Ham Radio Operators
Plan a Field Day
On-air demonstrations, satellite
communications and emergency pre-
paredness activities are on tap for
members of the St. Petersburg Ama-
teur Radio Club (SPARC) as they
gear up to participate in the annual
event known as Field Day, which is
sponsored by the American Radio
Relay League (ARRL), the national
association for Amateur Radio.
The St.Petersburg Amateur Radio
Club (SPARC) will hold its annual
Field Day at Bay Pines Veterans
Hospital from 2 p.m. on Saturday,
June 23 through 2 p.m. Sunday June
24. The operating site is located be-
hind Building 37 in the waterfront
area. The public is welcome to at-
tend. "We hope that anyone who is
interested in seeing what Amateur
Radio is all about will come out for
Field Day," says Leslie Johnson,
President of SPARC.
During Field Day, operators set up
in local parks, at shopping malls, or
even in their own backyards, and
get on the air using generators or
battery power. Field Day was de-
signed to test operators' abilities to
set up and operate portable stations
under emergency conditions such as
the loss of electricity. While people
often think that cell phones or other
communications technologies have
replaced ham radio, we can still pro-
vide an important communications
service that others can't."
Field Day is a serious test of skill,
but it is also a contest for fun and the
largest "on-air" operating event each
year. During the weekend, radio op-
erators try to contact as many other
Field Day stations as possible. More
than 30,000 Amateur Radio opera-
tors across the country and Canada
participated in last year's event.
To find out more about Amateur
Radio or how you can get started,
contact Leslie Johnson at 347-7422.
Information is also available from
the American Radio Relay League,
225 Main Street, Newington, CT
06111 or by calling 1-800-32-NEW

Carnival of Culture
By Shelly Wilson
By l The Caribbean is one of the most culturally

diverse regions of the world, home to over 7,000
islands and coastlines, in a myriad of countries
and languages. Last weekend, the Tampa Bay
-Caribbean Carnival at the Vinoy Park attempt-
S ed to celebrate them all with a festival of food,
family fun and most importantly great, live
music.
%R 1 Whether it was the tinker of a steel drum,
the skanking rhythms of reggae, or the driving
timbales of salsa, the Caribbean Carnival was a
dance-hall inspired celebration of the most uni-
fying human art.
Of course, the food was a close second to the
dance party, with familiar samplings like Jerk
chicken and more exotic offerings of mango bread
and "reggae" wings. Folks with island-inspired
drinks, served in green coconut shells, mingled
at vender stalls to purchase Caribbean music,
t flags and t-shirts from every nation, while the
S kids played on inflatable slides and bouncing
cages.
On Sunday, the party kicked off day two with
4 a costume parade along the waterfront to show-
case the colorful traditions of the Caribbean -
expanding on the theme that pervaded through-
out the weekend: the celebration of diversity.

S~ .- Rory Ricks, of .Tampa, was helping out for the
S second year in a row at last weekend's festival.
Pausing in his jerk pork preparations, he smiled:
.."I always have a great time here."

By Caihy c -1d
Lou Worthington and Christine Brown
1 -sit side by side on their new front porch,
Iwo enjoying the lazy pace of summer. Inside
their daughter pops her head into the window
every few minutes. Summer has taken hold at
the Worthington/Brown home.
This family is ready.
Not just for late sunsets, afternoon
thundershowers, and preteens who may
occasionally call out, "Mom, I'm booo-red!"-
.,;~ but for a hurricane.
Just a few steps away from where they sit
.sipping tea and watching the world go by, this
Family has built a true hurricane shelter- a
safe room designed by FEMA. In this room the
Family can ride out a Category Five hurricane.
It doesn't exactly rival the Four Seasons, but
Iit has the basics and, more importantly, keeps
their family safe and together if a storm starts
heading towards Pinellas County.

Beach Clean, from front page

be as pristine as a hidden jewel. Instead, careless beachgoers can make
this place look more like a roughed-up rhinestone.
But a small group of locals is combating this.
Armed with buckets and sticks that can clamp litter (who really wants to
pick up a used soda straw with his or her bare hand?), they have set out
the second Saturday of every month since 1998, says Don Nolan, one of the
cleanup's coordinators, to clean up the stretch of Treasure Island's beach
that lies between John's Pass and the Island Inn.
"It's a worthwhile community effort," says Betty Nolan, Don Nolan's wife
and cleanup co-organizer, "and we've met a lot of great people."
The group meets at Ricky T's restaurant at 7:45 a.m., where they chat
over a hearty breakfast before setting out. During season, when snowbirds
come down, Don Nolan says, more than forty people show up. Today, about
twenty show up, including Treasure Island city councilman Phil Collins,
who represents Isle of Capri. Not bad for June, Nolan says.
Although the cleanup is a way to demonstrate their love for Treasure
Island's shoreline, Don Nolan says that he wishes more beachgoers would
pack out what they pack in.
"It's a shame that we have to do these cleanups" he says. "You hate to see
the beaches littered."
But with a little effort on a cool Saturday morning, anyone can improve
Treasure Island's beaches; one crushed Coors Light can at a time.

