first outdoor sidewalk cafe permit. The own-
ers/chefs Catherine and Jose Luis Pawelek
said "It has been a long. but worthwhile

Luis Pawelek.
Within a two day period the Pawelek's
collected over 100 signatures from local
customers dining in their restaurant, who
were all in favor of outdoor seating. Their C
persistence paid off when the Sidewalk c
Cafe Seating ordinance was passed. ti

Chamber Names
Business of the Month
The Gulfport Chamber of Commerce
has named The Bug Man as their
October business of the month. This
family owned business is headed
up by Rick McChesney. Rick has
been very active in the community
of Gulfport and is a past president
of the Chamber of Commerce. The
Bug Man recently relocated to 5226
Gulfport Boulevard which provided
them with more space. The Bug Man
offers a complete line of pest controls
for the do-it-yourself-ers as well as
being an authorized UPS shipping
and mailing depot.
Rick is proud to have the second
generation of McChesneys on board,
his son Jeff. Jeff is already an expert
on bees and put that knowledge to
the test recently by removing a mas-
sive hive in St. Petersburg which
had become a nuisance and health
hazard.
"We thank Rick for his many con-
tributions to Gulfport over the
years particularly to the Chamber
of Commerce and the preservation
of Scout Hall." stated Lori Rosso,
President. "We wish Rick and his
family continued good business at
their new location."

Governor's Proposals to Legislature for Property Tax Reform


Gulfport City Manager Tom Brobeil
reports that he received a Legisla-
tive Alert from the Florida League
of Cities outlining Governor Crist's
proposed constitutional amendments
addressing property tax reform and
the extension of the Special Session
dealing with those reforms. If ad-
opted the proposals would create a
constitutional provision restricting
all local government revenues, which
include taxes, fees, licenses, and
charges for services. The amendment
would restrict local governments to
the amounts collected in the prior
fiscal year, with an adjusted cost of
living-type increase. Cities would


also have to put any excess money
into budget stabilization fund or re-
fund the excess to taxpayers.
Voters could override these limits
with a 2/3 vote for increases up to
5%, a 3/4 vote for increases up to
10%, and a unanimous vote for any
increase over 10%.
Governor Crist's proposals include
doubling the homestead exemption
from the current $25,000 to $50,000,
reducing local government revenues
by an estimated $900 million in 2008,
making the Save Our Homes tax cap
portable, a reduction of approxi
mately $100 million in local govern-
ment revenues in 2008, and; offering

first-time homebuyers an additional
homestead exemption equal to 25%
of the just value of the homestead
(cutting an estimated $100 million
from government revenues in 2008).
The governor's plan also includes an
exemption on the first $25,000 of tan-
gible personal property (estimated to
reduce local government revenues
by $200 million in 2008). Under the
Legislature's required rollbacks, cit-
ies and counties have reduced prop-
erty taxes by over $2 billion for the
current fiscal year. The Legislature
has also imposed restrictions on city
and county property tax revenues for
next fiscal year. If adopted, the new
proposals would result in additional
estimated reductions to local govern-
ment revenues of $1.3 billion in 2008,
and by 2011 would cost local govern-
ments an additional estimated $1.8
billion.
According to city documents, City
Manager Tom Brobeil says "the Flor-
ida Constitution must not restrict the
ability of cities to generate revenues
required to provide services request-
ed by their constituents, and while
providing additional tax exemptions
may be an appropriate function for
the state, restricting the ability of cit-
ies to generate the revenues required
to provide community services is not
an appropriate state function."
The Legislature met on October 12,
for a House Workshop, and will meet
again for further House and Senate
meetings through October 29.

CELEBRATING 30 YEARS
We currently offer our oil changes at $20.93 (with coupon) using Kendall oil and
Z 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.

