Tuesday night Jeff McChesney donned his bee-
keeper uniform and climbed into a bucket truck
to face 50.000 bees in South St. Petersburg.
Not the typical night for most, but for father
and son team Rick and Jeff McChesney, going
to high places to seek and remove bees is all in
a days work. The duo, long known in Gulfport ,
for their pest control business, specializes in
bees. They are one of only two such companies
in the area that have access to a lift to get to
the high places many bees build hives, so the
McChesney team keeps busy.

and 24th Avenue South had a hive of roughly
50,000 European honeybees; McChesney said
the hive "was four to five years old" and spanned
two feet wide by three and a half feet tall. Mc-
Chesney said the hive had shrunk since he first
saw it last week, attributing the St. Petersburg
Fire Department for the change in size.
"Right before we sprayed it the fire depart-
ment came along and sprayed. They sprayed
with soapy water, which actually made our job
a little harder because it generally just aggra-
v..rated them," McChesney said, adding that the

Gulfport Passes 2007/2008 Budget


By Greg Stemm
In a special public hearing on Tuesday,
Gulfport city council passed on second read-
ing two ordinances: one establishing the
millage rate for ad valoreum tax revenue for
the city at 3.3487 and the other approving a
final city budget for the 2007/2008 fiscal year.
The new budget becomes effective October
1 and runs through September 30, 2008.
The millage rate reflects a 9 percent de-
crease in property taxes below the rolled back
rate as mandated by state legislature in HB
1-B. the Property Tax Reduction and Reform
Law. The rolled back rate is the millage rate
which would provide the same property tax


revenue as was levied the prior tax year.
According to Administrative Services Direc-
tor Dan Carpenter property values increased
on average 6.2 percent within the city of
Gulfport over previous year's valuations
while property tax revenues will decrease by
$322,937 over last year's revenues under the
new millage rate.
Gulfport's total budget is $23.4 million
dollars with $10.8 million of that in the
general fund. Going into the budget process
the city had faced an $810,000 shortfall for
next year because of the state mandates.
Council held five budget workshops in

Council Hears Permits/Inspections Proposals


By Greg Stemm

In a special council workshop re-
cently Gulfport city council heard
proposals from three possible out-
sourcing entities to take over the
city's building permitting and in-
spections. Council heard presenta-
tions from Pinellas County, the City
of St. Petersburg and a private con-
tractor, Quorum Services, based in
Tampa;
"We are simply looking at options
we have not considered before," said
Michael Yakes, mayor. "We are not
here tonight to award any contracts,
but simply to hear what those options
might be for our consideration."
Council Mary Stull asked for clari-
fication about why the council was
considering the the change and hear-
ing such presentations.
"There are three main reasons,"
said Yakes. "There have been cus-
tomer service issues in our depart-
ment. Second there have been in-
terpersonal issues among our staff
in that department and finally, we
have received a number of calls from
residents arnd contractors who feel
they weren't treated fairly. People
have high expectations in this area.
I've also received calls of praise for
the department," he added. "But the
concerns have been that we aren't


stable and consistent in our level of
service. Plus, it is no secret that the
level of building has declined so it
might not make sense for us to con-
tinue to have our own department.
Again, this is an opportunity to ex-
plore options we might not have con-
sidered before."
The first presentation was by Rob-
ert Nagin, assistant director of de-
velopment and review services for
Pinellas County's Building Depart-
ment.
Nagin told council that the coun-
ty's department is large enough that
there are specialists in different
trades. "I've been in the business for
30 years and I can tell you there is no
one person is going to be an expert
on everything. We have the people
to specialize -in each area...it gives
our clients a better level of service."
The county proposes to have pro-
cedures in place to pick up site plans
and he assured council that most
permits could be issued without
home owners actually having to go to
Clearwater. He noted that the city
already has a contract with the coun-
ty to handle overflow work from out
department and the proposed con-
tract would simply be an extension
of services which are often already
being performed by the county.
There would not be a representa-


