Worthington Will Not
Run For Re-Election
By Cathy Salustri

Vice-Mayor Bob
Worthington has
announced that
when elections
come around next
March, he will not
run for reelection.
Worthington, who
has served on I
council for eight years, says that he
wants to focus on his family.
"I'm going get on with retirement and
my wife and I can do a little relaxing
traveling around Florida," Worthington,
63, told The Gabber. lN 1l grandkids are
always wanting to go out on the boat. I
enjoy fishing very much and snorkeling
and that sort of thing; I want to be
able to do those sort of things while I'm
plenty healthy and can do them."
Worthington has seven grandchildren,
ranging in age from five months to 18
years old.

American Legion Post 125 observes Veteran's Day
By Leigh Clifton
The America Legion Post 125
commemorated Veteran's Day
last week with a gathering on
the grounds, a rifle salute and
speeches about the importance
of remembering the brave men
and women who fought to keep
America free. About 50 people
listened as Post Commander
Ray Camtrell's speech came
from the heart in his address to
the crowd.
"The ceremony today was a
little more touching because
of the recent circumstances in
Post 125 Chaplain Justine Morrison gives the benediction at the
SeTexas. I think everyone page 2 Legion's Veteran's Day observance last Wednesday.
See Vetrans, page 2

Veterans, from front page
was touched because it happened so close to home. Those other conflicts may be
thousands of miles away, but they're just as close to home to us. Those who serve
now and those who served before us deserve our respect and gratitude."
Gulfport Mayor Yakes was also a speaker and thanked those who served.
"Every one of those soldiers who has served gives us the opportunity to be
better. Their sacrifice means our freedom. Freedom isn't free."
A three volley round from the legion Color Guard was followed by the mournful
taps, played by Color Guardsman Rick Lallier. After the ceremony, the legion
invited everyone to stay for hot dogs and hamburgers.

Signs Abound
GULFPORT- Despite the Planning
and Zoning Board's recommendation
against it, Gulfport city council
approved a sign ordinance that will
allow bench signs and bus stop signs.
Representative Rick Kriseman
spoke on behalf of the program,
which would allow nonprofit groups
to provide benches as well as
advertising for the benches.
According to Kriseman, the
organization would provide the
benches and place them where the
city wished. He said the city would
bear none of the costs but have
discretion over where to place them.
He also said that only nonprofit
organizations could advertise on the
Jennifer Salmon pointed out that
Kriseman's description differed
from what the Planning and Zoning
board saw on paper.
Councilman Sam Henderson
intimated he would prefer the bus
stop signs not be lit, but Vice-Mayor
Bob Worthington explained the

lights were low density and would
offer comfort to women and children
who had to wait for the bus at night.
Worthington suggested people
consider whether or not they wanted
their wives and children waiting at
an unlit bus stop at night.
Ultimately council voted
unanimously to pass the ordinance.
"The way this is set up is good,"
Councilwoman Michele King said.

New Police Cars for City
GULFPORT-When police cars
reach 80,000, the city replaces
them. Tuesday night at council
meeting the city council approved
the purchase of three new Dodge
Chargers. According to the United
States Environmental Protection
Agency these 8-cylinder vehicles will
not only get the same gas mileage as
their 6-cylinder cousins, they will
also get better gas mileage than
the Ford Crown Victoria Flex Fuel

Shop local Nov. 21
By Kate Bradshaw
Speeding though the frenzied
mall crowd, picking up China-made
cookie-cutter goods for those you
love seems to be ritual these days,
but there are numerous reasons
that it doesn't have to and perhaps
shouldn't-be. Consider the following:
leisurely wandering down Beach
Boulevard, Corey Avenue or Pass-
A-Grille's Eight Avenue, checking
out boutiques and patronizing local
restaurants. Sure, the outcome of
such a stroll may be less predictable
than those of frantically perusing
a mall, but what you find will be
more meaningful and hard to find
Then there's the local economy to
Doing as much of your Christmas
shopping at locally-based retailers
will serve as an investment in your
Substantially more money remains
within a given area when you
shop local versus when you give
your money to a retailer whose
corporate headquarters are in Ohio
or California.
A study by the Austin Independent
Business Alliance found that $13 of
every $100 spent at a chain store
stayed in the community, while
$45 of every $100 stayed in the
community when shoppers bought
from local retailers.
On Saturday, Novermber 21, the
American Independent Business
Alliance is encouraging consumers
to do all of their shopping and dining
out at locally-owned establishments.
This may be harder than it seems.

Uncertainty Abounds
Over BCHS Site Plan
GULFPORT-Pending the city's
approval the Pinellas County School
Board will build a ball field and more
parking as part of its new site plan
for Boca Ciega High School. However,
the seven suited representatives who
arrived at Tuesday night's council
meeting didn't have enough answers
to satisfy council. Additionally, the
representatives had a different site
plan than the ones council and city
staff received from the school board
earlier in the day.
Councilman Sam Henderson
expressed concern about lighting a
ball field close to homes. School board
representatives said they had no
intention to light the new ball field
but could not promise that the school
board would not install lights at a
later date.
"We just want to be on the record,
we want someone from the Pinellas
County School Board say we agree
with you, we're not going to light he
ball park," Interim City Manager
Jim O'Reilly told the school board
representatives when they admitted
that if the school raised the money
they would approve lighting the ball
Vice mayor Bob Worthington noted
that the school board plans put a ball
field in an area that was a swamp.
Worthington said he had concerns
that the clay infield would wash
away in heavy rains, but school board
officials said the ball field would have
a grass infield.
"Somehow I know you must believe
this deep in your heart but I just
don't," Worthington said.
"You need to do some core sampling.
You may be surprised. It's definitely
nothing to build a building on,"
Councilwoman Judy Ryerson said,
adding that she attended Boca Ciega
High School and knew from experience
the field would flood. At one point,
she said, the field had fill added over
Both Worthington and Henderson
said that they also had concerns
about relocating the Gulfport spur of
the Pinellas trail and creating a dark,
closed-in area that provided an ideal
place for crime.

city hall have copies of the site plan

Flamingo Resort to bring you two Art Walks on one day. From 10 a.m. to 4
p.m., Studio Mares at the Flamingo Resort (4601 34th Street S. in St. Peters-
burg) will exhibit art from renowned local, American and international artists.
Displays will be set up surrounding the court yard of the resort, billed as the
largest GLBT resort in the Southeast. The fun continues with Gulfport's popu-
lar Art Walk from 6 to 10 p.m. In addition to the local artists and crafters set
up along Beach Blvd., an exhibit of art sponsored by Studio Mares will take
place at Gulfport's Peninsula Inn in the heart of the Waterfront Art District
during Art Walk hours. Water taxi rides will be available for participants to
travel back and forth from the resort to Gulfport for a nominal fee. For more
information about Studio Mares at the Flamingo Resort, contact Greg Powers

Upham Project
Discussion Postponed
By Kate Bradshaw

Stewardship Committee was due
to hold a meeting to discuss the
county's proposed plans for a beach
stabilization project that would start
in 2012 at the earliest.
The county hopes to start replacing
the beach's T-groins with more
effective mechanisms for holding in
the sand at Upham Beach in 2012
or 2013. The state will provide half
of the pi'1'.-. I's funding while the
Pinellas County Tourist Development
Council (bed tax) funds will cover the
other half.
Andy Squires, Assistant Director of
the Pinellas County Department of
Environmental Management, says
that permanent rock structures will
replace T-groins.
The county has proposed four
different options for doing this;
each had a different price as well
as a different impact on certain key
Upham Beach characteristics like
beach width and surf break.
Upham Beach, which had once been
one of the Gulf Coast's most popular
surf spots, lost much of its surf after
the T-groins were installed, to the
chagrin of local surfers.
City of St. Pete Beach Public Services
Director Stephen Hallock says that
there has been much public concern
over the issue.
The City of St. Pete Beach will hold
a Beach Stewardship meeting this
Monday, November 23, at 6:30 p.m. -
one week after its scheduled date and
time. Hallock says that the committee
will make its recommendations on
the project to the City Commission.
Stakeholder comments are due to the
county by November 24.

