The governor's communication
director, Brian Burgess, who gets
a state paycheck funded by us
taxpayers, defended the practice
of the governor's advisors using
private email and private phones
for government business to avoid
public ::cord laws. He told the
St. Petersburg Times, "Are there
things we don't want you to know?
Yes. There are things we don't


want to broadcast to our oppo-
nents."
Since the election is over, who
are these "opponents" of the
governor and Brian Burgess? Al
Qaeda? People from. Georgia?
Floridians? The last is probably
whom he meant. Floridians who
are Democrats, Floridians who
are pro-choice, Black Floridians,
Hispanic Floridians and.certainly
Floridians who work for media
outlets.

Here is the Victory Cigar
Company at 2144 Main Street
(corner of Howard Avenue) in
June 1946. Cigar advertise-
ments were painted on the
front windows. Cigar trade-
marks were El Romano and La
Flor de Antonio Parro. The
front doors boasted "Cigars
By The Box". Note the sign at
the far left of the building
advertising ROOMS. As was
customary with many cigar
factories, boarding houses
were available in the vicinity
for bachelor workers, often on
the second floor over restau-
rants catering to the workers.
The street lantern was electric
which was a sign of progress
in West Tampa. Automobiles
were still scarce as a result of
World War II.

Los Relampagos de Tampa Bay el equipo professional de
Hockey sobre hielo de la NHL, que fueron campeones nacio-
nales en el 2005, en esta temporada arrancaron desde el ini-
cio en el primer lugar de su conferencia buscando su segunda
Copa Stanley.
En esta semana lo improbable esta lejos de ser impossible.
Y los "Bolts" son muy conscientes de lo que esto significa.
Tampa Bay arranc6 la semana con una ventaja de 2-0 la
series de siete juegos, al primero que gane cuatro ante los Ca-
pitales de Washington sus aguerridos rivals en la temporada
regular en la que estuvieron disputando el 1-2 de la cuispide
del Este.
"No significa nada," dijo el atacante Marty St. Louis, sobre
la ventaja de 2-0. "Tenemos que ganar todos los dias. Se trata
del que gane cuatro partidos, no dos. Obviamente estamos
contents con los resultados, pero no hemos hecho nada to-
davia."
Aunque la historic sugiere regresar de una desventaja de
2-0 es una subida dura s61o el 13 por ciento de los equipos
han sido capaces de volver y remontar el marcador adverse
-y esta sucediendo con mayor frecuencia en los iltimos afios.

Confusi6n
Uno no entiende much el
sentido de algunas reacciones
de gente notoria respect de la
muerte de Osama Bin Laden y
pareciera que algunas de ellas
lamentan que el terrorist
mas buscado del planet haya
sido ajusticiado.
Utilizo el t6rmino "ajusti-
ciado" porque en el fondo de
la acci6n que condujo a su
muerte lo que existi6 desde
el dia posterior a los atenta-
dos del 11 de setiembre, fue
la busqueda del sentido de
justicia en contra de un tipo
sanguinario cuyas 6rdenes
causaron 3.000 muertos en
los ataques.
No es como pretenden los
enemigos de Estados Unidos,
que llaman la acci6n "asesi-


nato", tratando de darle una
connotaci6n distinta a lo que
en realidad ocurri6, es decir,
el ajuste de cuentas contra un
hombre despiadado, seguidor
y lider de una doctrine, el Is-
lam, cuyo objetivo es la desa-
parici6n de occidente.
Pero hay mas, uno no sabe
exactamente cuales eran las
6rdenes que tenian los sol-
dados del equipo 61ite que
condujo el asalto al bunker
donde este se encontraba "en-
conchado", si 6stas se referian
a la necesidad de capturarlo
vivo o sencillamente producir-
le su muerte.
Si uno se coloca en el pe-
lejo de cualquiera de los mu-
chachos que integr6 la tropa
de asalto, no puede ser menos
que indulgente, sobre todo


si se piensa que el enfrenta-
miento es con un asesino,
cuyas apariciones publicas
han sido siempre exhibiendo
una actitud agresiva y arma-
do hasta los dientes, en una
clara intenci6n de intimidar a
sus enemigos potenciales.
Salir al "encuentro" de un
individuo de esta calafa su-
pone, al menos, la mayor de
las prudencias posibles y, si
se piensa en la tension que
debe involucrar una acci6n

Actualidad de


America Latina-


Argentina
La viudez es una etapa dificil, pero en political puede ge-
nerar grandes r6ditos, y si no es asi, la president argentina
Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner es un ejemplo de esta pre-
misa, y mas ahora cuando debe decidir si aspirard o no a
la reelecci6n. La muerte del expresidente Nestor Kirchner el
27 octubre de 2010, increment6 "la imagen positive" de su
esposa y president, quien hasta ese mismo mes, de haber
buscado la reelecci6n en 2011, la habria perdido, como re-
velaban los sondeos. El imperio politico y personal que cons-
truyeron juntos los esposos Kirchner desde 2003 han sido
controvertidos. Por un lado el matrimonio logr6 rescatar la
economic; impulsar las inversiones, estrechar nuevas alian-
zas pero a la sombra de escandalos de corrupci6n y una sed
de poder que ha fracturado la unidad del peronista Partido
Justicialista. A seis meses de las elecciones, Fernmandez (viu-
da de Kirchner) encabeza las encuestas con una robusta in-
tenci6n de voto de entire 40 y 55%, mientras la oposici6n, sin
una figure clave para hacerle sombra, apenas legan al 15%.
La mandataria ha mantenido en su Gobiemo fuertes crisis
con el agro, la banca y los medios de comunicaci6n, pero la
muerte de su esposo en octubre de 2010 le gener6 una "luna
de miel" political frente a sus oponentes, y lo demuestra el
hecho de que en diciembre la mejor6 su imagen en 20 pun-
tos segin la consultora argentina Poliarquia. El "repunte"
que ha tenido Fernindez se debe "al l1amado efecto luto que
se gener6 tras la muerte de Kirchner y el cual la mandataria
explotard al maximo para sus proyectos".
Peri
Al menos 10 de los 130 parlamentarios electos en el Perd
para el period 2011-2016 son sospechosos de vinculos de
algin tipo con el narcotrlfico, segOn denunci6 el expert
Jaime Antezana en declaraciones publicadas por la prensa
local. Antezana se abstuvo de dar nombres, pero sefial6 que
cuatro de los supuestos sospechosos pertenecen a la alianza
izquierdista Gana Perd (GP) e igual nimero al partido dere-
chista Fuerza 2011 (F2011), de los candidates presidenciales
Ollanta Humala y Keiko Fujimori, indic6 DPA. Por lo pronto,
el expert confirm a la fujimorista Maria Magdalena L6pez,
cuyo patrimonio, dijo, "ha crecido de manera spectacular"
y quien hizo "una campaiha fastuosa". La prensa ya habia
sefialado que la riqueza de L6pez supuestamente no esta
justificada, por lo que es investigada per la Fiscalia. Ade-
mAs, mencion6 sin identificarlo a un parlamentario electo del
departamento de Ayacucho que supuestamente se dedica a
la maceraci6n de coca (primer paso para la elaboraci6n de
cocaine).
Colombia
El alcalde de BogotA, Samuel Moreno, fue suspendido
temporalmente por ineficiencia en su gesti6n en el conside-
rado segundo cargo politico mas important de Colombia,
representando un golpe a su partido izquierdista de cara a
las pr6ximas elecciones locales. La Procuraduria General de
Colombia inform que Moreno, miembro del partido Polo De-
mocrAtico Altemativo -el inico declarado opositor al Gobier-
no central-, no puede ejercer sus funciones por tres meses,
durante los cuales el president Juan Manuel Santos debera
asignar a un sustituto, mencion6 Reuters. La suspension
ocurre en medio de una investigaci6n por la adjudicaci6n de
contratos y ejecuci6n de obras viales en BogotA, casos por los
cuales su hermano, el ex senador del Polo Democratico Ivan
Moreno, estA encarcelado. Un grupo de empresarios acus6 al
alcalde y a su hermano de pedir sobornos.
Canada
El partido conservador del primer ministry canadiense,
Stephen Harper, se hizo con la mayoria absolute en las elec-
ciones adelantadas de Canada, segun se inform tras el re-
cuento del 99% de los votos. El partido de Harper, de 52,
afios, se hizo con 167 escafios, 12 mas de los que necesitaba
para una mayoria absolute, despues de gobemar el segundo
pais mas grande del mundo desde 2006 con un gabinete en
minoria, destac6 DPA. Harper prometi6 un "gobiemo fuerte,
stable y conservador" que impulse la economic, cree pues-
tos de trabajo y reduzca el deficit presupuestario. Sin emrbar-
go, no estA prevista una subida de los impuestos. El primer
ministry manifest ademas su voluntad de continuar cola-
borando con el resto de partidos. La peor derrota fue para
los liberals de Michael Ignatieff, el Anico partido que existe
desde la creaci6n del pais en 1867 y que pas6 de 77 a 34
mandates en el Parlamento. "Es duro perder asi", declare Ig-
natieff al conocer los resultados, sin precisar si se despedira
de la political.

La verdad es que no se debe celebrar ninguna muerte, pero, los diez afios de humillaci6n
que vivi6 el pais luego del ataque a las torres gemelas y el Pentigono, fueron un arco
emotional que se fue tensando hasta reventar cuando se supo la noticia de la muerte de
Osama Bin Laden. Es comprensible, entonces, que la gente haya salido a la calle a festejar el
acontecimiento al sentir que se hizo justicia. Pero el recogimiento de esta sefiora recordando
a sus muertos es mas c6nsono con el espiritu de nuestro pais, amante de la vida.

La acci6n diferida y un

"problema" de imagen


Por Maribel Hasting
Fue necesaria una intense
campafia del joven, de otros
Sofiadores, de grupos de pre-
si6n y la intervenci6n del go-
berador de Connecticut, el
dem6crata Dannel Malloy, y
del senador federal Joe Lie-
berman, entire otros, para que
el DHS hiciera lo que debi6
hacer desde un principio: sus-
pender la deportaci6n del es-
tudiante de 23 afios de edad,
traido por sus padres desde
M6xico cuando no tenia ni dos
afios de edad.
Dias despues el DHS le
concedi6 acci6n diferida, es
decir, la suspension temporal
de su deportaci6n.
Esa acci6n diferida, que no
require de la intervenci6n del
Congress, es la que el presi-
dente Barack Obama puede
aplicar a todos los j6venes
que l1enen los requisitos del
DREAM Act y que como Ma-
riano, enfrentaron, enfrentan
o enfrentarin la deportaci6n.
Pero esta Administraci6n
no s6lo ha roto el record de
deportaciones sino que ha
concedido menos acciones
diferidas que el gobierno del
republican George W. Bush.
La Opini6n report que el
DHS concedi6 542 acciones
diferidas en el 2010 aunque
no se especifica cuantas fue-
ron concedidas a Sofiadores.
El diario cita ademas las
-estadisticas de acciones di-
feridas desde 2005, cuando


Bush era president, hasta
2010: 891 casos en 2005; 640
en 2006; 604 en 2007; 1,029
en 2008 y 780 en 2009.
Entre los afios fiscales
2009 y 2010 mas de 800,000
personas fueron deportadas.
La administraci6n Bush
promedi6 771 acciones diferi-
das y 301,418 deportaciones
entire los afios 2005 al 2008,
mientras que la administra-
ci6n Obama promedi6 661
acciones diferidas y 391,348
deportaciones en sus prime-
ros dos afios de gesti6n.- Me-
nos acciones diferidas y mas
deportaciones.
Pero en lo que respect a
conceder la acci6n diferida a
todos los Sofiadores, la Casa
Blanca se mantiene firme en
que seguird considerando los
casos de manera individual
porque las acciones adminis-
trativas no son viables a gran
escala.
Son viables, pero politi-
camente inc6modas. El pre-
sidente no puede crear un
nuevo status migratorio para
estos j6venes, pero si puede
ampararlos de la deportaci6n,
como grupo, en tanto haya
una resoluci6n legislative.
Soplan vientos electorales
y el president Obama quiere
comunicarle a los votantes la-
tinos que vuelvan a apoyarlo
en el 2012 aunque haya de-
portado a media humanidad.
Interesantemente, algunos
de los participants dijeron a


la prensa que una de las ideas
planteadas en el encuentro es
que hay que lograr que la co-
munidad hispana tenga una
mejor imagen para ganar mAs
adeptos a la reform.
O sea, eque la falta de una
reform migratoria se debe a
un problema de imagen de la
comunidad hispana? Que yo
sepa, quien tiene un proble-
ma de imagery entire un sector
de la comunidad latina es el
president por sus political
migratorias.
Para mejorar esa imagen
del president probablemente
se renueven los esfuerzos de
tratar de impulsar el DREAM
Act en el Congreso, algo poco
viable en una Camara Baja
de mayoria republican. O se
intent mejorar el process de
adjudicaci6n de esas acciones
diferidas caso por caso para
que sea mas uniform y expe-
dite y no se tome literalmen-
te en un via crucis para estos
j6venes.
Esto seria bienvenido pero
no le quita m6ritos a la peti-
ci6n de que se ampare de la
deportaci6n a TODOS los j6-
venes elegibles al DREAM Act.
Porque mientras no ocu-
rra, miles de Marianos, j6ve-
nes productivos y talentosos
que no tienen un problema
de imagen, siguen en un lim-
bo migratorio y el suelo que
pisan puede temblar en cual-
quier moment.

va y analista de America's Voice


Al Pie de la Letra

(Viene de la pigina 1)
como esta, no se puede menos
que pensar en el nerviosismo
de quienes la llevaron a cabo.
Sin embargo, el sentido de
indulgencia ha sido al reves,
tratando de hacer sentir cor-.
pasi6n por alguien carente de
este sentimiento, invirtiendo
la carga emotional del suceso
hacia quienes sencillamente
lograron lo que cualquier ser
human habria querido: la
desaparici6n fisica de un indi-
viduo deleznable.
Pero la manipulaci6n de
la informaci6n en las mesas
de redacci6n de las agencies
internacionales de noticias
quiere hacer ver un crime
donde no lo hay, cuando, por
ejemplo, luego de las declara-


ciones del portavoz de la Casa
Blanca (a quien deberian des-
tituir por torpe) al decir que
Bin Laden estaba desarmado,
han querido hacer ver una in-
justicia o al menos un exceso
en la accion.
Menos mal que en las de-
claraciones mds recientes de
personeros del gobierno han
aclarado que el asesino saudi
intent alcanzar un fusil AK-
47, como los que exhibe en los
videos donde se muestra como
un asesino sin pudor, raz6n
por la cual resultara abatido
en un process que dur6 minu-
tos y en el cual no es possible
sentarse a reflexionar sino ac-
tuar sobre la march.
Quiza han sido excesivas
las actitudes de euforia de


americanos que salieron a
las calls a festejar el ajusti-
ciamiento, porque como dijo
un habitante de Tampa que
se encontraba en Nueva York
aquel dia tragico, "nosotros no
somos como ellos", aludiendo
a las muestras de alegria y
desenfreno que mostraron se-
guidores del Islam en el mun-
do, cuando vieron caer las to-
rres gemelas.
Se ha hecho justicia y es
bueno que Estados Unidos
salga de la bruma que causa
lo "politicamente correct" y
comience a llamar las cosas
por su nombre, para asumir
sin complejos el liderazgo del
mundo porque "el que a hierro
mata, no puede morir a som-
brerazos".





