Preparing for the Feast

. t : ..., '-,

Getting a jump on gratitude, Bob Loper's family started cooking early in the week. Tuesday afternoon, Mr.
Loper cooked his first-ever cranberry sauce. He used local oranges from Gulfport Produce and South Florida
honey. Mr. Loper lives out of state and came to Gulfport to visit family for the holidays, unaware that he would
be put to work in the kitchen.
This Thursday, the second annual Thanksgiving on Gulfport Beach will take place at 2:30. Look forthe event
on facebook and bring a dish to share.

Dear Editor: After reading the
article in the Gabber Thursday,
we drove down Gulfport Blvd.
towards Pasadena. The placement
of a crosswalk at 17th Ave. would be
great for crossers' convenience but
maybe not for the drivers coming the
other direction (from Pasadena) and
the crossers' safety. It seems that it is
on a "blind curve" where visibility is
not good coming from the Pasadena
area. Perhaps a better location would
be around 16th (or between 15th and
17th) where both sides of the curve
could see the flashing lites.
Maybe you all should drive down
there and check it out. Not that you
haven't done this already. Just a
thought for safety.

Attorney Keith Sanders, Handles
Foreclosure Defense and Bankruptcies
with Experience and Sensitivity

ou could say my
V 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 20 years of
experience as an attorney
specializing in handling
"literally thousands" of
bankruptcies means that he
has dealt with virtually any
kind of problem or issue that
might arise with them. And,
secondly, he had to file a
Chapter 13 bankruptcy
himself. He says that
experience makes him very
sensitive to the kinds of
things people face when
making the difficult decision
to file.
'Most attorneys have
never been in a situation
where they have been
worried about how to keep
the lights on, but I have been
there myself so I can really
relate to what people are
going through," said
Sanders. "Plus, many people
are very embarrassed when
they come to me, but when I
tell them how embarrassing
it was for me to have to stand
in front of judges and
colleagues who knew me and
go through the process
myself, that usually helps to
put people more at ease and
understand that I have been
there and done that

male actors. Mr. Green should be in a
70-80 age range, with a slight Yiddish
accent. The younger actor should not
have a Yiddish accent, and should
be in the 25-35 age range. Auditions
will consist of random cold readings
and some improve.
Mr. Green, an elderly, retired dry
cleaner, wanders into New York
traffic and is almost hit by a car
driven by Ross Gardiner, a 29 year
old corporate executive. The young
man is given the community service
of helping the recent widower once a

-t *** .*,-

Despite what you may
have read or heard
recently, any debt
discharged in
Bankruptcy is a non
taxable event as far as the
IRS is concerned.

We understand this is not
an easy process or
concept to grasp. We
would like an opportunity
to explain in depth and in
terms that are relatable to
you, the homeowner, just
what this means and how
it could be of benefit to
you and your future.
Every situation is differ-
ent and therefore has a
different solution, so
please call us and let us
discuss what is best for
you, and then you can
decide what course to
take. Remember there
we would like the chance
to show those to you.
Only you can make the call.
Evening and weekend
appointments are available.
Sanders Law, PA.
6702 Gulf Blvd.
St. Pete Beach, FL.

'You know, in 99 percent 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.
Department of Justice in
Atlanta. He is licensed to
practice law in both Florida
and Georgia.
"I like what I do because I
feel like I can help people get
a fresh start," said Sanders.
"Since the initial
consultation is free, you really
don't have anything to lose to
meet with me and we can
assess your situation and see
how it might be best for you to
proceed. Bankruptcy can
be one solution to getting
back on your feet
financially, but it may not
be the best or only
solution for you.
Sanders has held a number
of seminars and written
professional papers
concerning bankruptcy law in
general, ECF requirements
and new issues. He is a
former director of the
Bankruptcy Section of the
State Bar of Georgia.
The firm also handles
Short Sale negotiations,
defense against foreclosures,
wills & trusts, civil litigation
and personal injury.

a comedy about two men, who do not
want to be in the same room together,

Invest In Your Debt and
Make Your Lender Dizzy
Dear Mary: Soon I will receive
an inheritance that is almost equal
to the amount remaining on my
mortgage. I am a widow, age 55, with
no dependents. I have 25 years with
the same employer and have been
participating in the company's 401k
plan for the past 15 years. I plan to
work until I am 65. Should I use the
inheritance to pay off the mortgage
or, as friends suggest, invest it in a
variety of stocks and bonds and keep
my mortgage because the interest is
tax-deductible? -- Eleanor D.
Dear Eleanor: You need to check
with your tax professional because,
as you know, I am not one. However,
ifI were you, I'd pay off that mortgage
so fast the lender would get dizzy.
Investing in your debt is always a
wise decision because you cannot
lose. Just keep in mind that your
mortgage should be the last debt you

