City Seeks Tangerine
Park Grants
Gulfport City Council authorized the
submission of two grant proposals total-
ing $250,000 for Tangerine Park area
projects.
The first grant proposal seeks $50,000
from the Florida Recreation Development
Assistance Program (FRDAP) for the
development and construction of a bas-
ketball court in Tomlinson Park. The
project was previously submitted to the
FRDAP this past fiscal year but did not
receive funding.
"We intend to keep resubmitting this
proposal to the FRDAP until fund-
ing does become available," said Tom
Brobeil, city manager.
The second grant proposal to the
FRDAP is in the amount of $200,000 for
the development and construction of a
park setting multi-use pedestrian and
bicycle trail along the Tangerine Avenue
Parkway corridor.
The proposed project would include a
six foot wide shared use paved pathway.
See Tangerine Park, page 17


Scout Hall Renovations Re-bid
Gulfport advertised an invitation to bid for the

Works Department will advertise an Invitation to
Bid on September 16 for the renovation project.
The City will open the sealed bids on October 16.

on the counter of Gulfport Hardware Store, she
and her friends used it to go on a $2600 shopping

Drug Prescription Program for Gulfport Residents?


At Gulfport City Council's request,
City Manager -Tom Brobeil has re-
searched the drug discount cards
Pasco County issues its residents.
The cards, part of a program spon-
sored by the National Association
of Counties, can provide significant
discounts on prescription drugs for
local residents.
Brobeil spoke with County
Administrator Steve Spratt who
said he, too, had started looking
into the program. Spratt said when
he found out more information he
would call Brobeil and share that
knowledge.


PRORS {.I~ENERGY
HOEONES


Brobeil next called Pasco County
Assistant County Administrator
Daniel Johnson. Johnson's bureau
administers the prescriptions drug
card program for Pasco County.
Johnson told Brobeil that annual
dues for this organization cost
$8500, and Pasco County may cut
that membership from its budget.
Johnson said he has started inves-
tigating two alternative programs
with similar benefits for his resi-
dents.
Johnson will share his information
with Brobeil and, once he learns
more about the programs, Brobeil
said he will share it with Council.

City Pays Mediation Costs
Gulfport will pay $14,500 in a mediation case costs in the recent settlement of
Korhan A. Mutlu v. the City of Gulfport. According to City Attorney Tim Driscoll,
the mediation was held on August 23.
The agreement provides for settlement of all issues in the case. All parties will
be released and the action will be dismissed with prejudice. The plaintiff, Korhan
A. Mutlu, will be paid a total of $17,000: $14,500 from Gulfport and $2500 from
the city's insurer, Public Risk Management (PRM). PRM has provided the city's
defense of the action while denying coverage of any liability. PRM also paid the
mediator, Jim Yacavone.
The action arises from Mutlu's claim that liens on his property in 1999 were
invalid. At the time the city placed the liens, the property (located at 53rd Street
and 26th Avenue South) was used as a multi-family residential development
owned by the plaintiff. It has since been sold and redeveloped.
At the time, the Gulfport's code enforcement was part of the city's fire depart-
ment. The city cited Mutlu for violations arising from debris, vegetation, and
15 dead Australian pine trees. Notices were provided to the property owner,
and after receiving no response, the city had the violations corrected and filed
liens against tlhe subject's property. When Mutlu did not pay the liens the city
initiated foreclosure actions. The property owner paid the city's liens, including
all interest; costs, and attorney fees in the-amount of $16,800. The payment was
made under 6 protest because the property owner was contesting the validity of
the liens.
The property owner contended the city's notices were not issued in accordance.
with the requirements of city code, and that he was not given enough time to cor-
rect the violations on his own. These allegations became a suit against the city
which is the subject of the mediated settlement agreement. According to Driscoll
the alleged invalidity of the liens has not been conceded. However, when analyz-
ing the potential damages, including the plaintiffs attorney fees if he were to
prevail, the payment already received by the city, the contribution of the city's
insurer, and all the facts surrounding the case, council elected to settle the mat-
ter through the mediated process.

