Gulfport Officially
Opposes Gay
Marriage Ban
Gulfport City Council voted 'to
oppose Amendment Two, the "Florida
Marriage Protection" Amendment.
If passed, this amendment would
officially ban gay marriage.
"This could be a very far-reaching
amendment if it were to pass. Florida
already has a state law that says
a marriage is between a man and a
woman. This deals with civil unions
and I know there's a lot of folks
that because of economic pressures
cohabitate together and this could
take a lot pf benefits away from these
people." Bob Worthington said, adding
that Amendment Two could take away
health benefits between same-sex
couples. "We've passed some really
good resolutions in Gulfport showing
that we're a diverse community."

instead of the city. Barclay added

For the past several years Roger
wrote Turner Viewpoint, an opinion
column covering the gamut from city

In the Year 1908
In the year 1908, along the shores
of a small fishing village sat a quaint
little farm. The farmhouse stood
overlooking the water's edge with a
vast cornfield directly behind it. The
family that lived there sold their crops
at the local market on the first day of
every month. The whole town came to
rely on them for their products and
fair prices.
Towards the end of October, a
stranger came into town and warned
the family to quickly leave their home,
as it stood on sacred ground. The
family did not believe the stranger
and laughed at him. "This house
has been here for over 50 years, and
nothing has ever happened why
would something happen now?" asked
the farmer. "This land carries a curse


that will make unbelievable things
happen- it's a portal to the undead!"
said the Stranger.
The farmer and his family did not
heed the warning and failed to show
up on November 1st for the market.
The town, being worried about the
family, set out to the farm to check
on them. What they saw was horrific!
There was blood everywhere and the
bodies of the farmer, and his family,
were slaughtered and scattered'
throughout the property.
Now, every 100 years, they come
back to life just to relive that horrible
night and anyone who wanders into
the house is never seen or heard
from again! This October 31st marks'
the 200th year anniversary of that
frightful night and the house still
waits in its original location (5730,
Shore Blvd. So.) for its next victims.

1 7 M7 a-7aS,














Rob Keller, Gulfport: "I think that the debate format puts the candidate more on
the spot than a talk show. Talk shows, especially late night talk shows, don't seem to
get all that serious usually. They're comedy, after all and I don't think the host is very
interested in getting into the serious drama and hard truths that often come out in a
campaign. Maybe if Jerry Springer got a hold of them, THEN the hard truths might
v come out. I think Katie Couric did a good job, though of tearing it up with Sarah Palin,
buit of course that was a news interview, not a talk show."






Lisel Haught, Gulfport: "I feel that when you're in a debate format, the candidates
just. say, what they're told to say. They already know the questions and they've been
prepped for them, so they speak whatever words are put into their mouths by their
handlers. I would rather see a candidate on a talk show like Letterman or Leno, where
they are unscripted and have to answer truthfully. The host usually can catch them a
little off guard and it can help show the candidate's true personality. They have to an-
swer questions off the top of their head. Most talk show hosts LIKE to catch a person "
off guard, put the guest in the hot.seat. But then people can see the real person, not just ',.
some talking head that knows the question AND the answer ahead of time." '




Bonnie Cook, Gulfport: "I think a debate performance because in a debate, you HAVE
to answer a question. On a talk show, it's all about the money. Why do you think David
Letterman was so mad that John McCain cancelled on his show? It's because John Mc-
Cain was paid to appear. But I think McCain drew back because he realized that a real
media interview with Katie Couric would do more for his political career than a talk show
... a appearance. Also that interview aired in the morning, where more people would see him
-, and hear his message. I think he was right to pull out of the Letterman interview because
S'"4 it was better for his campaign. Being a news junkie myself, I think, the debates are better
-. at defining what a candidate stands for, because they are structured. They focus on the
questions the American people want to hear the answers to, and not the personal issues
that most people don't care about. Everyone has a personal life, but that shouldn't define
them. For myself, I would rather see a candidate's professional accomplishments rather
Than the personal ones. The perception of the candidates should be about the issues, not
a personal agenda."


Gerald Rocks, Gulfport: "First, I think that a candidate's character is more defined in
a talk show format because it seems to connect more of a personality to the candidate.
Unfortunately, the American people are ultimately paying a President for his skills, not
his personality. The last two elections were obviously more about personality, NOT about
skills, leadership qualities or even the ability to speak coherently. Second, it seems that
the media has a big role in this election; they can either make or break a candidate based I
on what they (the media) say and who their heart's with. I feel these people have a huge
influence on who will win this election. I was originally a Hillary supporter and I feel she .H
was vilified by the press and the right wing. The press' job is to search for the truth. Her
appearance on Saturday Night Live made her look more like a real person, and in that ,
instance, I think it helped her campaign. But with our current President, he just comes
across as simple. His inability to speak cohesively makes great fodder for the late night
talk shows and who can blame them? The leader of the free world speaks in a vernacular
that is folksy, basic and unrefined."

