Sean Shaw. is the first of what
we expect to be many candidates
for State House District 61. He
came from good stock: His father
is Leander Shaw, Jr., the first
African-American Chief Justice of
the Florida Supreme Court.
He is a graduate of Princeton
and the University of Florida's
Levin School of Law. He served
as Florida's insurance consumer
advocate under CFO Alex Sink. He
practices law at Merlin Law Group.
Some others who are mentioned
as potential candidates are Lynette
Judge, Tampa City Councilman


Frank Reddick, Edwin Narain and
Tatiana Denson.
District 61 is currently repre-
sented by Betty Reed, who, is retir-
ing in 2014..

The attorney for the Hillsbor-
ough County School Board, Tom
Gonzalez, asked School Board
Chair April Griffin right after the
Tuesday Board meeting to accept
the resignation he submitted in
April. That resignation came after
a disagreement between then-chair
Candy Olson and Mr. Gonzalez.
Tuesday's meeting was also

marked by a disagreement between
chair Griffin and attorney Gonzalez
over a vote on an auditor for the
district. Griffin expressed a lack
of confidence in his opinion. The
timing of his resignation leads us
to believe that was the straw that
broke the camel's back.

En su tercera derrota consecutive de la Big East, las defi-

tables entire las muchas flaquezas del equipo de baloncesto
masculine de "USF, al caer por casi 30 puntos ante Louisville
en un juego cuyo resultado final fue 64-38 el sdbado por la
tarde. Desde el comienzo del partido, se vio a un USF suma-
mente errAtico y apagado, cuando los Cardenales sacaron una
aplastante ventaja inicial de 19-3. Esta fue la d6cima victoria
al hilo de Louisville. Como ejemplo del descalabro, Victor Rudd,

Lance Armstrong revela

por Leonardo Venta


Cesar Santos, un claisico del siglo XXI


Con su virtuoso pincel ma-
nifiesta pericia y hdlitos re-'
nacentistas, asi como de los
grandes maestros decimon6ni-
cos, en tem&ticas del siglo XXI,
y otros novedosos proyectos.
Aquel que domina las t6cnicas
mas exigentes dentro de las ar-
tes plAsticas, d6 la manera que
lo hace C6sar Santos, puede
darse el lujo de incursionar
triunfalmente en cualquier
modalidad estilistica.
Cuando lo entrevist6 en
2007, a raiz de "Danza Impo-
sible", el afiche official del XII
Festival Internacional de Ba-
llet de Miami creado por 61,
Santos no tenia televisor, aho-
ra nos confiesa que tiene uno
enfrente de su cama, si bien
permanece entire 10 a 13 ho-
ras diarias en su studio. Sus
models preferidas, las muje-
res, especialmente su esposa
Valentina, aparecen sensual-
mente en obras en las que
usualmente 61 se autorretrata.
"Mi meta como artist y ser
human es mantenerme con la
libertad de expresar mis ideas
y lo que siento con respect al
arte. De lograrlo, seria influen-
ciar la trayectoria del arte del
future y mantenerme como
parte de la historic del arte",
afirma Santos, quien naci6 el
10 de julio de 1982 en Santa
Clara, Cuba, y emigr6 con su
familiar a Estados Unidos a la
edad de.13 afios.
Nuestro pintor ha explorado
desde temprana edad el oficio
de figurar ideas y objetos en
una superficie, con los trazos
y colors pertinentes. Estudi6
arte en el New World College de
Miami, ciudad en la que cre-
ci6. De alli se traslad6 a Angel
Academy of Art, en Florencia,
Italia, hasta graduarse, bajo la
tutela de Michael John Angel
- discipulo del Gran Maestro
Pietro Annigoni, uno de los
grandes de la pintura realis-


ta italiana del siglo XX y, a su
vez, estudioso de maestros re-
nacentistas como Tiziano y Da
Vinci, de quienes no s6lo capt6
el esplendor artistic de una
6poca, sino los mas particula-
res procedimientos pict6ricos-.
El estilo de Santos se carac-
teriza por extraer elements
cotidianos fuera de su con-
texto natural para crear un
novedoso entorno para ellos,
una nueva realidad a juicio
de .este columnist mas su-
blime, ideal y asequible. Para
61, "su arte es una metafora de
la vida, y cada cual debe poner
un poco de si mismo a la hora
de interpretarlo".
Le atraen y divierten las
oposiciones, diriamos (litera-
riamente) el oximoron com-
binaci6n de expresiones de
significado opuesto, que origi-
nan un nuevo sentido -, rara
mixture pict6rica que nos in-
terpola a la creaci6n literaria
del genio Jorge Luis Borges.
Otro rasgo distintivo de la obra
de Santos es la armonia que
enarbola tal pldcido celaje,
complaciente paz interior que
se desliza cual alado espiritu
de adentro hacia fuera. Nada
es explicit para 61, siempre le
ronda una metafora de lo so-
brehumano humanizado, lo
cotidiano divinizado, lo impo-
sible possible, lo mefitico puri-
ficado, el dechado reverente de
lo can6nico. En un lenguaje
postmodemo diriamos la ven-
ganza de la copia.
Observamos en casi todos
los cuadros del joven artist
plastico una fuerza fluida -
que se imbuye de concepts
contemporaneos, refrescantes,
asi como de una filosofia per-
sonal que establece "el marida-
je entire lo clasico y lo moder-
no yuxtapuesto y fundido en
un mismo nivel", en perfect
armonia est6tica pero lanzan-
do guifios que transcienden


el marco de la propuesta ori-
ginal. "Mis herramientas son
la imraginaci6n y la tecnica: la
esencia y la base de mi traba-
jo. Siento la necesidad de plas-
mar figures y objetos evasivos
en disefios conceptuales que
tienten a la verosimilitud, que
convenzan", confiesa nuestro
deslumbrante maestro.
Los logros alcanzados por
Santos a una edad en que
no sobreabundan en otros
artists son -significativos.
Basta mencionar el primer
premio en fotografia "It's Time
We Met", Ptorgado por el Mu-
seo Metropolitano de Arte
de Nueva York. Ha exhibido
en espacios tan prestigiosos
como la exposici6n "El legado
de Annigoni", en Villa Bardi-
ni, .en la mitica Florencia; en
el Museo de Arte de Beijing,
localizado en el "Templo de la
Longevidad", construido en
1577; en la neoyorquina gale-
ria Eleanor Ettinger Chelsea;
en el "World of Art Showcase",
perteneciente a la exposici6n
international de arte. en el Ho-
tel Wynn de Las Vegas, Neva-
da, celebrado entire el 20 y el
22 de diciembre de 2012, don-
de de las 17 obras que exhibi6
todas fueron vendidas.
En los trabajos de Santos
prevalece una distribuci6n
muy acusada de la luz y de,
las sombras. El artist, que
demuestra un especial inte-
res por los tonos ocres, persi-
gue insistimos lo ideal, lo
est6tico, el ennoblecimiento de
la imagen y la pureza. .Espe-
cie de evasi6n de una realidad
nada exenta de imperfeccio-
nes? Efluvio de dicha apre-
ciaci6n es la "Pietd", la obra
de la imagen que ilustra este'
articulo, trabajo que le tom6
aproximadamente tres sema-
nas pintar en un frio invierno
de Estocolmo.
En balance con la escultu-


El 6leo sobre lino "Pieta" (2008), de CUsar Santos, que
integra la colecci6n familiar del artist, procura -y lo logra
augustamente un punto de contact entire las obras de
los grandes maestros del pasado y temas contemporAneos
tratados con la dignidad de los primeros.


