4 Gabber September 13 September 19, 2012 Special Pickup Fees to Increase in Gulfport Special pickup fees could increase in Gulfport. Currently special waste pickup of a single item costs $11.25; a white goods pickup (appliances like washing machines and dryers) costs $22.50 If council votes approval rates at the September 18 meeting, those fees will increase to $17 and $34, respectively.Gulfport Minibus Trip Fees Could Increase The cost of GEMS (Gulfport Extended Minibus Service) trips will go up one dollar (for a total perride cost of two dollars per trip) and the registration fee will increase by $10. Its still a huge bargain compared to any other transportation service, and its door to door, Councilwoman Jennifer Salmon said, explaining that the Senior Center had input into the increase. The service, she pointed out, has increased service cessation of the Gulfport Trolley. Council approved this increase council meeting; it will vote on the September 18 council meeting.Gulfport Waives Sewer Impact Fees Councilman Dan Liedtke wants to try waiving city sewer impact fees for Gulfport over the next year. Councilman Liedtke says he hopes waiving such fees would give Gulfport an edge in attracting new business. Im for economic development, Councilwoman Barbara Banno said of the idea. The city charges sewer impact fees for any business or residential new bathroom construction involving a new toilet or bidet. Only Councilwoman Jennifer Salmon voted against waiving the fees. Council will revisit the waiver next year. Such fees generate roughly $5,000 for Gulfport.

Gabber September 13 September 20, 2012 7 Gulfport Budget Hearing Short and Peaceful There is no limit to what can be accomplished if it doesnt matter who gets the credit. Ralph Waldo Emerson. With those words Gulfport Councilwoman Barbara Banno on Wednesday, September 5. The hearing took less than 10 minutes and heard no comment from the public. City council unanimously adopted the roll-forward tax rate of 4.0390 mils, or roughly $4.04 per thousand dollars of taxable value. This represents a tax rate increase for property owners, but the average property owner in Gulfport will not see a dollar increase, according to City Manager Jim OReilly. This rate allows the city to collect the same amount of tax revenue as last year. This results from decreasing property values (about 1.1% on the average in Gulfport). Council also approved a $10.5 million balanced operations budget, down from the initial proposed $10.8 million budget the council faced in May. OReilly thanked the staff as well as the council, and the council, including councilmembers Dan Liedtke and Jennifer Salmon, thanked city staff. I feel like were doing the right budget, and not all the other cities are able to do that without making huge concessions in other things, so I think we have a lot to be proud of, Councilwoman Jennifer Salmon said. Gulfport will hold its second and at 7 p.m. in city council chambers.Volleyball area Closed for Expansion The Beach Volleyball courts will be closed for a revamp and expansion beginning Saturday, September 15th and will reopen on Saturday, Parks and Recreation Department would like to thank you in advance for your patience.

10 Gabber September 13 September 19, 2012 Letters Not a Fan Dear Editor: Once again I read at the false statements and bias opinion-tone of his words. I am so tired of columnists thinking their page writing means anything to any of us with a brain. Journalism used to be an honorable profession, it is work like this that degrades it and your paper. I would love to be able to pick up this neighborhood jewel and just read the unbiased news and see the events coming. another hobbyjournalism is not his forte. His attempt at humor misses the mark. He is insulting to the subjects he writes about because he has too little information or education on each topic. And strictly in my opinion, someone who is going to educate people needs to see both sides of the fence. We already have too many people who voice their opinions, based on facts that they have never bothered to see if they are true. They just perpetuate the falsehoods and lies, and base their opinions on them too. You are doing your "jewel" a disservice by allowing this quality of journalism to invade it.Patti Jagisch Learn about Tenants Rights On Wednesday, September 19, Community Law Program, Inc. services organization will host a free outreach forum to educate the public about tenants rights and responsibilities. This event will take place at the Enoch Davis Recreation Center, 111 18th Avenue S. in St. Petersburg at 5 p.m. Renters are often taken advantage of by landlords who do not maintain their properties and unlawfully threaten eviction. Also, in todays economy many landlords are facing foreclosure on properties where tenants are currently residing. The Community Law Program has coordinated a team of volunteer attorneys to alert and educate the general public about their obligations and rights as tenants. The forum will also include information on how to respond to notices of evictions, the options available to tenants facing eviction, and what to do if a landlord is in foreclosure. Additionally, participants will be able to speak with attorneys one-on-one about their concerns. For more information, contact Kimberly Rodgers, Executive Director of CLP, at 727-582-7480, or visit www.LawProgram.org.

