Repubican County Cmis- PARI


Republican County Commis-
sioner Al Higginbotham filed to run
for the countywide county conimis-
sion seat in 2014, -which is currently
held by Mark Sharpe. He needs to
switch from his East Hillsborough
District 4 seat because of loom-
ing term limits. He'll have eight
years on the Commission in '14. By
changing seats, he can extend his
political career on the Commission
to 16 years.
He joins Democratic City Coun-
cilwoman Mary Mulhern in filing
for the seat.
We hear School Board Chair-


woman April Griffin will file her
paperwork very soon. Griffin is a
Democrat and should be a strong
candidate in the race.
Others that are potentially in the
mix are Republican Rose Ferlita
and Democrat Tom Scott.

Newbie Democrat Charlie Crist
continues to be coy about his plans
to run for governor. He won't com-
mit nor dismiss the idea when
asked, yet he continues to show up

America Latil


Bolivia: uno de los paises menos endeudados
Bolivia es uno de los tres paises de Am6rica Latina menos
endeudados con relaci6n a su Producto Interno Bruto (PIB),
seglin datos del Ministerio de Economia y Finanzas PCiblicas. De
acuerdo con esas cifras, la deuda internal y externa de Bolivia,
ascendente a unos 8.288 millones de d61ares hasta noviembre,
de 2012, represent el. 31 por ciento del PIB. En el resto de la
region latinoamericana, sobresale Ecuador, con un 18 por ciento
de endeudamiento y Perfi con un 21 por ciento.
Por otra parte, Domingo Alcibia, un congresista boliviano
fue acusado de violar a una trabajadora en una dependencia
pfiblica. El hecho fue captado por las camaras de seguridad del
local de la Asamblea Departamental de Chuquisaca, al sudoeste
de Bolivia. El hecho se produjo el pasado 20 de diciembre, -luego
de que various asambleistas bebieran alcohol en este local. Tras
hacerse pfiblico el video y el esc&ndalo posterior, el president
Evo Morales exigi6 la renuncia de los implicados (Domingo Al-
cibia y dos asambleistas mas) o al menos retirarles la licencia
mientras se esclarece el hecho
Am6rica Latina: hacia el pleno empleo
Las economies latinoamericanas se acercan poco a poco
hacia el pleno empleo. Segun los datos publicados por la Orga-
nizaci6n Internacional del Trabajo (OIT), el paro sigui6 bajando
en la region en 2012 hasta situarse en el 6,4%, la tasa mas
baja desde que la organizaci6n empez6 a medir este indicador
hace ahora 22 afios. Tras alcanzar una media regional del
11% en los primeros afios del siglo XX, el desempleo se ha ido
reduciendo en la media en que los precious de las materials
primas se mantienen altos y la economic crece. Se han creado
30 millones de empleos y la mujer se incorpora cada vez mdas
al mundo laboral.
Latinoambrica: crecimiento econ6mico en ascenso
De acuerdo a las previsiones divulgadas por la ONU a finales
de la semana pasada, el crecimiento de America Latina y el
Caribe serd moderado este afo y el pr6ximo, alcanzando 3,9%
y 4,4% respectivamente. En 2013, Panama serd, segfin dichos
pron6sticos, el pais con mayor crecimiento en America Latina,
con un 7,5%, seguido por Paraguay, con 6,9%. Para Brasil se
estima un advance de 4%, M6xico 3,8% y Argentina 3,2%. Seglin
el organismo la region creci6 en 2012 un 3.2% y no 3.7% como
-habia anunciado a mediados de afio, eso debido a la "debilidad
de la economic mundial" causada por las dificultades que en-
frentan Estados Unidos, Europa y China.
Am6rica Latina y la emigraci6n
La emigraci6n desde Latinoam6rica a paises mas desarrollados
no muestra signos de reducirse significativamente pese a la
mejora econ6mica en algunos paises de la region, seglun un
informed sobre inmigraci6n presentado por la Organizaci6n ,de
Estados Americanos (OEA). Por ejemplo, Canada y Estados
Unidos registraron en 2010 un aumento de la llegada de inmi-
grantes del 5%, despu6s de experimentar una caida del 12% en
2009. En efecto, dicho informed apunta que en 2011 la mitad de
los fluijos migratorios dentro del continent americano estuvo
dirigida hacia Estados Unidos y Canada.
Alianza del Pacifico: ingresan nuevos miembros
Los pauses observadores de la Alianza del Pacifico Panama,
Costa Rica, Espafia, Australia, Uruguay y Jap6n se incorpo-
raran a este bloque commercial, en calidad de miembros plenos,
durante el 2013, sostuvo el viceministro de Comercio Exterior de
Pert, Carlos Posada. La Alianza del Pacifico, que esta integrada
por Colombia, Chile, M6xico y Perut, fue creada mediante una
iniciativa lanzada por Peri el 28 de abril de 2011 por medio de
la Declaraci6n de Lima.
Violencia contra mujeres en Guatemala
Amnistia Internacional pidi6 este jueves a Guatemala que tome
medidas para poner fin a la "plaga" de crimenes violentos contra
las mujeres y para que los culpables no queden impunes. La
organizaci6n humanitarian critic duramente a las autoridades
guatemaltecas por "fallar sistematicamente" a la hora de pro-
teger a las mujeres y asegurarse de que los responsables sean
levados a lajusticia. Segun cifras oficiales, el afo pasado fueron
asesinadas 560 mujeres en el pais, una cantidad menor a la de
2011 y 2010, en la que 631 y 695 mujeres, respectivamente,
perdieron la vida de forma violent.
Venezuela exige respeto e igualdad
El vicepresidente de Venezuela, Nicolas Maduro, asegur6 que
su pais esta dispuesto a tener las "mejores relaciones" con el
Gobierno de Estados Unidos siempre que se basen en el respeto
y la igualdad y sefial6 que el propio president Hugo Chavez
asi se lo ha manifestado al nuevo canciller, Elias Jaua. Tam-
bi6n sefial6 que "America Latina y el Caribe ya no es mas el
patio trasero de estas 61lites estadounidenses. Am6rica Latina
ya ha tomado su propio camino en lo econ6mico, en lo politico
(...) Esto debe dar paso a un nuevo ciclo de relaciones de res-
peto". Maduro encabeza el Ejecutivo desde que el president
Hugo Chavez viaj6 a Cuba para someterse a una intervenci6n
quirtrgica por la reaparici6n de cancer hace mas de un mes.

personas, luego de que este
domingo hiciera la toma de
posesi6n formal de acuerdo

El president de Esta-

que la comunidad latina aun

En efecto, en las elecciones

Segunda toma de posesi6n del

president Barack Obama









Por Manuela Ocarina Ball
Mas de mil personas
asistieron al ameno tercer
festival cultural de musica
llanera, realizado el 20 de en-
ero en Thonotosassa (Florida).
Venezolanos, colombianos
y otros hermanos de nuestra
bella America disfrutaron de
la musica folkl6ricay un grato
dia de esparcimiento. El arpa,
el cuatro y las maracas estu-
vieron de fiesta a lo largo de la
jornada cultural, mientras her-
mosos caballos de paso desfila-
ban elegantemente frente a los
espectadores.
Ademds, deliciosas carnes
a la brasa y comida tipica de
nuestro continent dieron
el toque culinario perfect.
Bailes tipicos de Colombia y
Venezuela fueron apreciados
por un puiblico lleno de entu-
siasmo y alegria, que ademds
no paraba de bailar salsa,
merengue, bachata, cumbia
y el joropo interpretado por
el grupo "Golpe Llanero" y'la
cantante Consuelito del Llano.
; Se cont6 con la presencia
de la C6nsul de Colombia en
Orlando, Maria Matilde Lon-
dofio Jaramillo, quien-ademas,
inform que los consulados
m6viles estardn en Tampa el
23 de enero.
Felicitamos al senior
Armando Echeverri y demds
organizadores y colabora-
dores por la realizaci6n de un
event muy agradable, sano y
familiar.
Acerca de la mfsica
llanera
La musica llanera, viene de
la mezcla de influencias espa-
fiolas y amerindias. El joropo
nace de los bailes flamencos
y andaluces que trajeron los
espafioles durante la epoca
colonial con la fusi6n de ritmos
aut6ctonos.
El arpa, el cuatro y las ma-
racas son los protagonistas de
este tempo sin igual. Sin em-
ba.rgo, numerosos conjuntos
.musicales han agregado el bajo,
y en los estados venezolanos de
Apure, Barinas, Gudrico, Co-
jedes y Portuguesa se ha incor-
porado la bandola l1anera, un
instrument de gran sonoridad
con cuatro cuerdas que se toca
con una pua o unfa.
Hablar de los Llanos es
nombrar tambien al caballo, al
ganado, al chinchorro (hamaca
ligera) y sobre todo, al ingenio
de los cantantes o copleros
que con intense pasi6n y re-
cias rimas le dan una picardia
altanera o un exquisite roman-
ticismo al joropo, incitando a
vivaces zapateos y al magnifico
punteo y contrapunteo de las
melodies llaneras.
Entrevista con un llanero
Mds que un g6nero musical,
el joropo es un sentimiento
que alberga la recia estirpe
de los llaneros, los guerre-
ros coquetos de las planicies
interminables de. esa zona
geogrdfica. Manifiesta la al-
tivez, la hombria del llanero,
la belleza de sus mujeres y el
amor irrenunciable a la tierra
de los jinetes y a las llanuras.
A continuaci6n, una
entrevista exclusive concedida
amablemente a nuestro espa-
cio por el sefior Perdomo, un
venezolano, familiar de Enaeas
Perdomo, quien es reconocido
como uno de los interpretes
mas prominentes del joropo
venezolano, nombrado "El
General en Jefe del folclor
venezolano" despu6s de su
fallecimiento, el 25 de febrero
de 2011.
,Podrias describir la
idiosincrasia o estilo de vida
del llanero?
La cultural regional del
llanero permit identificar las
particularidades cotidianas de
toda la sociedad y su relaci6n
con el medio.
Su cultural es todo lo que
el llanero produce y trans-
forma, o simplemente utiliza
para adaptarse y relacionarse


