Rep. Kriseman Won't Meet With Gulf port Water Watch


ar~rq 'I I~h~u1F4;m~u4Eyrumrm


B,- Cath,* SalUSki
.
After .10 years of selling bread,
nulk, and meat to the surround-
ing communities, the Winn Di-
xie on the corner of 49th Street
South and Gulfport Boulevard
will close. The store will close its
doors for good at noon on Febru-
ary 29, Store Director Charlie
Bennett told The Gabber.
"This store's been here fif-
ty years," Bennett said. He's
worked with Winn Dixie for 33
of those years. They decided
to close the store "because the
lease was up, the numbers, the
age of the location, and the age
of the shopping center," Bennett
added.

Representative Rick
Kriseman will not meet
with Gulfport Water
Watch to discuss Clam
Bayou. In a letter dated
January 30, 2008, Krise-
man said that "since
meeting with your group
Florida House on September 20th of last
Representative year, it has become clear
Rick Kriseman to my office that the goal
of fixing Clam Bayou has
become secondary to 'winning the debate' or
'political score-settling' within the Gulfport
community."
"Leveling accusations at and questioning the
motives of fellow residents, government em-
ployees, and elected officials is simply distaste-
ful and disappointing. I will not allow my office
to enter into a debate that centers on personal
attacks and seemingly has little to do with the
bayou," Kriseman's letter continued.
"I think it's impossible in any circumstance
from the problem and the process from people
and personalities," Al Davis, Gulfport Water
Watch founder, said of Kriseman's allegations,
adding that "it would be less than realistic to
address the Clam Bayou issues without ad-
dressing the principal characters. As time has
gone by, it is very difficult to approach any of

screenings are fast, painless and
affordable. They help identify poten-
tial health problems such as blocked
arteries and irregular heart rhythm,
abdominal aortic aneurysms, and
hardening of the arteries in the legs,
which is a strong predictor of heart
disease. A bone density screening to
assess osteoporosis risk is also of-
fered and is appropriate for both men
and women.


Register for a Wellness Package
with Heart Rhythm for $149. All five
screenings take 60-90 minutes to
complete.
Life Line Screening was established
in 1993, and has since become the
nation's leading provider of preven-
tive screenings.
For more information regarding
the screenings or to schedule an ap-
pointment, call 1-800-697-9721. Pre-
registration is required.








The Rescue promotes the realities
of pet ownership, educating the pub-
lic concerning pet overpopulation
and the importance of spaying and
neutering pets; humane treatment
of animals through education and
public awareness; and microchip-
ping pets so that a lost pet can be
reunited with its family.
Volunteers are always needed to
accomplish the Rescue's mission.

essential part of the Rescue. In ad-
dition, there are many other tasks
to be completed computer work,

raising, correspondence, etc. All do-

The Rescue was established at
the end of January 2007 and by the
end of December, over 130 dogs had
been rescued, and over 100 of them
had been placed in their "forever
homes". Most of the dogs came from
Levy County Animal Services where
animals are euthanized after only
six days if someone doesn't come
to their aid. All of these rescued
animals have turned into happy,
healthy, well-adjusted dogs because
of the love, care and commitment
of the volunteers of Florida Doggie
Paws Rescue.


Doggie Paws Rescue
Needs Volunteers
Florida Doggie Paws Rescue, Inc. is
an all-volunteer foster-based orga.
nization. This grass roots rescue or-
ganization was formed one year ago
by seven dedicated people with one
common goal: to save the dogs. The
group's mission is to responsibly res-
cue, rehabilitate, foster and find per-
manent loving homes for unwanted,
abandoned and abused small-to-
medium breed dogs throughout the
state of Florida.

Plant Some Sea Oats
.
Treasure Island is seeking volun-
teers from the community to help
plant sea oats on Treasure Island
on Saturday, February 16. The
Pinellas County Department of
Environmental IVIanagement pro-
vides the plants; the Treasure Island
Beach Stewardship Committee
brings the refreshments and train
ing on properly planting sea oats.
Volunteers should meet at 8:30 a.m.
on the beach at thel26 Avenue beach
access. Bring a shovel or a spade.
Beach Stewardship Committee


Chairman Dennis Velasco said the
project includes planting new sea
oats at several locations on Treasure
Island's beach.
"We're steadily closing the gaps
in our dune system," said Velasco.
"Our goal is continuous dune line
along Treasure Island's 3.8 mile
beach. I estimate we're about 75%
complete."
Sea oats are important because
they help to stabilize the sand on
the dunes and can help the dunes to
accumulate sand, rather than erod-
ing. However, people walk over and


across sand dunes, says Velasco,
dislodging the plants and leaving
the dunes unprotected from wind,
rain and coastal erosion. Planting
sea oats in areas prone to coastal
erosion can help restore and protect
the dunes that in turn help protect
the homes and businesses behind
the dune area," he added.
Volunteers may contribute any
amount of time they have available.
So far, community response and in-
terest in prior sea oat planting proj-
ects has been exceptional.
Assisting the city with rebuilding
the dunes through sea oats planting
is an excellent community service
opportunity for businesses, church-
es, civic groups and other organiza-
tions. Contact Dennis Velasco at
360-1901 or the City of Treasure
Island Public Information Office at
547-4575 to volunteer or for more
in formation.

