Another Great Day
in St. Petersburg
A Tale of Two Cities: Part II
By Cathy Salustri
"It's another great day in St. Peters-
burg," Mayor Rick Baker announced
Tuesday morning at Midtown's Tan-
gerine Plaza. Baker, along with a
bevy of St. Petersburg officials, at-
tended the grand opening of two
new businesses in the Sweetbay
shopping plaza on the corner of 18th
Avenue and 22nd Street South.
Mayor Baker- along with Deputy
Mayor Goliath Davis- has passion
when he talks about midtown. After
the ceremonies, he sits down on a
bench outside the Sweetbay, ready
to talk about the changes in Mid-
town.
I ask him first about citizen con-
cerns about crime. In researching
Midtown's progress I have heard a
lot of concern that the City could do
more to fight crime in Midtown.
The 2006 Uniform Crime Report for
St. Petersburg reports that eight of
the nine highest crime areas in the
city fall within Midtown's boundar-
ies. These areas have an average

Crime Watch Develops Business
Component Network
By Cathy Salustri
At the May 14 Crime Watch meeting, Gulfport Crime Watch wants 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 Stone,
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 build-
ing 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 will meet on Monday, May 14 at the 49th Street
Neighborhood Center. For more information, please call Ernie Stone at 322-
0855.

Stetson
re-dedicates Courtroom
Stetson University College of Law
re-dedicated the Florin-Roebig Court-
room on the Gulfport campus at 1401
61st St. S. at 1 p.m. on April 19. One
of Stetson's premier teaching court-
rooms, the Florin Roebig was re-
named in honor of the Palm Harbor
trial and litigation firm that made ex-
tensive contributions to the recently
renovated space.
"Wil Florin and Tommy Roebig have
given a wonderful gift to Stetson Col-
lege of Law that will be used to help
educate law students with the latest
courtroom technology well into the
next decade," said Vice President and
Dean Darby Dickerson.
At the re-dedication, law partners


Wil Florin and Tommy Roebig hon-
ored Professor Robert Bickel, whose
profound impact on their lives and ca-
reers inspired them to make the gift
to the college.
"Professor Bob Bickel is a mentor,
friend and colleague. It is inspiring to
hear him talk about the rights of the
disadvantaged. When you hear him
talk about civil rights, you hear pas-
sion and commitment," Florin said.
The Florin Roebig firm funded an
extensive face lift and technology up-
grade for the courtroom in the sum-
mer of 2006, adding flat-panel dis-
play screens in the gallery. Architect
Canerday and Associates, builder
Angle and Schmidt and designer Bev-
erlee Weismann used feedback from
Stetson students and faculty focus
groups to redesign the space.

In addition to the courtroom gift,
the Florin Roebig law firm will con-
tinue to help underwrite a summer
civil rights course taught by Professor
Bickel that features a bus tour of ma-
jor civil rights movement landmarks
in the south,
"Students need to meet history if
they 'are to understand civil rights,"
Professor Bickel said.

Over a Century Young


By Morgan Landis
Dorothy Helbig turned 101 years
old on April 27th. Born in Columbus,
Ohio in 1906, there wasn't even a re-
cord she was born. In those days they
didn't have the strict legal.standards
as they do now. It wasn't until she
wanted to travel to Europe that she
had to get a birth certificate. Grow-
ing up she had an outhouse for bath-
ing, and was excited when they got a
telephone. Her parents were in show
business so they did move around a
bit, but she didn't ended up in Florida


until 1979. After working as a dental
hygienist for most of her life, she is
now retired at The Fountains. On Sat-
urday she had over 20 friends join her
for a birthday celebration and I got to
sit down and ask a few questions.
What is your very first memory?
"I remember going to the railroad in
a handsome cab when I was 5 years
old. I was going back to Ohio from
New Jersey and ridingthis big cab to
the railroad station."
What is one of your fondest memo-
ries growing up?
"In 1914 President Wilson came to
Ohio. I was watching the parade and
the speech on High Street and lost my
brother. I was driven home in the boo-
bie car (horse drawn police cart) to the
house. My grandmother was so angry
because the whole neighborhood saw
the car and it was such an embarrass-
ment."
"I also did a lot of traveling. I've been
to 63 countries and have been on 20
cruises. Each one had their own cul-
ture and I could never pick a favor-
ite."
What would you consider one of
your biggest accomplishments?
"I have an awful lot of friends and
they love me and I think that's won-