Alrededor de mil personas asistieron al festival musical


Hermosos caballos de paso dieron muestra de su elegancia
X w -


,,-.-- ,*. : ..^. ..... _; y. '


Numerosas presentaciones de bailes tipicos d'e
Colombia y Venezuela engalanaron la festividad


con sus semejantes. Sus cos-
tumbres, creencias, m~isica,
folclore, el coleo [sujetar a la
res por la cola], las peleas de
gallos, el joropo, la danza, las
leyendas, el mito, el renovado
y popularizado uso del poncho,
entire otros, viven actualmente
una lucha para no desapa-
recer ante el empuje de la
vida urbana o modern, que
menosprecia estas costumbres
en pro de crear una nueva
manifestaci6n de la cultural.
El folclore esta compuesto por
las costumbres tradicionales
del pueblo llanero.
eC6mo definiria al hombre
llanero?
El hombre llanero se puede
definir como ejecutor por el
trabajo que realize en el Llano:
* el caballo, los toros coleados, el
contorno tipico del ambiente.
Se distingue por interactuar
con otras cultures nacionales,
otros animals y topografias
que se le articulan de manera
contrastante o complementa-
rias entire si. Lo sella ademis
su temperament recio, su
agresivo valor frente a los peli-
gros, su rudeza para domar al
caballo salvaje, al toro bravo
cimarr6n y dominar a las fieras
silvestres, ,incluso el caracter
fuerte de una mujer.
Se le conoce por su cultural
del tiesgo como acci6n para el
mantenimiento y reproducci6n
agricola y ganadera. Tambien
se expresa en el corrio la com-
probada nobleza del llanero, su
resignaci6n para vivir en una
region diferente a las dem.s
zonas del pais, su generosidad,
hospitalidad y acentuado com-
pafierismo. En estas vivencias
se han inspirado e inspiran los
poetas y copleros.
.CuAles son sus particu-
laridades o caracteristicas?


Dentro de sus
caracteristicas, se podria decir
que aunque hay excepciones
en estatura, color de piel y de
ojos el llanero es de median
estatura, generalmente de
conformaci6n delgada, trigue-
flo, rasgos ligeramente finos,
ojos negros, o marrones, cara
ovalada, boca median, cabello
lacio.
Por tradici6n se ha dedi-
cado al cultivo como medio de
subsistericia, cosecha yuca y
topocho [variedad de fruto] que
junto con la carne es la base
'de su dieta alimenticia. Es un
expert cazador, artesano de
maderas, constructor.
Generalmente usa ropas
ligeras, franelas y pantalones
cortos, usa sombrero pelo de
guama. El dormitorio es de
chinchorro o hamaca. Toma
cafe negro a las 4 de la ma-
fiana y hace dos golpes en
dia ordinario, come queso
banco y/o cuajada, es poco
vegetarian, toma agua desde
que se levanta.
Su vida estR en su sabana
infinita, en donde se identifica
con sus garzas, garrapateros,
alcaravanes [aves nocturnas].
Posee gran conocimiento de los
animals, sus enfermedades,
conoce cada uno de los meses
de su apareamiento y cria.
Tambien intuye si una mujer
esta enamorada... y pare usted
de contar... Ah, pero eso si, es
un fiestero innato, baila, canta
y enamora, hace sus grandes
parrandas, bebe y es tradi-
cionalista en lo concerniente
a celebrar fiestas como la
Semana Santa, las fiestas
tradicionales de la Navidad y
el Afho Nuevo.
Siempre se le oirR entonando

La gran mentira de
Armstrong
Lance Armstrong dijo que
si y un no a las s.eis. pregun-
tas que le hizo Oprah Winfrey
en una entrevista que sali6 al
aire la seriana pasada. Las
preguntas y 'las respuestas
fueron: "eTom6' alguna. vez
sustancias prohibidas para
mejorar su rendimiento como
ciclista?" "Si"; ".Fue una de
esas sustancias prohibidas
EPO?" "Si"t"eUs6 alguna
vez transfusions de sangre

to?" "Si"; "eUs6 alguna vez
otras sustancias prohibidas

"Si; "-En todas sus siete
victorias del Tour de Francia

o se dop6 la sangre?" "Si";
"SEn su opinion era humana-
mente possible ganar sin do-
parse siete Tours consecuti-
vos?" "No, en mi opinion".


Lance Armstrong toma de
la mano a la honestidad
El ciclista explic6 c6mo lo-
gr6 evitar ser descubierto du-
rante afios, pese a seguir una
rutina de dopaje que, seglin
61 mismo, incluia "s61o EPO -
no much -, transfusions y
testosterone" y la cual com-
par6 con "decir que tenemos
que poner aire en las ruedas
o agua en las botellas".
Admiti6 un plan que le
permitia aparecer limpio en


-I,.- x- -- -
Se confes6 igualmente uha
persona "con fallos", "un aco-
sador", "arrogante y retador".
El ciclista desminti6 ser "el
mis sofisticado de la historic
de todos los deportes". "Era'
inteligente y professional, pero
tambi6n conservador y huia
de los riesgos", asegur6.
Asquea a Marodona
ambiente futbolistico


Diego Armando Maradona
El exfutbolista y excapi-
tan del seleccionado argenti-
no Diego Armando Maradona
asegur6 recientemente que
no quiere volver a trabajar en
el fitbol porque le da "asco"
c6mo se trata a los entrenado-
res. "No quiero trabajar mas
en el fuftbol, me da asco. No
quiero volver a eso", expuso
Maradona a Radio Nacional
Argentina, tras reunirse con
la president, Cristina Fer-
nandez, en Abu Dhabi, prime-
ra escala de una gira interna-
cional de la mandataria por
Asia.
Maradona revel6 que su
"asco" y la decision de no tra-
bajar mas se produjo al ver
que despidieron un mi6rcoles
al entrenador de River Plate,
Matias Almeyda, y al domingo
siguiente presentaron a Ra-
m6n Diaz como nuevo tecnico.
"Me da asco que a gente como
Almeyda, que es un senior, le
falten el respeto asi", agreg6 la
controversial figure deportiva.

Durant y Boozer:
Jugadores de la Semana

de los Bulls de Chicago, y el
alero Kevin Durant, del Thun-
der de Oklahoma City, logra-


Carlos Boozer (izq.) y
Kevin Durant
ron el premio al Jugador de la
Semana en las Conferencias
del Este y el Oeste. Boozer fue
el cabeza de los Bulls, con re-
gistro de 3-1, al conseguir 23
puntos y 14.8 rebotes. El es-
telar jugador de Chicago ob-
tuvo double cifras de puntos y
rebotes en los cuatro partidos
que jug6. Otros jugadores de
la Conferencia Este candida-
tos al premio fueron LeBron
James (Miami) y Jrue Holiday
(Philadelphia).
A su vez, Durant alcanz6 el
lauro por segunda semana al
hilo dentro de la Conferencia
Oeste despu6s de haber con-
seguido la mejor marca como
professional, con 52 puntos, en
el partido que el Thunder gan6
a los Mavericks en Dallas.
Durant concluy6 la semana
con medias de 37.5 puntos,
el mejor de la liga. Su equipo
tambi6n sigue como lider de
la NBA. Otros candidatess al
reconocimiento en la Confe-
rencia Oeste fueron el vene-
zolano Greivis VAsquez (New
Orleans), Russell Westbrook
(Ol1ahoma City), y DeMarcus
Cousins (Sacramento).
Los:49ers y los Ravens en el
Super Bowl
Frank Gore marc6 dos
touchdowns en acarreos en
el segundo tiempo y los 49ers
borraron una desventaja de
0-1 para imponerse el do-
mingo,20 de enero, 28-24 a
los Falcons de Atlanta en la
final ae la Conferencia Nacio-


nal y conseguir por primera
vez desde 1995 el boleto al
Super Bowl a celebrarse en
New Orleans. Los 49ers se la
veran con los Ravens de Balti-
more. San Francisco persigue
su sexto titulo de la NFL.
El afio pasado, los 49ers,
cayeron en ag6nico tiempo ex-
tra ante los Giants de Nueva
York por el titulo de la con-
ferencia. El duelo sera igual-
mente entire hermanos, ya que
el entrenador de los 49ers,
Jim Harbaugh, es hermano
del de los Ravens, John Har-
baugh. Menuda rivalidad. La
pregunta es, 6a que equipo
apoyardn sus familiares?
Gasol, de titular a suplente
Mike D'Antorii, el dirigen-
te de Los Angeles Lakers, y el
espafiol Pau Gasol han discre-
pado sobre la titularidad del
primero.


