City Council Approves
Three New Districts
GULFPORT- It's official: people who want to live above
their businesses on 49th Street may now do so, and peo-
ple who want to run certain small businesses out of their
home on Tangerine may also do so. Gulfport city council
voted Tuesday night to approve three new overlay districts
that change the zoning of certain areas of the city to allow
homes and businesses to co-exist.
The three districts fall within the boundaries of the Tan-
gerine neighborhood. Called overlay districts, these

Tax Decisions for
St. Pete Beach
By Cathy Salustri

After the final budget meeting
last week and Tuesday night's
commission, the St. Pete Beach
city commission made the following
decisions about city spending for
the upcoming fiscal year.
Lobbyist Budget Cut 50%
After much debate, city
commissioner will only fund the
lobbyist through next March 2010.
The budget called for cutting
$32,500 from the lobbyist firm's
paycheck, a 50% cut from the
$65,000 budget for the Alcalde and
Faye, the lobbyist firm for the city.
Commissioner Jim Parent told the
commission that the lobbyist firm,
when questioned, admitted that
"they would be hesitant to say they
should be credited with getting the
grants." He added that he also had
concerns about the reduction or
elimination of earmarked funds.
"Basically the Republicans came
out and said there's not going to be
any earmarks in the next year,"
See Beach Budget, page 12

Red Light Cameras
Get the Green
GULFPORT- Drivers who gun
their engines to race through a
barely-red light will soon find them-
selves getting a ticket in the mail.
Gulfport city council gave Gulfport
Police Chief Robert Vincent the go-
ahead to install red light cameras
throughout the city.
A traffic enforcement officer will
review the images, Chief Vincent
assured council, and any intersec-
tion with a red light camera will
have a sign notifying drivers.
City council approved the reso-
lution unanimously; the city will
have a second reading at the next
council meeting.

New Districts,
from front page
districts exist over the city's existing
districts and allow for special zoning.
The three overlay districts will allow
for mixed use. This adds in residen-
tial uses into the commercial district
along 49th street and small, home-
based business in other areas.
The city approved this unanimous-
ly. Upon approval, Chamber of Com-
merce president Lori Rosso gave a

victory salute. For specific zoning
maps and new rules, please contact
the city's Community Development
department at 893-1000.

Florida Hospital
Patient Protection
Act Passes After
Tough Questions

GULFPORT- After some debate over
the validity of the research contained
in the resolution, Gulfport city coun-
cil voted to approve a resolution that
endorses lower nurse-to-patient ra-
tios. Councilmember David Hastings
expressed some discomfort at signing
the city's name to a resolution that
quoted research no one on council
had verified.
"As a city council we're agreeing
to all of these 'whereas-es' without
knowing if they are fact," Councilman
Hastings said. When city attorney
Caitlin Sirico (standing in for regu-
lar attorney Andrew Salzman) said
the city could eliminate the sources
quoted, Hastings said that eliminat-
ing the sources of the research would
make the city sound as though "we
know this to be true," even though
the city hadn't verified those facts.


Most Insurance Plans

Eyemed, Medicaid,
United Healthcare,

Resident Bob Newcomb also ex-
pressed discomfort at the city's pas-
sage of the ordinance, calling it a "la-
bor management situation."
"I don't think it's the place of the
city to get involved with it," New-
comb said.
"If this is going to the legislature and
not the head of the hospital, it's not a
labor issue," Michele King said.
The city opted to remove any alleged
facts that lacked research citations;
council approved the resolution.

In last week's cover story on the
Lincoln Cemetery in Gulfport,
Royal Palms was listed as
helping Lincoln Cemetery with
maintaining the grounds. It was,
in fact, Supervisor Tom Chicano,
at Woodlawn Cemetery across
the street who helps maintain the
back six acres, trimming trees and
cutting the grass, according to Ben
Marshall, General Manager for
Woodlawn Cemetery. We regret
the error. The Lincoln Cemetery
is located in Gulfport, not
St. Petersburg. The Joshua Lodge
105 had volunteered to help with
grounds keeping before the story
ran as well as after.

Gulfport City Insurance Changes
GULFPORT- The city will still pay 100% of employee insurance through Blue
Cross Blue Shield of Florida. Employees will receive coverage through the Blue
Options 1553 plan, although they may opt to purchase one of two other plans
at their own expense. City employees may purchase coverage for their depen-
dants through the city; this includes spouses, dependant children, and domestic
Councilmembers expressed regret that the city could not pay for dependant
insurance, which will start at over $500 per month.
"It's the lessor of two evils," Sam Henderson said of the plans, adding employ-
ees who need to insure dependants would most feel the impact of the insurance
plans. He asked the city manager if, should the city receive a windfall or grant
during the year, the city could increase its coverage. City manager Jim O'Reilly
indicated that council should not expect that to happen.
Councilman David Hastings and councilwoman Michele King both said the
plan was cheaper than what they carried independent of the city.
"Insurance is ridiculous; the whole system to me is ridiculous," Councilman
Hastings said, adding that he and his wife pay $845 per month for health in-
Councilwoman King agreed, saying she and her husband paid $875 every
month "and I guarantee you it's not half the policy that this is."
Additionally, city employees receive long-term disability to its employees and
accidental death and dismemberment at no cost to the insured.
"This is one of those opportunities where I'd like to see us spend some money
and never have to use it," Councilman Sam Henderson said of the life and dis-
memberment policy.
Mayor Mike Yakes thanked the employees and spoke about his insurance
hopes for the future.
"Thank you very much," Mayor Yakes said "We appreciate all you give us and
will give it back...when we can."

Beach Budget,
from front page
he said "and I think the democrats
have limited it-"
Commissioner Al Halpern
interjected, N.nim y Pelosi has done
the same."
City Manager Mike Bonfield
reassured the commission, telling
them, "We satin BillYoung's office and
he said there will be appropriations."
Mayor Mike Finnerty voiced
support for the lobbyists, asking the
commission, "We've never had this
kind of money before so where do you
think the money was coming from?
We've gotten over a million dollars in
this last month, you think they didn't
have anything to do with it? I can't
believe you would think that."
"Look, we've got a serious problem
here- we're $13 million in debt on the
pensions and our reserves are half of
what they should be; we have got to
look at every single penny and that's
why I'm bringing this up. The other
thing that bothers me is I looked
them up on the Internet and these
guys have 300 clients," Commissioner
Marvin Shavlan said.
*Although it was not listed on the
budget, the commission considered
the idea of a marina behind the
city's Recreation Center. At the first
workshop the city discussed a $10,000
study, but Commissioner Shavlan
suggested calling the city of Gulfport
and talking about its successes with
its marina.
"Before we spend that money, why
don't we do a pro forma? Just do some
best case and worse case scenarios
guessing how many slips we have and
everything. Let's go talk to Gulfport...
Let's do some numbers and see well,

if we have 200 slips, this is how much
money we can make. And if it doesn't
make sense then why spend the
money. I think that ought to be the
first step," he said.
Commissioner Bev Garnett said
that although citizens voted against
the marina several years ago, times
had changed.
"When it was voted down... it was a
different economic climate. $10,000 is
not going to make or break this city,"
she said.