derful. It does get lonely as you get
older. I was always able to make a
lot of friends, but I lost them over the
years."
What is the biggest change you see
in society?
"I am floored by the internet. It's
phenomenal. I don't understand it.
Same with cell phones. They can do
pictures, and games and you can talk
and you can push one button just to
call someone. Who knows what they'll
be able to do next."
Do you have any advice for the
younger generation?
"I find most of them are spoiled rot-
ten. They get everything handed to
them. There are some who are very
good, and get the schooling and do
things with their lives, but a lot I see
slum off their parents and are not get-
ting anywhere."
"When it comes to relationships, the
more you can give love the better it
is.
What is the secret to living a long
life?
"I say it was probably the cocktail I
had before dinner each night. I pre-
fer bourbon but occasionally I change
it up and drink Vodka. I like Blue
Goose."

YOU & THE


LAW

What are the
Responsibilities of a
Successor Trustee?
The use of a revocable living trust
allows the beneficiaries of a trust to
receive the assets of a deceased trust
settlor without requiring formal Pro-
bate Court approval. A named suc-
cessor trustee in a trust document
has certain responsibilities which
should be performed in the admin-
istration of the trust. Some of the
ordinary and necessary steps which
a successor trustee should take in


lawful and proper trust administra-
tion are:
A. The trust document should be
reviewed for legal sufficiency and
interpretation as well as each trust
amendment;
B. The implementation of the sub-
stitution of the successor trustee
should be accomplished;
C. Interested persons concern-
ing the administration of the trust
should be served with the required
notices in a proper and timely fash-
ion;
D. A successor trustee has a legal
duty to protect, insure and manage
trust assets and my have liability
for the improper accomplishment of
these legal duties;
E. A successor trustee has an affir-
mative duty to invest trust assets in
accordance with the prudent inves-

F. A successor trustee is respon-
sible to make any contributions due
to the personal representative of the

Great Weekend!
Dear Editor: "Kudos to Lori Rosso,
President of the Gulfport Chamber of
Commerce, and all those that helped
her pull off a successful Springfest
2007 this past weekend.
Since we are new to the community,
this was the first time we ever had the
opportunity to participate, and it was
definitely incredible how they pulled
it off in such a scant period of time.
The weather cooperated, the streets
were lined with booths, tables, arts,
crafts, food and music, there was
something for everybody and it once
again put Gulfport on the map.
We are truly pleased to be a part of
this community. See you next year
Catherine and Jose Luis Pawelek
Elements Global Cuisine



Thanks from

the Chamber

On behalf of the Gulfport Chamber
of Commerce I would like to extend
a heartfelt thank you to everyone
involved with the planning,
production and promotion of this past
Saturday's 13th annual Springfest
celebration.
Chamber president Lori Rosso,
from the Seabreeze Manor Bed &
Breakfast is to be highly commended
for the energy and spirit she brought
to the event from the get go. From the
moment we received council approval
to co-sponsor Springfest, and save
it from the City's budget chopping

block, our timetable was very short to
produce such a large festival. In just
eight short weeks Lori was able to
put together the largest celebration of
its kind in recent history. My entire
career has involved event planning
and I know first hand that pulling off
a feat like this is no small order. We
are indeed lucky to have Lori at the
helm of the Chamber this year.
A special word of thanks to the City
of Gulfport. These are trying times
for local governments. Without clear
direction on what is going to happen
with insurance and tax reform at the
state level it is extremely difficult
to make budget decisions right now.
Gulfport's business community,
represented by the Chamber was
thankful for the opportunity to work
together in partnership with our
government to save this popular
community celebration. As times get
even tougher in the next few months
we hope we can use this as a model to
continue to find innovative solutions,
even if budget dollars get as scarce as
many fear.
We could not have produced such
a successful event without the
support of our sponsors. We want to
particularly thank Boca Ciega Yacht
Club for their premier sponsorship
that led the way for others to
participate. Our Platinum sponsors
included:
The City of Gulfport, Boca Ciega
Yacht Club, The Gabber Newspaper
and BeachLife Entertainment Guide.
Gold sponsors included: The Culby
Group and the Gulfport Merchants
Association. Silver sponsors:
American Legion Andy Anderson
Post 125, Elsie Crimaldi and Stetson
University College of Law. Bronze
sponsors: Blind Dog Productions,


