Budget Workshop
Gets Heated
By Greg Stemm
Last Thursday's three and
a half hour Gulfport council
budget workshop showed the
stress' that members are under
to. deal with reduced tax revenue
and still provide the full services
that Gulfport residents have
come to enjoy.
The meeting was often heated
with council -members grilling
staff on proposed budget cuts
and individual line items. Even
the police department was on
the hot seat as council discussed
the possibility of discontinuing
the department's participation
in an accreditation process.
"I do think you are doing a good
job andthatthe police department
is excellent," said council
member Bob Worthington who
was an outspoken proponent of
discontinuing the process which
takes staff time and money.
"We're all just trying to look for
strings to pull on this budget,"

Chicken Correction
The Gabber recently reported
that the citation written to the
individual originally cited for
violating the ordinance prohibiting
chickens would be suspended
as a result of the moratorium
recently passed by city council.
Representatives from the Gulfport
police department have noted
that city council does not have
the authority to suspend citations
and the individual involved has
paid the $88 ticket. We regret any
confusion this may have caused.

Erin Dabrawsky, Gulfport: "No,
I don't think it's relevant as long as
what they do is legal. I'm moKe con-
cerned with who they get into bed
with in their public office, not their
private lives. People, the media, and
the party system itself focus too much
on the private aspect of a candidate's
life and it just serves as a distraction
from the REAL issues. I guess I'm a
typical cynical American; I'm not ter-
ribly impressed with the candidates
right now. I mean, a person- can be
a great, leader and still be a cad in
private. Does that affect their lead-
ership? Only if so much attention is
focused on their indiscretions that,
no matter how much good they might
do, the focus will STILL be on their
lack of judgment, not their political
triumphs. There are so many layers
to the economic problems with this
country; why we are at war in Iraq
AND Afghanistan and neither party
can claim to wear the heroic white
hat. They just want us to focus on
the emotional, personal and moral is-
sues, not the actual answers. When
you bring religion into the mix, it only
serves as a distraction. The American
people want to know what's REALLY
going on.

Debbie Pollard, Treasure Is-
land: "If a candidate's private life
goes. against what they are publicly
campaigning for, then that raises a
serious issue with me. But I don't
think we should poke around in their
private lives. As a young woman,
I am really apprehensive that one
of the presidential candidates says
he wants to overturn Roe V. Wade
and his VP pick seems to follow him
blindly. That issue alone will defi-
nitely impact the voting decision.
My father is a minister, a Republi-
can AND pro- Life, while I am most
definitely Pro-Choice. So the issues
are cut and dry for me. Sometimes,.
though, I just can't understand how
uninformed some people are. I think
some Hillary voters .will vote Repub-
lican just because a woman is on the
ticket. But if they did their research,
they would soon discover that the
candidate is NOTHING like Hillary;
has NO alliance with her beliefs at
all and I think some of them will still
stupidly vote for them without real-
izing that the Republican VP candi-
date is Pro-Life and very conserva-
tive. The uneducated will look at her
as an appeasement. Yet some people
won't see past the forest for the trees.
The private issues that are follow-
ing some of the candidates directly
relate to their campaign platforms.
Hopefully, the Americah people will
see through the smoke and mirrors.
They HAVE to be smarter than that,
don't they?

Tim St. John, St. Pete: "I think the
candidate's private, life should be rel-
evant but not their families. A can-
didate's conduct in their private life
could tell a lot about how they would
govern. The Republicans are trotting
out the same old package: "Guns, God,
and No Gays" and I'm not comfort-
able with anyone who brings religion
into politics. I find it very hypocritical,
especially with the Christians who
complain and throw stones, and then
find themselves embroiled in a moral
mess. No political group has the bet-
ter handle on this.... I respect people's
religions, but I don't want to see them
making laws based on their religious
beliefs."


aosn aTaiauo, txruport: i oeneve n
IS relevant because you should prac-
tice what you preach. A candidate
can't adhere to one set of standards
and then live by a second set of stan-
dards; that's just hypocritical. And a
LOT of them do it! That would affect
my vote because I think voters should
get to know all aspects of the politi-
cian's life before they vote for them.
After all, they are supposed to be rep-
resenting YOU....