No Cuts for Employee
Health Insurance
Commissioner Marvin Shavlan
benefits for city employees.
"The insurance policy here is very
generous," he said, explaining that his
company offered two health insurance
plans, an entry-level plan with fewer
benefits and a more comprehensive
plan that employees could pay extra
to join.
Shavlan suggested the city make
its base plan a catastrophic plan
and people could upgrade to a more
comprehensive plan.
Commissioner Jim Parent stressed
that the city need to stay competitive
to attract and retain quality
"We're talking about one little bitty
part of this thing that could save a lot
of money. We could cut pay by 50%,
that'd save a lot of money," he said.
In response, Commissioner Shavlan
said, "We can't go on with this
$13million deficit, it's just ridiculous."
He said that he had spoken with a
commissioner in another city who
said their cty was making similar
cuts, but when Commissioner Parent
pressed him for details, Shavlan

Carolyn Webber, D.O

I Serving GulfportAreafor 12 Years


admitted that no such cuts had taken
place yet.
SI.,. I,. Commissioner Parent
responded, "instead of fixing the
pension deficit with healthcare
savings, we should focus on the
pension. We don't want to cut out two
tires off of each fire engine to save
money over here."
City manager Bonfield said that
city employees had made several
"In defense of the employees. I'm
comfortable you're not going to find
other communities that have cut the
amount of employees we've cut. (Aside
from the police department and the
fire department,) we've lost almost 30%
of the employees.
"You have fewer people doing the job,
working harder, and the ones who
are remaining, granted they have
jobs, (but you don't want) to beat on
them. I don't want to adopt the theory
of just keep cutting, keep cutting,
keep cutting, until nobody wants
to be here, because you don't know
what that point is," Bonfield said. He
reminded the commission that the
city keep health insurance costs from
rising for four years, and that meant
that employees had rising copays and
decreasing benefits over the past four
Commissioner Parent agreed with
the city manager.
"That doesn't really look on the
revenue side, either, to get the
money...this whole city exists just to
provide services... we provide services
for the residents who choose to live
here. I think it's also important to
take a look of where can we enhance
revenue, and that's the marina type of
discussion," he told council.

Library Gets to Open on Mondays
The library requested $10,400,
which would fund its reopening on
"I really think that it's in the best
interests of the city to have it open
on Mondays" Mayor Mike Finnerty
Library staff, Jim Parent, and others
made a passionate case for adding this
funding to the library, but not every
commissioner remained convinced.
The city decided at the Tuesday
evening commission meeting to allow
this budget item, despite indicating
otherwise at the Wednesday afternoon

Q. How accurate are these health screenings?
A. Our adherence to stringent protocol, highly trained sonographers, state-of-the-art ultrasound machines, and

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.

reasons. Prevention Plus is here to identify disease before a problem occurs.

No Prescription necessary. These test are not included in routine physical.

Torn Brodersen, St. Fete Beach:
"We have a Constitution and they
need to follow it. The Constitution
says that they have a right to build
there. It's being used as a wedge
issue by the politicians. But the
Constitution guarantees the rights
of all Americans and it needs to be

Lorie Hawkshead, Gulfport: "I
think that while everybody is free
to practice whatever religion they
choose and but for that we have to
assume that it would be a peaceful
community. However, to want to build
so close to the site of a huge tragedy
for Americans and that extremists of
their faith had bombed and killed so
many seems very insensitive to me.
Americans visit that site every day
and regard it as a shrine. To make an
American pass by an Islamic Mosque
every day seems like a slap in the
face. I can't understand why the
Muslims would even want to build a
mosque there and why they wouldn't
be sensitive to the significance of the
site. It's holy ground to Americans.
If the Muslims are such a peaceful
community, then why would they
want to stir up so much angst?"

Debbie Piazza, Gulfport: "I believe
they should be allowed to build there.
Just because they're Islamic doesn't
mean that they don't have the right
to practice their religion wherever
their house of worship is. I think a lot
of people are misinformed about the
Islamic people; they are a peaceful,
religious people. They're not all the
Taliban. Our country was founded
on the freedom of religion and they
shouldn't start prohibiting building
a house of worship just because they
don't like the religious preferences.
There seems to be a lot of racism and
intolerance in this country, especially
now. People here have their own
ideas about it and many think that
foreigners shouldn't have any rights.
But you have to remember, we were
ALL immigrants once; we all came
from somewhere else."

Suzanne McVey, So. Pasadena: "I
think they have a right to build there;
they might have had something there
before the World Trade Center was
ever built, I'm not sure. In one sense,
you can see why people are so upset,
but not every Muslim is a terrorist
or was involved in the World Trade
Center bombing. You can't blame
a group or religion for a terrorist's
actions. I don't think it desecrates the
ground because they're Americans
too and they're not breaking any

Attorney Keith Sanders,
Handles Bankruptcies with Experience and Sensitivity

You could say my
motto is 'been
there, done that',"
says Keith Sanders, from
Sanders Law, P.A.
He says that for two
reasons. First, he says
his more than 18 years
of experience as an at-
torney specializing in
handling "literally thou-
sands" of bankrupt-
cies means that he has
dealt with virtually any
kind of problem or issue
that might arise with
them. And, secondly,
he had to file a Chapter
13 bankruptcy himself 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 situa-
tion where they have
been worried about how
to keep the lights on, but
I have been there myself
so I can really relate to
what people are going
through," said Sanders.
"Plus, many people are
very embarrassed when
they come to me, but
when I tell them how
embarrassing it was for
me to have to stand in
front of judges and col-
leagues who knew me
and go through the pro-
cess myself, that usu-
ally helps to put people

more at ease and under-
stand that I have been
there and done that MY-
"You know, in 99 per-
cent of bankruptcy cases
the situation is that bad
things happen to good
people. They have gone
through an expensive
health crisis or a divorce
or just got in over their
head with debt."
He began his career as
a staff attorney for the
U.S. Trustee in Atlanta.
He is licensed to practice
law in both Florida and
"I like what I do be-
cause I feel like I can
help people get a fresh
start," said Sanders.
"Since the initial con-
sultation is free, you re-
ally don't have anything
to lose to meet with me
and we can assess your
situation and see how
it might be best for you
to proceed. Bankruptcy
can be one solution to
getting back on your feet
financially, but it may
not be the best or only
solution for you.
Sanders has held a
number of seminars and

pers concerning bank-
ruptcy law in general,
ECF requirements and
new issues. He is a
former director of the
Bankruptcy Section of
the State Bar of Geor-
The firm also handles
Short Sale negotiations,
defense against foreclo-
sures, wills & trusts,
civil litigation and loan
Outside of the court-
room, Sanders lives in
an unusual home in
Gulfport that was one
of the featured proper-
ties in a recent Pink Fla-
mingo Tour of Homes. It
has a tree growing right
up through the floor and
up through the ceiling of
his kitchen. He has five
dogs and a cat.

