Ted Philips Says Dishonesty
Reason For Leaving Council
By Cathy Salustri
Vice-Mayor Ted Philips says he
will not run for re-election because
", of what he calls lies on the part of
"*f another councilmember.
S"I was undecided about step-
S.' ping down until a councilmeme-
ber openly lied, and I don't want
'.... to work on the same council with
S .,.'. that person," Philips said "You
Council member can quote me on that. I'll take all
Ted Philips three types of lie detector tests. I
can't stand that; that really is the basic reason."
Philips would only say that the councilmember in
question "has a sister-in-law who would like to have
Michele King's seat. She's run against Michele twice."
Councilmember Bob Worthington's sister-in-law, Chris-
tine Brown, has twice run for council. Last month, an
audience member said they saw King pass a note to

O'Maddy's Named
Business of the Month
The Gulfport Chamber of Commerce
is pleased to announce O'Maddy's Bar
and Grille as the November business of
the month. Joe and Maddy Guenther
have been longtime contributors to
the community of Gulfport. From
hosting benefits for local folks in need,
especially abused children, to serving
on city council appointed boards, Joe
and Maddy have given back. In 1989,
Maddy began managing the business
and three years ago they purchased
the adjoining business, the former
Pier House, for expansion. Joe put in
many hours of work to fulfill Maddy's
vision of a comfortable indoor/outdoor
caf6 with fantastic views of Boca Ciega
Bay. Lori Rosso, Chamber President,
stated "It is wonderful to see all the
people enjoying lunch or dinner on the
outside deck on a beautiful day. From
the moment they opened the Grille,
business was booming. We all wish
them well with this expanded endeav-
or and invite patrons from other ar-
eas to give them a try!" Be sure to try
Joe's mom's homemade 'Mama Mia's"
desserts.
O'Maddy's Grille is open seven days
a week serving lunch and dinner.

Phillips, from front page
Philips during a meeting; Brown said
she saw the same thing. Upon later
questioning, Worthington also said
he saw papers passed.
"At first I thought that whole deal
was aimed at me, and I reacted vio-
lently, but then I saw it was aimed
at Michele," Philips said "I wonder if
he's been out in the desert sometime,
like I was, and he saw a mirage. To
me, the truth is everything, not that
the appearance is everything.
"Michele and I disagree on about
90% of the things that come up, but
it's an open-plane disagreement. But
I would trust her with anything. The
accusation directed at her was com-
pletetely unfounded. I think they're
trying to smear Michele King. Even
though I disagree with her, that's
wrong."
Philips says he and his wife may
move closer to their children. Be-
cause he likes to spend time with his
daughter, that factored into his deci-
sion as well as the recent events on
council. But he says that allegations
of impropriety "crystallized" his deci-
sion to step down.


Charlie's


During his almost 20 years on
Council, Philips has supported vari-
ous drainage projects and a police
substation that never quite mate-
rialized on 49th Street. He has also
spoken out in favor of the dog park
and the mooring field. When he steps
down next year, either Judy Ryerson
or Rick Gilbert will have won his spot
on Council.
"I've known Judy Ryerson for a long,
long time. We've been good friends,"
Philips said, adding that he didn't
think she would have run had he de-
cided to run.
"I enjoyed the council and I'm going
to miss it badly. I can't work and pre-
tend to be friendly on Council with
somebody who has wrongly accused
me," Philips said "I just can't."

77th Annual Fish Broil at Gulf Beaches
Elementary Does Not Disappoint
By Maureen Noonan

Many long time residents of

remember their elementary
school days as a student of Gulf I .,,. -.
Beaches. Some of you may even .,.
remember your first, fifth or
10th Annual Fish-Broil. Just -
maybe? .
This year's 77th Annual
Fish Broil was held Saturday, '
November 3, and the weather '4s *
could have not been more
perfect.
As a first-timer to the broil,
I didn't know what to expect.
But, I had the best "old Florida" ,..
dish I can remember: the most '
perfectly smoked mullet I've ..
ever had. I have lived in the The volunteers at Gulf Beaches Elementary School's
beach-area for over 35 years 77th Annual Fish Broil made it look so easy,
and I know how hard that can
be to find.
"We've been fishing all week for this event to get the fish, shrimp, and squid,"
said a representative from Gulf to Bait and Tackle who donated the seafood for
the event.
In case you missed it this year, this is an event you'll want to check out next time
for a taste of "old Florida cooking."

It seems like we are heading backward as a society
not forward when we have record breaking fiscal
years of profit for the OIL companies yet we the
public suffer at the gas pump. It is not only record
gas prices, many items have increased at an
ALARMING RATE; items such as PROPERTY TAXES,
HOMEOWNER'S INSURANCE, AUTO INSURANCE,
HEALTH CARE, PRESCRIPTION DRUGS and espe-
cially FOOD COSTS. These are items that people
use regularly but are not used to factor inflation.
Government statistics would have us believing
inflation is barely existent! Bought food or gasoline
lately? AND DON'T FORGET INCREASING FEES AT
LOCAL BANKS. It's amazing, here we go again! Pay
attention over the next few months as you will
witness another series of increasing fees at local
banks in our area.
IT'S TIME TO HOLD ON AND GET BACK TO THE
BASICS.

