GratefullyMichael J. Audino Go Slow with Code Enforcement Dear Editor : Gulfport should go slow on code enforcement. Gulfport has been a laid back city and should stay that way! What people keep in their backyard is their business. I was born in St. Pete and raised there, my wife was raised in Gulfport. We own the house I grew up in in St. Pete and the house my wife grew up in in Gulfport. St. Pete can be a pain in the neck with code enforcement, complaining about grass too high, a little bit of peeling paint, etc. I would hate to see Gulfport go the way of St. Pete. Jim and Barbara Wright No mention of a Sign Dear Editor : Last evening, Ms. Rosso, Chairperson of the WRAB, stated that the Boards agendas are posted prior to meetings and inferred that the public had been made aware of impending discussions relative to the Boards desire to put a new sign in Clymer Park.

After the meeting, I reviewed the on-line posted agendas as well as the is no indication in any of the agendas that there was to be a discussion is nothing in any of the meeting minutes, until March indicating about a sign for Clymer Park. All references were to the waterfront area, Beach Drive and the entryway. about requests going out to artists. last summer, it should be done but contest that was advertised was for a name and a logo for the waterfront for Clymer Park.

I spoke with a woman recently who said her dog is angry. How do you know hes angry, I asked. He growls and barks at other people and dogs, she said. Sounds aggressive to me. No, she said. Hes angry. What does aggression look like? It looks like anger. It looks like Cujo. It looks like bared teeth and frothing at the mouth. But it also looks like tension -straight tail, ears up, wide eyes, a stiffening of the body and face, a gradual lifting of the snout in response to direct eye contact. What does aggression sound like? It sounds like growling -anything from a low rumble to a threatening, lip-curling snarl. Barking can be a sign of aggression, too, although dogs use their bark to communicate in ways that have nothing to do with aggression. However, barking in tandem with any of the above is safe reader demonstrates the signs and progression of aggression left unchecked: We have a serious issue with our sweet girl, Suki. She shows severe fear aggression with certain people. It used to be a little low growl, which progressed to lunging with some backtracking. Now it is full-on, in-your-face snarling, barking and even jumping on or at certain people if we dont grab her in time. Suki does very well on walks, walking right by people and dogs, often looking at them but quickly ignoring them. Its only if they approach, stop and stare directly at her that she gets stressed out. She also frequently startles on walks and is often looking behind her even if no one is there. It is to the point that even my brother and father dont want us to bring her because she does this to them whenever they stand up or with them if they are seated and will even approach them, lick them and let them pet and play with her. But the second they stand up, she is in their face snarling and growling and not letting them go anywhere. Please help! about dog aggression is dont put a euphemism on it. Dont call it anger. Dont call it moodiness. Dont call it unpredictability. Call it what it is, and get professional help. Dogs dont grow out of aggression; they grow the rule. I believe theres a solution to most problems, including dog aggression. My philosophy has always been: Dont get rid of the dog; get rid of the problem. But dont just dress up your big bad wolf in grandmas clothing.

