Pasadena Commission Seats
By Cathy Salustri
On March 11, South Pasadena voters (precinct
214) will elect two commissioners. Incumbents Max
V. Elson and Arthur Penny have both declared
their candidacy for re-election. Challengers Harris
Blair and Robert F. Small have also qualified as
candidates for either of the two seats.
Unlike neighboring St. Pete Beach, Gulfport and
St. Petersburg, South Pasadena's commissioners do
not represent specific areas of the city. Instead, each
commissioner oversees a different city department,
although the department each commissioner
oversees may change from year to year.
South Pasadena has 3,561 registered voters and
5,046 residents. Last year 1,168 voters participated
in the election; of those votes, 1007 used an absentee
ballot to cast their vote before election day.

Farewell From St. Pete
Beach Commissioner
Marvin Shavian
As many of you
know my wife
and I recently
put our house on
the market. Oura
Realtor informed
us that a house
in our price range
would probably
take a minimum
of six months
to sell and very
likely longer. As it St. Pete Beach
turns out we had Commissioner
a contract on the Marvin Shavlan
house in 10 days.
Unfortunately, this means I must resign
myposition as commissioner effective the
date of closing (scheduled for January
15) because my wife and I have been
unable to find a suitable residence to
buy or rent in District Three or St. Pete
Beach, for that matter. Accordingly,
my last commission meeting will be on
Tuesday, January 14.
The city charter requires the commission
to appoint someone to fill my position for
the remainder of the term. If you would
like to be considered you will need to
submit a letter of interest to the city
manager by Friday, January 10. To
qualify you must have been a full-time
resident in District Three for the last 12
The city manager's email address is
I'm disappointed that I cannot serve
out the remainder of my term, I am
glad to see that one qualified candidate
has already expressed interest in the
position. My understanding is that
Ward Friszolowski, former St. Pete
Beach commissioner and mayor will
be submitting a letter of interest on
Monday, January 6.
I am confident the city commission
will select a very capable individual to
continue to represent the residents of
District Three and St. Pete Beach.

Thanks from
Operation Santa
The Gulfport Police on behalf
of Operation Santa would like to
thank all those who made Operation
Santa 2013 a success by making
donations. This year Operation
Santa helped put a smile on the faces
of 261 children in 96 families. Every
donation, whether large or small,
makes a difference to the children
in Gulfport who might not have had
much under the tree at Christmas.
This was only possible through the
generous outpouring donations of
toys and money from organizations,
businesses and individuals. Santa
and his elves would like to thank all
who contributed. And thanks to the
Gabber as always.

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


4 -*-4 A A b^

"46 ou could say my motto
Sis 'been there, done
-- that'," says Keith
Sanders, from Sanders Law,
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.
"MIost 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.

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 con-
cept 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.

"Inlaws, Outlaws, and
Other People (That
Should be Shot)"
The Gulfport Community Players
will be opening a comedy, written
by Steve Franco, entitled "Inlaws,
Outlaws, and Other People (That
Should Be Shot)" on January 9th at
the Catherine A. Hickman Theater.
This Theater is located at 26th Ave.
S. and Beach Blvd. The show will
run for three weeks, from January
9th through January 26th. This play
is being directed by Jim Cartwright
and produced by Eileen Navarro.
This holiday comedy is just the
play to see even after the holidays. It
takes place in Brooklyn, NY, 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

CitO WThYS?~ Have you got a
question for your
i ^ W tocity government?

