Retaliation Rare for Non-Mafia Crimes


By Cathy Salustri
When faced with calling the police to report
a crime or suspicious activity, some people
fear retaliation. When a Gulfport resident
mentioned this concern at Monday night's
Gulfport Crime Watch (GCW) meeting, De-
tective Joshua Stone tried to put their con-
cerns at rest.
"Criminals really thrive on the whole im-
plied fear thing, especially retaliation, but it

explained, "Maybe if you were a witness to a
homicide and the victim was in the mob..."
Stone also explained that criminals wouldn't
know who called 911 to report a crime.
Other key points of Tuesday night's meet-
ing included a burglary report and a question
and answer session where Stone addressed
issues and explained how the Gulfport Police
would work to resolve them.

Craft Festival on
St. Pete Beach
One-of-a-kind jewels, stained glass,
photography and personalized gifts
- all handmade in the United States
- will be on display on Saturday,
April 14 and Sunday, April 15 from
10 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day during
the 4th Annual St. Pete Beach Craft
Festival along Corey Avenue. Ad-
mission is free.
"Stroll among eclectic boutiques
and views of the ocean as you meet
200 of the nation's most talented
artisans," said Howard Alan, event
organizer.
Festival-goers can watch craft-
ers such as Patrick Gibson stitch-
ing leather moccasins and Sherry
Hedrick painting palm frond mask
creations as they stroll among glass
votives, embroidered fabric books,
terracotta fragrance diffusers, hand
cut silhouettes and much more. All
of the displayed work will be avail-
able for purchase, ranging from $15
to $3,000.
An expansive Green Market with
plants, orchids, exotic flora, hand-
made soaps, gourmet spices and
freshly popped kettle corn further
compliments the weekend, blending
nature with nurture.
Best of all, unlike other art festivals
or galleries, the artists themselves
will be on-hand to talk about their
work and take personalized orders
for commissioned pieces.

Decisions, Decisions, Decisions
In our last article, we briefly dis-
cussed three ways to give legal au-
thority to another person. This week,
let's take a look at how these legal
transfers of control and decision-mak-
ing work.
Guardianship
This is a legal process in which the
court places an individual or agency
in control of someone else's affairs.
Establishing a guardianship requires
action by the Court, it can be expen-
sive and cumbersome. In addition,
guardianship reduces an individual's
legal rights to those of a minor.
Conservatorship
This is a type of guardianship that
applies only to a person's property
and not his or her personal matters.
As such, its scope is less restrictive,
and the individual involved retains
many of his or her legal rights.
Durable Power of Attorney
By establishing a power of attorney,
you authorize someone else to act in
your behalf. You can give very limited
powers, such as authorizing someone
to sell property for you, or very broad
powers, such as paying bills, making


investment decisions, or making all
decisions for you.
SA durable power of attorney remains
in force even if the person who estab-
lishes it becomes incompetent. While
a power of attorney is generally estab-
lished to ensure that your affairs will
be handled for you, it must be durable
to be effective in the event of your in-
capacity. Any power of attorney, be-
comes null and void when either the
person granting it or the person to
whom it is granted dies.
You should be sure to specify exactly
what functions are to be covered by
the durable power of attorney. For
example, medical decisions, invest-
ment choices and property care can be
named specifically.
Of course, a durable power of attor-
ney should be given only to someone
you trust implicitly to act in your best
interest. You should consult an attor-
ney for the specific requirement of a
durable power of attorney.
Robert J. Myers is managing attor-
ney of the Estate and Trust Division
of Maney & Gordon, P.A., located at
1135 Pasadena Ave. So., Ste. 140, St.
Petersburg, FL. The telephone number
727-347-5131. Mr. Myers welcomes call
regarding this article and other related
legal topics. This column outlines gen-
eral legal principles and is not intended
to give you legal advice. If you have a
specific question about the law, please
consult an attorney.