Gabber July 21 July 27, 2011 35 Excerpts heard at the July 19, 2011 Gulfport City Council Meeting Public Comment & Council Quotes I was a little suspect of him... but while other folks would like to see me planted, he has resurrected me, Al Davis, about vice-mayor David Hastings. Mr. Davis praised the vice-mayor for his efforts with oral cancer screenings. Mr. Davis said he was recently diagnosed with throat cancer. I offer no excuses and Ill place no blame, but what we saw was unacceptable for the city, Doug Hudson, about the status of litter on the beach. Mr. Hudson also announced the formation of a group called Gulfport Neighbors (see related article.) One pound of worms eats seven pounds of kitchen scraps, Crea Romanelli, about composting. She also asked the city to make the change to 100% post-consumer waste paper. I didnt want to be the one to say the emperor wasnt wearing clothes. I took pictures of my neighborhood because people obviously havent been around my block, Janet Schaefer, who says that she came to the last meeting and listened to people talk about the Fourth of July celebration. Ms. Schaefer said that she was disgusted with the citys response to litter and debris in Gulfport but the recent formation of Gulfport Neighbors gave her hope. He not only takes the health of the public to heart, but because he has personally saved the lives [of many], Lee Stapella, who asked the mayor to honor vice-mayor David Hastings with a proclamation because of his efforts. In my house, its always Ask the clerk, City manager Jim OReilly, about keeping dates straight. We hoped for input over a year ago, Lori Rosso, Waterfront Redevelopment Advisory Board (WRAB) president, about the artist input and those present at the meeting. She said the city received 15 submissions. I honestly dont remember the contest for a sign. I remember I submitted something and I thought it was for a logo... I do think this should be a joint effort with our artist community and our business community, Districts proposed signage. It looks like were selling used cars or maybe theres a carnival at the middle school this weekend, Bill over Gulfport Boulevard. We begged the artist community, and theyre disappearing or something, the limited artist response to the WRABs request for artist renderings of a waterfront district sign. Were all volunteer... Were not conspiratorial... I saw that in the Gabber, and I found it pretty offensive, Mike Baggs, a member of the WRAB. I am 100,000% any attempt to move that tree. Im not going to vote to move that tree or to kill that tree, Vice Mayor David Hastings, about the oak tree impeding the view of the current sign and the proposed sign for the waterfront area. Both councilwoman Jennifer Salmon and councilman Sam Henderson said they would not take issue with moving the tree. Thats only a small piece of Gulfport, Vice Mayor David Hastings, who said the city has other areas in addition to the waterfront district. Jim, you earned your money tonight. Probably when were done someone will say, thats a great idea; lets put it on a workshop, Mayor Mike Yakes, about the debate centering around a call for artists to design a new Waterfront District sign. This is really a shame, printing one sided, Councilwoman Jennifer Salmon, about the city agendas. She said this after councilman Sam Henderson asked the city to price paper made with 100% post-consumer waste. To me, thats a cigarette butt going out the window, too. As an off and on smoker, I still dont do that, Councilman Sam Henderson, who said that he wanted the city to look and see if it could raise the I would request that the city manager exert his effort on his staff to pick up the beach this week, because when I get there I really dont want to have to do anything, Vice-mayor David Hastings, about the upcoming beach cleanup. He also suggested that perhaps we need to post no smoking signs on the beach altogether, which met with applause from the audience. What are we doing next, leaving? Mayor Mike Yakes, just before the council reports and after an almost three hour meeting.

Politicians might resolve something about something, but it appears that, in reality, nothing is being resolved. So, just resolve it. Gitter done. Or maybe not. anyway. We the federal government have already spent more money than we have on hand and we need a loan to pay the bills. Its that simple. However, its also simple that we need to stop the spending. From a personal perspective, if you were in friend ) might give you a loan, but not unless you showed some indication that you would bring your spending under control. sought to use the debt limit to force spending cuts. Democrats arent buying it and if they do they want that those two categories refer to an individual making $200,000 or a the millionaires and billionaires were thinking about. certain industries, that creates more of the same problems that helped And, as for the millionaires and billionaires were talking about, we could take all of their money and not bail ourselves out. Right now, 10 per cent of the highest earners pay 55 cent dont pay anything. We need structural changes whether done easily or lightly. Someone, or maybe everyone, gets dinged Republicans are pushing for a balanced budget amendment. It wont get done overnight even if everyone endorsed it. It requires states. However, if it did pass it would force structural changes. Need on what might be or what might happen gets less easy. Want a war? way for it. Want to borrow money? Fine, provide the income to pay the principal and interest. So, just raising the debt limit isnt the issue. Were now at $14,000,000,000,000 (thats trillion, so you dont have to count the zeros) and are headed now to have enough debt to equal the total output of our that proportion and maybe go to 125 per cent of GDP. Kind of like Greece and Italy. Doesnt sound good, particularly since some people think our debt is really $100 trillion. How much money is $14 trillion? If you lived 76 years and doled out just over 500,000 one-thousand dollar bills a day throughout your life, you could pay off the debt we have today. Weve been going down this road for a long time. Democrats all (including Obama who made a big deal of it then) opposed raising the limit in 2006. All Republicans supported it. I guess they were both wrong based on now is that were going down the road faster and faster and politicians are hoping to spend faster and faster with no limits.

