Rick Casares, 82, Tampa's home- "
grown football legend, passed i '.
away on Friday; September 13.
He excelled as a Jefferson High t
Dragon in not only football, but
also in basketball, baseball, and
track and field. An all-state basket-
ball and football player, he helped
propel the Dragons to win the
football city championship in 1948
and 1949.
After graduating from Jefferson
he received an athletic scholarship
to the University of Florida (UF).
He played fullback for the Gators
from 1951 to 1953. In this photo,
Casares consults with Bob Wood-
ruff, who was then UF's head
football coach. One highlight of
his (and Woodruff's) college
football career involved UF
scoring its first bowl victory at the
Gator Bowl on January 1, 1953.
Casares made the game's first
touchdown and kicked two extra
points, leading the Gators to
defeat Tulsa 14-13.
In 1955, Casares was drafted by
the Chicago Bears. His record of
being the team's all-time leading
rusher went unbeaten for two
decades. In 1966, he retired from
the game after briefly playing for
the Washington Redskins and the --
Miami Dolphins. He returned to
his hometown and engaged in.
various business ventures, but his
legend lived on.
His former teammate Mike
Ditka, who eulogized him at his
memorial service on Wednesday,
called him "the toughest player I
ever knew."

Copa Airlines abre rutas hacia el continent:

vuelos director Tampa-Panama desde diciembre


Por Manuela Ball-Camurdan
El acelerado crecimiento de
la bahia de Tampa, el conside-
rable flujo de negocios efectua-
do en la ciudad, el agradable
clima, las numerosas atraccio-
nes turisticas y el crecinrien-
to de la poblaci6n latina, han
repercutido en un aumento
significativo del turismo en ge-
neral. Tampa, considerada por
muchos como una atractiva
"mina de.oro", ha despertado el
interns de numerous empresas e
inversionistas.
En el Ambito aeroportuario,
las autoridades del Aeropuerto
International de Tampa (TIA,
por sus siglas en ingles) han
.conseguido un contract por
un afio con la aerolinea pana-
mefia Copa, mediante el cual
se ofrece -rn vuelo director
Tampa-Panama-Tampa a par-
fir del 17 de diciembre de 2013.
Desde. mayo del 2011, las
autoridades del TIA Ulevaron a
caba un process de negocia-
ciones intensivo para ilevar a
cabo. dicho contrato con el fin
de ofrecer mAs destinos y mas
frecuencia de vuelos para los
viajeros, especialmente para
la creciente poblaci6n hispana
que mantiene lazos con el resto
del continent americano. No
obstante, en ese entonces, los
ejecutivos de Copa no tenian
interns en agregar mas rutas
en el estado de Florida. Cabe
destacar que alrededor de 17
millones de personas transitan
anualmente por el TIA desde y
hacia 74 destines nacionales
e internacionales. Se, estima
asimismo que alrededor de 5.3
millones de personas que resi-
den en la region de Tampa tie-
nen vinculos con America Lati-
nay el Caribe.
"Este es el resultado de una
gran labor, realizada gracias al
esfuerzo de muchas personas
(...) El gran equipo del Aero-
puerto Intemacional de Tampa,.
dirigido por Joe Lopano, se de-
dic6 a conseguir sin descanso
este logro", afirm6 el alcalde de
Tampa Bob Buckhorn, quien
fue parte de la delegaci6n que
Ssostuvo conversaciones con la
aerolinea por dos afios y medio.
Cuando el volume de pasa-
jeros de los dos Oltimos aflIos se

parado a una tasa de creci-
miento de apenas 4.4% los dos
afios anteriores -, el mercado
que ofrece TIA comenz6 a ser
much mas atractivo para el
plan de negocios de. la aeroli-
nea. panamefia. "Cuandb em-
pezamos esta jornada 6ramos

Ahora, no solamente somos la


A partir del 17 de diciembre de 2013, Copa Airlines

Panama. Desde alli, los pasajeros podran hacer escalas
directs hacia numerosas ciudades de Latinoamerica.

Panama y Pedro Heilbron, president de Copa Airlines.


ciudad del 'si podemos' sino so-
mos la ciudad 'estemos atentos
a ella'. Vamos en subida y no
nos detendremos", acot6 Joe
Lopano, director del TIA.
En referencia al atractivo de
Tampa como destino turistico,
Ernesto Orillac, viceministro
de turismo de PanamA, nos
coment6, el pasado viemrnes en
-las instalaciones del TIA, que
-"el area de Tampa es muy bue-
na. Creo que va a ser un punto
de conexi6n de toda la region
hacia Panama y hacia toda La-
tinoamerica. Esta nueva ruta
[haciendo escala en Panama]
va ser una verdadera apei-tura
hacia Latinoamerica".
Orillac afirm6 ademAs que el
modelo de negocios de Copa es
inico porque PanamA, por su
ubicaci6n geografica, es una
important red de rutas a6-
reas en el mundo que conecta
a toda la region del continent
americano.
Al preguntarle cuhles son
las ventajas para los tampe-
fios de volar via Panama, Ori-
llac asever6: "Primero que todo,
la conectividad. Vas a tener la
posibilidad de conectarte desde
Tampa a cualquier destino en
toda la region latinoamericana
a traves de PanamA. Contamos
con, la infraestructura nece-
saria para viajar en diferentes
horarios y de formna rApida. El
vuelo de Tampa a Panama es
de casi tres horas. En menos
de una hora ya hiciste la esca-
la y estAs sentado en tu avi6n,
c6modamente y con buenas ta-
rifas, hacia cualquier ciudad de


Colombia, Brasil, Chile, Peru,
el Caribe o cualquier otro lugar
de Latinoamerica". Coment6
igualmnente que abrir vuelos en
el aeropuerto de Tampa es una
ventaja para todos, dado a que
es reconocido por su comodi-
dad y eficiencia.
0,C6mo marca la diferencia
Copa en relaci6n a otras aero-
lineas?, pregunt6. A lo que Ori-
ilac asegur6 que es "una aeroli-
nea de primer nivel; solamente
la experiencia de volar en Copa
es interesante; con aviones to-
talmente nuevos, es una de las
pocas aerolineas que todavia
sirve comida .caliente,'o sirve
licores tanto en clase ejecuti-
va como en la econ6mica. Con
una puntualidad por encima
del 90%, la convierte en una
aerolinea confiable. Es tambidn
parte del Star Alliance que acu-
mula millas al viajar y los nive-
les premier".
oAI viajar con Copa, serAn
los precious mas accesibles
que los actuales?, inquiri. El
viceministro de turismo pana-
mefio afiadi6: "Se van a abara-
tar los costs; no tengo duda
de esto. Se van a abrir rutas
much mAs rentables que van
a hacer que esos precious sean
much mAs accesibles. Conta-'
mos con las infraestructuras,
los equipos que ya estdn ope-
rando, ademAs de la comodi-
dad de los dos aeropuertos en
Panama donde van a Ulegar los
pasajeros".
4Los pajeros deberan pa-
sar por Inmigraci6n o adua-
nas? "Para conectar no hay
que pasar ni por inmigraci6n
ni por aduanas, la conexi6n es
direct, sales de una puerta de
embarque hacia otra puerta de
embarque. El turismo etnico,
que es esencialmente. el tu-
rismo latinoamericano, crece'
cada vez mAs. Hay una presen-
cia hispana cada vez mayor en
Estados Unidos y esa presencia
tiene races en Latinoamerica.
Y que mejor conectividad que


a travys de una aerolinea que
facility la apertura hacia toda
Latinoamerica desde un punto
que es la mitad del continent.
Eso es atractivo porque vas a
llegar no solamente con buenas
tarifas sino con una line area
que es excelente, y con una
conectividad que practicamen-
te no la puedes comparar con
ninguna otra", recalc6 Orillac.
Le pregunt6 asimismo a Pe-
dro Heilbron, president de la
aerolinea Copa, 4cuil es el
atractivo de Tampa para el
modelo de negocios de su
compania? "Copa tiende a
buscar como parte de nuestro
modelo de negocios ciudades
que no tengan conectividad con
nuestra region. Nosotros que-
remos que nuestro servicio sea
necesario y aporte algo a los lu-
gares donde volamos. Hay ciu-
dades que tienen much servi-
cio y no hay necesidad de un
vuelo adicional. Sin embargo,
Tampa no tiene conectividad
hacia Latinoamerica, enton-
ces es el mercado perfect que
busca Copa. Pero aunm asi, los
numeros tienen que funcionar;
tenemos que estar convencidos
de que hay suficientes merca-
do, y las autoridades del aero-


puerto, que fueron quizds los
mas activos, pudieron probar-
nos que el mercado de Tampa
era suficientemente atractivo
para los vuelos de Copa; tanto
lo que se original aqui, en cuan-
to a negocio y turismo, como
el atractivo para personas-de
Panama y Latinoamerica de
viajar hacia Tampa", precise
Heilbron.
S Tampa sera la novena ciu-
dad estadounidense en la que
la aerolinea centroamericana
estA present, cubriendo un
total de 66 destinos en el conti-
nente americano.
Detalles sobre los vuelos

