POR VICTOR SISA
Los Bucaneros por fin triunfan
Despues de semanas de constantes derrotas, los Bucaneros
de Tampa Bay lograron cerrar la temporada con un triunfo.
Veneer a los Falcones de Atlanta en su propio terreno es dig-
no de admiraci6n, a pesar de que el resultado del enfrenta-
miento no tenia repercusi6n para los de Atlanta. Si bien, es
una mejoria para los de Tampa despues de haber sido barri-
dos por los Santos de New Orleans y los Rams de San Louis.
Los Bucaneros en general jugaron un buen partido por pri-
mera vez en largo tiempo. El aspect defensive fue destacado por
parte de los Bucaneros. Josh Freeman tuvo un excelentc parti-
do, mientras Doug Martin acumul6 142 yards y un touchdown.

Una tarde oscura, los

con el pueblo vecino por un
territorio que ambos clama-

rrotas y victorias, sangre y
celebraciones, como en cada
fatidica guerra.
Parte del territorio perdi-

arrebataba a la muchacha un

Deambulaba noche tras
noche entire la frondosa jun-

centinclas se quedaran dor-
midos y pufff, se subia al
arbol y abrazaba sus ramas
hasta que el sol expandia sus
rayos.
Mientras escribia, recibi

EE.UU.: El afio fiscal 2012 cierra con

409,849 deportaciones


Las deportaciones anuales en Estados Unidos se han incrementado significativamente


Los datos divulgados por
la Oficina de Inmigraci6n y
Aduanas de Estados Unidos
(ICE, por sus siglas en ingles)
indican que Washington ha
expulsado a 409.849 personas
durante el afios fiscal 2012.
El informed muestra ademas
que en el aflo fiscal 2011,
EE.UU. deport6 a 396.906
personas y en 2010 a mas de
392.000, de las cuales el 55
por ciento fueron declaradas
culpables de delitos graves o
delitos menores, cifras que al-
canzan un nfimero record de
deportaciones realizadas bajo
la administraci6n del presi-


dente Barack Obama.
Sin embargo, el congre-
sista dem6crata Luis Guti&r-
rez denuncia que entire los
inmigrantes deportados de
EE.UU., cada afio, hay cientos
de miles de personas "que son
beneficiosos para las comu-
nidades v que no cometieron
crime alguno".
Barack Obama anunci6o en
su primera rueda de prensa
despues del triunbf electoral
que la propuesta de ley sobre
una reform migratoria in-
tegral estaria en el Congreso
poco despues de su toma de
posesion el 20 de enero.


Cabe destacar que, en
noviembre, activists de
la comunidad hispana en
Washington criticaron severa-
mente lo que tacharon como
una profundaa hipocresia" del
banco Wells Fargo, que busca
una mayor cuota del mercado
hispano en EE.UU. pero se
"lucra" al invertir en compa-
nias de eXrceles privadas para
los inmigrantes.
En el interin, los latinos es-
tan atentos, aguardando a que
se materialicen las promesas
con acciones concretas.
Estamos a la espera, senior
President.

Pese al ferreo bloqueo economi-

una de las regions mas conser-

mas de 10 aflos un important

En 1999, bajo la presidencia

las autoridades dc Virginia
decidieron penetrar cl iner-

jPorque los elefantes
tienen una fina capa de
vellos?
Los cientificos empie-
zan a entender por que los
elefantes tienen una capa
fina de vello corporal, en
vez del grueso pelaje de la
mayoria de los mamiferos:
el gran volume corporal
de los elefantes (un pro-
medio de 5,5 toneladas,
en el caso de los machos
hasta 2,7 toneladas, en el de
las hembras), hace que les sea
dificil mantenerse frescos, so-
bre todo en el calor intense del
continent africano. La esca-
sez de vello les ayuda a regular
su temperature; mejora en al
menos un 5% su capacidad de
refrescarse, y hasta en un 20%

es baja, es decir, cuando mas
lo necesitan, segfin un studio
publicado en PLoS One, en oc-
tubre.

lamentables acontecimientos.
Pero, el temna del deficit serad
un tema que taocara los bolsillos
de muchos, veremos a quien le
achacan esa carga tan pesada
a sus espaldas, claro es faicil
de adivinar, el hilo siempre
revienta por lo mas delgado.
Dicen que se incrementara la
tasa impositiva a quienes mas
ganan y no se recortara el gasto
en las partidas que benefician a
los mds necesitados, por ejem-
plo en salud. Tambien dicen,
que la condition no es aumen-
tar impuestos, pero si recortar
el gasto en aquellas partidas
que hay\' un mayor deficit, per
ejemplo, en el plan de salud.
Extrafa forma de referirse a
un possible acuerdo. ePor que
no recortan en gastos militares,
por ejemplo?
La pretension de los conser-
%vadores al hablar de precipicio
fiscal es reducir impuestos
como media para restringir el
gasto del gobierno y su peso en
la conduccion de la economic,
lo que no es nada nuevo. Recor-


demos que durante today la cam-
pafia de reelecci6n de Obama,
prometi6 aumentar impuestos
a quienes mas ganan, suprimir
subsidies como media para
reducir el deficit, fortalecer
el gasto social e invertir mas
para promover cl empleo. Sin
embargo, con cstas medidas,
llarnan a Obama, que tiene


medidas socialists.
El problema con estas pro-
puestas es que el crecimiento
del deficit pfiblico estadoun-
idense no ha sido debido a un
excesivo aumento del gasto pu-
blico social, sino al contrario, ha
surgido como consecuencia de
un descenso muy marcado de
los ingresos al Estado, debido al
gasto pfiblico military, necesario
para sostener dos guerras a la
vez, una en Irak y la otra en
Afganistan, Libia, Siria, etc.
Ha sido una political de
Obama disminuir dicho gas-
to military en tales guerras y
revertir los recortes de impues-
tos a las rentas superiores. El
hecho de que el Presupuesto
General tenga que ser aprobado
por el Congreso de EE.UU.,
hoy controlado por el Partido
Republican, ha dificultado,
cuando no imposibilitado, el
desarrollo de otras propuestas
que el president Obama ha
planteado, que podrian haber
tenido gran impact en es-
timular la economic. Entre ellas


estfn sus propuestas de au-
mentar el salario minimo. Otra
propuesta de la administraci6n
Obama vetada por el Congreso
Republican fue la de crear un
banco pfiblico que garantizara
credits para inversiones en la
decadente infraestructura del
pais, declive que quedo claro en
el enorme destrozo causado por
el huracan Sandy en
"' la costa Este del pais.
La isla de Manhattan
fue un cjemplo de ello.

l crn Estados Unidos
' esta muy deterio-
Srada, resultado del
,escaso interven-
cionismo putblico que
ha caracterizado al

resultado de la
revoluci6n neoliberal.
Deberia quedar
claro que la permisividad hacia
las prioridades del mundo em-
presarial y, muy en especial del
financiero, han sido los respon-
sables de la crisis financiera. El
capitalism de casino, basado
en la especulaci6n financiera,
que separaba los bancos com-
erciales de los de inversiones y,
esto, ha sido una de las causes
de tal crisis.
Otra propuesta vetada por
el Congress, fue la ayuda fi-
nanciera a los Estados para
mantener el empleo pufblico,
predominantemente en ense-
fianza, en policies locales y en
bombers. En su primer aflo,
cuando el Partido Dem6crata
controlaba el Congreso, el presi-
dente Obama implement un
estimulo economic de mas de
750.000 millones de d61lares
dado a los bancos para las areas
sociales, responsible de que

