No. 2308 May 2 May 8 2013 Police Collect Painkillers, Other Unwanted Drugs At Saturdays Operation Medicine Cabinet, the Gulfport Police Department collected 14 boxes of unwanted or unneeded medications. According to Lieutenant Joshua Stone, who oversaw the collection of medicines, people returned medicines ranging from old antibiotics to strong painkillers such as Oxycontin. Collections such as these serve a dual purpose: they keep pharmaceuticals out of the water supply (a result unwanted tablets) as well as keeping medicines away from children of people who may use the medicine other than as intended. Faeries Welcome Spring at Clymer ParkTommy the tree, The Maa Fairy made the other faeries an offer they couldnt refuse. This years SpringFest had a new twist: faeries took over Gulfports Clymer Park. The annual event, hosted by the Gulfport Area Chamber of Commerce and co-sponsored by the city, saw its 19th year this Saturday. At the end of its second decade, the event transformed itself into a more magically-themed celebration of spring. The new festival, dubbed a Garden, Art, and Faery Festival moved from Gulfports downtown to Clymer Park. With help from SIK Promotions, the Chamber transformed the park into an enchanted village where faeries, nymphs and wood sprites wandered about the grounds.

10 Gabber May 2 May 8, 2013 Letters Muslim Terror Dear Editor: Re: Something On My MindMuslim Terror, April 24, 2013 issue. Normally, I read Mr. Northrop's columns for a comic relief, knowing he has an agenda to spew forward. I started to read the latest column by him, and his hatred was more than obvious, it was blatant, to me. He was careful enough to make sure that the word "extremists" was in his column enough, enough for him to seemingly justify his actions/thoughts. I wonder if this was to justify to himself or to attempt to justify to others? It seems to me, that he wishes and expects others to think and act as he does, this is not possible nor should it be possible! We, the American people, should be welcoming and accepting of any and all diversity, whether we agree or disagree with it. I do wonder, by the tone of the column and some of the words/ sentences, if he would have felt the need to vilify others if they were extremist Catholics, Baptists, 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. Hindus or Atheists! Mr. Northrop is exhibiting a form of the ever present Islamophobia! Every faith or belief system has extremists in their midst, naturally, Mr. Northrop did not feel the need to address this in his column. The word Islam comes from the same root word as Salam, Salam means peace, Islam is also a peaceful faith. The irrationality of blaming innocent persons for the sins of a tiny minority within their group. When some people deviate from reality, others are often hurt. Neither the faith of Islam nor the Qu'ran believe in Muslims taking the life of another, we see this in many faiths as well. I am not of the faith of Islam, although there are many facets of Islam that I hold in my heart. I am also not what many would call a traditional Christian, I am a person, person that loves all, accepts all, holds all in my heart, the key word is "hope". Mark Grantham Sun Not Setting on These Retirees Approximately a dozen resident artists of The Fountains at Boca Ciega Bay, a St. Petersburg retirement community, recently showed its never too late to create during a two-hour plein air sunset painting class. The class was led by instructor John Comer, who has been teaching painting at The Fountains for more than 12 years. These artists of a certain age headed to St. Pete Beach to capture a glorious sunset over the Gulf at the end of a picture-perfect spring day on April 23rd. They enjoyed it so much, they works will be included in the annual resident art show later this spring. For more information, call 727-3815411.

A: Although many cities have policies stating that if any member of the council (or commission) wants to discuss an item on the consent agenda, the item gets placed on the regular agenda (where, unlike the consent agenda, it can get discussed), Gulfports city clerk, Lesley DeMuth tells us that Gulfport city council's adopted rules of procedure provides that items may be removed from the consent agenda by a motion, second, and majority vote of the city council.

