Lady Pirate
Football Victory!
By Leigh Clifton
The Lady Pirates Girls varsity
football team had somethmg to
prove Tuesday might that they
could wm a game Not only did
they win decsively, they beat
East Lake High, a school with a
2-0 record 19-6, a strong showing
for a team tha s been takmg a lot
of lmps lately
Coach Tin Henson credits the
change of heart wth a change
m his front hne Movmg Tory
Stephens to quarterback, he
moved Liz Hill to the Z rceiver/
wtde out position, a switch he
says sparked the team and got
them motivated
"Tory throws the ball so hard,
I was afrad that those girls
wouldn't be able tocatcht," Coach
Henson laughed "But they held
onto t (the ball) and we scored
three tbmes "
Coach Henson now feels the
grls are on the nght track
"We just needed to make a few
adjustments Is still ral early m
the season I think we might have
found the perfect formula with
our team"

Boots the Cat makes BCYC home after
Hurricane Ike floods Galveston.
By Lelgh Clifton

The Boca Clega Yacht Club has
inducted its newest club member,
but he's not much of a sailor. In fact,
he would probably be very content to
never see water again. Boots the cat,
a refugee from hurricane-ravaged
Galveston, Texas arrived in Florida
after the Pinellas County Humane
Society accepted many displaced
animals left homeless after Hurricane
Ike. Boots had been the "house cat' of
a popular beach bar in Galveston and
was rescued by local fireman and sent
to Florida.
In December, BCYC was looking for
a second house cat for the club. Matey,
the resident mouser, was slowing down
a bit and BCYC thought some new blood would help with the duties. BCYC
elected to give the abandoned kitty a fresh start and good home.
Boots the Cat is slowly being acclimated to his new digs and can hopefully
soon enjoy the (occasional) "beach bar" atmosphere that BCYC is known for.
He should feel right at home. For now, he resides in the ladies bathroom at the
Club, sitting on the top of the cabinet, where he can view his world from eye
level through the open door.

Clammy to the Rescue
A fun time was had by all at
The Drunken Clam's "Lo Country
Boil" and fundraiser that was held
Saturday, March 14. During the event
the customers and staff raised $1250
through food sales, auctions and the
corn hole tournament. Collections on
the auctions should be completed by
early next week. And to our wonder
and surprise a "Clam regular", Charles
Collom of St. Pete Beach, stepped
up to the challenge and donated the
balance of $1250. Now the donation
of the stairwell ventilator fan can
be made to the St. Pete Beach Fire
Department. Everyone is so happy
they can contribute this important
piece of equipment for our fire and
rescue teams. Thanks to all our
customers in making our fundraiser
a success. And a double thanks to
Charles for his generous donation
to complete the amount needed. The
Drunken Clam is located at 46-46
Avenue, St. Pete Beach. Call 360-

Adult Dance Class

John 893-1079 or Sarah 510-7231

April 6 to ensure they have a seat
at one of the tables.

JoEllen Sehilke, owner of The Globe Coffee Lounge, St. Pete: "As I understand
it, those contracts these AIG execs signed can be modified by the courts But I thonk
the fact that they use the argument that they have tls agreement to pay the AIG
execs so much money in order to oetam them is absolutely ndoculous Anmcentive to
the "best and blghtest to stay with the company Give me a break' Where are they
gomg to go? Its an employees market out there Who would want to hlre the guys
that engpeered the collapse of the economy? There not the best and the brightest,
there the greedest They show a complete lack of shame that is appalhng I hear
these analysts that go on a tirade about how the mortgage llsns Is what fuehlg the
downturn, that it's all those people who got overextended credit for their homes and
nm owcattmake thepayrments Itsnotthosepeople, fthe guys who bankluptedther
compares and then paod themselves bonuses wth the money the government gave
Stem for a balout' Bonuses are based on performance As abusmess owner of over ten
years, I expect my employees to do a good job, and I try to reward them Sometimes
its money, sometimes s a day off or a small gft I thmk they might hke to show how
much I appreciate them But they certainly don't get a $165 milhon dollars bonus'"

Jim Flannery, St. Pete: "I thmk it's disgustmg but the government should have
had sometlnng m place to watchdog how the money was bemg used These compares
are gpvmg out bonuses that were not earned That's the whole pomt of a bonus
a reward for a job well done When I worked m the corporate world I and my
colleagues received a quarterly bonus, but we only received it if we met our goal,
quota or we did our ob well So how can these guys justify gvmg out money to execs
who essentially worked the company m the first place, especially when the company
is m such dre strmts? It's simple, you dont award executives of failmg compares
money they dldnt earnt

Laura Cidoni, So. Pasadena: "I couldn't be anger about allths mess It's obscene,
outrageous and a complete msult to the Amerncan people The fact that they have to
pay the top people huge bonuses, due to some contract that they had signed before
they took money from the Amercan people is uconscionable Those same people
whose money balled AIG out are now themselves losmg their homes and their jobs
Unemployment is now the lhghest its been smce the Great Depression I honestly
dont know how anybody at AIG can sleep at might' The gap between the haves and
the have-nots is growg wider and wider and I dont thmk that AIG shows any solal
responsiblhty towards that I feel that everybody has to be responsible to help others
out, its our obhgatlon and we owe it to the people who have less than we do Ift's a
moral and socially responsible thmg to do So how can those exes just turn a blend eye
and take all that money" ...

