This Joint is Jumpin'
By Shelly Wilson
"It's the cat's meow," said Michael Fort6, of Long Island, decked
out in a "zoot" suit for the Swing Time event on Friday, November
16th at the Gulfport Casino. "There's nothing like this in New
York, that I know of. You can dance with girls from 12 to 90
something here. I think it's great."
In its seventh year, Sam Mahfoud's creation, Swing Time, has
become a local favorite, not only in Gulfport, where it is a staple
on Wednesday nights at the Casino, but also on Thursdays at
Centro Asturiano in Ybor City.
The November 16th event was a special USO-themed tribute
in honor of Veteran's Day, and World War II-era civilian and
military dress was encouraged.
From 9 p.m. to 1 a.m., guests were Shim-Shamming and Lindy-
Hopping to the music of The Ten O'Clock Band, an 18 piece "big
band," which was decked out in Army Air Corps khakis.
"This band is old fashioned," said Swing Time worker Pat
Fuselier over the refrains of Benny Goodman's swing-staple "Sing
Sing Sing." "Older people really love this band because they play
all the popular songs from the 40s."
Fuselier may be right, but a quick look around at the over 260
dancers in the Casino would have told you one thing: There's no
age requirement for swing.

Jennifer Kon and Lee Mudd, pictured right, WWII reenactors in US Army
uniform, say they have been coming to the Swing Time events once a month
"for a while now." Just what does a WWII reenactor do? "It's similar to Civil
War reenacting," said Mudd, who, along with Kon, recently participated in
a reenactment on a train at the Railroad. Museum in Parish, Florida. "Some
dress up as British military, some do German."


The Ten O'Clock Band, considered Florida's leading 18-piece big band, entertained guests at Friday night's Swing Time Veteran's Day tribute
with swing tunes and big band classics. Tony Fuoco, standing with saxophone, showed his versatility by switching to the clarinet for Benny
Goodman's "Sing Sing Sing."

You & THE


LAWI

Your Last Will and
Testament
Many otherwise successful and dili-
gent people overlook what could be
one of the largest tax-saving devices
available to them during their entire
lifetimes: a will. Wills are the pri-
mary document in which you specify
how, to whom and when you wish to
have all of your earthly belongings
distributed. Although this is a vital
document, many people procrastinate
or defer having one drafted. Conse-
quently, many people die without the
benefit of their specific instructions
being carried out.
If you die without a will, you die
"intestate" or without a testament.
If this occurs, your estate will be
distributed according to the probate
laws of the State of Florida if you re-
side in Florida. More than likely, this
distribution will not be according to
your wishes.. This could also cause
problems in your immediate family
due to disputes over who was meant
to receive what, what proceeds to go
to your spouse as well as any chari-
table bequests.


In drafting a will, several factors
must be taken into consideration.
These include, but are not limited to:
*Specific instructions designed to
distribute your estate to your intend-
ed beneficiaries.
*Provisions for a guardian(s) to
serve in your capacity if you have mi-
nor children.
*A nomination for a personal rep-
resentative or executor to carry out
your wished in conjunction with the
court.
*Instructions regarding the subse-
quent transfer of wealth on a tax-free
or deferred basis through the Unlim-
ited Martial Deduction or United
Credit as well as other tax savings
strategies.
A competent attorney should be
employed for the drafting of a will.
While there exist many do-it-yourself
products on the market which do pro-
vide presumably valid documents,
there is no substitute for professional
advice and sound legal counsel.
Once your will is finalized, it may
be changed as you deem necessary to
reflect your ever changing situation.
Such changes may be based upon
a birth or death in the family, a di-
vorce, change of residence or change
of intended beneficiaries. Such
changes or codicils must be executed
with the same formalities as a will,
but are usually not as involved as the
drafting of the original document.


Even without a major life- changes,
wills should be reviewed every two
to three years to ensure that your in-
tentions will, in fact, be carried out
upon your death.