What To Expect in a
Divorce Proceeding
(Part 2)
A court may find it necessary to
award alimony or spousal support in
many dissolution of marriage cases.
As with child .support, the Court will
consider two factors: one party's need
and the other's ability to pay. Both of
these factors must be proven in Court
by the requesting spouse if the hus-
band andwife cannot reach an agree-

ment on their own. Alimony may be
awarded' to either a husband or wife
and, depending on the length of the
marriage and other factors, the ali-
mony may be permanent or for only a
short duration of time.
Under Florida law, the Court must
try to make an "equitable distribu-
tion" of the marital property and
debts. "Equitable" does not always
mean equal, although that is the
starting point. Many factors, includ-
ing child support, custody and ali-
mony awards, can cause the Court
to make an unequal (but still equi-'
table) division of property. A Court
will not generally divide the property
and debts that arise outside the mar-
riage.
If needed, the Court can order you
or your spouse to do, or not do, cer-

tain things. The Court may order a
party not to telephone the other, not
to come to the other's place of busi-
ness and not to interfere in the other
spouse's activities.
The Court can order one party to
pay some or all of the other party's
attorney's fees. A Court does this to
assure that both parties have equal
access to competent counsel. The
Court does not award legal fees in ev-
ery dissolution of marriage case. The
Court must first find that one party
has a greater ability to pay than the
other.
Even if there an indication that one
party has a greater ability to pay legal
fees than the other party, you cannot
be certain the Court will awayd the
payment of legal fees in behalf of the
party who does not have an equiva-
lent ability to pay legal fees. For
this reason, and because of the great
drain that legal fees have on marital
assets, everyone (parties and attor-
neys alike) should make every effort
to resolve a divorce case as economi-
cally and amicably as possible.
Next article we will discuss child
custody, visitation and support.

Safe, from page 11

"He was never ever going to leave,
no. matter what," Brown says of
her husband. "It was a decision we
made: Do I leave with my daughter
and risk her growing up without
a father? Do I send her with my
mother and risk her growing up
without parents? Do we all leave
and risk losing ,,everything we
worked for? This was the only way
to ensure everyone's safety, the.
only way to make sure we were all
together."
CERT (Community Emergency
Response Team) played a part in
their decision to build a safe room
as well. Brown and her Ahusband
actively participate in CERT and
have trained as a "first responder"
in the advent of a disaster.
"You can't help other people and
help your community ifyou can't
help yourself," Brown explained,
adding: "We didn't 'want to be
victims, we wanted to be part of the
solution."
With that as a guiding factor, the
Worthington/Brown family built a


192 square foot room. The walls,
made of eight-inch thick concrete,
have steel reinforcements, every
four inches. The roof also has steel
reinforcements and consists of five
inches of concrete.
The almost 200 square foot room
has other features that make it an
ideal hurricane hideout: doors open
in, which means no matter what the
storm throws against the doors, the
family can still open them and, if
necessary, work their way .out. ,
City code made it necessary to add
a window ("You can't build a cave in
Gulfport," Brown jokes), which- like
the doors- can withstand winds up
to 550 miles per hour. The entire
structure stands alone; it looks
like part of their home but it is an
independent building that will stand
even if the rest of the home blows or
floats away. The cost? $70,000.
Lou Worthington and Christine
Brown invite anyone who wants to
know more about their safe room to
visit them at 2802 53rd Street South,
or contact them at the monthly
CERT meeting. Anyone can get free
plans for safe rooms at www.FEMA.