South Pasadena Band
Holiday Concert
The South Pasadena Community
Band has announced that the annual
free holiday concert will be December
10 at 7:30 p.m. in the Boca Ciega
High School Auditorium.
"This is the most popular concert
in our season," said Musical Director
Max Millspaugh. The title of the
concert is "Happy Holidays". "This
year we have some newly published
arrangements that will include
Canadian Brass sounds, LeRoy
Anderson's "Sleigh Ride", the always
enjoyable "March of the Toys", and
from the pop charts of days gone by
"Baby It's Cold Outside", he said.
Mayor Kathleen Peters commented
that the Holidays are for friends, and
families. "We always look forward to
this concert because it brings out so
many of our neighbors and creates
such a festive atmosphere. We are
very pleased that we can share this
with the community. It is a highlight
of the year and the band is always
in top shape for the concert," she
concluded. "The music of the season
does lift everyone's spirit. This is our
gift to our citizens", the Mayor said.
Boca Ciega High School's new
auditorium is on the north side of
the school campus and it is handicap
accessible. Parking is available in
front of the school or in the parking
lot adjacent to the auditorium. People
will be on hand to direct arriving
patrons to parking and to the bus
unloading points. The concert is free.

Gulfport Has New City Manager- Almost
GULFPORT-City Council voted unanimously to appoint Interim City
Manager Jim O'Reilly as the permanent city manager but could not come
to terms on how much money they would pay him should they fire him at
any point, rendering the vote to make O'Reilly the permanent city manager
temporarily powerless.
O'Reilly asked for two years pay if the city fired him, something some
councilmembers said asked too much of the city.
Councilwoman Judy Ryerson said the 24-month severance clause did not
bother her because if the city fired him for cause they would not have to pay
it. However, the two-page letter of employment did not stipulate that, saying
only that if the city fired O'Reilly it would have to pay out two years worth of
salary, roughly $216,000.
"This severance is not based on performance or cause," Councilwoman
Michele King said. "If for any reason at all if he was let go, he would get two
years of severance. If he embezzled a million dollars we would have to pay him
two years of severance... that's not right." King added that the contract should
have a performance standard.
Councilman Sam Henderson said that he had concerns about the 24-month
clause because a new council may not want O'Reilly to serve, for whatever
reason, and that the city would have to foot the bill.
"I can't do 24 months. I don't know where that puts us. It saddens me to say
that, but I can't accept the terms on behalf of the city," Henderson said.
Worthington said he understood the request for the severance because the
council can dismiss a city manager "at the whim of three" of the five council
members; council does not need to have cause to fire the city manager.
"If they want to fire the city manager... they just fire him. So I believe the 24
months is not out of the question. It gives him the ability where if he comes
in at the next meeting and they decide to fire him, he needs to have time to
get out there, find a job. I think it's only fair because he has no guarantees,
no protections under federal labor laws like everybody else has," Worthington
City Council will meet Monday morning at 10 to continue negotiations.
Anyone can attend the meeting, held in council chambers.

Dr. Peter Berry, educator/Princi-
pal: "Yes, I look at the criminal jus-
tice system in two lights; it's their job
to dole out appropriate punishment
to fit the crime. If they're trying to set
an example by saying these crimes fit
the criteria for life imprisonment, es-
pecially for juveniles, then there has
to be an appeals process in place to
help overturn individual cases. I have
faith in our judicial system; I ap-
plaud it, but as an educator, I think
we can't discount the opportunity for
a child to reform. You can't throw
the baby out with the bath water.
We should be at the point of trying
to teach people, especially juveniles
about the circumstances of their ac-
tions if they commit a crime. Even
murderers have a chance at parole.
If the sentence is life without parole
for a crime that wasn't murder, then
I think that is a bit cruel. But there
are always unknown circumstances.
A judge is intelligent and he allows
prosecutors to build their case, based
on evidence. A major factor that a
judge should consider is that a juve-
nile doesn't have the legal capacity
to serve as an adult. They can't vote;
some can't even drive yet. If a case
has mitigating circumstances, like
a violent assault, the judge has to
weigh the safety of the public against
the content of the crime, regardless
of the age."

Pauline Larbalestrier, St. Pete:
"I think it's wrong because they're
too young to go to an adult prison. A
sentence for life is very cruel, espe-
cially without the chance at parole.
Putting them in prison with adults
will only turn them into better of-
fenders, not better people. There
are some really bad people in prison
who have done a lot worse, including
murder. If they are offenders, they
should go to juvenile jail, where they
might at least get a chance at re-
habilitation. Then when they're old
enough, they should be re-evaluated
and if they can't seem to be rehabili-
tated then they should go to adult
prison. But life without parole is just
wrong; what does that do for a child?
Certain factors should be looked at
like, do they need psychiatric help?
How was their childhood? Could
they have been a better kid with the
proper help? Even if the crimes are
really bad, if they're in prison for life,
there's no chance for help for them.
They need help, just don't put them
away and throw away the key. A lot
of these young criminals just run the
streets unsupervised, just looking for
trouble. If we can reach them young,
we might be able to keep them safe
down the road. I do feel bad for the
victims, but I just don't think that
prison for life is the answer for a

wr ir
Derrick Clark, Stetson law
student: "Absent murder, to be
sent to life in prison without parole
is extremely harsh especially for
a juvenile offender. However, I do
feel that there can be exceptions
and should be reviewed on a
case by case basis. The offender's
background, mental state, and
family dynamic should all be taken
into consideration in the evaluation.
As a hard and fast rule, I don't think
that life without parole should be
liberally implemented. The goal of
a sentence should be to rehabilitate
an individual. Some people who
commit crimes still have a lot to
offer and with the proper tools can
become contributing members of
society. Everyone has the potential
to grow and change. Our society has
free will, which means we have to be
a society that has compassion. The
remedy of sending a kid away for life
is just not judicially proficient. It's
a quick fix; we'll never know what
we could have gotten from that kid
if they had the opportunity to get

that there are many of us here who
fully support what he says and his
right to say it. Isn't this the Amer-

For the holiday season members of

31. Today we introduce the works
of Lynn Carhart, Bruce Fallender
and Helen Mullins, saving those of
Louise Garriques and Rita Gould
for next time.
Newcomer Lynn Carhart, retired
educator from New Jersey, offers
her eclectic water media pieces for
our enjoyment. Particularly invit-
ing is her "Lazy Daze," a soft land-
scape painted entirely in grays,

Bruce Fallender, award-winning
artist, shares four of his intrigu-
ing abstract works. His color-
ful watercolor, "Dance of the Sun
God" demands attention. Flaming
hot reds ease into golds, then fade
into shades of lovely cool blues, all
filtered through lacy patterns of
Helen Mullins' oil, "Florida Fif-
ties," shows us a '57 Chevy at an
open air Florida welcome center
that seems to have grown around a
majestic palm tree. Helen's vibrant
colors and careful detail, such as
the puddles from an afternoon
shower, inspire a warm feeling of
'Welcome Home.'