ra de Michalengo c6lebre por
registrar la vulnerabilidad de
Cristo que aglomera en si todas
las flaquezas nuestras -, en la
"PietO", de Santos, el pintor
exanime es la figure central,
mientras su esposa y un mo-
delo en calidad de ayudante lo
sostienen en su studio. "Con
este cuadro quise representar-
me como un artist traditional
caido por el peso y el dominion
del arte conceptual y moder-
nista; a quien estd levantando
la nueva generaci6n dej6venes
deseosos de resucitar al oficio
del arte", indica Santos.
"La iluminaci6n proyecta-
da sobre la figure del creador
- enti6ndase la analogia crea-
cionista entire el artifice y Dios
- significa la luz que necesita
un artist para representar al
mundo que lo rodea y resaltar
al mismo tiempo su propia hu-
manidad", manifiesta el pin-
tor. "Mi pintufa no se refiere
a ninguna religion. Aunque
uso la pose y composici6n que
aparecen en las obras religio-
sas del renacimiento, me valgo


del significado de la' palabra
"pieta", en si misma, para indi-
car compasi6n y devoci6n, en
mi caso al arte", afiade.
"En estos filtimos afos ha
habido un renacimiento del
realismo en la pintura, yo ya
dedique afios al studio de,
la teoria y el arte conceptual.
Despues, fui a Italia para
aprender las t6cnicas de los
grandes maestros; quiero ser
el punto de encuentro entire
estos dos mundos y crear pin-
turas actualizadas con temas
de nuestros tiempos pero eje-
cutadas con la dignidad de las
pinturas del pasado", rubrica.
Lo plasmado por Santos
en el lienzo se sabe destino.
Sin dejar de emitir guifios de
verosimilitud, se descubre y
arrebuja en la unisonancia
polif6nica valga el oximoron -
de una sutil parodia, para des-
nudarnos la fantasia del artis-
ta, tal cual creaci6n onirica, o
cuento encantado. Imaginar la
vida como la anhelamos for-
ma parte de nuestras diarias
quimeras al menos-para los
sofiadores -, y en eso radica,
a mi juicio, uno de los legados
conceptuales mas trascenden-
tes del arte de C6sar Santos.
Cada cuadro es para 61, y
consecuentemente para no-
sotros, efugio, mejor dicho,
retomo feliz a lo ancestral, de
manos del virtuosismo pale-
ta de los grandes artists con
'grazia' y, spbre todo, eco de
una emanaci6n est6tica intima
que seduce la voluntad de los
sentidos, a trav6s de la delica-
deza del detalle acabado, del
arte de la figure, refugio atavi-
co de los renacentistas, cimen-
tado con sinceridad present.
Sus lienzos, especialmente
sus numerosos autorretratos,
no desaprovechan el legado
de los recursos expresivos del
arsenal creative de la mitolo-
gia eternizada en su suntuo-
sidad de tradici6n. El propio
pintor se nos present, en
ellos, como dios, semidios -
quiza en su sediciosa -idica
beatifica humanidad, h6roe
redentor, amoroso m6rtir,
en un verosimil horizonte.
Lo imaginative y lo genuino
se abrazan en esa propuesta
abierta, osada, sutil, admira-
ble. Estd en el espectador des-
cifrarla, asirla y deleitarse en
ella.
La pr6xima exposici6n per-
sonal del pintor villaclarefio,
"The Artist's Accomplice (El
c6mplice del artista), serd del
17 de enero al 15 de febrero,
donde se exhibirAn ocho obras
de gran format que abor-
dan el tema del maniqui de
Annigoni. La recepci6n sera el
24 de enero en Oxenberg Fine
Arts, 50 N.E. 29 St., Miami,
Florida 33137.

Acerca.de la pelicula
La cinta cuenta la historic
de Camino (Nerea Camacho),
una nifia de 11 afios educada
en el seno de una familiar del
Opus Dei que sufre una en-
fermedad terminal y que se ve
obligada a enfrentar de forma
repentina y simultAnea dos
hechos nuevos en su vida: la
cercania de la muerte y el des-
cubrimiento del amor.
Su historic est. inspirada
en la vida de Alexia Gonzalez
Barros, una joven de 14 afios
fallecida en 1985 por una en-
fermedad terminal en honor de
santidad, que se encuentra en
process de beatificaci6n.
Es el tercer largometraje de
Javier Fesser ("El milagro de
P. Tinto", "La gran aventura
de Mortadelo y Filem6n"),
quien fue sujeto de fuertes
critics particularmente de
la organizaci6n cat61lica Opus
Dei, quien en a traves de un
comunicado califica a "Cami-
no" como "la radiografia falsa y
manipulada" del mundo.
Para el realizador "la pe-
licula cuestiona a quienes
se empefian en evangelizar


al resto, a quien cree que ha
encontrado la verdad y que
es la finica". Fesser dice: "en
ningCin moment he preten-
dido cuestionar las causes de
beatificaci6n, s6lo investigar en
el universe de esos nifios que
pese a ser los protagonists,
da la impresi6n de que no se
les ha preguntado qu6 sienten,
y que son utilizados mas bien
para dar sentido al discurso
de quienes les rodean". "El
entorno y no ellos son a veces
los que se convierten en pro-
tagonistas".

Ultimos acontecimientos sobre el

debate del control de armas


La escala y naturaleza de
la massacre suscitada el 14
de diciembre 2012 en la es-
cuela primaria Sandy Hook de
Connecticut, puso al control
de armas nuevamente sobre
el tapete, de un modo que
otras tragedies no lo hicieron:
tan s61o en 2012 hubo 13
ataques de este tipo, segfn The
Washington Post.
Hasta el cierre de nuestra
edici6n semanal, conozca usted
los lltimos acontecimientos en
material de control de armas en
nuestro pais:
Domingo 13/1/2013:
David Keene, president de la
Asociaci6n Nacional del Rifle
(NRA, por sus siglas en ingles),
dijo al program de CNN "State
of the Union" que esas
propuestas no serian
aprobadas, a pesar de la.
indignaci6n generalizada
a' raiz de la reciente
matanza en una escuela
en Connecticut debido a
que 6ste consider hay
suficientes legisladores
que apoyan el derecho a
portar armas, establecido
en la Segunda Enmienda
de la Constituci6n de Es-
tados Unidos.
Lunes 14/1/2013:
El Senado de Nueva York
aprob6 una regulaci6n
mas estricta, impulsada dife:
por el gobernador An-
drew Cuomo, sobre el
control de armas en Estados
Unidos, lo que constituy6 la
primera reacci6n legislative a
la massacre de la comunidad
de Newtown, Connecticut. La
legislaci6n fue aprobada por
una abrumadora mayoria de
48 votos a favor y 18 en contra,
y se prev6 que sea pasada sin
contratiempos en la Camara de
Representantes..
La nueva regulaci6n pro-
hibe la venta de cartuchos
de municiones que contienen
mas de siete balas y aumenta
las penas de prisi6n para
algunos crimenes cometidos
con armas de fuego. Ademas
exige que proveedores de ser-
vicios de salud reported a
las autoridades a pacientes
potencialmente peligrosos.
Asimismo, seran obligatorias
las revisiones de antecedentes
penales cada cinco afios para
los poseedores de armamento.
iUn fuerte aplauso para
Nueva YorkI Ejemplo a seguir.
Martes 15/1/2013: El
vicepresidente Joe Biden pre-
sent6 al president Obama sus
recomendaciones para mejorar
la legislaci6n del pais en ma-
teria de control de armas, un
t. rabajo que el mandatario le
encarg6 a raiz de la massacre de
* Newtown, donde hace un mes
un joven mat6 a 26 personas,
entire ellas 20 nifios pequefios,
antes de suicidarse.

Otro caso de violencia con
armas de fuego tuvo lugar
cuando un estudiante del co-
legio privado Stevens Institute
of Business & Arts dispar6 al
director del departamento de
ayuda financiefa de su colegio
y despu6s a si mismo. Ambos
estan en estado critic.
*Miercoles 16/1/2013: El
congresista republican Steve
Stockman amenaza con pro-
mover un juicio politico contra
Barack Obama, si el president
sigue con su ofensiva contra
"el derecho constitutional" de
los estadounidenses de poseer
armas. La iniciativa de Stock-
man podria tener un amplio
apoyo entire los republicans,
pues la consideran como una
violaci6n a la Seguhda En-
mienda a la Constituci6n (se
trata de la parte de la llamada
Carta de Derechos aprobada
el 15 de diciembre de 1791
que estipula el derecho a la

delle sue origini e di cio' che
rappresenta.
Voglfamo parlare di un
piccolo centro nell'entiroterra
siciliano che parla di una
cultural completamente
different a quella che
rappresenta la Sicilia.
Delimitata da alte montagne
e da una ricca cornice di verde,
Piana degli Albanesi si specchia
su uno splendid lago.
Particolarmente
interessante e il tessuto
urbanistico tardo medioevale
del paese con le tipiche fontane
in pietra locale e l'architettura
urbana del centro storico
con case e stradine ancora
pressoche intatte.
Fondata nella second
meta del XV sec., quando, a
seguito dell'invasione turca della
penisola balcanica, gruppi di
profughi albanesi (Arbereshe)
cercarono rifugio nelle vicine
coste dell'Italia meridionale,
Hora e Arbreshevet, dopo cinque
secoli, ha conservato la propria
identity etnico linguistica, .
ed e la pitL important colonia
albanese di Sicilia.
Gli Arbereshe di Piana
hanno attivamente partecipato
alle vicende storiche regional
e nazionali, dal Risorgimento
italiano al movimento dei Fasci
dei Lavoratori (1892-1894).
Importanza di rilievo storico e
politico nazionale ha Portella
della Ginestra, il luogo in cui,
il 10 maggio del 1947, la banda
di Salvatore Giuliano esegui

