Resident Continues to
Protest Smokin' Joe's
"Back again," Mark Gildauskas
told Gulfport City Council at Tues-
day night's meeting.
"Smoker. 1413 49th Street. Here's
the dumpster right next to it," Gil-
dauskas told Council. "The city
couldn't do anything about this.
They come down there and say they
can do anything they want..,did you
tep [Smokin Joes] they could do any-
thing they want?" he asked Acting
City Manager Jim O'Reilly.
O'Reilly said he told Smokin' Joes
they could have a children's car wash
and voter registration. Gildauskas
continued to speak to council well
past the three minute buzzer. When
he did cease, attorney Tim Driscoll
"This was a quasi judicial hear-
ing," he told Council. "You made a
decision presented on the evidence

to you on that record. Once that is
concluded it is concluded and there's
nothing the city can do but enforce
the order...I do want these folks to
understand that even if you have a
petition and you can get everybody
in the city to sign a petition to open
up," council did not have the right
to close down a restaurant, Driscoll
Gildauskas remained animated
during and after Driscoll's com-
- ments. Councilwoman Michele King
suggested that city staff examine
any violations, including those that
may have come from the Health De-
partment. At that, Gildauskas in-
terrupted King and rose as if to ap-
proach the dais.
* "Calm down. Let us settle this,"
Mike Yakes told Gildauskas. "Thank
you for sitting down."
Council directed staff to look for any
environmental violations, health or

Gulfport City Council
Tries Timer for
Citizen Comment
'Tm not necessarily a fan of it, but we
do have it here. It is a three-minute
clock," Mayor Mike Yakes explained
at the start of Tuesday evening's city
council meeting. In front of the dais
sat a new digital timer that counts
backwards from three minutes.
, When two minutes elapse and the
speaker has only one minute remain-
ing, a flashing green light will indi-
cate that. At thirty seconds a cau-
tion light flashes so the speaker can
start wrapping up comment. When
the countdown timer reaches zero, it
makes what Yakes called a "very an-
noying 'beep' buzzer."
"We have not necessarily put this
solidly in stone. Let's see how it goes,"
Yakes said.

Increases Camera
The Gulfport Municipal Marina

marina experienced a spike in crimi-

ing that Harbormaster Denis Frain
would find out how much it would
cost to double the marina's camera

By Holiday Mathis
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). The pro-
cess of getting along is different for
everyone you know and it changes
through time. What created harmo-
ny yesterday could create dissonance
today. Surrender to the process of
relationship building knowing that
it cannot be perfected, only enjoyed.
You will never stop learning to love
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21).
Thoughtfully schedule ahead. If you
don't have enough activities on the
books, you will be tempted to ob-'
sess over details that are ultimately
meaningless. Too many activities
will cause you to lose focus entirely.
You don't want life to blur by you!
Get balanced. Let your highest self
be your social secretary.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21).
You don't know what's going on next
door, though you have an inkling.
The neighbor's business holds a pe-
culiar fascination. You'll find yourself
preoccupied with such for most of the
week -- that is until your own press-
ing business takes priority. Soon
tales from the house over yonder will
be a dim dalliance.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19).
What is it about those people who get
to live their fantasies that intrigues
you so? Your thinking patterns are
ingrained to the point that it's almost
impossible to see the world any other
way than the method you've been
seeing it for years. A Scorpio may
change all of that, to the same degree
that you are open to change.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). In
the past, you've held the opinion
that having a back-up plan is for
people who don't believe enough in
the first plan. However, the times
have changed. Right now, contriving
another route might give you the se-
curity you need in order to really go
for what you want. Write it down --
that's what makes it real. I

oscope Gu

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Oh,
the personalities you'll be navigating
this week. If only people could be as
spiritually attuned as you. But that
would require them to mind their
own business, find their own inner
strength and not lean so heavily on
others, namely you. Lucky for them,
you're extraordinarily generous with
your wisdom this week.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Na-
poleon Bonaparte said, "Ability is
nothing without opportunity." The
trick is in seeing opportunity, which
is an ability in and of itself. You pos-
sess that gift so strongly now, espe-
cially Thursday through Saturday,
that you notice for the first time an
opportunity that was there all along.
Pisces helps in this matter.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Re-
lationships can be complex. Loving
one another is the simple part until
suddenly loving one another becomes
the hard part. You'll be in both phas-
es over the course of this week, but
whatever stage you're in, keep doing
the work to build. strong love. The
road evens out by Friday and your
personal life is a smooth ride.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You've
learned your social savvy the hard
way with lessons that made you
impervious to the same slights that
would knock others off their game.
After all, why take offense when
none was meant? You've learned
how to focus on the positive. You'll be
helping friends, especially the overly-
sensitive ones, do the same.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). To be
in a relationship with you is a com-
mitment to self-improvement. You're
constantly seeing how those you love
can learn and grow, and sharing
information to help them do that.
Knowing when to push and when
to back off are important this week.
There is much that people simply
must find out all on their own.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Contrary to



