by Greg Stemm
Three youngsters were given the prestigious
Gulfport Police Lifesaving medal at Tuesday
evening's council meeting. The three were
honored for their bravery and courage during
a robbery in which both their uncle and father
were shot by the burglars.
On December 22, three unidentified men
robbed the Joy Foodmart store, a family
business located at 1005 49th Street South.
Even though they encountered no resistance,
one of the robbers shot both of the proprietors
at point blank range before emptying the cash
register. The crime was committed in front
of the three youngsters who reacted quickly
and confidently to secure

Carjacking Suspects
Gulfport Police charged two St.
Petersburg youth with being a
principal to armed carjacking.
Tavaris Bradford and Amir Samuels,
both 16 years old, were apprehended
after fleeing from St. Petersburg
officers at approximately 5 p.m. on
January 18.
The car, a 2007 Chevrolet Malibu,
had been stolen the night before in
the 5100 block of Tangerine Avenue
in Gulfport. The victim reported that
he had just pulled into his driveway
when he was attacked by four black,
male teenagers who had driven up in
a blue minivan. One of them had a
gun and struck the victim in the head
after taking his car keys.
Shortly after the carjacking, Sergeant
Joshua Stone of the Gulfport Police
Department saw the Malibu driving
south in the 1000 block of 49th Street.
When he tried to pull the car over,
the driver fled, initiating a pursuit
that ended at 40th Avenue South
and 31st Street when the sergeant
lost sight of the car.

Samules was also charged with
fleeing and eluding police. The other
two offenders have not yet been
identified, but detectives are still

Community Band to
Hold Free Concert
The South Pasadena Community
Band will present a free concert in the
Life Enrichment Center Auditorium
at Pasadena Community Church on
February 5 at 7:30 p.m. The concert
features music by popular American
composer Leroy Anderson.
Max Millspaugh, Musical Director
of the band said "the music of Leroy
Anderson is firmly entrenched in
American pop culture. "Syncopated
Clock" and"BlueTango" arewellknown

examples of Anderson's distinctive
composition style." Millspaugh noted
that Anderson wrote nearly all of his
pieces for orchestra, then transcribed
most of them himself for band. "Leroy
Anderson is considered by many to be
one of America's four greatest 20th
century composers of instrumental
music alongside George Gershwin,
Aaron Copeland, and Charles Ives.
The concert commemorates the 100th
anniversary of Anderson's birth,"
Millspaugh concluded.
A community relations initiative of
the City of South Pasadena and the


City's Cultural Arts Council, the
band has 50 members and presents
a popular concert series annually.
Mayor Dick Holmes noted that
the auditorium, located behind
the church's sanctuary building at
227 70 Street S. in St. Petersburg
has adequate free parking for cars,
vans and buses and the facility is
handicap accessible. "We always look
forward to the band's concerts and
we welcome the folks who come to
enjoy our band", Holmes said.
Future public concert dates for the
2008-2009 season are scheduled for
March 5, April 2 and May 7.

An "elephant in the room" is something

Sometimes we get so concerned about
appearing like we have it all together

Audition for
"Little Mary Sunshine"
St. Petersburg Little Theatre will
hold auditions for "Little Mary
Sunshine" on Monday and Tuesday,
January 26 and 27 at 7 p.m. at the
theatre. They need 13 men various
ages, eight ladies various ages and
two youth one male, one female.
The 1959 original cast album of
Little Mary Sunshine asks "What
ever happened to the operettas?" The
answer is that times have changed and
musicals are very different now. This
show however pokes gentle fun at the
old shows. It's the turn of the century
and the heroine is infinitely pure both
morally and vocally (soprano). The
hero is a rugged forest ranger captain
with a big, baritone voice. Support
comes from the juvenile leads: a
corporal and a maid who sing and
tap or soft shoe. There are six other
rangers and six proper young ladies,
all of whom have character names and
dialogue and numbers without any
principals. The retired German opera
singer, a mezzo, is wooed by a mature
baritone. There are three Indians in
non-singing roles, one is the chief and
another is the villain.
The director, Bill Myerholtz was
active many years as actor/singer
and director with Masque of Temple
Terrace. He won a Lary award
for directing The Lion in Winter
for Kestrel Production. He has an
English and Theatre degree and over
30 years experience in college, semi-
professional and community theatre.
16 bars of music would be appreciated
and music from the show will be
taught. Monologues not needed.
Production dates are April 24-May

