16 Gabber August 2 August 6, 2012 Sailboat, from front page With water and time slipping away, a soggy group of volunteers pushed against the green barnacled hull, chanting heave in unison as they past, creating a wake to help rock the boat off the sand. Just moments after high tide, the sailboat that ran aground almost a month ago during Tropical Storm sand. From the beach, a crowd of almost 200 people cheered. After swim zone and in deeper water, rigger Steve Smith received a heros welcome on Gulfport Beach. I hope that this man never gets back on the boat, Smith, who organized the salvage operation, told reporters. I dont want to disparage anybody, but the owner of that boat was not a responsible boat owner. The owner, John Captain Jay Burki, did not attend the boat raising. Instead, he waited for news in his Bay Pines hospital bed. Burki went to the hospital Sunday night after receiving a jaw-breaking punch in downtown Gulfport. Burki lived on the beached boat with his gloves and masks removed bags of belongings and, according to volunteer Liz Foster, piles of crap, including dog waste and garbage. In addition, Foster told the Gabber, the Burki and Dreamer apparently shared the boat named Promise with a population of rats and roaches. As of press time, local animal lovers were waiting to get the ailing dog, Dreamer, from volunteers to an area vet for medical that a very sickly Dreamer had open sores. While some volunteers expressed sympathy for Captain Jay, many others expressed disgust at the condition of the boat and the effect its condition would have on the boating community. This guy is why theres legislation all over the state not allowing people to anchor more than 48 hours, Smith said. I wish him the best, but I hope to God he never gets back on this boat. Hes a black eye on the boating community. He let his boat wash up on the beach. The boat has a broken mast, no beam and no sails. to get a new bilge pump and wire a solar cell to run the battery for the bilge to ensure once they raised Promise it would not sink. They also report having to patch a myriad of holes in the hull. The Promise, Smith said, likely broke free and ran aground due to improper anchoring. Smith did thank the volunteers who spent the 20-ton sailboat free from the Gulfport Storage, Minuteman Press, Safety Tire, and Smokin Js for offering free or discounted services to feed the volunteers, remove and store Burkis belongings, and get the word out that the group needed volunteers. Although some criticized the City of Gulfport for not allowing motor boats inside the swim zone to help pull the Promise out of the sand, city manager Jim OReilly told the Gabber that while he would bend the rules and allow the motorized dinghies, he would not allow larger boats. The beach isnt closed today, he said, gesturing to a group of young children playing roughly 25 yards from the volunteers. We would have allowed Tow Boat US or Sea Tow, or a properly licensed and insured tow boat, to assist. He added that he did meet with Sea Tow, who said they would assist if the city would accept all liability. The citys insurance carrier, PRM, would not allow such a liability, OReilly said. Gulfport police have ticketed the vessel 11 times for $93 each time. Burki owes just over $1,000 in and OReilly will meet tomorrow to discuss how to handle the legal issues surrounding the vessel. The Gabber will update this story online keep readers abreast of Dreamers condition. Contact Cathy Salustri at CathySalustri@theGabber.com.

By Cathy SalustriCity of Gulfport: Reclaimed Water Q: a choice of providers. John Poloney, via Facebook A: Because there isnt enough to go around, and Gulfport depends on St. Petersburg for its water. Consider this: it takes four households using potable (drinking) water to create enough reclaimed water for one home. The city of Gulfport buys water wholesale from the city of St. Petersburg, and St. Petersburg, Gulfport City Manager Jim OReilly says, doesnt have the capacity or volume to extend its reclaimed water into Gulfport. On top of that, Gulfport doesnt have the infrastructure (distribution pipes and pumps) to offer residents and businesses reclaimed water.

When the love planet dances through the Cancerian part of the sky, she becomes a doting mother, intent on making the lives of her children as On the same day, Mercury will give us a break from his retrograde antics unobstructed. ARIES (March 21-April 19). Youll your relationships in a journal will help you to better understand your loved ones and your feelings about them. In order for the exercise to really be effective, you have to be absolutely sure that your writing will never fall into the wrong hands. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Its not like youre intentionally trying to pry into peoples psyches to reveal though you dont attempt to see through people, you cant help but notice, very clearly, who they are. And when that doesnt match up with who they want you to believe GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Trying to make things perfect is a trap that they started. Youll be in the thick of a project this week and much too close to the action to get any real helpful perspective. With faith and a get-it-done attitude, youll make it to the end. Striving for perfection will only stop you in your tracks. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Your unmet expectations dont have to cause frustration. You have choices. You can either change your approach to the reality around you, or you can change your expectation. Note that changing your approach to the reality doesnt always change the to adjust. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You cant stop your active mind, nor would beautiful. But it will be more peaceful to reach in one direction at a time instead of a million directions at once. By choosing a high thought on which to concentrate, you effectively suspend the rush of competing, unhelpful mental chatter. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Your mantra this week is nothing to much thats going right in your life -and so technically have much to lose -unless youre willing to take a risk, you wont move to the next level. When you go forward fearlessly, you snap up the spoils you desire. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). The secret to getting what you want this week what that is in measurable terms. Dont forget to attach a timeline to your efforts, as well. Let at least one other person know what youre up to, preferably someone who will keep you accountable. A Capricorn SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Being productive is not the same as being busy. Youll prove this with your efforts this week, which are well-considered and designed friends and loved ones because the task at hand is bigger than one person can do alone. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). For the most part, acting while temporarily upset is a mistake unless that action is geared toward getting into a better frame of mind. Whenever possible, choose your next move from a place of calm. Logical decision-making will move you into a wildly successful position. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Behavioral matters can be dealt with effectively now. You realize that behaviors that are reinforced continue. With a little thought and from an unwanted habit, and the behavior is quickly discontinued. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). In music, the end of the song is not the point of the song. Likewise, the prize of a paycheck or a trophy at the end of a long project is not the point for more deeply in love with the process of your work. Your efforts will play like a song that you and all the world can dance to. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The seduction of more is strong this week. When you look out into the world, youll see many who seem to have more, but whether or not they actually do is both irrelevant and none of your business. Use what you have to its fullest potential, and you will know the sweetness of success. This Week's Birthdays: Nobody really lives happily ever after. Rather, they live happily day by day, which is how you approach this year. Your efforts to be kinder than necessary will yield healthy relationships.

