Plane "Docks" at Gulfport Marina

Photo by Kurt Zuelsdort
Boaters at the Gulfport Municipal Marina Saturday afternoon saw a different sort of vessel
land at the boat ramp: a Cessna 152 plane.
The plane, owned and piloted by Tom Beaman, a Clearwater D.O., was a 1966 Cessna 150,
tail number N8672G. Dr. Beaman lives in the Feather Sound area; he landed the plane in
Boca Ciega Bay last Friday, when the Cessna's engine quit.
He escaped with minor cuts, but the plane went underwater in minutes. Saturday afternoon
a small crowd watched a boat lead the plane, floated with air bladders, back to the boat ramp
at the Gulfport Municipal Marina.
The Gabber has no word on whether the plane paid the five dollar ramp fee.

Players, from front page
during an annual Christmas dinner
of the Douglas family. As the family
is preparing for the annual invasion
of their eccentric relatives, there's a
knock on the door. Thinking this is
just some more of their slightly weird
relatives, they open the door. But,
instead of more relatives, they come
face to face with two guys who have
just robbed a neighborhood liquor
store and are looking for a place to
hide out until the coast is clear. These
armed(?) robbers take the family
hostage, or at least it seems that way
at first! More quirky relatives soon
arrive to join the fracas and are also
taken hostage by these "desperate"
That's when the real fun begins!
With smart-mouthed teenagers, nosy
neighbors, and the constant bickering
among the adult relatives, one begins

to wonder exactly who really has
been taken hostage! This play is
a non-stop, laugh-a-minute, comic
gem that ends up showing everyone
the true meaning of Christmas and
provides great entertainment for the
entire family.
Tickets are on sale now for just $15
and you can get them at the Gulfport
Beach Bazaar, the Gulfport Chamber
of Commerce, the Gulfport Casino,
the Couture'd Resale Boutique, at the
door just before the performances, or
by calling them at 727-322-0316 for
will-call tickets. Curtain times for
Thursday, Friday and Saturday are
8p.m. and 2 p.m. for Sunday.
Join your friends and the Players
for yet another great live theater
presentation at the Hickman Theater.

Lincoln Cemetery
Dear Editor: Gulfport has a gem
of history within its city limits, and
sadly it is neglected and ignored.
We are fortunate to have Lincoln
Cemetery in our beautiful city, a
cemetery that is the resting spot
of Civil War soldiers, Civil Rights
leaders, educators, developers and
every day people like you and me.
I walk this cemetery three times a
week, sadly I have noticed that there
are no markers denoting that there is
a veteran in that grave. I am hoping
that a local VFW, American Legion
or a young man contemplating what
to do for an Eagle Scout project

might consider placing markers on
the graves of these veterans.
There are different markers for
different wars, one of the Civil War
soldiers also fought in the Spanish
American War, he is deserving of two
markers. I wonder how many folks
are aware of this fact?
Letushonor these men for their brave
and thankless job, in my opinion, it is
the least that we can do for them and
their families/descendants.
The Lincoln Cemetery is a treasure
trove of names and connections within
the African American community. I
hope this treasure does not slip away
from our grasp.

I would like to introduce myself. My
| name is Paul Ray and I am running for
t r Gulfport City Council from Ward III.
I have been a resident of Gulfport for over
SIt four years, first visiting Gulfport 14 years
ago with my partner. I knew then and
there that I wanted to live here and
become part of the artistic, eclectic and
I accepting community. I found the
community reminiscent of the old Cape
i9,i 9Cod towns where I grew up. As a home
owner in Gulfport with my partner of 14
--._N years, I want to give back to the commu-
,.. nity utilizing the experiences I have
S\obtained in life and through manage-
ment and budgeting as the owner of a
software consulting firm and a restaurant/internet cafe.
My business skills are coupled with experience in fundraising and organizing for various
groups in San Francisco as well as doing stand up comedy. I believe my experience and
skills would be a good addition to the Gulfport City Council in budget management,
problem solving, and keeping an open and responsive government.
I wanted to introduce myself as well seek both volunteers and supporters.
Please contact me through or 727-827-2798.