En un domingo iluvioso, el

igualada de 1-1.
I USF (4-1-3) abri6 el mar-
cador a los siete minutes de
la primera parte. Con una
asistencia de la centrocampis-
ta Sarah Miller, la delantera
Sharla Passariello se desplaz6
vertiginosamente a travds de
Sla parte izquierda de la porte-
ria rival para anotar el hnico
gol para las chicas Toro. La

la igualada para las Gators

de la segunda mitad, a pesar
de Florida haber controlado
la posesi6n del bal6n en casi
todo el enfrentamiento.
S Los intentos de gol para el
equipo de Florida fueron 20,
en contrast con los 8 de USF.
Asi y todo las Gators-no pudie-
ron materializar una potential
' victoria y tuvieron que confer-
marse con la igualada. En el
minute 75 del juego, la medio-
campista de Florida Havana
Solaun anot6 el gol que nivel6
el partido. Este viemes, a las
7:30 p.m., USF se enfrentara
a South Alabama (6-0-1), otro
hueso dificil de roer.
Rowdies establecen
record con racha invicta
de nueve juegos
El 7 de septiembre, los
Tampa Bay Rowdies se ha-
bian desasido del nada da-
fino hechizo 'de los empates,
cuando derrotaron a los Caro-
lina RailHawks 3-2 en el esta-
dio Al Lang de St. Petersburg.
Pero el pasado sAbado, 14 de
septiembre cataron de nuevo
el agridulce sabor del empa-
te, cuando igualaron con los
RailHawks 2-2 en calidad de


visitantes. La mejpr noticia es
que los actuales campeones de
la NASL, con este ultimo resul-
tado, implantaron un record
para el club de nueve partidos
sin perder al hilo, rompien-
do la anterior marca estable-
cida en octubre de' 2012. En
aquella oportunidad, Tampa
Bay habia terminado la tem-
porada regular con 6 encuen-
tros al hilo sin sufrir derrota,
mientras que una victoria y un
empate en las semifinals de la
NASL extendieron el invicto a
ocho partidos. Esta vez ya son
"nueve juegos consecutivos sin
perder.


s Rowdies empatan 2-2
con los RailHawks


"Yo le he implorado a los
jugadores que debemos seguir
este compas si queremos ie-
gar al Soccer Bowl", declare el
entrenador de los Rowdies Ric-
ky Hill al finalizar el partido.
"Aunque estos resultados son
positives, personalmente me
hubiera gustado haber ganado
mas juegos durante nuestra
racha actual", agreg6 Hill.
En este ultimo partido con-
tra los RailHawks, Tampa Bay
marchaba debajo 0-1 en la pri-
mera mitad. Dos goles en un
lapso de tres minutes pusieron
a los Rowdies arriba 2-1 con
tan s6lo 15 minutes por finali-
zar el encuentro. En el minute
90, Austin Da Luz anot6 el gol
del empate para Carolina. El

Si es cierto que el debut de

regular de ffitbol americano en
el neoyorquino Estadio Metli-
fe contra los Jets, el sabado 7
de septiembre, tuvo gustillo a
mala suerte para los de Tam-
pa, al perder por la minima
17-18, la historic este sabado
ante los Saints tuvo un matiz
similar, cuando Garrett Hart-
ley convirti6 un gol de campo
al casi agotarse el tiempo re-
glamentario del partido, para
que los Saints de Nueva Or-
leans prevalecieran el domingo
16-14 sobre los Buccaneers de
Tampa Bay.
Drew Brees supo sobrepo-
nerse despues de ver inter-
ceptado uno de sus pases, en
una jugada en que Tampa Bay
movi6 la pelota a la zona ano-
tadora para pasar al frente. El
quarterback de los Saints com-
plet6 tres phases seguidos para
un advance de 54 yards, lo que
situ6 a los de Nueva Orleans
(2-0) en posici6n de hacer el
gol de campo e imponerse en
el partido. Brees complete 26
de 46 envios para 322 yards,
si bien fue capturado en cuatro
ocasiones, y- los Bucaneros le
interceptaron dos de sus lan-
zamrnientos.
Esta es la segunda ocasi6n
en que los Bucs (0-2) pierden
por un gol de campo en los Wl-
timos segundos. eMala suerte?
El linebacker Mason Foster
anot6 tras interceptar un pase
y devolver el bal6n 85 yards,
para mover los numeros en el
pizarr6n 14-13. Rian Lindell
no pudo concretar un intent
de gol de campo de 46 yards,
un minuto despues, lo que dio
a Brees una oportunidad mAs
de concretar-el triunfo para los
Saints. Tampa hizo honor a
su apodo de "La ciudad de los

Siria: De c6mo el Paraiso Terrenal se

convierte en un Infierno


Por Francisco Sanchez Mufioz
Los sirios suelen decir: "An-
tes de ser musulmanes, cris-
tianos, judios o drusos, todos
eramos sirios'". Y no hay duda
de que es una gran verdad si
echamos un vistazo a la historic
de la region desde los origenes
de la civilizaci6n.
Situada en la encrucijada
geogrdfica que conecta a Eu-
ropa, Africa y Asia, y ruta co-
mercial desde antaio, la Gran
Siria fue tierra compartida
por drabes, filisteos, judios,
arameos y amorreos en los tiem-
pos en que el Antiguo Egipto y
Mesopotamia se disputaban la
hegemonia del Antiguo Oriente
Medio. La tolerancia, la diver-
sidad y el cosmopolitismo de
estos pueblos semitas fue una
necesidad cultural para hacer
possible la convivencia durante
miles de aios, y de ella se deriva
la cultural de la hospitalidad que
actualmente les caracteriza.
Antes de la Primera Guerra
Mundial, SBilad al Chain', territo-
rio donde el Antiguo Testamento
situaba el paraiso terrenal, se
extendia desde -las fronteras
de la actual Turqula hasta las
de Arabia Saudita, y desde el
Sinai al rio Eufrates. Bajo el
dominion del Imperio Otomano,
estaba formada por ciudades
y pueblos interconfesionales e
interetnicos, en los que comu-
nidades humans de diferentes
religiones y etnias convivian
pacificamente desde las ualtimas
cruzadas.
Aunque actualmente pu-
eda parecer parad6jico, las
comunidades crisfianas yjudias
gozaban de gran importancia
political, econ6mica y social
en toda la region, y eran muy
respetadas en ciudades mile-
narias de mayoria musulmana
como Damasco, Alepb y Bagdad.
Compartian todas ellas una cul-
tura semita y hablaban arabe,
y los musulmanes recordaban
que sus antepasados habian
sido judios y cristianos que se
habian convertido al Islam a
partir de los siglos VII y VIII,
de tal manera que todos se
consideraban pertenecientes a
la misma etinia semita y fieles
a alguna de las tres religiones
monoteistas de los libros sagra-
dos. La convivencia fue general-
mente pacifica y se caracteriz6
por la tolerancia reciproca y la
ausencia de cualquier tipo de
extremism religioso.
El Tratado de Sykes-Picot,
concluido en secret el 16 de
mayo de 1916 en plena Primera
Guerra Mundial, marca el inicio
de la political neo-imperialista en
Oriente Medio, "permitiendo" a
Gran Bretafia y Francia divi-
dirse los territories. del Oriente
Pr6ximo tras la contienda, y cre-
ando cuatro estados; Siria, Li-
bano, Transjordaniay Palestina.

La version cubana de


"El Lago de los cisnes"


El cuerpo de bale del Ballet I
La semana pasada escribi-
mos sobre la pelicula "Black
Swam (Cisne negro)", dirigida
por Darren Aronofsky- y pro-
tagonizada por Natalie Port-
man. Documentdndonos en
*el cldsico que le sirvi6 de pre-
texto, o inspiraci6n, relatamos
a grandes rasgos la trama de
"El lago de los cisnes".
Esta semana abordaremos
la interesante conexi6n de esta
obra con el Ballet Nacional de
Cuba y Alicia Alonso, una de
las mas grandes bailarinas de
todos los tiempos, destacada
maestray core6grafa bajo cuyo
cuidado se han formado varias
generaciones de grandes baila-
rinas y bailarines tanto cuba-
nos como de otras latitudes.
En la Mayor de las Antillas,
la creadora de la dualidad
Odette-Odile cisne blanco y
:., cisne negro fue Alicia Alonso,
6 cuando todavia era estudiante
de danza cldsica: Su professor,
el ucraniano Nicolai Yavorski,
Sel primer director de la Escuela
-_deBallet.de la Sociedad Pro-
,Atrte& Musical de La Habana,
Sfundada. en 1931, coreografi6
especialmente para ella una
version de "El-lago delos cis-
,ries",'; cuyo estreno fue el 10
*;de mayo.de. 1937, en el:Teatro
Auditorium en la actualidad
Amadeo Rold&n junto a los
alumnos de- Pro-Arte. En esa
funci6nla Alonso tuvo como
partenaire al bailarin invitado
Robert. Belsky,. de los Ballets
Rusos de Montecarlo,. quien
bail6 bajo el pseud6nimo de
Emilio Laurens.
... La gran. bailarina cubana,
,.despues de su estreno en el
* ol en calidad de alumna en
1-937, tuvo: que esperar a 1940
Spara bailar por primera vez
,profesionalmente el pas de
trois del primer acto, junto a
la legendaria NoraKaye, y Leon
Danielian, en el mismo aflo
cuando el neoyorquino Ballet
Theatre exhal6 su primer sus-
piro como compafiia. Cuatro
afios despues, en 1944, Alicia
se puso el emplumado niveo
.tutu de Odette, en el grand pas
de deux del segundo acto; y ya
para 1948 usaba el atuendo
del cisne negro, para comenzar
a escribir su propia leyenda
mientras ejecutada las celebres
irrepetibles "6" pirouettes de
la variaci6n, y los encentrados
32 fouettds de la coda, en la
version que entonces hacia
el Ballet Theatre, junto a Igor
Youskevitch.
En cuanto a representa-
ciones en Cuba de "El lago de
los cisnes", el 21 de marzo de
1941, los Ballets Rusos del
Coronel de Basil llev6 a escena,
igualmente en el Auditorium,
el segundo acto, protagonizado
por Irina Bar6nova y Paul
Petrov. A partir de su primera
puesta en escena el 28 de
octubre de 1948 el Ballet
Nacional de Cuba incorpor6
el segundo acto de "El lago de


los cisnes" a su repertorio, con
Alicia Alonso e Igor Youskevich
en los papeles de Odette y
Siegfried.
Esa misma temporada, el
31 de octubre, la prestigiosa
pareja interpret el pas de deux
del tercer acto, conocido como
"El cisne negro". Youskevich
habia iniciado a partir de
1946 una carrera brillante en
el American Ballet Theatre de
Nueva York. Su estilo fue tem-
pranamente identificado con
el del danes Erik Bruhn, c6-
lebre por su fuerza dramdtica
y pureza interpretativa. En la
segunda mitad de los afios 40


kovski, ha ilegado a nuestros
dias modificada. Eso implica
la necesidad de un excelente
trabajo de reconstrucci6n
del original, -una esmerada
recreaci6n del estilo y de los
modos expresivos de la 6poca
en que fue ideado.
La Alonso, como parte de
su esfuerzo por reponer los
grandes clsicos dentro del
repertorio del Ballet Nacio-
nal de Cuba, ha mantenido
una esmerada constancia en
la recreaci6n de este ballet,
retomando elements origi-
nales, haciendo 6nfasis en
la credibilidad y fidelidad a la


