Audition for "Gulfport
- The Musical"
If you have been reading the Gabber
of late, you most likely know by
now that the City of Gulfport will
be celebrating its Centennial in
January, 2010. Throughout the whole
year of 2010, the City of Gulfport will
be celebrating this historical event
with many happenings throughout
the City.
As a kickoff to these festivities, the
City of Gulfport and the Gulfport
Community Players jointly will be
staging a brand new Gil Perlroth
musical at the Catherine A. Hickman
Theater of Gulfport entitled,
"Gulfport The Musical".
The director for this play will be
Daniel Harris and he will need a total
of 26 people with some very special
talents for his cast. The auditions
will be held on Sept. 14th and 15th at
the Back Door Theater at 7 p.m. The
Back Door Theater is located at 4919
17 Avenue S. in Gulfport. There is a
map showing how to get to the theater
on the Players' website at: http://
Daniel will need both males and
females, ranging in age from 6 to
80. He will also need 6 or 7 children,
ages 6 to 12 for the play. All people
will have to be able to sing. Bring
music in your own key to the
auditions, a pianist will be provided
by the Players. Be prepared to sing
a "bright" number (no love ballads,
please!). Two people must be able to
waltz. There will be ensemble, group,
and solo singing in the play.

Make sure that you have enough free
time for all the rehearsals required.
This play took over a year to write,
with the able assistance of Lynne
Brown as the historian to help out.
It is based on fact, although some
poetic license has been taken to make
it more enjoyable for the audiences.
This is a unique musical, both
entertaining and educational, and fit

Host an Exchange
Thinking about welcoming an
Exchange Student? Now's the time.
Sharing daily life with a teenager
from another country and culture
is a rich and rewarding experience,
and it's a wonderful way to bring
more understanding into the
world. If you've ever thought about
welcoming an exchange student into
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.

Holly Pelose, St. Pete: "I talk to the universe and I'm actively trying to incorporate
that philosophy into my life. I want to pull positive energy towards me. My way of pray-
ing is manifesting; I now ask for what I want from the universe. Before, I didn't ask for
anything. Then my Nana (my grandmother) died last year. We were very close and she
was very psychic. She had a wonderful energy and I still feel her around me a lot; she's
f always with me. I smell her scent around me and she comes to me in very vivid dreams.
In my dreams, she gave me some advice about a good friend of mine; she said that she
Should have some troubles but would be ok, and she is. My sister used to have horrible
headaches; she started praying and manifesting energy from the universe and now she
doesn't have them anymore. I'm looking for a job right now, but I know that I'll find one
because I've asked the universe for it. My mom was looking for a job as well; now she
has one and I know I'm next! However you pray, whether it's to God, Universe, Spirits
or Angels, I believe that the energy you send out comes back to you in a positive way.
That's the power of prayer to me."

Colleen Obrien, Gulfport: "Yes, I do believe in the power of prayer, regardless of
organized religion or spirituality. I feel there is a mind-body connection that is very
important to the healing process. Prayer can take many forms: including formal,
organized prayer, as well as feelings, thoughts and emotion. It's all about how you
see your own place in the world, how you relate to your surroundings and the people
around you. It's what you DO with those emotions that make your response so
important. I know someone in my life who's been ill; they were an addict, and that
through meditation and prayer have healed themselves. I thought about them and
sent them positive messages when they were sick; they're much better now. I have to
think that it helped; that it really does help to have the emotional support that helps
send positive energy towards them."

Eddie Talbot, Gulfport: "Absolutely, I definitely do and I know from experience.
I've had family members who have been sick. Prayer isn't about religion; it's about
a belief in yourself and a belief in your surroundings. If you're in a good place, have
good values and your heart is 100% in the right place, prayer can mean a lot. You can't
just pray when you have trouble or need; you need to be thankful for what you have
now. You have to realize that you're here now; breathing, standing, walking, making
a living. You have to pray all the time, it's not just 'I need, I need, I need'. It has to
be 'thank you, I'm grateful for what I have.' Life is too short and we should be thank-
ful for the things we have now. I pray every day. Once I only prayed for the things I
wanted, the material things. Now I'm grateful and happy for what I have; good health,
good friends and happiness."