CELEBRATING 30 YEARS
We currently offer our oil changesat $20.93 with coupon using Kendall oil and WIX
oil filters. We purposely do not.have a fast lube bay, preferring to use our ASE-
certified professionals for oil 'services instead of an untrained quick-lube
employee. We also will not use "economy" oil filters. We feel it's deceptive to use
sub-standard parts or to put someone under your car who knows nothing about it
other than where the oil filter and drain are located. Part of what you should be
getting for your oil change money is complete periodic safety and maintenance
inspection, done with the intent of identifying and warding off possible problems.
An underpaid, unskilled quick-lube worker just isn't a good enough mechanic to

You may also park after 6 p.m. at

Exotic Bird Day



-i
a


By Morgan Landis
The Society for the Prevention of
Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) of Tam-
pa Bay hosted Safe Haven Avian
Placement Services on Sunday,
September 2 for a bird adoption
day. The two organizations have
been working together for almost
six years. The SPCA keeps smaller
birds in their care but gives the
larger birds to Safe Haven until
they get adopted.
Safe Haven uses the SPCA's fa-
cilities for adoption events for
their larger exotic birds. The two
agencies have shared care for over
100 birds- many were confiscation
cases- and about 20-30 of them got
adopted at this event.
PJ is a 25-year-old Double Yellow Head
Amazon who likes to talk a lot. His own-
er died and he's looking for a new one.

Life at 1000
By Cathy Salustri
Photos by Tom Gibson
Big planes make me nervous. Not
just a bit uneasy; climbing into, a
747 makes me xanax-popping, white
knuckle, drive-my-traveling-com-
panion-crazy nervous. But put me in
a small plane and the game changes.
I would give up my car tomorrow if
I could get everywhere I needed to
in a small plane. Oh, and if I had a
spare $350,000, which is about what
I would have to spend to get a repro-
duction of Tom Hurley's classic 1933
Waco UIC, the red biplane I recently
climbed into to get an aerial tour of
Fort Desoto and Gulfport.
I would have to buy a reproduc-
tion, because a quick internet
search turns up not one plane like
Hurley's. The closest thing I found
was the YMC 1935 reproduction.
Waco built just under 90 of planes
like Hurley's in 1933, but Hurley
says that "there's probably about a
.dozen still flying." Of those 12, he
flies one owned by newspaper mogul
William Randolph Hearst.. Hearst's
corporation bought the plane new
in 1933 and flew it for business and
pleasure for several years. 56 years
later, the plane ended up in Tom
Hurley's hangar at St. Petersburg's
Albert Whitted airport.
Like the Hearst corporation,
Hurley uses the Waco for business
and pleasure, offering sightseeing
tours over the beaches, a combina-
tion of his business and his passen-
gers' pleasure. On the morning I ride
with him, he flies us to Fort DeSoto.
We race down' the edge of runway 6
(which means the runway faces 60
degrees on the compass, or slightly
northeast) towards the water, and
there's this amazing moment pilots

Your Personal Injury
Rights Part 2
In our last article, we explored basic
coverage issues for personal injury
protection (PIP) benefits. In this ar-
ticle, medical payments/benefits and
certain exclusions to PIP coverage
will be examined.
Medical Payments:
PIP pays eight percent (80%) of
the medical benefits for reasonable
and necessary expense for surgery,
medical services, x-rays and reha-
bilitative services. Reasonable and
necessary hospital, ambulance and
nursing case services are similarly


covered. Wheelchairs, neck braces,.
splints and crutches are also nor-
mally covered.
Disability Benefits:
PIP coverage compensates a named
insured for sixty percent (60%) of
disability benefits for loss in income
and a loss of earning capacity which
results because of an injury sus-
tained in a motor vehicle accident.
Disability benefits also cover other
expenses for household services
which, but for the motor vehicle in-
jury, the injured person would nor-
mally perform.
Exclusions:
An insurance company may deny
PIP benefits to someone who oper-
ates a motor vehicle without the
consent of an insured. Similarly, an
insurance company may prohibit
benefits to be paid to someone who
is injured while driving a motor ve-
hicle if: (1) they are injured while
committing a felony or (2) injuries