Alicia en su interpretaci6n del Cisne Negro ejecuta la
famosa secuencia de sautes arabesque sur-, le pointe en
penche (conocidas en el argot balletistico de la isla como
'vaquitas', o saltos sobre la punta avanzando hacia atris)


Youskevich ya era el partenaire
habitual de Alicia Alonso.
A finales de 1953, la mai-
tre y core6grafa inglesa Mary
Skeaping mont6 "El lago de
los cisnes" para el entonces
"Ballet Alicia Alonso", segin la
version de Nicolai Sergueiev, en
10 que constituy6 el estreno de
la obra en America Latina. La
premiere tuvo lugar en el teatro
Auditorium, de La Habana,
en 1954, con la Alonso, Royes
FernmAndez y Charles Dickson,
en los personajes de Odette-
Odile, el Principe Siegfried y
el hechicero von Rothbart,
respectivamente.
Entre la estela de grandes
partenaires que acompafiaron
a la Alonso, sobresalen el
bailarin britdnico de origen
irlandes Anton Dolin con
quien este humilde columnist
tuvo el honor de platicar en La
Habana de los afios setenta -,
Andrd Eglevsky, el mencionado
Yousk6vitch, John Kriza, Erick
Bruhn y Royez Fernandez, en
otras palabras, la crema de la
crema de los afnos 40 y 50 en
el olimpo de la danza clsica.

trama inicial, contrastando
los terrenales actos primero y
tercero con la atm6sfera eterea
de los llamados actos blancos.
En el primer acto, la version
de la Alonso, entire otros-recur-
sos, incorpora el metateatro"
- el teatro dentro del teatro-.
En los actos segundo y cuarto,
caracterizados por su pure-
za incorp6rea, la bailarina y
core6grafa cubana ha hecho
6nfasis en la linea recta: tridn-
gulos, diagonales y cruces en
filas. A su vez, los cisnes cuba-
nos se distinguen por las mu-
fiecas de las manos quebradas,
haciendo alusi6n a la pequefna
cabeza de la idealizada ave de
plumaje blanco, cuello largo y
elegant flexibilidad.
En la puesta en escena
antillana del pas de deux del
Cisne Negro del tercer acto
resalta un retador rigor tec-
nico, algo de esperarse en el
montaje de una divinidad del
virtuosismo tecnico como lo
fue Alicia Alonso. Un detalle
admirable en el ajuste y co-
ordinaci6n coreografica de la
representaci6n cubana es la
famosa secuencia de sautes
arabesque sur le pointe en
pench6, (conocida en el argot
balletistico de la isla como 'va-
quitas', o saltos sobre la punta


avanzando hacia atras).
El traditional cuarto acto es
sustituido en la version cubana
por un epilogo que lo enlaza
al tercero sin la necesidad de
interrupciones, lo que confiere
fluidez al desarrollo de una
trama en que el poder del amor
y el bien prevalecen sobre las
fuerzas del mal. "Se trata de
rescatar la esencia del romanti-
cismo y el clasicismo ha afir-
mado la Alonso -, haciendolos
viables para el p-dblico de hoy,
lo cual, a mijuicio, es la mejor
forma de respetar los cldsicos".
A la gran bailarina cubana,
que a pesar de su tan conocido
problema de la vista, se con-
virti6 en el alma de la llamada
escuela cubana de ballet, le
debemos el estreno como pieza'
de concerto del adagio del se-
gundo acto de "El lago de los
cisnes", creado originalmente
por Ivanov. Ese fragmento no
solia representarse de manera
aislada.
Si bien,' la Alonso, impre-
vistamente, durante una visit
en 1975 del Ballet Nacional de
Cuba al Teatro de la Opera de
Maracay, decidi6 bailarlo. "...
al ilegar alli [la Ciudad Jardin
de Venezuela] con mi compaftia
encontr6 tal entusiasmo por
verme bailar y recibi tantas
y tan carifiosas solicitudes
para que lo hiciera, que debi
buscar una soluci6n. Y esta
fue incluir, como parte del con-
cierto, el adagio del segundo
acto de "El lago de los cisne.s",
ballet que personalmente no
bailaba desde hacia cerca de
tres afios, a causa de mi re-
ciente operaci6n de los ojos...
al disponerme a bailarlo aisla-
damente, con toda la atenci6n
puesta sobre este adagio, debi
replantearme de inmediato su
interpretaci6n y resolver algu-
nos aspects que no me habian
dejado totalmente satisfecha
antes". Aquellos que tuvimos
el privilegio de ver a la Alonso,
con mas de cincuenta afios
de edad, interpreter esta joya
de tules y suspiros danzarios,
tenemos que admitir la geniali-
dad antol6gica de su interpre-
taci6n, fuera de los limits de
la concepci6n humana.
La excepcional acogida de
su interpretaci6n del adagio
del segundo acto de "El lago de
los cisnes", a una edad en que
casi todas sus contempordneas
tenian que conformarse con
mirarla desde una butaca,


Sinopsis: Un investigator
expert en inteligencia, An-
dres Vazquez, esta decidido a
ir al fondo del magnicidio de
Luis Donaldo Colosio Murrieta,
candidate del Partido Revolu-
cionario Institucional (PRI) a la
presidencia de la republica.
Sus hallazgos hacen suponer
que el asesinato fue product
de una conspiraci6n desde
el poder, contrariamente a la
version official de un asesino
solitario. Su vida y la de su
familiar corrn-en peligro, pues du-
rante su investigaci6n aparecen
asesinados various testigos claves
que contaban con informaci6n
relevant del caso.
Acerca de la pelicula
El controversial filme de Car-
los Bolado, super el mill6n de
espectadores a tres semanas de
su estreno en Mexico y recaud6
57 millones de pesos, siendo la
pelicula mexicana mas taquille-
ra del afio 2012.
La cinta es un "thriller" de
corte politico, basado en los
reports de la fiscalia especial
que investig6 el magnicidio. El
largometraje trata un tema que
marc el rumbo hist6rico del
Mexico contempordneo y es el
primer gran proyecto cinema-
togrdfico sobre el asesinato del
candidate presidential.
El estreno de la cinta sobre el
homicidio en 1994 del candidate


oblig6 a la bailarina habanera
a seguir interpretndolo en
programs de conciertos. El
tempo de la musica del ada-
gio se torn mAs lento con
el prop6sito de enfatizar la
expresiyidad romdntica entire
la princess cisne y su noble
pretendiente. "He podido ob-
servar que en los filtimos afios
ha surgido la tendencia en
algunos interpretes a incluir
este fragmento en conciertos
y a bailarlo en un tempo mas
lento, lo cual me ha hecho muy
feliz, al comprobar que mi in-
tenci6n ha sido comprendida",
ha afirmado la gran Odette
cubana al respect.
Refiriendose a su con-
cepci6n del cisne negro, la
Alonso ha confesado la intense
sensualidad que oporta el per-
sonaje a la expresi6n clsica.
Aunque aclara que "en ningun
caso Odile es unafemmefatale
a la manera hollywoodense, er-
ror en que incurren algunas in-
terpretes". Otro contrast que
pespunta con extremo refinado
cuidado en la puesta cubana
es cuando Odile-se separa
del principle con intempestiva
brusquedad, luego de experi-
mentar un compartido suspiro
de sensual finura, reafirmando
asi su condici6n malefica, al
mismo tiempo que sugiere una
cierta vulnerabilidad ante los
pronunciamientos amorosos
del noble acompafiante.
Al mismo tiempo, Odile
evoluciona paulatinamente
en su intensidad interpreta-
tiva, partiendo de una cierta
mesura, recelo arrogante en
busca de la aceptaci6n de to-
dos en la fiesta de palacio, y
especialmente de Siegfried-,
hasta desplayarse en la sinies-
tra refinada burla que sirve de
colof6n al celebre pas de deux.
La version cubana sortea el
peligro de la sobreactuaci6n
en la representaci6n de Odile,
asicomo equilibra el1 imperioso
virtuosismo tecnico que corre
siempre el riesgo de transfor-
marse en cliche circense con
los desafiantes requerimientos
Sinterpretativos del dificil papel.
Ademds procura integrar los
elegantes matices interpreta-
tivos de Odile alejdndolos de
la caricature y los aspects
efectistas -, a la tecnica y a
la m'sica de un personaje,
que segmn la muy conocedora
Alonso, tampoco es un demo-
nio puro.


Entre el reparto figura la
actriz Kate del Castillo

del Partido Revolucionario Ins-
tifucional (PRI) a la presidencia
de la repAblica, Luis Donaldo
Colosio, caus6 una gran poldmi-
ca dada la coyuntura electoral
mexicana, pues los partidos
politicos estaban en plena cam-
pafia presidential.
Su productor y guionista,
Hugo Rodriguez, explic6: "esta
producci6n es una historic fic-
ticia basada en hechos reales y
es la primera pelicula mexicana
que se estrena, en los Wltimos
20 afios, durante el verano
compitiendo con estrenos de los
studios de Hollywood".
La cinta sera transmitida sin
cortes comerciales por el canal
de cine en espafiol Cinelatino
(disponible en todos los sistemas
de cable, satelite y proveedores
de telecomunicaciones del pais),
el domingo, 29 de septiembre, a
las 11:00 de la noche.

