ment of Justice Con irmnty grant
that wil fund three police officers, m-
cludmg one full-ttne marine officer


The grant will fund the officers for

to fundig the officers for the follow-
ing three years
"If you look out sx or seven years
from now, we wdl be hang officers
reting or possibly leaving or going
to otherpositions Thls is an opporu-
nity as professional staff we have
now gets older, goes mto retirement,
well have people already m place,"
Vice Mayor Bob Worthlmgton satd



Clarification
Last week The Gabber ran a
headline that, to some, suggested
that Gulfport City Attorney Tim
Driscoll had been arrested The
headline referred to Attorney
Doss, who practiced in Gulfport,
not city attorney Tim Driscoll
The Gabber apologizes to its
readers, the city of Gulfport, and,
most heartily, city attorney Tim
Driscoll who remains m good
standing with the Florida Bar as
well as local, state and federal
law enforcement agencies

Swing from front page
Gulfport was swngin' like crazy
to the fabulous Juke Joint Kings
at the Gulfport Casino last Friday
might As part of the ongoing themed
dances offered at the Casino, last
Friday might was Swing Night,
6-11 pm with an hour-long free
Swing Dance lesson offered by dance
pros More than 100 people showed
up to shake and strut their stuff
on the Casino dance floor, many
bringing their own dance shoes in
bags slung over their shoulders
Remimscent of the late afternoon
tea dances of the '50s, the ladies
were "swellegant," in flared skirts
and ghttering skirts that swirled
as they did rapid-fire turns The
men swaggered around the tables
sizng each other up Once the
band cranked up, couples paired up
and the whole dance floor began to
shake Age was no consideration, 20
year olds danced with 70 year olds
and there was every combination in
between
Some couples had obviously danced
together for quite some time Some
were married, some came for the
social aspect, and some came just to
dance the might away with anyone
who wanted to dance Although
there was a full service hquor bar,
the most appreciated beverage was
the bottled water, everyone worked
up quite a thirst by the time they
had shlmmed and strutted, twirled
and dipped across the dance floor
The evemng ended with a dance
contest and subsequent dance off
with the audience noise determmmng
the winners, who won free passes to
the next week's dance
The Gulfport Casino offers different


types of dancing almost every night
of the week For info on the Swing
dances, check out www Swingtime

By LeghCifo


Ethan VanSlyke, 3, Gulfport: "I
go to church and then pick up all the
eggs in the basket. I have to look for
them in the grass, and there might
be toys inside my eggs. Maybe candy,
like vanilla chocolate. The Easter
Bunny brings the eggs. I already ate
a egg today, it was scrammed! But I
want chicken nuggets for Easter din-

Andy York: "My wife and I just
moved here about six months ago
from Charlotte North Carolina, so
this will be our first Easter here.
We usually used to go to my mom's.
I know my wife will make us got to
church at St. Alban's for the Easter
Sunday service. Then we'll do an
Easter egg hunt for the kids at home.
The kids will get their Easterbaskets.
We don't have any other family here.
I'm sure my wife will make ham
and green beans and other stuff. I
also hope she makes chocolate chip
cookies with extra chocolate chips,
because it's Easter!"

Michelle Fithian, schoolteacher
on Spring Break from Catskills,
N.Y.: "I'm here in Gulfport for the
week. When I get back home, I'll be
going to my sister's for the day on
Sunday. There'll be about 20-25 peo-
ple, with family and friends. We used
to have four generations for the hoh-
days, but my father recently passed
away, so now we have three. My sis-
ter has a big stone wall in her back
yard, so she always hkes to hide Eas-
ter eggs inside of it. While the kids
play, the adults are playing too. We
play yard games like the ball toss,
Fnsbee, horseshoes, stuff like that. At
dinner, my sister and her fiance are
usually the ones cooking; he hkes to
help her in the kitchen and is a good
cook. We usually have a turkey and a
ham, mashed potatoes, (we're Irish),
and the usual standard fare. But for
dessert we always have apple pie; my
father loved apple pie so we'll have
one in his honor, of course. We might
have a lemon meringue too; after all it
is spring, even if the weather in New
York is kind of nasty right now. Then
we'll just all hang out, maybe take a
walk around the neighborhood after
chnner... it's very low key. It will be
tough to leave Gulfport, though. It's
my first time here and I really love it
here..."