A Historic Wal-Mart?
By Shelly Wilson

They came with posters of archi-
tectural detail and promises of more
green space. But in the end, it was
going to take more than just a pretty
face to impress some Historic Ken-
wood residents.
At last Thursday's meeting of the
Historic Kenwood Neighborhood As-
sociation, representatives of Wal-
Mart introduced their plan to build
a 100,000+ square foot Super Center
at 1st Avenue North and 34th Street
in St. Petersburg, technically part of
Historic Kenwood.
The site, home to the now-closed
Diamond Furniture Gallery and an
operating automotive supply center,
Super Parts, has long been consid-
ered a dormant commercial space.
According to preliminary plans,
those buildings would be demolished
to make way for a downsized version
of Wal-Mart's Super Center, featur-
ing a grocery section and 24-hour
shopping.
In keeping with the Historic des-
ignation of the area, the proposed
store would feature an architectural
style reminiscent of the neighbor-
hood's celebrated bungalows. Cor-
ner cupolas and a brick facade will,
according to Jim Porter, an attorney
for Wal-Mart Stores, Inc, make the
Historic Kenwood store architectur-
ally unique in the country.
While some residents at Thursday's
meeting debated the attractiveness
of the design, most had more practi-
cal concerns: chiefly traffic and com-
petition for smaller businesses.


#Business owners from the Grand
Central District were especially con-
cerned about the impact of a Super
Center on the neighborhood shops.
Quenta Vettel, Senior Manager of
Public Affairs for Central Florida,
downplayed the impact a Wal-Mart
as competition for local businesses,
claiming that the addition often
boosted sales in neighboring stores.
While the crowd seemed to be divid-
ed on this issue, one resident agreed,
saying "If I want a cannoli, I go to
Mazzaro's, not Wal-Mart."
Historic Kenwood President Jim
Longstreth echoed that sentiment by
adding that the shops in the Grand
Central District are generally spe-
cialized businesses, dealing in the
kinds of goods and services that Wal-
Mart would not offer.
As local business owners worried
about a possible decline in foot traf-
fic, neighborhood residents were
equally concerned with the inevi-
table increase in vehicular traffic.
Some offered that the westbound-
only flow of 1st Avenue North might
create an issue for customers coming
from 34th Street, or cause backup on
Central or 1st Avenue South. East-
bound customers might also exit via
Burlington Avenue, creating unde-
sirable excess traffic in the residen-
tial areas.
Wal-Mart representatives fielded
numerous questions and concerns,
but were quick to point out that this
was a very preliminary meeting.
They maintained that no traffic stud-
ies had been made and nothing had
been officially proposed to the City
of St. Petersburg. Many of the deci-

sions impacting traffic, representa-
tives acknowledged, would ultimate-
ly be handled by the city and by the
Department of Transportation.
As for the environmental concerns
that are so often a caveat of proposed
Wal-Mart stores, it seems that devel-
opment of this existing commercial
space may be a marked improve-
ment. According to Florida's Depart-
ment of Environmental Protection
(DEP), this site is currently consid-
ered contaminated, and Wal-Mart
representatives claimed that they
are working with the DEP in an ef-
fort to decontaminate the area before
demolition begins.
Representatives expressed hope
that the demolition process could be-
gin as early as next winter.
Though Wal-Mart has three other
stores nearby in Tyrone, Pinellas
Park and, most recently, at 3501 34th
Street South, representatives believe
that the surrounding community will
be able to support another store.
Vettel said that the company feels
"very strongly that this will be a suc-
cessful store serving this neighbor-
hood."
While several of Wal-Mart's past
attempts to build in Pinellas County
have been met resistance notably
at the proposed site on Gandy Bou-
levard, a project that was thwarted
by resident opposition the Historic
Kenwood Wal-Mart looks like it will
find favor in the community.
Overall, residents at Thursday's
meeting seemed skeptical but posi-
tive about what a Wal-Mart would
mean to the neighborhood. Some
attendees openly expressed their
excitement at the benefits the store
could offer, including the prospect of
new jobs and the redevelopment of a
barren commercial space.
Porter summed up the meeting as
an expression of good will between
the company and the neighborhood,
saying, "If we come here and get your
concerns, we're going to be more suc-
cessful."
Company representatives are
scheduled to meet with residents of
the Central Oak Park Neighborhood,
which borders the opposite side of
34th Street at the proposed site, for a
similar community meeting on June
19th.

Free
Back-to-School Exams
Teeth are important to all of us, in-
cluding our children. Children need
teeth to talk and chew. Pain due to
oral health problems causes children
to miss nearly 52 million school hours
each year. To help children not miss
any school due to toothaches or other
oral health problems, the Pinellas
County Health Department's Dental
Division is hosting its annual "Back-
to-School" event. This year promises
to be bigger than ever!
Children ages 1 to 18 will receive
free dental exams and x-rays. Chil-
dren will also take home a care bag of
dental products (while supplies last).
All children must be accompanied by
a parent or guardian to participate
in this event. Many children will be
able to schedule follow-up appoint-
ments prior to the start of the school
year.
The free dental exams will be offered
8 a.m. to 4 p.m. as follows: Monday,
July 23: Pinellas Park Health Cen-
ter, 6350 76th Ave. No., 547-7780;
Wednesday, July 25: St. Petersburg
Health Center, 205 Dr. M. L. King
St. No., 824-6975
For more information, call the
Health Center nearest you.
Don't let a toothache ruin your
child's day! Make this event part of
your child's back-to-school routine.

