Town Hall Meeting Features Guest"
Speaker, Commitment to More
By Greg Stemm
Gulfport's Town Hall meeting on Tuesday evening
featured John Thomas, director of policy and public
affairs for the Florida League of Cities. It also included
a consensus among council, staff and those attending
that additional, regular town hall meetings should be
scheduled in the future to deal with a wide range of
Thomas told the gathering of about.25 residents that
the Florida legislature and other governmental bodies
often get involved in things that impinge on the ability of
locally elected leaders to act in our best interest.
"I like to say that city governments are the ones that
are closest to the people they serve" said Thomas. "You
often see these officials in the grocery store, at church,
at community events, places you don't often see officials
from state or federal governments. How many of you
remember the last thing your congress representative
voted on? But I bet you know the last thing your council
member did. The things that these elected officials'do
have more direct influence on your life."
See S. Town Hall, page 49

We join in thanking Congressman Bill Young for his devoted service to the communities we serve as Mayors.

He has always been there for us whenever we have called on him for help, just as he has always been there for the
people we represent when they have called on him for help with their individual problems whether large or small.

Congressman Young has worked hard to:
* Improve our roads
* Replace our degrading bridges
* Re-nourish our beautiful beaches
* Improve local education opportunities
* Create thousands of jobs
* Increase the availability of health care
* Secure our streets and our nation from the threats of crime and terrorism

We have found in working with Congressman Young that no cha.lklne is ever too great for him and no
problem is ever too small.

As Election Day approaches, join us in saying thank you for all that he has done for our communities, our
state, and 6ur nation.

Two Short Films at
Neighborhood Center
On Sunday, November 9 at 2 p.m.
Linda Brassell, Gulfport resident,
(a/k/a Linda Flute) and co-sponsored
by The City of Imagination and The
Longhouse, will present two short
films: "In Bed With a Mosquito" and
"Our Lady Queen of Harlem".
Linda Brassell's mother, Betty
Brassell, has spent nearly everyday
of her retirement protesting in the
streets of New York City rain or
shine, an inspired and inspiring
activist, her walker emblazoned
with "arrest Cheney."' But when
an injury sidelines her from a busy
schedule of protests and vigils, Betty
is homebound and finds herself
wondering how much longer she
will be able to take it to the streets.
"In Bed With a Mosquito" by Sarah
Frank is an intimate and moving
portrait of spirited activism and
aging in New York City.
"Our Lady Queen of Harlem," by
Trina Rodriguez is a film about
faith and rebellion. When the New
York Archdiocese locked the doors
of their beloved church, a group
of parishioners in East Harlem
took matters into their own hands.
Armed with nothing but a set of
folding chairs and photocopied bible
readings, this impassioned family
of worshipers is reclaiming its faith
and redefining the word "church".
The Neighborhood Center is
located at 1617 49 Street S. Plenty
of free parking. Refreshments will
be served. Free.

Sarah Barkley, Gulfport: I'm from Charlottesville, Virginia and I have to vote
absentee ballot so I had my Dad send me one. Unfortunately, I didn't get my ballot
mailed on time; I go to school full-time and work two. jobs as well and I just got too
busy and forgot tq mail it. But I filled it out and sent it in anyway, just to finish the
process. I voted for McCain because I like his history as a person and what he brings
to the table. He doesn't act very partisan and even though he says he's a reformer,
I think he realizes that he's very middle of the road. A big appeal to me is his POW
experience. I think it allows him to see both sides of the war issue much clearer than
Obama, because he can understand the need for it in certain circumstances. As a
.. soldier, he can directly understand how a decision he would make about the war
would impact the people who are fighting in the trenches. He knows how they feel,
first hand. He has a much better idea of how the government process works. And at
the end of the day, the big issues are the economy and the war. He has more expe-
rience than Obama on both. I know he plays the public relations card badly, but I
truly believe that he's what the country needs. I look at the Presidential choice not
as a lesser of two evils, but a better of two betters.

