GP Merchants Name New President
By Cathy Salustri

-- Ten years ago, this reporter sat across
from Lori Rosso and asked her about
her plans as newly-elected Gulfport
Chamber of Commerce president.
"It always stuck with me that you
asked me what I was going to change,"
she remembers. "It always stuck with
me that I don't want to change, I want to
enhance. I want to benefit more people.
Lori Rosso I genuinely love Gulfport."
Gulfport Merchants Rosso spent the last decade proving her
Association President ,-

Gulfport Neighbors
Community Group
Neighbors Helping Neighbors
By Rose-Marie Sewall
It's that time of year when,
despite the pollen blanketing
our yards, many of us enjoy
the colors popping up in our
flowerbeds and can't wait to
dig into our gardens before the
summer heat slows us down.
If you would like to save water
and your money, time, and
energy, please consider planting
or replacing plants with Florida-
friendly flora, which do not need
inordinate amounts of care
and attention to survive in our
climate. Also consider helping
your elderly and/or sick neighbor
fix a torn screen, paint a faded
mailbox, mow a lawn, or bring
brush to the curb for pickup.
The spring days also energize
us to spruce up our homes, so be
sure to contact Gulfport's Public
Works Department at 893-1089

Thanks for the support
Dear Editor: Small Adventures
Bookshop has closed after nearly 23
years on Beach Boulevardin Gulfport.
On March 26th, the doors were
shuttered and the enormous process
of packing and moving 12,000 books
began. By the end of the month, our
little book cottage was empty, shelves
removed and readers gone, waiting
silently for a new business to take
possession of the 3107 property.
For my husband Bruce and myself,
being on "the street' with kind and
interesting customers, surrounded
by helpful small business owners
has been a rewarding experience.
We have watched it evolve from a
business backwater into a destination
for diners and festival visitors from
around the world, brought here by
a very active Gulfport Merchants

Association and Chamber of
Commerce websites. We'll miss all
the daily events and especially our
book-loving customers who shared
their thoughts and life experiences
with us and our scholarly, faithful
associate, Tina Hansen. However,
watch for us, we'll still be lingering
nearby to enjoy Gulfport activities as
always, kept informed by our favorite
newspaper, the Gabber.

with Lee Neal, a fine wine merchant for over 30 years.

Palazzo Della Torre Allegrini 2009
This blend is a smooth, fullbodied cru made in an innovative ripasso style.
After the harvest, the grapes from the Palazzo della Torre vineyard follow
two different paths: 70% of the grapes picked are vinified immediately, and
the remaining 30% are left to dry until the end of December. The fresh wine
made at harvest is blended with the fermenting juice of the dried grapes,
initiating a second fermentation, and rendering a more highly concentrated
and complex wine. Allegrini affectionately refers to Palazzo della Torre as its
"baby Amarone."
Deep ruby red in color, this wine is brimming with notes of dark, dried
cherries, blackberries and hints of dates and mocha.
All I can say is, "Excellent."

ottoIoroscope Guide

By Holiday Mathis
People who feel listened to have
a greater feeling of control over
their lives and a stronger sense of
connection to others. Giving the gift
of being a good listener isn't free, nor
is it easy. It comes with a cost, and
that cost is a measure of time and
full attention. This week's total lunar
eclipse and full moon in the sign of
partnerships serves as a reminder to
listen well to those we love the most.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). It's
hard to say how people come to
expect things from you beyond what
you tell them you will do, but this will
be the case. It will be a challenge to
communicate where you're coming
from, but you'll find a way to make
them understand, adjust and set a new
and more appropriate expectation.
TAURUS (April 2' 20).
Knowing that you can't have
everything at once, it's time to order
your list. The people and tasks that
need you will seem more important
than many of the things you want. Is
this the best way to live? The answer
may be "yes," but still you should hold
up the question because you'll thrive
best living a life well examined.
GEMINI 0l.iy 21-June 21).
Whether it's family, a work colleague
or the general public, at some point
you'll have to deal with people who
don't know or respect your personal
rights and preferences. It's not
always possible to choose your team,
but when you do have a choice, you'll
avoid people who require you to
constantly assert yourself.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). When
you go against your better judgment,
it usually ends badly. And yet you
will feel bold and daring this week,
gripped by a vivacious mood that may
convince you that the possibility of
certain negative consequences is fair
payment for the prize of adventurous
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Whether
surfing the Internet or shopping in
the real world, don't buy into offers
that sound even a little too good to
be true. Online, the wrong websites
could give your computer a virus, and
in the real world, bad decisions bring

