the Zoo Gulfport Attorney
Released on Bail
By Cathy Salustri


The Gulfport Elementary Kindergarten school trip to
owry Park Zoo seemed to be the perfect sleep aid.
I'll admit it, I was skeptical of covering the
ulfport Elementary Kindergarten class field

nd have never really been around many,
specially that age. A five year old is a mystery to
e, I have no idea what they're thinking and no
ue how they process their world. But Gulfport
elementary Community Liaison Jim Martin, who
helped coordinate this trip and also works very
osely with the parents and teachers in outreach
programs, convinced me to ride the bus with the
ids to the zoo in Tampa instead of driving my
wn car. I hadn't been on a school bus in 35 years

After spending four days in jail,
Gulfport attorney David Doss bonded
out of the Pinellas County jail with a
$100,000 surety bond. Gulfport police
arrested Doss on March 16 in response
to a warrant sworn out by the State
Attorney's Office.
The warrant alleges that Doss, who owns
a law practice on Gulfport Boulevard,
embezzled almost a quarter of a million
dollars from clients. According to the St.
Petersburg Times one of Doss' clients,
Joan Bernstein, complained to authorities
when she could not get an accounting of
her money from Doss.

suggests that I
speak with him first. That's the first thing
I noticed about Sammy when I met him
down at the marina, how polite she is.
Sammy isn't your everyday 75-pound
yellow lab; she's in training for a lifetime
of work. Sammy, who turned 14 months
old in March, will spend another four
months with Walter before she goes back
to Southeastern Guide Dogs for intense
guide dog training.
Southeastern Guide Dogs refers to people
like Walter McMullen as "dedicated
puppy raisers" because they take in
puppies, spend a year or more teaching
them basic commands and socializing the
dogs in a variety of environments, and

Tree City USA community by the
Arbor Day Foundation to honor its
commitment to community forestry.
It is the 11th year Gulfport has
received this national recognition.
Gulfport is also the recipient of
a Tree City USA Growth Award
for demonstrating progress in its
community forestry program in the
following activity areas: planning
and management; tree-maintenance
budget and municipal funding. The
prestigious Growth Award recognizes
environmental improvement and
higher levels of tree care in Tree City
USA communities.
The Tree City USA program
is sponsored by the Arbor Day
Foundation in cooperation with
the National Association of State
Foresters and the USDA Forest
Service.

tobecome aTreeCityUSAcommunity:
having a tree board or department, a
tree care ordinance, a comprehensive
community forestry program, and an
Arbor Day observance.
"A community, its elected officials
and its citizens that provide needed
care for its trees deserves recognition
and thanks," said John Rosenow,
chief executive of the Arbor Day
Foundation. "They recognize that
trees are a vital component of the
infrastructure in our cities and
towns, providing environmental and
economical benefits. Trees moderate

Q. How accurate are these health screenings?
A. Our adherence to stringent protocol, highly trained sonographers, state-of-the-art ultrasound machines, and
board certified interpreting radiologists make the screenings exceedingly accurate. Physician written protocols
ensure consistency and accuracy.
Q. Why should I have these tests If I have no symptoms?
A. It is important to have a screening to identify problems before symptoms arise, potentially avoiding a serious
health crisis. Unfortunately, our body's warning signs often come too late.
Q. Does my doctor do these tests as part of my routine checkup?
A. Most physicians can only prescribe ultrasound tests if you are already having symptoms, not for prevention
reasons. Prevention Plus is here to identify disease before a problem occurs.

original or restored pre-1959 antique
automobiles and vintage motorcycles
will be displayed throughout the
21-acre picturesque Heritage Village
landscape. Awards will be presented
along with the popular People's
Choice Awards. The vehicle owners
arrive dressed in period costume to
match their cars and talk about the

the automobile and the open road.
To rev up the fun, swing dancing and
musical entertainment is scheduled

the fire truck from years of neglect.

Nancy Janecek, Gulfport: "I think
he has got a lot on his shoulders that
he inherited from the previous ad-
ministration. But I think he is genu-
inely trying to work all through this.
He is starting to be accepted by a lot
of people who never expected to give
him a chance and now he seems to be
very well accepted by the European
community abroad as well. His idea
to lift the embargo on Cuba shows
that it's really about time to open the
doors of the US to Cuba. I'm sure a
lot of people in Florida will be happy.
There are a lot of people in the US
with family still there and its been
such a struggle for them. I think
President Obama is working one by
one through some of the major issues
affecting this country, and I think
the US appreciates his candor and
his efforts."





321-69


Despina Wright, Tampa: "I'm
pleased with how the President is do-
ing. I like that the country feels like
it's moving forward, its a positive
change. We can't expect everything
to be perfect overnight; he's taking it
one day at a time. I also like that he's
not trying to hide or sugarcoat any-
thing. He's being methodical and I
really like his cabinet appointments,
especially Hillary Clinton. I think
that the two of them have broken
down barriers that will never go back
up. I do think that the country just
wasn't ready for a female President
yet, but hopefully this will pave the
way. I like how opening up to Cuba
will directly affect Florida in a posi-
tive way and will help the people of
Cuba as well. Their economy really
needs the help and it will help us
as well. We can establish trade with
items like sugar, rum, vegetables
and beef products. It would be great
for Latinos in Florida, some of whom
will be able to see and visit their fam-
ilies for the first time in such a long
time."