Art Comes to 49th Street

By Cathy Salustri

As part of a contest for
artists, the three winning
submissions will grace
the Gulfport Square
shopping plaza at the
edge of Gulfport. Keith
Stillwagon's mural will
face Gulfport Boulevard
at the plaza's east end;
Michael Eismont and the
Pach/Schork interactive
murals will face west.

The long-awaited community art project will soon take shape at Gulfport
Square, the shopping plaza at the southwest corner of Gulfport Boulevard
and 49th Street. Banners emblazoned with the words "Community Art Project
Coming Soon" have teased the locals for some time.
"This has been a year in the process," Michelle Kotewa, the owner of the
Liberty Tax franchise in Gulfport Square, says. Her office has the six art
submissions, including the three winners, on display.
After struggling to garner submissions, Kotewa told the Gabber, the steering
committee extended the deadline until November 20. Ultimately, the committee
- comprised of Kotewa, Phil Reed and Andrea Royce selected three winning
Internationally known muralist Keith Stillawagon, painter Michael Eismont,
and mixed-media artists Owen Pach and Jonathan Schork will provide three
murals that will adorn Gulfport Square. Pach and Schork will jointly create a
movable mural while Eismont and Stillwagon will paint their murals.
"We thought it would be a good spot to have murals depicting our town,"
Kotewa said.
The project will cost about $3,300, although Kotewa says the steering
committee is "still trying to get exact figures." So49, the South 49th Street
business association (of which Royce and Kotewa are officers and Reed's wife
is president), contributed money towards the murals.
Kotewa praised Gulfport Square owner Jim DeFoe for his contribution of
space, for resurfacing the face of the building, and for improvements to the
look of the plaza.
"We're trying very hard to help the community and stimulate what we're
doing here," Kotewa said. "The improvements bring pride to the community,
and we're trying to enhance that."
DeFoe says the murals will draw focus to the 49th Street area of town.
"There is some opportunity here," he said.

ottoIoroscope Guide

By Holiday Mathis
With both Venus and Jupiter
retrograde, we'll be taking a trip
down memory lane to determine who
has been influential in our lives and
why. It's an excellent time to pick up
the phone and let your distant loved
ones know what they mean to you.
On Tuesday, a grand water trine
involving Jupiter, Saturn and the
Pisces moon will be like a magical
cosmic dandelion puff in the dead of
winter. Make a wish and blow.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19).
You'll be in an ambitious mood
all week. The results you desire
are achievable, or so you've heard,
though you don't personally know
anyone who has done it yet. Good
news: You don't have to see it first to
believe it. In fact, your belief will be
what allows you to see it. Just have
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). So
what if you're a bit outside of the
norm this week? Good stories aren't
born from reasonable people doing
sensible things. For better or worse,
noteworthy events are products of
passionate, unexpected behavior. So
if you're less controlled than you'd
like to be, cut yourself a break. At
least you're entertaining.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You
know what you want, and you ask for
it, but not everyone can state a desire
with such certainty. That doesn't
mean the desire doesn't exist; they
just can't express it for some reason.
These are the people you'll help this
week. Your example will embolden
them. Your sensitivity will open
them up.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). It's
never a dull moment when you're
the leader. You'll have to explain a
very simple concept to someone you
thought would have understood it by
now. Humility will be key. The best
teachers never talk down to their
students; rather, they invest full
attention into doing what it takes to
help their students learn.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). While
ice cream and pie may be easy to like,
typically acquired tastes, such as
coffee and wine, have a bitterness to

them. You are acquiring a tolerance
for a certain slightly embittered
individual, and you may even like
this person's contrasting views. They
help you to better appreciate life's
GEMINI (iI.nv 21-June 21). If you
have more time on your hands than
you have money in your pocket,
consider yourself very lucky. This
is exactly the condition that breeds
great things. Get focused and make it
count. If you have more money than
time, consider delegating to clear
up some much-needed room in your
schedule for thinking.
CANCER (June 22-July 22).
According to the rules of feng shui,
broken things shouldn't be kept
around in a state of limbo unless you
would like to perpetuate the notion
that there's something wrong with
your life. Broken things need to be
tossed, fixed or repurposed. Repair
your luck by taking time out of your
week to repair your stuff.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Goodfortune
follows interactions that are brief
and to the point this week. Verbal
economy takes confidence, and you
definitely have that. You don't need
everyone's attention on you for as
long as possible; you just want people
to know what they need to know in
order to have the best and safest
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). If anyone
accuses you of playing a game of
"hot" and "cold," they are mistaken.
You'll feel outgoing and fun as long
as people maintain a respectable
distance physically and emotionally.
But if they cross the lines of personal
space or good taste, you'll retreat to a
more introverted way of dealing with
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). The
things on your mind this week have
to do with home, family, housemates,
real estate and generally taking
charge of your territory. The more
control you have over your domestic
space the better you feel outside of it.
The latter part of the week brings a
perspective shift that will help you
make more money.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21).