Local Advocate Honored
For the last 20 years, St. Petersburg
advocate Grace-Anne Alfiero has
shown outstanding leadership, com-
Smunity service and advocacy in her ef-
H forts to raise positive awareness about
S. ..* Florida's disability community. Grace-
"i Anne was honored with the 2007 Dr.
*George L. Spelios Leadership Award
.. by The Able Trust during the annual
Ability Awards ceremony held October
9th in Tallahassee.
"This a true honor," says Grace-Anne,
executive director of the Creative Clay
CulturalArts Center."I'm very respect-
ful of all the work that The Able Trust
does. They've been a long time sup-
i porter of Creative Clay. We've worked
hand in hand on many projects, so this
yis a great way to go full circle with our
\ '" collaborative mission."
In 1995, Grace-Anne developed the
idea for and co-founded Creative Clay Cultural Arts Center, Inc., with the goal
of making the arts accessible for all members of the community, particularly
individuals with developmental, physical or behavioral disabilities. Her tre-
mendous efforts have been very successful over 50 professional artists now
invest many hours of their time mentoring and collaborating with Creative
Clay's member artists, as the students are called. Currently, there are 57
member artists with 12 on the waiting list.

More Tax Cuts
From Tallahassee

Governor Charlie Crist has said he
intends to push for additional tax re-
forms when lawmakers meet in regu-
lar session next spring. According
to Gulfport City Manager's weekly
report to Council, "while the Demo-
crats agree with most of Crist's plan
they object to doubling the $25,000
homestead exemption, which could
cost local governments an estimated
$1.2 billion annually.-"
Democratic Senate leader Steve
Geller said he believes the push to
double the homestead exemption
goes too far, and that "he doesn't
want to kill local government,"
Brobeil also said. Brobeil added that
Niceville Republican Senator Don
Gaetz said Crist's proposals "don't
go far enough, and wants a fix that
would impose tax cuts by law instead
of by constitutional amendment and
cuts taxable value for every prop-
erty while capping local government
spending."
Legislators have until October 31
to come up with a plan to replace the
property tax amendment that would
have appeared on the January ballot
had a judge not thrown it out, calling
it "misleading". If lawmakers cannot
reach a consensus before October 31,
the vote will not take place until No-
vember 2008.

cated at 2599 Central Avenue in the
middle of the Grand Central District.
If you have not been down to visit for

The holiday season is approaching

(YOU & THE

f LAW i

How is Your
Legal Health?
Part 3
Marital Status
During your legal checkup, a review
of your marital status may uncover
certain aspects of the marriage which
you may wish to address. For exam-
ple, couples may desire to enter into
prenuptial agreements to separation
agreements to help avoid disputes in
the event of a divorce.
Prenuptial agreements or separa-
tion agreements can address prop-
erty rights, child support, child cus-
tody and visitation rights you may
have regarding your children. These


agreements can be finalized before
or during your marriage. Unmarried
couples who are living together may
desire to enter into an agreement
to specify expected rights and re-
sponsibilities which are similar to a
prenuptial or'separation agreement.
Prenuptial and separation agree-
ments can additionally specify how
to value assets which were jointly
obtained such as a home, retirement
plans and investments.
Accidental Injuries
Accidents can occur in your automo-
bile, at home or at your workplace.
As a result, you may be entitled to
compensation from someone who
caused or contributed to your injury.
Compensation for personal injuries
may include lost income, reimburse-
ment of medical expenses, money for
disabilities as a result of the accident
and pain and suffering which you en-
dured during a recovery period. Many
times, compensation is paid through
an insurance company which has
coverage for those who contributed to

Legal problems may arise in the
workplace. Federal laws protect em-
ployees against discrimination by
employers. However, there are spe-
cific procedures which must be fol-
lowed and time restrictions on the
filing of a claim or lawsuit.
Purchase or Sale of a Home
Legal problems may arise in the
workplace. Federal laws protect em-
ployees against discrimination by
employers. However, there are spe-
cific procedures which must be fol-
lowed and time restrictions on the
filing of a claim or lawsuit.
The purchase or sale of a home
probably is one of the largest invest-
ment decisions you will make in your
lifetime. As a result, it is important
to avoid unfavorable contract provi-
sions in your sales agreement. Also,
the real estate agent's listing con-
tract should be carefully reviewed
so that you understand what your
rights and obligations are under the
agreement. If you are buying or sell-
ing a home, a review of all documents
by an attorney may save you time,
money and aggravation so that your
interests are protected and the sale
can be completed.