By Cyndy Adams .
With October being "National
Hunger Awareness Month" and
October 25 being "Make a Difference
Day", we have decided to have a
very important bake sale on Friday
night, October 24. It will run from
5-7 p.m. during our Legion dinner
hour. Proceeds are to benefit "The
Great American Bake Sale against
Childhood Hunger in America"
which is a nation-wide program.
This program helps raise funds


"Cooked on the Brick"


from organizations in communities
across America to help provide at
risk children with nutritious meals
when they're needed most during
summer and after school. Please help
us support this very worthy cause by
either donating a baked good or by
making a donation for a baked goody
the night of the event. Just think!
Dessert with your Friday night
dinner!

Guide


By Holiday Mathis
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)., Everyone
has insecurities, most of them simi-
lar to your own. Knowing this, you
might decide to drop some unhelpful
belief about yourself and write it off
as a weakness strictly of your own
perception. There is an African Prov-
erb that states, "When there is no
enemy within, the enemies outside
cannot hurt. you."
SCORPIO ,(Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Your
unique charms and personal cha-
risma have been drawing people
your way in droves. Well, maybe not
droves, but you must admit you've
added quite a few characters to your
life lately, and you're now busy find-
ing a place for all of them. Saturday's
stars favor getting everyone together
at your place.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21).
With so many fleeting opportunities
of the "buy now" and "this offer will
end soon" variety available, you'll
find someone's open-ended invita-
tion quite refreshing. You're irresist-
ibly drawn to what feels true, like
unconditional love. You'll feel better
about the choice you made when you
weren't under pressure.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19).,
Along your travels, you have been
gathering a store of ideas and people
you admire. This is the ideal time
to create something tangible to help
you possess the qualities you desire.
A vision board, creed, fantastic diary
entry or ritual of your own making
will help you pay homage to the new
you in development.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You
feel positive about your abilities and
it shows. The confidence and ease
you demonstrate during a difficult
task will encourage others to give
you overdue props. Higher-ups re'c-
ognize your value to the company,
and loved ones afford you the small
niceties they should have been giving
all along.


PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You'll
see those who have the stellar atti-
tude and realize how you might be
thinking and acting differently. It's
not a competition, just a guidance
system. You know who you want to be
and the universe is simply showing
you fine examples. Of course, you're
unique and will succeed in your own,
dynamic way.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Ruled
by Mars, you're usually impulsive,
daring and dynamic. However, play-
ing the opposite just for a few days
will be extremely effective in getting
what you want. There's something
so compelling about you when you're
demure, unsure and coy. Loved ones
delight in the surprise of your many
different tones.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Your
heart is open and your intentions
good, though there are logistical ob-
stacles that may prevent too much
social connection from going on this
week. You have a lot of work on your
plate, and it will be hard to strike a
giving mood unless you put your live-
lihood first. Besides, your own busi-
ness will be quite fulfilling.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Your job
is to bring someone into your world,
to convince them to take on your
cause or champion your project. Let
your intuition lead in this endeavor,
and you're brilliant. You'll artfully
construct a set of expectations in
the mind of your subjects. And then
people see in you exactly what they
* expect to see.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). People
who are moving at a different pace
from the rest of the pack need your
help. The ones who are in a rush will
find that contact with you gets them
centered. And you invigorate those
who. are feeling sluggish, It feels good
to give of yourself, and there will be
unexpected payoffs for your kind-
ness.


OVE 30 LOCATINS

th Gabe is evrwee 3216965


LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You want to
be liked as much as the next person,.
but you're not about to go to extrava-
gant measures to change someone's
opinion of you. Or are you? Your cur-
rent situation is unique. A dollop of
good will would make life easier for
everyone. A big gesture from you
might be warranted. Your smooth
charm can't miss.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). There's
so much going on to distract you from
your business. In order to stay inter-
ested in you and what you are doing,
believe in the importance of your
mission, whatever it may be. And if
you don't have a mission, choose one
and stop worrying. Any mission you
'choose will be the right one for you.
This Week's Birthdays: Your
gratitude paves the way for a year of
many blessings. The next 10 weeks
see you extremely motivated and fan-
tastically lucky. Wherever possible,
apply your energy to a single pur-
pose. In November, necessity makes
you brave and your relationships
reflect this, deepening in profound
ways. There's a metaphoric bridge to
cross in February. You may never go
back, but still it's unwise to burn it.
Family receives new additions in Au-
gust. Business booms in September.

