Old Man and the Sea


Photo by Morgan Landis
Brian o h-Eachtuigheirn and his crew has been on this rowboat
for about two years. He started in Nova Scotia and is working his
way to Ireland in efforts to restore the Irish language as a language
in his home country. The rowboat is canvas covered wood 26 feet
long with four men rowing at a time. The crew covers 25 miles a
day and then makes a stop at beach towns to make presentations
and raise awareness about their cause. In order to make it across
the ocean safely, they have an escort boat following closely where
the men can eat and sleep if necessary. Gulfport was an unsched-
uled stop, but windy weather caused the group to wash ashore
for a couple days.

Springfest is a GO
By Greg Stemm

Gulfport's popular Springfest
celebration will take place after
all. Council approved a revived
celebration scheduled for Satur-
day, April 28 from Noon to 8:00
p.m. after the Gulfport Chamber
of Commerce approached the City
with a plan for co-sponsorship.
The event was originally cancelled
by City staff in a move to try and save
money from a tight event budget.
Co-sponsorship with the City allows
the event to move forward, but at a
public expense of only $2,845, which
is 36 percent of what the City spent
to produce the activity last year.
The Chamber assumes responsi-
bility for planning, producing and
advertising the event. It will solicit
sponsors, vendors and entertain-
ment and will provide volunteers to
help with policing trash and litter
generated by the day long event.
The City will provide a stage,
sound system, port-o-lets, electric-
ity and re-lettering of the large City
banners which will help promote
the event to traffic on Gulfport Bou-
levard. It will also provide some
staff including two leisure services

Warning! Gulfport's Little League's Future is at Risk
Hello, my name is Tim Coppola. I am writing on behalf of Gulfport's Little
League and our children. We are in desperate need of some volunteers! I played
ball here over 30 years ago and we had packed stands and many teams for each
division. It's really sad to see that the ball has been dropped for our children.
I am sure we have a lot of retired or experienced umpires and coaches who live
in Gulfport. I am desperately asking for somebody to help our children enjoy
America's favorite pastime, baseball. We need to keep our kids on the fields and
not on the streets. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated and you would
be making a child's dream become a reality.
We are also need additional players, especially in the 13-14 & 15, 16 year old's
division, Tee-Ball coaches, Jr. & Sr. coaches and umpires for all divisions. We
also need girls, all divisions, and coaches for their softball league as well as help
with the concession stand. Whether it be an hour or a few hours a week, the kids
and the League would greatly appreciate it.
Special scholarship program is available. No child will be turned away. I will
personally sponsor five kids with either gloves, cleats or sign-up fee. Contact Tim
Coppola at 727-458-2461. Please come out to the ballfield to enjoy the games,
show support and eat some good food. Volunteers, please contact Gulfport Little
League at 321-1084 and talk to Mike Corcoran.

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.

Generally, the Gabber watches ads
Very closely for intentional scams.
Over the years there have been
scores of ads that we have stopped.
Recently one squeaked through and
ran at least two weeks. Below is an
article from the internet confirming
any suspicion.
"I was searching for a puppy and
came across an ad on a website(?)
that read "Yorkie needs home
ASAP". When you email the person
she emails you back indicating that
her puppy has already been placed
and then gives you to another
gentleman who is supposedly a
"pastor" who's doing missionary
work in Africa. The conditions are
too severe for his puppy. The puppy
is free but you need to pay $400
for the shipping....then he needs
an additional $300 for customs....
and then $200 for a shipping crate.
The scam is run in all states under
different types of listings. Anything
that involves Nigeria, puppies and
Western Union is a scam! Beware!"

LET'S KEEP

Michael "MIKE" Yakes
When Gulfport rallied to challenge the county review recommendations,
where were my opposing 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.
VOTE FOR YAKES.
LETS NOT BE SHORT CHANGED
All Wards Vote For All City Seats
S- The city was unsuccessful in securing a fund for Scout Hall. Mayor
SYakes went to Washington and came back
S h with funding to save the hall.
Though the encouragement and involvement of the citizens of
Gulfport, I have been able 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.

Mike's Gate User Friendly PYCC Gate A Little Difficult...
Think!
Florida Statute also Included in the Section: 104.271 FS of the Candidate Handbook States:
A candidate may not, with actual malice make any false statements about an opposing candidate.
Fact: Mayor Mike Yakes had no more to say in higher property rates than you! We all were very happy when
Real Estate values soared. A house that sold for $70,000 in 1966 all of a sudden was selling for $300,000. Along
comes the county and says we want taxes on the value we think your property is worth. Mike Yakes and council
lowered the ad valorem rate by 10% to property owners. If my opponent doesn't know this, He should!
Fact: Most Gulfportians know we buy our water from St. Petersburg, they raised the rates by 14.4%, Mayor
Mike and council only passed on 10% to the city.
Don't Let A Newcomer Try Scare Tactics With You.
My opponent seems to have done things everywhere but in Gulfport??? I haven't seen him at council meetings.
Has he been a Little League Coach? Did he help with Holy Name Octoberfest? Did he start and encourage the
Teen Council? Maybe he volunteered at the Optimist Club or belongs to Gulfport Lions Club or the American
Legion 125. Does he visit our senior citizens, ride and walk in the hot sun at parades and functions?
NO, He Doesn't, But I Do!!!

