Capri and Palms Bridge Replacement Starts January 21st A project to replace two 60 year-old bridges on Treasure Island begins this month and is expected to take about ten months to complete. Construction of a new Isle of Palms bridge on 112th Avenue and a new Capri Isle bridge on 116th Avenue is set to begin on January 21, 2013.

If you did, you can go look up your old school pictures at the Gulf Beaches Historical Museum. The museum belongs to the county but volunteers manage the museum, which lives in an old church converted to a house converted to a museum on Pass-aGrille. Lance Peterson, a volunteer and vice president of Friends of Gulf Beaches Historical Museum, says the museum could use volunteers. The time commitment, he says, doesnt ask too much of people. We ask for two three hour shifts a month, he says, during which time volunteers greet people, answer questions, and show off the museum. Currently the museum has about 50 volunteers, Mr. Peterson says, but not all are considered active volunteers. At any given time about half of them are active, he says, As age takes over their lives... They have less time to give to the museum. If you can give the museum six hours a month or more, Mr. Peterson asks that you call Sandie Lyman at (727) 458-4058 to set up training. You need not be a trained historian or have any experience.City Hall HousekeepingST.

Sordid Lives 1996. Four years later, it was done as a movie, which turned out to be a very successful movie! As usual, the play and the movie were two entirely different animals and the play turned out to be the better of the two! Later on, this play was made into a TV series. Written by a Texan named Del Shores the play takes place in Texas. It was the intent of the playwright that audiences just might catch a glimpse of themselves, someone they know, or society in general by watching and listening carefully to this play. It has a very deep underlying theme, that will only be seen as the play progresses. This play is timeless in this respect. Some things never change with age and this play is a great example of just that. What the playwright brought out many years ago is just as relevant today. Sordid Lives is a madcap comedy about one exceptionally nutty family in a small Texas town. It is a fast-paced comedy, full of wacky relationships and warped senses of the characters love for one another. Look and listen carefully, you might see someone you know! Be advised however, that adult language and situations are portrayed in the play. Consequently, the Players advise only people 18 or over attend. Join the Players and your neighbors for another evening or afternoon of great entertainment at the Hickman Theater. Tickets are available at the Gulfport Chamber of Commerce, the Gulfport Casino, the Gulfport Beach Bazaar, at the door, or by calling them at 727-322-0316 for will-call tickets. The play will run for three weeks, from January 10th through January 27th. Curtain time for Thursday, Friday and Saturday is 8 p.m, while Sunday is 2 p.m. For more information about this play or the Gulfport Community Theater, please visit their website at: http:// www.gulfportcommunityplayers. org.Movie Day Dont forget Tuesday, January 15th at 11 a.m. is free movie day with a lunch special rib sandwich, pork and beans all for $2.50 at the Gulfport Senior Center at 5501 27th Ave. S. where good friends meet!

I was the only person represent ing or being from Gulfport, and as they compared their language to other language within the State of Florida... the one thing that they kept coming back to was, Well, what does Gulfport do?... I spoke to the Commission and actually presented my regis try card... theyre also looking at making it a separate database, searchable by public... I say this to remind you that while we may be a very small city in this county, the things that we do, the things we say, are looked at by others. Jan Lowe, about the Pinellas County Domestic Partner ship Registry I just wanted I guess mainly to ask the mayor if anything was happening... we have a citizen John Grier who had some paint ings he wanted to present.

Deputy Dave Mancusi, when Pinellas County Sheriffs They gotta get em some shorts A man in the audience, as the Pinellas County Sheriffs Deputies introduction to the commission left the front of council chambers. I dont know if anybody called for them, but they were pretty quick. Bob handling of a loud disagreement in his neighborhood that he felt could have escalated. They didnt realize you could have handled it yourself. Mayor Steve This is how we treat our people, and now theyre part of our people. Tom DeYampert, about the signs donated honoring St. Pete Beach Police and how he felt the PCSO could see the way the community treated others I mean, you would have thought we were having a baby out there. Mayor Steve McFarlin, about the home moved to a new lot in Pass-A-Grille How much time should we allot for that? Vice Mayor Marvin Shavlan, when Commissioner Bev Garnett said she would be making a farewell speech Im really excited about Hotel Zamora! Vice Mayor Marvin Shavlan, who also reminded Community Development Director George Kinney that the new owners promised to clean up the property by the next hearing Nobody reads the stuff we put in the papers, the back of Paradise News. I mean, come on, lets be practical. Steve Phalor, about city notices for development Hotel Zamora Will Rise AgainST. PETE BEACH After years of indecision, the abandoned white behemoth on the corner of 37th and Gulf Boulevard will soon be home to a new boutique hotel. On December 20, the Hotel Zamora came out of foreclosure and the new owners, SPB Acquisitions, received approval Tuesday night to create 50 hotel rooms on the property. The commission approved 36 hotel rooms several years ago; this represents the maximum number of rooms a hotel in the Bayou Residential District can have. This leaves 275 more hotel rooms up for grabs by developers in Bayou Residential, the Activity Center, Town Center Core, and Coquina West. This does not include existing lodging, according to Community Development Director George Kinney said. If the Hotel Zamora doesnt create all 50 rooms, the rooms they rooms they do not create go back into the pool of rooms available. It appears, Vice Mayor Marvin Shavlan said in an e-mail, that that can take this property to completion. Tuesday night the city commission voted to allow 50 units of tourist lodging, or hotel rooms, at the site. This has been a distressed asset. The now-property owner had to pull it out of bankruptcy, Marilyn Healy, the attorney representing Hotel Zamora and its parent company, SPB Acquisitions, said. We have the money, we want to get started, and your staff has been great to work with She did tell the commission the company would need what she considered minor variances that would come before coming before the commission in the coming weeks.