Trevor Briggs, Gulfport, Resident
Alien from London: "I think he's
done a very good job considering he
got a lot of the old guard conserva-
tives in the House trying to block ev-
ery change he's been trying to make.
I wish people would stop dissing him
and give him a chance. It's still very
early to turn a ship around that's
sinking as fast as this one. He's got so
much that needs fixing that I'm afraid
he's stretching himself a bit thin. But
I don't think he's overextended as he
seems to be handling the challenges
very well. I heard on the news today
an observation someone made about
Cuba; we can travel as Americans to
countries that use terrorism as part
of their political tactics, but we can't
travel to our nearest neighbor, Cuba,
who seems to pose no threat to the US.
I hope he can get the whole Cuba is-
sue to open up. Also, if he can change
the public perception of the economy
so that people feel better about it, it
will get better. It's all about percep-
tion and I think people are eager to
listen to the President when he talks
about better times coming along."


Mark Sheffield, St. Pete: "I like what he's done with the stimulus package, but
of course there are some flaws and no one side is going to be totally happy. But
at least President Obama has been smart enough to surround himself with good,
solid people around him; people who have experience, even if he doesn't; great
back-up, especially Hillary Clinton. She strikes me as a person who can truly
take care of business. She's tough and handles herself well, with a lot of profes-
sionalism. The President made a great choice and I think his other choices are
sound and positive for the country. At least he is making the conscious effort to
take a shot at addressing some of the major problems in this country. I applaud
him for that."

YOU & THE


LAV


Your Personal
Injury Rights
(Part 1)
The State of Florida's Motor Vehicle
No-Fault affects your personal injury
protection rights if you are in an ac-
cident involving a motor vehicle.
First, the Florida Motor Vehicle No-
Fault Law provides personal injury
protection (PIP) benefits. These ben-
efits pay for certain losses you may
have resulting from an accident. Sec-
ond, the Florida Motor Vehicle No-
Fault Law dictates a limited exemp-
tion for liability for injuries suffered
by others in a vehicular accident.
Who Is Covered Under PIP?
All residents of the State of Flori-
da who own a motor vehicle are re-
quired to purchase PIP. Someone has
PIP coverage if they are the named
insured. A named insured is covered
by PIP if she or he is injured by a mo-
tor vehicle even if that person is out-
side of a motor vehicle, for example,
if they are injured by a motor vehicle
as a pedestrian.
Relations and children who live
with the named insured may also be
covered by PIP benefits of the named
insured if they are driving the named
insured's vehicle and are injured.
Similarly, if the same people are in-
jured when they are passengers in
the named insured's vehicle or an-
other vehicle, they may be covered by


the named insured's benefits. Like-
wise, pedestrians which are relatives
in the named insured's household
who are injured by the motor vehicle
may be entitled to PIP benefits under
the named insured's motor vehicle
insurance policy.
People other than relatives of a
named insured may be entitled to
a named insured's PIP benefits. If
someone is driving in a named in-
sured's vehicle, is a passenger in that
insured vehicle or is injured as a pe-
destrian may be legally covered by
the named insured's PIP benefits.
Finally, if you as a named insured
are injured while driving your in-
sured vehicle outside the State of
Florida, you may be covered under
your motor vehicle PIP benefits so
long as the accident occurred in the
United States, Canada or in U.S. ter-
ritories or possessions. This same
scope of coverage may also apply to
relations who are living in the named
insured's household.
In our next article, we will explore
together some additional aspects of
personal injury protection rights and
benefits including medical payments/
benefits and certain exclusions to PIP
coverage.

By Matthew Margolis
Aggression in Pups
is not Normal
I'm currently working with an ag-
gressive dog. His owner is a single
woman who lives on a ranch. No chil-
dren are at risk. The woman is re-
sponsible, stable and willing to work
with the dog in a humane way for
the best possible results and the best
possible relationship. At the end of
our time together, that's what she'll
get.
The following letter from a reader
describes a situation I'm not willing
to work with:
"We have three kids -- 12, 11 and 11.
We've had Great Danes before and
have a 4-year-old female now, along
with our new puppy, Romeo, who is
4 months old and weighs 80 pounds.
He's rough on our adult Dane, he's
been a bit rough on our cats, and
we've all felt a tooth on our skin.


"Romeo is probably going to weigh
200 pounds and definitely has an
alpha 'attitude.' He shows a strong
sense of dominance: He growls at be-
ing told no, barks back at me, growls
when being pinned to the floor and
will stare into anyone's eyes. When
taken by the collar, he growls at the
kids and sometimes bites at them to
get their hands off. It is difficult to
discern the difference between 'pup-
py mouthiness' and 'aggression.'
"Most of his growling starts when
being punished. He's been smacked
(not hard) with my hand, as I was
trained to do in years past. I've done
a lot of finger pointing and pinning,
but he'd keep growling, so I'd up the
ante until he stopped. Everyone kept
telling me I should never let him get
away with the growling.
"The good things are: I can give him
all those tests on your website; I can
give him a bone and take it out of his
mouth or his dish; I can have him lie
on his back while I examine his feet