Dire Need for Big
Brothers/Big Sisters
Who taught you to tie your first shoe?
Who went to the first game you ever
played in? Big Brothers Big Sisters
is currently seeking volunteers to be
a part of many "firsts" for children
right here in Pinellas County. There
are more than 200 children on the
waiting list hoping for a Big Brother,
Big Sister, or Big Couple. By investing
just a few hours a month, volunteers
can make a life changing impact on
a child.
Big Brothers Big Sisters of Pinellas
County is in dire need of mentors,
especially male and minority
mentors. There are more than 200
boys on the waiting list waiting to be

matched with a positive role model.
More than 74% percent of children
waiting for a "Big" are boys, but
only 34 out of every 100 inquiries to
volunteer come from men. Now more
than ever, Big Brothers Big Sisters
needs male volunteers to step up and
help kids.
Economic circumstances have
created a greater need for more
families to have professionally
backed long-term mentoring support.
Single-parent homes, neighborhoods
with gangs and crime, poor role
models and poverty can lead a child
to despair, lack of self-worth and
ultimately poor choices. In addition,
there are an increasing number of
children being raised by relative
caregivers in Pinellas County. These

caregivers are unexpectedly faced
with the challenge of raising children
with time and resource constraints.
Fortunately there are people who are
willing to step up and provide these
children with a positive, caring role
Mentoring is one of the most
rewarding, enjoyable and simple
things a volunteer can do. For as
little as one hour a week, volunteers
can add joy to the life of a child, and
ultimately, contribute greatly to his
or her potential. Together, "Bigs"
and "Littles" do simple, everyday
activities, such as going to a sporting
event, playing a game, going to a
park, or watching movies.

SPCA Pet of the Week
Older dogs rock, especially this 7 year old sweet
t Beagle named Sophie! She's adventurous, smart,
athletic, friendly, outgoing; spirit is what this little girl
specializes in. Having bragged about her temperament
and personality, I must tell you that Sophie needs her
rest time too, like after a walk and hard play. She's a
night time cuddler but still has that little puppy in her
too! She has a mischievous side and needs to be kept
busy or she will find her own activities. She has manners
and is more focused and easier going than younger dogs. If you're a Beagle fan
but would like the advantage of an older, more stable dog, then Sophie is your
girl. See her today at SPCA Tampa Bay, 9099 130 Ave. N. in Largo or call 727-

Meet Kenny, a light red-fawn male grey, can best be

shows a bit too much interest, though we may retest at
a later date. He's a great leash walker, loves car rides,
and will be a fantastic addition as a family pet. If you

Spinal adjustments remove any interference

interference with the nervous system
from a spinal misalignment our bodies are
not working at 100%...and this can effect
everything we do. Gulfport Chiropractic offers a

"Our proceeds from GeckoFest this year are going to go to the city of
Gulfport for our centennial celebrations." -Lori Rosso

"I went on the sunset cruise and it was great." Margarete Tober

"I thank Mr. O'Reilly for doing the right thing... To my knowledge,
the Gabber did not honor Mr. O'Reilly's request to print a correc-
tion and to my knowledge there is nothing legally that requires
them to do so other than perhaps the law of common decency which
of course is unenforceable." Margarete Tober, who disputed a quote
from city staff that appeared in a Gabber article about the proposed RV
ordinance this past July. At Ms. Tober's request, city manager sent the
Gabber a request to print a retraction. The Gabber chose not to print a

"I'd like to readdress the possibility of having golf carts legal."
-Bonnie Bray. Everyone on council except for councilwoman Michele King,
consented to bring the matter forward for discussion. Vice-Mayor King said
that the city already has an ordinance that is the same as Ozona's. Mayor
Yakes stopped her and said he would not engage in debate during the
public session.

"I think most of you are saying 'It's about time'." Fred Metcalf, about
the city's overlay districts, which the city started working on several years

"The city does a good job of publicizing them, does a good job of
filming them...There's no way that anybody's shut off from partici-
pating," -Bob Newcomb, who explained that although the city didn't in-
clude public comment in the workshops, interested people should still pay
attention to them before approaching the dais at council meetings.

ItStoroscoDe Guide

LEO (July 23-Aug.
22). Here's a strategy: Be highly
enthusiastic. Take your joy over
the top. Go on and on about how
wonderful it is that your dreams have
come true, even if this isn't the case.
Assume that it will be soon enough.
The rest of the world will support
you, if only because it's not worth
the effort to disillusion someone so
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You will
utilize different tools to increase your
power and influence. For instance,
instead of writing an e-mail, you will
find that you can communicate your
requests telepathically. You mentally
give clear directives to someone, and
this person seems to pick up on your
instructions and respond to your
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Being a
force for good is a big responsibility.
But over time and with daily practice,
it is suddenly effortless. It's no longer
what you do; it's just who you are.
Continue to hold yourself to high
standards and you'll lift the world
around you. This week you recommit
yourself to being the person you have
always wanted to be.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). When
you don't have a lot of desire, you
won't have a lot of frustration. Maybe
your frustration is a good thing -- you
want a lot out of life. You could just
accept that because of your ambition
you will spend part of your time being
perfectly, beautifully frustrated. Or
you could reduce your wish list and
just be happy.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21).
Progress will be thwarted for some
of the week. It's nothing you should
take too personally -- you are not
being picked on. Rather, the rest
of the world needs time to catch up
to your ideas. During this slight
pause, you'll have time to brainstorm
and dream. This is your chance to
broaden the scope of your vision.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). In
defining the word "frailty," the Oxford
English Dictionary suggests, "All
drama begins with human frailty."
Since you are trying to reduce the
amount of personal drama in your
life, you will spend much of this
week working to strengthen your
emotional core. You will face fear
and conquer it.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18).
Someone who wants to know you will
ask excellent questions. This will be
your opportunity to present who you
really are. Steer away from cliches,
and refrain from regurgitating views
that are popular. You can be you --
the true, original version. And when
you are, you're exciting and very
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). In
certain moments, it is easy for you
to lose your ego and truly see the
world as someone else does. This
week brings opportunities to step
out of yourself and suddenly acquire
knowledge that you could not have
found without taking the leap. You
will astound those who have more
conventional learning methods.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). It is
your nature to be kind and gracious.
You certainly don't expect thanks
for this. And yet, if you are not
acknowledged, you'll get the sneaking
suspicion that you are throwing your
kindness into an energy-sucking void
where it will disappear and make no
difference in the world. Go where you
are appreciated.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You
will strive for deeper understanding
of those around you. You'll gather
subtle clues as to their personality
and character. You perceptively read
the hints in their clothing, gestures
and handwriting. "A signature
always reveals a man's character
-- and sometimes even his name." --
Evan Esar


the Gabr. vr husa ic 98

GEMINI lI.iy 21-June 21). You
will be divinely guided to accomplish
a goal in a completely new way.
Believe in your mission, even when
others find your drive and manner
somewhat strange. You'll have to
explain yourself repeatedly in order
to be understood. Those who finally
get it will be supportive and proudly
CANCER (June 22-July 22). You
will see someone so beautiful that
your heart will literally pause -- and
then pitter-patter harder and faster
to make up for the lost beat. When
this happens, seize the moment.
Make something memorable out of
it. If you let this person go without
making a connection, you'll be
searching for him or her in the weeks
to come. This Week's Birthdays:
You will experience the unusual side
of life this year, as you tend to attract
unlikely and even supernatural
occurrences. Physical energy is
yours to spend over the next three
weeks, and you'll love what you can
do. In October and November, you
will enjoy the people and situations
you encounter while studying art,
religion or history. There's a family
mission to complete in December. In
2011, you'll help a loved one with an
important life transition, and in the
process, you'll transform yourself.

