Mooring Field
Makes First Hurdle
By Cathy Salustri
Applause greeted Gulfport City Council
last Thursday after they voted to start
work on a mooring field in Boca Ciega
Bay. Before voting, Council heard ex-
tensive comments from the audiences,
including a wide array of reasons not to
build a mooring field
Many speaking against the mooring
field cited proposed tax cuts in Talla-
hassee as one reason to postpone the
vote. Fran McLaughlin, owner of FMI
Industries in Gulfport, told Council he
couldn't endorse a mooring field based
on the cost.

A Tale of Two Cities: The Best Intentions

Part one of a three part series
By Cathy Salustri
Last month The Gabber ran two articles
about midtown St. Petersburg and the 49th
Street area of Gulfport. In those articles,
Gulfport Chief of Police Curt Willocks ad-
dressed some concerns of business owners
and residents along 49th Street. St. Peters-
burg Chief of Police Chuck Harmon explained
how he believed the changes to St. Petersburg
community policing would benefit not only St.
Petersburg residents but businesses and resi-
dents in neighboring Gulfport.

The Gabber also spoke to residents in both
cities as well as several Gulfport elected offi-
cials. St. Petersburg Mayor Rick Baker would
not consent to an interview: St. Pete Deputy
Mayor Gohath Davis (responsible for oversee-
ing midtown St. Petersburg) did not return
our calls.
Both police departments have expressed to
The Gabber a strong wish to work together
and improve the situation along 49th Street.
Additionally. Chief Harmon spoke at length
with this paper about problems unique to mid-
town and how residents can help fix them.

Retirement, Promotions
at Police Department
Lieutenant Ken Dodge worked his
last shift on April 16th, after serving
four years as the commander of the
patrol division. Having retired from
the Tampa Police Department after a
34-year career, Dodge came to work in
Gulfport to fill a vacant lieutenant's
position. The agency looked outside
its own ranks because, at the time,
none of the members of the Gulfport
Police Department met both the edu-
cation and service requirements for
promotion to the rank of lieutenant.
Times have changed. With Dodge's
retirement, Howard Coombs has
been promoted to lieutenant, and he
will serve as the patrol division com-
mander. Coombs has been with the
agency for nine years, serving most
recently as the supervisor of the pol-
icy compliance unit, which oversees
accreditation, recruiting, training,
and internal investigations. To meet
the education requirement, Coombs
attended the University of Phoenix

A Plea for Help

"r .

Collyn Lockamy giving $271.64 to Fr. Jim Merkel of Most Holy Name of Jesus Catholic
Holy Name Catholic Church, built in 1964 needs your help! They have a
$475,000 deficit to overcome or our greatest fears could come to life closure!
"I'm not afraid to say the word" says longtime parishioner Collyn Lockamy. "I
already went through (along with my children) the closing of Holy Name School.
I will not stand by idol and watch this happen. Please get your friends, neigh-
bors, relatives, employees, bosses, anyone you can this of, to help and do it now!"
Strategia Marketing LLC recently allowed Collyn Lockamy, a director of sales,
to fundraise at their company picnic through a Stryker game and 50/50 raffle.
$271.64 was raised thanks to Bryon Wolf, the owner, allowing this to happen.
Ask your company, ministry, local restaurants, area shops to help raise funds.
Donations can be sent to: Holy Name Catholic Church, Attn: Deficit Fund, 5800

The Sonnet Endures ; i
By Shelly Wilson I

William Shakespeare wrote over. 150
sonnets, but the average person may
only know one or two. We've all heard
the oft-quoted: "Shall I compare thee to
a summer's day? / Thou art more lovely
and more temperate," a line from one of
the bard's most popular love sonnets,
number 18. But, what about "My mis-
tress' eyes are nothing like the sun...If
hairs be wires, black wires grow on her
head"? No, Shakespeare's sonnets aren't
all flowery verse. They are sometimes
amusing and often witty compositions
that have endured four hundred years.
Last Sunday evening, local stage ac-
tor and director John Conlon brought
Shakespeare's sonnets to the public with
his second annual "Sonnet-a-thon" at the
St. Petersburg Little Theater.
"This is a good thing for people to get to-
gether for," Conlon explained, "because,
how many are there who get together
and think about Shakespeare?"
A modest, but devoted following,
turned out for the reading, including
many in "Shakespearean" dress. While
most of the some ten performers did read
from the bard's repertoire of sonnets, a
few presented monologues or segments SPLT Treasurer Michael,Kinney got into the
from Shakespeare's plays. The results: act last Sunday, charming the crowd with
enthusiastic applause and unadulterated his "Richard Nixon-as-bard" sonnet read-
merriment. ing.
"I started this last year at Studio 620 [in
downtown St. Petersburg]," said Conlon. "I brought it here because I thought it
would be more beneficial for people to come, and also to benefit the theater."
St. Petersburg Little Theater is Florida's oldest, continuously operating com-
munity theater, presenting up to six major shows a season many of which
are far more contemporary than Shakespeare. But, it is doubtful even Shake-
speare could have predicted how his works would endure, as he himself wrote
in sonnet 17: "Who will believe my verse in time to come...?" Indeed, there are