,Sean Romnuell, Gulfport: I'm voting for Obama because I think he's the one looking 'r ,
out for the middle class more than John McCain. Obama may not necessarily have
the experience, but McCain's running mate, Sarah Palin, is a heart-beat away from -
the Presidency and she's NOT qualified to be President. She's inexperienced and out
of touch with reality. Hillary would have been a better candidate but at this point
Obama is the necessary lesser of two evils. I have a real problem with McCain.

Ron Bugg, Gulfport: I'm voting for McCain because I feel the other gentleman is
:. I not qualified, nor is he prepared to be Commander in Chief. He's never even worn a
S Boy Scout uniform. McCain has already been involved in the executive branch AND
the military and has had the experience of being an officer and. a POW. I think it
gives him a reason to push for a victory in Iraq; McCain has seen first-hand that we
-. are winning the war and he thinks it CAN be won. Victory is the ONLY way we will
:'- jget out of Iraq.. McCain's experience will be a stronger presence among world leaders
than Obama's ever would; we need that.

Amanda Boggus, Gulfport: I voted absentee ballot for Obama. I was initially torn
about who to vote for. I mean, I really respect McCain but then I was put off his choice
of a running mate. The campaign also took a different direction as well. I thought
McCain was going to run his like he did eight years ago when he fought for campaign "
finance reform; then he seemed like he was more about what was good for the coun- p .
"try. I also thought he was a more qualified candidate at first. But I'm very interested '
in health care policy and Obama's health care initiative seems more cohesive. I don't -.
feel that McCain addresses it satisfactorily. I'm worried now that my vote might not -H. ,- of
even count; I'm not sure I put enough postage on it! I' heard that the usual 42 cent' o
postage isn't enough for the ballot. It's supposed to have 53 cents because of the big-
ger size. I haven't had anything returned' yet, so we'll see..

Clothing Swap a
Huge Success
Dear Editor: I would like to thank
fellow Gulfportonians and all others
who came from as far as Tampa to
our clothing swap and sale to ben-
efit CASA, the shelter and advocacy
group for victims of domestic violence.
With your help, localshopsl.com and
Complexions skin care packed three
cars with clothes, shoes, accessories
and other supplies for CASA. We also
raised almost $60 for CASA through
our raffle.
We had a huge turnout at the court-
yard on Beach Boulevard. For one
afternoon, the courtyard was turned
into a giant clothing shop for all ages.
Friends were calling each other, urg-
ing them to come down to Gulfport.
Neighbors were meeting each other,
helping them choose new outfits. The
community definitely came together
for this one, to help themselves, help
each other and help a great cause.
More than 50 people came to drop
off clothes, swap clothes, meet their
neighbors. We heard inspirational
stories from women who escaped
abusive relationships, as well as from
people who have worked on CASA's
hotline and shelter. We heard from
people who told us that the clothing
swap was a blessinig because it gave
them a way to get new clothes for
themselves and their children. And
we heard from people who said they

It was an awesome day for everyone,

Some Rules Need
to be Broken
Dear Editor: On October 6, the
Friendship Club's speaker, a Hospice
volunteer, told us about the wonder-
ful work that Hospice does. Most of us
already knew. She explained about
raising funds for Hospice. What she
didn't know and was surprised to
hear was that the Master Associa-
tion doesn't allow fundraisers, even
for Hospice. She knows now that a
unit owner whose husband passed
away under the care of Hospice
wanted to show her appreciation for
the care her husband received under
Hospice. She wanted to hold a dinner
dance and would have raised at least
$2,000 for Hospice. The" Masters said
"no". Who are these people? They
are the President of the Masters, the
Property Manager, the Social Direc-
tor, the Directors of all 18 buildings,
and the Council of Clubs, Bocce Bil-
liards, Shuffleboard, and the Dance
Club all said "no".
Residents know about Hospice and
there are some whose loyed ones
spent their days with Hospice.
The organization "Cyber Citizens
for Justice, Inc. of Florida" consid-
ered the refusal to allow a fundraiser
for Hospice an insult and told us to
take it to the newspapers. What bet-
ter newspaper than the Gabber?