Email your request to
By Cathy Salustri
City of Gulfport

Q: Why are residents charged a base fee for water usage? From reader
Susan Blankenship: "I wish the city would re-think the base fee for water
usage. I know I'd be much more responsible and conservative with my
consumption if I didn't have that whole 'I'm paying for it whether I use it
or not" mentality'."
A: We get this comment/question a lot, so we asked City Manager Jim
O'Reilly to explain the city's logic.
"The base charge/fee for water includes a fixed fee used for a combination
of stationary costs. The utilities fixed expenses exist even without water
consumption or usage, such as our costs for maintenance of water lines
and the personnel required to operate and maintain the utility system,
operation of the utility, meter reading, billing and customer service. This
cost is shared by all customers, so that the availability of water is constant.
This is sometimes referred to as a 'readiness to serve charge'.
"The base minimum charge also includes 2,000 gallons of water removal
of the minimum base charge would create an increased per gallon cost per
customer, to offset the overall costs of operating the utility system."

How to Handle On-
Board Emergencies
Boating is intended to be
challenging, but fun. Inevitably,
no matter how careful the skipper
and crew, emergencies will happen.
Each boater must be prepared to
protect the people and equipment
involved should an emergency arise.
The St. Petersburg Sail and Power
Squadron is presenting a two hour
seminar, "Emergencies on Board"
on Wednesday, January 15th from
7-9 p.m. to acquaint boaters with the
actions necessary to cope with the
most common difficulties. Available
to anyone 12 or older, it deals with
both preparing for and managing
emergencies like: accidentprevention;
emergency calls and signals; running

aground; man overboard; fire; loss of
power; medical conditions; steering
failure and getting lost. Gather your

A: The new logo, designed by St. Pete Beach resident Lorrie Bellinger for
less than $400, "is part of a branding effort for our department," according

ott+Ioroscope Guide

By Holiday Mathis
Drama, tension, excitement -- it
all builds toward the full Cancer
moon on Wednesday, Jan. 15. This
is the moon of mothers, so we will be
working on our issues with maternal
energy and our relationships with
women. Itwill be important to respect
the differences in the way men and
women operate. We'll be inclined to
confront problems between the sexes
when Venus and Mars form a tense
angle on the 16th.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19).
You already know quite a lot about
your home, but you'll learn more
about it if you go away and come
back. So even though your heart is
firmly planted at home, let your feet
wander to fulfill your dream of far-
off adventures so that later you'll
have stories to tell back at your own
dinner table.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18).
There's someone you'd like to meet.
You'll soon find this person through
your work with a volunteer project,
charity event or community venture.
If you're not connected with such
things yet, this is an excellent week
to heed your generous nature and
get involved.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20).
Relationships are often easy for you,
but when they're not, you are willing
to jump in, roll up your sleeves and
work. Maintenance is a natural part
of good relationships. The one you
love is worth the effort, and what
you have together is special. This
week you'll learn, grow, change,
take risks and take action.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). As
the first sign of the zodiac, you are
an expert at beginnings and are
very aware of how greetings set a
tone for an entire interaction. You'll
do important business this week,
and you'll make it right from the
start by dressing well, projecting
the appropriate body language and
carefully choosing your approach.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You're
in the mood to attack cherished
beliefs, debunk myths and bring
down the icons in your mind that

have held you back. The best way
is to spill what's in your brain onto
paper at the top of the week. Put
it away until Thursday, and then
look at it anew. At that time, the
falsehoods will pop out and beg to be
GEMINI (iI.ny 21-June 21). Past
events have shaken your confidence,
but you'll get it back by tending to
the little mannerisms that reinforce
your value. You won't apologize
unless it's really called for. You'll
accept what people offer you without
guilt. You'll exercise your freedom to
accept or decline invitations without
CANCER (June 22-July 22). You'll
be spotlighted in some way, and it's
only natural to be nervous about
this. As the entertainer George
Jessel once said, "The human brain
starts working the moment you are
born and never stops until you stand
up to speak in public." You can
counteract the brain's tendencies by
being over-prepared.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). There's
something about a relationship
that feels like a persistent itch you
can't reach. You'll have to direct
the other person or go on being
uncomfortable. Luckily, you're an
expert communicator, especially
at the top of the week. Your clear
instructions will lead to a sense of
cooperation and general well-being.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). The
reason you don't quest for new,
better and more personal property
is because you realize the truth
about ownership. Things may have
meaning, but you cannot construct
meaning out of things. Your story
comes first. Anything material is
merely a symbol of that story.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). One
reason to do what's scary is that
you can't earn people's trust without
taking a risk. People follow those
they trust. This week they'll trust you
when they see that you're not afraid
to handle what they themselves are
(perhaps secretly) quite fearful of.
You'll gain influence and status.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). It's