Expressions of Artistic Minds

The Gulfport Optimist Club would like to thank everyone who bought tickets
to the "Expressions of Artistic Minds" held at the Casino on Monday, April
9th. Everyone had a great time listening to live guitar music while viewing
the many pieces of art on display. The artwork displayed by the Gulfport Mon-
tessori students was extremely impressive. Thank you to all the artists who
showed their art. This fundraiser for art materials for the school and the Gulf-
port Teen Council travel fund could not have happened without all the hard
work put in by Ms. Kristi Dean and the participating teachers at the school.
Thank you to the American Legion Post 125 Women's Auxiliary and the Sons
of the Legion, Gulfport Chamber of Commerce, K.T. Kanes and Al and Cindy
Davis for their sponsorship. Thank you to K.T. Kanes for cooking all the deli-
cious food for the dinner on their day off. The Gulfport Teen Council did a great
job of serving the dinner. And that you to the City of Gulfport for all your help
This event was so awe-inspiring that we look forward to making it an annual

Your Last Will and
Many otherwise successful and dili-
gent people.overlook what could be
one of the largest tax-saving devices
available to them during their entire
lifetimes: a will. Wills are the primary
document in which you specify how, to
whom and when you wish to have all
of your earthly belongings distribut-
ed. Although this is a vital document,
many people procrastinate or defer
having one drafted. Consequently,
many people die without the benefit

of their specific instructions being car-
ried out.
If you die without a will, you die "in-
testate" or without a testament. If this
occurs, your estate will be distributed
according to the probate laws of the
State of Florida if you reside in Flori-
da. More than likely, this distribution
"will not be according to your wishes.
This could also cause problems in your
immediate family due to disputes over
who was meant to receive what, what
proceeds to go to your spouse as well
as any charitable bequests. In draft-
ing a will, several factors must be tak-
en into consideration. These include,
but are not limited to:
*Specific instructions designed to
distribute your estate to your intend-
ed beneficiaries.
*Provisions for a guardian(s) for your
capacity if you have minor children.

Credit as well as other tax savings
A competent attorney should be em-
ployed for the drafting of a will. While
there exist many do-it-yourself prod-
ucts on the market which do provide
presumably valid documents, there is
no substitute for professional advice
and sound legal counsel.
Once your will is finalized, it may
be changed as you deem necessary to
reflect your ever changing situation.
Such changes may be based upon a
birth or death in the family, a divorce,
change of residence or change of in-
tended beneficiaries. Such changes
or codicils must be executed with the
same formalities as a will, but are usu-
ally not as involved as the drafting of
the original document. Even without
a major life changes, wills should be
reviewed every two to three years to
ensure that your intentions will, in
fact, be carried out upon your death.

Mooring Field
Dear Editor: Due to a prior busi-
ness commitment, I was unable to
attend the meeting last Thursday. I
did, however, make contact with my
council 'representative prior to the
meeting. I would like to make a few
observations on this issue.
Thursday's vote was to spend $25,000
of marian funds to start the permit-
ting process; a processthat is'estimat-
ed to run about $58,000. This money
is reportedly already in the marina
fund which initially sounds like a good
thing. Yet the marina fund still owes
the general fund about $220,000 from
renovations done a few years ago.
I feel that with budgetary issues so
unsure right now, pending legisla-
tive decisions in Tallahassee, the City
should proceed with extreme caution
in spehdiig ,$58,000 to start the per-
mitting process on a high cost project
that may or may not be able to come
to fruition. Especially in a time where
other municipalities are actuallf~cal-'
ing back, pending a better view of the
financial picture.

money to make money but th

"There's something in there. What is it?" Josh Bryan asked Mandy Tyler, a fish-
eries biologist manning the touch tank at Saturday's Marine Quest.
Josh Bryan and Tyler Grooms studied the seaweed intently and finally deter-
mined they saw a tiny crab in the seaweed. According to Tyler, most of the sea
creatures in the tank came from Fort DeSoto, save a lobster a research vessel
found offshore.
Saturday's Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission's (FWC) Marine Quest
included touch tanks with sting rays and other local aqualife.

The Healing Field

Each a Young Life Lost- The Healing Field is a national project which commemorates lives
lost to certain events. It began with a tribute to those lives lost during the September 11
attacks, but has recently been touring the nation with a Healing Field of 1400 flags com-
memorating the 1400 children known to have died at the hands of an abuser in the United
States. Many visitors to last weekend's Mainsail Arts Festival in downtown St. Petersburg
saw this emotional display in North Straub Park presented by the Northeast Exchange Club
of St. Petersburg.