and mouth; and he'll relax for a half-
hour during puppy class.
"He's a sweet lovey-dovey Great
Dane who will be neutered at 6
months. I'm concerned about him,
and I'm concerned I might be doing
something wrong."
He should be concerned about his
kids.
The difference between "puppy
mouthiness" and "aggression" is all
in the growl. A growl is never play-
ful. If a dog is growling or showing
his teeth, he's warning you: Keep it
up and someone's gonna get bit.
When we spoke on the phone, the
man told me he grew up with aggres-
sive dogs. He was raised on a philoso-
phy of dominance, which is why he so
casually admits to hitting, pinning,
pointing and yelling as his methods
of "training."
Romeo growls in response to this
abuse, which is his only way of saying
he doesn't like it. That's what growl-
ing is: a dog's means of communicat-
ing his dissatisfaction, of issuing his
warning. Rattlesnakes have rattles.
Dogs have growls.
Hubby received a lot of bad advice
before calling me: His vet suggested
Romeo might grow out of it. A trainer
encouraged him not to worry, that
Romeo just needs someone to domi-
nate him.
I told him the truth: Aggression in
puppies is not normal. It isn't safe
to keep Romeo in a house with chil-
dren.
How does it happen that a 3-month-
old pup is aggressive?
When Hubby visited the breeder
where he found Romeo, he met Ro-
meo's mother, who promptly growled
at him. Sometimes it's as simple as
bad breeding. That's when you as a
future dog owner must be vigilant.
Keep looking. Puppies should be play-
ful. Their mothers should be relaxed.
My belief is not that aggressive dogs
can't or shouldn't be worked with. It's
that aggressive dogs shouldn't live in
homes with children. It's too risky. To
quote the first President Bush, "Not
gonna do it. Wouldn't be prudent."

SPCA Pet of the Week
This pretty girl has a beautiful coat of grey fur and emerald
green eyes. Smokey was brought to the SPCA Tampa Bay be-
cause she became pregnant. Her kittens have all gone and now
she is alone and looking for someone else to love her. Smokey
has lived with young children and is used to being an 'inside'
kitty. She is affectionate, curious and happy. If you want to
see Smokey or any other pets come visit them at SPCA Tampa Bay, 9099 130
Avenue N. in Largo or call 586-3591.

Adopt a Fast Friend
This week's greyhoundis Cramer. He currently lives at Grey-
hound Pets of America's Gandy Boulevard kennel and gets
along well with the other greys but isn't cat friendly. Cramer
loves everyone, is very responsive, and listens well. He has
a wonderful personality, and is very sweet and loving. He
would do very well for a first-time, no experience greyhound
owner. If you would like to meet Cramer or any of our other greyhounds, please
call us on 595-7852, visit their website: greyhoundpets.com, or see them at the
Tyrone PetSmart on most Sundays from noon to 2 p.m. Call first if you want
to meet a specific dog.

Guide


ARIES (March 21-April 19). A
mature warrior realizes that the
time for action is not always now.
Restraint will be the key to your
ultimate victory. You reahze that
there are holes in your body of
knowledge. Research is crucial.
When you don't know the answer to
something, you attract the perfect
people to supply the answers.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20).
You've always thought of yourself
as a creative person, and yet it's also
important to you to be appropriate
to the situation at hand. You may
not be able to have it both ways this
week. Dare to push the social norms.
The big ideas come when you decide
not to worry so much about rules.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). The
golden rule will serve you well this
week. You'll be there to provide the
cheering that you would like to hear.
You will give the attention that you
crave. You will feed and nurture
others the way you wish you were fed
and nurtured. It works well for you,
as everything you put out zings back
like a boomerang.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). It's
amazing how much you manage to
pack into this week. Even when it
appears that you're at leisure, you're
actually working on an action plan
that will maximize your strengths
and minimize your weaknesses.
Well, maybe you're not consciously
working on it, but your subconscious
mind is extremely busy.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You'll be in
a position to connect with new and
potentially helpful people. The key
in making a good impression is to
find a way to care about something
the other person cares about. It
could be a yappy dog or a pohtical
viewpoint. You have it in you to be
compassionate and attentive even
when it's a stretch.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You've
learned from your mistakes, but that
doesn't mean you'll stop making


them. You'll just make better ones
that show how far you've come.
Perhaps one of your recent mistakes
is even worth celebrating. As your
glamorous sign mate Sophia Loren
said, "Mhstakes are part of the dues
one pays for a full hfe."
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Even the
most confident people are not certain
all of the time. There willbe moments
of feeling lost and wondering how to
handle things. Pause for a breath,
though, and it won't be long before
you realize that you know more than
you thought. Upbeat people will
assist you, and friendly advice will
prove sound.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Your
sense of justice is ahgned with that
of the great forces of the universe.
It all works out in a way that you
think is fair. It's especially satisfying
when this happens in your love
life. Thursday through Saturday is
luckiest. The one you are attracted
to will show that he or she feels the
same way about you.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec.
21). At first you don't get where
loved ones are coming from, but you
are a fantastic hstener. With your
mouth closed, you'll pass through
moments of misunderstanding and
wind up with a deeper knowledge
of the people around you. You'll find
out just how valuable your gift of
undivided attention is to others.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19).
You are hesitant to get into the
flow with all those busy people
around you. You want to make sure
that you're not moving just to look
busy. Your activities have to mean
something to you. There's a huge
difference between being active and
achieving. Be thoughtful and don't
make a move until you're sure.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You
won't find your bhss by following
the crowd. As a rule, it's a very
particular thing that makes you
smile and laugh, and this week your


OVERI300 LOCATION!

the Gabrivrwhr!3166


proclivities are even more specific
than usual. Don't bother pursuing
happiness; create it. You have the
raw ingredients already, and Monday
brings the cherry on top.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You
expect different things from hfe than
others are hoping for -- not better,
just different. Your interests coincide
nicely with those of your fellows.
Perfect solutions come to you. All
you have to do is relax and hsten
to others with an open mind. You'll
fulfill someone else's needs while
trying to get your own fulfilled.
This Week's Birthdays: Your hfe
will go according to plan this year, so
be extra sure that you have a plan
you love. It's very lucky to revise and
rewrite it over the next three weeks
to include more enticing rewards. A
mentor steps into the picture at the
end of this month. You'll become
healthier and more beautiful through
May. Resolve to use your leisure
time differently this summer. June
brings exciting love. In July, the best
things happen while you're dancing.
Business booms in September and
October.

