Senior ROTC Jade Baker is ready
for a Bright Future

Waiting on
Residential Heights
ST. PETE BEACH- The city
commission tabled the first reading
of an ordinance that would allow
for additional height for existing
residential structures. This move
would allow the building of a
garage under the existing house.
The city attorney wanted to have a
shade meeting (not open to public)
about litigation on raising a house
and the commission wanted to get
that information before they made
a decision on the ordinance. The
shade meeting on the Woods case
is scheduled for May 11.

Quasi-Judicial
Proceedings
ST. PETE BEACH- Quasi-judicial
hearings are a time when the
commission generally a legislative
body acts in a court-like manner
such as when they make decisions
on zoning and land use. The
city attorney reviewed and
recommended a resolution with
guidelines to better manage the
hearing process such as who can
talk, when they can talk and how
long they can talk.
Commissioner Jim Parent said
he liked the idea of the resolution
but wanted more details on who
would be a substantially affected
party to speak. He also thought
people should take an oath to
speak. "When you go through life
there's some things you get sworn
in to do..." Parent said.
Commissioner Shavlan said he
would be concerned if someone was
missed in the swearing in process
and the possibility of problems if
a decision was appealed because
they weren't sworn in.
the commission decided to have
the attorney makes changes to the
resolution and they will revisit it
at an upcoming meeting.

Last Weekend
to See "Gus"
After a great opening week last
week to the Gulfport Community
Players' comedy, "Cookin' with Gus",
the play will have its final weekend
performances this weekend. Yes, Gus
will turn off the grille after Sunday's
show, but tickets are still available
until then. Get them by calling the
Players at 727-322-0316 or buy them
at the door just before the show.
Tickets are still just $15 each.


The play centers around the creation
of a TV cooking show with Gus as its
star. The problem is that Gus is a
nervous wreck whenever a camera
or a voice recorder is turned on! She
freezes up completely. In order to
overcome this obstacle, her husband
tries some post-hypnotic suggestions
on her and even one of her friends. To
put it short, these suggestions work-
maybe a little too well!
Carol Valdes, Norm Nash, Brick,
and Eric Dawson are the perfect cast
in this very funny spoof on TV food
shows. If you haven't seen this play


yet, hurry on down to the Hickman
Theater and catch it!

Outdoor Seating?
ST. PETE BEACH- The city
commission approved a modification
that allows the enclosure of an
outdoor seating area at Skidder's
Restaurant. In 2007 the restaurant
at 5799 Gulf Boulevard was given
approval for the outdoor seating area
that parallels 58th Avenue. Several
months ago roll down hurricane
shutters were installed apparently
without getting a building permit.
The community development
department wrote, "These shutters,
when deployed, have the effect of
enclosing the entire seating area
within a hard surface wall. In
addition the property owner has
installed air conditioning units to
serve the seating area such that the
climate can be controlled in the same
manner as the 'indoor' seating area
of the restaurant."
We wanted to make the outdoor
area into something comfortable,
said the owner Mr. Skiadiotis. He
said they saw the roll downs in
Europe and thought it would make it
more comfortable for patrons during
inclement weather.
Pat Anderson said as a customer
she was glad the roll down shutters
were out there with the cold weather
this winter.
The planning department found
that there were no professional
planning issues with the changes
made. The parking and seating were
not changed.

Swimming Safety
Classes
ST. PETE BEACH- The Gulf
Beaches Kiwanis will conduct a
three-week child swimming safety
and drowning prevention program
at the Community Center Pool in
May. The city commission okayed
the city manager waiving fees
for the use of the pool to provide
the "Every Child a Swimmer"
program to children ages 5 to 11.
About one-third of the pool will be
used for the safety lessons from 5
until 6:30 p.m.
It's a program designed for water
safety and survival not swimming.
Child drowning statistics have
gone down where this program
has been held, said Police Chief
David Romine.

Cindy Fisher, Gulfport: "Why
do they need another ATM; they're
already in most of the local bars.
They don't need another one on the
strip; I just don't think that we need
it. But it does make sense in another
way because most tourists don't carry
cash. If it was helpful for the vendors
of the Art Walk, then I think it would
be a positive for the city; it would
encourage the tourists to spend their
money."


John Gerlach, St. Pete: "Why not?
There's no downside to it, if it's done
well and tucked away discreetly
enough so that people can still see
it to use it. If the big banks can't
be bothered, it seems to me to be
the perfect time to get a smaller,
independent bank to put an ATM
out and become a presence in the
city. If I found myself without cash,
I would use one. I visit here a lot so
it would be a convenience for me as
well."


Barbara Chapman, St. Pete: "I live
just ten minutes from here and come
to Gulfport often. I would think an
ATM would be advantageous for the
vendors. Why wouldn't they do it; it
makes perfect sense. Tourists and
visitors wouldn't have to fight traffic
going to a bank; it would increase the
amount of money they might spend
with the local vendors. The Courtyard
might be a good spot and I don't think
it would be unattractive if they put
some nice plantings around it."


Redes /e Go Th m I / I -


Van Ivey, Gulfport: "Why don't they
already have one? There needs to be
a G-rated public access ATM; maybe
put it in front of the Casino, by the
bus stop. It's hard to see how an ATM
would lose money; they charge per
transaction. But more than that, you
don't have to go to a teller at a bank;
it's readily accessible. A major point
of importance is that with today's
economy, a lot of people don't have
credit cards and not a lot of vendors
accept them either. Some people
have gotten rid of their credit cards
altogether and only deal with cash."

Letters
And They Want to Drill?
Dear Editor: When contemplating
oil drilling off of Florida's precious
coastline, I can not think of a more
sobering and startling dose of
reality than the recent explosion
and sinking of the oil rig off the
coast of Louisiana. The scope of this
tragedy is immense: lost lives and
injuries, environmental devastation,
coastal residents fearing for their
livelihoods.
When the oil industry and their
federal and state political cronies
tell us that modern oil technologies
are safe, please remember the
lesson of this tragedy. For so little to
be gained from drilling, why risk a
catastrophe of this magnitude here?
Daniel Hodge


Thanks for Support
of Lighthouse Day
Dear Editor: On behalf of the
Egmont Key Alliance, I would like to
say thank you to the Gabber and their
reporter, Cathy Salustri for their
support of Florida Lighthouse Day on
Egmont Key. We appreciate your help
in getting the word out by publishing
our announcement and for the Detours
and Diversions article. By celebrating
and commemorating lighthouses, it
increases the awareness of their place
in history.
Everyone who came out to the
island on Saturday enjoyed the rare
opportunity to see the inside of the
Egmont Key lighthouse. Many of
those who attended said they read
about it "in the Gabber". What a great
local newspaper!
Thank you again for your support.

&aess De*a














By Matthew Margolis
On Grounding Jumpers
Before you even reach the door,
you hear it. Thump, thump, thump
-- his tail against the floor. He knows
you're home; he heard the car pull
into the drive. You hear the slightest
whimper as you linger, fumbling
through a ring of keys. The thumping
grows louder, faster, with an air of
impatience to it now: What's taking
so long? Don't you know I'm waiting
for you?
Boy, do you know!
As you slide the key into the lock
and turn the doorknob, you brace
yourself. The whimper bursts into a
barrage of high-pitched yelps as the
door swings open. For the next few
minutes, you stand your ground as
your best bud tries to scale you like
Mt. McKinley.


You've got a jumper on your hands.
Are you going to stand there and play
kissee-face all day, or are you going
to do something about it?
Let's face it, when a dog leaps into the
air andturns pirouettes in your honor,
it's cute -- to you. Some people may
not see the adorable side of it. While
you love your pooch unconditionally,
others have conditions -- i.e., that
he doesn't ruin their clothing, knock
them down, slobber all over their face
and hump their leg when they visit.
Fair enough.
Thankfully, it's easy to catch him
in the act and immediately correct
him, which is how you solve most dog
behavioral problems.
First, what not to do: stepping on
his back toes and kneeing him in
the chest are Gestapo measures,
not corrections. These tactics are
inhumane.

