The Youth Arts Corps helped 17 year old Tasmond Johnson
funnel her passion. Johnson, who studies photography with
local artist Alex McKnight, says the Corps has given her art
direction. "When I came into the program," Johnson remem-
bers, "I was just shooting things. I knew I wanted to express
myself but I didn't know how." McKnight has taught John-
son how to develop film in the Corps' darkroom and has also
helped her refine her technique.

Springfest Cancelled by City Staff
By Greg Stemm
Springfest, the popular City of Gulfport sponsored annual street
festival typically held near Easter, was cancelled by city staff last
month without council approval. A move that was not communicat-
ed to the body until one of its members brought it up at the Febru-
ary 6th meeting. The event was an approved line item in the 2006-
2007 budget and was originally scheduled for Saturday, April 7th.
Council member Michele King said she asked city staff if the
event had been cancelled during the "Other Business" agenda item,
which she noted is the only time that Sunshine laws allow her to
have any conversation with other elected officials on the council.
"I had heard an unconfirmed report of the cancellation
at a chamber of commerce meeting back in January," said
King. "I also had a conversation with the city clerk and she
told me it had been removed from the calendar of events, but
since it was never brought to the council for approval I want-
ed to be sure that other council members were aware of it'
Jim O'Reilly, Director of Leisure Services, told the council th
he had made the decision to cancel the event because of budget c(
siderations. O'Reilly said he was trying to follow the spirit of
direction council had given him to slash overtime personnel cosV
across the board for all city sponsored and co-sponsored events
by 50 percent, but to do it in a way that would protect'and pre-
serve activities presented by civic and community organizations.
"I was afraid that from looking at the way the budget was al-
ready playing out I was soon going to be in the position where
I'd have to go to various groups like the chamber, the Mer-
chants Association, the Historical Society and others and tell
them they'd have to chose just one or two events that the City
could support within the budget constraints," said O'Reilly.

Springfest, from front page
"I thought it best to cancel one
solely City sponsored event than
have to ask community organiza-
tions to possibly cancel events upon
which they depend for revenue."
"I certainly didn't want to make staff
look bad," said King. "I believe.Jim's
motive was pure and that he truly did
have the best interest of community
organizations at heart. But it's inap-
propriate for staff to be canceling City
sponsored events. Council passed a
budget that included Springfest as
well as a directive to cut personnel
costs across the board. If we didn't
have the money to do that, then Coun-
cil should have been advised and giv-
en the opportunity to find solutions."
'City manager Tom Brobeil said he had
approved the cancellation of Spring-
fest, but agreed the way it was handled
was inappropriate and apologized to
the Council at the February 6 meeting.
"Council cut the event budget in half
without really looking at the way dif-
ferent events would be impacted. We
were finding that the across the board
cut Council had directed wasn't work-
ing well for a number of reasons," said
Brobeil. "For example, if you have an
event at the Casino where you only
have two people scheduled and you
cut one of them, then you literally
can't lift and move tables. So we were
already starting to get all sorts of
budget overruns that would make the
intention of slashing costs irrelevant.
But what we should have done
was come to Council with this pro-
posal to cut Springfest or to recon-
sider other budget options. It was
inexcuseable that we didn't do that





















Gabber February 15 February 21, 2007


and I'm sorry for that oversight. I'm
taking actions to make sure that
never happens again," said Brobeil.
Some don't see the motives behind
Springfest's cancellation as so pure.
"I believe in my heart that both
the cancellation of Springfest as
well as the cancellation of the 4th
of July Parade was political retribu-
tion and further that it is part of an
underlying goal that the City has to
shutter downtown and redevelop it
for more taxable income," said Rick
Gilbert, owner of Gulfport Green
Florist at 2820 Beach Boulevard.
Gilbert was an outspoken critic
of many of the City's budget deci-
sions during the public hearings last
Fall. He was also expressed many
concerns to Council about the down-
town area as an official spokesperson
for the Downtown Merchants As-
sociation, an organization in which
he says he is no longer affliliated.
Gilbert pointed out that the City
spent more money on overtime
for one police dispatcher last year
than the entire cost of producing
Springfest. "It's just poor man-
agement and budgeting," he said.
"That's just ridiculous," said Bro-


