First Budget
Reading Leads to
Another Workshop
By Greg Stemm
When Gulfport city council gathered
last Thursday evening (September 4)
they had three tasks before them.
First, to pass a millage rate on
First Reading and second, to pass
on First Reading a budget which
would correspond to that millage
rate. Finally, they were charged with
listening to public input to help shape
their decisions on the first two.
They accomplished all three, but not
without considerable, and sometimes
heated, discussion and a re-vote to
reverse their original decision on the
millage rate.
Public input, while light in numbers,
was spirited in its scope.
"I would hope that this council
.would consider only those issues
which are necessary to the health,
safety and well being of the citizens
of Gulfport in this budget," said John
Freiberger. See Budget, page 42
See Budget, page 42

You may have seen this one running around town. Hans
Rosenbahl's, owner of Rosenmart on Central Ave., uses his
electric car nearly every day.
It's a funky, aerodynamic, streamlined three-wheeled
electric car that would look at home in 2050. Originally
developed as the MiniEl by the Danish company El
Trans As, it was first brought onto the market in 1987.
The lightweight CityEI is currently made in Germany
by CityCom AG.
This three-wheeler looks like something out of George
Jetson's garage and is a real look at our possible future
of emission free transportation. This vehicle is 100%
electric powered.
The CityEI seats one centrally located with room for
an optional child seat behind the driver. Even getting
in the vehicle is unique. The entire top portion of the
body hinges upwards on gas struts allowing access to
the cockpit.
The driver operates car-like controls and can reach
speeds of 25-40 mph with a range of 20-100 miles
depending on the type of batteries used. *

Grant Accepted For
49th St. Drainage
Gulfport city council accepted a $496,770 grant from
the Southwest Florida Water Management District
(SWFWMD) to provide additional financial assistance
for the 49th Street Stormwater System Project at last
week's council meeting. The city has already accepted
other grants from the Environmental Protection Agency
and from Pinellas County. The total estimated cost for
the project is $2,043,540. It is scheduled for completion
in December 2010.
In October 2008, the city's public works director and
staff, will present a contract to city council for the design
and permitting of the drainage project.

49th Street Business
..On September 3, the City of
Gulfport, City of St. Petersburg and
the Gulfport Chamber of Commerce
held a 49th Street Business
Association Visioning Meeting.
Over 20 local business owners heard
presentations by Fred Metcalf,
Director of Community Development
for the City of Gulfport and Paul
Stelrecht,. Economic Development
Coordinator for the City of St.
Petersburg on past plans for the
area. The participants were then
asked to brainstorm on what things
should be done to help improve the
49th street district. The ideas that
were marked as a priority were
changing the perception of the area
which. included branding it with
a catch phrase and appearance.
Developing a business owners group
and networking meetings were also
noted as highly important.
"This meeting was to determine
where our focus should be going
forward. Both cities and the
Chamber are here to follow the lead
of the businesses and hopefully a
49th Street Business Coalition to
bring more vitality to the district,"
stated Lori Rosso, Chamber
President. A product that is already
in process is a business service
directory which is being undertaken
by the Gabber. A follow up meeting
is set for 5:30 p.m., October 8 at the
49th Street Neighborhood Center.

Container Ordinance
To Get Another Review
Gulfport city council decided
not to pass on second reading an
ordinance which establishes fees for
the automated sanitation route pick
up, but to re-evaluate proposed costs
for extra containers and continue
the discussion at the next regularly
scheduled city council meeting on
September 16.
At issue were concerns expressed
by a number of citizens that it was

not fair to offer only two options with
no additional expense required. As
currently proposed residents would
be offered one 90 gallon container or
one 40 gallon container at no extra
cost. Residents could get additional,
containers, but at a cost of $8.18 a
month for each container with a six
month minimum.
"We currently allow residents to
use up to three of their own 32 gallon
containers," said council member Bob.
Worthington. "It doesn't seem fair to

It was suggested by Michael
Yakes, mayor, that staff do a needs
assessment to, help determine an
estimated number of people along the
new automated routes would might
want two 40 gallon containers rather
than one or a 90 gallon container. The
discussion will resume at the next
council meeting.

