No Renovation
For Scout Hall


By Greg Stemm
After years of discussion, two bidding attempts
and the procurement of a federal grant in the
amount of $198,000, Gulfport city council split a
vote on Tuesday about whether to proceed with
the project, effectively ending it. Mayor Michael
Yakes and council member Michele King voted
yes and council members Bolb Worthington and
the.vice mayor Ted Phillips voted no. Council
member Mary Stull was absent due to illness.
See Scout Hall page 27


Library Loses
Positions, Hours Cut
Three staff positions currently vacant will
be eliminated at the Gulfport Library and
the facility will soon have reduced hours
of operation. Both moves were taken by
city council in on-going budget reductions.
The three positions eliminated include a full
time librarian and two part time library as-
sistants. The library administrator has been
able to rearrange work schedules with existing
staff to accommodate the current hours of op-
eration, but the budget for 2007/2008 does not
allow for the consistent overtime that would
be required to maintain this level of services.
The savings realized by reducing the staff
levels totals $61,946, although there is also
a reduction in revenue from the Pinellas
County Library Cooperative in the amount
of $4,831. The net budgetary impact is a sav-
ings of $57,115.
Currently the library is open 9 a.m. to 8
p.m. Monday through Thursday; 9 a.m. t6
9 p.m. on Friday and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on
Saturday. The new hours will be 10 a.m. to 7
p.m. Monday through Friday and 10 a.m. to
4 p.m. on Saturday.

"Come Blow Your
Horn" Opens Tonight
Tickets are now on sale for the up-
coming Neil Simon comedy, "Come
BlowYour Horn". This first published
play from Neil will be presented by
the GulfpoQt Community Players
from Novemrber 8 through 18 at the
Catherine A. Hickman Theater of
Gulfport. Tickets are only $15 each
and are available at Eileen's Resale
Boutique, the Beach Bazaar, the
Gulfport Chamber of Commerce,
the Gulfport Casino, at the door,
or by calling 322-0316. Curtain
times are Thursday-Saturday at
8 p.m., and Sundays at 2 p.m.
The play takes place in New York
City in 1960. Television had estab-
lished itself as popular entertain-
ment, although still mostly in black
and white. President Kennedy was in
the White House and the beginnings
of the "Beat Generation" had started.
For this production, the Players
have chosen to honor Neil's early
television origins by staging the play
in the spirit of a black-and-white
1960 TV sitcom. Join two brothers


as they try to live their own hilari-
ously complicated lives and escape
their parents' control, while not los-
ing the family ties that have struc-
tured their lives for many years.

show or the Gulfport Community
Players, please visit their website

Pancakes A'Plenty
By Cathy Salustri


John Masse masterminds
pancakes at Saturday's Li-
on's Club pancake breakfast.
Every month the Gulfport
Lions have a pancake break-
fast. For four dollars, diners
can get all-they-can-eat pan-
cakes, eggs, sausage, coffe,
milk, and juice. The proceeds
from each breakfast go to Li-
ons sight programs as well as
to community projects.
Next month Masse plans
to surrender his post to San-
ta, who will fly in from the
North Pole. Sources close to
Mr. Claus say he plans to use
Mrs., Claus recipe for eggs
but will make the pancakes
using his own special recipe.

Another Successful
Halloween Bash
Free trolley rides began the ac-
tivities by trekking through the
local neighborhoods to admire the
decorated sites that participated in
the Halloween Home and Business
Decorations Contest. Then at 7 p.m.,
the Recreation Center's doors opened
to an overwhelming amount of
1000-plus "Franktastically" dressed
costumed individuals of all ages.
Plenty of candy, prizes, food, carnival
games and music were available for all
to enjoy. Many entered the Haunted
House, but not all made it out!
A big Bash thank you to all the vol-
unteers, who, with their exceptional
talents, helped to create another
"boo-ming" event: Skip Whitten,
Paul Latragna, Ricky Cottrell, Dylan
Coppola, Jim and Elaine Eastman,
Lou Scherer, Gladys Gonzalez, Lucy
Malizia, Juliette Pastorjak, Claudette
Mahdi, Brandon Alcantara, John
Greer Pam McGinnis, Mary Ann
McGinnis, Darcy Reed, Joseph Reed,
Christina Seachrist, Moriah Noyes,
Greg Swieczkowski, Janice Ryan,
Rita Thompson, Midge Wayland,
Stephanie Brobeil, Larry and Janet
Shepard, Constance Eitler. A genuine
thanks, also, to all the dedicated City
staff that supported and worked this
year's event. The Boo-Room couldn't
survive the crowds without the help
of the Gulfport Optimist Club. A
plethora of thanks goes out to all the
sponsors who donated towards this
event to make it the best one ever.
We thank you all for your generous tal-
ents and energy towards a happy and
safe event for the entire community.

Gulfport Beach Water Quality Report
October 2007
By Cathy Salustri
Every month The Gabber publishes the results of the city of Gulfport's
beach water quality tests. If, at any time, the tests show that the water qual-
ity poses a health risb 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.
Scientists 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 coliform 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.


Date of Enterococcus Fecal
Sampling Coliform
10-20-07 ............................... 1...................................... 11
10-9-Q7 .............................. 38.................................. 11
10-16-07 ............................... 1...................................... 11
10-23-07 ............................... 4 ..................................... 11
10-30-07 ............................. 4 ..................................... 11

The City of Gulfport currently tests for both types of bacteria. Test re-
sults will help classify Gulfport Harbor 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 indicate a "good" rating.