Premier Choice: Flood Insurance Agency That Pays You!

State Farm Customers
Prepare For October!
J eff DeNight is changing the way
people feel about their insurance
Jeff co-owns two insurance agencies,
Bentley-DeNight Insurance Services,
a full service, independent, Trusted
Choice agency that offers business,
auto, home, commercial, life, boat,
motorcycle, RV and umbrella policies.
He also owns Premier Choice Rebate
Flood Insurance, a flood insurance
agency that sells nothing but flood
"We're a flood insurance agency that
offers cash rebates back to all our
customers," Jeff explains.
So if you buy your flood insurance
through Premier Choice, you'll get at
least seven percent of your annual
premium (before fees and taxes) back
in the form of a rebate check.
"We give the money back to our cus-
tomers 60 days after the effective
month and subsequent renewals" Jeff
Here's how the rebate works: You
get seven percent of your policy back
the first year. Every subsequent year
for the next five years you receive one
percent more back until you get to the
sixth year. In the sixth year and every
year followmg, customers will get 12
percent back as a rebate.
This rebate can add up to thousands
of dollars for the life of your home or
business policy. The company sends
you a check rather than taking the
money off the premium so you can
spend it on whatever you choose.
Do Premier Choice Flood Insurance
policies cost more than other flood
insurance policies?
Nope, Jeff says. FEMA is the only

jen says, biare rarm announces inar
on October 1, they will not renew flood
flood insurance provider, so the cost
is the same no matter what flood
insurance company you use. The
policies written by his agency are
supported by the federal government
through FEMA.
FEMA pays a commission to the
agencies that write their policies.
Jeff and his agency are sharing that
commission with their customers.
Jeff says, things are tough for everyone,
and if his company has a
little to share with the community,
it's happy to do so.
"With the economy the way it is, we
thought it would be nice to give some-
thing back, especially since insurance
has such a negative connotation," Jeff
says. Maybe not anymore.

Get Global and Host an
International Student
Foreign high school students are
scheduled to arrive soon for academic
semester and year homestay
programs, and the sponsoring
organization needs a few more local
host families. The students are
anxiously awaiting news of their new
families. This is the last chance for
these young ambassadors to fulfill
their life-long dreams.
According to Pacific Intercultural
Exchange (P.I.E.) President, John

Doty, the students are all between
the ages of 15 and 18 years, are
English-speaking, have their own
spending money, carry accident and
health insurance, and are anxious to
share their cultural experiences with
their new American families. P.I.E.
currently has programs to match
almost every family's needs, ranging
in length from one semester to a full
academic year, where the students
attend local public and private high
P.I.E. area representatives match
students with host families by
finding common interests and
lifestyles through an informal
in-home meeting. Prospective host
families are able to review student
applications and select the perfect
match. As there are no "typical" host
families, P.I.E. can fit a student into
just about any situation, whether it
is a single parent, a childless couple,
a retired couple or a large family.
Families who host for P.I.E. are also
eligible to claim a monthly charitable
contribution deduction on their
itemized tax returns for each month
they host a sponsored student.
Families interested in learning
more about student exchange or
arranging for a meeting with a
community representative may call
P.I.E., toll-free, at 1-866-546-1402.
The agency also has travel/study
program opportunities available for
American high school students as
well as possibilities for community
volunteers to assist and work with

Safeguard Your
Dogs Against Heat
Hot weather is often deadly for
dogs who can succumb to heatstroke
in just 15 minutes and suffer brain
damage as a result. Dogs who are left
in parked cars are especially suscep-
Symptoms of heatstroke include
restlessness, excessive thirst, heavy
panting, lethargy, lack of appetite,
dark tongue, vomiting and lack of co-
ordination. If you see a dog showing
any of these symptoms, get him or
her into the shade immediately and
call a veterinarian. Lower the dog's
body temperature by providing water
to drink, applying a cold towel to the
head and chest, or immersing the dog
in tepid (not cold) water.
PETA (People for the Ethical Treat-
ment of Animals) makes the follow-
ing suggestions for safeguarding ani-
Don't carry your dog in the bed of
a pickup truck. While this practice
is always dangerous, heat brings the
added danger that dogs' feet might
be burned on hot metal.

Don't take your dog jogging, except
on cool mornings or evenings. Rest
often, and take plenty of water.
Trim heavy-coated dogs' fur, but
leave an inch of fur for protection
against insects and sunburn.
Keep dogs inside. If they absolutely
must stay outside, at least try not to
keep them outside during the hot-
test part of the day. Provide all-day
shade, drinking water in a heavy
bowl and a kiddie pool.

loved following all the area sports
teams. He was proud of his Irish
heritage and made several trips to
Ireland forming strong bonds with
family and friends there. His great

DAVID, 59, of
Gulfport, FL
wished to send
a last good-bye
to his local ex-
tended family
of friends; all of
whom have made
the last 30 years
of his life great. A Vietnam veteran,
David's "best of the best" times have
been spent in this little community.
He met his wife, Vicki Mitchell in
Gulfport and in his own words, "it
was love at first sight". Dave and
Vicki spent the last days of their 12
year marriage together with their
feline friend, Tanner, in their lovely
Gulfport home. This final time to-
gether was made possible with the

assistance of Hospice. David has
thanked us all here in Gulfport, but
many of us in his extended family
believe that it is we who owe Dave
a "thanks for the memories." David
will be missed and remembered by
many; not only in Gulfport, but by all
who knew him during a lifetime that
now seems much too brief. A memo-
rial service for David Shannon will
be held at Veterans' Memorial Park
at the corner of 54th Street S. and
Shore Blvd. in Gulfport on Saturday,
August 28, 2010 at 2 p.m. A gather-
ing of his friends and celebration of
David's life will be held at (' 1 I.1.,I .'s
immediately following the service.

