Arson Destroys House on Clinton Street


At about 4:00 a.m.
Wednesday morning,
the Gulfport fire
department was called
to a house fire at 3120
Clinton Street South.
Gulfport's acting fire
chief Pete Huffman
(pictured) told the
Gabber that it was
determined by the state
Fire Marshall that it was
definitely Arson.
"There were two points
of ignition in the house.
It has been vacant for
a while and all utilities
were turned off." Said
Huffman.
Gulfport was assisted
by St. Petersburg and
Treasure Island fire
departments.


Council Clears Way for Waterfront Package Stores


By Shelly Wilson

Gulfport City Council
voted 4-1, Tuesday, in favor
of conditional use package
stores in the Waterfront
Redevelopment District. And,
while the first reading was a
relatively quiet affair, this
week's council meeting was
considerably more lively.
"I speak in absolute
opposition to package stores,"
said resident Peter Stewart
who said he dealt with
similar issues in Hollywood,
California. "I can tell you that
a package store will just draw
criminals and drug elements
you do not want. And once it
gets in there, it will be almost
impossible to get rid of."
Reassurances of the
conditional nature of the
ordinance, and the council
controls in place to monitor
the nature of the business,
did not deter similarly


impassioned arguments
against the proposal.
"I'm sorry folks, but we have
missed the boat on this," said
resident Denise Wimmer
Lowe who cited statistics
equating an increase in
alcohol sales with an increase
of crime and violence. "And
now more progressive cities
are pulling back the zoning
again because of these studies
and statistics."
Several residents were
concerned with how the
city planned to monitor the
proportion of restaurant sales,
along with tangential issues
such as underage drinking
or public drunkenness.
Councilwoman Salmon, the
evening's only dissenting
vote, echoed those concerns.
"When you're drinking at
a bar, the bartender has a
responsibility to say you've
had enough," said Salmon.
"But if you go in and buy a


bottle, there's nobody. As soon
as you leave the building,
there's nobody monitoring
that."
However, Police Chief Bob
Vincent reiterated that not
only did his department not
see more police calls

Package Store,
from front page
related to package stores in the area,
but that the police were already
vigilant about illegal consumption.
"There is a responsibility for
bartenders," he agreed, "but once
you are on public property, you
can't consume alcohol anymore,
period. That's already against the
law, it's been against the law, and
we do enforce that, quite frequently
already on the beach, in fact."


0- 10V


Beyond law enforcement,
concerns remained about the sort
of atmosphere that package sales
would promote on the beach.
"I don't think that we should be the
spring break place," said Salmon. "I
don't think that we should have that
kind of party atmosphere on our
beaches."
Resident Mark Grantham, a
recovering alcoholic, called the
ordinance a "slap in the face" for
those people in recovery.
"We are a funky little town," he
added in the evening's popular

refrain. "Let's keep it that way."
"We spend thousands of dollars in
Gulfport to make Gulfport weird and
funky," said Councilman Michael
Fridovich, "but yet everybody turns
out to be Carrie Nation when we
discuss something like this. [...]
While I respect the fact that we have
this difference of opinions, I find it
somewhat absurd that we have this
kind of opposition."
Said Councilwoman Brown: "I'm
married to a gracefully recovering
alcoholic, so we are not consumers
of alcohol. But I know that there
are a lot of people out there who are
responsible consumers of alcohol,
and there's people who aren't. So, I
don't see that as a slap in the face."
While some residents also
questioned a need for the ordinance
without a petition, Beach Haus
co-owner Rich Nugent came to clear
the air of rumors that his business
was pursuing the matter.
"I hear a lot of people saying, 'So
you're opening a package store?'" he
said. "By no means do I want the
community of Gulfport to think that
we are behind this effort. Because
we are not behind this effort."
Several residents did come out in
favor of the ordinance, including
Bob Newcomb, who called the
proposal "sensible, simple, and
pretty harmless."
Vice Mayor Dan Liedtke agreed.
"It's not like we're River City and
we're getting our first pool table. [... ]
All of the feedback I've received is
four-to-one in favor. And right now
we're not saying 'yes' to a package
store, we're saying 'yes, let's see
what kind of proposals you want to
come forward with.'"
Despite high passions, Mayor Sam
Henderson pushed forward with
what he considered simply another
"tool in the toolbox."
"I do feel like this is getting blown
awfully out of proportion," he said.
"We've given ourselves a lot of
protections here, and I don't feel
the need to try and keep a business
opportunity from going in because
of what's feeling like some sort of
medieval fear of having a liquor
store. [...] If something ends up not
working, provided that anyone ever
applies, we can always address it
then."

