The election for the chair of the
Florida Democratic Party was a
fiasco, according to those in atten-
dance complex rules, changing
standards, non-qualified proxy
votes being included and votes
being thrown out. It was as if the
supervisor of elections from Moscow
oversaw the vote of the Big Tent
Party.
Allison Tant was victorious over
Alan Clendenin. She quickly cut out
the losing side and shut down any
opportunity to heal over what was
a divisive election.
She already appointed her vice


chairs Alison Morano, Annette
Taddeo and Rick Boylan and
appears to be turning a deaf ear
to the other side. There are even
whispers of retribution from the
winning camp.
We hope Democrats avoid ran-
sacking the Party for the spoils and
instead reach out and bring the
group together for what promises
to be a rough 2014.

We hear April Griffin will an-
nounce her candidacy for County
Commissioner District 7 and that

Obama: "Ha llegado la hora de una

reform migratoria integral"


El president Barack Oba-
ma dijo este martes que "ha
ilegado la hora de una reform
migratoria integral", durante
una alocuci6n en Las Vegas,
Nevada, para lanzar una cam-
pafia plblica national a favor
de la media.
Durante la conferencia de
prensa, el president de Esta-
dos Unidos afirm6 que su pais
no debe olvidar que es una
naci6n formada por inmigran-
tes. "Muchos olvidan que ellos
soliamos ser nosotros, es muy
important que recordemos
nuestra historic", afiadi6 un
Obama vitoreado por un publi-
co entusiasta.
El mandatario asegur6
igualmente que existe concilia-
ci6n political entire repuiblicanos
y dem6cratas en el Congreso;
sin embargo, aclar6 que si esa
propuesta no camina y no se
aprueba, 61 mismo enviara un
proyecto migratorio para que se
apruebe.
Por su parte, el portavoz de
la Casa Blanca, Jay Carney,
consider este martes que hay
un creciente "consenso" y sefia-
les "prometedoras" para que el
Congress apruebe este aflo una
reform migratoria integral.
Por el moment, ocho sena-
dores de ambos partidos estan
de acuerdo en que se abra un
largo process de legalizaci6n,
pero a cambio de que se refuer-


"Necesitamos que el Congreso actie sobre un enfoque
integral que resuelva el problema de 11 millones de inmi-
grantes [indocumentados]", enfatiz6 Barack Obama.


cen aun mas los controls en
las fronteras para todos los ex-
tranjeros y se establezcan con-
diciones especificas, como por
ejempo, exigir titulos universi-
tario para los aspirantes de la
ciudadania norteamericana.
Sin embargo, es bien sabido,
que un gran nimrnero de mini-
grantes (de ayer y de hoy) no
tuvieron la oportunidad ni los
medios de educarse. Entonces,
.d6nde quedan elllos?
6Se le olvid6 al latino re-
publicano Marco Rubio que
su padre fue toda su vida un
'bartender' (cantinero)? El tra-
bajo dignifica, fuere cual fuere.
No obstante, ese padre tuvo la
oportunidad de llegar a este


pais y trabajar arduamente
para que su mismisimo hijo,
llegard hasta el Congreso. fO
no, sefior-Rubio?
En noviembre los republica-
nos fueron severamente casti-
gados en las urnas por los in-
migrantes de origen hispano.
El resultado electoral practica-
mente oblig6 a los cuatro sena-
dores republicans John Mc-
Cain, Lindsey Graham, Marco
Rubio y Jeff Flake, a sentarse a
la mesa e intentar reconquistar
el voto latino.
Se espera que la reform
migratoria sea discutida este
verano en el Senado, asi como
en el otoflo en la Camafa de Re-
presentantes.

cansar en paz. El dolor es
como un alma en pena que
nos corroe las venas..El busca
una salida, nos envia sefiales

le caso omiso. Con el tiempo,

un lenguaje propio, uno -que
es preciso aprender y com-

Algunas veces el dolor es
tan agudo, que nuestra mente
crea mecanismos de defense -

tual colapso. De alli, se crean -
las lagunas de amnesia. Sim-
plemente no recordamos. No
podemos. Duele much. La
experiencia esta bajo canda-

cimentadas del subconscien-
te. Pero el dolor, sigue alli, ca-
llado pero vivo. Nuestros ojos
estin secos pero las lagrimas
nos recorren por dentro. Muy
en el fondo de nuestra cons-
ciencia, lo sabemos.
El dolor no se evapora;
debe ser liberado y tratado
como el petalo de una rosa.
Es precise escucharlo, ro-
ciarlo con compasi6n y darle
caricias de perd6n. Para ello,


debemos tener el valor de abrir
el port6n, invitarlo al dialogo,
escucharle... Y finalmente mi-

Luego se le dice: "Te escucho..."
Lo siento... te amo... lo siento,

cuerpo, no a la inversa.

cuanto al piano evolutivo, Ile-
garin series o situaciones que
nos recordardn amargos su-
cesos para que procedamos a
cerrar el circulo de la lecci6n.

inciten a quienes tienen gatos a
mantenerlos controlados, y que

Brook L6pez encest6 16 pun-

recientemente el diario official
Juventud Rebelde.
"El muchacho no quiere se-

express al peri6dico el Comi-
sionado Nacional de Atletis-
mo. Jorge Luis Sanchez.


Dayron Robles le dice

La publicaci6n cubana
agreg6 que "no han sido acla-
rados del todo" los motives de
la separaci6n del atleta de 26
afios, el cual ha sufrido nu-
merosas lesiones en los dos
Wltimos afios.
Robles, sin dudas, uno de
los mejores vallistas de todos
los tiempos, obtuvo en 2008
el record mundial en la espe-
cialidad con 12.87 segundos,
pero fue depuesto en septiem-
bre de 2012 por el estadouni-
dense Aries Merritt, cuando
impuso un tiempo de 12.80
en Bruselas.
La noticia se une al retiro

Se desinfla la

independencia de Escocia i


El movimiento independen-
tista entire los escoceses se ha
desinflado y ha alcanzado las
cifras mds bajas desde la res-
tauraci6n de la autonomia en
1999. El apoyo a la indepen-
dencia s6lo obtuvo el 23% de
los consultados para separarse
del Reino Unido, segin un es-
tudio antial sobre actitudes so-
ciales. Hace un afio, cuando el
gobiemo nacionalista escoces
puso en march su propuesta
para un referendum, el apoyo
a la secesi6n se situaba nueve
puntos por encima, en el 32%.


y la primera mayoria absolute
de la historic para los escoceses
nacionalistas, se elev6 el apoyo
a 32%, pero la materializaci6n
de su gran promesa electoral,
la celebraci6n de un referen-
dum de independencia en el
2014, apoyado por el gobiemo
britanico el pasado mes de
octubre, parece haber enfriado
el sentimiento independentista.
En realidad, el 61% de los
escoceses defiende una Es-
cocia con parlamento propio,

Hacerse pasar por ciudadano americano
puede tener graves consecuencias
Pregunta:-Me llamo Julian y soy originario de M6xico. He vi-
vido en EE.UU. por catorce afios; Estoy indocumentado en este
pais perotengo una petici6n familiar pendiente.por medio de
mi hermano, ciudadano americano. Faltan aproximadamente
dos afios para poder solicitar mi residencia permanent pero
me ocurri6 algo el mes pasado y quisiera saber si lo que me ha
pasado podtia tener' consecuencias en el future con mi trdmite
de residencia. Hace seis meses me qued6 sin trabajo y sin po-
der hallar un nuevo empleo. Desesperado, el mes pasado, visit
uno de esos lugares que ofrecen ayuda en la comunidad, y la
persona encargada me inform que yo podria calificar para re-
cibir un subsidio por desempleo. Dicha persona me complete la
solicitud y me ayud6 a entregarla en la oficina de despempleo.
Despuls de haber reeibido mi primer cheque revise la copia de
mi solicitud de desempleo y me he dado cuenta que la persona
que me complete la solicitud marc6 en una de las preguntas que
yo soy ciudadano americano. Quisiera saber si esta solicited de
desempleo que he hecho me afectard en el future cuando solici-
te mi residencia permanent.
Respuesta: : Julian, usted tiene un gran problema ya que
este error da la impresi6n que usted se hizo pasar por ciudada-
no americano cuando solicit su beneficio de desempleo. Cuan-
do solicit su residencia permanent e Inmigraci6n sepa que
usted se hizo pasar por ciudadano americano le informard que
no calificard para su.residencia permanent Ademis, para esta
clase de delitos no. hay perd6n, aunque la persona haya sido
reclamada por cualquier otro familiar que sea ciudadano ameri-
cano. Lo inico que le puedo aconsejar es que trate de corregir
este error lo antes possible antes de que sea demasiado tarde.

