Tax Reform Proves
Disastrous to
Gulfport if Passes
If a bill to cut property taxes pass-
es the Florida House of Representa-
tives, Gulfport will have to eliminate
"all but essential, basic services,"
according to the City Manager's re-
port to Council last week. The tax
reform bill will reduce the City's
General Fund by over $1.5 million,
almost half the money the City re-
ceives from property taxes.
Brobeil's staff predicts that such
a cut would eliminate funding for
many City services and events and
could also necessitate cutbacks in
essential services.
If this bill passes, cities may, by
unanimous vote, approve a millage
rate above the proposed mandated
cap.
The legislature has also proposed
several additional actions that
would require changes to the State
Constitution and Statewide referen-
dum. One of those proposals calls
for the elimination of property taxes
in their entirety.

49th Street: Two Communities, One Vision
By Cathy Salustri "
Changes in the way St. Petersburg handles
communitypolicing could mean great things
for the Greater Childs Park area and Gulf-
port, according to both St. Petersburg Police
Chief Chuck Harmon and Gulfport Police -
Chief Curt Willocks.
As St. Petersburg transitions from "split-
model" community policing to a decentral-
ized, department-wide community policing,
Gulfport joins with St. Petersburg to help fix
the Greater Childs Park area.
This paper will continue to cover efforts
in these' areas and track process. To start,

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.

Courtland Yarborough-
1. Getting the millage down. Places
like Pasadena Yacht and Country
Club don't take advantage of cer-
tain services; don't charge them for
it. We also need to look at funding
things differently.
2. Cleaning Clam Bayou.
3. Revitalizing the waterfront.


Michele King (Incumbent)-
1. Overdevelopment. We haven't
done anything to protect the City
from that.
2. Taxes and Insurance. We did lower
the millage rate- and I did that but
that's not enough to solve people's
problems.
3. Clam Bayou. I told Gulfport Water
Watch (and I told them early on) if
they wanted help with Clam Bayou,
I would give it.


Christine Brown-
1. Budget. The City budget is way
out of whack.
2. Clam Bayou. It's really nasty.

*| AND THE

LAW
Living Trust
Key To Your Estate Plan
A living trust is an arrangement you
create during your lifetime to provide
for yourself and your family both be-
fore and after your death. It has a
built-in flexibility that can work very
well with your overall estate plan.
Advantages of a Living Trust; Reduc-
tion of Probate Cost Whether you
have a will or not, all assets you own
are subject to probate when you pass
away unless you have a trust. Al-
though you can enjoy the use of the
assets you place in a trust during your
life, the living trust removes them
from your estate for probate purposes.
You, therefore, save the probate and
administration costs you would be
required to pay if those same assets
were distributed by will.


Speedy Distribution of Trust Assets-
By establishing a living trust during
your lifetime, you are setting up a
method of managing and distributing
your assets. Because the living trust
escapes the probate process, the plan
of distribution you describe is put into
action immediately upon your death.
There are none of the delays which oc-
cur under the distribution by will.
Flexibility in Planning Another
advantage of the living .trust is the
overall flexibility it provides. Most liv-
ing trusts are revocable. This give you
the freedom to amend, add to, or even
completely do away with the living
trust agreement as you wish. A living
trust can allow you flexibility while
you receive income from you assets
during your lifetime, plus asset man-
agement after your death.
by Robert J. Myers, Esq.
This column outlines general legal
principles and is not intended to give
you legal advice. If you have a specific
question about the law, please consult
an attorney.


