Tampa Connection, a Caribbean dance band, celebrates their First
Place finish at the 18th Annual Tampa Bay Caribbean Carnival last
weekend in Vinoy Park. The event featured world- renowned Jamaican
artist Shaggy, a dance hall/reggae singer, as well as SOCA queen
Alison Hinds, a Steel Drum Band competition and fabulous Caribbean
food. Tampa Connection was one of several of the costumed parade
of bands that danced and sang for the multi-ethnic crowd, their feather
-plumed headdresses and flamboyant costumes glittering in the
afternoon sun. The carnival also featured all manner of brightly colored
clothing, jewelry and art from the many islands of the Caribbean.
Although it was a scorching 98 degrees, the crowd made it a non-stop
dance party well into the evening.

Cameras at Traffic Lights?
No one's saying the city wants to install cameras at traffic
lights, but city manager Jim O'Reilly did ask council to allow
Police Chief Robert Vincent time to speak about these cameras
at the next council meeting. Mayor Mike Yakes agreed and
residents can learn more about these cameras at the next city
council meeting, scheduled for July

New RV Rules
for Gulfport
RV owners will have to
navigate new rules about
recreational vehicles.
Ordinance 2010-08 amends
Chapter 21 of the city's code
of ordinances. Recreational
vehicles must have a permit
if someone will reside in the
vehicle. People now may stay
in an RV on private property
for no more than five days up
to two times a year.
To have someone stay in a
recreational vehicle on private
property in Gulfport, they
must apply for a free permit.
The city opted not to require
a permit for unoccupied
recreational vehicles.
Changes include a limit of
one recreational vehicle per
land parcel (generally one per
address). Furthermore, the city
exempted Class B recreational
If a landowner does not have
enough property to park the
recreational vehicle as far back
from right of ways as city law
dictates, he may store the RV

Sam Henderson Meets With Group at Town Hall
By Cathy Salustri
GULFPORT- Councilman Sam
Henderson met with a four
of his constituents Monday
night at the 49th Street
Neighborhood Center. The
meeting, one of Councilman
Henderson's regularly
scheduled town hall meetings,
allowed residents a forum
to express concerns or ask
questions about their ward or
the city.
See Story, page 2

Henderson, from front page
Resident Phil Reed said that he had
attended an Economic Development
Advisory Council (EDAC) meeting
and that EDAC seemed to have no
contact with So49, the 49th Street
South business association.
"I think they're working towards a
goal," Mr. Reed said, but added that
the group seemed to lack focus or even
an awareness that So49 existed.
Mr. Reed and his wife, Jeri, also told
Councilman Henderson that they
felt the misconception that the 49th
Street area had inordinate crime
needed correction. The Reeds, who
run a nursing school on 49th Street,
reported that on the whole they felt
safe in the district.
"I don't have the perception that
there's a lot of crime here," Mr. Reed

said, referencing a comment made at
the EDAC meeting. Mr. Reed said
that the EDAC said they didn't want
to make any recommendations until
they "could clean up 49th Street."
No representatives from EDAC
attended the town hall meeting to
address these claims.
Councilman Henderson has regularly
scheduled town hall meetings; check

Bay Scallop Season
to Open Early
Gov. Charlie Crist has announced
that the recreational harvest season
for bay scallops in Florida will open
12 days earlier than usual this year.
The governor is taking this action
to help relieve possible economic
hardships on Florida fishing
communities that may occur due to
the BP Deepwater Horizon oil spill in
the Gulf of Mexico.
"Several people and businesses
in Northwest Florida and Big
Bend coastal regions asked us to
please open the popular bay scallop
season early this year," Gov. Crist
said. "These folks depend upon the
influx of visitors that come to their
communities to scallop each summer,
and they need a boost right now to
help them recover from the mistaken
perception that fishing throughout
Florida has been affected by the oil
spill, which is not the case."

