"The Silver Whistle"
Opens January 8
The Gulfport Community Players
will open the comedy,"The Silver
Whistle", on January 8th at the
Catherine A. Hickman Theater of
Gulfport.
The comedy was written by Robert
E. McEnroe and is being directed by
Jim Russell. "The Silver Whistle" has
a cast of 15 plus and should prove
to be a great comedy, especially for
the older folks among us. The play
will run through January 25, with
curtain times at 8 p.m. Thursday
through Saturdays, and at 2 p.m. on
Sunday.
The plot revolves around a lively
man, who says he is 77, who checks
into an old folks home. Later, we
come to find out that, in point of
fact, he is only 40. That really makes
no difference at all though, since
everybody at the home (at first)
thinks he is an old man.
He passes out to the men folk at the
home a magical aphrodisiac (?). Telling
tales of his alleged foreign travels and
female conquests, he captivates the


place. Then he manages to steal the
equipment and supplies for a charity
bazaar. The truth about him finally
surfaces though and he beats a hasty
retreat, leaving the home a very
much different and happier place!
The basic theme of the play is that
all people crave illusions, no matter
what their age, and that while there
is hope, there's life after all!
Tickets are on sale now for just
$15 each. Get them at Eileen's
Resale Boutique, the Beach Bazaar,
the Gulfport Casino, the Gulfport
Chamber of Commerce, at the
door, or by calling the Players at
322-0316.

The Grass Roots
Trio in Concert
Pass-A-Grille Beach Community
Church on St. Pete Beach proudly
presents a free concert featuring
The Grass Roots Trio on Sunday,
January 11 at 7 p.m. in the church
Sanctuary. This is truly a musical
experience you won't want to miss.
It features a heartwarming, toe-
tapping and soulful program of
gospel, Appalachian, jazz, southern
spirituals and contemporary praise
arrangements, making three
instruments sound like an entire
orchestra.
The Grass Roots Trio has inspired
and touched the hearts of listeners
from the cathedrals of England, to
the Crystal Cathedral in California,
to the small country churches in
America's heartland. If you can
imagine Garrison Keillor meeting
Aaron Copeland on Bourbon Street,
you can begin to get a sense of The
Brass Roots Trio. This program
of music truly reaches beyond
classical chamber music to blend in
contemporary American styles.
Pass-A-Grille Beach Community
Church is at 107 16 Avenue, in
Pass-A-Grille on St. Pete Beach.

Medicare and most insuraumn will pay for your investigations and treatment.
ag s aoNotN nelgaaI llA pa TreinL Your Le mVdsin Failure of vein valves causes problems that
are more than just uncomfortable or unsightly. They can lead to problems that are dangerous even life-
threatening. These can now be very effectively averted by modern vein treatment a simple ultrasound
investigation and a simple, painless office treatment Delay will only allow your legs to worsen. Once
valves have failed the condition of the legs gradually and progressively deteriorates

Varicose veins are prone to inflammation with clots, i.e. phlebitis. The risk of deep vein clots is increased
400% with superficial phlebitis. These are the type blood clos that can kill youl
CeUMlku:
Stasis Dermatitis is more than unsightly and uncomfortable. It is dangerous. The sickened skin can become
infected and lead to life threatening sepsis.
Medicatie Side Effectt
Swollen Ankles, Night Cramps/Charley horses, Secondary" Restless Leg Symptoms, Venous Stasis
Eczema, and Venous Ukcers are all often created with temporizing, palliative medications A lady with
swollen ankles from failed vein valves (and not from congestive failure or renal failure), does not have to
increase her risk of stroke and problems of potassium and other electrolyte loss by taking diuretics (eg,
Lasix). She often only needs to have a simple treatment to fix her veins. Simflarly, risking, cramp meds,
quinine, Requip, sleep medications, prolonged topical steroids, and prolonged wound care medications and
others for the conditions above is, with modem vein reanents, often unnecessary and foolish.
The Domino Effret:
People whose legs hurt or feel extraordinarily 'tired' are not as active. This inactivity leads to increased
weight and decreased cardiovascular health. People with nocturnal cramping (night cramps,
'Chaley homes' and varieties of'secondary' restless symptoms) are often sleep deprived. People with
unsighdy legs often have a diminished quality of life....they no longer go the beach and they stay inside
more because walking about all covered up in the Florida hea is difficulL
Deteroration:
Vein problems usually begin very gradually. Your mother or father's terrible legs began with just a few thin
spider veins perhaps and a little aching. Early detection of failed valves by ultrasound is very simple and
treatment is painless. These are key to preventing escalating future problems. Act now. This is a
continually deteriorating condition until treated....What ARE you waiting for?!

