Worthington Named
Vice Mayor
Council member
Bob Worthington was
named vice mayor at
Tuesday evening's
council meeting. The
vice mayor's position is .i
a one year term and is ,'. /
appointed by council.
Last year council agreed to go to a rotating
system where each Ward would host
the vice mayor. Last year Michele King
from Ward 2 served in this role so Bob
Worthington from Ward 3 was next in
line.
While the vice mayor's position is mostly
ceremonial, he does run meetings or
make appearance when the mayor is not
available. The vice mayor would assume
the duties of mayor should that individual
become incapacitated.

RV Donation on Hold
Gulfport city council elected to put on
hold a decision about whether to accept
a proposed donation of a mobile RV unit
which would be used as an emergency
response vehicle. Questions have arisen
about the proposed cost of retrofitting the
unit and of maintenance.
"Unfortunately two of the people who
knew most of the answers to these
questions are no longer on city staff," said
Bob Worthington, council member.
"The former city manager Tom Brobeil
and the former city fire chief Gordon
Yaudes were big proponents of accepting
the donation and knew a lot of the costs
associated with it. Since they are gone, we
need to go back and re-research some of
that information."
Captain Phil Fletcher, his daughter Cindy
Davis and husband Al Davis have offered
the vehicle free of charge. The vehicle
would cost nearly $400,000 if purchased
retail. The motor home being offered has
a 400 horse power turbo diesel engine, an
8,000 watt diesel generator, washer and
dryer, multiple slide outs, several large
storage compartments and much more
equipment.

City to Pursue Grant
for "Trolley Market
Square" Proposal
Gulfport city council gave staff the
green light on Tuesday to pursue
grant proposals to build a new
"Trolley Market Square" on the
Tangerine Greenway. Plans call for
a either an actual trolley car or a
model to be constructed or placed on
the site. Additionally, plans call for
amenities for vendor spaces including
electrical hookups and paver spaces.
The city plans to use the new area
as a magnet for public events and to
showcase the blossoming 49th Street
Redevelopment corridor.
According to Fred Metcalf,
community development director,
"the 49th Street Redevelopment Plan
identified a project that would create
a historic neighborhood them utilizing
the old Trolley route that ran between
St. Petersburg and Gulfport. It
includes building a replica of a trolley
as an attraction and welcome center.
The name of Trolley Market Square
is intended to denote the historical
significance of the trolley while


providing a link to the commercial
businesses throughout the 49th Street
Redevelopment area.
The estimated cost for the project
is between $200-300,000. City staff
told council that if they are unable to
obtain the full amount needed there
are contingency plans which could
be implemented to scale back the
projects based upon what funds might
be available. The project will not be
built if grant funding is not available.

County Commissioners
Seek Public Input
Facing an $85 million reduction in
the general fund, the Pinellas County
Board of County Commissioners is
asking residents to bring their budget
ideas to the table.
The meetings, from 5:30 to 8 p.m., will
be held Monday, March 23 at Osceola
High School, 9751 98 Street N.,
Seminole and on Thursday, March 26
at Gibbs High School, 850 34 Street
S., St. Petersburg.
The meetings are designed to give
residents a chance to learn more about
the county budget and the services
that the county commission provides
to residents county-wide. Parks such
as Fort DeSoto are county-owned
and operated, as are many roads
and bridges. Health and Human
Services provides programs to help
the indigent, and Animal Services
provides assistance throughout the
county. There are many more areas
that the county is involved in providing
residents, those who live within
municipal boundaries and those who
live in unincorporated areas.


At the meetings, individuals can
bring their questions and ideas to
individual commissioners, the county
administrator and assistant county
administrators. A questionnaire is
provided so that ideas and priorities
on services and programs can be
collected. Residents are then afforded
the opportunity to speak publicly for
three minutes.
The Pinellas County Board of County
Commissioners plans to cut 20 percent
from its overall general fund for fiscal
year 2010, which begins October 1
and runs through September 30,
2010. This is necessary to meet the
current challenges resulting from the
national economic downturn and to
plan for the continuation of reduced
revenues in the county.
The sharp decrease in county revenue
reflects the national economic crisis,
local reductions in real estate values
and property tax caps. Commissioners
are currently involved in the process of
settingpriorities on the county services
and programs. Knowing that it cannot
continue to provide the current level
of service, the commission wants to
know the community's priorities.