Safer Crossings
By Shelly Wilson
The new crosswalk on Gulfport
Boulevard at ('I in.- Park was
installed Monday, adding a measure
of safety for non-motorized traffic.
The crosswalk was installed by the
county, as one of two the city of
Gulfport has purchased.
"I think it's fantastic," said resident
Denise Wimmer Lowe. "I think it's
going to make the commute for the
children to school, the baseball field,
students that have to walk to Stetson,
whatever it's going to make that a
lot more safe, and I think it will also
slow the traffic down a little bit there.
I appreciate that that's finally done,
and it looks wonderful."
The user-activated crosswalk will
connect the new ('ly in,.- Park trail
to the Gulfport spur of the Pinellas
Trail, which together will complete
cycling and pedestrian access to
downtown Gulfport.
Mayor Sam Henderson commented
on the installation at Tuesday's
council meeting: "I am going to say
thank you to the county for the
crosswalks. It took us a couple of


years, but I'm very excited to see them
in, and I really hope that helps."
While no installation date has been
set for the second crosswalk, destined
for the Stetson area at Gulfport
Boulevard and 17th Avenue, City
Manager Jim O'Reilly said that the
city has ordered the equipment and
is waiting for an update from the
county.

Project Presents
"Longtime Companion"
Suncoast AIDS Theatre Project is
remembering those who passed and
still suffer from HIV/AIDS with their
Annual "Prelude to World AIDS
Day" presentation of a staged play
reading of Craig Lucas' screenplay
"Longtime Companion".
"Longtime Companion", follows
the lives of a small circle of friends
from the first mention of the disease
in the New York Times in 1981.
First referred to as "Gay-Related-
Immune-Disorder," you watch the
effect of the disease as it devastates
the lives of the protagonists.
Jumping between Manhattan and
Fire Island, vignettes carry us
from the-it-couldn't-happen-to-me
mentality of the early days of the
disease to the invasive effect it has
had on all lives, today. The title of
the film comes from the New York
Times' refusal to acknowledge
homosexual relationships in their
obituary section during this period.
Instead, survivors were referred to
as "Longtime Companions" of the
deceased.
By special permission from Craig
Lucas, this "one-night-only"
performance will benefit PWA
(People with AIDS) programs at
Metropolitan Charities of Pinellas.
"Longtime Companion" will
perform Monday, November 25th, at
American Stage Theatre, 163 Third
Street N. in St. Petersburg. Doors
open at 7 p.m., curtain time is 7:30
p.m. Admission is pay-what-you-will

with Lee Neal, a fine wine merchant for over 30 years.
Monte Oton of Spain
The vineyards for Monte Oton are situated high on the windswept slopes of the
extinct volcano, Moncayo. The sun drench, arid location is ideal for harvesting,
perfectly matured, fully ripened Garnacha grapes. The resulting wine is full
bodied, elegantly textured and exhibits a long complex finish.
This is a very good inexpensive wine.

Call for Volunteers
for Large Project
Margarete Tober, VP
Gulfport Neighbors

Gulfport Neighbors is embarking
on a project to help another of our
neighbors with needed yard clean-
up as well as repairs and painting
of their home. This project will
take place in four phases. Not all
dates are determined, however, the
schedule is aggressive as we would
like to have this completed in time
for Christmas. The four phases
are: yard clean-up; power washing;
repairs and painting.
We are looking for volunteers to
assist with all facets of this project,
with the most help needed in the last
phase painting.
The first phase will take place on
Monday, November 25th at 8 a.m.
We need three or four strong, able
bodied persons to help move some
debris from the front and back yard
to the street right of way. Among
other things, this involves lifting/
carrying cement blocks.