Eric Hoang, 11; Andy Hoang, 10;
and Thomas Hoang, 8 took cover
behind the counter while one of
them pressed the emergency alarm
button, one tended to their wounded
uncle and one called 911 to provide
information to the police dispatcher.
"While they did this, the children
were exposed to the possibility
that the robbers might return at
any moment," said Robert Vincent,
acting chief of police. "That they
maintained such composure after
witnessing such an act is nothing
less than amazing.
These young men did not hide
or run away from danger," he
continued. "They faced it and acted
bravely to ensure a swift response.
This action no doubt contributed to
saving the life of their uncle, who was
critically wounded and would have
died without prompt application of
emergency medical assistance."
The police department's lifesaving
medal was created to honor police
employees whose actions contribute
to saving the life of another person.
The awards among the department's
highest honor, and it has never been
presented to anyone other than a
police officer before.
"This case certainly warrants an
exception," said Vincent. "It is our
honor to recognize these young men
for their courage.

A Case of Trolley Folly
Dear Editor: Let's get our priorities
straight, and end this Trolley Folly,
shall we? It's time somebody pointed
out that the trolley to Corey Ave. in
St. Pete Beach is carrying a reported
average 1.5 riders per trip. Making
some broad estimates, that would
amount to revenues of about $1.10
per trip, with discounts or a generous
estimate of about $30 per day. With
364 days of operation that gives us
taxpayers' income of about $11,000
per year. Given an annual budget
of about $250,000 one can easily
see that we are a long, long way
from breaking even. Even if we are
willing to toss out the approximately
$200,000 in grant money, (which is
also provided by us, the taxpayers)
and we only look at the $50,000
being paid out from our Waterfront
Redevelopment Area's taxes, it's still
hard to justify the benefit by looking
at the cost vs. revenue.

The flamingos are cute and tropical,
but I think the Gulfport businesses
would benefit much greater from
adverting on this moving billboard.
If it carries no passengers, at least
the Trolley will be able to be a mode
of advertising.
This is a ridiculous waste of
appropriated grant funds that
could be enhancing the waterfront
business district appearance. I
would like to know what other
options we had for use of this grant
money. What studies were done to
justify this folly? This underused
bus is a poor example of being green
for a city that wants that distinction
so badly.
I hope the council will give it up
and let's cut our losses so we can add

things back, like the hour
our library schedule eac
so we can re-think the c
to make to the GEMS s

r we cut off Holiday Firearm Usage
:h day and Dear Editor: In response to
uts we had a letter last week from Mr. Man-
ystem this ley. One minute after midnight on
New Years I was walking into my
Bonnie Bray house, when it felt like something
the size of a golf ball hit my shoul-
der. Not till my friends pointed out
the mark on my back did I realize it
was a bullet. Luckily it didn't lodge
e. itself in. It seems as though it hit me
emaledto and rolled down my back. While the

creation of wound isn't that bad, if it had hit my
spine or my head it might be a dif-
ferent story. I'm a local artist and
sarily rep- the story has been kind of fun to
joke about to friends, but with the
number of shots I heard that night,
I'm surprised I have not heard more
stories of people being hit. If you ask
me people need to remember New-
ton's law about gravity because it is
definitely still in effect.

I Strokes are associated with carotid blockage. 50% have no warning signs.

2. Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA) ............................................................................... $35
95% of ruptured AAA's result in death. The majority of victims have no symptoms.
3. Arterial Disease (PAD) Test .......................................................................................... $35
Ultrasound Doppler is used to detect poor circulation due to blockage in the extremities. An abnormal PAD test
is a strong indicator of heart disease.
4. Thyroid Ultrasound ...................................................................................................... $35
Scan to rule out cysts, nodules, goiters and tumors.

