Gulfport Why's
Have you got a question about Gulfport?
Email your request to News@theGabber.com
By Cathy Salustri

Q How did Gecko Pest start?
A eAh, those lazy days at the end of summer, when the mercury dips below
*95 for at least five minutes each evening. Citizens of Gulfport associate
the end of summer with the annual Gecko Fest, a downtown celebration that
inevitably culminates with Mayor Mike Yakes parading down beach Boule-
vard waving his Gecko Stick.
But why geckos? Why not something a little more Gulfport, like Seagull
Fest, or Stetson Law Student Fest? We asked around, and while everyone
knows what happens at Gecko Fest- merriment, happy hour specials, parades,
belly dancers, and general Gulfportian merriment, it seemed no one knew
why Gulfport celebrates Gecko Fest at all. Through tried and true, in-depth
investigative techniques (we sent out a few e-mails), we found out the true
story of Gecko Fest (as told by the Geckos).
Years ago the City of Gulfport assigned the "End of Summer Celebration"
to then-events manager Marlene Shaw. Shaw decided the festival needed
something more than fireworks and music. She brainstormed with her friend
and City of Imagination pioneer Frank Hibrandt, who came up with the name
"Gecko Fest."
Artist Elizabeth Neily suggested that Gulfport consider a native species
instead of a Gecko, but a poll at a Merchant's Association meeting returned
unanimous results in favor of calling the celebration Gecko Fest. In response,
Neily declared it the "Gecko Fest and Mullet Mutiny." Every year since, Gecko
Fest turns downtown into a party and, if you really want to stretch things,
a nice metaphor for the way snowbirds will soon invade the area (think of
it as Gulfportians as the mullets and tourists as the geckos, although that's
our interpretation and not intended in any way to represent the intentions of
Gecko Fest organizers).

Catalina Owners to
Converge Locally
More than 120 Catalina yacht own-
ers will converge on the Treasure Is-
land Tennis and Yacht Club (TITYC)
in Treasure Island, Florida, Nov.9-12
to celebrate an anniversary and two
firsts. Avid sailors from throughout
the south will celebrate the event's
25th anniversary. This is also the
first time that the Southern Catalina
Rendezvous has been held in Florida
and the first time it has been hosted
by a yacht club.
According to Paul Payne, who is
chairing the event, the four days will
include water events, tours of the
area, boating seminars, food, music
and fun. Payne, a long time Catalina
enthusiast and former commodore


of the club, set the wheels in motion
when he met with Frank Butler of
Catalina and touted Florida, Trea-
sure Island and the TITYC. "This
is one of only three annual national
events for Catalina yacht owners. The
others are held on the west coast and
in the north. It's a great opportunity
to show off our beaches, our hospital-
ity, the greater Treasure Island area
and our club," he said. He cited the
club's location, new 7 million dollar
club house and docking availability
as selling points that helped bring
the event here.
Registration began Aug. 19 for boat
owners and their crews and guests.
For more information please con-
tact Payne at 727-562-6160 or visit

SYOU & THE

LAWI

What Steps Are Involved in
the Probate Process?
(Part III)
5. Filing the Inventory
Next, a Personal Representative is
required to develop an inventory and
appraisal of an estate's assets and'
debts which must be filed with the
Probate Court.
When developing an inventory, the
Personal Representative should iden-
tify all of the estate's probate prop-
erty, including both real estate and
personal property. To conduct the in-
ventory, the Personal Representative
may need to visit a savings and loan
or bank to determine the value of a
savings account on the date of death.
When doing so, it is best for the Per-
sonal Representative to take along
letters of administration as proof of
his/her authority.
While the inventory need not detail
every last piece of clothing or all of
the pots and pans, the Personal Rep-
resentative may estimate the value
of estate property or hire a profes-
sional appraiser to determine the
value of probate assets. A Personal
Representative should be involved in
the inventory and appraisal as much
as possible.
When conducting the inventory, the
Personal Representative should dis-
tinguish between property that the