Are Trusts Only for
the Super-Rich?
While it is true that you should
have a fair amount of assets before
you consider setting up a trust, a
trust is no longer the province of the
Simply stated, a trust is a legal
document that makes it possible for
you to put aside some of your money
and direct how it will be used upon
your death or in some form of trust,
while you're alive. A trust may also
ease your tax bite.
A trust generally offers several ad-
vantages: among them, the assets
don't have to go through probate,
which saves time and money. Ad-
ditionally, you may be able to main-
tain control over the trust assets
while you're alive and capable;. sick
and incapable; or as part of an es-
tate plan at your death.
Many individuals and families
have found that trusts offer a num-
ber of interesting financial planning
opportunities. Even where your es-
tate plan calls for all the assets of
the first-to-die spouse to pass to the
surviving spouse under the unlim-

ited marital estate tax deduction,
significant estate tax may be due on
the death of the surviving spouse.
Proper use of carefully drafted non-
marital trusts for the benefit of the
surviving spouse and/or children
may keep these assets out of the sur-
viving spouse's estate and reduce the
overall tax bite on the estate plan.
So-called "living trusts" have be-
come very popular with those inter-
ested in avoiding the expense, delay
and publicity of probate; while al-
lowing the grantor to maintain con-
trol over the trust assets during his
or her lifetime, if capable and com-
The type of trust you use depends
on your personal situation and the
advice you receive from a legal ex-
pert. Since there are many types of
trusts, only a complete evaluation of
your family's needs will determine
which trust should be used.

tfloroscope Guide

By Holiday Mathis

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Your
feelings don't lie -- although they do
have a tendency to exaggerate Tues-
day and Wednesday. There is a wide
range of choice involved in your in-
terpretation of events. If you're going
to exaggerate, do so in the direction
of levity and humor. You could bring
your whole group up with you.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21).
Busy and bustling is your natural
state of being. You certainly don't
have to search for ways to fill your
time. All you have to do is sit at home
and life will come to you. However,
it's definitely more satisfying to pro-
actively further and follow your in-
terests. Get thee to the calendar sec-
tion and make some plans!
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19).
Other people's opinions are no lon-
ger as powerful as they were a few
months ago. You're starting to real-
ize that what works for them is not
necessarily going to work for you.
Besides, some of the people you were
listening to aren't as qualified as you
once believed. And your own ideas,
are pretty stellar now.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18).
There are risks you've been too, ner-
vous to take, like making a cold call,
going to a networking event or asking
someone special to spend time with
you. This week emboldens you to go
forward and do what you've been
thinking about. The nerves don't go
completely away, but they are man-
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You're
looking for fast results. It's not that
overnight transformations don't hap-
pen; they do, though usually the ef-
fect is an illusion. Amazing changes
are most often the culmination of
hundreds of steps that occurred over
time. Instead of hoping for instant
gratification, take one step. Then
take another.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You're
through believing that you are an is-
land or that anyone else should be,
We are an interdependent species.
Humans cannot exist without mutu-
al help, and you're driven to be gen-
erous. However, what is asked of you
might not be the thing you can give.
Find the kind of help you can give,
and then give it all.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The
you-to-you competition is definitely
on. While your quest to better your
best frequently results in quality
,work, impressive accomplishments
and praise from those around you,
it can be downright exhausting. You
don't have to outdo yourself every
day. Some days you-can just be good
and that's enough.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You've
made a lot of solid life choices in the
past on the advice of a friend. There
are also a few instances where you
really wish you hadn't followed ad-
vice. Wednesday and Thursday are
particularly -good times to shun most
of what you hear -- then amp up your
trust in yourself by at least 20 per-
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Early
in the week you may have a fond-
ness foran old familiar life, you once
loved -- one that involved not quite
so many bills and perhaps someone
to prepare your meals for you. Alas,
there was a reason you left the nest,
and ultimately it was a good one. Fri-
day shows you the plus side to being
a grownup.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Maybe it's
a vacation overseas or a car you al-
ways wanted to own. Or perhaps it's
cooking classes or taekwondo. What-
ever it is, the moment is upon you.
You stop waiting for the day when
you have more money or more time
and just jump in and make it happen.
Tuesday and Wednesday are lucky
days to commit.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Most
people will eventually say what they
are thinking. Your gift this week is
that you speak your mind in real
time, and the result shakes things up
in a positive way. This weekend, your
boldness is an invitation to someone
who is equally honest and forceful.
There will be a powerful meeting'of
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). The best
feeling of the week comes when you
reach an understanding with that
person who's been difficult to read
lately. This doesn't happen because
of a conversation you have or any new
knowledge you acquire. It's a change
in you, a new level of openness and
acceptance, that brings harmony to
the relationship.
This Week's Birthdays: It's a year
of unlikely choices you never imag-
ined yourself making, and yet you
do so with great elan. The next three
weeks help you notice that your tal-
ent is bigger than you thought, and
upon the realization, your soul ex-
pands to include new passions. You're
willing to accept a person faults and
all in December, and this person will
improve with your loving attention.
Family trips' and fun are featured
in December and March. Financial
boosts come in June and September.