, -Council Asks Nelson
Gulfport City Council hopes to
* solicit federal help with Clam
. Bayou after passing a resolution
on Tuesday which asks U.S. Sena-
tor Bill Nelson for assistance in
an enforcement action against the
City of St. Petersburg and SWF-
, WMD (the Southwest Florida Wa-
,ter Management District) to stop
or restrict stormwater run off into
the estuary which is causing an
un-natural accumulation of debris
: and sediment.
The action Tuesday supports a
:: Clam Bayou resolution introduced
$ by Council member Bob Worthing-
ton at a Council meeting on Febru-
Sary 6: Council member Worthing-
ton was attending a conference on
taxes in Tallahassee during the
last scheduled meeting and this
agenda item was postponed until


for Clam Bayou Enforcement Action


he could be present.
The resolution introduced by
Worthington and approved by
Council calls upon Bill Nelson's of-
fice to support:
1. Department of Environ-
mental Protection issuance of a
stormwater enforcement action to
compel the City of St. Petersburg
to comply with the provisions and
intent of the MS4 and NPDES
agreements, applicable portions of
the Federal Clean Water Act and
other stormwater management
policies and laws.
2. Action by the Anclote
River Basin Board to direct SWF-
WMD to meet the SWIM, Tampa
Bay Estuary Program and Florida
Forever goals to restore the Clam
Bayou habitat back to a 1950s
baseline, to remove accumulated


sediment, trash and debris down
to the natural sand bottom and to
improve flow for the health of the
estuary and to enable access by
large marine fish and mammals
and the public, which formerly
could enter the Bayou at all stages
of tide'.
3. Perpetuation of the tra-
ditional rights of public waterway
access to the Clam Bayou Estu-
ary.
Al Davis, an outspoken propo-
nent of Clam Bayou clean up ef-
forts and founder and president
of Gulfport Water Watch, an orga-
nization created to deal with wa-
terfront issues, called the action
by the Council "...an act of moral
courage." and applauded them for
passage of the resolution.

Michael Yakes, Gulfport-

2. The tax issue is there- property

3. Supporting Communities for a
Lifetime."


Marlene Shaw, Gulfport-
"1. People are concerned about where
we're headed as far as construction
and development.
2. Taxes and insurance issues- peo-
ple are concerned about losing their
homes.
3. The people of this community re-
ally like to be heard. I think that's an
important issue in our community."

Clark Scherer, Gulfport-
"1. Revitalizing downtown, including
the waterfront, bringing it back. It's
important to merchants, important
to the people that come in here.
2. Taxes. People cannot survive with
what they're paying- I feel sorry for
them. No one seems to be doing that
at City Council right now; Michele
King did reduce the millage rate but
it wasn't really a lot."

Pictured (L-R): Morton Hess, Mark Myers, Susan O'Gara, Scott Brandon & Christina-Snow
Broadway
The Gulfport Community Players open the thought-provoking drama
'Foxfire' tonight at the Catherine A. Hickman Theater of Gulfport. It will
run March 8th through March 25th.
The story of 'Foxfire' is deceptively simple, as a mountain woman (Annie)
must decide between spending the last part of her life on the land she loves
or helping her son (Dillard) mend his broken family. The confrontation of
tradition and progress brought out in the play is an ageless story and one
that reminds all of us of what we may be losing. 'Foxfire' is an elegy for a
disappearing way of life and a cautionary tale for everyone.
Tickets are just $15 each and are on sale now at Eileen's Resale Boutique,
the Beach Bazaar, the Gulfport Chamber of Commerce, the Gulfport Casino
or call 322-0316. Thursday, Friday and Saturday curtain time is 8 p.m. and
the Sunday matinees are at 1:30 p.m.

A AND THE

LAW

Real Estate Buyer's
Legal Checklist
One of the single largest investments
of your lifetime may be when you pur-
chase a home or some other type of
real estate. In many cases, your en-
tire life savings could be invested and
potentially at risk. As a result, it is
very important that any prospective
purchaser of real estate proceed with
a certain amount of caution.
Purchase and Sale Agreement
The first document that a potential
buyer of real estate will encounter is
the Real Estate Purchase and Sales


Agreement. This document is one of
the most important papers you will
sign in a real estate transaction. The
details contained in this agreement
determine what real property you will
buy and how you will buy it. What
is in this agreement also establishes
what your rights and responsibilities
are in the upcoming real estate trans-
action.
The following is a brief checklist of
items which should be considered by
a buyer of real estate: What exactly
are you purchasing? Are land, build-
ings and personal property included
as part of the sale?
When will you be entitled to take
possession of the property? Will the
current owners need time after the
closing to move out of the property?
Can you live with this?
What kind of deed should the seller
of the real estate give you? Should it

be an agreement for deed, a quitclaim
deed or a warranty deed?
Will the seller provide you with good,
marketable title? Who is responsible
for the payment of real estate and oth-
er taxes? Will they be prorated? What
persons should be required to sign
and accept the real estate contract
and closing documents? Is it neces-
sary for both a husband and wife to
sign the documents? Who should sign
the. documents if a corporation is in-
volved in the deal? What are the zon-
ing or other restrictions on the use of
the real property? Are water, mineral
or timber rights involved in the sale of
the real estate? Have they been prop-
erly covered in the agreement?
In what time frame does the purchase
offer need to be accepted or refused?
Are there certain contingencies in the
real estate contract which require sat-
isfaction prior to the contract becom-
ing effective and legally enforceable?
Who pays for the costs of title insur-
ance, property inspection, intangible
tax on the mortgage, documentary
stamps and the broker fee? These are
a few of the questions which should be
answered before you sign a real estate
agreement. Only then you know if the
real estate purchase you. are contem-
plating will truly meet your needs.