Market Prompts a
Focus on Rehabs
Every year since 1985, somewhere
in Pinellas County a new Habitat for
Humanity home has been built for a
family in need of an affordable place
to live. However, as recent real estate
market and economic downturns
have caused many homes on the open
market to be abandoned, the local
Habitat affiliate turns its attention
to the purchase of these distressed
properties.
Operation REhabitat is an effort
to purchase and rehab short sale or
foreclosed homes rather than solely
building new. Along with responsibly
utilizing donations and volunteer
hours, the program will act as a
stabilizing force in the community,
repairing blighted houses and adding
qualified candidates to the pool of
homeowners.
Considering Realtytrac.com reports
Pinellas County to have more than
2,000 new foreclosures in December
08 alone, HfHPC is looking to turn
this down economy into an upswing
for their homeowner candidates.
Testing the effort with the first
open market purchase and rehab
of a property in St. Petersburg,
Habitat Pinellas was able to revamp
the blighted home in three and a
half weeks. The Peterson family
anticipates an April 3rd closing and
a home dedication on April 4th.
Habitat Pinellas continues to look
for more properties to match with
candidates. For more information
about Habitat for Humanity of
Pinellas County, contact 536-4755
or consult the website at www.phfh.
org.

A Fashionable Pose


Town Shores
Red Hatters
Our first try at fashion had
approximately 140 ladies viewing
fashions from Bon Worth. The
desserts, made by committee
members and a few other Red
Hatters were delectable. Everything
surpassed our expectations. We'd
like to offer special thanks to all the
bakers, but especially Barbara, to
Bon Worth and their sales reps, to
our models and needless to say, to
all those who came. A good time was
had by all.


For April, the regular Bunko game
is scheduled for Friday, April 17
from 1-3 p.m. in the lounge. We're
also looking at a bus trip to the
Hard Rock Casino for April 21.
Players must stay a minimum of
four hours in the casino. Cost is $25,
but a $25 voucher is given back to
attendees. As of now we have 16
signed up. In order to run the trip
we need a minimum of 25 or it will
be cancelled.
If you are interested in going please
call Bev at 381-2122 or Carol at
345-2303 by April 13 to reserve your
spot.


Petie Pawlikowski hams it up for the
camera at the Town Shores Red Hat
Ladies Fashion Show last week. Nearly
a dozen models showed off the last
women's fashions as provided by
Bonworth woren's fashions store. Over
a hundred women attended the event.

Farm, Fresh, and Beach Markets

By CathySalustri
Looking for fresh fruits and veggies? Tired of picking over supermarket oranges *
and looking at your fish through plastic wrap? Look no further than three local
farmer's markets for produce, cheese, meat and a little something extra. Here's a
look at weekly open-air markets that get you off the canned and shrink-wrapped
and into fresh and local.


St. Pete Beach's Wednesday Morning Market
Every Wednesday from 9
Sa.m. Until 3 p.m. the court.
l-.PA s_ yard of St. Pete Beach's
community center fills with
,shoppers seeking fresh
cheeses, clothing and pro.
duce. Building on the success of local markets like
S this one, St. Pete beach recently approved a three month trial period
for a European style market on Corey on Sundays. Between the two
markets, St. Pete Beach residents and snowbirds alike can find al-
most any grocery item they need.
For more information contact the city of St. Pete Beach at 367-2735
or visit StPeteBeach.org.



Gulfport's Fresh Market

Now in it's fourth year along Beach Boulevard, the Tuesday Morning Fresh
Market offers one of the areas most complete selection of fresh fruits and veg-
etablesevery Tuesday. Lines for the produce stretch down the block, so get there
early (the market starts at 9 a.m. and runs until 3 p.m.) and plan to spend some
time. The line isn't all bad, though, because it snakes past other vendors, giving
shoppers a chance to take in the work of local artisans and browse the booths sell -
ing honey, nuts, and other goodies.
Gulfport's Fresh Market also has fresh fish, live music, and an eclectic assort.
ment of other wares. Unlike several other markets Gulfport operates its Fresh
Market year-round. For more information contact the Gulfport Merchant's Asso-
ciation (GulfportMA.com) or call Leslie Gilchrist at 343-5962.

St. Petersburg's Saturday Morning Market
I Unquestionably the area's longest and most popular of all the local markets, St. Petersburg's
Saturday Morning Market has the lion's share of vendors, patrons and offerings. From coco-
nut water still in the coconut to rocking chairs, downtown St. Petersburg has it for sale from
9 a.m. until 2 p.m. Saturday mornings. Because of the race downtown the market wont'
operate this Saturday but the next Saturday they'll be open for business once again at Al
Lang field through late May. For more information visit SaturdayMorningMarket.com.

For more information on these and other farmer's markets visit Florida-Agriculture.o00m.