good to be responsible, but there's a
point at which responsibility turns
into control. You'll be among those
who don't like feeling controlled.
They want more responsibility. If
you step back and let them take it
without a fight, you'll have a more
balanced and cooperative existence.
21). You may not be aware of what
you're expecting from someone
until those expectations go unmet.
Disappointment leads to a better
understanding of reality. Ultimately,
it will be a positive experience that
inspires you to examine your needs
and wants and go where they are
likely to be fulfilled.
This Week's Birthdays: This year
you will often make efforts above
and beyond what is required of you,
because the No. 1 thing you require
of yourself this year is excellence.
Excellence doesn't happen by doing
what everyone else is doing. It is a
product of doing more and better.
The next seven weeks show you
developing a recently acquired
skill. You'll win a heart in February
through a combination of honesty
and imagination. April and July
bring family celebrations. Work
projects take off in May.

Man and Weather
old weather seems to have
followed us south. I wrote last
week of the uncomfortably,
for us, weather over the Christmas
holidays in Pittsburgh. Blowing
snow, cold and so forth. Snow's not
coming here (it has snowed here, by
the way), but cold is. Of course, that's
relative to what we expect here and
even at that cold and hot are both
relative to expectations or experience.
Differentials are what counts. A
20 or 30 degree drop or increase in
temperature is noticeable. So, we are
going to be cold for a couple of days.
Elsewhere in the country, there's
talk and even the reality of record
lows. That is, a record for the past
100 years which is a blink of an eye,
or less, in the world's weather history.
However, it makes good newspaper
copy and television entertainment
all sufficiently hyped for the scare
factor: opportunity for chasing people
indoors, canceling schools, meetings,
social events, but not football ( I
hope); or, opportunity to preach to the
know-nothings of today's culture who
don't know enough to come in from
the cold, or to put hats and gloves on
and so forth. Pundits and government
watchers can pontificate for a few
days and on-the-scene reporters can
bravely tell us stories of woe and
even heroism, and, of course tragedy.
This is all in the context of a modern
society in which the vast majority of
us are in no danger of truly suffering
It ain't like the old days and I don't
mean my old days. Read the accounts
of the settlers, rural farmers, or
explorers and trappers of the last
two or three centuries. Now those are
stories. In the meanwhile, this is all
very entertaining, even exciting, and,
as I wrote before, just a matter of
experiencing the relative differences
that affect our daily living. After that,
we're left with the long term effects.
And, that, at last, gets us to global
warming, or climate change.
Is it related? Of course, it is. It
is weather which is constant and

constantly changing and adapting.
But, does it have anything to do with
warming or cooling? Not really. It's
just a snapshot. Even one or two
snapshots. This particular snapshot
appears to be affecting North
America and places like Murmansk,
Russia. Top of the world stuff. Europe
and Asia, at least the central and
southern parts aren't experiencing
excessive cold periods. Scotland has
rain and floods.
Global warming acclaimers suggest
it is part of the extreme patterns
they have been predicting (like
non-existent hurricanes); deniers
claim this is the start of a new ice
age. Consensus science does seem
a bit confused these days. I've had
a hard time pinning down what the
global temperatures really are: flat
for 10 or more years, still climbing
gradually, or slightly falling. Arctic
ice has thinned, but is it still
thinning? Antarctica ice appears to
be thickening, at least enough to trap
a few ships.
I don't buy many of the arguments
on either of the two sides believing
instead that weather is weather
and that it changes and does affect
various parts of the globe from time to
time (ice ages and warming periods).
Science changes, too. Models are
models garbage in, garbage out.
Scientific studies are always subject
to hypothesis driven research that
get the rests we search for. This is
addressed in a book I am reading
about the effects of diet on health.
The author, a science writer, points
out: "it (is) effectively impossible to
challenge the underlying science once
it is invoked to defend a particular
hypothesis, one that is said to benefit
the public health....As the evidence
accumulates, it may cease to support
the hypothesis, but altering the
conventional wisdom by then can be
exceedingly difficult." He goes on for
two full pages to explore that idea.
The same warning goes for climate
At any rate, I'm not very concerned
about warming trends. They are better
than cooling trends. We might worry