Earl Duncan, owner Holmes Shoe Repair, St. Pete: 'I dont thmk they should
get bonuses Bonuses are based on perfo-mance, the only performance I can see is
that they ran AIG into the ground They should be -unmng away with their tools
between their legs, not paymg themselves for their mistakes They are responsible
for what happened to their own company As a sole proprietor of a small busmess, I
have to be my best employee, l I run my business mto the ground, I would definitely
not expect a bonus for it' As to the legahty of those contracts that allow them to
get this money, it seems that the defimtlon of "bonus" is getting stretched a httle
tlhm Bonuses are gpven when you do somethmg of value for your company and they
should not be guaranteed in a contract I thmk that negotiations of a contract for
bonuses should be based on what you bh g in to the company, not what you take out
or lose Legally, I tlnk, that can be fought I also thmk that the execs knew about
the tmunelme last year, and when the company started to tank, they just wanted to
take the money and run"

Costly Follies
H.L. Mencken said, "The most
costly of all follies is to believe pas-
sionately in the palpably not true. It
is the chief occupation of mankind."
The following letter from a reader
demonstrates that it is certainly the
chief occupation of those who cham-
pion the compamnonship of a particu-
lar canine at any cost.
"We recently got an 8-month-old
yellow lab from a family with three
small children. The lady said the dog
could be aggressive and had nipped
at her 2-year-old.
"She is a very nervous puppy --
jumps at the slightest movement or


noise. She also jumps and twitches
when she sleeps. We have experi-
enced her aggression now, and it is
quite scary. The second morning we
had her, something spooked her and
she would not let us near our truck.
The doors were all open, and she
sat in the driver's seat growling and
showing her teeth. I got a treat and
put it on the ground near us. When I
said "release," she got out, snatched
the treat and jumped right back in.
She calmed down, but was nervous
all day after that.
"She has showed her teeth a few
times, and we're not sure how to
handle it. I read that it isn't always
good to approach or discipline her
when she is showing her teeth and

growling because it could initiate
an attack. I know that she is scared
and confused. Within one week she
stayed in four different houses, with
all new people. We've had her for a
week, and we'd love to keep her. We
have no children, but we have meces
and nephews around often. We need
to break her of these aggressive be-
haviors or we will not be able to run
the risk of her hurting a child.
"She is a good dog -- excellent when
playing fetch, gives up the ball or
toy every time. However, she gets
aggressive with some of her toys
when indoors. We gave her a pig's
ear last night and she got extremely
aggressive. Every time we moved,
she growled and showed her teeth
-- even when we were nowhere near
her. She came out of it, but again
she was nervous for the rest of the
This is akin to buying a car with no
brakes because you hke the ashtray
and don't smoke. With all the great
dogs in shelters that need homes,
why insist on the one you know is
aggressive? It is one thing to root
for the underdog and quite another
to invite the snarling underdog to
share your home.
Did John Lennon do us all in when
he wrote "All You Need is Love"? The
40 years that have transpired since
that release have taught me that
this, like so many other missives of
the 1960s, does not literally apply to
everyday hfe.
When it comes to aggressive dogs,
you need more than love. You need
an excess of time, an arsenal of ex-
perience and techmque, and a back-
up plan for that moment when you
realize some things can't be fixed.
Now what?
This dog requires professional help
and, as is, cannot be around chil-
dren. Her aggression is tenfold: She's
possessive, territorial and fearful.
It's hke living with a three-headed
rattlesnake, and, as the Roman sati-
rist Horace put it, "as crazy as haul-
ing timber into the woods."

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Are
your goals exciting enough? If you
find that you're not sticking to
the plan, it just might be that the
rewards are not yet desirable enough
for you. There are some things you
only want because you think you
should. Ehminate those from your
hst and dream up something that's
absolutely irresistible to you.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20).
You'll experience a lucky reversal of
attitude. Maybe you'll decide that you
can no longer accept a circumstance
you used to think was just fine. Or
maybe you'll decide that something
you couldn't accept before is actually
not so bad. Either way, your new way
of seeing things will berate you and
change your destiny.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Your
hfe is evolving, your schedule is
changing, and your habits follow suit.
A style update serves you well during
this transitional penod. While you're
out Tuesday or Wednesday, you'll see
someone who looks great. Regard the
elements used to create the effect.
Borrow some of these ideas for the
new you.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Many
people will not aim to be patient,
tolerant and understanding. It feels
to them to be too passive of a goal.
You, however, see how hfe could
become a slice of heaven were you to
relax and accept others. You get why
this is worth working at, and work at
it you will. Each day you grow in love
and compassion.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You have
a problem. You approached it the
same way over and over and came
up with the same solutions, too --
they didn't work. Instead of asking
yourself how you can make it better,
ask how you can make it worse.
Thinking in reverse will stimulate
your creativity. You'll find a brilliant,
workable solution. VIRGO
(Aug. 23-Sept. 22). To achieve your
dreams you must do two things:

understand what other people want,
and communicate what you want.
This week is about improving your
communication skills. Don't pass up
the opportunity to connect. Practice
with people you meet while waiting
in a lobby, walking about or making
a purchase.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You're
already on the path to great love and
compassion. Recogmze the abundant
goodin you andit will grow. You don't
need a guru to tell you how to be a
better person. Furthermore, you don't
have to be spiritually enhghtened to
get along with others. Down-to-earth
simple courtesy works just fine.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21).
Fear is insidious. It keeps a person
quiet when they should speak up. It
makes a person stay small instead
of growing their talents. You have it
inside you to teach fear a lesson this
week. One courageous gesture is all
it takes. Thursday and Friday you
will feel especially bold. Show your
fear that you're the boss.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21).
You're a really good friend. Your
relationships are based on enjoyment
and not need. You accept that people
are busy with their lives, and you
don't mind if that business doesn't
always involve you. Someone might
be leaning heavily on your emotions.
Recognize this as something other
than friendship.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19).
Getting to know a different group
of people will excite your creativity.
Pursue new hobbies, games and
interests. You could use the
additional outlet to release everyday
tensions. Also, you are so attractive
as a beginner. Helpful people will
want to take you under their wing
and show you how things are done.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18).
Do what's right and keep an open
mind through this wild, eventful
week. You may indirectly benefit
from someone's seeming misfortune.