Jenny, from front page
"Jenny was one of the first custom-
ers I met when Deb and I bought the
paper," Ken Reichart, editor of The
Gabber Newspaper, said Monday
morning when he heard- the news.
Others also recalled Ms. Berry's
warm manner.
"She was like family to us,' West
Dupes said. "We often teased her and
laughed together. She was a very,
very wonderful woman." Dupes owns
Gulfport Travel, a business also lo-
cated in Town Shores Plaza. His
business neighbored Ms. Berry's bro-
kerage for 23 years.
"I know she was a Realtor, and sell-
ing property was part of her job, but
as the new folks in town, she made us
truly feel welcome into the Gulfport
community. I believe she was truly
glad we were here," Reichart added.
"I never forgot that feeling of wel-
come and community. Gulfport was
lucky to have her. I'm really going to
miss her."
Bay Pines will host the service for
Jenny Berry at 1 p.m. on Friday, No-
vember 30.

This N' That in South
Pasadena
By Sibylle Stajich
The Stroll
Friday, November 9 was the
scheduled Stroll. The day was sun-
ny but cold and everyone was wear-
ing sweaters. The first stop was at
the Public Works building on Hi-
biscus Avenue where a red ribbon
was strung over the entrance door
and where the new Improvement
Department had been moved. Lit-
tle by little all strollers arrived and
Mayor Holmes, the commissioners
and former Mayor Held stood be-
hind the ribbon. After saying a few
remarks stating that this is now
the new City Hall Annex, Mayor
Holmes cut the ribbon. Those who
wanted to were able to go upstairs
and see the new Improvement De-
partment and then all strolled to
Duryea Park where refreshments
were offered as well as souvenirs.
Many guests from the nursing
homes were present and enjoyed
this unique outing.
At The Fountains
01i Wednesday, November 28 at
2 p.m. Dr. David Eichenbaum will
share information about macular
degeneration. Enjoy a light re-
freshment as you meet the staff
and mingle with guests at this in-
formative event. RSVP by Novem-
ber 28 at 381-5411. The Fountains
are at 1255 Pasadena Avenue So.
Civic Association
The meeting on November 14
introduced Chet Ugan, a Reverse
Mortgage Specialist with Wells
Fargo. He started by saying that
the Insured Reserve Mortgage
converts your home equity into
cash while you can continue living
in the comfort and security of your
own home. This program is a spe-
cial type of mortgage that enables
you, as a senior 62 years or older,
to convert a portion of your existing
home equity into cash. With a tra-
ditional loan or home equity loan
you must have a good credit rating


Gabber November 22 November 28, 2007














and sufficient income to qualify for
the loan. You are required to make
monthly mortgage payments and
should you fail to do so, may lose
your home. The reverse mortgage
pays you and no repayment is re-
quired as long as your home re-
mains your primary residence. Mr.
Ugan answered many questions
concerning property taxes and in-
surance and welcomes questions at
302-3964.
Mayor Holmes explained that this
year the Christinas tree will not be
in the Galatea Garden but near
the flag pole. December will be the
tree lighting and open house. Pres.
Held told that on January 29 will
be a concert by the Mills Bros. and
February 7 Neil Diamond. Also a
Casino Cruz is planned for those
who would be interested. After
50/50 chances were won, coffee and
cookies donated by Palms of Pasa-
dena Hospital were served.


Pasadena Church
Presents "The Journey"
Pasadena Community Church in
conjunction with Salerno Theater
is presenting "The Journey" on
December 13, 14 and 15. "The
Journey" is a musical theater experi-
ence that tells the story of the birth
of Jesus Christ through the eyes of
a modern-day child and his skepti-
cal mother. This original show was
written by Saddleback's Director of
Creative Arts, Tony Guerrero, and
Saddleback's Production Director,
Shawn King. Guests will also enjoy a'
"Live Nativity" at each performance.
Tickets are on sale now at Pasadena
Community Church or on-line at

of the white paper.

by area business and resorts and
Suntan artists will be held through-
out the day. Bidding will end at 4:30
pm. Winners of the silent auction

in each building they live in, and each team has an assigned day each week
to play against each other. This season will go straight through March. Could
there be a new winning team this season? Time and diligence will tell.