Yard Sale Helps Fund Eckerd Rescue Team

By Leigh Clifton

For the 23rd consecutive year, the
Eckerd College Search and Rescue
(SAR) Team rolled out mounds and
pounds of donated marine goods, boats,
merchandise and gift certificates from
local vendors for resale last weekend.
Always held on the third Saturday in
March, the annual fund raising event
drew more than 1000 people who were
looking for boating bargains and great
deals.
According to 1998 Eckerd graduate
SAR coordinator Ryan Dilkey, the yearly
yard sale raises between ten and twenty
thousand dollars; money that goes
directly into SAR's operating budget.
While that may sound like a substantial
amount of money, it goes quickly when
Alexis Frymoyer was the lucky winner of
Alne5 0 ha 0 rel le the rescue boats need engine servicing
the $550.00 Sea School scholarship at the rescue boats need engine servicing
the Eckerd College Marine Yard sale last and fuel for rescues on a 24 hour basis.
Saturday. The SAR team patrols and rescues an
area of 75 square nautical miles, with
300 miles of Florida coastline and ten miles offshore in main and inland waters
and overlaps three Coast Guard stations of responsibility. The program is a
very unique one; students get no pay and no credit towards a degree. They
must sign a two year service commitment and generally put in about eight to
ten hours of training a week for freshman and sophomores and 20 hours a week
for juniors and seniors. The training is rigorous and while not sanctioned by
the US Coast Guard, it is essentially the same. What they do learn is water
safety, rescue practices, engine mechanics and navigation. Because they are not
a commercial rescue organization like Sea Tow, or Towboat US, the SAR team
does not charge a fee for rescues, which can be anything as simple as an engine
that won't start or is out of gas, to a full capsizing that requires first aid. The
US Coast Guard will not come to give aid unless there are lives in danger, so
Eckerd's SAR team is often called out for assistance.
"I'd put our training up against anyone," Dilkey said. "It's every bit as tough
and thorough as the Coast Guard."
Dilkey also said that the number of SAR's rescues has dramatically increased;
up almost 139% this January over last year, with 18 rescues in January 2009
alone. SAR had 540 rescues logged in 2008. According to Dilkey, it's just one
more problem touched by the overburdened economy.
"I think we're seeing many more rescues because people aren't having regular
service maintenance checks on their boats. They don't want to spend the money
on it. Engines need to be serviced to keep them running. When they quit and
you're out on the water, it can get pretty bad pretty quick."
Dilkey said that there can be anywhere from 40 to 70 students in the SAR
program and they go out in the field to do public presentations 10 to 12 times a
year. The students are responsible for maintaining the marine craft, rotating 24
hour rescue shifts as well as carrying their credit hours towards their particular
degrees. Many come to Eckerd to study marine biology and marine science, so
the SAR program is a good augmentation to those studies.
"It's a lot of work," Dilkey admitted. "But the upside is that we get a sense of
pride by helping people and a great sense of accomplishment."
Alexis Frymoyer, a SAR student, was the lucky winner of the Sea School gift
certificate, which will enable her to get her six pack Captain's license. She was
really happy because Sea School would cost $550.00 without it.

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

Letters

Re: Neighborhood
Crime Watch Needs You
Dear Editor: I agree with David
Molodecki's letter that "It's time that
we take our community back." In
fact, I would like to emphasize that
Gulfport does have an official group
called "Gulfport Crime Awareness
and Prevention" that meets at 7 p.m.
on the second Monday of every month
at the Gulfport Senior Center.
We do not call ourselves "Crime
Watch" because we do not want citi-
zens to "watch", we want them to
be aware and educated on ways to
prevent and how to act when they
see something. We have had guest
speakers on many topics, including
but not limited to, Identity Theft Pre-
vention (Stetson College of Law and
one from a subdivision of the Florida
State Attorney General's Office), Do-
mestic Violence (a Judge, the State
Attorney's Office and the Public De-
fender's Office), Live Safe (Pinellas
County Sheriffs Office), How the
Court System Works (a Judge), Es-
cape School (Dignity Memorial) and
Convenient Store Safety (Sgt. Josh
Stone).
During the candidates' forums, there
were many questions about crime.
This leads one to believe that crime
is on the minds of many people. Un-
fortunately, for a city with approxi-
mately 13,000 people, attendance at
the Crime Awareness and Prevention
meetings are typically the same 6-15
residents at each meeting. Our goals,
in addition to education and preven-
tion, are to increase membership and
quarterly block parties.
We have moved our meetings from
the Neighborhood Center on 49th
Street to the Senior Center in hopes
of increasing attendance. Our meet-
ings are advertised in The Gabber,
on the City's Government Channel
and were quite often brought up at


the end of the Council meetings by
City Council Persons or in Public Ses-
sion if there was an upcoming spe-
cial program scheduled. I still hear
complaints of observations in neigh-
borhoods of "...drug deals..." etc. in
neighborhoods and the "...nothing
being done...". Yet, when asked, the
resident has not notified the police
department even anonymously.
We understand that an effective
Crime Awareness and Prevention
program is not based on regular at-
tendance at meetings. We, as citi-
zens, are an extension of the Police
Department. They cannot be every-
where and are not psychic. We do
need to take our community back and
we need to be a part of the solution.
We encourage everyone to join us for
these meetings and encourage sug-
gestions and comments at any time.
Contact Jeri Reed, Co-coordinator of
the Gulfport Crime Awareness and
Prevention Program at 548-5566
(days), 327-3509 (evenings) or at JR-
volunteer@aol.com.

