Gecko Fest Draws Big Crowds, Sponsors,


Media Attention
by Greg STemm
The 7th annual Gecko Fest cel-
ebration drew one of the largest
crowds in recent memory to down-
town Gulfport on Saturday. Event
organizers and sponsors estimated
at least 15,000 people enjoyed a day
of activities which included street
performers, a loosely-organized pa-
rade, a film showing on the beach
on a large inflatable screen, live
musical entertainment and over
120 vendors offering arts and crafts
and food for sale.
The event which featured big name
sponsors such as Kia Motors, Geico
Insurance, Bright H house Networks,
the St. Petersburg Times, the City
of Gulfport and The Gabber also
drew the attention of local TV sta-
tions which featured the celebra-
tion prominently on morning news
and talk' shows on Friday morning.

WTSP (Channel 10 CBS)

Spano Named City Clerk


Donna Spano was named new city clerk by Gulfport
city council on Tuesday, September 4. A number of
Gulfport residents spoke before council in support,
one saying, "There are certainly a lot of qualified can-
didates out there to be city clerk, but Donna is the
best candidate to be Gulfport's city clerk."


Laura Reichart and Liz Howard stop for a quick shot with the fes-
tival mascot.


Donna Spano, the acting city clerk since the
departure of Louise Spence on June 30, was
officially confirmed as the new city clerk by a
unanimous vote on Tuesday evening.
Spano has worked for the city of Gulfport
since June 27, 1995 when she was hired as a
building permit, technician. She became dep-
uty city clerk on October 5, 1999. Prior to her
employment with the city she was an executive
assistant for First of America Bank.
Spano will be compensated $51,506.00, the
base pay for city clerk. Council reached con-
sensus to review for a possible increase in six
months. The city clerk position is a chartered
employee job, which means Spano reports di-
rectly to council and serves at their pleasure.
"I really appreciate the confidence that city
council has in me," said Spano. "I came to
Gulfport when I was only 6 months old and
have either lived in Gulfport or worked for the
city of Gulfport my entire life since then so I
am delighted I can now serve as an official of
the city I love."

Wine Tasting Gives More than Alcohol


Lee Neal, owner of Pic Pac Liquors, pours wine for patrons
during the Abilities Foundation Benefit, held at his store on
Central Avenue.


By Morgan Landis
Friday evening Pic Pac
Liquors on Central Avenue
at 66th Street, held a V.I.P
Wine Tasting to benefit
the Abilities Foundation.
The Abilities Foundation
is a nonprofit organization
that helps Floridians with
all types of disabilities by
providing employment op-
portunities, housing, and
health services. The founda-
tion holds events through-
out the year to raise money
for these services.
Lee Neal, owner of Pic
Pac Liquors for, 27 years,
had 12 different bottles of
wine ranging from $30 to
$90 per bottle. The wines
started with Chardonnay
and Pinot Noir, heading
into Merlot and Shiraz.
Neal wanted to start the
tasting with something


light, and have the strength ana
body of the flavor build as the people
moved down the line.
"They're all my favorites, or else
they wouldn't be here," Neal said
about his choices. Some of the favor-
ites of the evening were Newton's un-
filtered Chardonnay, and the Pelton
House Merlot. Although he save the
best, and most expensive at $85.99,
for last with the 2480 Cabernet
Sauvignon, which got a lot of glory
that night.
"That's not a wine, that's a dessert,"
said Nick Pusta, a Gulfport resi-
dent who has taken numerous trips
to California's wine country, and a
regular at Pic Pac Liquor.
Neal got involved with the Abilities
Foundation in 1991, when 'some guy
convinced me it was a good idea.' He
usually holds wine tasting on Friday
evenings from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. for $5.
The cost for this event was $10. Neal
can also be seen on Bright House's
Tampa Bay channel 340.

"Public Comment

& Council Quotes

Excerpts heard at the September 4, 2007 Gulfport City Council meeting

"City wide garage sales can be a great way for us to bring people to town and
showcase the charm of Gulfport, but they haven't been well promoted or well run.
I am willing as a private citizen to help with advertising and to help the city real-
ize the full benefits of these kinds of events." -Gulfport resident Pat Dunham in a
presentation about Gulfport's city wide garage sales. Council agreed to a meet-
ing between Dunham and city staff to discuss future plans and promotions.

"I'd like to suggest that we honor the mayor's strong and ongoing commitment to
our youth by renaming our Recreation Center to the Michael Yakes Recreation
Center." Ted Phillips, vice mayor, during the Other Business segment of the
meeting. Council reached a consensus to proceed forward with plans to rename
the facility.