28 Gabber May 2 May 8, 2013 By Holiday Mathis On Thursday, Venus will slip from earthy Taurus into the air sign of Gemini adding her levity to matters of the heart. This breezy social energy the zeitgeist. The trends that affect others will make a difference in the way you live, too, so pay attention. You are more than a statistic, but that doesnt make the statistics untrue. A solar eclipse, also on Thursday, will punctuate the numbers. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Your eyes may be bigger than your wallet, as the planets in your realm amplify cravings for high-quality goods and lower your buyers resistance. As the 19th-century humorist Artemus Ward said, Let us all be happy and live within our means, even if we have to borrow the money to do it with. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Regarding the response you thought of a moment too late: To replay in your mind the version where you do and say the perfect thing is a form of self-reprimand. Let it go, secure in the knowledge that your time will takes to fully seize the moment. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Because you have high standards for yourself, being reasonably nice to most people is just not enough in your book. Youll being extremely nice to absolutely everybody. All of the good will youve been building up culminates in big karma points that boomerang back to you midweek. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). An anonymous person said, Never forget what its like to be 16. You could have a different opinion, as there are some aspects of youth youre happy to be done with forever. For all of your experience, you are still naive in some regard. It is this quality that will endear you to an amazing teacher this week. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Friendly reciprocation happens in many ways, some not as obvious. Those with a generous spirit can receive in a relaxed way because they have the sense that theyve given plenty, even though they werent exactly keeping track. Your friends like you and want you around. You dont have to worry about keeping score. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). When everyone zigs, your zagging impulse can be downright irresistible. Its following the crowd just isnt your idea of a good time. Youll still do it, though, if it makes good sense. Think through your plan. Honestly consider your motives. Joining the group may SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Savoring food -not just eating it but fully living inside each bite -is an animal pleasure not to be missed under the current cosmic lineup. You will be rewarded for adventurous attitudes about food. This is an excellent time to change things up, too. The dietary style youve been considering will be good for you. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Will you look back at this and laugh? Not if youre not laughing now. Your sensibility and humor arent going to change much in the weeks ahead, and time will not provide the emotional detachment it usually does. So if youre displeased, instead of resolving to endure your displeasure, make a change. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You dont glamorize the idea of being in charge. Its not like you want all eyes on you. You really want to see a certain result, and thats the only reason you step into the leadership position. Your leadership is trusted because you walk your talk. You wont ask others to do anything you wouldnt do yourself. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). The things you deal with in a day are different from what others grapple with, and because of this, you dont expect anyone to fully understand where youre coming from. So when someone who really can relate to your experience -you will cherish the new tie. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Just because something is conveyed in a believable way does not make it true, though it usually indicates that someone believes it to be true and wants you to agree. You have a mind of your own and are not so easily convinced this week. Your reticence is wise, because what you believe will change your world. ARIES (March 21-April 19). You have a luxury of choices this week. The best part is that you recognize this (while many others dont), and it makes you feel lucky that you get to write your own story. You get to do all of the rewrites, too. Second and third chances abound as long as youre not too impatient or proud to take a do-over. This Week's Birthdays: Your imagination is strong, and because of the way you repeatedly project the same thoughts, youll turn fantasy into reality. Youll get things done in a group this month, assigning tasks that keep everyone busy and happy. Physical energy will be high. An old wound heals in July. After the break you take from work in August, it will be tempting not to come back. Negotiations in September put you in a better position to improve your lifestyle. A wealth of emotional satisfaction springs from home and family in October. The holidays will grow your spiritual and cultural awareness.

