A Game for Royalty and the Rest of Us
By Shelly Wilson
"You know, Queen Elizabeth does this," says
Audrey Shane, member of the St. Petersburg ,
Lawn Bowling Club. "She's done it for years. 4
She's very good."
Apart from its royal favor, lawn bowling is -
a tradition that extends back to the days of
the Roman Empire, and was invented by sol- a
diers who used round rocks to hit their marks.
Today, the game is more sophisticated, with
uniform equipment and rules, but it is still
around and, according to the members of the
St. Petersburg Club, the oldest formally orga- June Smith (1), Audrey Shane and Bob Shane look on

Although most people who get tickets for speeding hate to
see an officer lurking around the bend on Gulfport Boulevard,
the people who live near this intersection welcome such speed
traps. Last Sunday Adams parked his cruiser at the corner of
60th Street South and Gulfport Boulevard because residents
called the police and complained about cars speeding along
the curve.
Early in the afternoon, Adams said he hadn't written any
tickets yet. He didn't mind getting his photo in The Gabber,
either.
"At least the Chief will know I'm out here doing something!"
He joked.

Cable Rate Hike
.
Gulfport residents will soon see an
.
increase in their Bright House bills'
City Manager Tom Brobeil reports.
Bright House has notified the city
they will increase bills between once
and three dollars, depending on what
cable services a customer receives.
.
Gulfport residents pay among
the highest cable rates in Pinellas
County, according to Brobeil.
The city has absolutely no regulato-
ry authority over what programming
cable TV companies offer, or their
rates. In 1998 the U.S. Congress ab
dictated their authority to regulate
programming and rates in 1998. As .
a result, the cable industry has no
government regulation.
Brobeil also said that he has heard "an
urban legend being passed around by
people, including Customer Service
staff of Knology that the reason they
do not provide service in Gulfport is
because the City would not let them
come in,
"That claim is patently untrue,-,
Brobeil says. "The City has requested

Reappointments
to WRAB Board
The Community Redevelopment
Agency of the city of Gulfport toted
to accept the reappointment of three
existing members to the Waterfront
Redevelopment Advisory Board and
elected to postpone indefinitely the
appointment of four open slots.
The appointments were originally
scheduled to be made at the January
15 meeting, but were delayed when
several existing members of the
board who were up for reappoint-
ment realized at the last minute
they had not voiced their desire to
remain in service.
Those three members, Mike
McCue, Elizabeth Beddow and Beth
Armstrong were reappointed by
council on Tuesday.
However, council could not reach
a decision on how to procedurally

It was suggested by council mem-
ber Bob Worthington and acted upon
unanimously by consensus that the
council simply vote to reappoint the
existing members and to postpone
other appointments until a proce-
dure could be established for nomi-
nation of new members to this board

construction as early as 7 a.m., al-
though Gulfport's ordinance would be
rare in allowing activities on Sunday-
"We want to make sure that the guy
who wants to put his own new roof on
his house and can only get together a
group of buddies to help him on the
weekend can work in the evening and
on both Saturday and Sunday," said
council member Bob Worthington.
Council member Michele King,
who voted no on the new ordinance,
had argued that neighbors of those
doing home construction projects


should also be afforded consideration.
"On Sunday if I want to relax and
watch TV or listen to music or rest,
I'm not sure I want someone pounding
nails into a roof next door," said King.
The new ordinance would only
apply to commercial construction
projects and to homeowner projects
which require a permit. Light home
maintenance not requiring a per-
mit and lawn work is not covered.
The new ordinance will need topass
a second reading scheduled for the
February 19 before it goes into effect.


Noise Ordinance
Passes First Reading

By Greg Stemm
In a 4 to 1 vote, Gulfport city coun-
cil passed on first reading Tuesday a
new ordinance which would restrict
the hours of construction within the
city as well as limiting construction
related noises during designated
hours. The new ordinance limits
such activities and associated noise
to the hours of 8:00 a.m. to 9:00
p.m. Monday through Saturday and
9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. on Sunday.
The new ordinance was initiated af-
ter a number of residents complained
to the city that during the recent
construction project at the Church
of Christ of Latter Day Saints. lo-
cated at 5425 Gulfport Boulevard,
delivery trucks were arriving as
early at 5:00 a.m. and that associated
construction noises, including the
use of heavy excavating equipment
was beginning shortly thereafter.
"I've been awakened at 5:30 a.m.
by loud noises and radios and with
my whole house shaking because
of the use of heavy construction
equipment," said Elizabeth Neiley.
"There are even cracks in my ceil-
ing that have resulted from this
loud early morning construction."
Until the new ordinance was proposed
Gulfport did not have any regulations
about when construction activities
could begin or when they should cease
in the evening. City manager Tom
Brobeil said they city had researched
what ordinances or codes other mu-
nicipalities have in place. Many allow

