There is a little inside joke among
some Hispanics that Argentinians
feel like they are better than all
other Hispanics. With the naming
of an Argentine pope, many of these
Hispanics are wondering if the
Argentinians will now have proof.

Enough people have said that
former Miami Mayor Manny Diaz is
dropping out of the governor's race
and that even without him saying
it, he's effectively out.
That makes the race a little more
wide open on the Democratic side.
Charlie Crist continues to get


closer to announcing. We hear he
pulled some people aside at a fund-
raiser for another candidate and
asked for their help to raise money
for his gubernatorial race.

Michael Steinberg added his
name to those seeking appointment
by the governor to the Hillsborough
County Children's Board. The
board has five members with ex-
pired terms. Only two are seeking
reappointment.

Former State Representative
Michael Scionti will make his first

"Tiempo Libre", un agasajo cubano


Los amantes de la misica
cubana, el jazz afroamericano,
y la excepcional combinaci6n
de lo culto con lo popular, no
pueden desperdiciar la opor-
tunidad de asistir a uno de los
dos conciertos, o a los dos, que
ofrecerd el grupo "Tiempo Li-
bre" con la Orquesta de la Flo-
rida, los dias 6 y 7 de abril en
el Mahaffey Theater y el Ruth
Eckerd Hall, respectivamente.
El director musical Jorge
G6mez al piano; Raul Rodri-
guez, trompeta; Leandro Gon-
zalez, congas; Wilvi Rodriguez
Guerra, bajo; Armando (Pu-
tuti) Arce, percusi6n; Xavier
Mill, cantante; y Luis Beltrdn
Castillo, saxof6n y flauta, jun-
to a la Orquesta de la Florida,
y Sarah Hicks, como directo-
ra de orquesta invitada, com-
prenden el admirable equipo
de estas prometedoras veladas
de sabor caribefilo y contagioso
capricho arm6nico mel6dico.
Establecidos en Miami e
impregnados de su native
Cuba, los excelentes m-isicos
de "Tiempo Libre" han ensam-
blado sus aptitudes, dejando
a un lado exitosos proyectos
personales junto a artists
del calibre de Albita, Artu-
ro Sandoval, NG La Banda,
Gonzalo Rubalcaba e Isaac
Delgado, para instaurar la pri-
mera legitima banda de timba

compromises de trabajo, para
aunar prop6sitos musicales en
pos de una identidad grupal,
un estilo propio que definiera
el surgimiento de la banda y el
nombre "Tiempo Libre" que
los identifica.
A partir de su fundaci6n
en 2001, los siete integrantes
de la agrupaci6n han custo-
diado con celo el legado mu-
sical cubano, defendiendo la
legitimidad y pureza de la tan
plagiada misica de la isla ca-

sonido juvenile y actual, dentro
del process de transcultura-

sus miembros en su novedosa

logros, constitute una labor

escogidos al azar para ilustrar
la calidad de esta banda.
En enero de 2005, "Tiempo

cubana que significa algo ab-

gar estadounidense. El album
cosech6 un reconocimien-

ca especializada y el publico,
ademds fue nominado a un
Premio Grammy en 2006 en
la categoria de "Mejor Disco
de Salsa/Merengue". Un afio

merecidos aplausos con esta
pieza junto a numerosas or-

El program, tanto el saba-

A su vez, la audiencia podrfi
disfrutar de algunas piezas de
"Bach en la Habana", nomi-
nado al Grammy 2009 en la
categoria "Mejor Album Latino
Tropical", ins6lito trabajo en el
cual "Tiempo Libre" fusiona la
misica afrocubana con la del
genial compositor aleman del
period barroco. Entre los ni-
meros de este disco, "Tu Conga
Bach" tiene gran significaci6n
para los j6venes mrusicos anti-

Violaciones de Derechos
Humanos en Cuba

















"Todos los hombres tienen iguales derechos a la
libertad, a su prosperidad y a la protecci6n de las
leyes". Franqois-Marie Arouet (Voltaire)


La violaci6n de los dere-
chos humans continuCa en
Cuba. Asi lo confirm el grupo
opositor cubano, Comisi6n
Cubana de Derechos Huma-
nos y Reconciliaci6n Nacional,
donde sefial6 que medio miller
de disidentes politicos fueron
detenidos, temporalmente o pro-
cesados en Cuba el mes pasado
y sefialaron ademas, de que se
trata de una cifra muy superior
a la de enero.
El lider, Elizardo Sdnchez, se-
fial6 que en febrero del corriente
fueron procesadas y arrestadas
por motives politicos 504 perso-
nas, un nulnero superior a los
364 registrados el mes anterior.
La Comisi6n Cubana de
Derechos Humanos y Recon-
ciliaci6n Nacional ha advertido
de esta aparente escalada de la
represi6n, si bien sefiala que es
dificil ycasi impossible documen-
tar todos los casos de represi6n
political que se cometen en Cuba
por el cardcter cerrado de su go-
biemrno. En el 2012, se cerr6 con
una media de 550 detenciones
mensuales .
: La Comisi6n quisoa igual-
mente aprovechar el quinto
aniversario de la firma de dos
de los principles pactos de
derechos humans de la ONU
para denunriar que no existen
sefiales de que el gobiemrno de
Rail Castro tenga previsto rati-
ficarlos en un future cercano.
Como ejemplo de las violacio-
nes de los derechos huirianos
que se siguen' cometiendo en
Cuba, la Comisi6n ha citado el
caso del preso Antonio Ribalta
Junco, que muri6 el 16 de
febrero tras 38 dias en huelga
de hambre, para reivindicar su
inocencia. Ribalta, que falleci6
en una cdrcel de Santa Clara,
negaba haber cometido el robo
del que era acusado.
Se ha recordado ademas,
que en los filtimos 5 meses han
perdido la vida en las cdrceles
de Cuba al menos una veintena
de intemados. Para la Comisi6n
result preocupante la forma


negligente del gobiemrno al ad-
ministrar las penitenciarias, asi
como el trato cruel y degradante
que sufren los reclusos.
Por otro lado, Cuba -
apuntando a otros en lugar de
a si mismo demand este mar-
tes ante el Consejo de Derechos
Humanos poner fin a la hipocre-
sia, la selectividad y los doubles
raseros, nocivas prdcticas que
en el pasado hundieron en el
descredito a la extinta Comision.
Durante la 22 sesi6n de ese
organismo de la ONU, la em-
bajadora cubana en Ginebra,
Anayansi Rodriguez, advirti6
que muchas naciones indus-
trializadas presentan listas
de paises a los que acusan de
cometer supuestas violaciones
y, sin embargo, hacen silencio
sobre brutales casos de repre-
si6n en otros. Afirm6 Rodriguez
que en algunos casos estas
acusaciones se intentan utilizar
como pretexto para justificar
intervenciones y promover cam-
bios de gobiemrnos. La embaja-
dora demand de ese organismo
poner fin a la politizaci6n y alas
imposiciones imperiales y pro-
mover el dialogo y la cooperaci6n
genuina entire iguales.


La ley facility la inves-
tigaci6n de violaciones y la
prevenci6n de estos delitos,
ademas de dejar en pie pro-
gramas y servicios para las
victims, entire estos una line
telef6nica de atenci6n a las
victims, una red de albergues,
ayuda de vivienda y proteccio-
nes policiales reconocidas en
todos los estados del pais. La
media tambien protege a mu-
jeres indocumentadas que an-
tes no denunciaban los abuses
de sus parejas por temor a la
deportaci6n, destac6 Obama.
La ley, conocida por su si-
gla en ingles "VAWA", ademas
autoriza fondos federales para
ayudar a victims entire la
comunidad homosexual, para
servicios legales y de consejeria
familiar e incluye la emisi6n de
un total annual de 10,000 visas
"U" para victims de violencia
sexual en el pals.

mento de Justicia, la violencia

que EE.UU. registry aproxima-
damente 270.000 violaciones o

Estados Unidos consider positive la reform

migratoria cubana


Estados Unidos mantendrd
invariable su political migratoria
hacia Cuba aunque ha acogido
"positivamente" la reform mi-
gratoria vigente en Cuba desde
enero y no descarta que au-
mente el namero de visas para
cubanos el pr6ximo afilo fiscal
ante un potential crecimiento de
solicitudes, segfn un funciona-
rio consular estadounidense en
La Habana.
El peri6dico Granma, 6rgano
official del gobemrnante Partido
Comunista de Cuba (PCC, tnico
legal), public el lunes una in-
usual entrevista con el consul
general de la Secci6n de Intere-
ses de EE.UU. en La Habana
(SINA), Timothy Roche, en la
cual menciona que esa oficina
concedi6 unas 10,000 visas
temporales a cubanos entire
octubre de 2011 y septiembre
de 2012. Roche insisti6, seguin
el diario, en que la intenci6n de
Estados Unidos es "promover
las visits legales y la migraci6n
legal, ordenada y segura".


Cubanos, a las afueras del SINA, esperan un promedio
de 18 meses por la entrevista consular que les permit
obtener una visa de turista para viajar a Estados Unidos.


El consul general explic6
ademas que para viajar a
EE.UU. todavia es necesario so-
licitar un permisoa su Gobiernmo
y que 6ste sea aprobado por un
funcionario consular en una
entrevista. No obstante, Roche
sefial6 que es "imprescindible" el
estricto cumplimiento de todos
los pasos establecidos para la
obtenci6n del visado. Al mismo
tiempo denunci6 la existencia


de "empresas fraudulentas que
ofrecen citas (consulares) y
garantias de visas" a cubanos".
En Estados Unidos viven
1.8 millones de cubanos y sus
descendientes, el 80% de la
diaspora cubana. Desde el 2000
hasta el 31 de agosto del 2012
viajaron al exterior por asuntos
particulares 941.953 cubanos,
de los cuales no regresaron
120.705, es decir un 12.8 %.