A Little Something
For the Ladies
By Shelly Wilson
Valentine's Day can be a tough
time for guys. What do you get for
the special ladies in your life? If
you're part of the Gulfport Method-
ist Church, you give them a feast.
Last Saturday evening, the Gulfport
Methodist Men honored all of the
ladies of the church with a special
Valentine's dinner, a tradition the
ladies have come to look forward to.
"The men do all of the cooking, the
preparations, the serving-every-
thing," said President of the Gulfport
Methodist Men, Louis Amandola,
who sat with his family as they en-
joyed baked ham, real mashed po-
.
states and strmg beans with bacon
and almonds. The delicious menu
was the creation of head chef ("chef
extraordinaire," as Amandola called
him), Mike Morris, and after dinner,
guests enjoyed their choice of sev-
eral deserts-

YOU & THE


L

How is Your Legal
Health?
Part 2
In our last article, the need for pe-
riodic legal checkups was examined,
The following are some of the legal
problems which may be uncovered
by a legal checkup:
Wills and Estate Planning
An indicator of good legal health
usually includes having a valid will
and some basic estate plan. If you
don't have a will, your personal and
real property may not be distributed
in accordance with your desires. In
addition, unnecessary expenses and
taxes may be incurred and certain
family members could possibly in-
herit your assets contrary to your
desires.
A trust is another effective estate
planning document. A trust allows

in your old will or trust by writing

which you want to eliminate as this
may invalidate your documents.
Divorce
A lawyer should be consulted if your
marriage is ending or you are con-
templating ending your marriage.
Issues concerning child custody, fi-
nancial support and a fair division of
the marital property will need to be
addressed. If your spouse threatens
to harass or harm you, hide marital
property or take your children in
violation of your visitation or cus-
tody rights, a lawyer can assist you
in seeking protection against these
improper acts of your spouse.

you to transfer property to your des-
ignated heirs utilizing a successor
trustee to implement your specific
instructions. If you create a trust
in a last will and testament, this is
called a testamentary trust. Another
form of trust is a living trust, which
is created by a written contract.
Living trusts are very useful estate
planning tools for everyone not
only the very wealthy. A living trust
assists in the avoidance of probate
and will help in keeping your affairs
out of the public record and private.
It is critical to review your estate
planning documents whenever im-
portant changes in your life occur.
If you marry, move to a new state,
have a child or lose a loved one, an
update of your legal documents may
be necessary. Also, it is.an excellent
idea to discuss with your lawyer if
your estate plan is keeping pace with
the value of your property and is up-
dated to address changes in Florida
law and tax laws. Revisions may be
made with the drafting of new docu-
ments or an amendment to existing
documents may be necessary. It is
important to never make a change

he from the branch above the path.
it seems the newest wild addition
to Boyd Hill has fallen in love.
Although it's possible the wild owl
is a female trying to drive out the
competition, barred owl mating sea-
son starts in February. Most likely,
park rangers and volunteers agree,
he wants to make Phantom his mate.
He has perched close to Phantom's
aviary every day since*Friday. She
doesn't seem put out or threatened


hy the attention, but it's hard to tell
sometimes what an owl's thinking.
The courtship theory gained more
support a few days ago. The wild owl
swooped down to Phantom, hooked
his talons on the screen, and called
out to her through the chicken wire.
To find out more about Boyd Hill's
birds of prey, contact them at 893-
7326.