what some people think of you these
days, you're not entirely perfect. Of
course, you're still the one who is the
hardest on yourself. Around Wednes-
day little missteps could cause you
to obsess, which cut down on your
productivity. Really, you're doing
fine. Reward yourself to reinforce all
you're doing right.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Your
body will talk back to you this week.
Take preventative action, such as
using a headpiece on your phone to
keep you from kinking your neck. Go
easy at the gym. Stay within a gentle
physical regime. It's not the time to
force your body into new and poten-
tially awkward positions.
This Week's Iirthdays: It's a sig-
nificant year in your personal devel-
opment. The next seven weeks show
you in an extremely active stage. You
stop yearning for what you want and
start acting. Connections you make
in January are both unexpected and
fruitful. You'll. be flummoxed by the
choices before you in February, until
one career move happens and every-
thing else seems to fall into place. A
central relationship develops sweetly
in June. Providence moves on your
behalf in August.

Q. How accurate are these health screenings?
A. Our adherence to stringent protocol, highly trained sonographers, state-of-the-art ultrasound machines, and board certified
interpreting radiologists make the screenings exceedingly accurate. Physician written protocols ensure consistency and accuracy.
Q. Why should I have these tests if I have no symptoms?
A. It is important to have a screening to identify problems before symptoms arise, potentially avoiding a serious health crisis.
Unfortunately, our body's warning signs often come too late.
Q. Does my doctor do these tests as part of my routine checkup?
A. Most physicians can only prescribe ultrasound tests if you are already having symptoms, not for prevention reasons. Preven-
tion Plus is here to identify disease before a problem occurs.

Antique Road Show Comes to St. Pete Beach
by Leigh Clifton
.. :7 The Granny's Auction House' version of
the traveling Antique Road Show made a
S stop at St. Pete Beach Community Center
S--, .-. '.-; last week, drawing about 300 people
carrying all sorts of collectibles and family
heirlooms to be appraised.
Sponsored by Pass -a-Grille Community
Church, the event was a fundraiser for
the Gulf Beaches History Preservation
Society, according, to church historian
Barbara Baker. The certified appraisers;
all three from the Heritage Village store
and wrote fair market value appraisals for
l them. People brought in such items as tea
Si services, jewelry, silverware, paintings,
on t sculptures, dolls, sabers and swords;
e a.s,. some folks WERE looking to sell for cash,
S- while others were just curious and didn't
." mind paying the $5 an item appraisal
One of many sculptures is brought in for scrutiny and evaluation at the St. Pete Beach
Community Center charge.
John and Jane Gottwald, from Pass-a-
Grille, brought in a piano baby; a small porcelain sculpture that used to be a decorative ornament on pianos. They
were mildly surprised to find that it was. worth about $500 on the market today. But the pendant-mounted chinese
ornamental gambling coins didn't fare quite as well; the appraisers agreed that the gold mounting would have to be
tested as there was no stamp of gold authenticity and the coins were purchased in the 1980's, a dubious time when a
lot of fakes were produced.
Tammy C4te and her daughter Taylor, of St. Pete Beach, brought in two beautiful Marie Alexander dolls, given to
Taylor by her Grandmother. "We don't want to sell them," Tammy explained. "It would just be nice to know their worth.
Taylor wants to hold onto them!"
Gina North, from St. Pete Beach, carried in an old metal sculpture, something she had found in her great-great Aunt
Margaret's house. It was broken at the base, but appraiser Nels Gullerud told her that if it had been intact, it would be
worth between $250 and $300. As is, it was appraised at $75-$100. She didn't seem to mind though; she just wanted to
know a little more about the.piece.
The line for meeting the appraiser had'about a half hour wait, but people sat in the chairs provided and chatted about
their individual items to one another. It was a nice way to spend an afternoon.

Lori Brown, St. Pete: "I know that

their own spin on the issues. No mat-

be able to govern the way they SAY
they want to; that's what they prom-
ise on the-campaign trail. But they all
have an agenda of their own, from the
Presidential candidates all .the way
down to the local level. I'm personally
not sure if their goal is being reached,
but I'm sure it DOES influence peo-
ple's minds about certain issues, even
if the information is false. But I don't
watch TV; I read the papers for my in-

Elba Reyes, Gulfport: "No, I think
we all hate them (the TV ads)..I think
that they should concentrate on the
truth, that's what's most important to
the voters. I wish they wouldn't say
negative things about the war though,
because those soldiers are fighting
and dying for their country and I don't
think it's fair for the soldiers to hear
when a candidate says that the war is
useless or not working. Those soldiers
need out support! I don't really believe
that a lot of the ads are true, but they
probably DO influence the people that
don't know the truth or don't know
any better.