RUSH'S Reality


A satirical look at the world around us.


By Anne Rush


Driver Improvement Course


Afew months back,. I had a car
, accident. The good news is no
ne was hurt. The bad news is
my car was totalled.
The good news is my insurance
company is Geico and I was expect-
ing a celebrity along the lines of say,
George Clooney, to do the commer-
cial and help me with my claim. The
bad news is George wasn't available
on such short notice. Even for me.
Which clearly was his loss.
As it turned out, that was OK, be-
cause I got Scott. I never met Scott in
person but he had a pleasant phone
voice and I pictured him as being
late 20's early 30's, blonde with an
easy smile and dancing eyes.
Anyway, I was charged for being
at fault. This is particularly painful
for me not only because I loved that
little car but moreso because, like all
of you, I consider myself to be the
best driver on the road. In 32 years
of driving, I've never had a moving
violation. Ever. Call me lucky, but I
think my record speaks for itself.
But moving right along, after I paid


the fine, I had to take a Driver Im-
provement Course. Here's where the
fun begins.
It's a mandatory four hour course.
They want to make it painful for
you in order to, I suppose, teach you
a lesson. So on a Saturday morn-
ing, the only time I can truly devote
four consecutive hours to anything, I
jumped on the computer. Thank God
in this day and age you can do these
things on-line in your nightgown and
have a legitimate legal excuse to not
go grocery shopping.
I was actually sweating it because I
haven't taken a test like this since I
was 16. Failure would mean a loss of
$25 and active four points on my li-
cense. And I don't think even dreamy
Scott could help me with my insur-
ance rates over that.
I must say it was a very comprehen-
sive course covering everything from
stop signs to vehicle maintenance to
right of way and amazingly, how to
drive in ice, snow and mountains. I
aced those ones because even though
this was a State of Florida approved

course, I learned to drive in Pennsyl-
vania.
Suffice it to say that when you're
driving your mom's 1976 green V-8
Chevy Impala up and down a dark
curvy mountain road with no guard
rails in the snow to an A-frame party
house on the top of the mountain,
whether or not the bridge freezes
before road surface is not very rel-
evant.
Having said that, turns out I passed.
Out of 40 questions, I had to get 32
right. I got 36 right. The test didn't
tell me which ones I missed which
begs the question "What should I
know that I apparently didn't know?",
but here's where I think I may have
gone wrong. What do you think?
Failed Question #1: When someone
is tailgating you, you should: ,
A) speed up;
B) wait for an opportunity to safely
use your directional signal (yes, I
said directional; they're not turn sig-
nals anymore, folks) to move into an-
other lane;
C) slam on your brakes to make them
back off.
Failed Question #2: How many feet
before you execute a turn should you
display your directional signal?
A) 100
B) 200
C) Leave it on all the time coz you'll
probly have to turn somewhere some-
time.
Failed Question #3: When. four vehi-
cles approach a four-way red octago-
nal stop' sign, you should obey rules
of right of way as follows:
A) Yield to car on your right;
B) Yield to the bright yellow Hum-
mer;
C) Assume that the car on your left
considers you to be the car on their
right and blaze right through.
Failed Question #4: If your car suf-
fers a blow out tire, you should:
A) Remain calm and ease your foot
off the gas and wait for a break in
traffic using your directional signal
to safely pull off to the shoulder;
B) Steer with the skid;
C) Way totally freak out, slam on the
brakes, see your entire life flash be-
fore your eyes and cause a multi-car
back-up on the Howard Frankland.

Journalists, from front page

Journalists from the St. Petersburg Times, Tampa Tribune, and numerous
public relations offices had an open question and answer session after Salustri
explained why she did the article. The article was to let readers know her
bias on reporting in the Midtown area of St. Petersburg.
"What do you mean by racist?" asked President Eric Deggans, regarding
her use of the word in the article. Salustri explained she felt that has started
noticing color more often, and feels she might be seeing and judging people
based on that. She continued by saying it doesn't mean she wants to feel
that way, or likes that she does feel that way, but it is something that is
happening.
"A lot of people shut up and don't discuss these feelings," said Salustri. These
feelings arose when she was repeatedly stolen from and disenfranchised by
her neighborhood and local representatives. The group continued asking
tough questions to find out whether it was a race problem, or if it was a
problem with the socioeconomic situation in her neighborhood.
, "It's hard to separate the class stuff, race stuff, and drug stuff," Deggans
explained. "Yea, I think it's a socioeconomic situation, not racism, because
you couldn't pay us to live in your neighborhood," another member agreed.

