Inside this week... No. 2102 April 30, 2009 May 6, 2009 A Neighborhood UnitesBy Leigh Clifton Family members of Paris Whitehead-Hamilton, including her aunt Shenita Williams-Joseph,(center with st) marched with hundreds of supporters Saturday morning in an effort to mobilize the Bartlett Park area of St. Petersburg. Eight year old Paris was gunned down two weeks ago in her aunts home when four teenagers from the neighborhood shot 57 bullets from an assault rie at the house. Police suspect the shooting was the result of a long-standing feud between the teens and one of Paris family members. See Story page 30 Seven Seas Cruising Makes Gulfport Homeby Leigh Clifton Gulfport looked more like Newport, Rhode Island this weekend as almost 50 sailors and 17 boats belonging to the Seven Seas Cruising Association sailed into town. With the Citys permission, the sailors anchored right off of Gulfport Beach and rode dinghies in to the municipal dock. As part of their cruising program, See Cruising, page 20 Members of the Seven Seas Cruising Association enjoy a late afternoon the pavillion on Gulfport Beach. More than 50 sailors from as far away as Maine sailed into Gulfport for the weekend. 22% Sewer Rate Increase On the second reading of Ordinance 2009-05, the their vote to raise the citys water rates 7.75% and sewer rates 22%. This is necessary to replenish and maintain our existing fund balance in these enterprise funds. OReilly explained at the last council meeting. The reason for the increase? Because Gulfport purchased water from St. Petersburg the city may not resell the water or sewer services for less than what St. Petersburg sells those services to its other customers. This is not a 22% increase in the total bill, just the sewer portion, Councilman Sam Henderson explained. He also added that he looked at the sewer portion of his bill and the rate increase represented less than $10 for one of his bills.Dining Out For LifeTonight in Tampa Bay see page 6Waterfront Trolley Map Now Availablesee page 8U.S. Rep.

John Lewis of Georgia will speak to more than 250 graduates of Stetson University College of Law on May 16 at 9 a.m. at 1401 61 Street S. in Gulfport. Rep. Lewis is a lifelong advocate of civil liberties who played a leading role in passing the Voting Rights Act and in ending segregation in America. Born to sharecroppers in Alabama, Lewis attended segregated schools and was inspired by the Montgomery Bus Boycott and the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. to join the Civil Rights Movement. As a student at Fisk University, Lewis organized sit-in demonstrations at segregated lunch counters in Nashville, TN. In 1961, he joined the Freedom Riders, challenging Jim Crow segregation in the South. At the age of 23, he was speaking to the same enormous crowd who heard Kings I Have a Dream speech at the historic March on Washington. On March 7, 1965, Lewis and Hosea Williams led more than 600 people on The Selma-to-Montgomery March for voting rights. Lewis and others were brutally beaten by state troopers as they crossed the Edmund Pettus Bridge. The event became known as Bloody Sunday and led to the passage of the Voting Rights Act. Stetson University College of Law is considered a leader in teaching Civil Rights Law. Stetson Law professor Robert Dale Bickel and University of South Florida professor Raymond Arsenault lead an innovative annual directed study program that takes students on a 2,000 mile bus trip through the South to retrace a substantial portion of the Freedom Rides.

Gabber April 30 May 6, 2009 19 The Gabs By Leigh Clifton Do you think the people responsible for the torture of enemy combatants as recently described in memos by lawyers from the past administration should be prosecuted?Nicole White, Largo: I dont think they should be prosecuted because somehow we have to be seen or come across that we mean business when it comes to responding to someone attacking the US. Part of me doesnt really understand the overreacting to the tactics used to get information; these people were trying to get information that would possibly save American lives. We dont want to be seen as weak or vulnerable to terrorists and that fact that we water boarded the enemy might make them think twice in the future. If we prosecute our interrogators, it weakens our position. Whats the reason behind all this coming out anyway? These terrorists placed our country in danger; they have endangered the way we live our lives. Are we feeling sorry for them now? Why is it important to tell anyone how we got the information? Why not have tactics in place that send a clear message? Let the terrorists know that they cant come onto our soil and commit these acts and not expect the US to do something about it. And that we will use any means necessary to keep our country safe. I honestly think the memos were released just to shed a darker light on Bush. I dont know what good that will do us now. Frank Richards, Gulfport: Were the leaders of the free world and we should lead by example. Let the people think about that. I dont know if the torture was right or wrong; I dont know enough about the story yet. Jennifer Alexander, Largo: I feel makes us stoop down to the terrorists level. However, I do think that the people who wrote the legislation authorizing the use of torture probably just did it to justify the amount of info they did get. Its just a case of CYA Im not even sure how much pertinent information they really did get, after all that. But do we really want to become like the terrorists and become what they are? No amount of information seems worth that. Peggy Ireland, St. Pete Beach: I think that some of the tactics could bit inhuman. However, when someone comes over here and kills Americans, we have to back up our country and our government. Those terrorists think nothing of killing anyone and I dont know that torture, as its ference to them. They already think theyre going to a better place, so they dont care. I meet a lot of people from other countries who visit here and have no respect for our country because of our government and how we had behaved ourselves in the past in other countries. We have been greedy getting support. Were the laws clear cut on what tactics could be used to get information from a prisoner or were there loopholes built in to allow the government a lot of leeway? And is that right? Did it save lives? Isnt there some place here we have to draw the line, before we become like the terrorists ourselves? Is there a right and a wrong way to torture or to kill? If these terrorists come onto our land and kill our people, are we mation? If it saves our citizens, then maybe it is. But my closing thought is why cant we all just get along? We Earth going so we can leave our kids a decent future.

