City Council rejected all bids conditions will change. The

I'll Have Music With
My Oysters, Please
According to the Gulfport
police, although people consis-
tently call to complain about
the noise level at AquaBella's
restaurant on Beach Blvd., the
restaurant remains within le-
.gal sound limits. Officers have
checked and found that the
noise levels are within the es-
tablished ranges.
Police have warned all busi-
nesses that a valid noise com-
plaint (verified with the decibel
meter) will result in a ticket.

A Plan and a

Mooring Field
By Cathy Salustri


As sailboats sailed across Boca Ciega Bay Monday
afternoon, Lori Roach crouched over thick black
binders that could alter their course.
Roach, assistant to Gulfport City Manager Tom
Brobeil, assembled Gulfport's Harbor Management
Plan for City Council. The plan attempts to solve a
myriad of harbor issues, including but not limited
to anchoring issues in Gulfport Harbor.

Scout Hall,
from front page

-The additional costs would have
brought the total expenditure to
$274,480.
The City has received a grant from
the United States Department of
Housing and Urban Development in
the amount of $198,000 for the proj-
ect. The grant will remain in good
standing for about 40 months, ac-
cording to Jim O'Reilly, director of
leisure services for the City. The de-
lay caused by the re-bidding does not
currently put the grant in jeopardy.
Architectural and construction
management services were contract-
ed in fiscal year 2006 in the amount
of $21,000. This amount carried
forward to fiscal year 2007 and the
budgeted amount for the project had
been increased from $226,000 to
$247,000 to be inclusive of the archi-
tectural fees. The amount budgeted
over grant monies is $49,000 and
would be funded through Penny for
Pinellas funds, but the total amount
of funds available for construction
remains at $226,000, leaving a defi-
cit of $48,480 if the current low bid
had been accepted.
The bid from Eveland Brothers, Inc.
was under the $293,150 estimated by
Renker Eich Parks Architects, but
Council was unanimous in its feeling
that project stay within the amount
the City has available for the job.
"When I redid my kitchen I wanted
custom cabinets, but they were too
expensive," said council member Mi-
chele King. "I had to go back and
rethink my plans and find ways to
stay within my budget. That's what
I think we need to do here."
During public discussion of the
proposals, recently defeated mayoral
candidate Clark Sherer suggested
to the Council that they go back to

least another six months.


the low bidder and ask them to do
"value engineering," a process where
a construction firm goes back over a
bid line by line to find ways to adjust
processes or slash expenditures to
bring the bid into alignment with the
amount available for the project.
City manager Tom Brobeil ex-
pressed some concerns about that
proposal. "We didn't have any gold
fixtures planned," he stated. "We
were already at minimums in terms
of bringing in the building up to code
in many areas. I'm afraid the council
may be disappointed if they want to
try and save a large sum of money
through value engineering. It won't
take many cuts to be bumping up
against code standards."
While expressing agreement that
the bids received were too high,
mayor Michael Yakes was visibly
agitated about the continuing delays
in a project that has drug on through
the administrations of several city
councils.
"We've ping ponged this thing

around for ten years and frankly its
wearing me out," said Yakes. "I don't
think we should frivolously spend
money, but I really don't want this to
bounce this around for another two
years."
There was also considerable discus-
sion about whether the building had
a planned purpose or if it was simply
being saved because of its historical
significance to the community.
"I do believe there is a need for the
building," said council member Bob
Worthington. "If we can ever get it
renovated, I think that a number of
scouting troops will return and use it
and it will be available for use by the
Historical Society and other not-for-
profit groups in the City for all sorts
of functions."
The present building was con-
structed in 1920 as the Pentecostal
Church and was moved from its for-
mer location near 26th Avenue and
49th Street in 1937. Its current lo-
cation at 5317 28th Avenue South is
the site of the original Gulfport City
Hall. Over the years the structure
was adapted to various uses includ-
ing a community center and a meet-
ing hall for the Boy Scouts and Girl
Scouts.
Council finally decided to reject all
the bids, discuss possible value en-
gineering plans with the,low bidder
and wait six months to see if market
conditions might change and lower
potential costs. No specific date was
set yet for the re-bidding process.

larger down payment is that your .
mortgage payments will be lower. For i
another, it means you'll be in a better
position to qualify for a larger loan.
However, something else to consider is
just how much of your monthly income
should be used for mortgage payments.