Chocolate Delights
and Dancing
Did you know the City of Gulfport
has a program that allocate funds
for public art? A small percentage of
every municipal construction budget
sets aside monies for original art to be
incorporated into the project.
We can see examples throughout the
city. The Catherine Hickman Theatre,
the Recreation Center, the Casino,
Tomlinson Park and the newly cre-
ated dog park have all been enhanced
by this program.
To celebrate this program as well as
increase the funds available for future
projects, the Public Art Advisory Com-
mittee for the City of Gulfport cordial-
ly invites you to "Chocolate Delights",
a night to benefit the arts.
Join us Saturday, March 10th at the
Gulfport Casino for a luscious choco-
late dessert social with piano accom-
paniment from 7-8 p.m. followed by
dancing to the sounds of the 18-piece

Elements Global
Cuisine Welcomes Dogs
Elements Global Cuisine in Gulf-
port has gone to the dogs -..dog-
friendly, that is. They are the first
restaurant to receive Gulfport's out-
side dining dog friendly permit since
approval of the new law by the City
of Gulfport Commission a couple of
weeks ago.
"We wanted to jump on this op-
portunity and follow through with
what seems to be not just a trend,
but a serious request by area pa-
trons. We are the first business to
apply for a permit (#0001), allowing
well-behaved dogs with their owners
in one of our outside dining areas"
says Chef/owner Jose Luis Pawelek.
"We have two dogs ourselves and
try, whenever possible, to take them
with us, but more importantly, we
will train our staff to comply with
the City's 18 guidelines." adds Pas-
try Chef/Owner Catherine Pawelek.
Elements Global Cuisine is located
at 3121 Beach Blvd. in Gulfport.
Phone number is 343-9894.

QUESTION: Does it make sense to
look at everything for sale before
you decide which home to buy?
ANSWER: Only if you want to
waste a lot of time and energy. Most
buyers are only exposed to a small
fraction of the homes for sale in their
selected price range and location. In
most instances, this is the only sensi-
ble way to conduct a home search.
Prioritize what you want and how
much you can afford. Discuss it with
your Realtor and let him or her do the
time-consuming research. You can get


confused if you aimlessly wander
about looking at hundreds of homes.
This is unproductive use of time and
energy for everyone concerned.
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.

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

I am proud to be on Gulfport's Community Emergency Response
Team. CERT, part of Homeland Security, trains and educates -''
citizens to respond to a variety of emergencies. The training,
through the Gulfport Fire Department, teaches us to be prepared,
to stay safe and to help our neighbors and our community in the
days following a disaster. For instance, when we know a
hurricane is headed our way; it's too late to evacuate. Outside
help will take days. The role of CERT is to assist the fire
department and the City in making sure all citizens are safe, their
basic needs are met and to begin restoring order. Every citizen
would benefit from CERT training which in turn would benefit
our City. Because we feel so strongly about being here to help our community, my husband
and I have just completed construction on a FEMA approved Hurricane Safe Room. We invite
you to stop by Saturday, March 3rd, between 9:00am and 12:00pm to take a tour.
Ms. King, is the incumbent but she is first and foremost a Realtor. She has repeatedly promoted
herself as a Realtor in official public meetings. A deliberate misuse of office. The line
separating King the Realtor from King the Councilmember is too faint. Is there a conflict of
interest? The York Street fence height was agreed upon by the homeowners affected, King still
fought it. Why? Perhaps for an enhanced view of the bay for the $695,000 home next door
listed for sale by King? Or possibly protecting a future waterfront listing? Currently, Ms. King
has 12 listings, 11 of which are in Gulfport and are valued in excess of 2.5 million dollars. If
one listing, one sale or one lead has been obtained from her obvious self promotions, then a
conflict exists. Making a living is admirable, but using a public office to do it, is not.

Getting Rescued in Gulfport
Dear Editor: Get Rescued...in
Gulfport was a tremendous success!
Thank you, residents and merchants
for your kindness to the rescue
groups attending the fundraising
opportunity in downtown Gulfport
on Feb. 17th. The funds raised are
necessary to the success of the cat
and dog rescues caring for homeless
animals. Not only were hundreds
of dollars raised for various groups,
three dogs were placed in loving
homes. These dogs were destined to
be destroyed if not for the dedication
of the rescue volunteers.
Thanks to Mary O'Malley of Reef
Dog and Lori Rosso of Sea Breeze
Manor Inn B&B for your sponsorship.
Thanks to HT Kanes, Aqua Bella,
O'Maddy's, Peg's Cantina, Backfin
Blue, Elements, Pia's Trattoria,
LaCote Basque, Cahill's and Domain
for three years of support. Thanks to

Culbertson, Michele King, Mr. Taso,
Marlene Shaw, Catherine & Ralph
Bassett, David Mathews, Donna,

Thanks to those who donated silent
auction items and to friends for
soliciting items and sponsorships.
Thanks to all who purchased wine
tasting tickets and bid on auction
items at both events. Thanks to the
Gabber and Katie Bradshaw for the
press. Thanks to rescue groups who
work tirelessly to make the world a
better place.