Screening to view wall motion, valves, enlargements, calcifications, stenosis, prolapse, blood clots,
tumors and fluid around the heart.
Complete Evaluation (All 6 Ultrasounds) ............................................................................ $179

Q. How accurate are these health screenings?
A. Our adherence to stringent protocol, highly trained sonographers, state-of-the-art ultrasound machines, and
board certified interpreting radiologists make the screenings exceedingly accurate. Physician written protocols
ensure consistency and accuracy.
Q. Why should I have these tests if I have no symptoms?
A. It is important to have a screening to identify problems before symptoms arise, potentially avoiding a serious
health crisis. Unfortunately, our body's warning signs often come too late.
Q. Does my doctor do these tests as part of my routine checkup?
A. Most physicians can only prescribe ultrasound tests if you are already having symptoms, not for prevention
reasons. Prevention Plus is here to identify disease before a problem occurs.
No Prescription necessary. These test are not included in routine physical.
STROKE & VASCULAR SCREENING Ultrasound can find smaller & more
curable cancers, before you have symptoms ,
Board-certified physician reads all tests and only registered sonographers perform exams.

You & THE

The Perils of Probate
In an attempt to avoid probate
when she dies, Mary decides to put
her son's name on her two hundred
thousand dollar home. Mary recently
was involved in the probate of her
husband's estate when he died and
Mary wanted to make sure that her
son, Al, did not have to experience
the same expensive procedure on her
death. After the deed was recorded
on the home, Al became a joint owner
with his mother.
Since Al is now legally recognized as
a part owner of Mary's home, Mary
no longer has total control of the
real estate. In fact, Mary must get
Al's consent and signature before she
can list the home for sale, enter into
a lease of the home or put a mort-
gage on the home. In addition, Mary
runs the risk of losing fifty percent
of her homestead exemption which
would then increase the amount of
taxes on the home. Since Al is now
a part owner of the home, his credi-
tors could potentially make a claim
against the home because it is now
one of his assets.
By giving Al a half-interest in the
home, Mary has made a gift of one
hundred thousand dollars to Al. The
Internal Revenue Service only allows
individuals to make tax-free gifts of
up to twelve thousand dollars per
year. As a result, Mary is required
to file a gift tax return and her es-
tate may have to pay gift taxes upon
her death. In addition, if there is a
mortgage and note on the home, each

time Mary makes a mortgage pay-
ment, she is considered to be making
a gift to Al.
Mary could have avoided all of these
potential problems. She could have
retained the home only in her name
and passed the home to Al under the
State of Florida's Homestead Law
which allows that one's solely owned
homestead property goes directly to
her child or children upon death.
If Al inherits the home upon Mary's
death, Al would then own the home
at its "stepped-up basis." What that
means is that Al's cost is only the fair
market value of the home on the date
of Mary's death. If Al were to then
sell the home he would have little
or no income taxes to pay because
of reduced profits resulting from the
stepped-up basis in the home. On the
other hand, if Mary deeds a one-half
interest in her home to Al during her
lifetime, Al's basis in the home would
be what Mary paid for the home
which could potentially be far less
than today's market value. In this
case, if Al sold the property, he likely
would have a sizeable profit on which
taxes would have to be paid.
All considered, Mary's desire to
avoid probate expenses by deeding
part of her home to Al during her life-
time could have some less than favor-
able consequences for both Mary and

By Matthew Margolis

All the Time,
Schmall the Time
In the United States, if one person,
say, kills another person and the
state has the evidence to convict be-
yond a reasonable doubt, the guilty
party goes to jail. The guilty party
is not allowed to cavort amongst the
rest of us non-killers -- even if he
doesn't do it all the time.
Most of us prefer it that way.
So when it comes to dogs, why is it
that this notion that he doesn't do it
all the time carries so much weight?
He growls, but not all the time. He
snaps, but not all the time. He bites,
but he doesn't do it all the time.
Would you snuggle up on the couch
with someone who had stabbed sev-
eral people -- but over the course of
20 years? Would you invite a killer
into your home and explain to your
children that there is nothing to be

afraid of because he doesn't

As difficult as this was to hear, you
made a lot of sense and we are sched-

us some guidance on how to select the
appropriate dog/puppy for our family
and how to train it properly so that
we will have success next time. We
don't want to have our hearts broken
again; we want to do it right. Thank
you so much for caring enough to re-
spond so quickly."
The proof is in the pudding. The
hard thing to hear is sometimes the
right thing to do.