Pirate Days Invoke
Imagination
By Morgan Landis
There was plenty of plundering gbing
on this weekend at John Levique's Pirate
Days in Madeira Beach this weekend.
John's Pass Village was full of costumes,
plays, fights, and story telling during Fri- ,
day, Saturday and Sunday. The event in-
cluded a parade, ball, pub crawl and cos-
tume contests.
Pam and Mark Jones, from Tuscaloo-
saAlabama, brought their daughters to
the event after hearing there was a pi-
rate with a peg leg. Growing up they told .
their daughters a nighttime story about .
Peg Leg Bob, who tried to jump ships and
didn't make it because of his wooden leg.
Although Peg Leg Bob doesn't exist, pi- "
rate impersonator Chris Jeter was more
than happy to play the part, although his
professional name is Captain Sharkey.
Jeter lost his leg in a stint in the Navy,
and used his unique situation to get into
playing pirates more often.






Noelle Jones meets a fiction of her imagination
with Chris Jeter acting as Peg Leg Bob.

-1f-r" NEDV


H arbormaster Jimmy Ferguson
enjoyed his daily morning
walk around the marina. It
was a chance to get out of the office
into the fresh air and it was exercise
and it was an opportunity to clear
his head. It was also his duty, and
part of his job description, to check
the marina every morning and make
sure that everything was in order.
This morning, so far, everything
was: no problems that he could see;
no signs of vandalism; no suspicious
cars or other vehicles.
But the picture of normalcy changed
when he got to the Clam Bayou
Nature Park side of the marina.
There were fresh tire marks in the
soft ground, and they lead directly
to the seawall. There was nothing
"normal" about that.
Jimmy followed the tire marks to the
seawall and scanned the water just
beyond. The sun hadn't quite reached
this part of the marina, yet, so there
was little glare and he could see into
the water. And sure enough, there,
just below the surface, he could see
an automobile tire. Worse, it seemed
to be attached to the bottom of what,
at first glance, appeared to be a fairly
small car.
"Un-oh," he said, under his breath.
Jimmy reached for his cell phonb,
scrolled down through his electronic
phone book, and punched the "call"
button for the police department.

Jeremy looked at his wristwatch
again. It was almost a half hour
since he had opened the shop, which
meant that Lydia was almost a half
hour late. Should be arriving any
time now, he thought. And right on
cue, she burst through the door, in
a rush as she always was when she
arrived.
"You're late," Jeremy said, knowing
full well it wouldn't do a damn bit
of good. Criticizing her didn't help.
Saying nothing didn't help. Scowling
or acting upset didn't help. No
matter what he said or did, chances
were very good that, the next day,
she'd be late again and maybe even
40


later. So he settled
for pointing out her
lateness every time
B and then going about
his business after
she gave him her
standard response.
"You know I never
know what time it
is," Lydia said, again
right on cue.
Yeah, right, Jeremy thought. Then
why do you come rushing in like that,
and why are you never early? But he
didn't say anything more. What was
the point? It was all part of the game
they played.
Burnard, who was still hanging
around, didn't say anything either.
But he visibly brightened when she
came in. As he took a small sip from
the coffee cup he was still holding, he
followed Lydia with his eyes as she,
worked her way. through the, shop ,
and behind counter, where she stored .,
her purse on a shelf underneath. .
She was wearing what, for her, was,,-
a fairly typical work uniform: bright,.
pink blouse that showed a judicious
amount of cleavage, a dark skirt that
managed to be both short and snug,
and shoes that, though not high
heels, were obviously chosen to show
off her legs.
When she straightened up. Lydia let
out a small sigh, then smiled.'"poo
morning, Mr. Burnard," she said.
"Lovely day."
"Yes, it is," he ,answered.,smilin
broadly now.
"Can I help you with something
today?" she asked.
"Maybe so," he said. "I'm looking for.
a picture frame."
"Oh," she responded, "we have
some wonderful ones. Let me show
you." As she came out from behind
the counter, she put her hand on
Burnard's arm and guided him to a
display table in the back of the shop.
Jeremy took his cue and left, stepping
-out the front door to breathe a little
fresh air before tackling the bills
waiting on his desk in the storeroom.
The sun was above the tower on the
restaurant across the street, now,
and gaining heat by the minute. But
a nice breeze off the bay was building
to counteract it.
As he considered the tasks ahead
of him and mentally planned
his day, Jeremy began to get the
uncomfortable feeling he. was being
watched. So he turned his head and,


