City Discusses Hiring of Manager and City Clerk


Gulfport City Council met on Thursday,
November 6 to discuss how it plans to proceed
about hiring a new city manager and city clerk.
Former City Manager Tom Brobeil resigned
last week and, at the encouragement of city
council, former Clerk Donna Spano and the
city parted ways last week.
A relatively small group of residents attended
the meeting: Bob Newcomb, Al and Cindy
Davis, John Freiberger and Lee Stapella.
"There's several different ways of going about


Attention Gulfport
Business Owners
The city of Gulfport and the Gulfport businesses are
starting a "Shop Gulfport" Campaign.
The city has agreed to decorate the two windows
in the Gulfport Casino with gift ideas from local
merchants.
Any Gulfport business is encouraged to participate
by displaying an item, certificate, or service provided
by their business. Businesses are required to include
a wrapped gift box to display along side the item they
want to feature. The city will decorate the windows
with lights and banners urging passers-by to patronize
Gulfport merchants.
The Gabber will give a free feature of items from
the window each week prior to Christmas. Each
participant must supply the Gabber with a photo of
the item with the gift box and a brief description to
include business name, phone number and address.
For more information call Mike McCue at Domain

this," Councilmember Judy Ryerson told
council, suggesting the city could go through
applications on its own or hire a headhunter
to vet potential candidates, which Ryerson
advocated, calling the application process
"tedious." She also encouraged the city to
determine whether it wanted a national or
state-specific search, reminding council "we've
never gotten a viable candidate from outside
of Florida,

memorial to the armistice that ended
That conflict. It has since become a way

Thanksgiving
Food Drive
The Storage House, the premier
self-storage facility in Gulfport,
is sponsoring a food drive to help
provide Thanksgiving meals to less
fortunate families. From November
1 to November 22 they will collect
non-perishable food items at their
facility at 1219 49 Street S. Please
contact the office at 327-9598 or
hours and a complete list of preferred
items, or just bring what you have.
People who contribute to the food
drive will be eligible to participate in
a drawing for prizes donated by area
businesses. The drawing will be held
at noon on Saturday, November 22.

Theater on the Bay
Over 100 people enjoyed last
month's movie and there are many
more spaces for you to pull up your
own lawn chair to watch the next
free Theater on the Bay in Gulfport.
City of Gulfport hosts "Theater on
the Bay," Friday, November 21 at
7:30 p.m. at the Recreation Center
field on the corner of 58th St. S. and
Shore Blvd. (behind the Rec. Center).
The movie for this month is "Night
at the Museum", rated PG. A newly
employed night security guard at the
Museum of Natural History discovers
that an ancient curse causes the
animals and exhibits on display to
come to life and create major chaos.
If you can come earlier at 7 p.m.,
there will be a Thanksgiving surprise
pre-movie for you to enjoy!
Theater on the Bay will always
be the third Friday of the month
throughout the fall and winter, so
mark your calendars. Bring your
chairs, blankets, family and friends
for a movie under the stars. The Teen
Council will provide concessions for


purchase: popcorn, soda and water.
And best of all, the movie is free!

The Gulfport
Labyrinth is Here
We are all on a path, exactly
where we need to be. The Gulfport
Labyrinth is a model of that path.
Unlike a maze, a labyrinth has only
one path. The way in is the way out.
A labyrinth is a right brain task.
It involves intuition, creativity and
imagery. Among lush gardens
and artistic surroundings, you will
delight in your experience. The


labyrinth is approximately 1032
steps to the center and back out again
and can be walked at any speed.
Teachers book now for field trips!
Located at 5001 20 Avenue S. Open
seven days a week. Admission is
free. Hours are noon till sundown.
Come over before or after the Art
Walk in down town Gulfport every
first Friday and third Saturday.
Hours on those days are noon till 10
p.m. Also Full moon Ceremony on
November 13, 8 p.m. till 11 p.m. Call

ILLSAILv-







Hiring, from front page

because Florida municipal law is
different than other states."
Councilmember Michele King
favored an agency as well but wanted
a national search.
"I wouldn't limit it to Florida,"
King said. "I can't believe it would
cost any more if it were advertised
throughout the country"
Councilmember Bob Worthington
favored limiting the search to
Florida and suggested the city use
the Florida League of Cities to find
applicants.
"I think that we should really
take our time and make sure we're


not jumping into another fire,"
Worthington said. Mayor Mike
Yakes agreed and said he'd expect a
new city manager by October 2009.
During the public comment section
of the meeting, Al Davis called
position "critical" and said that he
agreed that the focus on Florida law
is "significantly unique" called for a
new city manager who understood
managing a waterfront city meant
the city was "at the end of the
pipeline" and understood the Clean
Water Act. Davis asked that the city
look for an "advocate for Gulfport."
In the end, council asked acting
City Manager Jim O'Reilly to "go
out and talk to agencies and then
bring it back," as Michele King


said. "If we're looking for somebody
with an environmental background,
that comes later. If we're looking
for somebody who doesn't have any
illnesses, that comes later."
Council asked O'Reilly to do the
same with the city clerk's position.
O'Reilly and Human Resources staff
Jennifer Valdes assured council they
would "bring back some information"
by the first meeting of December,
including basic job descriptions and
pay studies... if that isn't sufficient
then city will go to outside agency.
"Let us give you something to start
with," O'Reilly said.
Worthington asked for it sooner
and O'Reilly said they would try.