The best solution is to prevent the
problem from developing.
Decide right now that your dog
won't be allowed to jump on you or
other people. Be consistent. Correct
mistakes. Praise him when he keeps
his paws on the ground. Offer toys
and affection at his level, rather
than holding them high for him to
jump up and retrieve.
And if you don't want him to jump
on people, you can't allow him to
jump on the furniture or sleep in
your bed. If your dog is allowed to
jump up onto furniture, it will be
difficult, if not impossible, to make
him understand why he can't also
jump on you.
The reasons for his desire to jump
are pretty simple: Besides the
obvious fact that the furniture is
comfy and smells like you, he prefers
it to the floor because it is the more
dominant position. Just like when
he rises onto his hind legs and puts
his front paws on you -- that's a
dominant position.
Who's the boss here? Don't ask him.
He doesn't care. But he will fill the
position if it remains open.
A solution: Scout out your dog's
favorite area of the house. In that
area, create an irresistibly comfy
place -- on the floor -- that's all his.
Give him a bed or a plush cushion.
Cover it with warm blankets and soft
toys. Using the command "Place,"
teach him to go to that place when
you want him there. Teach him to go
to that place in lieu of your favorite
chair or your bed.
See the "Jumping on Furniture"
section of my book "When Good
Dogs Do Bad Things," available at
www.unclematty.com, for help with
teaching "Place" and other tips to
keep those paws on the ground.
Think about it: If your dog is trained
to Sit/Stay and Down/Stay on
command, he won't jump. He can't!
He's too busy pleasing you! This is
a perfect example of how obedience
training relates to problem solving.
It really works.

Why haven't I
been adopted?
My name
is Daisy
and I am a
Chocolate
Lab/ Pitt
bull mix. The
staff at Pet
Pal Animal
Shelt er
estimate that
I am between 3 and 4 years of age.
I have been at Pet Pal since June
of 2009-that's about 7 years in dog
time! Kind of like a house that's
been on the market too long, people
think that if I haven't been adopted
yet it's because there is something
wrong with me. The ONLY thing
that's wrong with me is that I'm
without a family to love.
I've proven myself time and time
again; going for rides in the car,
playing fetch, romping around with
other dogs at the dog park and
giving sweet kisses to my human
friends. I'm strong but I know what
I'm supposed to do and will do what
you ask of me.
Please someone give me a chance-
give me a place that I can call home.
Call 328-7738 between 11 a.m. and
4:30 p.m.

SPCA Pet of the Week
Levi, a 5 year old make DSH, is like a comfortable pair
of jeans who loves being a couch potato. This friendly,
low key lap cat would be happy just hanging around and
watching some television. He was happy doing just that
at his previous home until a new puppy arrived. He now
wants to find a no dog zone to call his own. Is there an
empty spot at your home for Levi? Come on in and try
him on for size at SPCA Tampa Bay, 9099 130 Avenue

ItStoroscoDe Guide


TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Relax.
Don't let the tense energy of work
and social pressure get to you. Your
easygoing style will attract the exact
people you need in your life in order to
keep things running smoothly. Those
people might be more high-strung
than you -- that's understandable.
Everyone needs a yin to their yang.
GEMINI (I1 l.y 21-June 21). You will
be extremely transparent to others
this week. Your face will betray your
heart's confidence, telling people
what you mean to keep to yourself.
This could liberate you. The people
you love will know you love them,
and what could be wrong with that?
They will love you back in the way
you so deserve.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). The
writer Henry Adams said, "Friends
are born, not made." You may feel
the truth in this statement as you
meet someone this week and feel an
instantaneous connection. It seems
as though you have known this
person in another lifetime, and that
you have a lot of catching up to do.
It's worth further pursuit.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Sometimes,
when you get what you want, you
are still vaguely unsatisfied. This
time will be different. You will
question your wants -- get clear
and specific about why you want it.
Understanding your own motives
might lead to a change in your goals.
The one you finally decide on will
lead to happiness.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). The
theme this week is: togetherness.
The special fondness between you
and your people will be highlighted
throughout the week. You'll be
laughing with loved ones as you
share old and new stories. Handle
complex problems on Wednesday. Get
organized on Thursday, and you'll be
ready for a fantastic weekend.


LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You'll be
working with creative people. You are
creative, too -- remember this. Do not
hand over a job to someone and walk
away expecting magic to happen.
The magic ingredient is your vision.
And your encouragement toward this
vision will allow others to expand in
ways they haven't done before.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You
maintain your responsibilities to
a high level. Do this with style.
Constant diligence may be a sign of
strength, but it won't be interpreted
that way. If you appear to be working
harder than everyone else, you will
seem weak. Delegate so that you can
get back to being cool, relaxed and in
control.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21).
Keep friends informed about what
you want and what you're doing --
they can help you. Also tell people
you don't know. And while you're at
it, give a shout out to all the unseen
forces of nature and heaven, the
mystical deities and anyone else you
can think of. It can't hurt to have
everyone on your side.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19).
You often dream of the future,
painting a picture of how you want it
to be. Use this skill in reverse. Dream
of things that never were, rewriting
your history to your own liking. By
focusing in this fanciful way on your
story thus far, you'll come up with a
kinder, gentler way of viewing your
past and yourself.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18).
The person who makes you laugh
might not be the same person you
would turn to when you need a favor.
Both people are necessary in your
network. This week, you'll have an
increased awareness of the different
roles people play in your life, and of
how you can make the most of your
relationships.


PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You
will be made aware of beliefs you
didn't know you held. It is natural to
be subtly biased in one way or another
about those who are very different
from you. Proactively seek out people
who are different in order to broaden
your awareness and views. In doing
so, you will be a proponent of peace
and tolerance.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). If
you feel imprisoned by your current
circumstances, you'll only attract
more oppressive limitations. So
even though someone seems to be
leaning on you too hard this week,
think of all the other ways in which
you are free. You will be liberated by
your thoughts and by your power to
imagine your ideal world.
This Week's Birthdays: You'll
be involved in a glamorous project
or situation. You'll receive so much
attention through the next seven
weeks that you'll develop new
systems and personal rules by which
to navigate. A sweetheart heaps love
and attention on you in June and
July. You'll have the chance to invest
in your own talent or business in
August. In October, a personal issue
is resolved with the help of a skilled
practitioner. There's a windfall in
December. You'll do philanthropic
work in January.

Warm Weather Means
Active Gators and Crocs
The onset of warm weather in
the spring is when Florida's native
crocodilians start getting active,
and the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC)
is urging Floridians and visitors to
be cautious when having fun in and
around water.
Florida is home to two native
crocodilians the American alligator,
which is found in all 67 counties, and
the American crocodile, which may
be found in coastal areas of the Keys,
Southeast and Southwest Florida.
Both species have shared Florida's
waters with people for centuries.
The FWC recommends keeping
pets away from the water. There
are other precautionary measures
people should take to reduce
potential conflicts with alligators and
crocodiles, and they are available in
the "Living with Alligators" brochure
at M\yFWC.com/Alligator and the
"Living with Crocodiles" brochure at
f\ lFFWC.com/Crocodile.
The FWC advises, if you have
concerns with an alligator or crocodile
that poses a threat to you, your pets
or property, call the FWC's toll-free
Nuisance Alligator Hotline at 866-
FWC-GATOR (392-4286).
Alligators and crocodiles are
an important part of Florida's
heritage and play a valuable role
in the ecosystems where they live.

and crocodiles, visit MyFIFWC.com/

Fingerprinting
in the Field
ST. PETE BEACH- The St. Pete Beach
Police Department will soon have a
mobile handheld wireless fingerprint
scanner capable of capturing and
providing forensic quality biometric
data. They will be able to compare the
biometric data against stored watch
list and databases of automated
fingerprint identification systems.
The city accepted a federal grant of
$5,853 to purchase the scanner as


well as cameras and software for the
detective division.