"Beginning December 11, 2007, Brighthouse will move all government access
channels to the 900 numbers and make them high definition programming., That
means that anyone who wants to view them will have to pay at least $50 a month
for a cable box. Even worse, there will be new regulations limiting the number of
times information may be repeated on a government access channel without the
governing body losing access to it. There are certain to be legal battles over this."
Council member Bob Worthington in the Other Business portion.

"When the project is complete we may have the highest percentage of cleaned up,
run off water of any city on Florida's west coast. "-Ted Phillips, vice mayor, com-
menting on the 49th Street Outflow Improvement project.

YOU & THE

L AW

Your Personal Injury
Rights
The State of Florida's Motor Vehicle
No-Fault affects your personal inju-
ry protection rights if you are in an
accident involving a motor vehicle.
First, the Florida Motor Vehicle No-
Fault Law provides personal injury
protection (PIP) benefits. These ben-
efits pay for certain losses you may
have resulting from an accident. Sec-
ond, the Florida Motor Vehicle No-
Fault Law dictates a limited exemp-
tion for liability for injuries suffered
by others in a vehicular accident.
Who Is Covered Under PIP?
All residents of the State of Florida
who own a motor vehicle are required
to purchase PIP. Someone has PIP
coverage if they are the named in-
sured. A named insured is covered
by PIP if she or he is injured by a mo-


under


tor vehicle even if that person is out-
side of a motor vehicle, for example,
if they are injured by a motor vehicle
as a pedestrian.
Relations and children who live
with the named insured may also
be covered by PIP benefits of the
named insured if they are driving
the named insured's vehicle and are
injured. Similarly, if the same people
are injured when they are passen-
gers in the named insured's vehicle
or another vehicle, they may be cov-
ered by the named insured's ben-
efits. Likewise, pedestrians which
are relatives in the named insured's
household who are injured by the
motor vehicle may be entitled to PIP
benefits under the named insured's
motor vehicle insurance policy.
People other than relatives of a
named insured may be entitled to
a named insured's PIP benefits. If
someone is driving in a named in-
sured's vehicle, is a passenger in
that insured vehicle or is injured as a
pedestrian may be legally covered by
the named insured's PIP benefits.
Finally, if you as a named insured
are injured while driving your in-

sured vehicle outside the State of

your motor vehicle PIP benefits so
long as the accident occurred in the
United States, Canada or in U.S.
territories or possessions. This same
scope of coverage may also apply to
relations who are living in the named
insured's household.
In our next article, we will explore
together some additional aspects of
personal injury protection rights
and benefits including medical pay-
ments/benefits and certain exclu-

EXFLORk. THE SHOFS &

Gulfport's Election to
Coincides with General
On Tuesday, council voted to make
Gulfport the only city in the county to
move its municipal election to Janu-
ary 29, 2007 to coincide with the date
for Florida's Presidential Preference
Primary election.
The move is estimated to save
Gulfport taxpayers about $10,000.
By moving the date to coincide with
the general election Pinellas County
will bear most of the costs. In 2005,
the last time that Gulfport ran an in-
dependent election, the cost totaled
$9,942.00.

Code Enforcement
Gulfport Code Enforcement has
returned to Section One of Gulfport,
also known as the Stetson Area. The
Stetson Area comprises the northwest
portion of Gulfport and generally ex-
tends south from 7th Avenue South
to Gulfport Boulevard and east from
64th Street to 58th Street. To learn
more about code violations or how to
contact a Code Enforcement Officer,
please visit the Special Documents
section of the City's website at www.
ci.gulfport.fl.us.

PPC Contract Renewed
Gulfport renewed its interlocal
agreement with the Pinellas Planning
Council (PPC). The contract was set
to expire on September 30, 2007. The
renewal extends the agreement until
September 30, 2010.
The agreement provides the city an
opportunity to contract with the PCC
for professional planning assistance
including special studies, analysis
of land use and zoning issues, site
plan review, grant applications and
preparation of land development
regulation.
There is no cost to the city unless
the PCC is contracted and agreement
is reached on an identified scope of
services.