Construction Noise
Can Begin Earlier
On first reading, Gulfport city
council passed an ordinance
amending the Construction Work
Hours Ordinance passed on February
5, 2008. The amended ordinance
allows construction to begin at 7 a.m.
Monday through Saturday rather 8
a.m. as earlier passed. Construction
may begin no earlier than 9 a.m. on
Sunday. Ending times remain the
same at 9 p.m. for Weekdays and
Saturday and.6 p.m. for Sunday.
The amendment came after a letter
of complaint was received from the
Pinellas County, School Board Real
Estate Division. They argued that the
8 a.m. start time was inconsistent with
established building practices which
require an earlier time. The existing
ordinance did not allow for continuous
pouring of concrete foundations. The
school board also noted that they
received several citations from the
Gulfport police department because
their construction, schedule required
earlier starting time to make.

Mean City Syndrome?
Dear Editor: Opinions and views
are like noses everyone has one.
Well, I am no different! I am a mem-
ber of this unique community we
call Gulfport. One resident labeled
us a community with "Mean City
Syndrome". This piqued my inter-
est so I googled it. Now I'm pretty
good at googling and researching, but
couldn't find anything on "Mean City
Syndrome", not even on the Florida
League of Cities web site. So, if noth-
ing else, we are still unique in that
we have a disease that is not yet list-
ed and that this nurse has not heard
of before the meeting!
I see two separate issues that were
combined in the meeting of Septem'-
ber 2. The item on the agenda was
listed as, and should have only dealt
with, the request for an extended
medical leave by the City Manager.
There was good discussion' on both
sides. There were examples of jobs
being saved while people were out
sick and/or disabled and how grate-
ful these employees were. There was
discussion of how these particular
employees were not ..necessarily in
key positions or management posi-
tions, thereby making replacement
not as crucial. There was discussion
of the fact that the City Manager was
recently calling for the cutting of the
budget by placing positions at the
Police Department at the top of'the
cut list. Yet this same City Manager
was requesting a prolonged medical
leave that would cost the City money,
as well as set dangerous precedence
for the City.
The second issue, as I see it, came
about as a result of the first issue. In
listening to public comment, there is
some dissatisfaction with the citizens
of this community. It appeared that
the citizens felt they had a forum to

voice their concerns. There was dis-
cussion that the citizens have felt in-
timidated and unable to voice their
concerns until this point. This meet-
ing may not have been the proper
venue, however, citizens have voiced
their concerns and votes of no confi-
dence in the leadership bf the City
My point is this Gulfport is still a
unique community. I disagree with
the statement of having "Mean City
Syndrome" (since it's not yet recog-
nized). I believe that we are a car-
ing community but that our citizens.
have some,concerns that they have
voiced in'a venue that may have had
.bad timing. However, they do have
concerns and I hope that all elected
officials are heeding this. The com-
munity is not "mean", they- are un-
happy and need to be heard and have
But then again, like the nose on my
face, this is just my opinion!

Shame on You
Dear Editor: In a shameful dis-
play of political maneuvering at the
September 2nd city council meeting,
a group of people attempted to use
the city manger's severe health chal-
lenges as a means to permanently re-
move him from his position and leave
him without medical coverage. The
group clapped, jeered, and shouted
rude comments to the Council in a
frightful demonstration of merci-
less political fervor. The city man-
ager was pressured to explain his life
threatening illness and his doctor's
recommendation that he take ex-
tended medical leave.
It was chilling to witness the lynch
mob mentality of fellow citizens bent

