We hear Congresswoman Kathy
Castor will travel to Cuba in April
with the group Center for Democ-
racy in the Americas.

Senator John McCain witnessed
a woman scale the 18-foot border
wall while he was touring the
Arizona-Mexico divide. He tweeted
afterward that Border Patrol suc-
cessfully apprehended her, but the
incident is another reminder that
threats to our border security are
real.
The incident is also another
reminder that the expensive wall


is an ineffective way to secure our
border.
The incident should serve as a
warning to people who buy into
the Republican rhetoric that we
can wait until the border is secure
before we enact immigration re-
form. The border will never be fully
secure.

California Golden Bears derrotan a USF 82-78
Las California Golden Bears vencieron a las baloncestistas
de USF 82-78, en tiempo extra la noche del lunes en la segunda
vuelta del torneo de la NCAA, y asi troncharon las aspiraciones
de Tampa de clasificar para el Sweet Sixteen. El marcador fi-
nal claramente refleja el gran esfuerzo de USF por alcanzar el
triunfo. La noche comenz6 con California marcando el ritmo
del juego. Inga Orekhova fue la pieza central por las florida-
nas con 22 puntos, mientras que el trabajo de Andrea y An-
drell Smith fue igualmente provechoso para USF. A pesar de
su excelente desempefo en la cancha, la victoria se le escape

Diego Restrepo: nuevo arquero

colombo-venezolano de los Rowdies


Por Manuela Ball
El 20 de marzo, se anunci6
el fichaje del jugador vene-
zolano Diego Restrepo con el
equipo de fatbol de Tampa
Bay Rowdies. El arquero de
origen venezolano-colombia-
no, formado futbolisticamente
en Estados Unidos, sera el
nuevo defensor de la porteria
de los Rowdies.
Para tal efecto, pudimos
conversar con l61 despues de
una practica y conocer mas
profundamente sobre su vida
y trayectoria deportiva. Dis-
frute a continuaci6n de nues-
tra entrevista.
OLTienes algfin apodo?
Diego sonrie, luego respon-
de: En Colombia me decian "el
gringo" por venir de aca. Mi
hermano me dice "cabez6n",
y en Suramerica me dicen "el
gato", por mis reacciones y ve-
locidad como arquero.
Tienes tres naciona-
lidades. Hablanos sobre tus
recorridos geogrificos.
Naci en el estado Merida,
Venezuela. Mis padres son
de Colombia. A los meses de
nacido, nos mudamos a Co-
lombia y vivi alli hasta los 11
afios. Luego me mude a West
Palm Beach y luego a Miami.
Hagamos un recuento de
tu trayectoria. dA qu6 edad
empezaste a jugar?
Desde nifio, pero seria-
mente a los 14 afios, cuando
fui al program de residen-
cia de la selecci6n de Estados
Unidos en Bradenton. Es-
cogian a 40 jugadores y vivias
dos afios alli durante el pro-
ceso para ingresar al Mundial
sub-17, que fue en Per-i en el
2005, cuando tenia 16 afios.
eCuando te inicias a nivel
professional?


Cuando termine la Uni-
versidad de Virginia, a los 22
afios.
LQu6 studios universita-
rios cursaste?
Estudios Latinoamerica-
nos.
rC6mo se desarroll6 tu
vocaci6n futbolistica?
Empece como todo nifio,
jugando en un parque. Al
principio era jugador, en la
defense. Un dia se lesion6 el
arquero de mi equipo y es asi
como comienzo en el arco. Un
professor vio el potential y me
aconsej6 que me dedicara a
esto. Desde entonces empece
a centrarme como arquero.
Gracias a Dios, he llegado
hasta el nivel que estoy por
el trabajo y por la ayuda de
muchos entrenadores.
,C6mo fue la experiencia
de jugar con el America de
Cali?
Al terminal la universidad
tenia opciones en la MLS (La
Liga de futbol de Estados Uni-
dos), pero se present la opor-
tunidad de ir a una prueba
con el America de Cali. Como
fui criado en Cali, mi suefio
era jugar con un equipo de
fitbol colombiano, y que me-
jor que el America de Cali.
Todo sali6 muy bien y pude
debutar como professional con
el America. Fue una experien-
cia muy bonita.
c.C6mo debutas con
el Deportivo Tichira de
Venezuela?
Cuando termine el con-
trato tenia la opci6n de ir
para Millonarios, un equi-
po de Bogota. Y un dia mi
representante me llam6 y me
dijo que habia una oportuni-
dad para jugar a nivel inter-
nacional con una selecci6n


venezolana. Por algo naci en
Venezuela y decidi irme para
alla y estar mas cerca de la
Federaci6n. Me fue muy bien
y termine en la porteria el ul-
timo semestre.
6Con que equipo te has
sentido mais c6modo?
En Colombia el jugador
es muy chistoso y familiar,
entonces es una experiencia
muy agradable. Cada equi-
po es muy diferente y tiene
su propia personalidad. He
madurado con cada uno de
ellos y me han -tratado muy
bien en todos los equipos. Hoy
en dia siento mas confianza.
eEn cuales selecciones
has jugado en Estados Uni-
dos?
Estuve 2 afios en USF y
luego me transfer a la Univer-
sidad de Virginia. Y desde el
martes pasado, -comence con
los Rowdies.
e.Cual ha sido para ti
la diferencia entire jugar
fitbol en Suram6rica y
Norteamerica?
Lo que se extrafa m.As es la
afici6n del futbol en Surameri-
ca. Generalmente asistian en-
tre 40 a 50 reporters, entire
500 a mil personas para ver
los entrenamientos. Los es-
tadios estaban llenos con 30
mil a 35 mil personas. Eso
es lo que uno extrafia mas
como jugador; esa es la gran
motivaci6n, y eso tal vez sea
lo que mas me ha afectado al
regresar a Estados Unidos.
Cada pais tiene su estilo;
aqui el fitbol norteamericano
es mas de contact, de fisico.
Alla se juega mas con la pelo-
ta en el suelo. Por la contex-
tura de los jugadores de Esta-
dos Unidos, se utiliza mas el
pelotazo, el juego aereo. Alla,


Diego Restrepo, nuevo arquero de los Rowdies


es mas de movimiento y mAs
de pases.
e.Has ganado algin
campeonato?
Si, en el 2009 quedamos
campeones en la Universidad
de Virginia, en el torneo de
la Conferencia Atlantica y el
Campeonato Nacional de Uni-
versidades de EE.UU. Estos
fueron uno de los moments
mas bonitos de mi vida. En
Colombia, ganamos una copa
con el America de Cali.
eHas sido condecorado
como el jugador mais valioso
del afao?
Con la Universidad de Vir-


ginia, en el NCCA Tourna-
ment y en el torneo ACC. Fui
el jugador mAs valioso (MVP)
en los dos tomeos y me desta-
que como el mejor arquero del
pais.
eCuantas veces has sido
titular?
A nivel professional, en par-
tidos oficiales, unas 25 veces.
Sabemos que rompiste
un record establecido por
Tony Meola, el guardameta
titular de la selecci6n
estadounidense en los mun-
diales del 90 y 94. eQu6
significa este logro para ti?

"I love Bachata"


I love bachata" se transmitira por el canal Cinelatino
los domingos, 7 y 17 de abril, a las 11:00 p.m.


Sinopsis
Marcos es un aficionado de la
mfisica que trabaja como vende-
dor de discos en una gran tienda
de la ciudad de Santo Domingo.
Con sus amigbs Tommy, un
expert mecdnico enamorado
de la bachata, y Carlitos, joven
que atiende una libreria de su
madre y aprende chelo, becado
en el Conservatorio Nacional de
M-isica, logra former un grupo
de bachata. Juntos desarrollan
una carrn-era artistic. Pero no
faltan los conflicts y vicisitu-
des que afronta todo aquel que
procura cumplir el suefio de ser
famoso.
Acerca de la pelicula
Comedia musical domini-
cana sobre la historic de tres
hombres que intentan cumplir
el suefno de former un grupo
musical de bachata. Las vidas
de estos tres personajes se
entrelazan cuando les ilega la
oportunidad de former el an-


helando grupo musical, pero
pronto surgeon problems de
ego y discriminaci6n por parte
del lider hacia los demAs, con-
juntamente con situaciones
amorosas que tambien general
fricciones.
Realizada por Roberto Angel
Salcedo, quien tambien escri-
bi6 el gui6n, "I Love Bachata",
apuesta a la comedia por ser g&-
nero mas rentable que garantiza
llenar las salas de cine.
"Seguimos haciendo come-
dias porque es el genero que ha
demostrado ser el mas rentable
en Repiblica Dominicana. El
mercado es muy estrecho para
poder producer un genero distin-
to a la comedia", coment6.
Con un presupuesto de casi
13 millones de pesos, la pelicu-
la se basa en tres histories de
personajes que se entrelazan y
que a pesar de lo que parecia
distanciarlos logran entender el