Managing City Records
ST. PETE BEACH- The city
commission approved $12,000 to
setup a plan for managing the city's
records. The plan would cover
maintaining, storing, archiving and
disaster recovery of records citywide.
This is going to be an outline of
recommended steps. Once the plan is
determined the work to implement it


will be done mostly by the city staff,
said City Manager Mike Bonfield.
"We need to get a plan in place to get
our arms around the issue."

Band to Present Last

Max Millspaugh, Musical Director
of the South Pasadena Community

Choice" and I will share some
personal favorites with our audience,"

the park setting. I also have chosen
some other titles including "Pirates
of the Caribbean", "2nd Connecticut
March", some music from Jimmy
Hughs, and "An American Tribute"
said Millspaugh. "This will be a lot of
fun" he said.
The concert is free to the public.

So metitn O n my mind
a By Bill Northrop B_Northrop@theGabber.com


So what should we be doing
about immigration? Not
immigration, but illegal
immigration. I don't think anyone
is opposed to legal immigration. It's
the illegal part that galls people.
Problem is that you can't tell legal
from illegal. And, we're not talking
just about Mexican illegals.
Not only are there illegals from
Mexico, but other Latin American
countries, too as well as illegals
from China, Phillipines, India,
Vietnam, and Korea. All told there
are about 37 million legal and illegal
immigrants in this country and one
third of those are illegal, according
to one estimate.
The big problem now is in Arizona,
one of the key points of illegal
entry (in spite of fences and border
patrols). Florida actually has twice
the number of illegal immigrants as
Arizona, but the flow of immigrants
is overwhelming Arizona's
institutions. The violent drug gangs
complicate the problem.
In response, Arizona passed a
bevy of laws directing local police
to question and detain illegals,
essentially taking over the federal
government's jobs. The laws may
not be constitutional and may
be discriminatory, but Arizona's
making a point to protect its


citizens. Instead of taking charge,
sending in the National Guard to
bolster the border patrol, the feds
are complaining about the Arizona
laws. Congress is responding by
putting immigration reform on the
top burner.
This is not so much a partisan issue
as it is a political issue. That is, both
sides are jockeying for a favorable
position. The Bush administration's
proposals were shot down by both
political parties for a variety of
reasons, not the least of which was
a concern that any reform would
provide citizenship to the 10,000,000
already here. In fact, the debate
centers around those potential
voters. Which group do you irritate:
the Latinos already here and others
who might get citizenship, or the rest
of the electorate who are literally up
in arms about the situation?
The final non-decision was to build a
fence and boost the number of border
patrol agencies. There wasn't much
follow through, however. Hence, the
new Arizona laws. So, the debates
start again. Should amnesty be
granted? There's a practical matter
here. Deporting all those people is
impractical from a stand point of
time, manpower, money, and will.
But, will amnesty just encourage
others to come over? I think so.

Some are arguing that everyone has
a right to settle here. This doesn't
have much traction, but there
was a time when we welcomed all
who wanted to come. And, indeed,
present day immigration (legal and
illegal) met agricultural and service
needs. Later restrictions were drawn
on ethnic groups such as Italians
and, for a time, Chinese could not
immigrate. Quotas were set for each
country. These were later lifted for
more selective immigration with
criteria for education, talent and so
forth taking precedence. Congress
didn't want European refugees after
World War II, but the Cold War
opened up slots over time.
Immigration is not static. We get
over a million new immigrants a
year not including children born
to them. And, people come here
under many provisions of the law:
business, tourist, work, temporary
work, NAFTA, student, trainee,
intra company, and religious. And,
that doesn't include those who get
political asylum, or are taken in in
the aftermath of wars. The bad part
is that there are so many successful
and contributing and desirable
people who can't get citizenship.
However, we do have to control our
borders just as we have to control our
spending. We simply can't afford not
to. It won't be easy and it won't be
painless and there will be political
clashes as well as citizen clashes.
It will take political will which
will have to be forced upon those
governing us. We're still the country
of destination for the majority of the
world seeking a higher standard of
living as well as freedoms that don't
exist elsewhere.
At least we can be proud that we
don't have to wall our people in and
that people are breaking down our
doors to get in. There are reasons for
that. America's not such a terrible
place after all

Gulfport's Free Oral
Cancer Screening
The City of Gulfport, in conjunction
with the Oral Cancer Foundation,
will be hosting a free Oral Cancer
Screening on Saturday, May 8 from
10 a.m. 2 p.m. at the Walgreen's
parking lot on the corner of 58th St.
S. and Gulfport Blvd. S. in Gulfport.
This event was spearheaded by
Councilman David Hastings through
his experience with fighting oral
cancer and being a survivor.
Oral cancer belongs to the head
and neck cancer group, and is often
referred to by other names such as
tongue cancer, mouth cancer, tonsil
cancer, lip cancer, and throat cancer.
While some people think this is a
rare cancer, it is not. Approximately
100 people in the U.S. will be newly
diagnosed with oral cancer each day,
and it takes a life in the U.S. every
hour of every day.
The key to reducing the death rate
of oral cancer is earlier detection,
and the key to that is for all adults
to receive opportunistic oral cancer
examinations at least once a year.
Tobacco users, heavy alcohol users,
and those with a prior history of
cancer should be examined more
frequently. Even people who do not
share those traits shouldbe examined
annually in light of the mounting
evidence of a link between oral cancer
and the sexually transmitted human
papilloma virus (HPV type 16).
This event is co-sponsored by the
City of Gulfport and the Oral Cancer
Foundation. To learn more about
oral cancer go to www.oralcancer.org
on the web. For event information,
email dhastings@mygulfport.us or
call Gail Biron at 727-893-1118.

There are over 15,000 Senior Centers
in the United States.
The Senior Center sent their

specific areas: Purpose, Community,
Governance, Administration
and Human Resources, Program

and Facility. NISC then sent onsite
reviewer Susan Orr from Johnson
City, TN to review records and see
the Senior Center in action. Ms. Orr
gave her initial stamp of approval on
November 30, 2009 taking special
notice of how well the Senior Center
partners with outside agencies.


The Gulfport Senior Center will
have an Accreditation Celebration on
Wednesday, May 19 with the Office
on Aging of St. Petersburg Manager
and NISC representative Jay Morgan
presenting the award. The Senior
Center will also honor Senior Services
Coordinator Cynthia Dean who
spearheaded the project and dedicated
countless hours compiling the
required documents. This celebration
is proudly sponsored by the Gulfport
( h.iiiil'.- of Commerce.
Staff has invited participants,
volunteers, and community partners
to help celebrate this honored
distinction. The Area Agency on
Aging of Pasco-Pinellas, Inc. and
representatives from local, state and
federal levels of government have also
been invited.