unnecessary regrets. Your judgment
is excellent this week, so all you have
to do is follow it.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You'll
figure out on whom you can rely.
New prospects will seem scary to the
reliable people you know. Another
person's inability to act quickly and
confidently presents both a problem
and an opportunity for you. As you
realize that it's too much to expect
others to carry the ball, you'll commit
to moving things forward.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You
used to think that true love meant
not having to give up who you are or
change in any way to accommodate
the other person. However, this
week you may love someone deeply
and truly and still want change. It is
reasonable to believe this change can
happen, but only if the other person
wants it, too.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You
don't require as much reassurance
as others, and you don't act because
you need the reaction of others to
feel validated. However, when you
are socially validated this week, it
will feel good -- much better than you
thought it would -- and you might
change your plans in order to get
more of this good feeling.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21).
In some ways, your life this week will
be as complicated as science. You'll
have to choose between proof and
certainty. You won't have both in the
same situation. You'll either have to
take a leap of faith to accept what is,
or you'll have to believe the facts even
though they add up to a reality you
can't see.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19).
People go to great lengths to avoid
certain feelings, but you're learning
that it's often much easier just to
let the feeling happen. Good health
and augmented fortunes follow your
decision to stay with uncomfortable
feelings and work through them.
They will be over soon enough!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18).
You'll be driven to create, originate
and initiate, though while in the
process of this, you'll wonder whether
it's what you're really doing. It will

feel like you're just taking the next
step, assimilating your environment
in the way that seems most logical to
you. What you think is obvious others
observe as wondrously original.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). It
takes a good deal of energy to be
positive and engaged most of the
time, but you feel it's energy well
spent because it not only makes your
life better, but it also improves other
people's experience, too. Just be sure
to take a few breaks in which you
spend hours on end not demanding a
thing from yourself.
This Week's Birthdays: In the
past, you were made to feel like it was
your responsibility to bear the burden
of another person's misbehavior. Now
you realize how wrong you were about
that -- you're totally free! You'll love
this year's options, beginning with
a choice in May that will make you
money. A sweet friend will open up
your horizons in June. Travel is best
in July and September. You'll be a
keeper of treasures in August. While
you're looking for ways to use and
expand your talent, you'll find love.

It changed executive directors and
names it's now called the Gulfport
Area Chamber of Commerce. This
past January, Rosso chose not to run
for election.
"It was time for a change in
command," she told the Gabber.
"After too many years as the leader,
you need new ideas. [New president]
Barry Rubin brings a new skill set
and enthusiasm."
Rosso remains active on the now-
named Gulfport Area Chamber
of Commerce, serving as its vice
president, a position for which she
had no competition. However, she
has turned her leadership skills to fill
the shoes emptied by Mike McCue,
longtime president of the Gulfport
Merchants Association (GMA).
The GMA focuses solely on
businesses in the waterfront district.
In years past, this has included
Beach and Shore Boulevards, but
Tuesday afternoon Rosso said some
businesses along Gulfport Boulevard
will get included in the next GMA
business brochure.
"We work in tandem with the
Chamber. We always have and
always will," she says. The Chamber,
she adds, has a larger focus, but
stresses that all the city's business
organizations and the city itself -
have worked and will work in tandem
to keep Gulfport moving forward.
"The rising tide raises all boats.
You can't create the kind of change
we needed ten years ago," she says,
without "the kind of cooperation
between the Chamber, the GMA, and
the city, and that will continue."
Monday night, the Gulfport
Merchants Association voted
unanimously to make Lori Rosso
president. Mike McCue, the
immediate past president, will
remain a member of the GMA board
"and he'll continue to advise me,
much like I continue to communicate
with and advise Barry," Rosso said.
"[Mike] is not walking away; he
remains very active."
"I'm very passionate about the
Merchants Association; I've been
involved with it for thirteen years,"
said McCue. "I need a break. It's a
personal time issue. It takes a lot of

Gabber April 10-April 16, 2014

Other GMA board members
include Owen Pach (Industrial Arts
Center), Vice President; Biff Lagan
(Gulfport Beach Bazaar), Treasurer;
and Marsha Warner (Gulfport
Tuesday Fresh Market), Secretary.
Other board members include Daniel
Hodge, Suzanne King, Michael
Knettel, Scott Linde, Larry Musfelt
and Richard Radovic.
The GMA sponsors the two-
decade ArtWalk tradition as well as
GeckoFest, Holiday Hoopla, and Get
As with many other volunteer-
driven organizations in Gulfport, the
board elections saw no competition.

