Gulfport detectives have yet to find the next of kin of a dead man found
just inside Gulfport city limits Monday morning. Detective Hanh Pham
told the Gabber that a teenage boy who went behind an assumed
vacant home at 4922 Newton Avenue South found a 58-year-old dead
black man. The man, Detective Pham told the Gabber, "appears to be
homeless." Police say the preliminary investigation uncovered no signs
of foul play.

Six Tons of Trash Collected
G From mattresses to doors,
the second quarterly "Junk
in a Trunk" event, held
bl this past Saturday at the
49th Street Neighborhood
SCenter, sent almost six tons
of junk 11,820 pounds
to the county's waste-to-
energy facility. Gulfport
Neighbors organized the
event; the City of Gulfport
supported it and agreed
to remove the trash at no
charge to residents or the
community group.
According to Gulfport
Neighbors vice-president
Margarete Tober, many of
the items didn't make it
to the junk heap because
other people snapped them

Gulfport police were also on hand
to answer resident questions and register bicycles. Typically,
bulk pickups cost residents $17 per claw grab of the city's
picker truck, but on Junk in the Trunk amnesty days,

Michael Audino presented a
plan to provide valet service
in Gulfport. Under this
plan, the valet service would
operate in city limits at no
cost to passengers.
"There's a need for enhanced

he told council. Mr. Audino

"We view this as a partnership,"
between the City of Gulfport, the
Gulfport Area Chamber of Commerce,
and the Gulfport Merchant's
Association, Mr. Audino said. That
group would establish a non-profit
entity to operate the organization
but an independent contractor would
drive the vehicles and collect tips.
Citizens can ask questions such
as whether or not the golf cars will
allow advertising, who would pay the
liability insurance, total costs and
the city's share of such costs, and
how many cars would go into service,
will get answered at the February 6
At that workshop council could
also consider the legality of golf cars
and learn whether Mr Audino's plan
includes street-legal golf cars or if
Gulfport would have to change the
law to allow cars. Currently Gulfport
only allows street-legal golf cars on
its roads, which differ from certain
types of golf cars.

People are often skeptical about hypnosis and its ability to aid in
smoking cessation. Because of my many years of experience
helping people stop smoking, I understand the skepticism.
First and most important is to understand that smoking is an
addiction. Popular media has informed us about the obvious ,
addictive potential of nicotine but not much is discussed about
the psychological part of this addiction.
Cigarettes find their way into the very fabric of everyday life,
becoming a part of so many activities. Habits are formed,
creating associative relationships to things like food and alcohol or even driving a car. Smokers
also learn to identify themselves with cigarettes, and after a while, it seems to becomes a part of
them. You must understand that psychological cravings are just as real as chemical ones.
Perhaps most importantly cigarettes become for most people part of a coping mechanism to try to
deal with emotional pressures like stress and boredom. There are much more positive ways to
learn to calm and feel better without replacing smoking with food and putting on weight. You can
learn how.
Recent publications tell us that our bodies eliminate the need for nicotine only a few days after we
quit smoking. If it was purely a physical addiction, we would be done with smoking after a few days
off the cigarette. But as most smokers know, the cravings usually continue when they try to quit
cold turkey far after those first few days are over. This is because of the psychological needs that
continue to drive the motivation to smoke.
This is where hypnosis helps. Hypnosis is an excellent tool for re-learning. By changing subcon-
scious motivations to smoke you will change the habits and associations that drive much of this
behavior. You can also learn new coping skills so that the cigarette is not needed during stressful
or emotional times. Dealing with both the chemical and the psychological addiction is the real key
to long term smoking cessation.
As you can imagine, with a smart plan and new tools and new attitudes about smoking, you can
learn how to change the habits and healthfully deal with the emotional strains of life free from
Hypnosis is not magic, but it is a powerful tool. With professional help and understanding and if you
really want to quit and are willing to put in some effort and invest in yourself, you really can quit
smoking for life. ( October 2005, John Melton, C.Ht.)