Pau Gasol quiere seguir
como titular estrella

Gasol jug6 como substitu-
to despu6s de ausentarse en
cinco juegos por una conmo-
ci6n, y al. iberico no le gust6
en nada la idea. Earl Clark
abri6 el juego como delantero
en lugar de Gasol en la derro-
ta de los Lakers de 99-90 ante
Miami Heat. "Pienso que cada
jugador debe aceptar lo que es
correct, le guste o no. Esa es
la conclusion", afirm6 al res-
pecto D'Antoni.
A su vez, Gasol, quien ayu-
d6 a los Lakers ganar cam-
peonatos consecutivos junto
a Kobe Bryant, manifest: "He
sido el titular estrella toda mi
carrera, asi que quiero conti-
nuar siendo un titular estre-
lla".
Si, bien, .al cierre de esta
edici6n, D'Antoni tras la no-


vena derrota de los Lakers en
los ultimos 11 partidos, en
este caso frente a Chicago,
declar6 para que no queden
dudas: "La suplencia de Gasol
estd grabada en piedra... Has-
ta la pr6xima vez que cambie
de idea".
Cristiano se disculp6 con
sus compafieros


Altercado entire Ronaldo
(izq.) y Jose Mourinho
El delantero portugu6s Ro-
naldo cristiano reuni6 a todos
sus compafieros de equipo
para ofrecerles una disculpa
por el altercado que tuvo con
el entrenador del Real Madrid,
Jos6 Mourinho. "Les quiero
hablar de lo sucedido el mar-
tes con el mister, quiero pe-
dirles disculpas. Tenemos que
estar todos juntos y tirar ha-
cia adelante. Les pido unidad
y trabajo. Todavia hay cosas
que ganar", dijo Ronaldo en el
program "Punto Pelota".
En la. discusi6n que dio
lugar a la polemica despu6s
del partido contra el Valencia
por la Copa de Rey -, el estra-
tega Mourinho le reclamabq al
jugador estrella que no estaba
ayudando a defender, sin em-
bargo, lo hizo en un tono que
'desagrad6 al jugador, quien
se puso furioso por conside-
rar que los comentarios eran
injustos y debido a esto, al-
gunos jugadores tuvieron que
intervenir para calmar los hii-
mos antes de que la discusi6n
pasara a una bronca mayor.

Consejos para la declaraci6n

de impuestos


El gobierno federal ha hecho
las siguientes recomendacio-
nes sobre las declaraciones de
impuestos:
El preparador de impues-
tos pagado esta obligado legal-
mente a firmar la declaraci6n.
Evite a los preparadores
que anuncian poder obtener
un reembolso mayor que
los demis preparadores. Si
su declaraci6n es prepara-
da correctamente, todo pre-
parador deberd coirfcidir con
numerous similares.
Tenga cuidado con los
preparadores que le garanticen
resultados a base de alguna
cuota o de algin porcentaje del
reembolso esperado.
Elija a un preparador que
est6 disponible en caso de que
el IRS le haga preguntas con
respect a su declaraci6n.
Investigue si su prepara-
dor tiene un historical de quejas
con la Oficina de Buenas Pric-
ticas Comerciales (en ingl6s),
la asociaci6n estatal de conta-
dores, la asociaci6n estatal de
abogados o la oficina estatal
del procurador general.
Asegirese de que el pre-
parador tenga las credencia-
les adecuadas. Solamente los"
abogados, contadores piiblicos
certificados y preparadores
inscritos pueden representar
al contribuyerite ante el IRS en.
cualquier asunto, incluyendo
auditorias, cobros y apelacio-
nes.
Investigue si el prepara-
dor est& afiliado a alguna
organizaci6n professional, que
exige a sus miembros tener
educaci6n continue y cumplir
con un c6digo de 6tica.


Informaci6n tributaria
general
En Estados Unidos, los
impuestos se pagan a nivel
local, estatal y federal (los
dos primeros casos no se
aplican a todos los estados;
asi, por ejemplo, los estados
que no cobran impuestos lo-
cales son Alaska, Dakota del
Sur, Florida, Nevada, Texas,
Washington y Wyoming).
Si su ingreso es de $58,000
o menor, usted puede presen-
tar su declaraci6n electr6ni-


nivel de ingreso. Esta opci6h
es utilizada generalmente por
personas que se sienten c6mo-
das preparando sus propias
declaraciones y que desean
tomar ventaja de la prepara-
ci6n rapida y segura que ofrece
la presentaci6n electr6nica
gratuita. Los formularios in-
teractivos s6lo hacen calculos
matematicos basicos y no
ofrecen ayuda con declaracio-
nes estatales.
La tasa de impuesto en
Florida es de 7 por ciento.

pianta foraggera (cladodi per
l'alimentazione del bestiame),
medicinale (i decotti dei
fiori svolgono una funzione
diuretica) ed ornamental.
Una peculiarit& del
ficodindia che, soprattutto
sull'Etna, ne ha assicurato la
sua valorizzazione produttiva
e la attitudine ad assicurare
una second fioritura a seguito
della .eliminazione dei primi
fiori in giugno (scozzolatura)
che conduce alla produzione
di frutti (bastardoni) a
maturazione invernale, di
migliore pezzatura e di piut
apprezzate caratteristiche
gustative rispetto a quelli
(agostani) originati dai primi
fiori.
La presenza dei frutti di
ficodindia sui mercati diversi
da quelli local, a motivo
della difficolta di utilizzazione
legata alla presenza di spine
sull'epicarpo, e stata sempre


episodica; di recent la
accentuata richiesta di frutta
esotica ha per6 determinato
un notevole aumento della
domanda di frutti ci6 che
ha favorite un complete
rinnovamento della coltura.
Da pianta utilizzata allo stato
natural o quasi, il ficodindia
si e trasformata in una pianta
coltivata a sesti regolari, su
terreni sistemati ed irrigui,
sottoposti a tecniche di
produzione innovative.
Anche sull'Etna la coltura
del ficodindia present oggi due
volti: quello tradizionale delle
"chiuse" o dei "sieponi" e quello
degli impianti a sesto regolare,

piu rappresentati in ambienti

SSILHOUETTES

' by Emily Carney


Cavaliere Ufficiale Vincent
Genovese knows what it's
like to chisel out an existence
in the United States from
scratch. "I was born in Italy,
in Calabria in Gioia Tauro,
Reggio Calabria. After the
war, with my family, we emi-
grated from Italy to the USA.
This was in 1955 when I was
a teenager. None of us spoke
English," he related.
"I went .to
school at night
to learn English. vi
I went to work
for my uncles,
who had a big ':
clothing factors'
-in Philadelphia.
They were mak-
*ing suits, pants,
whatever. I ar-
rived on Satur-
day, by boat, with
my family and
Monday mom-
ing, I was at the '-. "
job 'immediately.' .
I was very eager .j
to be active."
Through grit-
ty- determina-
tion, Genovese :-
attained the
American Dream.
carving out a suc- -
cessful career in 2.'
business. He was %.
then determined .
to give back to
his community N-
.through service.
Even in retire-'
ment, he tire-
lessly works to
promote Italian
heritage and cul-
ture,. educating
the Tampa com-
munity about his
native couihtry.
After arriving
in the U.S., the "Somebod
teenage Geno- do to have f
vese quickly for- involved. T
mulated a plan to
enrich his life. "I was there at
the tailor shop... after having
been there two or three days,
'I said, 'That's nice to start...
but not to finish. I don't want
to spend the rest of my life in
this factory.' I spent a couple
of years there. In the mean-
time, I went to night school
to learn English," he related.
Within a few years, Genovese
was fluent in English and.
had, along with his education
in Italy, gained enough cred-
its to go to college. "In 1959,
I decided to go to university.
I alsojoined the Pennsylvania
National Guard as a reservist.
"I went to Temple Universi-
ty. I worked in the daytime and.
I was going to school at night,"
he said. Genovese paid for his
education tuition, books and
all through his work at the
clothing factory. "I graduated
with a degree in business ad- -
ministration from Temple in
1965. After graduating and
completing my military ser-
' vice in 1966, I sat for the CPA
test. In one shot, I made it. In
the meantime, I was working
as an auditor for a CPA firm."
After filling out an applica-
tion to work overseas, he was
hired by Avis Rent-A-Car In-
ternational, based in London,
England, as audit manager for
Europe, Africa and the Middle
East.
His career advanced swift-
ly. "In two years, I was pro-
moted to general manager in
Tel Aviv, Israel. After a few
years, I reorganized the com-
pany in Israel... then I was
promoted to be the director of
operations in the Middle East
based in Athens, including
the Arab countries. I was then
promoted to vice president of


operations in Europe, Africa
-and the Middle East.
"In 1979, I joined the family
of Egyptian President Anwar
Sadat...I was managing di-
rector and partner of a major
project, which entailed cov-
ering hotels, travel and any-
thing related to tourism for
Europe, Africa and the Middle
East. I met his spn-in-law.
After meeting his son-in-law,


