She played for tips, which all went for a friend doing the Komen walk, an event that raises money for the Susan G. Komen breast cancer walk. Farewell to Tucker Tucker, the gentle Welsh Springer Spaniel who started life as a neglected kennel dog and found a loving home with St. Pete Beach residents Kathleen and Jim Johnson, has died. He was 13. Tucker played an active, integral role in the St. Pete Beach Librarys childrens program, once weekly showing up to allow young readers to practice reading by reading aloud to him. Tucker also worked as a therapy dog at the St. Petersburg Ronald McDonald House and other kids-based organizations. He began his literary career six years ago, when his human companion, Kathleen Johnson, asked the youth librarian See Tucker, page 3 The dog is a gentleman; I hope to go to his heaven, not mans. Mark TwainBeauty Brought to Light: Gulfport Artist Mel LoweBy Cathy Salustri Were all self-conscious. Every woman I know is self-conscious, including me, Mel Lowe says as she sits cross-legged in front of her photographs. These were meant for themselves. Mel, a tiny blonde with curly hair and big blue eyes, says that she has one eye smaller than the other, proof that no matter how beautiful a woman, she still has something she doesnt like about her body. Enter Mels work. Not her vocation thats waiting on people at Stellas next door to Domain, where her art hangs in the Adult Erotica section. Her work, stunning black and white photographs of women insecurity. This one we call it Redemption she works really hard on her body and she was amazed at how these prints came out, Mel says, indicating a seductively posed lithe woman. Every person Ive taken pictures of has self esteem or body issues. Mel takes pictures of weddings and pregnant women and food and babies (her photos of the food at Stellas catapulted her into a job there), but the black and white prints in Domain are a different sort of work, See Mel Lowe, page 37

10 Gabber September 20 September 26, 2012 LettersDog Stations Dear Editor walking with my dog in downtown Gulfport this past third Saturday evening art walk. It was pleasant and vibrant as always, however I did observe something regarding our community which I want to bring to your attention. I was walking on the sidewalk toward the Casino among a large number of visitors who were attending what appeared to be a rather dressy event at the casino as well as art walk visitors. At one point, a lady in a beautiful black dress and nice high heels and her beau, also dressed very leather shoes, walked onto the grass area that borders said sidewalk to allow oncoming people to pass. In this gesture of politeness, they stepped right into a big pile of dog waste located on the grass. I had a plastic "poop bag" on me and as I fetched said waste I noticed several other "piles" in the grass area next to the public sidewalk. (Note, this is the sidewalk closest to the street, and not along the beach where there is often dressed up foot or to one of our lovely restaurants). Truthfully my meager bag could not hold the amount of waste that was along this path. We can all do better to pick up after our dogs to keep Gulfport pet friendly and also the welcoming place we want it to be. In addition, I would like to suggest that the city consider adding attractive "poop station" stands along well traveled areas of dog walking throughout the downtown area. Such an effort would have clear signs about picking up after your dog, the ready availability of dog waste bags and a covered Car ol yn We bber D .O General PracticeFor an appointment call 727-345-63377035 First Av enue South, St. P etersb urg / Ser ving Gulfpor t Area fo r 12 Y earsW ebber P rimeCare Medical Ce nter is pleased to announce their aliation with V eriMed IP A and will now be Ve riMed Healthgroup Pa sadenaWe Accept We llcare Medicare Univ ersal Healthcare Fr eedom Health, Optimum Healthcare Inc.

Such efforts have been successful in other places, in apartment communities and in parks. I believe that we can all be encouraged to do the right thing by our animals and our lovely city and that a little effort and slight expense on the part of the city would go a long way toward improving the pet friendly and welcoming nature of our community. Perhaps a local artist would want to donate a drawing of a dog squatting with a big red arrow that alerts walkers to the fact that there are bags right here! I believe we could add to the present fun attribute to "Keep Gulfport Weird" with a campaign encouraging "Keep Gulfport Waste Free." (or in the You know there would also be an opportunity to have advertisers sponsor the "poop stations" with their name on the placard and contributions to keep plastic bags readily available and perhaps having that sponsor clean them out daily.

Gabber September 20 September 26, 2012 15 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. Evening and weekend appointments are available.Sanders La w, P .A. 6702 Gulf Blv d.