ARIES: del 21 de marzo al
20 de abril
Desde tu pasado amoroso
puede regresar un mal mo-
mento para causar dificul-
tades en tu relaci6n actual.
No caigas en la tentaci6n de
restablecer un contact per-
sonal que te es perjudicial.
Tu situaci6n econ6mica sera
dificil dentro de un lapso muy
breve, pero pronto volverds
a una posici6n de equilibrio.
Guiate por tu intuici6n y no
hagas nada de manera apre-
surada. Asienta bien los pies
en cada paso que des.
TAURO: del 21 de abril al
20 de mayo
No te dejes atormentar por
los problems que con-
frontas en estos momen-
tos. Si algo ha salido mal,
hay que hacerlo de nuevo.
De la uinica manera que
vas a obtener reconoci-
mientos puiblicos sera tra-
bajando muy duro. Trata
de mejorar las relaciones
en tu centro de trabajo,
no caigas en discusio-
nes inutiles, escuchan-
do se aprende mas que
hablando. Piensa que de
alguna manera los acuer-
dos siempre benefician
en algo a ambas parties y
los desacuerdos siempre lu
perjudican.
GEMINIS: del 21 de
mayo al 20 de junio
No te dejes deslumbrar por
fiestas y reuniones fastuosas.
A ti te darn mas satisfaccio-
nes los encuentros intimos
y cordiales con poca gente
y en lugares no bulliciosos.
Concentra tu energia en el
present y adelanta en lo que
puedas los planes para el futu-
ro inmediato. Con perseveran-
cia obtendrds las ganancias
econ6micas que te propongas.
Recuerda que las personas que
se desviven por ser importan-
tes, muchas veces pierden la
vision de lo important que es
ser persona.
CANCER: del 21 de junio
al 22 de julio
Una de las actitudes mas
hip6critas es la de pedir a tu
pareja un receso en la relacion.
Es preferible cerrar el capitulo
de una vez por todas. El amor
no acepta matices, se ama o
no se ama. Sin embargo, a
veces hay que revitalizar la
relaci6n y para ello lo mejor
es cambiar la rutina y poner a
funcionar la imaginaci6n. Las
tensions laborales tienden a

Tu salud esta muy bien. Tu
fuerza muscular te permit
practicar exitosamente el de-

Sorprende agradablemente
a tu pareja con algo ins6lito,
algo que no espere. No dejes
tus trabajos a medias apro-

SAGITARIO: del 24

Debes tener much cau-

relaciones amorosas. No
tomes decisions precipi-

tu pareja. Antes de acceder
La a cualquier proposici6n,
convencete de que eso es
lo que realmente quieres.
Evita permanecer much
tiempo al lado de alguien muy
inestable emocionalmente

algunas personas.

No s6lo la atracci6n y la
compatibilidad sexual son
los factors para una relaci6n

Objetos o documents que

Proceso de naturalizacion


El process de naturalizaci6n,

el extranjero/solicitante de
ciudadania tenga mas de 18
afios de edad, sea resident
permanent de Estados Unidos
y haya residido en el pals de
formna continue por al menos
5 afios. El solicitante debe
saber escribir, leer y hablar
ingles y ademds demostrar
que tiene conocimientos su-
ficientes acerca del gobierno
estadounidense y de la his-
toria del pals. Por filtimo, el
solicitante debe establecer que
posee buena conduct.
Tenga en cuenta que cada
requisite es un termino legal
y de significado mis complejo
que el que normalmente se
atribuye a las palabras usadas.
Por eso, antes de proceder con
la aplicaci6n para ciudadania,
cerci6rese con un abogado
para establecer su elegibilidad
para naturalizarse.
Dependiendo de las cir-
cunstancias, pueden existir
impedimentos en algunos
casos que no permitiran que
se le apruebe la ciudadania y
hasta conlleven a la iniciaci6n
de deportaci6n.
No obstante, a las precau-
cioaes que deben tomarse en
general, la buena noticia es
que en un informed muy recien-
te de la Oficina de Estadisticas
Migratorias del Departamento
de Seguridad Interna.(DHS),

Pdgina 8/LA GACETA/Viernes, 29 de marzo de 2013


(Viene de la pigina 3)
Tony fue un icono, uno
de los mejores arqueros de la
historic. El tambien estudi6
en la Universidad de Virginia
y tenia un record que man-
tuvo por 22 afios, que era de
11 partidos consecutivos en
una temporada sin que le me-
tieran gol. Yo pude lograr 11
juegos consecutivos y 16 en la
temporada, asi que gracias a
Dios, pude romper ese record y
ojald se mantenga por muchos
anios.
LPor qu6 prefieres ser
arquero?
(Diego se rie y responded)
Porque los otros jugadores
corren much, demasiado.
Prefiero estar en el arco.
LQu6 paises has visitado
profesionalmente?
Mexico, Ecuador, Brasil,
Balgica, Alemania, Colombia,
Venezuela, Peru, entire otros.
,C6mo llegas a los Row-
dies?
Fui a una prueba con el DC
United, pero decidi no quedar-
me por varias razones. Se di6
el acercamiento con los Row-
dies. Tampa es una ciudad
que me gusta, tengo muchos
amigos en USF, y mi familiar
vive en Miami. Las condiciones
eran mejores para mi con ellos
y asi tome la decision de firmar
el contrato.
eQue significa este con-
trato para tu carrera?
Una oportunidad de poder
jugar constantemente. Se
jugardn 30 partidos al afio,
mientras que en los 2 dlti-
mos alnos apenas habiajugado
25 partidos. Poder regresar
a Suramerica con esa can-
tidad de partidos es una gran
oportunidad como professional
y uno crece como juigador con-
forme se van realizando parti-
dos.
jPor cuintas temporadas
vas a jugar con los Rowdies?
Dos. Por ahora estoy como
arquero suplente.
LCuiles son los objetivos
de los Rowdies para este
afio?
Por ahora, entiendo que
volver a ganar el campeonato.
Ganaron la copa el afio pasado.
LCuintos rivals enfren-
tarin esta temporada?
Hay 10 equipos en" nuestra
Liga: la NASL (North American
Socer League).
LQuienes son los favorites
para esta temporada?
Minnesota tiene a los mejo-
res jugadores del afio pasado.
Tambien Los Cosmos y el equi-
po de San Antonio, el cual ter-
min6 campe6n el afio pasado
en la temporada regular. Esta
vez, contest Nico Castillo,
relacionista p-dblico de los
Rowdies.
eTu desempeiio en la por-
teria el 2012 y 2013?
En los ultimos 8 partidos,
me hicieron 6 goles. Si tfu per-
mites un promedio de menos
de un gol por partido, es un
buen resultado. En el 2013


ain no hejugado.
eQue te ha hecho sobre-
salir entire otros arqueros?
Siempre me han dicho
que soy un arquero muy rI-
pido, con buena reacci6n, y
s6 manejar bien la pelota con
los pies. Tambien me ayuda la
tranquilidad y seguridad.
eQu6 es lo que mfis disfru-
tas en la cancha?
En Suramerica eran los es-
tadios llenos. Suena el him-
no, estis alli parade, miras
alrededor, y te dices: para esto
es para lo que estoy trabajando
duro en la vida; esto es lo que
quiero hacer, la vida que uno
siempre sofiaba. Puedes jugar
20, 50 partidos y siempre se te
pone la piel de gallina.
6Y qu6 te disgusta?
La privacidad es un poco
restringida y la responsabi-
lidad es grande; la presi6n de
perder es bastante fuerte.
eCudl es el secret de un
buen portero?
La tranquilidad y la confian-
za cuando se acerca el bal6n.
ZC6mo es tu entrenamien-
to diario como deportista?
Entrenamos todos los
dias, generalmente dos horas
diarias. Se dice que el entre-
namiento del arquero es el
mas fuerte porque es muy exi-
gente; corto pero muy intenso
en cuanto a repeticiones, entire
20 a 30 segundos pero traba-
jas al 200%. Es un trabajo de
velocidad, de reacciones, de
salto, de potencia. Cada dia es
diferente.
eCudl es tu meta a largo
plazo o tu sueiio como ar-
quero? rCon que equipo ju-
garias?
Primeramente, ser el me-
jor y dar lo mejor siempre y
jugar para una seleccion, sea
en Estados Unidos, Colombia
o Venezuela.' Esa es mi meta.
Ganar experiencia... Un sue-
nio: jugar en cualquier equipo
de Europa. Seria un suefio.
cQuien es Diego fuera de
las canchas?
Una persona relajada, tran-
quila, de familiar. Soy muy afor-
tunado en tener esta profesi6n,
que ademis me da much
tiempo libre. Me gusta leer y
distraerme. Me dedico comple-
tamente a esta profesi6n.
Tienes 25 afios y eres del
signo Piscis. Dicen que pis-
cis tiene una personalidad
tranquila, carifiosa, paciente
y amable. Son sensibles a los
sentimientos de los demis
y responded con simpatia y
comprensi6n. LTe identifi-
cas con esta descripci6n?
Me acabas de decir quien
soy. (Y sonrie el entrevistado)
En tu opinion, Lqu6 tan
popular se ha vuelto el fitbol
en la uiltima d6cada en Esta-
dos Unidos?
Un cambio incredible, total.
Por ejemplo, cuando llegu6
aqui hace doce o trece afios,
y vivia en West Palm Beach,
era el uinico latino en mi equi-
po. Actualmente latinos u