Buying a Church One Shirt at a Time


. .. . ._.=...

Photo by Cathy Salustri
"We're trying to buy the church," Grace Nohlgren explained as she held up a shirt for
sale at Saturday's garage sale at Tradewinds Church. The congregation, who worship at
6740 Park Street South in South Pasadena, need to raise a million dollars to buy a place
of worship. They raised some of that money at last Saturday's garage and bake sale. The
church also had silent and live auctions, a car wash, and breakfast and lunch for sale.

No Cuts for Rec Center
Despite ongoing budget cuts,
Gulfport City Council voted uriani-
mously on Tuesday to fill two part
time vacancies and to maintain the
current level of service for the "After
School" and "Summer Recreation
Program."
City Manager Tom Brobeil had pro-
posed that the two vacancies be elim-
inated and that the two programs be
capped at levels lower than what is
currently available. The plan called
for reducing the number of children


who could participate in the after
school program from 75 to 50 and in
the summer recreation program from
200 down to 175. Brobeil said the
reduction would be necessary if the
positions were eliminated because of
licensing requirements.
The reduction in cost by eliminat-
ing the two positions would have
been $22,078, but the reduction in
revenue would have been $16,200 for
a net budget reduction of $5,878.
A number of council members and
members of the public expressed that
they did not feel the low reduction in

LAW

What is the Role of a Per-
sonal Representative in
Probate?
In our last article, we together ex-
plored what the probate process in-
volves. In this segment, the role of the
personal representative in probate
will be examined. A personal repre-
sentative is a person or entity that is
appointed by the Probate Court to be
the overseer of the administration of
a deceased person's estate. A person-
al representative is required by the
Probate Court to make sure that the
deceased's estate is administered in
accordance with Florida Law.
Generally, a personal representa-
tive is obligated to identify, accumu-
late and protect those assets which
are part of the probate estate. This
process is also known as the mar-
shalling of probate assets. Because
the personal representative has a


duty to the beneficiaries of the pro-
bate estate to protect assets in the
estate, this responsibility is court-su-
pervised by the filing of an inventory
with the Probate Court.
A personal representative is re-
quired to publish a "Notice of Admin-
istration" in a newspaper of local cir-
culation. This notice specifies who the
personal representative and attorney
of the estate are as well as initiates
the creditor claims period of ninety
(90) days. The Notice of Administra-
tion also states the requirements of
filing claims and other papers relat-
ing to the creditors as well as defend
lawsuits which arise against a de-
ceased person's estate.
Normally, a lawyer will be retained
to guide a personal representative
through the probate process. It is the
obligation of a personal representa-
tive to hire an attorney if the person-
al representative needs assistance in
the probate of the estate. A personal
representative is further obligated to
pay valid creditor claims of the pro-
bate estate, pay taxes of the estate,
file estate tax returns and distribute
assets to beneficiaries of a probate
estate.

Scout Hall, from page 1
Because the vote was a tie the project
was effectively defeated and will not
move forward.
"Democracy has spoken," said Yakes.
"Send the check back."
He and King, as well as some mem-
bers of the public had argued that the
building had historical significance
and should be preserved. Yakes did
not want the city to reject the grant
money, even though it did not fully
fund the project. Others were con-
cerned that there was no specific pur-
pose proposed for the building and
that cost overruns might push the
expenses even higher in a time when
the city is cutting back positions and
certain services.
"I'm nervous that even with. a con-
tingency fund in the budget that
change orders could push up the final
figures on the project," said Phillips.
"We need to preserve some of our
past," said King. "If you don't know
where you've been, how can you know
where you are going?"
"I just don't understand what this
building is going to be used for," said
Beverly Newcomb during the public
comment. "Without a purpose I don't


think this expense is justified."
On July 18, 2006 the city approved
an agreement with Renker-Eich
Parks Architects for architectural
and construction management ser-
vices. On August 15, 2006 council
approved a site plan for the planned
renovation.
The city advertised and invita-
tion to bid for the renovation project
on January 28, 2007 and the lowest
bid received was in the amount of
$267,880. Council rejected this and
all other bids and directed staff to re-
bid the project in six months.
The public works department re-
advertised the invitation to bid on
September 16, 2007 and received 7
proposals, the lowest in the amount
of $232,975. If that bid had been ac-
cepted there were still other costs as-
sociated with the project. Staff had
recommended a 15 percent contin-
gency fund in the amount of $34,946,
asbestos needed to be removed at a
cost of $3,695, a tree would need to
be removed at a cost of $900 and the
building would need to be treated for
termites at a cost of $2,750. The total
estimated cost of the project would
have been $275,266.


City manager Tom Brobeil had sug-
gested that the additional $49,266
over the budget for the project come
from the Capital Projects Fund,:
which includes monies received from
the Penny for Pinellas tax.
The building was constructed in
1920 for use as a Pentecostal church
and was moved from its former lo-
cation near 26th Avenue South and
49th Street in 1949. Its current lo-
cation at 5315 28th Avenue South is
the site of the original Gulfport City
Hall. The structure was adapted to
various uses over the years, including
community center and meeting hall
for the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts.
It was not readily apparent from
the council's decision about the fu-
ture of the building now.

