49th St. from front page

Block Grant (CDBG) on September
20, 2005. The grant is for construc-
tion costs only.
Bids for the project were received on
July 18, 2006, but rejected by council
on August 15, 2006 because all bids
received far exceeded budgeted funds
with some bids exceed $1 million dol-
lars.
Council directed city staff to rebid the
project with a reduced scope of work.
According to Don Sopak, public
works director, when staff revised the
project they are using existing green
space along 49th Street for planting
areas and creating new areas only
where needed for lighting. The City's


Parks Department will install the
planting soil and landscaping.
The project includes directional
booring' of a two-inch reclaimed wa-
ter line from 7th Avenue South to
Gulfport Boulevard to loop the water
service which the contractor will in-
stall. The tapping of the line and the
irrigation work will be done by the
City's Utilities and Parks Depart-
ments. The stormwater improve-
ments, stamped crosswalks and new
driveways were removed from the
plans and the amount of sidewalk
and curbing replacement was also
removed.
Sopak told council that he had done
project engineering with the contrac-
tor and had reduced the costs from
an initial cost of $453,429.90 down

to $405,322.90, a savings of almost
$48,000.' The single largest savings
was cutting the contingency fund
for the project to 10 percent, slash-
ing nearly $20,000 from the original
costs.
Council approved a budget amend-
ment which authorizes the $195,0i7
above the $300,000 CDBG. Accord-
ing to city manger Tom Brobeil, the
financial impact of this increase in
fiscal '07 will be to essentially reduce
the unobligated fund balance in the
Capital projects to near zero. Since
projects in future fiscal years are de-
pendent on the availability of this
fund balance the number or magni-
tude of these projects will need to be
reduced during the Fiscal '08 budget
process. The $38,350 was already
budgeted
Council also approved the use of the
original landscape plans as proposed
by TBE Group, Inc. They had con-
sidered the use of alternative plant-
ings outlined in the "Guide to Florida
Friendly Landscaping," but decided
that since there was no cost savings
realized the plants originally pro-
posed, while somewhat less drought
tolerate and requiring some irriga-
tion would be more colorful and have
a greater impact visually on the rede-
velopment efforts.
"I'm very excited to see this hap-
pening," said council member Mary
Stull who represents Ward 4 where
the 49th Redevelopment area is lo-
cated. "I'm sure that the businesses
and residents are going to be pleased
that we are finally moving forward
on this."

Cover Girl
By Cathy Salustri
"Do you work for The Gabber?" The woman's voice i ,
stopped me as I tried to duck out of the Art Village
Courtyard, packed to almost oppressive numbers with -
people waiting to hear the Urban Gypsies.'I said I did.







"Oh, good, they still have that. You
put me on the cover in 1979." She
introduced herself.
S Marisa Carmody found her way
lto our cover in the spring of 1979
(above) when she became the first
"- woman to make the All-American
basketball team. She- attended
Boca Ciega High School. Her dad worked as a Gulfport police officer; her mother had
worked as a fashion model. They called Gulfport home.
Marisa lives in north Tampa now, but returned to Gulfport for the Saturday, evening stroll.
She included her son, Max (pictured above) in her evening. Perhaps one day he'll stop
someone else in a Gabber shirt and tell them how glad he is that we're still around.

Public Comment

& Council Quotes

Excerpts heard at the May 15, 2007 Gulfport Council Meeting
-I just hope they don't throw those stones at me." Mayor Michael Yakes
commenting on five stones left on the public comment podium by an audience
member making a point about the USF project.

-I don't need science or monitoring buoys to tell me that the water qual-
ity is bad in Clam Bayou and I don't need it tell me that it's going to get
better with our efforts. Ijust know it will." Vice Mayor Ted Phillips during
the USF presentation.

-Thank you Jim O'Reilly! Disabled Gulfport resident Janice Ryan comment-
ing on the efforts of the city:s department of leisure services director in getting a
new handicapped ramp installed at the Casino.

