"I have a dream that my four
little children will one day live in
a nation where they will not be
judged by the color of their skin but
by the content of their character.
"I have a dream today.
"I have a dream that one day,
down in Alabama, with its vicious
racists, with its governor having
his lips dripping with the words of
interposition and nullification one
day right there in Alabama little
black boys and black girls will be
able to join hands with little white
boys and white girls as sisters and
brothers."


Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.,
50 years ago.
Much of King's dream is still just
that a dream, not a reality.
Look in our schools, bars, restau-
rants and churches. There is not
forced segregation instead, it's
mutually-agreed-upon segregation.
Our jails are disproportionately
populated Black men, as are our
unemployment lines.
Listen to the vitriol when the dis-
cussion turns to immigration and
you'll find that Hispanics still have
a mountain to be laid low to find
true freedom, justice and equality

Some misinformed people think
that King's dream was to have a
color-blind America. That is merely
avoiding the issues of race in Amer-

color didn't create limits, barriers or
cause judgments.

Too many say they are now color-
blind, so there is no discrimination.
It just means they are blind to it.
Too many say that we have no
discrimination, since America has
elected a Black president.
That just proves we have a slight

Actualmente guardian prisi6n en China al menos 95 colom-
bianos, el 81% de ellos acusados de trafico de estupefacientes.
Para desespero de los familiares de los colombianos capturados
intentando ingresar drogas a China, el sistema judicial de ese
pals es muy duro con los narcotraficantes. Seguin la legislaci6n
local, cualquier persona encontrada con mas de 50 gramos de
drogas ilegales puede ser condenada a muerte y a las autori-
dades pocas veces les tiembla la mano a. la hora de establecer
el castigo. "Le hemos reiterado al gobierno chino la solicitud de
que se piense, se vuelvan a estudiar los casos, porque en Co-
lombia no existe la pena de muerte", explic6 la semana pasada
la ministry de Relaciones Exteriores, Maria Angela Holguin.
"Pero pues eso es la ley de China, y en el moment que llegan
a all. con droga quedan supeditados a la ley china", admiti6
la canciller, quien llamo a sus compatriotas a pensarlo mejor
antes de "irse con droga a cualquier pals, pero especialmente a
un pals en el que se sabe que hay pena de muerte".

Mexico
Miles de maestros mexicanos, indignados por las nuevas
leyes educativas, bloquearon el acceso al Parlamento durante
tres dias y ahora continuardn sus protests en la centrica plaza
capitalina del Z6calo. Desde el miercoles, los manifestantes
mantenian bloqueos y campamentos ante las cdmaras legislati-
vas, en los alrededores del aeropuerto yen el Z6calo; por lo que
los legisladores no pudieron acceder el miercoles al Parlamento
debido a que miles de maestros cercaron este lugar en serial
de protest. Este bloqueo se dio con el objetivo de impedir a
los diputados debatir las leyes de una reform educativa, a la
que los profesores mexicanos se oponen contundentemente.
Alrededor de 50.000 maestros se encuentran en la capital para
participar.en las manifestaciones; en el sur del pals, mas de
70.000 educadores estbn en paro, de ahi que mas de un mill6n
de nifios no pudieron comenzar su curso escolar. Los docentes

ridos. iMenuda diferencia!). La
organizaci6n no gubemamen-
tal "Medicos Sin Fronteras"

del Gobiemrno sirio y pidi6 a Es-
tados Unidos que espere a que
se establezca con claridad que
sucedi6 en el supuesto ataque
quimico antes de tomar alguna
decision. El secretario general
de la ONU, Ban Ki-moon, dice
que los inspectors de armas
quimicas hardn su report
inmediatamente despues de
regresar'de Siria, es decir, el
pr6ximo sdbado. Los inspecto-
res de la ONU reanudaron sus
investigaciones en Damasco
con un dia de retraso, despues
de que el autom6vil en el que
se trasladaban fuera atacado
el lunes.
LQu6 dice la OTAN? La
OTAN dice que "hay que hacer
rendir cuentas" a los responsa-
bles de la supuesta utilizaci6n
de armas quimicas en Siria.
eQu6 dice Alemania? Un
possible ataque occidental con-
tra Siria "seria igual de legitimo
sin la aprobaci6n del Consejo
de Seguridad de la ONU". Asi
lo ha declarado Ruprecht Po-
lenz (CDU), president de la
Comisi6n de Exterior del Par-
lamento de Alemania. SegniT el
funcionario, aleran, el uso de
armas quimicas contra la po-
blaci6n civil "es una violaci6n
despiadada de un tabfl que no
puede seguir sin respuesta". Si
el Consejo de Seguridad de la
ONU no decide intervenir, "la
comunidad intemacional ten-
dr. igualmente derecho para
hacerlo", acot6.
;Qu6 dice Israel? Dice
poco pero anunci6 este mier-
coles una movilizaci6n parcial
de sus fuerzas militares y. ha
empezado a desplegar siste-
mas de defense antiaereos Pa-
triot en el norte del pals, segun

pectativas de un ataque occi-
dental contra Siria.
eQu6 dice Venezuela? El
president de Venezuela, Nico-
las Maduro, exhorta al mundo
a rechazar una intervenci6n en
Siria.
AQu6 .dice Jordania? Jor-
dania ptecis6 que no permitird
ataques contra Siria desde su
territorio. Asi lo declare el mi-
nistro ae fnformaci6n del pals,
Muhaanmed Mani: "El Reino
Hach&iiita no sera una base
para las fuerzas occidentales".
eQu6 dice China? El mi-
nistro de Relaciones Exteriores
de China, Wang Yi, consider
que la intervenci6n military en
Siria agitara ailn mas todo
Oriente Medio.
3Qu6 dice Iran? Una inter-
venci6n military de EE.UU. en


Las piezas de los actors intemrnacionales se movilizan ria-
pidamente y la maquinaria de guerra se prepare. Los pelos
estan de punta y los gobiemrnos del mundo ponen a hervir
el agua de otra lamentable pesadilla: el conflict sirio.


eQu6 dice Gran Bretafia?
El primer ministry britbnico
David Cameron ha expresa-
do que su pals "ha elaborado
un borrador de resoluci6n que
condena el ataque con armas
quimicas por el gobiemrno de Al
Assad y autoriza las medidas
necesarias .para proteger a los
civiles". El secretario britani-
co de Relaciones Exteriores,
William Hague, comunic6 que
su pals no descarta una inter-
venci6n extranjera en Siria sin
el respaldo unbnime de todos
los miembros del Consejo de
Seguridad de la ONU.
;Qu6 dice Francia? El
president frances, Francois
Hollande, afirm6 que debe ha-
ber "respuesta" a la massacree
quimica" y declare que Francia
aumentara su apoyo military a
la oposici6n siria.
sQu6 dice Cuba? El Minis-
terio de Relaciones Exteriores
de Cuba: "Se llama a atacar a
Siria, cuando su gobiemrno ha
autorizado investigaci6n de la
ONU sobre'el presunto uso de
armas quimicas". Por su parte,
Fidel Castro, ex president cu-
bano, advirti6 este martes que
el Gobiemo de EE.UU. y sus
aliados de Occidente y Medio
Oriente alistan sus equipos y
tUcticas para perpetrar un ge-
nocidio contra los pueblos Ara-
bes, valiendose de mentiras,
manipulaciones medidticas y
de la impunidad prolongada
que han consagrado con sus
operaciones en Kosovo, Irak,
Afganistdn y, recientemente,
Libia. En su column "Re-
flexiones", titulada "La men-
tira tarifada", Fidel alerta que
"muy pronto ocurriran acon-
tecimientos graves. No trans-
curren en nuestra epoca diez


eQu6 dice Siria?
Siria habria presentado
a la ONU pruebas de que los
rebeldes usaron armas quimi-
cas en lugar del gobiemo, se-
gun informa la agencia Efe. El
25 de agosto, Siria dio permiso
official a los experts de la ONU
para acceder al lugar del ata-
que en Guta Oriental.
El president de Siria,
Bashar al Assad, calific6 de
"insulto al sentido comfn" las
declaraciones de quienes acu-
san a su Gobiemrno de emplear
armas quimicas contra grupos
armados opositores apoyados
por Occidente y monarquias
del Golfo. "Es un sinsentido:
primero lanzan las acusacio-
nes y s6lo despues buscan
pruebas", dijo Al Assad en una
entrevista publicada este lunes
por el peri6dico ruso Izvestia.
El ministry de Informaci6n
de Siria, Omran Ahed Zoabi,
insisti6 ante la cadena CNN
en que si EE.UU. dispone de
pruebas sobre ataques quimi-
cos en el territorio sirio debe
presentarlas al mundo. Un dia,
despues, el vicecanciller de Si-
ria ha presentado ante la ONU
"pruebas" que supuestamen-
te vinculan a los opositores
con el ataque quimico de hace
una semana y ha acusado a
EE.UU., Reino Unido y Francia
de ayudar a los terroristsa" a
usar armas quimicas.
Muertos 7 mil nifios sirios
El ntumero de nifnos y nifias

toda la region". Asi lo declare el
lider supremo de Irbn, el aya-

I Que dice Turquia? El mi-
nistro de Exteriores turco, Ah-
met Davutoglu, declare que su
pals "est. dispuesto a partici-
par en la coalici6n contra Siria
incluso sin el respaldo del Con-
sejo de Seguridad de la ONU".
eQue dice Arabia Saudita?
Las fuerzas militares de Ara-
bia Saudita, quienes apoyan
la intervenci6n, se han puesto
en alerta ante la posibilidad de
que los Gobiemrnos occidentales
propongan realizar un ataque

eQu6 dice Rusia? Las au-
toridades rusas han expresa-
do que es inoportuno hablar
sobre la reacci6n del Consejo
de Seguridad de la ONU sobre
la situaci6n en Siria hasta que
los inspectors no presented
su informed. El ministry ruso
de Exteriores, Serguei Lavrov,
dijo durante una conversaci6n
con el enviado de la ONU y la
Liga Arabe, Lakhdar Brahimi,
que la soluci6n diplomdtica es
la finica salida para el conflic-
to sirio, y .advirti6 que inten-
tar resolver la situaci6n me-
diante el uso de la fuerza solo
desembocaria en una mayor
desestabilizaci6n del conflict.
El president ruso, Vladimir
Putin, insisted en que todavia
no hay evidencia alguna de
que el regimen del president
sirio, Bashar al Assad, haya
usado armas quimicas.

OQu6 dice Australia? El
ministry de Exteriores de Aus-

la comunidad international
debe responder al supuesto
uso de armas quimicas en Si-
ria, incluso sin la aprobaci6n

GOBIERNO ANUNCIA INI-
CIATIVA PARA REDUCIR
COSTS UNIVERSITARIOS:
El president Barack Obama
devel6 a finales de la se-
mana pasada un plan para
abaratar los costs de las
matriculas universitarias ba-
sado en un sistema de cla-
sificaci6n de tarifas, el cual
se espera sea implementado
antes de iniciarse el afio aca-
demico 2015. "El costo de las
matriculas se han elevado en
un 250% en las ultimas tres
decadas mientras que los in-
gresos solo han ascendido
en un 16%. Eso significa que
existe una gran brecha", ex-
pres6 Obama.
Ademas agreg6 que el
promedio de deuda de un
estudiante universitario de
una carrera de cuatro afios-
es de $26.000 d6lares, lo
que represent una carga
econ6mica muy pesada para
un recidn graduado que as-
pira insertarse en el estrecho
mercado laboral actual.

una sola derrota. Las victorias
fueron el viemes 7-2 y el sA-

A su vez, Alex Rodriguez,

la decima entrada con un sen-

La Jamsa (del drabe "cinm-
co") es un simbolo con for-
ma de mano que se utiliza
tradicionalmente en numero-
sas cultures y religiones. Esta
mano es un amuleto que pro-
tege del mal, detiene lo adverse
con la palma de la mano, pre-
viene las enfermedades y atrae
la fortune.
Esta adem&s asociada al
nfimero cinco por sus cinco
dedos. Dicho nfumero significa
supremacia, objeto de culto,
represent los sentidos huma-
nos, los elements de la tierra
y los colors primaries.
La mano de Jamsa se ve
generalmente suspendida en
las paredes de las casas o ne-
gocios. Algunas personas tam-
bien la utilizan como bisuteria;
colgada del cuello, pendientes
o pulseras. Este milenario
talismam aparece igualmente
en autom6viles, bolsos o como
aldab6n en las puertas de los
domicilios.
El simbolo del ojo en la mano
es un icono muy vetusto pre-
sente en muchas cultures del
planet. Representa el "ver" y el
"hacer", asi como la aspiraci6n
humana a la omnis6iencia (sa-
berlo todo) y la omnipotencia
(hacerlo todo).
Aunque tanto musulmanes
como judios establecen un
vincutilo entire el significado de
la jamsa y sus propias creen-
cias, la mano posee una cog-
notaci6n universal. Su alcance
va much mds alial de ambas
religiones, estando su uso doc-
umentado desde la Antigiedad.
La usaban ya los fenicios
(desde el 820 a. C., en el norte
de Africa), quienes la asociaban

trona de Cartago y la fertilidad,
una de las principles divini-
dades cartaginesas.
En algunos paises la jamsa
recibe el nombre de manoo de
Fatima", en alusi6n a Fatima
az-Zahra (606-632), hija de
Mahoma. Tambien se le llama
ojo de Fatima, debido a que
algunas versions del simbolo
incluyen un ojo.
Segim cuenta la leyenda, el
profeta Mahoma, fundador del
Islam, tuvo una hija, la bella y
virtuosa Fatima, a la que los
musulmanes veneran con gran
devoci6n. Se cuenta que en
una ocasi6n estaba Fatima
muy ocupada en la cocina pre-
parando la comida cuando su


marido, el imdnAn All, lleg6 ines-
peradamente. Al oirlo, Fatima
abandon por un instant sus
quehaceres y fue a recibirlo. Sin
embargo, qued6 hondamente
decepcionada y triste al ver que
su esposo llegaba acompafiado
de una bellayjoven concubina.
Haciendo ejercicio de su pru-
dencia, Fatima guard silencio
y, atormentada por los celos,
regres6 a la cocina. Inmersa en
oscuros y tristes pensamien-
tos, no prest6 atenci6n a lo que
estaba haciendo: tenia una olla
al fuego con caldo hirviendo y,
mds atenta a su tristeza que
a su trabajo, meti6 la mano
dentro y empez6 a remover el
guiso. Tan absorta estaba que
no sinti6 dolor alguno, pero Ali
vio lo que estaba haciendo y,
horrorizado, se abalanz6 sobre
ella gritando. Fue entonces
cuando Fatima se dio cuenta
de que se estaba quemando la
mano y la sac6 de la olla.
Los musulmanes a menudo
establecen una relaci6n entire
los cinco dedos de la mano y
los cinco pilares del Islam (fe,
oraci6n, peregrinaje, ayuno y
limosna). Los chiitas, a su vez,
lo relacionan con las Cinco
Personas del Manto (Mahoma,
Fatima, Ali, Hasdn y Husein).
El hermoso emblema, sin
embargo, no tiene relaci6n
alguna con el Islam. De
hecho, una interpretaci6n
rigorista desaconsejaria su
extendido uso, ya que el
CorAn prohibe la idolatria,
los amuletos y la superstici6n
en general. No obstante,

