Gulfport May Pass
Permits to County
Gulfport city council is considering con-
tracting out services for issuing building
permits and inspections to the county, al-
though there are a number of outstanding
questions which may affect the decision.
During recent budget workshops, council
directed City Manager Tom Brobeil to look
into having the county assume responsibili-
ty for issuing building permits and conduct-
ing inspections, both services which the city
currently provides. It is anticipated that the
move would eliminate three city employee
positions and potentially save the city mon-
ey even with the loss of permitting fees.

Dana Casper of Gulfport gives her 2 1/2 year old
son Jackson his first inside view of a police car.
Casper, her husband Chip and Jackson, toured
the Gulfport police department last Tuesday dur-
ing the annual National Night Out event. G. Curt
Willocks, director of public safety for Gulfport
said that the event was moved to city hall this
year because of budget cuts.
"By having the event at the department we
didn't have to spend any money on overtime,"
said Willocks. "Everyone working the event
would have already been working their regular
shifts. With budgets are tight as they are right
now, every bit helps. On the upside, it also gave
residents a great opportunity to see the inner
-workings of their police department and ask
questions of staff which they might not other-
wise have had a chance to ask."

Budget Process Begins
By Greg Stemm
Gulfport City Council has begun the arduous
task of formulating a new city budget amid recent
changes in property tax laws and uncertainties
about further cuts which may be on the horizon af-
ter the scheduled January election.
Three budget workshops for council members
have already taken place and one more is sched-
uled before the two public hearings in September.
The first workshop took place on August 2, the sec-
ond on August 9 and the third on Tuesday. The
next and last workshop is scheduled for August 23.
While the sessions have been open to the public for
review, input from the public will not be heard un-
til the September hearings.
Because council has rolled back the property tax
collected to the amount for the 2006/07 and then
reduced it by another 9%, as directed by the latest
action in Tallahassee, there is an $810,000 short-
fall in the proposed budget for next year. The bud-
get workshops are attempts by council to outline
various approaches to make up for this shortfall,
See Budget, page 28





Drunk Driver Takes
Patrol Cars Out
As Gulfport Police investigated a
possible domestic disturbance earli-
er this month, an intoxicated driver
ran into their two patrol cars on 28th
Avenue South. No one was hurt, but
both cars got damaged badly and are
currently out of service.
Gulfport PD, Pinellas County Sher-
iffs Office and St. Pete PD worked to-
gether to prevent a civil disturbance
at 801 49th Street South. One ar-
rest was made for a warrant. Large
crowds were gathered on both sides
of 49th Street. Due to large law en-
forcement presence, the crowd even-
tually dispersed.

We've Got a Friend in
West Virginia
A West Virginia family, here for
the Southern Regional Little League
Championship Series, found them-
selves in, a real bind with serious car
troubles upon arrival. After learning
of the problem, Mayor Yakes sent
them to local garage, Reed Car Care
on 58th Street just south of the ball
field. Once he learned of the family's
plight, owner David Reed, put his
other work aside to help the baseball
family. Upon inspection and testing,
Mr. Reed found multiple problems
and estimated that the parts alone
would total more than $1,000, which
was more than the traveling family
could afford'. Mr. Reed took on the job
to make the necessary repairs and
get the family back on the road any-
way.
Knowing his fellow Gulfport resi-
dents and businesspeople as well as
he does, Mayor Yakes was confident
that the community would come to-
gether to assure this family would
have a safe vehicle for the long ride
home. Councilmember Bob Wor-
thington went out and asked of our
community to help with the bills for
our out of town family in need. The
Gulfport American Legion, Andy An-
derson Post #125 and its Ladies Aux-
iliary came through in a big way with
a combined contribution of $550. Our
very own Gulfport Historical Society,
Charles L. Locke, CPA and four Gulf-
port citizens who wished to remain
anonymous, donated enough money
to pay for all the parts.
Mr. Reed, very happy and proud of
the community's helpful spirit said

It seems like we are heading backward as a society
not forward when we have record breaking fiscal
years of profit for the OIL companies yet we the
public suffer at the gas pump. It is not only record
gas prices, many items have increased at an
ALARMING RATE; items such as PROPERTY TAXES,
HOMEOWNER'S INSURANCE, AUTO INSURANCE,
HEALTH CARE, PRESCRIPTION DRUGS and espe-
cially FOOD COSTS. These are items that people
use regularly but are not used to factor inflation.
Government statistics would have us believing
inflation is barely existent! Bought food or gasoline
lately? AND DON'T FORGET INCREASING FEES AT
LOCAL BANKS. It's amazing, here we go again! Pay
attention over the next few months as you will
witness another series of new banks in our area.
IT'S TIME TO HOLD ON AND GET BACK TO THE
BASICS.

1. The only way to accumulate wealth is to live
within your means, and possibly cut back due to
huge increases in the cost of living.
2. Basic financial planning has become more
sophisticated and yet people have to invest conser-
vative due to low bank interest rates while banks
and oil companies make record profits.
3. I recommend that retirees invest prudently and,
have a comfort level of how their money will be
working for them with the investments they now
have.
4. With this chaos, we as a society have become
desensitized and have forgotten to realize history
repeats itself.
5. I recommend finding a qualified Financial
Advisor who will have your best interests at heart.

At Conley Financial Services, we believe an
educated client is the best client, so my clients have
a comfort level knowing their money is working as
hard for them as they did for it.

Working with a financial advisor should be strongly
considered. At Conley Financial Services we can
recommend an accountant for tax advice as well as
an attorney for legal advice.






