Gulfport Proposes Rate
Hikes for Water/Sewer
By Greg Stemm
The city of Gulfport proposed a rate hike
of 7 75 percent for water and 2232 percent
for sewer at a council workshop held last
Gulfport purchases its water and sewer
treatment fromthe cityof St Petersburg In
the past several years when St Petersburg
has raised it's rates, Gulfport has not fully
passed along the cost to its residents, opting
instead to draw on reserves to make up
the difference By contract, Gulfport may
not charge its residents less than what St
Petersburg charges its customers
Dan Carpenter, administrative services
director, told council that the proposedrate
hikes will put Gulfport residents paying
about 5 percent more than St Petersburg
See Water, page 5

Water, from front page
He said that the additional amount
was necessary in case St. Petersburg's
rates are higher than expected next
Currently, Gulfport charges the
lowest amount of any city in Pinellas
County for water and sewer. The
proposed rate hike would put Gulfport
in the middle of rates countywide.
On an average bill where a resident
uses 4,000 gallons of water, the
bill would increase from $60.64 to
If the rate hike is passed it will
generate an additional $168,000 in
revenue from water and an additional
$307,000 in revenue from sewage for
the city's utility fund.
The current contract for water and
sewer from St. Petersburg expires in
Before passage, the rate hikes would
need to go through two readings and
public hearings before council.

"Seven Year Itch"
Coming to Gulfport
Island Community Theatre will
present the comedy "The Seven
Year Itch" from February 5-22 at
The Catherine Hickman Theater,
located at the intersection of Beach
Boulevard and 26 Avenue S. in the
arts district of Gulfport.
Like many other Manhattan

husbands, Richard Sherman sends
his wife and son to the country for
the summer, while he stays behind
to toil. Though reveling in temporary
bachelor freedom of lifestyle,
he's resolved not to carouse and
philander like some others. But his
overactive, vivid imagination goes
into hyper drive when a delightfully
unconventional, voluptuous blonde
moves in upstairs.

Band will present a free concert in the
Life Enrichment Center Auditorium
at Pasadena Community Church on
February 5 at 7 30 p m The concert
features music by popular American
composer Leroy Anderson
Max Millspaugh, Musical Director

known examples of Anderson's
distinctive composition style"
Millspaugh noted that Anderson
wrote nearly all of his pieces for
orchestra, then transcribed most
of them himself for band "Leroy
Anderson is considered by many to
be one of America's four greatest 20th
century composers of instrumental
music alongside George Gershwin,
Aaron Copeland, and Charles Ives
The concert commemorates the 100th
anniversary of Anderson's birth,"
Millspaugh concluded
A community relations initiative

of the City of South Pasadena and
the City's Cultural Arts Council,
the band has 50 members and
presents a popular concert series

Elephants in the Room
In January Pasadena Community
Church will launch a daring sermon
series called "Elephants in the
Room." An "elephant in the room" is
something big, real, and impossible
to ignore, but we pretend it is not
there because to talk about it would
be painful or embarrassing. Sound
familiar? Sometimes we get so
concerned about appearing like we
have it all together that we will not
name our elephants even though they
may be crushing the life out of us.
It is a lot like "The Emperor's New
Clothes." The emperor's naked but
nobody wants to be the first to say so.
Beginning Sunday, January 4 at both
9 a.m. Direct Connection Modern
worship and 11 a.m. Traditional
worship, Rev. Charley Reeb is going
to be bold and name these elephants
and offer ways to move them out of
our lives. The "elephants" that he
will be naming are: Sexploitation (I
Can't Get Enough), Abuse (I Have
a Secret), and Resentment (I Won't
Forgive.) The Sanctuary of Pasadena
Community Church is located at
Pasadena Avenue at Second Avenue
S. Contact the church office at 381-
2499 for further information.

By Leg Clfo Ho wil yo spndth .dy

Bob Gilberti, part-time Gulfport/
Maine resident: "I'm going to
watch the game, even though my
team isn't in it this year. I'm a New
England fan andbecause TomBrady
got hurt in the very beginning of the
season, my enthusiasm for the game
has been somewhat dampened all
season. But I will root for the Steel-
ers for this Super Bowl because of
Terry Bradshaw. He was one crazy
player and I used to love watching
his antics on and off the field. I al-
ways enjoyed his style of play; that
always made me appreciate the
Steelers. Pittsburgh is a good team;
they're closer to New England than
Arizona is and I don't really have
any connection with them. I'm an
AFC fan and the Steelers are a good
representation of the AFC. But both
Pittsburgh and Arizona did well this
season and I think they belong here
in the Super Bowl."