beil. "Everything this Council and
others before it have done has been
to preserve and protect the charac-
ter of the downtown area. Anyone
who thinks otherwise hasn't been
paying attention to the meetings."
"Everything that Gulfport's elected
officials and City staff has done in
the past 15 years has been motivated
by a desire to keep rampant develop-
ment at bay in our city," said King.
"I've personally encouraged business-
es downtown to consider having the
district deemed historic. I certainly
don't believe there was any hidden
conspiracy in the actions taken by
City staff in canceling Springfest."
Early this week, the Gulfport
Chamber approached the City with
a plan to co-sponsor the event, which
may save it regardless of motive
or the way that it was cancelled.
'That would be a win-win for every-
one," said King. "Gulfport residents
would still get to enjoy Springfest, the
City could still save money and the
Chamber would recoup the revenue it
stands to lose from its Business Show-
case that has traditionally been part
of the event. I think it's a great idea."

Penny for Pinellas
Up for Renewal
Are you aware of what the Penny
for Pinellas has done for our com-
munity? The Penny is a one-cent
sales tax that funds new capital
projects all across Pinellas County.
Ever since voters first approved the
Penny in 1989, it has added value
to our county with projects like the
Bayside Bridge and Pinellas Trail.
On March 13, 2007, voters will be
asked to renew the Penny for an-
other ten years. It's important to
remember that this is not a new tax
- it is a renewal of a one-cent sales
tax paid by all who spend money
in the County, including tourists
and other visitors who contrib-
ute approximately one third of the
Penny revenue. The Penny for Pi-
nellas funds these projects without
relying on higher property taxes
to make Pinellas County a better
place to live, work and visit. A re-
newal of the Penny would provide
funding for some exciting future
projects like a new expressway
linking US 19 to 1-275 without any
stops, land for affordable housing,
a coordinated emergency radio sys-
tem, more hurricane shelter space
and increased public access to our
beaches. Please visit www.pinellas-
county.org/penny to find out more
information about past and future
projects and see what our citizens
have to say about the Penny. You
can also visit the City of Gulfport's
website at www.ci.gulfport.fl.us and
see what the Penny has done for
Gulfport. And don't forget to vote
on March 13, 2007.

Gulfport Chamber and City May Co-Sponsor Springfest


By Greg Stemm
City and Chamber officials have
both confirmed they have entered
into discussions about the two enti-
ties co-sponsoring Gulfport's annual
Springfest celebration, potentially
saving it from the budget chopping
block. Details of the proposal are
still being worked out between the
two entities and officials say plans
call for a presentation to City Coun-
cil for consideration at the sched-
uled February 20 Council meeting.
Springfest was recently cancelled
by City staff in a budget adjustment
move that did not follow Council ap-
proval protocol. Council was only
made aware of the action when Coun-
cil member Michele King brought up
the issue at the February 6 meet-
ing. Since then there have numer-
ous concerns expressed by down-
town merchants and community
organizations about the economic
impact of eliminating the popular
annual celebration. Attendance es-
timates from previous years have
ranged from 1,500 to nearly 10,000.
"Representatives from the Cham-
ber approached the City with the
idea of a co-sponsored event on
Monday," said Jim O'Reilly, direc-
tor of leisure service for the City.
"They have a very intriguing plan
that would realign some of their

events, save the City money and al-
low for a public-private partnership
to keep Springfest. It really seems
to be a win-win idea for everyone."
"While the Gulfport business com-
munity is certainly sensitive to the
budget problems the City is facing,
we were deeply concerned about the
possibility of eliminating Spring-
fest," said Lori Rosso, the Chamber's
newly elected president and owner
of the Seabreeze Manor Bed and
Breakfast. "Our downtown mer-
chants have been struggling with all
sorts of issues including skyrocket-
ing insurance and property taxes.
Right now, they need to have every
bit bf support we can give them."
According to Rosso, the plan in-
cludes the Chamber taking over the
responsibilities of recruiting ven-
dors, scheduling and paying for the
entertainment and working closely
with the City to coordinate the lo-
gistics of the event. Chamber volun-
teers would help eliminate the need
for an overt number of City person-
nel assigned to work the day of the
event. The proposed date of the re-
vived Springfest would be Saturday,
April 28. The event is typically ear-
lier in the Spring, but the later date
would afford the Chamber more time
to adequately produce the event.
O'Reilly said the plan calls for the