Excitement, news and ideas all swirl
around you looking for somewhere to
land, but you won't let any of it settle
in, because your purpose is clear to
you. Until your work is done, you'll
consider everything else -- even the
enticing and seemingly wonderful
things -- a distraction.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21).
You'll plot your next move carefully,
sensing that you're at a critical
juncture. Right or wrong isn't a fixed
judgment here, but youwon'tbe happy
if you're not acting in accordance with
your beliefs. Another person could
make the move you think is "wrong"
and be fine with it, but that doesn't
matter. You're you.
This Week's Birthdays: You're
on trend at the start of your year
and will use technology to achieve
a higher level of organization and
thus improve your timing. A deal
in January helps your personal life
because you have more time to spend
with your favorite people. February
features work-related travel, and
March brings a chance to update
your home. In April, you'll apply
some of that makeover energy to
daily habits. When you get stuck on
a June project, walk away and come
back when Mercury goes direct on
July 1.

be the answer to a fresh and new start in life, now is the
time to find out. Call us for a free consultation and see the
" solutions for your future.." 727-209-0744
Attorney Keith Sanders, Handles
Foreclosure Defense and Bankruptcies
with Experience and Sensitivity

"rT ou could say my
Smotto 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

"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.

Best Wishes For a
Wonderful Holiday Season

W"W.4 4 "A A A &b

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.

Think Before You Drink
If your heart beats faster at the
thought of quaffing a cold can
of energy drink (think Red Bull,
Monster, Rockstar and their ilk),
there may be something wrong with
you that is more worrisome than your
sense of taste.

Almost nobody drinks these
hugely popular concoctions for their
sublime flavor. People consume
them almost entirely for the much-
touted neurological jolt derived from
an overabundance of caffeine (as
much as three times more than in a
comparable serving of coffee or soda)
and its individual ingredients -- B
vitamins, the amino acid taurine and

Judging from sales -- $12.5 billion in
2012 in the U.S. alone -- commercial
energy drinks deliver their promised
punch ... and worse.
A report presented this week at
the Radiological Society of North
America found that energy drinks
appear to adversely alter heart
function. Specifically, they can cause
rapid heart rate, palpitations, a blood
pressure spike and possibly, seizures
or death.
If that's not enough of an eye
opener, consider this statistic from
the Substance Abuse and Mental
Health Services Administration:
Each year, almost 21,000 energy
drink consumers find themselves
in hospital emergency rooms being
treated for unwanted side effects
from the beverages.

pSomethi't op my mihd
A b o By Bill Northrop

This Isn't Florida
It is the day after Christmas. I am
walking to my car with a snow shovel
in my bare and unbelievably cold
hands. No heavy lifting, just a snow
plow like pushing of the shovel does
it. Last night's "lake-effect" snow
dropped a light, two inch lawyer
of snow over the area just north of
Pittsburgh. While temperatures
dropped to the low teens during the
night, it is now probably in the high
teens with a light north-westerly
All in all not as bad as it could be,
but not exactly what the weather
man predicted. So far, in the past few
days, predictions haven't matched
the reality. That's partly due to the
aforementioned lake effect, the cold
winds blowing across the warmer
water of Lake Erie 150 miles to the
north. That and the hilly terrain,
numerous rivers, mountain effect
from the Allegheny mountains an
hours drive east, make accurate
sectional predictions difficult.
So much for defense of the
weathermen/women. In the
meanwhile, my son and I are clearing
the snow from the sidewalks and
driveway. I make sure he does most
of the work. I'm fortunate that Bob

