I Had A Dream
A Tale Of One City
Third of a three part series
By Cathy Salustri
I'm a white woman living in a black
neighborhood, and I'm turning into a rac-
ist because of it.
I don't say this proudly, quite the op-
posite. I am ashamed. But that doesn't
change what I have become.
Growing up, I didn't -as I don't think
many children do- notice skin color, save
for the little blonde girl in my first grade
class. I spent the first seven years of my
life in an Italian neighborhood, and when
Karen showed up in school, I asked my
mom why Karen's skin was so pale- was
she sick? Beyond that, I didn't really un-
derstand the idea of "a colored person". I
guess, after meeting Karen, I thought "col-
ored" must mean Italian.

leaving the scene ot' an acci-
dent with property damage.
Witnesses told police that
Colerick's Hyundai went air-
borne and rolled when it hit
the ground. Police say that no
other vehicle caused Colerick
to become airborne at the 61st
Street curve on Gulfport Bou-
"That's a corner that's no-
torious for speed; that turn
has always been a problem,"
Coombs said, adding that po-
lice have not determined what
caused the accident.
Colerick's passenger, Cath-
leen Colerick, went to Bay-
front Medical Center, where
she remains in stable condi-
tion at press time.
Once police and the medi-
cal examiner complete their
investigations into the crash
and Colerick's death, Rowland
may face other charges.

Keith Stillwagon retouches a painting to cover a nipple
at Friday night's ArtWalk. Stillwagon said he received
a complaint from a woman saying she would call the
police if he showed the painting outside without cover-
ing the nipple.
The ArtAWalk included Gulfport locals, beagles, kids,
and out-of-towners as parking stayed at a premium and
shops overflowed.

Crime Watch Develops Business

Component Network
By Cathy Salustri
At the May 14 Crime Watch meeting, Gulfport Crime Watch wants to start
building a 49th Street Business Network that will help businesses along 49th
Street combat crime.
"If one business gets robbed, I want to have a network in place where all the
other businesses know it so they can safeguard themselves," Ernie Stone, head
of Gulfport Crime Watch, told The Gabber. One example where such a network
could prevent crimes? The Gabber had a gentleman ask to use the bathroom.
He spent almost an hour in the bathroom; the next day the building got robbed.
With Stone's network in place, other businesses would know what to expect and
could better prevent crimes. The network would alert businesses to crime trends
and offer them a way to communicate their needs to the City.
Stone wants business leaders to attend so, rather than people who don't
know their needs, can create a network and a plan that will best help them.
Stone hopes that the Gulfport Chamber of Commerce, and all the busi-
nesses along 49th Street South, will attend regardless of what city they
operate on. Gulfport Crime Watch will meet on Monday, May 14 at the
49th Street Neighborhood Center. For information, call Ernie Stone at

Gulfport Sea Scouts Show Their Skill

Last Friday the Boca Ciega "Ship 915" of Sea Scouts sailed out to join 27 other
"Ships" in friendly competition and companionship at the Florida Spring Re-
gatta held in Apollo Beach. The Gulfport group was just organized in January
and has spent four months polishing their sea skills. The crew consisted of the
new kids in the regatta but they didn't look like it.
Out of four major events they took awards in two and placed in the top eight
in the waterfront relay. Two of the young Gulfport women, Yeoman Krista
Chapin and Mate Karissa Kasper placed third in sunfish racing, coming from
behind after a congested start. Boatswain "Chipper" Brinkley and Mate Don-
ald Ridgeway drove their catamaran to first place in multi-hull racing. Later
Saturday, after a banquet of BBQ ribs and hamburgers, the group enjoyed
a concert of historic. Sea "Chanteys" and the next day a full one-half of the
group passed the Coast Guard Auxiliary safe boating exam. "Chipper" Brin-
kley posted the highest score out of 178. scouts in attendance. Others of the
Gulfport group who attended the Regatta were Maigen Raybon, Tony Yazell,
Chris Blackburn, Purser Erich Barganier and Jacob Blackburn.
Sea Scouts is a popular co-educational program for teens from 14 to 20. The
young men and women learn how to run an organization and the importance
of self discipline in a maritime environment. The role of the adult "Advisors" is
to advise and empower not to run the program. For information regarding the
Boca Ciega Yacht Club youth program call Tony Angel at 345-9837.