What other city clerks make in
Pinellas:
After Thursday's meeting The
Gabber made some phone calls to see
what other Pinellas cities paid their
city clerks. Some of these cities, like
Indian Rocks Beach, have had the
same clerk for 15 years. Others may
not be full service cities like Gulfport.
Not every city could respond by our
deadline.

Gabber November 13 November 19, 2008














Larry Lewis, St. Pete: "I believe that five million jobs in the US are related to the auto
industry. We probably should NOT bail them out, but it looks like we HAVE to, because
the trickle down from NOT helping them would be massive. As a nation, we can't afford
to risk putting such a significant segment of the population out of work, and that's what
will happen if we don't help the auto industry soon. And it's not JUST the auto work-
ers; it's the OTHER industries that are affected as well. Businesses like tire companies,
retail sales, auto paint manufacturers, auto glass makers; those will be impacted as well.
On the other hand, I believe that in THIS instance, the unions need to look long and
hard at reality and make some concessions, whether they are on health care, pay freezes
or actual cuts, reduced work weeks, whatever it takes for the company to stay solvent.
They might have to accept it for the short term anyway, but that probably will not hap-
pen. Tonight I heard on the radio that before a car rolls off an assembly line at GM, it
has already cost GM $2000.00 in health care benefits. If this is true, then that should be
an eye opener for us!"

Dr. Silas Daniel, St. Pete: "At first I felt really bad for the people losing their jobs and
the fact that an institution seems to be dying so painfully. But then I thought, the com-
panies are SO vast, it might be easier to just let them go bankrupt, and then if they got
a government bailout, it could be regulated. What's the use of throwing money at these
large corporations if there is no regulatory oversight that can see where that money
is being spent? I think the government is making this too easy, there's no control and
they're doing it too fast. The last recession, the government was too SLOW to react and
we had a major recession. Now, I think they are acting too fast in an attempt to try and
bail out everybody. The government only has so much money to give out. Now, with
regards to the auto makers, I think GM, which is so much bigger than the other auto
makers, is a necessary bailout because they could be used, if needed, to make tanks and
necessary machinery if we needed them for a conflict. Even Ford saw the writing on the
wall and started making more fuel efficient cars, and they seem to be hanging in there
ok so far. But you don't see Toyota or Honda looking for bailout money. That's because
they understand the three things that are most important: Management, Labor and
Product. They don't pay their execs outrageous salaries like American auto makers do,
they have a higher standard for their product and their labor is efficient and cost effec-
tive. That's the key..."

Tom Campana, part-time Gulfport resident: "I believe it should ONLY bail out the
auto industry if the bailout includes the restaurant industry, and any other businesses
that are failing. By bailing out selective banks and Wall Street businesses, it seems like
they're picking and choosing who to save. It sounds a lot like Socialism to me. But what
about the other industries that are in financial trouble? Why are some banks fine and
others tanking? It's kind of ridiculous that we bail out some businesses and not others.
Who chooses which ones to save? What about the executives who still get paid huge bo-
nuses even when their companies crash? If the government bails out all of these failing
industries, who's going to bail out the government?"






April Maxwell, Treasure Island: "It doesn't make sense to me to bailout companies
who outsource so much of their labor and materials to other countries. It's like the govern-
ment is supplementing other country's economies at the expense of our own. If a company
is floundering, yet outsources its labor and materials, why should they get a handout? We
need to go deeper, into our OWN economy and shore ourselves up before we end up losing
all concept of our own country's needs. I don't understand the theory of building up another
country when we really need to care for our own country first."

Patronize
Local Business
Dear Editor: One of the benefits
of being a seasonal resident, or what
some people persist in describing as
snow birds, is that every time you
come back to Gulfport, you get a
fresh look at the community. Let me
tell you my impressions this year.
Gulfport doesn't look as clean or
as crisp as it usually does. When I
walk around or ride my bike on our
streets, I get the feeling that there is
a lot of discouragement here. Yeah,
I know this should be no surprise,
and like the rest of you, I am hoping
that the recent national election is
going to change everything. We need
to look at the situation this way; no
matter what the new president and
his administration do, it will be bet-
ter than what has been happening
the past eight years. But I think
there is a more immediate concern.
We are in the middle of difficult
economic times and that means that
some organizations are not going to
survive. Personally I don't lose any
sleep over the potential demise of
corporations like Circuit City, Home
Depot or Linens and Things. These
companies rode the good times wave,
and if they disappear, something
else will take their place.
But I am worried about the small
businesses here in Gulfport. Wheth-
er people realize it or not, these are
more than just businesses; they are
our neighbors, our friends, and they
are the lifeblood of many community
activities and organizations. Losing
local businesses is a situation we
should all view with considerable
alarm. And happily, it is a situation
we can help by making a special ef-