Padre Pio: il Santo di Pietrelcina


Questo fine settimana, il
mondo celebra l'anniversario
della morte di un S9anto dei
nosti giorni, Padre Pio da Pi-
etrelcina.
Qui da noi a Tampa, ormai
da diversi anni si trova una
statua in bronzo a misura re-
ale, posta dietro la chiesa di
Most Holy Reedemer Church
e questo sabato 21 di settem-.
bre sara' celebrate una messa
davanti proprio la statua con
inizio alle ore 11.00 a.m. e
subito dopo la messa sara' of-
ferto un piccolo rinfresco.
S A tal proposito anche se
Sin tutto il mondo la gente e' a
conoscenza della vita e opera
di questo Santo, vogliamo di
seguito riportare alcuni dati
biografici edelle opera da Lui
iniziate.
Padre Pio da Pietrelcina,
al secolo Francesco Forgione,
nacque a Pietrelcina, un pic-
colo paese del beneventano,
il 25 maggio 1887. Venne al
mondo in casa di gente povera
dove il pap& Grazio Forgione
e la mamma Maria Giuseppa
Di Nunzio avevano accolto gia
altri figli. Fin dalla tenera et&
Francesco sperimentava in
se il desiderio di consacrarsi
totalmente a Dio e questo
desiderio lo distingueva dai
suoi coetanei. Tale "diversitA"
fu oggetto di osservazidne da
parte dei suoi parent e dei
suoi amici. Raccontava mam-
ma Peppa "non commetteva
nessuna mancanza, non face-
va capricci, ubbidiva sempre a
me e a suo padre, ogni mat-
tina ed ogni sera si recava
in chiesa a visitare Gesfi e la
Madqpna. Durante il giorno.
non u'sciva mai con i compag-
ni. Qualche volta gli dicevo:
"Franci esci un p6 a giocare.
Egli si rifiutava dicendo: "non
ci voglio andare perch essi
bestemmiano."
Dal diario di Padre Agostino
da San Marco in Lamis, che
fu uno dei direttori spirituali
di Padre Pio, si venne a sapere
che Padre Pio, fin dal 1892,
quando aveva solo cinque
anni, viveva gia le sue prime

esperienze carismatiche. Es-
tasi ed apparizioni erano cosi
frequent che il. bambino le
riteneva assolutamente nor-
mali.
Con il passare del tempo
pot6 realizzarsi quello che per
Francesco era il pit grande
sogno: consacrare totalmente
la vita al Signore. I 6 gennaio
1903, a sedici anni, entr6
come chierico nell'Ordine dei
Cappuccini e fu ordinato sac-
erdote nel Duomo di Beneven-
to,il 10 agbsto 1910.
Ebbe cosi inizio la sua vita
sacerdotale che a causa della
sue precarie condizioni di sa-
lute, si svolgerd dapprima in
diversi conventi del beneven-
tano, dove fra Pio fu inviato dal
suoi superior per favorite la
guarigione, poi, a partire dal 4
settembre 1916, nel convento
di San Giovanni Rotondo, sul
Gargano, dove, salvo poche e
brevi interruzioni, rimase fino
al 23 settembre 1968, giorino
della sua nascita al cielo.
In questo lungo periodo.
quando event di particolare
importanza non modificavano
la quite conventuale, Padre
Pio dava inizio alia sua gior-
nata svegliandosi prestissimo,
molto prima dell'alba, comin-
ciando con la preghiera di
preparazione alia Santa Mes-
sa. Successivamente scende-
va in chiesa per la celebra-
zione dell'Eucarestia al quale
seguivano il lungo ringrazia-
mento e la preghiera sul ma-
troneo davanti a Gest Sacra-
mentato, infine le lunghissime
confessioni.
Uno degli event che segn-
arono profondamente la vita
del Padre fu.,quello verifica-
tosi la mattina del 20 settem-
bre 1918, quando, pregando
davanti al Crocifisso del coro
della vecchia chiesina, rice-
vette il donor delle stimmate,
visibili; che rimasero aperte,
fresche e sanguinanti, per
mezzo secolo.
Questo fenomeno straordi-
nario catalizz6, su Padre Pio
l'attenizione dei medici, degli
studios, dei giornalisti ma so-


prattutto della gente comune
che, nel corso di tanti decenni
si rec6 a San Giovanni Roton-
do per incontrare il "Santo"
frate.
In una letter a Padre Bene-
detto, datata 22 ottobre 1918,
lo stesso Padre Pio racconta
della sua "crocifissione":
"...cosa dirvi di ci6 che mi
dimandate del come si & av-
venuta la mia crocifissione?
Mio Dio che confusion e che
umiliazione io provo nel do-
ver manifestare ci6 che Tu
hal operate in questa tua me-
schina creature! Era la mat-
tina del 20 dello scorso mese
(settembre) in coro, dopo la
celebrazione della Santa Mes-
sa, allorch6 venni sorpreso
dal riposo, simile ad un dolce
sonno. Tutti i sensi interni
ed esterni, non che le stesse
facoltd dell'anima si trovarono
in una quite indescrivibile.
In tutto questo vi fu total si-
lenzio intorno a me e dentro
di me; vi subentr6 subito una
gran pace ed abbandono alla
complete privazione del tutto
e una posa nella stessa rovi-
na, tutto questo awvvenne in un
baleno.. E mentre tutto questo
si andava operando; mi vidi
dinanzi un misterioso person-
aggio; simile a quello visto la
sera del 5 agosto, che differen-
ziava in questo solamente che
aveva le mani ed i piedi ed il
costato che grondava sangue.
La sua vista mi atterrisce; ci6
che sentivo in quell'istante in
me non saprei dirvelo. Mi sen-
tivo morire e sarei morto se il
Signore non fosse intervenuto
a sostenere il cuore, il quale
me lo sentivo sbalzare dal pet-
to. La vista del personiaggio si
ritira ed io mi avvidi che mani,
piedi e costato erano traforati
e grondavano sangue. Im-
maginate lo strazio che speri-
mental allora e che vado es7
perimentando continuamente
quasi tutti i giorni. La ferita
del cuore gitta assiduamente
del sangue, specie dal giovedi
a sera sino al sabato.
Padre mio, io muoio di do-
lore per lo strazio e per la con-


fusione susseguente che io
provo nel'intimo dell'anima.
Temo di morire dissanguato,
se il Signore non ascolta i
gemiti del mio povero cuore e
col ritirare da me questa oper-
azione...."
Per anni, quindi, da ogni
parte del mondo, i fedeli si
recarono da questo sacerdote
stigmatizzato, per, ottenere
la sua potente intercessione

Rick Casares, the Jefferson
Dragon who became a football
star at the University of Flor-
ida and while playing for the
Chicago Bears, died Friday,
September 13. His friend, Fer-
die Pacheco, remembers him in
the following tribute.

I know I'm getting close to
my time to leave this earth.
The absolute last of my athlet-
ic heroes has left his imprint
on my soul: Rick Casares is
dead.
Can that be true? Not su-
perhuman Rick. Not the bat-
tering Ram for the Chicago
Bears. Not the glittering, scin-
tillating star of Jefferson High
School. Not the All-American
from the University of Florida.
Not him. He was a fixture in
our lives. He had a thrilling
career, and his life was sprin-
kled with magic dust. Rick
was our hero. He could do


no wrong. I never met a man
who did not idolize him.
He let the high life pass
him by and enjoyed a con-
tented existence in his happy
marriage to the beautiful Pol-
ly. Even in older age, Rick was
high-stepping. He should've
made it to 100.
Well, goodbye old #35. I
don't know who'll take your
place in my pantheon of he-
roes. In my personal life, it
would be the whirling dervish
of boxing, Muhammad Ali.
But Ali belongs to the whole
world. Rick was ours. He was
a Tampa Banana, a Florida
Gator, and finally a Chicago
Bear. No one else came close.
So, he is gone. I'll miss him.
Well not see his likes again.
It. has been a rare privilege to
share my youth with you and
to have had you as a friend for
my entire life. Rest in peace
Rick.

Rick Casares: Last of

the Giants


RU


Polibically Wise ?


Read As We Heard It


















Once in a while, a child de-
velops into person that makes
family and friends feel truly


blessed. Eleven-year-old Ma-
son Moreno is one of those
blessings. According to Cap-
tain John (Cookie) Thomas,
Mason is an exceptional young
man in many ways. The Berk-
ley Preparatory School student
obtains good grades, is disci-
plined, plays football for his
school and loves to fish. Mason
is the son of distinguished neu-
rosurgeon Dr. Anthony Moreno
and grandson of our long-time
friend Anthony Moreno, for-
merly of Tampa and presently
of Tarpon Springs.
On a recent trip, guided by
Captain Thomas aboard Dr.
Moreno's 33' Invincible, young
Mason fished in the company of
his father and cousin Frankie
Alfano. The group traveled to
the 150-foot depth off St. Pe-
tersburg in search of grouper.
Far out from the view of
land, the Gulf offers no sign-
posts, no indicators other than
those in marine charts or elec-
tronic devices. In this foreign
world, we know of no one that
is more knowledgeable about
navigation, marine life, fishing
spots or technique than Cap-
tain "Cookie" Thomas. That ap-
parently visionless sea of noth-
ing but blue water is Captain
Thomas' domain.
After the time envisioned for
fishing by Captain Thomas was
coming to its conclusion and
during their last stop, 'young
Mason persisted in fishing that
so familiar "one more, cast"
Using a custom spinning rod
loaded with a 15 pound test
monofilament tipped with a
pink jig and a strip of bonito,
Mason dropped his bait into
the depth. Much to the surprise
of all aboard, including Cap-
tain Thomas, there was a bite
followed by a colossal struggle
that-lasted more than 15 min-
utes. "When we saw the fish
we could not believe the size of
the true black grouper," said
Captain Thomas. The enor-
Srous fish, a record for Florida
anglers under 12 years of age,
is almost an unheard of catch,
particularly in such light tackle
and monofilament line.
We received the following es-
say composed by Mason:
"Fishing"
Fishing has been a huge part
of my life since I was six years
old. I have been fishing with my
dad many different times, and
every time we have come across
a surprise. The biggest fish I
ever caught was a 90-pound
tarpon at Boca Grande Pass. It
was a slow day at first, biut then
the line darted out like a rocket
and the tarpon was jumping
and spinning out of the water.


