I always remember Mack's smile. I only knew him from the office, but he seemed like a wonderful guy. My heart goes out to his wife and children.

I will always remember Mr. Quintana for the way he supported and promoted education in our community. He was a tireless advocate. What a tragic loss. God bless this man, his wife, and children.

First Don Flores suddenly resigns under mysterious circumstances, then Mack Quintana apparently commits suicide. Is there any connection?

Maybe somebody is trying to clean house in the hopes that the new regime can produce a paper that is not so blatently liberal and pro-illegal immigration.

Are people really going to be so small that they would belittle a man's tragic death, as well as the pain his no doubt shocked and mourning family is going through? Put away your conspiracy theories and petty political agendas for a moment and try to show some basic humanity.

Wondering in California says "First Don Flores suddenly resigns under mysterious circumstances, then Mack Quintana apparently commits suicide. Is there any connection?" I've re-read the article and can't find how you came to the conclusion it was a suicide. Heart attacks and other diseases cause people to die at home also. Sounds like you've assumed the worst. You and your fellow conspiracy fanatics are sickening.

I am sure this article was in no way intended to cause specualtion of why he died or if he decided to take his life. And I agree with bohica that coming to the conclusion that it was suicide is unfair not only to his family, but as well as to Mack Quintana. Instead, this article was written to commemorate a man for his outstanding community service and for being an incredible father and husband. The community should show a bit more respect in return. Think of his grieving family and friends.

I have always known Mack Quintana to be an extremely positive, gracious and kind person. He would look you in the face and you could tell that he was genuinely concerned with how you were doing. There are very few people like Mack Quintana and he will be missed greatly by many people.

I would guess that Mark Quintana does not descend from Cuban political refugees. He was in charge during the several years we saw Ernesto "Che" Guevara's picture daily on the editorial part of the online Times, where we also saw the "Indymedia" anti-law enforcement rhetoric led by Carl Starr.

I guess he wasn't a facist like many of the gusanos in Miami who censor anything that is not in line with their eternal war against Castro. Funny how they cling on to their "freedom" message, yet cannot stand it when someone does not agree with them. These are the same people who call Luis Posada Carriles a freedom fighter and great man after he was responisbile for the bombing of a Cuban airliner.
As for Mr. Starr, the recent happenings with the EPPD show that we do need increased accountability. Not all of us are delusional to think that the EPPD is free from corrpution.

This is NOT about him being cuban or what cuban-americans think,This is about a man who dedicated his life to journalism,He was a great boss and a good man,your political arguments don't matter here,and are not welcomed.
