I usually just ignore most of his articles everyone has a right to their own opinions and I don't have to read them. But I couldn't ignore this one, it is beyond ridiculous. Really, do you have to print all of the crap he submits? Karen TroutnerIt's about integrity Dear Editor may not have read the article in the Gabber regarding Larry Burkes threat to the homeowners who had their property, but I remember it well and thank Vice Mayor Dan Liedtke Letters to the Editor Please keep letters to the editor as brief and to the point as possible.

This is not about getting back at him because he was on the participant suggested. It is about the integrity of the Planning and Zoning Board. To have someone make decisions regarding zoning who has threatened to deny a zoning request because of support for a candidate he did not support does speak well for his ability to make fair and unbiased decisions. I appreciate the fact that Mr. Burke has apologized, but this is not an action that should have occurred and thus not one that should have required an apology. I am sure there are other good candidates for this position. Perhaps there is another appoint more suited to Mr. Burke, where his political positions will not potentially cloud his decision making.Bonnie SklarenGulfport Fresh Market to Host Blood Drive Florida Blood Services will conduct a blood drive during the Gulfport Tuesday Fresh Market on Tuesday, blood donation vehicle will be parked in the Fresh Market area near La Cote Basque Restaurant at the corner and platelet donors will receive a free wellness check-up and cholesterol a location of their choice, redemable at the Florida Blood Services/OneBlood. org site.

Those who see a good deal will act quickly customer desires quality and knows the difference! TAURUS wrong. This is a temporary color. It will wash away in time or be covered up by a bolder hue. You will change your destiny. Doing one thing right will undo a dozen previous wrongs or at least make those wrongs seem faded and forgettable. GEMINI Chemistry matters. Your visceral reaction to people will inform you more than any other information you can gather. This applies to love, possible this week, its best to meet in person. Even if this creates a momentary inconvenience, it will be better for your life in the long run. CANCER though you know making mistakes is just a part of life, youd rather prevent them all the same. You are open to new ideas, but you also dont have time to waste in the role market to report a good result before you jump into the game. LEO people are often glamorized and put on pedestals. Perhaps others sense that its not so easy to be creative. Creativity requires that you pay closer attention, notice more and often feel more, too. Being creative can be painful, but its a pain youre willing to endure because your heart is full when you create. VIRGO stick with what you know, you might But youll also be uninspired. Instead, branch out on a limb extended just far enough from the main trunk to set your mind spinning freely. Do of trial and error. LIBRA good thing about worries is that they can fuel you to do something better than you would have had you not considered the worst-case scenario. Instead of one backup plan, consider having three or four just because the process of thinking them up helps you get to your most brilliant solution yet. SCORPIO will feel as though youre working yesterday or weeks ago. Its best to vocabulary, though. Things are what they are. Keep working and doing your best, and youll soon see why the timing, though not entirely under your control, is perfect. SAGITTARIUS Youthful folly is more easily forgiven than the mistakes of older people who should know better. But the truth is that those who know better do better. Maturity isnt as uniform a process as you might expect. Once you accept that learning can occur at different stages and ages, you become more forgiving. CAPRICORN Youre usually grateful when people chip in to help you take care of a need, but there are other thoughts going through your head these days. Perhaps youve pre-paid in some way for the service. Reaping what youve sown is only fair. For people to really touch you now, they must go above and beyond the norm. AQUARIUS you remember what you wanted things to be like before you knew what they were really like? Expectations may lead to disappointing real-life experience, but they also open a window of possibility, fantasy and creativity. Being aware of your expectations, you can take measures to create a fantastic reality. PISCES body will dictate so much about how things develop for you this week that you would do well to make its needs sacred or at least a top priority. Getting proper nutrition as well as enough sleep and exercise will be absolutely crucial to your mood and success.

36 Gabber April 25 May 1, 2013 Somethin on my mind Somethin on my mindBy Bill Northr op B_Northr op@theGabber. com Muslim Terror: An International Movement So there you have it. As warned and as predicted, the Islamic extremist war has moved to America's streets, pushing aside concerns about gun the immigration debate in a different direction. The fact is individuals and scattered cells of individuals, inspired or trained, or both, are taking the war in killing and maiming within our boundaries in the name of Allah unless you include Army Major shooting. Not that attempts haven't been made. Consider the shoe bomber and the young man who tried to blow up a plane over Detroit plus others in various places. So, when you think about the Boston Marathon bombing in the context of the past, nothing much has really changed. In this case, the Tsarnaev brothers, one of whom is still alive, were successful as was Major case, he was an American born to Palestinian parents. The Tsarnaevs were Chechen born refugees, but the younger one was pretty much an allolder brother had ties to Chechenan with Anwar al-Awlaki, an Al Qaeda leader in Yemen. All, of course, were Muslims. In both cases, the U.S. government was aware of the contacts but decided that there was no direct threat. That the government agencies were wrong is more than worrisome. Part of the problem is political correctness and the refusal to focus on the Muslim radical while declaring there is an equal threat from white, American extremists. One pundit from Salon on-line magazine even hoped that the killers were white Americans. Those kinds of absurdities don't address the are the problem. I believe them when they say they want to kill us. Everyone should believe them. They are killers and pretty much indiscriminate in killing including fellow Muslims who are not extremist. Some non-radical Muslims are speak out. In the case of the older Tsarnaev brother, members of the Boston mosque he sometimes attended, threw him out for his outrageous, extremist remarks. There is a story, too, that the brothers betraying their handlers. Someone or some institution was providing funds for at least the older brother who spent six months in Russia on wife speculates that whoever was funding the older brother told him to do something or lose his funding. of days after the death of one and capture of the other that the FBI announced that there is a cell of as so fast when they had not been able to talk to the surviving brother? Perhaps, when these thing occur, all the dots, unconnected before, begin to connect. Certainly, good police work, particularly good cooperation between all agencies, brought about the quick capture of the two killers. There is one underlying thread. The threat of similar attacks remains. No changes in our foreign policy, no withdrawals from war, no obliteration of Israel, no concessions or understandings or intellectual rationalizations, no apologies for the past or present, will change the extremists one iota. Simply put, the extremist movement, jihadi, or whatever label one puts on it, is what it is. This is not a nationalist territorial terrorist movement. This is an international terrorist movement that may or may not burn itself out. Killing off key leaders may help, but it won't snuff out the committed individuals who have taken up the Whats on your mind? Email your opinion to: B_Northrop@theGabber.com