Bob Phillips, left, presents a check for $1000 to Gu
port Chamber of Commerce president Lori Rosso
support of the newly revived Springfest celebration
The event had been canceled by City staff in a bu
get cutting move, but was removed from the choppi
block when the Chamber presented the City with a pl
for co-sponsorship. The-City approved the plan whi
allows them to spend just 36 percent of what they c
last year on the activity. Springfest is schedule for Si

and businesses will quickly step up to the plate as sponsors like
Boca Ciega Yacht Club has. We really appreciate their support."
Rosso said the Chamber has several lists of potential vendors and will
begin immediately accepting applications for vendor space along Beach
Boulevard. She noted that a number of businesses have already ten-
tatively reserved space pending the Council approval on Tuesday. She
said the Chamber plans to have live entertainment all day and fam-
ily friendly activities. She encouraged businesses downtown to offer spe-
cials and to plan their own activities that day to increase traffic flow.
According to Rosso, the Chamber rearranged its calendar of events
to accommodate the co-sponsorship because the board of directors felt
strongly that not only was the event a popular annual tradition for
residents, but that downtown merchants who have been struggling
with higher property taxes and insurance issues needed the support.
"We moved the Pink Flamingo Tour of Homes to the first weekend in No-
vember this year," said Rosso. "That was the weekend we originally had the
Taste of Gulfport event scheduled. We cancelled that event, but are plan-
ning to solicit those restaurants to participate in Springfest instead. Re-
alignment of pur resources was beneficial to the Chamber as well and we
excited about working together with the City to make Springfest happen."
Springfest was originally scheduled for the first Saturday in
April, but has been moved to the last Saturday to give the Cham-
ber more time to adequately produce and promote the event.

SCHERER


LET'S GET
THE FACTS
STRAIGHT


Faced by runaway municipal spending, (a $21,433,291 budget), runaway real
estate taxes, struggling downtown and a scandalous neglect of Clam Bayou, Clark
Scherer was drafted out of retirement by a group of concerned citizens because he
is best qualified by his professional training, past government experience and
successful business skills to lead Gulfport forward.
Clark Scherer has been a resident of Gulfport for over 9 years. He is an active
leader in his homeowner's association and-college alumni association.
Clark Scherer owns his home and 2 small income properties in Gulfport...and
that's all.
Clark Scherer spearheaded and won the fight to stop the development of a major
condominium project in his neighborhood.
Clark Scherer was not, is not and never will be a real estate developer of any kind!

7 REASONS WHY CLARK SCHERER IS

YOUR BEST CHOICE FOR MAYOR!

IJ OVERSEEING A $21,433,291 BUDGET IS NOT FOR AMATEURS. With a Master's
Degree and leadership of a successful national company, Clark is no amateur.
| HE IS THE ONLY CANDIDATE FOR MAYOR TO PLEDGE IN WRITING TO CUT
SCITY SPENDING AND CAP TAXES. He has received the coveted endorsement of
Cut Taxes Now PAC.
O HE WILL DELIVER ESSENTIAL CITY SERVICES. The people of Coconut Creek
elected him Mayor 3 times. Enough said?
0l CITIZEN'S CONCERNS WILL COME FIRST. ALWAYS. By maintaining his website,
holding regular office hours and holding more open meeting workshops everyone will
have their say.
I5 CLAM BAYOU WILL BE CLEANED AND RESTORED. No more foot dragging.
| As a licensed professional engineer with extensive maritime experience, Clark will
be a formidable advocate.

J OUR "SMALL TOWN" CHARACTER WILL BE PRESERVED by helping to create
6\ a better business climate for artists, shop owners and restauranteurs.
07 A MOORING FIELD WILL FINALLY GET BUILT. Increased City revenues and more
customers downtown will result. 33 years as a Seabee officer uniquely qualifies Clark
for this task.

Mayor Meets With NOAA on Clam Bayou


Gulfport Mayor Mike Yakes and
City Manager Tom Brobeil met
with John Ilip and several other
National Oceanic and Atmospher-
ic Administration (NOAA) officials
last week. During this meeting
they discussed any other oppor-
tunities exist for restoring upper
Clam Bayou.
NOAA officials said they support
forming estuaries and mangrove
forests to create fish habitat. They
mentioned a possible compromise:
dredging tidal channels (not the
entire basin) to create additional
surface area used as feeding and
breeding areas for marine life.
NOAA believe referring this mat-
ter to the Agency on Bay Manage-
ment, an interdisciplinary environ-


mental impact group that works
under the auspices of the Tamp
Bay Regional Planning Council
would best serve Clam Bayou.
NOAA officials agreed to look into
this matter further to see if any ad-
ditional research (such as counting
fish and bird populations) would
support restorating Clam Bayou
should be included as part of a
greater stormwater and habitat
restoration project.
NOAA officials promised to get
back to the Mayor to identify any
additional opportunities for im-
proving upper Clam Bayou as soon
as they have looked into the mat-
ter further.