-After consideration by residents of several names I am going to intro-
duce a resolution at the next council meeting designating the new name
of Ward 4 as 'Tangerine Park'. We hope that this will help give my Ward
more identity and alleviate us being the red headed step child all the
time. Council Member Mary Stull during Other Business.

-Ijust have to say this as an economics major. $50,000 is $50,000 is $50,000

are still going to encumber $50,000... and if you aren't then better not tell

ple of Sun, Sand & Symphony. You
can either fill your picnic basket
and cooler, or pick up some burgers,
snacks and drinks from several con-
cession tents on the beach. Reserved
tables for 8 are also available for
$250, which includes an assortment
of wines, sodas, waters and snacks.
Friday, May 25, 6 to 10 p.m. Den-
nis Wallace & Friends 6 to 9 p.m.

sic Motown high-energy sound of
the 60's and 70's.
The Tampa Bay Symphony from
7:30 -9:30 p.m. Saturday, May 26.
From fist-pumping patriotic an-
thems to show tune sing-alongs, the
Tampa Bay Symphony delivers an
exceptional soundtrack for an eve-
ning on the beach. A spectacular
fireworks display will immediately
follow the performance by the sym-
phony on Saturday evening. The
event is free to the public. Look at

You & THE


SAWI

Joint Ownership, A Will or
Trust
Andy, a widower with four children,
had most of his available cash invest-
ed into four Certificates of Deposit.
The teller at the bank told Andy that
if he would hold each C/D in a trust,
for each of his children, there would
be no probate on Andy's death and
each child would then automatically
become the owner of one C/D. What
the bank teller advised Andy was
true, but Andy was not probably told
the whole story.
If Andy was to hold one C/D in trust
for each of his children, whose mon-
ey would be used if Andy required
expensive surgery, twenty-four
hour home care or care in a nursing


home? Under such circumstances,
what had been planned as an equal
distribution on death would substan-
tially decrease the inheritance of one
or more of his children because mon-
ey would be spent for Andy's care.
In addition, if each of Andy's C/D's
were held in trust for one of his chil-
dren, another problem would arise if
SAndy became incapacitated. No one
would have access to Andy's money
and then it would be necessary to
have the Court appoint a guardian
for Andy. Even though the guardian
could be one of Andy's children, this
could create a needless expense and
a great inconvenience.
At the very least, Andy should have
a Will which states that whatever
money is left in Andy's estate after
the costs of his daily living, lifetime
care and final expenses have been
paid will be distributed to his chil-
dren equally, if that is Andy's wish-
es. The Will, of course, would require
a probate on Andy's death but Andy

would have been provided for during
his lifetime.
A much better way of handling
Andy's estate, however, would be for
Andy to create a Living Trust. He
could then place all of his assets into
the trust by transferring the title to
his assets from his individual name
into his name as Trustee of his trust.
Andy would then retain full control
of his assets while.he is competent,
or chooses to have such control, but,
upon his incapacity the successor
trustee that he names in the trust
(this may be one or more of his chil-
dren) takes over control of Andy's
assets, pays his bills and keeps a re-
cord of receipts and disbursements.
The trust will do the following things
for Andy and his children:
Significantly avoid probate costs
and provide for immediate distribu-
tion of all assets on Andy's death.
Avoid the necessity of a guardian-
ship if Andy is incapacitated.
Provide money management during
Andy's lifetime if Andy is unable to
manage his own finances.