The fight was 30 minutes' long
and it sucked the life out of me.
The fish was amazing.


I have also caught a
100-pound sailfish. That fish
took 40 minutes to reel in. He
was a beast. But I owe all of

and keeps a high morale. An-
other man who has been a huge
inspiration is Captain John
Thomas. He is one of the nic-
est men I have ever met and is
always getting me fish. "Thank
God for John," my dad is quot-
ed as saying, after catching a
cooler filled with fishk The most
memorable fish I've caught was
a 60-pound black grouper. John
said it was a fish of a lifetime,
because of how rare they are.
And that fish broke the record
for a boy under 12 in the state of
Florida. It may be in the Florida
Sportsman magazine.
I can't think of anything I like
more than having a line in the
water. The excitement of catch-
ing a fish is just incredible.
When you're fishing offshore,
50 miles out, it's a whole differ-
ent world. The birds are flying,
dolphin are jumping, sea turtles
are swimming about and there
are flying fish soaring a 'cou-
ple of feet on top of the water.
I want to be able to fish until I
physically can't anymore. Fish-
ing is my favorite thing to do.
The most rewarding fishing
is always with the youth. They
seem to have a special appre-
ciation for nature that some
adults loose as they age. It is
great to be a kid, specially, a
perfect eleven. Congratulations
to Mason, his family and Cap-
tain Thomas.

My Fir
It is with a heavy heart that
I report that this is my final La
Gaceta column.
I have decided to take a
full-time job with the Tampa
Tribune as a features writer,
meaning I must give up my
many freelance writing gigs.
Over the. past few years
working as a freelance jour-
nalist, I have written for close
to two dozen publications,
many on a regular basis.
However, this is the hardest
publication to leave.
La Gaceta was my first
newspaper employer when I
arrived in this city in 1999.
When Patrick Manteiga
hired me, he told me two
things:
1. "I don't know if you'll
work out or not. Let's just say
* this is .on a temporary basis of
a few weeks. If it doesn't work
out, at least you'll have some
cash in your pocket." (Four-
teen years later, I am just now
penning my final words for
this famed publication ... and
I still don't have any cash in
my pocket.)
2. "My father would never


lal Bow
have hired you." (He said that
with a laugh.)
I did not understand what
either statement meant. Years
later, I recounted his words
to Patrick and asked what he
meant. He had no memory of
saying any of that to me, but
did know what he probably
meant. He said he had a-gut
feeling I'd be a good fit, but
also knew he was taking a
chance on me. His father, he
explained, hired writers that
fit a certain mold a top uni-
versity on their resume and a
conservative look (despite Ro-
land being so liberal), the type
of reporter he felt comfortable
being a "face" of the newspa-
per.
I was SO not the guy. I was
an irresponsible 23-year-old
kid who graduated from an
unknown college, had been
fired from TWO newspaper
internships while a student,
and spent more time reading
beer labels than books.
I don't know of any other
publications that would have
given me a chance back then.
I had little experience. Looking


back on my articles over those
first few years, I also had little
writing ability. I still have no
idea why Patrick hired me. I
don't know what his gut said
to him. But I thank God it
said something nice.
I still don't consider myself
to be a classically good writer.
I have more flaws than most.
What I have always felt has
enabled me to succeed in this
profession is my knowledge of
Tampa. I believe few, even the
most veteran of reporters, un-
derstand the history, of Tampa
and the nuances of the mod-
em-day version more than I
do. And I owe that to Patrick.
From day one at La Gaceta, he
took me under his wing and
taught me everything he could
about the city he loves.
All my success as a writer
began with Patrick and this
paper. I can never repay him
for that.

I won't lie ... I'm scared
right now.
This is yet another major
change for me.
This is a big opportunity
for me. To finally not have to
hustle to find publications for
my articles will be a breath of
fresh air. I was tiring of the
constant grind of freelancing.
I'm terrified of failing. I am
terrified to have to go back to
that grind and the irregular
paychecks that come with it.
I am terrified that this fear
will drive me to work too hard.
I am afraid that I will spend
far too many hours outside
of my home and scared that
when I am home my mind will
be on my work rather than my
kids. I don't want to become
that man.
But I don't know how this
job will change me. Even
those who are vigilant of the
negative transformations that
may occur inside of them can
fall victim to the temptations
that cause them.


I've been lucky enough
since becoming a family man
to have the opportunity to
spend more time with my chil-
dren than most fathers. Now,
that I am part of the "real"
workforce, what will become
of me?
My columns, first The Over-
night Family Man and now My
Son Is a Jerk, have detailed
my transformation from a sin-
gle man with no responsibili-
Sties into the responsible adult
I am today ... well ... semi-
responsible. These columns
have run over the course of a
few years, but, in a way, those
who are loyal to La Gaceta
and close with the staff have
watched me grow over the
past 14 years.
I don't think there are
many people who knew me
when I first joined this news-
paper who could have ever
envisioned me one day having
four children.
Wait; let me rephrase that
I don't think there are many
people who knew me when I
first joined this newspaper
who could have ever envi-
sioned me one day having four
children of whom I know and
raise. But here I am.
Those who have known me
since I relocated to Tampa in
1999 are always commenting
on how much I have changed
over the past few years since
I met Amy. Before Amy, I was
the same man I was when I ar-
rived in this city. Since then, I
am totally different.
I am often approached in
public by La Gaceta read-
ers who comment on my col-
umns, exclaiming they can-
not believe the boy in a young
man's body they once knew
is now potty training a child,
singing lullabies, and so on.
They cannot believe that for a
while I was a stay-at-home fa-
ther. They cannot believe how
much I have changed.


I owe this maturation to
Amy. My parents raised me.
But Amy turned me into a
man. (Get your minds out
of the gutter people! I don't
mean it like that!)
Amy helped me to under-
stand what responsibility is
and how it does not have to
be a negative thing. Change
is hard, but it is not always
bad. The changes I have made
over the past few years do not
revolve around me failing.
They have always been made
because my life continues to
evolve in a positive way a
beautiful perpetual-fiancee
(well get married one day peo-
ple), four gorgeous children
and a solid career (knock on
wood).
And I am only going to
continue to change at a rapid
rate.
Amy. and I are looking at
new cars, possibly the dread-
ed mini-van. It seems like a
necessity now that we have
four kids. Such vehicles are
built to make life easier for
parents.
We are also discussing pur-
chasing a home in a year or so
- in the suburbs. I have never
lived anywhere in Tampa but
the downtown area. That will
be a BIG change for me. -
A few years from now, I will
be nothing like the man I am
today.
I wish I could continue to
share my experiences with
you all. I wish you could con-
tinue to grow with me.
I look forward to the chal-
lenge ahead. I look forward to
what life will bring, me.
Fourteen years ago, I joined
La Gaceta as a 23-year-old
kid.
I leave this newspaper as a
37-year-old man ... a father.
I'm afraid of what lies
ahead, but I11 make it through.
Thank you everyone for the
support you have provided me
over the years.

Nelson A. Italiano, Sr., the
founder of Italiano Insurance
who was known for his com-
munity involvement, passed
away on Thursday, September
12. He was 85.
Born in 1928, the Tampa
native first gained prominence
as a running back, garnering
an honorable mention as a
Little All-American while play-
ing football for' Florida State
University (FSU). A lifelong
FSU devotee, he served as area
vice president of its alumni as-
sociation and was part of the
FSU Athletic Council.. His love
of sports led him to serve on
the Tampa Sports Authority


for eight years and as sports
chairman of the Greater Tampa
Chamber of Commerce.
Following college, Italia-
Sno married his wife, Jane, in
1955. They had four children,
Nat, Jody, Terrell and Jeff.
Following a period serving as
a First Lieutenant in the United
States Air Force, he founded
the Baldwin-Italiano Insurance
Agency in 1960 with childhood
friend Walter Baldwin. In 1984,
he created Italiano Insurance,
now run by sons Nat and Jeff.
Highly involved in his chil-
dren's lives, he served as a Boy
Scouts scoutmaster for Troop
411, founded the Palma Ceia


Little League and was, also an
athletic rep and president of
the Robinson High School Par-
ents Association.,
Italiano was also known for
his involvement in politics and
the community. He served as
the chairman of Governor Reu-
bin Askew's gubernatorial cam-
paign in Hillsborough County
and also was Askew's local
political appointment chief. In
this position, Italiano reached
his zenith of political influence.
Almost all who wanted to be
appointed by the governor or
was looking for a state job in
this county went through him.
In addition, he also served
as secretary to the Florida State
Board of Business Regulation,
was a Florida Freshwater Fish
& Game commissioner, was a
foundation member of the Uni-
versity of South Florida Board
and served as a board member
of the Greater Tampa Indepen-
dent Insurance Agents Asso-
ciation. Despite encountering
legal issues, he bounced back,
working again in insurance.
A couple of the honors Ital-
iano received for his endeav-
ors included the Distinguished
American Award and the Cir-
culo Culturale Italiano of Uni-
versity of South Florida Man of
the Year Award.
He was also recognized by
the Football Hall of Fame's
Tampa Chapter.
Italiano is survived by his
wife, four children, and four
grandchildren Jamie, Nelson
III, Andrew anid E]ie. His me-
morial service was held Mon-
day, September 16, at Palma
Ceia United Methodist Church.
According to the Tampa Bay
Times, a Sunday visitation at'
the Blount & Curry Funeral
Home yielded a line that spilled
onto 'the sidewalk, as fam-
ily, colleagues and friends paid
tribute to one of Tampa's most
visible native sons.