Council Gets First
Raise in 14 Years
Council voted 3-2 to give itself a
pay raise, the first such raise in 14
years. Vice Mayor Dan Liedtke and
Ward Two Councilwoman Christine
Brown voted against the raise.
Councilwoman Brown said she
regarded the position as a sort of
volunteer post, but outgoing Ward
Three Councilwoman Jennifer
Salmon pointed out that the amount,
amortized over the years since
council's last raise, did not amount
to a significant amount of money per
The ordinance will raise council
pay from $600 per month to $850 per
month; the mayor will make $1,000
per month. Council last received a
raise by unanimous vote in 2000,
when the mayor's pay went from
$600 to $800. Earlier in Gulfport's
history, such raises went before the
voters for approval. The raise goes
into effect this coming budget year.

Sun Damage: Pre-Cancers

Actinic Keratoses (AK) are most
often pink or red crusty patches
found on sun exposed areas. Men
tend to get AK on the scalp, espe-
cially if hair is thinning, and we
often see these lesions on the
hands, faces, chest, and legs of
men and women in the areas of
sun exposure from the years
before they were thirty years old.
If left untreated, actinic kera-
toses can grow into Squamous
Cell Carcinoma (SCC), appearing
pink or red, volcano-like growths,
sometimes growing quickly.
Many times patients come in to
our office thinking they had been
bit by a spider, but they were

A great analogy for actinic kera-
toses is to think they are weeds in
your lawn, where the lawn is
your skin. We have many meth-
ods to treat actinic keratoses, but
just like weeds, no matter which
method we chose, new ones often
arise. The goal of treating the AK
is to treat them early and hope-
fully prevent or delay their
progression into skin cancers.

There are several methods to
treat actinic keratoses depending
on the number of lesions, their
locationss, insurance restric-
tions, patient expectations, and
patient tolerance of potential
irritating treatments. Common
treatments include: cryosurgery,
photodynamic therapy (PDT),
and topical chemotherapy

Cryosurgery is a procedure done
in the office using a canister of
liquid nitrogen to spray each
individual lesion to be treated.
The spray itself is extremely cold
and can be painful, often creating
a blister on the treatment site
within 24 hours and usually
heals within 2 weeks.

Photodynamic therapy (PDT), or
the "blue light", is a treatment for
AK done in our office. The patient
is at our office for two hours and
must avoid sun exposure for at
least 48 hours afterwards. We
apply an acid called "Levulan
Kerastick" to the skin and let it
"incubate" for an hour prior to
placing the patient under the
"blue light" for 16 minutes 40

There are now many topical
therapies to treat actinic kerato-
sis including 5- fluorouracil
(brand names: Carac, Fluoroplex,
Efudex, generics), Imiquimod
(brand names: Zyclara, Aldara,
generics), Diclofenac gel (brand
name "Solaraze"), and Picato
(Ingenol Mebutate). The advan-
tages to the topical treatments
are cost effectiveness and conve-
nience. The disadvantages are
insurance coverage, amount of
packaged medication, and poten-
tial irritation to treatment site.

The above treatments are an
overview of the more common
treatments used today to treat
Actinic Keratoses. This does not

substitute for you being evalu-
ated by your dermatology
provider and discussing all the

Dear Cathy: Thank you for
publicly thanking our President. If
more of the press (and politicians)
would acknowledge the fantastic
benefits of this act and put a tiny
bit of effort into helping it succeed
instead of tearing it apart---think
how many more Americans could

Dear Cathy: I'm so glad that
Obama Care has worked out for you.
I truly am. However, that is not
the case for all of us in the public
I was living in Iowa with a great
job with great health insurance. I
lost that job and because it appeared
that I might have a better chance at

getting a job in Florida (I wasn't in
Iowa) and I have two brothers living
here, I moved. I have had so many
interviews and working interviews
however; there are so many people
looking for jobs that I have been
unsuccessful at getting one. Which
in turn means I have been without
employee-paid insurance.
I had Cobra for as long as they
would allow however; even then, that
cost me over $600.00 a month. Then
when I applied for individual health
insurance in Iowa I was denied by
some carriers due to pre-existing
conditions. I finally found one with
Humana that was short term for one
year at a little over $300.00 a month.
I could handle that amount but they
would not renew it.
I was hopeful when I heard about
Obama Care and that insurance
companies were not being able to
discriminate against us for pre-
existing conditions. However; my
current policy is costing me over
$600.00 a month again. I could

