IIm -ii-i *I Gulfport Business of the Year
Photo Courtest Newton Wengay

Dolly Tickell (center), of Act One Promotions, accepts the Gulfport
Chamber of Commerce Business of the Year Award from Greg Stemm,
executive director (left) and Lori Rosso, president. The award was
presented at the Chamber's 20th Annual Volunteer and Membership
Appreciation Breakfast held at the Gulfport Casino on Thursday, Feb-
ruary 15. Rosso said that the Chamber had chosen Act One Promo-
tions because of "...Dolly's long term commitment to this community.
She regularly helps schedule entertainment at various city and com-
munity sponsored events, is a past president of the Chamber, and has
dedicated thousands of volunteer hours to a wide range of Gulfport
S-organizations over many years. It would be very difficult to find as big
a Gulfport promoter as Dolly."


Gulfport Violent Crime Down,

Burglaries Increase
The Gulfport Police Department reports that violent crimes decreased
almost 40% last year, but all types of burglary has increased by 30%.
Burglary arrests increased more than 10% from two years ago, but
despite an increase in burglaries, the crime rate in the city has steadi-
ly decreased over the past several years.
In lieu of better crime rates the Gulfport Police Department still
called the burglary increase "unacceptable" and said that its Patrol
Division and Investigations have developed strategies to decrease
burglaries.
Of seven reported burglaries last week, only one of the home and ve-
hicles had locked doors. The other cars and one homes were unlocked
or had open doors.
The police say residents can help prevent burglaries by locking ve-
hicles, closing garages, and deadbolting homes.


Signs, Signs, Everywhere
People concerned about the city budget may want to consider manpow-
er spent on political signs. Gulfport code enforcement officials report
spending roughly five hours a week dealing with campaign sign compli-
ance issues. Inspectors say that the most frequent violations include
signs placed in the right-of-way.
Inspectors immediately remove signs placed in the right of way. Al-
though signs placed in the right-of-way generally get thrown out, code
enforcement officials keep local signs so people can come get them if
they want them back.
Just a reminder... each property may display one sign per candidate
or ballot item.

Springfest Decision on Hold
Gulfport City manager .Tom Brobeil told Council Tuesday that
he and city staff are reviewing the details of a revived Cham-
ber co-sponsored Springfest and that he would bring an offi-
cial proposal to Council at the next scheduled meeting on March 6.
Springfest was cancelled by city staff in January due to budget reasons, but
Council was not made aware of the move until the February 6 meeting, and then
only because of the inquiry of council member Michele King. Brobeil has apol-
ogized to the council for not presenting the cancellation to them for approval.
The Gulfport Chamber of Commerce has approached the City with
a plan for co-sponsorship of the event which would be held on Satur-
day, April 28. Chamber officials expressed concern that the delay in
council approval might not allow enough time to adequately produce
the event, but remain hopeful that details may still be worked out.

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 contribute
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.

CLAY POTS are heavy,
which prevents even
large plants from
tipping. Clay is porous.
which provides a drier
root environment,
meaning less
opportunity for root
diseases.
PLASTIC containers
retain moisture better
than clay. which is an
advantage in hot or dry
climates. Plastic pots
are tough and tolerate
freezing and thawing.

OR
CELL
PACKS


ii SAUCER


Containers should be large enough to provide room for soil, roots
and drainage. The smaller pots, pans and azalea pots are suitable
for propagating and growing young plants.


STANDARD POTS are at least
as deep as they are wide at the
rim. A standard-shaped pot is
a good choice for most plants.

AZALEA POTS are three-
fourths as tall as they are wide.
Azalea pots are inherently stable
because of their low center of
gravity and thus less likely to
tip over. Ideal for potted
flowering plants and foliage.
BULB or SEED PANS are one-
half as tall as they are wide at
the top: they are useful for
germinating seeds.


CELL PACKS come in modular
cells; each cell holds a single
plant, which encourages growth
and reduces the risk of root
injury when transplanting.