The City is contracting with a
wildlife specialist to trap the animal.
If you should see the animal, efforts
should be made to go inside until it
leaves the area. The following is a list
of tips to help safeguard your family
and pets:
Keep cats and small dogs indoors.
When walking small dogs, always
keep them on a leash.
Coyotes are most active dusk to
dawn. Avoid walking pets after
dark.
Bring along pepper spray or a
stick in case a coyote gets aggressive.
Screaming or yelling and waving
arms sometimes won't work on
coyotes that have lost their fear of
humans.
Any pet smaller than 45 pounds
should never be left outside past
4p.m.
Feed pets indoors. Eliminate
potential food and water sources


such as fallen fruit or vegetables and
standing water.
Store trash in covered, heavy-duty
containers.
Keep yards free of potential
hiding places. Remove thick brush
and weeds. Enclose the bottoms of
porches and decks.
If you encounter a coyote that
behaves aggressively, you have
probably gotten too close to its prey
or its family. Try to scare the coyote
by yelling and waving your arms.
Throw rocks, sticks or other objects.
Do not turn away and run.
Do not feed coyotes. Doing so can
make them less afraid of humans and
potentially more dangerous.
Please contact the Treasure Island
Police Department at 727- ". 17-4595 or
e-mail police@mytreasureisland.org
with the location of any sightings.

WellINEWS


By Scott Lafee
Dump the Plump
Everybody loves a chubby
baby, but those cute rolls of fat may
hide a developing problem: The
infant's ability to learn to crawl and
walk.
A new study, published in the
Journal of Pediatrics, found that
infants who are overweight could be
slower to develop motor skills than
skinnier babies.
"This is concerning because children
with motor skill delays may be less
physically active and thus less likely
to explore the environment beyond
arm's reach," said Meghan Slining,
the study's lead author anda nutrition
doctoral student at the University of
North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
The study's findings were based
on observations of 217 African-
American first-time mothers, and
are part of a larger effort to examine
how parenting and infant-feeding


styles relate to diet and health
in a population at risk of obesity.
The motor skills of infants were
assessed at 3, 6, 9, 12 and 18 months.
Overweight infants were 1.8 times
as likely as non-overweight infants
to score low for motor development.
Infants with high subcutaneous fat
(those rolls under their skin) were
2.32 times more likely than babies
without rolls to have a low score.
"There are a number of studies
that show that weight status during
the infancy and toddler years can
set young children on an obesity
trajectory that may be hard to
change," said Slining.
In other words, fat babies tend to
become fat adults.
STORIES FOR THE
WAITING ROOM
A United Nations' study suggests
that far more people in India have
access to a cell phone than to a
toilet and safe sanitation. The study
found that roughly 545 million cell


phones are now connected to service
in India, which is the world's second
most populous country at 1.17 billion
people. By contrast, only 366 million
Indians have access to toilets and
adequate sanitation.
Worldwide, approximately 1.1
billion people lack access to any
kind of toilet. And the World Health
Organization estimates that number
is likely to rise. Poor sanitation is
a major contributor to water-borne
diseases that, in the past three
years alone, have killed 4.5 million
children under the age of 5 worldwide
-- a death toll comparable to the
combined populations of Ireland and
Costa Rica.
GET ME THAT. STAT!
A Harvard study has found that
migraine sufferers who lack private
health insurance are twice as
likely to get inadequate treatment
for their headaches compared to
privately insured patients. People
with Medicaid also get substandard
care, researchers say. Migraines
are common in the United States,
affecting about 18 percent of women
and 6 percent of men.
NUMBER CRUNCHER
A single serving of Ore-Ida Tater Tots
(85 grams) contains 140 calories, 63
from fat. It has 7 grams of total fat or
11 percent of the recommended total
fat intake for a 2,000-calorie daily
diet. It also contains 310 milligrams
of sodium (13 percent); 17 grams of
total carbohydrates (6 percent); 2
grams of dietary fiber (8 percent) and
2 grams of protein.

Parks and Recreation
Earns Accreditation
On March 19 City of St. Petersburg
Parks and Recreation became one
of only 90 agencies in the United
States currently holding national
accreditation from the Commission
for Accreditation of Park and
Recreation Agencies (CAPRA). This
distinguished accomplishment was
announced in Washington, DC at
the National Recreation and Park
Association (NRPA) 2010 Legislative
Forum.
The process of accreditation is
extensive and took several years
to accomplish. After the initial
application, the agency completed
a detailed self-assessment report
followed by a visit by a team of
experienced park and recreation
professionals. A final review
was conducted by CAPRA and
accreditation was formally conferred
by the Commission on March 19,
2010.
National accreditation requires park
and recreation agencies to respond to
155 standards representing elements
of effective and efficient park and
recreation operations. To become
accredited, agencies must fully meet
36 standards deemed fundamental
to a quality agency and at least
101 of the remaining standards. St.
Petersburg Parks and Recreation
passed all 155 standards.
Sherry McBee, director of parks and
recreation, accepted the National
Accreditation Recognition Award
for City of St. Petersburg at the
accreditation hearing before the
Commission.

Smoky Joe's Caf6
By Cathy Salustri

Smokey Joe's Caf6, the latest
musical offering from St. Petersburg
Little Theater, doesn't offer deep
artistic themes or funny plot twists,
and that's OK. What it does offer- two
acts filled with fantastic music from
decades past- makes it an enjoyable
evening.
In sharp contrast to other current
community and professional
offerings, this musical, as director
Frank Hale says, brings back
memories of the "Golden Years" of
rock and roll. That's all. It doesn't
have deeper meaning; it doesn't have
symbolism. It has music, and plenty
of it.
All the songs in Smokey Joe's Caf6
are the work of musical duo Mike
Leiber and Jerry Stoller. Don't
recognize the name? They wrote-
among others-"Hound Dog," "Little
Egypt," "Stand By Me" and "Poison
Ivy." They composed songs for the
Coasters, the Drifters, Ben E. King,
and other musical greats. After 43
years writing music together, they


(the musical) Serves
wrote Smokey Joe's Cafe, a musical
showcasing some of their work.
The musical tells a loose story-it
all takes place in a night club-and
while the entire production team at
St. Petersburg Little Theatre did a
phenomenal job with sets and lights,
it doesn't matter: the crowd there last
Friday night cared about the music.
Every time the notes of a familiar
song started to play, it seemed that
someone in the audience started
to hum along. Not exactly fair to
the performers, but for those in the
house, they were too busy reliving
their past to care.
About those performers-Hale
selected quite a cast. Latoya
McCormick, featured prominently
in Smokey Joe's Caf6 and many
other local musicals, steals the stage
without meaning to every time she
starts to sing, but in this production
she has some great competition.
13-year-old Jon Viktor Corpuz has
surprising power for his stature as
well as a clean voice and great stage
presence, and Anthony Murphy does
a superb job both singing and acting

Up Good Times
(he has a touching solo towards the
end of the second act.)
Perhaps one of the best moments in
the show is when Hale puts Cranstan
Cumberbatch and McCormick
onstage together for their duet "Treat
Me Nice/Hound Dog." Cumberbatch
matches McCormick's power, talent,
and stage presence, and the audience
fell in love with the twosome as
they sang. Cumberbatch continues
to delight and seduce the audience
throughout the show.
This show is great, but it isn't without
problems. (' l.-Ily, the sound doesn't
do the performers justice. At Friday
night's performance it seemed that
singers appeared onstage without
their microphones turned on, making
it next to impossible to hear the song.
Apparently the performers had to
share their wireless microphones,
which did a great disservice to the
performers.
Even with the frustrating sound
issues and the occasional misstep,
Smokey Joe's Caf6 is a worthwhile
evening, especially for anyone who
remembers these songs from when
they were new. If you don't remember
them, then this show makes a
wonderful introduction.
Smokey Joe's Caf6 runs Friday
and Saturday nights and Sunday
afternoons through May 9 at St.
Petersburg Little Theatre. Call (727)

You & THE


LAWV ,

By Robert J. Myers, Esquire
How is Your
Legal Health?
(Part II)
In our last article, the need
for periodic legal checkups was
examined. The following are some
of the legal problems which may be
uncovered by a legal checkup:
WILLS AND ESTATE
PLANNING
An indicator of good legal health
usually includes having a valid will
and some basic estate plan. If you
don't have a will, your personal and
real property may not be distributed
in accordance with your desires. In
addition, unnecessary expenses and
taxes may be incurred and certain
family members could possibly
inherit your assets contrary to your
desires.