Soldier Drive Thank you
Dear Editor: Now that spring is
almost here and the holidays have
passed us I would like to take the op-
portunity to express my gratitude to
a lot of you that have graciously do-
nated items to the American Legion
#125 for our soldier drive. Many peo-
ple donated Christmas decorations,
food items and cards to make their
holidays memorable. I do not know a
lot of your names but you are thanked
by the soldiers. Special thanks needs
to go to Starbucks Marketplace, Valu
Pak, Red Hot Beach Nuts, my poker
friends, Hugh and Donna Forsythe
and The Silver Clickers and a very
special Thank You to The American
Legion who supplies all the postage
for the boxes that are sent.
Please keep up the good work and


keep bringing in your donations.
Shirley DiBucci


Re: The Trojan RV
Dear Editor: One suggestion for
using the RV that was donated to the
city of Gulfport at this point may be
to use the vehicle as a mobile opera-
tion center.
In good weather, for drills, for
drives, for voter registration, in pa-
rades, advertise events in the city. In
bad weather, perhaps a mobile EOC
(emergency operation center) when
the city must be evacuated. In the
worse case it could be a mobile city
hall to help people back to the city.
That said, a cost/benefit look at it
even now would be in order before
spending anything on the gift.

Enforce Leash
Laws Equally
Dear Editor: This letter is in re-
gard to the letter a few weeks ago
that discussed the problem with cats
being allowed to roam at will even
though we have the same laws for
them as for dogs. Many of the cats
are so aggressive that they will at-
tack a dog on a leash. Recently a dog
owner informed me that he received
a ticket for $88 for having his dog off
its leash. I wonder if there have been
any tickets for free roaming cats. The
majority of dog owners are respectful
of the law including leash and pick-
ing up after their pets. How many cat
owners abide by the law? Have you
ever sen anyone ever pick up after a
cat?
Something must be done to control
the cat problem in Gulfport. When
will the mayor and council instruct
employees to enforce the laws fairly
for both dog and cat owners?!

By Matthew Margolis

It's Not Always a
Picnic, Buster
President Obama, like him or
not, takes education seriously. And
there's little mystery surrounding
how that came to be. According to
the president, "Five days a week (my
mother) came into my room at four in
the morning, force-fed me breakfast,
and proceeded to teach me my Eng-
lish lessons for three hours before I
left for school and she went to work."
In response to her son's grumbling,
his mother simply said, "This is no
picnic for me either, buster."
Educating your dog isn't always a
picnic, either, but it's worth it. No,
he'll never be president of the Unit-
ed States. But, among other perks,
you'll have a cleaner house, a lon-
ger-lasting wardrobe and a happier
significant other -- the value of none
of which should be underestimated.
Consider the following letters from
unhappy souls whose dogs did not
receive a rigorous education:
"Roxie, my 14-month-old long-
haired miniature dachshund, refus-
es to be potty trained. Although she
goes outside and receives praise, she
often just decides to pee or poop in
the house. She knows she has done
wrong, as she will go hide under
a bed, but we can't seem to break


her of this bad habit. Also, she is a
barker and has not been taught to
come.'
Read between the lines: Roxie
didn't refuse; she wasn't taught.
At this point, there is more than a
year's worth of urine in that house.
Toy dogs should not be exempt from
housebreaking. When it comes to
bodily waste, a little goes a long
way.
"Here's my issue: Nena, my 5-year-
old German Shorthaired Pointer,
chews up my girlfriend's clothes. We
have taken measures to ensure that
all bedroom and bathroom doors are
closed to prevent her from locating
any clothes to destroy, but should we
ever forget, she seizes the opportu-
nity and rips what clothes she finds
to shreds. She particularly likes pa-
jamas and underwear. This would
be mildly amusing if the clothes
weren't expensive. My girlfriend is
extremely frustrated with the dog
and, consequently, with me."
I'm sure she is frustrated. Not only
has her boyfriend not taught his dog
boundaries, but apparently they're
all living in a house that contains
no bureaus, dressers or closets with
doors.
"We just got our puppy, Deuce, last
week. He is an 8-week-old minia-
ture dachshund, and he hates my
husband. He bites hands and toes a


lot, but especially with my husband.
My husband is having a hard time
reconnecting with Deuce and has al-
most given up on him. What can I
advise my husband or myself to do
differently in dealing with this bit-
ing and/or aggression issue?"
At 8 weeks old, there's hope for
Deuce -- assuming the husband can
put in more than a solid week's ef-
fort. They got their puppy last week,
and hubby's ready to throw in the
towel?
People don't do their homework.
They bring a dog home and have no
idea what to do next. Then one day
the dog violates their internalized
standards for acceptable behavior
and it's all his fault.
He runs out the door!
He chews up the furniture!
He urinates inside!
He licks my face!
An 82-year-old woman recently
called me and said she just got a
6-month-old Great Pyrenees. The
pup's weight is equal to the woman's
age, and she has a problem with his
licking her face. She reprimands
him, saying, "You better trust me.
I'm your mother."
I asked her what the Pyrenees had
to say to that.
"He licked my face."
Sounds about right.