Date for phases 2 and 3 are to be
determined. They require workers
skilled in power washing (as parts of
the house are somewhat vulnerable)
and home repairs. We would like to
have these efforts ledby professionals
with our volunteers assisting.
Phase 4 will require a whole bunch
of folks to assist with painting the
house and fence.
We are also looking for vendors and
or individuals to assist in providing
building materials, paint and
supplies.
If you can help, in any way,
please message us at the Gulfport
Neighbors Facebook page or by email
at Gulfportneighbors@yahoo.com
or by phone to 893-1000 and ask for
Officer McLaughlin. Please provide


us with information on how you can
help as well as dates that you are
available i.e. weekdays, weekends,
etc. Please also include an e-mail
address.
Gulfportians, we are looking
forward to your help in helping to
make a difference and spreading
some holiday cheer!

Excerpts heard at the November 19, 2013

Gulfport City Council Meeting


Public Comment


& Council Quotes

"Usually it's not necessary to thank people for doing their job, but
these folks were not only doing their job, but they were charming,
they were helpful, they were very considerate of all the people that
came here, especially from out of town."
Resident Bob Newcomb, of the Gulfport Area Chamber, thanking drivers
of the two city vehicles used in the recent Flamingo Tour of Homes.

"Is it a catch-and-release pond, or can you take it home and cook it?
Because if it is catch-and-release, we need some signs up. Because
I've caught too many people taking home a whole lot of dinner."
Resident Laura Lee Stuart on regulations at Wood Ibis Park. The city
manager later confirmed that take-away fishing is allowed in the park,
but not netting.

"The more alcohol sales per capital, increase in crime. It's proved;
it's fact."
Resident Denise Wimmer Lowe regarding the ordinance to allow conditional
use package stores.

"We had a long discussion, and arguments about smoking on the
beach, cigarette butts on the beach now you're going to put up
with glass on the beach and other garbage? Drunks on the beach?
This is not a good idea."
Resident Peter Stewart

"If we're going to demonize alcohol in general to that point, why do
we have any bars in town? Why do we have any convenience stores
that sell it?"
Mayor Sam Henderson

"Not every person that buys a bottle of liquor is an 'unsavory element.'
Personally, I'm offended by that. I don't remember the package
store that was here before, but I was reminded that my brother and
his friends used to frequent that store and, while I would consider
them brats at the time, they certainly weren't 'unsavory elements'
and they're fine, upstanding people today. And it didn't hurt them,
nor did it hurt the community."
Resident Margaret Tober

"One thing about being last is, there's nothing left to say."
Councilman Michael Fridovich in council comments.

t tiIoroscope Guide


By Holiday Mathis
This week will not be without
tension, as the sun and Neptune
square off, but much can be resolved
with a brilliant idea. The difference
between adequate and brilliant is
often in the brainstorming. You'll go
many rounds to come up with highly
original ideas that in retrospect will
seem like they should have been
obvious. That's how you know they
are good! It's like a melody that
seems familiar the first time you
hear it.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec.
21). Would you really want to be
someone's hero, idol, guru or god?
Maybe the admiration would feel
good for a while, but power is
addictive, and it has been known to
corrupt even the most honest people.
This week you'll gravitate toward
humility, modesty and lifting other
people's spirits.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19).
If you put your mind in charge,
your heart will keep challenging
its decisions. Because the heart
doesn't make consistent sense (if
it makes any sense at all), parts of
the week will seem complex and
confusing. Still, the heart's language
is trustworthy. Over the long haul,
some of the nonsense will prove
wise.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You
believe in teamwork, and yet once
a person disappoints you, you don't
automatically hand your trust over
again. A practical mindset rules the
week. You'll come up with secret
contingency plans that will allow you
to operate as a team without risking
too much. You truly understand
power.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20).
Experience is often the best teacher,
but it's not the only teacher. You can
follow the instructions left by people
who learned before you and avoid
doing work that's already been done.
Skip ahead. This is like a relay. You
start at the point where the torch
is passed to you, not back at the
beginning.
ARIES (March 2 1-April 19). There's
a perspective that comes over you