Tips on Yard Sailing
By Pat Dunham
If you are planning on having a
yard sale, you would be wise to get
out there ahead of time ana see
what other people are doing and
how they are pricing their items.
Furniture and tools are among the
most sought after items at yard
sales. Whether you advertise your
sale or not, put signs out with ar-
rows for people driving by. Hang
your clothes on a line. Make sure
you have a lot of change for big bills.
Keep your money box in a safe place.
Whenyouaregoingtoyardsales,come
prepared with small bills and change.
Wear comfortable shoes, a hat and
even bring your own tape measure.
Having your own yard sale helps
your declutter and make money.
Attending yard sales can help
you save money and find some
wonderful bargains for yourself.

Dinner at the Water Witch
.Tuesday through Thursday 5:00-9:00
Friday and Saturday 5:00-10:00
Closed Sunday & Monday

The Chefs at Water Witch welcome you to dinner. Time allowed, we will visit with you
during your dining experience and explain the delicacy and origin of your meal.

Co-Chef Kevin O'Berry comes to Gulfport after having lived in the area for ten years. A fifth generation
Florida native, he moved to Pinellas County and remains here with his fiance and muse Callie, where
they are actively involved in performing arts and community theater. He attributes his culinary
abilities to a strong foundation built through education and work in the trenches. He is a 1988 culinary
graduate of Johnson and Wales University in Providence, Rhode Island. Kevin spent a year in France
developing his culinary skills by attending the culinary institute Ecole Superieure de Cuisine Francais
Jean Ferrandi while working in several Michelin rated restaurants, including the famous Le Bristol
Hotel. Having cooked in every environment from cruise ships in Hawaii to catering in New England,
Kevin prefers the atmosphere of the smaller, eclectic boutique style restaurant where he can practice
the craft that is his passion.
More familiar local establishments where he has cooked include the old Clearwater Beach Hotel, an.
historic landmark which has been lost to development and The Safety Harbor Resort and Spa where,
as Executive Chef for three years, he was responsible for bringing the menu into the 21st century
while appearing on the Travel Channel's series Great Destinations. The notoriety is fine but Kevin
prefers the more anonymous lifestyle Gulfport affords. The paparazzi can be so annoying.

Co-Chef LucMolinier comes to Gulfport after living In St. Petersburg for over 8 years. Born and raised
in Lyon France, the home of French cuisine, Luc spends his free time strolling his one year old baby girl
Amelie along Gulfport Beach. Luc developed his culinary skills by attending the prestigious Lyon
Culinary School and working with chefs at restaurants like the famous Caro De Lyon. Luc attributes his
abilities through the teachings of many gifted European chefs. Luc further developed his skill over the
years while cooking in the French Alps including Les Carellis. After spending too much time in the thin
ai, tuc decided to broaden his knowledge of European Cuisine by working in various restaurants
located in Barcelona Spain, Amsterdam and Venice Italy. Locally, he worked for Le Provence in
4,ond dChateau France in St. Petersburg. He greatly enjoys the intimacy and interaction with
ly found in a sig.liesf aurant.

SONE STOP SHOPPING FOR ALL YOUR COIN NEEDS


More Paving Approved
for 49th Street
Gulfport City Council approved
a contract with E. L. Trevena, Inc.
in the amount of $59,007.57 for
additional aesthetic asphalt pav-
ing as part of the onLgoing 49th
Street Redevelopment project. To
date a total of $545,017 has been
appropriated to the 49th Street
Streetscaping project, including
a budget adjustment of $245,017
approved by council in May 2007.
According to Don Sopak, public
works director, the current contract
drawings only provided, for a small
portion of the corridor to be paved
in areas where it needed to be re-
stored due to the installation of new
curbing. However, excavation of the
existing paving to install the ribbon
curb revealed older granite curbs
underneath these areas. The gran-
ite curb had to be removed to install
the ribbon curb requiring removal of
a larger area of paving and damag-
ing some of the adjacent substan-
dard paving, according to Sopak.
"Asphalt patching the excavated
areas would not have provided an
overall completed look to the new
project," wrote Sopak in his memo
to council. "If we just paved the
areas where the curb was removed
as you enter the city on 49th Street
from the north, the project would
look unsightly and unfinished. The
existing asphalt paving in the right
of way from 8th Avenue South to
10th Avenue South is substandard."

Tangerine Drainage
Contract Awarded
A construction contract to complete
Tangerine Avenue South drainage im-
provements was awarded by Gulfport
City Council on Tuesday. The con-
tract was awarded to the low bidder
E. L. Trevena, Inc. of Pinellas Park
in the amount of $866,443.63. This is
$424,271 under the projected budget
for the.project.
Funding for the project includes
a TDML Grant in the amount of
$645,357, a SWFWMD Grant in the
amount of $350,000 and funds from
the Penny for Pinellas tax in the
amount of $85,341.
According to Don Sopak, public works
director, since the low bid was signifi-
cantly under budget, his office will be
contacting the Florida Department of
Environmental Protection (FDEP),
which issued the TDML Grant and
SWFWMD, to see if these funds may
be used to complete other projects
such as footpaths for walkers and
runners, benches, landscaping and
educational kiosks.