RUSH'S(Reality

A satirical look at the world-around us,

Dentist Dearest


By Anne Rush


abies have 20 teeth. Adults
have 32 (including wisdom
teeth which is a misnomer for
anyone who's ever had theirs pulled).
Baby teeth tend to fall out seem-
ingly effortlessly. They become loose.
The kid wiggles and works it with
their tongue. During.this phase the
child gives the Tooth Fairy whom
they intuitively seem to believe is
their parents even when they still
believe in Santa Claus a heads up.
When I was a kid, I'd get a quarter
under my pillow and was grateful
for it. I understand inflation and so
forth, but in the course of five years,
my daughter's expectations went
from paper money to an iPod. Hmm.
I mention this now because I'm
personally in dental. distress. I'm
sure I have an abscess and an ex-
posed nerve. I know this not be-
cause I went to dental school for
years, but because it hurts like hell.
I suspect miy dentist will not accept
an iPod in return for eliminating
my pain. He drives a Mercedes with
Bose speakers and satellite radio.
Instead, he'll try to persuade me to
"save" the tooth. This will require a
root canal, a crown and depending on
the location, quite possibly a bridge.
A canal, crown and bridge? I'm think-
ing he's gonna send me to Venice for a
gondola ride and then my tooth won't
hurt anymore! But I was vrong.
He sent me to talk to his business
money person with the pearly whites
at the front desk quotes me $1,000.
Up front. I give her an expired dental
insurance card just for the fun of it.
I remember when my husband and
I reviewed the dental insurance plan.
They give you columns comparing the
cost of PPO, HMO, Family, Individual,
procedures, etc. Best I could ever figure
out was that most of them would pay
for an annual exam and x-rays. Most
would pay for at least one cleaning.
The problem with. the initial exam
and x-rays is that they give you a
$100,000 estimate for work that
would make you look like Julia Rob-
erts. I like most of Julia's work and
she's got a great smile, but if I'm
Gabber May 17 May 23, 2007


gonna spend 100 grand, I'd rather go
for, I don't know, a college education
for my kids or something like that.
Near as I could tell, after you make
your co-pay, it seems the insur-
ance will pay 80% or 60% or 20%
of any given procedure performed
on particular days and times of the
week relative to the'Dow stock ex-
change, the price of gas and who got
booted off American Idol that week.
And I found out the hard way that if
you've ever, in'your life, had a dental
exam. with x-rays, that everything in
your mouth that's going on 40 some
years later is considered a pre-existing
condition and therefore, not covered.
Don't even get me started on the
perky hygienist. She is the devil in-
carnate. She only works part time,
like two hours a week. The sched-
uling lady tells me that if I want to
see the High Princess Hygienest,
that she's booking appointments
six months out. She's in demand.
"Why?" I wonder. Why would
anyone pay someone mon-
ey to hurt and lecture them?
She begins my commenting "Oh,
I see you drink coffee! And smoke!"


Then she purposefully hurts me
by scraping my gums until they're
bleeding and throbbing, spraying
water in my face, all the while cluck-
ing her tongue because I've let my
mouth get so bad, and then telling me
when I can rinse: Why do I feel like
I have to ask if I can rinse? My kids
have never asked me if they can spit!
So, in the end, I will opt to have it
pulled. When you're an adult, teeth
don't fall out effortlessly. They require
medical attention.. And novacaine.
:In the meantime; I've just taken a
left over antibiotic (yes, we all have
them), an anti-inflammatory, an anti-
depressant just for the hell of it, a
prescription strength ibuprofen, a
sleeping pill and have spread Night
Time Baby Orajel all over my mouth.
And as I'm trying to get to sleep, I
worry about my kids. The closest
they come to eating an apple is sug-
ar coated Apple Jacks cereal. I won-
der if chewing gum causes gum dis-
ease. Why did anyone make a candy
called a Jaw Breaker, and further-
more, why did anyone buy them? I
finally drift off to sleep with visions
of Polident dancing in my head.