Celebrates 80 Years

America isn't prejudiced.
A quick glimpse at social media
will reveal just how little we've
advanced over the years.
The new Miss America is Nina
Davuluri, a Syracuse, New York
native of Indian (Asia) descent. She
has black hair, brown eyes, mocha
skin and a name with too many
vowels. She's also beautiful and
well-spoken.
These are the commentss that
were on Twitter immediately after
she was crowned last weekend:
"Congratulations A1-Qaeda. Our
Miss America is one of you." Shan-
non McCann
"So miss america is a terrorist"
- Nick Pizzo
"Nice slap ,in the face to the peo-
ple of 9-11 how pathetic" Wendy
Fraser
"Miss America? You mean Miss
7-11." Cheez-it
"More like Miss Terrorist" Not
Miss America
"How the #@!% does a foreigner
wi Miss America? She is a Arab!"
- Jack Amick
"And the Arab wins Miss Amer-
ica. Classic" POOKIE
"I swear I'm not racist but this is
America." Jessica Ayres
"9/11 was 4 days ago and she gets
MissAmerica?" Luke Brasili
"Miss America, footlong buffalo
chicken on whole wheat. Please and
thank you." Colin Miller.
Many of these people feel their
comments are so mainstream and
normal that they use their own
name. The surprise isn't that much
of America is racist, it's that it's
comfortably racist.

Attorney Gil Sanchez has been
receiving a lot of media attention
due to his representation of Remee
Jo Lee, who is the victim of John
Andrew Welden. Welden caused
Remee to miscarry by intention-
ally giving her a prescription drug
used as an abortion pill, killing her
unborn child. Last week, Sanchez
and his client were on CNN.
This week, they had a press
conference to ask for support of the
Unborn Victims of Violence Act.

The Hillsborough County
Sheriff's memorials for fallen
officers and 9/11 victims were
approved by the Barrio Latino
C6omission (BLC) on Wednesday.
This was the second time the
project had gone before the BLC.
The first time, it was rejected.
The Sheriffs Office visited with
the community and addressed its
concerns. The memorial park is now
a better fit in the historic district
and approval was unanimous with
the community's support.

Congressman Joe Garcia was
in town last week and we heard
him speak of Israeli-U.S. relations,
Syria and immigration. On immi-
gration, he highlighted the need
for reform and the brain drain be-
ing caused by the current policies,
mentioning that there is a high
school in his district where every
year the valedictorian is undocu-
mented a.k~a. an illegal immigrant.
This means in his district, if the Tea
Partiers and the far right had their
way, the smartest kids our schools
produce would be deported.

The Tampa Hispanic Bar Associ-
ation will honor Judge E.J. Salcines
at its gala dinner on Thursday,
November 21, at the Italian Club.


The Bar couldn't have found any-
one more deserving than Judge E.J.
Salcines to honor. He is responsible
for more Latins finding their way
to law school than Pell Grants. He
has been an advocate and promoter
of the law profession as a career to
literally thousands of Tampefios.
The event will feature cigars,
music, art and great food, all with
a Latin flair. The guest speaker is
the first Cuban-born president of
the Florida Bar, Frank Angones.
The cost is $85 a ticket for non-
members and $65 for members. The
Tampa Hispanic Bar is also looking
for sponsors.

order tickets.

Our friend Ralph Lazzara, III
had two tumors removed on Mon-
day. We pray for a quick recovery.

Hillsborough County Public
Schools Superintendent MaryEllen
Elia just received her lowest score
on her yearly evaluation since she's
had the job.
Two School Board members,
April Griffin and Susan Valdes,
gave her a 9, which is the lowest
*score possible. Griffin, who is chair,
wrote that she would give a zero if
it was an option.
Cindy Stuart gave the superin-
tendent a 29, which is also a low
score. Stacy White, Carol Kurdell,
Doretha Edgecomb and Candy
Olson offered 39s and a 40. The
highest possible score is 45.
At a glance, you'd wonder if it
was an evaluation of Dr. Jekyll and
Mr. Hyde.
Griffin's comments were sting-
ing. She expressed a lack-of confi-
dence in Elia's ability to "lead the
district forward."
She focused on a couple of major
incidents when writing, "Following
the death of Isabella- Herrera, you
failed to notify the Board and the
public of the tragedy and denied
knowledge [of the] situation. There
was no official investigation and
report. This is unacceptable. The
Board was not made aware of this
issue until a press conference was
held at which point Jenny Cabal-
lero had also lost her life while in
our care.
"Your subsequent handling of
these two horrible tragedies was
appalling and beyond conscience.
These two tragedies where two
children lost their lives and fami-
lies were forever changed, was a
turning point for me and made me
see your leadership in a whole new
light."
She pointed out Elia was "slow
to recognize the magnitude of the
issues" and that staff members
were fired and demoted while the
management involved was "later-
ally transferred."
There are several mentions of
leadership issues and employee
relations. Griffin accuses Elia of
having a "lack of empathy for the
employees in the trenches" and that
her leadership style is "oppressive,
autocratic and unyielding." She
added, "It is unfortunate that your
talents are being wasted on your
fight against anyone who disagrees
with you."
Susan Valdes mentioned the
deaths in her unsatisfactory evalu-
ation and added in the bus pur-
chasing fiasco, the "Black Girls
Speak" contract that ended up with
unfunded scholarships and the in-
ability to diversify staff.
Style is definitely criticized with,


"You do not demonstrate a climate
of tolerance, acceptance and civil-
ity."
Valdes added, "I have no confi-
- dence in your ability to manage the
eighth-largest school district."
Cindy Stuart wrote in her eval-
uation that she has problems
with the way the superintendent
handled the procurement of buses,
providing equitable due process for
personnel and her attitude toward
parents and the Board.
She wrote, "The superintendent
and attorney conversation that
was caught on a live microphone
was not only unacceptable, but the
follow up to this embarrassing situ-
ation should have been a private
and public apology, not a rebuttal
to-the Board members in question."
Candy Olson scored Ms. Elia
high, yet her written comments are
critical and reflect the concerns of
Griffin, Valdes and Stuart. Here are
Olson's comments in three different
evaluation questions or standards:
"Morale needs to be addressed to
permit our progress to continue."
"I would like to see Ms. Elia more
engaged with parents, teachers and
others in the area truly hearing
concerns."
"Stakeholders feel excluded."
We know the superintendent
often brushes off criticisms as being
unfair and irrelevant.
She should not -dismiss this
evaluation, even though she has the
support of the majority. This is not
an indication of a healthy organiza-
tion. It shows there are real prob-
lems in the school district and they
are not in the classroom they're at
the headquarters downtown.

In New Hampshire's presidential
polls, Senator Marco Rubio has.
fallen by 18 percent.

Paul Anderson has been the
CEO at the Tampa Port Author-
ity for nine months. He has made
measurable changes in the culture
of the Port, but some in the Port
community are wondering if the
honeymoon should be over and he
should start to show meaningful
business gains at the Port.
The number of big ships crossing
under the Sunshine Skyway contin-
ues to shrink, but insiders feel there
are notable gains under Anderson.
We now have agreements for six
cruise ships to make Tampa their
home. That's one more than when
he got here and the most we've ever
had. The Port is making great prog-
ress in roll-on/roll-off cargo, a.k.a.
cars, with Amports investing in a
new facility. Some believe a con-
tract could be signed in the spring


with a car manufacturer. Also in
the spring, we could be handling
more food from Central America.

A study released by the U.S.
Hispanic Chamber of Commerce
reported that there will be 3.2 mil-
lion Hispanic-owned businesses
in America in 2013. That's nearly
double the 2002 number of 1.6
million.

Rick Scott was in town to take
credit for bringing 1,000 new jobs
to Tampa. The new workers will be
selling individual insurance policies
due. to the Obamacare law. Scott
gave President Barack Obama no
credit and if he had it his way, he
would get rid of Obamacare, caus-
ing the 1,000 jobs to vanish.
We wonder if the governor will
be cutting the ribbon on the open-
ing of the I-4/Selmon Expressway
Connector. It's the single biggest
road project in America funded by
the Obama stimulus money.
The governor would have also
killed that legislation if he could.

It was shocking to hear of Juan
Capin's death on Monday. He found
out only a month or so ago that
he had an aggressive form of liver
cancer. Before that, like the rest of
us, he wasn't thinking death was
so close.
Our heart goes out to his wife,
City Councilwoman Yolie Capin,
for losing her partner so suddenly.
Born in Asturias, Spain, Mr.
Capin, 67, was a Jefferson High and
USF graduate. He worked for the
City of Tampa's Model Cities pro-
gram and then went into business
with his wife in J. Capin Jewelers
for 25 years with stores at local
malls. His last pursuit was as a real
estate broker.
Capin was a good man and a de-
voted citizen of Tampa. The wake is
on Tuesday, September 24, from 6
to 10 p.m. at the Centro Asturiano.
It will be an Asturian wake, with
food, hard cider and bagpipe music.

A fish fry will be hosted for Ed
Narain, who is running for State
Representative District 61, on Sat-
urday, September 21, from noon
to 4 p.m. The event will be held at
Picture-Man Food Court/Yellow
Bus on the corner of Genesee and
22nd streets, across from the old
Middleton High School building.
A donation of $10 is suggested.