tive from the county onsite in the city
all the time, but Nagin said that the
county could make someone avail-
able on a regular basis, for instance
once a week.
Julie Weston, director of St. Pe-
tersburg's Development Services De-
partment, did not seem enthusiastic
about the possibility of her city tak-
ing over Gulfport's permitting and
inspections, acknowledging that she
was there at the request of mayor
Rick Baker who had had a conversa-
tion with Yakes.
"We do not currently have any
contracts like this," said Weston. "I
could not guarantee that the quality
of work you would get from our de-
partment would be what you would
expect it to be. St. Petersburg resi-
dents would still need to come first
in any kind of relationship like this
and we certainly don't have as many
people as the county does so we
might not be able to offer the same
level of service."
Weston did say that it would be
likely that at least one person would
be assigned to Gulfport and would be
onsite rather than at a remote loca-
tion like the county was offering.
The third presentation was from
Jim Paleveda from Quorum Servic-
es, and independent firm which pro-
vides building permits and inspec-
tion services.
"We would offer a customize solu-
tion based upon the scope of services
you would outline for us," said Pa-
leveda. "We could certainly have a
dedicated person right here on site
for as many hours a week you would
like...it would just depend on the
contract we worked out together."
"Using a private firm is not without'
precedent," said Tom Brobeil, city
manager. "We have contracted out
with private firms before when we
had trouble locating a person with
the proper credentials to fill one of
our vacancies."
Council directed Brobeil to put to-
gether a matrix analyzing the vari-
ous capabilities, strengths, weak-
nesses, limitations and advantage
of each option as well as a cost com-
parison. Brobeil said much of the in-
formation would need to be solicited
from the organizations presenting
and did not give a timetable for such
a presentation.

Gulfport Beach Water

Quality Report for August
By Cathy Salustri

Every month The Gabber publishes the city of Gulfport's Gulfport Harbor wa-
ter test results. If, at any time, the tests show that the water quality poses a
health risk, the City of Gulfport will issue a Health Advisory. The City typically
receives test results within a week of taking the sample.
Currently, the City tests for two things: enterococcus and fecal coliform. Sci-
entists consider enterococcus a common bacteria found in animal and human
intestines, and, resultingly, in human and animal excrement. Federal standards
used to require agencies to measure water quality by the amount of fecal coli-
form along public beach waters but recently have replaced fecal coliform with
enterococcus as the standard. Fecal coliform also comes from the waste of warm-
blooded animals, including humans. Test results will help classify Gulfport Har-
bor as "good", "moderate", or "poor". Enterococcus of less than 35 parts per 100
milliliter and fecal coliform of less than 199 per 100 milliliter of saltwater indi-
cate good water quality.

CELEBRATING 30 YEARS
We currently offer our oil changes at $20.93 (with coupon) using Kendall oil and
WIX oil filters. We purposely do not have a fast lube bay, preferring to use our
ASE-certified professionals for oil services instead of an untrained quick-lube
employee. We also will not use "economy" oil filters. We feel it's deceptive to use
sub-standard parts or to put someone under your car who knows nothing about it
other than where the oil filter and drain are located. Part of what you should be
getting for your oil change money is a complete periodic safety and maintenance
inspection, done with the intent of identifying and warding off possible problems.
An underpaid, unskilled quick-lube worker just isn't a good enough mechanic to
help you protect your investment.

Circus McGurkis
Thirty-six years of Creating Peaceful
Community. Saturday, October 20 from
9 am to 4pm at Lake Vista Park Corner
of 16th Street South and 62nd Avenue
South St. Petersburg.

The 36rd annual Circus McGurkis
is scheduled for Saturday, October 20,
from 9 am to 4 p.m. at Lake Vista Park-
in St. Petersburg. Last year logistical
problems and the illness of the event's
founder kept Circus to a small picnic
gathering, but a reinvigorated Circus
returns this year with vendors, enter-
tainment and a renewed commitment
to its original purpose as a peace edu-
cation celebration. Also known as "the
people's fair," admission is free, and
all are welcome. This year's theme is
"War is Not the Answer." The event is
produced by the St. Petersburg Meet-
ing of the Religious Society of Friends
- The Quakers.
Lake Vista Park is located at the cor-
ner of 16th Street South and 62nd Av-
enue South. It is easily accessible by


Returns This Year in
taking 1-275 to Exit 17 and proceeding
east on 54th Avenue to 16th Street
(Lakewood High School is on that cor-
ner) and then South on 16th Street.
The event will be held rain or shine
unless dangerous weather threatens.
There is no rain date.
Groups or individuals wishing to have
exhibit space at Circus McGurkis can
register online at www.circusmcurkis.
org or request a form by calling Julie
Martin at 727-768-3890.
Children's booths are free. Advance
registration for non-profit organiza-
tions with exhibits or displays is $15;'
$25 for non-profits with sales and $35
for profit-making groups and individ-
uals. All registrations must be made

mail; no e-mail or phone registrations
are accepted. Advance registration
ends October 13. You may register

