40th Anniversary of a Dream
By Cathy Salustri "My dad f
In 1967 Vergil Newberne moved his young love with
family to Florida and risked everything he business,"
had to pursue a dream. This Saturday night N e w b e r
his family will celebrate his dream, which still daughter,
stands on the corner of Pasadena and Gulfport di Shain.
Boulevard: GiGi's Italian Restaurant. remember,
The American Dream, or the idea that any- story well
one can prosper if they work hard, takes on father w
different meanings for different people, but to quit
no one can deny that running a successful school to
restaurant for almost half a century qualifies the rest
as a dream realized. and while
Longtime GiGi's customers know the story: Newberne
Newberne was working as a appliance repair- ported her
man in Georgia when he was called to.replace law school
a broken fan belt in a restaurant oven hood. GiGi's. H
Newberne refused payment, but accepted a Florida an
pizza pie from the owner. From that moment celebrated
forward, he wanted to run a restaurant that
served pizza and Italian food.


Future of Scout Hall
Still Uncertain
By Greg Stemm
When Gulfport City Council voted
2-2 on November 6 not to pursue
'renovation for Scout Hall, they left
a number of unanswered questions
W lich will have to play out over the
next several months, according to
City Manager Tom Brobeil. One
council member, Mary Stull, from
the city's Tangerine Park district
(Ward 4) was absent due to a hospi-
talized illness.
The project has been a contro-
versial issue with residents and
council for almost ten years. The
building, which most acknowledge
is not architecturally significant
ri except as an example of typical ear-
ly 20th century wood construction,
in holds sentimental value for many
e in Gulfport. Among its many uses
i over nearly 100 years, the Hall has

Scout Hall, from front page

a community center and a meeting
place for both Boy and Girl Scout-
troops.
On March 31, 2006 the city of
Gulfport was awarded a $198,000
federal grant to restore and renovate
Scout Hall. The funding was cham-
pioned by the Gulfport area's federal
representative Bill Young (R).
On July 18, 2006 the city approved
an agreement with Renker-Eich Parks
Architects for architectural and con-
struction management services. On
August 15, 2006 council approved a
site plan for the planned renovation.
The city advertised and invitation to
bid for the renovation project on Jan-
uary 28, 2007 and the lowest bid re-
ceived was in the amount of $267,880.
Council rejected this and all other
bids and directed city staff to re-bid
the project in six months.
The public works department re-
advertised the invitation to bid on
September 16, 2007 and received 7
proposals, the lowest in the amount
of $232,975. If that bid had been ac-
cepted there were still other costs as-
sociated with the project. City staff
recommended a 15 percent contin-
gency fund in the amount of $34,946,;
asbestos needed to be removed at a
cost of $3,695; a tree would need to
be removed at a cost of $900; and the
building would need to be treated for
termites at a cost of $2,750. The to-
tal estimated cost of the project would
have been $275,266.
It had been proposed by staff to use
Penny for Pinellas funding to make
up the difference between the grant


and the actual cost. This suggestion
was rejected by council.
According to Brobeil it should be
noted that council did not reject all
bids this time, but they did reject mov-
ing ahead with the renovation. "That
was probably a mistake," he said.
However, because of the rules gov-
erning the process of municipal bid-*
ding, the current bids will expire on
. December 15, 2008. Also, according
to the. rules of the current federal
grant all work must be complete by
July 2008. "There are no agenda
items on the regular December 4
council meeting which would address
this so it would take a special session
to revive this issue," he said. Special
meetings require at least three days
notice to the public. If the work is not
completed by July 2008, Gulfport will
lose the federal grant. Brobeil shid
that the timetable to complete the
project utilizing these funds would
have been tight even if the go-ahead-
had been given by council. Now, it
seems unlikely that there is time to
either accept one of the current bids
or to re-bid the process again.
Brobeil said the next likely step will
be to have the city's building inspec-
tor take a look at the building. "He
will then declare it 'habitable,' 'un-
inhabitable,' or 'condemnable,"' said
Brobeil.
According to Brobeil if the build-
ing is declared "habitable," which he
doubts because the facility does not
have working restroom facilities, nor
does it have air conditioning, then
meeting or group functions could con-
tinue to take place there. Currently,
there is a daily Alcoholics Anonymous
meeting and a few other groups which