Glen Wirtanen, St. Pete Beach: "Oh, absolutely... Prayers are our connection with
SGod. I believe that when we pray to God, he hears our prayers and give us guidance.
I've prayed for people who have been or are ill now. I believe the calmness that comes
from prayer is an essential part of physical healing. Prayer can be such a consoling
power that allows us to accept the certainty of God's healing hand, which then allows
us to heal. Personally, I know several cancer survivors that I feel were helped from
prayer and their own divine belief in God."

Thanks to
Anderson Lumber
Dear Editor: I would like to thank
Anderson Lumber (located at 666
49th St. So.) along with Troop 301
and all other contributors that donat-
ed to the success of my Eagle Scout
project. Fred, the owner of Anderson
Lumber not only donated the Brazil-
ian lumber for the tops of the picnic
tables, but also permitted the use of
his facility, tools, and his valuable
time on Saturday, July 25th from
8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. His contribution
during his busy week of getting mar-
ried and making plans enabled the
two beautiful tables to be completely
finished in one day. The tables are
on display at Boyd Hill Nature Pre-
serve. All donors are acknowledged
on a wooden plaque centered on each
table top, and everyone is encour-
aged to take advantage of the new-
est addition to the park. Thank you
to all those who donated their time,
and materials as well as those who
helped; all of you played a large role
in making my project a success.

Thanks to Nationwide
South Auto Repair
Dear Editor: I want to thank the
wonderful people at Nationwide
South Auto Repair on 49th Street for
their help, and kindness recently.
I was involved with an auto accident
at the intersection of 11lth Avenue S.
and 49th Street S. last Tuesday. A
driver turned right in front of me,
placing him at fault. The driver left
the scene of the accident. I was shak-
en but fortunately not seriously hurt
Witnesses at Nationwide cooperat-
ed with the Gulfport police and were
able to give them a full description of
the driver. I appreciated that since

the only thing I saw was the back
end of the vehicle as it sped away at
a high rate of speed. They also were
able to tell the police that I had the
green light and that it was obvious
that the other driver was at fault.
Most importantly the wonderful
owners/staff at Nationwide towed
my totaled vehicle out of the middle
of 49th Street to their lot adjacent to
their facility at no charge. They also
let me store the vehicle there in se-
cure location for a couple of days un-
til I was able to get it towed to my
house. There was no charge for that
The owners and staff epitomize ev-
erything good about Gulfport. Many,
many thanks for their assistance.

Thanks for Your Support

Thanks from
the Animals
Dear Editor: Get Rescued...in
Gulfport wishes to thank Ecco Bistro
& Tapas for donating a portion of
the sales from their Grand Opening
event on August 15 to help homeless
animals. Get Rescued co-founder
Mary O'Malley and volunteer Pam
Kennedy along with Little Dixie our
4 lb. chihuahua ambassador greeted
guests in the outdoor dining area
and answered questions concerning
the advantages of adoption versus
purchasing their next pet.

We also extend our greatest
appreciation to those who dined at the
restaurant and made the donations
possible. Every penny of the upwards
of $160 collected will be used to pay
vet bills. Medical costs are rising
daily as rescues work endlessly to
care for those animals awaiting their
forever home.
One again Gulfport has shown their
endless amount of kindness and why
we are all so very proud to live here.
Gulfport, from those who cannot
speak for themselves thank you!

Just Take My Check
and No One Gets Hurt!
Call me old-fashioned, but I like my
humble checkbook. You know, it's
that pad of paper curiously the same
size and shape as currency. On this
pad are paper checks, which allow
me to pay for things by filling in the
blanks and signing my name.
Recently I stopped in to a store in
my neighborhood to pick up treats for
my grand-pets. I admit I'm a sucker
for a certain mixed terrier named
Gromit and a burly bulldog named

I wrote a check for the purchase and
handed it to the clerk, who proceeded
to do all kinds of things with machines
and keypads. Finally, she handed me
a pen and a long piece of receipt pa-
per filled with tiny print that I rec-
ognized as terms and conditions. She
instructed me to "sign here."
What? I wasn't making a credit or
debit purchase. This was a check. I
responded to her request by saying
no, I wasn't going to sign the paper
because I had signed my check. I of-
fered my photo ID, reiterating that
one signature would be all she would