a Great Success
On Saturday, October 11, the Sons
of Italy, John Paul 1 Lodge, located at
2500 34 Street S. in St. Petersburg,
celebrated the dedication of its new
bocce courts. There were more than
80 individuals who attended the gala
event, including representatives
from the City of St. Petersburg, antd a
delegation from Lodges to the south,
as well as members and guests. The
entire festival was presided over
by the Lodge president, Anthony

Lodge Chaplin, Margaret Scarfia
offered a specialprayer for designated
patrons of each court. Then Father
Brian Miller blessed the courts and
offered a prayer for all those, living
and deceased, who "had donated
time, talent and money to make the
construction of these courts a reality.
Beautiful plaques were permanently
erected that contain the names of all
those individuals that contributed
in some way to the success of this
huge undertaking.
Advance tickets were sold at $10
each and included breakfast, and
a luncheon buffet of ribs, pasta,
sausage and peppers and salad. The
food was beautifully done and served

Lodge Banquet Room. As usual, the
food, beverages and desserts were

Holy Name Oktoberfest, a Gulfport Tradition
(.. ..-, ." A , ,


Jordan Thomas races a sparkly silver racecar at the Most Holy
Name Oktoberfest. The annual event, a fundraiser that's become a
Gulfport tradition, coincides with the return of the snowbirds. Three-
year-old Thomas (and his mom and dad) lives in Old Northeast St.
Petersburg.

Pictured right: Ed Fo!ey and his five-year-old daughter Olivia take
a whirl on the ferris wheel at this past weekend's Oktoberfest
celebration at Most Holy Name Church in Gulfport.


49th Street, from front page

very good," said Jeri Reed, one of the
group's organizers.
"This is a new concept and not
everyone knows about this association
yet, but they will," said Lori Rosso,
president of the Gulfport Chamber
of Commerce. "Some people will
still be naysayers, but there is a
renewed energy and spirit among
business owners all along the 49th
Street corridor and a lot of really
good cooperation both from the
governments of Gulfport and St.
Petersburg as well as from businesses
on both sides of the street."
In the past there have been some
issues about cooperation along 49th
Street since the east side of the
street lies within the city limits of St.
Petersburg and the west side of the
street lies within Gulfport. Owners
from both sides of the street were
present Wednesday and appeared
ready to work together.
"I am a forth generation native of
the area," said Fred Anderson, owner
of Anderson Lumber. "My family
has owned the business on the St.
Petersburg side of the street for more

34


than 100 years...59 of them in the
retail lumber business. We're setting
up this association so that we have a
voice with both governments, dispel
misconceptions about our district and
to take pride in our area."
The group passed a mission statement
which states: "The Association
seeks to unite, enhance and promote
the 49th Street South business
corridor and embedded residential
communities. Using sustainable
strategies we seek to achieve a district
regionally recognized for vibrancy,
special goods and services, safety
and entrepreneurial opportunity.
Membership is open to all as we
believe that we can accomplish
collectively that which we cannot do
individually."
Additionally, the group began to
consider "branding" of the district
with a number of suggestions offered
for a name for the new association
and/or how to identify the district
as something other than just 49th
Street South. Gulfport's community
development director Fred Metcalf
made a presentation to the group
suggesting one branding idea based
upon an historical item shared by
both sides of the street.


"In the early part of the 20th century
there was a trolley, that connected
St. Petersburg 'and Gulfport," said
Metcalf. "It ran along 18th Avenue
South in St. Petersburg, crossing
49th Street and then ran along the
Tangerine Greenway to 55th Street
and then south through Gulfport to
the waterfront. We would suggest
you consider something like the
'Trolley Market District' as a possible
branding idea."
The idea was popular among those
attending, who also offered other
ideas such as the Tangerine Greenway
Association, Roads End and Forty-
Ninth South.
Proposed annual dues in the new
association range from $100 a year
for businesses, $75 a year for an
associate membership and $25 a year
for a citizen membership.
In the coming months the group
hopes to elect officers and become an
officially incorporated association in
the state of Florida.
"The days of us being the 'ugly step
child' of both cities is over," said Reed.
"By becoming organized we .are taking
control of our own future."