ricordo vi e stato realizzato

SSILHOU- CETTES

by Emily Carney


So it goes, you can't choose
your family, but you couldn't
have told thit to the late
Bill McBride or his chosen
brother,. Bob Bolt. The two
first encountered each other
on a high school football field.
"We were playing high
school football and Bill was
playing for Leesburg .High
School. Surprisingly, he was
a running back a fullback.
I was a quar-
terback and de-
fensive back.
Leesburg had ba-
sically an offense
that was built
around Bill Mc-
Bride running the
ball.. .when he'd
come inside the
field, since I was
an outside line-
backer, my job
was to tackle him.
"I weighed
about 155 pounds
and he weighed
at least 200. It
was... tough. Very
painful! At his
service, I related .
that pain... still
remember it. It
is sort of one of
those things -
when somebody
i-uns over you
and really hurts
you, you remem-
ber it. He and i
didn't really get to
know each other
at that poin-. .
"It was really, "'-
later when he
and I showed up
at the University
of Florida. We,
joined the same r -
fraternity [Alpha ...-..
Tau Omega] and
shared the same
interest in hand-
ball." The year was 1963. The
two remained friends for 49
years until McBride's pass-
ing in December.
Robert S. Bolt eulogized
McBride at his funeral ser-
vice. "We were like brothers,
for a long time," he said with
emotion. "When Bill and I be-
came friends in. the summer
of 1964, Bill would hang out
at my house a lot in Sanford.
He got to know my dad. Bill's
dad wasn't a strong father fig-
ure to him... Bill was able to
identify with my father, who
was a strong father figure.
They developed a very close
relationship for a long period
of time. Bill looked up to my
dad quite a bit and Dad liked
Bill, of course." Bolt's eulogy
hinted at his own life story
and underscored McBride's
attraction to his family. "Let
me show you my family... I'm
very proud of them," Bolt said,
pointing to a wall of photos,
many including McBride.
Bolt is a founding share-
holder of Barnett Bolt Kirk-
wood Long & McBride, a
Tampa law firm regularly rec-
ognized in Best Lawyers, Cor-
porate Counsel and by Martin-
dale-Hubbell. In his career, he
has served as the firm's chair-'
man and CEO and as corpo-
rations' outside general coun-
sel, while also contributing
to the community.. However,
through all of his successes,
he.never looks forward with-
out revisiting his roots.
Bolt's father, the late Ma-
rine Lieutenant Colonel (Ret.)
John "Jack" F. Bolt, was a
widely-renowned World War
II and Korean War hero. "My
dad was a very famous fighter
pilot. He flew with Gregory
[Pappy] Boyington in the Sol-
omon Islands campaign in


World War II. He was an ace
he was one of Boyington's si
aces," he related. A flying ac
is a pilot recognized as havin
shot down several enemy mil
tary aircraft.
"He stayed in the Marin
Corps for 20 years and whe
the Korean War came, Da
was one of the very, very fe
non-Air Force pilots allowed t
fly with the Air Force in Korea


Robert S. Bo


5Ot3


[y dad was a very courageous
He instilled that."
He made the most of it h(
became a jet ace in the Kore
arn War. To this day, my father
is the only naval aviator wh
was an ace in two wars ari
he is the only Marine jet ac
in history. That will probab]
always be the case, because
it's very difficult to be an ac
again, because the type of a
warfare now isn't very condu
cive to becoming an ace. H
will probably forever hold tha
distinction."
His mother, Dorothy ("Do
tie") was a homemaker wh
raised Robert and his sister
Barbara. Jack Bolt's F-86 Sa
bre, which he flew in combat
missions during the Korea
War, was named "Darlin
Dottie" after his wife. His so
keeps a model of this aircra
in his office.
McBride found an earl
mentor in the elder Bolt. "Da
was a mentor in the sens
that he was a Marine. Thos
guys have a strong sens
of personality. He was a le
gitimate war hero. When Bi
joined the Marines, he wen
to Quantico, where mos
Marines go to school to b1
trained. When you're an off
cer candidate. going through
Quantico, you're required t
learn about famous Marines
My dad was one of them. Bi
was just blown away by tha
There was the guy he kne'
already, quite well. Dad wa
a pretty strong figure in Bill
life for a long time."
The war hero also figure
pretty strongly in his son's life
as well. "There is no question
about my father's influence
My father was an excellent
hunter that sort of tied in t
him being a fighter pilot. To 1
a great fighter pilot, you haw
to have a hunter instinct. H


- got that from his dad. I have
ix a very strong sense of adven-
:e ture, which is entirely attrib-
ig utable to my father. My dad
i- was a very courageous man.
He instilled that."
le Bolt wanted to follow in
n his father's footsteps and
.d become a military pilot, but
w was thwarted by his eyesight.
:o He then decided to pursue
a. his ambition of practicing
law and entered
the University
of Florida's Law
School. He was-
already very fa-
miliar with one
of his fellow stu-
dents. "Dad and
I ended up going
to law school to-
gether. He retired
when I was a ris-
ing senior in high
school.
"I ended up go-
ing to law school
first in 1967
and then he de-
S -. cided. after all
i Y these years, he
alwa ys wanted to
'- be a lawyer. He
started after me.
I went into the
Army to satisfy
my military obli-
gation and then
he and I caught
up together. He
graduated a little
bit ahead of me,
but he and I were
.in lav- school to-
gether for about a
year and a half.
"It was great.
He and I loved to
play handball to-
gether. We were
the law school
Is man. champions on
the handball
court...we were
le actually interviewed by the
e- Florida Alligator, the student
er newspaper in Gainesville,
Lo with pictures and so forth. I
fd have the article, still," he said
:e proudly. Bolt keeps an enve-
ly lope full of clippings about his
ie father's life and career close to
e him in his office. "He was first
ir an assistant dean at the Uni-
i- versity of Florida Law School.
le He did that for a year or two,
at but he did not find that satis-
'fying.. .he wanted to be a prac-
t-. titioner. So he went to New
10 Smyrna Beach. He practiced
r, law there for almost 30 -years.
a- The airport at New Smyrna
at Beach is named after him."
n Following law school, Bolt
ig attended New York University,
n finishing a graduate tax pro-
ft gram in 1972. "I was fortunate
enough to get good grades and
ly was able to get a good job at
id the United States Tax Court
ie in Washington, D.C. It was a
se good job, if you wanted to be
se a tax lawyer," he reported. Af-
e- ter spending two years in the
11 nation's capital, he came back
it to Florida and ended up work-
st ing with another Florida icon.
)e "I then got a job with Hugh
i- Culverhouse. Before he was
h the first owner of the Tampa
to Bay Buccaneers, he had a
s. very fine tax law firm based
ill in Jacksonville and Miami. I
t! worked in the Jacksonville of-
w fice as a tax litigator for Mr.
is Culverhouse."
's "I have very clear memo-
ries of him. He and I worked
;d a very famous case together...
e, 'Bebe' Rebozo was the target
n of a Watergate investigation.
e. Basically, our law firm was
it engaged to represent Mr. Re-
to bozo. Hugh handled the case
>e and I was a baby lawyer. I
re worked on the case for about
[e a year-and-a-half, before I got


to come down here. I got to
know Mr. Culverhouse very
well during that time period...
we had a very friendly rela-
tionship .and I looked up to'
him a lot."
Another law school friend-
ship led Bolt to Tampa. "When
I was in law school, I got to be
friends with Les Barnett, my
current partner. Les and my
father were friends as well.
Les and I decided to go to NYU
together. Back in those days,
they'd assign you study car-
rels according to alphabetical
order. So it was 'Barnett and
Bolt.' Les and I were study-
ing in the basement of the
NYU law school...we studied
very hard, all the time, most
of the time right next to each
other when we weren't going
to classes. We noticed when
the weekends came, we'd find
ourselves out socializing with
our, wives. We deduced that
we must like each other!" he
said with a laugh.
"We resolved then that we
were friends. I went, to the
tax court and he went to the
Culverhouse firm in Miami.
He married a gal from Tam-
pa. Long story made short -
he ended up moving back to
Tampa and setting up a prac-
tice here, but we kept up our
relationship. After he went out
on his own in Tampa in 1975,
he was doing very well and he
said, 'Come on down. Let's do
this together.' So I came down
and we opened up our firm in
January 1976.. It's been 37
years... this month is the anni-
versary of our firm." The firm
has since expanded to its cur-
rent incarnation, Barnett Bolt
Kirkwood Long & McBride.
"In February 1979, I got my
first big break. I was hired by
Kash N' Karry Food Stores,
which is now Sweetbay. I
handled some litigation for
them and we had a very good
outcome. Based on that, they
continued to hire me to do
things for them," Bolt .said. In
1988, Bolt became the super-
market chain's general coun-
sel, fulfilling that position un-
til 1997. In his career, he has
also served as general counsel
for Sports & Recreation, Inc.
(formerly. Jumbo Sports, Inc.)
and Minyard Food Stores in
Dallas, Texas.
At age. 67, Bolt shows no
signs of slowing down. He is
a licensed private pilot, with
over 3,400 general aviation