BSontetht/
1 By Bill Northrop
Florida State University is
in a dither about sanctions
put upon them by the NCAA
for an athletes) cheating incident
or incidents widespread was the
way it was described. Anyway, the
University is going to appeal the
ruling.
The football team forfeits
victories from the 2006 and 2007
seasons. Football fans and sports
commentators were incensed that
the penalties would mean that
famed coach Bobby Bowden would
have a hard time catching Penn
State's Joe Paterno winlist. Bowden
is 79 and Paterno 80 (or is it 81?).
Bowden says he isn't worried about
that but the punishment doesn't fit
the crime.
In the meantime, no one seems
embarrassed that two staff
members and an assistant tutor,
and the athletes were cheating on
a music appreciation test. In other
words, cheating is not the problem.
The punishment is. What does that
say about university values?
Not that it's a big surprise.
Cheating is wide spread in the
public schools and, obviously, in the


on My mind

financial sector of business. And,
should I mention the politicians
and government officials who have
problems with taxes? How about
drugged up athletes? Well, you
get the picture. In that context, no
wonder the University is so upset.
Hey, everybody does it. Don't get so
upset.
However, it makes me wonder
about degrees issued by the school.
Is a little help handed out here
and there to protect someone's
scholarship, or to make the
academic records look good? Got
to keep that money coming. Maybe
it doesn't make any difference at
all. If no one really cares, it will be
business as usual.
Of course, that's a problem for
those who do play by the rules,
who don't cheat, don't take drugs
to increase their performance, pay
their taxes, don't cheat or steal in
general and so on. How they should
respond is to whack these others
across the side of the head, or as
the street expression goes, "come
up side your head". The thing is the

6 c6port's Centeudat

S00 Week Countdown to 100 Years!
Gulfport Centennial Countdown Continues!


Yes, Gulfport had residents who were born before the Civil War. These two
families lived near the corner of Tangerine and 52nd Street. Any guesses?
Answer next week.


Think you know the answer?
Send us an email with your answer, name and
phone number to News@theGabber.com


In just 80 weeks, Gulfport will
celebrate the centennial of its incorpora-
tion, October 12, 1910. We'll be remind-
ing 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 WEEKS ANSWER:
John Dobler, who became mayor of
Gulfport in 1919 (by a vote of 15-13), built
the handsome hotel seen in last week's
picture. Though it had 41 rooms, each
with its own lavatory and hot and cold
running water, the Dobler Hotel never
really prospered, in time became the
much more successful Boca Ciega Inn, and
was eventually demolished in 1974. The
wooden pier was replaced in the 1930s as
a WPA project.

R.W. Caldwell Park Dedication, Saturday April 18, 11 a.m.


During the February 17th Council Meeting, a recom-
mendation was made under resolution 2009-22 to rename
the 64th St. Park area in the name of R.W. Caldwell. City
Council had previously received an application from the
Gulfport Chamber of Commerce at the February 3rd Coun-
cil meeting requesting that the park area located at 64th
Street South and 13th Avenue South be named in recogni-
tion of three generations of R.W. Caldwell's. The following
information below is from that request.
The Caldwell family has an amazing 80 year history in
the City of Gulfport. R.W. Caldwell Realty is the oldest
in Gulfport and that it still thrives is a testament to his
commitment to Gulfport. There have been three R.W.
Caldwells, R.W. Caldwell, Sr., R.W. Caldwell, Jr. and R.W.
Caldwell, III, and each has been notable and well thought
of in the development of our beautiful City of Gulfport,
Florida.
R.W. Caldwell, Sr. was a member of Gulfport City Council
from 1939 to 1943. He was known as the "Father of Gulf-
port's Beach", transforming the very swampy and unus-
able shoreline into the beautiful wide Gulfport Beach that
we enjoy today. He was involved in finding suitable sand
deposits off of 51st Street South, supervised and paid for
the pumping from 1939 to 1940. The City had completely
defaulted on the bonds they had used to build all the brick
streets with the granite curbs. Gulfport was bankrupt. As
Head of the Finance Committee, R.W. Caldwell created a
plan and then went to Wall Street in New York City and
arranged to refinance Gulfports debt with a more afford-
able payment schedule. As a result, Gulfport's credit was
restored.
R.W. Bo' (and later known as Bob) Caldwell, Jr. first
came to Gulfport with his maternal grandparents, George
and Abigail Jarrell, in 1927 when he was seven years old.
He has been in Gulfport now more than 80 years. The Jar-
rell's family business was the Gulfport Market at 2832
Beach Boulevard where La Fogata is today. R.W. Bob'
Caldwell, Jr. was the first President of the Gulfport Cham-
ber of Commerce, President of the Friends of the Gulfport
Library when the library at 28th Avenue and Beach Bou-


