49 Days of Contemporary Art
The 49th Street corri-
dor starting on Seventh
Avenue S. and running
the length of Gulfport has
an eclectic collection of
buildings with easy access
to all parts of the Tampa
Bay area. This makes the
area ideal for the devel-
opment of a home for the
creative industries such
as architectural, design,
advertising firms, gal-
leries and artist studios.
49/1 hopes to act as a
catalyst in ushering a
new and exciting era for
the arts in Gulfport. The
programs of 49/1 empha-
size contemporary art or
the art of our time. This
implies that this festival
will encourage artistic
49/1 is the first of a unique annual Contemporary Arts Festival that uses risk by presenting art in
interesting alternative venues for the presentation of contemporary art.
It runs from January 12 through February 29 along 49 Street in Gulfport. See 49/1, page 37


Gulfport Mayor Yakes
By Cathy Salustri
Mayor Mike Yakes say s
he plans to finish his term
as Mayor for the city of
Gulfport.
"I made a quick statement
that 2008 I would retire,
and I also said that our
City was running good and
I was confident of the direction we're going,
and I don't have that confidence. "I really felt
we were headed in a direction to work together
through these politically sensitive issues, and
I dop't have that feeling anymore. Also, when
that article came out that I was entertaining
retirement I had an overwhelming response
asking me to reconsider and stay."
Recent negative campaigning has also
motivated him to stay in office.
"Our quality of life is based our ability to
agree to disagree and make compromises
as necessary," Yakes said. He wonders how


Will Finish Term
people who run what he calls "mudslinging
campaigns" can serve the City.
"I believe it's a diversion of their inability
to understand the issues." If people can't
represent themselves in a campaign without
negativity towards others, Yakes asks, how
can they represent their wards?
The Florida Commission on Ethics has also
recently cleared Yakes of any wrongdoing in a
recent ethics complaint.
During the Mayor's bid for re-election last
spring, Rick Gilbert and Clark Scherer, Jr.
lodged complaints with the ethics commission.
Gilbert alleged that Yakes had a conflict of
interest with a company the City hired to
perform contract work. Scherer ran'for Mayor
last spring; voters will choose between Gilbert
and Judy Ryerson in a Council election later
this month.
Yakes said he disclosed his involvement
and, on advisement from City Attorney Tim
Driscoll,

"Anybody for Murder?"
Opens Tonight
The Gulfport Community Players
open the New Year with a thrilling
comedy, written by Bian Clemens
and Dennis Spooner, entitled "Any-
body for Murder?". The play will
run for three weeks, from January
10 through 27 at the Catherine A.
Hickman Theater of Gulfport. Tick-
ets are on sale now for just $15 each,
and are available at Eileen's Resale
Boutique, the Beach Bazaar, the
Gulfport Chamber of Commerce, the
Gulfport Casino, at the door, or by
calling 322-0316.
The director for the play is Judy
Ryerson, who is at her peak while, di-
recting comedies.
This comedy is a very physical com-
edy throughout the entire produc-
tion. It seems that everybody in the
play is trying to murder everyone
else for that old reason, greed! Plans
and plots abound and pandemonium
breaks out among the players. One of
the writers of this play wrote the TV
series, The Avengers. Need we say
more?

Falcon is Still Missing
The Suncoast Seabird Sanctuary con-
tinues its search for Bobby, its missing
American Kestrel falcon, after several
confirmed sightings over the week-
end. It appears Bobby survived freez-
ing temperatures last week and has
found food on his own, even though he
is partial blind and has been raised in
captivity his entire life.
The bird was last seen over the
weekend in Pinellas Park near 94 Av-
enue and 66 Street N. with the leath-
er straps (jesses) still dangling from
his legs.
Bobby is a colorful, male falcon and
is well-known throughout Pinellas
County as the Sanctuary's, "Bird Am-
bassador," having visited hundreds of
schools, events and organizations for
many years. It has permanent vision
damage.
The bird escaped while it was being
transported between cages on Decem-
ber 31 at the Sanctuary. The Sanc-
tuary has received hundreds of calls
from concerned people and reported
sightings.
The bird is approximately 12 inches
high with a wingspan close to 14 inch-
es. It has blue-gray wings and a red-


dish brown lightly spotted chest a
belly. It makes a loud series of "kle
klee-klee" notes when excited.
If the bird is injured or on the ground,
please place a towel or blanket over it,
and place it in a well ventilated box
and bring immediately to the Sanc-
tuary hospital located at 18328 Gulf
Boulevard in Indian Shores)
Please call 391-6211 if the bird is
spotted.