utilize the building.
If the building is declared "uninhab-
itable" then holding meetings or other
functions there would no longer be
an option. According to Brobeil, the
facility will need to be "mothballed"
(taken out of service indefinitely) by
the city, an option he admits will still
require an expense from the city to
keep the facility safe and secure.
If the building is declared "con-
demnable" then it may be torn down.
"But the fly in the ointment is that
this building is on the local registry of
historic buildings," said Brobeil.
"It doesn't mean the building
couldn't be torn down; that's a mis-
conception," said -Brobeil. "But you
would have to jump through certain
hoops before that could happen. I
would estimate it would take about
$10,000 in current dollars to tear it
down."
Brobeil said that there may be some
reservations among elected officials
about helping Gulfport seek a grant
for historic renovations in the future
because of the likely return of the
grant received for Scout Hall.
"There is always a price to be paid
politically for a politician to secure
federal funds for a local community,"
he said. "I would assume that if we
don't use these funds this time, the
next time there is a request that there
will be a lot more caution before it is
granted."
Brobeil concluded by saying that
there still need to be several actions
taken by council next year in regard
to the future of the building. "It will
be several months before we really
know how we are going to proceed."

Highwaymen Visit Florida
Show at Sunken Gardens










I . . .





By Cathy Salustri
R. L. Lewis signs a Highwaymen calendar at last weekend's Florida Show at Sunken Gar-
dens in St. Pete. The Florida Show, organized by Hula Hula, focuses on retro Florida and
Floridana collectibles. Local exhibitors included Lighthouse Books, but Floridana purveyors
and collectors alike came from all over Florida. This past weekend's events featured vin-
tage Floridana as well as lectures on the history of the Aloha shirt and a discussion about
barkcloth fabrics.
Highwaymen James Gibson, Isaac Knight, and R. A. McLendon, Sr. also had their works
on exhibit at the show. The next Floridana show will take place in February at the Gulfport
Casino.

You & THE


LAWI

What are the
Responsibilities of a
Successor Trustee?
The use of a revocable living trust
allows the beneficiaries of a trust to
receive the assets of a deceased trust
settlor without requiring formal Pro-
bate Court approval. A named succes-
sor trustee in a trust document has
certain responsibilities which should
be performed in the administration
of the trust. Some of the ordinary
and necessary steps which a succes-
sor trustee should take in lawful and
proper trust administration are:
A. The trust document should be
reviewed for legal sufficiency and
interpretation as well as each trust
amendment;
B. The implementation of the substi-
tution of the successor trustee should
be accomplished;


C. Interested persons concerning the
administration of the trust should be
served with the required notices in a
proper and timely fashion;
D. A successor trustee has a legal
duty to protect, insure and manage
trust assets and my have liability
for the improper accomplishment of
these legal duties;
E. A successor trustee has an affir-
mative duty to invest trust assets in
accordance with the prudent investor
rule;
F. A successor trustee is responsible
to make any contributions due to the
personal representative of the de-
ceased settlor's estate in order to pay
for creditor claims, administrative
expenses and/or estate taxes;
G. A successor trustee has an obliga-
tion to inform and account to benefi-
ciaries of the trust in a manner that
is lawfully documented;
H. A successor trustee has a respon-
sibility to make payment or compro-
mise any claims made by creditors
against trust assets;
I. A successor trustee is required to
identify and file all tax returns in a
timely and proper manner and is li-
able to ensure that all due taxes are

paid;
J. A successor trustee is required
to obtain a nontaxable certificate if
the personal representative of the
deceased settlor's estate has not ob-
tained the nontaxable certificate
from the State of Florida;
K. A successor trustee is required -to
distribute income and/or principal to
beneficiaries of the deceased settlor's
trust and is required to fund any fur-
thei trusts provided for in the trust
document; and
L. A successor trustee is obligated
to perform all trust administration
responsibilities as a fiduciary and
should avoid self-dealing, prejudice
or conflicts of interest. A successor
trustee has a duty of impartiality in
the performance of obligations to the
trust beneficiaries.
The above is only a partial list of the
duties of a successor trustee after a
settlor of a trust passes on. Most of
the successor trustee's duties should
be accomplished with the guidance
and assistance of competent legal
counsel.