* Dry Eye Care
* Cataract & Glaucoma
* Drivers License Exams


A trust is another effective estate
planning document. A trust allows
you to transfer property to your
designated heirs utilizing a successor
trustee to implement your specific
instructions. If you create a trust
in a last will and testament, this is
called a testamentary trust. Another
form of trust is a living trust which is
created by written contract. Living
trusts are very useful estate planning
tools for everyone--not only the very
wealthy. A living trust assists in the
avoidance of probate and will help in
keeping your affairs out of the public
record and private.
It is critical to review your estate
planning documents whenever
important changes in your life occur.
If you marry, move to a new state,
have a child or lose a loved one, an
update of your legal documents may
be necessary. Also, it is an excellent
idea to discuss with your lawyer
if your estate plan is keeping pace
with the value of your property and
is updated to address changes in
Florida law and tax laws. Revisions
may be made with the drafting of
new documents or an amendment
to existing documents may be

necessary. It is important to never
make a change in your old will or
trust by writing on or crossing out
words or phrases which you want to
eliminate as this may invalidate your
documents.
DIVORCE
A lawyer should be consulted if
your marriage is ending or you are
contemplating ending your marriage.
Issues concerning child custody,
financial support and a fair division
of the marital property will need to be
addressed. If your spouse threatens
to harass or harm you, hide marital
property or take your children in
violation of your visitation or custody
rights, a lawyer can assist you in
seeking protection against these
improper acts of your spouse.

The Secrets in Saint Petersburg
At Matthew 16:19, Jesus gave the keys to the kingdom of heaven to Peter. And those keys
pertain to parables (code language), which are the same as parallels.
For example, the masons began building Solomon's Temple at 1st Kings 6:1 and finished it
at 1st Kings 9:1, which are the same combination of numbers as Peter's keys.
Likewise, at Matthew 20:1-9, we're told that the kingdom of heaven is like a man who does
his work at the 6th, 9th and 11th hour. And this confirms that some secrets can manifest
through parallels (11) of 6 and/or 9.
Notice that the most famous foundation that the masons laid in the city of Saint Petersburg
is Tropicana Field, which is located between the thoroughfares of 16th Street, 1st Avenue S.
and 9th Street. 1619.
Also notice that Saint Peter's Cathedral is located in Downtown Saint Petersburg on the
corner of 4th Street and 2nd Avenue N. (4+2=6), which parallels the Masonic Temple on the
corner of 4th Street and 2nd Avenue S. (4+2=6).
The correlations continue with the enslaved children of Isreal being bricklayers/masons
(Exodus 5:14), because the Lord also used masonic tools (Amos 7:7).
Jesus was also known as the Chief Cornerstone who was rejected by the builders. So it's no
coincidence that Jesus was killed at the age of 33 because that's the number of the highest
degree of the Masons.
Another way to "confirm the word with signs" is with the fact that the highest or northern
most part of the land of Israel being at 33 degrees latitude, which is significant because that's
on a parallel line with where the Civil War began in South Carolina, After all, Isaiah 61:1
reveals the Lord is coming back to set the captives free! And those captives reportedly first
came to the American colonies in Jamestown, Virginia in the year 1619.
Remember, America began in the city named after King James meaning Jamestown,
Virginia. And the King James Scriptures have been foreseeing (Galatians 3:8) America's future
through parallels.

A Greener View
By Jeff Rugg


Help Feed the
Hungry with Your
Garden's Produce
According to a 2007 U.S. Department
of Agriculture report -- the most
recent published numbers I found --
4.1 percent of American households
experience hunger by skipping
meals, eating too little or even going
whole days without food. Of the 8.5
million people in this condition, 2.9
million were children. Since 2007,
the economy has gotten worse, so how
many Americans are experiencing
hunger today? No matter what the
number, it is too many in this land of
abundance.
Have you started planting your
garden yet? Are you going to have
extra tomatoes andzucchini again this
year? If so, here is a good use for the
leftover fruits, vegetables and herbs.
You can donate them to your local
food pantry though a program called
Plant A Row for the Hungry (PAR),
which is a public service campaign
by the Garden Writers Association of
America (GWAA). Home and Garden
Television, Master Gardeners and
several other companies help with
this program.
At many food banks, there is very
little fresh food available. Some of
them do not have enough storage for
fresh foods, but many do have storage
for fresh fruits and vegetables, which
are highly sought after.
Sharing your excess food can be
done on the individual level and on
the group level. As a gardener, you
can set aside specific rows or just
individual plants. Or you can give a
certain percentage of your harvest.
You may also look for places where
extra food could be available, such as
farmers' markets or local orchards.
Then you can help them give their
extra produce to a food pantry. The
next time you go to a u-pick operation
for blueberries or strawberries, plan
to harvest some extra food for the
pantry. If you run a u-pick operation,
then post signs explaining what PAR
can do for the local food bank.


Check with your local pantry to see
what kinds of produce they need.
Long-lasting fruits andvegetables are
best. Try broccoli, cabbage, carrots,
cucumbers, eggplant, green beans,
onions, peas, potatoes, tomatoes,
squash and zucchini. Tree fruits are
also good for areas that have oranges,
grapefruit, peaches, cherries, apples,
almonds or pecans. Be sure to clean
the produce first. Fresh herbs as well
as fresh flowers are also appreciated.
This is not just a campaign for the
individual; it works better if there
are a lot of people involved. You can
check the GWAAwebsite (www.gwaa.
org) for more information on starting
a local PAR campaign. You can also
call the PAR administrative office
toll-free at 877-GWA-APAR (492-
2727). They will be able to supply
you with workbooks, press kits and
public service TV commercials.
Companies could donate money
that would provide for advertising,
transportation or other PAR
campaign needs. An appliance store
could supply the local pantry with
refrigerators or freezers needed to
keep the produce fresh.
You do not need a garden to grow
fresh vegetables. Large pots, tubs
and other containers may be used.
A church, school or business parking
lot can grow vegetables. How about
the idea of all the businesses in town
adopting a container to see which one
can grow the most vegetables? Add a
few flowering plants, and the whole
town can be decorated in flowers and
growing food at the same time. That
is what the Union County businesses
in Ohio did with over 60 barrels.
Does your town have an abandoned
plot of land? Then maybe it is time
to increase the town's property
value and turn it into a community
garden.
If you are a member of a garden
club, you should ask about your
group adopting a local shelter to
supply with some fresh food. You
may be able to combine your efforts
with a local school or other kids
group. Your group can teach them
about gardening, while they do some


of the harder work. The kids will also
learn that their efforts can make a
difference.
With over 84 million gardeners in the
country, we can make a difference.
Don't let any of your garden surplus
go to waste this summer. Grow a
good feeling in your heart and Plant
a Row for the Hungry.

The Community Garden
is Ready for Planting!
GULFPORT- Abrandnew community
garden is ready to be planted! The
garden is available to residents of
both Gulfport and St. Petersburg;
providing the opportunity to grow
vegetables, annuals and other non-
permanent plants in a plot of their
own.
The garden is a grassroots endeavor
being coordinated by a group of
local gardening enthusiasts. It is
supported by the City of Gulfport
and the South 49th Street Business
Association. It is intended to provide
a sustainable, educational, and
Gabber April 29 May 5, 2010


aesthetically appealing garden in the
Gulfport community. The garden is
located on Preston Avenue between
51st and 52nd Street South. Plots
are available for $50 for a season,
with two seasons a year (March-
August and September-February).
Organizers hope that eventually the
garden will offer educational courses
for both youth and adults on topics
ranging from organic gardening to
xeriscaping. The focus will be on
sustainable and organic gardening.