Public Comment

& Council Quotes
Excerpts heard at the September 2, 2008 Gulfport city council meeting


"I am a fairly new resident of Gulfport, but I am
here because of Swing Time and the dances they
offered at the Casino. I've regularly attended the
Wednesday and Friday night dances and the New
Year's eve party. I used to come even when I didn't
live in Gulfport and I always ate downtown and
enjoyed the shops. I have brought friends and family
to town to participate in the dances. I would urge
you to renew the Swing Time contract and that the
city get out of the business of trying to stage knock
off events". Bill Willianison regarding the contract
dispute between the city of Gulfport and event producer
Swing Time. At least 18 other people spoke in support of
Swing Time and council directed staff to bring resolution
to this issue.
"I am not here about Swing Time. I am here to
express my displeasure at the council for approving
the permit for Smokin' Joe's. You have approved a
business which dumps toxic particulate matter into
the atmosphere around my house and my neighbors.
I am appalled by the lack of interest or concern this
council has shown...to me, to my neighbors, to my
Ward and to the city."- Jane Ogilyie, Ward 4 resident
who lives near the Smokin' Joe's restaurant.
"Do any of you read your email? From time to time
I send emails to all of you regarding city issues that
are of concern to me. The vice mayor is the only
one who ever acknowledges or responds to these. It
would be very helpful if you just at least let me know
you received the correspondence." -Jennifer Salmon,
Gulfport resident.


"Now that we've made the city safe for,chickens,
I'm wondering if we can make it unsafe for pygmy
rattlers." -Lee Stapella, Gulfport resident discussing a
property next door to her that is in foreclosure and has
become overgrown and infested with rattle snakes.
"Accepting this Swiftmud grant may have
unintended consequences. Remember that we paid
taxes and that is our money, it's not free. The current
proposed stormwater run off project has 80 percent
of the suspended solids going into an outflow into
the marina. We are entrusting this project to the
same people who are killing Clam Bayou." -Al
Davis, Gulfport resident and city activist discussing
the acceptance of almost a half million dollars from the
Southwest Florida Water Management District to assist
in funding the 49th Street Stormwater project.
"I believe there has been a lack of leadership from
the city manager and I would urge you to consider
working toward replacing him." Emmett Walsh,
Gulfport resident during the discussion of the extended
sick leave resolution for Gulfport city manger Tom
Brobeil.
"I am speaking in favor of this resolution. I think
Tom does a great job with this city with very limited
resources. He provides good leadership...it's not
perfect, but no one is. He has given this city 5 years
of exceptional service and that hard work should be
rewarded. We need to show him some compassion.
I hope he can come back and provide even more
service to the city when he is well." Bob Newcomb,
Gulfport resident during public session on the extended
sick leave resolution for city manger Tom Brobeil.

You & THEH


rLAW

WHAT TO EXPECT
IN A DIVORCE
PROCEEDING (Part III)
A court may find it necessary to
award alimony or spousal support
in many dissolution of marriage cas-
es. As with child support, the Court
will consider two factors: one party's
need and the other's ability to pay.
Both of these factors must be proven
in Court by the requesting spouse if
the husband andwife cannot reach
an agreement on their own. Alimony
may be awarded to either a husband
or wife and, depending on the length
of the marriage and other factors,
the alimony may be permanent or
for only a short duration of time.
Under Florida law, the Court must
try to make an "equitable distribu-
tion" of the marital property and
debts. "Equitable" does not always:


* 0

* .


mean equal, although that is the
starting point. Many factors, includ-
ing child support, custody and'ali-
mony awards, can cause the Court
to make an unequal (but still equi-
table) division of property. A Court
will not generally divide the prop-
erty and debts that arise outside the
marriage.
If needed, the Court can order you
or your spouse to do, or not do, cer-
tain things. The Court may order a
party not to telephone the other, not
to come to the other's place of busi-
ness and not to interfere in the other
spouse's activities.
The Court can order one party to
pay some or all of the other party's
attorney's fees. A Court does this to
assure that both parties have equal
access to competent counsel. The
Court does not award legal fees in
every dissolution of marriage case.
The Court must first find that one
party has a greater ability to .pay
than the other.
Even if there an indication that
one party has a greater ability to
pay legal fees than the other party,
you cannot be certain the Court will
award the payment of legal fees in

have an equivalent ability to pay

fees have on marital assets, every-

should make every effort to resolve
a divorce case as economically and

On Tuesday 66 students from Boca Ciega High School traveled via limousine to the
Columbia Restaurant on the St. Petersburg Municipal Pier for lunch and presentations by
Gulfport mayor Michael Yakes and St. Petersburg mayor Rick Baker. The students all
scored a 5 (the highest) on at least one of the three sections of the FCAT test. Two students
received a 5 on all three segments. The limos were provided by Gulfcoast Limousines who
donated their services. The event was funded through a grant from the Partnership for
Achieving Student Success (PASS). "While our school got a 'D' overall on the FCAT and
there is room for improvement, there many hidden talents and examples of excellence as
demonstrated by these students," said Paula Nelson, principal. "I'm very proud of all of
them."

