Players are
"Stepping Out"
The Gulfport Community Players
will be opening a comedy by Richard
Harris entitled, "Stepping Out," at
the Catherine A. Hickman Theater of
Gulfport on April 3rd. This play will
run through April 20th.
This show has been a play, a
musical, and a movie. The director,
Richard Rosen, is doing it as a play,
although it does have plenty of music
and dancing in it. It's not often you
have a choreographer for a play, but
this play has an excellent one by the
name of Rose Mallare. She has had
her work cut out for her, to say the
very least!
The cast includes Vivian Rossbach,
Aleesa Shaw, Elizabeth Bell, Eileen
Navarro, Suzy Fritz, Pat Mahan,
Jean Pelligrini, Kevin Lawrence,
Annie Murren, Jennifer Casler,
Mason Mills, and Eddy Ganim.
"Stepping Out" has got tap dancing
in it, a lot of tap dancing, to some
great music of yesteryear. It's also
got a very moving story to tell about
a group of people, of different ages
and backgrounds, all of whom, for
different reasons, decide to take tap
dancing classes in the basement of
a church. Most of these people have
never tapped danced before, so you'll
see their ups and downs as they slowly
try to advance in their training.
Their instructor, named Mavis, has
seven ladies and one gentleman in
her class. But, as you probably can
imagine, anytime you get a diverse
combination of people together for a
common goal, you're going to get a
lot of drama to go along with it. The

professional, I find two articles in the
March 27 -April 2, 2014 Gabbervery
interesting. The letter to the Editor
and Cathy's Hard Candy article has
opened a door for me to professionally
respond to a very serious problem.
Yes, Gulfport is the most pet
friendly city in the world. With pet
privileges comes great responsibility
of the owners. Yes owners, if your pet
misbehaves in any manner or people
look upon your pet with negative
reactions, it is your fault. I don't care
the breed or size of your dog, every
dog can and will behave if properly
cared for by the human.
Although I do not personally know
of the situation described in the
Letter to the Editor, I have many
times heard of or seen smaller dogs
attacking larger dogs and the fact
the smaller dog is injured is basically
a 'no brainer'. Every dog placed into a
social situation is to always be under
the control of the owner. Dobermans,
Labs, Chihuahuas, I don't want to be
bitten by either. I also don't want my
dogs, which are Chihuahuas, to be
attacked by either, thus I take on the
responsibility to keep my dogs safe.
A dog on a leash is always in a 'fight

or flight' mode. When they don't
have the option to flee by being on a
leash, they will fight. Imagine what
you as a human would do under the
same circumstances. If someone is
attacking you, even if it was a child,
sooner or later you would push that
person away. Dogs depend on their
humans to protect them. They don't
want to make decisions concerning
their safety as a stable dog trusts
his pack leader completely. They
will only make the decision if their
pack leader is not capable. If you find
yourself unable to protect your dog
from every situation, leave the dog at
Scientists have determined that a
dog's mature brain is that equal to
a two year old child, which brings
up another situation, the flex leash.
A professional dog handler would
never work with a dog on a leash
longer than six feet. At the beginning
of training the four foot leash is used.
As the training matures, the dog is
given the extra two feet of a leash.
If a professional doesn't allow a dog
to be further away than six feet, why
does a nonprofessional feel they can
properly handle a dog that is as far
away as ten feet? Would you feel
comfortable with a two year old child,
in the midst of street traffic, people
and other dangers being on their
own ten feet away from you. As a
professional, I feel this is a dangerous
product. Just in the St. Pete area
a lady stood on the sidewalk while
her dog walked into traffic. Another
lady had her dog ran over in her own
driveway by a UPS truck. Both dogs
were on the flex leash and both are
Lastly, addressing Cathy's article
concerning misbehaving people
with pets at Artwalk. In the midst
of a crowd, a dog allowed to be more
than two feet from it's caregiver is

not responsible pet ownership. To
have the ability to attend activities
with our dogs is a privilege. I have
been entangled in dog leashes and
I do not appreciate the disrespect
given by these dog owners. Yes, I'm
calling YOU out, not your dog. I can
see that as this becomes a larger
problem, privileges will go away. If
each of us with dogs take ownership
responsibilities seriously, our dogs
will be happier, safer and capable of
living in harmony with others.
Lynda Shehan