sure enough, the tailor, Lavery,
was sitting on the bench in front of
his shop, smoking another cigarette
- probably his tenth of the morning.
He was a chain smoker.
Lavery was an institution on the
street, and not just for his smoking
habits. He had been on the street so
long, no one could remember when
he wasn't.
Seniority he had, manners he didn't.
In fact, Jeremy often wondered how
he kept his customers, he was so
surly. "He must be either very good,"
he had said more than once, "or very
different behind that door." But since
he had never been inside Lavery's
shop, Jeremy didn't know which of
his two theories was true.
One thing he did know, though:
Lavery was a pain in the neck. He
took regular, constant smoke breaks,
always sitting on the bench in front
of his shop and always watching
the street like a hawk. In fact, his
neighboring shopkeepers referred to
him as "the watchdog."
And if anyone did anything he didn't
like, theywouldhear about it-usually
unpleasantly. If you parked behind
the building and your car overlapped
even an inch or two into what he
considered "his space," there would
be a nasty note on your windshield
when you left that evening. When
an artist down the street exhibited
a painting in his front window that
Lavery thought was in bad taste, the
police arrived in short order to take a
look at it. The only time he talked to
his neighbors seemed to be when he
was seeking information from one to
use against another.
So Jeremy decided not to bother
trying to speak to him, this time.
One attempt per day is enough, he
thought. Screw him. He headed back
into the shop and to the waiting pile
of bills on his desk.
As he passed by the counter, he
noticed that Lydia was ringing up a
sale to Burnard, and it wasn't just
any picture frame but one of the more
expensive ones.
That-a-girl, he thought. Earn your
keep.

This is a work of fiction. The events,
the people and, especially, the victims

Have you ever wished that you could
be someone else? I mean someone
specific, like, oh, Henry Kissinger
at the peak of his power, or Billy
Graham in his prime, or even Paris
Hilton, before she was sent to jail
(and then released and then put back
in, etc.).
Such wishful thinking is probably
a waste of time, except that
thinking, even the wishful variety,
is still thinking, and I would be hard
pressed to ever agree that thinking,
in any form, is bad. We would all
probably be better off if we spent less
time watching TV and more time
reading, listening, discussing and,
yes, thinking.
Anyway, I've been wishing in recent
years ever since I started writing
this column, matter of fact that I
could be Carl Hiaasen. I'm not even
sure how to pronounce his name
(Hay-sen or Hi-a-sen), but I wish I
could be more like him.
In case you don't know already, he's
a columnist for the Miami Herald,
an opinion columnist, sometimes
a political columnist, always an
interesting columnist. Background:
he was born and raised in South
Florida, has been writing for the
Herald since 1976 and writing a
column (usually on Sundays) since
1985. I don't get the Herald, but I go
online all the time to read his column.
And I love it.
I especially love his attitude, and
he has a lot of it. He's a bit cynical
and also, I suppose, a bit idealistic
and, frequently, he seems to have his
tongue planted firmly in his cheek.
He thinks that Florida is unique, that
it attracts more than its fair share of
whackos and crazies, and that far too
many of them wind up in public office
or positions of influence.
He was interviewed on "60 Minutes"
a while back, and the thing I most
remember about the segment is a
story he told. He was watching TV one
night with his wife, and OJ Simpson
was being interviewed shortly after
his infamous trial, probably the
second one. OJ said in the interview
that he was thinking about leaving