Freehold Partners, LLC, Gulfport
Central Title, Small Adventures
Bookshop, and Sea Breeze Manor
B&B Inn. Community Sponsors:
Dana Jo,
Diane Saab, Mike Calamari, Probeck
Chiropractic Clinicand Senior
Solutions of Pinellas County.
Three Chamber volunteers in
particular deserve individual praise
for the many long hours they put in
to make Springfest run so smoothly.
They are Margo Scannell, Deborah
Peak and Ruth Bardsley. These
ladies gave generously of their time
before, during and now even after the
event. They are the epitome of what
makes Gulfport so special and the
Chamber deeply appreciates all their
efforts. Numerous other volunteers
helped staff the Chamber tent (set up
and taken down by Chamber board
member Tim Coppola from Copolla's
Tree Service) and we appreciate the
involvement of everyone who worked
hard that busy day.
Many thanks to the over 135
vendors who supported the event this
year...stretching booth space from the
Library to the Casino and creating
the biggest street festival in recent
memory on Beach Boulevard. Kudos
as well to the many performers who
entertained us with a wide range of
music throughout the day.
Most importantly, the Chamber
would like to thank you for supporting
the event. We are enormously proud
our community, its businesses and its
people. We like to say "Great Things
Are Happening in Gulfport"...and
they happen because of YOU!

blanks, what is crossed out and what is
added that give you the value, security

Urban

Guard

Dogs
By Cathy Salustri
These two peahens stroll
through the Art District
down by the water. Many
eastern religions consider
peafowl birds with special
qualities, but in the west
some refer to the birds as
"urban guard dogs" Peafowl
have been called "urban
guard dogs" because their
distinctive cries can warn
of approaching people, ac-
cording to Wikipedia.com.

Forever Young Seeks
a Few Good Men
The Forever Young Dancers are
looking for a few good men to join
their cast and dance their pants off
for charity. Open auditions to find
unabashed talent for this charis-
matic dance troupe of senior gents
are scheduled for Monday, May 7th
at 6:30 p.m. at Largo Cultural Center
located at 105 Central Park Drive,
near East Bay Drive just east of Sem-
inole Boulevard in Largo.
Gentlemen 50+ who are exhibition-
ists at heart, have pep in their step
and a tiger in their tank need apply.
No dance experience is necessary,
only a great personality and a good
sense of humor are required.
Contestants should bring a Speedo
or bathing trunks. They'll be judged
on their personality, poise, and their
ability to shake their groove thing.
The dancers perform hilarious num-
bers to the amusement of audiences
both young and old. The infamous
half-Monty reveal dares to contradict
the stereotypical grandfatherly im-
age and proves there is more to Tam-
pa Bay's seniors than rocking chairs
or limited mobility.

Green Thumb

Grows
ByShtyWson
More vendors than ever
brought big crowds to last
weekend's Green Thumb
Festival at Walter Fuller Park
in St. Petersburg. The weekend
event, sponsored by the city, is
now in its 21" season with no
signs of slowing down.
This year's festival fea tured
environmentalandhorticult ural
exhibits, the Garden Club of
St. Petersburg's flower show,
soil and water diagnostic


Shelly Czupryna (above right) was excited to
visit "the mushroom lady," Stephanie Schorr, a
professional potter and co-owner of the Crafts-
man House in the Grand Central District in St.
I Pete. Schorr started eating the whimsical
ceramic mushrooms to give her the edge in a
friendly competition, and soon found that they
were a big hit. "They're fun," says Schorr. "It's
kind of liberating to make something that has
no utilitarian function."

It wasn't just about the garden at the Green
Thumb Festival. Kathy Crotts and Brady (left),
of St. Petersburg, showed off "Artsy gifts for
pets and their people" at their Adventures in
clinic, the popular plant auction, Bradyville booth last weekend.
a tool-sharpening booth, and lives
entertainment and children's programs. Of course, all of that was in addition to
the myriad of plant and crafts vendors lining both sides of 4 separate walking
paths. Nearly every plant that could possibly grow in Florida's climate an
even a couple that probably won't were showing off their late-spring colors.
Lawn and garden ornaments from 7 foot tikis to delicate mobiles from Thailand
were attracting crowds like honey bees to orange blossoms. Jumbo corndogs,
funnel cake and other festival fare kept folks fueled over the two-day event.