Ruthie Carries a Big Stick as Bocce Referee


Throwing balls toward a target is the oldest game known to mankind. As early
as 5000 B.C. the Egyptians played a form of bocce with polished rocks. Graphic
representations of figures tossing a ball or polished stone have been recorded
as early as 5200 B.C. While bocce today looks quite different from its early pre-
decessors, the unbroken thread of bocce's lineage is the consistently common
objective of trying to come as close to a fixed target as possible.
Residents of Town Shores in Gulfport continue the age old tradition of bocce.
Every competitive game could use a referee with a smile. "Ruthie" a long-time
resident of Town Shores, begins opening day of Bocce..

Boats, Volcanoes,

and Other Cool Stuff
By Cathy Salustri.
. Last week the United States Geologic Survey
(USGS) held an open house at their research
facility at 6th Avenue South between 3rd and
4th Street in downtown St. Petersburg. The
USGS has an integrated science center in St.
Petersburg; people who attended the open
house had the opportunity to get an up-close
look at some of the research programs the
USGS pursues in St. Petersburg.
Programs include ground and surface water
research, mapping the ocean shelf, studying
coral diseases, and studying Tampa Bay es-
tuaries. Here scientist Gary Mill explains to
Rachel Boone about one of the boats the USGS
uses in their research.


W ith the end of Hurricane season ap-
e 1 1 preaching, cooler weather and cooler
water temperatures have signaled the
arrival of our King Mackerel. As a young man,
my father had a simple way to remember our
m mackerel seasons: "We always have mackerel for
Thanksgiving and Easter". The "King" mack-
erel or Kingfish, having spent the summer feed-
- ing in the upper Gulf, are starting their south-
ern migration for warmer waters. These larger
U fish have made the Tampa Bay area famous for
"Smoker Kings". Known for their lightning-fast
* burst of speed, this term often refers to your fish-
ing reel once one is hooked.
*B My favorite method, and perhaps one of the
most popular ways of catching these fish, is live
U bait fishing. Use a 15-20 lb. class medium heavy
rod and reel with a small piece (12-16 inches) of


28 lb. single strand wire and a 2/0 long shank
gold Aberdeen hook. Spanish Sardines, Thread-
fin Herring, Cigar minnows and Blue Runners
are the most common choices for bait. I prefer
anchoring the boat and chumming, but slow troll-
ing (1-2 knots) is a very deadly method. Others
prefer to use artificial baits. Trolling 4-6 knots
with silver "King Spoons" is very productive.
As the water temperature continues to drop,
also look for the Grouper to move from the deep-
er offshore reefs closer to shore.
Inshore, the small groups of Red Drum (Redfish)
are schooling, patrolling oyster bars, potholes and
mangrove points while Snook move from the back
side of the passes and head back up the bay and
rivers to their winter homes.

Sex Offender Still At Large
Gulfport Detective Matt Parks continues to attempt to locate a sexual offender
recently released from prison. The man has not registered with the local police as
required by law. The Gulfport Police say that the State Attorney's Office should
initiate an arrest warrant for the man for failure to register (a felony charge).

School Resource Officer Report
School Resource Officer Steven Beltran has investigated cases and attended a
threat assessment meeting regarding a student at the high school over the past
week. He also made two arrests for students possessing marijuana.
Two officers conducted a problem-oriented patrol near Boca Ciega High School
last Tuesday in response to complaints about students smoking pot in the cem-
etery and on the Pinellas Trail. Detectives found three students smoking a
"blunt," a hollowed out cigar filled with marijuana. No evidence indicates the
students got the drugs while on campus.