CathySalustri@TheGabber.com


Owls, from front page
Both owls sat on a shelf above the
door, so intrigued with something
outside their enclosure that Eisen-
hauer opened the door and the owls
paid no attention to her. She called
Gabe Vargo over to see what had the
little birds' attention.
Vargo volunteers with the Birds of
Prey program at the park. He said
the two owls "were utterly fixated on
something outside the door, and with
good reason." Just a few wingspans
away sat a barred owl. Barred owls
will eat screech owls, according to
Vargo, so the tiny twosome perhaps
had good reason for their anxiety.
But this visitor apparently had
something else in mind.
To the left of the screech owls,
safely separated by chicken wire,
lives Phantom, a seven-year-old
barred owl. Six years ago, a motorist
hit Phantom, stopped her car, and
didn't see any injuries. Relieved, she
backed up and crushed Phantom's
wing. A veterinarian had to ampu-
tate the tip, and Phantom came to
stay at Boyd Hill. She will never fly.
Instead she passes her time watch-
ing the world around her, feasting
o dot re.t Varg)
food; volunteers add vitamin sup-
plements to the mice to make sure
Phantom gets proper nutrition.
"If she were in the wild she'd be
hunting along the edges of swamps
and wet area," Vargo explained.
If she were in the wild she'd be do-
ing something else she can't do from
her aviary: finding a partner.
Owls mate for life. They hunt sepa-
rately but return to the same sweet-
heart every year around Valentine's
Day. Phantom, who has spent her
entire adult life in a pen, has never
found herself a mate. She's never
even had a visitor; local birder Ron
Smith says Boyd Hill hasn't had any
reported incidences of barred owls
since the 1970s.
"We've never had a barred owl in
this park as far as I know," Park
ranger Candy Arnold said to a group
watching the barred owl watching
Phantom Tuesday morning. As the
group stared at the wild raptor and
picked through its cast, or pellets of
regurgitated indigestible bones and
cartilage from the owl's most recent
meal, the owl paid no attention to
the humans. He and Phantom, who
had just finished a conversation con-
sisting of a lot of hooting, gazed at
each other, she from inside her pen,

man and disparaged Gulfport Water
Watch. Kriseman "never answered.
Kriseman met with Gulfport Water
Watch on September 20, 2007, accord-
ing to his letter. He also toured Clam
Bayou in a pontoon boat in December
2007. He said he "is convinced that
progress is being made," but promised
he would "continue to monitor the
,,
situation.
"I will not hesitate to reschedule a
meeting if necessary," Kriseman said
in his letter "While my office will not
.
organize a meeting at this time, we
,,
will retain fully engaged.
Cindy Davis, one of Gulfport Water
,
Watch's founders, says Kriseman s
decision not to meet with the group s
disappointing." Al Davis says Krise-
,,
man "Is duplicitous and arrogant
and says that Kriseman "has set the
,,
Bayou aside for his own interests.
It's sad that in our form of govern-
ment, those citizens who respond to
the call to come forward and partici-
pate are vilified for their participa-
tron. Clam Bayou restoration is not
about egos," Cindy Davis added, "it's
about the return of habitat to as close
.
as possible to its condition prior to
,,
disturbance.


to me it was obviously somebody of
some importance. Whether it was a
staff member or a Council member,
they did not say and I did not want to
know. I was disheartened ... that they
wanted to listen to one person in par-
ticular. I think it's pretty poor reason-
ing because I believe that there's a lot
,,
of people that were interested in it.
"It's ironic that Worthington would
make that statement," Kriseman said
of the initial statement "since he's the
only one who has sat down with me."
"It was his office that told me; I
didn't make it up," Worthington said.
Worthington would not say who he
thought had "poisoned" Kriseman's
mind against the summit, saying only
"I have no idea."
"They can dance around this all they
want, but they're talking about Mi-
chele King. We've had people call our
office and say, 'I can't believe Michele
got to you' "
.
Al Davis said he asked Kriseman
who had spoken against Clam Bay-
ou. "I want to know who that council
member is, who is ethically bound to
support Clam Bayou," Davis said he
told Kriseman. He admits that he
.
did ask Kriseman if Councilwoman
Michele King had spoken to Krise-

Runnels works as the Aquatic Pre-
serve Manager for the Department of

As Gulfport Water Watch approached
government agencies throughout the
state, Davis said, "they all say to me
who do you see as the prime obstacles.
The answer, based on my experience,
,,
is based on those two guys.
There's some political score settling
going on," Kriseman told The Gabber
during a phone interview Monday af-
ternoon. Kriseman said that Council-
man Worthington's accusations that a
certain Gulfport council or staff mem-
ber campaigned Kriseman not to meet
with Gulfport Water Watch played a
factor in his decision not to meet with
the group.
Worthington said that Kriseman's
office told him that someone in the
City had disparaged the credibility of
Gulfport Water Watch and others in-
.
evolved with Clam Bayou
"l had talked to Mr. Kriseman's office
and they had sad that someone from
the City had been talking to them and
had conveyed to them that they were
not in favor of any further action to
Clam Bayou. They did not say who;

IN. ..
Donna Bollenbach has more than just a powerful lens. As a naturalist, and a life-long lover
of the designs and creatures of the natural world, Bollenbach has combined her passion and
her expertise to create art.