ItStoroscoDe Guide

GEMINI (May 21-June 21).
Whatever your age maybe, your mind
is young and filled with questions.
You will have an ever-increasing
need to explore. However, your
travel budget is for now too limited
to include the kind of adventure your
mind is set on. Here's one solution:
the library. In the world of books,
everything is possible.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). You
do not even realize how much you've
grown. The way you present yourself,
how you look and what you say, the
words you use and the way you listen
and relate to others -- it all took work.
You've made some good choices, and
that's why your way will be made
easier. Congratulations. You have
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You are a
vessel for ideas, some of which do not
even originate from you. Sometimes
it's best to let your thoughts pass
through your mind without focusing
on them at all. You can do the same
with your heart -- let the feelings
move through without identifying
with them. You'll experience the
infinite nature of your soul.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You
communicate so well that it's easy
to become impatient with those
who are vague and imprecise. Try
to understand. Talking things out
can be difficult for some people, and
it takes time. Avoid interrupting. If
you can listen without interjecting,
you'll find compassion and will earn
a special place in a friend's heart.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). It's
not news to you that throwing the
perfect party could change world
history. In fact, that's what you're
subconsciously trying to do every
time you make the effort. Such
efforts will go exceptionally well this
week. In fact, as you get your plans
together, you will have the strong
sense that you are divinely guided.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). When
you like people, you are inclined to
like what they like, go where they
go and say what they say. Allowing
yourself to be influenced in this way
can be beneficial, as long as you
genuinely admire and believe in
the edicts of the group. You won't
lose yourself completely -- you're too
independent for that.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21).
Things won't go according to plan,
which makes this one of the most
exciting and interesting weeks of
the year. You'll get a chance to flex
your strength. Also, there is a great
deal of humor to be minded in the
interactions between you and your
loved ones. Show your love and
affection wherever possible.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19).
In some respect, you'll be a repeat
offender to yourself, making the
kind of mistake you said you didn't
want to make again. However,
maybe it wasn't a mistake, after
all. Maybe the behavior serves an
important purpose. Give this some
consideration as you decide how to
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18).
Playing it cool is appropriate in some
of the situations you are involved in
this week. However, there will also be
instances where being too restrained
is a bad idea. People want to know
that you are excited about working
with or being in a relationship with
them. Enthusiasm is an attractive
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The
person who is on your side doesn't
always agree with you. This week
there is someone who is absolutely
on your team, but it doesn't feel that
way. You'll be challenged to come up
with an argument for your way of
doing things. Having to define and
clarify your methods will make you
more powerful.


the Gabr. vr husa ic 98

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You'll
be making a decision about whom
to add to your life for business or
pleasure. Though it's wise to ask for
facts and references, basing your
decisions on these things alone is
not advised. Pay more attention to
your feelings. You could later learn
that the facts aren't true, but your
feelings will not lie to you.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You
were taught by the authoritative
influences that shaped your young
mind that in order to survive, you
often have to leave behind your
wacky dreams and desires. It's not
the truth. And you'll get a sign this
week that you will survive best by
pursuing your desire with every
resource you have.
This Week's Birthdays: You have
a gift that you have yet to explore.
This year, something deep inside you
will persuade you to take a risk and
develop yourself in a new direction.
In July, you will make connections
that nurture your talent. August
is terrific for your confidence, and
your loved ones will treat you better,
too. You'll be toasted in September.
An increase in funds in November
allows you to finally do something
you've been saving up for. Family
reunions happen in December.

Keep Pinellas Beautiful
Needs Volunteers
Although there is no imminent
threat of oil from the Deepwater
Horizon spill making landfall in
Pinellas County, volunteers are

Special Beach Cleanup, visit www.
pinvol.org. Those who register will
be notified by e-mail if oil landfall is
expected within 48 hours. Removing
litter ahead of time would speed oil
cleanup by reducing the amount of
potentially contaminated material,
remediation time, cost, and human
exposure to harmful materials. Only
trained contractors, not volunteers,
would be utilized to clean up oil
impacted shorelines or any activities
involving direct contact with oil.
Keep Pinellas Beautiful (local anti-
litter organization) is coordinating
the countywide event in cooperation
with the U.S. Coast Guard and local
beach managers. According to Bill
Sanders, executive director of Keep
Pinellas Beautiful, "Our goal is to
clean up every inch of the Pinellas
County coastline, including the
outer islands." Each area will have
a designated site captain to organize
the volunteers and ensure that no
harm comes to nesting birds or

litter and safeguarding local beaches
is encouraged to register, including

Gulfport Mayor Mike Receives

Civic Leadership Award

At the June 1 city council meeting, Vice-Mayor Michele King told the council that she
had an announcement: The Suncoast League of Cities awarded Mayor Mike Yakes with its
Civic Leadership Award.
"This is probably the most prestigious award that the League gives," Vice-Mayor King told
the council and those present in the audience. "This is something that everybody in our
city should be proud of."
"I did not earn that alone; there were a lot of people behind me," Mayor Yakes said as he
accepted the award and posed for photos.