Teens, from front page
with as many as 25 to 30 teens
showing up at the door. According to
Rec Center Director John Lapham,
more are joining every week mostly
after hearing from their friends
about how much fun they have
there. Dues are a modest $2.00 for
Gulfport residents and $20.00 for
non- residents.
"We offer a safe, fun environment
for the kids to hang out in," Lapham
said. "We stress respect for others
and for the counselors, who take the
time to talk to the kids if they have
problems or questions."
The Rec Center facilities offer
the teens use of a large room with
a comfy couch and chairs, a TV,
a small kitchen and game tables.
The basketball courts are next
door, where the kids play hoops
and other ball games. One student,
Cesar Lopez, brought his guitar
with a small amp and the strains
of Iron Butterfly's In-A-Godda-Da-
Vida could be heard throughout the
Center. The fact that his parents
might not have been born yet when
the song first came out in 1968 had
absolutely no bearing on his ability
to play a pretty respectable version
Rec Center Counselor Jared
D'Alessio, a teacher as well, thinks
the Teen Night is a great alternative
to having the kids home alone or just
hanging out.
"We have so much for these kids to
do here; we have a Wii game hooked
up to a large flat screen TV, a pool
table, a football table, shuffleboard,

ping pong, you name it. The kids
can go to the gym next door (there's
direct access from the game room)
and shoot hoops, if they want."
The gym is also the place for
one of the kid's favorite activities;
dodge-ball. These guys are serious
competitors. Almost everyone, even
the girls, gets in the game and the
throws those kids send across the
court are definitely not for sissies.
They're hard hitting and physical;
just what teenagers need to expend
some of that nervous energy they're
so known for.
"This is definitely their favorite
game here," D'Alessio said laughing.
"They get to get out a lot of aggression

but the ball is so soft, nobody gets
The Teen Night program also
has a Lock-In three times a year,
where the teens go on a field trip,
like bowling or batting cages, then
come back to the Center and cook
dinner in the small kitchen. After
that, they set up camp on the game
room floor with sleeping bags and

basically have an all night pajama
party. The doors are locked; (no one
goes in or out) and the kids and their
counselors have the opportunity to
address issues, get advice or just try
to beat Rec Center counselor Justin
Shea at ping-pong. Shea is a music
student at St Pete College, but calls
his Rec Center job his calling.
"I'm actually happy to come to work
here," he said, smiling at a few of the
kids sitting on the sofa, playing Wii
games. "I feel so close to these kids
and this is such a great alternative
for them to have a place like this.
Instead of sitting around a mall or
the house, they come here and have
positive social interactions. And they
genuinely like each other."
While that may not sound unusual
to some, the fact is these kids'
ages range from 11 to 17, yet they
all relate to one another in a kind,
thoughtful way, atypical for most
teenagers. And that's a good thing.

Need A Lawyer? ..Think again

THE DOCUMIENT PROS, INC. can prepare documents confidentially, accurately and inexpensively.

The Document Pros, Inc.
recently moved its operation to
Seminole and is now offering
document services not previously
available in the area.
A need has arisen in the commu-
nity as individuals struggle with a
variety of legal issues. In these
difficult economic times, many
people simply cannot afford the
services of an attorney. Many are in
desperate need of assistance as they
seek to file for divorce, file
bankruptcy, complete a will or
apply for a U.S. Permanent
Resident Card, also known as a
green card.
Fortunately the government
provides that an individual may
complete and file required legal
documents through a process of
self-representation known as pro se
legal representation. Pro se filing
can be done legally without the
assistance of an attorney.
However, while the opportunity is
available, completion of the proper
documents can become tedious,
confusing, complicated and
unmanageable for many.

The Document Pros, Inc., a
non-attorney alternative for the
self-represented, provides document
preparation services to area residents.
With experience and training, they are
able to complete each client's required
documents confidentially, accurately
and affordably.
Because there are no lawyers on staff
at The Document Pros, Inc., the
company cannot offer legal advice of
any kind. Instead, they can provide
each client with the necessary
documents inexpensively, confiden-
tially and quickly. The Document
Pros, Inc. helps each client complete
the necessary documents, provides
proper instructions and guides each
client through the entire process.
Affordable document preparation
services include Chapter 7
Bankruptcy, divorce petition, divorce
response, incorporation, name change,
small claims filing, passport
application, citizenship application,
real estate transactions and notary
public services. Plus many more.
Whatever the document requirements
may be, The Document Pros, Inc.
can help complete the task in a timely

manner without putting a strain on the
client's budget.
"We're helping people who need
these services but can't afford to go to
an attorney," said Vince Catalano,
co-owner of The Document Pros, Inc.
"We've run into a number of people
who were forced to stay in failed
marriages because they couldn't afford
to pay an attorney thousands in
retainer fees," Catalano said. "We can
prepare the paperwork for $300."

Fee Schedule
*Florida Will Package..........$300
Divorce............................ $300
Bankruptcy...................... $175
Incorporation/LLC ............$175
Citizenship/Green Card ...$300
Name Change..................$100
Notary Public ..................$10
Eviction ........................... $150
Passport Application ........$100
*Posted fees are for document
preparation only and do not include
applicable government filing fees.

Catalano also said that much of his
business comes from older genera-
tions seeking affordable assistance in
preparing wills and other documents.
"These clients are very thankful for
our services," he said. "We can help
prepare a last will and testament,
complete a durable power of attorney
form, designate a health care
surrogate and assist with other
end-of-life documents."
The Document Pros, Inc. is
conveniently located in the Oxford
Square Shopping Plaza at 9430
Seminole Blvd., Seminole. Hours are
Monday through Thursday, 10 a.m. to
4 p.m., with appointments available
during normal business hours and on
Friday and Saturday.

dthoroscoe Guide

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Try
not to be petty. Judging people
takes too much time, and it makes
you miserable in the end. Be loving.
Let the small stuff go. You probably
won't get the respect you deserve
from everyone early in the week, but
if you stay upbeat, the difference will
be more than made up by the end of
the week.
21). The difference between trash
and treasure is often both subtle
and highly personal. You'll become
attuned to the objects, people and
other dynamics that hold meaning
for you. Recognizing what you value,
you'll be inclined to let go of what
you don't. Saturday is an excellent
time to shed the dead weight.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19).
You're on a quest, and it feels like
the galaxy is depending on you to
get this one right. A personal change
is part of the adventure. Breaking
out of a mold was a problem for Han
Solo, but thankfully, you haven't
been cryonically frozen. You can do
it, more easily if you have a friend
who can help you.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18).
You loaded up your proverbial plate
with plenty, but now that you've
had a few filling bites, you realize
that it's all a bit much. A serious
administrative session will help you
get things into perspective. Prioritize
your goals, and schedule the time
needed to achieve them. A few hours
of planning will rock your world.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20).
The golf course appears to be an
unbroken, solid sweep of green, but
in fact, each blade of grass twists and
bends in its own particular way. So
it is with the people in your life. Up
close, they are real characters, each
with his or her own funny quirks. It's
nothing to try to control. Just enjoy
the collective effect.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Even
if you find it easy to be emotionally
close to others, you may find