Anyone for a
Sunday Market?
Dear Editor: I was driving by the
shopping center at 49th St. and 22nd
Ave. S. at 9:30 a.m. To my shock, I
noticed only four cars in the park-
ing lost. I assumed the cars belonged
to the people manning the existing
stores. It seemed to me as a "ghost
town" ready to happen.
So I have a suggestion to revive this
part of Gulfport by creating a Sun-
day Market in the parking lot of this
property with fresh vegetables, food
vendors, etc. To my knowledge, there
are no markets in the area on Sun-
day. This would create business for
vendors and a place to purchase items
after church hours on Sunday.
This is a win-win situation. After
Easter, many snowbirds go back up
north. Think about what happens
then.
The location is ideal and the property
is ready for something to happen.

Concentration of
Burglaries Concerning
Dear Editor: Lately, anyone keep-
ing track of recent burglaries in the
area bordering 28th Ave. S. to 30th
Ave. S. from approximately 57th St.
to Beach Blvd. as reported weekly in
the Gabber, would conclude there is a
problem beyond "random" infrequent
incidents. If these burglaries were
pinpointed on a map, just during the
past eight weeks, it would appear as
a heavy cluster in this approximate
4-6 block area.
One homeowner, year round resi-
dent, who was a victim in mid-Jan-
uary, out of fear, has not returned
to her home since. This very house
was again burglarized sometime on
the night of March 30. The intruder
blatantly chiseled and pried open the
front entrance which is located just
a few feet away from the street. As a
resident, I received notification from
the police that the above burglary
had been committed because it was

dots" it appears that this quiet, little
section of Gulfport is going through
an epidemic.
Are the Gulfport police doing any-
thing beyond responding and react-
ing to these as individual incidents?
Are there similarities or patterns? Is
the neighborhood being targeted by
someone or individuals who are fa-
miliar with the area? Does the timing
suggest that someone or individuals
have recently moved into the area
and find it easy pickings?
I write this to alert residents in the
area and ask that they police patrol
the area more frequently. Hopefully
with good old fashion police work
and neighbors who are vigilant in
their crime watch, we will break this
cycle.

Deepest Appreciation

appreciation to all the people who
made Sal's "Celebration of Life" such
a wonderful turnout. Special thanks
and gratitude to Lori Rosso for a
very lovely ceremony and beautiful
eulogy, to Sherrye and her staff at

done, to the town of Gulfport thank
you for caring and loving Sal as much
as we did.
A special thank you to the fishermen
who gave up their space for us. You
know who you are. Again, thank
you.
With deepest sorrow and loving
hearts,

Your Personal
Injury Rights
(Part 2)
In our last article, we explored ba-
sic coverage issues for personal inju-
ry protection (PIP) benefits. In this
article, medical payments/benefits
and certain exclusions to PIP cover-
age will be examined.
MEDICAL PAYMENTS
PIP pays eighty percent (80%) of
the medical benefits for reasonable
and necessary expenses for surgery,
medical services, x-rays and reha-
bilitative services. Reasonable and
necessary hospital, ambulance and
nursing case services are similarly
covered. Wheelchairs, neck braces,
splints and crutches are also nor-
mally covered.
DISABILITY BENEFITS
PIP coverage compensates a named
insured for sixty percent (60%) of
disability benefits for loss in income


and a loss of earning capacity which
results because of an injury sus-
tained in a motor vehicle accident.
Disability benefits also cover other
expenses for household services
which, but for the motor vehicle-
related injury, the injured person
would normally perform.
EXCLUSIONS
An insurance company may deny
PIP benefits to someone who oper-
ates a motor vehicle without the
consent of an insured. Similarly, an
insurance company may prohibit
benefits to be paid to someone who
is injured while driving a motor ve-
hicle if: (1) they are injured while
committing a felony or (2) injuries
occur when a person intentionally
causes injury to himself/herself.
PIP BENEFIT PAYMENTS
When reasonable proof of a loss
and expenses are provided to an
insurance company, PIP benefits
are payable as losses are incurred.
Generally, PIP benefits are primary
coverage over other insurance cov-
erages. However, workers' compen-
sation coverage may be primary in
some circumstances. PIP benefit
payments are required to be paid
within a thirty (30) day period after
an insurance company receives writ-


ten notice of a covered loss that is
adequately documented with the to-
tal amount of the claim.