fort to give these businesses the sup-
port they have given to us over the
years.
Don't worry, I am not suggesting
donations or tag days. I am only
suggesting that we patronize these
local organizations. During these
tight economic times, it is tempting
to drive to Wal-Mart for your house-
hold items, to Pet Smart for your pet
needs and to Home Depot for your
home repair needs. When you do
that, you drive by those businesses
that do so much for our community.
I realize that if I buy a weed whip
at Home Depot, I might pay $10 less
that I paid at the Gulfport Hard-
ware Store. But do I want my dol-
lars going to Wal-Mart, which they
in turn send to China or other parts
of the Far East, or would I prefer
that those dollars stay in this com-
munity? Do I really need to save $10
that badly? And let's face it, by the
time you factor in the gas and the
wear and tear on your car, that sav-
ings is considerably less.
Economists regularly say that
consumers vote with our wallets. I
think it is time that we connect our
wallets with our hearts. We have
an abundance of terrific businesses
in Gulfport: restaurants, our hard-
ware store, gas stations, pet supply
stores, gift shops; these are people
who are a big part of the heart and
soul of our community. When times
get better, it won't mean as much if
that heart and soul have been relo-
cated to aisle seven at the Wal-Mart
store.
Bottom line people! Please spend
those dollars in Gulfport. There will
be a payback for all of us.

David Nevue, renowned composer/
pianist, will offer an exciting evening
of piano and storytelling on Saturday,
November 15 at 7 p.m. at Palm Lake
Christian Church, 5401 22 Avenue

He recorded his first album in 1991
and has since released 10 CDs of his
original piano works.
His album "Overcome" was named
best instrumental piano album of
2005 while "The Trees Sleep" received
national air play. "Adoration" was
number one on the New Age Radio
Airplay charts for April 2008. His "O
Come Emmanuel" continues to become
increasingly popular with unique
interpretations of both popular and
traditional Christmas music.
Nevue is known for his intimate
concerts where he plays, tells stories
and warmly connects with his
audience.
This is Nevue's first tour of Florida.

Little Hometown
Soldiers Off to DC
Since 2003 when our war on terror
started in Iraq, Little Hometown
Soldiers, a Christian based youth


organization in St. Petersburg, has
offered encouragement to kids who
have parents and loved ones in the
war zone. They also do shows and
productions for veteran groups in
hospitals, retirement centers and
nursing homes to show appreciation
for veterans who have put themselves
in harm's way to keep our country
safe.
On December 18 they will travel
to do a Christmas production at the
Armed Forces Retirement Home that
houses 1,000 veterans. In May of this
year, they received Congressional


Recognition from Congressman Bill
Young who was very impressed after
observing them at a soldier's funeral
offering comfort to the family.
The community is being asked
to help this bay area group with
donations to defray the cost of this
trip. Make checks payable to Little
Hometown Soldiers, 4604 49th St. N.,

What Steps are Involved
in the Probate Process?
Part II
This Article is Part II in our review
of the Florida probate process and
follows our last feature on probate.
3. APPOINTING THE PERSONAL
REPRESENTATIVE
The court authorizes a Personal
Representative to administer the
deceased's estate. A Personal Rep-
resentative, also called an executor/
executrix, assumes the responsibility
for closing an estate as soon as pos-
sible in an effort to distribute the es-
tate's assets to those who rightfully
inherit them without delay. This
person is critical to the probate pro-
cess.
Personal representatives have a le-
gal obligation to perform their duties


honestly and efficiently. The heirs to
an estate can hold a Personal Repre-
sentative personally accountable for
harming the estate's financial stand-
ing by neglect or deliberate action.
A will typically names the deceased's
choice for Personal Representative,
and Probate Courts will normally
honor this choice. When no will ex-
ists, or if the Personal Representa-
tive named in the will declines to
serve or cannot serve, the court has
the authority to appoint a Personal
Representative Once the Personal
Representative is appointed, the Pro-
bate Court recognizes the Personal
Representative's authority to act on
behalf of the deceased's estate. The
Court issues a document, called "let-
ters of administration," identifying
the Personal Representative as the
estate's official representative. A
Personal Representative can show
this document to a bank officer, for
example, to gain access to a checking
account.
Needless to say, the Personal Repre-
sentative should be a trusted family
member or close friend who will act to
carry out the wishes of the deceased.


A person who decides that he/
she does not want to be a Personal
Representative can decline the ap-
pointment. A back-up, or successor,
Personal Representative is then ap-
pointed. Similarly, if the Personal
Representative feels that the job in-
volves more effort than one person
can handle, the Court may appoint a
co-Personal Representative.
4. INFORMING THE AFFECTED
PARTIES
The Personal Representative is re-
sponsible for formal notification and
the publishing of public notices in
newspapers to inform potential heirs
and creditors about the probate pro-
ceeding. After giving notice, waiting
periods follow. Creditors, heirs, and
others can file their claims against
the estate during these periods of
time.

