City Manager To
Staff: Don't Panic
Gult'poIrt. City Mlanager Tom Bro-
beil received reports that many City
emploi:-yee fear lost job's as a result
of the State's budget cuts. Press
coverage of layoffs in Tampa, St.
Petersburg, Clearwater, Largo, and
other cities have exacerbated these
concerns.
Brobeil stresses rumors have fueled
this anxiety. He continues to .work
on "decision packages", which will
identify cuts Council could make
to meet statutory requirements, as
well as future cuts if the referendum
requiring additional cuts in property
taxes passes in January.
Many large cities with a "strong-
mayor" form of government have laid
off staff. Brobeil does not have au-
thority to make cuts; it would violate
the City Charter. Such cuts can only.
happen if Council passes a budget
amendment or adopts a new budget.
Brobeil sent a letter to all City staff
notifying them that positions will
get cut from the budget. The new
budget will decide how many and
which ones would get cut. Brobeil
sent .staff a memo last week about
a general employee meeting on July
9 to explain how the City might re-
duce staffing.


Apicnic basket, an electric guitar and a weed wacker were
among the stolen goods being held at the Pinellas County.

of the public looking to claim .stolen property, and have
proof the stolen property is theirs, can view the goods on

Rainbows Are the 6
Color of The Day
By Greg Stemm
The unfurling of a six block long rainbow flag has become a
tradition of the St. Pete Pride celebration, which celebrated
its fifth anniversary on June 30. St. Pete Pride has quickly
grown to become the largest Pride celebration in Florida
Hundreds of other rainbow flags were also prominently dis-
played at the event. The rainbow'flag was fist used to sym-
bolize gay pride and diversity by San Francisco artist Gilbert
Baker in the late 1970s. It is most commonly flown with Ine
red band on top. The colors have specific meaning. red life,
orange healing, yellow sunlight, green nature, turquoise
- magic, blue serenity, and violet spirit. Pride events are
held around the country in late June to commemorate the
anniversary of the Stonewall Riots in June 1969 in New York
which many say began the modern gay rights movement *

Locks of Love
By Morgan Landis

My freshman year of college there was a girl on my dorm floor with
beautiful blonde hair to the middle of her back. One day she came in wit h
it all chopped off. After oohing and awwing the new look, I asked why she cut it.
She had cancer.. Chemotherapy was starting soon. She wanted to preserve
her hair for a wig just in case she lost all of hers. She needed that normalcy .;
and confidence of knowing that if she didn't always feel good on the inside, she
could look okay on the outside and not everyone had to know she was sick. mr
.That's what Locks of Love does. Locks of Love is a non-profit organization -
that provides hairpieces, called prostheses, to children under 18 years old
who are unable to afford them. Prosthetics can cost from $3200 to $6000. so
a lot of families can't afford the privilege of normalcy. The prostheses is spe-
cially molded for the client's head and then made from real hair donated.
"Most donations are from young kid's themselves," said Communications ,
Director Lauren Kukkamaa. Although there is not an exact count on yearly i
hair donations, it does take about six to eight bundles to make one hairpiece.
They give over 200 prosthetics a year to disadvantaged children with can-
cer, genetic disorders, or burns, so there's always a need for more donations.
Hair must be at least ten inches long. It can be colored or permed it still in good condi-
tion, and layered hair is accepted if the longest length reaches ten inches. Once the hair
is mailed, which either you or your hairstylist can do, it is sorted by length at the manufacturing plant
right here in. Florida. Hairs that are gray or not long enough are sold at market price to offset costs.
I have donated my hair three times since freshman year. I was inspired by my friend's courage to try and
live a normal life- even doing her homework- when she wasn't sure if she was going to be there next year.
It's just hair to me, but to someone else it can mean not getting stared at everyday. I like to think some lit-
tle kid won't be teased for being bald or a teenager can deal with more important issues than a bad hair day.
For more information on how you can donate please visit www.locksoflove.org.