cent Genove


ly asked me the other day, 'Wh
Fun?' I said, 'Being involved. I
hat's my fun."' Photo by Robe

in those countries, once you
are part of a group, that's it
you're a member of the fam-
ily. I met Sadat many times at
receptions. He was very gra-
cious, very present and very
warm."
After Sadat's assassination
in 1981, Genovese decided to
move on from Egypt. "Once he
was assassinated, I felt that it
was time for me to leave Egypt..
In those countries, when your
benefactor is not. there any-
more, you have no protection.
In those countries, you must
have a benefactor you must
have someone who can open
the doors for you. The day he
died, those doors closed im-
mediately. It was time for me
to leave."
He went back to Philadel-
phia and joined- an Italian
helicopter company, Agus-
.taWestland Corporation, as a
vice president of finance and
administration. During this
time, he became focused on
promoting the culture and
heritage of Philadelphia's
large Italian-American com-
munity. "I was the head of
many organizations. I formed
sort of a coalition of many Ital-
ian-American organizations,
the Alliance of Italian-Ameri-
can Associations.. .it was com-
prised of about 50 or 60 dif-
ferent organizations. I was its
founder and first president.
"I would meet with the
press and media to make sure
they would provide a balanced
view of Italian-Americans. We
suffered in Philadelphia
and perhaps throughout the
States the false notion that
Italians are all criminals.
That's what the perception
was they're criminals or


.thby have associations with
the Mafia," he said, shaking
his head.
"My responsibility was to
meet with the editors of the
Philadelphia Inquirer, the lo-
cal newspaper, to discuss
this point and make sure the
media would also recognize
the contributions of Italians
have made to this country in
every field medical, busi-
ness, engineer-
IS ing, political and
more, because
the media tended
to concentrate
:..'upon the more
negative aspects
of our communi-
t and our heri-
tage."
I arranged to
have quarterly
Meetings with
the senior editors
of the newspaper,
along with presi-
dents of major or-
ganizations such
as the National
- -,.; ~I. talian-Ameri-
-" can Foundation
INIAFJ, Sons of
Italy and UNICO.
We'd meet every
three months
to discuss this
Point.
"Things im-
proved when they
began to realize
that there was
a misjudgment
about the Italian-
American com-
munity they'd
treat them as if
they were all in
the same bundle.
The Mafia is a re-
ality but it does
not represent the
iat do you Italian-Ameri-
want to be cans. It does not
rt Azmitia. mean all Italians
follow the Mafia.
Those were the kinds of things
I did that was my main point
of attack, to make sure we
improved the image of Italian-
Americans in that region and
alsd in the States. NIAF, Sons
of Italy and UNICO all had
the same mission to foster
awareness for what Italians
have contributed to this coun-
try. In the end, we were very
successful.
"We also did charitable
events and raised funds for
needy people all ethnic
groups, not necessarily Ital-
ians. We were on TV many
times participating in the
Easter Seals organization...we
were bringing checks we had
raised through many events,"
he added. "Whenever we had
sailing boats come over from
Italy for the 400th anniversa-
ry of Christopher Columbus,
there was a big celebration in
Philadelphia. I was the chief
organizer for the entertain-
ment surrounding that time."
He also was the chairman of
the Amerigo Vespucci Wel-
come Committee, which orga-
nized 'events during the visits
of the ships Amerigo Vespucci
and Stella Polare, throwing
gala events for military mem-
bers.
Genovese was "...busy all
the time. I was working dur-
ing the day, but in the eve-
ning and during the week-
ends I was always busy. This
was a continuous activity. I
never stopped." He was also
a member of the National Ital-
ian American Political Action
Committee, the Associazione
Regionale Calabrese, execu-
tive director of Miss Italia USA-
Philadelphia, and a founding
member and first president of


the Greater Northeast Phila-
delphia Chapter of UNICO
National. His numerous Ital-
ian-American community en-
deavors were rewarded with a
Cavaliere Ufficiale dell'Ordine
Al Merito della Repubblica Ital-
iana, a level of knighthood be-
stowed upon him by the Ital-
ian government. A distinctive
red-and-green pin on his lapel
denotes this honor.
In 2010, Genovese set his
sights upon retirement. "My
company had a policy at the
age of 65, you had to leave.
But they felt I should stay,"
he laughed. "Then I felt it was
time for me to leave. I want-
ed to go and enjoy the sun in
Florida, but not stop I want-
ed to continue what I enjoy to
do, and these are the things
I enjoy the most." While he
and his wife, Linda, may have
moved to Tampa to enjoy the
warm climate, Genovese had
no intention of quitting his
service to the Italian commu-
nity.
"Before I came here, I knew
the Consul General of Italy
in Miami, Marco Rocca, very
well. I mentioned to him that
very shortly I would be going
to Tampa to retire. He said he
would be very interested to
appoint me as the honorary
consul in Tampa. I said, Well,
as soon as I arrive in Tampa,
Ill give you a call,'" he said.
At first, the Italian govern-
ment would not accept his
application due to his -age-
"They called me and said, 'We
cannot accept.' I asked why.
'Because you're too old.' What
do you mean, too old? 'Well,
you're over 70.' Well, it was a
new beginning of my life!" he
laughed. Genovese is a very
youthful-looking 76. "So they.
gave me another title, which
basically has the same func-
tion. I am a Consular Corre-
spondent of Italy, represent-
ing the Italian government.
."When anyone has any
need for services, I provide
help here whenever I can. If
it's necessary, I will channel
them to the Consul General in
Miami. I do also get involved in
terms of assisting Italian com-
panies who want to do busi-
ness in the Tampa Bay area,
or if there are Italians in the
area who have problems, all
sorts criminal, civil, what-
ever. I provide any assistance
they require.
"I began to activate myself
with all of the organizations
here the Italian-American
organizations. The major one
is the Italian Club of Tampa,"
he related. "I held a very big
event in 2011 to celebrate
the 150th anniversary of the
unification of Italy. Last year,
we had National Italian Day,
which was to celebrate the day
when Italy became a republic,


on the second .of June. The
event Fm organizing right now
will happen on Sunday, Janu-
ary 27." Genovese is the exec-
utive director of International
Holocaust Remembrance Day
at Ybor's Italian Club, which
will begin that day at 4 p.m.
Genovese considers stay-
ing involved with community
matters as his most loved
hobby. "That's what I love
to do I love to be involved;
I like to help people as much
as I can. I receive calls all the
time every day from people
who need assistance; I chan-
nel them to the right direc-
tion. I like to do it because I
can afford to do it. I do not do
it for money. I do it because
this country has been great
to me and now I want to give
back to society not only to
the Italians, but also to the
Americans.
"I recognize the fact that
if I hadn't been in this coun-
try, I wouldn't have succeeded
as much as I did...the coun-
try gave me the opportunity.
Somebody asked me the other
day, 'What do you do to have
fun?' I said, 'Being involved. I
want to be involved. That's my
fun.'"
His dedication to service
stems from his connection to
his first home. "This passion
originated from me at a very
young age, even in the days
when I just came from Italy. I
had a nationalistic passion. I
am an American citizen and I
am also an Italian citizen. I'm
'an American and I'm an Ital-
ian, but I have a passion for
Italy, a passion for the coun-
try where I was born. It's cul-
ture.
"Italy is a country where
there is a family spirit. Ev-
erything revolves around the
. family. Everything revolves
around the kitchen. That's
how we are. I have a passion
for the art. Italy made gigantic
steps after the war. It was ac-
tually destroyed in the Second
World War, but it is now one
of the premier countries in the
world.
"There is a perception that
Italy is not stable, but it, in
fact, is very stable. It grows
very well. The reason why it
grows is because of the en-
trepreneurial spirit of the Ital-
ians. They distinguish them-
selves. The Italians who come
to this country have really
managed to establish many
prestigious organizations and
companies. That is because
of their ingenuity in the fields
of engineering, art and busi-
ness. Many people who come
from the south of Italy to this
country establish themselves.
There are many, like me, who
have made inroads into this
country. It's the passion for
the country."

Ybor's Art Gallery. This 2012 piece is called Bound

theft and fraud could be a huge em-
barrassment to former GOP leaders
like Crist. The potential witness list
reads like a who's who of the Florida
Republican Party and includes
former Governor Crist, former U.S.
Senator George LeMieux, former
-Attorney General Bill McCollum,
former Senate President Mike
Haridopolos and former House
Speaker Dean Cannon.
Crist could be waiting to see how
he and his reputation fare during
the trial. Every time his name
comes up in the Orlando court,
it will be bad for him. It would.
be worse if the news addressed
him during the February trial as
Democratic candidate for governor
Charlie Crist.
Coy Charlie is most likely cau-
tious Charlie. The question to run
or not could be answered in an Or-
lando courtroom in February.

The Governor's Day Luncheon
will be held during the Florida
State Fair at its fairgrounds on
Thursday, February 7. The hand-
shaking will start at 11:15 a.m. The
program will begin at noon.
Call 627-4216 if you'd like to
attend. Cost is $25 per person and
a table for 10 can be reserved for
$250.