Letters

Wood. Ibis Park
Dear Editor: This letter is in re-
gards to the Sierra Club planting at
Wood Ibis Park-Gulfport.
The police have been notified and
immediately responded regarding
plans to bulldoze this natural habit
adjacent to a bird sanctuary located
in back of the park. Upon my urgent
request they are looking to see if the
county has a license permit to bull-
doze in Gulfport. We really have to
investigate how legit this permit is.
I believe Pasadena Yacht Club may
wish to get rid of it, I believe it is
on their property. They have the
power to get a permit to bulldoze it
down if they choose to and use the
excuse that the Pumping Station on
this property needs digging up (why
choose the spring season to do it?).
There also has been some killing
off of a dozen chicks a few weeks ago.
It just so happens there are some
Pasadena Yacht Club homes located
on the back creek of the park.


I spent several hours Friday after-
noon with our city hall and trying to
contact the mayor. I was amazed at
the interest Gulfport has shown in
saving this area. Next are plans
to stir up this issue with the city
newspaper.
This overall scenario should prove
beneficial in giving a warning signal
that such destructive environmen-
tal acts will be investigated. Un-
like Gulfport, money rules Pinellas,
thus resulting in many environmen-
tal criminal acts in Pinellas County.
In the meantime I learned a lesson
that if you want things done, you
have to play politics.
Next environmental criminal act,
let's call the police or at least get af-
ter the mayor and the EPA. Please
help investigate this and don't let
Pasadena Yacht Club get away with
this. They are already major pollut-
ers of Boca Ciega Bay.

sunny weather for the clean up on

to work, everyone enjoyed the
breakfast donated by Palms of
Pasadena Hospital consisting of
orange juice, blueberry cupcakes
and coffee. Pick up sticks and
bags were available and everyone
left for their wurk area around 9
am. By 11:30 workers returned
for a lunch also donated by Palms
of hot dogs, chips, sodas and cook-
ies. This time there were hot
many unusual finds, the best one
was a lovely conch shell adorned
with tiny barnacles which was
brought in by Clayton Petersimes,
our nine year old helper. The fol-
lowing were our faithful workers:
Rose Hawthorne. Sibylle Stajich,
Mary Eidel, Linda Ford. Mary

Captain Robert Winslow (St. Pete) brings a group of new sailors back
to port at Saturday's Funfest at the Boca Ciega Yacht Club. Winslow
offered his sailboat for free rides as part of the day's festivities; the
Boca Ciega Yacht Club offers free sailboat rides every year at the event
in hopes of getting more people out on the water. The Boca Ciega Yacht
Club also arranges for free sailing lessons for'kids ages ten and up.
Marla Magin (St. Pete) throws the line ashore to help tie up the boat
at Saturday's Fun Fest. Gulfport Councilwoman Mary Stull attended
the event and, after speaking with many of the members at the Yacht
Club, agreed to accompany Gulfport Water Watch to the Vero Beach

ing fields before making a decision.

Crime, from front page.

Burglary "Not Bad"
"It's not bad," Stone said of the 17 burglaries in Gulfport
since last month'g GCW meeting. Of the burglaries, Zone
Four had nine, Zone Three had one, Zone Two had three,
and Zone One had four.
Of the 17 burglaries, 10 occurred in either an unlocked
home, with a key, or on an unlocked vehicle.
On March 24, the Kwik Stop had a burglary (the Kwik
Stop on 22nd Avenue South falls into Zone Four) when a
truck rammed into the glass doors, stole an ATM, and stole
roughly $1800.
"We have great video of that happening but it tells us noth-
ing we want to know," Stone said of the video. The video,
Stone said, didn't give officers a clear shot of the truck's
license plate.
Police made in arrest in Zone Three's lone burglary, as
they did in half of the Zone One burglaries.'
"It's been my experience that Zones Two and Four have
always been historically higher in property crimes, based
on the stats that I've seen." Stone said, but added that he
couldn't definitively say why last month saw lower crimes
in Zone Two than in Zone One.
Ernie Stone suggested that the Stetson area had fewer
burglaries because Stetson security officers patrolled the
neighborhood.