Cerca de nueve millones de
nihos y adolescents trabajan
en America Latina. Los casos
mds graves se registran en
Brasil, Peri, Mexico y Colom-
bia, en ese orden, inform la
Organizaci6n Intemrnacional del
Trabajo (OIT).
"Brasil tiene el mayor nnimero
de nifios que trabajan en Ameri-
ca Latina, seguido por Peru,
Mexico, y en cuarta posici6n
estaria Colombia, sin dejar de
mencionar a Haiti", sefial6 la di-
rectora adjunta de la OIT para la
zona andina, la puertorriquefia
Maria Arteta, quien no concrete
las cifras en especifico.
Aunque las cifras de tra-
bajo infantil descendieron de 14
millones en 2011 a los actuales
9 millones, es menester con-
tinuar la implementaci6n de las
prdcticas para el fortalecimiento
de las political de prevenci6n y
erradicaci6n del trabajo infantil
en paises de todo el continent
americano.


"America Latina ha hecho much contra el trabajo infan-
til, pero no podemos caer en la complacencia, porque que-
da much por hacer. Estimamos que hay nueve millones
de nifias, niflos y adolescents que estan trabajando, y
estos trabajos deben ser abolidos", advirti6 Arteta. En la
actualidad, cerca de 215 millones de nifios trabajan en el
mundo, muchos de ellos a tiempo complete.

Por primera vez en Esta-

Cleveland, ha abierto al piblico
una relevant exposici6n que
ostenta el arte de la Civilizaci6n
Pre-Colombina Wari que exis-
ti6 en los Andes peruanos hace
mis de un milenio.
La exposici6n "Wari: Sefiores
del Perui Pre-Inca" que tendrl
lugar hasta el 19 de mayo ha
agrupado 150 piezas de las
diferentes expresiones artisti-
cas de la cultural Wari, gracias
a la colaboraci6n de 40 orga-

que lograron fuera possible la
exhibici6n de esta maravillosa
muestra cultural. Sin duda,
esta exposici6n constitute un
important paso para conm-

guerrera y avanhzada que
apreciaba el arte y el disefio.
namiento que nos deslumbra
con las piezas de la muestra,
no sol6 por la dimension de la
piezas sino por la perfecci6n
como fueron elaboradas. No
podemos decir menos de los
textiles, son obras de una gran
calidad y belleza inigualable,
elaborados con algod6n y lana
de cam6lidos como la vicunfia.
Sus disefios son admirados
por la perfecci6n de sus figu-
ras geometricas, y sus colors
que perduran con la misma
intensidad hasta el dia de hoy.
Por uhltimo, se puede apreciar
tambi6n ornamentos que se
utilizaron en aquella 6poca y
trabajos en piedra y otros ma-
teriales".
Acerca de los Wari
SLos Waris fueron los


primeros en desarrollar la idea
de "urbanismo o ciudades" en
el area andina. Levantaron
grandes complejos arquitec-
t6nicos, con enormes muros
que encerraban las casas, al-
macenes, calls y plazas.
En sus origenes, la etnia
Wari absorbi6 los rasgos de
la cultural Huarpa, algunos
elements de la cultural Nazca
y caracteres de la religion
Tiahuanaco.
Tuvo un alto grado de de-
sarrollo tecnol6gico, con base
tanto en la elevada producci6n
agropecuaria y ganadera, lo
cual les permiti6 expandirse
por casi todo el territorio pe-
ruano.
La capital del imperio Wari,
llamada tambien Huari, esti
situada a 25 km al noreste de
la ciudad de Ayacucho, Peri.
La estructura social y
political del estado Wari era
jerarquizada e incluia a la
elite gobemrnante, la noble-
za guerrera, funcionarios
administrativos de las dife-
rentes regions del imperio, la
clase sacerdotal, y el pueblo.
Su principal activi-
dad era de cardcter military.
Combatieron a lo largo y an-
cho del territorio peruano, con-
quistando los diversos sefiorios
de su tiempo.

Festa di San Giuseppe


In tutta Italia si festeggia
san Giuseppe il 19 marzo. Un
santo molto venerato e amato
dal mondo cattolico per la
sua semplicitA, umilt& e pa-
terna protezione.
Dello sposo di Maria sap-
piamo quel poco che ci dicono
gli evangelisti Matteo e Luca,
ma tanto basta per collocare
questo incomparabile ouomo
giustoo sul pifi alto seggio del-
la santitA, dopo quello della
Madre di GesCi.
Venerato fin dai primi sec-
oli in Oriente, il suo culto si
diffuse in Occidente solo dal
secolo IX, ma in un crescen-
do che non ha eguali in altri
santi.
Nel 1621 Gregorio XV
dichiar6 di precetto la festiv-
itA liturgica odierna; Pio IX
elesse San Giuseppe patrono
della Chiesa universal e i
papi successivi lo arricchi-
rono di altri titoli, istituendo
una second commemora-
zione, al 1 maggio, legata al
suo modesto e nobile mest-
iere di artigiano. II privilegio
di essere il padre putativo del
Messia costituisce il titolo piCi
alto accordato a un uomo.
Lo straordinario event
dell'Annunciazione e della
divina maternit& di Maria,
di cui fu avvertito dall'angelo
dopo la sofferta decision di
non ripudiare la sposa, collo-
ca San Giuseppe in una luce
di umana simpatia.
Adempie le prescrizioni
della legge: si reca a Bet-
lemme per il censimento, as-
siste Maria nel parto, acco-
glie i pastori e i re Magi con
utile disponibilit&, conduce
in salvo Maria e il Bambino
per sottrarlo al sanguinario
Erode, quindi rientra nella la-
boriosa quite della modest
casetta di Nazareth, condivi-
dendo gioie e dolori comuni


a tutti i padri di famiglia che
devono guadagnare il pane
col sudore della front.
La festa di S. Giuseppe e
molto seguita dal popolo in
Alessandria della Rocca,
sia dal punto di vista reli-
gioso, che da quello artistico-
tradizionale.I preparativi in-
iziano moltesettimane prima,
quando il Comitato, detto
della "Deputazione di San Gi-
useppe", inizia a raccogliere
le generose offerte per le vie
del paese.
Alcuni giorni prima la fes-
ta i familiar dei component
il comitato, e qualche volon-
tario che ha una "prummis-
ioni", iniziano a preparare i
numerosissimi piatti tipici
alessandrini detti: "Pietanzi".
Fra i piu noti la "pignolata", a
base di farina, uova, miele e
"li sfinci", fritti.
Ne vengono preparate in
grand quantity, visto che
verranno offerte ai numero-
sissimi visitatori dell'altare
principal, detto "l'altaru"
La domenica anteceden-
te la festa, tre person, un
tempo scelte tra i piu poveri
e bisognosi del paese, cui an-
davano vestiario e cibo, ven-
gono estratti a sorte: sono i
cosiddetti Santi, che imper-
soneranno la Madonna, lu
Bamminu e san Giuseppi per
tutta la durata della festa.
La vigilia i Santi vengo-
no accompagnati a casa del
President il Comitato per es-
sere aiutati nella vestizione;
ci si reca cosi in chiesa per la
celebrazione dei Vespri al ter-
mine del quale tutti a vedere
"lu iocu di focu" in onore del
Santo.
Caratteristica principal
della festa e l'allestimento
dell'altare principal, addob-
bato sfarzosamente e ricco
di "pietanzi", costituite prin-


cipalmente da verdure varie,
dolci, frutta e dal pane, carat-
teristico cio6 dai "vucciddra-
ti", cui vengono sistemati ra-
metti di rosmarino e "barcu".
I giorno di San Giuseppe
la tradizione alessandrina
vuole che non si mangi carne,
ma pesce ed in particolare
sarde.
Un altro piatto tipico della
festa e la cosiddetta "mila-
nisa", preparata appunto con
le sarde, finocchi e "muddri-
ca".
Oltre all'altare principal
vengono allestiti altri altari
minori da famiglie che, per
grazia ricevuta o per qualche
prummisioni a san Giuseppe
Gli dedica tre o piu santi e
persino i tredici apostoli.
In piazza, accompagnati
dalla music il Comitato rac-
coglie le ultime e pia gener-
ose offerte, rinnovando la
tradizionale "Crucera" in via
Roma e via Umberto.
I giorno di festa a mezzo-
giorno in Madrice si celebra
la Messa Solenne, sempre
alia presenza dei Santi e del
Comitato in prima fila.
Subito dopo la benedizione
degli altari i Santi iniziano a
mangiare: il tutto preceduto
dall'orazione che fa una per-
sona che "serbi li santi" e che
ad ogni piatto ripete "mancia-
ti santuzzi".
Al termine i present so-
gliono baciare a turno i piedi
dei "santi", iniziando rig-
orosamente dal Bambinello,
proseguendo con la Madonna
e per ultimo san Giuseppe,
segno questo di umilta e
venerazione.
La sera dopo la celebra-
zione della Messa la proces-
sione per le vie del paese con
la statua che raffigura San
Giuseppe e il Bambinello che
viene portata a spalla dai nu-
merosi fedeli.
La festa, allietata dalla
banda musical, si conclude
con la rituale "maschiata" al


temine della quale i "santi"
verranno riaccompagnati a
casa del Presidente per sve-
stirsi.

Not Feeling Festive at

the Festival


The Plant City Strawberry
Festival may be promoted as
a family friendly event, but it
was not friendly for my family
this year.
No, that statement does not
mean I am some sort of snob-
bish city slicker who thinks I
am above such a place.
I was not bothered by the
hundreds of facial tattoos de-
noting the tattooed individu-
als supposedly had served jail
time for murder when in fact
their biggest crime was prob-
ably making a poor choice
while trying to rebel against
mommy and daddy. After all, I
have a question mark tattooed
on my belly button; who am I
to judge?
I was not bothered by the
dozens of parents I saw wear-
ing shirts with expletive-filled
phrases ironed upon them,
my favorite being, "I f***ed my
wife with a big d**k and gave
birth to a bigger d**k." After
all, I make jokes like that on
a regular basis, my kids can-
not yet read curse words and,
well, the shirts were pretty
funny.
I was not bothered by the
parents who smoked while
carrying their babies around
and who huddled under the
shade and puffed away so that
my kids couldn't enjoy a cool
getaway from the sun with-
out inhaling some cool men-
thol fumes. While I find such
people reprehensible and at
the bottom of the food chain, I
do not believe my children will
get lung cancer from being
around second hand spoke for
a few seconds.
I was not bothered that
the festival theme on the day
we went was "Mountain Dew
Day;" an entire festival bowed
down to the almighty provider
of kidney- stones and cavi-
ties. We don't allow our kids
to drink soda, but to each his
own. Ill never be that preachy
father who looks down on oth-
ers because they raise their
kids differently than I do
mine. I give my kids chocolate
waffles for breakfast, after all.
Nor was I bothered by the
fact that the place was so
crowded that we could not
find ONE strawberry any-
where! I cannot fault a festival
for being popular.
My issue with the festival
had nothing to do with the
festival and everything to do
with my family. My family is
no longer the type that can
enjoy such an event as a fam-
ily. Usually, the Strawberry
Festival is one of our family's
most enjoyable days of the
year. However, that distinc-
tion is in the past now and it
is all my family's fault.
Prior to this year, we would
take the kids out of daycare,
VPK or kindergarten on a
weekday morning and attend
the Strawberry Festival; it
was always empty when we
attended and the kids could
jump from ride to ride with-
out a care in the world. We
also only had two kids. True,
Ben was with us at the festi-
val last year, but he was still
just a blob who slept all day.
An eight-month-old does not
count as a kid at a fair or fes-
tival; they are considered lug-
gage.
Everything changed this
year. Our oldest is in real
school. We did not feel right
pulling him out of class to go
to a festival; we felt doing so
would give him a false early
impression about the impor-
tance of school.. So we had to
take the kids on the weekend.