Foster a Fast Friend
Meet Phil, a red fawn greyhound new to retirement. Many
people think greyhounds have small ears, which is mainly
because they often keep them folded back. As you can see
from the photo, they actually have large ears. When the ears
are up it can mean the dog is a curious sort, or outgoing as op-
posed to timid. We don't know much about Phil but just from
his picture, can you guess something about his personality?
Phil currently resides at the kennel so if you would like to foster or adopt him
please contact Greyhound Pets of America on 595-7852 or visit our website: or come see us at the Tyrone PetSmart on most Sundays
from noon to 2 p.m. Call first if you want to meet a specific dog.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). So
much has come together. Monday you
will step back and view your life as a
stranger might. You will find sources
of pride, as well as amusement.
Take note of the many beautiful
circumstances. Due to the obvious
impermanence of special moments,
you are likely to celebrate them for
all they are worth.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). In
some manner you have abandoned
yourself lately by not giving yourself
enough attention. The setting is
perfect for connecting with yourself
in a stronger way this week. Perhaps
you've neglected your need for fun or
nurturing physical care. You'll have
the means to treat yourself as you
would a cherished friend.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Because
of your ability to take relationships to
a deep level you are able to have many
good friends at once. You'll enjoy the
benefits of this all week. For instance,
you can talk to someone you haven't
connected with in a long while and
pick up right where you left off. And
you feel comfortable asking favors of
them, too.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). It's
fun to be part of the scene and
experience all that your generation
has to offer. However, be aware that
much of what you perceive is clever
marketing. Maybe it's a certain car,
a way of doing business or a kind of
plastic surgery. There is an illusion
that "everyone is doing it," though
that is simply untrue.
GEMINI (I.ny 21-June 21). You
have a special appreciation for the
many different kinds of relationships
that enhance your life. The people
who make you feel grounded aren't
always the ones in your inner circle.
The friendly checker at your grocery
store or a mentor you've never met in
person will have a notable positive
impact on your life.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Do what
you do well, and then repeat it until

you have all you desire. Your success
key now is in not giving up when
things get boring -- and they will get
boring, especially around Thursday.
If you can do it once, you can do it
a thousand times. Sagittarius helps
you find new motivation along the
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You'll
mix with successful people, and
it's difficult to refrain from self-
comparison. At least you can put a
positive spin on it. Use the impetus
to contrast your life against another
person's as motivation. And consider
that maybe you already have a
multimillion-dollar idea in your head
and just don't realize it yet.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22).
Sometimes practicalities prevent you
from being as sweet and poetic as you
can be. Responsibilities get lighter
this week and there's more room for
your true personality to play. The
romance that was buried in your
heart is unearthed. You spend joyful
hours alternately expressing and
impressing your love.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Whether
for business or pleasure, you're
looking to partner with people who
are your equals. Don't waste time
tallying up someone's strong points
or trying to figure out how they can
help you. The right partnerships just
feel right. Your intuition leads you to
those with whom you have fantastic
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21).
You are filled with hope and good
intentions as you enter a new arena.
The people are different and you
might not understand what they are
talking about -- it's a new language.
But you're willing to listen and
learn, which is ultimately how you'll
broaden your reach. Before you know
it you'll be an insider.
21). You're truly an open-minded
person, which is why others can't
predict what or whom you'll be into

next. When it comes to making new
friends, looks, social standing and
finances don't influence you in the
least. You are attracted to those who
share a similar essence, and you'll
bond with them this week.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19).
Your sign-mate Benjamin Franklin
suggested you keep your eyes wide
open before marriage, half shut
otherwise. This applies to any
commitment you might enter into
this week. hii.-\\1 observations
going in will save you from an
unhappy future, as will going with
the flow when you've already devoted
This Week's Birthdays: This
year you find new meaning in your
life. There are still many questions,
but answering them doesn't seem
as important as you realize that you
are fulfilling your purpose whether
or not you completely understand it.
With mental ease you will create new
sources of fun. February brings new
members to your fan club. March
shows you strategizing your rise in
an organization, and your plan will
work. The sacrifices you make for
love in June set off a lucky string of

Elvis Kissed Me
Our Civic Association meeting on January 14 was a great success. An almost
capacity audience arrived to a bountiful buffet lunch. After that the main
drawing card was an appearance by Elvis, (aka Billy Lindsey, 52). He was
dressed in a white suit decorated with black eagles and designs and wearing
sunglasses. He really looked very much like the real man. Singing and gyrating
in realistic Elvis style, he captivated his audience. During his performance
he draped colored silky scarves around several ladies as well as gave kisses.
Dancing by some guests made for a lively afternoon and tremendous applause
ended his performance after he had sung almost 20 songs to the delight of his
audience. Several 50/50 chances were won and everyone left in a happy mood.