Save the
Seabird Sanctuary

Dear Editor: Here's a subject
we all need to "Gab" about: The
fate of Ralph Heath's ever popular
Suncoast Seabird Sanctuary hangs
in the delicate balance of cost vs.
donations.
I assume that most of you have
already read about this disturbing
situation in the newspapers, and are
also concerned as to the fate of this
wonderful place that takes in birds
who have been injured all too often
by human hand, and can no longer
fend for themselves.
The reason for the fear that the
Suncoast Seabird Sanctuary at
18323 Gulf Blvd., Indian Shores,
may actually have to close before too
long is that the only fish suitable for
seabirds is now scarce in the Gulf of
Mexico thus forcing the price up from
19 cents to one dollar a pound. And
there are a lot of birds to be fed!
Folks, isn't it your contributions
and mine over the long term that
will help keep the birds flying? That
is, those who are able to do so in
their sheltered, secure environment.
Bless them all and protect!
Mrs. Evelyn Burton

Gabber March 8 March 14, 2007


J



















Three weeks ago, I wrote a
column about Clam Bayou and
its problems. The column ended
at least partially on a positive note,
stating that, although dredging has
been eliminated from the master plan
for the restoration of Clam Bayou, the
cleanup of stormwater runoff seems to
be on track and just about everyone
expects it to be completed.
I wish I could take it all back.
Because two things have happened
since I wrote that column: I took a
close-up look at Clam Bayou and at the
drainage system in St. Petersburg that
flows into the bayou; and I listened to
the presentation by a representative of
Swiftmud at the City Council meeting
a week later.
Both events made my heart sink.
And I've learned that there are
lots of people who believe that St.
Petersburg has no intention of living
up to its responsibilities to clean up its
stormwater runoff unless forced to
do so by higher powers.
And, yes, I talked to the Gulfport
Water Watch people, who so
passionately want to save Clam Bayou
before it's too late.
But it was the Swiftmud presentation
at the City Council meeting that was
the tipping point for me. Talk about
your rosy scenario. Talk about a time
warp. I almost got up to look at a
calendar to see what year it was.
But I guess that's to be expected, since
the Swiftmud people haven't really
looked at Clam Bayou since the 90s,
when they gathered the information
that they've been basing their
decisions on ever since. They don't
even acknowledge the accelerating
deterioration that has occurred in the
intervening years.
The presentation was filled with
glowing reports of the "successes"
Swiftmud has had at Clam Bayou,
including "habitat restoration," and
promises of the improvements to come
- starting, they say, next year. There
was no mention in the report of the fact

Ilam Bayou:

ie other side

VIEWPOINT

that the single biggest component of
the project, the large settlement pond
east of the bayou in St. Petersburg, is
still at square one hung up, they say,
on land acquisition. And no mention
of the fact that St. Petersburg seems
to be in no hurry whatsoever.
But the council members smile and
nod and say "thank you," just as, I
suspect, they have been doing for
years. These days, all of the council
members pay lip service to Clam
Bayou, including the ones running for
reelection and the entire current crop
of opponents. But everyone just seems
to smile and nod and no one seems to
be willing to ask the hard questions.
Or to invite Swiftmud to come back
and take a look at Clam Bayou today.
Because it's a discouraging sight.
At low tide, it's little more than a
mud flat, these days, with trash and
debris covering the mud and then
more silt disguising the debris. More
than half of the bayou is filled with
mangroves and, the closer you get to
them, the more you see that the roots
of the mangroves are literally clogged
with silt, trash and the castoffs of
society. So much for pristine. You
wonder what those mangrove islands
are made of; they certainly aren't just
silt.
Even the deepest remaining channels
are only inches deep at low tide. I saw
one lone wading bird standing in the
deepest channel up to its ankles.
And the mouth of the bayou is almost
completely closed off, now all of it by
outflow from the main St. Petersburg
drainage channel.
Where does all this stuff come from?
The answer is easy, once you take the
time to drive around to the other side
of the bayou, to the St. Petersburg
side.
There is one main drainage ditch
that feeds into Clam Bayou on the east
side; Lake Maggiore and two smaller
ditches feed into it. And all of these
ditches all of them are liberally
peppered with trash, everything from