Remember
Armed Forces Day
Dear Editor: On Saturday, May
19th, it will be Armed Forces Day. In
1944, 16,535,000 Americans were in
uniform. That was World War II and
16,129,000 survived. As of September
6, 2006, 3,064,236 were still alive. Ac-
cording to the U.S. Dept. of Veterans'
Affairs, 1,100 are dying every day,
about 400,000 each year. It is sad but
true, the World war II veterans will
soon be gone. We must recognize them
while they are still here. If your neigh-
bor is 79 or older, he or she is probably
a World War II veterans.
World War I (1917-1918) 4,744,000
fought in that war, supposedly the war
to end all wars. 116,000 were killed. As
of July 1, 1998, 4,800 were still living.
But it's now 2007 and at the last count
that number is down to eight.
The Korean Conflict (1950-1955),
"The Forgotten War" 6,807,000 were
there. 55,000 gave their lives in an ef-
fort to stop the spread of communism.
In July 1955, the Korean War Memo-
rial was dedicated in Washington, D.C.
Inscribed on the granite slab is "Our
Nation Honors Her Sons and Daugh-
ters Who Answered the Call to Defend
a Country They Never Knew and a
People They Never Met" 1950-Korea-
1953.
The Vietnam Era (1964-1975)
9,200,000 with 109,000 dead. The Gulf
war 3,800,000 and 9,000 dead. We now
have Afghanistan and Iraq. Yes, we are
at war. In Iraq the toll for young men
killed is up over 3,200. We offer only
our prayers and hope they will soon re-
turn home.
We owe a lot to the Armed Forces, past
and present. God bless America.

Reminiscing of a
Long-Ago Clam Bayou
DearEditor: It was nottoo manyyears
ago that I used to go fishing around
Boca Ciega Bay and, as I returned, the
pelicans were waiting for my boat and
escorted me down the channel to my
dock at 2900 45th St. So. After tying
up the boat, I proceeded to clean my
catch at the cleaning table which faces
the bayou. It was not unusual to have
25-30 pelicans bunched around me on
the ground begging for tidbits (and oc-
casionally nipping my butt, if I was not
fast enough). To the rear of the pelicans


were the great white egrets, 10 or more.
A group of great blue herons disdain-
fully watched, but were not too proud
to snatch a meal. Off to the side, six or
seven wood storks with their clacking
beaks and then the little cattle egrets
who Were afraid of their own shadows,
but would dart in and scarf up a morsel
when they thought it was safe. to add
to the confusion the sea gulls would
be swooping and crying out and trying
to steal pieces from the pelicans, this
sometimes resulted in pitched battles
that the pelicans usually won.
this was the highlight of any visits
from my family. the children would, at
first, be reluctant to touch the slimy,
fishy remains, but they soon got over
that and had a ball tossing pieces of
fish to the zoo rookery of birds that in-
habited our bayou. Their memories of
that will remain with them all of their
lives.
Sadly, that is all they will have. Despite
glowing reports of official bird watch-
ers, our bird population has dropped to
near zero. this is from a resident who
lives on the bayou. Gone are the skim-
mers, oystercatchers and grebes. Now
there are only a few night herons and
occasional sea gulls. Where once the
mangroves in the evening would look
like snow had fallen on them because
of the roosting white birds, with an oc-
casional flash of pink from the roseate
spoonbill, there is now a blahk slate of
green resting on a grotesque mud flat.
Our political leaders have been en-
trusted with the stewardship of our
environment. They are failing in their
responsibilities. Our council member
of Ward 2 has shown a clear antipathy
toward any water preservation or im-
provement issues and, instead of rep-
resenting all of her constituents, shows
favoritism to the select circle that is in
opposition to any water issues.

Re: I Had A Dream
(The following letters were written
to Cathy Salustri in response to her
article "I Had A Dream-A Tale Of One
City", Part 3, which ran in the May 10-
May 26, 2007 issue of the Gabber).
Dear Cathy: Wow! One of the best
pieces you have ever written! It struck
a note with me as I have had the same
feelings since the kid with a gun came
in years ago.
My LA daughter pointed out that now
I have "street smarts", a good thing I


suppose, except I didn't really want
any! I try to be a kind and good person
and I'm surprised at the anger fostered
by the outrageous stupidity of these
young people with the empty eyes.
This is a good time to come back home
to Gulfport.
Jan Dutton