t1t 0oroscoDe Guide


PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). There
are so many interpretations of
reality. We humans are constantly
distorting our experiences to fit
our identity. An earnest attempt to
understand someone could entirely
change your perspective. It may be
uncomfortable at first to lose your
preconceived notions, but you'll do it
and be enhanced by the journey.
ARIES (March 21-April 19).
Your role is absolutely important.
Recognize what you do that matters
most to others and then do more of
it. This is the way you will make a
meaningful contribution to society,
and it is much favored over trying to
change yourself and grow talents that
don't come naturally to you. Embrace
who you are right now.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You
are being nudged along a risky path,
perhaps by your own soul. Your
fears come to the surface to keep you
safe, but you refuse to let them keep
you small too. Most of the danger
is emotional -- you could lose your
old idea of who you are, and there's
nothing wrong with that. Wednesday
is your luckiest day.
GEMINI (I.ny 21-June 21). You
think of yourself as a work in progress
and you will improve by leaps and
bounds. You notice how others could
improve too, even when they believe
that they are just fine and don't need
to change in any way. Be careful
not to fall for someone's potential
-- especially not a potential that the
person doesn't want to become.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). You're
used to being a go-getter and perhaps
a little high strung as well. That's
why your current mood may feel
strange. You're accepting how things
are and going with the flow, even
when it's not moving at all. When
you're ready to move, you will -- and
it will be effortless, like you're being
compelled forward.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). It's the ideal
week to forget logic and take things in
a more fanciful direction. Your body


follows your mind. Dwell on beautiful
images of yourself frolicking in a
most desirable circumstance. You are
an exceptionally powerful visionary,
and in a short period of time you may
be able to dream yourself into a new
reality.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Your
powers of empathy are strong and you
soak up the emotions of those around
you. Some kind of performance or
heightened emotional scenario will
take place late in the week. You're
not nervous for yourself, though you
may be anxious because you want
others to do well. You're a valuable
member of your team.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You desire
a harmonious environment and
therefore you are willing to do what it
takes to get along. Your nearest and
dearest will appreciate the way you
match his or her pace, mirror his or
her mannerisms and adopt his or her
priorities -- at least temporarily. The
result: Your sacrifices are rewarded
and you get what you want.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21).
Instead of bemoaning what is lacking
in a relationship, you capitalize on
what is working. You realize that one
relationship cannot be your whole
world and that you are enriched in
different ways by different people.
A close relationship is strengthened
because you take off the pressure of
overexpectation.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec.
21). One who doesn't think like you
could halt the action in your part of
the world. At first you'll probably be
stymied. Change shoes with the other
person. It's not entirely possible to
see the world as this person does, but
with a little effort you can at least get
a good sense of where this person is
coming from.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19).
You like solving problems, especially
the ones that most people would
rather avoid. It's your eagerness
to take problems head on that will
promote you both at work and in


OVE 30 gg CATIOS!

th Gabbe is evrwee 321696


your personal life this week. You
save yourself and others from hours
of future grief because you tackle
issues immediately as they arise.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). To
give yourself a chance to triumph is
to risk failure. It's easier when you
have people telling you that you
really can do it. Wednesday through
Saturday you are in such a gregarious
mood that new supporters will flock
to you. Your love life improves too,
as all the attention makes you feel
so attractive.
This Week's Birthdays: You are
the master of your fate and prove
it at every turn this year. Your
hopeful vision leads you into an
unusual situation in April. You can
do remarkable good there before
the summer starts. Your love life
takes an enthusiastic turn in June
and you become smitten by someone
new, or you fall for the same person
all over again. Work developments
spring from the social happenings
you attend in July. August and
December show you leaving home
and returning fully inspired.

Audubon Society
Celebrates 100 Years
St. Petersburg residents have long
supportedtheirlocalAudubonSociety
through volunteer association,
membership and financial backing.
This year the St. Petersburg
Audubon Society (SPAS), Florida's
oldest chapter, will celebrate its first
century of active participation in the
conservation and awareness of this
city's wild areas and the creatures
that inhabit them.
After a century, organization
members continue attempts at
preserving the area's quality of life
for man and beast alike. According to
chapter president, Mauri Peterson,
"In 1909, St. Petersburg Audubon
Society was created to coordinate a
local effort similar to the national
programs against the senseless
slaughter of Florida's birds. With
that battle largely won, today's
members continue their efforts
at safeguarding our community's
natural web of elements for the next
generation."
Peterson notes that today's Audubon
Society is far more than a collection
of bird watchers. Volunteers,
through SPAS, have launched
programs monitoring endangered
and threatened birds and their
breeding areas; created educational
programs through cooperation with
Pinellas County schools; sponsored
teachers and students in various
programs and conducted yearly
wildlife censuses with county, state
and federal agencies. "Perhaps now,
more than ever," Peterson adds, "as
a part of the most densely populated
county in the state, St. Petersburg


Gabber March 19 March 25, 2009


Audubon must alert the public
to the pressures we place on our
environment and take a leading
role in safeguarding what little
remains."
The centennial will be celebrated
throughout 2009. A celebration
banquet, museum display, photo
exhibit, and other activities are
planned. For more information on
the celebration and membership,

per class with a current $10 annual

Book Addiction

Fortunately for me, the books that
pique my interest cost more than I
want to spend. The Bartender's Guide

I want to know about making the per-

Swamp Island costs $40, and I can't

Alexander Duarte, who lives in Land
O'Lakes, came to work at the fair with his
mother. By Sunday afternoon the 12-year-
old read almost half of the 1936 edition of
Fabre's Book of Insects.