effective insurance Obama Care

Chicken Soup
Dear Editor: DISCLAIMER! No
Gulfport chickens were violated in
the writing of this letter!
Growing up in a small rural
Wisconsin town, we were often
treated with homemade chicken
soup made with loving care by our
mother. She was careful when
rendering the stock to ensure that
excess skin, fat and oddities were
skimmed or removed and then the
veggies, noodles and extras were
added. When it was served it was
full of aroma, flavor and taste... IT
It occurred to me last week (when
I read the Gabber's story about
Gulfport spending $20,000 on a
Clam Bayou study) that perhaps
Gulfport needs to follow this simple
recipe when it comes to the water
quality of our bay. Stop the trash
flow that runs into our 1,.i,..u 1i.i
from every street between 58th
Street to Quincy Street. Why would
you toss that much money into a pot
that we already know (from previous
studies) has been tainted by 100+
years of runoff? Going in to try any
clean up effort before stopping the
flow of trash would be like asking
the chicken to pluck, skin, and
render its own fat!
We want that fresh water, we need
that fresh water coming into the
bayou to keep the estuary alive, but
not in the condition that it's coming
in from Gulfport streets.

Questions For Gulfport's Ward Three Candidates
Compiled by Cathy Salustri

S Paul E. Ray
Gulfport Ward 3

"Yolanda Roman
p ,_Gulfport Ward 3

On March 11, voters will choose either Paul E. Ray (1002 Hull Street South) or Yolanda
Roman (5919 19th Avenue South) as their next representative for Ward Three. We asked
them both the same set of questions. You can read their unedited answers below.

What is your career?
Yolanda Roman: After
graduating from Chestnut
Hill College in Philadelphia,
I began my career as a
Johnson & Johnson (J&J). In
the ensuing years, my career
transitioned into a variety of
sales and marketing roles.
After 28 years, I retired from
J&J as the National Director
of Advocacy Relations.
Upon leaving J&J in 2006,
Alkermes, Inc. approached
me to join them as a
Regional Director of Access
& Reimbursement. This is
my current position.

Paul Ray: Software
developer/engineer, former
software development and
consulting firm president
and owner of a restaurant.

How long have
you lived at your
current address?

PR: Three years.

YR: In April of this year, I
will have been in my current
home for six years.

Who else lives in
your household?

YR: Currently, I share my
home with my two dogs,

Duchess and Rocco, and
my newest addition, a
kitten named Maddy. My
children have lived here
and return periodically as
they transition from school
to their careers. My eldest,
Julian, after returning from
the Peace Corps; Jonathan
after graduating from
Florida State University;
and most recently, Jolie after
graduating from Florida
International University.

PR: Wesley, my other half
of 14 years with whom I am
married (in MA) and been
with for 14 years.

In 10 words or less
(we'll talk more
in depth in a later
interview), tell
voters why you
chose to run:

PR: Out of a commitment to
the city has adopted me.

YR: I am motivated and
possess the skills to serve

Where is the last
place you lived
before Gulfport?
Why did you
move away from
that place?

YR: Prior to moving to
Gulfport in 2008, I spent
20 years in Laverock,
Pennsylvania, where I raised
my three kids. In February
2005, I purchased a vacation
cottage near Clam Bayou,
where I spent a considerable
amount of time from 2005-
2008. It was during these
years that I came to love
When I purchased my
current home in Gulfport
in the spring of 2008, I had
two kids studying in Florida
public universities, and my
mother, brother and his
partner already living in

PR: Jacksonville, Florida. I
came down to Gulfport with
Wesley, my other half, 14
years ago. He is originally
from Pinellas County, his
family is from St Petersburg,
and some of them have lived
in Gulfport over the years.
He took me to the downtown
of Gulfport and I fell in love.
The charm of Gulfport is
very reminiscent of Cape
Cod where I grew up, the
friendliness and openness of

thepeople, restaurants, views
from the beach, and of course
the weather. I determined
that day we would live here,
it just took me almost 10
years. The reason for leaving
Jacksonville is that we never
felt the same as we did in

What in the city
most needs council's

PR: The sewer, water, and
storm drainage system.
Although the bayou came
to mind as well, the sewer
system is going to cost the
city more and more money
the longer we ignore it.