Staff from the city of Gulfport's parks department help plant a new live oak tree at the
Gulfport Little League field on Friday. Children from the School Year Child Care Program
at the Gulfport Recreation Center addressed those in attendance and gave information
about the tree which was planted as well as the seedling which were handed out free to the
crowd. The seedlings included sabal palms, sugar berry and red bay trees. Members of
the Gulfport Teen Council were on hand to pass out programs and offer refreshments.

Gulfport Garden
r& ^ Bird Club'
By Barbara Dye
Everyone enjoyed touring the
Savannah Plant Nursery on
January 8 and learning about
container gardening. The weather
was nice and the nursery provided
a snack which was very much
appreciated. Thank you, Sarah, for
arranging this program.
The February 13 meeting will be
a self-guided tour of the Florida
Botanical Gardens in Largo. For
those who want to carpool, please
make arrangements to meet at the
Hickman Theater parking lot at
10:45 a.m. If you are not carpooling,
the address of the Florida Botanical
Gardens is 12520 Ulmerton Road.
After the tour, those who are
interested can have lunch at
Sweet Tomatoes in the Largo Mall
at 13101 Seminole Boulevard.
Arrangements for this outing were
made by Cathie Slicker. She may
be reached at 341-1286 if you have
any questions.
Cold Weather Tip: The objective
of covering cold-sensitive plants is
to create a tent which will hold in
heat that radiates from the ground.
Covers can be either cloth or plastic,
but plastic should not touch the
plant since any part which touches
the plastic can freeze.

reps are now enrolling residents for
membership. Dues are $2 and all are
invited to join. Even if you do not play
bocce, you can be a "social" member.
Many games have had to be
rescheduled due to weather, However,
the Friday morning match between
Windsor and Gro/Fax was played in
very cold winds and temps with the
most referees in attendance.
For the week of January 12, the
Buckingham, Diplomat and Jamison
are all tied for 1st Place with 13 wins
and eight losses. The Dover is in 2nd
Place with nine wins and six losses.
The Eton is in 3rd Place with 12 wins
and nine losses. The Nottingham

is only one game difference in the win
column between the first place teams
and the third place team. At this time
of year, many games are canceled due
to weather and the holidays.
Don't forget to change the date on
your calendar for the general meeting

Public Comment

& Council Quotes
Excerpts heard at the January 20, 2009
Gulfport city council meeting

"The city needs to revisit its policies on the size of tents and canopies
at special events. I think the current policies call for tents no larger
than 10 x 10 but I am starting to see larger tents at Art Walks."
-Jeff Perry, Gulfport resident

"The way that the severance package negotiation with the former
city manager was conducted was an abuse of power and full
of corruption. The same was true in the way that the severance
package was negotiated with the former city clerk. You did things
that are not mentioned in our city charter. I think you should step
down Mr. Mayor and Mr. Driscoll...well your time is long past."
John Frieberger, Gulfport resident

"I went to the Arbor Day celebration recently and we were planting
a wonderful new native live oak tree. But right next to it is a non-
native Norfolk island pine. I would like for us to consider passing
an ordinance which would require all indigenous plants in our
parks." Judy Ryerson, Gulfport city council member.