-Una oraci6n serena por los caidos

Oficiando como escudero (III)


Por Leonardo Venta
La semana pasada detuve el
relate de mis aventuras como
escudero del ingenioso caba-
llero don Quijote, dudando
abiertamente de su cordura.
Al actual recuento, se le su-
man nuevos comentarios del
historiador moro Cide Hamete
Benengeli, quien mete la
cuchara en todo. Seguin la
opinion de cierto estudio-
so cuyo nombre no voy a
mencionar para no restar-
le protagonismo a mi buen
Sefior don Quijote -, con la
inserci6n de Cide Hamete,
como narrador, se esti-
mula la ambigiiedad y se
conjetura lo narrado, pro-
vey6ndole inusitado inte-
res a la obra. No obstante,
les aconsejo que no crean
nada de lo que dice el moro
ni su traductor. Cr6anme 2
s6lo a mi.
Lamento much, es-
timado lector, que tenga .
que cuestionarse tanto la -
originalidad (verosimilitud)
como el origen (qui6n na-
rra) de la historic. Pero sos-
pecho, que a estas alturas .
ya advertird el mecanismo
ludico de la novela. Hasta
mi Sefior, don Quijote, me
ha comentado que un critic
literario ruso, llamado Mijail
Bajtin, ha expresado que nues-
tra novela "esta directamente
organizada como un juego gro-
tesco con todos sus atributos".
iQue audacia la de este ruso!
dLlamarnos grotescos?
Para el tal Bajtin, seguin
anota mi Sefior, nuestra nove-
la reine "todas las posibilida-
des artisticas de lo heterogl6-
sico y del discurso novelesco
internamente dialogizado". Asi
entire mi Sefior y yo se esta-
blece la reciprocidad dial6gi-
ca emisor-destinatario. Dicho
dialogismo se opone al mono-
logismo de la Edad Media, cu-
yas voces respondian a estilo,
entonaci6n y lexico uniforms,
suerte de estereotipados ,pa-
trones. eSerd todo esto cierto?
Lo que si s6 es que en esta
novela, que me ha hecho tan
famoso como escudero, los li-
mites entire lo real y lo idealiza-
do se confunden entire una at-
m6sfera neblinosa que Hlaman
ambigiedad. No hay nada fijo,
sino acometedores oscilantes
matices.
Me coment6, tambi6n, un


lector-amigo que siempre me
describe, para trastornarme con
sus eruditos comentarios, que
en uno de los textos tempra-
nos de un tal Borges, "Pierre
Menard, autor del Quijote", el
narrador formula: "La verdad
hist6rica, para l1 [Menard], no
es lo que sucedi6; es lo quejuz-


march, escudero y caballero,
intercambiando ideas, hasta
l1egar a una venta que el in-
genioso hidalgo confundi6 con
castillo.
Mas tarde, arribamos al ul-
timo segment del Primer libro
de Don Quijote que irrumpe
con la historic amorosa en-


Don Quijote por Van Gogh


gamos que sucedi6", es decir,
la percepci6n de la realidad.
El sujeto de la representaci6n
(el que conoce) y el objeto de la
misma (lo que se conoce), se-
gin mi amigo, estan condicio-
nados por el espacio, el tiempo
y la causalidad. Este concept,
que confieso no entender muy
bien, 6qu6 mas puede esperar-
se de este pobre Sancho?, pa-
rece sugerir que el objeto ca-
rece de existencia fuera de la
representaci6n. Eh ahi, insisted
mi amigo, el lector audaz, que
tanto en Borges como en Cer-
vantes, el entender quien es el
que narra, es decir, el sujeto
de la representaci6n, el que
conoce, tiene una connotaci6n
trascendente.
Volviendo a la aparente
simplicidad de nuestros epi-
sodios novelescos, y dejando a
un lado lo critic, mientras mi
Sefior y yo reposibamos en un
prado, su Rocinante provoc6
un nuevo altercado al arrimar-
se a las jacas de unos crueles
arrieros que terminaron apa-
lendolo. Mal parados salimos
nosotros tambi6n por defender
a Rocinante. Continuamos la


tre Dorotea y don Fernando,
estrechamente relacionada
con la de Cardenio y Luscin-
da. Ademds, Dorotea se hace
pasar por la princess Micomi-
cona, en confabulaci6n con
el barbero y el sacerdote para
lograr que don Quijote retorne
a su aldea, sano yjuicioso. So-
bre ese episodio hablaremos la
semana pr6xima... Agra-
decemos a los lectores que
nos han escrito a leoventa@
hotmail.com. Uno, llamado
Drope Onirem me confiesa que
al caer la noche, confunde los
cristales de las ventanas de su
habitaci6n con coloridos vi-
trales de castillos medievales
y renacentistas; ademds me
cuenta que espera ilusionado
el reencuentro con Don Quijo-
te cada noche o leer un nuevo
articulo de la series "Oficiando
como escudero".
Si aun no tiene el libro,
c6mprelo; o adqui6ralo pres-
tado en cualquier biblioteca
public. Leerlo es una expe-
riencia.catartica, purificadora,
que todos necesitamos experi-
mentar para nuestro mejora-
miento human.

Muerte de Julio Cesar

l 15 de marzo de. 44
A durante una reunion
del Senado, es asesinado .
el emperador romano
Julio C sar. La acci6n fue
perpetrada por un grupo
de senadores que alegaban
actuar en defense de la
Repiblica. Un afio antes,
tras ven.cer en la guerra f
civil iniciada en el 49 AC, ~.
y poner todo el mundo
romano bajo su control, el '
gobernante fue nombrado
dictador vitalicio. Entre -
los asesinos de Julio
Cesar estaban dos de sus antiguos y mis queridos

En Pocas Palabras
Abel Ibarra
Esta secci6n estd destinada a comentar el
origen de laspalabras que conforman nuestro
idioma espaftol de todos los dias. Para decirlo
en t&rminos tecnicos, lo que estamos buscan-
do es la etimologia de los vocablos que se han
venido formando y desarrollando a lo largo
de la historic, para que podamos comunicar-
nos con el mundo en la lengua de Cervantes.
Cosmetico
Hay palabras que sirven para adornar la vida cotidiana,
para darle un sentido est6tico a las cosas y despojarlas de
su cardcter banal, con lo cual les aportan un significado
que parece caido del cielo. Eso lo vamos a demostrar, hoy,
en pocas palabras con Cosmetico.
El solo sonido de la palabra cosmetico nos conduce ha-
cia otra mas corta pero de una dimension infinita, como lo
es cosmos, cuya sola enunciaci6n, nos hace saltar como un
cohete hacia el espacio exterior.
Cosmos, viene del griego Kosm6s, que significa orden,
arreglo, adorno, es decir, la manera como estA organizado
el universe, que, de tanta perfecci6n, result bello, igual a
las palabras de nuestro idiorna que brillan como estrellas.
Cosm6tico viene entonces de Cosmos y no cabe duda de
que significa arreglo o adorno, sobre todo cuando las mu-
jeres embadurnan sus caras con products que las ayudan
a realzar'su belleza.

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

Puede calificar para su residencia permanent
como victim de violencia domestic
Pregunta: Me llamo Maria. Tengo mds de 5 afos en los
EE. UU y entr6 indocumentada a este pais. En este moment
estoy casada con un resident permanent de los EE.UU.
Tengo dos hijos menores de dieciocho afios de edad que tuve
con mi pareja anterior, que tambi6n estan indocumentados
en este pais. Mi esposo nunca se ha ocupado en hacer mi
petici6n familiar con inmigraci6n, en cabio me vivia abusando
fisica y mentalmente. La filtima vez, uno de mis hijos llam6
a la policia y se levant6 un report. Mi esposo fue a la cArcel.
Una de mis amigas me ha informado que yo podria calificar
para mi residencia permanent debido al abuso dom6stico
y que yo podria hacer una petici6n sin la autorizaci6n y la
ayuda de esposo. Quisiera saber si esto es cierto y si yo podria
calificar para mi residencia permanent como victim de
violencia dom6stica.
Respuesta: Maria, usted califica para hacer su petici6n de-
bido a violencia dom6stica, ya que usted ha sido abusada por
su esposo fisica y mentalmente. El formulario que necesita
someter con inmigraci6n sin costo alguno es el 1-360. La in-
formaci6n que debe adjuntar con este formulario son pruebas
del abuso fisico y mental que le caus6 su esposo, asi como
algiCn report medico que haya podido obtener. Usted puede
adjuntar copia del report de la policia y la decision de la
corte del arrest de su esposo cuando su hijo llam6 a la po-
licia. Tambi6n puede adjuntar una carta notariada contando
detalladamente de todas las veces que su esposo la abusa-
ba. Otra informaci6n que necesita adjuntar con esta petici6n
es las pruebas de que usted, estd casada con su esposo de
buena fe y lo que puede adjuntar son cobros, recibos, cuenta
bancaria, seguro de caro o m6dico y otras cosas que est6n a
nombre de usted y 61. La filtima informaci6n que somete con
esta a inmigraci6n es copia de su acta de matrimonio, divor-
cios y copia de la residencia permanent de su esposo. Una
vez inmigraci6n le apruebe su petici6n 1-360, usted calificard
inmediatamente para su permiso de trabajo y en aproxima-
damente cinco afios, tan pronto est6 disponible su turno de
su residencia, usted podrd solicitar su tarjeta de residencia
permanent sinningun problema.

ra ronda de esta temporada,
Boston perdi6 los dos prime-

"Podriamos poner eso en el
vestuario, pero creo que, mas
recientemente, para nosotros,
en los octavos de final de esta
temporada estabamos per-
diendo la series 3-1 y volvimos
a casa a batir a los Pingui-

Bulls aumentan seguridad
en estadio
Los simpatizantes que acu-


dan a los partidos de la semi-
final de la Conferencia Este
entire los Bulls de Chicago y
los Hawks de Atlanta encon-
trardn mayores medidas
de seguridad luego de la
muerte del lider terrorist
Osama bin Laden.
Los seguidores seran
revisados con un detector
de metales cuando entren
al United Center luego
que el Departamento de
Estado advirti6 de un "au-
mento en el potential de
violencia antiestadouni-
dense.
El sitio en internet del

El MVP. Mas joven en la
NBA
El astro de Chicago Bulls
Derrick Rose fue elegido el Ju-
gador Mas Valioso de la NBA
y pasara a la historic como el
canastero mas joven en reci-
bir ese galard6n.


Derrick Rose
Derrick Rose


La noticia no sorprende a
nadie.
Rose es el segundo jugador
de los Bulls que gana el JMV,
pero todavia le falta much
para alcanzar a Michael Jor-
dan, quien recibi6 el honor en
cinco ocasiones. En su terce-
ra campafia en la NBA, el base
condujo a los bulls a su me-
jor temporada desde la era de
Jordan y Scottie Pippen.
"Seria una meta fabulosa,
incredible, que a comienzo del
afio dije que queria lograr"',
dijo Rose recientemente cuan-
do le preguntaron lo que sig-
nificaria obtener el reconoci-
miento. "Seria algo tremendo,
no s61o para mi, sino para
toda la ciudad".Rose puso fin
al reinado de LeBron James,
ganador del premio las dos il-
timas temporadas.
Rose, de 22 afios, redonde6
un promedio de 25 puntos,
con 7,7 asistencias por parti-
do. El mas valioso mas joven
de la historic hasta ahora era
Wes Unseld, quien obtuvo ese
premio en 1969 a los 23 afios,
jugando para los Bullets de
Baltimore.
Oriundo de la zona sur de
Chicago, Rose mantuvo su


impresionante curva ascen-
dente esta campafia.
El base gan6 el premio al
novato del afo en- su prime-
ra temporada, y fue elegido al
juego de estrellas en sus dos
primeras campafas en la liga.
Rose carg6 a los Bulls esta
temporada, despues que el
equipo no logr6 fichar a una
superestrella como James o
Dwayne Wade en la agencia
libre.
Chicago despidi6 al entre-
nador Vinny Del Negro y lo re-
emplaz6 con Tom Thibodeau.
Tambi6n contrat6 a Carlos
Boozer y Kyle Korver, para
contar con mis poder en la
ofensiva y una rotaci6n de va-
rios jugadores.
Los Bulls tuvieron marca
de 62-60 y ventaja de local en
todos los playoffs. Chicago en-
frenta en la segunda ronda de
la postemporada a los Hawks
de Atlanta, que los derrotaron
el lunes en el primer partido.

El porcentaje de juga-

"Esto preocupa tan-
to a Grandes Ligas
como a los lideres de la

El numero de ge-
rentes negros y latinos
baj6 de 10 al comienzo de la
temporada 2010 a seis en la
actualidad, y el porcentaje de
entrenadores negros y latinos
cay6 de 31 a 29%. No hay ne-
gros que sean presidents de
equipos, y s6lo Pam Gardner,
president de negocios de los
Astros de Houston, cabe en
esa categoria.
Los gerentes generals ne-
gros y latinos se redujeron de
cinco a cuatro, y a nivel de
vicepresidentes las proporcio-
nes se redujeron para negros

abril cambi6 el libreto.
La primera prueba de la
Triple Corona no tiene un cla-
ro favorite, asi que para los
apostadores este Derby debe-
ra dejar muy content al que
ponga a ganador.
El reves de Uncle Mo tam-
bien ha dejado perplejo a Plet-
cher.
"Ganar el Derby es increi-
ble; fen6meno", dijo. "No te
cambia much la vida. Tienes
que seguir pagando tus deu-
das. Tu esposa piensa que tra-
bajas demasiado. Y si pierdes
en el Wood Memorial, todo el
mundo quiere saber porque".
Quizas fue la infecci6n gas-
trointestinal que se le diag-
nostic6 tras la carrera, Uncle
Mo dominaba a falta del ulti-
mo cuarto de milla, pero dos
caballos le rebasaron y acab6
tercero, a un cuerpo.
Pletcher dice que el potro
ha evolucionado bien al tra-
tamiento, pero el propietario
Mike Repole estima en "50-
50" su presencia en el Derby.
"Por mas que quiera estar
en el Derby de Kentucky, por
mas que quiera ganar el Der-
by de Kentucky, nunca sacri-
ficaria la salud de un caballo
por mi ego", afirm6 Repole.
El cartel para esta Triple
Corona esta repleto de eaba-
llos con lesiones o que no han
hecho mayor cosa en la ante-
sala Churchill Downs.
To Honor and Serve, Pre-


Super Saver se encarg6 de dar
la respuesta. Ahora, sin em-
bargo, el preparador tiene que
lidiar con las interrogantes
sobre Uncle Mo, uno de sus
candidates para la carrera del
sibado.
El potro, el mejor dosaie-
ro en 2010, se flore6 en sus
cuatro primeras carreras al
ganar con un total combinado

Los asesores del presiden-

planteado tres posibilidades
para esta operaci6n: enviar en

o seguir esperando y recopilar

una copia del supuesto escon-
dite donde los soldados de la
unidad especial ensayaron el
asalto al edificio. Los helic6pte-
ros con soldados de elite debe-
rian despegar desde Yalalabad,
tambien en Afganistan.
Pero entire los politicos, mi-
litares y miembros de los servi-
cios secrets tambien cundian
la preocupaci6n y los nervios.
"No hubo ninguna reuni6n
en la que alguien no nombrara
el 'Black Hawk Down", recor-
d6 un miembro del gobierno
en referencia al trauma que
sufri6 Estados Unidos cuando
en 1993 dos.helic6pteros tipo
"Black Hawk" fueron derriba-
dos en Somalia, relat6 DPA.
Pero seglin un agent del
ISI, hasta cuatro helic6pteros
norteamericanos participaron
en el asalto de la residencia.

tos acerca de los detalles de
la operaci6n en la que muri6
el terrorist, el portavoz de la
Casa Blanca, Jay Carney, pro-
porcion6 nuevas precisiones,
resei6 Reuters.
Cuando entr6 el comando
estadounidense en el complejo
de la localidad de Abbottabad,
en las cercanias de Islamabad,
donde se encontraba "Ger6ni-
mo", el nombre en clave que se
le habia asignado al terrorist
mas buscado del mundo, Bin
Laden present6 resistencia".
"El personal estadouniden-
se sobre el terreno actu6 con
la mayor profesionalidad y lo
abati6 en la operaci6n por la
resistencia que opuso", dijo
Carney.
SegiCn indic6, en el momen-
to de ser alcanzado (en la fren-
te y en el pecho), Bin Laden
"no estaba armado". "Se pue-
de opener resistencia sin estar
armado", puntualiz6.
De acuerdo con esta des-
cripci6n, dos equipos estado-
unidenses se dividieron entire
sendos edificios principles del
complejo residential, en el que
vivia parte de la familiar de Bin
Laden junto con otras dos fa-
milias mis. Entraron a rapel.
El equipo SEAL que se en-
carg6 del edificio abati6 en la
primera plant a los dos men-
sajeros de Bin Laden, asi como
a "una mujer que muri6 en el
cruce de fuego", acot6 Carney.
"Bin Laden y su familiar fue-
ron hallados en la segunda y
tercera plants del edificio",
agrega la correlaci6n de he-
chos leida por Carney, quien
dijo no poder precisar en que
piso exactamente se encontra-
ba el lider terrorist ni cuantas
personas mas alld de la mujer,
una de sus esposas y que re-
sult6 herida en una pierna
cuando "se abalanz6" contra
uno de los efectivos SEAL es-
tadounidenses, se encontra-
ban con 1l.