City to p~ay for a stage and sound
system and any electricity needed
for the stage or in limited offerings
to vendors. The City would coor-
dinate the closing of streets, police
protection and sanitation needs.
The savings realized by removing
costs for coordinating vendor recruit-
ment, entertainment and on-site
personnel needs are not yet known.
Rosso said the Chamber's plan will
require some realignment of resources
and the need to move the highly pop-
ular Pink Flamingo Tour of Homes to
a Fall date from its traditional Spring
venue. Currently the Chamber plans
call for moving the Tour of Homes to
Saturday, November 3, 2007 which
was originally scheduled to host the
Taste of Gulfport event. The Taste of
Gulfport would be eliminated. Rosso
said the new Chamber board of direc-
tors had already been discussing re-
moving the Taste of Gulfport which
has been a labor-intensive event for
the organization producing little
revenue and disappointing crowds.
O'Reilly said the elimination
of the Taste would further save
the City money in its events bud-
get, although he did not imme-
diately have a dollar amount..
"This is a great idea partnering to-
gether to realign resources in support
of the most successful and popular
events," said Tom Brobeil, city man-
ager. "We're very hopeful that once all
the details are worked out Council will
like this arrangement and approve it."
Rosso noted that creative solutions
to community issues like this one are
only possible because of the strong ef-
forts on the part of both the Chamber
and the City to forge a working rela-
tionship that integrates Gulfport's re-
sources ratherthan overextends them.
"The City has been very receptive
over the past several years to foster-
ing an ongoing positive dialog with
the Chamber," said Rosso. "We're
worked together on everything from
Hurricane Katrina relief efforts, to
the defeat of proposed County Char-
ter changes which would have signifi-
cantly impact our community, to co-
ordinating the logistics of a live four
hour television broadcast with Chan-
nel 13. When the public and private
sector work together to find answers to
community problems, everyone wins."

"Get Rescued...In Gulfport"


Organizer Hopes to

















% :.





Kate Bradshaw
Lynda Shehan has been working
since September to organize "Get
Rescued...In Gulfport," an all-day
benefit for pet rescues that will take
place Saturday, February 171' on
Beach Blvd. between 28th and 29th
Streets.
The festival's day events include two
fashion shows-one for pets and one
for humans, raffles, silent auctions,
dog training tips, opportunities to
adopt a pet, and other happenings.
Local vendors will sell food, drink,
and wares. A wine tasting will take
place Saturday evening at the Sea
Breeze Manor'Bed & Breakfast Inn
at 5701 Shore Blvd.
Shehan, who has been involved
with pet rescues for fifteen years,
said that the aim of the event is to
raise money and awareness for local
pet rescues, including dachshund,
poodle, Labrador, Chihuahua and


Raise Awareness
beagle rescues, as well as Save our
Strays.
Pet rescues usually deal with a single
breed. Rescue workers take in stray
or abandoned animals and pay to
have them spayed or neutered. They
take care of any shots or operations
the animal might need prior to
adoption. They often, Shehan said,
do background checks on potential
adopters to assure safe, happy homes
for the animals. Adoption fees vary,
but are often small compared to
the money spent on operations and
immunizations.
"A lot if times, the rescues are
individuals who register with the
state," Shehan said. Since operating
a pet rescue with few or no fellow
volunteers (no pet rescue workers
make money from their efforts) may
be expensive and time consuming,
she said she hopes that Saturday's
event will unite pet rescuers in the
Bay Area and abroad. If nothing else,
Shehan hopes that "Get Rescued"
will change at least one life:
"If this event does nothing more
than find a wonderful home for a
homeless animal, then we've done
our job," she said.
She also sees the event as an
opportunity to showcase Gulfport to
animal lovers who might otherwise
miss,out on the small town's breezy
charm.
Shehan, who has three Chihuahuas
adopted from a local Chihuahua
rescue chapter, sees her involvement
with animal rescues as a way to do
her part in making the world a better
place.
"If you help animals, you help
people," she said.

How Should My Business
Be Set Up?
Part I
Our office has had the pleasure of
advising and counseling numerous
clients concerning how to legally set
up a new business venture. As a re-
sult, five (5) different choices of the
types of business entities that may e
utilized will be presented in this ar-
ticle and our next article. The five (5)
basic choices which an entrepreneur
or new business owner may wish to
consider are:
A. Sole Proprietorship;
B. General Partnership;
C. Limited Partnership;
D. Corporation; and
E. "S" Corporation.
In this article, we will examine the
general legal requirements of a sole
proprietorship and a general partner-
ship.