Scout Hall Renovation
Dear Editor: At the November 6th
council meeting, the council voted
2-2 to not appropriate the additional
funds needed to complete Scout Hall's
remodeling. Councilwoman Stull was
not in attendance.
They did not vote down the project or
the grant funding. They voted down,
by not approving with the tie vote,
the additional monies that would be
needed to add to the lowest bidder to
complete the project.
Since 2001 we have been working
to renovate this building, one of the
oldest in Gulfport. Since 2001 the
council has voted to pursue the reno-
vations. When Mayor Yakes received
a $200,000 grant from the federal
government in 2005 to restore this
building, residents and the council
were excited and relieved that reno-
vations could finally begin.
There were matching city funds
that we committed to in order to
obtain this grant (I think $50,000).
When council approved accepting the
grant they knew the city would be


responsible for that match.
ies for that match came fro
for Pinellas" monies which
be used for building. Acc
the bid, the additional fun
were less than the $50,000
by the city when the gran
cepted.
I'd like to urge the court
visit this issue at the next
scheduled meeting on Dec
when all members of coun
attendance. This vote is mu
portant to be settled on a
2001, city residents have
their desire to have this bui
served. We have waited pa
begin this project. Please I
back for a full council vote.

Soon after, they opened the doors at
the Pasadena restaurant, working
as a family to make the restaurant
work.
"They risked everything. They bor-
rowed from everyone they could bor-
row from," Shain said. "They had to
succeed."
In Georgia, Newberne attended law
school, ran a kitchen design and ap-
pliance repair business; he sacrificed
it all to start the Pasadena Gigi's.
In Florida he had only a recipe for
sauce and dough, the GiGi's name,
and a dream.
They tweaked the sauces, creating
separate recipes for the pizza sauce
and the pasta sauce. They made
their own spice bags for the sauces,
meatballs, and sausage. They made
their own salad dressings at the res-
taurant and, as they expanded to the
beaches, each restaurant made their
own salad dressings as well.
After a few years, GiGi's showed a
profit and Newberne could breathe a
small sigh of relief. His dream had
come alive. Forty years later, the
Georgia GiGi's has closed its doors,
but the Newberne family- restaurant
still stands.
When Vergil and Dot Newberne
retired twelve years ag6, Shain and
her brother Steve took over the res-
taurant. They kept their parent's
recipes and still spend their days
and nights at any one of the three
restaurants.
"It's rare that you'll walk into this
restaurant and not find one of our
family here," Shain said. She and
her brother believe in their parents'
idea of a family restaurant. Consis-
tency matters to customers, but it
may matter to the Newberne fam-
ily even more. They still prepare the
spice bags themselves, make their
salad dressings at each restaurant,
and the dough recipe hasn't changed
either.
This Saturday night, from 7 p.m.
9 p.m., they will celebrate their
parents' dream with champagne and
| cake at the restaurant. Virgil and
Dot Newberne, now retired in Geor-
gia, will be on hand, and Shaine and
her brother hope that friends and
customers, both old and new, will
stop by to join the celebration.

My mother loved to shop. As
a child, I was toted to every
department store, discount
store, outlet store afid garage
sale within 30 miles of our house.
Needless to say, Tyrone Square Mall
was our second home. Frankly, some
of my earliest memories involve me
hiding inside racks of clothing, trying
to entertain myself with safety pins
while my mother spent countless
hours examining every possible outfit
and shoe combination.
Now, I don't begrudge the woman.
We hardly ever had any money in
those days, so my mom's excursions
were usually just fodder for her wish
list. But I don't mind telling you that
as a kid-as a teenager, and even as
an adult-I have despised shopping.
For me, getting new clothes is right up
there with a visit to the gynecologist.
About'the'closest I come to shopping is
perusing the wine list at a restaurant
or browsing the stacks at my local
bookstore. Honestly, sometimes I
wonder how my mother and I were.
ever related.
All of this is to say that I, like so many
other people who loathe shopping, am
in a quandary this time of year. Put
aside my personal opinions about how
commerce has stolen anything that
was ever sacred about the holidays;
put aside how it infuriates me that
families with no religious inclination
whatsoever will put themselves into
a yearlong debt just to keep up with
their neighbors.
The truth is, I have long wanted to
tell my family that I have donated all
of the money I would spend on their
presents to some deserving charity.
But really, how do you tell a little kid
that their gift is the knowledge that
some homeless person will sleep in a
warm bed tonight?
I know, I know. In that way I have
succumbed to all of the marketing
and commercial come-ons that
saturate our holidays. But, two days
after Halloween I visited a Walgreens
and found myself face-to-face with a
giant, inflatable Rudolph the Red-
Nosed Reindeer (itself an entirely
commercial character, created to