about high water, but think about
high ice. Warmer climates create more
opportunity for agriculture, and a
more hospitable climate overall than
cold. Moreover, I believe that Earth,
as the human body, tries to stay in
balance when afflicted with foreign,
outside influences in a process called
homeostasis. Bad things can happen,
but it takes a long time. The human
body lasts a maximum of 100 years
or so. The Earth has been around
for 4 billion years or so according to
the latest scientific measurements.
Internally and externally it is a
dynamic ball changing temperature
and shape and pimpling up with all
sorts disfiguring facets. It takes a
long time, but will do what it does
regardless of what we do to it.
We are largely insignificant in that
relationship. As one writer put it,
through a cockroach character called
Archy: "man thinks he amounts to a
great deal, but to a flea or mosquito
he is merely something good to eat."

Bogie Alumni Signs Pro
Basketball Contract
Myron Dempsey, Boca Ciega High
School alumni, has signed his first
professional basketball contract to
play in Europe. He is playing in the
Top League in Bulgaria, a league in
which two of the clubs, Levski Sofia
and Balkan both play in the Balkan
league, one club Lukoil Academic
plays in Eurocup, and one club, Rilski
plays in Eurochallenge.
Myron signed the contract early
Monday morning and will be leaving
for Bulgaria Tuesday in time to pass
physical in the hopes that he will
suit up for their game on January
llth vs. Tundja Yambol.
Gilad Berkowitz, President of
BCV, says MI ',in is a very young
gifted athlete, with an unlimited

250 58th Street N.

ceiling and we are very happy for
him. Although the club has been
banged up, I think that the addition
of Myron will really help in putting
a string of wins together to help
bolster their position in league play.
Particularly because Myron has the
versatility to play anywhere from
the 2-4, and he even played the 5 in
Division. I think he will mesh well
with Dominique Ferguson and some
of the other talented players that the
GM has assembled."

From the Desk of

Sheriff Bob Gualtie

CIT Training

Pinellas County Sheriffs Deputies
respond to hundreds of thousands of
calls for service each year. In order
to ensure the safety of the citizens
of Pinellas County, as well as their
own safety, Sheriffs deputies are put
through various aspects of training
yearly. One form of training is how
to respond to calls and interact with
individuals that are dealing with
emotional or mental health issues.
In 2012, an average of six people per
day were involuntarily committed for
mental health examination (Baker
Act) by Pinellas County Deputies.
These citizens have unique needs
and it is important that Sheriffs
deputies understand how to deal with
these needs in a variety of different
One valuable form of training
available to Sheriffs deputies is
the Crisis Intervention Team (CIT)
training program. The CIT program
allows deputies to get hands on
training to assist these citizens in
their time of need. The Pinellas
County Sheriffs Office has played a
leadership role in the county's Crisis
Intervention Team (CIT) program
for nearly 15 years. Through a
community partnership of local law
enforcement officers, mental health
professionals and citizen advocates,
the CIT "team" was formed. To
date, over 1,300 Sheriffs deputies,
police officers and state troopers
have completed the CIT program in
Pinellas County.
The program is a 40-hour course
with a curriculum focused around
safety, knowledge, procedures and
techniques to help calm and assess