Sending someone like me to the 28th
Annual Antiquarian Book Fair at the
Coliseum last Saturday is like send-
ing a heroin addict to buy needles.
My pulse quickens and I feel a heat
rising up from my gut to my head and
before I know it rent money is gone
but I've got some fantastic books.
Not that, you know, that's ever
happened or anything. Just in case,
though, I leave my wallet in the car,
which should curb some of my spend-
ing but not all of it. I decided that
if I found one of three books I could
buy them: Guy Murchie's Song of the
Sky, a first or older than 1960 edition
of The Velveteen Rabbit by Marjorie
Williams, or Time Enough For Love
by Robert Heinlein.
As soon as I walk in the Coliseum I
remember how much I love the smell
ofusedbooks. It's a distinctive cloying
smell of something not entirely pleas-
ant but it soothes me all the same. I
learned to read at an embarrassingly
precocious age and throughout my
life books let me escape into another
world. Had a fight with my parents?
Escape into a book where everyone
either gets along or has far worse
problems than a 10p.m. curfew. Blew
a test at school? Read a biography of
Thomas Edison. Editor getting on my
case? Well, there's probably a book to
let me forget about that, too.

Q: Is the city of Gulfport buying foreclosed properties with federal mon-
ey?
A: According to Interim City Manager Jim O'Reilly no, Gulfport is not
buying foreclosed homes. However, Gulfport and Pinellas County jointly
participate in a Housing and Urban Development (HUD) program that gets
funding through the Community Block Grant Program to help the County
identify eligible properties within Gulfport.
Once Pinellas County identifies these properties they become part of the
Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP). According to HUD the NSP
"provides emergency assistance to state and local governments to acquire
and redevelop foreclosed properties that might otherwise become sources of
abandonment and blight within their communities."
As this program progresses Gulfport's Building Division will assist the
County through property pre-inspections, plans review, building permitting,
and building inspections.

You & THE




What to Expect in a
Divorce Proceeding
(Part 3)
A Court may find it necessary to
award alimony or spousal support in
many dissolution of marriage cases.
As with child support, the Court will
consider two factors: one party's
need and the other's ability to pay.
Both of these factors must be proven
in Court by the requesting spouse if
the husband and wife cannot reach
an agreement on their own. Ali-
mony may be awarded to either a
husband or wife and, depending on
the length of the marriage and other
factors, the alimony may be perma-
nent or for only a short duration of
time.
Under Florida law, the Court
must try to make an "equitable"
distribution" of marital property
and debts. "Equitable" does not al-


ways mean equal, although that is
the starting point. Many factors,
including child support, custody
and alimony awards, can cause the
Court to make an unequal (but still
equitable) division of property. A
Court will not generally divide the
property and debts that arise out-
side the marriage.
If needed, the Court can order you
or your spouse to do, or not do, cer-
tain things. The Court may order a
party not to telephone the other, not
to come to the other's place of busi-
ness and not to interfere in the other
spouse's activities.
The Court can order one party to
pay some or all of the other party's
attorney's fees. A Court does this to
assure that both parties have equal
access to competent counsel. The
Court does not award legal fees in
every dissolution of marriage case.
The Court must first find that one
party has a greater ability to pay
than the other.
Even if there is an indication
that one party has a greater ability
to pay legal fees than the other par-
ty, you cannot be certain the Court
will award the payment of legal fees
in behalf of the party who does not

have an equivalent ability to pay
legal fees. For this reason, and be-
cause of the great drain that legal
fees can have on marital assets, ev-
eryone (parties and attorneys alike)
should make every effort to resolve
a divorce case as economically and
amicably as possible.

100 Week Countdown to 100 Years!
Gulfport Centennial Countdown Continues!
In just 82 weeks, Gulfport will
celebrate the centennial of its incorpora-
tion, October 12, 1910. We'll be remind-
Sing you every week with an interesting
-- old photograph from the collection of the
Historical Museum. See if you can iden-
tify the people, places, and above all the
decade of each picture as it comes along.
To make it a little bit of a challenge, we
won't publish the correct caption until the
following week.
LAST WEEK'S ANSWER:
Last week's picture of the Gulfport
Marina was taken in January, 1982. The
Boca Ciega Yacht Club is there, but the
Gulfport Marina office was not yet built,
and Osgood Point is empty except for the
Coast Guard Building.
These people had a big anniversary to celebrate and were getting ready to
do it in style. Who are they and what were they commemorating? Answer
next week.

Celebrating

Leo Perry
By Cathy Salustri

Last week Leo Perry showed up
at the Gulfport Senior Center to
honor a special veteran only to get
a little surprise-turns out he was
the special veteran. L
I'\.-Il.... Iy here, they're pretty
tight-lipped-when they need to
be. When they need to be quiet
they talk a lot," Perry joked.
Perry started directing the
Harmonica Club almost 15 years
ago and the club estimates he's put in overl0,000 volunteer hours. The club,
whose members have an average age of 81, performs at nursing homes,
retirement residences, hospitals, churches and private clubs and its members
have retired from careers ranging from milkman to nuclear physicist. The club
donates money to All Children's Hospital, Metropolitan Ministries and the
Gulfport Multipurpose Senior Center.
Recently the group, under Perry's leadership, shipped 700 harmonicas to
soldiers in Iraq and Afganistan. One of the members attended an Ohio
harmonica festival and saw a letter from troops in Iraq. The letter described
how "on one of their routine street patrols, they saw two teenage boys on a
corner with machine guns in their hands."
"With great trepidation they approached the boys and gave them each a
harmonica. The next day when they passed that corner they saw the same two
teens. This time, instead of machine guns in their hands they had harmonicas
in their mouths," the member reported.
For spearheading efforts such as these and taking the reins of a floundering
harmonica club at the request of Sue Frank at the Gulfport Senior Center,
Mayor Mike Yakes proclaimed March 11 "Leo Perry Day."
"We are so blessed to have had you as our leader," the group told Perry.
"You've knocked me for a loop here today," Perry answered.
The Senior Center also gave Perry a certificate of appreciation "in recognition
of his commitment and dedication to the Gulfport Senior Citizen's Harmonica
Club," while the Harmonica Club itself gave Perry a plaque "in recognition and
appreciation" for his 10,000+ hours of volunteering.