plastic soft drink bottles and take-out
chicken boxes to drug paraphernalia
and condoms. And it's all just lying
there, waiting for the next heavy rain
to sweep it all into Clam Bayou.
Yes, nearly all of it comes from St.
Petersburg. But their officials tend
to say things like, "It's Gulfport's
problem" or "The trash comes from
boaters in Boca Ciega Bay." And it
seems like we've been letting them get
away with it for years.
Maybe it's because we're dependent
on St. Petersburg for water, for
sewage disposal, and so forth. Maybe
it's because we don't want to make
waves. Maybe it's because we're the
90-pound weakling, subservient to the
big tough guy kicking sand next door.
But there's no denying that, up
until now, we've stood by, and let
them fill up our bayou with their
runoff, watched them clean up their
own Lake Maggiore but ignore what
they're doing to our bayou.
And there are laws against this sort
of thing, federal laws and state laws
- the 1972 federal Clean, Water Act,
for one. Why have we not asked the
federal Environmental Protection
Agency and the Florida Department of
Environmental Protection to enforce
these laws?
And why have we quietly accepted
Swiftmud's decision to not dredge
Clam Bayou back to its 1950's depth?
That was the original plan, published
and advertised.
The original Clam Bayou plan was
all about "habitat restoration." But it
has not been restored. Despite all the
awards and all the self congratulation,
Swiftmud has not succeeded. Maybe it
all looks good on paper, but in the real
world, it does not.
Assuming that "habitat" refers to
creatures that swim and creatures
that fly, there are precious few of
either remaining in Clam Bayou. The
morning I was there, I saw a total of
four birds in the bayou. And they were
all just standing there, motionless
- not feeding, not fishing, not even
looking for fish. Because there are
no fish anymore. Maybe they were
waiting for the Promised Land.
Clam Bayou isn't just dying. It's
damn near dead. And some day, we
may all have to answer for the fact
that we just stood by and watched it
die.

used to party. Seriously party. I
didn't even get ready to go out
until 11 pm, and then I'd drive all
the way toYbor to join the debauchery.
Those days had a time and place in
my life, but I don't miss them.
Even though I'm technically a
"college kid," my weekend bedtime is
not.far from my school-night bedtime.
A glass of wine and a rousing game of
Scrabble are a good Friday night.
: However, I do still have friends who
have not succumbed to a life of quite
domesticity, and sometimes these
friends successfully lure me out on
the pretense of having "a few drinks."
Last Friday was just such a night.
' I got the call, as usual, late in the
evening. My friend Bryan and his
band, Hey There, Battleship were
playing at the Emerald Bar downtown.
bid we want to go?
II said yes for several reasons,,but the
tnost important one being: I do not
want to grow old before my time, a
shriveled shell of my former cool self
(if such a thing ever existed).
SUnfortunately, I forgot to check my
calendar.
* As many of you know, last Friday
was First Friday. In Gulfport that
means Art Walk a chilled out stroll
amongst the shops and mellow bands,
sipping wine and coffee until the wee
hours of 10 pm. St. Pete celebrates
the first Friday of the month a little
differently.


What I have always called First
Friday in St. Pete is actually and
officially known as (I am not making
this up) "Get Downtown." As in Get
down, town! Groovy, baby.
But, while the name might be a little
out of style, apparently everyone and
their cousin loves this chaotic block
party situated between 2nd and 3rd
Streets on Central Avenue. I mean,
there must be a million people there.
And, while the party is supposed to
peter out around 10, the kids in St.
Pete are just getting started.
If this sounds like your cup-o-tea,
check it out. But, I warn you: parking
becomes an Olympic event and you
could wait up to a decade for a drink
sandwiched in between Paris Hilton
wannabes and their cologne-drenched
counterparts.
It's an event I usually skip, if you
want to know the truth. I prefer my
downtown on the down low. However,
Bryan's band was tuning up around
11, and it's important to support local
music especially if it's your friends.
The Emerald is a dive bar on Central
Avenue, round about 6th Street. Their
profile on AOL's City Guide (which was
apparently written in 1965) sums it up
as a hangout for "war vets, musicians,
artists, divorcees and other sundry
misfits and hipsters."
That might be true, but here's my
take on it: The Emerald is a raucous
smoke den about the size of my first

apartment in Boston. It's one of the
last remaining places in St. Petersburg
where you don't have to be something
you're not. When the BayWalk crowd
starts to bug you, check out the
Emerald.
So there I was, sipping a beer and
enjoying the din after Hey There,
Battleship attacked the crowd with
their three-piece funk. Suddenly I
found myself at one of those pivotal
points in a night: should I stay or
should I go now?
The answer was to go...to the Bishop
Tavern on First Avenue North.
When I tell you that Get Downtown
was still getting' down, I mean it had
whipped itself into a dervish-style
frenzy and apparently the Bishop
was its center point. Under normal
conditions, J like the Bishop. It's
comfortable with a hint of 1920s
speak-easy style that makes you feel
as though a much larger and older
city waits outside. However, on the
weekends it suddenly turns into a
sardine can only slightly less smelly.
There's even a velvet rope at the
entrance which, next to St. Petersburg's
still-small town disposition, simply
reeks of pretension.
After a twenty minute conversation
in line for the bathroom, I booked it
over to Don Leoncio's Cigar Lounge
about a block up the avenue.
Ah, the smell of good cigars, big
leather couches, lots of imported beer
- these are a few of my favorite things,
and Don Leoncio's has them all. The
place opened up maybe six months
ago, and I have often felt that it's still
searching for its niche. For the record,
I don't think thumping techno and
rave kids is it, but maybe Don Leo's
was just trying something new Friday
night. Personally, I'd love to see a live
salsa band, but that's just me.
For the last drink of the evening, my
friends and I settled into the street
seating out front. With the techno a
few decibels lower, I was actually able
to talk with an old friend I've hardly
seen since high school. That's what
life in the little-big city is all about.
And for the record, I didn't hit the
sack until 2:30. True story.