Despues del intent de re-
sistencia de su esposa, "se dis-
par6 contra Bin Laden y este
muri6", agrega el comunicado.
En 6ste, se insisted una vez
mas en que Bin Laden recibi6
sepultura en el mar "en con-
formidad con los preceptos y
practices islamicos".
El cuerpo de Bin Laden aca-
b6 a bordo del portaaviones
USS Carl Vinson, en el norte
del mar Arabigo, de acuerdo
con el recuento.
Sin embargo, afirm6 una
fuente de los servicios secrets
de Pakistan (ISI), que pidi6 el
anonimato, que tras el asal-
to al complejo residential las
fuerzas de EEUU se llevaron
no solo el cadaver de Bin La-
den sino de otra persona que
no pudo identificar, revel6 Efe.
El Gobierno de Pakist.n
asegur6 que tiene bajo custo-
dia a una esposa del lider te-
rrorista y a una de sus hijas,
de 12 o 13 afios, que fueron
detenidas tras la operaci6n.
Reacciones incendiarias
El vocero de la Casa Blan-
ca dijo que se estd evaluando
todavia la "conveniencia" de
publicar o no las fotos del ca-
diver de Bin Laden en vista de
que son "truculentas" y que
por lo tanto podrian provocar
una reacci6n "incendiaria" que
no beneficia a nadie.
Fuentes del Pentagono
afirman que la Casa Blanca
cuenta con tres series de do-
cumentos: fotos del cuerpo, vi-
deos de la ceremonia en que se
ech6 el cadAver al mar desde
el portaaviones Carl Vinson e
imagenes del interior de la re-
sidencia.
Por otro lado, el movimiento
taliban afgano dijo que no se
pronunciarA de manera "pre-
matura" sobre la muerte del
lider de Al Qaida, pues consi-
dera que Estados Unidos no
ha suministrado aion pruebas
s6lidas que la confirmed.

Estados Unidos acus6 ayer
a Siria de haber tomado "me-
didas francamente barbaras"
para reprimir la protest con-

sad.
Mark Toner, portavoz del
Departamento de Estado, de-
nunci6 el uso de carros, "una
vasta campafia de detencio-

en Deraa", asi como cortes de
agua y electricidad, mencion6

"Son medidas francamente
barbaras que se asimilan al
castigo colectivo de civiles ino-
centes", agreg6.
Los militants anti-regimen
recurrieron a sentadas perma-
nentes a partir del martes de
noche en las ciudades sirias,
cuando mas de mil personas
fueron detenidas estos ultimos
dos dias para intentar quebrar
el movimiento de protest sin
precedentes contra el regimen
del president Assad.
Al menos 1.000 personas
fueron arrestadas en los ilti-
mos dias durante una redada
del gobierno contra los activis-
tas y disidentes en Siria, infor-
m6 la television qatari Al Yazira
en base a los datos aportados
por un grupo defensor de los
derechos humans.

aflo de gracia de 2012. Hay
quienes veneran a la juventud
y castigan a los veterans por
su edad, y, los que descartan
a los j6venes y s61o valoran la
experiencia. Ambas posturas
son reaccionarias e inconve-
nientes. Lo procedente hoy es
la unidad political, generacio-
nal y de toda indole. La re-

Iker Casillas. La maestria, se-

Guia official de huracanes
esti disponible a trav6s de
todo el Condado
Si algo aprendimos de los
tornados de las pasadas se-
manas, es que hay que estar
preparados.
Debemos tener un plan de
emergencia y estar listos para
actuar en caso de desastre.
Debemos pensar en lo que po-
dria pasar a nuestras families
y a la comunidad en general si
surge un desastre.
Falta menos de un mes
para el comienzo de la tempo-
rada de huracanes en Flori-
da. Nadie puede predecir si el
area de Tampa Bay serd afec-
tada. Pero podemos estar pre-
parados en caso de que algo
asi sucediera.
Para ayudar a las personas
a prepararse, el Condado de
Hillsborough ha puesto a la
disposici6n de la comunidad
la Guia Oficial de Huracanes
2011, Guia Oficial para el
area de Tampa Bay. El mis-
mo esta disponible en ingles y
espafiol. La guia estara dispo-
nible en las oficinas de correo


y en las bibliotecas publicas.
Las estaciones de bombers
tendran copias disponibles en
las pr6ximas semanas. Tam-
bi6n pueden conseguirse por
Internet, a trav6s de la pagina
www.tbrpc.org/tampabaydi-
saster/hurricane_guide2011 /
HG 2011.html
La Guia Oficial de Huraca-
nes 2011, Guia Oficial para el
area de Tampa Bay, cubre to-
dos los aspects relacionados
con la preparaci6n que debe
hacerse contra un huracan.
Los directors de manejo de
emergencies desean que to-
dos los residents conozcan
su zona de evacuaci6n y a
donde tienen que ir en caso
de ser evacuados.
"Hay muchas ventajas
cuando uno vive aqui en el
area de Tampa Bay," dijo Jeff
Copeland, Director Interino
para emergencies del Conda-
do de Hillsborough. "Pero uno
de los retos que enfrentamos
cada afio es la temporada de
huracanes. Al final, cada cual
debe asumir su responsabi-
lidad y cuidar de su familiar.


Es por eso que necesita tener
un plan. Si usted esta fisica y
econ6micamente capacitado
para encargarse de su fami-
lia, debe sentarse con ellos y
trazar un plan. De esa mane-
ra, podemos enfocar nuestros
esfuerzos a ayudar a aquellos
que no pueden ayudarse a si
mismos."
Sabiendo qu6 hacer du-
rante una emergencia es tan
important como estar prepa-
rado para un desastre cuando
los segundos cuentan.
La temporada de huraca-
nes comienza el 1ro de junior
hasta el 30 de 1Ioviembre.
Podra tambi6n conseguir
su Guia de huracanes y reci-
bir respuestas a sus pregun-
tas el sabado 21 de mayo en
la Exposici6n Huracin 2011,
auspiciado por el Condado
de Hillsborough, la Ciudad

Homenaje a policies caidos
El Alcalde Bob Buckhorn
y la Jefe de Policia Jane Cas-
tor le rindieron un homena-
je a los policies caidos en el
cumplimiento de sus deberes
y a sus families en un even-
to annual destinado a tal fin.
Diez meses luego de los trdgi-
cos asesinatos de los Oficiales
Jeffrey Kocab y Officer David
Curtis, la Oficina Federal de
Servicios de Policia Orienta-
dos a la Comunidad ha expe-
dido un comunicado en rela-
ci6n a la bisqueda de Dontae
Morris, el asesino de estos
policies. Esta ha sido una de
las mas largas bisquedas de
un criminal en la historic del
Institute de Investigaciones
PCiblicas. La agencia federal
compartira en profundidad y
a nivel national revisard los
pormenores para permitirle a
las agencies de refuerzo de la
ley aprender de esta experien-
cia sostenida en Tampa.
CNA es una organizaci6n
sin fines de lucro que propor-
ciona investigaciones y and-
lisis de alto nivel a agencies
de gobierno locales, estadales
y federales en muchas areas,
incluyendo la seguridad.
Muerte cerebral
Un individuo que responded
al nombre de Dwayne Poole,
de veinticuatro afios de edad,
de la raza negra, cuya habita-
ci6n esta localizada en el 7919
North Lakeshore Drive #C,
Tampa, lanz6 a un beb6 so-
bre la cama causdndole con la
pared o el tocador, una herida
en la cabeza. El sospechoso
tambi6n admiti6 haberle pe-
gado con la mano abierta y


una correa que le caus6 dolor
en las nalgas y las piernas.
Esto se debi6 a un castigo que
le infligi6 por estar jugando
cerca del enchufe electrico de
una pared. Bomberos de la
ciudad de Tampa transporta-
ron al menor al Hospital St.
Joseph. La victim tuvo frac-
tura de crdneo que le caus6
sangramiento del cerebro.
De acuerdo a los doctors, la
victim tiene muerte cerebral
con minimas posibilidades de
sobrevivencia.
Intento de asesinato
El official Cain se despla-
zaba en direcci6n sur por la
calle 15 cuando vio a un ve-
hiculo sospechoso (Toyota
Cion) siendo manejado agresi-
vamente. El vehiculo adelant6
al menos tres vehiculos en el
trafico. Entre la calle 15 y la
Avenida Bouganvillia, el official
intent detener el trafico para
emitir una citaci6n al conduc-
tor. El conductor gir6 hacia
Bouganvillia y luego hacia el
sur en direcci6n hacia la calle
16 antes de escapar. El official
busc6 en la computadora el
numero de la licencia del indi-
viduo y descubri6 que su due-
io era solicitado por manejar
con una licencia suspendida.
El official llam6 por refuerzos
y dos oficiales se acercaron al
vehiculo para arrestar al con-
ductor. El individuo obedeci6
saliendo del vehiculo pero
luego atac6 al official Cain.
Un violent enfrentamiento se
dio entire ambos, lo cual fue
aprovechado por el sospecho-
so para extraer la pistola del
official de su funda. El official
Savitt alert al individu6 para


que soltara el arma o le dispa-
rarian, pero este no obedeci6
la orden. Fue entonces- cuan-
do el official, en resguardo de
la vida de su compafiero, le
hizo dos rondas de disparos,
hiri6ndolo de manera grave,
por lo cual fue trasladado al
Hospital St. Joseph en condi-
ciones critics.
Negligencia con niflos
Oficiales de la Policia de
Tampa arrestaron a una mu-
jer que dej6 solos en su casa a
sus tres hijos de mientras iba
hacia un bar. Un vecino vio a
los tres nifios de 3,5 y 7 afios
jugando fuera de la casa y lla-
m6 a la policia luego de saber
que estaban sin el cuidado
de adult alguno. Los oficia-
les acudieron a la vivienda,
un apartamento complex y
permanecieron mis o menos
durante 45 minutes, antes de
que Laraysha Adams regresa-
ra. Los oficiales la arrestaron
y le hicieron tres cargos por
negligencia y descuido de los
nifios. Un Investigador de Pro-
tecci6n a Menores estd a car-
go del caso.
Arrollamiento en la via
Cerca de las 7:05 de la no-
che, un peat6n fue atropellado
mientras caminaba por Balm
Road & Grady Sweat Lane.
La colici6n ocurri6 cuando el
individuo caminaba en direc-
ci6n oeste de Balm Road &
Grady Sweat Lane, cerca del
borde de la carretera y fue
arrollado por un Pontiac Bon-
neville, SE, posiblemente de
1992 0 1993, de color verde,
similar al de la foto, que tam-
bien marchaba en la misma
direcci6n.


Bajo cost y valor son decisions inteligentes,

especialmente en estos tiempos dificiles.

Vargas Llosa celebra

muerte de Bin Laden


El premio N6bel de litera-
tura Mario Vargas Llosa afir-
m6 hoy que la desaparici6n de
Bin Laden, "uno de los gran-
des criminals de nuestra
6poca", "es algo que tenemos
que celebrar todos", si bien l1
habria preferido, afiadi6, que
sus crimenes hubiera sido
sancionados "de acuerdo a la
legalidad".El escritor se mani-
fest6 en estos t6rminos en Ma-
drid, poco antes de inaugurar
una exposici6n en torno a su
obra en la Facultad de Filolo-
gia de la Universidad Complu-
tense.
Bin Laden, dijo Vargas Llo-
sa, "es un hombre que ha ge-
nerado un tipo de fanatismo,
por desgracia, seguido por
much gente y que ha causa-
do incontables sufrimientos
en el mundo enter, incluida,


por supuesto, Espafia, y parti-
cularmente Madrid", coment6,
en alusi6n a los atentados del
11 de marzo.
"Ojald ese golpe signifique
el principio del fin de Al Qae-
da, aunque todavia quedan
muchos fandticos sueltos, por
supuesto, pero creo que es un
hecho que tiene una significa-
ci6n, un simbolismo; y siem-
pre da un cierto alivio sentir
que los grandes criminals de
alguna manera son sanciona-
dos", prosigui6.
Con respect a las critics
que esta muerte ha suscitado,
Vargas Llosa sefial6 que 61 hu-
biera preferido "que Bin Laden
hubiera sido juzgado y que
sus crimenes hubieran sido
expuestos y hubieran sufrido
una sanci6n de acuerdo a la
legalidad".

Celebrazioni della Festa delle Mamme Letter to the Editor


Questa prossima domenica,
il mondo celebra e festeggia
la figure della persona piu'
important nell'ambito della
famiglia, la mamma.
Ritengo sia il giorno piu'
bello dell'anno perche' in que-
sto giorno riconosciamo alla
persona che ci ha dato la vita,
purtroppo in molti casi ci si
ricorda della propria madre
solo in questo giorno, la madre
bisognerebbe festeggiarla ogni
giorno dell'anno, meno male
che sono in minoranza coloro
i quali spesso dimenticano di-
avere una mamma.
L'usanza di festeggiare la
mamma ci riporta a molti anni
addietro e la sua origine ci por-
ta negli Stati Uniti.
La Festa della mamma nac-
que negli Stati Uniti nel 1907,
su proposta di Anna Jarvis, di
Philadelphia e fu ufficializzata
nel 1914 dal president Wilson
con la delibera del Congres-
so di festeggiarla la second
domenica di maggio, come
espressione pubblica di more
e gratitudine per le madri e
speranza per la pace. La festa
si e diffusa in molti Paesi del
mondo, ma cambiano le date
in cui e festeggiata.
L'Italia adotta la data ame-
ricana.
Oggi le mamme di quasi
tutto il mondo ricevono doni
dai loro figli. L'usanza di re-
galare rose rosa e di portare
rose bianche sulle tombe delle
mamme morte e quasi uni-
versale.
Le origini di questa festa si
perdono nei secoli e nei popoli,
fino a risalire agli antichi greci
ed agli antichi romani, che pro-
prio in questo period dell'anno
celebravano le divinity legate
alla fertility.
E' nel mese di Maggio, infat-
ti, che il risveglio della natural
si fa piu evidence e gioioso,


nell'esplosione dei color e dei
profumi, diffusi dalla prima
aria calda.
I1 mondo contadino e pa-
storale, la cui vita era profon-
damente legata alle stagioni
ed al clima, non poteva che
salutare con feste e sagre la
fine dell'inverno, e la prossi-
ma maturazione dei raccolti,
accuratamente preparati nei
mesi pil freddi.
La festa della mamma e
una delle feste "laiche" pif
apprezzate in tutto il mondo.
Ma, in questo lieto giorno, in
cui le mamme sono circonda-
te di more, affetto e piccole
attenzioni si dovrebbe anche
riflettere sulla figure ed il ruolo
della "mamma" nella nostra
society.
Nonostante il riconoscimen-
to della maternity quale impor-
tante funzione social, ancora
oggi sono soprattutto le donne
a sopportare il carico del lavoro
di cura che la nascita di un
figlio (o piu di uno) comporta.
In particolare, proprio le donne
italiane devono lavorare molto
piu delle loro college ameri-
cane ed europee, dal moment
che oltre al lavoro esterno,
svolgono quasi interamente da
sole i lavori domestic.
Ancora oggi, nonostante i
numerosi provvedimenti legi-
slativi e l'aumento delle strut-
ture pubbliche e private di
servizi e sostegno alle famiglie,
sono le madri a dover rinuncia-
re alle proprie aspirazioni per
dedicarsi alla crescita dei figli.
Naturalmente, oggi le donne
hanno molte piu opportunity
rispetto ad un passato non
troppo lontano, eppure la ma-
ternita non ha ancora trovato
una collocazione naturall"
nella society, in quanto i tempi
ed i ritmi di quest'ultima non
consentono di conciliare sere-
namente il desiderio di mater-


nitA con quello professional
e pif in general "pubblico".
In assenza di una coscienza
collettiva in grado di assumersi
proporzionalmente le respon-
sabilita in tema di maternity,
le mamme devono sostituirsi
con ability da giocoliere ad
ogni ruolo, improvvisarsi e
soprattutto dividersi, spesso
rinunciando a se stesse.
Allora, in questo contest
social, la Festa della Mamma
quale significato ha?
SOgni celebrazione ha una
funzione all'interno di un grup-
po sociale....e, purtroppo, al di
1a di false retoriche anche una
Festa della Mamma ne ha una.
La comunita non si raccoglie
piu come un tempo intorno
alla divinitA della procreazio-
ne, bensi intorno ad un ruolo
predefinito che sembra in-
tenzionata a voler mantenere
immutato.
Una sorta di "contentino"
alle donne, che decidono di
dedicarsi alla famiglia, rinun-
ciando ai propri sogni ed alle
proprie aspirazioni.