Garlic crabs on the boil, pork ribs and chicken on the smoker grill, fresh slaw and baked beans, all these aromas were part of the 22nd St. Seafood Festival. Originally slated to include a Youth Art Market and youth vendors, event organizer and 22nd St. Redevelopment Manager Steve Graves realized too late that the entire school population was on Spring Break and the students who were going to participate begged off to enjoy their short vacation from the books.

Cruising, from front page they participated in a voluntary beach cleanup on Gulfport beach; they had asked the City to make sure all the trash cans on the beach and surrounding areas be empty. In all, the sailors picked up 20 bags of trash, leaving the beach much cleaner than when they got here. Our motto is always leave a clean wake, said Tampa Bay Metro Coordinator for the Seven Seas Cruisers Association Jeff Hazzard. We mean that culturally and environmentally and we always do a beach cleanup, in whatever port we anchor. Its our way of giving back and also to thank the City for their accomodations. visit to Gulfport and they couldnt have been more pleased. We love it here, it is so nice!, Hazzard said.

22 Gabber April 30 May 6, 2009 quired by the Probate Court to be represented by a lawyer. All guardianship reports are presented to the Probate Court for review and approval. In the event that a guardian does not carry out his or her duties in a responsible manner, the guardian is subject to removal by the Probate Court. Are There Less Severe Alternatives to a Guardianship? Guardianship is an expensive and time consuming process. Use of less severe alternatives to guardianship is highly recommended. For example, the use of a durable power of attorney, a health care directive and/or a revocable living trust may eliminate the need for a guardianship thereby reducing the costs and time delay associated with guardianships. by: Robert J.

24 Gabber April 30 May 6, 2009 By Matthew MargolisBo Bos got himself a nice new pad on Pennsylvania Ave. He has a South Lawn and a West Wing to explore, company and a cornucopia of media Heck, Bos even got himself a book deal. That Bo is one hip cat. But what do you expect from a dog named for legendary Rock N Roll Hall of Famer Bo Diddley? Good question. What do you expect from the new should the expectations be of any dog just brought into a new home, on or off Pennsylvania Avenue? of them has ever raised a puppy. There are two young children who cant be expected to train a dog, and there is one president of the United perative that at least one member of the family be actively involved in Bos education. And so it appears Michelle will be charged with, among other things, keeping Bo from destroying Edith Roosevelts Wedgwood china collection, chewing the legs of the Blue Rooms Bellange chairs, lounging about on Lincolns bed and making nice with the many visitors to the White House. Thats right, hipster that he is, the historical value of the White House interior is lost on Bo. Just as the offlimits factor is foreign to all dogs until they are trained. In other words, without training, expectations should be low. Very low. But so far things are looking good for Bo. According to a recent report by the Christian Science Monitor, Twice Mrs. Obama demonstrated Bos obedient response to the sit command, an impromptu demonstration that took place for the beneing walk on the grounds. Bo and the press pool then got what Michelle dubbed a special treat, where members of the press Youngman, a reporter for the newspaper The Hill, told CSM that Bo seemed to take a liking to us. This kind of meet-and-greet will serve the Obamas well in avoiding an unfortunate Barney situation. Barney was tish terrier, who received a bout of bad press when he took a bite out of a reporters hand. Whether at the White House or your house, socialization is an important and necessary part of a dogs training, as is bonding -both of which Bo seems to suffer no shortage of. The bulk of Bos education will be forts. They will dictate his behavior -whether he begs, jumps, is allowed on the furniture. But if they give their new pup rules in a positive way and dont expect too much will be off to a great start. Raising a dog is a big responsibility, but the Obamas have seen bigger.

Youll be in charge of a group, and youre responsible for their collective production. Others feel comfortable around you because you dont fuss over every little thing. You understand that everyone makes mistakes, and you take them in stride. People perform better for you because theyre not nervous around you. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You know better than to take people literally. When someone says, It was nothing, they may mean, I dont want to rudely point out how much work this was, so lets just move on. You catch the cues and address the true meaning that people are expressing this week. Your social genius is unparalleled. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Youd like it if someone would be more honest with you. This person is afraid of disappointing you and also of the reaction you might have to the truth. Decide to listen to all information and accept it as neutral. Be open to any news and resolve not to take it personally. Stay objective and you will earn this persons trust. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). In relationships, you want to feel free to speak your mind without worrying whether the other person will get up in arms. Often you dont opt to express your thoughts, but its important to you to feel that you could if you insight into what is worth discussing and what is not. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). It doesnt seem like you should have to practice talking about yourself. After all, you know better than anyone else who you are and what youve been up to. However, it behooves you to plan your answer to the question, What do you do? Youll have many opportunities that depend on putting yourself in the best light. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Youre meaningful pursuits these days, and nothing is more meaningful than the right attitude. You see whats around you and maximize it. You create something beautiful out of random bits of life that no one else seems to value. This endeavor will make you truly, completely happy. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You were taught that intense focus and trying hard equal success. But youll focused now. Single-mindedness could prevent you from seeing something big. If youre too driven in one direction, you wont recognize the opportunities around you. Relax and have some fun. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Every day millions of meteorites on a collision course with the earth never make it to the ground -they burn up in the outer limits of our protective atmosphere. Your personal atmosphere is similarly protective this week. When you are aware and alert, only the most positive CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You think you prefer that everything be done your way. But it turns out youll be happier contributing to a group vision and doing whatever it is that needs to be done. So instead of leading, this time step back and observe. The elements come together in a way thats grander than you envisioned. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You stick to your convictions and opinions. When someone opposes you, it only makes you feel more determined to prove them wrong. Note that this week there is no time to waste in argument. Thursday and Friday, the action you take and the results you get will put an end to this difference of opinion. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You could easily come up with a number of excellent excuses for some less than ideal bit of recent behavior. Better still: Accept that you really didnt want to do the thing that other people wanted you to do. You deserve to spend your time in a way that pleases you. Adjust your schedule to accommodate your desires. ARIES (March 21-April 19). There is a certain acquaintance you see regularly and think of fondly, though as a friendship exactly. Your positive feeling toward this person may never be articulated, but it is felt on a deep level. Its an example of the subtle, warm and healing vibration you put out into the world. This Weeks Birthdays: You experience an amazing and rare phenomenon. Youll be promoted or be the winner in a competitive environment, and still keep your friendships with those who didnt win. You treat everyone with equal respect and that is part of your success secret. June brings a fun change of pace. You try to capture a heart and wind up on an unexpected adventure. August brings a business rush. Theres a chance to make a risky investment in September. A windfall comes in mid-October.

