Art Walks a
Continued Success


By Leigh Cliftonl '1
The city of Gulfport continues to have
phenomenal success with the Friday
Night and Third Saturday Art's Walk, .
held the first and third Saturday of
each month. Started approximately
14 years ago, the Art's Walk originally
started off with vendors mostly
comprised of the local artists in the
village. As it expanded, businesses -
changed hands and different vendors
found their way to Gulfport. Local
musicians found that the Walk was a .
great way to showcase Kathy, of Kathy's Kreations (rt) shows Mary Ann Tuchol,(lft) of

Gulfport Art Walk


Council Workshop
Focuses on Priorities
By Greg Stemm
Gulfport city council held a
workshop on Monday where
planning priorities were addressed.
Council gave direction to staff on a
number of issues, mainly related
to residential guidelines in the
waterfront redevelopment overlay
district (WRD).
Fred Metcalf, director of community
development, told council that his
department was working on 58
identified priorities, of which nine
are state mandated issues which
must be addressed first.
"We're making progress on these,"
said Metcalf. "They are no fun.
We'd rather be working on the
issues we've identified as important
to Gulfport."
Metcalf gave council background
on what has been done in terms
of residential guidelines in the
WRD over the past four years.
He emphasized that the primary
concern has been a relationship
between structures in the district,
which tend to be an eclectic mix and
a human scale of redevelopment.

Gulfport Receives Boat US Award
by Leigh Clifton


Boat US Vice-President of Government Affairs Margaret Podlich presented
the City of Gulfport with a Boat US Recreational Boating Access award. It
designates Gulfport as a boat-friendly port.
The Award was created to honor a group, government body, business,
individual or non-profit organization that has succeeded in preserving or
improving public waterway access for boaters. Judging criteria included:
how well challenges were overcome; the direct impact of the solution; and
how adaptable the approach would be in other areas facing similar water
access challenges. Ms. Podlich presented the award to Council members Bob
Worthington, Michelle King and Jim O'Reilly at a ceremony last Friday in front
of the Gulfport Casino. Boaters and active environmentalists Al and Cindy
Davis were among the people who were on hand to witness the presentation.
They have been instrumental in pushing for a more pro-active boating
community. The Access award will list Gulfport in boating publications as a
Boat-Access port and could be responsible for bringing in more boating and
subsequent business to the city.

5th Annual Art Market
An eclectic mix of 20 area artists
will come together in Gulfport on
November 22 to present a show and
sale of their work. The fluid core
committee, composed this year of
Jill Oldenski, Karen Colett Frank,
Pat Lamb and Linda Dawson, are
fiber and mixed-media artists who
call themselves "Eclectic & Then
Some". The name sprang from their
enthusiasm for experimentation with
multiple materials and techniques.


None could settle for making "just
one kind of thing" and they realized
that they were surrounded by others
of the same ilk. The group wanted to
create a venue for a wide variety of
fine handmade work. Thus, the Art
Market, now in its fifth year, was
born. Each year on the Saturday
before Thanksgiving, the group rents
a hall, hangs out silks and quilts on a
line, sets out homemade cookies and
punch, strings up twinkle lights and
fills the hall with a wealth of unique
art and hand-crafted items. Work

their bands and get their music to the
people. All the bands donate their
time and perform for free. The Walk
has become the perfect backdrop for a
lovely Friday night stroll up and down
the Beach Drive promenade.
In 2006, Gulfport resident Susie
King, with the support and
cooperation of the Chamber and City,
took over the coordination of the arts
walk. Attendance had slacked off
considerably and with the decline of
many of the art gallery businesses,
vendors were scarce. She started
actively seeking out vendors at
other arts and crafts fairs, recruiting
them and setting them up on the
street. Last Friday's Art Walk had 38
vendors, including several new ones.
Susie says it ranges anywhere from
40 and up.
"I just love Gulfport," Susie said.
"The City and the Chamber have
been really easy to work with and are
always receptive to new ideas for the
Walk."
But getting vendors to come to
Gulfport wasn't always easy.
"I used to have to go out and scour
for vendors at other events. Now I get
calls from THEM, wanting to come to
Gulfport. It's all started to get busy,
just by word of mouth."
One of the newest vendors is Kathy
Creations, owned by Kathy Sturdee.
She and her husband Mitch recently
moved to Florida from upstate New
York when Mitch got transferred.
They immediately fell in love with
Gulfport; Mitch was impressed with
the free parking and Kathy, who

Another new vendor, Lisa Aerts,
from St. Pete, is an artist who works

Friday night was her first time
setting up her artwork on the street

time. She has just started selling her
work, mostly on eBay, and decided to
try Gulfport. She was working on a
current piece and stopped to answer
questions from a potential buyer.
"I'll definitely come and do this
again. Its low pressure and the people
are friendly and nice!" she smiled.
There are no cooked food vendors


allowed on the Arts Walk; there are 13
restaurants within a six-block radius.
"Stroll, dine, shop!" Susie laughs.
"We also have another motto; no mall,
no meters, no (c hl.in.-
There is a nice wide variety of arts and
crafts; artwork, tie dyedclothing, hand-
made jewelry, paintings, woodcrafts,
metal sculpture, caricatures and

free of charge.
There is plenty of free parking on the
street and easy access with the free
trolley that drops off right on Beach

The Arts Walk is offered twice a

Saturday of the month and runs from
6-10 p.m. Now that the weather has
cooled to a delightfully less humid
temp, stroll by and explore the
wonderful unique flavor of Gulfport.