CHave you got a

9 city government?
Email your request to News@theGabber.com
By Cathy Salustri
City of Gulfport
Q: Does Gulfport have an ordinance that prohibits panhandling on its
streets and corners and rights of ways? submitted by Margarete Tober
via Facebook

A: Gulfport Police Chief Rob Vincent says that the city ordinance
prohibiting loitering also covers panhandling.
"One of the elements of loitering is: 'accosts, approaches, or solicits from
other persons in any public place or in any place open to the public for the
purpose of begging, soliciting alms, or soliciting for immoral purposes',"
Chief Vincent explained.
The courts support this ordinance; they recently convicted a man who
police arrested after he repeatedly approached people in the area of
Gulfport Boulevard and 49th Street and asked for money. Although police
warned him to stop and gave him a ticket, he continued to beg, getting
himself a trip to jail, Vincent said.
Gulfport police officers prefer not take that route, though, Chief Vincent said.
"Our officers are usually able to resolve problems with warnings and
appropriate social service referrals," the Chief explained.

So methatl on my mind
a By Bill Northrop B_Northrop@theGabber.com

Is Panhandling
the Problem?
Is the City of St. Petersburg's
ordinance against panhandling
also restrictive of free speech and
a violation of the First Amendment?
It is, I say, and thereby side with
that leader of liberalism, the St. Pete
Times, which is taking the City to
court over the issue.
That a conservative would support
a liberal might seem strange except
that real conservatives are real
liberals. They espouse more freedom
and that means less government
intrusion. The bigger the government,
the smaller and less powerful the
individual. The Bill of Rights is about
individual freedoms and freedom
from government. Government is the
This local fight is not about
big government, but it is about
individuals. Some argue that the
St. Pete Times is not interested in free
speech, but interested in the money
that comes from the 7,000 copies sold
on the street corners every Sunday
(some are sold by the homeless). They
might be interested in the money, but
more likely in the numbers of papers
sold which boosts its circulation and
hopefully, for them, their advertising.
Newspapers cost money to print (the
paper alone might be worth a buck)
and it costs money to distribute and
sell. So, money's not the issue.
The issue is that citizens now don't
have the right to distribute ideas on
the streets, paid for or otherwise.
You can't distribute a flier under the
ordinance, or solicit money for any
purpose or cause on public streets.
The Times is now being picketed.
Those citizens, I think, have the right
to do that. They also have the right
to have signs, and to speak, and, of
course, distribute (or sell) literature
about the issue. Is this in violation of
the ordinance?
The problem is that the City has
equated selling goods and distributing
information with panhandling.
And, I believe, there is a significant
difference between panhandling and

raising money for a charity. Of course,
one could argue that panhandling is
collecting for charity, just a tad more
selfish. The legal argument is made
that any exemption will invalidate
the entire ordinance. I'm not sure
about that, but the arguments will
undoubtedly center around that
Of course, the real problem is not
just panhandling. Panhandling is
just an activity that's been identified
with the homeless. The problem is
curtailing the intrusive, often rude,
often crude and disgusting behavior
of the homeless. They do, in fact,
urinate and defecate on the streets.
They do, in fact, trash areas they
attempt to live in. Some harass other
citizens. It is quite all right to curtail
and punish such behavior as that, and
it is within the City's purview to keep
its streets and sidewalks clean and
safe for pedestrians and motorists.
However, I question whether
government can control what people
say. Asking for money, for whatever
cause, is speech. What about citizens
who tell the panhandlers to "bug
off' or even curse at them, or hand
a religious pamphlet to them? Or,
to reverse the situation, what about
people who get hired to distribute or
sell on the street?
It maybe unsafe to step into the street,
or even to stand on the island dividers
to sell or solicit or distribute, but can
selling, soliciting, or distributing be
prohibited everywhere? I'm all for
curtailing the intrusive activities
of the so-called homeless. Some are
lazy, some are crazy, some are addicts
scamming the system, and some
are simply professional scammers.
That St. Pete is known as a "mean"
city doesn't bother me a bit. I'm all
for helping individuals, but not for
creating welfare for a class of people.
The ordinance may slow-down
panhandling, but it will not solve
the overall problems with the
panhandlers. However, realistically,
it will curtail legal and proper
activities that are good for the