Tampa, Florida
April 27, 2011
Dear Patrick,
United States History
(which I taught for some years
in high school) exposed me to
very pertinent facts about our
country. This limited knowl-
edge gave me a measure of
license to venture some gen-
eralizations on the subject.
Among these is one of my fa-
vorites dealing with a current
American self-imposed issued
I express it like this:
The United States of Ameri-
ca is populated by people who
came here from someplace
else. who in turn are discom-
forted when people come here
from someplace else.
I have never heard so much
talk about a subject that is so
very much a part of our histo-
ry. Undoubtedly the one char-
acteristic that truly identifies
Americans; the one thing that
is true of all who live here
is that we are all children of
immigration. So heavily has
the subject soaked my small
brain that I (like Don Quijote
de La Mancha with knight er-
rantry) have become obsessed
to the point of deluding myself
into believing that I have been
contacted via air mail by im-
portant heads of state. While
in a very deep sleep a few days
ago; an angel appeared to me
in a vision. He was wearing a
U.S. Post Office uniform, all in
mailman blues, except for the
wings. After placing two let-
ters in the in-box on my desk,
he winked at me and then
went aloft into the moonlit
sky. I read them immediately.
When I awoke there were no
letters to show but here is the
essence of what I recall:
My Dear Joaquin,
We have a most perplexing
problem in our country. Per-
haps your profound intellect
and universal knowledge of all
things can provide our people
some path to take out of this
quagmire.
A lack of stringent enforce-

something like this:

Jerry Lisker in Lisker-Land


Jerry Lisker was the top
boxing writer for the NY Post,
which is to say, he was the
top boxing writer in New York,
which means the top boxing
writer in the country, and
that means in the world. Yes,
perhaps that is a stretch, but
who else could string together
sentences like Lisker? I can
only think of one, Hugh Mc-
Ilvaney of Scotland, and they
were close. And both were
brilliant.
Both had a breezy dream
about the way they looked at
the hard sport of boxing. They
could find a laugh where none
existed. They had an ear for
humor in boxing and where
there wasn't any, they could
make it up.
I shall give you a prime ex-
ample of a Liskerism. It was
the second Ali-Frazier fight.
Ali had given Frazier a mer-
cy fight. Off a savage beating
that George Foreman had giv-
en Frazier, Joe Frazier looked
shot and finished. The beat-
ing Joe had taken from Ali in
the first Ali fight had left him
marked. Foreman compound-
ed his shot condition. Ali felt
sorry for Frazier. Ali was look-
ing for an easy fight. He was
shot and, off the Foreman
beating, much worse than the
boxing people thought. Ali was
in tip top shape. The consen-
sus of opinion of Ali's chances
was an easy fight for Ali.
I was one of the Ali Inner
Circle who had the opposite
opinion. Joe Frazier was nev-
er soft. And he wasn't shot,
so I went into the corner with
trepidation. Joe Frazier is still
tough old Joe Frazier. Rough
as a cob, hard as a rail. Tough
ol' smoking Joe Frazier. Yeah.
The first four rounds were
all Ali. He gave Joe a box-
ing lesson, and in the fourth
round virtually knocked out
Joe. He buckled Joe, and but
for an error of the referee, who
stepped in to save Joe from
going down. It looked like it
was going according to form.
Round five would see Ali put
Frazier down.
But Joe Frazier was a
tough nut to crack. He got off
his stool with fire in his eyes.
Joe was "smoking".
Joe Frazier gave Ali a sav-
age body beating. As Ali had
in his first fight, Ali fell back
into the ropes and took a sav-
age body beating. Ali took the
pounding. The next round
was the same. Joe was en-
couraged by the beating he
was inflicting on Ali, who ap-
peared helpless, and leaned
against the ropes.
I had taken Lister with me
into the corner, so he could
hear everything said by Ali,
Angelo, and me, and listen
to the jabber of the hysterical
Bundini. Ali punched Bundini
in the mouth and drove him
down the ladder and down
the stairs. "Shut up! I know
what I'm doing" said Ali. I, for
one, was glad somebody knew
what Ali was doing. All I saw
was Frazier was beating Ali's
body to a pulp.
Finally, at the height of a
viscous Joe Frazier two-fisted
pounding as Ali tied up Fra-
zier's arm in a bear hug, Ali
grunted something in Fra-
zier's ear, which seemed to
energize Frazier, and he un-
leashed a two-fisted attack to
Ali's ribs.
Both Lisker and I were up
on our feet yelling instruc-


tions to Ali. The bell saved Ali.
Lisker, his black eyes ablaze
in surprise. "Did you hear
that?" said Lisker.
"No, what?" I said. The
noise was so loud, no. one
could parse out the words
from Ali.
"Ali just said, 'And they told
me you were shot, Joe...' said
Ali as he wound up to take
Joe's next barrage."
"They lied, Champ, they
lied to you." Joe then un-
corked the hardest punches
to Ali's ribs, which almost
put Ali down. Ali's face looked
stricken.
"Wow! Write that down for
your lead," I said, thinking of
Lisker's column the next day.
"Yeah," said Lisker but he
didn't write it down.As a mat-
ter of fact, he didn't write any-
thing down. It was all record-
ed in Liskerland.
Next day I searched his
masterful write-up of the fight
and that quote was deep in
the story. He simply pissed it
away.
"Why was that? That was
the key to the brutal fight that
followed. And the quote was
the bitter truth of the fight."
"It was too good," said
Lisker, and I came to realize
when those quotes came to
Lisker, it was just that we had
stepped into Liskerland. He
heard what he heard. No one
else did.
I was sitting next to
Liskerr, and I didn't hear that
exchange. What did it mean?
What had happened?
It meant the exchange had
not happened. Lisker made it
up! It was a Lisker delusion.
It was my introduction to
Lisker's style of reporting. If it
didn't happen, he made it up.
It should have happened. In
Lisker's theatre of his mind.
It is now several decades
since that memorable night
and I find myself telling that
story when I give speeches
and interviews. It is always a
smash hit of my speech. Why
not? If you live in the delu-
sional world of Jerry Lisker,
the fight is always better and
the punches are sharper and
the drama heightened when
seen through Lisker's eyes in
Liskerland.
Well, hell, what was wrong
with that? As Lisker saw it,
to make it better, to tell the
audience what they saw. And
what they saw, came through
Liskerland! I agreed with that.
Hell, it's only a sport, an en-
tertainment. Everyone in New
York expected an exciting
write up of a fight. Lisker told
it better than it was.
Jerry Lisker came off the
pages of Damon Runyon. All
Manhattan bars loved Jerry.
He was welcomed to every
bar. Like an Irish drunk, Jer-
ry could story-tell until dawn,
and likely as not, punctuate
his stories with a fist fight or
two. Jerry had been a boxer
at the University of Iowa; and
the knock on him was he took
boxing seriously, and always
wanted to kill his opponent.
He was tougher than his
hands. The team consisted
of Jerry and Murray Gaby, a
Newark, New Jersey, Jew who
was also a great painter who
took lessons from George Gro-
sz, and a tall happy-go-lucky
street kid named Joey with
a penchant for gambling and
was always one step ahead of
the law. They quit their schol-


arship and filtered down the
boxing chain and into Jersey
Boxing.
If there was one thing
about Jerry Lisker that out-
did his passion in life, it was
his passionate love of his little
daughter Holly. Jerry's ex-
travagant praise of Holly's ac-
complishments knew no lim-
its. Holly was everything great
in Jerry's book. We who lived
near Liskerland, the land of
delusion, took his Holly sto-
ries with a grain of salt.
One Sunday morning, on
a slow day in sports, Lisker
wrote his Sunday column on
Holly-Dolly hitting a home-
run for her team, which was a
game her team was losing 1-0.
From then on, for the seven
years, she played softball'in
New York. Lisker called her in
print Home-run Holly Lisker.
The fact was Holly never
hit another homerun for the
rest of her seven year career.
As a matter of fact, she really
didn't hit a homerun that first
time. With two out, runners
on second and third, Holly-
Dolly came up to bat. She hit
a soft loopy bouncing ball to
the pitcher, which the pitch-
er misplayed, and when she
recovered threw it high over
the first baseman's head. The
ball rolled on into Canterfield.
Holly-Dolly was a fast base
runner. She ran past first
base and second. Centerfield
picked up the ball and pitched
it to the second base, but way
over the head of second. Holly
chugged past second and into
third. Left field retrieved the
overthrown ball and threw it
to third base. Again the ball
sailed in to third, but over
third into the bleachers. Holly
kept running and scored a
homerun of fielder's errors.
Score 3-1, Holly-Dolly was
given a homerun on fielder's
errors but in Lisker's agitated
delusional mind, he wrote in
the Sunday New York Post:
"Lisker's mighty homerun
wins the game 3-1, Holly
Lisker is the hero of the day
today!" And so, for as long as
Holly-played softball, she was
known in print as Homerun
Holly. Holly played for seven
years morel


So, okay, we knew Lisker's
ability to over-elaborate a
sports story and forgave his
father's pride. She was a legit-
imate softball star, player and
pitcher for seven more years.
So, well forgive Homerun Hol-
ly. So what?
Holly was small but cute
as hell and she was filled with
ambition to be like her father.
His exploits through college
and in life were mighty events.
Lisker saw all events in his life
as mighty struggles which he
Fought and prevailed. In his
rough neighborhood, Lisker
was a legend. And the stories
he told of his fights made him
even more legendary. Holly
grew up by his side. She was
a daddy's girl.
She couldn't fight, nor cre-
ate earth shaking struggles,
but she was a good student,
a musician and grew up with
the Lisker credo.
"If you want to do something
in life, put your head down
and keep trying until you ac-
complished your goal, and you
will succeed." Jerry was very
proud of Holly's ambitious
drive to succeed. She accom-
plished all the goals she set for
herself. Early in her sports life
she excelled in softball. She
won many pitching cups. Jerry
covered her stories in the NY
Post. His editor looked the oth-
er way. She was good, but this
was a paper for adult sports.
Still, it was Holly-Dolly.
The day I got on a Brit-
ish airliner to go to London,
Jerry rushed up with a piece
of paper which contained
Holly-Dolly's address in Lon-
don. Proudly, he wrote she in
RADA (Royal Academy of Dra-
matic Art) and as we left for
London Jerry said she was in
the Royal Academy of Ballet.
Which one? He was vague.
My Tina was a wide-eyed
10-year-old in the middle of
the craze for British rock acts.
She knew all about the Bea-
tles and the Stones. Now she
was going to go to the actual
schools where, perhaps, one
Sday she herself might enroll.
We picked up Holly-Dolly
who was around 16 years old.
She was a small size girl, very
cute and athletic. She was


animated. Very talkative like
Jerry. This was going to be
fun. We had a car and drove
through downtown tour. What
a thrill for Tina to see the
names on sightposts in Lon-
don. Strawberry Fields, what
a kick!
We came upon the huge
building for the various col-
leges.
Tina said, "Look Holly,
.there is your school. The Roy-
al Academy for Ballet. Can we
get in and see the girls danc-
ing inside?"
One look at Holly's face and
I knew we had stepped on a
Lisker-mine. Holly blushed.
"Actually I'm not enrolled in
the ballet school. I'm in RADA.
Drama."
A distinct lack of enthusi-
asm to cruise by the drama
school took us to see where
she lived. Lisker had told
us she stayed at the RADA
dorms, where she should re-
side. "Well, right now I'm ac-
tually staying with a British
family. I'll take you there,
then well go to a famous Brit-
ish pub for lunch." British
pub sounded good.
Her digs were meager. One
large room upstairs where
a rock band all slept in one
room. The band consisted of
four rock boy musicians and
the singer, Holly. And she
slept with the four musicians.
Yikes! Luisita looked stricken
as Tina jumped up and down
in excitement. Oh boy! Spend
a night with four rock 'n roll-
ers and Holly. Wowl After a
bitter battle which she lost,
Tina came back to our hotel,
her little lips out in a pout.
Why couldn't she stay with
Holly and four rock musi-
cians? She wanted to know.
She never found out, and
Mom would only say, Holly
would probably be dead by
20, which wasn't enough to
shut up Tina.
Of course Holly didn't re-
side in RADA dorms. She was
not enrolled'in RADA. She was
the girl singer in a girl band. I
decided not to puncture the
Liskerland version of what
she was doing in England.
And I lost track of sweet little
Holly-Dolly. She didn't die.

Michael R. Rocha

Eminent Domain Committee
Bricklemyer Smolker & Bolves, P.A., an-
nounced recently that Michael R. Rocha, an
associate in the firm's Tampa office, has been
appointed to the Florida Bar's Eminent Domain
Committee by incoming Florida Bar President

expires on June 30. We hear Mr.
Austin won't seek reappointment.
He served three terms; that's lon-
ger than anyone previously.

The Democrats have had it with
Democratic State Representative
Daphne Campbell. She is siding
with Republicans on many is-
sues, is being used by that party
to claim bipartisanship. She has
turned on Democratic Party lead-
ers and has even asked for police
protection, saying the Dems are
threatening her. The Democrats
have offered her a registration
card to change parties on several
occasions, hoping she'll leave and
join the Republicans.

Mark Huey, economic and ur-
ban development administrator at
the City of Tampa has found a new
job in Sarasota doing roughly the
same thing. He'll be the president
and chief executive of the Eco-
nomic Development Corporation
of Sarasota County. His first day
will be June 27.