Skeletons and Scandals: The Road to Council

Christine Brown's ads in The Accordi

have raised eyebrows and ire.

"I didn't want to do these ads;
I stayed up until two or three
in the morning struggling with Minh
these ads. But the lies she
told about me last time hurt E et

sit back and fight for what I

only way to let them know is to tell
the truth.

ethics violations as well as other im-
proprieties.
"Ms. King... did not even know it was
in her ward," Brown's ad alleged.
"I don't believe I ever said that,"
King said. "I own property directly
across the street from Clam Bayou.
I've lived in Gulfport for 20 years, I
walk my dog in Clam Bayou, I've run
for this office three times, I think I
know where my ward is."
Marty and Carolyn Needleman
told The Gabber "the four of us (the
Needlemans and Al and Cindy Da-
vis, all members of Gulfport Water
Watch) were in her office when that
happened. We were dumbfounded."
King further addressed other alle-
gations from Gulfport Water Watch
as well as Brown that she refused to
meet with Gulfport Water Watch.
"I refused to go to Al Davis' house. I
suggested council chambers instead."
King added that she also refused a
-boat ride from Al Davis. "I didn't feel
that that was necessary."
Other issues include Brown's alle-
gations that King failed to disclose
income, including rental properti-es

across the country.
King maintains she has
done no wrong. Brown
said she didn't disclose
her council income and
rental property income;
King said she did what
the paperwork required.
"We filled out the finan-
cial report the way the
instructions said- it said
"you need not list your
public salary received
from serving in the posi-
tion that requires you to
file this form'," King said.
Furthermore, she added,
the instructions said to
only list properties in
Florida and added that
she doesn't own the Cape
Cod property Brown
mentioned. "It's a link to
somebody else's bed and
breakfast."
As for the income from
her rental property? "We
don't make money on the
tbur-plex. The four-plex
had a $10,000 loss this
year. We did have rents


from it but we didn't make any money
on it, and that's why Will didn't count
it." Will, King's husband, serves as
her campaign treasurer.
Brown
also criti-
ci z e d .
King for
voting to -
"close the
beach to
all boat-iI
ers".
"We .
voted on
the Coun-
cil not to let dinghies anchor on the
stretch of beach-across from On The
Rocks and O'Maddy's. We built a
dinghy dock instead so that those
dinghies could be regulated because
we were trying to regulate the live
aboards" King said, adding that
Council also explained such mea-
sures wouldn't last forever, just until
the City got derelict vessels under
control.

Skeletons and Scandals: The Path to Mayor


By Cathy Salustri

Marlene Shaw


"In comparing your resume
and your employment ap-
plication to the City of
Gulfport with official school
transcripts.., there appears
to be a conflict in the public
record. This constitutes a
violation of City of Gulfport
Personnel Manual- Section
16.03 Offenses:
"Falsification of a personal
or City record..." Paula Co-
hen, Community Services
Director, City of Gulfport,
June 18, 2001, in a memo to
Marlene Shaw, at the time
the Events Manager for-
Gulfport.
On her June 1999 applica-
tion to the City, Shaw said
she had a 4.0 college grade
point average. On the re-
sume she submitted as part
of her application, Shaw
again said she had earned
"forty accumulated credits...
with a 4.0 grade average."
Shaw's personnel records
show that City staff re-
quested copies of her college
transcripts when they hired
her.
The transcripts, also a part o
personnel record, reflect a 3
age. After a pre-disciplinary
Cohen sent Shaw a discipline

"I brought it up because I was being
considered for a supervisory position,"
Shaw remembered. "It was an error,
something that was at a very tragic
period in my life,"
"I found my mother having had com-
mitted suicide. You can imagine at 18
years old what a tragic period that
is. All I can say is that I must have
blocked that period of my life. It was
an error on my part and I was the
one who brought it forth," Shaw said,
"Technically, if they believed it was
intentional, I would have been fired.
They told me that."
The City suspended Shaw for for five


days without pay
and extended her
probationary period
to one year.
"It was a sincere
error that I made on
my resume," Shaw
insists "It was a re-
sult of a very tragic
period in my life and
I must have blocked
it out. I don't know
what to say."

Mike Yakes
On February 21,
the St. Petersburg
Times ran an ar-
ticle that said "Mike
Yakes has been cit-
ed in a state ethics
complaint that al-
leges he lied about
his involvement in
a company that was
awarded business
contracts with the
city."
The State Ethics-
Commission told
The Gabber they had
no public record of
such a complaint- or
any others- against
Mayor Mike Yakes.
The State doesn't
make such com-
plaints public until
an investigation
ends.
Rick Gilbert, who
owns Gulfport Flo-
rist and'actively sup-
ports Clark Scherer's


campaign, provided
The Gabber with a
copy of the complaint he filed with the
State Commission on Ethics. Gilbert
alleges that Yakes should not have
voted to award Florida Educational
Youth Training Corporation (FEYT)
a three year
annual mow-
ing contract
as well as
a $55,000
brick restora-
tion contract.
Yakes serves