Amanda Page, St. Pete: MINy New
Year's resolution is NOT to make
any resolutions; most times they
don't pan out anyway. But with an-
other new year coming, I have to
think about what I can do to revise
my life for the better. The past year
has been such a mess for everyone.
I do want to better my family finan-
cial situation, as I was laid off from
St. Pete Beach where I worked in
recreation marketing for 13 years.
All the cities are broke and it's been
really hard to find a job in my field.
Luckily, I was able to get this job
driving the Gulfport Trolley part-
time and I'm really grateful to get
my foot in the door with the City of
Gulfport. People call me "the Trol-
ley Lady". I also have another part-
time job .1 would love to work full
time for the city, but I feel blessed
to even have an opportunity to work
at all. I would also like for myself
and my family to get healthy and eat
better."


Mary Anne and Jim Ingalls,
Gulfport: "We're always afraid to
make resolutions every year because
we're afraid we'll just break them!
But we both need to stop smoking
and I guess that's a good goal for
2009. But we have to do it cold tur-
key, because neither Mary Anne nor
I like the chemical ingredients that
are in the drugs the doctors prescribe
to help you quit. We've both done it
before and it lasted for a while. Also,
I have to finish painting the inside
of the house; I'm very fussy and it
takes me a long time to do things
like that. Mary Anne calls me a per-
fectionist; it kinda drives her crazy!
We also walk five miles every day;
people around Gulfport know us as
the "walkers". So I'm sure we'll con-
tinue to do that because we want to
stay healthy. We would like to see
the economy get better, with more
American jobs and of course peace
to everybody would really be nice."


Rudy Kehoe, Part-time Gulfport,
New York: "First, like everybody
else, I would like to lose this weight
and keep it off! I also want to eat
healthier and spend more time with
my family. Hopefully, this will be a
better financial year for everybody. It's
my hope that, with a new President,
America can get back on track. He's
certainly got his work cut out for him
and I hope America supports him in
his efforts. I know my kids have been
inspired by him. I own a house here
in Gulfport and I feel really lucky; we
are able to spend two weeks here and
the weather has been the best I've
ever experienced in all the time I've
been coming to Florida. The city looks
great and I was able to rent my house
out, which is a big relief for when we
go back to New York. I'm luckier than
most I guess because we are able to
rent our property and make some in-
come. A lot of others haven't been so
fortunate. We feel really blessed and
I hope that 2009 continues that way
for us."


Lee Bohning, Gulfport: "I haven't given
it any thought at all. I had a great year
in 2008; no health problems at all, my
family is good. I love living in Gulfport,
I have a great house and I can walk ev-
erywhere. When I retired from the Navy
and then later the State of Florida after
20 years, my friend Mayor Mike, whom
I had worked with at the D.O.T., told me
about Gulfport. I had no idea where it was.
When I came here to check it out, I just fell
in love with it! So I moved here and have
been very happy. I just hope next year is
as good as 2008 has been for me."

Letters

A Special Thank You
Dear Editor: I'm writing this letter
to say a very special thank you to a
terrific group of people. On December
17 my wife had a very bad fall. Her
teeth and upper lip were so severely
injured we were sure she would lose
them. After five hours in the emer-
gency room, we were told she needed
to see a dentist immediately in order
to save her teeth.
We called Dentist Obrochota. He
said to come immediately and he
would keep the office open. We ar-
rived at 5 p.m. After x-rays and an
examination, Dr. Obrochota realized
we needed to see an orthopedic sur-
geon. He then called a colleague of
his, Dr. Johnson. They kept the office
open for us after hours.
Their caring and kindness and
prompt attention saved my wife's
beautiful smoke.
These wonderful people restored our
faith in human kindness.

Another Opinion
on the Chickens
Dear Editor: Re: Gulfport says
"no" to chickens, I would like to ad-
dress some of the concerns that two
of our council people had regarding
the ongoing chicken issue:
1. "A step backward for our city"-
In what way? Organic pest control?
Organic, free, healthy eggs? Organic
fertilizer? I guess going green is now
considered a step backward.
2. "Not an agricultural city" First
off, no one is proposing having Tyson-
like farms in their backyard. We're


talking tame and friendly
benefits. Second, does tha
veggie and herb garden is
ate for our newly coined 'i
My backyard, my respond
sustenance. Should I cut d
rus trees as well?

f A

How is Your
Legal Health?
(Part II)
WILLS AND ESTATE
PLANNING
An indicator of good legal health
usually includes having a valid will
and some basic estate plan. If you
don't have a will, your personal and
real property may not be distributed
in accordance with your desires. In
addition, unnecessary expenses and
taxes may be incurred and certain
family members could possibly in-
herit your assets contrary to your
desires.
A trust is another effective estate
planning document. A trust allows
you to transfer property to your des-
ignated heirs utilizing a successor
trustee to implement your specific
instructions. If you create a trust
in a last will and testament, this is
called a testamentary trust. Another
form of trust is a living trust which is
created by written contract. Living
trusts are very useful estate plan-
ning tools for everyone--not only the
very wealthy. A living trust assists
in the avoidance of probate and will
help in keeping your affairs out of the
public record and private.
It is critical to review your estate
planning documents whenever im-
portant changes in your life occur.