entice Christmas shoppers in the
mid-twentieth century). Alas, with so
much marketing stacked against us
and our wallets, how can we possibly
resist?
Undoubtedly the commodification
of Christmas (or the "Holidays" if
you want to get a piece of everyone's
money) has become an indispensable
part of our economy. There are plenty
of businesses that would fade into
the sunset without their November-
December sales figures. And, while I
miss the Charlie-Brown-Christmases
of my youth, I cannot deny that once
the holidays are upon us, the manifest
from society is "Go forth and spend."
So, gentle Gabber reader, that is why
this year I am extolling the virtues of
the small business.
I mean, really. Why should Macy's
and Penny's and Best Buy get most
of your "good will"? In my opinion,
giving all of your hard-earned money
away to these holiday profiteers is
just one step away from selling your
soul. For yourself and for your giftees,
I say: You can do better.
Remember the Art District? Yeah,
that's not just a quaint promenade
for you to stroll twice a month. These
are (tiny, community supported)
businesses with way cool items for
sale-items that would make a very
fine (and interesting) contribution to
the extravaganza under your tree.
Anyone can walk into Circuit City
and get a flat-screen TV or some
yuppie HD radio, but c'mon. If you
can afford that stuff, chances are your

family can as well! Let them get the
impersonal, big-ticket items.
Local businesses are what make our
communities such fine places to live.
They're what we're built on. Think
about it: Why not make your loved-
one happy AND contribute to the local
economy? As Martha Stewart-the
First Lady of creative gifts-would
say: It's a good thing.
I am not here to endorse any one
business over another, or any one
district over another. (Though, for
that matter, the Grand Central
District in St. Pete is the perfect place
for you to pick up some enchanted
item for that finicky gift-receiver:)
All I'm saying is that if you, like me,
are crippled by the expectations of the
gift-giving season-if the thought of
setting foot in a mall makes you break
out in hives-there are alternatives.
Personally, I'm still pulling for the
real spirit of Christmas. And I'm
hoping that this year, my family
will not be too outraged by a wee
fewer presents under the tree. What
I mean to say is that you see, little
Susie...your gift this year will be the
satisfaction of knowing that Aunt
Shelly is spending Christmas under
a palm tree in Puerto Rico.

H ow's this for inexplicable? I'm
at home alone on Thanksgiving
morning. The Macy's Thanks-
giving Day Parade is on television. And
I'm thinking about politics.
Okay, maybe not inexplicable it can
be explained. I'm alone because Michael
is at work. His department at work ser-
vices foreign clients and they don't ob-
serve our Thanksgiving. So somebody
has to be there and he drew the short
straw. He should be home about noon
and then we'll head across the bay for
Thanksgiving dinner with friends.
The politics part is a little harder to
explain, but I have this column to write
and I'm thinking about politics because
it looks like we're heading for a sea
change, politically speaking, in this
town.
Why? Because two members of the
City Council, who probably have some-
thing like 40 years of service on the
council between them, have announced
they are leaving. In my book, that's big
change indeed.
Ted Phillips, the long-time coun-
cilmember from Ward 1, is not running
for reelection. In fact, he and his wife,
Goldie, have purchased a home else-
where and are in the process of leaving
Gulfport. He's been a strong presence
on the council since before I moved
here 17 years ago, and it's difficult to
imagine the City Council without him.
But he is leaving. Unfortunately, he's
chosen to do it without much dignity.
And Mayor Mike Yakes, who was re-
elected this past March to a three-year
term and is now the longest-serving
mayor in Gulfport's history, announced
earlier this year that he would not be
serving out his term and would be step-
ping down. He hasn't specified when,
yet.
There you have it: two very notice-
able departures; two large voids to fill;
two reasons to think that things will be
changing, big time.
The council seat for Ward 3 is also up
for election, this year, and the incum-
bent has an opponent. So that's anoth-
er possible change. And we have an in-


Big changes

in store for'