and his family live on a fairly level
piece of ground in the midst of rolling
terrain. The job doesn't take long
and clearing off the car requires a
minimal sweeping off and almost no
need of real scraping. I'm not even
puffing as I did the day before after a
brisk mile-long hike seemingly mostly
uphill. That the car also works is also
The roads are also cleared nicely
which is our reward for having been
wakened twice in the early morning
by the scrapping noise of the snow
plow on the road. It's a welcome, if
annoying, noise for snow battered
northerners. It means we'll be mobile
at least most of the day. Not that it
snows all the time. Pittsburgh is a
relatively moderate climate. In fact,
temperatures may go up into the mid-
40s by the end of the week. However,
I do recall winters on the late 70s and
early 80s when temperatures ranged
from minus 15 to 30 degrees for an

entire month. The Ohio River froze
For now this is a warmer spell
however unbalanced it seems against
our now used-to central Florida
temperatures. Our thermostats don't
adjust fast enough. However, by the
time this is read (hopefully), we'll be
back in those Florida temperatures
which we hope will be unseasonably
warm. That means we have another
several days wearing heavy jackets,
and nice wooly hats. It's a nice change
and a fun challenge (my wife doesn't
agree) if viewed from the perspective
that it is limited. It does make us
realize why we chose to move south.
On the other hand, because we are
gathering with a large portion of
our children and grandchildren, and
great-grandchild coming together
in Pennsylvania from Florida,
Tennessee, North Carolina and
Maryland, place and weather are
relatively unimportant. Cold hands,
noses, feet, and petty inconveniences
are inconsequential in the context of
and contrast with joining with family
in a joyous holiday season.

By Robert J. Myers, Esq.
How is your Legal
Health? (Part III)
This Article is Part III in our series
of articles on your legal health.
During your legal checkup, a review
of your marital status may uncover

certain aspects of the marriage which
you may wish to address. For exam-
ple, couples may desire to enter into
prenuptial agreements or separation
agreements to help avoid disputes in
the event of a divorce.
Prenuptial agreements or separa-
tion agreements can address prop-
erty rights, child support, child cus-
tody and visitation rights you may
have regarding your children. These
agreements can be finalized before
or during your marriage. Unmarried
couples who are living together may
desire to enter into an agreement
to specify expected rights and re-

sponsibilities which are similar to a
prenuptial or separation agreement.
Prenuptial and separation agree-
ments can additionally specify how
to value assets which were jointly
obtained such as a home, retirement
plans and investments.
Accidents can occur in your automo-
bile, at home or at your workplace.
As a result, you may be entitled to
compensation from someone who
caused or contributed to your injury.
Compensation for personal injuries
may include lost income, reimburse-
ment of medical expenses, money for
disabilities as a result of the accident
and pain and suffering which you en-
dured during a recovery period. Many
times, compensation is paid through
an insurance company which has
coverage for those who contributed to
your accidental injury.
Legal problems may arise in the
workplace. Federal laws protect em-
ployees against discrimination by
employers. However, there are spe-
cific procedures which must be fol-
lowed and time restrictions on the
filing of a claim or lawsuit.
The purchase or sale of a home
probably is one of the largest invest-
ment decisions you will make in your
lifetime. As a result, it is important
to avoid unfavorable contract provi-
sions in your sales agreement. Also,
the real estate agent's listing con-
tract should be carefully reviewed
so that you understand what your
rights and obligations are under the
agreement. If you are buying or sell-
ing a home, a review of all documents
by an attorney may save you time,
money and aggravation so that your
interests are protected and the sale
can be completed.