Public Comment

& Council Quotes
Excerpts heard at the October 16, 2007, Gulfport city council meeting

"There is a difference between representative government and
participatory government A point of order may only be made
by another council member, not by a member of the audience in
attendance to the meeting. The Florida Sunshine Law requires that
meeting take place in the public eye, not that the publics participation
is allowed or required." Gulfport City Attorney Tim Driscoll addressing
recent public accusations of Sunshine Law violations at the last city council
meeting.

"I want to thank the city attorney for reminding me of the differences
between participatory versus representative government. I want to
apologize for my comments at the last city council meeting. However,
there are still no rules actually governing the conduct of the council
and no established rules of order. I would certainly like to see these
brought forward and addressed by this council" Bob Newcomb, city
resident.

"I thought that the point of order was being addressed to me for
something I was doing which is why I allowed it to be aired." Michael
Yakes, mayor of Gulfport.

"I'd like to invite residents to enjoy the 4th annual Pink Flamingo
Tour of Homes on Saturday, November 3. Tickets are only $10
and include a collectible printed program. Come to the Gulfport
Historical Society at 5301 28th Avenue South from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
to get your tickets and participate in the tour. The homes this year
are featuring the historic Marina District of town." Michele King,
council member.

City Cleanup
Help keep our city clean! Come on
Saturday, November 3 and help us
in this effort. We'll meet at Hibiscus
Hall at 8 a.m. for a light breakfast
and later in the day for a light lunch
donated by Palms of Pasadena Hosp-
tial. Call Alma at 360-8594 to sign
up.
Civic Association
The first meeting for the new sea-.
son was held on Wednesday, October
10 at 1:30 p.m in Hibiscus Hall. Af-
ter Fred Held, President, led all in
the Pledge of Allegiance, Alma Held,
Treasurer, reported as of August 31
we had $1,493.66 in the regular ac-
count and $1,026.73 m the Bingo ac-
count.
The speaker. Natalie Leggette, Hor-
ticulturalist of the city, was intro-
duced and talked at length about the
dos and don't for lawns. Overwater-
ing can damage. One should irrigate
only as needed and not during the
hottest time of the day (4-5 a.m. is

best) and use recycled or eucalyptus
mulch and fertilizer. Properly trim
and prune only if absolutely neces-
sary. Try to use more native plants.
They are adapted to our climate, soil
and weather patterns. Leave clip-
pings on the lawn, it helps to recycle
nutrients. Prevent fertilizer from go-
ing into water. Peanut grass is chem-
ical free and blooms in 9-10 months
and is a good ground cover. Beware
of putting grease down the sink.
Over time it builds up like plaque
in an artery and will allow less and
less waste water to pass through.
The consequence can be an overflow
of waste water. Irrigate only when
your lawn and landscape need wa-
ter and maintain a 3" layer of mulch
which will he!p retain soil moisture,
prevent erosion and suppress weeds.
Natalie explained one should always
check for leaks because a slow drip
can add up to 15 or 20 gallons per
day while a faucet leak wastes 100
gallons in 24 hours.
Recycling is also very important. For
instance, instead of using a dispos-
able cup, use a regular one because
styrofoam can stay in the landfill for
10 years, same as cigarettes. The
new light bulbs, although a bit more
expensive, can last 10 times longer.
Use recycled paper goods and get
real shopping bags instead of plastic
ones. Walk or get in a car pool and
raise your thermostat two degrees.
These are all good hints to help in
our daily lives. After her lecture
Miss Leggette received big applause
and she also said that if any of the
condominiums would like for her to
come and speak to their owners, she
would be happy to do so.
There will be a Thanksgiving Din-
ner on Saturday. Nov. 17 at 5:30 p.m
Members $10, nonmembers $12.
Call Agnes at 347-5292 or Alma at
360-8594 for reservations. In Janu-
ary we'll have our yearly Wine and
Cheese party; in February a Lasa-
gna dinner and in April the Picnic.
50/50 chances were drawn and cof-
fee and cookies donated by Palms of
Pasadena Hospital ended the pleas-
ant afternoon.