WE GO THERE! 321-6965

Lorinda VanDreisen, Gulfport: "I
am rooting for the Cardinals. I used
to live in Arizona before moving to
Gulfport in 1991. I can't afford to go
to the game, so my boyfriend and
I are throwing a big party! I own
Total Body Care and have these sa-
lon chairs that can go up and down
with a foot pump, like a hair salon
has. We decided to set up the couch,
then the chairs, like tiers, along with
some bleachers we're going to build,
so that everyone has a great seat in
front of our huge 52 inch flat screen.
It will almost be like being in the sta-
dium. We've invited about 13 people,
mostly neighbors and we're cooking
brisket, wings, potato salad, beans,
veggies and other goodies. This is my
first Super Bowl party and I really
want Arizona to win. Even though
I'm very happy in Gulfport and love
it here, I still kept my old Arizona
license plate and I'm sure I can scare
up some kind of shirt with an Arizona
logo. It should be fun and I'm really
looking forward to Sunday."

Kirt Kleiner, part-time Pitts-
burgh/Gulfport resident: "I am
definitely rootingfor the Steelers, be-
cause I'm from there originally and
we love our football. I own a rental
house here in town and I've rented
it out to some visiting Pittsburgh
friends of mine, at a special price,
I might add! I gave them a great
deal. I don't get to go to the games
because I'm always here in Gulfport
from October to February, but I al-
ways watch them on TV. Of course,
with the way they've been playing
the last couple of weeks, they can't
be stopped! There are many more
Pittsburgh fans than Arizona here.
Arizona fans just aren't used to com-
ing here to Florida, whereas Pitts-
burgh people come here all the time.
I mean, Pittsburgh is cold and peo-
ple visit here to get out of the cold.
Arizona fans don't visit Florida; they
already live in a warm place! I think
that the Steelers have the momen-
tum and a greater amount of fan
base here. I think that's what will
carry them to victory."

Debbie Thompson, Gulfport: "I am rooting for the underdog Cardinals al-
though I really love the Steelers. It should be a really good game! It's been 49
years or something like that since the Cardinals have won a Championship. I
don't think they ever believed they would get this far. I never followed them
much. But I do like the coach. I think he has great enthusiasm; he gives players
and the fans all the credit. It's really refreshing to see that kind of selflessness,
especially in such a tough sport like football. And the Steelers have already been
here before, so that's why I'd like to see the Cardinals win this one. Let them
get a chance to win the big one! I'll probably watch the game with friends at a

Getting Down to
What Really Matters
Dear Editor: I would like to ad-
dress all the candidates who will par-
ticipate in the election on March 10
2009. As a registered voter my con-
cerns are more far reaching than the
topics in the Gabber.
The subject of live aboard boaters
should be tabled. There are many,
many rental units and homes on the
market today. These should be a pri-
ority. Empty houses and apartments
can become a blight on our city.
Your efforts should be focused on
getting a a grocery store to replace
Winn Dixie. Encourage small busi-
nesses that are useful to the commu-
nity. Did you ever think about offer-
ing an incentive to draw merchants
to Gulfport? Not everyone can afford
to shop downtown Gulfport or eat out
in these stressful times. Many of our
neighbors have lost their jobs.

As for the police department, how
many long term officers do we em-
ploy? Do they use Gulfport as ajump-
ing off point to get experience, then
move on? Our city, state and govern-
ment taxes are sometimes more than
the working class can bear. Not a
good time to promote new taxes.
I must say at times I am ashamed
of our city council members who pick
at each other like children. Yes, we
are not all alike and we do have our
own ideas, but first and foremost you
where elected to serve the people of
Gulfport. I also do not like the special
interest groups that are unfair to our
council members. They do not work
to improve our community, but put
forth their own righteous ideas. To
these people I suggest that you run