By Stacy McBeth
Hello and a good day to all of you
from VFW Post 39. The Post looks
great! The new bar is open. Beau did
a great job. We also have a new bar-
tender, Rick Ascough. Last Satur-
day the new bar and Rick were put
to good use. The Post was packed to
capacity. Beau did a wonderful job
of decorating. Everyone went above
and beyond to welcome the mas-
sive crowd with the members' usual
friendliness. We received many new
members. Sunday Karen, Janice,
Jean, Rick, Nancy and new member,
Lacey Foster, did some cleanup left
over from Saturday. Lacey also deco-
rated for the 4th of July with decora-
tions donated by Victor Corum.
Thursday, July 5th the Ladies Aux-
iliary will convene at 7 p.m. with
their new Board of Officers. Friday,


the 6th and Saturday, the 7th, DJ
Bill will be in house to entertain us.
The Post opens at 1 p.m. with the
exception of Saturday when we open
at 8. This Saturday the VFW will
serve breakfast from 8-11 a.'m. Sun-
day everyone drops by for food, fun
and sports. Monday we are closed.
Tuesday through Friday we observe
happy hour from 4-6 p.m. The La-
dies Auxiliary Back to School Drive
started July 1st and ends Aug. 15th.
I would like to thank Nancy for all
hard work keeping us in line. Ev-
eryone who worked Pride Day went
above and beyond and fell into bed
exhausted. A bit thank you to all is
in order.
Our Post is located at 2599 Central
Avenue. We have new landscaping,
redecorated and a fantastic memo-
rabilia museum. Please stop by.
There's something new weekly. I'll

viding free rides home to intoxicated

30th through July 8th as part of its
expanded schedule. The 'Tow to Go'

than 6,600 drunk drivers off the road

tial ride home and tow to anyone in a

individuals to plan for a safe celebra-
tion this holiday season by being or
choosing a Designated Driver, or by

Free Dental
Exams for Kids
Teeth are important to all of us, in-
cluding our children. Children need
teeth to talk and chew. Pain due to
oral health problems causes children
to miss nearly 52 million school hours
each year.
To help children not miss any school
due to toothaches or other oral health
problems, the Pinellas County Health
Department's Dental Division is
hosting its annual "Back-to-School"
event. This year promises to be big-
ger than ever!
Children ages 1 to 18 will receive
free dental exams and x-rays. Chil-
dren will also take home a care bag of
dental products (while supplies last).
All children must be accompanied by
a parent or guardian to participate in
this event. Many children will be able
to schedule follow-up appointments
prior to start of the school year.
The free dental exams will be offered
8 a.m. to 4 p.m. as follows: Monday,
July 23: Pinellas Park Health Cen-
ter, 6350 .76th Ave. No., 547-7780;
Wednesday, July 25: St. Petersburg
Health Center, 205 Dr. M. L. King
St. No., 824-6975
For more information, call the
Health Center nearest you.
Don't let a toothache ruin your
child's day! Make this event part of
your child's back-to-school routine.

What Is A
Guardianship?
(Part II)
This article is a continuation of our
previous article regarding 'What is a
Guardianship".
Who May Serve as a
Guardian?
If someone is an adult resident of
the State of Florida, that person is
potentially qualified to serve as a
guardian in .Florida. Likewise, a
close relative of a ward who is not a
resident of the State of Florida may
also be qualified to serve as a guard-
ian. However, if a proposed guardian
is incapable of performing the duties
of a guardian or has been convicted
of a felony, that person cannot be
appointed by the Probate Court as
a guardian.
What are the Responsi-
bilities of a Guardian?
Guardians are required to be bond-
ed and may be required to complete
a Court-approved training program
for guardians. Guardians are re-
quired by the Probate Court to be
represented by a lawyer. All guard-


ianship reports are presented to the
Probate Court for review and ap-
proval. In the event that a guardian
does not carry out his or her duties
in a responsible manner, the guard-
ian is subject to removal by the Pro-
bate Court.
Are There Less Severe Alter-
natives to a Guardianship?
Guardianship is an expensive and
time consuming process. Use of less
severe alternatives to guardian-
ship is highly recommended. For
example, the use of a durable power
of attorney, a health care directive
'and/or a revocable living trust may
eliminate the need for a guardian-
ship thereby reducing the costs and
time delay associated with guard-
ianships.
Robert J. Myers is managing attor-
ney of the Estate and Trust Division
of Maney & Gordon, P.A., located at
1135 Pasadena Ave. So., Ste. 140,
St. Petersburg, FL. The telephone
number 727-347-5131. Mr. Myers
welcomes call regarding this article
and other related legal topics. This
column outlines general legal prin-
ciples and is not intended to give you
legal advice. If you have a specific
question about the law, please con-
sult an attorney.