The grassroots community group
is currently seeking gardeners with
interest in having their own plot
as well as volunteers to help with
the garden. Plots are currently
available for planting (sunny plots,
approximately 60 square feet, water
provided). More information is
available byvisiting www. so49.org, or
to sign up and reserve your own plot
please visit BanyanScapes Nursery,

ROTC, from front page


JROTC elite fitness team; a
competitive organization that has
won the District Championship 14
years in a row. They will be competing
at the State Championships and
expect to win.
Jade has won several scholarships
for college including the Bright
Futures Scholarship, the Ebony
and Doorways Scholarships, and
the Ann Macy Scholarship. These
scholarships will enable her to go to
the University of Florida, where she
will study Pharmacy.
LT Col Wayne McGlamry, Bogie's
Army JROTC instructor, has nothing
but glowing recommendations for
her.
"Jade is an outstanding individual;
self-motivated, energetic with a
beautiful personality. She's always
consistent and is a great team
leader. She leads by example. It's
going to be hard to let her go (when
she graduates)."


Although Jade comes from a military
family; her father is presently serving
in Afghanistan and her brother is in
Korea, she has no plans to pursue a
military career.
"JROTC has really prepared me
for life," she smiles. "I'm getting a
good feel for college life by going to
St. Pete College now, and I think I'll
be ready in 2011 for the University of
Florida."
Each year the JROTC students/
cadets write an essay for competition
with other JROTC cadets from the
US Army JROTC programs along
the east coast. Jade was selected
the winner from Bogie. Below is her
winning essay.
How does the JROTC program
build leadership and character?
The Junior Reserve Officer Training
Corps program aids young cadets in
building leadership and character
through an assortment of presented
opportunities. The countless
experiences in the classroom, during
off- campus activities, and within
everyday life all blend together to
develop wholesome individuals.
The JROTC classroom is a home
away from home. The active
environment is always pleasant.
Every person is welcome and shown
cheerful hospitality. The classroom
is similar to a well organized home;
equipped with rules, regulations,
and responsibilities. Instructors
of the greatest valor seem to act as
nurturing mothers. They graciously
mandate the home each day. The
instructors teach cadets not only
military traditions and customs, but
also how to conduct themselves in an

honorable manner. Cadetsearnproper
ranks in the classroom that allow
them authority and responsibilities.
It is then the cadet's duty to be a
positive influence toward their peers.
This includes exhibiting loyalty,
respect, and integrity; qualities of the
JROTC leadership strategy. Cadets
practice loyalty by coming to class on
time and completing all assignments
on time. Respect and integrity are
practiced through collaborations with
superiors, peers, and with oneself.
The skills learned in the JROTC
home are also useful outside of the
classroom. Numerous occasions
provide exceptional training for
physical, academic, and behavioral
performance. Teams such as
raiders, drill, and marksmanship
teach discipline and perseverance;
qualities that increase proficiency.
In turn confidence is developed, a
characteristic essential to being a
great leader in many situations.
The community service activities
that JROTC cadets can participate
in support character development
through public events, interactions,
and communication. Volunteer work
such as the annual "Toys for Tots"
drive introduces new settings for
cadets to experience.
The benefits of the JROTC program
are endless. Lessons learned from
the classroom can also be useful in
reality. Whether that be at home,
work, gatherings, or even the mall.
Being able to respectfully present
oneself can be a difficult technique
for young people to master. Yet,
JROTC encourages perfection in this
aspect with helpful examples and
step by step mentoring. Observing,
listening, and understanding others
is thoroughly taught in the program
to induce positive communication
habits. Thus, further contributing to
good leadership and character traits.
All in all, this program is an
excellent source of knowledge and
experience. The superb opportunities
within the classroom, off campus,
and in everyday life accentuate the
JROTC mission. That mission is to
motivate young people to become
better citizens. Within that mission
Junior Reserve Officer Training
Corp is unequivocally supporting the
building of leadership and character
every single day.

Y ou could say my
motto is 'been

says Keith Sanders, from
Sanders Law, P.A.
He says that for two
reasons. First, he says
his more than 18 years
of experience as an at-
torney specializing in
handling "literally thou-
sands" of bankrupt-
cies 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 Chapter
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 situa-
tion where they have
been worried about how
to keep the lights on, but
I have been there myself
so I can really relate to
what people are going
through," said Sanders.
"Plus, many people are
very embarrassed when
they come to me, but
when I tell them how
embarrassing it was for
me to have to stand in
front of judges and col-
leagues who knew me
and go through the pro-
cess myself, that usu-

ally helps to put people
more at ease and under-
stand that I have been
there and done that MY-
SELF."
"You know, in 99 per-
cent of bankruptcy cases
the situation is that bad
things happen to good
people. They have gone
through an expensive
health crisis or a divorce
or just got in over their
head with debt."
He began his career as
a staff attorney for the
U.S. Trustee in Atlanta.
He is licensed to practice
law in both Florida and
Georgia.
"I like what I do be-
cause I feel like I can
help people get a fresh
start," said Sanders.
"Since the initial con-
sultation is free, you re-
ally don't have anything
to lose to meet with me
and we can assess your
situation and see how
it might be best for you
to proceed. Bankruptcy
can be one solution to
getting back on your feet
financially, but it may
not be the best or only
solution for you.
Sanders has held a


written professional pa-
pers concerning bank-
ruptcy law in general,
ECF requirements and
new issues. He is a
former director of the
Bankruptcy Section of
the State Bar of Geor-
gia.
The firm also handles
Short Sale negotiations,
defense against foreclo-
sures, wills & trusts,

Outside of the court-
room, Sanders lives in
an unusual home in
Gulfport that was one
of the featured proper-
ties in a recent Pink Fla-
mingo Tour of Homes. It
has a tree growing right
up through the floor and
up through the ceiling of
his kitchen. He has five

How To Determine
a Good Deal on
Bath Tissue
There's a question that shows up in
my mailbox a lot, and it's one that has
gone unanswered until now. "How
can I compare prices for toilet paper
when there is no standard size?" For
years, I've searched for a formula that
would offer a way to find a bargain on
bath tissue. Today's first reader tip
offers just that: a quick and easy way
to compare across all the variations
and packaging sizes.
TIP OF THE MONTH. Shop for bath
tissue the way you shop for carpet or
fabric: by the price per square foot.
There is no standard square footage
for a roll, but the measurements are


listed on the package. I have found
that the closer the price is to the
square feet of tissue in the package
the better the deal is for two-ply
tissue. For example, if there are
525 square feet of tissue total, the
price should be no more than $5.25.
I have seen 360 square feet of tissue
selling for $9. That is almost triple-
price! This same strategy works for
figuring out the best price on paper
towels, too. -- Terri D., Minnesota
COLOR KEEPER. Years ago, I
worked for the Gap, back when you
still could buy unwashed Levi's. We
always suggested that you dry-clean
your jeans or slacks just once before
laundering them for the first time.
The chemicals in the dry cleaning
process help set the dye into the

fibers, so they do not fade as quickly.
-- Diane K., Ohio
PURSE-FREE. I don't carry all of
my membership cards everywhere I
go, and I even have stopped carrying
a purse or a wallet. I only carry my
license and any cards I know I'll need
that particular day. This may seem
a little extreme, but it happened as
a gradual result of leaving my credit
cards at home. Instead of swiping my
rewards cards, I just give the cashier
my phone number, and I still get
all the benefits. This arrangement
rarely has caused me a problem, and
I have found living purse-free to be
incredibly liberating. -- Lorelei 0.,
e-mail
MUSICAL MICE. When I heard
a mouse in my bathroom drawers
shredding my cotton swabs and
leaving droppings, I put small
headphones in the drawer, found
the most obnoxious music station I
could, and turned the volume up to
high. Rodents hate loud noises, and
it drives them away. Once the mice
leave, block all entrances. -- Elizabeth
M., e-mail
SMART CAR. I saved money on
my auto repairs when I found a good
mechanic and made friends with him.
He and I take my car to his house
and do the repairs there, together. I
have saved more than $600 this year
alone, and the next time the problem
occurs, I know what to do. -- Scott,
Georgia