Gulfport Chamber of Commerce

H April Mixer

By Morgan Landis

The Longhouse, which means 'gathering place' in the Native American
language, was the gathering place for this month's Chamber meeting held
on April 19th. One of the co-owners, Andrea Royce, said The Longhouse is
available as a meeting place, but is known for their massage, acupuncture
and other health benefits. The business has just gained a new service in laser
healing, helping people to stop smoking or lose weight. Anyone can check out
the facilities the first Saturday of each month between 11am and 4pm. ,
Bark and Browse, an all natural retail store for dogs (and cats), sponsored
the event. They had mini treats for pet owners and brochures to help with
any questions.
Chamber President Lori Russo conducted the meeting and spoke about
the upcoming Springest. There are over 100 booths, not including the Art
Village groups, so there should be plenty to see and do! She also announced
Elements Global Cuisine as business of the month. Ever since their open-
ing, the restaurant has been active in the community by donating to local
benefits and getting involved in organizations.
The Chamber has a new business resource page on their website (www.
gulfportchamberofcommerce.com). There are local, state and federal contacts
available to Gulfport businesses to learn more about how to market their ser-
vices. Last, but not least, they wanted everyone to show their support at the
Dining Out for Life event being held on Thursday April 29th. "It is the larg-
est national fundraiser for AIDS awareness of those living with the disease,"
Chamber Member Greg Stemm added, "'and Gulfport has nine restaurants to
support the cause."
In other news, Commodore Bob Feckner said the Boca Ciega Yacht
Club is hosting the South Regional Qualifier for the US Sailing Multi-hauls,
and the 2008 National Championship for the event. Extraordinary Being-
ness was holding their Arts & Music Festival with over 15 musicians and
artists last Saturday as a show of gratitude to for all the support they've
received since opening here in the last year.
Next month's meeting will focus a little more on July 4th parade and a pos-
sible co-sponsor for the Tour of Homes on November 3rd.

This N' That in
South Pasadena
By Sibylle Stajich
An evening of appreciation was
shared by about guests at City Hall on
Wednesday, April 18. It was great to
see so many familiar faces, especially
Joan Runyon, a former commissioner
who now lives in The Villages near the
Orlando area who always attends this
big meeting every year. Mayor Hol-
mes welcomed all and asked Patricia
Nevins to give a prayer after which
Banquet Masters had the meal ready
on long tables. Everyone was invited
to go up and get their helpings and
meanwhile bottles of Zinfandel wine
were placed on the tables.
A separate table of delicious cakes
was set up and with coffee it made for
great desserts. The mayor then named
and introduced all the different com-
mittees and their members that were
present such as the city commission,
beautification, charter review, cultur-
al arts council, planning, zoning, ad-
visory, exercise, finance, fire and pen-
sion as well as former commissioners
and volunteers of the year. He stated
'We have a great city with great men
and women". Handsome plaques were
presented to Eleanor & Tom Bill as
Volunteers of this year as well as
Vanessa Parnell, Leverock's, for Busi-
ness Person of the year.
A Reminder

important dates- Arbor Day, April

Palms of Pasadena Hospital
An interesting evening was spent
at the "Dine with a Doc" evening at
Palms of Pasadena Hospital on April
19th. About 60 people attended and af-
ter a buffet and eating their meal, Dr
David Rubins, Orthopedic Surgeon,
appeared after having spent five
hours replacing a hip on a patient. He
talked at length about hip and knee
replacement and asked one gentle-
man, who had two knee replacements
seven weeks before, to walk around
and show his proficiency in walking.
Dr. Rubins likes to do minimal in-
vasive replacements because of faster
recuperation. A stand up x-ray shows
him what is usually best to use for the
patient. Quite a question and answer
period followed and people were inter-
ested in all the answers to learn about
a faster road to recovery. It was a very
successful and enlightening evening
for all.

But the road to that success was bumpy indeed. The Indianapolis Motor
Speedway Corp. wasaformed Feb. 9, 1909, when partners Carl Graham
Fisher, Jim Allison, Frank Wheeler and Arthur Newby purchased 328
acres of farmland northwest of downtown Indianapolis. A half-mile
rectangular automobile racetrack was built and 12,000 spectators
witnessed the first race, a five-mile dash, held on Aug. 19, 1909. It was
a disaster. The track surface broke up, causing the deaths of two drivers,
two mechanics and two spectators.

No, not that old, familiar sub-
ject not the mooring field.
I was out of town last week
and haven't had the chance, yet, to
review the recording of last week's
special meeting about whether or
not to go ahead with the mooring
field project.
I'm talking about that other familiar
topic: Clam Bayou. It always seems
to be in the news, these days, one
way or another. I'm writing about it
today because there have been two
recent developments.
Last week, our City Council passed
a resolution "establishing the city's
preferred course of action for restor-
ing upper Clam Bayou," and, the
week before, the Habitat Restoration
Subcommittee of the Agency on Bay
Management held a meeting to dis-
cuss, in part, the condition of upper
Clam Bayou.
It wasn't a very encouraging meet-
To be fair, it was about more than
Clam Bayou; there were other sub-
jects on the agenda. But the discus-
sion of Clam Bayou took up most of
the 3-hour meeting.
There were the usual reports on all
that has been accomplished in the
bayou so far, including the work that
was done on Clam Bayou Nature
Park back in the 90s. And there was
a report on Phase 3 of the program,
which involves installation of some
filtering devices over on the St. Pe-
tersburg side of the bayou, the source
of most of the current pollution. As I
understood it, the work on Phase 3
will begin next year and should be
completed some time in 2009.
There was no mention of the large
skimming pond that is planned over
in St. Petersburg and no mention of
habitat restoration.
When questioned about the long-
discussed skimming pond, offi-
cials admitted that St. Petersburg
still has not acquired the land re-

