My regular As We Heard It.col-
umn is abbreviated this week as I
am traveling in China.
A few months ago, I heard of a
trip for two to China from Tampa
for $3,000 through China Spree
tour company. It sounded too good
to pass up, as it included round-trip
flight from Tampa to New York, to
Beijing, to Shanghai, ground trans-'
portation in China, hotels, most
meals and a guide for nine days.
With the price being that low, I
wasn't sure if the meals would be at
the Chinese KFC and the room at
the Beijing Motel 6, but to my pleas-


ant surprise, so far everything has
been great. The hotels are four- and
five-star, the food is excellent and
the trip has been wonderful.
We spent the first four days in
Beijing and have just arrived in
Shanghai. Beijing is huge, mile
after mile of tall buildings and
highways.
No longer are the streets filled
with bicycles; we have seen very
few. New BMWs, Volkswagens
and buses now choke the roads.
Fifty Tampas would fit in Beijing.
Its size, culture and history make
it a great adventure with the only

downfall for the traveler being the
terrible air quality.
As a Florida boy, I got a bonus in
my travels. We experienced a heavy
snow while touring the Forbidden
City. It was a unique experience.
I have shared some photos of the
trip on page 12. Next week, As We


Heard It will return to its normal

La debacle para el softball de USF
El equipo de softball femenino de USF perdi6 los cinco par-
tidos que jug6 el fin de semana en el Clisico Leadoff de la
NFCA en Clearwater. Con las derrotas ante Southern Illinois
(4-5), Louisiana-Lafayette (0-3), James Madison (0-1), UC-
Davis (0-1) e Illinois State (0-7), USF ha perdido siete de sus
iltimos ocho partidos y cay6 a un record de 6-8 esta tempo-
rada. La _iltima vez que las chicas de los Bulls fueron blan-
queadas en cuatro partidos consecutivos fue en la temporada
2002. Ofensivamente el equipo ha dejado much que desear.

Por Sebastian Varqie ne

cSe incrementa la turbulencia global?


Entre la dimisi6n del Papa
Benedicto XVI y otros acon-
tecimientos globales, la mo-
narquia britanica es blanco
de un ataque severe con de-
nuncias de incesto, sacrifi-
cios humans y sustituciones
de monarcas genuinos en su
cuna, (estilo pdjaro cuco) con
intrusos no vinculados gen6ti-
camente. No esta claro ai.n si
estas acusaciones son ciertas o
son simplemente parte de una
campafia destinada a forzar la
dimisi6n de la reina Elizabeth
junto con los principles Charles
y William. Cosa que veo dificil.
Hay muchos events apa-
rentemente sin relaci6n, en
particular caidas de meteorites
y brotes de enfermedades, que
de hecho pueden ser signs de
las luchas intemas. Durante la
iltima semana se inform so-
bre meteorites (rocas que real-
mente aterrizan) y meteoros
(los que explotan en el cielo)
como sucedi6 en Rusia. Tal vez
sin relaci6n, una enfermedad
tipo SARS y/o una gripe aviar
fueron notificadas en el Reino
Unido, M6xico y Alemania la
semana pasada. Sin dejar de
mencionar que una importan-
-te represa estall6 en China.
eUhh?
En medio de todo esto, Ru-
sia ha enviado bombarderos
nucleares para amenazar ba-
ses estadounidenses, mientras
que Corea del Norte hace sus
pruebas nucleares, revelando
al mundo que tiene capacidad
de lanzar missiles nucleares in-
tercontinentales. eSe trata de
un mensaje para los japoneses,
chinos, rusos o americanos?
La monarquia britanica,
los illuminatis gn6sticos y las
sociedades secrets llevaron a
Obama a Florida durante el fin
de semana para alguna misi6n
secret y al parecer estaba alli
just a tiempo para una luvia
de meteorites. 6Es esto una co-
incidencia? Recordemos que la
caida del "meteorito" ruso vino
despues de que el Secretario
de estado de Estados Unidos
John Kerry, fuese ignorado re-
petidamente por el Ministro de
Asuntos Exteriores de Rusia.
Tambien sucedi6 despu6s
que dos bombarderos nuclea-
res rusos entraron en el es-
pacio a6reo de Estados Uni-
dos cerca de la base military


de Guam en el Pacifico. Todo
podria ser una coincidencia
pero nuevamente pudiesen
ser los chicos grandes agitan-
do sus juguetes el uno al otro.
Los illuminati gn6sticos dicen
que son descendientes de los
supervivientes de la Atlantida
y Cartago y creen que la enti-
dad maligna responsible de la
destrucci6n reside en Roma.
En su opinion, la destrucci6n
de Roma se justificaria por la
actuaci6n hist6rica de Roma
contra otras grandes ciudades
antiguas y civilizaciones.


"El mundo no esta
amenazado por las
malas personas, sino por
aquellos que permiten la
maldad". Albert Einstein

S61o podemos esperar que si
el pr6ximo Papa se llama "Pe-
dro, el romano", simplemehte
sera el l1timo papa romano
antes de que la Iglesia Cat6-
lica romana se fusione con la
cristiana ortodoxa y las iglesias
protestantes y deje de ser "Ro-
mana".
Sin embargo, la reina como
un simbolo puede no ser lo mis-
mo que la reina como ser hu-
mano. Un primo hermano de
la Reina cont6 hace un tiempo
sobre sacrificios humans pre-
sididos por la reina en el casti-
11o de Balmoral. Tambi6n hay
un mont6n de pruebas que la
princess Diana muri6 para
proteger el honor de la familiar
real britanica porque ella esta-
ba embarazada del hijo de su
novio musulmnn Dodi Fayed.
Y nuevamente hubo un descu-
brimiento reciente confirmado
del cuerpo de un nombre de
Europa occidental (sospechoso
de estar vinculado al comercio
de heroina) en el castillo de
Sandhingham.
Lo que la reina tiene que ha-
cer, si ella ha de sobrevivir al
ataque continue, es limpiar de
caddveres su armario y pedir el
perd6n de Dios y de.su pueblo.


En Europa se dice "que tanto
la reina como el papa eran tes-
taferros simb6licos de antiguas
organizaciones burocraticas
que eran hostiles hacia ellos
y perseguian la gran riqueza
controlada por la monarquia
britanica y el papado".
La CIA replica que la reina
ha sido repetidamente atra-
pada tratando de poner sus
manos sobre los activos que
pertenecen a las cuentas de
garantias globales (colateral
accounts) y no a ella. Recien-
temente la India ha cancelado
un trato por la cantidad de 750
millones de d61lares de helic6p-
teros anglo-italianos por de-
nuncias de soborno. Tambien
estd paralizada una venta de
aviones militares franceses a
la India. Luego estan los mis-
teriosos problems de bacteria
que han dejado parado prnc-
ticamente todas las ventas de
aviones Boeing desde princi-
pios de este afio.
Por otra parte, esta la pro-
hibici6n rusa sobre todas las
importaciones de came pro-
venientes de Estados Unidos.
eVemos aqui un patr6n? Ac-
tualmente hay igualmente
unos destapes de escandalos
que estin teniendo lugar en
Francia en relaci6n con el robo
francs del oro de Tinez, Li-
bia y Mali. Los disturbios en
Europa, mientras tanto, se ha
extendido al Este. La semana
pasada hubo disturbios en
Bulgaria tras una reciente su-
bida drastica en los precious de
la energia, segOin una fuente
de alli. HabrA mas aumentos
de precious, seguidos por dis-
turbios en Europa y Estados
Unidos. Por la crisis financiera
mundial, en Grecia la gente se
estd suicidando y, en Espafia,
se esta inmolando.
En Asia, mientras tanto,
ahora que estan terminando
las vacaciones del nuevo afio
Lunar Chino, el nuevo regi-
men de Xi Jinping asumird
formalmente las riendas del
gobierno. Hubo muchas ne-
gociaciones secrets durante
la ultima parte de febrero y,
a continuaci6n, el nuevo go-
bierno se espera que salga con
una agresiva agenda national
e intemacional. Ya veremos los
desarrollos.
Si los chinos juegan sus
cartas correctamente y se
coordinan con el grupo BRICS
de 180 naciones, deberian po-
der forzar el final del sistema
de gbbierno international de
posguerra dominado por las
elites globales. Si juegan mal
sus cartas, por ejemplo, por
caer en la trampa por el cebo
de las islas Diaoyu/Senkaku,
podrian perder todo el valioso
poder que han incrementado
hasta ahora.