CAPRICORNIO: del 24 de
diciembre al 20 de enero


Tu ambici6n y tu capacidad


de trabajo a veces pueden re-
sultar exageradas. Eres una
persona muy trabajadora y
con gran tes6n y perseverancia
para lograr lo que te propones,
pero lo mds positive para ti es
la ternura y la comprensi6n.
ACUARIO: del 21 de enero
al 19 de febrero
Es bueno que te sientas a
gusto y con tranquilidad en
tus labores, pero imprimele
un poco de dinamismo para
no dormirte en los laureles.
.No decaigas. Evita a toda costa
llegar a una depresi6n. Comu-
nicate con tus series queridos
y explicales tus problems.
Abreles tu coraz6n y liberate
de tus tristeza sin apegarte
a ellas.
PISCIS: del 20 de febrero
al 20 de marzo
No exageres los defects de
las personas que te rodean,
remarcando sus errors y
exaltando sus equivocacio-
nes. Esto puede ser motivo de
fuertes discusiones. La into-
lerancia se puede volver en tu
contra. Modera tu espiritu de

conmemorativo con
motivo del Dia Inter- .
national de la Merno-

los capitulos mds do-


lorosos en la historic

Se cont6 con la asistencia
de Vincent Genovese, C6nsul
Honorario de Italiaen Tampa;
Chaim Shacham, del Consulado
General de Israel; C6nsules
Generales de Canada, Francia,
Alemania, Grecia y M6xico.
Participaron igualmente la ra-

invitados.
Asimismo, Phil Gans y otros
siete sobrevivientes comparti-
eron sus testimonios. La activi-

ofrecido por Richard Ilnicki y
una ceremonia de encendido
de velas presidida por el rabino
David Weizman.
La tragedia del holocaust
ha sido uno de los oprobios


mas penosos de la humanidad.
Como decia de los nazis el grart
maestro Jorge Luis Borges, de-
clarado admirador del pueblo
judio, los mismos nunca termi-
naban de contradecirse, pues,
"veneran a la raza germdnnica,
pero abominan la America
sajona; condenan los articulos
de Versailles, pero aplauden
los prodigios del Blitzkrieg; son
antisemitas, pero profesan una
religion de origen hebreo; ben-
dicen la guerra submarine, pero
reprueban con vigor la pirateria
de los britdnicos; denuncian el
imperialismo, pero vindican y
promulgan la tesis del espacio
vital'(...)".
Concluye Borges su
descripci6n de la ideologia nazi
acudiendo a un vocablo que ra-
ramente utiliz6 en sus 60 ahios
de producci6n literaria: asco.
Un tninuto de silencio en
memorial de todos los series
asesinados por la barbarie nazi.


Remedios naturales para

la hipertension


Cuando el coraz6n late, bom-
bea sangre hacia las arteries
y crea presi6n en ellas. Dicha
presi6n es la que consigue que
la sangre circle por todo el cu-
erpo. Si la presi6n sube por en-
cima del limited normal-140/90
en los adultos- se produce lo
que denominamos hiperten-
si6n arterial.
Es un factor de riesgo car-
diovascular y aumenta el
peligro de derrame cerebral.
Si no se regular la tension ar-
terial, 6sta puede afectar al
funcionamiento del coraz6n, el
cerebro y los rifiones.
A continuaci6n, algunas
recomendaciones para contro-
lar la presi6n arterial:
Consumir V/2 cucharadita
diaria de cardamomo para
normalizar la presi6n en 12
semanas, segfim un studio
realizado por "The Indian Jour-
nal of Biochemistry and Bio-
physics". Esta especia ex6tica
ayuda a relajar los mfusculos
y arteries del coraz6n, lo cual
reduce el riesgo de que suba la
presi6n, explica el studio.
Mantener la postura
correct (erguida). Un reciente
studio britanico revel6 que la
presi6n arterial sube hasta un
16% al encorvarse. Cuando
nos encorvamos, las vertebras
y nervios del cuello se oprimen
y esto impide que llegue la
serial de relajaci6n al cerebro.
El beber al menos 36 onzas
diarias de t6 reduce el riesgo de
presi6n alta en un 65%, segln
un studio de "Tufts Univer-
sity". Si no puede tomar tanto
t6 verde, cambie para el negro.
Seguin los experts, ambos tes
contienen los mismos antioxi-
dantes que relajan las arteries.
El condimentar con aceite
de sesamo reduce la presi6n
arterial en 2 meses. Tambien
disminuye por un 67% la nece-
sidad de tomar medicamentos.
Contemplar una playa,
bosque o montafia, aumenta el
nivel de relajaci6n. Ello. reduce
la presion por un 9%, seginm
revel6 un studio reciente de
la Universidad de Sheffield en
Inglaterra. Resulta que el ob-
servar la naturaleza aumenta
la producci6n de ondas alfa,
las cuales calman los nervios


La hipertensi6n es una
enfermedad silenciosa
y alivian el estres, explica Jay
Winner, medico de California.
Tambien puede cambiar el
fondo de su computadora con
paisajes relajantes.
El agua de coco puede
bajar la presi6n en un 71% ,
segun un studio publicado
por "The West Indian Medical
Journal". Esto se debe a que .el
agua de coco es rica en potasio,
mineral que calma al sistema
nervioso central y absorbe el
sodio, lo cual evita que suba la
presi6n. Asegfirese que el agua
sea pura y que no contenga
azucar.
El escuchar misica cldsica
tiene un efecto relajante. SegCm
un studio de la Universidad de
Florencia en Italia. Disminuye
la presi6n porque alivia el es-
tres, calma la respiraci6n y el
ritmo cardiac.
Un studio de la Universi-
dad de Nueva York revel6 que
las mascotas tienen un impac-
to positive en la presi6n arterial
de sus duefios.
Ademas de comer bajo
en sal y evitar los carbohidra-
tos, los doctors recomiendan
hacer ejercicios para controlar
la presi6n. Segun un studio
de la Universidad de Indiana,
limpiar la casa al menos 3 veces
por semana es una alternative
al ejercicio.
Ademas de ser sumamente
aromdtica como condimento,
la canela desinflama los vasos
sanguineos y por tanto baja la
presi6n arterial.
Durante las horas de sue-
fio la presi6n arterial tiende
a bajar por la inactividad del
cuerpo. Por ello se sugiere to-
mar una siesta y descansar.
Los hipertensos deben dormir
un minimo de 8 horas diarias.
Nota: Siempre consulate a su
medico antes de hacer cambios
en su dieta o estilo de vida..

De los 1,4 millones de miembros en servicio active de las Fuerzas Armadas
estadounidenses, 205 mil son mujeres, es decir, el 14 por ciento.


"Este un paso hist6rico
para la igualdad y para
reconocer el rol que tienen las
mujeres, y que continuaran
teniendo, en la defense de
nuestra naci6n". Senadora
dem6crata Patty Murray.
En un paso hist6rico en las
,Fuerzas Armadas del pais, el
Departamento de Defensa de
Estados Unidos anunci6 hoy
oficialmente su decision de le-
vantar la prohibici6n de que las
mujeres sirvan en primera linea
de combat.
Enmendar el desfase es el
objective ante una realidad cada
dia mis evidence: las mujeres
ya estaban involucradas en
las areas de combat en Irak
y Afganistan pero no recibian
reconocimiento official por
ello. Hasta 2012, m6s de 280
mil mujeres han sido enviadas
a Irak y.Afganistan, 800 han
resultado heridas y 130 han
muerto en esas dos guerras. -
El portavoz de la Casa Blan-
ca, Jay Carney, asegur6 que el
president de Estados Unidos,
Barack Obama, apoya la de-
cisi6n del Pentagono.
El pasado noviembre cuatro
mujeres militares demandaron
al Departamento de Defensa de
EE.UU. para que ponga fin a la
prohibici6n de que las mujeres
no puedan servir en primera
linea de combat, por considerar
que es una media inconstitu-
cional.
Con la revocaci6n de esta
normativa, otros 230 mil po-
sibles empleos abren sus puer-
tas a las mujeres, sobre todo en
el Ej6rcito y en la infanteria de
Marina.
Se espera que Le6n Panetta
abandon la secretaria de De-
fensa a mediados de febre-
ro. El elegido de Obama para
sustituirle, el senador Chuck
Hagel, ya estA al tanto del nuevo
el rol asignado a las mujeres en
el servicio military.
"Como secretario de Defensa,


EiHemos
Sestado en
combat
porANOS!