deceased owned individually (pro-
bate property) and jointly with right
of survivorship (non-probate prop-
erty).
6. Paying Creditors, Taxes and Fees
All debts and taxes owed by the es-
tate are then required to be paid. A
Personal Representative is respon-
sible for determining the validity of
creditor claims and paying the debts.
A Personal Representative is also
responsible for preparing and filing
the tax returns. The following types
of taxes may arise in estate admin-
istration:
1. Personal Income Tax
2. Estate Income Tax
3. Inheritance Tax
4. Estate Tax
Compared with the substantial
value of many estates, court costs
and probate administration fees may
seem relatively minor.
In addition to court fees, estates
normally incur other administration
costs. Perhaps the most significant
among these is attorney's fees and
the cost of providing the required
notice. Registered letters may need
to be mailed to all interested parties
and a Personal Representative may
publish notice of the estate in local
newspapers. Also, an estate will have
to cover the cost of the Personal Rep-
resentative's bond.
7. Preparing the Final Accounting
The Personal Representative pre-
pares a final accounting of the es-
tate's value and debts. The final
accounting is complete once the in-
ventory, appraisal, and payment of
any outstanding taxes and debts is
accomplished. The final accounting is

a detailed balance sheet that shows
the value of all the estate's assets,
along with any income or interest
earned, debts paid, money owed, and
tax payments. The final accounting is
sent to the Court and all interested
parties for review and approval. The
heirs have a right to challenge this
accounting because a mistake could
directly affect the size of their inheri-
tances.
8. Distributing the Assets
The Personal Representative next
oversees the distribution of the es-
tate's assets to survivors, according
to the instructions in the will. If a
person dies without a will, then the
intestacy laws of the State of Florida
direct the distribution.
9. Closing the Estate
Following approval of the final ac-
counting, a Personal Represent-
ative can close the estate. To do so,
a Personal Representative submits a
sworn state to the Probate Court and
interested parties which specifies all
estate business is finished. This may
require a formal Court hearing with
all interested parties given the op-
portunity to attend.

W rH O The Kennedy Space
V L%.PCenter (KSC) Visitor
Complex in Cocoa Beach.'

T..AH ~ I first visited the
W x KL ennedy Space
Center as a teenager, roughly 85
years ago, and while my memories
of the visit have blurred over time,
I can say with reasonable certainty
the whole place has changed dra-
matically. The Rocket Garden, once
the coolest thing there (well, except
for the working rockets), still stands,
but the Center has dwarfed it with
IMAX theatres, a shuttle launch sim-
ulation, and a host of other space-age
exhibits. Years ago my visit barely
took half a day; this trip, KSC took
the whole day.

iHT E 'The Visitor Com-
W .L J .1 plex opens daily
at 9 a.m.; closing times vary by sea-
son. KSC closes for Christmas as well
as for certain launch days.

W E RE Just north of
W j RE Cocoa Beach
off SR 405, about 2 1/2 hours from
Gulfport and St. Petersburg.

.TT TDoes poking around in
W H JL. NASA's business for a
whole day make your heart pound?
That's reason enough. KSC's Visitor
Complex follows the history of space
travel, from the earliest rockets to
the shuttle program. While those
who remember the Apollo Program,
the moon landing, and the Challeng-
er can see artifacts of those events,
a new generation of space lover can
see parts of the space station getting
assembled, recreate the feel of a real
shuttle launch, and have lunch with
an astronaut.

R T Astronauts have
E A Lltold KSC staff the
Shuttle Launch experience comes


as close to rid-
ing along on a
launch as you can
get without, well,
riding along on an
actual launch. This
"launch" simulates
blasting out of the
atmosphere strad-
dling a rocket and
then quietly gazing
down on the earth. It
lacks the roller coast-
er feel you may antic-
ipate, but, hey, it's the
real thing (almost).


BEST Part: I
loved the shuttle launch,
I did, but the tour, a
time-tested favorite, still
rocks. Highlights on the
tour: the space shuttle
(as close as you can
get without a degree
in -rocket sci-
ence) the real
mission con-
trol room and
real rockets
from the Apol-
lo program,
and real rocket-
scientists work-
ing on lots of
technical things
that the US and
other countries
want to put on
the space station.
Also of note: the
space shuttle pro-
gram ends in 2010, at which point
we're going, as our KSC tour guide
told us "back to the moon".