Gabber November 8 November 14, 2007




















Well, the county tax bill came
in last week, our "2007 real
estate tax notice/receipt for
Pinellas County," otherwise known
as our "ad valorem taxes." Only bu-
reaucrats could come up with such a
stupefying name. Let's just call them
"property taxes," which is the phrase
that has been in the newspapers so
much lately.
I'm sure your bills came in, too, those
of you who own property. I hope that
your savings are as astronomical as
ours.
If we pay our property taxes by the
end of this month (which we will), our
taxes will be $11.34 lower than they
were last year. Yep, that's right, eleven
dollars and thirty-four cents, thanks
entirely to the Florida legislature and
to Charlie Crist. They called a special
legislative session earlier this year to
force local governments to roll back
taxes and, voila, massive cutbacks.
Try not to spend yours all in one
place. We're still deciding what to do
with ours. Buy a sports car? Take an
extra vacation? Add on that new room
we've been thinking about?
And then, of course, this savings is on
top of the $7.45 we saved on our prop-
erty,taxes last year, thanks to the City
of Gulfport. You remember. The city
rolled back its millage rate 10 percent
last year in response to complaints by
residents and local business owners.
We didn't get to spend that money,
though, because our 2006 property tax
bill actually went up $3.17 from 2005,
due to other factors. So that makes our
windfall this year even sweeter.
Another thing that makes our prop-
erty tax bill so sweet-this year is know-
ing that we're paying less tax than our
neighbors in some cases, much less,
I'm sure. Nearly everyone in our block
bought their houses after we did, some
as recently as early this year. Our
hearts go out to them, but not enough
to give up our advantages.
We bought? our house 17 years ago. By
today's standards, it was dirt 'cheap,
even though we didn't think so at

the time. We do now. And we've been
benefiting from the 3 percent "Save
Our Homes" tax cap ever since. Plus,
we live in our house, so we have the
$25,000 homestead exemption that all
homeowners have. A pretty sweet deal,
all told.
Which is why most homeowners don't
want to give it up. Any of it. So the leg-
islature got together again last month
and decided to solve the problems with
the property taxes by giving us more.
I love it.
Actually, when they met earlier in
the year, they came up with a differ-
ent plan, which was supposed to be on
a statewide ballot in January. But the
Supreme Court kicked it off the ballot
for technical reasons. And the legisla-
ture did some polling and discovered
that it probably would have been de-
feated anyway, because it messed
around with. the Save Our Homes
cap. So this time around, they decided
to leave Save Our Homes alone and
dropped a couple of other gifts on us,
instead.
Say "thank you, Tallahassee."
First, they doubled the homestead ex-
emption, figuring, I guess, that if it's
popular, doubling it will make it twice
as popular and make the legislators
twice as popular, too, I suppose.
Actually, they didn't really double the
homestead exemption. They increased
it by 60 percent or so, because the in-
crease doesn't apply to the taxes that
go to schools, which is about 40 percent
of the total. But that's too confusing to
explain, so they just say "doubled."
And next, they made the tax break on
homesteaded property "portable." That
one's a little hard to explain, too, but
basically it means that, if you sell your
old house and buy a new one, the tax
break you built up on the old one can
be transferred to the new one. It was
put in the bill so that people wouldn't
feel trapped in their old house because
of the lower taxes.
You'll notice that both of these new
tax breaks apply only to homesteaded
property, and benefit mostly people


who have owned their homes for quite
a while. In other words, they benefit
the people who have already been r,-
ceiving the most benefit from property
tax laws.
Those who have been suffering the
most, new homeowners and business
properties and non-homesteaded prop-
erties, will not get much benefit. So
the legislature threw them a bone or
two. There will be a 10 percent annual
cap on property tax increases for non-
homesteaded property (businesses,
rentals, etc.) similar to the 3 percei '
cap for homesteaded property (but nok
including the school taxes), and there
will be a tax break on the first $25,000
of tangible personal property for busi-
nesses.
There you have it. The state's prop-
erty tax problems are solved.
We get to vote on the changes, of
course, in January. My guess is that
they'll pass, even though it requires
60 percent approval, and even though
some opposition is forming from edu-
cators and organized labor and other
groups.
Because we homeowners in Florida
love our homestead exemption and we
love our Save our Homes tax cap and
I'll bet we'll also love portability. The
only thing that could be better is more
of the above. Maybe next year.
And since homeowners are probably
the biggest and best voting block, how
could the changes not pass.
So what am I complaining about?
I'm not, really. After all, I'm one of the
beneficiaries. My sweet deal is getting
even sweeter.
It's just that I'm not sure special ses-
sions are the best way to make sound
fiscal policy, or any kind of policy, for
that matter. And I'm not sure that
"give the voters what they want" is the
best of all possible guiding principles.
I am sure that I don't trust politicians
very much.
There was another way this issue, or
these issues, could have been handled.
They could have been referred to the
tax and budget reform commission
that meets periodically in this state.
They're scheduled to meet again soon
- next year, I think. They could take a
look at the requirements and the ineq-
uities of the system and come up with
a more reasoned, more thoughtful ap-
proach to fiscal policy and tax law.
But I suppose "we left it up to them"
doesn't make a very effective election
slogan.