Our oldest then had a virus
on Saturday, which meant
we had to go on Sunday ...
the last day of the festival.
The last time Tampa Bay saw
a mob this large, Santo Traf-
ficante, Jr. was still running
the show. *rim shot*
Trying to move young kids
through a crowd that large
was nerve-wracking. It seemed
too easy for their hands to
slip away from mine and lose
them in the crowd. Plus, try-
ing to steer a stroller through
a sea of Mountain Dew'd up
festival goers was like try-
ing to steer a one-man kayak
through rock-filled rapids. No
matter how skilled you think
you are, one small slip up that
forces you to take your eyes
off the prize whether it be a
sneeze, a blink, a hot woman
so scantily clad that you can't
help but to look or a fat wom-
an so scantily clad you can't
help but to look and the
stroller could end up doubling
as a battering ram against a
crowd of people who suddenly
stopped for no reason whatso-
ever.
Making our experience
even more difficult was also
the fact that Ben is impossi-
ble. The older two kids wanted
to go on rides again and again
and again and again and so
on. Ben ... Damn.
The first ride we tried to
take Ben on was The Mer-
ry Go Round. For a kid who
comes off so tough, for a kid
who once had a double nose
bleed from a wicked fall off
the table and before the blood
could be- completely wiped
away was trying to climb back
up, for a kid who enjoys the
UFC, WWE and the NBA ... he
was a real wuss! He cried ...
and not normal "I am crying
because I am only 20 months
old and that is what I do"
crying, but "I have the fear
of God in me" crying. It was
embarrassing. It was a Merry
Go Round! Read the name of
the ride again! MERRY ... GO
.... ROUND! It had pink hor-
sies and spun around at the
breakneck speed of negative
50 miles per hour!
Obviously, he was not go-
ing to survive other rides,
so we strapped him into the
stroller while the other kids
went on rides. Taking him to a
festival with rides seems like a
rookie mistake, not a decision
seasoned parents should have
made. But in past years, the
stroller was our daughter's
fate (this was her first year go-
ing on rides) and she was fine
with it. She would sit in the
stroller all day and enjoy the
sights. But Ben is not wired
that way. He doesn't sit still ...
EVER! He was not having it!
So .this was our day one
of us stressed that the two
older kids would be lost in
the crowd as they sprinted
toward the ride lines, while
the other dealt with Ben in
all out tantrums trying to free
himself from the stroller, as
though he was The Incredible
Hulk trying to rip shackles
that chained him to a wall. In
short the dude was mad! At
first his anger made us angry.
Then, we felt bad. He was not
having fun. All he did all day
was sit in a stroller in the hot
sun while his older siblings
played on rides.
Perhaps the Strawberry
Festival is family friendly for
some. Perhaps those with old-
er kids who can fend for them-
selves or who can all go on
rides had fun. Perhaps some

Are We Making Wild Animals Less Wild?


In the North American Con-
tinent as well as in many for-
eign venues, hunters and wild
animals have experienced an
evolution. In an unprecedent-
ed zeal to achieve success,
hunters and hunt providers
have engaged in practices that
while making hunting easier,
have diminished the "wild" of
otherwise truly untamed ani-
mals. Also, the once astute,
stealthy and crafty American
hunter has become less ad-
ept at the game. Many, that
enjoy the hunt, have limited
time frames in which to do
so. Because we are a success
oriented society, the need has
arisen to facilitate the process
of a triumphant hunt. As the
affluence or the appearance of
it has increased in our soci-
ety, an intensified demand for
easily accessible, game-filled
hunting venues has devel-
oped. A relative steady supply
of places to enjoy the sport
has created new methods of
retailing hunts. Thus, entire
new ways and reasons for
hunting have come to exist.
The metamorphosis has
slowly taken place changing
hunters from seekers of wild
game meat into trophy hunt-
ers. The pervasive attitude
among most hunters with
whom we have spoken is that
the search for trophies is their
single and most significant
goal. The most impressive
antlers, or tusks, the most
striking skins and in the case
of turkeys, the longest beards
and spurs are all that mat-
ters. Meat is a secondary, or
perhaps not at all a desired
element. For some, the oohs
and aahs of those that gawk
at a wall-mounted trophy
have garnered a more impor-
tant role than a great venison
stew.
Many of the avid many
hunters that we have inter-
viewed hardly eat venison,
wild pork, squirrel, rabbit or
turkey. Although many have
hunted Africa, South America,
Canada or Alaska, few would
even venture to dine on Cape
buffalo, giraffe, wildebeest,
polar or grizzly bear, caribou
or mountain goat. Some that
have done so have chowed-
down on the exotics not to be
considered timid or worse.
In order to satisfy the de-
mand for trophy animals,
some ranchers have insti-
tuted the phenomena called
high fenced ranches. Within
these enclaves, much as we
do in raising cattle, ranchers
maintain the integrity of their
wild animal herds by selective
breeding, high protein feed-
ing, parasite control and cull-
ing of less desirable animals.
Water tanks are provided for
these so called wild animals


during drought or in areas
where water is scarce.
Predator control is also
carried out in many of these
ranches. Coyotes and wild-
cats prey on the new born
deer fawns. Foxes, raccoons
and hawks all, seek the nest
of turkey in search of eggs or
baby chicks. In places where
a single turkey or a deer can
fetch hundreds if not thou-
sands of dollars, it is impor-
tant to eliminate the non-pay-
ing hunters in order to let the
herd grow as much as pos-
sible for those that pay.
The hunts in high fence or
other ranches in the for pay
business, encourage hunt-
ers to choose certain animals
for certain prices. The largest
antlers demand the highest
prices. Those lesser endowed
animals considered by the
owners to never develop large
antlers bring a lesser price.
Exotic species, some brought
from Africa or other foreign
places, are some of the most
costly hunts. In these pay to
hunt places, hunters that
would probably never achieve
success can take home a
bragging size trophy.
Many other hunting ven-
ues in ranches not under
high fence also provide food
plots and automatic feeders to
maintain animals within their
property. Most hunters in
Florida, South Carolina and
Georgia consider these tac-
tics a necessity if a reasonable
number of animals, sufficient
to satisfy the hunters in a par-
ticular ranch are to be enticed
into the property.
No doubt, healthier ani-
mals are produced as a result
of their treatment as cattle.
But there is a negative fac-
tor involved in these practic-
es. Once totally wild animals
grow accustomed to provi-
sions of feed, planted crops,
water and the presence of hu-
mans they become more vul-
nerable to predation, In many
cases, feral hogs, considered
by most to be our wild hogs,
lie in wait, just a few feet away
from automatic feeders.
As soon as they hear the
whirling sound of the spinner
broadcasting corn or other
feed, they materialize to eat
their fill. The same scenario
applies to deer. Since auto-
matic feeders are programed
to dispense feed at specific
times, it is not unusual to ob-
serve deer and turkeys begin
to appear at the feeders a few
minutes before the dispens-
ing cycle starts. I clearly re-
member one occasion when I
observed several turkey hens
appear at a feeder before it
dispensed the feed. They were
actually looking up at the sus-
pended feeder awaiting it to go

off.
I have observed wildlife for
more than 50 years under all
types of circumstances. I have
hunted in the deep and wild
heart of the Everglades with
my old and dear friend Cecil
Bugbee. Hunting in the Na-
tional Forests or in the lands
set aside by the Game Com-
missions of various states I
have experienced the difficul-
ties of the "fair chase" hunts
where no enticement is pro-
vided to game animals other
than that provided by nature.
In these places, taking a legal
animal is extremely difficult.
In public land, deer, turkey
and wild hogs are extremely
wary, always on the alert they
disappear at the slightest per-
ceived movement or a whiff of
human odor.
I have hunted in large
tracks of land where drivers
or beaters push the animals
toward hunters. These, also
considered difficult hunts,
are considered necessary be-
cause the dense forests would
not allow hunters to easily see
game animals. In these plac-
es, animals have certainly not
lost their wild nature.
At least in the mind of this
writer, automatic feeders and
food plots do make animals
more susceptible to preda-
tion; they lose some of their
natural wild instincts. I have
observed wildcats lying in am-
bush, close to a feeder, wait-
ing to pounce on some young
fawn or poult.
Particularly in the northern
counties of Florida, where the
use of dogs to chase deer is
widely used, the dogs will eas-
ily find the scent of the deer at
feeders and track them relent-
lessly. Poachers, the scourge
of property owners are the
worst thieves of wild game.
Once they trespass into prop-
erty where feeders and food
plots are established, they will
take advantage of the absence
of owners or hunters to sneak
close to feeders and food plots
fields to kill any animal they
can.
Competition for game ani-
mals is keen. Adjacent prop-
erty owners that hunt or allow
hunting in their lands face
a dilemma. Do we plant and
feed game, understanding
it's down side?, Or, do we al-
low adjacent property owners
that do so to benefit from an
abundance of game to the det-
riment of the hunters in our
property?
The answer remains one
to be provided by each indi-
vidual hunter. One thing is
certain, neither the modern
hunter nor their prey seem to
have the same untamed "wild"
they once possessed.
BE A GOOD SPORT!