Gulfport Senior Center Seeking Nat'l Accreditation

By Greg Stemm

The Gulfport Multipurpose Senior
Center is embarking on a program
that may ultimately lead to Nation-
al Accreditation by the National In-
stitute of Senior Centers, a unit of
the National Council on Aging, ac-
cording to Sue Frank, senior center
"It's a process we've been consid-
ering for a long time but we need-
ed the buy in of a lot of people and
while that has taken a while, I think
we're ready" said Frank. "Getting
accredited is a very hot topic right
now among senior center adminis-'
trators. We believe one day soon it
may be something that is required.
Since there are only 138 centers in
the country currently accredited, it
Should certainly be a huge feather in
Gulfport's cap if we could complete
this intensive self assessment pro-
cess," she continued.
The Gulfport Multipurpose Senior
Center Foundations board of direc-
tors voted last week to support the
Center in their quest for accredita-
tion. "It's basically a statement of
support right now," said Jane Ogil-
vie, foundation president. Ogilvie
is also owner of the Gulfport based
Senior Solutions of Pinellas County

business. "We don't know yet what
all the expense.will be to go through
this lengthy process that includes
everything from intra-structure is-
sues to the diversity and kind of
programming the center offers. But
the Foundation has committed to do
whatever we able to do to assist the
Center in getting this designation.
We believe it will be critically impor-
tant to our City to show that we are
committed to providing exceptional
senior services as the baby boomer
generation begins to demand them,"
said Ogilvie. According to Ogilivie,
the Foundation is a 501(c)(3) chari-
table not-for-profit organization
which exists solely to support pro-
grams and activities at the Gulfport
Multipurpose Senior Center.
The Senior Foundation board had
heard a presentation recently by
Jay Morgan, from the office on aging
with the City of St. Petersburg. The
Sunshine City Center in downtown
St. Petersburg is one of just five ac-
credited senior centers in Florida.
The others include the Tallahassee
Senior Center, The Mary L. Single-
ton Center in Jacksonville, the Se-
nior Friendship Center of Sarasota
and the Senior Friendship Center in
"This is only for senior centers

which are willing to step up to the
plate and commit to a process that
is arduous and involves rigorous
self assessment," said Morgan. "It's
important not to rush the process
which can take 18 months or up
to several years to complete." The
Sunshine City Center received their
accreditation in 2001.
Morgan said the three main ben-
efits of accreditation are "visibility"
"viability" and "value."
Frank has already sent an official
letter of intent to the NISC and paid
the initial $100 which covers the cost
of the National Senior Center Self-
Assessment and National Accredi-
tation Manual. It is the only cost for
the first phase of the accreditation
process and was paid for with public
money from budgeted Senior Center
funds. She anticipates receiving the
Manual within the next couple of
"At that point we can begin look-
ing at what all the requirements
will be," said Frank. "We knew a lot
of requirements from talking with
other centers, but the national or-
ganization has recently updated the
book and we will have to see if there
are any new things they have added
.that we haven't anticipated."
If the Center completes the months
long process outlined in the book it
will then need to apply for accredi-
tation and there is a fee based on
the Center's annual operating bud-
get. Currently the fee for a center
like Gulfport's who is a member of
the National Council on Aging and
in the $100,001 to $250,000 bud-
get range is $1400. Other expenses
would include about $600 in travel
expenses during the on-site inter-
view by a Peer Review representa-
tive. These expenses would happen
later in the process and Frank an-
ticipates asking the Foundation for
financial assistance to offset these
and other costs.
Ogilvie hopes the Foundation can
help. "We are planning to have fund
raising events every month to help
support the Center. It is nice to let
people know that their money is
helping out with an important pro-
cess like accreditation."