rish I could say

iat I said that

VIEWPOINT



California. Hiaasen turned to his
wife and said, "What do you bet he's
coming to Florida." And, of course,
he was right.
I also love the way Hiaasen writes,
the way he can turn a phrase, the
way he can sum up so much in a
sentence, mixing fact and his opinion
to make a point.
For instance, he wrote a recent
column about Don Imus, the shock
jock turned respectable who went top
far on a recent broadcast of his radip/
television show, then was dropped
by MSNBC and fired by CBS Radio.'
Hiaasen wrote that the first lesson'
learned from the brouhaha was that'
"the term 'nappy-headed hos' cannot
be disguised as a flash of satiri'
wit, especially when coming from a
65-year-old white guy who wears a
cowboy hat." I wish I had said that.
He finished the column by saying
that Imus will "probably surface,
again, after a suitable period b
contrition, with huge ratings on
another network. Don't be surprised
if the list of guests includes Al,
Sharpton and Jesse Jackson, who'*e0
never met a microphone they didn't'
like."
I wish I'd said that, too, all of it.
I wish I could have summed up the&
whole situation so pithily, with that
combination of humor and zing.
But I didn't write about the Imus
mess, figuring that it had little to do
with our lives here in Gulfport and,
besides, every talking head on every
news/talk show on television and
radio was already beating the story
to death.
Closer to home, he wrote recently
about the state's decision to move
the presidential primaries to an
earlier date, January 29, in the hope
of having a stronger voice and more
impact on the outcome. He agrees
with the move, so that we can "get
this exhausting spectacle over with
as soon as possible."
But "January is too far off. By
then, our new voting machines could
already be installed and ready to
malfunction." He thinks we should
hold them much sooner, and "ignite


-a nationwide trend that would
properly devalue the primaries and
bring some sanity back to politics,"
because, in reality, the primaries
are "a staged grind, providing few
moments of genuine illumination
or insight. The mission of every
candidate is to remain on-script, and
to escape from each state without
blurting something hopelessly stupid
or offensive."
Wow. I've talked about the long
and exhausting election seasons, but
never with that much sagacity and
relish.
Hiaasen is also concerned about the
environment, as he should be as we
all should be. I wish I could reprint
his entire recent column about our
dwindling water supply in Florida,
and how our politicians and leaders,
and all of us, really, don't want to
deal with it or, sometimes, even
acknowledge it.
"A 17-month drought has made a
puddle out of Lake Okeechobee," he
writes. "Parts of the Eyerglades are
drying up, while advancing seawater
endangers the well fields that serve
hundreds of thousands of residents."
But what do we do? We place
restrictions on lawn watering.
"Drought cycles here are nothing
new, but this is the first one to occur
with 18 million people encamped on
the peninsula. They might cut back
on sprinkling their geraniums, but
they won't stop taking showers or
washing their laundry. Not many
politicians are brave enough to cite
overpopulation as a cause of the
current crisis, though it is. There
are too many people using too much
water, but it's easier to blame the
weather."
The state was crisscrossed by
hurricanes and tropical waves in
2004 and 2005, but where is all that
water now? Down the drains of the
nearly half a million new residents
we added last year. It's predicted that
we'll have 20 million people in the
state within 3 years and 25 million
by.2025.
But, hey, as long as we can keep
selling those new houses and condos,
everything will be okay, right?
"Rains will come this summer, as
they always do, providing temporary
cover for politicians who don't want
to confront the water crisis."
I wish I could say "I wish I said
that," but I can't. Like too many of
us, I fear, I don't even know enough
to talk about the situation. Maybe
it's time to change that.

Protect Yourself
from Summer Heat
Floridians are entering the hottest
time of the year. With temperatures,
humidity and heat indexes soar-
ing, it's important for you to protect
yourself from heat-related illness.
People suffer heat-related illness
when their bodies are unable to
compensate and properly cool them-
selves. The body normally cools itself
by sweating. But under some condi-
tions, sweating just isn't enough. In
such cases, a person's body tempera-
ture rises rapidly. Very high body
temperatures may damage the brain
or other vital organs.
Because heat-related deaths are
preventable, it's important to be
aware of who is at greatest risk and
what actions can be taken to prevent
a heat-related illness or death. The
elderly, the very young, and people
with mental illness and chronic dis-
eases are at highest risk. However,
even young and healthy individuals
can succumb to heat if they partici-
pate in strenuous physical activities
during hot weather. Air-condition-
ing is the number one protective
factor against heat-related illness
and death. If a home is not air-
conditioned, individuals can reduce
their risk for heat-related illness
by spending time in public facilities
that are air-conditioned.
To protect your health when
temperatures are extremely high,
remember to keep cool and use com-
mon sense. The Pinellas County
Health Department offers these tips
for preventing heat-related illness:
Drink more fluids (nonalcoholic), re-
gardless of your activity level. Don't
wait until you're thirsty to drink.
Warning: If your doctor generally
limits the amount of fluid you drink
or has you on water pills, ask him
how much you should drink while
the weather is hot.
Don't drink liquids that contain
caffeine, alcohol, or large amounts
of sugar-these actually cause you to
lose more body fluid. Also, avoid very
cold drinks, because they can cause
stomach cramps.
Stay indoors and, if at all possible,
stay in an air-conditioned place. If
your home does not have air con-
ditioning, go to the shopping mall
or public library-even a few hours