ARIES (March 21 to April
19) Congratulations, Lamb.
This is the week to finish your
project and then bask in your
well-earned approval. (And
if you like, you also can say
"bah" to all those detractors.)
TAURUS (April 20 to May
20) The bold Bovine could
find a new opportunity too
intriguing to be ignored. But
don't charge into it. Go slowly
so you see how things devel-
op as you get more involved.
GEMINI (May 21 to June
20) You might try to soften
your stand on that important
issue. A little more flexibility
actually could get you what
you're looking for. A 'new
friend enters the picture mid-
week.
CANCER (June 21 to July
22) Your inner voice is on the
mark when it advises you to
tackle that family problem
now! The sooner you're able
to come to terms with it, the
better it will be for everyone.
LEO (July 23 to August
22) Someone reveals impor-
tant news about a longtime
associate. But before you
decide how to deal with this
information, make sure it's
reliable, and not simply self-
serving.
VIRGO (August 23 to
September 22) Some inten-
sive soul-searching early in
the week can help you reach
a decision by week's end that
should please both you and
the other person involved.
Good luck.
LIBRA (September 23 to
October 22) The possibility

of a career change is intrigu-
ing. Learn more about what it
can offer and what it cannot.
Weigh everything carefully.
And ask questions.
SCORPIO (October 23 to
November 21) Work is your
priority this week as you try to
make up for lost time. Expect
help from someone who cares
about you. Things take a wel-
come turn by the weekend.
SAGITTARIUS (November
22 to December 21) A health
problem causes some anxiety
early in the week. But prompt
medical attention soon eases
everyone's concerns. Enjoy
an arts-filled weekend.
CAPRICORN (Decem-
ber 22 to January 19) As
much as you might resent it,
a changing situation could
require you to adjust your
plans accordingly. The good
news: An associate agrees to
cooperate.
AQUARIUS (January 20
to February 18) That old
problem is finally resolved,
just in time for you to take
on a new work-related proj-
ect. This one could be the su-
per door-opener you've been
looking for.
PISCES (February 19 to
March 20) The early part of
the week presents some dif-
ficult hurdles. But once you
get over them, you can start
to focus on matters that are
more important to you.
BORN THIS WEEK: You
are respected for your hones-
ty and your dedication to do-
ing the right thing, no matter
how difficult that might be.

The Tampa Port Authority and
its Deputy Port Director of Opera-
tions and Engineering, Zelko Kirin-
cich, had an odd parting. The Port
announced a separation agreement
that continues to pay Kirincich
until May 22, but doesn't allow him
on Port property. It also forces both
sides to not disparage each other.
Of course, there must be more
to this story. We're told by well-
informed members of the Port
community that the new boss, Paul
Anderson, has given the entire
Port staff an opportunity to adopt
his way of doing business. Many
thought there might be wholesale
retirements and resignations, but
most have made the transition and
are successfully on the Anderson
team. That's a good thing, because
we hear the Anderson team is about
marketing the Port.
Kirincich was having a difficult
time transitioning to the new team.
That's not surprising. Kirincich is
a very able manager of operations
who has been loyal to the Port for 17
years, but he is not known for being
the easiest guy to get along with.
The Port, under former CEO Rich-
ard Wainio, was run by operations.
It is now being run by marketing.
The number one goal is sell, sell,
sell. The handwriting was on the
wall that Kirincich should go and
find another job. I
Kirincich's transition to a new
employer could have been a quiet
affair, but the rumor is some "dis-
paraging remarks" were made
about the split and that caused this
formal separation agreement to be
written.
We are hearing good things
about the direction of the Port and
are glad that its CEO, Paul An-
derson, is open to allowing staff to
prove themselves while being un-
afraid to make necessary changes.

There has recently been some
discussion by the Hillsborough
County Aviation Authority Board
to investigate if the employment
contract of its director, Joe Lopano,
can be strengthened to make it
difficult for him to leave. Positions
are open or will soon be at Dallas-
Fort Worth, San Francisco and Los
Angeles airports. Some members of
the board hear that Lopano is being
approached.
Lopano has now run the airport
for two years and had received
praise for his abilities.


The board seems to be more than
satisfied with his performance,
along with members of the commu-
nity who are focused on the airport
as an economic engine of the Tampa
Bay area.
We believe he is an important
asset to the community and hope
he continues to serve at Tampa
International Airport.

This is the first time we have
witnessed Florida's lieutenant
governor resigning because of an
investigation. On Tuesday, Jen-
nifer Carroll resigned after being
questioned by authorities regard-
ing a racketeering probe of Allied
Veterans of the World.
The non-profit Allied Veterans
and its for-profit affiliated company
made $290 million in five years on
Internet caf6 gambling. The pro-
ceeds were supposed to benefit vet-
erans, but only one percent went to
a veteran-targeted charity, accord-
ing to Oklahoma officials. According
to reports, Allied Veterans acted
as a for-profit and paid its owner,
Chase Burns, $1.5 million. So far,
57 people have been arrested.
Carroll's public relations firm,
3N and J.C. Corporation, was
hired by Allied Veterans in 2009 or
before. Carroll reported they were
a major source of income for her
firm. According to a 2010 article in
the Florida Times- Union, she was
featured in a commercial where she
commends Allied Veterans of the
World for providing, "money to get
veterans to Veterans Administra-
tion hospitals." As a state repre-
sentative, her office filed legislation
that would have benefited the Inter-
net caf6 industry. The legislation
was withdrawn after her conflict of
interest was exposed.
Florida's ex-lieutenant governor
is up to her neck in problems, but
her misfortune might have solved
a dilemma for Governor Rick Scott.
Some Republican insiders tell us
that the governor wanted to shed
Carroll from the ticket for his 2014
run. He was looking for a post to
appoint her to avoid the appear-
ance that he was firing her. The
last thing the governor needed was
to fire the first African-American
lieutenant governor in Florida's
history. Now he gets his wish and
can pick a new running mate for the
next election.
The governor still has to face
fallout from the Carroll resignation.
He put her on the ticket when a lot
of this mess regarding Allied Veter-
ans and Carroll was already in the
spotlight. His vetting process either
didn't catch it or he didn't care.
Maybe the Scott standards were
low regarding honesty and integrity
for a lieutenant governor. Heck, the
governor's company was busted for
Medicare fraud, so what's so wrong
with a little racketeering?
*** *
Florida's Agricultural Commis-
sioner, Adam Putnam, is the holy
grail for Republicans who don't like
Governor Rick Scott and think he
can't win reelection. These GOPers
are constantly promoting, hoping
and begging Putnam to run for
governor.
We, along with other pundits,
believe Putnam is too smart to run
now and will wait until 2018.
On Wednesday, Putnam did
some things that could be taken as
shots against the governor. Does
that mean Putnam is starting to
think of Scott as an opponent?


or: \ .
Just a couple of hours after Lieu-
tenant Governor Jennifer Carroll's
resignation became public, Com-
missioner Adam Putnam sent a
press release calling for a ban on
Internet casinos and claiming a
role in the investigation of Allied
Veterans of the World. This piling
on in what could be an embarrass-
ing moment for the governor and a
fellow Republican is interesting. We
didn't get the same release from the
attorney general or the CFO.
On Wednesday, Putnam also
posted on his Facebook a congratu-
lations to the Florida Senate on
rejecting an expansion of Medicare
that the governor was supporting.
The governor might ask, with
friends like Adam Putnam, who
needs enemies?

The Greater Pinellas Demo-
cratic Club, which is the largest
Democratic club on the west coast,
celebrated its 85th anniversary
on Thursday. The club's president
and longtime leader, Harvey Mor-
genstein, also celebrated his 85th
birthday. Alex Sink was the club's
special guest and helped mark the
occasion.
This club is one of the friendliest
and most enjoyable we have attend-
ed. Harvey and his wife, Betty, do a
marvelous job rounding up speakers
and keeping the meeting flowing.
We'd love to bottle the club's magic
and send it around to other Demo-
cratic clubs around the state.

Catherine Barja will be pre-
sented the Josephine Howard Staf-
ford Memorial Award at the City
of Tampa's 17th annual Women's
History Month Celebration on
Tuesday, March 19, from 10:30 to
11:30 a.m. at the Tampa Conven-
tion Center. Ms. Barja was the
first woman elected to Tampa City
Council.

Are U.S. Customs officials play-
ing politics in the airports?
We ask the question because it
seems that Americans are subjected
to more questions and scrutiny from
customs officers when returning
from Cuba than other countries.
Elee E. Erice, public affairs officer
for Customs and Border Protection,
told us that customs officers are
supposed to screen people as part of
securing our borders. As far as she
knows, there is no policy for more
frequent, random screenings and
questioning of Americans return-
ing from one country over another.
When asked, she added customs
agents aren't given a different set
of questions to ask people based on
which country they visited.


If this is so, customs agents
aren't following policy in Miami or
Tampa airports. Almost everyone
returning from Cuba gets ques-
tioned regarding bringing back
cigars and rum. We heard and
experienced agents in Miami using
harsh tones and lecturing about
buying anything in Cuba, even if it
is legal to do so.
In our recent return from China,
we watched-customs officers as
they dealt with visitors returning
from the world's largest communist
country. We didn't see or hear any
of the questions that get leveled at
Cuba's visitors. It's illegal to bring
into this country multiple items
that infringe on copyrights and
trademarks. That means knockoff
Rolexes, Coach purses, video games
and music are as illegal to bring
back as Cohibas and Havana Club.
Customs' rules allow for one knock-
off in each category, but quantities
over that are confiscated. After
traveling with 30 people in China,
we can say that at least half of
the Americans violated the rule,
but who can resist three Rolexes
for $10 or two designer purses for
$100? Customs must know this, but
they don't ask every other person in
line if he or she has a fake designer
purse or watch. Is a knockoffPrada
not as dangerous to American de-
mocracy as a Cuban Montecristo?
So why does the Cuban visitor
get more of a hassle? We believe the
problem is very local and caused by
a few agents and supervisors who
are under the influence of some
hardline Cuban exile groups.
The problem is well-known and
some frequent Cuban visitors will
tell you to avoid the Hispanic cus-
toms officers in Miami and Tampa,
because they are more likely to
hassle you. Customs has a problem
that it should solve if Americans are
having to racially profile agents to
avoid confrontation.
Customs officers have too impor-
tant a job to be involved with petty
politics.