'Laura' is Coming'
to Gulfport
On Thursday, November 6, the
Gulfport Community Players will be
opening a 3-act play entitled, "Laura"
at the Catherine A. Hickman Theater
of Gulfport for a two week run. The
play was written by Vera Caspary and
George Sklar way back in the mid-
40s. It is a murder mystery typical of
the 1940s, complete with fedora hats,
trench coats, and assorted strange
characters as the "usual suspects".
The play is directed by Vic Carr, and
he has a very strong cast to work with,
including Suzy Devore as Laura, Eric
Dawson as the detective, Norm Nash
as Waldo, and Greg Milton, Mary
Anyan,. Ellie LeVine, Scott Bourdon,

and Charlie Alaimo. The play will run
from November 6 through November
16, with curtain times at 8 p.m. on
Thursday, Fridays, and Saturdays;
and 2 p.m. on Sundays.
If you've been on this earth for
much more than a few years, you
may remember "Laura" as a superb
movie with a great musical theme
made back in 1944. The play is the
story of a cynical detective who is
investigating the murder(?) of an
advertising director named Laura.
The more the detective delves into
Laura's life and views her portrait,
the more he becomes obsessed with
her. In fact, he falls in love with her,
a phantom. Or is she?
As the detective returns to Laura's
apartment once again in his ongoing

CASA Clothing Swap

Submitted by Bianca Cypser
More than 50 people packed our courtyard on Beach Boulevard in Gulfport for a clothing
swap/benefit for CASA. The event -- hosted by Complexions skin care and localshopsl.
com -- was truly a community effort. Dozens of people dropped off clothes, dozens more
came to swap. Many came to meet neighbors and to help friends pick out clothes. It was a
great day where we all came together, from teenagers to senior citizens. The swap was so
popular -- many told us it was their only way to update their wardrobe this year -- and we
had tons of requests for another! We're planning one for February, and will let the Gabber
know the details, of course.