A. Sole Proprietorship '
1. A sole proprietorship is an unin-
corporated business owned by a sin-
gle individual. A sole proprietorship
is not a legal entity separate from its
owner.
2. The owner of a sole proprietorship
has unlimited liability for the debts
and obligations of the business. The
owner, therefore, must rely on per-
sonal assets or insurance for protec-
tion against creditors.
3. For income tax purposes, income
and loss of the sole proprietorship
passes directly to the sole proprietor
and is reported on his individual in-
come tax return.
4. No special organizational docu-
ments are necessary to begin business
as a sole proprietorship.
5. The advantage of a sole proprietor-
ship is that it is a simple means of be-
ginning a business.
6. In Florida, an individual who en-
gages in business has a sole propri-
etorship under a fictitious name must
register the fictitious name with the
Florida Secretary of State's office in
Tallahassee, Florida.
B. General Partnership
1. A partnership is an unincorpo-
rated association of two or more indi-

* Free Blood Pressure and

Cholesterol Checks


viduals, corporations or other entities
engaging in business for a profit.
2. Like a sole proprietorship, a gen-
eral partnership is not a separate le-
gal entity. Each partner in a general
partnership is personally liable for
the partnership liabilities.
3. A general partnership must file a
separate income tax return for federal
income tax purposes. However, this is
merely an information return. Gener-
ally, all income passes to the general
partners and is reported on their indi-
vidual income tax returns. Losses are
also passed through, subject to limi-
tations, which will be made stricter if
proposed changes in the tax laws are
implemented.
4. Although no written documenta-
tion is necessary to form a general
partnership, normally the rights and
obligations of the various partners
(including their shares of income,
losses, and cash distributed by the
partnership) are specified in a written
partnership agreement. The partner-
ship agreement may also specify the
manner in which the business is to be
operated, and may designate a man-
aging general partner who serves the
function of a chief executive officer.
Generally, in the absence of contrary
provisions in the partnership agree-
ment, the business affairs of the part-
nership are governed by a majority
vote of the partners.
5. Generally, the transfer of a part-
nership interest is more difficult than
a transfer of corporate stock. restric-
tions on the transferability of a part-
nership interest may be specified
.in the partnership agreement, and
transfers normally require the con-
sent of the other partners.
6. In Florida, a general partnership
is required to file a fictitious name
registration.
7. Generally, the death, insanity,
or withdrawal of a general partner
from the partnership "dissolves" the
partnership, although the remaining
partners may elect to continue the
partnership business in a new part-
nership.
8. Generally, each general partner is
an agent of the partnership and has
the power to bind the partnership.

Gulfport Presbyterian
Celebrates 60 Years
In 1917 an Independent Church was
built on the corner of 54th St. and
27th Ave. So. by The Rev. James T.
McLean. In 1947 it became a Pres-
byterian church. Since then, 15 min-
isters have served this church. The
present church was dedicated in 1963
and the old church was removed.
Over the years we have taken part
in many projects such as helping tor-
nado and hurricane victims, help for
the needy, Terrific Tuesday (an after
school program), Crop Walk, CUCA,
sponsored a Vietnam orphan, served
lunch to seniors, had Scout troops and
many other endeavors.
On Feb. 18th we will celebrate our
60th Anniversary and we invite every-
one to come join us for church service
at 10:30 a.m. to rejoice in this historic
occasion.

Learning the Arts
By Cathy Salustri
"I'm already at a three."
"Well, Tasmon, it goes to five."
Two things about this exchange
stand out: one, the entire conver-
sation dealt with actual darkroom
equipment and a photography stu-
dent, and two, the students are local
high school students getting a free
art education from local working
artists- and any student can get the
same training.
Potters, graphic artists, quilters,
and photographers are turning out
a new generation of artists in the
middle of one of St. Petersburg's
less desirable neighborhoods. At the
Wildwood Center at 1000 28th Street
South, the Youth Arts Corps offers
free art classes for teens as well as
free quilting and sewing classes for
girls 8 17.
Family Resources funds the work-
shops, which encompass arts curric-
ulums from theatre to painting, and
the city of St. Pete has also helped
out by offering space and incorporat-
ing kilns and a darkroom into the