Congress will hear a report
this week to create and build the
Smithsonian American Latino
Museum on the National Mall.
Considering Latin heritage
dates to the earliest days of Eu-
ropean settlement of what is now
America, we say it's about time.
Historical Latino influence over
states like Florida, Alabama,
Mississippi, Louisiana, Texas,
Arizona, New Mexico, California,
Nevada, Utah and Colorado are
overlooked and forgotten by the
focus on the U.S.'s relationship
to Britain and France. The old-
est U.S. city is St. Augustine; al-
though it could be argued that it's
San Juan, Puerto Rico and num-
ber two is Santa Fe, New Mexico.
Jamestown colony wasn't
founded until 40 years after St.
Augustine.
We hope Latin-American heri-
tage and history will triumph over
the current petty anti-immigrant,
anti-Hispanic culture in Congress.

Tampa Fire Marshal Russell
Spicola will soon start a crowd-
manager safety program- wfr tho
who work at places of assembly
such as night clubs, event centers,
restaurants and lounges. The four-
hour class will teach best practices
in preparing a facility for a crowd,
keeping count of occupancy and
crowd dispersion. In the future,
places of assembly will need one
employee on duty who has taken
the course for the first 50 custom-
ers, a second trained employee for
the next 250, a third for the next
250 and so on.
The free training program is
not mandatory but is strongly
encouraged for public safety by
the very persuasive fire marshal's
department.

The former Secretary of the
Department of Children and
Families (DCF) of Florida, George
Sheldon, is being honored for his
exceptional handling of his former
agency. It's well known by every-
one except Governor Scott that
Sheldon and his predecessor, Bob
Butterworth, led the DCF from
being Florida's most problematic
agency to one of its most admired
and copied nationwide.


He recently won the 2011 Law-
ton Chiles Advocacy Award for his
dedication to helping children and
the Betsey R. Rosenbaum Award
at the National Association of Pub-
lic Welfare Administrators' spring
forum in Washington, D.C.
Governor Scott has missed the
boat on many personnel decisions.
Scott never got to the dock when
he allowed George Sheldon to
leave DCF in the name of regime
change.

We hear the cost to just install
the untitled George Sugarman
sculpture in the roundabout on
Channelside Drive is $80,000, of
which $35,000 has been donated
by American Capital Partners and
$45,000 will come from property
taxes in the Channelside area. The
art was located at the northwest
corner of Kennedy Boulevard and
Ashley Drive at the Sykes Building.

Congresswoman Debbie Was-
serman Schultz was elected
Wednesday as the chairwoman of
the Democratic National Commit-
tee. It's a quality pick for Presi-
dent Barack Obama. She comes
from Democratic money-rich south
Florida, which will help since her
main job is raising more money.
Having a young, 44-year-old
working mother of three children
as the head of the Democratic
Party is valuable in appealing to
the party's main demographic.
Her experience in south Florida
with Blacks, Hispanics and Jews
(she's Jewish herself) will give her
great insight. Her appointment as
the first Floridian to lead the party
won't hurt the Sunshine State and
its Democrats.

Fired County Administrator
Pat Bean will likely win her fight
for a full severance pay. The com-
mission fired her for taking a
one-percent pay raise without its
permission, but an investigation
showed while that might have
been improper and unwise, it was
not illegal. Her contract, at the
fault of the county commissioners
who approved it, set a standard
of cause for dismissal at the high
level of illegal activity. Bean asked
for tha opinion of County A++trney
Renee Lee on the raise and got a
green light from her.
Ms. Lee, who also got the un-
approved raise, is still with the
county, which to us makes it even
more evident that Bean was fired
without cause since both commit-
ted the same violation- but only
one was fired.
The reimbursement was ap-
proved. The county commission
has a policy of reimbursing its
members and employees for fees in
defending themselves for actions
as part of county business
Bean was found to be innocent.
No matter how much it stings, the
commission should pay up before
the bill gets higher.

On the subject of boards that
sign bad employment contracts, it
seems no one on the Hillsborough
Area Regional Transit Authority
(HART) Board demanded that
the full employment contract for
Former Executive Director David
Armijo be attached to its board
packet nor read it in full before
the meeting to approve it. The
contract was a whopping seven


pages, yet several on the board
expressed that the attorney and
Mr. Armijo failed to give them a
good summary of the changes to
the contract. Boards should read
entire documents. That's why
they are there. If you only read
changes, you're hoping the parts
that haven't changed are good.
That's how Pat Bean got a contract
that will cost the taxpayers over
half a million dollars to terminate.
Some HART board members
told the press they need to make
policy changes to stop these mis-
takes from happening in the fu-
ture. Does the board have a policy
to NOT read? If so, let's get that
one changed.
Many on the board seemed
to fire Mr. Armijo because they
thought he manipulated the con-
tract behind their backs. The
evidence doesn't support that,
according to the board's lawyer,
Mary Ann Stiles. Some changes
were monetarily detrimental to
Mr. Armijo. It doesn't seem that he
would manipulate the process to
hurt himself financially, so some-
one else is obviously the culprit.
Mr. Armijo was the victim
of a witch hunt. His reputation
destroyed by rumor, innuendo
and unscrutinized evidence. He
was finished off by Chair Alison
Hewitt's last-minute exposure of
the contract's irregularities. If
bad management was his crime,
then the board should thin its own
ranks for the same violation.

Andrea White, senior manager
of public affairs at Bright House
Networks, will be installed as
the Ybor City Chamber of Com-
merce President at a luncheon on
Tuesday, May 10 starting at 11:45

Mayor Bob Buckhorn will preside

Congratulations to Cheryle
"Lexi" Alexander McBride on hav-

Forest University. The ceremony
is on May 16. She is the daughter
of our friends Bill McBride and
Alex Sink.

The killing of Osama bin Laden
10 years after his biggest crime
against this country is satisfying
in that justice has been done, but
should it be celebrated?
Terrorism is not defeated. In
fact, the last 10 years has done
much to demonstrate that we can't
really wage war on terrorism.


i IsATWRDAY NlIG 1 yI' b

There are no front lines. There is
no army to defeat, no capital to
capture, no flag to pull down. We
are in a prolonged police action.
Our struggle against terrorism
will take vigilance, patience and
resolve. This is just another mile-
stone, a momentary victory in that
struggle.
This does close a chapter in
9/11 events, and that should bring
relief to those in our military who
have focused on finding bin Laden.
It shows American resolve to deal
with our enemies, no matter the
cost. It might also bring a sense
of justice to victims of his terror-
ist acts.
We read a quote by a local fellow
who said, "I still remember being
in New York City and watching
people (overseas) dancing in the
streets about the destruction of
our towers. I guess this is pay-
back, but I don't think we should
be celebrating that way. We're not
like them."
This man's right. America isn't
like them. We don't drag bodies
through the streets. We don't cut
off heads and put them on pikes.
We don't show videos of executions.
We don't show off photos of our
trophies. We are better than that.

As last Saturday's White
House Correspondents' Asso-
ciation Dinner again remind-
ed us, there's always a place
because there's always a
need for comic therapy. Too
much is always going wrong
in the world, and the crucible
chroniclers and enablers need
the diversion. As do consum-
ers.
The annual event now an
overly long, overly celebrity-
laden, C-SPAN staple calls
for a professional comedian.
Some are safely lame, as
was the case last year with
Jay Leno. Even worked in
an Obama mother-in-law
joke. Some are a bit too per-
sonally edgy; think Wanda
Sykes. And some are flat-out
disrespectful; recall Stephen
Colbert hammering President
George W. Bush. Not that
GWB wasn't hammer-able. Of
course he was. But the office
of the presidency, if not its oc-
cupant, deserved more than
an onslaught of wince-able
material.
The trick is to be funny
and relevant without sound-
ing like an extension of the
cheap-shot, uncivil public
discourse that all of us are all
too familiar with.
So, nice work Seth Meyers,
of Saturday Night Live fame,
and nice work, President
Barack Obama, of world's
toughest job fame.
Meyers took potshots with-
out being off-putting or offen-
sive. The practitioners of poli-
tics and the media from Fox
News to NPR to SNL's NBC -
were prime targets. To wit:
Donald Trump: "Mr.
Trump runs the Miss USA
Beauty Pageant, which is
great for Republicans because
itll streamline their search for
a V.P."
The obvious physical toll


the presidency has taken on
Barack Obama: "...Has gone
from looking like the guy in
the Old Spice commercial to
Louis Gossett Sr."
Jon Hamm, who plays a
handsome, advertising-exec
hunk in "Mad Men": "Looks
like what every Republican
thinks they look like.
Chris Matthews, the high-
decibel, interruption-prone
host of MSNBC's Hardball:
"Sounds like an auctioneer in
a wind tunnel."
Juan Williams, the black
journalist known to have con-
troversial misgivings about
Muslim airline passengers:
"The least likely man to get a
cab in New York."
As for the president, "My
fellow Americans" has never
been a laugh line before. Nor
an appropriate segue into
commentary on the depths of
America's polarizing politics.
Before he moved on to the
release of his "official birth
video," that looked not unlike
Lion King clips, the president
acknowledged the obvious.
"No one is prouder to put
this birth certificate matter
to rest than The Donald," he
quipped.
Everyone laughed, save a
certain petulant harlequin.
The target appeared per-
turbed, if not constipated.
Even feigning graciousness
must be a character flaw.
Obama later pointed out
that Trump manifested nigh
on to presidential acumen on
a recent Celebrity Apprentice
episode by "firing" actor Gary
Busey instead of singer Meat
Loaf. "These are the types of
decisions that would keep me
up at night," noted the presi-
dent. "Well-handled, sir."
At the end of the night,
those on-hold crucibles had
resumed and Obama went


back to monitoring Osama bin
Laden.
Laughs had been provided
at the usual suspects' ex-
pense. As for Meyers, he was
humorous without embar-
rassing any but the terminally
thin-skinned. As for Obama,
he ironically reminded viewers
that he appears more comfort-
able with a witty than a bully
pulpit. And as for Trump, he
remained a running joke.
No Veepstakes for Rubio
Not that we needed remind-
ing, but Sen. Marco Rubio has
again indicated that when he
comes to town next year for
the GOP convention, it won't
be as part of a presidential
ticket. He has again reiterated
that, tea party buzz notwith-
standing, he doesn't want to
be vice president. But once
again he passed on a more
candid rationale. For the re-
cord, he did not say:
"Look, I've been a senator
for all of a few months now
and this is all, to be sure, very
flattering, but I'm not, frank-
ly, qualified. Being on a ticket
should mean more than add-
ing, say, demographic attrac-
tiveness and glibness to die
for. It should mean that you're
fully capable of being next in
line to succeed the president.
"That's way beyond my pay
grade right now. So, no, I'm
not the man for that job. Hell,
Dan Quayle was better pre-
pared. But in the event, God
forbid, that fate would inter-
vene and something were to
happen, then someone better
qualified will be in position
to succeed President Bach-
mann."
No Rail Rival
It's official. Enough is
enough. The Hillsborough
Area Rapid Transit board vot-
ed this week to phase out the
planning of light rail routes

and stick to the business of
buses. Can't blame HART in
light of regional voters' reluc-
tance to pay for rail. The de-
cision was smart. But it still
smarts.
Literary Context
Chances are the names of
Dick Greco and the late Pope
John Paul II will not often if
ever again share the same
sentence. But after witness-
ing Greco's final mayoral
run and seeing the beatifica-
tion ceremony of John Paul,
I'm reminded of two literary
works worth consulting for
relevant context on the afore-
mentioned. Plus, they're just
memorably great reads.
Edwin O'Connor's The Last
Hurrah should have been
must-reading for Greco and
his advisers. Obviously it
wasn't. An iconic, undefeat-
ed politician and a genuinely
good guy who had done good
things for his home town go-
ing to the well one last time
- although the times had in-
evitably changed. This time it
was going to be generational.
And societal. And recessional.
But it was still eminently win-
nable.
As to the Pope's road to
canonization, there is an in-
triguing process at work, even
if it's being fast tracked. It in-
volves, in effect, the vetting of
a would-be saint. It involves
playing the devil's advocate.
Scrutinizing an esteemed life
for signs of un-saintliness.
For God's gauntlet, the bar
should be heavenly high.
So the perfect complemen-
tary read: None other than
The Devil's Advocate by Mor-
ris L. West. No, Karol Jozef
Wojtyla wasn't foreshadowed
by the fictional beatification
of Giacomo Nerone. But he
could have been.
Haridopolos Update
What a difference nine
months makes. For Florida
Senate President (and U.S.
Senate GOP candidate) Mike
Haridopolos, it's the gestation
period for a viable, Republi-
can-primary, oil-drilling posi-
tion.
Last summer, in the after-
math of the BP oil spill, Hari-
dopolos was telling fellow Flo-
ridians that it was time for the
Sunshine state to "turn the
page" away from Gulf drilling.
Of course it was. It's no secret
that America can't drill its way
to energy independence, espe-
cially in the Gulf of Mexico.
The risk-reward ratio, includ-
ing jobs, is an unimpressive
non-starter. Even a number
of Republicans had no choice
but to agree with Haridopolos'
page-turning epiphany.
But that was then and this
is clearly not. Gas prices have
been spiking. So has Harido-
polos' energy rhetoric.
"We have to start drill-
ing, we need to become more
self-dependent," he said in a
recent interview. "We need to
open up those new opportu-
nities in the Gulf and ANWR
(Arctic National Wildlife Ref-
uge). ... America needs to lead
by example."
Apparently the example of
200 million gallons of oil in
the Gulf of Mexico is no longer

Royal Universe
As diversions go, the recent
royal wedding of Prince Wil-
liam and Kate Middleton was
pleasant enough. Two seem-
ingly nice, bright young peo-
ple were married amid monar-
chial pomp, circumstance and
weird hats. "Upstairs, Down-
stairs" on 'roids.
But what we were truly
witnessing was more than
quaint, time-warp spectacle.
It was also a look inside a
truly parallel universe. Where
else could someone be born
to parents who became rich,
live on a lush estate, attend
the priciest, most prestigious
schools and be a "common-
er"?