Jamsa: simbolo de protecci6n universal


El president de Venezuela,

recientemente que iba a solici-
tar una emergencia constitu-
cional y national, para luchar
contra la corrupci6n y poderes
especiales, con lo cual intent
levar a cabo una reform de

de delito. De ser aprobado,
lo anterior se realizara por la
Asamblea Nacional.


calidad de vida del pueblo. A
nosotros no nos van a condi-
cionar, ni a chantajear por no
aprobarles una habilitante. No
se require poder habilitante
para combatir la corrupci6n.
La corrupci6n se combat con
disposici6n y voluntad para
trabajar por el pueblo. No
se puede combatir la corrup-
ci6n sin poderes aut6nomos.
Aprobar una ley habilitante


eQu6 es una ley habilitante?
La illtima parte de la Consti-
tuci6n, en su articulo 203, dis-
pone lo siguiente: "Son leyes
habilitantes las sancionadas
por la Asamblea Nacional, por
las tres quintas parties de sus
integrantes, a fin de establecer
las directrices, prop6sitos y
marco de las materials que
se delegan al Presidente o
President de la Repfiblica, con
rango y valor de ley. Las leyes
habilitantes deben fijar plazo
para su ejercicio".
El articulo se refiere a los
165 diputados que integran
la Asamblea Nacional y, por
lo tanto, para aprobar la
solicitada ley habilitante se
necesitan 99 votos, que son
las tres quintas parties de todos
los votos. El gobiemrno cuenta
actualmente con 98 votos, por
lo que le hace falta un voto
para aprobar la ley habilitante.
Esta seria la quinta ley ha-
bilitante desde 1999. Entre los
afios 2000-2001; 2007-2008 y
2010-2012 fueron aprobadas
las otras.
Nicolas Maduro sefial6 que
necesita mayores poderes para
poder enfrentar la corrupci6n.
"Voy a pedir poderes habilitan-
tes especiales. Es necesaria
una emergencia legislative,
political, constitutional, pero,
sobre todo, compafieros, una
emergencia popular: el pueblo
combatiendo la corrupci6n y
la vieja 6tica capitalist, que
pretend carcomer el pals para
tomArselo otra vez", afirm6
durante un acto con los can-
didatos del Partido Socialista
Unido de Venezuela (PSUJV), en
el Teatro Nacional de Caracas,
el viernes 16 de agosto.
"Voy a pedir a la maxima
autoridad de la Asamblea Na-
cional una ley habilitante para
ir a un process profundo para
combatir la corrupci6n y pedir
las penas mdximas para casti-
gar delitos, como legitimaci6n
de capitalss" precise el man-
datario venezolano.
La oposici6n political ve la
solicitud de la una ley habili-
tante como algo nada trans-
parente. El diputado a la
Asamblea Nacional (AN) Andrds
Velasquez sefial6 la posici6n
de la oposici6n y dijo lo
siguiente: "La gobemrnabilidad
y legitimidad de un gobiemrno,
no s6lo se mide en votos, sino
en el manejo transparent de
los recursos y de las acciones
que hacen para mejorar la


para Maduro es darle carta
abierta para que continue con
su persecuci6n a los sectors
de oposici6n y con sus abu-
sos de poder. Incompetencia,
ineptitud y corrupci6n son las
principles caracteristicas de
este Gobierno", dijo Velasquez.
Sobre la desconfianza de la
oposici6n a esa ley habilitante,
se basa en hechos. Por ejem-
plo, la mayoria chavista en
la Asamblea acus6 al partido
de Capriles de financiarse de
forma illegal y practicar el nar-
cotraLfico, la prostituci6n y trata
de blancas. Tambien, han
acusado a Henrique Capriles

de asesino y fascista y seftalado
que el lider opositor estA in-
merso en la mayor corrupci6n.
Tambien, el gobierno acus6
a Oscar Lopez, al que calific6
como "el zar de las finanzas
de Primero Justicia (PJ)", por
liderar una red de prostituci6n
con la anuencia de Capriles.
Dijeron que mostrarian fotos
que supuestamente probaban
las acusaciones. Sin embargo,
los chavistas en dos ocasiones
no han presentado las pruebas
de supuesta trata de blancas y
prostituci6n ante el Ministerio
PFiblico.
Ante los hechos anteriores,
la oposici6n tiene fundamentos
creibles que la ley habilitante
se use contra ellos en una
caceria de brujas, que tenga
por fin eliminar la oposici6n.
Concentrar tanto poder con
esa ley, en manos del presi-
dente es muy peligroso, ante
el ambiente politico que vive
Venezuela. Se puede combatir
la corrupci6n con leyes aproba-
das en la Asamblea Nacional,
con el consenso de todos, y no
en manos de una sola persona.

La dinamica de la trasgresion en

la mitologia clasica (II)


Ascalafo es reconocido como
"el parlero ministry de Plut6n
(Hades en la mitologia griega)",
espia del infierno, biho que
anuncia la desgracia y cuyo
mito esta relacionado con
temas de osadia, prohibici6n,
castigo y venganza. Es hijo
de Aqueronte de Orfne, una
de las mas bellas ninfas del
Averno. Ascalafo acus6 a Per-
seforle/Proserpina de haber
comido-siete granos de una
granada del jardin del Hades
(el alimento de los muertos).
Persefone, al comer del fruto
prohibido, violaba eljuramento
que habia hecho de abstenerse
de todo alimento. La diosa de
los muertos, en venganza a la
delaci6n, metamorfose6 a As-
calafo en pajaro de mal agiiero.
Asi describe el poeta romano
Ovidio el castigo: "...lo roci6
con agua de Fleget6n, form
una especie de monstruo de
grandes plumas y de grandes
ojos; todo su cuerpo se com-
ponia de grandes alas amaril-
las, una inmensa cabeza y una
ufnas crecidisimas".
De la misma forma que el
resto de las ayes nocturnas,
Ascalafo establece la atm6sfera
de la noche, pero su distintivo
basico es ser delator. El mito de
Persefone, en el cual Ascalafo
juega un rol fundamental,
evoca el conocidisimo pasaje
biblico que explica el pecado
adanico original: el comer del
drbol prohibido de la ciencia y
el conocimiento, y la separa-
ci6n que este pecado original
entire el hombre y su Creador.
Ascalafo es de esta manera un
element intermediario en la
-triada transgresi6n-delaci6n-
castigo. Persefone es la trans-
gresora, Hades y su reino
represefitarit el castigo en si,
mientras Ascalafo, al notificar
la transgresi6n, cataliza el
castigo.
En tanto, en otros de los
grandes mitos marcados por
la osadia, 'Dedalo y su hijo
Icaro, press en el laberinto del
Minotauro, escaparon volando
con alas de cera fabricadas por
el primero. Sin embargo, Icaro
vo16 demasiado cerca del sol;
sus alas se derritieron y cay6
al mar.
El mito de Icaro no s6lo
trasciende por su valor aleg6ri-
co sino porque promueve un
intense sentimiento lirico
que estimula uina profunda
reflexi6n tan ancestral como
actual sobre la naturaleza
y las -limitaciones del genero
human, la cual concierta lo
inalcanzable y prohibido. La
excelencia que excede la ca-
pacidad humana de Icaro es
el astro Rey, simbolo del Dios
supremo, con el cual emula. Es
indiscutible que la imagen que
proyecta Icaro encierra conno-
taciones de trasgresi6n, osadia
y castigo, asi como transfor-
maci6n, ascenso y descenso.
El fracaso de Icaro establece
una analogia entire la imposi-

'por todo lo criado' mas para

cepci6n comparable a la.de los

establece el fil6sofo Jose Gaos.
Por otra parte, el humanista
Alfonso Mendez Plancarte se

fracaso como las ocurrentes
para figurar 6ste".
Al mismo tiempo, una de
las figures mitol6gicas mas
inmersa en el tema de la in-
trepidez es Faet6n. Narra el
mito griego de la promesa
que Helios, antiguo dios del
Sol de la mitologia griega, le
habia hecho a su hijo Faet6n:
concederle cualquier deseo.
El intrepido mancebo le pidi6
que le confiriera la oportunidad
de conducir el carro del Sol a
traves del cielo, acci6n prohi-
bida a los mortales. Faet6n fue
tan perseverante en su afan de
exigencia y resuelto en su aspi-
raci6n de lograrlo que su padre
le concedi6 el deseo, aunque
con justificada reserve. Ya es-
tablecido dentro del carruaje
maravilloso pudo ensefiorearse
sobre todo lo que le rodeaba,
mas esta dicha gloriosa fue
fugaz. Perdi6 el control de las
riendas. Los corceles desbo-
cados y el carruaje en llamas
amenazaban con incendiar el
Orbe. Para evitarlo, Zeus los
fulmin6 con un rayo.
La mayoria de los estudiosos
toman como referencia a Ovi-
dio para reconocer a Apolo, en
lugar de Helios, como padre de
Faet6n y duefio del carruaje del
Sol. Asi lo hace Mendez Plan-
carte: "Y de Faetone, a quien
su padre Apolo se vi6 obligado
dejarle guiar su carro". Igual-
mente, el catedratico Alberto


"La Caida de Faeton", cua-
dro del pintor flamenco Jan
Carel van Eyck, 1610-1668,
Museo Nacional del Prado.
Perez-Amador Adam establece
la patemrnidad de Apolo: "(...)
recuerda el ejemplo de Faet6n
quien, a pesar de las dificul-
tades descritas por Apolo no se
amedrenta y pretend conducir
el carro del Sol".. Tanto Helios
como Apolo son nombrados
indistintamente para referirse
al mismo mito. Se decia que
Apolo conducia el carro del
Sol, por lo que se le consider
el dios del astro Rey, e incluso
se le tom6 por el Sol mismo. Si
bien, Apolo es simplemente el
dios de la luminosidad solar, lo
que, en la racional civilizaci6n
griega no es lo mismo a ser el
dios del Sol, cargo este que
ostentaba Helios.

ARIES: del 21 de marzo al
20 de abrll
Mucho te ha preocupado la
relaci6n de lo terrenal con lo ce-
lestial, pero en estos moments
la fuerza de Marte ha desper-
tado en ti el sentido practice
y la disposici6n a resolver los
asuntos materials antes que
los espirituales.
TAURO: del 21 de abril al
20 de mayo
Engafiar una vez puede ser
facil porque la persona enga-
fiada esta desprevenida, pero
continuar con el engafio es lo
dificil ya que el fantasma de
la sospecha siempre le abre el
entendimiento a las victims.
Te atraen los temas ocultos o
metafisicos.
GEIMINIS: del 21 de mayo
al 20 de junio
Para ti no existen las medias
tintas, los trabajos a medias,
los medios amigos, las aventu-
ras a medias o los compromises
a medias. Amas con intense
pasi6n, pero eres capaz de
odiar con la misma tormentosa
fuerza. Dedicale mas tiempo a
la lectura.
CANCER: del 21 de junior
al 22 de julio
No le temes ni a la muerte.
Eres una persona valiente y de-
cidida, pero debes pensar que
tu vida tiene valor no s6lo para
ti sino tambien para los que de
ti dependent. No te arriesgues
innecesariamente.
LEO: del 23 de julio al 23
de agosto
Tienes m6s virtudes que
defects, pero debes destacar
las primeras para que no se
impongan por sobre los segun-
dos. Tu persistencia te hace
aparecer frecuentemente como
una persona terca. La fidelidad


no es un sacrificio cuando se
ama.
VIRGO: del 24 de agosto al
23 de septiembre
Te molesta much la injus-
ticia, pero ello no te obliga a
convertirte en un vengadorn de
los desvalidos. Recuerda que
el que se mete a Cristo muere
crucificado. Trata de descubrir
las emociones de los dem&s y
comprender sus posiciones.
LIBRA: del 24 de septiem-
bre al 23 de octubre
La sospecha y los celos son
capaces de echar abajo cual-
quier relaci6n. Adembs, agotan
todas las energies fisicas y
emocionales. Piensa que tienes

artist PAvel Antequera

la suerte de haber encontrado
una pareja que se acopla tan
bien contigo y que reciproca-
mente despiertan apasionadas
emociones.
ESCORPIO: del 24 de octu-
bre al 22 de noviembre
No tome todos los mensa-
jes que recibas literalmente.
Trata de descifrar lo que se
esconde detrds del lenguaje
explicit. Observa los gestos
y, sobre todo, la mirada, de
tus interlocutores. Control tu
entusiasmo ante proposiciones
para obtener dinero rApido.


SAGITARIO: del 24 de
noviembre al 23 de diciem-
bre
Pon atenci6n a tu sexuali-
dad y actlsa razonablemente.
Cuidate, hoy en dia lo mas
grave no es un embarazo, sino
consecuencias much peores.
Las personas responsables
comienzan siendolo con ellas
mismas. Aprovecha la opor-
tunidad para reactivar tus
ejercicios.
CAPRICORNIO: del 24 de
diciembre al 20 de enero
La sensaci6n de desconten-
to que experiments en estos
moments cesar& gracias a la
presencia de una persona que
se acercard a ti para ayudarte
y abrirte los ojos hacia cami-
nos positivos de progress. Te
gusta el misterio, lo mistico.
ACUARIO: del 21 de ene-
ro al 19 de febrero
Responder a tu pareja de
manera egocentrica, antepo-
niendo tus propios intereses e
ignorando sus necesidades y
sugerencias no contribuir& a
construir una relaci6n durade-
ra. Si superas eso te converti-
rds en una persona apasionada
y maravillosa como amante.
PISCIS: del 20 de febrero
al 20 de marzo
Tu espiritu emprendedor te
ubicar& bien en los negocios,
pero debes tener much cuida-
do al invertir dinero. Alienta a
tus hijos en todas las &reas de
sus vidas, pero no cometas el
error de intentar conducirlos
hacia tus propios intereses y
de pretender decidir por ellos.

Nuevo Sistema Electr6nico de

La Oficina de Inmigraci6n y

comenz6 a mediados de 2012
la primera fase de un nuevo
sistema electr6nico de Inmi-
graci6n (ELIS, por sus siglas
en ingl6s), creado inicialmente
para modernizar el process de
solicitud y adjudicaci6n de al-

Outdoor Sportsman's

Report


By Richard Muga


You Should Know...