Dear Cathy: I think you're confus-
ing poverty with skin color. You live
in a poor, crime-ridden neighborhood;
blacks are predominately poor, the
ones in your neighborhood have prob-
ably never lived any other way and will
probably never have the chance to do
so (or don't even know how to), the cops
aren't trying to make things better, and
neither are you with your attitude. Had
you lived in Town n' Country and had
the same problems, you'd call yourself
a racist and blame the Latinos.
We live in a society where minorities
aren't afforded the same opportunities
as white Anglo Saxons. You even men-
tion in your article how your skin color
gives you an advantage, though you
don't seem to recognize the fact that
blacks (and minorities in general) are
disadvantaged for the same reason.
I know you feel justified and it's nice
you can be honest, but your arguments
just seem like excuses to me and are
(in my opinion) just the symptom of a
greater societal problem: our need to
use our experiences as the foundation
for the broad generalizations we make
about other races. In sum, your article
feeds into the neverending cycle of rac-
ism. And it's sad (and apparently a sign
of the times) that a news publication
actually picked up your story.

First, it was hurricanes, swirling
bodies of meteorological devastation
wildly crisscrossing the state like
runaway bumper cars at the Flori-
da State Fair. Then it was the para-
sitic insurance companies, sucking
homeowners dry and then throw-
ing them overboard in the storm.
Next were the maverick property
appraisers and greedy city govern-
ments, reaching into citizens' bank
accounts and grabbing for the nest
egg. How much more can the be-
leaguered residents of the Florida
Gulf Coast take?
The ain't seen nothing' yet!
Not even the ineffectual state leg-
islature can come riding to their
rescue when bodies start floating
to the surface in the most unlikely

Gulfport? Who's doing this? Where
are the police? Will anyone ever be
able to leave their over-evaluated,
under-insured home and feel safe
again?

St. Petersburg
Keeps Postmark
St. Petersburg Mayor Rick Baker
announced today that a resolution
has been met in the year-long de-
bate on the elimination of the St. Pe-
tersburg postmark and consolidate a
portion of operations in the city.
On June 14, 2006, the city was
notified by the United States Postal
Service of the intent to eliminate
the St. Petersburg postmark and to
move a portion of the St. Petersburg
processing and distribution center
(located at 1st Ave. and 31st Street)
operations to the Tampa facility.. To
address concerns related to this an-
nouncement, a public meeting was
attended by 150+ individuals who
expressed concerns over job loss,
service level reduction and the loss
of the St. Petersburg's identity on
the postmark. These concerns were
further pursued by Mayor Baker
along with Congressman C.W. "Bill"
Young's office and other local lead-
ers. The collective effort resulted in
a deferral of the decision.
Last week, Mayor Baker and rep-
resentatives of Congressman Young
and Congresswoman Castor's offices
met with the newly assigned Sun-
coast District Manager Tim Healy to
address the local postmark, service
levels and jobs. In a letter sent to
Mayor Baker yesterday, Mr. Healy
responded to Mayor Baker's requests
and addressed those three items:
1) Postmark A dual postmark
has been designated by the United
States Postal Service which will list
both Tampa and Saint Petersburg
on first-class mail. In addition, a
designated collection box will be
provided at the St. Petersburg Main
Post Office for customers desiring a
St. Petersburg postmark; 2) Service
- Service levels in St. Petersburg
will not be impacted by the consoli-
dation of operations to the Tampa
Processing & Distribution Center; 3)
Positions There will be no layoff of
career employees as a result of the
consolidation.
"I am appreciative of the United
States Postal Service's willingness
to work with St. Petersburg on this
issue," said Mayor Rick Baker. "Our
concerns first and foremost were
on the impact to our citizens and
the employees of the St. Petersburg

Gabber May 17 May 23, 2007


center. With this resolution, we are
assured that service levels will re-
main the same and jobs will not be
lost. Additionally, with the new dual
postmark, the Saint Petersburg
name will now be listed on 1 million
pieces of first class mail per day, as
opposed to 300,000 per day for St.
Petersburg only."
"The St. Petersburg Area Mail
Processing plan was developed to
improve the efficiency and effective-
ness of postal operations in the Tam-
pa Bay Area while assuring quality
service. We appreciated the com-
ments made by local citizens and the
Mayor's office at last year's public
meeting and will continue to work
together to ensure quality service
for all of our customers", said Timo-
thy Healy, USPS Suncoast District
Manager.