otras minorias etnicas somos
mayoria. La liga de aca, antes
no ilegaba a 5 mil personas
por juego y actualmente hacen
tin promedio de 20 mil perso-
nas por partido. Ha cambiado
muchisimo.
Tu vida ha sido mar-
cada por tres banderas:
Venezuela, Colombia y Esta-
dos Unidos. LEn cuAl naci6n
estfi tu coraz6n?
Depende con la selecci6n
que este jugando. Me identifico
con cada una de ellas. No me
siento tan venezolano porque
aunque naci en Venezuela,
no vivi alli sino recientemente
por un afio. Entre Colombia y
Estados Unidos, es muy dificil
decidir, porque aunque me
cri& en Colombia, Estados Uni-
dos me dio lo que soy hoy: me
ofreci6 una carrera, me ofreci6
el chance de jugar fflitbol pro-
fesional. Uno debe ser agra-
decido. Bdsicamente yo creo
que mi coraz6n esti aqui, en
Estados Unidos.
Para terminar, una tanda
de preguntas rApidas.
LE1 idolo que marc tu in-
fancia?
La 6poca de los arqueros
en Colombia: Oscar C6rdoba,
Miguel Calero, Faryd Mon-
drag6n, y Ren6 Higuita. Son
grandes arqueros que trato de
imitar y aprender de ellos.
,Un amigo en los
Rowdies?
Todos me han tratado muy
bien pero apenas los estoy
conociendo.
,;EI equipo al que nunca
irias?
Despues de haber jugado
en el America, no iria al De-
portivo Cali. Es una cuesti6n
de etica, no se puede. Pero, es
una profesi6n, y el equipo que
te ofrece un contrato, se estu-
dia la oportunidad y se decide.
,LEI mejor entrenador que
has tenido?
El professor William Libre-
ros, que me dio la oportunidad
en el America, me abri6 las
puertas y me trajo de alli para
aca.
eAlguna actividad en par-
ticular o pasatiempo?
Me gusta cocinar.
cUn suefio?
Ver a mis padres vivir lo
Smas que puedan.
Un Comentario final para
tus seguidores, y especial-
mente a los nifos.
Sofnar no es impossible;
cuando suefias las cosas se
vuelven mas claras en la vida.
Finalizamos esta entrevista
con una frase dicha por Vi-
cente del Bosque, el 7 de enero
de 2013, en su nombramiento
como mejor entrenador del
2012:
"Creo que todos los que es-
tamos en el ffutbol y sentimos
esta fascinaci6n por el, todos
queremos ganar pero estamos
obligados a defender el fudtbol,
mimarlo y a trasladar la mejor
etica y la mejor conduct per-
sonal".

A Little Work for a Big Project


On the South East Shore
of Tampa Bay, south of Bull-
frog Creek and the Kitchen es-
tuarine areas, lies the Schultz
Preserve. It consists of 120
acres zone of restored and
freshwater wetlands, artificial
reefs, transitional communi-
ties and uplands. The South
West Florida Water Manage-
ment District and Hillsbor-
ough County's Environmental
Lands Acquisition and Protec-
tion Programn purchased the
land in 1995. The preserve
is named in honor of Tampa
Bay's first Audubon wardens
and is maintained by Hillsbor-
ough County.
Most aquatic life forms
that make up the ecosystem
of Tampa Bay have their gen-
esis within the shallow waters
of estuarine waters such as
those in the Schultz Preserve.
All over the coastal regions of
the State of Florida, places
such as these are the fertile
birth places of fish as well as
nesting places for birds and
home to innumerable mol-
lusks and sea grasses. One
could say these areas are the
wombs of the Bay.
Projects such as this one'
must be constantly cared for,
maintained and augmented,
thus, the importance of the
work of The Coastal Conser-
vation Association. The CCA
has as its objective the con-
servation, promotion, and
enhancement of coastal re-
sources for the benefit and
enjoyment of the general pub-
lic. With the assistance of vol-
unteers, they have helped the
coastal waters of our Bay and
the aquatic species therein to
achieve phenomenal progress.
On April 13th from 8:30
A.M. to about noon, the CCA,


together with Tampa Bay
Watch Florida, has scheduled
a work day to continue install-
ing a series of new oyster shell
bars on the shoreline of Schul-
tz Preserve in Tampa Bay. As
always, they need volunteers.
The group will be shoveling
oyster shell into mesh bags
and then transporting the
mesh bags from the Williams
Park to Schultz Preserve and
placing the bagged oyster
shell on the shoreline.
Tampa Bay Watch will have
their two 24-foot Carolina
Skiffs to transport the shell
from the boat ramp to the
Schultz Preserve. However,
more boats are needed to ex-
pedite the project.
The CCA is asking those
that have a larger skiff and
would like to bring it to please
let them know.
Volunteers are asked to
wear closed toe shoes old
sneakers or water shoes, no
sandals or crocs, comfort-


able field clothes, hat and
sun screen. CCA will provide
gloves.
They specially need volun-
teers with boats to transport
the bagged shell from Williams
Park to Schultz Preserve.
Those that are interested
in doing something significant
for our Bay can meet at the
above time and date at Wil-
liams Park on the Alafia River
and US 41 South in Gibson-
ton. This is great opportunity
to get involved and spend a
few hours making new friends
and a great way for CCA mem-
bers to give a little back to
Tampa Bay.
CCA will cook hamburgers
and hotdogs for the crew after
the job is done.
This project is open to
everyone whether a CCA
member or not. Please call

WHAT'S HAPPENING

In Old Ybar
By Emily Carney

your mind to the possibilities
of facts you're currently not
aware of.
LEO (July 23 to August
22) Leos and Leonas run at a
hectic pace throughout much

work on that novel or paint-
ing you put aside. Your efforts
will bring a surge in your self-

generous with others, be sure
you're not overlooking your
own needs. Take time to as-
sess your situation and make
adjustments where necessary.
PISCES (February 19 to
March 20) Being applauded
for your achievement is great.

He is a former state representative,
assistant attorney general, assis-
tant state attorney and assistant
statewide prosecutor.

Tampa attorney Carl Hinson is
preparing to run for Circuit Court
Judge, Group 8. Judge Jim Arnold
currently holds the seat, but is tell-
ing friends he will retire.
Mr. Hinson has been in private
practice for many years and is a
past president of the Tampa Bay
Trial Lawyers Association.

Last week, we wrote the 2014
election season for judges had
opened. It seems we were right.
We heard another couple of names
regarding judicial races. Laura
Ward, daughter of retired Judge
Ed Ward, is talking to people of a
potential run.
Rick Terrana is currently one of
six nominees sent to the governor to
fill a vacancy in the Circuit Court.
We hear if Terrana doesn't get an
appointment to the bench before
2014, he is likely to run for the
Circuit Court Group 20 seat that
is supposed to be opened due to the
retirement of Judge Sam Pendino.

For many years, this newspaper
has supported gay rights, whether
the issue was gay marriage, gay
adoptions, fair housing, access to
partners' health care and even hate
crime legislation.
We always knew much of our
society was gay. But discrimination
and social pressure kept many in
the proverbial closet.
The rapidness of the recent
change in society's treatment and
acceptance of gays created an en-
vironment where millions are now
living openly and comfortably with
their sexual orientation. As more
gays come out, the speed of our so-
ciety's acceptance of gays increases.
We now know or run into gays
and gay couples in every walk of
life. They are employees, vendors,
customers and friends.
They are elected officials, fire-
fighters, soldiers, doctors, teachers
and even football players.
This week, we watched a PBA
bowling tournament on ESPN. The
winner was Scott Norton and his
same-sex partner was shown many
times during the game, as was the
wife of his opponent.
The acceptance of gays crossed
some invisible threshold as to make
them mainstream when a profes-
sional bowling tournament cham-
pion is openly gay. The bastion of
blue collar, beer-loving, nights-
out-without-the-wives manly men
is now ruled by a gay bowler. With
the rapid change in our society,
even a traditionalist and bowler
such as Ralph Kramden, if he were
alive and real, would embrace the
gays as a group who should be fully
integrated into American society
and law.
As we witness a monumental
shift in American society that,
in the last decade, has moved at
a pace unknown in the past, we
watch in amazement as the core
of the Republican Party refuses
to move. The Defense of Marriage
Act is in trouble with the Supreme
Court. The Republican Party's
future is also in big trouble. Being
anti-gay as a strategy to win is as
wise as Mitt Romney dumping on
47 percent of Americans as needy,
entitled, greedy victims.