Drivers Needed for
Road to Recovery
Cancer patients in the community
need help to get to chemotherapy and
radiation treatments. The American
Cancer Society's "Road to Recovery"
program is in need of volunteers who
are willing to drive cancer patients
to and from their life-saymg cancer
treatments. Schedules are very flex-
ible.
"Since I do not own a car or have any
relatives within 600 miles, your vol-
unteer drivers and the transportation
service are the greatest. And since I
don't have to be anxious or nervous
about getting to my chemotherapy
treatments, it's making a big differ-
ence in my health," says one cancer
patient undergoing chemotherapy.
Training, maps and directions are
provided to those who want to volun-
teer their time. Requirements include
having a safe driving record, a valid
driver's license and a vehicle that is
in good working condition.
For more information about being
a Road to Recovery volunteer, call
Cindi Crisci at 812-7028.

municipal marina which will go into
effect immediately. A monthly rental
for residents is $75, non-residents
will pay $100.
The new fee structure and availabil-
ity of public dry storage space comes
as a result of new lease which the
city negotiated with the Boca Ciega
Yacht Club and adopted on December
4, 2007. Two significant areas which
were part of the lease negotiation
was the establishment of equitable
fees for all individuals renting city of
Gulfport boat shps or dry storage and
providing for an area for public boat
dry storage in the Marina area.
The most significant aspect of the
new BCYC lease is that the city now
manages and controls the.1easing of
all city-owned Municipal Marina and
basin properties inclusive of all wet
slips and dry storage.
According to Jim O'Reilly, director
of leisure services it is anticipated
that the reconfiguration of (Jg.,exist-
ing dry storage area and the future
anne improvements an expan-
sion of the presently unimproved
areas of the property will provide a
capacity of 85 dry slips.
"The city presently has 47 dry stor-
age slips under contract through the
tranSfer of existing BCYC members
who elected to re-lease with the city
and remain on the city at the city's
established rates as provided under
the new lease," said O'Reilly.
City staff told council it is estimat-
ed that there will be an additional
$82,000 in annual revenue realized
YOm the rental of dry storage slips.

Toddlers Learn to
s Love Science
Children between the ages of two
and five are ready to dabble in science.
,
The toddlers who come to our pre-
school classes are adorable. Their lit-
t1e eyes light up with enthusiasm and
wonderment when they learn about
science," says Madeline McNaughton,
the Executive Director of the
Science Center of Pinellas County.
The Science Center has been hold-
ing preschool classes since the
1980s. The 9-week event draws
caretakers with toddlers to class
for 45 minutes each Thursday.
"The classes are always extremely
popular with grandparents who want
to spend a few hours with their grand-
children, stay-at-home parents who
want to help prepare children for the
school experience, and many other
types of caretakers," says Essie Hill,
office manager at the Science Center.
So what do toddlers learn during
pre-school science classes? During
the classes, preschool students learn
how to be 'good listeners'. They also
learn about furry animal friends,
rainbows, the night sky, the hu-
man body, sea creatures, magnets,
and Florida's early inhabitants.
Classes begin February 14 and are
held every Thursday after that in
February. They are also held on the
first three Thursdays of March and
the last three Thursdays in April.
Classes begin at 9 a.m. Cost is $10
per parent/child team for Science
Center members and $12 per par-
ent/child team for non-members.

