Attempted Murderer
Sentenced 15 Years
May 10. Charles E. Russell accepted a
plea deal from the State Attorney's Office
of 15 years of jail time.
Russell faced charges of two counts of at-
tempted first-degree murder in an April
13, 2005 shooting at Buddy's Bar (2321
49th Street Southl. That incident began as
a verbal altercation between two subjects
at the bar. A judge found Russell guilty of
attempting to flee the state and possibly
the country, which resulted in five years
in jail. Russell will serve those fve years
concurrently.

Gulfport Businesses Attend
Crime Watch Meeting
By Cathy Salustri
The four businesses attending a recent Crime Aware-
ness Business meeting left the meeting with one promise:
Gulfport police would look into passing a monthly busi-
ness crime report to local businesses.
Sergeant Joshua Stone said he would explore the pos-
sibility of including photos with the crime reports. The
idea of the monthly crime reports evolved from Stone's
suggestion that businesses should call each other when
they know of a crime.
See Crime Watch, page 3
"St. Petersburg won't do anything; we've been in meetings with the
Mayor, with Go Davis, and nothing happens." said Mark Gildaus-
kas' (left) in response to issues on 49th Street.

"Business owners need to network,"
Sergeant Joshua Stone suggested,
giving an example of a recent at-
tempt to pass off a counterfeit $100
at a local gas station. Stone suggest-
ed that businesses should call each
other in such instances.
"People don't have time to pick up
the phone and call other businesses,"

ident Lori Roso Panhandl
said. She offered Gulfport police

"The Chamber is ask for money

ods," Rosso said,
but added that the Chamber does not
have a lot of 49th Street members.
Of the four businesses attending the
meeting- Fazio's, Seabreeze Manor,
2iView, and The Gabber- two operate
from 49th Street South.
"Don't believe for a minute that
they're not concerned," Reichart
said to Crime Awareness, "They're
just different than the businesses
on Beach Boulevard. If you've got
a guy whose a mechanic and knee
deep in grease- he's not gonna stop
and talk to you. It's a whole differ-
ent ball game. How would they have
known about the meeting? They're
not typically Gabber readers, so un-
less somebody went and knocked on
their door or sent them an invitation,
they won't know."
Reichart went on to praise recent
efforts on 49th Street.
"For many years there wasn't a
lot of apparent police presence. The
perception of the public- and my per-
ception sitting in my office- is that
there isn't a lot of police presence,"
Reichart said. He added that he has
seen that change over the past two
months, and "I thank you for that."
Mark Gildauskas, owner of 2iView,
said that many of the problems
around his business stemmed from
loitering and issues on the St. Pe-
tersburg side of.'49th Street.

under the 'No Loitering' signs," Gild-
uskas complained.
"St. Petersburg won't do anything;
we've been in meetings with the
Mayor, with Go Davis, and nothing
happens." Gildauskas suggested that
perhaps the County Sheriff could
help mitigate the situation.
Stone said that wouldn't work.
"They have more pressing things to
do than noise violations. There's a
hierarchy," he explained, and added
that Gulfport of-

with Deputy May-
or Goliath Davis,
Luke Williams,
and other St. Petersburg officials,
they had seen a positive difference,
although Gildauskas disagreed.
As for noise monitoring equipment,
Stone said 'That's a huge expense
for something that is not a violent


crime."
"This invisible line right here is
stopping it all," Gildauskas said of
the city limits.
After the meeting some people ex-
pressed displeasure at the lack of
action taken to help the businesses.
Lieutenant Rob Vincent responded
to the citizen comment.
"There are some entities that want
to see this be much stronger and
much better organized. People think
the police department is not doing
what it could or should, but that's
not what it is. The group is run by
citizens and we show up at their re-
quest when they want us to. We have
tried to recruit people to coordinate
and run it as volunteers and Ernie
is the only one who has stepped up.
It needs to be a citizen thing. This
kind of thing can't be run by a police
department," Vincent explained..
"If somebody wants to change some-
thing about the way the crime watch
is run, the first thing they need to
do is work with current leadership.
If they can't, then they need to come
see me or call me," Vincent said. He

Amvets Post 8
By Johnny Miller
Our Memorial Day service started at
10 a.m. with a flag ceremony attended
by many of our veterans and officers. I

gion 273 Honor Guard for performing
the flag ceremony. They did a beauti-
ful job and the 21 gun salute was ex-
cellent. We had music from 11 a.m. to
6 p.m. and also honored one of our
own members Claude Blondi, who
just happens to be a Pearl Harbor sur-
vivor. Our Sons of Amvets cooked ribs
outside on the grill and everyone had
a great day at Post 8. Call 544-6810

Our Blood Drive is on June 16th from

someone's life. I myself live in Gulf-
port and would like to thank the Gab-
ber for its public services. Helping to
keep the public informed means a lot
to all of our organizations.
At our joint meeting on June 17th at

ing together for our coming year. I am
looking forward to it myself.

