He asked the Gabber to make this announcement on his behalf. Im ready to retire, the mayor said over breakfast at Nicks. I look at the past with so much love, how fortunate Ive been to be supported, and what the citizens gave me, [but] being very fair and reasonable about the future, I dont have the assurance quite yet that Im able to continue at the same energy level for three more years. Mayor Yakes, or Mayor Mike to many Gulfportians, said he has no pressing health issues but did say that the meetings he missed in recent history showed him that he must now slow his pace. See Yakes, page 7 Yakes retires after 22 years on Gulfport City Council.Beach Theatre Goes DarkBy Cathy Salustri After 73 years, the big screen at the Beach Theatre went dark last weekend. The France family cannot say when or if the theatre will reopen. Last Saturday night was supposed Horror Picture Show with the live cast, Interchangeable Parts, performing in front of the screen. A source close to the cast told the Gabber that Progress Energy (now Duke Energy) cut the power to the building before the showing, and the cast, although they had hoped to in the historic building, was unable to perform. While the Gabber could not reach owner Michael France for comment, locals have watched the soap opera play out for a few months. Corey merchants as well as patrons of a popular Corey bar, the Swigwam, recall police showing up while a locksmith changed the locks a few months ago. This reporter also witnessed the theatre remaining closed through advertised showtimes.

I miss a meeting, you might as well chop half of me away. [The missed meetings] were related to health. Im not on a golf course; Ive never passed up a meeting to go to a party. Im talking about normal aging, and responsibilities at home, along with health challenges, he said. The mayor, a widower in his late 60s, is currently raising a teenage boy and girl. His wife of 31 years, Darlene, died in the summer of 2008. She ran the mayors campaigns, helped raise the kids, and helped him with his day-to-day responsibilities. You know what? Ive learned how much Darlene did for me, he said. Things that she could do, that Im trying to do alone, its hard. Ive accepted that. Mayor Mike praised the council and council made his decision easier. Its so obvious to me that were headed in a good direction. Staff wise, were great. Politically, were getting stronger. What I like about the new council? Theyre involved, he said. He praised the council for its involvement with state government and the Florida League of Cities and said an effective council needs to spend time with the citizens. In order to make Tuesday nights succeed, you better be giving the other six days a lot of attention, he said. He also said he hopes the council remembers that no one person on council knows better than the residents. Im not elected to think for voters, he said. Im elected to represent the voters. term. He stopped short of endorsing a candidate for his successor, but he did offer that person the following advice: Be patient. Listen to the elected and all the residents. Thats the key: government for the people, by the people, he said. He also spoke of the need for patience at meetings. Patience has always been my hardest challenge, he admitted. Ive felt that when we have meetings of tension, if I lose it, then we would all go to hell that night and never be able to come back. It would be like the Christmas party that destroyed the company. He encouraged voters, when considering a new mayor, to ask the candidate the questions that determined why you voted for me. As for his tenure as Gulfports mayor? I am fortunate.Seniors Want to Sing!

Gabber November 22 November 28, 2012 11 LettersHonesty Dear Editor: Flying back from the cold north, at the Tampa airport I took a seat on the shuttle bus belonging to Mr. Norm Dickson who drove me to my condo in the Town Shores complex of Gulfport. I paid my fare with a hundred dollar bill, I thought. Later that day Mr. Dickson called and I got scared, was that bill counterfeit? But no, he said that there was another one so tightly pressed that we didn't notice and he wanted to return it. He came the next day and gave it to me. I thanked and rewarded him. And I wonder, how many would do likewise? Thank God for honest people.Mitch ValitzkyOperation Santa 2012 Its that time of year again! Santa is putting his list together for this year.

