The geckos start out all the same, but when each no two were alike. The geckos range from fabric-covered geckos to Derek Johnsons Rebel gecko. The gecko art tradition started as part of the citys annual geckofest three years ago, when someone asked artist Owen Pach if hed seen the geckos in Sarasota. Somebody looked at me and said, hey, do you think you could make this happen?, Pach remembers. He contacted Arlo Steel on 49th Street, who donated the steel, and Michael Faour of Hydroknife, who donated the water jet cutting of the placed around town, were born. $1,000. The concept was not mine, Pach says I just sort of made it happen. Last year, all the money raised went for two public art sculptures at the entrance to the Waterfront Redevelopment District at Beach Boulevard and 28th Street South. This year, anyone may bid on any of the geckos at silent auctions at each of the eight locations, and idea with which Pach credits local arts supporter Doug Hudson.

26 Gabber August 16 August 22, 2012 By Holiday Mathis The Virgo sun phrase I analyze can be misleading, as it paints the picture of one who sits back, counts and speculates. It is precisely this mental work that makes the Virgo sun such a productive cycle. It forces us to spend time planning, to put success in measureable terms and to make the goals actionable. With a solid plan, execution seems inevitable. The passage of the sun into Virgo begins a time of high productivity. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Because daydreaming can be so pleasurable, the more elaborate your fantasy is the less likely you are to take immediate action to make it true. The fantasy becomes more enjoyable than trying to bring it into reality. This week, when you really want something, frame it simply in your mind and act swiftly. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). The challenges inside this weeks tasks have to do with the details involved. Each detail on its own seems unremarkable, but when you start to add up a handful of them, you quickly understand that there will be serious work involved in accomplishing the things you set out to do. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You want to steer your vessel because you feel that you know enough about the world to choose the best destinations and avoid the worst. You might be wrong, but youd rather be wrong and in charge than wrong because you let someone else drive your vehicle. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Anyone who tries to push you along will learn that you dont like to move forward until youre absolutely ready. Your choices get better as the week progresses. Youll commit yourself to a task on Thursday, shortly after you imagine all of the goodness and pleasure that is likely to come from the experience. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Einstein pointed out how problems have to be solved from a different vantage from the one from which they were created. Fortune favors you because youre willing to step out of your familiar zone and get a little uncomfortable in order to see your situation from an angle you cant grasp right now. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). People who say that love has nothing to do with looks are usually the same people who happen to be in love with a model. Appearances dont count for everything, but they do count for something, which is why you make the effort to keep yours the best it can be. Youll enjoy the time you spend on yourself. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Those who do a job for the personal glory are often harshly judged. And yet, true personal glory is never are involved in and inspired by such a victory. So if you feel motivated to go for the win, do it. Youre not the only one who will be winning. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You realized long ago that its better to live fully in your own situation, but sometimes you have to remind yourself not to rubberneck in other peoples lives. The person inside an experience is the only one who really knows what its like. Blame, projection, judgment and speculation are pretty much a waste of time. ARIES (March 21-April 19). The conventional wisdom suggests its better to state what you want clearly because people are not mind readers. But what if you believe people are mind readers? They certainly know more than they let on. Sometimes stating the obvious is neither cool creative way. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The contradiction of a Samurai warrior is that even though they spend years honing deadly skills, they are also absolutely must. This week shows you in a position of choice: Should you display your power? Instead of putting the smack-down on your opponent, avoid confrontation. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Be careful not to spend too much time constructing tomorrows that you hope will make you happy. Believe it or not, you likely will be a poor judge of that. What really will make you happy is always in the present position to seize pleasure, though sometimes youll have to steal it. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Attempting to solve peoples problems is a mistake unless you person who has the problem and are reasonably sure you can deliver the answer. Otherwise, you might be like their problems and dont want them solved. This Week's Birthdays: Youre in the mood to take a risk. Thats why this years journey around the sun will be more like an amusement park ride than a long boat trip. The next three weeks bring promises of what is to come, and then the ups and downs will start to thrill you. Someone cheers for you in September. Sock away money in October. A new friend leads to a welcome change of scenery. Family descends on your abode in November. Youll feel ready for a nice long break in the action in March.