Host Families Needed
for Exchange Students
Pacific Intercultural Exchange (PIE)
is a non-profit organization looking
for caring families to host high
school students from many countries
around the world. The students are
between 15 17 years of age and will

Gabber April 29 May 5, 2010


attend school for an academic year or
semester at your local high school.
There is no such thing as a typical
host family. They accept single
parents, retired couples, families with
small children, teens or no children at
all! You can have a great experience
hosting an International teen. The
students are prescreened, speak
English and are looking forward to
learning about our culture while
teaching Americans about theirs.
Students will have medical insurance
and their own spending money to
cover clothing, school expenses,
entertainment, etc. Host families
should provide not only a loving home
and food for their daily meals, but
also a quiet place to be able to study
and bedroom to rest. Although host
families are not paid, one is eligible
to claim a charitable tax deduction of
$50 per month for every month the
student is in the home.

Looking for the fresheit Fruits and Vetelables?


Pick Your Own or Shop for Local Seasonal Produce.


By Cathy Salustri
Did you buy asparagus at
the local community market
this week?
Would it shock you to know
that it probably came from al-
most 5000 miles n, .i\ '
That's one of the reasons
Gulfport's Tuesday morning
market brought in Rebecca's
Veggie Patch, a local market
offering produce grown at
family farms within 50 miles
of St. Petersburg.
"The idea of food miles has
been talked about quite a bit:
how far your food has to trav-
el to get to you. If something
is in season, it's probably go-
ing to be relatively closer to
you," says Andy Huse, a food
scholar with the University
of South Florida. People who
look for food with low mile-
age, or "locavores," do so be-
cause of nutritional and envi-
ronmental reasons.
"The longer produce sits, the
less nutritional value it's go-
ing to have. The chemistry
of all these plants change.
The moment you pick corn,
all the sugars in the corn
start to turn to starch. That's
why freshly picked corn is so
prized. The chemistry of all
these foods changes the mo-
ment you pick it. It may look
nice, but the vitamins might
not be as much," Huse says.
A word of caution from Huse:
"local" means different things
to different people. Aspara-
gus, in season, often comes
from Mexico.
"For some, the idea of ship-
ping asparagus from Mexico
is unconscionable. Some peo-
ple try to take it even close to
home, from their home state,
for example," Huse says.
More and more people are
asking questions about where
their food comes from, which
is why Gulfport's Tuesday
Morning Market Manager
Daniel Hodge brought in Re-


becca's Veggie Patch.
"I thought it was important
to include an option for people
who want to support locally
grown and organic produce.
Some people won't buy any
produce except for organic,
and I wanted to make sure
we had something there that
supported that need," Daniel
Hodge, the market manager,
told The Gabber.
Huse agrees.
"(The idea of food miles) has
become a really big issue for
consumers. Co-ops are com-
ing back; they're not just for
hippies anymore. It's becom-
ing another trend, along with
eating sustainable fish.
Of course, local doesn't mean
cheaper- yet.
"In general, you're probably
going to spend more money.
It's just like anything: it's the
economy of scale. Once more
local things become avail-
able, it could be cheaper,"
Huse says. People buy local
for reasons other than price,
he explains.
"You're getting better pro-
duce, you're getting fresher
produce," Huse says. 1NI.-
people that's what they want.
The resources are coming up
over time: a lot of these co-ops
did not exist 10 years ago.
There are a lot of people look-
ing for alternatives. There
are signs of hope."
Want to buy local? Check
out what's in season locally
with The Gabber's harvest
calendar and list of places
that allow customers to pick
their own produce. For more
resources and information

food gets treated before it ar-
rives at your supermarket,

Their mission is to responsibly

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
night, if you have questions about
the dog's behavior, health, etc... You
are not alone! But the best reason of
all to foster is the reward of knowing
that you saved a life.
Please fill out a volunteer application
at www.floridadoggiepaws.com or
call Florida Doggie Paws at 813-
283-1695 and open your heart and
your home to one of these poor dogs
that just needs a place to stay for a
few weeks until they can find their
forever home.

Beach Weddings 4 You:
Dream Weddings in Paradise
By Cathy Salustri .. -m- -


After 25 years of designing
romantic flowers for weddings,
Karen Lanigan decided it was
time to try something even more
romantic: creating entire dream
weddings on the beach, down to
the last detail. That's how Beach
Weddings 4 You came into
existence.
Beach Weddings 4 You is a
team of wedding professionals,
led by Karen, who are all
devoted to making your wedding
one of the most beautiful days of
your life. Her team of wedding
experts include professional
wedding photographer Stella
Mansfield, officiant services by
Cherish Coddington and Bonnie
Revenbark, invitations designed
by Stephanie Lawson and
Destiny Design, and wedding
reflection books created by
Wayne Kent.
If you've always dreamed of
a beach wedding, Karen and
her wedding team have all the
resources to make it happen.
Whether you want an intimate
wedding at sunset, with just the
two of you, or a larger affair
with all your friends and family,
Beach Weddings 4 You knows
what to do to make your day
special and perfect.
The packages start at $650,
and they all include an officiant,
marriage license, flowers, and
photos. The officiants work with
you to create a custom ceremony
that reflects what's in your
hearts, and Karen is a master at
creating tropical bouquets that do
the same.

Gabber April 29 May 5, 2010


Karen is your personal florist and has flowers for all occasions
- Call her today to send your mother a lovely bouquet of flowers
on Mother's Day on May 9.


If your dream wedding includes
a ceremony on the beach, Beach
Weddings 4 You is the place to
go. Karen, who worked most
recently at Lou's on St. Pete
Beach, has designed flowers for
all kinds of events. She realized
long ago that flowers played a
big part in a couple's special
day, and when she struck out on
her own she knew she wanted
to offer full-service wedding
planning services to help make
a couple's entire wedding day
as special as the flowers she
designed for the day.
She handpicked her officiants
and photographer, and they work
as a team on every wedding they
create. Just as no two couples are
alike, no two weddings should
be, either, so while Karen has
different packages for people to
choose from while planning their
special day, Beach Weddings 4
You also has an "A La Carte"
menu that allows each couple to


create just the right celebration.
Some of the more unique
services Beach Weddings 4
You provides include a heart of
roses wedding altar in the sand
filled with rose petals, a sand
unity ceremony, and a blessing
sea shells ceremony. Beach
Weddings 4 You also offers
commitment ceremonies.
So if you're ready to get
married and want your day to be
magnificent, call Karen today
and set up an appointment to
plan your wedding. She loves
weddings and is happy to be a
part of yours.