WOR TPart: The
VORSTekn en ne s .
While the Visitor Center boasts free
kennels for pets, remember the phrase
"you get what you pay for"? The Gab-
ber's test dachshund spent, the day
alone in an air-conditioned shed-like


build -
ing. While staff
seemed concerned
with his well-be-
ing, the lack of
a dedicated ken-
nel staff coupled
with the test
dachshund's pa-
thetic hoarse
honking when
we picked him
up at 4 p.m. pretty
much guaranteed he wouldn't return,
even though we would.

for adults; ten dollars less for kids

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

Tutors Needed at
Gulfport Library
Do you have one hour a week? Would
you like to volunteer for a worthwhile
course? If your answer is yes, please
consider volunteering at your local
adult education school.
Students need support in read-
ing and math. If you would like to
be a part of this team, please call
the Community Relations person,

Become an
Organ Donor
Do you know what it takes to be-
come an organ donor? The steps are
simple. Obtain the facts about dona-
tion, make a decision and tell your
family members that decision. You
could also choose to designate organ
donor on a driver license or carry a
donor card. Today nearly 88,000 peo-
ple wait for an organ that will save
/their lives and hundreds of thou-
sands more could benefit from tissue
or cornea donation. Call LifeLink at

"DnatthiWtandthrrri "


On these hot summer days
sometimes you just have to
go with the flow. Yesterday's
charter was just such a day. I had
planned to go down to the Skyway
and catch bait where I had caught
it the day before, but as luck would
have it we arrived at the spot just as
the tide was going slack and the bait
fish were scattering away from the
bridge. After several unsuccessful
throws of the cast net it was obvious
that we were wasting a lot of time for
very little bait. Instead of continuing
the frustration I decided it was time
to go to "plan B". We stowed the cast
nets and loaded the rods with soft
plastic slugger tail jigs and headed
for the nearest trout flat. We set up
our drifts to take us through water
that was two to five feet deep and
had good grassy bottom with good
tidal flow. Granted this is not prime
trout time by any means but we did
very well landing two fish a little
over twenty inches and quite a few
that fell in the slot range. We also
caught other interesting creatures
such as ladyfish, bluefish, lizardfish
and the usually list suspects found
on the flats. Had we stayed after
the bait fish we would probably
have missed a lot of the action on
the flats.
Although fishing during the dog
days of summer may be hard on the
angler there are a few species that
don't seem to mind the heat so much.
A pretty descent run of pompano
has developed in the Pinellas Point


area. Yellow Doc"s Goofy Jigs or
comparable banana jigs work well
on these tasty members of the jack
family. Drifting along channel
edges and the edges of the deeper
grass flats on the incoming tide has
been good. Live bait fisherman can
work the same areas with fiddler
crabs and do well also. However,
it may be more of a challenge to
find the fiddlers than the pompano.
One way to find the pompano is to
watch the wake of the boat as you
travel through areas reported to
have pompano to see them "skip"
across the water. As they flee from
the approaching boat they will jump
from the water and skip across the
surface like flat stone.
Speaking of the fiddler crabs brings
to mind another denizen of the flats
that is starting to school up into
larger numbers now; this would be
the hardy redfish. Reds love crabs
but are also very opportunistic
feeders and will take a wide variety
of lures and natural baits. I have
my best success with these fish on
the last of the incoming and first
of the outgoing tides. Most all the
mangrove islands have reds around
them now. To locate a school of
reds use your trolling motor or
push pole to quietly move along the
overhanging mangroves watching
for telltale signs such as a wake
being pushed up by moving fish or
look for little puffs of mud where a
fish just spooked on your approach.
You may also actually see the