The handwriting is on the wall.
Gays will continue to gain rights in
America. The number of openly-gay
people will continue to increase, as
will their economic and political
strength.
The Republicans, on a national
and even a local level, are continu-
ing to make enemies out of gays,
Hispanics, Blacks, the poor and
women. Who's left? Oh yeah, rich,
straight-acting white guys.

Check out this terrible bill. It's
called the Parent Empowerment
Act or Parent Trigger, a.k.a. HB
867, SB 862. It seems to enable pri-
vate school companies and charter
schools to snatch up troubled public
schools.
Here's how it works: When a
school receives an "F" grade, the
school district has to come up with
a "turnaround plan" and has a few
options according to state law. The
option most often used is. the dis-
trict will send in more personnel
from headquarters, bring in some
better teachers, better administra-
tion and fix the problem.
Other options are to reassign
students to other public schools,
make the school a charter school
or turn it over to an outside entity.
Districts don't like the last three,
because they're akin to giving up.
-Teaching professionals don't like
to punt. They want to improve the
school.
This bill would allow parents
to sign a petition choosing which
turnaround plan the district will
use, taking the decision out of edu-
cational professionals' hands and
putting it in the hands of a mob
of underinformed, upset parents,
where the petition with the most
names wins.
If the option chosen by parents
.is different than what the school
district decides, the decision gets
booted up to the State Board of
Education.
The bill is filled with language
about who can sign a petition, if one
parent can challenge another's sig-
nature, how a signature can be dis-
qualified, how to verify signatures
and even addresses professional
petition signature solicitors not
being allowed to pay for signatures.
All of this sounds like elections
and politics and has little to do
with education. That's because the
bill is about politics the politics
of dismantling our public schools.
Charter and corporate schools
will knock on parents' doors, prom-
ise them the world and convince
them to sign a petition to help their
kids. These same groups will go to
the Board of Education and lobby
those political appointees to take
their side. This is just another way
to privatize our public schools.
We aren't the only ones who feel
this way. LULAC, NAACP, Florida
PTA and a host of other organiza-
tions are opposed to this plan.

In a short time, Florida is build-
ing a reputation as a powerhouse
state for college basketball. It
started with the University of
Florida's (UF) two national titles
in 2006 and 2007. The reputation is
cemented as the only state in 2013
to have three teams in the Sweet
16 UF, University of Miami and
the Cinderella Florida Gulf Coast
University.

Former governor and born-again
Democrat Charlie Crist will be the


guest speaker at the Pinellas and
Hillsborough Counties Democratic
Parties' Joint Kennedy King Din-
ner Saturday, May 11. The event
at the Tampa Convention Center
will start at 6 p.m., with dinner at
7:15 p.m. Tickets are not yet on sale.
Creative Loafing writer Mitch
Perry is speculating that Crist will
announce his run for governor at
the event.

This Saturday, March 30, the
second annual Cuban Sandwich
Festival will be held in Centennial
Park in Ybor City from 10:30 a.m.
to 5:30 p.m. The event will have
approximately 20 restaurants from
around the state competing for the
best Cuban sandwich title.
The event will feature food,
cultural exhibitors and live music,
including Juan Esteban performing
his top 10 hit, "Bum, Bum, Bum."
This writer will be on site as a guest
judge doing what we do best eat-
ing and being critical.

The Hillsborough County Com-
mission will present the 2013
Ellsworth G. Simmons Good Gov-
ernment Award to Pam Iorio on
Wednesday, April 3, at 9 a.m. at
the County Center.
The Commission, which has
made some bad decisions lately,
couldn't have chosen a better recipi-
ent for this award. Pam Iorio has
made it her chief mission, whether
it was as county commissioner,
supervisor of elections, mayor or
director of the Children's Board,
to bring honesty and integrity to
government through her leadership
and vision.

The Center for International
Policy and the Alliance for Re-
sponsible Cuba Policy Foundation,
under the leadership ofAl Fox, held
a fascinating forum addressing the
need to engage Cuba.
General Counsel of Cuba Llanio
Gonzalez-Lopez opened the discus-
sion in front of approximately 150
invited guests at the Roland Man-
teiga Theater in the Cuban Club on
Saturday morning. The event was
the first time in many years that
anyone from the Cuban Interest
Section in Washington, D.C., was
allowed to visit Tampa.
He was followed by an expert
panel that addressed areas concern-
ing the environment, politics, trade,
national security, the embargo's
past and the future.
One of the more significant com-
ments on the issue of Cuba came
the night before, at a reception,
from Congresswoman Kathy Cas-
tor, who spoke more forcefully on
ending the embargo than we have


heard from her before.
She told the audience she no
longer meets people who believe
the restrictions on trade and travel
make sense. She said when she met
with President Obama in Tampa
during the campaign, she talked
to him about flights to Cuba. She
told him this is a community that
supports him, but wants change.
She also encouraged the roomful of
listeners to apply additional politi-
cal pressure to achieve change.
She finished with this quote,
which was reported on the Creative
Loafing website, "I am confident
that change is on the horizon...
we've seen improvement in the
economic situation in Cuba. We can
improve our own situation in Tam-
pa. Think about what can happen
at the Port of Tampa, ports around
the Southeast. All across America.
These are our values that we share
as Americans. Trade, travel and
the ability to have a productive dia-
logue. There's no reason any longer
that it should not move forward."

In last week's "As We Heard
It" column, the date of the Judeo
Christian Health Clinic's testi-
monial dinner was incorrectly
listed. The dinner will take place
on Thursday, April 18, at 7 p.m.,
with a reception at 6 p.m.

We have received a lot of in-
quiries and comments about our
articles on our trip to China. One
unusual comment came from attor-
ney Carlos Pazos, who was critical
of our inclusion of the price of the
trip in our writing. He said it was
so low that his wife now wants to go
to China. He doesn't like to travel
anywhere, but unaffordable is now
not an excuse.

Here are the facts on the new
North Dakota abortion laws that
are the most restrictive in the na-
tion.
No abortion is allowed once
a fetal heartbeat is detected (that
can be as early as six weeks using
a transvaginal ultrasound). Doctors
could face five years in prison for
violating this law.
It requires doctors who perform
abortions to have admitting privi-
leges at a local hospital.
A doctor may not perform an
abortion with the knowledge that
the pregnant woman is seeking one
solely on account of the sex of the
child or if the fetus has a genetic
defect.

Tampa and
If you know anything about
Tampa, you know its histori-
cal link to Cuba. Before there
was Miami, there was Tampa.
Teddy Roosevelt didn't prep
for the Spanish-American
War at the Fontainebleau.
This is where Jose Marti -
as well. as Fidel Castro came
to raise funds and conscious-
ness. Prior to the Castro-led
revolution more than 50 per-
cent of all American exports
into Havana came via the Port
of Tampa. The cruise busi-
ness meant Tampa-Havana.
If you know anything
about Florida politics, you
know the bottom-line reality.
Well-heeled, well-organized,
disproportionately-influential
Cuban-American power bro-
kers in South Florida have
been wielding de facto, for-
-eign-policy vetoes over efforts
to liberalize Cuban-American
relations since the Cold War.
In effect, how does Wash-
ington hit a reset button on
Cuban policy from the em-
bargo to unfettered travel -
when the mega swing-state
of Florida, the one most im-
pacted, hasn't been applying
political pressure to do just
that? Florida politicians -
from mayors to congressional
delegations to governors have
been routinely intimidated
* and bought off over the years.
And, yes, that still includes
U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman
Schultz, who chairs the Dem-
ocratic National Committee
and has insider status around
the White House and with cer-
tain cable-TV pundits.
If you know anything about
geopolitics, you know that
U.S. credibility and good will
have been undermined from
the United Nations to our
home hemisphere as a re-

America." It also came with
the tag line: "No Nation Was
Ever Ruined By Trade." Not
exactly subtle.
Tampa's Al Fox, the found-
er and 'president of ARCPF
and long-time crusader for
normalizing Cuban-American
relations, was the catalyst.
Frankly, we're lucky he's still
on the case, given the toll the
politics of frustration and its
practitioners can take on a
point man for a cause.
Here's this observer's take-
away:
U.S. Rep. Kathy's Cas-
tor's pep talk Friday night
underscored how far she has
come on the issue. She's no
longer a House rookie and is
in a district without determi-
native Cuban politics. She's
not intimidated by Ileana Ros-
Lehtinen or anyone named
Diaz-Balart. She knows the
implications of improved Cu-
ban-American relations for
Tampa from her effort to
help secure charter flights to
Cuba out of TIA to recognizing
key port scenarios.