Donate That
Old Bicycle
Beach Cyclist Sports Center at St.
Pete Beach has started a unique
program to help the less fortunate
acquire a used bicycle. Donated and
trade-in bicycles are turned over to
"The Recovery Bikes Program" where
they are repaired and made road
worthy. These bikes are then offered
for sale at an affordable price. That
old bicycle sitting in the garage could
become someone's dreamboat!
Anyone who purchases a new bi-
cycle can trade-in their old bicycle
or bicycles can be donated as a tax
deduction.

The City of Gulfport's next "Theater on

18 at 6:30 p.m. at the Recreation Field

the sleepy Route 66 town of Radiator
Springs. On route across the country

seasoned pros, McQueen gets to know
the town's offbeat characters who
help him realize that there are more
important things than trophies, fame
and sponsorship.

as popcorn, soda and water. And best

Matthews to Stetson Grads:
Serve the People
By Shelly Wilson

Though the rains had stopped by last Saturday's ceremony, graduates cel-
ebrated the end of their years at Stetson University College of Law inside
Pasadena Community Church. The event, which was marked by ceremonial
bagpipers and the usual cheers of family members, turned 92 new graduates
out into the world to begin the next phase of their lives.
"I want somebody in this group to be a leader," said Chris Matthews, host of
MSNBC's "Hardball," in his commencement address. And though Matthews
offered moments of levity in his speech, including advice, courtesy of former
President Bill Clinton to "listen to the other gender," the overall message was
a call to public service.
Whether it be through elected office or pro bono work, said Matthews, "public
service is really just an amazing thing...I dare you: Make the best of it."
As the new graduates filed out into the sunshine, celebrations began in ear-
nest. After years of hard work and sacrifice, perhaps many in the group will
follow Matthews' advice. But, at least one student was heard over the fray:
"Let's go to medical school now!"

Post #39
By Stacy McBeth
Hello to everyone from all the folks
at VFW Post #39. We are located at
2599 Central Avenue in the heart of
the Grand Central Art District. The
outside of the building has a beau-
tiful mural depicting the men and
women in the military, the huge
torpedo out front is definitely an
eye catcher. The inside of the build-
ing has undergone many changes
through the years. There is a Mili-
tary Memorabilia Museum which
has a huge collection of interesting
material. The bar area has been
graced with new very comfortable
chairs. The bar itself extends into
the game room. The kitchen has un-
dergone a face lift with new cabinets
and a larger work area. The main
meeting room has also had some
remodeling. If you have not been to

Gulfport Beach December

Water Quality Report


By Cathy Salustri
Each week the City of Gulfport
tests the water quality in the wa-
ters off Gulfport Beach. Gulfport
has contracted with the City of St.
Petersburg for the tests.
Every month The Gabber publishes
the results of those tests. If, at any
time, the tests show that the water
quality poses a health risk, the City
of Gulfport will issue a Health Ad-
visory.. Gulfport typically receives
test results within a week of taking
the sample.
Currently, the City tests for two
things: enterococcus and fecal coli-
form. Scientists consider entero-
coccus a common bacteria found in
animal and human intestines, and,
resultingly, in human and animal
excrement. Federal standards used


to require agencies to measure wa-
ter quality by the amount of fecal
coliform along public beach waters
but recently have replaced fecal
coliform with enterococcus as the
standard. Fecal coliform also comes
from the waste of warm-blooded
animals, including humans.
The City of Gulfport currently
tests for both types of bacteria. Test
results will help classify Gulfport
Harbor as "good", "moderate", or
"poor". Enterococcus of less than
35 parts per 100 milliliter and fe-
cal coliform of less than 199 per 100
milliliter of saltwater indicate good
water quality.-
For more information, contact the
City of Gulfport at 893-1000.

