"Surprisingly, even with a population in excess of one million residents,
Pinellas County does not have a facility that provides glassblowing, metal
sculpture, or other industrial arts." Ballard said.
The Industrial Arts Center is a not-for-profit organization and relies on the
donations of individuals and organizations. As Mary Jane Park of the St.
Petersburg Times stated 'aiding charities is called good business.' She noted
many different causes that benefit from local businesses and how those busi-
nesses in return benefit. "If the cause fits, they will come and support." adds
Lori Rosso, President of Gulfport Chamber of Commerce.
"Gulfport is known as an artist community, this is an additional enhance-
ment to the type of art work available." ,
There are a number of ways that you can support the Gulfport Industrial
Arts Center. There will be many special events held but the most important
'is that visitors will be able to actually experience the action by viewing the
glassblowing, pottery building and metalworking from bleachers just outside
the front doors!

Help for
Moms-to-be
All babies deserve a healthy start
in life, but the unfortunate reality is
that too many babies are at risk for
health problems before they are even
born. Many times, these risks can
be eliminated when the mom-to-be
receives some basic education, guid-
ance and encouragement.
To ensure that possible risk fac-
tors are considered, expectant moms
should ask their doctor or nurse to
complete a Healthy Start Prenatal
Risk Screening form. The form asks
a series of simple questions that al-
lows healthcare providers to iden-
tify potential risks and link moms to
available services provided through
their local Healthy Start coalition
and community resources.
Completing the Healthy Start Pre-
natal Risk Screen is valuable for all
mothers regardless of age, race or eco-
nomic status. Risk factors that could
result in a pre-term or low-birth-
weight baby do not discriminate, and
identifying them early enough can
make a significant difference.
For more on the Healthy Start
screens, visit www.HealthyStartBa-
by.com or call 1-800-451-BABY.

You & THE




A Living Trust
Key To Your Estate Plan
As you read financial publications
and listen to financial planners
these days, you may find many ar-
ticles and various opinions on "'liv-
ing trusts". What are living trusts?
Do you need one if you have a will?
What are the advantages and disad-
vantages? How can a living trust fit
into your estate plan? Here are some


of the answers:
A living trust is an arrangement
you create during your lifetime to
provide for yourself and your fam-
ily both before and after your death.
It has a built-in flexibility that can
work very well with your overall es-
tate plan.
Advantages of a Living Trust
Reduction of Probate Cost Wheth-
er you have a will or not, all assets
you own are subject to probate when
you pass away unless you have a
trust. Although you can enjoy the
use of the assets you place in a trust
during your life, the living trust
removes them from your estate for
probate purposes. You, therefore,
save the probate and administration

costs you would be required to pay if
those same assets were distributed
by will.
Speedy Distribution of Trust As-
sets- By establishing a living trust
during your lifetime, you are setting
up a method of managing and dis-
tributing your assets. Because the
living trust escapes the probate pro-
cess, the plan of distribution you de-
scribe is put into action immediately
upon your death. There are none of
the delays which occur under the
distribution by will.
Flexibility in Planning Another
advantage of the living trust is the
overall flexibility it provides. Most
living trusts are revocable. This give
you the freedom to amend, add to,
or even completely do away with the
living trust agreement as you wish.
A living trust can allow you flexibili-
ty while you receive income from you
assets during your lifetime, plus as-
set management after your death.

Volunteer at
The Science Center
The Science Center of Pinellas Coun-
ty needs your help. Every year about
22,000 students come through the
Science Center on school fields trips
to learn skills which enhance math
and science education. Math and sci-
ence are critical-need subject areas,
because the State of Florida has a
demonstrated shortage of profession-
als in professions such as emerging
technology, engineering, and comput-
er science. To fix this problem, Pinel-
las County schools frequently team
up with the Science Center to help
children learn more about the excit-
ing aspects of math and science.
Need something to do on weekends
or spare time? Volunteers are needed
to manage the membership program,
coordinate volunteers, help with fund
raising, help with events, and work in
the gift shop. Everything done by vol-
unteers directly benefits the students
who visit the Science Center.
"An important part of the Science
Centers role is educating the com-
munity" says McNaughton. "We have
computer classes teaching students
how to use the new technologies out
there, everything from computer ba-
sics to advanced photoshop."
Software benefits the students whom
attend the Science Centers computer
programming camps. Along with soft-
ware donations, printer paper, anti-
bacterial hand gel, and furniture are
in great need. For more information
visit the Science Center on the web at
www.sciencecenterofpinellas.com/ or

Q : What's going on with Scout, Hall?

