We wish everyone a joyous and
prosperous new year.

This week and next, we review
the past year's columns, but before
the review we have to mention the
passing of our dear friend, Bill
McBride.
A lot has and will be written
about Bill; we want to write a
few things that won't be penned
by others.
The Bill we remember is the
one who was coaching a youth
football team in Antioch while he
was trying to run for governor.


He stayed committed to the team
and promised to help each kid go
to college.
We recall Bill financially help-
ing an undocumented, high-
achieving high school student go
to a Florida university when his
dreams could have been shattered
by the State punishing him with
high out-of-state tuition rates.
We remember Bill often visit-
ing our father, Roland Manteiga,
while he lay in the hospital. He
bought him a giant stuffed gorilla
to brighten his day.
Bill gave our kids a dog and

always took interest in their lives.
A couple of days after the elec-
tion when he lost his bid for gov-
ernor, Bill called us to apologize
for letting us down. We've been
involved with politics for many,
many years and never have seen
a candidate sincerely apologize to


a supporter. Most often, they point
the finger of blame.
Bill McBride was the kind of
man who shouldered all the re-
sponsibility himself. He took all
the blame and worry and absorbed
it in his big frame and even bigger

This postcard is from 1947 of the
Hotel Thomas lefferson. It was
located at 117 Franklin Street at Wash-
ington Street.
Originally named Hotel Olive it
was constructed at the southeast
corner of Franklin and Washington
Street in 1909. In 1925 a ten story
annex was added on and it was
renamed the Hotel Thomas Jefferson.
A group of businessmen headed by
Paul H. Smith and Julian Cone
formed the Floridan Hotel operating
Company which purchased the Flori-
dan Hotel in 1943 and later in 1946
purchased the 162 room Hotel
Thomas Jefferson for $250,000.
The hotel's restaurant was the
Stable Room.
According to the St. Petersburg
Times, it was sold again in 1966 for
$300,000 to the Heart of Florida.
The building was demolished in
1969.
The postcard's caption read "This
hotel overlooks Tampa Bay and the
IBM residential section. Tampa's hotels
have kept pace with its other fast-
growing institutions. Everywhere are
t | tall office buildings and palatial resi-
dences mirrored by the glistening
waters of Tampa Bay set like a jewel
amidst palms and luxuriant tropical
i flowers".

"eA d6nde ird Bolivar ?
I Al respeto del mundo y la
ternura de los americanos!"
Jose Marti

Es asi como define el epigrafe
que hemos escogido de Marti -
otro gran heroe americano -
sobre la obra, la grandeza y la
posteridad del sol de America:
Sim6n Bolivar.
Este triunfador de la liber-
tad, todo tierra, todo tiempo,
es la America entera. Repre-
senta la historic del continent
americano, es un pedazo de
Moctezuma, de Tupac Amaru,
de los negros del cacaotal
marcados en rebafios, y del
taciturno indio en espera de
justicia.


"Dichosisimo aquel que corriendo por entire los escollos
de la guerra, de la political y de las desgracias puiblicas,
preserve su honor intacto". Sim6n Bolivar


Su sangre de la Espafia
del siglo XVI vino a mez-
clarse en esta tierra para luego
amarla y defenderla al realizar
su inconmensurable obra: la
emancipaci6n de America.
Cuatro etapas conforman su
intense vida:
El tiempo de formarse, el
tiempo de triunfar ante el
fracaso; un tercero, el de la
apoteosis, el cenit; y un uiltimo,
el del genio visionario que se
anticipa a una realidad con un
sentido magico en vislumbrar
las pasiones de los hombres al
trasluz.
No fue solamente en los
campos de batalla donde
radic6 su ingenio; para ello s6lo
bastaria mencionar una sola
de sus victorias. Lo es tambien
en su prosa, al descifrar los
enigmas que padecen pueblos

Hoy, a 182 afios de su

sigue iluminando los destinos
de esta pobre y rica America.
Aun falta por culminar su ideal
verdadero: la unificaci6n de los
pueblos americanos.

que Bolivar culmina en una

El impact que
Por Sebastian Varone
Una amiga me dice en estos
dias que se sentia negative. Le
pregunte Por que?, no sabia.
Le dije que dejara de pensar
tanto. En ese estado animico,
es controlar por lo que quizd
pasara o por lo que piensas
que no puedes hacer. Mas bien
es un asunto de afinar el oido
para notar cuando alguien
compete algCin acto inmoral
o fracasa en las finanzas. Ya
que por cada persona que cae
hay miles de hombres y mu-
jeres fieles que a lo largo de
su vida demuestran una etica-
intachable.
S& consciente del impact
que la negatividad tiene en
tu vida, que puede literal-
mente destruir tu destiny,
robarte una vida satisfactoria
y abundante. Te impide que
desarrolles tu potential y pier-
das el plan que Dios tiene para
tu vida. Averigua lo que hay
en tu coraz6n simplemente
escuchandote hablar. Date
cuenta de la ansiedad que ex-
presas o de la desesperaci6n
que confiesas. Esta actitud
se ve reflejada aun en los
comentarios mas sencillos.
La negatividad refleja frus-
traci6n interior. dTienes al-

gente tiene frustraciones que
las expresan de muchas for-
mas, incluso, hasta de forma
agresiva, s61o por no star
de acuerdo con un punto de
vista. A menudo se manifiesta
en contra de las circunstan-
cias, la gente o el gobierno.
Le echas la culpa a tu padre,
madre, lider, jefe o c6nyuge.
Sin importar la circunstan-
cia, creo que la negatividad no
tiene que ver con estas cosas;
tiene que ver contigo y lo que
ocurre en tu interior. Revisate.
Generalmente podemos
justificar nuestros pensamien-
tos y acciones. Normalmente
tenemos buenas razones para

bargo, debemos mantenernos
firms en nuestra determi-
nacion por alcanzar el texito,
porque tan pronto como em-
pecemos a auto-justificarnos
nos negaremos la oportunidad
de cambiar v crecer. La gente
negative se basa en sus expe-
riencias negativas para rear
sus creencias y opinions y
despues justifican su position
echandole la culpa a lo que les
ha sucedido.
Una persona positive tiene
muchas mas probabilidades
de cambiar v alinearse con su
potential. Necesitamos tener
much cuidado al escoger con
quien pasamos nuestro tiem-
po y quien dejamos que nos de

que quizas pasara. Afecta cada
area de tu vida y se amplifica
en el "6Y si... tal cosa?" .Y si

"Que si tengo que organizer mi

La negatividad, la frus-

juntas. Una persona ansiosa

Su perspective en la vida esta
desproporcionada. Las cosas
pequefias parecen enormes.

"MAs aIll del amor"
por Octavio Paz
Todo nos amenaza:
el tempo, que en vivientee
fragments divide
al que fui
del que eerd,
como el machete a la culebra;
la conciencia, la traneparencia
traspaeada,
la mirada ciega de mirarse mirar;
las palabrae, guantes grises,
polvo mental sobre /a yerlba,
el agua, la piel;
nuestroe nombree, que entire tu y
yo se levantan,
murallas de vacfo que ninguna
trompeta derrumba.

Niel sueoy sou pueblo de imdgenes
rotas,
ni el delirio y u espuma proMtica,
ni el amor con sus dientes y ur/as
noe bastan.


U


Ma~ all/ de nosotros,
en las fronteras del sery el estar,
una vida mds vida noe reclama.

Afuera la noche respira, ee
extiende,
Ilena de grandee hojae calientes,
de espejoe que combaten:
frutoe, garras, ojoo, follajes,
espaldas que relucen,
cuerpos que se abren paso entire
otros cuerpos.