We were very sad to learn of the
passing of Theresa Greco, who was
one half of the iconic Greco sisters
of Ybor City, at the age of 97.
Theresa was preceded in death
by her sister, Mary. The two of
them were staples of Ybor society
and could always be seen driving
around town in their blue Dodge
Dart or having lunch at La Tropi-
cana every Friday. She will be
missed.

JA WEHARDIT "ANTE"
















Yahoo, Texting, Chavez,


Yahoo's Agenda
As someone who hasn't
worked in an office environ-
ment for more than 15 years,
I totally get the non-com-
mute, shorts-and-sandals-
informality upside of working
at home. I also get the nota-
bly public response to Yahoo
CEO Marissa Mayer's decree
banning employees working
from home. What used to be
labeled "telework" is now an-
other day not at the office for
one in 10 American workers.
The "telecommuting" trend
is grounded in enlightened
self-interest and Psych 101
applications. In short, bottom-
line results seen as by-prod-
ucts of employee autonomy,
improved morale, work-family
balance and even real estate
cost-cutting matter more
than sheer on-site face time.
It's part of the wired-world re-
ality.
But that doesn't make
Mayer a 30-something mom
and the country's youngest
Fortune 500 CEO incon-
gruously retro, wrong and
nostalgic for typing pools. It
makes her the person charged
with turning around Yahoo, a
company seen increasingly as
past its prime.
In effect, what Mayer is do-
ing is getting everybody's at-
tention. It's come-to-Jesus
time at Yahoo`Junction. And
while the office, per se, may be
overrated, there is no overrat-
ing accountability, especially
at a struggling company.
Look for Mayer to refocus
the mission, re-stoke the cul-
ture and see for herself who
stays and who goes, whether
for good or for resumed flex
time.
Testing Context
In the early going, it seems
as if some form of a texting-
while-driving-limit bill could


happen. One possible po-
litically pragmatic scenario:
Making distracted driving
a secondary offense and al-
lowing texting in hands-off,
high-tech cars. The ratio-
nale: Road-safety bills remain
touchy issues in Tallahassee.
So, why not get what you can
this year? Something is better
than nothing. Then, perhaps,
next year the compromise bill
can be revisited and maybe
toughened.
Yes, a compromise is bet-
ter than no action if those
must be the lone options.
But hands-off texting is not
attention-on driving, which
should be the goal of any leg-
islation. People will still die
unnecessarily as a result of
low-focused drivers in high-
tech cars. But not as many
as might have been the case.
What's fewer lives saved when
progress can be claimed?
Chavez Legacy
Hyperbole is more than
acceptable at funerals. In the
case of the late Venezuelan
President Hugo Chavez, he
was compared to both Jesus
Christ and Sim6n Bolivar.
And it was announced that
his body would be embalmed
and put on "eternal" display.
It was impossible, however,
to ignore the rhetorical irony
inherent at Chavez's fiery,
foot-stomping state funeral.
"Chavez lives!" declared Act-
ing President Nicolds Madu-
ro. "Mission accomplished!"
Imagine, however, what
Maduro would have said had
Chavez's 14-year legacy not
included:
-Horrific crime rates.
-Squandered oil riches.
-Decaying infrastructure.
-Twenty percent inflation
rate.
-Constitutional manipula-
tion.


Aquarium
-Narcissism embodiment.
Chavez's legacy also in-
'cludes his singular contribu-
tion to political stagecraft:
his long-running, Sunday
morning TV show, A16 Presi-
dente. It was a hodgepodge of
unscripted policy pep talks,
bully pulpit harangues, tours
and dedications of social proj-
ects. Government ministers
were required to attend. They
could be called on the carpet
about anything. Sometimes
policy was made on the spot.
Nothing was left on the edit-
ing-room floor. Personality-
cult sausage for the masses.
I saw it a few years ago
when I was in Caracas. It
came on at 11:00 a.m. on
Sunday. There was no fixed
end time. At 5 p.m., it was
still plodding on. CTTV never
looked so good.
For Chavistas, the late
president will be an impos-
sible act to follow. For fans of
Al6 Presidente, Chavez's pass-
ing has added a lot more free
time to their Sundays.
Chavez was known for
his fulminating ways when
it came to the United States.
Among his more memorable,
if revolutionarily parsed, mes-
sages: "There is no poverty in
Venezuela! Factory capitalism
is poverty!"
Doesn't it seem surreal that
Chavez once (1999) waved
to the New York Stock Ex-
change gallery at the closing
bell ceremonies?
Aquarium Debate
No telling how the down-
town Clearwater aquarium
scenario will ultimately play
out. November's referendum
vote, if favorable, will only fuel
the speculation. But there is
a critical variable in any fund-
ing proposal: Pinellas Coun-
ty's five percent bed tax.
A lot of it is generated


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.

by Clearwater more, to be
sure, than by St. Petersburg.
This tax also backs the con-
struction bonds for Tropicana
Field, which will be paid off in
two years.
And then? Any aquarium
plan would obviously factor
in this key funding source.
Frankly, a 200,000-square-
foot, Dolphin Tale-inspired
aquarium on prime, under-
utilized property in downtown
Clearwater makes more bed-
tax sense than allocating a
sizable chunk of it for a possi-
ble Trop alternative in Pinellas
County. The Rays, suffice it to
say, are not a tourist draw.
Clearwater, which longs to
escape the suffocating down-
town image of Scientology, is
a visitor magnet with world-
class beaches. A major aquar-
ium is complementary even
if understandably unwel-
comed by its Tampa counter-
part. The current, undersized
Clearwater Marine Aquarium
drew approximately 750,000
visitors last year. A new one
could double that and the
ripple effect of a visitor infu-
sion would be felt beyond
Clearwater.
But funding will remain the
key challenge. Not only is a
Pinellas-site baseball stadium
logistically and geographically
ill-advised for the best interest
of the Rays and Tampa Bay,
it's ill-suited as a sensible in-
vestment of Pinellas bed-tax
revenue beyond 2015.
Media Matters
SIt's Gasparilla Inter-
-national Film Festival time
again. The six-day event that
begins next Tuesday (March
19) will play mostly at Centro
Ybor 20 as well as Cinebistro
in Hyde Park. GIFF is also of-
ficially celebrating the 10th
anniversary of The Punisher
that filmed around Tampa
Bay. The movie's star, Thom-
as Jane, will be in attendance.
But there is a bit of a down
side. While The Punisher, an
action flick based on a Marvel
Comics series, was filmed lo-
cally, including Ybor City, it
was not particularly good. In
fact, it stunk. Worse than Cop
and a Half. But it was cool
seeing those local venues like
the Columbia Restaurant and
the Beer Can building.
Speaking of bad movies,
Spring Breakers, appar-
ently a classic druggie-gang-
bangers-meet clueless-bimbos
send-up, opens today. In case
you missed the trailer, you're
not alone. It was deemed too
explicit (in all the ways movies
can be explicit) for theaters to
show. Among those officially
offended: -mayors and police
chiefs of Pinellas beach com-
munities. No, they can't all be
Dolphin Tale.

SSILHOUETTES

by Emily Carney


David A. Straz, Jr.'s name
graces many a building: a
performing arts center, a resi-
dence hall at University of
Tampa, a zoo's hospital and
a private college's natural sci-
ence building, among others.
His name is associated with
philanthropy, but his endeav-
ors in giving back started out
small: "My folks, they were
what we'd call today probably
white-collar. My
dad was a busi-
nessman who
did very well. He
put his two sons
through school.
My mother was
an entrepreneur
herself after we
were in school.
She had sev-
eral businesses.
They were al-
ways giving back
to the commu-
nity to the extent
of their ability.
My mother was
very active in the
Salvation Army;
my dad was ac-
tive in Kiwanis
and things like
that.
"We were just
raised to give
back, even with
our allowances.
We'd get certain
amount of mon-
ey every week
from our folks
- I don't even
remember how
much it was -
but we'd have to
put some aside
for people who
weren't doing as
well as we were. "We were ju:
"It was just that was ii
something that
was ingrained in us. You do
that within your means, so
I've just always done that," he
stated matter-of-factly. Straz
is a self-made man who puts
his money where his mouth
is, leading the community by
example with his charitable
endeavors.
Straz was born and raised
in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and
got his start in banking at a
very young age. While still
a teenager, he started at the
bottom at a Wisconsin bank.
"I got my start in 1960. I
was just a gopher, runner
and sweeper. Anything they
wanted me to do, I did. I was
a trainee and then I moved
up through all the jobs in the
bank at that time," he related.
After graduating from Mar-
-quette University, he briefly
went to law school, which he
left to pursue a full-time ca-
reer in banking. "While I was
in law school, I was at the of-
ficer training program at the
bank. At that time, it was
the First Wisconsin National
Bank. It was the largest bank
in Wisconsin. I was with them
as an employee from 1960
into the summer of 1967."
In 1967, he bought his first
bank at age 25. That bank
grew into First Bank South-
east. Even during his years
in his home state, Straz dis-
played a philanthropic spirit,
particularly when it came to
education.
"I'm only involved with
things I'm passionate about.
I spent 22 years on the board
of trustees at my university,
Marquette. I served a couple
of terms as chair," he said.
"I've helped Carthage College,
which is a private liberal arts
college in Kenosha, Wiscon-
sin, where my main company
was. It's a very good, small,


liberal arts college." He is still
on Carthage's board of trust-
ees; the school's natural sci-
ence building bears his name.
By 1980, the banker was
ready for a change of scen-
ery. "I lived on Lake Geneva,
which is also in that area.. .we
had a severe winter that year.
I just decided I was going to
get out of that area of Wis-
consin and come to Florida,


avid Straz, Jr.