Stop the Spraying
Dear Editor: Attention Mayor
Yakes. We are now on the news, so
please pay attention.
Please help us (the Audubon Soci-
ety, Sierra Club, Defenders of Wild-
life, Gulfport Environmental Pro-ac-
tive and Gulfport Community) put a
stop to this slaughtering of Gulfport
herons and other wildlife and wil-
derness.
Recently there has been a
huge spraying of pesticides and
weedkiller in this community.
Trees are sprayed where nesting
birds are, heavy spraying along
the beach where birds often roost,
and spraying around the palm
trees that line the beach leaving
large dead grass around the bases.
Now the herons are dying and be-
cause their nests are being sprayed
with toxic pesticides and weedkiller,
baby chicks are dying. But they are
not the only birds suffering in Gulf-
port. The toxic .air effects all birds,
what few are left.
Another question for our parks, why
the heavy recent spraying along the
beach? This dead grass around tree
bases is ugly. The spray robs natu-
ral nutrients from the palm trees
and poisons the roots. The grass
around the trees' base could readily
be clipped thus avoiding this extra
toxic spray in this sensitive area
close to the water and acquatic life.
Cars parked along this area also got
a dose of this spray. Leaving grass
and natural vegetation around tree
bases helps to maintain moisture


around tree bases. These palms are
expensive taxpayers are footing the
bill. Palm trees due to over mainte-
nence are extremely fragile thus this
extra toxin is detrimental. Parks
employees should know this much!
Much of the public does. Last year,
thousands of fish and hundreds of
birds died in a polluted Clam Bayou
in Gialfport, all from toxins.
Gulfport deserves better. We don't
want a toxic city. Our parks and
beaches are not shooting ranges for
weedkiller-pesticide guns. Hunters
can vent off their urge to shoot and
kill by going deer hunting instead of
killing our birds, trees and wildlife.
Put those toxic guns away!
We want a green, healthy commu-
nity. I speak on behalf of our com-
munity.

tions between people who are a part
of each others' lives. WUSF provides

guests during the recording process.
Participants are presented with a
CD keepsake of the recording.
WUSF began to air World War II
stories just before Memorial Day and
will continue to air them through
Veterans Day in conjunction with

The War. To share an extraordinary
story with WUSF Public Broadcast-
ing participants can register online
at www.wusf.org and click on the

Undercover Storefront Leads to Arrests
Printers, DVDs, a case of spumante, a used chainsaw, a beat-up electric
guitar, and a brand new toolbox were among the assorted goods on display
last week at the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office Property and Evidence Sec-
tion. The random variety was just part of a large haul the sheriffs depart-
ment amassed during its 9-month undercover storefront operation on 49th
Street in Gulfport.
.Gulfport Police Department property crimes detective Lt. Robert Vincent
said that the sting was Gulfport Police Chief G. Curt Willocks's idea. An in-
crease in property crimes in the area, Vincent said, was what led to it.
Using money the Gulfport Police Department received for participat-
ing in the Pinellas County Narcotics Task Force, the department rented a
storefront on 49th Street, installed surveillance equipment, and set up shop.
Undercover sheriffs department officers ran the legitimate business, which
they called T's Buy/Sell.
"Typically, you investigate a burglary or a theft after the fact," Vincent
said. Instead, T's Buy/Sell was a way to "ferret out" property thieves look-
ing to sell stolen goods. A number of criminals took the bait, as evidenced by
more than a dozen large crates now in custody at the Property and Evidence
Section.
"We have a variety of almost everything," Sheriffs Sgt. Dan Carron said.
One woman even came into T's Buy/Sell and unloaded a few packages of raw,
red meat, which Vincent said the undercover officers promptly threw away.
Detectives logged all goods brought into the store and did not offer them
for sale. Instead, according to a sheriffs department press release, the store
sold items donated by businesses for investigations like this and unclaimed
items from the Sheriffs Office Property and Evidence Section.
Vincent said that so far, the Gulfport Police have arrested 4 suspects that
they were able to identify from surveillance footage. They have also issued
warrants for several other suspects. Some were already in jail on unrelated
charges. Three people, Vincent said, have yet to be identified.
The Pinellas County Sheriffs Property and Evidence Section will display
the remaining unclaimed stolen items for public inspection on Saturday, July
14th between 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. at 4707 145th Ave. N. in Clearwater.