A *Scout Hall has occupied the minds and mouths of certain council mem-
ebers as well as several locals for several years. While the talk has ta-
pered off, according to City Manager Tom Brobeil, "Scout Hall is still being
treated as an active project."
City Council asked for bids to fix Scout Hall, but rejected them because they
exceeded the project budget. When they did so, they asked City staff to get
more bids in six months, hoping the city would get better prices. That six
months is up in September, and if the bids they receive come in under bud-
get, the City could award a contract in October or November.
Scout Hall has a budget of $226,000, which City staff will ask council to
carry over to the next fiscal year.

Y ep, it's that time of the year,
again time to see if you've
been doing your homework and
reading The Gabber each and every
week for the past six months. I know
you have; how else can you keep up
with what's going on in Gulfport? The
St. Petersburg Times? Yeah, right.
This is an open-book quiz, meaning
you can look at old copies of The Gabber
for answers, if you have them around
somewhere. I'm sure you do; I have a
stack in the closet.
All of the questions have been taken
from January thru June (2007) issues.
Most of the stories appeared either on
the front page or were covered in this
column, so there's no excuse for getting
any questions wrong. If you miss more
than three, shame on you. If you get
them all right, you either work for the
city, write this column, or have too
much time on your hands.
Onward.
1. On June 29, Gulfport's city clerk of
14 years "resigned" with:
a) A huge retirement party blowout;
b) A sense of relief all around;
c) A severance package worth $45,047;
d) A collection of testicles in her
pocketbook.
2. In early June, City Council
approved a resolution designating the
city's Ward 4 as:
a) The Marina District;
b) The Stetson District;
c) The Tangerine Park District;
d) The 49th Street Crime District.
3. The City of St. Petersburg agreed in
May to test the waters of Clam Bayou
weekly for coliform and E. coli bacteria
because:
a) The Pinellas County Health
Department discontinued the service
many years ago;
b) The City of Gulfport agreed to pay
$20 per sample or $2,080 annually for
the service;
c) Testing is easier than stopping
the flow of trash and waste into the
bayou;
d) St. Pete wants to be a good
neighbor.

Once again, the

semi-annual Gabber

reader pop quiz

Department of Agriculture and
Consumer Services was filed in May,

profit environmental advocacy group;"
b) Is publishing false information to
the public and the media for political
gain;
c) Is lobbying, making demands, and

postponing the vote until after we
know how the legislature is going to
vote;"

where we're interested in everything
that affects the community;"

political advertising;
d) Voters in Gulfport respond to

e) Nobody knows what the March

the print quality of the newspaper;
b) A new delivery company that would
guarantee delivery of all copies of the
newspaper by 2 p.m. on Thursday;
c) For the first time ever in the history

d) A crash course in how to use "spell
check" for all of its writers, editors, and
typesetters.
Answers: 1. Not a), definitely c); b)
and d) are judgment calls. 2. c); d) is
the "bad rap" they're trying to erase.
3. a) and b); c) and d) are just cynical

with apologies to Mayor Yakes for d).
7. Take your pick; I vote for e). 8. All
the above except d), although there are
probably people who believe that it's
true, too. 9. a), b), c) and d); I hope not
e). Bonus. a), b) and c); d) has ben put
off.