1. The only way to accumulate wealth is to live
within your means, and possibly cut back due to
huge increases in the cost of living.
2. Basic financial planning has become more
sophisticated and yet people have to invest conser-
vative due to low bank interest rates while banks
and oil companies make record profits.
3. I recommend that retirees invest prudently and
have a comfort level of how their money will be
working for them with the investments they now
have.
4. With this chaos, we as a society have become
desensitized and have forgotten to realize history
repeats itself.
5. I recommend finding a qualified Financial
Advisor who will have your best interests at heart.

At Conley Financial Services, we believe an
educated client is the best client, so my clients have
a comfort level knowing their money is working as
hard for them as they did for it.

Working with a Financial Advisor should be
strongly considered. At Conley Financial Services
we can recommend an accountant for tax advice as
well as an attorney for legal advice.

Gulfport Whys
Have you got a question?
E-mail your request to News@theGabber.com
By Cathy Salustri
Q What, exactly, are the Sunshine Laws? Who do they apply to and what
do they mean? Does everything an elected official does fall under their
jurisdiction?
A No, not everything an elected official does falls under the auspices of
Government in the Sunshine (also called Sunshine Laws). For example,
if MIVchele King has a crab omelet for breakfast, we most certainly do
NOT have the right to know. Now, if she eats it with Mayor Mike Yakes and,
while eating they talk about the best way to get council to vote to allow five story
condominiums along Shore Boulevard, well, then, we, as voters, have a legal
right to know about it.
The Sunshine laws are actually pretty simple, really. While we could on and
on and on and...well, you get the idea... about "rights of access," we're going to
assume that most of you do not care to make a living off government legalities
and distill it all down to what it means to you, a Gulfportian. Sunshine law,
according to MyFloridaLegal.com, the Florida Attorney General's web site,
simply means three things:
1. The public has to know about meetings of boards or commissions,
2. The public should be allowed at these meetings, and
3. Someone has to take minutes at those meetings.
If you're wondering where an alleged note between two council members falls
into those laws, you're not alone. Seems that if two officials passed a note, that
note would be public record if it dealt with an issue they were going to vote
about in a government meeting. But (and this is a big but) as far as we can tell,
actually passing the note does NOT violate any Sunshine laws. Elected officials
still retain their rights as Americans -- meaning that they can talk to each other.
But if they're chatting, e-mailing, or IM'ing each other about something they will
later vote on, we, the voters, have a legal right to records of those conversations.
So passing a note (and we're not saying it happened, but if it did) isn't a violation.
Refusing to give it up to the public -- by hiding it, burning it, or swallowing it,
whatever -- is.
See, here's where the line gets clouded: perception. So many government
agencies worry so much about what people will think and the potential scandal
in the papers that they liberally apply those laws. That means that they might
advertise a picnic on the beach if more than one elected official might attend. They
do that so we, the voters, maintain the perception that if something important
happens, they're not hiding it from us. They do not -- and this is important -- do
it because they have to. They just want us, the voters, to know that they're not
doing anything funny. The ONLY time NOT advertising something like that
becomes a Sunshine law violation is when they actually discuss issues before
them that they will vote on at some later time.
Simple, isn't it?

Property Tax,
from front page

A $25,000 exemption for tangible
personal property
An assessment cap of 10%, similar
to Save Our Homes for all non-
homesteaded properties.

What does this mean for
Gulfport?
Current estimates indicate this 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.
See Property Tax page 21
City manager Tom Brobeil says that
the City has no means of identifying
how much money the general fund
will lose with portability of Save Our
Homes, or the 10% assessment cap
on non-homesteaded properties; that
will depend on Gulfport real estate
trends. Brobeil has started to work
on a model to determine 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 added 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.


DAR Chapter Honors Its Own WWII Veterans

Pictured (L-R): Boca Ciega DAR members Fanny Taylor, Frances Stavrbs (in her World
War II uniform) and Jari Magovero
Three World War II women veterans were honored at the November 3rd
meeting of the Boca Ciega Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution.
Mary Jane (Jari) Whitesell Magovero, Frances Shaw Stavros and Fanny
Hackworth Taylor, all active members of the Chapter, told the stories of their
decision to join the military and the work they did to aid the United States
during war time.
Both Mrs. Magovero and Mrs. Stavros served in the Navy. Mrs. Magovero
spent much of the war at the Bethesda Naval Hospital, Maryland, while
Mrs. Stavros was assigned to Naval Air Station, Jacksonville. Members were
delighted to see Mrs. Stavros in her sixty year old WAVE uniform. Mrs. Taylor
was a Nurse Cadet serving in Nashville, Tennessee. She was one of the first to
see the affects of the atomic testing in New Mexico as she cared for scientists
from Oak Ridge. "It was so secret that the patients were given letters instead
of names in the hospital," she reported. She also brought her last ration book
and younger chapter members saw the coupons for meat, eggs, cheese and
butter.