Ia


the western part of the
Everglades. The five -of v.f a
us- our photographer, .
a friend of the camp's
owner, myself, and two of .
the Gabber's test dachs-
hunds- have met in Big
Cypress to learn about
the skunk ape, spend the
night in the wilderness,
and see if we can spot the
' southernmost Bigfoot in
the United States. None
of us know what to think, but we all
agree we want to believe.
The concept of wilderness perplexes
me. I've read that humans cannot see
wilderness;theveryideaofwilderness
precludes human interaction. But in
the rustle of the still winter morning,
far from electricity or plumbing, no
other word describes this place. Ev-
erything outside this wood cabin re-
mains untamed; if I step off the camp
to the swamp, I have left civilization.
This world tolerates humans without
welcoming us.
This makes it the perfect place,
then, to see skunk apes. The con-
cept of these creatures fascinates us
because, despite any of our physical
commonalities, they have a biologi-
cal unwillingness to cross over from
wilderness to civilization,
Dan Shealy has devoted his life to
studying the skunk ape; he believes

from
the $60-a-day places, but in its
stead you can drape yourself in a
(hopefully) docile yellow albino Bur-
mese python. Despite the building's
dog-eared appearance, animal cura-
tor Rick Scholle keeps the animal
pens, clean and the parrots, social
creatures that crave interaction, get
more here than in many homes.
If you don't know someone with
land in Big Cypress but you want to
spend the night in the 'glades, Shealy
owns a campground next to the Cen-
ter. It has more amenities than the
cabin where I kept vigil, but odds are
the campfires still smell as good and
you're still pretty close to Florida's
wilderness and, with a little luck, the
skunk ape.
As for what I saw that morning? I
can't swear I saw one. Then again, I
can't swear that I didn't.

How to get there & all that stuff:
You'll find the Skunk Ape Research
Center and campground in Ochopee,
just east of Joanie's Blue Crabs on
US 41. Visit SkunkApe.info for more
information or call (239) 695-2275.

YOU & THE


L

How is Your Legal Health?

As with your physical well-being,
you can avoid major legal problems
by periodically checking the status of
your legal health. Some of the areas
in which you may wish to consider
getting a legal "check-up" are estate
planning, wills, trusts, insurance
coverage, financial investments and
retirement planning. A review of
your legal affairs on an annual ba-
sis to ensure that all relevant legal
documents meet your current needs
is recommended.
Many times, a yearly legal check-
up will uncover legal problems that
can be corrected before they cause a
major problem. For example, with
a birth or death of a loved one, you
may wish to reevaluate your will,
trust or estate plan. Like a physi-
cian or dentist, a lawyer is trained
to diagnose legal problems or mala-
dies and recommend cures. During
your legal checkup, a review of your

Bowling, from front page
the game is making a comeback.
"It went into decline for a while,"
explams Shane. Like shuffleboard'
lawn bowling saw its devotees dwin-
dle in the later part of the twentieth
century, but there has been a revival
for the game, with new clubs pop-
ping up from Mt. Dora to California.
"We have members from Canada and
Germany. We've even had a visiting
player from North Africa."
Aside from the game's renaissance,
lawn bowling has little in common
with shuffleboard. For one thing,
it's a great deal trickier, requiring a
bit more finesse. Play usually con-
sists of three bowls to an end, where
each team stands, with three play-
ers on each team. The "bowl"-not a
ball, though it looks like one-has a
weighted side that, when rolled prop-
erly, curves into the "jack," a small,
white spherical target point. The
closest to the jack wins and retains all
bragging rights.
However, lest you think that lawn
bowling's challenges outweigh the
fun-or that you must be an expert

of continuing to fund the position.
"I spoke to someone in Minnesota
recently and they knew about the
Gulfport Senior Center and compli-

"We shouldn't put that reputation in
jeopardy. We need to stop and take
a look at what our priorities are as a
city."
"I watched this position grow from
a part time one to a full time one and
it's served our citizens well," .said
Judy Ryerson, council member-elect.
"It would be crying shame if we elimi-
nated a position which has resulted in
so many benefits to our citizens. We
need to save it."
Council members agreed.
"The state's department of elder af-
fairs has often held our center up as
a model for all other center's in the
state," said vice mayor Ted Phillips.
"I don't care what other positions we
might have to eliminate to save this
one, but we absolutely can not let this
position eHmbated have just one

person to run of the best senior cen-

Colors Come Alive
on Treasure Island
Colors continue to come alive at
the Treasure Island Art Center
in February, including the colors
of two artists new to the Center.
Bruce Fallender, a New Jersey.
native on exhibit at the Center, has
worked in all aspects of the arts,
from painter to the owner of an art
center. He has chosen only award-
winning paintings for the show.
His displayed works run the gamut
from Victorian Still Life, a nostal-
gic charcoal, to Reaching Tbabroth,
an acrylic with a hint of the Orient.
Also exhibiting for the first time
at the Center, Sonia Smith hails
from Toronto. Working with acryl-
ics, Smith paints with boldness and
whimsy, as seen in paintings like A
TouchofOrangeand TipsyHouses.
Both artists have exhibits at
the Treasure Island Art Center,
located on the corner of Park and
106th Avenue in Treasure Island.