Christine Brown's full-page ad in
the (Feb. 15-21) Gabber stooped to
a level that can only be described as
despicable. Her second paragraph,
an attack on the incumbent against
whom she is running, is utterly
without cause or merit. I hope that
the voters of Gulfport recognize just
how distasteful and inappropriate
her mud-slinging campaign is and
reject the candidacy of one Christine
Brown. No other candidate (so far)
for any office in Gulfport has chosen
to go this lowly route.
"What can Christine Brown do for
me?" She can issue an apology to the
voters and her opponent and then
move to another town.

WVVhlL uo you see Irom your winaow-


A note from the Publisher
By Ken Reichart
The upper 49th street corridor
has been a neglected part of the
city for many years. Gulfport's in-
dustrial district doesn't lend it-
self to much glamour. Crime is
the second highest in the city.
From eyeshot of the Gabber build-
ing there have been several crimes
that I feel were a little too close. For
example, in the early 90's there was
a murder across the street at the
convenience store. In 1994, one of
the Gabber employees had her car
stolen while working, then another in
1998. Oh, then there was the drive
by shooting that blew out our front
office window in 1999. Thank good-
ness it only killed a computer that
I was working at an hour earlier.
According to statistics, crime has
dropped in Gulfport since the begin-
ning of the new millennium. Since
the turn of the century I have called
the police far fewer times. I recall in
2000 calling the police for a moan-
ing drunken derelict in the park-
ing area of our office as I was arriv-
ing one morning. Then there was
the stolen cell phone from my Jeep.
One Friday in 2006, I was leaving
the office at 2:45 p.m. and a young
boy (I guess 17) pulled a hand gun
from his pants and waved it at me.
A few months later there were
two children in the alley behind the
building waving guns. Then the po-
lice notified me that there was gang
insignia painted on the back of my
building. Most recently, there was
a shady looking man that came to

Diplomat Amercan Board of
Podiatric Surgery.
Diabetic foot care & wounds


the office to use the bathroom and
left nearly thirty minutes later. The
next day someone broke into the
back of the building. Coincidence?"
The only good thing can I say from
this entire experience isthat the Gulf-
port police respond when called on.
Short of using a stop watch, they were
here in a matter of a minute or two
each time I called. And, boy I called.
What can be done?
It seems like the business commu-
nity is waiting on the city to act and
the city is waiting for the business
owners to take some responsibility.
The city offers a fist full of bro-
chures and flyers on suggestions
to make your business safer. I'm
not convinced that fresh paint and
lights on my building will do noth-
ing more than draw attention.
In one of several meetings with
the city over the years I was told by
Chief Willocks that there are pa-
trols in the area, and he showed me
the statistics. The only thing is that
many of the patrols are unmarked.
There is no visible police presence.
What if the one or two cruisers that
are tucked away off 15th avenue at
the Pinellas trail spur parked at one
of the businesses along 49th? Or,
rather than two cars in the Winn
Dixie parking lot, one of them cruise
to a business up the street and sit.
In the meantime, I will replace my out-
side lights, and put a "For Police Cars
Only" sign at the first spot on Newton
avenue outside the Gabber building.
By the way, you can phone
your advertising to 321-6965
and our bathrooms don't work.

to carpool or meet at the Gardens at
about 10:30 a.m. Each person will be
responsible for his/her entrance fee
and, after viewing the gardens, there
are several nice restaurants nearby
to have lunch. This is a walking tour
so wear comfortable shoes.
Tip.of the Month: The best time for
the spring application of fertilizer
is about two weeks after the grass
shows signs of active growth. A low
phosphorus content (the middle
number on the fertilizer package) is
best since local soils usually contain
high amounts of phosphorus.

shoes and come out to enjoy this low
impact, fun sport.

seum at 536 4th Ave. N. Park in the

Tell Us About Yourself....
The Gabber Talks to Candidates For Mayor and City Council


By Cathy Salustri

This month Gulfport voters will choose between six can-
didates for two Council positions- Mayor and Ward Two.
Ads and debate reveal only the politics, not the people.
We sat down with each candidate and simply said, "Tell
me about yourself." Here's what we learned.