It's no secret that our schools can use some help financially.
We're having a Big Yard Sale Fund Raiser on February 7th
from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the school grounds.
This event can help everyone 3 ways.
1. The school can benefit by the needed funds. You can help
by donating items you no longer use.
2. For those of us who are challenged in these economic times,
we can shop for clothes, toys and just about everything from
soup to nuts and save lots of money.
3. Here's your chance to help the children in our community
as well as yourselves with great bargains.
All donated items can be dropped off at Gulfport Elementary
during school hours. Please use boxes or sturdy black bags.
Any yard sale left-overs are also welcome.
Beside your donations, we need volunteers to assist in big pick-
ups, to help sort and price items or to man the tables at the event.
Gulfport Storage and The Storage House have kindly donated
space for us to store everything until the big day.

stress and money and give you peace
of mind.
"Because the details surrounding a
death occur at a time of tremendous
stress, it makes sense to make as
many arrangements in advance as
you can," said Calamari. "The better
you plan, the less likely the stress of
the moment and the crush of details
ii not to mention the shock of loss
your loved ones will he experiencing
fi will overwhelm them. Planning
ensures that the occasion will turn
out in accordance with your wishes
and not overburden your family or
friends with decisions they may not
be comfortable making."
Calamari continued, "If you act in
advance you can have many of your
questions answered. You can read
and research, inquire with friends
as well as funeral professionals, and
challenge assumptions you may have.
It's surprisinghow many people carry
around erroneous notions about what
is and isn't allowed at funerals."
Calamari says that when making
funeral arrangements in advance ii
for yourself or a loved one fi you'll be
called upon to make many significant
decisions. But you cannot exercise
choice wisely if you don't know what
your options are. Mike takes the
time to carefully go over each of these
options so that you fully understand
them and any costs associated with
"By acting in advance of need,
you're in the best position to examine
questions in depth, give them
significant thought, consult with
others whose feelings you need to
consider, and come to decisions with
which you can be satisfied," said
Cost is always a consideration
and planning in advance can save
you significant money says Calamari
because decisions are being made in

Mike Calamari proldes sensitive, caring and compassionate advice and
guidance for making pre-need end of life decisions.

the death of a loved one. Calamari
says that people tend to make
emotional decisions after the death of
a love one that don't necessarily make
good business sense. He advises that
planning in advance gives you time
to "shop around" and to decide which
services you really want.
"When someone purchases a pre-
need plan they lock in the price and
it can never change. And, at R. Lee
Williams & Son we can work out just
about any kind of pre-need payment
plan. We want people to be able to
afford these services and are willing
to work with you to come up with any
kind of reasonable payment plan,"
said Calamari. "I'd also like to add
that we do not charge any interest on
pre-need payment plans."
Calamari points out that many
people do not know about The Funeral
Rule, which is strictly enforced by
the Federal Trade Commission. It
requires funeral directors to give you
itemized prices in person or, if you
ask, over the phone. The Rule also
requires funeral directors to give you
other information about their goods
and services. For example if you ask
about funeral arrangement in person,
the funeral home must give you a
written price list to keep that shows
the goods and services the home
offers. If you want to buy a casket
or outer burial container, the funeral
provider must show you descriptions
of the available selections and prices
before actually showing you the
rF :> .'. -i. ,

Much of what goes into a successful
pre-need plan is working with
a funeral professional who has
experience and is willing to take the
time to lsten to your concerns and
help you identify what your needs
really are. Calamari has over 19
years of experience in this business
and is the kind of person who is
genuinely concerned about each
client. He recognizes how difficult
these decisions can be and spends a
great deal of time in his consultations
with clients just listening.
"rhe more information I can
provide to you after listening to what
your needs and wants are, the better
able you will be to make informed
decisions and reducing stress for you
and your loved ones and saving you
money," said Calamari, "I Ireally like
being able to help individuals work
through these difficult decisions and
make the best choices for their own

Witness to History

De~p WorUd


*ta?s,M .

America is looking forward to "change".

By Leigh Clifton

On a bitter cold January
20, 2009 in Washington
DC, I became a witness to
history; among a throng
of two million souls, I was
intimately connected to
them in a way I had never
experienced. I stood among
Whites, African Americans,
Asians, American Indians,
Hindu, and Muslim. I stood
shoulder to shoulder with
old black men, fur-coat
bedecked women and wide-
eyed children, all whom
bonded together to become
to watch the improbability
of black junior Senator from
Chicago take the oath of
office and pledge his blood,
faith and toil to a nation who
sorely needed a new leader.
I watched as thousands of
people greetedone another as
friends and smile, remaining
incredibly polite even as we
stood in line for hours at a
time, waiting to take our
ticketed places on the mall
in front of the Capital. I
looked up and saw snipers
on rooftops and helicopters
flying vigilantly overhead. I