Jeremy said. "What makes you such

Pendergast laughed. "Perverted in-
terest," he said. "Love of juicy details.

tions."
"I'm sure," Jeremy said. "Is that why
you're here so much? Digging up juicy

"I'm here so much," Pendergast said,
"because I don't work and I'm finan-
cially comfortable and I can be any-

loose and fancy free, you might say."
Jeremy shut up, thinking that he had
probably gone too far, that Pendergast
was beginning to sound irritated. Jer-
emy didn't like him, but didn't want to
drive him away as a customer, either.
Too late, maybe. After a few more ba-
nalities, Pendergast wandered up the
street without so much as sticking his
head into Jeremy's shop.
Jeremy looked after him, wondering
who the hell he was. He seemed to be
around a lot, especially for someone
who supposedly lived somewhere else.
He always paid with cash, so there
was no way to verify where he actu-
ally lived.
And while everyone else seemed to be
deeply disturbed about recent events,
he was making a joke of it.
Jr-emy was beginning to be suspi-
cious of Pendergast and asked himself
if he should pass his suspicions on to
the police. Then he realized that that
would be a bad idea. The police were
already suspicious of him, he thought,
and it would look like he was trying to
send them off in another direction.

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 intend-
ed. Next week: Chapter 8 continues as
the police come calling.

As we enter the first major holiday of

Gulfport Fire Department would like
to point out to all those tending to the
kitchen to keep a close eye out for the
family's safety, too.
As if you didn't already have enough
to worry about on Thanksgiving Day
with all the food preparation, table
settings and family mulling around


your kitchen. Thanksgiving Day sees
more cooking related fires than any
other day the rest of the year. Nearly
double the percentage than a nor-
mal day; food left unattended is the
leading factor in residential fires on
Thanksgiving Day.
Watch what you heat. The leading
cause of fire in the kitchen is unat-
tended cooking. Stay in the kitchen
when you are frying, grilling or broil-
ing food. If you leave the kitchen for
even a short period of time, have

someone stay and watch the food, or
turn off the stove. If you are simmer-
ing, baking, roasting or broiling food,
check it regularly, remain in the home
while food is cooking and use a timer
to remind you that you're cooking.
Keep anything that can catch fire
(potholders, oven mitts, wooden uten-
sils, paper or plastic bags, food pack-
aging, towels or curtains), away from
your stovetop. Keep the stovetop, and
burners clean to prevent grease build-
up. Keep pot handles turned inward
to prevent them from being knocked
over. And wear short, close-fitting or
tightly rolled sleeves when cooking.
Loose clothing can dangle onto stove
burners and catch fire.
Always keep a working smoke
detector(s) in various rooms of your
home.
For those who are going to be deep-
frying their turkey this year, think
safety, too. Do not set up the fryer un-
derneath the carport, porch, any over-
hang or inside the garage. Deep fryer
fires can start up quickly, and spread
very fast. Thoroughly thaw the bird,
and dry it before attempting to lower
it into hot oil. Any moisture can pro-
duce hot-oil splatter, which increases
the chance for injury and a fire. Re-
member to keep the fryer in full view
while the burner is on. Place the tank
upwind of the burner, and make sure
there is at least two feet of space be-
tween the LPG tank and the burner.
Always raise and lower food slowly,
and cover bare skin while doing so.
For more information, please call our
office at 893-1064. Have a safe and
happy Thanksgiving from the Fire-
fighters at Gulfport Fire Department.

More About
Santa's Show
We continue describing the won-
derful holiday exhibit by members
of the Art Guild of Treasure Island.
These paintings will hang in the
Community Center until January
3, so they may well tempt you for
Christmas gifts. Come along as we
introduce you to the works of Claire
Paultre and Rita Gould.
Claire Paultre, a native of Port au
Price, Haiti, has chosen four color-
ful water scenes in acrylics, three
featuring our beloved pelicans:
"At Dawn", "End Of the Day" and
"Pelicans At Rest". Memorable is
Claire's "Old John's Pass Bridge"
with draw-bridge raised for a
graceful sailboat. With the march
of time,. this historic structure
has been replaced by a sleek new
span.
Rita Gould offers us two lovely
watercolors: "Spring Thaw" and
"Nostalgia". Reflecting her early
interest in Italian architecture,
Rita gives us "The Wash, Italy"
with wind-whipped laundry hang-
ing from the coral building's walls.
Another dramatic Italian scene,
"Staircase, Italy", pulls the viewer
in to climb right up to the arch-
topped door.
Come visit our show to enjoy
these works and those of George
Avery, Raymond Curtin and Mire-
lla Cimato. Call the Recreation
Department at 547-4575 for more
information.