Cubicle Refugee
He's a Florida boy, born and raised. Courtland Yarbor-
ough has lived in Florida most of his life. He spent his
college years at the Citadel and another four in Palmetto,
but the rest of the time he's called St. Petersburg and Gulf-
port home.
"I liked the small town feel of Pal-
metto," he says. After living in a town
with a population of under 15,000,

She ultimately landed in the world of
finance as a licensed stockbroker. A
success story for a St. Pete boy raised
by parents who wanted the best for their son.
And he hated it.
"I spent my days in the office, staring out the window, wish-
ing I was back outside," he says, explaining his shift from
stockbroker to marina worker. "I figure, enjoy your days,
you're not going to have that many of them." He left the
world of high
finance and "What's important is that you're

dry in Gulf-
port. He rents
an apartment on Beach Boulevard. He loves his life now.
"They treat me like a son," Yarborough says of his employ-
ers at the marina. "I'm very grateful for the life I have, the
people that are in my life.
"I didn't have anything to do with it. I'm just along for the
ride."



For Her Daughter
Elizabeth Brown-Worthington
may not realize it, but her moth-
er lives in Gulfport because of her.
Christine Brown's Art District cor-
ner house screams "home". Her nine
year old, Elizabeth, can't wait to
show off her kittens, but she also has


fish and a cockatiel; outside pets include Lou Worthington's
squirrel buddies.
Brown's mother lives in the adjoining apartment, often
popping over with dinner or to walk Elizabeth to tennis les-
sons. A dry-erase calendar hangs on the back of the front
door, each day
crammed with "It Is better to give than receive."
activities. In -Christine Brown
one corner,
a Friends DVD waits for mother and daughter ("We're
working our way through... it's bonding," Brown says.)
The Brown's have started repainting Elizabeth's bedroom-
Fairy Tale Pink and Bibbity Bobbity Blue.
Brown, born in Honolulu and shuttled around the country
as a Navy baby, graduated from Lakewood High School.
She met Lou, her husband, while dating a friend of his in
1988. Long before the young Ms. Brown-Worthington came
into their lives, Christine Brown knew she wanted to raise
a family in Gulfport.
"It was culture shock for me to meet people that have been
somewhere for 40 or 50 years," Brown says. She loves the
town as much as she loves the Worthington family. "It's a
good family; they're rooted.
"That's what I want for my baby."

Community of Her Own A'
M ichele King grew up in Pa- l
tchogue, a village of 14,000
people on Long Island. As so many
northerners do, she headed south...
and stayed. She and her husband '
Will tried out several different com-
munities before deciding to call Gulf- /
port home.
Initially, the Kings moved to Pass-A-Grille, but ultimately
decided on Gulfport 20 years ago.
"Gulfport was more affordable," King remembers. While
she admits that finances played a part in directing her
family to Gulfport, she quickly adds that other factors con-
tributed to her decision.
"It also had a more appealing downtown," she says. King
works as a Realtor, dividing her time between that and
serving on City