Tidndete aqufa la orilla de tanta
espuma,
de tanta vida que ee ignore y se
entrega:
td tamkbidn pertenecee a la noche.
Exti/dndete, klancura que reepira,
late, oh estre/la repartida,
copa, pan que inclinas la balanza
* del lado de la aurora,
pausa de sangre entire este tiem-
po y otro ein media.

Frutos secos y sus

propiedades nutricionales


Desde mi escritorio

Por Arturo R; Rivera


Obstruccion Republicana


Los frutos secos: ideales para la dieta alimenticia de personas
que requieren un alto rendimiento y una actividad intense


En este rubro encontramos
las almendras, nueces, mani
y pistachos, entire otros. Ellas
proven fibra, proteinas, vita-
minas, minerales y un tipo de
grasa que ayuda a disminuir el
cholesterol.
Los frutos secos, en general,
son alimentos concentrados
energeticamente, pero muy nu-
tritivos, es decir, poseen alta
densidad cal6rica porque en
poco volume concentran gran
cantidad de calories. Al mismo
tiempo, estan colmados de nu-
trientes beneficiosos para el or-
ganismo. Entre las propiedades
nutricionales que destacan en
los frutos secos podemos nom-
brar su contenido en grasas sa-
ludables, muchos de ellos con
acidos grasos omega-3 en su
composicion.
Dada la gran concentration
de nutrients, su contenido en
fibra y proteinas vegetables, los


fruitos secos son aliados de una
buena salud cardiovascular,
pues sus grasas saludables asi
como su alto contenido en po-
tasio, protegen nuestros vasos
sanguineos, ayuda a reducir la
presi6n arterial y disminuyen el
cholesterol que es dafiino para
la salud mientras aumenta el
cholesterol bueno en la sangre.
Los frutos secos contienen
gran cantidad de antioxidants
y entire ellos destacan las
nueces que contienen potentes
neutralizadores de los radicales
libres mas alli de su vitamin E
que protege a las celulas ante la
oxidacidn y el envejecimiento.
Igualmente, se ha demostra-
do que un pufiado de nueces
ayuda a reducir las grass de la
zona estomacal si se consume
a diario, debido al poder anti-
inflamatorio de sus omega 3 y
a los [polifenoles antioxidants
que posee.


Curiosidades Historicas

huida a Tahiti) pero no se lle-

"Sufrir sin quejarse es la uinica
lecci6n que debemos aprender
en esta vida".


El primer ferrocarril sub-

prohibida en 2002 (despu6s de

Tal parece que el Partido
Republican no se ha enterado
que perdi6 las elecciones y
el pueblo americano decidio
aceptar cl program politico del
president Obama, que tcnia
como una de sus propuestas
aumentar los impuestos a los
americanos con ingresos supe-
riores a los $250,000 anuales.
Dicha propuesta eliminaria la
rebaja en los impuestos que
realize el president George
W. Bush en el 2001, la que ha
ocasionado en parte el actual
deficit presupuestario.
Para el 31 de diciembre
de este afio caducaran los
recortes a los impuestos a los
millonarios, que el president
Bush aprob6, y entraran en
vigor profundas reducciones
al gasto ptblico en partidas
como la defense, seguridad
social para jubilados yj6venes
discapacitados. Todo eso para
recuperar la salud financiera
de la naci6n y reducir el deficit.
Desafortunadamente, el
Congress, en la Camara de
Representantes, dominada por
el Partido Republicano, se ha
cefiido a su traditional nega-

propuestas por el
president Obama.

Buon Cavodanno 2013


Un augurio a tutti voi per
un buon inizio d' anno 2013,
che possa essere pieno di tutto
quello che ognuno di voi desi-
dera e sopratutto che possa es-
sere l'inizio della fine di questa
grossa crisis economic.
Questa settimana vogliamo
portare alla vostra conoscenza
come e' nato il discorso di cele-
brare 1'inizio di un nuovo anno.
11 Capodanno risale alla festa
del dio romano Giano. Nel VII
secolo i pagani delle Fiandre,
seguaci dei druidi, avevano
-il costume di festeggiare il
passaggio al nuovo anno; tale
culto pagano venne deplorato
da Sant'Eligio che redargui il
popolo delle Fiandre dicendo
loro: "A Capodanno nessuno
faccia empie ridicolaggini quali
l'andare mascherati da gioven-
che o da cervi, o fare scherzi e
giochi, e non stia a tavola tutta
la notte ne segua l'usanza di
doni augurali o di libagioni ec-
cessive. Nessun cristiano creda
in quelle donne che fanno i
sortilegi con il fuoco, ne sieda
in un canto, perched e opera
diabolica".
Nel Medioevo, molti paesi
europei usavano il calendario
giuliano, ma vi era un'ampia
variety di date che indicavano
il moment iniziale dell'anno.
Per esempio dal XII secolo fino
al 1752 in Inghilterra e in Ir-
landa il capodanno si celebrava
il 25 marzo mentre in Spagna
fino all'inizio del Seicento il
cambio dell'anno era il 25
dicembre, giorno della Nativi-
ta. In Francia fino al 1564 il
Capodanno veniva festeggiato
nella domenica di Resurrezione
a Venezia era il 1 marzo men-
tre in Puglia, in Calabria e in
Sardegna lo si festeggiava se-
guendo lo stile bizantino che lo
indicava al 1 settembre, tant'e


vero che in sardo settembre si
traduce Caputanni (dal latino
Caput anni).
Queste diversity local (che,
specialmente nel Sacro Roma-
no Impero variavano spesso
da citta a citta), continuarono
anche dopo l'adozione del
calendario gregoriano. Solo
nel 1691 papa Innocenzo XII
emend6 il calendario. del suo
predecessor stabilendo che
l'anno dovesse cominciare il 1
gennaio, cioe second lo stile
modern o della Circoncisione.
L'adozione universal del ca-
lendario gregoriano fece si che


anche la data del 1" gennaio
come inizio dell'anno divenne
infine comune.
Svariati regimi politics hanno
istituito riforme del calendario
di piui o meno lunga durata.
Una delle piu intrusive, che
cercava di riformare il calen-
dario su basi astronomiche e
razionali, fu quella adottata
in Francia durante la Prima
Repubblica, il c.d. Calendario


Repubblicano, abbandonato
poi durante il Primo Impero.
Anche durante il period
fascista in Italia il regime isti-
tui il 28 ottobre, anniversario
della marcia su Roma, come
proprio capodanno, associate
ad una numerazione degli anni
parallel a quella tradizionale
contando come "Anno I dcll'Era
Fascista" il period tra il 28
ottobre 1922 ed il 27 ottobre
1923, e gli altri a seguire.
Questa modalitai, utilizzata nel
Regno d'Italia durante tutto il
ventennio fascista, fu conti-
nuata dalla Repubblica Sociale