When the person you are caring for
with Alzheimer's disease or other de-
mentia seems distant and lost, the
magic of art often provides the per-

oils or other mediums what they can
no longer communicate with words.

Personal Lightning
Safety Tips
Plan in advance your evacuation
and safety measures. When you first
see lightning or hear thunder, acti-
vate your emergency plan. Now is
the time to go to a building or a ve-
hicle. Lightning often precedes rain,
so don't wait for the rain to begin be-
fore suspending activities.
If outdoors avoid water, high ground
and open spaces. Avoid all metal ob-
jects including electric wires, fences,
machinery, etc. Unsafe places in-
clude underneath canopies, small
picnic or rain shelters or near tress.
Where possible, find shelter in a
substantial building or in a fully en-
closed metal vehicles such as a car,
truck or van with the windows com-
pletely shut.
If lightning is striking nearby
when you are outside, you should
crouch down, put feet together, and
place hands over ears to minimize
hearing damage from thunder. Also,
avoid proximity (minimum of 15 ft.)
to other people.
If indoors avoid water. Stay away
from doors and windows. Do not use
the telephone. Take off head sets.
Turn off, unplug and stay away from
appliances, computers, power tools
and TV sets. Lightning may strike
exterior electric and phone lines, in-
ducing shocks to inside equipment.
Suspend activities for 30 minutes
after the last observed lightning or
thunder.
Injured persons do not carry an
electrical charge and can be handled

ment Agency approved a site plan
to change the use of the property

Gulfport Beach Water Quality Report for June

By Cathy Salustri

Last month the City of Gulfport started monitoring wa-
ter quality in the waters off Gulfport Beach. The City has
contracted with the City of St. Petersburg for the tests.
Every month The Gabber will publish the results of those
tests. If, at any time, the tests show that the water qual-
ity poses a health risk, the City of Gulfport will issue a -
Health Advisory. The City typically receives test results
within a week of taking the sample.
Currently, the City tests for two things: enterococcus and
fecal coliform. Scientists consider enterococcus a common
bacteria found in animal and human intestines, and, re-
sultingly, in human and animal excrement. Federal stan-
dards used to require agencies to measure water quality
by the amount of fecal coliform along public beach waters
but recently have replaced fecal coliform with enterococ- Sample
cus as the standard. Fecal coliform also comes from the Date Enterococcus
waste of warm-blooded animals, including humans. Date
The City of Gulfport currently tests for both types of bac-
teria. Test results will help classify Gulfport Harbor as June 5 3
"good", "moderate", or "poor". Enterococcus of less than 35
parts per 100 milliliter and fecal coliform of less than 199 June 12 1
per 100 milliliter of saltwater indicate good water qual-
ity. June 19 1
For more information, contact the City of Gulfport at
893-1000.

-, I.,


A Room of One's Own
Today I'm going to tell you about my
new favorite place in St. Petersburg.
And though my globetrotting has
basically been relegated to one con-
tinent, I venture to say this might be
my most favorite place in the world.
This is no natural wonder or chic
hotspot, but it is fairly exclusive.
And, though many of you may have
heard of this place, it can be hard
to find. It may take a while to get
there, but bear with me.
Firstly, several factors have con-
spired to keep me in a state ofhermi-
tude lately (not the least of which is,
apparently, making up words). One
of these factors is an annual and un-
avoidable tradition: Wimbledon.
Now, I have already gone over the
finer points of my tennis obsession
with you all so I will simply sum up
this particular distraction as, well,
distracting. ESPN is actually cov-
ering this event at decent hours of
the day (read: working hours) and so
I have been obliged to cut back the
hours at my own hard job: doing su-
per fun stuff and writing about it.
I realize that this may not garner a
whole lot of sympathy from you poor
folks who are away from the televi-
sion during prime, All-England Club
match time, but stay with me.
The second reason that I have been
.stuck at home is the ever-present
home improvement project. I know
many of you are familiar with this
generic chore you can substitute
!your own Home Depot horror story
here. But, this time it was not the
re-bracing of my collapsing ceiling.
Or the replacing of my leaking toilet.
(Ah, the joys of homeownership.)
This past week, I have spent whole
days of my life trying to organize the
terrifying nuclear fallout that is my
"home office."
Now, I know I'm lucky enough to
actually have an entire room for
that designation. But the sad truth
is, this room is so small, dark and
hot and while these might all be
great qualities for a South American