You & THE

LAW

How to Make Sure
Decisions will be Made in
Your Best Interest
In making decisions about potential
sources of funding for health care, you
should consider certain "protective
services." These become important
if you ever become unable to handle
your own affairs, due to physical or
mental incapacity. Unless proper le-
gal action is taken in advance, your
family may be unable to act on your

behalf should the need arise.
Problems With Joint Ownership
Joint ownership is often used to give
legal authority to another person. For
example, you might simply add your
daughter's name to your account,
thinking you've solved various estate
and financial planning problems,
such as avoiding probate or ensuring
you will be taken care of.
But joint ownership may not solve
some problems, and could even cre-
ate others. First, the joint owner may
be able to withdraw 100% of the as-
sets held in joint name. Second, both
joint owners' signatures are usually
required anyway to sell or liquidate
assets. In addition, your assets may
become subject to claims by your chil-
dren's creditors.


Gabber November 15 November 21, 2007


Revocable Living Trusts
One strategy you should consider is
establishing revocable living trust,
which would hold title to your assets.
Such a trust not only offers estate
planning advantages, such as avoid-
ing probate, but also ensures that a
trustee would handle your financial
affairs in the event of your incapac-
ity.
But your financial situation is not
the only thing to consider in the event
of incapacity. You may need someone
else to step in and make personal de-
cisions regarding your health care or
the maintenance of property you own.
In addition, a trust may not be ap-
propriate, depending on the amount
of assets you own.
Since joint ownership is obviously
not the ideal solution and .trust may
not be for everyone, are there other
ways to plan for the possibility of
your incapacity? Generally, there are
three other ways you can give legal
authority to another person:
Guardianship, Conservatorship,
Durable Power of Attorney.
Of these three, the most effective is
a durable power of attorney. In our
next article, we will take a look at
how these 'legal transfers of control
and decision-making work and which
method would be best for your situ-
ation.

Joanie Clarkin -A reverse mortgage specialist on your side.
By Shelly Wilson ,A . . 1, x


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


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


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


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

This N' That in South
Pasadena
By Sibylle Stajich
City Clean Up
By 8:30 a.m. on Saturday,
November 3 most 'of the workers
were assembled in Hibiscus Hall
and en joyed orange juice, coffee
and donuts, the latter donated by
Dunkin Donuts. Then, everybody
having signed up in which area
they wished to work, got gloves, a
trash bag and pick-up sticks and
went out into the sunny but cool
morning to their duties. After about
three hours everyone returned and
enjoyed the lunch donated by Palms
of Pasadena Hospital consisting of
hot dogs, chips, sodas and cookies
and shared their experiences.
About 20 bags were collected and
some of the "trophies" were shells,
a baby horseshoe crab, an empty
wallet, bicycle pedal and undies
quite a collection! The busy
workers were Alma and Fred Held,
Xavier Velez, Tony DeMars, Agnes
Stebelton, Diane Sheldon, Lena
Larson, Dolores Quillman, Judy
Crowley, Elaine Crowley, Marylou
Gustin, Clayton Petersons, Howard
DeLong, Bobbie Bernstein, Mary
Eidel, Dick and Edith Holmes,
Sibylle Stajich, Linda Ford, Don
Gregory, Emily Broida, Al Leff,
Bruce Howry, Bob Daugherty,
Marge and Frank Marallo. One of
the, volunteers made the remark
that more young people should join
in such an'effort and could emulate
Emily Broida (11) and Clayton
Petersons (10) who have worked,
with us for over two years and set
an example for everybody.
At The Fountains
On Thursday, November 15 at
2 p.m. will be a Brain & Health

Come Blow Your Horn: 100th Players Production


By Cathy Salustri

If reincarnation exists and I had no
choice to come back as a playwright, I'd
want to come back as Neil Simon. I cut
my teeth on reruns of The Odd Couple;
I laughed hysterically the first (and ev-
ery other time) I read Rumors, and I
rejoiced when I saw Come Blow Your
Horn on the lineup for the Gulfport
Community Players' 2007 season.
I have learned to go see shows with
little or no expectations- sad, I know-
so when the curtain parted and I first
saw the set for this show I had no' de-
fenses. Simply put, it floored me. The
Players have outdone themselves with
the set, billed only on their web site as
"the spirit of a black and white TV sit-
com."
Although the Players use largely
black, white, and shades of gray in the
set design and dressing, they somehow
make it seem colorful. The combina-
tion of the lighting (courtesy of Laura
Ross) and the set design (Ed Stevens)
gave this community theatre produc-
tion a professional feel. I hate to read
this line in other reviews, but I really
mean it: this set is among the finest
I have seen in a Players' production.
It also rivals those seen at other local
community theatre productions.
Eileen Navarro's costumes, also
black and white, compliment the set.
They worked beautifully- when you go
see the show you'll see exactly what I
mean once the show moves to the sec-
ond act.
Not everything worked perfectly,
though.With a polished looking set and
costumes, props, and sound all work-
ing as they should, it made any slight
error more obvious as well as easier to
forgive. For example, the lighting left
shadows around most of the actors'
eyes, but everywhere else it played
through the set so beautifully that
you start to think, "Oh, well, they're
just eyes... you really don't need to see
them."
Likewise the acting. You get about
what you expect at a community the-
atre show, meaning that some of the
performers have more talent then the
others, but on the whole the result is
anything but unpleasant. Because the
show made me laugh, because Stevens