Italiana, ed abbandonata con luoghi una festa religiosa di

In occasion di questa celebra-
zione, in quasi tutte le citta del
mondo si sparano i tradizionali
fuochi artificial, solitamente
accompagnati (nei paesi an-
glosassoni) dalla canzone Auld
Lang Sync.
Molti la considerano anche
un'occasione per fare dei buoni
propositi per il nuovo anno
La tradizionc italiana preve-
de una series di rituali scara-
mantici per il primo dell'anno
che possono essere rispettati
piu o meno strettamente come
quello di vestire biancheria in-


tima di colore rosso o di gettare
dalla finestra oggetti vecchi o
inutilizzati (quest'ultima usan-
za e stata quasi completamente
abbandonata). Le lenticchie
vengono mangiate a cena il
31 dicembre come auspicio
di ricchezza per l'anno nuovo
ed un'altra tradizione prevede
il baciarsi sotto. il vischio in
segno di buon auspicio.
In Spagna c'e la tradizione di
mangiare alla mezzanotte dodi-
ci chicchi d'uva, uno per ogni
rintocco dei dodici scoccati da
un orologio (il principal e quel-
lo di Puerta del Sol a Madrid).
In Russia, dopo il dodicesimo
rintocco, si apre la porta per far
entrare l'anno nuovo. In tutta
l'ex Unione Sovietica e usanza
scambiarsi ed aprire i regali.
Spesso vengono regalati cioc-
colatini o pupazzetti corrispon-
denti all'animale simbolo del
calendario cinese dell'anno che
verra. In Ecuador ed in Periu si
esibiscono fuori la propria abi-
tazione dei manichini di carta-
pesta (a volte con le sembianze
di personaggi famosi, calcia-
tori, etc.) riempiti di petardi
cosi da bruciare ed esplodere
ai rintocchi della mezzanotte.
In Giappone, prima della mez-
zanotte, le famiglie si recano
nei templi per bere sake ed
ascoltare 108 colpi di gong che
annunciano 1'arrivo di un nuo-
vo anno (si ritiene infatti che
questo sia il numero dei peccati
che una persona commette in
un anno e che in tal modo ci
si purifichi).
In tanti paesi che seguono il
calendario Gregoriano, tra cui
gli Stati Uniti, il Regno Unito,
I'Italia e altri, il Capodanno
e anche una festa civil. In
molti paesi, se il 1 gennaio
cade di sabato o domenica,
allora il venerdi precedent o il
lunedi successive sono anche
festivi. Israele & il solo paese
che, pur usando il calendario
gregoriano, non celebra il Ca-
podanno come festa pubblica.
La ragione ufficiale e che essa
nascerebbe come festa della
Chiesa Cristiana, anche se
molti altri paesi a maggioran-
za non cristiana festeggiano il
Capodanno. Nondimeno. molti
israeliti che vivono specialmen-
te in Nord America o in Europa
lo festeggiano privatamente.

shows, and radio spots. No
matter what they cost, Cesar
Gonzmart and the Don Quixote
Orch., featured the greatest
professional pianist ever pro-
duced in Tampa entertainment
- and she WAS Good!.
But even Cesar knew what
a disservice it was to have
her chained to a piano in the
Quixote bar. For Adela, a con-
cert stage was needed. She
struggled on, helping Cesar.
The difference in musicianship
was marked people waited
for Adela to play. She did not
play every night. He covered by
bringing in guest stars.
But Cesar, full of his own
bears, acted as if he didn't noti-
ce the great disparity of talent!
But Adela did. Silently, she
was glad that Casimiro had not
lived to see her humiliation,
playing with so inferior a band.
And Cesar grew more and
more inflated every night. One
month he had a real Mexican
band, playing nightly "Cherry
White and Apple Blue" and the
profits went through the roof.
Big bucks!
"You see, Adela, that what
we can do with a number one
record, and do touring. Cesar
Gonzmart and the Columbia
Band, featuring Adela!"
"Cesar, we run a restaurant.
Food is our business, not mu-
sic," she would say every night.
Things were always ar-


ranged for her.
Cesar had begun on her in
his suave, lightweight way. He
made her laugh; he brought
his violin and played for her.
He was very good. Someday,
he would like to play a duet
with her. She flushed. No boy
had ever dared to pay atten-
tion to her. "Play a duet? Well,
I'll ask my mother, a romantic
duet?"
So started a very distant,
lightweight romance, which
the innocent mother did not
recognize as such. But Adela
did, and soon she was Ce-
sar's. But there was no way
to get her alone. And now a
solution!
She forgot to tell Carmen
that she needed to provide
transportation from the high
school to the symphony hall.
Seizing the moment, Cesar
suggested he would take her
in his coupe and return her
to her house! She jumped at
the chance.
Alone with Cesar. In a cdr.
And a rehearsal with Cesar.
And a ride back alone, along
Bayshore Boulevard alone.
THE SHOOTING
One Saturday afternoon
when all the men in Ybor are
either hunting, fishing, play-

ing a nap, and Lawrence was

the porch. Though the shades
were up, the SHOT was clear.
She placed herself at the
foot of the bed. She could see
Lawrence with his lady. On
the side window, stood Scar-
face with a large revolver. He
had a clear shot in case she
missed. Fat chance.
For some reason, she got
rattled. It was different pump-
ing shells into a body of a live
man. Especially not your own!
But, she hated him enough to
take the shot. Two shots into
his ass.
She realized she had closed
her eyes and she wasn't sure
the shots had hit his ass. She
ran to her car as fast as she
could. She ran barefooted
over grass.
She heard two big shots
following. Bam! Bam! What
was that? Where were they
coming from?
Into the car, they sped
down Nebraska heading out
to the highway to Gainesville
"What the heck was that?"
"Beat me. You got your two
shots in!
'Yeah, I guess so."
"We'll soon see. You get
home and take a nap."
"What do I do with the
gun?" he asked Libby. It
was, after all, his gun. "Give

Dr. Kelly Miliziano is a classy, studi-
ous, well-traveled person who shares her
talents as a teacher and social studies
department head...
By all measures, Dr. Miliziano is what
is right with our schools.
It appears to us that Dl)avid Caton
has morphed his porn addiction into a
born-again status and turned his love of
God into a hatred focused upon gays and
Muslims.
By all measures, l)avid Caton is what
is wrong with our world.
He is now well out of his league in
attacking Dr. Kelly Miliziano's teaching
style.
Her outreach has brought Buddhists.
pastors, rabbis, Vietnam vets and a
host of others to speak to classes. She
recently supported having nmam Has-
san Shibly, the head of the local Council
on American-Islamic Relations, to speak
to her students, who were studying the
Islamic empires...She brings in speakers
to make the students' studies more real
and relevant than the text book.
David Catoi thinks this is absolutely
horrible and wants to go into our schools
to warn students of the danger Muslims
pose to America and he is waging an
email and blogging campaign against Dr.
Miliziano and the school district.

Democrat Craig Latimer got a contri-
bution for his campaign for Supervisor of
Elections that sticks out. He got a check
from Beverly Austin. Ms. Austin is the
wife of Al Austin, one of the most stalwart
Republicans we have ever met.
Mayor Bob Buckhorn is starting to
make his mark upon Tampa. On Janu-
ary 5, he announced that the old Federal
Courthouse will be redeveloped as a hotel.
*There is worry in the air about pro-
testers descending upon Tampa during
the Republican National Convention...
There is concern that some of the group
- we've heard the term "anarchists" want
to create chaos, mayhem and destruction.
We are as sure they exist as we are sure a
few hooligans can ruin a soccer game. We
hope in preparing for the worst we don't
plant a seed with our police, merchants
and citizens to expect the worst from the
protesters. This mindset can create a self-
fulfilling prophecy.
Instead of meeting this group with
scowls, sharp commands and riot gear,
why not embrace the protesters with
smiles, useful information and organiza-
tion?
January 27
If the Democrats are ever going to
be a factor in this state, the Democratic
Party is going to have to take advantage
of the Republican abandonment of His-
panics...
Mayor Bob Buckhorn refused to
give the key to the city to the Gasparilla
pirates on Tuesday. This is the first time
that a mayor has offered more than token
resistance to the tradition...
Florida Republicans will decide on
Tuesday, January 31, which GOP presi-
dential candidate will get 50 delegates
to take to the convention in August in
Tampa.
There is finally a little excitement in
the air as the election is just four days
away, but it's just a little. We think Re-
publican turnout is going to be low...
We will give the win to Romney...

lost as illegals fled the state, $244.5 mil-
lion were lost in state taxes and $93.1 mil-
lion vanished in city and county taxes...