grained in us." Photo by Robert

because I didn't care for the
winters anymore. My family -
when my brother and I were
growing up would vacation
on the west coast of Florida
every year.
"We mostly went to Bra-
denton and sometimes to
Sarasota...quite a bit to Anna
Maria Island. I liked the west
coast of Florida.. .there were
many places in Florida I could
have relocated to. I looked
very hard at the east coast of
Florida, but we came and va-
cationed on the west coast.
I knew the west coast, liked
the west coast. So, I knew the
west coast was for me.
"I thought, 'I'm just going
to leave Wisconsin, go down
to Florida and see if I can
find a bank to buy down here
and then relocate to Florida.'
I found a bank in St. Pete
Beach that was for sale and
I bought it in 1980. I hired a
president to run the bank. I
lived nearby and was in-and-
out of there every couple of
days to see what was going
on... and that's how I got to
Florida," he said.
He acquired First Gulf
Beach Bank & Trust and
Southern Exchange Bank,
which was sold to First Na-
tional Bank of Florida. He has
arso sold his banks to larger
banks, which include Bank
of America, Fifth Third Bank
and U.S. Bank.
He developed a deep af-
fection for the Tampa com-
munity. "Besides liking the
community, you make a lot
of friends. I have a lot of very,
very good friends in Tampa. It
was friendships, I think, that
would keep one here, as op-
posed to, 'Oh, I'll go to Palm
Beach and start over.'" The
friendships I have here and
the organizations with which


I have become associated are
so wonderful. I'm very happy
here!" In typical Straz form, he
extended his love for the com-
munity into ramping up his
local charitable efforts.
In 1993, Straz founded the
David A. Straz Foundation,
with the mission of supporting
organizations in the fields of
private higher education, per-
forming arts, visual arts and
civic advance-
ment.
1 In his role as
trustee, Straz
aided organiza-
tions including
Junior League
of Tampa, Lowry
Park Zoo, Mof-
fitt Cancer Cen-
ter, the David A.
Straz, Jr. Center
for the Performing
Arts (which was
named after him
in 2009), Tampa
General Hospital
Foundation, Inc.,
Tampa Junior
League, and Uni-
versity of Tampa,
to name a few. He
is a past chair-
Sman of the Uni-
versity of Tampa.
"I gave them that
big residence hall
on North Boule-
vard, Straz Hall,"
he said.
Education re-
mained a focus
for Straz. "Ron
Vaughn [UT's
president] called
on me and was
persistent about
how good his uni-
versity was go-
something ing to become, at
Azmifia. that time. It came
from a very diffi-
cult time to where it is now. He
persisted in calling upon me
and invited me on the board
of trustees. That's quite a long
while ago. But I liked what I
saw. It fit my definition of the
mission statement. I came out
of a private school... I had pri-
vate higher education in my
blood and I liked it. I like what
private education is doing, so
that's where I gravitated."
Straz also became involved
in giving back to the medi-
cal community. "I've been on
the Tampa General Hospital
board since the day it went
private and not-for-profit...I'm
the chairman there now and
I'm very passionate about the
hospital. I want to see that it
does well. That's very impor-
tant to me." The board, under
his chairmanship, recently
appointed a new CEO, James
R. Burkhart. In addition, Straz
is on the Mayo Clinic's board.
Another facet of his life in
Tampa includes his involve-
ment with Ye Mystic Krewe
of Gasparilla. Straz joined Ye
Mystic Krewe of Gasparilla in
1996. He was its 100th king
and sat on the Krewe's throne
this past year.
"It was really wonderful. I
met a lot of wonderful people I
didn't know before," he related
with a smile. "This Gasparilla
festival is so important to our
community, we should make
sure everyone's included and
everyone's a part of it. People
from one part of the city are
just as important as people
from another part of the city.
I wanted everybody to know
that's the way it should be."
King Straz' inclusiveness ex-
tended beyond his own Krewe
to krewes across the board,
from different parts of the
community.
"I talked to as many krewes


as I possibly could. A number
of the captains and kings I
had met them at the corona-
tion balls throughout the year.
My wife and I went to them
all. I was having a party at
the Columbia in Ybor after the
Knight Parade for my board
of directors, past kings and a
whole bunch of other people
from Gasparilla, so I invited
these people I had met dur-
ing the year during the course
of these parades. I said, Why
don't you stop by, have a glass
of sangria and something to
eat with our Krewe, and meet
with our board of directors
and whatnot?' A lot of them
did. I just thought it would be
nice to include everybody, so
that's what I did."
Straz is also the honorary
consul from Tampa to Liberia
and Honduras; in these roles,
he has furthered his good
deeds overseas.
"What they need in Libe-
ria are people who can go out
and do a job manual work,
such as carpentry and auto
mechanics. There are places
where you cannot get that
type of education. There was
a school that was started be-
fore the last Liberian civil war
that was never finished out in
Sinje, in Grand Cape Mount
County. I went out there with
the president to look at this
and said, 'You know, it would
be good if we could take this
school and make this a school
to train people to do carpentry,
plumbing and auto mechan-
ics, those types of things.'
He brought his idea of en-
riching education to Liberia's
president, -Ellen Johnson
Sirleaf. "She thought that was
a good idea. I said, 'But then,
what we need to do is we need
to have it be a part of the Uni-
versity of Liberia, which is the
country's big school. It is like
the University of Florida; it is
the place. It would only be two
years to get that type of train-
ing, but we could also put
some good academics with it,
so we could get right straight
into the university. We could
have it as part of the univer-
sity.' She said, 'If you want it
as part of the university, well
get the president of the uni-
versity in and have a talk with
him.' She called him up and
he came over to her house.
"Ill never forget the night.
He came to her house; we sat
in the living room. She said
to me, Well, tell Dr. [Em-
met] Dennis what you have
in mind.' He was a dean at
Rutgers before he came to the
University of Liberia. I said,
'Dr. Dennis, I'd like to do this
school, and I'11 fund it, but I
want it to be part of the Uni-
versity of Liberia.' 'Oh,' he
said, We can't do a two-year
school as part of the Univer-
sity of Liberia.' I said, That's
what it has to be. We need to
get kids into manual training
with academics.'
"Of course, the head of the
university is the president of
the country, when you get
down to it. He asked, What
do you think, Madame Presi-
dent?' She said, 'I think it's a
great idea, because I wouldn't


have asked you to come over
here!' He said, 'Good. That's
what I1i do.' And they started
that." The school is now occu-
pied and graduates students.
"I just got back from Hon-
duras maybe a month-and-
a-half ago. I have quite a few
friends there. I'm not as active
as I am in Liberia, but the car-
dinal [Oscar Andr6s Rodriguez
Maradiaga] is a close friend
of mine. I have helped some
of his school's [the Catholic
University of Honduras] pro-
grams. I started that in 1995,
and they have 12,000 stu-
dents now."
Straz and his wife, Cath-
erine, have one daughter,
Keebler, who is a junior at
Berkeley Preparatory School.
Catherine holds her own in
the Tampa community.
"In her own right, she's
been doing things for the com-
munity. She's been active in
the community within lim-
its, because she's been very
involved in our daughter's
upbringing. She spends lots
and lots of time doing volun-
teer work at our daughter's
school, Berkeley Prep. She
started out being active in the
Junior League. She's been
on the Community Founda-
tion board. She's been on the
Lowry Park Zoo board for a
good many years." Catherine
has served as board chair for
Lowry Park Zoo.
The couple enjoys collecting
French impressionistic paint-
ings their collection includes
Monet, Renoir and Picasso,
among others and taking
in opera concerts. Straz even
mixed his love for opera with
his charitable work. "I'm pas-
sionate about the Metropoli-
tan Opera in New York, where
I serve as managing director...
it's the greatest opera compa-
ny in the world. It's important
that we keep that opera com-
pany going. It's very expensive
to keep going, but it's a fabu-
lous company and very impor-
tant for our country."
It doesn't appear that Straz,
at 70, will slow down anytime
soon, although he does enjoy
some free time. "My wife and I
will probably have to readjust
our lives as our daughter goes
to college. My wife may have
to take up golf or something
like that! I play a lot of golf
and I enjoy it. Now, I've been
able to do a little more of that.
I played three times so far this
week. Ill do a little more of
that and...have fun!
"Gasparilla has taken a tre-
mendous amount of my time
this last year probably by de-
sign, because I realized what
the. responsibilities of that po-
sition were and what it means
to the community.
"Now, I have that behind
me. I have considerably more
time to do things. Ill probably
take a little breather here for
a while; I've got another year-
and-a-half to go at the hospi-
tal as chair. Ill probably find
some other worthwhile project
and undertake that," he en-
thused.
Straz is certainly not at a
loss for finding and doing -
good works.

Kuzmick is Plant High's

Wrestler of the Year


In Context
By Doris Weatherford


Brady Kuzmick was chosen Plant High School
wrestler of the year.
SThe Plant High Senior earned the high honor during
a ceremony on March 4 at Barnacles Restaurant in
Brandon.
Brady has been accepted to attend Florida State
University. He is the son of Christine Castellano
Kuzmick and Bill Kuzmick and the grandson of Paul
and Jackie Castellano of Castellano and Pizzo fame.
We are proud of his sports and academic accomplish-
ments.


