A Valentine's Day For All Ages


Varsity Pirates
Pull off Dramatic
Overtime Win

Game high scorer Myron Dempsey goes
airborne for two.

Who says Valentine's Day is only
for the girls? The Bogie Pirates Boys
Varsity basketball team pulled off the
sweetest win of their season Saturday
night, in overtime, no less, beating
arch-rival Lakewood High to clinch the
5A District 11 Championship, 72-69.
Bogie hasn't beaten Lakewood in more
than five seasons, so this victory was
especially rewarding for the team and
Coach Shuman. Even the cheerleaders,
who aren't allowed to cheer on the floor
at the Bogie /Lakewood games because
of their intense smack talk, um,
cheering style and unique manner
See Big Win, page 47


By Cathy Salustri
The Gulfport Casino sold
out its Valentine's Day Dance
Saturday night. The packed
house danced to the Gulf Bay
Big Band, an 18-piece band the
city hired to entertain the over
300 guests at Saturday night's
events.
Nina Jenkins, 10, and Alex
Maldonado, 11, danced as part
of the Ballroom Bicycle Brigade, a 4-H group of homeschooled students
who dance, Alex said "mostly for fun." On the other end of the spectrum
Marlene Hanks and Patrick Gates, both from St. Petersburg, also enjoyed
the Gulf Bay Big Band, led by Lloyd Johns.

64th Street Park Renamed
By a resolution passed on Tuesday, Gulfport city
council has renamed the city park located at 64th
Street and Gulfport Boulevard to R.W. Caldwell
Park.
"The Caldwell family has been an important part of
Gulfport for decades," said Michael Yakes, mayor. "It
is only fitting that we pay tribute to them in some
way and this is a nice way of doing it."
New signage at the park will cost approximately
$1,000.
A dedication ceremony is scheduled at a yet to be
determined date.

"Ain't Retirement
Grand!" Opens Friday
The Gulfport Community Players
will open a brand new, never-
before-seen revue entitled, "Ain't
Retirement G(i.in.l' on February 20
at the Players' Back Door Theater.
Long-time member, Gil Perlroth,
wrote the play, the lyrics, and the 23
songs included in the play. This play
takes a humorous poke at retirement,
but, in a nice way.
Daniel Harris is the director and
he has a great cast to work with,
including Janice Nipon-Sixt, Cheryl


Moore, Bob Wells and Robert Hines.
This musical revue contains 23
lively songs dealing with pets, early-
bird specials, doctors, exercise, spare
time, single bachelors, etc. Obviously
the play will appeal mostly to the
older generation, but, knowing Gil,
it should have a little appeal to just
about everyone!
Theplaywillrunfor sixperformances
at the Players' Back Door Theater.
Play dates and time are as follows:
February 20, 21, 27 and 28 at 8
p.m., and February 22 and March 1

Audition for "Someone
Who'll Watch Over Me"
The Gulfport Community Players,
in their continuing effort to bring
unusual plays to their audiences, are
happy to announce that auditions
will be held for a powerful drama
by Frank McGuinness. This drama,
entitled "Someone Who'll Watch Over
Me", will be directed by Bill Rucker.
Bill needs three males, ages 30 to 40
for his cast. One male needs to speak
with an Irish accent, another with an
English accent, and the third with an
American accent. Some singing will


be required for the play.
The play is the story of an
Englishman, an Irishman, and an
American who have been taken
captive in the Middle East. They are
chained to a wall in an isolated cell,
victims of political imprisonment,
and powerless to initiate change.
The three rely on each other to avoid
falling victim to the madness of their
plight. The story explores the daily
crisis endured by hostages whose
strength comes from communication,
through humor, wit, and faith.


Auditions will be at 7 p.m. and will
be held on February 23 and 24 at the
Players' Back Door Theater, 4919 17
Avenue S. in Gulfport. The play will
run from April 23 through May 3 at
the Catherine A. Hickman Theater
of Gulfport. All interested people are
urged to try out for a part.
For more information, give
Bill a call at 388-1395, or visit
the Players' website at www.