yourself backing off a bit now or
wondering whether you can depend
on someone. Choose self-sufficiency
whenever possible this week. It's
most important to know whether you
can depend on yourself. From there,
closeness with others is richer.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). If
you've been granted the wisdom to
recognize what you can't change,
then you already realize how futile it
is to try to get anyone to do what he
or she doesn't want to do. Move past
it. Make other arrangements. Be
happy that everyone has a different
style. Your joy will attract an even
better arrangement.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You'll
get one of those so-called "nice
problems to have," which probably
includes choosing between two
pleasant alternatives. Whether
it's sorting out a trip abroad,
maneuvering lifestyle upgrades or
picking a name for your new family
addition, life is full of win-wins. A
Leo will be instrumental in your
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Take
charge of your inner vocabulary.
When you talk to yourself about
yourself, use the right words. You
are not hasty, just spontaneous.
And when you feel hesitant, it's not
because you are timid, but because
you are cautious and gentle. A
conscious shift in perception will
make you feel like the winner you
really are.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You'll
be busy. Probably too busy. But
instead of trying to stave off the
aggravation, expense and fatigue of
living your lifestyle, fling yourself
into it full force with everything
you've got. Living passionately is
your forte, and you attract amazing
luck by doing so. Plus, by the end of
the week, you'll have a great story
to tell.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Basic
physics tells us that a body at
rest tends to remain at rest and a

I the Gabber 321-6965kl

body in motion tends to remain in
motion. You use the principle to
your advantage. It's easy for you
to exercise daily and keep several
projects in motion at once. You'll be
the busy person everyone wants to
engage in one way or another.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You'll
get some raised eyebrows this week
-- so unlike you. Good. Being silly
and weird is fortifying for your soul.
If you are really having fun, chances
are you're also behaving in a way
that is not socially acceptable to
some. Do as the French say -- epater
le bourgeois, loosely meaning "shock
the middle-class."
This Week's Birthdays: The year
is bustling with fun and bursting
with creative opportunities. A
project you've put your heart into
gets public praise in December.
February seals a deal. March has a
cozy, romantic feel until the end of
the month, when you'll be traveling
outside your comfort zone -- an
exhilarating ride! A financial risk
pays off in June. Family additions
happen in August. September heals
a relationship. Love signs are Leo
and Libra. Your lucky numbers are
1, 7, 35, 51 and 30.

Escape to the 1950s at Gulfport's

Citywide Garage Sale
By Cathy Salustri

I want a train case and Sunbeam Mixmaster and I
believe that the Gulfport citywide garage sale may
be just the place to get it. At least, that's what I
want to believe as I started trolling the streets last
I've wanted an old Mixmaster forever. Years ago I
got my Sunbeam, and even though it's made by the
same company that made the original, it isn't the
same. I was doing fine without a train case-let's
face it, this isn't the most practical piece of luggage
when you're trying to stuff a weekend's worth of crap in it so you don't have to
check a bag-until I saw a scene from 1934's The Thin Man. Myrna Loy had a
delicious little train case and her little dog, Asta, and I wanted one, too. I already
have the little dog, so the only thing left to get is the train case.
Since the train case fell out of vogue quite a few years ago, I can only hope that
I'll find one at the citywide sale. One
of our other reporters, Kate, vows to
keep her eyes open for a Mixmaster
and a train case at the beach garage

open for retro nautical or old Tiki
things so she can decorate her new
Sunset Beach apartment. But first I
want a train case.
"They're in everyone's attics," one
very nice lady who sells me an iron
for a dollar says when I ask if she
happens to have one. "They'll all end
up at garage sales when we die."
I think I've hit the jackpot when
I..S I see not one but two carport sales
G"i cin Town Shores-surely someone
in this 55-and-over condominium
extravaganza has a train case for
sale-but leave empty-handed. I
remind myself that "55 and older" is a far cry from "retirement home for people
who can no longer travel."
In my quest for the train case I make a quick decision not to get Kate a funky
brown mug in the shape of a white-bearded sailor. The man on the mug looks
like a cross between the Gorton's fisherman and the dead guy from I Know What
You Did Last Summer. I regret not buying this as soon as I realize there exists
in Gulfport a shortage of train cases, old Mixmasters, and d6cor that looks as
though it came straight from Trade Vic's.
I spend the morning driving around Gulfport and I realize three things: one, in a
Gulfport-sized city, a bicycle, scooter, or your own feet are probably a better way
to get around garage sales and two, I am very easily distracted.
The best deals of the day came not from garage sales but Sophie's Attic, the
church thrift store on 28th Street. There I find an old wok ($5), two cordial
glasses, circa nineteen sixty-something (50 cents for the pair) and-wait, what's
that under the suits? Could it be? It IS. It's a train case. It's beat all to hell,
has burns in the lining and is missing a mirror, but it's a train case. For two
Of course, there was no Mixmaster anywhere that I could see, and if anyone out
there has a train case they don't want, feel free to drop it by The Gabber, but the
sale, as usual, had some great finds. I have no idea how Kate did, but I failed her
miserably. I did get her a little bottle with sand and a plastic sword in it, but my
mind keeps going back to that mug at Town Shores.

Suncoast AIDS
Theatre Project
The Suncoast AIDS Theatre Project
is proud to present "Love! Valour!
Compassion!", a staged reading
in honor of World AIDS Day on
Tuesday, December 1 at 7 p.m. at
The Studio @ 620, 620 First Avenue
S. in St. Petersburg. Doors open at
6:30, curtain time is 7 p.m. Admission
is "Pay What You Can" with all
proceeds benefiting Metro Charities
and Suncoast AIDS Theatre Project,
organizations that provide services
to people with AIDS.
Winner of the 1995 Tony Award
for Best Play, Terrance McNally's
"Love! Valour! Compassion!" is a
big, generous, haunted comedy that
is both very funny and filled with
intimations of time's passage, of
loss and death. Set in and around
a beautiful Dutchess County
farmhouse, eight gay men hash out
their passions, resentments and
fears over the course of three summer
weekends. In this beautifully written
work, McNally presents humbling
evidence of what human love is and
can be.
"Love! Valour! Compassion!" will
feature professional performers
from the community including Jorge
Acosta and Eric Davis, all of whom
are donating their time and talents
for the event. This one night only
staged reading is not to be missed.
The mission of The Suncoast AIDS
Theatre Project is to raise awareness,
provide assistance, and perpetuate a
life of dignity for those affected and
infected by HIV and AIDS.

