St. Pete Beach Establishes
Tentative Millage Rate
ST. PETE BEACH- Property owners will pay no more
than 2.6724 mils, or $2.67 per $1000 of appraised prop-
erty value, for the 2010 tax year. The city commission
set the tentative millage rate at Tuesday night's meet-
ing.
Property owners currently pay roughly $2.37, or 2.3674
mils. The new rate will generate the same amount of
money as the 2009 millage rate because property values
have gone down,

Gulfport Police
and Fire Assist and
Extinguish Fire
GULFPORT: Officer Danyelle
Madsen was patrolling the
neighborhood west of the Pasadena
Yacht & Country Club on the
morning of Tuesday, July 28th,
when she noticed smoke coming
from a house at 6501 Mockingbird
Way. "I saw smoke pouring out of
the roof vent," said Madsen, who has
been a police officer with Gulfport


for five years. Thinking that the
house was on fire, Officer Madsen
did not hesitate; she went inside
and found the stove and microwave
oven on fire. After evacuating the
resident, who had unsuccessfully
tried to put out the flames, Madsen
called for assistance from the fire
department. Within five minutes of
the call, City of Gulfport Fire Engine
and Command unit were on the
scene. Gulfport firefighters quickly
arrived to extinguish the smoldering
kitchen fire.


"It's a good thing she was in the
right place at the right time. Who
knows how this couldhave turnedout
otherwise," said Lieutenant Robert
Vincent, Madsen's supervisor. This
quick action reduced the amount
of damage to the kitchen and the
spread of the fire. The firefighters
kept it contained to the stove top
and microwave.
Gulfport police routinely patrol this
area, which is situated between the
Yacht Club and an unincorporated
neighborhood bordering South
Pasadena.

TaX Rate, from front page

Finance Director Elaine Trehy ex-
plained. A tentative millage rate
effectively sets a ceiling for proper-
ty taxes. The city may tax property
owners less than the tentative mill-
age rate but it may not levy higher
taxes.
Commissioner Jim Parent said
that last year the commission
didn't follow the budget commit-
tee's advice and subsequently had
to close the library on Mondays.
Parent also pointed to other ways
he said the lower tax rate failed
residents, but commissioner Chris-
topher Leonard said he would not
support a rate increase.
"I just have talked to a lot of resi-
dents who simply cannot afford an
increase in their taxes," Leonard
said. Mayor Mike Finnerty sug-
gested a compromise on the rate.
"I think we all agree that no one
wants to increase taxes on the resi-
dents," Commissioner Bev Garnett
said, adding, "We are not raising
taxes here tonight."
Vice Mayor Al Halpern and Com-
missioners Parent and Garnett vot-
ed in favor of the tentative millage
rate. Mayor Finnerty and Commis-
sioner Christopher Leonard voted
against the resolution.

Family Fun Fishing Day
Introduce youngsters to the
excitement of fishing at a free
Family Fun Fishing Day, on line for
Saturday, Aug. 1, from 8:30 to 11
a.m. at Walsingham Park in Largo.
Children 14 years and younger will
be schooled in the ways of fishing
and encouraged to learn the lifelong
leisure activity. Poles and bait will
be provided, or anglers can bring
their own.
To add to the fun, prizes will be
awarded for first fish, smallest fish,
multiple catches and more. During
the morning, children will net
education tips from the experts about
fishing rules and good practices such
as catch and release.
WalsinghamParkis located at 12615
102 Avenue N. in Largo. For more
information about Pinellas County
Parks, visit www.pinellascounty.

Drive Someone Happy
Transportation is one of the biggest
challenges for seniors. Becoming


a passenger rather than a driver
can be difficult for older drivers
and their families. Many Pinellas
County seniors are living alone and
are too frail to shop or drive to a
medical appointment. Seniors who
can no longer drive can get easy
access to transportation through the
Neighborly Care Network EZride
program.
If you have a few hours Tuesday
through Saturday between 8
a.m. and 6 p.m., you could help
improve someone's life in your own
neighborhood and make a real


difference in this critical area of
need. Volunteering to drive someone
who can no longer drive can be a
great experience.
Volunteers are matched with
seniors close to where they live
or work. Using your own vehicle,
transportation is provided to doctor
appointments, grocery shopping, or
errands. Reimbursement for gas is
available.
You can start helping those in need
today by calling Pat Hazell at 727-
573-9444, ext. 291.