AND THE

LAW

How is Your Legal Health?
Part 2
In our last article, the need for pe-
riodic legal checkups was examined.
The following are some of the legal
problems which may be uncovered
by a legal checkup:
Wills and Estate Planning
An indicator of good legal health
usually includes having a valid will
and some basic estate plan. If you
don't have a will, your personal and
real property may not be distributed
in accordance with your desires. In
addition, unnecessary expenses and
taxes may be incurred and certain
family members could possibly in-
herit your assets contrary to your
desires.
A trust is another effective estate
planning document. A trust allows
you to transfer property to your des-
ignated heirs utilizing a successor


trustee to implement your specific
instructions. If you create a trust
in a last will and testament, this is
called a testamentary trust. Another
form of trust is a living trust, which
is created by a written contract.
Living trusts are very useful estate
planning tools for everyone not only
the very wealthy. A living trust as-
sists in the avoidance of probate and
will help in keeping your affairs out
of the public record and private.
It is critical to review your estate
planning documents whenever im-
portant changes in your life occur.
If you marry, move to a new state,
have a child or lose a loved one, an
update of your legal documents may
be necessary. Also, it is an excellent
idea to discuss with your lawyer if
your estate plan is keeping pace with
the value of your property and is up-
dated to address changes in Florida
law and tax laws. Revisions may be
made with the drafting of new docu-
ments or an amendment to existing
documents may be necessary. It is
important to never make a change in
your old will or trust by writing on or
crossing out words or phrases which


you want to eliminate as this may in-
validate your documents.
Divorce
A lawyer should be consulted if your
marriage is ending or you are con-
templating ending your marriage.
Issues concerning child custody, fi-
nancial support and a fair division of
the marital property will need to be
addressed. If your spouse threatens
to harass or harm you, hide marital
property or take your children in
violation of your visitation or cus-
tody rights, a lawyer can assist you
in seeking protection against these
improper acts of your spouse.

ney of the Estate and Trust Division

1135 Pasadena Ave. So.,.Ste. 140, St.

ber 727-347-5131. Mr. Myers wel-
comes call regarding this article and
other related legal topics. This col-

advice. If you have a specific question

Mooring Field,
from front page
Brobeil first suggested a compre-
hensive harbor management plan
several years ago, when council
charged the still-new-to-Gulfport
city manager with solving derelict
vessel issues.
"Rather than attempting to forbid
that activity," Brobeil said in July
2004 "which would probably be il-
legal anyway, we're going to try to
regulate it." By "it", Brobeil referred
to boats anchored in Gulfport Har-
bor, one major impetus behind the
mooring field and Harbor Manage-
ment Plan.
Council rejected the mooring field
and the harbor management plan
"due to intense public opposition,"
according to Brobeil, who also cited
lack of public input as a major rea-
son the mooring field initially met
with such opposition. Instead, May-
or Mike Yakes, Brobeil, and other
city staff appealed to the state for
help in cleaning up the Harbor. The
city spearheaded legislation that
gave city and county governments
power to deal with derelict ves-
sels in waterways adjacent to their
boundaries. Their efforts did not
address any other harbor manage-
ment issues; council directed Bro-
beil to revisit the idea of a mooring
field.
Brobeil, supported by research and
the bxperrenres of'othefrcoastal cit
ies, believed a mooring field in Gulf-
port Harbor would not solve all the
problems, so, with the blessing of
council, his suggested Harbor Man-
agement Plan evolved into a work-


ing document, supported by citi-
zen input, budget projections, and
countless hours of staff research.
The proposed plan includes the
results of last year's mooring field
charette, where citizens told city
staff if they wanted a mooring field,
where they wanted it, and what
they wanted it to include.
The plan covers the proposed
mooring field by the Casino, live
aboard boaters, proposed costs, and
projected revenues. It attempts to
address the minutiae of managing
a mooring field (pump outs, moor-
ings, rentals, and other details) and
looks at State law to handle some
issues.
The city estimates the mooring
field, "the only major facility in the
Harbor Management Plan that is
not currently available", will cost
almost a quarter of a million dol-
lars to build. Additionally, the city
would have to obtain a submerged
land lease from the state; this
would cost roughly $50,000 annual-
ly. Projections included in the plan
estimate mooring field revenue at
almost $80,000 a year.
The plan makes no provision for
regulating boats not on the mooring
field.