Who Fixes Street Lights?
Lisa Wright told Detective Stone that she had two street
lights out at 54th and 8th. She reminded that Stone that
she had learned the importance of exterior illumination
from an earlier GCW meeting.
"One of the problems we had was the small time burglary
things, maybe trying to break into a vehicle for theft. Since
we've all. put security lights in, we haven't had that prob-
lem," Wright said.
Others present at the meeting suggested Wright call Prog-


ress Energy directly, although Detective Stone said the
Gulfport Police could help Wright by contacting Progress
Energy as well.
Gabber Wrong?
Wright also said she resented this paper indicating that
Ward Four had higher crime rates than the other Gulfport
Wards. She said that she had property for sale in Ward
Four and felt that such reporting could hurt her chances of
selling her property.
Detective Stone said that while he felt the police gave
"49th Street the attention it deserves", Zone Four does have
higher crime rates than the other areas in Gulfport.
"Yes, we have a problem," Wright said "but not on the west
half of Ward Four. I need the Council to focus more on Ward
Four; I want them to recognize we are a part of Gulfport."

Business Crime Watch
Ernie Stone said he wants to get a representative from
every Gulfport business to attend next month's meeting
so they can develop a network to keep one another in com-
munication.
Stone encourages businesses to call in advance of next
month's meeting (322-0855).

Crime Watch Future
At future meetings, "we're going to expand," Stone said.
"We've been going on about burglaries for three or four
months, but there are other things I want to deal with- el-
der fraud, businesses, sexual predators."
GCW meetings will continue indefinitely on the second
Monday night of every month. GCW meets at 7 p.m. at the
49th Street Neighborhood Center.

Wanted
Wanted: Crime Watch Volunteers to help contact busi-
nesses for next month's meeting as well as create a flyer for
businesses. Please contact Ernie Stone (322-0855) to vol-
unteer.

Crime Watch Develops Business Component
By Cathy Salustri
At last week's Crime Watch meeting, Gulfport Crime Watch decided to start
building a 49th Street Business Network that will help businesses along 49th
Street combat crime.
"If one business gets robbed, I want to have a network in place where all
the other businesses know it so they can safeguard themselves," Ernie Ston",
head of Gulfport Crime Watch, told The Gabber. One example where such
a network could prevent crimes? The Gabber had a gentleman ask to use
the bathroom. He spent almost an hour in the bathroom; the next day the
building got robbed. With Stone's network in place, other businesses would
know what to expect and could better prevent crimes. The network would
alert businesses to crime trends and offer them a way to communicate their
needs to the City.
Stone wants'business leaders to attend so they, rather than people who
don't know their needs as well, can create a network and a plan that will
best help them. Stone hopes that the Gulfport Chamber of Commerce as well
as all the businesses along 49th Street South will attend- regardless of what
city they operate their business on.
Gulfport Crime Watch met on Monday, April 9 at the 49th Street Neighbor-
hood Center. For more information, please call Ernie Stone at 322-0855.

ADA Accessibility
In response to concerns raised by
a resident, Gulfport city staff ha-
vereviewed ADA accessibility issues
at the Casino Ballroom, the 49th
Street Neighborhood Center's Disston
Room, and Scout Hall.
As a result, the city will create addi-
tional two more handicapped parking
spots at the Casino (pending review
by the Gulfport Transportation Advi-
sory Committee).
Public Works staff has also adjusted
the amount of pressure required to
open the west doors of the Casino and
the doors at the 49th Street Neighbor-
hood Center's Disston Room, bringing
them into ADA compliance.
Scout Hall will come into compliance
as part of the proposed: restoration
project. City Manager Tom Brobeil
has asked staff to include the instal-
lation of automatic door openers at
the Casino Ballroom in the 2007-2008
budget.

Gulfport's Summer Recreation Pro-
gram has started accepting registra-
tions for kids from to 14 years old.
The City has opened registration to
Gulfport residents as well as non-
residents currently enrolled in the

Code Enforcement
Code Enforcement continues its
work in Section Five of Gulfport.
Section Five, also known as the Ma-
rina District, comprises the south-
east portion of Gulfport. It generally
extends south from 26th Avenue
South to the water and east from
49th Street South to the city limits.
Later this month Code Enforce-
ment will turn its attention to Sec-
tion One. This area, also known
as the Stetson Area, comprises the
northwest portion of the City and
generally extends south from 7th
Avenue South to Gulfport Boulevard
and east from 64th Street to 58th
Street.