Wayne Westerfield, St. Pete:
"My honest opinion; I think people
are sick of it. But it goes both ways,
with BOTH sides slinging blame for
things that happened. I'm a builder
and my business has really been af-
fected by the economic downturn,
it's hit me hard. But I don't think the
ads will really affect anything; its
been going on in every election that
I can remember. I've never heard an
opponent compliment another oppo-
nent for anything, have you? That
Would be a first! But this has been a
very strange year for elections and it
seems like the ads are getting worse.
But I DO think that the media tends
to make it worse by constantly re-
porting on every negative thing
that's said.

fr~-~* '4

Randy Ramsey, St. Pete: "I wish
it didn't but it's pointless to say that
its doesn't influence people on some
level. I think you tend to believe the
person that you favor,, so the ads so-
lidify your allegiance. The ads also
give you the attitude of ALL politi-
cians; they all sling mud at each
other. But what has really surprised
me is that the 527 groups, like Mo-
veon.org haven't put MORE nega-
tive ads on TV, but the regular cam-
paigns are doing just fine on their
own. With someone like Palin, peo-
ple don't know much about her and
they tend to believe what she says
in her negative attack ads about
Obama. She seems to connect with
a lot of people. But I feel sorry for
whomever gets elected, because they
are going to inherit a REAL mess.

How Should My
Business Be Set Up?
Part I
Our office has had the pleasure
of advising and counseling numer-
ous clients concerning how to legally
set up a new business venture. As
a result, five (5) different choices of
the types of business entities that
may be utilized will be presented in
this article and our next article. The
five (5).basic choices which an entre-
preneur or new business owner may
wish to consider are:
A. Sole Proprietorship;
B. General Partnership;
C. Limited Partnership;
D. Corporation; and
E. "S" Corporation.
In this article, we will examine
the general legal requirements of
a sole proprietorship and a general
A. Sole Proprietorship
1. A sole proprietorship is an
unincorporated business owned by a
single individual. A sole proprietor-
ship is not a legal entity separate
from its owner.
2. The owner of a sole propri-
etorship has unlimited liability for

the debts and obligations of the busi-
ness. The owner, therefore, must
rely on personal assets or insurance
for protection against creditors.
3. For income tax purposes,
income and loss of the sole propri-
etorship passes directly to the sole
proprietor and is reported on his in-
dividual income tax return.
4. No special organizational
documents' are necessary to begin
business as a sole proprietorship.
5. The advantage of a sole
proprietorship is that it is a simple
means of beginning a business.
6. In Florida,. an individual
who engages in business has a sole
proprietorship under a fictitious
name must register the fictitious
name with the Florida Secretary of
State's office in Tallahassee, Flori-
B. General Partnership
1. A partnership is an un-
incorporated association of two or
more individuals, corporations, or
other entities engaging in business
for a profit.
2. Like a sole proprietorship,
a general partnership is not a sepa-
rate legal entity. Each partner in a
general partnership is personally li-
able for the partnership liabilities.
3. A general partnership must,
file a separate income, tax return for
federal income tax purposes. How-
ever, this is merely an informa-
tion return. Generally, all income
passes to the general partners and

is reported on their individual in-
come tax returns. Losses are also
passed through, subject to limita-
tions, which will be made stricter if
proposed changes in the tax laws are
4. Although no written docu-
mentation is necessary to form a
general partnership, normally the
rights and obligations of the various
partners (including their shares of
income, losses, and cash distributed
by the partnership) are specified in
a written partnership agreement.
The partnership agreement may
also specify the manner in which
the business is to be operated, and
may designate a. managing general
partner who serves the function of a
chief executive officer. Generally, in
the absence of contrary provisions in
the partnership agreement, the busi-
ness affairs of the partnership are
governed by a majority vote of the
5. Generally, the transfer of a
partnership interest is more difficult
than a transfer of corporate stock.
Restrictions on the transferability of
a partnership interest may be speci-
fied in the partnership agreement,
and transfers normally require the
consent of the other partners.
6. In Florida, a general part-
nership is required to file a fictitious
name registration.
7. Generally, the death, in-
sanity, or withdrawal of a general
partner from the partnership "dis-
solves" the partnership, although
the remaining partners may elect to
continue the partnership business in
a new partnership.
8. Generally, each general
partner is an agent of the partner-
ship and has the power to bind the

Don Ollek passed away Oct. 4, 2008.
As a young man he played hockey
as a goalie. He was an avid fan of
the Detroit Red Wings and the New
York Rangers. As an older man, he
played softball with the Gulfport

his son, entering many fishing tour-
naments on the East coast and Tam-
pa Bay. Don was a veteran and a

Don will be missed by everyone he

Don was a retried service man and
also a member of American Legion
Post 125. He was an avid fisherman
who owned a boat that he named
"Slap Shot". He looked forward to a
fishing tournament in Cocoa every
year that they called "Hunt for Red
October" which meant they were
fishing for the biggest Red Fish! He
always made sure that Betty Boop
and Sunny Honey always got a t-
shirt from the event! He also made
sure that he always got the quarters
and nickels from the mint for his
grandchildren. He enjoyed playing
ball when he was still able to and,
even after, he still loved to talk about
it. Don Ollek was the kind of man
with a mind of his own. He would
tell you what he did or didn't like,
which was almost everything. All in
all the man, if he liked you, had a
good heart. Also if you had a chance
to talk to him, he would tell you how
proud he was of his son, daughters
and grandchildren. God bless him
and he will be missed by everyone
who really knew him!