A Look At Some Well-Known Places


~; I


In honor of Gulfport's 97th birthday, the Gabber took a trip back in time to check out some of our city's notable buildings.
On the left, you'll see them as they were -- on the right, how they look today. Clockwise from the top on this page
and counter-clockwise on the facing page: 2701 Beach Boulevard (also known as the Sackrider House; built in
1876, historians consider this Gulfport's oldest home); Gulfport City Hall; the former AquaBella's,
the TLC Market, and apartments along Beach Boulevard.

Gabber October 18 October 24, 2007





















Not long ago, a friend (actually, a
fellow Gabber writer) asked me
why I've never written about
our civil union.
My answer was simple: because it's
personal, and because I try to not make
this column about me. There are bigger
and better things to write about.
Her response was simple, too: she
thought it would be interesting why
we did it, how we did it, how two guys
from Florida go about getting a civil
union in Vermont. She thought other
people might be interested as well.
So here goes. If you don't like it, blame
Cathy Salustri.
Actually, we had never given marriage
(or civil unions, for that matter) much
thought, mostly because it has never
been available to us, not in this country
and certainly not in this state. Maybe
when Hell freezes over.
But that changed about four or five
years ago, when Vermont passed a
state law allowing civil unions between
same sex couples. More importantly,
Michael's employer began offering
health care coverage for domestic
partners, as long as they have proof
of a legal union from some country or
state that offers such unions.
That's when we began thinking about
one, for very practical reasons: health
and dental insurance for me.
Then the issue of gay marriage raised
its head and became a hot topic all
over the country. The Massachusetts
Supreme Court ruled that the state
could not deny marriage to same sex
couples. San Francisco's mayor declared
that gay couples could get married in
that city. Several other, smaller towns
began offering same sex marriage.
The Republicans in Washington began
railing against it and trying to pass a
constitutional ban.
About then, we began to think about
doing it for political reasons, to make
a statement. And we began thinking
about a time frame, the fall of 2005,
when we were planning a two-week
driving trip through New England. The
date also happened to coincide with our
25th anniversary.
Marriage or civil union? We hadn't
decided yet, but fate stepped in and
decided for us. Massachusetts limited


Just a personal

little trip to Vermont,

that's all

Roger Turner
VIEWPOINT

its marriage law to state residents. And
all the cities, including San Francisco,
rescinded their marriage licenses. So
that left Vermont, and a civil union,
which was fine with us, actually.
How to go about it? We found an
easy, very modern way to answer
that question: the Internet. I Googled
"Vermont civil union" and found a long
list of websites, then picked one that
promised "all you need to know about
getting a civil union in Vermont." And
it was as good as its word.
Turns out, you can get a civil union
license from any city or town clerk in
the state. All you have to do is pay a fee
(of course) and verify that you are not
currently married or bound in a legal
civil union with someone else. Easy
enough.
The web site also offered a list of
places in Vermont that specialize
in accommodating people coming
to the state for a civil union. Most of
them were "resorts," offering civil
union "packages" that included a nice
ceremony in their garden or gazebo, a
sumptuous dinner in their restaurant,
accommodations in their honeymoon
suite, etc. all at a hefty price. Not
exactly our cup of tea.
But at the end of the list, there was
a single listing of the name of a man
in Hancock, Vermont and an e-mail
address. So I e-mailed him and told
him what we were looking for: a place
to get a civil union license and have a
small private ceremony, hopefully with
a hotel and restaurant nearby with
a place to have a celebratory drink
afterwards.
He answered and said, basically, "Thip
is the place." He was the assistant town
clerk in Hancock and could arrange for
the license. He was also the elected
justice of the peace and could (and
would) perform the ceremony. And
there was a hotel, with restaurant and
liquor license, right across the street.
It sounded perfect, so we arranged a
date with him (our 25th anniversary)
and called the hotel to reserve a room
for two nights ($50 a night ah, small
town New England). Then a month or
two later, we flew to Boston, picked up
our rental car, and began our two-week
driving trip.