Cientos de muertes por armas de fuego en Fin de la dispute presupuestaria


Por Manuela 0. Ball
Desde la matanza en la
escuela Sandy Hook de Con-
necticut, que capture la aten-
ci6n mundial, mas de 330
personas han muerto a balazos
en Estados Unidos donde se ha
acelerado la venta de armas de
fuego.
Los informes de las autori-
dades, los diaries, las estacio-
nes de radio y television locales
indican que, entire el 14 de
diciembre -incluido el
ataque en Connecticut-
v el 29 de diciembre,
la lista de tragedies
sigue en aumento: por
lo menos 321 personas
murieron en todo el
pais por heridas causa-
das con armas de fuego.
Mientras tanto,
el delirante primer-
comunicado official pro-
nunciado por Wayne
LaPierre, director
general y vicepresidente
de' la NRA (National El mime
Rifle Association), una
semana despues de Y la den
la tragedia de Newton (14 de
diciembre), fue un verdadero
oprobio. Tuvo el descaro de cul-
par a "las sangrientas pelicu-
las" y a "los videojuegos" del
problema creciente de violencia
con armas en Estados Unidos,.
calificando a Hollywood como
"maestros corporativos" en la
creaci6n de peliculas violen-
tas. En palabras del cineasta
Michael Moore, la conferencia
de prensa fue "la mas pertur-
badora y delusiva que he visto
-jamas".I
Si bien la cultural de violen-
cia de Estados Unidos es una
realidad, LaPierre se enfoco en
apuntar con los dedos a todos
menos en aceptar la respon-
sabilidad de la asociacion que
represent, asi como proponer
las ideas mais desquiciadas
en respuesta a la massacre: la
protection armada de todos
los colegios en EE. UU., la
utilizacidn de armas para los
docentes y mochilas blindadas
para los estudiantes. Es decir,
que en lugar de la adopcion de
medidas mas estrictas para el


control de armas de fuego o
una legislaci6n que proteja a
sus ciudadanos, este individuo
propones imas armas!
La influencia de la NRA no
puede desestimarime: segOln ci-
fras de CNN Mloney proveniicn-
tes de Wedbush Securities per
el analista Rommel Dionisio -,
del 17 de diciembre, el ingreso
de esta organization super los

No es una iinovecdad
que se mregistre un as-

En Colorado, la venta

senta istrado en Lin cine de la
umenta ciudad de Denver. En
Arizona, se incremental en un

Newtown, la subida de la de-
manda fue de al menos 25"o en
las tiendas de armas de Con-
necticut v Carolina del Norte.

ni~ri~F,

















I used to love flying. There
was nothing I found more re-
laxing. For a few hours, no one
could bother me via phone,
email, knock on door, etc. It
was the only time I had peace
and quiet. I used to sleep so
soundly on an airplane that
I once fell asleep the moment
we boarded and when I woke
upon landing was unaware
that we spent two hours on the
runway before we took off.
Boy, I loved flying. Then ...
then I had kids.
On December 24, 2012, on
one of the busiest travel days
of the year, Amy and I packed
three kids, five suitcases and
a billion digital devices and
headed to New Jersey, my first
trip back home in three years.
The trip lived up to the hype of
flying with kids.
The day could not have
started off better, however.
The kids all woke on time, got
dressed and their shoes on in
record time. We didn't hit any
traffic. We found a parking
spot right next to the elevator.
We cruised through the se-
curity check; they didn't even
make the kids take off their
shoes. The flight was "over-
crowded" so the airline offered
to check carry-on bags at no
cost, freeing Amy and I of four
carry-on bags, one for each
person with a seat. And when
we boarded the plane, the seat
next to me was empty, a ma-
jor score considering I drew
the short straw and had Ben
on my lap. (By short straw, I
mean that whenever a difficult
situation arises with Ben, Amy
exclaims that she has been
through that particular situa-
tion with two kids already so it
is my turn. I hate her reason-
ing.)
When a young man took
the remaining seat in my row
and earnestly smiled at Ben
as though he liked kids and


did not mind sitting near one
that would obviously scream
at some point, I turned to Amy
who was with the other two
kids in the row next to mine
and said, "This is going way to
easy, right?"
Why the hell did I say sl ch
a thing?! Haven't I watched
enough sitcomis to know that
such a statement is always fol-
lowed by zaniness? From that
moment on, my life was hell.
Ben never sits still ... NEV-
ER! Whenever I have declared
such over the course of Ben's
life, everyone has always
smiled and said, "Every boy is
like that" as though l aml exag-
gerating Ben's Energizer Bun-
ny attributes. BUT, everyone
who has ever babysat Ben has
admitted that that they have
never been more worn out by
one child in their life. Even the
daycare workers at the YMCA
say Ben is their devil child:
they say it with love, but they
mean it. They watch hundreds
of brats a week and admit that
Ben is the most intense they
take care oil
So you can imagine what
happens to such a boy when
he is asked to sit on his dad's
lap and not move a muscle for
150 minutes ... God help us
all!
He w as a terror!
He squirmed. He kicked.
He tried to head butt me. He
pinched. When he realized I
would not let him go no matter
what he did to me physically.
he declared mental warfare.
He let out the most terrify-
ing scream mankind has ever
heard. It sounded like a Ptero-
dactyl having sex with a steam
pipe. The plane shook. Win-
dows threatened to shatter.
Every non-parent on the plane
covered their ears and shot
dirty glances at the "badc father
who cannot control his kid."

The Guzzo's Christmas

Vacation Part I


Some author I don't re-
member who memorably ex-
plained that "writing is easy.
All you have to do is slit a vein
and let your blood pour out on
the paper."
1 don't follow this formula
and rarely write anything emo-
tional or even personal, but
this will be an exception. I've
just returned from almost two
weeks up north to find that not
just one, but two, dear friends
died while I was gone.
Everyone knows about Bill
McBride. We discovered the
tragic news on the morning
of Christmas Eve, when my
husband checked his phone
and found a message from a
reporter who had asked for a
quote.
After absorbing the shock,
I recalled my first memory
of Bill. It was at the home of
Judge Don Evans, whose wife
Sandy was active in Women's
Political Caucus. I was a char-
ter member back in Massa-
chusetts in the early 1970s,
and at the time of Bill's ar-
rival in Tampa a decade later,
young Pam lorio was caucus
president.
We were transitioning our
local group from a women's
organization to a gIender-nelu-
tral1 one because thle national
body would not allow us to
give PAC money to men. Our
biggest goal was ratification of
the Equal Rights Amendment,
and we decided that it was il-
logical to expect a positive vote
from a nearly all-male legisla-
ture if we couldn't influence
the majority of races. We took
ourselves out of NWPC and
formed Hillsborough Political
Caucus and Bill was one of
the tfirstl men to join.
I met Alex Sink in 1986.
while she still was based in
Miami. via Betty Castor's cam-
paign for Education Commis-
sioner. The bonds between
our families grew stronger af-
ter Bert and Lexi were born
to Alex and Bill. They moved
to Thonotosassa, where they
could replicate at least some of
the rural life they had known
in their vouth.
We live in the same once-
rural neighborhood and re-
sponded to their questions
about Armwood High School,
the local public institution.
Our daughter had gone from
there to Harvard, and their
family saw this as an example
of how kids can thrive aca-
demically even though some
of their peers live in poverty.
Now Bert and Lexi are on solid
career paths in law and medi-
cine, and we continue to be-
lieve that public schools are
the best preparation for life in
a democracy.
The four of us Bill and
Alex, my husband and I -
went together to Gainesville
to watch Bert play in the foot-


ball game that won the state
championship for Armwood.
We saw the two of them work
the concession stand in Seff-
ner, even while they were run-
ning for statewide office.
A true feminist, Bill sup-
ported Alex in her successful
run for CFO and she remem-
bered on the day of that elec-
tion to leave her house un-
locked because my Girl Scouts
planned to meet there (in lieu
of the Thonotosassa Library,
which was a polling place).
Of all the accolades that Bill
McBride and Alex Sink merit,
none is more important than
their constantly demonstrat-
ed devotion to children and
youth.
I wrote earlier of my first
memory of Bill; the last that
I recall is a happy one on No-
vember 8, when President
Obama was reelected. Bill and
Alex were the first people we
saw as we entered Kathy Cas-
tor's victory party. Bill gave
both of us one of his big bear
hugs, which I shall always re-
member and treasure. That
will be his permanent picture
in my mind.
So we decided on Christmas
Eve that Bill would want us to
put family first and continue
the plans we had made with
our family in the Washington
area. It therefore was an even
greater shock to come home
on the 29th and discover that
Roberta Golding had died two
days before Bill. Although
she was 91 not 67, like Bill
- Roberta still was vital, and I
expected to continue to enjoy
our visits.
She was one of the first
people I met when we came to
USF in 1972. 1 had walked in
the snow for George McGovern
in the March primary in Mas-
sachusetts, but by the time we
moved here in August, it was
clear that he could not pre-
vail against the dirty tricks of
Richard Nixon's henchmen,
which they arrogantly called
CREEP (Committee to Re-
elect the President). I glanced
around the pathetic McGovern
headquarters in Tampa and
decided not to waste my time -
but Roberta hung in, and his-
tory proved that she backed
the righteous man.
She never shied away from
a lost cause or from contro-
versy. Roberta organized
fundraisers for Cesar Chavez
and his Hispanic farmwork-
ers: she ran a full-page ad in
the Tribune to support Presi-
dent Clinton; she gave gener-
ously to Planned Parenthood,
recently paying for part of its
new Temple Terrace facility.
Although Jewish to the
core, she nevertheless reached
out to Nahla Al-Arian when
Nahla's husband Sami was
being persecuted by the Bush
administration. Ever eager to