levard was planned and built, planned and built the First
Bank of Gulfport. Bob's largest Gulfport business enter-
prise was when he became the Managing Partner of the
Pasadena Partnership that bought the land known as
Skimmer Point and later Pelican Bay. Under Bob's lead-
ership, along with the leadership of the Project Manager,
R.W. Bill' Caldwell, III, they arranged the annexation of
their upscale waterfront project into the City of Gulfport.
Not all Partners wanted to be part of Gulfport as Gulfport
did not have an upscale reputation at that time, but the
two R W. Caldwells prevailed and Pelican Bay became the
largest concentration of upscale housing within the City
of Gulfport.
R.W. Bill' Caldwell, III as Projects Engineer, overseeing
all construction and development of both Pelican Bay and
Pasadena Yacht and Country Club. The Golf Course prop-
erty was in the unincorporated county. U.S. Steel, then
recently renamed USX wanted it to either remain in the
County or to annex into South Pasadena. South Pasade-
na, they felt, had a stronger name and a more upscale im-
age. Bill Caldwell disagreed and worked to change their
minds. In the end, both Bill and Gulfport prevailed. Con-
cerned about aesthetics traveling from the west end, Bill
arranged that the northeast corner of 64th and Gulfport
Boulevard be donated by USX to Gulfport, to be used as a
park. Bill was promoted to Projects Manager in 1983 and
served in that capacity until 1989.
The Three R.W. Caldwells have had a positive and last-
ing effect on Gulfport in many ways more than have been
mentioned here. From Gulfport Beach to annexation of
property that ensures Gulfports well being far into the fu-
ture, the R.W. Caldwells have loved and served Gulfport
well. The family still continues to be a part of the growth
of Gulfport.
Article based on information from Poul Hornsleth. Paul
is Bob and Adele Caldwells son in law and has been mar-
ried to daughter, April for over 40 years. Paul and April
have two children, Poul III and Jody who are 5th genera-
tion Gulfporters.

Zo fom from nt page

the trip was a revelation; seat
belts, air conditioning and
actually comfortable seats. I
was in for an experience.
In order to get as much out
of the field trip as possible,
the traditional kindergarten
classes of Ms. Brody and Ms.
McCord had been studying
birds, mammals and fish for
the past weeks. With animal
tags around their necks to
designate which teacher or
chaperone they would follow,
The kids got to pet goats and a donkey at the Petting the kids boarded the bus
Zoo in Lowry Park Zoo. full of anticipation and huge
smiles. Mr. Martin and I were
the Gorilla group; we had four kids we had to watch and I thought to myself
that should be easy. Famous last words from a woman with no children.
So often, Martin said, issues at home make it difficult for the parent to
concentrate on the child. Unemployment, money issues, health and drug
addiction, divorce or violence in the home are all factors that can stunt the
normal growth of a six year old. If that happens, Martin feels the child has a
harder time of coping with the real world. Some of his stories brought tears to
my eyes; I never realized what some of these kids have gone through.
I was, with Mr. Martin's tutorage, part of the solution. I watched as these
kids stared with wide-eyed wonder at the orangutans, monkeys, elephants,
giraffes, snakes, lizards and birds. They knew the names of the animals and
constantly questioned everything. Yet they were incredibly well-behaved. I
was surprised, but unsure why; I guess I had expected wild children running
amok. But it was clear that these children treasured their time on this trip
and tried to learn all they could. The teachers and parents that chaperoned
were as fascinated with the sites as the kids were and it was a joy to see such
awe in such young faces.
After a quick box lunch we all proceeded to the Petting Zoo, that tangible
part of the trip where the kids were allowed to pet and brush some of the
tamer animals. It was clear that not many of them had ever touched a goat
or a donkey, (who has?) and they were amazingly quiet and gentle with the
animals.
On the ride home, there were some sleepy heads; the kids had missed their
afternoon nap. Waking them and few parents as well, we got home by 2:15 p.m.
I was walking through the school grounds on the way to my car, checking my
camera for possible usable pictures for this story when an extraordinary thing
happened. Most of the children had already walked ahead and there were just
a few stragglers around me. Suddenly I felt a tiny set of arms around me; I
looked down at a face so sweet and guileless, a child who out of spontaneous
love and innocence decided to give this reporter a hug. Several others joined
him and I was soon enveloped in six year olds .As I hugged back, I realized
that kindness has no age definition, and that all a child needs is honesty, love
and respect. Give them that and you get an amazing gift; Joy. It was a lesson I
was only too happy to learn. I drove home with tears in my eyes, struck at the
sheer simplicity and wonderment of it.

Bogie Boys Baseball
Falls to Seminole 5-2
By Leigh Clifton
Admittedly, it's been a tough season
so far for the Bogie
Pirates Baseball
team. They have
one notch chalked
in the win column
in 14 games; not
a strong showing
for sure, but those
numbers 1-13 don't
tell the whole story.
This is a young
team with a young
coach and it's been
taking some time
for them to get used
to one another. But
first- year Coach
Luke Stedrak has
never lost faith in
his boys' abilities to
play the game. He
also has faith that
they'll be putting a
few more notches
in the win column
before the season
ends.
"These boys play
with a lot of heart
and integrity. Relief Pitcher Danni
There's a good Ben Cope on the m
chemistry among
them and I think they have a great
spirit of team unity," he said.
Stedrak has some really talented
kids on his team with a strong bat. #3
Tyler Griffith, who pitches and plays
short stop, is a solid college prospect,


yBish
found.


and is currently hitting.452, according
to the coach. #5 Danny Bishop is a
strong utility player; he pitches, but
plays anywhere when asked. # 13
Matt Cianciolo is turning in a solid
.357 and three boys are hitting at
.286; catcher
Ben Cope, first
baseman Zack
Parisoff and
outfielder Aaron
Brenner. So the
Pirate bats are
functioning,
but they just
need to execute
a tougher,
more effective
a on b defense.
Although the
score might
not reflect it,
Friday night's
game against
Seminole was
actually a close
one and Bogie
came from
behind to lead
until the sixth
inning.Then the
Seminole bats
started taking
advantage of
Zach Mathews'
op confers with Catcher tiring arm.
Danny Bishop
came in as
reliever in the sixth and then Bogie
had their last at bat in the seventh.
With bases loaded, and the tying run
at third, Tyler Griffith went down
swinging hard to leave the Pirates
stranded on base.
There are eight games left in the