lj The Universe Unfolds
S /arlene Shaw left Michigan 25
L -Lyears ago, ready to leave the
Scold, depressing winters behind her.
She moved to Florida, where life "was
less of an existence and exercise in
survival and more a place where you
Scan enjoy things like culture, warm
weather," she explains from the living
room of her 58th Street home.
As she talks, her super-sized gray tabby, Buddy, tries to
make friends with the camera. Her home, built the same
year Christine Brown -
got together with her I'm committed to a com-
husband, feels like munity in which we make
Gulfport. On the out- life better, do what is right,
side, local artist Keith and put people first."
Stillwagon has a mural. -Marlene Shaw
Huge acrylic paintings
adorn her walls; she has very little clutter but a lot of Florida
in her home.
Shaw found Gulfport with her ex-husband Andy.
"As we drove around we were so charmed," Shaw recalls.
The marriage didn't quite take- they divorced in 2003 after
10 years- but Gulfport did. Shaw held onto the house. She's
converted the backyard into a haven for wildlife- certified as
such by the National Wildlife Federation. She has a "adult
tree house" in her backyard.
Shaw, who lived in Clearwater, St. Pete Beach, St. Peters-
burg, and Largo before settling into Gulfport, has no set-in-
stone plan for her life.
"I think of things in terms of spirituality more than I do
religion," Shaw says of her philosophy on life.
"I let the universe unfold."


A Lucky Man

M ike Yakes first became Mayor 17
years ago. He has accomplished
much and can tell you about all of it,
but if you want to hear a man brag, --
ask Yakes about his family. _
"What a fortunate life I've had, sur-
,rounded by family," Yakes says.
His parents came to Gulfport from
Michigan; he grew up as "middle
Mike" on Upton Street, sandwiched between two older and
two younger siblings.
"My upbringing was a style setter for me," Yakes says of his
parents. He met Darlene, his wife, at M&M Rendezvous, a
restaurant that sponsored his race cars.
"When we would win, I would present a second trophy to the
sponsor, and that was usually on Darlene's shift. We never
really dated- we just started going out and talking and it
went from one thing to the next," Yakes remembers.


"God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot
change, courage to change
the things I can, and wisdom
to know the difference."
-Mike Yakes
Gabber March 1 March 7, 2007


Together they raised
three children; the
genetic lineage mat-
ters little to Yakes.
He simply calls them
his family.
Dominique came
first; she recently


graduated from Florida State. Chris came next; he attends
the University of South Florida. Finally- for now- there's
Dominick. He attends Gulfport Montessori Elementary, and
if you want the Mayor's ear, just stop by the school at any
PTA meeting or special concert; you'll find Yakes there and
you'll have all his attention.
Until, of course, Dominick takes the
stage.


Second Chances


Clark Scherer became a widow .
three months shy of his 50th wed-
ding anniversary. Together they had
five boys and had started building a
home in Pasadena Yacht and Country
Club.
They had lived all over the world, from Kentucky to the
South Pacific, only to decide they wanted to call Gulfport
home.
After his wife's death, Scherer stayed in his home. Gulfport,
he says, "was where I felt I wanted to spend the rest of my
life."
And then he met Donalie Ann Young- again. The two had
double dated fifty years ago in high school, but had never
dated each other.
"Family values, honesty, and They danced togeth-
hard work- that's what I do." er at prom, but af-
-Clark Scherer ter high school each
went their own way,
thinking fondly of each other as friends.
Three years ago they met once again, and this time they be-
came much more than friends, marrying on the Starlite Prin-
cess amid 100 of their closest family and friends. Together
they have six boys, three girls, and one dog.
Scherer defines Gulfport in a word: "Home."

What If...

We asked each candidate who they would vote for if they
weren't running.

Council, Ward Two

Christine Brown: "Courtland Yarborough, because we need
a change."

Michele King: "Courtland Yarborough, because I find his
campaign upbeat and positive."

Courtland Yarborough: "Michele King. I think she has a
little more flexibility in her schedule to do the job."

Mayor

Clark Scherer: "Marlene Shaw. I feel Mayor Yakes has been
in long enough; the City needs new thinking and direc-
tion."

Marlene Shaw: "Yakes."

Mike Yakes: "Marlene Shaw, because of her volunteer ef-
forts, and she knows Gulfport better. I feel she would be
more able to yield to the interest of the people."