wowed me with his set (he also direct-
ed), and because the show represents a
great effort on the part of the Players',
I find myself unwilling to criticize any
of the actors.
A few actors stood out so much that
they deserve mentioning. Brick (not
her real name, but that's what she
goes by) took the stage as Mother, and
the minute she steps onstage you can
feel the mood change. By now she's
such a rooted institution on the Hick-
man stage that she doesn't have to do
anything but stand there and wait for
people to laugh; it's like some Pavlov-
ian response where you see Brick and
laugh hysterically. I pity the director
who ever tries to cast her in a drama.
Keith Surplus, who plays Buddy,
also stands out. As the nerdy younger
brother he shines, down to his slight
lisp and slouch. As you watch him your
mind instantly goes to the computer
guy in your Algebra class, the one with
a pocket protector and taped together
glasses. It doesn't matter that Surplus
doesn't have a pocket protector in this
role. He just somehow epitomizes the
lonely geek loser perfectly.
Come Blow Your Horn marks the
Players' 100th production, and after
choosing 100 different shows, I like
that the Players selected a classic to
celebrate their 100th. They certainly
have. had great success with edgier
shows, and once you get good at shows
like that it can be hard to go back to


the tried and true favorites. This show
has a nice quality to it, a sort of home-
town feel to the production that settles
in around you like something familiar
and comfortable. Everyone did a good
job on the show- actors, tech, and de-
sign staff- so they've given you a show
that makes you laugh, rich production
values almost aside. Neil Simon plays
will never change the world, but some-
times it isn't about changing the world.
Sometimes it's just about entertaining
people for a couple of hours. Sometimes
it's just about laughing.
These guys get that.

Come Blow Your Horn runs through
this weekend at the Catherine Hickman
Theatre. The curtain rises at 8p.m. to-
night, Friday, and Saturday and the
Players have a matinee at 2 p.m. on
Sunday, but then the show will close,
so if you want to see it you need to do so
this weekend. Call (727) 322-0316 for
tickets. You can also buy tickets at Ei-
leen's Resale on Gulfport Boulevard or
at the Gulfport Chamber of Commerce
on 58th Street South.

Cathy Salustri has worked as a stage
manager and sound designer in Tam-
pa Bay. You can contact her at Cath-
ySalustri@TheGabber.com

Do you have a play or art show you
want us to review? Send the informa-
tion to News@TheGabber.com at least

Treasure Jscan


By Mary Marsh
)viders" Santa's Coming
That's right. Just in time for the
holiday season members of the
Treasure Island Art Guild have
another show at the Community
Center, ongoing until January 3.
Exhibitors for this show are George
Avery, Raymond Curtin, Rita Gould,
Claire Paultre and Mirella Cimato.
The holidays bring out the child
in all of us, so the bright-colored
whimsies of George Avery's oils
stir our imaginations and tickle
our fancies. "Moonlight Madness",
: (IThli[s "Elsie's Garden", "Rush Hour IV" and
"A Tranquil Moment" all demonstrate
...for I- ir George's delightful brand of humor.
s Plaza The viewer will see why he says "My
-i e. S.:,. pictures enchant me and make me
.3 -0- happy".
Newcomer Mirella Cimato was
)844 born and raised in Rome, Italy with
extensive art training there and in
the States. Versatile in her choice
of media, she brings us a serene oil,
"Boca Ciega Sunrise"; an ,acrylic,
- TERMITES "Iridescent"; and an abstract "Sun
Dance" in mixed media. Lastly, in
watercolor Mirella treats us to a sun
drenched lady wearing a hat piled
high with colorful fruit.
Raymond Curtin, a New Jersey
W native, has lived in Florida since 1994.
His acrylics seem quite realistic, but
-Do-It all have some delightfully unexpected
details from his imagination. One
)DUCTS entry is a bird's eye view of a large
green billiard table with all the balls
WNER in play'. A closer look shows tiny
figures in charge of each ball: Ray's
title, "Now I Know Why I Missed
gi That Ball".
Call the Recreation Center at
"- hours so you can enjoy some early
Christmas shopping at The Center
V D.T located on Park and 106 Avenue.