Gulfport Veteran Remembers WWII and the Liberation of Dachau


By Greg Stemm

In the spring of 1945 the
world was in chaos. Europe
was in ruins. Hitler's Third
Jeich crumbling as the Allies
/pushed relentlessly forward.
Victory was in sight, but the
prospect of a bloody invasion
of the Japanese homeland
loomed large in every Ameri-
can soldier's heart.
Against that sweeping saga
of history, current Gulfport
,resident Ray Woods, then
just 19 years old, fought his,
way across the European
countryside as part of Gen-
eral Patton's Third Army,
Company C of the 22nd Ar-
mored 'Engineering Battal-
ion of the 20th Armored Di-
vision.
"Probably one of my most
vivid memories was when I
realized that there were peo-
ple coming at me who want-
ed to kill me," said Woods.
"You've got good training and
good equipment, but when
you've got people shooting at
you, it becomes very real."
Woods said he remembers
when the troop transport
ship in which he had crossed
the Atlantic in a two week
journey pulled into the port
of Le Havre, France which
had been newly liberated in
the Battle of Normandy.
"It was a mess. There were
big armored guns that had
* been bombed, sunken ships
band burned out buildings.
.There were still bodies lying
around. There was a stark
realization that you were in
a war zone," said Woods.
Quite a change for a small
town boy who was born in
1924 and grew up in Mc-
Cordsville, Indiana. "The
'1940 census said it had 300
t people in it and the 1960 cen-.
sus said it had 300 people in
it, which wasn't surprising
because every time a boy got
a girl pregnant he left town,"
Woods said with a wry grin.
Woods had tried to sign
up for the Army's Air Corp


when the war broke out
shortly after he graduated
from high school. A minor
heart problem kept him from
that goal, but didn't deter
the army from drafting him
into the ranks of armored
combat troops bound for the
European invasion.
For months after his arriv-
al on the continent life was
hard.
"We werit 31 days with-
out being able to change our
clothes. I think we scared
some of the German civilians.
half to death. We smelled
and we hadn't shaved or
showered. It was pretty
rough," said Woods.
Without a doubt one of
Woods most grim memo-
ries was helping to liberate
the concentration camp of
Dachau.
"There was an important
airfield just outside of Mu-
nich that we had fought
hard for three or four days to
liberate," said Woods. "The
municipality of Dachau is a
suburb of Munich. The night
before we went into the camp
there were prisoners who
had escaped and wandered
into our camp. They looked
like skeletons dressed in
filthy black and white paja-
mas. We tied to give them
something to eat, but they
couldn't keep it down. At the
time we had no idea where
they came from or who they
were.
The next morning we went
up the road and entered the
concentration camp. We
simply couldn't believe what
we were seeing. The cre-
matorium was still smoking
and there were rotting bod-
ies in rail road box cars. The
stench was indescribable. We
came into a huge warehouse
where the floor was covered
with dirty straw and bodies,
both living and dead all over
the place. We just couldn't
understand why they didn't
just kill them. Why would
anyone treat another human

Against that sweeping saga of history, current Gulfport resident Ray
Woods, then just 19 years old, fought his way across the European
countryside as part of General Patton's Third Army, Company C of the
22nd Armored Engineering Battalion of the 20th Armored Division.


being like this?" said Woods.
"The thing that bothered
me the most was that we
were only there a few hours
and there was very little we
could do to help these poor
souls," said Woods. "They
were starving but they
couldn't keep any of our ra-
tions down. For a long time
I wondered who helped these
people who were so in need
of imrfiediate care. I later
learned that army medics
and the Red Cross came in
and saved as many prisoners
as they could. They had to
give them sugar water first
and then slowly build them
up to solid foods. Some of
these people had been there
for four years. It was just
horrific."
Did the people of Dachau
know what was going on in
their suburb?
"They had to have known.
The stench permeated every-
where. They may not have
known the specifics, but they
must have known something
awful was going on," said
Woods.
He remember that during


the months he stayed in Eu-
rope after the war's end and
in the early days of the oc-
cupation, the U.S. military
seized every remaining mov-
ie theatre in Germany and
,made every resident in every
town go and watch newsreels
taken during the liberation
of the concentration camps.
"Some residents came out
of the theatres and vomited.
Some people said it was just
American propaganda. There
are even some people today
who deny the Holocaust took
place. To them I say, I know
it did. I was there," he notes
with a distant look in his
eyes that said more than any
of the words he used to de-
scribe the experience.
Woods had the opportunity
to visit Hitler's mountain re-
treat when he and a captain
took a jeep and drove about
30 miles to the little Bavar-
ian town of Berchtesgaden.
He was able to tour Berghof,
the three story facility/home
where Hitler often enter-
tained guests at his "Eagle's
Nest."
"Most of the doors had been

blow out by bombs, but I found a door
in the basement where the laundry
room had been," said Woods. "I found
a key still in the lock and I took it. I
still have a key to Hitler's house to
this day."
Woods says he has a lot of admi-
ration and fondness for the German
people.
"Out of all the people in Europe
I think they are most like Ameri-
cans," he said. "They have a strong
work ethic and the general people
were kind and giving to us. As we
marched through the countryside
people would bring us lemonade and
cookies. I was amazed at how indus-
trious they were in the first months
after the war. The immediately went
to work to rebuild their towns, rail-
roads and homes."
Later that summer Woods was
shipped back to the states on an old
English transport ship. "It had lousy
food. The English don't cook very
well," he laughs.
The plan was for him to have a little
bit of R&R before being sent to the
west coast where troops were begin-
ning to mass for the planned invasion
of the Japanese homeland.
"I had resigned myself to the fact
that there was very little chance that
I was going to live through that," said
Woods. "So when we learned about
the atomic bomb and the Japanese
surrendered I remembering being
stunned and thinking, 'hey, I'm going
to get to live to be an old man!'"
During that emotional summer he
met his wife Dottie at a family re-
union. She was the friend of a cousin
who had invited her to attend the
southern Indiana gathering.
"She was so pretty she made my
teeth hurt,"' said Woods winking at
his blushing wife across the Town
Shores table where he recounted his
memories. "We've been married 58
years. I'm not sure if I made the de-
cision or she did, but it was the best
one in my life," he said.
The pair moved to Florida about
11 years ago and have lived in their
Town Shores home for the past six of
them.
Woods is still an avid sailor and you
can see the 50 foot replica of the first
sailboat to go around the world from
his fifth floor condo. He built the boat
himself up north.
In parting Woods has a word of
caution to modern Americans.