Joanie Clarkin -A reverse mortgage specialist on your side.
By Shelly Wilson ..=A.


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 con-
version, is a loan against your pri-
mary 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 re-
pay the loan each month in fact, the
low interest loan is not due until you
leave your home. The selling price of
your home whether sold by you or
your estate will usually 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 seniors,"
says Joanie Clarkin, a Town Shores
resident and reverse mortgage advi-
sor 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 medications
or even food," says Clarkin. "They
had taken out a regular equity loan
and they had this huge payment.
Through a reverse mortgage, we were
able to not only repay their loan, but


"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!"


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 bless-
ing reverse mortgage can be for se-
niors 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
in ten years of living at Town Shores,
she's seen what a difference reverse
Paid Advertisement-


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!"

Looking out for
Each Other
Dear Editor: I have been a realtor
in Gulfport for 25+ years. On August
,1, a typical rental eviction turned
into anything but. Upon entering
the spacious top floor waterfront
condo, I was shocked to see that all
of the condo owner's possessions
were gone! Furniture, small appli-
ances, towels, sheets, lamps, TVs -
gone! According to the law, this was
a civil matter and the owners of the
condo had to sue the tenant to get
their property back.


On August 13, the culprit was ar-
rested at the Gulfport Library and is
currently residing in the 49th Street
jail.
Due to Marge G., Bruce, Gulfport
Officer D. Madsen and Micah, we
were able to recover most of the
stolen property and it's back in the
condo. The innocent purchasers are
out their money, though. My clients
are thrilled and the suspect is facing
three felony charges.
Gulfport is too good of a town to be
infected this type of predator. Thank
heavens we look out for each other.

Free Concert at
Gulfport Methodist
Come join your Gulfport
Community neighbors and hear the
entire Ditchfield Family present a
wonderful afternoon of inspirational
and entertaining music on Sunday,
September 28 at 3 p.m. at First
United Methodist Church, 2728 53
Street S. in Gulfport. The concert
is free (a love offering will be
accepted).
The Ditchfields are truly all
members of one family (not just a
singing group that uses a family
name). They have become widely
acclaimed throughout the state
of Florida and in many other
parts of the country for their close
harmony acappella performances
and the variety of their musical
presentations. Led by parents
Stephen and Bernice, the family
includes son, Nathanael and his wife
Regina, daughter Stephanie, sons
Michael and David, and three little
grandsons, Andrew, Christopher
and Joshua.
Over the past 14 years, the Ditchfield
Family has provided countless
audiences with unforgettable
experiences singing inspirational
standards, show stoppers from
Broadway, and music of the 30s,
40s, 50s. The role models for the
Ditchfields were the famous Von
Trapp Family of "Sound of Music"
fame and it is not surprising the
Ditchfield's have often been called
the "Florida" Von Trapps.
Come join your Gulfport neighbors
and be moved by this afternoon
of inspirational and entertaining
music! For further information

Annexation Agreement Passes
Gulfport city council approved a resolution on Tuesday agreeing to participate
in the process to negotiate an .agreement dealing with annexation issues in
Pinellas County.
In 2007 the courts overturned a county ordinance which had regulated
annexation issues in Pinellas County. This ordinance als6 set forth mutually
agreed upon annexation boundaries. While certain statutes provide for
procedures in lieu of an interlocal agreement, the removal of this ordinance
also removed annexation boundaries as well. In response a subcommittee
was formed from members of the Pinellas Planning Council and the Board
of County Commissioners to draft a resolution to initiate a new annexation
process along with identifying new annexation boundaries. Resolution 08-110
was that product and was .approved by the Board of Commissioners and sent
to all Pinellas County governmental entities on July 16, 2008.
In order for Gulfport to participate in the annexation process the city
needed to adopt a resolution state their desire to take part in the negotiations.
"Otherwise we would be dependent on the County and other municipalities
that have adopted a resolution to look after their needs," said Fred Metcalf,
community development director.
One of the principal concerns for Gulfport, according to Metcalf is the
preservation of the city's annexation boundaries. The new county ordinance
proposes to retain the original boundaries in the old ordinance. The Gulfport
annexation area basically comprises the unincorporated area between South
Pasadena and Gulfport.
"This effort does not constitute a plan to begin any annexation of the
unincorporated area," said Metcalf. "It is merely to preserve the area if, at
some point in the future either the city or the property owners in that area or
both would like to consider the possibility of annexation."