Water-Wise Awards
Entries for the 2007 Community
Water-Wise Awards are now being ac-
cepted at www.TampaBayWaterWise.
corn The awards will be presented
to individual and businesses whose
landscapes exhibit the best in design
and use of water-conserving features.
Water-Wise landscaping is important
given the current regional drought as
it helps reduce the need for irrigation
and helps conserve water.
Entries are judged on multiple cri-
teria. Positive factors include the use
of drought-tolerant plants and trees,
plants that are appropriate for site
conditions, the inclusion of elements
to prevent storm water runoff, ef-
ficient use of irrigation and overall
aesthetic appeal. Landscapes that in-
clude such water-wise features help
reduce the amount of water used for
irrigation and protect the fragile Flor-
ida environment by minimizing the
use of potentially harmful chemicals
like pesticides and fertilizers.
The deadline for entries is 5 p.m. on
Thursday, May 31st. The following
categories are eligible for an award:
Residents/Homeoiners, Multi-Fam-
ily Properties, Commercial Proper-
ties, Government Properties, Builders
(new homes), Schools and Other.

Golf Classic to
Benefit The First Tee
PGA putter designer and local golf-
er Bobby Grace will tee off for charity
in The Bobby Grace Classic to Ben-
efit The First Tee of St. Petersburg
(TFTSP), at 1 p.m., Saturday, May
19, at the St. Petersburg Country
Club, 2000 Country Club Way S.
The event, which is the first major
fund-raiser for TFTSP, will feature
an 18-hole scramble, buffet lunch,
prizes and a raffle. Bobby Grace will
be on hand to assist players, auto-
graph putters and pose for photos.
One hundred percent of the proceeds
will benefit The First Tee of St. Pe-
tersburg.
The First Tee of St. Petersburg ju-
nior golf program became an official
chapter of The First Tee national ju-
nior golf organization in April, 2005.
Approximately 1,000 St. Petersburg
children participate annually through
on-course and community outreach
programs. -Of those served, between

golf. The goal of TFTSP is to posi-
tively impact St. Petersburg youth

which teaches the life-long values
of honesty, integrity, perseverance,
courtesy, judgment, responsibility,
sportsmanship, confidence, and re-
spect. It is the belief of The First Tee
of St. Petersburg that today's young
golfers will be tomorrow's leaders.

Stetson Graduates
By Morgan Landis
Stetson Law School graduated a re-
cord-breaking class of 250 law students
to a packed house on Saturday May 12th
Originally the graduation was to be in the
college courtyard, but moved the night be-
fore to the Pasadena Community Church
because of brushfire smoke. The law stu-
dents were led by bagpipes through the ..,
standing room only crowd to their seats,
and endured a 2 hour long ceremony be-
fore finally getting their degree. "
"It seemed not long ago we were rushing
to our first exam, with a five page outline
in our hand, wringing our hands and wish-
ing we had more time to study. Three years As the graduates clap for another
later, I can say not much has changed," speaker, Harley Look is just happy it's
the Calvin A. Kruenzel Student Bar Asso- almost over.
ciation President Tracy Lyn Sticco mused
in her speech during the opening ceremonies. She was one of four speakers to
give salutation to the students.
William N. LaForge, the National President of the Federal Bar Association,
received an Honorary Doctor of Laws Degree before addressing the students.
He spoke of the differences between practicing in the public arena or in pri-
vate practice, and how the law degree isn't necessarily about knowing the
law, but about knowing how to use the facts and logic to solve problems.
"Be proud and secure in your chosen profession. People have a love/hate re-
lationship with lawyers, so you must be happy with what you do," LaForge
commented during his 'Top Ten Tips' for the graduating students.
Josh Welsh was named first in the class with 21 year old prodigy Casey Reed-
er in third. After everyone walked across the stage, the graduates received a
standing ovation and were greeted to hundreds of family and friends waiting
outside.