"There are people right here in
Gulfport who would do exactly what
the Germans did in the right, situa-
tion with the right totalitarian gov-
ernment in power," he said. "The
Germans were good people but they
got bad leadership. The veneer of
civilization is very thin. Bad people
got into positions of power and did
very bad things. Today's political
pundits should remember that when
they say some of the radical things
they say."

First Signs of Christmas at First United Methodist
By Cathy Salustri
With Halloween a very recent memory, the First United Methodist Women
geared up for Christmas this past Saturday at the United Methodist Women's
Bazaar. The women offered hot dog lunches (enjoyed by not only Bazaar at-
tendees but the neighboring Pink Flamingo Home Tour volunteers and par-
ticipants) alongside varied Christmas-themed items. People stopped by to pur-
chase not only holiday items but plants, books, and baked goods.
Pictures clockwise from right: Arline Bean tends to a table of holiday decorations and 1
homemade teams .

City to Purchase Three
New Police Cars
By resolution the city of Gulfport au-
thorized the city manager to purchase
three replacement police vehicles, two
from Beck Auto Sales and one from
Duval Ford. These include a 2008
Ford CVPI at a cost of $24,052, a 2.008
Dodge Charger Police Patrol Vehicles
at a cost of $23,292 and a 2008 Dodge
Charger Police Investigative Vehicle
at a cost of $23,717. The total ex-
penditure is $71,056 which is $5,044
under the budgeted capital improve-
ment item.
According to G. Curt Willocks, di-
rector of public safety, the police
department historically replaces ve-
hicles when they reach approximately
80,000 miles. Willocks stated in his
memo to council that this has been
a standard supported by police com-
manders as well as the central garage
supervisor due to the critical nature
of these vehicles and the need to keep
them in top performing condition.

7 It didn't take long for the word
to get out. They had barely been
home for an hour when Joe's
cell phone started ringing. The first
caller was a reporter for a local tele-
vision station.
"Are you Joe McPherson?" he asked
without preamble.
"Yes," Joe answered, wondering if it
would do him any good to deny it.
The reporter identified himself and
then said, "I understand you're the
one who found the body in the park
today."
"I saw what I thought might be a
body and called the police, yes."
"Okay, then," the reporter said,
barely pausing, "will you come back
down to the park where you discov-
ered the body so we can interview
you onf camera for our evening broad-
cast?"
"No," Joe said.
"What?" The reporter sounded in-
credulous. "Why not?"
"Because I already told you all I
know I saw what I thought might be
a body and I called the police. That's
all I know."
"But..." the reporter stammered.
Apparently he didn't run into too
many people, these days, who don'f
jump at the chance to be on televi-
sion. "Don't you want to help solve
this case?"
"I don't see how being on television,"
Joe said patiently, "and repeating
what I just told you is going to help
solve this case. I've already told the
police what I know, and I'll answer
any further questions they have."
"But," the reporter repeated, "but
...don't you think the people have a
right to know?"
"Sure," Joe agreed. "Go ahead and
tell them whatever you want."
"We'd rather have you tell them,"
the reporter said.
"No thank you," Joe responded and
hit his "off' button. Then he turned
to Sarah, sitting beside him on her


sofa, and shook his head. "I guess I'm
going to have to start screening my
calls."
Sarah smiled at him, although
somewhat wanly. "Looks like this
could turn into a three-ring circus,"
she said.
"If it hasn't already," Joe agreed.
"I wasn't prepared for this," Sarah
offered quietly.
"How does anyone prepare for this,"
he countered. "Welcome to the age of
the media."
Both Joe and Sarah fell silent, think-
ing about the situation they had un-
wittingly gotten themselves into.
When they got home, their first con-
cern had been little Joey. They were
both worried about how the events of
the day would affect him.
Joe was less experienced than Sar-
ah when it comes to kids, of course,
although he was hardly a novice. He
had had, after all, a big hand in rais-
ing Tommy Petersen for a couple of
years.
Nevertheless, he was concerned that
a day like today could scar little Joey
for life. He needn't have worried.
Joey was fine. Matter of fact, he
seemed to be. the least affected of
any of them by what had happened.
For him, it had been exciting. And he
didn't seem to connect what little he
saw to anything as gruesome as mur-
der or dead bodies.
So they both had breathed a sigh
of relief and Joey had trotted off to
his bedroom to play, followed by the
ever-faithful Max.
Joe put his arm around Sarah and
pulled her close.
"Sorry about all this," he said.
"It wasn't exactly the day we had
planned, was it?"
"Don't apologize," she answered. "It
wasn't your fault. We just forgot to
plan for all the contingencies, that's
all."
"Yeah," Joe said. "Have lunch,
check. Go to ballpark, check. Look