30 Gabber April 30 May 6, 2009 A Neighborhood Unites More than 400 people turned out in Bartlett Park in St. Petersburg on Saturday morning to march for Paris Whitehead-Hamilton, the eight year old girl who was gunned down in her aunts home two weeks ago. Sponsored by the St. Petersburg NAACP, the march for Paris was the culmination of frustration in a neighborhood which has seen several shootings in the recent months. Mayor Rick Baker, St. Pete Police Chief Chuck Harmon and several prominent church ministers were among the hundreds that gathered with Paris family to let the community know that the violence must end. T-shirts bearing Paris photograph and the saying When Paris fell down, Righteousness stood up were worn by the family members and many close friends; the rest of the crowd were handed out bright yellow t-shirts by the NAACP. Police Chief Harmon was pleased with the turnout and hopeful that this type of community involvement would break the code of silence so pervasive among the residents of the area. Im really encouraged by the amount of people who are here today, the Chief said. This really shows that the community is ready to take back their streets. This was just a senseless crime and a beautiful little girl is gone because of it. violence, Harmon, Mayor Baker and the St. Pete police have initiated a gun bounty program, offering a $1,500 reward for tips that lead to an arrest, a recovery of an assault weapon and a weapons charge. According to police reports, the 57 bullets that were recovered from the shooting of the house were from two different assault weapons. As the march proceeded up 18 Ave South to Martin Luther King Blvd, 30 members of the Nation of Islam Mosque, wearing black suits and bow ties in the hot sun, stood respectfully, heads bowed, along the road as the march passed. Running in cadence, they then followed the rally to Childs Park. More than 20 allow the marchers to pass through the neighborhood. The message was clear; the violence must end. It was just too late for Paris. 5K Run/Walk for Pancreatic Cancer The PurpleStride 5K competitive run and family walk to raise money for and awareness about Pancreatic Cancer will be held on May 30 beginning at 8:30 a.m. at the St. Petersburg Veterans Memorial Park on Bay Pines Boulevard.

Gabber April 30 May 6, 2009 35 This N That in South Pasadena By Sibylle StajichSeminar A full capacity audience attended the seminar on April 21 at the Boca Ciega Room in the Professional Building of Palms. After a light lunch, Dr. Robert McJennett, D.O. started his lecture on Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVD) and Pulmonary Embolism. Some risks for getting DVT are to be 40 years or older, being overweight, have a family history of blood clots, take birth control pills, have certain kinds of cancer or heart problems, varicose veins, are pregnant or had hip, knee or abdominal surgery. Up to 2,000,000 people in the USA suffer from blood clots forming in a vein deep in the body, usually in the lower limbs, An emboli is a complication of DVT and can occur when a fragment of a clot breaks loose from the wall of a vein and travels to the lungs where it can block a pulmonary artery or one of its branches. Symptoms can be swelling of arms or legs, pain when standing or leg feels warm to touch with red or discolored skin. To reduce a chance of getting an emboli is to elevate the leg over the heart, apply heat to relieve pain or wear support hose and avoid long immobility. Many questions were asked by the audience and the seminar did not end until 1:15. Band Concert Another South Pasadena Community Band concert is coming up on Thurs day, May 7.

Dear Editor: As you drive up Gulfport Blvd. towards Pasadena Avenue, the beautiful Pasadena golf course appears on the left and appears on the right. As part of the Law School structure is a round tower that looks naked to me without it lower Old Glory every evening. The last time this happened was 1951 when Florida Military Academy closed its doors for the last time. I know this because I was in the last Florida Military Academy graduating class. Everyone enjoyed seeing our the beautiful blue sky background. I would think of no better time for the university to do a patriotic act and up on the tower. They could leave the would hope that the cost would not be too cumbersome for a highly successful and respected law school. Robert Hitchins

Send us an email with your answer, name and phone number to News@theGabber.com In just 76 weeks, Gulfport will celebrate the centennial of its incorporation, October 12, 1910. Well be reminding you every week with an interesting old photograph from the collection of the Historical Museum. See if you can identify 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 wont publish the correct caption until the following week. LAST WEEKS ANSWER: Last weeks picture is a rare postcard of the attraction known as Monkey Island, which was located near the ninth tee of the Pasadena golf course in the 1920s. Today it would be just south of the intersection of Gulfport Boulevard and 64th Street (no longer surrounded by water). The monkey gang attracted a lot of visitors, many of whom disapproved of their behavior and nudity. Others, however, found their antics entertaining, and visiting Monkey Island on a Sunday afternoon was a popular diversion.Gulfport Centennial Countdown Continues! One of these people has an important city building named after her. When and where was this meeting, and who are its participants? Answer next week.