Defending Worthington
* Dear Editor: Re: Article on Ted
Philips leaving council in the Novem-
ber 15, 2007 issue.
.I'm writing this letter in response
to Mr. Philips' comments regarding
dishonesty among the Gulfport City
Council. Mr. Philips, I have been a
citizen of Gulfport on and off since
1974. In my time living in Gulfport
I have pretty well known Mr. Bob
Worthington the entire time. I can-
not point out any individual in my ca-
reer as a firefighter that I could trust
anymore than Mr. Worthington and
so I have a problem with your com-
ments and statements made to the
Gabber.
The night of that meeting I hap-
pened to be watching it on my TV.
I saw everything that took place re-
garding the citizen in the audience
who made a statement regarding the
passing of the note. You didn't point
out that-the original complaint was
made by an individual who is not re-
lated to Mr. Worthington. Why not?
Mr. Philips, you have served
Gulfport very well and I can assure
you that being here as long as I have,
I have seen you work. The citizens of
Gulfport are very fortunate to have
an individual devote the time that
you have to the City of Gulfport.
The political field is not an easy
place to work and everyone is not go-
ing to always agree. You made the
comment, Mr. Philips, that you and
Ms. King disagree about 90% of the
time. You obviously don't agree with
Mr. Worthington. Who do you agree
with among the council individuals?
The citizens of Gulfport don't deserve
that, so maybe it is time for you to
remove yourself from the local gov-
ernment.
By the way, I am a certified poly-
graph operator and I can assure you
they work for I have tested over 600


individuals. Mr. Philips, when you go
take that test, why don't you ask Ms.
King if she would go with you and
take one?

Plea for a Kitten-
Dear Editor: There is a male kit-
ten, about six months old, who needs
a home. This is no ordinary kitten. He
was found about two months ago with
an eye condition that necessitated the'
removal of his left eye. His blood work
revealed that he is positive for a form
of the feline leukemia virus. This con-
dition makes it very difficult for him
to find a loving home.
He's very personable and very lov-
ing, not to mention cuter than all
getout. He's currently being cared for
by a local veterinarian but it is not
possible for the vet to keep him forev-
er. The problem is that the leukemia
virus is contagious among other cats;
not dogs, humans or other animals,
just cats. This requires that he be in
a single cat environment and, most
importantly, that he be kept indoors.
The virus is most often transmitted by
bite but may also be spread through
food and water bowls so it is very im-
portant that no other cats be exposed.
This little guy would be a wonderful
companion for a person or couple who
want only one cat. The virus may lie
dormant throughout the animal's life
or may cause medical problems at
some stage of life.
If you are looking for a special com-
panion this little guy could be what
you're looking for. Other than the
environmental restrictions he needs
only a home and love, which he re-
turns generously. If you are interested
in giving this little guy a home please
call me during the day at 321-1212.

Exhibit Explores
The End of Queer
By Frank Hibrandt
The gay community has made great
strides in becoming more mainstream
and accepted by society. Historically,
groups that have been shunned by
the community create their own sub-
culture that parodies and reshapes
reality into a comfortable safe zone.
As general acceptance increases, the
need and relevance of these alterna-
tive social structures decreases.
This exhibition takes a look at some
of the elements of gay culture that are
slowly disappearing. Gulfport writ-
ers Ria Alyxander and Tinamarie
Hansen explore the issues through
the written word. Frank Hibrandt
brings back past memories through
the metaphor of ruins in his instal-
lations. Los Angeles writer and art-
ist Steven Reigns joins forces with
St. Petersburg artist Thaddeus Root
to bring us a cautionary tale told in
photographs.
Panel discussion will be at the
Gulfport Library, 5501 28 Avenue S.
in Gulfport on Wednesday, November
28 from 6-8 p.m.