Tom Scott is considering running for
Supervisor of Elections. Reverend Scott is
a former County Commissioner and City
Councilman...
Last week was a good one for State
Representative Shawn Harrison. Four
of his bills came up on' the agendas of
different committees arnd all passed
unanimously.
One was the Falliin I leroes l'aimily Tax

Rick Santorum has done more to
reawaken the women's movement than
anyone else in three decades and this
election could be a game changer for
Democrats as young women realize there

parties...
A couple of bishops and a Throttlebot-

THE PILL. THE PILL is singularly the
most liberating medical creation for womn-

if a woman can't control her reproductive
system. It's hard to worry about college or
rising to the top of the business world if
you have seven, eight, nine or 10 babies
in a lifetime...
For Rick Santorum to have risen as far
as he has in the Republican presidential
race proves the t(OP is far out of touch
with women and how quickly women's
rights could be set back...

Like Van Gogh pursuing the perfect,
yellow, our Irish mayor is obsessed with
the perfect green. He wanted the Hills-
borough River to match the dyed green of
the Chicago River on St. Patrick's Day. He
called up the Windy City to discover its
secret, but found it was closely guarded
by the plumbers union. He asked our lo-
cal union to intervene, but tIhe formula
couldn't even be shared among brothers.
The mayor had to resort to locking a

The media is quick to vilify the in-
ept Sanford Police Chief Bill Lee for not
arresting George Zimmerman for' the
shooting death of Trayvon Martin, but
the 2005 "Stand Your Ground" law is the
real villain.
Thle law's description reads, "au-
thorizing a law enforcement agency to
investigate the use of deadly force but
prohibiting the agency from arresting the
person unless the agency determines that
there is probable cause that the force the
person used was unlawful."
It's not often laws are written to pro-
hibit the arresting of a person. Most do
the opposite. The wording makes it very
difficult to make a quick arrest...

Baseball Hall of Famner Al Lopez'

it has been unable to find a suitable site.

Governor Rick Scott appointed over
.100 people to various boards before the
last legislative session, who needed Sen-
ate confirmation to become official. The
Senate ignored the list and its duty, so
till those appointees remain unconfirmed.
The normal response by a governor would
be to leave the appointees in their posi-

session for confirmation.
We are told this governor was prepared
to remove or fire the 4.100 appointees front
their position Ito punish the Senate for its
failure of duty.
Cooler heads prevailed and lihe gover-
nor was convinced the .100 well-connected
Republican appointees he was going to

As we've been hearing,
prominent Republican strat-
egists are increasingly ac-
knowledging that demograph-
ics are against them, and the
GOP is too easily typecast as
the party of- to quote Doones-
bury- "'angry, straight, white,
well-armed, evangelical men."
Well, instead of a thwart-
Obama-at-all-costs or a Marco
Rubio-as-savior strategy, why'
not this for a plan to broaden
appeal? Why not take all that
"American Exceptionalism"
and "America First" rheto-
ric and make it mean some-
thing beyond bumper-sticker
ideology? Why not truly take
one for the country, forsake
faux patriotism and selective
Founding Father fodder in
favor of actually playing the
populist not the panderer?
Moreover, it could still be self-
serving but, more impor-
tantly, in the ironic context of
enlightened self interest.
First, officially call off
the canonization of Grover
Norquist and the demoniza-
tion of Barack Obama. Let
John Boehner come out of the
closet as the near-extinct-spe-
cies, moderate GOPster that
he used to be. Then act like
authentically patriotic "coun-
try-firsters" as well as po-
litically savvy players in a mi-
nority party that was soundly
defeated in last month's elec-
tion. The GOP, as you're sur-
mising, is no longer Tea Party
ascendant.
Then think: deficit negotia-
tions and gun control. There's
still time to get on the right
sides. Too many voters now
see "principled" stands for the
disingenuous grandstands
that they have been.
First as in yesterday -
there's the regrettably labeled
"fiscal cliff' that precipices-off
the lion's share of the elector-


ate, as well as the business
community and international
markets. Pre-empt it by ac-
knowledging that any ecui-
table solution should, indeed,
include higher taxes on the af-
fluent. Drop the income quali-
fier down to, say, at least half
a million dollars. And accept
the rates of I lie Clinton era,
which still hlas feel-good, bah-
anced-budget resonance. That
won't bother most of the folks
who don't qualify for higher
rates, which is just about ev-
erybody in the country!'
For good measure, talk up
addressing the entitlements
side of the equation via means
testing. It's inevitable as well
as equitable anvhow. tAc
knowledge and cheerlead fbr
fairnesss" the principle that
truly matters only this time
mean it.
Weapons In Context
Next, get in sync with the
majority of Americans who
understandably think that
military-style assault weap-
ons only belong in a. well,
military context. That there
are no reasonable rationales
for ordinary citizens to have
access to high-capacity niaga-
zines. It's the weapon parlay
from hell and obviously at
odds with any meaningful def-
inition of the coniton good.
This has nothing to do with
"Live Free or Die" more like
"Have Gun, Will Unravel."
Don't look at this as any-
thing but a common-cause
concession to common sense.
Then make it clear that the
National Rifle Association is
no longer a GOP puppet mas-
ter, let alone an entity to be
treated as a de facto branch
of government. "Gun control"
can no longer be allowed to
remain a "third rail" issue in
contemporary American poli-
tics. People will die unneces-


sarily because of gun politics
as usual.
Then concede that anybody
claiming to channel a Second
Amendnment-ratifying Found-
ing Father is a posturing, pre-
sumptuoutl)os Ipanlderer to the
reiactionary right and hlas no
place in a GOP with a make-
over in nmiiid. Then admit what
it is in Article 11 that precedes
"... the right of tihe people to
keep and bear arms, shall not
be infringed" as it was passed
by Congress in 1789 and rati-
tied by three-fourths of the
states onil Dec. 15, 1791t It is:
"A well-regulated militia, hbe-
ing necessary to the security
of a free State ..."
Context always matters.
Now more than ever.
The ratifiers, quite argu-
ably, were about militias,
muskets and a post-Revolu-
tionary, agricultural America
- not stand-your-grounders,
semi-automatics and violent
pop culture-crazed, mental
health-challenged, 2 1st-cen-
tuiry society.
Then get ahead of the soci-
etal curve as well as upcom-
ing proposed legislation and
the president s Iiaugurationl
and State of' the Union bully
pulpits on improving ac
ctss to iment.il health treat-
inenlt. Don't back down rolnt
those who do with the First
Aminendmllent what you've long
done with the Second. They've
perverted it. There should be
no (uin)safe haven for gratu-
itous, numbing violence and
its glorification in theaters.
arcades or homes.
Anyone think that social
recluse Adam Lanza wasn't
impacted by those countless
hours in front of a basement
screen anonymously playing
violent video games with peo-
ple lihe did not know?
GOP, there's much more