Fact: 90% of Varcosities are inside the leg and cause
'aching, heavy, tired' legs. Many vein patients have legs
that appear normal on the surface. These varicose veins
are discovered during an ultrasound exam of the veins
done in our office. (Paid by Medicare/ Insurance)
Myths: Vein treatments hurt, need a long recovery, are
usually for women, and are usually 'only cosmetic'.
Facts: Painful vein stripping is old fashioned. The new
laser treatments for failed veins are gentle, painless, done
in the office and require no down time. Half of our
patients are men. 96% of our treatments are 'medically
necessary', not 'cosmetic'. (Paid by Medicare/ Insurance)
Myth: Stockings/ Compression hose and
elevation will fix my legs.
Fact: Hose and elevation only slow the gradual
deterioration of failed veins. Early detection is important!!

Stan Schey, Boat Captain, St. Pete Beach: "I believe in Darwinism, as in survival
of the fittest. Those banks that chose to participate in risky behavior should be allowed
to suffer the consequences of their risk taking. The banks who acted in a responsible,
conservative manner are not in trouble. The money held in deposit in the failing banks
is the money that should be reimbursed by the government to the depositors, because
the government was the one that facilitated the risky business of the failing banks in the
first place, through support of sub-prime loans and mortgage-backed securities. There
was a definite lack of adequate oversight and regulation. The banks were allowed to
i over-leverage with the depositor's money and people were approved for loans they really
couldn't afford so the bank could then sell the mortgages and then lend that money out
tat a much higher percent. They got greedy. The banks that held onto their funds and
invested conservatively are the ones still standing now. The greedy ones deserve to fail;
let's not throw them more money to waste."

Laura Ely, school office administrator, St. Pete: "It's an interesting question be-
cause my husband just lost his job of 10 years at Home Depot; he was laid off and he
was a specialist. Now there are only about six people in his job description to cover all
of Pinellas County, yet the guys in upper management kept their jobs, even though his
was more integral to the company. It doesn't make any sense. I can't stand the banks;
they get so much money from us, with extra charges and fees that don't make any sense.
They nickel and dime you to death. Anyway, they've already been bailed out once- will
this time be beneficial to us at all or will it only just help them again? I bank at one of
the banks that received bail-out money. I haven't noticed any better banking benefits;
nothing's changed for my family and me. I did hear that several of those bailed-out
bankers got raises and bonuses; how does that possibly help us? And they're using our
money! We have four kids and we're just trying to hang on to what we have. We haven't
tried to get any loans for anything and we're afraid to do anything extra. It's really
tough out here and it looks like it's going to get a lot worse."


Shelia and Allen Snayberger, part-time school board worker and marine lift
operator: "I bank for free and Allen is with Bank of America. To us, the banks should
do what they're supposed to do with the money and put it towards lending to those who
need it, not paying their higher-ups. The government should be helping us, the people,
out of the problems we're in; the banks already got what they needed. We need help
with housing and health care. I work two jobs and Allen's hour's got cut so now the
family lost the health care we had under his job. They reduced his hours just enough
so that we weren't eligible for the benefits. He's the only one covered under his policy. I
S guess they thought they could save some money that way. But we have three kids and
one is handicapped, so here we are with no health insurance and can't afford any of the
supplemental kind either. I work for the school board and you have work over five hours
to be eligible for health care. Guess how many hours I have? Five. So instead of giving
the banks more money to waste, let's spend that money to get more jobs available for
the people, because if we don't get this country back working again, there won't be any
money to put in the banks anyway."

Robert Pearsall, Real Estate broker, St. Pete: "No, I don't think the banks should
get more money from the government because they aren't telling us what they're doing
with it. They've stopped lending and they're not being held accountable for the money
they've already received. I don't think that government should be subsidizing private
enterprise and that's what the banking industry is. They should be loaning the bail-out
money they received to create enterprise. But they're not. We don't know what they're
using the taxpayers' money for; they won't disclose where it's going. In my real estate
business, it's now almost impossible to sell vacation properties like condos because the
lending restrictions have become so tightened up. Now, you almost have to pay cash for
the full sale amount. And even if you can get a loan, the down-payment requirements
have been increased so much; it's pricing people right out of the market."