Winter Wonders
By Mary Marsh
Members of The Art Guild of Trea-
sure Island open a new show at the
Community Center through March
5. Today I introduce the works of
Eleanor Adamo, Linda Critser and
Margo Morris and save those of
Sally Pierce and Gay Womack for
next time.
Always versatile, Eleanor Adamo
brings her bold "Anthuriam", rest-
ful "The Old Mill Bridge", and a
mosaic of autumn leaves in "For-
est Floor." But her strong, colorful
"Minarets," suggesting the famil-
iar University of Tampa, is truly
eye catching.
Newcomer to the Center Show,
Linda Critser, shares her deli-
cate works: "My First Watercolor
Painting", "Double Day Lilies",
and "Split Rock Lighthouse". In
"Dia de Los Muertos" Linda uses
figures and strong colors to create
Margo Morris shows her talent
and training in two landscapes,
"Toronto From The Island" and
her "Sun-Warmed" harbor scene.
Her subtle "After Degas--Dance
Class" in colored pencil contrasts
with her colorful whimsy, "In The
Closet" jam packed with dresses,
hats. pillows and blankets.

located on 106th Avenue just east

mPoints On Pets

By Matthew Margolis

Matty's Big Adventure
Every so often those of us in the
business of teaching get a reminder
that we still have plenty to learn. For
me, that memo came this last holiday
season, as I trudged through two feet
of snow.
A former client of mine got in touch
with me and asked whether I was
available to fly to the Washington
area the week of Christmas and do
some continuing training with her
two German shepherds I had worked
with once before. Oh, and she had
a brand-new 6-month-old German
shepherd puppy who needed some
training, too.
I'm originally from New York, but
have lived my last few decades in
Cahfornia, where the weather is
beautiful but rarely a winter wonder-
land. The idea of a week with three

German shepherds and a snowy vis-
ta appealed to me, so I shuffled some
things around to make it work.
Upon my arrival, I famliarized my-
self with the layout of the house and
property, and mentally prepared for
my mission: It was to be me and the
dogs alone for a week in a house set
back a good snow-covered mile from
the nearest road. The problem with
the two older dogs -- both 6 years old
and female -- was their aggression to-
ward each other. The pup displayed
no signs of this inclination, and the
owner wanted to keep it that way.
The first couple of days went great.
No fights. No trouble. All three dogs
responded to my instruction hke
the intelligent creatures they are.
I kicked back with a cup of hot tea
and basked in the glory of a job well
On the third morning the older dogs
needed to go outside. As the three


of us stumbled around in the bitter-
cold darkness of 4:30 a.m., a dogfight
broke out that would make the LA
riots look like civil disobedience. Two
fierce German shepherds going at it
like wild ammals. And me, trying to
keep my balance and separate them
in two feet of snow.
I'm no stranger to breaking up dog-
fights, it's part of my training and ex-
pertise. But this was something else.
It was dangerous, and I was scared.
While making another attempt to
pull them apart, I fell flat on myback.
In that moment, I remember lying in
the dark, the sting of snowflakes on
my face, the sound of raw violence
above my head, thinking: This is it.
Here lies Matty. Dog trainer. Dog
lover. Dog food.
Miraculously, I was able to get my-
self up, pull them apart and calm ev-
eryone down. Well, almost everyone.
Once we were back inside, I stretched
out on the bed in preparation for the
oncoming cardiac arrest. And as I lay
supine, certain of its imminence, the
phone rang: The owner decided she
wanted to spend Christmas with the
puppy. Would I mind walking the
pup to the roadside so she could have
a friend swing by and grab him?
The puppy? Where was the puppy?
After a short search I found young
Shep in the mudroom, along with my
snow boots -- now soleless, tongue-
less, laceless and toeless. And for
dessert, he'd eaten his leash. I could
only stare at him, my mouth agape.
He stared back at me as if to say,
"See, Uncle Matty. You don't know
I called my wife: "You won't believe
what happened. The dog ate my
She said, "That's the kind of stuff
that makes people call you."
She was right. While I was wrestling
with two out-of-control canines, the
third dog I was training was feasting
on my boots. This lesson had ample
time to sink in as I schlepped the
young pup the snow-covered mile to
the road, in my slightly worn shoes.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). It
seems every day is an effort to get
organized, and yet things still are
out of place. Help is on its way in the
form of a system, person or desire to
purge with gusto. Here's a guiding
principle: Focus more on what you
have than on what you want. All of
the work will pay off, and by Saturday
you'll be satisfied.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You
have an inkling that you had a
hand in creating the problem that's
been irking you so. Of course, and
you're right. Maybe you needed the
challenge, wanted to test boundaries
or were just in an experimental mood.
Anyway, taking responsibility was
the hardest part and now everything
will be pretty easily solved.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Resolve
to take nothing personally this week
and you will be in a position to joyfully
embrace opportunity. If a friend
doesn't return your call, it's not you.
That person isn't returning anyone's
call, probably due to circumstances
that overwhelm her. Go where the
energy is reciprocated and you will
be successful.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20).
Perhaps the person you were looking
for to fulfill a certain role in your life
was there all along. Consider the
potential usefulness of family and
neighbors and the benefit of doing
projects with people you know well,
as opposed to perfect strangers who
have the so-called credentials. Trust
accounts for a lot.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). To
have someone to watch over you
may seem romantic. However, self-
sufficiency is what makes life truly
wonderful. Long ago, you decided to
co-manage your life with the forces of
the universe instead of relying on a
person, corporation or government.
Now you're reinforcing that decision
with action.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Your