fish lying in the shadows of the
mangroves. Once you have located
the fish quietly set up in the area
and deploy baits around the boat. A
little finely chopped chum is a good
idea too. Another important thing to
have is patients, give the spot fifteen
to twenty minutes to see if the fish
are going to cooperate if they don't
move on and repeat the process at
another mangrove shoreline.
Another fish that is hot in the
heat is the mangrove snapper.
They can be found around almost
any structure form the most upper
reaches of the bay offshore out to the
middle grounds. There is probably
not a more successful in the sea.
Bigger fish will be found in water
ten to twenty feet deep with good
tidal flow. They will take shrimp,
minnows and cut bait. These critters
are cagey and require lighter tackle
and fluorocarbon leaders but are
well worth the effort.
Remember in this heat to be sure
to take plenty of water with you and
try to remember to drink before you
actually get thirsty. Stay hydrated.
It also helps to plan trips early or
late in the day to avoid the worst of
the heat. Checking the tide chart
will help you decide which end of
the day will best suit your needs.
Be safe on the water and enjoy our
great bay and beaches.

15 Minute Parking Spots
on Beach Boulevard
In response to several requests from-
business owners along Gulfport's
Beach Boulevard, council approved
a plan on Tuesday which designates
two 15 minute only parking spaces
on each block between Essex and
28th Avenue.
According to Tom Brobeil, city
manager, the new spots will be located
near businesses which are likely to
have a more transient clientele such
as a laundry, convenience store, post
office, and a computer repair and.
sales store.
'This is a beginning to help address
some of the -parking issues wi have
downtown," said Michele' King,
council member. "The. move will
definitely help, some of the small
businesses located along_ Beach
Boulevard. Some people are bound
to abuse the 15 minute limit, but
most will not."

Variance Denied
On Tuesday, -Gulfport city council
denied an appeal of a board of
adjustment decision in the case of
Joline Weeks of 5522 17th Avenue
South.
Weeks had constructed an addition
to her home which significantly
encroaches on the side yard set back,
reducing it from 6 feet, to just 8 1/4
inches. The addition was constructed
without a permit. Weeks may
seek to file for a new permit which
would reduce the size of the current
structure or may require its complete
removal.

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


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

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


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


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

i, A \r--7 r-~~~~~~~~ r.... ....... ......


Time was taking its toll on
Sophia Sussman; there was no
getting around it. She didn't
want to admit it, and she fought it
every chance she got, but she also
had reluctantly begun to accept it.
She still traveled a bit, but not as
much as she used to. No more flying
off to Europe every couple of years.
No more extended, 2-week bus trips
through New England to see the fall
foliage. These days, her trips tended
to be less frequent and shorter and
closer to home.
After all, she had turned 80 this year.
As hard as it was, she had to face
that fact. It had been 17 years since
Manny's retirement, since they had
sold their home in Brooklyn, bought
their fifth-floor condo in Town Shores
and moved south to The Sunshine
State. And it had been 15 years since
Manny had died and left her alone.
She wasn't complaining. She had
had a good life, and she still had her
far-flung, busy children, who came to
visit whenever they could and always
welcomed her when she went to visit
them. And Lord knows she had made
the most of her 15 years alone.
She was still making the most of it,
in fact, and that included her daily
"fitness" routine an early-morning
walk every day, weather and arthritis
permitting. She would get up by 6 a.m.
and, as soon as it got light enough to
see where she was going and to feel
safe, she would leave her building on
Shore Boulevard and walk to Wood
Ibis Park. Then she would circle the
reservoir as many times as she felt
up to, usually two or three laps, then
return home for a cup of tea and her
morning bath.
This Saturday morning was no
exception, and Sophia was up and
at 'em. By her second lap around the
park, the morning light was getting
stronger, so she stopped to take a
break and admire the lily pads that
were so numerous along the northern
edge of the water. She loved lily


pads and always hoped to find a frog
resting on one of them.
This morning, there was no frog but
there was something else out there,
something hidden in the reeds that
grew just a few feet off shore. Sophia
crept closer to the edge and leaned
over as far as she dared to try and
get a better look. What is that, she
wondered. An old department store
manikin?
Suddenly, she gasped. She realized
what she was looking at. Her hands
flew to her mouth and she whispered
"Oh, my Lord" into them. Then she
turned back to the path and began
rushing as fast as her tired legs
would carry her toward Town Shores
and the nearest telephone she could
find.