Some Things We Just
Don't Want To Hear
There are some things we just don't
want to hear: The disease is incurable.
The relationship is over. The economy
won't rebound anytime soon.
The dog is aggressive is a big one in
my business.
A firefighter back east called last
week with a real head-scratcher. He
has a 3-year-old Cane Corso, which
is an intelligent and powerful Italian
mastiff breed. He discovered the dog
in an abandoned warehouse a cou-
ple of years ago and decided to give
it a home. When he relocated eight
months ago, the dog suddenly took to
growling. And, no, the story doesn't
end at that.
The fireman took his Cane Corso to
the dog wash in his new hometown,
where a woman oohed and aahed
and asked for permission to pet him.

Initially the man kept her at arm's
length, explaining it really wasn't
safe. But she persisted and asked him
why he had the dog in a public place if
it wasn't safe.
Logical question.
The story ends with this: The man
acquiesced, and the dog bit the wom-
an.
If you follow this column regularly,
you aren't surprised. It happens all
the time. People let love cloud their
sanity: women go back for beating
after beating; men live with belittle-
ment and emasculation; dog owners
tolerate the snarling, snapping, biting
objects of their affection.
I asked the firefighter, "Is the dog
trained?"
"Yes, I'm a trainer."
"I thought you were a firefighter."
"Yeah, but I've had a couple
of dogs, and I trained them, no prob-
lem."
These days, it seems everyone's a

critic, everyone's an economist and
everyone's a dog trainer. But in real-
ity, most of us are amateur experts in
almost everything. Most people don't
know how to cure cancer, the econo-
my or canine aggression -- much less
all three.
What's the difference between an ex-
pert and an amateur?
Dictionaries will tell you money. I
say credentials.
Countless people have paid good
money to noncredentialed, untrained
dog or animal behaviorists, only to be
left with the same problems and more
of them.
The fireman wanted my advice, and
I gave it to him:
His dog suffers from fear-based ag-
gression, for which there is no cure.
He can and should go forward with a
behavior modification plan with the
understanding that his dog will never
be 100 percent safe to unleash on the
world. And under no circumstances
should he take this dog into a public
place knowing, as he does, that it is
an enormous liability. The dog is dan-
gerous and should be kept away from
public places and muzzled when not
secured at home.
But he didn't want to hear it. "I can't
accept this."
Are you surprised?
Truth be told, even if it meant I
were forever out of business, doomed
to begin again in another career, I
do wish everyone were a dog train-
er. That would mean a world full of
happier people and happier dogs. It
would mean close to 5 million fewer
dog bites in this country every year.
It would mean courts unclogged with
the frivolous suits between neigh-
bors and former friends, now at each
other's throats over the barking of a
dog. It would mean more space in our
nation's crowded emergency rooms.
It would mean more service dogs and
fewer dogfights. It would mean safer
kids, stronger families and better
communities.
Besides, I've always wanted to be a
firefighter. And I have put out a few
flames in my day.

SPCA Pet of the Week
SThis beautiful cat has been seeking a special human com-
panion since January. She is friendly and playful, likes her
lap time but will also exercise her 'cat-rights' to be indepen-
dent. At 4 years, Glindia has plenty of cat lives to share. Meet
her at SPCA Tampa Bay, 9099 130 Avenue N., Largo. Visit our
website for more details at SPCATampaBay.org.

Adopt a Fast Friend
This week's greyhound is Starling, a light red fawn color,
who is very sweet and enjoys being the center of attention.
She gets along very well with kids, small dogs, and cats -
wow, what an amicable girl! If you would like to meet Star-
ling or any of our other greyhounds, please call Greyhound
Pets of America, Tampa Bay Chapter on 595-7852 or visit
our website: greyhoundpets.com or come see us at the Tyrone
PetSmart on most Sundays from noon to 2 p.m. Call first if you want to meet
a specific dog.