Vendors will be asked to provide a
brief statement on how their goods,
services or organization contributes to
peace or peace education. Peace may
be broadly defined and may involve
local, national or global efforts. These
statements are being displayed on the
Circus website and will be available
for participants to read at the event.
Organizers are also seeking enter-
tainers such as musicians, story tell-
ers, dancers, actors, artists or other
creative expressions, particularly
those with a theme of peace. Children
or youth performances are welcomed
and encouraged. There is no amplifi-
cation available or allowed and enter-
tainers receive no compensation.
Circus McGurkis was founded by a
group of peace activists and Quakers
36 years ago during the Vietnam War.
It's reflection of the Quaker testimo-
nies of Simplicity, Peace, Integrity,
Community and Equality have stood
the test of time and resonated with
participants for more than a genera-
tion.
'"We are humbled to pay tribute to
those who have made Circus such a
success for nearly four decades," said
Greg Stemm, 2007 clerk. "When you
look back to 1971 it's easy to see that
War wasn't the answer then...and 36
years later, it's certainly not the an-
swer now."
Circus McGurkis is sponsored by the
Religious Society of Friends (Quak-
ers). Quakers carry on our work as
an expression of a belief in the dignity
and worth of each person and a faith
in the power of love and nonviolence
to bring about change.

SYOU & THE


LAW

Real Estate Buyer's
Legal Checklist
One of the single largest invest-
ments of your lifetime may be when
you purchase a home or some other
type of real estate. In many cases,
your entire life savings could be in-
vested and potentially at risk. As a
result, it is very important that any
prospective purchaser of real estate
proceed with a certain amount of
caution.
Purchase and Sale Agreement
The first document that a potential
buyer of real estate will encounter is
the Real Estate Purchase and Sales
Agreement. This document is one of
the most important papers you will
sign in a real estate transaction.
The details contained in this agree-
ment determine what real property


V^


(di a.


* Comprehensive Eye
Health Examination
* Children's Vision Care
* Dry Eye Care
* Cataract & Glaucoma
* Drivers License Exams


you will buy and how you will buy
it. What is in this agreement also
establishes what your rights and
responsibilities are in the upcoming
real estate transaction.
The following is a brief checklist of
items which should be considered by
a buyer of real estate:
What exactly are you purchasing?
Are land, buildings and personal,
property included as part of the
sale?
When will you be entitled to take
possession of the property? Will the
current owners need time after the
closing to move out of the property?
Can you live with this?
What kind of deed should the seller
of the real estate give you? Should
it be an agreement for deed, a quit-
claim deed or a warranty deed?
Will the seller provide you with
good, marketable title?
Who is responsible for the payment
of real estate and other taxes? Will
they be prorated?
What persons should be required
to sign and accept the real estate
contract and closing documents? Is
it necessary for both a husband and

wife to sign the documents? Who
should sign the documents if a cor-
poration is involved in the deal?
What are the zoning or other re-
strictions on the use of the real prop-
erty?
Are water, mineral or timber rights
involved in the sale of the real es-
tate? Have they been properly cov-
ered in the agreement?
In what time frame does the pur-
chase offer need to be 'accepted or
refused? Are there certain contin-
gencies in the real estate contract
which require satisfaction prior to
the contract becoming effective and
legally enforceable?
Who pays for the costs of title in-
surance, property inspection, intan-
gible tax on the mortgage, documen-
tary stamps and the broker fee?
These are but a few of the questions
which should be answered before
you sign a real estate agreement.
Only then will you know if the real
estate purchase you are contemplat-
ing will truly meet your needs.