Recognizing Seaworthy Citizens

Gulfport to members of the Boca Ciega Yacht Club Sea Scouts Ship 915 at last Tuesday's
council meeting. Yates noted that these dedicated young adults have given over 250 hours
to teaching and learning how to sail better, skills he said that instill leadership, team building
and motivation. Pictured from left to right are Karissa Kasper, 15, of St. Petersburg; Chip-

Donate to Fishermen
Lost at Sea Memorial
Historic John's Pass will be the site
of a long overdue "Florida Fishermen
Lost at Sea" memorial, dedicated to
the hundreds of Central West Florida
fishermen who have lost their lives
over the years.
"Many fishing communities in
North America have a memorial for
our fishermen that fish their lives
in this dangerous profession dedi-
cated, to bringing fresh seafood to
our tables," notes Capt. Mark Hub-
bard, president and general manager
of Hubbard's Marina fishing opera-
tions.
"A fund-raising campaign is under-
way to build a fitting memorial to
these many brave fishermen," Mark
Hubbard adds. "Our goal for the Flor-
ida Fishermen Lost at Sea memorial
is $50,000 and as of early August, a
total of more than $16,000 has been
collected, with a boost from profits at
the recent John Levique Days Festi-
val at John's Pass Village."
Florida Fishermen Lost at Sea is a
not for profit organization with all
donations tax deductible. For more
information contact Capt. Mark Hub-
bard at 393-1947, Ext. 1418.

Kayaks, Others Launch
from Gulfport Beach
By resolution, Gulfport city council
opened the beach area at a location
to be designated near the Recreation
Center at the corner of Shore Boule-
vard and 58th Street South for the
launch of kayaks, canoes and other
similar watercraft. It was a move
long championed by many such resi-
dent enthusiasts.
The resolution states that the ex-
act area will be determined by the
city's department of leisure services
staff, within the general area located
near the parameters mentioned ear-
lier. The vessels will be limited to
human-powered, non-mechanized,
non-motorized kayaks, canoes, or
dinghies or other such craft, not to
exceed ten feet in length.
Vehicles and trailers will not be
permitted to travel beyond the exist-
ing street curb and will also not be
permitted to enter the right of way,
sidewalk and public beach area.

Traffic Light Authority
Given to County
. Gulfport city council approved a
resolution last Tuesday which gave
over authority for traffic signals
within the corporate limits of the
city to Pinellas County. The change
will go into effect as soon as it is ap-
proved by the County.
The City of Gulfport already has an
ongoing Interlocal Agreement with
Pinellas County for maintenance
and repair of traffic control signals
and devices which was renewed on
March 21, 2006. The county cur-
rently maintains four fully function-
ing traffic signals and four flash-
ing beacons that the city currently
owns.
The terms of the new agreement
state that:
1. The county will manage, oper-
ate and maintain the Countywide
ATMS/ITS (Advanced Traffic Man-
agement System) through the Coun-
ty .public works department under
the county administrator, and have
the authority to accomplish county
wide regional operation of traffic
signals and related intelligent trans-
portation systems.
2. Pinellas County will fund the im-


plementation of Countywide ATMS/
ITS
3. Pinellas County will fund, admin-
ister, staff, operate and maintain
the Primary Control Center (PCC),
which will house new ATMS/ITS
system
4. The city will transfer operation,
maintenance and traffic control re-
sponsibility to ATMS/ITS corridors
to Pinellas County as they come on-
line to the new ATMS (phased ap-
proach).
5. After signals are transferred the
new system, the city will no longer
be responsible for paying mainte-
nance, operation, power or engineer-
ing related studies.
6. Pinellas County will establish a
PCC advisory committee to provide
multi-jurisdictional policy and pro-

The Monday Blues


ening iviagee playing me oiues on nis guitar ana cymDals at me peninsula inn.


By Morgan Landis

On a breezy Monday evening I sit
eating on the porch of the Peninsula
Inn. I'm in a conversation with my
dinner companion when I notice my
foot tapping. The music has started.
I am here to listen to the famous
Sterling Magee, who in early years
was known Five Fingers Magee, but
became famous with his two man
band Adam and Satan, in which of the
two, he called himself Satan.
Magee grew up playing many instru-
ments, including the piano, which his
mother made him play gospel music
on. Whenever she would leave the
room, he would start playing 'the
devil's music' and she was never too
happy about that. Maybe that's where
the nickname Mr. Satan came from.
One can never be sure though. Ma-
gee was found several years ago at the
Boca Ciega Assisted Living Facility.
He didn't remember much, although
you could tell there was music in his
body.
"I would walk in and Sterling would
be bopping his feet and strumming
his fingers to some imaginary instru-
ment,"' said the previous Boca Ciega
Activities Director and now Magee's
Manager/Roadie Kevin Moore. One
day curiosity got the best of him and
he looked Magee up online; no one
knew there was a famous blues musi-
cian sitting in their very lobby.
Gabber August 16 August 22, 2007