hours, and an avid diver. "Be-
tween the flying, which we" do
all the time, and the diving, we
love to deep-sea fish. I have a
boat that I keep in Key West...
Every year, we have our fam-
ily dive team and. we get to-
. gether down in the Keys," he
enthused. He is also active at
First Presbyterian Church in
Brandon with his wife, Nancy.
His two adult daughters,
Blair and Kristen, take after
their father, just as he took af-
ter his: "My oldest is now run-
ning triathlons and her hus-
band is a Navy SEAL... so you
get- the picture! They're very
outdoorsy people. My young-
est her fun thing to do is to
get with her husband, put a
backpack on, go into the wil-
derness in Washington State
and camp in the most remote
places for a week. She's off the
charts in her sense of adven-
ture. They're both like that...
they both love to dive," he said
with pride. Bolt also has two
stepchildren and five grand-
children.
Bolt and his wife also give
back to the community. "My
wife and I are very active in
our church. We go to the
First Presbyterian Church in
Brandon... for example, my
wife started out with Meals on
Wheels. From that, she met
some homeless people. She
thought up the idea of doing
Christmas for these homeless
people...there were 15 men
and seven women. This year,
she put together Christmas
presents for all 22 of them. We
went out and delivered those
the Friday before Christmas."
His famous father was de-
scribed as a "workaholic."
Does Bolt ever see himself
retiring? His answer is em-
phatic: "I'm very, very busy.
I'm blessed with a lot of really,
really good clients. In fact,
generallyspeaking, I.work for
my friends. I'm so fortunate
to work for clients who are
legitimately my friends. I like
them very much, I like help-
ing them and I still get paid
to do it. Why would you give
that-up? I probably have the
world's greatest job! I think
I've come to terms with that.
Just because other people
are retiring at my age, I don't
know if that makes sense for
me, because this is what I en-
joy doing." Bolt's family influ-
ence clearly runs deep.

tarnished. Lawyers offer opinions,
some board members accept those
opinions as gospel and some believe
it's a conspiracy. Some lawyers take
criticism with a grain of salt, others
as an attack.
We haven't agreed with Tom
Gonzalez on everything we've
even been on his wrong side a time
or two but he should be applauded
for his long public service to the
Board. It is a thankless job. He has
offered our schools high-quality
representation at a more than fair
price. He has earned our respect.
***** *
Even in his death, Angelo Perez
is working to preserve our historic
clubs. The Italian Club, the Cuban
Club and Centro Asturiano received
$1,000 each and the Sociedad La
Union Marti-Maceo received $500
as a disbursement of donations
made in memory of Dr. Perez.
The donations are a touching
tribute to a man's passion to leave
his part of the world, Ybor City, a
little better than he found it.

When a publisher mailed us a
book' about cemeteries, we won-
dered if somehow it was apparent
that we consider ourselves cem-
etery aficionados.
Was it common knowledge that
we spent half a day at the Cemen-
terio de Crist6bal Col6n in Havana
and returned with at least one
hundred photos of its mausoleums
and headstones?
Did they know we visited cem-
eteries in Savannah, Tallahassee
and the ones featured in the book?
Whether on purpose or just by
happenstance, the advance copy
of Tampa's Historic Cemeteries by
Arcadia Publishing fell into loving
hands. The book by Shelby Jean
Roberson Bender and Elizabeth
Laramie Dunham reveals how the
famous and common have memori-
alized their loved ones' passing in
stone. The selections show wealth,
comedy, humility and grandeur.
The book should ignite readers'
curiosity to travel to the sites to see
what didn't make the cut.
We found great interest in what
did make the cut, such as the great
Ildebrando Zacchini, inventor of the
human cannonball act, the Maas
mausoleum, the slaves buried in
Oaklawn and all the images of the
beautiful L'Unione Italiana Cem-
etery. The book covers the gambit
of our diversity and segregation in
death.
Tampa's Historic Cemeteries
goes on sale Monday at local re-
tailers and online book stores for
$21.99. You can order it straight

Public Policy Polling released re-
sults verifying what we've been say-
ing. Almost any Democrat can beat
failed Governor Rick Scott. Here
are the numbers when it's Demo-
crats versus Rick Scott Charlie
Crist, 53 percent to 39 percent; Alex
Sink, 47 percent to 40 percent; Deb-
bie Wasserman Schultz, 44 percent
to 42 percent; and Pam Iorio, 43
percent to 39 percent.
The only two Democrats who
fall short have almost no name
recognition, but even they come
close to beating mega-rich Rick
Scott Buddy Dyer versus Scott,
37 percent to 41 percent; and Nan
Rich, 37 percent to 41 percent.
While, at the moment, Char-


lie Crist is the most liked of the
above-mentioned Democrats with
all the voters, he is also the most
disliked his unfavorable number
is 38 percent, followed by Debbie
Wasserman Schultz at 36 percent.
It's curious that out of the better-
known Democrats only Wasserman
Schultz is more disliked than liked.
She's as upside-down as a South
Florida home mortgage, with 30
percent favorable to 36 unfavor-
able. Of course, Governor Rick Scott
suffers a real personality crisis. It's
so bad that he failed to win over
his first dog, Reagan, who acted
out in order to get away from his
Lord Voldemort-lookalike master.
A whopping 57 percent disapprove
of Scott's performance, while 33
percent approve.
Charlie Crist boosters, such as
some from across the Bay, will point
out that the Democrats polled favor
Crist over other Democrats. Crist's
favorable number is 73 percent.
Alex Sink.is next, with 53 percent.
Sink boosters like us (we know,
respect and like her, plus she's been
a Democrat with Democratic values
all her life) will point out this poll
fails to represent the demographic
of an off-year primary and the skew
favors Crist. The old are underrep-
resented compared to the young.
Older Democrats will face confusion
over Republican-Independent-now
Democrat Charlie. We will also note
Ms. Sink is the least disliked among
the Democrats polled, with only 11
percent unfavorable, while Crist is
the most disliked with 17 percent.

We hear School Board Member
.Dr. Stacy White is considering run-
ning for Al Higginbotham's East
Hillsborough County Commission
seat. Higginbotham is talking about
running for a countywide seat.

The chair of the Thirteenth
Circuit Judicial Nominating Com-
mission, J. Carter Anderson, is
announcing two judicial vacancies
in Hillsborough County. One on the
Circuit bench was created when
Judge Daniel Sleet was elevated to
the District Court of Appeal and one
on the County bench was left open
by the appointment of Judge Matt
Lucas to the Circuit Court.,
Applications for both seats are
due on February 5.

Pam Iorio is hoping to be out of
a job soon. She is optimistic her
'successor to lead the Children's
Board of Hillsborough County will
be selected in March.
The job is being arranged a little
differently than when Luanne Pan-
acek was CEO. First the position
won't be CEO; it will be renamed
executive director. Second, the price
will come down. The new salary
range is $115,000 to $140,000.
The Board is looking for a leader.
Applicants don't need to have expe-
rience in education, social services
or children's issues. None of that
is mentioned in the description of
the ideal candidate, which reads,
"...will be a strong, proven leader
with exceptional administrative,
communication, interpersonal and
relationship-building skills. The
select candidate will be politically
astute with an open management
style that is collaborative, team-
oriented, and inspires growth and
employee development."
The next leader of the Children's
Board will need to be equipped to
help save the Board from extinc-
tion. The future of this agency


is coming up for a public vote in
2016. The agency needs to repair
its image, create passionate com-
munity partners and communicate
its mission.
Call 850-391-0000 if you'd like
more information about applying.

