Local Bird Deaths

Exaggerated by Media
By Cathy Salustn

Kathleen Moran says she
and her neighbors have bur-
ied 21 night-herons by the
Pontiac Apartments in Gulf-
port. As a result of her con-
'. cerns, the Suncoast Seabird
Sanctuary and the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conser-
vation Commission (FWC)
have both gotten involved in
Sl a highly publicized investi-
| J Rgation about birds dying in
SI Gulfport.
There's just one problem: no one can find anything
wrong, and no one from either agency has seen 21
dead birds. According to officials at the Suncoast
Seabird Sanctuary, most reporters have under-
played or ignored the lack of proof that birds died
from pesticides- or that the birds died at all.
"I've told every reporter what I'm telling you, but
they don't want to hear it," Michelle Simoneau,
the Marketing and Public Relations Director for
the Suncoast Seabird Sanctuary, told The Gabber.
"There were no signs of poisoning. There was just
nothing to substantiate it."
According to Gary Morse, a spokesman for FWC,
all the birds that have died were juveniles. There
is no record of adult birds dying. Last month FWC
performed necropsies (an autopsy for non-humans)
on two juvenile night-herons. They have received
the results of one necropsy and still await another.
The verdict? The juvenile bird died of starvation.
FWC knows of only these two deaths.

Proposed Millage

Rate for 07/08
Re--nit chan-es in property, tax la'.%s had
Gulfport City Council hedging bets when
they passed a proposed 3.3554 millage
rate for the 07-08 budget year on Tues-
day. The resolution passed with a section
which reads "In the event that the Florida
Department of Revenue (FDOR) deter-
mines that the millage rate of 3.3554 does
not represent the minimum tax cuts as
established by a majority vote of the City
Council, the proposed millage rate shall
be the rate determined by the FDOR pur-
suant to HB-1B Sec. 200.185(3)-5."
"The FDOR seems to be as confused as
we are about the actual implementation
of what was recently passed in Talla-
hasse," said Tom Brobeil, City Manager.
"We faxed our numbers to both the Pinel-
las County Property Appraiser and to the
FDOR and asked each to review them for
accuracy and to sign off on them. Both of
them declined because no one has the

7th Annual One Act Play Festival


Pictured (L-R): Perrin Bisogno, Chris
Romeo, & Lynne Locher in Fallout.
The Gulfport Community Players
opened their 7th Annual One Act Play
Festival this weekend. Out of 37 plays
submitted, the top eight- scripts were
picked by a committee of Gulfport
Community Players board members
and volunteers. Each play is an origi-
nal piece from a local playwright that
lasts about 10 minutes long.

A review by Morgan Landfs
Fallout by Gil Perlroth is a musical
about a soldier, his wife and his moth- *
er. They struggle with issues dealing
with going to war; being separated by
loved ones, the possible outcomes for
a soldier, and dealing with the conse-
quences. The musical numbers move
the story along smoothly, making it
feel like a complete package.
A Guy by William McNally is a bril-
liant concept, creating a town where
jokes go- thus the title A Guy- you
know, that guy that walks into a bar,
buys a drink and then the punch line.
Although we've all heard all the jokes
before, the enthusiasm by Eileen
Navarro as a police woman trying to
get in on the comical action made it
worthwhile.
Another piece, I'm From the Govern-
ment, written and directed by Largo
resident Vic Carr, is the highlight of
the night with an endearing perfor-
mance by Pat Mahan. I have often

While Supplies Last While Supplies Last! While Supplies Last!