The Gabber... your community newspaper~I (~~AY)I: Il











t1t 0oroscoDe Guide


PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The
state most people call "being in love"
is more akin to infatuation than it
is to higher states of love. There is
still a value in this type of passion.
Your fascination with one person
makes all of life spring into vivid
declaration. Noticing the grandeur
in one person allows you to see the
beauty in everything.
ARIES (March 21-April 19).
Persistent people will eventually
reach you. But by the time they do,
you're not exactly receptive and may
even feel bad about not responding
earlier. There's a lesson here. It's
more effective to operate on the basis
of attraction than to relentlessly
pursue. Build your offering to the
utmost degree and have confidence
in it.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). It's
easy to see red flags when you're
not that thrilled with a situation to
begin with. It's when you really want
a situation to work that you might
choose to ignore a cosmic warning.
That's why it's helpful to get some
time alone and away from what you
want. Become somewhat detached
before you make decisions.
GEMINI (1 I.iy 21-June 21). Reality
is king. Things are happening as they
are for good reason. Warm up to the
way your life is right now, and figure
out what is good about the present. It
will be easier to create the future you
want when you accept or, better yet,
fall in love with where you are. You
are as powerful as you are positive.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). It
seems that it takes a great number
of positive deeds to tip the fortunes
in your favor now, but your rewards
are coming. While it's fine to do the
right thing, it's even better to do the
crazy-generous thing. Action that is
above and beyond what is expected of
you will unleash a flurry of wonderful
consequences.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You'll be
seeing new faces this week, and


some of them are quite attractive to
you. Recent dramatic events might
be fresh on your mind, but if they
involve anything negative, especially
someone treating you wrong, ditch
the topic for something more cheerful.
You'll be winning people over one
encouraging word at a time.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Stay
alert and you'll be an excellent
steward of your energy and resources.
When someone is about to dump
their problem on you, there will be a
mental warning sound much like the
alarm of a garbage truck backing up.
Say, "I have the greatest confidence
in your ability," and then use any
excuse to split.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). After an
initial struggle with new ideas, you
will probably decide to accept them.
Building on the concepts will come
naturally for you. Your mind, like a
fine cashmere sweater that's been
stretched to new dimensions, will
never be the same. You are growing
in compassion, becoming softer and
more inclusive.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21).
Sir Winston Churchill famously
suggested that we not look too far
ahead, as "the chain of destiny
can only be grasped one link at a
time." This week, dare to buck that
suggestion. Imagine yourself 10 or 20
years from now. This helps you get
perspective on your current direction
to see if it still feels right for you.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21).
Examine your heart as you commit
acts of great generosity. Is this
sharing because you care, or is it
co-dependency? The answer depends
on how you feel after you've done the
giving. If you're depleted, it's not a
good sign. Fulfill your own needs
first and you will be giving from the
abundant joy in your soul.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19).
Look at how often you have started
out with next to nothing and made
something of it. You are more


powerful a creator than you realize.
That's why it's so important to calm
down and become mindful of what
you are secretly wishing. Thursday
and Friday bring equally powerful
co-creators into your life.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You
still feel that someone close to you
doesn't know the real you. Maybe
you haven't been entirely honest,
choosing to be nice when that's not
how you really felt. That only shows
your nobility. So chalk it up to good
manners and wait for your chance to
gently introduce yourself in a more
realistic light.
This Week's Birthdays: You are
in the exact place you need to be in
order to succeed in a difficult arena
this year. You are humble enough to
see that you need to work hard, yet
confident enough to see that, at your
best, you can absolutely outshine the
competition. Next month improves
your love life. Singles make a
connection with someone witty and
fun. Couples add a new exciting
element to their routine. April
features a stylish purchase. There's
an increase in your workload in
June.

SCHNEEGOLD, DOROTHY, 87, of


This N' That in South Pasadena
By Sibylle Stajich
Civic Association
On February 11 at 1:30 p.m. the Civic Association had an interesting and
informative speaker Dr. Daniel J. Mountcastle who spoke about the treat-
ment of veins: swollen, ankles, leg and night cramps, restless leg syndrome
and many other problems. Varicose veins are unhealthy and although 90% are
inside the leg, can lead to tired and heavy legs. By ultrasound, the doctor can
inform the patient what treatment would be advisable. Nine of ten varicose
veins are inside the leg which swell in the day. Years ago veins were stripped,
no more, nowadays, laser or radio frequency is safe, painless and very effec-
tive. Dr. Mountcastle told several stories of patients coming into the office in
tears because they have had so much pain and were helped by having their
veins fixed and the problems were stopped. After two 50/50 drawings, guests
enjoyed coffee and cookies donated by Palms of Pasadena Hospital.
The next Civic event is the lasagna dinner on February 21. See Agnes
(347-5292) for tickets.

grace. For information, call 347-4171.