49th Street,
from front page
we'll define the areas, outline what resi-
dents and police perceive as the problems,
and bring readers up to speed on current
efforts.
Childs Park runs from 1st Avenue South
to 18th Avenue South and from 34th Street
South to 49th Street South, where it shares
a business corridor with Gulfport. On the
Gulfport side of 49th Street lies Section
Two, also known as the Northeast Area.
The Northeast Area runs from 7th Avenue
South to Gulfport Boulevard and from 49th
Street South to 58th Street South.
"I think it's a great thing that we're go-


ing to work together; I think on both sides
the police know exactly who's doing what.
Maybe if we work together we can end
some of that," Stull said of the partner-
ship.
The Greater Childs Park area encompass-
es a slightly larger area, with the same east
and west boundaries but expanding north
to 2nd Avenue North and south to 31st Av-
enue South.
Residents on both sides of 49th Street as
well as 49th Street businesses have com-
plained about crime. Crime reports from
Childs Park and the streets surrounding
it show that St. Petersburg police officers
dealt with almost 800 narcotics violations
in 2006. Gulfport Police have also dealt


w


with burglaries and other crimes at busi-
nesses along 49th Street South.
Gulfport Chamber of Commerce presi-
dent Lori Russo said that at a recent 49th
Street Corridor Chamber meeting attend-
ees voiced major safety concerns about the
49th Street area.
"The major issue up there is security and
a sense that the people that go to the busi-
nesses are safe and that the businesses there .
aren't going to be burglarized," Russo ex-
plained. She said she felt security topped
the list of priorities for businesses, fol-
lowed by communication with St. Peters-
burg and developing an anchor store (such
as an upgraded Winn Dixie).
Russo stressed that working with St. Pe-
tersburg on all levels- law enforcement,
business, and public works- could make
a drastic difference in the future of 49th
Street and its adjacent neighborhoods.
"How do you work together with another
city?" Russo said. "It's a conundrum for
me, but I think we have to try."

Step One: The Childs Park Initiative
In September St. Petersburg mayor Rick
Baker announced the Childs Park Initia-
tive, which would include neighborhood
focus groups that will ultimately develop
a plan to help revitalize the area. Gulfport
councilwoman Mary Stull, who represents
northeast Gulfport, has participated in
these meetings.
At last month's Gulfport Crime Watch
meeting, Childs Park Crime Watch repre-
sentatives attended and spoke. Mrs. Patter-
son, the head of Childs Park Crime Watch,
reminded attendees that while her neigh-
borhood had its share of issues, the crime
along 49th Street South also stems from
areas outside Childs Park.
Willocks agrees.
"We have our own share of druggies and
alcoholics. Nobody has a corner on the
market on bad guys."
That doesn't mean that each agency has to
work adjacent areas alone. St. Petersburg
and Gulfport police frequently work in tan-
dem.
"We've done joint ops on drug deals,"
Willocks said "We go in on both side of
49th Street. It's a challenge and it's always
going to be a challenge."
Chief Harmon also stressed the impor-
tance of the two agencies working together
to ensure a successful effort.
"Improvements must be in tandem," Har-
mon said.

Fortune Financial: The Dynamic Duo


By Cathy Salustri

Have owned four homes in my
lifetime. Of those homes, I have
financed two of them through
banks and two with the assistance of
a mortgage broker.
The first time I used a mortgage bro-
ker, I was wary. I figured I'd spend a
ton of money on broker's fees and not
make out much better in the end. Not
so, I realized once I saw my interest
rate. How, I wondered, could a free-
lance writer that a bank won't even
talk to get a good rate on a home?
Ah, the magical mortgage broker.
I'm not the only one who sees the
benefit- more and more people are
leaving banks behind in favor of a
broker who can get the best rate for
in each circumstance.
Of course, as more people choose
brokers over banks, lured by compe-
teitive loan packages, more brokers
pop up, making choosing a broker no
simple task.
Unless you know Susan Westerhoff
or Robin Pence, two Gulfport wom-
en who have worked in the world
of finance for over 30 and 20 years,
respectively. If you know Susan's
name but don't know why, it's be-
cause she recently "retired" from her
post as Gulfport Chamber of Com-
merce president. Perhaps "retired"
isn't really the right word- Wester-
hoff remains active in the Chamber
(she still sits on the board) as she
runs Fortune Financial Mortgage
Services, Inc., with Pence, who co-
owns the business. Not exactly the
"playing golf and bridge" type of re-
tirement, is it?
But don't choose Fortune Financial
Mortgage Services just because you
know Susan or Robin. Choose them
because of how they conduct their
business or because they have a stel-
lar reputation. Or you could choose
them because I'm in the middle of re-
financing my home with Fortune and
haven't gone completely insane yet
(I'm not a huge fan of any financial
institution; if I had my way we'd all
be trading beads as currency).
Why am I still sane? I credit Susan
and Robin. Robin says that she and
Susan won't make a loan to some-
body if they can't sleep once they've