occur when a person intentionally
cause injury to himself/herself.
PIP Benefit Payments:
When reasonable proof of a loss
and expenses are provided to an
insurance company, PIP benefits
are payable as losses are incurred.
Generally, PIP benefits are primary
coverage over other insurance cov-
erages. However, workers' compen-
sation coverage may be primary in
some circumstances. PIP benefit
payments are required to be paid
with a thirty (30) day period after an
insurance company receives written
notice of a covered loss that is ad-
equately documented with the total
amount of the claim.

Hello Autumn
The Art Guild of Treasure Island
members have given us a bright
new show hanging in the T.I. Com-
munity Center. Exhibiting through
the end of October are Sheila Crain,
Peter Garino, Barbara Hawk, Low-
ell MacCartney and Grace Porter.
This week we introduce first-
timer Sheila Crain, native of Eng-
land, who brings us four dramatic,
realistic oils. Her extensive train-
ing in England, France and Italy
is evident in her bold seascapes:
"The Race", "Setting the Spinna-
ker" and my favorite, "Ocean", in-
side a breathtaking wave. And to
demonstrate her versatility she
offers a serene beach scene, "Eve-
ning Surf'.
Signature member of both the Flor-
ida and Suncoast Watercolor Soci-
eties, Lowell MacCartney, needs
no intro to our local art lovers. He
has turned every-day scenes into
fresh, colorful paintings. An old
house he names "Artifacts" shows
off the paddle boat, "Starlite Prin-
cess", and a colorful .row of news-
stands he labels "News". But for
composition, color and eye appeal,
"The Corner" stands out, showing a
close-up view of a front porch with
red brick and blue shutters.
Barbara Hawk moved from Ohio
to Florida some 20 years ago. For
our season opener she has chosen
four watercolors, both landscapes
and still life: "Storm in Venice",
"Heading Home" and "Please Paint
Me". Finally, her still life "Help
Yourself' begs the viewer to bite
into a luscious pear, a shiny red
apple or maybe one of the bright
yellow bananas hanging on the
curved stand.
Come visit our Community Cen-
ter soon on Park St. and 106th Ave.

visiting hours.

Patriot's Day Remembrance Ceremory
by Greg Stemm
The city of South Pasadena remembered the fallen heroes of September 11,
2001 with a special ceremony at the South Pasadena Fire Department on
Tuesday morning. About 60 people, including the mayor, city commission-
ers, visiting dignitaries from other cities, representatives from the Pinellas
County Sheriffs department, and the South Pasadena Fire Department at-
tended.
Fire Chief Dayton Saltsman reminded the crowd that 343 firefighters, 60
police officers and 50 other first responders lost their lives during the terror
attacks.
Lieutenant Rachel Hughes from the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office said "In
watching the events unfold on that day, I felt helpless. As a first responder I
wanted to be there, but nothing touches me more than being a first responder
here at home. Without forgetting the big national events that draw attention
to how important first responders are to our safety and well being, I would
like to ask you to thank a first responder today for being on the front lines
in our communities for things like auto accidents and house fires or even to
rescue helpless animals."
The crowd sang America The Beautiful and observed a moment of silence at
8:46 a.m., the moment that American Flight 11 impacted the north tower of
the World Trade Center. Mayor Dick Holmes recognized all first responders
on staff for the city of South Pasadena.