upon public humiliation and harm
to the City Manager witnessed by
his wife, the television audience and
'the out-of-town "Swing Time" dance
group who attended to address use of
the Casino. The only bright spot was
the moral courage shown by the ma-
jority of Council who managed to do
the right thing.
I have disagreed with Mr. Brobeil
on numerous occasions, sometimes
quite passionately. Regardless, I
have always known him to be ethi-
cal and totally dedicated to the best
interests of the City of Gulfport as
determined by City Council. I respect
him for that, despite our differences.
Lively debate' over issues, position,
policy and political accountability is a
vital part of our democracy. Personal
attacks and attempts to destroy fel-
low citizens' lives are inappropriate,
counter-productive and should be be-
neath the citizens of Gulfport. At the
end of the day neighbors should be
able to agree to disagree and main-
tain respect and civility, if not friend-
I wish Mr. Brobeil and his family
the best.

Betsy Jackels, Gulfport: "I've been to about five games; the Rays used to have a stu-
dent night and tickets were $5.00 AND we had a discount on beer. Now the prices have
gone up and it makes it really hard on a student budget to go out there. They still have
a student discount, but getting. tickets is much harder now that the team is playing
S so well. I used to have a girlfriend who lived about four blocks from the Trop; and we
would all pile in a car and park at her place for free and just walk there. But we won't
pay for parking and I don't feel safe parking on the street in that area. Also, the team
Sy had been out of town a lot. I also heard that the reason the ticket prices have gone up
is that.the prices charged are based on the team's performance and that's how they pay
S for the stadium and improvements. Most of my friends agree, too, that driving from the
i' stadium after partying at a game is just not a good thing to do. I think that most people
are just saving their money staying home and watching the game in their living room."

Jon Crego, Flanagan, Illinois, Stetson law student: "First of all, the owners are not
really spending a lot of money on this team; they have one of the lowest payrolls in all of
baseball. But I actually have no. clue why people aren't going to the games. I've been to at .
least 15 games and I don't think it's cost-prohibitive. You can get a beach seat for $9.00 -
and then pretty much sit wherever you want. I go whenever I want and see a REALLY '
good baseball team. Back home that same ticket would cost me $27.00! I usually go with
friends and we can always find free parking on the street; its' there if you know where to'
look. They DID raise the price of beer; its' now $8.00 for a 24 oz beer. If you price it out,
its' about $4.00 for a bottle of beer. That's actually not TOO bad, considering its' less
expensive than most big cities. A baseball game is STILL a bargain, in my book. I just
wish people would come out and support their team. I mean, one of my friends is from
the Czech Republic and even HE goes to the games. If he can do it, why won't the locals?"

Dan Gross, Gulfport, I.T Sales Rep: "For me personally, I can't take customers to
games ariymore because my entertainment expense account was one of the first things
my company cut when the economy started going south. Entertaining our customers is
part of our job and even THEY have tightened their purse strings. A lot of them won't
even go out to the games, even with the complimentary tickets we used to get for them.
Some of them have actually complained about driving from Tampa to St. Pete for a
game because of the price of gas. We had customers in New Port Richie who don't even
S'-bother driving up here for a game anymore; the gas prices are just too high. We have
S about 20 customers scheduled to go to the Boston game; we picked that one because the
Rays are in the final run for the Pennant race. Our company has a luxury box but this
'.i: is the only time we'll use it all year. It's not the Rays' performance; it's the economic
S' impact that's keeping people away. The average fan just can't afford the high price
S of gas, tickets, food and beer. It's cheaper to stay home and watch the game on TV."

Jason and Kelly Nelson, Tierre Verde: "We both LOVE baseball and we've been to
5 games this year; and not just because they're winning either. We go to the games be-
cause we wanted to do something different for a night out, instead of the usual restau-
rant or bar scene. But it HAS become too expensive, especially for the premium games c
we like to see like the Yankees, White Sox and Boston. There are still the cheaper seats, -
but we like to get the better tickets for the better view of the game. We buy out tickets
online and of course that means going through Ticketmaster, which adds another hefty
charge onto the total. Even the Rays' website goes thru Ticketmaster so you can't escape
the charges. The Rays HAVE added "free" parking but that only applies to a car with
four people. When it's just the two of us, the parking is $10.00. So, add that to the ticket .
price, the cost of beer and food and you're looking at over $100.00 night out. That's a lot --
of money for a family, senior citizen or a student. But we look at it this way; We're from '': ''
Chicago originally, where it's muggy hot in summer and cold every other season. The Trop .. .
has the A/C and its clean and comfortable. We just really enjoy watching a game there!"