City Band
Thursday, October 2 was a beautiful sunny day, just perfect weather for the
grand opening of the first community band concert of the season. It was held in
the new Galatea Garden band shell at 7:30 p.m. with a good crowd of listeners
who had brought their own chairs. Mayor Dick Holmes greeted all who had
come to this "historic event" as he called it, introduced the city commission
and city staff members and Hardy Huntley.Coi-p. as well as Peter Creighton
who gave part of the money for the band shell. Mayor Holmes and his wife also
donated funds and FRDAP (Florida Recreation Development Assistance Pro-
gram) gave the grant for the band shell. The orchestra under the baton of Max
Millspaugh started the evening with the Greek Hymn, and the Star Spangled
Banner. Ron Stoll, President of the Band, announced the following seven selec-
tions and invited all to partake of the refreshments from Publix which were
offered at a table nearby. Galatea Lebus, a former resident donated $1 million
to the City to build a garden named in her honor. She specified that it should
have a band shell at one end, an atrium at the other end and play lots of Greek
music which she loved. This was all realized that evening. Ed Riesemiller, a
long time band director, was posthumously honored for -his wonderful accom-
plishments and his wife received a plaque as a memento. The evening ended
with great applause and it was announced that the next concert would be held
on November 6 at 7:30 p.m.

Our Savior-

Buys Gas for

Traffic came to a standstill on Central
Ave. Saturday morning when drivers
saw a number on a sign they hadn't
seen in QUITE a while; $2.99 for a gal-
lon of gas. Cars quickly queued up to
take advantage of the cheap gas and
soon learned that the temporary price
'drop was due to a special event spon-
sored by Our Savior Lutheran Church
on 58th Street. Pastor Paul Burtzloff
explained that the church wanted to
give something back to the commu-
nity for all of their support, so he took
up a collection from the church mem-
bers and bought 4000 gallons of gas to
sell at the reduced price.
"We wanted to let the community
know that we're here for them, espe-
cially in these tough economic times,"
he said with a soft smile. "This is the
first time we've done this sort of thing;
we wanted to show the community
God's love.'"
More than 50 church member volun-
teers pumped gas, washed windows
and greeted the customers as they
rolled into the Shell station. Kids from
the church's school manned a covered
tent, and gave away hot dogs and so-
das for donations. After almost four
hours, the volunteers had pumped all
4000 gallons of gas the church had
purchased. It was a random act of
kindness that showed a community
that their local church cared about'
them... and it was a nice way to start
a Saturday morning.

Thin May Not be All
It's Cracked Up to be
For men, weight gain and obesity
are longtime, well-known .villains,
linked to all sorts of increased health
risks from cardiovascular disease to
joint failure.
But being thin may be problematic,
too. A new Norwegian study sug-
gests that men who have low weight
in middle age and who reduce their
weight as they age increase their
chance of suffering osteoporosis and
bone fractures.
"Low weight among middle-aged
men was related to the risk of os-
teoporosis three decades later, and
the risk was significantly affected
by weight changes," said Haakon E.
Meyer of the Norwegian Institute of
Public Health. "Weight increase re-
duced the risk, whereas weight loss
increased the risk."

Meyer and colleagues revisited 1,476
men who had been part of two health
studies in the mid-1970s. They found
that the thinnest quarter of men in
the 1970s who had later lost weight
suffered almost a third of the cases
of osteoporosis that appeared later in
In contrast, there were no cases of
osteoporosis among the 25 percent
of the men in the 1970s who were
heaviest and whose weight had not
changed over the years.

People blink once every 2 to 10 sec-
onds, on average. The blink-rate is
roughly the same between genders,
but babies blink less often than
adults, albeit for. reasons unknown.
Some possible explanations: The
area of a baby's eye that's exposed
to air is smaller, relative to adults,
and so requires less lubrication. Ba-
bies spend more time asleep; fatigued
eyes blink more.

Stendhal syndrome is a psychoso-
matic illness characterized by rapid
heartbeat, dizziness, confusion and
sometimes hallucinations. The pur-
ported cause: Exposure to art, espe-
cially when the art is perceived to
be unusually beautiful or abundant,
such as when visiting a museum.
The condition is named after the
French author Stendhal (pseudonym
of Henri-Marie Beyle) who described
these symptoms after visiting Flor-
ence, Italy, in 1817.