Gabe is evrwee!316

However, don't be too quick to feel
guilty about this. Good luck and bad
luck are difficult to tell apart. Also,
this turn of events is a co-creation
with you and the other person.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20).
You feel free to express yourself.
How you spend your money is self-
expression, too. As those around you

Attorney Keith Sanders Handles Bankruptcies with Experience and Sensitivity
By Greg St

guess you could say my motto
is 'been there, done that',"
Says Keith Sanders, from the
law office of Andre Keith Sanders,
He says that for two reasons. First,
he says his more than 17 years of ex-
perience 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 Chap-
ter 13 bankruptcy himself a few years
ago. 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 I when I
tell them how embarrassing it was for
me to have to stand in front of judg-
es 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 MYSELF."
"You know, in 99 percent of bank-
ruptcy cases the situation is that bad
things happen to good people and then
they have gotten into a bad situation.
They have gone through an expensive
health crisis or a divorce or perhaps
someone has just gotten in over their
head with debt. It's very easy in to-
day's consumer driven society for that
to happen," said Sanders.
Sanders offers a free initial consul-
tation with no set time limit on it. "It
might take 20 minutes or it might
take two hours, it just depends of the
client's individual set of circumstanc-
es," he said. 'We can meet at their
home or in my office, we can even so
it over the phone if I they can provide
me with the financial information we
need to discuss their situation." Sand-
ers says that he can often offer other
solutions besides bankruptcy such
as re-negotiating payment schedules
with creditors or reorganizing per-
sonal finances. "For example, I often
have people who can avoid bankrupt-
cy if they just get out from under the

Gabber March 26 April 1, 2009

burden of a house they can no longer
afford because of a job loss or some
other situation," he noted.
He moved to the Tampa Bay area
in July 2005 from Atlanta where he
was a partnerlowner of Hamilton &
Sanders, LLC a firm specializing in
consumer bankruptcy and real estate
closings. The firm regularly filed
between 40-60 bankruptcy cases a
month. Prior to that he worked for
three other major law firms in At-
lanta from 1992 to 2003. All three
firms specialized in consumer bank-
ruptcy cases. He began his career as
a staff attorney for the United States
Trustee in Atlanta. He is licensed
to practice law in both Florida and
"I like what I do because I feel like I
can help people get a fresh start," said
Sanders. "When you have financial
difficulties it can really affect your
entire life. It has negative implica-
tions on you emotionally and it can
even damage or ruin your personal
relationships. I do try and encourage
people to come see me early on, even
if they are just starting to get behind
in payments or feel they are in over
their head. If you can start working
with an attorney from the very start
it can really reduce your stress level
as I can atop harassing creditor calls.
I can also see if we can work out ar-
rangements that a creditor might not
consider when working directly with
my client."
"Since the initial consultation is
Pad Advertlsement-

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 so-
lution for you. As an experienced pro-
fessional, I can help you sort through
those issues and see what is right for
you," he noted.
Sanders has held a number of semi-
nars and written professional papers
concerning bankruptcy law in gen-
eral, ECF requirements and new is-
sues. He is a former director of the
Bankruptcy Section of the State Bar
of Georgia.
Outside of the courtroom, Sanders
lives in an unusual home in Gulfport
that was one of the featured prop-
erties in last year's Pink Flamingo
Tour of Homes. It has a tree grow-
ing right up through the floor and
up through the ceiling of his kitchen.
He has three dogs and a cat. When
he was living in Atlanta he was very
involved with helping raise funds for
a number of AIDS service organiza-
tions. He is hoping to get involved
with local charitable groups as soon
as possible.

Trying Out the New Equipment

Newly elected Gulfport council member Sam Henderson gets some lessons on the use of
the new exercise equipment at the Gulfport Senior Center from Richard Chapman, owner of
Shapemaster. Shapemaster sold the equipment to the center at a discount rate. The new
equipment is unique in that it lets the user set their own pace and exercise level. There is no
"no pain no gain" philosophy, users exercise in smooth, fluid motions. The new equipment
joins several treadmills and a stationary bike that were added to the Center's new fitness
room recently. The Gulfport Senior Center Foundation has paid for all of the equipment.
They hosted an open house on Monday for members and benefactors.