R.G. Elmore, D.V.M.
People's pills
poison pets
Q: Several months ago my friends
gave me a puppy to help me get
through my depression. Unfortunate-
ly, the puppy is very active and I am
actually depressed by not being able
to train him properly. I have been
tempted to give the puppy some of
my antidepressants, and other medi-
cations to slow him down. Giving him
a small dose of my tranquilizer might
just slow him down and help both us
to be more sane. Is this a bad idea?
A: While it is understandable how a
new puppy might be too much for you
to cope with while trying to deal with
your own problems, you definitely
should not give him any of your med-
ications. Depending on the amount
of human antidepressant given and
the size of the dog, lethargy, inco-
ordination, vomiting, diarrhea, and
hyperactivity might be seen. Agita-
tion; loss of appetite; tremors; drool-
ing; abnormalities in blood pressure,
heart rate and rhythm; seizures; re-
spiratory depression; and coma are
quite possible whenever human an-
tidepressants are either accidentally
or intentionally given to pets. It is an
understatement to say that pets are
not humans and often react differ-
ently to drugs.
You should never give human drugs
or medications to your dog uniless


specifically advised to do so by your
veterinarian. All antidepressants
and other human drugs should be
kept well out of the reach of animals
and children in a secure cabinet.
Many childproof containers are inef-
fective in preventing accidental drug
poisonings in animals. Of course,
many dogs and cats can quickly chew
through plastic pill containers.
A veterinarian should be consulted
as soon as possible whenever a pet
has ingested any poison, or human
drug. If a local veterinarian can-
not be reached in a timely fashion,
veterinarians are always available
to answer questions through the
American Society for the Prevention
of Cruelty to Animals' Animal Poison
Control Center at 888-426-4435.
As an alternative to giving your
new puppy drugs to slow him down,
you might consider joining a puppy
behavior class or enrolling him in
obedience classes. Your interactions
with the other dog owners in the
classes might be helpful for you as
well as for your puppy. Your veteri-
narian can help you find appropriate
puppy classes in your local area.
Q: Not long ago while watching a
game show on television, we heard
a question related to the idea that
cats have nine lives. Where did this
idea come from? Unfortunately, most
of our cats have not seemed to be so
lucky as to have nine lives.
A: The many stories about cats nar-


rowly escaping injury or death while
falling from high places or being in
other dangerous situations, probably.
led to the conclusion that cats have
multiple lives. Although no one can
state for sure when the statement
that cats have nine lives was first
said, it might have originated'in an-
cient times. Apparently, the prophet
Muhammad had the habit of strok-
ing each of his three cats three times,
which according to some legends
gave his cats nine lives (three times
three).
The idea of cats having nine lives ap-
pears in several works of literature.
A 1546 collection by John Heywood
states: "No wife, no woman hath nine
lives like a cat." Another old proverb
states, "It has been the providence
of nature to give this creature nine
lives instead of one." Shakespeare
mentions the cat's nine lives in "Ro-
meo and Juliet."
Where the myth that cats have nine
lives will always be unknown. How-
ever, it is a nice thought and wish for
our feline companions.

Survey Seeks
Evacuation Plans
The Florida Division of Emergency
Management is updating regional
evacuation studies. A critical com-
ponent of the studies will deal with
how the public will react during re-
gional evacuations. Statewide 18,800
households will be contacted by tele-
phone and interviewed. Residents
participating in the survey will be
asked how they intend to respond if
an evacuation becomes necessary in
. their community and how they have
responded in past evacuations. They
will also be asked how concerned


they are about hurricanes and other
hazards and whether there are any
obstacles that would keep them from
being able to evacuate. Public safety
officials need to know as much as
they can about how their citizens will
respond so they can issue evacuation
notices effectively, provide enough
public shelter space and direct traffic
successfully.
Tampa Bay residents who are not
called but would like to provide
input- into the. study can complete