Pro Football Takes
a Front Seat
It'ssss baaack! Politicians, you've
got competition. It's called
football and it is a welcome relief
although there are comparisons to
political campaigns. For one, it too is
a blood sport; for another, often much
is promised and little delivered.
Nonetheless, there's a variety of
action to interest me. Personally, I
prefer pro football. Nothing wrong
with college ball, the taxpayer
funded farm clubs for the pros.
(Now, there's a thought. Maybe the
National Football League can start
paying the bills for college football).
It's just that pro football gets my
attention first.
I guess it wouldn't do to say that
Florida, Florida State, Miami,
University of South Florida aren't

on my radar. How can you live in
Florida and be detached? Only if you
root for Penn State, Pitt, or West
Virginia. Actually, I'm a Western
Pennsylvania native who grew up
in the Washington, D.C. area. Back
in those days it was the Army-
Navy game that was big, or later,
Oklahoma and Maryland. Not so
much local to root for.
I played high school ball then tried
my hand at small college ball when
the small college was playing all the
big teams. My college locker mate,
even in the 1950s, was 230 pounds
and an 23-year-old army veteran. I
weighed 146. I decided that wrestling
was my best sport.
Anyway, I moved up to Beaver
Falls, Pa. just as Joe Namath
completed his high school career. So,
my interests focused briefly on high
school football. Also, the local high

schools were sprouting guys who
would later be pro athletes and that
was interesting (Montana, Marino).
I wasn't ready to give up the
Washington Redskins quite yet. So,
I went to Steeler games rooting for
the Redskins. The Redskin's owner,
a very racist George Marshall (he
resisted integrating his team until
forced to), was a great promoter. The
team had not only cheerleaders but a
marching band. Like the politicians
I mentioned earlier, Marshall
promised much and delivered little
even with great talent such as
quarterback Sammy Baugh.
At that time, the Steelers weren't
much better than the Redskins. I
eventually was weaned from the
Redskins to the Steelers a requisite
for living in the Pittsburgh area.
In the meantime, I looked at baseball
for a diversion. I had grown up
rooting for the Washington Senators
whose great achievements were to
get one game out of last place. Again,
the Pittsburgh Pirates weren't much
better. It wasn't until later about
1960 when the Pirates emerged. My
interest grew, particularly since my
wife is an avid baseball fan. The Rays
are an exciting team, but the Pirates
are acting like my old Senators.
I never picked up on basketball
probably because there weren't any
contending basketball teams in the
area colleges and pros.
Thus, I'm back to football. That
includes the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Don't give up on them. I have
faith, even while I root for the
Steelers. I haven't totally dismissed
the Seminoles, Gators, Bulls or
Hurricanes. That's impossible. And,
I haven't abandoned politics (better
to think of it as civic responsibility
to be involved in the process of
However, as each Sunday rolls
around well more than Sunday

Reaction to Ground
Zero and a Mosque
Dear Editor: The Gulfport Gabber
is a very important paper for a small
town. I am one of many who reads the
Gabber each week. One section I love
to read is "Something on my Mind".
I continually hope my opinions will
be swayed one way or the other. I
must admit, I read this section with
my hopes always dashed.
When I read the article about
a mosque at ground Zero, I was
reminded of a certain piece of paper
that we hold very close to our hearts,
this paper is The Bill of Rights.
The Bill of Rights commands and
prohibits Congress from making any
law respecting an establishment
of religion or prohibiting the free
exercise thereof.
There have been people of all faiths
in this country, and we need to
remember this. Because a person does
not agree with us, this does not make
them a bad person. Sometimes what
a person says causes us to perform a
little introspection, makes us think
inside ourselves. Quite often, what
we don't like about another is actually
what we don't like about ourselves.
A mosque at ground Zero might
not be the best place, but we need
to band together and show love
and tolerance towards others. We
need to remember that people of all
faiths lost a loved one on that fated
day! That day in modern history
was not a Muslim activity, it was an
activity of extremists. All faiths have
extremists, and each and every one
scares me.
Hatred is not something that most
faiths preach. We should love one

another, and that includes all!
Everyone is a child of a God, this
includes everyone! Doing the next
right thing is something we should
all strive for, doing something nice
for someone else actually feels good.
Please remember one very
important thing, when we point a
finger at someone, there are four
more pointing at us!
Mark Grantham

Dear Editor: I disagree with
the opinion of Bill Northrop in the
Gabber of 8/12-8/18/10. I do not see
that building a 13 story Islamic
building with a mosque on one floor,
two blocks from the World Trade
Center site, should be considered
insensitive. Unless there is evidence
to the contrary, I see no reason to
assume that extremist Islam will be
promoted there, any more than to
assume that extremist ( hi' -I I.iinly
will be promoted in the church being
built across the street.
In instances where it turns out
that extremist Islam or extremist
( li',-lI.mmily or any other religion
are promoted, I do think we all
need to pay attention, wherever
they are located. On the other
hand, if a religious group wants to
further interfaith and multi-cultural
understanding and cooperation, we
would all do well to help them make
it happen.
I understand that Bill Northrop does
not necessarily represent the view of
the Gabber. Nevertheless, without a
counter-balancing column, it leaves
the impression that both the Gabber
and possibly even the community
lean toward being intolerant.

Gulfport Centennial Countdown Continues!

00 Week Countdown to 100 Years!
100 Week Countdown to 100 Years!

Many folks will remember the old water tower in the city complex.
When did it go up and when did it come down? Answer next week.
Think you know the answer?
Send us an email with your answer, name and
phone number to News@theGabber.com

In just 8 weeks, Gulfport will
celebrate the centennial of its
incorporation, October 12, 1910. We'll
be reminding you every week with an
interesting old photograph from the
collection of the Historical Museum. See
if you can identify the people, places, and
above all the decade of each picture as it
comes along. To make it a little bit of a
challenge, we won't publish the correct
caption until the following week.
Last week: The names of all Gulfport
streets changed in 1928, when annexation
to St. Petersburg was being considered and
the towns had to be aligned into a common
grid. Though Davis Boulevard became
Beach, residents managed to hang onto
Tangerine and Lakeview Avenues. Waldo
Hildebrand operated the grocery store at
2832 Beach from 1927 until 1930, best
remembered for bringing a radio outside
so that the townspeople could hear the
Dempsey-Tunney boxing match.

S i y -question for your
i city government?
Email your request to News@theGabber.com
By Cathy Salustri
City of Gulfport
Q: Why won't the city council allow public comment at city workshops?
How are residents supposed to have any input?