Budget, from front page

August and came up with various approaches to make up for this shortfall,
including payment in lieu of taxes from enterprise funds, reduction in payroll
increases and employee benefits and increased user fees in the marina for
public facilities such as the Casino and programs such as GEMS and summer
recreational activities. Their efforts yielded a budget that makes up about $1.2
million, more than covering the shortfall.
During public comment, resident Dotty Wolski asked council and the city
manager about the financial reserves of the city. City manager Tom Brobeil
told Wolski that the new budget includes $4,232,000 in unrestricted funds
that the city might use in case of an emergency such as a hurricane or other
disaster. Brobeil said that a minimum of 25 percent of the operating revenue
needs to be kept in a prudent reserve for such circumstances.
Not everyone in the public has been supportive of the approach council used
to balance this budget this year under the new mandates.
"We came into this with an understanding that there had been a cry from
state taxpayers to cut spending...that there was a strong statement saying
that taxpayers did not feel like they were getting their money's worth from
government, said Gulfport resident Bob Newcomb. "But you didn't cut a
lot of spending here. You used smoke and mirrors with PILOTs (payment in
lieu of taxes), not filling vacancies, increasing fees and cutting services to the
elderly and to single mothers.
Something is wrong with this budget," he continued. "People want lower
taxes and the state agreed with this initial rate cut. You may say you lowered
them, but you actually increased them through these fees. I think the state is
going to sanction us again and again until you actually lower them."
"You people are up here congratulating yourselves for doing such a great job
cutting expenses, but you didn't do anything until someone told you had to,"
said Rick Gilbert. "You're like a child that just spends and spends and spends
until someone tells you to stop. There's a lot of waste. For example, from look-
ing at the numbers, it appears to me that you are still about 20 percent 'fat' on
your staffing and labor costs," said Pick Gilbert.
Council member Bob Worthington said he didn't think there a lot of waste
either this year or in the previous decade. "Some newcomers to town might
ask where all the money from increased property taxes has gone," said
Worthington. "But anyone who has been here for a while knows we have in-
vested a lot of money in sweeping changes for Gulfport over the past ten years.
In addition to many great cosmetic changes all over town and in particular in
our waterfront area, we've done extensive repairs to our sewer system; we've
dramatically improved drainage and our water system. During that time our
employees paychecks haven't been extravagant compared to the private sec-
tor. Yes, we must avoid any new spending right now, but money has not been
wasted."
"There is always room for improvement," said Michael Yakes, mayor. "And,
2008 is going to be much more challenging. The state legislature goes back
into session on October 3 and there are a lot of unknowns that may change
what we just passed. But I stand on the ability of the public to be watchful of
us as public servants and on the council's ability to do what it takes to keep us
financially responsible."

Bee Man,
From Front page

City codes enforcement offi-
cers had cited the property
owner because neighbor-
hood residents had report-
ed several stings.
McChesney told The Gab-.
ber the State of Florida has
strongly encouraged him to
destroy any bees he finds.
"Their theory is kill them
all," McChesney said,
adding that he generally
preferred transferring
European honeybees to
a beekeeper. "The Depart-
ment of Agriculture recom- McChesney was required to destroy the hive.
mends that we destroy all
feral bees because of the threat of the Africanized bee to the area. We do
have a beekeeper that we transferred the bees to, but the State of Florida
suggested we stop doing that, that we no longer save them, that we kill them,
mainly because they're not native to Pinellas County."
So McChesney climbed into the bucket and let the tree service lift him 50
feet in the air, where he sprayed the hive and the oak tree with a foam treat-
iment that would kill the bees.
"There was lots of honey," he said. "The bulk of the bees were actually in
the tree trunk, but they made a huge colony on the outside of the tree as
well. They made walls and they made a roof to protect themselves from the
weather as well.., they made their own little hut."

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

Q* A few years ago the Gulfport Chamber made news talking about
getting a building of their own- City Council even discussed the
old Chase building as a possibility. Here we are, 2007, with no new build-
ing. Additionally, the Chamber welcome sign on 58th Street has peeling
paint and looks as though it's falling apart. What's the deal with the
Chamber?

A Lori Rosso, the president of the Gulfport Chamber of Commerce,
handled this question for us. "We would love to have a home of
our'own, as you know the Bank of America is generously providing a
space for us... but we do not have a budget that would allow for us to
purchase a building of our own," Rosso told us adding, "I don't know what
the old Chase building property is... I had thought perhaps Scout Hall
once it was renovated. The City has offered for us to use the old ticket
booth at the Casino for Art Walks to have a presence there with informa-
tion and perhaps merchandise to sell, we have just been too busy to make
it happen."
So, no new building anytime soon. After clarifying which sign the ques-
tioner meant (the one by the cemetery on 58th Street and 1st Avenue
South), Rosso has communicated to The Gabber that the Chamber plans
to repair the sign. As for the status of the chamber?
'The Chamber is up and running and getting back to membership basics,"
Rosso said.