Activities document or for more de-
tailed information and a map of the

Planning
Gulfport City Council has updated
and reprioritized the planning proj-
ect list. Council moved two items
to the top of the list: the flag ordi-
nance that would allow businesses
to put out "Open" flags (from #30 to
#2) and the sidewalk caf6 ordinance
(from #38 to #3).

Council has instructed staff to put
all other projects aside and focus on
these two projects. Staff anticipates
bringing the flag ordinance to the
Planning and Zoning Board (P&Z)
on May 2, and to Council for first
reading on May 15. Staff will try to
bring the sidewalk caf6 ordinance to
the Planning and Zoning Board on
June 6, and to Council for first read-
ing on June 19.
In repsonse to one restaurant ex-
pressing concern over the- timeline
for the sidewalk caf6 ordinance,
Council questioned the timeline as
well. City staff explained "there is
more to putting this together than
simply copying Gulfport's name into
another community's ordinance," ac-
cording to the planning department's
report to the City Manager.
Additionally, Angela Hurley, a
Planner for Gulfport, called Ele-


ments and explained the timeline
and what needed to happen to get
the ordinance passed.
"Staff has assembled several such
ordinances and everyone is some-
what different. While these exam-
ples can be drawn heavily upon, it
would be an injustice to not take the
time to tailor them to fit our commu-
nity," the report continued.
The list also gives a #1 priority to
the comprehensive plan update, a
state-mandated plan.
With these and the other projects
on the list, staff will work with the
City Attorney's office.

Gabber April 12 April 18, 2007



















The title of the new "City of
Gulfport Harbor Management
Plan," drawn up by city staff
and presented to the City Council
three weeks or so ago, can be a little
misleading to the uninitiated. Yes,
it talks about the Gulfport'Marina,
which already exists. And it talks
about a "designated anchorage,"
which also already exists, although
not necessarily in "designated" form.
But the main thrust of the plan,
the part that everyone is interested
in, the part that everyone is talking
about, the part that is creating all the
controversy, is the new proposal for
a "managed mooring field." Yes, the
same mooring field idea that we've
been kicking around for, what, three
years at least.
I've read the new plan, and I have
to say that I'm impressed. It's lengthy,
it's thorough, and it has enough tables
and charts and graphs to satisfy even
the detail lovers among us (what they
used to call "wonks" in Washington).
I also have to say that I accept this
harbor management plan at face
value, meaning I take it as an honest
effort by the city manager and his staff
to present the facts, the estimates
and the projections for a mooring
field as truthfully and thoroughly
as they can. Some of those who are
questioning the, facts or challenging
the assumptions seem to be implying
otherwise. Questions and challenges
are one thing, but insinuation is quite
another.
Okay, here are some of my
impressions, in no particular order,
after reading the report:
SUnder the heading of "statement of
need," the report lists underutilizationn
of the waterfront in contributing to
the economic development of the city"
as one of our challenges. I couldn't
agree more.
Our waterfront has been underutilized
for many years, maybe forever. And we
allow business people to invest their
time and labor and money, sometimes

management plan"

VIEWPOINT


millions, in our waterfront while we
sit back and watch them struggle. We
need to do more than run the trolley
on Friday and Saturday nights and
throw'an occasional street party.
We can't provide enough customers
to keep them all happy. It's their
job to attract customers, not ours to
provide them. But we can do this and
weshould. It's time.
This isn't sleepy little Gulfport
anymore. A town either moves forward
or it dies. Do we really want to go back
20 years to the empty storefronts and
the stagnation? A good friend came to
visit in 1990, shortly after we moved
here. When she saw our downtown,
she asked, "Is this all there is?" Yes,
it was, at the time.
Looking at the diagrams of the
mooring field, one is struck (or at
least I am) by how small it will be,
compared to the expanse of the bay.
Visions of the bay filled with boats at
anchor are just wrong.
The mooring field will be almost
entirely behind the Pier and the
Casino and partly overlapping the
swimming area. That's it. Most of the
water from the Pier to Clam Bayou
will be open; likewise the water from
mid-beach to the west. The boats
will be packed in pretty tightly in a
relatively small area.
The plan calls for dividing the 50
spaces in the mooring field (and maybe
50 more later) into three categories.
One-third will be for short-term
visitors (15 'days or less); one-third
for seasonal cruisers (who can stay up
to 3 months); one-third for long-term
storage of boats, with priority given to
Gulfport residents. That sounds about
right to me.
But I agree with Mayor Yakes. The
emphasis of the mooring field should
be on bringing visitors to Gulfport,
not boat storage. If it turns out that
we can fill up the visitor slots and
could use more, then storage should .
be minimized, or we should expand
the mooring field to the second tier,