Studio @ 620 at 727-895-6620. To

"I do appreciate being
on council and working
with the people. I appreciate all the conferences and all the knowledge that
I've gained; I've gained a tremendous amount of knowledge on environmental
issues and other issues that affect Gulfport directly. I appreciate the citizens
of Gulfport in that they supported me in letting me do all these things,"
Worthington said.
Who would he like to see take his place? He wouldn't name a specific person,
but said he wanted to see someone run who would put residents first.
"I'd like to see a person who can come in without their own agenda or without
a politically backed agenda," Worthington said. He elaborated by explaining
he's been disturbed by the recent trend of candidates to accept money from the
Republican and Democratic parties for local nonpartisan elections.
"These parties give not only funds but they're doing in-kind type work that
you can't put a dollar on, like telephone solicitation and mail-outs. They're
talking the hometown away from it. I think that's wrong," Worthington said.
He says that Gulfport should be about Gulfport and not partisan issues. A
councilmember should listen to the people, not lobbyists, he added.
"I think the thing I'm probably the most proud of is that I've been my own
person. I've listened to the people. I've tried to help everybody in Gulfport in
any way I could whether they lived in my ward or not," Worthington said.

Hearing to Discuss
City Lawsuits
ST. PETE BEACH More than two
weeks after a mediator declared
an impasse in the mediation talks
between the City Commission, a
citizens' group and the the two
residents who filed suit against
them in 2005, the public will finally
be able to have their say.
Thursday morning (November 19)
the commission will hold a public
hearing to discuss proposedproposed
changes to the city's comprehensive
plan that would serve as a settlement
among the three parties.
If the commission subsequently
authorizes the mayor to enter into
a settlement agreement with the
parties the amendments would then
go to the Planning Board.
But there has yet to be an agreement
between the parties as to what is in
the settlement.
"The amendment going to the
Planning Board includes the items
included in the last settlement
proposals," said City Manager Mike
Bonfield in an email. "If there is no
settlement agreement in place, the
City Commission will decide at their
11/30 if that amendment will still
move forward. The majority of the
issues are clarifications or inclusions
of items currently only covered in
our Land Development Code."
Bonfield added that the proposed
amendments to the plan would not
contain any major alterations.
"We believe the only two significant
changes to what was adopted by the

voters is the formation of a 'Bridge
to the Future Committee" 'to look
at community aesthetics and review
larger scale development," he said.
"The other amendment being
considered is the annual update to
our Capital Improvements Element.
This is a State requirement for all
local governments. It only includes
the portion of the City Capital
Improvement Program budget that
meets the State definition."
On Monday the City Commission
met to discuss whether or not to
accept the latest counter-proposal,
which citizen group Save Our
Little Village (a named party in

the lawsuit) and the plaintiffs have
reportedly accepted.
The city had rejected the previous
proposed agreement, Ken Weiss,
attorney for the plaintiffs, said,
and then submitted its own counter
"We accepted the counter proposal
submitted by the city with very
minor changes and SOLV
signed it as well," he said.
At a meeting Monday, the city
rejected this.
Thursday's hearing takes place at
9am, and will include a session for
public testimony.

City of Gulfport to Provide Residents with
Easy-to-Use Program that can help Save
Money on Prescription Drug Purchases
In current economic climate, where people are watching
their spending, prescription discount card can offer
average savings of 20 percent off retail price

The City of Gulfport will soon introduce a program that will provide its
residents with a new tool that can provide some relief from the high cost of
prescription drugs. The city is making free prescription drug discount cards
available to city residents through a program sponsored by the National
League of Cities (NLC). The discount cards offer average savings of 20 percent
off the retail price of commonly prescribed drugs.
Available by November 23rd, the discount cards may be used by all residents
of The City of Gulfport and has no restrictions based on the resident's age,
income level, or existing health coverage. The NLC card can be used when
purchasing prescription drugs at approximately fifty one pharmacies around
the city, as well as at more than 59,000 participating retail pharmacies across
the country.
In the current economic climate, where many people are watching what they
spend, the NLC prescription discount card will offer significant savings on the
purchase of prescription medications for Gulfport residents. Whether or not an
individual has prescription coverage, this program can make it easier for our
residents to afford the drugs they need to deal with a short-term illness or stay
healthy by managing a chronic condition.
NLC and the City of Gulfport are able to make these money-saving cards
available to city residents at no cost to the individual. A future announcement
will provide information on how and when residents may obtain the cards.
Not only does the NLC prescription discount card help residents save money
on their medications, it is easy to use. Gulfport residents only have to show
their card when purchasing medication at one of the many participating
pharmacies. There is no enrollment form required to get a card, no membership
fee of any kind and city residents and their family members can use the card
any time their prescriptions are not covered by insurance."
The discount card program is administered by CVS Caremark.

trating the wonders of the Ameri-
can justice system, it will be used by
these fanatics to show the evil of the
western world and the heroism of the
jihadists. This will be a world-wide
show and a propaganda bonanza for
Side effects? Some survivors of the
victims on 9/11 might be further
traumatized and New York could be
again the center of terrorist threats.
I guess that's just a minor irritant.
Worse, this is a declaration that
these acts of terrorism are now being
considered mere criminal actions,
the moral and political equivalent
of street murders. Didn't that ap-
proach, under the Clinton adminis-
tration, keep them from taking out
Bin Laden and lead to 9/11?
Finally, it is difficult to escape the
conclusion that this is being used as
much a trial of the Bush administra-
tion and its "war on terrorism" and
its aggressive interrogation of cap-
tured enemy combatants, as it is a
trial of the terrorists themselves.
It is a good idea to remind ourselves
that the attacks on our Lebanese
barracks in the 1980s, the attack on
the destroyer The Cole, bombing of
embassies in Kenya and The Sudan,
and the first bombing of the World
Trade Center, to name a few of the
"incidents", all came before The Bush
administration came to power and
before 9/11.

Gulfport Centennial Countdown Continues!

SulpCoutds Centen iaal
100 Week Countdown to 100 Years!

The iconic "quonset hut" configuration leaves no doubt as to what building
this is. But when did it last look like this? 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 47 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.
The commercial block at 2832 Beach
Boulevard has been the site of many,
many businesses over the years. Around
1930, a pharmacist named "Doc" Hern-
don hired the Anthonys (Frank is shown
in last week's picture) to watch the store
while he went away for a summer vaca-
tion. Two of Frank's granddaughters are
well-known Gulfport residents: Linda
Skillen and Rose Sopak.

veterinary needs. The rescue has a
trainer available for you to use. In
addition, they act as a support system
that you can call anytime day or

Directly behind the Gabber on Newton Ave. is an ecosystem with a variety of flora
and fauna. Through the years we have fed the local squirrels, starting with one that was
seriously injured, probably by a local Cooper Hawk that nests in the tall pine outside our
window. We've fed generation after generation with peanuts, and periodically we would
discover old bones in our yard. While I was shooting some blossoms in the back yard
I happened to snap a photo of a squirrel chewing on a bone. Apparently peanut fed
squirrels lack calcium and potassium so they dig up bones to supplement their dietary

Excerpts heard at the November 17, 2009

Gulfport City Council Meeting

Public Comment & Council Quotes

"I don't think there's any dispute that it's a won-
derful program." Councilwoman Michele King,
about the League of Cities prescription drug program,
available to residents at the League of Cities web
site. Residents who cannot go online can get a card
from Gulfport City Hall, the Gulfport Multipurpose
Senior Center, the recreation center, the Gulfport
Casino, and the library to get a prescription card.

"I think this whole thing is a sellout to the (Flor-
ida) EPA...(Best Management Practices) depend
on people doing the right thing and it's not
happening. All the other industries that should
be doing the right thing are not doing them
under the Best Management Practices rules, and
they're just letting them get away with it. For us,
it's going to take, what $6,000 and it's just the
beginning."- Vice-mayor Bob Worthington, about
the Tampa Bay Nitrogen Management Consortium.
His comments were met with applause.