learn, Roberta asked Nahla for
details about Islam over lunch
at Roberta's home. They
bonded with peaceful sister-
hood.
Last summer, Roberta
was the first supporter for
the billboard that I created
to welcome visitors to the Re-
publican convention and to
inform them that Tampa has
a completely Democratic gov-
ernment. But although Ro-
berta was firm in her beliefs,
she also was modest and ea-
ger to please. I guess it's okay
now to reveal that she wanted
me to hide her involvement
from her Republican accoun-
tant. She wrote the check
for the billboard to me per-
sonally, ostensibly to pay for
some writing that I had done
years earlier for her and Phyl-
lis Busasnsky. (Ah, Phyllis -
well just tuck you in the back
of our brain for now, okay?)
We held a celebration at
Roberta's home the day the
billboard went up. She had
her hair and nails done, wore
a gorgeous robe with long
pearls, and sat regally in her
wheelchair, oxygen at her
side. At that party, we discov-
ered that she and another 90+
billboard donor had attended
Florida College for Women at
the same time; they looked at
old yearbooks and reminisced
about life in Tallahassee dur-
ing World War II.
A few weeks later, Roberta
invited my husband and me
to join her at the Tampa Yacht
Club for dinner with her visit-
ing son and daughter-in-law:
she wanted to discuss chang-
ing gender roles, and especial-
lyv her son's academic research
on boyhood. In her favorite
corner of her home, sophis-
ticated books and magazines
were piled high. Even when
she was past 90, she watched
the often-obtuse TED lectures
on PBS and enjoyed talking
about their futurism. Roberta
had an avid mind, a wry sense
of humor, and a hopeful heart.
She added much to my life,
and I shall miss her.
In addition, on the day of
Bill's funeral, in snow and
sleet in Arkansas, they buried
my husband's last remain-
ing aunt. When we saw Aunt
Leola in September, she was a
proud member of the Red Hat
Society and seemed ready to
carry on for years.
Our East Hillsborough
Democratic Club also suffered
two losses close to Christmas.
Joy Newnam died too young,
and Jean Gottlieb, the mother
of recent legislative candidate
Gail Gottlieb, also passed
away.
All of this meant that it was
with great joy that I listened to
a kind message from Sydney
Potter. It's been a couple of
years now since we attended
Syd's 90th birthday party, but
he still writes thoughtful let-
ters to the editor.
He's probably won more of
Tiger Bay's Garfield Awards for
the best political question than
any other member. He and his
wife. Thalia, a former aide to
Jim Davis and Pat Frank, are
models of civic leadership.
They also have overcome
the sorrow of outliving two
of their three children. So,
1 want to thank you. Thalia
and Syd, for being an unfail-
ing source of inspiration. The
same to you, Bill and Roberta.
The radiance of your well-
lived lives will shine on.

Judge Sheehan for a six-week period.
The ferocity of the verbal attack and the
nature of the accusations are hard to align
with actions of Ms. Murray in Sheehan's
court. This appears to be the first and only
way Judge Sheehan dealt with her issue
with Ms. Murray. Murray's bosses were
never approached by the judge about her
concerns with Murray's work.
The judge didn't stop there. She issued
an order that recused herself from any
case that involves Kay Murray...
... Judge Sheehan was moved to Family
Court Division I by the Chief Judge in an
apparent effort to avoid cont act bet ween
Judge Sheehan and the P.I).'s office...

Republican Jeff Brandes, who wants
to represent South Tampa and Pinnellas
County, feat ured spent bullet cart ridges
on his mailer and his A+- rating from the
NRA. Spent. cartridges?
Hasn't this community seen enough
spent cartridges? Our police are targets,
our soldiers don't return froin Afghani-
stan, there's domestic violence and dead
kids. Haven't enough bullets been tired?'
Do.. .i, II l, il.I. -offer only empty brass?
...We were surprised to find in our
mail a hard-hitting postcard from Judge
Ann Ober against her opponent. John
Grant, 111.
The mailer lists several issues regard-
ing Grant: "Lied on his application for
the Thirteenth Judicial Court." "Arrested
for DUI three times," "Investigated for
'making obscene phone calls to a female
acquaintance.'" '"Struck the officer who
arrested him" and "Finished 116th out
of 124 in his class."
We're sure this race will attract at ten-
tion and scrutiny.
...MSNBC labeled Congresswomani
and former Republican president ial can-
didate Michele Bachmann, "Bat Crap
Crazy" for her misguided crusade to ex-
pose the deep penetration of the Muslim
Brotherhood in the U.S. government...

Jeff Vinik, owner of the Tampa Bay
Lightning, will move his home from Bos-

first time in 20 years that the Lightning-

West Tampa's Carmageddon is now

We have proudly joined the ranks of
grand-parenthood and could not be more
pleased. Lola Grace Manteiga Potter was

Erin, and son-in-law, David Potter...
TECO has listened to the Ybor City
community and reconsidered its plan to
relocate a transmission line to the north
side of Adamo Drive on the edge of the
Historic District...
...The mayor's office, the Ybor City
Development Corporation, a lot of Ybor
residents and businesses along with this
newspaper urged TECO to find another
solution to its problem of moving a needed
transmission line to make room for the
Selmon Expressway expansion...this is
the first time that we have seen TECO fa-
vorably respond to a community's wishes.
August 10
A section of Tampa Bay Boulevard
will be officially named Elvin Martinez
Boulevard after retired Judge Martinez...
Tampa's thin blue line will turn tan
for the Republican National Convention.
City of Tampa Police, Hillsborough County
Sheriffs and Florida Department of Law
Enforcement will all wear the same uni-
form in the Downtown/Ybor City area if
their duties are related to RNC crowd or
traffic control. While the uniforms will be
the same, the agency or department each
officer represents will be clearly labeled as
part of the outfit.

In endorsing U.S. Senator Bill Nel-
son last week, Charlie Crist came a step
closer to changing his party registration
to Democrat and running for that party's
nomination for governor in 2014.
This seems to be a part of Crist's meta-
morphosis from a Republican caterpillar to
a beautiful Democratic butterfly...
The primary results on Tuesday
mostly demonstrated that the few voters
who showed up were engaged and knowl-
edgeable. Their selections were wise.
Here are the results and how our predic-
tions fared.
We made 26 predictions in who would
win and the order candidates placed and
got 24 right. We made correct predictions


in all the Senate races. That's a .923 bat-
ting average.
Turnout was 15.83 percent, with 111,510
ballots cast. We predicted turnout to be
between 110,000 and 120,000, around 16
percent. The best voting precinct was 927
in the Sun City retirement community,
with a turnout of 40.62 percent. The poorest
turnout in a major precinct was 353, which
covers the University of South Iihlorida; of
1,286 registered voters, five voted, or .39
percent.
We don't have a llexact breakdown of
party t turnout, but can ext 'apolate an ap-
proximate number by looking at tilte U.S.
Senate races 52,-139 Republicans voted in
thi Senlate irace, which equals a 22 percent
tiurnotut. The Democ'ratic primary for U.S.
Senate atlra' ted l-4,2:11 voters that's a
15 percent t turnout. No party affiliated and
third-party voters turned oult at around
eight percent.