For Rebecca Collins, as always,
Saturday was always about
relaxation and self-indulgence. She
had no intention of making this
Saturday any different. But first, she
had to take care of some business.
Not work business, personal business
- her sister Sam, to be exact. She had
been tired last weekend, and not in
the best of moods, so she had begged
off her usual Sunday afternoon with
Sam and promised to make it up to
her this week with something special
for lunch. And to Sam, "something
special" meant only one thing well,
two things, actually: spaghetti with
meat balls and chocolate cake.
Rebecca had felt guilty all week
about canceling last week, so her
first priority this morning was to
make sure that lunch tomorrow with
Sam was set.
Sam answered the phone after the
second ring, saying, "Hello, this is
Sam Collins," in the shy, unsure-of-
herself voice she always seemed to
use when someone called her on the
telephone. At least she always used
it when Rebecca called.
"Good morning, Sam," Rebecca said,


identifying herself.
"Hi, Becky," Sam responded.
Rebecca had long ago trained
everyone to use the formal version
of her first name. Everyone, that is,
except Sam. She had tried with Sam,
too, but failed.
"Just wanted to make sure you're
coming over for lunch tomorrow,"
Rebecca said, getting right to the
point. There was no such thing as
chit-chat on the phone with Sam. The
conversations were too one-sided.
"I can't," Sam said, without
explanation. Two words, and then
silence.
Rebecca was dumb-founded; Sam
had never, ever turned down an
invitation from her.
"What do you mean, you can't?" she
asked, being careful not to sound
upset. Upset didn't work with Sam;
in fact, it could make things worse.
"I'm going to the movies," Sam
answered.
"To the movies?" Rebecca repeated.
She washavingtrouble processingthis
information, this situation. "You're
going to the movies tomorrow?"
"Yes," Sam answered, "with
Kenny."
Rebecca racked her brain. Kenny?
Who's Kenny?
"Who's Kenny?" she finally asked.
"You know Kenny, at the
restaurant."
Oh, yes, Rebecca thought,
remembering now. The bus boy.
About Sam's age. He doesn't seem to
be a whole lot smarter than she is.
"What movie are you going to see?"
Rebecca asked, stalling for time.
"Harry Potter," Sam answered.
Rebecca's mind was racing. Is this
a good idea? Is this a good movie
for her to see? Should I try to put a
stop to it? Would that be fair to Sam?
Isn't an independent life for Sam the
whole idea?

W ith all the things going on in
Gulfport these days, most
importantly the tax cuts
mandated by the state legislature and
the budget cutting required both now
and, most likely, next year to meet the
city's falling income, I realize that this
is hardly the most pressing issue facing
City Council. But it's a recurring and
irritating problem that is not going
away.
I'm talking about music, outdoor
music, nighttime music, the music that
-has been multiplying in the downtown
business district in recent years and has
been driving so many people, especially
residents in the area, to distraction.
There has been music downtown for
many years, of course, primarily in
the waterfront bars. I remember when
Mansfield's instituted live bands on
Friday nights. Gulfport on the Rocks
has had live music for years, and
O'Maddy's has had karaoke for a long
time, too. But it was inside, always
inside.
But this outdoor music problem
is a relatively new one. It has been
proliferating with the addition of
restaurants and bars in the waterfront
district. Many of these new places have
outdoor seating, or, in some cases, old
places have added new outdoor seating.
And the trend, these days, seems to be
to add music to the mix, to entertain
these outdoor customers and, even
more important, to attract them in the
first place with live music.
Much to the chagrin of the residents
in the area.
And there are a lot of them, because
our downtown is not an isolated area;
it's bordered on all sides by residences.
I doubt that there is a single business
downtown that doesn't have a residence
right behind it, or in the same city
block, or across the street.
So the conflict between the businesses
who want to have outdoor music and
the residents who don't want to listen
to it is built into the geography of the
place, and there doesn't seem to be an
end in sight.
So far, we've been dealing with the