Teen Council Visits Tallahassee
By Katisha Diab








I 1





The Gulfport Teen Council (President Katisha Diab, Vice President Cameron
Harbachuk, members Darcy Reed, Joseph Reed and chaperone Jeri Reed)
went to Tallahasse February 9 and 10 with the Suncoast League of Cities.
The trip included meeting and having chat sessions with Senator Dennis
Jones and Senator Charlie Justice. The conversations included questions and
discussion about the economy, unfunded mandates and education. The teens
also got a history lesson byvisiting the museum in the old Capitolbuilding. They
found it to be interesting and intriguing to see old court rooms, offices, antique
typewriters and telephones. They learned a little bit on how the Senate and
House of Representatives worked. The teens say "...the trip was very important
for learning new things and also fun...".

Public Comment


& Council Quotes

Excerpts heard at the February 17, 2009
Gulfport city council meeting

"Will the Gabber comment on Attorney Driscoll's infringement on
first amendment protections? Where, other than the public ses-
sion, may a directly affected citizen voice a public concern about
unethical actions by their directly elected officials? Proximity to
an election has no bearing." Al Davis in a note passed to the Gabber
reporter at the meeting. His wife, Cindy Davis, had attempted to make
several comments about concerns she has with actions allegedly taken
by vice mayor Michele King regarding a number of issues. City attorney
Tim Driscoll had cautioned Ms. Davis that public session was not to be
used as a forum for making political statements.

"I will not turn this council chamber into a circus, I have too
much respect for this seat I am holding for that. I won't comment
on her allegations." Vice mayor Michele King when given the oppor-
tunity to respond to the allegations presented by Cindy Davis during the
public session.

"Will the board be empowered to present the people charter
amendments dealing with things such height limitation and
runoff elections? Will the council be open to any ideas the Char-
ter Review Board presents? If the answer is no, then you might as
well wait the rest of the mandatory ten years before you reconvene
the board." -Gulfport citizen Jim Greenwald commenting on the ap-
pointment of a Charter Review committee by council.

"I realize that the renovations being discussed for Gulfport
Boulevard are county issues, but I wanted to bring to the council's
attention that there is discussion about increasing the speed limit
on that street to 45 miles per hour. I am wondering if we can lobby
the county or other officials to make sure we have adequate cross-
walks and other safety precautions for pedestrians if that speed is
going up."- Sam Henderson, resident.

"I want to give the council a heads up that the county is planning
to renegotiate our EMS services contract. The contract doesn't
expire until September 30, 2009, but there are some important
changes that could be part of the negotiations. The county cur-
rently pays about 40 percent of our EMS expenses and they will
be looking to reduce that number, which impacts our budget. I'll
keep you informed on this."- Jim O'Reilly, interim city manger to
council.

"The Gulfport elementary school yard sale was a huge success.
The school raised over $3,000. This was an example of a communi-
ty helping its members and is exactly what Gulfport is all about."
- Mary Stull, council member, Ward 4

"I nominate Pat Dunham to receive the 'Spirit of Gulfport' award
for her efforts in making the elementary school yard sale such a
success."- Michele King, vice mayor. The council expressed a consensus
to give Dunham the award.

By Scott Lafee
A New Wrinkle in
Face-Aging
It's an old adage that if you want to
see what somebody will look like in
old age, check out their parents. But
a new study suggests that even more
than heredity, events in a person's
life strongly influence their appear-
ance overtime.
"A person's heritage may initially
dictate how they age," said Dr. Baha-
man Guyuron, chairman of the de-
partment of plastic surgery at Uni-
versity Hospitals Medical Center in
Arlington Heights, Ill. "But if you in-
troduce certain factors into your life,
you will certainly age faster."
Guyuron and colleagues compared
186 pairs of identical twins, asking
them to provide images and fill out
comprehensive questionnaires about
their lives. An independent panel re-
viewed the images.
The researchers found that twins
who were divorced appeared to be


nearly two years older than siblings
who were married, single or even
widowed. Antidepressant use and
significant weight gain or loss also
made people look older.
Guyuron largely blamed that old
bugaboo, stress, calling it a common
denominator. In the case of antide-
pressants, however, he said the pro-
longed pharmaceutically enforced
relaxation of facial muscles likely
caused the face to sag more and fast-
er than normal.
BODY OF KNOWLEDGE
To survive, adults need to inhale
about 88 pounds of oxygen daily.
OBSERVATION
Part of the secret of success in life is
to eat what you like and let the food
fight it out inside. -- American hu-
morist Mark Twain