Keep up the good work
Dear Cathy (Salustri): Just ajot to
tell you how much I enjoy your articles
-- especially liked the most recent
one regarding walking of pooches
during downtown activities. When
we were in Gulfport in early March
to purchase property, meandering
canines on the ends of long leads
kept me looking downward instead of
at the Farmer's Market items. Don't
get me wrong: I am a DOG LOVER
with a highly-entitled Yorkie, yet I
would not allow my dog to get into
someone's way. Especially so, when
it's tourists' spending that adds to the
City's coffers. We love Gulfport and
plan to move there permanently once
my husband retires. Your delightful
musings are always something to
which I look forward when reading
The Gabber.Keep up the grand

Sail Away Realty Fosters Community, not Commuter Culture
By Cathy Salustri

Anita and Scott Shwarts are thrilled to open a second Sail Away
Realty in another great area: St. Petersburg's Grand Central
District. "We feel that we've been successful in what we've done,
and we want to build on that," Anita says.

If you're seeking that laid-back lifestyle and beachy
Gulfport vibe, Sail Away Realty can make that dream
a reality. But if you want a Gulfport lifestyle in a
Kenwood-esque bungalow, they can do that, too.
Most Gulfportians know Sail Away Realty as the
place Mike and Judy Baggs made great, but not as
many people know that about two years ago, Scott
and Anita Shwarts purchased the long-established
Sail Away Realty from the Baggs family.
The Shwarts moved to Gulfport because, like most
Gulfportians, they came to visit and decided to stay.
Bonus: they loved they could live and work in the
same place. Anita says it reminds her the most of
living in Europe. Their clients who hail from all
around the country, if not the world find the charm
of the city appealing. They cite community as well as
things like the ability to walk around easily.
"That's what we're finding that buyers are looking
for," Anita says, referencing a community's
walkability score. Scott agrees: "That walk score is
really important for everyone."
Sail Away already manages numerous long-term
rental properties in Gulfport (six months or greater)
and, of course, they sell properties throughout the
town. Like any Realtor, they're happy to sell
throughout Pinellas County, but when it came time to
branch out, they chose to open a second location in a
community most like Gulfport: Kenwood.
"People are looking for things to do without having to
jump in a car every time they want to go somewhere,"
Scott says. Kenwood, with its historic bungalows and
neighborhood feel, offers people much of what
Gulfport does. Both communities draw a younger
"Gulfport is attracting younger people, like at the
kava bar," Anita says. "It's attracting a new crowd,

and we shouldn't be afraid of this. Kenwood has the
same thing, with the many new brew pubs and even
the gourmet popsicle bar. It's a young crowd."
This duo doesn't run their business on dreams and
good wishes, though: they have a solid background
in business and aren't afraid to use it. Anita worked
as a business analyst in London, and this serves Sail
Away's clients well.
"Buying or selling a home is a business transaction
from stem to stern, from marketing the property to
the closing table. It is all about the relationships
that are part of a business transactions," she says.
Scott worked with technology and product
development in the San Francisco Bay area, working
for Apple and other companies.
"Over 75% of homes are found now on the Internet.
Clients come to us with a list of houses they have
found. Understanding how to use the Internet to
market and sell homes is critical. Our web site even
has an iPhone or Android app that allows you to
search the multiple listing service," Scott says.
They believe the best people to sell properties in the
community are people who are active in the
community. They intend to stay put in Gulfport, but
they're branching out into the Historic
Kenwood/Grand Central area, in no small part
because they noticed that their clients tend to focus
on those two areas, seeing similarities.
"It's about buying and selling homes in
neighborhoods," Anita says, "People are looking for
more than three bedrooms, two baths, and a garage.
People are looking now for the character of the
neighborhood, what they can get to from the house
without having to get in their car. They're looking for
community." /

St. Pete Team Wins Gulfport History Hunt

a hPhoto by Bob Bates
t The Koshler family poses with their
spoils: $150 cash prize, "You Know
You're a Gulfportian If" shirt, and a
copy of Gulfport historian Lynne
TBrown's Gulfport history book.

