A Lasting Resolution


Photo by Cathy Salustri
Every morning for the past 20 years Sandy Springer and
her dog leave her Blind Pass home and go for a walk. Some
mornings she walks as far south as the Don CeSar, but on
others she heads north through Treasure Island, occasionally
detouring through Sunset Beach.
"People are like, 'I see you everywhere!'," she laughs as her
Italian Greyhound, Dolce, prances at her feet. She said the
walks seemed a logical solution to staying in shape. "Going
to gyms just bores me. I've always had a dog, and the dog
needed to be walked and I needed to be exercised."
Before she had the tiny Italian Greyhound, she had a full-
size greyhound. When she first got Dolce, she said people look
puzzled at the him.

Gulfport Ballot
Order Determined
Using a snazzy green ice bucket and two like-sized
business cards, Gulfport city clerk Lesley DeMuth drew
names to determine which Ward Two candidate's name
would appear first on the March ballot.
Avrio Taylor's name will appear first; Mr. Taylor was
not at the Tuesday night council meeting.
Grant Money For Clam Bayou
Gulfport- The Tampa Bay Estuary program will give
Gulfport almost $5,000 as a mini-grant; the city will
use this money to plant slash pines, sabal palms and
fire bushes in the northeast portion of Clam Bayou. The
plantings will cover a 100-foot-square area.


Green Building in
Gulfport
City council approved Ordinance
2010-19, which established a green
building ordinance.This ordinance
sets standards and outlines
permitting for a green building
ordinance.
"The Green Building Ordinance...
formalizes and strengthens the city's
commitment to promoting, adapting
and utilizing 'green' practices," City
manager Jim O'Reilly said in a memo
to council.
This ordinance means, among other
things, that the city must reduce
its energy use by 20% by 2018 and
water use by 10% by the same year.
The ordinance also establishes green
building standards for residential,
commercial and institutional
buildings.

Beach Moved
Gulfport city council agreed to move
the starting point of Gulfport beach.
City manager Jim O'Reilly explained
the proposed change, telling council
that the boundaries of the beach,
established in 1965, have changed.
The beach boundary will move 250
feet east of the existing boundary,
making it fall in line with the sea
wall by the Gulfport Recreation
Center.

Gulfport Endorses
Changes to Plan
The Florida legislature may
merge the Metropolitan Planning
Organization (MPO) and the Pinellas
Planning Council. If this happens, the
MPO will add seats, and Gulfport will
share a seat with Belleair, Belleair
Bluffs, Kenneth CIty, Seminole, and
South Pasadena. Currently Gulfport
does not have a seat on the board-
the Pinellas County Board of County
Commissioners represents Gulfport
and 15 other cities.

Gulfport Community Players


The funniest farce ever. A play within a play. It lampoons the common problems that
occur during the rehearsal process, and a performance where everything goes wrong.
A bawdy comedy in which women run about in their undies, old men drop their
pants, doors continually open and shut, and sardines keep getting lost.

outreach forum on bankruptcy to
educate and advise the public about
bankruptcy. This event will take
place at the Enoch Davis Recreation
Center, 1111 18 Avenue S. in St.
Petersburg at 4:30 p.m.
The threat of bankruptcy and great
financial loss is affecting a growing
number of low-income families and
individuals in Tampa Bay. Due to
this area being second in the nation
for bankruptcy filings, CLP has
coordinated a team of volunteer
attorneys to alert and educate the
general public on their bankruptcy
options.
Local attorneys Traci K. Stevenson
and Ted Starr will be presenting
important bankruptcy topics
including the differences between
Chapter 7 and 13. During this event,
individuals will have the opportunity
to have their bankruptcy questions
answered in private by one of a panel
of volunteer bankruptcy attorneys.
The public needs to know and/or
bring with them the following:
1. Copy of any lawsuit/court papers
recently received;
2. Documentation of income
received during the past few months
including the income of a spouse;
3. Knowledge of all debt currently
owed including credit cards, medical
bills, car loans, and the total owed
for each; and
4. Knowledge of whether income
taxes are owed and whether tax
returns have been filed.