Rosso stepped into her vice
presidency at the chamber as well as
presidency at the GMA unopposed.
Rosso is active with the county's
Convention and Visitor's Bureau, a
frequent silent attendee at city hall
meetings, and owner of one of the
two lodging facilities in town, Sea
Breeze Manor.
And, as when she took the helm at
the Chamber, Rosso sees her new
command staying true to the course
the GMA has set.
"I don't see us fundamentally
changing at all," says Rosso. "We're
very happy,"

Attorney Keith Sanders, Handles
Foreclosure Defense and Bankruptcies
with Experience and Sensitivity

'"T ou could say my
Smotto is 'been there,
done that'," says Keith
Sanders, from Sanders Law,
He says that for two
reasons. First, he says his
more than 20 years of
experience as an attorney
specializing in handling
"literally thousands" of
bankruptcies means that he
has dealt with virtually any
kind of problem or issue that
might arise with them. And,
secondly, he had to file a
Chapter 13 bankruptcy
himself. He says that
experience makes him very
sensitive to the kinds of
things people face when
making the difficult decision
to file.
"Most attorneys have
never been in a situation
where they have been
worried about how to keep
the lights on, but I have been
there myself so I can really
relate to what people are
going through," said
Sanders. "Plus, many people
are very embarrassed when
they come to me, but when I
tell them how embarrassing
it was for me to have to stand
in front of judges and
colleagues who knew me and
go through the process
myself, that usually helps to
put people more at ease and
understand that I have been
there and done that

"You know, in 99 percent of
bankruptcy cases the
situation is that bad things
happen to good people. They
have gone through an
expensive health crisis or a
divorce or just got in over
their head with debt."
He began his career as a
staff attorney for the U.S.
Department of Justice in
Atlanta. He is licensed to
practice law in both Florida
and Georgia.
"I like what I do because I
feel like I can help people get
a fresh start," said Sanders.
"Since the initial
consultation is free, you really
don't have anything to lose to
meet with me and we can
assess your situation and see
how it might be best for you to
proceed. Bankruptcy can be
one solution to getting back
on your feet financially, but
it may not be the best or
only solution for you.
Sanders has held a number
of seminars and written
professional papers
concerning bankruptcy law in
general, ECF requirements
and new issues. He is a
former director of the
Bankruptcy Section of the
State Bar of Georgia.
The firm also handles
Short Sale negotiations,
defense against foreclosures,
wills & trusts, civil litigation
and personal injury.

ACA: Still an
Unknown Mess
here's no way there can be a
victory lap for the success of
ObamaCare; nor is there any
way to declare it a complete failure.
The fact is what was also known as
the Affordable Care Act, passed four
years ago, has been been changed
30 times by executive order mostly
postponing mandatory aspects of it.
Declaring that 7.1 million have
signed up is as false as the lies that
"if you like your plan, you can keep
it." It sounds good, almost too good,
and based on past declaration there's
no reason to believe it. That's not
supposition. Sign ups on the web site,, don't mean anyone
has paid the premium. That's number
one. Second, there's no record, at
least now, whether these are people
who already had an insurance policy
or, if they did, that it is any better
than their old one. Third, there's no


announcement yet whether these
sign-ups are the young people that
are needed to make the system
On the other hand, let's face other
facts: someone benefits. It has (or
will when used) done someone some
good. Someone who didn't have a
policy before has one now; someone
got a policy less expensive than
one they had; someone got covered
who wasn't before. In that latter
category are those who, because of
pre-existing conditions, couldn't get
a policy and some who, under age 26,
are now are covered by their parent's
policy. Those are popular aspects and
supported by both political parties.
However, we also know that
ObamaCare has been disruptive.
It was passed on a parliamentary
procedure and without support
or even input of congressional
Republicans. The President and
his advisors deliberately lied about
aspects of it. The rule that employes