And Reality
Her presentation remarks
ranged from noting changes
taking place in Cuba, includ-
ing those related to travel and
the economy, to decrying a
policy that inexplicably keeps
Cuba on America's State-
Sponsors-of-Terrorism list.
The Tampa Democrat has be-
come a player on the Cuban
issue and impressed out-of-
towners as an effective local
advocate.
Dan Whittle, senior attor-
ney and Cuba Program Direc-
tor for the Environmental De-
fense Fund, pointed out that
overlapping issues of fishing,
oil drilling, hurricane prepar-
ing and the like have created
pragmatic, although well shy
of ideal, levels of cooperation.
"There has been movement,"
noted Whittle. "Science is a
common denominator. ... I
think the embargo dies by a
thousand cuts."
No such conference would
be complete without Wayne
Smith, the former U.S. Inter-
ests Section chief in Havana
(1979-82) who is now a senior
fellow at the Center for In-
ternational Policy and an ad-
junct professor at Johns Hop-
kins University. Smith left the
government when the Reagan
Administration tightened the
screws over Cuban involve-
ment in Nicaragua's Sandini-
sta movement.
Smith hasn't exactly been
buoyed by events of the last 30
years, although he regained
a measure of optimism after
some travel-and-remittance
easing in the first Obama Ad-
ministration. "Cuba wants a
meaningful dialogue with the
U.S.," said Smith. "But there's
no sign of an energetic move
by the U.S. to improve rela-
tions with Cuba.
"The U.S. is now the only
country in the Western Hemi-


Ot*Pinions To Qo

sphere without relations with
Cuba," added Smith. "It's the
U.S. that is isolated. It's ab-
surd. Thirty years later, here
we still are. I'm crossing my
fingers and hoping that the
second Obama Administra-
tion has a more rational, sen-
sible, productive policy to-
ward Cuba."
Peter Kornbluh, au-
thor and director of the Cuba
Documentation Project for the
National Security Archives,
reminded his audience that
President Barack Obama
promised a "new chapter in
Cuban-American relations"
in his 2008 campaign. Now
"we need to remind him." It
helps, underscored Kornbluh,
that "(Secretary of State John)
Kerry understands that Cuba
is changing and so does (De-
fense Secretary) Chuck Ha-
gel."
Col. Larry Wilkerson,
former member of the National
Security Council under Presi-
dent George W. Bush and for-
mer chief of staff for Secretary
of State Colin Powell, provided
a military insight we're not
typically privy to. There are
forces "on both sides of the
Straits" who don't want rap-
prochement, he noted, mean-
ing those Cubans who still
value "animosity toward the
U.S. as a pillar of the revolu-
tion" and American hardlin-
ers including Senators John
McCain, Lindsey Graham and
Ted Cruz plus Congresswom-
an Wasserman Schultz.
"The Pentagon has abso-
lutely no inclination in con-
sidering Cuba a threat to the
U.S," stated Wilkerson. "Quite
the opposite. It thinks our pol-
icy is preposterously stupid.
Hell, they're not sponsoring
revolution. They're sponsor-
ing health care." Cuba, added
Wilkerson, a Republican who
said he voted twice for Obama,
should be our counter-terror-
ism partner in the Caribbean.
"We're becoming a pariah
in our own hemisphere," he
said. "I hear from hemispheric
sources: 'First step is to lift
the embargo.' We really need
to get our foreign policy in
shape. I've seen so little moral
courage."
Ironically, Wilkerson
knows something about mor-
al courage. He acknowledged
his own deficit when he was in
the Bush White House (2003-
04). He should have resigned,
he admitted, rather than
help enable an "illegal war" of
"choice."
Well give the last word to
Al Fox, who continues to fight
the good fight and refuses to
give up despite decades of
politically emotional ebb and
flow and progress measured
in increments.
What will it take, includ-
ing Castro brothers' mortal-
ity, to get rid of the embargo
and open up Cuban travel
for all Americans? In short:
"Money." It still talks. It still
leverages. The vendetta-agen-
da crowd in South Florida,
especially, is better financed,
motivated and organized than
their counterparts, for whom
Cuba is still a secondary, if

Money, explained Fox, is
not a "bribe." It's a way "to
show commitment." And the
side perceived as less commit-
ted is the side ignored.
Some things never change
in politics. Even when it con-
cerns the economic, geopoliti-
cal and humanitarian crucible
that is America's counterpro-
ductive, abnormal relation-
ship with Cuba.
You Go, Mayor Bob
Good venue choice by May-
or Bob Buckhorn for his State
of the City presentation. The
vacant Kress building is his-
toric and awaits a reincar-
nation not unlike the ongo-
ing conversion of the Federal
Courthouse to a downtown
boutique hotel. "The Kress
building is next," exhorted
Buckhorn. "It's part of Tam-
pa's history, but more impor-
tantly, it's part of Tampa's fu-
ture."
Targeting Gun Violence
New York's billionaire May-
or Michael Bloomberg has
the wherewithal to bankroll a
national TV advertising cam-
paign on ways to curb gun
violence. It's being done in the
name of Mayors Against Illegal
Guns and aims to influence
senators in states that ap-
pear to be divided on gun con-
trol. The focus: background
checks. Not mentioned: the
assault weapons ban once
sought by the White House.
The reason: An assault weap-
ons ban is no longer consid-
ered politically doable.
Left unsaid: Not even
Bloomberg's bucks can buy a
viable appeal to ban weapons
that no one outside a SWAT
team or military should own.
Nobody. Sobering. And outra-
geous.
Instead, the focus is on the
presumably achievable goal of
universal background checks.
Of course, that's better than
nothing, since there are no
background checks online
or at gun shows. But it's il-
lustrative to look at the New-
town massacre for context.
Mrs. Nancy Lanza, whose pri-
vate arsenal enabled her son,
Adam, to slaughter 26 people
at Sandy Hook Elementary,
would have passed any back-
ground check.
Sports Shorts
It sounds cliched to talk
about "March Madness" and
"Cinderella" candidates. But
it's what makes the NCAA
basketball tournament worth
watching for so many of us.
Florida Gulf Coast Universi-
ty in Fort Myers has to be the
ultimate Cinderella. It opened
in 1997 and only began play-
ing at the Division I level last
year. Five of its home games
drew less than 1,000 fans.
Now the Eagles are the first 15
seed ever to make the "Sweet
16."

lar season it lost to Lipscomb

\SILHOUETTES

by Emily Carney


Florida's Statewide Prose-
cutor, Nick Cox, has a curious
pastime when he's not at work:
"My wife and I have invested
in little coin laundromats.
You know that one around the
corner there?" he enthused.
"That's mine! We got into one
of them around eight or nine
years ago. We were just look-
ing for something to do... and
it became a hobby of mine. I
really enjoy it and now we own
several of them."
Nick Cox is a
man who knows
something about
keeping laundry
clean and keep-
ing the state's
streets clean of
drugs and vio-
lence. During the
past two years,
he has gone after
Florida's gangs
and prescription
pill mills. "We've
significantly re-
duced a deadly
trend," he stated
with pride.
Cox's legal ca-
reer was born
from humble be-
ginnings in Lutz.
His mother, Mary
Jo, was a mail
carrier; his father,
Nick, was a truck
driver. His parents
wanted the best
for their only son.
With their earn-
ings, they sent
young Nick to Je-
suit High School.
"My uncles had
gone to Jesuit and
ever since I was a
baby, my- parents
said, You're go- "Ther
ing to be a Jesuit enforce
boy.' I graduated th
in 1981. I'm a very
proud Jesuit guy; my son,
in fact, is a sophomore there
now," he said. Cox attended
the University of South Flori-
da, earning a B.A. in political
science.
His parents worked hard
to ensure Nick received a
first-class education. "When
I graduated from Jesuit, my
mom got me a job as a part-
time mail carrier; I carried
mail on Saturdays. Within
four or five months, I par-
layed that into a full-time job.
A 19-year-old kid working for
the Post Office talk about
lucky! I lived at home, worked
my way through college and
saved enough money to go to
law school. I graduated from
law school with no loans. I ran
out of money my last semester
in law school, but my father
was so proud of me, he said,
I got you, son.' He took care
of it."
Cox received his legal edu-
cation at Washburn University
in Topeka, Kansas, following a
fraternity friend. However, he
soon realized his passion for
prosecuting.
"I got an internship with a
public prosecutor, and I was
hooked. It was with a guy
named James Lusk in Osage
County, Kansas. This was
a county of about 25,000 to
30,000 people, a little Kansas
county. He prosecuted cattle
wrestling, noxious weeds -
which, in a wheat state, go
crazy in your fields along
with DUIs and stuff. But I just
got completely hooked and I
loved it. I decided at that point
I absolutely wanted to pros-
ecute and it stuck.
"The thing with criminal
law is that it's exciting it
moves quickly. You have a
constitutional right to speedy


trials. It's real this is real
life. You're dealing with hu-
man lives. You really can have
an impact. That's why I loved
my job at the Department, of
Children and Families [DCF]
so much, because you really
have an impact on people.
What hooked me there was it
was exciting. I like people. I
had an affinity with the judg-
es, the cops, the lawyers and
the community. I really en-