or both.
To me, the proposed rates seem
about right, too. A Gulfport resident
who can't get a slip at the Marina can
store his or her boat in the mooring
field for about the same money it
costs to rent the smallest space at the
Marina. And a short-term visitor can
stay for 15 days for $150, about what
it would cost for one night at a hotel or
bed and breakfast.
No, these fees aren't cheap, but does
anyone believe that we should give the
mooring spots away? Even at these
rates, it's projected that it'll take 10
years to make our investment back.
The economic benefits model,,with its
projections of the money the mooring
field will bring into the community, is
more than my economics-challenged
brain can absorb. I can recall taking
only one economics class in school. It
was hardly'my favorite class or my
best work. But I don't question that
there will be benefits; there have to
be.
The harbor management plan
answered a long-standing question
for me. What about boaters who don't
want to use the mooring field? Can
they just come into our harbor and
anchor wherever they want, as they
always have? The answer is yes, but
only for up to 72 hours. Then they have
to leave or move to the mooring field.
That's the "designated anchorage"
part of the plan, and it's the reason
for obtaining a submerged lands lease
from the state for all the areas outside
the mooring field. So the harbor can't
return to the free-for-all mess we had
before.
The plan also told me something
I didn't know. It seems that our
harbormaster has been working with
other harbormasters throughout the
state to develop a set of standards
for a "clean mooring field." I assume
that they're similar to the marina
standards of the Florida Department
of Environmental Protection.
Once, they're finished, the
harbormasters plan to submit the
standards to FDEP and hope to have
them officially adopted. And of course,
we will apply the standards to our own
mooring field, just as we applied the
state marina standards to our marina
and won our designation as a "clean
marina."
Somehow, I find all of this activity to
be very reassuring.

We continue describing the wa-
tercolor exhibit by members of
The Art Guild of Treasure Island.
Hanging paintings until early May
are artists Eleanor Adamo, Mar-
garet Church and Sally Pierce,
introduced last week. It is time
to feature the works of Deborah
Fuller and Patricia Van Luevan.
Deborah Fuller brings her fresh
approach to life, people and art.
Debbie has chosen a cheerful "Hol-
lyhocks" and three landscapes: a
muted "Dune Grasses" swaying in
the wind, 'Monadnock from Nel-
son", a powerful mountain scene,
and "Moon Over the Water". The
latter pulls us into the swirl-
ing waters crashing over colorful
rocks, all bathed in the cold light
of the moon.
Patricia Van Leuvan offers vari-
ety in three watercolors, a bright
"Tropical Flowers after Mad-
den", "Point Venus Lighthouse"
and "Song of the Bird for Mirth".
In her acrylic "Bird Of Paradise"
Pat uses an intricately designed
mosaic of color and brushstrokes
to create graceful palm fronds and
branches as the setting for the
bird.