The Park View Hotel, located at the intersection of Central Avenue and Park
Street in west St. Petersburg was tented for pests early this week created a col-
orful spectacle for drivers. The Park View Hotel has a long history back to its
construction in 1915 when it was known as the Sunset Inn. It was the western
end of the Trolley route which ran along Central Avenue until the middle part
of the 20th Century. According to Marta Jones at the St. Petersburg Museum of
History, the building was designed by George Selpham, the same English archi-
tect which designed other historic structures in the area like the Poncp de Leon
Hotel, the Green-Richmond Arcade Building and the 1st Baptist Church all in
downtown St. Petersburg.
Until recently the property was known as the Crystal Bay Hotel, and had fallen
to neglect over the past several years. Norman Kerr, who has rehabbed proper-
ties in South Beach, Minneapolis, Austin and Dallas, bought the 90-year-old ho-
tel in January and plans to include an upscale restaurant and event facilities to
restore what was once the anchor of a western downtown. Kerr collected tokens
and stories from the community about a guest list at the hotel that is said to
have included Glen Miller, Marilyn Monroe, Babe Ruth and Robert Kennedy.

How To Minimize Federal
Estate Taxes
Federal estate taxes can take a
big portion of what you leave your
heirs. To lower federal estate taxes,
you may want to reduce the value
of your estate as much as possible-
before you pass on. The following
tax-effective strategies can be used
by you to transfer more of your prop-
erty to your heirs.
1. Fully Utilize your Unified Tax
Credit. You are entitled to pass
along $2 million worth of property
to your heirs tax free. When utilized
properly, this credit could double
to $4 million for a married couple.
However, you may miss out on this
double advantage if you leave every-
thing to your spouse.
Instead, it may be prudent to con-

sider establishing a bypass or living
trust in which you transfer $2 mil-
lion in assets to be held and man-
aged by a trustee. These assets can
remain in trust with all income gen-
erated going to the support of the
surviving spouse. Upon the death of
the second spouse, the assets would
then be distributed tax-free to your
named beneficiary (ies). In addi-
tion, the second spouse's estate up
to $2 million would pass along tax-
free. For this strategy to work, each
spouse must own some assets in his
or her name.
2. Start Lifetime Tax-Free Gifts
Now. Current law allows you to give
up to $12,000 free of federal gift tax
annually to as many individuals as
you like. The gifts can be cash, ve-
hicles, stocks and real estate. If you
are considering giving gifts to mi-
nors, such as your grandchildren,
the asset (s) should be placed in
trust for future use when the minor
reaches legal age or at some later
age you designate.
3. Transfer Ownership of Life In-
surance Policies. If a life insurance
policy is in your own name upon

your death, the proceeds of that life
insurance policy will be included in
your estate for federal estate tax
purposes. A better alternative may
be to have ownership of any existing
life insurance policies transferred to
an irrevocable life insurance trust or
purchase new policies in the name of
an heir or and irrevocable life insur-
ance trust.
4. Give to Charity. Establishing a
charitable remainder trust allows
you to set aside assets now for a
charity upon your death. In addi-
tion to reducing the taxable size of
your estate, you will receive any in-
come generated from the charitable
remainder trust, plus an income tax
deduction for the charitable gift.

Gulfport Council Should Welcome USF

Dear Editor: It is difficu
ine a proposal that should
of a "no-brainer" than the
ect currently being consider
Gulfport City Council. A
marine scientists proposes
Gulfport with periodic wal
reports and at the same tir
cal school classes access to
fascinating information. St
council isn't sure this is a g
suggest that the council sto
much attention to a narrow
group and take a look at
of a "greater good." They s
this proposal and welcome
versity of South Florida

Dear Editor: As a recent
er in the Marina District o
I hope that the Mayor an
Council will support the
study to come up at the Gu
Council on May 15th. Th
will be for USF marine sc

bacterial risks in Clam B.
research can only have gre
for and not impose itself i
on the citizens of Gulfport.

