Miami without looking back.
We giggled all the way trying
to imagine the new owner try-
ing to wrestle up the huge top,
by hand, and trying to figure
where all the nuts and bolts
fit in to the top frame. Never
mind the smoke screen.
So, thanks to Ali for lay-
ing out $10,000 and Darryl
for keeping the dog running,
and two spectacular ladies
for taking the customer's eye
from the car to the ladies we
made our fattest profit yet.
Back home, I offered Dar-
ryl a check for $9,000, or half
of what we got for the Lincoln
dog. Darryl tore it up to bits
and threw it in the trash.
"That Lincoln was your'n. I
didn't have no money invested
in that. You keep it all."
Quietly I slipped $9,000 in
$100 bills into an envelope
and sent it to Louise. Women
understand incoming cash
better than men. Crackers
have their pride, like Span-
iards. Louise banked the full
amount.
Life with Darryl was a bar-
rel of laughs. Darryl was the
hardest working man I've ever
seen. He built new houses for
Louise, each one nicer and
bigger than the last and more
profitable.
The love of his life was a
tiny redheaded little girl who
came down with severe diabe-
tes. She needed to be inject-
ed three times a day. Louise
wasn't available. Darryl did all
the medical treatment.
Darryl was one of those
types of men who took it upon
himself to learn to do what
was needed. I would buy huge
cases of needles and other
medical supplies. It looked to
me that she wouldn't make it
into high school. Darryl could
have asked me for help, but
he never did. I'd instruct him
how to do his treatments and
you'd never hear from him
again. He was the kind of man
who taught himself how to do
everything.
The children grew up to be
leaders in school and the dia-
betic little girl was a big leader
in her community. The one
boy that was most like Darryl
turned into an all-star line-
backer. All the boys cultivated
Darryl's style of self-employ-
ment and copied his way. His
insane bravery made him a
top linebacker in Florida.
About the time Darryl
reached 60 years old, he
had wrecked his system with
moonshine, beer and hot
food. He liked his Tabasco
sauce even though it burned
a hole in his gut. From time
to time he would have to go
to the hospital and let his gut
cool off. Not that it kept him
from going off on a toot when
the desire hit him. The doc-
tor (and I, all the time) would
warn him that the time was
approaching when he had to
cool down.
"Hell, what's the use of ma-
kin' moonshine if you can't


drink it!" he would say and
disappear in his Model A road-
ster to drink and raise hell.
He attracted boys and men
to keep him company and
work on his restorations. One
reason was because of his ex-
pertise and genius at working
on the cars. Any car. He was a
genius at Model A cars. He'd
pick up a frame of a Model A at
junkyards and bring it home.
In two or three weeks, a new
sparkling Model A roadster
was sitting out front with a
$6,000 price tag and it would
be gone in two to three days.
He loved to find strange Model
As. I saw him put together a
bakery wagon, an ambulance,
a bank delivery truck, a fishing
and hunting wagon and a fan-
cy limousine for an old Florida
cracker banker who said he'd
never ride in anything but a


Model T because Henry Ford
had once told him that if he
bought a Model T, it was a car
that would last for life. The old
man lived until 100 and the
flowers at his funeral had a
ribbon that said, "See, I told
you. -Henry Ford."
The last 20 years he at-
tracted a dark Indian (from
India) who followed Darryl
around like a dog. He learned
to work just like Darryl. Dar-
ryl taught him everything
about Model As and the boy
never got paid. That was the
way he treated Tiki. He was an
orphan and just kinda moved
into the house, sleeping on
the floor and on the sofas. He
got up early and made break-
fast for the lads and then for
Darryl and Louise and last
for himself. He'd leave the

kitchen clean and join Darryl
in the garage. He worked un-
til midnight if the work had a
time deadline. He didn't go to
school but he learned to read
and write by doing homework
with Darryl's kids.


Well, Darryl's incredible
ability to work like a slave
would result in a head of
steam. Inevitably that would
result in a Darryl Blow-Up.
He'd disappear every Friday
and reappear in handcuffs.
Always Darryl picked a fight


with a bigger man. The police
of the area all knew Darryl. By
Sunday he'd raised enough
hell and they would go out,
cuff him, throw him in a jail
cell and let him sleep it off and
bring him home to Louise who
was more than glad to see him