U.S. Senator Marco Rubio told
Fox News talkintghead Greta Van
Susteren on Wednesday, "I'm not
going to accuse Secretary Hillary
Clinton of lying, but I am concerned
with her answers."
It seemed Rubio accused Clinton
of lying.
Hillsborough County is consid-
ering a domestic partner, registry
similar to the one the City of Tampa
-has had since June (The commis-
sion voted after this column was
written). The registry is for un-
married couples, heterosexual and
homosexual. It enables a domestic
partner to have some rights when it
comes to information and decisions
regarding his or her loved one.
It creates official documentation
for hospitals and funeral homes to
recognize a partner's rights to visit
and make arrangements.
As a married man of 30 years,
I've had these rights regarding
responsibilities to my wife, my
partner for the majority of my life,
so it's easy to forget how big a deal
this is to people who love and care
for each other, but don't or can't get
a piece of paper to recognize their
relationship.
We were reminded very recently
of the importance when we got an
invitation to the 35th anniversary
of Carrie West and Mark Bias. The
two are partners in life and busi-
ness. They are also the founders
GaYBOR District Coalition.
To celebrate 35 years, they are
going to file for the City of Tampa
Domestic Partnership Registry and
are asking their friends to witness
the event.
This is a very meaningful mo-
ment for them.

University Press of Florida sent
us. a catalog of new and recently-
published books for spring and
summer. Here are some of the of-
ferings that drew our interest:
Alligators in B-Flat by Jeff
Klinkenberg Weird, interesting.
and fun stories of Florida by a very
talented writer.
Red Pepper and Gorgeous
George by James Clark The
story of one of the nastiest political
campaigns in Florida's history: The
defeat of Congressman Claude Pep-
per in 1950 by George Smathers.
Inside Bush v. Gore by retired
Chief Justice Charley Wells This
book gives an inside account of the
Florida Supreme Court during the
Greek tragedy of the 2000 presiden-
tial election in Florida.
Fernando Alonso, The Father
of Cuban Ballet by Toba Singer -
This book profiles the 97-year-old
Cuban ballet master, Fernando
Alonso. It revels in the Cuban ballet
miracle and gives insight into the
making of a great ballet style.

tions, go to www.upf.com. Books

It always fascinates us just how
South Tampa-oriented Tampa's
major daily newspaper is. On Sun-
day, the Tribune published a story
entitled, "South Tampa Residents
Vexed by Night Train Horns." It
concerned CSX freight trains regu-
lar nighttime hours disturbing the
sleep of Tampa's elite and hoity-
toities in hallowed neighborhoods of
South Tampa. One line read, "Five
days a. week, the rail line's freight
train makes late-night runs along
Polk Street for seven blocks and
continues another eight miles into
South Tampa." The Trib makes
it seem like the freight train only
runs between Downtown and South
Tampa..
We're sure this same freight
-train blows its horn through Ybor
City and East Tampa. Does Mother
Trib think residents in these neigh-
borhoods aren't disturbed by loud
train whistles, since they can't hear
'em over the sounds of gunshots
and sirens? How 'bout Plant City,
Dover, Seffner and Gibsonton?
Does the sound of trains fail to out-
decibel the constant mooing or the
sound of meth factories?
At the very end of a long article,
the writer tossed a small whisper-
out to the rest of the world: "County
residents in recent years also have
had complaints about horns.",
This for-the-good-of-South-Tam-
pa-only article even drew the at-
tention of another Tribune writer,
Joe Henderson, who wrote a couple
of days later, "I have news for the
good people of South Tampa: It's not
just about you...My house in that
beautiful oasis known as Brandon
is bracketed by tracks...It's not un-
usual to hear trains at any hour."
Funny how some people's sleep is
more important than others.
The U.S. Treasury will no longer
offer paper checks by mail for Social
Security or disability payments. It's
going all electronic in March. All
recipients will need to sign up for.
direct deposit or a Treasury-issued
debit card.
Electronic filing and debit cards


have been a boon to criminals want-
ing to defraud the government of
tax returns. Billions are being lost
and the IRS has been slow to get
control over the situation.
Here's another move to electronic
payments, this time mandatory,
and we wonder if it will lead to more
fraud and theft. Washington, D.C.
should get its security systems bet-
ter perfected before continuing its
paperless campaign.

We had a great time with fellow
Democrats at the Pinellas County
Democratic Party's inaugural ball
at the Gulfport Casino on Monday
night. The crowd numbered 200
to 300-at the black-tie, $100-per-
person party. We continue to be
impressed with that county's lead-
ership. The chair, Mark Hanisee, is
doing a wonderful job. Photos from
the event are on page 18.

The vote on an $8.25 million tax-
payer gift to enable Bass Pro Shops
to sell crank baits, spinner baits
and Sassy Sally Swimbaits will
come up before the Board of County
Commissioners of February 6.
The money would be used for
road improvements that would
have, normally been funded by
the developer. All of this to lure
minimum wage jobs that offer no
benefits or useful experience.
The problem with helping one
business over another with public
dollars is that many in the public
expect more than just business-as-
usual from the recipient.
St. Petersburg gave money to
help Sweetbay build a store in
Midtown. Now Sweetbay is closing
it down. Plant City gave incentive
money to the Smithfield Plant.
Later, the corporation refused to
give its union workers at the plant
a dime raise. The plant closed in
2009.
So what are we going to get out
of Bass Pro? Will they close this
location in a few years because of
the economy or their own bad busi-
ness decisions? Will they refuse to
hire local union labor when building
their store? Will they refuse to hire
non-white workers, as they have
been accused in Houston's courts?'
They have already sued a local busi-
ness for trademark infringement.
What's next?
Whatever it is, we're sure they
will disappoint.

U.S. Senator Marco Rubio has
been receiving a lot of praise and
press for his changing position on
immigration..
Excuse us if we don't jump for
joy. Rubio's sudden embrace of the


iv- 1^ fy

immigration issue isn't driven by
soul-searching; it's driven by poll-
ing. If he wants to be president, he
has to get past this immigration
dilemma.
There is no good path to the
presidency for Republicans if they
continue to perform so poorly with
Hispanics, and certainly a Hispanic
Republican who fails with that
group outside of Florida is doomed.
Rubio thinks his latest effort will
help him, but he still has a big prob-
lem with his immigration policy. It's
called hypocrisy.
He wants the system to favor
new immigrants because of their
skills and not their blood relations.
He believes this country currently
favors allowing an unskilled grand-
mother to emigrate here to be with
her children and grandchildren
than a computer-savvy young man
or woman without U.S. relations.
The problem is he only wants to
apply this standard to Mexicans,
Colombians and Venezuelans. For
his own Cuban family, Cuban close
friends and Cuban community;
the only qualification is to have
a professed hatred of the Castro
brothers.
Rubio also dreamed up a new
pathway to citizenship for illegals
you know, these foreigners who
just show up and won't go home.
His vision is to make them pay
a fine, learn. English and clear a
criminal background check just to
earn some sort of yet-to-be-defined
interim legal status. They would
then have to apply for a green card
and work their way to citizenship.
This could mean some who have
been here for 10 years illegally
might face another 10 years at the
minimum to become a member of
the Promised Land:
This process is very deliberate
and doesn't allow illegals to jump
ahead of the current immigrants
legally in line.
Once again, his plan is for every-
one but Cubans. They don't have to
pay a fine for just showing up here.
Instead they get a $300 stipend and
become instantly eligible for Medic-
aid, Medicare and Social Security.
Cubans don't have to learn English
for a green card. Also, they will get
to jump ahead of everyone in the
immigration line.
If Rubio wants to be President
of the United States, he's going to
have to learn to represent everyone.
Right now, he's just the U.S. sena-
tor for the odd combination of the
Cuban-American exile community
and Tea Party extremists.

champion of Italian-Americans, in

Gasparilla II
You know that big parade
that we had last Saturday?
The one that used to be little
in size and scope?
Now it's the one that drew
way more than 100,000 spec-
tators and featured 60 cos-
tumed krewes, 140 custom-
ized floats and lots of music,
frenetic entreaties and bead-
tossing. The one that included
an air invasion, a parachute
jump and a spectacular, sky-
illuminating "Piratechnic"
extravaganza. The one that
went from 11:00 a.m. to 7:30
p.m. arid was televised by
WTVT, Channel 13. The one
with -parade-goers fueled on
funnel cakes and lemonade.
The one with a market for re-
served seating starting at $24
per person.
And, yes, the one that
looked very much like a proud
city's cool, signature parade
- and didn't involve alcohol
zones, arrests, security cam-
eras, a safe house and zero-
tolerance-for-anarchy warn-
ings.
One question: Do we really
need another one tomorrow?
Gunshine Rep Twist
Gov. Rick Scott was in our
region last week when he vis-
ited the Honeywell Aerospace
plant in Largo to promote
proposed, tax cuts for manu-*
facturing .plants and to bask
in any new Honeywell orders
that might have come in the
last two-years.'Another day at
the self-serving office.
But non-fawning media got
off message and asked him
about Florida's gun laws. In
response, Scott allowed that
it wotlddAbe proper to look at
such laws during the upcom-
ing legislative session. But,
no, we shouldn't expect any
specific recommendations or
a "c_tl' action" for reform,