formal format which concludes with
sharing coffee, tea, sandwiches and
pastries while engaged in pleasant
conversation and socialization with

theater from 1950 to the present,
come and join their group of friendly
members.

support groups that meet in various
locations throughout Pinellas County.
The new group will be meeting every

Georgia Terry will serve as the facili-
tator for the new group. Ms. Terry can

Shuffleboard Smackdown: Canada vs. U.S.
This weekend the courts at the St. Petersburg Shuffleboard Club heated up
as north fought south in a timeless battle of skill, talent, and... shuffleboard.
The Can-Am Shuffleboard Fourth Annual challenge took place this past
weekend. The challenge, the brainchild of John Witteveen and his wife Betty,
started in 2006.
"I thought it was a wonderful idea for the Canadians to verse the Americans
in shuffleboard," Witteveen, a Canadian, told The Gabber. That first year the
Canadians won the pro division but the Americans took the amateur division.
In 2007 the USA won both divisions, but last year the Canadians swept the
challenge.
OPTION ONE: This year the USA reclaimed its title as multi-national
shuffleboard champs. Next year? Who knows.
OPTION TWO: This year the Canadians held on to their title as champions,
but there's always next year for the Americans.
OPTION THREE: This year the two countries split once again with the
Americans winning the (amateur/pro) division and the Canadians winning the
(pro/amateur) division.

Golden Performances
By Cathy Salustri


Lately it seems the best talent mi-
grates to St. Petersburg Little The-
atre (SPLT). Actors I first saw at
other community theatres pop up
at SPLT and delight audiences with
their well-considered characters and
amazing performances.
Such is the case with Ron Zietz, who
plays Norman. I've seen Zietz deliver
some noteworthy work in shows that
equaled his talent, but I've also seen
some quite fine work in shows that
didn't rise to his level. Thankfully,
SPLT does a more than respect-
able job with Ernest Thompson's On
Golden Pond and Zietz doesn't stick
out too much as the shining light in
this show. From the first moments
of the show, where Zietz masterfully
delivers a hysterical monologue that
lets us know Norman has started to
deteriorate mentally, Zietz wins the
audience over to the "cranky old man
camp.
The play chronicles a summer on
Golden Pond with Norman and Ethel
Thayer, retirees approaching 80 and
70 respectively. Norman has a severe
yet comic fixation with death while
Ethel has a somewhat sunnier view
of life. They struggle with growing
older, issues with their adult daugh-
ter, and the introduction of a teenager
into their daily routine. Between the
1979 play and the 1981 movie most of
America knows the story, and while
the script doesn't say anything new,
it still tells a poignant story.
Because it is an oft-told story this
production could have been horribly
dry and vanilla, but Zietz and Elaine
Coffin (Ethel) keep it lively, osten-
sibly with the assistance of director
David Middleton. Coffin reels Zietz


back in whenever he edges towards
over-the-top, and the twosome devel-
op a sweetly uneasy rhythm as they
bumble through yet another summer
on Golden Pond.
The supporting cast also puts in
worthwhile stage time. Suzy Devore,
last reviewed here as Laura in the
play of the same name, plays Chel-
sea, the sweetly petulant daughter
who adores her mother but has fa-
ther issues. She fits the role well, al-
though she does a better job bringing
out the mother-daughter relationship
than the father-daughter strife. Her
emotional outburst in Act II doesn't
build as it should; it seems as though
it just happens and something about
it feels a little bit off.
Dan Auger portrays Charlie, the
mailman and Chelsea's teenage love.
Auger's deliciously fuzzy portrayal of
the still lovesick Charlie adds dimen-
sion to the show, as does his real-life
Maine accent. His best scene comes
in Act I when he shares a biscuit
with the senior Thayers, and the en-
ergy between Norman and Charlie is
exceptional. Stephen Bell, who plays
Chelsea's new love Bill Ray, had the
smallest role in the show and pulled


off a decent performance of the stiff
newcomer to Golden Pond.
Grayson Samuels makes his second
appearance on the SPLT stage as Bil-
ly Ray, the obstinate teenager who
teaches Norman about living again.
The twosome shares some of the best
moments in the show and have a pal-
pable energy on stage. Samuels, a
sixth grader, holds his own in scenes
with the infinitely more seasoned Zi-
etz, no small achievement for an ac-
tor of any age.
Visually, SPLT delivers a stunning
show. Michael DuMouchel outdoes
himself with a set that Frank Hale
lights like a professional, and the
two designs (set and lighting) dove-
tail beautifully from before the show
starts until the show's end, which
had the audience audibly enchanted.
When you go see On Golden Pond
expect to see a well-paced, thought-
ful community theatre show with
fantastic energy and a talented but
small group of actors. The show lasts
just over two hours and runs through
March 29. For tickets call the box of-
fice at (727) 866-1973.

pa Bay area. You can contact her at

Public Comment


& Council Quotes

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

"With a name like mine you don't have to wear green." -Jim
O'Reilly, interim city manager, joking with a member of the crowd in
council chambers about why he wasn't wearing green for St. Patrick's
Day.