Solicitudes de excenci6n


provisional para
En cuesti6n de dias, el 4
de marzo de 2013, los fa-
miliares inmediatos de ciu-
dadanos estadounidenses que
actualmente resident en Esta-
dos Unidos, podran comenzar
sus solicitudes para exenciones
provisionales de presencia
indocumentada sin tener que
salir a sus respectivas em-
bajadas o consulados con el
objetivo de procesar su visa de
inmigrante y conseguir una tar-
jeta de residencia permanent.

LOS BENEFICIARIES:
C6nyuges e hijos de
ciudadanos de EE.UU. que:
1. Est6n buscando la resi-
dencia por medio de una
visa de inmigrante.
2. Sean encontrados. in-
admisibles por su presencia
illegal superior a los 180
dias en EE.UU.
3. Cumplan con el criterio
de dificultades extremes.
Requisitos para calificar
Calificaran como familiares
inmediatos aquellos solici-
tantes que tengan 17 afios de
edad o mas que an sean hijos
menores de edad o esposos
o esposas de ciudadanos es-
tadounidenses. Los padres de
ciudadanos adults que tengan
21. afios de edad o mas califi-
caran de igual manera.
Familiares inmediatos
serdn favorecidos por esta
generosa ley si cumplen
ademds con various requisitos:
ser inadmisible para residencia
solamente por raz6n de la bar-
rera de 3 a 10 afios que penali-
za la presencia indocumentada;
tener una petici6n familiar ya
aprobada y pendiente ante el
Departamentb de Estado; asi
como contar con recibo de
pago de cuota requerida para
el procesamiento de visa de
inmigrante por parte del Centro
Nacional de Visas (NVC).
Medidas de precauci6n
A pesar de la buena noticia,
hay que tener precauci6n. Si a
la hora de su entrevista se de-
termina que usted no es elegi-
ble para una visa de inmigrante
por otros motives que no sean
la presencia indocumentada, la
aprobaci6n de la exenci6n pro-
visional serd revocada. Otros.
motives pueden ser anteceden-


indocumentados


tes penales, fraudes, asistencia
a otras personas para entrada
illegal al pais, entire otros. Antes
de proceder, no s61o determine
su elegibilidad sino tambien
identifique las formas de pro-
bar que un familiar inmediato
sufriria de forma extrema si a
usted le fuese negada la resi-
dencia.
En general, aquellos famili-
ares inmediatos a los que NVC
envi6 cartas programando
entrevista consular con fe-
cha del 3 de enero de 2013 o
antes no se beneficiaran. La
fecha relevant no es cuando
entrevista fue programada,
sino, la fecha de emisi6n- de la
carta como tal.
Informaci6n de solicitud
El formulario de la solicitud
tendrd que ser enviado utili-
zando un nuevo formulario
creado para ese prop6sito: el
I-601A (Solicitud de Exen-
ci6n de Presencia Ilegal Provi-
sional). Antes de proceder con
el procedimiento de la exen-
ci6n provisional de presencia
indocumentada, cerci6rese de
pagar su cuota de procesa-
miento de visa de inmigrante y
de notificar al Centro Nacional
de Visas (NVC); o a la emba-
jada o al consulado donde
normalmente corresponderia
su cita. Si no lo hace, corre
el riesgo de que su solicitud
sea simplemente tratada como
una exenci6n regular y que su
entrevista sea programada en
el extranjero.
El Departamento de Estado
ha publicado una direcci6n
de correo electr6nico para
comunicarse con el NVC con
el objetivo de alertar al NVC
de la intenci6n de solicitar la
exenci6n. Esa direcci6n es
NVCi601 a@state.gov. Con
la notificaci6n, NVC esperard
a que los servicios de inmi-
graci6n procesen su formulario
I- 601A antes de programar su
entrevista adecuadamente. El
period estimado para el pro-
ceso complete es de seis meses.
Se recomienda cuidarse de
los notarios u otros individuos
que no estdn autorizados para
practicar el derecho de inmi-
graci6n.
Casos de deportaci6n
Los casos mas complicados
son aquellos que estuvieron en
process de deportaci6n pero
que fueron cerrados de forma
administrative por la Corte
de Inmigraci6n. Sin embargo,
ellos pueden tener remedio
bajo la nueva ley. Recuerden
que para aquellos que queden
excluidos de esta ley, el antiguo
procesamiento consular puede
ser utilizado, si su abogado
determine que califica.
Nota editorial: Este articulo
es solo para informaci6n general
y no un consejo particularizado
a las circunstancias especificas
de su caso. Es-su derecho y
responsabilidad asesorarse
con un abogado o especialista
autorizado antes de proceder.

campos magn6ticos colocados
alrededor de las porterias para
determinar si el bal6n cruz6 o
no la linea cuando la certeza
del gol sea debatible. Hasta

La protest del Tibet


El Tibet, esa tierra lejana y
ex6tica, desde hace d6cadas
l1eva una lucha pacifica para
emanciparse de las fuerzas de
ocupaci6n china. Desde los
afios 50, cuando su territorio
fue invadido por los comunistas
chinos, han llevado una cam-
pafia de persecuci6n political y
de represi6n, donde mds de 1
mill6n de tibetanos han perdido
sus vidas.
La religion del Tibet es el
budismo, por lo tanto su pro-
testa es no violent, aunque en
marzo del 2008 la capital del
Tibet, Lhasa, estuvo envuelta
en unos violentos disturbios que
oficialmente dejaron una vein-
tena de muertos. La mayoria


sus intentos para detener las
inmolaciones, castigando a
los familiares de los suicides
quienes acusan de complicidad
por considererse actos terror-
istas, ofreciendo recompensas
hasta de 50,000 yuanes para
quien de informaci6n que evite
las inmolaciones, y obligando
a los tibetanos a firmar unas
declaraciones escritas, en las
que prometen no se quemaran
por el Dalai Lama.
Nota editorial: el suicidio
estr mal visto por el bud-
ismo tibetano, pero hay una
tradici6n de auto sacrificio en
"beneficio de los demas", ex-
plicaron grupos de la sociedad
civil. No obstante, la adminis-

de 6stos eran chinos de la etnia
Han, que habian colonizado esa
region del Himalaya. Desde
el 2009 se ha estado llevando
una protest en esa naci6n
donde mis de un centenar de
tibetanos se han inmolado para
protester contra el regimen de
Pekin, reclamar la independen-
cia del Tibet y pedir el regreso
del exiliado Dalai Lama. Entre
los que se han inmolado hay-:
muchos monjes budistas y tam-
bi6n campesinos y estudiantes.
Recientemente, Rinchen v
Sonam Dhargye, dos adoles-
centes de 17 y ,18 afos respec-
tivamente,,fueron los timos en
inmolarse. Ambos celebraban el
"Losar" (Afio Nuevo tibetano) con
sus families, en el conridado de
Aba, en la provincia de Sichuan,
cuando decidieron rociarse con
gasoline y prenderse fuego.
Estas personas se convierten en
antorchas humans y mientras
arden cantan proclamas a favor
d e la independencia y del Dalai
Lama, gritando de dolor hasta
que las 11amas codnsimien sus,
cuerpos. Desde el exilio en la
India, el Centro Tibetano para
los Derechos Humanos, inform
que ambos murieron en el acto.
Las personas que se sacri-
fican de esa forma culpan a la
brutal represi6n china, basada
en detenciones ilegales y pali-
zas, y alegan que no tienen otra
forma de manifestarse contra el
regimen. De esa forma se llama
la atenci6n de la comunidad in-
ternacional parapresionar a las
autoridades chinas a que cese la
represi6n en el Tibet. Aunque
la protest sigue los principios

Piscis es un signo muta-
ble, femenino y centripeto.
Simboliza la disoluci6n, el
oceano. Fuente inagotable de
emociones y sentimientos
contradictorios. Se entrega
a vivir mediante su intuici6n
e imaginaci6n, obteniendo
a veces resultados sorpren-
dentes. Generalmente se le
reconoce por su compasi6n y
amabilidad. Busca uni6n con
el mundo spiritual y suele
elegir profesiones en las que
pueda volcar su espiritu de
sacrificio y talent para cui-
dar de los demis. Le atrae la
belleza y el exotismo.