Lessons Learned
The levees weren't the only things
that fell short in 2005 with the ar-
rival, of Katrina in the Big Easy. So
did the city's evacuation plans.
By most reports, some 50,000 pets
were abandoned in .New Orleans
during the aftermath of hurricanes
Rita and Katrina. Many of them
perished, their owners forced to
choose between accepting a lift to
safety and staying behind with their
animals. Some chose to stay, gener-
ally adding to the overall casualty
A year later, Congress passed the
Pets Evacuation and Transportation.
Standards Act of 2006, requiring lo-
cal and state governments to include
pets in their evacuation plans.
The results?
As Ana Zorrilla, CEO of the Loui-
siana Society for the Prevention of
Cruelty to Animals, told National
Geographic News, this was "the first
time in history that pets have been
a priority in an evacuation."
Last weekend, as Hurricane Gustav
bullied its way through the Gulf
region toward New Orleans, thou-
sands of locals handed their pets
off to rescue workers in an effort to
beat the storm. Climate-controlled
vehicles patrolled the city 24/7, has-
tening pets and their owners out of
Gustav's path. The city's strays had
been evacuated the week before to
shelters in Baton Rouge and Dal-
las in a no-holds-barred attempt to
avoid another Katrina.
Animal rescue groups like Best
Friends Animal Society and Pasa-
do's Safe Haven, both of which ap-,
peared on the scene after Katrina
brought the Crescent City to its
knees and, between them, rescued
more than '7,000 dogs and cats, were
back last weekend, ahead of Gustav
-- this time putting into play effec-
tive measures to prevent lost pets
and loss of life.
Best Friends made 3,000 pet car-

riers available to evacuees -- one of
the rules of evacuation being that
animals of a certain size must be
crated. And in an overnight pre-
emptive strike, Pasado's moved 67
animals from a St. Bernard parish
shelter to a 600-acre farm in Folsom,
Other measures new to the Bayou
State's evacuation plan: pet own-
ers were issued wristbands and pet
collars with matching ID- numbers;
large dogs were crated and trans-
ported in refrigerated vehicles; dogs
under 15 pounds were allowed to
accompany owners on an organized
10-hour bus ride to a pet-friendly
shelter at the state fairgrounds in
Shreveport; disaster response teams
specializing in animal welfare were
available to ensure the proper care
and handling of evacuated pets.
All in all, both human and animal
evacuations went smoother. And
while much of that had to do with
more inclusive evacuation plans,
some of it had to do with a call for
better preparation on the part of pet
owners. As reported by CNN, Sam
Irwin, press secretary for the Loui-
siana Department of Agriculture
and Forestry, made clear the state's
position: "From the commissioner's
office to the state veterinarian, we
have all been preaching personal re-
sponsibility. Planning for an emer-
gency is part of being a responsible
pet owner."
We may not all live in a hurricane
region, but none of us is immune to
natural disaster, whether tornado,
flood, fire or earthquake. Pet owners
should take steps to prepare for the
care of family pets during an emer-
gency. Here are a few tips to help
ready your household:
-- Microchip your pet and attach an
ID tag with your phone number to
his collar for easy identification. .
-- Take photos of you and your
pets together for proof of ownership.
Laminate a few and keep them in
your car, wallet or emergency kit,
along with your pet's medical re-
cords. Mail copies to a friend or rela-

tive for safekeeping.
- Plug the numbers of several pet-
friendly hotels into your cell and
also keep them on a piece of paper
in your wallet. Research this now,
while you have an Internet connec-
tion or an open library. You're look-
ing for a place out of the disaster
zone and within driving distance of
-- Arrange with a friend or neigh-
bor to take care of one another's pets
if disaster strikes when one of you
is out of town. Exchange pet photos
and medical records, house keys,
and emergency contact information
today for a relaxed and prepared to-