34 Gabber August 16 August 22, 2012 Somethin on my mind Somethin on my mindBy Bill Northr op B_Northr op@theGabber. com Why not an Educational Olympics? Why not have an Olympics of the mind? We've watched, the last two weeks with much excitement and fanfare, a display of the stamina, speed of the bodies of the world's greatest athletes. Oh, that we could observe the brilliance of the world's greatest minds covering hundreds of subjects. Certainly, the world's greatest producers, promoters and teachers could create events to capture the public's imagination. I write this half in fantasy, but not in jest. We need excitement about education. We need competition within the public education system. We need to value education and learning and skills of the mind as high as we value the physical abilities of people. No, I don't mean handing out pay raises to teachers and increasing scholarships for students. We need to create the excitement about the wonders of the mind. And, we need to do it in mass proportions just as we have with sports. To some extent we do this with music which truly permeates our culture. there is recognition and rewards. We start this in grade school, we ourselves into stadiums to hear it, we wire our heads to listen to it, and we pay millions to the performers. hard work and discipline, it requires coaching and standards, it creates excitement. Not all people make it. Not all are equal in performance. But, it's an exciting race. Can we raise academic achievement to that level? Well, the Olympics go back a few years. According to Wikipedia and a few other sources, the Olympics supposedly started in 776 BC and lasted until 300 something AD (they were too pagan). They were revived in France in the late 1800s. An academic of education has to start sometime. Why not start around the years 2012-2013? It can be argued that we already have competition in education. We take tests; fortunately, we still have spelling bees, the closest to public competition; we publish honor rolls; we recognize achievements and standings; we award scholarships; and the better performers ultimately are chosen for the higher paying jobs. It's all true, but it's all a little ho-hum. Honor rolls don't have standings. Individuals are lumped in groups. Test scores are private so as not to embarrass those who didn't do well. I just can't visualize a pump test scores are handed out. Some private schools do have more competition. Japanese schools used to have a near mind-blowing competitive factor that, in recent years, has been put down as too stressful, too competitive, too demanding. The Chinese (and other Asians) have been so competitive on the college level that there is a complaint that many isolate themselves and lack social skills. That's not unlike athletes whose only focus is sports and whose life's interest are so narrow that they There are always excesses. However, I don't think we would be in danger of an excess of education. And, there are enough educational subjects math, literature, history, and all the sub-subjects as well as technical or mechanical subjects so that not many students would be left out. Competition can also be for broad or deep knowledge of a subject, speed of response, and, always, accuracy. Competition can be in written form (computer or pencil) or oral. Like sports, make it fun, while still insisting on discipline and study. I'm always amazed that professional athletes who have barely made it through school, can absorb multipage play books, instructions, and perform mental tasks while being shoved around. Hey, few people are truly stupid. While minds are not all equal anymore than bodies are all equal, all minds have the ability to learn and the capacity to retain. Expectation, training and discipline are major components of performance. We need to start out day one with high expectations and high support for making students recognize their own capabilities. Encouragement is always an element of good coaching and so is expectation and discipline and self study. So, I'm for some competitive mental games leading to an Olympic stage. It would be good for students. It would be good for teachers who get recognition and ultimately rewards. It would make education more fun. It's a mind set that we can't get started on soon enough.