40 Gabber April 30 May 6, 2009 Somethin on my mind Somethin on my mindBy Bill Northr op B_Northr op@theGabber. com Just before the November elections, I wrote a letter-to-theeditor to several newspapers. I know of one that published it. My point was that Barack Obama had stated his positions rather clearly and if you liked them and voted for him, that was what you would get. administration have passed (a specious and pointless time period), and I reviewed his progress versus his positions as follows: Redistribution of wealth. Not completed, but proposed. Abortion on demand. Federal restrictions and oversight lifted. More money for the feds. Done via stimulus bill and budget. Tax cuts for many, increases for partly done with rebates, the second proposed, and expected for 2011. Termination of Bush tax cuts including estate tax. Proposed for 2011 as above. Increased Social Security taxes for $97,000 and above. Not done, but expected to help pay for new budget. Payroll tax rebates for lower income employes. Done as part of stimulus bill. Increased capital gains tax. Proposed for 2011. Medical care as a right. Health care reform package ready, and may or not be debated. Not yet ready for prime time, but full, mandatory electronic records on all citizens was included in the stimulus bill. Restricted new drilling for oil and gas. In force by exclusion from alternate energy program, lids on coal use. Scaling back development of new and/or nuclear weapons. Done. More troops in Afghanistan and possibly Darfur. Done in the case of Afghanistan, but Darfur not on radar screen. Unconditional pullout of troops from Iraq. On the way, but it wont be unconditional unless Iraq insists. Direct action against militants in Pakistan, whether Pakistan approves or not. Done. Against shooting missiles and killing civilians in Afghanistan. Missiles and killings continue. Direct meetings with no preconditions with leaders of Iran, Cuba, Venezuela, and North Korea. Initial steps taken, met with Chavez. projects. Done as part of stimulus bill. Continued support of housing policies of Freddie Mae and Freddie Mac. Government seized the failed policies, but approved $210 million in bonuses for staff. Funding for college educations for all who desire them. Partially funded in new budget, proposed for long run. Elimination of secret ballots for those considering union membership. Not done, not likely to clear congress. Gun control. Partially underway. Mixed messages from administration. Re-thinking Israel/Palestine issue: Underway. Distancing U.S. from Israel positions. European centered view of global apologies to Europeans for Americas past relationships with them. Pledged no unilateral actions. Dont blame me, he said. Continued apologies for American military and political actions, abroad, past and present. Done in talks with Europeans and more recently with South Americans. Split with Bill Ayres violent activities, but approval of programs and political agenda. Obama agenda is big government, social program expansions and power to the poor people. Condemns former pastor Rev. Wright for his hate American political statements, but supports the man and his religious teachings. International condemnation of U.S. including the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. All in all, Obama has done pretty much as he said he would.

Gabber April 30 May 6, 2009 43 BCYCs 6th Annual Fun Day a Big SuccessBy Leigh Clifton With a spectacular day and a perfect breeze, the Boca Ciega Yacht Club opened up their clubhouse and grounds to the public last Saturday, for their 6th annual Fun Day, with more than 500 people attending. The Fun Day is an opportunity to educate the public about sailing, water rules, safety and water conservation. Major sponsors for the event were Tackle Shack, MASTHEAD Enterprises, JSI Canvas, Eckerd College Search and Rescue, The O.LL.I.E program for Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Eckerd College, Sea Tow, Gulfport Yacht Club, Gulfport Water Watch, C.E.R.T, GulfportWatchDog. com and the Gulfport Chamber of Commerce. been a sponsor and according to Jean Proach, Event Chair, they were a welcome addition. More than 80 volunteers from BCYC helped get the club ship-shape and ready for the publics visit. Set up on the small beach by the Yacht club, Tackle Shack brought along two sailing kayaks and two double kayaks among the seven different styles they brought, giving away over 50 kayak rides. Sea Tow gave out over 750 free gifts; bright yellow coozies, alert kids absolutely loved them. Sea Tow owner Skip Shute also signed some folks up for his towing services; they come in awfully handy when you run aground. Florida Sun Coast Hospice Chaplain Ken Stagg, his wife Deanna, sons Andrew 13, Joshua 11 and daughter Chyna, 15, join BCYC member and Captain Steve Honour aboard his boat Shady Lady for a cruise around the bay.