Las mujeres ya estaban involucradas en las tareas de
combat en los conflicts b6licos de Irak y Afganistin pero
no recibian reconocmiento official. Se estima que 280 mil de
ellas participaron activamente en ambas guerras.


s6 que abrir mis oportunidades
a nuestros hombres y mujeres
uniformados mejor cualificados
fortalecer. nuestra habilidad
para luchar y ganar guerras",
dijo el secretario de Defensa,
Leon. Panetta, en un acto en el
Pentagono en homenaje a Mar-
tin Luther King.
Finalmente se corrige esta
desigualdad y esta political de
exclusion, vigente por la nor-
mativa establecida en 1994,
la cual prohibia a las mujeres
ser asignadas a las unidades
terrestres de batalla por debajo
del nivel de brigada.
Llevaban aiios en el frente
de combat; pero no podian
ser asignadas para patrullar en
un batall6n o disparar. Traba-
jaban como m6dicos, pilotando
helic6pteros o recabando infor-
maci6n de inteligencia.
La transici6n serd paulatina.
No obstante se estima que a
partir de 2016, las uniforma-
das podrdn ser oficialmente
autorizadas a combatir en los
frentes de batalla.

Le grotte di Toirano


Continuiamo questa
settimana nella nostra ricerca
di luoghi -d' Italia che sono
sconosciuti alla maggior parte
dei turisti che visitano 1' Italia,
posti magari sconosciuti alla
maggior parte degli stessi


Italiani che vivono appunto
in Italia.
Attraverso, come sempre, i
nostri canali di ricerca siamo
venuti a conoscenza di questo
borgo del nord dell' Italia e delle
sue grotte.


Procopio and Corso to Wed


In provincia di Savona, poco
distant dal borgo di Toirano
sorge il complesso delle Grotte
di Toirano, particolarmente
noto perched al suo interno
furono ritrovate tracce
dell'homo sapiens e resti di
ursus spelaeus di circa 25.000
anni di eta. Meta ideale per una
divertente e acculturata gita
alla scoperta dei luoghi meno
noti del nostro Paese.
Il complesso speleologico,
gestito direttamente dal
Comune, e composto dalla
Grotta della Basura (strega, in
dialetto), scoperta .nel 1950;
la Grotta del Colombo e la
Grotta Inferiore e Superiore di
Santa Lucia. Particolarmente
interessante per la varietA di
forme di stalattiti e stalagmiti,
e un mondo veramente
affascinante.
Tra tutte le grotte del-
gruppo, la piua spettacolare
e sicuramente la Grotta
della B.sura nel cui interno
interno sono visibili moltissime
impronte di mani e di ginocchia.
La parte piu interessante? La
cosiddetta Sala dei Misteri,
collocata nella parte finale
della grotta. Purtroppo
la misteriosa location non
e visitabile per motivi di
conservazione. Nell'interno
della Sala si trovano 7 impronte
di piedi ricoperte da un velo
calcareo e diverse pallottole
di argilla inserite nella parete
di fondo. Probabilmente una
cerimonia di iniziazione per
i giovani- cacciatori in erba.
Un'altra chicca e il piccolo


laghetto, "casa" del Niphargus,
una specie di minuscolo
gambero trasparente di epoca
preistorica. La Basura fu per
millenni il rifugio dell'Ursus
spelaeus (orso delle caverne)
di cui oggigiorno restano
come testimonianza del suo
passaggio (la grotta era il luogo
dove trascorreva il .letargo):
impronte, unghiate sulle pareti
e un numero consistent di rest
ossei. Inoltre, di particolare
interesse archeologico, i resti
ossei (piedi, mani e ginocchia)
di uomini del Paleolitico
superior, present sempre
nella Sala dei Misteri.
Dalla sala terminal della
Grotta della Basura, il percorso,
ricavato dallo scavo in una
grandiosa colata di alabastro,
prosegue verso la Grotta di
Santa Lucia Inferiore. La cavitA
present delle particolarissime
disposizioni a forma di flori,
format da sottili cristalli di
aragonite, che ricoprono le sue
pareti. Un vero spettacolol
Le sale hanno dimension
veramente estese e
custodiscono maestose
stalattiti ricoperte anch'esse
da aragonite. Dalla grotta di
Santa Lucia Inferiore si giunge
all'aperto sul lato opposto della
montagna rispetto a quello di
entrata.
Ma le grotte visitabili non.
si concludono con la grotta
di Santa Lucia Inferiore,
pochi metri piu in alto di
quest'ultima si trova infatti
la grotta quasi omonima, la
grotta di Santa Lucia Inferiore.


Nota fin dall'epoca medioevale,
ospita al suo interno un
Santuario del XV e XVI sec.
Mentre la Grotta del Colombo,
attualmente non visitabile a
causa della preziositA delle
testimonianze archeologiche,
e un'ampia galleria di 50
metri con una sala laterale
di notevole dimension. Gli
scavi hanno portato alla luce
numerose testimonianze di
occupazione umana a partire
da circa 300.000 anni fa.
Toirano, in provincia di
Savona, & un caratteristico
borgo posto a pochi chilometri
di distanza sia dal mare che
dall'entroterra nell'ampia
vallata del torrente Varatella.
La sua storia parte dall'eta
preistorica quando antiche
popolazioni liguri la scelsero
come loro dimora. Ma e il
period medioevale che ha
lasciato la sua maggiore
impronta. Ii centro storico
conserve infatti l'assetto
tipico di quel -periodo con il
caratteristico centro storico e le
antiche borgate dai nomi curiosi
quali: "Barescione", "Dari",
"Crociata", "Braida." Da non
lasciarsi scappare una visit
alla antica Certosa. Posta a
nord di Toirano, 1'antco edificio
fu la dimora dei Certosini che,
subentrati ai Benedettini nel
1315, trasferirono la sede
dell'Abbazia dal Monte San
Pietro a fondo valle. Di notevole
interesse storico artistic il
campanile e la chiesa dedicate
in origine a San Pietro in
Vincoli.


Salvatore and Liberata Procopio proudly announce the
upcoming wedding of their son, Joseph, to Lindsay
Corso, daughter of Paul and Jerrine Corso. The couple
will unite their families February 2, 2013, at Sacred
Heart Catholic Church, with. the reception to follow at
The Floridan Palace Hotel in downtown Tampa.

Clearly, they were
keeping numbers
officially in the
back, but they "I thrive o
allowed me to i
partake, which it adve
sparked my love no)
of politics. It's
just in my blood.
"I remember my grandfa-
ther taking me to a county
commission meeting. My
parents treated and spoke to
me like an adult. I was very
savvy at a young age because
of that. My grandfather said
to me, 'You're going to watch
your grandfather get chewed
up.' I said, Why?' He said,
'Because there are people who
want to stop progress.' He
was an incredibly intelligent
man. He was very much into
herpetology, botany and agri-
culture. My grandparents had
lots of citrus...acres of it. I re-
member watching them light
bonfires to keep them' warm
in the winter time. I was even
called to help. There's just a
real connection here for me."
His grandfather left a siz-
able legacy in his commu-
nity. "My grandfather basi-
cally built Green Key Beach
it's the only.public beach in
Pasco County. When he died,
they named it after him post-
humously. If you go there,
there are a lot of signs and
a picture of my grandfather
is on the very back of a sign
with the letter he wrote to the
commission the day it was
completed. That's the feather
in his cap."
His grandmother, Eliza-
beth, had Tampa roots,'
graduating from Hillsbor-
ough High School. "My grand-
mother was from the Hanlon
family. They laid bricks all
over Tampa. She lived on the
river...there has always been
this really ...deep connection


between Tampa, me and my
family. We've actually laid our
fingers in the community...
we helped to build it." Billi
makes his home in Seminole
Heights, residing four blocks
from where his grandmother
was raised. His memories of
her are very much still alive:
"I work in my yard a lot. My
grandmother was big on
that... I used to work, with