Gulfport For Sale
By Cathy Salustri
The face of downtown Gulfport has
started, once again, to change. If
you ask around downtown, every-
one seems to have a different rumor
about the latest round of changes.
One thing everyone seems to agree
on? A lot of restaurants have closed
or may not survive the year, and a
few other businesses are up for grab
as well.
Although a lot of people rely on a
sort of "coconut telegraph" (in this,
case, the "Gulfport Telegraph") for
information, we've done the home-
work and found out what's for sale-
and not for sale- along Beach and
Shore Boulevards.
Lori Rosso's selling the Seabreeze
Bed and Breakfast for $1,650,000.
That includes the business, the build-
ing, and the property. She's had the
B&B on the market for almost four


months, and she's keeping it open
until it sells.
Not so with Aquabella's, the former
Casa Cortez. After roughly two years
of remodeling, owner Chris Midulla
opened the self-proclaimed steak
and seafood house overlooking Boca
Ciega Bay. Now Midulla has closed
the doors, most likely for good, some-
thing we couldn't verify because it
seems his phone numbers have all
been disconnected or changed. He
has listed the restaurant for sale,
and anyone who wants to try their
hand in the foodservice business
can buy it for $2.5 million (that also
includes the land and the liquor li-
cense). Aquabella's went on the mar-
ket three months ago.
Gulfport Beach Bazaar is another
business for sale at $69,900, which
includes the business as well as the
Post Office Contract Station, but not
the property. It's been on the market
for close to two years.
The new Stargazer Quilt building

(3038 Beach Boulevard) closed ear-
lier this year, and for just over a
month the property was for sale for
$395,000. The owners took it off the
market, but according to the Pinellas
County Property Appraiser, the prop-
erty sold in May to Anthony Dodson
and Peggy Wesselink for $220,000.
Cahill's was for sale (business
only) for $310,000, but the sellers
took it off the market and the, res-
taurant has closed. Beth Armstrong
owns the property, and she says
she's leased it to Tom and Pia Goff
of Pia's Trattoria. Armstrong says
they plan to serve breakfast, lunch,
and dinner as early as October, in-
spections and licensing permitting.
Armstrong says that the Goffs plan
to do something completely different
than Pia's, and Pia's won't be going
anywhere- the Goffs will keep Pia's
open. Armstrong does not have the
property listed for sale, although in
the past she had listed the property
for $950,000.
HT Kane's also was listed, for
$275,000 (business only), but it's
been off the market for almost a year
and a half. Helga Kane told us she
has "no plans to close."
We also heard through the Gulfport
Telegraph that the owners of Gulfport
On The Rocks wanted to sell, but we
found no listing, recent past or pres-
ent, in the Multiple Listing Service
(MLS).
Special thanks to Delia Davidson
at R.W. Caldwell for her assistance
compiling MLS real estate informa-
tion.

re you confused yet? I am,
but then, I consider it a major
victory to balance the checkbook
each month in these days of automatic
deposits, electronic transfers, on-line
bill payment and, most of all, ATM
withdrawals. So understanding the
city budget and the current round of
budget cutting is way beyond the pale
for me.
But with a little help from City
Manager Tom Brobeil, I think I've
got a handle at least on what the City
Council did in the endless round of
budget workshops during August.
Now, all we have to think about are
the two public hearings on the budget
in September (Wednesday, September
12 and Tuesday, September 25). And
then start thinking about what the
legislature is going to do next, because
they're not happy yet, and what the
voters are going to do in January on the
property tax referendum, which may
or may not pass, and, for that matter,
what the constitutional committee that
reviews taxes every 10 years is going
to do when they meet. More about all
that later.
But for now, the job at hand is to cut
$850,000 more from the city budget
that the city manager drew up for FY
2007-2008, which begins October 1. Or,
more precisely, from the city's general
fund, which is the main operating fund
and the fund into which property tax
income goes. Or else find new ways to
generate more income for the general
fund.
Which is pretty much what the City
Council has decided to do generate
more income for the general fund by
taking some money from other city
funds.
There are three "enterprise" funds
in the city: the marina, public utilities
(water, sewer and stormwater),
and sanitation (solid waste pickup).
Everyone who uses these services pays
a fee, and those fees go to cover the
costs of those services plus create a
reserve for future repairs or upgrades
to the systems.