Dear Editor: I'm writ
you how disappointed I ar

sensors to be placed in the Bayou
and two locations in the Bay. It oc-
curs to me that in allowing their vote
to be swayed by a small band of self-
appointed experts they have denied
Gulfport a wonderful opportunity and
the rest of us the benefit of true repre-
sentation. I ask that council please do
some homework and rethink this one.
Beth Armstrong

'p giving so Dear Editor: It is my hope our City
w-interest Council will support the USF Project
the notion that is up for consideration at the May
should pass 15th Council Meeting. Surely, this is
e the Uni- a win-win situation for. Gulfport. It
with open would be a coup for us to have this
prestigious marine project located in
Dan Krause Gulfport to monitor our water qual-
homeown- This program will provide water
f Gulfport, quality information of Clam Bayou
d the City and Boca Ciega Bay. They will be an
proposed independent group monitoring the
lfport City purity of Clam Bayou as it returns to
e proposal a natural, healthy state. By monitor-
ientists to ing the waters in the bay, sensors will
d potential chart the rise in E-Coli levels as well
ayou. This as the approach of Red Tide. When the
at benefits contaminant levels become too high,
n any way warnings will be given. Our residents
will know to stay out of the water.
Rosenblum From an educational point of view,
residents will be able to go on-line and
ing to tell in real-time view the three designated

habitat will be quite an educational
experience. How many 'net surfers
(young and old) will want to view this
website? Live from Gulfport, it's Sea-
horse Viewing Time! If anyone around
the world wants to know where our
seahorses live they can consult an at-
las and locate Gulfport. Surely, this is
one way to put Gulfport on the map.
USF is only asking for closet space
(yes, closet space) to house their com-
puters. They are not asking to acquire
the Coast Guard Auxiliary Building.
They need space to house their com-
puters so we're talking approximately
5' x 5' maximum. Not a lot of room by
any means; just enough space for sev-
eral computers.
There will be prestige for Gulfport.
When the City Council turned it down
in March, six nearby communities in-
vited the Project Manager to consider
them. Why? They value the research
and the prestige that comes with
a project such as this. It's not just
about studying water quality. There
are medical and military benefits as
well derived from their research data.
Apparently, these communities real-
ize the value of this highly advanced
technological project. Why doesn't
I hope our City Council members will
approve, the leasing of the space for
the housing of computers at Osgood
Point in the Coast Guard Auxiliary
Building. Once these pertinent facts
are brought before them it is my hope
they will appreciate the many ben-
efits the USF Marine Science Project
will bring to Gulfport.

SIt seems like we are heading backward as a society
not forward when we have record breaking fiscal
years of profit for the OIL companies yet we the
public suffer at the gas pump. It is not only record
gas prices, many items have increased at an

1. The only way to accumulate wealth is to live

huge increases in the cost of living.
2. Basic financial planning has become more
sophisticated and yet people have to invest conser-
vative due to low bank interest rates while banks
and oil companies make record profits.
3. I recommend that retirees invest prudently and
have a comfort level of how their money will be

Working with a financial advisor should be strongly
considered. At Conley Financial Services we can

Scapino Invades

the Hickman Theater
The Gulfport Community Players open a very zany
comedy entitled Scapino tonight at '8 p.m. at the Hick-
man Theater. Scapino is a comic farce written by Frank
Dunlop and Jim Dale based.on a classic Moliere play. It
tells the story of two young Italian men, madly in love,
who ask Scapino for help against parental opposition
to their forthcoming marriages. It turns out that there
is really not much opposition at all, but that doesn't
stop the fast-talking Scapino from helping them any-
way, whether they need it or not!
Although the play is not a musical, it does have some
music in it. What the play is, however, is a very fast-
paced slapstick comedy with hardly minutes' rest for
the cast (and the audience). You'll be on the edge of
your seats watching Scapino manipulate, con and ca-
jole everyone into doing exactly what he want them to
'Tickets are on sale now for just $15 each and are avail-
able at Eileen's Resale Boutique, the Beach Bazaar, the
Gulfport Chamber of Commerce, the Gulfport Casino,
at the door or by calling 322-0316 for advance sales. It
will run from May 10th through May 20th at the Cath-
erine A. Hickman Theater of Gulfport on Beach Blvd.
at 26th Ave. So.
Visit the Players' web site at www.gulfportcommuni-
typlayers.org for m ore information and check out some
photos from the play while you're there.