Charles Bilui


n challenge and I never back
rsity and hurdles fuel me. I'm
thing." Photo by Robert Azmi

her, in her yard. It was quality
time we would spend togeth-
er. Those are memories that
bring me a sense of comfort
and peace, so when I spend
time in my yard, it's kind of
like I'm spending time with
my grandma."
After graduating from Gulf
High School, Billi went to the
University of South Florida,
working as a disc jockey to
help finance his education.
He interned at Channel 8 be-
fore being hired as a producer
at WTOG, Channel 44.
"This, was when they did
44 News at 10. We were going
head-to-head with Channel
13. We were pulling four, fives
and sixes in the ratings and
they could not figure out how
this little station with no com-
puters was able to compete.
That was because the product
was so fresh... and you think
about Barbara Callahan, who
was an icon of news in this
community. For her to be able
to leave her 'Big Journalism'
roots and seamlessly transi-
tion into a flashy, edgy, high-
story count newscast and be
able to' sell it that was one
of the biggest lessons for me."
The late Callahan would
prove to be Billi's mentor and
a tough boss. "Barbara Cal-
lahan is probably the person
who -had the most influence
over my life," he related. She
.often took him to task. "She
would say, What is this? How
can you write that? This is in-
appropriate... this is not right.
You've buried the lead; do it
again.' At the time, I felt like


I was being beaten up. In ret-
rospect, it didn't take long
for me to understand that
she was on my side. I'm very
image-driven. What appears
on the screen is very impor-
tant, to me, because I think
the audience deserves that.
I don't want hairs on their
collar, dandruff and stuff on
their face... I want them to
-look professional. That's the
producer's job...
you know who
told me that's
my job? Barbara
Callahan."
His first on-
air job was in
Mlacon, Geor-
gia. at WGXA. "I
\as only there
for four months,
because I was
discovered by a
talent scout who
had a connection
with the news di-
rector at the CBS
station in Cleve-
land, WOIO. 'To
make a long sto-
rv short, he said,
'Send a tape.' I
,never thought
I would be able
to be hired in a
market that size
with only four
months of expe-
rience in front of
the camera. How
did I do it? Like
I do everything
huith aplomb and
tT Lsto.
BiLU's style of
reporting soon
garnered him at-
tention. "It's the
in-your face,
punch-in-the-
gut, straight-to-
the-jaw sort of re-
porting that I do. I
don't try to sound
down from like a journalist
I'm a person.
afraid of I want to talk to
itia. the audience like
they're people, so
they connect with me."
Billi was in Cleveland for a
year-and-a-half before going
to WSVN in Miami. "WSVN is
the powerhouse in Miami," he
said. Once again, his on-air
personality made an impact.
"People have always said the
same thing: 'I don't know,
Charlie, there's just some-
thing about you....we. believe
you.' It's because what you
see on the camera is real. I
don't sugar-coat it; I don't
have an agenda. This is the
way it is. You may not like it,
but I'm going to serve it up to
you, hot and fresh."
During his 12 years at
WSVN, he covered a variety
of stories, encompassing war
reporting, interviewing dig-
nitaries including President
George W. Bush, Hillary Clin-
ton and Kofi Annan, and be-
ing on the scene when Cuban
boy Elian Gonzalez was seized
from his relatives' home by
federal agents in Miami.
Billi has covered news from
both sides of the desk, as a
reporter and an anchor. He
related that he found equal
popularity in both positions.
"If you're a really good report-
er, people are going to be at-
tracted to you in that respect.
If you're a really good anchor,
people will be attracted to you
in that respect. I do both, so
I get the best of both worlds;
I do both jobs. They're very
different from each other...
you just have to connect with
people."
Still, in spite of his success
in that market, Billi thought


about coming back home. "I
was offered a couple of jobs in
Tampa in the past, but I was
under contract at WSVN...
I couldn't leave. I knew the
chances of timing, lining up
whether I was able to leave
at the end of my contract and
another station having an
opening... there are four jobs
per market for male anchors.
That's tough competition. I
just figured it's time to do my
own thing and I wanted to
come back home to Tampa.
I was willing to take a risk,
which is something I always
do.
"When my contract was
up at WSVN, I didn't sign. It
was just time for me to leave.
It was an amicable split. I
worked through the last day
of my contract. I started my
website, bigtampa.com. In the
meantime, the planets were
aligning for me."
Making his move even risk-
ier was the fact that Tampa,
ri television news, is consid-
ered a "terminal market." "A
terminal market means peo1.
ple come and stay here, for
a long time, because there's
no reason to leave. You have
a beautiful city, a low cost of-
living, a high quality of life,
no state income tax, sun-
shine, beaches, parties, pa-
rades, costumes, beads and
pirates. What more could you
possibly want? That's why
people stay," he said with a
laugh. "Tampa's a very diffi-
cult market to get into po-
sitions don't open very often.
I knew if I stayed. [in Miami],
I would be stuck there, be-
cause the chance for me to go
and *somebody having a job
available...it's a needle-in-a-
haystack thing."
While waiting for that nee-
dle-in-a-haystack, Billi dedi-
cated himself to his website.
"Big Tampa was everything
everyone said Tampa could
never be it was edgy, sophis-
ticated and beautiful, full of
people and events. Big Tam-
pa didn't cover the common
things; Big Tampa covered the
best things, the most cosmo-
politan, the most cutting-edge
anything new and fresh," he
enthused. Billi soon found he
had put himself in a position
to receive good fortune.
Billi's gamble would pay off
and the risk he took allowed
him to achieve his dream of
working in the Tampa mar-
ket. "When the Channel 10
opportunity presented itself,
I jumped on it because of the
people who were involved my
boss, Peter Roghaar, who was
educated at WSVN and knew
of my work and knew what I
could bring to the table...I saw
the open door. This was finally
my chance to get back into the
Tampa market after 15 years
and bring some heat, bring
some sizzle." In May 2012, he
was hired at WTSP.
His transition, he stressed,
was not difficult: "A lot of
people have asked me, Was


it hard transitioning from
Miami to Tampa?' They say,
Well, Tampa is much slower
than Miami.' Don't let anyone
kid you Tampa runs and op-
erates just as fast as Miami,
just in a different way. Miami
is much more bold and asser-
tive in the way they do things.
Tampa is more conservative
and measured. In a way, I
think that's a good thing, be-
cause it controls growth and
they way things develop. At
the same time, if you control
it too much, you can stifle its
growth. You have to find a
happy medium."
His new position allowed
him to fulfill another lifelong
dream: reporting from the
Tampa skyline. "It was some-
thing I always wanted to do
since I was a child," he said
with pride. "Another highlight
was the Republican National
Convention. What a huge
event that was for our com-
munity,- what exposure. Ev-
erything was positive. I have
to say that Mayor Buckhorn
and the City leaders did an
exemplary job protecting this
city."
His homecoming has been
a warm one. "It's been an
overwhelmingly positive ex-
perience. I thank them. I hear
already, 'Charles, -I love to
watch First at Five, because
it exciting.' That's what we
bring to the newscast we
bring some sizzle and bang.
Tampa always had great news
that's not the problem," he
stated. "We've got great jour-
nalists in this town. We have
great journalists at every sta-
tion. Unfortunately, we aon't
know how to package news
here...I. think that's what I
bring. It's more of a produc-
tion and a show, with every-
thing that I do, reporting or
anchoring. I think the audi-
ence appreciates how much
I work, because I do I bust
my backside. I do a lot of
work, in a very short amount
of time, getting ready for that
five o'clock show. People rec-
ognize that."
Billi emphasized his per-
sonal vision for Tampa. Bay.
"I will be very honest. The
reason why I came back to
Tampa is because I wanted to
have some sort of influence...I
wanted to help shape it and
push it forward. I want it to be
a bigger, bolder and more vi-
brant place to live, advocating
for progressive, edgy, iconic
events that put Tampa on the
map. Tampa, in my opinion,
is a diamond. It needs tor be
polished. I want to help pol-
ish it.
"How do you do that? By
doing what I'm doing coming
into everyone's homes, sitting
down withth em in their living
rooms and telling them what's
going on in their city, doing it
in a positive, exciting and 'vi-
brant way. That's how I think
I help frame Tampa. And who
knows... in the future, I might
go even further."