44 Gabber April 30 May 6, 2009 By Cathy Salustri Why they were in that cell was anyones guess. Edward, Someone Wholl Watch Over Me. In 1986 Brian Keenan and John McCarthy spent four non. Irish playwright Frank McGuiness met and spoke with Brian Keenan, which inspired him to write Someone Wholl Watch Over Me. Keenan asked only one thing of McGuiness: not to release the play until after McCarthys release. Dont go see Someone Wholl Watch Over Me if youre looking for a laugh-a-minute comedy that makes your sides ache. The Gulfport Community Players make a brave departure from the standard community theatre fodder by staging the Florida west coast premiere of this play, and although you wont likely leave the show whis tling a happy tune, nonetheless the Players produced a superb show. Nothing Id seen this season at Gulfports Catherine Hickman Theatre impressed me too terribly much, so the idea of spending two hours watching a play about hosJudging from the paltry gathering at Sundays matinee many others shared my reservations about Someone Wholl Watch Over Me. Since the Gulfport Comif they choose not to see it this weekend. Director Bill Rucker assembles a small but talented cast of three men. Keven Renken (Michael), Jim Russell (Edward) and Mark Myers (Adam) comprise an Englishman, an Irishman, and an American who spend the show chained to three separate walls. The actors have only an almost-bare stage and no props to work with. Because of these things the show focuses solely on the acting. Russell so perfectly becomes his character that I didnt recognize him under his dirt-smudged face and heady Irish brogue. Russell comes into his own in this production, surpassing anything else Ive seen him in on the Hickman stage, leaving behind his self and completely transforming into Edward. Myers builds his performance throughout and delivers a chilling monologue in strong performances, Myers sets a powerful pace and tone for the show. Renken plays the Englishman who only ner party but got arrested on the way to the market, and he plays the part of the gentle yet indignant English professor ably. I dont recall seeing him or Myers in anything else with the Players so I dont know whether mances, but I suspect the three actors and Rucker worked very hard to understand the hostage mentality and the nuances of this script. The most beautiful moment comes when the threesome sing together shortly before the intermission and again when Adam sings Amazing Grace. Expect light moments and laughter peppered throughout Someone Wholl Watch Over Me, such as when Adam proclaims that white jockey shorts comprise Americas most divine contribution to the world. These moments must mirror the ones the real hostages certainly needed desperately. Contrary to what I assumed, the show doesnt overwhelm you with its heaviness and the weight of the subject. Instead, the actors compassion and camaraderie and angst all fuses to bring culture and art and sincerity to the Gulfport Community Players. Its about time. Go see Someone Wholl Watch Over Me tonight, Friday, or Saturday at 8 p.m. or at 2 p.m. this Sunday at the Catherine Hickman Theatre. Call 322-0316 for tickets. You can contact Cathy Salustri at CathySalustri@ TheGabber.com. Someone Wholl Watch Over Me: Not Your Usual Community Theatre Fare Jim Russsell delivers a powerful performance in The Gulfport Community Players production of Someone Wholl Watch Over Me. The play continues through Sunday afternoon at the Catherine Hickman Theatre.

The team of Joan McKenna, Mary Benvin, Barbara Frasca, Ruth Ficalora, Pat Murphy, Margaret Reilly players consisting of Manny Ramalho, Al Browne, Dale Shamp, Jerry Small and Captain Skip Ringland took the second game and it all came down to the third game in which the women prevailed.

The Bocce Blast is an elimination tournament that this year began with women. Lunch is served before the games begin and this year the weather was not too cooperative. However, the players decided to play in the cool, windy weather and the rest is history. On April 22, all the referees and guests, along with those special people who go an extra mile for the Bocce Club, gathered for a delicious lunch prepared by Harveys 4th Street Grill.

Gabber April 30 May 6, 2009 47 Bo ca Ciega High School Scoreboard Scoreboard By Leigh Clifton Watching Alejandro Riveron and Dat Tran sit quietly in front of a chess board, its hard to imagine these two best friends and seniors heading to USF in the fall as regular, boisterous teenagers; they sit so softly on the edge of their seats, eyes skirting the chess board, testing different patterns in their heads, attempting to anticipate moves ahead. These AP Honors students (Dat carries a 4.63 and Alejandro a 4.5 GPA) are part of the Bogie Chess Club, comprised of about 15 students that meet after school in Psychology teacher Kathryn Drouins classroom. She has chess boards set up in her classroom and will stay after school, often working on her paper work, while the kids battle against one another for board supremacy. Most days Ill stay here till after 4 pm or so, she said. But I keep threatening to get Alejandro a time clock. Sometimes he takes forever to make a move! While some games can last up to two hours; others can have a ten-second shelf life. Thats called the Fools Mate, Dat Tran laughed. Its when your opponent has no idea what theyre doing and you do. You can take him down pretty quick! The Chess Club was originally the brainchild of Science teacher David Cliborne, who, after taking an extended leave of absence, returned as a substitute and then sponsor to help Ms. Drouhin get the kids involved in competitive tournaments. Unfortunately, in last weeks contest both Dat and Alejandro were knocked out four-day event. But that doesnt stop them with one another. Skillswise, they are pretty evenly matched. Were pretty even on wins, Dat said, but I always go easy on him. I dont want to ruin his self esteem. I really want to beat him to a pulp! he laughed. Alejandro looked up from the board and rolled his eyes. I dont think so, he said smiling as he took one of Dats pieces and placed it gently on his side of the desk. He turned back to study the board intently. On this day, however, it looks like a stale-mate both live to see another day to battle in Ms. Drouhins classroom. Alejandro will probably need that clock.This Weeks Scores...Boys Varsity Baseball4/28/09 Boca Ciega High 0 Lakewood High 84/22/09 Tarpon Springs 11 Boca Ciega 0 4/21/09 Tarpon Springs 6 Boca Ciega 2 Girls Varsity Softball 4/22/09 Seminole High 3 Boca Ciega 1 4/21/09 Boca Ciega 11 Dixie Hollins 0Bogie Chess Club Has all the Right Moves Seniors Alejandro Riveron (left) and Dat Tran study the chess board as they try to outwit each other.