28 Gabber September 20 September 26, 2012 By Holiday Mathis sun. The scales represent justice for all. Even the day and night want to be equalized. This solar transit is also marked by beauty, as Libra is one of the most artistic and visually astute signs of the zodiac. Well see our environment with new eyes this week, noting how we might increase the fabulous factor or turn up the functionality. The best changes will do both. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Last with admiring souls clamoring for your attention. Then suddenly the sun left your party and took the disco ball, too. Every celebration has to end eventually. You may be happy for the break now. Take stock of all that has happened in recent history, and organize the photos. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You may be inexplicably drawn to someone older than you, as you are subconsciously feeling mature Saturn slowly chugging through your realm of the sky. Is your attraction more to do with love or learning? Either way, theres something to gain from relating to those who have been there, done that and lived to tell. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). The passionate energy of Mars in your sign is fueling a chase. Whether you approach the challenge strategically or let your innate strengths lead you on an instinctual journey, the thrill will be in the approach. Once the prize is attained, the excitement is over. So revel in the action as it unfolds this week. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). An unsystematic life takes too much effort. Thats why you create repeat in order to maintain a level of functionality in your world. You are still running a certain part of your life without rhyme or reason. This week, youll introduce some much needed structure to the scene. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Showing someone how awesome you are will not make that person like you more, and it may have the opposite result. What people love is when you can reveal to them how awesome they are -something you do well this week. You shine a light on the internal riches of others. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Even though you are usually striving to improve yourself, your environment or the world at large, there are times when its best not to. A perpetual state of self-improvement can be exhausting and counterproductive. Right now, its best to accept what is and, for the time being, decide that its absolutely good enough. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Youll change your experience of another person after being introduced to another piece of this persons life. Its like the lighting has shifted. Your sign mate Albert Einstein suggested that reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one. With illusions, lighting can be crucial. ARIES (March 21-April 19). Your thoughts return to that individual who doesnt consistently return your calls, acknowledge your contributions or support your selfesteem. This person makes you work for love and approval. Maybe youre a better person for the effort, but ultimately, you should be the one who determines your value. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Your original ideas are often stellar, but youve also learned to respect the advice of others. This week, the same wisdom will be expressed through your suspicions that its just the information that could catapult you into a new realm of accomplishment should you choose to act on it. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Singing secretly and all alone feels cathartic. Singing in front of people, should you be brave enough to do it, is a different experience, one in which your feelings are laid bare. You dont have to be musically talented to consider this an option this week. There is a feeling you want to express, and express it you will. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Have you ever forgiven someone so thoroughly that you really did forget the transgression occurred at all? Its easier to do when the transgression in question truly had little impact or no offense was taken. Youll have fewer rules for yourself and others this week, consciously striving to love unconditionally. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). The activities you choose will vary, but your quest remains. Whether baking the most delectable cake you have ever made, selling a product with extreme elegance or achieving top ranking in an online video game, your desire to do your very best will guide you. Mastery is mastery no matter how you focus this intention. This Week's Birthdays express yourself well and often over the next seven weeks. This puts you in hot water at times, but ultimately, people will know you for who you really are, and youll get to live in a more authentic way. Artistic or the year is over. The new year brings a happy partnership that works in both a business and personal context. A mix of salesmanship and creativity brings extra money in December, May and June.

32 Gabber September 20 September 26, 2012 Somethin on my mind Somethin on my mindBy Bill Northr op B_Northr op@theGabber. com Food, Glorious Food Carrie Nation where are you? Dead, woman who put words into action in For starters, she took rocks and threw them at the bottles in taverns and saloons. Then, reportedly at the suggestion of her husband, she started using a hatchet. Much more effective. She got arrested a lot and prohibition was voted in anyway. Guess it worked. Well, we have another cause for her today. No, not alcohol and drugs. kinds of food are killing us, but not quickly enough to be cost effective. and the country, particularly the U.S. and state and city treasuries, are issue and our First Lady said so. Mayor, Michael Bloomberg, leader of 10 million people, instituted laws to combat fatness and save our bodies and our dollars. Henceforth, no one may sell (or buy) 16 oz. containers of soda pop, or, more generally put, large sugary drinks, in that City. could come in. New York City now has laws. So should the rest of the country. To get the necessary national attention, a new Carrie Nation could take her hatchet into every fast food restaurant, grocery store, deli, car or truck stop, or recreational center and such container displays or evil drink dispenserswhack! Think of the publicity. Hopefully, this new Carrie will be a pretty, reformed soft drink carry more weight (pun intended) and get away with more vandalism than a pot bellied, partially shaven, hairy, pig of a man. Of course, no self-respecting citizen concerned about the health of our nation should stop at sugary soft drinks. Those are only the surface foods that destroy our bodies. Almost every snack pop corn, potato chips, corn chips and so forth are packed with either sugar, salt, processed foods, not to mention chemicals of all sorts. Off with their packages. Since you can no longer in New York City donate food to a homeless shelter (true story) for fear of impregnating them with salt, fat or not enough As someone who observes a limited diet for health reasons, I can provide this list of "do not serve, offer, or eat the following non-desireable particularly including pizza, cheeses of almost any kind, processed bread products, all sugary drinks. It is fruits and veggies, veggies and fruits. Fish is good except for the mercury and poultry is acceptable in limited must be good for you. Think of what our new Carrie could do with that list. place settings. Plates of great slabs of moist, fat riddled beef, baked potatoes with bacon crumbles and dense, processed bread, rich, sugary desserts. Copious amounts of alcohol. Enter Carrie swinging her hatchet, saving bodies and souls, saving the nation. No longer the "Food, Glorious Food" of the play "Oliver". Now it would be a glorious mess. Ah, so satisfying. Hopefully, in a less violent future, there will be new glorious food laws enforced by calm, but reassuringly needing hatchets. Ah, a double job opportunity. Limits on food portions from the grocery stores to the restaurants and delis. Limits on second helpings. Limits on single items. Think beyond, too. Mandatory community exercise mental and physical. And, then, we die. Whats on your mind? Email your opinion to: B_Northrop@theGabber.com