Doggie Paws Rescue
Needs Volunteers
Florida Doggie Paws Rescue, Inc.
is an all-volunteer foster-based
organization. This grass roots
rescue organization was formed
one year ago by seven dedicated
people with one common goal: to
save the dogs. The group's mission
is to responsibly rescue, rehabilitate,
foster and find permanent loving
homes for unwanted, abandoned and
abused small-to-medium breed dogs
throughout the state of Florida.
The Rescue was established at
the end of January 2007 and by the
end of December, over 130 dogs had
been rescued, and over 100 of them
had been placed in their "forever
homes". Most of the dogs came from
Levy County Animal Services where
animals are euthanized after only six
days if someone doesn't come to their

aid. All of these rescued animals have
turned into happy, healthy, well-
adjusted dogs because of the love,
care and commitment of the volun-
teers of Florida Doggie Paws Rescue.
The Rescue promotes the reali-
ties of pet ownership, educating the
public concerning pet overpopula-
tion and the importance of spay-
ing and neutering pets; humane
treatment of animals through edu-
cation and public awareness; and
microchipping pets so that a lost
pet can be reunited with its family.
Volunteers are always needed to
accomplish the Rescue's mission.
Foster homes for the dogs are an
essential part of the Rescue. In ad-
dition, there are many other tasks
to be completed computer work,
phone calls, event planning, fund-
raising, correspondence, etc. All do-
nations received go toward expenses
for the medical care of the dogs and
for keeping the web site, post of-
fice box and telephone functioning.

Rethinking Drinking
Forget the notion that older folks
are smarter drinkers. When it comes
to knowing whether you're alcohol-
impaired, younger imbibers appear
to know better.
University of Florida researchers
conducted an experiment with 42
adults, half between the ages of 50
and 74, the other half ages 25 to 35.
The participants were given either a
carefully calibrated alcoholic drink
(roughly the equivalent of a couple of
glasses of wine) or a similar tasting
placebo. Then they were asked to
perform tests of motor skills and
rate their level of intoxication.
The older participants typically
performed worse on the motor
skills tests, but consistently
underestimated their drunkenness.
One possible reasons, said Sara Jo
Nixon, the senior investigator: As
people get older, they become inured
to the effects of social drinking.
Electrochemical messages travel
through the body at roughly 200
miles per hour. Your brain receives
signals of sight, touch, cold or

warmth in just 0.1 to 0.2 seconds.
Smell takes a little longer: 0.3
seconds. Pain lingers: 0.7 seconds.
C-spine -- shorthand for cervical
spine or the neck
A new study reports that between
1990 and 2006 an average of 2,800
children under the age of 20 visited
emergency rooms after falling out of
treehouses. The study did not say
how many people older than 20 fell
The most common injuries were
fractures (37 percent), bruises (20
percent) and cuts (20 percent) to the
upper body. Researchers found that
falls greater than 10 feet tripled the
odds of hospitalization.
Study investigators suggest
government intervention.
"Treehouse safety deserves special
attention because of the potential for
serious injury or death due to falls
from great heights, as well as the
absence of national or regional safety
standards," said Lara McKenzie of
the Center for Injury Research and

First Annual Gabber Garage Sale Awards
By Cathy Salustri
Twice a year Gulfport hosts a citywide yard sale. Traditionally The Gab-
ber sends a reporter out to the sales armed with a wish list and asks that
they report back. This year The Gabber created the quite unofficial first
annual Gabber Garage Sale Awards. The incredibly unscientific judging
process involved a reporter shopping as many garage sales as possible,
including the Nautical Flea Market and the flea market at the Gulfport
Recreation Center.
By morning's end, the judge awarded winners in the following catego-
Best Value: Full wicker patio set (loveseat, chair, ottoman, end table) for
ten dollars.
Quirkiest Item: Faux dreadlocks, purchased and likely worn by Dallas
Bohrer of Blueberry Patch fame.
Most Useless Item: Redneck wind chimes (beer cans strung together)
Item a Fifth-Grader Has Likely Never Seen: Cassette Tapes and VHS
Frequently Occurring Item: Analog television sets
Winners receive complimentary issue of The Gabber; please come by
our office to claim your prize. Void where prohibited by law.

2veayday Cheap$kate
By Mary Hunt

Feeling Poor Is Not a
Financial Condition
It's no secret that Americans are in
credit card debt up to their eyeballs.
To what can we attribute this colos-
sal "living beyond our means" phe-
nomenon? I don't think it's because
we've had too many emergencies, and
that's why we all have credit cards,
right? It's because we don't ever want
to feel poor.
Let me define the term "feeling poor."
It's a sad, sorry feeling of inferiority.
It's that feeling you get when faced
with an invitation to join all of your
rich co-workers for a chichi lunch and
you've got $8.43 to last until payday.
It's that feeling you get when you see
a commercial for the coolest car on
earth and all you have is a 10-year-
old clunker.
When you feel poor, the worst thing
you can do is spend money. Sure,
that might make the feeling go away
for a time. But as soon as you realize
you've plunged yourself deeper into
debt and made your situation worse,
you'll feel even poorer. It's a vicious
cycle that comes to no good end.
I have a better idea: Stop feel-
ing poor in the first place. Here are
three things you can do that will help
change your attitude:
1. Commit to a Clean Car. No mat-
ter how old, how scratched or how
ugly, if you keep your car sparkling
clean inside and out, you won't feel
poor. Remove every coffee cup, every
paper and every item other than the