Kimberly Rodgers, Executive
Director of CLP, at 727-582-7480 or

Get Rescued Seeks
Supporters
Gulfport's Get Rescued, the animal
rescue festival and fundraiser, is
preparing for its seventh annual
event to take place on Saturday,
February 26 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Animal rescue organizations, many
appearing with adoptable pets, take
over Beach Blvd. to raise money
and awareness for their causes.
Additionally, animal-relatedvendors,
artists and crafters offer their wares
to festival-goers.
Each year, hundreds of attendees,
many accompanied by their own
canine companions, make their way
to Gulfport to participate in what
has become a beloved tradition. Pet
related activities include agility
contests, a pet and their people dance
contest, training demos and more.
Participants are encouraged to
bring donations of dog and cat food
and cat litter to be distributed to
the rescues. This popular event has
evolved from one block and a handful
of animal rescue groups in its first
year to a popular and beloved event
representing over 60 animal rescue
groups from throughout the region. It
is one of the largest such events in the
nation. All proceeds from vendor fees
and sponsors benefit participating
non-profit rescue groups.
One component which continues this
year is a Get Rescued Celebration held
later in the evening after the daytime
event. This year, the celebration will
be held at the Gulfport Casino from
7 to 11 p.m. Festivities will include
music and dancing, cash bar, hors
d'oeuvres, opportunity drawings and
silent auctions.
Supporters can become involved
in Get Rescued by sponsoring an
individual animal rescue group for
$50, which will include a prominent
sign at that group's Beach Blvd.
booth. Additionally, donations of
merchandise or gift certificates for
the silent auction and drawings will
be appreciated. The daytime event is
free for the public to attend.

Letters
For the Humane
Treatment of Animals
Dear Editor: Re: Cathy Salustri:
First I wish to tell how much I enjoy
your columns. You have been an in-
telligent, worthy addition to the Gab-
ber. I don't always agree or relate to
everything you write, but you write
well, share lively stories, honest the-
ater critics, speak your mind, all of
which is good. You have your heart
in the right place and I know some-
times you are careful to keep from
offending individuals and the com-
munity.
The story of the rat in the first part
of your Christmas story left me feel-
ing uncomfortable. I am not a rat fa-
natic and if our cat wants to go after
one, I am OK with that. But, while
Leo, our cat, is a member of our fam-
ily, he is also a cat, and that is what
cats do.
On the other hand, humans should
treat all animals humanely, even a
terrified rat who arrived in your toilet

by accident. There should be a ban on
all rat poisons because they kill rats
after days of intense suffering, and
they often kill cats and other animals
inadvertently. Traps are cruel too for
the same reason. Perhaps, I can see
that in situations where rats are tak-
ing over, like in crowded city dwell-
ings, getting rid of rats becomes an
issue of human survival. Otherwise,
I prefer humane removal.
I have started a website a few
months ago called People for Ethical
Living and your article about Hands
across the Sands inspired me to write
my first post, about Oil Addiction.
I suspect that you will not agree with
everything I write either, but gener-
ally I like to witness compassion for
animals in all circumstances.

The Gab an wil yumkonthsea.?
ByLigClfo


Carol Richters, visiting from Connecticut: "I don't always start the New Year with
a resolution, although there are some years that I have. Mainly my biggest resolution
was to take better care of myself; exercise, eat right, have more leisure time to myself.
When I was younger, I would start out strong, following my resolution but I would be
dismantled by work, children and keeping a house and had no time for myself. Now
that I'm older, I have actually been good about exercising and taking care of myself. I
think this year I should make the resolution to buy a shiny new convertible!"





Cheryl Berthiaume, Kenneth City: "I don't make them anymore because I've
learned that I never keep them. When I was young I used to make resolutions every
New Year's and most times I would follow them for a while. But most of the time I never
followed through with them. I know there are things I shouldn't be doing like drinking
way too much soda, but at least I don't smoke. It that respect I have no bad habits that
I would have to give up. I just don't have good willpower. I guess I could admit that I
have downfalls but I'm just not good at it. For example, I drink a LOT of Coke; I keep
it stored in my house at all times. I also eat a lot of pizza, but those are two things I
could never give up, even though the sodas are definitely not good for you.




Helen B. Love, visiting from Detroit: i Iy New Year's resolution is to return to
Gulfport, settle here and open a small business on Beach Blvd. I love it here and have
visited my brother and sister-in-law several times now. I really like the feel of the city,
especially the Blvd, where all of the quaint shops and restaurants are. I have a huge
collection of hearts and love memorabilia; decorative objects that could hang on the
walls of any shop, like a beauty salon, and ice cream shop, stationary store, coffee shop
or tea room. I want to downsize my collection and thought if I could find a partner here
in Gulfport; I could place my collection in a local business. I could provide the decor
on their walls or in their shop. I was at the Tuesday Morning Market this morning,
talking to some shop owners and vendors to get some ideas. I'm not ready to move here
quite yet, but I know that's' what I want to do. I want to make it happen. That's my
resolution; to return to Gulfport and have a business here. I just love it here."