3Lep1iilltl iiio1 o uUr tiargu; inu, I UUllL LU lIK lint S11UUl Ut u rellISLLate Ill ytinLlllllg:
What he did was a gross abuse of power and money. Regardless of whether his behavior
is regarded as an African American cultural phenomenon, the argument that he's
not the only person who does it is a moot point. He is a media figure, a role model
for children. Media figures have to watch what they do and say. I think dealing with
athletes, football players in particular; there is a certain amount of desensitization
which translates into their everyday life. They're used to dealing with pain; they feel
invincible, like their celebrity status elevates them above the law. They drive drunk,
get into fights; even beat their spouses and girlfriends with impunity. But this is way
beyond that. It's one thing to gamble, another thing entirely to raise animals just to kill
each other, and then discard them so savagely and without any remorse. The argument
that animals are expendable, especially domestic ones is heinous. Children need good,
solid role models and if he is an example, what must those kids think? They see him and
then feel justified that what he did is cool. He's also helped to ruin the reputation of the
Pit Bull breed. People associate them now with the stigma of a very aggressive dog. Most are very sweet, if raised properly.
What he did was deplorable and he should not be allowed to join a team in the NFL."

Gerard Greer, St. Pete: "Yes, I believe he's served his court- sanctioned time and
repaid his obligation to society. The Commissioner of Football has declared him eligible
for reinstatement. But I'm sure that everyone in the NFL will be scrutinizing him; the
biggest factor is whether there will even be a team that is willing to take a chance on
him. I don't agree with the argument that the NFL can be violent and may be a contrib-
uting factor in his behavior. I don't think the NFL makes you violent. When the Com-
missioner was speaking while they were both up on the podium, I think he was making
sure that Vick showed some remorse. But I wouldn't go out of my way to follow him
statistically. Prior to his getting arrested, he was one of the NFL's biggest superstars,
but I think any team will be reluctant to hire him because of the negative ramifications.
His image is definitely tarnished and he'll never regain his prior superstar status again,
even if he played like before.. I wouldn't want my kids to idolize him, even if he is a great
player. There are far better players and people in the NFL who are positive role models
and who conduct themselves in a proper manner."


Donovan Green, St. Pete: "No, I don't think he deserves to be reinstated in the
NFL, because he has the capacity to kill animals without feeling bad about it. But I
think the NFL needs him. He did his time and you have to forgive and give a person
a second chance in life. I don't think, though, that he's actually sincerely sorry about
hurting his dogs; I think he'll do it again, just to make more money. In fact, he's
probably addicted to the money and he thinks having fighting dogs makes him more
prestigious. I think he was brought up around it (dog fighting) as a child and he just
brought that mindset into his adulthood. But it's a bad habit that can destroy your
life. The way he treated those dogs, it makes you wonder if he could just move up
to killing people as easily. Most of those serial killers do that; they start out small,
killing small animals. I'm pretty sure that he'll do this sort of thing again. I would
watch him, though, just to see if he lost a step or got fat."

Jenna Fraga, Gulfport: "No, I don't because I think someone of his stature should be a
role model to children and teens. Yes, he served his time, but I think that it sets a wrong
precedent. He's a multi-millionaire, yet he was fighting dogs for money. That kind of
cruelty shows so much about a person; if he can hurt an animal so savagely, what else
is he capable of? I think he would probably do it again too. He acts like everything is
fine, all is forgiven. I haven't seen any remorse from him at all. I have a nine year old
son, Dylan, who absolutely loves football and he watches the news with me every night.
He heard what happened and he asked me why he (Vick) would hurt those dogs like
that. He couldn't understand why someone would be so mean; he was very upset and
confused about it. I would NOT watch Vick play football, and I don't want my son to
watch him, if he does get picked up by a team. I think my son deserves to see respect,
not cruelty in a football player."

Letters


On the Interim
Dear Editor: It appears that last
week's "Hard Candy" Cathy is on
to something as to violations of the
Sunshine Law in regard to the in-
terim city attorney issue. One might
also cite the permanent city manager
issue and while we're at it, the police
chief issue, as no outside search for
qualified applicants has been done
for these positions either.
I love Gulfport and have resided
here for 22 years. Having said that,
let me opine that our system of gov-
ernment is dysfunctional at best and
at worse, corrupted. Now it appears
City Council is going to do the equiva-
lent of "spot zoning" to clear the path
for Mr. O'Reilly to be our permanent
city manager. Mr. O'Reilly may be a
good choice for city manager; I don't
like the way he was made the only
choice.
John Freiberger