)ne more time

on an old,

imiliar subject

Roger Turner

quired for it, but may do so some
time this year emphasis on "may."
If they do acquire the land, then
planning for the pond will begin next
year, with the lengthy approval and
permitting process to follow, and
then construction. The process could
take years. I assume they'll call it
Phase 4, if and when it happens.
When questioned about habitat
restoration, there was reluctance
to even acknowledge that there is a
habitat problem, despite testimony
to the contrary by many Gulfport
residents in attendance. And there
were many residents there, ranging
from Mayor Yakes and Councilman
Worthington (who is a member of the
committee, now) to a whole bunch of
Gulfport Water Watch members.
Which leads me to the one thing I
don't understand about all this.
Everyone, and I mean everyone,
agrees that the outflow of trash and
debris from St. Petersburg into Clam
Bayou is intolerable. That's why all
these projects to clean up that out-
flow, at considerable expense, are
And I think that everyone acknowl-
.edges that this outflow of trash
into the bayou has been going on,
unchecked, for years decades. It
would be impossible to disagree.
So if everyone agrees to these two
facts, then why do the powers that
be seem to think that all we have
to do is stop this flow of trash, at
some point in the future not yet ex-
actly specified, and everything will
be okay? That Clam Bayou Estuary
will somehow become okay again?
That it will somehow become "natu-
ral" again. Pristine, even. That stop-
ping the flow of trash is, in and of
itself, "habitat restoration."
What about all the years of buildup
of ti ash and debris in the mangroves
and on the bayou floor? What about
all the impediments to natural wa-

ter flow that have built up in the
bayou after all these years of abuse?
What about all the creatures of the
air and water that have abandoned
the bayou?
I've always thought that habitat
restoration was part and parcel of
the Swiftmud plan for Clam Bayou.
And the words "habitat restoration"
even appear in the name of the sub-
committee that hosted the meeting
two weeks ago. Yet they both seem
to have abandoned any thought of
restoration and appear content with
a plan to simply stop the outflow of
Not us.
Which leads to the other part of this
column: the resolution passed by the
City Council last week.
It formalizes the city's stance on
Clam Bayou, saying that the trash
flow into the bayou must be stopped,
sooner rather than later. And it goes
further, stating that the cleanup pro-
gram must not stop with the cleanup
of St. Petersburg's effluent, that a fol-
low-on program must be established
to reverse the stagnation that has
been occurring in the bayou. And it
authorizes the National Oceanic and
Atmospheric Administration to rep-
resent Gulfport's interests in these
matters. *
This last item, the NOAA autho-
rization, came about through Mayor
Yakes' contact with Sen. Bill Nelson's
office in Washington. We're hoping
that the agency can light a fire un-
der Swiftmud and St. Petersburg
to expedite the cleanup of the trash
outflow. And then we're hoping that
they can lead an effort to clean up
some of the sediment and buildup in
the bayou and turn it back into the
working estuary it once was, with
better water flow and maybe even
a working channel through the sys-
That's the hope, anyway.
The good news is; we're not just
lying back and taking it anymore.
We're fighting back. We're asking
that attention be paid to Clam Bayou
and, in some cases, we're getting it.
And we're going further up the lad-
der of authority when we need to.
It's about time.

Landlubbers Take Note

Ah, Florida. It's no secret why I live
here. I had no choice. My parents
forced me to move here from my
beloved California when I was only
Twenty-two years later, though, I
have forgiven them. I now consider
Florida if not my native home
- my chosen home. I actually love
everything about it, with the exception
of one tiny detail: the paralyzing and
insufferable sauna that is summer.
But hey, who's thinking about
that this time of year? I'm thinking
about street fairs and festivals, about
backyard barbeques on my new,
water-sucking sod and, well, just
about anything that gets me outdoors.
It is, as Mayor Baker says, another
great day in St. Petersburg.
\ Know what else is great about
St. Petersburg and, oh, I guess most
everywhere in Florida? The coast, the
water, the beach!
Everyone who knows me is now
laughing hysterically. I am absolutely
famous infamous really for my
intense dislike of the beach. This is

largely due to my skin's propensity to
fry like a conch fritter in the sun and
my absurdly irrational fear of marine
life in general sharks in. particular.
I know, I know. I just need to put
on some sunscreen and suck it up.
There's 1200 miles of coastline to
explore, some of it not even obscured
by mangroves! Well, that's fine, but I
have better idea.
My buddy Dan a guy so strapping
and handy, he makes all of his friends
feel like amoebas has a boat. And,
it's not just any boat it's a 28 foot
sailboat with all kinds of thingies and
doodads and other impressive nautical
business on board. He keeps it at the
St. Petersburg Municipal Marina
downtown, where I recently had a
chance to come aboard. At night.
Despite the fact that my head was
reeling with visions of Jaws IV, The
Revenge (you know, that scene in the
beginning? In a marina? At night?...
of course you don't, because I'm the
only person who would ever see that
movie), I was actually delighted to
accept Dan's invitation.