The City will hold a Mooring Field
Meeting at 6:00 p.m. tonight (Thurs-
day, March 29) at City Hall in Coun-
cil Chambers. Brobeil will present
"''~ the proposed Harb6 Manamgement
Plan and take comments from the
audience. To review the proposed
Harbor Management Plan, please

not all there that Sunday). Most
of them are in their 80's and the
band was very humorously em-
ceed by Leo Perry. They dem-
onstrated the various types and
sizes of harmonicas from the
very large instruments to tiny 1-

Mayor Yakes Proposes Tax Cuts
By Cathy Salustri

The people have spoken, and Mayor Mike Yakes says he has heard them.
Yakes won his reelection campaign by less. than 600 votes. In the weeks
preceding the election, one of his opponents, Clark Scherer Jr., criticized
Yakes, blaming him for high taxes.
"The accusations were unfounded," Yakes said of Scherer's charges.
With the election behind him, Yakes has paused to consider what those
who didn't vote for him wanted from Gulfport.
"I want people to know that I do plan to lower the ad valorem with the
support of Council," Yakes said.
Yakes wants to do this through a series of largely internal changes. He
wants Gulfport to have more interlocal agreements whereby cities share
the cost of certain services.
"Interlocal agreements won't hurt us or take away jobs," Yakes promised.
In addition to combining services with neighboring cities, Yakes said he
would also like to see less city involvement in certain areas.
"Politics does not belong in every spoken word in a city," he said.
Most notable of Yakes' suggestions? He wants to hire a full-time attorney
and couple the Clerk's office with the Attorney. Currently Gulfport con-
tracts its legal services with Tim Driscoll, who maintains his own law office
as well. Yakes feels a staff attorney would bolster efficiency.
"Ordinances and reviews that we have on a daily basis requires a phone
call and a call back. I wish to combine our legal services with the City
Clerk's office so that we will have one full time city attorney and one city
clerk." Yakes said.
Yakes wants the city to hire entry level staff for the Clerk and Attorney
positions, which he estimates would save nearly $200,000 annually. Both
the Clerk and Attorney serve at the pleasure or displeasure of the Coun-
cil.
He stressed that he wants only to change things that won't hurt Gulfport.
"I won't change how we run the Senior Center or how we run the Rec cen-
ter. That's sacred ground; that's ours."
He hopes that the changes could help bring back things like the 4th of
July parade.
"The 4th of July, the car show that we lost... that's what makes us a com-
munity, not a city."

Food for Thought
Dear Editor: The secret is out
that Gulfport is a beautiful, quaint,
friendly little town. For me, it has
been the most comfortable place I've
ever lived. I think most of us are
hoping that it stays this way.
It has great balance, an interesting
history, a comfortable presence and
a nice future.
The entertainment all around town
is great and unique. I just love this
artistic little place!
However, recently there have been
quite a few new businesses opening
up in town and, as a lot of us may
know, parking has become difficult.
Many of us who have our homes here
are losing the convenience of park-
ing on city property in front of our
Homes, especially during the events
that take place. Those who visit here
are also experiencing the difficulty


in finding a parking space.
Many times I drive by the huge open
space on Clymer Park and wonder if
maybe it could be used for parking
spaces. I believe it's only occupied
for three to five special events a year
and during those events, parking
cars and trailers is what the space
is used for.
The City already has the expense of
maintaining this property, so maybe
they could generate revenues by uti-
lizing this area for parking.
Maybe our trolley could be even
more conveniently for transporting
people to and from this parking area
as well as around town.
If this is possible then I believe that
those of us who have our homes or
businesses here and those who visit
and the City itself would all benefit.