Points On Pets


By Matthew Margolis

First Pup
On November 4, 2008, Barack
Obama transitioned from campaign
sensation to president-elect. With
that new title came a new focus:
hammering out a viable economic
plan, implementing ways to combat
rising unemployment, measuring
the consequences of simultaneous
wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and
assembling an effective cabinet, not
to mention pondering what to do
about that angry little man in Iran.
Overnight, Obama became a man
carrying the demands of the world
on his shoulders. And overnight,
the whole world began wondering:
What's Obama gonna name his new
dog?
With the promise heard 'round the
world -- "You have earned the new
puppy that is coming with us to the
White House" -- there's no backing
out. And, as will likely be the case
with most of the incoming presi-
dent's best intentions, there are ob-
stacles from the get-go.


Last Friday in Chicago, Obama
outlined them: "We have two crite-
ria that have to be reconciled. One
is that Malia is allergic, so it has
to be hypoallergenic. On the other
hand, our preference would be to get
a shelter dog. But, obviously, a lot of
shelter dogs are mutts, like me."
The Obamas first must know that
a 100 percent hypoallergenic dog is
a fantasy. You can, however, look to
certain breeds to ensure minimal al-
lergens. Poodles are a good bet. As
are Labradoodles, Goldendoodles
and Schnoodles -- but they are pric-
ey designer dogs unlikely to be found
in a shelter and therefore unlikely to
please some constituents.
But as president of the United
States, Obama will quickly grow fa-
miliar with the claustrophobic feel-
ing of that place between a rock and
something hard.
He also will learn to give as care-
ful consideration to the veracity of
the statement, "Daddy, we'll take
care of the 1ipuppy' as he would the
statement by Iranian President


Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, "We have
firmly decided to use this technology
for peaceful I pu ..'.... .
Perhaps most importantly, he will
be expected to consistently demon-
strate a steadfast resolve to uphold
his commitments. His current com-
mitment to the best interests of this
country extends four years; his com-
mitment to the best interests of this
dog, about 15.
With that in mind, the Obamas
would be wise to choose the right
dog for their family, not their fans.
They should consider the pup's en-
ergy level, size and personality in
relation to their family dynamic. Af-
ter all, how many times do you get to
choose a family member?
The five most important tests any
pup will ever take are those de-
signed to unravel the mystery of
his personality. They answer the
questions: How friendly is your dog?
How sensitive is your dog to noise?
Is your dog hand shy? How strong is
your dog's personality? How toler-
ant is your dog? Think Barney and
the White House press corps.
If the answer to any one of those
questions falls outside the first fam-
ily's limits, that is not their dog.
Information on how to administer
these tests can be found online at
unclematty.com, or in my book, "I
Just Got a Puppy. What Do I Do?"
But the smartest move the presi-
dent can make at this early point
in his administration is to go puppy
shopping with the kids at home.
Malia: Oh, Daddy, I want this one!
Sasha: No, Daddy! I want this one!
Moooommmm!
If the president and first lady want
to do this right, they'll visit three or
four different places -- shelters, res-
cues, breeders -- and look at three
or four different dogs per visit. This
method will yield the best hypoal-
lergenic shelter mutt the first clan
could ever hope for.
As for the dog's name, I'll leave that
to the blogs.

The Lighthouse of Egmont Key Celebrates 150 Years


h-a
For 150 years, the 85 ft.
Egmont Key Lighthouse, with it's
three foot thick walls, has stood
on Egmont Key, guiding ships
into the mouth of Tampa Bay.
It's solid construction has helped
it weather countless storms and
hurricanes and is today still a
working national treasure.

By Leigh Clifton

On an absolutely stunning
Florida day, the Egmont
Key Lighthouse stood
gleaming white, resplendent
against a cloudless azure
sky. Luminous from a new
coat of white paint, the 150
year old Lighthouse was
visited by dignitaries and
ordinary people, who all
came together to celebrate
the century and a half of
guidance the Lighthouse has
provided the ships that flow
into the mouth of Tampa
Bay.
Among the 200 guests
present at the dedication was
Representative Sam Gibbons,
(retired), Representative
Kathy Castor, and Jan Platt,
retired Hillsborough County
Commissioner, who spoke for
Representative Bill Young.
Egmont Key was employed
for several different uses over
its rich history. In the 1830's,
as shipping increased, so did
the number of ships that were
grounded on the numerous
sandbars around Egmont
Key. On March 3, 1847,
Congress authorized funds
to construct a lighthouse on
Egmont. The construction
16