After a brief stint in the Navy, Ma-
gee moved to New York and worked
with some of the legendary musi-
cians of his time; The Supremes,
Marvin Gaye, Etta James and even
played with U2 on their album and
documentary "Rattle and Hum." He
quit the business and moved onto the
streets of Harlem to become a "soap-
box preacher and environmental phi-
losopher," according to Adam Gussow
in his book Mr. Satan's Apprentice.
That's where Gussow found Magee
playing his guitar and simple percus-
sions, and Gussow decided to break
out his harmonica and join in on the
magical journey.
That journey included a few albums,
playing in blues festivals around the
world, and even made it on the cov-
er of Living Blues magazine. After
all this, the duo hit a rough patch in
1998 when Magee suddenly dropped
numerous scheduled gigs. Gussow
thought it was some sort of mental
breakdown. Magee's family resides in
St. Petersburg, Florida which is prob-
ably how he ended up here.
"Every day, every day I have the
blues," Magee starts to sing in front of
his band made by local Gulfport musi-
cians. His voice rich, powerful, soulful.
Every second of his 70 years on earth
is in his voice. Hearing him is know-
ing him the details aren't there, but
every memory is sewn into his words.
The band behind him consists of Da-


vid Laycock on drums, Keith Stillwag-
on on harmonica, and Gene Stone on
keyboard. Although it may not be the
same caliber of music played on old
time Harlem streets, it certainly has a
pull and lull that quiets every conver-
sation at the Peninsula Inn. People
walking by on Beach Boulevard stop
to see who is calling to the crowd in
such an enigmatic voice.
What they see is an old man, with
missing teeth, and his tongue sticking
out during the musical jam. Magee
also looks as if he's been on this earth
for 70 years, but I think the band be-
hind him keeps him young. The group
he's surrounded with has so much en-
thusiasm and pride for what he does,
and that they get to be around him,
that it's hard not to feel excited just
being in his presence. I had a chance
during one of the musical breaks to sit
down and talk to Magee, although I
wasn't able to get very much talking
in. Magee has many fans increas-
ingly every Monday he plays- and he
talks to every one of them.
"Thank you Sir," Magee responds to
another compliment. He's sitting next
to me smoking and drinking as he
tells bits and pieces about his child-
hood. Magee answers every question I
ask slowly, like has to pull it from
some deep closet, but he's quick to
smile and laugh at anything. I enjoy
just sitting next to him; it feels good
just to see how his smile has an effect
on everyone.
It looks like Magee's journey isn't
close to being over. He's been in touch
with his old partner Gussow, who is
setting up a European Tour for next
summer so the two can play at some
of their old stomping grounds. Gus-
sow is also joining Magee at the Sara-
sota's Blues Festival on November
3rd. If you don't see the Magee play at
the Peninsula Inn on Monday nights,
and if haven't read the book Mr. Sa-
tan's Apprentice and you want to see
the wild journey yourself, a documen-
tary is being released at Sundance in
February.
I have already checked out the trail-
er at Magee's myspace (www.mys-
pace.com/sterlingsatanmagee) and I
am awed at the life this man has led.
I wish I could have seen him back in
Harlem, with his guitar and his art,
but it's hard not to like what I hear
now. The band is playing again, Ma-
gee singing another blues song, and I
let myself slide into his music, where
all his memories lay.

Relocating Sanitation
Gulfport City Council recently
asked city staff to look at moving the
Sanitation Division from its present
location at the City Yard to the prop-
erty behind the Neighborhood Cen-
ter on 49th Street. In reviewing the
feasibility of moving the Sanitation
Division, the staff also explored ways
to house the Public Works and Parks
Divisions operations in the future.
City staff asked a consultant (TBE)
to provide cost estimates and a con-
ceptual site plan to duplicate the
Sanitation Division's operation at the
City Yard (Phase 1), and to design a
site plan to further accommodate the
rest of the Public Works and Parks
Divisions (Phase 2).
While TBE estimated that .moving
the Sanitation Division could cost
almost $1.5 million, city staff thinks
that costs could feasibly run up to
half a million dollars less.

We all know 'that the war in
Iraq has become increasingly
controversial, unpopular,
divisive you supply the adjective of
your choice. But who knew that a bit
of the aforementioned controversy
would be played out on the stage of
our own Catherine Hickman Theater.
That's what happened last month
when the Gulfport Community
Players put on their annual Summer
One-Act Festival a collection of eight
short plays, all of them written by
local authors.
Seven of the plays were comedies, the
usual fare at these summer events.
One was not. It was a 20-minute
musical called "Fallout!" that was
written by Gil Perlroth.
You may be familiar with Perlroth's
work. His musicals have been
produced here in Gulfport ("God Only
Knows" and "Dancing with You")
and in numerous other locations
around the bay area, not to mention
the Northeast and elsewhere. He's a
known quantity in these parts.
But this time, he offered something
different, something that at least some
people were not ready for, something
that some of them were apparently
not willing to accept. His 20-minute
musical was about the cost of war.
Not monetary cost, human cost.
Through dialog and four songs,
"Fallout" tells the story of three
people who are profoundly affected
by an unnamed war: Jimmy, a young
soldier who goes' off to fight and
comes home terribly injured; Laura,
his young wife who objects to a war
she doesn't believe in; and Rebecca,
his mother who considers herself a
patriot and supports the war and her
son's participation in it.
You can see from that brief synopsis
that this show was no comedy, and that
it very astutely sums up the conflict
here at home over the war in Iraq,
even though it never mentions Iraq by
name. That conflict was mirrored in


The war comes

VIEWPOINT


the audience.
Perlroth says the play is not anti-war,
that it's just about "how the war affects
one little family in the Midwest." He
also says that he feels he treated the
two sides on the war "fairly."
Apparently the play-reading
committee that chose to include it
in the summer production agreed.
According to Eileen Navarro, who
chaired the selection committee,
"everyone bn the committee felt that
all sides were represented ... that no
one was burning flags."
True enough.
I didn't see the play but I've read it,
courtesy of the author, who loaned me
a copy of the script. Both sides are,
indeed, represented, with the mother
on one side and the wife on the other,
and with the young man just wanting
to do his duty but paying the price.
But I also have to say that I can't
imagine anyone reading or seeing
this play and coming away with the
impression that it is pro-war this
war or any war.
And apparently the audiences
agree, because, from what I've been
told, there were mixed reactions at
some performances. Some audience
members simply withheld their
applause. A few walked out, although
I believe it was only a handful. And
at least one audience member, a
woman, refused to shake the hands
of the "Fallout!" cast members in the
receiving line after the show.
That woman was Marge Milford.
"I have heard, over and over, from
so many politicians and outspoken
people," she says, "who tell us that we
must bring our troops home, we don't
belong there, we should leave that part
of the world alone, it's a civil war, it's
none of our business. Then we went to
the play and paid to listen to someone
say, why can't we 'just get along' with
those people?"
"It makes me sad," she continues,
"when something happens to our