By Matthew Margolis

Excessive Barking
Barking is as natural as breathing.
Triggered by a state of excitement,
barking is a dog's means of commu-
nicating anger, loneliness, fear, play-
fulness or a need for something.
Excessive barking is barking's ob-
noxious and intolerable cousin. It's
an exaggeration of natural canine be-
havior that can only be eliminated by
either giving in to the dog's demand
or reconditioning the dog. I'd advise
doing the latter -- stat.
The excessive barking of an over-
indulged or neglected dog has ruined
friendships, destroyed relationships
and added to the overwhelm of courts
already jammed with frivolous con-
cerns that are largely solvable with-
out the aid of lawyers and judges.
Time and money are wasted. Friends
and credibility are lost -- and in some
cases the dog itself in the dead of
night. Furthermore, if you're a rent-
er, you may come home to find your-
self staring at a notice to vacate.
So don't ignore your neighbor's
complaints about your dog's exces-
sive barking. Instead, first find out
whether you have a dog problem or a
neighbor problem. Do a little sleuth-
ing. Leave the dog with a friend or
relative, or board him at a local ken-
nel for a few days. During that time,
ask your neighbor whether the bark-
ing has been a problem. If he com-
plains even when the dog isn't there,
you have a neighbor problem. But if
the dog turns out to be the culprit,


there are adjustments that can and
should be made to your behavior, the
dog's environment and/or the dog's
temperament.
Possible reasons behind excessive
barking are vast but rarely mysteri-
ous: tethering, improper confinement
(i.e., in a room behind a closed door),
outside distractions (i.e., construc-
tion, stray animals, lawnmowers,
a steady stream of strangers), bad
weather, separation anxiety, height-
ened territorialism, lack of exercise,
genetics, temperament, hunger.
There's a hilarious cartoon that fea-
tures an impatient pup sitting next to
an empty food bowl at the feet of his
master, an artist consumed with the
masterpiece-in-the-making on the
easel before him. The caption: "And
how about some dinner, huh? One of
the great masters, indeed."
The cartoon makes it clear that
some problems come with simple so-
lutions:
-- Keep the dog in a fenced backyard
or dog run, rather than tethered to a
tree out front.
-- Ensure he gets sufficient exer-
cise -- two or three vigorous walks
every day, with some spirited games
of fetch thrown in for good measure.
The amount of exercise depends on
the breed of dog.
-- When inside, keep him confined to
an area of the house with a baby gate
so he can see his world, rather than
shutting him off from the world in a
room behind closed doors.
-- While you're gone, close window
blinds and drapes, and play soothing


music or low-level talk-radio to ease
the pain of separation and dull un-
pleasant exterior distractions.
-- Give him a Nylabone toy to while
away the hours until you return.
Boredom can contribute to mindless
barking.
-- Don't make a big fuss out of ev-
ery goodbye. This only heightens his
anxiety when you leave, which can
result in a long tedious barking ses-
sion on the heels of every departure.
-- Don't forget dinner and water. A
satisfied dog is a quiet dog.
Barking problems that are more a
matter of DNA than environment are
less likely but more complex, and re-
quire a reconditioning of the dog as
opposed to a mere adjustment to the
dog's environment. This demands
patience and persistence on the part
of the dog owner. Considering the
problems brought on by excessive
barking left unchecked, the effort is
worthwhile.
For information on effective recon-
ditioning techniques and tools -- in-
cluding the Margolis Maneuver and
the proper use of the human voice
in dog training -- visit unclematty.
com or read "When Good Dogs Do
Bad Things," available at your local
library or online at unclematty.com.
Remember, don't get rid of the dog;
get rid of the problem!

AtMtoroscoDe Guide


By Holiday Mathis
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). What-
ever your circumstances, it feels as
though you've been in similar straits
before. You gain wisdom as you re-
member past times, how you reacted
and what the outcome was. You re-
main reasonable and cool, and so
you see solutions. Friday brings the
chance for fantastic fun with your
closest people.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21).
New characters come into your world,
and you'll have to make quick deci-
sions about how far to let them in. It's
not your nature to be guarded; how-
ever, it benefits you to protect your
time and energy now as it sets the
right tone. You will command respect
and prevent being taken for granted
in the future.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19).
People around you have no hidden
agenda because they cannot hide
what they really want from you --
you're simply too keen. You ask all
of the right questions and are able to
get the truth out of anyone. You can
use this skill to structure a relation-
ship or deal in such a way that every-
one will win.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You
could think ahead and prepare for ev-
ery scenario, but that's just not your
style. Your way is to believe in your
whims and act quickly. Your convic-
tion makes things happen and puts
you in the position to control the ac-
tion instead of being controlled by it.
Saturday brings a fun and well-de-
served splurge.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Power
games and politics are all around,
and for the most part you can avoid
playing, but not completely. Tuesday
you are in a position to offer your
mercy. You'll feel better, but do not
expect the other person to be grate-
ful. Instead, immediately turn your
attention to finding arrangements of
mutual self-interest.