was completed in May, 1848.
Once completed, it was the
only lighthouse between
St. Marks and Key West.
When the Great Hurricane
of 1848 struck, tides 15 feet
above normal washed over
the island and damaged
the light. Another storm in
1852 did additional damage
and prompted Congress
to appropriate funds to
rebuild the lighthouse and
lightkeeper's residence.
At the end of the third
Seminole War in 1858,
Egmont Key was used by the
U.S. Army to detain Seminole
prisoners until they could
be transported to Arkansas
Territory.
In 1858, the lighthouse
was reconstructed to
"withstand any storm." The
new tower is 87 feet high
with an Argard kerosene
lamp and fixed Fresnel
lens. Confederate troops
occupied the island when the
Civil War began. Realizing
they could not defend their
position, the Confederates
evacuated Egmont, taking
with them the Fresnel lens
from the tower. The Union
navy used Egmont to operate
their Gulf Coast blockade
of the Confederacy. Union
troops raided Tampa in an
unsuccessful effort to locate
the missing lens.
The lighthouse returned to
normal operation at the end
of the war. After the Civil
War, the lightkeeper, his
assistant and their families
were the principal residents
of the island from 1866 to
1898.
The Tampa Bay Pilots
Association, established in
1886, set up operations on
the island in 1926. When
ships approach Tampa Bay,
a pilot boards the vessel in
the main channel and directs
the ship to the docks. As
the vessel leaves the dock
the pilot guides it out and
returns to Egmont Key on
one of the pilot boats. The
work of the pilots helps
to protect the Bay from
environmental damage that


would result from grounding
and/or collisions.
In 1939, the Lighthouse
Service was transferred to the
U.S. Coast Guard, which has
maintained the light as well
as radio guidance equipment.
The Key was designated a
National Wildlife Refuge in
1974, managed by the U.S.
Fish and Wildlife Service.
Due to staffing limitations
and increased public
visits, the Wildlife Service
was unable to protect the
resources on its own. When
the Coast Guard automated
the light, Coast Guard
personnel were reassigned.
The Florida Park Service
began operations at Egmont
Key on October 1, 1989, as
part of a co-management
agreement with the U.S. Fish
and Wildlife Service.
Some of this history courtesy
of the Egmont Key State Park
History, Florda State Park Guide,
www ForidaStateparks org)

The Lighthouse dedication
ceremony was officiated
by Stan Farnham. Both
he and Richard Johnson, a
retired lightkeeper and past
president of the Egmont Key
Alliance, dressed in exact


," 4 -


replica of the lighthouse
keeper's uniform of 100 years
ago. Stressing the importance
of maintaining the island
and its history, Farnham
told the crowd that recent
funding cuts may result in
the removal of the full time
caretaker Tom Watson, the
assistant park manager,
who lives on the island and
overseas the lighthouse and
island's security. The funding
cuts would further limit the
beach replenishment projects
that Egmont Key requires,
due to constant tidal erosion.
Presenting Rep. Sam
Gibbons with a "Hero of
Egmont Key" medal for
all of his tireless efforts in
the restoration of Egmont
Key, President of Egmont
Key Alliance Jim Spangler
stressed that others must
now pick up the torch that
Gibbons has passed.
The ceremonies concluded
with the unveiling of a plaque
at the foot of the Lighthouse
by Scott Robinson of the
Florida Park Service and
Susan KesselofSWIFTMUD,
commemorating its 150 years
of service.

Priorities, from front page
He identified two main current
issues for which he was seeking
guidance from council which
included guidelines regarding
multistory structures and the
guidelines governing which types of
roofs are allowed. He also outlined
some "performance option zoning"
guidelines and asked council for
direction on these.
At specific issue with multistory
structures in the district were
whether to remove setbacks entirely,
remove setbacks when associated
with a particular architectural style
or to consider other options. Council
seemed to be in agreement that front
setbacks were more important than
back setbacks. Vice mayor Michele
King asked about having different
side setbacks based upon the size
of the home for new construction.
1N1., 1..- a 1000 sq. foot house has 6
foot setbacks, while a 2000 sq. foot
home might have 8 foot ones," she
said.
Council also asked staff to come
up with a draft of proposed roof
guidelines and also to explore
performance option zoning, although
the mayor cautioned that this could
"become a full time job for staff and
we don't want that."

Wha is th oe dsh orie-ta o
The Gabs absolutely MUST haverl
By Ligh liftn atThansgivng Dnner


Maria Thornbrough, St. Pete: 1\ yI
favorite is really the leftovers; I love
to make a white meat turkey sand-
wich, with cheddar cheese and cran-
berry sauce on a nice hearty bread. I
also like sweet potatoes, but I make
them mashed, with just a drizzle of
maple syrup and butter, then top with
crushed walnuts. Its not as sweet as
the kind with the marshmallows."


John Dennelly, So. Pasadena:
"I really love the cranberry sauce;
it's just so much a part of the whole
Thanksgiving tradition. But it seems
like when we sit down to eat, we al-
ways realize that we have forgotten
it! I have been to other people's din-
ners and THEY forgot it! I ALWAYS
seem to forget to get it. I think I need
someone to call me every year before
Thanksgiving dinner and remind me.
Maybe then I'll remember to pick
some up!"


Jim Connors, Tampa: "Dessert!
My wife is an incredible cook and ev-
ery year I look forward to her Apple
Pie for Thanksgiving dinner dessert.
She makes this crust that is so light,
tasty and gorgeous; its to die for! All
of her food is really beautiful and she
is an excellent cook. We also do our
turkey a little differently than most
people. We brine it for 24 hours, then
I grill it. The brining makes it really
moist and juicy. I'm getting hungry
just talking about it!"