(Continued from page 1)
a domestic partner registry and
using his own religious view as an
excuse, was surprising to us. We
thought the commissioner would
start moving towards the middle
in his attempt to outgrow his con-
servative East Hillsborough County
seat and become more appealing to
a countywide audience. His com-
ments, which were better suited
for the pulpit than the dais, erased
that thought. from our mind. Hig-
ginbotham appears to be speaking
directly to the far religious right
and Tea Party extreme with his
words and vote.
This could make him as success-
ful as Ronda Storms in garnering
votes outside the Bible Belt.

While we were on the subject
of the Commission's vote on the
Domestic Partnership Registry, we
want to delve into other commis-
sioners' votes.
In case you're not familiar with
the registry, it allows non-married
partners to register their names
with the County in order to have
rights to visit their loved ones in
hospitals, be informed of their con-
ditions and have rights to make
burial arrangements. The registry
doesn't imply marriage. It is not
just for gays. With our large elderly
population, it's likely to be used by
more heterosexuals than same-sex
partners.
County Commissioner Victor
Crist voted against the registry.
We remember Commissioner Crist
approaching us, worried that he
could lose his reelection against Tea
Party candidate Sharon Carter if
he didn't get Democratic votes. He
was in a universal primary where
all registered voters, regardless
of party, could vote for him. He
sold himself as moderate and won
handily with strong support from
Democrats. Democrats should re-
member his vote was to please the
Tea Party, not the moderates who
put him in his seat.
Commissioner Ken Hagan reject-
ed the registry along the lines that
the registry was big government.
He felt that people could accomplish
the goals of the registry with their
own resources by hiring an attorney
to draw up a medical power of at-
torney and other provisions.
Commissioner Hagan is big on
small government and personal
responsibility until it comes to
baseball. The Rays are being wooed
by him to come to Tampa with the
wink and nod that we will help
build a stadium.
If government can't save several
thousand couples legal fees by mak-
ing a domestic partnership registry,
how does he justify bailing out the
Rays with government money?
Where is baseball's personal re-
sponsibility?
The last "no" vote on our list was
by Sandra Murman. She was also
for everyone hiring a lawyer. Maybe
that's because her husband is one.
What is odd about her vote is that
it doesn't reflect her district, which
is mostly urban, moderate and well-
populated with gays.
This group of four is going hard
right. They wouldn't even consider
a gun buy-back program and, now,
this.
The Bubba the Love Sponge
and MJ Kelli trail is over and
good riddance but what lingers
in our mind is that the. Tampa
Police Department wias used. A


paralegal at the firm representing
the Love Sponge was at Malio's buy-
ing drinks for .MJ's attorney, Mr.
C. Phillip Campbell. It seems she
called her boss after Campbell was
sufficiently soused, who then called
a friend at the TPD, one Sgt. Ray
Fernandez, who then put two cops
on a stakeout waiting for Campbell
to get in his car.
After the trap was in place, the
paralegal asked Campbell to move
her car.
The cops let him get into the car,
start it and then, after observing
him cut off a car, pulled him over,
and charged Campbell with a DUI.
It's intolerable that the TPD was
used as some. lawyer's personal
weapon. The two policemen waited
for a couple of hours. The officers
implied it was their responsibility
to stop a drunk driver. If that's the
case, why did they let him drive at
all? They didn't know once their
lights started flashing if this guy
would take off at high speed, creat-
ing a dangerous situation.
If public safety was the issue,
the cops would have told their in-
formant to not give Campbell the
keys to her car.
This is a big issue. Just think if
any of us could watch our enemies
at a party or bar and be able to set
them up for a DUI. This smacks
of the bad old days of Tampa. We
hope Police Chief Jane Castor puts
a stop to it.

My mom, Peggie Schmechel, is
in St. Joseph's Hospital undergo-
ing tests for respiratory problems.
Please remember her in your
prayers.
Richard Scionti was recently
appointed principal of Jennings
Middle School in Seffner. Richard
comes from a family of educators
with eight in or retired from the
profession. Even his wife, Dee, is a
teacher at Armwood High School.
He is the first in his family to
achieve the principal title. Richard
is also our cousin and we are very
proud of his achievement.

Retired General David Scott
owns a classy bar on 7th Avenue in
Ybor City named Bad Monkey. The
watering hole has a military theme,
with a vintage WWII fighter replica
crashing through the wall and six
105 mm howitzer shells crafted
into beer taps. The walls support
several large flat screen TVs tuned
into a variety of sporting events, but
one TV is dedicated to a purpose.
It flashes images of local soldiers,
some fairly current, others dating
way back.
General Scott has fallen in love
with Ybor City, Tampa and its his-
tory and wants to honor its past and
current military heroes.
If you'd like to share a photo of
your grandfather, father, husband
or son or their female gender
equivalent in uniform to become
part of the images honored at Bad
Monkey, email the photo to info@

County Judge Frances Maria
Perrone celebrated her robing
ceremony last Thursday, January
24. Following the swearing-in, her
supporters filled Carne Chophouse
in Ybor, which was closed that eve-
ning to regular patrons in order to
host her party. The crowd was so
thick for a couple of hours that you
could hardly move. We remember
being impressed by the size of the


crowd at her campaign kickoff party
in 2011. That was the beginning
of her path to the County Bench.
Judging by the crowd on Thursday,
it looks like she gathered even more
friends during the campaign and
election.

The worst bill, so far, of the 2013
session: House Bill 517 reads, "The
department...shall not issue an ini-
tial license to, or renew the license
of, any applicant or licensee who is
a citizen or resident of the United
States and who travels to the Re-
public of Cuba to obtain medical
training or a medical degree for
a medical residency program or
licensure..."
Cuba has been offering free tu-
ition to medical school for citizens of
the U.S. and other countries. Those
who graduate must return to their
country and promise a few years of
service in poor communities.
So far, 150 U.S. citizens have tak-
en Cuba up on its offer. These were
mostly low-income individuals who
couldn't get one of the limited spots
in an American medical school.
This bill would prevent ,these
people from practicing medicine in
Florida.
The three Cuban-American legis-
lators are using morality to justify
this ridiculous law. State Repre-
sentative Manny Diaz released
this statement: "U.S. students who
turn a blind eye to basic human and
civil rights abuses in Cuba do not
possess the moral clarity to serve
patients in Florida."
Diaz believes a young man or
woman who can't achieve their
dream in this country and goes to
Cuba to become a doctor with the
intention of returning to take care
of the poor lacks moral'clarity?
This isn't about the quality of
the medical training, because the
law only affects Americans. Cuban
nationals who receive the same
training in Cuba before immigrat-
ing here are exempt from this rule
and can be licensed to practice
medicine in Florida.
One sponsor, State Senator Rene
Garcia, is vice president of Dade
Medical College, which seems to
add to the conflict of interest.
This bill, if passed, would cer-
tainly be ruled unconstitutional,
but don't think that will hinder
its passage. Every year a bad bill
involving Cuba emerges and nor-
mally passes unanimously because
no one will stand up to the extrem-
ists and say, "Enough!"

Michael Weston seems to be
determined to find a place on the
Hillsborough County School Board.


Last year, he ran for countywide
District 7 and lost in August to Car-
ol Kurdell and Terry Kemple, who
went to a runoff where Kurdell pre-
vailed. Weston has now filed to run
for School Board District 2 in 2014,
which is now held by Candy Olson.
District 2 covers South Tampa
and the area of East Hillsborough
County west of U.S. Highway 301
and south of Causeway Boulevard.

Brian Ford has been named chief
operating officer of the Tampa Bay
Buccaneers, a post that hasn't been
filled since Eric Land left in 2007.
Ford was the vice president of
business administration.
Mr. Ford has been involved with
Raymond James Stadium since it
was under construction. In 1998, he
worked with Fine Host to oversee
the development of the stadium's
food service areas and stayed on
to run the operation. In 2002,
Aramark took over the contract and
Ford's employment. In 2006, Levy
Restaurants won the concession
and brought on Ford.
In 2007, Ford joined the Bucs.

Mayor Bob Buckhorn cut the
ribbon on the Alline Avenue Pump-
ing Station on Thursday, January
17. The project will alleviate storm
water flooding in the area. The neat
part of what would normally be a
boring public works project is its
design. The building which houses
the pumps looks like a single-family
home that would be typical of the
neighborhood. It has a covered front
porch with house-like windows, a
door and a chimney.
The project cost $4.8 million and,
according to City spokesperson Ali
Glisson, the cost of making the
structure look like a house was
about a half of one percent of that
cost, or $24,000.
The City plans, on designing a
project in North Tampa near Donut
Pond which will also incorporate
a house design to enhance rather
than detract from the neighbor-
hood.
A half of one percent is a small
price to pay to take an ugly cinder
block square building and give it
some style and curb appeal. We ap-
plaud the Buckhorn administration
and look forward to more creativity.
Due to the resignation of Bonnie
Plumtree, there is an opening for a
bar industry representative on the
Ybor City Development Corpora-
tion. Interested applicants should
call 274-7936.