Just a Quick Question
Dear Editor: I was wondering why
the Gabber would give a whole page
to a cat lover who doesn't care about
his neighbors or the rules (re: "But-
tercup", July 23-29, 2009).
This man sees fit to open his door at
3 a.m. and let his cat run loose. Good
ole "Buttercup" can now do his busi-
ness in all the neighbors' yards, walk
all over their cars, tear up their grass
and who knows, maybe kill a couple
of birds during his morning stroll.
Cats, like dogs, belong on a leash or
under voice control. I for one am sick
and tired of people's cats scratch-
ing up my truck, my wife's car and
crapping all over my yard and patio!
I guess some just don't have any re-
spect for their neighbors.
Now he is upset over the demise of
a cat that is his fault for allowing it
to run loose. Gulfport code requires
people to keep their cats on a leash


same as a dog. I'm not sure if this
person lives within the city limits of
Gulfport or not.
When questioned, he says "if some-
one needs to be killed, it would be the
guards, not the coyotes". Sounds like
a threat to me. The guards better be
on their toes now!

It's my Beach too,
Pick up your Trash
Dear Editor: Sunday, July 19th
my husband and I went to our lovely
Gulfport beach to relax. We parked
close to the Recreation Center and
as we walked from the parking area
to the beach, I was in shock of how
much trash has gathered on our
beach. Soda pop cans and bottles,
water bottles, candy wrappers, bottle
tops, dirty diapers, and tons and tons
of cigarette butts.
As we were enjoying our day through
all the trash, several people who
were enjoying their day at the shel-
ter house by the recreation center
started gathering their belongings to
leave. I looked over and noticed them
dumping their grill on the ground.
As we called it a day we walked by
that area and there lay on the ground
grilling coals and trash they left for
someone else to pick up. Notice there
are at least three trash containers
around that shelter house. The City
of Gulfport has provided ample trash
containers.
If we were allowed to grill on the
beach, would not the city provide
the grills, if not the grill's metal con-
tainer to put your hot coals in? If
these things are not present, don't
you think you should be responsible
enough to bring your own containers
and take it with you? Or find out if
grilling is allowed?
Do we need to start a beach patrol to
keep our beach safe and clean?

Dirty diapers can you believe that?
Soda pop bottles when you are sitting

you care what you are doing to the
environment?
Cigarette butts flood our beach. If
you cannot be responsible enough to
dispose of your butts properly then I
think we should ban smoking on the
beach and surrounding area. If you
cannot pick up after yourself then
you are not welcome on my beach.

YOU NEWS!







Attorney Keith Sanders Handles Bankruptcies with Experience and Sensitivity
By Greg Stem


Guess you could say my motto
is 'been there, done that'," says
LKeith Sanders, from the law
office of Andre Keith Sanders, P.A.
He says that for two reasons. First,
he says his more than 17 years of ex-
perience as an attorney specializing
in handling "literally thousands" of
bankruptcies means that he has dealt
with virtually any kind of problem
or issue that might arise with them.
And, secondly, he had to file a Chap-
ter 13 bankruptcy himself a few years
ago. He says that experience makes
him very sensitive to the kinds of
things people face when making the
difficult decision to file.
"Most attorneys have never been
in a situation where they have been
worried about how to keep the lights
on, but I have been there myself so I
can really relate to what people are
going through," said Sanders. "Plus,
many people are very embarrassed
when they come to me, but I when I
tell them how embarrassing it was for
me to have to stand in front of judges
and colleagues who knew me and go
through the process myself, that usu-
ally helps to put people more at ease
and understand that I have been there
and done that MYSELF."
"You know, in 99 percent of bank-
ruptcy cases the situation is that bad
things happen to good people and then
they have gotten into a bad situation.
They have gone through an expensive
health crisis or a divorce or perhaps
someone has just gotten in over their
head with debt. It's very easy in to-
day's consumer driven society for that
to happen," said Sanders.
Sanders offers a free initial consul-
tation with no set time limit on it. "It
might take 20 minutes or it might
take two hours, it just depends of the
client's individual set of circumstanc-
es," he said. "We can meet at their
home or in my office, we can even so
it over the phone if I they can provide
me with the financial information we
need to discuss their situation." Sand-
ers says that he can often offer other
solutions besides bankruptcy such
as re-negotiating payment schedules
with creditors or reorganizing per-
sonal finances. "For example, I often
have people who can avoid bankrupt-
cy if they just get out from under the
burden of a house they can no longer