wondered who is running the show
at government offices, and this piece
proves to be a hilarious account of
what actually goes on. It is also ends
with a twist for a very amusing finish
to the first act.
The second act starts out in a kara-
oke bar in Wheelies by Maggie Berrill.
I find myself inundated with dating
tips on how to meet people every time
I talk to my grandparents, go online,
or have dinner with another happy
couple. In this piece we are remind-
ed that trying too hard is not a good
thing, sometimes all you need is a
little charm, and if that doesn't work,
having a great singing voice will help
you with the ladies.
Maggie had another play in the sec-
ond act called The Phone Call. It was
similar to her other one; in fact both
had a main character be a slimy guy,
played by the same guy. Although
amusing, the same playwright had
two plays, in the same act, with a
similar theme. It probably could have
made more of impact with more sepa-
ration by the acts.
In Your Call is Very Important by
David Smith, actor Jim Russell stood
out playing two different characters;
his accents right on, his detachment
perfect, and his glued facial expres-
sions hilarious. We've all had the ex-
perience of getting the run around by
some big business, but the play says
stuff that we never can in person.
Act two ends with The Lover, also
by David Smith. It reminded me of an
old Lucille Ball episode. There are a
group of pals that frequently hang out
and poke fun at each other, girls who
get into their own mischief, and a big
misunderstanding between the main
couple. The play is about writing, so
although it seems to not have a lot of
action, one of the main characters fi-
nally does get some.
Over all there was some variety for
everyone with dramas, musicals, and
comedies. I would have loved to see 8
different playwrights, although the
talented two who had two plays did
deserve to be there.
This is the very last weekend to see
it at the Catherine A. Hickman The-
ater of Gulfport. Tickets are available
for $15 each at Eileen's Resale Bou-
tique, the Beach Bazaar, the Gulfport
Chamber of Commerce, the Gulfport
Casino, or by calling 322-0316. Cur-
tain time for Thursday, Friday, & Sat-
urday shows is 8 p.m., and 1:30 p.m.
for the Sunday afternoon show.

Free Dental
Exams & Shots for Kids
Pinellas County Health Department
Offer free Back-to-School Dental Ex-
ams and Immunizations for Children.
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 bigger than ever!
Children ages one 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 the 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 Center, 6350 76th Ave. No.,
547-7780;Wednesday, July 25: St. Pe-
tersburg Health Center 205 Dr. M.
L. King Street North, 824-6975. No
appointment is necessary.
Bring your children's immunization
records so they can get their free back-
to-school shots as part of their visit.
Without a current Florida Certificate
of Immunization (Form DH680) your
child will have to repeat all immuni-
zations in order to start school. For
more information, call the health cen-
ter nearest you.

Where Does Our Money Go?
Gulfport Receives Only 14% of Taxes to Run City
By Cathy Salustri
All the activity in Tallahassee has a lot of residents thinking about property
taxes. Gulfport's City Manager Tom Brobeil has prepared a list of employees
who may lose their jobs as a result of Tallahassee's tax initiatives. But of the
property tax monies in question, how much comes back to Gulfport every year?
According to the Pinellas County Property Appraiser, Gulfport pours almost
$1 Billion annually into County coffers from property taxes alone.
Those property taxes come from several types of property, but properties in
Gulfport fall into two basic categories: Residential and non-residential. Gulf-
port residents, after exemptions, pay Pinellas County $26,441,551. Gulfport
businesses receive no exemptions and pay Pinellas County $1,971,039. Added
together, Gulfportians pay Pinellas County almost $28.5 million; the City of
Gulfport receives just under $from that money. To recap: Gulfport businesses
and residents pay almost $4 million of that money every year. This figure, Gulf-
port City Manager Tom Brobeil stresses, will most likely go down, estimating
that Gulfport will receive roughly half a million dollars less next year.

Pasadena Bear Creek Estates

Holds Inaugural Event


St. Petersburg City Council member Herb Poison, district 1 (far right in the baseball cap)
chats with residents of the newly formed Pasadena Bear Creek Estates Neighborhood As-
socation at Sunday's inaugural block party event. Food, beverages and demonstrations by
the St. Petersburg Police Department's K-9 Unit were highlights of the event.
By Greg Stemm.
The newly formed Pasadena Bear Creek Estates Neighborhood Association
held its first event, a block party, on Sunday, July 15. Organizers said about
75 people attended.
"After air conditioning came along we got away from these kinds of neighbor-
hood gatherings, said Herb Polson, St. Petersburg City Council member (Dis-
trict 1) who attended Sunday's event. "It's good to see people coming together
again like they used to. Many of these people live within a block of each other
and I'd venture that many of them had not met before today's party. When
peol~le get to know each other crime goes down...it's all about breaking down
barriers," Polson noted.
Poison said that St. Petersburg has well over 110 neighborhood associations
around the city, noting that there are 16 different groups in his district alone.
The sponsors of Sunday's block party just formed their association last sum-
mer and held their first meeting with a board of directors in January.
"We're hoping to have a lot more gatherings and other neighborhood events,"
said Richard Bullis, vice president of the group. "We are talking about hosting
a Halloween Haunted house for kids this Fall.
Representatives from the St. Petersburg police department attended the par-
ty and. did K-9 Unit demonstrations and offered fingerprinting for children.
Pasadena Bear Creek Estates is bordered by 58th Street on the east to
Pasadena Boulevard on the west, Central Avenue on the north to the St. Pe-
tersburg/Gulfport city limits on the south.