Backstage at the Follies


Fifteen entertainers performed at a nearly sold out Catherine A. Hickman Theatre on
Tuesday evening as part of the Gulfport Senior Follies to benefit the Gulfport Multipurpose
Senior Center Foundation. The performances included vocalists, a harmonica player, a
pianist, a musician and tap dancing. Joe Koehler, kneeling, producer of the event said that
about half the performers were strictly amateurs and the other half had had some sort of
professional performance experience. Despite numerous technical and sound problems,
a forgiving and enthusiastic crowd gave warm welcomes and accolades to all the perform-
ers. The Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charitable not-for-profit organization which exists solely
to support programs and activities at the Gulfport Multipurpose Senior Center.

Password Question
Results in Charges
Gulfport Lieutenant Robert Vin-
cent has arrested and charged two
juveniles, Troy McTier and Eric Den-
nis, with burglary and grand theft.
McTier allegedly took a stolen lap-
top computer to school with him, ask-
ing around for somebody who knew
how to access the computer without
the password. A suspicious teacher
confiscated the computer and noti-
fied the resource officer, which led
to the Gulfport Police Department's
involvement.



















W ell, I finally watched the
tape (DVD actually
modern technology) of the
hearing two weeks' ago on the harbor
management plan, meaning the
mooring field.
It felt like it went on forever, although
I guess it didn't. More like two hours
and 20 minutes. But it sure seemed
long. Beyond that, it's hard to know
what to say, what to think.
I was left with a series of impressions,
though.
Is it possible to talk a subject to
death? It seems so, at least in this
case. Of course, that would please
some people.
It was about two years ago that the
first mooring field plan was shot down
by City Council with a vote of one in
favor, four against. Since then, there
has been a pretty constant parade
of speakers at council meetings
commenting on the subject. Bob
Worthington used those comments to
ask that the subject be brought back
to City Council for reconsideration.
The council said okay, so there have'
been a cherette, a focus group, another
long string of comments at the City
Council public sessions, and at least
two public hearings. And then there
were all the hearings and discussions
leading up to the "no" vote two years
ago.
So to me, it feels like the subject has
been discussed ad nauseam.
Not so the opponents, I guess.
Some are still complaining about
the cherette last August, which
wasn't a very good forum for their
objections. But they must have had
an opportunity to speak somewhere,
sometime, because we've all heard
most of the objections, and most of
the comments of support, over and
over again.
Isn't it about time to put this
discussion to rest?
Never trust someone who says
they speak for the "majority."


k few thoughts

out the mooring

field hearing

Roger Turner
VIEWPOINT


That may be an effective political
argument, sometimes, but it's not a
fact.
Unless the "majority" has somehow
asked the person to speak for them,
or the person has surveyed all
the homes in town, or has hired a
professional, scientific survey-taker,
the person cannot possibly speak for
everyone.
And of course, whenever someone
speaks for the majority, it always
turns out that the majority agrees
with them. Which is another point
that raises suspicion.
I don't know what the majority
thinks on this issue, or any issue for
that matter. Do you? I'm not sure
that anyone in the city does. So why
should we accept that this one person
knows?
Likewise, never take interpretations
of election results at face value.
Because numbers and results can be
interpreted all kinds of ways.
The only thing I know for sure
about our recent election is that
Mayor Yakes won reelection by a
slim majority and that Michele King
won reelection by a slim minority,
plus Christine Brown came in a
surprisingly strong second for the
Ward 2 seat and Clark Sherer made
a very strong showing for a political
newcomer in this town. Beyond that,
interpretations get very subjective.
I don't know what the election said
about the mooring field. Unless I
missed it somehow, there was no
referendum for this issue anywhere
on the ballot. I suspect that anyone
who is interpreting the results
otherwise is doing so for their own
purposes, to try and add weight to
their own point of view.
Again, I don't know what the
majority thinks. Which brings up
another question.
Should we have a referendum on the
mooring field? Mayor Yakes suggested
that we do so at the hearing two