Gabber July 30 August 5, 2009


afford because of a job loss or some
other situation," he noted.
He moved to the Tampa Bay area
in July 2005 from Atlanta where he
was a partner/owner of Hamilton &
Sanders, LLC a firm specializing in
consumer bankruptcy and real es-
tate closings. The firm regularly filed
between 40-60 bankruptcy cases a
month. Prior to that he worked for
three other major law firms in Atlan-
ta from 1992 to 2003. All three firms
specialized in consumer bankruptcy
cases. He began his career as a staff
attorney for the United States Trust-
ee in Atlanta. He is licensed to prac-
tice law in both Florida and Georgia.
"I like what I do because I feel like I
can help people get a fresh start," said
Sanders. "When you have financial
difficulties it can really affect your
entire life. It has negative implica-
tions on you emotionally and it can
even damage or ruin your personal
relationships. I do try and encourage
people to come see me early on, even
if they are just starting to get behind
in payments or feel they are in over
their head. If you can start working
with an attorney from the very start
it can really reduce your stress level
as I can stop harassing creditor calls.
I can also see if we can work out ar-
rangements that a creditor might not
consider when working directly with
my client."
"Since the initial consultation is
free, you really don't have anything
to lose to meet with me and we can


assess your situation and see how
it might be best for you to proceed.
Bankruptcy can be one solution to
getting back on your feet financially,
but it may not be the best or only so-
lution for you. As an experienced pro-
fessional, I can help you sort through
those issues and see what is right for
you," he noted.
Sanders has held a number of semi-
nars and written professional papers
concerning bankruptcy law in gen-
eral, ECF requirements and new is-

Outside of the courtroom, Sanders
lives in an unusual home in Gulfport
that was one of the featured prop-
erties in last year's Pink Flamingo
Tour of Homes. It has a tree grow-
ing right up through the floor and
up through the ceiling of his kitchen.
He has three dogs and a cat. When
he was living in Atlanta he was very
involved with helping raise funds for
a number of AIDS service organiza-

Are Trusts Only for
the Super-Rich?
While it is true that you should
have a fair amount of assets before
you consider setting up a trust, a
trust is no longer the province of the
"super-rich."
Simply stated, a trust is a legal
document that makes it possible for
you to put aside some of your money
and direct how it will be used upon
your death or in some form of trust,
while you're alive. A trust may also
ease your tax bite.
A trust generally offers several ad-
vantages: among them, the assets
don't have to go through probate,
which saves time and money. Ad-
ditionally, you may be able to main-
tain control over the trust assets
while you're alive and capable; sick
and incapable; or as part of an es-
tate plan at your death.
Many individuals and families
have found that trusts offer a num-
ber of interesting financial planning
opportunities. Even where your es-
tate plan calls for all the assets of
the first-to-die spouse to pass to the
surviving spouse under the unlim-


ited marital estate tax deduction,
significant estate tax may be due on
the death of the surviving spouse.
Proper use of carefully drafted non-
marital trusts for the benefit of the
surviving spouse and/or children
may keep these assets out of the sur-
viving spouse's estate and reduce the
overall tax bite on the estate plan.
So-called "living trusts" have be-
come very popular with those inter-
ested in avoiding the expense, delay
and publicity of probate; while al-
lowing the grantor to maintain con-
trol over the trust assets during his
or her lifetime, if capable and com-
petent.
The type of trust you use depends
on your personal situation and the
advice you receive from a legal ex-
pert. Since there are many types of
trusts, only a complete evaluation of
your family's needs will determine
which trust should be used.

Train to Become
a Parent Aide
Volunteer candidates for the
Parent Aide Program will gather
at Help A Child in August to begin
the training process required before
being matched with a family who is
looking for a mentor and role model
for positive and successful parenting.
Bi-lingual volunteer candidates for
their Spanish Services Unit will also
be attending.
Children are the beneficiaries when
a parent has gained more confidence
and expertise in their parenting
abilities, stress management skills
and especially when they exhibit
calm consistency in dealing with
their children's behavior.

Old Dogs and Children
and Shady Summertime
In the early 1970s, Tom T. Hall had a
hit with "Old Dogs and Children and
Watermelon Wine." The song drifts
off with, "That night I dreamed in
peaceful sleep of shady summertime.
Of old dogs and children and
watermelon wine."
It's a storytelling song, and as you
can probably tell from the last line,
it's a story that wraps itself around
you, tucking you into the warmth of
family, love and simple pleasures. It's
a story with a happy ending.
Most stories about dogs and
children are good ones, reminders of
easy times and unconditional love.
This week brought a story of another
kind.
On Monday afternoon, Michael and
Chrissie Smith of Lexington, Ky.,
discovered their newborn son nestled
in the jaws of a family dog that had


snatched the child from his crib and
carried him to the backyard. Four-day-
old Alexander James Smith suffered
two collapsed lungs, a skull fracture
and numerous cuts and bruises. He
is in critical condition but expected to
survive.
It's always difficult to write about
these stories. There's so much sorrow
and regret and replaying of what
went wrong and how this might have
been prevented. But a line from the
story by the Associate Press hit me
square in the gut: "Smith said he was
preparing to leave for the store to buy
various baby items, including a video
monitor that he now believes could
have prevented the entire ordeal."
Ever try to drop a penny and catch
it?
The idea that a video monitor -- even
one in every room -- could prevent this
kind of tragedy is dangerous. Video
monitors are helpful in keeping an
eye on your child -- but not in keeping