troops who are giving so much to
defend our way of life, yet helping
other people they don't even know to
live safer lives. Our troops all seem
to understand why they are there.
Why can't we, who are safe at home,
see that too? It's better to be fighting
on their land than on ours, here at
home."
Ed Stevens, who directed the play, says
that he was "proud" to do so, not just
because it tackled the "biggest issue
of this nation, right now, but because
it was well-written, emotionally
powerful, and dramatically effective.
The play presented strong differences
of opinion, with the central conflict of
the play between a soldier's wife and
mother."
"The conclusion of the play," he
says, "with the soldier's life-changing
injuries spelling the end of the life he
had planned, is clearly anti-war. But
has any important play or serious
work of art ever been pro-war?" Then
he adds, "Any play that does not
leave the audience upset, challenged,
provoked, inspired, educated or
changed in some way is not worth its
greasepaint."
There you have it, two sides of the
coin called "Fallout!" Or maybe you'd
prefer to call it "war," or even "the war
in Iraq."
As for the author, he's not dealing,
much, with the little controversy he
stirred up in Gulfport in the middle
of July. He's too busy expanding his
20-minute musical into a full-length,
2-act version that he hopes will be
ready for a full-scale production
somewhere soon. Then maybe we can
all see it and decide for ourselves if
it's anti-war or fair and balanced or
thought provoking or upsetting or
any other adjective we might want to
apply, after the fact.
In the meantime, I'll leave you with
the final words of the last song that
the injured soldier, his wife and his
mother sang at the conclusion of the
show:
But wars survive
The passing years
Each time more sorrow
Each time more tears
Each time more grieving
Than the time before
Until the world
Can take no more
Until the world
Can take no more

RUSHS ,

A satirical look at the world around us. By Anne Rush

Name That Bank!


I, m offering a contest to our read-
ers to name the next bank.
You see, AmSouth has now
been bought out by or changed their
name to Regions, and as a consumer,
I just can't keep up with all the name
changes. I suspect it may be a con-
spiracy between the check printing
and debit card manufacturing busi-
nesses, but I can't prove it.
In the case of AmSouth, I suppose
the change to Regions is probably
good. I doubt that AmSouth had a
branch in Vermont or that Bank At-
lantic had one in California, so Re-
gions probably covers everything.
But still, the confusion of it all.
Don't quote me or hold me account-
able for this, but I'm thinking that
Barnett became Huntington then
First Union and now Wachovia.
When I first moved here in 1985, I
banked at Sun Bank. I got a kick out
of it. You'd never find a Sun Bank in


the name was pretty cool.
I guess the straw that broke my
back was when SunBank changed
their name to SunTrust. Because I
don't trust any bank.
I actually argued with my current
bank over free checking. A box of 200
checks costs $14. The bank wouldn't
pay for them. My argument to them
was that by paying for them up front,
chances are really good that at least
twice during the year, I might get
burned by the debit card and bounce
two of them and at $32 a pop, they'd
come out ahead. Do the.math. $14 for
a box of checks, pretty much guaran-
teed residual income of $64, so they
should actually look at it as an in-
vestment with a $50 return. Imagine
a bank not understanding the con-
cept of an investment.
My favorite thing with banks lately
is the $5 charge for cashing a check
at their institution if you don't have

But anyway, back to the contest,

Why, I once found a CornerStone
bank in the middle of a strip mall

consignment shop and a pizza joint.

ask yourself whose brain child Fifth/

and Nuwara Eliya with 80 activist
women who were interested in learn-
ing the tactics behind advocating and
establishing business contacts with
their governmental authorities. The
mission statement as set out by In-
ternational Republican Institute, a
non-partisan organization, focuses on
advancing democracies world-wide.
Political participation in Sri Lanka is
driven largely by patronage and per-
sonal gain rather than representation,
which serves to disengage the popula-
tion from the democratic process. The
women participants said "Enough
is enough; our elected officials must
learn to listen to the people, and we
must educate them!"
Leslie Waters is available to present
"democracy training" presentations to

our citizens at all levels of government
provide to new and evolving democra-
cies around the world. Ms. Waters

Gulfport Approved School Resource
Officer for Boca Ciega High School


Gulfport city police will provide
a School Resource Officer (SRO) to
Boca Ciega High School after the
Pinellas County Sheriffs office re-
cently declined to provide services
in incorporate areas for less than
one hundred percent of the deputies
annual salary in light of recent and
proposed budget cuts. In the past
the Sheriffs office had been provid-
ing two SROs to Boca Ciega High
School at a cost of approximately
one half of each deputy's annual sal-
ary.
The Pinellas County School Board
Police Chief recently approached
the Gulfport Police Department and
advised that the Pinellas County
School Board would fund only SRO
at each school. The compensation
offered would be $49,011.50.
The cost of assigning a Gulfport
city police officer with 5% assign-
ment pay, including benefits as of
October 1, 2007 is $51,748 so the
cost to the city will be approximate-


ly $2737. The assignment will also
result in normal scheduled overtime
for school events including athletic
games and other after hour func-
tions. The School Board has agreed
to compensate the city for these ad-
ditional hours.
The officer assigned to become an
SRO will also be available to the city
in times of emergencies, and during
holiday breaks and summer vaca-
tion.
"While it is the position of the staff
that this service is ancillary to our
mission, the students, faculty, staff
and visitors of Boca Ciega High
School are nonetheless within our
service population and have a rea-
sonable expectation of our services,"
said G. Curt Willocks, director of
public safety. "The option of not
having an SRO for the Boca Ciega
student population is not a prudent
one, either for the school or the city,"
he concluded.