Critter Coach Personalized Mobile Pet Grooming for Busy People


By Greg Stemm

I had agreed to interview Karen Mill-
er, owner of Critter Coach mobile pet
grooming at her home. As I walk up
her driveway I am greeted by "Ruby"
- an enthusiastic, friendly bundle of
mixed breed canine with the beauti-
ful bronze colored coat I've ever seen.
It's apparent that Ruby is one pam-
pered pup and one that is very in-
trigued by the smell of dachshunds I
bring to her from my home.
Ruby may not know it, but she isn't
the only dog in Karen's life. In fact,
during the course of a week she sees
dozens of dogs of all shapes, sizes,
breeds and ages through her mobile
grooming business.
"Critter Coach is an outstanding so-
lution for business people who might
not have time to take their dog to a
groomer," said Karen. "We come right
to you...even to your place of business
if that's what you want."
Karen says that because she handles
just one dog at a time at each location
that she has the time to give each pet
special attention, unlike the "groom-
ing mills" at some locations where
volume is more important than indi-
vidual care.
"Some animals get totally freaked
out by going to a groomer, whether
it's me or to a stationary grooming
store," said Karen. "Because I have
the flexibility of working with the an-
imal I can help to settle them down
and make the experience a lot less
traumatic for your pet."
In fact, the comfort of pets is her
number one priority. Her mobile unit
is air conditioned and has a self con.
trained tankless water heater so each
pet gets a nice warm bath. She only
uses all natural products that are
effective, but mild on even the most
sensitive skin and coats.
"Another thing that sets me apart
from some groomers is that I will
handle any breed from the very large
to the tiniest teacup." said Karen.
"And senior dogs are one of my fa-
vorites and a specialty." Karen notes
that senior dogs often require special
care because of hip dysphasia, being
blind or because of a host of different
skin conditions.
Karen graduated from the Academy
of Animal Arts in Largo about a year

Gabber April 2 April 8, 2009


Karen Miller and her best bud "Ruby" show off their mobile grooming trailer. The trailed
features air conditioning, a self contained tankless water heater and a special deck foi
larger dogs. Miller says she grooms any breed of dog and will come to you anywhere,
including your place of business.


ago. She notes with pride that she
was at the top of her class. "I discov-
ered in school that I already knew
the techniques and was practicing
good grooming practices, but it did
help me pick up some tricks of the
trade that make the experience a lot
better for each animal I do. Plus,
having the professional credentials
reassures customers that I really
do know what I'm doing with their
beloved pet."
Karen talks about how each breed
requires an understanding of their
particular traits. "Some breeds you
need to be very loving with...they
like lots of physical touch and for
you to look them in the eye and be
very affectionate. Others are just
the opposite. They want you to be
standoffish and handle them in a
more detached manner. It's just the
nature of different breeds. Some
groomers don't fully understand that
and try to treat each dog the same
way. People are individuals, why
shouldn't dogs be too?"
Karen not only grooms dogs, but
other pets as well. She does some
cats, ferrets, skunks and others and
she even laughs when remembering
that she once groomed an iguana
that was molting. "I clipped its nails
and gave it a bath. It was actually a


very nice animal," she says.
Karen says she is very reasonably
priced...about comparable to going
to a groomer, but without the hassle
of actually having to take your pet
there. She notes that evening hours
and Saturdays are available by ap-
pointment. She uses your water and
electricity while she is there, which
she says she has researched and it
costs less than a dollar combined for
the services she requires. She does
not take credit cards.
Karen grew up in St. Petersburg and
often used to go to Gulfport Beach
when her kids where little. She has
volunteered with the SPCA and used
to foster a number of animals before
she had the grooming business. She
has a little zoo of her own animals in-
cluding five cats, a dog, 2 parrots and
a fresh water fish tank.
"I just want to make the grooming
experience as easy as possible for the
owner and the pet, it's that simple,"
said Karen.

Extravaganza
By Leigh Clifton

The 34th Annual SPIFFS festival (St. Petersburg International Folk
Festival Society) concluded last weekend with Hispanic Day on Sunday.
Local and International recording artist Gumbi Ortiz rocked the main
tent with his Cuban and Jazz fusion and the rapper group Latin
League, who played at the Inauguration, brought their rap sounds and
hip-hop dance to the stage. American Indian brothers Dagonahweeda
Big Mountain and Little Big Mountain brought traditional Comanche
and Mohawk dance. More than 30 countries were represented; the sheer
variety of foods and displays created a cacophony of sounds, smells and
colors to the Vinoy Basin. While Saturday afternoon was a bit difficult
due to high winds, Sunday's weather brought out the crowds, who feasted
on foods from Thailand, Germany, Poland, Laos, Vietnam, Nigeria, Fiji,
and browsed through traditional offerings from the world over.
The Festival serves several purposes; to educate and offer support to
people of the many multi-cultural communities in the Tampa Bay Area
as well as having over 100 individuals handling more than 30 different
languages and dialects who serve as translators and interpreters for
the community in courts, hospitals and schools and assist local city and
county officials with translations for visiting dignitaries, according to
the SPIFFS website.
The festivals always welcome springtraditionin St. Pete; amulti-level
ethnic gathering where the lines of animosity and national separatism
disintegrate, replaced by the joys of music, dance and delicious ethnic
food.
American Indian Dagonahweeda Big Mountain dances tha traditional Indian dance
on the stage at the SPIFFS fair last weekend. He and his brother,Little Big Mountain
travel the country with their movable village, speaking to groups, including the Girl
and Boy Scouts of America, high schools and civic groups on the history and culture