"The whole bay has changed so much in the past
50 or 60 years that it's hardly the same place."
-Councilwoman Judy Ryerson

"Shame on council for 'Black Friday' October
23 for treating a fine, honorable man like dog-
meat,"- Lee Stapella, about the negotiations be-
tween council and the interim city manager.

"I want to absolutely thank you for being here.
Your position is respected. Please refrain from
the applause; it deafens as part of our system."-
Mayor Mike Yakes, when Al Davis' comments about
Clam Bayou were met with applause. Apparently
applause and loud noises go through the city's sound
system directly into the city clerk's earpiece in a most
unpleasant manner.

"I don't want to hear an answer like 'Well, I
wouldn't buy property in a commercial area'."
-Jane Ogilvie, protesting the city allowing a smoker
restaurant on 49th Street

"I'd love to see solar panels on the Casino light-
ing it up."-Councilmember Sam Henderson, saying
he would not vote to light the Casino year-round.

"I think we need to find a way to light the Casi-
no. I think the businesses downtown need it. It's
not a $6500 carbon footprint, it's a $1500 carbon
footprint." -Councilwoman Michele King, who sug-
gested the city find an energy-efficient way to light
the Casino

"Is there documentation anywhere from
one of these agencies that says this smoke is
hazardous?"-Councilwoman Michele King, about
the alleged hazardous smoke coming from the smoker
restaurant on 49th Street. Interim City Manager Jim
O'Reilly told her no.

"It's kind of frustrating to sit on the Planning
and Zoning Committee and know you're sit-
ting in on a dress rehearsal. If you are the body
who is going to make the decision, let's cut out
that step. We don't need that dress rehearsal;
we don't need to put those people through this
twice. Just because it's an appointed board
doesn't mean it has to be totally powerless." -Bob

"A few weeks ago Councilwoman Michele King
said that Gulfport Montessori needed money to
buy supplies. Tonight the school board sends
seven suits here."-Margarete Tober

"Miss Ryerson, I graduated in 70 and it was
flooding then, too." -Margarete Tober, about the
school board's plan to build a ball field in a swamp

"My concern is that if it meets the definition of a
wetland-and it does-there is some responsibil-
ity."-Al Davis, about the school board's plan to build
a ball field in a swamp

"It's not good enough to take down old growth
trees... and then replace them."-Jennifer Salmon,
about the school board's plan

"I'm sorry to invite the suits back, but I think
that it's important that you have all the
information."-Jennifer Salmon, who asked the city
to postpone its vote on the school board's proposed

S By Cathy alustriWa

Apparently love has a price.
I'm not sure what it is, but ac-
ording to Gulfport city coun-
cil love isn't worth $216,000.
Despite a months-long love-a-
thon for Interim City Manager Jim
O'Reilly, city council chose Tuesday
night not to appoint him as Gulf-
port's full time city manager. When
I interviewed council a while back
about why they were willing to fore-
go a job search, I got the impression
they believed that O'Reilly not only
walked on water, he turned it into
wine at the end of his stroll. They
even changed the charter so that
he could keep his home mid-county
while he worked as city manager.
Please note that they did this before
they even asked O'Reilly if he would
move, so eager were they to have him
and only him as a city manager.
So why the no-go on actually mak-
ing him a city manager?
O'Reilly wants two years pay if
council fires him, and that works out
to $216,000. Council can't guarantee
they won't fire him, so they won't ac-
cept that in the contract.
Why does O'Reilly want so much
Seems that O'Reilly wants to pro-
tect his family and his career. Go
ahead, call him crazy. I mean, come
on, just because council can show up
one night and fire him because they
don't like his tie (and they are kind
of boring, so I can see where that
would happen), how dare he ask for
a severance package of this magni-
To be fair, I do kind of choke on how
much money he wants. $216,000 is
a lot of the city's money. I mean, it's
not like Gulfport's spent that much
on other things, like the trolley, or
dealing with charter issues, the Pas-
adena Properties lawsuit, or Scout
Hall. And it's not like the city man-
ager has to stick his neck out time
and time again to protect the city
and its council and, oh, yes, its citi-
zens. The issue at Tuesday night's
meeting was that no city manager

gets that kind of severance pack-
No city manager gets to live outside
the city, either, but council allowed
O'Reilly isn't asking for more than
the city budgeted for his position; he
isn't even asking for monies equal to
what other city managers at compa-
rable cities earn. Since he could be
fired at any council meeting for any
reason (as long as a majority agrees
that they want to fire him), he wants
the money to protect his family. He
says that two years pay would be
enough to make sure his daughter
would be able to go to college.
Well, at least, that's what he says.
It smacks of some sort of bargaining
chip, some sort of ammunition. Af-
ter all, I've met his daughter; she's
reasonably bright. I'm sure she'll
get some sort of scholarship. I mean,
it's not like the state is in any sort
of economic trouble; he can certain-
ly count on Bright Futures for her.
Also, why on earth would O'Reilly
believe that the city would fire him?
I mean, they certainly treated the
last city manager with respect.
Actually, now that I mention it,
city councils can be capricious. And
as much as the five on the dais now
think that Christ himself couldn't
run the city better, there's no guar-
antee that future councils will have
the same level of adoration for this
good ol' boy.
I do recall, too, that city managers
have a way of getting stuck making
the hard choices to help their coun-
cil, which doesn't exactly put them
up there with the cheerleaders and
football stars when it comes to popu-
larity. I read somewhere that the av-
erage length of time a city manager
serves a city is about a year and a
O'Reilly's no dummy; everybody
loves him now because they're still
honeymooning. Technically, it's not
even a honeymoon, it's more of a
"living in sin" situation since they
haven't even formalized the ar-

rangement. Once they sign the pa-
pers things will change in city hall
and O'Reilly won't have the protec-
tion of a Leisure Services Director-
ship waiting in the wings.
I have to wonder, too, why the city's
so worried about what's going to hap-
pen when they fire O'Reilly. Seems
like that severance package would
be a mighty powerful incentive
for them to make sure they've got
the right guy. I'm not sure, either,
why they can't work out some sort
of tiered severance package where
O'Reilly gets the two years if they
fire him in the first two years, but
less in each subsequent year. This,
of course, works on the assumption
that any city manager who can hand
in a balanced budget could, over the
course of the next few years, find a
way to save a little money here and
there to help defray the cost of his
daughter's college tuition.
Or maybe if they don't have the con-
fidence that they're not going to fire
him they should consider launch-
ing a job search for a city manager.
Someone who doesn't walk on water
and can't raise the dead or balance a
budget but won't ask for such a large
severance package.