Jesus Saves?
Not in South
Pasadena, City Says
By Cathy Salustri
When Reverend Mike Avato p
and his congregation painted
this on their new church in
South Pasadena, they wanted
it to serve as a welcome sign
for their neighbors, but the city
of South Pasadena *called it a
sign, period, and told them to
remove it or face fines.
"I put it up there because ...
I wanted to get the word out,
especially to the two buildings that face there. My feeling was since we moved
into there we hadn't been treating the people of Bethany Towers with as much'
grace and love as we should. I felt like we were not reaching out to them as we
should," Avato said. "I wanted that building to knpw that we love them and
want those in Bethany Towers to know the saving grace of Christ."
South Pasadena Director of Community Improvement Gary Brevoort said the
city received an anonymous complaint from a Bethany Towers resident.
According to Avato, who presides over the Tradewinds Associate Reform
Presbyterian Church, the city of South Pasadena "claimed that (the sign)
couldn't be there and it needed to be covered over completely so it wouldn't
show through. Their reasoning was that it was a sign that wasn't approved
and couldn't be up there. They say we were breaking a law of some sort, which
they didn't say which law it was."
Brevoort told The Gabber that no one asked about the legalities of the sign
after his code enforcement officer spoke to the church.
"City code chapter 130-82H says that under the prohibited signs is a roof
sign. Because of its zoning, its land use, they are allowed to have signs on the
walls.... they are entitled to freestanding signs... they just can't have signs
on the roof. Had that gone on the side of the building they would have had no
problem other than they would havehad to applied for and received a permit,"
Brevoort explained.
"We didn't want to be bad neighbors so we said 'well, we'll cover it over, we
don't want to be bad neighbors.' We want to be a blessing to the city, not a

Financial Aid Myths
Don't believe these college financial
aid myths.
Myth #1: You can't afford college.
The truth is most college students
require some form of financial aid.
Don't ignore college because of its
"sticker price".
Myth #2: Y6u have to be very poor,
very smart or very talented to qualify
for financial aid. Financial aid comes
in many forms such as the federal
government, the college or univer-
sity itself, a parent's employer and
others. When you take the time to
explore all the possibilities, you will
be surprised as to what services you
may receive.
Myth #3: You can get more schol-
arships by paying someone to search
for you, Scholarship scams are ev-
erywhere. Beware of any 'group or
individual that guarantees a schol-
arship if you pay a fee. Check out
www.fastweb.com or www.finaid.org
for more information.
Myth #4: My child will pay for col-
lege, so my salary doesn't matter.
Most need-based financial aid is
based on parents' income and assets.

The FAFSA form, available online
at www.fasa.ed.gov asks for infor-
mation similar to what you ned for
your. income taxes. After submitting
FAFSA, you'll receive a report that
shows how much the government ex-
pects you to pay.
Myth #5: You can wait until you get
accepted to a college before worrying
about financial aid. Most financial
aid is doled out on a first-come, first-
served basis. No one should wait to
get started. Looking for financial aid
probably isn't a teen's idea of a good
time, but it is better than graduating
from college in debt.

Sustainable Livi
By Sahwn Dell Joyce

Green Lawns are Hard
on the Environment
Lawns are big business in the United
States, with. American homeowners
spending millions of dollars and many
hours manicuring the lawn. But are
these showcase thatched patches an
environmental hazard?
Water is in short supply, yet 30 per-
cent of East Coast water usage and
60 percent of West Coast water us-
age goes to watering lawns. Ameri-
cans pour 10 times more chemicals on
their lawns than farmers use in their
fields, making lawns toxic for wildlife,
soil microorganisms and earthworms.
These chemicals leach into the ground
and pollute local water supplies. Up to
one-third of bagged household waste
going to our landfills comes from lawn
trimmings and leaves raked from
Traditional gas-powered lawn mow-
ers are responsible for .5 percent of the
nation's air pollution, according to the
Environmental Protection Agency.
One gas mower running for an -hour
emits the same amount of pollutants
as eight new cars driving 55 mph for
the same amount of time, according

to the Union of Concerned Scientists.
Even the innocuous gasoline-powered
string trimmer emits 21 times more
emissions than the typical family car,
while a gas-powered leaf blower can
emit up to 34 times more, according to
All this adds up to about 800 mil-
lion gallons of gas burned each year in
the quest for the perfect patch. What's
worse, about 17 million gallons of
that fuel doesn't quite make it into
the mower tank because it is spilled
on the ground. That's more than the
Exxon Valdez spilled in 1989, and
chances are that most homeowners
fail to clean it up. If that spilled fuel is
left to evaporate into the air, it turns
into smog-forming ozone when cooked
by heat and sunlight and seeps into
the water supply.
If your mower is powered by a'two-
cycle engine, it releases between 25
percent and 30 percent of its oil and
gas unburned into the air, along with
particulate matter, carbon dioxide
and other ingredients of smog. When
breathed, this unhealthy contributes
to cancer, and damages our hearts,
lungs, and immune systems.
/ *'

