Gabber October 18 October 24, 2012 11 LettersProtect the Pets Dear Editor: Re: Hard Candy (Oct. 11,2012 edition). I just wanted to say thanks for having the guts to say what you did. I just moved to Gulfport I'm a vet tech and have fostered over 100 animals in my life but never could let it get that bad, though I do "understand" how it happens. When friends, neighbors and total strangers will guilt trip you into taking in more and more. Some people have a hard time saying no. I was once like that until I found myself never going out as I was spending 3-4 hours a day I was shocked to hear of the negligence of the SPCA and local enforcement regarding this and the other case you mentioned regarding the boat dog. Too bad we can't start a more effective neighborhood watch focusing on animal safety.Madison MacLeod City of South Pasadena, Florida Notice of General Election and Qualifying Period The City of South Pasadena, Florida, will hold a municipal election on Tuesday, March 12, 2013 for the election of a Mayor.

26 Gabber October 18 October 24, 2012 By Holiday Mathis A cycle of soul searching begins with the suns transit into Scorpio turning the energy inward. With isnt always glistening like jewels and gold. You may not even realize youve hit on something valuable until years later. The quest for meaning becomes a reward in and of itself. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). It takes to give the gift of freedom to others. You truly want to see your loved ones happy, so this is easy for you this week. Youll show your love by encouraging a loved one to pursue an individual path that may or may not include you. This will come back to you in a positive way. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). What happens wont matter nearly as much as who is involved. Make people your priority -not activities, money or productivity. This will be a challenge as the sun shifts into your sign, and its a challenge to take seriously. Your work will always be there, but the people around you will change and grow and move. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Beware of the person who never seems to make mistakes. This is in no way a good sign, as it indicates a tendency to cover up or a resistance to risk. For happiness and success, strive to be around real people who openly discuss mistakes and invite others to help them come up with solutions. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You are a touchstone in the lives of others. Theres no need to drum other than what comes naturally. Loved ones appreciate you for who you are: a solid, consistent person. They count on you to behave in the same way with the same attitude day after day. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). With an open mind, you could be the one to come up with a brilliant solution to whatever ails people. Youll have to reject convention, though. Also, dont believe what you hear, especially if its the same thing youve been hearing for years now. Times are different, and youre different, too. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The routine that used to support your productivity is no longer effective. You feel driven to establish a new way of working that makes sense in your current life. In all things ask, What is the purpose? With this question as a guiding principle, you change. ARIES (March 21-April 19). Youll add new skills to your bag. Keep in mind that negativity has a disorienting effect on your learning process, and choose teachers who radiate a positive attitude. You need to be encouraged. One or two nice comments arent nearly enough. Find the generous spirits who will give you more. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Adults, amused by youths idealistic point of view, like to ask children what they want to be when they grow up. Ask the same question of yourself, and you might be surprised by your answer. This week shows you as wide-eyed and hopeful as you were many years ago. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Theres much you can learn on the Internet, but its the organization and application of information that will move you forward. An accumulation of facts is not the same thing as knowledge. This week youll needed to make a training process complete. CANCER (June 22-July 22). People awareness of their attitude, but youre different from most. You know what you want to project and measure it against what you are projecting. You make conscious adjustments if necessary to ensure that youre radiating the mood of your choosing. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). While of life that you dont have to think about how youre doing, it doesnt always work that way. Objectivity is necessary for your growth. A bit of reminds you to pull your shoulders back and watch how people treat you differently. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). We live in a culture of labeling and diagnosing. Does everything have to have a name? This week youll be dealing with a situation that truly is hard to categorize, and it will be a waste of time to try. When you accept the way things are without calling it anything, youll respond to what is instead of what its named. This Week's Birthdays: Usually wary of circumstances beyond your control, this year youll be more laid back and ready for the thrill of adventure. Your open attitude leads to greater spiritual awareness. month, though you have no need of the validation. A private goal to improve will be your driving force. Youll make an important decision in December, and you wont look in March.

