By Greg Stemm
A second resolution in as many
Gulfport council meetings to con-
sider the hiring of a full time city
attorney failed on Tuesday eve-
ning, effectively ending discussion
on the topic, at least for now.
The resolution failed by a unan-
imous no vote, although council
members appeared to have widely
different reasons for their nega-
tive response.
Council members King, Phillips
and Stull all did agree that they
did not think the proposed resolu-
tion before them addressed the is-
sues discussed at the last council
meeting.
"I thought that this resolution
was going to form a committee
to address whether we thought
we should consider hiring a full
time attorney," said Stull. "This
one makes it seem like we have
already made the decision to hire
someone if we can find a qualified

Gulfport Keeps Building Permits In-House


By Greg Stemm
Gulfport city council reached a
consensus on Tuesday evening to
give the city manager six months
to address concerns about the city's
building permitting and inspections
department and to keep the opera-
tions in house. The concerns which
had included staffing issues and ser-
vice quality problems had prompted
council td consider the option of out-
sourcing the operations to an outside
entity such as the county, the city of
St. Petersburg or to a private con-
tractor.
City Manager Tom Brobeil, who
is recovering from recent surgery
and participated in Tuesday's coun-
cil meeting via webcam, told council
that he had reviewed all the detailed
information provided by the proposed
outside sources. He then 'told coun-
cil that he thought that some of the
perceived problems within the city's
building department could be ad-
dressed by supervisory intervention
by his office and asked the council to
consider a six month period for him
to do so with another review at that
time:
"I'd like to thank all the organi-
zations who made presentations to
the council," said Brobeil. "After re-
viewing all the options I would rec-
ommend to council that we either


consider rebuilding and revamping
our own department or consider con-
tracting these services to a private
contractor."
Brobeil had written to council in his
final report to them that "The sub-
mittal provided by St. Petersburg,
while intriguing,' has many caveats
and conditions. In the city manager's
estimation, it would be difficult to ne-
gotiate a workable agreement provid-
ing high quality, long term service for
city residents."
He went on to say "It should also
be noted that Pinellas County, while
offering the services of a sophisti-
cated organization with an excellent
track record, is only willing to make
a minimal commitment to providing
on-site assistance to contractors and
residents. Staff has found that a very
high level of face-to-face assistance
is required to help residents, who in
Gulfport attempt their own construc-
tion projects to a much greater degree
than found in other areas."
He noted "...three private compa-
nies have submitted options for pro-
viding the necessary level of on-site
support to effectively assist residents
with their 'do-it-yourself projects.
They appear...to have the capabil-
ity of providing services that may be
better tailored to Gulfport's unique
needs."


"We need to have stability in this de-
partment," said Michael Yakes, may-
or. "I want to thank Tom for step-
ping forward to address the concerns
that have been brought forth on this
issue. Assistance and consideration
should be our primary concerns when
it comes to providing this service to
our residents."
Prior to the council's vote to extend
the six month trial period of rebuild-
ing and revamping the department
a number of residents and local con-
tractors spoke in support of the city's
building, permitting and inspections
department.
"I recently completed a renovation
project on my house and the city was
very efficient," said Bob Feckner,
resident. "My contractor also com-
mented on how much he liked work-
ing with our city department. I think
it is in the best interest of the city to
keep it in house"
"At a time when the Florida League
of Cities is being a champion of keep-
ing home rule, I don't think we should
let the camel's nose of outsourcing
into our tent, said Lee Stapella, res-
ident. "Once you do, it's awfully hard
to go back."
"If we are not able to address the
concerns that were originally brought
up regarding staffing and service and
rebuild our department in the next
six months then I may come back to
you with a recommendation to con-
sider sending out proposals for a pri-
vate contractor to assume this role,"
said Brobeil. "But I really think it is
a viable option to keep it in house."