weeks ago. It's an intriguing idea.
The speakers at the hearing seemed
to be pretty evenly divided, for and
against. But then, I'm guessing that at
least two-thirds of them had already
expressed their views publicly. So our
sampling is still fairly small at this
point. Would a referendum help?
My guess, again, is that the outcome
would be pretty close, and that the
turnout, although maybe a bit higher
than for a "normal" election, would
still be less than half the registered
voters. So we probably would still not
know how the majority of people in
town feel about the issue.
And I would bet that there are a
whole lot of people in this town who
don't have strong feelings one way
or the other. Somehow, people seem
to get involved in other things, like
going to their jobs, taking care of
their homes, raising their kids, living
their lives, without getting involved
in city issues. Imagine that.
The last time we had ,a public
referendum, that I'm aware of, was
when the city decided to build what
we now call Williams Pier back in
the early 1980s. The question, then,
involved a one mill increase in the
ad valorem tax rate to pay for the
construction. No such tax increase
has been mentioned for this project
this time.
I suppose a referendum would
make it easier for some of our City
Council members to make these hard
decisions about the mooring field. Is
that enough reason to have one?
Referendum or not, we're back at the
same place we were two years ago,
except that, this time, the council
voted unanimously to go ahead into
the permitting phase of the project.
Before that, they voted 3 to 2 to
approve the harbor management
plan, with the mayor saying he liked
the plan but was voting against it
because he wanted the referendum
first. Michele King agreed with him,
more or less, without saying she
approved of the plan.
So here we are, two long years later,
at the same place but with a different
result at least so far. The difference
this time: Ted Phillips and Mary
Stull appear to be strongly in the pro
corner with Bob Worthington.
So I guess we're making progress.

Springfes+ 200707
It was the event that almost wasn't. City employees had quietly cancelled
Gulfport's annual Spring celebration because of budget cuts, but it was re- ,
vived just 8 weeks ago when the Gulfport Chamber of Commerce asked the ,, ,
City if they could assume much of the production and marketing costs and' .
work together to save the popular street fair. Saturday's 13th Annual Spring-
fest was the largest downtown event in recent memory, with more than 135
vendors stretching from the Library to the Casino. The event featured live en-
tertainment, pirates, a rock climbing wall, bungee jumping, pirates, delicious'
food and arts and crafts of all kinds. Organizers estimated that about 5-8,000
attended the eight hour celebration. "We were thrilled with the enormous .
success of Springfest. Many thanks to the City of Gulfport, our sponsors, ven- i.
dors, entertainers, the Gabber and to those who attended," said Lori Rosso, '
president of the Chamber. .

"We weren't sure if we could pull it off all the planning in just eight weeks and because .
of such strong community support it turned out to be the largest street fair in Gulfport in ,, .

the City's budget cutting ax. "The City was wonderfully supportive," continued Rosso. "Hook" the sushi chef at Aquabella prepares.

Laugh with a Child
Gulf Coast Community Care needs
volunteers age 30 and older for its
mentoring program. Volunteers are
matched with children 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. There is a need
for volunteers for children of all ages.
Volunteers give the gift of time to
one child and are provided social
events and support by agency staff.
No experience is necessary. There
are no costs. Volunteers spend a few
hours a week in simple activities such
as reading, fishing, baking, teaching
a craft or visiting a park with a child.
We have children throughout Pinel-
las waiting for mentors!
To learn how you can make a lasting
difference in the life of a child, please
call Beverly at 479-1841 or Bonnie at
479-1825.

Dining For Life
byGreg Stemm / photo by Sean Rommell

Prevention Pete Makes the Rounds in
Gulfport During Dining Out for Life Peli-
can Pete, the mascot for AIDS Service As-
sociation of Pinellas (ASAP) was spotted at
several Gulfport dining establishments during
last Thursday's Dining Out for Life fundrais-
ing event. Participating restaurants agreed
to donate 25 percent or more of their day's
profits to go to help with AIDS/HIV support,
prevention and treatment in Pinellas County.
9 of the 23 participating restaurants .in the
County were in Gulfport, the greatest support
of any one community in the area4
Daniel Hodge, community outreach coordi-
nator for ASAP said that he had heard many
examples of success with some restaurants
doubling their business or more that day and
that diners were very patient at many restau-
rants when waits exceeded an hour due to
the strong patronage. "We were thrilled with a1
the level of support we received, particularly .-
from Gulfport. It was a very energizing and uplift evening," said Hodge. While
organizers don't yet have a full tally of the money raised from restaurants, dona-
tions received directly from patrons at participating sites have already exceeded
$7,000. Hodge said official results from the money received from restaurants will
be posted to the DiningOutForLife.com website as soon as they are available.
Dining Out for Life is the single largest AIDS/HIV fundraiser ih North America.
It began in 1991 in Philadelphia and is now held in 42 cities across the United
States and Canada. This was the first year of participation for the Tampa Bay
area. Organizers started with restaurants in Pinellas County this year, but hope
to expand to both sides of the bay in coming years.