She responded by calling her man-
ager from some far-flung corner of the
store, which made me feel like a prob-
lem customer. The boss disgustedly
informed me that this was the new
store policy. All checks are handled
as "electronic checks" on the spot.
They are processed by TeleCheck,
which guarantees the transactions
(and charges the store a hefty fee for
the service, no doubt). By signing this
second document, I would, in fact,
give TeleCheck permission to reach
into my account and take the pur-
chase amount as I stood there. The
boss went on to say that my check
would be paid on the spot and that
they would actually give it back to me
as my receipt.
I am not totally foreign to this new
procedure. It happened to me once be-
fore and was so shocking that I went
along with it. Later, I regretted not
saying anything. I wasn't so keen
on the whole idea this time, either. I
felt manipulated. Even though I did
not produce a debit card to pay for
my purchase, this store's policy was
about to force me into a debit transac-
tion anyway.
I asked for my check back and added
that I simply would go to the really
big pet store just a few blocks away.
Apparently, I said the magic words.
All of a sudden, my check was just
fine; no additional signature was re-
quired. They bagged my items and
thanked me for shopping there.
As I walked to the car, the only thing
I regretted was that I didn't pay cash.
Good old U.S. currency, as maligned
as it is these days, would have saved
all of us a lot of hassle, to say nothing
of all the processing fees, something I
definitely will keep in mind the next
time I reach for my checkbook.

Protection And
Aggression Are Not
The Same Things
Not long ago, a woman called me,
very upset. She'd just dropped her
dog off at a shelter -- the same shelter
from which she had adopted him only
a few weeks earlier.
When I asked why she returned him,
she described what were obvious signs
of severe aggressive tendencies.
When I asked why she had taken
him home with her in the first place,
she said, "For protection."
OK. "For protection" makes sense. A
lot of people bring a dog into the fam-
ily for protection. But protection and
aggression are not the same things.
You don't want your iron-jawed pro-
tector protecting your home and be-
longings from you and your family.
And you don't want to have to protect
yourself and your family from little
Crime is a reality, and we all want
to feel safe. And we all have our ideas
of how to secure that feeling of safety.
Politicians and pop stars hire body-
guards for protection, but that'll cost
an arm and a leg. There's the home
alarm system --just a notch above the
car alarm in effectiveness. And some
folks keep a gun near the nightstand
-- intimidating, for sure, but not for
everyone. Still others get a dog.
If you're leaning toward the latter,
there are some things you should un-
derstand before diving in.



First, protection dogs should be so-
cial, friendly and loving -- with ev-
eryone. What? What about growling?
Snarling? Frothing at the mouth?
Anyone who argues that Cujo was
just doing his job should be forever
banned from the privilege of dog
ownership. Protection dogs are not
mean. They're highly trained, physi-
cally conditioned and mentally alert.
They're also incredibly loyal and lov-
ing -- when properly trained, social-
ized and treated with love, praise and
Which brings me to my next point:
Protect your protector by keeping him
inside the house at night, when those
with bad intentions are most likely to
lurk in nearby shadows.
Dogs will be dogs, and even the most
sophisticated and intelligent watch-
dog finds it hard to resist a juicy sir-
loin. If some ne'er-do-well drops an
enticing hunk of beef seasoned with
arsenic over your fence, your pal and
protector won't be around to help you
when you need it. So keep your dog
inside -- where he can keep you safe
and you can keep him safe.
In thinking about a dog in terms of
protection, ask yourself what you re-
ally want and what you really need.
Do you want a protection dog, trained
like a police dog, or do you really want
a burglar alarm with a heart?
Unless you're in some serious hot
water but don't yet qualify for the
Witness Protection Program, what
most of us really need is a dog who
will raise a little Cain if someone's
scratching on our window in the dead

Oak trees got you down?

of night. As Waylon Jennings once
sang, "You wanna get the rabbit out
the L-O-G, you gotta make a commo-
tion like a D-O-G."
Mr. Burglar makes a small noise,
little Fluffy makes a big ruckus, and
Mr. B has to pause and ask himself,
"Do I feel lucky?"
But if you think you really do want
and need a protection dog, first care-
fully consider the breed. Certain
breeds are better suited to provide
that kind of service than others, and
you might be surprised by what you
A 90-pound Bloodhound asleep at
the foot of your stairs might look ca-
pable of doing some serious damage,
but chances are a clown car full of
burglars could step right over him,
empty your jewelry drawers and head
out without so much as a "Woof!" A
7-pound, yappy Yorkshire terrier, on
the other hand, could easily be Mr.
B's worst nightmare.
Do your research. Decide what kind
of protection you need. Be aware that
professionally trained protection dogs
are more expensive. Your local police
station may be able to provide addi-
tional information on this option if
you feel it's the one for you.
Whatever you do, know the differ-
ence between protection and aggres-
sion. Protection is a legitimate reason
to get a dog, but there is no reason at
all to live with aggression.