St. Pete Keeps Celebration Fired Up
By Shelly Wilson
This year marks the 100th t
anniversary of the estab- d
lishment of an official Fire
& Rescue Department in
the City of St. Petersburg.
As the Gabber has reported
before, St. Pete is marking
the occasion by holding an
.open house at every sta -
tion (there are 13 of them
in the 'city), each month
corresponding with the fire
house number.
Saturday, on the last
weekend in September, Sta- .
tion #9 (the Lake Pasadena
Station at 475 66th Street
North) was celebrated with
refreshments, educational
displays, and the always-
popular tours of the house.
equipment, and trucks. Lieutenant Ed ILyons helped kids to ring the historic fire
"Years ago, we used to do bell, "Clanger," at Saturday's open house. "Kids love fire
this kind of thing all the stations," Lyons said, "and I don't blame them. After 29
time," said Station #9 Lieu- years, I still love coming to work."
tenant Ed Lyons, a 29-year
veteran of the Department. "With the new Homeland Security restrictions,
we can't do it as much, so this gives us a chance to open up to people."
From 9 a.m. to noon, dozens of people -.largely wide-eyed kids leading their
parents and grandparents flowed in and out of the station, climbing on the
trucks, trying on firefighter boots and ringing the historic fire bell.
"This is what they used to use to call the volunteer firefighters," said Lyons,
putting a hand on the huge bronze relic. The bell, one of two that was discov-
ered in a building near Lake Maggorie in the late eighties, was restored and
now makes its home in Station #9. On Saturday, visitors were invited to ring
the old alarm, which was muffled by foam padding.
"When this thing really rings, you can here it for miles," Lyons explained,
"so I call it 'Clanger."'
For information on 'upcoming Fire Station open houses, check the City's
website at www.stpete.org.

CELEBRATING 30 YEARS
We currently offer our oil changes at $20.93 (with coupon) using Kendall oil and
| WIX oil filters. We purposely do not have a fast lube bay, preferring to use our
F 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 a 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
help you protect your investment.

How is Your Legal Health?
Part I
As with your physical well-being,
you can avoid major legal problems
by periodically checking the status of
your legal health. Some of the areas
in which you may wish to consider
getting a legal "check-up" are estate
planning, wills, trusts, insurance
coverage, financial investments and
retirement planning. A review of
your legal affairs on an annual ba-
sis to ensure that all relevant legal
documents meet your current needs
is recommended.
Many times, a yearly legal check-
up will uncover legal problems that
can be corrected before they cause a
major problem. For example, with
a birth or death of a loved one, you
may wish to reevaluate your will,
trust or estate plan. Like a physi-
cian or dentist, a lawyer is trained
to diagnose legal problems or mala-
dies and recommend cures. During
your legal checkup, a review of your
family affairs, real estate holdings,

If a "fix" is required to your legal
health, a lawyer should be able to
anticipate what remedial action is
necessary before a minor problem
becomes a costly disaster. In upcom-
ing segments of this publication, we
will together explore some of the
common legal problems uncovered
by a legal checkup. As with a medi-
cal problem, it is important to see a
lawyer as early as possible, that is,
before a legal problem occurs, or if
there is already a legal problem, be-
fore it becomes more aggravated and
costly.

A satirical look at the world around us.
Going Green


By Anne Rush


everyone's going green these
days. Forgive me, I just don't
understand it all.
I'm not saying that raising aware-
ness and awakening consciousness is
a bad thing. And I agree that maybe
we need to think about our collective
impact on the planet.
But right now I just need to pay my
rent and switch a load of laundry. I'm
a working mother and have enough
guilt to go around without adding the

planet to my to-do list.
In the small picture of daily life, I
don't care about the environment.
I don't much worry about the type of
planet that I'm leaving to my children
or grandchildren and here's why. In a
year, I'll have three (count 'em) three
teenagers and God knows they know
everything so I'm sure they'll be able
to figure it all out.
I fully admit that years ago when
they were babies, I was totally into

disposable diapers without a thought
as to the landfills. But if I had it to do
again today, I'd at least buy the ones
with extra leak-guard protection.
And speaking of landfills, just where
does the Consumer Product Safety
Commission put all those recalled
products? What do they do with
them? Hmm.
I don't believe in global warming.
Maybe coz I've lived in Florida for so
long now that I take some perverse
pleasure in knowing that say, Maine,
has experienced triple digit temera-
tures now and again.
Don't quote me on this, but I don't
think the Ice Age was very good for
the planet as a whole either. And just
think of the ramifications had the
Titanic set sail today as opposed to
say, when it did. Leonardo DiCaprio
would be waiting tables right now.
I don't care about endangered spe-
cies, either. That's what zoos are for.
It's all about survival of the fittest
and always has been. Look at ants
and roaches and learn.