A Senseless Act of Violence
. ..








.. .








Suncoast Seabird Sanctuary hospital staff tried to save the osprey, but the injuries from
the gunshot were too severe.
Gunfire shocked Tierre Verde residents on the peaceful September 23rd Sun-
day afternoon. "Ozzie" the Osprey, a beautiful, federally protected wild bird, well
known to the locals, fell hard from a sailboat mast with a loud squawk.
Onlookers ran quickly to the bird, bloody and flapping on the boat.' Wild bird
rescuers from the Suncoast Seabird Sanctuary arrived shortly afterwards, rush-
ing it to their avian hospital after stabilizing it. The hospital staff tried to save
the dying osprey but the injuries from the gunshot were too severe.
Witnesses at the scene said they did not see who pulled the trigger and the
shooter is still being sought. If you have any information about this case, call
Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission investigators at 888-404-3922.

This N' That in
South Pasadena
By Sbylle Stajich
The Silent Killer
High cholesterol (also known as
the Silent Killer) was the topic of
the meeting presented by Palms
of Pasadena Hospital on Sept. 18
at noon. A good crowd of people
assembled and after a light lunch,
Rose Ellen Lucarell, RN and
Pharmacist Jennifer Vaillarino
spoke about the dangers of high
cholesterol. Too much of it in the
blood cam lead to heart disease
and stroke which are high kill-
ers. Cholesterol in the blood can
be reduced by eating healthful
foods such as five or omre serv-
ings of fruits and vegetables daily,
grain products like bread, cereal,
rice and pasta, lean meats, poul-
try without skins and at least two
servings of fish weekly.
Limit your intake of whole milk,
cream and ice cream, butter, egg
yolks and cheese, fried foods,
sausage, bologna, salami and hot
dogs and most importantly, limit
your intake of salt. The ladies
spoke about Lipitor which low-
ers and keeps down cholesterol
and the various other medications
that can be taken. Ms. Lucarell
said she is so glad that nowadays
people take more interest in these
health problems. Years ago they
only followed directions that were
given them.
Dine With a Doc
Dr. Steven B. Warren is the "Doc"
you can dine with on Wednesday,
October 3 in the Boca Ciega Room
at Palms. Dinner at 5:30 p.m.
seminar at 6 p.m. The topic is ar-,
thritis, knee or hip problems.
Dr. Warren will discuss current
treatment options for degenera-
t e arthritis of the hip and knee.
Plase RSVP to 1-800-667-4576 to
reserve a place for this important
letue.

nook season is winding down,
but there's still plenty of time to
catch a snook of a lifetime, just
as Dean Pasquale did.
Linesiders reacting to decreased
amounts of daylight are moving from
their spawning grounds off the beach
towards their winter lairs. These
hangouts can be at the mouths of
small bays, bayous, creeks and rivers.
Land points with some form of struc-
ture are great snook hiding place dur-
ing their trek as well. Look for struc-
tures like an oyster bar, grass flat
edge, mangroves or residential docks.
They all hold fish.
Since most fish are lazy, including
snook, they would rather not chase
forage if they don't have to. A slow
swimming free-lined shrimp is simply
irresistible to a hungry snook. They'll
just wait for it to swim by and inhale it
like a chicken on a June bug. It's best
to tail hook the shrimp so it swims as
naturally as possible.
Red drum (redfish) are schooling
up for their fall migration. They're


relatively easy to find as long as you
know what you're looking for.
Head out during a long incoming
tide that peaks with a level of 2 feet
or better above mean low water. This
will give you plenty of time to slot a
school or two. Look for head wakes,
not just tails. Nervous water or head
wakes are much easier to spot than
a lone tail or two. And besides, with
the high water you won't see much
tailing action to begin with. Now,
don't get schooling reds confused with
schooling mullet. Mullet wakes are
shorter and more spread out than
redfish wakes. Moving reds will have
a V-shaped wake. Another good way
to tell the two wakes apart is to see
what color it is. Mullet flash silver,
reds flash copper.
Once you find a school, position up-
wind or up current and let the school
come to you. Cast in front or to the
side of the school, avoid casting in the
middle of the pack or you'll never see
them again if you do.
Cut ladyfish, mullet, or whitebait are