explained his press secretary.
But there was an insight-
ful reference by Scott in ac-
knowledging support for a
broad legislative review of this
state's gun laws. His motiva-
tion: the tourist economy.
Imagine if visitors didn't "feel
safe" in the Gunshine State?
This wasn't just a matter of
life and death but a mat-
ter of dollars and'cents. Now
we're talking.
Maybe there's actually an
upside, however perverse,
to no limits on the number
of guns a person can buy at
one time in this state. Maybe
there's also an ironic upside
to more than a million con-
cealed-carry permits as well
as "Stand Your Ground" ven-
eration.
Indeed, Second Amend-
ment perversion and a heat-
packing culture could wind
up costing Florida business.
So, yes, there's hope on gun
policy, however crassly moti-
vated.
Port Calling
For all the high-profile at-
tention rightfully focused on
downtown from the infill-
ing of the Riverwalk and the
repurposing of property for
hotels to CAMLS and con-
certs there is no better piece
of catalytic news' for this city
than what's happening over at
the Port of Tampa.
As has become evident,
the future of this critical cog
in Tampa's economic growth
is in diversification to more
(containerized), job-generat-
ing general cargo. That's how
Tampa will realize its potential
as the true gateway to Latin
'i America. That's the course it's
obviously charting.
To that end, earlier this
month the port authority
board approved an incentive
agreement with Mediter-


ranean Shipping Co. That
means the. world's second
largest shipping container line
will be. helping to sell Tampa.
And what helped to sell MSC
on Tampa was the relative
success of the incumbent Zim
Integrated Shipping Services,
the recently completed rail
loop that enables containers
to be off-loaded directly from
ships to trains, and the 1-4
Connector now nearing com-
pletion.
No less notable, however,
the Port Authority got its man,
new CEO Paul Anderson, who
used to run the port of Jack-
sonville. By all accounts,
that's a marketing-and-sales
coup and worth the Florida-
top dollar .he's being paid if
only for his'political connec-
tions. He officially started last
week. It's hardly coincidental
that Raul Alfonso is coming
aboard next month as chief
commercial officer. He was
previously director of trade
development and global mar-
keting at Jaxport. Before that
he oversaw Latin American
trade and cargo containers at
the Port of Miami. He's fluent
in both Spanish and Portu-
guese.
Timing was critical. Tam-
pa has been container-chal-
lenged forever. .
'According to the Ameri-
can Association of Port Au-
thorities, the Port of Tampa
ranks 45th in the country
with slightly less than 40,000
containers handled in 2011.
It ranked 6th in Florida be-
hind Panama City (42,000),
Palm Beach (212,000),. Port
Everglades (881,000), Jack-
sonville .(900,000) and. Miami
(907,000). The top-:-ariked
container port in the U.S. is
Los Angeles (7.9 million.).

-


tion 'of the weird, misprision-
of-a-felony trial of Cortnee
Brantley, the enabling girl-
friend of the reviled Dontae
Morris, this much has cer-
tainly been clarified. Simply
not trying to give aid to the dy-
ing because of more, uh, exi-
gent needs involving a murder
suspect may get you lynched
in the court of public opinion.
But acting in- an unconsciona-
bly awful way isn't necessarily
unlawful.
Media Matters
The headline on page one
of the sports section of a lo-
cal daily read: "Lance Comes
Clean on Doping." As in the
contemptible, arrogant Lance
Armstrong publicly acknowl-
edging what he has been ly-
ing about over the years. One
problem: What's with the
first-name reference? We're
not talking about Madonna,
Beyonce or Sting here. Are
there too many letters in
"Armstrong" to accommodate
the space? Well then reconfig-
ure it. Experience laying out ai
high school newspaper is all it
takes.
Personally, I don't like the
implication that we, as read-
ers, are on such first-name
familiarity with the discred-
ited likes of Lance Armstrong.
I also prefer "Woods" to "Tiger"
and "Hogan," if not "Bollea," to
"Hulk." But, no, it's not as bad
as, say, "Dolph Found Dead in
Bunker," but it's bad enough.
He's baaack. That's right,
the post-governor, post-love-
child-with-maid, post-rele-
vant Arnold Schwarzenegger
is back with another movie,
The Last Stand. Which begs
the obvious question: Why is
there still a market for this
shameless cartoon charac-
ter's movies?
Al Pacino will play the,
late, died-in-disgrace Joe Pa-
terno in the Brian De Palma-
directed movie, Happy Valley.
I'm already cringing.
Substandards?
Not every student who
graduates from a Florida high
school has to take the FCAT.
Those who score high enough
on the traditional ACT or SAT
can bypass it. Sounds reason-
able. But this is Florida, and
nothing involving education is
ever quite so.
State education officials
have indicated that those
FCAT-bypassing scores will
likely be changing. But they
haven't said to what. Nor have
they said when. Which is all
kind of unnerving to students
who very much would like to
avoid the dreaded FCAT. And
lest we forget, it is, after all,
their educational experience
that this is all about.
So advice is being proffered
to the new education com-
missioner, Tony Bennett, in
hopes that he can straighten -
it out and fairly manage the
expectations of students with
a lot riding on the outcome.
Lost in the confusion over
timing and new numbers is
this: the current FCAT-by-
passing SAT score is 760. As
in a minimum of 420 in read-
ing and 340 in math. And, yes,


this is still based on the 1,600
system. And recall that the
reading and math numbers
were reconfigured up about
20 years ago. A 340 in math
gets you out of the FCAT? It
should get you into remedial
math class.
Foreign Fodder
Our most problematic
"ally" in the fight against Al
Qaeda and all things terror-
istic emanating from Afghani-
stan is Pakistan. Here's an-
other sobering reminder: In
Pakistan's history, no demo-
cratically elected government
has ever been succeeded by
another democratically elect-
ed one.
Iran is really, really in-
sistent that it is not pursuing
nuclear weapons. Last week a
Foreign Ministry spokesman
underscored it as only the
Islamic Republic of Iran can
underscore stuff. At a press
conference, he pointed. to the
religious decree or fatwa -
issued by the supreme lead-
er, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei,
which flat-out bans nukes. So
there.
Last week a Vietnamese
court found 14 democracy
activists guilty of subversion
and sentenced them to jail
terms ranging from three to
13 years. Officially, the United
States responded with imme-
diate criticism and again
referenced last month's gov-
ernmental detentions of hu-
man-rights bloggers. But, no,
this is no threat to normal, bi-
lateral relations. This is Viet-
nam, not Cuba.
Ultimate Irony
Regardless of the details,
how beyond ironic is it that
we're talking diversity disap-
pointments in the cabinet of
the first black president?
In Lieu Of
Indeed, what's with the
loopy signature of Treasury
Secretary nominee Jack Lew?
Is it louche, sloppy, Slinky in-
spired or maybe just written
in the loo?
Quoteworthy
"We must not lose .the
support of the United States.
What gives Israel bargaining

"There's this tendency to

During our first day in New
Jersey, the only thing more
frigid than the New Jersey
weather was the relationship
between the cousins.
My. oldest nephew came
to visit us in Tampa a few
months -back. It was the first
time he- met my new family
and I hoped he and my old-
est son would quickly become
best friends. They are the
same age and they are both
boys, so I pictured them eas-
ily getting along. That was not
the case. They were cordial
but there was a definite di-
vide.
In retrospect, it is easy to
see why. They are completely
different people. My nephew
is from New Jersey and cold
weather. My oldest is from
Florida and warm weather. My
nephew plays soccer, which
uses feet. My oldest plays bas-
ketball, which uses hands. My
nephew is quiet and shy. My
oldest is the loudest most out-
going boy I have ever known.
My nephew is a daddy's boy.
My oldest is a mamma's boy.
My nephew is too cool for
school. My oldest doesn't even
know what cool means.
For most of my nephew's
visit to Tampa, he bonded
with Ben, who looked to him
as though he was a God when
he saw him kick a soccer ball.,
For the entirety of my neph-
ew's trip, Ben, followed him
around like a dutiful dog. My
nephew relished the atten-
tion, spending most of time
trying to make Ben laugh,
which isn't very hard. Ben will
laugh at anything, even the
TV show'"Guys With Kids;"
terrible. I preferred my oldest
bond with my nephew, but I
let it slide, figuring they had
Christmas to get to know .one
another.
New Jersey began as a
continuation of Florida. I
was so close with my cous-
ins when I was a boy and I
wanted my kids and my sis-
ter's kids to have the same
relationship, even though we
live 1,200 miles apart. During
our Christmas Eve dinner at a
restaurant in Trenton, howev-
er, the older boys stared into
space whenever they were in
any situation in which they
were forced to engage one an-
other. It was not going well.
'Our middle child and my
youngest nephew had a simi-
lar relationship that night,
which is odd because outside
of their sex 4my middle is a
girl and my youngest nephew
a boy), they are exactly alike.
They are the same age. They
both tantrum over anything.
They are both so attached to
their moms you would think
they were still in the womb.
They are both shy. They both
like to dress to the nines, even
for a simple trip to the conve-
nience store.
My younger nephew didn't
come to Tampa a few months
ago, so this was the first time
he had met my family. Hell,
I hadn't seen him since he
was a baby so in a way it was
the first time he met me. It
made sense that he was shy
around us; we were absolute
strangers. Throughout Christ-
mas Eve dinner and continu-
ing into Christmas morning
when we visited my sister and
then into Christmas Day din-
ner at my parents' house, my
daughter and youngest neph-
ew stayed so far away from
one another you would have
thought one had cooties and
the other didn't know about
cootie spray.
However, my youngest