Tomasa Molina, Gulfport: "I am
originally from Puerto Rico and we
HAVE to have Gandulas; it is a tra-
ditional rice and pidgeon beans dish
that we eat with every holiday meal.
It's not really spicy but it is delicious!
If you don't have Gandulas, you are
really missing something."

SHHH...No Talking!
Dear Editor: While I greatly en-
joyed the Gulfport Community Play-
ers' production of "Laura" on Nov.
14th at the Hickman Theater, I feel
compelled to take some of my fellow
audience members to task for their
boorishness. I am in no way affili-
ated with this group or the theater;
I'm just a fan. While the Hickman
is a fine local facility, it's inevitable
that, due to an understandable lack
of technical features, some onstage
dialogue can get lost in the ether.
This problem isn't helped by pa-
trons who think they're still at home
watching a movie and believe it's
okay to speak to their companions in
a loud voice, with no apparent con-
cern for those around them; some-
times over several rows' worth.
Thiswasnot anisolatedcircumstance
but happened continuously and from
all sections of the theater...which is
entirely my point. When I can hear
people ten rows up from my front
row seat and they're still drowning
out the actors, I am unable to follow
the plot and now distracted, as well.
I was further disheartened, hear-
ing several patrons laughing aloud
during dramatic action moments
in this play's climax. In doing so,
you demonstrated your rudeness
and ignorance, people. The Players
do a great job and I can't imagine the
level of dedication it took to prepare
for this dialogue-heavy production.
What was so funny?
The convoluted plot of "Laura" re-
quires the audience to pay attention,
keep track of the dialogue and, in the
process, allow others the courtesy
of doing the same. If you don't wish
to do so then, please, in the future,
go to the coffee shop on Beach Bou-


levard to yak, instead of a play. If
you're hearing isn't what it used to
be, perhaps the Hickman can look
into making headphones available,
as do other local theaters.
Mostly, I ask you to just be aware
of your surroundings and act accord-
ingly. We'll all appreciate it. To Ei-
leen Navarro and future directors,
may I suggest that your onstage pre-
play comments include not only a re-
quest that phones be turned off, but
a polite suggestion that the audience
refrain from idle chat, however you'd
like to try wording that. Good luck!
Lawrence Lewis


Make 2008 A
Local Holiday
Dear Editor: As the holidays near,
they bring warm thoughts of family
and friends. Most of us remember
growing up in small towns and have
fond memories of holiday seasons
with beautifully decorated evergreen
trees, colorful lights and friendly shop
keepers waiting to help with our holi-
day purchases. The shops were small
and independently owned by people
that made a decision to be part of the
community they lived in and loved.
Neighborhood shop owners are part
of our community. They know us by
name. They employ our friends. They
contribute to the local economy and
help sponsor local events and causes.
They have a stake in the community.
They're our friends and neighbors.
By shopping local we help each oth-
er. Money spent in Gulfport, stays in
Gulfport.
In these stressful economic times
many of our neighbors will have it a
little bit more difficult this year, pro-
viding a holiday meal and gifts for


their children will be just a little bit
harder.
Operation Santa, organized by the
Gulfport Police Department, is in
full swing with many more families
asking for help. None of us wants
to see the disappointment in a child
that feels forgotten. By adopting a
family or making a contribution we
help someone in our community have
a better holiday. Knowing you've
helped someone is a very rewarding
feeling and will keep a smile on your
face all season long. Now that's a real
gift!
To get involved with Operation
Santa please call Francine at the
Gulfport Police Dept. Her number is
893-1653 or Cindy at 893-1049.
Peace on earth and goodwill toward
men is the meaning of this season.
Let all of us in Gulfport start this
holiday season spreading goodwill
among each other and taking care of
one another.
Michele King

What Steps are Involved
in the Probate Process?
Part III
(This Article is Part III in our re-
view of the Florida probate process
and follows our last feature on pro-
bate.)
5. Filing the Inventory
Next, a Personal Representative
is required to develop an inventory
and appraisal of an estate's assets
and debts which must be filed with
the Probate Court.
When developing an inventory, the
Personal Representative should iden-
tify all of the estate's probate prop-
erty, including both real estate and
personal property. To conduct the
inventory, the Personal Representa-
tive may need to visit a savings and
loan or bank to determine the value
of a savings account on the date of
death. When doing so, it is best for
the Personal Representative to take
along letters of administration as
proof of his/her authority.
While the inventory need not detail
every last piece of clothing or all of
the pots and pans, the Personal Rep-
resentative must place a value on the

deceased's personal articles, includ-
ing keepsakes. A Personal Repre-
sentative may estimate the value of
estate property or hire a professional
appraiser to determine the value of
probate assets. A Personal Repre-
sentative should be involved in the
inventory and appraisal as much as
possible.
When conducting the inventory,
the Personal Representative should
distinguish between property that
the deceased owned individually
(probate property) and jointly with
right of survivorship (non-probate
property).
6. Paying Creditors, Taxes and
Fees
All debts and taxes owed by the
estate are then required to be paid.
A Personal Representative is respon-
sible for determining the validity of
creditor claims and paying the debts.
A Personal Representative is also re-
sponsible for preparing and filing the
tax returns. The following types of
taxes may arise in estate administra-
tion:
A. Personal Income Tax
B. Estate Income Tax
C. Inheritance Tax
D. Estate Tax
Compared with the substantial
value of many estates, court costs
and probate administration fees may
seem relatively minor.
In addition to court fees, estates
normally incur other administra-