W e seem to be bogged down in
a season of bad news, rang-
ing from Hurricane Gustav,
which, as I write this, is bearing down
on the Louisiana coast and poor, be-
leaguered New Orleans, to a soggy
Gecko Fest last weekend, to most of
the news on.The Gabber's front page
last week.
The good news about Gustav, if there
is such a thing, is that it downgraded
from-a category 4 or 5 storm before it
went ashore, and that it struck some-
what west -of New Orleans in a less
populated area. We'll know the full
story by the time this column reaches
print. Like everyone, I hope for the
best.
I can't think of any good news about
the death of Mayor Yakes' wife, al-
though I suppose the end of a losing
battle with cancer can at least be de-
scribed as relief.
I didn't. personally know Darlene
Yakes, can only recall speaking to
her once. But a few months ago, the
mayor told me that she enjoyed read-
ing this column and especially looked
forward to the twice-yearly pop quiz-
zes. I had that in the back of my mind
when I wrote the most recent quiz
last month and made sure to include
one question about the mayor for her.
I hope' she was able to read it.
Perhaps the most surprising news
in last week's Gabber was the an-
nouncement of a medical leave for
the city manager. I hadn't watched
the Tuesday night budget meet-
ing, nor heard the news through the
grapevine, so wasn't prepared. Yes, I
knew that Tom Brobeil had been in-
creasingly struggling with health is-
sues the last year or two; but still, it
was a shock.
And doesn't bode particularly well,
in my view, for what appears to be an
increasingly dysfunctional city gov-
ernment.
I'm not talking about the city staff.
As far as I can tell, the city continues
to hum along as usual and, except for
budget cuts and a bogged down com-


If it's not one

these. days

VIEWPOINT
By Roger Turner

munity development department,
carry on. I'm talking about the elect-
ed city government and its staff that
sits on the dais during City Council
meetings.
Perhaps I would feel less negative
about it if I hadn't watched a Pinel-
las County Commission meeting last
month. I've never been a fan of the,
county commission, don't trust them
and suspect that they're power hun-
gry. I've never even watched a county
commission meeting before mostly
because keeping up with city and na-
tional issues is about all the politics
I can take.
But I was impressed with the de-
corum at the county meeting, how
polite everyone was, respectful and
seemingly cooperative, and how
even the issues that pitted neighbor
against neighbor were handled with
few negative comments about oppo-
nents. It was 'refreshing.
I watched the meeting because our
mooring field was' on the agenda. Even
on that contentious issue, with both
proponents and opponents speaking,
there was little fireworks. The com-
mission approved the project, by the
way, unanimously the first of sev-
eral hurdles it must still cross.
Despite that victory, the impression
that has stayed with me most from
the county meeting is the decorum
perhaps because it contrasts more
and more sharply with our own coun-
cil meetings, where disagreement and
contentiousness. seem to be the rule
of the day. Matter of fact, I would be
hard pressed to pinpoint what is go-
ing well.
The city clerk's office seems to be
bogging down in absenteeism and ill-
ness. It can't even seem to catch up
on city council minutes, the most ba-
sic of its responsibilities.
The city attorney still holds his seat,
but if there is anyone on the council
who truly supports him, I'm unaware
of it.
The city manager is withdrawing,
at least temporarily, because of his


health. We'll see what that brings to
the table. There have been some ob-
vious tears in his relationship with
some council members recently.
The mayor is battling his own heath
issues, from time to time. And he
seems to be conscious of the cross
winds that are buffeting the council
recently but powerless to do anything
about them.
And then, there are the four council
members, who, if not battling health
issues of their own, seem to be locked
in a battle of egos with each other. If
you've been watching council meet-
ings at all, you've seen what I'm talk-
ing about.
But you know what? When egos take
the. forefront, I doubt very seriously
that the city will emerge the winner.
And none of this addresses the con-
tentiousness of residents, but that's
another story.
So now you know why I feel like we're
wallowing in bad news these days. I
need to go out and look for some good
news, don't I? Something positive to
write about, something upbeat. Life
is too short and the clock is running.
If you've got any good news, please
share it with me.