...IRyan's isa gilt that keeps on giving. He

...Women might also find Paul Ryan an
easy guy to hate. He co-sponsored legisla-
tion with Todd "Legitimate Rape" Akin
to categorize the severity of rape. Ryan
wanted to have "forcible" rape and just plain
rape, so hie could try to deny an abortion
to the plain rape victim. You know. that
college girl who gets slipped a 1rootie and is
abused whiile she's half-unconscious.
We hope he tells us, during the convetn-
tion. just how nany Vpuinches a rape victim
must sufler before it's forciblele"

Depending on whom you speak with,
the Republican National Convention's
financial impact to them was either great.
nonexistent or a big negative. Those are
individual views. The RNC. by any mea-
surenient, has had a large financial benefit
to the area as a whole. It improved Talmpa's
name recognition and that. in turn. will
help Tampa's prosperity in tlie fut ure.
Like any boom or bust. thie effect to tilhe
individual or a particular business is spotty.
Businesses that had contracts signed
before the convention did very well, includ-
ing caterers, venues, lighting and sound
companies, hotels, tent companies and a
host of others...
...Many businesses that were hoping for
walk-in traffic never saw four days worth
of crowded tables or aisles...
...This week was very profitable for
Tampa Bay, but as always, some were left
behind...
...So far. our favorite speech has been
by Condoleezza Rice. Her words regard-
ing the need for immigration to keep this
country great and her urging of engagement
around the world to make it better were
needed at the convention. At this time, she
has been the only kind voice on immigra-
tion and one of the most rational against
American isolationism...
September 7
...Mitt Romney performed the best he
could last Thursday. After drunken Uncle
Eastwood passed the microphone. Romney
at least seemed cognitive and coherent.
That was Romney's high-water mark in
likeability...
If Democrats need to embrace a win-
ner for Florida's gubernatorial race in 2014,
Charlie Crist isn't the most obvious choice,
but Alex Sink is.
If there were a rematch of Sink vs.
Scott today, it is easy to predict that Scott.
would lose. Sink fell short by just 61,550
votes. After the dismal performance by
Governor Rick Scott, it is obvious that well
over 61,550 voters, given the chance again,
would switch their vote...
September 14
We hear many of the people-to-people
travel licenses to Cuba that were issued
by the Office of Foreign Assets Control
(OFAC) under the loosened restrictions of
the Obama Administration are not being
renewed...
With little fanfare, the NFL and the
Buccaneers are paying for a change of
security. Instead of being subjected to pat
downs to get into the stadium for a football
game, the new procedure is to pass a metal
detection wand over a patron.
The NFL originally insisted that it
wanted that kind of a search over wand-
ing because the terrorist threat extended


to chle'icial weapons and human bombs. A
iimetal detector wouldn't catch these types
of weapolls.
Does the change in security mean the
NFL'sI war on terror is over? Mission ac-
coniplished!
September 21
The Hillsborough County Supervisor
of Elections will allow absentee voters to
cast their ballots at its four offices starting
Monday. This, in effect, will help make up
for the days of early voting cut out by the
I'egislature. It's a brilliant move by Super-
visor of Elections Earl lennard and his
deputy, 'Crig laititier. and shows a strong
commllllit llenlt to voters' rights...
Was that a baby hump on Mayor Bob
Buckhorn? If so, tt'e answer's out. On Tues-
iday, he admitted hlie was pregnant lie's
ca rrvinIg a st reetccar.
Thle mayor convinced the Port Authority
Ioard to continue its $100.000 contribution
to the streetcar system by saying. "We're
pregnant, fellas mand ladies: there's no going
back. Let's figure out how to make it work."
We received a complaint from a loyal
West Tampa Democrat that the Obama
campaign's local headquarters in Ybor was
rude and charging more than it costs two
people to i at lunch at a local Latin eatery
for a yard sign...
September 28
We were great ly disappointed that the
Tampa Tribune sent two Latins to Ybor to
soil the district's reputation.
The South Tampa-centric newspaper
threw the district this bone in its Sunday
front-page featured article about Ybor:
"It's not Tampa's most violent scene by any
st retch, but trouble always feels possible."
Well. since the kids have grown, tlihe
missus and I hang out in Ybor two or three
nights a week and trouble never seems to be
about to happen to us. The biggest problems
we incur are when the $10 lobsters run out
at James Joyce or we don't get our last order
in before the 7 p.m. deadline for $2 martinis
at Bernini or Carne.
Over 100 trees are missing in Ybor
City. Did the low water levels in the Hills-
borough River drive beavers to the National
Historic Landmark District, did the mayor
relocate our trees to a tony South Tampa
neighborhood or did the Occupy protesters
cut them down to build shelters?
No. Instead, it was the traditional enemy
of trees the Department of Parks and
Recreation...
October 5
The Wednesday night debate was won
by Mitt Romney. He was on the attack,
the president was on the defense. Romney
projected a plan and the president ineptly
tried to prove it unsound. The president
allowed Romney to set the tone, the pace
and the subject....
Democrats in Pinellas County are very
optimistic about the November election.
They anticipate gains in the legislative
delegation, county commission and school
board...
WEDU's Florida this Week, hosted
by Rob Lorei, will celebrate its 20th an-
niversary...

Sam Gibbons will always be my con-
gressnman. He will always be the high stan-
dard that I use to judge all others. Gibbons
passed away Wednesday.
A wari hero, a statesman, a fighter for the
poor, a protector of the old and infirmed, a
devoted father and husband, a true patriot
and a proud Democrat Sam Gibbons was
the greatest ptiblic servant this community
has produced...
The all-male editorial board of the
valued at less-than-$10 million Tampa


Tribune urges a "yes" vote on Amendment
6, which would put a prohibition on the
public funding of abortions in the Florida
Constitution and creates an exception to
the State Constitution's guaranteed right to
privacy when it comes to a female's health
care decision regarding abortion...
... The Orlando Sentinel. Miami Her-
ald. Palmn Beach Post, Gainesville Sun,
Tampa Bay Times and La Gaceta strongly
disagree with the Tampa Tribune. In fact,
we couldn't find a major Florida newspaper
that concurs with the discounted Tribune...
October 19
Casino kingpin Sheldon Adelson gave
$5 million to the 2012 Tampa Bay Host
Committee to help fund the Republican Na-
tional Convention according to the Tampa
Tribune. This probably isn't the last we'll
see of Adelson's money. We hear some local
Republicans are auditioning to be Adelson's
guy Friday in Florida to help him put on a
full-court press to land a casino in Miami.
Democrats are beating Republicans in
the number of absentee ballots being cast
in Hillsborough County. This is unusual.
since the Republicans have traditionally
dominated in voting absentee...
October 26
We know where we stand with Presi-
dent Barack Obama. He wants to make
our health care system accessible and af-
fordable to everyone. He wants women to
have the same rights to equal pay. health
care. choice and privacy as men. He wants a
smaller deficit, but not at the cost of further
hurting our recovering economy. He wants
to regulate businesses and business sys-
tems that take advantage of their size like
Wall Street.., banks and Big Oil. He wants to
preserve and protect Social Security, Medi-
care and Medicaid. Overseas, he wants an
America that walks softly and carries a big
stick. He has toned down the threats and
saber-rattling and instead acted decisively
with strength when needed. He has pulled
us out of one war and is close to disengag-
ing in another one. He has also cut the
investments in infrastructure of Iraq and
Afghanistan, moving those investments to
U.S. roads and bridges...
...La Gaceta proudly endorses Barack
Obama for a second term as President of
the United States.
November 2
The word around Ybor City after the
visit by President Barack Obama to Centen-
nial Park in the heart of the historic district
last Thursday is that one Obama morning is
better than four days of the RNC. Of course,
the reference is regarding economic impact.
Every restaurant was packed for lunch and
lunch started early. Small, private parking
lots made $1,000 at six in the morning. The
president attracted 9,000 fans who roamed
after the visit. The R.NC brought few visi-
tors who walked the district.
November 9
It was a great night for Democrats.
Nationally we held the presidency, in-
creased our lead in the Senate by two seats
and narrowed the Republican lead in the
House so far by three, but it looks like that
will likely grow to seven. Florida's congres-
sional delegation has 19 Republicans and
six Democrats. In January 2013, the num-
ber will change to 17 Republicans and 10
Democrats. We gained the two new seats
and took away two old ones...
...1 have to say listening to the Na-
tional Symphony Orchestra of Cuba at
the Mahaffey Theater moved me. Their
performances of "Malaguefia" and "Ante
El Escorial" were beautiful. They seemed