Sammy the Seeing Eye Dog


"Their ability to see service as part of their life-tha they're going
to give up part of their life to be of service-is pretty amazing to
me," Waiter says of the guide dogs and the people who raise the
puppies.
specialized training to start their careers as working dogs.
"You know that you're doing this for a good cause," Walter
says, but adds "you can't look back when you're leaving."
After his first puppy, Ellen, went back to Southeastern Guide
Dogs, Walter would walk around his house looking for the
toys Ellen would leave strewn about the living room, or make
his coffee and think to himself, "It's time to feed Ellen," and
then remember that Ellen didn't live there anymore.
Walter's one of the lucky puppy raisers; handlers at
Southeastern Guide Dogs decided Ellen met the criteria of a
"perfect" dog. That means her behaviors and ability to work
as a guide dog make her more valuable as a breeder than a
working dog.
"I was initially going to give her up," Walter says. When
Southeastern Guide Dogs called him and offered Ellen back to


him, he was delighted. "She was already part of my family."
So now Walter's raising Sammy, who already knows she's
different than other dogs.
"She understands that other dogs are dogs and she's a
working dog. When she's in the vest she does pretty good,"
When she's not wearing the vest all bets are off and Sammy,
still infinitely more well-behaved than any other lab puppy,
goes from Sammy, Working Dog to Sammy, Super Puppy. She
runs through her yard at breakneck speed, wags her tail, and
acts like any other puppy.
Right now work consists of outings to places like Publix
or Blockbuster and afternoon sessions in the vest working
on commands such as "sit", "stay", "heel" and right and
left commands. If she could only master the "down under"
command Sammy would be almost all set, but she still
struggles. She is, after all, still very much a puppy. One day
after Walter gives her up he will go to Southeastern Guide
Dogs and see her one last time with her new companion and
see how his efforts helped someone he's never met.
Walter has two reasons for raising guide dog puppies. The
first thing he mentions is that he always wanted a dog.
"I lived on a boat-an Islander 37-for years and I always
wanted a dog. I traveled with work and regularly left the boat
for a week or two at a time," he says. Now he lives in a house
in doesn't work so he has time for a dog.
Why a guide dog puppy?Why not go to the pound and get one
of any assorted delightful mixed breed puppies?
Walter is slowly but quite definitely going blind.
He has macular degeneration, a fancy medical term for
"going blind" and he knows that one day he will need a guide
dog himself. Right now it's classified him as disabled, but he's
only lost some of his vision. He can't see details in my face or
drive, but he can still see to take his boat out on Boca Ciega
Bay. That will not always be the case.
In August 2006 his vision deteriorated enough that he had
to quit work. Shortly after that he took in Ellen, the seeing
eye puppy who graduated to breeder and lives with him full
time.
When his vision fails him, his guide dog won't. When his
time comes for a guide dog, Sammy will long ago have moved
in with a new family and Ellen won't work for him; but some
other family somewhere will have taken in a puppy, put her
in a vest a few times a day, and taught her the basics for the
life of the working dog. After almost two years they'll give
the puppy back to Southeastern Guide Dogs, where she'll get
evaluated and trained and sent to live with Walter.
One day after that Southeastern Guide Dogs will invite
Walter down to their offices where he and his new companion
will meet the people who raised her and loved her first and
gave her away so Walter could have her.
"It's pretty amazing to me, to raise this dog just so a blind
person can have this freedom," Walter admits. "Maybe I'm
paying it forward."

POWERFUL PRAYER TO HOLY SPIRIT -
Holy Spirit, you who solves all problems, who
lights all roads so that I can attain my goal, you
who give me the divine gifts to forgive and for-
get all evil against me and that in all instances
of my life you are with me, I want in this short
prayer to thank you for all things and confirm
once again that I never want to be separated
from you, even in spite of all material illusions.
I wish to be with you, in eternal glory. Thank
you for your mercy toward me andmine.
G.B.


NEVER FAILING PRAYER TO ST. MICHAEL
- St. Michael, the Archangel, Defend Us In
Battle; Be Our Defense Against the Wicked-
ness and Snares of the Devil. May God Re-
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
lose 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 AbleTo 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 rayer is to be Said 9 Tuesdays, in Suc-
cession and Each Tuesday a Candle Shal
Be Lighted and a Copy of This Prayer Lft in
the Church to Help Another Soul in Distress
and Support the Devotion to St. Michael. This
Miraculous Saint Grants Everything, No Mat-
ter How Difficult, Before the Termination of 9
Tuesday. G.F

PRAYER TO THE BLESSED VIRGIN (Never
Known to Fail) Oh, most beautiful flower of
Mount Carmel, fruitful vine splendor of Heav-
en. Blessed Mother of the Son of God, Immac-
ulate Virgin, assist me in my necessity. Oh Star
of the Sea, help me and show me here you
are my mother. Oh Hoy Mary Mother of God,
Queen of Heaven and Earth, humbly beseech
you from the bottom of my heart to secure me
into my necessity (make request). There are
none that can withstand your power. Oh Mary,
conceived without sin, pray for us who have
recourse to thee (3) times. Holy Mary I place
this cause in your hands (3) times. Say this
prayer for three consecutive days and then
you must publish and it will be granted to you.
C.T.








Thanks for all my presents, money and
food. Mostly thanks to all my special
friends who show me love everyday.

You are the Greatest!