Treasure Island's Fun in the Sun


By Morgan Landis
Treasure Island celebrated Memorial weekend
with its Sun, Sand and Symphony. The event was
held on the beach at the comer of 104t Ave and Gulf
Boulevard during Friday evening and through the
day Saturday. The Tampa Bay Symphony capped off
the event Saturday followed by fireworks.
Sophia Lilli, and her grandparents Debbie and
Anthony Vicidomime from Long Island, New York,
joined hundreds of music fans Saturday evening.
Among the beach towels, coolers and food tents was
a sand sculpture dedicated to the Florida Gators for
their back-to-back championships. When Sophia
was asked what her favorite part of the weekend, she
yelled, 'The alligator!"

Photo courtesy of Hank Marois
The sand-sculpture was created by Treasure Island
residents Dan Doubleday and Meredith Corston as a
tribute to the Florida Gator championships.

Property Tax Reform
Town Hall Meetings
The City of St. Pete Beach and its
residents have closely monitored the
property tax reform debate in Tal-
lahassee. Over the next two weeks,
Representative Janet C. Long (Dis-
trict 51-Seminole) and her colleagues
will hold town hall meetings to seek
your input on proposed tax reforms.
These meetings are in preparation for
the Special Session on Property Tax
Reform scheduled to begin on June
12th.
The citizens of St. Pete Beach are
highly encouraged to attend the up-
coming meetings. Some of the propos-
als being considered will have con-
siderable impact on the service levels
of our Police, Fire, Public Works and
Leisure Services Departments. The
decisions that will be made in the up-
coming weeks have the potential to
drastically change the way local gov-
ernment operates if current proposals
are adopted. These are very serious
issues that will be debated and voted
on during the upcoming Special Ses-
sion. This is an opportunity for St.
Pete Beach residents to speak directly
with the legislators who will be voting
on the important issue on Thursday,
May 31st from 5-8 p.m. at the Pinellas
Realtor Organization, 4590 Ulmerton
Road.

The Alligator is coming...
For generations of Americans, the death of John Kennedy is an indelible
memory the shock of it, the suddenness, the four days of national and world
mourning, the state funeral, the riderless horse, the beautiful and dignified
widow, the salute of a little boy. They'll never forget. And most of all, they
remember where they were and what they were doing when they heard five
words: the president has been shot.
The current generation of Gulfportians is in for a similar shock, very different
but just as portentous. But this time, the shock will give way to fear, and the
fear will give way to terror. And the shock and fear and terror can be traced
back to two words: The Alligator.
Or worse: The Alligator has struck. Or worse still: The Alligator has struck
again. From Roger Turner, The Alligator is coming ... next week:

June 16th in the Tim Salen Gallery.
Liz combines sea-life, root and rock-
like forms with full figures and frag-
ments in clay. She then finishes the
surface with collaged and painted
imagery. "Through mixed media I
layer materials and images to illus-
trate our complex psychological and
spiritual journeys," says the artist.
"Struggle forms and challenges the
self. We are filled with indetermin-
able strength and yet, vulnerabil-
ity."
Along with the show the artist will
be leading a demonstration work-
shop, "Large-Scale Figurative Sculp-
ture," June 2nd and 3rd. Using life-
size figures built in various stages,
she will illustrate the progression of
form, and how to identify and solve
the weight stresses of large-scale
clay sculpture. "Liz's work is real-
istic and beautifully detailed," says
Jonathan Hawkins, general man-
ager at the St.Petersburg Clay Com-
pany. "She builds her pieces hollow
with no interior armature. Each
sculpture may take over 200 hours.
This is a rare opportunity to witness
how a full figure is constructed from
start to finish."
The public is invited to the opening
reception of "Fragments of Memory"
June 1st from 7 to 9 p.m. Free drinks
and an array of different appetiz-
ers will be served during the event
including a Bryant family favorite,
brandied apple omelets flambe!
The St. Petersburg Clay Company
represents over fifty artists and fea-
tures their handmade pottery and
sculpture throughouthe year in the
member gallery. The studios and
galleries are housed in the historic
Seaboard Train Station at 420 22nd
Ave. So in St. Petersburg, Florida.