Town Hall, from front page
Thomas spoke about the importance
of maintaining home rule. He noted
that there are 412 member cities in
the Florida League ranging from
small cities to' large one, all with
different needs that can only really
be understood by the local residents,
not from those in Tallahassee or
"The only thing that cities really
want from the state legislature is to
be left alone," said Thomas.
Thomas' presentation was followed
by an interactive dialog among
members of the audience and council.
Many jumped on the idea that a
"civics" class needs to be taught
locally to address statistics which
show that upwards of 70 percent
of high school seniors would have
trouble naming the three branches of
government (Legislative, Executive
and Judicial).
Each council member introduced
themselves, outlined the boundaries
of their Ward and offered some details
about issues, projects and concerns
currently faced by residents in the
area they serve. All of them urged
residents to be in more contact via
phone or email with their concerns.
Each city department head
introduced themselves including
interim city clerk Elaifie Barclay and
acting city manager Jim O'Reilly.
There was some discussion among
the audience members about whether
scheduling more meetings was a good
idea or not. Some thought that there
should be workshops scheduled before
each regular city council meeting in
addition to town hall meetings, while
others felt that there were too many
meetings already.
"I think we need more meetings,"
said John Freiberger. "We used to
have workshops before every council

meeting and it gave people and
opportunity to hash things out before
the official meeting."
"All of us here are very active," said
Lori Rosso, who is president of the
Gulfport Chamber of Commerce, "We
don't need more meetings. I think this
council is very transparent in what
they do. I can't think of anything
that the city staff has been doing that
we don't know about. We just don't
need another level of meetings."
"I think we have a gem of a city,"
said Marjorie Milford, "I know we
aren't perfect, but we are a great
town. I would like to see us do town
hall meetings regularly, but we need
some rules to govern them or thing
could get carried away."
In the end there was a feeling of
consensus that additional town hall
meetings with a structured agenda
focusing on one or two issues would
* be the best course of action moving
"Our goal is to hear the voice of
more people and to change the way
we are doing business, "said Michael
Yakes, mayor. "Residents should
contact their Ward council member

.: ; . -

Billy's Stone Crab
Waterfront Restaurant
'4 Tampa sBay Landmarkfor over 30 Years

with their concerns so that they can
bring these issues before council and
to these proposed town hall meetings.
The format of a town hall meeting
would allow us more flexibility than
we can have in public session during
a regular council meeting."
"The best thing to do is to bring a
neighbor with you when we have the
next one of these," said Judy Ryerson,
council member from Ward 1. "Once
people find out we're doing these the
more people will come."

S. Pasadena,
from front page
from commissioner Bruce Howry.
Kathleen Peters, commissioner
said she had an "open mind" on the
change, but was sharply critical of
the process used to present it. Larry
Crowley, commissioner, was not
"What I am most uncomfortable
about is that this is being driven
almost entirely by the mayor," said
Peters. "We have had no input from
residents, committees, staff or most
importantly from this commission.
I'm not sure I could answer someone
on the street right now about why we
are doing this. I feel like there should
have been some sort of process. We
need to know whether commissioners
even support this or not. before we
have a public town hall meeting on
The mayor responded by saying
that he thought that the issues that
the city was going to face in terms
of complex financial issues and
difficult budget cuts merited hiring a
professional to deal with them.
"I'm not thinking about South

Pasadena today, I'm thinking about
our city's future," he said. "I don't
think we have anything to lose by
having this town hall meeting. It
would be a good education process for
us as well as our citizens."
"You've said all along that you
think this city is doing great," said
vice mayor Hauser. "Our millage
rate .is one of the lowest in the
county, we have good and growing
reserves, and our community rating
is exceptional. You don't think this
commission is bright enough to deal
with the difficult problems we know
lie ahead?"'
"I just haven't bought into this,"
said commissioner Howry. "It
seems to me that another layer of
administration is going to add cost
and I know city managers often hire
consultants to deal with particular
issues, which will increase costs even
more. If there was a problem with
one or two people then we should
deal with that, not change our
whole form of government. What's
the rush on this? I'm not totally
opposed to it, but we should take the
time to carefully consider this as a
commission through workshops so
that we come to a decision that we