The Last Summer Concert on the Point

By Leigh Clifton

The recent persistent rain
showers last Friday let up just
long enough for the Summer
Concert on the Point to conclude
the series, with the band Ozona
playing rocking sets of 70's, 80's
and 90's dance music to a die-
hard crowd of about 350 people.
The ground was just dry enough
to sit on blanket and enjoy the
music with a cool beverage.
Chamber of Commerce Presi-
dent Lori Rosso also had an an-
nouncement for the crowd; the
Chamber, in conjunction with
the City and the Merchant's As-
sociation, is exploring expanding
the Concerts on the Point into
the fall season, from October
through December. A potential
stumbling block appears to
be that any organization that
holds these types of events may
only pull three permits to serve
alcohol in a given year. Rosso
explained that all three organi-
zations are in discussions and
hope to come to a resolution
about the permitting, which
would allow the concerts to Dubbed the "Cisco Kid" by the band, four year old
resume in October. Rosso said Aston Van Roten got up on stage with the band
Ozona and rocked his white guitar to the famous
that the overwhelming success War song. Ashton is the grand nephew of Tim
of the series been a boon to Coppola.
summer tourism for Gulfport.
"We are so pleased with how many people have been coming to Gulfport
for the concerts; people come from Tampa, Largo, Seminole and Sarasota!
This can only be a positive thing for Gulfport; it also brings tourists in for
the local merchants as well. The restaurants have all agreed stay open
later and serve food after the shows. It's been a real cooperative effort
from the City and the merchants," she said.
Anne-Betty Arthur, in visiting from Charleston, West Virginia was "ab-
solutely thrilled" with the idea of a free concert on the water.
"I think it's awesome," she gushed in a deep southern twang. "I never
expected this kind of thing from a little town like this!"
As Ozona played their last set, the lingering pink from the sunset gave
way to heavier clouds and a light rain started to fall. People started to
pack up their chairs, kids, families and dogs and head home. The rain
had held off just long enough.

Something on my mind
By Bill Northrop B_Northrop@theGabber.com

Throwing out the good with the bad?

A nd, another thing....about
medical care. Yes, we do have
o address problems in the
health care system starting with the
cost of Medicare and Medicaid and
extending to how to insure millions
who aren't. The question is how
much government should dictate.
Another way to address the prob-
lem was put to me by a British
friend who lives both in the U.S. and
the U.K. He's stayed out of the de-
bate he says because he doesn't re-
ally know enough about it. However,
in comparing the British system to
the U.S. system, consider where the
British system was when the reform
movement started and where the
U.S. system is now.
The first began after WW II when
care was minimal. The second begins
when care is high quality, easily ac-
cessible to the majority, accessible to
the poor but at high prices to gov-
ernment and those who are insured,
and is comparatively expensive rela-
tive to per capita costs and results.
In this view, the question is how
much of the good is destroyed by re-
forming the whole? In other words,
are we in danger of throwing the
baby out with the bath water? Or,
put another way, are we tearing
down the whole house to renovate a
few rooms?
So what should we focus on? The
first would be Medicare and Medic-
aid which are already government
operated and directed. How do we
cut costs without a degree of ration-
ing, or how do we raise more money
to pay for both since both are in fi-
nancial trouble?
The second would be malpractice
law suits. This is known as tort re-
form. We know with certainty that