ARIES: del 21 de marzo al
20 de abril
Los asuntos de trabajo con-
tintian bien. No rechaces la
oferta que te estan haciendo. Es
el moment para decir que si.
Un regalitoiinesperado para tu
pareja va a.reencender la llama
del amor. No te detengas. El
cansancio que te agobia no tiene
otra manera de combatirlo que
no sea con descanso. Tienes que
dormir bien. No levantarte mis
tarde. Todo tipo de conversaci6n
pendiente debes apurarla y tra-
tar los asuntos de frente.
TAURO: del 21 de abril al
20 de mayo
Estas en tu mejor moment.
Aparecen numerosas invita-
ciones, incluso para un viaje
largo. Acepta, no lo dejes para
despu6s, las oportunidades no
se pueden dejar pasar. Eljuego
es una actividad peligrosa, pues
puede convertirse en un vicio,
pero en estos mementos podria
sorprenderte un golpe de suerte.
Visitards un lugar ensofiador y
sentiras que has estado alli an-
teriormente. Tendrds enormes
deseos de rezar. No te detengas
yhazlo por los tuyos.
GEMINIS: del 21 de mayo
al 20 de junior
Eres generoso por natura-
leza, bondadoso y dispuesto a
brindar ayuda a todo el que la
necesite'. Amas apasiornada-
mente, pero debestenerc uidado
en no mostrar tu ansiedad ante
la presencia del ser querido. Tu
marcado sentido de la fidelidad
mantiene firme la column de
tu uni6n sentimental. Si tu pa-
reja es Leo, trata de equilibrar
las' fuerzas. El amor no es una
confrontaci6n permanent por
el dominion de una a otra perso-
na. Hacer pareja es ir a la par.
CANCER: del 21 de junior
al 22 de julio
Todo proyecto debe cumplir-
se por etapas. Ir demasiado de
prisa no garantiza llegar a la
meta adecuadamente. Baja el
ritmo y toma los descansos ne-
cesarios para proseguir la mar-
cha. No te conviene agotar las
fuerzas. Nuevas perspectives
se abren en el campo del amor.


Del 1 de marzo al 8 de marzo de 2013
Cuidado con los impacts de
primera vista. Mucha cautela.
Estas en el moment del gran
encuentro, pero la realidad es
diferente a los espejismos.
LEO: del 23 de julio al 23
de agosto
Es muy positive la meticu-
losidad con que ejecutas tu
trabajo. Pero no te conviene
extremar esta actitud. Si~es
necesario cambia tu actividad
professional. No le temas a eso.
Manejas perfectamente tu dine-
roy tus finanzas pero no puedes
caer en la tacafieria. No temas
al riesgo. Escribele o llama a
esa persona eni la que piensas
diariamente. Se sentira feliz de
saber que la estas recordando
con agrado. Nada mejor que la
comunicaci6n.

VIRGO: del 24 de agosto al
S23 de septiembre
Los Virgos puros con todas
las caracteristicas propias del
signo son inteligentes, anali-
ticos, reflexivos, detallistas,
pulcros y muy educados. Su
simpatia es innata. Estards
muy valorado en tu actividad
professional. La suerte, como
siempre, te sonrie. Evita el exce-
so de perfeccionismo y no seas
tan severe en la autocritica. No
exageres con los quebrantos de
salud. Tus males son pasajeros
y no tan graves como tui quieres
career.
LIBRA: del 24 de
septiembre al 23 de octubre
De acuerdo con tu caracte-
ristica sentimental y romantic
en el plano amoroso, estas bus-
cando armonizar para lograr
un amor perfect y equilibrado,
pero tambien debes proponer
exigencias y no aparecer como
en una entrega total y sin con-
diciones. Como aut6ntico ena-
morado del amor utilizas bien
tus habilidades de seducci6n.
Te gusta buscar y elegir a tu
pareja, y eres muy exigente en
todos los aspects. Los astros te
van a complacer en este period.
ESCORPIO: del 24 de
octubre al 22 de noviembre
Los nacidos bajo el signo de
Escorpio son apasionados en
el amor, de fuertes sentimien-
tos, pero muy celosos. Eres
muy posesivo y muy exigente
en tus gustos y preferencias.


Tu pasi6n y sensualidad te
pueden conducir hacia accio-
nes destructivas. Evita caer en
estados depresivos o ir hacia el
otro extremo y llegar a compor-
tamientos col6ricos. Aprovecha
estos dias para hacer el negocio
que has ido dejando para mas
tarde.
SAGITARIO: del 24 de no-
viembre al 23 de diciembre
Te toca hacer una limpieza
profunda de tu casa. Tambien
debes dedicarle un buen tiempo
a tu cuerpo. Un baflo especial,
lento y cargado de esencias
magicas es muy convenient.
Rod6ate de objetos bellos, de
plants, flores y adornos so-
brios. Enciende unas cuantas
velas aromaticas y vistete de
manera ex6tica. Las damas de
este signo deben, en este perio-
do, amarse a si mismas, verse
al espejo y sentirse diosas. Los
\varones deben tratar de lucir
muy elegantes.
CAPRICORNIO: del 24 de
diciembre al 20 de enero
La fuerza de Capricornio se
ve reafirmada en estos tiempos.
Eres persona de pensamiento
profundo y eso define en ti una
fuerte y clara linea intellectual.
No te dejes dominarpor tu espi-
ritu conservador y liberaliza un
poco tu pensamiento. Debes ser
'mns tolerate y no dejarte llevar
pdr tus impulses autoritarios.
Eres excelente amante, el amor
y el sexo tienen una gran im-
portancia en tu vida y en estos
dias los disfrutards a plenitud.
ACUARIO: del 21 de enero
al 19 de febrero
Muchas tensions laborales
te tienen bloqueado. Apdrtate
un poco y permit que los de-
mas resuelvan sin tu presencia.
No te muestres prepotente y
sabelotodo. El dialogo es la me-
jor estrategia. Tienes muchos
compromises econ6micos pero
no los puedes resolver todos al
mismo tiempo. Haz una lista de
prioridades. Distrdete y brin-
dale un espacio a las personas
que te quieren, especialmente a
quien has entregado tu coraz6n.
PISCIS: del 20 de febrero al
20 de marzo
Los nuevos proyectos relacio-
nados con el trabajo te manten-
dran sumergido en un mar de
preocupaciones. Lo important
es mantener la calma. Al final
de tanto esfuerzo la recompensa
ser& proporcional. Pon atenci6n
a tus problems de salud, espe-
cialmente los relacionados con
las vias digestivas. Una alimen-
taci6n balanceada contribuird a
mantenerte en forma y mejorard
tus estados de animo.

LA COCINA: UNA ORQUESTA
CULINARIA
Como parte de la tramoya
de todo restaurant, la cocina
tiene un sin fin de encantos. Al
entrar, esta inmaculada, y poco
a poco, como el artist que se
prepare para su presentaci6n,
van. incorporandose cada uno
de los cocineros. Los observe.
Se ven series, concentrados,
trabajando al unisono para
alcanzar el objetivo comfm de
su obra diaria: deleitar a sus


clients con sus manjares. En
el interin, Antonio, sujeta la
batuta de sus conocimientos y
orquesta los mil detalles que se
van desarrollando en crescendo
a lo largo del dia. El equipo de
la cocina puede preparar aproxi-
madamente 18 platos al mismo
tiempo y labor arduamente de
2 de la tarde a 2 de la madru-
gada.
Durante mi visit aprendi so-
bre las cuatro facetas tradicio-
nales de una cocina: la limpieza
general, el tiempo de prepara-
ci6n para alistar los ingredien-
tes a utilizarse, el servicio per
se, y finalmente, la recogida y
limpieza de las lines de final
de dia, asi-como la preparaci6n
de los elements mds esencia-
les para el ciclo de producci6n
del dia siguiente. Un process
fascinante.
Mientras degustaba algunos
de los platos del menfi (una
zarzuela, un fresco ceviche de
la casa, una paella negra y un
Mahi-Mahi al papel... id-e-l-i-
c-i-o-s-o!), me preguntaba qu6
cantidad de comida se utiliza en
un restaurant como este. "Al
afio gastamos $4 millones en la
compra de alimentos, es decir,
unos $2,000 diario en comida
en cada uno de los 6 restauran-
tes", concluy6 Antonio.


En esta economic ofrecemos

excdente service que coincide con lo asequible.