GET ME THAT. STAT!
Celiac disease -- a condition char-
acterized by severe, chronic inflam-
mation of the small intestine due to
exposure to gluten proteins found in


grain -- was once believed to be rare.
New data suggests it's significantly
more prevalent, affecting 1 percent
of the U.S. population or up to 1 in
every 133 Americans, according to
University of Michigan research.
BEST MEDICINE
Patient: Doc, you have to help me
out!
Doctor: Certainly, which way did
you come in.
STORIES FOR THE WAITING
ROOM
Next time you're waiting to see your
doctor about hypertension and the
subject of caffeine comes up, remem-
ber this: It's not true that tea has
more caffeine than coffee.
It is true that dry tea leaves contain
a higher proportion of caffeine by
weight than coffee beans. But an av-
erage cup of coffee contains roughly
three times as much caffeine as an
average cup of tea because it takes
more beans to brew it.

PHOBIA OF THE WEEK
Catoptrophobia: fear of mirrors

CURTAIN CALLS
In 2007, 11 people in southeast In-
dia were killed by a migrating herd
of elephants, driven out of their
natural territory by heavy rains and
increased mining operations. The
deaths prompted a team of four jour-
nalists to see for themselves the level
of pachyderm peril.
Elephants, it should be noted, are
not just big, but also fast. In fact,
they are faster than a running man.
The journalists eventually found the
troublesome herd and began taking
photos. The flashes apparently an-
gered the elephants -- they charged.
Remarkably, only one of the four
journalists was trampled to death.
His remains could not be retrieved.

Get Your Bay-
Friendly Boater Kit
Boaters new to boating in Tampa Bay
are being offered free, customized kits
developed by the Tampa Bay Manatee
Awareness Coalition (MAC).
The "Bay-Friendly Boater" program
provides customized information to
boaters new to boating in general, or
just new to boating in Tampa Bay.
The target audience is boaters with
less than two years experience in
the Bay. West Marine and Boat U.S.
have joined the MAC in supporting
this program to provide new boaters
with information about boating safety
and etiquette, as well as important
natural resources such as manatees
and seagrasses.
All kits include a "Rules of the
Road" boat sticker from Boat U.S.,
the Boater's and Angler's Guide to
Tampa Bay, and a free nautical chart
of the bay. Additional information
will be provided based on the boater's
preferred activities (such as fishing or
cruising), and the areas in which they
most frequently boat. Boaters will
be asked to complete a short survey
about their boating patterns and
preferences to ensure they are given
information tailored to their needs.
The MAC, coordinated by the
Tampa Bay Estuary Program, is an
alliance of scientists, environmental
organizations and boating groups
working together to promote safe,
eco-friendly boating in Tampa Bay.
The "Bay-Friendly Boater" campaign
targets new boaters specifically to
ensure they have vital "need-to-know"
information about seagrass beds,


manatee protection areas, restricted
security zones, nesting bird colonies,
recreational fishing limits, and other
aspects of boating in Tampa Bay.
To request a kit, e-mail colleen@
tbep.org or call Colleen Gray at (727)
893-2765.