was careful to point out that fright-
ened animals pose more than just a
flight risk. "In some species of frogs.
though, their color fades when they
are startled."
It's gems like these that make Bol-
lenbach an accomplished nature
photographer, as well as a popu-
lar speaker. Even if capturing the
world on film is not your style, Bol-
lenbach's contagious love of nature
proves captivating.
Bollenbach is a certified Master
Naturalist in the Wetlands Mod-
ule. This academic phrase simply
confirms what you will find on Bol-
lenbach's website, florafaunafotog-
raphy.com: she has a unique un-
derstanding and appreciation for
Florida's dynamic ecosystems. The
sensitive compositions on her web-
site feature scrub palms rising out
of an early morning mist, wading
birds juggling fish, mangroves dan-
gling their legs over still waters-all
captured with a technical mastery
that insures that the subject is the
star.
"Nature photography is all about
timing," she says. "You've got to be


there at the 'magical moment.'"
In the world of nature photogra-
phy, though, "timing" is really a eu-
phemism for waiting. But, part of
Bollenbach's photographic success
can be attributed to the fact that,
even on a "slow" day, she likes noth-
ing more than to spend hours im-
mersed in the richness of Florida's
habitats.
Far from the urban centers and
theme parks, Bollenbach said she
wanted to learn more about the
state through her photography.
She has traveled all over Florida's
natural environments and brought
home shots that typify its beauty
apart from ever-encroaching devel-
opment. From the Everglades to
Boyd Hill, Bollenbach hunts flora
and fauna digitally, preserving it as
a means to communicate both the
art of photography and the wonders
of nature.
"Mostly, nature is my passion," says
Bollenbach, as she stands, camera
ready, watching a group of young
students delight in the creatures at
Sawgrass. "That's why I do it."

Gabber February I 4 February 20, 2008


The Art of Passion
By Shelly Wilson *

As a nature photographer, it's
important for Donna Bollenhach
to blend in with her surroundings.
And yet, on a crisp. sunny afternoon
at Sawgrass Lake Park in St. Pe-
tersburg, it's hard not to notice the
woman with the telephoto lens.
"I always had a camera growing
up." says Bollenbach, who takes
a moment to capture a surfacing
Anhinga, "but I was never serious
about photography until about 12
years ago."
In 12 years. Bollenbach has made
a sort of second career out of photog-
raphy, an art form she first admired
as a child.
"My grandfather was a nature
photographer." she says. "I used to
sit in his basement and look at his
pictures." And, while her own skills
may have lain dormant in the years
in between, it was ultimately a love
of nature that spurred her to use
photography as a means to satisfy
her own "need for a creative outlet "
Her semi-professional foray into
photography began eight years ago
when Bollenbach gave some of her
photos to the Tampa Bay Estuary
Program in St. Petersburg. Her eye
for Florida s natural beauty caught
their attention, and soon she was
teaching a class on nature photog-
raphy. Other classes followed at the
Weedon Island and Booker Creek
Preserves, along with exhibits of
her work and a commission from
Wildlife Rescue for a calendar.
At a recent lecture at Boyd Hill
Nature Park, Bollenbach spoke to
a packed crowd on the finer points
of nature photography. Though her
technical advice is geared toward
amateurs and professionals alike
(she notes that it's not the camera
that makes the picture, but the per-
son behind it), Bollenbach peppers
her talks with more than just tips
on lenses and lighting. As a natu-
ralist, Bollenbach says she always
likes to "add biology" to her presen-
tations, and it is this aspect of her
expertise that may prove the most
intriguing.
Cold keeps reptiles and insects
slow, so this is a great time of year
to try to get them," she noted, but

Toddlers Learn to
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,"saysMadelineMcNaughton,
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 mhabitants.
Classes begin February 14 and are

seeks public office to be a genuine
and effective candidate. Angela Lein-
er was neither. Candidates who offer
themselves up for public office and
ultimately public scrutiny have an
inherentresponsibilitytoupholdthe
public trust. It goes without saying
that that trust exists not only when
holding office but also when seek-
ing office. The citizens of Gulfport
should expect nothing less.
Angela Leiner violated that pub-
lic trust by running a half-hearted,
disingenuous campaign. She never
promoted her name publicly in the
standard methods, campaign signs,
nor did she place campaign ads. Nei-
ther did she make an effort to meet
the citizens in Ward 3 on occasions
when the opportunity arose. Many
of the people to whom I spoke had
neither heard of her nor that Mr.
Worthington had an opponent dur-
ing the election.
Unfortunately, she was unseen
and unheard from for significant
time prior to the election. Running
for public office is an agreement be-
tween the citizens and those who
seek office regardless of the out-
come. Just filing to run as a candi-
date implies a minimum amount of
responsibility on those who run. We,
the citizens, expect the candidates
to be forthright with those they wish
to represent and they should expect
it of us. Angela Leiner violated that
trust of the citizens in Ward 3 and of
Gulfport.

