This increase should generate an additional $214,000 in revenue for the city. reading of the ordinance making provisions for the price increase. Council also voted to increase its potable, or drinking, water and sewage rates by the same 12%.

16 Gabber September 18 September 24, 2014 Somethin on my mind Somethin on my mindBy Bill Northr op B_Northr op@theGabber. com ISIL is IslamicLet's make two things clear. ISIL is not Islamic No religion condones killing of innocents And it has no vision other than slaughtering who gets in its way." President Barack Obama, September 10, 2014, following the beheading of journalist James Foley. Let's make two things clear: The president is either delusional or ignorant. ISIL is Islamic as have been all these terrorist groups that have been attacking us at home and abroad since the World Trade Center bombing of 1993 twentyone-years ago. They are as one with an extremist version of the Muslim religion. Their goals are a religious state, a caliphate as ISIL says it has already established, ruled by Sharia Muslims as well as all others into their fold. Non compliance is death or sometimes enslavement. There are no innocents in that operation. Yes, they are motivated by secular grievances such as our presence in the Middle East, their holy land, and our support of Israel. But, the underlying root is an extremist form of their religion. It is a holy war. Whether taking down the Trade Center or the shooting at Ft. Hood or the bombings of embassies, the taking of Mosul, or the beheading of journalists, these are done in the name of God. This is what gives it its passion. One wonders why the president is compelled to lead off his speech defending Islam from the obvious that it has a radical wing at war with the rest of the world but one group whose basic premise we don't acknowledge or accept as real. Of course it is important to understand that ISIL, Al-Qaeda, Taliban, or names do not represent all in the Muslim world. However, millions are attracted to the radical movement and the essence is religion. Motivations might be revenge, righting of wrongs, real and perceived, but the cover is the righteousness of God, the certainty of a holy purpose, the allure of a perfect God-directed society of true believers, a world of no uncertainties, and a world of rewards in the afterlife. There are no negotiations, nor disengagements with suicide bombers, people who shoot young girls in the face for pursuing religion, who behead people with joy, who fanatics are at war within their own religion even with their fellow Sunnis and particularly with their both import and export their evil: import to their training grounds in the Middle East and elsewhere, and export back to the rest of the world. We may be war-weary (we think of ten years of war, but it has been twenty), but they are not. We may declare the war over, but it takes two to conclude a war. There are many fronts to this war not just Iraq and Afghanistan. It is more than complicated. Muslim civil and religious. The war between Shias and Sunnis is perpetual and within the Sunni ranks dangerous and poisonous. There is also a war against Christians as well as Buddhists, Hindus, Jews. Political alliances are twisted and torn and temporary. There are religious, family, economic, political, and societal ties globally. It is impossible to disengage. It is impossible to disengage from religion. We had one president who argued president argues about the reality of "what is."

24 Gabber September 18 September 24, 2014 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 "super-rich." 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 opportunities. Even where your estate plan calls for all the assets of surviving spouse under the unlimited marital estate tax deduction, the death of the surviving spouse. Proper use of carefully drafted nonsurviving 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 competent. 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.

It poured down rain, and people stayed, said Messick. They stayed, and they came inside and everybody had fun and when it stopped, everybody came outside and painted. They didnt bail on this; they thought it was something exciting to be a part of. A quote from Aesop is the centerpiece of the mural: No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.