Budget, from front page

and to plan for additional cuts if
proposed amendments are passed
by voters this winter. Council hopes
to have a number of proposed action
alternatives in place prior to public
input this fall.
In the first of the budget work-
shops, Tom Brobeil, city manager,
gave the council a PowerPoint pre-
sentation "primer" on how to use the
budget document, an outline of the
problems presented by HB-1B (the
recent state legislative action affect-
ing property taxes), a few options
for balancing the budget, some sce-
narios showing the financial impact
of certain proposed solutions and a
rough outline of his recommenda-
tions. The presentation focused
mainly on bringing the council up
to speed on what the key issues are
and how to read and interpret the
budget's various components.
"At the end of this workshop you
should have the same general work-
ing knowledge of the budget as I do,"
Brobeil told council.
In the second two workshops, dis-
cussions have become more focused
on identifying which elements of the
budget will have the most impact
on reducing or reallocating spend-
ing while minimizing the impact of
possible staff reductions or cuts in
city services. Much of the discus-
sion to date has been on the use of
"PILOT" (payment on lieu of taxes)
from various city enterprise funds to
offset cuts in the general fund. Spe-
cific plans discussed have included a
7.5% PILOT from each of the city's


enterprise funds (the Marina, Sani-
tation, and Utilities) versus the im-
pact of a proposed 10% PILOT for all
or some of the funds.
Moving monies from enterprise
funds to the general fund can have
impacts ranging from rate increases
to having more or less money avail-
able in contingency in case of emer-
gencies such as hurricanes or other
disasters.
A 7.5% PILOT from all three en-
terprise funds would result in a
transfer of $573,056 toward the gen-
eral fund, still leaving a balance of
$236,944 to cover through cuts or
other proposed budget .alterations.
Changing the PILOT to 10% for the
Marina would up the revenue trans-
ferred to $612,712, but still leave
$197,288 to cover.
So far Vice Mayor Ted Phillips,
Council member Michele King and
Mayor Michael Yates seem to fa-
vor a 10% PILOT from the Marina
and 7.5% from other funds. Coun-
cilmember Bob Worthington wants
7.5% across the board and Council
member Mary Stull appears to be
undecided.
Much of the council's questions
and discussion to date have centered
arQund the Marina, which has also
included conversations about large
rate increases as well as the PILOT
proposals. Brobeil told council in
the second workshop that Gulfport
has the lowest municipal marina
rates in Pinellas County. Proposals
on the table right now may increase
those fees by up to 30% or more,
but with the highest impact being
on non-resident fees. There have

also been discussions about the cur-
rent contract with Boca Ciega Yacht
Club which holds a lease for 56 slips
as well as a storage facility for up to
75 trailers. The current lease runs
through 2010, but there has been
some discussion among the council
about approaching the Yacht Club
with possible options for increasing
fees or other renegotiations of the
current contract.
Other discussions to date have
included a proposal to contract out
building permitting and inspections
to the county. Brobeil has requested
more information from the county
about what the specifics of such a
transferred would include, both in
terms of logistical changes and rate
fee structures. The current under-
standing is that the proposal would
eliminate up to three city employee
positions and might include sig-
nificant service changes from what
residents and local contractors have
-enjoyed from the city.
Brobeil is also recommending us-
ing $100,000 from the over funded
General Employee Pension Fund to-
ward the budget deficit. Brobeil told
council that the fund currently is
over funded by about a half million
dollars so that payments like these
could help offset shortfalls if they oc-
cur over the next five budget years.
Most proposed staff reductions in
the current budget come from not
filling currently vacant positions
and/or not filling additional posi-
tions as they are vacated by attri-
tion or retirement. Cost of Living
Adjustments (COLAs) have been
eliminated.
At the second budget workshop
council was also presented with an
outline they had requested from
Brobeil detailing some of the issues
which might be associated with a
proposal to combine the positions of
city attorney with that of city clerk
or to hire a full time city attorney in-
stead of contracting with one as the
city current does.
Brobeil told council that he does not
think that those proposed changes
should be considered budget cutting
in nature.

fiscal year budget for Gulfport are

Public Comment

& Council Quotes

Excerpts heard at the Gulfport Council Meeting
I would suggest we move the public session of the Community Rede-
velopment Agency meetings to the end of the meeting to be consistent
with the format of city council Donna Spano, acting city clerk

I'm surprised we didn't throw them out on their ear when they sug-
gested this consider our history with this issue. Council member Bob
Worthington regarding the resolution authorizing the placement of a Stu-
dent Resource Officer in Boca Ciega High School through the Gulfport Police
Department. There were issues several years ago with the Sheriffs depart-
ment regarding SRO placements.

Gulfport should consider adopting a sister city one whose goals and
missions are similar to our own. Carol D'Allassandro, resident address-
ing council after presented a flag to them stating "PACE" or "peace" in Ital-
ian. D'Allassandro and her partner had just returned from an extended visit
to Italy.