The use of a revocable living trust
allows the beneficiaries of a trust to
receive the assets of a deceased trust
settlor without requiring formal Pro-
bate Court approval. A named suc-
cessor trustee in a trust document
has. certain responsibilities which
should be performed in the admin-
'istration of the trust. Some of the
ordinary and necessary steps which
a successor trustee should take in
lawful and proper trust administra-
tion are:
A. The trust document should
be reviewed for legal sufficiency and
interpretation as well as each trust
B. The implementation of the
substitution of the successor trustee
should be accomplished;
C. Interested persons concern-
ing the administration of the trust
should be served with the required
notices in a proper and timely fash-

D. A successor trustee has a le-
gal duty to protect, insure and man-
age trust assets and may have liabil-
ity for the improper accomplishment
of these legal duties;
F. A successor trustee has an
affirmative duty to invest trust as-
sets in accordance with the prudent
investor rule;
G. A successor trustee is respon-
sible to make any contributions due
to the personal representative of the
deceased settlor's estate in order to
pay for creditor claims, administra-
tive expenses and/lo estate taxes;
H. A successor trustee has an
obligation to inform and account to
beneficiaries of the trust in a man-
ner that is lawfully documented;
I. A successor trustee has a re-
sponsibility to make payment or
compromise any claims made by
creditors against trust assets;
J. A successor trustee is required
to identify and file all tax returns in
a timely and proper manner and is
liable to ensure that all due taxes,
are paid;
K. A successor trustee is re-
quired to obtain a nontaxable certifi-
cate if the personal representative of
the deceased settlor's estate has not
obtained the nontaxable certificate
from the State of Florida;

L. A successor trustee is re-
quired to distribute income and/or
principal to beneficiaries of the de-
ceased settlor's trust and is required
to fund any further trusts provided
for in the trust document; and
M. A successor trustee is ob-
ligated to perform all trust admin-
istration responsibilities as a fidu-
ciary and should avoid self-dealing,
prejudice or conflicts of interest. A
successor trustee has a duty of im-
partiality in the performance of obli-
gations to the trust beneficiaries.
The above is only a partial list of the
duties of a successor trustee after a
settlor of a trust passes on. Most of
the successor trustee's duties should
be accomplished with the guidance
and assistance of competent legal
by Robert J. Myers, Esq.

Join me for a tour of the park, 1600
Pasadena Avenue, on September 17
at 10 a.m. and learn about plants for
color in the fall. Anyone who has a
group can contact me to tour the park
or I will come to your location to give
a talk on a wide variety of topics.
Please come and visit the park, sit
still on a bench and watch and listen.
Many different animals visit the
park. Please remember no dogs are
allowed in this park due to the birds
feeding on the ground.

Seven month old Golder Retriever Major cools off in the doggy water fountain in Gulfport's
dog park. He has been known to lay there indefinitely and slosh his entire face around in
the water. It makes for a really wet ride home!

Gulfport Beach August
Water Quality Report
By Cathy Salustri
Each week the City of Gulfport tests the water quality in the waters off Gulfport
Beach. The City has contracted with the City of St. Petersburg for the tests.
Every month The Gabber publishes the results of those tests. If, at any time,
the tests show that the water quality poses a health risk, the City of Gulfport
will issue a Health Advisory. The City typically receives test results within a
week of taking the sample.
Currently, the City tests for two things: enterococcus and fecal coliform. Sci-
entists consider enterococcus a common bacteria found in animal and human
intestines, and, resultingly, in human and animal excrement. Federal standards
used to require agencies to measure water quality by the amount of fecal coli-
form along public beach waters but recently have replaced fecal coliform with
enterococcus as the standard. Fecal coliform also comes from the waste of warm-
blooded animals, including humans.
The City of Gulfport currently tests for both types of bacteria. Test results will
help classify Gulfport Harbor as "good", "moderate", or "poor". Enterococcus of
less than 35 parts per 100 milliliters and fecal coliform of less than 199 per 100
milliliter of saltwater indicate good water quality. For more information, con-
tact the City of Gulfport at 893-1000.