Holding Teen
Drivers Accountable
With motor vehicle accidents claim-

lives each year, a new survey com-
missioned by Allstate Insurance re.
veals that many teens do not take
personal responsibility for safe driv-
ing and continue to engage in dan-
gerous driving behaviors.
While nearly 90 percent of teens
surveyed said they hope their friends
will be safer on the road in 2008, just
11 percent included "driving more
safely" among their personal New
Year resolutions. One-third (34 per-
cent) of teens surveyed k-eported be-

the driver was being careless, but did
not say anything to the driver.

practices with their teenagers. The

so accurate, it made me want to go
home and start throwing things out.
Maybe next weekend.
The most "normal" event so far was
the first one. It was the opening re-
ception for "Shape and Subject, a sur-
vey of contemporary art" installed in
the offices of Dream Inc. at 2321 49th
Street. It was exactly what it sounds
like, an installation of a broad range
of contemporary art by six local art-
ists. I think that show continues until
February 29, if you would still like to
stop in and see it.
Still coming up at the Neighborhood
Center are: "Sound Me Something
New," new music of the 21st Cen-
tury, this Saturday; a "Civilization
Celebration and Expo" and the first
annual civilization prize, Saturday,
February 16; and "Mind Catcher," a
video and new media festival, Satur-
day, February 23.
There was also a labyrinth behind
Pegasus Plaza on January.26, and
a tie-in to the monthly celebrations
at The Blueberry Patch (4923 20th
Avenue South) on February 1; there
will be three more on the February
7, 11 and 22. The Patch has been go-
ing for 30 years in Gulfport, with its
"impromptu celebrations of human
expression.
Still to come are an installation
along 49th Street called "The Hatch-
ing of the Welttanscauung" by ATAX,
where strange, cautionary creatures
hatch from a tower and spread along
the street. Don't know what else to say
about it; we'll have to wait and see.
Think pink islands in Biscayne Bay
and orange flags in Central Park.
And there will be some sort of parade
on 49th Street, around dusk, to mark
the end of 49/1, followed by a closing
or wrap-up party at the Neighborhood
Center and the unveiling of the new
piece of public art that the city com-
missioned for the center property.
And there you have it. It's hardly
standard fare for an art festival, in
this town or any other town. But it's
a big idea, and one well worth pursu-
ing, I think. After all, its goal is to
bring new life onto 49th Street.
I hope you can make it to some of the
remaining events. If you do, I'll prob-
ably see you there.

Don't know how many of you have
noticed, but a bunch of small
events that add up to something
pretty big have been occurring along
49th Street since mid-January. And
no, I'm not talking about the ongoing
streetscape project, although that's
pretty important, too.
I'm talking about "49/1," billed as
"49 Days and Nights of Contempo-
rary Art" on 49th Street. The "1" in
the title stands for "first," as in the
first annual event of many.
The event is the brainchild of City
of Imagination, a loosely organized
group in Gulfport that promotes art
in public places, and of its guiding
light, Frank Hibrandt. And the big
idea is to promote the redeveloping
49th Street corridor as an ideal lo-
cation for small, creative businesses
like architects and designers.
The idea came about by accident.
Hibrandt was visiting a run-down,
semi-industrial area in Tampa just
off Kennedy Boulevard and was sur-
prised to find a number of small busi-
nesses with offices there architects,
designers, small creative types. And
he wondered, why here? Why not in
Gulfport? Why not on 49th Street?
We have a much more desirable loca-
tion right in Gulfport.
And he was correct; 49th Street
would be ideal. It's a perfect location,
witli instant access to St. Petersburg,
a five-minute drive to I-275 and no
more than 10 minutes to, the beach-
es.
Plus, it has access to all the ame-
nities that Gulfport has to offer, like
numerous restaurants to choose from
for luncheon meetings, the theater
for large meetings, the Casino if you
want to do something big.
Because it's an up-and-coming area,
the rent on 49th Street is low. And
there's lots of space available.
So then, the question became, how
Gabber February 7 February I 3, 2008