This N' That in
South Pasadena
By Sibylle Stajich
A Paleontological Lecture
Quite an interesting history of
shells and fossils in Florida was
presented by Todd Magin, a Pale-
ontoldgist very active in our local
water region when he talked to
me.
Starting in 1976 when he gradu-
ated high school in St. Pete, he
always found great pleasure in
dredging for sharks' teeth on the
Isle of Capri in Treasure Island.
He advanced to Bakerstooth Hill
in California (also called Sharks
Hill) where he searched rivers,
beaches and deep pits for fossils.
Orange Coast College in Califor-
nia (managed by the University of
So. California) helped to widen his
knowledge.
At the University of Gainesville
many older vets (also paleontolo-
gists) who started out as doctors of
chemistry, anatomy, physiology,
etc. assisted him in recognizing
fossils. For example, an Econoid,
one of the newer ones, an Ecphora
(snail), a gastropod which is of a
large group of mollusks having
one piece spiral shells like a snail
and Murex (a sea mussel with a
rough shell) and many other disc
shaped fossils.
Digging them out of the sand isn't
always so simple. Some have to be
flushed out with water. He has a
fossil sand dollar found in Moroc-
co which is much smaller than the
ones found here as well as a fossil-
ized crab which he found 30-45 ft.
down in the sand and had to use a
drill with diamond bits to remove
it. This man is really a fountain
of knowledge about fossils and
shells and is proud and happy to
talk about them.
Fire Department
During the month of August
there were' 221 total calls for the
department, 55 for Fire and 166
for EMS.

Gulfport Whys
Have you got a question?
E-mail your request to News@theGabber.com
By Cathy Salustri

Q What, exactly, is the "new" 49th Street Neighborhood Center used
for? Why did the city build it?

A : It took not one but two city officials to ferret out the answer to this one.
Fred Metcalf, part of Gulfport's Community Development, told us that the city
built the 49th Street Neighborhood Center to extend community activities into
the 49th Street area of the city. Prior to building the 49th Street Neighborhood
Center, community activities took place mostly in the Arts District. Building a
neighborhood center further east in Gulfport hopefully makes activities more
accessible to all Gulfportians- and it allows the city to offer more activities.
Anyone, not just city staff or groups, has access to the Center. All you have to
do is call Leisure Services at 893-1070 and ask. Gulfport Public Works staffs
the Neighborhood Center "so the doors are open" all day.
So how's that working out for the City? According to Leisure Services Director
Jim O'Reilly, right now you can go to the 49th Street Neighborhood Center for
senior adult exercise (such as Tai-Chi), neighborhood or community meetings
(like Economic Development and Crime Watch), classes, Weight Watchers,
and community health programs.

The Arts Center: September for Members .


A review by Morgan Landis


The Arts Center has dedicated the
month of September to their mem-
bers with their exhibit re: Member
September'. Over 350 member artists
have their work displayed, using ev-
ery medium from sculpture to mo-
siac. Kevin Dean, a curator from the
Ringling College of Art. and Design,
took time this past weekend to judge
the pieces. so I figured I would too.
One of my favorite pieces- and not*
because of its.technique or message,-
was Emily Ayers' Feather Box. It al-
most looks like a bird house, made
with feathers. A question for Ayers:
are they real feathers? It's a piece
of art you want to run your hands
across (I think there's a rule about
no touching in museums), or that
your cat would enjoy curling up on.
Either way, it was fascinating to
stare at, and considering my short
attention span, the fact I stood there
for 20 seconds was a big deal.
Another big deal was Jealousy by
Marty Ison. Dean gave this piece an


honorable mention, and I
agree. The dark colors and
shadows, with the words
love and hate listed repeat-
edly, reminded me of the
mental aguish caused by a
torrid love affair.
Someone I love is Sal- '
vador Dali; his museum is
half the reason I moved to
St. Petersburg. I was ex-
cited to see on the program
a piece titled A Portrait of
an Evening with Salvador
Dali by Tim Hutton, but
the childish painting of the
In Voluptas Mors photo-
graph left me disappointed.
At least Sema Bicik's Red Christina
Moon put me in a better artworks
mood with its surrealistic
theme, although the negative space
wasn't used as well as Dali could
have done.
Dean chose Nel Bringsjord's Mid
Century Madonna as Best of Show.
This version of Madonna and Child
had a modern-looking vWoman in a