L yet's see, now. Who said that
we only seem to be getting bad
news, these days? Oh, that's
right; it was me last week.
Maybe it had something to do with
hurricane season, and, the fact that
storms were lining up across the At-
lantic like kamikaze pilots during
World War II, all of them headed in
our direction.
But the outlook is better this week.
Gustav went ashore on the western
Louisiana coast and somehow spared
New Orleans, although just barely.
Makes you wonder how well the city
will do with a more direct hit. Then
Hanna swept up the eastern seaboard
as, a minimal storm with lots of rain.
Not too bad..
* As I write this (on Monday), Ike, a
mean hurricane that looked like it
had Florida in its sights for a while, is
crossing Cuba, lengthwise, and looks
like it is headed for the western Gulf.
Not good news for that region, but a re-
lief for us. And Josephine, the next one
in line, just sort of faded away.
For Floridians, its all good news -
knock on wood.
An old guy with a cane sat down next.
to me Friday evening while I was wait-
ing for Michael, and said that Ike was
coming for us, it had our name on it,
and that it was our turn he could feel
it. I said "you may be right," thinking
"I don't want to hear this," and hoping
that I don't sound like him. At least I
didn't grab his cane and hit him with

erated rain. There were cars parked
along 28th Avenue all day, coming in
waves after each rain event, with rid-
ers emerging from the cars wearing
their rain gear. Can't keep goQd festi-
val-goers down, I guess.
Hurricane season officially ends De-
cember 1, but the real threat should
be over by, what, late October? Just in
time for the election.

history? The good news is, the conven-

tions are over and now we're in the
home stretch.
The Democratic Convention seemed
to go pretty well, ending with a nice
speech by Barack Obama. The Repub-
lican Convention got off to a bit of a
rough start but then got very excited
about Sarah Palin, John McCain's
vice presidential choice. And now, all
we have left to endure are seven plus
weeks of campaigning and advertising,
and three presidential debates and one
vice-presidential debate, and then we
vote. Piece of cake. I've had toothaches
that lasted longer.
Near the end of last week's column,
I invited readers to share some good
news with me. Surprisingly, at least to
me, many of the responses had to do
with 49th Street. That, in itself, is good
news, don't you think? The 49th Street
corridor is finally getting some of the
attention it needs and deserves.
Lori Rosso, the never-say-die presi-
dent of the Gulfport Chamber of Com-
merce, e-mailed me that the chamber
is organizing a team of volunteers to
clean up 49th Street on Saturday, Sep-
tember 20. That's a week from Satur-
day. If you'd like to participate, call the
chamber at 344-3711 or stop in at the
chamber office in the Bank of America
building. The project is part of Caref-
est 2008, an organized day of service
on which groups take on projects that
will better their community. The mot-
to is silly ("Be Caretagious") but the
cause is good.
Walter. Dill, co-owner of Pegasus
Plaza on 49th Street, tells me that the
businesses and property owners on
49th Street are in the process of start-
ing their own business association
to help promote the area. That sure
sounds like good news to me. He says
that the cooperation between Gulfport
and St. Petersburg has been a big plus,
and that we should look for nice, "al-
beit slow," changes to the area.
And several people e-mailed me about
something you've probably already
heard about, the 49th Street Fall
Blues Festival on Saturday, Septem-
ber 27 along the Tangerine Greenway.
A touch of New Orleans, right here in