turn to be in charge is coming. This
week it may seem hard to step aside,
listen and learn, especially when the
person delivering information seems
inexperienced. However, there are
priceless nuggets of wisdom in the
exercise of humility, which you'll
later be able to apply in a practical
and lucrative way.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Fashion
is fickle, and you are busy updating
yours, ousting the old. Others you
know are doing the same. Luckily
your friends go deeper than a fashion
statement. On Thursday, call the one
you're not so sure about and you're
likely to find out that you're still very
much "in," though the relationship
needs freshening up.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22).
Forgiveness is a healthy habit. This
week you open up and let the beautiful
yellow sun thaw a little frozen spot
in your heart. It's likely that whoever
hurt you didn't even realize what
was going on. Once you forgive, the
other person will instinctively feel
like doing something nice for you,
and they won't even know why.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). This is
your week to thoroughly understand
the way things add up in your life.
The slightest change in the way you
keep track of your work and results
will affect you profoundly. Like a
person who counts calories for the
first time, some of the numbers will
be eye-opening. Make new plans
based on the data you collect.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). It's
easy for you to be kind and generous,
though it does help when the person
you are being generous toward is
appreciative and tells you (and
everyone else who will listen) how
great you are. This week it will be a
powerful and lucky move to do secret
good for others. Give generously and
don't tell a soul.
21). Each day of this week is better
than the last, though appearances


th abris vryhre2166

sometimes indicate otherwise. Some
improvements are immeasurable or
look a lot more like deterioration.
The universe is progressing
unpredictably, but know that it is
progressing in the best possible way
for you and all.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19).
Your talent is unique and so is the
way you produce results. A clock-
watching friend makes you ultra-
aware of the amount of unproductive
time being "wasted" in pursuit of a
project. You might remind this person
that sometimes the best ideas come
while you are on a so-called break.
This Week's Birthdays: You are
anchored in a stable worldview.
Because you see things as they really
are, you're able to mine the best out
of each situation. Your ego gets out
of the way, and success is reached
more readily. You care less about
satisfying your needs and more
about the needs of others, and so are
rewarded with gratitude and support,
both emotional and financial. April is
especially beneficial to your love life.
There's a spotlight on your talent in
May. Family unification happens in

By Greg Stemm

When I went to go visit Mac
Perry and learn more about him
as an artist I had no idea what a
remarkable person I was about to
meet I had anticipated loolnng at
some great artwork, and that was
there, but Perry is also about music,
landscaping, history, religion, and
authoring books on a wide variety of
Perry has been dubbed a
"Renaissane Man" He is the
author of eight books and over
a thousand magazine and news
articles on Florida landscapes and
the Phistoric Indians of Florida He
is a singer ong writer performing on
bamboo flutes, guitar, harp and vbes
Mac holds three college degrees and
is an avocational archaeologist active
on the lecture circuit He is also the
owner/president of a Horticultural
Pest Control Corporation i the
Tampa Bay area
Mac began painting in college in
1968 when he admire but couldn't
afford the art of local painters He
studied painting, sculpturing, and
landscape horticulture at Virginia
Tech, did graduate studies i art at
the University of South Florida, and
studied privately for many years
Macs award winning acrylic
paintings depicting famous Florida
and historic homes, street scenes
and actyscapes, nd beautiful