40 Gabber September 18 September 24, 2014 Letters research to know that. There is enough blame to go around and she jumped on it. I'm glad she did. I learned a few things, I always do when I read her columns. Don't shoot the messenger. Anybody think apologies are in order? Cathy's column asked some questions, I hope she gets answers and shares them. Hope you accept my support. Hope these are kind words. PS In the September 4 issue of the Gabber, in the letters to the editor, Margarete Tober wrote taking the artists to task for not following what the city requested. They are, after of funny that each lady expressed similar views on the same subject on the same day. Stan KreuterAdditional commentary from the Gabber's Gulfport Ideas and Opinions Facebook group. Please join us online to read the full discussion and tell us what you think.Last night at the crime watch meeting, we discussed the new and old camera installation. There are no signs you are under surveillance. Do you think we should post signs? Denise Wimmer Lowe Letters to the EditorThe Gabber encourages and welcomes all letters. Please keep letters as brief and to the point as possible. Letters must be signed by the author and may be emailed to email@example.com, mailed or dropped at the Gabbermentary posted to thegabber.com or on Gabber Facebook pages may also appear in the paper. All letters are subject to editing for length and content at the discretion of the editors. The views and opinions expressed in this publication do not necessarily represent the views of the publishers, staff or advertisers. If the idea is to prevent crime, yes... if the idea is to catch criminals no. Metria Jones The cameras, as Metria said, have two functions: deter and catch criminals. However, if a criminal doesn't know there is a camera, he or she is not as likely to look up and actually be caught by the recording. In the case of most car lots, they want you to know light draws your attention to it. Given the fact that the equipment is so sophisticated, a good image is then obtained... So yes, letting it be known that there are cameras is a good idea. It is prudent to avoid crime rather than to try and identify someone after the crime has been committed. Signs are best if the right hardware is there to back them up, and I like Denise Wimmer Lowe's idea making the cameras connect to a live, public Internet link... maybe on the city's web site. Pat Harbachuk With permission from the city I will be temporarily removing my dancer from Clymer Park for warranty work. I am not happy with its durability and feel that I need to reinforce the piece. I plan to remove the piece with in the next couple of days and return it in approximately one week. I apologize for the inconvenience but I don't feel comfortable leaving it the way it is, I am in this for the long haul. Thank you. Tom Pitzen who has two pieces of art in Clymer Park; he found the dancer vandalized twice before posting this. If Swoop works on tips only, what is the suggested amount? Just curious to see what everyone thinks. Jan Lowe I gave them $5 each way to go from our house to GeckoFest. Nicole Spence I gave $5 from the Ivanhoe bldg [Town Shores] to the Casino, maybe 5 blocks, because it was Gecko ball night. But I do not know that I would do $5 each way for that distance on a normal basis. Sally Wilkinson Dear Editor: A generous thank you to all members and friends from American Legion Post 125 for helping us celebrate our dear friend Linda Pearson's life. Your Post can never do enough. Thank you!Kathy KennyDear Editor: RE: Cathy's opinion column, "I Clearly Don't Understand Art in the September 4 Gabber. Since then I've only read negative comments about the column, the latest being the letters in the September 11 issue. That being said, I think I see a woman who could use a kind word. Don't shoot the messenger. I knew City Council voted to buy art for the park, I was against it, but they also had a plan for a sculpture garden with a place for each art piece. The artists agreed to this as well as a delivery time. I for one did not know this. Thanks to Cathy's column we now know all did not go well. Missed deadlines, art work not all around. It doesn't take research to know the ball was dropped. Who breached what? Who knows? Cathy stepped up, things didn't go as agreed and she called people on it, the city and the artists. She pointed out two artists who played by the rules, so it could be done. Cathy learned of broken promises and it didn't take a lot of
Gabber September 18 September 24, 2014 41 Planting, from front page to 50. The project, says Egan-Romanelli, represented a larger movement a movement about going green, but ultimately, about world peace. When we stop and become conscious of our food choices, we become conscious of the power we have to create peace, said Egan-Romanelli. If the earth is depleted and barren, so are we. Egan-Romanelli, explains that this program is being broadened with the help of Seva Art Source, a global art initiative that is a funding center for sane living and nonviolent social activism, according to their website. Volunteers brought various talents and resources to the planting. Nic Weathersbee, of St. Petersburg, helped with digging and planting. Weathersbee owns a company called Urban Microfarms which, he explained, gives free consultations on where to put raised garden beds, as well as teaching people to eat organically and avoid genetically Paul Ray and his partner Wesley Sloat (aka this years Gecko Queen) also volunteered. Ray suggested installing a barbed-wire fence around the Macadamia Nut trees Russel brought her two-year-old son, Otis, along. Otis acted as the groups cheerleader, shaking his maracas and encouraging volunteers. At last, Egan-Romanelli hung a sign read: Eat; Be; Grow; Sustain. She described the different steps, saying, We might be eating, we will be and will eventually be sustaining. Egan-Romanelli thanked all who sponsored a tree, adding that she believes it will be everyones job to maintain the new trees. If you drive by and notice the trees are looking unhealthy, she said, stop by and give them some water.