If you marry, move to a new state,
have a child or lose a loved one, an
update of your legal documents may
be necessary. Also, it is an excellent
idea to discuss with your lawyer if
your estate plan is keeping pace with
the value of your property and is up-
dated to address changes in Florida
law and tax laws. Revisions may be
made with the drafting of new docu-
ments or an amendment to existing
documents may be necessary. It is
important to never make a change in
your old will or trust by writing on or
crossing out words or phrases which
you want to eliminate as this may in-
validate your documents.
DIVORCE
A lawyer should be consulted if
your marriage is ending or you are
contemplating ending your marriage.
Issues concerning child custody, fi-
nancial support and a fair division of
the marital property will need to be
addressed. If your spouse threatens
to harass or harm you, hide marital
property or take your children in vio-
lation of your visitation or custody
rights, a lawyer can assist you in
seeking protection against these im-
proper acts of your spouse.

VITA Needs Volunteers
VITA (Volunteer Income Tax
Assistance) Program is currently
recruiting volunteers. VITA is a
national program designed to assist
low- and moderate-income workers
by providing free tax preparation
and ensuring eligible recipients re-
ceive all the tax credits to which they
are entitled, including EITC (Earned
Income Tax Credit). Volunteers are
needed throughout Pinellas County.
By investing a few hours each week
from late January to mid-April,
2009 as a greeter/ screener or tax
preparer, you will help families and
individuals achieve greater economic
security and improve the local econ-
omy. Free tax preparation and tax
credits boost the standard of living
for thousands of local children and
families while bringing millions of
EITC dollars into your community.
Volunteers need to have an interest
in serving the public and proficient
computer skills. Free training is
provided to those willing to volun-
teer. Upon completion of training,
tax preparers will receive IRS certi-
fication.
VITA is offered in Pinellas County
through a partnership between the
Wealth Building Coalition/Pinellas
Prosperity Campaign and the
Internal Revenue Service. Since im-
plementation in 1969, thousands of
volunteers throughout the country
have provided free tax assistance
and prepared millions of U.S. federal
tax returns in VITA. Call 328-0618.

100 Week Countdown to 100 Years!

Gulfport Centennial Countdown Continues!

SIn just 93 weeks, Gulfport will celebratE
the centennial of its incorporation, Octobei
12,1910. We'll be reminding you every weel
with an interesting old photograph fror
the collection of the Historical Museum
See if you can identify the people, places
and above all the decade of each picture a,
it comes along. To make it a little bit of E
challenge, we won't publish the correct cap
tion until the following week.

LAST WEEK'S ANSWER:
Last week's picture showed some of Gulf
port's young men, newly returned fror
World War II, getting together to build E
clubhouse. The framing was made fror
old trolley ties, which were being taken uf
throughout the area, as the streetcar linE
was about to become a thing of the past
The building is now known as the Gulfpori
Yacht Club.
The elegant place above served an important purpose, but what was it, and
where was it located? Answer next week.

Think you know the answer?

Laugh with a Child!
Gulf Coast Community Care needs
volunteers age 30 and older for its
mentoring program. Volunteers are
matched with children who need a
positive adult role model. Many of
the children are in foster care or live
with a single parent who is going to
school and working. There is a need


for volunteers for children of all
ages.
Volunteers give the gift of time
to one child and are provided social
events and support by agency staff.
No experience is necessary. There
are no costs. Volunteers spend a few
hours a week in simple activities such
as reading, fishing, baking, teaching
a craft or visiting a park with a
child. We have children throughout
Pinellas waiting for mentors!
To learn how you can make a
lasting difference in the life of a child,

Drive Someone Happy
Transportation is one of the biggest
challenges for seniors. Becoming
a passenger rather than a driver


can be difficult for older drivers
and their families. Many Pinellas
County seniors are living alone and
are too frail to shop or drive to a
medical appointment. Now seniors
who can no longer drive can get easy
access to transportation through the
Neighborly Care Network EZride
program.

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 (donations appreciated). 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.
A sitting and walking meditation
workshop is held on Saturdays from
11 a.m. to 12, and a yoga class in
held on Sundays from 5-6 p.m. Call
322-2899 for more details or visit

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.