Gabber September 20 September 26, 2012 37 Mel Lowe, from front pageusing shadow and light to highlight a womans beauty. When the Boca Ciega High graduate started taking pictures well over a decade to school to sell insurance and give massages, but never taken a photography course. Its trial and error, she says of her work. I used to be in torture until I picked up Now she shoots with a 10-year-old digital camera, a well-loved Sony. Thats like a dream camera, she says when talking about the Nikon D7000. She prints her work at Reedy Photo in St. Petersburg. Im starting to use metallic paper, she says. It has miniscule crystals in the paper, and they pick up light. Most people wont know the difference, but it gives it extra shabang. She buys her frames and mats at Michaels, using coupons from the Sunday paper. Customers just give them to me, at work, because the regulars know about Mels photography. She pulls out her portfolio of work, a book of women. The ideas for each shoot start with the subjects, who approach Mel and ask her to take their photos. From there, she explains, its a collaborative process. Why do the women come to her? Every person Ive taken pictures of has self-esteem or body issues, she says. The women want the photos for themselves. Her portfolio and her work hanging in Domains gallery all reveal each womans beauty. The women, she notes, arent perfect, but they as do many women see their bodies more negatively than the rest of the world views them. She doesnt charge as much as she probably could for a photo session, because part of the joy in her work comes from seeing the delight on her subjects face when they see their photos. The women who come to her come to her because Mel sees something in them Beauty. Contact Cathy Salustri at CathySalusti@theGabber.com. Mel Lowe says shed love to shoot photographs of heavier women, but so far none have approached her. Her work focuses on bringing out each womans beauty.

40 Gabber September 20 September 26, 2012 By Robert J. Myers, Esq. What is Disclaimer of Interest? Disclaimer of interest, in the law of inheritance, wills and trusts, is a term that describes an attempt by a person to give up their legal right to under a will or through intestacy) or through a trust. A disclaimer of interest cannot be changed. There are a number of reasons why a person might wish to avoid an inheritance, particularly if the proceeds would only go to their creditors, or if it would drastically affect their income tax liabilities. Under the common law, a person who disclaimed their interest would be treated as though they had died before the trust or will came into effect. This was a sensible option if the disclaiming party was an heir by descent, whose own children would then take in his place and without the imposition of a gift tax. Disclaimer of interest is also called a renunciation. A disclaimer of interest must be complete, and not a partial disclaimer. Such a disclaimer can be made by a legal guardian on behalf of a person who lacks the capacity to make the disclaimer themselves, but Probate Court that the disclaimer is in the wards best interest. The disclaimer must be in writing and submitted to the Probate Court overseeing the administration of the estate within a legally specitwelve months after the death of the person from whom the disclaiming party stands to inherit, or twelve months after the creation of a trust be required in which the disclaiming party must swear that he or she has not received any compensation for the disclaimer. The disclaimer must also take place before the disclaimthe trust or inheritance. In addition to the more typical disclaimer under wills, an individual may also be able to disclaim his inplans. It may also apply to concurrent interests in real property that automatically transfer after death by operation of law rather than by the rules of inheritance (such as joint tenancies or tenancies by the entirety).