;We both think a parking workshop is in order. We were out 'walking
the streets' the other day and it occurred to us that there would be a
lot more parking available on Shore east of the Casino if that were
made one way. There are other issues regarding both day to day park-
ing and parking at special events that we need to address. -Lori Ross,
president of the Gulfport Chamber of Commerce and owner of the Seabreeze'
Manor Bed & Breakfast and Mary O'Malley, owner of Reef Dog Gifts'

Jeremy sighed when Pendergast
finally left the shop, the last of
the group to leave.. In fact, he
had practically shoved him out the
door not the usual way to treat
customers, but then, this was hardly
a "usual" day.
Burnard had been the first to leave.
After answering a few more questions,
he had been dismissed by the police
and couldn't wait to get out the door.
Jeremy understood. Being questioned
by the police could be unsettling for
anyone, especially an introvert like
Burnard. Hell, it was disturbing for
Jeremy.
Then the detectives had questioned
Lydia,. who answered in volumes.
"Oh, yes, I knew the girl, poor thing.
She came in here several times, lovely
girl, really, but shy, seemed to want
attention. Wore too much makeup, I
think, for my taste. Could have used
a bit of advice from another woman,
but it wasn't my place, you know.
She never bought anything, probably
couldn't afford it. She looked at the
jewelry a lot, though. That was the
main thing in here that attracted her,
the jewelry. Coveted it, I think. I felt
sorry for her, actually, tried to chat
her up a bit. But it wasn't easy. She
was very quiet. And then this awful
thing happened, didn't it?"
When the police were finished
with her, or she had worn them out,
Jeremy wasn't sure which, they, too,
had left, leaving only Pendergast,
who blustered all the way as he got
the bum's rush out the door.
"Such. a shame," Lydia said, shaking
her head slowly, "Such a shame, and
so young, too."
Jeremy had had all the talk about
murder victims he could stand for one
day, so he changed the subject.
"How was your dinner last night
with George Ardis?" he asked.
Lydia's eyes widened, obviously
surprised that Jeremy had
remembered. "Keeping track of my
social life, are you?"
36


t." i ' '' '


by Roger Turner



"Might as well," he answered, "since
it's more exciting than my own."
She laughed. "Well, in that case," she
said, "I guess it's all right to tell you
that La Fogata was wonderful, that
the food was delicious and plentiful,
that George had too much to drink
and," reaching up to touch one of the
diamonds sparkling in her ears, "that
I earned every penny he spent on
these earrings."
Jeremy raised his eyebrows. "You
mean that..."
Lydia cut him off. "Bite you tongue,"
she said, "and shame on you for even
thinking such a thing." Then she'
added with a spark in her eye, "It
would take much more than a pair of
earrings for that." r v
With that bit of information ringing
in his ears, Jeremy excused himself
and headed outside, wishing he hadn't
quit smoking. If ever a day called for
a cigarette, this was it.
Doubly so when he got outside
and Lavery the tailor rushed over,
acting, most uncharacteristically,
like Jeremy was his long lost friend,
like there was no one in the world he|
would rather talk to. ,
"Have the police been in to see yo.'
he asked gushed, actually. "Did they:
ask you about the murdered girl? Did..
they question you, too?"
Jeremy nodded. "Of course," he.
said. "They're questioning everybody,
I think. At least that's what they;
said."
Somehow, Lavery managed to both
nod his head and shake it, too, all at
the same time.
"I've never seen anything like it,"
Lavery said. "In all my.years, here,
I've never been treated like this. Never
even had a policeman in my shop,
except once when someone broke in
my back door. That was three years
ago and, even then, it was like pulling
teeth to get them to come down here
and do something. They're never
around when you need them. Then
today they march in here like they


own the place, like I'm not the one
who pays the rent, and treat me like
I'm some kind of criminal, like I'm not
even an upstanding citizen, like I'm a
member of al-Qaida, or something. I
can't believe it. After all these years,
I'm some kind of criminal."
Jeremy couldn't resist. "Well," he
said, "I don't think you have anything
to worry about as long as you didn't
kill that girl."
Lavery glared at him, then turned
on his heal and walked away.
Beam me up, Scotty, Jeremy thought.
Now's the time to beam me up.

It was closing time and Jeremy,
as usual, offered Lydia a ride home.
She, as usual, said, "No, thank you,"
this time adding, "my boyfriend is
meeting me at The Peninsula for a
drink." Then she grabbed her purse
from under the counter and headed
out the door, turning north up Beach
Boulevard.
But when she got to The Peninsula,
she ignored the diners and other
people gathered on the porch and
deliberately walked past, continuing
up to 28th Avenue, the street in
front of the library. There she turned
right, crossed Beach Boulevard, then
turned left and continued up the
northbound side of Beach Boulevard
until she reached the bus stop shelter
at 27th Avenue. She glanced back
down the street, then quickly ducked
into the shelter and sat with her back
to oncoming traffic, just in case.
When the bus came, she got on, paid
her dollar, and rode up 58th Street
and onto 15th Avenue, where .she
got off at the bus stop closest to 54th
Street.
Well aware that the murdered girl
had lived only 3 or 4 blocks up 54th,.
she intentionally walked east to 53rd
Street, then turned north and walked
the two blocks to her house on the
corner.
When she reached her door, she
glanced around out of habit, then
inserted the key, let herself in and
closed the door behind her. Breathing
a sign of relief, she called out, "Hello,
sweetheart, I'm home."

This is a work of fiction. The events,
the people and, especially, the victims
are all fictional as well. No similarity
to realpeople or real events is intended.