his missing equipment.
By Leigh Clifton
A few weeks ago I wrote about a
Bogie baseball player, Ben Cope, who
lost a bag of equipment from the back
of his truck. In that bag were gloves,
his new catcher's protective gear, some
custom cleats and some very expensive
bats that he had worked very hard to
pay for as well as a few other items.
It was the hope that whoever picked
up that well-marked bag of baseball
stuff by the side of the road on Central
Avenue would read the article, see
that it obviously belonged to a Bogie
ball player and return it. All would
be right with the world. However, the
person never showed up and Ben was
left to wear his old catcher's gear.
Enter Bobbie Bernstein, a retired
Madeira Beach Middle School physical
education teacher of 29 years.
Ms. Bobby is in terrific shape and is a
fireball of energy. She plays pickleball
and tennis, is a member of the Women's
Chamber of Commerce for the Greater
Gulf Beaches and has so many
meetings that she only saw the article
in the Gabber almost two weeks after it
appeared.
"I only read the full article a few


days ago," she said when we spoke two
weeks ago. "I have been so busy; at first
I didn't really read the whole thing, so
I was under the impression that the
entire team had lost the equipment. I
decided right then that I wanted to
help. Later when I realized it was just
this young man who had lost his bag, I
wanted to meet him in person. After I
met him, I knew it was the right thing
to do."
Bobbie's son and daughter-in-law both
went to Bogie, so she has personal and
emotional connections to the school.
"At first, I called the Gabber, and
then I called the school and talked to
Principal Nelson, who told me a little
bit about Ben. My whole family has
always been involved in sports, so it
seemed like a perfect fit. I went over to
the school to meet him."
Principal Nelson called Lisa, Ben's
mother, at work and told her the
awesome news. Lisa then called Ben's
dad Ken, at work. Ken immediately
thought Ben was in trouble.
"I was like, oh no, what happened..."
Ken Cope laughed. "They never call me
at work unless it's really important."
Ken knew how much it hurt Ben to lose


his baseball gear.
"It had taken Ben so long to get his
bag right and losing his stuff was really
devastating to him. He had already
donated his old catcher's gear to the
team so the younger guys could use it.
The day after he lost his bag, he had to
wear his old stuff. We went to Play it
Again Sports to get a used bat, a new
glove and some cleats so he could play
his game. The guys there gave us a
discount when they heard the story."
Principal Nelson and Athletic Director
Heather Holloway met Bobbie in the
principal's office and then called Ben
to the office, pulling him out of his last
class. He was pretty confused when he
walked in.
"I didn't know what was going on,"
he said. "There was this lady who I
didn't know and she was smiling and
really nice. My Mom was on the phone
with the Principal. Then she told me
who she was and that she wanted to
help me replace my equipment. It was
incredible," Ben said, with awe in his
voice.
Ms. Bobbie presented Ben with $1000
check to replace his lost gear.
"It was so emotional," Bobbie said,
with a tear in her eye. "We all cried
and I couldn't even look at him for a
minute. Here was this great kid, a good
kid that was really nice, a good kid that
needed the help. It was a wonderful
thing to see his reaction and to know
how grateful he was."
Lisa and Ken Cope finally met Ms.
Bobbie at Ben's game against Northeast
two weeks ago. Bobbie was in the
stands to watch. They were introduced
and there were hugs all around and
picture-taking. Lisa and Bobbie went
up into the stands, gabbing away old
friends. Ken stayed down by the dugout
to cheer his son. He had tears in his
eyes at a stranger's generosity for his
son.
"It's amazing to think that there are
people out there like her," he said. "Just
amazing...
Lisa was carrying a brown bag; in it
was a small gift for Bobbie, a thank you
for her wonderful generosity. It was an
angel...
"I saw it and thought of her," Lisa
said.
So on a warm spring night, with
the sounds of high school baseball
resonating over the field, Bogie actually
had two angels in the stands that
afternoon...

The Pinellas "Fred Marquis" Trail: Traveling the County


By Cathy Salustri

ATTJ A .The Orange
VV '-lA .Belt Railroad
arrived in Tarpon Springs on Janu-
ary 13, 1888. By May the railroad
stretched into St. Petersburg along
the west end of Pinellas. The railway
carried oranges and veterans and
went by a myriad of names, includ-
ing the Plant System Railroad and
the Seaboard Coast Line Railroad.
92 years and one day after the
railroad reached St. Petersburg, a
lit cigarette ignited the creosote on
a trestle in Bay Pines, taking out a
bridge on the railway. The railroad
closed the section forever.
In time, Pinellas County acquired
sections of the old railroad. Under
the guidance of county administra-
tor Fred Marquis, Pinellas county
converted the railway into the Pinel-
las Trail. The first section of the trail
opened in 1990, and today the ren-
maed "Fred Marquis" Pinellas Trail
stretches the length of the county.

W H-YV ',The trail is a "lin-
W H....ear" park and part
of a country-wide "rails to trails" ef-
fort that replaced abandoned rail-
ways with trails. These parks allow
cyclists, walkers, runners, and skat-
ers a pastoral respite.
Biking the entire length of the trail
may seem daunting at first, but any
reasonably fit person can do it. Gulf-
port has a spur that joins the trail by
Boca Ciega High School, and


beach residents can pedal to the Pas-
adena overpass and catch the trail
there. There's plenty to see and no
reason to rush.
After a series of bridges, riding
over the long stretch of water by Bay
Pines comes as a welcome break.
Dunedin, a great stopping point for
lunch, has a quaint downtown with a
cozy collections of shops, cafes, and a
brewery. Pedal on to Ozona and the
quiet and trees make you feel like
you're the only one in the world (or,
at least, on the trail). Palm Harbor
has Wall Springs Park and the back
side of the Suncoast Primary Sanctu-
ary (formerly Noell's Chimp Farm).
By the time you cross into Tarpon
Springs (so noted by the railroad-
inspired artwork signalling each city
as you pass through), you're ready
for a break-- enjoy the downtown,
head to the sponge docks, or just take
a break on a bench before catching a
bus home or turning around and do-
ing it all in reverse.
At the trail's end, PSTA buses pick
up regularly and allow both bikes and
small, contained pets, so put your
bike on the front of the bus and carry
a collapsible softside pet carrier for
the air conditioned ride home.
Expect the ride to take you at least
four hours. Bring a water bottle,
snacks, a hat and sunscreen.

Pinellas County
W I *:Parks has bicycle
rangers, but like most of the coun-
ty's popular parks, the Trail gets
help from a citizen's group. Pinellas
Trails, Inc., pays for the benches,


trash cans, mile markers, maps, bike
racks, and a plethora of other ameni-
ties along the 34-mile (soon to be 47)
stretch of trail.

XTTt-'NrT.Open from 7
HVV oI.LIJ .until sunset.

lr,.The trail
WH ERE runs north
to south across Pinellas County,
from south St. Petersburg to Tarpon
Springs with spurs and parks along
the way, including Trail Head Park
at the southern end and Wall Springs
at the north end.

parts: Even lifelong
k.J. residents enjoy new
vistas as they pedal through corners
of the county they never get to see
otherwise, like the back side of a pri-
mate sanctuary or the underside of
US Highway 19.
Most places along the trail welcome
dogs, so if you're so inclined, put your
pup in your bike basket.

WO STpart: The
W OR trail has nine
overpasses, or bridges, that allow
riders to avoid potentially unsafe in-
tersections. After climbing the fourth
one, you'll understand why this is the
worst part.

lasTrails.org and PinellasCounty.

PRAYER TO THE BLESSED VIRGIN (Never
Known to Fail) Oh, most beautiful flower
of Mount Carmel, fruitful vine, splendor of
heaven. Blessed Mother of the Son of God,
Immaculate Virgin, assist me in my necessity.
Oh, star of the sea, help me & show me here
you are my mother. Oh Holy Mary, Mother of
God, Queen of Heaven and Earth, I humbly
beseech you from the bottom of my heart to
succor me in my necessity (make request).
There are none that can withstand your pow-
er. Oh Mary, conceived without sin, pray for
us who have recourse to thee. (3) times. Holy
Mother, I place this prayer in your hands. (3)
times.
Say this prayer for 3 consecutive days and
then you must publish it and it will be granted
to you. E.T.

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.

NEVER FAILING PRAYER TO ST. MICHAEL
- 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
the Church to Help Another Soul in Distress
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.