Endless encores

for our "music

of the night"

Roger Turner
VIEWPOINT


problem piecemeal, one business at a
time, one application at a time. Each
applicant goes before City Council
and each applicant gets an approval,
eventually. In the meantime, we try
to control the noise level with existing
noise ordinances and with time limits
(10 p.m. on weekdays, 11 p.m. on
weekends) and with decibel monitors
on amplification equipment.
And sometimes we talk about other
stuff, like sound buffers and the
problem with drums, and sometimes
we issue temporary permits to see if
businesses will behave themselves and
at least try to be considerate of their
neighbors, and sometimes we just issue
the permits and hope for the best.
Until next time. There's always a next
time.
And then we start the process all
over again and have hearings, where
we listen to the businesses and to the
neighbors antd to the interested parties
and to the people who aren't any of
those things but want to add their
two cents worth anyway. And then we
issue the permit, with restrictions, and
sit back and wait for the complaints to
start rolling in.
The real problem, of course, is that both
sides of the conflict have real arguments
in their favor. The businesses have a
right to operate and to try and make
a go of it, to attract customers and
provide them with the services they
want, in this case music. And with
some of the downtown businesses
struggling (witness the recent closings
of Aquabella and Cahill's), it's hard to
deny them anything that might help
their cause. I don't know of anybody
who wants to drive anyone out of
business. Most of us try to support the
downtown businesses.
But residents also have rights, and
it seems to me that one of those rights
is to live in their homes and enjoy
relative peace and quiet without being
bombarded, night after night, week
after week, year after year, with their
neighbor's music.
We live near the downtown waterfront
district, about a city block, as the


crow flies, from the outdoor stage at
the Art Village Courtyard. We often
hear music from there and from The
Peninsula across the street, especially
on our porch and, when the windows
are open, even inside the house. It's not
overbearing, though, and we live with
it. But I can imagine what it must be
like for those people who live closer, or
near one of the businesses that are the
worst, the loudest offenders.
So if both sides have rights, how do
you solve the conflict?
You do what you always do in a
democracy, you compromise. You come
up with a solution that gives both sides
some of what they want, but neither
side everything they want.
Which would mean, I guess, a new
ordinance or a revised ordinance
addressing noise abatement. And it
should start, I think, with the two
biggest problems relating to outdoor
music in downtown Gulfport: sound
amplification and drums. It's not so
much the music as it is the amplified
music that is invading people's homes.
And drums are just invasive, period.
So I'm suggesting a revised ordinance
that says, yes, you can have outdoor
music but not amplified music. If you
want amplified music, move it indoors.
Same for drums; move them inside.
I know, I know: "Our customers like
their music loud." Well, customers
can't have everything they want,
either. And they don't have the right to
demand music that disturbs the whole
neighborhood, sometimes the whole
area. And for that matter, why does
music have to be blasted 2 or 3 blocks
in every direction to be enjoyed by a few
people sitting right in front of the band.
And who knows? There might even
be a few people, like me, who would
come and spend a few bucks and enjoy
the music if it weren't so loud that it
drowns out conversation.
Then there's the argument that
smokers want to be able to enjoy the
music outside, where they can smoke.
Okay, but loud music? Please. See
above: everyone can't have everything
they want.
But at least this way, everyone would
have something. Restaurants and bars
could still have music outdoors, if they
wanted to. Nearby residents would have
relief from the worst of the pounding,
invasive music. And customers could
still come to downtown Gulfport and
enjoy a drink or some dinner outdoors,
with music to add to their pleasure.
Sounds like win, win, win to me.
Okay, now tell me what an idiot idea
this is. Go!

Public Comment

& Council Quotes

Excerpts from statements at the August 21, 2007 Gulfport Council Meeting

"Someone came onto my property here in Gulfport while I was at
my summer home in New Jersey and with malicious intent broke a
water facet that resulted in me getting two sewer bills totally nearly
$1000. When I tried to get some relief for this through the public works
department I was told "Too bad. Blame city council if you don't like
it." -Elissa Cardamone speaking to council about her recent experience with
vandals and her subsequent disappointment in her dealings with various
Gulfport city departments.