We have received the fol-
lowing announcements that
may be of interest to our out-
door sports-oriented readers.
From Berkley Tackle Com-
pany:
Berkley Fishing Tackle,
one of the most respected
companies of outdoor prod-
ucts in the U.S., is giving
back to the community that
helped it grow. Berkley is
a fishing tackle company
founded in 1937 by Berkley
Bedell in Iowa. Berkley is best
known for its brands Berk-
ley Trilene fishing line and
Powerbait scented lures. The
Jarden Corporation acquired
Berkley's parent company,
Pure Fishing, in April 2007.
The company has launched
the first International High
School Fishing Club Chal-
lenge. Beginning August
15th, high school fishing
coaches are able to register
their school to participate in
the program. The program
lasts through the school year
and offers numerous fish-
ing related opportunities, re-
wards, product samples and
prizes.
"The program is designed
to encourage more students
to participate in fishing activ-
ities through high schools,"
says Roxanne Coleman, Se-
nior Field Marketing Manager
at Berkley Fishing. "Through-
out the year clubs will be
given a variety of team and
individual challenges, and
the successful completion of
those tasks will earn the club
rewards and points for the
team."
The ultimate goal is for
some high school club to win
the Berkley High School Cup.
The winning team receives
$4,000 in prizes for that fish-
-ing team. Berkley will also
be awarding 2nd place, 3rd
place and honorable-mention
finishers. This program is not
just about catching the big-
gest or most fish; it's about
learning fishing skills, nature
conservation and creating a
lifetime hobby.
"Berkley Fishing is step-
ping outside the box to bring
a one-of-a-kind fishing pro-
gram to high schools in the
US and Canada," said Chris
Hockley, Berkley Brand Mar-
keting Manager. "Our objec-
tive is to enhance the stu-
dent's enjoyment of fishing
and all that comes with the
sport."-
According to the an-


nouncement, fishing clubs do
not have to be sanctioned by
the local board of education,
but must be a part of the high
school, just like the debate or
math clubs.
This sounds like a great op-
portunity for our high .school
students to take a break from
their electronic attachments,
got out in the sun and enjoy
some outdoor activities. Who
knows, they may even like it.

up team coaches (only one
per school) register at http://

From the Florida Wildlife
Commission:
Because many of our West
Coast fishers will travel to the
East Coast for red snapper
season, we thought this an-
nouncement would be impor-
tant to them as well as to the
well-being of the fish they will
pursue. Cooperation among
the rule makers and recre-
ational fishers has never been
as important as it is now. The
making of rules pertaining to
red snapper seasons as well
as limits, have been conten-
tious to say the least. Per-
haps, with a bit more scien-
tific data, the sports fishers
will gain a bit more edge on
their battle for larger limits
and longer seasons.
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) and National Oceanic
and Atmospheric Administra-
tion (NOAA) researchers are
asking anglers to help them
gather information about the
important Atlantic red snap-
per fishery. The recreational
red snapper season is open
Aug. 23 through Aug. 25 (a
Friday through Sunday) in
south Atlantic federal waters.
FWC researchers and vol-
unteers will be out along
Florida's East Coast during
each day of the season, ask-
ing recreational fishers about
their red snapper trips and
their catch. Researchers will
also collect biological samples
of harvested fish, which will
not affect the fillet, to help
determine the age of each red
snapper.
Biologists sampled more
than 2,000 red snapper dur-
ing the federal opening in
2012 as a result of these ef-
forts. The new study, includ-
ing anglers' survey responses
and biological samples, will
give researchers valuable
data about the red snapper

fishery. Fisheries scientists
could use this information
in future population assess-
ments.
While the federal opening
will have no size limit and a
bag limit of one fish per per-
son, per day, in Florida state
waters there is a 20-inch total
length minimum size limit, in
addition to a bag limit of two
fish per person, per day.
Vessels with red snapper
smaller than the state's mini-
mum size limit must travel
through state waters without
stopping and have fishing
gear stowed.
When anglers catch a
tagged red snapper, FWC re-
searchers ask that they re-
port it to the Angler Tag Re-
turn Hotline: 800-367-4461.
When calling the hotline, an-
glers should indicate the spe-
cies, tag number, date and
time of capture, catch loca-
tion, fish length, type of bait
used and whether the fish
was kept or released.
If the fish is released, the
angler is asked to leave the
tag in place to help with fu-
ture data collection.

about red snapper sampling
efforts, visit MyFWC.com/Re-
search.
For information on red
snapper regulations, visit My-
FWC.com/Fishing, and click
on "Recreational Regulations"
under "Saltwater" and then
select "Atlantic Snappers."
The reality of this recre-
ational fishery as it stands is
that if red snapper is the only
targeted species, it is just not
worth the expense to seek
them.

The Saturday Morning Break-
fast Group is debuting its weekly
column. In this space, the group's
African-American political and busi-
ness community will present views
affecting that community and the
city at large.
* * *
The Saturday Morning Break-
fast Group (SMBG) does more than
just eat. The mission of our group
is to support the special interest,
welfare and prosperity of citizens
within the African-American com-
munity, with honor and integrity:
It is a way of improving the entire
community.
The SMBG has been visited by
many of the local and state leaders.
I'm sure that Saturday mornings
are times when many of these busy
people would appreciate a break
from very demanding citizens. Yet,
representatives from the Tampa
City Council, Hillsborough County
Commission, Hillsborough County
School Board, and State Legisla-
ture have each visited the Open
Cafe in east Tampa for thoughtful
exchange with the Saturday Morn-
ing Breakfast Group (SMBG). The
SMBG appreciates, as well, the vis-
its from the Hillsborough County
Supervisor of Elections and the
Hillsborough County Administra-
tor. Breaking bread with the group
on Saturday mornings have also
been the Chairpersons and/or
CEO(s) of the Port Authority and
Aviation Authority. More visits are
expected.
The SMBG has learned a lot
about the visions, plans and frus-
trations of these very caring pro-
fessionals.
After having the good fortune of
seeing and hearing about so many
plans for development of our local
jurisdictions, I wonder, "What if?"
What if there was more con-
science connectivity of planning
and boards so that greater econo-
mies are realized? What if there
were more joint decisions made
about the size, placement of struc-
tures and offerings at the airport,
Channelside, Waterfront and

You are my Mother. Oh, Holy Mary,
Mother of God, Queen of Heaven and
Earth, I humbly beseech you from the
bottom of my heart to succor me in
this necessity. There are none that
can withstand your power. Oh, show
me herein you are my Mother. Oh
Mary, conceived without sin, pray for
us who have recourse in Thee (3

goal. You who gave me the divine gift
to forgive and forget all evil against
me and that in all instances in my life
you are with me. I want in this short
prayer to thank you for all the things
as you confirm once again that I
never want to be separated from you
in Eternal Glory. Thank .you for your
mercy towards me and mine. The
person must say this prayer 3
consecutive days. After .3 days the
request will be granted. This prayer
must be published after the favor is
granted. Say this prayer for three
consecutive days. You must publish it

Tampa's Westshore? What if, in
our 30-year development vision,
we factored in not only our cur-
rent transportation needs but the
-anticipated transportation needs
resulting from the technical and
socio-economic actions we take
today? What if the separate but
broadly celebrated ethnic, cultural
and social events in the city be-
came one big event that includes
all of us? What if we worked to
make these "what if' notions politi-
cally correct?
In the meantime, we thank the
leaders for their exchanges with
the SMBG and look forward to
continuing to partner with those
who want to use all of our talent
in building a place that makes us
proud.
The SMBG has individual skill
sets acquired locally and nationally
in both public and private environ-
ments. We will continually push
to partner with others interested in
improving our jurisdictions.
















Prior to last weekend, my
greatest experience at a com-
ic convention was at one I
didn't actually attend.
It was 2005. My brother
and I had produced what we
consider our first "real" film,
meaning it had true profes-
sionalism attached to it.
Ferdie Pacheco allowed us
to write a short film based
around one of his short sto-
ries. Al Sapienza of The So-
pranos agreed to fly down to
Tampa for the weekend to
star in it. The film, called The
Dance, won awards at film
festivals throughout Florida
and was a showcased short
film at festivals throughout
the country.

asked if they could show it.
Of course I said yes. The film
had not yet screened in my
home city and I was look-
ing forward to showing it off.
Even more importantly, I had
just starting dating a new
girl and was eager to look
like a big-time filmmaker in
her eyes.
The film festival was held
in the ballroom of a hotel in
South Tampa. And it just so
happened that on that same
weekend the hotel also host-
ed a comic book convention.
Rather than looking like a
future Hollywood filmmaker
in front of a girl I was dating,
all her attention was drawn
to the grown men and wom-
en parading around the hotel
dressed as super heroes.
Once my film began in
the ballroom, however, focus
was back on my budding film
career. The film was good, if
I may brag. Then, halfway
through it, the door to the
ballroom swung open, some-
one flipped on all the lights
and yelled, "I think we can
play Magic in here!" (Magic
is a card game akin to Dun-
geons and Dragons.) The
audience spun around to
see the perpetrator it was
a 300-pound man crammed
into a Green Lantern cos-
tume, tights and all. Some-
one in the audience yelled
out, "Green Lantern really let
himself go," and the room ex-
ploded in laughter.
Not even Citizen Kane
could have trumped over-


weight Green Lantern. My
thunder was stolen. But it
was worth it. For years, that
has been one of my favor-
ite stories and my top mo-
ment regarding comic con-
ventions. Yes, I am a comic
nerd; I don't dress up in
costumes, but I do love the
colorful books. I have been to
a handful of comic conven-
tions in my life.
Last weekend's experience
at the Tampa Comic Conven-
tion trumped the Green Lan-
tern moment, however. I took
my 7-year-old step-son to his
first "nerd fest" and he had a
blast. The day was filled with
photo ops with his favorite
Star Wars characters Darth
Vader, Chewbacca, and three
different Storm Troopers. The
convention had a replica of
the trash compactor from the
original Star Wars that kids
could get inside and pretend
to brace the walls while they
mug for the cameras. He also
met a Ghostbuster, the robot
from Lost in Space, and a gi-
ant Lego Batman.
My stepson is not into
sports, something which I
live and breathe. I have tried
to get him interested, tried
to play any sport with him,
tried get him to sit and watch
sports with me, tried taking
him to games, but he never
shows any interest. That's
fine. Sports are not for ev-
eryone. However, once upon
a time it bothered me a lit-
tle bit; I thought it would be
nice if he enjoyed sports so


Green Lantern to the Rescue


that it provided us a common
interest.
However, then he began
falling in love with comic
book movies and everything
Star Wars and it provided us
with that bonding experience
I craved. That is what made
the comic convention with
him so special. It wasn't how
excited he was every time
he saw one of his big-screen
heroes. It was that we were
equally excited whenever WE
saw one of our big-screen he-
roes. We met Chewbacca!
What was best of all,
though, was that it was the
first time in a while that my
stepson and I had one-on-
one interaction. With three
kids and now four, it's hard
to get alone time with any
one child. But, as I learned
last weekend, it is important
to find a way to get it with
each.
One of my greatest fears of
having four kids is trying to
find time to bond with them.
When you take four kids
anywhere the pool, beach,
park, arcade, etc. you have
to split your time among all
the kids, jumping from one
to the other so often that
none of them really ever end
up getting any quality time
from you. In a way, you feel
more like a babysitter than a
parent. I've been afraid that
my kids and I would never
bond in the same manner as
one- or two-child families do.
Weekends like last in
which I had alone time with
one of the kids are a neces-
sity. It's hard; if Amy or I
have one kid, then the other
has three kids. That never
seems like a fair prospect
to the other parent. Look-
ing back, however, whether
they did so consciously or
not, my parents operated in
that manner. My father used

to take me to see a movie or
sporting event and leave my
brother and sister behind.
My mother would often wake
me early to take me out for
breakfast without my sib-
lings in tow. I am sure both
parents did the same for my
brother and sister. (Or at
least I hope so, otherwise ...
when they read this ... AWK-
WARD!)
Most of memories from my
childhood of my parents re-
volve around those one-on-
one moments. I remember
them taking my siblings and
me many places together as
well, but I don't remember
anything specific about my
parents on those days; they
were too busy splitting time
between three kids to do
anything for one child that
would leave a lasting impres-
sion.
I am positive that years
from now, my step-son will
remember our first comic
convention together.
Perhaps Amy and I split-
ting up once a weekend one
with three kids and the other
with just one is the secret
to parenting four children.
I am far from a parenting
expert. I am not sure if this
is the answer. Right now, it
seems like it is.
However, while I look for-
ward -to those one-on-one
weekends I would get, boy do
I not look forward to those
three-on-one weekends.
Sounds like a lot of work ...
maybe the Green Lantern fi-
nally got himself back into
shape and can lend me a
hand on those weekends.

(Continued from page 1)
majority of those who voted who
can accept a Black president or just
couldn't swallow John McCain or
Mitt Romney.
The tough part of moving King's
dream to reality is in addressing
those who claim victory because
they won't recognize their own
prejudices or prejudices in those
around them.
We hope the 50th anniversary
of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s "I
Have a Dream" speech renews the
talk of race, discrimination and
prejudice in this country. Ignoring
it won't make it go away;

The Ybor City Development
Corporation (YCDC) is worried
about a recent uptick in violent
crimes in Ybor City and one of its
subcommittees was looking for
solutions. There was talk of using
drones or helicopters to patrol the
historic district and of hiring a na-
tional security expert to advise on
surveillance.
Has Dick Cheney joined the
YCDC? We thought the problem
was punks and miscreants, not Al-
Qaeda terrorists.
Are those gangs infiltrating the
historic district after midnight or
are they sleeper cells? First it's a
drone or two, then we'll be wire-
tapping and waterboarding in Old
Ybor.

We hear the Hillsborough Coun-
ty School District is investigating
State Representative Mark Dan-
ish for campaigning on school
property. The District said that it
couldn't comment on an ongoing
investigation, which confirms there
is one. Representative Danish said
that there is nothing there and he
doesn't even know what the Dis-
trict is investigating. It seems the
District and Danish haven't spoken
yet because he has taken a leave
of absence from teaching and the
District's investigator can't find him
at school. Apparently, the District
can't use a phone like we did to
contact Danish.
He is taking another leave from
teaching for the upcoming school
year, which will further delay the
investigation.
Campaigning on school property
has caused others to be fired from
the District. Most recently, Carl
Kosierowski was fired for pass-
ing out campaign materials. The
School District and Danish should
work together to get to the bottom
of these accusations. We don't need
a shadow of wrongdoing to remain
over our elected officials.

In the spirit of government in
the sunshine and in an effort to
ensure the public that purchasing
decisions at the School Board are
made without conflict, School Board
Chair April Griffin offered a motion.
It read to "require all superinten-
dent cabinet members [appointees
to top administrative positions] to
file public reports of their finances
as well as other interests outside
the.government." The motion failed
three to three with Candy Olson
absent. One of the "no" votes was
from Dr. Stacy White, who is run-
ning for county commissioner and
characterizes himself as a fiscal
conservative and a government
spending watchdog. We wonder
how a "no" vote fits into his watch-
dog status.

The City of Tampa's charter re-


quires the redistricting of the single
member districts every four years.
The process is entrusted to the
Planning Commission. Five differ-
ent maps are already available for
showing new district boundaries.
Six meetings have been set for
public comment, with the first one
to take place on September 18, from
6 to 8 p.m. at the North Tampa
Branch Library at 8916 North Blvd.
The maps, meeting sites and
dates can be found at www.
planhillsborough.org/redistricting/.
The redistricting requires very
minor changes, mostly to compen-
sate for population growth in New
Tampa and population decline in
East Tampa.