The Marina is a pretty happening'
place. There is a secure boat
house with showers, laundry and a
communal space complete with a TV
and dart board. Fresco's, the marina-
side restaurant, even provides the
distant wail of karaoke tunes for the
lonely live-aboards.
Apparently, and according to Dan,
who knows everything, there is a two-
year waiting list to get a slip. Most.
folks circumvent that by simply buying
a boat already in one of those sweet
spots. That's what his "neighbor"
Matthew did with his new boat "Free
Willy" (I'm sure Matthew would like
me to note, for the record, that he did
not come up with that designation).
It's a lot less hassle to have a friend
with a boat, though, than to go get one
of your own. If you don't have a boat-
buddy, they're not hard to find. The
live-aboards are friendly folk, and
they're always ready to tell you about
some impressive nautical doodad
they've hooked up. Just hang around
down by the, marina and one is sure
to ask you to check out it out. There
is nothing like sitting on a boat, on a
cool night, kicking back a couple of
beers and pretending to understand
Mariner-speak, I now know, is
similar to car-fixing-speak and lawn-
gadgetry-speak. It's a kind of boat
lingo that only official "mariners" use
involving bizarre and, clearly, made-
up words like "bilge" and "keel." Its
sole purpose, I'm convinced, is to instill
awe and humility in "landlubbers"
like myself.
SI daresay that trick would have
worked on me the other night, had
I not been listening intently for the
slightest rumbling of tubas and large
fins in the water.
For the future, though, I am looking
to. shed' these silly fears of skin
blisters and feeding frenzies. As part
of my recovery, Dan has promised to
take me "out" in the boat. Apparently
these things are designed for actual
"sailing." He says that if the wind is
right, we might even get to "bury the
rail." Whatever that means.

"We know it's going to cost over a
million dollars," McLaughlin said.
"It seems little harm would be done
to...postpone the vote until after we
know how the legislature is going to
vote," Councilwoman Michele King
said after listening to opinion from
both sides.
'The initial amount of money we're
going to spend is already there,"
Councilwoman Mary Stull said. The
Gulfport Marina operates as a fund
enterprise, meaning that while it may
contribute money to the City's general
fund it may only take money back as
a loan. The marina fund, according to
Jim O'Reilly, Leisure Services Direc-
tor for the city, has enough money in
it for the initial stages of the process.
"I think it's a good idea, but the
wrong time," Mike McKee, Art Vil-
lage Courtyard manager said. McKee
wanted Council to wait and see what
would happen with State budget cuts
before proceeding.
'We're not taking away from any
other entity in the city," Councilman
Worthington assured the audience.
During several public sessions about
the mooring field, some residents
pointed to the marina's debt to the
City as one reason the city shouldn't
embark on a mooring field.
Councilman Ted Philips attempted
to explain the marina's debt service to
the city.
"Money that is still owed by the ma-
rina is their own money- in years past
money that belonged to the marina
was transferred to the general fund,"
Philips said, adding that needing to
borrow money didn't make the moor-
ing field a fiscally unsound decision.
"How many people here had all the
money to buy their house with no
mortgage? But you want the city to
do that?" Philips said he understood
the fears of those concerned with the
"conjecture" surrounding the mooring
"How was the art village built if not
on conjecture? Nobody knew it was
going to work but we said we were
gonna try," Philips remembered, add-
ing that he knew the city might make
mistakes. But, he smiled at the group
gathered, "I believe in investing in the
future. If it doesn't work, you find a
way of backing out.
Many businesses spoke in favor of
the mooring field.
Gabber April 26 -'May 2, 2007

"We definitely have to open the wa-
ter; it's a dead end road- nobody would
put their business on a dead-end road.
There's a lot of hoopla about the arts
community- the arts community is
dead. I can't even imagine what it
would do if we opened up the water.
This could be Greenwich .Village on
the water," Simone Frone, owner of
La Cote Basque, told Council.
Helga Kane (HT Kane's) and Mary
O'Malley (Reef Dog) also urged'Coun-
cil to vote yes.
Other residents complained a moor-
ing field would obstruct their view.
"That land didn't exist before 1957-
That land wouldn't even be there
without a dredge," Councilman Bob
Worthington responded. "You're com-
plaining about somebody parking a
sailboat in front of your house that
shouldn't even be there!"
Council did not address environmen-
tal concerns such as pump outs and
pollution. The Comprehensive Harbor
Management Plan (CHMP) addressed
those issues.
After ninety minutes, public com-
ment waned and Council voted 3-2
to begin the process. King and Mayor
Mike Yakes cast the dissenting votes.
Yakes asked Council to amend the
CHMP before approving so that it
could only proceed with voter approv-
al. Council opted to vote on the CHMP
as it stood.
"I believe- putting it to the voters- we
can do that at any time," Worthington
paid. "If we're going to put that before
. the vo ers, we've got to go through
with the permitting and see if we can
do this."
"If you're going to bring it before the
voters you've got to see if you can do
This or not," King agreed.
S"This is the closest issue of the com-
munity I've witnessed in my tenure,"
Yakes said, adding later that had he
had the "swing vote" for or against the
mooring field. he would have voted for
the mooring field.