The Rodman Dam
Murders Premier
Barbara Cronin Harrington's con-
densed version of her screenplay,
The Rodman Dam Murders (An Un-
natural Born Killer) that was filmed
throughout Pinellas County by the
'Florida Motion Picture & Television
Assoc., will premier on Sunday, July
22nd at the Coconuts Comedy Club,
2950 Gulf to Bay Blvd. in Clearwa-
ter. Party at 5:30, film at 6:30 p.m.
$5 admission.
The Rodman Dam Murders is based
on the true story of Randy, who tried
to kill his parents when he was ten,
and went on to kill two lovers for
what appeared to be 'no apparent'
reason.
Barbara, who knew Randy as a
child, interviewed him on Florida's
Death Row and knew that there was
a reason. According to the detectives
on the case, DNA was used for the
first time in the United States to help
convict a murderer.
Barbara also is the author of Give
Him Back To God, inspired by the
murder of a married Roman Catholic
priest by his wife in Port Richey.
For more information call Barbara
Harrington at 572-6345.

YOU & THE

L AW


How Should My
Business Be Set Up?
Part I
Our office has had the pleasure of
advising and counseling numerous
clients concerning how to legally set
up a new business venture. As a re-
sult, five (5) different choices of the
types of business entities that may e
utilized will be presented in this ar-
ticle and our next article. The five (5)
basic choices which an entrepreneur
or new business owner may wish to
consider are:
A. Sole Proprietorship;
B. General Partnership;
C. Limited Partnership;
D. Corporation; and
E. "S" Corporation.
In this article we will examine the le-
gal requirements of a sole proprietor-
ship and a general partnership.
A. Sole Proprietorship
1. A sole proprietorship is an unin-
corporated business owned by a sin-


gle individual. A sole proprietorship
is not a legal entity separate from its
owner.
2. The owner of a sole proprietorship
has unlimited liability for the debts
and obligations of the business. The
owner, therefore, must rely on per-
sonal assets or insurance for protec-
tion against creditors.
3. For income tax purposes, income
and loss of the sole proprietorship
passes directly to the sole proprietor
and is reported on his individual in-
come tax return.
4. No special organizational docu-
ments are necessary to begin business
as a sole proprietorship.
5. The advantage of a sole proprietor-
ship is that it is a simple means of be-
ginning a business.
6. In Florida, an individual who en-
gages in business has a sole propri-
etorship under a fictitious name must
register the fictitious name with the
Florida Secretary of State's office in
Tallahassee, Florida.
B. General Partnership
1. A partnership is an unincorpo-
rated association of two or more indi-
viduals, corporations or other entities
engaging in business for a profit.
2. Like a sole proprietorship, a gen-
eral partnership is not a separate le-
gal entity. Each partner in a general

partnership is personally liable for
the partnership liabilities.
3. A general partnership must file a
separate income tax return for federal
income tax purposes. However, this is
merely an information return. Gener-
ally, all income passes to the general
partners and is reported on their indi-
vidual income tax returns. Losses are
also passed through, subject to limi-
tations, which will be made stricter if
proposed changes in the tax laws are
implemented.
4. Although no written documenta-
tion is necessary to form a general
partnership, normally the rights and
obligations of the various partners
(including their shares of income,
losses, and cash distributed by the
partnership) are specified in a written
partnership agreement. The partner-
ship agreement may also specify the
manner in which the business is to be
operated, and may designate a man-
aging general partner who serves the
function of a chief executive officer.
Generally, in the absence of contrary
provisions in the partnership agree-
ment, the business affairs of the part-
nership are governed by a majority
vote of the partners.
5. Generally, the transfer of a part-
nership interest is more difficult than
a transfer of corporate stock. restric-
tions on the transferability of a part-
nership interest. may be specified
in the partnership agreement, and
transfers normally require the con-
sent of the other partners.
6. In Florida, a general partnership
is required to file a fictitious name
registration.
,7. Generally death, insanity, or with-
drawal of a general partner from the
partnership "dissolves" the partner-
ship, although the remaining partners
may elect to continue the partnership
business in a new partnership.
8. Generally, each general partner is
an agent of the partnership and has
the power to bind the partnership.