Want to lessen the environmental
impact of your lawn?
The "greenest" thing you can,do is
convert your lawn to a vegetable gar-
den and replace the turf with lovely
raised beds of edible greens.
If that is too crunchy for your taste,
how about trading in those gas guz-
zlers for the old-fashioned human-
powered kind? Reel mowers are eas-
ier to use, quiet, non-polluting and
you don't have to worry about spilling
gas. With the money you save on gas
alone, you could buy a good pair of
clippers for the bushes and a scythe
for weed whacking.
If you want to take the work out of
lawn care, consider investing in elec-
tric mowers and string trimmers.
Electric mowers range in price from
$150 to $450, and the average cost in
electricity to power the mower for one
year is about $5, with no spilled gas
and lower emissions. Propane-pow-
ered lawn,equipment is a good choice
when your lawn is the size of a golf
Use less water by catching rainwa-
ter in a barrel and attaching a spigot
to the bottom of it. You can set up a
drip irrigation system that delivers
this rainwater to your lawn. Water
your lawn early in the morning when
less water will evaporate in the sun.
Run a fountain pump from your bath-
tub out the window, and reuse your
bathwater to water your lawn.
Leave grass clippings on the lawn
instead of using chemical fertilizers.
This keeps yard waste out of landfills
and cycles the nutrients from your
lawn back into the soil. It also pro-
vides a little mulch so that your lawn
needs less watering.
Use your brain instead of herbicides.
If your lawn has dandelions, then
your soil has a high pH level. Lower
it with sulfur, or spot treat individual
dandelions or poison ivy with a shot
of vinegar.
Set up a compost pile, or buy a com-
poster for leaves and lawn clippings.
Some municipalities won't allow yard
waste in municipal landfills. Why
waste a good thing? Compost in-
Use natural fertilizers instead of
chemicals. Corn gluten will add nitro-
gen to your soil as well as kill weed
seedlings.. Use your composted yard"
waste and vegetable trimmings to
build healthy soil on your lawn.

Public Comment

& Council Quotes

Excerpts heard at the October 7, 2008
Gulfport city council meeting

"Inevitably we're going to have to have that discussion." Jim O'Reilly
to council about raising the utility rates.

"98th, what'd I say?" when audience and council corrected council-
man and president of the Gulfport Historical Society Judy Ryerson
when she said Saturday was the 89th anniversary of city's incorpo-
ration. Ryerson laughed off her slip up and promised the city a mullet toss
along with other festivities.

"Misfire." Bob Worthington when the new buzzer sounded after Lee Stu-
pela had spoken for barely a moment. The buzzer shouldn't buzz until a
full three minutes elapses.

"There's nothing that can really be done with the fact that they are
enjoying the pleasure qf their life," Councilman Bob Worthington, say-
ing his neighbors have a smoke pit in answer to Mark Gildauskas' ,com-
plaint about Smokin' Joe's.

"Her job is state mandated, not open to local interpretation," Lee
Stapella about City Clerk Donna Spano, on some sort of undefined leave.

"I would like to thank the interim city manager and my council per-
son along with the chief who negotiated a neighborhood mediation
and it went swimmingly well. I'd like to thank Michele for spear-
heading that," Lee Stapella

"She'd like a plaque on one of the benches on Clymer Park. In fact,
I know which bench," Michele King asking Council to put a plaque in
Clymer Park to honor Darlene Yakes, in part for getting the Mayor into lo-

Governor Sarah Palin visits Clearwater

By Leigh Clifton

Alaskan Governor and Vice Presi-
dential nominee Sarah Palin was the
honored guest at a Republican rally
in Clearwater on Monday in Coach-
men's Park. A crowd of more than
7000 showed up at the gates before
6:30 am to get a look at Johfi McCa-
in's running mate and hear her ideas
for the country.
A lot of Republican heavyweights
showed up to bolster the event; St.
Petersburg mayor Mike Baker, Gov-
ernor Charlie Crist, Senator Mel
Martinez and Congressman Bill
Young all took the stage in praise of
Palin's ideas on energy, foreign poli-
cy and the economy.
Congressman Young, speaking on
Palin's experience in foreign rela-
tions, told the crowd, "Sarah Palin
has known some challenges, living
in a state so close to Russia. She has
had to make some tough decisions on
the economic front as well. I think
she's a dynamic leader and will be a
great VP!"
S'Charlie Crist, spoke to the crowd
about the issue of offshore drilling,
something that McCain and Palin
are in favor of. "We need to start de-
pending on our own resources, right
here in Florida," he said. "And Sarah
Palin understands that. She lives in
a state where oil is a, huge commodity
and. she understands the importance
of using our own natural resources so
we can to break free from foreign oil
Senator Joe Lieberman, who called