you close enough to thwart a dog bite.
And when it comes to an infant, one
bite is all it takes.
The dog's name is Dakota. Four-
year-old Dakota is a Native American
Indian dog and one of three dogs in
the Smith household, none of which
has any history of aggression. Dakota
does, however, have a record of filching
household items and depositing them
in the backyard.
Dakota is currently under the care
of Jessamine County Animal Control.
Her future is as uncertain as the
little boy's. While her owners don't
want her back, they do make a point
of clarifying that "it wasn't a vicious
dog attack." Smith told the AP that
Dakota "had A.J. for 10 minutes on
her own, and ifyou look at A.J.'s belly,
there's about 100 little marks. All the
dog had to do was one bite and A.J.
wouldn't be here."
No, a video monitor isn't the answer.
And neither is complete confidence
that your dog is not aggressive. The
answer requires no fancy gadgets, no
formal training, no equipment of any
kind.
The answer is this: Never leave a
dog and a small child alone in a room
together. No matter the dog, no matter
the number of monitoring devices, no
matter the notion that you'll only be
gone a second.
It's a plain and simple solution. But
sometimes simple's the surest path
to gentle memories of old dogs and
children and shady summertime.

Adopt a Retired Racer
Meet Jackie, a newly retired black and brindle female.
She is a sweet smiley girl somewhat shy initially,
but warms up with familiarity. She has a playful
and outgoing personality that emerges even more
quickly when she's around her sister, CiCi who was
in the Gabber two weeks ago. Jackie chatters and
aits when excited, and tends to jump when in play,
so a greyhound experienced family w/older (12+) kids
would be ideal for her. We'd enjoy seeing these two
girls remain together, if possible, as they really are wonderful friends. If you
would like to meet Jackie or any of our other greyhounds, please call Greyhound
Pets of America on (727) 595-7852, visit our website: www.greyhoundpets.com
ar see us at the Tyrone PetSmart on most Sundays from noon to 2 p.m. Call first

your home and family, now's the
time to learn more. AFS, the leading
international high school student
exchange program, needs families in
our community to host high school
students for an academic year or six
months. Students arrive in August.
All kinds of families can host--
two-parent households with young
children or teenagers, single-parent
families, families with adopted
children, foster parents, as well as
couples and single people who do not
have children or who have grown
children. One of the most important
characteristics of a host family is
being eager and excited to share your
life and activities while providing
the same kind of care, support, and
comfort as you would to your own
child or family members.


AFS students come from more than
40 countries and represent many
different cultural and socioeconomic
backgrounds. Local AFS Volunteers
enroll students in high school and
support students and their families
to help both gain the most from
their experience. In addition to host
families, AFS needs people who are
interested in becoming volunteer
liaisons to work locally with families
and their hosted students. Anyone
interested in learning more about
hosting or volunteering with AFS
should visit www.afsusa.org/
hostfamily or call 1-800-876-2377.

Local Obituaries


CLEAR, DONALD
K., 71, of St. Peters-
burg, left to be with
the Lord on Satur-
day, July 11, 2009.
He was born in Hox-
ie, KS and moved
to Lisle, IL with his
family when he was very young.
Don was 12 when he started work-
ing in his dad's auto repair shop and
began his adult working career in
1953 as a bag boy and stock clerk
with National Tea Company, a large
grocery store chain and was quickly
promoted to management positions,
becoming the company's youngest
Store Manager at the age of 20. In
1958, Don married his high school
sweetheart, Joan Gregor. They
made their home in the Brookridge
subdivision of Downers Grove where
they raised two daughters. Don
enlisted in the Army Reserve and
received an Honorable Discharge
in 1963 after earning the rank of
Sergeant First Class. In 1969 Don
was named National Tea Company's
Store Manager of the Year (Chicago)
and was then elected Store Manager
of the Year for all divisions of Na-
tional and its subsidiaries. In the
early 1970's, Don completed Man-
agement classes at Illinois Benedec-
tine College and Cornell University.
Don ended his tenure in 1975 as Na-
tional Tea's Regional Vice President
of the Midwest Division. In 1976,
Don started Donino's Family Foods,
an independent grocery chain with
stores in Lisle, Westmont, Aurora
and Willowbrook, IL. He served
on the Westmont Chamber of Com-
merce for many years. Don retired
from Donino's in 1985 and spent
time traveling with Joan. Don's ca-
reer as a commercial Real Estate
Broker began in 1987 and continued
until his death. In 1997, Don and