An Open Invitation to
Mayor Rick Kriseman
ayor Kriseman,
congratulations. I was
pleasedto see you beat a man
who served no functional purpose, as
far as I could tell. I have higher hopes
for you. This is based, I should note,
primarily on you NOT being either
of the two former mayors. That's not
exactly setting the bar very high, sir.
This is: Fix life on the south side.
That may sound odd, coming from
someone who moved to Gulfport
from St. Pete Beach, but remember,
I moved to St. Pete Beach from
the 'burg. Do you know why I left,
Mayor? Because I was naive, and I
bought a home in Bartlett Park on
the promises of former-former mayor
Rick Baker's administration that
it wasn't that bad, really, and they
were making changes.
Change, I'd like to note, came in
the form of a now-closed Sweetbay
and not much else. I am not here to
moan about my bad choices, because
they were just that: mine. I trusted
an elected official, I did my part, took
a chance on a "bad" neighborhood,
called the cops when I saw illegal
activity, and, when I finally grew
scared enough aided in no small
measure by a fine police officer who
told me flat-out "We can't keep you
safe here" I left. St. Petersburg
failed me. I wanted to live where little
girls don't die in drive-by shootings.
I wanted to come home after work
and not find the SWAT team using
a battering ram to get into a drug
house three doors down. I wanted to
not feel afraid anymore.

Gabber January 2 -January 8, 2014

Of course, not everyone can just
leave. I walked away from a home
I loved in a neighborhood that
permanently altered my world view
and I'll pay in more ways than one for
a long time. But I am alive, happy,
and living in a town where I can call
the cops because someone is illegally
distributing handbills and they show
up immediately.
But what about the people who
can't or don't leave? They need big
action and they need it from you.
St. Petersburg's leadership has
consistently denied a problem in the
south side and, in doing so, denied
these families the quality of life found
in every other corner of the city.
City advisors may talk about
programs and opportunities and
crime rates until you start to believe
hey, I'd live in Childs Park, it sounds
awesome. And it is; such a shame
the south side residents don't realize
how great they have it, what with all
the drug deals and crime. Then your
police chief may cite call logs and
tell you not that many people call, so
things must be fine. Or he may talk
to you about "policing to community
standards" and how the quality of life
in Childs, Jordan, Bartlett and Parks
(to name a few) is acceptable.
If he does that, give him a choice:
quit your job or live in Childs Park
for the duration of his tenure with the
city. Because I can tell you, having
lived it for a just a few years, there
is nothing about life in the south
side these residents find acceptable.
Anyone who spent one night there
knows this. The apparent apathy
isn't apathy at all: it's fear mixed
with heart-rending hopelessness.
Yes, these residents should call the
police every time they see something.
They don't. Why? Well, I don't know
for sure, but I wonder if it's because
many of these residents remember
when it was acceptable to hang people
just for being black in the wrong part
of town and the police didn't do a
damn thing. A lot of these people are
scared of the police. And, as if that
isn't enough, retribution for calling
is another problem. It happened to

me in Bartlett Park. Others don't
call because and I heard this a lot
- "Why bother? Nothing changes."
So if you're not scared of the police
or your neighbors and haven't yet
surrendered to the soul-sucking
despondency that comes with being
a poor black person in the 'burg's
south side, you call the cops. You,
and about seven other people. I'm not
shocked if calls for service are low;
I'm more shocked anyone ever calls.
That doesn't mean the community
finds things to their liking. It means
you, sir, have a scared and dejected
population, and not an insignificant
one at that.
We can say it's poverty or a choice,
but St. Petersburg has made choices,
too: not to replace broken alley trash
cans that don't do their job, not to
maintain right of ways, not to fix
potholes, not to, basically, do a damn
thing to convince the city's poor black
people that anyone thinks they're
worth a damn. St. Petersburg may
have "programs" but on a day-to-day
basis? Your city has treated these
men and women like trash. Their sin?
They've allowed it, because really,
what choice do they have? They have
been born into this legacy of poverty
and the segregation it maintains.
Your inaction will damn them just as
surely as this has.
I'll be honest: if you succeed in
making life better in the south side
- not just midtown, let's be clear,
I'm talking about every poor black
neighborhood that suffered first at
the hands of malice and then at the
altar of political apathy -it improves
life for us in Gulfport, too. So that's
part of my agenda. But it's just as
much this: no one should have to
live the way some of your residents
do. I don't have the answers. My job
isn't to have the answers. My job is to
expose problems; your job is to create
I sense you may not realize how
disheartening life in the south side
can be, so I extend a very public
invitation: let's go for a bike ride.
Not a car ride, not a tour, a bike ride,
just you and me. No entourage, no
mayoral procession. Let's just take a
Let's go see your city, Mayor.