26 Gabber November 22 November 28, 2012 By Holiday Mathis The unpleasant arrangement of Mars and Uranus dissolves early in the week, and stressful events are soon overshadowed by more favorable aspects. In general, it will be easier to face feelings. New hope takes hold and brings with it a greater sense of control. Mercury with Saturn. Instead of reacting to life, its easier to pause, regain equilibrium and take action from a sense of calm. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). The proof isnt always in the pudding. Sometimes, for reasons beyond your control, the end result and solid effort that went into a task. But when you do the right thing, the satisfaction you derive from your action is pudding enough and CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You rightly feel that situations are made or broken by the level of points. It takes time to become masterful, but youre hard-pressed to think of a better way to spend the not only your contribution, but also your character. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You will be blessed with reliable sources. This is true partly because youve already been extremely discerning as to where you seek advice and help. You know better than to trust experience in your area. Your chosen advisers wont let you down. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Obstinance is its own obstacle. If you insist that theres only one way a task can be completed, youre sure to come across a blockage of that one path. But when youre open to different perspectives, such blocks are merely indicators to go around, over or under. ARIES (March 21-April 19). You know who is trustworthy. Even your own diary, if left unprotected, could your right to privacy, and youll control your image and reputation. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). People dont always behave nicely or respond in the expected way. But when people disappoint you, theres something to gain from the experience -namely, you develop tolerance. Tolerant people are happier, more energetic and more likely to change the world even, as they contribute to world peace. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Theres very little you could say about yourself now that wouldnt come across as bragging. Better to leave the commentary about you and your accomplishments to someone else. Youll be surprised at who sings your praises when you refuse to do so. You have more fans than you know. CANCER (June 22-July 22). This week your choices will have a favorable affect on a younger person. Youll make this person happy twice: easier and better, and then again when this person imitates your action and makes another persons life easier and better. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You can roam far without moving a muscle. Sometimes this doesnt serve you well. This week the daydreams that come at inappropriate times are a distraction that could hurt your focus your mind, you can rule your world. Make the effort. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Personal ambition has a way of limiting a persons experience. Your to include goals that encompass not only your own achievements but the achievements of others, as well. You by how many people it will touch. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Wanting a moment to end so you can get to the next one is a trap. There is no later. Everything happens now. So dont run from the uncomfortable mix of anticipation and apprehension in the air this week. Instead, take a breath and agree to feel it. The now moment is a gift; thats why its called the present. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). The weeks events will seem designed to highlight your individuality and style. Youll remain uniquely yourself. Youll teach others through your action. You wont teach them how to be you or do as you do. Instead, youll teach that its best for everyone to express a unique spirit. This Week's Birthdays: Within the next six weeks, youll change your mind about what you really want, and by the start of 2013, youll happily be pursuing a new made memorable by romantic scenarios. January brings creative when your work environment becomes healthier, possibly because of a personnel change. March brings a better balance of work and family. which leads to an important discovery.

With all thats going on in our economy, our nation -our world? You may be thinking thats the last thing youll be doing now during the holiday season, or anytime soon. If so, let me encourage you to think again. Now, of all times, we need to celebrate wherever and whenever possible. In their book, Why Good Things Happen to Good People (Broadway Books, 2007), authors Stephen Post and Julie Neimark tell us that celebration is one of the most important ways that we express gratitude. Celebration is gratitude in action, and celebration -like rest, seat belts and green leafy vegetables -is good for us! down in the dumps? Celebrate something or someone. The gratitude you feel as a result of celebrating others, or creation in general, will help you to be less materialistic and what life brings your way. Its a fact within our souls. Celebration is good for your health. The gratitude that wells up from the act of celebration has been studied The results prove that gratitude is strongly linked to emotional and of gratitude can shift the nervous system toward a calmer state. Celebration creates a circle of love. accomplishments of others, they that acts of gratitude encourage those around us, creating a circle of reciprocal love. Celebration moves us from fear to faith. Studies show that the most grateful people have often been experiences. Individuals who have overcome adversity are more optimistic and grateful than the average person. Celebration shifts us from tired of how good life really is cultivates that emotions work at lightening speed and often bypass reasoning. By cultivating gratitude, we encourage positive feelings that are almost instantaneous -feelings that are more powerful in their own way than even positive thoughts. Celebration heals. According to a recent study on organ donations, the more gratitude a recipient of an organ feels, the faster that persons recovery. There were 74 transplant recipients of either a heart, liver, lung, kidney or pancreas who participated in the study. Those recipients who expressed gratitude -felt physically better and functioned at a higher level than those who did not. Looking at the calendar, we will have three natural reasons to celebrate: Christmas, Hanukkah and New Years. So pull out all the stops. Celebrate! But dont let your celebrations end there. Look for every reason imaginable to celebrate: the last day of autumn, snowfall, the shortest day of the year, a childs progress report, the 100th day of the school year, milestones, important events. As you look at life through eyes of gratitude, you will discover many reasons to celebrate -no matter whats going on in the world. Never miss an opportunity to celebrate.