Tax cuts, budget

cuts and budget

workshops, oh my

Roger Turner
VIEWPOINT

The council has decided to take
some of the income from these three
enterprise funds and transfer it to
the general fund. It's called a PILOT
program (payment in lieu of taxes), a
nonsensical way to say we're robbing
Peter to pay Paul. But, hey, it's all
in the family. The plan is to take 7.5
percent of the income from utilities, 7.5
percent from sanitation and 10 percent
from the marina, because it's more
profitable.
You can see why they went this route.
It's relatively painless and lucrative.
The transfers from these three funds
will put nearly $613 thousand into
the general fund next year, which, in
turn, is nearly three-quarters of the
$850 thousand that is needed. Without
painful job cuts. Who wouldn't go for
that?
My only concern is that these
withdrawals might jeopardize the
reserves in the three enterprise funds,
but the city manager seems confident
that they will not. I hope he's right.
Most of the rest of the shortfall, about
$230 thousand, comes from eliminating
city jobs that are now vacant, thanks to
a hiring freeze the city manager put in
place earlier when it became obvious
the legislature was going to cut our
income.
The now vacant part-time assistant
city clerk position will not be filled. The
principal planner in the community
development will not be replaced
(shockingly, considering all the work
that needs to be done back there).
A recreation coordinator will not be
replaced, and teens will not be hired for
the summer recreation program. And
the clerks that work the front window
.at City Hall taking utility payments
will now be paid out of the utilities
fund, not the general fund.
There are also three current vacancies
in the Police Department, but the
council decided to leave only one of
them unfilled. One of the other two is
being filled by a new school resource
officer for Boca Ciega High School,
which the county school board will


reimburse us for (most of it, anyway).
The other vacancy will be filled simply
because the City Council doesn't want
the department to be short-handed.
Those are the personnel cuts, so far -
if they stick through the public hearing
process. There will also be a transfer
to the general fund of $100,000 from
an "over-funded" general employee
pension plan, and there are a couple
of small grants that brought in some
extra money.
And then' there will be some fee
increases, both now (marina slips,
Casino rentals, recreation fees) and,
most likely, in the future (theater
rentals, utility and sanitation fees). But
the budget-cutting process has been
relatively painless up to this point, due
primarily to the PILOT program.
That may change soon. Some people
in the legislature are talking about
"starting from scratch," because the
property tax bills have been coming out
and taxes didn't "drop like a rock" like
some predicted. So stay tuned. More
changes would undoubtedly mean
more cuts.
And there's the referendum on
property tax exemptions that is
scheduled to go to the voters in
January. Up to now, everyone has been
saying that it would be a "slam dunk"
for passage. But now, some are saying
that it may not pass, that there will be
a lot of opponents. Homeowners may
vote to keep exemptions the way they
are because they don't want to lose
their "save our homes" tax cap. And
business people may vote against the
changes because none of the new rules
would help businesses. So stay tuned
for that, too.
And there's the tax review committee
that is set up by the state constitution
to review our tax structure every 10
years and make recommendations for
changes. They're due to meet again
before long, and they even have the
power to place referendum measures
on the ballot without the approval of
the legislature. So we need to watch for
that one as well.
In short, taxes are in a state of flux,
right now, and that especially applies
to property taxes. This uncertainty
could well be around for a number of
years. So it looks-like the city and the
City Council are going to have lots of
opportunity to cut the budget and the
city staff and city programs and city
services in the future. And it won't be
nearly this easy.

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

Q Why do we have beach parking decals?
A *To the new Gulfportian- a few veteran ones, too- the Gulfport parking
S*detail can lead to confusion. Driving around town you see the odd car with
a decal that allows the vehicle a space at the beach, but when you drive down to
the beach you see cars with decals and without. Why even bother getting a de-
cal? Is this how the City plans to recapture lost property taxes?
In a word, no. The City of Gulfport will give you a parking decal, no cost, no
strings- as long as you can prove you live inside the city. At night it doesn't mat-
ter if your car has a decal on it or not, because anyone can park at the beach. But
between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. every day, cars with beach decals trump cars without
in the west lot (the lot closest to the Gulfport Recreation Center).
According to Fred Metcalf in Gulfport Community Development, this guar-
antees that Gulfport residents have easy access to the beach, even when Shore
and Beach Boulevards fill with visitors. The other lots, Metcalf says, always
allow parking for everyone. So how do you get a parking decal? Go to Gulfport
Community Development (inside City Hall) and show proof of residency (a driv-
er's license or water bill should do the trick). In exchange you'll get two decals
per household. Questions? Call Community Development at 893-1063.

"There is no doubt in my mind if someone came to Gulfport for
the first time the winning combination of activities and events
on Saturday left a very positive experience and memory of our

visitors won't hesitate to visit Gulfport again and again."

Suddenly, Jeremy closed the

He realized he didn't want to

Matt showing off his paintings and
talking about them, the one they
made to send to a gallery owner
in New York. He didn't want to
associate the good times with the
disaster unfolding in Gulfport.
What did he want to do?
It didn't take him long to come
up with an answer. He found his
car keys, locked the door behind
him and climbed into his car. Then
he drove west on 28th Avenue to
58th Street, crossed the street, and
pulled into the small Wood Ibis
Park parking lot.
The park was quiet no sign of
activity, that he could see. So he
got out of his car and walked over
to the small picnic shelter adjacent
to the parking lot, where he stopped
and peered into the darkness.
Lights on the north side of the park
illuminated the path around the
reservoir and he could see yellow
tape surrounding a large area of the
shoreline.
"Can I help you?" The words came
from behind him. He whirled around
to find the young detective, Rick
Sanders, standing behind him.
"I'm sorry," Jeremy said. "I know I
shouldn't be here. I just wanted to
see the scene of the crime."
"Do you often do that?" the
detective asked. "Visit the scene of
the crime?"
"No," Jeremy answered, "not
often."