YOu & THEE

LAW

What Is A
Guardianship?
(Part I)
A guardianship is a formal legal
proceeding in which another party
has control over the legal rights of a
person who is determined by a Court
to be incapable of handling his/her
own affairs. The filing of a Petition to
Determine Capacity is the first step
in establishing a guardianship.
Any adult is authorized to file with
the Court a Petition To Determine
Capacity. The alleged incapacitated
person is called the ward. The pro-
posed party who will take care of the
ward is called the guardian.
After the court received a Petition
To Determine Capacity, a commit-
tee of two (2) professionals, usually
medical doctors, and a third person
is appointed by the Court to ques-
tion and examine the proposed ward
and then report its findings for the
Court's review. In the event an exam-


ining Committee determines that an
alleged ward is not incapacitated in
any manner, the Court will dismiss
the Petition To Determine Incapacity
and the guardianship proceeding is
terminated at this time. If the exam-
ining Committee determines that an
alleged ward is incapacitated in some
way, an Incapacity Hearing will be
scheduled with the Court to deter-
mine, the extent of the ward's inca-
pacity. Attorneys for the petitioner
and the proposed guardian will nor-
mally attend this Incapacity Hearing

for the ward. Generally, a guardian
will be appointed upon the conclu-

If a guardian is determined by the
Court to be necessary for the protec-
tion of a ward's property or person,
the guardian has authority to use the
ward's property for the ward's sup-
port. It is necessary for a guardian to
fully inventory the ward's property
and file detailed accountings to the
Court on a yearly basis. (To be con-

Adventures in Kitesurfing


Better to die on
your feet than live
on your knees.
-Dolores Ibarruri
By Cathy Salustri

Somewhere along
the way I have as-
sumed Evil Knievel
status at The Gab-
ber. When something
comes along that
everyone thinks we
should write about
but no one really
wants to cover, the
assignment passes
to me. I rarely re-
fuse, for two reasons:
one, I'll do anything
reasonably moral
for money and two, I Chase Kosterlitz (Triton Kiteboarding.doi
usually want to. So properly. Photo by Tom Gibson.
when our fearless
leader (Ken) asked if anyone would try kitesurfing, I felt
six eyes swivel in my general direction, and I agreed.
As my kiteboarding instructor clips my kite into a
harness that will shut down my pancreas if it gets any
tighter, I have to wonder why.
I meet Chase Kosterlitz, my instructor, at Fort DeSoto's
East Beach. I notice two things: 'Chase personifies Crush
from Disney's Finding Nemo and these kites have nearly
the square footage as my first apartment.
As Chase shows me how to rig the kite he explains away
my fear that I lack the upper body strength to handle a kite
and he also tells me about the safety features of the kite.
Never Google "kitesurfing accidents" on Google Video if
you want to learn to kitesurf. Which I did, of course, and in
my most studied casual tone I now ask Chase about them.
He smiles and explains about the importance of letting go.
The minute I lose control of the kite, he says, I should let
go of the control bar so the line goes slack and the wind
escapes. If I choke up and try to regain control, the kite
controls me, taking me wherever the wind wants to go. This
can include a romp in the mangroves.
Before I get to that point, though, I have to rig the kite.
Pulling a compact pack and an air pump out of the back of
his van, Chase shows me how to inflate the leading edge of
the kite, which helps it stay afloat when it hits the water.
Next I rig lines to each section of the kite. These lines at-
tach to a control bar that I'll use to control the kite I launch
it. Finally I buckle into a harness that has a large metal
hook in the middle and we start to splash through the mud
flats out to a sandbar.
Once we arrive at the sandbar- Chase smiling, me panting
and smiling (the harness has to fit pretty snug so the kite
doesn't rip it over your head) we wait for wind. As we do I