ROSE POT is one-third taller
than it is wide. It's used for
plants such as roses and
tomatoes, which have deep root
systems.
SAUCERS are available to
match clay or plastic pots. They
are useful for catching surplus
water.

in a Seminole retire-
S ment community
Woe .f with her husband
Herbert. Her living
room window over-
looks the traffic and
chain restaurants of
the Pinellas County
sprawl. But the con-

front hall closets
offer a view of the
world that is not like-
S, ly to parallel those
te of any closet within
a two hundred-mile
radius-excluding
museums.
Post collects tra-
ditional garb from
countries across the
globe.


25 countries," she
An embroidered vest from Thailand. said. It is likely that
her collection would
be more than twice that size had she unlimited space at her disposal.
Nations and regions represented in her collection include Korea, Ireland, Paki-
stan, Germany, Japan, Latvia, China, Norway, Scotland, and Florida (i.e. tradi-
tional Seminole dress).
She obtained some of these outfits, or "costumes," during her extensive world
travels as a representative of Florida at conferences of the Associated Country
Women of the World, the world's largest organization of and for rural women.
Others she came across through friends or word of mouth. The Latvian dress,
for example, was made by a dress maker in that country after she dined with
friends whose son was living in Latvia. The outfit comes with an ornate crown,
which is traditionally only worn by unmarried women. She picked up a Filipino
costume at an international folk fair in St. Petersburg, FL.
The ACWW conferences brought Post to Norway, England, Australia, South
Africa, Rhodesia, Ireland, Kenya, and a handful of other countries. Throughout
their travels, Post and her husband sought authentic experience over homog-
enous comfort:
"It's more fun staying on an ostrich farm in South Africa than it is staying at a
Hilton in Cape Town," she said.
Post first became interested in traditional clothing when she was given two
antique outfits as a teenager. The outfits dated back to the 19th century. As the
years went by, her collection grew to around 200 outfits from various historical
periods, including one dating back to the days of Martha Washington.
She would put on "historic costume shows," which are similar to fashion shows,
to display her collection. But when she moved to her current residence, she had
to give up some of her collection due to limited space. She donated much of it to
Florida State University.
Post still puts on "costume shows," only now, she features her international
collection. On Wednesday, February 21st she will be putting one on at Bickley
Park, 5640 Seminole Blvd in Seminole, at 1:00 p.m. She plans on modeling an
Indian sari.

Lil Deer has been ill for several months. Because of an illness that has
yet been fully diagnosed, she can only be upright and get around with a
wheelchair. The medical bills are becoming oppressive and she is losing
faith in the medical profession. She needs help, both financially and
spiritually. We have hopes that this benefit will help to defray her
medical costs and to re-ignite her faith.

THE

LAW


How Should My Business
Be Set Up?
Part 2
In our last article, we examined
together the general legal require-
ments of a sole proprietorship and
general partnership. In this article,
we will examine the general legal as-
pects of,a limited partnership and a
Florida Corporation.
A. Limited Partnership
1. A limited partnership is similar to
a general partnership. The primary
difference is that some partners are
designated as "limited" partners and,
as such, are normally not personally
liable for the debts and obligations
of the partnership, except to the ex-
tent of their contribution of capital
to the partnership. A limited partner
is a passive investor, and is prohib-
ited from participating actively in
the management of the partnership
business. If a limited partner par-
ticipates in management, she/he can
lose the benefit of limited liability
and, instead, be treated as a general
partner for purposes of determining
liability for partnership debts and
obligations.
2. A limited partnership must have
at least one general partner and at
least one limited partner. The gen-
eral partner of a limited partnership
has unlimited liability for the part-
nership's debts and obligations.