Why Buy-Sell Agreements
are Important
(Part II)
Entity and Cross Purchase
Agreements
The entity-purchase agreements is
a contract within the company, not
one among the partners or their fam-
ilies. In the case of XYZ, Ms. Smith
and Mr. Gonzales would enter into a
binding agreement with XYZ for the
purchase and sale of their respective
interests. Upon death, disability, re-
tirement or resignation, Ms. Smith
and Mr. Gonzales are obligated to
sell their stock to XYZ and XYZ is
obligated to buy that stock.
To fund this agreement, XYZ can


obtain life insurance contracts on
both Ms. Smith and Mr. Gonzales.
XYZ pays the premiums and is the
owner and beneficiary of the poli-
cies. When Mr. Gonzales dies, his
stock passes to his estate. At the
same time, the insurance company
pays a death benefit to XYZ as ben-
eficiary of the policy.
Pursuant to the entity-purchase
agreement that Ms. Smith and Mr.
Gonzales entered into with XYZ, Mr.
Gonzales' estate will transfer his en-
tire interest in XYZ back to XYZ in
return for the cash payout on Mr.
Gonzales insurance policy. The en-,
tity-purchase agreement allows the
value of the stock for estate tax pur-
poses to be determined and gives the
Gonzales family the liquidity they
need.
Entity-purchase agreements do
have some disadvantages. There will
often be a build up of the value in
the life insurance policy which may,
along with the policy death benefits,

be subject to the claims of corpo-
rate creditors and susceptible to
alternative minimum tax.
In a cross-purchase agreement
arrangement, XYZ is not a party
to the agreement. Instead, Ms.
Smith obtains a life insurance
policy insuring Mr. Gonzales. Ms.
Smith pays the premiums and is
both owner and beneficiary of the
policy. Mr. Gonzales does likewise.
Under the terms of the cross-pur-
chase agreement, each agrees to
buy the other's stock in the event
of death using the proceeds of the
life insurance policy.
When Mr. Gonzales dies, the in-
surance company pays the death
benefits to Ms. Smith that she
uses to buy back Mr. Gonzales' in-
terest in XYZ from Mr. Gonzales'
estate. Again, the Gonzales fam-
ily gets the liquidity they need to
settle his estate.
A cross-purchase agreement car-
ries with it several advantages.
First, it insulates cash values and
death benefits from the imposition
of corporate alternative minimum
tax and corporate creditors. Sec-
ond, it provides a step-up in cost
basis for the surviving sharehold-
er and the decedent. These are sig-
nificant benefits when the surviv-
ing shareholder intends to sell the
business following the death of the
other partner.
One clear disadvantage of cross-
purchase agreements occurs if the
partners who are entering into the
agreement are of different ages
because the younger partner will
pay more to insure the older part-
ner.

Letters


Re: I Had A Dream
(The following letter was written to
Cathy Salustri in response to her ar-
ticle "I Had A Dream-A Tale Of One
City", Part 3, which ran in the May
10-May 26, 2007 issue of the Gab-
ber).
Dear Cathy: No Need to think of
yourself as a racist. You're simply
protesting (to say the least) behavior.
In your environment, where the bad
behavior is 100% from blacks, why
wouldn't color be an aspect? Outside
of the neighborhood, there would be a
different perspective.
Consider the Mafia. By label it was
(and is) Italian. Mob crime in the
neighborhood or outside of it was
committed by Italians. And, yes, Ital-
ians complained about so-called slurs
against their nationality. Is "The So-
pranos" racist? At the same time, I
don't doubt that the criminals are
indiscriminate in their crime. Blacks
and Italians are victims, too.
However, you raised another good
issue and that is about government


services. There's no excuse for the
city's neglect of garbage and trash
pick-up, clean streets, elimination
of dilapidated buildings and forced
clean up of vacant lots.
Good work...and don't pay attention
to excuses about lack of opportunity,
etc. That's a group feeding on the
dead carcass of past wrongs instead
of feeding on the fresh meat of re-
sponsibility and opportunity.