ARIES (March 21-April 19). You are
tempted to do more than other people
in order to make up for a lacking you
perceive in yourself. Your work will
make a profound impact once you re-
alize that you lack nothing, and that
the real reason to deliver more than
is required of you is because you are
strong and able. You are enough.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). In
many cases, you've wanted to do more
than your current load of responsi-
bilities would allow for. Having eyes
bigger than your abilities is actually
a good thing. You're ambitious. Pat
yourself on the back, whether you
make it happen or not. By wanting
more than what seems possible you
make it possible.
GEMINI (il.ny 21-June 21). You
show up where you're supposed to,
in the correct timeframe and dressed
appropriately. You say the right
things and can be proud of your solid
effort on all fronts. Thursday you
might feel like you're going through
the motions. Attitude is everything.
To ensure success, apply yourself
with great joy.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). You're
part of an exclusive group, and some-
one new wants in. This brings you
back to when you were in a similar
position, and the memory makes you
feel compassion toward the outsider.
Acceptance with open arms is your
preferred mode, but if you must turn
this person down, you'll be gentle.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You know
where you want to be by the end of
the week, although you hold a be-
lief that only serves to impede your
progress. Anyone can blame their
environment for circumstances, but
you do the remarkable. You consider,
Il. 1l..- it's me" and so root out the
problem, change your thinking and
speed along.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Change
is uncomfortable to the same degree


that you resist it. You realize this
early on and opt for a pain-free ex-
istence. Wednesday provides fast
switches and alternate routes. Roll
with them. Be willing to happily
trade all of those good-on-paper ideas
for real-life experiences that are too
incredible to imagine.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You're
always game for fun, and yet there's
simply too much going on this week.
It's potentially unsettling, but the
remedy is simple: Reduce the num-
ber of variables. Rule out several op-
tions. Narrow your focus to only your
tip-top priorities, and suddenly you'll
feel, and be, in complete control of
your life.
This Week's Birthdays: The uni-
verse will provide you with every last
detail, tool and resource you need in
order to accomplish your main goal.
What happens to your personal life
in December is pure magic. It's all
possible because you readily accept
what is. You'll make a powerful trade
in January. There's an important
purchase in February to aid your
professional life. Family additions in
April bring new excitement. Honor
your promises in June. Friendships
you make in September lead to a
windfall.

Design Public Art
for Tennis Center
Artists are invited to submit
applications for exterior public
art for the St. Petersburg Tennis
Center at Bartlett Park. The center
is both a historic landmark in the
sports history of St. Petersburg and
a vibrant, active sports facility that
serves children and adults.
A new clubhouse with a wrap-
around covered porch/viewing area
will be built on the site of the original
WPA-era clubhouse. The motto of
the tennis center is Proud of Our
Past Dedicated to Our Future.
The Project Committee seeks
art that will relate to the tennis
mission
of the facility, and is appealing to
young people. Art may also help to
interpret the history of the tennis
center, particularly its "Walk of
Champions" on the wrap-around
porch which will display the names
of over 50 tennis players who
have played matches at the center
throughout its history. Art must
withstand the Florida humidity, salt
air, hurricane force winds, strong
UV and unsupervised, frequent
contact with children.
For more information including
architectural drawings and complete
instructions on how to apply, go to

Sexy Body Butter But No Toy Washing


Machine at Fall Garage
By Cathy Salustri
Some people know the holidays
have arrived when Gulfport lights
its tree in ('lyinm.- Park; others gauge
it by the decorations going up after
Halloween. Me? I know Christmas is
nigh when the city holds its annual
fall garage sale.
The garage sale represents a
Christmas of its own kind at The
Gabber. What started as a last
minute idea to get a new take on the
citywide sale became tradition after
the first year. Our fine editor starts
making a list as soon as the city
sends the paper the press release
about the garage sale. Everyone can
put one item on the list and decide
how much they think I should pay
for that item. The Friday before the
sale Ken hands me a wad of cash and
a list of items I need to find. It's as
enmeshed with Gabber culture as
our annual Christmas party in July
(you read that right), and one I look
forward to every year.
This year, though, I didn't have
much luck. It's my fault for looking
at this year's treasure hunt list and
thinking "piece of cake," because I
thought I had a straightforward list:
kitchen scissors, a pole saw, men's
t-shirts (medium), an electric frying
pan, and a toy washing machine. I
started early Saturday morning, but
by 8 a.m. I'd made a couple passes
through the art and waterfront
districts and hadn't found a thing. By


Sale
9 a.m. I'd found a pole saw but not
much else. I did find a few interesting
things, like an impressive collection
of tennis rackets for sale at the
Little League yard sale, a waffle
maker I believe predated Roosevelt,
and enough jars of Sexy Body Butter
to rejuvenate most of city council. I
did find councilmember Mary Stull
pawing through those, so I think
she's got that covered.
For now, though, Gina won't get to
fry anything in her electric frying


pan, but Leigh did get a pole saw and
I found a bamboo serving tray. I never
did find Greg's toy washing machine,
but two-thirds of the writing staff
is happy at least. Of course, Ken's
son won't have any t-shirts that fit
him (he's growing at an alarming
rate) and Ken will survive kitchen-
scissorlessly, but hey, there's always
next year.
Until then, though, if anyone has
a toy washing machine, could you
please drop it by the paper? Greg's
had this on our list for three years
running and I'm really tired of
looking.