YR: The city budget is
the vehicle through which
council can have the most
impact. We must budget in
a fiscally conservative and
responsible manner, while
maintaining optimal city
services and amenities.

How many hours
a week do you
think it will take to
serve on Gulfport
city council?

YR: It is clear to me that
time requirements will
vary depending on the
time of year (e.g., budget
discussions) and/or the type
of issues before the council. I
completely understand that
as a council member I will
be required to come to all
meetings fully prepared to
engage in discussions, ask
questions and share findings
from my own research and/or
input from the community.
Regardless of the time
required, I am committed to
meeting this obligation.

PR: The conversations I have
had with the other council
members lead me to believe
that this will be a minimum
of 15 hours a week.

Gabber January 23 -January 29, 2014

Describe Gulfport
in three words.

PR: Quirky, accepting, artistic.

YR: Community.


Would you have run for
office had the incumbent
(Jennifer Salmon) chosen
to remain in office?

YR: I decided to run upon learning
that the Ward III City Council seat
would be vacant.

PR: No. Had the Ward Three city
council member Jennifer Salmon not
announced her intent on not running
for re-election, I would not have
entertained the idea. I was mostly
pleased with her performance on

What's the worst thing
about Gulfport?

PR: 49th St Corridor. This is not a
good first impression we leave people

YR: Gulfport is an inviting city,
with many different attributes that
showcase our commitment to our
community. This comes in the form
of festivals, events and recreational
activities. Accordingly, the "worst"
thing about Gulfport is trying to find
the time to experience it all.
One of our greater challenges is the
work necessary to finally bring our
sewer systems up to date, in a timely
and fiscally responsible fashion.

What's the best thing
about Gulfport?

YR: The people! Gulfport is defined
by its vast amount of diversity.
This is exemplified by our various
cultures, the artists among us, our
youth, our retirees, and the many
visitors that come and enjoy our
hospitality. There is no other place I
would choose to call home.

PR: That's a hard one to answer, the
people come to mind, the restaurants,
the character, and the acceptance
is sometimes like an oasis in the

Neily taught the Fab Kidlets class at Fab Fibers in the Art Village Courtyard.
Although the young Ms. Anderson-Taylor was the sole attendee, Ms. Neily
decided to continue the class anyway.

"Inlaws, Outlaws, etc."
If you haven't been to see the Players'
production of "Inlaws, Outlaws,
and Other People (That Should Be
Shot)" at the Catherine A. Hickman
Theater of Gulfport, you better get
your tickets ASAP if you plan on
attending. This very popular comedy
will run through Sunday, January
26th, but don't plan on attending
Sunday, since it's already sold out!
In fact, all of the Sunday shows have
sold out! The Gulfport Community
Players have a few tickets left for
the remaining Thursday, Friday and
Saturday shows. Curtain time for
these shows is 8 p.m. The Hickman
Theater is located at 26th Ave.
S. and Beach Blvd. in Gulfport.
Check out the Players' website at: for

Tickets are still only $15, but the
Players advise you to use their will-
call phone line at 727-322-0316 to be
assured of getting tickets. If you do
use this will-call line, you must pick
up your tickets at least 30 minutes
before curtain time (7:30 p.m. or
earlier) the night of the performance,
or your tickets may be sold to others
waiting in line. The Players kid you
not! This show has sold out the last

don't want to take a chance and wait
until the last minute to try to get a

You most likely won't be able to.
The Players also advise people who
have already purchased tickets, or
have, or plan on using, the will-
call number, to arrive by 7 p.m. or
even earlier if possible. The Players
use open seating, so there are no
assigned seats. The inside doors
to the theater normally open 30
minutes before curtain time, but due
to the large crowds lately the Players
have opened them up a bit earlier
at some of their performances. Also,

Q: Why is there no MLK named street in Gulfport? Why is there no

A: Quite possibly because it has never come up, according to City

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


44 A A A

"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.
"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.