individuals with mental illness in
a crisis. Throughout the week long
program, law enforcement personnel
are taught the signs and symptoms
of mental illness, mental health
medications and their side effects
and appropriate criteria for the
Baker Act. These subjects are taught
by professional volunteers from
the mental health community and
allow the class to hear family and
consumer perspectives, participate
in role-playing scenarios and learn
about issues related to homelessness,
Alzheimer's, suicide and officer
CIT training is held at no cost to
tax payers or to any participating
law enforcement organizations.
This training is made possible
by community organizations and
volunteers who take their own time to
ensure local law enforcement officers
have the training they need to do
their job efficiently. CIT training is
held twice a year, once in the fall and
once in the spring. There are also
periodic refresher courses for those
deputies that would like to learn
more on a certain topic. Deputies that
have completed the training, return
to work with a better understanding
of the mental health community.
Many have said the training has
given them a new perspective on how
to handle those having an emotional
crisis. They have also shown they are
able to use their new skills on more
than just mental health related calls.
This training, along with many other
crucial forms of training, are helping
our deputies lead the way to a safer

Auto 101 For Women-
Preventive Maintenance
Wouldn't it be great to ask questions
and get answers about maintenance,
engine components, auto repairs
and the skinny on the industry: by
speaking to a fellow fem (and not
made to feel embarrassed)?
This introduction class can go as
far and in depth as you're interested,
to know your car and the industry
better. Wouldn't it be great if you
could go back in time to the moment
just before you neglected a small
vehicle issue that left you stranded?
Take it from me; having worked at
the family auto business and my
own misadventures.., when it comes
to your all important transportation,
ignorance is not bliss.
Just about everyone has a sad or
scary story about a disreputable
repair shop. It's harder to get over
on an educated person who has a
network of likeminded individuals
looking out for each other. Ever heard
of the phrase "knowledge is power"?
Demonstrations would be limited,
but can be performed after class.
The first 4-week session will start
Wednesday, February 5th from 6:15-
7:15 p.m. Cost is $10 per class or $30
per session. For more information

The Cold Does Not Stop ArtWalk

From the Desk of Gulfport Police Chief Robert Vincent

I started working for the
Gulfport Police Department
20 years ago. Almost 20
years before that, my father
used to bring me down to the
beach on the weekends so I
could climb on the monkey
bars at the playground. In
that nearly 40 years,
a lot has changed
in this town, most
of it for the better.
In other areas, '
progress seems a bit ;
slow. Look at 49th
Four lanes of
asphalt, no more
than 100 feet wide,
separate Gulfport
from the Greater ':l
Childs Park Area v
(GCPA) of St.
Petersburg, which
includes all of
the Childs Park
neighborhood as well
as portions of three
others (Oak Park,

Twin Brooks, and
Perry Bayview). As long as
I can remember, this border
road has not only served as
a political boundary; it has
represented a divide between
two very different cultures.
Obviously, demographic
variances contribute to this
image. Gulfport is and has
historicallybeen comprisedof
a majority white population,
while the GCPA is and
has been predominantly
African-American. So 49th
Street separates a white
neighborhood from a black

neighborhood, but there's
much more to the picture
than racial differences.
Let's take a look at some
numbers that actually
matter. Census tracts 208.00
and 201.01 encompass the St.
Petersburg neighborhoods
directly east of Gulfport-
essentially the GCPA.
Combined, these two tracts
have a population and land
area that is similar to that
of Gulfport. The overall
crime rate, however, is more
than twice that of our town,
and the violent crime rate
is over five times higher
than Gulfport's (see the
chart). These are rates that
far exceed the averages for
the city of St. Petersburg,
Pinellas County, and the
state of Florida. There is
absolutely no question that
the GCPA is a high-crime

the indirect impacts of that
crime on a daily basis. This
is why I repeatedly make the
claim that we in Gulfport do
not have a crime problem
on 49th Street; we have
a problem resulting from
the perception of the crime
occurring next door.
The question: how much can
we do about it? I think our
officers do an outstanding job
considering the mere ribbon
of pavement between us and
the aforementioned high-
crime neighborhood. We do
what we do the way we do
it because our constituents
demand it. What we all
have to realize and accept,
however, is that what
happens across the street is
not up to us. The people who
live in the GCPA are the ones
who get to decide how their
neighborhood is policed.