Five terms have expired on the
Children's Board and the governor
has yet to name new members.
That's not necessarily a bad thing.
Most are hoping the governor
will hold off until. this board has
conducted interviews and named
a new executive director. Current
CEO Pam Iorio has communicated
that with the governor's office.
The extra time in this appoint-
ment process will hopefully lead
to more appointees. Currently the
governor has five applicants for
five posts. They are Christopher
Brown, Susan Schneider, Thomas
McLean, Gregory Brown and Lynne
V. Heuvel. The first two are seeking
reappointment.
Board Members Pete Edwards',
John Evon's and Valerie Hubbard-
Goddard's terms have expired:
They are not seeking reappoint-
ment, but will serve until they are
replaced by the governor.
It would be nice if some Hispan-
ics would step forward to volunteer
for this important public service. Of
all the local boards, the Children's
Board needs diversity.

Jack Espinosa, a man who has
lived in America for much of its
history, will teach a course on
American History at the Centro
Asturiano as part of USF's.Osher
Lifelong Learning Institute.
Those who don't want to stop
learning can register for a class
on a variety of subjects taught by
interesting and sometimes quirky
people like Jack Espinosa. His class
will begin January 24, from 10
a.m. to noon and will be held each
Thursday for eight weeks.
To register for this class or to
learn about others, call 974-5848.
Fees are $40 for six two-hour
weekly classes or $50 for eight.

Everyone took credit for adding
international flights from Tampa
to Cuba 17 months ago when in
reality, it was mostly the Cuban
government that funneled the busi-
ness to Tampa.
Now, we are losing two of those
flights and people are blaming it on
market forces. Politics are the real
force behind the failure as well as
the lack of effort by our leaders to
find clients for the flights in a coun-
try where the government won't
let all people travel and we're not


talking about Cuba.
We have invested well over
half-a-million in public dollars and
discounted fees promoting flights
to Switzerland. The Cuban flights
only got a few thousand to promote
the inaugural flight. This communi-
ty needs to help promote Tampa as
a hub to Cuba. We are still bleeding
local travelers from Central Florida
to Miami. Local advertising could
help develop the Central Florida
market better.
Our local chamber, tourist agen-
cy and the airport could also help
lure the cultural and educational
trips coming from the Northeast
and Midwest to use Tampa instead
of Miami as their gateway to Cuba.
The National Geographic Soci-
ety, the Smithsonian and others
should be approached by Tampa to
lure its Cuban cultural immersion
tours to use us. We could develop
local programs to start their Cuba
adventure here with a Tampa-Jos6
Marti trail and tours to help un-
derstand the historic relationship
between the U.S. and Cuba.
To really solve the problem,
we need to push for ending the
travel embargo. The flights won't be
market-driven until we get our gov-
ernment out of our vacation plans.
This area has failed to speak with
a unified voice to end the embargo.
If this area doesn't get more in-
volved, expect to lose more flights
to Cuba.

Tampa lost one of its classiest cit-
izens to ever practice law with the
passing of William Reece Smith, Jr.
Mr. Smith's life and the way he
practiced law was the rebuttal to
every bad lawyer joke ever writ-
ten. He used his skill and power
for good.
He demanded fairness, equality
and professionalism.
He also mentored young lawyers
and improved his profession.
Mr. Smith was principled and
always a gentleman. We are better
to have known him.
Dr. Juan M. "El Chino" Young
passed away at a young 62. His
brother-in-law, Judge Ralph Stod-
dard, described him as 100 percent
Cuban and 100 percent American.
He was very proud of his heritage
and birthplace in Pinar del Rio,
as well as his adopted country.
He was active in the community,
a good family man and successful
in his professional life. He was a
great example of realization of the
American Dream.

Accountability and Rodgers Middle


. As she should, Hillsbor-
ough County School Super-
intendent MaryEllen Elia is
demanding accountability in
that tragic drowning death of a
special-needs student at Rod-
gers Middle School. That's a
given. To date, that has meant
oversight scrutiny some fir-
ings and some disciplining of
on-site administrators.
But. it also means some-
thing else that has gone un-
acknowledged. When ad-
dressing such a tragedy and
invoking the catch-all, good
name of "accountability" the
one thing you can't chance is
anything that fosters collat-
eral damage.
That's what is risked with
Flia's recommendation that
Rodgers' principal and as-
sistant principal be demoted
for not being responsive to
pre-tragedy reports that aides
were less than attentive to
their special-needs students.
It appears the assistant prin-
cipal will be back in the class-
room while contesting the de-
motion.
This is an insult and an af-
front.
It's an insult to all teachers.
The message: "This is what we
do with someone found want-
ing at the next level. We pun-
ish them by reducing them to
your rank that of teacher."
As a former teacher, I'd be livid
that my immediate workplace
and professional status were
fitting punishment fodder. It's
likely that whatever remained
of fragile staff morale in the
aftermath of a tragic death is
now history.
It's also an affront to par-
ents. The message: "In our
system, we demote back to,
the. classroom to discipline
an administrator. If it's your
child who's inevitably impact-
ed, well, thanks for taking one


for the team." More than im-
plied: "These are profession-
als and, however disgruntled,
they'll hopefully be successful
in sublimating their personal
sense of injustice and outrage
already manifested in legal ac-
tion by the Rodgers' assistant
principal. Moreover, you're
merely parents. The school
year will be over by June.
What's another five months,
tops?"
Such cavalier treatment
smacks of yet another bogus
education / business- sector
analogy. But busting a fore-
man back to the assembly
line is not analogous to send-
ing an administrator back to
the classroom. Unless, that is,
it's fair to equate widgets with
children.
*Shock Jock Slop
If ever there were a waste of
the legal system's time, good
offices and personnel, it is our
current high-profile, shock
jock defamation trial. Todd
"MJ" Schnitt is suing Bubba
the Love Sponge Clem for
defamation. Or is it the other
way around? Who cares? The
case has been frothing for
five years, and now it's finally
gross-out game on.
Clem would appear to have
a winnable case. Schnitt's a
public figure, there was, ar-
guably, no malice intended,
and ostensibly defamatory
statements can often be char-
acterized as "pure opinions,
rhetorical exaggeration or 'hy-
perbole that reasonable lis-
teners would not consider to
be true."
Just one caveat. That part
about "reasonable" listeners.
Judicious Approach
Among the cases before
the Supreme Court this term
is one particularly sticky one:
warrantless blood tests in DUI
- cases. In the abstract, there's


not a lot of sentiment for let-
ting police routinely order up
needles for unwilling drunk-
driving suspects. The Missouri
Supreme Court has already
upheld a lower court's order
that threw out the coerced re-
sults from an impaired driver.
It cited the Constitutional pro-
hibition against unreasonable
searches and seizures.
But in the real world, more
than 10,000 people die each
year in this country one ev-
ery 51 minutes from crashes
involving alcohol-impaired
drivers. And any delay in test-
ing a suspect's blood-alcohol
content allows the alcohol to
dissipate in the blood. It's 'a
de facto form of evidence de-
struction. Warrantless blood
testing is seen as a law en-
forcement tool for expediting
drunk-driving detection and
deterrence and timing is
critical with lives at stake.
While a decision won't be
announced until the summer,
a compromising approach em-
anated from, yes, Justice An-
tonin Scalia. "Why shouldn't
that determination be made
case by case," he asked. "And
if it would have taken too long,
then it's okay without a war-
rant. If it wouldn't have taken
that long, it's bad."
Obviously a lot rides on the
answer.-
United States of Violence
Vice President Joe
Biden, bless his heart, has
been on the case trying to
forge some kind of meaningful
gun-control consensus from a
disparate array of interests. In
this gun-and-violence-enam-
ored culture, that was a Si-
syphean task. That he would
fall short of what America re-
ally needs and deserves is no
surprise. But you can bet he
employed every personality
feint and across-the-Senate-