Tree Species Added to
City's Undesirable List
By ordinance Gulfport City Council
added four tree species to its list of
undesirable exotic or invasive plants
on Tuesday. Planting of such species
within city limits if forbidden by the
ordinance and fees for removal of any
existing specimens are waived.
Earlier this year Gulfport City
Council approved a resolution speci-
fying the City's exotic invasive tree
removal program. During passage
of this resolution it was noted that
there might be other invasive exotic
species which would need to be added
to the City, tree code. The City Clerk's
office has reviewed the exotic species
list maintained by the County and
the State of Florida and found four
species not listed in the City codes.
J The new ordinance adds Carrot-
wood (Cupaniopsis anacardioides),
Chinese tallow and Popcorn Trees (sa-
pium sebiferum), and the Java plum
(Syzygium cumini) to the list. Other
trees already included are Australian
Pine, Brazilian Pepper, Catclaw Mi-
S. mosa, Chinaberry, Ear tree/Earpod
tree, Eucalyptus, Ficus (except Ban-
yan), Monkeypuzzle, Punk tree, Silk
Oak and Woman's tongue.

Cities,
from front page
crime rate of roughly 22%.
That means that out of
every 100 people living in
those neighborhoods, 22
fell prey to murder, rape,
robbery, aggravated as-
sault, burglary, larceny, or
auto theft in 2006.
"You can certainly spin
the story that way if you
want to," Baker says, add-
ing "There are crime prob-
lems everywhere. Crime is
down."
The nine federal census
tracts in question reflect an
increase in crime. In 2000,
the crime rate in those nine
areas hovered just above
19%. However, the Mayor
is right- the overall crime
rate for St. Petersburg fell
from 8.2% in 2000 to 8.1%
last year.
Not everyone agrees with
Baker's optimism about
the crime rate. Some ac-
cuse Baker of focusing on
economic development and
ignoring crime problems in
their neighborhoods.
Lou Delprete, a Central
Oak Park resident for over
40 years, doubts Baker's
ability to revitalize mid-
town in a way that will im-
prove the quality of life for
existing residents.
"I think he listens to Go-
liath Davis," Delprete says
"which means nothing. I
think he's looking at busi-
nesses and condos and
he's not concerned with
the residents at all. He'll
pour money into midtown
and still have.a high crime
rate."
"It would be a huge mis-
take to assume we chose to
do economic development
instead of law enforcement,"
Baker says, "We chose to do
it in addition to."
Davis shares Baker's pas-
sion for Midtown, growing
more animated as he de-
nies problems of discord.
"We didn't come in and

Gabber May 3 May 9, 2007


assume we had any idea of
what the community was
going to want," Davis says,
"This process is a direct re-
sult of community engage-
ment and focus groups."
From communication with
Midtown residents, Davis
says the city developed .a
strategic plan for Midtown.
That plan includes eco-
nomic development, codes
enforcement, housing, and
public safety. All those
components, Davis says,
must dovetail to improve
Midtown.
"You can't arrest your way
out of an economic prob-
lem," he says.
"You've got to do every-
thing at the same time:
infrastructure, crime, and
economic development,"
Baker explains.
Both men suggest that
crime poses less of a con-
cern than the other issues
in Midtown.
"If you look at the number
of people who are buying
houses, that's not indica-
tive of the people worrying
about crime," Baker says.
Tom Tito, a 33 year vet-
eran of Bartlett Park, dis-
agrees.
"There's all kinds of new
buildings," Tito, presi-
dent of the Bartlett Park
Neighborhood Association
explains, "but according
to the St. Pete Times last
October, 5,000 people have
moved out. I think he's got
a lot of wishful thinking go-
ing on."
Rose Mary Kitchen and
her husband have lived in
Bartlett Park for 37 years.
She does worry about
crime.
"You can't help but feel
endangered," she says af-
ter Tuesday night's Crime
Watch meeting, "You never
know when a shooting can
occur."
Clearly, not everyone
agrees. That, according to
Baker, doesn't mean bad
things for the City.
"The conflict you're see-