JAS WE HEARD IT MANTEIGA I

















Gullibles' Travels?
The adage hasn't changed.
Some. pictures are, indeed,
worth at least a thousand
words. The photo on the front
page of last Friday's Tampa
Bay Times spoke volumes.
It showed three Twin Lakes
Elementary teachers stand-
ing behind Gov. Rick Scott as
he announced his proposal
to give every Florida public
school teacher a $2,500 pay
raise.
Normally, this would be
cause for high fives all around,
and they would be wearing
animated, thankful expres-
sions: $2,500 makes a dif-
ference in teacher take-home
pay. Instead, they looked like
they knew they were politi-
cal photo-op props. Like they
knew that this was the same
governor who had chopped
$1.3 billion from education in
his first year. Like they knew
he was the one who had used
teachers as political pifiatas
by railing against tenure and
leading lawmakers in adopt-
ing morale-killing merit-pay
measures. They wore vacant,
impassive expressions and
stared straight ahead. The
governor could have been
talking post-Newtown secu-
rity instead of a pay raise.
Let Superintendent MaryEl-
len Elia do all the smiling;
it comes with the job. They
looked like they were seeing
right through the stage craft.
Maybe this was, in effect,
the editorial the Times didn't
quite write. The one that still
seemed a little too eager, to
credit the uber unpopular
governorofor for something other
than early re-election postur-
ing, expedient makeover and
blatant bribery.
This is, after all, the same
governor who takes credit for
an unemployment rate now


down to 8 per cent, but no
blame for the 749,000 Florid-
ians still unemployed or the
15,300 jobs lost in December.
Or all the venture capital dol-
lars that still don't find their
way to Florida.- Or the gov-
ernmental inertia on the col-
lection of sales taxes owed on
Internet sales. Or an agenda
that now acknowledges the
need for voting reform after
having championed voter-
suppression efforts and then
arrogantly distancing himself
from the issue with national
media. He looked better in his
Medicare-fraud deposition.
You can't have it both
ways. Unless the mainstream
media lets you.
Lesson Unlearned
In perusing the paper Mon-
day morning, amid interna-
tional updates out of Mali,
Iran and Israel, -I happened
upon the news that author
and -Asian historian Stanley
Karnow, 87, had died. My eyes
were immediately redirected
to my bookcase. There it was
- -still nestled between Henry
Kissinger's Years of Upheaval
and Robert S. McNamara's .In
Retrospect: Karnow's Vietnam:
A History.
Published in 1983, it is still
the seminal work on the sub-
ject. It should still be required
reading for all those respon-
sible for American foreign pol-
icy, as well as all those weigh-
ing in on it. And, yes, it's still
required reading for all those
who don't get a generational
pass. Everyone needs to read
the minutes of previous meet-
ines. That's because Edmund
Burke is stills'right: "Those
who do not learn from history
are doomed to repeat it."
Too bad George W. Bush
passed on Karnow. You know
Colin Powell didn't. John Ker-
ry has read, as well as lived,


Vietnam: A History. You sense
that Barack Obama should
re-read it. You hope John Mc-
Cain finally gets around to it.
The parallels between Viet-
nam and the Middle East are
not precise, of course, but
they are illustrative. Vietnam
was a Cold Warrior extension
.of anti-communist paranoia
and containment. Iraq was a
neo-con extension of WMD il-
lusion and pre-emption. They
both cost American lives, trea-
sury, domestic concord and
geopolitical credibility. They
both were steeped in politics
and tragedy. They both were
wrong.
Registering Ignorance
It didn't shock anyone that
the Hillsborough County Com-
mission voted down (4-3) the
creation of a domestic partner
registry. But it did surprise
some observers that not one
of the Republicans not named
Mark Sharpe.would break so-
cial-conservative ranks to do
the right thing. It had to sur-
prise some that civil rights-
related "right thing" notwith-
standing a majority would
risk putting the county at a
competitive recruiting disad-
vantage. The business com-
munity and its workforce
- are increasingly progressive
in areas such as domestic-
partner benefits. A signal that
.diversity is. welcome, should
be part of any Hillsborough
County sales pitch. Of course
it should.
This is embarrassing and
counterproductive. But at
least the Deliverance vote was
pleased. Again.
Gentler Gasparilla
In 2010 there were more
than 400 Gasparilla Parade-
related arrests. Last Satur-
.day there were less than 70.
And it wasn't because the
police were looking the other

way. It was because the city
has been prioritizing specta-
tor safety, property protection
and rule of law. It's because
TPD backed up its high-pro-
file, zero-tolerance warnings
for underage drinking and ge-
neric mayhem. The word has
been out. Consequences fol-
low warnings.
It also helps that parade-
route dynamics now include a
concert venue at downtown's
Curtis Hixon Park and the op-
tion for some folks to pass -
given the size and scope of the
Children's Parade the previ-
ous week.
I live near ground zero, so
I saw for myself. This wasn't
the Gasparilla of just four
years ago. There was no ap-
parent need for a safe house.
But, yes, there were a few ATF
alley takedowns reported and
a couple of guys who nota-
bly mistook a confederate-
jasmined fence for one of the
1,200 port-a-lets.
I still say a portable cath-
eter concession would be a big
seller.
Out on a Limb
Just curious. Now that the
Channel 8 @ Seven newscast
has been running for a couple
months in that 7 p.m. slot,
does that mean that what we
see is what we will continue
to get? It still has the look of
a less-than-hip, shakedown
cruise and what's with the
leggy shots of anchor Jennifer
Leigh? That's not how Gayle
Sierens or Stacie Schaible
earned their studio stripes.'.
Foreign Fodder
South Florida's Ileana
Ros-Lehtinen, the Cold
Warrior-in-Chief of the U.S.
House, is at it again. The
former chairwoman of the
Foreign Relations Commit-
tee has made it known that
she doesn't think much of
President Obama's choices for
Secretary of State and Secre-
tary of Defense, John Kerry
and Chuck Hagel respective-
ly, when it-comes to Cuban-
American relations.
Said the Havana-born Re-
publican: "I think both are
bad for strengthening the
U.S.-Cuba embargo. They
would work for an appease-
ment policy. They would work
to normalize relations."
You can't make this up.
She might as well have in-
voked Neville Chamberlain.
It's beyond time-capsule com-
mentary. It's also an outrage
that still passes for another
day at the office within the
Beltway. For Congresswoman
Ros-Lehtineh, the best inter-
.ests of her country and state
are far less important than
her vendetta agenda.
How about this for future
concerts: no more indoor py-
rotechnics. Ever. No permits.
Even if you have windows
and a back door. None. From
Rhode Island to Santa Maria,
Brazil.
How bad is it in Egypt?
Imagine, post-Mubarak cha-
os, scary Muslim Brotherhood
scenarios and some of the
world's most violent soccer
fans.

Ironic Spokesman
Cloaked in tragedy, he has
come gift-wrapped to the NRA
and its Second Amendment
perverts. He's Mark Mattioli,
father of a slain student at
Newtown, who is speaking out
against liberals on the loose
using Newtown as an oppor-
tunity to further their agenda
of spreading fear on gun is-
sues.
."I believe in a-few simple
gun laws," stated Mattioli at a
recent Hartford, Conn., hear-
ing on gun legislation. "I think
we have more than enough
on the books. We should 'hold
people individually account-
able for their actions. The
problem is not gun laws. The
problem is a lack of civility."
Well be hearing from him
again.
Two points.
First, it's really, really hard
to argue with someone whose
opinions have survived the
crucible of the ultimate per-
sonal loss. He has more cred-
ibility than Wayne LaPierre
and David Keene.
Second, this isn't zero-sum
stuff. We should be able to
agree that people should be
"individually accountable"
and that "lack of civility" is
definitely a problem without
conceding that current gun
laws should suffice. Such
laws enabled Nancy Lanza to
legally horde a small armory
that unconscionably included
the assault weapon that killed
her and 26 others at Sandy
Creek Elementary.