Gulfport Beach
Water Quality Report
By Cathy Salustri
Each week the City of Gulfport tests the water quality in the waters off Gulfport
Beach. The City 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 Advisory. The City typically receives test results within a
week of taking the sample.
Currently, the City tests for two things: enterococcus and fecal coliform. Sci-
entists consider enterococcus a common bacteria found in animal and human
intestines, and, resultingly, in human and animal excrement. Federal standards
used to require agencies to measure water quality by the amount of fecal coli-
form 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 fecal coliform of less than 199 per 100
milliliter of saltwater indicate good water quality. For more information, con-
tact the City of Gulfport at 893-1000.

Lovely Laura at the Catherine Hickman
By Cathy Salustri

Reviewing a play for
the Gulfport Community
Players reminds me
a little bit of going
shopping with a friend
and having her ask if a
dress makes her look fat.
There's no way to tell the
truth without having a
really bad couple of days.
Of course, I generally ,
tell the truth, which may
be why I don't have as m r
many friends as some L
people, but that's another
article. The point is, I like
the Players and dread
writing a review for a
poorly produced play.
It's also why writing this particular review is such a delight. Don't
misunderstand, Laura, the Players' current production, has its flaws. In the
end, though, they just don't matter, because Laura captivated me Saturday
night. Victor Carr directed a group of eight talented actors and I had the chance
to talk with him about his directing style. He told me that each actor developed
their own character's history and that he forbade them from watching the
movie based on the play.
Because the actors took the time to think about what happened to their
characters before the play starts you can see some real depth to the performances.
An especially nice touch was Eric Dawson's limp, which Carr said Dawson
added because he believed his character limped from a gunshot wound.
Ellie Levine accepted a small role as Mrs. Dorgan and, despite the small part,
convinced me of Carr's ability as a director. I saw Levine last year in Two By
Two and wondered then about her ho-hum performance, which now I fault the
director for instead of Mrs. Levine, because Saturday night I saw a convincing
and dynamic actress.
Carr selected an evenly matched cast, something that's harder than it seems
in community theatre. Could they be better? Of course they could. But I would
much rather see a show that hiccups occasionally instead of a show where one
or two actors hit all their marks and the rest rarely do, because that just turns
into a race to the curtain call.
Usually the Players only have one intermission but Carr added in a much-
welcomed second intermission. This confused the lovely gentleman next to me
as well as the entire row behind me, because although most plays have three
acts the Players generally offer only one intermission.
All the technical things, except for some very awkward thunder sound effects
that seem to come out of nowhere, work well. I especially liked how Frank Hale
worked practical light effects, like lamps that the actors control, into the light
design.
I can't end the review without mentioning the oil portrait of Laura that opens
the show. Spencer Lucas took the photo of Suzy DeVore and digitally retouched
it to look like an oil painting. When you see the photo you'll understand why
MacPhearson falls in love with Laura before he ever meets her.
Laura only runs one more weekend at the Catherine Hickman in Gulfport. If
you have a night (or Sunday afternoon) free this weekend and you haven't seen
a Players production lately, check it out. Call (727) 322-0316 for tickets.

Cathy Salustri has worked as a stage manager for several
theatre companies throughout Tampa Bay.

and canned goods to help Preceptor
Zeta Zeta with their service project
of assisting with the stocking of local
food kitchens. Members will celebrate
Thanksgiving with a dinner meeting
on Tuesday, November 25 at the home
of Sharon Ingram.
Sunshine City Council's annual
ways and means event was held on
Saturday, November 1 at the Magnolia
Club House at Five Towns. There
were approximately 100 members and
guests in attendance who enjoyed a
wonderful spaghetti dinner complete
with homemade desserts. The
spaghetti sauce cook off was held and
the winner of the Golden Spoon was
Sharon Ingram of Laureate Epsilon
Theta. She was presented with the
special apron, the Golden Spoon and
a gift certificate to Carrabbas. The
second place winners were Kay Ansel
of Beta Xi Master and Valerie Rankin
of Laureate Epsilon Theta and the
third place winner was Paula Adams
of Beta Xi Master. All three were
presented with gift certificates to local
restaurants. The dessert auction was
held and Bo Bauman did a wonderful
job of getting the bids and profits
high. There were some delicious
looking and tasting desserts. Thank
you to all who donated prizes for this
event. Everyone had a good time and
hopefully didn't go home hungry.
The Council Vice Presidents are
planning a Meet and Greet Rush
event on January 17. We look forward
to meeting many prospective members
and telling them more about Beta
Sigma Phi.