Before there was the cult of
David Petreaus, there was the
lionization of Norman Schwar-
zkopf. Before there was the
ascendant, intellectual strate-
gist and political animal, there
was the old-school hero.
Petreaus, of course, self-
destructed along his career
climb that had plenty more
upside left. Schwarzkopf, 78,
died before he could do more
community and charity work,
most notably with prostate
cancer awareness and the
Children's Home, a shelter
for children who have been
abused or neglected.
When we lost Norman
Schwarzkopf, we lost a piece
of non-renewable history. We
lost someone who truly earned
the hyperbolically overused
"hero" designation.
While Schwarzkopf had
a renaissance side with his
foreign-language facility and a
master's degree in engineering
from the University of South-
ern California, he was best
known for doing what lionized
generals used to do: He actu-
ally won a war. His charge was
not just to "manage" one until
political expedience kicked in.
In "Operation Desert
Storm" he led coalition forces
in a successful, six-week war
- with minimal casualties -
that drove Iraq out of Kuwait.
He also was smart enough
and prescient enough to know
that resisting the temptation
to go all the way to Baghdad
to personally oust Saddam
Hussein was the prudent ap-
proach. He lobbied accord-
ingly, because he ironically
- didn't see America's role as
a de facto occupier.
Schwarzkopf, who was
honorarily knighted by Queen
Elizabeth, given the Medal of
Freedom by President George
H.W. Bush and welcomed


home with a ticker-tape pa-
rade up Broadway, became
an overdue antidote of pride
and competence to America's
Vietnam legacy of embittered
frustration. The country col-
lectively needed what Schwar-
zkopf provided.
Speaking of Vietnam,
Schwarzkopf had seen it first
hand as a battalion com-
mander. He would earn three
Distinguished Service Medals,
three Silver Stars for valor,
a Bronze Star and a Purple
Heart.
Schwarzkopf was a man's
man, a soldier's soldier, a pa-
triot's patriot. He even looked
the part; the "Bear" nickname
was pure central casting, even
if his civilian demeanor belied
his gruff side.
"Gen. Norm Schwarzkopf
epitomized the 'duty, service,
country' creed that has de-
fended our freedom and seen
this great nation through our
most trying international cri-
ses," eulogized former Presi-
dent George H.W. Bush, his
commander-in-chief in the
Iraqi war.
To our credit, Gen. Schwar-
zkopf chose Tampa for his
post-military life, a life con-
spicuously spent outside the
enticing fast lane of political
opportunity. Norman Schwar-
zkopf, old-school American
hero, thank you.

Emancipating Compromise
I've mentioned before what
a great read The Presidents'
Club, by Nancy Gibbs and
Michael Duffy, is. Coinciden-
tally, there's a reference to the
most recent member, Barack
Obama, that is all too ironi-
cally relevant right now. If
you've been fortunate enough
to have seen the movie Lin-
coln, y'ouY'e well prepped.
President Obama tells the
authors that compromise
need not be interpreted as
selling out one's convictions.
He then cited President Lin-
coln as a prime example. The
Emancipation Proclamation,
which hangs prominently in
this president's Oval Office, is
Exhibit A. President Obama
makes the point that it did not
emancipate everybody.
There were provisions and
exceptions, and it obviously
couldn't be enforced by Lin-
coln in areas under Confed-
erate control. But it was a
rallying point, and it was a
critical step in paving the way
for the ratification of the 13th
Amendment, the one that ac-

tually abolished slavery.
"Now think about that,"
underscored the president.
"The 'Great Emancipator' was
making a compromise in the
Emancipation Proclamation
because he thought it was
necessary ... in preserving the
Union and winning the war.
"So you know what? If
Abraham Lincoln could make
some compromises as part of
governance, then surely we
can make some compromises
when it comes to handling our
budget."
You would think.
Media Matters
This year's presidential
election reinforced some ba-
sics about polls. You .can't
always trust them. So many
variables, so little verification.
But here's one that, despite it's
almost unprecedented num-
bers, absolutely resonates. A
Ta"mpa Bay 'rimes/Bay News
9/AM 820 News Tampa Bay
Poll shows nearly 90 percent
of respondents favoring a ban
on testing while driving.
Seven percent opposed such a
law for this state.
Florida remains one of 11
states that has not outlawed
text messaging for drivers.
That's a disgrace and the
poll numbers surely reflect
the outrage. As for that seven
percent? That's still too high
for a blatantly obvious pub-
lic-safety threat even given
the number of telecom lobby-
ists and self-styled, politically
partisan. "personal liberty"
champions out there.
I always look in on the
Outback Bowl, regardless of
who's playing. To be honest,
however, I'm most interested
in those network cut-away
shots that feature local color -
from Busch Gardens and Ybor
City to waterfront skylines to
Gulf beaches. Especially when
the weather is notably balmy
here and not even close most
other places. That's a gratis
marketing coup on national
television every New Year's
Day. On Tuesday, the score-
board showed that South Car-
olina won, but Tampa Bay is
an Outback winner each year.
NBC Nightly News fol-
lows the industry standard
by teasing to its own network
programming, in this case
"Rock Center" and "Meet The
Press." Often. It's part of the
business of news. We all get
that. But that's no accept-
able, self-interest rationale for
how it handled the flap about
"Meet The Press" host David
Gregory's dramatic display of
a high-capacity magazine in
his interview with NRA vice
president Wayne LaPierre. It
was all over the internet and
print media that Washing-
ton's Metropolitan Police De-
partment had opened an in-
vestigation as to whether NBC
and Gregory had broken a
law, namely the one that pro-
hibits the sheer possession of
such magazines.
NBC's immediate response:
no comment by a spokesper-
son. But more to the point,
the "Nightly News" couldn't so
much as mention it. There's

Thomas Sowell is a well-
known conservative author
and scholar. As a black Re-
publican, he occupies, espe-
cially these days, a unique
media niche. He's presumed
to personify the truth-teller
who'd rather stand on prin-
ciple than embrace a brother.
As it should be. Unless, that
is, you say this in a recent
Creators Syndicate column:
"After watching a docu-
mentary about the tragic sto-
ry of Jonestown, I was struck
by the utterly unthinking
way that so many people put
themselves completely at the
mercy of a glib and warped
man, who led them to degra-
dation and destruction. And I
could not help thinking of the
parallel with the way we put
a glib and warped man in the
White House."
That's not writing; that's
spewing. Thomas Sowell has
morphed into Allen West.
American Exceptionalism
When you're a Tea Party-
Koch Brothers-Cato Institute
kinld of governor, you make it
known in no uncertain terms
that big government is no ally.
In fact, its society-eroding role
needs constant monitoring
and marginalization. But for
Gov. Rick Scott inconvenient
exceptions keep popping up
- from, say, personal higher-
education help via the G.I. Bill
to, well, requesting Tropical
Storm Isaac aid to, oh, calling
on the president to invoke the
Taft-Hartley Act to pre-empt
a possible longshoremen's
strike. How, uh, ironic.

SILHOUETTES

Patrick Allman related the
tale of how his initial attempts
to join the Tampa Port Au-
thority were rebuffed. "Every
year, I would apply for any
opening in the Port Author-
ity. I remember after about
my third attempt in not mak-
ing it, a bunch of the people
in the Port community said, 'It
looks to us that you're really
serious about applying. This
is the third time
we've seen you." '
He recounted, |
laughing, "I said,
'Next year, I'll be
back again."'
After encoun-
tering this chal-
lenge, Allman
became active
in the commu-
nity through the
Tampa Propel-
ler Club, learn-
ing the ins and
outs of Port life.
In 2010, his per-

he was appoint-
ed by Go\ernor
Rick Scott as a
commissioner r
Allman's i n-
terest in the e
maritime in d. s.-
try started a i a
young age
"I am from
Miami, Florida.
I always wanted
to be on a sub-
marine. When I
was about eight,
my dad took
me down to the
submarine base
in Key West. I "This is the
thought that you state of Fic
had to major in
nuclear engineering to be on
a submarine, so I went to col-
lege and majored in nuclear
engineering," he reported. He
went through the NROTC pro-
gram at the University of Vir-
ginia.
Upon graduation, he re-
ceived his naval commission.
Following Naval Nuclear Pow-
er School in Orlando, Florida,
he received training at the Na-
val Nuclear Power Prototype
in Ballston Spa, New York
and Naval Submarine School
in New London, Connecticut.
Allman served as a divi-
sion officer and department
head on the USS Henry Clay
(SSBN 625). He also quali-
fied as an engineer and a
weapons officer. "I had five
commands. The last one was
at an underwater listening
station in Naples, which is
manned by reservists. My job
was to have a qualified reserv-
ist on the scene, every day...
prior to that, I was in Keflavik
[Iceland], where we supple-
mented their command with
reservists. I've had one in
Charleston, South Carolina,
where we provided support
to the weapons station. I had
another where we provided
logistics support. In my cur-
rent one, I'm in charge of in-
active reserves for this part of
Florida. I provide personnel
for different mobilizations and
support.
"I went and qualified as
an engineer at the very end
of my first tour. I was pretty
lucky I actually ended up re-
lieving the weapons officer I
ended up, on my first tour, as
a weapons officer on an SSBNI
It was a lot of responsibility for
being all of, what, 26? I was
a lieutenant at the time, but
to be 26 and have 16 ballistic


missiles and 50 guys work-
ing for you..." he laughed. "I
think everything I've done in
the Navy has helped to shape
me. Nothing's perfect, but
overall it's been a positive
experience...that's why I've
stayed for 29 years." In June,
Allman will retire from the US
Navy Reserves with the rank
of Captain.
The Navy and his mar-