emergency equipment in the trunk
every time you leave the car. Wash it
weekly. Make sure the windows are
spotless, the tires scrubbed and the
chrome shiny. You'll feel like a mil-
lion bucks.
2. Curb the Clutter. I don't care how
clean your house may be. If you have
clutter, it's pulling you down. Clear
your closets, drawers, cupboards,
garage and counters of everything
that you do not need. Open space,
tranquility and simplicity will chase
away feelings of poverty. Clutter in-
vites chaos, which leads to depres-
sion and feelings of deprivation.
3. Tuck a C-note. A "C-note" is a
$100 bill. I want you to get one, fold it
neatly and tuck it into a secret place
in your wallet. Just like that, you no
longer will feel poor. That C-note will
make you feel prosperous, and you
are not likely to spend it on a whim.
In fact, you are not likely to spend it
at all. Breaking a $100 bill is a big
deal. You wouldn't do that for a ham-
burger and fries. You sure wouldn't
do that to convince the co-workers
that you can afford to eat sushi with
them instead of the bagged lunch you
brought to work. That would be ri-
diculous, right?
If you don't have $100 to spare, start
with a $20 bill. Then trade it for a 50.
Before you know it, you'll have Ben-
jamin in your pocket, hidden away.
Feeling poor is not a financial condi-
tion. It is a state of mind and some-
thing you can change.

Little tiny boxes. That's
all life comes down to,
really. You start it out
in a hospital room-that's
the first box--and, eventually,
most end in some sort of box
as well. Every stop along
the way is just another box,
Which is why it amazes me
that the world's economy
tanked because of them.
Change a few regulations
about how people can finance
their homes and all of a
are collapsing, at least
I never quite got the point
of the boxes, to be honest.
I think that's because my
parents made sure I never
really had to worry about a
home to keep the rain out
and the love in. We moved
three times in my life, and
my parents haven't moved
since 1980. I always have a
home with them if I need it
(and if my mother and I can
live together without one of
us killing the other.). Home
ownership ranks right up
there with food and water for
my parents.
Now, me, I'm another story.
I possess what most kindly
call "nomadic tendencies"
and move as the mood strikes
me. In two decades since I left
home I've moved 12 times,
not counting college dorms.
Thank god for the invention
of the computerized address
book because I've used up all
the "S" pages in my mom's
paper one. I like to think
of myself as steady but not
necessarily stable. I'm not

to say, when
you move on the average
of once every 17 months or
so, mortgages aren't the
smartest choices. I'm also
staring down some negative
credit repercussions and I'm
self-employed, so I'll stick to
renting, thank you.
Moving is really just
switching boxes, if you think
about it. Most people trade
up when they move, but this
time around I chose a view
over space: a place on the
My "studio" apartment-all
220 square feet of it-makes
me smile. Kindly put, I'm
renting a charming studio
apartment a few blocks from
the Gulf. Realistically stated,
I live in an oversized broom
closet with a kitchen. Had
I wanted a housewarming
party it would have consisted
of a conga line in and out
again with my friends
arriving in shifts.
But you know what? My
front door opens up to a
jasmine-lined courtyard and
it takes me two minutes
to get to the beach for the
sunset. I've squeezed my
dresser in my closet and
college students would reject
my refrigerator because it
won't hold a full case of beer.
I don't care; I can leave my
door unlocked while I check
the mail or walk Calypso.
Going from a two bedroom
house to a storage shed with
great light necessitated
some streamlining, and I've
done two things that stop
most people cold: I don't own
a television or a microwave.

47 ercxlhyME

This doesn't bother folks as
much as the next thing I'm
about to admit:
I don't want a television or
a microwave.
Everyone wants me to
have one, it seems. People
try and give them to me on
an almost daily basis. When
my parents first visited they,
ever the good parents who
worry about their slightly off-
center adult daughter who
makes what they describe
on a good day as "peculiar"
choices, inquire politely if
the lack of a microwave is an
issue of money.
I glance around the broom
closet, shimmy sideways
past my mother to get to a
chair, and tell them no, that
it is an issue of space. I then
ask my mother how to reheat
something on the stove,
whereby she hangs her head
in her hands and moans
something that sounds
suspiciously like, "All that
money for your education...
college... wasted."
It's not just my parents in
shock, although before today
they were the only ones who
knew I lacked fundamental
knowledge on how to reheat
things on a stovetop. It
seems to bother people on
some primal level that I
can't make aLean Cuisine or
watch House at will. These
dinners and first-run
network programming-
snuck into the American
psyche somewhere in the
last 50 years and became
almost as unavoidable as
death and taxes. I'm eating
healthier and getting more
exercise instead of letting
my eyes glaze over in front
of a TV, but that seems lost

46 Gabber March 26 April 1, 2009

on most people; I may as well
tell people I surrendered my
roof or sink.
Not so long ago, really, I
lived in a much bigger house
with two living rooms and
three bathrooms. The family
room dwarfed my current
apartment and I wanted
for nothing tangible. Funny
thing, though: I've steadily
traded down every move
since and I've found I love
the process of streamlining,
of throwing things out
and seeing what I can do
I doubt I would have made
this move had the economy
not failed us. I likely would
have sold my house when
things got too rough and
bought some other house
somewhere else. But then I
wouldn't walk on the beach
every night at sunset or
learn how to reheat food the
"old-fashioned" way or walk
with Calypso down to the
water in the morning.
No doubt I'd be happy
wherever I ended up in that
scenario, but right now I love
my little apartment, which I
painted aqua and coral and
lime and teal. Right now it's
home. Right now I don't need
a microwave.
I'm sure I won't stay here
forever. One day I'll pack my
stuff in boxes and put it in a
different box: perhaps a box
with more space, or maybe
a floating box. I may even
find a box with room for a
microwave. I'll paint over the
pink and blue and green and
yellow and pull the door shut
behind me and surrender the
keys and I'll head off for the
next adventure.
It's just another box to me.