On the morning of the day before the
ceremony, we left Bar Harbour and
drove across southern Maine, all of
New Hampshire and most of Vermont
and ended up in Hancock (after an
intensive map search) by mid-afternoon
(ah, small state New England). It was
a shock. Amid a handful of scattered
houses, downtown Hancock consisted
of a small town clerk's office, a
general store with one lone gas pump
out front, an old, unused, barn-like
building, and the Old Hancock Hotel,
our accommodations for the next two
nights.
After checking in and recovering
from the shock (the hotel was, indeed,
very old and much worn the floor in
our room sloped from the door to the
opposite wall and the bed successfully
aspired to be a hammock), we looked
up our justice of the peace, who,
incidentally, lived in the hotel. Then
we had a so-so dinner in the restaurant
and, with the aid of a bottle of wine from
the surprisingly sophisticated general
store, sat down in our room to fill out
the civil union application (where were
you born and what are your mother's
middle and maiden names).
The next morning, we had a good
-breakfast in the hotel restaurant,
turned in our paperwork, and drove
across the Green Mountains (about an
hour's drive) after stopping to check
out Texas Falls. Then we had lunch in
Middlebury and drove back across the
mountains to Hancock, just in time for
our 4 p.m. civil union ceremony outdoors
at the falls with only a handful of
tourists as (respectful) onlookers.
Afterwards, we had a drink on the
hotel's deck with our justice of the
peace, enjoying the end of a splendid
Indian Summer day, then drove to a
nearby bed and breakfast to have what
turned out to be an excellent dinner -
including conversation with the other
dinner guests and an entertaining
older couple from England about
American ways vs. British ways. Then
we got up the next morning and headed
for Boston and Logan Airport and the
trip home.
Despite my initial shock at this rather
decrepit little town, it turned out to be
a wonderful place to spend a couple
of days. We have nothing but fond
memories of the whole experience.
And as it turns out, we didn't do it for
practical reasons or for political ones
after all. We did it because we wanted
to. We did it for us.
I do, however, now have dental
insurance because of that civil union
in Vermont. And we have a piece of
paper filed away in a filing cabinet that
proves we're legal in at least one place
in this country.

-I .--.- -~


Sam was restless. She had spent
the morning straightening and
cleaning her rented room, but
had finished with that long ago. She
had thought about going for a ride on
her three-wheeled bicycle but didn't
know where to go or have any idea
about what to do. And Sunday tele-
vision didn't interest her much too
many sporting events.
That's why she liked going to Rebec-
ca's on Sunday afternoon. It was her
day off from work, and spending the
day at Rebecca's was the best way to
fill .the long, empty void. And besides,
she'd rather be with Rebecca than any-
where else in the world especially
her small world, which was basically
Gulfport, the restaurant, and Rebec-
ca's house.
She also had something on her mind:
the alligator. Ever since Rebecca had
mentioned it yesterday, Sam had been
thinking about how they could protect
themselves from the alligator or, more
to the point, how she could protect Re-
becca from the alligator. She hadn't
quite worked out in'her head, yet, how
the alligator would get to Rebecca's
house and get inside and grab her, but
she did know that she had to protect
her.
And she was going to start now.
She looked around her room, but the
only weapon she could find was a base-
ball bat. That would have to do. Then
she went to the garage and removed
her bicycle and headed for Rebecca's
house. She knew the way because she
went there every weekend. And when
she got there, Rebecca would be happy
to see her, and would know that she
was brave and strong like Harry Pot-
ter, and would understand how im-
portant it was to have Sam around to
protect her.