This was a good week for Demo-
crats in Pinellas County. The vote
for mayor and city council in the
City of Saint Petersburg bode well
for a Democratic sweep in the runoff
elections.
In the mayor's race, incumbent
Republican Bill Foster received
40.6 percent of the vote. Rick Krise-
man, who is a Democrat, came in
second with 38.9 percent of the
vote. The two were separated by
less than a thousand votes. They
will face off again on November 5.
Most feel the race is set up for
Kriseman to win, even though he's
currently second. One reason is the
closeness of the race demonstrates
the incumbent is weak. Kriseman
has been rising in the polls, so
momentum is on his side and most
importantly, Kathleen Ford pulled
19.3 percent or 9,642 votes. It's hard
to believe a Ford voter would move
to Foster. He or she is more likely
to flock to Kriseman. The Ford vote
easily puts him over the edge. If
Kriseman wins, he'll be the first
Democrat to hold the mayor's office
since 2000, when David Fischer was
termed out.
Saint Petersburg has a strange
quirk in its elections that you don't
see on this side of the Bay. If there
are more than two candidates,
the race must have a runoff, even
if one candidate receives over 50
percent of the vote. The election for
District 6 and District 8 would be
settled in most counties and cities,
yet Karl Nurse with 69.2 percent
of the vote must still have a runoff
with Sharon Russ, who only pulled
in 18.65 percent. Amy Foster faces
the same lopsided runoff. She got
55.9 percent and must run again
against Steve Galvin, who pulled
only 18.3 percent.
District 4 will see Darden Rice
with 45.9 percent facing Carolyn
Fries with 26.1 percent of the vote.
We don't see any of the current
leaders losing. All are Democrats.

Judge Christopher Nash filed
Tuesday to run for reelection. He
is being challenged by Norman
Cannella, Jr. Nash's treasurer is
Margaret Mathews, who is on the
Florida Bar's Board of Governors
and is the past president of the
Hillsborough County Bar.

We recently wrote that the Hills-
borough County School System re-
jected the administration's recom-
mendation for new bus purchases.
We commented that it seemed the
Board showed it had no confidence
in the administration choosing the
best bidder.
The issue came up for a third
time this week and the Board voted
to pay an outside consultant to
evaluate the best buses to buy.


The Honorable Laurel Moore Lee was sworn into the Circuit Court
of the Thirteenth Judicial Circuit August 22, in front of Chief Judge
Manuel Menendez, Jr. She was joined by her husband, Florida Senator
Tom Lee, and their three children. Judge Lee was appointed to the
bench by Governor Rick Scott on May 6.


The School District has its own
experts people who have in-depth
knowledge of the maintenance is-
sues and performance of buses. It
has its own data on the reliability
and durability of these different
makes of buses.
The issue seems to be that the
Board doesn't feel it's getting un-
biased, intelligent and insightful
advice from its staff. If this is true,
the superintendent needs to evalu-
ate her staff. This lack of confidence
is costing the taxpayers money.

Local union leader Bill Dever will
be honored on Wednesday, Septem-
ber 4, for his six years of service as
the president of the Florida Gulf
Coast Building Trades. Mr. Dever
is leaving to take a position with
the International Brotherhood of
Electrical Workers in business
development construction. He'll be
based here and will travel across
the country. His replacement at the
Building Trades is Jack Jarrell of
the Iron Workers Local.
The event will be held from 11
a.m. to 2 p.m. at the IBEW Hall on
5621 Harney Rd.

Democrat Alan Cohn announced
yesterday that he would run for
Congressional District 15 against
Republican incumbent Dennis
Ross.
District 15 now has 59 percent
of its population in Hillsborough
County. Registration is evenly
split, but the district has a history
of performing Republican.
Mr. Cohn has been a journalist
for most of his life. He was an in-
vestigative reporter for ABC WFTS-
Channel 28 for three years. He
broke the story on Commissioner
Jim Norman's Arkansas vacation
home gifted to his wife from Ralph
Hughes. He won a Peabody Award
for uncovering fraud in government
when it purchased defective parts
for Black Hawk helicopters.
How nice would it be to have a
congressman who could uncover
fraud, not commit it?
SCongressman Ross is very con-.
servative, much more than his
district.
He is against immigration re-
form, even though his district
desperately needs it. His farmers
need workers and thousands live
in his boundaries as shadow citi-
zens. He's against trade and travel
with Cuba, standing in the way of
strawberries, tomatoes, oranges


and phosphate being sold from his
district to Havana.
Ross' biggest sin is that he is
keeping the gridlock in Congress,
one of those who believes it is bet-
ter to have the country fail than
compromise.
Cohn is a very bright, committed
candidate. We hope District 15 will
look past partisanship and instead
embrace moving America forward.

Tampa Hispanic Heritage, Inc.
will honor and induct several in-
dividuals into its 2013 leadership
class. The honorees are: Gabriel
Cartaya Arts; Maria Barrios -
Media; Eileen Rodriguez Busi-
ness; Linda Friedman-Ramirez
Orgullo; Luis E. Viera Civic
Involvement; and Daniel. Valdez -
Education.
The group is very deserving, but
we thought the award to Deputy
Superintendent Valdez was espe-
cially meaningful and long overdue.
Mr. Valdez has given decades of

worth it to all but certain down-
town merchants with misman-
aged expectations and few cus-
tomers. Tampa, however, was
seen as a major player on the
world's premier international
political stage. Going forward,
it can only help.
BATs in The Belfry
We all know how important
acronyms, memes and nick-
names are in securing public
notice and marketplace sepa-
ration. But what's with this
national group of activist, an-
ti-Common Core curriculum
teachers, including some 1,200
in Florida, who call themselves
"BATs?" That stands for Ba-
dass Teachers Association.
Granted, there are legitimate
issues over national standards
and over-testing, but calling
yourself "Badasses" doesn't
add credibility to a cause. Es-
pecially not in this obnoxiously
polarized political environment.
Somebody with attitude
took some badass advice.
Bus Beating
I assume I'm not alone in
my revulsion at seeing that vi-
ral school bus video showing
the three 15 year olds savagely
beating, robbing and breaking
the arm of a scared, cowering
13 year old. They were.all at-
tending, for what it's worth,
summer classes at Lealman
Intermediate School in St. Pe-
tersburg. After initially wincing
and averting my eyes, I was
overcome with a combination
of anger and disillusionment.
This spoke volumes about an
America I wished we didn't
have to acknowledge.
Three thugs beat this de-
fenseless kid with impunity.
The bus driver didn't intervene.
Something to do with policy -
as if human instinct didn't cov-
er it. None of'the other students
on board helped out either. No-
body got involved. As a society,
we've told ourselves that if ter-
rorists ever try to take over an-
other airliner, it's time for the
passengers to roll. Maybe we're
deluding ourselves.
Moreover, this was a crime
of premeditated revenge. The
thuggish three were paying
back the victim for reporting
an attempted marijuana sale in
school that same day. Yet they
all were allowed to board the
same school bus home. Loco
parents, anyone? This gives
negligence and cowardice bad
names.
And the ironic upshot in
a judicial system criticized for
incarcerating non-violent drug


users and pushers is that the
assailants may get probation.
If that's the case, then society
will serve the sentence many
times over.
Christie Strategy
Part of the Chris Christie
appeal is that aura of non-Tea
Party, non-libertarian smash-
mouth honesty that could
have traction beyond the usual
Republican suspects. Unlike
Charlie Crist, the New Jersey
governor looks like a Republi-
can who can more than survive
a Barack Obama man-hug. He
embraced pragmatism and he
embraced gratitude on behalf of
his Sandy-blindsided constitu-
ents and hell not apologize
for the unapologizeable. Next
question. His political persona
has the ring of authenticity in
the context of ideologues, red-
meat panderers and hard-core
Obama-haters.
What's intriguing, however,
is the calculating, by-the-num-
bers, pre-campaign prep he
seems in the throes of. He has
a 50-state fund-raising net-
work that is obviously beyond
his November 2013 gubernato-
rial re-election needs even in
Democratic New Jersey. Cur-
rent contributors include Mark
Zuckerberg, Condoleezza Rice
and Sheldon Adelson. He has
a viable Hispanics for Christie
coalition in the Garden State.
And if he is re-elected, as is ex-
pected, he becomes chairman
of the Republican Governors
Association. That would give
him political cover to travel the
country even more frequently.
Sports Shorts
The obscenely payrolled
circus that is the New York
Yankees was at the Trop last
weekend. How weird that the
Yankees are the vehicle for the
last go round for both Alex Ro-
driguez and- Mariano Rivera,
the most reviled narcissist and
the most revered player in the
game today. Not fair.
Not that it matters now,
but Rodriguez, 38, failed his
first drug test in 2003. His
Yankee tenure was tainted long
before the Biogenesis scandal.
There's $114 million left on his
contract. It's the price the Yan-
kees are paying because they
are the Yankees. Too bad.
Keith OIbermann's new
TV show, eponymously titled

Vietnam era." Many of the
participants in the program
she synthesized, called Proj-
ect Corregidor Grief & Peer
Mentor Program (Project Cor-
regidor in World War II was a
favorite reading subject for her
late son), are Vietnam veterans
who still struggle with survi-
vor's guilt and grief.
Project Corregidor, the focal
point of My Warrior's Place, is a
peer-mentoring program Kow-
all developed pairing veterans
with active-duty military mem-
bers to aid them with surviv-
ing the grief of losing friends.
In addition to developing this
program, Kowall's non-profit
purchased what is now My
Warrior's Place Retreat Cen-
ter, along Little Manatee River
in Ruskin. Survivor's families
and military members who
need to relax and reflect can
stay there for a small dona-
tion.
Kowall described the impor-
tance of these services and the
need they fulfill. "Grief is grief,
whether it's fresh or 40 years
old. Grief will wait for you until
you no longer have the energy
and fortitude to hold it at bay.
It's one of those reasons that
so many of our veterans, com-
ing back, are committing sui-


cide and are getting hooked on
drugs and alcohol. All they're
trying to do is keep grief at
bay... Healing is not the right
word for it. You never heal,
but you learn to carry it a little
bit easier so it doesn't hurt as
bad."
While Kowall's program
helps those in need to deal
with pain by focusing on the
future, she also looks toward
the program's future. "I would
like to see My Warrior's Places
all across the country, close
to military bases," she said. "I
would like them to be there to
support the veterans as well as
the military service members -
and the families who have en-
dured the loss of a fallen war-
rior. It's doable. And it would
be the greatest thing to see
that happening."
It's clear that Kowall has
pride in the military and her
son's achievements, but she
also knows he is proud of
her. "But he's not just proud
of me," she added, her voice
cracking. "He's proud of every
veteran and every military ser-
vice member in heaven... and
every Gold Star family here on
earth who has helped to make
this..." she pointed at the fa-
cilities at My Warrior's Place -
"...a reality."

SIn Context
By Doris Weatherford


I write this column on Mon-
days, and today is Monday,
August 26. Does that mean
.anything to you? It should,
especially if you are a woman.
August 26 is the anniversary
of our right to vote.
It was less than a century
ago. Depending on your age,
your grandmother or great-
grandmother was born with-
out this basic right. Our
freedom to cast a ballot was
finalized on August 261 1920,
and in 1918, the United States
won World War I, which was
billed as "the war for democ-
racy." Yet that "democracy"
legally excluded the half of the
nation born female.
Much too frequently, wom-
en's right to vote is treated in
textbooks and by teachers as
though it just fell from the sky
after the war ended. But it
was, in fact, a serious strug-
gle, the longest and most so-
phisticated political campaign
in American history.

It began on July 19, 1848,
in Seneca Falls, New York, a
farming town near the Cana-
dian border. Lucretia Mott,
a Philadelphia Quaker, had
gone there to visit her sister,
Martha Wright. (As Martha
Pelham, she once lived in
Tampa, at Fort Brooke with
her soldier husband. Mar-
rying a soldier banished her
from Quakerism, but that's
another story.)
A second reason for Mott's
trip to Seneca Falls was to see
Elizabeth Cady Stanton, whom
she had met in London in 1840
at the World Anti-Slavery Con-
vention. A few years earlier,
Queen Victoria abolished slav-
ery in the British Empire, and
abolitionists wanted to extend
that ban to America. Despite
Victoria's leadership, though,
Mott, Stanton, and other duly
elected female delegates to the
convention were banned from
the gathering because they
were women. Black men did
participate.
Mott and Stanton vowed
then to create a new move-
ment for women's rights, as
well as black rights, but moth-
erhood got in the way. Mott
had six children, and Stanton,
who was on her honeymoon
in London; eventually would
have seven. She had moved


from Boston to Seneca Falls
for her husband's business
and felt terribly isolated there.
With two others, these
women ran a three-line no,-
tice in the local newspaper
that they would be holding a
meeting on women's issues.
To their great surprise, some
300 people turned up, includ-
ing many men. The resolu-
tions that they adopted aimed
at improving opportunities in
education (only one college in
the world, Ohio's Oberlin, ad-
mitted women) and in employ-
ment, inheritance, and other
areas in which discrimination
was perfectly legal. The right
to vote was an afterthought,
and that resolution was the
most intensely debated.
Nothing came of it for de-
cades but victories were won
in state laws on other matters,
especially married women's
property rights. Even on that,
however, almost three decades
later, when the nation cele-
brated its centennial in 1876
in Philadelphia and feminists
wanted visibility there, they
had to wait for Susan B. An-
thony to arrive from Roches-
ter. She was the only unmar-
ried woman among them and
thus the only one who could
rent space for a headquarters:
under Pennsylvania law, a
married woman could not sign
any contract, even one for a
few days.

Instead of the supposedly
urbane eastern cities, it was
the western frontier that first
enfranchised .women. Men
vastly outnumbered women in
the Wyoming Territory, and at
its organizational meeting in
1869, the legislature granted
women the vote and other
rights as an inducement for
them to come West. Eastern
newspapers that covered the
first election were astonished
at how well this worked out.
The Utah Territory followed
just a few weeks later, early in
1870, but that had the effect
of entangling women~s intel-
lect with their physicality a
problem that still continues,
as far too many men remain
unable to separate the two.
Utah women voted for sev-
enteen years, until Congress
removed their right as punish-
ment for male polygamy.