The saying goes: If it sounds
too good to be true, it prob-
ably is. In the business world,
this translates to, "There's no
such thing as a free lunch."
As adults, we are leery of any-
thing free, but the child in us
gets excited at the dream of
getting something for noth-
ing. It is that aspect that has
allowed a very dirty, but very
profitable industry to prosper;
the industry of advance-fee
fraud.
I, and most other people I
imagine, first came into con-
tact with this unscrupulous
industry with the advent of
the internet and email. It
came in the form of a letter of
distress, now known as a Ni-
gerian Scam e-mail. The mes-
sage usually comes from some
supposed dignitary in an em-
bassy abroad and this person
has access to some ungodly
sum of money that has be-
come available because of a
deposed leader or an unstable
government. All the sender
wants is to be able to transfer
millions of dollars into your
bank account and youll be
able to keep a very handsome
amount of money for your
self. Of course they'll need
your bank account number
to perform the transaction,
or better yet, have you set up
an account off shore that they
can access and all the glory
will be yours.
They say a fool and his
money are soon parted. These
Nigerian schemes also prove
that there's a sucker born ev-
ery minute. Knowing this, we
try to educate as many people
as we can about the nature of
the beast and that no one is
looking to give away money. In
Tampa there is still an ongo-
ing scam where scam artists
approach elderly Spanish-
speaking people in parking
lots to bilk them out of their


money. They pretend to have
a winning lottery ticket but do
not have the means to cash
it for fear of being deported
for being illegal immigrants.
They trick these sympathetic
souls into giving them money
for these bogus lottery tickets
which at the displeasure of
the mark, cannot be cashed.
But what about those who
aren't fools?
I know a woman who is
quite careful with her money,
but she has a little bit of an
adventurous spirit when it
comes to games of chance.
Shell play the lottery every
once in a while and will throw
her hat in the ring for the
Publisher's Clearing House
Sweepstakes. She operates
under the thought that there
are plenty of scam artists out
there, but as long as she is
careful, she won't get ripped
off. So one day, she receives
a letter from a sweepstakes
clearing house that she won
about a half million dollars.
Not too bad a score, but she
wasn't entirely sure about the
fact she actually won because
the letter read that a repre-
sentative would be coming by
to deliver the money but she
needed to call the company
with a series of numbers they
supplied to verify her winning
entry. I immediately thought
it to be a scam, but the letter
was on Publisher's Clearing
House letterhead and on the
surface the letter looked le-
gitimate. I called the number
listed to get more information
for my newly rich friend. The
person on the line seemed to
be of Indian decent and asked
me a series of questions re-
garding the letter and then
informed me that a spokes-
person would be coming by
with a check. I said great, but
then she informed me of the
formality of insurance. They


would need her to wire them
$450 for insurance before
they could release the check.
Of course this was a ridicu-
lous premise and we declined,
which led to them not deliv-
ering the half-million dollars.
We felt good about exposing
this scam, but we made a
grave mistake along the way.
We made the phone call. By
just humoring them and mak-
ing the call seemed to put
her on a list created purely
for people who have the pos-
sibility of getting duped. She
now receives mountains full
of mail with notifications of
winnings from sweepstakes,
lotteries and contests. All of
them tell her she's a winner
and all of them have a catch:
they need money first.
A clever new scam she's
been invited to involves the
company informing her she
has won over six million dol-
lars. In this letter they send
her a check for $2,500. This
check is to cover the $2,000
insurance and $500 is for
her to keep. What they want
her to do is take the check
to her bank and deposit it,
then call the company for
further instructions. On the
phone, they instruct her to
withdraw $2,000 of $2,500
check and wire the money to
them so that they may release
the check. Another scam of
course, but the check is actu-
ally a perfect counterfeit. It's
drawn from a real company's
bank account and is printed
on watermarked checks. The
tell tale sign that this was a
scam was that the company's
name on the check was not
the same as the prize issuing
company. They took a legiti-
mate company's checks and
duplicated them fraudulently.
Its simplicity is brilliant, but
it's getting bolder and bolder.
So the natural question is,

in the mean time, education is

to remember is that no one

"taxes" or "shipping and han-
dling charges" to collect your
prize.
Hold on to your money.
Scammers pressure people to
wire money through commer-
cial money transfer companies
like Western Union because
wiring money is the same as
sending cash. If you discover
you've been scammed, the
money's gone, and there's
very little chance of recovery.
Likewise, resist any push to
send a check or money order
by overnight delivery or- cou-
rier. Con artists recommend
these services so they can get
to your money before you real-
ize you've been cheated.
Look-alikes aren't the real
thing. It's illegal for any pro-
moter to lie about an affiliation
with or an endorsement by
- a government agency or any
other well-known organiza-
tion. Disreputable companies
sometimes use a variation of
an official or nationally recog-
nized name to try to confuse
you and give you confidence
in their offers. Insurance com-
panies, including Lloyd's, do
not insure delivery of sweep-
stakes winnings.
Phone numbers can de-
ceive. Some con artists use
Internet technology to call
you. It allows them to disguise
their area code: although it
may look like they're call-
ing from Washington, DC or
your local area, they could be
calling from anywhere in the
world.

Amy's 21/-year-old daugh-
ter is not losing her baby sta-
tus without a fight.
She has been the baby of
the family for her entire exis-
tence. But, when Benjamin is
born, there will be a new baby
in the family. The reality of the
situation has just recently hit
her and she is fighting to keep
the "baby" title.
Over the past few weeks,
her once rapidly expanding
vocabulary has been short-
ened to one simple phrase,
"I'm mama's baby" She is
not asking if she is "mama's
baby," she is reminding us in
no uncertain terms that she is
"mama's baby."
She has been asking for her
sippy cup with a bottle-like
nipple more than ever before,
calling it her "baba," the baby
name she used to have for her
bottle. She demands that she
wears the one-piece pajamas
in which she used to sleep
when she was a baby. The pa-
jamas are a size too small and
look ready to explode when
she is squeezed into them,
but she is willing to deal with
the discomfort to make her
point she is "mama's babyl"
She has even begun confiscat-
ing any baby toy in the house.
She walks around with multi-
ple baby toys in hand, repeat-
ing over and over again, "I'm
mama's baby!"
Amy and my reaction to
this situation has simply been,
"Whatever." Of course she is
going to be jealous. She is only
2/2 years old, after all. She
doesn't yet possess rational
thinking skills. In her mind,
she is being replaced. She
does not realize that it is pos-
sible for her mother to have a
new baby and still love her as
much as she always has.
Amy said that it could get
worse when Ben is born. Per-
haps her daughter will de-
mand to drink from a bottle
again when she sees the baby
with bne. Perhaps she will re-
gress to a diaper. Perhaps her
vocabulary will continue to re-
gress and she will begin talk-
ing like a baby. Whatever ...
It is not worth butting heads
with a 21/2-year old over some-
thing so silly. If she wants to
act like a baby again, so be
it. If it makes her happy and
secure, so be it. It is not like
she will be plotting some dia-
bolical plan to assassinate the
baby and take his spot. She
just wants to act like a baby
again.
No matter if or how she re-
gresses, Amy is pretty sure it
will be very temporary. Her
daughter is freakishly smart
for her age. Not only was she
potty trained at two, she can
also already dress herself,
brush her own teeth, wipe
herself and use eating uten-

sils without making a mess.
When she is near other two-
year-olds, she is always the
most mature. Other parents
always comment that she
seems more like a three- or
four-year-old than a two-
year-old. So, Amy said that
her daughter will surely feel
ridiculous about acting like a
baby after a few weeks. She
said her daughter will realize
that she is in fact a "big girl."
Big girl ... what an odd
phrase to attach to Amy's
daughter. I have only known
her for one year, yet she has
grown so much in that time.
When I first met her, she was
still in diapers 24/7, she ate
with her hands in a baby
chair, she was sleeping in
a crib and she cried when-
ever she did not get her way
... OK, well, one thing hasn't
changed. When I first met
her, the only phrase she ever
muttered to me was, "My big
toe hurts." She often scraped
her toe on the steps of Amy's
pool and she knew that when
she told me her big toe hurt
I would shower her with at-
tention. Now, she sometimes
sits next to me and mumbles
on and on for minutes. About
what, I sometimes have no
idea, but she is talking full-
time nonetheless.
The changes in Amy's
daughter have been outstand-
ing and I am proud that I have
witnessed a few of her firsts.
I missed her first words and
first steps; Amy and I had
not yet met. But, I did wit-
ness the first time she used
a toilet. Amy had one of those
plastic potty training toi-
lets in her living room. She
stripped off her daughter's
clothes and, as she did every
day, asked her daughter if she
wanted to "go pee pee in the
potty." And, as her daughter
did every day, she stared at
the toilet as though it would
bite her butt off if she got to
close. So I cheered her on ... I
started chanting, "Pee pee in
the potty, pee pee in the pot-
ty, pee pee in the potty." Mo-
ments later, Amy's son joined
in. We were both enthusiasti-
cally chanting, "Pee pee in the

potty!" The excitement of the
moment got to her and min-
utes (yes, we chanted that for
minutes) later she sat on the
toilet and she pee'dl It was ex-
citingl That night I met some
friends at the bar and bragged
about the moment. They
looked at me like I had three
heads. What the hell did they
care about a little girl peeing
in a toilet? Regardless, I was
excited.
I was also there the first
time she went to ballet. When-
ever Amy's son is ready to go
to tee-ball, we have a ritual of
high giving and yelling, "Base-
balll" Before Amy's daughter
left for her first day of ballet,
she ran up to me, grabbed my
hand, high fived it and yelled,
"Ballet!" It was one of the cut-
est and funniest moments of
my life.
Then, this past Monday,
we dropped Amy's daughter
off for her first day of school.
It was hard. We were expect-
ing her to cry and run to Amy
and beg her not to leave her.
We were expecting her to bang
on the window as we walked
away and cry for her mother
to come back. We were expect-
ing the school to call us that
morning, telling us that she
has not stopped crying since
we left ... none of that hap-
pened. We dropped her off,
she sat down next to another
girl and began to play, and we
left. No tears. None. She was
a big girl about it. For some
strange reason, I had a hard
time accepting that she didn't
cry when we left. When I first
met her, she would shed "end
of the world" tears whenever
her mother left her alone for
a few seconds. Now, she was
being left for the day and was
perfectly fine with it.
When the baby is born,
we expect Amy's daughter to
have a problem with accepting
the fact that she is no longer
the baby. What I did not ex-
pect is that I am having a hard
time accepting the fact that
Amy's daughter is no longer
a baby. Last year when I met
her she WAS a baby. Now, she
is growing up.
This is weird.

by Vera Garcia
Many of the families who
settled in West Tampa dur-
ing the early 1900s through
World War II, whether in pri-
vately owned homes or rental
properties, planted vegetable
gardens to augment their
ability to have fresh produce
for meals in order to have ra-
tioned foodstuffs stretch fur-
ther.
Due to the large number
of major nations involved in
World War I, imported food-
stuffs were out of the realm of
possibility.
Because of rationing and
the lack of fuel for trans-
port, the National War Gar-
den Commission launched a
war garden campaign across
America. The Liberty Gardens
of World War I would later
become Victory Gardens dur-
ing World War II, touted as
vitamin factories. It was es-
timated that 18 million acres
of grass lawns in the United
States could be converted to
garden space.
In West Tampa, immigrants

Before vegetable seeds or

the plantings.

Because some people had

Recipes brought from the

did not need to change dras-
tically, although some days
were declared meatless or
wheatless days. Plants had
different growing seasons, so
upkeep of the gardens went
on all year long.
One of the chores children
had was to water the vegeta-
ble garden and pull the weeds
that threatened the plantings.
Another important job was
spreading dried tobacco leaf
stems over the lawn and be-
tween the rows of plantings in
the garden for insect control.
Whether or not this method
worked remains unproven.
Sometimes communities

Community Gardens: Carrying

the Spirit of Victory Gardens


V is for Victory


Like their victory garden an-
cestors, community gardens
have been sprouting in com-
munities around Tampa Bay.
Typically composed of veg-
etables, flowers, trees or a
mixture of all three, commu-
nity gardens allow neighbor-
hoods to produce some of their
own food, allowing commu-
nity members to save money
and to have access to healthy,
pesticide-free crops such as to-
matoes, watermelon, and other
vegetables.
The land is typically rented
or donated and is maintained
by the community members
themselves, usually with one
person designated as the pri-
mary coordinator. Neighbor-
-hoods may also trade crops
with other nearby communi-
ties.
The Seminole Heights Com-
munity Garden, located at the
Seminole Heights Community
Garden on Violet Street, pro-


duces extra fruits and veg-
etables which are then often
donated to charities such as
Metropolitan Ministries.
"Our purpose really is to
show people how to grow food,"
Robin Milcowitz, one of the
founders of the garden, told the
Tampa Tribune.
The American Community
Gardening Association (ACGA)
believes that community gar-
dening will improve quality of
life by "providing a catalyst for
neighborhood and community
development, stimulating so-
cial -interaction, encouraging
self-reliance, beautifying neigh-
borhoods, producing nutritious
food, reducing family food bud-
gets, conserving resources and
creating opportunities for rec-
reation, exercise, therapy and
education."

munity gardens, visit the

The Foundation of West Tampa


By Adam Jahr
In a community such as
West Tampa, there are people
on whom the community has
been built. They are the bed-
rock on which our foundation
has been set. Without these
men and women of irreproaca-
ble character, unquestionable
loyalty and sense of honor,
our communities cannot stand.
So every year we devote space
to introduce you to a few. Let
us introduce you to three more.
******
Sam Salemi, Sr.
Most people probably were
not too happy when they first
met Sam Salemi, Sr. Not be-
cause he's not a nice guy,
but because a visit to Mr; Sa-
lemi meant your vehicle was
banged up.
Salemi, Sr., founder of
Salemi's Body Shop, estab-
lished a reputation in West
Tampa as the go-to man for
body work. After a rich child-
hood playing baseball at Mac-
Farlane and Cuscaden Park,
where he holds the title for
most runs batted in, Salemi
Sr. became an apprentice to
his uncle, who taught him the
trade of body work until he
was drafted by the U.S. Army
/ i T


Sam Salemi
during WWII
during WWII. He was sent to
Camp Landing, Florida, for
basic training then spent his
19 months serving in Florida
and Alabama as an infantry
instructor.
"I was lucky I didn't have
to go overseas," he says, then
jokes, "My training: that's why
the war ended so quick."
While serving in the U.S.
Army, Salemi Sr. hitchhiked
back to Tampa all the time to
visit Grace "Dolly" Saladino,
whom he ended up marrying.
They've now been married for
66 years and have three chil-
dren, six grandchildren, seven
great-grandchildren and an
eighth on its way.
Some of his children and
grandchildren currently run
Salemi's Body Shop. "I just
come in, sit around 'til about
nine, nine-thirty, then go play
my dominoes," says Salemi,
Sr. who is "retired" but stops
by the shop every day to keep

from spinning his wheels. "If I
didn't come to work every day,
what would I do?" he asks.
"Stay home?"
He's proud that he was able
to establish Salemi's Body
Shop in 1966 after 30 years of
working at Ferman Auto. "To
know your family will be well
provided for is the greatest ac-
complishment a man can brag
about." To this day, the busi-
ness relies on the reputation
for good, honest work that he
founded.
"Be honest with people," he
says, "that's the main thing.
You say one lie, you gotta tell
two lies to cover the first one
and before you know it, you're
the biggest liar in town. You
get more out of people by be-
ing nice than being a horse's
ass.
"We do beautiful work," he
continues. "We get cars that
was fixed some other place. I
really don't know how they got
by with it. They leave screws
off ... it's unreal."
After Salemi, Sr. finishes
his rounds of dominoes to
keep his mind alert, he makes
his way back home to spend
time with his wife. Sam and
SGrace, both 84, watch Grace's
television programs together,
and Sam cares for her even
catering to her late-night re-
quests. "She's always telling
me, 'Baby, can you get me

Busto along.
"Today they'd call it child
labor," says Busto, laughing.
"Frankly, I hated plumbing."
But when he finished serv-
ing in the U.S. Coast Guard,
visiting locations such as
Bermuda, Busto needed to
choose a career path.
While he initially wanted to
go into banking or somewhere
he could wear a tie and dress
up, he figured since he was
familiar with plumbing, he'd
take that route. He worked
with other established plumb-
ers in the area, gaining expe-
rience and making contacts,
before becoming licensed and
starting Busto Plumbing in
1969.
Since then, he has done
large projects such as the Am-
South Building in downtown
Tampa, the St. Pete Time's
Forum (the Ice Palace, at the
time) and the Progress Energy
Florida Office Building in St.
Petersburg.

Busto's father, who grew
up during the Great Depres-
sion, was hesitant when
Busto built his own business
off St. Louis Street in West
Tampa, fearing his son might
meet financial trouble and be
in debt. But Busto would ask
him, "How do you expect to

its willingness to do service

toilets. A lot of plumbers don't
like to get dirty."
Throughout his years pre-
siding over the business,
Busto has mentored former
employees who have gone on
to start successful plumbing
companies in the area such
as Dyser Plumbing, Always
Plumbing and Buccaneer
Plumbing. Many of the indus-
try leaders Busto took under
his wing have since thanked
him for his guidance because
without Busto, they wouldn't
be where they are today.
"I always tried to express
the importance of quality and
taking pride in what they do
because today most people
don't care about pride and
quality of work," says Busto.
"They're just in there to get in
and get out and get paid as
much as they can for doing as
little as possible."
Busto is the exact oppo-
site. "If I screwed up or made
a mistake, I'd go back there
and fix it on my own time and
I'd be embarrassed for any-
body to know about it. Guys
today, you send them out
there, they expect to get paid
for their own screw-up. I've
always tried to be more than
fair. Sometimes it's hurt me,
but you can't just give up on
people in general because one
person left a bad taste."
Even outside of his busi-
ness life, Busto has served
as a mentor. At one point, a
young man used to come to
Busto's-house who had never
seen his father; his parents
were divorced.
"You could tell he was lone-
ly for his dad," says Busto,
who served as a father-figure
and even called the boy's dad.
"You don't know me," he said
to him. "Your son is a great
kid and I just want to let you
know he really thinks a lot of
you, and it would be nice if
you could at least call him or
go and see him."
The situation didn't heal


right away but years later
when Busto arrived on the
property of a spec home for
a job, he met the landscaper.
"Turns out it's this kid! The
guy has done phenomenal."
As for his own family, Bus-
to has one biological son, Ja-
son, who is currently Busto
Plumbing's COO.