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

"4 guess you could say my motto
is'been there, done that'," says
IKeith 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 afford because of a job loss or some assess your situation and see how

You & THE


Your Last Will
and Testament
By Robert J. Myers, Esquire
Many otherwise successful and
diligent people overlook what could
be one of the largest tax-saving de-
vices available to them during their
entire lifetimes: a will. Wills are the
primary document for transferring
wealth upon a person's death. It is
the document in which you specify
how, to whom and when you wish to
have all of your earthly belongings
distributed. Although this is a vital
document, many people procrasti-
nate or defer having one drafted.
Consequently, many people die
without the benefit of their specific
instructions being carried out.
If you die without a will, you die
"intestate" or without a last will and
testament. If this occurs, your estate

will be distributed according to the
probate laws of the State of Florida
if you reside in Florida. More than
likely, this distribution will not be
according to your wishes. This could
also cause problems in your imme-
diate family due to disputes over
who was meant to receive what,
what proceeds go to your spouse as
well as any intended charitable be-
In drafting a will, several factors
must be taken into consideration.
These include, but are not limited
* Specific instructions designed to
distribute your estate to your in-
tended beneficiaries.
* Provisions for a guardian(s) to
serve in your capacity if you have
minor children.
. A nomination for a personal rep-
resentative or executor to carry out
your wishes in conjunction with the
* Instructions regarding the subse-
quent transfer of wealth on a tax-
free or deferred basis through the
Unlimited Marital Deduction or
Unified Credit as well as other tax
savings strategies.

A competent attorney should be
employed for the drafting of a will.
While there exist many do-it-your-
self products on the market which
do provide presumably valid docu-
ments, there is no substitute for
professional advice and sound legal
Once your will is finalized, it may
be changed as you deem necessary
to reflect your ever changing situ-
ation. Such changes may be based
upon a birth or death in the fam-
ily, a divorce, change of residence
or change of intended beneficiaries.
Such changes or codicils must be
executed with the same formalities
as a will, but are usually not as in-
volved as the drafting of the original
document. Even without major life
changes, wills should be reviewed
every two to three years to ensure
that your intentions will, in fact, be
carried out upon your death.

Law Offices which is located at 1135

Drowsy Driving Danger
The American Association of Safety
Councils and the Suncoast Safety
Council are issuing a warning about
the dangers of driving while drowsy.
A U.S. Dept. of Transportation poll
says that 37% of the driving popula-
tion says they have nodded off for at
least a moment or fallen asleep while
driving at some time in their life. Ac-
cording to the National Sleep Foun-
dation, driving while drowsy may be
just as deadly as driving drunk.
If you are about to fall asleep you
will experience some or all of the fol-
lowing: You yawn a lot or need to rub
your eyes. You have trouble keeping
your eyes open and focused. You nod
and can't keep your head up. You
daydream or have wandering, dis-
connected thoughts. You find your-
self tailgating or driving at irregular
speeds. You miss road signs, drive
past your turn or can't focus on your
route. You feel irritable, restless or
impatient. You drift off the road and
hit the rumble strips or cross into an-
other lane.
Pay attention to these symptoms
and make sure you pull off the road.

Gulfport Beach October Water Quality Report

By Cathy Salustri
Each week the City of Gulfport tests the water quality
in the waters off Gulfport Beach. Gulfport has contracted
with the City of St. Petersburg for the tests.
Every month The Gabber publishes the results of those
tests. If, at any time, the tests show that the water qual-
ity poses a health risk, the City of Gulfport will issue a
Health Advisory. Gulfport typically receives test results
within a week of taking the sample.
Currently, the City tests for two things: enterococcus and
fecal coliform. Scientists consider enterococcus a common
bacteria found in animal and human intestines, and, re-
sultingly, in human and animal excrement. Federal stan-
dards used to require agencies to measure water quality
by the amount of fecal coliform along public beach waters
but recently have replaced fecal coliform with enterococ-
cus as the standard. Fecal coliform also comes from the Sample Enterococcus Fecal Coliform
waste of warm-blooded animals, including humans. Date
The City of Gulfport currently tests for both types of bac- October 6 2 7
teria. Test results will help classify Gulfport Harbor as

Gulfport Community Players

Beau Jest: So Impressed
By Cathy Salustri

The Gulfport Community Players set the stage for a hit with their first
play of the season, Beau Jest. Most everything about this show delights;
it's lighthearted comedy and more serious themes make for a great blend of
laughter and introspection.
Beau Jest tells the story of Sara Goldman (played by Rebekah Sweet), a
Jewish girl with a Gentile boyfriend who her parents believe she no longer
sees. To alleviate endless blind dates, courtesy of her mother (played by Rikki
Lewis), Sara Goldman hires Schroeder to play her Jewish boyfriend for one
night. One night, of course, turns into several and things get more complicated
when Sara and Bob-who isn't Jewish, either-fall in love.
The comedy, set entirely in Sara's apartment, plays out over the course of
several months. While the first few moments on stage seemed a bit awkward
Saturday night, Russell and Sweet quickly establish a rapport and get the
audience laughing. Walter Raine and Rikki Lewis play Sara's very Jewish
parents, and this foursome spends the most time onstage and set a lively pace
for two hours.
Sweet is, well, sweet onstage. Even though her character builds a house of
cards throughout the show she still gets the sympathy of the audience. Sara
Goldman lies to her parents and cheats on her boyfriend, yet Sweet manages
to evoke sympathy and laughter from the audience.
Raine and Lewis both do a great job; Lewis is completely believable as a
nagging Jewish mother and Raine is well cast as the slightly standoffish and
somewhat cranky father. It's no sacrifice to watch either of them onstage.
While the entire cast of Beau Jest does a spectacular job with this comedy, it's
Jim Russell who shines throughout this light-hearted comedy. Russell plays
Bob Schroeder, the actor hired to portray Sara Goldman's Jewish boyfriend,
and he leads the show with his wonderful timing and facial expressions.
Russell is completely empathetic and endearing as well as a lot of fun to watch.
His sense of comedy lends itself well to this show and director Vic Carr made
an excellent decision in casting him. Of all the things Russell's done for the
Players, he shines the brightest in his latest role.
Kelly Smith plays Sara's sister, Rachel, who is also a therapist. The lovely
Smith does a fine job in her relatively small role and she and Sweet have a nice
onstage energy and they easily take on the roles of two sisters who love each
other but occasionally find themselves at odds with one another.
Only Ben Sandrovitz, who plays Sara's initial love interest (the strangely
named Chris Kringle,) could have used more attention from director Vic Carr.
Kringle's onstage role is small, but Sandrovitz seems stiff and disconnected
onstage. Saturday night he seemed to swallow his lines, which had the
audience straining to hear at some points.
All in all, though, Vic Carr, his cast, and the entire production team present a
show that is an absolute delight to watch. The sets, lights, and sound all come
together nicely, and although the actors occasionally forgot or repeated a line,
the pace of the show stayed lively.
After what this critic would call lackluster season last year, the Players
introduce this year's season with a strong show that keeps audiences laughing
and thinking long after this rich cast takes its final bow. Beau Jest is well
worthy of your attendance; kudos to producer Eileen Navarro and the whole
theatre company for an excellent night's entertainment.
Unfortunately, Beau Jest closed last Sunday, but it's not too early to make
your reservations for Gulfport: The Musical, slated to open in January. Get
your tickets by calling 322-0316.

Thanksgiving Alternatives
A truly worthwhile experience usually involves break-
ing routine. While holiday traditions help keep families
together, some years require that you do something a little
different. Every Thanksgiving numerous organizations of-
fer alternatives to the standard, stay-at-home version of
the holiday. So if you're strapped for cash, not in the mood
to cook, or simply want to lend a hand in this particu-
larly tough year, you have numerous choices for an offbeat
Thanksgiving 2009. Here are some of the many options,
some of which occur before the holiday, so you can have
your enormous feast and eat it, too:

Rosa Jackson Thanksgiving Day Dinner
Ms. Jackson started this annual tradition in 1973. The
Veterans Administration employee spent $1,000 of her
own money to provide Thanksgiving to those who other-
wise wouldn't have had one. Fifty people showed up to her
house, and the next year the event was moved to Campbell
Park Recreation Center at 601 14th St. S. in St. Peters-
burg, where it's been ever since. Individuals can partake
as diners or as volunteers. Event takes place Thanksgiving
Day from one to three pm. For more information, call (727)
327-7496 or (727) 893-7733.