]OPinions To Qo

GOP Brand Change Still Possible


than the viability of your party
hanging in the balance at this
juncture. There's the future of
America its economic health
and its societal soul.
You want to get rid of that
47 percent albatross? That
greed-head label that disdains
the have-nots? That image of
mass killings as the price of
freedom?
Prove it.
Polling Oddity
Let's see if we have this
right.
According to a new Quinni-
piac University poll, Gov. Rick
Scott remains unpopular with
Florida voters. Tellingly, 53
percent of Republicans say
they'd like another Republi-
can to mount a primary chal-
lenge to Scott in 2014.
The poll, however, also
found that Republican voters
do give Scott a 63-19 percent
job approval rating. Moreover,
GOP voters say by a 55-26
percent margin that he de-
serves a second chance. Say
what?
I say Quinnipiac should be
out of chances.
Speaking of Youthful
Much has been made of the
refreshing youth of the new
Speaker of the Florida House,
Wesley Chapel's Will Weath-
erford, who recently turned
33. He came in with the class
of 2006. By all accounts, the
District 38 Republican is
not, mercifully, another cen-
tral casting pol prone to fur-
ther polarizing Tallahassee
politics. We'll soon see how
hie handles both sides of the
aisle.
While Weatherford's
30-something Speakership
is noteworthy, it should be
noted that it isn't historic. We
were reminded of this fact last
week with the passing of Doyle
Conner, Florida's Agriculture
Commissioner from 1961-
91. Before that, the Bradford
County Democrat had been
elected Speaker in 1957 at
age 28.
Sports Shorts
In years past the Nation-
al Hockey League could be
given credit for not scheduling
games out of deference to
families with better priorities
- on Christmas Eve or Christ-
mas Day. Obviously the NHL's
unconscionably stupid lock-
out rendered that moot this
year.
But the National Basket-
ball Association has main-
tained its holiday tradition
with five games that's not
a typo nationally televised
(from noon to 10:30 p.m.) on
December 25th. Nothing says
"Merry Christmas" quite like:
Celtics at Nets, Knicks at Lak-
ers. Thunder at Heat, Rockets
at Bulls and Nuggets at Clip-
pers.
This was the year of living
dangerously for USF and the
Big East. It might get worse for
USF football even under well-
regarded, high-energy new

Only now USF is coming
off of consecutive losing, non-

off a 10-win season topped by
a Beef '0' Brady's Bowl rout
of Ball State, a team that beat
USF this year. The 2013 UCF-

can't afford to be the second-

"I've always felt that part of
being a citizen of a communi-
ty is being involved as much
as possible in the issues and
causes of the community,"
said Bill McBride in La Gace-
ta's "Silhouettes" on Septem-
ber 18, 1987. He added that
his civic policy was to "put my
money where my mouth is."
McBride, who passed away
on Saturday, December 22 at
age 67, was described as "a
man who is not afraid to take
a stand on what he believes."
McBride, who in i1987 was
the head of Tampa's Holland &,
Knight law firm, would extend
these ideals to his 2002 g-t

his outward desire to lead by
consensus." The "folksy man
of the people" was also illus-
trated humorously as "an avid
outdoorsman who would rath-
er be fishing," with an affinity
for cheeseburgers.
U.S. Senator Bill Nelson
said in a statement, "Bill Mc-
Bride was larger than life."
The 6-foot-3, physically im-

appear larger-than-life was

instituted a living wage, so a
person working at the firm,
even in the mail room, could
receive high enough wages to
afford an apartment, food and
transportation. He got the firm
to recognize same-sex part-
nerships for benefits, such as
health insurance. He worked
to have women treated fairly
and have them rise in the firm.
He also drove the firm to take
on more pro bono cases, even
if the cases were complex and
controversial.
One of the most famous
pro bono cases was Rosewood
victims v. the State of Florida,
which awarded $150,000
to each person who lived in
Rosewood, Florida during a
violent racial massacre that
occurred in 1923, killing six
blacks and two whites. The
black community of Rosewood
was destroyed in an attack by
whites. The 1994 ruling also
established a $500,000 pool
of funds to people who could
prove they had descendants
who lived in Rosewood during
that time.
In 2001, McBride resigned
from Holland & Knight to run
for Florida governor. After de-
feating Janet Reno in 2002's
Democratic primary, he lost to
incumbent Republican Gover-
nor Jeb Bush. Following his
gubernatorial campaign, Mc-
Bride joined the law firnn of
Barnett, Bolt, Kirkwood, Long
& McBride. At the time of his
passing, he was a senior part-
ner. In 2010, he supported his
wife, Florida Chief Financial
Officer Alex Sink, in her run
for governor. He and Sink had


two children, Bert, a law stu-
dent, and Lexi, a medical stu-
dent. In a Tampa Bay Times
article, McBride was described
by law partner and friend Bob
Bolt as "the most fantastic
father in the world": "He al-
ways made sure he got home
at night to see his kids. They


are the most important thing
in his life, both of them."
McBride's colorful per-
sonality, friendly spirit and
professionalism were remem-
bered by politicians and col-
leagues alike. Mayor Bob
Buckhom called McBride "a
good man known for his car-
ing heart," while former Mayor
Pam lorio related, "He em-
braced life so that it seems
all the more shocking that his
life has ended...There was so
much good in him." Senator
Bill Nelson continued in his
statement, "He was one of the
great business, legal and po-
litical leaders of Florida, and
he is a friend that many of us
will miss."
Democratic National Com-
mitteeman and Hillsborough
County State Committee-
man Alan Clendenin said in
a statement, "...Our state has
lost Bill McBride, a true cham-
pion of the middle class and
public education. Although
Bill's passing will leave a hole
in our hearts, his lifelong com-
mitment to public service will
leave a lasting impact upon
out community and state.
Anyone lucky enough to have
known him will miss his in-
credible smile, kind heart and
warm spirit."

Ms. Calvert is a Tea Party

Party credentials, confusion
over Victor's/Charlie's name

Republicans and you have a Re-

Crist could be in trouble against
a newcomer.
But this is a universal pri-

I saw a spotted stuffed el-
ephant languishing under-
neath a silver Christmas tree.
Come to think of it, my niece
loves elephants...and polka


dots. I asked Hermey if I could
buy the elephant for her, but
he, in a rare moment of glee,
shoved the toy into my mes-
senger bag. He gave me the
toy free of charge. "Give this to
her... and tell her Hermey the
Misfit Elf says, 'Merry Christ-
mas and Happy Holidays!"


We all know what hap-
pened to Rudolph the Red-
Nosed Reindeer. After being
called cruel names and for-
bidden from joining in any
reindeer games, he ran off to
the Island of Misfit Toys, seek-
ing temporary shelter and ac-
ceptance. In a misguided bid
to find his family after he
ran away, he discovered they
were tragically kidnapped by
the Abominable
Snow Monster,
who had a sinis- H
ter plan to make
reindeer marma-
lade from their
remains.
The story
turned from trag-
edy to triumph
when the evil
snow monster
was overcome
by Yukon Cor-
nelius, a pros-
pector searching
for riches, and
was rehabilitated
into niceness.
Rudolph, who
was bullied for
his looks by his
fellow reindeer
colleagues, re-
ceived top billing
on Santa's flight
team and used
his shiny, lu-
minescent nose
to light the way
for Saint Nick's
sleigh, forever
and ever.
Also, Rudolph
made a special,
"forever friend-
ship" with a ju-
nior elf named
Hermey, who had
a grating voice "What I
and a trademark I
swoop of blond
hair falling out
from under his tiny, pointy
cap.
Hermey, however, remem-
bers it differently. In his first
ever interview, the aging elf,
who really just wanted to be a
dentist, wanted to set the re-
cord straight about misunder-
standings and scandal that
have dogged him since 1'964,
when the above incident took
place.
I met Hermey in his North
Pole office. There, Hermey
provides pro bono dental care
to Santa Claus, Mrs. Claus,
millions of toys, reindeer and
his former elf colleagues. His
office was littered with real
and fake toy teeth. A poster
bearing the words "Don't For-
get to Brush!" with a picture
of a smiling kitten in an elf
hat provides a stark counter-
balance to" the wintry scene
outside.
Hermey is now in his mid-
60s and still looks barely 20.
His face is lineless and his
stature diminutive he stands
at barely 5' tall. He still has
his trademark swoop of blond
hair, although he admit-
ted, "It's a dye job now...I'm
all grey." He is unquestion-
ably bitter about... something.
"Would you like a damn candy
cane? Hahaha, just kidding.
They rot your teeth, you know.
"Is your recorder on? There
are a few things I'd like to say
about my time up here at the
North Pole," Hermey said in
his legendarily nasal, slightly
cloying voice. "The TV docu-
mentary you speak of got it all
wrong. I tell you, never trust
the media. Heck, I don't even
trust you. First of all, Sam the
Snowman didn't even sound
like Burl Ives, who I'm sure is
a nice guy, but he was dubbed.
Sam really had a voice like Er-