The Big News...


Just when I thought I was
out ... they pull me back in!

My recent phone
conversation with my friend
Chris:
Me: What's up man? How
you doing?
Chris: Good. What have
you been up to?
Me: Oh you know ... the
norm. Been going to the gym,
have two new magazines I
write for, saw a blimp the
other day, Amy is pregnant,
ate some tacos ...
Chris: Wait, what? Say that
again!
Me: Ate some tacos. Went
to Taco Bus. Real good!
Chris: No, before that!
Me: Saw a blimp.
Chris: No! After that!
Me: Oh, Amy is pregnant.
Chris: Is Amy really
pregnant or are you just bored
and wanted to pull that lame
1980s comedy bit on me?
Me: First of all, it is not
lame. Secondly, yes, she is
pregnant.
Chris: Really?
Me; Really.
Chris: Really?!
Me: Really.
Chris: REALLY?!?!
Me: REALLY! .
Yeah, you all read that
right WE ARE HAVING A
FOURTH!
Whenever I have told
people the news over the past
few weeks, their questions
have gone in this order:
Question # 1: Is it yours?
Answer: Yes, wise guy, it is.
Question #2: Was it a
mistake?
Answer: Nope. We actually
planned it.
Question #3: Are you an
idiot?
Answer: Yes, for many
reasons, but not because of
the baby.
Question #4: Uh ... why did
you want a fourth?
My answers to that question
have varied, depending upon
the idiot who asked me the
question.
Answer #1: Because we
figured we screwed up so bad
with the first three that we
were bound to figure it out
with a fourth.
Answer #2: We wanted to
prove to the other three how
easy kids are for us to make
so they don't ever cry BS when
we threaten to give them away
and replace them with a new
one.
Answer #3: We want our
own reality show.
Answer #4: Amy is really
hot and I am really fertile, so
we figured that God wouldn't
have put us together if he
didn't want ,us to have a
billion kids.
Answer #5: My column
was getting boring and I need
a good sequel to my book,
"The. Overnight Family Man"
coming out in June.
Of course, none of those
answers are true. Well, #2
is partially true. The real
answer is because the older
two's biological father may
be back in the picture in two
years or so and because their
grandparents (Amy's ex-in-
laws) are looking to purchase
a home in Tampa so they can
spend more time here.
While I doubt that their
* biological father will get partial
custody right'away, in time he
may. When you add that with
them spending more time with
.their grandparents, it means
that Ben would have grown
up as a part time only child.


..AGAIN!
Half of his childhood would
have been spent without any
siblings. The thought of that is
heartbreaking. Not only would
he be alone, but he could have
felt like an outcast. He needed
a teammate, so we decided to
give him one. And, if I may
brag, did it on the first tryl
BOO-YA!
Do we know what we are
getting ourselves into? Yes
and no.
Yes, Amy and I know that
this means we will both always
be outnumbered, even when
we are together. Currently, at
least one of us can play man-
to-man when we are all out as
a family. Come August, that
will be a thing of the past.
Yes, I know this means I
will need to get a new car, the
type I have always dreaded a
mini-van or giant SUV.
I currently drive a Hyundai
Accent hatchback, perfect for
city driving but not good for a
large family. It cannot fit four
kids in any way.
Yes, we know this means
we may have to leave the city
for the tranquil and cookie
cutter suburbs where we can
afford a large enough home.
Yes, Amy knows it means
she will need to find someone
to manage her coffeehouse
in-house when she gets too
pregnant to work and after
she gives birth.
Yes, I know it means to
make up for the income lost
by hiring a manager at the
coffeehouse that I have to
take on more freelance work`
or even return to 9-5 life.
Yes, I know it means
that after spending five days
a week with Ben, I may
suddenly rarely see him if I do
get a 9-5 job.
Yes, we know it means
we have to break out the
bottles, hurry and get Ben
potty trained so we don't have
to sets of diapers to change
and pray Ben finally starts
sleeping through the night
(seriously, he still doesn't)
so we don't have two babies
waking us.
Yes, we know that because
we both, have the Cystic
Fibrosis gene (CF), there is a
risk involved. But we did A
LOT of research and learned
that because we have different
strains and because Amy's is
so rare, that if we do both pass
the CF gene, it is very unlikely
that it manifests in anything
deadly (knock on wood and
pray).
No, we do not know how
well we will cope with all of
this.
But we will cope, we will
love him or her (going to TRY
to wait to learn the sex at
birth) and will make it work.
Ben better love this sibling
and he better appreciate this!
I'm going to be a father
againl!! I'm going to have four
kids!!!! My god! I'm going to
have four kids. Please excuse

-When the Constitutional
Revision Commission (CRC)
meets again in 2018, this old
stateswoman wants to be on
it. Our Florida Constitution
mandates a review by an ap-
pointed CRC every twenty
years, and I want the world
to know that I'm up for that.
Here's why.
We used to have a seven-
member Cabinet elected by
the people, but we abolished
that in the last go-around, in
1998. We (I think stupidly)
gave up our right to elect the
offices of Education Commis-
sioner and Secretary of State,
allowing Jeb Bush and future
governors to appoint them.
We probably did do the
right thing in combining the
previously elected Comptrol-
ler and Insurance Commis-
sioner into the new office of
Chief Financial Officer (CFO)
- but we were dumb to allow
the Agriculture Commissioner
to continue to be an elected
Cabinet member, as very
few Floridians make a living
from farming; anymore. (Yes,
I know that the Agri Comn-
ish also is supposed to be in
charge of consumer protec-
tion. How's that working out
for you?)
So now, instead of seven,
we elect a four-member Cabi-
net: the governor, CFO, attor-
ney general, and the agricul-
ture commissioner. (Although
we elect the lieutenant gov-
ernor, it's with the gov, and
the lieuy does not sit on the
Cabinet. Nor do anything ex-
cept as authorized by the gov.
Note the obscurity of Lt. Gov.
Jennifer Carroll.)
Until last weekend, this de-
sire. to close out my political
life with the CRC was a vague
abstraction, but something
happened to renew my inter-
est in creating a government
that is more responsive.

I was on 1-4 around 40th


Street shortly before noon,
going to play bridge. In the
area where they are building
the link to the Crosstown, an
electronic sign advised driv-
ers that there was an accident
at "1-275 Exit 45B." I had no
idea where 45B might be: it
could be north on 275 go-
ing towards USF, or it could
be going south (really more
west) towards the Howard
Frankland. The traffic still
was moving pretty well, and I
didn't exit at Ybor. I should
have. It was the last oppor-
tunity.
So, DOT, why not have a
sign .that says something use-
ful? I'd put a standard mes-
sage in these cases: "Local
traffic exit ASAP." Then out-
of-towners could go on to Mal-
function Junction, while the
rest of us use the back roads
that we know. It would ben-
efit both groups.
But we don't elect the head
of the Department of Trans-
portation, and the agency al-
ways has been notoriously
deaf to citizens. Making my
suggestion to DOT would be a
waste of time.
And it gets worse.
I was in the center lane,
and the traffic controllers were
doing a good job of letting one
lane through at a time. Every-
one was staying in place and
waiting their turn, except for
the guy in the left lane next
to me. He nosed his humon-
gous black Ford pick-up its
wheels were higher than my
Buick sedan within inches
of my hood. It's true that I re-
sented his bullying ways, but
I nonetheless thought that I
was doing him a favor by try-
ing to,.point out.that his lane
was moving, unlike mine. He
threw a. stone at my window.
I couldn't 'actually see him
because his vehicle was so
much higher than mine, but
he then scooted over into his
passenger seat and threat-

ened me with gestures. He.
probably was in his twenties
and of mixed race, although
more white than black. I again
pointed to his lane, which
now was open for several car
lengths in front of him. He
didn't look, but threw another
stone.
Thank you, General Mo-
tors, for putting such strong
glass in Buick windows. I
relented and let him in, for
which my bridge friends later
were grateful: almost simulta-
neously, they exclaimed, "He
could have had a gun!" So he
sat there in front of me while
his former lane moved ahead.
This gave me plenty of time
to copy his license number:
Volusia County F92 4RG.
I suppose that he was mad
about his decision and knew
that I probably was writing his
license number to say noth-
ing about the fact that the left
lane he had vacated was going
forward.
In any case, he moved to
the right lane and threw a
third stone at my passen-
ger side. I guess he carries
around a sack of stones to
throw at older blonde women
with an Obama sticker.