By Matthew Margolis

Till Dog Do You Part
For the longest time and for reasons
that escape me, this column used
to be titled "Dogs, Cats and Other
People." Not a week went by where
I wasn't lambasted by some flum-
moxed cat person with a bone to pick
over my gross neglect of fehnes. Who
could blame 'em? Bad title.
And now, with the column at last
more aptly named "Dog Talk With
Uncle Matty," I finally have cause to
advise a cat person:
"Here's my problem, and I hope you
can help me out. My wife recently
said to me, We need to get a dog.' But
if you feed that through the transla-
tion matrix, the actual thing she said
to me was, We should get a dog so
I can dump 100 percent of the work
and care of a dog on you.'
"The main issue is that I hate dogs.
I'm a cat person. I love cats and have
three. They don't smell bad, they
cuddle in my lap, and they sleep 16
hours a day. Before I was married,
a then-girlfriend of mine and I got
a dog. I ended up hating the thing
because, as a puppy, he soiled the
house at every step. As an adult dog


he destroyed everything in sight. I
know, you say 'dogs need training.'
And they do. But I'm not the person
to give the dog training, as you can
see. My wife, who wants to get a dog,
also wants to dump all of the work on
me, someone who hates dogs. Do you
see what's going to happen next?
"How can I convince my wife that I
don't have the time for a dog?"
My advice: Show her this letter.
Print it out or cut it out of the news-
paper, and leave it on her pillow. Tell
her to give as much weight to your
words as to mine, and Uncle Matty
says under no circumstances should
either you or your wife get a dog.
That is unless your marriage vows
were "for better or worse, till dog do
we part."
My intent is not to be unfeeling to-
ward his wife's desires, but rather to
spare a pup from the cold environ-
ment of an absentee "mother" and a
cat-loving "father." If animal adop-
tions were as carefully considered as
human adoptions, these two would
never make it past the initial home
visit. And that's not because they
couldn't, as individuals, become good
parents," but because they aren't, as
a couple, on the same team.

I'll give credit where credit is due,
though. At least Hubby has the good
sense and decency to recognize his
limitations.
Dogs need and deserve love and lots
of it. But love isn't enough. They re-
quire time, patience and training on
top of all that love. It's the time and
patience put into training that will
prevent a recurrence of Hubby's pre-
vious unpleasant living conditions --
not the love.
While his wife may feel a love that
knows nobounds for all canes, great
and small, it sounds as though her
time constraints are much greater
and her attention span much small-
er. For a true happily ever after, she
ought to instead consider joining the
other team. They can be ornery, but
for the most part cat people aren't all
that bad.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). When
you give as much as you do to an
endeavor, it's challenging to stay
unattachedto the outcome. However,
you will notice this week that you
can't control everything and that
you wouldn't want to anyway. Stress
goes away because you resolve to do
your part and then let go. Life will
surprise and awe you.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). What
would you like to see happen in your
relationships that would make you
feel loved? Figure it out and give
it to yourself instead of waiting for
another person to provide it. Others
will soon echo your fine treatment
of yourself, contributing the things
that bring you comfort, security and
pleasure.
GEMINI (May21-June 21). Between
your family, work, faith, friends and
community, you are involved in
many different social circles. One
group stands out as being extremely
important and enjoyable lately. You
would miss it if it weren't a part of
your life. Do everything you can tobe
an effective member of that team.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). If
you don't understand why people
behave as they do, you're not alone.
You'll have to work extra hard
at listening in order to set things
right with the world. One loved one
in particular is having a difficult
time communicating. You'll hear
his person clearly when you do not
anticipate what is going to be said.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). If you find
yourself obsessing on the way others
are acting, it's a sign that you need to
do what's necessary to change your
focus. Maybe you need to have a talk,
change your agreements or decide on
a different kind of relationship. Do
what needs doing, and do it quick.
Don't let problems fester. Handle
them fast.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You'll
be part of a team. You must rely on
both your offense and defense. Stay