Thank a Gulfport
POlice Officer
Dear Editor: One of the most un-
appreciated jobs in our society is that
of the police. The citizens they serve
sometimes forget that these officers
spend hours away from their own
families, during nights, weekends
and holidays, not to mention time
spent in court and the times when
a disaster faces the community such
as a hurricane threat in order to pro-
tect the citizens of our community
and their property. They must leave
their own families in order to protect
us during those times. They will be
the first to stand between a citizen
and a violent criminal at great risk
to their own personal welfare. Not
many people go to work not knowing

had a city-planning department who
worked with the people, not against
them. Mr. Williams was a man who
was respected. He was our friend.
Now we have a City Planning de-
partment who is against the citizens
of this community to have any prop-
erty rights at all. Mr. Metcalf, a wolf
in sheep's clothing, is not a friend to
this community; he is a danger to our
rights and our dreams.
I know that he has taken a personal
position to prevent me from building
on my property. I know this as he
has personally done everything pos-
sible to make it impossible to be able
to improve my property, up to and in-
cluding telling my father that he will
never live in my home. He misinter-
prets ordinances with long standing,
just to prevent me from doing what I
have the right to do.
I believe that if he is kept in place
on my property, that he will stall us
for years. In the meantime, the city
wil110se my tax money and I will lose
my rights.
Getting a permit to improve my
property should not be an impossible
process to go through. It should be
an exciting one full of personal chal-
lenges and the excitement for our fu-
ture. Instead, it is stressful, aggra-
vating and harmful.

A Disappointing

08mpaign POffOrmance
Dear Editor: The recent election
for the Gulfport Ward 3 City Council
seat in itself was a foregone conclu-
sion. Angela Leiner, the challenger,
failed to adequately run an effective
campaign for the seat thereby ensur-
ing the incumbent, Bob Worthington,
would be reflected.
In a representative democracy such
as ours, the public hears all sides of
an argument, and then, hopefully,
will make an informed decision. The
public was essentially denied that
opportunity due to the lack of an ad-
equate campaign by Angela Leiner,
She failed to promote herself, her
views and the reasons that she could
offer herself as a viable alternative to
Mr. Worthington,
It is the duty of any citizen who

stymied at every opportunity, that
they are now renting their properties
out properties that they had hoped
to make their homes and waiting for
a better market to sell.
Do we really want to become a city
of rentals? Do you really think that
part-time tourists are the lifeblood of
this City and keep this town going?
Is this the direction that the City has
approved or is this Mr. Metcalf's own
undertaking?
I am telling you that I have never
experienced anyone so biased and
determined to.undermine a property
owner's rights as Mr. Metcalf. He
may be a sheep on the outside, but
this man is determined I believe
deliberately to prevent the property
owners of this town to live in this
town. I believe that he has his own
agenda and is attempting to fulfill it.
I say "he", because I cannot believe
that anyone on the City Council
would approve of the negative, dis-
couraging, frustrating and endless
direction that Mr. Metcalf is taking
in attempting to usurp property own-
ers' rights to the land that they are
paying for and for the taxes that we
pay to help to support this city,
The direction of the planning depart-
ment should not be "What can we do
to prevent this property owner from
fulfilling their dreams and improving
their properties," but instead, "What
can we do to help the property owner
accomplish their dreams and make
for a better attractive, wealthier city
and community?"
I have previously remodeled my
Gulfport property in 2002. My family
is larger now and I want to provide a

what they will face and if they will
ever see their families again as does
every police officer no matter what
the rank.
I hear criticism of the police for en-
forcing the laws they not only were
hired to do but have sworn to do
when they accept their oath of office.
There are many misconceptions that
because a police agency is small that
the agency must be substandard.
I have served in a small agency as
well as a large federal agency and I
can attest that being bigger does not
mean being better; each officer has
the same qualifications and duties as
any other police officer in the State
of Florida.
The citizens of Gulfport should be
thankful for the police officers that
serve them. The officers of Gulfport
are highly intelligent and serve the
citizens with great integrity, empa-
thy and courtesy. When is the last
time anyone saw an officer from a
large department take the time to in-
teract with its citizens? It's a rare oc-
casion. In Gulfport the officers inter-
act with its citizens daily. That's the
beauty of being served and protected
by a department as we, the citizens of
Gulfport, are privileged to have.
So next time you see one of our of-
ficers patrolling, wave at them to let
them know they are appreciated.