Gulfport how about that? .The event
lasts from 8 in the morning until 4
p.m. and will feature live blues music
as well as food vendors, art and craft
vendors, and a flea market, and will
showcase local businesses. Sounds like
a good time, and a good time is always
good news. It's being billed as the "first
annual," by the way, and I hope it's the
first of many.
Down in another corner of Gulfport,
our intrepid Clam Bayou tour guide
Kurt Zuelsdorf reports a turn "from
tragedy to triumph." Last year,. a Rose-
ate Spoonbill died tangled in a wad of
discarded fishing line, but this year, its
surviving mate returned to the bayou
with a new mate. He also reports that
a group of six Black-Crowned Night
Herons have moved in and established
a roost in an area that was once riddled
with trash and void of any bird. activ-
ity. All good news for the bayou..
And Swiftmud reports that on August
21 and 22, it conducted a pilot program
to, remove debris from Clam Bayou;
they removed several shopping carts,
tires, concrete blocks, a mattress and
"other unidentified objects." What's
more, they're planning to come back to
the bayou on September 18 or 19 to re-
move a large trash bin that is known to
be buried in one of the main channels
of the bayou, plus any other objects
they encounter.
As far as I know, this is the first time
any official government body has ac-
tually ventured into the bayou itself
to remove the large debris that has
been blocking the natural flushing of
the bayou for so long. More power to
And finally, if I can interject a person-
al note, I have some news that may not
be cause for celebration for you, but is
certainly good news for us. Our home
addition is finished done, completed,
100 percent accomplished. There's still
the landscaping to do, which we will
take on when the weather cools a bit,
and some of the furnishings haven't
arrived yet, but the building itself is
completely done.
And the best news of all: it turned out
'very well. It's everything we hoped it
would be, maybe even more.

HerbalWise Seminars Learn How to Make Homemade Remedies for People & Pets

By Greg Stemm
G ot a headache? Sore throat?
Acid Reflux? Pets got fleas?
,G.Deserie Valloreo with Herb-
alWise wants to show you how create
your own homemade herbal remedies to
help with these common ailments and
many others.
In her own spacious, modem and
comfortable kitchen in west St. Pe-
.tersburg she hosts a series of seminars
which show participants how to create
their own infusions, decoctions, oils,
salves, and tinctures to relieve any num-
ber of ailments. She says she focuses
on the basics so that even newcomers to
the world of herbal medicine can benefit
from the program.,
"I teach people how they can save a
lot of money over buying these kinds of
medicines at a health food or alternative
medicine store," said Valloreo. "Often
people can save more than half the cost
by making these solutions themselves."
Valloreo said many people are already
familiar with the benefits associated
with herbal teas. These infusions are
created when you basically boil water,
add the herb, cover, and remove from
heat. These are .created from the leaves
and flowers of herbs. Decoctions are
basically the same, but require a longer
cooking time because roots are being
used instead of leaves. She said that
tinctures are a concentrated herbal ex-
tract that you can easily take with you
The seminars are just $60 per person
and are three hours long. Participants
also receive a workbook with all the in-
formation covered in the seminar, reci-
pes for many remedies, and resources
for more information. They will also
get to keep samples of the medicines
they create during the session.
"It's not only an interesting and infor-
mative program, you will also have the
opportunity to meet other like minded
people," said Valloreo. "Often people
who are interested in herbal medicine
also hold a number of other similar in-
terests. You can learn a lot while enjoy-
ing a friendly, laid back atmosphere."
Valloreo said she had been part of cor-
porate America for over 20 years, but
got laid off back in January. She said
she had had a dream for a long time of
running her own enterprise. In Febru-
ary she traveled more than an hour to
take a seminar similar to the ones she
now runs and it changed her life.
"I've always had an interest in herbal

remedies and more natural health care
solutions," said Valloreo. "I also am a
gardener and grow my own herbs. It
seemed like a natural combination to
pair these interests with my desire to
have my own business."
She is currently enrolled in a profes-
sional herbalist program at the Acupunc-
ture and Herbal Therapy Center on Cen-
tral Avenue in St. Petersburg. She notes
it is an intensive two year program. She
is also a member of the American Herb-
alist Guild and upon completion of the
program will become listed as a regis-
tered herbalist.
The seminars are limited to just 10
people per session so there is plenty of
opportunity for questions. Valloreo
says that for now the seminars focus on
the basics and common ailments for ei-
ther people or pets. She says she hopes
to add programs in the future that are
specifically designed to assist different
groups with different needs like men,
women, seniors, etc.
Dates for upcoming seminars for Herb-