Arbor Day
The Barbara Gilberg Habitat on
SShore Dr. S. was the setting for this
year's Arbor Day festivities on April
27th. A very good assembly of guests
arrived for the 10 a.m. celebration.

brought a number of visitors in
wheelchairs who enjoyed the special
outing. A four man color guard from
Admiral Farragut Academy marched
up front to the shelter and after the

Larry Crowley announced the win-

So. Shore Dr., Multi-Family: Harbor-
side, Commercial: Leverocks. The
commissioner then turned the mike
over to Cindy Peacock from the Pi-
nellas County Extension Service to
say a few words about the butterflies
released. Miss Peacock recited an In-
dian Legend:
""If anyone desires a wish'to come
true they must first capture a but-
terfly and whisper that wish to it.
Since a butterfly can make no sound,
the butterfly cannot reveal the wish
to anyone but the Great Spirit who
hears and sees all In gratitude for
giving the beautiful butterfly its free-
dom, the Great Spirit always grants
the wish. So, according to legend, by
making a wish and giving the butter-
fly its freedom, the wish will be taken
to the heavens and be granted."
While read the butterflies from
the Florida Monarch Butterfly Farm

various individuals in small release

is also empowered to pass rules that
enable it to implement its statutorily
authorized duties andresponsibilities.
These rules are contained in Chapter

devoted to applicants who want
to become licensed but have some
wrongdoing in their past. They are
considered on a case by case basis.
Gulfport's first ever Commission
Member is Poul Hornsleth, broker
for R. W. Caldwell Realty, who rec-
ommended the Commission gather
in Gulfport. He is currently in his
second four year term having been
appointed twice by Governor Jeb

serving as Chairman of the Florida
Real Estate Commission and urg-
es citizens with an interest in the
workings of government to attend.

Major League for
Gulfport Police
Gulfport's Public Safety Softball

rumors of Major League Scouts in
the audience, but to date, no con-
tracts have been offered to players on
either team.
"It is our position," one team mem-
ber told The Gabber, "that if the
Devil Rays need them, our secondary

to permit it."

npras Tennis Fan Club

Being a bit of a homebody, I don't
often get across the bridge.
Tampa is a dirty word in my
house. But, every once in a while, a
friend or relative will acquire tickets
to something really cool, and I am
obliged to leave my little corner of St.
Petersburg. Just such an occasion
presented itself the other weekend
when I was invited to watch Pete
Sampras play in the Mercedes-Benz
Classic at the St. Pete Times Forum.
Now, before I tell you how incredible
it was to watch Pete Sampras play, I
realize I need to explain to half of you
just who the heck he is.
The thought that there might be
somebody out there who has not heard
of Pete Sampras would have been
incredible to me a week ago. I mean,
I never watch basketball, but I know
who Michael Jordan is. However,
when I pitched this column idea to
my colleagues with a huge "you-
are-going-to-be-so-jealous" smile on
my face they simply stared blankly.
The clock ticked awkwardly for what
seemed like an entire minute before
one finally asked, "Who?"
Who?! "Pistol" Pete Sampras the
"King of Swing" is arguably the
greatest men's tennis player -to ever