W whatever has happened to sex
education? Not that I really
care one way or another
whether it's taught in schools or not.
However, my question is what is it
supposed to accomplish?
Recent statistics, if I recall correctly,
(in other words, don't hold me to it)
indicate that 35 per cent of whites
and 70 per cent of blacks are born
out-of-wedlock. I can't recall reading
the statistics for Pinellas County.
However, the most recent statistic
(this I'm sure of) is that nationwide
40 per cent of all births are out of
wedlock. This late statistic doesn't
mean that all the births are to single
mothers, but that many don't choose
to get married. Guess they don't want
to make a big commitment.
However, it's the "uh-oh I'm
pregnant" that is the problem. There
is a direct link to single mothers
and poverty and all sorts of social
problems. Children aren't cheap
so the first observation is probably
obvious. Second, fathers are getting
free rides in addition to ditching their
normal responsibilities.

Any Business- Any Budget

on my mind

Now, where does sex education
come in? When mandatory sex ed
came to schools it was to provide
factual information so that we all
would know about sex and how it
happens and what happens so that
we all would know, and if we know....
Anyway, knowing supposedly means
better decisions and all that. Does
I read a story this week about two
teenage sisters (in an all white, rural
school), who simply chose not to use
protection. They were upset and
scared at first, but got good family,
community, school support, and, for
now, boy friend support. Everyone
seems happy. Just like the Palin
family. (Not a dig at Sarah Palin. I
think she's cool)
I also read articles making fun
of abstinence (just say "no") and
commenting how ineffective that
movement has been. Extend
that criteria to the sex education
movement and the present day
statistics and where does that lead
you? In the 50s, 60s, and even 70s,
getting pregnant was a big deal.
Having an abortion was a big, big, big
deal. Having the baby and keeping it
wasn't considered. Not much support
anywhere. Not exactly kinder and
gentler, but pretty darn effective.
I'm not sure I'd like it that way now,
but it does make me wonder if we'd
be better off with "you better not"
rather than "just say no", or "here's
something you should know".

Sometimes the Rules
Just Don't Seem Fair
Q: I am 63 and my husband is 62.
I am getting my own Social Security
already, but my husband plans to
work until he's 66 and won't take
his Social Security until then. I
understand that I can't get any of
my husband's Social Security until
he starts his own. But a friend just
showed me an old column of yours
that says a divorced woman can
get some of her ex-husband's Social
Security even if he isn't collecting
benefits himself. Why do divorced
women get a break that a married
woman like myself can't get? It just
doesn't seem fair!
A: I'll admit that on the surface it
doesn't seem fair. But if you consider
the rationale for this policy, the rules
begin to make sense.


You must remember that anything
you receive as a spouse on your
husband's Social Security record is
a benefit based on dependency. In
other words, a woman can collect
Social Security benefits as a wife
on her husband's account if she is
dependent on his Social Security for
at least part of her livelihood.
Your husband is still working, so
you are probably dependent on his
earnings for part of your livelihood.
But you are obviously not dependent
on his Social Security. At least, not
yet. When he does retire and go on
Social Security, then you would be
dependent on those benefits and
that's when you can get a wife's
benefit on his record.
However, the law assumes a
divorced woman cannot depend
on her husband's earnings for her
livelihood. That's why Social Security
policymakers decided she should
be allowed to get part of his Social

Want people to know

what you're all about?

Security to live on -- even if he isn't
getting benefits himself. He must be
old enough to be eligible for Social
Security. But if he's still working and
not getting his retirement checks yet,
his ex-wife would be allowed to get
her portion of them.
And by the way, during my 35
years of working on Social Security
issues, I've met more than a few
bitter women whose mean-spirited
ex-husbands purposely didn't take
retirement benefits just to try to
keep their ex-wives from getting any
of their Social Security money. These
women were always thrilled to learn
about the rules that let divorced
women get around the shenanigans
of their stingy ex-husbands.
Q: I am a 62-year-old woman
getting Social Security disability
benefits. I heard that Social Security
beneficiaries can work and earn about
$15,000 per year and still get their
benefits. Can you be more specific?
A: Normally, I'd answer that you
could make up to $14,160 per year
and still collect all your Social
Security benefits.
But those rules apply to retired
beneficiaries. You are getting
disability benefits, and those benefits
come with an entirely different set of
rules regarding work and earnings.
Theoretically, you are getting
disability benefits in the first place
because you are unable to work. So
that would imply that if you can work,
you shouldn't be getting disability
However, the law isn't so dogmatic.
It recognizes that some people with
disabilities may want to try going
back to work. So the rules allow you
to have a "trial work period." During
that time (normally nine months
long), you are usually allowed to keep
getting disability benefits no matter
how much money you're earning.
But after those nine months, if
you're able to make a "substantial"
wage, your disability benefits can be
stopped. The law currently defines
substantial as $980 per month or
This is a much-abbreviated
explanation of an extremely
complicated set of rules regarding
how work and earnings impact
people getting disability benefits.
You should contact your local Social
Security office for more information.