DIVRSIIY


Sunken Florida
By Cathy Salustri

New Florida residents get popular
with their northern relatives quicker
than they can say "Mickey Mouse." I
was seven when we moved to Pinellas
and within a year Td visited the
mouse, the mermaids, and a bevy of
other Florida-style tourist attractions
more times than most people will in
a lifetime.

NHnAgTf*For whatever
SHreason, we nev-
er visited Sunken Gardens. Maybe
it was too close to be exciting; may-
be sinkholes and flowers just didn't
light a fire under my relatives. But
I always wanted to know what was
down the street from the big sign on
22nd Avenue North and 34th Street
Last week I finally found out:
Plants.
Lots and lots and lots of plants and
trees and ponds and... well, you get
the idea. If anyone has the silly idea
in their head that Florida is all palm
trees and sand they need to visit
Sunken Gardens. Behind the garden
walls exists an intoxicating rain for-
est teeming with yellow and purple
orchids bright and sweet around you
and splashing waterfalls and verdant
vegetation towering tall and green
above you.
You start out walking at street level
and gradually meander 15 feet down
to the sinkhole floor. As you dip fur-
ther below Florida's limestone crust
you orchids, birds of paradise, and a
myriad of other plants surround you.

WHO In 1902 a man
WOnamed George
Turner, Sr. bought the five acres
surrounding the sinkhole that makes
Sunken Gardens, well, sunken. He
created a terra cotta system of drains
so he could use the rich mucky dirt
at the bottom of the sinkhole to grow
vegetables, plants and flowers. A
year later he started selling exotic
fruit and vegetables. By 1910 the
Turners started charging a nickel


to people who wanted to see their
gardens.
By the 1990s the Turner family
wanted to sell Sunken Gardens, but
St. Petersburg residents had long
ago fallen in love with the gardens. A
grassroots effort prompted the city to
put a temporary tax on the ballot, and
by referendum St. Petersburg voters
opted to pay an extra $3.8 million so
the city could buy Sunken Gardens
in 1999, saving it from rumored
destruction or nudist spas.

B' QrCi Part: Only in
ES.J. IFlorida can
someone convert a misfortune
like a sinkhole into a money-
generating venture. Whether or
not you like botanical gardens-
-without the bird shows,


that's really all that remains-- you
can see one of the first Florida dreams
still at work as you stroll down the
paths. Also, the famingos are pretty
cool, as are the kookaburras.


WORSTr r.
"Florida roadside attraction" like wax
Jesus displays, but I couldn't find the
famous King of Kings Wax Museum
anywhere. Likewise, the big fake
rock entrance I remember seeing on
brochures is also long gone. The city
of St. Petersburg purchased Sunken
Gardens in 1999 and saved it from
almost certain destruction, but other
than one wall of photographs back by
some offices, doesn't seem to have a
true sense of the attraction's history.


MAGICAQuestion; $8
for adults, less for seniors. For $60
your household can get an annual
membership that gives you unlimited
admission, not only to Sunken
Gardens but to botanical gardens
throughout the United States.

nSunken Gar-
,V~E NI*dens opens at
10 a.m. Monday through Saturday
and at noon on Sundays. It closes at
4:30 p.m. every day.


WHERE: F

RUSH'S Reality


A satirical look at the world around us.


By Anne Rush


For a country where millions
upon millions are uninsured,
pharmaceutical companies
sure do saturate us with a lot of ad-
vertisements for expensive medica-
tions. The latest breaking news is
that we should all take a cholesterol
lowering drug, even if our choles-
terol is just fine, because it can still
prevent stroke or heart disease. In
other words, no matter who you are
or what the condition of your medi-
cal condition may be, you need this
drug! Good to know.
I admit that there are some com-
mercials that really hit home to me.
Co-workers and people who know me
well might actually be stunned to
learn that I have more than a pass-
ing interest in a certain bladder con-
trol medicine. But only for my dear
friend. Who thinks that everyone
gets up four times during the night.
I've always loved Sally Field and all
her movies, so I am a bit concerned
about my bone health. Sally Field
would never steer anyone wrong.
But if we're talking about the effec-
tiveness of celebrity endorsements,
why was Bob Dole ever chosen to
be the point man (pardon the pun)
for taking the embarrassment out of
ED? Hmm.
And my, my, we are a litigious so-
ciety. If you read the risk of side ef-
fects for these drugs, you find that
they can cause the very symptoms
you're taking them to alleviate.
One drug lists possible side effects
as headache, sore throat, muscle
aches and either nasal congestion
or a runny nose. It's for a cold medi-
cine. Acid reflux drugs can cause