Condo Complex

may have mentioned this before,
but I'm really a bit of a history
geek. I'm not talking about a
bunch of boring dates and wars -
the kind of enormously uninterest-
ing history they like to teach you
in school. What excites me is the
common stuff the kinds of things
that make you feel like you could ac-
tually step into another time like
photos, journals, and clothing. (It
doesn't even have to be that old, re-
ally. I've been known to dork out
over an original Rubik's Cube or a
Rolling Stone from 1975.) I dig old
cars especially, but my true love has
to be architecture.
I've never been abroad, but I think
I might fall into ecstatic convulsions
if I could lay my own eyes on the
Tower of London or, God help me,
the Coliseum in Rome. As it is, I live
in a 1925 bungalow that I am in love
with for its sheer, decrepit oldness.
(I also want to rip out my hair over
its sheer, decrepit oldness, but that's
another story.)
In Florida a handful of Spanish
forts notwithstanding my house
is one of the oldest things around.
Let's face it, until the marvel of air
conditioning (and serious mosquito
control), Florida real estate was un-
desirable, if not practically uninhab-
itable.
Naturally, St. Petersburg is not
exactly a mecca for historic architec-
ture, but we do have a smattering
of old buildings some of which are
actually cared for and maintained.
Others, like the woeful YMCA build-
ing downtown, have been left to
languish. Of course, there's always
hope: the Vinoy that gloriously re-
stored, carnation pink feather in St.
Pete's cap was a pathetic, aban-
doned heap for nearly twenty years
until its 93 million dollar salvation.
Big money restorations are a rare
thing, however, particularly in a
city where "historic" is a very rela-
tive designation. Who wants to
spend loads of money on a "fixer-
upper" when they could just demol-
ish a whole city block and start from


scratch? The bread-and-butter of
Florida real estate has always been
new construction and, by the looks
of downtown, high-rise condos have
at last taken over.
Have you seen these monsters?
How could you miss them, really?
And you can't walk three blocks
without coming up against a plas-
tic construction barrier advertising
some attractive, happy (and clearly,
very rich) people lounging in a mock-
up of a soon-to-be-built penthouse
suite. Since 2005, no less than 14
condominium towers (not including
Progress Energy's new office high-
rise) have been planned or complet-
ed in the downtown area. People are
actually talking about a St. Peters-
burg "skyline."
Well, no, it's hardly Chicago or
NYC. And, thanks to Albert Whit-
ted Airport and FAA restrictions,
we'll never have a behemoth like the
Chrysler building. But, from a dis-
tance, it certainly seems that there
may soon be more to characterize St.
Petersburg than the Bank of Ameri-
ca "tower" and the featureless white
lump of Tropicana Field.
While St. Petersburg is getting a
skyline that may one day be worthy
of etching on a Starbuck's mug, the
most interesting changes are actu-
ally happening on the ground. You
see, if developers want to attract
big-spending residents who can ac-
tually afford these condos, they've
got to throw in better amenities
than a pool and a view. Who wants
to drop that kind of dough when
the coolest neighborhood feature is
The Pier? (No offense to The Pier,
but honestly, we've all done enough
novelty hat shopping and fudge eat-
ing to last us until the in-laws come
back in town.)
This is where we'- the lowly ma-
jority of area residents who will
probably never even know these
condo types, let alone afford one pf
their flats get thrown a bone. You
see, these proliferating towers have
now mutated into entire comnmuni-
ties. Where once we might find only
a foreboding and lavishly guarded
front entrance, we now find welcom-
ing (if pricey) retail stores. Remem-


ber when Beach Drive was little
more than a couple of jewelry shops
and the kind of art galleries your
grandmother would like?
In one block alone, under the co-
lossal shadow of the new Parkshore
Plaza (where, according to the condo
association's website, residents en-
joy "unparalleled service and sophis-
ticated, indulgent, urban living"),
we common folk can now experience
reasonably-priced, decent dining at
the (brilliantly-named) Parkshore
Grill, a dizzying array of herbal bev-
erages at The Hooker Tea Company,
or (and, I think this is what the
Parkshore people mean when they
say "indulgent") the "Italian Gelato
Renaissance" in Paciugo Caffe.
There are dozens more condo-shops
where these came from, either open-
ing their doors, or in the works. I
have no doubt that in the next few
years you will be able to shop Baby
Gap, enjoy Seattle's Best coffee, and
register at Crate & Barrel all with-
in view of the downtown waterfront.
I never thought I'd see the day, but
St. Petersburg is fast evolving from
"God's Waiting Room" to "Yuppie
Playground."
I have to admit that the part of
me that wonders about the days
of the green benches is a little bit
heartbroken. That part of me that,
ten years ago reveled in the gritty
debauchery of Club Detroit (itself
a reincarnation of St. Pete's first
hotel, the Detroit) is sad to see an
era come to its end. In a few years,
there will be condos clamoring for
space next to the State Theater (if
the State can survive) and I'm sure
that even Janus Landing's days are
numbered.
As Florida's thirst for new construc-
tion outstrips its respect for the old,
I will simply have to satisfy myself
with the few salvaged pieces of our
past. Who knows? Maybe somebody
will restore the YMCA building.
But, after all, you can't stand in the
way of progress. And, until I can set
foot in the Sistine Chapel, I can at
least stick a spoon in some awesome
gelato.