himself 'a Democrat, elected as an
Independent, supporting a Republi-
can' introduced Palin to the waiting
crowd, calling her a patriot and a
leader. Palin strode onto the stage in
a white suit, amidst huge applause
and chants of "Drill, Baby. Drill."
Taking the stage, she thanked all
the supporters and even got misty
eyed at a sign someone held up in the
"Aww," she said. "You almost made
me cry with that sign, it's so nice!"
Palin wasted no time getting into
her stump and outlined the McCain
energy plan.
"To meet America's challenge for
energy, we must build more nuclear
power plants, as well as develop new
technology for wind and solar power.
God has SO richly blessed you here
in Florida; just look around at all
these sources of alternative energy!
But we DO need to drill here in Flor-
ida so that we can start depending on
ourselves for energy resources, NOT
foreign countries." Then she smiled
and told the crowd, "NOW you can
chant, drill, baby, drill!"
Calling John McCain a 'real re-
former', Palin described to the crowd
the tax relief that her administration
would propose.
"We would cut taxes for businesses,
because that's how jobs are created,
by letting the small business owner
keep more of his money in his pocket.
Then he can hire MORE people for
his business and make that business
grow. As mayor and Governor, I cut
taxes for my constituents."
Citing Obama's tax plan, she ex-
claimed, "Dog gone it! How is Obama.
gonna pay for all these programs he's
proposing? Barak Obama will RAISE
your taxes. The left wing agenda is
being touted as better, but we NEED
to put the country back on track, and
the only people who understand this
are the Republicans!" The crowd was
very enthusiastic in their response
and waved the signs, pom-poms and
noise makers that event organizers
had distributed amongst them earli-
er. The air was a sea of red and blue,
and in the risers directly behind Gov-
ernor Palin people had been given t-
shirts in red, white and blue. They
were seated to form a huge American
flag and the effect was an eye-pop-
ping contrast to Palin's white suit.

Alluding to Saturday Night Live's
Tina Fey and her impressions of the
Governor, Palin joked with the crowd,
saying that she was responsible for job
security at SNL and that she would
keep Tina Fey in business for a while.
She apologized for her impatience at
the VP debate, saying that "apparent-
ly some people were confused about
what she meant."
Palin then launched into an assess-
ment of Barak Obama's associates.
"Bill Ayers supports Barak Obama,
according to the New York Times,"
she said. "And Bill Ayers was a do-
mestic terrorist who wanted to blow
up the Pentagon and YOUR Capital
building. He also spent time in Ba-
rak Obama's living room, cooking up
ideas. I don't think the American peo-
ple want an associate of a domestic
terrorist running their country!"
Invoking Ronald Reagan, Palin
called America an 'exceptional nation,
a shining country on the hill, for all
the world to see.'
"America represents a perfect ideal,"
she sAid. "Freedom is worth fighting
for; it's what our military is fight-
ing for. From now to Election Day, it
might get. kinda rough; You'll hear a
lot of things that aren't true but there
is only ONE man in this campaign
who REALLY fought for this country,
and that's John McCain!"
Palin's folksy style and mid-west ac-
cent held the crowd's attention and af-
ter her speech, she came down among
the crowds to shake hands and sign
autographs. This was her second rally
in Florida in less than a week.

AARP has made many other chang-
es, too. The name for one. For years,
since it was founded by Ethel Andrus
-- a retired California school princi-
pal who sought better pension ben-
efits for teachers -- AARP stood for
the American Asstciation of Retired
'Persons. But "retired" denotes age
and, besides, about 25 percent of the
members weren't retired. The maga-
zine also had a name that connoted
age, "Modern Maturity." It is now
known as AARP the Magazine.
AARP introduced another market-
ing concept: versioning. Instead of
producing, one form of the magazine
for everyone, there are now several
types for various age groups. Novelli
and his branding/marketing machine
-- it is more important these days to
have a degree in marketing than in
gerontology at AARP -- realized that
one size definitely doesn't fit all.
AARP is attempting to get local
chapters more involved in ,grass-
roots lobbying for Social Security
and Medicare, even though it has a
national program known as Divided
We Fail. The national program is in
cooperation with unions and busi-
ness groups to head off those who
want to privatize Social Security;
however, AARP is trying to become
more democratic to avoid another
nightmare, such as the catastrophic
health debacle that occurred a de-
cade ago. John Rother, AARP's chief
.lobbyist, persuaded Congress to pass
a national catastrophic health bill.
Members would have paid for part of
it, based on their incomes.
Rother didn't consult with'the mem-
bers, and California mavericks raised
such a ruckus that a frightened Con-
gress rescinded the law after a few
months. A chagrined Rother took a
year's leave of absence; he returned
but now spends more time listening
to the rank and file. The members
wanted catastrophic health care,
but complained they were paying too
much for it.
The future of AARP looks bright
-- these days it is definitely not your
grandparents' AARP.