Sitting in one of his favor-
ite local haunts, Havana Vil-
lage Sandwich Shop,-' Tampa
Natives Show co-host Mario
Nufiez looked every inch a tele-
vision personality as he sipped
his cafe con leche, outfitted
sharply in a white Guayabera
accessorized with a matching
fedora.- Chatting amiably and
cracking jokes with the restau-
rant's staff in Spanish, it's clear
he was born to be
in the spotlight.
However, he un-
derscored that his
television career e
didn't even begin
on television it
actually started
on Facebook, of all
places.
He was ebul-
lient as he ex-
plained the na-
scent beginnings
of the'show, which
he co-founded
with close friend
Steve Cannella-
"It' started as a
Facebook page to ".. .
see how many in-
digenous offspring
descendants of i -I
those original set-
tiers from Sicily,
Spain and Cuba
were still around."
However, the page,
which was created
in 2008, initially
appeared to be a
flop, not garner-
ing1 many follow-
-ers. But Nnfiez
explained that ...
something magi- '
cal began to hap-
pen as more and
more people came
together online.
"Facebook is so
interconnected. As "I'm read
things started to
come together and
people found us, our group
began to grow exponentially.
If just .grew quickly," he said
with a huge smile. "And we had
about 6,000 members in the
group before we knew it! The
phrase that got everyone's at-
tention is, Do you remember,'
he related. "What we found out
was that people were really pin-
ing lto speak about the old- days
in Tampa, when you could get
from one part of the town to
the other in 10 minutes and we
had it all to ourselves before
we were discovered, when we
were just a flyover on the way
to Miami."
A native son of Tampa,
Nfuifez knows what it's like to
pine for his hometown. Now he
along with his many television
viewers relive the'good times
of growing up in Tampa each
week. But his mission isn't just
about nostalgic fun it's about
preserving the city's history for
generations to come.
S Nfiuez was born in the old
St. Joseph's Hospital to par-
Sents of Cuban descent, Philip
and Carmen, in 1958. He ex-
plained what it was like to grow
up in Tampa during his child-
hood in the 1960s. "Everybody
knew everybody. You could go
anywhere in the city and you
knew somebody's cousin or
you were somebody's cousin,"
he laughed. "There's a phrase
- 'six degrees of separation.'
But when you were growing
up here, it was niore like just
one." During his childhood, he
also was bitten by the theater
bug, having performed in many
school plays. This theatrical-
ity would serve him well later
in his life on his TV show. "I'm
ready for my close-up," he said
with confidence.
After graduating from Jef-


ferson High School in 1976, he
attended Hillsborough Com-
munity College and the Uni-
versity of South Florida. After
marrying his wife, Sally, he de-
cided to become a flight atten-
dant with American Airlines,
inspired by an aunt who was a
career flight attendant on East-
ern Airlines. The couple, who
have two grown children, Alex
and Nic, lived in Chicago and

the Dallas-Fort Worth area for
years while Mario worked. "I
*traveled extensively, but that's
what I wanted to do," he re-
lated. As an international flight
attendant, he flew all over the
world.
As his career began to wind
down (he and his family re-
turned to Tampa ir 1999, and
he retired from the airline after
30 years of service in April), the
idea for "Tampa Natives" was"
born through his sense of nos-
talgia. It might seem ironic that
someone as well-traveled as
Nifiez would choose to come
back to his hometown, but he
emphasized that it was a nat-
ural decision. "When I came
back, I started to reconnect
with my old friends, the old
neighborhood and the old sto-
ries. It felt comfortable. It was
almost as if you didn't know
what you had missed...then I
realized, This is who I am and
where I'm from.'"
He added, "A very wise man
once told me, 'You know, life
is like a roll of toilet paper,"
Nufiez said with a broad laugh.
"I asked him, 'What do you
mean?' He said, The closer
you get to the end, the faster it
goes. That's where we are now.
All of us are children of the
1960s and 19708. Our parents
are passing on they're older.
Many of us are grandparents
now. A lot of us are looking
back with fondness and nostal-
gia about a town that no longer
exists," he said, referring to the
many changes and explosion in
growth Tampa has undergone
over the years.
Soon, the group of Tampa
Natives on Facebook began
putting together events to re-
connect and talk about the past
face-to-face. Niuhez and Can-


nella hosted a well-attended
New Year's Eve dance, as well
as several meet-ups at Tampa
Bay Rays games. However, the
two wanted to take the page to
the next level, via the medium
of public access television.
The Tampa Natives Show
was launched on September
1, 2010, on public access with
Nufiez and Cannella host-
ing. The show is broadcast on
Thursday evenings
Eat 7 p.m. on Ve-
rizon's channel
30, Bright House's
channel- 950
and Comcast's
channel 20. The
show can also be
watched via a web
cast on its web-
site (www.tam-
panativesshow.
com). In its begin-
nings, the hosts
would take calls
from viewers who
reminisced about
Tampa's past and
discussed nostal-
gic topics. How-
ever, the hosts
felt like something
was missing. En-
ter Ntfiaez' wife,
Sally, who insisted
she's "shy," but in
person, is just as
outgoing as her
husband.
"When we first
started broadcast-
Sing the show,"
jNfi fiez said, "The

Those are the rules. Why don't
you just walk into the'shot and
hand me a note like you're

camera, wink, and walk out?"
Sally was initially not on
board with this idea. "I am
someone who never wanted her
picture taken," she laughed.
"So being on television? I was----.
just terrified!" The couple came
to an agreement to have Sally
walk on at the 45-minute mark
during the hour-long show
to remind the hosts that they
were in their last 15 minutes.
"Little by little, she walked into
the shot and said, Boys, you
have 15 minutes to go...' Now
she-s on-set with us," he re-
counted. Thus, Sally became
known as "The 15 Minute Girl"
and is a full-time cast member.
"It was a learning experience!"
Sally remembered with a smile.
While Sally was born in Geor-
gia, she was raised in Tampa
from the age of four. "She's a
native," Nfiuez said with pride.
When they're not Working on
their show, they enjoy going to
the movies and the beach.
The show recently celebrat-
ed a huge milestone with its
100th live show and has add-
ed special guests to its reper-
toire. Its last few guests have
included La Gaceta publisher
Patrick Manteiga, Joe How-
den and Don Barco discussing
Ybor City's future and a profile
about the waiters of the Colum-
bia Restaurant over the years
(a sentimental topic for NCifuez,
as his father was a waiter at the
restaurant's Ybor location). He
recounted some of the show's


most memorable guests. "We
had Lou Piniella on, Tampa's
own baseball star, manager
and major leaguer. It was great,
because it was just after he'd
retired. I think we saw him for
the first time really relaxed and
decompressed on our show."
Nihez added, "A person
called in and told a story about
how his stepfather drove him
to Lou's house when he was
a little kid. Lou got a baseball
for him and signed it. Lou got
emotional hearing this. It was
really a great story. There were
little intimate things shared
that only people who have been
around Lou would know. Also,
the great baseball legend Mar-
celo Maseda was on before he
passed away. He was 92 and
very ill... but he rallied and
came out of his sickbed to be
on our show. That was argu-
ably a highlight." He also cited
Mike Graham, son of wres-
tier Eddie Graham, as a great
.guest.. "He was very generous,
very glib and a sweetheart of a
man," Nnhez recounted.
While The Tampa Natives
Show may just seem like a fun
hour of television each week, it
is being archived into the Uni-
versity of South Florida's Digi-
tal Collections to preserve the
oral histories shared for pos-
terity. In addition, the show is

ARIES (March 21 to April
19) You might need to get more
facts to help you work out
those problems with your new
project. As always, a friendly
approach shows the charming
Arian at his or her persuasive
best.
TAURUS (April 20 to May
20) Information is what en-.
ergizes ambition, and this is
a good time for the ambitious
Bovine to expand his or her
range of knowledge and to be
ready for the challenges that lie
ahead.
GEMINI (May 21 to June
20) This is a good time to
consider making some long-
overdue decorating changes at

But don't neglect the practical
aspects involved in implement-
ing their move from paper to.
production. Good luck.
VIRGO, (August 23 to Sep-
tember 22) A health problem

also working with a social me-
dia platform called UNATION
to further enterprise their mis-
sion. While the show may have
gotten its start through social
media, Nufiez underscored
the importance of public ac-
cess television in maintaining
outreach to a diverse group of
- viewers. "Every city that con-
siders itself to be progressive
on the political front, on the
human interest front, and in
everything it takes to keep a
city progressive has to have a
thriving public access televi-
sion show," he emphasized.
While Nnfiez hopes to see
The Tampa Natives Show con-
tinue to flourish, he main-
tained that popularity notwith-
standing, it remains a joy for
its hosts to produce. "This has
been a passion for us and re-
ally something that has been
fulfilling from the deepest parts
of our hearts. We are connect-
ing with people from our com-
munity and we see people in
the streets. They're telling us,
Thank you for what you're do-
ing...it's such a great show.'
We're providing a service and
a respite for people a chance
for them to feel the old feel-
ings. Who doesn't want to feel
young again? That's kind of
cool! From our perspective, it's
.a labor of love."