Y We Also Handle Social Security Disability!ou could say my motto is been there, done that, says Keith Sanders, from Sanders Law, P.A. He says that for two reasons. First, he says his more than 20 years of experience as an attorney specializing in handling literally thousands of bankruptcies 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. 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 situation 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 colleagues who knew me and go through the process myself, that usually helps to put people more at ease and understand that I have been there and done that MYSELF. You know, in 99 percent 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. Department of Justice in Atlanta. He is licensed to practice law in both Florida and Georgia. I like what I do because I feel like I can help people get a fresh start, said Sanders. Since the initial consultation is free, you really dont 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 number of seminars and written professional papers concerning bankruptcy law in general, ECF requirements and new issues. He is a former director of the Bankruptcy Section of the State Bar of Georgia. The firm also handles Short Sale negotiations, defense against foreclosures, wills & trusts, civil litigation and personal injury. Despite what you may have read or heard recently, any debt discharged in Bankruptcy is a non taxable event as far as the IRS is concerned. We understand this is not an easy process or concept to grasp. We would like an opportunity to explain in depth and in terms that are relatable to you, the homeowner, just what this means and how it could be of benefit to you and your future. Every situation is different and therefore has a different solution, so please call us and let us discuss what is best for you, and then you can decide what course to take. Remember there are LEGAL SOLUTIONS FOR YOUR FUTURE a nd we would like the chance to show those to you Only you can make the call for a FREE consultation. 727-729-9022 Evening and weekend appointments are available.Sanders La w, P.

Tony Althaus A: According to Harbormaster Denis Frain, Gulfport will repair both the dune walkover dock as well as the Clam Bayou dock as soon as it receives a third bid. Once the city gets the third bid and decides on a company, the repairs can start. The repairs should take two to three weeks, Frain says.

According to legend, the god started off as a bit of a thief. To keep him out of trouble, his father, Zeus, put him in charge of commerce, birds, pigs, trade, and various and sundry responsibilities. This week, as Mercury enters Libra, politics and other relationships will A bright, inventive, cooperative energy prevails. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Attitude is everything. Does it really make sense to keep going at a task with a sour attitude? Whether the attitude in question is yours or someone elses, consider walking away for a time. Solving problems and getting through instances of low morale will be easier when you have a better perspective on matters. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Your manner of dealing with a particularly challenging part of your life will Step back and sense your advantage. Where are your points of leverage? Tuesday brings a support system. Youll hold tangible evidence of your success on Friday. SCORPIO is often a small thing you can hold in the palm of your hand, and yet its power is enormous. It can open a home or start the vehicle that takes you across the world. This week introduces a kind of key that is typically small and yet not tangible. Its more of an idea or an approach that can open the whole world to you. SAGITTARIUS If you make a bad impression, dont worry. A bad impression is still an impression. You werent put on Earth to fade into the background. Consider that you may have been put here to make mistakes -and to occasionally feel the exquisite thrill of winning. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Your wishes come in many sizes, shapes and colors. The universe doesnt discriminate. Sometimes big wishes come true while small ones go unanswered. Other times, its the opposite. You may suspect your blessings have been dealt at random. This weeks evidence suggests thats not the case at all. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). When is your time your own? If you give too much of it away to activities that dont mean anything to you or to people who drain you, you may feel like the answer is never. Youll remedy your situation this week, carving out several hours to do what feeds your soul. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Devote yourself in some small way to developing in the manner to which you aspire. Maybe its a project, a talent or an abdominal exercise. Twenty minutes may not seem like something done, but when you dedicate those 20 minutes on a daily basis, things develop at a rate most pleasing. ARIES (March 21-April 19). You respect social norms with the exception of anything that threatens to limit your privacy, personal expression or freedom. Such infringements are intolerable to you, and youre likely to speak up about the injustice, especially on Thursday and Friday. You could even start a social movement. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). What keeps you from achieving a certain goal is only real because you believe it is. If you believe its just an excuse, it will be that, too. And what if you believe its a solvable problem? Youll solve it; thats what. Youll come up with the answer and move past it. helps matters, too. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Youll be presented to new people and groups and introduced in a way that this slightly surprising because you dont often think of how others see you. Introductions have a way of giving you an interesting glimpse of yourself from an outsiders view. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Infants learning to walk dont think about what happened the last time they tried and fell down. Instead, they get up and try again, and their body works out the physical equation. Similarly, you dont have to think about the past to act on all it has taught you. Trust yourself to automatically adjust. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Youll meet someone you really want to impress. As you wonder what would impress this person, consider the value of being an authentic human. So few people are willing to say what they really want or admit what they are afraid of. Be different, and youll be most impressive. This Week's Birthdays: Many of your predictions about this year will come true because you planned them and made them happen.