Gabber June 14 June 20,2007


spent in air conditioning can help
your body stay cooler when you go
back into the heat. Call your local
health department to see if there
are any heat-relief shelters in your
area.
Electric fans may provide comfort,
but when the temperature is in the
high 90s, fans will not prevent heat-
related illness. Taking a cool shower
or bath, or moving to an air-condi-
tioned place is a much better way to
cool off.
NEVER leave any person or pet in
a closed, parked vehicle.
* Visit adults at risk at least twice a
day and closely watch them. for signs
of heat exhaustion or heat stroke. In-
fants and young, children, of course,
need much more frequent watching.
If you must be out in the heat:
*Try to limit your outdoor activity to
rtiorning and evening hours.
. Cut down on exercise. If you must
exercise, drink two to four glasses of
copl, nonalcoholic fluids each hour.
A sports beverage can replace the
salt and minerals you lose in sweat.
Warning: If you are on a low-salt


diet, talk with your doctor before
drinking a sports beverage. Remem-
ber the warning in the first "tip"
(above), too.
Try to rest often in shady areas.
Protect yourself from the sun by
wearing a wide-brimmed hat (also
keeps you cooler) and sunglasses
and by putting on sunscreen of SPF
15 or higher (the most effective prod-
ucts say "broad spectrum" or "UVA/
UVB protection" on their labels).'

X Marked the Spot
By Cathy Salustri

Almost two years ago The Gabber hid a geo-
cache in Clymer Park. Geocaching, a grown-up
type of scavenger hunt where people search for
a unknown location using a GPS (global posi-
tioning systems), started "officially" in 2000,
according to geocaching.com.
People who unearthed our Gulfport geocache
a found a logbook to sign as wellas a disposable
--- -camera to record their visit. While we don't
have names to go with these photos, we'd like
to congratulate all the seekers on a. job well
done.
Editor's Note: Although we have removed the
geocache, if you want to take your GPS for a
spin and see where we had it hidden, you can
do so at N27 44.847 W0820 42.472.

Avast Ye... Pirates: Dinner & Show


By Cathy Salustri

W HT Pirate's Dinner Ad-
.W H Lventure in Orlando.
Pirates, wenches, dinner,and drinks-
all under one roof.

IT ATT Years ago I used
W .H A. to live in Orlando
and I would joke that you could sell
tickets to anything if you simply put
the phrase "dinner and show!" be-
hind the name (imagine the
possibilities: Turner View-
point: Dinner and Show! or
Gulfport City Council: Din-
ner and Show!). Dinner and
Show attractions have grown
in popularity, so much so that
admission to one now costs as
much as a ticket to Disney.
Think of a dinner and show
as extreme dinner theatre.
For one price you get dinner,
drinks, and, in this instance, a
pirate themed show that takes
place on the deck of a galleon.
You become a prisoner- luckily
the prisoners on this pirate ship
eat well- and pirates fight for your re-
lease along with that of the princess.

WHENPirates perform
WHE two shows night-
ly: one at 6:00 and one at 8:30. The
doors open 90 minutes before each
show- get there early to avoid night-
marish lines at the appetizer sta-
tions, and to make sure you see the
preshow.

IITTTJ t D' 0 6400 Car-
WHERErier Drive,
Orlando.

TW H YT OK, we won't lie to
WL you- this show's a far
cry from Broadway. But you don't
go to a dinner adventure' to have a
Broadway style experience- you go
to eat and have fun, and that much,
Pirates Dinner Adventure delivers.
The arena style seating surrounds
the galleon, the waitresses dress like


wenches, and everything about your
pirate adven-
ture really
screams "pi-
rate:.
Picture the
Bay Area
Renaissance
Festival, in-
doors and sans
mulch.


BEST
Part: The aerialist. Pirates
swooping overhead and compet-
ing against each other make for
an engaging show, but watching
the princess' hand maiden per-
form aerobatics while suspend-
ed by her head outshines most
of the other performers. The
Smee-type character adds some
great comic relief and acts as
a wonderful emcee before the
show, too.


WORSI T h e
production values- the sound
system may have been on
the fritz while we were there, but we
found it almost impossible to under- I IT
stand a lot of what the performers .J. Question:
said. Fortunately, they're pirates- it $60 for adults and $39 for kids 3-11.
really isn't too hard to work out the Call for reservations- (800)866-2469.

exudes. nerAdventure.com and you get a dis-
count.