The Mann family, who came to Gulfport
from Manatee in the 1910s, were always
active in the fishing industry, and built
a large fishing fleet by 1920. When last
week's picture was taken, about 1940,
the business was shipping as much as
140,000 pounds of mullet a month out of
their headquarters at Clam Bayou, and
even after the war were shipping some
million pounds a year.

Enjoy Summer Fun
with a Child!
Gulf Coast Community Care needs
volunteers age 30 and older for its
mentoring program. Many of the
children are in foster care or live
with a single parent who is going to
school and working. Volunteers give
the gift of time to one child and are
provided social activities and receive
support by agency staff.
No experience is necessary. There
are no costs. Volunteers spend a few
hours a month in simple activities
such as reading, fishing, baking,
teaching a craft or visiting a park
with a child. There are children
throughout Pinellas County waiting
for mentors!
To learn how you can make a lasting
difference in the life of a child, call
Beverly at 727-479-1841 or Fanya at
727-479-1831 or visit www.gcjfs.org.

Good Reasons to
Adopt an Older Cat
Friends of Strays has a special offer
for the months of May and June for
all adoptions of older cats. Anyone
adopting a cat that is over three
years old will receive a gift basket
with everything needed to take kitty
to their new forever home. All cats
have been neutered or spayed and
have been vaccinated.
There are many good reasons to
consider adopting an older cat,
1. Older cats are already trained to
use a litter box.
2. Cats are already past the
rambunctious stage and are more
peaceful and calm than young
3. Older cats are very grateful
for a home and usually make the
transition easily.
4. Finally, if you are older, having
an older cat makes just makes an
excellent choice.
Friends of Strays has several
beautiful, older cats that have been
at the shelter for some time. If you
can open your home to one of them
please come meet them! The shelter
is located at 2911 47 Avenue N. in
St. Petersburg. For more information

Gulfport to the Rescue
Dear Editor: As a member of the Get
Rescued...In Gulfport team, I find it
impossible not to thank the generous
citizens of Gulfport for their act of
kindness last Saturday evening. Last
week I received two detailed emails
concerning a dog hoarding and puppy
mill raid out of Polk County. This raid
encompassed over 250 starving and
sick dogs. Saturday morning I wrote
on Facebook how disgusted I was of
hearing, over and over again, about
these animal abuse situations. To
make matters worse, we discovered
that due to budget cuts, Polk County
Animal Control had dog food to feed
for only one more day. This meant
that by Monday, many dogs that
had been surrendered would have
been destroyed to make room for the
confiscated dogs.
By 7 p.m. Saturday evening, several
friends of mine and the animals
had put together a fundraiser
collecting dollars to purchase dog
food. Although all the major pet
stores were approached, none of
them were willing to give even one
bag of food. Discouraged volunteers
wondered what to do next Gulfport
- home of one of the most successful
and respected animal adoption and
fundraising events in Florida Get
Rescued...In Gulfport.

Volunteers walked up and down
Beach Blvd., visited several local
restaurants asking anyone who
would listen for help, just one dollar.
Well, Gulfport, you dug deep into
your pockets, even children donated
their dollar bills and by the end of
the night, $1,000 was raised. Sunday
morning our $1,000 turned into 2,000
- two thousand pounds of dog food!
We were on our way to Polk County.
I had the privilege of seeing the joy
and the tears these county employees
expressed when we arrived and
We told them the story about our
little piece of heaven and the angels
that live here. As I was given the
opportunity to view two of the
confiscated dogs, my thoughts were of
all of you. At one point I had wished
all of you cold have looked into their
eyes knowing the difference you are
making in their lives. I also knew
that most of us wouldn't enjoy looking
at dogs where you were able to count
every bone in their body. They even
managed to wag their tails to say
thank you and I will leave you with
this my friends those that you will
never meet, not they you, who have
been abused their entire lives, say
thank you, angels of Gulfport, for
speaking out for the animals.