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.

ott+Ioroscope Guide

By Holiday Mathis
Lady Venus grows weary of coasting
backward and changes direction on
Jan. 31. To keep the peace while the
Love Goddess is in the power-aware
sign of Capricorn, avoid pointing out
the differences between the way men
and women think and behave. It's
dangerous to make generalizations
in this regard, but if you must, at
least avoid doing so publicly. The
new moon in Aquarius on the 30th
starts a fresh cycle.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18).
The understanding you seek may
elude you. Your best bet is to try to
explain yourself with as few words
as possible. If it can't be conveyed
like that, it's a sign that you need
to explore it more yourself. Deep
knowledge is more easily shared
than complicated concepts. Perhaps
you can get deeper.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). It's
easier to remember the unfortunate
things that happened than all of your
good luck. This is simply a survival
mechanism of the human mind
to keep us from repeating actions
that have negative consequences.
Counteract this instinct by
consciously remembering all of the
beauty you've known.
ARIES (March 21-April 19).
There is quite a lot you can't control
about the outcome of your days but
much more that you can. It's hard
to see those places of control all by
yourself. Someone with a different
lifestyle will, by example, show you
the points of choice that you are not
currently aware of.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Even
though you're a socially comfortable
person, you still feel yourself clam
up from time to time around certain
people you perceive to have a high
status level. This is an opportunity
for you to work on yourself. What is
it exactly you would have to know
about yourself to be comfortable that
you were on the same level?
GEMINI (.Inv 21-June 21). As
much as you'd like to know the logic
of your romantic choices, chances
are good there is no logic to find. As

William Shakespeare once wrote:
"Ask me no reason why I love you;
for though Love uses Reason for his
physician, he admits him not for his
CANCER (June 22-July 22). This
week there are many reasons why
it is dangerous to revisit the past in
order to better understand the future.
For starters, it's difficult to discern
whether you are remembering what
actually happened, or are instead
creating a new version of what
happened with your memory.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Watch
carefully before you align yourself
with any person or side. The person
in charge is not the one you think it
is at first. Look past the superficial
and into the subtle cues. Here's a
hint: Power and wisdom are often
confused by the powerful, but never
confused by the wise.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Your
attention might be pulled into
glitz, glamour and celebrity culture
this week. If you're going to idolize
someone, make sure it's for the right
reasons -- or at least ponder what
those reasons might be. As comedian
Fred Allen once said, "Hollywood
is a place where people from Iowa
mistake each other for stars."
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You
create yourself anew each day,
although some days it feels like
you're just doing it the same way as
you did the day before. This week,
you'll be aware that you don't have
to do that. If part of who you are
routinely being is not creating an
alive and awake kind of feeling, alter
that section of daily life.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Don't
judge yourself for being negative.
Those who are relentlessly and
unceasingly positive may not be
engaging in their environment
enough to be aware of what really
needs to be done. Handling the
responsibilities of life is often
difficult, and it's only human to go
through a range of feelings in this
21). Despite your efforts to make

the events of the week happen in
a certain way, they will happen as
they do. Your job will be to make
the most of it. Consider these words
from philosopher Albert Camus,
"You cannot acquire experience by
making experiments. You cannot
create experience. You must undergo
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19).
When you have a great deal of
something you don't think about it
much. Love, money, work, talent,
knowledge, beauty and more ...
what are you focused on now? And
how might you think and behave if
you knew you already had plenty of
it? Experiment this week to move
toward the change you desire.
This Week's Birthdays: Aware
that there is more going on than
your five senses can detect, you
are on a spiritual quest this year.
Supernatural experience will become
the norm for you. Next month brings
a new influence to your world, and
you'll change your approach to a
problem that's plagued you for years.
Physical endeavors will be lucky in
May and you could improve your
health and fitness markedly. New
career goals relate to loved ones, and
mutual support will get you to the
desired accomplishment.