'atrick Allmal


e largest port, in tonnage and sl
orida...It has a massive economic
riage provided Allman's in-
troduction to Tampa. "My
wife, Alison, wanted to move
to Tampa she's from Tam-
pa. We were in Charleston,
South Carolina. She wanted
to move here. So I got orders
to be in charge of recruiting
here, in Tampa." The couple
has lived in Tampa, with their
two now-teenage children,
since 1990. While recruiting,
Allman received his MBA from
the University of Tampa. That
year, Allman left active duty to
spend more time with his fam-
ily and went to work at Tampa
Electric Company (TECO).
"I was with TECO for nine
years. While I was with TECO,
I worked in marketing and
economic development. At the
time, we thought the electric
industry would be deregulat-
ed. I was basically an account
manager and got close to
large, industrial companies,
because we thought they'd
have a choice in their power
suppliers. I also did econom-
ic development, because we
were trying to recruit manu-
facturers to come to this part
of Florida for the jobs.
"I was involved in recruit-
ing this bleach company. This
lot wasn't even for sale I
convinced one of my custom-
ers next door, the paper plant,
to sell them this property be-
cause the business needed a
substation and this industrial
park didn't have one. It was
kind of a win-win... the inves-
tors came back a couple of
months after I'd helped them
out with everything. The said,
'We just bought this property;
we have a $20 million bank
loan and we don't know any-
one in Tampa but you. You did
such a good job convincing us
to set up our business here,


we want to hire you to design,
build and runthe place."'
Allman has been Odyssey
Manufacturing Company's
general manager since 1999.
The company is the largest
industrial supplier of bleach
in Florida, importing its raw
material salt through the
Port of Tampa. "What we do
is make bleach. Our primary
customer base is the water
and wastewater
I treatment indus-
try. Almost all the
bleach we make,
we sell it by
tanker. Almost
all of the drink-
ing water in
Florida there's
a very good
chance that the
chlorine in the
drinking water
is from Odyssey
Manufacturing,"
he said.
His position
managing a
chemical com-
pany comes
with a sense of
responsibility to
the environment
and the commu-
nity's safety.
"This is a zero-
discharge plant.
There isn't any-
thing that isn't
captured here.
For example,
the plant itself
is one big con-
tainnient. If we
have a spill, it's
all captured in
the plant. Every
bit of processed
water or anyv-
thing processed,
hips, in the if it were to leak
.c impact." out, is captured.
It's neutralized
and it's sent to the sewers.
With a chemical plant, you
have a social responsibility to
make it as safe as possible,
but that's also good business,
because you're going to get
better insurance premiums,
you're going to have a safer
workplace and you're going
to have happier workforce. It
just makes good sense."
Allman became interest-
ed in matters involving the
Tampa Port Authority. "One
day, I picked up the newspa-
per about seven or eight years
ago... there was an article
about all the condominiums
going up in Channelside. It
was clear the Port was shrink-
ing. The Port is supposed
to be an economic develop-
ment driver... once you build
a condominium on the water,
that's it; the only economic
driver is construction activ-
ity. There are no incoming
jobs from ships going in and
out. I decided to get involved."
Allman's curiosity led to the
cycle of repeatedly applying
to the Port's Board of Com-
missioners at first, with no
success.
The Port leveled with All-
man. "They said, 'Well tell
you what...you need to get
involved and get to know ev-
eryone in the Port community
before you're going to be rec-
ommended. Why don't you
join the Propeller Club?' So
1 joined and they put me on
its board of directors to get to
know people in the commu-
nity. I think that was a really
good thing, because I think,
quite frankly, I became a lot
more educated about the Port
and I think there was a com-
fort level between me and a lot
of the community. I made a lot
of really good friends...it was


really just a civic interest.
"Most of the people who
have the biggest stake and
the best interests in the port
are people in the Propeller
Club and maritime commu-
nity they have businesses
there that actually depend on
the commerce coming in and
out of here. One of the nice
things about organizations
such as the Propeller Club is
that there are lots of events
that give people opportuni-
ties...you can say, 'Hey, what
can you tell me about this?' or
'Did you know about this? We
have a concern here.' It just
gives people an informal way
to connect with you or raise
issues and awareness.
"My business has a very
small interest in the Port -
nothing major. I bring in about
two barges of salt through the
Port every year salt's my raw
material. I think, sometimes,
you just get older in life and
you think it's a really good
civic duty. I really believe that
business people need to be in-
volved in these sorts of things
and have different experienc-
es they can bring to the table,
because at the end of the day,
the Port Authority is a busi-
ness. It definitely needs to be
run like a business. I think,
to the extent that people that
business people apply, it's a
good thing."
Allman emphasized his role
- and the Port's role in the
community and the State of
Florida. "I was appointed to be
one of the two maritime Port
commissioners. My view of it
is I'm representing everybody
in this area. There are seven
of us it's like a democracy;
it's a representative form of
government, so to speak.
We're supposed to be open to
the people in this area.
"This is the largest port,
in tonnage and ships, in the
state of Florida. It is the major
economic driver for this whole
Tampa Bay area, including Pi-
nellas. It has a massive eco-
nomic impact...I don't know if
everybody realizes that.
"Every time a ship comes
under the Skyway, a pilot has
a job because he or she has
to guide it in. Tugboats have
a job. because they have to


guide the ship in and put it up
to its berth. Stevedoring com-
panies have to offload that
ship, load it or both. People
providing hotel services all
now have jobs. Truckers and
the railroad get to pull the
freight off that ship, because
incoming ships are bring-
ing things in and they take it
somewhere. Cruise ships are
all participating, too. There
are so many jobs that spin off
this port, it's incredible."
Allman's hope during his
term as a Port commissioner
is to see an increase in ship-
ping. "If you look at what's
happened here in the Port of
Tampa over the last six years,
we've averaged almost a two
million tons a year decline in
cargo. Yes, we've been a re-
cession for at least four years.
One of the things we're real
hopeful about in the future is
that we have a new CEO, Paul
Anderson.
"I don't think anyone would
disagree this CEO has much
more of a marketing develop-
ment type of background than
our former CEO. I think that's
one of the reasons he was se-
lected. Our hope is he goes
out and markets this port like
crazy to reverse that tonnage
decline."
Allman is optimistic about
the Port's new leader and its
future.
"I think we did get a super-
star. He performed in Jack-
sonville. At the end of the day,
the best predictor of some-
one's future is how they per-
formed in the past. I think the
staff is energized and very ex-
cited, getting this new leader."
He added, "Even if this re-
cession lingers, there is still
business going on. To the ex-
tent we can go out and get as
much of it as we can would be
wonderful. That's what we're
all hopeful for, not just me,
but the other commissioners
and the rest of the commu-
nity that.this guy is going to
go out, market this port and
bring in business, tonnage
and jobs. We have a lot of in-
frastructure we have a lot of
docks and a lot of port con-
tainers. Now we just need the
ships!"

Its performance of chamber
music at the Circulo Cubano (Cu-
ban Club) in Ybor City the day
before, in some ways, was even
more magical. Having musicians
straight from Cuba on stage at
the Cuban Club completes the
Cuban circle that has been bro-

After speaking with some
Republican legislators, we
learned that you shouldn't hold
your breath for any meaningful
election reforms.
Most firmly believe Demo-
crats only want reforms, such
as extended early voting, easier
registration and more voting
locations, to gain an advantage...
The School Board had a
ceremony this week to thank
outgoing board member Dr. Jack
Lamb. Dr. Lamb served with
dignity and class on the board
for 12 years. He devoted over 50
years of his life to education. We
have always known him to be
honest, thoughtful and caring.
Dr. Lamb deserves this commu-
nity's thanks for his service and
he certainly has ours...