aware of each person's talents. There
is a delicate balance here. Seize your
chance to be the star, but only when
you're sure it's your turn. Realize
when to back down and let your
teammate make the winmmng move.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). There
are certain rules that you follow,
even though you have no idea what
purpose your comphance will serve.
You will be filled with curiosity this
week, and you might be moved to
pursue a better understanding of
the structures by which you bhndly
abide. What you learn will help you
to act with greater purpose.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You'd
like to discuss where a relationship
is headed. You may be worried that
the other person will be surprisedby
your feelings and not in a good way.
Put off this conversation until next
week -- you'll understand your heart
more clearly then. Concentrate on
treating yourself well. Everything
will resolve for the best.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21).
The people who are supposed to be
in your support system may seem
to have the opposite effect, draiimng
your energy. Try not to take on too
much. Be a little more selfish with
your time, doing the things you
want to do. After you make yourself
happy, you'll find that you like other
people better.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19).
You're fascinating, it's true. Your
friends, family and colleagues will
ask you for more juicy details about
your life this week, and you'll come
up with one tantalizing story after
another. It's important that you
reciprocate social generosity. Be
careful not to imagine that your
travails are the only important
ones.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). It
would be prudent to imagine the
history of a relationship in a new
light. Things haven't always been
smooth. Think about what your sign

mate Puhtzer Prize winner Wallace
Stegner once wrote: "Most things
break, including hearts. The lessons
of hfe amount not to wisdom, but to
scar tissue and callus.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You
could be caught in a power struggle.
To come out a winner in this one it
will be necessary to see the situation
from the other person's perspective.
Figure out what he or she is afraid
of and also what really might be
gained. Reduce your opponent's fear,
andhe or she will soften. You prevail
through compassion.
This Week's Birthdays: Your
ambitions will be embraced by
the powers that be. You are apt to
think of ways to help other people
succeed, and in the process you
will be promoted. Lucky events
happen after you attend a seminar,
convention or exposition. You'll get
to know an intriguing someone in
June. Your priorities shift in the fall,
and you may decide that you need
to relocate or retrain in order to
pursue new horizons. Celebrations
in August, October and December
will be sweetly memorable.

Blooms of Spring
By Luba Robinson
Members of the Treasure Island
Art Guild continue their exhibit
at the Community Center through
mid-May. This week we highlight
the work of Arlene Kitchin and El-
eanor Pence.
Arlene Kitchin, a watercolor art-
st, originally from Nova Scotia,
treats us to a world of boating and
an excellent composition in "My
Son the Windsurfer" which trans-
ports the viewer into a blustery
day. The softness of Catamaran"
successfully brings us to a place of
repose. "Lunch" shows dramatic
value contrasts as the stoic egret
prepares to chow down. Arlene
shows her versatility, shifting from
the traditional to the contemporary
in "Saturday Night".
As a teacher and student of exten-
sive training, Eleanor Pence exhib-
its four acrylic paintings. Two por-
traits, Ms. Florida Senior" and
"Lady in Green", exude brilliant
color and luminosity. A thought
provoking sculpture in Vinoy Park,
downtown St. Petersburg, was her
inspiration for "Truth". The flow-
ing red ribbons in "Celebration"
enjoy a striking contrast against
a pristine snowscape. They are
placed on a lamp post to signify
special occasions, a long-term fam-
ily tradition.
Don't miss this exhibit at the
Community Center located on
106th Avenue just east of Gulf
Boulevard. Please call the Recre-
ation department, 547-4575, ext.
238, for hours of operation.