me. Throw in the fact that nearly
every bit of mail or otherwise annoy-
ing artifact from our days is literally
thrown in there ten minutes before
dinner party guests arrive (this has
been standard 'operating procedure
at our house since day one),, and you
have some idea of the conditions !I
have been laboring under.
People, there are Christmas cards
in there from 2002, many now with
the added bonus of a calcified and
neatly pressed insect carcass inside.
There are piles upon piles. of maga-
zines and papers I have never laid
eyes on, not to mention scraps of po-
etry and long-abandoned journals -
all of which have to be meticulously
read for both filing purposes and for
comic relief. (Apparently, and in-
explicably, at one point during my
high school career, I felt the urge to
document the finer points and rela-
tive distinctions between the Back-
street Boys and their predecessors
the New Kids on the Block.) Why on
Earth do we hold onto these things?
Well, we all have our junk drawers,
tables, closets, rooms what have
you into which the endless tide of
crap that makes up a life overflows.
We all have secret stashes of love let-
ters from affairs we can't remember
and exercise equipment collecting
yet more laundry and dust. Perhaps
a more pressing question would be:
why am I torturing myself by trying
to organize it?
I'm glad you asked. You see, Sat-
urday was my thirtieth birthday.
I am now officially three decades
old. Gone forever are the carefree,
proudly disorganized days of my
twenties. (And, I know that this is
true because last year I got an iPod.
This year, my gifts were generally
inspiring, life-affirming books the
kind my grandmother likes to read.)
Admittedly, as many of my friends
have pointed out and recognized
from their own bout with the big
3-0, I have the undeniable urge to
get my act together to grow up and
get down to business.
And so in the spirit of Bill Mur-


seems to be currently centered in my
office. Or at least it will be once I've
cleared away the cobwebs and over-
come the creepy feeling I get just
walking past the door.
I want a space where I can write
- away from the draws of the tele-
vision and the various distractions
and mosquitoes of my front porch. I
want a room with maps on the wall
of places I have never been, with a
laptop, a printer and no internet
connection. And so, this is my birth-
day present to myself.
I nearly finished it this weekend,
and it is undoubtedly, my new favor-
ite place. I have a groovy lava lamp
(and yes, that is the only adjective
you can legally use to describe a lava
lamp) and a soothing little clock that
ticks along steadily, metronome-like
next to the erratic percussion of my
keyboard. I have a semi-comfortable
chair, a hurricane-force fan, and a
single goal: to clear my mind as I
have this space so that I can begin
my next thirty years with far fewer
excuses.
I'm sorry you can't come, but I
promise you can make your own
space just like it. You don't have
to be thirty. You don't have to be
a writer. Just clear away the dust
bunnies and make a little place for
yourself and whatever it is you like
to do.
I hear that Home Depot is having a
sale.on some fabulous organization-
al products.

S'" Roger Turner


R ebecca Collins woke slowly and
luxuriously because, even before
she opened her eyes, she knew
what day it was. Saturday. Her day.
She even knew what time it was, 7:30 -
a.m., of course.
That was the time she usually left for
work at the law firm in downtown St.
Petersburg. And that was the time she
always woke up on Saturdays, so she
could enjoy the luxury of not going to
work.
Not that she didn't like her job. She
did. She had worked far too hard for
too long to get it; she wasn't about to
allow herself to not like it. Four years
of college. Three years at Stetson. Six
years at the firm and well on her way
to a partnership. You bet your ass she
liked it.
But it was hard work, and she worked
long hours. So Saturdays were special.
Friday nights were about unwinding,
if she left the office in time to do any
unwinding. And Sundays were about
responsibility, and about getting ready
to go back to work on Monday. But
Saturday were about her. No one else,
just her.
After luxuriating in bed for 5 minutes,
no more never more she pulled on
a light bathrobe and poured herself a
cup of coffee from the automatic coffee
maker in her kitchen. On Saturdays, it
was set to come on at 7, so the coffee
would be ready when she was. Then
she carried it out to the sun room,
where she always spent the first half
hour of her morning.
The sun room, which she thought of
as her "reading room," was the latest
addition to her little house. And she
loved it. It had transformed the house
into a home.
She bought the house 5 years ago, about
a year after she had started working at
the firm. It was small, less than 1,000
square feet, with two bedrooms and
one bath. But it was plenty big enough
for her or at least she had thought so
at the time. And she loved the location
in Gulfport's Marina District.
She had spent the next few years
working on the place, one major project.