Having said all of that, I am trying
to do my part in my own small way.
I don't have a garbage disposal in
the left side of my kitchen sink, so I
suppose that my compost pile could
be found in the garbage bag where
the banana peels, egg shells and cof-
fee grounds are meshing. And ironi-
cally, attracting not sea turtles or sea
cows but ants and roaches. Does that
count?
Our above-ground swimming pool
certainly went green this summer,
Does that count?
Our own USF Bulls sure looked great
in green on Friday night prime time
last week and now all businesses as-
sociated with them are seeing gold.
But perhaps my environmental ten-
dencies today can be traced to the way
I was raised. The only thing green I
can remember in my more nostaglic
moments are S&H green stamps!

Committee, from front page

person in our salary range. But I
don't think we can't advertise for a
position that does not exist. We don't
have an open position right now.
The position of full time city attorney
does not exist. We have not made
that decision as a council, yet we are
considering forming a committee as
if we have," she said.
King said she thought the commit-
tee was going to examine the pos-
sibility of hiring an attorney within
certain parameters as established
by the council at the last meeting.
Among these was a salary in the
range of $75-90,000, and candidates
with multiple levels of legal expertise
that were qualified to work in munic-
ipal law.
"It seems to me there are three is-
sues," said King. "One is whether we
can find a qualified candidate who is
willing to work for the money we are
offering. Two is if the person is qual-
ified to meet the criteria we establish
for the job; and three, can that person
work in our city environment?"
"I don't like the phrase '...possibility
of having a full time city attorney',"
said Ted Phillips, vice mayor. "That
phrase needs to be changed to 'feasi-
bility'. Those are two very different
things. 'Feasibility' indicates wheth-
er the city could even afford the po-
sition, 'possibility' indicated more
whether we would want the position
or not. I can't vote for this resolution
with the word 'possibility' in it."
Council member Bob Worthington,
who has been a strong opponent to
the whole idea of hiring a full time
attorney made the motion on the
resolution forcing a call to comment.
He refused to accept an amendment
to change the resolution to read 'fea-
sibility'."
"I think we ought .to find out if
we have an opening for an attorney
instead of sitting here having this
discussion and making Tim won-
der if his days are numbered," said
Worthington, referring to current city
attorney Tim Driscoll. Driscoll works
as a contract part time employee paid
through a retainer and on an hourly
basis for certain services.
"We need to end this conversation
tonight," said Worthington.
"I still think that a study makes
a good idea, is logical, and allows us


to consider options we have not con-
sidered before," said Michael Yakes,
mayor. "It would not be unusual for
a city like ours to conduct a survey
and benefits analysis of such a hire
unless we were actually advertising
for the position."
Once the resolution as proposed
failed, council member King at-
tempted to reintroduce the resolu-
tion changing the word "possibility"
to "feasibility" and also eliminating a
section of it which included the word-
ing "...examination of all costs in-
curred for a full qualified attorney."
King argued that the costs were being
outlined in advance by council. Her
motion failed for lack of a second.

ing about the City Council meeting
held on Tuesday the 18th.
The talk was about hiring a full
time attorney. After discussing all
the cuts that the city has to make
this year to fit the budget, they
discussed this position. Our part
time attorney, Tim Driscoll, has
been with Gulfport for 17 years and
has handled almost all of our legal


situations. The citizens
understand, along with
cilmqmbers, that we don'
need a full time attorney a
Why couldn't the others h
The council is supposed

for us, then they have the
ability of listening to us. He

Public Comment

& Council Quotes
Excerpts heard at the October 2, 2007 Gulfport City Council Meeting

"I would like every citizen of the city to send me a picture which
they think reflects what their perception of Gulfport is to them.
Residents may email them to me at mstull@ci.gulfport.fl.us or mail
them to my attention or drop them off at city hall at 2401 53rd
Street South. I'd like to put together a display for presentation at
city hall or the library or at another public location." Council mem-
ber Mary Stull (Ward 4/Tangerine Park) in the Other Business segment.