Pete Sampras retired from

million in career prize money. But he
couldn't stay away. The Mercedes-Benz

match-point, I shouted "C'mon Pete!"
And Pete Sampras Mr. Wimbledon,
that living legend definitely heard
I am a huge tennis fan, if I haven't
made that clear. I am actually
something of a geek about it. When the
Grand Slams are on, I have been known
to sit up until 4 am just to watch live
coverage from the Australian Open.
Being a June baby, I spent more than
one happy birthday morning having
"Breakfast at Wimbledon." I have
longed to go to Paris not to gaze upon
the Eiffel Tower or to catch a glimpse
of the Mona Lisa but to cheer in the
red-clay-romp that is Roland Garros
- the French Open.
But, why do I love tennis? Because
unlike so many sports, tennis is a one-
on-one drama. It is personality, guts
and pure desire that drive players
on a grueling year-round tour of
tournaments. There is no "season"
or draft. There are no team politics.
For a tennis player, it's you against
the world and, more poignantly, you
against yourself.
Of course, I'm not talking about me
against myself. As anyone who has
ever seen me can easily tell, I am no
athlete. My idea of competition is to
see how many M&Ms I can pick up
with a pair of chopsticks. I did "make"
the tennis team in high school, but
that's really just because they took
anyone who tried out. I think I played
one match a doubles match and lost
because I couldn't get a single serve
over the net.
That fact, however, only makes me
love tennis all the more. How do they
do it? Andy Roddick is on record with
a 155mph serve. Some cars won't even
go that fast, people.
Polo may be the sport of kings, and
baseball might be America's past-
time, but tennis is the truest test of
will, a spectacle of spirit. Just when
you think that a player.can't give any
more, he digs deep and comes up with
the grit to pull through. And, maybe
that's why I admire it so much: it's a
little bit like life. Only, without the big
fat prize money.

of drought-tolerant plants and trees,
plants that are appropriate for pite
conditions, the inclusion of elements
to prevent storm water runoff, ef-

Adopt a
Manatee for Mom
This Mother's Day, increase the size
of your family by one ton! Adopt a
manatee for mom this Mother's Day.
Even though you can't actually bring
the manatee home, Save the Mana-
tee Club (SMC) will send your mom a
photo and biography of the new fam-
ily member. An adoption certificate,
membership handbook and newsletter
subscription are also included. And,
during the month of May, each new
member who joins the Adopt-A-Mana-
tee program at $35 or more will receive
a free commemorative plate featuring
a design of "Manatees" by renowned
marine artist Wyland (while supplies
last). Although the average manatee
is not quite a ton (usually 800 to 1,200
pounds), they are probably the big-
gest and best present you can give
to mom. In addition, funds from each
Adopt-A-Manatee membership go to-
ward efforts to protect endangered
manatees and their habitat.
Save the Manatee Club is a nation-
al, nonprofit organization started in
1981 by U.S. Senator Bob Graham
and singer/songwriter Jimmy Buffet.
The Club's mission is to protect en-

homes on my street (myself included)
have anyone living there who holds job.
The rest get money from.., well, I don't
know where. Maybe they all inherited
it. People walk by smoking pot... at any
time of day. Houses have people- young
people, not retirees- sitting outside all
day and night. Parties start early every
day, music thumping, crowds gathering,
all hours before twilight. Strangers visit
several homes on my street for just a few
minutes at a time, then disappear down
alleys again. I see no signs that most of
my neighbors'want things to change.
I hate what I see and how I feel. I like
the few neighbors I know. They bring
me food on Thanksgiving, check on me
when I enter a hermit phase and don't
show my face for a while, and smile at
me on the street. So when these racial
slurs ricochet through my head and
two minutes later one of my neighbors
brings me a plate of crawfish dressing,
I feel no better than Michael Richards. I
have had every advantage, my skin color
among the largest. I'm not a stupid girl;
I know that does NOT give me the right
to use these words; in fact, I should, be-
cause of those advantages, know better.
Even in a neighborhood that receives
substandard city services, I have advan-
tages because of my skin color.