How well do you know
Gulfport? Well, if you're the
St. Petersburg Koshler family,
duo well enough to win $150 at the
Gulfport Historical Society's
Hunt Through History.
Competitors had a list of
clues that led them through
Gulfport's downtown. They
also had to complete certain challenges to earn points.
After a two and a half hour romp through Gulfport's downtown, competitors
met back at the Gulfport History Museum to tally up points. The Koshlers won
with 295 points, easily 20 points ahead of the other teams.To win, they had to
seek out the former Rootbeer Barrel, the Swamp Club, and the site of the old
Boca Ciega Inn. They also had to sing to the owner of Low Tide, T and Me Tea
Company, and they had to sing the Boca Ciega High School alma mater.
Teams came from as far as Sarasota and Palm Harbor for the event.
Although almost all the businesses registered for the business hunt canceled
due to staffing or vacation issues, Beach Bazaar owners Biff and Angela Lagan
have challenged all local businesses to a rematch.
"We don't want to win by default," Biff Lagan said after dinner.
The business rematch will be announced in the Gabber at a later date.

66th Street Flea Market Vendors Present TOGA

Hosted at the Bll B13 booths
By Cathy Salustri

No, it's not a toga party with men dressed
in sheets; this TOGA stands for a "Treadle
On Gathering and Academy" and if you like
old sewing machines or quilting, this is an
event you do not want to miss.
TOGAs take place across the county; the
Florida TOGA takes place every November
in Brooksville. This Saturday's (April 5)
event is a mini-TOGA and will function
much like the others do.
"It's basically getting together people who
collect, sew and repair people-powered
sewing machines," human-powered sewing
machine enthusiast and expert Gary
Humphrey explains.
"That's the gathering part; the academy
part is the learning sessions that go on
during the TOGA," his partner Michael
Condon explains.
This event will include learning sessions,
quilting sessions, on-site repair.
The 66th Street Flea Market is a treasure
trove of unexpected delights like the TOGA
and Gary and Michael's collection of vintage
sewing machines. They are frequent
contributors to a web site called
TreadleOn.Net, a site for people-powered
sewing machine users. TreadleOn, along
with Gary and Michael's business at the

66th Street Flea Market and the exciting
upcoming TOGA, is dedicated to promoting
the use of antique and vintage human
powered sewing machines.
Before you go to the TOGA, spend some
time on the site, which includes
instructions on basic maintenance and
restoration of treadle sewing machines and
hand crank sewing machines. It also
contains some history.
If you're curious about the TOGA, have an
old human-powered sewing machine
stuffed away in a closet and wonder why it's
worth saving (and using!), or already love
quilting and non-quilting activities as they
relate to treadle sewing machines, stop by
the 66th Street Flea Market and see Gary
and Michael at 2 Men Working.
While you're there, browse all the booths
and look for Bob's Fashion Jewelry and
Supplies; Ye Olde Book Shoppe; My Stuff
Old and New; Three Gals Coffee Sweets,
and Treats; Irene's Gift Items, Clothing,
and Cows; Janie's Massage Therapy and
Reflexology; Cat Cash Photography,
Minda's Closet, and Richert Family

Visit the TOGA this Saturday April 5
inside the 66th Street Flea Market,
Booths 11- 13.

5601 66th Street North St. Petersburg
Free and open to everyone.

By Cathy Salustri
City of Gulfport: Waterfront Recycling
Q: I'd like to know why the City of Gulfport does not have recycling bins
all along the waterfront and at Clam Bayou? I clean up trash on my daily
walks and see a ton of recyclables in the regular waste bins. Preserving
and maintaining our wonderful waterfront and nature areas and no recycle
bins? David Virtue
A: From Don Sopak, the director of Public Works:
"The city received three beach recycling cans from Pinellas County for
our beach area last year. These cans were placed in the beach area and are
serviced regularly. Because the cans looked like a regular household trash
can (only blue with the county logo) they have been stolen one at a time.
Public Works has installed three new blue recycling carts at the beach.
There are also two new recycling carts installed in the Osgood Point area.
We encourage all users to please not throw trash in the carts (our biggest