alive and after a good tongue
lashing, hugged him aftd wel-
comed him home.
Darryl built several com-
fortable houses for his three
lads, each time bigger and bet-
ter than the last one. His last
home was a lake-side beauty.
No licenses, just Darryl and
his friends putting in all the
work like in the pioneer days.
He had an eye for Florida
real estate and knew how to
buy and sell empty lots with
the same horse trader acu-
men that made him a fortune
on each deal. Darryl never
went to work for anyone but
himself, and if money meant
anything to him he would
have piled up a million bucks
by the time he died.
I could easily write a book
on adventures with Darryl
Gaulden, called Adventures of
a Florida Cracker.
Ill close with my favorite
Darryl story. Things like this
just happened to Darryl. You'll
have to take my word for it.
Darryl would work for six
or seven weeks steady, seven
days and nights straight. He
disappeared one Friday night
and had not returned by the
third week. Louise was okay
by a two week absence, but
she started to worry when he'd
been gone for three weeks.
Even the state police put out a
warning, and Louise sent Tiki
out to look in his hideouts.
At the same time, the last
thing Darryl had done was
to buy a pretty solid Packard
funeral hearse, 1941, pretty
much all there, and he came
by and got the cash and said
he would probably drive it
home from Georgia. He left
with a case of shine, the very
best he could distill. I warned
Louise that the return trip
might be delayed longer than
usual because all his cousins
and war buddies were dying
off and he wanted to say good-


bye. I tried to warn her that he
could easily take four weeks.
She looked worried for the first
time in their time together.
"Ah, pswha," she said, "he
can't last four weeks drinking
that hard."
In the meantime, Darryl
had made it up to Georgia
and bought the 1941 Pack-
ard funeral hearse and made
arrangements with an army
scout, nicknamed the Path-
finder because he knew every
path and back road in Geor-
gia and Florida. So Darryl
fixed his Model A so it would
be strong enough to drag the
funeral hearse and drop it off
at his garage in Miami.
Problem was, Darryl discon-
nected from Miami. He wouldn't
call home because he was not
fond of hearing Louise's war
whoops and hollers. He never
called home, so he forgot to
tell her that the Pathfinder was
dragging the hearse home.
On Sunday was pro football
day and I never answered the
phone much. Pathfinder was
weary having stayed up two
days and knowing Louise's
phone number he called her,
but she was on the road with
Tiki trying to track down Dar-
ryl. This time she was sure
being on the road for four full
weeks of drinking had finally
killed him.
It was seven o'clock in
the evening of a foggy winter
night when Pathfinder pulled
up in front of Darryl's house
and dropped off the hearse
right at the front door, left the
keys under the front seat mat
and checked in to the closest
motel and crashed for a full
night's sleep.
The next call I got was from
the sheriff saying that Louise
had lost her mind and was
screaming, yelling and speak-
ing in foreign tongues. He said
to bring a shot to knock her

Birth of an Evil Raider Nation


During his first inaugural
address, President George W.
Bush coined the term "Axis of
Evil" as a way to describe ter-
rorist nations or at the least,
nations that helped terror-
ists. These nations were Iraq,
North Korea and Iran. A few
months later, John Bolton,
who would become a UN Am-
bassador, delivered a speech
entitled "Beyond the Axis of
Evil", which added three more
nations to the previously es-
tablished trio. They were Lib-
ya, Syria and Cuba. February
5, 2011, Former Secretary
of Defense Donald Rumsfeld
added a new nation to that
list...
The Raider Nation.
Yes, the Oakland Raiders,
according to Former Secre-
tary Rumsfeld, were unsup-
portable due to the team's evil
nature.
In an interview with the
Financial Times, Rumsfeld
sat down with Gideon Rach-
man to talk about his new
book, Known and Unknown,
which outlined his take on
the Iraq War. The interview
wrapped up with Rumsfeld
asking Rachman which team
he would be rooting for in
the Super Bowl between the
Green Bay Packers and the
Pittsburgh Steelers. Rachman
replied that he preferred the
Steelers, "...because of the
epic games against the Oak-
land Raiders in the 1970s."
Rumsfeld responded, "No-
body could support the Raid-
ers. They're evil."
I don't know when decades
of mediocrity and embarrass-
ment became qualifications
for being evil, but I guess evil
just ain't what it used to be.
Of course the Former Sec-


retary's remarks were in jest,
but they do bring to mind how
loosely terms like "evil" and
"terrorist" have been thrown.
around. It also reminds me
of the brilliance of the Re-
publican Party's use of catch
phrases.
It used to be in this coun-
try that if we didn't'like some-
thing, we declared war on it.
Democrats and Republicans
were good at this, especially
presidents. Lyndon John-
son had his War on Poverty.
Richard Nixon had his War on
Drugs. George W. Bush had
the War on Terror. We like to
declare war on things because
it sounds like we're serious. It
is also catchy. Declaring war
is much more effective than
ending something, blowing
something up or even shoot-
ing something. None of those
are catchy. If you want a sal-
ad, you can shoot it with your
salad shooter, but it isn't very
effective for ending poverty.
It seems that through the
years, the Republicans be-
came much more adept at
creating catch phrases to get
a nation to either love or hate
something depending on the
phrase. They have "Family
Values" to stand for and the
"Death Tax" to stand against.
I believe the light switched on
when the abortion fight be-
came a national debate. This
isn't necessarily a Republican
v. Democrat fight, but Re-
publicans are generally more
"Pro-Life" while the Demo-
crats tend to be "Pro-Choice".
The phrase "Pro-Life" is so
brilliant in its simplicity. Who
isn't for life? On the other side
of the coin, why would anyone
want to be "pro-death"? Pro-
Death doesn't really have the