from time to time, a feeling that life
has few good days and even those are
filled with trouble. Hang on, because
the mood will pass and so will the
trouble. What you really need is
rest. You'll soon be enjoying yourself
without worry. An abundance of good
times is in store.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20).
Remember the story about the man
who was sad because he had no
shoes and then he met a man who
had no feet? It is rare to find a person
who can appreciate life without first
witnessing a comparatively worse
situation. This week you celebrate,
knowing you have it good.
GEMINI (I.ny 21-June 21).
You can be too hard on yourself,
expecting to outperform others even
when your circumstances put you at
a disadvantage. Be kind to yourself
this week instead of over-committing
to prove a point. Think of your entire
situation, and take on only the
amount of work you can comfortably
fit in.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Some
people will do nice things for you
because they want you to think nice
things about them. Some people will
do nice things for you because it's
just how they are. If you can tell the
difference between these two types
and surround yourself with people
who fall into the latter category,
your week will be great.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You think
you should be able to take your
belief system a la carte, picking and
choosing the beliefs that suit you
best. Unfortunately, many beliefs are
package deals. If anyone can finagle
new and better ways to think this
week, it will be you. Stay optimistic,
because you're likely to find what
you're looking for.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Your
notion of vacationing may not match
up to the realities of the week. Leisure
time, unguarded, gets eaten up by
some very unleisurely obligations
and commitments. To some degree,
it can't be helped. However, if you
make a few sacred commitments to
yourself, you should be able to honor
them by the week's end.


LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You can't
always cure restlessness by getting
rest. What you need is interesting
stimuli. But don't be fooled -- you
can't scratch this itch by buying
things. That initial rush will be
followed by a letdown, because this
is not a material problem; it's a
spiritual one. Seek challenges that
will force you to develop your skills.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Some
say that all that counts in life is
intention. But good intentions can
be misunderstood, and negative
consequences can come out of simple
accidents in which there was no bad
intent. You'll wrestle with your own
sense of morality this week and pin
down some rules that feel right and
good to you.
This Week's Birthdays: Your
pioneering spirit will lead you to be
the first to try new technology, hop
on trends and move to where you
believe the action is going to be.
You'll get to the end of a problem in
December, and you'll fill the space
with something positive. A key
relationship changes, making your
life happier in January. February
brings a crossroads. A mentor can
help, but don't let anyone make
decisions for you. Your heart knows
the right direction. Finances improve
in March and July.

Tierra Verde Tree
Lighting and Fun Day
For the third year, Tierra Verde
will host an island Christmas Tree
Lighting and Family Fun Day. The
event is from 4 to 7 p.m. on December
7th in the downtown area (near
Billy's Stonecrab, Seafood & Steak,
One Collany Road).
The tree lighting throw-the-switch
duties will be performed at 6 p.m.
There also will be plenty to do for
adults and children alike during this
festive community celebration.
Continuous joyous music will
be provided by solo artist Gale
Tripp smith, known for her
performances at such venues as
Treasure Island Yacht Club and
Harvey's Beach Bar.
At 5:30 p.m., the Island Chapel will
present holiday carols for an audience
sing-along.
A Santa sleigh will "land" near the
gazebo where children will meet
and greet good ol' Saint Nick. After
touching down on Tierra Verde, the
bearded one will hop on the Tierra
Verde Fire & Rescue truck to arrive
in grand style at the downtown
celebration. The fire department,
according to Capt. Larry Thompson,
will donate cider, hot chocolate,
popcorn and candy cotton.
New this year is an Author's Table
where three local writers will have
books for sale. Janis Froelich ("Team
Shop"), Jackie Minniti ("Project June
Bug") and D.J. Kelley ("Imperfect
Heroes") will be on hand. Plus, the
scribes will be available to discuss the
techniques of getting a story down on
paper (or the computer, these days).