E mail can be handy. It's quick
Sand relatively painless and I
use it a lot. For instance, it's
my primary method of communicating
with my sister.
But it can also be a pain. If you do
anything at all on the internet buy
something, join something, send an
inquiry then you are forever on that
organization's E-mail list. My in-box
fills up every, day with E-mails from
people I don't especially want to hear
from offering me things I don't want.
For instance, I joined a Playbill club
last year to get discount tickets to
Broadway shows. We were planning
a trip to New York. Now I get offers
every day that are of little use to
someone living in Florida.
Another annoyance: friends and
acquaintances who forward E-mails
to everyone they know, usually
containing humor or advice or calls to
action or political opinion or some other
tidbit that the sender finds important
or worthwhile. More often than not, I
delete them without reading them.
But I got one last week that I thought
was funny and an interesting comment
on how we deal with government
agencies at all levels. So, forgive me,
I'm passing it on in this column.
It consists of two letters, real letters
I think, between a government official
and a private citizen. I've removed the
names and all references to location,
because I prefer to think of the place as
Anywhere, USA and the letter writers
as Everyman/men. The letters have
been shortened to fit in this space, but
otherwise appear as written.

"Dear Landowner:
"It has come to the attention of the
Department of Environmental Quality
that there has beenrecent unauthorized
activity on the above-referenced parcel
of property. You have been certified as
the legal landowner and/or contractor
who did the following unauthorized
activity: construction and maintenance

outlet stream of Spring Pond.
"A permit must be issued prior to the
start of this type of activity. A review
of the files shows that no permits have
been issued. Therefore, the Department
has determined that this activity is in
violation of the Natural Resource and
Environmental Protection Act.
"The Department has been informed
that one or both of the dams partially
failed during a recent rain event,
causing debris and flooding at
downstream locations. We find that
dams of this nature are inherently
hazardous and cannot be permitted.
The Department therefore orders you
to cease and desist all activities at this
location and to restore the stream to
a free-flow condition by removing all
wood and brush forming the dams. All
work must be completed by (date).
"Please notify this office when the
restoration has been completed so
that a follow-up site inspection may
be scheduled by our staff. Failure to
comply with this request or any further
unauthorized activity on the site may
result in this case being referred for
elevated enforcement action.
"We anticipate and would appreciate
your full cooperation in this matter.
Please feel free to call me at this office
if you have any questions."

"Dear Bureaucrat:.
"Your certified letter has been handed
to me to respond to. I am the legal
landholder but not' the contractor at
Spring Pond.
"A couple of beavers are in the
(unauthorized) process of constructing
and maintaining two wood "'debris"
dams across the outlet stream of my
Spring Pond. While I did not pay for,
authorize, nor supervise their dam
project, I think they would be highly
offended that you call their skillful
use of nature's building materials
"debris."
"I would like to challenge your
department to attempt to emulate
their dam project any time and/or


any place you choose. 1tlibve I can
safely state there is no way you could
ever match their dam skills, their dam
resourcefulness, their dafa ingenuity,
their dam persistence, their dam
determination and/or their dam work
ethic.
"As to your request, I do not think the
beavers are aware that they must first
acquire a dam permit prior to the start
of this type of dam activity.
"My first dam question to you is: Are
you trying to discrimuirate against
my Spring Pond beavers, or do you
require all beavers., Wighut this
state to conform to quest?
If you are not discri -against
these particular beavers, f request,
through the Freedom, of..Information
Act, complete ceopes .' other
applicable beaver darim permits that
have been issued.
"I have several concerns. My first
concern is, aren't the beavers entitled to
legal representation? The Spring Pond
beavers are financially, destitute and
unable to pay for said representation,
so the state will have;to. provide
them with a dam la-wer. Also, the
Department's dam coricrlthat either
one or both of the dams failed during a
recent rain event, causing flooding, is
proof that this is a natural occurrence,
which the Department :is required
to protect. In other woed4 we should
leave the Spring -PiW4 s alone
rather than harae 0bhem
dam names. ''
"In my humble opinion, the Spring
Pond beavers have a right to build
their unauthorized dams as long as
the sky is blue, the grass in green and
water flows downstream. -They have
more dam rights than Id' to live and
enjoy Spring Pond. If the Department

"So, as far as the beaver-land I are
concerned, this dam eeWs -can be
referred for 'elevated enforcement
action' right now. Why wait until
(date)? The Spring Pond beavers may
be under the dam ice then, and there
will be no way for you or your dam
staff to contact/harass them.
"Being unable to comply with your
dam request, and being unable to
contact you on your dam answering
machine, I am sending this response
to your dam office.
"Thank you."