34 Gabber October 18 October 24, 2012 Somethin on my mind Somethin on my mindBy Bill Northr op B_Northr op@theGabber. com The Benghazi Apologists I know the election is about the jobs, Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security, impressions from debates, and, yes, Big Bird and other stupid things, but the real world has a way of crashing in. And that real world is the world of jihadism and the war we (all but the Obama compatriots) call terrorists all over the world. And nothing was more realistic than the murders of our ambassador to Libya and three other Americans in the consulate in Benghazi on September 11, 2012. But equally unrealistic and untruthful was the handling, before and after, of the coordinated terrorist attack by the Obama administration. Not only was the ambassador and his staff left woefully unprotected, but there were ample warnings before the attack as well as requests from the embassy for additional protection. Despite intelligence to the contrary, the administration insisted for days that the Benghazi attack was caused by a half-baked anti-Mohammed video that has wobbled around YouTube since July. The attack was a spontaneous street demonstration that turned ugly, the administration said. It sent out its top "they're speaking for us" people to numerous talk shows to push the "spontaneous" line. That in spite of the the Libyan government's declaration from the very beginning that this was an Al-Queda attack. Worse, afterward, President Obama treated this as a minor event. "A bump in the road", he called it. Unfortunately, the "bumps" were the bodies of Ambassador Stevens, who weren't even assigned to the ambassador. Obama had more important things to do like a fund raising event, or appearances on popular TV shows. It was easier to sic the PR attack dogs on Gov. Romney for daring to criticize the U.S. Embassy's video apology. The aftermath wasn't any better. No in the aftermath. It was a CNN reporter who retrieved Ambassador Steven's diary that showed he was concerned for his own safety. Other sensitive documents were rescued by other media people and the FBI didn't arrive for weeks after. In the interim, the mother of the State Department staffer can't get a response from our government as to how he died in spite of the fact that an autopsy has already been completed. Even conceding that the video caused "the Arab street" demonstrations in Egypt and other Muslim countries around the world, it is a stretch of credibility to believe that everything was spontaneous, and not contrived nor coordinated by terrorist Muslim forces allied against us. I read, privately, a dispatch sent from the Libyan Embassy on July 9 approved by ambassador Stevens, outlining the deteriorating security of various organized violent groups, and the embassy's concern about the reduction of security by the U.S. Yes, you read that right. The State Department was systematically reducing security even as the in spite of requests from the Libyan Embassy for more security. Did President Obama know about the dispatch? Probably not directly. It was not passed on to the White House. However, his security about the deteriorating conditions in Libya and elsewhere and maybe even about the video and the potential attacks. This was not the fault of the intelligence community but the administration's inability or refusal to act upon the information. The administration is willing to blame the State Department as if they aren't a part of the administration. Instead of dealing with the situation the Obama administration has spent its energy apologizing for the antiMohammed video, even arresting its producer on some sort of probation violation. As an aside, there was no similar condemnation of the "Piss Christ" ( yes, that's the name of the "art" piece) currently on display in New York. What is apparent is that the Obama administration regards the Benghazi horror as an irritant and distraction from the presidential campaign, and a direct and irritating contradiction that all's right between world. If we just wouldn't call the time negotiating with them and requiring the people of the U.S. to understand them better and. Whats on your mind? Email your opinion to: B_Northrop@theGabber.com

BUTCH, a longtime Treasure Island resident and the current District 2 city commissioner, known widely for his love of his city, died Monday, October 8, 2012. Irving S. Butch Ellsworth died at Tampa General Hospital after a heart attack September 19, 2012. He was 66 years old. Treasure Island Mayor Bob Minning said, We will deeply miss his insights and dedication to the betterment of our city. Many thanks, Butch, for all you have done." Most locals knew Butch as the Johns Pass Marina manager for 19 years, and of the Treasure Island Yacht and Tennis Club. Ellsworth also served three terms on the Treasure Island City Commission (1993 to 2004) and just recently returned to public service as District 2 city commissioner in March 2012. Butch lived in the same Isle of Palms home since 1959. He was married to his wife Cherie for 25 years. A native of WinstonSalem, North Carolina, he moved to Treasure Island in 1954. A U.S. Army Vietnam veteran, Ellsworth engineer on Chinook helicopters and was awarded the Bronze Star and air medal with clusters. In his years as a president of the Treasure Island Chamber of Commerce and CEO of the chamber, Ellsworth championed community and commerce. Ellsworth was best known for organizing the Tastes of Treasure Island and his work with Treasure Island Charities. As commissioner, Butch helped visioning process in 1998, which downtown redevelopment plan. His years as a former competitive race boat driver and knowledge of the offshore waters made Ellsworth truly one of the old salts of Treasure Island. The community feels the deep and profound sense of loss in having Butch leave us too soon. As Butch would probably agree (a quote from someone who also knew a thing or two about navigating waters): Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Mark Twain. Bon voyage, Butch. Funeral and memorial service plans are pending. Details regarding those plans will be available as they are received.