Community Unites To Help Veteran

By Leigh Clifton
The house wasn't even
noticeable from the street.
All that was visible was a
huge overgrowth of trees,
bushes and vines. The
solitary mailbox by the side
of the road was the only sign
that there might be a house
and a person living there.
Emilio Candia would often
look in on his neighbor, Tom
Curley, a 65 year old Veteran
and former Navy Seal, who
lived behind those trees and
vines and bushes, in a house
that was falling down around
him. Curley had been gone
for a few months recently,
caring for his dying mother
in New Jersey and ultimately
putting her affairs in order.
Curley himself was a medical
mess; four heart attacks,
suffering from cataracts,
macular degeneration and
legally blind, in bad shape.
He had fallen several times
in his home and on the
property and Candia was
always worried that he might
seriously hurt himself, living
alone like that.
When he got back from New
Jersey, Curley told Candia
that he had heard what
he thought were raccoons,
knocking things over on the
porch and climbing on the
roof. Because his eyesight
was so bad; he could only see
vague shapes and shadows,
Curley had no idea how bad
it was. But Candia came
over and saw right away that
the problem was a lot more
serious. There were colonies
of rats, some as large as
small dogs that had not
only invaded Curley's home,
they were eating the food
in his cupboards and had
completely taken over the
house, embeddingthemselves
in the attic, spare bedroom
and the back porch.
Remembering an ad,
Candia looked up A-Plus
Restoration and found a
sympathetic ear in Sharon
Butler, a state-licensed
trapper. A-Plus owner Alex
Pemberton, whose company

traps critters for free. She
told him they just couldn't
walk away from this guy; he
needed their help. But even
Pemberton wasn't ready for
what he and his workers
found when they got to
Curley's house.
"There were gnawing marks
at the patio door, where the
rats had tried to eat their
way into the house, he said.
'There were already several
colonies in the eaves and
attic and it was really clear
that they were in the walls
of the house. It was terrible
and we knew right then that
we would do much more than
just trap a few rodents; we
knew we had to help this man
because he really needed it."
Curley's house sits in an
unincorporated part of St.
Petersburg, so no one seemed
to know whose jurisdiction
the rat problem fell under.
True to his giving nature,
Gulfport Mayor Mike Yakes
heard about Curley's plight
and got involved, makingcalls
and trying to get the help
this veteran so desperately
needed. The house needed a
serious landscaping and tree
cut-back; Pemberton thought
the rats were coming in from
under all the brush and
using the trees as access to
the roof. There were several
open areas that the rats had
chewed through to get into
the house. A Plus Restoration
went to work, sealing the
openings and trapping the
rats. Inspector/trapper Ray
Ostman and Sharon Butler
were among the first to see
the damage.
"While I was up in the attic,
I had a rat run right across
my arm," Ostman said.
"Sharon had one scurry right
by her too. There were way
too many rats up there!"
Sharon had ties to the
American Legion Post 125
and she called in some
reinforcements for help.
The Legion called in Stan
Melnick, whose company,
Serve Pest Control, services
the Legion.
"I knew right away this

members of Alpha, Bravoand Charlie Companies. The kidsvolunteered

guy really needed help,"
Melnick said, after a daytime
inspection yielded evidence
of major infestation. "God
put us here on this earth to
help others who can't help
themselves and we're proud
to be helping one of our
American Veterans."
Enter in the Boca Ciega
ROTC program; Colonel
Wayne McGlamory is a
good friend of Mayor Yakes
and when he got the call,
he didn't hesitate. As a
former Army veteran of 22
years, McGlamory knew
that Curley's resources were
probably pretty limited
and so the ROTC kids got
recruited for a clean- up
day at Curley's home last
Saturday. Coordinating with
the restoration teams, the
ROTC companies Alpha,
Bravo and Charlie sent
reps from each group and
the work at first sight was
daunting. They arrived at
Curley's house by 8 a.m.
"We came out here and it
was just awful, we couldn't
even tell that someone
lived here," Stephan Oster,
ROTC student with Charlie
Company said. "He couldn't
even get to his mail because
the yard was so full of trees
and bushes.
The city will come out and
collect the piles of brush
and tree limbs and A Plus
Restoration brought out a
huge dump truck to haul

off old furniture and cinder
blocks. Sharon Butler's
husband, who worked for
Elvis Towing, came and
towed an old Cadillac from
the side of the house. It
really was a community
effort. Butler said that the
American Legion will provide
a house cleaner and Butler
herself called Meals on
Wheels, trying to get Curley
into a food program.
"I know there are so many
more vets out there that need
help," Butler acknowledged.
"But at least for today, we
know we made an impact on
the life of one of them, and
that feels really good."
After a long, hot morning
that turned into afternoon,
Melnick the exterminator
became Melnick the BBQ
chef and cooked up hot dogs
and BBQ for the ROTC kids
and other volunteers. Curley
sat in a canvas rocker that
Stan had bought for him and
took it all in. He stood up
quietly, turned to the people
who had unselfishly given
their time and efforts to help
him and was humbled.
'Today I feel like I have
a whole, new family," he
said with tears in his eyes
and a trembling voice. "I
am incredibly grateful and
honored to call you my

With a home field advantage, North

fired up. And Mallory Allen pitched

a great game; she's really come along
as a young pitcher and we've been
cultivating her. They all just played
outstanding tonight."
The last time the Bogie girls met

North East, they got shellacked 8-0,
so this is an exceptionally sweet win
for them.
The Bogie Lady Pirates next play
Osceola Thursday night at 7 pm.

Bogie Girls Football Endures another Tough Loss

Receiver Yondrese Floyd lies on the field at Lakewood after being hit during a play. She was
taken to All Childrens as a precaution but was later released with a minor headache and some
lower back pain. She will sit out a few practices until she feels better.