A: The city clerk, Lesley DeMuth, explained that the city has a policy of
not allowing public comment at workshops.
"Workshop meetings of the City Council are held for the purpose of Coun-
cil being informed on and discussing matters which may come before them
for consideration at a regular or special Council meeting," the policy says.
"Public comment is not taken during workshop meetings. However, City
Council may request presentations when appropriate."
Since other cities- including St. Pete Beach- do allow public input, we
asked Gulfport Mayor Mike Yakes why Gulfport has such a policy.
"Workshops are for council to deliberate and ask questions," Mayor Yakes
explained. "It's their time to work together. Council needs an opportunity
to debate and discuss their point of views, their perspectives. It's the best
way to bring back for the people a decision for them to vote on at a public
So how should residents make their voice heard at a workshop? According
to Mayor Yakes, residents can make their voices heard before the work-
shop by getting in touch with their council members.
"They can, at any time, call their respective council members," Mayor
Yakes said, adding that any citizen has a voice with all council members,
not just their ward representative. He encouraged residents to call or email
their council members with their concerns about specific issues.

Gabber find out why: e-mail your questions to News@theGabber.com.

It's budget time again and local
governments are trying to keep
from raising taxes. Fine. Good. I
understand that need, but it makes
me cringe to see governments cut
employee benefits.
You see, despite the widely publicized
misconception that it's a walk in the
park to work for the government,
municipal employees take a
tremendous amount of crap and have
relatively few benefits. Paid vacation
and sick leave? Yes, they get that.
Pensions? Maybe, if they contribute.
Health insurance? Probably, but
just for them, and it isn't necessarily
great coverage. Raises? Not recently.
Tuition reimbursement? Don't make
me laugh.
Well, good, you might be saying to
yourself right now. I haven't gotten
a raise in three years, so what's the
big deal?
Before I answer that, understand
where I'm coming from. As a
1099 employee I buy my own
health insurance, save for my own

retirement, andpayboth the employee
and employer portions of my taxes.
I have no sick leave, vacation time,
pension plan, disability, or, really,
job security. I get a paycheck from
my clients, but I don't get raises. So if
anyone might feel like city employees
have too many perks, it might be
me. But I used to work for a local
government, and trust me, those
perks don't make it worth while.
Private sector employees have the
luxury of choosing their customers.
Nowhere in city hall is there a sign
that reads "we reserve the right to
refuse service to anyone," although
I've seen people treat city staff more
hideously than they would ever
dream of treating their dry cleaner.
Private sector employees can have
a bad day and shoot of an e-mail
they shouldn't. Result? They may get
disciplined or, in severe cases, fired.
Government employees can do the
same thing and end up on the front
page of the paper.
As a government employee, anyone
can find out how much money you
make, and citizens will not hesitate to
tell you, "I pay your salary. You have
to do what I say." Some taxpayers
feel like it is their constitutional right
to berate and belittle any government
employee. These employees cannot
send these people away; they must
accept unkindness and outright
mean-spiritedness from everyone
who walks through their door.
Ask any government employee
why they work for the government,
and all but a select few will tell you
"the benefits" or "job security." They
make less than their private sector
counterparts, take more abuse, and
are subject to a more public life. The
notion that they have job security
and can take their babies to the
doctor without worrying about how to
pay the bills makes these jobs more
palatable. But come budget time
some commissions- St. Pete Beach
is a prime example- think nothing of
slashing those benefits or reducing
the workforce.
That's when I hear people like
St. Pete Beach Commissioner Bev

Garnett say "they're lucky to have
a job"- as if that justifies chipping
systematically away at the one thing
that made them want to take the
job instead of a more lucrative one
elsewhere. That's' when I want to
grab her by the ear and drag her into
a city department. Let her do any
one of city staffs jobs for a few days,
and then let's hear how "lucky" they
are after she's led the charge calling
for layoffs and benefit reductions.
This woman, by the way, is the
same commissioner who did not
hesitate to speak up for funding
Beach Goes Pops, because that helps
local businesses, but she'll say the
city should remove a $5,000 line item
for tuition reimbursement because
"they're not our kids; we didn't raise
No, they aren't, and she may have a
point, but it's weak. That workforce
that you've reduced by 30% over the
past year serves the residents that
need city services. Businesses may
see government as an interference
to be dealt with, but homeowners
see government as a necessity.
Homeowners need services, like a
sewer system that isn't collapsing or
roads not pockmarked with potholes.
Yet, the commission rushes to cut
funding for the people and services
that help residents but turns around
and gives that money to business-
related efforts. While I don't dispute
that a healthy economy is vital to a
city's well-being, just who the hell is
this commission serving, anyway?
That staff that suffers while the city
hands money over to promotional
efforts while cutting their few paltry
benefits? Well, they make sure
residents have safe drinking water,
handle the sewage leaving the homes,
keep voters safe, and generally help
ensure that the citizens of the beach
have their basic needs met.
I'm not saying they're perfect, and
I'm not saying they don't screw
up. But they are the ones who do a
million thankless jobs every year,
often get yelled at in return, and
sacrifice a normal job for the bizarre
world of city hall.
For god's sake, let them have their
benefits. They're devoting their lives
to you; shouldn't your commission
at least make sure they can go to a
doctor when they're ill?

Safety Tips
Plan in advance your evacuation
and safety measures. When you first
see lightning or hear thunder, ac-
tivate your emergency plan. Now is
the time to go to a building or a vehi-
cle. Lightning often precedes rain, so
don't wait for the rain to begin before
suspending activities.
If outdoors avoid water, high ground
and open spaces. Avoid all metal ob-
jects including electric wires, fences,
machinery, etc. Unsafe places include
underneath canopies, small picnic or
rain shelters or near tress. Where
possible, find shelter in a substantial
building or in a fully enclosed metal
vehicles such as a car, truck or van
with the windows completely shut.
If lightning is striking nearby when
you are outside, you should crouch
down, put feet together, and place
hands over ears to minimize hearing
damage from thunder. Also, avoid
proximity (minimum of 15 ft.) to oth-
er people.
If indoors avoid water. Stay away
from doors and windows. Do not use
the telephone. Take off head sets.
Turn off, unplug and stay away from
appliances, computers, power tools
and TV sets. Lightning may strike
exterior electric and phone lines, in-
ducing shocks to inside equipment.
Suspend activities for 30 minutes
after the last observed lightning or

American Theatre:
Summer Camp and Drama Rama Fairy Tales

By Leigh Clifton
Kids from the American Theatre Summer Camp series show their silly side with funny faces
for the camera. They were in costume for perform a play, The Colorless Enchanted Forest,
which they co-wrote and starred in at the Florida Museum of Fine Art last Friday night. the
performance was the culmination of a summer camp series, offered by the theatre.
The American Theatre in downtown St. Pete has been offering weekly summer
camps for kids from ages 5-17, with Fairy Tales drama for the 5-7 year olds
concluding last week. This group of children, led by teacher Betty-Jane Parks,
assistant Angel Borths and intern Caitlin Kennedy, helped write the fairy tale
drama and helped with the casting of the different parts.
"They came up with their own creatures and words," Parks said with a big
smile. "We helped them with the costumes, but they had a lot of input. They've
been incredibly creative."
The premise of the play is that the Wand of Promise has been lost and the
creatures of the forest, of the sea and of the air are alarmed; the Enchanted
Forest is colorless! The Wand must be found or they will forever be without color!
After much searching, the Wand of Promise is found but really had nothing to
do with the Forest losing it's color all along. All it took was Imagination!