There was no answer when Sam rang
the door bell, so she rang it again. Still
no answer. She tried to look in the
windows, but they were all covered
on the inside with curtains. Where
could Rebecca be? She knew that Re-

Gabber October 18 October 24, 2007


becca worked during the week, but
this was Sunday. She should be here.
Sam couldn't imagine Rebecca being
anywhere except in this house on the
weekend. Was something wrong? She
didn't know. She would just have to sit
down on the steps, with her baseball
bat by her side, and wait to find out.

Rebecca hadn't thought about Sam
all day. And it was turning out to be a
very nice day, indeed.
She and James had gone to Baywalk
in downtown St. Petersburg to see an
afternoon movie, choosing a romantic
comedy, a remake of an old comedy
from 30 years ago. It was silly and,
ultimately, pointless, but James liked
Ben Stiller and they had had a good
time, laughing probably more than the
movie deserved.
Then they had gone for an early din-
ner and James had chosen the Park-
side Grill, which pleased Rebecca be-
cause she had been planning to try it
but had not, so far. It turned out to be
a good choice, busy and a bit noisy, but
very nice and with good food. They had
gotten a table behind the divider, next
to a window, which provided just the
right amount of privacy and insulation
from the noise without being too inti-,
mate.
And over wine and dinner, they had
talked about everything, or just about
everything. Well, not everything. Not
Sam.
James had asked about her family,
and she had told him about her par-
ents' deaths three years ago. Then he
had asked if she had any brothers or
sisters, and she had told him the truth:
"Just one, a sister, Sam Samantha."
But that was all she had said. And she
had quickly changed the subject not
too obviously, she hoped, by saying,
"What about you?"
James had very nicely explained his
family situation and then the conver-
sation had moved on to other subjects,
much to Rebecca's relief. She knew
she would have to explain about Sam,
and her responsibility for her, eventu-


ally, but she just wasn't ready to do
all that right now. It was too soon.
There were just some things you
didn't tell a guy on a first date and,
in Rebecca's mind, a mentally dis-
abled, dependent sister was one of
them.
All in all, everything had gone very
well. Rebecca couldn't have been
more pleased. And they were on their
way home, now, at a very reasonable
8 o'clock hour for a Sunday night.
If the car had had an old-fashioned
bench seat instead of bucket seats,
Rebecca would have snuggled up to
James on the drive home.
While she was debating whether to
invite him in for coffee, James turned
the corner onto Rebecca's street and
then slowed the car down.
"What's that?" he asked, pointing to
a three-wheeled bicycle pulled up on
Rebecca's lawn next to her mailbox.
"That wasn't there when -I picked
you up."
Rebecca's heart sank. She knew ex-
actly what it was. As they pulled up
to the curb, Rebecca could see in the
reflected light that Sam was sitting
on her front steps.
Sam rose slowly and came toward
the car as Rebecca rolled down her
window. She looked sweaty and di-
sheveled and more than a little de-
mented; she was carrying a baseball
bat like a club.
"It's me, Sam," Rebecca said.
"Rebecca?" Sam asked, sounding
confused. "I've been looking for you."
Rebecca looked at James helplessly.
"It's my sister," she said. ,
James answered with one word.
"Oh," then added after a pause,
"maybe I should leave you two alone.
I'll call you next week."
Rebecca climbed out of the car
and watched as James slowly drove
away, wondering if she would ever
"see him again if he would, indeed,
call next week.
"Where have you been?" Sam asked.
"I thought the alligator got you."
"No, Sam, the alligator didn't get
me," Rebecca answered quietly. "I
was on a date." Then she sighed.
"One lovely date."

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 7

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-

Gabber October 18 October 24, 2607


"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!"