YOU & THE

L AW)

What Steps Are Involved in
the Probate Process
(Part II)
3. Appointing the Personal Repre-
sentative
The court authorizes a Personal
Representative to administer the
deceased's estate. A Personal Repre-
sentative, also called an executor/
executrix, assumes the responsibil-
ity for closing an estate as soon as
possible in an effort to distribute the
estate's assets to those who right-
fully inherit them without delay.
This person is critical to the probate
process.
Personal Representatives have
a legal obligation to perform their
duties honestly and efficiently. The
heirs to an estate can hold a Per-
sonal Representative personally ac-


1

countable for harming the estate's
financial standing by neglect or de-
liberate action.
A will typically names the de-
ceased's choice for Personal Repre-
sentative, and Probate Courts will
normally honor this choice. When no
will exists, or if the Personal Repre-
sentative named in the will declines
to serve or cannot serve, the court
has the authority to appoint a Per-
sonal Representative. Once the Per-
sonal Representative is appointed,
the Probate Court recognizes the
Personal Representative's authority
to act on behalf of the deceased's es-
tate. The Court issues a document,
called "letters of adminis tration "
identifying the Personal Representa-
tive as the estate's official represen-
tative. A Personal Representative
can show this document to a bank
officer, for example, to gain access to
a checking account.
Needless to say, the Personal Rep-
resentative should be a trusted fam-
ily member or close friend who will
act to carry out the wishes of the de-
ceased.

A person who decides that he/
she does not want to be a Personal
Representative can decline the ap-
pointment. A back-up, or successor,
Personal Representative is then ap-
pointed. Similarly, if the Personal
Representative feels that the job in-
volves more effort than one person
can handle, the Court may appoint a
co-Personal Representative.
4. Informing the Affected Parties
The Personal Representative is re-
sponsible for formal notification and
the publishing of public notices in
newspapers to inform potential heirs
and creditors about the probate pro-
ceeding. After giving notice, waiting
periods follow. Creditors, heirs, and
others can file their claims against
the estate during these periods of
time.

Permits, from front page
Brobeil told council on August 9 that he had been in contact with county officials
and they were open to the idea in principle. Brobeil requested a copy of the stan-
dard interlocal agreement the county uses with a number of other municipalities
in Pinellas County. A number of smaller municipalities, including many located on
the beaches, utilize the county as a permitting and inspection source.
What was not clear, until the contract is received, is what responsibilities council
would have of site plan review, how much of the permit issuing process could be
done by phone without a trip to Clearwater, how services might differ for residents
from what they currently expect and how certain issues such as the overlay district
might be affected.
While Brobeil may make a presentation to council at the next workshop sched-
uled for August 23 if the requested contract has arrived and council has a chance
to review it, no decisions by council are likely before public hearings regarding the
,budget process schedule to take place in September.

I think most of all you would just love
to know all the people who come up

we miss her too." So, I have accom-

SPORTS FACT

Instant replay debuts at 2006 U.S. Open
tennis tournament
In 2006, the U.S. Open became the first grand slam tennis tournament
to use instant replay to review line calls. The technology, called Hawk-
Eye, is available only at two venues, Arthur Ashe and Louis Armstrong
stadiums, at the USTA National Tennis Center in Flushing Meadows, N.Y.,
where the U.S. Open is held. Once a player challenges a line judge's call,
a 3-D computer simulation based on multiple high-speed video cameras
is shown to the players, umpires and audience on the stadium video boards.
The chair judge decides whether the initial line call was correct. Each
player is allowed two challenges per set, plus one more during a tiebreak.
During the 2006 U.S. Open, about 31
percent of line calls challenged by men
were reversed and 36 percent of
calls challenged by women
were overturned.

Gulfport Beach July Water Quality Report

By Cathy Salustri
Each week the City of Gulfport tests the water quality
in the waters off Gulfport Beach. The City has contracted
with the City of St. Petersburg for the tests.
Every month The Gabber publishes 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 -I
within a week of taking the sample.
Currently, the City tests for two things: enterococcus and
fecal coliform. Scientists consider enterococcus a common 10
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-
cus as the standard. Fecal coliform also comes from the
waste of warm-blooded animals, including humans.
The City of Gulfport currently tests for both types of bac- Sample
teria. Test results will help classify Gulfport Harbor as Date
"good", "moderate", or "poor". Enterococcus of less than 35 July 2
parts per 100 milliliter and fecal coliform of less than 199 July 10
per 100 milliliter of saltwater indicate good water qual- July 17
ity.
For more information, contact the City of Gulfport at July 26
893-1000. You can reach Cathy Salustri at CathySalus-

WiFi: Why Should
By Shelly Wilson
There's a lot of talk about WiFi these
days. Whether you're passing by a
coffee shop, or watching TV, it seems
there are endless come-ons for WiFi
internet access. But what is WiFi?
The short answer is that it stands
for Wireless Fidelity. In itself, this
is a meaningless term a play on.
HiFi, or High Fidelity audio quality
which dates back to the 1950s. WiFi,
- however, has nothing to do with audio
fidelity or, for that matter, fidelity of
any kind.
The key component to WiFi is the
"wireless." Because wires and we are
a nation encumbered and entombed
by wires are annoying. They are not
mobile. They do not let us, freedom-
loving Americans, move. But WiFi
technology is changing that.
Just about any teenager will tell you
that WiFi operates onradio frequencies
and enables you to connect your WiFi
enabled computer (as many are), cell
phone or PDA to the internet without
a traditional "wire" connection. That
means you can set up shop at a WiFi