Gulfport Beach March Water Quality Report

By Cathy Salustrl
Each week the City of Gulfport tests the water quality
i the waters off Gulfport Beach Gulfport has contracted
wth the City of St Petersburg for the tests
Every month The Gabber publishes the results of those
tests If, at any time, the tests show that the water qual-
ity poses a health risk, the City of Gulfport will issue a
Health Advisory Gulfport typically receives test results
within a week of taking the sample
Currently, the City tests for two things enterococcus and
fecal conform Scientists consider enterococcus a common
bacteria found in animal and human intestmines, and, re-
sultingly, in human and animal excrement Federal stan-
dards used to require agencies to measure water quality
by the amount of fecal conform along pubhc beach waters
but recently have replaced fecal coliform with entemcoc
cus as the standard Fecal cohform also comes from the Sample Enterococcus FecalCoform
waste of warm-blooded animals, including humans o
The City of Gulfport currently tests for both types of bac-
teria Test results will help classify Gulfport Harbor as March 3 22 7
"good", "moderate", or "poor" Enterococcus of less than 35 March 10 2 7
parts per 100 mllilhhter and fecal conform of less than 199 March 17 4 7
per 100 milihter of saltwater indicate good water qual-
ty For more information, contact the City of Gulfport at March 24 2 7

By Bill Northrop
T here a cartoon nmalng
the e-mail rounds depicting
president Obama scatterng
dollar bills around the streets A
smilng man is watchmg tlis while
ins wife wryly observes, "He's got
your wallet"
Pnor to that, I kmnd of felt hke
someone left open the U S Treasury
vault, or that the wild boars had
gotten mto the garden, or that the
pigs were rootig m the garbage
Pick your owna age
First it was the $700 bilhon cnsis
bank rscue plan proposed by the
Bush adnmistration Congress asked
for a bnef delay so that they could
skunoff couple billionforearmarks
Those are supposedly for important
congressional district causes Both
presidential candidates, McCan and
Obama approved
Then came the nearly $800 bllhon
stimulus bill that no one read It
dehberately providedforthe payment
of the AIG bonuses Only Democrats
voted for it, but not until poltlclans
of both parties scooped up several


on my mind

blhons m earmarks
When the AIG bonus became
pubhc then the admunstratlon and
Democrats andRepubhcansreactedm
horror Even then, no one mentioned
that most of the bonuses went to
workers who actually made money
for the big msurance company
Now comes a budget that will m
10 years increase the total U S debt
four tunes what it is now and that
mcludes the $700 blhon bailout plus
the $800 bilhon stimulus plan In
simpler terms your per household
debt is now $8,000 It will nse to
$32,000, and that is if the economy
grows aggressively
It supposedly will solve all the
national problems of education,
energy and health Six hundred
blhon is pvrovded as down payment
on "refonrmng" health care That's
m addition to the $19 billon in the
stunulus bill to be used to nplement
an electromc everyones registered)
all-inclusive medical system Green
energy will be enhanced by a cap and
trade or carbon tax system Agamn


TV Pf nRliA QAIFnn =


in simple terms, it means all energy
users (that means you) wll be taxed
to pay for green energy I don't know
how the education and health care
programs nill be paid for except
that those earning $200,000 or more
are gomg to be big contributors
Unfortunately, there rent enough
of themtocoverit
Anyway, we're talklg about dollars
in the trnhons I was having a hard
time grasping how much a bilhon
dollars was So how much is it? A
bilhon is 1000 nmlhon But, a tilhon
is 1000 bilhon dollars Visualze this
f you laid one dollar bills end-to-end
they would stretch nearly to the sun
That's 94,000,000 nnles Or it would
pay for 20,000,000 jobs at $50,000
each, or buy 5,000,000 homes at
$200,000 each We're talkmg about
only one tldhon dollars m our
example
However, we're talkmg about a
2009-2010 budget of $3 6 trhon and
a debt of 12 5 tnrllon dollars (wntten
$12,500,000,000,000) over the next
10 years
Thats heavy math, folks, and that's
without any wars, catastrophes,
terronst attacks, econonmc down
turns along the way m the next 10
years And, it's all directed and
controlled by polltlcans
Oh, by the way, we have to borrow
all that money from someone
Thnmk Chma That means interest
on the debt, just hke a mortgage
Remember, as the federalgovernment
has already demonstrated to General
Motors and Chrysler, if you hold the
purse str gs you control the purse
After that, thlnk taxes