And compare the 50 calories in a cup of coffee 20 years ago to the 330 calories found today in a grande cafe mocha with cream. And why not buy big? The cost differential is small. For example, a 32-ounce soft drink (400 calories) costs 99 cents; a 44-ounce soft drink (533 calories) costs $1.09; and a 64-ounce soft drink has 776 calories and costs $1.19. Larger portions are not limited to fast food chains. Even at the increasing, and to accommodate the food, the standard serving plate is 3 to 4 inches larger in diameter. The food industry is responding to the obesity epidemic by offering healthier choices. Today salads with fewer calories, healthier desserts and more fruits and vegetables are readily available. However, the bottom line force. And if offering larger portions any regulation will be enormous. According to The New York Times, moviegoers are being asked to sign petitions against the ban on large, sugary drinks, and a spokesman for states, we are bewildered by the proposal to choose an ineffective gimmick to address a critical health issue. Despite the best of intentions, I believe that Bloombergs attempt to reduce portion size is doomed to failure. There is no question that portion size has contributed to the obesity epidemic. The more food placed in front of you, the more you eat. Like most Americans, I clean my plate. Give me a thousand calories and I will eat a thousand, leave and feel a meal with an appetizer, big main course and rich dessert, and I clean my plate, burp and complain that I have eaten too much. And as little as an extra 200 or 300 calories daily will lead to insidious and inevitable weight gain. If we are to tackle the obesity epidemic, addressing portion sizes must be everyones responsibility. Avoid supersized meals; make the right choices; and order a side salad instead of French fries and fruit instead of an ice cream for dessert. Eat at home as much as possible, and when eating out, order the smallest rather than the largest portion. Because meals are so large, consider buying a meal for one and sharing. The Institute of Medicine stated in a recent report that blaming obesity exclusively on the weakness of the individual is incorrect. To solve the problem, we all have to pitch in and that includes the food industry. Instead of being ordered, voluntarily make serving sizes smaller, charge that by doing so lives will be saved! We as a nation will be better for it.

Gulfport Gets EV Charging StationMichele Cavallo, a senior account executive with Progress Energy (now Duke Energy), explains how Gulfports new electric vehicle charging station works to councilman Henderson Saturday morning the entire city council unveiled the citys new electric vehicle charging station. The city pays the power for the charging station, located just east of the Casino on Shore Boulevard. Michele Cavallo, an account the station worked. According to Cavallo, Gulfport has one of eight stations in the area. St. Petersburg has three, St. Pete Beach has one by its city hall, Pinellas Park has two, and the Tampa Bay Regional Planning Council has one. Councilwoman Jennifer Salmon and Vice Mayor Sam Henderson spoke with Cavallo after the unveiling about the possibility of using solar energy for the charger, which currently uses fossil fuel for power. As part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 the United States Department of Energy spent $1 million to fund 50 public charging stations within Progress Energys Florida service area. To use the station, simply plug in the electric vehicle. The city will pay the cost of the energy for the next two years; after that time it may elect to ask the users to pay for the power.