3. Like a general partnership, the
income of a limited partnership is
passed through the partners, and re-
ported on their individual income tax
returns.
4. A limited partnership is orga-
nized by filing a written certificate of
limited partnership in the Office of
the Secretary of State in Tallahassee,
Florida. Normally, the limited part-
ners are specified in the certificate
of limited partnership and in a sepa-
rate limited partnership agreement,
which may be more detailed than the
certificate of limited partnership. A
Florida limited partnership must file
an annual report and pay an annual
fee to the Florida Secretary of State,
and receive a certificate of authority
to conduct business as a limited part-
nership.
B. Corporation
1. A corporation is a separate legal
entity or "person" for purposes of both
state law and federal income tax law.
A, corporation may be formed by any
number of individuals, other corpora-
tions, or other entities.
2. The owners of a corporation are
"shareholders". Normally, business
policies are dictated by a board of
directors, which is selected by the
shareholders. In Florida, a corpora-
tion may have as few as one director.
Normally, directors are elected annu-
ally, at an annual meeting of share-
holders.
3. Normally, the routine operations
of the corporation are managed by
the corporation's officers, who are
elected periodically by the board of
directors. In Florida, a corporation
must have a president, secretary,
and treasurer, and may have one or

more vice presidents or assistant of-
ficers. One person may hold tow (2)
or more offices.
4. Corporations are required to hold
annual meetings of shareholders, at
which the shareholders may elect di-
rectors.
5. For federal income tax purposes,
a corporation is taxed as a separate
entity, and income and losses of the
corporation are not passed to its
shareholders, unless the corporation
makes an "S election".
6. A corporation is formed by fil-
ing a corporate charter, known as
"articles of incorporation," with the
office of the Secretary of State in
Tallahassee. The articles of incorpo-
ration must contain various informa-
tion specified by statute, including a
unique corporate name, a statement
of the number of shares of stock that
the corporation us authorized issue,
the par value (if any) of the stock, the
duration of the corporation (if other
than perpetual), the general purpos-
es for which the corporation is initial-
ly authorized (which may be stated to
include in the transaction of any or
all lawful business for which corpo-
rations may be incorporated under
Florida law), the name of an initial
registered office, the street address of
an initial registered office where ser-
vice of process can be made upon the
corporation, the name of directors,
and the name and street address of
the incorporator. The corporation is
required to file an annual report and
pay an annual fee to the Secretary of
State in order to maintain its stand-
ing as a corporation.
7. After the articles of incorporation
are formed, the board of directors
holds an initial organizational meet-
ing, at which it elects officers, adopts
bylaws, and takes other organiza-
tional actions. The bylaws consist of
a written document specifying the
"rules" under which the corporation
will be governed and managed.
8. Generally, ownership interests
in a corporation may be transferred
through a sale of stock, although the
transfer of stock may be restricted by
agreement or by law.

Eileen Navarro, treasurer of the Gulfport Public Library Foundation pre-
sented a check in the amount of $95,069.59 to Kathryn Smith, library admin-
istrator at the February 20 City Council meeting. The foundation was formed
in 1995 with the primary object of supporting the library, but has since ceased
operations and in accordance to the Foundation's bylaws all funds were turned
over to the City of Gulfport. A large portion of the amount donated came from
the estate of Edna Sandor who had contributed the single largest donation
to the Foundation. In honor of Sandor, a stained glass panel of an art deco
lady with a hat was commissioned and completed and will hang in reading
area of the Gulfport Library. Council approved a resolution creating a special
revenue fund for the donated funds. The resolution states that the funds may
only be used for items or services benefiting the library and approval for ex-
penditures may only be given my Council approval.

QUESTION: I plan to sell my
home on my own. How do I go
about setting the selling price?
ANSWER: If you try to sell your
own home, there's a better than even
chance that you'll set the wrong sell-
ing price which, by the way, is the
most important factor in the sales
process.
Most based their price on the only
known facts: original cost, improve-
ments and hoped-for profit. Then
they factor in what they think simi-
lar houses are bringing.
Unfortunately, the first three are


Poul Hornsleth
irrelevant and the fourth is highly
dubious. You only hear the asking
price not the selling price. Trust me.
Consult a local Realtor whose busi-
ness it is to know how much the
property can bring and will bring.
If there is anything we can do for you In
buying or selling real estate, please give
us a call. We're here to help! Thank you.