Town Shores Bocce
It's hard to believe that we are in
February and have completed 10
weeks of Bocce play. I might add that
we are so lucky to be "don here" and
not up north shoveling snow!
The first week of February was a
busy one and all games were played.
The results of the week are as follows:
GrolFax 3, Ivanhoe 0; Buckingham
2, Kenmore 1; Jamison "A" 3,
Eton 0; Embassy 2, Nottingham 1;
Manchester 2, Dover 1; Lancaster 2,
Windsor 1; Jamison "B" 2, Chatham
1; Hampton 2, Diplomat 1.
Jamison "A" retains First Place with
21 wins and 9 losses. Hampton also
retains Second Place and the teams
from Kenmore and Gro/Fax have
Third Place. The Buckingham team
is in Fourth Place.
On Friday we held a very produc-
tive meeting. The Blast will begin in
late March and continue into April.
Sign up sheets will soon appear in
your building. More information will
be coming. Mark your calendar for
the Bocce dance on April 12. To help
teams play all the players with dif-
ferent numbers of players on game
days, a list has been put up on the
bulletin board at the Bocce courts.
Also, carpeting has been laid on both
courts.
Come down and watch the excite-
ment being played Monday through
Thursday, Don't forget Thursday
games are played at 10 a.m.

and voted in the primary or on the
property tax issue, but only 34 percent
bothered to vote in the municipal elec-
tion. Interesting, to say the least.
Also interesting were the vote totals.
Judy Ryerson won Ward 1 with about
58 percent of the vote total. Rick Gil-
bert got a little more than 42 percent,
which is about what you would expect,
because he ran a pretty aggressive cam-
paign.
In Ward 3, Bob Worthington won 57
percent of the vote and Angela Leiner
won 43 percent more surprising, since
she ran hardly any campaign at all.
But the totals were so close. It's al-
most as if, when they got to the local
election page of the voting machines,
the voters voted in mass either for the
"establishment" candidates or the "op-
position" candidates. I'm sure it didn't
happen exactly that way, but it does
look, at least to my eyes, like that was
the overall trend.
So we have that interesting turn of
events to think about.
To me, these numbers reinforce some-
thing I've been thinking for quite a
while and have mentioned before:
there's a sizeable block of people in this
town who are not very happy with the
way things are going. And this block
of people is growing, or at least is not
shrinking,
Yes, I know. There are always mal-
,contents. There are always people who
don't like what's going on, who are un-
happy with their government, who vote
against. This is America, after all. But
40 percent seems like a pretty substan-
tial group of malcontents, don't you
think?
Even last year, Michele King won
reelection with only 49 percent of the
vote, while one of her opponents got 40
percent. And Mayor Yakes won reelec-
tion with only 51 percent, pretty low for
him.
So it sure looks to me like something is
going on out there. Lots of people don't
even bother to vote in our municipal
elections and, when they do, 40 percent
or more of them vote "opposition.
I'll tell you something else that's go-
ing on. I've figured out that I'm not very
good at predicting elections. My column
two weeks ago was out of touch and
just plain wrong, even before it went
to print. I'm much better at predictions
when the results have already come in,
By then, I'm a lot smarter.

TurnerViewpoint@aol.com


Been thinking about the recent
election for the last couple of
weeks, sort of basking in the af-
terglow. You know: wondering who the
winners were, the losers? What did it
all mean?
Don't have any answers nothing
definitive, anyway. Some thoughts,
though.
Like, Governor Charlie Crist sure
came out smelling like a rose, didn't he?
I'm a little bit in awe of him.
First, he goes full bore on the prop-
erty tax amendment, TV commercials,
stumping around the state, cranking
up the machinery, and, sure enough,
the measure wins and wins big. I think
I remember numbers like 64 percent,
which is nearly two-thirds, and which is
substantially more than the 60 percent
that was required. This for a proposal
that was supposedly "controversial"
and "too close to call."
And then, to top it off, he licked his fin-
ger, stuck it up into the political wind,
and decided to endorse John McCain in
Florida's Republican primary just four
days before the election. McCain wins
and Crist gets credit for helping him do
it and, I suppose, also credit for helping
him to become the Republican front-
runner and what they're now calling
the "presumptive nominee."
Can't do much better than that. What-
ever you think of Crist, you have to give
him credit for having some pretty accu-
rate political instincts.
Seeing to me that the voters were big
winners in this election, too. In spite of
all the hand wringing and controversy
and advice filling the airwaves and
newspapers and mailboxes, they did as
they pleased and got what they wanted:
a property tax cut,
And despite the best efforts of the Re-
publicans and, especially, the Demo-
crats to minimize the importance of
the Florida primary, it still carried
substantial impact. It not only gave a
boost to McCain, it knocked Rudy Giu-
liani out of the race and also, to a lesser
extent, John Edwards. And it didn't do