are all comfortable with."
The current form of commission
government means that each, of the
commissioners serves as a department
head. Those responsibilities would
be shifted to a city manager under
the mayor's proposed ordinance. The
mayor receives an annual salary
of $8,075 and each commissioner
receives annual compensation at
$6,136.25. These amounts would
be cut in half under the mayor's
Additionally, South Pasadena
utilizes the services of a full time
attorney whe- is compensated at
an annual rate of about $130,000.
She has often served as a de facto
administrator, providing guidance
and support to the commissioners in
their roles as department heads. The
current attorney has been employed
by the city for more than 15 years.
The proposed ordinance would
eliminate her position to pay for the
new city manager. The city would
then contract out legal'services on an
"as needed" basis.
The mayor indicated" after
the meeting that he felt that
commissioners were being influenced
by former mayor Fred Held.
"That's just not true," said vice
mayor Hauser. "I have my own
opinions on this issue; I don't need
anyone telling me what to believe."
Placing the proposed ordinance
on the November 12 regular council
meeting agenda will be considered
at the commission's agenda meeting
scheduled for November 4. The
agenda item would be whether
the commission wants to put the
proposed ordinance on the ballot for

Clerk, from front page
Councilmember Bob Worthington made a resolution to pay Spano the
agreed-upon $15,000 but no one on council would second it. Councilmember
Judy Ryerson said that she would move on the resolution if it included
Spano's requested $10,000 and the $715 health insurance supplement, and
Councilwoman King said she would second it for discussion.
"I don't want to seem like I'm being hard by not going for the insurance or the
other extra $10,000," Worthington said. "I did, ion many occasions, try to help
Donna. I've known her all of my life. I've known her family. This has been a
situation we've dealt with for an awful long time."
In the end Worthington remained the lone voice for holding to the signed'
agreement and Council voted unanimously to pass Resolution 2008-73, which
authorizes the city to pay Spano $25,715 in exchange for her resignation.

Public & City Official Comment on Clerk's Resignation
"I would recommend that you not engage in a discussion about
her performance or any of her past activities if you are in favor of
approving the agreement."- Gulfport City Attorney Tim Driscoll, about
the separation package offered now-former city clerk Donna Spano

"I think this is truly, truly, demeaning, nasty, and how you can even
take her career away from her by the things that are printed in the
paper and it is not very nice and you're all going to have to live with
it."-Nancy Butler, presumably referring to The Gabber's coverage of the
Clerk's performance issues.

"I went under legal advice, John, I don't have the charter before me,
but I feel very confident"-Mayor Mike Yakes to John Frieburger about
his authority to offer Donna Spano a separation agreement. Frieburger
interrupted Yakes before he could finish his sentence.

"It looks like section 305 prohibits such action and I believe you are
guilty of a second degree misdemeanor. Fm here for you to step down.
It's time."- John Frieburger to Mayor Mike Yakes about whether or not the
Mayor violated the city charter.

"Mr. Mayor, if I could just address one of the comments that was made
regarding your authority in this matter. First of all it was represented
that what you submitted to the city council was an ultimatum. It
was not an ultimatum... ,This city council placed the city clerk on
administrative leave at a meeting last week and only you can accept
or deny this agreement. This agreement is entirely up to you. It's
entirely at your discretion as to whether to approve it. The mayor
could not approve it on his own. I just wanted to make that clear."
-Tim Driscoll, ostensibly in response to John Frieburger's comments about
the Mayor.

"I won't fight this. I do appreciate Donna's years of service and I
do appreciate Donna as a person. I think, however, that the city of
Gulfport is not the winner here. So that's all I've got." -Councilmember
Bob Worthington, about authorizing an additional $10,715 to the Clerk
despite a signed agreement for $15,000.