each year. First, she had remodelesflhe
bathroom, turning it into a gleaniltig
white and lavender showcase, a lgW's
bathroom if there ever was one, .Her
favorite part, was the white, ,shp l-
shaped pedestal sink 'and the .qft
vanity lighting around the mirror.,qyer
the sink. ...
Then she had tackled, the kitchen,
complete with custom-made cabinets
to make the best use of the small space,
and with granite countertops. She didn't
cook much, mostly just on weekends,
but it pleased her to have the bhst
materials and the best appliances.
Her biggest project had been to add
this room across the front of the house.
In her mind, it was perfect. There were
double French doors angled across 4ne
corner, her new entrance to the house,
and large, almost picture windows
stretched across the front of the room.
And on the back wall, the old front
wall of the house, she had had wooden
bookshelves built to house her growing
collection of books law books, novels,
non-fiction.
The space that wasn't filled with
books held some of her favorite art
objects, a weakness of hers, and there
was a large open space in the middle
of the bookshelves specifically designed
to showcase her favorite painting, a
watercolor still life of flowers in a vase.
But the one thing in the room she
loved the most was the large, deep-red
leather club chair and ottoman against
the far wall, opposite the front doors.
It was the centerpiece of the room and
the centerpiece of her life. She spent
hours in that chair. It was where she
read, which she did a lot of, and where
she did much of the work she brought
home from the office, and where she
looked out on the world, and where she
thought.
Which is what she was doing this
morning, sitting and enjoying the
anticipation of her day and thinking
about her next big home project a
wooden staircase and deck leading to
her new front doors. She didn't want
,it to be too big and she didn't want it
to overwhelm the house. Something


simple but tasteful with a nice
decorative railing. And of course, she
would need a new sidewalk and some
landscaping, including 6ne elegant
palm tree. Most of the design was
already in her head.
As was her plan for the day. She
was going shopping, her usual
Saturday activity and her all-time
favorite way to spend her down
time. Sometimes she spent the day
combing through the shops in the
Art Village, sometimes she went to
Tyrone Square Mall, and sometimes
she crossed the bay to a shopping
Mecca in Tampa. But today, she was
going to downtown St. Petersburg
to roam through the art galleries on
Central Avenue and, maybe, if there
was time, down on Beach Drive.
Then she would stop and have a
leisurely lunch at one of the better
restaurants, maybe Bella Brava or
Caf6 Alma or even the new Parkside
Grill. And she just might have a
Margarita. Then she would head
for home to look over her purchases,
maybe take a short nap, then curl up
for the evening with a good book or
pop in a DVD and watch a movie.
But first, there was shopping to do
and, today, it would be about art. No
major purchases, of course. Making
a major purchase, like a painting,
for instance, takes time and several
visits to make sure it was the right
purchase. There were no impulse
buys hanging on her walls.
She took the same approach for all
major purchases, including suits to
wear to work and expensive shoes,
another weakness. She took her time
and was proud of the fact that she
spent her money well.
Not that there was no room at all for
impulse buying. There was, but only
on less expensive items: a bottle of
perfume; a casual, weekend blouse; a
pair of sandals; something small for
her home. Who knows? She might
even buy something today.
The only thing she knew for sure
was that she was going shopping in
downtown St. Pete, by herself and for
herself, and that it was going to be
as nearly perfect a day as she could
make it.


This is a work of fiction. The
events, the people and, especially, the
victims, are all fictional as well. No
similarity to real people or real events
is intended. Next week: A shock in
the crime column.