Big Win, from front page

of intimidation, err, enthusiasm
all but jumped out of the stands in
excitement. The Pirates showed big
hearts and big muscle as both teams
grappled through an aggressive,
physical game that stayed incredibly
close throughout the whole contest;
you can tell these teams just don't like
each other. Elbows were flying and
the ground came up to hit quite a few
of the players on both teams played
hard. The Bogie boys ran their hearts
out up and down the court, trading
basket for basket with Lakewood's
Spartans, keeping the game tight.
With sure ball handling by Kenneth
"Speedy" Smith and game high scorer
Myron Dempsey, the game almost
looked like a sure Bogie win; they
were up by three when the Spartan's
Dominic Lane snagged an errant ball
and tied the game with nine seconds
left, forcing a four minute regulation
overtime. Both teams looked spent
and the tension was crazy. Coach
Shuman's wife Angie had to walk
outside; she was too wound up and
had to calm herself down. The air
inside Lakewood's gym was palpable
and with the clock winding down
and Lakewood up by one, it looked
like they would make Bogie's sweet
dreams into nightmares again.
But in the last few seconds, Myron
Dempsey was fouled; he missed his
free throws....(I foresee many hours
throwing an orange ball at a basket
from a foul line before Regional finals)
but teammate Julius Forte used his
skills to turn his subsequent fouls
into money, nailing the coffin shut
on Lakewood's dreams of Regional
glory.
For "Speedy Smith", this is his
first time in the playoffs and he was
beyond excited.
"We came out and played hard and
I'm really proud that we played so
well," he said, grinning ear to ear.
"It's a great experience to hold that
trophy."
Bogie's next matchup is Thursday
night, at home in Robinson Gym,
against Northport, a team they've
never played before. The game starts
at 7 pm. Come on out, Gulfport, and
show your Pirates some love. Let's
make that gym ROCK on Thursday
night. Don't your 21-6, 5A, District 11
Champs deserve it? You BET they
do! How sweet it is.....

Lady Pirates

in Quest to

Regional Finals
By Leigh Clifton

Boca Ciega's Lady Pirates
are on a mission; play,
win, play, win, play, win.
So far, this simple formula
has been a successful
one as the Lady Pirates
handily beat Northport
last Thursday night, and
continued their roll over
Bradenton Southeast
70-62 this past Tuesday
night. With high scorers
Latavia Dempsey, Tamara
Taylor and Tori Stephens,
and incredible hustle by
Piggy Middlebrooks and
monster rebounding by
Missy Schmidt, the girls Tamara Taylor takes the ball to the hoop.
are working together like
a well-oiled machine, with Coach Will White at the controls steering them
towards that path that is Regional Finals.
Latavia, who has over 1000 points for her career (and she's a SOPHMORE,
people) has been deadly all season at the threes and Tamara and sister Tori
are a lethal combo of speed, precision and grace and had a great game against
Southeast. Tori scored 25, Latavia had 23 and Tamara Taylor added 18.
The Lady Pirates meet their next for Saturday night, 7pm, at home, in the
Robinson Gym. Their opponent was yet to be determined as of this deadline.
But rest assured that Coach White and the gals will be fired up and ready to
shoot some hoops.
Gulfport, come out this week and bring your best Pirate "AARRRGGHH" and
show these kids how proud we all are of them.

Pasadena Pet Motel Individual Attention in a Spa Like Atmosphere


By Greg Stemm

Walking into Pasadena Pet Motel
I'm met by "Jazz" a friendly older
canine who seems to be very much
enjoying her role as front door
"greeter. The atmosphere is relaxed
and casual, and it is clear that the
individual needs of each guest are of
top priority.
Owner Kristen Triplett has been
a veterinary technician for over 20
years, and absolutely lights up when
she talks about the business. You can
tell she loves what she does and the
dogs and cats who are a part of it.
"Dogs are pack animals and we
try and think with a pack mentality
around here," said Kristen. "While
they are under our care, we try and
match your pet with other compatible
dogs for their very own playtime in
the big back yard of the motel."
The Pasadena Pet Motel offers a
full range of services in what Kristen
calls more of "spa like" atmosphere
than that of a kennel. They offer
boarding services, day care, grooming
and training. Boarding and day care
have the option of being socialized or
traditional, and regardless of what
you choose, your dog is guaranteed to
get out at least 4 times a day. Kennels
are indoor and air conditioned, and
private suites are available as well.
Only a certain number of dogs are
taken in to ensure that your dog
will receive the best care possible.
Grooming is unique as well; they
offer blueberry facials, sugar scrubs,
coloring and mud baths all the
same services you can get when you
visit your spa!
And if that isn't enough incentive
for you to stop by and take a look,
another benefit to hoarding your pet
with the Pasadena Pet Motel is that
they do not nickel and dime you for
every little thing in other words,
boarding services are all inclusive!
After five nights, your dirty pouch
will even receive a bath free of
charge (after playing with their best
doggy friends for 5 days they really
need iti)
The Pet Motel is a member of the
American Pet Services Association.
When inspectors come from the
county's animal control services they
regularly say that the Pasadena
Pet Motel is one of their favorite
stops. "Our facility is clean and well