tion costs. Perhaps most significant
among these is attorney's fees and
the cost of providing the required
notice. Registered letters may need
to be mailed to all interested parties
and a Personal Representative must
publish notice of the estate in local
newspapers. Also, an estate will
have to cover the cost of the Personal
Representative's bond.
7. Preparing the Final Accounting
The Personal Representative
prepares a final accounting of the
estate's value and debts. The final
accounting is complete once the in-
ventory, appraisal, and payment of
any outstanding taxes and debts is
accomplished. The final account-
ing is a detailed balance sheet that
shows the value of all the estate's
assets, along with any income or
interest earned, debts paid, money
owed, and tax payments. The final
accounting is sent to the Court and
all interested parties for review and
approval. The heirs have a right to
challenge this accounting because a
mistake could directly affect the size
of their inheritances.
8. Distributing the Assets
The Personal Representative
next oversees the distribution of the
estate's assets to survivors, accord-
ing to the instructions in the will. If
a person dies without a will, then the
intestacy laws of the State of Florida
direct the distribution.
9. Closing the Estate
Following approval of the final
accounting, a Personal Representa-
tive can close the estate. To do so, a
Personal Representative submits a
sworn statement to the Probate Court
and interested parties which specifies
all estate business is finished. This
may require a formal Court hearing
with all interested parties given the
opportunity to attend.

AtMtoroscoDe Guide


By Holiday Mathis

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Rela-
tionships are a dance, and you are an
expert dancer. You know how far to
exert yourself and when to refrain.
You know what to reveal and how to
build a mystery. You can risk being
more open this week without wor-
rying that others will take you for
granted. Be confident in your powers
of attraction.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21).
Though you could make your point
and motivate others to follow and
agree with you, you may decide on a
softer approach now. You are more
interested in what others have to say
than you are eager to push your own
agenda. You can see the pleasure and
profit that is to be had by playing it
low-key.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19).
Your social savvy is put to the test
and succeeds. You bring people to-
gether in laughter and good will.
You understand who you are dealing
with and do not confuse your needs
for theirs. Through self-sacrifice you
gain access to all you want. However,
the joy you derive from seeing others
happy is enough for you.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18).
You're always thinking about those
who have less than you. You'll decide
that whatever you were striving for is
far less important than your contri-
bution to those around you. A friend
in crisis requires special handling on
Saturday. What you do in the name of
love will bring great, though not im-
mediate, reward.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You
make ambitious plans because the
right people are around to help you
pull it all off. Know when to pull back
and do nothing. Others need down-
time as much as you do and will ap-
preciate your stellar sense of rhythm.
A coincidence that happens Friday or
Saturday represents a rare opportu-


nity. Snag it!
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Be
aware of nuances, and listen care-
fully to what people are trying to tell
you. Important information could
come across in such a tedious man-
ner that you have to pay extra close
attention to catch it. Devote your
spare moments to making a loved
one feel valued. This energy expense
comes back to treat you later.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Life
feels good to you when you take it
slow. You don't interrupt people
while their talking, you're gracious
in traffic, and wherever possible you
pull back and let others go ahead of
you. Not everyone will offer you the
same courtesy, but you can be sure
that your example makes an impact
this season.
GEMINI (iIl.n 21-June 21). Since
the rest of the world seems to be mov-
ing at a much slower pace than you,
it's prime time to practice waiting pa-
tiently. Make a game of it. See how
long you can smile kindly at the ones
who take forever to do the simplest
things. Be gracious. It's more impor-
tant than being interesting or funny
or attractive.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). There
is so much you need to do for your
nearest and dearest (including your-
self) that you're hesitant to involve
yourself in the needs of those further
from your heart. However, it's the
connections you make outside your
usual realm that will be the most
meaningful now. You'll make a pro-
found difference.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Early in
the week it's easy to get discouraged.
Huge goals seem unattainable and
large obstacles seem insurmountable.
However, as the week goes on you
find ways to turn your inner strength
into outer power. Since you are only
as big as you think you are, think of
yourself as being super-strong and
capable of miracles.


VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). There's
something in your personality that
people can't help but fall in love with.
You make them want to assist you in
whatever way you require. It's a use-
ful talent this week because you need
to have a team in place in order for
your plan to work. Thursday, your
timing is exquisite and you are lucky
in love, too.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Experi-
ence has taught you well. You recog-
nize the pattern this week will take,
so you're prepared with all you need
to do your work well and enjoy the
company of others. From this po-
sition you can relax and enjoy the
events you have planned, which will
be gratifying for all.
This Week's Birthdays: You have
a strong ability to put your mind over
your mood, and this habit keeps you
on a winning path. Often your mood
will be good, but you realize it needs
to be even better in order to take on
all you've signed up for and do it well.
So you become an expert at pepping
yourself up to high levels of enthu-
siasm. There is plenty to be excited
about over the next 10 weeks as re-
lationships grow closer and big deci-
sions are made. Your financial pic-
ture defies the economy in January.