He says his favorite works are

He has a huge deck where he and
his wife and grandchildren regularly

people He told me he likes to have
a garden with paths that force the
person visiting to make decisions
"Every path has works in it where
the participant must decide which

who visit to have a participatory

Mac's house sits atop a thousand

explains that the mound is not a

can learn about the daily lives of the
Indians from these artifacts

This N' That in South Pasadena
By Sibylle Stajich
Eating Healthy for 2009
Nancy Thomas, Registered Dietician of Palms of Pasadena Hospital, gave
a lecture about "Reducing Stroke Risks with a Healthy Diet" on January
20. A packed Boca Clega Room gave proof how interested everyone was to
learn more about nutrition. Ms. Thomas stated that it was very important to
keep blood pressure under control as well as maintaining good body weight,
lowering lipid levels (cholesterol) and reducing alcohol consumption. It
is important that blood pressure be kept well under control and a healthy
pressure is 120/80. Keeping salt/sodium to 2300 mg daily, which would be
equal to about 1 teaspoon of salt, eating potassium rich foods and reducing
weight if one is overweight is recommended to reduce blood pressure. Also,
get more potassium with a balanced diet and reduce types of fats. Increase
fiber intakes such as whole wheat products, fruits, vegetables, oatmeal, etc.
and try to maintain healthy weight by getting at least 30 minutes daily
exercise such as walking, swimming, biking and move around as much as
you can. Alcohol also should be consumed in moderation. Women, no more
than one drink per day, men no more than two drinks. Be sure and read all
nutrition labels very carefully and find out which foods are good sources of
fiber, calcium, iron and vitamin C. In other words, one shouldbecome a smart
shopper reading food labels to find out more about the foods. Search for low
sodium and low in saturated fat and transfat foods. If you are watching your
eight, look for how many calories are in a single serving. Saturated fat and
transfat as well as sodium are linked to an increased risk of heart disease.
Eat more fruits and vegetables and fiber as well as vitamins A and C. Select
whole grain breads, cereals, rice and pasta.
Band Concert
The South Pasadena Community Band will present an outdoor concert in
the Life Enrichment Center Auditorium at Pasadena Commumty Church at
7:30 p.m. on February 5. The concert features music by popular American
composer Leroy Anderson. Free.

By Mary Hunt

Give the Kids Roots
and Wings
I recently learned a new word
"Adultolescence" describes the five
years of some people's lives follow-
ing college Not teens but not inde-
pendent adults, either, these are
young people who find themselves
still financially dependent on their
parents I only tell you this to relieve
some of the shock should your semi-
adult children boomerang back into
your nest at just about the time you
get used to them being on their own
Could happen
According to CollegeGrad com, 77
percent of college graduates from the
class of 2008 moved back home with
their parents after graduation This
is up from 73 percent m 2007 and
67 percent m 2006 They don't move
home because they miss mom's cook-
ing It's money (or the lack thereof,
caused by lugh expenses and low im-
come) that dnves them back to the
I think this has a lot to do with
expectations and attitudes of en-
titlement I know of more than one
20-somethmg who was rudely awak-
ened to the fact that $85,000 jobs
are not hanging around waitmg for
bnght young grads to show up, and
new-car payments are neither low
nor easy

As the mom of two finally adult
sons, I do have some experience here
Both of our boys lived at home while
in college and stayed a few years
beyond Neither had any debt com-
ing out of college I shudder to think
that if they each had had the current
average of nearly $20,000 m student
loans and $4,000 m credit card debt,
they still might be with us Instead,
they paid rent to live at home (a good
way to zap attitudes of entitlement)
and became voracious savers
Theirfrugalitypad off, too With the
money he saved, our elder son went
straight from living at home to being
a homeowner at age 25 His younger
brother shared an apartment with
friends for a few years and then, at
age 27, bought a home, as well Both

of them bought in anythmng-but-cheap
Orange County, Calihf
Have you ever thought about what
you can do now to head off a pro-
tracted period of adultolescence m
your kids9 Here's an idea for start-
ers If they can make it through col-
lege without a load of debt (student
loans, car loans or credit card debt),
they'll get a head start on making it
out on their own Here are some op-
tions to consider community college,
online universities, the military, lv-
ing at home while working and going
to school, scholarships and employer-
reimbursed tmuton plans
I've heard that the job of parentmg
is to give kids both roots and wings --
roots so they willfeel secure and wings
so they'll be able to fly away when the
time is right Start early by teaching
them the secrets of debt-proof living,
and you'll improve the chances that
they will be able to take off and soar
high and not require a return flight