2010 National Night Out
National Night Out is August 3. Gulfport Crime Awareness and Prevention
has stepped up to the plate for an event that evening. Our preliminary plan is
to gather at the Neighborhood Center for a kick off of the "Give Neighborhood
Crime and Drugs a Going-Away Party".
The kick off will be a walk to show a united effort of both municipalities
(Gulfport and St. Petersburg) to include residents and businesses from both
sides of 49th Street. The walk will start on 49th Street S. and 16th Avenue (in
front of the Neighborhood Center) and go south to the Tangerine Greenway
(Tangerine Avenue/18th Avenue S.). The Tangerine Greenway will then be
the site for the "Going Away Party". The intent is for community building,
education and a united effort.

Host Families Needed
for Exchange Students
Pacific Intercultural Exchange (PIE)
is a non-profit organization looking
for caring families to host high
school students from many countries
around the world. The students are
between 15 17 years of age and will
attend school for an academic year or
semester at your local high school.
There is no such thing as a typical
host family. They accept single
parents, retiredcouples, families with
small children, teens or no children at
all! You can have a great experience
hosting an International teen. The
students are prescreened, speak
English and are looking forward to
learning about our culture while
teaching Americans about theirs.
Students will have medical insurance
and their own spending money to
cover clothing, school expenses,
entertainment, etc. Host families
should provide not only a loving home
and food for their daily meals, but
also a quiet place to be able to study
and bedroom to rest. Although host
families are not paid, one is eligible
to claim a charitable tax deduction of
$50 per month for every month the
student is in the home.

Decisions, Decisions,
This week, let's take a look at
how legal transfers of control and
decision-making work.
This is a legal process in which the
court places an individual or agency
in control of someone else's affairs.
Since establishing a guardianship
requires action by the Court system,
it can be expensive and cumbersome.
In addition, guardianship reduces
an individual's legal rights to those
of a minor.
This is a type of guardianship that
applies only to a person's property
and not his or her personal matters.
As such, its scope is less restrictive,
and the individual involved retains
many of his or her legal rights.
Durable Power of Attorney
By establishing a power of attorney,
you authorize someone else to act
in your behalf. You can give very
limited powers, such as authorizing
someone to sell property for you, or
very broad powers, such as paying

bills, making investment decisions,
or making all decisions for you.
A durable power of attorney remains
in force even if the person who
establishes it becomes incompetent.
While a power of attorney is generally
established to ensure that your
affairs will be handled for you, it
must be durable to be effective in the
event of your incapacity. Any power
of attorney, including a durable one,
becomes null and void when either
the person granting it or the person
to whom it is granted dies.
You should be sure to specify exactly
what functions are to be covered
by the durable power of attorney.
For example, medical decisions,
investment choices and property care
can be named specifically.
Of course, a durable power of
attorney should be given only to
someone you trust implicitly to act
in your best interest. You should
consult an attorney for the specific
requirement of a durable power of

Lynda Shehan and Gulfport Feed Shelter Dogs

Lynda Shehan cuddles Lucy, her Chihuahua. Lucy passed away almost
four years ago. Lynda adopts older dogs that most cast aside. "The
seem to know that you're helping them, and they always seem to
appreciate the attention," Lynda says. "They just know."

By Leigh Clifton
Gulfport resident Lynda
Shehanis known around town
for her rescue of mistreated
and abandoned animals.
Each year her charity
event Get Rescued fills the
boulevard with hopeful eyes
and wagging tails that pull
at your heartstrings and
make you wish for a bigger
back yard. Lynda has been in
the rescue business for over
25 years and is affiliated
with a staggering 60
charities involving animals
and rescue. So it should come
as no surprise that when
the recent news about two
Polk County rescue missions
suddenly overwhelmed the
Polk Animal Control, Lynda
didn't blink, she didn't pass
GO. She blogged on her
"I was sitting there writing
my daily observation on
my Facebook page and I
made a comment about how
absolutely awful it must be
for those poor dogs. Animal
Control has seized dogs from
a puppy mill as well as a
hoarding situation. Over 270
dogs were brought into their
shelter, in addition to the