Financial Aid Myths
Don't believe these college financial
aid myths.
Myth #1: You can't afford college.
The truth is most college students
require some form of financial aid.
Don't ignore college because of its
"sticker price".

Established 1968 By Harry W.

Myth #2: You have to be very poor,
very smart or very talented to qualify
for financial aid. Financial aid comes
in many forms such as the federal
government, the college or univer-
sity itself, a parent's employer and
others. When you take the time to
explore all the possibilities, you will
be surprised as to what services you
may receive.
Myth #3: You can get more schol-
arships by paying someone to search
for you. Scholarship scams are ev-
erywhere. Beware of any group or
individual that guarantees a schol-
arship if you pay a fee. Check out
www.fastweb.com or www.finaid.org
for more information.
Myth #4: My child will pay for col-
lege, so my salary doesn't matter.
Most need-based financial aid is
based on parents' income and assets.
The FAFSA form, available online
at www.fasa.ed.gov asks for infor-
mation similar to what you ned for
your income taxes. After submitting
FAFSA, you'll receive a report that
shows how much the government ex-
pects you to pay.
Myth #5: You can wait until you get
accepted to a college before worrying
about financial aid. Most financial
aid is doled out on a first-come, first-
served basis. No one should wait to
get started. Looking for financial aid
probably isn't a teen's idea of a good
time, but it is better than graduating
from college in debt.

Jimmy Oswain, "Mr. Gulfport"

By Leigh Clifton

The first thing you
notice is the smile;
wide, sweet and
kind. Then comes
the handshake which is
almost always followed by a
big hug. He knows your name
right off the bat; if you have
animals or pets, he knows
their name too and will ask
about them. But that's just
how Jimmy is....
Jimmy Oswain is a fixture
in Gulfport; he's worked
at Sweetbay Supermarket
for 15 years and seems to
know everyone in town. He
has helped countless people
out to their car with their
groceries, bagged thousands
of grocery items and has
always maintained the sunny
disposition he's so famous
for. He is easily recognizable
on his trusty bike, which he
rides everywhere, unless it
rains or when he cabs to the
bowling alley where he bowls
in a mixed league almost
every night and frequently
bowls 300.. Yes, 300, the
perfect game... and often!
"Jimmy loves to bowl and
he's very good at it," smiles
his mother Jackie. He lives
with her in Gulfport.
1II dad taught me how to
bowl," Jimmy says. "I used
to go with him all the time.
I used to like to shoot pool at
the Blinker, but it's closed
Jimmy is a karaoke fan
and can often be found at
O'Maddy's, singing Tony
Bennett's San Francisco.
"He's actually pretty good,"
his mom Jackie laughs. "And
Jimmy is amazing when we
watch TV. I'll forget who
a particular actor is and

Jimmy will know his name
and what shows they've been
in. He never forgets a name;
he's always been like that!"
Jimmy has a particular
routine that he follows; he
goes to City Hall almost
every day to see the city
staff, including Stephanie
Hafley, who works in
Customer service for the City
and Lalanda Little, who is a
staff assistant. Both are at
the front desks. As soon as
Lalanda hears him say hello,
she buzzes him in. They
are part of his fan club and
he stops by to chat before
moving on to say hello to Sam
Rivera in IT or to chat with
Dan Carpenter about sports.
Sometimes the guys take
him to lunch. Miss Francine
in records and dispatch is a
good friend as well. When
Lalanda Little locks the City
Hall doors behind her every
night, Jimmy will often come
back and check on things to
make sure everything is all
right. She's known him for
two years and thinks he is
really funny and sweet. If he
happens to miss a daily visit,
the girls will ask him where
he was. They miss him like
Because he works at
Sweetbay, Stephanie calls
Jimmy her "in on the
skinny" about when the new
Sweetbay store near her
house is going to open.
"The sign says 2011, but
Jimmy told me he talked
to the manager and it will
be open by November,"
she whispers a bit
conspiratorially with a grin.
He keeps her updated about
the store's progress. Jimmy
also never arrives empty

seems to know everyone around town. He has worked at Sweetbay
Supermarket for 15 years.

handed on Wednesdays; he
brings the Sweetbay weekly
sales circulars for everybody
in the building.
The Gulfport PD's Detective
Pham had a hat made
for Jimmy that says "Mr.
Gulfport." Officer Zach Mills
shares Jimmy penchant for
pro wrestling and took him to
see Wrestle Mania. Sgt. Rob
Burkehart, who knew Jimmy
as a neighbor even before he
became a police officer, has
taken him to a Ray's game.
They've also gone to lunch
"I see him around the office
and around town at least 3-4
times a week," Burkehart
says. "He probably knows
everybody in Gulfport!"
Jimmy says he considers
Burkehart a great guy and
a good detective. They've
know each other for 12 years.
Jimmy's mom Jackie has
nothing but high praise for
Burkehart as well.
"Robs' been a good friend to
both of us," she says.
Jimmy is the middle boy

of three brothers; Larry is
the younger and Eddie is
the eldest. Jimmy swears
that growing up, Larry was
the instigator for any good-
natured shenanigans that
often happen among three
boys in a household. But you
never can tell, because all
of the sudden, that big wide
sweet smile turns on and a
twinkle in his eyes signals
that maybe, just maybe, he
might have been a bit ornery
too when he was growing up.
So when you see Jimmy
riding around town on his
bike or singing karaoke
at O'Maddy's, working at
Sweetbay or bowling at Ten
Pins, stop him and say hello.
He will remember you for it
and the next time he sees you,
he'll know your name. That's
what makes him an everyday
hero in my book. After all, he
IS "Mr. Gulfport".

Biscuits & Baseball

t -

By Melissa Lattman
The Whistle Stop Grille, which offers food to group outings lives up to its name as a freight
train passes. Built into a former train depot, the Rays AA affiliate- the Montgomery Biscuits,
play right by the train tracks.