nest Borgnine. But that never
would have flown on national
television. The NBC honchos
wanted us to be 'cute' for the
little kids.
"Also, did you know that
Rudolph the Red-Nosed Rein-

his face. "Rudolph's whole

In fact, he got all the fame

NBC had, to create some sobt
story, so they made it appear
Rudolph had this really tragic.
crazy life prior to becoming ani
icon. The truth was he was
eating steaks in bearnaisc
sauce with asparagus every
day, while the other reindeer
ate garbage. BOOM."
Did they actually let Ru-
dolph enjoy reindeer games?
"Rudolph was like the Michael
Phelps of the Reindeer Games.
But, of course, the big cheeses
at the network had to make
it look like he was some sad,
lonely figure. I think he was
using steroids; I really do."
But we digress... what
about the allegation that he
was "on the take"? "Well, NBC
knew they wouldn't have any
viewers if they just did a cute
stop-motion story about a
reindeer with a shiny nose. So
they manufactured this sad
story about how he was treat-
ed poorly and his parents were
kidnapped, yada, yada, yada,
blah, whatever, man. NBC
agreed to pay him $250,000

worked. It was the first North
Pole reality TV show ever and
none of it was real. Rudolph
invested well, but despite his
success, hle lever gave Ime

Now that Hlermcy is in a
talking mood, what does he
think about his fellow elves
and, of course, Santa Claus?
"Santa is alright. I mean, he's
my employer, so I have to say


that. The other elves...well,

Note:- I am writing this col-
umn on December 23.
Ben is the Grinch. He has
stolen Christmas from our
house.
We normally place our
Christmas tree in our living
room, the room we are in the
most, obviously so that we
are near it the most. While it
may sound corny, it is true a
Christmas tree brings a warm
feeling to the house, remind-
ing you of the special season
whenever you see it. This year,
unfortunately, that warmth
has been placed in the coldest
room in the house our back
room. It is the room we use
the least because it is poorly
constructed and has trouble
maintaining heat and air con-
ditioning.
We had to put the tree in
this little-used room, however,
because Ben is a terror and
is intent on destroying every
Christmas tree he sees, grab-
bing the Christmas balls and
tossing them across the room
while yelling, "Basketball" and
pulling every ornament off
the tree and shoving it in his
mouth while yelling, "Cookie!"
It's obnoxious. Rather than
fighting him 24/7, we decided
to hide the tree in a room he
Ever goes in. But it is also a
room we rarely go in. Thus, we
never see our tree.
The tree is not the only
Christmas ornament we are
lacking this year. We cannot
hang the stockings because
he will grab them from their
ledge. If we tried to hang them
out of his reach, he would find
something on which to climb,
pushing a box clear across
the house if needed. Christ-
mas cards placed so high
on a shelf they are impossible
to see. Christmas books we
put them on an end table but
the threat of him tearing them
forced me to hide them in a
drawer. The only Christmassy
items prominently on display
in our home are those stuffed


animals that play Christmas
music. And, in a way, Ben has
even ruined them. He spends
the entire day pushing the
play button on one at a time,
dancing with joy as my eye
twitch grows worse. As I write
this, I believe I have heard a
stuffed dog sing Jingle Bells
one billion times. It is so an-
noying that even the Christ-
mas ghosts cannot blame mei
for hating them.
While it is a drag to have
such an un-festive home, the
saving grace for our family
has been that we are head-
ing up north for Christmas.
(Yes, I am flying to New Jersey
with THREE young kids, one
of whom will be on my lap the
entire time The Grinch him-
self, Ben. The flight, however,
will surely be a column for
next week, so 1 will skip ahead
for now.)
My parents' house may be
the most festive in the world
sans Santa Claus'. I won't
bore you with too many de-
tails. The only one I need to
mention for the extent of their
decorating to hit home is that
my mother places a Christ-
mas tree in every room in the
house that does not have a
toilet! Some of the trees are
big, some are small, some are
extravagantly decorated and
some just have lights, but ev-
ery room has a tree nontct he-
less.
There is no way the Christ-
mas spirit cannot consume
you in my parents' house. I
have been ultra-excited to see
the older kids' expressions
when they walk into New
Jersey's version of The North
Pole. The youngest, however

This comparatively mo-
lasses-paced time between
Christmas and the new year
may be a good point to reflect
on holidays past and present -
and particularly, the first one
of the year, New Year's Day.
When many of us were
kids, New Year's was a sec-
ond Christmas: it often was
spent with whatever side of
the family hadn't been favored
with our childish presence at
Christmas. Black-eyed peas
and pork were the focus of the
meal in the South, while up
North, the turkey or ham that
had missed out as the star of
Christmas dinner became the
choice for the lesser holiday.
Visiting with family and
friends was the point of the
day. Indeed, a number of
European ethnic groups and
their American descendants
- especially Scots explicitly
set aside New Year's Day for
paying calls. With servants
to help, families held "open
house" all day. People bun-
dled up against the cold and
went out early, intending to
stop at a dozen or more homes
and enjoy a bit of refreshment
at each.
Things have changed, and
instead of walking and talking
through our neighborhoods,
many of us cocoon in front of
the television and watch hour
after hour of football. Others
will jam mall parking lots on
January 1, with most shop-
pers having no real imperative
to do so. Chances are that
men are doing one of these ac-
tivities, while women are do-
ing the other. What children
do is disconnected from any
adult activity.
Thinking back to my owni


youth, the recollections are
very different. The notion of
open stores on New Year's
Day would have been incon-
ceivable and if they had
been, my mother and her sis-
ters would have considered
it a sacrilege to go shopping
on a holiday. While some of
the uncles might have had a
TV or radio with a ballgame
running in the background, it
was more likely that they were
outside tossing a ball around
or helping a kid set off a fire-
cracker in celebration of the
new year.
That, I think, was typi-
cal. Even after most house-
holds had television, New
Year's Day was far less domi-
nated by football. Football-
widow shopping was virtually
unknown, as shown by an
analysis of advertising in the
Tampa Tribune on January
1, 1964. The holiday fell on
a Wednesday that year, but
despite this mid-week place-
ment, only four stores said
that they would be open. One
of these, Showcase Interiors
in Sulphur Springs, justi-
fied its unconventionality by
calling their 9 to 5 hours an
"Open House Party."
Stores aimed at Tampa's
more affluent were unani-
mously closed. Prestigious
Falk's, "the store with a pur-
pose," urged customers to
"Start the New Year with Won-
derful Price Reductions" but
on January 2, not the first.
Self Service Shoes, with flats
at $ 1, was one of the few open
stores, but Falk's shoe depart-
ment, with nothing lower than
$6.88, began its sale the fol-
lowing day.
J.C. Penney's, which had