Crim e C:-w:. 1, : *:..

2 G,4'p11(T d liI,

Table 1-UCR (Uniform Crime Rate) Part 1 Crimes, City of
Gulfport vs. Census Tracts 208.00 and 201.01 combined

neighborhood; let's just call
that a given.
The problem is, all of this
crime is literally happening
right across the street. We
work hard and do a great job
of keeping crime rates low
within Gulfport's municipal
borders, but that's not much
consolation to those who
have to live and work on that
particular border. While
they may not be immediate
victims of actual crimes,
Gulfport residents who live
near the GCPA experience

They are the ones who set
the enforcement priorities
and dictate them to their
representatives. We have
no more right to tell them to
tighten things up than they
have to ask us to lighten up
(believe me, they've asked).
The bottom line is this: any
change to the crime rate in
the GCPA must be driven by
those who live there. If they
don't want things to change,
then we in Gulfport will not
have much of an impact.
Please don't get the

impression that St.
Petersburg is ignoring this
area. I want to point out
that there have been some
pretty impressive reductions
in the GCPA crime rate
since the implementation
of a strategic planning
initiative under Mayor
Baker's administration in
2007. Overall crime has
dropped 34% in this area
over the past four years,
while it has essentially
remained static in Gulfport.
While this is movement in
the right direction, I intend
work to encourage the new
mayor and new police chief
to take more proactive steps
to further reduce violent
crime in this area. When our
residents are affected, our
voice needs to be heard.

For our part, Gulfport has
undertaken a few
projects andprograms
to help improve the
perception as well.
New LED street
lighting will be
installed in January,
making the roadway
more visible at night.
We've improved
the signage at our
office on 49th Street,
making if more clear
that it is home to the
office of an actual
police officer, and
we're in the process
of installing high-
visibility surveillance
cameras on that
building as well. We
also added a full-time
officer to handle recruiting
and screening, which frees
up our Community Resource
Officer, Zach Mills, to spend
more of his time focusing
on policing the 49th Street
Of course, we won't be able
to measure the effect of any of
these changes until this time
next year. In the meantime,
I'll be looking forward to
some positive changes in
both perception and reality.
Happy New Year everyone!

0111 f. r--By Cathy Salustrit

Thank You,
Mr. President
hank you, Mr. President.
I know you won't read this,
and I know that a lot of entitled
folk are extremely dissatisfied with
your healthcare reform, but still,
thank you.
On New Year's Eve I paid my health
insurance bill. I wanted to cry. Now,
paying bills usually makes me want
to cry, but this time was different.
You see, I wanted to cry because
for the first time since I turned 18,
I didn't have to worry about getting
sick. That's a big deal for someone
like me.
Just before my 18th birthday I found
a lump under my arm, which my
doctor misdiagnosed as mono. The
misdiagnosis became apparent when
I started bruising like an overripe
peach for no apparent reason. The
testing started. Fortunately, my
mom had great health insurance
through her employer, so my doctor,
myhematologist, myrheumatologist,
and a cadre of other ologists were
mostly covered by insurance. So was
the bone marrow sample they took
from my sternum (not as much fun
as it sounds, by the way).
Two years later I started sleeping a
lot, and not just "I'm away at college
and am not eating right" a lot. I'm
talking about 17 hour stretches
where my suitemates couldn't rouse
me. Doctors realized I had almost
no platelets in my blood, which
apparently are necessary. Long story
short, I received gammaglobulin
infusions to up my platelets to
the point where my doctors were
convinced I wouldn't spontaneously
hemorrhage and die because, yeah,
that can happen.
And then I didn't have health
insurance. I was off my parents'
policy and not at a full time job
because I had a degree in radio and
television broadcasting and that's
not really an industry one enters
for the great benefits. So I bought