Garage Sale-ing The Day Away
By Cathy Salustri

Walking through Gulfport remains one of the niceset
ways to see the city. So when the city held its citywide
yard sale I jumped at the chance to cover the event. Of
course, at The Gabber we would never dream of send-
ing a reporter in to take a few pictures and scoot out
again. In keeping with tradition (two times makes a tra-
dition at The Gabber), the reporters came up with a list
of things we wanted, and I, armed with the extravagant
sum of $25, headed out on foot to find those things we all
so desperately needed.
While most of the reporters kept their list to a mini-
mum, Greg Stemm had prepared a typed and double
spaced list with his requests, including such items as
any celebrity talking doll (in the box), washable throw
rugs, hanging beads for doorways or windows, and a toy
washing machine (don't ask; lord knows I didn't.) Shelly
Wilson asked for two things only: art, not "creepy art"
(her words and a not-so-subtle dig at the art I found her
last go-round) and a dashboard hula girl. Photographer
Tom Gibson wanted a spice rack. And as for myself? I
wanted lawn furniture and a fishing pole.
Saturday dawned cold, but I gulped coffee and Blravely
headed out. By 8 a.m. most people had set up and I had
a goodly bit of luck finding what I needed. This year the
city provided maps but I chose instead to strike out on
my own, parking on 27th Avenue South and wandering
around the Art District.
Almost instantly I saw a framed print for Shelly, but
remembering her warning that she didn't want anything
creepy, I hesitated. Sure, it looked nice to me- a great
beach scene with lots of tropical foliage and bright colors,
but last year I got her a photograph I thought evoked
peace and tranquility and she called it creepy. I pushed
on, ignoring my shopping companion's cries of "What
are you doing? There's a bunch of art right here!"
In between checking out sales I had a chance to look
around, something I haven't had a chance to do a lot of
lately. And I remembered something: Gulfport's pretty.
Too often I rush around trying to get this picture or
that and I don't stop to really look around or have the
time to wander too 'far off Beach Boulevard. Walking
up and down the streets, ever searching for Greg's
shower curtain rod (I'm telling you, this guy put a LOT
of thought into his list), I had a chance to really see
the city. Think of it as a free tour of homes, minus the
pink flamingos. Also, despite my preconceived notions
of garage sales having nothing but junk, I found quite a
bit more than I expected.
Speaking of the idea that garage sales just have junk...
You know that saying "One man's trash is another man's
treasure"? If you, like me, had heard it and thought "yeah,
well, sometimes one man's trash is another man's trash,
too," you need to rethink our city garage sale. I found
several things not on my list that I wanted (I'll put 'em
on next year's list), and I wish now I had allotted more
than a few hours to see more of the sales. Undeniably,
Greg's preparedness ensured he would make out the
best: I found him an understated Christmas salt and
pepper shaker set (50 cents), a vacuum cleaner (three
dollars, and it broke once he used it, but he loved it so


Phil Allen, on vacation from Canada, stopped by the Gulfport Mu-
seum yard to negotiate with Lucy Malizia for a meat cleaver and
a few other items. Although he didn't walk away with any of them,
The Gabber found a almost-new stuffed penguin for reporter Greg
Stemm. Glad to help with your gift shopping, Greg!

much he went out and bought a brand new one just
like it- except, presumably, the new one vacuums more
than two tiles before it stops), and a large pot for plants.
Tom got a deal: not only did he get a wicker-ish spice
rack, it came, for the bargain price of five dollars, with a
matching cabinet.
In retrospect, I should have started at the Recreation
Center. People had set up tables there and CERT sold
food and drinks to keep all us garage sales strong and
ready to shop more. By the time I made my way down
there,
though, I'd spent most of the money and had enough to
make everyone happy Monday morning.
Oh, and Shelly? After wandering around, looking for
something to please her, I realized that the only way I
could possibly know whether or not she'd like the art I
bought was if it came with a note from her on it, reading
plainly "Cathy- This one! -Shelly", so I opted to get
something I'd want in my house. That way, I reasoned,
when she hated it, I could put it up in my house. That's
me, selfless to the end. I went with the first piece of art
I saw- the tropical print for a few bucks.
As luck would have it, she loved it. So I guess next
year, in addition to a fishing pole, garlic press, and lawn
furniture, I have to add "tropical framed print that
reminds me of Islamorada" to my list.
You can e-mail Cathy Salustri at CathySalustri@
TheGabber.com. She's also still looking for a fishing
pole.

have we never seen her? Why don't you
bring her in sometime so we can meet
her?"
For the first time this morning,
Burnard seemed to be at a loss for
words. "I'll do that," he said, almost
to himself, as he began to study the
picture frame collection more closely.
That was the end of the conversation,
because Lydia Fletcher entered the
store a half hour late for work, which
meant that, for her, she was on time.
"Good morning," she said to Jeremy,
without offering her usual apologies
or excuses for being late, then went
directly to the sales counter and stored
her purse underneath.
Even Lydia had been acting differently,
lately, since the murders had begun
to pile up. Jeremy could understand,
though, in her case. She was, after
all, a woman and an attractive one,
if older than all of the victims, so far.
Women had good reason to be on edge.
Lydia did not speak to Burnard,
another noticeable change in her
demeanor. And Burnard did not speak
to her, a change that Jeremy had
begun noticing soon after Lydia had
received the diamond bracelet from
George Ardis and bragged about it
endlessly.
Today, Jeremy only felt disapproval
radiating from Burnard's corner of the
store.

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 8 continues as we
find out about the latest victim.