stores at Britton Plaza in
South Tampa and Northgate
Shopping Center near Florida
and Busch avenues, adver-
tised a "Giant White Goods
Sale" for the next day (mat-
tress pads for $2.66). Maas
Brothers ("Tampa's Great
Store), with locations down-
town, as well as at Britton and
Northgate, spelled out clearly
that its locations were "closed
today" and urged customers
to "shop tomorrow."
There were no malls in
Tampa in 1964, and indeed
most Americans were un-
familiar with the concept of
an enclosed shopping mall,
which was just beginning in
the Northeast. Nor did the
Super Bowl yet exist.
The Tribune did not have a
separate sports section, and
the three pages of sports in
the January 1 edition was
much more diverse than to-
day.
Football was mentioned,
but other stories reported on
fishing, hunting. jai alai, judo.,
tennis, track, wrestling, hock-
ey, basketball, and the racing
of both horses and dogs.
Stories on football had a
Florida focus and virtually all
of the attention was on col-
lege, not professional, games.
Even that coverage was in-
dicative of much less public
interest in football than today:
Jacksonville mayor (later gov-
ernor) Haydon Burns candidly
said that his city's Gator Bowl
was "unsanitary and unsafe."
The paper listed four bowl
games for New Year's Day -
but importantly, three of the
four ran in the same time slot.
In an era prior to home re-

Initial Thoughts


As a child, I was known as
Eugene by far more people
than knew me as Gene. I was
named after my grandfather,
who was also Eugene Siudut.
I really don't remember, when
the name Gene came into
play, but almost everyone, in-
cluding my parents, calls me
Gene, now.
I remember having a dis-
like for my name as a youth.
It sounded so nerdy, but as
someone who has a deep re-
spect for his grandfather's
contributions to this world
and his family, I see the name
as an honor and don't mind
being called by my full name.
I bring this up because
when I was a much younger
lad than I am now, there was a
Christmas when my father did
most of the wrapping of pres-
ents. We knew it was my fa-
ther because he used newspa-
per to wrap the gifts, whereas
my mother surely would have
used wrapping paper.
In order to distinguish the
gifts, my father wrote initials
on the newspaper wrapping.
"RS" for my sister, Rose; "AS"
for my brother, Anthony; and
"ES" for yours truly.
In our house, the tradition
was not to wait for everyone
to wake up and open presents
together.
It was a mad dash as soon
as the sun came up for three
little children to rip open ev-
erything as quickly as they
could. We played with our toys


(continued from page 11)
No one will ever see that gun
again."
AFTERMATH
Tampa General Hospital
was filled with press, police
and friends of Lawrence.
The chief of police emptied
the files of back information
he had on Larry. "Hell, he
ain't dead yet! I think he'll
make it, we don't have a
shooter. Looks like a random
- hunter. We're combing the
woods. What do you say, Ga-
tor?" But Libby's blood was
boiling.
She wanted Scarface to
move into her house in full
view of all their neighbors.
She declared she was mar-
rying Scarface. THAT was a
slap in the face for Lawrence.
That lowlife would now be liv-
ing daily in charge of her two
darling girls. Moreover, they
were calling him Daddy! Oh
Lord what a disgrace
All of this stew was brewing
up and it spelled violence. Of
course, that was just what
Libby wanted..
She hatched a plot to catch
Lawrence in the middle of his
afternoon frolic. No one would
blame her! Not Libby of the
Columbia.
On the Libby front, Libby
started acting up. She wanted
more of the rough love of
Scarface. Scarface was mar-
ried. If she were to take on
Scarface as a permanent
party, Scarface had to do
something about his wife. As
arrangements happened in
Ybor City, Scarface had a soft
spot for his old fat wife.
Scarface had been married
for 20 years. Besides, he liked
the sweet old girl. He flat re-
fused to kill her. However, he
would stay out of the way get
separated. She got the house,


and occasionally would run
upstairs to ourt pm-ients' bed
room to show them what we
got, as if they w\veren't aware.
As the high I'roin receiving
presents died down, I noticed
a groilup of presents right next
to mine marked with the same
"ES".
Hot Dog! More presents for
me. My jealous brother and
sister couldn't believe that I
got more than they did, but
I was the oldest and maybe
more gifts came with age aind
maturity.
I tore open the first of the
new bunch. I couldn't be-
lieve what was underneath. A
brand new, beautiful ceramic
clock. What?!? That's not a
gift for a young man. I went to
the next package.
Upon opening I was in
shock and exclaimed, "Tow-
els?!?"
My brother and sister gig-
gled, but their snickers were
quickly silenced as my father
bellowed down from upstairs,
"Those aren't for you!"
How could this be? My ini-
tials were....OH, NO!
How could I forget that
my mother, Elaine, also was
"ES"?
I don't remember the after-
math, but it has been a family
joke ever since.
Fast-forward to this year.
I spoke to my brother on the
phone about what he and his
wife wanted for Christmas. He
made some kind of Amazon.


the same sum of money as
before, and banking rights.
She would tell people that
they were separated, and he
was going to marry ol' Scarlet t
O'Hara of the Columbia.
For a long while, the status
existed. Lawrence's long suf-
fering mother, Gloria, contin-
ued to give daily nursing care.
She lived in his bed room,
and was the only person he
would allow to clean him, and
bathe him. "I did it when he
was born. What is the differ-
ence now?" she would say.
He would look at the window
at the birds. When it came
time to hooker-up he rang up
Casey, and they would take a
trip.
Finally, one day, Casey got
an idea. They had bought a
lot of Piney-wood lots to sell
when the yard and-lumber
people grew out, which it had.
He bought a choice place
by the river and built the
hideaway. They would drop
off Lawrence at 5 o'clock
and pick him up next morn-
ing. One day a choice Cuban
mulata was dropped off, and
Lawrence took a fancy to her
and kept her for a week. Soon
it was a permanent thing. He
put her on retainer. She was
part of Lawrence's team.
THE RIDE OUT
Well, stories with tliotl
much hell in it usually affecL
a whole lot of people, but tIhe
Columbia was a solid busi-
ness. It withstood the shame.
It was lucky that good for
nothing Cesar, buckled his
pants on tight, dug in and
tried to run the great restau-
rant. Casimiro, weakened by
the embarrassment to his
family, suffered several heart
attacks and a stroke. He
couldn't hold out. He simply
died. When he died, the Co-


coin wish list, but I wasn't go-
ing to use an online wish list
to decide on a gift. It felt im-
persoiinal to inc. Ilt asked nme
what nmy girlfriend wanted, to
which I gave him some ideas.
He let me know that a lot
of thought went into the gift
he got me this year. The previ-
ous year he gave me a Chica-
go Bears jersey, so I was sure
that this would be something
pretty good.
I revie('wed my purchases
and thought that perhaps 1

I know Christmas isn't
a contest to make sure you
spend equal amounts, but he.
was going to be moving into a
new house, so I made sure to
add in a gift card for buying
some new household items in
addition to his gifts.
My girlfriend and I have
made a tradition of opening
one gift on Christmas Eve, to
hold us over to the next day,
so we decided to open my
brother's gift. My girlfriend got
exactly what I told my brother
to get. For nme, it was a soft
package.
Was it another jersey?
Maybe a Mets jersey this time.
No, it wasn't a jersey. It was
towels.
Towels.
While I did get a good laugh
out of it. I would be remiss if I
didn't have a statement on the
matter.
And I quote, "This won't be
forgotten. Anthony."