At least thats the conclusion of a Penn State study that found how people handle contemporary stress theyll pay a physical price for it later. Our research shows that how you react to what happens in your life today predicts your chronic health conditions 10 years in the future, independent of your current health and your future stress, said David Almeida, professor of human development and family studies. For example, if you have a lot of work to do today and you are really grumpy because of it, then you are more likely to suffer negative health consequences 10 years from now than someone who also has a lot of work to do today, but doesnt let it bother her. Almeida and colleagues surveyed participants in a long-term national study of health and wellbeing called MIDUS (Midlife in the United States Study). For eight consecutive nights, they asked 2,000 individuals what had happened to them in the previous 24 hours -how had they used their time, their moods, their physical health, productivity and any stressful events, including being child. They also collected saliva samples from the surveyed individuals at four different times on four of those eight days. From the saliva, they measured levels of the stress hormone, cortisol, then linked this information to MIDUS data about participants demographics, chronic health conditions, their personalities and social networks. The researchers did this in 1995 and again in 2005. who dwelled upon daily stressors were more likely to subsequently suffer ill health --especially pain, such as that related to arthritis, and people who didnt sweat the small stuff and moved on with their lives.

A personal representative is a person or entity that is appointed by the Probate Court to be the overseer of the administration of a deceased person's estate. A personal representative is required by the Probate Court to make sure that the deceased's estate is administered in accordance with Florida law. Generally, a personal representative is obligated to identify, accumulate and protect those assets which are part of the probate estate. This process is also known as the marshalling of probate assets. Because the personal representative has a duty to the to protect assets in the estate, this responsibility is court-supervised by Probate Court. A personal representative is required to publish a "Notice of Administration" in a newspaper of who the personal representative and attorney of the estate are as well as initiates the creditor claims period of ninety (90) days. The Notice of Administration also states the other papers relating to the estate. to the claims of creditors as well as defend lawsuits which arise against a deceased person's estate. Normally, a lawyer will be retained to guide a personal representative through the probate process. It is the obligation of a personal representative to hire an attorney if the personal representative needs assistance in the probate of an estate. A personal representative is further obligated to pay valid creditor claims of the probate estate, pay taxes of probate estate.