40 Gabber May 2 May 8, 2013 Beach Restaurateurs Thwart Plans For Liquor StoreBy Cathy Salustri Rita Janecek and her husband Mike have experience with local restaurants, although the restaurant at the corner of Beach and Shore in Gulfport will be the rst indoor dining establishment. Rita Janecek will tell me what shes naming the restaurant, but she doesnt want me to tell anyone else just yet. She wants it to be a surprise. She and her husband, Michael, signed a lease on the old Casa Cortez/ AquaBellas/Dive Bar late last month, amid rumors of businessman and Caddys owner Tony Amico buying the building and getting local laws changed to allow for a package liquor store in part of the building. The Janeceks run the beach concessions on Pass-a-Grille, Upham and Madeira beaches, operating them under contract with the beach cities. They do not own the buildings but make needed repairs and upgrades as well as provide food service. The two-story building on Beach and Shore, vacant more often than not since its renovation from Tex-Mex Casa Cortez into a failed -American-fare-themed and the Old Snack Shack on Madeira Beach for three. Weve always wanted to own inside dining. We wanted something where we could have a full menu [and be] a destination regardless of weather, Rita says as local interior designer Deanna Harm and landscaper Kerry Harvey ground running, wasting no time getting a remodel underway. She shows me her concept for a name a suggestion that came from one Paradise Grills Facebook fans and some preliminary sketches but swears me to secrecy. Next she shows me a photo of oysters, explaining that this restaurant will be a nautically-themed, seafood-intensive restaurant. As for Tony Amico? Dont know him and have never met him, she says. We both have the While the Realtor, Yvonne Kane, has asked Gulfport council to proceed with getting permission for a package store in that location, Rita says that isnt in the cards. Not at this time, she says. In the area where Mr. Amico planned to put a package store, she says, she and her husband plan to have a lounge with comfortable chairs and live music. She talks readily about her plans, asking only that the designer, landscaper, and myself dont reveal the name of the restaurant. By July 4, though, everyone in Gulfport will know. Thats the target opening date, although she says she and her husband plan to open sooner if they can. The Janeceks signed a two-year lease that includes a two year option to purchase the building or extend the lease. Contact Cathy Salustri at CathySalustri@theGabber.com.

42 Gabber May 2 May 8, 2013 Somethin on my mind Somethin on my mindBy Bill Northr op B_Northr op@theGabber. com Obamacare Exemptions for Congress True or Not True?Remember Nancy Pelosi's comment about The Patient Protection and Affordable Health Care Act ( Obamacare)? The then Speaker of the House declared something to the effect that we'd out what's in its 2700 pages of rules and regulations and taxes. Well, the politicians in Washington, are just now reading it and they don't like it when it applies to them. If I recall, all the Democrats voted for it; none of the Republicans did. However, according to a story in the on-line magazine, Politico, Congress is seeking a bipartisan agreement to exempt them and their aides from having to participate in the health care exchanges. The law now requires Congressional participation. Stop right there. Since that story coming out. The Washington Post wrote a clarifying story, labeled up front as a bit boring because it was, that wipes out the secret meeting issue, but doesn't eliminate the problems of applying the Act to congress. We'll get to that. In the interim, it was reported that congress and staffers are worrying that the law is going to cost them a lot of money. Right now, the government pays between 72 and 75 per cent of their health care premiums. Under the Affordable Care, the government will still subsidize the premiums based upon income. The worry is that the subsidies won't come up to what is being paid now. An aide, making $25,000 a year, one remarked, might have to pay $7,000 out of pocket. It would be a hardship also, according to the story, for congressmen who don't have big bank accounts. Congressmen earn $174,000 a year plus expenses and other perks. What the Politico story doesn't mention is that congress and its aides are now offered a wide variety of health care plans and many options. Health care exchanges will offer only labels such as platinum, silver, etc. The old plan offers over 15 options. Congress, by the way, participates in the same plan as offered to all federal employes. Henry Waxman, (Rep. D-Calif) an architect of the bill doesn't agree. He doesn't think the law will impact congress and its staff members that much because of the subsidies. Of course, giving exemptions is nothing new. From the beginning, the Obama administration was passing out exemptions from the law for favored unions and political friends. Now, back to the Washington Post points out that Republicans, in the debate about the Affordable Care Act, proposed that the law apply to Congress and staff members. Democrats, in a cute move to co-op the GOP