lumbia was still the number
one restaurant in Tampa, so
he died sort of happy. Adela
had two strapping boys. One
resembled Casimiro, and Ad-
ela wisely named him Casi-
miro. The other boy was the
apple of his father's eye.
He was pretty. Cesar held
him up to the light "!BONITO!
Como el Padre. Ill call him Ce-
sar! Cesar the Second!"
"No you won't! One Cesar
in this family is enough. This
one well call Richard!" And
we'll hope he turns out well!"
Things ran in compart-
ments. The maitre'd was a
buffoon left over from Law-
rence's political patronage
days.
The man had been a meat
inspector, and Lawrence en-
sured his restaurant always
passed inspection, when the
war came and large crowds
famed the rooms, a man to
manage the door was need-
ed. He had to be a good bull
sh**ter! And he had to have
a loud voice! The Inspector,
Pepin, was his name. Law-
rence took him downtown
to Wolff Brothers, and said,
"I want this guy to look like
money. Serious money."
To the considerable sur-
prise of the waiters, he cleaned
up big time. He could "KINDA"
speak IEnglish. Bro, I am Ybor
City Englishl. 11c was charm-
inlg and he liad an alarming
nimemory for names. He had
a loud voice. lc would spot
a good customer "Ahhh ----
altil--- Mecester Donahue!
"H low many are you? You
arc three couples. I'll put you
next to the band; You know
your wives love to see Cesar
play."
He pocketed $20 for that.
The waiters seethed.
To be continued next week.

Cotton, and Orange Bowls, all
of which ran at 1:45. WFLA
carried the Sugar Bowl and
WTVT the Cotton Bowl, while
the Orange Bowl was broad-
cast on WSUN Radio and UHF
television, the obscure Chan-
nel 38. Nor were there any re-
mote controls to help manage
this simultaneous action.
The only game that re-
ceived singular attention was
the Rose Bowl, which aired at
4:45 or 1:45 in its California
time zone. Perhaps it was this
exceptional time slot that mo-
tivated WFLA to buy the only
Tribune ad for a ballgame: the
quarter-page ad lauded the
Rose Bowl's "50th edition of a
football classic." WFLA listed
its radio dial location first,
however, and the fact that the
game would be broadcast on


-I


TV in color was secondary.
Although most families had a
TV in 1964. it was likely to be
black-and-white, not color.
When the Rose Bowl was
over at 7:45, there would be
no more football not that
evening, nor the next Satur-
day, nor the next Sunday, and
certainly not Monday night.
These habits are new. Our
fathers did not spend four or
more nights a week preoccu-
pied with football, nor did our
mothers take credit cards to
the malls on Sundays.
Maybe both forms of adult
liberation were overdue but
maybe not. In any case, these
are significant social changes
that should be noted in our
debates over juveniles gone
wrong.
While their parents cheered
the TV or walked the malls in
the 1980s and 1990s, what
were the kids doing?

The Baby Who
(continued from page 17)
lowing her antxiety so ass not to
upset the kids. I am sure my
father will chase Ben around
all day to try aind corral him,
only to collapse at the end of
each day from utter exhaus-
tion all while swearing that
Ben is not bad, but cute, and
that all kids are that difficult
even though I have yet to meet
another in the world who is.
And I am sure Ben will make
his siblings cry by getting into
their presents. However, none
of these tops my list of fears
of reasons how Ben could de-
stroy Christmas. Number one
on that list is that I am afraid
Ben will, through no fault of
his own, be an attention hog.
Babies always get the most
attention. There is no way
around that. To everyone
but the parents who have to
deal with the hell that comes
with them, everything babies
do is cute. Throw in the fact
that most of my relatives have
never met Ben, and there is
no way he is not the center of
attention. Most of my relatives
have never met my other chil-
cdren as well but, again, Ben is
a baby. He takes precedence
when cooing over kids.
Way back before Ben was
born, I wrote a column that
one of the toughest aspects of
our family will be that one of
the children is my blood child
and the other two are not.
I do not want animosity to
form over the false belief that
Ben is more loved by me than
them. While part of me is wor-
ried that they may think that
about all my relatives as well.
most of me knows that is lu-
dicrous at this time they are
still too young to think about
such things. But I am wor-


Stole Christmas
ried that they will feel left out
if they do not receive proper
attention. I am worried if that
happens, they shy away from
showing my relatives love.
This trip is very important
to me. I want Amy and the kids
to feel close to my family up
north. I want them to look at
them as family. They know my
parents and my brother, but
they have only met my sister
and oldest nephew once and
have never met my aunts, un-
cles, cousins, brother-in-law
or youngest nephew. I don't
like this disconnect. I don't
like the feeling that I have two
families one in Tampa and
one in New Jersey. I want ev-
eryone to get along so perfect-
ly that my northern relatives
will want to travel to Tampa
to see us regularly and vice
versa.
But if the older kids don't
feel loved ... if everyone doesn't
click ... if Ben steals too much
thunder and they feel resent-
ment ... then what? I know I
can force them to spend time
with my relatives. I don't want
it to be forced, though. I want
them to crave the visits.
I guess before I tackle that
problem, first I need to sur-
vive the plane trip. Three kids.
One on my lap. I have a feel-
ing next week is going to be a
good column.

ARIES (March 21 to April
19): It's a good time for re-
unions with those very special
people from your past. You
could be pleasantly surprised
by what comes to light during
one of these get-togethers.
TAURUS (April 20 to May
20): The new year gets off to
an encouraging start for the
Bold Bovine who takes that
demanding workplace chal-
lenge by the horns and steers
it in the right direction.
GEMINI (May 21 to June
20): The clever Gemini will be
quick to spot the telltale signs
of workplace changes that
could open up new opportuni-
ties for the right person. (And
that's you, isn't it?)
CANCER (June 21 to July
22): The Moon Child's post-
holiday letdown soon lifts as
you begin to get back into your
comfortable routine. Someone
from your past extends a sur-
prise bid to reconnect.
LEO (July 23 to August 22):
You've been the ultimate so-
cial Lion over the holidays.
Now it's time to relax and
recharge your energy so you
can be at your best when you
pounce on that new project.
VIRGO (August 23 to Sep-
tember 22): A relationship
could be moving in a direction
you might not want to follow.
Step back for a better overview
of the situation. You might be
surprised at what you see.
LIBRA (September 23 to Oc-
tober 22): Emotions rule at


the start of the week, affect-
ing your perception about a
decision. Best advice: Avoid
commitments until that good
Libran sense kicks back in.
SCORPIO (October 23 to
November 21): A longtime
friendship could take a ro-
mantic turn early in the new
year. While this pleases your
passionate side, your logical
self might want to go slow.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22
to December 21): Someone
might make a surprising dis-
closure about a Itrusted ftriendC
or workplace colleague. Stayv
cool and reserve judgment
until y'ou get more facts.
CAPRICORN (December 22
to January 19): You might
think you've found what
you've been looking for. But
appearances can be deceiving.
Don't act on your discovery
until you know more about it.
AQUARIUS (January 20
to February 18): You're no
doubt anxious for that con-
fusing situation to be cleared
up. But don't press for a quick
resolution or you might over-
look some vital facts.
PISCES (February 19 to
March 20): Now that your hol-
iday distractions are easing.
vou need to apply yourself to
getting those unfinished tasks
done so ou can begin a new
project with a clean slate.
BORN THIS WEEK: People
respect both \our wisdom and
your deep sense of lo\,yalty andi
compaissiolln.
