10 Gabber January 24 January 30, 2013 Letters Looking Good Dear Editor publicly thank the three business owners who have recently, or are currently sprucing up their properties on 49th St. People do notice. I hope it inspires some of the other business owners whose properties could use some cleaning up.Christa FairbrotherToxic Air Dear Editor Deborah Blake (Letters to the Editor, "Smoking Let's get with it," Jan. 17, 2013) for her succinct paring down to the essence of the current controversy The City of Gulfport seems to be having with enforcement of The Florida Clean Air Act [Ch. 386, Fl Statutes]. Gulfport should stop wasting taxpayer funds debating a moot point. Smokers dont seem to realize (or maybe just dont care?) that the carcinogenic contaminants they lose into the publics [my] air have an immediate affect on many people. I am asthmatic, and highly sensitive to tobacco smoke. My father was a chain-smoking, 4-pack-a-day guy who lit up in closed cars with us kids regardless of who choked. Now, I have to hold my breath passing smokers on public sidewalks and in doorways. They often say Hi! or Good morning, and probably wonder why I dont respond, but I cant respond without breathing in this poison air that could cause an immediate allergic reaction, possibly requiring an emergency medical response. Why should their penchant to poison themselves be able to inhibit my enjoyment of my immediate public environment? It shouldnt. This Act says it cant. Thanks Florida. Letters to the Editor Please keep letters to the editor as brief and to the point as possible. Letters must be typed in upper and lower case on plain white paper or emailed to publisher@thegabber.com. One letter per author every four weeks. All letters are printed and edited for length and content at the discretion of the editors. The Gabber encourages and welcomes all letters. The views and opinions expressed in this publication do not necessarily represent the views of the publishers, staff or advertisers. The City of Gulfports support of changing this Act within this municipality could cost them more in legal fees than its worth if its results ever cause someone like me to suffer a (near) fatal anaphylactic reaction. With the support of this state Act, such a person, or their family, should not fail to seek full legal remuneration from a city that violates it.Marilyn EllsworthNational Day of Service Dear Editor 19th, thousands of people around the country participated in a National Day of Service to commemorate the birthday of the late Martin Luther no exception. We gathered, with Gulfport Vice Mayor Sam Henderson, to clean up Tomlinson Pond and the surrounding area. Sam launched his kayak into the pond and paddled around gathering trash that had accumulated, and then took to foot gathering trash from the bottom of the pond. The remainder of the volunteers walked the perimeter of the sport park and down Tangerine Avenue picking up trash. I will say, the nearby residents must be very quite clean, leaving little for some of us to pick up. We also committed to future hours of service over the next year so this becomes a regular activity, not just a one day feel good event. There are so many opportunities for us to give even a minimal amount of time that can make a difference in the lives of others. Will you join me and the hundreds of others who pledged future hours of service during the coming months?Bonnie SklarenGarden Club of St. Petersburg Events The Garden Club of St. Petersburg is located at 500 Sunset Drive S. in St. Petersburg.

28 Gabber January 24 January 30, 2013 By Holiday Mathis Do you cover your mouth when you yawn? This practice of good manners is actually a hangover from ancient times when people were so concerned with the fragility of existence that they developed rituals to ensure the life force stays put, inside, animating the body. One big exhale, some believed, might accidentally release the soul. The entrance of Mars into Pisces may have you examining your own rituals for staying spiritually intact. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). As you engage in your work at this lucky time in your astrological cycle, you will have long stretches of that major features of this state are that it is both fearless and egoless, which are nearly the same thing. Without and defend the personality. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Because of your daring attitude, routine events glimmer with an element of danger and excitement. By the end of the month, youll get some news that shakes you like a martini -but dont worry, it wont leave you chilled. Instead, youll buzz with boldness, ready for your heroic leap. ARIES (March 21-April 19). differently from others. Because your dont think about this very much. But this week brings new situations in which you may not experience your usual comfort level. So push your shoulders back, breathe deeply and smile. This will be fun. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Lifes cycles and overall balance will be a subject of fascination. While you are having a good time, someone else is not. Should you let it diminish your fun? It depends on the situation, the relationship and the distance between people. It takes emotional intelligence and compassion to navigate these factors well. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). There and then there are friendships that you can hardly believe your luck. Youll meet new people this week, so start thinking about what you need and who you would like to more ties that fall into the second category. CANCER (June 22-July 22). It may what is within your control. The only effect. If it works, great. This week you might think of your environment as if it were a computer game in which you have to click on different elements to determine whether or not you can change them. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Youll be asked to account for recent decisions. Though youre the one who made these choices, this wont be easy. Much of what you do is intuitive, and the reasoning may be unclear even to you. And sometimes you are reacting to old subconscious triggers. The best you can do is strive for greater awareness. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Thanks to the needs and animal wisdom of your ancestors, your brain is wired you these days are unnecessary in todays world -e.g., you are not being stalked by a saber-toothed tiger. Detach and get the perspective you need to remain cool. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Every once in a while it comes up, and you are suddenly overtaken by a need to become perfect, or a need to appear perfect, which are two very different things, both of them equally unhelpful. Remind yourself of this, and then drop it if you can. Its better all, and go for it. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). People who dare to be seen making mistakes are the happiest ones around this week -not that they care to compare themselves. They are too involved with their worthy mission to bother with what the rest of the world thinks of their process. Youll be in this category, too, when you take on an exciting problem. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). As you bring a greater level of awareness to your actions, you may notice that youre more concerned with what others think about how youre doing than what you think. Great! Once you notice, youll immediately change your direction and focus. Thursday brings a personal breakthrough. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Even though you have been known to keep an eye out for the bottom line (especially when others have long since forgotten the purpose of an exercise), you really do value process over results. This weeks endeavors are evidence of your ability to focus on the present. This Week's Birthdays Though you currently express yourself in many ways, you will expand and deepen your means of expression. More people will understand you before. With Mars entering Pisces and Venus coming into your sign this week, your love life is infused with new and spiritual intensity. February and March provide steady June is unparalleled. Bring family together in July.