"If we lose the ability to disagree amicably as a city then we haveproblems.
I don't believe we will ever have a complete consensus on sensitive issues,
but we must examine them and consider alloptions." MichaelYakes, mayor.
"I'm not even sure it would be legal for us to advertise a posi-
tion that we don't have. Before we look for someone to fill a
seat, we'd better make sure the seat is open." Council member Bob
Worthington during the discussion regarding the city attorney committee.

"My concern is that if you start doing studies to consider the feasibility
or possibility of hiring a full time city attorney that it will get a life of
its own and you will lose site of the option of doing nothing at all." Al
Davis, resident, speaking in public comment regarding the proposed resolu-
tion forming a committee to look into hiring a full time attorney for the city.

"I'd like to know why in some city meeting the camera stays on the entire
council and at other times it focuses on the individualspeaking. It doesn't
seem to be consistent." Christine Brown, resident, during public session.

"I'd like to invite everyone to attend the 97th annual Gulfport Birthday
Bash on October 13. Our theme this year is 'Moonlight, Mullet and Music.'
It's co-sponsored by the Gulfport Historical Society and the City. We'd
like to have the mayor there sometime around 4:30 to 5:00 p.m. to cut the
birthday cake and invite all residents to join us from 6 to 9p.m. for mu-
sic." -Judy Ryerson, director, Gulfport Historical Society during public session.

"The city has never conceded that the building could be used as a
non-conforming structure." -Tim Driscoll, city attorney, discussing the
appeal of a ruling in the on-going case of the city v. Pasadena Properties.

Gulfport Wise?
Have you got a question about Gulfport? '
Email your request to News@theGabber.com
By Cathy Salustri
qe a I've lived in Gulfport for 15 years. Like the Holy Name Fest each
October, we always could count on the Car Show each November,
regu ar as clockwork. This event was one of my favorites and I miss it.
What happened to this event? Was it canceled and by whom? How can we
get it to come back?

A o Gulfport hosts two classic auto shows in Clymer Park: the city-
sponsored event on November 4 and 5 and the Boca Ciega High
School Band Alumni event scheduled for January 5 of next year.
However, Gulfport no longer hosts the Florida Westcoast Region/Antique
Auto Club of America. The people who live by Clymer Park had, as
Gulfport Leisure Services Director Jim O'Reilly delicately stated it, "con-
cerns" about some aspects of the event. To help address those concerns,
Gulfport asked the auto club to forego the flea market aspect of their event.
The club had concerns that by streamlining the vendors they would
lose money; in response to these concerns the City offered to completely
sponsor and provide whatever organizational assistance the club needed.
These city-suggested changes and solutions didn't satisfy the
Florida Westcoast Region/Antique Auto Club of America, and accord-
ing to the city, the club said they didn't want to use Clymer Park for
their event if they were not able to have any type vendor they chose.
So, to answer the second question, to get the car show back the city
would have to agree to let the club have the "flea market" style ven-
dors, and it doesn't sound like that's going to happen. However, a
quick check on the internet revealed that the club will have a show
in Pinellas Park this year- you can see the car show at the England
Brothers bandshell at Plaza Park (49th Street North and 81st Avenue
North) on November 2 and 3. According to the web site (http://local.
aaca.org/fwcr/index.htm), the club will have a flea market both days.