Brown has also said that King "ac-
knowledged that she knew nothing
about mooring fields yet still voted
against it."
"That's absolutely false," King said
"I have more information about moor-
ing fields than anyone else on coun-
cil. I have a folder on mooring fields
that's at least three inches thick."
In the same ad, Brown said that on
April 7 of last year King said that
"merchants are only renters, so they
don't count."
"The people that were at the meet-
ing heard her say that," Brown said.
King denies saying that.
"Do I feel that way? No, not at all,
and I think my actions tell that."
Another ad accused King of voting to
not allow a fence of a certain height
"perhaps for an enhanced view of the
bay for the $695,000 home next door
listed for sale by King". The fence
height, according to Brown, "was
agreed upon by the homeowners af-
fected."
"Mr. Hollander, who that fence af-
fected, did not agree on that or he
wouldn't have come to Council and


pleaded his case. He agreed '6n a
fence that was a foot lower," King
remembered. "The fact that I hve a
house listed on that corner? The liv-
ing space is upstairs; you can't :even
see the fence. Seems to me someone
didn't watch council that evening or
didn't care."
"I watched it (the meeting) on TV
and I sat down with the city man-
ager because I wanted to have all
the facts. I wanted to be thorough,"
Brown said.
Finally, Brown said that "two cam-
paign ethics complaints were filed
against Ms. King during the last elec-
tion for inappropriate practices. How
many ethics complaints will need to
be filed this election? Does she have
a hidden agenda?"
The Florida Elections Commis-
sion does have record of two ethics
complaints filed by Christine Brown
against King during the last election.
One complaint accuses King of mak-
ing false statements; the other charg-
es that King didn't list all campaign
expenditures on the report.
The Commission responded to the
ethics complaints on March 30 and
April 5 2005, Public records show

Courtland Yarborough
While
drive -
ing from
Charles-
ton to
St. Pete
in 1981,
Yarbor- 1W
ough had :

beer. As L
traffic
through Tampa thickened he decided
to pull over for a nap. When a police
officer came to the car window and
started questioning Yarborough, he
decided to give him a breathalyzer
test.
By Yarborough's own admission, he
refused the test.
"At the time, it seemed the thing to
do- why give them more evidence?"
Yarborough said last week as he
sipped a soda on AquaBella's upper
deck. To a college student it may
have seemed "the thing to do", but
refusing a breathalyzer test meant
that Yarborough lost his license.
He also spent the evening in jail.
When he got out, he had to find an-
other way back to the Citadel in
South Carolina. He got back up to
college, graduated, and went on with
his life.
When he decided to run for office,
he answered a standard set of ques-
tions for The Gabber, one of which
inquired about his arrest record. He
told The Gabber about the arrest and
added he had struggled with bad de-
cisions relating to alcohol. The DUI
in Hillsborough County came one
year after receiving his first in Pi-
nellas County. With a little liquor
in him, Yarborough admits he "went
through road construction like it was
a pylon course. Showing my ass is
what it was."
"Liquor makes me do really stupid
things, so I stay away from that."

It's a Birthday Party
I'd bet that you celebrate your
birthday on at least one day each
year! Well, the ladies of the United

28th Av. and 53rd Street S.) We will
decorate with.a tropical theme and
enjoy a chicken salad plate luncheon,
birthday cake, and entertainment by
a group who will be singing nautical
songs for us (with a bit of Irish hu-
mor, I expect.)
So call a friend, make a date, and
then call 321-3620 any morning to
reserve your place at the table. The
cost is $5 per person. Tickets will
also be sold before and after the tra-
ditional church service on Sunday.

officer FEYT.
"I made that well known that I was
on the board and received advice from
the City Attorney that it was not a
conflict," Yakes said.
Tim Driscoll, City Attorney, remem-
bers advising Yakes. Driscoll told The
Gabber that he felt Yakes' position
with FEYT did not represent a conflict
of interest.
"I think his ethics are perfect. I don't
think there's anything wrong with it,"-
Driscoll said.
Additionally, Gilbert alleges that
Yakes' stepson, Danny Yost, worked
for the company while it had a mow-
ing contract.
"Danny Yost never worked for Flori-
da Educational. Danny's 44, 45 years
old- too old for the program," accord-
ing to the Mayor. Public records con-
firm Danny Yost's age.
"I received no financial benefit; sim-
ply satisfaction on my part. I believe
strongly in these programs. The pro-
gram takes at risk young adults that
have not finished high school or have
challenges in their home life. It gives
them an opportunity to learn simple
job skills and be proud of themselves."


Finally, Gilbert alleges that Mayor
Yakes owns a company that leases
space to J Perry Cabinet Company.
According to Gilbert, "As required by
Gulfport City statute, an occupational
license must be obtained for this ten-
ancy and after checking with the City,
no license has been issued for occu-
pancy by the City of Gulfport."
Public records on file with the Gulf-
port Building Department show that
J Perry Cabinet has a Gulfport occu-
pational license as well as a Pinellas
County occupational license- and has
since January 14, 1997.
"I don't even know what that means,"
said Linda Lucas, who works in Gulf-
port Community Development's Oc-
cupational License division. "Mike
Yakes doesn't need to get anything
because he's leasing the space. If Jim
Perry has an occupational license he
can occupy the space."
"I don't understand why someone
would say that," Lucas added.

Clark Scherer
"I was just a contractor; I don't de-
velop anything," Clark Scherer said.
"I retired when my wife died, let one
of the boys take over the jobs I had.
I'm not doing any work now."