Nick Cox


e s always going to oe a neea r
ent...but hopefully you can get
ere who will do the right thing
joyed that."
Cox moved back to Florida
right after graduating to be
with his family: "I was their
baby boy and the sun rose
and set on me. I wanted to get
right back to that." He soon
was working with Bill James
at the Hillsborough County
State Attorney's Office as an
assistant state prosecutor.
"All I wanted to do is pros-
ecute," he related. The young
prosecutor's eyes were soon
opened up to justice, Hillsbor-
ough County-style.
"I will tell you, coming from
Osage County, Kansas to
Tampa, Florida, the case loads
were shocking. I went from
case loads of a couple dozen to
hundreds," he reported. "But
what surprised me overall
was that I loved it so much."
He worked at the office until
November 1997, when he left
to work for Judge Harry Lee
Coe. Soon, he was working at
the Attorney General's Office
under Bob Butterworth, who
Cox described as, "...A hero,
in my eyes. I love and adore
that man...he's phenomenal.
"Once I got over there and
met General Butterworth,
things just started changing
and it opened up so many
doors for me. I got into eco-
nomic crimes, which is con-
sumer protection; I got into
civil rights issues. I got into
Medicaid fraud issues. I con-
tinued to prosecute as a spe-
cial statewide prosecutor. I
just was doing all kinds of
things with DCF and other
agencies. It was just fabulous,
the amount of experience I got
with General Butterworth and
the lessons I learned from the
guy. Working for Butterworth,
both there and at DCF, really
did emphasize for me no mat-


ter your position, we work for
the people. We answer to the
people. I really grew an appre-
ciation for being open." This
openness would come in han-
dy during Cox's time at DCF.
During his time with But-
terworth's office, he saw a
case that forever changed how
he viewed family law. "The
one thing that got me was the
second case I handled when
I was in that division. I was
reading the prob-
able cause affida-
vit to Judge [Clau-
dia] Isom .and I'm
explaining how
the father who
is sitting across
from me in a jail
suit, because he
was arrested for
aggravated child
abuse grabbed
this little girl who
was about 18- to
20-months old.
She had the te-
merity of spilling
peas and he felt
the need to slap
her. He slapped
her across the
face and it caused
bruising. The
child was injured
and taken into
custody.
"She had a
crack to her orbit-
al socket because
of the slap. As I'm
reading this, the
back doors of the
courtroom come
open. The guard-
ian ad litem, who
has already been
appointed, was
wheeling the child
wor law in a stroller. She's
L people in a little girl, cute as
she can be. The
whole side of her
face was purple already," he
recounted, his voice becoming
emotional.
"You ever see those little
goldfish crackers? She had
some of those little crackers in
a sandwich bag and was eat-
ing them. She looked up and
saw him. Her first reaction
was she threw her hands up,
threw the crackers they flew
around the courtroom and
she yelled, 'Daddy!' Despite all
of that, that was still daddy.
It made you want to beat the
living heck out of this guy, but
-it gave me an appreciation I'd
use later at DCF for a bond
that really exists between a
child and his or her parent.
He caved in her face, but that
was still her daddy. That was
probably the thing that made
the biggest impact on me, not
just professionally, but per-
sonally."
After briefly working for a
private law firm and teaching
at Stetson, Cox's experience
made him a front-runner to
lead the west coast region of
DCF. "I really and truly missed
government practice. Butter-
worth happened to have been
appointed by Governor Char-
lie Crist as secretary of DCF.
Butterworth called me at one
point and said, `I want you to
come over to DCF," he related.
Cox saw devastation in this
role, but was quick to add,
"You can do something about
the devastation.
"When we got into DCF, we
could do nothing but good.
The agency was struggling.
It was a troubled agency. It
was easy, though, because
I followed the lead of Butter-
worth and George [Sheldon,
former DCF head]. It just kind
of came naturally. A lot of the
time, the right thing to do in


Page 14/LA GACETA/Friday, March 29,2013


that job isn't that hard...it just
takes a little bit of guts. When
people tell you, You can't do
that, Nick, because we don't
have the money,' your re-
sponse is and it feels great to
say it Who cares about the
money? Well figure that out
later. This family is in crisis.'
Cox emphasized the pre-
ventative nature of DCF's in-
terventions. "It's easy to take
a kid from his or her family
to be safe now and rescue the
kid. It's a bigger thing to say,
'I took this kid, got him safe,
but worked with mom and
dad to make them better par-
ents, keeping that family unit
together.' It goes back to the
child who threw her goldfish
in court that bond is there,
no matter what. You have to
respect that you absolutely
have to respect that."
He also set upon to, once
again, be the "clean-up" man
this time, cleaning up DCF's
public image. His goal for the
agency was in part to estab-
lish transparency.
"I have no question we
helped to change DCF's im-
age and I say that with a lot
of pride. The first thing we did
was we opened that agency
up. Historically, whenever
there would be a tragedy, such
as a child dying in care, DCF
would do what I call 'turtle-ing
up'- 'We have no comment.'
That's the dumbest thing to
do in the world.
"It goes back to who we
answer to the people. The
people have a right to know
whether their government is
working right or not. I think
the biggest thing we did there
and I feel a lot of pride, be-
cause I took a very active role
in it was to open the agency
up and become accountable
to the people, the media and
the press."
In 2010, an old friend, Pam
Bondi, was about to ascend to
the Attorney General's Office.
One of the first people she
called upon was Cox. "Pam
Bondi knows me really well
and knows what kind of pros-
ecutor I am. One of the guys
in her transition team was
named Rob Shimberg, who
is an attorney here in Tampa
his brother is the city at-
torney. Rob was on her tran-
sition team and had worked
at the State Attorney's office
for a time. He called me and
said, 'Nick, you'd be a great
statewide prosecutor.' I said,
'Rob, I can't move to Tallahas-
see. My family's here, my kids
go to school here and my wife
practices law here. I've got
businesses here. I can't leave
Tampa."' Nick and his wife,
Karen, who is an attorney at
Bush Ross P.A., have three
children, Lindsey, Rachel and
Nick.
"Rob suggested it. I said,
'If I could do it locally, I'd re-
ally be interested in applying
for it.' He called me later and
said, Yeah, you really need
to do this.'" After undergoing
a selection process, Cox was
sworn in as statewide pros-
ecutor in January 2011. He
swiftly extended his clean-up
efforts to some of Florida's
most pervasive criminal is-
sues pill mills and gangs.