aisle gambit in his consider-
able repertoire. Even, obvi-
ously, a few vintage, malaprop
metaphors. Last weekend he
conceded that there was "no
silver bullet" on the gun is-
sue before adding that he was
"shooting for Tuesday" to get
his gun-policy recommenda-
tions to the president.
One certifiable result of
the Newtown massacre and
resultant debate over gun
violence: According to the
National Rifle Association,
another 100,000 members
joined up last month. Invari-
ably the NRA's numbers gin
up in the context of any se-
rious talk about gun-control
legislation. Membership now
stands at about 4.1 million.
Here's a quote, steeped in
smug, self-righteous self-sat-
isfaction, offered up by NRA
president David Keene over
the weekend on CNN's State
of the Union: "I would say that
the likelihood is that they are
not going to be able to get an
assault weapons ban through
this Congress." He then emo-
tionally high-fived himself.
Some subjects, notably
ones with common-sense,
life-and-death ramifications
- ASSAULT WEAPONS! just
transcend civil, reasoned dis-
sent. What the hell is the
matter with these friggin' ass-
hats?
Here's something else I
just can't shake. When I see
the PSA that features the
mother of the 6-year-old who
was killed by James Holmes
last summer in that Aurora,
Colo., movie theater, I don't
just think crazed assault-gun
murderer and innocent lives
lost. I also still think, why was
a 6-year-old girl at a mid-
night showing of the violently
hip The Dark Knight Rises?
Indeed, gratuitous violence
in America is a multi-layered,
societal contagion.
In Defense Of Hagel
Chuck Hagel Lindsey
Graham, Rick Santorum, Wil-
liam Kristol, Sheldon Adelson
and hold-out neo-cons not-
withstanding will be the next
Secretary of Defense. In all of
American history only nine
presidential cabinet nominees
have ever been rejected. Only
three in the 20th century.
The last one was John Tower,
President George H.W. Bush's
1989 nominee for secretary of
defense. He' was done in by
allegations of "drunkenness,
womanizing and sharing se-
cret insights into U.S.-Soviet
arms negotiations .with de-
fense contractors." And still
the (Democratic majority)
Senate vote was close: 53-47.
Hagel's main detractors
find the decorated Vietnam
vet and former Republican
senator from Nebraska in-
sufficiently hawkish. Specifi-
cally, being against the Iraq
war, candid about Pentagon
bloat, less than gung-ho
about pre-emptive strikes on
Iran, realistic about Israel's
American lobbying efforts and
unimpressed by U.S.. sanc-
tions against Cuba. None of
which will carry the day for


the hard-line right.
Criticism from the left is
over the 1998 "openly, ag-
gressively gay" insult he used
to describe an ambassado-
rial nominee. He. has since
apologized while underscor-
ing his support of gay troops
and their families. It will come
up at his hearing, but the gay
community seems content to
take him at his word that his
thinking, like a lot of others,
has evolved.
Ultimately, political play-
ers are judged by the adver-
saries they keep. So, thanks
again, discredited neo-cons.
The Rummy-Cheney-Wolfow-
itz-Perle-Feith-Abrams crowd
- and those who miss them
and their Weapons-of-Mass-
Distortion invasion likely
want John Bolton at the Pen-
tagon and probably pine away
for Curtis LeMay. They can't
be rehabbed. It won't matter.
What matters is that Chuck
Hagel, 66, knows, among oth-
er things, the lessons of Viet-
nam and Iraq. Increasingly,
so do most Americans who
would recognize a neo-con job
the second time around.
Odd Man In
Colin Powell. How is he still
in the Republican Party?
Quoteworthy
"Europe has more respon-
sibility for its own security,
and Germany has to step up
to that, particularly consid-
ering its new economic pow-
er in Europe." Constanze
Stelzenmuller, senior fellow
at the Berlin-based German
Marshall Fund.
"We are not a deadbeat
nation." President Barack
Obama.
"Ultimately, parties tend
to be defined by their most
visible personalities." Mitch
Daniels, former Republican
governor of Indiana.
"House Republicans have
just enough real power to
raise conservative expecta-
tions but not nearly enough to
bend a liberal president, and
a Democratic Senate to their
will." Ross Douthat, New
York Times.
"The banks will not get
this country in trouble; I guar-
antee it." Warren Buffett.
"As the federal govern-
ment becomes a health care
state, there will have to be a.
generation of defense cuts
that overwhelm anything
in recent history." David
Brooks, New York Times.
"I'm a hunter. Believe in
Second Amendment- rights.
But you know what? I don't
need an assault weapon to
shoot a duck. And I think
they ought to be banned, and
I think we need to put a ban
on the amount of shells you
can carry in a magazine, and
I think we have to strengthen
our background checks." -
Rep. -Rick Nolan, D-Minn.
"Biden did for the presi-
dent on Capitol Hill what
J.F.K. was always too wary to
let the experienced L.B.J. do
for him."
Presidential historian Mi-
chael Beschloss.

I hate the cold.
I have no reason to like it. I
do not ski. I do not snowboard.
I do not play hockey. I do not
like wearingjackets or scarves.
I do not like mahmade heat.
I enjoy going to the beach or
pool, wearing flip-flops and
shorts and running the .air
conditioner year round; I love
manmade cold (figure that
out). I may have been born
and raised in New Jersey, but
I was meant to live in Florida.
Our first day in New
Jersey for our Christmas
visit reminded me how lucky
I am to have moved out of
New Jersey. If I hated living
in the cold fulltime as a kid,
I would have hated it more as
a parent. Why? BECAUSE IT
IS A PAIN IN THE BUTT TO
BUNDLE THE KIDS!
Something as simple as
driving three blocks to go to
a restaurant for dinner was
a production. In Tampa, we
have been known to run the
kids into the car half dressed,
having them put their shoes
and sometimes shirts on in
the car when we are in a rush.
In New Jersey, in that bitter
cold, not only can you not rush
them into the.car half dressed,
you need to bundle them up
'in extra layers coats, hats,
gloves, boots and scarves.
Since the kids have never
dressed in such attire, we. had
to help them; it took each kid
an easy five to 10 minutes to
get dressed and while one was
getting ready the other two
would disappear, beginning
an impromptu game of hide
and seek. It was hell on ice!
And, just as ALWAYS happens
in the movies, as soon as they
were. all bundled, they each
had to pee! YES,. I FAILED
TO KEEP MY COOL AS
PROMISED AND SCREAMED
A FEW TIMES! DO YOU HAVE
A PROBLEM WITH THAT?!?!
Anyway, as stressful as the
bundling was, I have to admit
I am glad we took the kids
to New Jersey in the winter
because doing so allowed
them to experience things
that they never could have in
Florida.
On our first night in New
Jersey, Christmas Eve, it
snowed. For weeks leading up
to the trip, our 7-year-old was
telling everyone who would
listen that he was going to
New Jersey for Christmas and
that he was going to have a
snowball fight. I was freaked!-
He was so consumed with this
thought that even if he met
Santa himself the trip would
have been a letdown if he did
not see snow. As we sat at
dinner on Christmas Eve, my
nerves still shot from getting
the kids into their winter gear,
we looked out the window and
saw the snowflakes floating to
the ground. The kids giggled
with glee and could not wait to
get home to throw snowballs.
Unfortunately, it began to rain
as we left for home freezing
cold rain, typical New Jersey
weather. I could not allow the
kids outside in such weather.
So, being the greatest father
of all time, I had the kids
wait in my parents' garage
as I collected snow in the
yard, brought it back into the
garage and allowed them to
throw snowballs at me with
ONE rule do not aim for my
groin. You can guess what
they aimed for. Damn kids.
Two days later was a BIG
day. First, I took them to see
their first ever frozen lake.
They marveled as they tossed
rocks that bounced off the
lake's cold surface and I lost


my voice yelling at. them over
and over and over and over
and over and over and over
and over and over again to
PLEASE not get so close to
the lake because if they. fall
in they will have to spend
the rest of their vacation in
the hospital. Of course, they
never listened and I almost
had -to spend the rest of my
vacation in the hospital with
a heart attack. And people
wonder why parents drink so
much.
Following that anxiety-
inducing fun, we decided to
take it up a notch by going ice
skating at a nearby rink. This
plan had multiple flaws:
1. We took my oldest
nephew with us, meaning we
had three kids (Ben obviously
did not come) and only two
- adults.
2. None of the kids could
skate.
3.1 cannot skate.
4. All of this meant we
had three kids and one adult
who could not skate with one
(Amy) who could.
5. Somehow, even though I
cannot skate, I ended up with
two kids while Amy had just
one.
I don't think I need to waste
too many words to paint. a
picture of what it looked like
as a grown man wobbled
around the ice with two kids
clinging to his arms. I did not
fall ONCE, much to Amy's
chagrin; she was filming me
with her cell phone hoping I
would do so. This leads to two
questions:
1. Why is she so mean?
2. If she could skate with
one kid hanging on her while
filming me, why didn't she
take two kids?
Luckily, our 3-year-old
and my nephew both bowed
out after just 30 minutes and
decided to sit at the snack bar
and eat chips rather than risk
eating ice, leaving two adults
with one child our 7-year-
old. Ice skating was his idea.
He was the one who bugged
us to take him skating in the
same manner the mean little
red haired child told Bugs
Bunny he wanted an Easter
Egg. If he had given up, I would
have been disappointed. I do
not want. a child who gives
up on something he wanted
to do so badly as soon as he
realizes how hard it is. I can
]honestly write I had never
been prouder of him. He never
once said Uncle. No matter
how many times he fell, no
matter how much pain he was
in, he kept scraping himself
off the ice to give it another
go. After close to two-dozen
close calls with concussions,
he actually skated across the
entire ice rink on his own.
Then, on the way home
from- the ice skating rink, we
saw 12 deer in my parents'
neighborhood, which the kids
thought were Santa's reindeer
taking a break before they
headed back to the North Pole.
"This was the best week
ever!" exclaimed our 7-year-
old as he recounted the many
things he did and saw that
were unique.
I will always hate the cold.
That will never change. But
I loved how much the kids
loved it.
Of course, when we
returned to Florida and the
warm sunshine hit our faces,
the 7-year-old said, "It feels
good to be home where it is
warm."
Amen to that.