they were stepping on Beach Boulevard during
Saturday Stroll. Gulfport had quite a few four
legged friends show up for the extended Art-
Swalk on February 17th. The event lasted from
2-10pm with a special wine tasting, a dog fash-
ion show, and a silent auction to raise money
't^ P, for local nonprofit pet rescue groups. As well as
Si .- pet training tips and Micro Chipping, vendors
and artists focused on man's best friend with
: specialized dog bowls, leashes, and other must
40 . .. Rhonda Milash was more than excited to sup-
port the cause, especially with her rescued dog
SCasey Marie, "It was excellent. She was in her
prime and so friendly to everyone."
Casey Marie, adopted dog of Rhonda Milash, supported local nonprofit rescue shelters
together, while making new friends and showing off for the camera.

iThis N'That in
South Pasadena
By Sibylle Stajich
Civic Association
Steve Korn. a retired deputy
sheriff from PA, held an interest-
ing meeting for Metro Crime Pre-
vention of Florida on Wednesday,
Feb. 14th at Hisbiscus Hall. He
mentioned that the world as we
grew up in is not any more and
one has to be safer with height-
ened awareness and be proactive.
Beware of identity theft and never
give out any personal information
Over the phone. A shredder is an
excellent investment to dispose of
any personal papers. If one needs
a credit report, call 888-397-3742,
S900-685-1111 or 800-916-8800.
He mentioned security in single
homes can be well established by
hanging a "Beware of Dog" sign
and placing a large dog bowl and
chain by the front door which
should scare off burglars. Doors
should have a double cylinder
standard lock. peep holes and a
chain latch. Windows are best
made of shatterproof glass and
not the crank type. If you have an
alarm system, it must alert you.
For personal security, pepper
spray is best, not mace anymore.
Pepper spray is a military and
police spray. One can have a wall
socket lock and a fake can for jew-
elry to hide. After callng several
50/50 chances, everyone enjoyed
coffee and cookies donated by
Palms of Pasadena Hospital.

More Civic Association
As usual, the lasagna dinner on
Saturday, Feb. 10th was a big suc-
cess. The delicious meals served
with a salad, bread, soft drinks
or wine was enjoyed by 40 people,
most of whom stayed for 10 games
of Bingo afterwards. As one per-
son remarked "It is always such a
pleasant way to bring people to-
gether".

common sense" implying, I suppose,
that not all the current occupants of
City Hall possess those qualities.
Yarborough also makes what seems,
to me, to be a quirky set of pledges,
including promises to stay awake at
council meetings, to have an opinion
on everything, and to tell the truth.
He also says he will donate his salary
to save Springfest, request bonuses
for city employees who save the city
money, and protect our Gulfport way
of life. Underlying it all is evidence of
a strong sense of dissatisfaction with
City Council as it now exists, and with
the way the city is now doing business.
Christine Brown, another candidate
for the Ward 2 seat, has only run two
campaign ads, thus far, and the format
for both has been the same. At the
bottom is a list of her local activities and
volunteer work; it is a considerable list,
indeed. And in each ad, she addresses
a specific Gulfport issue (Clam Bayou,
wasteful spending) at some length
and then discusses what she would do
about it.
And she does something else in each
ad, something I've never seen in my
17 years in Gulfport. She aggressively
criticizes the Ward 2 incumbent in the
first ad for not showing enough interest
in Clam Bayou, in the second for not
declaring all of her sources of income.
I don't know where all this will lead,
but it's obvious that Brown means to
be taken seriously as a candidate who
intends to win, who has opinions on the
issues, and who is willing to fight.
Michele King, the incumbent in Ward
2, is in the same boat with the mayor.
She doesn't need to introduce herself
and can run on her "record of success"
(the human rights ordinance, standing
up to developers, the anti-drug "DAWG"
program, the beach trolley) and her
"vision for the future" (stronger zoning
laws, the greening of Gulfport). King
was the last of the candidates to enter
the advertising sweepstakes, running
her first ad last week. Maybe it's the
confidence of incumbency.
There you have it, the election
advertising so, far as I see it. It'll be
fun to watch the final weeks of the
campaign unfold. See you at the polls
on March 13.

for our town.