ottoIoroscope Guide

By Holiday Mathis
Humans existed for thousands of
years as restless, roaming hunters
and gatherers. Then one day a travel-
weary soul spoke up and said, "Let's
stay here and try to grow something."
As Mars in Libra opposes the Aries
sun in a tug-of-war situation across
the sky, many will wonder whether
it's better to take what's offered
and use what's around, or create
something that doesn't yet exist.
There are merits to both sides.
ARIES (March 21-April 19).
Something you just found out about
will show up in multiple places in your
life this week. Are you unconsciously
keeping an eye out for it, or is this part
of a grand plan? Either way, there's
a message in all of these seemingly
coincidental happenings, and it won't
be hard for you to decipher it.
TAURUS (April '_ .i \l.yv 20). If you
don't have an "elevator pitch," this is
the perfect time to come up with one,
as you'll likely be meeting new and
influential people in the week ahead.
If you can easily tell them what you
do in 30 seconds, you'll advance to the
next step in your business. The same
principle applies to your personal
GEMINI N.iyy 21-June 21). Some
lies are told out loud, but lies of
omission are worse because they do
not come with any telltale variances
that give the recipient a fighting
chance at detecting them. In your
fight for truth and justice this week,
stay aware of the silence, and poke
around a bit to make sure you're not
missing something.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). A
bossy person will figure strongly
into this week's events. Bossy types
are not as popular as others because
most people don't enjoy being bossed
around. However, bossy people are
often forceful for a reason: They have
a vision they believe in. In this week's
case, much improves when you buy
into it, too.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). At various
points in the week you will play the
role of the free spirit or possibly the
rebel. It's important to note that
to some degree you still care what
people think of you. Free spirits need

friends, too! And rebels are far more
effective at overturning the system
with their crew of revolutionaries in
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Someone
is keeping you from the next step. If
you've been resistant to recognizing
it, here are the signs: 1. You can't
seem to get a clear answer from this
person. 2. The overall feeling is one
of "dragging along." 3. It takes longer
than it should to get in touch. How
will you eliminate or go around this
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Your
tendency to require very little of your
loved ones will make things easy for
them and hard for you. Just know
that "easy" isn't what they really
want. To balance out the relationship,
ask for something more. People want
to give to you, and relationships will
be better if you let them.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). If all
of the logic lines up, and things still
don't feel right, do not move forward.
You'll never regret the decisions you
make that follow a strong intuition.
However, there is plenty to regret
about letting a limited understanding
of the world's precarious accounting
system dictate your choices. Trust
your inner knowing.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21).
Most of your relationships work
brilliantly, and when they don't, you
give people the benefit of the doubt.
Then again, if you can accurately
predict the other person's behavior,
andit'smostlyunsupportive, unhelpful
and ultimately disappointing, then
it's time to take a break. You can
always try again later.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19).
It will benefit you to interact with
others in a controlled environment.
Letter writing, presentations, edited
video -- these are all methods of
communication that allow you to be in
control of what you present. You won't
be able to control every environment
this week, but you'll enjoy taking
charge where you can.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You
can finish a project alone if you like --
just know that it will take you several
weeks to do so. If you want fast
results, enlist the help of a Taurus.

Also, accept the help of the volunteers
who will come along on Thursday and
Friday. (They will be attracted to
your sense of purpose and the fun you
seem to be having.)
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). If
you can't figure out right off the bat
what you have in common with the
new people you meet this week, start
with basic human needs, such as the
need to connect and feel included and
respected. If you couldn't find a single
other commonality, the mutual need
to connect is enough of a basis for a
solid relationship.
This Week's Birthdays: What is
noble and what is natural will work
together for you this year so you won't
have to make big decisions about
image or character consistency. Your
moral compass will be in top working
condition. This contributes to private
victories in May and September, as
well as business success this month
and in June. A sweet interaction in
June leads to a long relationship.
Also, your admirers will grow in
number as you pursue interests more