around for dead bodies, check. Call
police and notify media, check."
Sarah gently elbowed him in the
ribs, but also laughed. "Precisely,"
she said. "Planning is the key."
They fell silent again, and Joe's
thoughts returned to his plans for
the day, his intention to ask Sarah to
marry him. It all seemed so long ago,
now, and so innocent. Naive, even.
The moment had passed he knew
that much. Should he try to resur-
rect it now? Would a proposal now
be forever linked to a day of confu-
sion, a dead body, and probably even
murder?
Before he could make a decision, the
doorbell rang. Joe and Sarah looked
at each other questioningly. Sarah
shrugged, so Joe said "I'll get it" and
got up to answer the door.
When he opened it, he found a young
woman, blond, standing on the door-
step. She was holding a microphone
and behind her was a man holding
what looked like a camera with lights
attached to the top. Behind them, at
the curb, was a white van with the
call letters of a television station on
the side.
"Are you Joe McPherson?" the wom-
an asked.
"Yes," he answered.
"We'd like to ask you a few ques-
tions."
"Just a minute," he said, and closed
the door, turning around to look at
Sarah. "What should I do?"
"Talk to them, I guess," she said, "or
resign ourselves to being hostages in
this house all night."
Joe shrugged, then opened the door
again and stepped out onto the porch.
The moment he stepped out, the man
pointed the camera at him, the lights
came on, and the woman stuck the
microphone in his face.
"We understand you found the body
in Tomlinson Lake Park today," she
said. "Tell us what you know."
"Nothing," Joe said. "I know noth-
ing. I saw what I thought might be
a body, so I called the police. That's
all I know."

This is a work of fiction. The events,
the people and, especially, the victims
are all fictional as well. No similar-
ity to real people or real events is in-
tended. Next week: Chapter 8 begins
as the latest news spreads.

The city will be seeking funding to
seal and stripe parking lots, installa-
tion of new carpeting, a new air con-
ditioning unit, re-roofing the upper
roof section, stucco repairs, exterior
pressure cleaning and painting and
the purchase of a generator.
City Manager Tom Brobeil ex-
plained that the purchase of a gen-
erator is something the city has
wanted for a long time. It will al-
low the senior center to serve as a
resource to the community in the
event of an emergency, such as a
hurricane, which would leave the
city without power for an extended
period of time.
If the city does receive a grant
of this type, there is a 25 percent
match of the total program costs,
which means that for every three
dollars received from the state, the
city would need to contribute one
dollar.

It's Still About the Homes


By Shelly Wilson
In 2006, Cottage Living
Magazine named Historic
Kenwood one of the Nation's
10' best neighborhoods
in which to live, and
earlier this year, HK was
honored yet again: as one
of Neighborhood USA's top
three neighborhoods in the
country. Kenwood's success
story from a neighborhood
overrun with drug dealers
to a place in the national
spotlight is one oft told.
But what many don't know
is that BungalowFest was a
big part of what turned it all
around.
The Historic Kenwood
BungalowFest has become
a juggernaut in the area's
home tour events. Now in
it's 10th year, BungalowFest
is attracting even greater
crowds and, thanks to
the 100% volunteer effort
from the Historic Kenwood
Neighborhood Association,
the neighborhood is one of St.
Petersburg's most desirable..
Residents of Historic
Kenwood offer a lot of
reasons to love where they
live: great people, an involved
Association, proximity to
Downtown, quiet brick
streets and the family-
friendly Seminole Park. But,
by far, one of the biggest
draws to Historic Kenwood is
the architecture.
As one of St. Petersburg's
oldest neighborhoods,
Historic Kenwood boasts
an amazing variety of home
styles. From the Colonial
and Mediterranean Revivals
to the Cottage Style, Ranch
and Minimal Traditional,
Historic Kenwood is a feast
for home architecture-lovers.
And of course, no one style is
more closely associated with
the neighborhood than the
Bungalow.
Last weekend, Historic
Kenwood's BungalowFest
opened the neighborhood up
to folks from all over the Bay
area, allowing them a rare
glimpse at what makes many


of these homes so unique. The
Moonlight Tour on Friday,
added to the Feat in 2005,
and the traditional day tour
on Saturday, offered up 15
of the neighborhood's finest
homes. Owners stood proudly
by, answering questions and,
often, detailing extensive
renovation processes, as
tourists traipsed through
their living rooms.
"We wanted to restore and
uphold as much as possible,"
said Jenny Lee, who, along
with her husband Gabriel,
spent months renovating
their Four-Square Bungalow
featured on the tour. Like
many residents, the Lee's
have updated their home
as well, and opted for
environmentally friendly
features such as a reverse-
osmosis water filtration
system and all-native Florida
landscaping. Though Jenny
admitted that renovating an
old home can be a harrowing
task, she found it a labor of
love, a "really fun process."
Many of the homes on the
BungalowFest Tour have
similar stories, and many


owners consider them a "work
in progress." But the majority
of residents echo the Lees'
sentiment that the reward of
owning a little piece of history
far outweighs the challenges.
Tour homeowners inspire
legions of would-be DIYers,
and, if nothing else, show off
a beautiful, loving merger
of St. Petersburg's past and
present.
The success of BungalowFest


is about the success of a
neighborhood. It's about
residents who were not
afraid to kick the crime out
- people who wanted to open
up their porches and meet
the neighbors. But what the
Tour exclaims, to residents
and onlookers alike, is
what really attracts folks to
Historic Kenwood: It's all
about the homes.