Il~~U FIN_>


Poetry for
When I was in college the first time
around, I decided to major in journal-
ism. It wasn't, as you might suspect,
because I had this burning desire to
be a hard-hitting reporter. I'm no
Carl Bernstein. But, I thought per-
haps a journalism degree would al-
low me to do what I love write and
actually make a living.
However, now that I'm back in
school I've decided to study what I al-
ways wanted to study: creative writ-
ing. And, while that might seem im-
practical, I think that people should
pursue what makes them happy in
this life.
Recently, though, I've found that
there is something I enjoy just as
equally as fiction poetry.
Now I know, I know. Poetry? Who
the heck is going to pay me for that?
Well, probably no one. I'm certainly
not going to quit my day job. But, I
have discovered this whole other as-
pect of myself, largely due to my new
favorite class, Intro to Poetry.
My professor is an adorable Italian
from Brooklyn who is gasp young-
er than me. But he's also a brilliant
poet, and has challenged us to write
things I never would have tried on
my own. This week we're trying our
hands at terza rima, the form Dante
invented and used throughout his'in-
sanely long Divine Comedy.
I'm sure many of you would rather
go to the symphony than sit through
a lesson on fourteenth century verse.'
I wouldn't do that to you, because the
truth is that poetry can be a whole lot
cooler than that. And you don't have
to write it to totally dig it.
There are actually lots of ways to
enjoy poetry, many of them involving
attractive people and adult beverag-
es, if you like that sort of thing. And,
as this is National Poetry Month (se-
riously) it only makes sense that I
highlight a couple of local events to
start you on your own personal po-
etry journey. Or, to just go have fun.
Whatever.
Recently I went to Poetry Resur-
rection!, a spoken word event at The


the People
Lobby, upstairs from the Garden
Restaurant. in the 200 block of Cen-
tral Avenue. My friend Alicia was
performing, and I initially went sim-
ply to watch her piece.
Soon, I became enamored with
these brave performers, trudging
up to the mic to bare their souls for
a bar crowd. Not all of the perform-
ers were veterans, and some of them
weren't that great but, the many who
were simply blew me away. They
mixed the personal with the political
and beyond for a room full of people
in every color, class and creed.
Who knew such passion and talent
was hiding in our bay area? If this
is what poetry reading is all about,
I know I'm hooked. Luckily, the
Lobby event is a regular Wednesday
night occurrence, and usually starts
around 10:30 pm. Get there early for
a good seat.
If the coffeehouse scene is more to
your liking though, you can check,
out The Globe in the 500 block of st'
Avenue North. Many of you may be
familiar with owner JoEllen Schiel-
ke, the long-time host of Friday af-
ternoon's WMNF radio show, Art in
Your Ear. Her little coffee shop is
probably one of the best kept secrets
in St. Petersbuig. There's a great
mix of folks at The Globe, along with
homemade eats and the funkiest de-
cor in town.
Now, I admit I haven't yet been able
to check out The Globe's occasional
poetry events, but there's one coming
up that I don't want to miss. On May
18th, at 6pm, The Globe is putting on
one of their Sunday School Confes-
sions in Poetry showcases, "S.O.S.
The May Day Session" wAich prom-
ises to be a darn good time, if nothing
else. What more do you want?
.Okay, maybe there are poetry pur-
ists amongst us. Well, fine. For you
there are several upcoming events
hosted at USF-St. Petersburg. April
18th, the Tampa Bay Writers Net-
work, a USF St. Pete organization de-
signed to bring more literary culture
into our lives, will host an Evening of


Poetry. The event will feature Lizz
Straight, a spoken word poet and fel-
low WMNF-er. Poets from around
the community are invited, and can
even share their work. You do need
to audition for them, but I'm pretty
sure that means just sending them
a tape. Oh, and if you need a little
more motivation, I believe there are
cash prizes involved.
The Tampa Bay Writers Network
has also been hosting a Wednesday
Writers Series to highlight local
writers in various genres. This week
they featured Martha Serpas and
Gianmarc Manzione, my aforemen-
tioned professor. I'll let you know
how it went, but you can also check
out their lineup for next month, or
get more info at www.stpt.usf.edu/
tbwn/
Well, enough of the shameless plug
for my beloved little school. But,
, you're lucky you have me to keep you-
updated on all this cool stuff, because
. yeah, poetry is cool.
However, for those of you who are
easily offended, poetry.events are not
necessarily for you. They are almost
always R-rated, can be radical, politi-
cal, and even sexual. But they are an
incredibly rewarding and uniquely
casual way to engage in other peo-
ple's perspectives.
Verse is considered the oldest lit-
erary art form. It has documented,
painted, and projected every'inch of
the human experience and still finds
ways to evolve. You might never look
at the world the same way again af-
ter seeing it through the words of a
poet.
Don't be afraid to get out there. All
it takes is an open ear and an open
mind.