Gabber March 22 March 28, 2007



















Excuse me if I talk about myself
too much in this column. I try
not to do that, usually; this
space is too valuable to waste on self-
involvement, on narcissism.
But it's been a disheartening couple
of weeks.
For starters, my second column on
Clam Bayou ran in this space two
weeks ago, following the first one
three weeks earlier. I was not happy
with either one of them by the time
they reached print. .
Not that I want to take back anything
I said two weeks ago; I don't. Clam
Bayou is in such bad shape, it's nearly
dead. And we have, indeed, stood by
for years and watched St. Petersburg
fill it up with runoff and every kind of
trash that the southern part of that
city has to offer.
But the column felt incomplete, to me.
That is often the case, but it is particu-
larly so this time around. Maybe it's
because things are happening faster
than I can keep up with them. In this
case, things were happening even as I
sat at the computer and typed.
Some of our city officials are now
paying attention to Clam Bayou, and
are trying to do something about it. I
didn't give them credit in the last col-
umn.
For instance, Mayor Yakes invited
Senator Bill Nelson's office and rep-
resentatives from the Army Corps
of Engineers to come and look at the
bayou, and they did. And he and the
city manager met with representa-
tives of the National Oceanic and
Atmospheric Administration to talk
about Clam Bayou and what needs to
be done there.
And Councilman Worthington got
the City Council to pass a resolution
pointing out the problems at Clam
Bayou and asking Sen. Nelson for his
support in pushing St. Petersburg and
Swiftmud into action.
So things are being done, and at least
two members of City Council are trying
to do more thanjust pay lip service to the

VIEWPOINT

mess that Clam Bayou has become.
Too little too late? I hope not.
Then there was the election. What to
say about the election? I've been at a
loss for words; it wasn't pretty.
I abhor what has been happening
in elections in recent years, at the
national level and all the way down:
the us-versus-them mentality; the
mean-spirited campaigning; the ac-
cusations and the half-truths and the
innuendo.
And now it has come to Gulfport. We
haven't had it here before, at least in
the years that I've lived here. Maybe
before that probably before that, but
not recently. The tension was visible,
even on the TV screen, at the candi-
date debate just before the election.
And what did all this negative cam-
paigning bring us? The two incum-
bents won, as usual, which is pretty
much par for the course here in Gulf-
port. Perhaps some challengers in-
creased their percentage of the vote a
bit, but that's about it. And we were
relieved, or at least I was, when it was
all over.
I started the campaign with a good
idea how I intended to vote. I ended
it by not being sure I wanted to vote
at all. Seriously. Welcome to modern
politics!
And then there's the addition the
addition to our house, the one we've
been thinking about for some time
and have been actively looking into in
recent weeks.
We love our home and are very hap-
py with it, with what we've done to it.
The only problem is that it's small.
We use every square inch of it, and
we have no room for guests, overnight
guests no room at all, anymore. So
we've been thinking about adding on
guest quarters, what I refer to as "a
motel room in the front yard." At this
point in our lives, we want family and
friends to be able to come and stay for
a few days, even a week or two.
So we thought and we talked and
we came up with a figure we hoped it
might cost. And then we started talk-


ing to other people. And. after that, we
started talking to builders.
And you guessed it: each step of the
way, the price went up. And each
builder we talked to, the price got even
higher.
So now we're back to square one. Do
we really want to do this? Do we want
to spend this much money? Maybe
more to the point, is this how we want
to spend our money?
It's been discouraging. Or disheart-
ening the word I used at the begin-
ning of this column. It will cost more
to build this bedroom with bath than
it cost us to buy the house in the first
place. Of course, it will add to the value
of the house, down the road, but that
doesn't make much difference now.
So there's more thinking and talk-
ing and considering to do. And I guess
we're a little wiser, now; that's the
only positive spin I can put on it.
Wiser about house-building anyway,
if not about electronics. The recent
time change taught me that.
As you all know, we switched to Day-
light Savings Time three weeks ear-
lier this year. Big deal! Get up Sunday
morning and change all the clocks.
Some are easy to do and some, these
days, require an instruction manual.
Two clocks I've never had to mess
with, much, were those on the com-
puter and on the VCR/DVD player.
They were somehow preset to change
themselves automatically.
Not this year. I guess they weren't
programmed to keep track, of 1s
passed by the U.S. Congress. So I had
to reset them. And I'll probably have
to do it again on the first Sunday in
April, the old change date.
The computer was no problem. But
the VCR/DVD player? I almost gave
up. This is at least the fourth such
piece of equipment we've owned, each
one more "advanced" and complicated
that the last. This one has so many
buttons on the remote control and so
many functions that I get lost. And
the labels on the remote are so small, I
need a magnifying glass to read them.
So it took me half the morning to fig-
ure out how to change the time, even
though I've adjusted the time in the
past. It made me feel old and incompe-
tent and in need of a 12-year-old.
I've recovered now, and I don't want
to be 12 again. I guess I just needed to
vent. Thanks for listening. I feel better
already.