Legal and Realty Resources, Inc. Adapting to the Market

By Greg Stemm

Offering Debt Relief, 'Real Estate
Services, and Business to Business
services; Legal and Realty Resources,
Inc. is a new company on St. Pete
Beach that operates within the Realty
Resources office on Gulf Boulevard.
The company is a partnership
between, Keith Sanders, an Attorney
with over 20 years experience; and
Michael Schaffer, Realtor, PA; Janet
W. Brooks, Realtor, GRI; and Lesley
Bell, Realtor. In addition, to the legal
services offered by Mr. Sanders; the
company specializes in short sales,
foreclosures, property management
and assisting other Realtors by
closing their short sale contracts.
Legal and Realty Resources opened
their doors on October i". The key
players all have extensive experience
in their areas of expertise. Michael
Schaffer has been a licensed Realtor
for eight years; Janet W. Brooks has
been a licensed Realtor for eight
years; and Lesley Bell has been
licensed for three years. Attorney
Keith Sanders, worked for the United
States Department of Justice before
going to into private practice and
he has over 20 years experience in
bankruptcy and real estate law.
"When people get into financial
trouble they wait too long to reach
out for help", said Attorney Sanders.
"We want to educate people and let
them know they do have choices." A
free consultation with Mr. Sanders is
just a phone call away.
Sanders noted that as opposed to
other businesses which may charge
an upfront fee, Legal and Realty
Resources only gets paid when the
client's house sells or their loap is
modified. With short sales and loan
modification, most fees are paid by the
lender. He and the agents all point
to the fact that short sales take time
and a real dedication to the process
that less experienced Realtors may
not have.
"In a short sale situation, the bank
agrees to take less money than what is
owed on the property", said Sanders.
"It is an option for the seller that
may forestall foreclosure and causes
a lot less damage to their credit
than a foreclosure. As an attorney,
I can help cut through the red tape
so that all the parties involved, from

the mortgage company, to the bank,
to the court, all know what. is going
on. Sometimes the worst problem is
that one hand does not know what the
other hand is doing. I work hard to
make sure that doesn't happen."
Sanders says that Legal and Realty
Resources can help people avoid
getting a deficiency judgment, or being
taxed on the difference on what the
house sells for and what was actually
owed. "We can't always guarantee
that won't happen, but when the
lenders see that the person is working
with a group of professionals it is very
rare that it does." Sanders offers the
entire gambit of debt relief services.
He says that it often makes sense not
only to get out from under the burden
of a house, but to get rid of other debts
as well through a bankruptcy.
Legal and Realty Resources also
offer their services to other Realtors
to quicken the closing of their short
sales, by negotiating with the banks
to get their contracts closed as quickly
as possible. No fees are charged until
the contract closed and the Realtor's

Open House

Ribbon Cutting

November 7

from 5-8 PM.

"Short Sales often require a lot of
time to complete and they demand
that someone be in constant contact
with the lender." said Bell. "That's
where Legal and Realty Resources
earns their money by reducing
the time it takes to complete the
transaction benefits the seller, the
buyer, and the lender".
"It goes without saying that it is a
great time to buy property. We may
not see the bargains that we have in
this market again and financing is
becoming available." said Brooks.
Legal and Realty Resources will
host a free seminar on a wide
variety of topics including pre-
foreclosure, short sales, bankruptcy,
mortgage loan modification, debt
relief and more on November 15'1,
from 10:00 till 1:00 at the Hospice
of the Florida Suncoast; 3050
1st Ave. S. please call for more
information. Our new website -
is coming soon.

A Greener View

By Jeff Rugg

Control Insects and
Pick up Fallen Leaves
I have been using some products
that were sent to me for testing. The
first is a group of devices from the
Schawbel Corp. that repel mosqui-
toes. I tried the ThermaCELL Patio
Lantern, the Mini Lantern and the
Olive Appliance, which also comes in
white and camouflage. If you want
to work or play outdoors, but don't
want to apply deet, this may be a
good alternative.
All three products use a small bu-
tafie canister to fuel a tiny flame.
The heat warms a metal grill that
heats a pad containing allethrin,
which vaporizes and spreads out into
the air creating a protective zone. It
may sound a little complicated, but
it is quite simple. -The insecticide
devices allow freedom of movement
since they are cordless and not bat-
tery operated. The butane cartridge
will out last about three of the pads
for a total of about 10 to 12. hours per
The literature says they will cre-
ate a 15 feet by 15 feet mosquito-free
area, I found the appliance that you
wear on your belt to be effective as
I mowed a larger lawn and picked
raspberries in a 20 feet by 30 feet
raspberry patch. In both cases, I was
spreading the vapors across the area
and not just sitting in one place. I
tried .both lanterns on the patio
where they worked to keep insects
As for the lanterns, I found neither
one to be successful as a lamp. The
larger patio lantern uses two AA
batteries to power four weak LED
lights. I had to move the lantern
right beside a newspaper page in or-
der to read; it is about as powerful as
a nightlight. The lights and mosqui-
to-repelling functions are separate.
You could turn on the light as a re-
minder thqt the butane cartridge is
in use -- it may help you remember
to turn it off.
The mini lantern is the only de-
vice that has an actual visible flame
when in use. The light created by the