November 23
...GQ magazine asked Marco
Rubio a simple question "How
old do you think the Earth is?"
He responded, "I'm not a sci-
entist, man. I can tell you what
recorded history says. I can tell
you what the Bible says, but I
think that's a dispute among
theologians and I think it has
nothing to do with the gross
domestic product or economic
growth of the United States."
While we don't expect an exact
number, we hope Rubio can tell
us whether he thinks the Earth is
billions of years old, as geologists
have determined, or 7,000 years
old if one takes the IBible literally,
adds the seven days of creation
and calculates all the begats.
The Rubio who was speaker of
the Florida House of Representa-
tives would have easily answered,
"Billions of years." The Rubio of
today, who by the way sits on the
Senate Commerce, Science and
Transportation Committee, is so
scared of offending his Tea Party
sycophants that he won't give an
honest answer...
USF's Morsani College of
Medicine is very lucky to have


Dr. John T. Sinnott. accept the
position of chair of medicine.
Dr. Sinnott has a special gift
in recognizing young, exception-
al talent in the field of medicine
and fostering these young doc-
tors' growth.
With Dr. Sinnott, the Uni-
versity not only gets a great
mind the University has an
accomplished ambassador...

The Tampa Port Authority
offered $50,000 in October to the
Tampa Streetcar Hoard to hire
a director.
The Board considered the of-
fer as a potential gift and is offer-
ing back to the Port Authority a
list, of suggested uses for the gift,
none of which are for a director.
We think the Board's answer
is unenthusiastic and weak.
The Port's $50,000 offer
wasn't a gift. It was a challenge
and the Board is not rising to
meet the challenge...

Some are speculating that
Florida Democratic Party's exec-
utive director, Scott Arceneaux,
was getting a little worried about
the upcoming election for party


chair who, in turn, would be his
boss...
...The story goes that Arce-
neaux got US Senator Bill Nel-
son and Congresswoman Debbie
Wasser man Schultz to recruit
Allison Tant Richard.
Ms. Tant Richard, currently a
full-time mom, according to Tal-
lahassee Magazine, is a former
lobbyist for Holland & Knight
and before that, for Steel, Hector
& Davis. She was the northwest
Florida finance chair for the
Obama reelection campaign.
Her husband is the well-known
lawyer, Barry Richard, who rep-
resented George W. Bush before
the Florida Supreme Court in
the 2000 Gore vs. Bush election
debacle.
We attended the Pittsburgh
vs. USF football game last week-
end and the Bulls stunk up the
place...
...Near the end of the second
quarter, the chant "Fire Holtz"
rang out loud and clear in the
disenchanted section.
We're glad USF heard the
chants and that the end came
quickly.
December 14
Tampa International Air-
port boss Joe Lopano made
improving the concessions at our
world-class airport a major focus


of his administration.
The process of making the
airport concessions more local
and innovative has just begun,
but early changes are already
drawing recognition...
We welcome Charlie Crist
to the party of Jackson, Wilson,
Roosevelt, Johnson and Clinton.
Crist finally joined the Demo-
crats and signed up to the cause
of the New Deal and the Great
Society. We need the help to pro-
tect Social Security, Medicaid,
Medicare and Obamacare...
December 21
President Barack Obama
kicked off the campaign to bring
reason to the American relation-
ship with firearms. His admin-
istration's opening volley was
meaningful in that it's about
"massacre control," not "gun
control." Success in these fights
often hinge on vocabulary.
Reducing the availability
of assault weapons and large-
capacity magazines can be cast
as a fight against weapons of
mass destruction. We remember
this nation going to war over
WMDs. Maybe we can now go to
war domestically.

Ybor City on Monday night.


The Outback Bowl Parade and Pep Rally rolled through Ybor's Seventh Avenue
Monday, Dec. 31. Ybor City welcomed University of Michigan and South Carolina
fans to the Historic National Landmark District.

The annual Outback Bowl
parade rolled down Seventh
Avenue in the early evening
of New Year's Eve. Fans of the
participating schools, South
Carolina and Michigan, made
for a pleasant mix with locals
for a great night in Ybor City.
Participants in the parade
included Mayor Bob Buck-
horn and family, the Tampa
Fire Department in a vintage
fire truck, various Boy Scout
troops, high school bands
from around the country and
a few local krewes to add some
local flavor.
Not to be forgotten was
Tampa Police Chief Jane Cas-
tor, who skillfully and simul-
taneously drove her own pa-


trol car while throwing beads
to the throngs of outstretched
arms.
The crowd was well be-
haved as police officers were
seen giving directions to visit-
ing patrons and smiling chil-
dren played gleefully.
To wind up the parade, the
Outback Bowl float passed by
and the Michigan Wolverines
in maize and blue, entered
the parade route to raucous
cheers.
Strong in numbers and
spirit, it didn't take them long
to get the crowd going with
their chants and fight song.
Lastly, the South Carolina
Gamecocks emerged in red,
black and white. Led by their
hi-fiving mascot, Cocky. the


Mighty Sound of the Southeast
(South Carolina's band) closed
the parade in high spirits.
Local businesses report-
ed good numbers the whole
weekend as many bowl at-
tendees made a long weekend
of it, arriving carly to enjoy our
relatively good weather. Lots of
out-of-towners came in to have
lunch or dinner and shopped
throughout the weekend.
The following day, visiting
fans were treated to the most
exciting of the bowl games as
South Carolina beat Michigan
with a come-from-behind vic-
tory of 33-28. The Gamecocks
closed out their rally with a
touchdown with just 11 sec-
onds left in the game to seal
the win.

Oh, the Humanity!


A new year is upon us and
as usual, a resolution needs
to be made. I've made the
mistake in the past of mak-
ing resolutions that I either
forget, or have no real possi-
bility of achieving, like losing
weight, quitting smoking, get-
ting handsomer...
This year I've decided to
conduct a social experiment. I
was inspired by a story I read
over the weekend of a man
who spent his 56th birthday
by committing 56 random
acts of kindness in one day.
His kindness included giving
away money, carrying grocer-
ies and other nice things that
used to be human nature, but
now get headlines.
What made the story par-
ticularly inspiring was that he
wanted to do the same thing
with his next birthday but
was worried that he wouldn't
be able to wait that long. It
fulfilled him in a way he never
dreamed.
It got me thinking that I
could do something like this.
Maybe not 56 in one day, but


I could stretch it out over the
year.
So I am committing to per-
form at least one random act
of kindness per week for one
year. I don't know what this
experiment will entail, but
being random lends itself to
spontaneity, so I don't really
have to know yet.
Before anyone asks me
for money, I don't have any,
so forget it, but I am open to
suggestions, so please email
gsiudut@lagacetanewspaper.
com if you have any ideas for
me. I'm sure I don't need to tell
all of you to keep it clean. (I'm
looking at you, Paul Guzzo.)
I'm almost embarrassed I
haven't thought of something
like this before, but reading
the story affected me in a way
that I hope affects all of you
out there, which is to take it
upon yourselves to do some-
thing similar.
Of course, I'm not referring
to being a nice person or act-
ing in a kind manner towards
strangers. We're supposed to
do that. I'm suggesting that


all of us can go above and be-
yond, just a tad.
I won't bore you with the
weekly details, but I will keep
track and give a report at
some point, so stay tuned.
New Year's Day also means
something else to many of
us. Because it's a chronologic
new start, we have to assess
what we've accomplished,
or failed at taking on in the
previous year so that we can
make changes.
My problem is that I only
ever think of the things I want
to improve upon and end up
having a pity party for myself
over the failures of the year.
I think it would be more
beneficial to look back at the
good things we accomplish
over the year and try to im-
prove upon them or as Ann
Landers once said, "If at first
you do succeed, try something
harder." It makes the year in
review much more palatable.
So, I'll try to be better this
year and I hope all of you do
the same.
Happy New Yearl