Where to Keep
Money for Mom?
Dear Mary: My sisters and I have
$10,000 we would like to invest to
cover our mother's funeral expenses
when they occur. She does not have
life insurance or any savings. She is
62 and living on disability at this time.
What would be the best investment
strategy for us? She is not currently
ill. Thank you. -- Bonita W., South

Cheap $kate
Dear Bonita: This is money that
needs to be kept in a safe place
where it is fairly liquid (so you can
have access to it within just a few
days) with enough growth or interest
to at least stay ahead of inflation. I
believe that if I were you, I'd go the
ultra-cautious route and place your
mother's money in an online savings
account such as Ally Bank (
You will earn precious little interest,

Dear Adella: There are literally
available for students -- many of
them for adults like your daughter
who are returning to college. Some
are academic-based, others have
nothing to do with one's GPA. She
will find excellent scholarship search
engines at, and collegeanswer.

her employers to see if either has a
tuition reimbursement plan.
Dear Mary: After reviewing my
credit report, the only thing that is
incorrect is that they have an address
listed for me in Dallas. I have never
lived in Dallas. Is this worth the
hassle of trying to correct? -- Susan
A., Oklahoma
Dear Susan: It is very important
that your address is correct on
your credit report. This incorrect
information on your report could well
be a clue that someone has applied
for credit using your Social Security
number. Follow the instructions that
came with your credit report to get it
corrected. Follow up in a few months
to make sure it has been corrected.

If you have ever considered that maybe Bankruptcy would
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

'" ou could say my
Smotto is '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.

S &

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

^Scmeti Oh my mihd
Ab o By Bill Northrop

College Sports
It's kind of laughable. Maybe like a
joke. Or funny as in peculiar or just
peculiar. Or a joke as in it isn't going
to happen. Or like who cares? Or
maybe all of the above. Except that it
is going to be played out in National
Labor Relations Board hearings and
maybe the courts. In other words,
it's going to cost taxpayers and
Northwestern University, a private
school, a ton of money.
The "it" is the decision by the regional
director of the NLRB that scholarship
football players are employes of the
University and therefore entitled
to collectively bargain through a
union. Right now it only applies to
Northwestern, but theoretically could
apply everywhere in the future. Not
so far-fetched when you remember
that professional athletes once were
unrepresented. By the way, this
was an organizing effort through a
college football player working with
the United Steelworkers Union.
The heart of the pro-union argument
(other than politics) is that the

(727) 328-2847

football players put in a 40-50 hour
week during the five month football
season and are under the total
control of the University. For that
they get a scholarship worth about
$60,000 a year ( tuition, room, board
not to mention travel, etc.) They have
to also keep up their academic work,
supposedly the point of it all). The
school makes millions on tv contracts
and other sponsorships. So, they are
employes and some contend they
should be given additional cash for
their work.
Of course, scholarships go for
more than football: women's field
hockey, baseball, basketball, soccer,
swimming, track, women'sbasketball,
softball, golf. I don't know if the
opinion specified qualifying terms:
hours put in, monetary return to the
school, extent of the scholarship, and
monetary value to the school but it
would be logical that it extends to all
sports and to all conditions. Every
scholarship implies employment
so taxes should be withheld,
overtime hour regulations observed
(interesting to see how travel time is
handled), and so forth.

Our Knowledge & Professional Products Will Help You Do It Right The 1st Time

Perhaps, too, instead of first, second,
third string players, some will get
paid more or less than others, or
not at all. There's no question that
college sports, at least at the larger
schools, is a big business with the
big sports subsidizing smaller sports.
Even smaller, less professional sports
oriented schools, have big demands on
the players. Not everyone graduates.
Northwestern argues they graduate
85 per cent, but others are in the
40 per cent range, and schools like
North Carolina have been accused
of graduating illiterate players even
after providing special easy-to-pass
classes. What is the point of sports
programs anyway? The whole picture
is a bit of a mess.
Scholarships are big deals. Ask any
parent who has to put up money for
a child's education. It explains the
push for grade inflation as well as
the frantic antics of parents of high
school athletes. Maybe, if schools
start to drop scholarship programs,
all that will go away. Maybe some
schools would like to drop their
athletic scholarship programs. Here's
the ideal opportunity.
However, what about academic
scholarships? Those students work
hard. Mental work is as tough as
physical work, if not tougher. Of
course, there aren't any tv contracts.
But, is that the issue? Maybe the real
issue is that you should be paid to go
to school. Might work right down to
the elementary level. Everyone is
an employee. Then, if the work isn't
done, he or she could be fired. Might
be a motivator all around: parents,
students, teachers, administrators.
As I wrote, it's all very funny.