Preserve the Public Input
Dear Editor: Gulfport has
always prided itself on having a
participatory democratic process in
its local government. Unfortunately,
as Gulfport residents who often
attend City Council meetings, we
are growing increasingly concerned
about the health of this process. Here
are some troubling recent events.
Without formal action by other
council members, Mayor Yakes has
decided that the public comment

council meetings) should be moved
to the end of the meetings. This
move could make it less likely for
the public to speak out. Is that
the intent? Were ll other council
members consulted about this, as we
believe the City Charter requires?
At a recent council meeting, one
particular council person Ms. King
- saw fit to level a personal attack
from the podium at one of her own
constituents Mr. Al Davis who
raised issues not to her liking. In
our view, this was unprofessional
and an abuse of office. Do we want
those who speak in public session to
be subject to personal intimidation?
Mayor Yakes recently sent an
official letter, on City letterhead, to
Mr. Davis demanding information
about Gulfport Water Watch, an
informal citizens' group in which Mr.
Davis is active. The letter requested
that Mr. Davis make an appointment
with the Mayor to account for the
activities of GWW and discuss how
the situation could be "improved."
Was this intended to have a chilling
effect on public engagement with
cleaning up Clam Bayou and other
water-related issues?
We were present at a meeting in
April 2006 when Ms. King stated that
there would never be a mooring field
in Gulfport as long as she was on the
Council. We can't help but feel that
the recent antagonism to hearing
from Mr. Davis and Gulfport Water
Watch basically has its roots in her
wish to avoid public input on water-
related issues like Clam Bayou,
the mooring field, and protection of
public access to Gulfport's property
on Osgood Point and elsewhere. She
has a right to her opinion, of course.
But no one has a right to close off
public debate on these issues.
As we write this on Memorial Day,
we ask that we all remember what
so many Americans have died to
protect freedom and deniocracy,
including the U.S. Constitution's
First Amendment protections of free
speech. We need public input to City
Council. Let's not be afraid of-it, or
try to hutit dow ---

Gulfport Wise?
Have you got a question about Gulfport?
Email your request to News@theGabber.com

.Why do the Gulfport Police ask for your social security number when
you register your bicycle?

According to Gulfport Police Lieutenant Rob Vincent, since a bicycle
registrationn can serve as proof of ownership, the police simply want to
make sure "everything is legitimate before we issue a registration sticker."
That includes checking the bicycle serial number against a national data-
base of stolen property, as well as a check of the person wishing to register
the bicycle- just to make sure he doesn't have a history of dealing in stolen
property or registering lots of different bicycles.
Lieutenant Vincent assures us that having such a record would never pre-
vent a person from registering a bicycle, but it would certainly prompt a few
more questions.
One last thought- Florida law exempts social security numbers from public
records, so this information stays confidential.

RUSH'S Realit

A satirical look at the world around us.


Did you watch the presidential
debates? Me neither. It is
utterly ridiculous that we,
the people, need to be subjected to a
race as prolonged as this one.
So out of pure rebellion, the following
is a parody of the candidates based
on the opening line of a standard
joke. I apologize if your particular
candidate is not represented. Due
to space constraints and the sheer
combined number of them, I couldn't
possibly poke fun at them all. Here
goes.

A black, a woman and a Mormon
walk into a bar. The bartender asks
"Whaddullyall have?".
The black says "Smaller ears".
The woman says "Well, if we had
universal health insurance, you
could have plastic surgery for next
to nothing. Look, in this presidential
race, you're a minority, I'm a minority.
But if you truly believe that you're
gonna win on the basis of your skin
color, you're just wrong. There are a


Gotta Love an Election Years
lot of other clean African Americans
out there who are smarter than you.
Furthermore, if you think for one
minute that I'm gonna let you raise
more money than me or steal this
election away from me, than you're
out of your mind. There's a calculated
reason why I Stood By My Man. For
some, Godforsaken reason, people
love him. He's good looking, has that
charming Southern drawl, and can
raise a lot of money for me".
The Mormon says "Set me up with
a Virgin Bloody Mary and although
some people believe my religion
allows me to have several wives,
after listening to that tirade, I think
I'll keep the only wife I've ever
had".