Joan fulfilled a lifelong dream and
moved from their home in Down-
ers Grove to Broadwater, a water-
front community in St. Petersburg,
FL. Don's passion was his family,
friends, boating and cruising. He
was happiest when near, in or on
the water! Don was a past member
of the Pass-A-Grille Yacht Club and
past board member of the Broadwa-
ter Civic Association. Don was a de-
voted husband, father, uncle, broth-
er and son. One of his greatest joys
was being "Poppa" to his grandchil-
dren and their friends. Don was an
exceptionally loving and principled
man who faced many serious health
challenges with uncommon humor,
determination and a strong will to
triumph. He fought very hard to
stay with us and succeeded in giving
us many more years than we dared
hope. We were blessed to have him
with us and will miss him so very
much. Don was preceded in death by
his parents, Alva and Dorothy Clear;
sister Donna Reinbacher Parker;
sister-in-law Lynn Brauer; brother-
in-law Bernie Siewak; niece Sue
Marker and nephew Bernie Siewak,
Jr. Don is survived by Joan Clear,
his beloved wife of 51 years; sister
and brother-in-law Anna and Joe
Ciesieski of Angola, IN; sister Mick-
ee Siewak of Sedona, AZ; daughters
Cassandra Holt and Kristin Berc-
ume; sons-in-law Gary Bercume and
Bob Holt; Gary and Heather Berc-
ume Jr.; grandchildren Corbin and
Shelby Bercume; Sierra and Sammi
Holt; Trevor, Cheyenne and Colton

This N' That in South Pasadena
By Sibylle Stajich
Good-bye South Pasadena HELLO Seminole!
Whenever my husband and I were going to move (13 times across the country!),
it was a great adventure a trip to an unknown area for us consisting of new
people, places and experiences. This was especially so for our sons who had to
change schools, friends and sport associations so many times. But we were all
together and it always worked out fine.
This time when I decided to move, I was by myself and had to wrestle with
decisions which often was quite difficult. The place I moved to is new to me. It
has certain restrictions that have to be obeyed, but on the other hand, it also
has more freedom from everyday chores and obligations. My apartment looks
familiar since I brought my own furnishings and yet it feels like a new place
that one day will be called home again.
I'm meeting new neighbors and now, after I have been here three weeks, I
am no longer the "new kid on the block" since others have moved in after me.
Since it isn't too far from South Pasadena, my thoughts stray quite often there
and I wish them all the best.
I hope this place will work out as well as the other ones did!

Somretlin' oH my mind
SBy Bill Northrop B_Northrop@theGabber.com

United Flight 93


I m not sure what I expected. I
had seen pictures of the area
and was familiar with the foot-
hills of the mountains to the east of
Pittsburgh. And, I knew that Flight
93 crashed near the edge of a large
field near a line of trees. I knew, too,
that the area is sparsely settled,
farms scattered here and there, with
a small village, Shanksville, only
a mile or two "down the road". The
larger town and county seat of Som-
erset is seven miles west and south
of the site.
There were signs to the site, but only
after heading in the general direction
on some old country roads. What was
once a small country lane that ap-
peared to have been crudely widened
and lightly paved, led across open
fields.
Cresting a small hill, the site spread
before us: rolling, open fields, a farm
house slightly to the right, directly in
front a rough, almost scraggly looking
area with gravel parking lot, small
building, and wire screen ten foot high
wall all encompassed by a two foot
high log barrier. In the background
was a string of huge windmills their
blades turning slowly in the wind
which blows nearly constantly. The
day was cloudless, a slightly chilly
summer late morning,
It took a moment to realize that this
volunteer-constructed, make-shift en-
closure, was not the actual crash site.


A quick look at the tree line 200 yards
to the right and seeing a small Ameri-
can flag and an incongruous now over-
grown mound of earth, it was obvious
where Flight 93 had bored into the
earth on September 11, 2001.
Still I was not particularly moved.
Curious, inquisitive, anxious to in-
quire, explore, yes, but I remained
somewhat detached. However, as I
stepped into the small memorial en-
closure, the flood of emotions came.
There on the ground, on the short
log walls, on the wire screens were
trinkets, painted stones, hand carved
toy airplanes, ornaments, coins, talis-
mans, rings, ball caps, written notes,
crosses, stars, perhaps a thousand or
more pieces of feelings left by thou-
sands of ordinary citizens who have
journeyed to this remote site.
Though unpolished, rough looking,
the site spoke of spontaneity, feel-
ing. The things left behind, though
simple a painted stone, a ring, an
old military insignia, were powerful.
Across the front, facing the crash site
were roughly cut wooden angel cross-
es, each one with the name of one of
the 59 passengers and crew aboard
Flight 93. The effect was spiritual, al-
most ghost-like. It was much easier to
cry than not to cry realizing that you
were not alone and that those who
died are not either.
To etch the memories, the U.S. Park
service guides who staff the site,