What's in a Cop?

By Gulfport Police
Chief Rob Vincent

Law enforcement officers
are constantly faced with
temptations as well as
the means to abuse their
authority. That is an
unfortunate reality simply
inherent in our line of work.
To help prevent misconduct,
we go to great lengths on the
front end to make sure we're
picking the best people for
the job. In 2013, the Gulfport
Police Department processed
52 applications to fill just
three police officer positions.
Minimum Qualifications
Applicants must be at
least 21 years old and have
completed the state law
enforcement certification
process, whichincludes a 770-
hour basic recruit academy
and passing a standardized
test. In addition, applicants
must have completed at
least 60 college credits or
a three-year active duty
military enlistment. We only
accept applications from
individuals who meet these
minimum standards. From
there, the process only gets
Physical Abilities Test
To make sure our new

recruits are up to the
physical demands of the
job, we run them through a
timed test, which consists of
a 440 yard run, an obstacle
course, and dragging a 150-
pound dummy for 100 feet.
Applicants who cannot pass
the PAT do not continue with
the screening process.
Oral Board
Police work requires the
ability to demonstrate
exceptional communication
skills under high-stress
conditions, so we put our
applicants to the test.
We assemble a group of
three experienced, sworn
supervisors who sit as
a panel and interview
each applicant. They ask
scenario-based questions
and evaluate applicants
on their ability to present
their answers effectively.
The oral board rating
scores are then considered
later in the process when
comparing multiple qualified

We ask each applicant to
complete a ten-page personal
history questionnaire. This
document covers residency,
work history, undetected
criminal activity, drug use,
military service, etc. We
then verify everything in
the document via a lengthy
investigation conducted
by an experienced, sworn
detective. The investigation
will include interviews with
the applicant's neighbors,

review of employment and
military records, review of
education records, database
inquiries to confirm
residential and employment
history, police record checks,
and a fingerprint criminal
history check.
Ifa backgroundinvestigation
reveals no disqualifying
conduct, the next step is a
polygraph test. The examiner
will review all facets of the
applicant's background in an
effort to uncover anything
that may have been missed
to this point. In addition,
the examiner will note any
discrepancies that could
indicate an effort to be
misleading. Dishonesty is
always a disqualifier.

Chief's Interview
Nobody wears a Gulfport
police badge without meeting
with me first. I want the
opportunity to ensure that
each recruit understands
our policing philosophy
and is somebody I want to
represent me personally. I
ask each applicant a series
of standardized questions.
If they do well, I'll extend
an offer of employment,
conditional upon passing the
next two steps.

We employ the services
of a clinical psychologist
with over 15 years of
experience. The doctor uses
a standardized assessment
test, and then he personally
interviews each candidate.
We receive a detailed,
confidential report, along
with a rating indicating the

candidate's psychological
fitness for duty. If the rating
is unacceptable, the job offer
is rescinded.
Medical Evaluation
A physician experienced
in occupational health
completes this final step,
evaluating the candidate
to ensure he or she has no
medical issues that would
interfere with the ability
to perform essential job
functions. This includes a
drug screen.

Field Training Program
If they get through all of the
above steps, the candidate
gets to put on a badge and is
now a Gulfport police officer.
However, there is still a
long way to go. As a part of
the one-year probationary
period, new recruits must
complete vigorous, 16-week,
on-the-job training program.
During this time, an
experienced officer observes
and evaluates the recruit
every moment of every day.
Those who perform well in
this program will achieve
their goal of becoming "solo"
officers, but close evaluation
continues for another eight
months until the probation
period ends and the new
officer is no longer a rookie.
As you can see, it takes a lot
to become a police officer in
Gulfport, but we are proud
of that fact. This is a lengthy
and expensive process, for
sure, but I think the people of
Gulfport deserve the best for
their money. I will continue
to do my best to ensure they
get it.