"I would like to suggest that the beach trolley add a stop at the old
Winn Dixie Plaza. I've also heard that there are people in Town
Shores who would like it to come into the complex instead of just
stopping outside of it."-Carol D'Alessandro, Gulfport resident.

"I learned that our public works department is going to save us
about $15,000 a year by going with a new vendor for yard waste
removal. I think staff should always be given kudos when they
save money like that in today's tough economic times." -Marguerite
Tober, Gulfport resident

"The dedication of the new sign denoting the park at 64th Street
and Gulfport Boulevard as R.W. Cauldwell Park is scheduled for
Saturday, April 18 at 11 a.m."-Jim O'Reilly, interim city manager.

10 Questions for Sam Henderson
By Cathy Salustri

To help Gulfportians get
better acquainted with their
newest councilmember, Sam
Henderson we sat down with
him and asked him a few -"
questions.
Gabber: What's your full
name?
Henderson: "Samuel Hoyt
Henderson. Hoyt is a family
name." Henderson is Irish and
Scottish.
Gabber: How long have you
lived in Gulfport?
Henderson moved here in 2006
with his wife of 13 years, Laura
and their 12-year-old daughter
Brenna. Laura teaches at 74th Street Elementary. Brenna graduated from
Gulfport Elementary and now attends Madeira Beach Middle School.
Gabber: Why did you run for council?
Henderson: "As much as I was paying attention I really wanted to see if
there was anything I could do to help and to participate on a greater level.
I've been opinionated about things for so long it was kind of putting my
money where my mouth is."
Gabber: This may come up in the future so we may as well ask it now. Did
you know Michele King before you ran and did she encourage you to run?
Henderson: "It's already come up. I contacted Michele about the USF
project. I was surprised they turned that down. That was when I started
thinking about running."
Gabber: What do you want to do on council?
Henderson recently met with city attorney Tim Driscoll, who briefed him
on the Sunshine Law, and Henderson told The Gabber "can't talk about
things that might come up for vote. I'm real wary of breaking the rules
right now."
Gabber: What about things that aren't coming up for a vote?
Henderson: "I want to get a couple days every month where you can bring
your dog to the beach. If we can get more (than a couple of days) that's
fantastic, but it's a start so at least you don't have to go to Fort DeSoto if
you only have an hour before dinner to walk your dog."
Henderson also said he'd like to keep the speed limit on Gulfport Boulevard
down. This is coming into question, he says, with the County's expansion
plan. He'd also like to possibly add crosswalks.
He would also like to see some of the ponds made into bird sanctuary.
Gabber: How about the mooring field? How do you feel about that?
Henderson: "The permitting rules are a little more lenient with a smaller
footprint, so I'd like to start with 15 and learn from our mistakes and
maybe save money."
Gabber: Did you expect to win?
Henderson: "No. Not in the beginning, especially not with the margin I
did. The last month I thought I really had a good shot."
Gabber: Are you religious?
Henderson: "I've kind of lost my taste for organized religion. I was raised
Episcopalian. My wife and daughter and I pray every day."
Gabber: What's your dog's name?
Henderson: "Sherman."








49th Street South Business Association
By Cathy Salustri
After several months of meetings between businessmen and representatives
from both St. Petersburg and Gulfport, the 49th Street South Business
Association came into existence on October 23. This group of business owners,
citizens and property owners hope to make a difference along the 49th Street
South corridor, according to Association secretary Walter Dill.
"Both cities have Chambers of Commerce and Gulfport has the Gulfport
Merchants Association. Our needs differ but do not conflict with these
organizations," Dill explained. "Our association is seeking to achieve a district
that will be regionally recognized for its vibrancy, special goods and services
and promote the entrepreneurial opportunities that come with that."
"We hope the community will be helped as the district becomes safer and
more visible and we can bring in some of the retail and service businesses that
are much needed in the area," Dill added.
The Association gave the Childs Park Neighborhood Association eight
cameras to encourage residents to enter the 49th Street South photo contest,
sponsored by the 49th Street South Business Association (entries due April 6
for the April 11 exhibition.)
While the district's boundaries reach two blocks east and west of 49th Street
South and span Central Avenue to Boca Ciega Bay, the Association welcomes
anyone as a member even, Dill says, "if they don't have a business or reside in
the physical boundaries."
The Association offers several annual memberships ranging from $25 to
$100. They meet on the second Wednesday of the month at 5:30 p.m. at the
Gulfport Neighborhood Center. For more information contact Walter Dill at
323-3455 or visit so49.org.