Women in Washington also
won and lost their enfran-
chisement, in an 1887 state
court ruling on a technicality
that overturned the legisla-
ture's decision. But the real
blow already had come in
1873, when the US Supreme
Court ruled in a Missouri case
that the 15th Amendment did
not apply to the half of the
population that was female.
That amendment had been
added to the Constitution to
assure the right to vote for
former slaves. Its language,
however, was gender neutral,
and women including black
women in atleast a dozen po-
litical jurisdictions attempted
to cast ballots. They did so in
elections in 1868, 1870, and
1872, but in 1873, the court
ruled that the amendment did
not mean what it said.
In a decision based largely
on biblical quotations, the
justices decided that women
were "citizens" in terms of
paying taxes, but not in terms
of voting. It would take an-
ofther amendment to the fed-
eral constitution to overturn
the ruling. Citing "no taxa-
tion without representation,"
several women refused to pay
taxes and allowed local gov-
ernments to confiscate their
property. In Connecticut, for
example, a sheriff seized cattle
belonging to sisters Abby and
Julia Smith but newspaper
pundits treated the "Gaston-
bury cows" as a huge joke.
At the same time that femi-
nists worked for a federal 16th
Amendment (which would be
the 19th when it eventually
came), women concentrated
on states. They lost cam-
paigns in Kansas, Nebraska,
and Michigan, but in 1893,
Colorado women won and in
1894, three were elected to the
legislature. Idaho followed in
1896, but the turn of the cen-
tury brought a long dry spell.
There are many explana-
tions for this particular ex-
ception to the so-called "Pro-
gressive Era," but they are
complex and specific to dif-
ferent .states and you'll have
to read the book. Suffice it to
say that women lost repeated
campaigns in Oregon, South
Dakota, Oklahoma and other
western states, as well as in
the only two eastern states
that put the question on the
ballot, Rhode Island and New
Hampshire.
California broke the dam in
1911 with an expensive cam-
paign that even included elec-
tric billboards. Women barely
won: if one man per precinct


had changed his mind, the
referendum would have failed.
They ran a very sophisticated
effort, even employing men
whose job were to casually en-
gage other men on the topic at
bars, barber shops, and other
male gathering places.
That victory as well as the
Democratic presidential vic-
tory in 1912 brought great
momentum. Women won in
Arizona, Kansas and Oregon
that year: For Oregon women,
this marked their sixth state-
wide campaign. In contrast,
when the Alaska Territory fol-
lowed in 1913, women's right
to vote was the first item on
the legislative agenda. As in
pioneer Wyoming, men want-
ed to attract women there, and
two legislators who lived thou-
sands of miles apart arrived
with bills that quickly passed.
Montana and Nevada fol-
lowed in 1914, and finally, in
1917, New York became the
first eastern state. By then,
every western state except
New Mexico had enfranchised
women. (To New Mexico's
credit, though, in 1922, it
would become the first state to
elect two women to statewide
office.)
Arkansas and Texas en-
franchised women for the
Democratic primary, the only
election that mattered there.
This was due to racism, and
that was another political
complexity that we'll have to
skip here. Read the book.
Oklahoma, Michigan and
South Dakota would join the
list in 1918; in South Dakota,
the victory was partially due to
another legal complexity: The
right of its many German im-
migrants to vote during World
War I. Yes, millions of men
routinely voted without both-
ering to become citizens, while
women whose heritage traced
to the Mayflower could not.
These victories finally got
congressmen to sit up and pay
attention, as 1920 would be
the first true partisan contest
for the presidency in a long
time.
Women had full voting
rights in 18 states and could
vote for president in several
others. This partial enfran-
chisement was another com-
plexity, as many states al-
lowed women to vote in some
races but not others.
Men were especially likely
to grant the vote for school
boards, with Kentucky be-
ing first in 1837. The hottest
of the partial enfranchise-
ment cases were municipal
elections, where incumbents


Thoughts in Celebration of Labor Day
Labor is prior to, and independent of, capital. Capital is only the fruit of labor, and could never have
existed if Labor had not first existed. Labor is superior to capital, and deserves much the higher
consideration1 With all their faults, trade unions have done more for humanity than any other organization
of men that ever existed. They have done .more for decency, for honesty, for education, for the better-
ment of the race, for the developing of character in men, than any other association of men.2 Every
advance in this half-century -- Social Security, civil rights, Medicare, aid to education, one after another -
came with the support and leadership of American Labor.3 It is one of the characteristics of a free and
democratic nation to have freehand independent labor unions.4
Only a fool would try to deprive working men and working women of their right to join the union of
their choice.5 If capitalism is fair then unionism must be. If men have a right to capitalize their ideas and
the resources of their country, then that implies the right of men to capitalize their labor.6 In our glorious
. fight for civil rights, we must guard against, being fooled by false slogans, as 'right-to-work.' It provides no
'rights' and no 'works.' Its purpose is to destroy labor unions and the freedom of collective bargaining...7
If you are making a decent salary in a non-union company, you owe that to the unions. One thing that
corporations do not do is give out money out of the goodness of their hearts.8 If hard work were such a
wonderful thing, surely the rich would have kept it all to themselves.9

feared women would clean up
city halls.
Illinois introduced a ,new
kind of partial enfranchise-
ment in 1913, when it granted
the vote for presidential elec-
tions. Legislators intended it
as a sop, given that the Elec-
toral College makes the real
decision on the presidency. By
1920, though, when President
Woodrow Wilson would leave
office, politicos of both parties
saw that women might make
a difference in a close election.
They no longer dared to ignore
the lobbyists from the Woman
Suffrage Association.
On January 9, 1918, Presi-
dent Wilson formally endorsed
the 19th Amendment, and the
House agreed, with a tally of
274-136 exactly the two-
thirds margin that the Con-
stitution requires. The Senate,
though, was led by Republican
Henry Cabot Lodge of Massa-
chusetts, and he behaved like
Mitch McConnell today. He
didn't believe in enfranchise-
ment anyway, but Wilson's
supportfor it made him espe-
cially determined to kill it.
Carrie Chapman Catt, the
astute woman who led the
movement in this era and be-
came the first president of the
League of Women Voters, de-
veloped a strictly non-partisan
strategy. She targeted four
incumbents of both parties for
defeat in the 1918 November
elections. Feminists succeed-
ed in ousting a Republican in
Massachusetts and a Demo-
crat in Delaware, replacing
them with supporters.
The 19th Amendment final-
ly passed the Senate 66-30,
two votes over the essential
two-thirds. Although this was
a foregone conclusion after
the November election, Lodge
managed to delay the vote un-
til June 4, 1919 for reasons
I'll explain next week, when
we'll go on to the ratification
campaign. Its final victory on
August 26, 1920, is an excit-
ing story, and I'll add Florida's
role as the first to forego a vote
on it.
Meanwhile, my major book
on this is History of the Amer-
ican Suffragist Movement.
This year is its 15th anniver-
sary: I wrote it for the 150th
anniversary of Seneca Falls
in 1998. Although' no one
sends me regular royalties
for it anymore, you can find
it online. The late Geraldine
Ferraro wrote the introduc-
tion to it.
If you have bigger bucks to
spend, there's a chapter on
the vote in my Women in Amer-
ican Politics: History and Mile-
stones, published by Congres-
sional Quarterly (CQ) Press. It
won a prize from the Ameri-
can Library Association last
January, and I was surprised
when CQ chose Florida's own
Debbie Wasserman Schultz to
write its introduction.
There's so much more to
this intensely political story
that we all especially politi-
cos owe it to ourselves to
gain a sharpened understand-
ing. And by the way, I know of
August 26th celebrations-this
year in Broward, Sarasota-
Manatee, and even Okaloosa-
Walton, but not in Tampa Bay.
Can you tell me why not?


POWERFUL PRAYER
To the Holy Spirit, Holy Spirit, You
who solve all problems, who lights all
roads so that I can attain my goals.
You who give me the divine gift to
forgive and forget all evil against me
and that in all instances of my life
You are with me. I want in this short
prayer to thank you for all things and
to confirm once again that I never
want to be separated from You even
and in spite of all material illusion. I
wish to be with You in eternal glory.
Thank you for your mercy toward me
and mine. The person must say this
prayer for 3 consecutive days, after 3
days the favor requested will be
granted everrif it may appear difficult
This prayer must be published im-
mediately after the favor is granted
without mentioning the favor. MLC

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 petition-
er contends warrant reversal or modifica-
tion 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-
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, Flor-
ida Statutes, is not available for this pro-
ceeding.

HI!OTITIC ABORPAY5E1M!


As we approach Labor Day
in 2013, La Gaceta honors
the tradition of great Labor
Day speeches by sharing a
few with our readers.
NVU35r
The following speech is a
text transcript of President
Franklin D. Roosevelt's labor
speech, ,delivered in Wash-
ington, D.C., on September
23, 1944, during a campaign
dinner with the International
Brotherhood of Teamsters
union. It is famously known as
"The Fala Speech," Fala being
Roosevelt's pet dog. Roosevelt
had recently been attacked
by Republican critics, who cir-
culated a story that Fala had
been left behind at the Aleu-
tian Islands and was picked
up by a Navy ship at the cost
of $20 million. He addresses
this rumor in his speech.

International Brotherhood
of Teamsters, Chauffeurs,
Warehousemen and Helpers
of America:
Well, here we are. Here we
are after four years, and what
years they have been! You
know, I -am actually four years
older, which is a fact that
seems to annoy some people.
In -fact, in the mathemati-
cal field there are millions of
Americans who are more than
eleven years older than when
we started in to clear up the
mess that was dumped in our
laps in 1933.
We all know that certain
people who make it a practice
to depreciate the accomplish-
ments of labor who even
attack labor as unpatriotic -
they keep this up usually for


three years and six months
in a row. But then, for some
strange reason they change
their tune- every four years-
just before Election Day.
When votes are at stake, they
suddenly discover that they
really love labor and that they
are anxious to protect labor
from its old friends.
I got quite a laugh, for ex-
ample and I am sure that
you did when I read this
plank in the Republican plat-
form adopted at their National
Convention in Chicago last
July: "The Republican Party
accepts the purposes of the
National Labor Relations Act,
the Wage and Hour Act, the
Social Security Act and all
other Federal statutes de-
signed to promote and protect
the welfare of American work-
ing men and women, and we


promise a fair and just admin-
istration of these laws."
You know, many of the Re-
publican leaders and Con-
gressmen and candidates,
who shouted enthusiastic ap-
proval of that plank in that
Convention Hall would not
even recognize these progres-
sive laws if they met them in
broad daylight. Indeed, they
have personally spent years of
effort and energy and much
money in fighting every one
of those laws in the Congress,
and in the press, and in the
courts, ever since this Admin-
istration began to advocate
them and enact them into leg-
islation. That is a fair example
of their insincerity and of their
inconsistency.
The whole purpose of Re-
publican oratory these days
seems to be to switch labels.


Can the Old Guard pass
itself off as the New Deal? I
think not.
We have all seen many mar-
velous stunts in the circus but
no performing elephant could
turn a hand-spring without
falling fiat on his back.
I need not recount to you
the centuries of history which
have been crowded into these
four years since I saw you last.
There were some in the
Congress and out who
raised their voices against our
preparations for defense be-


The object is to persuade the
American people that. the
Democratic Party was respon-
sible for the 1929 crash and
the depression, and that the
Republican Party was respon-
sible for all social progress
under the New Deal.
Now, imitation may be the
sincerest form of flattery but
I am afraid that in this case it
is the most obvious common
or garden variety of fraud. Of
course, it is perfectly true that
there are enlightened, liberal
elements in the Republican












T^S




.j



Crayon and ink drawing
Party, and they have fought
hard and honorably to bring
the Party up to date and to
get it in step with the forward
march of American progress.
But these liberal elements
were not able to drive the Old
Guard Republicans from their
entrenched positions.

fore and after 1939 -objected
to them, raised their voices
against them as hysterical
war mongering, who cried out
against our help to the Allies
as provocative and danger-
ous. We remember the voices.
They would like to have us

forget them now. But in 1940
and 1941 -' my, it seems a
long time ago they were loud
voices. Happily they were a
minority and fortunately for
ourselves, and for the world -
they could not stop America.
' There are some politicians
who kept their heads buried
deep in the sand while the
storms of Europe and Asia
were headed our way, who
said that the lend-lease bill
"would bring an end to free
government in the United
States," and who said, "Only
hysteria entertains the idea
that Germany, Italy, or Ja-
pan contemplates war on us."
These very men are now ask-
ing the American people to
entrust to them the conduct
of our foreign policy and our
military policy.
What the Republican lead-
ers are now saying in effect is
this: "Oh, just forget what we
used to say, we have changed
our minds now we have
been reading the public opin-
ion polls about these things
and now we know what the
American people want." And
they say: "Don't leave the task
of making the peace to those


old men who first urged it
and who have already laid the
foundations for it, and who
have had to fight all of us inch
by inch during the last five
years to do it. Why, just turn
it all over to us. We'll do it so
skillfully that we won't lose
a single isolationist vote or a
single isolationist campaign
contribution."
I think there is one thing
that you know: I am too old
for that. I cannot talk out of
both sides of my mouth at the
same time.
The Government welcomes
all sincere supporters of the
cause of effective world col-
laboration in the making of a
lasting peace. Millions of Re-
publicans all over the Nation
are with us, and have been
with us, in our unshakable de-
termination to build the solid
structure of peace. And they
too will resent this campaign
talk by those who first woke
up to the facts of internation-
al life a few short months ago
when they began to study the
polls of public opinion.
Those who today have the
military responsibility for
waging this war in all parts
of the globe are not helped by


U.S. EMPLOYMENT SERVICE
WWII woman at work
the statements of men who,
without responsibility and
without the knowledge of the
facts, lecture the Chiefs of
Staff of the United States as
to the best means of dividing
our armed forces and our mil-
itary resources between the
Atlantic and Pacific, between
the Army and the Navy, and
among the commanding gen-
erals of the different theaters
of war. And I may say that
those commanding generals


are making good in a big way.
When I addressed you four
years ago, I said, "I know that
America will never be disap-
pointed in its expectation that
labor will always continue to
do its share of the job we now
face and do it patriotically and
effectively and unselfishly."
Today we know that Ameri-
ca has not been disappointed.
In his Order of the Day when
the Allied armies first landed
in Normandy two months ago,
General Eisenhower said:
"Our home fronts have given
us overwhelming superiority
in weapons and munitions of
war."
The country knows that
there is a breed of cats, luckily
not too numerous, called labor
baiters. I know that there are
labor baiters among the oppo-
sition who, instead of calling
attention to the achievements
of labor in this war, prefer to
pick on the occasional strikes
that have occurred-strikes
that have been condemned by
every responsible national la-
bor leader. I ought to say, par-
enthetically, all but one. And
that one labor leader, inciden-
tally, fi's certainly not conspic-
uous among my supporters.