By the way, I took away one other
major impression from the Pinellas
County Commission meeting that
I watched. The opponents of the
Gulfport mooring field are grasping
at strawis. If, for some reason, a moor-
ing field never actually gets built, it
won't be because of the power of the
opposition's arguments.
If these folks had one or two really
compelling arguments against the
project, that would be one thing. But
instead, they seem to argue 15 or
20 or I don't know how many points
against, many of which, to me, have
little punch. In the end, they only re-
inforce the impression that. they have
only one argument: "I don't want it."
A case in point: one. woman argued
at the meeting that we cannot afford
the mooring field in these hard finan-
cial times. Then two other opponents
argued that the mooring field needs to
be surrounded by a breakwater to be
safe. Wouldn't building a breakwater
require a great deal more money? Is
there a catch-22 in there somewhere?
My head spins.

Tai Chi at the Sunshine
Senior Center
The City of St. Petersburg Sunshine
"Senior" Center, 330 Fifth. Street N.,
offers a tai chi class taught by Steve
Nixon on Friday mornings from
8:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. The ancient art
of tai chi has been proven to reduce
stress and improve balance and
overall health. It is a noncompetitive,
self-paced system of gentle physical
exercise and stretching by performing
a series of postures or movements
in a slow, graceful manner. Each
posture flows into the next without
pausing. Anyone, regardless of age
or physical ability, can practice tai
chi as it emphasizes technique over
strength. Classes are a bargain at
only $12 per month or $4 per class
with a current $10 annual Recreation
registration card. Call 893-7101 for
more information.

Budget, from front page
he noted.
"There are only a handful of times
I disagree with the city manager,".
said G. Curt Willocks, chief of police.
"And this is one of them. Police
officers are given more authority
over citizens than just about anyone
else in this country. We have the
power to detain you, and even to use
deadly force if necessary. That's why
it is so important to have the outside
oversight. We are the smallest police
department in Pinellas County to
achieve accreditation. Every three
years we have to submit all our files to
be reviewed to guarantee all standards
are being met: It's not an easy thing
to do to prove to an outsider that we
are doing things the way they are
supposed to be done. If we don't have
the oversight, we can't participate in
the accreditation process."
The discussion lead to an argument
between vice mayor Michele King and
city manager Tom Brobeil.
King had noted, as she has
repeatedly during the two previous
workshops that she favors cuts in
capital improvement projects over
cuts in personnel. Brobeil made an
off-hand statement that he thought
that the vice mayor might benefit
from some accounting classes.
King was furious. She made the city
manager repeat the comment for the
public record. Brobeil clarified the
statement by saying that he thought
the vice mayor might benefit from
more accounting training because she
kept trying to use enterprise funds to
shore up the general fund.
"I don't think you have to be an
accounting major to understand that
you don't need toys," said King.
Brobeil said he thought he had the
floor prior to being accused of insulting
the vice mayor.
"You DID insult me Tom," King
exclaimed.
At that point mayor Michael Yakes
took command of the meeting saying
that council members do have the
right to question staff, but that if
there were questions on either side
they should be directed at the chair
and not to other council members or
to staff. He pleaded for. cooperation
from both.
In the end, a list of proposed cuts
from the' police department included
cuts in travel, a possible cut of a staff
assistant, reduction in office supplies,
possible non-replacement of a police


officer position that is currently
vacant, and the possible reduction in
cost of uniforms if that position is not
filled.
Council member Judy Ryerson
challenged department heads to cut
an additional five percent across the
board from all city expenses. Council
was in consensus for. this approach
and directed her to meet with city
staff to try and achieve the cuts. "It
might be 3 percent somewhere and
7 percent somewhere else, but if we
could achieve these cuts we would
save about $364,000," said Ryerson.
Other items discussed included:
-the possibility of deferring some
repairs to water and/or sewer lines.
This was dismissed because public
works reported that many of the
lines were nearing collapse and that
public safety might be jeopardized:
The mayor suggested cutting paving
projects on city roads instead.
-a continuation of the idea of selling
the city's water and sewer system
to the- county. "But before we think
about talking to Pinellas County
about taking over the water and
sewer system we should go before