I Promise, Seriously


A new year has slipped on
us again and we are thank-
ful for the opportunity to be
here. So, as we have in previ-
ous New Years, we shall look
forward to a new beginning
in so many ways.
In order to achieve our
lofty goals, we must first
take care of what is left of
our bodies. So, could you
join me in an effort to regain
some of our lost. healthy hab-
its? I promise, our efforts will
result in invaluable returns.
If we have not done so
in the last year or so, get a
physical check-up with your
physician. If we are suffi-
ciently healthy, there is no
reason other than mental
blocks, why we should not
begin a fitness program.
Look in the mirror and ask
yourself if you can improve
what you see. OK, so looking
in the mirror was not such
a good idea. Just check the
numbers on the scale and
see if that confirms what is
on these pages. I know, it
may be shocking, but it may
- be the wake-up call neces-
sary to motivate us.
If we have lost some of the
mobility in our creaky joints
making it more difficult than
ever to walk one mile, still,
let us begin today. Maybe
not one mile the first day,
lets us try for just one quar-
ter, one block or how about
once around the yard for
starters. According to most
any cardiologist, a few min-
utes of brisk walking each
day will help keep coronary
heart disease at bay. Start
slow and by the end of the
month we shall be strutting
that whole mile and maybe
more. I promise.
Remember those touch-
your-toes we used to do with
such case? Well, presently
they may be reduced touch
your knees. At least for start-
ers, maybe just look at your
knees and bend down as
much as you can. It will get
better, I promise.
There are those of us that
cannot use our lower body


very well or at all. How about
arm and upper body exercis-
es? Remember the strength
you used to have at arm
wrestling? Well, maybe you
cannot get it all back, nimybe
just a bit today, more totior-
row and more the next week.
It will improve 1 promise.
The Y.M.C.A nearest to
you provides special pro-
grams for- senior citizens
that are amazing. Exercise
classes, swimminilg, water
aerobics and other low inm-
pact workouts, some with
the assistance of private
trainers. Under certain in-
surance company's health
and medical coverage plans,
membership to gymnasiums
and the Y.M.C.A. are free.
During our routine trips to
the Y, we have occasion to
observe individuals that are
truly physically impaired or
recovering from strokes, car-
diac conditions, accidental
injuries or other debilitating
circumstances. Yet, admira-
bly, they are there, trying to
improve whatever they have.
While exercise is of great
assistance, our food intake
can be our doorm. Most ev-
eryone understands the per-
ils of over eating or eating the
wrong things. Thrce meals
per day are a grcat standard
unless they arc all fast foods
composed of fatty, choles-
terol producing substanc-
es. Smoking and cxcessivec
drinking of alcohol are all on
the forbidden list.
Now, how aboutt the oth-
er promises? We promise
to embark in more fishing
trips this year. We have the
blessing of a magnificent
and fruitful Gulf and Bay at

I Do
ly vast. From the far reaches
of Alaska to the southern
shores of the Florida Keys we
can enjoy any and all out-
door activities imaginable.
Fliking thlie wilderness trails
that crisscross our national
parks can be stimulating ex-
periences. Skiing thlie slopes
of our snow-capped rnoun-
tains on a cold crisp day
are exhilarating experiences
beyond description. Hunt-
ing in the American wilder-
ness, from the most remote
northwestern states to our
southern forest is the best in
the world. Traveling through
the Bluel Ridge Mountains,
along the California coast or
on the overseas highway in
our Florida Keys all are good
medicine for mind and body.
Whether we decide to wet
a line on a modest pond or
seek a fight with one of the
big game guys on the deep
blue, Florida produces some
of the best fishing anywhere.
Let us not forget, that time
is our constant thoughtless
and unforgiving companion.
It will bring immense joy or
terrible sorrow. It moves at
its own maddening, relent
less, and alarming pace.
Time l has no colcerln of any-
one's wants or needs, it waits
for no oic.\Andrino one can
cscapfe its ilnexorable grasp.
Todal\ is thle lirst dav of the
rest of our lives. So let us re-
solve to make the best use of
our precious time by striving
to maintain a healthy body
and mind in order to best
enjoy our lives. Invest a few
minutes per day on yourself.
It works. I promise.
We wish our readers
a happy prosperous and
healthy New Year.
BE A GOOD SPORT!


The Guzzo's Christmas

Vacation Part 1


(continued from page 11)
At one point, even the woman
next to me yelled, "Would you
please control your kid!" And
yes, the woman next to me
was Amy, who was enjoying
her plane ride as the older kids
played with their multiple digi-
tal devices and did not bother
her.
After about 20 minutes of
trying to control the beast, the
yoLIung man in my row sug-
gested I just let Ben sit in the
empty middle seat, swearing
he did not mind and that Ben
would not bother him. Sweet,
I thought. I placed Ben on the
seat but quickly realized that
the seatbclt could not hold
him tight, thus it was not a
safe place for him to sit. But
when I tried to pick the little
devil back up, he successful
squirmed away from me and
made his way to freedom -
AKA the floor!
He. was loose! Oh my God,
he was loose! He crawled un-
der the middle seat. I had lost
him! I jumped' to my feet and
yelled to the people in the row
behind me, "Don't crush my
son! He is coming your way!" It
took a few moments for them
to realize what I was saying,
but when they saw my son's
big head pop up at their feet,
they thankfully smiled rather
than grimaced and corralled
him for me. But his moment of
freedom only emboldened him.
As soon as he was back in
my arms, he went crazy again.
Amy began shoveling every-
thing my way to help calm him
- a game pad, a portable DVD
player, every food under the
sun ... everything. But nothing
was working. Then ... UGH.
Before I unveil what calmed
him, I must explain that I DO
NOT share food with my kids. I
do not feed them from my plate
and do not eat their leftovers. I
will not share a cup with them
and will not ever let them use
my fork. It is gross. Kids, my
blood or not. are gross.


So it was ironic that the
only thing that would stop
Ben's epic tantrum was that
processed cheese that comes
in those cheese and pretzel
packs, the ones in which you
scoop that faux cheese up with
a pretzel stick. Ben scooped a
big pile of cheese onto his fin-
ger, shoved it in his mouth
and then, with my guard down
from exasperation, stuck his
slimy cheese covered finger
into my mouth.
I gagged in disgust and he
laughed. When he tried to do
it again, I recoiled in terror
and he began tantrumming
again. So I let him feed me an-
other scoop of cheese after he
sucked on it, and he laughed
again and. calmed.
I never give in to a tantrum.
NEVER. But on this occasion,
not wanting my son to disrupt
an entire plane for 150 min-
utes, I not only gave in to his
temper but also gave in on my
promise to never eat my kid's
food. Cheese pack after cheese
pack was opened four in all.
For an hour I let him feed me
that puke they call cheese, al-
lowing him to do so after cov-
ering it with his spit.
He finally fell asleep and
did not stir for the remaining
90 minutes of the flight. But
those first 60 ... they will scar
me forever. I lost a piece of my
soul on that plane and I don't
think I will ever get it back.
And this was just the first
day of my trip.
This Christmas vacation
was a doozy!

ARIES (March 21 to April
19): Shutting people out to
avoid distractions, even un-
der a deadline, can cause
hurt feelings. Instead, return
calls and emails, and explain
why you need a zone of pri-
vacy for now.
TAURUS (April 20 to May
20): Although your keen Bull's
eyes usually can discern
what's fact from what's faux,
that upcoming decision will
need really solid data before
you can risk a commitment.
GEMINI (May 21 to June 20):
As your confidence grows, you
should be able to work toward
your goals with more enthusi-
asm. Open your mind to sug-
gestions. Some of them might
even work for you.
CANCER (June 21 to July
22): Reconnecting with some-
one from your past stirs up
that old sense of adventure.
But before you do anything
else, be sure to get answers to
those still-lingering questions.
LEO (July 23 to August 22):
Some people might resent the
way you plan to resolve a dif-
ficult situation. But your com-
mitment to making tough but
fair decisions soon wins you
their respect and support.
VIRGO (August 23 to Sep-
tember 22): Mixed signals
could be causing that vexing
workplace problem. Before
you choose to leave the proj-
ect, ask for a meeting so you
can get things out in the open.
LIBRA (September 23 to Oc-
tober 22): Your good inten-


tions could backlire if you're
not careful with other people's
feelings. Try using persuasion,
not pressure, to get others to
see your side of the situation.
SCORPIO (October 23 to No-
vember 21): Your dedication
to finishing the task at hand
is laudable. But be careful not
to overdo the midnight oil bit.
Take time for relaxation with
someone very special.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22
to December 21): Although
your intuition will help you
make some tough choices in
the first half of the month,
you'll need more facts to back
up your actions later on.
CAPRICORN (December 22
to January 19): All that hard
work and research in the work-
place finally pays off as you
hoped it would. Ignore com-
ments from jealous types who
are out to get the Goat riled up.
AQUARIUS (January 20 to
February 18): An unfair de-
cision creates unnecessary
problems. But avoid anger and
move carefully as you work
this out. Expect to get support
from an unlikely source.
PISCES (February 19 to
March 20): A fuzzy finan-
cial vista persists until mid-
month, when things begin to
clear up. You'll also gain a
better perspective on how to
handle those pesky personal
problems.
BORN THIS WEEK: You have
a wonderful way of being there
for those who need your help
in difficult times.