working 30 or more hours must be
covered, has disrupted employment.
Mandatory coverages have driven
up costs for some plans. Health
care providers have hundreds of
new rules to abide by and there are
thousands and thousands of pages of
new regulations.
Executive changes to the plans,
including exemptionsfor somepolitical
friends, has created controversy and
uncertainty. Supreme Court rulings
further confused the picture and
we don't know whether the IRS,
the enforcement agency, will or can
enforce penalties. The initial roll-
out was a disaster and the system
is still not completely functioning.
Moreover, the numerous delays of
implementation mean that the effect
is unknown. Nor do we know the
ultimate cost to the taxpayers or to
the insurers. The effect of numerous
other taxes included in the law are
still unknown. Ignored in most of this
is the purpose of the law. That was to
get more health insurance coverage
for more people.
So, here's a little formula to
consider: total paid for sign-ups on
the insurance exchanges plus those
signed up for the expanded Medicaid
programs minus those who already
had insurance, but were forced to
sign up on the exchanges equals
the net number of newly insured
people divided into the gross cost
of promotion, administration, and
subsidies equals the net per capital
cost of the ACA at this given point in
Proof or validation comes in a broad
counting of the number of people
covered by health insurance before
the implementation of ACA and
the total number covered now and
the cost of that. Or, the reverse of
that: the number still uncovered
now, compared to before. None of
that deals with all the employer
mandates and other aspects that
have been delayed or changed either
temporarily or indefinitely nor with
the regulations within the medical
care delivery system.
Finally, this all takes repeal out of
the discussion. Repeal talk should be
replaced with overhaul because it is
the only option and it already started
with 30 executive (and therefore
arbitrary and non-permanent)

A (Feminist) Page Out of Time:
The Women's Pages
Remember the women's page in your hometown paper, with recipes, clothing
advice, and other tips to make a home nice? For years, the only way women
could work in the newspaper industry was to write about fashion and food.
In the 1960s, Florida had the leading women's pages in the country. These
forward-thinking editors blended the traditional fashion and food with the
progressive debates of race and gender of the time. They also promoted the
women's clubs that often created the foundations of their communities. The
women's page editors created a community of their own and supported each

Florida's women's page editors, including several food editors from her book,
"The Food Section: Newspaper Women and the Culinary Community." She
will speak at the Gulfport Historical Society at 5301 28th Ave. S. Her talk
costs nothing, and you may bring a dish to share if you wish, although that's
never necessary to enjoy the talk.
The Gulfport Historical Society will open the city museum doors at 6:30 p.m.;
at 7 p.m., the talk begins. As always, admission to the museum costs nothing,
although the Society accepts donations. For more information contact Miki

Go Ahead, Tap Your Feet

The cast in "Stepping Out," currently running at the Hickman through April 20th.
"Stepping Out" has got tap dancing in it, a lot of tap dancing, to some great
music of yesteryear. It's also got a very moving story to tell about a group of
people, of different ages and backgrounds, all of whom, for different reasons,
decide to take tap dancing classes in the basement of a church. Most of these
people have never tapped danced before, so you'll see their ups and downs as
they slowly try to advance in their training.
Their instructor, named Mavis, has seven ladies and one gentleman in her
class. But, as you probably can imagine, anytime you get a diverse combination
of people together for a common goal, you're going to get a lot of drama to go
along with it. The main focus of the play is on these dramas that develop in
the lives of the teacher and her students as they work towards their goal of
putting on a recital in front of a real audience.
Tickets are just $15, and you can get them by calling 727-322-0316 for
will-call tickets, or at the door before curtain (cash or checks only). Curtain
times: 8 p.m. on Thursday, Friday and Saturday and 2 p.m. on Sundays.
The Hickman Theater is located on Beach Blvd. at 26th Ave. S., in Gulfport.
There will be plenty of free parking.

Gulfport Mayor's
Corner: Life in Service
By Mayor Sam Henderson

While many
of you know me
from my role in

whi I inih gadu the service US
public service,
others know
me for my role
rin the service
industry. While
I am always
the mayor, three nights a week
I work as a bartender. It is not a
political gimmick, nor is it for fun
(though at times it can be). I do it
to supplement my family income
while I finish graduate school at USF
St. Petersburg. I do it for the same
reason that most of us go to work- to
make money and pay the bills. I spent
several years working restaurants in
my younger days, so it was a natural
fit to join this line of work again due
to the flexible hours. It still allows
me time to handle my mayoral and
scholarly duties.
I had forgotten how hard jobs in
the service industry can be, but it is
all coming back to me. Bartenders
and waitstaff in Florida are paid
$4.91 per hour, according to the U.S.
Department of Labor. That's $3.02
less than the minimum wage. That is
what we earn by law, and the hope is
that the generosity of our clientele in
the form of tips will fill the gap.
Restaurant and bar work is dirty,
sweaty, hot, harried and humbling.
We deal with garbage, dishes, used
napkins, mops, rags and bus tubs,
and occasionally the abusive or
disrespectful guest. We run our