What can Christine do for you?
Candidate for Gulfport City Council, Ward II

A Mooring Field can benefit our waterfront significantly. An
effective Harbor Management Plan will address all issues
associated with a successful Mooring Field. Satisfied boaters
bring more boaters, word gets out and our waterfront
becomes a popular destination by land and sea. New
businesses open and the artists return. The Casinos' normal
$100,000 revenue loss is reversed. Gulfport will be widely
known as. a quaint, friendly waterfront village that provides
an escape from the daily pressures of everyday life. More
business and more commerce bring more revenue which
could equate to lower taxes for all citizens. I am confident
that we can transform opr waterfront into a success story.
After all, our city slogan is "The Gateway to the Gulf."

Ms. King, the incumbent, voted to close the beach to all boaters. Her action groups' #2 priority
for 2007 is to stop the Mooring Field. A nationally recognized boating magazine says Gulfport
is unfriendly to boaters because of negative comments made by King. She acknowledged that
she knew nothing about Mooring Fields, yet still voted against it. Is this a dereliction of duty?
King states on 4/7/06, the merchants are only renters, so they don't count. Is she trying to kill the
downtown? Is her crusade behind stopping the Mooring Field sacrificing the good of all citizens
for the wishes of a few potential waterfront real estate customers?

The Luckiest Coffee

Ahen I was in high school, my
friends and I did what all kids do
- looked for somewhere cool to hang
out. We had a little bar we drank
coffee at until the owners decided
that was no good for the older, drink-
ing clientele and kicked us out. Af-
ter that, we were out of luck.
Basically we ended up at Denny's.
Now, I've got nothing against Den-
ny's. It's great if you want a four-
course breakfast at 2 am. But, it's
not exactly "cool."
Back in those dark ages, St. Peters-
burg was woefully lacking in coffee
shops. This was long before Star-
bucks discovered our Bay area. I
only remember one place Mother's
Milk and it was way up in Clear-
water.
Times have changed. I'm old enough
to go wherever I want to. Frankly,
I'm too old to go to some places, but
that's another story. St. Petersburg,
in the downtown area alone, now
boasts "four Starbucks" as Mayor
Baker recently, and somewhat inac-
curately, announced, adding that he
felt this was a sign that the city had
arrived as a chic metropolis. I'm not


Shop in Town
sure I agree with Mayor Rick, but it
is nice that I can find a decaf Ameri-
cano just about anywhere these
days.
Now that I'm a student, I'm ever-
more on the lookout for a "cool" place..
to sit and read, write, or just plai'r
goof off. Starbucks aside, the down-
town area also has a smattering of
independent coffee houses to supply
the growing American need for ca
feine. I too, though I drink the low-
test variety, find myself seeking out
the bean.
But, I might as well save you the
guess work and tell you that my
new-favorite coffee house is Bohemia
on Central Avenue.
If we'd had a place like this back
in high school, we might have been a
lot cooler. Or, at least we would have
felt a lot cooler. But I digress...
Bohemia, as the name might imply,
is an independent coffee shop that
serves up what you would find at
any corporate spots, but with charm-
ingly-original size choices like small,
medium and large.
It's everything I love in a coffee shop
artsy, eclectic and a little bit gritty.