'Those people (who spoke against
the mooring field) need to have confi-
dence that they're heard," Yakes said
Monday afternoon. Yakes also voiced
concerns about the mooring field be-
coming a parking lot for boats.
Courtland Yarborough, a Mariner's
Cove Marina worker and also the only
losing politician from last month's
election in attendance at Thursday
night's meeting, told Council that,
while he disagreed with building a
mooring field, he felt Council had ex-
ercised "due diligence".
O'Reilly agreed with Yarborough.
"I've had a lot of conversations with
the Mayor; he understood it. He's
right in a way- you'd rather have it
alive with people than a parking lot,"
O'Reilly said.
Stull's due diligence extended as far
as a trip to the east coast of Florida.
Initially not an advocate of a moor-
ing field, Stull visited the Vero Beach
mooring field earlier this month at the
urging of Al and Cindy Davis, found-
ers of Gulfport Water Watch. She cit-
ed that visit as part of the reason for
her change of heart.
Additionally, Stull said, she wants to
see one community working together.
"I would like to see us move forward
where we're generally interested in
everything that affects the commu-
nity, not just our own special interest
areas," Stull said before the vote.
Stull represents Ward Four, which
falls between 49th Street and 58th-
ish Street from Gulfport Boulevard
north to the city limits. Regardless of
her landlocked ward, Stull says water
remains an essential element no mat-
ter where people live in the city.
"Seeing boats on the water is part of
the landscape," Stull said.

St Pdtersburg's Plan for Westminster Heights

By Cathy Salustri
St. Petersburg Planning Staff met with the Westminster Heights
Neighborhood Association to start creating a neighborhood plan.
"Help us determine some guidelines, some recommendations to help
enhance the neighborhoods," Susie Ajoc asked the group of Westmin-
ster residents.
To start building a plan, Ajoc asked residents what they liked as
well as what they disliked about their neighborhood. Residents said I
they liked the serenity of the neighborhood as well as their neigh-
bors and the location of the neighborhood. They disliked kids loiter-
ing in the street (to the extent that they block traffic, one resident
said), unleashed dogs running free, and absentee landlords (this last
comment drew an enthusiastic wave of agreement from others in the
audience). I
Ajoc, who works for the City planning department, estimated that the f
City could bring a neighborhood plan to fruition as quickly as October
if that's what residents want.
"If you need us to slow down, that's fine. If you want this done by the .
beginning of the year, that's fine also. We try to move at your pace,"
Ajoc told the group. She also made some requests of them.
"You need to comfnYto meetings; you need to have a dialogue. (We've) .- .1
laid out a process, but as far as a neighborhood plan, we have noth- -
ing," she told the small crowd, adding "Don't get concerned about the ...
numbers here," assuring them that once they started talking about _.
the plan, their neighbors would start to attend meetings.
Westminster Heights runs from Central Avenue south to the Pinel-
las Trail and fr6m 49th Street South west to 58th Street South. For Wengay Newton Senior ("Newt"), president of the Westmin-

North Kenwood's New Destination

City of St. Petersburg Mayor Rick Baker (center) stands amidst North Kenwood Neighborhood Association members and other city officials for
the official ribbon cutting at Booker Creek Park last Saturday. During the ceremony, Baker started the salutation that has become his trademark:
"It is another great day in St. Petersburg."

By Shelly Wilson

Since its founding 13 years ago, the
North Kenwood Neighborhood As-
sociation had high hopes for Booker
Creek Park. The large reservoir
located behind Edward White Hos-
pital on 9th Avenue North in St. Pe-
tersburg was long considered a park
by the city, but offered little to at-
tract visitors.
Last Saturday marked an official
end to the park's second-class sta-
"Booker Creek Park has always
*been something of a 'diamond-in-
the-rough,"' said St. Petersburg's
District 8 Councilmember Jeff Dan-
ner at the park's official ribbon cut-
ting ceremony on April 21st. The
neighborhood association had been
very persistent, Danner joked, mak-
ing "weekly phone calls" to check on
the progress of the park's renova-
Now, with funds from the North
Kenwood Neighborhood Association,
Edward White Hospital, the City of
St. Petersburg, Pinellas County and
the State of Florida, Booker Creek

GSbLer Anril 26 Mv 2. 2007

Park has become another great des-
tination for area residents.
Featuring new landscaping, a light-
ed, paved trail, two fishing piers, a
floating fountain, several footbridges
and a family picnic and playground
area, the expansive Booker Creek
Park is now a haven for weekend
recreation or peaceful meditation.
The official improvement plan also
includes restroom facilities, picnic
shelter areas, and a pier gazebo ex-
pected to be completed by 2008.
"I'm so proud of the city council and
the neighborhood association," said
Mayor Rick Baker at Saturday's
ceremony, "and of their partnership
to put together what is really a re-
markably great asset for the City of
St. Petersburg."
In addition to North Ken-
wood's efforts, Edward White Hos-
pital also played a significant role
in getting the project off the ground.
Neighborhood Association President
Phil Whysong, echoing the Mayors
statements, added that not only was
this new park great for the neigh-
borhood and the city, but that is
was also "going to be a healing park

for the folks at Edward White Hos-
pital." Roland Metivier, President
and CEO of EWH offered his own
words of gratitude, saying that the
park's improvements were "nothing
short of incredible."
North Kenwood's 13th annual picnic
began after the ceremony, offering
games, food and family fun for the
rest of the day.
"What a great thing this park is,"
said Councilmember Herb Poison.
"It shows what happens when people
put their heads together and think:
'We can do this."'