Summer Recreation
Fees Approved
While fees for Gulfport's popular

legislative action which expands the
summer vacation period by the same
amount. Students will be off school
,from May 20 through August 20. The
original date for school sessions to re-
sume prior to the state legislative ac-
tion had been August 6.
Additionally, the program will be
expanded to include extended hours
covering child supervision from the
program's end at 5:30 p.m. until 6:00
p.m. at a cost of $5.00 per week for
residents and $10 per week for non-
residents.
The full rate schedule will be posted
in the Gabber or is available by calling

able on the City's website at www.

ADA Issues
at Gulfport Casino
At last week's Gulfport City Council
meeting, a resident complained about
the lack of handicapped access at the
Casino. After that meeting, City Man-
ager Tom Brobeil investigated and
found that curbs do meet accessibility
standards. Brobeil did note that the
Casino does not have an automatic
door opener. Brobeil has asked staff
to find out the cost of installing self-
opening doors on the facility.

SPORTS FACT

'Bobbi' Gibb's trot heard round the world
In 1966, it was commonly accepted that women were incapable of
running distances of more than 800 yards, let alone the 26 miles, 385
.yards of a marathon. So it was to be expected in February 1966 that
Roberta "Bobbi" Gibb s application to run in the Boston Marathon
would be refused. But Gibb was not easily deterred. On race day, she
put on a pair of Bermuda shorts, tank top and a hooded sweat shirt, and
hid in the bushes near the starting line. When the race started, the
disguised Gibb joined the pack. Soon, the male runners around Gibb
realized they were keeping pace with a woman. Gibb took off the heavy
sweat shirt, and now the press was
aware that history was in the
making. Three hours and 21
C. minutes later, Gibb.
-crossed the finish line to
the sound of cheers and
camera flashbulbs in
front of two-thirds of the
male field.

Paint facts
The properties of paint determine the quality of the coating. As
a rule of thumb, thp higher'the amount of pigment and binder,
the better quality the paint. Paint has four main ingredients that
determine the coating properties and function.


LIQUID or (solvent)
is the part of the
paint that
evaporates. Its role
is to keep the paint
liquid for ease of
application.


BINDERS or
(resins) bind
together pigments
that provide a
tough finish, which
adheres well to the
surface.


* High-quality exterior latex
paint can last 10 years or more,
compared to less than 5 years
for a low-cost paint.


ADDITIVES are
ingredients that
provide properties
such as mildew .
resistance,
defoaming, good
flow and leveling.


PIGMENTS are
finely ground
particles that
provide paint its
opacity and color.


M Less expensive pigments
such as clay, carbonate,
silicates and talc are found in
expensive paints but are more
prevalent in low-cost paints.

Grass cutting
Lawn mowing, although often overlooked, greatly affects your
lawn's appearance and general health. Many lawns are mowed
too short, not frequently enough and/or with a dull mower blade.
1 -


. I
i i



A :. -, ..


Don't cut your grass too
short; higher cut height
usually provides for a
deeper root system.

MOWING TIPS:
m Cut no more than 1/3 of the
grass blade length each time you
mow to avoid stress that will
result in browning.
* High mowing helps create a
healthier lawn and helps block
out crabgrass and weeds.
m You can safely leave clippings
that will quickly decompose and
add nutrients to the soil.
m Change mowing patterns
frequently to prevent compaction.