Gabber April 10 -April 16, 2014

behinds off trying to satisfy the
customer, and that is the essence
of the job. While most of the people
we serve understand this, and
show it through their tips, there
are many who do not. A minimum
standard tip for good service today is
18%, while tips of 20% or more are
considered generous indeed. We as
servers appreciate those people, and
remember them. Tipping less than
15% is insulting, and should never
be done unless your server has been
truly negligent. Folks who tip poorly
are remembered too.
Some countries require that their
citizens do a stint in the military.

Perhaps, just to keep us humble, we
should all have to do a stint in the
service industry or retail sales as well.
I think it would help keep a healthy
perspective by reminding us that the
person in the apron, behind the bar
or the register, bringing your food or
cleaning your table, is a person no
more or less important than you or
me. So, be polite and patient with
your servers and bartenders, your
bussers and managers, food runners
and hosts. Expect the same from
them. They work hard for the money,
most of which comes from you. Tip
well, my friends.

By Robert J. Myers, Esq.
Are Trusts Only for
the Super-Rich?
While it is true that you should
have a fair amount of assets before
you consider setting up a trust, a
trust is no longer the province of the
Simply stated, a trust is a legal
document that makes it possible for
you to put aside some of your money
and direct how it will be used upon
your death or in some form of trust,
while you're alive. A trust may also
ease your tax bite.
A trust generally offers several
advantages: among them, the
assets don't have to go through
probate, which saves time and
money. Additionally, you may be

able to maintain control over the
trust assets while you're alive and
capable; sick and incapable; or as
part of an estate plan at your death.
Many individuals and families
have found that trusts offer a
number of interesting financial
planning opportunities. Even where
your estate plan calls for all the
assets of the first-to-die spouse to
pass to the surviving spouse under
the unlimited marital estate tax
deduction, significant estate tax may
be due on the death of the surviving
spouse. Proper use of carefully
drafted non-marital trusts for the
benefit of the surviving spouse and/
or children may keep these assets
out of the surviving spouse's estate
and reduce the overall tax bite on
the estate plan.
So-called "living trusts" have
become very popular with those
interested in avoiding the expense,
delay and publicity of probate; while
allowing the grantor to maintain
control over the trust assets during
his or her lifetime, if capable and

The type of trust you use depends
on your personal situation and the
advice you receive from a legal
expert. Since there are many types
of trusts, only a complete evaluation
of your family's needs will determine
which trust should be used.

Hard Candy4

of.P rftBy Cathy Salustri

It's a Hell of a Town
I just couldn't make myself buy
the "I Love New York" shot glass
at the airport. See, that's the
one thing I collect shot glasses.
They're tiny and serve double duty as
holders for other things, like shells or
vitamins or pennies.
Don't get me wrong: if I want a bagel
the size ofa Yorkie or some of the best
theatre in the world, I'm not arguing
that New York isn't the place to go.
But do I love it?
No, I do not. New York and by this
I mean both the city and the suburbs
- makes me itch like a Navy seaman
on shore leave in Thailand. I'm not
built for the city or the lifestyle. I'm a
Floridian, in every sense of the word.
My cousin Sue and I talked about
this as she drove me to LaGuardia
from Yorktown Heights. She recently
spent two years in Charleston when
our government activated her Coastie
reservist husband.
"There's no pride in anything here,"
she said, bumping over potholes and
gesturing to the trash dumped in
droves somewhere between the Bronx
and the East River. I'm sure she
meant mostly that area, but I realized
then that she was right, mostly. We'd
never let piles of trash accumulate
like that, or put up with potholes the
size of Rhode Island. What followed
was a poignant discussion about the
respect for nature and the way we
in the south are more in tune with
nature than the poor people who
spend months stuck in the slush and
snow every year.
And then I came home to Florida,
and while I in no way think Gulfport
has anything in common with any
town bordering the East River, it does
occur to me that we could be doing a
hell of a lot better on the trash and
potholes front. I love Gulfport, but it
occurred to me as we risked whiplash
to get to the airport, that some streets
and alleys in our city would leave the
same impression with tourists and
more than one local: that we don't
have any pride.
We aren't a pretty town, Gulfport.