36 Gabber August 16 August 22, 2012 By Matthew Margolis Canine 911 Emergencies are rarely convenient. Heart attacks happen on honeymoons. Strokes strike in the dead of night. Humans have entrenched systems to accommodate these events: dispatchers, ambulances, paramedics, emergency rooms. Thankfully, so do dogs. Emergency animal hospitals are where we turn when things go wrong with our animals after hours. Only Hollywood gets to plan its disasters head to tail. The rest of us have to plan for the possibilities. Having a good emergency clinic on speed dial is as important as having a diligent vet for regular checkups and maintenance. I was reminded of this recently when I had a scare myself. Something was wrong with my German shepherd, Nilo. He was listless. His breathing was labored. My heart sank. It was a Sunday. Ive had sick dogs. Ive had injured dogs. Ive lost dogs to cancer. Needless to say, I was worried and anxious as I helped Nilo into the car and drove him to Mother Lode Pet Emergency Clinic in Shingle Springs, Calif. Stepping into the clinic, I was probably more nervous than Nilo, whos a pretty smooth operator in most circumstances. But on this day, he wasnt feeling well, which was obvious -and not only to me. Within seconds of our arrival, we were greeted by a nurse. Nurse Pug. She approached Nilo calmly, looked him over with gentle eyes and then and rolled onto her back. Ill never forget her soft fawn coat, her sweet, smooshed pug face or the way she seemed to say to Nilo, Dont worry. Itll be OK. Nurse Pug will take good care of you until the doctor can examine you. Turns out Nurse Pug is the antidote to waiting room disorder, the symptoms of which include nausea, digestive upset, dry mouth or extreme drooling, depending on the species. But Nurse Pug was just the beginning. Dr. Heidi Hilleary and vet tech Tessa were on duty that day. These two embody the Mother Lode mission: to provide comprehensive and compassionate expert emergency pet care. Nilo was in competent, caring hands, and that meant the world to me. When all was said and done, Nilos blood work was good. Hes healthy and at home. He has a little arthritis creeping in, which was likely the source of his discomfort. Nothing we cant manage. Can you hear my sigh of relief? The whole experience served as a reminder to me to 1) encourage dog owners to keep the number of a good emergency animal clinic on hand and 2) thank these people for the great service they provide. The people -and the pug -at Mother Lode made all the difference, and I know there are veterinarians, technicians and support staff in emergency animal hospitals across the country who work crazy hours and provide huge relief: a place to go when crisis comes at an inconvenient dedication. Thank you, Dr. Hilleary. Thank you, tech Tessa. Thank you, Nurse Pug. Thank you all.

Gabber August 16 August 22, 2012 41 Diet, Exercise, Love: One Mans Key to Long Life In nine months, I turn 70. I often ask myself, why am I so healthy? I feel so full of energy and able to do as much as or more than I did at age 40. My secret, I believe, is that I mostly eat right. I am overweight but not obese -no matter how hard I try, this is the best I am going to do -and I walk my dog briskly seven days a week for about 30 minutes. I am very hopeful about the future and the plenty of opportunities available to make work and days interesting and exciting, with the sense that I can continue to make a difference. I will never retire. Most importantly, I give love and respect to and receive it from the many individuals I work with daily and for whom I have great affection. I strive to be successful as a physician by genuinely and truly loving my patients. I work particularly hard on love -the ones who never get better, question your every suggestion, are often rude and usually frustrated. These are the patients who are doctor shoppers and more than anyone else need someone who will never give up on them. No question, love is the key to happiness, health and longevity. It exists in many forms: in our faith, the love we have for our patients, students, workers and friends. Love is a powerful health tonic. And an important new study shows if you want to live long and live well, do not be a curmudgeon. People who are kind, loving, considerate, laugh a lot and are friendly to everyone are twice as likely to make it to the ripe old age of 100. Do not bottle up your feelings and if possible, do not speak ill of others. These personality traits may well be genetic -the most powerful predictor of living to 100 is the ages at which your parents died. Being sweet, kind, good and living long may all be gifts inherited from your parents. But if seek help and try to change. Your life will be better and may be longer. Love people, love life, love your work, be a kind and good person and longevity is all but assured. But people with all these wonderful attributes can lose much and become lonely. And new research in the Archives of Internal Medicine documents the powerful negative effects of loneliness. For example, in a study of 45,000 people who had a heart attack, patients who lived alone were 24 percent more likely to die during a four-year follow-up period than those who lived with a spouse or a roommate. But living alone does not mean that you are lonely. Many people are perfectly content to be by themselves, love their own company and cope well. However, those individuals who reported that they were lonely were 46 percent more likely to die than those who did not say they were lonely. Lonely people are far more likely to be depressed, be sedentary, eat poorly and have poor health habits such as smoking or drinking. It is not surprising, therefore, that life expectancy is reduced. Any man in a long-standing, loving and intimate relationship has a 50 percent chance of living 10 years longer than a man living a relationship as well, but only by three years. Married men are more likely to have medical checkups, wear a seat belt, drink in moderation, be compliant with medications, eat right and exercise. And if the woman dies before her husband, he has a 30 percent chance of death within a year. Studies also indicate that the happier the marriage, the more quickly the widower remarries. By contrast, many women state that they were married to the best partner and no other man could ever match up. My advice, however, is to remember that as we grow older, loneliness becomes a threat and companionship, tonic for a longer and better life.