nephew and my daughter
soon found out they shared
one major similarity their
love of cookies.
Following Christmas Day
dinner, my daughter and my
youngest nephew kept disap-
pearing into the bathroom to-
gether. At first, this concerned
me. They are both mega-at-
tractive and, though cousins,
they are not blood related be-
cause my daughter is techni-
cally my step-daughter, which
means they could date outside
The South and it would be ok.
Then I remembered that they
are only 4, which meant only
one other thing COOKIESI
My daughter is a junk food
ninja, constantly pocketing
whatever sweets she can get
her hands on and sneaking to
solitude. My youngest neph-
ew has an equal affinity for
sweets and thievery.
On their fourth trip to the
bathroom, I followed them,
gave a good 10 count once
they closed the door to give
them a feeling of safety, and
then burst in. They .were
caught red handed. They had
so many cookies on them they
couldn't even eat the evidence.
I couldn't get mad; I was actu-
ally elated that they were con-
cocting plans together.
My oldest son and nephew
finally followed suit two days
later when they learned what
all boys learn in time they
both love video games! After
days of awkwardness, they
started playing video games
together and were instantly
BFFs. Boys are so easy.
The next day, with. the
four kids all getting along,
we headed out to the coolest
place of all time. I have no idea
what the name of the place
was. Normally, that would
mean the placed SUCKED.
Not this time. It was so damn
cool I never had time to look
at the name on the door ...
it was an indoor carnival! It
was Chuckle Cheese on ste-
roids. More importantly, it
was .Chuckie Cheese without
the adults with tear drops tat-
tooed on their faces! It had all
the normal games any such
place would have- the moving
basketball hoop, the dance
revolution thing-a-ma-jig and
all the stupid games that spit
out tickets you trade in for
cheap prizes.
What set this place apart
was that it had an, indoor
Merry Go Round and MAGIC
MOUNTAIN! What is Magic
Mountain?! Only the great-
est thing in the history of
mankind! It is a five story
obstacle course for kids that
has Nerf guns shooting balls,
tubes that need to be crawled
through, walls that need to be
scaled and net bridges that
need to be braved, all culmi-
nating in a slide that twists
and turns down five stories
faster than Walt Flanagan's
dog can runl
The only downside was
that an adult needs to go with
the kids and none of the ob-
stacles are large enough for
anyone larger than an Ewok.
Time and time again, my back
seized up as I squeezed myself
through tiny corridors. Why
would they have a rule that
adults need to accompany
the kids yet not make it adult
friendly at all?! I kept pray-
ing that someone would pass
me a cake that said "Eat Me."
I have to admit, though, the
slide was epic.
The fofir kids went up
Magic Mountain at least half
a dozen times, helping one

The stillness of the South-
ern forests is a remarkable
phenomenon. The norm in
these primitive and secluded
haunts is a soul calming qui-
et.
One's footsteps walking
along a forest trail, at times,
seems such a contrast to the
enveloping tranquility. To
some of us, it appears as if
each step sends an alert to the
entire animal kingdom.


In the still of a frosty morn-
ing, while sitting on a hunting
stand, the whirling of wings of
the smallest bird can be clear-
ly perceived even when not
paying attention. The hoot of
an owl, just before day break
or during early dawn, will
startle even the most experi-
enced woodsman.
Come February, March and
most of the seasonal Spring,
the pervasive quiet ceases to
be the norm of the forest. It is
so because wild turkeys, one
of the .major inhabitants of
our wilderness begin to chant
their amorous songs. This
is the; mating season for the
gloriously beautiful Florida
Osceola wild turkey.
During the next few weeks,
the flocks of turkeys begin
to regroup. The males, usu-
ally traveling together,- sepa-
rate from the hens the poults.
They begin to break away from
the male groups beginning
the courtship with the hens.
That. period, is when the most
thunderous, animated and
vulgar come-ons take place.
While turkeys use a vari-
ety of vocalizations, in early
spring, male turkeys an-
nounce their presence to fe-
males and competing males
by gobbling. Depending on lo-
cal circumstances, gobble can
carry for up to a mile. Males
also emit "clucks," "putts,"
"purrs," "yelps," "cutts,"
"whines," "cackles," and "kee-
kees." At times, they emit low-
pitched "drumming" sound;
produced by the movement of
air in the air sack in the chest.
In places where large num-
bers of wild turkeys dwell, the
woods come alive with the
sounds of amorous gobblers
seeking willing hens.
In addition to their melodi-
ous chants of lust, male tur-
keys also engage in magnifi-
cent displays of the feathery
beauty. They spread or fluff
every feather in what is com-
monly called struts.
While in strutting form,
they lower their wings along-
side their bodies, feathers
fanned-out and dragging the
ground. It is truly a sight to


behold.
Hens "yelp" to let gob-
blers know their location. The
sound the hens emit seeking
the company of toms, is also
the most common sound cre-
ated by turkey hunters to
attract males. It is sort of a
cruel joke no doubt. But one
that has been the undoing of
turkeys of all types; includ-
ing those of elevated military
ranks and socioeconomic lev-


els.
Savvy turkey hunters learn
the use of the various calls
for their purpose. The tradi-
tional box turkey call employs
a paddle attached to a cedar
box. A sound similar to that
made by a turkey is produced
by rubbing the paddle on the
sides of the box.
There are also mouth calls
consisting of latex diaphragms
attached to a semicircular
frame. Mouth calls require
lots of practice and are not for
the novice. They advantage of
mouth calls is that they leave
the hands free to manage the
usual accompaniment of the
turkey hunter; the shotgun.
That accessory will' greatly
shatter the stillness of the for-
est.
Now is the time to begin
your next turkey hunt. Pre-
season scouting is. an es-
sential element of the sport.
Walking the woods quietly,
listening and looking for the
signs the turkeys leave in the
forest is a game of patience
and knowledge.
At this time of the year, the
tell-tale signs that turkeys are
in a region can be found in
oak groves, sandy spots along
bodies of water or in clearings
along or among pine stands.
Scratch marks made by the
turkey's, long-nailed toes,
feathers and droppings can

Whether one decides to

SIn Context
By Doris Weathetford


I was so depressed after the
2002 election that I looked for
something to take my mind
off of politics. -When the
Girl Scouts asked for help in
fundraising,. I said no but I
added that I would like some
contact with girls. They sup-
plied a group who were six or
seven years old, largely home-
schooled, and living nearby.
We created an unconventional
troop that met at the Thono-
tosassa library and focused
on reading. I'gave paperback
books to the girls, and we read
classics such as Black Beauty
'and Pollyanria.
We met there until the li-
brarian complained about
cookie crumbs on the floor,
and then -we moved to my
house. We cooked and ate
and played games and went
on field trips and made many
happy memories. The six-
year-olds now are sixteen and
in public high schools, but
when they aren't piled high
with homework and school
activities, some still want to
do things with this old lady.
So on, a day that turned out
to be both Inauguration Day
and Martin Luther King Day, I
thought it was appropriate to
take them to Steve Spielberg's
"Lincoln." After making and
eating a pizza roll John Io-
rio's recipe we went to Centro
Ybor to see it. I could tell that
their parents were a bit ap-
prehensive about an Ybor the-
ater instead of Brandon, but
the timing didn't work out for
Brandon and the girls were
'thrilled-to' be in Ybor with its
pretty lights and sophisticat-
ed, Italian style theatre. It's
cleaner than Brandon, too,
and has a very friendly staff.
One rushed ta open a door for
'me when 'she saw me with a
tray of popcorn.

read reviews of it, you know
that the entire two-and-a-half
hour movie is set in January
of 1865. It's been two years
since Lincoln's Emancipa-
tion Proclamation on Janu-
ary 1, 1863; most of a year
since the Senate adopted an
amendment that would abol-
ish slavery; and Lincoln is
pressing his Cabinet and sup-
portive congressmen to push
the amendment through the
House.
Thus especially at the be-
ginning, when there is a lot
of legalese and parliamentary
plotting, one needs a level of
knowledge that understand-
ably is beyond most teenage
girls. .The movie nonetheless
held their attention, particu-
larly the parts on Mary Todd
Lincoln and sons Tad and
Robert, and they were glad
that they saw it. But Spiel-
berg could, have done a better
job of explicating the issues
and introducing the various
politicians. I'm delighted that
he's bringing this bit of politi-
cal history to an era that long
has emphasized only military
history, but almost everyone -
even historians -- could have
used more context and'expli-
cation. Here's some.
The Emancipation Proc-
lamation often is cited as a
huge hypocrisy: it liberated
slaves only in areas where the
federal government was not in
charge. It did not free slaves
in the border states of Mis-
souri, Tennessee, Kentucky,
and Maryland. Lincoln fo-
cused on keeping those states
in the Union, and he did not
want to upset the upper class-
es there by depriving them of
their human property.
He also argued that he
had 'no right 'to do so with-
out a Constitutional Amend-
ment abolishing state laws on
slavery but he believed that
under his .var powers as com-
mander in chief, he did have