Jeremy looked at his watch and
rolled his eyes. Where is she? But
he knew the answer, or at least
knew that he would never know the
answer. She was late, as always; the
why of it would remain a mystery to
him, as would the rest of Lydia's life.
If she says "I never know what time
it is," he thought, I'll fire her on the
spot. He knew he wouldn't, though. He
never did. But her lateness irked him
all the same.
Maybe he should just give her the
whole day off, instead of asking her
to come in for just half of it. .Sunday
hours were short, anyway noon to
6 p.m. He could easily do the whole
day himself and save himself the
aggravation. Then, with the shop
closed on Mondays and two days off in
a row, maybe she might actually show
up on time on Tuesdays.
Yeah, he thought, fat chance.
But the truth was, he liked having her
come in, liked the distraction, liked the
fact that having her around kept him
from being alone too much and from
thinking too much. The last thing he
needed was more time alone and more
time to think about the past.
Because Jeremy had been alone for
most of his 43 years, or at least felt
that he had. And the future didn't look
too promising, the way things were
going. The only exception had been his
6 years with Matt.
Jeremy grew up in small-town
South Carolina, the only child of an
austere father who taught literature
at a nearby college and a preoccupied,
unfocused mother who became even
more so after losing the baby that
would have been Jeremy's younger
brother. It's not that Jeremy thought
his parents didn't love him; he just
thought they weren't very interested.
He had friends, of course, young
playmates in the neighborhood and,
later, school chums. But at home, he
spent most of his time alone in his
room, reading or doing his homework
or daydreaming or, when he got
older, looking at home decorating


i .


Pb ver Turner



magazines. The only time he spent
with his mother was when he tagged
along on one of her frequent antiquing
excursions, and that was more about
the antiques than about being with
her. He saw his father mostly at the
dinner table, where the main topic of
conversation was usually, what else,
his school work and literature.'
So when it came time to enter
college, he fought for and won the
right to go to Chapel Hill, a big school
in the neighboring state, where he
majored in business. And then he
moved to Charleston and opened his
first shop, with some financial help
from his parents. He figured that all
those people living in all those stately,
historic homes would be ready-made
customers for the home furnishings
and collectables he wanted to sell. And
he was right; his shop was a success
from day one.
His life, not so much. He thought
that leaving home would turn things
around, but he was wrong. Loneliness
travels, he discovered. And sometimes
it pushes you into making bad
decisions.
Like Chuck. No question about it,
Chuck was a mistake. Their two-year
romance, if you can call it that, started
with a lie and ended with a lie, and
the months in between- were filled
with deception and infidelity and more
lies. But Jeremy didn't see any of it,
wouldn't let himself see any of it, until
the end. By then, it was too late.
The relationship left him feeling even
more isolated and, worse, doubting
his ability to judge people. He did 't
exactly say "never again," but he did
think that maybe Chuck would, Dr
should, be not only his first but His
last.
So he decided to stop thinking aboUt
finding someone and, instead, threw
himself into activity, anything to fill
his empty evenings the merchants'
association, the local, community
theater, charities. And in time, ,the
unthinkable happened: he fell in love.
Matt was a local artist, two years