Public Comment

& Council Quotes

Excerpts heard at July 17, 2007 the Gulfport Council Meeting

"I don't have an update yet on why the night herons died. Specimens
have been sent to forensic experts to determine the cause. We suspect
spraying, but it was not by the City. We were not spraying in that area."
-Gulfport City Manager Tom Brobeil in response to a question from Council
member Michele King on the mass deaths of birds at the end of 49th Street.

"There is no ruling yet on the Pasadena Waterfront Properties Case" -
Gulfport City Attorney Tim Driscoll in his update to City Council.

"When people buy those new condominiums going up behind O'Maddy's
and they start coming to you with complaints about an establishment
that has been doing a respectable business by the book for years, you
need to remind them... O'Maddy's was there FIRST." Gulfport resident
Bob Newcomb speaking to city council in public session.

"2005-21 needs to be readdressed. What it did was take away taxpayers
rights to launch kayaks and canoes from our waterfront. I've been told
to be patient. It's been almost two years. 2005-21 needs to be revoked
before 2007 is over!" Gulfport resident Jean Proch to city council in public
session.

"Let me give you a bit of advice on the budget...there's lots of waste there.
I get letters addressed to me as the secretary of the Firefighter's Pension
Board that were mailed from City Hall to my mailbox at City Hall. I get
packets of mail sent to me in large envelopes sent to my home four blocks
away. When you are looking at the figures you need to demand line items
and look at them very carefully. Cuts can be made without cutting ser-
vices to our residents." -Christine Brown during public session

"I'd like to commend vice mayor Ted Phillips on his award and his many
years of public service to our community. Id like council to consider
renaming Wood Ibis Park to the Phillips Wood Ibis Park in tribute to his
service to Gulfport." Council member Michele King during the Other Busi-
ness agenda item.

"Personally I think we should head a drive to throw every single incum-
bent in the state legislature out of office." Council member Bob Worthing-
ton commenting on the confusion, local budget crunches and perceive inequities
in the new property tax laws passed recently in Tallahassee.

Gulfport Hardware is
Business of the Month
The Gulfport Chamber of Com-
merce announced at their June 21st
meeting that Gulfport Hardware is
designated as the business of the
Month.
"Having opened less than a year
ago, the Gulfport Hardware store is
a local treasure trove." stated Lori
Rosso, Chamber President. "For
such a small space they provide al-
most anything you would readily
need within minutes of home. It is
truly a marvel of space ingenuity!"
Whether you need a key repro-
duced, a new rake, a fitting for your
plumbing, they have it. No need to
go to your larger chain stores. If
they don't have it in stock, they can
usually order it for you. The vari-
ety is amazing considering the size
of the store. The individual atten-
tion is also what makes it so unique.
You don't have to step a foot in the
door before being asked if you can be
helped.
If you have not yet visited David
Cretella at Gulfport Hardware at
5006 Gulfport Blvd., take a moment
to explore its entirety.

No Increase for City
Health Premiums
The City of Gulfport got at least one
piece of good news in the impending
budget crunch: premiums for health
insurance for city employees will hold
steady with no decrease in benefits.
Council approved coverage renewal
with Aetna Insurance for the city's
employee health care coverage. Pro-
jected annual expenditures for all
combined premiums is $729,703.08
According to the city's human re-
sources department the City had told
its current health insurance carrier,
Bouchard Insurance, that in light of
expected budget cuts they were un-
der a mandate to find coverage which
would not exceed current budgeted
expenses.
Bouchard Insurance presented the
City with five proposals, including the
proposal from Aetna, which has pro-
vided coverage to city workers for the
past three years. In a memo to coun-
cil, human resources stated one of the
reasons for the hold on premium in-
creases was because of the continuity
of coverage over multiple years.
An Insurance Review Committee,
comprised of employees from vari-
ous departments, including the union
stewards for the Police and Fire De-
partments reviewed the proposals
and had recommended renewal.