A little art and

Roger Turner
VIEWPOINT

do you attract attention to 49th Street?
Or more specifically, how do you attract
the attention of creative types and let
them know that 49th Street is here,
waiting for them?
The answer they came up with at City
of Imagination was an art festivaL Or
maybe an art event is the better term.
Or maybe a bunch of events, all tied to-
gether under one umbrella called 49/1
is the best way to describe it. That's
what has been going on since the mid-
dle of January and will continue until
the end of February. I hope you can
get out and enjoy a little of it before it
ends.
The individual events are happen-
ing mostly on weekends, and they're
an eclectic bunch. Don't expect any-
thing ordinary, like tents set up in
the streets with artists pitching their
wares, or staid, hushed galleries with
artwork quietly hanging on the walls.
You'll find nothing that is nearly that
normal here.
I've attended two events, so far, both
of them at the Neighborhood Center,
neither of them standard or typical.
Two weeks ago, they held a two-day
event called "Two Wheel Icon," which,
more than anything, paid homage to
the motorcycle. The centerpiece of
the installation was a motorcycle sur-
rounded by a sea of items that repre-
sented the freedom of life on the road.
And in the parking lot, there were free
tours of Gulfport in the sidecar of a mo-
torcycle driven by Al Davis. I took one,
a first for me. See what I mean? Hardly
typical.
Then last weekend, they held a short
film festival (short as in short filme,
not short festival, although it was that,
too) called "Eye Catcher." My favorite
was a 20-minute film by Victoria Jor-
gensen about all the "stuff" we buy,
obtain, and collect and fill our homes,
Our garages, and even rented storage
spaces with. The film was so true, and

she said, smiling at Sam and trying
to make herself sound casual. Push-
ing too hard was usually counterpro-
ductive.
"Uh-huh," Sam answered. "I am
happy."
"Any reason in particular?"
Sam just shrugged her shoulders,
but a mysterious little smile appeared
on her face, one that Rebecca couldn't
remember having seen before.
Rebecca took a sip of her third Screw-
driver of the day.
"I mean," she continued, "what are
you so happy about? There must be
some reason.
Sam shrugged again, but this time,
there was almost a sly look in her
eyes.
"I'm happy to be here," she answered,
finaHy. "I always like being here with
you.
Rebecca leaned back in her chair.
She was almost certain that Sam's
answer was subterfuge, a ploy Sam
was using to throw her off the track.
She'd never known Sam to try any-
thing like that.
"Are you keeping something from
me?" she asked, pressuring Sam
now.
Sam shook her head, not answer-
Ing.
"Because you know you shouldn't
keep things from me. How can I look
after you if you keep things from
me?"
Now Sam looked distressed, but she
shook her head stubbornly.
Rebecca rubbed her head. I'm get-
'!ga headache, she thought, and
thts isn't helping.
Before she could decide what to do
next, the phone rang, so she picked
up her glass and went to answer it.
"Hello?" she said, hoping she knew
who was calling,
"Rebecca, this is James."
"Oh, yes, James," she said, surprised
in spite of herself.
"I'd love to come for dinner next Sat-
urday," he said immediately. "What
can I bring? Some wine?"
"Yes," she said, "that would be love-
ly." And suddenly, her issue with Sam
didn't seem so important.

This is a work of fiction. The events,
the people and, especially, the victims
are all fictional as well. No similarity

It had been a busy morn-

11ing, but that was all right;
Rebecca had it under con-
trol, as usual. She always had it un-
der control, whatever "it" was. She
was proud, in fact, of her control.
When she returned from the grocery
store, the first thing she did was mix
the chocolate cake and pop it into the
oven. It needed time to cool, which it
was now doing in its pan.on the coun-
ter, before she could apply the can of
ready-made icing sitting next to it,
ready to go.
And the spaghetti sauce was simmer-
ing away on the stove, straight out of
the jar except for a bit of garlic, basil
and oregano that Rebecca had added
- her "secret ingredients." She would
add some frozen, prepared meat balls .
to the pot in a few minutes.
' The only thing left to do was mix
some salad, and that would be easy.
Since Sam didn't eat salad, Rebecca
needed to make it only for herself.
And then, of course, there was the
phone call to make.
She didn't know why she hadn't
made the phone call to James, yet,
and it bothered her. It was the one
part of the morning, and of herself,
that she didn't seem to have much
control over. Why? she asked herself.
What am l worried about?
Rebecca poured herself a glass of or-
ange juice before starting on the sal-
ad, then, almost as an afterthought,
reached into a cupboard, pulled out a
bottle of vodka, and poured a healthy
shot into the juice. Maybe this will
help, she thought, already feeling
guilty about drinking before noon.
And it did. By the time she finished
the salad, she had also finished the
orange juice and was feeling decid-
edly calmer. So she poured herself
some more juice, and another shot,
and carried it into the sun room to
call James.
Unfortunately, he didn't answer;
his answering machine picked up in-
stead. Rebecca would have preferred
Gabber February 7 February 13, 2008