younger than Jeremy. They met at
a charity auction for which Matt;
had donated one of his paintings.
Jeremy bought it, knowing he was
more fascinated with the artist than
with the painting. Best of all, the
artist promised to come to his home
and help him hang it. The rest, as
they say, was history.
They set up house together and
launched what, to Jeremy, were
the best six years of his life. Matt
was everything Jeremy was not:
optimistic, extroverted, gregarious,
talkative. Their life was filled with
activity, with friends, even, most
surprisingly, with intimacy. Jeremy
couldn't believe his good fortune, and
could barely accept that Matt had
chosen him to share it all with; He
practically held his breath, hoping
that it would never end.
But it did, tragically, suddenly,
with no warning at all and with no
way to prepare.
After the funeral, Jeremy closed
his shop for two weeks and drove.
He didn't know where he was going
and didn't know if he could return to
Charleston. Then halfway through
the trip, he stumbled upon Gulfport
and liked it immediately. It was
a place he thought he could call
home.
Within a day, he found a shop space
for rent on lower Beach Boulevard.
The next day, he put down a deposit.
The day after, he headed back to
Charleston to shut down his life
there and start a new one here. If
only he could say, "with never a look
back."
Jeremy shook his head. Enough, he
told himself.
He got up and headed for the back
room to pour himself another cup of
coffee, but stopped when he heard
the front door open. He turned, fully
expecting it to be Her Lateness,
spouting her usual excuses and half-
hearted apologies.
Instead, he was surprised to see two
uniformed police officers Gulfport
police officers, he knew at a glance.
And they didn't look like they were
stopping in for coffee.

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:
Interrogation.

New Legislation in Long Term Care Insurance
By Morgan Landis


The AARP, the largest organiza-
tion in the U.S. for people over 50
just selected Genworth Financial
to provide long-term care insur-
ance for it's members.
"It's very important to find an
insurer with a track record in
long-term care insurance with 15
or more years experience. Rate
stability comes with many years
of experience and keeping your
premium payments as low and as
stable as possible is good for the
client," explains Genworth repre-
sentative Tom Gregg. Genworth
has been around for almost 35
years.
That's pretty good for the 15
million customers worldwide and
now for the 70 million baby boom-
ers starting to sign up. Life expec-
tancy for the average American
is up to 77.5 years old, and about
50% of us are going to end up
needing long term care.
"It's best to get it [long term care
insurance] as young as possible- if
you wait too long it gets too ex-
pensive," said Tom. Many people
suggest starting in your 40's or
50's for the best rate, and to get
qualified, since not everyone is go-
ing to qualify for it.
The best time to start looking
into it is right now. New legisla-
tion just passed to make paying
for long term care a little easier.
A typical policy is for three years,
and paid by your personal income
and assets, but what if your policy
runs out and you run out of mon-
ey?
Medicaid doesn't pick up the
tab until you're nearly destitute;
which means you literally have al-
most nothing left for them to start
helping you out. With the cost of
nursing homes around $70,000 a
year, and the average length for
receiving home care is about 4
years, spending down your assets
happens fast.
The new legislation is called the
Florida Partnership Program. It
offers enormous incentives to pur-
chase a long-term care insurance

Gabber August 2 August 8, 2007


Tom Gregg, St. Petersburg's Genworth Financial Represenative, would love to explain


how long term care insurance can help you.
questions.

policy. It makes sure your assets
goes to ,who you want it to, and
not the nursing home bills.
How does that work? Basically,
if your benefits from the long term
care insurance are eventually ex-
hausted, you will then be eligible
for Medicaid. Your assets, equal to
the amount of benefits paid from
the long term care policy, will be
protected from "spend down" so
you can pass them on to a spouse
or other family members.
Say you purchase $200,000 in
coverage through a long-term
care insurance policy, and subse-
quently receive $200,000 in ben-
efits. You would receive $200,000
of asset protection when qualify-
ing for Medicaid.
"People think the state will take
care of them, they will but at a
cost," About half of the people in
nursing homes here in Florida are
on Medicaid Tom explained. "My
mother had to go on Medicaid; she
had a small savings account that
was paid down to $2000 to qualify
and that was all she had left when
she passed away."
This is why Tom became a
Genworth representative. He be-
came.a long-term care insurance
specialist wanting to help more

Give him a call and he'll answer all your

people understand their options,
especially with the Partnership
program. So for the last year Tom
has been sitting down with people
just like you, .and letting them
know the good news.
"It's a complex issue. It's best
to sit someone down in person so
they know their options and figure
out if long term care insurance is
best for them," said Tom. Since he
is a resident of Gulfport, he is well
aware of everything you need to
know about long term care insur-
ance in Florida. He is also easily
accessible.