City Council

VIEWPOINT

teresting and varied slate of candidates
for the January election.
Probably the best known is Bob
Worthington, the incumbent in Ward 3.
He has served two terms on City Coun-
cil and is a lifelong Gulfport resident.
If there's anyone around who doesn't
know Worthington, I haven't met
them. He's also become an increasingly
visible and outspoken member of the
council, leading the way on issues like
the clean-up and restoration of Clam
Bayou and building a mooring field.
Also well known is Judy Ryerson,
who is running for the Ward 1 seat.
If not a lifelong resident, she's been
around a long, long time, raising her
family here, participating in the com-
munity -and working for the city. She is
a founding member and leader of both
the Gulfport Historical Society and the
Gulfport Community Players and is
still very active in both organizations.
She also serves on the city's Planning
and Zoning Board.
Less well know is Rick Gilbert, who
is also running for the seat in Ward 1.
He used to have a flower shop on Beach
Boulevard in the Art Village, but has
since moved it to 58th Street. And he
has appeared with some frequency at
City Council meetings and, on occasion,
in the pages of The Gabber usually, I
think it's fair to say, to disagree with
something that is going on in Gulfport.
The least well known of the candi-
dates, I think, is Angela Leiner, who
is running against Worthington for
the Ward 3 seat. I know little to noth-
ing about her, although I'm sure she's
better known in her neighborhood. I
understand that she's a young woman
and a mother, and that she has a law
degree. I don't recall ever hearing her
participate in City Council meetings.
Beyond that, we'll have to wait until
she introduces herself during the cam-
paign.
Somewhere in there, among the four
candidates, are going to be an interest-
ing couple of races. At least there are
no unopposed races this year, which
happen far too often inf this town for


my taste.
Even more interesting, to me, with the
potential for even more impact on the
city, I think, is what is going to happen
after the election. In fact, the subject
fascinates me. Here's why.
Ted Phillips has not only been a City
Council member, he has also been the
vice mayor for years. Normally, be-
ing vice mayor is not that big a deal.
The vice mayor basically fills in for the
mayor when the mayor is absent; oth-
erwise, he or she is pretty much just
another council member. The vice may-
or is chosen by the council after each
election.
But the mayor has already said that
he is not going to serve his whole.term.
He hasn't actually set a date, yet, for
his retirement, at least not publicly,
but I think it's fairly safe to assume
that it will be sooner rather than later.
Otherwise, why would he be talking
about it now?
And here's what the city charter has
to say on the subject:
"The council shall elect a vice mayor,
annually, from among the current coun-
cil members at the organization meet-
ing following the general election, or as
soon thereafter as practical, who shall
act as mayor during the absence or dis-
ability of the mayor and, if a vacancy
should occur, shall act as mayor for the
completion of the mayor's unexpired
term as provided in (this charter). The
vice mayor shall be elected from among
the council members."
So that's pretty clear. If and when the
mayor steps down, the new vice mayor,
who will be chosen by the council af-
ter the election, will become the new
mayor for the rest of the mayor's terrh
in office. And the mayor has two more
years to serve.
Now that, to me, is interesting: two
long-time City Council members leav-
ing, arid possibly getting a new may-
or in the deal, as well. That's what I
meant, back at the beginning, when I
said "sea change."
So who is the new vice mayor, the
potential mayor, going to be? Don't
know.
But I think it's safe to assume that
I'm not the first person, by a long shot,
who has thought about this situation,
and about the outcome. I'll wager that
some people have already given it quite
a bit of thought. There might even have
been some behind-the-scenes maneu-
vering, already.
In fact, I'm sure of it.

r.( W&.AL


Jeremy had been expecting the
police to come back for some
time, now ever since he had
gone to Wood Ibis Park on the evening
of the second murder and been discov-
ered there by the young detective. He
knew it had looked suspicious, like he
was revisiting the scene of the- crime,
and thought the police would proba-
bly show up at his shop the next day.
But they hadn't.
So why was he surprised when they
showed up now, in the middle of a
slow afternoon, several weeks later?
He was sitting at his desk in the
storeroom, paying bills and not enjoy-
ing the process at all, when he heard
the front door open and someone en-
ter.
"Good afternoon," he heard Lydia
say. "What can I do for you?"
"Is Mr. Post around?" he heard a
male voice ask, and Jeremy's heart
sank. He wasn't sure if he recognized
the voice or just the official sound of
it, but he knew instantly that it was a
police officer.
Jeremy steeled himself, sighed to
relieve the instant tension he felt,
picked up his coffee cup and headed
out the storeroom door into the shop.
"Yes," he said, "I'm here."
There were two officers the same
two, in fact, that had come to the shop
earlier, after the first murder. And the
,younger one was the one he talked to
in the park that dark night.
"Good afternoon," the older officer
said. "I'm Lieutenant Palmer with
the Gulfport Police Department. This
is Detective Sanders."
"Yes," Jeremy said, nodding, "I re-
member."
"We'd like to ask you a few ques-
tions," Palmer continued, "if you don't
mind."
"Of course," Jeremy said. Then,
without thinking, he raised his cup
and asked, "Would you like a cup of
coffee?"
As soon as he said it, he cringed.
Great, he thought. Make it look like