Rolf Burer, Gulfport: "I'm not making a resolution at New Year's; I already made
one to myself in November and that was to quit smoking cigarettes. I stopped then and
haven't smoked since. I don't need the beginning of a new year to make resolutions."

Seabird Sanctuary
Needs Your Help
INDIAN SHORES- The Suncoast
Seabird Sanctuary is experiencing a
high volume of birds of prey rescue
calls due to the extreme high winds
and cold and needs the public's help
to save the birds.
Eastern screech owls are especially
vulnerable to the cold, and last
year the sanctuary rescued many
during and after the record-breaking
cold freeze. A high percentage that
arrived at the sanctuary during the
cold freeze last year didn't survive
due too much cold exposure or
malnutrition.
The owls are very important birds to
the area as they help keep the rodent
and insect population, especially
roaches, down to a minimum.
The sanctuary is asking for the
public to help its rescue operation by
checking the grounds around their
homes or businesses for injured or
frostbit birds, especially the owls.
Please wear gloves when picking
the bird up, put the bird in a box,
provide air holes and keep it warm.
It is extremely important to bring the
bird immediately to the sanctuary or
call the rescue hotline at 727-391-
6211 to see if a volunteer rescuer is
available.

And the Winner of the HD TV is...

The City of Gulfport Recreation
Division would like to thank
everyone who purchased tickets
for Team Gulfport's T.V. raffle
to help raise money for Relay for
Life. We did not reach our goal
of $700, but we were still able to
raise $585 for the cause.
The children at the Recreation
Center had a trivia contest to
see who would get a chance to
pull the winning ticket. Nick,
a 4th grader, won and eagerly
reached into the bucket and
pulled out the ticket belonging
to Justin Shea, a Recreation
Leader for Gulfport Recreation.
Justin was very excited when
he heard he had won. He is
donating the T.V. to Vincent
House in which he volunteers
his time and talents. The purpose of Vincent House is to assist, promote and
celebrate individuals recovering from mental illnesses in their effort to improve
social and vocational skills and become employed in the community.
The American Cancer Society Relay for Life weekend event will be held at the
Gulfport Recreation Field on April 8 9, 2011. For more information on getting

ItStoroscoDe Guide


By Holiday Mathis
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19).
The atoms that make up our cells
are mostly space; therefore, we are
mostly space. The same goes for
all the other bits of matter on this
planet and beyond. Echo this theme
of space in your home environment
by reducing the number of personal
possessions you keep. Paradoxically,
spaciousness brings fulfillment.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You'll
experience a situation in which many
people are seeing the same thing but
no one dares to point it out. There's
a good reason for this: It would be
insensitive or even dangerous to
point to the proverbial "elephant in
the room." You will find answers and
solace by expressing your insights in
a journal.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). This
week you will be acutely aware of the
vast sea of information in the world
and also of how you couldn't possibly
absorb it all in one lifetime. Luckily,
the things you really need to know
about have a certain irresistible
appeal. You can't help but be drawn
in, and the study is effortless.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). You're
in a mirthful, chatty mood for most
of the week, and you will spread
fun wherever you go. The world is
responsive to your attention, and it
seems that everyone wants to play
along. You'll be offered more choices
than you had last year -- so many
more, in fact, that it will be difficult
for you to decide what to do next.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You
are daring enough to take on the big
jobs in the new year. One thing that
gives you courage is knowing that
the big jobs are really just a well-
planned series of small jobs. You keep
breaking it down until the work is
manageable and easy. By the end of
the week, you'll have a huge feeling
of accomplishment.


GEMINI (I .iy 21-June 21). You'll
double your effectiveness this week
by applying the 80/20 rule: Certain
actions produce 80 percent of the
results you're after, and they only
take 20 percent of your time. Know
which actions those are, and execute
them. Avoid getting caught up in
time-consuming activities that don't
contribute to the bottom line.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). There
is something going on in the periphery
of your life that keeps drawing
your mind away from what's going
on around you. In order for you to
completely invest your thoughts and
energy in the task at hand, you must
first resolve the issue that is stealing
so much of your focus. Thursday
brings a breakthrough.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). It's been
said that how a person does anything
is how that person does everything.
Pay attention to the signals someone
is sending as they execute tasks as
simple as taking a phone call, lining
up to buy groceries or eating a meal.
Your observationswill add up to a deep
knowledge of this person's character.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). One
approach is to go forward, even when
everything around you seems to be
pulling you back. Another approach
is to flow with the tides, keeping your
intention intact as you wait for the
right opportunity. Both ways have
their merits. You will do what feels
most comfortable to you.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You have
earned the loyalty and trust of your
friends and will continue to do so
because you do what you say you're
going to do. To you, it's all so simple:
You keep your word, honor your plans
and show up on time. It's surprising
how many people have trouble in this
area. You will teach through your
example.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Time
traveling games give you perspective