Taking a week to help a family member drive a car from the Midwest back
towards Florida and a love for baseball led to several evenings at minor
league ball parks along the way. Nestled next to railroad tracks built into a
historical train station is the AA Tampa Bay Rays affiliate. A freight train
chugged through as the Montgomery Biscuits played on a recent balmy
southern summer night.
The park built in 2004 offered many seating options. The grassy outfield
area gave people a place to play their own game of catch or eat supper with
lawn seating at $8. Wheelchair accessible seating was available under a
weather protective over hang. There was also a playground and slide area
by third base. Our box seats in the front row next to the dug out were $10
and super box seats were $12. And fans can re-enter the stadium by show-
ing a ticket taker their ticket and have their hand stamped before exiting.
Rays' third baseman Evan Longoria's jersey is still seen at the park. Chil-
dren sported his shirt from his days as a Biscuit in 2006-2007. Other for-
mer Biscuits who are now Rays include Reid Brignac, John Jaso, Andy
Sonnanstine, and BJ Upton.
Familiar ballpark food like hotdogs, bratwurst and barbeque were avail-
able through windows in the brick walls of the old train depot. Food carts
offered fresh squeezed icy lime and lemon drinks. Plus of course biscuits
were available with the choice of sweet toppings, chicken, gravy and for
strawberry shortcake.
Games are from April until September. For more information on ball-
parks around the country go to www.minorleaguebaseball.com where you
can search by geography as well as teams. The Biscuits' Web site is at

Life Church: Loving God Loving People

By Cathy Salustri

Life Church in Azalea is
not your ordinary Chris-
tian church. They're a
small group that's just
starting out, and they
meet at the Azalea Recre-
ation Center on Sunday
mornings. But this church
leadership knows what
matters, and it isn't a
fancy building.
"Jesus said, essentially,
that the most important
thing is to love God like
crazy, and, after that, to
love people," Pastor John
Eldredge says. "That's
what we're doing here."
"A lot of authenticity is
lacking in some churches.
We want to get back to
the basics: Jesus and
friendship," Pastor John
"We have a really unique
philosophy of ministry.
We are really community-
based. You see, we feel
like if we use all our
money for ourselves we
aren't in keeping with our
With that in mind, Life
Church uses half of every
penny it collects to serve
the commu-
nity. Their
ranges from

sports drinks at bus stops
to renting out Walter
Fuller pool and opening it
to everyone this past 4th
of July. But don't expect to
hear the Pastor asking for
money during any of the
"I don't ask for money
during the service. I ask
people to pray and to love
Jesus. It drives me crazy
when churches use time
dedicated to worshiping
God to ask for money.
Why should money be the
focus?" He pauses and his
wife, JoAnna, adds that not
asking for money doesn't
mean people don't give.
"People do give; we have
a box at the back of the
church, and people give,"
she says.
On August 29, that money
will go to local school chil-
dren. Anyone who wants
free school supplies is
welcome at the Azalea Rec-
reation Center at 10:30, be-
cause Life Church is giving
away much-needed school
supplies. People don't need
to come to the service,
although Pastor John says
he would welcome every-
one and anyone who wants

any faith.
Pastor John hopes that
more people will join his
small congregation (cur-
rently at just under 40),
and he's looking for people
who want to learn more
about God.
"I want people who have
never been to church
before. If you're already a
church person, you can find
a church with a better kids
ministry or better pro-
grams, but I want people
who don't already have
a church. I want people
who don't know a lot about
Jesus. I'm not saying a
church person isn't wel-
come, of course, because
everyone is welcome, but
I'm looking for people who
have questions and want
New church
goers and old
&alike will be

surprised to see this young,
down-to-earth pastor. He
doesn't wear suits and he
doesn't stand on ceremony,
but he is clear that just be-
cause the church is relaxed
about religion, it's very seri-
ous about faith.
"I don't preach a watered-
down message," he says. Pas-
tor John says that message
is Jesus, and he's happy to
spread the word in jeans at
the local rec center instead of
in a suit in a fancy building.
"We don't want a building.
This way, we can put more
money back into the commu-
nity and showing people the
true meaning of 'Love thy
neighbor'," he says.
If you want to learn more,
call Pastor John or, bet-
ter yet, show up Sunday
morning at 10:30. No suits
required, and they won't
manipulate you for money.
They promise.

What are Health
Care Surrogates
and Living Wills?
A thoughtfully prepared disability
plan should cover who should
handle a disabled person's health
care matters as well as their
property management issues. After
all, health care matters are of
monumental importance because of
their deeply personal character and
the consequences those decisions
might have on the person's length
and quality of life. The best way to
avoid a guardian being appointed by
the court to make these health care
decisions is to designate a Health
Care Surrogate.
The Health Care Surrogate should be
in a good position to use substituted
judgement for the disabled person,

the principal, and thus should
have a solid grasp of the disabled
person's attitudes, the quality of
life the disabled person would find
satisfactory, and his or her religious
beliefs and philosophy of life. The
disabled person should be confident
in placing these important judgments
into the hands of the Health Care
A competent person has the right
to refuse medical treatment for any
reason whatsoever, even if that
refusal will result to an otherwise
preventable death. But what
happens if that person is unable to
communicate his or her wishes?
A living will goes into effect if a
person falls into a condition where
recovery is almost impossible. It is
a set of written instructions stating
an individual's desire not to be kept
alive through the use of medical
technology when that individual is in
a terminal condition and incapable of
giving informed consent or refusal for
further treatment. It also appoints
someone to make such decisions on
that person's behalf.
A living will is one of the most

techniques available to the average
person. Numerous studies have
shown that a large portion of all
health care costs in the United States
are incurred in the last few days of
a person's life. The cost burdens to
the family members of individuals
in terminal conditions are also
considerable. Many families are
forced to spend substantial amounts
of their income and savings in order
to medically prolong the lives of their
loved ones for just a few days.

PRAYER TO ST. JUDE This novena has
never been known to fail. This novena must be
said for 9 consecutive days. Publication must
be promised. Oh Holy St. Jude, Apostle and
Martyr, great in virtue and rich in miracles,
near kinsman of Jesus Christ, faithful inter-
cessor of all who invoke your special patron-
age in time of need, to you I have recourse
from the depth of my heart and humbly beg
to whom God has given great power to come
to my assistance. Help me in my present
urgent petition. In return, I promise to make
your name known and call you to be invoked.
St. Jude, pray for us all who invoke your aid.
Amen. Say 3 Our Fathers, 3 Hail Marys & 3
Gloria's. R.S.

- St. Michael, the Archangel, Defend Us In
Battle; Be Our Defense Against the Wicked-
ness and Snares of the Devil. May God Re-
buke Him We Humbly Pray; and Do You Oh
Prince of the Heavenly Host, By the Power
of God, Thrust Into Hell Satan and the Other
Evil Spirits Who Prowl About the World For the
Ruin of Souls. Amen. St. Michael, I Resort
to Your Protection and in My Faith, Offer This
Light Which Shall Burn Every Tuesday Com-
fort Me in My Difficulties and While Lodging in
the House of Our Savior Intercede for Me and
My Family That We Will Be Able to Hold God
Close to Our Hearts and Be Provided for in All
of Our Necessities. I Beseech You, to Have
Infinite Pity in Regard to Favors I ask of You
(Name Them) So That I May Be Able To Over-
come All Difficulties as You Did the Dragons
at Your Feet. Our Father (Say 3 Times). Hail
Mary(Say 3 Times). Glory Be (Say 3 Times).
This Prayer is to be Said 9 Tuesdays, in Suc-
cession and Each Tuesday a Candle Shal
Be Lighted and a Copy of This Prayer Lft in
the Church to Help Another Soul in Distress
and Support the Devotion to St. Michael. This
Miraculous Saint Grants Everything, No Mat-
ter How Difficult, Before the Termination of 9
Tuesday. G.F.