Jennifer Alexander, Largo: "I feel
there is no justification for torture; it
makes us stoop down to the terror-
ist's level. However, I do think that
the people who wrote the legislation
authorizing the use of torture prob-
ably just did it to justify the amount
of info they did get. It's just a case of
CYA... I'm not even sure how much
pertinent information they really
did get, after all that. But do we re-
ally want to become hke the terror-
ists and become what they are? No
amount of information seems worth
that."


Frank Richards, Gulfport: "We're
the leaders of the free world and we
should lead by example. Let the peo-
ple think about that. I don't know
if the torture was right or wrong; I
don't know enough about the story
yet."


Peggy Ireland, St. Pete Beach: "I
think that some of the tactics could
be justified, but it does seem a httle
bit inhuman. However, when some-
one comes over here and kills Amen-
cans, we have to back up our country
and our government. Those terror-
ists think nothing of killing anyone
and I don't know that torture, as it's
defined, would make that big a dif-
ference to them. They already think
they're going to a better place, so they
don't care. I meet a lot of people from
other countries who visit here and
have no respect for our country be-
cause of our government and how we
had behaved ourselves in the past in
other countries. We have been greedy
and selfish and that's why we're in
the spot we're in, having difficulty
getting support. Were the laws clear
cut on what tactics could be used to
get information from a prisoner or
were there loopholes built in to al-
low the government a lot of leeway?
And is that right? Did it save lives?
Isn't there some place here we have
to draw the line, before we become
like the terrorists ourselves? Is there
a right and a wrong way to torture or
to kill? If these terrorists come onto
our land and kill our people, are we
justified to torture them to get infor-
mation? If it saves our citizens, then
maybe it is. But my closing thought
is why can't we all just get along? We
need to figure out how to keep our
Earth going so we can leave our kids
a decent future."


Nicole White, Largo: "I don't think
they should be prosecuted because
somehow we have to be seen or come
across that we mean business when
it comes to responding to someone
attacking the US. Part of me doesn't
really understand the overreacting
to the tactics used to get informa-
tion; these people were trying to
get information that would possibly
save American lives. We don't want
to be seen as weak or vulnerable to
terrorists and that fact that we wa-
ter boarded the enemy might make
them think twice in the future. If
we prosecute our interrogators, it
weakens our position. What's the
reason behind all this coming out
anyway? These terrorists placed our
country in danger; they have en-
dangered the way we live our lives.
Are we feehng sorry for them now?
Why is it important to tell anyone
how we got the information? Why
not have tactics in place that send
a clear message? Let the terrorists
know that they can't come onto our
soil and commit these acts and not
expect the US to do something about
it. And that we will use any means
necessary to keep our country safe. I
honestly think the memos were re-
leased just to shed a darker hght on
Bush. I don't know what good that
will do us now.

How Safe is Your Boat?
When was the last time you checked
your fire extinguishers, made sure
that your navigation lights were

signals were in date or even your
PFDs (life jackets) are in proper
working order? All of these items

What Is A
Guardianship?
(Part II)
This article is a continuation of
our previous article regarding 'What
is a Guardianship".
Who May Serve as a Guardian?
If someone is an adult resident of
the State of Florida, that person is
potentially qualified to serve as a
guardian in Florida. Likewise, a
close relative of a ward who is not a
resident of the State of Florida may
also be qualified to serve as a guard-
ian. However, if a proposed guardian
is incapable of performing the duties
of a guardian or has been convicted
of a felony, that person cannot be ap-
pointed by the Probate Court as a
guardian.
What are the Responsibilities
of a Guardian?
Guardians are required to be bond-
ed and may be required to complete
a Court-approved training program
for guardians. Guardians are re-


quired by the Probate Court to be
represented by a lawyer. All guard-
ianship reports are presented to the
Probate Court for review and ap-
proval. In the event that a guardian
does not carry out his or her duties
in a responsible manner, the guard-
ian is subject to removal by the Pro-
bate Court.
Are There Less Severe
Alternatives to a Guardianship?
Guardianship is an expensive and
time consuming process. Use of less
severe alternatives to guardianship
is highly recommended. For example,
the use of a durable power of attor-
ney, a health care directive and/or a
revocable living trust may eliminate
the need for a guardianship thereby
reducing the costs and time delay
associated with guardianships.

By Matthew Margolis
Bo
Bo's got himself a nice new pad on
Pennsylvania Ave. He has a South
Lawn and a West Wing to explore,
a couple of first tweens to keep him
company and a cornucopia of media
outfits itching to take his picture.
Heck, Bo's even got himself a book
deal.
That Bo is one hip cat. But what do
you expect from a dog named for leg-
endary Rock 'N' Roll Hall of Famer
Bo Diddley?
Good question.
What do you expect from the new
first dog? More importantly, what
should the expectations be of any
dog just brought into a new home,
on or off Pennsylvania Avenue?
In the case of the first family, none
of them has ever raised a puppy.
There are two young children who
can't be expected to train a dog, and
there is one president of the Umted
States who has bigger fish to fry.