Jason has two biologi-
cal siblings, Mark and Te-
resa, from his mother's pre-
vious relationship. Mark's
son works at the front desk.
Jason's mother passed away
from cancer and Busto has
been married to his current
wife, Kelly, since 1992. He
and Kelly have one daughter,
Gigi, a four-year-old German
shepherd with eyes like Greta
Garbo's, hence her namesake.
After undergoing a quadru-
ple bypass, Busto, 70, says
he has a new outlook on life.
"The other day I was driving
to work, I had a lot of stress
I was under," he says. "I'm
thinking 'I don't know why I
let any of this worry me. Hell,
I could be gone right now."'
Busto is learning to live for
the present moment like Gigi
does, riding in the backseat of
her father's truck on the way
to work every day, smiling
her doggy smile as neighbors
wave to her on the streets of
West Tampa.

Waters Center, then Hills-
borough County High School,
was the first grades 9-12 high
school built in Hillsborough
County opening on October
12, 1911. The Tampa Heights
building is a three-story red
brick building set upon a
raised basement. Originally
designed by William Potter,
an addition was done in 1920
by noted Tampa architect M.
Leo Elliott, who laid one of his
signature bricks where the
addition meets the original. A
closed rectangle with an open
center that has been partially
filled, the structure occupies
an entire city block.
The building is highly sig-
nificant as an early twentieth
century example of a pur-
posefully constructed urban
high school, demonstrating
ordered assemblage of spaces
in an educational facility, ac-
cording to the Waters Career
Center's website.
With an ever-growing pop-
ulation, the building was ac-
tually the third home of Hill-
sborough County High and
by 1928, Hillsborough High
found its fourth home on
Central Avenue in Seminole
Heights. The building wouldn't
stay empty for too long. By
1939 its next significant oc-
cupant would be Thomas Jef-
ferson High School. Jefferson
High's first class graduated
in 1942 and its first principal
was none other than its cur-
rent namesake, D.W. Waters.

of many names it would be known as over its 100 years.


during this time, and Jeffer-
son High mostly served Hills-
borough County's Latin popu-
lation. Notable alumni include
La Gaceta columnist, noted
artist and larger-than-life per-
sonality Dr. Ferdie Pacheco,
Chicago Bear great Rick Casa-
res, former Tampa Mayor and
Florida Governor Bob Marti-
nez and Major League Base-
ball manager and player, Tony
La Russa.
By 1967 the school board
deemed the school obsolete.
However, with the new con-
struction of 1-275, George
Washington Junior High
needed a new home. The
original ramp from I-4 barely
cleared the building, leaving


the location terribly undesir-
able and George Washington
Junior High was relocated
to the newly vacated Jeffer-
son High the following year
in 1968. George Washington
Junior High would remain at
that site until its closure in
1979.
Benefitting from a beautiful
restoration, 2704 North high-
land Ave. is now the home of
the D.W. Waters Career Cen-
ter. The building earned an

La Teresita has become
somewhat of an institution.
Starting with a grocery store in
1972, the family business has
evolved over the years, adding
, .


restaurants, a banquet hall,
catering and, most recently, a
bakery. The Capdevilas have
made quite a mark on West
Tampa and they don't seem to
be slowing down.
"We know how to do res-
taurants, we know how to
do meat markets and gro-
ceries. We didn't know too
much about the bakery busi-
ness," says second-generation
owner, Luis Capdevila, who
received insight from bakery


pros in the area such as John
Alessi and Joe Diaz. But their
lack of knowledge didn't stop
them. "It was a hit overnight,"
says Capdevila. "Everybody


loves it."
La Teresita Bakery oc-
cupies a building that was
once a gas station before it
was purchased in 1974 and
turned into a small sandwich
shop. With a special Spanish
touch, the bakery bakes all
the bread and desserts served
at La Teresita Restaurant and
the cakes and treats used for
the company's catering wing.

taurant complements the
bakery," says Capdevila.
So far, the bakery has had
a soft opening. Once they
master the shop, they'll have
a- grand opening. Capdevila
is still learning interesting
facts about baking. He's since
learned the science behind
the baking process. "Bread is
like a sponge and it draws the
water from the atmosphere."
Therefore, the recipe has to be
altered on rainy days.
But rain or shine, thou-
sands of people visit La Tere-
sita. Now they can grab some
lunch at the restaurant then
swing by the bakery to pick up
dessert for dinner or a pastry
for breakfast the next morn-
ing. What has kept La Tere-
sita so successful for nearly
40 years is its mission to sup-
ply quality food at affordable
prices without sacrificing the
mom-and-pop attitude. Luis
Capdevila can still be seen
walking around the property,
shaking hands with custom-
ers and telling everyone jokes.
Known for its community-cen-
tric environment, the original
establishment grew famous
for the diversity of its patrons.
"The mayor would come
in and he'd sit right next to
a homeless person right off
the street," recalls Capdevila.
"People would eat and be talk-
ing to one another. It just be-
came a political hot spot."
It's no surprise that every-
one from presidents George
Bush, Bill Clinton and Barack
Obama to Al Gore and various
mayors and governors have
stopped by to dine at the res-
taurant.
"We're in the business of
serving people," says Cap-
devila. "We celebrate people's
birthdays, vwe celebrate peo-
ple's anniversaries, we mourn
when somebody loses a loved
one."
One of their regulars, an
elderly woman, would bring
her entire family to the res-
taurant every couple weeks
after church. As part of her
will, she made her family con-
tinue to meet at the restau-
rant in order to receive their
inheritance. They're still shar-
ing time together at La Tere-
sita Restaurant even after her
death.
Just as the company itself
is multi-generational, with
Luis taking over for his father,
Maximino, and his children
joining the business and help-
ing modernize the system, the
business' patrons range from
grandparents to great grand-
children.
Now, with La Teresita's
newest addition, sweet tooths
young and old can get a taste
of La Teresita Bakery.

he expanded Alessi, opening
several locations throughout
Tampa, including the busi-
ness' signature Cypress Street
location, which was acquired
in the '60s. John was a talent-
ed cake decorator, and added
the sweeter side to the busi-
ness. He even won first place
in the Florida State Fair for
a cake he decorated. Alessi's
signature princess cake is still
a best seller.
Phil Alessi took over after
John, and at 22 years old,
he truly reinvented the busi-
ness. At the time, there was
a trend where retail grocers
were building stores with bak-
ers in-house, eliminating the
need for a local neighborhood
bakery. This could've crushed
the Alessi bakeries, but Phil
figured out a way to contin-
ue to supply companies with
wholesale products by creat-
ing a manufacturing plant,
producing mass quantities of
items in a cost-efficient busi-
ness model. Currently, there
is a 100,000-square foot man-
ufacturing building in north-
west Tampa bearing the Alessi
name. This has allowed Alessi
to sell their products to gi-
ant clients all over the nation.
Publix sells their desserts
such as tiramisu. Crispers
dessert shot glasses are made
by Alessi, and so are pastries
at Embassy Suites.
With over 100 years of re-
search and development expe-
rience, Alessi essentially free-
lances their knowledge. Paula
Dean even approached them
to develop specialty cream
cheese cookies.
Phil Alessi, Jr. has since
taken over the operation,
managing the plant and the
200 employees who work
there. There's even an Alessi


Catering branch. However, the
plant hasn't taken away from
the success of the Cypress
Street location. They feed off
each other. The plant sup-
plies items and ingredients to
the bakery, which has its own
research and development de-
partment. Ralph Fernandez,
whose moniker is "The Pro-
fessor", has developed one of
the fastest-selling items at the
bakery: flan cream cake. The
bakery is currently renovating
its interior and will soon have
a large sitting area where cus-


tomers can sit down and en-
joy their morning pastry with
some espresso.
Celebrating its 99th an-
niversary this year, Alessi
Bakery has successfully built
itself from scratch into a mas-
sive four-tier business. Father
after son after son after son
have utilized the essential in-
gredients of quality products,
friendly service and passion-
ate innovation to treat their
customers like family in tradi-
tional Italian fashion.

Cigar Factories: West Tampa's Giant Story Tellers


By Kyle Dion & Adam Jahr
West Tampa is known for
many thirigs. Its little league
champions, its authentic
Spanish cuisine, its sense of
community and its historic
cigar factories are just a few
characteristics of this diverse
region. Standing along How-
ard and Armenia Avenues and
tucked away on Habana and
Albany Avenues are some of
the area's oldest story-tellers:
the monolithic cigar factories
that date back to the turn
of the century. From being
transformed into a university
or used by the Church of Sci-
entology, these archaic struc-
tures have plenty of stories to
share.
Santaella & Co.
Cigar Factory
Located at 1906 N. Arme-
nia Ave., the Santaella & Co.
Cigar Factory was established
in 1900 by Antonio Santaella
in Seville, Andalucia, Spain.
Born in 1863, Santaella's
family immigrated to Cuba in
the 1870s, where he learned
the cigar trade. After moving
to America, the company had
several locations, switching
buildings a few times due to
growth of the business before
settling at the corer of Ar-
menia Avenue and Chestnut
Street in March 1904.
That same year, the West

... i j l-


plant managers, with whom
he'd play golf. There is even
a photo of Ruth standing in
front of the Santaella factory
holding a can of Optimo ci-
gars.
Bubba Ellis, the current
owner, said there was a West
Tampa native who told him
that she rolled cigars exclu-
sively for Winston Churchill
out of the factory.
Antonio Santaella died in
1948 and his son-in-law, An-
tonio Cuevas, took over until
he died in 1952 and his wid-
ow, Winifred May, maintained
the factory. Three years later,
the Santaella Cigar Company
sold to the Universal Cigar
Corporation.
Currently, the factory is
owned by Ellis-Van Pelt Inc.,
which occupies the base-
ment and first floor, selling of-
fice furniture and restaurant
equipment. The second and
third floors are used as art-
ist studios for somewhat of an
artist colony, including paint-
ers, sculptors, photographers
and jewelry makers. There are
about 25 studios of various
sizes, which are rented out.
The West Tampa Center for
the Arts (WTCA), a non-profit
uses the factory for art open-
ings; there is a gallery on the
second floor and the hallways
are also used to display art.
WTCA also uses the studios to
give art lessons to disadvan-
taged children.


Tampa fire of 1904 ended up
destroying the factory and its
entire stock of tobacco, but it
resumed work a week later in
a different factory. Meanwhile,
Santaella bought the entire
block where his demolished
factory rested. He leveled the
area and built a new factory,
which withstood a dynamite
explosion nearby, shattering
160 of the factory windows,.
but leaving the building intact
and its workers unharmed.

***mwi--
--T1 ^:


Specializing in handmade ci-
gars, the new factory opened
in October 1904 and was the
largest cigar factory in West
Tampa until a 100-foot addi-
tion in June 1905 made it the
largest in all of Tampa, em-
ploying over 1000 workers in
West Tampa and Key West.
Supposedly, the factory
used to make Babe Ruth's fa-
vorite cigar. He would come to
Tampa Bay for the Yankees'
spring training in St. Peters-
burg and had made friends
with a few of the factory's

Ultimately, the factory has
had no exterior work done
do to it recently, just interior
construction. It still holds
some historic artifacts such
as stripping tables. Through
its affiliation with WTCA, the
factory is a unique part of
Tampa's heritage that guests
can still view, dressed up in
contemporary art.

Morgan Cigar Factory
In 1905, the Morgan Ci-
gar Company transferred its
operations from Seattle to a
small factory on the corer
of Fremont Avenue and Arch
Street. The firm quickly out-
grew this building and moved
to a new building at Howard
Avenue and St. Louis Street
just two years later. Rapid
growth continued and eventu-
ally the Morgan Cigar Compa-
ny settled in the old Berriman
Brothers building at Howard
Avenue and LaSalle Street.
Under the direction of "Col-
onel" W. T. Morgan, the fac-
tory produced famous brands
such as Juan De Fuca, Inde-
pendente, F. Lozano, Wall's
Court, and Don Sebastian.
In 1914, the company spent
$8,500 to upgrade the fac-
tory to accommodate all of its
1,000 workers.
After the death of "Colonel"
Morgan in 1952, his son, W.
T., Jr., took over as head of

place," says Romero. "Seri-
ously. They'll tell you what to
do."
But Romero understands
the banter; he says it's an His-
panic thing. Born in Cuba and
raised in Puerto before moving
to Tampa, Romero can easily
handle the verbal jabs.
"It's a lot of joking around,"
he says. "This place, anything
goes."
Most of La Oriental's em-
ployees are Cubans, and many
only speak Spanish. Romero
tends to get applications for
part-time candidates who've
just come here from Cuba
and don't yet know any Eng-
lish. While business has been
picking up after the begin-
ning-of-the-year lull, Romero
says "it's definitely down from
years before" due to the econ-
omy. "Five, ten years ago, you
open a business, you got a
gold mine. That doesn't exist
nowhere. Now you have to be


realistic."
Romero comes into La
Oriental at 4 a.m. to get the
day started. Ultimately, if the
bakery does well enough, he
plans to extend the hours and
use the ovens to cook pizzas,
which hell serve with wine.
For now, hell settle for playful
whines from his regulars.

Mauricio

Faedo's

Bakery

Mauricio Faedo, 68, grew
up in the bakery business,
delivering bread from house
to house when he was only 10
years old. His uncle, Joe Fae-
do, had a bakery on Armenia
Avenue and showed him the
ropes. But as Faedo knows
well, you can't always make
dough by making dough.


Tampa, this shop sells au-
thentic Spanish pastries such
as guava turnovers, chorizo
empanadas and desserts like
pudin de pan and panatela
borracha.
"It's a local bakery," says
Pablo Romero, co-owner of La


Though he and his sister-
in-law Miriam Romero co-
own La Oriental, you might
not know it at first based off
the behavior of the regulars
who've called this local bakery
theirs for years.
"They think they own the

Oriental. "Everybody knows
each other."
On any given day, locals
- whose average age is 70 -
come into the bakery, order
their cafe con leche, a pastry
or some toast, and spark up
some conversation.
"When it comes to poli-
tics and baseball, that's what
they talk about in here," says
Romero. "Everybody's an ex-
pert."
While sometimes a heated
argument will reach a boiling
point, most debate is in good
fun. The regulars know not
to take anything personally,
which Romero had to learn
very quickly after purchas-
ing La Oriental over two years
ago.
"I just got here, and I got
criticized two or three times,"
he says, laughing. "They're
kind of family. They [criticize]
your hair, they cut on every-
thing."
Romero, 51, had worked
over two decades as head of
an IT department at the St.
Petersburg Times, oversee-
ing 2,500 computers in the
tri-county area before retir-
ing and firing up the stove.
When he was younger, he
used to visit La Oriental with
his parents to pick up bakery

"Right now, the bakery
business is really bad," he
says. "I just hope it turns
around. People aren't com-
ing out to the streets like they
used to. They're not going to
come to the bakery just to buy
a loaf of bread."
With the decline of the
economy and the ascent of
gas prices, Faedo sees people
saving on gas and just buy-
ing their bread at the grocery
store or somewhere more con-
venient rather than making a
separate trip to his shop like
they used to. Corporate gro-
cery stores have proved to be
stiff competition for Faedo,
who remembers a time when
his grandmother owned a
dairy where St. Joseph's Hos-
pital now stands.
Faedo is a bread man. His
bakery makes everything from
Cuban bread, Italian bread,
French bread, sub rolls, Kai-

bread and some occasional
specialty breads.
"We're baking bread all the
time," he says. "I put all the
best ingredients in the bread.
I don't mess around with pre-


ing in the cigar factories,
Faedo learned early on in life
how to be a dedicated, busi-
ness-minded worker from his
uncle. "Work like hell," says
Faedo. "He was a mule."
One day, Faedo cut his
uncle's grass for him and he
asked Faedo if he wanted to

Customers come from even
further distances, such as
Crystal River, Leesburg and
Ocala, but the bakery doesn't
deliver that far.
Faedo's children want to
take over the bakery even-
tually, but they know that
in order to accomplish that,
they'll have to follow the les-
son Faedo had to learn at a
young age.
"You wanna make some-
thing of yourself?" he asks.
"Work."