Budget, from front page
"Anything that can be put off, should
be put off."
"I watched the budget workshop
meetings on TV and then replayed
parts of them several times," said
Margarette Tobe. "While a desire
to maintain the millage rate was
evident, I didn't garner much of any
sense of fresh solutions or out of the
box thinking. When it did occur it
was generally for only one member of
the council."
In a presentation that the mayor
allowed to go over the usual allotted
three minutes Tobe went on to outline
several of her concerns including
salaries, planning, the proposal
of selling the sewer system to the
county, and some general issues.
Tobe addressed police and fire
department overtime, sanitation
workers overtime and the city's
longevity bonus, which'is a $100,000
line item in the budget.
"What is the purpose'of this bonus?"
asked Tobe. "The budget document
indicates it was established to retain
employees. However it is not tied to
performance. An employee must work
five years to participate and that's it;
So essentially as long as you 'hang on'
you can be a borderline employee or
just. an average employee and receive
2 percent or more pay per year. I
suggest that a better use of this
money is for merit increases for all
employees. Let's reward exemplary
performance. A smaller budget can
be established for service awards that
recognizes milestone anniversaries."

Jacqueline J. Dyer, VP

Prior to voting on the millage rate,
vice mayor Michele King asked about
millage rates in previous years. Last
year the rate was 3.3487. In 2006 it
was 3.87, which included a voluntary
reduction of ten percent. Mayor
Michael Yakes noted that for many
years prior to that the millage rate
had remained constant in Gulfport at
4.3 percent.
The millage rate initially proposed
to council for a. vote was 3.7566.
This represented a 1.67 decrease
in property taxes since the rollback
rate would have been 3.8 percent.
The rollback rate is millage rate
necessary to achieve the same level
of income for a city as it took in the
year before. Because of a reduction
in property values since last year
a higher rate would be necessary to
generate the same income. Council
has been discussing ways to reduce
property taxes in the last three budget
workshops which requires significant
cuts in budget expenditures.
Before the vote the mayor suggested
a millage rate of 3.60 percent, with a
resulting drop in property taxes of 5.79
percent and council passed that rate
unanimously. That caused a problem
however, which took a member of the
audience to identify for council.
"It seems to me that you are now
. going to have to cut about three times
the amount you had proposed in the
budget which is the next ordinance
you need to pass," said Jennifer
Salmon. "If that's right you will need
to cut about $139,000 from it."
The city attorney concurred,
suggesting that council needed to

either revisit their vote to cut the
millage rate to 3.6 percent or find
$139,000 in cuts right then before
the budget could be passed. Council
did not appear to be ready to find the
cuts immediately and revisited the
vote, passing a 3.7566 percent rate
by a vote of 4-1. All but vice mayor
King voted for the revision.
King said she voted against the
ordinance because she could not in
good conscience vote for a millage
rate that raised taxes, despite the
fact that the rate adopted actually
decreases property taxes by about
two percent.
Council then voted to pass the
corresponding budget of $22,892,887,
also by a vote of 4-1 with vice mayor
King casting the lone negative vote.
There was then considerable
discussion about holding another
workshop prior to the Second
Reading which will make .the budget
final. Council was in consensus that
another workshop was needed to
carefully consider a number of cuts
which have been suggested both by
that body and by members of the
The original date for the Second
Reading was set for Wednesday,
September 17. However, council
elected to make that the date of the
workshop and postpone the Second
Public Hearing and Reading to
Thursday, September 18'.