U'I


CONSERVING C
QUESTION: I plan to stay in my
next home for 5 years or less.
Would you recommend a fixed loan
or an adjustable mortgage?
ANSWER: In your case, the adjust-
able mortgage is probably the way to
go. Especially if the spread between the
adjustable and fixed mortgages is at
least two percentage points.
Generally, ARMS have a one or
three-year starting rate which is usually
lower than the fixed mortgage rate.
After this interval, the rate is adjusted
periodically to keep in line with
5201 Gulfport Boulevard, Gulfport, FL 33


ASH -April Caldwell &
Poul Hornsleth
prevailing mortgage interest rates. The
ARM is ideal for first-time buyers
who want to conserve cash during
those early years of home ownership.
If there is anything we can do for you in
buying or selling real estate, please give
us a call. We're here to help! Thank you.

sites utilize amplification equip-
ment that must connect to a sound

the management that will automati-
cally limit sound decibels to levels
permitted by City codes. Currently
Gulfport codes -state that noise lev-
els not exceed 65 decibels.
While the vote was unanimous to
grant the permits to both establish-
ments CRA member Michele King
said she thought the council should
revisit the permitted noise levels.
"Certainly I can understand res-
taurants need to have outside en-
tertainment, especially because
of smoking regulations restricting
smoking inside, but residents have a
right to a certain quality of life too,"
said King.
King was responding tp two resi-
dents, Joan Samuel and Frank Zaic
who live close to the establishments
and have complained about noise
levels from these and other down-
town establishments.

USF Presentation Stirs Debate


By Greg Stemm

Gulfport Mayor Michael
Yakes tried to make it clear
from the outset to a packed
council chamber on Tuesday
evening that representatives
from the University of South
Florida (USF) College of Ma-
rine Science were going to
make a presentation to coun-
cil Tuesday night to answer
questions which arose from a
vote on April 3 against a pro-
posed relationship between
the City and the University
to monitor water quality in
Clam Bayou and near Gulf-
port's shoreline. He warned
citizens that the public ses-
sion to follow was not the
appropriate forum to argue
for or against revisiting the
April 3 vote. It didn't turn
out quite that way, however.
Three representatives from
USF did make their case
with a power point presen-
tation and actual samples
of both the proposed floating
buoy sensors and the smaller
sensors they would like to af-
fix to stationary sites such as
pilings at Williams Pier.
David Hollander, associate
professor from the College
of Marine Science lead the
presentation, accompanied
by Hope Botterbusch, coordi-
nator or research programs/
services and Jim Wilson, a
representation of the Uni-
versity's ecosystem technol-
ogy group.
The original proposal had
asked the City to provide
space within the Coast
Guard Auxiliary build-
ing located at 3120 Miriam
Street South on Osgood
Point to conduct water qual-
ity research in Clam Bayou,
Boca Ciega Bay and extend-
ing to the area of the City's
municipal pier and Casino
Dock. Additionally, the City
would have provided in-kind
services such as utilities,
Wi-Fi connectivity, facility
maintenance, services of the
Harbormaster and vessel as


needed, rental of the existing
antennae site at' the Marina
and administration of the
agreement. No cash expen-
ditures were proposed from
the City and Coast Guard
Auxiliary Flotilla 7-16 which
currently utilizes the facility
supported the partnership.
USF representatives did
not attend the April 3 meet-
ing and, following extensive
public input expressing a va-
riety of concerns which could
not be adequately addressed
without their representation,
council voted 3-1 against the
proposal. Council member
Michele King cast the lone
vote in favor of the project.
Vice mayor Ted Phillips was
not present at that meeting.
On Tuesday, Hollander
presented the USF proposal
in detail and then answered
questions from Council.
"The project's objectives
would be to monitor physi-
cal, chemical, biological and
optical parameters in the
identified waters. It would
give you a wealth of real time
information and provide con-
stant monitoring of all borts
of water quality issues,"
said Hollander. He went
on to outline how the project
would give council scientific
data when discussing water
quality issues with St. Pe-
tersburg over Clam Bayou.
He told the group about a
seahorse nursery located
near the shoreline where
cameras would be placed
and there would be internet
access to anyone who would
like to see them. Botter-
busch explained some of the
educational components.
Council member Bob
Worthington expressed con-
cerns about the proposed
$50,000 in in-kind services
that USF was seeking from
the City to assist them with
a grant proposal for the proj-.
ect. "At a time of a budget
crisis I don't think I could
support anything that would
cost Gulfport anything ad-