event, contact Gaye Wurzbacher at

Shouldn't We Sit and
Wait for Another Study?
A really big meta-analysis that
reviewed the results of 305 previous
clinical trials of drugs for coronary
heart disease (more than 339,000
patients total) and other ailments
found that exercise might work just
as well -- or better -- than prescribed
medications.
The Harvard Medical School study


OOUJU LulIpOrl tD1vCl
Pasadena Shopping Center


reported that carefully monitored
physical exercise was just as effective
as drugs for treating people with
or recovering from coronary heart
disease or preventing diabetes. For
stroke, exercise was more effective.
For heart failure, drugs tended to
work better.
The scientists emphasized that their
results do not meanpeople should stop
taking their medications, especially
without consulting their doctors,
but they do suggest that exercise

might play a more significant role in
preventing, treating and recovering
from many diseases.
The bad news: Even "healthy"
Americans don't get enough exercise.
The Centers for Disease Control
and Prevention recently estimated
almost 80 percent of adults do not get
the recommended amount of physical
activity each week -- 2.5 hours of
moderate-intensity aerobic exercise
and 15 minutes of really working up
a good, heart-pounding sweat.
BODY OF KNOWLEDGE
The average life span of a human
taste bud is seven to 10 days. By age
60, most people have lost half of their
taste buds.
GET ME THAT. STAT!
Americans consume 80 percent of
opiate painkillers produced in the
world, according to American Society
of Interventional Pain Physicians.
STORIES FOR THE
WAITING ROOM
Hearing loss isn't limited to
rock musicians and their fans. An
Australian study recently found that
among surveyed professional French
horn players, aged 40 and younger,
between 18 percent and 33 percent
showed signs of noise-induced
hearing loss.
PHOBIA OF THE WEEK

I cmet ch' Oh my mind
a b o By Bill Northrop BNorthrop@theGabber.com


The Slow Track
of Immigration
hat was once a fast track
has now become a slow track
stalled by its own over-reach,
political reaction and re-reaction,
public reaction and the turmoil called
ObamaCare. The train on that track
was a comprehensive immigration
reform bill.
It, at first, had a bi-partisan
shove, championed by Florida's
U.S. Republican Senator Marco
Rubio. This push lasted for awhile,
but the tracks weren't exactly
greased. Continued concern about
stopping the flow of illegals over the
border, executive movement to stop
deportations, complexities of the bill,
accusations of pork barreling and over
regulation (setting wages for workers
and declaring Nevada a border state,
for instance), politics and ballooning
number of pages (1,200), all combined
to create opposition to the movement.
In spite of that, a Bill did get through


the U.S. Senate pretty handily. The
problem rests in the House which
(the Republicans, that is) doesn't
want to consider the Senate Bill
but wants to create its own which,
ideally, would go to conference and be
blended or compromised into a new
Bill. That's doubtful. There appears
to be support for piece-meal rather
than comprehensive legislation. That
is, breaking the issues down into its
parts: what to do about the 11 million
(and growing) illegal immigrations
already here; streamlining or at
least reforming the legal path to U.S.
residence; providing for immigrant
workers, temporary and not so
temporary; border security; and so
forth and so on.
Border security gets the most
attention although 40 per cent of the
problem lies with people overstaying
their visas. Businesses say they need
workers now and that creates political
support within the Republican party
and, of course, with Democrats.
According to critics, all this just means