Es mis important que nunca hacer elecciones
ineligeutes. Ademas, tenemos el unico
crematorio en el local de Tampa.

del vulcano.
A quasi 3000 m di altitu-
dine, sul versante del cratere
central, nella zona Torre del
Filosofo il cui rifugio e stato
distrutto dalla lava nel 1971,
appaiono quattro crater:
quello di sud-est, nato nel
1978, 1'immenso cratere cen-
trale, quello di nord-est, la
cima pi-u alta, la cui attivita
non si e pifl manifestata dopo
il 1971, e la Bocca Nuova, ulti-
mamente la piud attiva.
Per informazioni dettagliate
sull'attivita dell'Etna consul-
tare il capitol dedicate al Vul-
canismo Molti sono gli itinerari
possibili all'interno del parco,
sia percorsi brevi che escursio-
rii piu lunghe, piu complesse
tra cui La Grande Traversata
Etnea -GTE- (5 giomi di trek-,
king con tappe dai 12 ai 15
kin), sentieri natural e, per i
piuf pigri, la circumetnea sia
in auto (si veda oltre) che in
treno.
Quest'ultima utilizza il trat-
to ferroviario che "circumnavi-
gando" l'Etna, parte da Catania
ed arriva a Riposto. Da qui. per
rientrare a Catania e possible
prendere un autobus. A causa
delle eruzioni dell'Etna, le at-
trezzature turistiche (strade,
piste, funivie, rifugi) non han-
no carattere definitive e posso-
no essere rimosse o soppresse
a second della gravitA dei
danni arrecati dall'eruzione
pial recent. Le escursioni sul
vulcano possono essere annul-
late in caso di maltempo (pi-
oggia, nebbia). E' utile tenere
present che, soprattutto per
il versante nord-est, il period
in cui 1'escursione & possible
varia ogni anni a second
delle nevicate. All'inizio della
stagione (normalmente a mag-"
gio) vengono effettuate gite piu
brevi che raggiungono quote
meno elevate, solo quando le
strade sono state liberate dalla


neve e, nel tratto pitL alto, e
passata la ruspa, si raggiunge
quota 3000. Il period miglio-
re per effettuare l'escursione
quindi & normalmente la piena
estate. II moment migliore
sono le prime ore del mattino.
Sia per le escursioni a quota
piui bassa che per quelle che
invece raggiungono le altitu-
dini pilL elevate (si veda oltre) e
necessario tener present che,
sebbene ci si trovi in Sicilia,
qui la temperature pu6 rag-
giungere minime molto basse.
E' quindi consigliabile essere
equipaggiati con un maglione
ed una giacca a vento e calzare
scarpe adatte (meglio se scar-
poncini da trekking, perched
spesso in alto si trova la neve).
.Chi dovesse arrivare sprov-
visto del-giusto abbigliamento,
pu6 comunque noleggiare gi-
* acche a vento e scarpe adatte.
Inoltre, dato che il riverbero
del sole pu6 essere molto in-
tenso, e meglio essere sempre
provvisti di occhiali da sole.
L'ascesa al vulcano pu6 es-
sere effettuata sia dal versante
nord che dal versante sud. I
due percorsi offrono panorami
e caratteristiche diverse.

I SILHOUETTES

by Emily Carney


The bus system has always
had a public image issue.
"There is a .perception that
low-income people take buses
in urban areas versus areas
that are more rural. Just pub-
lic transportation in general,
people think, 'Oh, I'm above
that,"' reported Sandra Pinto,
the interim public information
officer of the Hillsborough
Area Transit System (HART).
However,
Pinto is here to
make sure Tam-
pa Bay's citizens
are aware that
the bus system
is a fast and
cost-effective
way for workers s
and families to
get around the
county. "Trains
are different ..
the mayor in
New York City,
rides the train.
That's a stigma.
I'm pretty sure.
HART has had to
deal with in the
past. I think the
new buses corn-
ing will hopefully
change that im-
age or percep-
tion."
Pinto's own
story began in
New York City.
"My parents.
Nicholas and
Myriam, are from
Colombia; I was
born and raised
in New York -
New York City,
Queens, to be
specific," she re-
lated.
"My dad had
a printing comr- m

bia and my momr
worked for a
publication com-r I
pany like the ,I want t
phone book, but
their version of HART t(
that. It was a big
company and she worked at
the executive level. They came
to the United States because
my dad's family his sister
and brother told him the
U.S. was a place of opportu-
nity and a place to grow and
expand. They were already
living in New York, in Queens.
My father decided to check it
out.
"He decided he wanted to
stay in the United States. He
went back to Colombia and
sold his business. My mom
came two years later. He al-
ready had a job when he came
back to New York he had his
green card and everything.
It was basically for more-op-
portunity. They thought, in
the long run, their kids could
have opportunities and go to
school. Not that there weren't
opportunities in Colombia,
but there were more oppor-
tunities here." She was raised
alongside her brother, Javier.
Her late father was de-
termined to work hard for
the good of the family. "He
worked for a coffee company
in Secaucus, New Jersey. He
had to travel from New York
to New Jersey every day and
leave very early in the morn-
ing just to beat, traffic, at
five o'clock. That's where he
worked throughout his entire
life," she said.
Her parents. also under-
scored the importance of their
children's heritage through
language. "My parents' rules
were that obviously they knew
we were going to learn English
in school, but they still wanted


us to preserve our language.
They wanted us to learn how
to speak Spanish fluently...
they wanted us to be able to
write it and read it. At home,
we only spoke Spanish," she
said. Pinto graduated from St.
Agnes Academic High School -
"An all-girls school, with uni-
forms, the whole thing," she
laughed and went to Hofstra
University, where she studied

be out in the community and
) the fullest." Photo by Robert

broadcasting, sociology and
Spanish.
Pinto already had a profes-
sional goal. "I would watch the
news with my dad when he'd
get home from work. I loved
the news. To this day, I love
watching news: CNN, Univi-
sion and all those channels.
I always knew that I wanted
to be a reporter, growing up,"
she pointed out. She cred-
its her parents' emphasis on
Spanish with giving her an
edge in the news business:
"I probably sent out 40 or 50
demo tapes. I received 20 re-
sponses. I think it opened the
door and gave me opportuni-
ties, because I was bilingual,
I could do both languages at
a TV station. It has helped me
out a lot throughout my ca-
reer. I was focused! I was de-
termined that I was going to
get a job as a reporter."
Pinto's first reporting job
was about as removed from
New York City as one could
get. She first worked as a re-
porter at KFDA News Channel
10, Telemundo 36, in Ama-
rillo, Texas. "I knew what I
was going to expect going to
Amarillo. It wasn't a shock
for me to land in Amarillo and
be like, 'Woah...what have I
done?' I took a trip before to
prepare myself mentally. Am-
arillo, at that time I went, had
maybe 50,000 or 60,000 peo-
ple, compared to eight million
in New York City," she stated.
Her on-camera work got
her noticed. "One of the sta-
tions I applied to was in Saint
Angelo. The news director


went to a Telemundo affiliate
in San Antonio. He liked my
demo tape and took it with
him; he had an opening for
a reporter. He called me and
I was in Amarillo only eight
months. He said, 'Hey, do you
want to check out this station
and we could talk about pos-
sibly working together?'" she
said. She transferred to KVDA
60 Telemundo.
In 2004, Pinto
went back to New
York City with
her daughter
following her fa-
ther's passing.
"We were
very, ver', very
close. It was very
hard; I was just
in shock. It was
unexpected. That
happened in No-
vember 2004. I
was just trying
to make sense of
everything and
be there for my
family One of
my co-weorkers -
a co-worker and
photo grapher
froin San Anto-
nio, from Tel-
emundo moved
to Tasmpa. He was
working at Bay
Ne'ks 9 en Espa-
n ol. He reached
out to me."
The station
was looking for
a reporter. She
sent her demo
tape and in early
2005, was hired
at Bay News 9,
where she report-
ed in English and
Spanish.
S Pinto recount-
ed many of her
career highlights
S at Bay News 9.
"When we did the
I represent elections...those
it'sei ntwere the best. Itv
t Azmitia. was fast-paced,
an adrenaline
rush. Those were a highlight.
It: was also being able to meet
people from different walks of
life. Metropolitan Ministries
has a tent during Christmas
time. Being able to go visit
the families and see all the
stuff they do for families dur-
ing the holidays.. the people
from Metropolitan Ministries
are really nice and you could
see the things they were doing
and how dedicated the volun-
teers were."
Pinto herself volunteers at
Grace Family Church in Lutz.
"I have a lot of opportunities
to do volunteer work. I think
it's important that you give
back. Some people do it mon-
etarily; some people do it with
their time. You appreciate
everything else you've been
given and you've been blessed
with. It's always a good feeling
to give back and make a dif-
ference, or at least try to make
a difference in somebody's
life. I used to be involved with
the Boys and Girls Club as
well, but now I mostly focus
on church."
As her daughter grew old-
er, Pinto wanted to spend
more time with her. In 2010,
she left Bay News 9. "It was
kind of where I sat down, re-
focused and tried to think
about things. The reason why
I went into public relations
and marketing was because
at the time, my daughter
was about eight. She wasn't
having the normal life other
kids were having. They'd play
sports, like soccer or basket-
ball. She wasn't getting to do