"Son to Man", Black
Men's Support Group
"Son to Man" is a peer support
group for Black men in the Tampa
Bay area which deals with issues
that are germane to the plight Black
men encounter on a day-to-day basis
in addition to living with HIV/AIDS.
It offers a safe environment for men
to share personal experiences those
not living with AIDS might not iden-
tify with or understand.
If you need us or know a brother
that needs to talk, yell or scream
about the life he now has to live be-
cause of AIDS, please get this infor-
mation to him.
We need to understand that this
disease is killing our future, present
and has already claimed many of
our ancestors that paved the way for
our successes.
The "Son to Man" support group
meets every Tuesday fro m 6 p.m. to
7 p.m. at Operation HOPE Offices,
861 6th Ave. South, St. Petersburg.

College
Financial Aid Myths
Don't believe these college financial
aid myths.
Myth #1: You can't afford college.
The truth is most college students
require some form of financial aid.
Don't ignore college because of its
"sticker price".
Myth #2: You have to be very poor,
very smart or very talented to qual-
ify for financial aid. Financial aid
comes in many forms such as the
federal government, the college or
university itself, a parent's employer
and others. When you take the time
to explore all the possibilities, you
will be surprised as to what services
you may receive.
Myth #3: You can get more scholar-
ships by paying someone to search
for you. Scholarship scams are ev-
erywhere. Beware of any group or
individual that guarantees a schol-
arship if you pay a fee. Check out
www.fastweb.com or www.finaid.org
for more information.
Myth #4: My child will pay for col-
lege, so my salary doesn't matter.
Most need-based financial aid is
based on parents' income and assets.
The FAFSA form, available online


Your Wedding Our Cameras


at www.fasa.ed.gov asks ;for infor-
mation similar to what you ned for
your income taxes. After submitting
FAFSA, you'll receive a report that
shows how much the government
expects you to pay.
Myth #5: You can wait until you get
accepted to a college before worrying
about financial -aid. Most financial
aid is doled out on a first-come, first-
served basis. No one should wait to
get started. Looking for financial aid
probably isn't a teen's idea of a good
time, but it is better than graduat-
ing from college in debt.

Safeguard Your
Dogs Against Heat
Hot weather is often deadly for
dogs who can succumb to heatstroke
in just 15 minutes and suffer brain
damage as a result. Dogs who are
left in parked cars are especially
susceptible.
Symptoms of heatstroke include
restlessness, excessive thirst, heavy
panting, lethargy, lack of appetite,
dark tongue, vomiting and lack of
coordination. If you see a dog show-
ing any of these symptoms, get him
or her into the shade immediately
and call a veterinarian.


Get A Wedding Video


Lower the dog's body temperature
by providing water to drink, applying
a cold towel to the head and chest, or
immersing the dog in tepid (not cold)
water.
PETA (People for the Ethical Treat-
ment of Animals) makes the follow-
ing suggestions for safeguarding
animals.
Don't carry your dog in the bed of a
pickup truck.' While this practice is
always dangerous, heat brings the
added danger that dogs' feet might
be burned on hot metal.
Don't take your dog jogging, except
on cool mornings or evenings. Rest
often, and take plenty of water.
Trim heavy-coated dogs' fur, but
leave an inch of fur for protection
against insects and sunburn.
Keep dogs inside. If they absolutely
must stay outside, at least try not to
keep them outside during the hot-
test part of the day. Provide all-day
shade, drinking water in a heavy
bowl and a kiddie pool.

at HelpingAnimals.com.

Spring Clean Safely
When you start your spring clean-
ing, check your home for chipping
and peeling paint on window sills
and wells, doors, porches, and out-
side areas. These may contain lead -
if your house was built before 1978.
Lead can be harmful to children and
pregnant women. You'll need to wet
mop floors, porches and clean sills
with warm water and TSP (tri-sodi-
um phosphate) cleanser or an auto-
matic dishwashing powder that has
phosphates in it.
Vacuum all carpets and wood floors,
disposing of bag after use. If you're
asthmatic, wear a dust mask (from
hardware store); or use a microfilter
vacuum cleaner ag, or one with a
HEPA filter.
Clean moldy surfaces with a clean-
er containing bleach, but don't mix
bleach and ammonia as this can be
toxic. Remove imported vinyl mini-
blinds which can contain lead; avoid
using sanders and heat guns to re-
move old paint wet scrape flaking
paint; cover furniture, remove toys,
and seal off vents and cover carpets/
floors with heavy plastic sheeting
before beginning work; clean work
area thoroughly with household
cleanser containing TSP when work
is completed; wet sweep only; dry
sweeping or using a regular vacuum
can stir up leaded.dust.