30 Gabber January 10 January 16, 2013 By Holiday Mathis transit through Capricorn will offer roller coaster action, but its more of a kiddie coaster than a Tower of Terror. Mercury, Venus, Saturn and Pluto make sure to keep the game interesting, setting up potentially exciting arrangements and issuing challenges worthy of their own situation comedy. Mercury provides the laugh track when it enters Aquarius on Friday. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Youre still charged up by the sun, Mercury and Venus in your sign. When the sun leaves your realm on Saturday, youll get the wonderful satisfaction that comes from looking at your past work with the perspective of time on your side and determining, objectively, that its good -really good. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). The week gets better as it progresses. Youre coming into your own now, and when the sun reaches your part of the sky on Saturday, youll be fully in your zone. Go carefully with kind to let it go to your head, but its nice to have down-to-earth friends around as a reminder. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Your emotional reactions might be a little over the top this week as your already impressive powers of empathy get activated to the max. So commercials or cheering loudly for Honey Boo Boo, chalk it up to your ability to relate to almost anyone. ARIES (March 21-April 19). Youre as spontaneous as a volcano, but luckily one that spouts good ideas and love. Some will still jump back, surprised by your actions because they dont understand your motives. Being on the inside, you know that everything you do happens in a natural progression. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). People want to meet with you, which could be a waste of your time. Some meetings only accomplish half of what they set out to do, but thats better than the many meetings that accomplish absolutely nothing. Youll be successful when you make a list of what you can accomplish on your own and tackle it line by line. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Its not always easy to mount a solid shield of spiritual protection against the mental and emotional projections of your peers, especially when those projections are positive. But try anyhow. Its important to stay independent of the good opinion of others. Ultimately, youll be happier if you are purpose-driven instead. CANCER (June 22-July 22). If you feel like youre not getting the recognition you should be getting, this week. You will get your time. Theres absolutely nothing wrong orchestra wouldnt sound right LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). One way to keep from getting stressed out is to go for simplistic, achievable results. Keeping it simple in many cases this week will involve telling the truth. Oh what a tangled web we weave, said the Scottish author Sir Walter Scott, born under your sun sign. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Your earthy characteristics include emotional stability, practicality and such a healthy respect for the tangible that you sometimes doubt intangible things really exist. You may question unseen forces such as love and spirit, but youll be quite relieved to witness the evidence that comes your way on Wednesday. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). As your guiding planet Venus tersely angles Uranus, you may be inspired to push your luck. If you dont go for the gusto, how are you ever going to make yours an epic story? Then again, its hard to predict how people will react to grand gestures. Be willing to accept the consequences whichever way they pan out. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Youll love -really love -what you have. Dont think this in any way limits you to having this same thing forever. If anything, youll be given more bounty because the universe delights in your appreciation. Inspiration comes with the dreamy Pisces moon on Tuesday and Wednesday. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Youll meet with some resistance to your plans. Consider your options. Sometimes its better to retreat than to push through. In fact, a swift retreat could be one of the more powerful tools in your arsenal. It shows that you really only want whats good for you and everyone involved. This Week's Birthdays: Youve put in quite a lot of work, and its about time that you graduated from your apprenticeship and stepped into more of a leadership position. For the next 10 weeks, will turn up the intensity on your personal life. Afterward, youll be happy for a mellower experience of love. February shows you trading up or making a big purchase.