"I've met with officials from PSTA. They are considering giving us a
surplus trolley that would run between Gulfport and St. Pete Beach
every hour from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. They are even willing to help us
find grant funding for the expense of the driver, gas and upkeep. If it
goes through there will be stops at Publix and at Palms of Pasadena
Hospital...so Gulfport residents could use it to go shopping and for
doctor visits. I've very excited about the possibilities." Michele King,
council member.

"I've been in contact with county officials and they can be here on
August 30 to give us a presentation about how the county might handle
our building permitting and inspections. I've also asked them to fax
me a standard contract they use with other cities." Tom Brobeil, city
manager, to council his update report.

"Raising rates is a tax. And if the proposed changes get passed by
voters in January rate increases will be considered tax increases. I
guess we have-to get these in before then don't we?" Bob Newcomb to city
council prior to the passage of large rate increases for marina slip rental and
Casino rental.

"Igot my TRIM notice today. My taxes with all the cuts are going down
$20. If they hadn't been made my taxes would have gone up $5. There
was a time in my life when $20 was a lot of money, but it just doesn't
seem like very much right now when you spread it out over the course of
a whole year." Bob Worthington, council member.

"I think we should make Donna Spano city clerk...she's earned it." -Ted
Phillips, vice mayor during the council's discussion.on the city clerk, deputy
city clerk and possible hiring of a full time city attorney.

Fort DeSoto, which puts us in very
cool company alongside St. Augustine
and San Juan in Puerto Rico, though
ours is not nearly as old. According
to fortdesoto.com (NOT the official
web site for the park), construction
on the fort began in 1898, but it "was
never the site of any major battle, and
the weapons of Fort De Soto ...were
never fired in anger at an enemy."
Perhaps in a moment of irritation.
Well, the fort is cool, nonetheless.
And, occasionally, mock civil war
battles are fought there (so you can
either grab your confederate cap or go
make fun, whatever floats your boat).
But, what makes the park stand out
(and, as a person only marginally
more active than a tree sloth, I'm
putting myself out on a limb, here) is
all the cool stuff you can do there!
Torpidity aside, I, the human pet
rock, have actually walked the Fort's
nature trails, steered my bike along
its paved paths, and fallen in,
countless unflattering positions -
onto its sandspurs with rollerblades
still attached to my feet. But that's
just for starters.
You can now rent a kayak or canoe
and paddle the Fort's canoe trails (or
find uncharted territories of your own,
potentially ambushing nude beach
proponents). This happens to be my
favorite Fort activity as it requires far
less inertia and far greater rewards,
from stingray sightings to the
possibility of mangrove crabs jumping
in your boat.
I have eaten fresh fish caught from
the Fort area, and can say that they're
as fine as any tilapia ahemm, I mean
grouper) in our Bay area. And, while
I'm not a fan of terrorizing animals
for my own amusement (sorry, sport
fishers), I'm sure there's plenty of fun
to be had in that department as well.
Boaters and fisherfolk alike (though
I'm sure they already know), the Fort
is your friend.
Add to all this outdoor abandon tons
of great picnic sites, goofy carriage
bicycles, vast undeveloped beaches,
and a smattering of concessions
stands, and I think you'll get my
drift when I say that the Fort totally
rocks. It's no coincidence that you've
got to call, like, a bazillion months
in advance to reserve a campsite (I
hear they're now taking names for
Christmas-2012).
I'm telling you, as soon as I can get
off the couch, I am so there.