Sunshine, from front page

"Do you see how much better
everything is now?" King said to
Ryerson after they adjourned. From
the audience .the only discernible
words were "leave" and "city manager,"
during which time Ryerson did not
acknowledge King.
King said "all I said to Judy is that
we're a city of acting" and said Ryerson
started the conversation by telling
King that Bob Williams was acting
Leisure Services director, correcting
a statement King made in the prior
meeting.
"Watch the sunshine, watch the
sunshine!" Worthington said as he
walked off the dais. According to state
laws about open government,, two
councilmembers may not discuss an
issue they may vote on later outside a
publicly noticed meeting.
King waved Worthington off.
"He was telling me to be careful
that I didn't break sunshine. I said
to Worthington he should look out to
his own sunshine violations. What did
I say to her? I didn't say anything I
hadn't already said in public, -on the
record. I think it's time we moved on,"
King said. "I didn't tell her how to vote.
I just responded to her comment."
"What's good for one charter officer
is good for another one," King told
Ryerson.
After the meeting Worthington
said he made the comment about the
Sunshine Law.
"I heard two city council members
talking about the, action on the city
manager," Worthington said after the
meeting.

Gabber October 16 October 22, 2008







City Clerk, from front page

"It is my understanding she has
exhausted her available leave
at this point" and would not be
eligible for leave, Driscoll explained.
Councilmembers Judy Ryerson,
Mary Stull and Bob Worthington
agreed with attorney and said the
leave should be without pay.
Yakes consulted with Driscoll and
the city's labor attorney Brian Ussery
before sending Spano the agreement.
Spano has 21 days to review and
either accept or reject the agreement;
the 21 days ends on October 22.
Waiting until the 22nd would
"provide the least possible exposure"
to the city, Driscoll said, adding "I'm
not saying there is exposure but by
providing that extra week you may
eliminate some potential issues."
On October 4 Mayor Mike Yakes
received an eight-page letter from the
Clerk, peppered with misspelling, in
which she blamed several factors on
the current situation in the Clerk's
office. Spano said "I understand that
two members of the public were in
daily on 9/22 and 9/23 questioning


my whereabouts... alleging that they
were not getting their tax dollars
worth out of me-this is a completely
FALSE statement."
Spano also blamed an e-mail she
sent to this reporter, parts of which
appeared in The Gabber's recent
Gulfport Whys; what she called "this
whole 'Donna has an attendance
problem"' issue; and four rumors
about her that she called "very
hurtful, very untrue, very viscous
and had nothing to do with my job
performance."
Spano called these things "personal
vendettas, rumors, personal attacks
and (most importantly to me) utter
wastes of tax payers' time and money"
and provided a four page typed list
of tasks she completed over the past
30 days. The list includes "fielded
40+ phone calls" about the Mayor's
wife's memorial service as well as
speaking with "Marivel at length
regarding Dominic's (the mayor's
son) paperwork."
Council appointed Elaine Barclay as*
acting City Clerk but did not specify
a length of time.
Should Spano not respond to the
Mayor's proposed agreement Gulfport


City Council will decide whether or
not. to fire her at a special meeting
this coming Tuesday.
Council will meet on October 22 at
5:30 p.m. to discuss how to handle
the Clerk's separation. According to
Human Resource Officer Jennifer
Valdes, Spano has not reported for
work since September 25.
At the' end of the meeting
councilwoman Michele King asked
council to revisit the approved leave
for the City Manager, Tom Brobeil.
Council previously approved unpaid
medical leave for Brobeil.
"I think that we've already granted
him his leave and I think that we owe
him the fact that we have granted
that and we need to stick to what we
previously, said," Worthington said.
King expressed concerns at whether
Jim O'Reilly could handle two jobs.
Bob Williams, Parks Supervisor is
filling in for O'Reilly while he fills in
for Brobeil.
"I realize that you have feelings for
.the city manager but you have to have
feelings for Gulfport first," King told
Worthington. "If you can fire the city
clerk with medical reasons then you
can do that with the city manager,"
King said after the meeting.
Yakes said that Wednesday's special
meeting would deal only with the
Clerk and asked King to wait for the
regular council meeting to discuss
the city manager.