ing... is not an unhealthy
conflict. I don't mind people
pushing us- the worst thing
is when a neighborhood has
givenup," Baker says. As he
speaks, a man approaches.
Noel Pennington, a Lake
Maggiore Shores resident,
wants to thank the Mayor
and shake his hand.
"I think St. Petersburg
is changing a lot, and it's
all for the better," he tells
Baker.
Scott Svift, a Bartlett
Park resident, agrees that
the change has helped.
"I've become a fan of the
Mayor because I can see
what he's doing," Swift says
"and there's a lot of pain
to it. You're going from a
retirement based com-
munity. The city was very
stable- and unchanged- for
about 30 years."
Changes in the population
and what attracts people to
St. Petersburg have meant
that city government has
had to change how it han-
dles certain issues.
"We're building a much
better city, but you have
to change law enforcement
and prevention strategies
as your culture and popula-
tion changes," Swift says.
Everyone I spoke to agreed
that St. Petersburg Police
do all they can to help, but
can't do it alone.
"You've go to call in con-
stantly- without mercy and
with zero tolerance. It's the
one thing we can do," Swift
told the Crime Watch group
Tuesday night.
"They need more police
officers," Tito says, "The
Sheriff said he would pro-
vide more deputies to help
fill in, but the Mayor refus-
es to ask."
Kitchen and her husband
Johnnie say that parents
need to take responsibility
for their children.
"The kids need training,"
Mr. Kitchen says.
Delprete says the city
needs a curfew, something
brought up at Tuesday


night's Crime Watch meet-
ing.
Davis and Baker say that,
despite these complaints,
Midtown continues to move
in the right direction. Bak-
er says that by the end of
his term, "I think we'll be
very close to being there
in terms of the seamless-
ness."
Davis grew up in St. Pe-
tersburg and currently lives
in Pinellas Point. He told
me he would have no prob-
lem if his daughter wanted
to live in Midtown.
"There's nowhere in the
City I wouldn't live," he
smiles.
Tito and Delprete both
shudder and shake their
heads "no" when asked
if they would want their
daughters to move into
Midtown.
"You're talking to the
wrong people," Davis says,
"Go up to anyone here and
ask them how they feel
about it," he adds, gestur-
ing to the crowd gathered
at the ribbon cutting
I approach Sam Thomas.
Thomas has lived in Mid-
town "off and on" since the
1970s. I ask him how he
feels about the new shops.
"I think it's positive,"
Thomas says as he leans
against the new Beauty
Supply store in Tangerine
Plaza.
"How committed," I ask
next "do you think the City
is to improving the quality
of life in Midtown?"
He pauses.
"I think to a certain ex-
tent."
Where, I ask, does that
commitment end?
"Behind the Sweetbay.
It's like if the outside of the
house looks good, but when
you open the door, it looks
ratty."

Firefighters May Be
Hired at Higher Pay
The City of Gulfport has approved
a Memorandum of Understanding
with the St. Petersburg Association
of Firefighters amending the current
bargaining agreement allowing
the City, if necessary, to start an
exceptionally qualified newly hired
firefighter at a pay rate greater than
Step 1, but not to exceed Step 4.
Gordon Yaudes, fire chief told council
that at the present time it is difficult
for Fire Departments to hire firefighter
paramedics. This is particularly true
for smaller agencies. Yaudes said
there are more job openings than
there are paramedics to fill them. As a
result, fire departments are providing
hiring incentives to attract needed
personnel. These incentives may
include lateral entry that permits the
hiring agency to be competitive for
experienced and qualified personnel.
Current Step 1 for Fire Fighter/
Paramedic is $40,113.48. Step 4, which
is the maximum introductory salary
allowed under the newly approved
Memorandum of Understanding, is
$43,833.08,

Council Supports
Fed Funds for
Wildlife Refuge System
A City resolution was passed by
Council expressing concern that
federal funding has not kept pace with
the rising operation and maintenance
costs for the National Wildlife Refuge
System and that continued shortfalls
may result in further degradation
of the natural resources and public
efforts for which the organization
was founded. The Tampa Bay
Regional Planning Council lhas
passed a similar resolution and has
urged local municipalities to follow


suit. The resolution will be sent to
federal congressional and legislative
delegations.


Worthington Appointed
to TBRPC
Gulfport City Council member
Bob Worthington was approved by
that body to replace vice mayor Ted
Phillips on the Tampa Bay Regional
Planning Council. It was noted that
Worthington is already involved with
certain aspects of the Bay Management
System of the TBRPC and is familiar
with their procedures. Phillips is
stepping down to concentrate more
efforts on the Area Agency for Aging
for Pinellas and Pasco Counties.
Phillips is currently serving as vice
president of that organization.