all good choices for dead-bait fishing.
Live shrimp, whitebait, and small
pinfish presented under a cork will
not go unnoticed.
Better dust off your kingfish gear
because smokers are right around the
corner. When the water temperature
gets to that magical 72 degree mark,
you can bet the bite will be on.
Many of the artificial wrecks and
reefs (Betty Rose, South County) along
the beaches hold plenty of school ac-
tion. These fish are eager to bite just
about anything that is put in front of
them. All you need to do is pull a sil-
ver spoon around and you'll get plenty
of action.
If you're looking for a tournament
winner, then troll the area between
SEgmont and the Skyway. Pull a lady-
fish, mullet, or shad for that winning
bite. Notice I said bite...not bites.

Newspapers in Education
By Morgan Landis

Newspapers in Education (NIE)
is a program that provides newspa-
pers and supplements to local class-
rooms for free. Newspapers are-used
to increase literacy, vocabulary,
and communication while learning
about world events in geography,
science and other subjects. Teachers
receive free supplements for the
classroom to help navigate the in-
formation available: Participation
in the program shows an increase
in language arts test scores, espe-
cially among minorities.
There are over 106,000 schools
involved, reaching 1.4 million
children. Locally Boca Ciega High
School participates because of many
donations, including the Gulfport
Chamber of Commerce. The St.
Petersburg Times has been involved
for the last 25 years, providing four
million copies a year of free news-
papers.


Joe Walsh, Newspapers in Education
(NIE) representative, thanks the Gulfport
Chamber of Commerce for their donation
to the program. NIE joined the chamber
after their contribution.

1r~UNIFiIrDR


George Ardis emerged from
the shop looking very pleased
with himself. Actually, he
almost always looked pleased with
himself but, 'at the moment, he
appeared to be even more so.
"Take care of my little orange
blossom," he said to Jeremy.
"Will do," Jeremy answered,
assuming he meant Lydia.
Grapefruit is more like it, he thought
to himself.
"Oh," Ardis said, stopping, "and if
.you can let her off a bit early tonight,
that would be nice. She needs a
little time to make herself especially
beautiful for dinner tonight. I'm sure
she wants to make a good impression
on my friend Alvin."
"Where are you having dinner,"
Jeremy asked. He didn't really
care that much, but was making
conversation.
"Up the street at Backfin Blue,"
Ardis said. "Alvin is from Maryland
and likes their crab cakes. And Lydia
wanted someplace close where she
could meet us. So Backfin it is."
"Good choice," Jeremy agreed,
wishing he could be a fly on the
wall.
With a final wave, Ardis was off and
Jeremy gathered up his newspaper
and headed back into the shop. He
made it as far as the door when Don
Scout Burnard walked up.
"Good morning," Jeremy said. "I
think there's still some coffee if you'd
like some."
"No, thank you," Burnard said.
"I've already had my fill of coffee
this morning. I'm here on a shopping
expedition, actually."
"Oh, well in that case." Jeremy
held the door open for him.
They entered the shop to find
Lydia still on some kind of high.
Apparently, diamonds and rubies,
if they were in fact diamonds and
rubies, acted as a stimulant for her.


Jeremy wondered if they also acted
as an aphrodisiac.
"Oh, Don," she gushed, "how
wonderful to see you. Come over
here. I have something absolutely
wonderful to show you."
Burnard lit up like a Christmas
tree, obviously pleased to have such
an effusive greeting from Lydia.
Jeremy was reminded that the guy
seemed to have a crush on her one
of apparently many who had a crush
on her. Jeremy didn't understand
any of it. Better stand in line, pal,
he thought.
Burnard scurried over to the sales
counter where Lydia was standing.
"Isn't this just about the most
beautiful thing you've ever seen?"
she asked, flashing the bracelet at
him. "I just got it. It was a gift."
Jeremy watched the smile vanish
from Burnard's face.
"A gift?" he.asked. "From who?"
Lydia smiled a conspiratorial smile
at him. "Oh," she said, "let's just say
an admirer."
Jeremy couldn't resist. "Let's just
say," he parroted, "an old coot with
too much money."
Lydia didn't seem the least bit
offended. "There's no such thing as
too much .money," she said.
Jeremy laughed. Burnard didn't.
"Yes," he managed to say, "it's very
nice," without displaying either
much enthusiasm or conviction.
Jeremy decided it would be a good
idea to change the subject. "Can we
help you this morning?" he asked.
"You said you were shopping.
Were you looking for something in
particular?"
Burnard seemed relieved. "Yes," he
said. "I'd like to buy another picture
frame. I have an old photo of my
mother that I like very much, and
I'd like to get a frame for it."
"Very good," Jeremy said. "You've
come to the right place." Then he