to life, and trash collection seems based
on the Chinese calendar. Potholes and
litter line the alleyways.
A code enforcement officer in my neigh-
borhood told me he was happy to see
a white person in the neighborhood. A
St. Pete policeman responded to one of
my calls- a break in to my fenced yard-
and told me to move, because the police
didn't have enough officers to do what
needed to be done in Bartlett Park.
I cannot believe these two city repre-
sentatives would have said the same
thing to any of my black neighbors. Ev-
ery police officer (and there have been
many) who has come out here has asked
why I moved here, their tone suggesting
I need my head examined.
I have had a plethora of petty thefts
and few big ones, although no one has at-
tempted to enter my house... yet. Lawn
mowers, old sandals, wasp killer, weed
eaters, lawn furniture, ladders, and a
host of other items disappearing have
all definitely clouded the way I think.
My fence lock getting smashed off with
a cinder block hasn't helped, either.
Last month a 19 year old black man,
Maurice Fleming, got arrested while
riding my stolen scooter. The locked
scooter disappeared from my front yard;
two days later the police caught him rid-
ing it a few blocks from my house. He
had Ecstasy on him. He also was on
probation for possession of cocaine and
weed. My first thought? Well, my first
thought was unprintable. My second
thought was not much better: "Well, sta-
tistically, he'll be dead soon." Not quite
the tolerance my mom and dad tried to
teach me.
Tuesday morning I sat in court-and
watched him tell a judge he had a pre-
scription and simply mistook the Ecsta-
sy for his prescription. I then watched
the judge sentence him to "time served".
The charges of grand theft? Dropped.
Incidentally, Mr. Fleming totalled my
scooter. Excuse me, allegedly totalled
it. I watched Fleming make eye con-
tact with someone he knew watching
the sentencing. He smiled at them. And
something in me broke, because at that
minute I realized I wasn't just thinking
awful things about him, but every black
person in that courtroom.
I moved here because I believed skin
color didn't'matter, that underneath the
epidermis we were all the same. I moved
here because I could afford my home
without putting on heels and a skirt
and working 40 hours a week at a place
where I got memos about group lunches
and had to participate in trust falls and

team building exercises.
I don't want to move, I really don't. I
love my 1925 house, its refinished wood
floors, fireplace, and huge yard. I love
living close to Gulfport and downtown
Pt. Pete. I love that I can pay my mort-
gage with the money I make writing.
. But I hate what it's doing to my view
of the world. I hate that with every bur-
glary (10 times in 18 months), 'words I
once found abhorrent stop just short of
my lips. I hate that I know my neighbor-
hood's problems result from crack and
too many absentee landlords, yet I still
find myself looking at every black face
I see, wondering: Will you be the next
person to steal from me? I hate that I
am losing the ability to see anything
other than black and white. I hate that
I want another white person to buy a
house on my street because that would
be a "sign" that the neighborhood might
turn around. I hate that two years in
one neighborhood has erased an entire
canon of black literature and history

and replaced it with racism.
Above all else I hate that my friends
who have darker skin than I will read
this and see what I have become. I
wish that not saying these things would
make them go away, but it doesn't. So'
what can I possibly say to them to erase
what I feel, to convey how it hurts me
to feel these things? How can they ever
trust that I don't care what their skin
looks like?
What about the next black person I
meet past the perimeter of Bartlett
Park? Will I see them as a person, or
have I lost the ability to see past the
pigment in their skin? Will I judge them
before I know them, and, as such, never
know them at all?
That makes me a racist if that is true,
and that, more than any prescient fear
for my possessions, disturbs me more
than anything else.
My friends assure me that a racist
would never move to this neighborhood.
And I agree: a racist didn't.

Holy Spirit, you who solves all problems, you
who lights all roads so I can attain my goal,
you who give me the divine gifts 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 confirm once more that I never want to be
separated from you, even in spite of all ma-
terial illusions. I wish to be with you in your
eternal glory. Thank you for your mercy toward
me and mine. The per-
son must say this prayer for 3 consecutive
days. After 3 days the favor requested will be
granted, even if it may appear difficult. This
prayer must be published immediately after
the favor is granted, without mentioning the
favor, only your initials should appear, at the
bottom. E.T.