An ambulance chaser, an actor
and a former POW walk into a bar.
The bartender asks "Whaddullyall
have?".
The ambulance chaser says to
the bartender, "I'm being accused
of talking about two Americas, but

even though I'm filthy rich right now,
I came from humble beginnings,
so I know of which I speak. I'm
young, good-looking, am told I have
a charming Southern drawl, and
my wife and I eat at Wendy's like
common folk do."
The actor agrees "I'm in the
living rooms of common folk every
week. Even though I've not even
announced my intentions yet, I'm
doing well in the polls. I'm an actor
and precedent has been set for me to
be voted into the highest office of the
land. You see, all Presidents need to
be great actors and communicators
to the people from time to time. I
have a resonant and familiar voice
and have the look of a trusted and
experienced grandfather.
The former POW says I've got
name recognition and more rear life
experience than either one of these
clowns. Give me a Margarita. It's
the official drink of my state".

A Tenneessean and a New Yorker
walk into a bar. The bartender asks
"Whaddullyall have?".
The Tennesseean orders a glass
of whine. The New Yorker orders a
Manhattan.
The Tennesseean brags about
winning a statue. The New Yorker
brags about defending one.
The Tennesseean rants about global
warming. The New Yorker rants
about global terrorism.
After some commiserating, friendly
bantering and a few puffs from a
cigar, the New Yorker asks "So what
do you think about Dodd?".
The Tennesseean replies "I thought
his name was Dudd".
-
And as the bartender empties the
ashtrays and locks the door behind
them all for the night, he wonders
"Where have all the great ones
gone?".

Take a Kid Boating Day
Jim Dillon remembers the first day
his dad took him out on a boat. One
of many memories he cherishes from
his childhood the bond boating built
between the father and son team
shaped his conscience and is even re-
flected in his profession today. Owner
of St. Petersburg's Passport Marine,
Dillon wants to help spark the same
enthusiasm and bond he recalls in the
lives of children who need homes in
his Tampa Bay community. "The best
days of my childhood were on a boat
with my father," Dillon said. "I can't
imagine being a child without a par-
ent to hold your hand on the dock at
the end of the day. I want every kid to
have that feeling, even if it is just for
a day. But, I bet that after a day to-
gether on the water, some very special
new bonds will be formed."
Sponsored by Rep. Bill Heller, D-52,
June 2, 2007 was proclaimed officially
as "Take A Kid Boating Day" by the
Florida House of Representatives and
is a statewide effort to help children
find permanent homes and enjoy the
important exposure of life on the wa-
ter.
The Foundation's official activities
will take place in Pinellas County
State Parks in Dunedin at Caladesi Is-
land and St. Petersburg on Ft. Desoto.
Each event will consist of registration
from 9-10 a.m. with a Captain's Meet-
ing held for the boat owners at 9:30
a.m. Participating children and their
guardians will register from 9:30-10
a.m. Boating families will then be
paired with participating children/
guardians. Once boarded, all partici-
pants will enjoy a fun day of boating

LENDING DEPOSIT

QUESTION: I want to lend money
to my son to help him buy a house. Are
there any tax implications I should
know about?
ANSWER: YES! Make sure that your
son can deduct the interest money he pays
you. You can do this by having an
attorney draft a mortgage agreement.
Drawing up a simple I.O.U. Will not
suffice. The reason for this is that interest
on mortgage secured by a principal
residence is fully tax deductible. Interest
on a personal loan is not.


Om CuIl n


I V W Ilki April Caldwell &
Poul Hornsleth
If you charge your son the fair market
interest rate calculated monthly by the
IRS, he will be able to deduct the interest
he pays you from his taxable income.
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.

They Walked.
By Cathy Salustri


Catherine McKillips, 33, has survived cer-
vical cancer. Almost everyone at the Relay
told us about people they loved who had
not survived cancer.


Catherine McKillips walked.
By midnight Friday night, most of (',e lu-
minaries had gone out. As music played
on the field of the Gulfrport Recreation
Center, teams supporting the Ameri-
can Cancer Society's Relay For Life
hunkered down in the tents or gathered
around makeshift tables.
By 12:30 a.m. McKillips had the make-
shift track to herself, a lone walker
making rapid circuits of the Rec Center.
As part of the City of St. Pete Beach's
team, she volunteered for a three hour
shift at the annual event.
At 26 doctors diagnosed McKillips with
cervical cancer. Seven years later she
has survived it, as have her sisters.
McKillips' family, as well as most of
the people gathered behind the Rec
Center early Saturday morning, has its
share of loved ones who have died from
every conceivable type of cancer.
Jackie Hayes didn't walk. Hayes bat-
tled ovarian cancer for 9 years before
dying in her early fifties.
"It's horrible, but cool to be a part of
something positive," Hayes' nephew,
David Girard said.
Norma Lee did not walk. She died from
breast cancer in her early 50s.
Elizabeth Sengers did not walk. She