The City of Gulfport adopted the 49th Street Corridor Redevelopment Plan
-in October 2000. Included were 22 identified projects designed to further the
goals of,the redevelopment plan. Project 11 included streetscaping as part
of a larger beautification process. The streetscaping was jump started by
the City in 2003 utilizing an FDOT grant. Phase Iincluded new sidewalks,
curbing, driveways, landscaping, irrigation and signage from the Tangerine
Greenway south to 20th Avenue South. It cost $125,329.
In 2005 the City received a CDBG for $300,000 to complete Phase II of the
project. This project is currently out for bid and the City estimates construc-
tion to being by June 1, 2007. The quest for another CDBG would be for
Phase III, the final phase of the street scaping project.

Meet The Artist One of the great features of the 32nd Annual Mainsail Arts Festival, held this past weekend in Vinoy Park in downtown St.
Petersburg, was the opportunity to meet the artists and discuss their work, background and inspirations with them. Here Jim Lewk, a metal
sculptor from Miami proudly poses with some of the pieces displayed on Saturday. Lewk was born in Troyes, France and raised in New York.
He has worked as a full time artist since 1970. His sculptors has a unique style and are made of copper, welded with patina and polychrome
finish. The base is fossil core from Key Largo and Lewk says the beauty of the ancient stone, created more than 125,000 years ago is in its
fossil imperfections. The ballons are hand-blown glass.

Headed to Artist Waters Colorful copper fish were just
one of a full range of artists pieced displayed and sold by
more than 200 artists from around the world at the 32nd
Annual Mailsail Arts Festival along St. Petersburg's sce-
Snic waterfront Vinoy Park this past weekend. Organizers
estimate over 100,000 art enthusiasts attended the two day
event which featured art, entertainment, children's activities,
a juried art show, food and a breathtaking view of the Pier
and downtown St. Petersburg.

arts. Over 200 exhibiting artists from all over the United States display

The Art of Home
By Cathy Salustri

Last month Project: Home presented a two-
day show, Home Bound, in Williams Park.
Home Bound asked artists to answer the
questions "What is a home? What makes a
home?". Last weekend, Project: Home spon-
sored a discussion panel and presentation
of Home Bound in St. Petersburg College's
Downtown Center. Several artists attended
to listen to the panel discuss different ways
to deal with homelessness through art.
Stephen Ashton, documentary co-filmmaker
of Easy Street, also spoke to the group. Easy
Street, available from Netflix, chronicles the
lives of several of St. Pete's homeless over a
year. These stories include Patrick, the man
mentioned in the December Gabber article
Homeless for the Holiday.
"Life on the street for a lot of homeless
people," Ashton said Saturday night "can be
easy, but not comfortable."
The Project: Home post show consists of
a photographic documentary of the Home
Bound project. Amateur and professional
photographers documented the show, and
their work will hang through May 19 at the
St. Petersburg College Downtown Center,
located at 244 2nd Avenue North.


"Bearing witness and having a critical eye and making people aware is the first step in a
very long process," Dr. Tim Kennedy, a professor at the University of Tampa, told the audi-
ence. Kennedy has worked with homeless people in other areas of the world; his travels
have taken him to Alaska and Fiji. He has also made contributions to the film community,
one of the areas he teaches at the University of Tampa.
Kennedy asked the audience to find a partner, close their eyes, and jointly draw a pic-
ture of what they considered home. People all
over the world, he explained after the exercise,
draw home that looks very much like the image
he shows here.
"No one I've ever done this with throughout the
S world," Kennedy said "has ever had a different

Damaged Homes
Can Spell Danger
Hurricane-stricken Floridians
should take extra precautions when
returning to flood-damaged homes
or businesses td avoid accidents and
injuries state and federal disaster of-
ficials warned.
Hazards include exposed electri-
cal wires, gas leaks, contaminated
flood water and weakened building.
These are not always obvious but
can be life-threatening. Mold in a
flooded building can also be danger-
ous to human health, particularly to
people with allergies or respiratory
Before entering a building call the
utility company immediately if you
find downed power lines or detect
gas leaks. Look for external damage.
Examine the foundation for cracks
or other damage. Inspect porch roofs
and overhangs. If you find damage,
have a building inspector check the
building before you go in. Enter care-
fully. If the door sticks at the top, it
could mean the ceiling is ready to
cave in. Don't walk under a sagging
ceiling until it has been found safe.
After entering, look before you step.
Floors and stairs may be covered
with debris and very slippery. Watch
out for glass, nails and other haz-
ards. Be alert for gas leaks. Turn off
the circuit breakers and valves for
electricity, water and gas. Have all
utility connections inspected before
using them. Don't use appliances or
motors that have gotten wet until

ing mold. Watch for animals, espe-
cially snakes. Small animals flooded
out of their homes may seek shelter
in yours. Scare them away by poking
a stick into likely hiding places, tak-
ing particular care to listen for the
warning sound of a rattlesnake.
Carbon monoxide exhaust kills. Do
not use generators or other gasoline
powered machines indoors. All camp
stoves and charcoal grills should
only be used outside.
Spoiled food, water-logged cosmet-