upset stomach, bloating, dry mouth,
constipation, diarrhea and/or heart-
burn.
But having said that, most of them
have really good warning signs on
the labels. that we could all use as a
prescription for life. For example:
May Cause Drowsiness. Use Care
When Operating a Car or Heavy
Machinery. Well, here's the thing.
You should ALWAYS use care when
operating a car or heavy machinery,
whether you take the darn pill or
not.
This particular drug goes on to warn
Do Not Use Unless You Can Devote
at Least 8 Hours to Sleep. We NEED
to sleep, folks. Sleep is good! Even if
you just lie down and rest.
My personal favorite: Take With
Food. You gotta eat! This medicine is
good to take on vacation with you.
Do Not Drink Alcohol in Excess.
Well, we ought not drink alcohol in
excess (unless of course you're on va-
cation and eating a lot of food at the
same time).
Avoid Direct Sunlight. We Florid-
ians know we should stay out of the
sun at the hottest times of day in the
summer. which is mostly all year.
See where I'm going with this?
Whether you take any prescription
or OTC medications or not, these la-
bels are good life advice.
Which is my gift to people who have
liver disease or who are pregnant
or may become pregnant, have ever
worried about becoming pregnant or
have even so much as been to a baby
shower, because it seems to me that
those folks can't take a damn thing.

Little League, a Gulfport Tradition

By Leigh Clifton
Picture one ball field, slightly
used, one kid standing over a
white plate, bat slung on their
shoulder, looking down that
longfirstbaseline, andthinking
"how am I ever gonna get there
from here", the pitch, a slow
swing... Ahh! Contact, then a
loud voice screams Run,Run,
Run! The kid, a little confused,
drops the bat and runs, runs,
runs...towards the base and
lands softly on it, a huge, wide
smile of accomplishment on That one perfect swing.. Tamir King, 11 hits the
their slightly flushed face... ball at Little League. This is his first year playing and
This is the sport they call Coach says he's a natural.
Little League and it is played
throughout America, but with particular joy here in Gulfport.
Gulfport Little League President and Coach Dawn Johnson lives and breathes
Little League and she is determined to help each and every kid who signs up
learn the fundamentals of baseball. Almost finished with the fall ball season,
Coach Dawn, as she is universally called, is still trying to get the kids to chatter
and hustle out onto the field on this one night. She is at once encouraging and
demanding, a technique she says teaches the kids to respect themselves and
one another.
Coach Dawn says that fall is the time for training and development for the
kids; they are assessed for their skills and placed on teams with comparable
skill levels. But they don't just learn how to throw, hit and catch. Coach Dawn
and the other coaches teach the kids 'life lessons' as well. She is strict but fair
and the kids and parents just love her!
"These kids learn discipline, on and off the field etiquette, respect, listening
and coping skills... all of these can be applied to their lives," she says.
"I like it when Coach Dawn is strict," says Brianna Holmes, a nine year-old
who is playing baseball for the first time. Her brother Tanner, eleven and older
sister Chelsie, thirteen are playing as well and mother Julie Holmes thinks
the discipline and structure is good for the kids.
"This is the first time I've had three kids playing on the same team," she says.
"It's awesome and we all love Coach Dawn.
The Holmes truly make it a family affair; Julie's husband Bob plays catcher
and coaches as well.
Although fall ball for the Gulfport Little League is just about over, spring ball
registration begins in January and the basics learned on the field throughout
the fall season lay the groundwork for the spring season. Little league ball can
start kids playing Pre-T ball as early four years old. Many of the older nine to
twelve year old kids who play now, started out in T-Ball.
Gulfport Little League depends on the kindness of the community and often
strangers, who donate money, time and resources to keep the kids in baseballs,
gloves and uniforms. Recently, the ( 'I, ., ..- White Sox donated catcher's gloves,
bags and helmets. Gulfport Little League's District 5 (our local area) has a lot
of kids who participate, so this generous donation could not have come at a
better time.
"The community has been great to us and many of the local businesses have
sponsored us, with uniforms and funding. But of course, the Little League
could always use more help. With this bad economy, some of our sponsors
have withdrawn and we really could use all the help we can get," Coach Dawn
emphasizes.
The Gulfport Little League is always looking for volunteers, to coach,
help out with equipment, run fundraiser, donate sponsorship for teams, or just
come out and cheer these kids on. If you can help out in any way, please call
Coach Dawn Johnson at 727-710-2676.







Mullet Make Ultimate Sacrifice
For Gulf Beaches Elementary
By Cathy Salustri
In 1930 Gulf Beaches Elementary
held its first fish broil, and 78
years later the tradition holds
strong. Every November the
school fries up several hundred
pounds of the area's unluckiest
mullet for its annual fish fry.
Gulfport's Sav-On Seafood
donated 800 pounds of mullet
that volunteers like Eric Baird
(pictured) fried up for hungry
diners. This year's fish broil
included a carnival as well as an
auction.
These mullet made the ultimate
sacrifice to help make up for
budget shortfalls. According to
Baird the monies raised will
help pay for copier expenses,
computers, and other electronic
equipment the budget doesn't
cover.
Baird's two daughters, Margaret
and Lucy, go to the 5th and 4th
grades, respectively, at Gulf
Beaches Elementary.