medical care providers practice de-
fensive medicine. This goes hand-in-
hand with patients demanding more
tests and drugs. These cost billions
of dollars.
The third is providing a mechanism
to get real insurance competition by
permitting plans to cross state lines.
This is not without problems includ-
ing a leveling of costs where cheaper
insurance becomes more expensive
and vice versa.
A fourth would be dealing with
catastrophic health situations as
well as pre-existing conditions. This
cannot be done without raising costs
on some one or some entity or every-
A fifth would be discussing openly
and frankly end-of-life and begin-
ning of life care. Both cost huge
amounts. Few want to talk about
death and practical application of
medical care towards the end of it,
but we should. The problem is that a
government dictation of care ignores
differences in individuals.
As for the beginning of life, prema-
ture births cost billions. The U.S.
system, compared to the European,
uses heroic measures to save chil-
dren at such early stages (23 weeks).
This is costly and ineffective.
Whatever issues have to be ad-
dressed, the biggest is individual
responsibility. We do have an obli-
gation to take care of ourselves. We
shouldn't expect others to pay for our
excesses. Insurance is a shared cost
arrangement, but at what point do
those sharing the costs say, "whoa!"
Smoking, drinking, obesity, drugs,
dangerous behavior (reckless and
drunken driving, for instance), and
even sports all add to the costs of
medical care.

Meals on Wheels
Needs Drivers
Volunteers are needed to deliver hot,
nutritious meals to the homebound
throughout Pinellas County.
Volunteering for the Neighborly
Meals on Wheels program is a hands-
on, front line experience. If you have
11/ hours midday to help in your
own neighborhood, you could help
improve someone's life and make a
real difference in this critical area
of need. Meals are picked up at a
site near you and delivered to the
homebound in your area (maps and
directions are provided).
Many Pinellas County seniors are
living alone, too poor to buy food,
or too frail to shop and cook for
themselves. And the need is growing
every day. Do someone else a favor
and you will be doing yourself one!
Neighborly needs compassionate,
caring volunteers to share their time
with lonely, isolated seniors. Please
call Pat Hazell at 727-573-9444, ext.
291 to start helping your community

Gulfport Centennial Countdown Continues!

100 Week Countdown to 100 Years!

k^gC^ * IMM *-
This beautiful Gulfport home had a twin right across the street. When was
it built and where is it located? Answer next week.
Think you know the answer?
Send us an email with your answer, name and
phone number to News@theGabber.com

In just 60 weeks, Gulfport will
celebrate the centennial of its incorpora-
tion, October 12, 1910. We'll be remind-
ing you every week with an interesting
old photograph from the collection of the
Historical Museum. See if you can iden-
tify the people, places, and above all the
decade of each picture as it comes along.
To make it a little bit of a challenge, we
won't publish the correct caption until the
following week.

Samuel James Webb, pictured in last
week's photo, was elected mayor of
Gulfport in November 1929, defeating Al-
vah C. Roebuck by 145 to 73 votes. He
was reelected the next year and was run-
ning yet again in 1931, when he died in of-
fice. Some of his great-grandchildren are
still active citizens of Gulfport.

Gulfport Teen Unveils Trolley

Websitefor City's New Website

By Cathy Salustri

Gulfport residents and trolley
riders got a double bonus when
the city unveiled its new web
site (www.MyGulfport.us) this
week: the city's reduced its
costs and added a substantial
amount of information about
the Gulfport Connector Trolley.
After Boca Ciega High
freshman Zachary Stoler read
an article about the Connector
Trolley and its budget in The
Gabber, he got the idea to
create web pages for the trolley.
Thanks to Stoler, on the city's
new web site riders can access
fare information, ridership
statistics, and schedules.
Stoler told The Gabber he
built the web pages for free "to
contribute to the city." Stoler
said it took him about 20 hours
over the course of one week to
create the web pages.
Information Technology
Director Sam Rivera changed
the city's old website to the new, more easily remembered web address this
week. The new website includes the new trolley information and also saves
the city a little money.
"We're saving $10 a month with the new web site," Rivera explained. When
the Information Technology department investigated prices, they found that
by switching web hosting companies (from Verizon to GoDaddy) they would
save $10 every month and get unlimited space on GoDaddy's servers.
Because the city has unlimited space on the servers Rivera says he now can
post videos on the website.
"It will take a couple of days to get the videos posted," he explained, so
council meetings and workshops won't appear the immediately. Rivera added
that the city will continue to put the streaming videos online, so anyone who
cares to may watch city meetings live at www.MyGulfport.us.

Habitat for Humanity Builds in St. Pete.