many they already had from
strays and drop-offs. The
total was close to 800; they
were running out of food and
would be forced to euthanise
some of the drop-off dogs just
to make room."
Someone made a comment
to her online query; why not
try and raise some money
for the food those starving
dogs so desperately needed
and deliver it to Polk County
themselves. The course was
set and she was on the phone
in a heartbeat, calling her
Bill DeBusk is a very good
friend of Lynda's; he's also
the manager of Pet Angel, a
pet loss memorial service. Bill
is compassionate by nature
and he was also moved to do
something for these dogs that
nobody wanted. His company
donated $100. His partner
Jim Galardy works at Pinch-
a-Penny pool services; they
donated $500 and with that,
Lynda was on a roll.
Lynda is a mobilizer; give
her a cause that involves dogs
or animals in general and she
turns into a whirlwind. The
telephone is her office; she is
the one who knows someone
who knows someone else that

can help. She thought at first
to call the local pet stores.
She thought the bigger
chains like PetSmart would
surely want to help.
"They declined," she says
with a bit of irony in her
voice. "Petco gave us some
samples, but samples won't
feed 800 animals, no matter
how far you stretch them."
Of course, after all those big
corporate pet stores refused
to help, local business owner
Mary O'Malley at Reef Dog
stepped up to the plate and
donated 200 pounds of dog
food. She and Lynda are close
Lynda put the word out;
Janice from Domain set ajar
out and collected over $140.
Lynda and her friends walked
up and down the boulevard,
asking for donations from
people on the street.
"We decided then and there
to just go out on the street
and collect some money for
these dogs so we could buy
them food," Lynda said.
Lynda got up at the launch
party for Gulfport Magazine
and pleaded on the mic for
people to open their hearts
and their pocketbooks for the
"We raised over $1000 that
night alone, just walking
the boulevard, stopping at
the bars and asking at the
Casino. It was incredible
to see when two little boys
walked up, each with a dollar
in their hands. I mean, can
you imagine what a dollar
means to a child? And to
have them give it to a cause?
I said, "you gotta be kidding
me," she said laughing.
"It was so awesome! The
people of Gulfport are the
real heroes in this one; they
just stepped up and helped
as a community. They
showed such compassion and
kindness. I am so grateful to
everyone who donated."
Meanwhile, Bill and Jim
had persuaded Petfood
Warehouse to give them a
discount on giant bags of dog
food. They were able to buy
2000 pounds of dog food for
about $1000. Whatever other
donationscamein afterwards,

Petfood Warehouse agreed to
match the money with food.
It was a win-win.
Next job was to get it to Polk
County. Bill and Jim have a
large RV. With the help of
several friends, including
Elaine Barclay and Mary
O'Malley, the team loaded
that puppy up.
"You should have seen it,'
Lynda laughs. "All you could
see was bags and bags of dog
Lynda's soft spot is older
dogs and she has several.
She said she likes to adopt
the older ones; they're the
ones that are mostly drop-
offs, meaning that the family
person knows they won't be
back. In all probability, older
dogs are put to sleep because
most deem them unadoptable.
But Lynda doesn't see them
that way. That's how she
found her Lucy, a half-
blind little Chihuahua she
adopted. Lucy was 10 years
old; Lynda had her almost
four more years. She still
keeps pictures of her on her
"I like to just scroll through
the pictures sometimes," she
says wistfully. "It makes it
almost seem like she's still
She looks away for a moment
and it is here that you realize
what an extraordinary
woman she is. She uses her
vast knowledge and resources
to help pair dogs with people,
charities with causes. Hers
is a kind and compassionate
soul that can still weep for an
old, blind, much loved dog.
She doesn't take much credit;
she graciously spreads the
love around.
"I feel so blessed that I
have the contacts so that
when people ask me, I can
make things happen," she
says. "I'm not a hero; I'm just
someone who can help make
things happen."
But to some hungry,
neglected and abused puppy
dogs in Polk County, she's an