Library Kicks Off
Expansion Fund-
Raising Campaign
The St. Pete Beach Library invites
the public to the kickoff for its
$700,000 fund-raising campaign to
provide a much needed 3,500-square-
foot addition and interior space
renovation. Event is Wednesday,
January 29th, 5 to 6:30 p.m. at the
Library, 365 73rd Avenue. Best-
selling Tampa author Tim Dorsey
will cap the evening with a preview
and autograph-signing of his 16th
Serge Storms' book, "Tiger Shrimp
Architects from the Harvard-Jolly
firm will be on hand with renderings
andkeyinformation about the project,
along with Library Administrator
Phyllis Ruscella, City Manager Mike
Bonfield, other city officials and
library staff. A fund-raising brochure
with the renderings will be available,
with many naming and other donor
opportunities. First major funding
for the total $2 million project came
from the PPLC (Pinellas Public
Library Cooperative), which last
February awarded the city a grant
for $200,000 in capital improvement
funds for the Library Expansion/
Renovation project.
Ward Friszolowski of Harvard Jolly,
former Mayor and Library Advisory
Board Chair, noted that the added
space includes an entrance foyer,
expanded restrooms and a long
desired 75-capacity meeting room
that can be divided into two spaces
for the Library's and community's
many programs. Renovation plans
for the existing space include such
features as a new children's area
with more computers and seating, a
new 'storytime room' for the younger
set, more computers and seating for
the public, a more efficient overall
layout with a new circulation desk
closer to the new main entrance, a
better staff working area, a larger
Friends' Bookstore, a better display
for new collection materials -- books,
DVD movies and music CDs, and
more storage space overall.
Ruscella added, "The changing
needs of patrons drive the necessity
for repurposing our existing space
and extending the public areas and
parking accommodation. Currently,
approximately 80% of SPB residents

Gabber January 23 -January 29, 2014

have active library patron accounts,
and on average, 100-plus new patron
accounts are set up each month.
Circulation reached a five-year high in
2012, averaging 16,500itemschecked-
out monthly. Similar increases
have occurred in programming and
resultant attendance. Computer
usage has reached a plateau, limited
by the number of public workstations
The St. Pete Beach Library is
celebrating its 45th anniversary in
2014, and, dependent on anticipated
fund-raising success, the first phase
interior renovation project should
start before year-end.
The City has set up a separate
account for all donations, big or small,
designated for the multi-year Library
facility expansion/renovation project.
To make a contribution, please

10-30-1949 / 1-25-2013
It has been 1 year since I lost you,
the eternal love of my life. Your love
for me completely changed my life.
Because of you I've known love. You
were my wife, partner, friend, lover,
my joy in life. We were one and
nothing in this world will ever replace
this loneliness I feel inside. Words
cannot explain this emptiness in my
soul. The Lord took you home, but in
my heart I know that... If tears could
build a stairway, And memories a
lane, I would walk right up to heaven
And bring you home again. Until I
see you again my love, sleep in peace

not the issue. The issue is the
number of people working which is
at its lowest point since 1978 (62.8).
If the normal number of people
rejoined those looking for work, the
unemployment rate would be a point
higher. More people working, of
course, would be a huge boost to the
economy, but the number working
continues to decline or remain flat.
In the meantime, 6.3 per cent of
men are unemployed and 6 per cent
of women. The white unemployment
is at 5.9 per cent; black, 11.9 per
cent; Hispanics, 8.3.; Asians, 4.1; and
teenagers 20.2. These statistics come
from the Bureau of Labor Statistics
and are as of the end of December.
These make good material for arguing
for more aid to the unemployed in
unemployment benefits. Though
already extended from the normal 26
weeks (one half a year) to 99 weeks
(nearly two years), many are arguing
for a continuation.

That sounds fine, but some contend
that there are studies showing that
extending benefits is an incentive
not to grab whatever job that can
be had and starting the personal
recovery. This is combined with
other studies showing that the
longer not working the less desirable
the worker becomes. Those may be
valid, but are statistics and difficult
to apply individually. When applied
to individual cases, the arguments
for termination of benefits become
more difficult.
Thus, the government talk is
about extending benefits, increasing
minimum wage, and solving the
problem ofpayinequality. Increasing
minimum wage, which again sounds
humane, does put pressure on the
job providers because not only do
the lower, usually temporary, wages
go up, but those on the next rung
expect an increase, too. The teenage
unemployment rate is unlikely to
drop and might increase. As for
solving the pay inequality problem,
a growing work force and a vigorous
economy helps in the middle ranks
and capping salaries or government

ur shop recommends (based on experience in our own market with
battery life) that batteries be replaced every 3 years for maximum
reliability. Our Interstate ED-18 battery tester shows the average life of
a battery to be 3 years in this market.