The Bogie Lady Pirates took another
beating Friday night as they fell to rival
Lakewood 13-0. It was the second Pirate
loss in as many games for the girls,
but Coach Tim Henson still had some
positive things to say about his team.
'These girls really have big hearts,"
he said proudly. "They played well and
were very strong up until the fourth
quarter. That's where we got caught last
week against Gibbs. But even though
we lost to Lakewood, I saw cohesiveness
to their play this week. We're coming
together; we're getting more in sync
with one another."
But Coach Henson has already looked
ahead to Tuesday night's game against
East Lake High, who comes to Bogie
"I know if these girls come to play in
body and sound, in the state of mind as
one unit, they will be tough. With all
this talent, I can't see anybody stopping
them. What I saw on that field against
Lakewood was a team that is starting
to read each other. But the offense has
to lighten up; if they do that, things will
start to fall our way."

Tampa Bay Beaches Chamber of Commerce Provides Year-Round Support to

Wealth Buildin
By Greg Stemm
"The Tampa Bay Beaches
Chamber is delighted
to support the Wealth
Building Coalition/Pinellas
Prosperity Campaign
(WBC)," said Robin
Grabowski, president. "We
feel like this can really
benefit many of the people
who work out here on the
beach. While the Wealth
Building Coalition is a
member of the chamber,
the program is not limited
to chamber members.
Virtually anyone with an
income of less than $42,000
can benefit."
The Wealth Building
Prosperity campaign is
a collaboration of public,
private and non-profit
sectors working together
to promote awareness and
increase understanding of
the federal EITC (Earned
Income Tax Credit) program
through an ongoing and
coordinated marketing
campaign. They also strive
to expand and improve
community access to free
income tax preparation at
eleven sites throughout
the county, including at
the Tampa Bay Beaches
chamber office where tax
help is offered once a week.
"We are pleased to have
the support of the Tampa
Bay Beaches Chamber
in promoting awareness
of EITC and free tax
preparation," said Cherin
Stover, coordinator of the
Wealth Building Coalition/
Pinellas Prosperity
Campaign (WBC). "The
Chamber has spread the
word to employers who have
shared the information
with their employees. The
Chamber effort has been a
tremendous asset for our
Stover said the coalition
also emphasizes and
supports linkage to essential
asset building programs
for low and moderate

g Coalition
income households through
financial education training
utilizing FDIC MoneySmart
curriculum, promoting
homeownership education
for new home ownership
and refinancing existing
mortgages and through
additional asset building
"We have a lot of large
employers on the beach
because of the big hotel
properties," said Grabowski.
"Many of the people who
work there are eligible for
the program and we've
been very pleased with the
response we've gotten. Of
course, it's not just hotel
workers who are taking
advantage of the benefits
this program offers...we're
getting people from all
walks of life."
There are similar
organizations in dozens of
cities nationwide. Locally,
the program began in St.
Petersburg in 2002 and
was expanded countywide
in 2004. In the last tax
year (2007) the coalition
helped 3696 Pinellas county
residents file their taxes
for free and helped them
receive a total of $1,568,442
in EITC refunds.
'That's money that
goes directly into people's
pockets." said Stover.
"It's money they can use
to buy all sorts of things,
which puts that money
into circulation into the
local economy, benefiting
businesses as well. It's a
win, win for everybody."
Stover noted that because
the coalition provides a free
tax preparation service it
also saved local residents
over $535,000 in filing fees
as well. "That's additional
money people have to spend
on everything from the
necessities to saving money
to eventually buy a home."
said Stover.
In addition to the Tampa
Bay Beaches Chamber
of Commerce, the WBC

is supported by JWB
Children's Services Council,
the United Way of Tampa
Bay, Bank of America,
Wachovia Foundation,
Internal Revenue Service,
FDIC, Federal Reserve
Bank, WorkNet Pinellas,
other chambers of
commerce, local employers,
local governments, not-for-
profit organizations and
"Employers in particular
can become real heroes to
their employees by helping
to educate them on the
benefits of the EITC," said
Stover. "In essence, by
enlightening them on how
to capitalize on the returns,
employers are giving their
employees a raise without
any additional money of
their own coming out of
their pocket."
Stover said that more
than 60 percent of people
working in Pinellas County
arc eligible for the EITC,
yet only about 25 percent
take advantage of it. That's
federal money that should
be pumped into the local
economy that is staying in
Washington simply because
people are unaware of how
to claim it. She noted that
almost half of the 25 percent
who do claim the EITC are
paying to have their taxes
done when they could put
that money back into
their pocket by utilizing
the free tax preparation
service that the coalition
offers. She says that all of

iooin t. .raDOwSKI, presioeni
of the Tampa Bay Beaches
Chamber of Commerce said thai
she was very pleased with the
response they have received tc
their participation in the Wealth
Building Coalition.
the coalition's tax preparers
are IRS certified.
Stover also noted that you
can talk to your employer
and get an advanced EITC
which puts a little more
money into your pocket with
every paycheck rather than
receiving a lump sum when
you file.
"We like to say 'Earn
It. Keep It. Grow It.' It's
great to be part of such a
successful program that
is helping so many people
and helps bring more
financial resources into our
community," said Stover.
'This was our first
year participating in the
program," said Grabowski.
As you know we cover a
large area...from Pass-a-
Grille all the way to Sand
Key. We hope that we
will be able to expand the
program up the beach next