to talk to him directly but, after com-
ing this far, she wasn't about to throw
in the towel.
"James," she said, "this is Rebecca."
Now she was scrambling, trying
to figure out what to say. Leaving
messages was so artificial, so unlike
normal conversation. She wanted
to sound friendly but not anxious or
desperate, matter-of-fact but not cool
or distant. She wanted to sound just
right.
"Last night was a lovely evening,"
she said, "and I wanted to tell you
how much I enjoyed it. Thank you
very much."
Rebecca cringed. Don't gush, she told
herself. Get to the point.
"And I would also like to invite you
to dinner at my house next Saturday
night. I haven't had the opportunity
to cook much, lately, and I thought it
would be fun to cook dinner for just
the two of us.
She took a breath.
"And there's also something I'd like
to talk to you about nothing too se-
rious, just something I have on my
mind. So call me, will you, and let me
know. You have my number. I plan to
be home all day."
She cringed again, then said
"Thanks" and hung up the phone.
Too much? she wondered. Not
enough?
It didn't matter the deed was done.
She took another drink of her orange
juice and vodka.
*
Lunch was going well, or as well as
these things ever went. Sam wasn't
much of a conversationalist. Any
talk between them usually consisted
of Rebecca asking Sam about what
was going on in her life, limited as it
was, and Sam answering with as few
words as possible,
But today, Sam was, by her stan
dards at least, absolutely talkative.
Giddy, even. And Rebecca was trying
to figure out what was going on.
"You seem awfully happy, today,"

Public Comment

& .
C OUH011 UOte s
Excerpts heard at the February 5, 2008 Gulfport city council meeting

"I think our police would have better things to do with their time
than to aggressively pursue an anonymous phone call tipping them
off to betting taking place at a local pub during the Super Bowl.
They used taxpayers money to break up a pool totally $82. It was
disgraceful and distasteful to see our police use their time in that
way." Gulfport resident Gerald Rocks on a raid that Gulfport police
made on a local tavern after an anonymous tip that betting was taking
place on the Super Bowl.

"This has got to be one of the best mission statements I've ever read.
It's simple, concise and not full of a bunch of extemporaneous fluff
I wish other organizations I've been involved with had such good
statements." Ted Phillips, vice mayor, on the adoption of a new mission
statement for the Gulfport Multipurpose Senior Center.

"I can't believe not a single council member commented on the
stormwater run-off problem in Clam Bayou. They Bayou is going
away whether you believe it or not. Pretty soon a lot of the property
back there won't be considered waterfront anymore and that will be
reflected negatively in the city's tax roles. If you are going to be a
part of a consortium you should insist on the specifics about where
the testing (for nitrogen) is done. It's time the council gets serious
about this and speaks up and supports it."- Al Davis, Gulfport Water
Watch, commenting on the approval by council to help fund an assessment
report on nitrogen levels in Tampa Bay and Boca Ciega Bay. .