Gabber January 24 January 30, 2013 33 Try your hand at Sudoku By Matthew Margolis Komm Hier! When it comes to getting our dogs to come to us, some of us have some pretty funny ideas. Over the years, Ive worked with a multitude of dog owners who are bewildered that their rendition of come -ranging from harsh to downright terrifying -has the opposite effect of driving their dogs away. Listening to these folks try to get their dogs to come to them reminds me Cruella De Vil, Cruella De Vil. If she doesnt scare you, no evil thing will... But what often happens next borders on the absurd. Frustrated by their failed efforts to get their own dog to come anywhere near them, they go after him. Thats right -the chase is on! There are a couple of things going on here that you might not realize and you probably dont want. 1) Your dog is afraid to come to you because of the tone of voice youre using. 2) Your dog then learns that if he doesnt come to you, youll chase him, and what dog doesnt love a good game of chase? There are a few easy changes you can make to get out of this cycle, should this scene sound a little too familiar. First, pay attention to the tone you use whenever you say your dogs tone of voice every time you utter his blessed name. Second, its time to issue the come command in the manner most likely to yield results. When practicing the come command initially, youll want to use a long lead. The goal is to get your dog to command. When youre starting out, youll need the help of the lead to get that to happen. Its counterproductive to say come over and over. The dog gets the idea that he doesnt need to mosey on over whenever hes ready. When your dog is learning the come command, its important to basically throw him a party with your voice the instant he responds to your command. That initial response could be turning his head to look at you, perking his ears while staring at you, wagging his tail while looking in your direction or a full-on run straight for you. You want him to want to come to you. You want him to believe you are the greatest place in the world to be. Finally, if you brighten your tone and practice issuing the command and rewarding the response, but you still arent getting the complete behavior, consult a training book, buy a training video or call a professional. Dont chase your dog. Its essentially teaching your dog to run away from you, which is a dangerous habit to foster.

38 Gabber January 24 January 30, 2013 By Robert J. Myers, Esq. How is your Legal Health? (Part II) In our last article, the need for periodic legal checkups was examined. The following are some of the legal problems which may be WILLS AND ESTATE PLANNING An indicator of good legal health usually includes having a valid will and some basic estate plan. If you don't have a will, your personal and real property may not be distributed in accordance with your desires. In addition, unnecessary expenses and taxes may be incurred and certain family members could possibly inherit your assets contrary to your desires. A trust is another effective estate planning document. A trust allows you to transfer property to your designated heirs utilizing a successor trustee to implement your trust in a last will and testament, this is called a testamentary trust. Another form of trust is a living trust which is created by written contract. Living trusts are very useful estate planning tools for everyone--not only the very wealthy. A living trust assists in the avoidance of probate and will help in keeping your affairs out of the public record and private. It is critical to review your estate planning documents whenever important changes in your life occur. If you marry, move to a new state, have a child or lose a loved one, an update of your legal documents may be necessary. Also, it is an excellent idea to discuss with your lawyer if your estate plan is keeping pace with the value of your property and is updated to address changes in Florida law and tax laws. Revisions may be made with the drafting of new documents or an amendment to existing documents may be necessary. It is important to never make a change in your old will or trust by writing on or crossing out words or phrases which you want to eliminate as this may invalidate your documents. DIVORCE A lawyer should be consulted if your marriage is ending or you are contemplating ending your marriage. Issues concerning child fair division of the marital property will need to be addressed. If your spouse threatens to harass or harm you, hide marital property or take your children in violation of your visitation or custody rights, a lawyer can assist you in seeking protection against these improper acts of your spouse.

Featuring the Calatayud Wine Region of Spain Calatayuds development has been rapid. Indeed the region has attracted a lot of interest from consultant winemakers, both Spanish and foreign, who have recognised the potential for distinctive and high quality wines. As in the case of neighbouring DOs Campo de Borja and Cariena, Garnacha is the dominant grape in terms of area. The variety is causing a lot of excitement and the older the vines, the more highly regarded they are. years old, 20-30 years old, 30-40 years old and over 40 years old which is sigSuperior for wines made from Garnacha vines which are over 50 years old to highlight wines of a very high calibre. The climate and altitude are two other key ingredients for Calatayuds wines. through the town of Calatayud, the region is extremely hot but thankfully this is counteracted by the height of the vineyards, some of which are located as high as 1,000 metres. Meanwhile the soils feature limestone, marl and slate giving growers an interesting combination to work with. Calatayuds producers now offer both well made everyday wines and more sophisticated styles and there is generally great value to be found here. The stages of the wine route, the new wine exhibition at the Monasterio de Piedra at Nuvalos and the new headquarters for the Consejo Regulador at Calatayud. Calatayud Spain is one of the best places for high quality, value wine in the world.