Wildwood building design.
Youth Arts Corps director Mary Ann
Assiff stresses that the Corps focuses
on teaching every student skills they
can use at any job, such as interview-
ing skills, teamwork, and creativity.
Many of the students will most likely
not go on to a professional art career,
Assiff says, although several have
gone on to art colleges.
Tasmond Johnson studies pho-
tography with Alex McKnight. She
started at the program at her moth-
er's urging.
"She knew I love art a lot, and she
kept telling me about it, and when
we moved down here I decided to
give it a chance. I just fell in love
with it."
Johnson attends the medical pro-
gramat Palm Harbor University
High School. As a child she wanted
to play for the WNBA or become a
pediatrician; she enrolled at Palm
Harbor University High School to
pursue the latter ambition. She
found that, despite her high hopes,
the program didn't meet up with her
childhood expectations.
"I was enthusiastic but I didn't find
myself falling in love. When I took

the art classes I fell in love with
them."
Johnson has changed career plans;
at 17, she still attends the medical
program, but she's hoping to make
her living in art- even if it means less
money than the medical field.
"Really, the money doesn't matter
that much. I have found my passion
with art." She's considering graphic
design as a career as well as other
arts-related jobs.
Teens who participate in the Arts
Corps can take a basic art skills test
and get hired as apprentices for arts
classes taught at the Center, work-
ing under the artists teaching the
classes. The classes run year round.
"The arts can have an impact with
young people at risk of entering the
juvenile system," Assiff says, ex-
plaining why the Corps works out of
the Wildwood Center. The Wildwood
ZIP code- 33712- has a high percent-
age of at risk teens.
Although created for at risk teens,
any teen willing to come to the Wild-
wood Center can study under local
working potters, actors, poets, and
painters- for free.
"Our mission," Assiff says "is to help
young people reach their potential."

importance of eye sight. The cam-
paign encourages those age 65 and
older to call EyeCare America's Se-
niors EyeCare Program to see if they
qualify for a free exam.
EyeCare America's national health

referral for an eye exam and care,
call 1-800-222-EYES (3937). The

Golf Pro, from front page
for this Hooters Tour event. When
you consider all the golf greats
that have played this course in
tournaments through the years
like Nicklaus, Palmer, Player and
Trevino, it is amazing that Kyle's
first round 63 set the competitive
course record for Rio Pinar.
In high school, Kyle won the
District Championship for Pinel-
las County two years in a row.
He is a five time consecutive year
champion at Pasadena Yacht and
Country Club and was the Fresh-
man of the Year for the Sunshine
State Conference when he attend-
ed Eckerd College. He qualified for
the U. S. Amateur Championship
at Winged Foot in 2004 and this
past December advanced to the
final round of the Q-School tour-
nament for the PGA Tour. That
Q-School accomplishment gives
him provisional status on the Na-
tionwide Tour for 2007 that begins
in March.
Kyle is a fifth generation Gulf-
porter. He is the son of archi-


tect Vaughn McUarthy and Desi
Caldwell McCarthy who is a sales
associate and office manager at the
family business, Caldwell Realty.
Additionally, Kyle is a grandson
of R.W. 'Bob' and Adele Caldwell,
Jr., a great grandson of company
founder, R.W. Caldwell, and a
great great grandson of George
and Abigail Jarrell who ran the
Gulfport Market in the 1920s, '30s
and '40s in the 2800 block of Beach
Boulevard in the one story section
of the gorgeous new La Fogata
restaurant that opens in March.
The Jarrell's daughter, Gail, mar-
ried the original R.W. Caldwell.
Kyle is engaged to fellow Eckerd
alumna Becca Thomas who is also
a sales associate at Caldwell Re-
alty and a sailing instructor at the
St. Petersburg Yacht Club.
Congratulations are indeed in or-
der for Gulfport's best golfer ever.
We all look forward to following
and enjoying the future successes
of Gulfport's Kyle McCarthy. Go
get 'em Kyle!