36 Gabber September 13 September 19, 2012 Somethin on my mind Somethin on my mindBy Bill Northr op B_Northr op@theGabber. com Government Is Us politically philosophical statement even within the Democratic Party whose host committee at the Democrat convention in Charlotte was responsible for the video in which the statement was made. Obama staffers reportedly declined responsibility even though that was the central theme of the convention. Even if one concedes that all of us are, one way or another, a part of government local, state voluntary membership. Even putting government in the same category, as the video did, of your church or voluntary community organization, is an extreme position. A number of people pointed out the obvious: we us. issue is about a philosophy that government is imbedded in our private lives, that it is the keeper of the truth and the way, that it holds the solution to the problems of supplant private industry, that it can be a piggy bank for government of the day, that government is your constant companion. Obviously, there is a role for government, primarily military, law enforcement, education, taking care of the poor, and basic infrastructure. The questions have always been about how far those powers should extend. The Constitution was designed government and protect individual freedoms. The Founders, students of history and the behavior of men, feared the power of government. Government, after all, has the power you, to arrest you, to conscript you into its military. challenge today is the same as it was over 200 years ago. The recent history of the communist experiment is really all the proof needed. The larger and more powerful the government, the smaller and more Cuba is the government paradise to look at. When I visited several years ago I asked why buildings were falling down, why the plumbing and the apartments. Residents said they were waiting for the government workers to do the work. They had neither the tools, nor the incentive, nor the permission, to do the work. It There are those who believe the Constitution is outdated, that government needs to be streamlined and freed from the fetters of the Constitution. Still others believe that more government spending in more areas is more important than controlling the debt, or, if concerned about the debt, that more taxation is the solution to reducing that debt. And, still others believe that both of these events should occur for the citizen. I contend that the past history of communism and the current history of socialism and the sometimes limited socialism of Europe illustrates that solutions. Whats on your mind?

Gabber September 13 September 20, 2012 39 Try your hand at SudokuBy Scott LafeeWhere Theres Smoke, Theres Fire Decades of public and private health efforts have drummed into most American heads that smoking is bad for ones health. On average, according to the Centers for Disease Control, smokers die 13 to 14 years earlier than nonsmokers. Less than 1 in 5 Americans smoke, but smoking still accounts for about 1 in 5 deaths annually. Thats grim, but its grimmer almost everywhere else. A new study says tobacco use worldwide is growing, fueled by not just lax or nonexistent public health efforts, but by active government advocacy based on shortterm economic considerations. Governments around the world need to start giving economic and regulatory advantages to agricultural products that promote health, instead of to products such as tobacco that kill people, said Gary A. Giovino, senior author of the study published in the journal The Lancet. In the absence of effective actions, about one billion people worldwide will die prematurely in the next century from tobacco use, Giovino said. And most of those deaths and the health care and economic costs that come with them, will be borne by lowerand middle-income countries. The study surveyed 3 billion people in 14 lowand middle-income countries (Bangladesh, Brazil, China, Egypt, India, Mexico, the Philippines, Poland, Russia, Thailand, Turkey, Ukraine, Uruguay and Vietnam), making comparisons with the United States and the United Kingdom. -Forty-nine percent of men and 11 percent of women used tobacco (smoked, smokeless or both). -While womens tobacco-use rates remain low, women are beginning to smoke as early as men, around age 17 instead of in their 20s. -The majority of tobacco users smoked manufactured cigarettes. -China had the highest number of tobacco users at 301 million people (including 52.9 percent of men) followed by India, with 274 million people ( 47.9 percent of men). -Quit ratios were highest in the U.S. and the U.K., as well as in Brazil and Uruguay, where tobacco control activities are strongest; they were lowest in China, India, Russia and Egypt -Currently, tobacco use worldwide causes more than 5 million deaths per year. Current trends show that it will produce more than 8 million deaths annually by 2030. BODY OF KNOWLEDGE The average shoe size for an American male adult is size 9, for a female, size 7. DOC TALK Claudication -limping caused by a reduction in blood supply to the legs. PHOBIA OF THE WEEK Ipovlopsychophobia -fear of having ones photograph taken. BEST MEDICINE A man went to see his doctor because he was suffering from a miserable cold. His doctor prescribed some pills, but they didnt help. On his next visit, the doctor gave him a shot, but that didnt do any good, either. On the mans third visit, the doctor told the man to go home and take a hot bath. the doctor said, the man was to throw open all the windows and stand in the draft. But doc, protested the patient, if I do that, Ill get pneumonia. I know, replied the physician. I can cure pneumonia."