m) sti


notice the East Beach
-if* hs filling with vans and
pickup trucks, all un-
loading kites. From
160 feet away, the
whole beach has tak-
en on a Beach Blan-
ket Bingo and Gidget
Goes Hawaiian party
atmosphere. I don't
have much time to re-
flect on that because
Chase has hooked the
kite to my harness.
While I've seen these
guys before, gliding
along the water on
boards and doing flips
fifteen feet above the
water, until I hook
into a kite I don't
comprehend what it
arts his lessons with how to rig a kite means to have a 25
square meter sail se-
curely fastened to my
midsection. I take a
deep breath. No, I don't, I can't take a deep breath, the har-
ness fits too tightly for that. I take a shallow breath, and all
at once I fall at the wind's mercy.
Time takes on a surreal quality when you spend it in the
water, so I don't know how long Chase has to stand behind
me, reminding me to stand up, before I start to get it. Se-
riously. I have more than enough strength to control the
kite; staying upright while doing so proves another matter
altogether. You need a strong lower back and legs to keep
you stable in the water kite flirts with the wind. If you don't
brace your legs, the wind takes the kite and you go behind
it, feet useless as they go out from under you.
I spend more time than the average person on, in, or
around the water, but hooked to a kite I get above it. Har-
nessing the wind above you while struggling against the
water takes practice; if I had more time I would learn to
move on (rather than through) the water. I manage to con-
trol the kite for longer and longer periods of time, but each
time I lose control my legs, not my arms, give out and I end
up getting dragged many yards across the water.
"Let go!" Chase calls from behind me, followed every time
by "Stand up! Stand up!" The quicker I stand up the easier
I can launch the kite again.
Then it happens: a gust grabs the kite, and before my brain
reminds my arms to let go, I start to fly, leaving the water.
Completely. I pass over the water, moving behind the kite,
overwhelmed by the total rush of it all, and then, resigned,
I let go. The kite eases to the water; I return somewhat less
gracefully.
What a rush. What a wild, powerful, amazing rush.
Have something you've always wanted to try? E-mail Ken
at News@TheGabber.com and he might make Cathy try it.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, WHEAT
I almost became ashamed of myself,
Because I nearly ran out of time, To
write a birthday poem to Wheat, Be-
fore the Gabber's Tuesday deadline!
I just didn't know what to write, Or
this time where to even start, But
Rippy said "Deb, just start writin'
from your heart."
So that's what I did, I sat still and
waited for the words to come, The
Lord really pulls you through, When
you need to get a job done!
So, as I write I'm thinking, You have
Jodi-Bob with you now. I'm sure when
he reached those Heavenly Gates, He
took a big Jodi-Bob bow!
You two better stay out of trouble,
And stop that crazy carrying on...
Cause the' last thing you need the.
Lord to do, Is call you up and say "BE
GONE!"
For then you'de be flyin around aim-
lessly, With no special place to go,
Heck, you could always drop in down
here, and have a cold one "Don't you
know."
So as we start a new year on Earth, I
pray it's a healthy 2008. Lord knows
we'll all meet again someday, At that
beautiful Heavenly Gate!
We still love and miss you Buck-
wheat!
Debbie, and all of your friends!

By Mary Marsh
The Big 50
Anniversary
Members of the Art Guild of
Treasure Island proudly celebrate
the Guild's 50th Anniversary with
a new exhibit at the T.I. Commu-
nity Center which will continue
through February 28.
Frank Saso, successful in both
fine art and commercial, captures
in acrylic an icy winter in "The
Sanctuary"; a warm day for golf in
"The Good Life"; and fog-shrouded
ships in "Mist Over Tampa Bay".
Frank's award-winning versatility
continues with a delightful, nos-
talgic work in graphite depicting
the many faces of "W.C. Fields",
master comedian of old.
Our mother-daughter artists,
Muriel and Judy Gouze, show
contrasting styles. Muriel paints
with great expertise in traditional
fashion as shown in her beautiful
watercolor "Oriental Still Life".
Judy's work, on the other hand, is
more contemporary with cheerful,
bold colors. Particularly enjoyable
is her self portrait in oil "Coco And
Me".
Former Guild president, Fred
Wilder, offers a striking oil, 'Wait-
ing and Watching", with patient
deer standing in a snowy forest.
His three watercolors demonstrate
Fred's wide interests: "YMCA", a
colorful picnic scene; "For Heav-
en Sakes", with the top stories
of buildings resting on banks of
clouds; and a delightful "Flower
Garden".
Next time we'll introduce our
remaining two exhibitors, Bruce
Fallender and Sonia Smith. Call
the Recreation Center at 547-4575
for hours at the Center located on
Park and 106 Avenue.