Gabber January 10 January 16, 2013 33 Hello, 40Turning 40 didnt get to me. Not really. It was more that, as if on some unseen cue, my body started to turn against me. Im not incredibly hung up on age. I dont care if you ask how old I am or how much I weigh. I dont see the point in lying about your age, or, at least, lying to make myself younger. I see it this way: if I tell people Im 30 when Im really 40, they walk away thinking, man, she looks horrible for 30 but if I say Im 50, they (hopefully) walk away saying, wow, she looks good for 50! Nevertheless, 40 has, thus far, been weird. You see, it started with me pretty much going blind. At least, in my mind I was. Glaucoma runs in my family. My mom got her diagnosis when she was 37, by which time her eyes had already been rather damaged. Her mother had it, as did, were fairly certain, her mom before her. So when my local eye doctor told me last year that I had higher-than-normal eye pressure readings and might, given my spectacular family history, want to see a specialist, I promptly thanked him, took the referral, and tucked it in my to-do folder. For about a year. Smart, right? Of course, right about the day I turned 40, I noticed my eyes hurt when I used them to read. Or watch TV. Or use the computer. I found myself holding the Gabber at a distance and wondering when we switched to a smaller typeface. that werent really there (at least, I hope they werent). For someone who has a father who believes he suffers from every malady save hypochondria, this was not an advanced glaucoma, eye cancer, and maybe a detached retina or two. When I brought this up while my parents and I were celebrating my birthday, my mom wanted to know why I hadnt made an appointment sooner. Because, I told her, I remember her putting drops in her eyes and not being able to read or drive afterwards. How would I work if I couldnt write articles or drive to interview people? She asked me how I intended to do any of those things if I went blind. Game, set and match, madam. I made the appointment. Turns out I have something that sounds like Presbyterianism. Im pretty sure thats not the right name, but I didnt quite catch it when he told me and cant bring myself to have my hearing checked right now, too. I do know this much: it basically means I need glasses because, as the eye doc gently put it, my eyes are aging. The solution? Progressive lenses, a fancy word for bifocals, even though the glasses guy tried valiantly to convince me they werent. Hes right. Theyre so much worse. Instead of two types of vision, these seem to have about a zillion. Instead of having to squint when I read, I now stumble around like a drunk. And apparently theyre only for reading close up, a fact that really could have helped me out that the bottom part to read which made driving just a darn pleasure when later that day. So, to be clear, I went from 20/15 vision to bifocals. Yup, hello 40. My bodys no longer building bone mass, my lower back reminds me regularly I havent been to the gym nearly enough, and I weigh a good 35 pounds more than I did when I graduated high school. Ive started to walk into rooms and forget why Im there, and more than once Ive turned to the person next to me, started a sentence, and realized I have no clue what I was going to say. If 40 is the new 30, I pity the 50-year-olds. And yet... there are worse things. Not living to turn 40, for example. I turned 40 the day that waste of a human life walked into Sandy Hook Elementary and killed those kids. On my birthday I found out that someone I love went into rehab. Last week, we drove past a car abandoned by a 23-year-old jumper on the Skyway. So turning 40 isnt that bad. As Ive seen, it beats the alternatives. So Im older than I was. Big deal. Age, the saying goes, is just a number. Of course, its one I cant see without my bifocals.

36 Gabber January 10 January 16, 2013 Banning the Smoking BanBy Cathy Salustri When a court decided Sarasotas beach smoking ban didnt hold water, the implications reached across the bay to Gulfport. The city drafted its beach smoking ban which also bans smoking in childrens play areas around the language in the Sarasota County law. Sarasota Judge Maryann Boehm ruled last month that only the Florida legislature, not cities and counties, could ban smoking in public places. This ruling supports St. Petersburg attorney Andy Stricklands assertions that Gulfport had no right to ban smoking on its beaches or other public areas. Mr. Strickland, supported by incoming Councilman Michael Fridovich and others, held smoke-ins on Gulfport beach and, when ticketed for smoking, took the city to court. In light of the December ruling in Sarasota, Gulfport City Attorney Andy Salzman says the city will change the rules. Weve agreed to amend the ordinance to avoid continued litigation, City Attorney Salzman says. Pending approval of an upcoming ordinance, the city will no longer ban smoking on the beach and will revert to designated Were creating a smoking area that gives visual access, he explains of the designated smoking areas. Lets say you want to watch the ballgame, you want to be able to smoke, so were creating a smoking area that gives visual access to the game. Gulfport, he explains, always allowed smoking in certain areas only around that the city will now take care to make sure the smoking areas allow people to see the game or supervise their children. Mr. Salzman says this will halt litigation against the city. The city has yet to decide how close to childrens play areas it will allow smoking. Mr. Fridovich, who will take the Ward Four seat on council come March, says he hesitates to talk about the issue because he wasnt sure about possible Im glad to see that the two sides were able to reach a mutual agreement, he told the Gabber. House Bill 143 would allow cities and counties, not the state, and counties to control smoking inside their borders. Salzman says.