give short talks about the crash, the
passengers and crew and the other
crashes of September 11. There is
also the chilling, written transcript
of the radio transmissions taken from
the cockpit recorder.
As remote as the site may be, ap-
proximately 6,000 visitors come each
week. When we first arrived there
were only a handful of people. How-
ever, people kept coming and within
the hour a bus load of Amish from the
eastern part of the state pulled in as
well as several people on motorcycles.
Judging by the momentos and monu-
ments left behind, this has been a
motorcycle destination for years.
In an added touch, not part of the
organized memoriam, and about two
miles on a road running through
the site, there is a memorial church
founded by a retired Catholic priest
and made possible by donations from
84 lumber Company. Not only is there
a Bell, called "Thunder Bell", but bi-
ographies and momentos from each of
the passengers and crew of Flight 93.
Within the year, by the 10th anni-
versary of the terrorist attack on all
of us, this temporary memorial will
be converted, appropriately, to a per-
manent memorial depicting the final
flight path of Flight 93 and the hero-
ism of the passengers and crew who
probably prevented a disastrous at-
tack on the U.S. Capitol building or
the White House.
Like visiting the Twin Towers site,
or the Pentagon site, this is worth the
time and effort. It is only one and a
half hours from Pittsburgh. It is well
that we, the people, keep alive the
memory of 9/11 and the people who
died in the attacks as well as those
in the military who have died mak-
ing certain that this does not happen
again on our soil.

RUSH'S Reality


A satirical look at the world around us.


By Anne Rush


Work with the public. Let me tell
you, folks are cranky pants out
there. I think it's the recession.
I think people feel that there are so
many things out of their control, that
when they have a complaint or think
to themselves that "here's a thing I
can actually DO something about",
they go all out. While on the receiving
end of this sometimes rage (and I'm
not exaggerating here), I don't take it
personally. I feel your pain. I under-
stand. Life is hard right now.
For my own part, I understand
that since I make less than $250K
a year, my taxes weren't supposed
to go up, and I suppose they techni-
cally haven't. But now I find that I'm
paying $10 for a pack of cigarettes,
my license renewal and car registra-
tion have gone up, my electric bill is
outrageous, my water bill has nearly
doubled and I have to pay a fee to
visit the beach.
I don't know how dollar stores man-
age to stay in business. That's just
false advertising. I'm gonna open a
chain of retail stores called "Every-
thing's $4!", because it's true.
I spend a ridiculous amount of time
in the toilet paper aisle of the gro-
cery store. I could easily grasp the
math associated with the cost be-
tween regular rolls and double rolls,
but lately they've thrown something
called "Large" rolls into the mix. I
don't know what a large roll means,
so I get very confused.
Seems that nothing is easy or simple
anymore. Everything is hard. I un-
derstand completely.
For example, somewhere along the
line I was delegated to calling in the
"to-go" lunch orders at my office. I'm
unclear how this happened. I wasn't
nominated. I didn' t campaign for this
position. I didn't make signs promis-
ing to be the best Lunch Lady ever and
to do things differently than my pre-
decessor if elected. It just worked out
that way. I suppose mostly because I
get hungry, too, and like mothers ev-
erywhere, I understand that if I don't
do it, it won't get done.


Why am I ranting about this? Be-
cause like life nowadays, it's not as
easy as you might think. Just yester-
day, I called in an order. It went like
this.
Me: I need a roast beef sandwich.
Them: Hot or cold?
Me: Cold.
Them: What do you want on it?
Me: Lettuce, tomato and mayo.
Them: What kind of bread?
Me: Wheat.
Them: Do you want the bread toast-
ed?
Me: I don't know, maybe, I didn't even
think about that, sure...why not? That
way it could be kinda hot and kinda
cold. What do you recommend?
Them: What else?
Me: I'd like a salad.
Them: Small or large?
Me: Large
Them: Anchovies?
Me: Does anyone actually ask for an-
chovies?
Them: You'd be surprised. What kind
of dressing?
Me: That's easy. I know this one! He
likes french.
Them: We're out of french today.
Me: Of course you are. OK, how about
Ranch?
Them: Buttermilk, creamy or garden
variety?
Me: Oh, crap. I don't know. It's not for
me. Do you have Thousand Island?
Them: South Pacific or Caribbean?
Me: What about blue cheese?
Them: Sky blue, royal blue or navy?
Me: OK, you know what? Forget the
dressing. I'll just tell him you screwed
up his order.
Them: Anything else?
Me: Yes, I'd like a cheeseburger with
ketchup only on a non-toasted white
bun. There!
Them: How would you like that
cooked?
Me: Crap! I don't know. I guess me-
dium?
Them: Is that all?
Me: No. I also need a couple of eggs.
Them: How would you like them
cooked?