cheap labor. But, Democrats see votes
everywhere. Plight of the 11 million,
facing possible deportation although
they've been here for decades and their
children born here are U.S. citizens,
is, in many cases, heart breaking. So,
all these special interests combine to
create pressure, although no solution.
One of the problems is the general
public whose reactions are reflected
in the fear of politicians running
for re-election particularly where
these issues aren't in the forefront.
The biggest issue is the existing
unemployment which is reflected not
only in the 7 per cent plus figure, but
by the fact that the number of people
working has declined dramatically.
Also, people are concerned about
stopping the inflow ofillegals. I suspect
that the issue of illegal immigrants
getting citizenship gives people
pause, but I also suspect that the
majority are sympathetic. However,
the strident rhetoric and sometimes
actions of the more radical illegal
immigrants and their representatives
probably doesn't help things. The
Senate Bill, by the way, provides for
a path to citizenship over a 13 year
period. That's not exactly radical even
if it gets called "amnesty".
Anyway, that is a quite short and
shallow description of where we are
now. Yet, it does demand a solution.
Both Clinton and Bush failed to
get support for a comprehensive
plan primarily because people don't
trust the government to keep the
scenario from repeating itself. That's
what happened under Reagan:
amnesty, then a rebuilding of illegal
immigration.
If the only track to dealing with
these problems is to approach them
piecemeal (although they are inter-
linked), then get on with it. Setting
the priorities then becomes the
first debate. It has to start with the
path to citizenship and stopping the
bleeding at the border and elsewhere.
Providing needed workers would be
second. Whatever the approach, doing
nothing doesn't do the country or the
people much good.
The item by item approach probably
would be more transparent and
palatable to the public who haven't
taken well to such comprehensive
approaches as ObamaCare. Politically,
the Republican controlled House
appears to have gotten it right. Now
they have to act.

Operation Santa 2013
It's that time of year again! Santa is putting his list together for this year.
If you are a Gulfport resident and could use a little help, the Gulfport Police
Department is now accepting applications for Christmas assistance through
December 1, 2013 between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. Monday through Friday at 2401
53rd Street S. Gulfport. Each family's head of household must bring photo
identification, proof of Gulfport residence as well as the name(s) and age(s)
of children) living in the home. Operation Santa will collect Christmas gifts
for children ages 0 to 10 years of age. There will be no home deliveries and
you must pick up your gifts at the Police Department from December 17-18,
2013 by appointment only, so it's important that we hear from you right away.
For more information on Operation Santa, please call at 893-1042 and leave
a message.
To assist Operation Santa 2013
For 22 years, Gulfport Police Department employees have sponsored a program
called "Operation Santa" in which toys are donated to needy children that live
in the City of Gulfport. Operation Santa has always been very successful in
part due to the contributions we receive. We would again like to ask you for
your help in the form of donations, i.e. monetary, new unwrapped toys, and
gift cards. Any help that you can provide would be greatly appreciated. If you
have any question call 893-1042 and leave a message and someone will return
your call.

Vote for Gulfport's 2014
Gecko Ball Theme!
Organizers of Gulfport's annual
Gecko Ball are encouraging the
public to vote now on the theme of
next year's event. August 23, 2014
will be the date of the Sixth Annual
Gecko Ball, building on the tradition
of this increasingly popular annual
event one week before Gecko Fest.
Past themes have included "Geckos
in Wonderland" (with an Alice in
Wonderland twist), "The Lizardof Oz"
(evoking all things Oz), "Hooray for
,., k..\ .....1 (Hollywood glamour),
and "Gecko Night Fever," the smash
hit 1970s/Disco-themed Ball earlier
this year. Each theme inspires its
own array of costumes, d6cor, food
and music for the Gecko Ball, and
also leads to a separate costume
theme for Gecko Fest itself.
Three themes have been selected for
final voting by the public for 2014:
"Gecko Sock Hop" (1950's
Americana a la "Grease" or "Happy
Days," etc.);
"Gecko Mardi Gras" (The
flamboyant pageantry and color of
Fat Tuesday a la New Orleans or
Brazil's Carnivale, etc.);
"Roaring Geckos" (The "Roaring
20's"-era of America a la "The Great
Gatsby" or "Guys and Dolls," etc.).
Voting will continue through
November 30th. Please only cast
one vote per person. To vote, go to
the Facebook page for "Gecko Ball"
at www.facebook.com/geckoball
and post your choice there in a


comment. Please "like" the page
while you're there to receive updates
on the event. Or email your choice
to geckoball2014@yahoo.com. The
winning theme will be announced
at the beginning of December,
allowing party-goers approximately
8-2 months to plan and create their
2014 Gecko Ball costumes! Watch for
Gecko Ball tickets to go on sale a few
weeks prior to the event. Gecko Ball
sells out every year, so party-goers
are urged to get their tickets as far in
advance as possible.