Labor Day


Labor baiters forget that
at our peak American la-
bor and management have
turned out airplanes at the
rate of 109,000 a year; tanks
- 57,000 a year; combat ves-
sels 573 a year; landing ves-
sels, to get the troops ashore
- 31,000 a year; cargo ships
- 19 million tons a year and
Henry Kaiser is here tonight,.
I am glad to say; and small
arms ammunition oh, I can't
understand it, I don't believe
you can either 23 billion
rounds a year.
But a strike is news, and
generally appears in shriek-
ing headlines and, of course,
they say labor is always to
blame. The fact is that since
Pearl Harbor only one tenth
of one percent of man hours
have been lost by strikes. Can
you beat that?
But, you know, even those
candidates who burst out in
election-year affection for so-
cial legislation and for labor
in general, still think that you
ought to be good boys and
stay out of politics. And above
all, they hate to see any work-
ing man or woman contribute
a dollar bill to any wicked po-
litical party. Of course, it is
all right for large financiers
and industrialists and mo-
nopolists to contribute tens
of thousands of dollars but
their solicitude for that dollar
which the men and women in
the ranks of labor contribute
is always very touching.
They are, of course, per-
fectly willing to let you vote
- unless you happen to be a
soldier or a sailor overseas, or
a merchant seaman carrying
the munitions of war. In that
case they have made it pretty
hard for you to vote at all for
there are some political can-
didates who think that they
may have a chance of election,
if only the total vote is small
enough.
And while I am on the sub-
ject of voting, let me urge ev-
ery American citizen man
and woman to use your
sacred privilege of voting, no
matter which candidate you
expect to support. Our mil-
lions of soldiers and sailors
and merchant seamen have
been handicapped or prevent-
ed from voting by those poli-
ticians and candidates who
think that they stand to lose
by such votes. You here at
home have the freedom of the
ballot. -Irrespective of party,
you should register and vote
-this November. I think that is
a matter of plain good citizen-
ship.
Words come easily, but they
do not change the record. You
are, most of you, old enough
to remember what things were
like for labor in 1932. ,
You remember the closed
banks and the breadlines and
the starvation wages; the fore-
closures of homes and farms,
and the bankruptcies of busi-
ness; the "Hoovervilles," and
the young men and women of
the Nation facing a hopeless,
jobless future; the closed fac-
tories and mines and mills;
the ruined and abandoned
farms; the stalled railroads
and the empty docks; the
blank despair of a whole Na-
tion and the utter impotence
of the Federal Government.
You remember the long,
hard road, with its gains and
its setbacks, which we have
traveled together ever since
those days.
Now there are some politi-
cians who do not remember
that far back, and there are
some who remember but find
it convenient to forget. No, the
record is not to be washed
away that easily.

Mii TOICLBO A Y!FE IE


(Continued from page 3)
The opposition in this year
has already imported into this
campaign a very interesting
thing, because it is foreign.
They have imported the pro-
paganda technique invented
by the dictators abroad. Re-
member, a number of years
ago, there was a book, Mein
Kampf, written by Hitler him-
self.
The technique was all set
out in Hitler's book, and it
was copied by the aggressors
of Italy and Japan. According
to that technique, you should
never use a small falsehood;
always a big one, for its very
fantastic nature would make
it more credible, if only you
keep repeating it over and
over and over again.
Well, let us take some sim-
ple illustrations that come to
mind. For example, although I
rubbed my eyes when I read it,
we have been told that it was
not a Republican depression,
but a Democratic depression
from which this Nation was
saved in 1933, that this Ad-
ministration, this one today,
is responsible for all the suf-
fering and misery that the his-
tory books and the American
people have always thought
had been brought about dur-
ing the twelve ill-fated years
when the Republican Party
was in power.
Now, there is an old and
somewhat lugubrious adage
which says: "Never speak of
rope in the house of a man
who has been hanged." In
the same way, if I were a Re-
publican leader speaking to a
mixed audience, the last word
in the whole dictionary that I
think I would use is that word
depression.
You know, they pop up
all the time. For another ex-
ample, I learned, much to my
amazement, that the policy
of this Administration was to
keep men in the Army when
the war was over, because
there might be no jobs for
them in civil life.
Well, the very day that this
fantastic charge was first
made, a formal plan for the
method of speedy discharge
from the Army had already
been announced by the War
Department, a plan based
on the wishes of the soldiers
themselves.
This. callous and brazen
falsehood about demobiliza-
tion did, of course, a very sim-
ple thing. It was an effort to


stimulate fear among Ameri-
can mothers and wives and
sweethearts. And, incidental-
ly, it was hardly calculated to
bolster the morale of our sol-
diers and sailors and airmen
who are fighting our battles
all over the world.
But perhaps the most ri-
diculous of these campaign
falsifications is the one that
this Administration failed to
prepare for the war that was
coming. I doubt whether even
Goebbels would have tried
that one. For even he would
never have dared hope that
the voters of America had al-
ready forgotten that many
of the Republican leaders in
the Congress and outside the
Congress tried to thwart and
block nearly every attempt
that this Administration made
to warn our people and to arm
our Nation.
Some of them called our
50,000 airplane program
fantastic. Many of those very
same leaders who fought ev-
ery defense measure that we
proposed are still in control of
the Republican Party, look at
their names, were in control
of its National Convention in
Chicago, and would be in con-
trol of the machinery of the
Congress and of the Repub-
lican Party, in the event of a
Republican victory this fall.
These Republican leaders
have not been content with at-
tacks on me, or my wife, or on
my sons. No, not content with
that, they now include my lit-
tle dog, Fala. Well, of course, I
don't resent attacks, and my
family doesn't resent attacks,
but Fala does resent them.
You know, Fala is Scotch, and
being a Scottie, as soon as he
learned that the Republican
fiction writers in Congress
and but had concocted a story
that I had left him behind on
the Aleutian Islands and had
sent a destroyer back to find
him, at a cost to the taxpay-
ers of two or three; or eight
or twenty million dollars, his
Scotch soul was furious. He
has not been the same dog
since. I am accustomed to
hearing malicious falsehoods
about myself, such as that
old, worm-eaten chestnut
that I have represented myself
as indispensable. But I think
I have a right to resent, to
object to libelous statements
about my dog.
Well, I think we all recog-
nize the old technique. The
people of this country know

the past too well to be deceived
into forgetting. Too much is
at stake to forget. There are
tasks ahead of us which we
must now complete with the
same will and the same skill
and intelligence and devotion
that have already led us so far
along the road to victory.
There is the task of finish-
ing victoriously this most ter-
rible of all wars as speedily
as possible and with the least
cost in lives.
There is the task of setting
up international machinery to
assure that the peace, once
established, will not again be
broken.
And there is the task that
we face here at home, the task
of reconverting our economy
from the purposes of war to
the purposes of peace.
These peace-building tasks
were faced once before, nearly
a generation ago. They were
botched by a Republican ad-
ministration. That must not
happen this time. We will not
let it happen this time.
Fortunately, we do not be-
gin from scratch. Much has
been done. Much more is un-
der way. The fruits of victory
this time will not be apples
sold on street corners.
Many months ago, this Ad-
ministration set up the neces-
sary machinery for an orderly
peacetime demobilization. The
Congress has passed much
more legislation continuing
the agencies needed for de-
mobilization, with addition-
al powers to carry out their
functions.
I know that the American
people, business and labor
and agriculture, have the
same will to do for peace what
they have done for war. And
I know that they can sustain
a national income that will
assure full production and
full employment under our
democratic system of pri-
vate enterprise, with Govern-
ment encouragement and aid

know that they are America.
We must set targets and ob-
jectives for the future which
will seem impossible, like the
airplanes, to those who live in
and are weighted down by the
dead past.
We are even now organizing
the logistics of the peace, just
as Marshall and King and Ar-
nold, MacArthur, Eisenhower,
and Nimitz are organizing the
logistics of this war.
I think that the victory of
the American people and their
allies in this war will be far
more than a victory against
Fascism and Reaction and the
dead hand of despotism of the
past. The victory of the Ameri-
can people and their allies in
this war will be a victory for
democracy. It will constitute
such an affirmation of the
strength and power and vital-
ity of government by the peo-
ple as history has never before
witnessed.
And so, my friends, we have
had affirmation of the vitality
of democratic government be-
hind us, that demonstration
of its resilience and its capac-
ity for decision and for action,
we have that knowledge of our
own strength and power, we
move forward with God's help
to the greatest epoch of free
achievement by free men that
the world has ever known.

The following speech was
made by then-Governor Wood-
row Wilson during his 1912
presidential campaign. He ran
against Republican incumbent
William Howard Taft, Bull
Moose Theodore Roosevelt
and Socialist Party candidate
Eugene Debs. In this speech,
Wilson. argued against a mini-
mum wage for Owomen and
called for the end of business
monopolies. At the year's end,
he was elected president.

To look at the politics of
the day from the viewpoint
of the laboring man is not to
suggest that there is one view
proper to him, another to the
employer, another to the capi-
talist, another to the profes-
sional man, but merely that
the life of the country as a
whole may be looked at from
various points of view, and
yet be viewed as a whole. The
whole business of politics is to
bring classes together, upon
a platform of accommodation


would take occasion to bring
their wage scale as nearly as
might be down to the level of
that minimum. And it would
be very awkward for the work-
ing man to resist that process
successfully because it would
be dangerous to strike against
the authority in the Federal
government. Moreover, most
of his employers at any rate,
practically all of the most pow-
erful of them would be wards
and prot6ges of that very gov-
ernment which is the master
of us all. For no part of this
program can be discussed in-
telligently, without remember-
ing that monopoly, as handled
by it, is not to be prevented,
but accepted and regulated.
When you have thought the

and common interest. In a po-
litical campaign the voters are*
called upon to choose between
parties and leaders. Parties
and platforms and candidates
should be frankly put under
examination to see what they
will yield us by way of prog-
ress. And there are a great
many questions which the
working man may legitimately
ask and quest until he gets a
definite answer.
The predictions of the lead-
er of the new party are as
alarming as the predictions
of the various stand-patters.
He declares that he is not
troubled by the fact that a
very large amount of money
is taken out of the pockets
of the general taxpayer and
put into the pockets of par-
ticular classes that protect
his manufacturers, but that
his concern is that so little of
.this money gets into the pock-
ets of the laboring man and
so large a proportion of it into
the pockets of the employers.
I have searched his program
very thoroughly for an indi-
cation of what he expects to
do in order to see to it that a
larger proportion of this prize


money gets into the pay enve-
lope and I have found only
one suggestion. There is a
plank in the program which
speaks of establishing a mini-
mum, or a living wage, for
women workers. And I sup-
pose that we may assume that
the principle is not in the long
run meant to be confined in
its application to women only.
Perhaps we are justified in as-
suming that the third party
looks forward to the general
establishment by law of a
minimum wage.
It is very likely, I take it for
granted, that if a minimum
wage were established by law

whole thing out, therefore,
you will find that the program
of the new party legalizes mo-
nopolies and, of necessity,
subordinates working men to
them and to the plans made
by the government, both with
regard to employment, and
with regard to wages. Take
the thing as a whole, and it
looks strangely like economic
mastery over the very lives
and fortunes of those who
do the daily work of the na-
tion. And all this under the
overwhelming power and sov-
ereignty of the national gov-
ernment. What most of us
are fighting for is to break up
this very partnership between
big business and the govern-
ment.


1823 March Tampa modern history began when Mr. Robert J.
Hackley, a pioneer from New York, became the first U.S. citizen
to settle in the area now know as Tampa Bay.
1823 December- Colonels George Mercer Brooke and James
Gadsden of the United States Army were ordered to establish *
a military presence in Tampa Bay in thenewly-acquired Florida'
territory, to contain the Seminole Indians and curtail illegal activi-
ties. -

U.S. 4th Infantry Regiment from Pensacola established "Can-'-
tonment Brooke" at the mouth of the Hillsborough River, just.
about where today's Tampa Convention Center sits in Down-
town Tampa, and months later the post was officially named Fort.
Brooke.

Many Uses
This technology has been
applied to many industries
including but not limited
to construction, civil engi-
neering, industrial design,
biotech, dental and medical,
and architecture. It has been
used to fabricate jewelry and
shoes. In aerospace, compa-
nies such as Pratt & Whitney
and GE Aviation are using the
technology to make parts of

even sending a 3D printer into
space in 2014 to manufacture
small parts to keep the In-
ternational Space Station in
working order. On August 22,
NASA tested an engine using
20,000 pounds of thrust that
utilized a 3D-printed compo-
nent, a fuel injector. It was
successful.
On the home front, there is
talk of it possibly revolutioniz-
ing the medical field due to the ..
comparative ease of manufac-
turing replacement body parts
and aids that are comput-
er-modeled. For example, a
hearing aid manufactured by
a 3D printer takes less time to
make and has a better, more
precise fit fhan a tradition- A 3D printer adds horizontal "layers" to an object. The

A company called MakerBot
sells its "Replicator 2" model
online for $2,199. Staples, the
office-supply company, sells
a 3D Systems' "Cube" printer
in five colors for $1,299 on
its website. Its blurb reads,
"Straight out of the box you
can get started immediately
with the Cube's simple setup.


Just plug it in and start. The
only 3D printer certified for
safe at-home use by adults
and children." It is recom-
mended for use by designers,
small businesses, students
and children.
EMS sells a variety of these
types of printers. McConnell
said, "There are ones from 3D
Systems.. .there are the Cube
and CubeX. Those start at
about $2,000...they can range
from $2,000 to about $3,000.
Those utilize more of a plastic
type of material that's extrud-
ed through a nozzle. There are
other variations...MakerBot
and other companies have


similar ones. It's a very sim-
ple printer and you can actu-
ally print most of the parts for
the printer on the printer. At
the same time, the design is
pretty simple and not very ex-
travagant."
McConnell added his in-
put into whether this tech-
nology will become present in
the home. "As of right now, in
the public eye, you have the
smaller printers that more
recently have been available.
It has been shown that 'Hey,
you can do this in your home.'
In the future, I can see that
more people might have 3D

typically buy products from
stores, who buy their wares
from wholesalers.
With 3D printing, a de-
signer can create an origi-
nal product with very little
overhead. For example, if
you'd like to create a statue
of yourself (one 3D-printing
company, Shapeways, allows
customers to do exactly this
on its website), you can cre-
ate a two-inch model for $20.
A six-inch model can be cre-
ated for $70. If no one wants,
say, a statue of you smiling at
them when you do your initial
market research, you will lose
no money. But if you're very
popular.. .you can set up-your
own online shop with little
money down.
* The only thing that comes
betiveen the raw materi-
als and the customer is the
printer. Because of this, the
process is also very efficient to
manufacture items in a small-
er time frame. For example,
going back to hearing aids -
a traditionally-manufactured
hearing aid would take a week
to two weeks to design. With
3D printing, the process is cut
down to a day or two. In addi-

Also, when an item is fabricat-
ed in one piece, there is less
room for leakage or splitting
(versus having several joints
or hinges). These benefits are
valuable for engineering fields
where a crack or a pit in an
important component can
make the difference between
life and death.
McConnell gave a rundown
of the prices and accessibility
of various 3D printers. "Most
of the printers are available
for anyone who'd like to pur-
chase them. There are some
that are quite expensive. They
can range from your hobbyist-

can look at an item that was
manufactured 10 years ago

remain to be seen. There begin with a short history.
een talk of regulating 3D 3D printing got its start as
)rs, selling selectively to early as the mid-1980s, when
n vendors, inventor Charles W. Hull pat-
aer concerns have ented what he called "stereo-
d up in respect to the lithography." Hull came up

concerning intellectual thin layers of an ultraviolet

as sand-like resin and plastics)
that could be fabricated into
manufactured items. At pres-
ent time, the three biggest 3D
printing companies are Strata-
sys, Exone and Hull's company.
While the idea may have
been invented in the 1980s,
in recent years there has been
significant growth in the sale
of 3D printers, which has
driven the price of the tech-
nology down (similar to how
computer memory became
less expensive over time).
The general concept for 3D
printing involves few steps,
with two main pieces of hard-
ware: the computer and the
printer. A computer model is
made of the item to be manu-
factured. The model's blue-
print is then divided into "slic-
es" horizontally, which are
sent to the printer to be lay-
ered (from paper, powder or
sheet material) from a series
of cross sections. This type of
.manufacturing is described
as "additive manufacturing,"
because material is added in
order to fabricate the desired
item. In traditional manufac-
turing, materials are typically
subtracted through machin-
ing processes, such as whit-
tling, welding or cutting.
Welcome to the Fututre
While these ethical con-
cerns are still being processed,
it's clear that the technology
isn't stopping. In 2012, 3D

decade, the Patent and Trade-

THE MAN WH0 R08E FROM THE DEAD


The following story is a
chapter from The Dark Side of
Sunshine and was originally
published at www.ciqarci-
tumagazine.corn on June 30,
2011. Excerpt reprinted with
permission from the author
and Cigar City Magazine.