that, because I'd be at work,
even on the weekends. If there
was breaking news, I'd have to
stay longer." She often worked
12-hour days at the station.
"I felt it was time to focus
on something else, see what
my abilities were and what
else I could do. I wanted to
dedicate more time so she
could enjoy her childhood and
have her enjoy everything,"
she said. She went on to work
in marketing and public rela-
tions with Hoyu, a Japanese
hair care company, and the
American College of Physi-
cian Executives (ACPE). Her
daughter, now 12, flourished:
"She's a straight-A student.
She plays soccer and she's a
really good girl," she said with
pride.
In the last few months, she
gained a new opportunity: to
become the interim public in-
formation officer at the HART,
which is responsible for pro-
viding public transit to thou-
sands of Hillsborough resi-
dents.
"It was through knowing
and connecting with people. I
heard Marcia Mejia was leav-
ing and I just reached out.
Things started happening. It
was like everything happened
one after another!" she said
with a smile.
Pinto intends to keep up
her predecessor's relation-
ships with the media and the
community. "Marcia Mejia
had a great relationship with
the media and was out there,
out and about in the com-
munity. That's what I want
to continue to do...I want to
be out in the community and
represent HART to the full-
est," 'she reported.
"I want us to be more in-
volved in the community we
have a lot of projects coming
up, especially the MetroRap-
id," she said. MetroRapid will
feature fewer stops, a quicker
transit speed and technologi-
cal enhancements to make
getting around the county
easier.
"That's going to launch
in June. We're really excited
about that, because it's an-
other form of transportation
to the community. Not every-
one has a car. Not everyone
has the means to-get a car, so
they rely on public transpor-
tation. I think MetroRapid is
going to be a good thing it
will be a faster way to get peo-
ple to work, school and wher-
ever they need to go."
Pinto again touched on the
public perception of bus trav-
el. "I think MetroRapid will be
different. It's quicker than the
HART buses now. It will be
good for people who haven't
taken a bus ride before, be-
cause it looks a certain way
or, 'I just don't ride the bus.'
Hopefully it will attract more
ridership and people who
would have never, thought
about riding a bus."
She added, "Gas prices are
increasing again. It's a lot of
money...it's a strain on fami-
lies. A small vehicle like mine,
just to fill up my car, it takes
about $50 a week. That's a
toll...you calculate it and it's
going to be a toll on families;
it's a lot. The economy is get-
ting better, but still, it can be
a strain. Maybe the bus is a
way for them to save money.
I think the new bus service


coming out it's faster and it
looks pleasing to the eye, very
modem.
"Also, the shelters where
the bus is going to be are very
different. We hope that will
attract people who normally
would say, 'I'm just going to
drive,' but maybe they'll want
to leave their car at home and
take the bus," she said.
"With Hispanics, I have
been encouraging reaching
out to that community in their
own language. If I do a media
release or a flyer in English,
it should be translated. That
way, you're reaching out to
the community saying, 'Hey,
you're that important to us
that we're going to be writ-
ing everything in English and
Spanish, because we want
to communicate in your lan-
guage.' The reality is that His-
panics are the 'majority but
minority' group. They're grow-
ing.
"It's not to say people don't
want to assimilate or English
is going to be second fiddle,
but it's nice to appreciate oth-
ers' cultures. That's what it's
all about... reaching out and
getting the word out, in an-
other language.
"In English, it's about bat-
tling the stigma about the
buses and what people see it
as...that it's lower class or for
low-income people, and to try
to change it. Will it change?
It's something you have to
see through over the years, by
continuing and through edu-
cation."
Pinto is bubbly and posi-
tive about her new role within
HART. "I really believe in what
HART stands for and I'm re-
ally happy I'm here. It's so
funny, because when I used
to be a reporter at Bay News
9, I did stories with HART and-
other organizations, such as
Metropolitan Ministries, St.
Joseph's, you name it. I al-
ways kept in mind the orga-
nizations I really admired a lot
- HART was one of them. It's
funny that I'm here!
"Everyone's really nice
here, really dedicated, with
LOTS of years of experience.
I'm really hoping to bring my
personality and all the skills
that I have to the team."
While Pinto is a team player,
she hopes to change the bus
route's image.

JA WEHA DIT ANEA


(Continued from page 1)
in SoHo. Over 110 supporters and
well-wishers gathered to kick-off
Griffin's campaign for the seat
being vacated by current Commis-
sioner Al Higginbotham in 2014.

The teachers of Jefferson High
School have been criticized for the
"Wall of Shame" dry-erase board in
the teachers' lounge.
The board was placed to record
students' faux pas such as, "Where
are the Irish from, Ireland?"
The dry-erase board did not
attribute the quotes, was mostly
out of students' sight and was as
temporary as picking up an eraser.
The right or wrong of the practice
can be debated, but it is harmless
enough when compared to the real
Wall of Shame the Internet.
Recently the newspapers are full
of stories of students filming other
students getting beaten and abused
by their peers and posting the em-
barrassing videos on the Internet,
where they go viral and can never
be erased.
While the Jefferson teachers are
chastised, their students who make
these posts do so outside the rules
and without repercussions.
Maybe we should take these stu-
dents' smartphones and give them
dry-erase boards.

Sweetbay closing many of its
inner-city locations is no surprise

its minority marketing when it was

Before that, it was named Kash

out to Black and Hispanic markets.
For the last decade, it has focused
its marketing on the White suburbs
and has done little to identify with
inner-city populations..

Bob Odom and Bob Clark held

sioner Ken Hagan's campaign for

Tampa Goes Letterless
Back in the summer of
2001, the city of Tampa was
preparing for a visit by the
U.S. Olympic Committee.
Tampa, improbably enough,
was on the official list of cit-
ies, including New York, San
Francisco, Los Angeles, Dal-
las, Houston and Baltimore-
Washington, vying to be
America's choice in the inter-'
national competition for 2012
Olympic Games' host. As it
turned out, New York was the
American designated, London
was the ultimate winner and
Tampa (actually a regional
hub) was a transportation-
challenged also-ran.
Here we are a dozen years
later, the U.S. Olympic Com-
mittee has sent 2024 interest-
gauging letters to the'mayors
of 35 American cities, and
Tampa didn't even get one.
But Columbus, Ohio did. So
did Rochester, N.Y.
From long-shot contender
to no-shot pretender.
What changed in addition
to the city no longer being
interested in seriously bid-
ding for anything bigger than
a Super Bowl? Well, Tropical
Storm Isaac was an unwel-
come reminder of what late
summer can yield. But also
call it sick transit gloria. Ex-
tensive public transit is one
of the minimal criteria. Thus,
any would-be Olympics' host
with an ugly reputation for
mess transit need not apply -
nor expect a letter of inquiry
from the USOC.
Recall that back in 2000,
a constitutional amendment
in Florida was passed requir-
ing high-speed rail to connect
major Florida cities. Then the
following summer, the U.S.
Senate approved a bill allo-
cating seed money for a high-
speed rail system between


Tampa and Orlando. Seem-
ingly, modern transit was in
the mix. So, it wasn't incon-
ceivable that Tampa's bid, a
key of which was rapid-tran-
sit buses, inter-city rail and
high-speed rail, didn't have
an element of plausibility.
As it turned out, of course, it
proved a reach too far along
with outrageously expensive
subplots.
But, c'mon, not even a pro
forma letter?
Well, maybe somebody
noticed that our oxymoronic
mass-transit still consists of
buses and ad hoc HOV lanes.
A regional light-rail referen-
dum was voted down in 2010,
and the following year Gov.
Rick Scott pre-emptively de-
clined billions from the fed-
eral government for that high-
speed rail link between Tampa
and Orlando. And just last
week, Scott's transportation
budget was a paean to urban
sprawl and those who still en-
vision Florida paving its way
through the 21st century.
Who's interested in a com-
mitment to the long-maligned
status quo and the logistical
Games from hell?
No, Tampa is no longer an
Olympic wannabe. Just ask.
Ed Turancik. That "obscenely
expensive" folly is well behind
us.. But, still, it would have
been nice to have at least got-
ten a USOC letter. Respect-
fully declining to participate
ensures a level of respect.
Target Marketing
First, the good news. That
large building at the inter-
section of Interstate 275 and
Fletcher Avenue, the one pre-
viously occupied by a Sticks
n' Stuff furniture showroom,
is no longer vacant. No one,
of course, wants a big empty
box in the 'hood that used to
employ locals.