glanced over at Lydia, who still
seemed to be basking in the glow of
her good fortune. "Do you think you
could help him?"
"Yes, of course," she said, reluctantly
tearing her eyes from the bracelet.
Jeremy decided to leave the
salesmanship to Lydia and went
into the back room to refresh his
cup of coffee and tackle some of the
catalogs that had been building up
in his in-box.
And to get a little time alone with
his thoughts. He felt like the world
was tilting on its axis.
First and foremost, there were
these murders accumulating around
Gulfport. That was bad enough. But
they were pulling him back back to
Charleston, back to a place he didn't
want to go. He was being pulled back
anyway.
Then there was Lydia, this
woman he had invited into his life
- just his business life, but his life
nevertheless. Who in the world is
she? Taking expensive gifts from
George Ardis. Stringing him along.
He knew she had no interest in
Ardis. Maybe Ardis didn't know, but
Jeremy did. And Lydia knew, too;
he had no doubt whatsoever about
that.
And Pendergast, showing up every
couple of weeks like a bad check.
Inserting himself into events and
discussions like he was a participant.'
Who the Hell is he?
And Don Burnard mild-mannered
Burnard, mooning over Lydia and
disapproving at the same time.
What's his story? Obviously, he likes
women. That has been established.
But Lydia? Where there other women
in his life? Another woman? Did he
date? Jeremy couldn't remember
him ever mentioning anything on
the subject, any woman, any date,
any romantic life, ever.
Maybe I'll ask him, Jeremy thought,
next time I get the chance.

This is a work of fiction. The
events, the people and, especially,
the victims are all fictional as well.
No similarity to real people or real
events is intended. Next week:
Chapter 6 begins with new promise
for Rebecca.

Caught With His Pants Down
Gulfport police caught a suspect trying to steal a set of
bed sheets from Dollar Town by stuffing them down his
pants. The owner witnessed the act, locked the suspect in-
side the store, and called police. The suspect admitted that
he had put the sheets in his pants with the intent to steal
them; police arrested him for retail theft and possession of
marijuana. He has what the police call "an extensive crimi-
nal history", which includes four separate prison terms for
multiple charges including almost 20 theft convictions, mul-
tiple cocaine possession charges, burglary, false imprison-
ment, battery, and resisting arrest.


Lewd and Lascivious
Gulfport police officer Zach Mills ran the license plate on
a car and discovered that the owner had a suspended li-
cense. When he stopped the car, Mills found a 15-year-old
reported runaway boy with 43 year-old Gary Bement. As
Mills questioned the two, he learned that Bement contacted
the boy through his My Space page, arranged to meet him
in Clearwater, and brought him back to Bement's Gulfport
home. Bement is being held in Pinellas County Jail with
$50,000 bond.


Cost of Living Results in Crime
Gulfport police closed two fraud-related cases with the ar-
rest of Carron Thomas of St. Petersburg. Thomas worked for
a call center where she obtained personal information from a
client who lives in Gulfport; she used this information to open
a credit card account. When the new card came in the mail, it
also came with three blank checks- which Thomas wrote out
to her landlord for rent. Police have charged Thomas with
four felony crimes, including identity theft.

During at least part of last
week's meeting, when they
were talking about whether or
not to look for a full-time city attorney,
the City Council seemed more like a
silent movie comedy troop than they
did a. deliberative, decision-making
body. Their main shtick was running
around in verbal circles, bumping into
each other.
Too bad the TV broadcast of the
meeting wasn't in black and white,
without sound; because I have to
agree with Bob Newcomb, who got
up and said the whole exercise was
"embarrassing." I truly didn't know
whether to laugh or get up and walk
away. In the end, I did both.
Maybe that's why Bright House
Networks, our television cable
provider, is trying to restrict our
viewing access to council meetings and
other city broadcasts. They're trying
to spare us the embarrassment.
I wish. But I think the more likely
reason is greed. .
As I'm sure you know by now,
Bright House has announced plans to
move all the public access channels,
including Gulfport's Channel 15, .to
the higher reaches, of their digital
broadcast band. That means most
of us will no longer be able to access
Gulfport TV unless we get some kind
of digital access box, which we have to
pay for, of course. How much we have
to pay still seems to be up in the air.
Bright House is making this move to
"better serve" its customers. Of course.
This is the same cable company that
used to be called Time-Warner, which
had a lousy reputation for customer
service. So they changed their name.
I remember when our former city
manager, Bob Lee, told a story about
calling Time-Warner three or four
times to try and get a quote on the
monthly charge for installing cable
in his home. He got a different quote
each time he called.
I also remember calling Time-Warner
some years ago to ask that my billing
date be changed. I was paying bills
twice a month, back then, and their
bill invariably arrived after I paid on
the 15th, but was due before I paid on