Lee Williams & Son Gulfport Chapel, www.rlwilliams. com. ELLSWORTH, IRVING S. BUTCH, a longtime Treasure Island resident and the current District 2 city commissioner, known widely for his love of his city, died Monday, October 8, 2012. Irving S. Butch Ellsworth died at Tampa General Hospital after a heart attack September 19, 2012. He was 66 years old. Treasure Island Mayor Bob Minning said, We will deeply miss his insights and dedication to the betterment of our city. Many thanks, Butch, for all you have done." Most locals knew Butch as the Johns Pass Marina manager for 19 years, and of the Treasure Island Yacht and Tennis Club. Ellsworth also served three terms on the Treasure Island City Commission (1993 to 2004) and just recently returned to public service as District 2 city commissioner in March 2012. Butch lived in the same Isle of Palms home since 1959. He was married to his wife Cherie for 25 years. A native of WinstonSalem, North Carolina, he moved to Treasure Island in 1954. A U.S. Army Vietnam veteran, Ellsworth engineer on Chinook helicopters and was awarded the Bronze Star and air medal with clusters. In his years as a president of the Treasure Island Chamber of Commerce and CEO of the chamber, Ellsworth championed community and commerce. Ellsworth was best known for organizing the Tastes of Treasure Island and his work with Treasure Island Charities. As commissioner, Butch helped visioning process in 1998, which downtown redevelopment plan. His years as a former competitive race boat driver and knowledge of the offshore waters made Ellsworth truly one of the old salts of Treasure Island. The community feels the deep and profound sense of loss in having Butch leave us too soon. As Butch would probably agree (a quote from someone who also knew a thing or two about navigating waters): Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Mark Twain. Bon voyage, Butch. Funeral and memorial service plans are pending. Details regarding those plans will be available as they are received.

How to Make Sure that Decisions will be Made in Your Best Interest In making decisions about potential sources of funding for health care, you should consider certain "protective services." These become important if you ever become unable to handle your own affairs, due to physical or mental incapacity. Unless proper legal action is taken in advance, your family may be unable to act on your behalf should the need arise. PROBLEMS WITH JOINT OWNERSHIP Joint ownership is often used to give legal authority to another peradd your daughter's name to your account, thinking you've solved variproblems, such as avoiding probate or ensuring you will be taken care of. But joint ownership may not solve some problems, and could even create others. First, the joint owner may be able to withdraw 100% of the assets held in joint name. Second, both joint owners' signatures are usually required anyway to sell or liquidate assets. In addition, your assets may become subject to claims by your children's creditors. REVOCABLE LIVING TRUSTS One strategy you should consider is establishing a revocable living trust, which would hold title to your assets. Such a trust not only offers estate planning advantages, such as avoiding probate, but also ensures that a affairs in the event of your incapacity. the only thing to consider in the event of incapacity. You may need someone else to step in and make personal decisions regarding your health care or the maintenance of property you own. In addition, a trust may not be appropriate, depending on the amount of assets you own. Since joint ownership is obviously not the ideal solution and trust may not be for everyone, are there other ways to plan for the possibility of you incapacity? Generally, there are three other ways you can give legal authority to another person: Guardianship Conservatorship Durable power of attorney Of these three, the most effective is a durable power of attorney.