ing your home lead-safe, call the

Feeling at Home in Little Italy


By Morgan Landis
March is the one year opening
for Gulfport's Pia's Trattoria. A
little over a year ago Pia Goff and
her husband, Tom, were walking
down Beach Boulevard, the wind
was coming in off the water and
the quaint feel felt familiar.
"Well this feels like home," Pia
said to Tom. Pia, originally from
Pozzuoli, Italy, came here with her
husband, a native Floridian, to live
after owning several restaurants
in Europe. They saw the need for
good food, the old ice cream store
was available, and a few months
later they were opening for busi-
ness.
Originally Pia just wanted to
open a coffee house with desserts, a
place to relax and sit with friends,
but decided to add some special
dishes of pastas and panini's that
people devoured. Pia loves mixing
ingredients to make her own dish-
es, and people kept asking for more,
so they kept adding to the menu.
Soon her small shop turned into
a Trattoria, which translated into
English, means 'eating house'.
And an 'eating house' is exactly
what it is. The place had a warm
feel to it when I walked in, and
once I headed to their outside din- -
ing area, I felt like I was transport-
ed to another place. They have soft
lighting with lamps and candles,
wooden tables covered in beautiful
cloths, a flower garden surround-
ing the eating area, and not only
friendly staff, but friendly custom-
ers as well. Pia says it's just like in
Europe's eateries; people are able
to sit and relax and end up mak-
ing friends with the tables next to
you.
Pia hears about people coming
from Tampa, visitors from New
York, and of course many Italians
from the surrounding area, driving
miles just to visit the 'Little Italy'
right here in Gulfport. She knows
of doctors, college students, and
seniors who come for the romantic,
cozy Old Italy feel. It is that feel
that gives the restaurant a perfect
place to pop the question, celebrate
an anniversary, make a first date

impression, and of course there
are those who have wedding recep-
tions there.
Of course, it's not only the at-
mosphere, but the amazing tastes
that linger for hours after the
meal. Pia only uses fresh natural
foods imported from Italy (includ-
ing the water) and then prepared
to order, which means it's made
especially for you, and hasn't been
sitting in a pan for hours waiting
for someone to eat it. Although
this does mean for a slightly lon-
ger wait, it's only meant to add to
the atmosphere. Pia doesn't want
you to feel rushed, she wants you
to take in the beautiful weather,
the intoxicating smells, and have a
chance to relax from the outside.

I was fortunate enough to try her
y Vegetarian lasagna, and if she can
give something that much flavor
without meat, I can only imagine
.-. Paid AdveUlterenN-


how amazing her other dishes are.
There are salads, lasagnas, pastas,
and more to choose from, all with
Pia's own mix of spices she learned
from home so the tastes can't be
duplicated in the United States.
If someone wants to know what
it's like to visit Italy, I recom-
mend spending an evening at Pia's
Trattoria. It's the most romantic
restaurant in the Tampa area, so
you'll definitely fall in love, not
only with the person you're with,
but with the tastes of Italy.

Museum of Fine Arts are blocks away, as is Baywalk and The Palladium theatre
complex and the many quaint and sophisticated restaurants that have graced the
downtown in recent years. Baseball lovers will find the home of the Tampa Bay Devil

hear the crack of bat against ball.
The Siena Downtown is easy to come home to, time after perfect time.

Dear Jenny,
I want to take this opportunity to thank you for assiting me in the sale of my Town Shores Condo.
As you are well aware, the past few months have been trying times for people who want to sell their property. In my case, my
wonderful wife, Mary, passed away suddenly and I was having difficulty trying to dispose of our condo. After months of
attempts to sell my place, I listed it with your real estate agency.
I have been very pleased with your professionalism and the manner in which you advertise and market your listings. Your
efforts on my behalf resulted in the sale of my condo. I am most appreciative of the efforts that you extended on my behalf.
I would recommend you to anyone that was either, selling or purchasing, a residence in Town Shores.
I wish you continued success in your real estate career.
Very truly.