flame is not as powerful as a single
birthday-cake candle. The first time
I used this lantern I didn't realize
that when the flame was off, the bu-
tane cartridge was still open. When
I came back to try the lantern again,
the tank was empty. The other prod-
ucts don't waste as much fuel. The
device has a safety switch that turns
the fuel off when not sitting on a flat
surface; therefore, it can't be carried
around like a lantern.
The allethrin vapors contain a fra-
grance, but I have talked to hunters
who use the appliance and they don't
think animals link it to humans. A
man-made version of natural pyre-
thrin insecticides, allethrin is made
from chrysanthemum flowers. The
butane cartridges are the same ones
many people already utilize in Ther-
maCELL curling irons.
I found all of the products to be ef-
fective at repelling mosquitoes and
would definitely recommend them
for that purpose; however, I can't
suggest the lanterns as light sourc-
es. Although, the light does help to
remind you that it is on and should
be turned off to avoid wasting the
butane or the allethrin pad.
The next device is the Black and
Decker Leaf Hog -- a leaf blower, leaf
vacuum and mulcher. all in one. I'
have used this product for years and
had. several complaints about it. It
was noisy, heavy and awkward. The
bag that collects the leaves kept fall-
ing off so I had to duct tape it into
place; the bag had to be taken off
several times to empty during each
use. A zippered opening on the nar-
row end made the bag more difficult
to empty. When asked if I would like
to try the new one, I was reluctant
but thought it would be nice to see if
B&D had made improvements.
Although I haven't used it often yet,
the new B&D Leaf Hog is more devel-
oped. It weighs about the same, but
balances better on the ergonomically
friendly handles. A variable speed
motor lets the device runi quietly to
blow leaves on a smooth surface like
a sidewalk; ,it won't disturb those

namby-pamby neighbors who don't
get up before 6 a.m. on Saturday.
Crank it up and you have a full 240-
mph hurricane to blast leaves out of
tall grass. It is the perfect addition
for the man who wants more power.
If you have used a leaf blower, you
know that the narrow nozzle that
aims the airflow can only move a few
leaves at a time, meaning you must
constantly move the nozzle back and
forth. This is hard work on the arms
and takes forever to move a pile of
leaves. The new B&D Leaf Hog
comes with a LeafBlaster nozzle tip,
which constantly wiggles back and
forth moving the powerful airflow --
all you have to do is walk forward. It
is so much less tiring that I might be
able to get my kids to help.
I love the vacuum mode. The new
version has a metal impeller fan
that chops up leaves into tiny pieces
if they are dry, and small pieces if
they are wet. The new leaf bag has a
wide opening that is held shut with
a sliding bar. I am not fond of this
new closure, but it works so far. The
bag attachment is a better design; no
more duct tape.
I add the chopped material into a
compost pile, or spread it under my
hedges and evergreen trees to let it
decompose naturally. I don't bag up
and pay to send away any leaves. I
use -all of the organic material my-
self. In fact, I put the product on the
vacuum mulching mode to chop-up
neighbors' leaves for my garden.
It is easy to change from blower
mode to vacuum mode. You will need
a properly sized extension cord since
it has about a 12 amp motor.