Robin Pence (standing) and Susan Westerhoff (seated) have a combined total
of 50-plus years in the banking world. They work together to put people in
homes at the best possible rates.


done it. The mortgage duo also says
that because they're a face-to-face
type of business, they have a sense
almost immediately as to whether
or not they can get somebody into a
loan that they can handle.
"Technically, legally, we're not al-
lowed to turn down an application...
but we put our customers first."
For example, Susan looked at my
credit and made some suggestions
as to what to pay off and how to
improve my credit score. She could
write a loan now, she said, but if I
waited a few months and paid off one
old debt, she could get me a better
interest rate.
That's a big gamble for her- remem-,
ber, she doesn't get paid until the
loan closes, so if I had decided to go
somewhere else she would have lost
money.
I imagine, too, that a lot of people
in our "want it now" society may not
want to hear that they could get a
better deal if they wait. I'm certain
that honesty must cost Susan and
Robin some business. But for those
of us willing to wait or do whatever
else they suggest, the payoff comes
Paid Advertisement-


with a lower interest rate, lower pay-
ments, or some other financial ben-
efit.
Susan went out of her way for me-
checking into the necessity of flood
insurance when I was certain I need-
ed it, making suggestions you would
expectfrom a mom, not a mortgage
broker; who isn't old enough to be
your nmom, and generally looking out
for my est financial interests.
"Eve*r deal is unique and has to be
treated that way," Susan and Robin
both told me when I interviewed
them for this article. OK, I believe
them- sort of. What I fail to believe
is that the way they treated my loan
'was unique for them- I do not know
either of them well enough to war-
rant special treatment. So I'm cer-
tain they create unique loan packag-
es, but I'm also equally certain they
treat all their clients with the level
of respect, integrity, and honesty I
experienced.

LET'S KEEP

Michael "MIKE" Yakes
When Gulfport rallied to challenge the county review recommendations, where were these candidates.
Recognized for his 20 years as a elective official by Florida League of Cities.
Reappointed to The Board of Florida League of Cities.
Lets Save Clam Bayou Initiative.
A grass roots person, raised in Gulfport.
Experienced proven leader, not obligated to any special interest groups.
Actively involved in improving education.
Appointed president of the Mayors Council of Pinellas County, by the mayors of its 24 cities
members 1994-1995.
Currently a member of the board of Directors for the Suncoast League of Municipalities.
Recently appointed 2nd Vice President
I represent the citizens of Gulfport with a fair and impartial attitude.
I support and encourage public input, always wide open door.
I believe, an informed community is a healthy community.
Aggressively seeks out our "fair share" of State and Federal funding for ongoing and upcoming projects
that benefit our city some of which include:
Senior Citizen programs and activities
Family oriented activities
Supports the beach redevelopment project with expansion
of the arts and cultural activities
Strong supporter of teen education and activities.
ELECT MIKE YAKES for MAYOR
All Wards Vote For All City Seats
The city was unsucessful in securing a fund for Scout Hall. Mayor Yakes went to Washington and came back
with funding to save the hall.
Though the encouragement and involvement of the citizens of Gulfport, I have been qble to keep abreast,
respond, be knowledgeable and continue to assist the city of Gulfport to stay at the top.
We will be competing with other communities for state and federal funds. I am ready, willing and able to
reach our goals.
Together we must act NOW Tomorrow may be too costly