Volunteers set the gables for the porch roof at the Habitat for Humanity build in St. Pete
last Saturday morning. More that 30 volunteers assisted in community-based effort for the
Christina Teartt family.

By Leigh Clifton
The Christian based organization
Habitat for Humanity is in the
middle of three-month build in St.
Petersburg that joined together
about 30 volunteers from St. Paul's
Catholic Church, the Pinellas
Democratic party, neighbors and
community activists from all walks
of life early last Saturday morning.
In a time when so many people are
desperate for any kind of home and
shelter, the Christina Teartt family
is the latest recipient of the hard
work and generosity of these friends
and strangers alike.
To be eligible to be a recipient of
a Habitat for Humanity built-home,
the prospective homeowner must
complete 250 community service
hours if single and 350 as a couple
or family. According to the Habitat
for Humanity website, Habitat is
not a giveaway program. In addition
to a down payment and monthly
mortgage payments, homeowners
invest hundreds of hours of their own
labor (sweat equity) into building
their Habitat house and the houses
of others. Habitat houses are sold
to partner families at no profit and
financed with affordable loans. The
homeowners' monthly mortgage
payments are then used to build still
more Habitat houses. Materials are
often donated by lumber supply yards
like Home Depot and Lowes and the

builders are engineers, architects
and every-day people who donate
their time and individual skills to the
"It truly is a community effort," the
building site hostess and neighbor
Catherine Hubbard said smiling.
She was dressed in a white hard hat
and bright pink Habitat shirt that
read 'As girls we played with houses;
as women we build them.' Hubbard
lives across the street from the build
and as site hostess she makes sure
that there is plenty of water, fruit
and coffee for the volunteers. She
also pitches in with the hammer and
nails when needed.
The local Starbucks donated the
large green coffee-filled urn and Save-
A-Lot donated the fresh fruit. The
Home Depot truck had just dropped
of a donated pallet of lumber and
materials. The home will be a "green"
home as well as hurricane resistant;
large, thick columns of concrete are
visible where the porch begins and
trusses are now going up to stabilize
the roof.
The volunteers on the build
come from all walks of life; Dawn
Hunter, Vice-Chair for the Pinellas
Democratic Party, put out an email
fellow Democrats. Of the ten people
that signed up, six were on site as of
9 a.m. on Saturday and Dawn was
really pleased with the turnout.
"I've done about five builds, at
various stages," she said. "Habitat

is one of my favorite charities to
volunteer with because there truly
is a sense of community here. There
are people here who are electricians,
architects, engineers and economists
and we all come together and offer
our skills to serve others. It's a great
sense of accomplishment and I want
to get Democrats more involved in
our community. This is a great way
to do that."
Some of the volunteers are old
hands at this; Cliff Molaskey, from
Crescent Heights is an engineer and
has been volunteering for Habitat for
years through his church St. Paul's
Catholic Church. In fact, there can
be as many as seven to ten people
from the church on any build. Tom
Oberhofer has been volunteering
since 1994. Adam Honick, age
19, came on his skateboard from
downtown St. Pete; this is his second
build. He says he'll help finish with
the project.
"It's always good to help someone,"
he said. "It gives me a sense of
accomplishment knowing that I
helped someone who needed it."
The pounding of hammers, the
buzz of the circular saw and the
good-natured bantering among
the volunteers pierced the early
morning, already sweltering with
typical Florida summertime sizzle,
but nobody seemed to mind.... They
had a house to finish.

The Many Faces of Artist Kim Dohrman

By Leigh Clifton

Artist Kim Dohrman has
a fascination with faces...
her current art reflects
several mediums that she
has used to portray an
array of them; portraits,
really, of not just one,
but many people within
the piece. She credits
this present direction to
a stream of consciousness
that she describes "almost
automatic". Her gallery
opening at the Catherine
Hickman Theatre features
an entire collection of
faces, all with distinctive
expressions. They
represent the product of
steady evolution in her

Kim Dohrman stands next to her painting, Project A. She
said the work evolved and at one time, included the many
faces of friends and people she knew throughout her life.
Her artist exhibit of faces will be at the Catherine Hickman
Theatre through August 31, 2009.