No Shows
Maybe it's stating the obvious, but
a leading child expert has once again
issued a warning that permitting chil-
dren under 2 years old to watch TV
probably does more harm than good.
Dimitri A. Christakis of the Seattle
Children's Research Institute and the
University of Washington reviewed
78 studies published over the past 25
years that examined the relationship
between television and very young
"No studies to date have demon-
strated benefits associated with early
infant TV viewing," Christakis said.
"The weight of existing evidence sug-
gests the potential for harm."
The biggest problem is parents. Al-
though the American Academy of Pe-
diatrics and others actively discour-
age TV viewing in the first two years
of life, surveys indicate just 6 percent
of parents say they're aware of the ad-
Indeed, a 2007 study found that 29
percent of parents let their infants
watch TV because they thought it was
"good for their brains." In fact, numer-
ous studies have shown TV watching
can delay or alter infants' develop-
ment of language acquisition, cogni-
tive skills and attention capacity.

Christakis singled out TV programs
and DVDs that claim to benefit in-
fants. Such claims, he said, are com-
pletely without scientific proof.

expected disease, from the aphorism:

One in 20 Americans will experience
depression during any given year. De-
pression is twice as common in wom-
en, but bipolar disorder strikes both
sexes equally.

to hang him would cure almost any-

ResponseLink: Safety. Independence. Peace of Mind

By Greg Stemm

"It's really amazing how much peace
of mind a httle button can generate,"
said David Lemke, area manager for
ResponseLmk The ResponseLINK
medical alert system offers 24 hour
medical emergency motoring and
response using advanced two-way
communication that has superior
range and smart medical alert
"Our system is perfect for semors
or others who hve alone," said Lemke
"It canprovide peace of mind, not only
for the chent, but for those who care
for them "
"One of the best things about our
system is that we're based nght here
m Pmellas County," said Lemke
"We started here 14 years ago and
now we have over 60,000 subscribers
nationwide The people who come to
explain the system when we install it
are all local representatives and even
our call center is based nght here in
The ResponseLink system includes
a small lightweight pendant with a
single button on it that a chent can
wear around their neck or there wrist
Lemke says that because 45 percent
of falls take place in bathrooms, the
device is completely waterproof In
addition, there is a base unt which
allows cents to be in touch with
ResponseLink representative who are
on duty 24 hours a day, seven days a
'The base unt has a military grade
hstening device We can hear a chent
who whispers within 2500 feet of the
unt,," said Lemke "That means, if
they push there button we can hear
them anywhere in their home and
even outside within close range to the
"ResponseLnk maintains a hst of
friends and relatives and their contact
formationn" saidLemke "Sometumes
a chent falls and isn't really injured
They don't need an ambulance, just a
handup ResponseLmkcancall one of
these contacts and our representative
stays on the line with the chent until
help arrives If a chent is transported
to a hospital, ResponseLink will
call contacts or loved ones to advise
them "

number one reason why seniors are
readmitted to a hospital
"Often it's hard for senors to
remember to take medication or they
take it and then forget they have
taken a dose and take it again," said
Lemke "ResponseLmk can help in a
number of ways We can call a chent
to remind them to take medications
up to 16 times a day We can also call
cents to remind them to eat, check
blood sugar or just make sure that
they are OK"
Lemke also demonstrated another
device that ResponseLink offers
which can hold up to a 30 day supply
of medication, dispensing it at pre-
prescribedtimes and alertingthechent
that it is time to take their dosage If
a chent doesn't immediately respond,
a ResponseLink representative calls
them to make sure they take their
Couples can benefit from
ResponseLmk as well as those living
alone Asecondbuttondevices onlyan
additional $10 The cost of the entire
system starts at just $35, making it
much more affordable than moving a
chent into an assisted giving facility
The round the clock monitoring may
also reduce the number of times a
home health aid or nurse is required to
visit "We can also provide a lock box
that locks onto the front door or porch
This way, when the help arrives they
can get into the house easily, without
breaking down a door or struggling to
Pad Acraerem ent-

find the key hidden under the rock,"
Lemke adds
The unt works anywhere in North
America (including Canada) and a
chent may take it with them if they
are a snowbird who spends part of
their tie here in Florida and part of
the time in a northern location The
company offers same day service for
set up and a representative comes to
your home and gives you free training
on the devices and how to use them
Lemke notes that ResponseLink is
offering free installation (a $50 dollar
value) for those who purchase the unt
before the end of February
Lemke has been in medical sales
for many years, in Chicago, Ohio and
now in Florida He and his fiance',
Lacey hve in Gulfport with their two
dogs Cella and Zorro Both are active
sailors, own a 27 foot sail boat and
are members of the Boca Clega Yacht