agreed. The argument now goes that Congress will have to comply, but it doesn't really mean what it seems to mean since the federal government is simply a big employer like any other employer and can continue to provide the coverage it always has. But there's a problem there. Large employers can't get into the exchange until 2017. In the meantime, there is no procedure permitting the government to makes its regular contributions to a health plan. The has not made a ruling interpreting the law. Here is what the law says, according to the Washington Post : "The only health plans that the Federal Government may make available to Members of Congress and congressional staff with respect to their service as a Member of Congress or congressional staff shall be health plans that are (I) created under this Act (or an amendment made by this Act); or (II) offered through an Exchange established under this Act (or an amendment made by this Act)." That's pretty clear to me that Congress will have to be on the exchanges to 15. Or, they can amend the act. However, congressional insiders say no one is trying to exempt Congress from the Act, but looking for a way around it so the government can continue to contribute what it has. The Post referred to this as a "unique bind" that the amendment ( known as the Grassley amendment) put Congress in. Didn't Congress vote for it? Maybe they didn't read it. Anyway, you'll have to take their word that no one is trying to exempt anyone from anything. It's a glitch, I guess, in what promises to be a Management rules like they are supposed to. Please don't be confused, either. The Act has 2700 pages; the regulations implementing the Act so far have 13,000 pages. It is not simple and exchanges for small businesses haven't been set up yet, though they are supposed to be. West Virginia Senator Jay Rockefeller (D) said things were a mess and getting messier. Whatever. Just don't accuse Congress of trying to get an exemption. They have a different interpretation. Whats on your mind? Email your opinion to: B_Northrop@theGabber.com

46 Gabber May 2 May 8, 2013 By Matthew Margolis Confessions of a Dog Abuser What do the following comments have in common? Ive given her tongue lashings that would wake the dead and ostracized her to the point of feeling guilty like an abusive jailer. Ive bitten her on the neck and stared her straight in the eyes. I use a pronged training collar, which makes a world of difference. When she goes after my hand, I push it farther into her mouth. What can I do? I have scolded her, slapped her, isolated her, but nothing seems to work. Answer: They are all confessions of dog abusers. These were nonchalant comments dropped by ignorant people in the course of explaining to me the problem with their dog. What they dont realize is that the dog is not the problem. Their dog does not obey. His behavior is embarrassing. They are frustrated. Exhausted. At their wits end. And on and on. But none of the dogs subjected to the abuse laid out above were ever trained. In all fairness, how high should the expectations be? One woman said, He wont come to me. I asked her whether he had been trained to come. She said, Well, I bought him. Shouldnt he come to me? An exchange of cash means nothing to a dog -and neither do the words come and no unless you teach him. None of the techniques quoted above constitutes teaching or training. Most of them were bad ideas pulled from the Internet in a problem. If you were diagnosed with cancer, would you turn to the Internet to nail down a treatment plan? Would you heed the advice found on Dr. Bobs Free Oncology blog? Of course not. Youd turn to a professional, a specialist. Were not treating cancer here, but we are dealing with situations that become dangerous when not properly managed. In dealing with dogs, our voices and hands are tools to shower love, praise and affection. The voice should be pleasant; the hands, soothing. This is how we earn the trust of our canine companions, and it usually isnt hard to do. They want to please us. Theyre ready to trust us. They love to love us. Far and away it is we who do not readily know how to love. Stepping on paws, pulling tails, whacking noses with newspaper, shocking, isolating, kicking, hitting -all abuse. I can understand ignorance; not everyone knows how to raise and train a dog. Thats why I have a job. What I cant understand or condone is abuse disguised as dog training. The dog learns nothing except to fear you -rightfully so. And you accomplish nothing except to destroy the beautiful spirit of an animal and let loose on the world yet another fearful dog. Why so many dog bites in the United States? Why so many dogs in our shelters? Ill give you a hint: The dog isnt the problem. Licorice, Pepper and Mark (with a white mark on his tummy) are gorgeous brothers. The trio was born on February 11; they are now ready for forever homes. Super friendly, the boys love to sleep with their foster Mom as well as relax on her lap. They think other cats and dogs are great. To see and fall in love with these little ones, call a SOS volunteer at 727 545-1116. To learn about more Save Our Strays cats, check SOS website at saveourstraysinc.com.