Still, the city always contained several studios and many artists just no galleries. Until last Saturday. On September 8, Domain Home Accessories opened The Gallery, a 750 square foot gallery featuring mostly Gulfport artists.

Its an incredible showcase of Gulfport artists, The Gallery manager Mike McCue says. McCue, who used to own Domain and still works there, spearheaded The Gallerys opening. When Renee Originals, a longtime renter on Beach Boulevard, gave her notice, Domain snapped up the neighboring spot the same day. McCue, owners Bobbi Stapleton and Mike Knettel, and local workers treated mold, ripped out carpets, repainted, and created a gallery. The Gallery, McCue says, is something the communitys been asking for for artists. I think Gulfport is going through a wonderful renaissance. At the ribbon showing (The Gallery bucked tradition and opted not to cut the velvet ribbon), Mayor Mike Yakes praised the work. thought, every dream Ive ever had. Every thought, he said, he saw in The Gallery. Co-owner Micharl Knettel thanked the crowd gathered. Everyone of you, he said, perched atop a bench, is why were here. Local artists include glass artist Owen Pach, photographer Mel Lowe and mixed medium artist Jonathan Schork, as well as a bevy of others.

And its also true that gaining control over ones families and change the future. For that, I am eternally grateful. Let me assure you right up front that it is possible for you to gain things may appear right now. In the same way you had to learn the three Rs as a child (reading, riting and rithmetic!), there are three Rs form the foundation of meaningful change. Responsibility contributing circumstances, until you are willing to take full responsibility probably little hope for meaningful change. You may need to take responsibility for not participating Perhaps you feel paralyzed by a divorce settlement you dont perceive to be fair. Or you no longer feel responsible for a student loan because youve quit school or you arent working in your profession of choice. You demonstrate your commitment to take full responsibility when you: 1. Accept ownership. Even if you were not the only contributor to the mess, you need to take responsibility for it. Stop looking back, stop wishing, and stop whining. If it has your name on it, its your responsibility. 2. Stop running. Like most who ground, youre not really sure exactly how much you owe. Instead of hanging up on your creditors, throwing away the bills and doing everything you can to avoid facing the music, stop running. Accept the calls, do the right thing, learn the truth, get it down in writing, inhale deeply, and take responsibility. 3. Make a commitment. If you will promise to do whatever it takes to repay your debt and learn to live within your means, I can promise you a bright future. It wont be a bed of roses -but it will be worth it, I promise you that. Regret. There are two aspects to this second R. 1. Regret must be genuine. Its important that you regret making poor choices. Perhaps you arrogantly presumed on future income to cover present whims, lied to your spouse need to regret whatever it is that has contributed to where you are. But its more than that. 2. Regret must also include repentance. To repent means simply to turn around and go in another direction. You have to stop doing things the way you have been. Repair. There are many ways to Credit Counseling (www.nfcc.org) is one way. Another is to develop your own get-out-of-debt plan. Above all, you need to concentrate on reducing expenses and increasing income. The good news is that putting the situations can be repaired, and in less time than you ever dreamed possible.