It's a Magical Night in Gulfport


A group of Harry Potter enthusiasts dressed up as various characters and attended the
opening night of the new movie Harry Potter: Order of the Phoenix last Tuesday. The group
traveled to BayWalk in downtown St. Petersburg after a house party to see the midnight
showing on the IMAX theatre with 3D. Mixed reviews...most liked it, but felt the 3D could
have been longer. Pictured here are from left to right: Craig and Deborah Frethem, Jim
Shuller, all of Gulfport; and Eileen and John Belt, both of St. Petersburg.

Birds, from front page

"There was no indication of pesticide
poisoning from the one sample," Morse
said, adding that pesticides might not
have shown up because "the samples
weren't exactly fresh." FWC received
the sample on June 28. However, the
bird had no other signs that biologists
expect to see with poisonings.
"There were no lesions or any other
indications, no hemorrhaging, you
would expect to see if it were pesticide
poisoning," Morse added. "It looks like
the parents abandoned the nest for
some reason."
Moran said birds "were falling out of
the trees"; Pitt said only babies blew
out of nests with storms or as they
tried to fledge, but no birds fell out of
the trees because they had died. Pitt
lives and works at the Pontiac Apart-
ments. Moran lives next door.
"We were burying adults," Moran
said.
"There's never been a dead adult,"
Pitt said. Pitt agrees with Simoneau
that the media. has misrepresented
the deaths.
"When Channel 9 came out and


Kathleen was standing out there with
Shim, I' said 'wait a minute, you guys
are exaggerating this, you're blowing
it out of proportion, and you's~eas.um-
ing- we don't know what's wrong witlj
the birds."
"She [Moranj laid "In my .helrt' I
know it's pesticide'. Well, in my heart
I believe it's a part of Mother Nature,"
Pitt said.
Moran said the Sanctuary told hbr
one bird she brought in had gone blind
from pesticide poisoning. The Sanctu-
ary had to euthanize the bird.
"We never told her it was blinded by
pesticides; there's no way we could
ever know that," Simoneau said. "The
bird was blinded in both eyes, dehy-
drated, and very sick, but we did not
deduct at all that the bird died of poi-
soning."
Simoneau said the Suncoast Seabird
Sanctuary received two birds suffer-
ing from dehydration and starvation.
Simoneau says Moran buried six birds
rather than 21.
"They were not to be found," Simo-
neau said of the 21 adult birds. "I
have an e-mail that says she buried
six birds in her backyard. Where are

the other ones? They didn't come
through here."
FWC can't back up Moran's claims,
either.
"Nobody has told us that there were
21 adult birds dead," Morse said. "We
didn't have any reports of adult birds
dying."
Biologists from several different offic-
es throughout the state have worked
on the investigation; all agree that
pesticides don't seem likely and that
they only know of two birds that died
in Gulfport. They say that if Moran
witnessed birds falling out of trees dy-
ing, she should have contacted them
sooner.
"The problem was, people didn't call
us until almost a month later," Morse
says. 'The die off started in May; we
didn't get called until late June. One
thing that is very important is when
people see birds dying, they report it
to our bird mortality database." When
the database records five deaths in a
small area within a certain amount of
time, it automatically triggers an in-
vestigation, Morse said.
"We're not saying.people are lying,
but there's just no evidence here.
The only evidence we have is of three
birds. Two died and one lived. What
we have is heresay," Morse said.
What about Moran's 21 dead birds?
"This would be a pretty darn big
hole," FWC Wildlife Biologist Dan
Wolf said of a grave for an adult night-
heron, "If nobody else has seen them,
the only way to verify a mortality is to
dig them up and count skulls."