dictated caps can ruin an economy.
Research wage controls.
So, we're back to the real issue. How
to createjobs. No onejust createsjobs,
but certain steps can be taken. One
would be to approve the oil pipe line
project from Canada to the U.S. Gulf.
This has been on hold and President
Obama apparently has no intention
of approving it although it helps jobs
both here and in Canada. Another
step would be to stop the attack on
the coal industry. This is killing jobs.
Not only that but increased federal
paper work, referred to generally as
regulations, is stifling job creation.
This does not necessarily mean
lifting environmental and safety
regulations, but speeding up the
processes needed for approval.
Along that line, I would normally
(believe it or not) favor a major
government stimulus program
related to infrastructure. However,
the one bill put forth a few years ago
was so mammoth, so complicated,
so filled with handouts and political
favors, that it would have made the
Affordable Care Act (DemoCare)
implementation look like a cake
walk. Besides, as discovered, there
are no "shovel ready ,"'i.." i-". Part
of that problem is that it takes years
to approve the shovel. So, unless we
can clear away the morass of paper
work and regulations, aswellas more
narrowly focus the infrastructure
projects, such a bill wouldn't have an
effect for another ten years.
In the meantime, DemoCare
is stifling jobs. The confusion,
vagueness, costs, known and
unknown, the 30 hour benefit level,
and exemptions for some and not
others, and overall thousands of
pages of regulations and controls,
some not yet written, are all drags
on job creation.
Government now appears to be
focusing on controlling as many
aspects of the economy as it can,
putting in place certain protections
and guarantees regardless of the
immediate or long term negative
effects. All this under the mantra
that federal government knows
best and we should just take our
medicine. It might hurt for a few
more years, but it is good for you. In
the meantime, government will give
you a handout to live on.

will run at the Hickman Theater for
three weeks, from April 3rd through

Rosen, produced by Eileen Navarro,
and choreographed by Rose Mallare.
"Stepping Out" is a delightful
comedy about an amateur tap dance
class preparing a routine for an
upcoming competition. Winner of

the coveted Olivier Award, this play
reflects on and celebrates the joys and
frustrations of amateur performing
arts production.
Most cast members do not need

role in this production. Candidates
must be able to display a competent
degree of coordinated movement,
rhythm, and the ability to follow
simple choreography. The cast and
the characters playing them both

40, and nine females, ranging in age
from their 20's to 70's.

GArtisian Breads N. Y Bagels
Giant Biscotti Scones
ABy Cathy Salustri
If you love the fresh bread at Gulfport's Tuesday Fresh Market, nothing we say here will
come as a shock to you. If you haven't, stop by this Tuesday to sample Kurt's bread and
Kurt Schliebner, a former marine and professional sales manager and consultant, has I
"failed miserably at retirement." After retirement a few years ago, he volunteered at Bay
Pines Veterans Medical Center as a way of giving back before turning his discipline and business acumen to bread.
Several years ago, he told then-Fresh-Market-organizer Daniel Hodge he thought someone should sell bread at the
market. Daniel turned to him and said, "Well, you're someone." With that, Kurt joined the Tuesday morning ranks.
"I've always been involved in Gulfport. I live in Maximo but I spend all my time and money here," he says of his decision
to enter the Fresh Market. He doesn't work at any other markets, preferring instead to concentrate on Gulfport. He prides
himself not only on the quality of his breads but that his customers know they can count on him.
"I have never, ever missed a Tuesday. Even when the market gets canceled because of bad weather, I show up," he says.
"Seventy percent of my customers are regular, repeat customers. I've established a very nice relationship with most and
have made lots of friends."
After years of building a client base, Kurt sells out every Tuesday; his regulars know to come early for the best selection
(the market opens at 9 every Tuesday morning.)
Kurt generally has at least eight different bread selections, but he always starts his Tuesdays with olive and herb, asiago,
rye, baguettes and multigrain. His best seller? Far and away the olive and herb. If you want to try it, get there early he
sells out every week. Although he could certainly sell his breads at other markets, he chooses to sell only at Gulfport's
Tuesday Market.
"I choose not to do any more. I like Gulfport. This is fun," he laughs.
"I have a great quality product, and people know that I'm always there. Consistency helps a lot," he says, but he credits
his customers with his success, too:
"I want to thank all of my customers for four years of loyalty," he said "You have all been very good to me."
Kurt shares his love for all things yeasty with his partner of 17 years, Betty look for either of them at the Tuesday Morn-
ing Market in Gulfport.