Gabber May 2 May 8, 2013 51 By Scott Lafee Brain Sweat In the months ahead, there will come a time when it becomes so hot that it will feel like you cant think straight. And you know what, you cant. New research suggests that warm weather impairs our ability to make complex decisions. It might even cause us to avoid making tough decisions at all. This may sound far-fetched, but the notion has a biological basis: Like every other organ in the body, the brain requires energy to function. Like every other organ, that energy comes in the form of glucose. So it stands to reason that if the body, during a particularly hot (or cold) day, is expending a lot of energy on critical temperature regulation, it has less to allocate for brain functions, such as making decisions. And since hard decisions require more cognitive be put on hold. Researchers have tested this idea in creative ways. In one study, they found that lottery buyers tended to prefer simpler pick-6 tickets over choosing from among dozens of scratch tickets when the weather is warm. In another study, participants performed less well on cognitive tests in warmer rooms when compared with cooler rooms. Of course, none of this is conclusive proof that folks in warmer places tend to make poorer decisions than those residing in cooler climes, but its something to think about -preferably in a room with air conditioning. BODY OF KNOWLEDGE The average human head weighs about 10 pounds, or about half of the typical commercially grown watermelon. GET ME THAT. STAT! The breastfeeding trend continues. A new report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says the percentage of mothers who start and continue breastfeeding is rising across all demographic groups. From 2000 to 2008, mothers who started breastfeeding increased more than 4 percent. During that same period, the number of mothers still breastfeeding at six months jumped nearly 10 percent, from 35 percent in 2000 to nearly 45 percent in 2008. STORIES FOR THE WAITING ROOM So much for all that clean mountain air: Sick people is Switzerland stay in hospitals longer than the people of any other nation -almost 10 days, on average. Switzerland also has the worlds highest number of hospital beds per capita. By comparison, the United States ranks 27th in hospital beds per capital. And the average American hospital stay is just under six days, according to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development. PHOBIA OF THE WEEK Linonophobia -Fear of string OBSERVATION The road to health is paved with good intestines! --Physician and author Sherry A. Rogers CURTAIN CALLS In 1877, David Lunt of Deadwood, S.D., was accidentally shot in the when the town marshal attempted to disarm another man. The bullet passed through Lunts brain, leaving both entry and exit wounds, but Lunt never lost consciousness and felt no pain. Indeed, he seemed to recover, resuming ordinary life until, 67 days after the shooting, Lunt experienced a terrible headache and suddenly died. An autopsy attributed his death to the head injury, but no one could explain why he survived so long.

52 Gabber May 2 May 8, 2013 By Robert J. Myers, Esq. What is a Guardianship? (Part II) This article is a continuation of our previous article regarding "What Is A Guardianship?" WHO MAY SERVE AS A GUARDIAN? If someone is an adult resident of the State of Florida, that person a guardian in Florida. Likewise, a close relative of a ward who is not a resident of the State of Florida guardian. However, if a proposed guardian is incapable of performing the duties of a guardian or has been convicted of a felony, that person cannot be appointed by the Probate Court as a guardian. Generally, the Probate Court will give careful consideration to the wishes and desires expressed by a ward as to the selection of a guardian. WHAT ARE THE RESPONSIBILITIES OF A GUARDIAN? Guardians are required to be bonded and may be required to complete a Court-approved training program for guardians. Guardians are required by the Probate Court to be represented by a lawyer. All guardianship reports are presented to the Probate Court for review and approval. In the event a guardian does not carry out his or her duties in a responsible manner, the guardian is subject to removal by the Probate Court. ARE THERE LESS SEVERE ALTERNATIVES TO A GUARDIANSHIP? Guardianship is an expensive and time-consuming process. Use of less severe alternatives to guardianship is highly recommended. For example, the use of a durable power of attorney, a health care directive and/or a revocable living trust may eliminate the need for a guardianship thereby reducing the costs and time delay associated with guardianships.