red dress posing next to an ador-
able blond child with a halo. The
oil painting, was too contrived and
smooth. The colors are vibrant, and
the technique beautifully done, but
to see one of the most iconic figures
in history and not be in awe means
there is something missing.
Bringsjord's version didn't impress
me as much as Laura Mae Dooris'
version in Crossing Paths. At first it
looks like a few drawings on some old
wallpaper, but if that was all it was,
then why did I keep coming back to
it? The figures have their heads low-
ered with a barbed wire fence hold-
ing them back, yet a dozen roses sat
full and blooming at the top. It's a
beautiful feeling to see something
and understand it; it's what I call
art, and why I pick this piece as my
Best of Show.
I would continue about all the art-
work I saw, but I recommend you
seeing it multiple times. There is
something for everyone, with pho-
tography (I loved Tim Fritz's Morn-
ing Fog) to Florida art (such as Deb-
orah Sharp's Real Florida). The Arts
Center is located at 719 Central Av-
enue. Gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 5
p.m. Monday through Saturday, and
Sunday 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. The ex-
hibit continues until September 30.

Photo by Greg Stemm
About a dozen downtown merchants and Gulfport residents joined the Gulfport Mer-
chant's Association team to help raise money and awareness at the 4th annual AIDS Walk
St. Petersburg on Saturday, September 8. About 30 teams and individuals representing
2,030 walkers raised $117,000 dollars to help benefit ASAP (AIDS Service Association of
Pinellas) and For AIDS Care Today (FACT). 100% of the money remains in Pinellas County
to benefit those living with HIV/AIDS.

M aybe you read my column
three weeks ago about the
outdoor music in downtown
Gulfport and all the problems it's
causing. Somebody must have read
it because, boy, did I open a can of
worms. I can't, remember when I've
gotten as much response from a single
column.
- Virtually everyone who wrote
mne (e-nailed me, actually) lives in
Gulfport, most of them in the affected
area. They're real people with real,
complaints. I'll let them speak for
themselves. If there's anyone out
there who thinks this problem has
been solved by the City Council, read
on.
From FH: "I think you have a great
solution to the music in downtown
Gulfport. In the 70s, I lived behind
O'Maddy's and every weekend they
had music. The problem was when
they started opening the doors so
all the neighborhood could hear the
music. Every weekend we had to call
the police, they would go there and
tell them to close the door, and then
it was not a problem. Since there was
no ordinance, we had t-Tkeep calling;
what a hassle. We finally moved to
York Street. When there is a west
wind blowing, we still hear all the
music from downtown. So it will need
to be an ordinance that says what you
suggest no drums and no amps."
From BB: "I moved to Gulfport to
be close to the activity. I no longer
wanted to rely on my car to take me
out at night. I realized that I was
moving to an area where music and
festivals dominate the environment.
I agree with you on the amplification
of the music. The venues where the
music happens are small and when
amplification is used, the. music
becomes unenjoyable because you
cannot carry on a conversation with
anyone, even the bartender to order
a dririk. I, too, would go out more
to listen to the music if it wasn't
screaming in my ears at all the
outdoor venues.
"I -support your comments about
compromise and away with the
amplifiers for outside. You should
share this information with the bar