Gabber April 10-April 16, 2014

We may be a quirky town, a fun town,
or a town with good food and some art,
but we aren't conventionally pretty.
If you forget the charm and the whole
"waterfront Mayberry" vibe we've got
going, we have some ugliness I think
we maybe don't see anymore. I think
we love our town and our community
so much that maybe we look past
what's wrong with it sometimes and
also why we tend to crucify people
who point out our flaws.
But we're ugly. We have a great
personality, and that's taken us far,
but in the looks department? We
could use some help. That's why I was
thrilled to hear the city manager has
a plan to put some better lights along
the beach and even though it won't
do anything to decrease the amount
of motor oil, fertilizer, and other
contaminants flowing freely into Boca
Ciega Bay pave the beach parking
lot. Thanks to Ward Four councilman
Michael Fridovich's pesky insistence
it might be worth borrowing money to
repair the colander that passes for our
sanitary sewer (and after many years
of some dignified, poorly-cloaked
begging on the part of Public Works
Director Don Sopak), we'll even see
some work starting in that arena.
Good times in Gulfport, indeed. No
Bronx or Queens or Brooklyn here,
no sir. Our trash is all... well, OK,
our trash is still all over the place.
Whether it's litter blowing across
city lines (and plastic bags ballooning
out to the bay) or people who don't
care about leaving garbage set at
the curb for days on end, we have
a beautification problem. We still
have alleys with trash piles and dead
limbs, sunken potholes that aren't
apparently reparable (check behind
the Say-On Seafood sometime after
a storm and you'll see what I mean),
and a few customers who apparently
feel that since they aren't part of
the waterfront district they don't
need adhere to the same community
standards (yes, I'm talking about the
old Winn Dixie plaza, which isn't
exactly our shining star).
Except they're wrong. They're
wrong because you have to drive

through the other parts of town to
get to the downtown, which, thanks
in part to better funding than other
areas, looks lovely. They're wrong
because the rest of us have to live
in those other areas, and you know
what? If I wanted to live in squalor,
I'd move back to the south side of
St. Petersburg and pretend not to
notice the broken communal trash
cans and litter on the streets.
Since I don't, and since we're
officially into budget season, how
about I make a few requests as we
start talking next year's 1Ul' ,.- I
want the city to pick up trash. Period.
I don't care where it is or whether the
property owner calls or who they have
to charge. Pick. It. Up. I want alleys I
can drive through without wondering
if I'll pop a tire in a puddle. I want a
second code enforcement officer and a
more efficient system so we can get
more done. I want our council to give
more thought to how we're going to
serve the residents who moved here
because they were utterly charmed
by the downtown and less thought on
how they're going to stay in office. I
want to revise not our codes but our
code violation timeline so that repeat
offenders don't have a month to cut
their grass every time it gets too
I want people to remember we live in
paradise, because we do. And I want
council to allow our city management
to hold us all to a higher standard. I
don't want to hear 5,237 bureaucratic
reasons we can't simply clean up
our alleys, fix our potholes, or add
more attractive lighting, paths,
and trails outside the waterfront
redevelopment area. I would like
Gulfport all of Gulfport to deserve
the attention the (li.imil-i' and the
Gulfport Merchants Association and
our wonderful businesses get us. I
want a city that charms me in all four
corners. And I'm prepared to pay for
it. Raise my taxes. Go ahead. I triple
dog dare you.
Or, hey, that's cool, leave the trash
and potholes. Because everyone who
leaves New York just tries to recreate
it anyway, right, and since that's
what I remember of New York, that
must be what the city's all about.
After all, as the song goes, it's a hell
of a town.

PRAYER TO ST. JUDE This novena has
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 interces-
sor of all who invoke your special patronage 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 as-
sistance. Help me in my present urgent peti-
tion. 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.

- 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 Forthe
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.

PRAY 9 HAIL MARY'S for 9 days, request 3
wishes, 1 business & 2 impossible. On the 9th
day, publish this article, your wishes will be an-
swered even if you don't believe. M.B.