ring that "Pro-Choice" advo-
cates were looking for. Over
the years, "Pro-Choice" has
evolved into the "woman's
right to choose". A little bet-
ter, but not nearly as effective
as "Pro-Life".
Democrats have generally
been inept at spreading their
message. Ronald Reagan used
"Born in the USA" as a song to
campaign with in 1984 (albeit
against Bruce Springsteen's
wishes and the intent of the
song). It didn't matter that
Reagan didn't know the song
had nothing to do with being
patriotic; it was catchy. Eight
years later, Bill Clinton used
Fleetwood Mac's "Don't Stop"
at the Democratic National
Convention. One word de-
scribes this moment... lame.
Here are some examples of
the consistent lameness of the
Democrats when taking the
opposite side of a Republican
issue...
Republican phrase De-
fense of Marriage
Democrat phrase Same-
Sex Marriage
Reps Death Tax
Dems Estate Tax
Reps Job-Killing Health
Care Law/Obamacare
Dems Health Care and
Education Reconciliation Act
of 2010/Universal Healthcare
Reps Intelligent Design
Dems Separation of
Church and State
Reps Patriot Act
Dems Invasion of Privacy
I could fill a volume of en-
cyclopedias with the lameness
of Democrats, but I think you
get the picture. The reason
the Republicans are so good
at this semantic manipulation
is that they have figured out

out. He said Darryl was dead.
She calmed down enough
to tell me that Darryl was
out front in a hearse! I said
I'd come over. Out front in a
hearse? What the hell.
Sure enough, there was
a 1941 Packard hearse, but
no Darryl inside. I had Path-
finder's phone number. I woke
him up and he laughed for
half an hour thinking that the
hearse that Darryl had bought
was delivered to his house as
his contract said, Louise was
out looking for Darryl, and
when she finally came home,
her nerves frazzled, thinking
that a three week toot would
surely kill the 60 year old hell
raising bad boy of hers, and
pulling up to her house to see
a hearse parked right in front
of her house. She broke down
and wouldn't look inside to
see Darryl.
Louise had skittery nerves
from a lifetime of putting up
with Darryl's adventures and
his toots. He let off steam and
came home calm and ready to


g:. 1,, ',ork Shi sli-. d ir the
kitchen with shattered nerves
for a month.
Poor Louise didn't drink
booze, so the only relief she
sought was to fix huge meals
and devour everything on the
table. As the years went by,
Louise lost her fabulous figure
in tons offat and blubber. Her
tiny waistline disappeared; a
ring of blubber grew and grew.
She looked like a barrage bal-
loon. Darryl, who had uncon-
ditional love for his originally
gorgeous wife, found her in-
creasing fat to be hilariously
funny. He loved her, no mat-
ter how fat she got.
Louise woke up two days
later. I had given her a shot
to knock out an elephant! She
woke up to the heavenly smell
of Tiki preparing a turkey din-
ner. That brought her back.
She heard Darryl out in the
garage fixing a new Model A
project and the kids out in the
yard doing their chores.
She laid back. All was all
right!
Darryl was home.

scared yet?
People can get behind the
basic idea of a barrier between
two countries and reform
sounds like work.
Comedian Lewis Black per-
fectly described the difference
between the two parties. Black
stated, "The Republicans are
the party of bad ideas and the
Democrats are the party of no
ideas."
What I've found is that the
Democrats are too worried


about being liked instead of
standing up for what they be-
lieve and expressing it in an
eloquent, persuasive manner.
They don't need to fight dirty,
just better. I'm not saying all
Democrat ideas are bad. I'm
saying that in order to have
any idea succeed, it must be
marketed. Democrats had
great PR in the 20th Century
with ideas like the New Deal,
Social Security, Great Soci-
ety. Nowadays we get "Win the
Future". The Democrats need
better, especially if they don't
want to see a Mama Grizzly in
the White House.
Maybe the Democrats can
name the American Axis of
Evil. The first installment
could include Sarah Palin, Mi-
chele Bachmann, Glenn Beck
and of course, the Oakland
Raiders.