Red Means Stop
The flushed, red faces of some drink-
ers could be a sign they're at greater
risk of throat cancer, say researchers
at the National Institute on Alcohol
Abuse and Alcoholism.
The flushing response, which can be
accompanied by nausea and a rapid
heartbeat, is primarily caused by an
inherited deficiency in an enzyme
called ALDH2, which results in dif-
ficulties in metabolizing alcohol and
an accumulation of toxic acetalde-
hyde in the body.
That toxic buildup may lead to
squamous cell esophageal cancer,
said Dr. Philip J. Brooks, which can
be surgically treated. The survival
rate, however, is very low.
Moderate drinking increases the
risk, but heavy consumption is es-
pecially problematic. An ALDH2-


deficient person who has two beers
a day is six to 10 times more likely
to develop esophageal cancer than a
person not deficient in the enzyme.
ALDH2 deficiency is a trait
shared by more than one-third of
people of East Asian ancestry (Japa-
nese, Chinese, Korean).
BEST MEDICINE
A surgeon was checking on a patient
who had a hernia operation three
days earlier. The doctor asked the
man why he hadn't yet gotten out of
bed.
"I hurt," answered the patient. "You
don't know how it feels."
"Yes I do," replied the doctor. "I had
the same procedure last month, and
I was back at work two days later.
There's no difference in our opera-
tions."
"Oh yes there is," said the patient.
"You had a different surgeon."

OBSERVATION
What we feel and think and are is
to a great extent determined by the
state of our ductless glands and vis-
cera. -- British writer Aldous Huxley
PHOBIA OF THE WEEK
Gephysrophobia -- fear of crossing

BODY OF KNOWLEDGE
Palak Vyas of Great Britain is be-
lieved to have managed the world's
quickest recorded birthing. She was
in labor just 2 minutes, giving birth
to a healthy 7-pound, 2-ounce daugh-
ter after just one push.
GET ME THAT. STAT!
A new British study of 900,000
adults found that even moderate obe-
sity, defined as a body mass index of
30 to 35, takes two to four years off
life expectancy. Severe obesity cuts
eight to 10 years.

Local Sailing Phenom wins the 28th Annual Prestigious Michelob Cup


By Leigh Clifton

Bruce Bmgham learned to sail before he could walk The
son of a Naval ar tect, he hterally grew up in the boat-
yards, his father bumlt the family an apartment over top of
the ship buldmg factory, complete with a skyhght m the
floor that afforded not only a view for his father to check on
hns workers progress, but a convement hole where young
Bruce would throw toys and junk, provoking his fathers
disapproval more than once But the designer bug was m
his DNA and Bruce designed his first boat at age 8, a 10-
foot mahogany wood boat that would be the portent of the
future, later as a boat designer and then protege of legend-
ary yachtsmanand boat bmlder Charhe Morgan here m St
Pete
Fast forward a few years and Buce was racmg on other
people's boats competitively, perhaps a bit too competitie-
ly
For some reason, maybe because I'm a perfectionist, I be-
came a really mean Captam and I was really hard and very
demandmg on my crews After a while, I decided to qmt rac-
ing all together, because I didnt like who I was turng ito
So I became a crser, someone who sails on trips around
the Carbbean and the Islands "
Bruce hves aboard Nikkh, a 38 year old 28 ft Cape Dory,
a small, compact boat that he's taken pretty much every-
where He hves locally on the water m Gulfport and has
been a member of Boca Clega Yacht Club for a few years
But that old competitive spit had found its way back to
Bruces heart and he began racing again And then the Mh-
chelob Cup beckoned
Most people thk I'm a racer but Im really a c ser who
hkes to race," Bruce smles
With s standard crew of Sean Ness, Ban Brownsel,
and fend BDll Morse, Bmgham conrnced them all that
acht Club Michelob Cup
i II.I i a mas beat, Blruce
knows every ch ofher and keeps her finely tuned (Did I
mention the perfectomst part), so he felt he and Ins crew
would be prepared for almost anythmg
hO race day, Saturday Marh 28th, the weather was pre-