In Memoriam
GARY BOOTH
"The Loneliest Time of my Life"
I love a person who lives no more;
It was my brother, there could
be no other,
Someone like him is hard to com-
pare, for he was very rare.
My brother meant so much to me,
if only someone could just see;
Then they'd know how it could be.
The loss of my brother is just the
start of what will be
deep in my heart;
I'll never forget when we romped
and roared, and all the days
we once shared;
The look in his eyes, the smile on his
face, there is no more, not a trace.
Laid in a casket beneath the ground,
where he won't be bothered
nor found;
He's now in heaven, that's where
I'm bound,
He's the lucky one of us all,
Someday my name will be called.
It's not the grief and sorrow I hear
It's the emptiness and
loneliness inside;
No matter how hard you try,
no one can take his place;
for he was one of a kind,
and hard to be replaced.

Dinner
Val International catered a very nice Thanksgiving Dinner for about 50 peo-
ple on Friday, November 7 at 5:30 in Hibiscus Hall. Turkey, ham and many
side dishes were served and pumpkin pie afterwards to give everyone enough
energy for the coming bingo. Two 50/50 chances were drawn at $35 each and
afterwards 10 games of bingo were played with many happy winners. By 8:00
everyone was on their way home.
Civic Association
The Sheriffs Department sent two detectives for our meeting on Wednesday,
November 12 Tom Jewett and David Kavagh distributed leaflets about Iden-
tity Theft and David spoke at length about scams perpetrated on citizens. He
warned to never have your social security number around but keep it in a safe
place ore remember it. There are a number of ways identity theft can be accom-
plished by thieves, such as dumpster diving, asking for personal information
and simply stealing wallets or purses. The best safeguard for your is to shred
financial documents, protect your social security number and don't give out
personal information on the phone. Be wary of unsolicited mail, such as credit
card offers and carry only the credit cards you really need with you. Identity
thieves can drain your bank account by using your checks or debit cards and
open new bank accounts in your name. If someone asks for your personal in-
formation, find out what it will be used for and why. If it sounds too good, it
probably is a scam. If you have to report having been swindled or need help,
call 576-1533 which is the Senior Helpline.
The 50/50 chances were drawn and coffee and cookies donated by Palms of
Pasadena were served.
Happy Thanksgiving to all of you!

Chicken Ordinance Pecks Ahead


By Greg Stemm

Chickens took one step closer to
being allowed in Gulfport city limits
on Tuesday. Council considered a
draft ordinance which was taken
almost verbatim from a similar
ordinance adopted by the city of
St. Petersburg. Gulfport current
ordinances do not allow poultry to
be kept within the city limits.
The ordinance considered stated
that fowl could be kept as long as
they are fenced and confined to the
premises of the owner, and coops
and runways are kept clean and free
from offensive odors. The ordinance
stated that they may be kept in
any district, however in residential
districts they cannot be kept with
100 feet of an adjacent residence
without the consent of the owner or
occupant of that residence. Noisy
fowl, including roosters are declared
a nuisance and cannot be kept after
a complaint is made.
Council and staff took exception to a


number of the line items in the draft
ordinance and changed or eliminated
them, directing staff to come back to
the council with a revised ordinance
at a later meeting.
Tim Driscoll, city attorney advised
the council that having a stipulation
of allowing the animals only if a
neighbor agreed was a recipe for
disaster.
"You will almost certainly end up
with issues between neighbors and
enforcement will be very difficult,"
said Driscoll. "You will end up
creating conflict between residential
neighbors and the city will be smack
in the middle of it."
Driscoll also noted that the
proposed ordinance did not limit the
number of animals which could be
kept, nor did it outline restrictions on
how the animals could be kept. The
original ordinance also included not
only chickens, but geese, ducks, and
guinea fowl. Council's discussion
led them to remove all but chickens
under the accepted guidelines.

Roosters would not be allowed t all,
not just removed after a complaint.
There was discussion about the
number of chickens a particular
resident could harbor ranging
from as little as two to as many as
six. Finally, the council came to a
consensus that the number should
be limited to four.
Mayor Michael Yakes seemed to
be losing some patience with the
discussion of this topic.
"We've been talking about chickens
almost longer than we did about the
budget," said Yakes. "If we're going
to allow them, we need to get a final
ordinance in place and move on."

"With increasing mortgage

of 2005 reform legislation, it is
important for attorneys to be
familiar with the change in the law,
which effects the rights of consumers
and business people alike," said the
conference's namesake and chair,
Judge Alexander Paskay. Paskay is
Chief Bankruptcy Judge Emeritus
of the Middle District of Florida, and
an adjunct professor at Stetson Law.
A national faculty of bankruptcy

City Clerk Advertising Approved
On Tuesday, Gulfport city council directed staff to begin advertising for a new
city clerk using criteria discussed and approved at that meeting. Gulfport's
clerk was recently terminated amid charges of incompetence and excessive
absenteeism.
Of most concern were the minimum educational requirements which were
to be included for a position that pays between $52,537 and $84,059 annually.
The original draft called only for a high school diploma and designation as a
Certified Municipal Clerk. This was amended to say that a bachelor's degree
was preferred with a minimum of an associate's degree and a comparable level
of experience and training.
Bob Worthington, council member from Ward 3 said he would like to see
a clerk with a certification in records or extensive experience in records
management.
It is estimated that the advertising for the clerk position will cost about
$1,000 which will come from the city's human resource budget.

We Can't Do It Without YOU!