The Dogs of
Clam Bayou
SC ome down to Clam Bayou,"
Kayak Kurt said, and
I groaned. What now?
A protest against the restoration?
A protest favoring the restoration? A
councilperson kayaking at low tide?
Did the police find a body under the
mud? With my morning coffee as of
yet unfinished, I lacked the strength
for another Clam Bayou story.
As Kurt spoke, I reconsidered.
Animal Services was en route to
collect a wild dog trapped in a
humane cage. Trapping a wild dog's
good, right?
When I arrived at the Bayou, the
Animal Services officer explained the
difference between wild (like wolves)

and feral (like these dogs.) The dogs
of Clam Bayou started their lives as
cuddly little fluffballs in somebody's
home, but once they got too large
or too much to handle, their owners
found them guilty of "not cute enough
anymore" and left the pups to fend for
themselves, either abandoning them
at Clam Bayou or abandoning them,
period. Somehow, these not-cute-
enough almost-grown dogs found
each other and banded together and
formed a pack to survive.
While the city's enjoyed its share of
debate about Clam Bayou's mud, no
one's found Alpo in the tidal flats yet,
so the pack must hunt for food. The
dogs of Clam Bayou subsist on marsh
hare, baby birds, and other wildlife.
People can't approach these dogs,
and the dogs of Clam Bayou will
defend the pack, which rumor now
says includes puppies, if they feel
As I write this, Calypso is curled
up on the chair next to me, her cold
leathery nose huffing dachshund
breath on my knee. She just turned
three, and on her birthday she had a
steak and a bone and some ice cream.
Her biggest worry is conning me out
of part of my dinner.
Those dogs in Clam Bayou? They
want the same things as Calypso: a
warm bed, protection from predators,
and some of whatever the rest of their
pack is eating. The difference that
Calypso sleeps on a Tempurpedic
mattress dressed in 600-thread count
sheets and they sleep in a den of dead
leaves and sandspurs in a park that
the city closes early because of drug
deals and "romantic" interludes.
Calypso's best friend is Scuppers,
a Maine Coon who dwarfs her with
his fur. When Calypso and I go for a
walk, Scuppers waits in the window
and cries for her. When he hears my
key in the lock, he runs to the door
and brushes up against Calypso,
which, as we all know, is cat for "you
belong to me."
When people found the trapped dog
Monday morning, another feral dog
outside the cage wouldn't leave her
side. Even after Animal Services got

the trapped dog in the van, this dog
Calypso eats fresh meat every
morning; the dogs of Clam Bayou
subsist on whatever they can catch
without getting caught themselves.
Calypso is protected by humans
and she charms those she meets by
fluttering her tiny eyelashes, cocking
her ridiculously furry ears, and
rolling over on her back and pawing
at the air. The world, to Calypso, is
just one great big adventure.
The dogs of Clam Bayou rely on
each other. The rest of the world has
not treated them well. The people
who enforce laws to protect Calypso
and us humans will also be the ones
to kill the dogs of Clam Bayou if they
trap them. The dogs of Clam Bayou
view the world as a mean, scary, and
dangerous place.
I can imagine what happened:
the female, hungry, possibly from
nursing, wandered into the trap for
the food and got caught. Her pack
mate probably tried to find a way to
tunnel under the cage or get her out,
and when he could not, he waited by
her side, even as the sun rose and
every instinct he had told him to hide
himself. Even as humans showed
up, he waited. Only when they
approached did he retreat and watch
from a distance as the officer dragged
his packmate to the back of the van.
This captured dog will never roll
over on her back to paw at the air to
impress a human with her powers
of cute. She will not lick a face, not
without a lot of patience and love.
With so many strays waiting for
homes, no agency has space or staff to
work with these "unadoptable" dogs.
Their loyalty to one another means
nothing; that humans created this
situation is insignificant. These dogs
will die five days after they wander
into a trap needing food.
I don't advocate allowing the dogs
of Clam Bayou to remain in the
park, but every time I close my
eyes, I picture that dog, waiting by
his trapped companion. I see him
staring at the Animal Services van
as I speak with the officer. And I may
have imagined it, but somewhere in
his dark, sad eyes, I saw a little bit of
Calypso in there.

prayer for (3) days, promise publication and
favor will b e granted. Never known to faila.
In Grateful thanks. I will never stop trusting in
God and his power. L.M.C.