Pooches and those who Pamper Them The team at Pasadena Pet Motel pam-
pers each and every guest in a spa like atmosphere. Owner Kristen Triplett says
that often after one stay at the motel dogs get exolted and want to come back
every time their owner brings them. From left to right Lisa Lombardo, "Jammer"
(who is up for adoption), Kristen Triplett with "Kelsie", Dani Grimm with "Spice" and
"Sugar" and Danielle Moyse with "Isis'"


maintained and our records are kept
up to date," said Kristen. "They can
see our guests are obviously well
cared for and we consistently get the
highest marks possible during our
annual inspection."
"Our whole operation is really a team
effort, I couldn't do this all myself.
Every one of my staff is exceptional
and they all do everything they can
to make sure that both the owner and
the dog are happy," said Kristen.
On hoard is Dallas Hinson, general
manager; Dani Grimrm, office
manager; Danielle Moyse, grooming
manager; Lisa Lombardo, trainer;
and Jennifer and Sam who attend to
all the "creature comforts" required
by guests to the motel.
Trainer Lisa Lombardo is from K-9
Connections has been training dogs
for over 20 years. She was a trainer
and handler with the United States
Air Force and is currently a member
of the American Professional Dog
Trainers Association, not to mention
Creative Loafing's "Best Dog Trainer
of 2007." She offers training for both
young puppies (8 weeks to 6 months),
and for your older dogs (6+ months)
that need to learn their obedience
skills. You also have the option of
getting your dog certified to be a
Canine Good Citizen complete with
diploma. This is a requirement for
some condo associations.


Another unique thing about the
Pasadena Pet Motel is their work
with rescue groups. 'We do a lot of
work with organizations like Friends
of Strays and Rescue groups," said
Kristen. 'Often they will give us the
hardcore cases that they are having
trouble getting adopted. We take
these cases in and give them a loving,
nurturing environment. Many have
been abused or neglected and just
need to he provided a place where
they can learn to trust humans again.
Over the past couple of years we have
gotten over 30 animals adopted this
way.
The Pasadena Pet Motel will be
taking part in the Get Rescued in
Gulfport event on Beach Boulevard
on Saturday, February 28. They
will have a truck on hand to collect
dog and cat food to assist low income
owners who are having trouble
affording food for their pets.

In this troubling real estate market and tough economic environment, we wanted to share our recent
exceptional experience with you and your readers. Everybody likes to hear some good news for a
change!
After the recent loss of our parents, we found ourselves with a condo in Gulfport that we were going to
have to sell from out of state. This presented us with several challenges. The condo needed some work prior to listing and being
absentee owners we had no local contacts.
Enter Bill Sampson, Jr. of Baird Realty. We had received a postcard from Bill, marketing his services as a realtor. After a phone
interview, we were impressed by his friendliness, professionalism and extensive knowledge of the real estate market in the
Gulfport area. Happily, our first impression was an accurate one.
Bill far surpassed our expectations. He assisted us in every aspect of the condo renovations and sale. One week was spent in
Gulfport with Bill to plan the updates and secure the materials. From there, he took over making numerous trips to the property
for measurements, provided access for contractors (which he had lined up), deliveries, property management issues, etc.
Before we knew it renovations were completed within budget and the property was listed. Bill did a phenomenal job marketing
the condo; everything from an online virtual tour to open houses to ads in The Gabber to weekly information sessions for area
realtors. Bill communicated with us every few days to report progress.
In less than six short months we were able to renovated the condo, get it under contract and go to closing. We could not have
accomplished this without Bill.
The people of Gulfport need look no further than Bill Sampson and Baird Realty for their real estate needs!
Sincerely,
The Lorman Family