Gabber November 22 November 28, 2012 43 Sustainable LivingBy Shawn Dell Joyc e Locavore Thanksgiving our Thanksgiving dinner. We have a big decision; to sit in front of a meal of imported ingredients, grown around the world in places the Pilgrims never set foot, or, skip the supermarket and source all the ingredients for Thanksgiving dinner from local farms, mills and growers. Eating local embodies the spirit Puritans and Wampanoags sat down together to share a meal that wild fowl (including swans and eagles) and other local foods that they could gather or grow. When we source our foods locally, we eat in season and celebrate whats grown Thanksgiving feast were modern traditional dishes like corn on the cob (all corn was dried by that time), pumpkin pie (they had no sugar), cranberry sauce (no sweetener other served pudding). We have altered the menu over the years, but now we have reached the point where we rehash and serve the exact same dishes over and over. This year, have a real Thanksgiving by celebrating the local harvest and the hardworking hands that grew it. Buy your dinner ingredients from local farms, and prepare what is seasonally available in our area. Your food dollars will stay local, nourishing the farm family, farm hands, and local community. This is an act of gratitude that bolsters your local economy during tight times. that live the way nature intended, chasing bugs, scratching in the grass and frolicking in the fall leaves instead of penned up one-on-topof another in factory farms. These turkeys will cost a little more than their supermarket counterparts because they are not mass-produced or government subsidized. As a matter of fact, none of our small local farms are government subsidized, so when you pay a little more for local produce, it is because you are paying the full cost to grow the food at a fair rate. Large farms that wholesale to chain grocers are subsidized by our tax dollars lowering the cost of goods on the supermarket shelf. This makes non-local groceries appear cheaper than locally grown foods, but there are hidden costs that must be paid in the long run by someone else. Like the loss of soil fertility, social costs of cheap labor and environmental devastation of shipping food over thousands of miles. This year, as you and your family gather around the Thanksgiving feast, offer a prayer of gratitude for our small farmers and farm workers. Give thanks that we still have people in our region willing to with cheap imports. Support these hardworking folks by eating locally grown foods at the holiday table and food system that makes cheap the highest priority, at a deep cost to the environment, the farmers, and future generations, and spend a little more on quality local food and farms. ingredients: --www.localharvest.org --www.eatlocalchallenge.com --www.100milediet.org

44 Gabber November 22 November 28, 2012 How to Identify a Load-bearing Wall Dear Pat: I see these makeover shows on television. I want to open up my kitchen to the family room, and it would be fun to knock out the wall myself. Someone said to be careful of bearing walls. What are they? -Bev K. Dear Bev: Your friend gave you excellent advice. People often see these types of do-it-yourself shows, fun. Many of these television shows are only 30 minutes long, so they dont have time to discuss all the precautions and possible problems that can occur. A bearing wall is one that supports the structure of the house. The primary bearing walls in most homes are the exterior walls. There are secondary interior bearing walls houses have more interior bearing walls because the spans are greater between the exterior walls. If you knock out an interior bearing wall, the materials above it will not be adequately supported. This may result in a gradual settling or above. In the worst case, drywall and lumber may actually start falling down on your head. which walls are bearing walls. Once all the walls are covered with building plans to be sure how the house structure is supported. experienced builder can often inspect a house and give you a pretty good idea of which ones are bearing walls. Interior walls that run perpendicular walls. This is particularly true if there is one located directly above another, but they can be offset sometimes. If your house has a basement or a the location of the support beams. When a support beam is located directly below a wall, you can expect the wall to be a bearing one. You will the house and running the length of the house. You can open up a bearing wall and remove part of it as long as it is properly supported. Go ahead with determine the nature of the wall. If it is a bearing wall, a structural engineer can design a supporting structure so you can open the wall between the two rooms. The fun part is using the sledgehammer, but it is best to put it Begin by removing the drywall from the wall. Do it carefully by separating the wall is totally opened, it will be much easier for a professional to make a determination on the type of wall it is. If you choose not to you will not have damaged the wall beyond inexpensive repair. Also inspect the plumbing, wiring and heating ducts in your home. Some of them may pass inside that ducts are located on outside walls, but the return ducts from a secondstory room may come down through that interior wall.