P: .. "


Marty Newlon's 1932 Craftsman Bungalow is a fantastic mix of color
and style, but the best feature is the backyard, with its pastel pavers
and meticulously tended vegetation. Among other improvements,
Newlon has renovated the bathroom and kitchen, and added French
doors to her master bedroom which lead, of course, to the tropical
patio.

This whimsical Sears Craftsman-style home was built in 1935 and is owner Debra Wright's pride and joy. A
resident of Historic Kenwood for eight years, Wright says her favorite feature is the home's Florida-friendly
garden, enclosed by a traditional white picket fence.

Proposed Property
Tax Reductions
The Florida League of Cities
Legislative Director Rebecca O'Hara
has outlined the proposed prop-
erty tax reductions voters will get
to decide on when they vote in the
January 29, 2008 election.
Proposed benefits to property own-
ers include:
* Portability for Save Our Homes
* Homestead Exemption changes
from $25,000 to $50,000 (this does
not apply to school district taxation)
* A $25,000 exemption for tangible
personal property
*An assessment cap of 10%, simi-
lar to Save Our Homes for all non-
homesteaded properties.
What does this mean for Gulfport?
Current estimates indicate that if
this amendment passes, doubling the
Homestead Exemption will result in
a $275,075 loss to Gulfport's general
fund. The Pinellas County Property
Appraiser's office has also indicated
that Gulfport will lose an additional
$10,843 from the $25,000 exemption
for tangible personal property.
City Manager Tom Brobeil says
that the City has no means of iden-
tifying how much money the gen-
eral fund will lose with portability of
Save Our Homes, or the 10% assess-
ment cap on non-homesteaded prop-
erties. That, he says, will depend on
Gulfport real estate trends. Brobeil
has started to work on a model to de-
termine what losses to expect under

various scenarios.
"The best guess for losses to the
general.fund, should the referendum
pass, is approximately $500,000,"
Brobeil 'said in his Weekly report
to council. He alded that he will


continue the hiring freeze for all
"code yellow" positions and consult
with council to determine whether
select positions should be eliminated
from next year's budget.

Merchants Take Over
Vendor Permitting
Gulfport's community redevelop-
ment agency passed a resolution on
Tuesday which, among other things,
grants the Gulfport Merchants
Association (GMA) the sole right to
issue permits for vendors wishing to
use the city's right-of-ways.
The resolution adds two new activi-
ties (the Tuesday morning market
and a holiday lighted village) to the
general outdoor sales and displays
permit granted by the city. This al-
lows for businesses to display mer-
chandise on their properties and
establishes a standard operating pro-
cedure for the issuance of vender per-
mits through the Gulfport Merchants
Association for sales on the city's
right-of-ways.
The general permit is effective until
October 1, 2012. It includes only first
Friday, third and fourth Saturdays
and the two new events outlined
above. Large scale or city co-spon-
sored events requiring such items as
street closures or public safety com-
ponents will continue to require city
council approval.


The GMA has agreed to pay all
electrical usage costs from events
and activities outlined in the resolu-
tion. The group also maintains $1
million dollars in liability coverage
with the city named as an additional
insured party.

Guardian ad Litem
Needs Volunteers
The 6th Circuit Guardian ad
Litem office has launched a major
initiative to recruit over 200 new
volunteers to be the voice for close
to a 1,000 children who have been
abused, neglected or abandoned
in Pinellas and Pasco Counties.
As a child's advocate, a Guardian
ad Litem visits the child every
month, becomes familiar with the
child's case and makes recommenda-
tions to the court. The average time
needed is four to six hours a month.
Guardians receive 30 hours of train-
ing and ongoing assistance to help
them make a positive difference
in the lives of children. To volun-
teer and arrange to attend a brief
orientation, call 1-866-341-1425.

Exhibit Explores
The End of Queer
The gay community has made great
strides in becoming more mainstream
and accepted by society. Historically,
groups that have been shunned by
the community cre ate their own sub-
culture that parodies and reshapes
reality into a comfortable safe zone.
As general acceptance. increases, the
need and relevance of these alterna-
tive social structures decreases.
This exhibition takes a look at some
of the elements of gay culture that are
slowly disappearing. Gulfport writ-
ers Ria Alyxander and Tinamarie
Hansen explore the issues through
the written word. Frank Hibrandt
brings back past memories through
the metaphor of ruins in his installa-
tions. Los Angeles writer and artist
Steven Reigns joins forces with St.
Petersburg artist Thaddeus Root to
bring us a cautionary tale told in pho-
tographs.
Exhibit opens Friday, November 9
with a reception from 6-8 p.m. at the
Gulfport Library, 5501 28 Avenue S.
in Gulfport.

POWERFUL PRAYER TO The Holy Spirit.
Holy Spirit, you who solves all problems, you
who lights all roads so I can attain my goal, you
who give me the divine gifts to forgive and for-
get all evil against me and that in all instances
of my life you are with me, I want in this short
prayer to thank you for all things and confirm
once more that I never want to be separated
from you, even in spite of all material illusions. I
wish to be with you in your eternal glory. Thank
you for your mercy toward me and mine.
The person must say this
prayer for 3 consecutive days. After 3 days the
favor requested will be granted, even if it may
appear difficult. This prayer must be published
immediately after the favor is granted, without
mentioning the favor, only your initials should
appear at the bottom. E. T.