am one ofthose "boat people," as
I thmk someone called them at
a Gulfport city council meeting
a few years back No, I don't live
on a boat and no, I don't own a boat
but yes, I love being on boats and
yes, I beheve Gulfport's history is
so enmeshed with the water that
the narrow-mnded dlsmssal of a
moonng field by an ehte few with a
pecular agenda is a bastardization
of the political process and a stellar
example of manpulatmg government
for one's own good rather than the
good of the people
Does that make my bias clear
enough for everyone concerned'
Good
See, Im in a tough spot here I've
covered the moorg field smce its
first appearance as part of the city's
Comprehensive Harbor Management
Plan m 2004 and will continue to do
so But I've reached my threshold
of how many hes I hear about the
maria and the moorng field before
it becomes fodder for this column
I crossed that threshold a couple of
weeks agoatthemarmns fleamarket
Someone approached me and started
spitting out hes about the moorng
field and how the city would lose
money andneverfillthe shps andthe
marmnawamsmanaged and and,
well, Im certain they said more but I
stopped listening
I stopped hstemng because I heard
it all before at election time and
before you beheve what any political
hopeful may tell you to impress you
with his or her knowledge of budgets
and before you join the stampede to
make the manna and moorng field
the popular dog to kick, consider
this
The Gulfport Mmcipal Manna is
the reason that every property owner
m the city doesn't pay higher ad
valorem taxes Although the elected
officials suggest tax cuts and vote for
lower taxes (when you're an elected
official ins pretty much political
smucide to do otherwise the reason
that Gulfport can actually do that is
because the ma a is the goose and
Gcbber April 9 -April 15, 2009


the boats her golden eggs As manas
statewide suffocate under a blanket
of cooke-cutter condos the ones that
remain reap the benefits
Right now the city manna has
a waiting hst for its smaller slips,
none of its larger shps avlable,
and six or seven 40' shps available
If we had a moorng field--hen we
have a moorng fieldsome of those
boats could go to the moorg field,
or maybe some of the boats m the
marna would jump at the chance
to move to le expensive mooing
and open up spots m the manna As
long as the marina s turmng away
boats for lack of space no one can
successfully large that the moorng
field would sit empty
I don't know how a moor g field
could be unsafe, which is the other
argument Ive heard Right now
Gulfporthas the equivalent ofa whte
trashboatgraveyardburgeormngjust
off the beach Dont mmsunderstand,
some of the boats anchored on the
Gulfport ide of Boca Clega Bay
remain well mamtaled and securely
anchored, but not all of them One
made t up to the beach this week
as I understand it So those of you
who oppose the moorng field on
safety grounds, please tell me how
a moorig ball properly secured to
the bottom makes for a dangerous
alternative to throwing all manners
of anchors m a sand bottom and
hoping they hold Councile heard and

votig m favor of a moormg field
Speaking of council, it has only one
active opponent of the moonng field,
Michele King, and while I hke Michele
very much, I've watched her allow
emotion to cloud her thinkmg about
issues when she feels passionately
Does King want what she beheves
is best for Gulfport I believe she
does, but I also beheve people with
their own less-than-noble agendas
try to manipulate her emotions for
their means not related to the best
interest of the city but perhaps their
busmess
These people disgustme, but I beheve
that King is smarter than they thmk
she is and defimtely smarter than
any of them I also beheve she will do
what the majonty of her constituents
ask of her rather than heed the bitter
vituperative of a disingenuous few
Other than that group I suspect
the biggest opponents of the moonng
field simply do not want to look out
on the bay and see boats These folks
need to check their history and then
look towards the future
Gulfport started as a fishmg town,
and from Civil War blockade runners
to the Aylesworths to Tropical Island
Getaways, Gulfport's legacy is built
on the water It's what sustams
the city now and what Gulfport can
bank on in the future If you reject
the moorig field because you don't
want to look out and see boats, might
I suggest that one of our fine Realtors
put you m touch with one of their
offices m Colorado, Iowa, or another
such state9
Because, qute honestly, Gulfport's
a fishmg village all grown up, but
its still a fishig village and if you
don't get that, you don't get Gulfport
at all