Top Ten Reasons to See Kiss Me Kate

By Cathy Salustri

I can only tell you this about St Pete Little Theatre's
(SPLT) Kiss Me Kate Rarely, if ever, will you have a
chance to see such an exceptional show at a community
Really, that's my entire review I loved almost every-
thing about this show Go see for yourself

My editor tells me I will not get paid for a four-sentence
theatre revew, so here's the top 10 reasons to go see the
10 The story As a revival of a musical based loosely
on Shakespeare's Taming of the Shrew and written by
Cole Porter, Kiss Me Kate makes for the ultimate Shake-
speare Light (all of the plot and none of the iambic pen-
9 The sets Michael DuMouchel designed the sets on a
tight schedule but no one m the audience can tell, they're
resplendent, well-decorated and thoughtfully done The
set changes happen quickly and easily
8 The choreography and the dancers Nancy Smith
teaches dance at St Petersburg College and the dancers
didn't come from her classes, but they easily could have
With the bllhant costumes swirhng about onstage it felt
more like watclung an enchanted painting than dancing,
especially during Too Darn Hot and Cantiamo D'Amore
7 It's worth the money For the price of a ticket you get
three hours of singing and dancing and comedy SPLT's
putting on a revival of Kiss Me Kate, so if you saw it
years ago you shouldn't expect the same show
6 Vimny and Joey The two muddhng gangsters are the
jokers of an already very funny musical, and they serve
as a special sort of commc relief One of them (I honestly
don't know who was who) didn't sing as strongly as the
other, but it doesn't matter because they created such
endearing characters
5 Director Rand Smith When I heard SPLT asked
Smith to direct Kiss Me Kate I couldn't wait to see it I
worked with him about five years ago and his acting so
impressed me that I wanted to see if his directmg held
up to my lugh opinion It does The cast of 24 could not
have possibly all brought the same amount of talent to
their respective roles, but Smith bnngs them all to the
same high level onstage At no point do you think, "Gosh,
that scene would have been fantastic if only so-and-so
had been better," because you're pretty much thinking,
"Wow, that was fantastic'"
4 Enm Fleming as Paul Fleming's big number, Too
Darn Hot, surpasses the idea of little" theatre Fleming
dehvers a performance any professional theatre compa-
ny in the area would brag about for years
3 Margee Murray as Lois Lane The phrase to describe
this woman is "tnple threat" because she can sing, dance
and act-exceptionally well You almost don't realize
how good she is until the second act dunng Always True

raren ILa-osn ana bil ~ryan~ ellgnt aualences as ne leading
couple in St Pete Little Theatre's Kiss Me Kate
to You m my Fashion, which will blow you away
2 Bill Bryant and Karen Lalosh as Fred Graham and
LllhVanessi Too often, especially at smallerprofessional
theatres and many commumty theatres, one of the leads
nails the role while the other never seems to get there
Both Bryant and Lalosh completely engage the audience
with convincing and sympathetic performances By the
end of the show you're just happy because one of them
walks on stage
1 I really, really tried to find something to criticize
There wasn't much The best I could come up with was
that General Hamson Howell (Stephen Bell) dehvered a
great performance but didn't have a blow-me-away voice
and the orchestra played way too loudly for some of the
singers Neither of those things would stop me from go-
ing back to see the show, and they certainly shouldn't
stop you from going to see it This show deserves a sold-
out crowd every might for the next two weekends

Don't Judge Program
By What's on TV
Q I read with interest your columns
about reforming Socal Security I'll
tell you what's wrong with the system
it's all the people who ae getting
disability benefits but don't deserve
them I saw a couple on the "Judge
Judy" television show who said
they were both collecting disability
benefits rom Social Security, et they
were making lots of money under the
table Get rid of deadbeats like them
and you would save enough money
to keep Social Security going or the
next 100 years'
A Oh, if only it were that simple
But maybe you've hit on something
Instead of blue ribbon committees
of economists and policy planners
to study Social Security funding