Now, the less-than-benign
news. Last month it became
Bullets n' Stuff- ok, "Shooters
World" one of the largest gun
stores in the United States.
It's obviously responding to
the rapidly-ratcheting market
for firearms and ammunition
in this country and especial-
ly in this stand-your-ground
state. These are trying times,
to be sure, where gun violence
in the headlines prompts out-
cries for both more gun regu-
lation and more opportuni-
ties for gun retail. It's modern
marketplace basics, even if
not as envisioned by Adam
Smith.
Now, the more concerning
news. Shooters World is not
some yahoo magnet or surviv-
alists' enclave. Its marketing
is savvy, its approach well-tar-
geted, its appeal mainstream-
transcending age and gen-
der. The facility is attractively
functional, not gritty. It has
a concierge desk, a museum
and numerous HDTVs show-
ing sports and movies. Its
employees are well-groomed
and non-commissioned, and
a third of them are female.
Sure, it sells sniper rifles, si-
lencers, extended-cap clips
and the never-more-popular
AR-15 assault rifles but it
also features kids' toys, purs-
es for concealed-weapons car-
riers, pink pistols, ladies-only
concealed weapons permits
and gun-safety classes for
ages 7-12. The shooting range
comes with a lounge with free
drinks.
Since opening, the store
has been playing to a packed
house. Its early success
speaks volumes. It combines
an ever-expanding market
with marketing smarts and
a welcoming image. It wants
to attract and cultivate long-
term customers, not one-and-


private enterprises from start-ups to
Fortune 500 companies. Our lawyers
know Florida's economy, its history,
and its business and political leaders.
From real estate, corporate, bankruptcy
and health law to commercial and
complex litigation, our clients are our
most important priority, and we strive
to be their most important resource.

Major League Base-

has increased this season
to $490,000. For perspec-
tive and an inkling of soci-

Then again, Speaker of the

Erstwhile Tampa Bay Ray
Jonny Gomes a Red Sox?
Sure, MLB is a business,
and Carl Crawford and Rocco
Baldelli playing at Fenway
was weird. But Rays' uber
fan-favorite Gomes? This is
just counter intuitive.
Interesting piece in the
New York Times about David
Price, the Rays' Cy Young
Award winner. It character-
izes him as a spirited leader
on a team known for its infor-
mality and loose clubhouse. It
portrays him as a cheerlead-
er who loves hijinks and Joe
Maddon's Rays' way. He refers
to ever-escalating contract
deals involving a few MLB
peers as "insane" and an exer-
cise in "Monopoly money."
But the NYT piece also un-
derscores Price's bottom line
for a franchise that may not be
able to ultimately accommo-
date his market value. When
it comes to his next contract,
he won't be offering the Rays a
hometown "discount."
"As major league players,
we're a brotherhood," explains
Price. "We have to look out
for other guys that are com-
ing along ... If we sign a lesser
deal ... it affects everybody,
not just yoxi. That's something
you want to take into consid-
eration,. because people have
obviously paved the way for
us to make the money that
we've been making. We're
very fortunate, and we're very
grateful."
Who's been advising Tim
Tebow? Manti Te'o? He's
done underwear ads, he's
trivialized religion with his
trademarked "tebowing" and,
most recently, he accepted
a speaking engagement at
the notorious First Baptist
Church in Dallas. Only when
an uproar ensued, did Tebow
react and cancel his April ap-
pearance, saying it was due
to "new information that has
been brought to- my atten-
tion." First Baptist is not new
to controversy. Its pastor, the
Rev. Robert Jeffress, is known
for preaching that gay sex is
sinful, Mormonism is a cult
and Islam promotes violence
and pedophilia. Apparently
Tebow was the last one to find
out.
Naming rights can of-
ten be a double-edged sword.

deep-pocketed GEO Group is
the nation's second-largest
prison operator. Not everyone
is pleased, including those
close to FAU who cringe at
all those "Slammer" and "Jail

but assured. The one most
likely to stick: "OWLcatraz."
Ouch.
Net Loss
University of Tampa offi-
cials will be dedicating UT's
new, Kennedy Boulevard-
fronting, lacrosse stadium
early next month. Construc-
tion has taken a little longer
than expected, but the facility
is expected to be ready for the
team's final home game. One
stadium detail, however, will
go unaddressed. The stands
are not on the Kennedy side.
Instead there is a 60-foot-high
net to prevent lacrosse balls
from flying into traffic. It's
functional but really cheesy
looking and unworthy of all
that UT has been contributing
to the renaissance of the en-
trance into downtown.
Media Matters
A big issue in the movie
biz is the pattern of theater
owners increasingly charging
movie companies to run their
trailers. For example, Regal
Entertainment Group has
now cut the number of trailers
that studios may run free with
each movie from two to one.
Here's a suggestion: How
about theater owners remit-
ting some of that trailer in-
come to customers. Ever go
to the theater because you re-
ally want to see a given movie,
say, Lincoln or The Artist or
The King's Speech only to be
initially assaulted by multiple,
high-decibel, over-the-top ac-
tion, violent trailers of mov-
ies you would never consider
seeing? Good, I'm glad I'm not
alone.
As a way of marking the
centennial of the birth of
Richard Nixon, the Nixon
Presidential Library in Yorba
Linda, Calif., has put out an
exhibit of newly declassified
documents. Some of them re-
veal behind-the-scenes rela-
tions between Nixon and the
Clinton White House. Nixon-
as- elder-statesman provided
Bill Clinton with welcomed
post-Cold War advice.
In an accompanying exhib-
it video, Clinton pays tribute
to Nixon at his 1994 funeral.
"May the day of judging Presi-
dent Nixon on anything less
than his entire life and career
come to a close."
How ironic. And how ap-
plicable.

Cry Me
She sometimes cries from
the moment she wakes un-
til she falls back asleep that
night.
A little thing will set her off
perhaps she wants a juice
box and we don't have any,
maybe the dress she wants to
wear is in the wash, or possi-
bly she is devastated over the
fact that Phineas and Ferb's
mother will not take one day
away from the hair salon to
find out if Candace is telling
the truth about her brothers.
Whatever sets my 4-year-
old daughter off is obviously
not the reason she is still
crying TWELVE hours later.
Something else is amiss. I
have no idea what is going on
in her head and, even if I did,
I probably would have no idea
how to make it better.
I have read countless -opin-
ion blogs, articles and books
on understanding daughters
and have tried just about every
method advised.
I tried asking her why she is
crying,. to which she replied in
between sobs, "Because I want
to." O ... K ...
I tried giving her space
and leaving the room as tears
poured out of her eyes, but I
had to call a halt to that after
an hour due to the fact that I
do- not have flood insurance.
I tried telling her jokes, but
apparently she doesn't under-
stand my brand of humor; her
lack of laughter cannot possi-
bly be because I am not funny.
I tried hugging her to calm
her sorrows, but I am pretty
sure I felt her hands sneaking
up my back and toward my
throat, so I decided to never try
that again.
So what am I supposed
to do? Why does she cry so
much? How can I make it stop?
It is as confounding a ques-
tion as why she feels the need
to change clothes 100 times
each morning. She is 4 years
old! Who does she have to im-
press? But I'm getting ahead of
myself; one problem at a time.
Before I tackle clothes, I need
to tackle tears.
When I asked my wife why
our daughter cries so much,
she simply replied, "Because
she is a little girl. That's-what
they do."
My first reaction to that an-
swer was, "What? That's as ab-
surd an answer as 'Because I
want to.'" I refused to believe
that there was no concrete an-
swer. But apparently, there is
not.
I have asked countless
friends if their daughters also
cry from sunrise to sunset and
they each jumped from their
seat, excited that they are not
alone, and exclaimed, "Yes!
What is that all about? What
do you do?" And then they
each slumped into their seat
when I explained that I was
hoping that they would know.
This is our fate in life, we have
all surmised, stressing "in
life." My sister is 39 and is still.
just as emotional around my
parents.
My friend Chris perhaps
said it best, "Girls are like
cats we never know what