was comforted and disturbed
by this at the same time,
because I realized that
as unprecedented as this
Inauguration was, the very
real possibility of extremists
who might try to make a
statement was ever present.
The security screening
process was fairly extensive,
but some walked right by us
without the required tickets.
I guess when there are over
two million people that was
bound to happen.
I saw grown men cry, tears
streaming unabashedly
down wizened cheeks and old
women, who had experienced
the persecution of their race,
raise their hands to the sky
in jubilation and dance with
pure joy. I stood among all
this exuberance and was
awed by the simplicity of the
moment. Everyone stood in
respective silence as Barack
Obama stood in front of
Supreme Court Chief Justice
John Roberts, andrecitedthe
oath of office... a bit thrown
off track momentarily when
the justice reversed part of
the words... then recovered
to finish and then begin his

walk to destiny, bind tog
To be among this multitude, make....
to walk with them for miles
when the DC police closed
the Metro stops and groaned
with them at the inefficiency
of it all was an experience I
wouldn't have traded for the
world. I felt included, filled
with hope and grateful to
friends that I stayed with
that allowed me to attend
such a momentous event.
My heart will remember this
time in my life and cherish
the specialness of this Over 36

The Silver Whistle Deals with Growing Old
By Cathy Salustri

The Gulfport
Community Players
opened their pro-
duction of Robert -
McEnroe's The Sil-
ver Whistle on Jan-
uary 8. The play, set
in a church nursing
home, attempts to
deal with the idea of
getting old with hu-
mor (among other
This show would have challenged a seasoned director, and for a first-time
director Jim Russell made an admirable attempt. He delivers a show with
highs and some lows but overall gives audiences a show mostly worth see-
Victor Carr (Mr. Beebe) makes this production worthwhile; he defines the
role. In past shows he was either miscast or poorly directed, but the role of
Mr. Beebe seems written for him. He hits all the right spots and makes the
audiences laugh, as does Eileen Navarro (Mrs. Hanmer), although it took
her a few minutes to slide into her role. After the first few lines, though, she
fell into her role and soon reminded me of my grandmother on one of her less
pleasant days.
The Silver Whistle deals with growing old, and as such it required older
actors, something not seen frequently in staged plays. This play had the op-
portunity to showcase a lot of local talent that no longer has the same oppor-
tunity to play leading roles.
That said, the younger players in this show couldn't quite match some of
the more mature players. Some of them do a fine job, such as Eve Brown
(Miss Tripp). Eric Dawson (Mr. Erwenter) is just plain fun to look at onstage,
although he could pick up his pace a bit and not suffer for it, as could Scott
Bourdon (Reverend Watson).
Tim Mathews (Emmett) leads the younger players in this show but, like
Olga Kruse (Ms. Reddy) doesn't get enough stage time. Mathews shone this
Christmas in A Christmas Carol and Kruse owns a stage every time she
walks on it, so both of these performances added little bonuses to the show
here and there.
Bill Rucker designed the set, which had a distinctive post-apocalyptic feel,
enhanced by Frank Hale's light design. The lights and set together had mo-
ments where it felt more like Auschwitz must have than a nursing home,
which I suspect was kind of the point of the show.
This play mixes humor with reality and handles it well, despite any hiccups.
Act III delights with some wonderful moments onstage, although I admit the
end confused me a bit.
Overall, the show has problems but for Russell's directorial debut he does a
good enough job that the evening isn't wasted if you go see the show. As the
Gulfport Community Players do more shows of this depth they will get better
at doing them, and I hope they continue to select shows like this one. Even
if it didn't always hit the mark, it adds something to the arts community to
have shows like it on a community theatre level.
The Silver Whistle runs through this weekend at the Catherine Hickman
Theatre. Call 322-0316 for tickets.

lights all roads so that I can attain my goal, you
who give me the divine gifts to forgive and for-
get all evil against me and that in all instances
of my life you are with me, I want in this short
prayer to thank you for all things and confirm
once again that I never want to be separated
from you, even in spite of all material illusions.
I wish to be with you, in eternal glory. Thank
you for your mercy toward me and mine.