The Performance is the Thing


When I was seven years old,
I made my theatrical debut
as Thomas Jefferson in Bear
Creek Elementary School's version
of the.. signing of the Declaration of
Independence. It was heavy stuff; I
wore a cotton ball wig and delivered
my one line with all of the gravity
fitting a venerable founding father:
"We hold these truths to be self-
evident..."
Of course, I had no idea what I was
saying. But, my parents and maybe
even a few other parents thought I
was brilliant. I have the pictures to
prove it.
Clearly the public cannot get
enough of me, as I have been called,
once again, to try my hand at the
craft of acting. Required in not one,
but two of my current courses, is a
public performance, upon which my
grades tentatively rest. Of course,
by "public," I mean a handful of
classmates, and by "performance," I
mean squeaking out a few memorized
lines, but the bile rises in my throat
even as I think about it.
I do not consider myself a shy person
but, like all "normal" people, I have
a healthy fear of public speaking.
On a scale of one to ten (one being
an agoraphobe, ten being a circus
clown), I am probably somewhere
around a four. I have no problem
sharing my thoughts (clearly), but
performance be it in a job interview
or the recitation of poetry makes
my face feel funny and sweat run
down my back.
So, good little nerd that I am, I have
been doing my homework. Perhaps,
if I can prepare myself enough, if I
can really "get into" my roles, then
the fear will go away. I have been
reading about the fine "art" that
is acting; I have been digging into
my characters' motivations. And,
uncultured though I may be, I have
even gone to the theater.
Last Saturday, I attended the
Studio@620's production of Hamlet:
The Unforgettable Fire. Admittedly,
my reason for attending had less to
do with "preparation," and more to


do with the fact that there were extra
credit points involved, but never has
homework been less of a chore.
The Studio@620 is a "creative home
for the visual and performing arts"
with an eye for integrating the various
disciplines of the artistic community.
The Studio is a fantastic addition to
the blossoming culture of downtown:
They put on (largely) contemporary
plays, host poetry readings, screen
films and provide a space for public
forums and events, among other
things. Oh, and at many events,
they serve a considerable selection of
adult beverages and gnoshing items
for a small donation...but I digress.
Hamlet: The Unforgettable Fire
was directed by Bob Devin Jones,
one of The Studio's founders and
something of a giant in the arts/
theater community. However, set
to the music of U2, with a modern
set and costuming, this was not
your typical Hamlet. Now, with my
limited study of Shakespeare, and
my nonexistent knowledge of theater,
I'm not going to embarrass myself by
trying to critique the play. I usually,
and quite stupidly, figure that a play
is good if the price of the ticket forces
me to break out a credit card. What
really interested me, however, was
how these performers do what they
do.


GRAND


If you think Shakespeare is tough to
read, try "being" Hamlet for a group
of 50 or more strangers. Trying to
remember those endless lines must
be daunting enough, but, unlike
my third grade performance, these
actors have got to actually know
what they mean. My Modern Drama
professor, Dr. Jon Conlon (Polonius
in 620's production), says that some
Shakespearean performers do not
have a clue what they're saying.
And, while this is sad, it was clearly
not the case Saturday night. These
actors were so compelling that even I
sometimes knew what was going on.
Once, when I asked my grandmother
why she loved tennis so much, she
explained that she didn't love it until
she tried to play it. A few weeks of
lessons soon taught my grandmother
what the professionals already know:
Tennis is hard
And so, actors, as I try to calm my
pre-performance jitters in the coming
weeks, I take my hat off to you. Acting
is hard. Sucking up the stage fright,
remembering your lines and then...
making us believe? It's beyond me.
It might just be the toughest job in
the world.

Exhibit Explores
The End of Queer
By Frank Hibrandt
The gay community has made great
strides in becoming more mainstream
and accepted by society. Historically,
groups that have been shunned by
the community create 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.
Panel discussion will be at the
Gulfport Library, 5501 28 Avenue S.
in Gulfport on Wednesday, November
28 from 6-8 p.m.

You are Invited to Attend!
The Gulfport Crime Awareness & Prevention Meetings are held the second
Monday of each month at 7 p.m. at the Senior Center, 5501 28 Avenue So. The
neit meeting will be held on December 10.
In the meantime Gulfport CAP (Crime Awareness & Prevention) would like
to share some information from the National Crime Prevention Council. This
week's information is on neighborhood safety.
Unfortunately, no neighborhood is completely immune to crime. However,
there are steps you can take to help keep your family and your neighborhood
safe.
Know where your children are. Have your children tell you or ask
permission before leaving the house and give them a time to check in or be
home. When possible, have them leave a phone number of where they will be.
Help children learn important phone numbers. Have your children
practice reciting their home phone number and address and your work and
cell phone numbers.
Set limits on where your children can go in your neighborhood. Do you
want them crossing busy roads? Playing in alleys or abandoned buildings? Are
there certain homes in your neighborhood that you don't want your children
to go to?
Get to know your children's friends. Meet their parents before letting
your children go to their home and keep a list of their phone numbers. If you
can't meet their parents, call and talk to them. Ask what your children might
do at their house and if they will be supervised.
Choose a safe house in your neighborhood. Pick a neighbor's house
where your children can go if they need help. Point out other places they can
go for help, like stores, libraries and police stations.
Teach children to settle arguments with words, not fists. Role-play talking
out problems, walking away from fist fights, and what to do when confronted
with bullies. Remind them that taunting and teasing can hurt friends and
make enemies.
Work together with your neighbors. Watch out for suspicious and unusual
behavior in your neighborhood. Get to know your neighbors and their children
so you can look out for one another.
We hope to see you at an upcoming meeting! For more information on Gulfport
CAP, contact Ernie Stone or Jeri Reed.