Holmes, from front page

and about five-thousand light years
away."

RosenMart: Aft and Home Decor on Central


By Cathy Salustri
L ast year I wrote about a p- ri.t
new h.h'pqini \\.h site, Rosen-
Mart.com. If you've followed
the course of this local -h-i.ppimn site
and its proprietors Hans and Rita
Rosendahl, perh.ap- you already
know that in addition to their web
site and presence at Guflport Art
W \\alks. the Rosendahis have opi-n.-d
a shop along (C-ntral Avi t iw
If you haven't yet visited Hans and
.Rita at any of th-e:.- three venues
(web, Art Walks, or the new shop),
I can give you the skinny on what
RosenMart has to offer. RosenMart
matches customers with products
(ih '. want at in ir,- far more rtasNi-
bll; than dep;ir iment -t,r,.; or spe-
.-inAlt I p-. Their products appeal
to the aesthetic in ailof us: they sell-
a wonderful: selectiof t hit-; I ulily :
made items that 'you want in your
home, either for the way ih'.y com-
bine beauty with function or for their.
beauty alone.
\\o Ilkng into the shop on Central
reminds me a bit of stepping off a
cruise ship in the islands. The shop
: '- -explbdes with color and d.1 i7.1,` 'with
thingg .try-in to catch your ,.\ '
What do you look at first- handmade
minitaure beach houses or a hand
blown set of blue and ,i.lutv i.,'--.-
ware for your kitchen?
Because the Rosendahls have spent
the past year refining their web
business they've =h t. l,,.d a u.i:t
sense for what people want to buy
when they visit the shop. You can
always walk in and buy their ever-
popular solar dragonfly, humming-
bird, and butterfly lights that light
up \i.ur yard or patio. These lights
also change colors, adding depth and
interest to garden lighting schemes.
If you've visited RosenMart's booth
at ( L-ckt -',-t or the (;ulpiIrt. Art
\\W-tlk chances are you've at least
seen (if not purchased) some of these
lights. Roi.-ciNart. also sells tradi-
tional solar garden lights, all very
ia-,inanbl priced.
They also carry the bestselling
swing chairs I prnai..d so minuhtili
when I wrote about them last year.
Th,-y keep them in stock so you can
stroll into the shop and have one on


Hans Rosendahl poses with a bright blue fish. He's relaxing in one of his best
selling items- a padded hammock chair. The shop on'Central offers many of the
Rosendahl's most popular items at more than reasonable prices.


yourfront porch tonight.
Adding to- the t'-aril,. ,i market-
placce I. i is P..-. ni, I art's vast array
of Mexican pottery and other bright-
ly colored home items that combine
art with usefulness. I hi.-' also have
a lot of art for the sake of art, such as
talavera frogs, the brightly painted
f'',,L- you see i',,., the walls I.1
many homes.
S i,,.. of the items Hans and Rita of-
fer in the shop are unique to Rosen-
\I: such as yellow-dimpled pitch-
ers with blue rims. Items like these
reinforce "I.-. l.' r. as a i .iii' ,
of art and comfort rather than a dis-
count shop.
Don't misunderstand- Hans and
Rita sell all their items at reasonable
prices. Often times low prices don't
equal great value, but that's not the
case with i-, ', l.i i. Th' items they
carry are well made and crafted with
care and talent.
Th,.-. still have the web site (....
can visit them online at www.Rosen-
Mart.com) with a full i .n', of art
and home decor, but if the idea of


buying off the web makes you ner-
vous, you can always take a drive '.r
I'lt. ride down to the shop and see
the ,.1lits of the items. Hans also
takes a very I,, .., i1 interest in the
business, answering all the web and
phone inquiries in I', i -"n
And while internet shopping makes
life easier for a lot of ., ,li if vnn.
like me, don't want to wait .., ,'I