She immerses the viewer in "Calm
Evening" with a masterful display
of visual poetry. Experience the
stunning reflections of Florida's
pristine "( 'i. --...\ i/Ik.i River".
Discordant blue green waves
breaking over umber rocks give
us "California Surf'. "Palomino"
expresses the beauty of its golden
coat and flowing white mane.

Photography artist Walles turned
a childhood hobby into a career that
sees the world in a unique way.
"Shooting in black and white distills
an image to its structure, which
is expressive in itself' as reflected
in "Beach Chair". High contrast
compositions enhance silhouettes
in "Waltz the Night Away" and
"Caribbean Saloon". "Happy
Hour, South Beach" without the
distraction of color, gives the viewer
an emotionally charged time of day.
Talented artist Walsh, not lacking
inspiration to paint, attempts to
simulate the bold shapes and bright
colors of Matisse in acrylic abstract
"In the Courtyard". Lyrics of
songwriter Richard Harris "someone
left the cake out in the rain" gives
breath to watercolor i, A\i'itlI'
Park". She prefers abstracts but
delves into other techniques with

mixed media "Dragonfly" and a
delightful "Whimsy".
The work of self- taught watercolor
artist Winston finds itself bathed
in the pure pleasure of "expressing
oneself' and having "fun" in the
process. As watercolor is uniquely
challenging, she successfully allows
the light to shine through her
medium's transparency in "Heron
in Hiding" and "Water Over Rocks".
Luminous color welcomes a sunlit
day for "Potted Plants". A "Peaceful
Scene" invites the viewer at days'
end to just "be".
Enter the oil painting world of artist
Womack, whose Impressionistic style
gives us exciting brushwork and
freshness in "Pelican Point, Maximo
Park" and "Inlet, Boca Ciega Bay".
To compliment the tranquil setting
of "Sundown on Pass-a-Grille Beach"
soft pastel hues calm the spontaneity
of her style. In shifting gears to an
experimental mode, "Study" evolved
into an abstract of colorful forms
superimposed over a portrait.

You & THE


By Robert J. Myers, Esq.
What Steps are Involved
in the Probate Process?
Part I
The first step in the probate process
is to determine whether the deceased
left a will, that is a legal document
prepared by a person before death
directing others how to distribute his

or her property after death. If a will
exists, the person is said to have died
Although determining that a will
does exist might be fairly easy, finding
the will may be more difficult. It is
important to locate the last will and
any amendments (called codicilss")
to it. Among the places where people
commonly keep wills are strong-
boxes, file cabinets, desk drawers,
and safe deposit boxes.
If you have agreed to serve as
the Personal Representative for
someone's estate, it is essential to
learn in advance where the person
keeps the will. If the will is in a bank's
safe deposit box, please keep in mind
that the law requires the box to be
sealed at the owner's death. Because

you need to get a court order to open
a safe deposit box, it is not the best
place to keep a will.
Within ten (10) days following
death, the will should be filed by
your attorney with the probate clerk
in the county where the person lived
at the time of death. In most cases,
however, there is no need to rush to
the probate clerk's office. If you have
recently lost a spouse or other loved
one, this is a stressful and vulnerable
time. You might want to wait a few
months, until you are feeling settled,
to begin the probate process. With the
passage of a few months' time, you
may be in a better position to tackle
the decisions and details of probate.
Any person entitled to the deceased's
property as an heir, as a beneficiary
named in a will, or as a creditor
(known as "interested persons") can
file a written request at the probate
clerk's office to begin a probate
proceeding. This written request is
typically called a "petition for probate

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

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

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
nine days, nine times a day. Then publish this
prayer. ThankYou, Jesus. L.E.

PRAY 9 HAIL MARY'S for 9 days, request 3
wishes, 1 business & 2 impossible. On the 9th
day, publish this article, your wishes will be an-
swered even if you don't believe. T.A.B.