Sunshine, from front page

to other council member on a docu-
ment contained within a spiral ring
notebook.
"I have never been accused of break-
ing the law before and I resent it bit-
terly," said Phillips. "I want the record
to show that it was physically impos-
sible for a note exchange as charged to
have happened."
King passed down a pink colored
sheet, taken from the packet of back-
ground material given to council mem-
bers with scribbled notes on top of it.
Spano had difficulty reading King's
writing, but noted that she witnessed
King writing the comments in her of-
fice earlier in the day. The notes dealt
with wording of the proposed commit-
tee structure. King said that the page
was situated in front of her and was
not passed to the vice mayor.
Later during public comment, an-
other city resident, Christine Brown,
also said she thought she had seen a
note exchange between the two elected
representatives. Brown also chastised
Phillips for insulting Newcomb.
"Perception is everything. Mr.
Newcomb perceived that there was a
sunshine violation taking place. My
perception was the same. You insult-
ed Mr. Newcomb at least four times
during your comments," said Brown.
When you react like that you squash
public input and oversight. I think
you owe Mr. Newcomb an apology."
puNewcomb also spoke again during
public comment.
"I have a thick skin so I don't need
an apology," he said. "Since this coun-
cil has no rules of their own, we in the
public need to be vigilant of your ac-
tions."

Gulfport Gets
Sidewalk Cafes
Gulfport council voted yes on second
reading to an ordinance which will al-
low for outdoor sidewalk cafe dining
within approved public right-of-ways
within the city. They also passed a
companion resolution setting the per-
mitting fees. Both go into effect im-
mediately.
Applicants for a sidewalk cafe per-
mit will be required to produce a site
plan that shows the location of the
proposed cafe along with a seating
plan showing tables, chairs and any
other equipment associated with the
use. Establishments with Sidewalk
cafes will be required to provide a
minimum unobstructed pedestrian
path of 4 feet and liability insurance
in the amount of $500,000. Hours of
operation would be the same as the
adjacent restaurant, although if a
cafe is located adjacent to a residen-
tial area it may not be open later than
11:00 p.m.
The companion resolution to the
new ordinance set the application fee
at $125 for processing, review and
inspections. An annual permit fee of
$50 was passed for each year there-
after. Assuming an applicant is ap-
proved the application fee would be
credited toward the first year's per-
mit fee.
The new ordinance does allow for
the sale and consumption of alcoholic
beverages in association with the
consumption of a meal. According
to Fred Metcalf, community develop-
ment director, only restaurants will
be permitted, not bars or convenience
stores. The perimeter will need to be
delineated and posted with signage
that no alcoholic beverages will be al-
lowed outside the permitted area.

It's That Time Again
The Gulfport Senior Center will of-
fer flu shots on Wednesday October
17 from 2 5 p.m. and at the Senior
Center's Health Fair at the Gulfport
Casino on November 14.

Gabber October 4 October 11. 2007


S3S Psburg FloridaLoca


















As was so often the case, these

days, Rebecca Collins began
her day feeling guilty. Another
Saturday, another guilt trip. And
the source of her guilt, as always,
was her sister Sam. Always Sam.
But at least today, there was
something good to think about, too.
She had met a man. And they were
going on a date. Tomorrow. Her first
date in months so many months,
she wasn't sure how long it had
been. But it looked like the long dry
spell was over.
It had all started early in the week.
Sandra, the other woman lawyer at
work there were only two of them
in the firm was having a birthday
on Wednesday. She was single, like
Rebecca, and a homeowner, like
.Rebecca, and the closest thing to a
friend that Rebecca had at work.
And Sandra had decided to take
the day off and indulge herself a
bit, something that Rebecca could
certainly understand.
She had also decided to have a
small dinner party at her home in
northeast St. Petersburg. Just a few
friends, she had said a light dinner
and some good wine. She had smiled
when she added the last.
Rebecca had said "yes," of course.
She rarely turned down social
invitations, not with her social life
in the doldrums the way it had been
lately. And besides, the evening
sounded pleasant enough.
And it was. The food was good:
roasted chicken, salad and a sinfully
delicious carrot cake. The wine lived
up to Sandra's promise. And the
company was good, too six bright
people, engaging in far-ranging,
spirited conversation, with lots
of laughter. Just what the doctor
ordered.
Rebecca liked one dinner companion
in particular, James, Sandra's
cousin. She even liked his solid
sounding name James Weldon.
Better yet, he seemed to like her as
well.


.. ,!. .-,
.