This is a work of fiction. The events,
the people and, especially, the victims
are fictional as well. No similarity to
real people or real events is intended.
Next week: Chapter 5 begins with
Jeremy's "other" crime scene.

Labor Day Loser
A bout three weeks ago, my
partner Maria came up with
plan: we would spend Labor
Day weekend camping and canoeing.
This, I though, was brilliant, with
one possible exception: it's four
thousand degrees outside.
Now Maria, the native Puerto Rican,
is not one to be dissuaded by our
summer heat. She actually wears
several layers of clothing, including a
stand-by sweater, to combat the air-
'conditioning in her office building. I
mean, compared to San Juan, we're
practically shoveling snow up here.
But I digress.
Because. this is the sort of thing
you do for your partner, I agreed to
this insane camping proposal on one
condition: we go to one of Florida's
cool, clear springs as far north as a
day-trip could take us.
So we began researching. Owing to
the fact that Florida is pretty much a
giant, floating blob of sand, there are
no less than a zillion or so "ground-
fed" water sources in our state.
Many of these springs are small,
uncharted for the casual tourist, or
so remote you'd need a GPS locator
and a machete to find them. Then,
of course, there are the bigger ones
which are so popular particularly
on a hot, holiday weekend that you
could barely dip your toe in the 72
degree water without smacking up
against a flotilla of blow-up alligator
rafts.


After careful consideration of these
facts, we settled on Manatee Springs,
about an hour and a half north of
Tampa. There was really no reason
for this except that the pictures
looked pretty. And also they allow
dogs, which seemed like a good idea
at the time. So, Manatee Springs it
was. We had made our decision.
Fast forward to about a week later.
We have invited friends. A crew of
four was now ready to hit the springs
and discover "real" Florida. Only,
our new traveling companions were
not so excited about the camping
part. Great, I say, barely concealing
my relief, we could stay in a nice
little bed & breakfast on Cedar Key,
a marvelous fishing town about
an hour west of Manatee Springs.
Applause all around: I am the Labor
Day weekend genius.
Then, 4 funny thing happened. I
started a new semester-at school and
forgot all about the dang trip. Well,
the plans were made, right? What
could possibly be left to do?
If you've ever been outside of your
house on a holiday weekend I mean,
to even so much as a picnic area you
know what I forgot to do. I forgot to
make reservations.
Of course, by "forget," I mean that I
just didn't do it.
Turns out we weren't the only
Floridians who wanted to hit the
old canoe trail for Labor Day.
Apparently, all of the rest of you did
as well. Maybe you could drop me

a line and let me know how it went,
because, well, by the time I did make
some phone calls (last Saturday
morning), there was nary a canoe,
kayak or floating vessel to be had
in the entire state. And, needless to
say, there were no rooms left at the
inns.
Well, when life hands you lemons,
you know what they say. I decided
to go with Plan B. My dad owns a
perfectly beautiful canoe, and there
are certainly enough watering holes
in the Bay area to dip it in, so I made
one last phone call.
Would you believe that Dad's canoe
was booked too? Of course. He was
practically on his way out the door
with it.
It is amazing how fast you can go
from Labor Day genius to Labor Day
loser. I was in trouble now. My
friends, sensing blood in the water,
backed away from the whole deal.
Maria was no longer speaking to me.
What could I do?
There was only one trick left in my
bag. An old friend of mine lives on
the pink streets down by the Skyway,
and I had heard a rumor that there
was an ancient canoe in her garage.
Well, it~-Would be no spring-fed
wonderland, but I supposed we
could paddle around the docks down
there. We could even bring our dog,
Mango.
So we loaded up the truck with
snacks and towels, sunscreen, and a
couple of cans of Heineken. Twenty
minutes later we were standing in
my friend's garage, struggling with
this decrepit, thousand pound boat
that probably hadn't been in the
water since Nixon left office.
But it was a canoe. Just fifty yards
from the Gulf. And, even though
I didn't deserve it even though I
hadn't made a single reservation -
we had the best day.
Right up until Mango lunged for a
bird and flipped the boat.