you're trying to ingratiate yourself
with them. That'll help.
"No thank you," Palmer said, rather
cooly.
Sanders glanced at the older officer,
then said, "Yes, I believe I would." He
ignored the glare from Palmer.
Jeremy fetched the coffee and handed
it to the young officer, then waited for
.the next shoe to drop. At this point, he
had decided that silence would prob-
ably be his best approach.
Palmer glanced sideways at his part-
ner, and then took control.
"We're canvassing the area," he said,
"pawn shops, jewelry stores, things
like that."
Jeremy nodded.
"We're looking for some jewelry
items, some specific jewelry items."
"You mean, like the gold cross I read
about in the paper this morning?"
Jeremy asked.
Palmer looked at him intently. "Yes,"
he said, "exactly like the gold cross."
Jeremy shook his head. "Haven't
seen it," he said, "or one like it."
"Have you ever sold an item like that,"
Palmer asked, "or similar item?"
"No," Jeremy said. "It's not my kind
of merchandise."
"Are you sure?" Palmer asked, watch-
ing him closely.
- "Of course I'm sure," Jeremy an-
swered, annoyed. "I know my mer-
chandise." Before he could stop him-
self, he added, "and I don't carry
lockets or wedding rings, either, if
that's your next question." He could
have bitten off his tongue.
"It was," Palmer said. "You seem
to know an awful lot about these
crimes."
Jeremy immediately regretted loos-
ing his cool. Your big mouth will get
you in trouble every time, he told
himself.
Out loud, he said, "I read the news-
paper," and shrugged his shoulders.
"And I pay attention. Everyone's pay-
ing attention to this thing. Surely you
know that."


Young Sanders spoke up for the
first time. "Everyone doesn't wan-
der around at night visiting crime
scenes," he said.
There it is, Jeremy thought. "Yes, I
know," he said, "and I shouldn't have
done that. It's just that..."
"It's just that," Sanders continued for
him, "it reminded you of Charleston."
Jeremy was shocked into silence.
"Yes," Sanders continued. "We
know."
Jeremy nodded, but before he found
his voice, Palmer turned to Lydia, who
had been uncharacteristically quiet.
"What about you, Ms. Fletcher?" he
asked. "Have you seen any of these
items?"
Lydia shook her head.
"An engraved gold cross? A heart-
shaped locket? A gold wedding
band?"
"No," Lydia said. "Nothing." Jeremy
had never seen her so tongue-tied.
Lieutenant Palmer nodded, said "I
didn't think so," then bent over the
glass-topped jewelry case and began
to examine its contents. Over his
shoulder, he asked Jeremy, "I don't
need a search warrant to look around,
do I?"
"Of course not," Jeremy answered.
Filling with resentment again, he al-
most added, and- stop treating me like
an accessory. But, fortunately, Jason
Pendergast burst into the shop at'
that moment. Saved by the bell, Jere-
my thought, or by the fool. He figured
Pendergast had seen the, police car
outside and just couldn't stay away.
"Being grilled again, I see," Pender-
gast said.
"No," Jeremy answered, "not grilled.
They're just looking for jewelry."
"Ah-ha," Pendergast exclaimed, as
if he was Sherlock Holmes or at least
Dr. Watson. He turned to the young
policeman. "I've been wondering, was
this latest young woman really stran-
gled with her own necklace?"
Lieutenant Palmer straightened up
and looked at Pendergast, a look of
disbelief on his face.
Jeremy welcomed the comic relief.

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 concludes
with a discovery.

Elements Global -Cuisine, located in Gulfport was
the 1st place winner in the Restaurant category of
the Grand Central District's 3rd Annual Chili Cook
Off held Saturday November 24.
This was the first time Elements restaurant partici-
pated in the cook off with. 25 other entrants.
"With such strong competition and as a newcomer
we did not expect to win" says pastry chef, owner and
chili-maker Catherine Pawelek. "But it was a won-
derfully unexpected surprise that the judges chose
our chili."
The Paweleks felt that part of their success was in
the combination of half a dozen spices and herbs in-
cluding coriander, cumin and cilantro as well as the
5 meats, 4 beans, bell peppers and myriad of other
ingredients. "The fact that we make the chili days
in advance and let all the flavors intermingle might
be another indication on why the judges liked it. To
have won this competition is a true accomplishment"
shares chef and owner Jose Luis Pawelek.
The restaurant plans to feature their award-wining
chili as a special menu item throughout the winter.