Lady Pirate Football kicks off Season with Loss to Gibbs

By Leigh Clifton
The Boca Ciega Girls Varsity football team
openedtheir seasonwith a toughloss to Gibb's,
12-0 Tuesday night. Looking very strong,
however, was freshman quarterback # 5 Liz
Hill, who at 15 possessed a lot of poise and a
long precise arm. The diminutive Hill threw
well over the heads of several of Gibb's taller
defenders and also rushed the ball handily.
First time player 444 Samah "Alicia Keys" --*-
---
Irshid had a stunning interception, plucking I-
the ball from the grasp of a surprised Gibb's I
player. She was always in the mix and was
able to break up a few plays from the sweep -- -
side. Outstanding Girls Varsity basketball --- --
player # 2 Tory Stephens showed she had
some sharp football chops to go along with GIB
her basket skills, making some great in the
air and over-the-top catches. # 22 Janine
Starling made several spectacular runs; she
was quick and able to turn on the bursts of
speed at will, blowing past defenders. .
Coach Timothy Henson had nothing but .
praise for his team.
"This team is stronger than last year's," he
said. "With Liz Hill at QB, we have a really
good shot at a winning season. She's shown
a lot of maturity and even though she's only
15, she's earned her spot on this varsity
team. We have a lot of outstanding athletes
on this roster this year. So now we'll just
take this loss and move on. There's plenty .
of season left." .,Je
The Lady Football Pirates next game is .
Lakewood, always a huge rivalry, and a
team that Coach Henson says is very quick
on their feet. They are, however, a rebuilding .
team this year, having lost a lot of their
varsity players last year to graduation.
Kickoff for the Lakewood game (at Lakewood) ~.
is at 7:30 Thursday night. Tory Stephens takes her skills to new heights as she grabs a ball mid-air for a reception.
Tory, an outstanding basketball player, showed she's got some football chops as well.


Bogie Girls Softball Beat Dixie H
By Leigh Clifton
More than halfway through the season, the 6-4 Boca Ciega
Girls Varsity softball team are playing like champions.
Playing in a light spring rain Tuesday night, they pounded
Dixie Hollins 10-0 and left no room in anyone's mind that they
would be tough contenders for upcoming District tourney.
Coach Michelle Beckert couldn't be happier with their play
so far this season.
"We have some tremendous athletes on our team. We've got
girls hitting over 500 consistently. We moved our pitcher,
Britney Wolfenbarger originally from catcher to short stop
and now finally to the mound and she's been great for us."
Assistant Coach Scott Durspek seemed to agree. He was
overheard confiding to a fan, "There doesn't seem to be a
position Britney can't play."


Britney went 2 for 2 in at bats; she's currently carrying a
wopping .576 batting average. She also pitched a shut-out.
Her wind-up was blinding and lightning fast; she blew pitches
by the Dixie Hollins girls all night.
Another standout, Mallory Allen turned in a phenomenal 4
for 4, with 2 triples, a double and a single to bring in 4 runs
and score 2 on her own. She's currently batting at .428 and
has been pretty formidable at short stop. Both Lina Ly and
Mary Burkett are hitting at .500. With bats like these, the
Lady Pirates have been kickin' butt and taking names. With
just five more regular season games to go before Districts, the
Lady Pirates are focused and confidant.
"I feel sure we'll be up there at District's," Coach Beckert
smiled. "These girls are ready."
Wednesday night the Lady Pirates travel to Dunedin; game
time is 7pm.

NEVER FAILING PRAYER TO ST. MICHAEL
- St. Michael, the Archangel, Defend Us In

buke Him We Humbly Pray; and Do You Oh
Prince of the Heavenly Host, By the Power
of God, Thrust Into Hell Satan and the Other
Evil Spirits Who Prowl About the World For the
Ruin of Souls. Amen. St. Michael, I Resort
to Your Protection and in My Faith, Offer This
Light Which Shall Burn Every Tuesday. Com-
fort Me in My Difficulties and While Lodging in
the House of Our Savior Intercede for Me and
My Family That We Will Be Able to Hold God
Close to Our Hearts and Be Provided for in All
of Our Necessities. I Beseech You, to Have
Infinite Pity in Regard to Favors I ask of You
(Name Them) So That I May Be Able To Over-
come All Difficulties as You Did the Dragons
at Your Feet. Our Father (Say 3 Times). Hail
Mary (Say 3 Times). Glory Be (Say 3 Times).
This Prayer is to be Said 9 Tuesdays, in Suc-
cession and Each Tuesday a Candle Shal

Miraculous Saint Grants Everything, No Mat-
ter How Difficult, Before the Termination of 9

you I have recourse from the depth of my heart
and humbly beg to whom God has given such
great power to come to my assistance. Help
me in my present and urgent petition. In return
I promise to make your name known and cause
you to be invoked. St. Jude, pray for us and all
who invoke your aid. Amen.
Say three Our Fathers, three Hail Marys
and Glorias. Publication must be promised.
This Novena has never been known to fail I
have had my request granted Publication

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 al 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 andmine.
G.B.
MAYTHE SACRED Heart of Jesus be adored,
glorified, loved, and preserved throughout the
world. Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, pray for us.
Blessed Mother, pray for us. St. Jude, worker
of miracles, pray for us. Say this prayer for
ninet days, nine times a day. Then publish this
prayer. ThankYou, Jesus.