Habits are what personal character is made of, and basically they come in just two varieties: good and bad. Some people act as if their habits were issued at birth and are not a select few, however, who know and live by the truth: It is possible to learn good habits and unlearn bad ones, no matter how ingrained or deep-seated. Its all a matter of habits or breaking bad ones is found in conscious repetition -fueled by knowledge, skill and motivation. One must repeat an action over and over and over again until it becomes a natural response, a habit. responsible, consciously focus and follow these seven habits, repeating them over and over until they become natural responses: Habit 1. Financially responsible people regularly balance their balance after every transaction. Yes, after every transaction! Habit 2. Financially responsible ahead of time whether the purchase is necessary or prudent. It means waiting. It means seeking out the best deal and being willing to walk away if necessary. Habit 3. Financially responsible simply do not spend all the money they have. Financially responsible they pay everyone else. Saving is a long-term process, and if necessary, savings goals. Habit 4. Financially responsible people dont see the monthly payment, but focus instead on the total price marketing tactics and zero in on the true cost and bottom line. Habit 5. Financially responsible a few bucks the current balance on their mortgage or other secured regularly update their net worth, and move in light of the effect it will have on their net worth. Habit 6.

In my case, it was a long process. I sabotaged myself for many years, convinced that I could never change. But I was wrong. I have changed and continue to make new progress every single day. And you can, too. I would consider it a responsibility with you.

Gabber July 21 July 27, 2011 51 A Gr eener Vi ewBy Je Rugg Tips to Reduce the Spread of Mosquitoes Lately, the news has been focused before that, can you remember all down to the Gulf Coast? Many areas mosquitoes. Of course, mosquitoes occur every summer, and there are some things about 200 species of mosquitoes in is not that they are annoying. But they can transmit many deadly viral diseases and parasites to people, pets strides in reducing some diseases, such as malaria. Other ones, like the West Nile virus have moved from Africa to the United States. Mosquitoes also transmit several varieties of encephalitis and the nematode, which gives heartworms to dogs. Mosquitoes can be grouped by how and where they lay their eggs. Floodwater mosquitoes lay their eggs on low-lying dry ground that is later eggs to hatch all at once. Under summer temperatures, the adults will emerge about two weeks after the initial heavy rains a nuisance for two weeks. Some of farther with strong winds. Container-breeding mosquitoes lay their eggs in stagnant water in tree holes, clogged gutters or anything laid on or near the water surface and hatch within a few days. A couple hundred of them together look like a the water. drink some blood before she can produce any eggs. Some species prefer mammals and some prefer birds, but they will take what comes their way. Most species prefer feeding in lowlight levels at night, late evening, early morning or in the shade. Controlling mosquitoes must begin with making sure they dont hatch in neighbors have any of the following potential mosquito nurseries? Old tires, buckets, swimming pool (even leaking faucet, air conditioner unit puddle, birdbath, fountain, pond water or septic tank, animal water bowls, irrigation water that puddles, thing left out that collects water. drain every one of these locations at least weekly. Any puddle that lasts more than four days could produce mosquitoes. In locations that cannot be drained, the best step is to kill them at the control mosquitoes is to use a product containing a biological larvicide some of them have a slow release method of dispersal. From Summit, Mosquito Dunks have been around the longest, and I have found they compressed sawdust donuts that biting, disease-spreading adults. Mosquito larvae ingest the bacteria as they feed and then get sick and mammals, birds or bees. Some other the most effective way to control mosquitoes. Adult insecticide sprays may look good to the onlooker, but they are not as effective at controlling mosquitoes.

Pressure-treated lumber is heavy, so you may need some help A strong basic design for an arbor uses two rectangular arches spaced attached to long horizontal feet on each end, and the sides are covered with lattice panels. When custom sizing your arbor to your needs, try to make all the pieces multiples of 2-foot lengths. use standard 8-foot lumber. two horizontal feet, which will rest on the ground. Feet that are 4 feet long should provide adequate stability. Drill holes in them 1 foot from each end. Also drill holes near the ends of four vertical side-frame pieces.

Currently there are many hybrids on the market, but few can touch the Prius in fuel economy. Aftermarket improvements on the Prius include an updated battery pack that will give the hybrid up to 100 mpg by allowing it to be plugged on this plug-in kit is that it voids requires installation by a trained mechanic. -Purely electric cars were introduced in 1950s with the Henney Kilowatt.

New electric cars are being designed that may act as storage units for the electrical grid to the grid during times of peak demand, like when their owners during midday heat. -Solar cars would be electric vehicles directly powered by solar panels attached to the car.