the people of Gulfport who went to
hearings dealing with home rule. We
aren't selling the pipes, we are selling
our people as customers. It might just
be an extra set of hands in the pockets
of our citizens. And, we would still be
buying our water from St. Pete," said
council member Bob Worthington.
-the largest increase in expenditure in
the marina was for fuel for resale.
-discussion of using pine versus
Brazilian hardwood or other
alternatives for redecking needs at
the marina
-a reduction in police overtime by
$20,000
-the elimination of a school crossing
guard and installation of warning
lights
-the reduction in time of a social
worker from full time to part time
-a reduction in overtime for vehicle
maintenance
-an increase transfer of $100,000 from
the water utilities fund to the general
fund
-a proposed increase in transfer of
funds from the marina to the general
fund of $30,000

Brobeil, from front page
"What we've done is offer a better
package than we do to our regular city
employees," said Jennifer Salmon.
"I am particularly surprised that
someone like council member Judy
Ryerson who has HR experience
wouldn't understand the different
kinds of contracts there are and what
setting this, precedent might mean
for the city and other employees. I
think several of the council members
who have had illness related leaves
from their own jobs felt empathy for
Mr. Brobeil, but they really should
have gone beyond that and put the
interest of the city first."
"We have no guarantees about him
returning," said Lawrence Burke. "As
a city we can't go this long without a
full time city manager."
"I can sympathize with anyone
who has physical or psychological
disorders,"' said John Freiberger.
"But Mr. Brobeil entered into a
contract with the city.. If you can't
do the job, it's time to leave. We
are giving special consideration that
would not have been given to other

loyal city employees. It's time to get
on with the business of the city. The
city manager works for the council.
The council does n6t work for the city
manager."
There was loud applause from the
crowd, a point which made Brobeil
angry.
"It was never my intention to turn
this resolution into a political issue,"
said Brobeil. "I can't believe there are
th6se in this city who would applaud
and' cheer someone's disability and
possible termination because of what
could potentially be a life threatening
illness. I withdraw the resolution."
Mayor Michael Yakes would nbt
accept the withdraw of the resolution
and instead ask each council member
for their comments.
Vice mayor Michele King proposed
that the city put Brobeil on sick leave
for the six week period under his
accrued sick and annual leave time
and then re-evaluate the situation at
that time. "I think we are premature
in this extended leave and I think
we need to carefully consider the
ramifications, if any, that might
result from its passage," said King.

Council member Bob Worthington
disagreed. "If I were still working at-
my job I would get a leave of absence.
In fact, I had to take a couple of these
because of auto accidents and illness
and my employer held my job open
for me, especially because I did a
good job for them. Tom has done a
lot for this city and I think we owe
the man some courtesy. I appreciate
the job he does, I hope he gets better
and I hope that he comes back to us
when he does."
Yakes supported the vice mayor's
position of a six week period followed
by a review. He and King voted no
on the resolution. Worthington and
council members Judy Ryerson and
Mary Stull voted yes.
Jim O'Reilly, director of the
department of leisure services will
assume the role of acting city manager
during Brobeil's absence. Pay for
the position will be the minimum
pay established for the position of
city manager in accordance with the
city's pay and classification plan.
There will -be an 8 percent increase
over that or $1.00 higher than the
highest salary paid any other city
official, whichever is higher.
"This is a 50-60 hour a week
job, according to the current city
manager," said Salmon. "Who is
going to do Mr. O'Reilly's job while
he is in that position? I don't think
he can do both effectively. If he can, I
guess that solves some of our budget
problems."
Council did not immediately respond
to that question.

you are my mother. Oh Holy Mary, Mother of
God, Queen of Heaven and Earth, I humbly
beseech you from the bottom of my heart to
secure me in my necessity (make request).
There are none that can withstand your power.
Oh Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us
who have recourse to thee. (3) times. Holy
Mother, I place this prayer in your hands. (3)
times.
Say this prayer for 3 consecutive days and
then you must publish it and it will be granted
to you. 9/4-10/2 C.T.4 E.