An A+ in Making Your Home Safe


By Morgan Landis

Raccoons can be deadly.
Not just deadly because
they can attack you, but
deadly because of what
they leave behind. As a
matter of fact it can be
such a big problem it at-
tracted the attention of
NBC producers recently. In
a recent episode of House
(a FOX medical drama), a
young boy almost dies of a
parasite he caught from a
raccoon.
The timing of this epi-
sode is important because
it is the beginning of rac-
coon mating season. Dur-
ing mating season, as
well as other times of the
year, raccoons scent post
to attract the opposite sex.
Scent posting, in every-
day .terms, is like a dog
marking his territory: The
animal leaves their 'scent'
around their nest to ward
off enemies and attract
others. Unfortunately
many raccoons nest in peo-
ple's attics, and their scent
not only attracts other rac-
coons, but possums and
other animals looking for a
place to stay.
Having a raccoon as a
houseguest is not some-
thing I would take very
lightly. According to the
Centers for Disease Con-
trol (CDC) and the United
States Department of Ag-
riculture (USDA), raccoons
carry some very serious
diseases. They are one of
the top anthrax carriers.
In addition, they carry ra-
bies, encephalitis, and tu-
berculosis (not to mention
the fleas and ticks that
nest on them).
The scariest one for me
would be Baylisascaris,
which is the proper name
for raccoon roundworm.
The CDC says that it has a
20% death rate in humans


who catch it, and if you do
survive you can go blind
from it. The kid on House
was one of the lucky ones.
If dying from a raccoon
disease doesn't faze you,
then maybe the amount of
damage to your house may
get your attention. Rac-
coons usually find a small
hole as a point of entrance,
but then will push and pull
at wood to get in. They
will tear at insulation, air
ducts, and electrical wires
to make their nests. And
since they live in your at-
tic, they do all their eating,
peeing, and other matters
in your home, where y6u
can come in contact with it.
I even heard a story about
a couple's ceiling falling in
on- their bedroom because
of raccoon damage. They
may be small, but they can
cause big damage.
That's where A+ Res-
toration comes' in. Owner
Alex Pemberton grew up
in the country helping out
with the family's construc-
tion business. Since he
grew up surrounded by an-
imals, he's been trapping
for a long time, and even
became a Florida State
Wildlife Officer for several
years, until he was forced
to retire do to a non-job
related injury. Alex then
combined the knowledge
of animals, and his expe-
rience in construction, to
help homeowners keep un-
wanted animals (such as
raccoons, bats, pigeons and
rodents) out of their home
and repair any damage
they may have caused.
"Most businesses can
trap the animal, or they
can fix a few things.here
and there," says Alex, "but
if they don't get rid of [the
scent posting] up there,
then the animal will be
back."
What keeps the raccoons


Alex E. Pemberton, owner of A+ Restorations and former Florida
State Wildlife Officer, uses his special talents with animals and
construction in this specialized field.


coming back is the scent.
As mentioned earlier,
animals mark their terri-
tory. The scent does not go
away, even after bleach-
ing, therefore once mating
season starts again, the
raccoons follow their noses
back to your house. A rac-
coon can get aggressive,
while in heat, and will tear
holes in roofs just to get
to the scent. A+ Restora-
tion comes in, removes all
the urine, feces, and other
biohazardous waste that is
left behind, including the
scent.
There is no government
regulation in this industry,
so it's good to know that
Alex's company is the only
certified Biohazardous An-
imal Waste Remediation
Contractor in the state of
Florida. Between Alex's ex-
perience with animals and
construction, he definitely
has the unique talents
needed in this specialized
field. ;
Alex and his crews will
clean your home from any
animal waste, repair the
,damage they cause, and


Paid Advertisemer't


many times your insurance
covers the work. A+ Resto-
ration not only takes care
of raccoon damage, but can
also help with cleaning up
after rodents (such as rats
and squirrels), possums,
bats, and pesky birds like
pigeons.
In addition to the clean
up, A+ will also trap any
nuisance wildlife (rac-
coons, opossums, squirrels,
etc.) that are in your attic,
or around your home.
As of right now I feel a
little better about living in
an apartment; I don't have
attics for raccoons to live
in. Although I will keep my
landlord updated on any
weird noises I may hear,
and I'll know who to call to
get the job done right.