Rather than marketing their own
"line" of music, they play all sorts of
cool stuff. Just today I was grooving
to The Cure, The Smiths and New
Order (hey wait AM I still in high
school?). Well, I still love that music,
and so do a lot of us former nerds.
Sure there are a few drawbacks to
going "independent." There is a min-
imum charge for credit cards, and
you certainly won't find any inter-
net access (which is actually a good
thing, for me, as it keeps me on track
with my studies).
However, apart from the bratty
service you often find in a place as
"hip" as this, these folks are seri-
ously lacking in pretension. They
are totally cool. The other day, a girl
put herself in mortal peril atop the
most rickety ladder I have ever seen
- to plug an extension cord into a du-
bious outlet so that I might amuse
myself with my laptop. Lovely.
Inside you have the option of comfy
couches or tables and outside my
favorite part a huge patio, literally
twice the size of the shop, with a sea
of tables, benches and old-fashioned
bistro lights crisscrossed overhead.
At night, though I've only driven
by, it looks kind of like a twinkley,
Parisian caf6. I half-expect to find
Toulouse-Lautrec in the courtyard,
putting the final dabs of paint on a
poster for the Moulin Rouge.
Oh, and they have beer. Glittering,
frosty imported bottles some brands
even a beer snob like me didn't know
existed. Need I say more?
But, before you go rushing out to
Bohemia, taking up all the sweet
spots on the patio, I should warn
you. Just this morning I was sitting
- steamy Americano in hand, laptop
at the ready reveling in the sun-
shine. All was perfect.
Out of nowhere, it came. I thought
I had been assaulted by stray buck-
shot until I saw it. On my pants,
in my hair, and terribly close to my
full cup of coffee: bird crap. There, I
said it. Maybe you should just stay
home.
Of course, on the other hand, my
friends tell me it's a sign of good
luck.
We'll see.

The Renaissance Festival: Jousting, Dragons, and Wenches


By Cathy Salustri
Photos by Tom Gibson

WHO The Bay Area Re-
W l naissance Festival,
a 16th century village peppered with
over 300 peasants as well as King
Henry VIII and Queen Catherine.
Once a small-time affair in Largo.
the festival now draws actors from
across the country and guests from
around the state.

TJWHAT The Renais-
W HATJL sance Festival
has spent nearly 30 years perfect-
ing the 16th century. Once you cross
through the festival gates you return
to a simpler time. one complicated
only by things like the plague and a
marked lack of sanitatary sewers.
Once inside the medieval village
shopping, street performers, stage
shows, musical acts, and games await
you. Think of the whole event as the
state fair,
medieval
style. In-
stead of a
corn dog,
you get a
smoked
turkey leg,
and while
won't ride
the Gravi- '
tron, you
can ride in
a dragon. You can also try your hand
at archery, watch belly dancing gyp-
sies, or see a real joust.

WHEN The village
opens at 10
and closes at 6 every Saturday and
Sunday through April 1. They also
will open from 10 until 4 on Friday,
March 16.

WHERE At the
WHER Museum
of Science and Industry (MOSI) on
Fowler in Tampa. Take 275 north
to exit 51, turn right, and keep go-


ing until you see the signs or smell
smoked turkey legs.


JWHY Things to
HY do and
see abound here: you can
watch a tin foil artist cre-
ate a five headed dragon
or head over to the Flight
of the Raptor with Har-
ris hawks, owls, and fal-
cons in free flight While
adults can get their fill
of bawdy humor and
double entendre at many
of the stage shows. noth-
ing here screeches "keep
the kids


if1


t .te spirit ana attend in
costume.
SThe Festival keeps getting bet-
ter. A few yqirs back the Festival
parted ways with the City of Largo;
many bemoaned this as the end of
a longstanding local tradition. The
organizers, merchants, and actors
have proved over the past few years
that a new venue makes the Ren-
Fest more appealing, not less. The
MOSI grounds give grown men just
as much space to frolick in tights and
women just as much space to behave
like wenches.
The day's events culminate with the
joust, an essential part of the Ren-


i I
,6~silPI


Gabber February 22 February 28, 2007


Fest experience. It's the real thing; a
few years back the joust got so real
that one jouster got severely injured.
Thankfully, Festival organizers didn't
eliminate the
competition.
t Part of the
S Festival's ap-
peal comes
from not only
A returning
characters (I
Sent to the
college with
one of the
mummers,
S ( who had per-
formed with
the Festival
for years when
I met him.) but
new characters
every year.
Also of note- if
you bring your
pup's proof of
vaccination, y:u can bring him to the
festival.

O T Seeing the Empty
SHats perform. The
(Gulf port-rooted band travels across
the country, so their local gigs have
gotten somewhat limited. The Ren-
Fest has booked the Hats every day
ot the festive al. Last year fans had the
chance to hear unreleased music, and
most shows had standing room only.