Thanksgiving Day Buffet
Those in need can also take part in a Thanksgiving feast a
little bit further to the north. The People That Love Mis-
sion and Church at 817 Fifth Ave. N. will be hosting its
18th annual buffet from 3:30 to 5 pm. The menu includes
home-cooked turkey and all the traditional sides. The event
is free and open to the public. The mission will also be dis-
tributing frozen turkeys to those in need on the preceding
Monday. For more information, visit www.peoplethatlove.

American Legion Post 252
Thanksgiving Dinner
This one's only open to veterans currently under care at
Bay Pines VA Medical Center, but you can be there in
spirit. The post is accepting donations to help it put on this
huge dinner, which typically serves 150 to 200 veterans


who cannot be with their families this year. To contribute,
call 398-2463.

Pre-Thanksgiving Bash
So the extravaganza that happens in Gulfport every
Thanksgiving the one that takes place on the Tuesday
before Thanksgiving at the senior center is sold out. But
that doesn't mean Gulfportians can't still have a rockin'
Thanksgiving. The following evening Thanksgiving Eve,
that is revelers can party down at the Gulfport Casino
with Swing Time, which will be grooving to the tunes of
Steve Arvey. Don't know how to swing? The group will
provide shag and swing lessons from 6 to 7 and 7 to 8 pm,
respectively, the night of the event. The actual event starts
at 8. Admission is $10. Call (813) 840-3715 for more info.

Thanksgiving Arabian Horse Show
This is probably the most offbeat event in this list, but
some years you need to bring in the big guns: horses. In
most circumstances, horses signify a good time. Yes, hors-
ies. This show may be all the way in Tampa, but it's free.
And there are pretty horses. It starts Thanksgiving Day at
8 am at the Bob Thomas Equestrian Center at the Florida
State Fairgrounds (Interstate 4 at US 301 N.). Call 446-
6168 for more details.

Total Body Turkey Workout
At the first Thanksgiving, nobody counted calories. Nobody
spent Black Friday doing lunges while painfully hungover.
Times, as turkey-accommodating deep-fryers may suggest,
have changed. This year marks the second annual ('h.'il vy
Thanksgiving Bootcamp Extravaganza, which takes place
at 5:30 pm Wednesday, November 25 at 1120 North Shore
Dr. NE in St. Pete. Participants are encouraged to burn as
many calories as possible ahead of the Big Meal, but must
also donate to St. Pete nonprofit ASAP Homeless Services.
For more details call 320-7582 or email physiquesstpete@

Holy Name Thanksgiving Celebration
The Sunday before Thanksgiving, the St.
Vincent de Paul Society will provide
dinner for Gulfportians at Holy Name 0
Church at 5800 15th Ave, S. Tick-
ets are $7.50 ($3.50 for kids under
12) and includes a full-on meal,
beer and wine, entertainment
and the chance to win all
sorts of nifty prizes,
including a free
weekend stay at

Financial Aid Myths
Don't believe these college financial
aid myths.
Myth #1: You can't afford college.
The truth is most college students
require some form of financial aid.
Don't ignore college because of its
"sticker price".
Myth #2: You have to be very poor,
very smart or very talented to qualify
for financial aid. Financial aid comes
in many forms such as the federal
government, the college or univer-
sity itself, a parent's employer and
others. When you take the time to
explore all the possibilities, you will
be surprised as to what services you
may receive.
Myth #3: You can get more schol-
arships by paying someone to search
for you. Scholarship scams are ev-
erywhere. Beware of any group or
individual that guarantees a schol-
arship if you pay a fee. Check out
www.fastweb.com or www.finaid.org
for more information.
Myth #4: My child will pay for col-
lege, so my salary doesn't matter.
Most need-based financial aid is
based on parents' income and assets.
The FAFSA form, available online
at www.fasa.ed.gov asks for infor-
mation similar to what you ned for
your income taxes. After submitting
FAFSA, you'll receive a report that
shows how much the government ex-
pects you to pay.
Myth #5: You can wait until you get
accepted to a college before worrying
about financial aid. Most financial
aid is doled out on a first-come, first-
served basis. No one should wait to
get started. Looking for financial aid
probably isn't a teen's idea of a good
time, but it is better than graduating
from college in debt.

Recession Buster

Become a Mentor
Gulf Coast Community Care needs
volunteers age 30 and older for its
Adults Mentoring Children program.
Volunteers are matched with children
who need a positive adult role model.

Many of the children are in foster
care or live with a single parent who
is going to school and working. There
is a need for volunteers for children
of all ages.
Volunteers give the gift of time
to one child and are provided social
events and support by agency staff.
No experience is necessary. There
are no costs. Volunteers spend a few
hours a week in simple activities such
as reading, fishing, baking, teaching
a craft or visiting a park with a
child. We have children throughout
Pinellas waiting for mentors!

G.M. B.
- St. Michael, the Archangel, Defend Us In
Battle; Be Our Defense Against the Wicked-
ness and Snares of the Devil. May God Re-
buke Him We Humbly Pray; and Do You Oh
Prince of the Heavenly Host, By the Power
of God, Thrust Into Hell Satan and the Other
Evil Spirits Who Prowl About the World For the
Ruin of Souls. Amen. St. Michael, I Resort
to Your Protection and in My Faith, Offer This
Light Which Shall Burn Every Tuesday. Com-
fort Me in My Difficulties and While Lodging in
the House of Our Savior Intercede for Me and
My Family That We Will Be Able to Hold God
Close to Our Hearts and Be Provided for in All
of Our Necessities. I Beseech You, to Have
Infinite Pity in Regard to Favors I ask of You
(Name Them) So That I May Be Able To Over-
come All Difficulties as You Did the Dragons
at Your Feet. Our Father (Say 3 Times). Hail
Mary (Say 3 Times). Glory Be (Say 3 Times).
This Prayer is to be Said 9 Tuesdays, in Suc-
cession and Each Tuesday a Candle Shal
Be Lighted and a Copy of This Prayer Lft in

and Support the Devotion to St. Michael. This
Miraculous Saint Grants Everything, No Mat-
ter How Difficult, Before the Termination of 9
Tuesday. G.F.

PRAYER TO ST. JUDE This novena has
never been known to fail. This novena must be
said for 9 consecutive days. Publication must
be promised. Oh Holy St. Jude, Apostle and
Martyr, great in virtue and rich in miracles,
near kinsman of Jesus Christ, faithful inter-
cessor of all who invoke your special patron-
age in time of need, to you I have recourse
from the depth of my heart and humbly beg
to whom God has given great power to come
to my assistance. Help me in my present
urgent petition. In return, I promise to make
your name known and call you to be invoked.
St. Jude, pray for us all who invoke your aid.
Amen. Say 3 Our Fathers, 3 Hail Marys & 3
Gloria's. R.S.

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