Division
of Corpo-
rations,
Scherer i
currently
serves
as Presi-
dent, Sec-
retary,
and Trea-
surer of Scherer Commercial Group,
incorporated in July 1988. The state
lists Scherer Commercial Group's ad-
dress as a St. Petersburg post office
box. Other than William Scherer, the
corporation's Registered Agent, the
corporation has no other officers.
State records also list Clark H. Scher-
er Junior as President and Treasurer
of Florida Coastal Engineering. Wil-
liam Scherer serves as Vice President,
Secretary, and Registered Agent. This
corporation lists 2815 Kavalier Drive
in Palm Harbor as its address. Florida
Coastal Engineering incorporated in
1988.
When asked about his involvement
with these corporations, Scherer said
that simply because he maintained
two active corporations didn't mean
he still worked.
"They're active corporations from the
standpoint that they're still listed as
corporations in the state of Florida,
but I don't carry the active business
licenses that are required to do work.
I ain't doin' nothing, Scherer said.
According to Florida State public
record, the Abby Company, a Coral
Springs company incorporated in 1970,
lost its corporation status on Decem-
ber 11 1976 for nonpayment of fees to
the Florida Division of Corporations.
Scherer served as Vice-President of
The Abby Company. Also in 1976
Scherer and his first wife, Laverne, in-
corporated Sun Construction Corpora-
tion, which the State dissolved three
years later because Sun Construction
failed to file an annual report. Until
the State dissolved the corporation,
Scherer served as Registered Agent
as well as President of Sun Construc-
tion.
To maintain an active corporation in
Florida, the corporation must file an
annual report as well as pay at least
$150 to file each annual report.

project to the end." Pat Kiesylis. Save Clam Bayou Committee since 1997

nellas County is so highly developed; you have to look for the nice green nooks that you can
ork in. Clam Bayou happens to be an oasis. It's been kno\ n historically as a pretty rich area.
'e'\ e got plenty of birds, fish, dolphin, manatees, e\en river otter" said Stormy Ingold. who
managed the Clam Bayou project for the Florida Department of Environmental protection.

"It could be a pristine area" said Dick Feinberg, the developer \\ho sold his 85 acres to
SWFWMID. "I am not an ecologist, but after the 3 phases are complete, it \\ill go a long to
improving after r quality"

"Plantings. trash removal and habitat rev ixal ha\e been the project's major elements.
The final phase to begin end of 2007 will combat pollution washing into the Bayou"

Becoming Part of the Tribu


As a new resident to Gulf-
port, I'm always afraid of
getting a little lost trying to
find my way to new places.
When driving to check out
the new Tribu Gallery, I was g
surprised to see a big bright
orange building marking my
destination. ,
The beautiful brilliant
colors continued inside as a
backdrop -to detailed ceram-
ics, paintings, and cases
lined with jewelry. The clay
tiles covering the wall are
what Tribu does the best.
The duo, owners Kevin Rit-
ter and John Rymer, work
mostly with clay creating
the tiles and sculptures lin-
ing their gallery.
"It [clay] gave us some-
thing three-dimensional to
work with," said John. Al-
though John is doing some
more whimsical work in
paintings, the two artists Owners a
continue to create inspiring something
tiles that remind us 'Great
dancers are not great be- tion.
cause of their technique;
they are great because of
their passion.' Like most other
pieces of artwork the tiles 'make
you think,' according to Kevin.
The two also create sculptures
that will soon be displayed in their
garden. Opening in late spring,
Tribu will have an outdoor gar-
den full of fanciful art that will be
open for any special events or tea
parties. Although you don't have
to wait for the garden to open to
get some tea.
During the day Tribu gallery also
acts as a coffee house with coffee,
tea, sweets, and light meals avail-
able. In fact, when I walked in I
got a nice whiff of chicken soup. It
smelled delicious. They also have
some sandwiches available for
a great lunchtime hangout or a
place to sit and talk with friends.
"We want to be part of the com-
munity," Kevin reiterated. In fact,
so much so, that's how they got
their name. Tribu means 'tribe' in .


.


nd artists, Kevin Ritter and John Rymer, display what they do best. They want to give you
g to think about and a little inspiration with the clay tiles perfect for a little wall decora-


Spanish, explaining their desire
to be part of the community, and
how much the community has sup-
ported them thus far.
Originally from a small town in
Ohio, the two artists began sell-
ing artwork 20 years ago at local
shows and eventually went into
wholesale art. They wanted more,
and decided to look for a place with
community, sun, beach, and art to
start their gallery. The Gulfport
area made the short list.
After finding an old restaurant
building to take over, the two be-
gan building their new destiny.
The orange building wasn't just
some gimmick, it just a glimpse of
who they are.
"The more colors the better," they
both agreed.
In fact you can check out the
place for yourself to see the art
and see a little into what Kevin
and John are all about. On March
31 between 11 am and 4 pm they


will be hosting "Inspired Satur-
day" for thier patrons. Life Coach
Carla Vaughan will be on hand
to answer two questions for free.
Motivational performance artist
Henry McClenahan will do a per-
formance piece from "wheels, wit
and wisdom" taken from the pages
of his autobiography.
And as always they will feature
artwork with writings that will in-
spire and uplift.