ditional at this time," he
noted.
City manager Tom Brobeil
explained that the $50,000
was a value placed on the
space which the University
was requesting and that the
original proposal on April 3
did not include any actual
cash outlays from the City.
Hollander echoed that state-
ment.
Vice mayor Ted Phillips
said he didn't understand
the -need for water qual-
ity monitoring at this time.
"Maybe in two years when
our efforts to try and clean
up the Bayou are starting to
work we should monitor it,
right now we already know
it's bad. I just don't see the
point in monitoring a rap-
idly deteriorating situation."
Hollander pointed out that
hard scientific evidence com-
ing from constant real time
water quality monitoring
would give the City concrete
evidence that storm water,
residue and trash runoff
from St. Petersburg was con-
tributing to the decline in
Clam Bayou's quality.
The mayor said he had
checked into concerns that
USF might limit access to
the Osgood point facility
where the computers which
would be collected the data
from the sensor buoys would
be located. "I don't think the
grant we have for that area's
restoration would allow us
to limit public access in any
way," he said. "The building
would still be city property
and we would set the terms
of its use." Hollander told
council that the university
only needed a'Small area of
the building and the only
request they would make
would be;that .|he building
be locked. It was noted that
there is already a lock on the
building with the City and
the Coast Guard each hav-
ing a key. t
King maintained her
support of the project and
suggested council consider
asking the city attorney to


draft a new outline of a re-
lationship which addressed
the concerns which had been
addressed. Council did not
reach 'consensus on that,
opting rather to consider the
material presented on Tues-
day and address the issue at
a later date.
When public session began
immediately following the
presentation the audience
virtually ignored the may-
or's earlier statement and
what followed was an hour
and a half of various indi-
viduals presenting opinions
both pro and con about the
presentation, new questions
it raised and whether coun-
cil should readdress the pro-
posal. Some urged council
members to vote no or yes,
despite Yakes reminding the
audience several times that
a vote was not scheduled.
Finally, a clearly exasperat-
ed Yakes interjected that he
had been respectful because
there was a full chamber of
citizens wishing to express
their opinions, but "this ob-
viously isn't the appropriate
venue for this because the
USF people have made their
presentation to us and are
gone now. We are back at
square one where there are
questions being ask and the
USF representatives aren't
here to answer them."
"Clearly there is a reason-
able interest to have more
information about this and
I'm pretty sure this will be
brought up again," the mayor
said to the Gabber following
the meeting. "It is something
that will need to brought up
by a council member. I think
that the consensus of the
council was that they needed
more time to consider the in-
formation presented by USF
and the opinions of the citi-
zens." Asked about a time-
table, Yakes said, "We have
a lot of complicated issues to
address including the bud-
get. I doubt it will be before
August."

PRAYER TO THE BLESSED VIRGIN 0
most beautiful flower of Mount Carmel, fruit-
ful vine, splendor of heaven. Blessed Mother
of the Son of God, Immaculate Virgin, assist
me in my necessity. O star of the sea, hel
me and show me here you are my mother. O
Holy Mary, Mother of God, Queen of Heaven
and Earth, I humbly beseech you from the
bottom of my heart to succor me in necessity
(make request). There are none that can with-
stand your power. O Mary, conceived without
sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee. (3
times.) Holy Mary, I place this cause in your
hands. (3 times.) Say this prayer for 3 consec-
utive days and then you must publish it and it
will be granted to you. Greatful thanks to all
prayers answered. D.M.K.