Adopt a
Manatee for Mom
This Mother's Day, increase the size
of your family by one ton! Adopt a
manatee for mom this Mother's Day.
Even though you can't actually bring
the manatee home, Save the Mana-
tee Club (SMC) will send your mom a
photo and biography of the new fam-
ily member. An adoption certificate,
membership handbook and newsletter
subscription are also included. And,
during the month of May, each new
member who joins the Adopt-A-Mana-
tee program at $35 or more will receive
a free commemorative plate featuring
a design of "Manatees" by renowned
marine artist Wyland (while supplies
last). Although the average manatee
is not quite a ton (usually 800 to 1,200
pounds), they are probably the big-
gest and best present you can give
to mom. In addition, funds from each
Adopt-A-Manatee membership go to-
ward efforts to protect endangered
manatees and their habitat.
Save the Manatee Club is a nation-
al, nonprofit organization started in
1981 by U.S. Senator Bob Graham
and singer/songwriter Jimmy Buffet.
The Club's mission is to protect en-
dangered manatees and their habitat.

Drowsy Driving Danger
The American Association of Safety
Councils and the Suncoast Safety
Council are issuing a warning about
the dangers of driving while drowsy.
A U.S. Dept. of Transportation poll
says that 37% of the driving popula-
tion says they have nodded off for at
least a moment or fallen asleep while
driving at some time in their life. Ac-


cording to the National Sleep Foun-
dation, driving while drowsy may be
just as deadly as driving drunk.
If you are about to fall asleep you
will experience some or all of the fol-
lowing: You yawn a lot or need to rub
your eyes. You have trouble keeping
your eyes open and focused. You nod
and can't keep your head up. You
daydream or have wandering, dis-
connected thoughts. You find. your-
self tailgating or driving at irregular
speeds. You miss road signs, drive
past your turn or can't focus on your
route. You feel irritable, restless or
impatient. You drift off the road and
hit the rumble strips or cross into an-
other lane.
Pay attention to these symptoms
and make sure you pull off the road.

DBSA Support Group
Are you depressed or bipolar or have
another disorder? Come to our sup-
port group. They do help. Please join
us to learn coping skills. We meet ev-
ery Thursday evening from 7-9 p.m.
at Northeast Presbyterian Church,
4400 Shore Acre Blvd. NE. Call Mary
at 520-1856 for more information.









Weed control.
Mulching your beds will reduce the amount of time spent
weeding and watering. Choosing the best method of weed
control is not always easy because there are many conditions
and situations in which one method doesn't work for the
whole garden.


MULCH
Mulch the garden each year at
the beginning of the growing
season. This protective layer of
mulch insulates the.soil from
the hot summer sun, protects
it from drying winds and
prevents wded growth.

NEWSPAPER
Use newspapers as mulch and
weed barriers in the garden to
lower the soil temperature
slightly.
Recycling old newspapers into
a mulch material, rather than
dumping it in landfills, is an
environmentally friendly
practice.


LIVING MULCH
Low-growing plants such as
alfalfa or clover are planted
where weeds are unwanted.
They protect topsoil from wind
and water erosion and help
increase organic matter such
as earthworms and beneficial
microorganisms.
They also help increase the .
soil's available nitrogen and
moisture retention.
LANDSCAPE FABRIC
Landscape fabrics are used as
weed barriers and erosion
control much like mulch. They
are usually composed of a
synthetic material such as
polypropylene, generally are
biodegradable and will
disintegrate eventually.