Most people's work days
don't start at midnight, but
for those in the bakery indus-
try, the early bird gets the...
apple turnover. In order to get
everything ready by 7 a.m.,
when Housewife Bake Shop
& Deli opens, owner Anthony
Perrone and others on staff
have to get a fresh start bak-
ing breads and sweet treats.
Specializing in Italian favor-
ites such as cannolis, scaccia-
ta and cookies, Housewife has
been in business for over half
a century. Louis Perrone, An-
thony's father, returned from
WWII in 1944 and married
Francis Alessi, the daughter
of Nicola and Rosalia Alessi,
who founded Alessi Bakery
nearly 100 years ago. He then
ran several bakeries, includ-
ing one in Britton Plaza and
another in Northgate Shop-
ping Center, in the mid-50s
before opening Housewife at
the corner of Sligh and Arme-
nia avenues.


"I used to come in as a kid
and help out," says Anthony
Perrone, who took over the
family business in 1976 after
leaving Delta Airlines. "It was
a different atmosphere back
then. The bakers had been
around for years and years.
Now, it's hard to keep the
same bakers all the time."
Like the rest of the mom-
and-pop bakeries, they've
faced the rising competition
of corporate grocers. "It's just
a lot harder to compete," says
Perrone. "They can sell stuff a
lot cheaper than we can."
Perrone recalls when there
were only a handful of baker-
ies around such as Faedo's,
Alessi and Olympia. In order
to stay competitive, House-
wife has maintained what it
does best while branching
into different avenues. "We
still bake all of our products
from scratch," says Perrone.
However, they added "Deli"
to their name about 15 years
ago when they expanded their
menu and started making
their signature pizzas, baked
ziti, Italian sausage, pork
roast, yellow rice and chicken,
sandwiches and other classic
Italian dishes. Through their
catering department, which is
mainly run by Dana Perrone,
Anthony's wife, they sell these
dishes along with their baked
goods.
When Anthony and Dana's
daughter, Tena, joined the
company in 2003, she em-
bellished the bakery's cake
department. She's a very tal-
ented cake artist and has con-
structed custom-order cakes
in the shape of everything
from Mary Poppins, a giraffe,
a monkey and a guitar.
"I guess people see all that
stuff on TV,' says Perrone.
While they've beefed up
their menu and explored new
(Continued on page 15)


servatives." On a good day,
they'll bake 3,000 loaves -
down from 6,000 when times
were very good.
Even though business is
down, Faedo and his children,
Michelle, Melissa and Mau-
rice, work just as hard to keep
the company going. Mauricio
Faedo's Bakery is open 24
hours every day except Satur-
day, when it closes from 12 to
3 a.m.

system and a mother work-


be paid. Faedo said yes, so his
uncle gave him 50 cents and
told him, "Next time that you
cut it, set a price. Don't ever
do nothing without setting a
price."
Years later, in 1987, Faedo
started his own bakery, first on
Nebraska Avenue then moved
to Florida Avenue. Not includ-
ing himself and his children,
he has seven employees. Dif-
ferent employees go on their
own delivery routes, dropping
off bread to locations such
as South Tampa, Lakeland,

part of a lineage of bakeries
that dates back to the early
1900s on 7th Avenue in Ybor
City. Joe Diaz' father and
grandfather were both bak-
ers, making Darren the fourth
generation of this passing of
the torch.
"We've been at it all these

years," says Diaz, who gained
his skills at an early age.
"When I was 12 years old, I
could roll the bread better
than some bakers can today.
That's all handwork. Form
decorating cakes to throwing
batter, everything is all man-
ual."
Diaz, who eventually at-
tended the American Institute
of Baking in Chicago, worked
at La Paloma Bakery off Ne-
braska Avenue and Ybor City's
Victory Bakery, which opened
in the 40s during WWII. He
opened Olympia in 1952.
Though Olympia has been
operating for nearly 50 years
off Howard Avenue, seven
years ago they quit doing re-


tail and switched to large-
scale catering, hence the
name Olympia Catering.
"Today, we're making more
and more cakes than we've
ever made," says Diaz. "It's ri-
diculous the amount of pizzas
we're making."
Since everything must now
be specifically ordered, Olym-
pia has actually saved money
because they aren't wasting
money on food going stale.
"It's a fresher product," says
Diaz. "It's made strictly for
the customer." Olympia used
to have to throw away around
12 percent of its products
at the end of the day due to
stalingg". "You couldn't count
on customers coming in every
day for that loaf of bread like
it used to be," explains Diaz,
who refused to adulterate his
products with preservatives.
The current Howard Av-
enue location is complete with
front offices, a kitchen, stor-
age facilities, trucks and por-
table kitchens for the catering
jobs. Olympia even has a ca-


tering facility at the Museum
of Fine Arts in St. Petersburg.
Without question, Darren
Diaz is to thank for a lot of
Olympia's present success.
"He's done a tremendous
job," says his father. "He's
taken it to another level."
Joe Diaz retired 12 years
ago. "At the beginning, it re-
ally sucked," he says. "I didn't
know what to do with myself."
He still comes into the office
every day and helps Darren,
who got his degree in hotel
and restaurant management
from Cornell University, with
anything he needs.
."The bakery is coming
back," says Joe Diaz. "It's un-
believable what it's doing. I'm
pleasantly surprised."

operations for ten years until
the firm was sold to Gradiaz
and Annis Company in 1962.
After the sale, Gradiaz and
Annis Co. closed the factory
after absorbing its large in-
ventory of Cuban leaf tobacco,
the supply of which had been
cut off the by embargo.
In the 1970s, the old Mor-
gan factory became a tobacco
wholesale warehouse for Gon-
zalez and Sons. Today, the
building at 2802 N. Howard
Ave. is occupied by Advanced
Promotional Concepts, Inc.

Bustillo Brothers &
Diaz Cigar Company
The Bustillo Brothers and
Diaz Cigar Company was one
of the largest cigar operations


Rather than dividing opera-
tions across two factories per-
manently, the company built
a three-story factory on the
corner of Francis Avenue (Al-
bany Avenue) and Pine Street.
The factory, located at 2111
N. Albany Ave., opened in May
1902 and accommodated 600
workers.
Trouble soon followed. In
September 1902, 400 factory
workers went on strike after
Francisco Millian, the lector,
resigned after he was accused
by the management of read-
ing incendiary materials. It
was the first of many strikes
which would undermine the
company's success over the
years. Valentin Bustillo re-
tired in 1906, leaving Felipe
Bustillo and Jose Diaz to run


picketers. In retaliation, vigi-
lantes abducted two strikers
and lynched them. No one
was ever apprehended for
these crimes.
After mergers in January
1914, Jose Diaz became the
president of a conglomer-
ate of factories, with Felipe
Bustillo as his vice president.
Four years later, the Bustillo
Brothers and Diaz branch fac-
tory moved to Ybor, but the
move was only temporary. In
1931, the firm transferred op-
erations back to West Tampa
before finally closing its doors
in 1953.

Balbin Brothers
Cigar Company
In November 1904, the Bal-
bin Brothers Cigar Compa-
ny moved their 100 workers
from their factory on Franklin
Street in Tampa to the build-
ing in West Tampa formerly
occupied by the A. Santael-
la Company on the corner
of Howard Avenue and St.
John Street. The three Balbin
brothers-Gabriel, Miguel,
and Benigno-were all born in


Asturias, Spain, and learned
cigarmaking in Havana. Like
their contemporaries the
Bustillo Brothers, the Balbin
Brothers divvied up the firm's
responsibilities. Gabriel Bal-
bin managed the office, while
Miguel and Benigno super-
vised the production.
On October 2, 1910, the
Balbin Brothers' factory
caught fire during a strike. A
police officer claimed to have
seen a suspect running from
the building as the fire start-
ed, leading people to believe
the fire was the result of ar-
son. The damage to the build-
ing and tobacco stock was
extensive and estimated at
around $35,000.
After the fire, the Bal-
bin moved operations to the
Sold Samuel I. Davis factory
on Howard Avenue. With all
150 workers under the same
roof, the branches of the Bal-
bif Brothers Cigar Company
closed, localizing production
of the company's popular Eliz-
ardo and Balbin brands.
In 1915, the brothers sold
their company, including all
stocks, to the Tampa-Cuba
Cigar Company. The deal

HOLY HOG: A WELCOME WEST TAMPA ADDITION


Holy Hog Barbeque, locat-
ed at 3501 N. Armenia Ave.,
is a departure from tradi-
tional West Tampa cuisine,
but it has managed to entice
many in the area to try out its


Southern barbeque.
Danny Hernandez, 40, who
says he has a "passion for
the pig" is the owner of the
restaurant.- His father creat-
ed Pipo's Cafe in 1979. That


restaurant, which serves au-
thentic Cuban dishes, has
been incredibly successful
over the decades. Growing up
in the restaurant business,

and resources to start a new
business from scratch. Due
to the high concentration of
Latin restaurants in the area,
he came up with the unique
concept of Holy Hogs to bring
more diversity to the area.
"We've made a major in-
vestment in the neighbor-
hood," he says. "I think we've
earned West Tampa's respect
for that."
With Southern-style, slow-
smoked barbeque and sides
such as corn fritters, loaded
potato salad and macaroni


and cheese, Holy Hog fills a
niche for West Tampa. Com-
bine its originality with its
savory price point, and it's no
surprise it has gained the suc-
cess that it has.
"If you can make it in West
Tampa, I think you can make
it anywhere," says Hernandez.
Saturday, May 14 marks
the restaurant's first anniver-
sary. "The Hog turns one,"
says Hernandez, who guaran-
tees a great party full of good
barbeque, good drinks and
good company.

Cigar Company into a sub-
sidiarr with the name Bal-
bin Brothers and Company.
The deal also stipulated that
Gabriel and Benigno Balbin
would resign, while Miguel
Balbin would continue to su-
pervise production for the new
owners. The Tampa-Cuba Ci-
gar Company eventually re-
modeled the old Balbin Broth-
ers factory and consolidated
their manufacturing opera-
tions to a single plant.
In December 1923, Balbin
Brothers and Company was
dissolved along with other
subsidiaries. Soon after, at
the beginning of the Great De-
pression in 1929, the Tampa-
Cuba Company went out of
business.

Company was the first com-

na, and Faustino Lozano.
Once the firm had estab-
lished their West Tampa fac-
tory, they were operating two
in Tampa, one in New York,
and one in Cuba. In 1897,
Pendas and Alvarez (Loza-
no retired three years prior)
moved operations to a three-
story factory located at 1416
Spring Street in Tampa in
the area known as "Little Ha-
vana". The popularity of the
company's La Mia, Webster,
Farragut, Flor de Y Pendas,
and Alvarez brands ensured
rapid growth, and soon the
company outgrew the factory.
The company decided to build
a four-story building with a
$75,000 clock tower affixed
to it. The clock, the largest in
Florida, became a West Tam-
pa landmark. Today, the clock
is no longer functional.
Today, the building is on
the national historic registry

Samuel I. Davis
Company
Samuel I. Davis was born
in New York in 1862 and
started his first company in
1886 when he was just 24. In
September 1905, the Samuel
I. Davis Company moved its
cigar 'manufacturing center
from the old Joyce Cigar Com-
pany- building on Rock Road


Within a year after the
factory began to churn, the
workers went on strike, seek-
ing higher wages. It was
not the last time they would
strike. Around this time, Sam-
uel Davis' brother, Fred Davis,
became a partner in the firm
and the brothers acquired the
old Carlos Fernandez factory
at Howard Avenue and Slate
Street.
The newly-christened Da-
vis Brothers Cigar Company,
now with two factories and
over 600 workers, began con-
struction on a new factory
in December 1909. The new
factory was to be on the cor-
ner of Howard Avenue and
Cypress Street. Construction

Nevertheless, the Davis

severed. After Samuel Davis
died in January 1916, Fred
kept the company afloat un-
til February 1919 when the
factory workers again went
on strike. The workers re-
sented the newly installed
tobacco stripping machines
and called for their removal.
A few months later, the Da-
vis Brothers Cigar Company
merged with the Consolidated
Cigar Company.

ner of Howard Avenue and
LaSalle Street, which accom-
modated 400 workers; later
expansions allowed it to ac-
commodate 700. At the time
it was making brands such as
Don Cosme, Jose Vila, La Sin-
ceridad, La Evidencia, Marc
Anthony and Light It.
However on May 22, 1910,
the factory was sold to Morgan
Cigar Company and Berriman
Brothers moved their manu-
facturing center to a larger
plant at 18th Street and 13th
Avenue in Ybor City.
In 1914, "Colonel" W.T.
Morgan, affectionately known
as the "Georgian Cracker",
purchased the Berriman-Mor-
gan factory, investing $8,500
to revamp the building, which
then accommodated 1,000
workers. It sold renowned
brands such as Juan de Fuca,
F. Lozano, Wall's Court and
Don Sebastain. In 1964, the
factory was sold to the Gen-
eral Cigar Company, leaving
the building to the fate of cor-
porate investors. It sat vacant
for nearly 45 years and con-
tinued to become more and
more dilapidated until its cur-
rent owner, Engineer Nicholas
Jammal, P.E., took over and
transformed the factory into
Argosy University.
The building's moldy walls,


tory is a four-story building
located at 3102 N. Habana
Ave. In 1908, Andres Diaz
and Company, a New York
firm, was encouraged by John
Drew to occupy temporary
factory quarters in a small-
frame building at the corer
19th Avenue (Rome Avenue)
and Division Street (Nassau
Street) while Drew was build-
ing the factory's current loca-
tion. When it was completed
on May 15, 1908, it was one
of the most modern facto-
ries anywhere, selling brands
such as Terreno, Flor de A.
Diaz and La Flor de Scott.
In 1915, Jim Burns joined
the team as did Jose Mase-
da in 1921, with the goal to
manufacture the finest Ha-
vana cigars. In 1924, Andres
Diaz brought in his brother,
Ceferino, who became the
superintendent of manufac-
turing, and J.M. Cuyar, who
functioned as sales manager.
Andres Diaz was responsible
for purchasing leaf tobacco
from Cuba.
With over 200 employees
at its peak, the factory closed
in 1925.
The factory was later occu-
pied by the Francisco Arran-
go Company, followed by the

called Hoffman, Inc., who sold
it to Amevoit in the '60s. From
1976 to 1980, the building
stood empty until it was con-
verted into an office building
for Image Advertising.
Currently, the property is
owned by the Church of Sci-
entology, who purchased it in
2003 due to its large, expan-
sive space. They had moved
to the factory from a store-
front on Henderson Boule-
vard. While the church uses
the building sporadically for
some meetings and activities,
it has put it on the market
since moving into the central-
ized location at Ybor Square.
The church is hoping to find
a buyer who will continue to
take good care of the historic
factory.