March 3 marked two im-
portant centennials, but ex-
cept for short references in
specialized news sources, it
passed largely unnoticed. Let
me tell you why the date is
significant.
Some background: presi-
dential inaugurations were
in March until 1933, when
we adopted a constitutional
amendment that moved them
to January. Communica-
tion and transportation had
improved tremendously since
the Constitution was writ-
ten, and because the Great
Depression was in its depth
at the 1932 election, voters
wanted to shorten the terms
of presidents who were oust-
ed. The amendment compact-
ed the time between elections,
in early November, and the
beginning of new administra-
tions.
But back in 1913, Wood-
row Wilson's inauguration oc-
curred in March. A Virginia
native with the manners of a
Southern gentleman, he be-
came president of Princeton
University and then governor
of New Jersey. As the son of a
Presbyterian minister, Wilson
was known for integrity and
for his strong, but not stri-
dent, crusades against cor-
ruption.
Wilson was just the second
Democrat to win since 1856,
before the Civil War. (The oth-
er was Grover Cleveland, the
only president elected to non-
consecutive terms, in 1884
and 1892.) Even so, Wilson
won the 1912 race because
Republicans split, with pro-
gressives supporting former
president Theodore Roosevelt
and conservatives trying to re-
elect incumbent William How-
ard Taft.
For the first time, all three
candidates courted women's
votes, as by 1912, women had
full voting rights in ten states,
all of them in the West. Even
in states where they could not
vote, though, many women
campaigned in this presiden-
tial election, with most sup-
porting Wilson. That he had
four daughters and no sons
doubtless was a factor in
making him more amenable
to women's civil rights than
previous presidents had been.
Feminists thus chose his
inauguration to bring pub-
lic attention to their cause.
Northern women had partici-
pated in political demonstra-
tions, especially those of labor
unions, for decades, but pa-
rading women remained taboo
in the South and Washing-


-- I L


ton remained a city that was
very much Southern in style.
No one was prepared for what
happened.
About 8,000 women assem-
bled to parade on the day pri-
or to Inauguration Day. Led
by Harriot Stanton Blatch, the
daughter of Elizabeth Cady
Stanton, several hundred had
walked the 250 miles from
New York. They held rallies
along the way, and newspa-
pers followed their route. The
Cleveland Plain Dealer pub-
lished a drawing comparing
their winter walk to George
Washington crossing the icy
Delaware. Even opponents
offered some grudging respect
for women so zealous for lib-
erty.
Thousands more joined
them in Washington, with the
organizing done by Alice Paul;
like Wilson, she was from New
Jersey, but she had worked
for Roosevelt in the campaign.
Paul was educated in Brit-
ain, and she aped Britain's
more exuberant politics, com-
plete with spontaneous street
speaking that drew heckling
crowds.
Washington police had no
experience with thousands of
marching women or with the
thousands of men who lined
the parade route to jeer at
them. Because of the long as-
sociation between alcohol and
politics in that era, more than
a few of the men had imbibed
more than a little, and some
of them saw these liberated
women as inviting physical
contact. Policemen, who had
never seen such unladylike
behavior, tended to agree.
A riot developed, and wom-
en were attacked while police
stood by. The mob scene was
so serious that later inves-
tigation cost the police chief
his job, and public sympathy
swelled for women who were
willing to take such risks for
rights. The parade was the
turning point in the struggle
for the vote. Just seven years
later, the Nineteenth Amend-
ment to the Constitution en-
franchised all women every-
where.

It's a bit trickier to put ex-
act dates on events prior to
the eighteenth century, when
the calendar was modernized,
but historians use March 3,
1513 as the day that Ponce de
Leon left Puerto Rico to search
for LaFlorida and the presum-
able Fountain of Youth. What
many people may not real-
ize, though, is that this myth
was ubiquitous: over the


centuries, natives from the
Caribbean to California told
newcomers of golden places
- somewhere else. It was a
favorite way of getting rid of
conquerors.
Ponce de Leon had been
a teenage sailor on Colum-
bus' second voyage in 1493.
He stayed in the Caribbean,
and in 1502, was fortunate
enough to marry one of the
few Spanish women there.
Leonor Bint Pedro was a na-
tive of the ancient city of Se-
villa in the Spanish province
of Castile, and their wedding
took place on the island of
Santo Domingo. Her family
was sufficiently wealthy and
venturesome to have built
an inn there. Like countless
men before and since, de Leon
improved his status via mar-
riage. Leonor Bint Pedro de
Leon, on the other hand, was
constantly pregnant and/or
nursing during the couple's
first six years: between 1502
and 1508, she bore Juana,
Isabella, Maria, and Luis.
The young family moved
to Puerto Rico ("rich port") in
1508, where Juan was the
first Spanish governor. This
job, of course, required much
time away, and Leonor prob-
ably supervised the construc-
tion of their home, which was
described as "a house...with
tall battlements, metal within
and without." She and her
children lived in this fortress
because of the reality of vio-
lence from the native Taino
tribe which did in fact at-
tack in 1511, two years before
Juan left for Florida.
Female governors, or go-
boernadores, were not un-
known in the Spanish empire,
and like other women, Le-
onor probably held down the
fort when Juan sailed away
on March 3, 1513. He com-
manded three ships and be-
lieved he was sailing for the
rumored isle of Bimini. On
board were at least two wom-
en, perhaps sisters or sisters-
in-law. Their names were
Beatrice and Juana Jimenez,
but we know little more about
them.
The 500th anniversary of
Ponce de Leon will continue
through the year. The state
has entrusted the libraries of
each county with materials
for commemoration, and we
should be able to expect more
information including on the
women. Some were on every
voyage between 1513 and fi-
nal settlement in 1565, and
they should be researched
and remembered.

OPinions To Qo
| By Joe O'Neill


We1
With the billowing of white
smoke from the chimney at
the Vatican Conclave, a new
pope, Francis I, has been se-
lected. I don't know how the
new papacy will affect the rest
of the world, but it seems like
the Catholic Church is ready
for some reworking.
I've written in the past
about how most of the people
I know who are Catholic, don't
claim to be Catholic. The say
they were raised Catholic,
which is a nice way of saying
they don't go to church any-
more.
My family has deep roots in
the Catholic Church. Through
my sister's research, I found
out that there is a pope in my
bloodline, Pope Leo XIII, on
my mother's side.
On my father's side, I be-
lieve that Pope John Paul II,
born Karol Wojtyla, was a
friend of my grandfather when
they went to college together
in Krakow, Poland.
My father and his siblings
all went to Catholic schools
in North Jersey, albeit not
always by their own choice,
and my siblings and I were
raised in the church, which
was around the corner from
my house, making my brother
and I obligatory altar boys.
Through my life, I've ques-
tioned many of the teach-
ings and rules of the Catholic
Church. I wanted to know why
women couldn't be priests.
I wanted to know why the
church was against contra-
ception. I wanted to know a lot
of things that I never got good
answers for, but my purpose


Will Holy
is not to criticize the Church,
so Il table those thoughts for
another day.
The point is that even with
the strong Catholic upbring-
ing, there was enough of a
disconnect that I drifted away
from the Church.
Being Catholic in New Jer-
sey is the norm, so I never
really knew how poorly the
rest of the "Christian World"
viewed Catholics. In Glass-
boro, New Jersey, the white
people were Catholics, the
Black people were Baptists
and the Tannenbaum and
Salter families were the only
Jewish people I was aware of.
In the south, if Florida
is the south, Catholicism
doesn't seem to have the same
stranglehold and almost every
street corner in East Tampa
has a church of a different
denomination. I found that I
heard a lot about what people
didn't like about the Catho-
lic Church, but quite often,
people would have a misun-
derstanding of a stance. This
would put me in an odd posi-
tion of defending the church
when in reality, I also had
many problems with the
Church.
But like any church, the
one you belong to becomes
your family and you don't let
other people rip on your fam-
ily, even if they're right. The
problem is that the Catho-
lic family is over 1.2 billion
strong and is wrong quite a
bit, so there's a lot of defend-
ing.
Seemingly petty rules, odd
ceremonies and men in pointy

See
hats paint a picture of some-
thing old and archaic. But the
Church is aware of its public
image problems and has even
launched an online campaign,
catholicscomehome.org, to in-
troduce the world to the kind-
er, gentler Catholic Church.
So this big Catholic fam-
ily, which accounts for one
out of every six people on the
planet, is in transition. The
new pontiff, Jorge Mario Ber-
goglio, could actually be the
way out of the darkness for
the church. This is because
he is part of a fraternity that is
almost 500 years old but has
never seen one of its members
ascend to the Vatican's altar.
He's a Jesuit.
For those uninitiated, Je-
suits are the educators of the
Catholic Church but they are
also pioneers in promoting so-
cial justice and Ecumenism
(Christian unity). The fact that
a Jesuit has been named pope
tells me that the Church may
be getting serious about its
image and also its relevance.
Will this be enough to bring
people like me back to the
church that I stopped going
to so many years ago? I don't
know, but I already feel better
about this pope than Benedict
XVI, who was about as inef-
fective as a pope could be.
Only time will tell if Fran-
cis I is the catalyst the Catho-
lic Church needs to repair its
brand, but there is hope in
the form of an old adage.
When you want something
done, you send a Jesuit.

Watering Restrictions


Tampa Oratorio Singers and

Palma Ceia Presbyterian Church

to Present Palm Sunday Concert


Effective March 13, tighter
water restrictions are in effect
in Hillsborough County. That
includes limiting lawn water-
ing to once a week.
The Southwest Florida
Water Management District's
Governing Board enacted the
tighter restrictions in Hills-
borough, Pasco and Pinellas
counties due to below normal
rainfall, reduced river levels
and increasing water supply
concerns.
The tighter restrictions ap-
ply to all residents not just
customers of public utilities -
and most water sources. That
includes private wells, and
ponds or lakes that are used
as alternate irrigation sup-
plies.
Beginning March 13, the
new schedule for watering
established lawns and land-
scaping in unincorporated
Hillsborough County, as well
as the City of Tampa, is:

5 Wednesdays
Addresses ending in 6 or
7 Thursdays
Addresses ending in 8 or
9, locations with no address,
and locations with mixed ad-
dresses (such as office com-


plexes and shopping centers)
- Friday
All watering must be done
before 8 a.m. or after 6 p.m.
Reclaimed water custom-
ers are exempt from the water
restrictions, although these
customers are encouraged to
use only what .they need.
Other highlights of the new
restrictions include:
Hand-watering Resi-
dents may hand-water plants
and shrubs, or use a drip irri-
gation system in landscaping
beds, on any day but only
before 8 a.m. or after & p.m.
New sod and landscap-
ing Days 1-30, may be wa-
tered any day, before 8 a.m.

watered three days a week
before 8 a.m. or after 6 p.m.:
even-numbered addresses on
Tuesday, Thursday and Sun-
day; odd-numbered address-
es on Monday, Wednesday
and Saturday; and common
areas, mixed addresses and
locations with no address on
Sunday, Tuesday and Friday.
An irrigation system zone
can only be watered if the new
material comprises at least 50
percent of that zone.

dents may wash vehicles once
a week, on the designated wa-
tering day for the address.

ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION
COMMISSION OF
HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY
NOTICE OF INTENT
TO ISSUE PERMIT
The Environmental Protection Com-
mission of Hillsborough County (EPC),
as delegated by the Florida Department
of Environmental Protection (DEP) gives
notice of its intent to issue air pollution
Permit No. 0570080-031-AC to Mara-
thon Petroleum Company LP, Tampa
Light Products Terminal, located at 425
South 20th Street, Tampa, FL 33605.
This construction permit authorizes the
modification of the existing fixed-cone
roof storage Tank 30-13 by installing a
bolted aluminum internal floating roof
(IFR) to the tank and changing the ser-
vice of this tank from diesel fuel oil to
denatured ethanol. VOC emissions will
be controlled by the use of a mechanical
shoe primary seal.
A Best Available Control Technology
(BACT) determination was not required.
The EPC will issue the Final permit with
the conditions of the DRAFT permit un-
less a timely petition for an administra-
tive hearing is filed pursuant to Sections
120.569 and 120.57, F.S. before the
deadline for filing a petition. The proce-
dures for petitioning for hearing are set
forth below.
A person whose substantial interests
are affected by the proposed permitting
decision may petition for an administra-
tive proceeding (hearing) under Sec-
tions 120.569 and 120.57, F.S. The
petition must contain the information set
forth below and must be filed (received)
in the Legal Department of the EPC at
3629 Queen Palm'Drive, Tampa, Florida
33619, Phone 813-627-2600, Fax 813-
627-2602. Petitions filed by the permit
applicant or any of the parties listed
below must be filed within 14 (fourteen)
days of receipt of this notice of intent.


LEGAL ADVERTISEMENT
Petitions filed by any persons other than
those entitled to written notice under Sec-
tion 120.60(3), F.S. must be filed within
14 (fourteen) days of publication of the
public notice or within 14 (fourteen) days
of receipt of this notice of intent, whichev-
er occurs first. Under Section 120.60(3),
however, any person who asked the EPC
for notice of agency action may file a peti-
tion within 14 (fourteen) days of receipt
of that notice, regardless of the date of
publication. A petitioner shall mail a copy
of the petition to the applicant at the ad-
dress indicated above, at the time of
filing. The failure of any person to file a
petition within the appropriate time pe-
riod shall constitute a waiver of that per-
son's right to request an administrative
determination (hearing) under Sections
120.569 and 120.57, F.S., or to intervene
in this proceeding and participate as a
party to it. Any subsequent intervention
will be only at the approval of the presid-
ing officer upon the filing of a motion in
compliance with Rule 28-106.205 of the
F.A.C.
A petition that disputes the material
facts on which the EPC's action is based
must contain the following information:
(a) The name and address of each
agency affected and each agency's file
or identification number if known;
(b) The name, address, and telephone
number of the petitioner, and the name,
address, and telephone number of each
petitioner's representative, if any, which
shall be the address for service purposes
during the course of the proceedings;
and an explanation of how the petition-
er's substantial interests will be affected
by the agency determination;
(c) A statement of how and when peti-
tioner received notice of the EPC action;
(d) A statement of all disputed issues of
material fact. If there are none, the peti-
tion must so indicate;
(e) A concise statement of the ultimate
facts alleged, including the specific facts
the petitioner contends warrant reversal
or modification of the EPC proposed ac-
tion;
(f) A statement of specific rules or stat-
utes the petitioner contends requires re-
versal or modification of the EPC's pro-
posed action; and
(g) A statement of the relief sought by
the petitioner, stating precisely the action
petitioner wishes the EPC to take with re-
spect to the EPC's proposed action.
A petition that does not dispute the ma-
terial facts upon which the EPC's action
is based shall state that no such facts are
in dispute and otherwise shall contain the
same information as set forth above as
required by Rule 28-106.301.
Because the administrative hearing
process is designed to formulate final
agency action, the filing of a petition
means that the EPC's final action may
be different from the position taken by
it in this notice of intent. Persons whose
substantial interests will be affected by
any such final decision of the EPC on
the application have the right to petition
to become a party to the proceeding, in
accordance with the requirements set
forth above.
Mediation under section 120.573, F.S.
is not available in this proceeding.
This action is final and effective on the
date filed with the Clerk of the EPC un-
less a petition is filed in accordance with
above. Upon the timely filing of a petition
this order will not be effective until further
order of the EPC.
Any party to this order has the right to
seek judicial review of it under Section
120.68 of the Florida Statues, by filing a
notice of appeal under rule 9.110 of the
Florida rules of Appellate Procedure with
the EPC's Legal Office at 3629 Queen
Palm Drive, Tampa, Florida 33619 and
with the clerk of the Department of En-
vironmental Protection in the Office of
General Counsel, Mail Station 35, 3900
Commonwealth Boulevard, Tallahassee,
Florida 32399-3000, and by filing a copy
of the notice of appeal accompanied by
the applicable filing fees with the appro-
priate district court of appeal. The notice
must be filed within thirty days after this
order is filed with the clerk of the Depart-
ment.
The complete project file is avail-
able for public inspection during normal
business hours, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.,
Monday through Friday, except legal
holidays, at the Environmental Protec-
tion Commission of Hillsborough County,
3629 Queen Palm Drive, Tampa, Florida
33619. The complete project file includes
the proposed Permit, the application, and
the information submitted by the respon-
sible official, exclusive of confidential
records under Section 403.111, F.S. In-
terested persons may contact Diana M.
Lee, P.E., at the above address, or call
813-627-2600, for additional informa-
tion. Any written comments filed shall be
available for public inspection. If written
comments received result in a significant
change in the proposed agency action,
the EPC shall revise the proposed permit
and require, if applicable, another Public
Notice.

ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION
COMMISSION OF
HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY

NOTICE OF INTENT
TO ISSUE PERMIT
EPC/DEP FILE NO. FLA797421
The Environmental Protection Commis-
sion of Hillsborough County (Department)
an approved Local Program of the Florida
Department of Environmental Protection
(FDEP) gives notice of its intent to issue
a permit to Cee Bee's Citrus, LLC, Mr..
William Burchenal, Jr., General Manager,
16907 Boy Scout Road, Odessa, Florida
33556 to construct and operate an indus-
trial wastewater treatment and disposal
system for a facility associated with the
washing and juicing of freshly picked
oranges. Oranges harvested from Cee
Bee's Citrus onsite grove are either pack-
aged for shipment in the packing house
or are processed in the juice house. The
wastewater is generated from the washing
of the oranges and cleaning of equipment
and other operations associated with the
juicing plant. The wastewater from the
packaging and juice house flows by grav-
ity and combines into a 1,000 gallon un-
derground storage tank. From the storage
tank, the wastewater is pumped through
a bag filter and into two 200-lb activated
carbon filters in series which discharges to
a 500 gallon holding tank. The flow from
the filters enters a 500 gallon final stor-
age tank where it is pumped to a 16,000
square foot two-zoned subsurface drain-
field. The design daily' maximum flow is
2,000 gpd with a loading rate of 0.5"/week.
The facility is located at latitude
2806'57.5" N, longitude 8236'18.5" W on
16907-Boy Scout Road, Odessa Florida
33556 in Hillsborough County.
The intent to issue and application file
are available for public inspection during
normal business hours, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00
p.m., Monday through Friday, except legal
holidays, at the Department, 3629 Queen
Palm Drive, Tampa, FL 33619.
The Department will issue the permit with
the attached conditions unless a timely
petition for an administrative hearing is
filed under Sections 120.569 and 120.57,
Florida Statutes, within fourteen days of
receipt of notice. The procedures for pe-
titioning for a hearing are set forth below.
A person whose substantial interests are
affected by the Department's proposed
permitting decision may petition for an
administrative proceeding (hearing) un-
der Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida
Statutes. The petition must contain the
information set forth below and must be
filed (received by the clerk) in the office
of the Legal Department at The Roger P.
Stewart Center, 3629 Queen Palm Drive,
Tampa, Florida 33619.
Under Rule 62-110.106(4), Florida Ad-
ministrative Code, a person may request
enlargement of the time for filing a petition
for an administrative hearing. The request
must be filed (received by the clerk) in the
office of Legal Department before the end
of the time period for filing a petition for an
administrative hearing.
Petitions filed by any persons other than
those entitled to written notice under Sec-
tion 120.60(3), Florida Statutes, must be
filed within fourteen days of publication
of the notice or within fourteen days of
receipt of the written notice, whichever oc-
curs first. Under Section 120.60(3), Florida
Statutes, however, any person who has
asked the Department for notice of agen-
cy action, may file a petition within fourteen
days of receipt of such notice, regardless
of the date of publication.
The petitioner shall mail a copy of the
petition to the applicant at the address
indicated above at the time of filing. The
failure of any person to file a petition within
fourteen days of receipt of notice shall
constitute a waiver of that person's right
to request an administrative determina-
tion (hearing) under Sections 120.569 and
120.57, Florida Statutes. Any subsequent
intervention (in a proceeding initiated by
another party) will be only at the discre-
tion of the presiding officer upon the filing
of a motion in compliance with Rule 28-
106.205, Florida Administrative Code.
A petition that disputes the material facts
on which the Department's action is based
must contain the following information:
(a) The name, address, and telephone
number of each petitioner; the name,
address, and telephone number of the
petitioner's representative, if any; the De-
partment permit identification number and
the county in which the subject matter or
activity is located;
(b) A statement of how and when each
petitioner received notice of the Depart-
ment action;
(c) A statement of how each petitioner's
substantial interests are affected by the
Department action;
(d) A statement of all disputed issues of
material fact. If there are none, the petition
must so indicate;
(e) A statement of facts that the petitioner
contends warrant reversal or modification
of the Department action;
(f) A concise statement of the ultimate
facts alleged, as well as the rules and
statutes which entitle the petitioner to re-
lief; and
(g) A statement of the relief sought by
the petitioner, stating precisely the action
that the petitioner wants the Department
to take.
Because the administrative hearing pro-
cess is designed to formulate final agency
action, the filing of a petition means that
the Department's final action may be dif-
ferent from the position taken by it in this
notice. Persons whose substantial inter-


LEGAL ADVERTISEMENT
ests will be affected by any such final deci-
sion of the Department have the right to
petition to become a party to the proceed-
ing, in accordance with the requirements
set forth above.
Mediation under Section 120.573, Florida
Statutes, is not available for this proceed-
ing.