So I decided that everyone's
life might be safer if someone
advised this manic to cool it.
I dialed 911 and got a record-
ing telling me in English and
then in Spanish that the call
would be monitored for qual-
ity assurance.
Please! Why in the world
are we doing that? If some-
one has a knife at your throat,
do you really want valuable
seconds taken up with a re-
cording? Who made that de-
cision? I want to know before
the next election.
When a live person came
on the line, she told me that
interstates are the jurisdic-
tion of the Florida Highway
Patrol and I should call that
number. I asked her to con-
nect me, and she responded
as though that thought never
had occurred to her. She did
it, but again, who's in charge?
Why should the endangered
caller have to suggest this
common-sense approach?

In Context
By Doris Weatherford


The FHP number was on
its fourth ring when the traf-
fic began to move again, and I
hung up. I was close enough
by then to see that the officials
directing things were not the
FHP, but instead Mayor Bob's
TPD employees. When I got to
a safe place, I pulled off and
reported the psychopath to' a
very nice black woman from
the Tampa Police Depart-
ment. She took the license
number of the stone-thrower
and calmed me down. Her
white male partner stopped
the traffic to let me in when I
was ready to move on.
And no, the rage-roader
did not need to be in the right
lane to go north on 275; I saw
him again downtown, when
southbound cars were divert-
ed to Ashley. It was clear that
his criminal behavior had not
benefited him much. He was
stopped in the lane that forc-
es a right turn on Kennedy,
while I was in the center lane.
Believe me, I stayed there. I
crossed the river at Brorein,
got on. Cleveland, and kept
away from him.

So why did .1 begin this by.
talking about the Florida Con-
stitution?
Because I think we need a
healthy debate about which.
offices We elect. Maybe we
would get a safer and better
transportation system in-
cluding perhaps light rail if
we elected that office and had
candidates with some sense of-
innovation. (Frank Sanchez
comes to mind, with his expe-
rience at the federal level.)
We almost certainly should
be electing an environmental
commissioner, not an agri-
cultural commissioner. This
isn't because I'm anti-ag -

best environmentalists I know
- but with an ecosystem as
fragile as ours, we should de-
bate policy and elect a person
whom we can hold account-
able.
This is even more true at
the county level. Changing
those offices also would re-
quire action from the state
CRC, as the Constitution cur-
rently mandates the consti-
tutional officers for counties,
but I don't believe there even
was any discussion of change
when the CRC last met in
1998.
Instead, each county con-
tinues to elect its property ap-
praiser and its tax collector.
These not only are arguably
duplicative offices, but more
important, they really should
be professional positions that
requite proven credentials.
They should be under Boards
of County Commissioners,
who set tax rates and deter-
mine county budgets.
The same, or something
similar, also may be true of
the elected position of Clerk of
the Circuit Court.
Let's at least have a de-
bate. Which offices are re-
ally policy making and which
are administrative holdovers
from the 19th century, when,
all government jobs were cdn-;
sidered patronage positions?
Back then, people voted for
the property appraiser who
promised them the lowest as-
sessment and the tax collec-
tor who was most inclined to
be personally helpful. That's
how politics was done before
women voted.
And before misogynist men
threw stones at women old
enough to be their grand-
mothers.

Oh


I never knew my grandpar-
ents very well. Save for my
father's mother, I didn't know
any of them at all.
My mother's mother died
when my mother was very
young and her father, while
I knew him briefly as a child,
lived far from us for most of
my life and was not any kind
of influence in my life.
My father's father died
when I was a child, so I don't
remember much about him
other than him being on
crutches at one point and him
giving me horsey-rides on his
knee. My father's mother, who
I got to have a relationship
with as a younger lad, into my
early 20s, was the only.grand-
parent I had that was moder-
ately involved in the lives of
my siblings and I.
I've written about this be-
fore, but for those who don't
follow me religiously, my fa-
ther's mother came to the US
after World War II and always
spoke in a strange-accent to
me. This was because she
spoke seven languages. She
was very different than other
grandmothers and wasn't the
cuddly type. She came off
stern, but it was her way and
she had a lot of love in her
heart for her family.
Sadly, she passed away


w


r oe Br


about 13 years ago and I
didn't get to reconnect with
her as an adult. I lived in
Florida when'she passed and
wasn't mature enough to real-
ize that family members don't
live forever.
My mother's father also
died a few years back, but he
had Alzheimer's and, when I
saw him for the first time in
a few decades, he was just
a shell of himself, but I was
happy to see him before he
passed on.
I bring this to light because
at La Gaceta, I have worked
alongside Patrick Manteiga's
mother, Peggie Schmechel
for my duration here. She's
80 years old and is as close
to a grandparent as I could
have hoped for. Beyond that,
she's been a good friend. I've
also written about this, but I
wanted to readdress it as Peg-
gie has had a few health prob-
lems and hasn't been able to
get back to her old self since
around Christmas.
As it goes today, her health
seems to be improving, so
hopefully we'll have her back
in the office soon, advising
us against bad decisions and
providing all those, "I told you
sos" that.we've been missing,
and we have been missing
them.,


Without Peggie here, I
haven't had that daily con-
versation with her that I nor-
mally have each morning, but
I haven't gone to visit except
at Christmas, as she's been
bouncing around between the
hospital and home. But that's
just an excuse and I could
make the time, which I will.
Her absence has reminded
me that it is far too sparsely
that many of us connect with
family and loved ones when
they are out of sight or out of
mind.
I don't have that issue with
Peggie, as I see her everyday,
but I do regret not having the
relationship with my grand-
parents that many people
enjoy. Mostly it's not my do-
ing, but a phone call here and
there could have gone a long
way and Ill never get those
years back.
What I'm saying to you all
is, call your mother, call your
grandfather, call your distant
cousins. Sometimes we can
let an argument, a difference
of opinion or something as
simple as time get in the way
of reconnecting, with those
who were once close to us.
These people want to hear
from you and someone has to
get the ball rolling before it's
too late. Why not you?.

on January 23, 2013. 1/25-2/1/13 2T


ARIES (March 21 to April
19) It could be risky to push
for a project you believe in
but others are wary of. Never
mind. If you trust your facts,
follow your courageous Aries
heart and go with it.
TAURUS (April 20 to May 20)
Your enthusiasm sparks re-
newed interest in a workplace
project that once seemed
headed for deletion. Support
from supervisors helps you
make all necessary changes.
GEMINI (May 21 to June 20)
A colleague might be a bit too
contrary when your ideas are
being discussed in the work-
place. A demand for an expla-
nation could produce some
surprises all around.
CANCER (June 21 to July
22) Try to avoid distractions
at a time when maintaining
stability in a fluid situation
is essential. There'll be time
enough later for the Moon
Child to enjoy some well-
earned fun and games.
LEO (July 23 to August 22)
Stop wasting energy licking
your wounded pride. Instead,
put the lessons you learned
from that upsetting experi-
ence to good use in an up-
coming opportunity.
VIRGO (August 23 to Sep-
tember 22) You love being
busy. But try not to make
more work for yourself than
you need to. Get help so that
you don't wind up tackling
tasks that are better left to
others.
LIBRA (September 23 to Oc-
tober 22) Your usually bal-
anced way of assessing situ-


nations could be compromised
by some so-called new facts.
Check them out before mak-
ing any shift in judgment.
SCORPIO (October 23 to
November 21) You might feel
angry over an unexpected
shift in attitude by someone
you trusted. But this could
soon turn in your favor as
more surprising facts come
out.
SAGITTARIUS (November
22 to December 21) Love
rules everywhere for all amo-
rous Archers, single or at-
tached. It's also a good time to
restore friendships that might
have frayed over the years.
CAPRICORN (December 22
to January 19) It's not al-
ways easy for the proud" Goat
to forgive past slights. But
clearing the air could help
establish a better climate
for that important upcoming
venture.
AQUARIUS (January 20 to
February 18) Good news:
Your skillful handling of a re-
cent matter has won admira-
tion from someone who could
be influential in any upcom-
ing decisions involving you.
PISCES (February 19 to
March 20) You continue to
welcome new friends into
the widening circle of people
whom you hold dear. One of
those newcomers soon might
have something special to tell
you.
BORN THIS WEEK: You love
nature and inspire others to
follow your example of con-
*cern for the planet's well-be-
ing.