issues as most presidents in the
past couple decades have appointed
maybe Barack Obama should just
make Judge Judy his Social Security
Czar and put her in charge of fixing
the system so it will be ready for
future generations of retirees
But seriously, folks
When you're dealing with a giant
government operation like the
Social Security disability program.
one that pays billions of dollars in
benefits every month to millions
of Americans, of course there are
going to be a few bad apples who slip
through the cracks and cheat the
system And some of them could even
be dumb enough to go on a nationally
syndicated TV show and reveal their
dirty little secret
But I hope you don't think they
are typical of the millions of men,
women and children who have severe
physical and mental impairments


and e re eceivng Social Security
disability benefits
As I said, a program as large as
Social Security is bound to have a
small amount of fraud and abuse
associated with it If you Imow of
someone you think is cheating the
system, call the Social Security
Administration's raud hotline at
800 269 0271 Or visit SSA's webste
at www socialsecurty gov and click
on "Report Fraud Waste or Abuse"
right onthe homepage
But I can tell you that a far more
common complaint I get about the
Social Security disability program is
exactly the opposite of the problem
you allege Insteado a program that's
wasting money oneon deadbeats" as you
believe, many. many more people
write to me to say that they can't
believe how stringent the disability
benefit eligibility rules ae
A very common letter I get goes
something like this I have this
problem (insert nane of impairment
here) and I also have that problem
(insert nane of another impairment
here), and I have been trying to get
on Social Security disability r ears
and I keep getting turned down I
guess you hae to be half dead to get
Social Security disability"
So, some people, like you, tell me the
Social Security disability program
is rife with deadbeats and ne'er do
wells cheating the system While
other people tell me that you have
to have one foot in the grave to get
benefits in the first place
When you hear such divergent
views, you might guess that the truth
lies somewhere in between And Ican
tell you, from my years of experience
working for the Social Security
Administration, that s indeed the
When Congress set up the Social
Security disability program in the
1950s, they established a very strict
legal definition of disability To this
day, the law says that to qualify for
disability benefits, you must provide
substantial medical evidence that
proves you have a severe mental or
physical impairment that will keep
you from working for at least a year
That doesn't mean you have to have
one foot in the grave And it certainly
doesn't mean that benefits mae handed
out wiy ll mll to dedbeats

Boca Ciega Men's Basketball

Falls to Rival Lakewood, 57-54

--- -

... ---- - -- -

By Leigh Clifton
In what has been billed as one of
the most hotly contested rivalries
between two schools i the state of
Florida Lakewood High's Varsity
basketball team held on to a slim
lead to beat Boca Clega High 57 54
Tuesday night The gane, played
at Lakewood High was packed
with students and fans from both
schools, the excess overflowing into

the corners of the gymnasium and
all around the perimeter of the floor
An abundance of St Pete Police kept
the rowdies from disrupting the
game, although some good nature
ribbing on both sides started even
before the game got underway
The Bogey Pirates were lead by
returning senior Richard Prince,
who had been sidelined since
Thanksgiving by surgery for a

first game back and the game was

Regular starters Bryoe Mosle ,

Prince took control of the game
and kept Bogey up by a few points.
see sawing for the lead most of the
first half But the second half soon
became a struggle for the Pirates,
who had multiple forced turnovers
and missed opportunities at free
throws Lakewood came out stmrng
after a half time break and started
pushing back Hard
"The third quarter was a total
debacle," said Head Coach Randy
Human "We just couldn't execute
andget it done We missedthree out
of four shots at a time and the game
was very physical for both teams
We really wanted this win and we
fought hard, we ust couldn't get it
done like we wanted "
There were some bright spots for
the Pirates, however #12, Kenny
"Speedy" Smith, had a great game
and showed a lot of hustle, heart
and determination to get the bell
the hoop and to big man #32 Julius
Forte Although Forte ws battling
the flu ,which made it tough to go
hard at the basket, he came up with
a key snag after grappling on the
floor with two Lakewood players,
smashing into the corner before
getting the ball out to one of Bogey's
best shooters, Myron Dempsey, who
dumpedit in or two Kem Mckellar
also had an outstanding game and
was "r Hustle", keeping the bell
moving down the court The final
seconds saw a mad physical scramble
as Bogey had a shot to tie But
Lakewood kept the ball high i the
court and Bogey could only force a
personal foul that allowed Lakewood
to extend the lead with free throws,
rendering them untouchable in
scoring at that point
The Pirates kept it close the whole
game, the fans from both teams were
trading loud insults to give them
incentive But even the strongest
verbal abuse couldn't spark the
16 4 Pirates enough to get this one
done They played well and fought
hard but m the end, the W went into
Lakewood High's column