a River
goes through their minds. A
cat will jump on your lap out
of nowhere, let you scratch its
head, and then just as impul-
sively bite your hand and run
from the room. Boys are like
dogs dumb and loyal and
easy to figure out. All a dog
wants is its butt scratched and
food in its bowl."
That is as poetic as it can be
put boys are indeed simple,
actually simpler than dogs.
Boys smell because they are
gross. They like playing in dirt
because it feels gross. They like
to spit because it looks gross.
They love potty talk because
they think that anything gross
is funny. Basically, boys are
just gross. Boys never get more
complicated as they grow into
men. The sole reason behind
their actions simply changes
from "Because they are gross"
to "Because they want to get a
girl's attention."
But girls ... WOW ... girls
... it may be easier to figure
out quantum physics. I am
convinced that not even girls
understand girls, otherwise
mothers would be able to stop
their daughters from crying.
The understanding of girls
seems to be a circle of life for
males.
When we are boys, we have
no idea what to do with girls.
When we are teens, we
think we know what we want
to with girls, but have no idea
how to go about it.
As young men, we parade
around town with our chests
puffed out and falsely proclaim
that we know everything about
women.
And then when we become
fathers, we finally admit that
after all these years we still
have no idea what to do with
girls.
I once read that nothing is
stronger than the bond be-
tween a father and daughter.
This has to be true, because
only a strong love can enable
a father to withstand the emo-
tional torture inflicted about
him by a daughter.
My daughter, I love you
more than words could explain
- even words from a Hallmark
Card but you drive me in-
sane. Please stop crying.
******
Lost in the heartbreak of
leaving Ben behind to return
to the working world has been
that minor announcement I
made a few weeks back con-
cerning my coming fourth
child.
The question on everyone's
lips has of course been, "What
is the sex?" It is still too early
to tell. Plus, we plan on waiting
until birth.
So the next logical ques-
tion is. of course, "What do you
want?" This is where Amy and
I differ. I think this week's in-
stallment answers that ques-
tion. But more on that next
week.

The debate over control
of firearms in the U.S. has
again reached fever pitch.
Politicians in Washington
are in the midst of debates
to concoct new laws that will
divest individuals of the right
to possess firearms of certain
types, capacities or, as some
would have it all guns. One
wonders, what are the law-
maker's agendas? Is there
a concern for the safety of
Americans? Or, is the inten-
tion of our lawmakers to gar-
ner votes through notoriety?
Can they resolve the issues if
they are allowed to receive a
free cup of coffee from special
interest groups?
During a recent Facebook
Town Hall hosted by Parents
magazine, Vice President Joe
Biden, in his infinite, never,
to be surpassed wisdom and
leadership, offered his solu-
tion: "If you want to protect
yourself, get a double bar-
reled shotgun," Biden re-
sponded to a question on per-
sonal protection. "I promise
you, as I .told my wife, we live
in an area that's wooded and
somewhat secluded. I said,
Jill, if there's ever a problem,
just walk out on the balcony
here, walk out, put that dou-
ble barreled shotgun and fire-
two blasts outside the house."
Unresolved conflicts have
arisen and will continue to
fester between the differ-
ent factions. Those repre-
senting the interests of gun
manufacturers, retailers and
gun clubs will .use the U.S.,
Constitution as their shield.
Those mostly nationally un-
recognized will surely appeal
to the opposite. side to gain
notoriety.
Second Amendment
(Amendment II) to the United
States Constitution is the
part of the United States Bill
of Rights that protects the
right of the people to keep
and bear arms. It was ad-
opted on December 15, 1791,
along with the rest of the Bill
of Rights. The U.S. Supreme
Court upheld that right in the
case District of Columbia v.


Heller, 554 U.S. 570 (2008).
There, the Court ruled that
the Second Amendment pro-
tects an individual's right to
possess a firearm, uncon-
nected to service in a militia.
Let us go back to a time
before the U.S. Constitution,
the U.S. or any other nation
existed. As the story goes, two
guys, one good guy and one
jealous of the good guy, got
into a fracas. The bad guy,
Cain, used the jaw of an ass to
kill his brother Abel. Whether
you believe that story or not,
history abounds with the well
documented stories of people
killing each other. In another
asinine story, the powerful
Samson is said to have killed
1,000 Philistines with what
we suppose was the jaw of
another donkey.
Human nature apparently
has not changed since people
evolved from lower life forms,
came from outer space or ap-
peared in a puff as a result
of its creation by a supreme
being. Humans will find ex-
cuses to kill one another for
.all kinds of reasons, with the
use of all types of items. Some
kill or. have killed allegedly to
save the poor of a nation from
the rich and powerful.
Others kill people because
they are Jews, blacks, the
infirm, mentally disabled or
..those that have something
the killer wants. Lances,
scimitars, hot oil, gas, fire,
garrotes, plain ropes, and
mechanical devises and oh,
yes, later in history, firearms,
all have all been used for the
elimination of human beings.
I heard someone recently
say that guns don't kill peo-
ple; the statement said, other
people do. I happen to agree
with that statement. I also
agree with the notion that is
far easier to kill someone with
an AK 47 than with a spear
or the jaw of an ass. The gun
adds the element of space to
the deed of killing someone.
When shooting someone, the
killer will not perceive the feel
of the blade penetrating the
body, scrapping the bone as


it finds its way into the hu-
man innards. It takes less
courage to kill someone from
the distance afforded by fire-
arms, when a simple pull of
the trigger desensitizes the
act thus making the target an
object, no longer a human be-
ing. Add to the equation the
fact that, to some people on
this earth, human life has no
more value than that of an in-
sect. When people have been
indoctrinated since birth to
believe that human life, even
their own, is not important,
they will eventually use some
weapon, guns included, to
kill another person. When
people believe that their only
salvation, path to heaven, or
road to riches includes kill-
ing, we believe they are likely
to use a gun to kill others.
We presently have laws in
the U.S. that are supposed
to filter-out those unstable,
felonious or otherwise unfit
to possess firearms. Back-
ground checks by the respon-
sible authorities are in place.
So what is missing?
Stolen guns cannot be leg-
islated into inactivity. Neither
can guns purchased at gun
shows without. background
checks. And, apparently,
human nature cannot be
changed. One thing is cer-
tain, legislators, in the. mad
race for power producing no-
toriety and oh, yes, an occa-
sional free cup of coffee, will
not arrive at a reasonable so-
lution without the assistance
of local lawvenforcement's in-
put.
Perhaps with the assis-
tance of those leaders of law
enforcement, whose reputa-
tions and lives of their troops

Of course the county gave
millions to the out-of-state
and already affluent corpora-
tion called Bass Pro. Did you
really expect anything differ-
ent? I'm a natural Pollyanna
and held out some hope that
this time would be different,
but I was wrong.
Hillsborough County and
Florida in general has a his--
tory of falling in love with any-
thing new, especially if it isn't
proposed by one of our own.
That precedent began long
ago, when town fathers fell all
over themselves to build the
first bridge across the Hills-
borough River because Hen-
ry Plant wanted it.
Rowing across the river had
been good enough for residents
since settlement in 1824, but
in 1883, when a Yankee want-
ed a bridge, the tax money to
pay for it suddenly appeared.
Plant also got a whooping tax
break for himself: the agree-
ment with local government
not only charged taxpayers for
the bridge, but also assured
that the $3,000,000 hotel nev-
er would pay more than $200
in annual taxes and fees in
perpetuity.
Plant died in 1897, just six
years after the hotel opened in
1891. His (second) wife quar-
reled with his son; neither was
strongly attracted to the area;
and the Tampa Bay Hotel soon
went bankrupt. Of course, it
is a historical treasure now -
but only because taxpayers
picked up the bill.
I'm not saying that Bass
Pro is in danger of bankruptcy
-. although one, never knows
these days. Its executives ap-
Piarently did duck hard ques-
tions from Commissioner Kev-
in Beckner, who has a solid
background in' finance.1 "In the
end, Beckner, a Democrat,
was the sole commissioner to
vote against the government
giveaway. "
Its greatest cheerleader
was :Republican Ken Hagan,
the last vestige of the influ-
ence of the late Ralph Hughes.
Since his death, it is clear
that Hughes cheated the fed-
eral government out of mil-
lions in income taxes all the
while biting the hand that
fed his business. He got rich
on government contracts, as
his Cast-Crete was paid with