Intervention in Syria's civil
war has been the recent head-
line, and I'm not sure why I've
been thinking about the French
& Indian War. Fought dur-
ing the 1750s and 1760s, they
'called it "The Nine Years Great
War" in Europe. We were part
of this international conflict
even before we were a nation.
At the time, we were a col-
lection of British colonies (with
Florida as a Spanish colony).
When Britain and France host-
ed one of their periodic wars,
colonists in America, of course,
supported their Motherland.
Native Americans logically sid-
ed with France, as Frenchmen
treated them far more kindly
than.any other whites, includ-
ing the Spanish in the south,
the Dutch and Swedes in the
Middle Atlantic, or the English
in New England. Sensibly, In-
dian tribes joined with French
soldiers to fight the British sol-
diers and the colonist volun-
teers, who started the war in
the West Hemisphere by violat-
ing their own law.
British governors had
signed treaties with Indians as-
suring them of the. land west
of the Alleghenies and forbid-
ding white people from settling
there. That era's version of Tea
Parties, however, thumbed
their noses at government and
went west expecting the gov-
ernment to rescue them when
Indians predictably attacked.
It was terrorism of the worst
sort, stretching hundreds of
miles for years, and with ci-
vilians, including women and
children, brutally killed by
tomahawks and flaming ar-
rows. Not to discount modem
suffering in Syria, but dying
from Sarin gas would be much
less painful. Canadians have
kindly forgiven us, for our inva-
sion of French Quebec, but af-
ter victory, the British govern-
ment (ours) exiled thousands of
French Canadians (Arcadians,
later Cajuns) to the French col-
ony of Louisiana. Imagine that
refugee transition going from
cold Canada to the swamps of
the Mississippi River delta!
More because of victories in
Europe than, because of suc-
cess in America, we won that


war but when Britain wanted
Americans to help pay for it
in the next decade, these Tea
Party types did their PR event
at Boston. You know how that
turned out. Ever since, most
Americans, especially those
who label themselves conser-
vatives, hold the contradictory
positions of being pro-war and
anti-tax.

We also promote the myth
that we are a peaceful nation
or at least we believe that we
were until recently. Most ordi-
nary people, especially immi-
grants who fled from Europe's
continual turmoil, in fact were
* peaceful. They wanted to farm
and build businesses and fami-
lies, and they took seriously the
colonial distrust of a standing
army.
But a permanent military
was an honored part of the
British tradition, and America's
powerful men were educated in
that tradition. Respectable em-
ployment for the empire's gen-
tlemen was pretty much limited
to the clergy, law, medicine and
the military: Being "in trade" or
commerce long was considered
bourgeois. The nobility sent its
sons especially younger sons
to be military officers. Think
Prince William, the future king,
who is currently completing his
service as a helicopter pilot.
So it was unlikely that the
ideal of a nation without ,a
standing army would succeed.
We established West Point, the
federal academy in New York
that trains military officers, in
1802.
In 1812, we began a second
war against Britain; on the oth-
er side of the ocean, this was
part of the Napoleonic Wars.
Our involvement in interna-
tional affairs continued to be
real, even as we thought of our-
selves as isolationists indiffer-
ent to professional armies.
SIt was professionals, though,
who built Fort Brooke on Tam-
pa Bay in 1824. It was profes-
sionals who did a pitifully poor
job of fighting the Second Sem-
inole War. Ambushed as they
marched from Fort Brooke to
Fort King (Ocala), Major Fran-
cis Dade lost all but two of


his 110 men. Dade has been
celebrated as a hero but in
terms of percentages, his was
the greatest loss in military
history. That is until Custer's
Last Stand in South Dakota in'
1876: He lost all of his men.
The point is that professionally
trained soldiers are not neces-
sarily winners, either then or
now.

The war against the Semi-
noles was a huge money drain,
costing some $40 million dol-
lars and the deaths of 1,466
professional soldiers. (As per
their usual habit, military re-
cord keepers did not enumer-
ate either Seminole or civilian
deaths.) The bigger reason for
declaring the war over in 1842,
though, was diversion of mili-
tary attention elsewhere. War
with Canada over the Oregon
Country was a possibility, and
war with Mexico over Texas be-
came real that same year.
The army moved out, and
Floridians were urged to pro-
tect themselves under Armed
Occupation Act of 1842. A
precursor to the federal Home-
stead Act of 1862, it offered 160
acres of free land to anyone
who settled in central Florida.
The intent was that this would
keep Seminoles in south Flor-
ida. Many whites including
women accepted this federal
largess, along with the danger
it implied.
It didn't take long, though,
for Southern congressmen to
repeal the act.
Big plantation owners didn't
want competition from poor
whites with free land, and the
federal -Homestead Act would
wait until the Civil War. This
act, the greatest economic
equalizer of American history,
was adopted in 1862, while
Southern states were out of the
Union.
And it, too, was intended to
help the professional military.
Busy fighting their rebellious
colleagues in the Confederacy,
the government wanted civil-
ians to continue the Indian
wars. Which happened, espe-
cially with the great uprising
of Minnesota Sioux that killed
hundreds of civilians. Many
deaths were as horrific as any--
thing today.
Some of my lateral ancestors

that was set on fire; if they tried
to escape, they were shot.
The professional military po-
liced the occupied South after
the Civil War, and it returned to
more Indian wars in the West.
We managed to keep ourselves
out of Europe's Franco-Prus-
sian War of the 1870s, but in
the 1890s, we went to war with
Spain. After we had acquired
its colonies from Puerto Rico to
the Philippines, there was no
question that the United States
was an imperialist nation. For
good measure, we also over-
threw the native government in
Hawaii, effectively turning over
that nation to Dole Pineapple.

I'm going to skip the twen-
tieth century, with its two
world wars and major conflicts
in Korea and Vietnam, toq'say
nothing of minor incursions in
Mexico, Taiwan, Guatemala,
El Salvador, Nicaragua and on
and on. We are not a peace-
seeking nation, although we
have told ourselves that for so
long that most of us believe it.
We often build our self-im-
age on truly good reasons, as
most of us genuinely intend to
protect innocent people from
dictatorial governments. This
often is the reality, but often it
is not and most of us don't try
to sort out the historical con-
text to know the difference. In
Latin America especially, most
of our invasions have not had
the effect of protecting the peo-
ple, but instead have propped
up the rich, ala Dole Pineapple.
The overthrow of democratical-
ly elected Salvador Allende in
Chile was a particularly egre-
gious case of supporting fas-
cists with our military might.
So it always is right to ask
questions. It always is right to
begin your query with a healthy
skepticism re the Pentagon.
They (and- their defense con-
tractors) make their living by
making war, and the military
route to promotion mandates
combat experience.
I remember well when we
were living in Washington dur-
ing the Vietnam War, and the
favorite expression of military
friends was "What will we do if
peace breaks out?"
It is especially right to form
coalitions with other demo-
cratic nations who also want to
take out tyrants, and I'm glad
that President Obama hit the
pause button on Syria to gath-
er allies.
He's played this brilliantly so
far, both aboard and at home.
He's forced Republicans to put
up or shut up, instead of allow-
ing them their usual rhetoric
that has it both ways.

meled him if he hadn't stood
uip to Assad, and they would
have pummeled him if he got
us into another losing war. He
was absolutely right, both con-
stitutionally and strategically,
to make the Congress make a
decision. I'm sure that they all
breathed a big sigh of relief now
that he at least for a while -
let them off the hook.
One final point: Where
is the Red Cross? Or the Red
Crescent, in Muslim terms?
Why isn't it in the news deal-
ing with the refugees and the
victims, as it was during World
War II? Has it become merely
functionary for natural disas-
ters, not manmade ones? That
isn't its history. It began in the
1880s, because of the Franco-
Prussian War of the previous
decade.
Although the US stayed out
of that war, Clara Barton did
not. She was much more thah
a nurse in the Civil War of the
1860s: she was a- genius of
supply procurement and dis-
tribution. It was Dorothea Dix,
known for her mental health
work, who was Superintendent
of Nurses for the Union, while
Barton specialized in supply.
She was arn amazing organizer,
adept at preventing the corrup-
tion that always goes with sup-
plying war material, and after
its end, she set up the world's
first organization for identifying
the missing and dead.
And then she went to Eu-
rope, where she implemented
the same reforms and began
the International Red Cross -
but the US did not initially sign
that treaty. Nor did the U.S.
sign the treaty that created the
League of Nations after World
WarI.
It was only because -of
Franklin Roosevelt's leader-
ship in winning World War II
that the U.S. signed on to the
United Nations with many
conservatives opposing it both
now and then.
Bill Clinton merits the
heartiest congratulations in all
of these international dramas.
He put together a coalition that
ended genocide'in Bosnia with-
out the loss of a single American
life.
Most Republicans can't ac-
knowledge that. fact, and we
Democrats don't do enough to
publicize it but people look:
ing for answers about what to
do in Syria should look to him
,and Hillary. I'm sure President
Obama is doing that, and I
trust that with calm thought
that includes an understand-
ing of history, democratic val-
ues will prevail ..

weight, it's been on some
wacky plan that gets results
but is impossible to maintain.
I always start with the right
mindset, but as I have come
to realize time and time again,
the road to my gut getting big-
ger is paved \\ith good inten-
tions.... .and meatballs.
One of the concern's I had
before joining was that Pow-
erhouse Gym seemed 'like. a,
place for serious weight lift-
ers. and guys who could rip
my ears off if they were so in-
clined.
I didn't think people would
S mess with me per se, but I
didn't want to make a fool out
of myself.
My .worries couldn't have
been farther from the truth.
While it is true that Patrick
and I are two of the most
disproportionately-sized indi-
Sviduals who frequent the gym,
most people keep to them-
selves and any conversation
is positive and encouraging.
I suppose they see us as the
before photos and want to
make sure we get to. the after
photos .


To get to .the point, in the
four months I've worked out
at Powerhouse, JI've lost 22
pounds. It's just less than six
pounds a .month, but I am
very pleased. We go to the gym
three times a week .and some-
tifes four, but we try to never
rriss a workout. Very few days
have been missed and the
pattern of going to the gym
.has become habit.
SI haven't changed a whole
lot about the rest of my life-
style, but I do try to eat
healthy when possible. As
I stated, it's not a diet, it's a
lifestyle change and must be
able to be maintained to suc-
ceed. I haven't done anything
drastic. I've simply made the
choice to live better.
The difference this time
is that I got rid of the road
blocks .. .
Having a gym so conve-
nient in downtown has been
a godsend for rme and some-
thing that was needed for the
community. '
If only someone could have
Powerhouse Gymn's foresight
and build a supermarket
downtown.