WORS The disap-
SWORSTpearance of
Scotch Eggs. These hard boiled eggs
blanketed in breaded spicy sausage
were a reason to return to the festi-
val every year, but have disappeared
from the food carts.

for adults, with discounts for seniors,
students, and those who choose to
purchase on line at www.renais-
sancefest.com. Dogs cost a tiny bit
extra.

Yet to be Perfect
A note from the Publisher
By Ken Reichart
Over the years we have made our share of typographical errors in the Gab-
ber.
One that stays most fresh in my mind was the week that my first child,
Laura, was born (she's 14 now). The Friends of the Gulfport library inducted
their new slate of officers and asked me if they could get a photo in the Gab-
ber. I went to their meeting, snapped a few pictures, scribbled a few notes
and raced back to the office only to find that our new baby was on the way.
We dropped everything, and Deb and I headed for the hospital. That week
the headline on the front page read Fiends of the Gulfport Library Induce
New Officers.
The last few years the Gabber has been fortunate enough to have one of
its anonymous readers send weekly corrections. Each error is marked with
circles and arrows depicting typographical errors, dangling participles and
style marks I haven't seen in even the oldest stylebooks.
Recently our anonymous proofreader has gotten brave by sending e-mails.
Mr. Willard Goode is no longer anonymous.
Below is an unedited copy of his most recent correspondence.
I hope you find it as humorous as I did.
Dear Mr. Reichart, Please be advised that once again your paper
has two errors on the front page of your latest edition: (1) last para-
graph in the "Springfest" article...."they'd have to CHO(O)SE just
one or two events"...(2) in caption beneath photo of the photogra-
phy student...."17 year old" requires hyphens" (17-year-old). Check
the bottom of your front page for "thirty-eight years, for example.
The mayor's ad on page 39 should have an apostrophe between the
"g" and the "s" in Bill Young(')s name in the first starred paragraph Al-
so, the apostrophe in it's is not needed. The only time "its" receives
an apostrophe is when you are abbreviating "it is". I am sending un-
der separate cover a printout from The Apostrophe Protection Soci-
ety to help whoever of you edits this front page. I have offered several
times in the past to proofread your frontpiece. It is obvious to me that
there is no one in your employ who can do it correctly. Regards, WLG

Mr.Goode, we appreciate what you do for us. How many of the numerous
spelling and grammatical errors can you find in this submission?

ICT Reschedules
"Beach Bum"
Island.Community Theatre decided
this week to reschedule their origi-
nal production "A Beach Bum Home
Companion" for the 2007-08 season.
The original concept has undergone
several changes, starting as a collec-
tion of skits and songs. "We have
some great original material, but we
would have ended up with a four-
hour show," says ICT President Phil
Twitchell.
Rewrites continue on the work-in-
progress, handled by ICT Vice Presi-
dent Jeff Jensen and director Elaine
Cloud Goller. Area writers have also
contributed.
Show updates and announcements
for the Island Community Theatre
2007-08 season will be posted on
their website www.islandcommuni-
tytheatre.com.
Island Community Theatre typi-
cally holds meetings on the second
Monday of every month, but things
happen, so it is always wise to call
the ICT Hotline at 345-1474 to con-
firm the place and time.

Hotel Rwanda Hero
Shares Story
Paul Rusesabagina, whose story
was featured in the Academy Award
nominated movie Hotel Rwanda, will
be at USF St. Petersburg as a fea-
tured speaker, for the Explore the
World lecture series Sunday, Feb. 25
in the Campus Activities Center at
1 p.m. The lecture is free and open to
the public.
Rusesabagina, a native Rwandan,
has most recently gained interna-
tional recognition with the release of
the 2004 film Hotel Rwanda. The film
portrays his role in sheltering 1,260
Tutsis and moderate Hutus from be-'
ing slaughtered by the Interhamwe
militia in the 1994 Rwandan genocide.
He will be reflecting on and sharing
his experiences from that time.
"This is a wonderful opportunity for
'the community to hear, first-hand,
a genocide survivor's testimony of
courage and determination," said
David Schafer, executive director of
the Florida Holocaust Museum. "Mr.