Current Thompson Cigar Factory
Current Thompson Cigar Factory


The very first mecha-
nized cigar factory in Flor-
ida, Thompson Cigar Fac-
tory, which rolled more than
120,000 back in its prime, is
at risk of being demolished.
Built in Bartow in 1925, this
factory has temporarily avoid-
ed demolition by convinc-
ing the Polk County Board
of Commissioners to trans-
fer ownership of the building
over to the City of Bartow on
the city's condition that the
Thompson Cigar Factory Re-
development Project raise
$50,000 by May 3, 2011.
Thompson Cigar Factory,
which is on the nomination
list for the 11 most endan-
gered buildings in Florida, is
extremely important to the.
history of the tobacco indus-
try and is the foundation for
the Cuban community in Polk
County. It is listed on the
National Register of Historic
Places 2002 and is one of only
two buildings remaining with
a "mission revival" architec-
tural style in the state.
"We really think this build-
ing will be the cornerstone
of the redevelopment of Bar-
tow," says Ken Atkins who is
diligently working to save the
factory. His uncle was a top
level manager there. He says
the building could be used for
anything from corporate of-
fices to a five-star restaurant
or a cultural arts center. With
communities across America
searching for ways to improve
their local economies, en-
hance their quality of life and
revitalize their neighborhoods,
cultural arts, historic preser-
vation and heritage tourism
are prominent economic en-
gines that contribute to the
economy, providing jobs and
revenue.
Those interested in help-
ing the Thompson Cigar Fac-
tory have a second chance at
life can donate to its cause
by contacting Trish Pfeiffer,
the project team fundraising
chair, at 863-640-1024. Do-
nations are tax deductible.
(Continued to page 35)










Saving Social Clubs


It's Fiesta Day time and as
the area celebrates its Latin
cuisine, culture and heritage,
it's important to remember
the social clubs around which
Immigrant societies flourished
in early Ybor City. Social clubs
such as the Cuban Club, the
Italian Club and Centro As-
turiano are still pulsing with
life, but they need economic
nourishment to survive. Do-
nations are a great way to
nurture your favorite social
club to guarantee its life is ex-
tended for years to come.
Those interested in giv-
ing direct donations to any of
these clubs may contact the
club itself to inquire about
donation options such as a
one-time donation or regu-
lar donations via credit card.
In the case of the Cuban and
Italian clubs, which have en-
dowment funds set up with
the Community Foundation
of Tampa Bay, individuals
may contact the Community
Foundation (813-282-1975)
to donate to their respective
endowments. These endow-
ments essentially accrue in-
terest like a savings account
and are set up to keep these
clubs monetarily sufficient in
perpetuity. The Cuban Club
is even part of the Commu-
nity. Foundation's Challenge


Grant Program, which pro-
vides a 3-to-1 matching grant.
For example, if the grant goal
is $50,000 and the nonprofit
agency raised $37,500 (75%),
it would qualify for a $12,500
(25%) match by the Commu-
nity Foundation.
Within the Community
Foundation, donors may also
set up a charitable gift annu-
ity. These are contracts that
allow people to receive a fixed
annual, partially tax-free in-
come for life while establish-
ing a legacy to benefit their
favorite nonprofit such as one
of these clubs.
Often people are willed a
car, boat, house or even a
business when a loved one
dies and have no idea what to
do with it. These assets may be
donated to a social club, which
may in turn sell it and use the
money for projects. Also, an
individual may put a social
club in his or her will to receive
money or assets or even desig-
nate the club as a beneficiary
of his or her life insurance.
Michael Valdez, an accred-
ited investment fiduciary at
Triangulum Financial Part-
ners, is on the endowment
committee of the Cuban Club
Foundation and explains that
donors can specify which
projects he or she would like


to fund. For example, the Cu-
ban Club could currently ben-
efit from a renovation of its
ballroom, a new commercial
ice machine, a rebuilt lobby
bar and new glass windows.
Donors may even help create


and fund a brand new project
of his or her personal interest.
Whether it's $250 or
$25,000, anything given to
these historic social clubs is a
quality investment for the his-
tory of Tampa Bay as well as


its future.
For more information or
a presentation on these is-
sues, or if you're interested in
donating to the Cuban Club
Foundation, contact Michael
Valdez at 546-2203.

The delivery of supplies is

Shapiro has truly made a dif-
ference and therefore received
the award of the same name.
"The experience was an
educational one; I had no idea
what MS was or how it affect-
ed people," said Shapiro. "I
quickly learned what MS was
and how it affected people di-
agnosed with it. I was lucky
enough to meet some MS pa-
tients and I was blown away
by their positive attitudes and
personalities. It truly was in-
spirational to see how they
could have such a positive
outlook with such a terrible
disease. I also enjoyed work-


ing with, and learned a lot
from, the NMSS Mid Florida
staff. They were very helpful
and accommodating. I made
a lot of friends that weekend
and I will always remember
the experience.
"As you can see, my time
and dedication was able to
make a huge difference. Vol-
unteering in this position gave
me the opportunity to expand
my life experience. The skills I
learned and the network I de-
veloped will pay dividends for
years to come. I will continue
to volunteer in this capacity
as long as I am welcomed to."