Gene Holloway is alive and
for the second time in his col-
orful life people are shocked to
hear it.
Yes, that Gene Holloway.
The cowboy hat- and boots-
wearing, sky diving, mountain


remember the last time he was
invited to a party, and hordes
of guests stomping upon his
pearly-white carpets is the
type of scenario that haunts
his dreams; he now makes
everyone who steps foot in his
home remove their shoes.
Yes, it is the same Gene
Holloway that once owned the
front page headlines of Tampa
Bay's daily newspapers. Yet,
he appears, to be a totally dif-
ferent Gene Holloway.
"I have not really changed
too much," argued Holloway


Then the temptation came.
Everyone suddenly wanted to
be his friend. Everyone had
their hands out and everyone
was handing him something.
It was tough temptation to re-
sist and he will admit to that.
I think his story is one that
people could learn from."
It is a story that begins
on May 1, 1937 in Sulphur
Springs, the date and place of
his birth.
Gene Holloway Growing Up
His family was poor. Real
poor. So poor that even as a

It only provided temporary
stability. His mother was
caught cheating on his father
with a soldier home from war.
His father filed for divorce
from overseas. This was a pa-
triotic time in America. The
troops were fighting for our
freedom against an enemy un-
like the world had ever seen.
Any man risking his life was
considered a hero and turning
your back on a hero while he
was still off at war was looked
down upon immensely. Not
only did the judge grant Hollo-


way's father a divorce, he also
ordered Holloway's mother to
leave the state of Florida and
never return. She was banned
from ever seeing her children
again.
Their father was still at
war, though, and their grand-
mother could not handle four
rambunctious children on her
own. His sister stayed with the
grandmother while 7-year-old

brothers were sent to live in

rags to riches story captivated

the Sea Wolf-married a former
Miss Tampa, collected dozens
upon dozens of priceless an-
tiques just to brag about.how
much money he spent, ran for
president and tried to bribe
the pope to come to dine. at
his restaurant. Yes, that Gene
Holloway. The man who at the
height of his popularity and
seemingly at the height of his
riches was accused of torch-
ing his home and then "disap-
peared" in the Gulf of Mexico
one night when he fell off his
boat in 1981. Yes, that Gene
Holloway-the man who was
pronounced dead, only to be
arrested for supposedly deal-
ing drugs in Canada a few
months later. Yes, that Gene
Holloway. If you have never
heard of Gene Holloway, ev-
erything printed above is 100
percent true. While it seems
like the plot of a blockbuster
summer movie, it is actually
the life story of a local man.
Yes, that Gene Holloway is
still alive. However, he barely
resembles the Gene Holloway
who once captivated Tampa
Bay.
His famous trademark cow-
boy attire has been retired to
a storage facility somewhere
Sin Odessa. His Kenny Rogers-
esque salt and pepper beard is
now all salt. The only antiques
he collects are those he finds
while out treasure hunting on
the coastline-some old coins,
a few meteorites and some
random items like discarded
bottles. His exotic animals are
a thing of the past. He does
not even own a goldfish. He no
longer desires to be the cen-
ter of attention. The man who
once embodied the fast-living,
extravagant, buy-everything-
you-want, party-hard lifestyle
that defined the 1970s and
1980s wants to leave that per-
son in the past. He can't even


in a subdued manner that
does not fit the abrasive per-
sonality he once showcased.
"People like to think I did all
these bad things, but the truth
is I have only been in trouble
with the law one time in my
life and it was not for doing
anything that could hurt oth-
ers. I will not say that I have
always lived my life like an an-
gel, but I have always been a
good person who wants to do
good things for people."
"My father is a classic case
of temptation," said Hollo-
way's son, Randy. "We all
like to think that we will act
purely when temptation is
thrown our way. The truth is
most of us would not be able
to resist from the start. My fa-
ther came from. nothing and

aire while still in his mid-30s.


toddler, an age in which chil-
dren should see the world
through rose-colored lenses,
Holloway knew they were
poor. Holloway's early life was
spent living in a small shack
along Route 41 near the phos-
phate pit at which his father'
worked. There were four sib-
lings in all, Holloway being
the second oldest. His sister
was the oldest and he had two
younger brothers, and they
were the only four children
they knew who did not own a
single pair of shoes.
Life was far from perfect for
the Holloways and it got even
more difficult in the 1940s
when his father enlisted in the
merchant marine to serve his
country during World War II.
With their sole .provider gone,
the Holloways moved in with
their maternal grandmother.

acres of land across the street
from Ballast Point Elementary
School. The home was owned
by a woman Holloway only

secondary to him. He want-
ed to make money. He sold
newspapers on the corner
before school and later deliv-
ered doughnuts in Sulphur


doughnuts he could eat.
He dropped out of school
during his senior year, got
married and fathered a son,
Daniel. He was making de-
cent money for a teenager,
had a beautiful bride and a
new baby. Yet, something was
missing-adventure. He had
lived his whole life in one small
section of the world and knew
there was a lot more to see. All
he had ever known were the
poor streets of Tampa Bay. He
wanted to experience life.
The Navy provided him with
the adventure he sought. He
enlisted at the age of 17 and
bid goodbye to his new family.
"He never was father of the
year," said an angry Daniel.
Holloway was stationed
aboard a ship that traveled
to such exotic destinations as
New Zealand, Australia and
Antarctica.
In New Zealand, he fell in
love with mountain climbing.
Florida is fiat, after all, so he
had never seen a mountain
in person prior to joining the
Navy. To Holloway, they were
the ultimate test of his man- '
hood, thousands of miles of
treacherous rock screaming
out to the paltry humans
upon whom they look down
on, "You are small and insig-
nificant! You cannot possibly


remeriibers as "Mother Han-
cock." She lived there with her
own children and another 20
who, like Holloway, were dis-
placed because of the war.
Bunks were stacked in two
bedrooms into which the chil-
dren crammed. And the land
was home to hundreds of hogs
and cows, animals which the
children tended.
"My father paid for us to
live there and she also made
money off the work we did,"
said Holloway. "Smart woman
I guess."
In the mornings, Hollo-
way milked the cows and fed
the pigs. By day, he attended
school. And at night, Hollo-
way's job was to rub Pond's
cold cream on Mother Han-
cock's face as all the children
listened to the radio. He was
also the home's official rat
hunter. He would set traps
throughout the home and was
paid 25 cents a rat.
"I had a different upbring-
ing," laughed Holloway. "And
at least I had shoes for a
while."
He often got into trouble;
usually boys-will-be-boys
type trouble like playing with
another child's chemistry set
against his will or sneaking
candy into his room. No, mat-
ter how innocent the crime,
the punishment was always
the same-lashes with a riding
crop.
This was Holloway's life
for five years. Then, the war
ended and his father returned
home to save Holloway and
his brothers from the chil-
dren's home. His father found
work on a dredging team. Un-
fortunately, he did not have a
home. Holloway's sister con-
tinued to live with the grand-
mother while Holloway, his
brothers, his father and his fa-
ther's new wife lived on an old
yellow school bus they used to
follow the dredging work. The
children continued to go to
school, attending whichever
one was closest to where they
parked and at night would roll
out makeshift beds of towels
onto the bus floor while his fa-
ther and step-mother slept in
a pull out bed in the back of
the bus. And Holloway again
became the child with no
shoes.
"My dad was a heavy drink-
er by that time," said Hollo-
way. "And he was not a very
responsible person. In a way,
my father is responsible for
the man I became. I looked at
him and knew I never wanted
to be like him. I wanted to be
successful."
They lived on that bus for
three years before his father
finally settled the family down
in a small home in Drew Park.
Holloway attended Oak Grove


Springs, making the long trek
to work each morning via bi-
cycle. He was a hustler and
never shied away from hard
work. Within a few months
time he became supervisor to
all the delivery boys, a job that
equaled higher pay and all the

approached a gentleman he
knew had the money to buy
the company and pitched him
on being partners. Holloway
told the moneyman that if
he bought the company, he
would run it. They would be
50/50 partners and the mon-
eyman would get rich without
ever having to do one minute
of work. The potential partner
laughed at Holloway, telling
him he was going to buy the
company for his son and that
he did not need Holloway to
make the venture successful.
Holloway did not pout or
sulk. Instead, he bid good
day and started his own food-
brokerage company, Service
Brokerage Company. Many of
his old clients went with him.
He then added a number of
new companies and after his
first year in business he was
over $70,000 richer-a lot of
money to earn in those days-
especially fpr a man who once
lived on a bus and could not
afford a pair of shoes.
Over the next few years, he
was -divorced, remarried, di-
vorced, remarried again and
then divorced again. While his
love life was chaotic, his busi-
ness was not. It continued
to surge upwards. In 1968,
he received a major break.
A new restaurant called Red
Lobster was opened in Lake-
land, Florida, and Holloway
was hired as its food broker.
Within a few years time, the
solo restaurant exploded into
175 locations and Holloway
was the broker for all of them.
His company was worth mil-
lions, which is what he got for
it when he sold it to General
Mills in the early 1970s. At
the age of 36, Gene Holloway
was a self-made millionaire.

The wedding was as color-

even collected exotic animals-

Clydesdale horses and more.
"The animals were Deb-

bought them I got into them
too. I can't lie about that. I
loved those cats."

THE MAAN WHO R0SE FROM THE DEAD


(Continued from page 14)
restaurants located through-
out the state, but none of that
made him happy. He was not
a "go-along-for-the-ride" type
of guy. He needed to be THE
man in charge. He enjoyed
the .restaurant business be-
cause he was good at it; his


black book full of seafood con-
nections from his years as a
broker meant he could find
the best deals in town. He was
tired of using his connections
to help make other people
rich, however. He was ready
to venture out on his own.
Holloway knew that each


Red Lobster was earning
close to $1 million a year. He
thought he could do better. He
thought he could open a more
successful restaurant chain
than Red Lobster. Because
of the low prices at which he
could buy seafood, he could
also sell it at a much cheaper


f restaurant's lounge area, resplendent w


price than Red Lobster, steal-
ing their business away. His
plan was to start with two res-
taurants-one in Tampa across
from Busch Gardens and one
in Lakeland-and when they
became self-sufficient expand
his empire throughout the
state and later the nation.
He called his restaurant
chain The Sea Wolf, named
after the famous Jack London
book about a hunting expe-
dition in the Bering Sea. He
read the book while stationed
in Antarctica and the under-
lying Darwinian theme of sur-
vival of the fittest spoke to
him. Considering from where
he came and what he had
done to survive, it was a fit-
ting name for the restaurant.
The decor would be just as
fitting; it told each visitor ex-
actly who Gene Holloway was-
a wild, exotic, free-spending
man living in the fast lane.
The Lakeland location was
popular, but the Tampa loca-
tion was his marquee, a home
for his wild antique collection.
As his menu once read:
From the palm-studded
parking lots adorned with or-
nate five-globe street lights,
replicas of the lights that Ted-
dy Roosevelt and the Rough
Riders rode under on their
way to embark to Cuba, to the-
hand-painted, stained and
polished beveled glass, the
Sea Wolf, like the many of the
museum pieces it contains, is
a true masterpiece.
Many authentic Louis Com-
fort Tiffany glass paintings are
featured throughout the Sea
Wolf. Truly a master of his art,
the beauty is unequaled in his
draped and plated glass. Hol-
loway owns the largest collec-
tion of Tiffany stained glass in
the world.
Personally supervising over
100,000 hours of carpentry
work that went into crafting
the Sea Wolf, Holloway de-
manded perfection from the
skilled craftsmen who created
by hand the lattice, brackets
and moldings inside.
The restaurant also fea-
tured a Steinway piano and
two 1,000-gallon aquariums.
It had widows overlooking
gardens full of peacocks, palm
trees and tropical plants. And
it had a stable of Clydesdales
that took customers from the
parking lot to the restaurant.
The Tampa Sea Wolf seated
over 500 people, yet on week-
ends it was a scramble to find
a seat. With its prime location
across from Busch Gardens,
exotic and extravagant decor,
and its delicious and afford-
able food, it quickly became
THE place to dine. In 1979, it
was listed as the eighth high-
est grossing restaurant in the
United States, pulling in over
$5 million in revenue.
Of course, the secret to the
restaurant's success was also
Holloway himself. Many peo-
ple dined at the restaurant as
much for the chance encoun-
ter of meeting him as they did
for the food and decor. Hol-
loway said he was well aware
that personal fame could pro-
pel the restaurant to grander
heights, so he continued to
seek out ways to make the
headlines-national headlines.
Gene Holloway Runs

Sometime in 1979 or 1980,
Holloway said, he heard mur-
murings that his employees
Were talking about unioniz-
ing. A professor at USF put
them up to it. The professor
thought it would make for an
interesting social experiment
- watching students form a
union. A number of his stu-
dents worked at the restau-
rant and he told them that the
backbone of America's work-
force was the unions. If the
employees ever expected to be
fairly compensated for their-
work, the professor told his
students, they needed to join
together as one. Together we
stand, united we fall!
The union fell.
STwelve students made
up the pro-union team. Sea
Wolf had over 150 employees,
though. In order to unionize,
the students needed to con-
vince the rest of the employ-
ees to vote yes. This was a
tall order. All the employees
loved working for Gene Hollo-
way. He treated them all well.
They also feared him. He was
so controlling that when he
heard rumors of employees
stealing food, he installed a
permanent lie detector test in
the restaurant that he used
on any suspects. Holloway
was not a man employees
wanted to cross.
The 12 students' plan was
to win over their fellow em-
ployees by showing them that
the community supported
them. The students planned
a rally across the street from
the restaurant and invited
friends, colleagues .and pro-
union advocates. If they could
garner enough. attention and
make unionizing the rich-
est restaurant in Tampa a
citywide issue, perhaps they
could swing the other employ-
ees to their side.
Holloway, however, was
tipped off to the effort and
decided to steal their thun-
der. He organized a carnival
in his parking lot on the same
day as the rally. He brought a
host of his exotic animals to
the parking lot, carnival rides
and a day's worth of live en-
tertainment, including him-
self wrestling a bear! Those
dining at the restaurant could
not see the picketing employ-
ees across the street through
the thick circus crowd and
those driving by paid the pick-
eters no mind. How could they
notice people with signs when
cougars were roaming about?
The rally never got the at-
tention it needed and the
restaurant employees voted
against unionizing. Holloway
won.
"It was a brilliant plan,"