Hurricane Preparedness
Before a hurricane strikes, plan a
safe evacuation route and identify
safe shelter space within your area.
Those in storm surge zones, flood
zones or in less than standard hous-
ing should be especially vigilant in
preparing disaster plans.
Have disaster supplies on hand in-
cluding flashlight, portable battery-
operated radio and extra batteries,
First-aid kit, emergency food and
water (including a non-electric can
opener), essential medicines, cash
and credit cards, sturdy shoes and a
change of clothing, copies of impor-
tant papers (bank statements, insur-
ance records, deeds, etc.). Review the
family disaster plan. Protect your
hoine (roof, windows, doors, etc.) and'
trim dead branches from trees.
When a hurricane watch or warn-
ing is issued, listen to hurricane
progress reports. Follow instructions
if ordered to evacuate. Check your
emergency supplies. Bring in outdoor
objects such as lawn furniture, toys
and garden tools. Secure your home
by installing hurricane shutters or
precut plywood: Turn the refrigera-
tor and freezer to the coldest settings
if not instructed by officials to turn
off utilities. Fuel your car. Review
evacuation routes and gather your
disaster supply kit. Store valuables
and personal papers in a waterproof
container.
If evacuation is necessary, leave as
soon as possible. Avoid flooded roads
and watch for washed-out bridges.
Secure your home. Unplug appli-
ances and turn off electricity and the
main water valve. If time permits,
elevate furniture to protect it from
flooding. Take your pre-assembled
emergency supplies and waim, pro-
tective clothing.
For more information on emergency
preparedness, visit www.fema.gov or

Your Pets Need a
Disaster Plan, Too
Our pets enrich our lives in so many
ways. In turn, they rely on us for their
safety and well-being. Here is how
you can be prepared to protect your
pets when disaster strikes.
Be prepared with a disaster plan. If
your home is not safe for you, it is not
safe for your pet. If you evacuate, take
your pet with you. Leaving your pet
behind, even if you try to create a safe
place for them, is likely to result in
their being injured, lost or worse.
Have a safe place to take your
pet. Evacuation shelters do not ac-
cept pets. Do not wait until disaster
strikes to research alternatives. Con-
tact hotels/motels, friends, relatives
or boarding facilities outside your im-
mediate area. Please remember that
the SPCA of Pinellas County, Animal
Services nor The Human Society are
available for boarding in the event of
a storm.
Put together a pet disaster supplies
kit. Your kit should include two weeks

of medications, medical records and a
first aid kit. Leashes, harnesses and/
or carriers to ensure that jour ani-
mals can't escape. Current photos of
your pet in case they get lost. Food,
potable water, bowls, cat litter/pan
and a can opener. Information on
feeding schedules, medical conditions,
behavior problems and the name and
number of your vet in case you have to
board your pets. Pet beds and toys, if
easily transportable. Make sure your
pet has collar and identification tags.
Know what to do if a disaster ap-
proaches. Often, warnings are issued
hours, even days, in advance. At the
first hint of a disaster, act to protect
your family and pet.

Laugh With a Child
Become a Mentor
Every child needs someone to trust.
Gulf Coast Community Care needs
volunteers age 30 and older for its
mentoring program. Volunteers are
matched with children of all ages
throughout Pinellas County who

need a positive adult role model.
Many of the children are in foster
care or live with a single parent who
is going to school and working. Vol-
unteers receive formal orientation
and training, and spend a few hours
a week with a child in activities such
as reading, baking, fishing, crafts
sports or visiting a park. No expe-
rience is necessary. There are no
costs. Case managers follow match-
es to assure a positive experience
for the children and the volunteers.
Gulf Coast offers you a chance to be-
come a mentor and make a real dif-
ference in the life of a child! Adults
Mentoring Children also sponsors
group activities for matches, in-
cluding an annual picnic, a bowling
party, a holiday party and other fun
group opportunities. For informa-
tion, call Beverly at (727) 479-1841
or Bonnie at (727) 479-1825.

Become an
Organ Donor
Do you know what it takes to be-
come an organ donor? The steps are
simple. Obtain the facts about dona-
tion, make a decision and tell your
family members that decision. You
could also choose to designate organ
donor on a driver license or carry a
donor card. Today nearly 88,000 peo-
ple wait for an organ that will save
their lives and hundreds of thou-
sands more could benefit from tissue
or cornea donation. Call LifeLink at
1-800-262-5775 to learn more.


Safe Boating Program
Plan to attend the Boating Skills
and Seamanship program offered

Flotilla 7-16 Gulfport located east of
the Gulfport Municipal Marina. The
program begins at 7 p.m. until 9:30

participant. A certificate of comple-
tion will be issued to those partici-
pants successfully completing the
program. Please call (727) 321-4455