"I was living in North Dakota and has a fairly large studio, where I worked
steadily for about three hours a day. For four years there, I was able to surround
myself with my art, often working on several at a time. I would take one down
to work on, and then rotate on to another one. At one point, I had about 30
pieces going at the same time."
During that time, Dohrman was able to devote all her time to her art, and
experimented with several different mediums, including two that, according to
the art world, should never be mixed; oil and acrylic. The result is a wonderful,
haunting face she calls Process A.
"I never start a painting with a conscious face in my mind; as my paintings
evolve, I start to notice that they resemble different people in my life at different
times. When I used the oil and acrylics, it became apparent that, like my own
stream of thought, the painting kept changing, as the acrylic started to crack
and take different shapes. It really represented to me the changing expressions
of a face. After that, it became a compulsion for me, to try and capture an
expression, a voice of the piece. I don't ever plan a piece; my art just evolves
from doing it," she explained.
Moving back to Florida, Dohrman began to work at Creative Clay, an artist
collaborative with mentally challenged member artists and guest artist who
act as mentors. But the eight hour day left her with little time to paint and she
had to discipline herself to make at least two hours after work to concentrate
on her art.
"I take all the emotion of the day and put it into my art. I wouldn't call myself
an academic artist; I don't try to create a perfect representation."
Dohrman's newest foray into mediums is Encaustics; painting with heated
pigmented wax on canvas, glass, metal, wood, claybord and even tile. She
paints her faces on a surface and while the paint is still wet, she uses a blank
piece of paper, vellum, canvas or whatever medium she has chosen, places it
on the wet paint and using either a pencil or a clay tool, draws the faces all in
about 30 seconds. The result is a monoprint, created from the original painting.
The faces are all different, unique and have wonderful expressions; some have
heavy-lidded eyes, others bright, sensual lip-sticked lips, still others seem to
follow you when you walk by. All seem to look like someone you might know...
About 50 people attended Dohrman's gallery showing at the Hickman Theatre
last week; her show will run there until August 31. Some of her oil paintings will
also be on display at The Long House in late September. The gallery show was
sponsored by City of Imagination, whose purpose is to promote the creativity of
local artists in Gulfport.

Clearwater Marine Aquarium: Not Just Dolphins
By Cathy Salustri

W H A T ,The Clearwater Marine Science Center (CMSC) opened in
S1972 as a nonprofit corporation. In 1980 the USDA designated
CMSC as a research facility. While other aquariums along Pinellas beaches failed,
the CMSC prospered. The city of Clearwater donated an unused water treatment
plant and CSMC converted it into an acceptable facility for dolphin and other marine
creatures. In 1984 Sunset Sam, the painting dolphin, made the CMSC famous. In the
1990s CMSC changed its name to the Clearwater Marine Aquarium.
Today people come to the Clearwater Marine Aquarium to see dolphin, pet sting
rays, and explore local waters. The facility rescues, rehabilitates and releases marine
mammals as well as turtles and other marine wildlife.

W H -H ,The Aquarium has four dolphins who live there full-time. These
dolphins include Nicholas, Indy, Panama and Winter (the dolphin
who swims with the assistance of a prosthetic tail.) The aquarium also houses otter,
turtles, stingray and fish, and the otter and stingray tanks have a permanent crowd of
kids clustered around each of them.

B E T Part: The Sea Life Safari, an add-on boat ride, lets kids and adults
B E ST alike discover the sealfe in their local water. On our boat ride our
tour guides netted starfish, toadfish, sponge, seahorses, and a bounty of other sea
life. Our group also had a chance to see a dolphin pup up close to the boat.

W O S Part: Because the dolphins at the Clearwater Marine
W O R SJ Aquarium can't function well--or at all- in the wild,
they'll spend the rest of their lives at the facility. While the trainers and vol-
unteers do a stupendous job of caring for these marine mammals, the idea of a
dolphin having to spend the rest of its life in captivity is heartbreaking.

A G I Question: Aquarium admission costs $11;

Excerpts heard at the August 18, 2009

Gulfport City Council Meeting

Public Comment

& Council Quotes

"I was reading the memorandum of understanding that Mr.
Minkoff prepared [and] I was really surprised that we're having
employees write their own contracts," Dotty Wolksi

"The interim city attorney will serve for a period of 90 days and
will not be a candidate" (for the permanent attorney position)
- Mayor Mike Yakes

"Half of that time has passed. What are you doing?" Dotty Wolski,
to Mayor Yakes about his above comment. The city received a proposal
from a company called Governance to help find an attorney.