By Robert J. Myers, Esq.
What is a Guardianship?
(Part II)
This article is a continuation of our
previous article regarding "What Is A
If someone is an adult resident of
the State of Florida, that person
is potentially qualified to serve as
a guardian in Florida. Likewise, a
close relative of a ward who is not
a resident of the State of Florida
may also be qualified to serve as a
guardian. However, if a proposed
guardian is incapable of performing
the duties of a guardian or has been
convicted of a felony, that person
cannot be appointed by the Probate
Court as a guardian. Generally,
the Probate Court will give careful


consideration to the wishes and
desires expressed by a ward as to the
selection of a guardian.
Guardians are required to be bonded
and may be required to complete a
Court-approved training program for
guardians. Guardians are required by
the Probate Court to be represented
by a lawyer. All guardianship reports
are presented to the Probate Court
for review and approval. In the event
a guardian does not carry out his or
her duties in a responsible manner,
the guardian is subject to removal by
the Probate Court.
Guardianship is an expensive and
time-consuming process. Use of less
severe alternatives to guardianship
is highly recommended. For example,
the use of a durable power of attorney,
a health care directive and/or a
revocable living trust may eliminate
the need for a guardianship thereby
reducing the costs and time delay
associated with guardianships.

2 Points On Pets

By Matthew Margolis
Passing on
Useless Advice
Oscar Wilde wrote, "The only good
thing to do with good advice is pass it
on; it is never of any use to oneself."
Good advice, bad advice, utterly
useless advice -- people love to pass
it on.
In working with people and their
dogs, I hear all kinds of "surefire"
strategies for shaping canine
behavior -- tactics passed down from
generation to generation, neighbor to
neighbor, stranger to stranger. And
there's little chance any of it ever
worked for any of the people who so
generously share it.
Recently I was talking with a woman
who has an 11-week-old puppy who
is nipping. She had something in
the neighborhood of four family
members and 20-something friends
and acquaintances weighing in on
what to do to curb this "behavioral
"He's trying to talk to you." Really?
What's he trying to say? "Please don't
listen to anything this person has to
"Tap your dog on the nose and
say 'bad bite.' "Bad bite"? I'm an
English-speaking human being and
I don't even know what that means.
You might as well say "tuna on rye,"
because it's all the same to your pup.
What's worse, "tapping" your dog
on the nose -- whether with your
hand or the much-vaunted rolled-up
newspaper -- has a better chance of
making your dog hand-shy, fearful or

Gabber April 3 -April 9, 2014

even aggressive than it does of curing
him of any "problem behaviors."
"Turn your back on the dog." So he
can nip that booty? If anybody has
a clue about this one, please be in
And one of my all-time favorites:
"Ask him: 'IlL, are you biting your
mother?" Did she give birth to this
pup? Is something going on that I'm
not aware of? And is someone out
there waiting for their dog to respond
to this question?
Besides the senselessness, the
cluelessness, the dangerousness and
the flat-out lunacy of some of this
stuff, the real problem with all of this
advice is that it's based on a fallacy.
A puppy's nipping isn't a behavioral
problem; it's a physical problem. Just
like babies, puppies teethe. They nip
because the pressure provides relief
from the pain. So the objective isn't
to punish the dog or to deter the

undeterrable. Your job as the pup's
guardian and as someone who loves
this little creature is to provide him
with something that will offer even
more relief than your fingers or the
leg of that dining chair.
Ice chips and frozen treats help.
But one of the most effective tools
costs little to nothing and works
beautifully: the frozen washcloth.
If you have a teething puppy in the
house, wet a handful of washcloths
and put them in the freezer. When
your pup starts nipping -- and he will
because it's perfectly natural -- give
him a frozen washcloth to chew on.
The cold will feel good against his
sore gums as it works as a numbing
If only there were something equally
effective at silencing the passers-on
of bad advice.