This leaves the first lady, as it is im-
perative that at least one member
of the family be actively involved in
Bo's education.
And so it appears Michelle will be
charged with, among other things,
keeping Bo from destroying Edith
Roosevelt's Wedgwood china collec-
tion, chewing the legs of the Blue
Room's Bellange chairs, lounging
about on Lincoln's bed and making
nice with the many visitors to the
White House.
That's right, hipster that he is, the
historical value of the White House
interior is lost on Bo. Just as the off-
hmits factor is foreign to all dogs un-
til they are trained.
In other words, without training,
expectations should be low. Very
low.
But so far things are looking good
for Bo. According to a recent report
by the Christian Science Monitor,
"Twice Mrs. Obama demonstrated
Bo's obedient response to the 'sit'
command," an impromptu demon-

station that took place for the bene-
fit of the White House press corps as
the first lady took Bo for his morn-
ing walk on the grounds.
Bo and the press pool then got
what Michelle dubbed a "special
treat," where members of the press
took turns petting the first pup. Sam
Youngman, a reporter for the news-
paper The Hill, told CSM that Bo
"seemed to take a liking to us." This
kind of meet-and-greet will serve the
Obamas well in avoiding an unfortu-
nate "Barney" situation. Barney was
the former first dog, the Bush's Scot-
tish terrier, who received a bout of
bad press when he took a bite out of
a reporter's hand.
Whether at the White House or your
house, socialization is an important
and necessary part of a dog's train-
ing, as is bonding -- both of which Bo
seems to suffer no shortage of.
The bulk of Bo's education will be
the result of the first family's ef-
forts. They will dictate his behavior
-- whether he begs, jumps, is al-
lowed on the furniture. But if they
give their new pup rules in a posi-
tive way and don't expect too much
in the first six months, they and Bo
will be off to a great start. Raising
a dog is a big responsibility, but the
Obamas have seen bigger.

tAfloroscope Guide


TAURUS (April 20-May 20).
You'll be in charge of a group, and
you're responsible for their collective
production. Others feel comfortable
around you because you don't fuss over
every little thing. You understand
that everyone makes mistakes,
and you take them in stride. People
perform better for you because they're
not nervous around you.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You
know better than to take people
literally. When someone says, "It was
nothing," they may mean, "I don't
want to rudely point out how much
work this was, so let's just move
on." You catch the cues and address
the true meaning that people are
expressing this week. Your social
genius is unparalleled.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). You'd
like it if someone would be more
honest with you. This person is afraid
of disappointing you and also of the
reaction you might have to the truth.
Decide to listen to all information
and accept it as neutral. Be open to
any news and resolve not to take it
personally. Stay objective and you
will earn this person's trust.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). In
relationships, you want to feel free
to speak your mind without worrying
whether the other person will get up
in arms. Often you don't opt to express
your thoughts, but it's important
to you to feel that you could if you
wanted to. You'll find a brilliant
insight into what is worth discussing
and what is not.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). It doesn't
seem like you should have to practice
talking about yourself After all, you
know better than anyone else who
you are and what you've been up to.
However, it behooves you to plan your
answer to the question, "What do you
do?" You'll have many opportunities
that depend on putting yourself in
the best light.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You're
on a quest to fill your time with


meaningful pursuits these days, and
nothing is more meaningful than the
right attitude. You see what's around
you and maximize it. You create
something beautiful out of random
bits of life that no one else seems to
value. This endeavor will make you
truly, completely happy.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You
were taught that intense focus and
trying hard equal success. But you'll
actually benefit from being less
focused now. Single-mindedness
could prevent you from seeing
something big. If you're too driven in
one direction, you won't recognize the
opportunities around you. Relax and
have some fun.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21).
Every day millions of meteorites
on a collision course with the earth
never make it to the ground -- they
burn up in the outer limits of our
protectiveatmosphere. Yourpersonal
atmosphere is similarly protective
this week. When you are aware
and alert, only the most positive
influences will get close to you.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19).
You think you prefer that everything
be done your way. But it turns out
you'll be happier contributing to a
group vision and doing whatever it
is that needs to be done. So instead
of leading, this time step back and
observe. The elements come together
in a way that's grander than you
envisioned.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You
stick to your convictions and opinions.
When someone opposes you, it only
makes you feel more determined to
prove them wrong. Note that this
week there is no time to waste in
argument. Thursday and Friday, the
action you take and the results you
get will put an end to this difference
of opinion.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You
could easily come up with a number
of excellent excuses for some less
than ideal bit of recent behavior.


Better still: Accept that you really
didn't want to do the thing that other
people wanted you to do. You deserve
to spend your time in a way that
pleases you. Adjust your schedule to
accommodate your desires.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). There
is a certain acquaintance you see
regularly and think of fondly, though
the relationship may not be classified
as a friendship exactly. Your positive
feeling toward this person may never
be articulated, but it is felt on a deep
level. It's an example of the subtle,
warm and healing vibration you put
out into the world.
This Week's Birthdays: You
experience an amazing and rare
phenomenon. You'll be promoted
or be the winner in a competitive
environment, and still keep your
friendships with those who didn't
win. You treat everyone with equal
respect and that is part of your
success secret. June brings a fun
change of pace. You try to capture a
heart and wind up on an unexpected
adventure. August brings a business
rush. There's a chance to make a
risky investment in September. A
windfall comes in mid-October.