on problems. What would your scene
look like if you looked back on it from
100 years from now? What would it
look like if you could go back in time
100 years and peek into the future at
your life? You're creative, and you'll
come up with brilliant answers.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21).
You show up on time and complete
your business on schedule and on
budget. Your mind, body and emotions
are in balance no matter what else is
going on around you. You're like an
ultra-productive machine that is,
until Thursday, when you'll be wild,
unpredictable and a whole lot of fun.
This Week's Birthdays: You'll
clarify your goals this year, and the
process empowers you. There's a
financial bonus this month. You'll
have luck applying for a new position
in February. You share your thoughts,
feelings and creative impulses with
a special person in March. Between
June and August, you will alternate
between vigorous discipline and
relaxed leisure. You'll bond with
loved ones during an exciting road
trip. New energies will be liberated
through the personal work you do in
August.

Save Our Strays is a no-kill non-
profit organization dedicated to
rehoming abandoned cats and kittens.
It does not maintain a shelter facility
and is in serious need of additional
foster homes for its felines. They
are currently not able to accept new
felines because they have no available
foster homes for them. Volunteers
serving as foster families can specify

You & THE


LAW

By Robert J. Myers, Esq.

How is Your Legal
Health? ((Part III)
MARITAL STATUS
During your legal checkup, a review
of your marital status may uncover
certain aspects of the marriage


which you may wish to address.
For example, couples may desire to
enter into prenuptial agreements or
separation agreements to help avoid
disputes in the event of a divorce.
Prenuptial agreements or
separation agreements can address
property rights, child support, child
custody and visitation rights you
may have regarding your children.
These agreements can be finalized
before or during your marriage.
Unmarried couples who are living
together may desire to enter into
an agreement to specify expected
rights and responsibilities which
are similar to a prenuptial or

separation agreement. Prenuptial
and separation agreements can
additionally specify how to value
assets which were jointly obtained
such as a home, retirement plans
and investments.
ACCIDENTAL INJURIES
Accidents can occur in your
automobile, at home or at your
workplace. As a result, you may
be entitled to compensation from
someone who caused or contributed
to your injury. Compensation for
personal injuries may include lost
income, reimbursement of medical
expenses, money for disabilities as
a result of the accident and pain
and suffering which you endured
during a recovery period. Many
times, compensation is paid through
an insurance company which has
coverage for those who contributed to
your accidental injury.
EMPLOYMENT
Legal problems may arise in the
workplace. Federal laws protect
employees against discrimination
by employers. However, there are
specific procedures which must be
followed and time restrictions on the
filing of a claim or lawsuit.
PURCHASE OR SALE
OF A HOME
The purchase or sale of a home
probably is one of the largest
investment decisions you will make
in your lifetime. As a result, it is
important to avoid unfavorable
contract provisions in your sales
agreement. Also, the real estate
agent's listing contract should
be carefully reviewed so that you
understand what your rights and
obligations are under the agreement.
If you are buying or selling a home,
a review of all documents by an
attorney may save you time, money
and aggravation so that your
interests are protected and the sale
can be completed.

Gays in the Military
If "don't ask, don't tell" (relating to
gays) is an unfair policy in the U.S.
military there's an instant remedy.
The commander-in-chief, president
Barack Obama could order it
rescinded.
There's a precedent. President Harry
S. Truman in 1948, by executive
order, ended segregation of blacks and
whites in the military. The situation
was nearly the same. Negroes, as
blacks, African-Americans, were
referred to then, were already serving
in the military.
I wrote those two paragraphs two
days before congress voted to end
the DADT policy. So, Obama, as he

preferred, has only to sign congress'
bill to initiate the policy. That's OK.
It's a good change that was going to
come sooner or later just as it did for
African-Americans.
For them, unlike gays, there
was no hiding. Skin color was the
distinguishing mark. And, the troops
were actually separated. In fact,
many reported that German prisoners
of war got more respect than those
designated as U.S. Negro soldiers.
When the edict came down, there
were concerns similar to what one
hears today. "What, you mean I have
to bunk with them? You mean I have
to eat with them? You mean I have to
trust them to cover my back? How do
I relate to them? How can we have a