Gulfport Whys
By Cathy Salusui



9: What purpose does the Teen Council serve? Does the city run this pro-
gram and, if so, how do they pay for it? How do toons join and why would
a teen want to join the Teen Council? What do they do?
A: Think of Teen Council as City Council, Jr. you know, some of the re-
sponsibility without the colorful quotes in the paper on Thursday. Teen
Council, part of Gulfport's Recreation Division, offers teens a taste of
politics without sucking them in completely. Teen Council basically does four
thmgs:
1. Recommends equipment needs and budgetary considerations for parks and
recreation programs.
.
2. Provides suggestions and assistance with youth events for city-sponsored
festivals and programs.
3. Organizes and performs projects which would benefit the community.
4. Serves as an advisory board on issues related to young people that City Coun-
cil wishes to delegate for consideration to the Gulfport Teen Council.
Each member also performs 20 hours of community service as part of his or her
term.
Currently nine teens serve on Teen Council: seven regular members and two
alternate members. You don't have to live in Gulfport to serve on Teen Council;
only five members must live in Gulfport. If you don't live in Gulfport and want
to serve on Teen Council, you still can as long as you're involved in at least one
city-established teen program, such as Fire Explorers.
As for how the city pays for the program, Teen Council members don't get paid,
so that takes a chunk out of operating costs. The Teen Council also has fund rais-
ing activities (for example, they sell the concessions at Friday night Movies By
The Bay). The rest of their budget comes from the City's General Fund Budget.
Recreation Division. .
Why do people join Teen Council? Teens do get "community experiences by
attending local and state conferences, participating in community services proj-
ects and by &presenting the best of the City's youth," O'Reilly says. High school
. .
students considering politics as a career path should also get involved. An added
benefit: Teen Council counts as volunteer hours for anyone who wants to get a
Bright Futures Scholarship.
So how do you sign up? First, get a recommendation from a principal, school
counselor, teacher or an adult not related to you. Next, Fill out the Application
To Serve On City Boards/Committees (available at City Hall). and submit them
together,
The Teen Council meets on the third Tuesday of each month, prior to the regu-
larly scheduled City Council meeting. The committee appoints a chairperson
and vice-chairperson, annually, from among its regular members.
If you want to know more, you can always call Leisure Services. Jim O'Reilly or
one of his staff can answer any more detailed questions about Teen Council. You
can reach them at 893-1067.

Bogie Health Occupation Students Win Awards
By Greg Stemm
An enthusiastic group of 19 students who are members of the Health Occu-
pations Students of America organization at Boca Ciega High School recently
won several awards in numerous entegories at the regional competition heki
in Lakeland January 10 and 11. They will travel on to the state competition in
Orlando set for April 10-14. From there, they may have opportunities to travel
to Dallas for nationals in June.
About 20 schools including representatives from Pinellas, Hillsborough. Polk
and Pasco counties participated in the regional competition. Traditionally
there are about 1200 competitors at the state level and over 5.000 at the na-
tionals. The group from Boca Ciega High School has had someone go to nation-
als every year for the past several years and many are hoping to progress to
.
that level this summer.
A few of the many categories included medical math, physical therapy. emer-
gency medical technician, parliamentary procedures, the Raiser Permante Na-
-
tional Health Care Issues Exam, chnical specialty, nursing assistant. veteri-
nary assistant, chapter newsletter and several more.
.
I think events like this help us to realize our true potential and show us
what we can really do." said Jacob Agne, who would like to pursue a enreer in
anesthesiology. "Participating in stuff like this makes me a better leader.
"This is the kind of thing that looks good on a resume and helps train you
for what really happens in your field. It sharpens your people skills too," said
Daniel Distacio, who would like to become an EhlT Technician.
The H.O.S.A. advisor Lissa Bartle said the group has grown dramatialli.
over the past five years from just 8 students to about 65 now. She said they are
actively seeking donations to help offset the cost of sending such a large group
of winners to the state competition. "We estimate it will cost about $4.000 to
get everyone there and it will be around $400 per person for anyone who moves
on to the national competition just a few months later." she said.
The group plans to participate iII the Get Rescued...in Gulfport event on
Saturday, March 1 where Bartle said the group will be selling Hrst aid kits for
humans and pets as a fundraiser. Individuals may also contact Boca Ciega
High School to make donations.

to anybody, especially poor people try-
ing to make ends meet," said Bliesner,
whose group tries to improve the eco-
nomic conditions in low-income neigh-
borhoods.
"But the shelf life of this kind of stim-
ulus is for 30 to 45 days," he added. "It's
sort of like delivering an electric shock
to a person who's had a heart attack.
And the current proposal doesn't do
anything to address the real problems
of the past couple years, such as the
practice of attaching home mortgages
to speculation on Wall Street."
Of course, in a way this spending does
reflect our Gross National Product, if
your definition of "product" is "debt."
Debt is the thing that Americans are
best at producing. Debt for exports.
Debt for credit cards. Debt for govern-
ment spending, which will only be in-
creased when the government spends
$100 billion putting these checks into
our mailbox.
"I think our problem is that we're
spending too much," said Kelly Cun-
ningham, economist with the San Diego
Institute for Poliev Research. "I don't
know that trying to encourage people
to spend more will help. It seems like
it will only prolong the coming corree-
tion that has to come. I think we should
take our medicine and start paying off
the huge debts that we have as a na-
tion.
At a recent economic forum at the Uni-
versity of San Diego, economists were
split over the rebate. "Something needs
to be done to boost the consumer," said
University of San Diego economist Alan
Gin. "The tax rebate will help a little
bit but not a tremendous amount for
some people who are under stress from
high oil prices and rising unemploy-
ment."
But Marney Cox, economist at the San
Diego Association of Governments, sug-
gested that the money would provide
relatively little help compared with the
amount of debt that the government
would take on. He suggested that the
nloney would be better spent by in-
vesting in the nation's infrastructure,
which would put more people to work.
And Mark Cafferty, interim chief ex-
ecutive director of the San Diego Work-
force Partnership, suggested that it
might be better to devote more money
to improving job-training and educa-
tional programs in order to help people
find more productive employment.
Infrastructure? Job-training? Edu-
cation? Those kinds of things sound
suspiciously like investing rather than
spending. And as we all know, spend-
ing is king.