Ji eap$kate

pay off -- after you have a healthy
emergency fund and you have paid
off all of your unsecured debts.
If you pay off your mortgage, you own
your home. No matter what happens
to the economy, your health or your
job, you have no rent or mortgage
As for the deductibility of mortgage
interest, it is highly overrated.
Let's say you pay $1,000 a year in
mortgage interest and you are in the
28-percent tax bracket. By deducting
that $1,000 from your taxable
income, you realize a $280 reduction
in the taxes you owe. Does that make
sense to you to choose to pay $1,000
so you can get $280 back? If so, I
have a better deal for you. You send
me $1,000 every year and I promise
to send back $500 every April 15, no
questions asked!
Dear Mary: A friend suggested that
we look into a plan called "life estate,"
which would make sure that our
home would go to our children, even

in the event that we would have to
go to a nursing home and our monies
run out. We understand this plan
would not permit the nursing home
to take our home. Your thoughts? --
Tom and Jackie
Dear Tom and Jackie: I am not an
attorney, but I do have experience as
a real estate broker. Generally, "life
estate" is a term used to designate
the way legal ownership or "title"
is held on real property. To do this,
you would deed your property to
your children, who become the
"remaindermen," and you become the
"life tenants."
As the life tenants, you retain
possession of the property, including
full costs of maintaining the
property. The life tenants cannot sell
the property without the consent of
the remaindermen. Further, your
children would receive full ownership
(fee simple) immediately upon the
death of the last life tenant, without
the property going through probate.
There are three advantages for you
to convey your property now to a life
1. You will have the legal right to
remain in your home for the rest
of your lives, without triggering a
taxable event.
2. The property immediately passes
to the remaindermen without the
necessity of a probate upon your
3. Most states see a life estate as
a limited interest, rather than a
full asset, so you could more easily
qualify for Medicaid assistance, if
I suggest that you meet with a
qualified real estate attorney or
escrow company if you wish to deed
your property to a life estate.

t tiIoroscope Guide

By Holiday Mathis
The balsamic moon leads the way
this week. This moon's name may
sound like a hippy-dippy salad
dressing, but it's actually a restful
sliver of lunar energy eager to heal
your worries, show you a glimmer
of hope and help you believe again.
Next comes the new moon on
Monday -- a perfectly fitting concept
that once was immortalized in '80s
pop music. This week's fresh energy
has a similar driving beat.
21). It takes an animated person to
realize when a scene is static. The
others will just call it "normal" and
be content to operate within it until
they see the difference. You like
to move energy around, and that
skill will come in handy now. You'll
change people's perspectives and
lives this week just by being you.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19).
This week you'll experience another
one of those situations that are no
one's fault, and yet you're the only
one who can make it better. Just
know that making it better is not
the same as accepting blame. By
taking responsibility you are being
the bigger and better person -- but
that is nothing new for you.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18).Noone
can take away your power to choose
what to think. Choosing thoughts is
one of your most important abilities,
and you'll use it well. It does take a
bit of experimentation, as thoughts
don't always lead to the expected
place this week. But you'll start to
recognize the thoughts that lead to
action, movement and love.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20).
There have been times when you've
wanted to amp up your appeal, but
this week you can't afford to get any
more appealing than you are. You
don't need people wanting things
from you. You have enough on the
schedule already. In order to stay
focused, you'll give the outside world
a little less attention than usual.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Why
is it that the people we open wide
our homes and schedules to never

take us up on the offer? A Scottish
proverb suggests that what can be
done at any time will be done at no
time. That's why if you really don't
want to set up a visit with someone
this week, you should say, "Come on
over any time!"
TAURUS (April 20-May 20).
Methods of change don't work unless
you work them. Nothing happens
until you get involved and take
action. However, some methods are
more exciting and motivational than
others. You'll strike on a new system
that has helped many achieve
results. If you follow it, you'll get the
same results or better.
GEMINI (MI.iy 21-June 21). Most
things of value are hard won. If it
happens very easily, it's usually a
sign that there will be more to pay
later. Keep this in mind as a too-
good-to-be-true scenario unfolds this
week. Take what's given and enjoy
it, all the while realizing that the
work has only just begun.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Your
week will be filled with colorful
characters. Some seem to love their
pets more than they love their family,
friends and people in general. It
doesn't only seem true; it is true. If
you're to pursue a relationship with
this type of person, you'll have to be
in a relationship with their animals,
too, or it's not going to work.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You've
renegotiated in the past, and now
you're not so sure you can be trusted
to keep the agreements you make
with yourself. Try again anyhow.
Make a small promise and keep it,
and then another and another. This
is being human. Later you'll look
back and wonder why you chose to
see it as a struggle.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). How
big of a game do you want to play? If
you want to play in the top leagues,
you must be able to handle the top
problems. As for the petty troubles
of this week, try to approach them
with grace and certainty. They are
what make you better able to handle
an ever-expanding life.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Caution:

Outrageous nonsense may try
to pass for plausible reality. The
average casual passerby likely
will be objective enough to see the
outrageous nonsense as utterly
ridiculous, while intelligent people
close to the action may begin to
question their rationality. The moral
of the story is to keep objective people
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Each
person has a unique tolerance level
for togetherness. If someone wants
more social attention than you do,
it can feel suffocating. If someone
needs to be alone more, it can feel
like a rejection. Avoid the pain of
mismatched needs by consciously
seeking those with a similar social
This Week's Birthdays: You
know the difference between big
problems and small problems, and
you refuse to get caught up in stress
or worry over small problems. The
success that happens right at the
top of 2014 is a direct result of your
stellar attitude. You'll make an
excellent trade in January; it may
be trading your work or commitment
for something you want very much.
The love that comes into your life
in February takes an unusual form.
You'll put much effort into getting a
certain relationship right.

Joint Resolution
An estimated 27 million Americans
suffer from osteoarthritis of the
knee or hip, a condition in which
the natural cushioning of cartilage
in the joints wears away (usually
from aging). As a result, bones more
closely rub against one another,
causing pain, swelling, stiffness and
To remedy the situation, many
sufferers turn to the nutritional
supplements glucosamine and
chondroitin, which purportedly ease
osteoarthritis symptoms and promote
cartilage health and growth. There's
plenty of evidence that they do -- in
horses and dogs.
In people, the scientific evidence
is sketchier. A 2006 National
Institutes of Health study, for
example, found that for most
patients with osteoarthritis, there's
no significant difference in pain relief
between glucosamine, chondroitin,
combinations of the two and a
For real relief, scientists say greater
evidence points to two primary
therapies: weight loss and exercise.
The former means less pressure on
knee joints. One poundlost translates
into four times less stress on the
knees. And pretty much any kind of
exercise appears to help reduce pain

An English study confirms what
parents have long known: Young
children who go to bed at irregular
hours are much more likely to display
bad behaviors. The study surveyed
more than 10,000 children (ages 3, 5
and 7) and their parents.
Other contributors to chronic
misbehavior: skipping breakfast,
having a TV in the bedroom, poverty
and a mother in poor mental health.
The good news is that, at least
regarding bedtimes, the bad behavior
is reversible. When troublesome
children began going to bed at a
decent hour every night, they quickly

became less problematic, according
to both scientists and parents.

You & THE


By Robert J. Myers, Esq.
What You Need to
Know About Florida's
New Power of
Attorney Act (Part I)
Beginning October 1st, 2011,
Florida's new Power of Attorney Act
(F.S. 709) has altered the way powers
of attorney (POAs) are drafted, used
and enforced. I will detail several
of the fundamentally important
changes in this article.
No springing or contingent POAs:
All POAs are now immediately
effective once properly executed.
POAs made on or before September
30, 2011 allowed the provision that
a POA did not take effect until a
triggering event transpired, such as
a determination that the principal

was incapacitated and could not
manage property. These earlier
drafted "springing" or "contingent"
POAs are still valid under the new
statute, but they cannot be updated
with the "springing" or "contingent"
provisions intact.
Revocation: Just making a new POA
is not enough to revoke a prior POA.
If the principal desires to revoke a
POA, the principal must do it by:
1. Express revocation in a new
POA. The new POA must expressly
state all other POAs are revoked; or
2. In a writing signed by the
principal. This standalone revocation
is not required to be witnessed or
No incorporation by reference:
Powers of the agent cannot be
incorporated into the POA by just
referring to a Florida statute that
states the powers. The powers must
be specifically stated in the POA.
However, there are two exceptions
to this rule: the powers of conducting
banking transactions andinvestment
transactions. For these two powers,
it is allowable to incorporate them by

through early detection
Health conditions like heart disease, stroke, cancer, abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) and many others usually show no symptoms
until it's too late. That's why it's important to detect them early.
OUR TESTS ARE ACCURATE as we adhere to a stringent protocol AND RELIABLE: results are read by a Board Certified radiologist.

This test visualizes build-up of plaque in the
carotid arteries that may lead to stroke.
ANEURYSM (AAA) .............................. $40
95% of ruptured AAAs result in death.
The majority of victims have no symptoms.
ABDOMINAL ULTRASOUND ................$95
Helps identify cancers/disease of the liver,
pancreas, kidneys, gallbladder and spleen.

THYROID ULTRASOUND ...................... $40
Scan to rule out cysts, nodules, goiters & tumors.

Ultrasound is used to detect poor circulation and
blockages in the legs.
Screening to view wall motion, valves, enlargements,
calcifications, stenosis, prolapse, blood clots, tumors & fluid
around the heart.