"Our number one issue
since I've come in and contin-
ues to be pills," he reported.
"Pam Bondi has singlehand-
edly made this a big issue in
Florida. I had been learning
about pills at DCF and saw
the devastating effect it had
on families, mainly parents
who were hooked on pills and
what it would result in with
kids. Families were being split
apart. When Pam said to me,
'Pills,' I agreed wholeheart-
edly. Statewide was created to
attack multi-circuit issues."
His role requires him, by law,
to go after multi-circuit crimi-
nal organizations.
In 2011, Florida had 90 of
the country's top 100 purchas-
ers of the prescription opiate,
Oxycodone, and 53 out of the
top 100 prescribing pharma-
cies. In one year, that num-
ber dropped to 13 purchasers
and 19 pharmacies. In addi-
tion, there was a 42 percent
increase in prosecutions of
drug-related crimes. Nearly
half-a-million pills have been
taken off the streets; 2,150 ar-
rests were made, including 34
doctors. Deaths by prescrip-
tion drug-related overdoses
dropped eight percent.
Cox emphasized, "That is
still our top priority, but it has
been greatly reduced. We've
also been using racketeering
statutes to attack gangs...by
using the racketeering [RICO]
statute, you really cut the
head off the snake. When you
cut the head off the snake, the
gang really falls apart." Since
Cox's time in office, 13 gang-
related cases have been pros-
ecuted and 172 defendants
have been charged. One hun-
dred and nineteen defendants
have been convicted, taking
organized crime further away
from Florida's streets.
Cox hopes to stay in his
role in the future. "If Attor-
ney General Bondi will have
me, I'd love to stay...it's a
great job," he said, smiling.
When he's not working, Cox
enjoys many diversions. "I'm
a major-league football fan -
my son plays at Jesuit. Quite
honestly, right now, I would
say most of my spare time is
at my house doing yard work
or landscaping I've always
enjoyed that. That's a mental
health break for me, as are my
laundromats. Ill spend four to
six hours a week just doing
things at my laundromats and
love every minute of it."
In this role, Cox gives back
to the community he and his
wife are involved in the Laun-
dry Love Project, which helps
wash linens and laundry for
low-income families.
Cox counts cleaning laun-
dry as a hobby but cleaning
up the state's streets is his all-
abiding passion.
He added, "There's always
going to be a need for law en-
forcement and there's always
going to be a need for people
like me. But hopefully you can
get people in there who will do
the right thing. I hope that I
am helpful with it. I say I'm not
an idealist, but I am...I was an
only child and I've been very
fortunate in my time. I like the
idea that I'm feeling like I'm
doing something good."

I am grateful to Alex Sink for
many things, the most recent
being a small luncheon she
held to introduce a new book
on Florida. She's exceptionally
aware of who should network
with whom, and she makes
those opportunities possible.
Alex cares enough about the
personal lives of others that
she even left her home un-
locked so that my Girl Scouts
could use it for an after-school
lesson about Lake Thonoto-
sassa and she remembered
that detail on the day she was
elected as Florida's CFO.
The lunch was for Finding
Florida: The True History of the
Sunshine State. Its author is
T.D. Allman, and its publish-
er is New York's prestigious
Atlantic, which has been in
the business for more than a
century. T.D., who was born
here, now has homes in New
York and Miami Beach. After
graduating from Harvard, he
joined the Peace Corps and
later earned a doctorate at
England's Oxford University.
He has traveled the world
as a journalist and written
about much of it, including
books on France, Spain, and
especially Southeast Asia dur-
ing the Vietnam'War. Respect-
ed magazines from National
Geographic to the New Yorker
have published his articles.
He's particularly known for ex-
posing the CIA's secret war in
Laos.
Now a senior citizen, he
dressed for the lunch in a
South Beach t-shirt, covered
by suspenders and a jacket.
He's very friendly and took an
interest in each of the guests,
insisting on getting everyone's
contact info but on a yellow
legal pad, not an electronic de-
vice. He's so much less than
pushy about promotion that
he forgot to bring copies of
the new work. He was there
to preach the gospel, the gos-
pel of saving the planet and
particularly Florida before
it's gone.
Atlantic also published his
Miami: City of the Future- back
in 1987, at the end of Bob
Graham's administration and


a time when Florida's future
arguably looked more progres-
sive than it has turned out to
be. Finding Florida is a not a
sunny story. Published to co-
incide with the 500th anniver-
sary of Juan Ponce de Leon's
voyage, it begins by emphasiz-
ing our unique geography and
native peoples and moves
on to show how powerful men
have exploited both ever since.
T.D. intends this thesis to ap-
ply to contemporary culture
throughout America.
The book won starred sta-
tus in Kirkus Reviews, one of
the publishing world's most
prestigious institutions, as
well as praise from the usually
conservative Wall Street Jour-
nal. Yet largely because of its
attacks on Florida's long line
of exploiters, some Floridians
find it controversial.
Canter Brown, former
historian-in-residence at the
Tampa Bay History Center,
considers such controversy
to be a good thing. He wrote:
"Finding Florida is provocative
to the point of daring. Thomas
Jefferson claimed a little revo-
lution was needed about every
twenty years. Florida and its
historiography is long overdue
for one."

That's true, and especially
true about the continued ex-
clusion of the half of the popu-
lation who are born female.
But it's also true of most state
histories, even states that are
small and homogenous com-
pared with ours. Almost all
states need a new version of
their history, written to ap-
peal to today's multi-cultured
young people.
Thanks to wonderful re-
sources at the USF Library, I
perused literally thousands
of state histories for A His-
tory of Women in the United
States: State-by-State Refer-
ence. Scholastic/Grolier pub-
lished it, and working on this
four-volume, 1626-page tome
was the primary reason why I
couldn't do as much as I want-
ed for Bill McBride's guberna-
torial campaign.
Instead, I was at the library,


203, a Ae
O-oenisac fsivlat si


ADV -ORIS

81*28391


going through the indexes of
at least a hundred books on
each state, seeking references
to women. That's a key way
to grasp how progressive a
writer is, and as Canter says,
to determine how overdue for
change the state's historiogra-
phy is.
It varies a good deal, and
the most important factor
probably is the progressive-
ness of its academic press.
The University of Oklahoma,
for example, publishes very
good research on American
Indians while the University
of Montana ignores its natives
to instead maintain the "color-
ful character" style of history,
spinning undocumented yarns
about the state's old timers.
So where does Florida fall on
this stale? Somewhere in the
middle, I think but T.D. All-
man frankly thinks that most
books on Florida history stink.
He certainly did his research:
almost a hundred of his 556-
page book are appendices,
and the annotated bibliogra-
phy includes even films that
are based in_ Florida, as well
as both fiction and non-fiction
books. He doesn't hold back
on his opinions: he dismisses
the most famous book by the
state's most famous historian,
UF's Michael Gannon, as "the
usual hodgepodge."
But Gannon's New His-
tory of Florida was published
in 1996, and perhaps now,
almost two decades later, he
might write more inclusive-
ly. Especially in the South,
younger scholars recently
have made a sea change in the
way that history is presented.
They search out overlooked
sources, particularly those of
women and racial minorities,
and they use objective data to
draw new conclusions. They
are creating insightful ways of
looking at the past which, of
course, is our only real guide
to the future.
So in addition to Allman's
work, there's a great deal of in-
teresting reading you could do
to put your Florida in perspec-
tive. One of the earliest local
truth-tellers is USF's Robert
Ingalls, Urban Vigilantes in
the New South" Tampa, 1882-
1936. When I'm waiting for a
red light at Armenia and Ken-
nedy, I often think of a night in
1910, when this was a desert-
ed area, and two Italian men
were hanged from a nearby
tree for their alleged socialism.
The title of A Rogue's Para-
dise: Crime and Punishment in
Antebellum Florida conveys the
intention of author James Mi-
chael Denham. Mike teaches
at Florida Southern in Lake-
land, and he does not gloss
over the hard facts of crime,
including crimes by sheriffs.

ers whose Brevard County
home was bombed on Christ-
mas 1951.
Those three books were
published out of state and
before 2000, but the Univer-
sity Press of Florida, based in
Gainesville, has issued some
important new history since
then. Among them is Su-
san Greenbaum's More Than
Black: Afro-Cubans in Tampa,
which explores the struggles
of our Spanish-speaking black
immigrants. Larry Rivers did
an immense amount of re-
search for Slavery in Florida:
Territorial Days to Emancipa-
tion, using census records
and legal documents to un-
cover the uncelebrated lives
of slaves. Anna Madgigine Jai
Kingsley is Daniel Schafer's
shocking true story of an Afri-
can woman brought as a slave
to Jacksonville and how she
became a slave owner herself.
In our own times, former
lieutenant governor Buddy
MacKay joined with local au-
thor Rick Edmonds to write
How Florida Happened. It's an
excellent reflection on Buddy's
days as a "Doghouse Demo-
crat" and his lifelong attempts
to unite us and to make Flor-
ida "not a crowd, but a com-
munity."