1Ty hger Twner



James was tall and slender, nice
looking and well dressed. He even
wore a jacket for the dinner party,
a rare sight in this part of Florida.
He held his own in the dinner
conversation, neither aggressive nor
reticent. In other words, he was a
gentleman. And if he didn't laugh as
much as some of the others, he did
smile a lot especially at Rebecca. It
.made her glad she was there.
At the end of the evening, he
walked Rebecca to her car. She had
had to park half a block down the
street, and he wanted to make sure
she was "safe." Then after inserting
her into her car and closing her door,
he asked for her phone number.
Sh6 readily agreed, gave it to him
verbally, and drove off wondering
if she would ever hear from him
again.
She did, the very next night.
He called just to say "hello," he
said, and promised not to take up
more than five minutes of her time.
The five minutes turned into half an
hour, but Rebecca didn't mind. It was
a thoroughly pleasant conversation
and, somewhere near the end, he
asked to take her out this weekend.
When was her choice, where would
be his. Which meant that Rebecca
had to do some quick calculating.
There were three choices, of course:
Friday night, Saturday night, or
Sunday. And the only real plans
she had for the weekend were the
usual having Sam over for lunch
on Sunday. That was the normal
routine.
Friday night was never Rebecca's
favorite night for anything. She was
usually exhausted from the work
week. She might go out with someone
from work for an after-work drink or
a bite to eat, but that was about it.
She hoped that this date would be
decidedly more than that, and she
wanted to be at her best, so, for her,
Friday night was out;
Saturday night was the logical
choice. But did she really want him


to know that, on Thursday night,
2 she had no plans yet for Saturday?
She wasn't crazy about the idea.
She also had another fear, a
stronger one. What if the date went
well? What if they both enjoyed it
and wanted to do it again? What if
he said, "I'd like to see you again
tomorrow?"
What would she do? Turn him
down? Lie to him and make up
something she had to do? Or tell him
the truth, that she was entertaining
her sister for lunch? What if he said,
"Wonderful? I'd love to meet your
sister. Why don't we all have lunch
together?" Or something like that.
What would she do then?
So she quickly decided to take the
easy way out. She had said, "Sunday
would be best for me."
And he had said, "Wonderful.
Maybe we'll catch an afternoon
movie and then have an early dinner
downtown somewhere."
And she had said, "That sounds
delightful," and meant it. It did
sound just exactly right for a first
date.
And then she immediately started
to feel guilty.
Because the truth was, she didn't
want James to meet Sam certainly
not yet. It was too soon. Much too
soon. She had no idea what he would
think of her, how he would react.
Because, in simple fact, Sam wasn't
normal. She didn't look normal.
She didn't act normal. And her
intelligence level certainly wasn't
normal. And she didn't know if, in
his eyes, that would reflect on her.
After all, Sam was her sister, the
closest blood relative she had.
So she had called Sam as soon as
the call from James was finished
and rearranged their Sunday lunch
for this afternoon. And vowed to
herself to be especially nice to Sam
today. Because she felt bad about
rearranging Sam's schedule, always
upsetting for her. And she felt bad
about putting herself first. And,
most of all, she felt bad about being
ashamed of her sister.
What kind of sister was she? What
kind of person was she?

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 in intended.
Next week: Chapter 6 continues as
Sam comes to lunch.

Faster than Lightning, King of the Sea
By Cathy Salustri


Photos by Tom Gibson

W HT The Dolphin Re-
WV O search Center (DRC),
home to relatives of the first Flipper.

T -IA HTA If not for the gar-
W J TJL gantuan dolphin
sculpture in the parking lot, you may
never notice the -Dolphin Research
Center. I first read about it in the
Longstreet Highroad Guide to the
Florida Keys and Everglades, which
says Flipper "originated" here. While
technically that's correct, that only
hints at the story. The very idea for
the movie and subsequent TV show
came from Milton Santini (a former
fisherman) and Mitzi the dolphin.
Santini "caught" Mitzi while he lived
at what would become DRC.

M IT and Santini's spe-
L I J .cial relationship,
DRC staff explains, became the ba-
sis for the movie Flipper. She, along
with other dolphins comprised Santi-
ni's Porpoise School and appeared in
the movie; their children, and grand-
children still live, work, and play at
DRC.