Protect Yourself
from Summer Heat
Floridians are entering the hot-
test time of the year. With tempera-
tures, humidity and heat indexes
soaring, it's important for you to
protect yourself from heat-related
illness.
People suffer heat-related illness
when their bodies are unable to
compensate and properly cool them-
selves. The body normally cools itself
by sweating. But under some condi-
tions, sweating just isn't enough. In
such cases, a person's body tempera-
ture rises rapidly. Very high body
temperatures may damage the brain
or other vital organs.
Because heat-related deaths are
preventable, it's important to be
aware of who is at greatest risk and
what actions can be taken to prevent
a heat-related illness or death. The
elderly, the very young, and people
with mental illness and chronic dis-
eases are at highest risk. However,
even young and healthy individuals
can succumb to heat if they partici-
pate in strenuous physical activities
during hot weather. Air-condition-
ing is the number one protective
factor against heat-related illness
and death. If a home is not air-con-
ditioned, individuals can reduce
their risk for heat-related illness
by spending time in public facilities
that are air-conditioned.
To protect your health when
temperatures are extremely high,
remember to keep cool and use com-
mon sense. The Pinellas County
Health Department offers these tips
for preventing heat-related illness:
Drink more fluids (nonalcoholic),
regardless of your activity level.
Don't wait until you're thirsty to
drink. Warning: If your doctor gen-
erally limits the amount of fluid you
drink or has you on water pills, ask
him how much you should drink
while the weather is hot.
Don't drink liquids that contain
caffeine, alcohol, or large amounts
of sugar-these actually cause you
to lose more body fluid. Also, avoid
very cold drinks, because they can
cause stomach cramps.
Stay indoors and, if at all possible,
stay in an air-conditioned place. If
your home does not have air con-
ditioning, go to the shopping mall
Gabber May 31 June 6, 2007


or public library-even a few hours
spent in air conditioning can help
your body stay cooler when you go
back into the heat. Call your local
health department to see if there
are any heat-relief shelters in your
area.
Electric fans may provide comfort,
but when the temperature is in the
high 90s, fans will not prevent heat-
related illness. Taking a cool shower
or bath, or moving to an air-condi-
tioned place is a much better way to
cool off.
NEVER leave any person or pet in
a closed, parked vehicle.
Visit adults at risk at least twice a
day and closely watch them for signs
of heat exhaustion or heat stroke. In-
fants and young children, of course,
need much more frequent watching.
If you must be out in the heat:
Try to limit your outdoor activity to
morning and evening hours.
Cut down on exercise. If you must
exercise, drink two to four glasses of
cool, nonalcoholic fluids each hour.


A sports beverage can replace the
salt and minerals you lose in sweat.
Warning: If you are on a low-salt
diet, talk with your doctor before
drinking a sports beverage. Remem-
ber the warning in the first "tip"
(above), too.
Try to rest often in shady areas.
Protect yourself from the sun by
wearing a wide-brimmed hat (also
keeps you cooler) and sunglasses and
by putting on sunscreen of SPF 15 or
higher (the most effective products
say "broad spectrum" or "UVA/UVB
protection" on their labels).

Volunteers Needed
Dedicated volunteers are needed to
become part of the Ryan White Care
Council to help us plan services for
people affected with HIV/AIDS living
in our community. Call Claudia at

or to receive a membership applica-

E everyone has their favorite
holiday. Maybe yours is
Christmas, or the whole
Christmas season. For a lot of people,
it is.
Others prefer the more democratic
celebrations of the Fourth of July.
Anyone can enjoy fireworks and
parades and hot dogs in the back
yard, and you don't have to spend a
lot of money or work too hard.
And Halloween has become
enormously popular .in recent years,
with parties everywhere and people of
all ages dressing up as their favorite
monster or celebrity (or monster
celebrity?) or just about anything else
they can think up.
And, of course, there's Thanksgiving,
centered on family and food. Well and
good, all of them.
But for me, nothing quite equals
tomorrow, June 1, otherwise known
as The Beginning of the Hurricane
Season. Or even more enjoyable,
December 1, The End of the Hurricane
Season. And then there's that
extended period to celebrate, usually
from about mid-August until late
October, known as The Height of the
Hurricane Season. That one is good
for at least two solid months of fun.
And fun it should be, this year.
If you don't believe me, you may
want to run over to the hurricane
and safety seminar that the city is
putting on tonight (Thursday) at the
Hickman Theater. It'll be chock full
of information about how to protect
yourself and your home, and I'm
sure that guest meteorologist Mace
Michaels from Channel 8 will be filling
everyone in on this year's hurricane
threat.
Which is substantial. Everyone is
predicting a busy hurricane season
this year.
Yeah, I know. They predicted a
busy season last year, too, and it
didn't develop. There were only 9
Atlantic storms last year, and none
of them hit the United States. But