Based in part on her own fam-
ily, the book is Dream State:
Eight Generations of Swamp
Lawyers, Conquistadors, Con-

Wildlife. "Dream" also is part
of the title of Land of Sunshine,
State of Dreams by my friend
Gary Mormino. After decades
of work and dozens of publica-
tions, he is increasingly seen
as the go-to guy on Florida.
Richard Mathews, pub-
lisher at our own University

fine books. Among them are
the memoirs of NAACP pioneer
Bob Saunders, a photo history
of Tampa's black community
by Rowena Brady, and my own
Real Women of Tampa and Hill-

commissioned by the Athena

is sold out.
Pineapple Press, a commer-

publishes other good reads,
including Florida-based fiction
and non-historical aspects of
our state.
So there is a lot you can do
to "find Florida." Youll want
to put post-it notes on many

Roosters and chickens
have become part of the fab-
ric that weaves Ybor City to-
gether.
I am not of fan of Ybor's
fowl unless they are on a
sandwich, but we cohabitate
the same living area and I
have no choice but to accept
them.
Tourists travel to Ybor to
see these chickens and their
offspring from areas as far
east as 34th Street and as far
south as Channelside Drive.
The added business to Ybor is
welcome, even if the feathered
invaders are not.
My beef with the roosters
and chickens comes from re-
peatedly being woken up by
crowing roosters at all Hours
of the night. Contrary to pop-
ular belief, roosters can crow
at any time of day or flight,
they are just more noticeable
in the morning as the sounds
of the day have not yet pol-
luted the atmosphere.
Another problem with the
chickens and roosters is the
mess they make in regard to
landscaping. They dig holes,
scatter mulch and turn our
beautified areas into chicken
scratch.
Recently, it seemed that
the chickens went the way of
the Dodo, as they were neither
visible nor audible.
That all changed this week.
Populating Ybor, are the
cutest bunch of little chicks
you ever saw. They're like lit-
tle yellow fuzz balls with legs.
This new crop of chicks has"
to be the largest population of
chickens to be birthed into
Ybor, but the thinning of the
crowd may not be far away as


there is a darker side to the
chicken infestation.
People will tout the Ybor
chickens as part of an ecosys-
tem and are willing to turn the
other cheek when it comes to
the annoyances of the birds.
They would be correct that the
chickens are part of the eco-
system. As prey, that is.
Ybor is home to another
animal of the avian variety.
Hawks.
As anyone who has wit-
nessed the abduction of a
chicken by a hawk will tell
you; it is quite a site. Horri-
fied visitors to the Historic
District have, on occasion,
been minding their own busi-
ness and taken a moment to
appreciate the fine plumage
of our chickens, only to see a
motivated hawk swoop down
and confiscate two talons full
of the day's lunch.
Surely a teaching moment
for a parent to his or her child,
albeit an unexpected one.
With the unmitigated
growth of the population of the
chickens of Ybor, our proud
Spanish quarter may become
an aerial Boston Market.
Another aspect of so many
chickens is the unchecked
population of roosters.
Roosters are not only vocal;
they are vicious. I witnessed
this firsthand on Wednesday
morning during my daily com-
mute to La Gaceta.
Normally, if there is a
rooster in the path of my
car, a honk of the horn will
force it to vacate the road. On
Wednesday morning, there
were two roosters crossing
the street together, only they
weren't progressing towards


one side or the other.
It was a full-on cock fight.
Having never witnessed a
cock fight in person, I was cu-
rious how it would turn out. I
will call the roosters Cock-a-
doodle-one and Cock-a-doo-
dle-two.
Then again, I think I'l just
go with R-1 and R-2.
R-1 was an imposing fig-
ure. His neck feathers were
flared out and he was on the
attack. R-2 was not much of
a fighter and seemed to sub-
mit. This did not matter to
R-1 as he continuously and
mercilessly jumped on top of
R-2 until he was cowered into
a ball.
R-1 then proceeded to pull
the neck of R-2 apart with his
beak until he was a bloody,
lifeless mess in the middle of
20th Street.
I'm not sure what trans-
pired to invoke such wrath,
but it was powerful.
I began thinking about the
growing population of chick-
ens and roosters and won-
dered if this would become a
growing trend.
Roosters dueling it out in
the middle of the street might
be the last remnants of the
chaos of turn-of-the-century
Ybor.
Perhaps it's poetic, but it is
also horrifying to watch.
I don't know what the fu-
ture of the Ybor chickens and
roosters will be, but I can as-
sure you that if we don't do
something to cull the herd,
the roosters and hawks most
certainly will.

I



















Continued from last week's
issue of La Gaceta...
"I learned to speak in
clear English. Volunteered
for every stunt and eventu-
ally learned to speak English
with a hint of the West to
charm the beautiful blonde
leading lady. Life was filled
with riches.
"Once again my luck
changed by serendipity. One
Monday the call for the star
was answered by silence. In
the world of one week shoots
that was a disaster." It so
happened he was tall like
Dale and built like Dale.
"For three days we shot all
the shots he was not in on
close up. Long shots, middle
and all riding shots. I played
the drunken star. It was this
star's last role for the studio.
He was 45 yrs old and he was
finished for life. He had in-
vested wisely in Los Angeles
real estate and died at the
age of 50.
"The suits turned to me,
put his hand on my shoulder


and said, rather sadly,
"Well son, you are the star
for this feature. You ready to
do your lines?" "I'll practice
all night long," I said, think-
ing of running lines with my
blonde 'till dawn.
"The writers reduced my
lines to three to five words,
hell, I started to sound like
John Barrymore with a West-
ern Texas drawl.
"'Discontinue rehearsing.
We gotta remember you are
a cowboy.'
"'Yup let us talk contract.'
He groaned.
"'I've created a monster.'
he said. 'You don't by any
chance sing and play the
guitar do you? Let's see what
the dailies show singing.'
"Good. Not singing." I
said, relieved.
- Dale Lives the High Life
When you looked like Dale
Robertson in a land where
good looks ruled the day
and you were Depression-
trained, (I had the Second
World War as a survival


training ground) the rest of
life was easy. You just played
out the good times.
Dale was never short for
great beauties. The great
beauties of the silver screen
where his for the taking.
He only struck out when
he got serious and married
a few and four ladies tried.
Four failed.
"Aw hell, it was always my
fault I was spoiled with the
dames. I should never have
married while I was the top
dog in the boy-girl rat race. It
was always too easy for me. I
expected too much."
Dale told many tales. One
story nailed his trouble one
sad tale of failure with the fe-
male race.
You can't hide what was
happening on and off screen.
By the fifth film everybody in
America was guessing what
was going on between the
blonde and her handsome
costar.
He finally broke the no-
sex on screen code and got


Dale, Old Soldier, Part II


to kiss his costar onscreen.
Granted, it wasn't a Garbo-
Gilbert kiss. But it was defi-
nitely a kiss. The gate was
open. Dale was a talking,
kissing, riding, cowboy star.
His dailies rang the bell. He
was making $3,000 a week.
He was in demand.
The rest is well known if
you follow Dale's career. Ma-
jor studios called, lady stars
wanted him to costar in their
films and his star rose higher
and higher with each pass-
ing year.
The air went out of the
movie business and Dale ef-
fortlessly moved over to TV.
That face and the accents
sounded pure cowboy. He
was in once again.
The most published cou-
ple in Hollywood's glamour
coupling, in their 'day, was
the handsomest man, Dale
Robertson with the most
beautiful Arlene Dahl.
Both were at the top of
their careers. It was a couple
made in heaven. Both had
been married a few times,
had children and Dale did
not appear in any hurry to
get married again.
One night they were in-
vited to an awards dinner. It
was a big social event, and
the couple was easily the
stars of the invited.
Dale hated to be kept wait-
ing for the gorgeous Arlene to


LA GACETA/Friday, March 29, 2013/Page 17


get ready. One night he ar-
rived at the designated time.
Arlene was in the middle of a
fierce argument with her 14
year old son.
He was stuck on math
problems and wanted her
to stay and help him solve
the hard math problem. She
refused and Dale arrived in
time to see Arlene lose her
temper, slap the frustrated
teenager several times and
send him to his room.
Dale, a softie with his own
kids, turned on his heels
and walked out of Arlene's
house. He never returned,
never went back, never said
a word. He was through with
her.
He never spoke to her
again. Ever.
"Shoot, I wouldn't marry a
woman who would not take
the time to help her son and
physically abused him just
because I was waiting. Her
principles were all wrong." To
this day he never explained
to her why he walked out.
Well, as mid-life caught
up with the Don Juan of the
movie lovers, he found a "ci-
vilian" woman, married her
and lived with her in happi-
ness until he died at 79, a
quiet, happily married man
My final day with Dale was
memorable.
We were the kings of the
Antique Car Parade in San
Antonio. We sat on the con-
vertible top of the Duesen-
berg Phaeton.
The street was packed
with old people and they all
cheered the old cowboy. He
was gracious, signed auto-
graphs and posed for pic-
tures. Once in a while an
old timer who recognized me
yelled out, "There's the Fight
Doctor with Dale!"
He loved that I had my'
audience as well and we
took many a photo together.
What a thrill, that day. He
was used to the adulation; I
wasn't.
We parted, swearing to
go on vacation on his horse
ranch, but arthritis kept him
off his prize horses and I did
not want to try horses in the
mountains.
We saw each other again
when he came to Florida to
play golf and our meetings
were always riotous fun. He
was a delight to be with.
I'll miss the old cowboy.