Gabber October 18 October 24, 2012 43 By Cathy Salustri Brenna Henderson looks like your average teenager. The Osceola Fundamental sophomore high school student turns 17 in May. She goes to the Casino for swing dances with her boyfriend, and theyll both go to homecoming in a few weeks. She watches TV. She hangs out with her friends. Shes also tried to save over 50 small animals. Shes helped over 50 birds, squirrels, chipmunks and snakes when they were injured. Some make it; some dont. Some go to the bird sanctuary, some go back into the wild. This is the story of how one teenager took time out from football games, boyfriend, and hanging out with her friends to help Buster the squirrel. Its not just about Buster; its about Brenna and how her huge soft spot for wild animals makes her one of Gulfports Community Treasures. Spoiler alert: this story doesnt have a great ending. About a month ago, Brennas parents had gone out for the night. She was home alone when she heard a knock. Her two adult neighbors stood there, with a tiny squirrel wrapped in a towel. My cat had him in his mouth, one neighbor said, and asked if she could help that their cat had killed the other squirrel babies in the nest. I didnt see him breathing, Brenna remembered. I didnt know if I had to call dad and ask permission, but then I was like, We do this all the time so I spread towels on the bed. Thats when she was sure the squirrel was still alive she could see him breathing, but he couldnt seem to move his back legs. I think maybe he [the cat] bit down hard enough, maybe to fracture a little bit of bone, she said. Not sure what to do found some almond milk and called her parents to ask where they kept the eye-dropper. Her dad asked why, and when she told him, he said he was a little surprised that his adult neighbors would bring a teenage girl a baby squirrel, but he added that he was proud that they knew his daughter would know what to do. Brenna named the squirrel Buster. She and her dad brought Buster to a small animal vet, who told them they could leave the squirrel there but that he would likely euthanize him. The vet told him that Buster didnt appear to have any pain or distress, so they took Buster back home. Gulfportian Beth Armstrong donated a cage, and Brenna and her parents set Buster up in a squirrel condo, complete with heating pad, stuffed monkey, and a small bolster pillow on which they hoped Buster would one day climb. Pretty soon, Buster started to go to the bathroom which, huge sign that he was doing OK. All systems seemed functioning properly. Buster graduated to nuts, although Brenna still fed him almond milk before and after school. Taking a cue from her grandmother, who also helped a cornucopia of small creatures, Brenna started either side of Busters spine to stimulate the blood paraplegic squirrel would start to move his legs. The real breakthrough, however, came when Tucker, the family dog adopted at a Gulfport Get Rescued event, came over when Brenna had Buster out of his squirrel condo one night. Brenna said of interest in the squirrel, but this time he came over and, under Brenna and her familys watchful eye, started gently licking Busters hind legs. cat attack, Buster moved his back legs. He moves his legs more every day, Brenna said as Buster climbed up her arm Friday afternoon. By Friday, Buster started trying to curl his back paws around things. Brenna had high hopes for Buster, but part of her didnt want to see him go. She and her dad found a licensed wildlife rehabilitation rehabilitation specialist in Plant City, one who focused on squirrels. Buster was squirrel rescuebound as soon as he healed a little more. Lovely Litas would help prepare Buster for release into the wild if he regained full use of his legs. I dont want to see him go, Brenna said, putting Buster back in his cage. But we dont have a license. Unfortunately, thats where Busters story ended. On Sunday afternoon, Buster stopped moving. According to her parents, Brenna took it better than they did. Brenna says each of her parents blame themselves. She also says that she wont stop trying to help animals. to die, she says, because of the way the animals come to her but you take them in and try to make them feel as comfortable as possible and not put them in any more distress. Brenna thinks she might like to be a veterinarian, or work with animal rescue programs. She tried to volunteer at a shelter, but they told her she had to wait until she was 18. I really love doing it. I like the satisfaction of helping other animals, even if they have a low chance of living, she says. They may not have too, too long, but they do have some life left, and theyre not just going to sit and decay. Still, though, when a baby squirrel dies, especially after she spends two months hoping against all odds that hell make it, watching him get a little better every day, it hurts. She sums it up as only a teenager will: It feels like crap, she says. Do you know a Community Treasure? Tell us about it at News@theGabber.com. Brenna Henderson