oakhammocks, river swamps
and cypress ponds.
On Friday, November' 16,
2012, during the second spe-
cial opportunity archery hunt
at Green Swamp West, Her-
nandez was alone, walking
in the beautiful wildlife man-
agement area to find a good
spot for his afternoon hunt.
In the late morning, he heard
a faint disturbance about 50
yards away. As any curious
hunter would do, he checked
the wind in order to avoid
scent detection. After silently
walking a short distance, he
spotted a small pig perceived
to be around 40 pounds. He
thought how good his moth-
er's lechon '(roasted pig) is
and how easily it would be to
carry the small pig back to his
truck. Deep in the swamp, his
vehicle was parked about 1.5
miles away at this point. It
is important to remember on
public state land you are not
allowed to drive vehicles off
the main roads.
Upon deciding the hog
was his intended target, he
continued a cautious stalk
to within bow range. During
the few tense minutes it took
Hernandez to close the gap,
he realized that there were in
fact eight wild hogs rooting up
the ground. The group moved
into a small pine tree patch


After a few tense min-
-utes of tracking, Hernandez
found his broken arrow and
the dead hog about 50 yards
from where he had been shot.
He then realized the hog was
much bigger than originally
thought. He estimated it to be
1851bs. At that point, the re-
ality of the backbreaking, ex-
hausting work to extricate the
monster hog out of the woods
became reality. "I quickly had
a feeling of defeat and waste-
fulness as I could barely move

In Context
By Doris Weatherford


Congresswoman Kathy
Castor recently held a press
conference at the immigrant
statue in Ybor's Centennial
Park to introduce her ideas
for immigration reform. Once
again, our hometown girl
earns kudos for leadership
in contrast to most of her
colleagues who prefer simply
standing in the mud.
Immigration is .a subject
dear to my heart because my
first book was on it. Let me
tell you how that came about.
I was teaching high school
in suburban Boston, while my
husband finished his doctor-
ate at Harvard. The school's
salary schedule offered a sig-
nificant raise if I took one
more graduate course, so I
enrolled in a class on immi-
gration at Harvard during the
summer of 1969.
The professor, of course,
was one of the world's top
experts. One day he stated
as fact that men adjusted to
America faster than women;
that women were more apt to
get homesick, remain unas-
similated, and want to return.
Young and impolitic as I was,
I challenged him:. What about
women like my Norwegian and
German grandmothers, who
got jobs in American homes?
Wouldn't they learn from the
inside what Americans ate
and wore and how they lived?
Wouldn't they learn .the new
language and customs faster
than, say, Slavs in the steel
mills with other Slavs or Irish-
men building railroads with
other Irishmen?
He looked at me (or at least,
I felt as though he looked at
me) as though he thought I
was crazy. After class, I went
over to Widener Library to
check out something oh immi-
grant women. Except for the
Library of Congress, it is the
biggest library in the world,
but I could not find the book I
had in mind. Widener offered


numerous things on some
aspects of immigrant women
in some places or times, but
there was no inclusive, gen-
eral book that simply spelled
out their story.
Other aspects of life got in
the way after moving to Flor-
ida in 1972, so almost two
decades passed before For-
eign and Female: Immigrant
Women in America, 1840-
1930 was published in 1986.
A revised and expanded ver-
sion came out in 1995, and
you still can buy it online. Al-
though my aim was to explore
the lives of immigrant women,
the thing about writing wom-
en's history is that one has
to learn traditional male-ori-
ented history before going on
to the specialty so I began
the book's introduction with a
general chronology. For con-
text in today's debate on im-
migration:.
During the six decades
between the American Revo-
lution and 1840, only about
850,000 immigrants came to
the new nation but almost
1.4 million arrived in the tu-
multuous decade of the 1840s
alone. Most fled from Ireland,
where, a potato blight meant
starvation, but hunger ri-
ots also were widespread in
German provinces. That and
other conditions caused rebel-
lions from Poland to the Ital-
ian peninsula in 1848, and
fleeing revolutionaries headed
for America.
Steamships replaced sail-
ing ships by the 1850s, and
nearly 2.6 million Europeans,
most of them British, German,
or Scandinavian, came in the
decade prior to the Civil War.
The war of course slowed the
stream especially as male
"newcorfers found themselves
drafted to potentially die in a
conflict that meant nothing to
them but despite the war,
over two million immigrants
arrived in the 1860s.


Tune in Friday nights at 8:30!

panel of diverse political insiders

know, dialogue that matters to you.

The 1870s saw the flow
return to nearly as high as it
was in the 1850s, and it more
than doubled in the 1880s,
with over 4.7 million newcom-
ers. For the first time, more
than a million of the 1880s
immigrants' were from cen-
tral as opposed to northern
Europe, and the numbers of
eastern and southern Euro-
peans would continue to rise.
A serious depression in 1893
caused a drop to 3.6 million in
the 1890s, but the following
decade saw the peak: over 8
million arrived between 1901
and 1910. A million came
just in 1907. They joined a
US population of about 76
million, giving that era a far
higher foreign-born popula-
tion percentage than today.
World War I almost halved
the next decade's numbers
to 4.4 million, but when the
war ended in 1918, so many
Europeans still were eager to
come that Congress enacted
quotas in 1920 and 1924.
These quotas were based on
national origin and unabash-
edly aimed to limit the num-
ber of Jews, Italians, Greeks,
and others from southern
and eastern Europe people
whose religious beliefs did not
fit with traditional American
Protestantism.
Many economists believe
that the decline in immigra-
tion caused by the 1924 quo-
ta law was a factor in bringing
on. the Great Depression of
the 1930s. In any case, the
1930s is exceptional in that
more people left the United
States than entered. As fas-
cism rose in Europe near the
end of the decade, immigra-
tion again rose, especially
with an intellectual migration
thai included such futurists
as Albert Einstein and Enrico
Fermi. Ordinary Jews and
leftists, however, were refused
entry. Quotas remained firm,
and in 1939, Jews on the St.
Louis who attempted to land
at Miami were forced to return
to Europe and the probability
of death.
The nation saw slight im-
migration increases during
the" 1940s and 1950s, largely
women who married American


soldiers abroad. A small por-
tion of the many Europeans
who were displaced by World
War II also were allowed in,
but these were almost entirely
professionals whose presence
would be advantageous to the
US. Other privileged immi-
grants who could ignore quo-
tas were wealthy Asians, es-
pecially the Chinese who fled
from mainland communism.
New legislation under Lyn-
don Johnson in the 1960s fi-
nally ended quotas based on
national origin but did not
reopen the doors to the "hud-
dled masses" of the previous
century. Instead, immigrants
were required to bring signifi-
cant financial assets or par-
ticular skills. Cubans fleeing
the Castro revolution of the
1960s, however, were exempt-
ed from that standard. The-
same would be true for Viet-
namese and other southeast-
ern Asians who allied them-
selves with Americans in the
losing war of the 1970s.
The change in law, from
national origin to individual
assets, marked the beginning
of immigration from places
like India and Pakistan, where
affluent families sent their
younger members to build
businesses in America. Oth-
er parts of the former British
Empire also sent their young.
Many immigrants from the
Middle East and Africa in the
1970s were students who
came to American colleges -
the best in the world to study
the STEM subjects that were
declining in popularity among
Americans. The USF College
of Engineering, for example,
soon was composed of many
people who had not been born
in the United States.
But when people speak of
immigrants today, they prob-
ably mean Hispanics, espe-
cially Mexicans. California,
Texas, and some other states
long depended on Mexican la-
bor during busy agricultural
seasons, but the numbers of
permanent- illegal residents
picked up during the Reagan
years of the 1980s. Some
newcomers were political ref-
ugees, especially from wars in
El Salvador, Guatemala, and
Honduras but these exiles
did not receive the special
treatment that went to Cu-
bans. They rebelled against
right-wing governments, not
a left-wing one, and the State
. Department offered no auto-
matic alyssum.

FIRSTGOVo "
1 ,(800) FED INFO
A public service message from the U.S. General Services Administration.