VIEWPOINT

Mitt Romney any favors, either.
The turnout for the election was pretty
spectacular, too, thank you very much.
I'm not positive about these numbers, but
I think I heard that about 50 percent of
registered Republicans turned out across
the state and something like 42 percent
of Democrats, despite the fact that their
primary votes didn't count. Floridians
voted anyway.
Which leads me to the biggest loser in
the election. I would have to say it was
the national Democratic Party. To penal-
ize the state for the early primary, they
decided that none of the elected delegates
would be seated at the party's upcoming
convention and now they're paying the
price. It turns out that the race between
Hillary Clinton and Ba rack Obama is
so close, the party is very likely going to
need those votes at the convention. What
to do? They haven't figured it out yet. But
in the meantime, they're looking pretty
foolish.
But then, the Republicans aren't looking
so good, either. It turns out they're end-
ing up with a candidate who a lot of them
don't really want, especially the more
conservative Republicans. Can't they all
just get along? Apparently not.
But, hey, we've got our own problems
right here in Gulfport.
There were some surprises in our elec-
tion results here, too, not to mention a
surprisingly large turnout. According to
the Pinellas County Supervisor of Elec-
tions website, the turnout was 44.85
percent of registered voters in Gulfport.
Wow! That's astounding. Often, for mu-
nicipal elections, our turnout is in the low
20's and, sometimes, in the high teens.
And we now have more than 10,000 reg-
istered voters in this town (also taken
from the website, with the assistance of
City Clerk Donna Spano).
Which would mean'that about 4,500
people in Gulfport voted. But according
to the election totals, only about 3,400
of them voted in the Gulfport election.
Is that possible? I guess so it's the only
answer I can make out of the numbers:
45 percent of the people went to the polls

phone number, but he wasn't ready
to call it yet. He never called her if he
could help it, not even when she was
very late. That wasn't part of the game
they played, the daily dance they had
perfected. Calling her would be like
crying "uncle."
Rather than pace the floor, Jeremy
bought a newspaper and settled in his
usual spot on the bench out front to
read it. It had been a very quiet morn-
ing so far, no customers and not much
activity on the street. Don Burnard
hadn't even shown up, yet, for his usu-
al cup of coffee.
Just as well, Jeremy thought. He re-
ally didn't feel like dealing with him
.
today, especially given his personality
change of late. Burnard had always
been odd but, lately, he'd been almost
unbearable. I don't need that, Jeremy
thought, unconsciously shaking his
head. Not toda
As if on cue, Burnard came around
the corner from Shore Boulevard and
.
headed up the sidewalk toward Jere-
my. Jeremy saw him coming, inwardly
.
cringed, and turned his attention.back
.
to his newspaper,
.
'Good morning," Burnard said, com-
ing to a stop about six feet from Jer-
emy. He was holding a Styrofoam cup
in his hand.
Good morning," Jeremy answered,
glancing up. "There's added. "Help yourself.
Burnard didn't move. Instead, he
looked up at the sky. "Looks like there
.
might be some rain coming," he said
after a pause. "A front or something.
a
'Yeah," Jeremy agreed. "That's what
they say.
Burnard nodded, then opened the
door and walked into the shop.
Hm-m-m, Jeremy thought. Who's
this? The old Don Burnard?
Burnard emerged from the shop,
stopped, and took a sip from his cof-
fee cup.
Where's Lydia?" he asked, after see-
ing that Jeremy wasn't going to say
anything.
, Not here, yet," Jeremy offered.
'Oh," Burnard said. "Well, she'll show
up, I'm sure. You know Lydia. She's
always late.

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 entend-
ed. Next week: Chapter 12 continues
and so does the waiting.