Palms Escapes Close Call
By Cathy Salustri
Emergency workers evacuated a doctor's office Tuesday afternoon when a van
crashed into oxygen tanks outside the building. The crash drew emergency person-
nel from as far as Palm Harbor.
According to Joel Overstreet, South Pasadena's Fire Safety Specialist, a woman
driving a van lost control of her car, hit two other cars, and then ran into a liquid
oxygen tank, rupturing a valve on the tank.
The liquid oxygen became a gas as it leaked into the air. The atmosphere contains
less than 21% oxygen (nitrogen comprises most of the balance); pure oxygen "in-
creases the rate of combustion for anything around it", Overstreet said. Translation:
it makes things catch fire sooner and faster than ususal.
The first fire truck on the scene- a South Pasadena unit- saw what Overstreet
called' "potential for a large event" and asked for a "full structure response", which
brought units from Gulfport, St. Pete Beach, St. Petersburg, and Pinellas County's
Hazardous Materials team (Haz Mat). Haz Mat brought in units from Seminole,
Pinellas Park, Largo, and Palm Harbor.
Palms of Pasadena had to transfer ventilator-dependant patients at to other hos-
pitals, Overstreet said.Palms staff brought in oxygen tanks for patients using low
flow oxygen and canceled all surgeries and special procedures.
Those patients transferred to other facilities can return to Palms "when their oxy-
gen tank is back up," Overstreet said. That could have happened by the time you
read this or, Overstreet said, it could take days.
Because the tank contains a gas under pressure specialists (from Ocala and far-
ther) will have to recertify the tank once it gets repaired or replaced and recon-
nected to a series of valves and pipes, Overstreet explained.
The woman driving the van, who Overstreet said may have a medical condition that
led to Tuesday afternoon's unfortunate series of events, appeared unharmed when
she hit the tanks. She did get examined at Palms of Pasadena.

It's Nice to be Kneaded

By Morgan Landis
Walking into Marci's Thera-
peutic Massage was immediately
relaxing. The warm colors on the
wall, the slow soft rhythmic mu-
sic in the background, and the
friendly faces was like easing into
a warm bath. The tranquility I felt
entering into the building made
the stress of the day melt away.
Located in a holistic business
complex off of Pasadena, Marci
Anderson and her two friends
Lynda Marsh and Gytha Thomp-
son, opened their doors on Janu-
ary 2nd. Between the three girls,
there is a lot of experience. Marci
was licensed in 1989, Lynda in
1988, and Gytha since 1992. The
girls have ,known each other for
almost 10 years, working at the
same places and knowing each
other from the trade. Marci, who
grew up locally, decided to open
her own studio to provide the
community with a soothing thera-
peutic atmosphere to receive mas-
sages. Lynda and Gytha decided
to help with the vision.
Each therapist has her own
room, marked with a unique
touch, continuous with the easy
atmosphere. Although the three
girls run the place, they do have
room to grow and have an oppor-
tunity for a few more therapists
for part-time and weekend work.
They do not have a receptionist,
but if one of them isn't out smiling
in a few minutes to help you out,
you can leave a message and they
will call you back shortly.
"After filling out a short intake
form and having a conversation
with the client, I process all the
information to be able to help
withthe injury or problem," Lyn-
da explains. It is from the form
and talking to the client that they
know what kind of massage you
may need to alleviate the problem
the best.
The business offers deep tis-
sue, TMJ, pregnancy massages
and more to those who need it.
The girls also have onsite chair
massages for any businesses or

special events. They come to your
place and get hands on with your
employees (I hope you're reading
this boss). There are also gift cer-
tificates available for those who
want to give the gift, as they say,
"a rubbed body is a loved body."
Marci, Gytha, and Lynda were
very sincere, genuine, and warm
individuals who truly love their
job. There was no pretentiousness
about them. To Marci and her col-
leagues it's not just a job, it's a
lifestyle. They routinely give each
other massages, take courses, and
renew their certificates every two
years, so you know you'll be in
good hands.
After talking to the girls for
awhile, I was able to test their
product. They brought out a chair
and used their hands to work out
my kinks. After five minutes I
didn't care about my recent fender
bender or looking for a new apart-
ment, I was just happy to have
this opportunity as a reporter.
"It's a spa type setting without
the spa price," Gytha affirms. I

confirm it, but if you don't believe
me you can check it out yourself.
On Saturday Morning of May
5th, from 9pm to noon, the girls
would like to invite you to an open
house. You can experience the spa-
like setting yourself, meet these
beautiful ladies, and see what
their world is all about. I would
definitely recommend scheduling
an appointment as well, I'm still
in awe of their helping hands on
my shoulders.