Most Hispanics, however,
came for the same non-polit-
ical reason that most immi-
grants always have come: to
make money. European im-
migrants were the backbone
of the 19th century Industrial
Revolution, but by the mid-
dle of the 20th century, their
descendants had unionized
and expected higher wages.
Firmly anti-union, the Reagan
administration turned a blind
eye to violations of immigra-
tion law, and major corpora-
tions profited as they laid off
union workers and hired un-
documented Hispanics.
Instead of returning to
Mexico after the end of agri-
cultural seasons, they stayed
and worked in canneries,
chicken and beef processing
plants, and for women gar-
ment factories. .As African
Americans rejected house-
work as an occupation, His-
panic women replaced them.
Whether a lone employee .in
.a household or among thou-
sands in a factory, they found
that few employers checked
the legality of their residency.
Without quite realizing it,
such insular states as Ala-
bama and Arkansas soon
found themselves with signifi-
cant populations of-Spanish-
speaking people. They do me-
nial work for little money; they
pay taxes that they cannot
collect on because they lack
a Social Security, number;
and they often endure unsafe
conditions. A 1991 fire at Im-
perial Foods was the worst
industrial accident in North
Carolina's history, killing
twenty-five workers and in-
juring three times that many.
Like earlier immigrants, they
worked behind locked doors,
and in eleven years of opera-
tion, the place never had a
safety inspection.
But just as the 1912 Trian-
gle Fire in New York City did
not stop of the flow of Jewish
immigration, Hispanics con-
tinued to arrive- during the
1990s and the 2000s. Arkan-
sas-based Tyson Foods was
prosecuted in 2001 for hiring
undocumented workers, but
that was an exception, not
the rule. Congress continued
to duck its responsibility to
reform immigration law, and
hypocrisy remained its under-
lying principle.
Now, as the US-born chil-
dren of undocumented im-
migrants reach college age
and some states want to deny
them equal treatment de-
spite their valid citizenship
- it appears that President
Obama will be able to pass
his DREAM Act. The recent
election, with its negative de-
mographic implications for
Republicans, has more than a
little to do with changed con-
gressional attitudes.
But I hope for the day when
none of it will matter. Only a
few decades ago, one needed
a passport and perhaps a visa
to move around Europ --i na-
tions and now unde -ie EU,
national borders art .ssed
as easily as those between
American states. The time
should come when no borders
matter, when we all are citi-
zens of all the world.

Death of Two Salesmen


Office supply guys come
through the doors at La Gace-
ta like the Germans went
through Poland. Each one is
going to give me the deal of a
lifetime and somehow, they
all have the cheapest toner in
town.
What's interesting about
them coming in, however, is
not their spiel, which I will
get into, but how easy it is to
delineate salesmen from com-
mon folk.
They're too friendly.
I suppose it tells me more
about myself than them that
I can identify over-niceness,
but the truth remains, no one,
other than salesmen, come off
this way.
We had a pair of guys come
in this week who decided they
wanted to know all about the
fat dog that occupies the space
in front of our front door.
They looked around the
front office, desperately
searching for something on
a desk or a wall that would
serve as conversation fodder.
The elder statesmen of
the two noticed a New York
Mets mug on my desk and
inquired, "Mets fan, huh?" I
was amazed at his keen sense
of detection. I wondered why
he was wasting his time going
door-to-door when he could
be out solving crimes.
I affirmed that I am a Mets
fan, but was very busy and did
not have time for small talk.
He then pulled up a chair at
my desk and asked if I was
from New York.
I let him know I was from
New Jersey, to which his
trusty sidekick smiled and as-
sured me that he could tell I
was from New Jersey from my
accent.
I didn't know if Henry Hig-
gins or a paper salesman was
in front of me, but I sense that
I gave enough of an impres-
sion that I was bothered. I
asked the super sleuths how


I could help them.
They went into their pitch
about how much cheaper they
were than the other compa-
nies and if I could give them
a list of things I order normal-
ly, they would get me a great
deal. I let them know that I
do my due diligence when it
comes to spending money and
when I need something; I call
around to get the best price.
He assured me that they
would beat everyone around,
to which I let him know that
my job was to get them in a
price war with other compa-
nies to save us money.
I also expressed my opinion
that I was not going to work
for them. If they wanted my
business, they would have to
work for me and I would look
at their prices.
I know they understood,
but I think they came from the
Glengarry Glen Ross school of
sales because they were un-
relenting. It was ABC, Always
Be Closing, so he noted our
different printers and took a
seat in the back office to call
his office to see what kind of.
prices he could get for us on
ink and toners.
Being that I get about three
calls a day from guys who are
going to save me money on
toner, I am pretty well versed
in the pricing of all things
printing related.
To my surprise, he came
through with some pretty
good prices. I was intrigued,
but I let him know that we
weren't a warehouse for office
supplies and didn't have any
room.
He told me that I could put
in an order that day, but they
could hold onto it until I need-
ed it.
I wasn't budging and I
wanted them gone, but even
as a seasoned vet, their per-
sistence made me want to re-
ward them with something.
After all, they weren't beggars

off the street, well not in the
traditional sense, at least.
I took a look around the
office to see if there was any-
thing we could order from
them, but alas, we did all of
our supply ordering at the
end of the year and were not
in need of anything other than
some copy paper, which they
were offering at a pretty good
price.
I told the salesman that the
only thing I could order from
him today would be a case of
paper. It's not as glamorous
as a big-ticket item like toner,
but it was all I needed. In his
best Willy Loman, he let me
know that maybe he could
come back another time when
we had a bigger order.
Their hi-energy, dog-in-
quisitive nature was darkened
by a cloud of failure. No longer
did they care about the paint-
ings on the wall or how much
the fat dog weighed.
They were friendly because
they thought we were ready to
write a check. Once they knew
they couldn't close the deal, it
was back to the pavement to
look for the next rube.
But I knew that from the
moment they walked in the
door because, Mr. Loman, my
momma didn't raise no fool.
They did see the Mets mug,
didn't they?

ARIES (March 21 to April 19)
Guess what, Lamb? You're
about to experience a new
perspective on a situation you
long regarded quite different-
ly. What you learn could open
more opportunities later.
TAURUS (April 20 to May
20) The Bold Bovine is tempt-
ed to charge into a new ven-
ture. But it might be best to
take things one step at a time,
so that you know just where
you are at any given point.
GEMINI (May 21 to June

that fun getaway you've been
planning. You'll return re-
freshed, ready and, yes, even
eager to tackle the new chal-
lenge that awaits you.

LEO (July 23 to August 22)

opportunities to expand into
new and exciting areas of in-
terest.
VIRGO (August 23 to Sep-

need better transportation."
Christine Burdick, presi-

"The number of residents

might find that some of your
newly made friends could of-
fer important business con-

SCORPIO (October 23 to No-
vember 21) You might take
pride in wanting to do every-
thing yourself. But now's a
good time to ask family mem-
bers to help with a demanding
personal situation.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22

attention to the possibilities
in that workplace change. It
.could show the way to make
that long-sought turn on your
career path.
CAPRICORN (December 22

succeed might overwhelm ob-
ligations to your loved ones.
Ease up on that workload and
into some welldeserved time
with family and friends.
AQUARIUS (January 20 to

amorous Aquarians who can
make good use of their abil-

Don't be surprised if they're
reciprocated in kind.
PISCES (February 19 to
March 20) Fishing for compli-

to let others believe they were
the ones who uncovered the
treasure you really are.
BORN THIS WEEK: Your good
works flow from an open, gen-

of the number of people who are homeless on Thursday, Jan.
24, between 4 a.m. and 11 p.m.
In addition to a street and shelter count, the Homeless
Coalition will also utilize a phone bank system through its
partnership with News Channel 8. This will enable people liv-
ing with family or friends or who are paying to live in motels
or campgrounds due to inadequate housing resources to call
and be counted.
This year, the phone bank has been expanded to allow Hills-
borough and Pinellas County homeless residents to call and
report their homelessness.
More than 500 volunteers will be needed to help with the
count in Hillsborough County, including 70 needed to answer
calls at the phone bank between 4 a.m. and 11 p.m. All vol-
unteers are required to attend a training session prior to the
day of the count. Volunteers will wear bright orange shirts and
work in teams to visit places homeless people go as part of their
daily activities, including homeless encampments, shelters,
daily labor sites, meal locations, clothing programs, streets,
sidewalks and other locations.
Volunteers must engage each homeless person in a brief
interview. Each homeless person participating will receive a
new pair of socks and/or a rain poncho for their time.
For information how to help and volunteer, visit the Home-
less Coalition's website at www.homelessofhc.org or call 223-