It's the most

wonderful time

of the year

Roger Turner
VIEWPOINT


that's because an unexpected El
Nifio (warmer than average water)
developed in the Pacific Ocean. El
Nifios affect wind patterns and
weather movements and tend to
discourage hurricanes in the Atlantic
Ocean.
But it's gone now. This year, the
forecasters are expecting neutral
or La Nifia (the opposite of El Nifio)
conditions in the Pacific, so we won't
have the protection we had last year.
The National Oceanic and
Atmospheric Administration, the
government agency that oversees
the national weather services and
forecasters, including the National
Hurricane Center in Miami, said on
May 22 that there is a 75 percent
chance that hurricane activity in
the Atlantic this year will be "above:
normal." There's a 20 percent chance
that activity will be "near normal,"
and a 5 percent chance that it will be
"below normal." Normal is 10 to 11
named storms, 6 of them hurricanes,
2 of those major hurricanes.
This year, the national forecasters
predict that -there will be 13 to 17
named tropical storms, with 7 to 10
of them becoming hurricanes-and 3 to
5 of them becoming major hurricanes.
Unfortunately, they didn't predict
where the storms would go, only
that East Coast and the Gulf Coast
residents should be prepared.
Colorado State University, the home
of William Gray, who has become well-
known in recent years for his hurricane
predictions, is also predicting a busy
year. Their preliminary report said
there will be 17 named storms this
year in the Atlantic, and that 9 of
them will become hurricanes. The
CSU group is supposed to release
their revised predictions today.
Any way you cut it, it looks like this
is going to be one busy season. And
then there was Andrea, the tropical
storm that formed several weeks ago
off the coast of South Carolina or
thereabouts. Early May! It didn't turn


out to be much, and the newspapers
said that it was not a predictor of
the coming hurricane season. It sure
looked like one to me.
But then, some people think I'm
getting paranoid about hurricanes,
and maybe I am. No, I don't think
that they're out to get me personally.
I just think that there's something
inevitable about getting hit by one
eventually.
Then there's the issue of global
warming, which we, the United
States, have not yet even formally
acknowledged as existing, as far as I
know. 'But acknowledgement or not,
water temperatures seem to be rising.
In fact, the water surface temperature
in what they call the Atlantic Main
Development Region for hurricanes
is currently 0.6 of a degree C above
normal, which translates, I think, to a
little more than one degree F.
The forecasters at Colorado State
tend to dismiss warmer water as a
factor in hurricane forecasts. But it
seems to me that, since hurricanes
feed on warm water, warmer water
has to be a factor to some extent.
Maybe it improves hurricane-forming
conditions somewhat. Maybe it helps
make them more powerful. Maybe it
keeps them alive longer. I don't know.
I just don't see how it could not be a
S factor.
' The St. Petersburg Times released
its 2007 hurricane guide a couple of
weeks ago. Maybe you have it. One
feature I. found interesting involved
Bay News 9 meteorologists writing
about hurricanes that made an
impression on them.
For me, that hurricane would be
Charley in August, 2004. It came up
across the western tip of Cuba, if I
remember correctly, and then set its
sights on the western coast of Florida.
We were in the cone of its predicted
path for a very long time forever,
it seemed. And for a while, the line
of its predicted path came right over
Pinellas County, right over Gulfport,
right over our house, it seemed. I
truly felt like the deer caught in the
headlights. It was the first, and only,
time we prepared to evacuate the
house.
But it passed us by, as has every one
since. So all we have to think about
is the next one. Get out the margarita
pitcher and let the partying begin.