The "music of

the night" goes

on and on

Roger Turner
VIEWPOINT

and restaurant owners. Maybe they
don't realize that amplification is a
negative rather than a positive."
From EB: "Thank you for speaking
about the noise pollution that has
invaded Gulfport, even in the few
years I've lived here. Although
I'm blessed to have the temporary
quietude of Ronal Park on 54th Street
to contemplate, I can still appreciate
that amplified music, particularly at
night, is detrimental to neighborhoods
as well as to neighboring businesses.
I was in Domain one night and could
barely continue a conversation, what
with the "entertainment" across the
street at AquaBella."
From JS (with copies sent to all
council members and to the city
manager): "As a resident of the
waterfront business district, I wish
to express my thanks for writing the
article regarding the problem of the
noise levels of outdoor music at our
local restaurants, and suggesting
what I view as a win/win solution. You
may remember that I have personally
addressed this issue at several council
'meetings in the past. I request,
therefore, that (your) suggestion of
a revised ordinance addressing noise
abatement allowing outdoor music
but not amplified music and drums -
be placed on the agenda at the next
meeting of the City Council."
And from BH, the longest e-mail I
received: "You get it.. You actually
get it. You're a person who actually
understands the problem with the
'music of the night.' Even better, you
have a solution to the problem.
"I have lived in Gulfport since 1982,
and for the past ten years, I have lived
within one block of the Peninsula Inn.
For years, it was an eyesore. Then
after several failed attempts, it was
remodeled and opened for business,
and it became a jewel in our crown.
Then the music started. Oh, boy, did it
start. My neighborhood has not been
the same since. The music is good,
but the noise level is HORRIBLE.
"My neighbors and I complained
to the police, who referred us to
the council, who referred us to the
ordinance department, who referred
us to the council, who told us to call


the police' to complain about the
noise. We attended council meetings.
We have complained so much that
we are no longer taken seriously.
Council members indicated that the
revenue from the inn was important
to the city and that overrides a little
inconvenience to the surrounding
neighborhood (it's nice to know where
we stand).
"One beautiful, cool evening, I had to
close my windows and retreat to my
back bedroom in order to hear my TV.
I finally called the police, who sent a
patrolman to my house with a decibel
meter, and he proceeded to take a
reading from my front yard. He said
the reading fell within acceptable
levels. DUH! The reading should have
been made at the source, for Heaven's
sake. If the reading would have been
at an acceptable leyel at the source, I
would not have found it necessary to
complain.
"The decibel equipment on the
amplifiers doesn't work. They disable
it. One of my neighbors actually
heard one of the musicians announce,
laughingly, that they were going to
take a break before someone called
the cops to complain about how loud
they were playing. There isno reason,
in my opinion, to have amplifiers
when the musicians are only ten feet
away from tAe audience.
"Time restrictions are ignored; 11
becomes 11:20, 10 becomes 10:30, and
so.,on. My neighbors across the street
have to be at work at 7 a.m. They have
to go to bed at a reasonable hour, but
it's hard to sleep with music pounding
in your ears. They have actually
considered selling their house and
moving from Gulfport.
"I feel I have an uninvited guest
in my living room who doesn't have
the good manners to go home when
I want to go to bed. Your article
should be required reading for council
members. I hope something comes of
this. Your solution is perfect. You
make good common sense."
And that, dear readers, is all I have
room for.
Has the problem been solved?
Obviously not. Will anything come
of this? I have no idea. Is anyone
listening? I don't know, but if anyone
is, I don't know who they are.
One positive note: the mayor has
said he intends to begin holding a
series of town meetings, soon, where
people can voice their concerns in a
more open. atmosphere that is more
conducive to' discussion. Maybe
that will be a better setting for this
discussion than City Council hearings
have been, so far.

Jeremy knew he shouldn't have

gone to Wood Ibis Park, shouldn't
have made the late-night trip to
look at the "scene of the crime." And
he most certainly shouldn't have been
seen doing it.
He wouldn't have, if he'd known that
the young detective was lurking in the
shadows. He wouldn't have stopped,
would have driven on by. But he didn't
know, hadn't seen a police car hadn't
seen any car,, for that matter. So he
had stopped.
And now, for all he knew, he was
probably considered a "person of
interest," as they say on the news
shows. The perpetrator revisiting the
scene of the crime, or something like
that. A suspect.
And it probably hadn't helped when
he gave the detective a flippant answer,
saying, no, he didn't visit crime scenes
"often." So he'd tried to explain, saying
that he had seen the report on the late
news and was just curious, just wanted
to see the scene for himself. And he
apologized again, saying, "I know I
shouldn't be here," that he was sorry.
But he didn't think the detective
bought it. Even at midnight, in the
dark, he could see that much. So he
figured, difficult as it would be, he
was going to have to tell the police the
truth, sooner or later.
And the truth was, he had visited a
crime scene before, and it was very
much like this one. Except that it was
back in Charleston.
Back then, his mother was being
treated for cancer, a disease that
she eventually survived. But they
didn't know that, then, so Jeremy
had gone home to visit and to offer a
little emotional support. He had said
goodbye to Matt, promising that he
would return in two days.
When he returned, the house was
empty and the answering machine was
flashing. It turned out to be a message
asking him to call the Charleston Police
Department. He did, shaking so 'badly
he could barely punch the numbers
into the phone. That's when he found
out that Matt was dead.