cohesive unit if we have to associate
with them?" The crisis and needs of
the Korean War changed that. There
was no choice.
The biggest difference today is that
gays are already in the military
and are already eating, bunking,
marching, fighting along side others in
the military. There is no requirement
that a person "outs" himself (or
herself), but if it does occur, it does
not mean dismissal.
And, the really big difference is
that gays are already well integrated
into the straight society. Yes, I
realize that there are still problems.
However, there is no segregation or
official discrimination in employment
or in schools. In colleges, gays already
eat, sleep, and otherwise co-habit
with other students. There is no pre-
screening for roommates.
There is no guarantee that the new
policy will be accepted peacefully
by all. Human nature being what
it is it probably will not. Ask blacks
who served in the 1950s. Conduct or
general behavior (on all sides) is most
likely to be the issue.
The only personal case I can relate
is that of one of my step-sons in the
first Gulf War in 1991. He served in
an armored reconnaissance vehicle
built for tightly accommodating three
people.
One of those three was openly gay,
and, was on the way to being let go
when the war came. The cynical view
is that it was easier to send him to the
front than out the door. Hey, maybe
he'd get killed. It would have saved
a lot of paperwork. Indeed, theirs
was the seventh vehicle into Iraq on
a chase for the Red Guard. All three
survived.
The problem wasn't that he was
gay, but that he was in-your-face
annoyingly confrontational gay. In
short, he was a jerk who caused
trouble. And, yes, it can go the other
way, too. Tight living quarters aren't
always conducive to getting along.
Time will be the final factor. In the
meantime, it's a good decision.

The Men: A Promising Start


The Men, adapted from the 1939 film The Women, spurred laughter
and debate during and after the show Sunday night.


By Cathy Salustri
The 'l udi... _;:"i opened
its first-ever theatre season
with The Men, Christian
Couture's adaptation of
the 1939 film, The Women.
Directed by Bob Devin-
Jones, this two-hour show
impresses on every level.
Couture's adaptation
deals with a group of gay
men struggling with their
relationships and, although
that over-simplification
of the show may sound
like a garden variety play,
this show is anything but.
Throughout the show,
Couture attempts to remain


true to the spirit of the film
(which actually adapted
an earlier play) and the
men's struggles strike a
familiar chord with anyone
who has struggled with
the imperfections in any
committed relationship, be
it gay or straight.
The cast features old
standbys like Jorge Acosta
and Daniel Harris as well
as lessor-known players
such as Andy Orrell and
Jonathan Irion, and while
each actor has a different
level of skill and talent,
Devin-Jones does a superb
job of melding them into
a fugue. Performers Greg


Milton (Bernie, George)
and lead Stephen Riordan
(Marty) set themselves
apart with their inspired,
empathetic performances,
while Andy Orrell turns in
a lovably, nerdy Eddy.
While this critic loved the
show and found it eminently
believable, her theatre
companion, who is himself
gay, did not at all care for
the show, saying it was
too over-the-top and not at
all believable. He enjoyed
the acting but said that,
as a gay man, the dialogue
did not ring true for him
and the writing suffered
as a result. However, this
reviewer considers the show
one of the most worthwhile
pieces of theatre produced
in the area this year, and
the intermission discussions
overheard indicates that
the piece spurred more than
one discussion about the
differences and similarities
between gay relationships
and straight relationships.
It depicts romantic struggles
that transcend sexual
orientation, and shows both
orientations the common
ground between the two
lifestyles.
The space at the 'l ud i..._ -"i
is not well-suited to theatre,
but lighting designer Joe


Oshry, best known for his
work at the Straz Center,
succeeds in creating
subtle and not-so-subtle
effects. And, despite the
small space, Jamie Howell
designed one of the best
sets to grace a Tampa Bay
area stage in the recent
memory. In all, this show
offers heavy promise for
the rest of the lI udit] .. i ;"'1
inaugural Golden Ticket
theatre season.
A word to the audience
about the seating don't sit
directly behind the cabaret-
style seating; you will not be
able to see past the patrons
at the tables. Also, this show
features full-frontal male
nudity on two occasions,
which is most clearly
obvious from the right side
of the seating area.
The Men runs Wednesday
through Sunday and
closes January 9. Cabaret
seating costs $30; general
admission costs $25.
Students and seniors, $20.
New Year's Eve Gala show,
$75. Purchase tickets online