A Neighborhood Unites
More than 400 people turned out
in Bartlett Park in St. Petersburg
on Saturday morning to march for
Paris Whitehead-Hamilton, the
eight year old girl who was gunned
down in her aunt's home two weeks
ago. Sponsored by the St. Petersburg
NAACP, the march for Paris was
the culmination of frustration in
a neighborhood which has seen
several shootings in the recent
months. Mayor Rick Baker, St. Pete
Police Chief Chuck Harmon and
several prominent church ministers
were among the hundreds that
gathered with Paris' family to let the
community know that the violence
must end. T-shirts bearing Paris'


photograph and the saying "When
Paris fell down, Righteousness stood
up" were worn by the family members
and many close friends; the rest of
the crowd were handed out bright
yellow t-shirts by the NAACP. Police
Chief Harmon was pleased with the
turnout and hopeful that this type
of community involvement would
break the code of silence so pervasive
among the residents of the area.
"I'm really encouraged by the
amount of people who are here
today," the Chief said. "This really
shows that the community is ready
to take back their streets. This was
just a senseless crime and a beautiful
little girl is gone because of it."
In an effort to stem the flow of
violence, Harmon, Mayor Baker and

the St. Pete police have initiated
a gun bounty program, offering a
$1,500 reward for tips that lead to
an arrest, a recovery of an assault
weapon and a weapons charge.
According to police reports, the 57
bullets that were recovered from the
shooting of the house were from two
different assault weapons.
As the march proceeded up 18
Ave South to Martin Luther King
Blvd, 30 members of the Nation of
Islam Mosque, wearing black suits
and bow ties in the hot sun, stood
respectfully, heads bowed, along the
road as the march passed. Running
in cadence, they then followed the
rally to Child's Park. More than 20
St. Pete Police officers attended the
march as well, holding up traffic to
allow the marchers to pass through
the neighborhood. The message was
clear; the violence must end. It was
just too late for Paris.

Can Stetson Fly
the Flag Again?
Dear Editor: As you drive up
Gulfport Blvd. towards Pasadena
Avenue, the beautiful Pasadena
golf course appears on the left and
the magnificent Stetson Law School
appears on the right. As part of the
Law School structure is a round tow-
er that looks naked to me without it
supporting the American flag. It used
to raise our flag in the morning and
lower Old Glory every evening.
The last time this happened was
1951 when Florida Military Acad-
emy closed its doors for the last time.
I know this because I was in the last
Florida Military Academy graduating
class. Everyone enjoyed seeing our
flag wave on top of that tower with
the beautiful blue sky background.
I would think of no better time for
the university to do patriotic act and
put a beautiful American flag back
up on the tower. They could leave the
flag up 24/7 and with a timer have
spot lights on the flag at night. I
would hope that the cost would not
be too cumbersome for a highly suc-
cessful and respected law school.
Robert Hitchins

ASomethih Oh my mind
By Bill Northrop BNorthrop@theGabbercom

Obama's 100 Days


J ust before the November
elections, I wrote a letter-t-the-
editor to several newspapers
I know of one that pubhshed it My
point was that Barack Obama had
stated hins positions ratherclearly and
if you ked them and voted for him,
that was what you would get
Now, the first 100 days of hins
adi-stDtion have passed (a
specious and pomtless time penod),
and I reviewed hins progress versus hins
positions as follows
Redistribution of wealth Not
completed, but proposed
Abozrton on demand Federal
restctions and oversight lifted
More money for the feds Done via
stimulus bill and budget
Tax cuts for many, creases for
higher comes The first has been
partly done with rebates, the second
proposed, and expected for 2011
Termanaton of Bush tax cuts
including estate tax Proposed for
2011 as above
Increased Social Securty taxes
for $97,000 and above Not done, but
expected to help pay for new budget
Payroll tax rebates for lower income
employes Done as part of stimulus
bill
Increasedcapital gains tax Proposed
for 2011
Medical care as a eight Health care
reformpackage ready, and may ornot
be debated Not yet ready for pnme
tme, but full, mandatory electromc
records on all citizens was included in
the stimulus bill
Restnctednew dnrhngfor ol and gas
In force by exclusion from alternate
energy program, hds on coal use
Scahng back development of new
and/ornuclearweapons Done
More troops m Afghamstan and
possibly Darfur Done m the case of
Afghamstan, but Darfur not on radar
screen
Unconditional pullout of troops from
Iraq On the way, but it wont be
unconditional unless Iraq msists
Direct action agamst mihtants in
Pakistan, whether Pakstan approves
ornot Done


Against shooting missiles and killing
civilans m Afghastan Missiles and
killings continue
Direct meetmgs with no pre-
conditions with leaders of Iran, Cuba,
Venezuela, and North Korea Imtial
steps taken, met with Chavez
Unqualified support for ACORN
projects Done as part of stimulus
bill
Contmued support of housmg
pohcies of Freddie Mae and Freddie
Mac Government seized the failed
mstitutions, have modified some
polhces, but approved $210 milhon mi
bonuses for staff
Fundmg for college educations for all
who desire them Partally funded m
new budget, proposed for long un
Elnlmation of secret ballots for
those conslder g umon membership
Not done, not hkely to clear congress
Gun control Partially
underway Mixed messages from
administration
Re-thmling Israel/Palestine issue
Underway Distancmg US from
Israel positions
European centered view of global
pohtics Underway as defined m
apologies to Europeans for Amencas
past relationships wththem Pledged
no unilateral actions Dont blameme,
he said
Continued apologies for Amercan
mlhtary and potical actions, abroad,
past and present Done in talks with
Europeans and more recently with
South Amercans
Spht with Bill Ayres violent
activities, but approval of programs
and pohtical agenda Obama agenda
is big government, social program
expansions and power to the poor
people
Condemns former pastor Rev
Wnght for his hate Amencan political
statements, but supports the man and
hins rehgaous teachings International
statements reflect Wnght's
condemnation of U S mcludmg the
bombing of Hiroshuna and Nagasaki
All m all, Obama has done pretty
much as he said he would