ey, Bright House,

VIEWPOINT

the 30th. Their answer was a simple
"no."
So much for customer service. How
in the world do they think the City
Council is going to go about deciding
on a new city attorney without the
rest of us watching and cringing?
This whole discussion started some
months ago when Mayor Yakes said
that he would like for the council to
consider combining the two positions
of city clerk and city attorney into
one position. The idea, I think, was to
save some money and also to have an
attorney on staff and on the premises
full time.
Well, they talked about it, then
talked about it again, just like they're
doing now, and then talked about it
some more. I don't 'remember them
ever actually making a decision, pro
or con. Instead, they decided to elevate
Donna Boyd, the former deputy clerk,
to the city clerk position. That decision
pretty much made the attorney/clerk
question moot.
Then they started talking about
the possibility of hiring a full-time
attorney, and they've been stuck in
that phase of the discussion ever
since. How many meetings have they
had this question on the agenda, now,
three or four?
Somewhere, early on, they tried to
pass the ball off to the city manager.
He came back at the next meeting
and said it was improper for him to
be involved, and passed the ball back.
Then they asked the city attorney
to draft a resolution to authorize
what they wanted to do, whatever
that was. And they discussed setting
up a committee, with Mary Stull
representing the council, to define the
job and look into hiring someone.
Then last week, they decided they
didn't like the resolution the city
attorney came up with and sent it
back for a redo something that more
clearly outlines what they want to do.
And they had a somewhat contentious
discussion about whether or not they
have actually decided anything, so
far. And, of course, there was more
discussion about what it is, exactly,
that they want to do.


In the meantime, one council member,
Bob Worthington, keeps saying that
he believes it is irresponsible to hire
a full-time attorney, which will cost
more than our current part-time
attorney, in the midst of all the budget
cutting and fee raising they have been
dping. And another council member,
Stull, who is supposed to be on the
committee to look at hiring the full-
time. attorney, appears to be agreeing
with him.
And there's a significant amount of
negative comment from residents, too
- most of them citing the cost of a full-
time attorney.
So then the three council members in
favor, Yakes, Ted Phillips and Michele
King, put their heads together at one
end of the panel, totally ignoring the
other two council members and the
public input, and decided where they
want to go from here, which is forward.
It was a sight to behold, reminiscent
of recent County Charter Commission
meetings.
That Phillips and King would act
this way was not too surprising. Both
of them, in my view, tend to listen
mostly to their own voices. But the
mayor? He always has been a good
listener, sensitive to input, or at least
used to be. So it's a little surprising
to see him so Hell bent on pushing
this proposal through. He announced
later in the meeting that he .would
not be running for mayor again and
most likely would not even finish his
current 3-year term. Is that a factor?
Where do they go from here? We'll
have to watch and see.
I can understand them wanting a
full-time attorney. There would be
many benefits. And I know there's
been some dissatisfaction with the
amount of service they've been getting
from the present part-time attorney.
But I can't understand the way
they've been going about it. Neither is
it easy to understand why they want
to do it now, before this very tight
budget they've been working on in
marathon sessions is even passed into
law. Nor do I understand the rush; we
have a city attorney and, now, a city
clerk in place.
And I certainly don't understand the
process. There must be a better way
to get from the beginning to the end
of this decision-making progression
without looking like the Keystone
Kops. It's like they jumped into the
middle of the procedure and have been
thrashing about ever since, trying
to figure out how toget to the end
without going back to the beginning.
I fear it's not going to turn out well.

hair line).
The salon is a unisex shop with stylists Randall
Stroud and De Prichett, licensed professional cosme-
tologists and Central Florida College graduates, on

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

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