Women for Sobriety
A self-help group for women with
drinking problems will be held on
Saturday at 9:45 a.m. at the Penin-
sula Inn and Spa, 2937 Beach Blvd.
in Gulfport. This group will learn and
practice the "New Life" program from
Women for Sobriety, a national self-
help program for women.
The "New Life" program teaches
women ways in which to cope with
life's problems. Women learn ways to
feel good about themselves. This pro-
gram recognizes that women alcohol-
ics' biggest need in recovery is to find
self-worth and self-esteem to over-
come the debilitating feelings of guilt.
Women for Sobriety has self-
help groups all across the coun-
try, helping women to recover
from the devastation of alcoholism.
To join this group call Joanie Clar-
kin at 347-3687. To receive the pro-
gram literature, send a self-addressed
stamped business size envelope to the
national office at WFS, Inc., POB 618,
Quakertown, PA 18951-0618.

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

Joanie Clarkin-A reverse mortgage specialist on your side.
By Shelly Wilson .- --


There are probably very few
folks reading this who haven't
yet heard about reverse mort-
gage. Still, there are many who
haven't taken advantage of it.
But why?
It may be due to misconceptions:
that the government-backed loan
will actually risk your home; that
there are high interest rates; that
it's difficult to be approved. In fact,
none of this is true.
For those who may not know, re-
verse mortgage, or home equity
conversion, is a loan against your
primary residence a house, condo
or other residence that you do not
have to pay back for as long as you
live there. With a reverse mortgage,
you can turn the value of your home
into cash without having to move or
to repay the loan each month in
fact, the low interest loan is not due
until you leave your home. The sell-
ing price of your home whether
sold by you or your estate will usu-
ally easily cover the loan, often with
equity left over.
The system, insured by the Federal
Housing Administration (FHA), and
endorsed by the AARP, is designed
to help seniors not to steal their
homes or leave them with expenses.
Of course, to some folks a reverse
mortgage always sounds too good to
be true. Well, it is good but it's also
true.
"I think it's one of the best things
the government's ever done for se-
niors," says Joanie Clarkin, a Town
Shores resident and reverse mort-
gage advisor with American Reverse
Mortgage. "If you are 62 years or
older, you've built up a lot of equity
in your home. Why not use it for
something?"
Essentially, it's tax-free cash for
seniors. Instead of paying the bank
monthly, you get a monthly check.
There are other payment options as
well, including a single lump sum or
San account which you can draw on
when and how you need it.
How many seniors out there could
use a little more financial freedom?
"I recently went out to see a couple
who couldn't afford their medica-
tions or even food," says Clarkin.
"They had taken out a regular equity
loan and they had this huge pay-


"It's so interesting going out and meeting people," says Clarkin, a Reverse
Mortgage Advisor and ten year Town Shores resident. "It makes me so happy
helping people like this. It's what I've done my whole life!"


ment. Through a reverse mortgage,
we were able to not only repay their
loan, but also secure them an extra
$1000 a month for living expenses.
Thank God we were able to go out
there and help them!"
While this case illustrates the
blessing reverse mortgage can be for
seniors on fixed-incomes, it is just as
welcome for many others. A lot of
people think that only seniors who
are in serious financial need, or those
who need help with other expenses,
take advantage of reverse mortgage.
The truth is, you don't have to repay
the loan as long as you live in your
home so why not have fun with it?
"I've had people who get a reverse
mortgage and use it to help them re-
tire comfortably," says Clarkin. "I've
seen people take the money and go
travel. They've earned that money,
so why not?"
So why aren't more seniors taking
advantage of a reverse mortgage?
Actually, they are. In the last ten
years, reverse mortgages have grown
exponentially. People are finally get-
ting the message about this win-win
system designed to help seniors.
In her 40 years in human services,
and current position in community
relations for Pinellas County Schools,
Joanie Clarkin has learned a little
something about helping people, and
Paid Advertisement-


in ten years of living at Town Shores,
she's seen what a difference reverse
mortgage can make.
"That's really what got me inter-
ested in doing this," says Clarkin.
"I'm a senior, and people our age
shouldn't have to deal with debt and
money troubles. This program is
just a great tool for seniors."
Through her company, American
Reverse Mortgage, Clarkin visits se-
niors all over the bay area.
"We come out to your home for an
educational session. Then, you meet
with a HUD counselor to make sure
that you are comfortable with the
process. It's all set up to protect the
seniors, and we take care of every-
thing."
Whether you've got a little equity,
or own your home outright, a reverse
mortgage can make a big difference
in your life.
Says Clarkin, "I look at it like part
of a retirement plan. It's a low inter-
est, no risk retirement plan. You've
worked all your life now it's time to
enjoy it!"