Holding Teen
Drivers Accountable
With motor vehicle accidents claim-
ing between 5,000 and 6,000 teen
lives each year, a new survey com-
missioned by Allstate Insurance re-
veals that many teens do not take
personal responsibility for safe driv-
ing and continue to engage in dan-
gerous driving behaviors.
While nearly 90 percent of teens
surveyed said they hope their friends
will be safer on the road in 2008,
just 11 percent included "driving
more safely" among their personal
New Year resolutions. One-third (34


percent), of teens surveyed reported
being frightened as a passenger
because the driver was being care-
less, but did not say anything to the
driver.
Allstate is engaged in a nationwide
awareness campaign to help enable
parents in discussing safe-driving
practices with their teenagers. The
Interactive Parent-Teen Driving
Contract, available at www.allstate.
com/teen can bring accountability to
teens and parents as well as reinforce
the responsibility of passengers and
peers as it relates to driving. The
contract includes 'agreements' and
'consequences' for eight categories


including speeding, time of day,
crashes, number of passengers,
drinking and driving, seatbelts, cell
phone and other distractions.

Game Party
Hold the date! Wednesday, January
30 will be the Annual Card/Game

It's all a myth-
understanding
Sometimes, even doctors are duped
by medical misinformation. Two In-
diana researchers looked at seven
beliefs commonly espoused by physi-
cians and generally (and erroneously)
believed to be true.
The researchers Rachel C. Vree-
man at Indiana University's School
of Medicine and Aaron E. Carroll at
the Regenstrief Institute published
their findings in the British Medical
Journal.
1. You should drink at least ,eight
glasses of water each day. This ad-
vice has been floating around since
at least 1945, but there's no scientific


evidence to support the recommenda-
tion. In fact, excessive water drink-
ing can be fatal.
2. We use only 10 percent of our
brains. Modern medical imaging
shows that there's no region of the
brain that is completely inactive.
3. Hair and fingernails continue to
grow after death. They don't, but de-
hydration of the body and retracting
skin can make it appear so.
4. Reading in dim light ruins your
eyesight. It can strain the eyes and
reduce blinking (which may cause un-
comfortable dryness), but the effects
are temporary. There's no permanent
effect on eye function or structure.
5. Shaving causes hair to grow back
faster or coarser. Numerous studies
have shown this to be false. Shaving

does remove the finer, tapered ends
of hair, which 'can make the remain-
ing stubble seem coarser. And new
hair emerging from the skin can ap-
pear darker because it has not yet
been lightened by sun or chemical
exposure. But shaving itself doesn't
affect the hair at all.
6. Mobile phones are dangerous in
hospitals. There's little real evidence
to support the idea that cell phones
can interfere with critical medical
equipment. All of the evidence cited
is anecdotal and pretty dubious.
7. Eating turkey makes people espe-
cially drowsy. Tryptophan, an amino
acid, is involved in sleep and a form of
it is marketed as a sleep aid. Turkey
contains tryptophan, but so too does
chicken and beef. Pork and cheese
contain even more tryptophan than
turkey. Sleepiness after a big turkey
meal is more likely due to diverted
blood and oxygen flow from the brain
to the digesting stomach.

ACCEPTING NEW PATIENTS






















01 O Burnard looked at the
three photos and admired
his handiwork. He had to
admit that they were superb su-
perbly mounted, perfectly framed.
He had spent a lot of time and ener-
gy getting them just right, but it was
worth it. Too bad he wasn't going to
be able to keep them.
That thought hadn't occurred to him
until today. To him, it had seemed
to be a perfectly innocent pastime:
photos clipped out of the newspaper;
frames bought and paid for at a local
shop. There was certainly nothing il-
legal or sinister about that.
Now he realized that the framed
photos would not look so innocent to
someone else, should someone else
ever see them, and certainly not to
the police. To the police, the frames
would connect him even more direct-
ly to the shop where evidence was
found the cross. And the photos
would connect him to the murders
- not a direct connection, more like
circumstantial evidence.
It saddened him, really. He had
meant to keep them as souvenirs,
sort of a rogue's gallery of his own
making himself being the rogue, of
course. A testament to his skills. But
now they had to go.
The other items, too, but he had
never intended to keep them. He had
always meant for them to be dispos-
able, part of the game.
Burnard opened a small drawer in
the dresser, removed a locket and
wedding ring and held them in his
hand. He had to rethink how to dis-
pose of them.
The easiest way would be to simply
bury them in the garbage, either his
own or some anonymous dumpster,
and let them disappear into some in-
cinerator or landfill somewhere. But
where is the challenge in that?
The original plan had been to de-
posit them, one at a time, in various