32 Gabber August 2 August 6, 2012 Somethin on my mind Somethin on my mindBy Bill Northr op B_Northr op@theGabber. com About Gun Control and Related Issues Let's do have a discussion about gun control. But let's also have a discussion about ammunition, explosives, about chemicals, the First Amendment, depiction of violence in the movies, violence in sports, drug use, civility, driving and drinking, driver's training, and the mental health system. All of these have been cited as contributors to random and unexpected death. Start with gun control. Start with reading the controls that we have now and the locations where they are the most stringent. Start with determining who committed the murder and whether their acts of having or acquiring weapons was criminal or not. Take a look at Norway's laws on guns. How did that psycho in Norway How do suicide bombers get all their a weekend in Chicago than died in hasn't seemed to work and some think it fuels the violence. But which drugs more and more people want more and more drugs (note rise in use of synthetic drugs). Give it to them or What about the mental health hospital facilities have closed in favor of drug-controlled, back-inthe-community treatment. Has this contributed to the incidence of mass Has the incidence of mass killing increased or is this the result of mass media and instant reporting coupled Words can be provocative. Wars have been started with words. What kind of controls should we place on speech and/or ideas resulted in mass Along those lines, what about movies (Japanese army did this Read "The Rape of Nanking") that continued exposure to violence can numb the sensitivity to it. Look at the violence in sports football and hockey where the big hits. Anyone remember the even argued that the old road runner cartoons promoted violence. Nearly 40,000 a year and probably 20 per cent are caused by drinking and driving. Yet, we permit drinking and tolerate access to alcohol for those with drivers' licenses. And, we tolerate speeding which is another killer. Nor do we train drivers well. We put young (and too old) people into 3,000 pound moveable, mobile, and high powered vehicles and say, "go to it". Then there are those who feel the spiritual base of this country, if not the world, has gone to hell. A spiritual sense of life may be essential to preserving not just life, but the quality of life. Of course, there are also those who feel that the spiritual side as expressed in organized religions over thousands of years has caused mass loss of life. Today, that certainly applies to those extremist Muslim who preach death to the outsiders and even some insiders. Can we deal with just one of these anything be done about those who feel the urge to kill and can always "Lizzie Borden had an ax/She gave her mother 40 whacks/And when she saw what she had done/She gave her father 41." For now, the discussion isn't really serious. It's an election year and it's about politics. If you want to have a serious, intellectual discussion about any and all of these issues, it will have to wait. Two things I forgot and need to mention: 1) I have a permit to carry and my wife has an NRA membership and 2) The simplest way to control weapons is to ban the manufacture of ammunition.

Gabber August 2 August 6, 2012 37 Featuring the Margaret River Region of Australia region has grown to become regarded as potentially one of the great wineproducing regions of the world. Armed with little more than passion in the early days, Margaret River winemakers have worked together to place the regions name on the world stage. Despite, or perhaps because of its youth when compared to centuries-old wine regions around the world, Margaret River has a vibrant and innovative wine industry that promotes progressive attitudes and trends in viticulture and winemaking. Margaret River wine is blessed by the regions natural environment which makes it a favourite for visitors around the world. Although the region contributes only 3 per cent of the countrys wine grapes it commands over 20 per cent of todays premium wine market. Today there are over 215 grape growers and wine producers in the region.

38 Gabber August 2 August 6, 2012 By Robert J. Myers, Esq. Decisions, Decisions, Decisions This week, let's take a look at how legal transfers of control and decision-making work. GUARDIANSHIP This is a legal process in which the court places an individual or agency in control of someone else's affairs. Since establishing a guardianship requires action by the Court system, it can be expensive and cumbersome. In addition, guardianship reduces an individual's legal rights to those of a minor. CONSERVATORSHIP This is a type of guardianship that applies only to a person's property and not his or her personal matters. As such, its scope is less restrictive, and the individual involved retains many of his or her legal rights. DURABLE POWER OF ATTORNEY By establishing a power of attorney, you authorize someone else to act in your behalf. You can give very limited powers, such as authorizing someone to sell property for you, or very broad powers, such as paying bills, making investment decisions, or making all decisions for you. A durable power of attorney remains in force even if the person who establishes it becomes incompetent. While a power of attorney is generally established to ensure that your affairs will be handled for you, it must be durable to be effective in the event of your incapacity. Any power of attorney, including a durable one, becomes null and void when either the person granting it or the person to whom it is granted dies. You should be sure to specify exactly what functions are to be covered by the durable power of attorney. For example, medical decisions, investment choices and property care can Of course, a durable power of attorney should be given only to someone you trust implicitly to act in your best interest. You should consult an of a durable power of attorney. Mr. Myers is the owner of Akerson St. Petersburg, Florida. The teleMyers welcomes calls regarding this article and other related legal topics.

Meeting participants also give impromptu talks on assigned topics, conduct meetings and develop skills related to timekeeping, grammar and parliamentary procedure. Members learn communication skills by working in the Competent Communication manual, a series of 10 self-paced speaking assignments designed to instill a basic foundation in public speaking. Members also take on various meeting roles and working in the Competent Leadership manual. In their learnby-doing approach, they dont lecture they give them responsibilities and mentoring to help.