We Care?
hotspot often coffee shops, airports,
hotels and the like and conduct
business or simply surf the internet
to your heart's content without plugs,
wires or other nonsense.
But what if you've already had half
a dozen lattes and you don't want to
hang around the airport any more?
What if you want to surf the internet
at the park or at your grandma's
house?
Well, if you're'a St. Pete resident,
you may soon be able to do that too.
In February, the City of St.
Petersburg entered into negotiations
with the internet service provider
(ISP) Earthlink to bring WiFi to all
60 square miles of the city. By going
wireless with Earthlink, St. Pete will
be joining the likes of Philadelphia,
San Francisco, Houston, Pasadena
and Anaheim, California.
Depending on the contract terms,
signing with an ISP often means that
'a city invests only the time required
of its staff to negotiate the ins and
outs of a public-private partnership.
According to the City of St. Petersburg,
the contract with Earthlink would

provide near-total indoor and outdoor
coverage to all residents, with no city
cost or maintenance required.
Wow. Does it sound too good to be
true?
While some cities like Athens,
GA and Long Beach, CA offer free
wireless access in their downtown
areas, projects like the one in St. Pete
usually. find momentum only when
there are profits to be made. As a
St. Pete resident should you decide
that you want to get in on this city-
wide business you would have to
sign up exclusively with Earthlink at
an estimated cost of twenty to thirty
bucks a month, depending on your
service plan.
Earthlink obviously scores big with
this deal. While they are taking
on the entire cost of implementing
this system (St. Pete isn't paying a
dime), they are getting some 250,000
potential customers.
Most of us already have an ISP of some
kind at home or in the office, but we
can't walk down to the neighborhood
playground to use it. If we must have
internet access, why wouldn't we go
with Earthlink and reap the benefits
of city-wide WiFi coverage?
Why indeed. St. Pete says it's
"looking to create a stronger
competitive environment so that there
is affordable broadband access for
businesses and residents," but it will
be hard for laptop-toting residents to
resist Earthlink.
"Obviously, we're really excited
about the opportunity," says John
Armbruster, assistant director of
Internal Communication Services
(ICS) for the City of St. Petersburg.
"Earthlink certainly has a great
history of providing exceptional
service."
Such praise for Eathlink may be
premature; city-wide ISP contracts
are a relatively new phenomena.
However, St. Pete can at least pat
itself on the back for having greater
technological vision than many other
Florida cities, particularly Tampa
,o which has balked at having to put
in the leg-work on such negotiations.
And, regardless of whether or not
you think it will "create a stronger
competitive environment" for ISPs, a
wired St. Pete will likely be a more
attractive St. Pete, particularly for
the young, urban set.
Just don't tell the property
appraisers.

Sensible Solutions to Saving Money


By Morgan Landis
Fred Ingram and Melissa Grether
own Sensible Housing Solutions, a
small company in St.. Petersburg
that focuses on helping Americans
get out of debt. They do that as two
of the 20,000 registered software
agents for United First Financial.
UFirst Financial is an innovative
company that helps American hom-
eowners to payoff their mortgages
in a third or half the time, and to
reach their financial goals by using
an innovative software program,
the Money Merge Account (MMA).
By utilizing the same banking
principals that Fortune 500 Com-
panies have used for decades, the
typical homeowner can payoff
their mortgage and be debt-free in
a third to half the time without re-
financing or making biweekly pay-
ments.
"We wanted to do something dif-
ferent to help people in the long
term," Melissa explains, "Many
people have no hope of getting out
of debt, and this program can help
them do that and make their lives
better."
The MMA is a powerful tool to
help you fulfill your dream of own-
ing your home and save money
for your future. Most homeowners
realize they will pay about twice
the purchase price of their home
on a traditional mortgage- a mort-
gage that will take about 30 years
to pay off. With the MMA, the av-
erage person can pay a 30 year
mortgage off within 8 to 11 years,
and with no change on day-to-day
spending habits, or increasing your
monthly niortgage payments.
The program basically reduces
the principal of your mortgage and
eliminates the interest from in-
creasing on your loan. It is>'not a
biweekly payment, debt roll-dowr.
system or refinancing. It's an en-
tirely new approach that gives
homeowners' flexibility with their
money and complete financial free-
dom.
Here is an example of a tradition-
al mortgage repayment showing
the savings using the MMA soft-
ware. A 30 year, $136,000 mort-
gage at 5.25%, if paid monthly, will

end up being $270,784 if paid back
in 30 years nearly twice the cost
of the home. The Money Merge Ac-
count program can repay the same
mortgage in 11.3 years with a total
repayment of $181,217. An incred-
-ible savings of $89,566 is realized
on the same income, with the same
mortgage, at the same interest
rate, and without any changes to
your standard of living if you uti-
lize this system.
. "It's just math. Complex math,
but it works," explains Fred.
The owners of United First Fi-
nancial started this program a few
years ago in Salt Lake City, Utah
after seeing the success of similar
programs in Australia and other
countries. A lot of money and time
was spent on the research and de-
velopment, including a year long
test market in Denver, Colorado to
over 400 homeowners.
The results were astounding with
all' the test market home own-
ers paying off their mortgages in
at least the time promised by the
program. Developed by a team of
financial experts with years of ex-
perience in the mortgage industry,
it is now available across the coun-
try and is fully guaranteed. The
Paid Advertisement-


program works for full-amortizing
loans, interest only loans or option
ARMS.
"A lot of people think it's too good
to be true, but it actually works,"
Fred notes. "This is a powerful tool
that will assist the average home
owner to achieve financial freedom
and see the light at the end of the
tunnel that has been dark until
now."
You can join Melissa and Fred for
a free Money Merge Account semi-
nar every Thursday at 7pm at sev-
eral locations in the St. Petersburg
area. Call 727-374-3074 to reserve
a spot or call for a private analysis
or to simply learn more about how
the program works and see first-
hand how it will work for you. You