You & THE
LAW"


By Robert J. Myers, Esq.
What is Probate?
Probate is a Court-supervised
process which is normally required
to wind up the personal and business
affairs of someone who passes on.
Probate involves the identification of
and gathering of a deceased person's
assets, the payment of taxes, creditor
claims and expenses and, finally, the
distribution of the deceased's assets
to beneficiaries.
Probate documents are generally
filed in the county where the
deceased person lived. A filing fee
is required to be paid to the Clerk of
the Circuit Court to start the probate
administration process. After a
probate proceeding is initiated, a
Circuit Court Judge is assigned to
oversee the process. A Judge will,
upon her/his approval, issue letters


of administration which appoints
a personal representative of the
deceased's estate. The Judge also
resolves questions raised during the
probate administration by reviewing
all filed documents and holding
Court hearings as necessary.
Who has Preference
to Serve as Personal
Representative?
If a deceased person had a valid
last will and testament, the person
who is designated in the will to
serve as personal representative
will have preference to be appointed
by the Court to serve. In the event
the deceased did not have a valid
last will and testament, a surviving
spouse will generally serve. In the
alternative, a majority of the heirs
may select someone to serve as
personal representative for approval
by the Court. In our next article,
we will together explore what
the responsibilities of a personal
representative are in the probate
proceeding.

Law Offices which is located at

never been known to fail. This novena must be
said for 9 consecutive days. Publication must
be promised. Oh Holy St. Jude, Apostle and
Martyr, great in virtue and rich in miracles,
near kinsman of Jesus Christ, faithful inter-
cessor of all who invoke your special patron-
age in time of need, to you I have recourse
from the depth of my heart and humbly beg
to whom God has given great power to come
to my assistance. Help me in my present
urgent petition. In return, I promise to make
your name known and call you to be invoked.
St. Jude, pray for us all who invoke your aid.
Amen. Say 3 Our Fathers, 3 Hail Marys & 3
Gloria's. R.S.

NEVER FAILING PRAYER TO ST. MICHAEL
- St. Michael, the Archangel, Defend Us In
Battle; Be Our Defense Against the Wicked-
ness and Snares of the Devil. May God Re-
buke Him We Humbly Pray; and Do You Oh
Prince of the Heavenly Host, By the Power
of God, Thrust Into Hell Satan and the Other
Evil Spirits Who Prowl About the World For the
Ruin of Souls. Amen. St. Michael, I Resort
to Your Protection and in My Faith, Offer This
Light Which Shall Burn Every Tuesday. Com-
fort Me in My Difficulties and While Lodging in
the House of Our Savior Intercede for Me and
My Family That We Will Be Able to Hold God
Close to Our Hearts and Be Provided for in All
of Our Necessities. I Beseech You, to Have
Infinite Pity in Regard to Favors I ask of You
(Name Them) So That I May Be Able To Over-
come All Difficulties as You Did the Dragons
at Your Feet. Our Father (Say 3 Times). Hail
Mary(Say 3 Times). Glory Be (Say 3 Times).
This Prayer is to be Said 9 Tuesdays, in Suc-
cession and Each Tuesday a Candle Shal
Be Lighted and a Copy of This Prayer Lft in
the Church to Help Another Soul in Distress
and Support the Devotion to St. Michael. This
Miraculous Saint Grants Everything, No Mat-
ter How Difficult, Before the Termination of 9
Tuesday. G.B.