Gabber January 10 -January 16, 2008


shops around town like he had done
with the cross at Jeremy Post's shop.
But now he wasn't sure that was
such a good idea.
It was easy to hide something at Jer-
emy's; he was in there all the time, in
and out, part of routine. Much of the
time, he was hardly noticed and free
to roam the shop unminlested.
That wasn't true in any of the other
shops. What if someone noticed him,
wondered who he was, what he was
doing there? What if someone re-\
membered him?
He was going to have to rethink the
entire process. Tomorrow. Today, he
had something more important to
take care of.
Burnard dropped the locket and ring
back into the drawer and removed a
paper bag. In the bag was his lat-
est purchase, another frame he had
bought from Lydia. He removed the
frame from the bag and placed it on
the dresser alongside the other three.
It didn't have a picture in it, yet.

"The worst thing about winter,"
Jeremy said, "is that it gets dark so
early." He and Lydia were shutting
things down and closing the shop,
preparing to leave.
Lydia didn't respond, apparently
lost again in her own thoughts, as
she had been for much of the day.
"Can I give you a ride home?" he
asked.
"No, thank you," she answered, as
usual. "I'll be fine."
Jeremy thought about her an-
nouncement earlier in the day that
she might be leaving. He really
didn't relish the idea. Sure, she could
be a pain in the ass, and she irritated
him no end, sometimes. But she was
a good salesperson. And he really
didn't want to repeat the whole pro-
cess of finding someone else, hiring
them and training them.
"I hope you'll give staying some


more thought," he said, not knowing
what else to say. He couldn't force
her to stay.
She nodded. "I'll think about it," she
said, but offered nothing more.
They both put on their jackets and
walked out the front door, Jeremy
turning out the last of the lights as
he exited and locking the door. "See
you tomorrow," he said to Lydia, who
turned and headed up 'the street.
Jeremy watched. her leave, hoping
he would, indeed, see her tomorrow,
and then headed for his car.
Lydia had said "I'll be fine" when
she turned down Jeremy's offer of a
ride but, the truth was, she wasn't so
sure. For the first time, ever, she was
nervous being on the streets alone.
But she figured that Beach Boule-
vard would be 'busy, then she'd be on
the bus, then she'd only have a short
walk home. She should, indeed, be
fine. She realized that she could have
said "yes" to Jeremy's offer, but had
been in the habit of saying "no" for so
long, she couldn't break it. Besides,
she didn't really want Jeremy, or
anybody, knowing where she lived.
She felt safer that way, and it had
been her rule for a long time.
When she got off the bus, she waited
for the bus to pull out, then waited
for a small dark car behind the bus
to pass, then crossed the street and
began her two-block walk home. She
looked around, saw no one and no
movement and figured she was in
good shape.
When she got to her block, there
was still no activity in the street, so
she relaxed a little, feeling like she
was home free.
She turned up the sidewalk to her
house on the -corner and climbed the
steps to her front door. As she opened
her screen door and inserted her key,
she glanced over her shoulder as was
her habit. She saw a small dark car
driving slowly down the street.
Is that the same car that was be-
hind the bus? she wondered idly. But
her key engaged the lock, the door
opened, and she stepped inside with-
out giving it any more thought.

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 11 begins as
James re-enters Rebecca's life.

JDK Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc.

"Service With That Ole' Time Feel"


By Cathy Salustri

If your air
conditioner
has ever
gone belly-up
on a hot July
day, you know ,
that finding an
air conditioner
technician on
a summer af-
ternoon is like
getting a great
deal on a new 4
car: you want
to believe they
exist but you've
never actually
seen one.
That's why ev-
eryone knows
you need to get
your air condi- Johnny Dean and D
tioner serviced Conditioning and lik
in the off sea- dealing with their ct
son. In Florida,
our off season starts the second week
of January and runs almost seven
whole days. OK, we're exaggerating,
but not by much. Our point? If you
want to glide into summer with nary
a care about your air conditioner,
now's the time to get it looked at. Re-
member your New Year's resolution
to stay organized? Here's a simple
step you can take to keep one thing
in your life running smoothly: get
your heating and cooling systems
serviced regularly.
That brings us to our next question:
where do you go to get such service?
Finding a reliable, honest, and af-
fordable air conditioning company
has brought the strongest men to
their knees.
Enter Johnny Dean and Doug
Keller, owners of JDK Heating and
Air Conditioning. This dynamic duo
got their start in Gulfport at Leon's,
and years later they still operate
their business like he did his.
"We learned how they ran their
business and we liked it," Johnny
Dean explains "When we started
our business, we wanted to run it
like Leon's. At Leon's, the customers