Gabber October 18 October 24, 2012 47 In or Out? At times, we've struggled to keep the of our people. We've made our share of mistakes, and there are times when our actions around the world have not lived up to our best intentions. Barack Obama Sometimes you think youre grabbing a gecko and you end up yanking on a dragons tail. This, I suspect, was the case Tuesday night when Gulfport resident Denise Wimmer-Lowe stood and suggested that Gulfport put some teeth behind its Human Rights Ordinance. Oh, she said it more pleasantly than that, but thats the gist of her intent. Given her calm tone, logical arguments, and respectful demeanor, whats the problem? She was talking about the Boy Scouts, the 102-yearold group that teaches young boys camp without fear and, as its web site boasts, build character. Well, as long as you arent gay. If youre a little boy who happens to like boys instead of girls, this American institution wants nothing to do with you. Thats not hearsay; the Boy Scouts of America proclaims its stance loudly. Clearly. Proudly. If youre gay, they not only dont want you, they wont have you. If your mom or dads gay, they cant be a den mother or pack leader. Denise pointed out that Gulfport passed a Human Rights Ordinance (HRO) in 2005. Section 26.40 city should have full and equal enjoyment of the goods, services, facilities, privileges, advantages, and accommodations of any educational institution or place of public accommodation... without discrimination because of age, race, color, religion, national origin, ancestry, disability, marital status, public accommodation to include public halls. Which includes Scout hall. You know, the building named after the Boy Scouts. The building that, when an architect deemed it not worth saving, occupied almost every council meeting for long enough that I once threatened in jest torch the damn things just to stop the debate. (Note: never make that joke in front of the police chief.) Gulfport holds scouting dear to its heart. Unfortunately, in doing so, weve sent the message that you cant discriminate... unless its against kids. Nice one, Gulfport. In all fairness, I dont think anyone myself included, Im ashamed to say considered that before. Denise merely pointed out a case of institutionalized discrimination, one thats so ingrained in Gulfports very see it. Yes, we knew the Boy Scouts didnt allow gay kids or parents, but somehow we never made that association with our own troop. That includes Sea Scouts, too, I guess. Wow, this sucks. I wish I could say it more eloquently. I think the idea of Scouting is great I was never a Scout, but I wanted to be. I wanted merit badges. I wanted to learn to bait a hook and go camping and build friends got his Eagle Scout in high school, I thought it was the coolest thing. Heres the rub: it doesnt matter how much I think the Boy Scouts offer kids something great. It doesnt matter if you think being gay is an aberration. It doesnt matter if you march in Pride or think gay people will burn in hell. It doesnt matter if you think its hard enough to be a gay kid without being shunned for being honest with yourself, too. It doesnt matter that its just damn cruel to ban a kid for any reason from just trying to take part in something thats an American tradition. It doesnt matter that the group rejects volunteers who happen None of any of this matters. Not Denises points, not my beliefs. Not even yours. What matters is logic. What matters is the law. Denise is right, in my opinion on a moral ground but, more germane to this argument, shes right based on Gulfports own laws. Our laws say you cant discriminate against gay people. The Scouts openly and in writing discriminate against gay people and their children. Allowing the Scouts to meet on city property boils down to city-endorsed discrimination in a city so proud of itself for passing the HRO and leading the charge with the Domestic Partnership Registry. Like I said, wow. Denise, as I said, approached the council with respect. She didnt yell, insult, or condescend. On the Gabbers Facebook page, we asked readers what they thought. Within moments people failed to show her the same courtesy, calling her hateful and a nutcase. For asking the city to stop allowing a group to illegally discriminate against kids. In an interesting turn of events, my high school Eagle Scout friend? When I saw him a few years later, hed come out of the closet. He seemed happy, and I was happy for him. It had to be hard to live a lie for so long. Now, about Gulfport what about you? You passed the HRO. You said it was illegal to discriminate against gay people. Now that Denise brought this (understandable) oversight to councils attention, what will you choose to do about it? Are you in or out, Council? Contact Cathy Salustri at CathySalustri@theGabber.com.