paycheck, you're more likely to spend
that extra dollar.
1 might sound like 1'm upset about
getting this money. I'm not. In fact, I
can't wait to get that check. I'm sure
or at least I hope the vast majority of
people reading this column will use the
money wisely.
But there's something worrisome
about a society that measures itself
not by how much it makes but by how
much it spends. Two-thirds of our so-
called Gross Domestic Product is made
up of consumer spending, which is why
this money giveaway is seen as boost-
ing the economy. The remaining third
is mostly made up of business and gov-
ernment spending.
In other words, the Gross Dgmestic
Product m reality measures our Gross
Domestic Consumption, with emphasis
on the word "gross.
Back when economists first conceived
of the Gross Domestic Product, there
was a reason for this. There was a strong
correlation between spending and pro
auction. Just a few decades ago, after
all, when we spent our money at the
car lot, department store, supermarket
or gas station, it generally meant we
were helping employ autoworkers in
Detroit, oil drillers in Texas, toymak-
ers in Ohio, TV manufacturers in New
York or textile workers in the Caroli-
nas. In other words, the spending was
tied to our domestic production.
Those days, a huge chunk of our
spending goes to places such as China,
Mexico or Saudi Arabia. The short-tern,
boost in spending might help employ
the retail workers who are peddling
those goods, but will it truly invigorate
our economy?
This has all been tried before.
In 2001, the Bush administration is-
sued advance-refund checks to taxpay-
ers, which came to as much as $600 for
married couples. Middle-class recipi-
onts typically stuffed the checks into
their savings accounts. A recent con-
gressional study said they spent less
than 20 percent of the checks. The same
study said that poorer people generally
spent the money immediately. But did
that one-time cash injection make any
significant difference to the economy?
Jim Bliesnor, director of the San Diego
Reinvestment Task Force, is doubtful.
"I wouldn't want to deny those checks


By Dean Calbreath

Tax rebates 'will

help a little bit '
economist says
I don't know about you, but I'm already
developing a list of ideas for how to use
that check the government will soon be
sending out to stimulate the economy:
pay off my income taxes, pump up the
kids' college funds and pay for a couple
of things in cash instead of using my
credit card.
Unfortunately, that is precisely the
kind of thinking that our fearless lead-
ers in Washington hate. Which is one
reason I doubt this $145 billion "finan-
cial stimulus" program will have any
significant or lasting effect on the econ-
omy, other than to put the government
$100 billion deeper in debt.
Face it. The government has no inter-
est in having us save or invest those
checks, which will range from $300 for
a single, childless, semi-employed per-
son to $1,800 for a couple of married
taxpayers with two children (couples
with more children will get more mon-
ey).
They hope we'll ke.ep the money in our
pockets long enough to cash it in and
run down to the electronics store and
get a nice flat-screen TV.
In short, the reason we're getting this
money is that the government wants us
to spend like drunken sailors.
"I've always said that what we needed
to do was to put money in the hands
of those who will spend it right away,"
said House Speaker Nancy Pelosi as
she unveiled the proposal.
"The incentives in this package will
lead to higher consumer spending,"
said President Bush, as he gave the
proposal his blessing.
Federal Reser;e Chairman Ben Ber-
nanke said the money would be most
effective by being targeted at the poor.
Not because it would help them rise out
of poverty, but rather because they do
a much better job of spending cash im-
mediately, because their budgets don't
allow for the luxury of saving.
"Getting money to low- and moderate-
income people is good to get a bigger
bang for the buck," Bernanke told Con-
gress as it was devising the pack ago. "If
you're somebody who lives paycheck to