"The city really shouldn't be in the business of going into
somebody's bank account." -Vice-Mayor Bob Worthington about
whether or not to offer online water bill payments.

"I just wanted to say-I have one last thing- call me Ted!"
-Bob Worthington, as Mayor Mike Yakes was poised to adjourn.

"I cannot imagine putting money in that man's pocket." -Al Davis,
about Rick Kriseman, who Davis called "instrumental" in defeating the
city's proposal for Clam Bayou.

"His comment was that we were selfish and ignorant. I thought
that was kind of an odd start."- Al Davis, about councilman Sam

"I'm getting tired of getting hate mail." Al Davis

"I just wanted to offer a resource-I hope-to council. Six months
ago we began an Internet site called GulfportWatchdog.com;
it's become a really interesting forum for ideas. I hope that you,
as council, will occasionally take a look at it. Use some of those
ideas. It's not a bad thing for city council to know what people
think."-Bob Newcomb

"Sanibel probably has a full-time decorator, too." Jerry O'Regan
on whether or not a small town like Gulfport needs a full-time attorney
like Sanibel does.

Premier Choice: Flood Insurance That Pays You

By Cathy Salustri

V ery few people get a warm,
fuzzy feeling in their stomach
when they think of their
insurance company. The feeling
most people describe would likely fall
somewhere on the opposite end of the
spectrum from "warm and fuzzy."
Jeff DeNight wants to change that.
Jeff co-owns two insurance agen-
cies, Bentley-DeNight Insurance
Services, a full service, independent,
Trusted Choice agency that offers
business, auto, home, commercial,
life, boat, motorcycle, RV and um-
brella policies. He also owns Premier
Choice Rebate Flood Insurance, a
flood insurance agency that sells
nothing but flood insurance.
How, you may wonder, is any of this
information supposed to make you
feel good about insurance?
"We're the only flood insurance
agency that offers cash rebates back
to all our customers," Jeff explains.
So if you buy your flood insurance
through Premier Choice, you'll get at
least seven percent of your annual
premium (before fees and taxes) back
in the form of a rebate check.
"We give the money back to our
customers either at inception--if
they're new policy holders-- and then
again every subsequent year they
renew... forever," Jeff says.
Here's how the rebate works:
You get seven percent Il
of your policy l "
back the first
year. Every
year for the next five
years you receive one percent more
back. For example, the second year
you'll get eight percent back, the
third year you'll get nine percent
back, and so on until you get to the
sixth year. In the sixth year and
every year following, customers will
get 12 percent back as a rebate.
This rebate can add up to thousands
of dollars for the life of your home
or business policy. Premier Choice
Flood Insurance mails the rebate
check roughly two months after
your flood policy goes into effect or
renews. The company sends you a
check rather than taking the money

Gabber August 20 August 26, 2009

Jeff DeNight co-owns Bentley-DeNight Insurance Services, a full service,
independent, Trusted Choice agency, and Premier Choice Rebate Flood
Insurance, a flood insurance agency that shares its commissions with its

off the premium so you can have
the cash in your hand and spend
it on whatever you choose- clothes,
dinner out, or a show.
So, you must wonder. (U
does that 2... H 1 hL

&15xv"- mean
that Premier Choice
Flood Insurance policies cost
more than other flood insurance
Nope, Jeff says. FEMA is the only
flood insurance provider, so the cost
is the same no matter what flood
insurance company you use. The
policies written by his agency are
no different than policies written
by other agencies; Their polcies are
underwritten and supported by the
federal government through FEMA.
The only difference is that Premier
Choice Flood Insurance gives you
money back.
So where does that money come
from? It comes from the agency.
FEMA pays a commission to the
Pad Advertisement-

agencies that write their policies.
Jeff and his agency are sharing that
commission with their customers.
Jeff says Premier
Choice can afford
0 to share its
LL commission with
its customers
since all the owners are hands-
on and they run a lean, efficient
Besides, Jeff says, things are
tough for everyone, and if his
company has a little to share with
the community, it's happy to do so.
"With the economy the way it is,
we thought it would be nice to give
something back, especially since
insurance has such a negative
connotation," Jeff says.
Maybe not anymore.

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