TWHENThe Dolphin Re-
VWV11 INsearch Center
opens to the public daily at 9 a.m.
and closes at 4:30 p.m., excluding
certain holidays.

-tiT R E 0 Mile Marker
WH ER 59 (gulf side)

HT \Vho wouldn't want to
V JI. JL see a dolphin up close?
Granted, watching them hunt in
the Gulf makes me nervous (they're
not really smiling, folks, that's the
natural shape of their mouths), but
dolphins rarely attack people, and
watching them in the lagoons around
DRC seemed kinder than watching
them in a theme park with people
riding them like waterskis.


BEST
Part: The "-.hows". a
thinly-veiled chance Z
tor the researchers |
to work with the dol-
phins Shows take place
whether or not the dol-
phins have an audience:
DRC allows guests in.
but they exist first and
foremo-t as a research
facility The shows don't
have a script. and they
seem more dolphin per-
tormance art than a circus
act.


WO -R ST Part: Watch-
SWO RSTing people
give the dolphin's behaviors human
attributes. The trainers ask the dol-
phins to do a few things that seem a
little schmaltzy- "waving" and giv-
ing humans "kisses"- but for the most
part the dolphin shows consist of
these sleek creatures playing, either
with trainers or each other.

with a dolphin? You
S.bet. We watched
people swim with dolphins (at Dol-
phinEncounter) and "play" with
them (DolphinSplash). After watch-
ing both sessions and talking to par-
ticipants, The Gabber recommends
the less-pricey DolphinSplash. You
get more time with the dolphins, al-
though you don't actually swim with
them.


Dogs
BONUSallowed. They
can't swim with the dolphins (we
asked) but they are allowed every-
where else on the property. Of The
Gabber's two "test dachshunds", one
spent over an hour staring, enchant-
ed, at the dolphins (who swam up to
him more than once, to his delight)
and the other didn't seem to notice
them. DRC staff said both reactions
were typical. Apparently dogs can't
smell dolphins, so they see some-
thing they can't smell. No big deal,
you say? What if you could hear
someone speaking to you but couldn't
see them? It's the same idea.

M/rAGI rQuestion:
MAGIC $20 to get in
the door (less for seniors and kids).
Dolphin interactions start at $25 and
can cost as much as $650. Call 305-
289-1121 or visit Dolphins.org for
more information.

Jet Skiing for

World Records

John Moffat visited Gulfport Mu-
nicipal Marina nearing the end
of his incredible journey through
America's waterways. The 43-year
old adventurist wants to retake
his claim as record holder for the
personal watercraft (PWC) world
distance record (currently 13,000
miles).
Moffat arrived in Gulfport from
the panhandle of Florida nearing
the end of his journey, which in-
cluded a sojourn up the intercoast-
al waterways from Miami along the
east coast, through New York City,
and then to Montreal. From there,
he traveled past Ottawa through
Lake Ontario and east to Chicago,
down the Illinois River, up the Mis-


sissippi, further up the Missouri
River, up and back along the Ohio
River, down the Tennessee River to
the Gulf of Mexico along Florida's
panhandle, and then to Gulfport.
Moffat hopes to arrive home in
Miami October 15. For more infor-
mation on John Moffatt's journey

Quality People at Quality Self Storage
By Morgan Landis

After recently moving in with my boyfriend, I found
out a lot of new things about him. First he 'forgets' to 4
put away his dishes. Second, he plays the television
unbelievably loud so that I can't concentrate when I'm
doing my work. Third, he is one of the biggest pack
rats I have ever met. We have so much stuff (mostly
his which could be lessened if he just threw away the
things he didn't need) that it doesn't fit in our place. It's
not like we have a small apartment- we have a house.
So the only thing we can do, without killing ourselves ,>r .
tripping over boxes, is to find a storage place.
Quality Self Storage has 11 sites around the state. -
The one I looked at is in South Pasadena, hidden right
behind Body Dynamics and next to Sweetbay. It used
to be an old K-mart, so this place is huge! There are