deep, or so, used for fishing and boating
and other recreational pursuits, and
home to lots of sea life, including
clams, for which it was named, and
even visiting sea mammals. Not so
anymore.
It's much too shallow. The once
abundant clams are now few and far
between. Fish are scarce and larger
mammals are practically nonexistent.
Neighbors say they haven't seen a
dolphin all winter. Boats can barely
get in and out at high tide.
Some of the sediment that has filled
Clam Bayou has likely come from
natural sources, coming in on the tide
and settling in the wider part of the
bayou. But much of it undoubtedly
comes from St. Petersburg, washing
into the water, along with the trash,
from the city's drainage system.
So it seemed logical when Swiftmud
planned to dredge the bayou back
down to its original sandy bottom.
Now, their scientists are saying
that it isn't necessary, that the bayou
is healthy, that core sampling has
revealed natural processes going on in
the silty bayou bottom.
And Swiftmud is saying that their
responsibility and concern is for the
environment, not for the recreational
use of Clam Bayou.
And the people who manage the
state's aquatic areas are saying that
they have not authorized the dredging
of an estuary in 40 years and are not
likely to do so now which may or may
not have something to do with the
change in tune by Swiftmud and its
scientists.
And the price tag for dredging? About
$3 million or so.
So that is where things stand now.
The project to fix St. Petersburg's
drainage system into Clam Bayou is
ongoing and, as far as I know, everyone
expects it to be completed, eventually.
Not soon enough, but eventually.
But a plan to clean out 50 years' worth
of accumulated trash and sediment
from the bottom of Clam Bayou? It
doesn't seem to be on anyone's to-
do list, except maybe some Gulfport
residents and the members of Water
Watch and a couple of City Council
members.
Maybe the visit a couple of weeks
ago by representatives of Senator
Bill Nelson and the Army Corps of
Engineers will help. We'll have to wait
and see.

for our town.
What can Christine do for you?
Candidate for Gulfport City Council, Ward II
While we, the citizens, struggle with rising taxes and rising
homeowners insurance, the City of Gulfport wastes our tax
dollars. For example $400,000 was spent last fiscal year on
overtime for 114 of their employees. That means that 63%
of all employees got part of that $400,000. The lions share,
$176,000, was paid to just 14 employees. Total overtime for
the 14 averaged $12,600 per person or $31.00 per hour.
Fiscal responsibility or gross mismanagement? I am corn-
mitteed to bringing the budget under control. Let me be
your voice in City Hall. I have a clear message and a clear
plan. I will work for you. Together we can stop this waste.

What is the reason King, the incumbent, failed to disclose 6 secondary sources of income on her
Statement of Financial Interest Form? The income she receives from the City of Gulfport for
being on council, the income from 4 rental properties owned near the marina and the rental
income from "a private one acre hilltop estate" in Puerto Rico. Cas Serenity, on "the enchanted
island of Vieques", is listed for rent for $1600-$2400 per week. King's home phone number is the
only contact number listed in the ad. The ad also asks the reader to "check out our summer rentals
on Cape Cod". What else is she hiding? You deserve to know the truth.

Gulfport and Childs Park Fight Crime Together


By Cathy Salustri

At the monthly Gulfport
Crime Watch meeting, con-
cerned citizens welcomed
a new component into the
mix: representatives from
Child's Park.
Mrs. Cora Patterson, a
Child's Park resident and
the head of Child's Park
Crime Watch, participated
in the meeting. Several
Child's Park residents also
attended.
"We are more than happy
to have you here and more

Library, from front page
The Foundation was created in
1995 with the primary object of sup-
porting the Gulfport Public Library.
The foundation has raised money
for the Library through the sale of
engraved bricks, through donations
made in memorial, and through es-
tate gifts.
The Foundation has ceased opera-
tion and all assets have been turned
over to the City of Gulfport in ac-
cordance with the Foundation's by-
laws.
The estate of Edna Sandor repre-
sents the single largest donation to
the Foundation. In honor of Edna
Sandor, a stained glass panel of an
art deco lady with a hat (Edna's
signature fashion statement) was
commissioned to hang in memory
of Edna in the reading area of the
Library.
The art deco Lady with a Hat was de-
signed by Wayne Smith. Wayne was
born in Buffalo, New York and grew
up in Tampa and St. Petersburg. Af-
ter graduating from High School, he
joined the navy and served in active
duty from 1968 to 1973. Following
his military career, he finished his
college degree. A move to Key West
gave him the opportunity to work
with locally renowned stained glass
artist Keith Bronson. Serving as his
special apprentice fdr over a year
provided Wayne the chance to learn
a wide variety of stained glass tech-
niques and unique designs. Pick-
ing up where Keith left off, Wayne's
custom design work and unique
composition, for the past 28 years,
has earned him special recognition
for exquisite stained glass creations
in the Key West art community. In
2006, Wayne returned to St. Peters-
burg to live and continue his work in
glass. Wayne is a respected member
of the Gallery Key West and in the T.
Horn Gallery in Gulfport, Florida.
The stained glass artwork will hang
in one of the floor to ceiling windows
in the Library.