21 It was warm for a Febru-
ary morning, in the low
70's, but the air was moist
and heavy and the sky, overcast and
gray and threatening worse. Jeremy
.
welcomed the weather; it matched his
mood exactly.
The week had gone from bad to
worse and, as far as he could tell, the
prospects weren't much better. First,
he had discovered the gold cross and
chain that had belonged to Jackie Ray,
.
the last victim of the so-called "alliga-
tor." Then he had called the police and
they had descended on the place, ac-
.
causing him of withholding evidence,
practically tearing the place apart
looking for more, and demanding all
kinds of information and shop records
from him. And then, if that weren't
enough, Lydia had hinted said out-
right, actually that she might not be
coming back. That it was just all too
much for her and that she didn't feel
safe here, at the shop, anymore.
Jeremy could understand; he didn't
know what to think-anymore, either.
.
Somehow, he and his shop were inex-
plicably being drawn into this ever-
expanding and increasingly terrifying
case and he didn't understand why.
And he couldn't help thinking: Why
me? What have Idone to deserve this?
Haven't I been through enough? Didn't
one murder case in my life already fill
my quota?
Which, of course, brought up more
thoughts of Matt as if he didn't al-
ready think about Matt and his death
too much. Which in turn, of course,
darkened his mood even more, made
him even more depressed.
So he wasn't exactly in the best of all
possible moods as he sqt about open-
ing the shop for the day. He plodded
through his usual shop-opening ritual,
putting on some coffee, straightening
up the counter and the displays, drag-
ging some merchandise out onto the
sidewalk all the while wondering
whether Lydia was going to show up
today or not.

Gobber February 14 February 20, 2008


Kevin Osterholt, on the other hand,
was expecting a quiet day an easy
day, even. So he was preparing to
.
spend his morning out on Clam Bay-
ou, in a canoe, pulling trash out of the
mangroves.
It was something he did frequently.
.
a couple of times a week. And when
.
he wasn't out in the bayou himself, he
was renting his canoes to people and
providing them with trash bags so they
could do the same. Or he was leading
organized efforts to help clean up the
bayou, or he was taking reporters
and photographers out into the bayou
to see the mess first hand, or he was
.
standing up at city council meetings to
talk about cleaning up the bayou.
Because Clam Bayou was his passion.
It was also his business. He owned
a small canoe-rental business called
Kevin's Kanoes, and he rented the
canoes by the hour and he launched
them into the bayou. He even had, on
.
occasion, been successful m obtam-
ing small state environmental grants
so that he could rent the canoes to
customers for free, as long as they
returned with at least one bag full of
trash they had pulled from the bayou.
But none of that mattered this morn-
ing. He had no customers until this
afternoon. He was going to spend
his morning doing what he did best -
cleaning up his beloved bayou.
*
Jeremy was beginning to get anxious.
It was normal for Lydia to be a half
hour late in the morning, routine even.
But it was now 10:45, so she was 45
minutes late. And while that wouldn't
.
worry him most mornings piss him
off, maybe, but not worry him this
morning it did,
The last thing she'd said to him, af-
ter he had pleaded his case for her to
continue working at the shop, was "I'll
think about it." That's what Jeremy
kept mulling over. Had she thought
about it? Had she decided to not come
back? If so, was she going to let him
know or just leave him hanging?
He had her phone number, her cell

Today is Valentine's Day, the

But if you're feeling a bit inad-
equate in the diamond department,
I have good news for you. You don't
even have to stop by the drug store
for a heart-shaped candy box or pick
up a gas station rose while you fill
'er up on your way home. Coz I've re-

means.

ing off his meds because we lost our
health insurance, etc. We'll be fine.
So fine that I even asked him to
ask the doctors to let him out so he
could keep a promising job interview
that week. And he asked them. Now
that's love. On his part, at least.
Yikes'
As it turned out, we were right about
the days of testing, but in this case,
seems the more they poked around,
the more they found. It's kinda like
getting your brakes checked and
the grease monkey telling you your
brakes are just fine but.
Turns out he has a problem with
his heart that they believe has been
causing his strokes all along. The
good news is that it can be fixed!
Finally a real diagnosis. The scary
news is it involves open heart sur-
gery.
I know what you're thinking. We
were thinking that too.
But the doctors are all telling us
that the surgery is necessary and
that his prognosis is very good. He'll
be even better than he was. Makes
sense.

faMy hthsnband a sI hdk about w
routine this surgery is nowadays. I
remember my uncle who jogged 10
.
nules every day 30 years ago and
had to have quadruple bypass way
back when and is fine (don't think
he jogs anymore though). We joke
about David Letterman.
We watch the educational videos
together. learn all we can about how
painful the recovery will be. We vow
to get through it. We agree. We don't
even read the consents. We know it's
risky. Tonsillectomies can be risky,
for Godssakes.
The night before the surgery we
were both a little tearful, each of
us hoping the best but a small part
kinda thinking the worst. What if
this is the last time we have togeth-
er? Shouldn't we have some sort of
conversation, tell each other all the
things we meant to say but never
said?
But we don't do that. Mostly be-
cause we wouldn't know what all
to say on such short notice, and we
were both trying to be positive and
strong and pump one another up.
Now that's love.