$450,000 Remains From

2007-2008 Fiscal Year
"At the end of each fiscal year there are amounts remaining. They need to be
brought forward," Jim O'Reilly explained to Gulfport city council as he asked
them to approve moving almost a half-million dollars in unused funds forward
to the current fiscal year. Staff said the city didn't use over $450,000 allocated
to repairing water lines and the "miscellaneous" stormwater fund.
"I think it's interesting that we have all this money after the budget's over,"
councilwoman Michele King said. "I think that having this come up after the
budget process was over is something we should change. I appreciate the fact
that Dan [Carpenter, the city's financial guru] and Jim have given us this year
because I've never seen one of these before.
"We never got the budget back to the millage rate that we had last year. If we
had had that we might have not raised the millage rate for the people in the
city and I think that's sad," King added.
"Weren't all these numbers in our budget that we had?" Councilman Bob
Worthington asked.
"They were included in the budget book," Carpenter told him.
"If it had been in there correctly the whole budget process would have been
different," King said, adding "it was all shown as being used and it's not,"
Michele King
The confusion stems from this, according to research into the budget process
after Tuesday night's meeting. When council sees the budget book, they see
only a proposed financial plan; city staff can't give council final figures on what
they will spend in a fiscal year until the year ends on September 30. Since
Council works on the budget before September 30 Council can't count on hav-
ing unspent money from the prior fiscal year. So council couldn't count on that
money because city staff couldn't guarantee the money would not get used.
Council unanimously approved to put the money back into the budget instead
of letting it default into the general fund.

A Greener View

Throw, Eat or
Decorate Your Pumpkin
This Halloween Season
It is the start of pumpkin season as
they are ripening in the home gar-
dens and being found at the stores.
A mature, ripe pumpkin with an un-
damaged rind and a few inches of at-
tached stem can be stored between
50 and 55 degrees until next spring.
It must not be exposed to a frost. Af-
ter harvesting, a pumpkin should be
kept at around 80 degrees for a week,
before moving it into the low humid-
ity cold storage.
Hubbard and butternut squash can
also be saved in the same manner.
On the other hand, acorn squash
don't need the 80-degree storage;
they should be kept at 15 to 50 de-
grees where they will last about two

Originally from Central America,
the skins of pumpkins were dried in
strips and woven into mats. Pump-
kins came to Europe in the 1300s
-- they were cooked by removing the
seeds and filling the insides with
milk, honey and spices before setting
them on hot coals. Grandma's pies
and pumpkin bread seem much more
civilized, tastier and easier to eat.
The top state to grow pumpkins for
fresh and canned eating is Illinois. In
fact, 90 percent of all the pumpkins
produced in the United States grow
in.10 Illinois' counties where around
500 million pounds are produced per
year. Charlie Brown's great pumpkin
must reside near Peoria, Ill., as that
is the center of this region. Other big
producers are Ohio, Pennsylvania
and California.
Pumpkins are a fruit composed of
approximately 90 percent water;

they are also high in vitamin A and
potassium. The pumpkin is versatile
as a food product: Use pumpkins in
soup, pies, breads, or. put the seeds
in snack foods. The flowers are even
edible. They used to be recommended
as a cure for freckles and snakebites.
The Irish seem to be responsible for
creating the jack-o'-lantern. They cel-
ebrated All Hallows Eve on Oct. 31
at the end of the Celtic calendar with
the, display of candles in hollowed-
out vegetables. They put hollowed-
out beets, potatoes, rutabagas and
turnips on windowsills to welcome
deceased ancestors and to warn off
evil spirits.
One such restless spirit was Stingy
Jack. He was so stingy that he was
able to trick* the devil, not once, but
several times. During his tricks, he
was able to obtain a guarantee from
the devil not to take his soul. Well,
when Jack died, God didn't allow
such an unsavory fellow into heav-
en; therefore, he was left to wander
around. The devil did give him a hot
coal to carry for light; he placed it in
a hollow turnip. He was called Jack
of the Lantern, which eventually was
shortened to jack-o'-lantern.
In Ireland, people carved scary faces
into the turnips and potatoes to scare
away Jack and his friends. In Eng-
land, they used large beets. When
the tradition made its way to the 13
Colonies, pumpkins were carved for
the occasion.
New traditions need to be created
every once in awhile. I have used a
compressed air-powered "cannon" to
propel potatoes and other similarly
* sized objects high into the air, maybe
as far away as a football field, but I
haven't been involved in the tradi-
tion of pumpkin throwing.
If you really want to see fruit fly,
you need to' go to the Pumpkin Capi-
tal of the World, Morton, Ill., on Oct.
18 and 19 for the 12th annual Punkin
Chuckin contest. Or the World
Champion Punkin Chunkin contest
is located in Lewes, Del., from Oct.
31 to Nov. 2.
A variety of machines with various
power sources compete for pride and
prizes to see who can throw a pump-
kin the farthest. So far, the top range
is about 4,200 feet; there is still plen-
ty of opportunity for someone to try
to throw the distance of a full mile.