t.
His body had been found in a city
park the previous morning, strangled
and with a blow to the head. They
weren't sure, yet, which was the cause
of death.
In the surreal days that followed,
Jeremy found out that Matt had gone
to a bar the night before, the first night
Jeremy was gone, to meet a friend for
a drink. The friend had left an hour
or so later; Matt had stayed. That's
the last thing that anyone knew about
his whereabouts. No one else in the
bar could recall seeing him talking to
anyone else and no one had seen him
leave. His car was still parked in front
of the bar the next day.
To make things worse, if that was
possible, it turned out that another
young man had disappeared from the
same bar six weeks earlier. His body
had been discovered in his apartment
a few. days later, also strangled but
with a plastic bag over his head. It was
thought that the two cases might be
linked, but neither was ever solved.
Jeremy had gone back to that
Charleston park several, times in
the days and weeks following Matt's
murder. The last time was the night
before he moved to Gulfport. He was
hoping he would learn something,
detect something, feel something -
make some connection that would help
him understand what had happened.
But he never did.
And now, he figured he was going
to- have to explain those visits to a
different set of police detectives, so
they could understand why he was
drawn to this park in this town in the
middle of the night.

Jeremy shook his head, bringing
himself back to the present, and looked
at his watch. Time to open up, he
thought, so he unlocked the front door
to his shop and began his morning
routine of carrying merchandise
outside to display on the sidewalk.
He wasn't quite finished when a black
Lexus pulled into a parking space and
George Ardis climbed out.
"Hello, there," he called out to Jeremy.


"Is Lydia here?"
"No, not yet," Jeremy answered,
"but she should be here soon." He was
tempted to add something about "she's
always late," but thought better of
it. Maybe Ardis thought punctuality
was important, so Jeremy didn't want
to be responsible for damaging her
reputation with the man.
Ardis followed Jeremy back into
the shop, practically bubbling with
enthusiasm.
"I'm anxious to see her this morning,"
he said. "I have a surprise for h'er."
He flipped open a jewelry box he was
carrying in his hand and proudly
displayed it in front of Jeremy. "What
do you think?" he asked, then answered
his own question. "Beautiful, isn't it?"
The box contained a bracelet, a
double strand of stones that'appeared
to Jeremy to be diamonds and rubies;
And, yes, it was quite stunning.
Jeremy nodded. "Very much," he
said.
"At dinner the other night," Ardis
continued, "Lydia indicated that she
might be willing to entertain a proposal
of marriage. So I thought this might
provide a little encouragement. What
do you think?"
Jeremy couldn't help smiling. "Well,"
he said, "it would certainly encourage
me."
Ardis laughed, pleased with himself.
"Good," he said. "And it set me back
a pretty penny, believe me. But she's
worth it, don't you think?"
Jeremy didn't know how to answer
that question, so he said, "M-m-m."
Satisfied with the reaction he had
gotten, Ardis pulled a cigar out of his
jacket and began to light it.
"Sorry," Jeremy said. "You can't smoke
that in here."
"Oh, yes, of course," Ardis said, a bit
flustered. "That's quite all right. I'll
just smoke it outside while I wait for
my beloved."
You do that, Jeremy thought. Wait for
your beloved outside. Then he fished
in his pocket for the change to buy a
newspaper.

This is a work of fiction. The events,
the people and, especially, the victims
are all fictional as well. No similarity
to real people or real events is intended.
Next week: Chapter 5 continues as the
latest victim is identified.