19th Annual Fire Department Block party a huge success.
By Leigh Clifton


In celebration of National Fire Prevention Week, St.
Petersburg Fire and Rescue and the St. Pete Police held their
19th Annual Fire Departmient Block Party last Saturday in
Del Holmes Park. Over three hundred people, many of them
parents and small children from the community showed up
to see demonstrations by the fireman on kitchen and home
safety, First Aid, rescue actions and police 911 phone call
procedures. Using a house set-up, firefighters illustrated
how to escape a burning home. Making use of an old car,
St Pete firefighters also showed the spellbound crowd an
"extraction"; breaking the window glass and cutting away
the roof with the 'jaws of life'. This is'a method often used
when a crashed car is so badly mangled that the driver is
unable to get out of the car by normal means or is injured
and unable to exit the car on their own. Firefighters peeled
back the roof like a tin of sardines.
Also on hand were the St. Pete Explorers, who spoke to over
40 kids about joining their organization. Explorer members
Haylee LaCroy and Kelly Blake explained how being an
Explorer is a great way to start a career in firefighting, or
an EMT profession. Kelly, a high school graduate will begin
an EMT program at St. Pete College in January; a two year
program in which she will have hands on training on actual
ambulances. After that, she plans on going to Fire School,
a six month training period, after which she will be a fully
trained firefighter/paramedic. Haylee is still in school, but
plans to follow in Kelly's footsteps. Both credit St. Pete Fire
Captain Brian Eanes with encouragement and help with
their chosen career path.
In addition to the seriousness, there was a lot of fun for
everyone.
The Bounce House was kept very busy, as was the
playground. Balloon jumping and a dance contest with
the DJ kept everyone moving. Free hot dogs and sodas
fed everyone and all the little kids were given a gold
shield firefighter sticker and red plastic fire hat for their


St. Pete resident Erika Grimsley and her daughter Keyanna, show off
Keyanna's fire hat and honorary badge at the Fire Department Block
Party on Saturday. Keyanna, who is three, is a student at Country
Learning Academy. Mother Erika thinks the demonstrations were
very helpful and hopes that Keyanna will remember the lessons she
learned about fire safety and police 911 procedures,
participation. Everyone learned something important and
even had fun while doing it. This is the 19th year for the block
party and it was deemed another success; an opportunity for
the community to meet the police and firefighters who are
responsible for their safety on a daily basis.
"I really enjoyed it a lot," said St. Pete resident Erika
Grimsley. "I thought it was very helpful and my daughter
got to meet some of the firemen."

This N' That in South Pasadena
By Sibylle Stajich
Fire Department
During the month of September this department was called 216 times, 46
times for fire and 170 for EMS.
Equipment
Several people have been asking and wondering what all that equipment"
such as trucks, panels, etc. is doing in the median in front of Palms of Pasa-
dena Hospital. It seems that fiber optic cable will be laid where hasn't been
divulged yet, but that's what the equipment is for.
Civic Association
The Civic Association held their first meeting of the season on Wednesday,
October 8 at 1:30 p.m. in Hibiscus Hall. Agnes Stebelton led the audience in
the Pledge of Allegiance and introduced the speaker, Natalie Leggette who has
been the Supervisor of Public Works for the last 18 years. She spoke on "Go-
ing Green in Friendly Environment". Natalie emphasized that people should
be careful that garden waste doesn't go in to the Bay because the nitrogen it
contains is bad and contaminates and excess fertilizers wash off lawns and
gardens when it rains. To prevent storm water pollution, grass clippings and
leaves should be swept off sidewalks and streets and placed in a compost heap
or the trash. Landscape your-yard with trees and shrubs and ground covers
to help reduce runoff. All our parks are pretty, much filled, only the Fred Held
Park has some open spots especially for tree memorials. So far 130 have been
donated.
When getting mulch, be aware that eucalyptus mulch lasts longer. South Pas-
adena buys recycled mulch from the City of St. Petersburg which has no fun-
gus. If buying plants be sure to realize how high they will grow, their longevity
and water restrictions. Some plants thrive with reclaimed water, 'that goes
especially for plants native to this area such as bananas, roses, hibiscus and
crotons. Think also of bees and other insects which are good for your plants. If
you use gloves to apply chemicals, don't use leather but plastic ones that can
be rinsed off. Over-pruning is bad for palms. Trim only twice a year. Irrigate
only as needed. Once plants are established, use mulch and fertilizer properly.
Plant the rights plants in the right place and don't water a drowning plant.
In your kitchen use different cutting boards for different foods, wash every-
thing and remember bleach and ammonia are the best cleaners. Fiber is very
important in food. Eat a handful of nuts every day. Air out a new shower cur-
tain to get ride of the plastic odor and-it's best to buy pasta sauces or tomato
products in glass jars.
The 50/50 raffle was called and then everyone enjoyed coffee and cookies
donated by Palms of Pasadena Hospital. The next meeting is on November 12
and will be on Crime Prevention Identity Theft.