Gabber September 13 September 20, 2012 45 We are FamilyBy the time you read this, Ill be on vacation, and I have to tell you, I have a serious case of vacation brain. Im having a hard time thinking about work. For part of the time Ill be in Costa Rica, trekking through rain forests and watching a volcano through my room. Hopefully, the volcano will not erupt. I mean, they already had an earthquake this month, so I think theyre full up on disaster. I hope. The rest of the time Ill bum around Florida and relax at home, trying valiantly not to check the Gabbers Facebook page and my work e-mail. In my stead youre going to see a familiar face popping into your events. Well, shell be familiar to some of you Shelly Wilson worked at the Gabber a decade ago, and shes recently (very recently, as in just this week recently) returned from a three year stint in Denmark. Shes graciously agreed to hang out around town and take some pictures for the paper. If you see her around town, be nice. Shes a lot kinder than I am. Ill admit, I feel childish at how excited I am to have her back home, even if Im celebrating her return by leaving the country. Shelly worked at the Gabber when I started there, and out of that grew a friendship, and even though she hasnt worked I cant think of the paper and, by extension, Gulfport without associating it with her. Last week I spent some time talking with Chamber President Lori Rosso about Gulfport and our ties to the city. We came to Gulfport around the same time, and weve shared observations over the years. I dont always agree with the Chamber of Commerces actions, but I always like Lori a great deal, so it was a pleasure to sit and relax with her. One of the things we talked about is what Gulfport means to us. For me, Gulfport was exactly what I needed at a challenging time in my life, and even though I live across the bridge now, the tiny town holds a special place in my heart. Whenever I get frustrated with the job and think about quitting (its been nine years, people, and Im amazed Im still hanging in here), I cannot conceive of a life without Gulfport and the Gabber. Its not that my world is so small as much as it is that you are all so big. Ive written about family before, and I love certain members of my blood family tremendously. Others? Well, if I never saw them again, my life would likely not be any worse for the absence. As an only child, I learned to make my family with my friends, and thats what Ive done with Shelly and, to an extent, some of you. Because, really, we can talk about community and neighborhoods all we want, but what weve all done here is make our own families. Ive done it with Shelly and the girls (Leah and Stacey and the rest youve heard me talk about them enough in the past, Im not going to rehash it here) and I see you all do it with each other. Im honored to be a part of it, on any level, and I think that the fabric of our community is composed of family units that have little to do with blood and more to do with love. If youve reached the point in the column where youre waiting for me to start in on some group or another or launch into some bitter invective about trees or city council, Im about to disappoint you. You see, I really do I think that the people, more than the location, more than the restaurants, more than the quirkiness, make it so. that could be done better in Gulfport, its still wonderful. Yes, some of the properties could look a lot better and no, our beach isnt on par with the barrier island beaches. Some Thursdays you love me and some Thursdays you hate me and some weeks we all love each other and some weeks we all hate each other. But were all tied to each other, bound by an invisible thread of shared experiences and community. We all may bicker, but at the end of the day we lean on one another. Take, for example, that unpleasantness when St. Pete Gulfportians for crime on 49th Street. The week before it happened, a resident criticized Gulfport Councilman Dan Liedtke (for an unrelated matter) in a meeting, stopping only at the mayors insistence. When Councilman Liedtke later responded Gulfportians, that same woman stood again to thank him, and I believe she meant it. Its like this: I can say whatever I want about my family, but that doesnt mean you can say it. Gulfports the same way: everyone in Gulfport knows, on some level, that the entire citys in this together. Gulfports making it through tough times and looking towards better things, and, at the end of the day, its because of who the city is. Family. Contact Cathy Salustri at CathySalustri@theGabber.com.