tax dollars to pave over the
state. Bass Pro, too, was all
about road construction. Like
beauty, wasteful government
spending is in the .eye of the
beholder.
But the point I want to pon-
der is whether our system of
county government enables
such decisions.
We all learn in grade school
that democratic governments
have three branches: the exec-
utive, the legislative, and the
judiciary. Except in Hillsbor-
ough County, where we elect
our county judges and our
legislative branch, the .Board
of County Commissioners.
(BOCC) but we do not have
an elected executive.
Many people think other-
wise because of the visibility
of Tampa's mayor but huge
numbers of residents with
Tampa addresses don't seem
to realize that they don't live
within the city's boundaries
and that they never see may-
oral candidates on their bal-
lots. Big suburbs such as
Carrollwood fall under county
government, and although
their postal address is Tampa,
the mayor of Tampa is not
their mayor. They do not elect
any executive.
Brandon's situation is even
more egregious. Like Car-
rollwood, there are no official
boundaries to say exactly
what constitutes the area. If,
however, someone in St. Pe-
tersburg asks someone else
where they live and gets the
reply, "Brandon," the likeli-
hood is that the Brandonite is
one of about a quarter-million
residents.
Indeed, two-thirds of Hills-
borough County's population
now lives east of Highway 301.
Their addresses range alpha-
betically from Apollo Beach to
Wimauma; they run geograph-
ically from Thonotosassa in
the north to Sun City Center
arind Ruskin in the south. To
the north of the City of Tam-
pa, we have not only new.sub-
urbs such as West Chase and
Northdale, but also old com-
munities such as Odessa and
Lutz. No one who lives there
has any opportunity to vote for
the chief of the local govern-
ment to which they pay taxes.
This is especially notable
in the recent case of Brandon


and Bass Pro. The Greater
Brandon Chamber of Com-
merce estimates its popula-
tion at 248,000; it probably is
the most populous unincor-
porated area in the state. In
contrast, the Census Bureau
reported Tallahassee's 2010
population as 181,376. Tal-
lahassee has elected its may-
or since statehood in 1845.
Brandon not only does not
elect a mayor, it currently
has no representative on the
BOCC.
Yes, six of the seven county
commissioners have Tampa
addresses; the seventh is from
Plant City. With no one at all
from their community on the
dais at the BOCC's last hear-
ing on Bass Pro, how much at-
tention do you think truly was
given to the folks in the audi-
ence who were most affected?
But BOCC gerrymandering
is too complex a topic to get
into right now. Let's instead
go back to the question of an
elected executive.
According to the last cen-
sus, Hillsborough County has
almost 1.3 million residents.
Eight states are smaller. They
range from Wyoming with a
mere half-million to Rhode
Island, with just over a mil-
lion. It's almost nine states, as
Hillsborough almost beats out
New Hampshire, too. The oth-
er states are Vermont, North
Dakota, Alaska, South Dako-
ta, Delaware, and Montana.
Let me repeat that: eight
states have populations small-
er than our county's popula-
tion. Can you imagine a state
that does not elect its governor?
The problem is parochial
thinking, a failure to update
our reality. More than that, it
is.a failure to think abstractly.
When discussion turns to the
possibility of a county mayor,
far too many people immedi-
ately begin wondering aloud
who would win the first elec-
tion.
Let's stop focusing on the
short term and, forgoing our
role as constitution writers.
We are capable of amending
the county charter and creat-
ing a more accountable form
of government. Let's develop a
structure where we can clearly
see where the buck stops.

E Chairman

The Gods Must Be Crazy


I don't believe in omens or
good and bad signs as they
pertain to the karmic universe.
Whether people have good
or bad luck has to do more
with being human and less
with mystical forces reward-
ing or punishing us. I believe
people can get lucky, but I
don't believe in luck.
By "lucky," I mean some-
thing unlikely, but good, hap-
pened.
Same goes for bad luck.
Sometimes bad things hap-
pen such as an illness or a car
accident and people want to
know why.
It's just the way it is.
In order to be "lucky" or
"unlucky" a person must first
put himself or herself in a
position to receive said luck.
For example, you can't hit the
lottery if you don't play it and
you can't get in a car accident
if you don't get in a car. The
percentages say that every
day, thousands of people will
hit the lottery and thousands
of people will get in car acci-
dents.
Often people will wear a
team's jersey during a game
or have some sort of ritual
that supposedly helps put the
team over and achieve vic-
tory. The belief is that there
are baseball gods and foot-.
ball gods and God knows how
many other gods. As ridicu-
lous as it sounds, people be-
lieve the gods are out there
and they know some very
important things about these
gods.
The gods care what kind of
clothing you wear. They care
which mug you use to enjoy
your beverages. They care
which pant leg you put on
first. Etc, etc, etc.
These are people who
spend Sunday morning going
to church, yet when they leave
church, they forget about the
God of Abraham and shift
their prayers to the god of the
Buccaneers.
This is because they don't
believe the God of Abraham
trifles with field goals and
touchdowns, but the god of
Florida State does and he's
usually pretty angry.
Not as angry as the god of
the New York Mets, but that's
another story.
Getting back to my point,
I don't believe in any of this
karma nonsense. You have to
put yourself in situations that
help you receive a desired re-
sult and if it doesn't happen,
that's life.
So, why does something
that happened this week have
me worried?
I-wrote last week about my
engagement to my girlfriend,
Keri.
I did it the old fashioned
way, on one knee and kept it


I Anywhere at Anytime 1


low key, as she gets enough
of my humor and I wanted
something to be serious for
once.
For the last two weeks, her
friends and co-workers have
been fawning over her ring,
while everyone tells me either
congratulations or, "It's about
time."
Wednesday afternoon, I
had a conversation with Keri
over the phone with her tell-
ing me that her family and
friends who don't live around
here want her to post pictures
of the ring to Facebook.
She has resisted, saying
that if they want to see it, they
can come down and visit to
see it. I applauded her effort,
but something strange hap-
pened at that moment.
She mentioned that every
time someone mentions her
ring, she looks down at it' and
stares at it for a while. While
on the phone with me, telling
me about her conversation
with her mother regarding
wedding plans, she let out a
shriek.
One of the diamonds from
the ring was missing.
The ring has an emerald-
cut diamond in the center,
with two emerald-cut dia-
monds flanking both sides
and has diamonds around the
ring itself. One of the emerald-
cut diamonds on the side was
missing from. the ring,' caus-
ing panic, desperation and
then, depression.
We looked everywhere for
it, but we've had no luck. I
told her that we could always
replace the diamond, but that
wasn't the point for her.
The ring is a symbol of
something grander than us
and something tarnished that
symbol.
She is a God-fearing wom-
an but she couldn't help but
wonder if this was a bad sign.
I told her that I didn't believe
that the universe worked that
way and that there's no such
thing as an omen.
Now I just have to figure
out which god controls mar-
riage karma.
If it's the same god who
controls the Mets, we could be
in trouble.*
*My apologies to the angry
but righteous Mets god, if this
is not his doing.

Location as Part of "Lens Pier"


The "Lens Pier," a design by Michael Maltzan
Architecture, is scheduled to be open by Labor Day
2015. The Columbia Restaurant Group will open a
waterfront location at the new pier. Image by Michael

On Thursday, Feb. 21, the
Columbia Restaurant Group
delivered a proposal to the
City of St. Petersburg for the
construction of a new Colum-
bia Restaurant location on the'
waterfront in downtown St.
Petersburg as part of the Lens
Pier Project.
Richard Gonzmart, Colum-
bia Restaurant Group presi-
dent and fourth generation
family member, said, "The
restaurant will seat, approxi-
mately 220 people indoors and
about 100 diners outdoors. A
rooftop venue will also be part
of the plan serving cocktails
and tapas, and this -area will
be available for functions.
Our family feels very comfort-
able and confident in invest-
ing $3,000,000 into this new
project. The new restaurant


will create over 135 jobs."
The Columbia Restaurant
Group has opened two restau-
rants at The Pier since 1988,
The Columbia Restaurant and
Cha Cha Coconuts. These two
restaurants are on The Pier's
fourth and fifth floors and will
remain open, serving lunch
and dinner, until Friday, May
31.
"The Columbia has been a
proven tenant at The Pier for
25 years. We are very pleased
that Mr. Gonzmart and the
Columbia Restaurant Group
share our vision for the new
St. Pete Pier, see its potential
and wish to remain a part of
St. Petersburg's bright fu-
ture," said St. Petersburg
Mayor Bill Foster. The new
Lens Pier is scheduled to be
open by Labor Day 2015.