Lighten Up!


Me: Overeasy.
Them: Home fries, hash browns or
grits?
Me: Home fries.
Them: What kind of toast?
Me: Wheat.
Them: Strawberry or grape jelly?
Me: Do you have something called All
Fruit?
Them: Sausage or bacon?
Me: Sausage.
Them: Patties or links?
Me: I really don't care anymore.
And if you think going to fast food is
any easier, you're wrong. This at least
should be simple, right? Take Arbys.
They're known for their roast beef and
I want a roast beef sandwich. Regular,
medium or large? Regular. What kind
of sauce? Sigh! Take Kentucky Fried.
I want a bucket of chicken. Original
or grilled? Even Wendy's. I want a
frosty. What flavor? What?! There's
more than chocolate? Are you kidding
me? In my book if it's not chocolate,
then it's not a frosty. It's simply just
another thick shake.
So, my point is, I know things are
hard out there. I feel your pain. But
look at what things you CAN do. I'm
no Suzy Orman or financial wizard,
but here's my advice.
Go into the bank signage business.
All these banks that were bought out
are eventually gonna have to change
their signs. There must be money
there and what better way to make
some money than from the very banks
you just bailed out? Think about it.
The unemployment office. Com-
plaints about not being able to get
through on the phone have prompted
the governor to hire more phone cen-
ter reps. And in the unlikely event
that the economy improves and the
unemployment office has the gall to
lay you off, at least you can monitor
your claim with inside knowledge.
Or maybe this. Bid on the printing
job for elevator inspection certificates
in Alaska. I can't speak for every
state in the union, but I know that
here in Florida the certificates in ev-
ery elevator are signed by the current
governor.
I know things are hard out there.
But there is reason for hope. So in the
meantime, please don't take it out on
me or the nice lady who tries to guide
you through your lunch order over
the phone. It turns out you have more
control over your life, or at least your
food, than you may think.

Coyotes have % v |
the general BROD POINTD
appearance of a
small, scrawny
German shepherd, but
several distinct features
distinguish them from dogs.
Coyotes:
* tend to be more slender than dogs /SLCND
* have wide, pointed ears NARnnou G
* have a long, tapered muzzle MUZZL
* have yellow eyes
Shave slender legs
- have small feet
* have an uncurled, bushy tail which is carried low to the ground
* generally have coats that are a grizzled-grey or reddish gray
color with a cream or white underside, although some
individuals may have blonde or dark grey coats
generally have a black-tipped tail with a black
spot near the base of the spine
typically weigh between 25 to 40 pounds
typically measure 4 feet long from the nose to the tip
S of the tail and stand 15 to 20 inches at the shoulder


City Urges Pet Owners to

Be Cautious of Coyotes

GULFPORT- In light of recent coyote sightings the Gulfport Fire Depart-
ment urges pet owners to take the following precautions:
Keep pets indoors or secured in an outdoor kennel. Environmental fac-
tors affect the time a coyote may appear. Coyotes also remain active during
daylight hours.
*Keep dogs on a leash at all times. If your yard does not have a fence,
use a leash to keep your pet close to you.
Carry something with you for protection such as an air horn, whistle,
walking stick or cane.
Confine small animals and birds that you cannot keep indoors to cov-
ered enclosures constructed of a heavy gauge wire mesh. Coyotes can break
through chicken wire.
*Put all trash bags inside trashcans and keep all outdoor trashcan lids
securely fastened to the containers. Place trash bins inside sheds, garages
or other enclosed structures.
*Pick fruit from trees as soon as it ripens, and pick up all fallen fruit.
Cut low hanging branches to avoid allowing coyotes to feed from trees.
Trim ground-level shrubbery.
Protect vegetable gardens with heavy-duty garden fences, or enclose
them with a greenhouse. Check with your local plant nursery for available
deterrent products.
*Keep your property well lit at night.
Close off crawl spaces under porches, decks and sheds. Coyotes use
such areas for resting and raising young.

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).

Holy Spirit, you who solves all problems, who
lights all roads so that I can attain my goal, you
wo ive 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 and mine.