Gulfport Bids for 49th
Street Landscaping
The city of Gulfport has awarded
the "49th Street Streetscape Plant
Materials" bid to Florida's Finest
Landscaping Services, Inc. in the
amount of $68,257. The bid was the
lowest of two qualified companies
which submitted bids and coming
in $17,821 under their competition.
The bid was considerably under the
initial budget for the project which
was $93,343.
City staff had previously reviewed
the scope of this portion of the 49th
Street redevelopment project and
to reduce costs is using the existing
green space along 49th Street for
planting areas and creating new
planting areas only where needed
for lighting. Progress Energy is
scheduled to install ornamental
lighting at a cost of $38,347.50. Staff
from the city's parks department
will install the planting soil and
landscaping.
The city is in the process of
removing granite curbing hidden
below the existing grade. This is the
work which is currently reducing
49th Street to one lane from the
city's welcome sign south for several
blocks. This was an unforeseen,
unbudgeted expense and to date has
cost the city about $23,000. The old
granite curbing is being retained by
the city with the hope that it might
be 'sold to help offset this expense.

Veteran non-profit boxing club with
a 20 year history in St. Petersburg

A Giftfrom Margit's Gallery of Art


By Morgan Lands

Walking down Beach Boulevard is
always a good time for me. Every
store I go in has their own atmo-
sphere and an unique collection of
goodies to choose from. I love art-.
walks because it gives me a chance
to just browse the stores for fun,
since I usually don't have much
money to buy anything anyways.
On my most recent stroll I saw
another store that had opened it's
doors and went in for a little look.
I found another amazing story be-
hind the doors.
Martin and Margit Bungartz have
been in the United States for only a
year. Martin moved here last Au-
gust to get acclimated, and Margit
joined him this past January. The
couple lived in Germany where
Martin was a certified roof master
for 35 years, while Margit stayed
at horie. After selling-his business,
they decided to retire here in Gulf-
port. Although they didn't exactly
stop working.
Margit's Art & Gift Gallery opened
in April of this year. After only own-
ing the building a few weeks, they
had the door open to their neigh-
bors and friends. Now that they've
had time to organize the store, they
want to see new people in there to
check out their eclectic collection
from around the world.
Special products are imported
from Italy and France, including
soap, pottery, jewelry from murano
glass, and cotton pashmina shawls.
As well as very cute purses and wal-
lets to accessorize any outfit with.
There are plenty of bowls, serving
plates, wine and whiskey decau-
ters, napkin rings, and many other
kitchen goods to spice up a kitchen.
Eccentric items for the house, like
doorbells, candleholders, vases, can
add a touch of culture to any home.
And if that's not unique enough,
then they can engrave names or
business logos on anything.
"You cannot buy at Walmart,"
Margit notes. "We are always try-
ing to bring new stuff in, a lot of one
of the kind."
I asked them why did they move
here to retire, only then to decide
to open up a store. They looked at

each other, spoke in German, and
then tried to figure out how to tell
me, the non-German speaker.
"I like to talk to people," Margit
explains, "it is very important for
training my English."
As I look around the store (think-
ing of my sister's upcoming birth-
day) I see finished gift wrapped sets
with stationary, trinkets and teddy
bears. Margit makes these herself,
collecting different items and wrap-
ping them in clear paper and rib-
bons. She likes to be creative, but
she's not the only one with talent.
Martin has been doing slate roof-
tile art as long as he's been work-
ing. As a roof master in Germany,
he knows how to handle the stone
well. You can find small pieces with
portraits or nature scenes engraved,
or larger pieces of art, like the one
that lines the wall outside of their
doorway; shapely stones look like
their climbing up the wall (you can
see it passing down the street).
He is authorized in America as the
only special dealer, rooflayer and
rooflying instructor for the dayroof
tile Tifa X1 Variabel, as well as con-
forming to the German standard of
the company (www.laumans.de).
To see more of Martin's work, you


can take a look at www.slateart-by-
mb.com.
If all the creative items to choose.
from isn't enough, then you'll get
ecstatic about the prices. There is
always a semi-clearance sale of 20-
50% off to make room for new items,
so it's easy to save on lamps, mugs,
barrettes, sunglasses and greeting'
cards that need to go, which is good
for people like me who could save
the extra cash.
"People can buy our stuff at prices
fair," Martin says. And that's ex-
actly why you need to come check
this place out. It's inexpensive, a
little eccentric, and the people are
great, so I think they'll fit right in
to Gulport. So come meet your new
neighbors- I promise it's worth the
walk.