Rusesabagina's story is a testament
that genocide in the world did not end
with the Holocaust. Indeed it contin-
ues even today in Darfur. That's why
our work to erase bigotry, anti-Semi-
tism and intolerance is in hopes that
there will be no future genocides."
Rusesabagina is the recipient of Im-
mortal Chaplains Prize for Humanity
(2000), National Civil Rights Muse-
um Award (2005) and the Presiden-
tial Medal of Freedom (2005).
Parking is available in the parking
garage located at 250 5th Avenue
South in downtown St. Petersburg.

Andrea Moore at 820-0100 ext. 232.

RosenMart.com: Online Shopping Made Easy


By Cathy Salustri

If you want to .get great deals on
gifts and things for your home-
without having to negotiate the
crowded aisles of chain discount
stores, check out RosenMart.com, a
locally owned and operated web site
that lets you shop from home.
RosenMart, owned and operated by
Hans Rosendahl, matches customers
with products they want at prices far
more reasonable than department
stores or specialty shops.
The Rosendahls call their company
a "web-based wholesale and retail
company". Web based sums up the
company nicely, because while they
do a huge amount of business over
the web, RosenMart also has an in-
credible amount of in-person busi-
ness.
That in-person business includes a
wide array of fundraisers and shows.
Twice monthly Hans has a show
outside of the Gulfport restaurant,
Cahill's. He also has shows outside
of the area and a goodly amount of
church fundraisers, proving that
while they run a business in the com-
munity, they also feel very strongly
about contributing to the commu-
nity.
Another unusual facet of this
web-based business? Hans has put
RosenMart's phone number on the
web site, and he answers all the
calls himself rather than referring
customers to a third-party customer
service center.
"I am the type of guy," Hans ex-
plains "who likes to do business the
old way." While the Rosendahls em-
brace the many ways the internet
makes their business possible, they
still insist on their customers being
able to talk to real people if they so
desire. Hans carries his phone with
him and answers all customer ser-
vice calls. Hans admits that occa-
sionally he does sleep and shower, so
there are times when the phone goes
to voice mail. But, he promises, once
he steps out of the shower and towels
off, he promptly returns all calls.
Now that you're convinced that you
want to shop at RosenMart.com, per-
haps now would be a superb time to
talk about some of the coolest things

of the reason RosenMart.com has succeeded. One lucky cus-
tomer won this laptop computer in RosenMart's last drawing.


they sell.
One of their best sellers is the
hammock chair, also called a swing
chair. I have one of these and love it;
nothing beats curling up in a ham-
mock chair on my front porch with a
book and a beer on a breezy summer
night. My friends think so, too, but
as I largely hang out with freelanc-
ers like myself, none of them want
to pay the $90 these chairs cost else-
where.
Enter RosenMart.com- they have
a swing chair at a normal price of
$49.95.
People with green thumbs who
want to showcase their yards go cra-
zy for RosenMart's solar products,
such as solar dragonfly and butterfly
lights that light up your yard or pa-
tio. These lights also change colors,
adding depth and interest to garden
lighting schemes.RosenMart also
sells traditional solar garden lights,
all very reasonably priced.
If you've ever driven by a roadside
Mexican pottery stand and wished
you could find some of the great
earthenware at a better price, click
on the lawn and garden section of
the web site. This section is pep-
pered with terra cotta, talavera, and
other earthenware items. They sell
a splashy talavera frog, the brightly

painted frogs you see hugging the
walls of many homes.
RosenMart also sells a plethora
of things that you can use in other
parts of your home- everything from
anklets (sterling silver) to a Zen ta-
ble water fountain. Shipping always
costs $3.30 per order, far less than
most internet-based businesses.
One final reason to give RosenMart.
com your business- every time you
order from Hans, he places your
name in his annual drawing for an
80 gig iPod, a Playstation 3, and a
RosenMart computer desk.
What more enticement do you need,
really?

Join Hans this Sunday at Gulf-
port's Art Village Courtyard,
where RosenMart will help spon-
sor the fundraiser for Lil Deer.