Gabber August 16 August 22, 2012 47 Gecko SeasonHang onto your hats, folks, its Gecko Season. I saw Shipyard Pumpkinhead ale in the grocery store two days ago, which means that our lovely faceof-the-sun-hot summer will start to wind itself down shortly, and after the kids go back to school the geckos will come out. Because Im not like most of the world and if youre a Gulfportian, youre not, either pumpkins and geckos are all somehow tied together in my mind. Thanks to the marketing machine that feels the need to start showing us Halloween stuff about three minutes after the last Fourth Halloween is just around the corner. Of course, if these marketing geniuses lived anywhere near Gulfport, they would realize theyve missed the boat on a major holiday that falls between Independence Day and Halloween: GeckoFest. Which is why I say to you now, forget Halloween for a while longer, because its Gecko Season, yall. See, the way I look at it, Gulfport has four seasons. No, not those boring traditional seasons theyre lackluster and way too northern for how we do things down here. In Gulfport, we start the year with Election Season (honestly, my least favorite, because its unreasonably cold and I spend the bulk of my time sorting through political donkey excrement). By the time we elect new leaders in March, were well into Festival Season. Our mayor puts it most succinctly: Gulfport celebrates everything but water bill day. Ive always suspected thats only because to squeeze in the celebration. After out how its going to foot the bill for another year of small town living at Thats where we are now, Budget Season, although were almost through and then we can turn to Geckos. Im not going to talk about the budget, because lets all be honest with each other, sometimes its exhausting to think about politics and money and really, arent geckos more fun? I mean, if you found a budget in your house, youd be like, Meh, but if you found a huge gecko, youd get pretty excited, right? Ive traveled most of Florida, including a bevy of small towns who all bill themselves as eclectic, artsy, and unique. So many small towns now bill themselves as eclectic, artsy, and unique that the truly unique town should probably bill itself as ordinary, boring, and mass produced to really stand out. Were not all special, because calling everyone special, to quote the Incredibles, is another way of saying no one is. Except, in Gulfport, we do have one thing that makes a special kind of special. Other towns have drama and politics and art walks and spring carnivals and Fourth of July parades, but only Gulfport has geckos. Geckofest remains the one thing that is truly ours, from the steel gecko art in downtown restaurants to the Gecko Parade where the mayor beebops up and down Beach Boulevard carrying his one-of-a-kind Nancy Cervenka Gecko Stick. So what is Geckofest? Its an endof-summer celebration that started in 2001. Former resident and arts champion Frank Hibrant came up with the name. People who dont know ask if the name has something to do with the anoles (you may call them lizards) scurrying around town. Nope. The name means nothing. Its just a cool name. In fact, organizers resisted efforts to name it after a native species. Other towns have festivals that tie to something about the town Plant City has the Strawberry Festival and Queen, LaBelle has the Swamp Cabbage Festival and Queen, and Monticello has the Watermelon Festival and Queen but in Gulfport, we have no special reason, other than just because. For a name that has no special meaning, its come to epitomize Gulfport, at least for me. I love Gecko Season: the gecko art, the Gecko Ball that has an... interesting... theme, the Gecko Parade. What do I love best? The non sequitur-ish-ness of the whole party. I love the lack of deeper meaning. I love that, despite the name, odds are you wont see a single live gecko at GeckoFest. Because in Gulfport, were not about the actual geckos at all. Were just about GeckoFest. Happy Gecko Season, everyone. Contact Cathy Salustri at CathySalustri@theGabber.com.