the right to issue the Eman-
cipation Proclamation. The
proclamation, in his view, was
more a military tactic than a
document proclaiming per-
sonal freedom. His army of-
ficers read it to slaves as they
conquered rebellious states,
and the aim was not so much
to abolish slavery as a legal in-
stitution, but instead to inflict
harm on the Confederacy by
depriving it of its labor supply.
In Tampa, for example,
emancipation was announced
on May 6, 1864, after a small
battle in which naval Union
forces took Fort Brooke from
the Home Guard (the equiv-
alent of today's National
Guard, largely composed of
men too old to join the Con-
federate army). Many of the
newly freed slaves, called
contrabands, joined up with
Union forces to the dismay
of most generals, who were
not equipped to deal with
thousands of civilians follow-
ing the troops that liberated
them.
But in the border states
and as far north as Delaware,
slavery remained legal. Dela-
ware, in fact, was the, last to
abolish it, in December 1865,
when the Thirteenth Amend-
ment was added to the Con-
stitution. Thus the war truly
was about states' rights, and
whether or not a state could
maintain slavery within its
borders as well as whether
or not individual states could
secede from the United States.
And at least five of the
states that were ostensibly
Union not only still had slav-
ery, but also had votes in
Congress. Nor were all con-
gressmen from 'non-slave
states such as New York and
Connecticut necessarily in fa-
vor of abolition in the South.
They had trade ties there and
saw this profound change to
the economy as excessively
liberal.

So the Emancipation Proc-
lamation was not enough,
and people who aimed to
completely and permanently
abolish slavery pressed for an
amendment to the US Consti-
tution that would do so. The
founders deliberately made
the Constitution very diffi-
cult to change: it requires
two-thirds of both houses of
Congress and ratification by
three-quarters of the state
legislatures. Moreover, at the
time of the Civil War, it really
never had been done.
The first ten amendments
. are the Bill of Rights, added in
1797 shortly after the Consti-
tution itself was written. The
Eleventh and Twelfth were
largely housekeeping chang-
es, intended to clarify points
that had been omitted. The
Eleventh, added in 1798, was
legalese on the judiciary, and
the Twelfth, added in 1804,
spelled out the methodology of
electing the president. (It was
needed because Vice Presi-
dent Aaron Burr treacherous-
ly claimed that he had been
elected president in 1800 be-
cause he received the same
number of electoral votes as
his running mate, Thomas
Jefferson. Yes, politicians re-
ally were much worse in those
days!)
Thus the Constitution es-
sentially never had been
amended -on an issue that af-
fected everyone. It was in fact
hard to do, and as-the movie
makes clear, the pro-amend-
ment forces needed twenty
House votes at the beginning
of January 1865. By Janu-
ary 31st, they had them but
not by the principled methods
that modern people like to as-
sign to the past.
Lincoln's trusted officials
paid several hard-drinking,
profanity-laden men as go-
betweens to make deals. The
easiest -pickings were con-
gressmen who had lost their
seats in the November 1864
election and were looking for
new jobs in January 1865.
There was no civil service sys-
tem then (read "bureaucracy,"
in the language of the his-
torically ignorant), and it was
routine for elected officials to
give patronage positions to
their political supporters.
Lincoln and his pro-
amendment supporters were
no different, and they went
though lists of potential jobs
and lame-duck congress-
men whose votes they need-
ed. Some congressmen stood
firm on what they regarded
as principle, but the movie
shows one about-to-be-un-
employed man selling his vote
for human liberty merely to be
postmaster of a small town.
Others took cash.
And that was how the Thir-
. teenth Amendment passed
the House of Representatives.
Although presidents have no
official role in constitutional
amendments, Lincoln signi-
fied his approval by signing
the joint resolution of Con-
gress, and it went to the states
for ratification on February 1.
The movie does not follow the
ratification effort and instead
foreshadows Lincoln's death
on April 14. The final scenes

show young Tad grieving -
and Tad himself would die
soon after his father. Mary
Todd Lincoln already had lost
two children by that point,
and her fragile sanity would
go over the edge.
The film is faithful to the
facts in showing both Lincolns
as in need of modern anti-de-
pressants, but it is wildly over
the top in its depiction of the
relationship between Mary
Todd Lincoln and her dress-
maker, a black woman named
Elizabeth Keckley. She was
so talented that she managed
to buy her freedom, as well as
that of her half-white son, who
died in battle in 1861. Before
the war, she also had been
dressmaker to Varina Howell
Davis while Jefferson Davis
was a senator and before the
Davises moved to Richmond,
where he was president of the
Confederacy.
Keckley, of course, stayed
in Washington, and it is- true
that the First Lady confided
in her and that Mrs. Keckley
brought- Mrs. Lincoln solace
when no one else could. The
movie goes far beyond the
true scene, however, when it
several times portrayed the
two women sitting together in
the House gallery. Even now,
First Ladies rarely watch con-
gressional debates, and cer-
tainly none in that era would
have taken an African-Ameri-
can employee as a guest. The
fascinating facts of Keckley's
life are enough why do film-
makers insist on omitting
much of what is real while
adding inaccurate embellish-
ments?
And although two other ob-
scure women were shown to
have political opinions, nei-
ther was an abolitionist leader
while in reality, thousands of
white women were fundamen-
tal to black freedom. Among
them were Susan B. Anthony
and Elizabeth Cady Stanton.
Stanton was so dedicated
to the cause that she went to
the World Anti-Slavery Con-
ference in London in 1840 -
on her honeymoon. Her femi-
nism began there, when male
delegates refused to seat her
and other women who were
duly elected by abolitionist so-
cieties. In 1848, she and Phil-
adelphia's Lucretia Mott orga-
nized the first women's rights
gathering in Stanton's home-
town of Seneca Falls, New
York and I was so pleased to
hear President Obama men-
tion Seneca Falls in his Inau-
gural Address!
Thus by the time that Lin-
coln got around to working for
the Thirteenth Amendment,
these and countless other
women had been toiling in
that field for decades. Even
though they lacked the vote
(and the biggest uproar in the
movie was when a congress-
man mentioned the possibility
that if black men could vote,
women also might demand it),
no one ever questioned wom-
en's right to petition. This
was their main political tool.
Astute politicians them-
selves, Anthony and Stanton
suspended activism for wom-
en's rights during the war and
instead formed an organiza-
tion called the Loyal League.
Hundreds of women attended
its founding meeting in New
York City, including such lu-
minaries as Lucy Stone, An-
gelina Grimke Weld, and the
Reverend Antoinette Brown
Blackwell. It was intended
to put pressure on Lincoln to
abolish slavery, and it suc-
ceeded in that goal. In just
a little more than a year, the
Loyal League had 5,000 mem-
bers who collected almost

ARIES (March 21 to April
19) You might feel bolder as
each new. success falls into
place. But caution is still ad-
vised through the end of the
week. Until then, a step-by-
step approach is best.
TAURUS (April 20 to May.
20) That cooperation you re-
quest could come at too high
a price. Since few can beat
the Bovine at being clever and
resourceful, why not see what
you can do on your own?
GEMINI (May 21 to June
20) Aspects favor a quieter
time spent getting closer to
the people who are especially
important to you. There's al-
ways much more to learn and
appreciate about each other.
CANCER (June 21 to July
22) The concerned Crab will
act to resolve workplace mis-
understandings before they
get out of hand and cause
more-serious problems. Co-
workers rally to support your
efforts.
LEO (July 23 to August
22) What the Big Cat might
see as a disturbing act of dis-
loyalty might just be a failure
of communication on both
sides. Take time for mediation
rather than confrontation.
VIRGO (August 23 to Sep-.
tember 22) Be more patient
with those who seem unwill-
ing to accept your version
of what's right. The fact is,
there's a lot more to learn on
all sides of this issue.
LIBRA (September 23 to
October 22) It should be eas-
ier to assess the facts you'll
need to make an important de-


than later.
Ben was a devil on the
plane.
My parents' house was a
nightmare.
New Jersey was cold.
But my kids and my neph-
ews are more than cousins by
name now.
That alone made the trip to
New Jersey worth it.
And that is the end of the
Guzzo Christmas Vacation ...
or is it?


cision. But don't commit if you
still have doubts. There could
be more you need to know.
SCORPIO (October 23 to
November 21) Your excite-
ment level remains high as
you continue working on that
new project. Expect some
setbacks. But on the whole,
all will move pretty much on
schedule.
SAGITTARIUS (Novem-
ber 22 to December 21) It
might be wise to be more pru-
dent with expenses right now.
But your financial situation
should soon clear up, and
you could be back shopping,
happily as ever.-
CAPRICORN (December
22 to January 19) You might
prefer sticking with your cur-
rent schedule. But some new-
ly emerging information could
persuade you to consider a
change. Keep an open mind.
AQUARIUS (January 20
to February 18) You might
want to reject a suggested
change. But it could be wise
to go with the flow, at least
for a while. You can always
return to your first plan if you
like.
PISCES (February 19 to
March 20) You're bolstered
by both the practical and
poetic sides of your nature
as you maneuver through
sonie unsettled -emotional
situations. Things ease up by
week's end.
BORN THIS WEEK: People
reach out to your generos-
ity and wisdom, and consider
you a trusted and treasured
friend.