46 Gabber September 13 September 19, 2012 Oliver was among a colony of 17 stray cats that was rescued this summer. His eyes were so infected that they could not be saved. This 5-month old sweetheart loves to give kisses and rub his head against your face. Oliver needs to be adopted with his sister, Olivia who serves as his eyes watching over him and guiding him. While Oliver is reserved, Olivia is very outgoing and mischievous. Both have glossy black coats and are completely vetted. by calling foster mom Sue at 727-504-2343. Save Our Strays Belle is a 2 year old, 53 lb female Rottie mix. This gal is petite for her breed and full of love. Belle recently had a litter of pups and is now ready for a new home herself.

Call 727-328-7738 or visit www.petpalanimalshelter.com. Pet Pal Animal Shelter By Matthew Margolis Right Idea, Wrong Dog Picture it: A family of six goes to the shelter looking for a dog. They choose an older dog because they dont want to deal with puppy issues. Back at home, right off the bat, they are confronted with food aggression and growling. wants to return the dog to the shelter before someone gets hurt. Dad wants to keep the dog and teach his kids that dogs arent lamps that you return if they dont work as expected. The kids love the dog just as he is and want to keep him. At this point in the game, everyones wrong. They cant keep the dog without professional intervention. This dog, in his current state, needs the help of a trainer or behaviorist who specializes in aggression. That said, training always helps, but it isnt a guaranteed cure. Returning the dog to the shelter is an option, but its not ideal. Shelter animals face tough odds getting adopted once. Twice? And after being returned due to aggression? Doesnt bode well for the dog. Keeping the dog and working with him to manage the aggression is also an option. But its not one most lawyers, doctors, vets, animal control with kids in the house. The best option for all involved is a creative version of both. First, enlist a professional trainer who understands aggression and has had success controlling it -stat. There are also trainers who do board and train. Its typically more expensive, but it serves the dual purpose of getting the dogs behavior under professional management and getting the dog away from the kids. networking the dog. Rescue groups with their networks of volunteers may be able to locate a dog-savvy foster home without kids, giving the dog a temporary home until something permanent can be found. When they dont have space readily available, some of these groups have outreach programs, which essentially turn you into the dogs foster family while they network the dog on their site, at their adoption events and on online services such as PetFinder. There are also sanctuaries of last resort, such as Best Friends Animal Society. So get your Google going, and dont rule anything out. Whatever you do, dont make the mistake of assuming that because a dog has behavior problems no one will ever want him. There are thousands of dog lovers out there who love a challenge. There are legions of professionals who prefer a project to an easy dog. There is help to be found. These folks made a mistake. They went to a shelter not knowing how to choose the right dog for them, and they chose wrong. They arent bad people. The dog isnt a bad dog. Its chance to teach their kids what really matters: Everyone makes mistakes. The answer isnt to live with it. The answer is to take responsibility, move on, and do better next time.