Budget Advice
Stuck with lots of debt and little
savings? It's easy to find excuses that
let you off the hook to change your
situation, but it's only a temporary
reprieve. One excuse just leads to an-
other and another and eventually to
a way of life. Maybe it's time to dump
your excuses.
--Excuse: I don't have time to learn
to manage my money.
We all have time to do what matters
most to us. It makes no sense for you
to work as hard as you do, only to end
up with no solid assets to show for it.
--Excuse: I can't stick with a bud-
get.
Perhaps you've been trying to cram
yourself into a budget that doesn't fit.
Here's the way to create a plan that
will fit you perfectly: For the next 30
days, keep a written record of every
dime you spend. At the end of the


month, categorize your spending, and
come up with a total spent for each
category. Then multiply those catego-
ries by 12 to get a rough estimate of
what you will spend in a year if you
keep it up. You'll see immediately
where you need to make adjustments.
Look for ways to reduce every area of
spending by a little bit. Continue to
track spending, adjusting where nec-
essary to get it below your income. It
takes time to get a spending plan just
right, so be patient, and don't give
up.
--Excuse: This purchase will add
only a small amount to my credit card
balance. I owe so much now anyway
that this small amount won't matter.
That $50 outfit, when added to a
typical credit card balance of $1,000,
immediately turns into a $106 outfit
when you add in the interest. It also
adds a full three months to the time it

will take to repay the balance. Keep it
up and you never will get out of debt.
--Excuse: I only can save $10 a week,
and that's not enough to do any-
thing.
Are you kidding" Weekly deposits
of $10, added systematically to an
account with an average return of
6 percent, will grow to $7,118 in 10
years. Depositing $10 a week is sig-
nificant. Just imagine if you could
double that. Sure, rates aren't at that
level right now, but they'll come back.
Get started saving now so you will be
able to benefit from the next upturn
in the economy.
--Excuse: I don't earn enough to par-
ticipate in my employer's retirement
plan.
Do you earn enough to turn down
a raise and a tax deduction? That's
what you're doing if your employer
offers a tax-deferred retirement plan
and you don't participate. The money
put into this kind of plan is free of
current taxes, and most employers
match at least part. That's like get-
ting a tax-free raise.

People's
Common Scents
You may be what you eat, but not
how you smell.
Scientists at the Monell Chemical
Senses Center in Philadelphia say
new research suggests a person's
underlying odor -- our distinct indi-
vidual aroma -- remains intact and
detectable even with major changes
in diet.
"The findings using this animal
model support the proposition that
body odors provide a consistent
'odorprint' analogous to a fingerprint
or DNA sample," Gary Beauchamp,
a Monell behavioral biologist.
Mammals from mice to humans are
known to produce unique genetical-
ly determined body odors, which are
thought to help distinguish individ-
uals from one another. Some foods,
such as garlic, can influence body
odor if eaten in large amounts.


But in behavioral tests at Monell,
special "sensor" mice were trained to
use their sense of smell to seek a cer-
tain "odortype" among other mice,
who represented different genetic
types and diets. Invariably, the sen-
sor mice sniffed out their targets.
"If this can be shown to be the case
for humans," said Jae Kwak, one of
the study authors, "it opens the pos-
sibility that devices can be devel-
oped to detect individual odorprints
in humans."
Similar approaches are being used
to investigate body-odor differences
associated with disease, with an eye,
uh, nose toward developing early de-
tection electronic sensors.
BODY OF KNOWLEDGE
One out of every 2,000 newborns
sports a tooth at birth.

Contract Services Approved

for 49th Street Outfall
By a vote of 4-1 Gulfport city council approved awarding engineering services
of TBE Group, Inc. in the amount of $103,885 for the 49th Street Outfall
Improvements project. Council member Bob Worthington voted no.
Back in December 2005 the city had submitted a grant application to the
Southwest Florida Water Management District (SWFWMD) for co-funding the
drainage improvement project using Gulfport's land involved and $250,000
for matching funds. Initial comments from SWFWMD indicated they did not
consider the land as a project cost and suggested that the city split the project
into two phases, Tangerine Avenue and 49th Street. The city modified the
application and the first phase of Tangerine Avenue was completed in May
2008.
On August 19, 2009 council approved a 40-month contract with the Florida
Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) for $800,000 in matching
funds for the 49th Street portion of the project. On September 2, 2008 council
approved a 27-month contract with SWFWMD for $496,700 in matching funds
for the project. On September 4, 2007 council authorized the city manager
to award an engineering services contract to TBE Group for the preliminary
design of the 49th Street Outfall Improvements. The completed 30 percent
plans were discussed by council at a workshop last Monday.
Don Sopak, director of public works told council at that workshop that the
project includes the construction of two retention ponds and a series of "baffle
boxes" to remove suspended solids before they reach Boca Ciega Bay.
The ponds are scheduled to treat up to 244 acres and will remove 2,320
pounds of pollution. The ponds will be constructed at the end of Coronodo
Way. The baffle boxes will include three chambers, each cleaning a variety
of different types of sediment from leaves and trash to car emission such as
brake and transmission fluid.
The total cost of the project is $2,043,540 of which about a half million
dollars comes from the city budget. The rest is covered by grants.
The approval to move ahead on this project under the current guidelines was
not without some dissent.
"SWFWMD has not always been a friend of Gulfport, or had a true
partnership with it," said Al Davis, resident and head of the citizen's group
Gulfport Water Watch. "This project will only capture about 80 percent of the
sediment flowing into the bay and around the marina. SWFWMD has stated
they have no intention of removing sediment that builds up and so we are
going to have an accumulation of sediment in that area. Also, there is no plan
to monitor what is in the sediment...its toxicity or content. I would caution
council on this relationship."