Il Postino. I couldn't even tell you the
last time I went to an independent
film. Cultural suckage aside, the Bay-
walks and Channelsides of the world
are pretty great places to see a movie.
It's crazy to be nostalgic about the
theaters of yore when you've got big
cushy chairs, gourmet candy and
Dolby surround sound with which to
stupefy yourself. Remember when
having an armrest cup holder was a
big deal? And, I can romanticize the
drive-in all I want, but the truth is -
if you actually went there to see the
movie those places were crummy.
So, Sunday I went to the Baywalki-
est, Channelsidiest of all of the Tam-
pa Bay area's theaters the Muvico
20 in Centro Ybor. Oh, and not just
the Muvico I went to the way cool,
VIP, 21 and over Premier Theater.
Oh, people. This is the awesomest
modern movie theater in the land. It
really is VIP. It says so right there
on the free, VIP popcorn coupons that
come with the ticket. Of course, the
ticket can only be purchased with the
title to your home or your first-born
child (whichever comes first), but re-
ally, it is so worth it. You have to wind
past all the riff-raffy theaters to get
there (through the Disney-fied "grot-
to" alley that is the lobby) and then,
like the mythical village of Briga-
doon, it appears magically before you.
Inside the lobby there is bistro seat-
ing, that delectable free popcorn, and
a full bar. A full bar! Now, I went
to see Harry Potter in the middle of
the day, but I'm not ashamed to tell
you that I kicked back in my ginor-
mous leather theater seat with an "oil
drum" of Fosters lager just because
I could. And really, the best part is -
no kids. Not one single text-messag-
ing, gum smacking, candy throwing
teenager in sight. (I apologize to all
of the considerate, responsible movie-
going teenagers I know that there
are one or two of you out there.) Holy
gravy train, Batman this is what
movie-watching was meant to be.
So, maybe it is a cultural vacu-
um. Maybe it is in Tampa. And
maybe (okay, clearly) I no longer
have the right to be sanctimonious
about my movie-watching predilec-
tions. But, next time I head out for
a date with the silver screen, I'm
pretty sure it will be in VIP style.
Hey, Harry Potter and the Half-
Blood Prince is only a year away.

Sam would be Samantha, Saman-
tha Collins, Rebecca's sister and
pnly living relative. That made
Rebecca Sam's only living relative, too,
of course, which, in turn, meant that
Rebecca was responsible for her. It was
a burden that she carried heavily.
She had been carrying that burden for
3 years, now since the death of their
parents in an automobile accident. It
had been a random thing, and sudden,
as all such accidents are, and totally
unexpected. They had departed early
for a trip north to visit relatives and,
by the end of the day, they were dead.
Simple as that.
Not quite so simple was what they left
behind: a small house, nearly paid for
but not quite; some money in the bank,
although not a lot; and a dependent
daughter, now dependent on Rebecca.
Sam and Rebecca had been fairly
close as kids, only three years apart
and getting along about as well as two
sisters who are three years apart can.
Which was well enough. It wasn't until
Samantha was 12 or 13 that her older
sister, and eventually their parents,
began to notice that something was
wrong.
In time, it became apparent what that
something was: Sam was retarded.
Well, not retarded, exactly; it was more
like her intelligence level froze in her
adolescence and remained there. Even
now, at age 28, she was physically an
adult but mentally an adolescent.
Rebecca, like most children, moved on
with her life leaving home at 18 to
go to college and then, four years later,
law school. With good grades, she got
a good job at a good law firm. Her life
developed rapidly and well.
Samantha stayed behind under the
watchful eye of their parents. They
tried to give her as normal a life as pos-
sible, even helping her to acquire me-
nial jobs so she would have something
to do with her time and have contact
with other people. But it didn't do a lot
of good. She remained only marginally
socialized.
Finally, as a last resort, they moved