oug Keller own JDK Heating & Air Conditioning. Both men worked at Leon's Air
red how he ran his business. Today they echo Leon's work ethic and honesty when
istomers.


were happy."
And so, it seems, are JDK's custom-
ers: 75% of their business comes from
referrals. They get so many referrals
because they offer their customers a
lot their competition either can't or
won't. They offer new installations
as well as upgrades and regular sys-
tem maintenance. We can give you a
wealth of reasons to give JDK your
business, but in the interest of space
we've! narrowed it down to the top
ten. Here they are:
10. They offer every customer a de-
tailed written proposal as well as ref-
erences and phone numbers.
9 They offer indoor air quality prod-
ucts as part of their system instal-
lations. This includes UV lights, air
filtration, and air purifiers. They can
also install these products into any
existing system.
8. Saturdays don't cost extra.
7. If you sign up for their preventative
maintenance program, you receive a
15% discount on service calls.
6. A service call costs less than $60.
5. They look at the whole home when
they install a new system. They take
into account renovations, insula-
tion, asnd the age of your home when
Paid Advertisement-


they design your heating and cooling
package.
4. They offer free professional advice
onr how to get the most out of your
system, like replacing old insulation,
so you can install a less expensive
system without driving your power '
bill through the roof.
3. They offer free second opinions, so
if you want to make sure you're not
getting ripped off, they'll re-check
your system and provide a written
report- for free.
2. They have a 24 48 hour response
time.
And, finally, our number one reason
for you to call JDK Heating and Air
Conditioning TODAY and make an
appointment....
1. They really do offer "Service With
That Ole Time Feel." Whether in- e
stalling a new system, upgrading an
old, or servicing an existing one, this
company makes it their business
to take care of their customers like
family. S

POWERFUL PRAYER TO HOLY SPIRIT -
Holy Spirit, you who solves all problems, who
lights all roads so that I can attain my goal, you
who give me the divine gifts to forgive and for-
get all evil against me and that in all instances
of my life you are with me, I want in this short
prayer to thank you for all things and confirm
once again that I never want to be separated
from you, even in spite of all material illusions.
I wish to be with you, in eternal glory. Thank
you for your mercy toward me and, mine.
G.B.

NEVER FAILING PRAYER TO ST. MICHAEL
- St. Michael, the Archangel, Defend Us In
Battle; Be Our Defense Against the Wicked-
ness and Snares of the Devil. May God Re-
buke Him We Humbly Pray; and Do You Oh
Prince of the Heavenly Host, By the Power
of God, Thrust Into Hell Satan and the Other
Evil Spirits Who Prowl About the World For the
Ruin of Souls. Amen. St. Michael, I Resort
to Your Protection and in My Faith, Offer This
Light Which Shall Burn Every Tuesday. Com-
fort Me in My Difficulties and While Lodging in
the House of Our Savior Intercede for e and
My Family That We Will Be Able to Hold God
Close to Our Hearts and Be Provided for in All
of Our Necessities. I Beseech You, to Have
Infinite Pity in Regard to Favors I ask of You
(Name Them) So That I May Be Able To Over-
come All Difficulties as You Did the Dragons
at Your Feet. Our Father (Say 3 Times). Hail
Mary (Say 3 Times). Glory Be (Say 3 Times).
This Prayer is to be Said 9 Tuesdays, in Suc-
cession and Each Tuesday a Candle Shal
Be Lighted and a Copy of This Prayer Lft in
the Church to Help Another Soul in Distress
and Support the Devotion to St. Michael. This
Miraculous Saint Grants Everything, No Mat-
ter How Difficult, Before the Termination of 9
Tuesdays. G.F.