Gabber April 25 May 1, 2013 39 Try your hand at Sudoku By Matthew Margolis The Thrill of the Chase From where the dog sits, theres not much that beats the thrill of the chase. Its in their blood -the prey drive, the chase instinct. Its an urge once based on survival, one passed wolf. Its thought that hundreds of thousands of dogs are killed on U.S. roads every year. Many were chasing balls tossed by their owners, or taking advantage of an open front door, or freely wandering their neighborhood as they were permitted to do day after day. Ive known dogs who were permanently maimed by a run-in with a car. Ive seen dogs hit by cars right before my eyes. One such dog was in an open garage with his owner when a dog on a leash, out for a run with his owner who was on a bicycle, trotted across his sightline. The scene was irresistible to the unleashed dog, and he ran smack into an SUV. The dogs owner was in shock. The driver was hysterical. The dog was lucky. witnessed did not turn out so well. But its not just dogs who get hurt in these stories. loose in the street, they swerve, they slam on their brakes, they do what they can to avoid hitting the dog. In doing so, they bring injury to themselves and others in the form with joggers, cyclists, pedestrians and other animals on sidewalks or in intersections. There have also been legal cases where a loose dog chased a person into the street, and that person was then hit by a car. It is the owner, not the dog, who is sued -and possibly charged -in those instances. For most of us, being the cause of the death of a person is a huge burden to shoulder, regardless of whether the offense is determined punishable by law. And being the cause of the death of your own dog is no easier to bear. car, it almost always could have been prevented. To dramatically increase the odds that youll never have to feel the painful regret that comes with losing a dog this way, take these simple --Add a screen door to any doorway that opens to a road or unsecured area. --Secure any yard the dog spends time in with a fence he cannot jump over or otherwise get around. --Keep your dog on a leash whenever he isnt inside your home or in a secure yard. If his leash attaches comfortably, but not so loose that he can slip out of it. a good six feet from the door. In Africa, the chase still has its place. Out of Africa, the chase, wild and unbounded, is better gone to the wolves.

Gabber April 25 May 1, 2013 47 Tell Me Your StoryThe one thing I know about Gulfport is that everyone here has a story. The one thing I know about myself is that I want to know yours. Before you stop and tell yourself, Self, she doesnt mean me. Im not interesting. All I did was raise some kids/go to work/live here. I You are more intriguing than you realize, and, whats more, your story matters, not just to the people who love you most, but to Gulfport. See, history isnt just what the town whatever or what happened on what therefore you qualify. Dont believe me? Think about the cut down trees, built houses, shot small game, and grew their own of something that interests me less than reading about someone planting some extent, whether its Gulfport historian Lynne Browns book or reading snippets of memories one of the Facebook pages about Gulfport history (check out Gulfport Grown if admittedly on varying levels. Me? Im a total voyeur. I love to peel back the outer shell of peoples lives and see whats really going on with them. In grad school we had to do oral meant talking to someone about their history and, as my professor put it, teasing out the meaning of and then wrote up a description of what brought them to Florida and how living where they did shaped and we spent about an hour talking. I recorded him as I took notes, and later I used the recording to add more of his voice back into the story Id written. So, OK, most of you know some of perhaps you think thats why I wanted to focus on him. Nope. I dont hes one of the few people who has spent most of his life in Gulfport, and because of his relationship he has with his brother, Louie. Also, he was just different enough from me that he fascinated me. I didnt judge understand him. The more I sat there and listened to him, though, the more I started to understand what escaped me before. his history in the Gabber, and many folks approached me and asked me about it, remarking that although they had known Bob for years, they didnt know all of what I wrote. Not one person asked about the things that made Bob a local celebrity. They wanted to know about the smaller details. You make up the fabric of our history by being part of Gulfport, which makes my newest project something I hope we can all do together. Museum and tell me your story. Please. I want to know your story. You are one of the most alluring people the world will ever meet, and I dont mean that in some freaky self-help sort of way. I mean that in a history sort of way. Come to the history museum any Thursday afternoon and just talk to me. I want to know why you came to Gulfport and why you stayed here, why you came back here, or Ill write your story. Some of them will run in the Gabber, but thats not really why Im doing it. Im doing it because everyone here has a story about how they arrived here, and everyone here has played a part in shaping this community. I want to record our history through your stories so that two weeks, two years, or two decades from now, people can look back through them and see how Gulfport evolved. Nowhere else have I lived has community mattered as much as it does in our town, and everyone who is part of ours deserves to have their part of our communitys story told. Im at the museum every Thursday either come in or e-mail me to set political. I dont care if you hate I just want to know more about you. of the people who like me the least come through that door and give me the honor of telling their story. Tell me your story, and let me tell the world. Because without your story, Gulfport doesnt have one. Contact Cathy Salustri at CathySalustri@theGabber.com.