Reduce Your
Electric Bill
During the winter months, set your
thermostat at the lowest comfortable
setting. Progress Energy recommends
setting the temperature at 70 degrees
Fahrenheit during the day and 60 to
65 degrees Fahrenheit at night. You
can save 7 to 10 percent on your heat-
ing costs for each degree below 70.
If your furnace or air conditioner
is over 10 years old, consider replac-
ing it with an energy-efficient heat
pump.
]Be sure the filters in your heating
system are clean. Dirty filters will in-
crease heating costs.
Caulk and weather-strip any leaky
windows and doors.
Open drapes and shades on the sun-
ny side of your house to help warm the
home during the day. Close drapes
and shades at night to cut heat loss.


Make sure your home is properly
insulated. Progress Energy recom-
mends R-19 to R-30 insulation for
ceilings, R-11 for floors (suspended
frame only), R-11 for frame walls and
R-5 for concrete block.
Using a portable heater for "spot"
heating lets you lower the tempera-
ture in the rest of the house. However,
using it too much can be very costly!
One 1500-watt resistance heater op-
erating 24 hours a day for a month
would cost more than $80.
Reduce hot water used for washing
clothes. Install low-flow showerheads
and faucet aerators to reduce hot wa-
ter use.
Switch to fluorescent bulbs for areas
of constant use, such as the kitchen.
Turn off all small electrical equip-
ment, such as radios, VCRs or TVs
when not in use. Turn off the lights
when leaving an empty room.
If you have a fireplace, close the

Kumon Gives Students Academic Alternative


By Cathy Salustri

With growing classroom sizes,
often struggling students
can fall behind in school
and gifted children can become dis-
interested and crave more challeng-
ing work.
Kumon Math and Reading Centers
can assist those students who may
be struggling in school and need
to catch up, as well as those who
are seeking enrichment and want
to advance. Designed for students
from pre-school to college level, Ku-
mon helps children master and ad-
vance in math and reading at their*
own ability level, not by their age or
grade level. Children in the program
gain the much needed confidence to
achieve success in school and prog-
ress according to their ability.
"Education is the key to success,"
said Giti Reavill-Kiewiet of the Ku-
mon Math and Reading Center of
Saint Petersburg. "Through inde-
pendent self-learning, I help and in-
spire students to discover their true
potential to achieve their goals and
enjoy learning."
Parents around the world have
turned to Kumon Method since its
development in 1958. Millions of stu-
dents have benefited from the sup-
plemental education program, which
promotes independent study for chil-
dren of all ages and abilities.
Students begin the Kumon program
at a comfortable starting point and
work independently on daily work-
sheets that follow a naturally co-
herent logical progression. To build
confidence and self-learning skills,.
children advance at their own pace
in the Kumon math and reading
curriculum. Most students attend
the Kumon Math and Reading Cen-
ter twice a week all year round and
complete brief daily assignments on
their own the rest of the week.
In addition to helping students
grasp the basics and build a strong
academic foundation, the daily
timed assignments enable students
to become thoroughly accustomed
to working under test-taking condi-
tions, developing key time manage-
ment and problem-solving skills.
Students must achieve 100 percent

dena. The Center welcomes students from preschool through high school.


accuracy of each concept in the Ku-
mon program before learning a new
one and moving ahead to the next
level.
The Kumon program was designed to
supplement student's school curricu-
lum. One goal of the Kumon program
is to help children reach Algebra by
5th grade. Many Kumon students
end up surpassing their peers and
working beyond their grade level as
they gain confidence to move ahead.
Participants of the Kumon program
have been proven to score signifi-
cantly higher than the average US
7th 12th grade student.
Kumon also offers Junior Kumon,
a special beginning level math and
reading program for preschool and
kindergarten students. The goal of
the program is to develop a child's
love of learning at an early age. Ju-
nior Kumon can help students ac-
quire pre-literacy and pre-numeracy
skills, laying the foundation for early
academic achievement.
Prior to becoming a Kumon Instruc-
tor, Giti Reavill-Kiewiet was a math


teacher for 12 years and taught
middle and high school students.
She holds a Bachelor of Arts degree
in Education from the University of
North Florida, and is a Florida Certi-
fied teacher.
The Kuimon Math and Reading Cen-
ter of Saint Petersburg is open for
Kumon and Junior Kumon students
on Monday and Thursdays from
3:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. For more in-
formation or to schedule a free place-
ment test for your child, call (727)