54 Gabber May 2 May 8, 2013 Why I Love Obamacare I have a pre-existing condition. As a freelance writer, I pay not only the employees portion of my taxes, but the employers part as well. I also pay for my own health insurance. money, at least not to me. I just sent off a hefty payment to the IRS for my insurance premiums due this week. With all that said, I could not support Obamacare more if it were battered, deep fried, and covered in cheese. I support it so much that I would welcome a tax hike to pay for comprehensive, government-run wide. Why would I say that? I mean, in the eyes of the state and the IRS, Im a small business, a class of folks associated with smaller government and lower taxes. I already bear a considerable tax burden for my income level, and giving the government more of my hard-earned money (you spend every Tuesday night at a city council or commission meeting and tell me stripping wouldnt be easier) my wallet. Still, thats what I want. See, I cant afford traditional coverage. Or, rather, I wont. I guess I could go without that new pair of underwear, forego my twice-annual haircut, and... and you know what? It still wouldnt be enough to pay for health insurance that would cover routine visits. I am lucky enough to make too much money for Medicaid, but it still isnt enough to buy decent health insurance. What I have instead is something called major medical. I pay $70 every month for catastrophic coverage, which means Im covered if I go to the hospital to have my arm amputated, but not treatment for the infection that will lead to the amputation. I also need to have continuous coverage because of that pre-existing condition I mentioned. See, if I dont keep insurance, if I ever do buy a full policy, the insurance companies wont pay for anything thats wrong with me already. Because that would actually, you know, cost them money. And who wants to insure sick people? Thats just bad business. Some have suggested I could get a full time job at a company large the skies these days). The reality of that? I have two degrees, a dusty St. Petersburg College, and more than a few summers spent running pools for the YMCA. My best chances for full-time employment with healthcare like to supersize your order or if you found everything you needed on aisle 12. Even then, the reality is that yes, I would have healthcare, but not much else, because those jobs rarely pay entry-level employees a living wage. So I could get health insurance for an exorbitant amount but probably not be able to afford to pay my car insurance. The upside, if you could call it that, is if I got pregnant I could then most likely qualify for Medicaid. Maybe. Its a horrible system. And President Obama has taken insurance any insurance at all I can get a mammogram once a year and an annual well-woman exam at no additional cost. Thats huge, yall: when I started freelancing, I had to decide between paying the power bill and getting a pap smear. Clearly, I was also broke, and that didnt help, but thanks to Obamacare, I will never have to make that choice again. I love In all honesty, I cant blame a can, however, blame our politicians for allowing my physical condition to be determined by how a companys balance sheet looks at the end of the responsibility to their shareholders, whether theyre selling mops or health. Insurance is a business, nothing more, and they have a corporate, not moral responsibility. There are times when the government needs to intervene. This is one of them. Actually, I think the government should make health insurance for anything noncatastrophic illegal, because those policies are, in fact, the problem. Right now, the insurance never pays doctors the full amount they bill, so the doctors must bill more to get a reasonable rate. Its also why doctors have to see some ridiculous amount of patients every hour just to keep the lights on and that affects you whether you have great health insurance or none at all. Remove health insurance, and doctors get full payment from people, and costs go down because theyre getting it all, not just a percentage. The way the system works now is a shining example of capitalism. Which I support, but not when it comes to my health. Then, I support Obamacare. Contact Cathy Salustri at CathySalustri@theGabber.com. Oh, and if you receive Medicare and want to contact her to complain about her views, dont bother. Youre already getting Obamacare.