Insurance with a Local, Personalized Touch


By Morgan Landis
As a young professional I am becom-
ing aware of my duties as an adult. I
need a car that works, buy a house,
start a family, and then get insur-
ance for all these things just in case
something bad would happen. On my
road to being a grown up, I am find-
ing getting insurance isn't exactly
what I expected it to be. My family
is up north, so they don't know what
insurance agencies are good down
here. I tried looking at the major
companies I see in commercials, but
apparently they don't like Florida
because they all seem to be pulling
out of the state.. Or if I do find one,
I get an automated message asking
me what I need. Well, at 24 years old,
I'm not quite sure what I need.
That's where Bentley-DeNight In-
surance Services comes into the pic-
ture. Bentley-DeNight is a Trusted
Choice independent agency, which
means they figure out exactly what
you need and then they offer your
,policies to all the insurance carriers
they represent to find the best price
and coverages. Their agency is not
restricted to selling only the policies
of their representative company like
Allstate, State Farm, Nationwide,
etc. The best part is that you talk to
an actual person- not an automated
message or email contact. They actu-
ally care and try to find a cost effec-
tive solution to a need we must all
have... insurance.
"No matter who you call, you're
always speaking to an owner," said
Jeffrey DeNight, one of three owners
at the insurance company. Jeff is a
former business owner and a realtor
in Florida and realized that there
weren't many insurance companies
that were responsive to their insur-
ance needs for their real estate cli-
ents. He talked to his partner Bren-
da Bentley, a former Allstate agency
owner for 30 years. Brenda sold her
business and together decided to
work on building a customer focused,
independent agency representing
the best of all available underwriters
for their commercial and personal
clients. The word is out about their
agency's focus on solving problems
for "all" Florida resident insurance
needs. Jeff devotes most of his time
now to the insurance agency needs.
Brenda has been in the insurance


Owners Jeffrey DeNight and Elissa Stenders answer their own phones, as well as
all of your insurance questions.


business for over 30 years and is a
Certified Insurance Counselor. Her
experience and ongoing education
requirements allow her to provide
valuable insight for the agency's cli-
ents. The third owner, and current
Office Manager, is Elissa Stenders.
Elissa has been working in the insur-
ance business since high school and
is the agency's auto insurance expert
and knowledgeable in all personal
lines of insurance.
Basically, Bentley DeNight Insur-
ance is a one-stop shopping experi-
ence for insurance needs. Bentley-
DeNight writes home, auto, life, boat,
small business, commercial property,
and flood insurance. They even do
personal umbrellas. Once a client
shares their questions and concerns
they realize it is important to have
one agency representing all of their
insurance needs. For someone like me
who's not too sure of what she needs,
this is their biggest selling point. In
addition, they are pleasant people to
talk to when discussing such confus-
ing and boring insurance topics.
"It's our personal touch," says Elis-
sa. "We take time with every custom,
er to find-out what best suits them.
As homeowners and auto owners we
have the same concerns and ques-
tions."
Unlike the large insurance compa-
nies, their staff is small and in con-
stant contact with their clients and
insurance companies to keep up on all
the ever-changing, insurance legisla-
Paid AVrtertisement-


tion impacting all of our lives. Bent-
ley-DeNight Insurance even sends
out a newsletter with tidbits on how
to keep your house safe during hur-
ricane season, claims numbers for all
carriers just in case, and small gifts
showing their appreciation for their
clients business and trust. They are
a Trusted Choice agency:
In a world where I don't have to
see my bank teller for any transac-
tions, get medicine from a drive-thru
window or have friends online that
I've never met in person- it's nice to
know that there is a human I can
talk to when I'm not quite sure what
I'm supposed to be doing with insur-
ance.
I would think this is even more im-
portant for adults who have more
assets than I do, or business owners
who need the financial security to
protect what they have worked hard
to build over the years.
I am glad I found Bentley DeNight
Insurance.

HI. I'm Lisa Stoler and for me, real estate is
about a whole lot more than just bedrooms
and bathrooms or landscaping and lanais.
For me, real estate is about PEOPLE.

Whether you are selling or buying, your
relationship with your realtor can make or
break the deal. I'll take the time to get to
know YOU. Call me and let's get started.

Thank you Connie Jeanenne Strebler
for 50 wonderful years together.
7-20-57 thru 7-20-07
Happy Anniversary honey, I love you with all my
heart and soul. Thank you for four outstanding sons.
A man could not ask for any more than you gave me.
Through hard times and good times, enduring the
god awful loss of two of our teenage sons in vehiclu-
lar accidents, we sustained ourselves only through
our honest, deep love for each other and our
remaining sons, Jim & Ken Strebler and our two
fantastic granddaughters, Devin & Danielle Strebler.
God willing may we have many more years together.


Your Proud & Greatful Husband
George W. Strebler