Nancy Cervenka making art from discarded film


Nancy Cervenka prepares her ad
Gallery later this month
By Leigh Clifton

Film has many defimtions
a movie, a layer or coatming, a
sheet, to record orcaptwe on
film, to take a picture, using
a coated strop or sheet of cel-
lulose with a hght-sensitve
emulsion Most arti. s who
work m film either work
with it as a photographer or
videographer a movle direc-
tor or journahst Even the
most creative artist would
be hard-pressed to have
rendered yet another use
as mintensely umque as the
creations of Gulfport art-
ist Nancy Cervenka With
a Masters of Fine Arts in
Cmematography from USF,
Nancy started her career as


a filmmaker, but through


enamored of the film mate-
nal itself than ofts content
"I really hked the feel of
the film and the emulsion,
which is dehcate and eas-
dy scratched," she said "I
startednoticing the way the
hght would catch the umm-
muages on the film surface
as I would feed it through
a projector There were tiny
flashes of color and look-
mg closely at t, I reached
that the film could actually
be an artists tool to create
sculptures wth soI ta-
ed rolling the filh m my
fingers and the sculptures


took on a life of their own
Originally Nancy started
out with small pieces, mak-
ng sculptures of 8mm,
16imm and 35mm film
left over from the cutting
room floor Several director
friends and fellow vdeogra-
phers started bringg her
their leftovers from their
film projects, mounds of
celluloid m every size and
color One local director
gave her a bunch of surplus
film from a movie filmed m
St Petersburg Nancy actu-
ally knew some of the actors
on the footage, which she
said makes her art have
a dstinctly personal feel
The film and its emulsion
themselves have dastmc-
tive colors, to create texture
and more color, Nancy will
scratch the film, bleach it,
color it with Sharples or
colored pens The bleach-
ing or scrapmg can pro-
duce beautiful yellows and
greens, certam other types
of film produce vivid blues
and browns Old mdustrial
film emts a pmkish glow
"Vanous emulsions wiroll
have different colors when
they hit the water," she
said "After I wash them,
if s always a surpnse to
see what color comes up
After Nancy has the color
she wants, either by paint-
ing, scraping, bleachmg or
staying, she then will roll
the film, starting with the
point, wrappmg t into itself
until a 'horn or, flh sculp-
ture is formed To stabihze
the piece, she uses glue or
polyurethane, pourmg it
inside the piece to form a
protective ntelror shell on
the cellulose This keeps
the sculpture firm, but still
very hght-weight She has
been sculpting with film
sice 1980, only takmg time


off to have her two daugh-
ters, who are now grown
"Home Depot is my play-
ground," she laughs "I use
a lot of wire, tapes, copper
elbows, whatever I see that
strikes my munagonaton "
She will even use tape or
staples to hold a piece to-
gether, such as her wearable
art, which won Best of Show
at the Gaspanlla Art Fest
this year, along with a well-
deserved prze of $15,000
She has won Best of Show
twice at the Mainsal Arts
Festival as well One of her
dresses is made entirely of
shdes, culled from a plastic
surgeons trash, "before"
pictures of people wantmg
to be beautiful It was out
of these pictures that her
beautiful clothing art was
made Nancy scratched
out the faces, but left the
colors of the slides to show
through, staplmg the shdes
together to form a dress It
is a stunmng piece m its
smplicity Her Gaspanlla
Best of Show art is a black
two-piece top and skirt
The top is woven small film
strops, the bottom pinched
cellulose with wrapped tape
and black paint Amazing,
nspured, innovative
Nancy will be premoer-
ng a new show of her a
at the C Emerson Fme
Arts Gallery, 909 Central
Avenue from Aprl 11-May
30 Included will be several
large area mstallations,