Gabber September 13 September 20, 2012 47 Remembering 5201 Tangerine If you drive down Tangerine Avenue from 49th Street to 55th Street in Gulfport, you cannot miss the two-story building with the bright yellow vinyl siding on the The building, now being refurbished into a single family residence, was the home of my dad John R. Junior Bowen and mom Margaret, from the late 1930s until 1955, with interruptions due to dads joined the family in 1940, my brother Gary in 1945, and my sister Joyce in 1952. and my father ran the grocery store, Bowens Market, on dad purchased the building, it was called Community Grocery. Running a grocery in a residential neighborhood was not without challenges. My mom remembers irate neighbors accusing my dad of deliberately blowing smoke from burning trash into their homes. The sight of the building brings back many fond memories for me. I learned how to work by windows, bagging potatoes, sacking groceries, stocking shelves and other chores as assigned. I can still hear my fathers admonitions to look for something that needs to be done and do it or keep a towel on your belt so youre ready to clean. He tried to teach me to butcher meat but I only made it to deboning the long beef bones. My least favorite job was getting up early on Saturday mornings to boil, peel and cut up the potatoes for the potato salad dad made for the deli section. By doing chores my allowance was bumped up to ten dollars a week! I enjoyed riding with my dad to the Tampa docks about once a week to purchase bananas off the boats from the Gulf or freshly made authentic Cuban bread from the bakery to make the everpopular Cuban sandwiches. brother Gary and I had was access to the soft drink container downstairs. We would help ourselves to a bottle; then, holding them behind our backs return upstairs to ask dad if we could have a soda. I am positive he was never fooled by this technique but he said yesmore often than not. Often I would bounce baseballs, or rubber balls, against the side of the building until dad could stand the sound no longer and yell out the side door to knock it off. Once, my brother, in the heat of a hand axe at me and missed my head by inches but stuck in the wooden frame of that year old. Using small, hard, unripe guavas to throw and trash can lids for shields we fought those battles for hours. My great grandfather, Alonso Bowen, used to sit on the wood benches in front of the store and tease the passing young women by picking up the hems of their skirts with his cane. My father was a hard worker with a big heart. He often let his customers take food on credit and many times over the years, payment never came. In the early years of owning the store, he could not afford a cash register and would check out customer purchases using a stubby lead pencil and writing each price on the bag, still folded, and very rapidly totaling head. One day I heard dad call out Maggie! his pet name for my mother, from the bottom of the inside stairs. When we came to the top of the stairs, there was dad at the bottom with his hand wrapped in a bloody towel. He had ground off the tip of his middle meat grinder. With my mom minding the store, he drove himself to Mound Park Hospital (now Bayfront Hospital) in St. Petersburg for medical attention and came home with a shorter us the woman waiting for him to grind some sirloin for her almost fainted at the sight of his bloody hand. True to form, he told her the ground meat would be left without it. John Bowen loved people and liked to joke with the men and tease the women. One of his favorites to a young woman was, Are your eyes bothering you? me. Corny, yes, but over the years he compiled a repertoire of these which he used until his death. Our family called them his corn. repeating one of them but not nearly with the success my dad enjoyed. On the SW corner of the building, my uncle, Kendall Bowen, built a metal stairway with a landing at the top just outside the front door. From that landing, with my Brownie Hawkeye, I shot a photo of one of the streetcar runs to the Gulfport Casino on its last day of service. Those years at 5201 Tangerine form a big chunk of my favorite childhood memories. I want to thank Lynne Brown of the Gulfport Historical Museum for her assistance in writing this article. I encourage you to visit the newly revamped displays in the Museum at 5301 28th Avenue South in Gulfport.

48 Gabber September 13 September 19, 2012 By Robert J. Myers, Esq. What are Health Care Surrogates and Living Wills? A thoughtfully prepared disability plan should cover who should handle a disabled persons health care matters as well as their property management issues. After all, health care matters are of monumental importance because of their deeply personal character and the consequences those decisions might have on the persons length and quality of life. The best way to avoid a guardian being appointed by the court to make these health care decisions is to designate a Health Care Surrogate. The Health Care Surrogate should be in a good position to use substituted judgement for the disabled person, the principal, and thus should have a solid grasp of the disabled persons attitudes, the quality of satisfactory, and his or her religious beliefs and philosophy of life. The in placing these important judgments into the hands of the Health Care Surrogate. A competent person has the right to refuse medical treatment for any reason whatsoever, even if that refusal will result to an otherwise preventable death. But what happens if that person is unable to communicate his or her wishes? A living will goes into effect if a person falls into a condition where recovery is almost impossible. It is a set of written instructions stating an individuals desire not to be kept alive through the use of medical technology when that individual is in a terminal condition and incapable of giving informed consent or refusal for further treatment. It also appoints someone to make such decisions on that persons behalf. A living will is one of the most important estate preservation techniques available to the average shown that a large portion of all health care costs in the United States are incurred in the last few days of a persons life. The cost burdens to the family members of individuals in terminal conditions are also considerable. Many families are forced to spend substantial amounts of their income and savings in order to medically prolong the lives of their loved ones for just a few days. St. Petersburg, Florida.