_IIIAnl moved to Flor-
W H A T.. ida Jul, 1. 119?0.
which means that my family got our
first out-of-state visitor July 2. 1980.
When our many relatives invaded-
er, visited- my parents and I went
with them to all the requisite tour-
ist haunts- we'd drink fresh orange
juice at Orange Blossom G ro es, ride
a glass bottom boat at Silver Springs.,
and, finally, the piece de resistance:
the Weeki Wachee Springs mer-
maids. In addition
to bird shows, riv- W
er cruises, and gift
shops, we'd rush -
to the underwater
theatre and watch '
real mermaids. I
would peer through l
the thick glass at i
them, transfixed as
they swished their
tails, somersaulted, *
and dove to depths
I'd never imagined.

A S an adult, the mermaids still
A S'l captivate me. When we vis-
ited last month I found that 27 years
after I first saw the mermaids swim,
I still wiggle in my seat, impatient for
the bubble curtain to signal the next
show. Weeki Wachee still has several
different mermaid shows as well as
an animal show (out of the water),
and the classic river cruise.

The park opens
WH ENat 10 a.m. and
closes at 3 p.m. Thursday Sunday.

WiT .ITJ ] At the in-
W HEJL EJ tersection of
State Road 50 and US Highway 19

and they may not allow the park to

Florida like it used to be, you can still
see it here.

T Part: The retired
B I mermaid shows.
These women, whose ages run into
their 70s, return to the park to swim
simply because they love performing
as mermaids. They don't get paid. No
disrepect intended to the current crop
of aquatic lovelies, but these mer-
maids outshine anything new at the
springs. When I first saw them be-
fore they performed, I winced, emba-
rassed on their behalf. To put it deli-
cately, these women look nothing like
the tiny little mermaids that perform
the regular shows. After seeing them

Spare Room Mini Storage: A Family Business


By Cathy Salustri

W ho would have thought
storage could be so much
fun? For Gene and Sher-
ry Pringle, the storage business I
means more time together as a
family and a chance to invite their
customers to be a part of their fam-
ily, too. Gene and Sherry opened
Spare Room Mini Storage in 1997,
and since then they have thor-
oughly enjoyed a hands-on owner
and operator experience.. What
makes the business so much fun?
They say their customers do.

"Our customers are so interesting
and bring many diverse situations
and points of view with them,"
Sherry enthuses. The Pringles,
who have lived in south Saint Pe-
tersburg for the past 12 years, say
they have learned a lot about the
neighborhood and the community
from their customers. And they like
what they have learned. According
to Sherry, a small-town girl from
Minnesota, south Saint Pete's small-
town feel makes her feel like a part
of her community.

"People know one another, help one
another, and are friendly to one an-
other," she says, adding that she sees
examples of this every day at her
storage facility and she appreciates
the goodness and kindness people
share with one another.

Gene and Sherry founded the busi-
ness and work the business. They
work side by side with Justin Cole,
Sherry's nephew, who works as their
manager. Gus Goncalves and Dave
Frost are long-time staff who work
part-time.

Their goal is to provide excellent cus-
tomer service and they all work hard
to provide precisely the storage unit
their customer needs....no more, no
less. They pride themselves in going
the extra mile to help their custom-
ers. Sherry says one of the main cri-
teria for working here "is that you've
got to have a good heart."


ustin Cole and Sherry Pringle pride themselves on running a family business that
akes care of its customers like an extended family.


That's evident in the way they treat
their customers. Because Spare
Room's storage space is all inside
one building, they check everyone in
to their storage units. If they notice
that someone's been back in their
storage area for a while, or if they
hear boxes fall, they go back and
check on their customers.

When they're not there, they keep
Spare Room safe with alarms and
other protective, measures. They're
proud to say that in the ten years
they've been open, they haven't had a
single incidence of theft. So not only
are you safe going into your storage
unit, you can rest easy that whatev-
er you're storing at Spare Room will
stay safe as well.

Spare Room offers many different
sizes and all their units are air con-
ditioned.

Over 55% of their business comes
from repeat customers and referrals
from satisfied customers. Customers
tell them constantly they're pleased
that when people call, they always
get a real person- no voice mail, no
prompts, no codes, no waiting.

Their customers use storage for a
variety of reasons: some are mov-
ing; some are selling their home and
Paid Advertisement-


need to "declutter;" some store their
Christmas decorations, suitcases,
winter/summer clothes; some are
remodeling their home and need to
clear out that area; some are down-
sizing from a bigger to a smaller
home, condo, or apartment; some
use it for record storage. Whatever
the reason, Spare Room will help
to make it a pleasant, easy process.
They are ready, willing, and able to
help.


Spare Room has two
locations at Maximo Plaza:
4311 34th Street South
4401 34" Street South