my own policy. For $800 a month.
Which meant I ate a lot of dinners at
my mom and dad's house and used a
lot of coupons and didn't have a lot
of things. I had to have insurance
because even once day without it
meant none of my blood-related
illnesses would be covered, because
they were a pre-existing condition.
Long story short, Mr. President, I
ended up selling shoes at Dillard's
because they offered health
insurance. I have a degree from Shoe
University and everything. And
that's when I had more ridiculously
expensive gammaglobulin infusions
(something like $8,000 per day, and
I had five days) to up my platelets
enough that they could operate and
remove my spleen.
So far, that's worked. I'm in
remission and have been long
enough now that I don't think
about it anymore, except when I
paid my health insurance bill. See,
I was paying almost $100 a month
for a crappy policy that covered
catastrophic illnesses only. Your

new plan would have allowed me to
keep that insurance, but with your
tax credit I can have real insurance
for $68 a month. I can go to the
doctor now. I don't rely on Bayfront
walk-in clinics and Walgreens Take
Care clinics as my primary source of
If my blood disorder rears its ugly
head again, which it has a 20%
chance of doing, I'm covered now,
and although it's a preexisting
condition, my insurer can't refuse to
treat me.
When I first started freelancing, I
had to choose between things like
paying the power bill and going for
my annual well woman exam. It was
a lot of roulette with my body, and a
very foolish but also very necessary
thing to do. Fortunately, I'm in a
better place now, financially, and
I no longer have to choose between
those things; going to the doctor
no longer means peanut butter
and crackers for a week. But there
are more people like that younger
me, with weird rare disorders that
threaten their lives and no way to
pay for the treatment they need.
Or rather, they were. So thank you,
Mr. President.

You & THE
LAW ",

By Robert J. Myers, Esq.
How to Make Sure that
Decisions will be Made
in your Best Interest
In making decisions about potential
sources of funding for health care, you
should consider certain "protective
services." These become important
if you ever become unable to handle
your own affairs, due to physical or
mental incapacity. Unless proper
legal action is taken in advance, your

family may be unable to act on your
behalf should the need arise.
Joint ownership is often used to give
legal authority to another person. For
example, you might simply add your
daughter's name to your account,
thinking you've solved various estate
and financial planning problems,
such as avoiding probate or ensuring
you will be taken care of.
But joint ownership may not solve
some problems, and could even create
others. First, the joint owner may be
able to withdraw 100% of the assets
held in joint name. Second, both
joint owners' signatures are usually
required anyway to sell or liquidate
assets. In addition, your assets may
become subject to claims by your
children's creditors.

Dr. Edward Foley, D.C.

One strategy you should consider
is establishing a revocable living
trust, which would hold title to your
assets. Such a trust not only offers
estate planning advantages, such as
avoiding probate, but also ensures
that a trustee would handle your
financial affairs in the event of your
But your financial situation is not
the only thing to consider in the event
of incapacity. You may need someone
else to step in and make personal
decisions regarding your health care
or the maintenance of property you
own. In addition, a trust may not
be appropriate, depending on the
amount of assets you own.
Since joint ownership is obviously
not the ideal solution and trust may
not be for everyone, are there other
ways to plan for the possibility of
you incapacity? Generally, there are
three other ways you can give legal
authority to another person:
Durable power of attorney
Of these three, the most effective is
a durable power of attorney. In our
next article, we will take a look at
how these legal transfers of control
and decision-making work and

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.

MAYTHE SACRED Heart of Jesus be adored,
glorified, loved, and preserved throughout the
world. Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, pray for us.
Blessed Mother, pray for us. St. Jude, worker
of miracles, pray for us. Say this prayer for ni-
net days, nine times a day. Then publish this
prayer. Thank You, Jesus.
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.B.