Gabber November 22 November 28, 2012 45 Paging Captain Awesome ather than listing all the things Im thankful for this Thanksgiving, I need to do something else. I need to thank my friend Leah for restoring my faith. Leah and I met a few years ago and, Ill admit, I initially wrote her off. Thats not very nice, I freely admit, but sometimes I am not so nice. I have that much in common. Also, I was more than a little intimidated. She seemed to have everything together: shed married her college sweetheart, they had an adorable bungalow in Kenwood, and she was thin and gorgeous. Whats not to hate, really? Of course, I ultimately got to know Leah (this would be a pretty crappy column if I didnt, now, wouldnt it?) and I realized she had her demons, that we had more in common than I realized. We can both be relentless, we both have a fatalist attitude about certain things (although we prefer to think of it as realism, thank you very much), and we are two of the funniest people we know in real life But Im not thanking her for any of that. No, I owe her my gratitude because she kind of saved me from myself. You see, I came out of my marriage with a pretty dark view of relationships. Im not blaming my ex; I blame my youth and unwillingness to see reality. But it doesnt matter; whoever gets the blame, by the time I signed my divorce papers I believed that yes, any relationship was work and no, I was patently unwilling to go through that miserable, black drudgery. I had no need for and worrying that if I failed to put human being. I wanted to go to the beach and write and not worry about whether someone would care that I didnt load the dishwasher. In reality, I was pretty tiresome to be around if the conversation turned to marriage or long term commitment. Im amazed, actually, that I had any couple friends at all; my rhetoric times. Even when I started dating someone seriously, I still went on and on about antiquity of marriage, religious mores on the world, a romantic notion applied to something legally binding. I was, as you might expect, a barrel of fun at weddings. Leah, for her part, never disagreed. Instead, she agreed: marriage, she would say, took work. It wasnt some happened. She and her husband subsist on champagne and caviar every night. She doesnt always smile and offer him kind words. Trust me on this: after almost two decades together, it aint all sunshine and rainbows. They have their share of storms. But you know what? They love each other like mad. She cant tell you her anniversary date, neither she nor her husband wear wedding rings, and believe me, and Ive seen a look on her face that suggests perhaps her betrothed may want to stay the hell out of her way for a few moments, but theres no question, they are in love. And, see, thats what she showed me: yes, its work to stay in love. Yup, its not effortless to be with the same person and be happy about it for roughly 20 years. No, they cannot take one another for granted. The thing is, they dont mind. each other, and because they love each other so much, it doesnt seem a hardship. I know their marriage takes a constant stream of give and take. They do not live some romance novel dream. At the risk their love transcends that. Thats not a romantic notion; thats simply an explanation of why they dont seem to mind. And I think, four or so years into a much-feared relationship of my own, I maybe start to get it. When its right, I guess, the work doesnt feel like work. Which I never would have gotten if Leah hadnt maintained such a relentless, gritty stance about love taking work. I watched her, amazed that even though she clearly wasnt a deluded young girl chasing after some Harlequin-induced mirage of love, she loved her husband beyond measure. And, by all accounts, she seems damn happy about it, work or no work. I dont know that she realizes what shes done for me. Its not really the sort of thing we talk about, and, of course, a few other of my closest friends have also shown me that every union doesnt end in tragedy and pain. And, of course, theres El Cap. Im lucky beyond measure, there, too. But Leah, man, shes inspiring. And Thanksgiving is about being thankful, so thats what Im doing. So, you know, thank you, Leah. Youre awesome.

Other than this problem, she is a really wonderful dog. She has not had any formal training, but she caught on to sit and come here all by herself. How can we teach her not to knock people down? -Anne in Austin Dear Anne: The problem is the lack of training and a lack of true communication between you and your dog. A well-trained dog will always sit and stay on command. And if she is sitting and staying, it and knocking over your guests and Your options are: hire a trainer who can solve the problems, or work with your dog yourself. Solving the it will require some time and effort. Do not resort to abusive techniques like kneeing the dog in the chest or stepping on her back toes. It is cruel treatment and harms the relationship between you and your best friend. There are a lot of ways to correct a dog. One of the most effective is the and leash. But you must know how to execute the correction properly. See When Good Dogs Do Bad Things, Siegal-Margolis, published by Little Brown and available at unclematty. com or at most libraries. that may work quite nicely. If your dog is not shy, keep a whistle around your neck or a shake can handy (empty soda can with a few pennies taped inside). Then, have someone greet your dog in the same fashion When she does, blow the whistle that may scare her. This will help, but you still need to train yourself and Biscuit in the basics. Without training, the dont get rid of the dog, get rid of the problem. Sophie is a 1 year old, 45 lb. female Pit mix. She is a calm girl who loves belly rubs. You must own your home to adopt Sophie.