"A Place for Us":


A History of the Cuban Civic Club (Club Civico Cubano)


In a city known for having
many historic social clubs,
such as the Cuban Club (es-
tablished in 1902), the Ital-
ian Club (1894), the Centro
Asturiano (1902), the Young
Men's Hebrew Association
(1906) and the German-Amer-
ican Club (1901), the Cuban
Civic Club is still regarded
as "the new kid on the block"
even though it will soon cel-
ebrate its first half-century.
The Cuban Civic Club,
in its beginnings, had mod-
est facilities and consisted of
merely a trailer and an office.
There were two tables, so its
patrons could play dominoes,
a popular pastime of their
home country.
However, according to Ma-
ria Zierra, there was no main
building...or chairs. "My hus-
band and daughter used to
come and play tennis while I
would sit in one of the little
trailers...we didn't have seats;
we didn't have anything. It
was just the grounds and the
tennis court. And that's how it
started." Current club leader,
Nilda Plasencia, chimed in:
"It started as a small, Cuban
group of people playing domi-
noes. Then they all came to-
gether and built the building."
Zierra, now 72, has been
a member of the Cuban Civic
Club since her family came
to Tampa in 1973. She still
possesses a laminated mem-
bership card from 1977. She
is member 399; back then,
the club had approximately
500 members. The signature
of one o0 the club's founders,
Dr. Enrique Jova, appears to
be freshly written on the back
of the card, preserved despite


the passing of time. "I've had it
ever since," she said proudly.
The Cuban Civic Club,
which was established in
1964, began as a small group
of Cuban exiles who came to-
gether in Tampa after fleeing
Cuba in 1959 following the
country's revolution. After
securing land for a building,
which was completed in 1977
with the club's own funds, the
site became "a place for us,"
as Zierra related, where mem-
bers could play sports, enjoy
parties and leisure time, and
discuss their memories of
home. The club's motto is "Sin
Patria Pero Sin Amo" ("With-
out a Country, but Free"),
derived from a poem by Jose
Marti, world-renowned Cuban
poet and thinker.
In 1963, the genesis for the
Cuban Civic Club took root
as its future members desired
to preserve their culture and
heritage while transitioning
into the United States. Zierra
echoed that feeling in her own
words. She arrived in the U.S.
with her husband, John, and
two small daughters in 1968,
initially settling in Philadel-
phia.
In Cuba, her husband had
been a certified public ac-
countant, and she held a doc-
torate in philosophy. In the
US, the couple started from
scratch. He worked as a bank
teller, she as a factory worker.
"We visited Miami," she
remembered, having desired
to settle in an area rife with
her home's culture. "But we
needed a place for us, where
we could expand our culture
and create a little Cuba...we
could play sports and talk

about Cuba, our country.
Even though I have been in
this country since 1968, my
country is Cuba. My second
country is the United States.
But I appreciate a lot of every-
thing that has' happened in
this country and how much
the people have': helped me to
grow and to develop my fam-
ily."
She added, "I have two girls.
One came from Cuba when
she was seven. Both have
master's degrees and work
for the Hillsborough County
School System. I'm proud that
we started with nothing and
we built them up. They also
kept our culture, which pleas-
es me. We didn't want to be
assimilated by a culture. We


want to give richness to the
culture of where we are. If we
are here, we should give what
we know and what we are to
this country."
In that spirit of transition-
ing yet preserving culture and
language, the club flourished.
In 1964, the Cuban Civic Club
was incorporated as a non-
profit organization registered
with the Secretary of State in
Tallahassee. The club's first
president was Dr. Jova, whose
signature is on Zierra's mem-
bership card.
Another indispensable
member in the club's early
days was Manuel J. Alay6n,
who is regarded as the club's
founder.. He served as the
club's president from 1964 to


1965 and held a second term
from 1970 to 1977. Under his
second term, the club's build-
ing was finally completed. He
is immortalized for his efforts
in a bust decorating the build-
ing's interior.
Juan del Cueto took over
the reins from Alay6n: in the
mid-1960s, serving as the
club's president. In a 2012
Tampa Bay Times article, del
Cueto underscored the, desire
for a meeting place: "We not
only missed our country, we
missed our food and culture."
He also related why the group
didn't join the already-exist-
ing El Circulo Cubano (Cu-
ban Club) in Ybor City. "Most
of the members of that [Ybor]

(Continued from page 17)
club were Cubans who had
been living here a long time,
and they had a different im-
pression of Fidel Castro," he
explained.
But the man who was in-
strumental in securing the
property for the club was
Mayor Dick Greco, who was in
office from 1967 to 1974.
The former mayor related
the story of how the club came
to have its own land. "We gave
one of the Cubans who had
been an engineer in his home
country a job with the City...
he had vast experience. One
day, he and a number of Cu-
bans wanted to see me. They
wanted to build a civic club.
These people didn't have mon-
ey. They only had what little
they'd brought. The strange
thing was they said they
didn't want it for free. They
- wanted to buy it. I don't even
remember what the price tag
was," Greco remembered with
a smile. "Most other clubs in
town who wanted to build a
clubhouse, they wanted the
City to give it to them, be-
cause it was a good cause."
Plasencia, who lived in Mi-
ami at the time, heard about
the effort to build the club all
the way down in her city. "I
heard about the history of the
club. There was a party...in-
stead of paying, they brought
bricks!" Zierra confirmed this
anecdote with a laugh: "Yes, I
was there!"
"Plasencia continued, "Some
people brought a hundred
bricks, some people brought
two bricks. Of course, this is a
brick building. They were very
creative people. They really
longed for their culture. They
had just left Cuba. They all
became very close. They built
this as a home where they
said, We're going to unite and
keep our culture."
Mayor Greco and his ad-
ministration set forth in find-
ing the determined group a
place of their own. "We found
them some land on Memo-
rial Highway and they started
building this club. And they
built a nice place! I remem-
ber going to the opening party
and they had a ball field, a
huge swimming pool and all
the kids...the normal big par-
ty Cubans like to. have. They
were so proud of having done
that, to carry the tradition of
being together and celebrating
Cuba here. I just thought, gee,
that's wonderful," he said.
SThe building was com-
pleted in 1977. The club still
boasts a softball field, a ten-
nis court and .an Olympic-
sized swimming pool with
an 'adjoined tildki bar, where
guests can mingle. Masses of
trophies line the club's front
office, giving insight into the
importance of sports to the
Cuban community. A "Tropi-
cana" .room, featuring a col-
orful painting of a showgirl,
hearkens back to the days of
the world-renowned Tropi-
cana Club in Havana, featur-
ing news clippings of famous
Cuban musicians and artists.
The club holds its happy hour
there every third Friday, pro-
viding a bit of Cuban nostal-
Sgia for its guests.
Zierra discussed the effort
to raise funds to build and
maintain the site. Like many
social clubs, the board raised
money by holding a yearly
coronation with a queen, a
court and a dance. "We had
a court with five or six kids.
My daughter was in one of
them. We raised funds with
that. We sold tickets and held
a .party. We had a dinner,
where we crowned the queen.
The queen held her title for a


whole year. Every year, we did
the same thing. We started a
presentation of young girls to
society...that was when they
were 16 years old. We had
parties where we'd present the
ladies who had just turned 16.
Thliat' continued for a while. In
the meantime, we'd have a
lot of' things going on. We'd
have different parties to raise
money." While the club long
ago ceased having debutante
balls and coronations, this
last weekend the club held its
main fundraiser, called the
Guayabera party (named after
the man's dress shirt).
Plasencia, who was chosen
to lead the club two years ago
after its previous leader, Bel-
lita Canasi, resigned, pointed
the conversation to the fu-
ture of the Cuban Civic Club.
"Everybody knows what the
Guayabera is...we have a
big party with cigars. People
dance to the music. We have
live music and it's a lot of fun.
It's our biggest fundraiser and
I'd like to see that one grow,"
she said.
Zierra also reminisced
about collaborations with a
similar club in Miami. "We had
a lot of communication with
other clubs. We went to Miami


one time...we rented a bus.
We played softball; we played
dominoes... all the sports. The
group that was here was very
good in sports as you can see,
by all the trophies that we
have. Miami would come over
here, and we would have a big
' party. It was an interchange of
culture. It was the same cul-
ture...the ones who lived in
Miami would get together with
the ones who lived in Tampa."
She added wistfully, "There is
a little piece of Cuba in here..
Entering that door brings to
my mind a lot of memories of
not only here, but my coun-
try. There are a lot of things
we do here that we did in our
country, when our country
was free."
Other than its Guayabera
party, the club also hosts a
yearly Jose Marti luncheon,
where it honors a citizen in
the community for his or her
civic work. The award the
club bestows is called "Honor
A Quien Honor Merece" (An
Honor to One Deserving).
Some of its recipients include
Simon Canasi and Dr. Daniel
Plasencia, medical director of
St. Joseph's Children's Hospi-
tal. Another recipient was del
Cueto, who passed away in.

Plasencia emphasized,
"Right now, what we want to
do is focus on just keeping the
club up and moving it forward.
We want to bring the young
people here." She added, "It's
a completely new generation.
I understand the new gen-
eration. Back then, when the
older generation came, there


was no Little League, PONY
League and Tampa was not
what it is today. These young
generations are very busy.
They were born here and they
have those idiosyncrasies.
"But they do come here. We
have one family that has three
generations active here the
Prado family, Aurelio, Pepe
and now his son, Joe. You see
Pepe out in the baseball field
and his son making an event,
bringing 300 people here.
That's what I'd like to see...
the next generations come for-
ward." The club is also avail-
able to use for special events,
such as parties and weddings.
Plasencia and Zierra both
hope the club's facilities and
events will attract a younger
generation.
Zierra added with pride, "My
father, Luis Rivas, was here
all the time. He used to play
dominoes here and he helped
to collect the money during
games. Now, my daughter,
Elizabeth, is involved." As the
Cuban Civic Club, "the new
kid on the block" of Tampa's
social clubs, approaches its
50th year, its members intend
to -see it continue preserving
and championing their coun-
try's heritage.

an attempt on his life by cer-
tain individuals who wished
him dead.
"Yeah, a lot of people think
I burned that house," said
Holloway. "But I was not there
when it started. I was real
drunk that night, too drunk
to drive, so a few of my friends
picked me up and drove me
[to my Lakeland home]. Some-
how, that building blew up
that night. Not sure how."
Investigators at the time
were positive that Holloway
did it and vowed to bring him
to justice for arson.
This was just one of many
problems Holloway was facing
at the time.
According to investigators,
he was in debt up to $4 mil-
lion. He was earning good
money off the restaurants but
he was spending more.
In 1980, he sold his Lake-
land restaurant for, according
to Zapone, $250,000. Zapone
said he made the deal for Hol-
loway and then helped his
friend secure a $210,000 loan
from Second National Bank,
using stock as collateral. He
then began putting out feelers
for the Tampa restaurant. Za-
pone said he was negotiating
with Busch Gardens to sell it
for $2.5 million.
In addition, an anonymous
source said that Holloway's
life was in danger. The source
said that Holloway's good
friend Jeff Series had been
sentenced to up to 20 years
in prison and asked Holloway
to hide $750,000 for him. The
source explained that Hollo-
way thought he could spend
the money on the restaurant
and have plenty of time to
earn it back, but Series was
released after only two or three
years and was angry when he
learned that Holloway did not
have his money.
"Series was the type of guy
who would just as soon kill
you as look at you," said the
anonymous source. "Gene
was scared."
Holloway admitted that his
life was in danger, but he fin-
gered a different culprit Deb-
bie Ponton.
He said that during hap-
pier marital times he took out
a $10 million insurance policy
on his life that he put in her
name rather than his for tax
reasons, which meant only
she could cancel it. He made
the payments each month,
but after she filed for divorce
he said he stopped mak-
ing payments on the policy;
it was the only way he could
get it cancelled. He said that
Debbie found out and she
and her brother resumed the
payments. Holloway said that
soon after the paymrients were
taken over, someone put out
a hit on his life with Jimmy
Donofrio, a well-connected
and feared man. He does not
know if Debbie was behind.
the scheme, but he believes
the hit had to do with the in-
surance policy.
Holloway has been telling
this story for years. Both his
sons echo this tale, as does
the transcription of an inter-
view he did with the Univer-
sity of South Florida's Special
Collections Department in
2002.


He was in debt, there were
threats on his life and he had
a pending divorce case that he
knew was going to be costly.
He was ready to disappear.
In the summer of 1981,
Holloway took out a new $16
million life insurance policy,
this one listing an ex-r-Afe as
the beneficiary. Then, in a
lease-purchase agreement,
he handed over ownership
of Tampa's Sea Wolf to Rob-
ert Dourney. Zapone said he
sold it for $1.50,000 down and
payments over the years that
would total $750,000.
"Busch Gardens would not
budge on the deal we wanted,"
explained Zapone. "I think we
could have gotten more mon-
ey, but Gene wanted to take
this deal. Looking back, it is
obvious why he was in a hurry
to sell."
The deal was finalized on
September 2, 1981, a day
in which Holloway was on a
week-long pleasure cruise
in the Keys with a group of
friends.
On September 4, 1981,
the other passengers aboard
the 44-foot trawler called the
Coast Guard and claimed
that Holloway had stepped
out onto the deck for air that
night, tripped and fell into the
water. His boat mates later
told investigators that they
tried to save him by throwing
him a lifeline, but it was all for
naught; before he could reach
the tube he was swept away
by the turbulent waters of the
gulf, six miles south of the
Upper Matecumbe Key. The
Coast Guard searched for his
body for days with no luck.
Without a body, even though
he was pronounced dead, the
insurance company would not
allow Debbie to collect on the
life insurance policy, a fact of
which Holloway proudly stat-
ed he was aware.
The Coast Guard couldn't
find the body for an obvious
reason. Holloway was not re-
ally dead.
Zapone was freaking out
when he heard of Holloway's
death. Holloway had never
told Zapone he was faking his
death, but Zapone knew it had
to be a hoax and he knew it
was only a matter of time be-
fore investigators learned that
he helped Holloway secure a
loan and sell his two restau-
rants, money he said that
Holloway obviously needed in
order to disappear. He said
he felt it was only a matter of
time before the police called
him, so he beat them to the
punch and called them. With-
in hours of hearing the news
of Holloway's "death" he went
to the police and told them
that he believed Holloway was
still alive.
Police told him that he
had not" provided them with
any breaking news. They also
knew it was a hoax and asked
Zapone if they could tap his
phone in case Holloway called.
He agreed.
"I was covering my own
ass," said Zapone. "I was not
going to jail. I was innocent
but you never know how a
court will rule."