ACCEPTING NEW PATIENTS











Sustainable Livii
By Shawn Dell Joyce

Locavore Thanksgiving
Right now, many of us are plan-
ning our Thanksgiving dinners. You
have a big decision: to sit in front of
a meal of imported ingredients grown
around the world, in places the Pil-
grims never set foot, or skip the su-
permarket and source all the ingre-
dients for Thanksgiving dinner from
local farms, mills and growers.
Eating local embodies the spirit of
the first Thanksgiving, when Puri-
tans and Wampanoag sat down to-
gether to share a meal that consisted
mainly of shellfish, eels, wild fowl (in-
cluding swans and eagles) and other
local foods that they could gather or
grow. When we source our foods lo-
cally, we eat in season and celebrate
what's available near us. Absent from
the first Thanksgiving feast were
modern traditional dishes, such as
corn on the cob (all corn was dried by
that time of year), pumpkin pie (they
had no sugar), cranberry sauce (ma-
ple syrup was their only sweetener)
and stuffing (they served pudding).
We have altered the menu through
the years, to the point that we re-
hash and serve the exact same dishes
over and over. This year, have a real
Thanksgiving by celebrating the local
harvest and the hardworking hands
that grew it. Buy your dinner ingre-
dients from local farms, and prepare
what is seasonally available in your
area. Your food dollars will stay local,
nourishing the farm family, farm-
hands and local community. This is
an act of gratitude that bolsters your
local economy during tight times.
Right now, you can find turkeys that
live the way nature intended, chas-
ing bugs, scratching in the grass and
frolicking in the fall leaves, instead
of penned up one on top of another in
factory farms. These turkeys will cost
a little more than their supermarket
counterparts because they are not
mass-produced or government-subsi-
dized.
As a matter of fact, none of our small
local farms is government-subsidized,
so when you pay a little more for local
produce, it is because you are paying
the full cost to grow the food at a fair


rate. Large farms that wholesale to
chain grocers are subsidized by our
tax dollars, which lowers the cost of
goods on the supermarkets' shelves.
This makes nonlocal grocery items
appear cheaper than locally grown
foods, but there are hidden costs that
must be paid in the long run by some-
one else. These hidden costs include
the loss of soil fertility, the social
costs of cheap labor, and the environ-
mental devastation of shipping food
thousands of miles.
We Americans are used to cheap
and plentiful food; we spend less on
food than any other developed nation
in the world. On average, Americans
spend only 2 percent of their dispos-
able income on meat and poultry,
compared with 4.1 percent in 1970.
This quest for cheap and plentiful has
seen the average size of a farm bloat,
while the number of farms and farm-
ers has decreased. In the 1960s, one
farmer supplied food for 25.8 people
in the U.S. and abroad. Today that
same farmer feeds 144 people.
This policy has led to a decline in
farming. Farming even was removed
as an occupation from the census. The
average age of an American farmer is
about 55. When these folks retire, few
young people wish to take their places
in the cheap food chain. Our national
hope for food security lies with small-
scale agriculture. Younger farmers
are opting for organic and smaller-
scale farms that retail directly to the
public through farmers markets and
specialty shops. Eighteen percent of
organic farmers are younger than 35,
compared with 5.8 percent in conven-
tional agriculture.
For farming to be an economically
viable profession, we must make it
more profitable for the farmers by
eliminating the middleman. Right
now, farmers get about 8 cents of ev-
ery dollar we spend on food in chain
groceries. When you buy directly
from the farm, the farmer gets the
whole dollar, and that dollar has the
economic impact of $2 in the farmer's
community.
This year, as you and your fam-
ily gather around the Thanksgiving


feast, offer a prayer of gratitude for
our small farmers and farmworkers.
Give thanks that we still have people
in our country willing to grow quality
food in a market flooded with cheap
imports. Support these hardworking
folks by eating locally grown foods,
at the holiday table and year-round.
Let's reject our national food system
-- which makes "cheap" the highest
priority, at a deep cost to the environ-
ment, the farmers and future gener-
ations -- and spend a little more on
quality local food and farms.

ner ingredients: www.LocalHarvest.

Design Public Art
for Tennis Center
Artists are invited to submit
applications for exterior public
art for the St. Petersburg Tennis
Center at Bartlett Park. The center
is both a historic landmark in the
sports history of St. Petersburg and
a vibrant, active sports facility that
serves children and adults.
A new clubhouse with a wrap-
around covered porch/viewing area
will be built on the site of the original
WPA-era clubhouse. The motto of the
tennis center is Proud of Our Past
Dedicated to Our Future.
The Project Committee seeks art
that will relate to the tennis mission
of the facility, and is appealing to
young people. Art may also help to
interpret the history of the tennis
center, particularly its "Walk of
Champions" on the wrap-around
porch which will display the names
of over 50 tennis players who
have played matches at the center
throughout its history. Art must
withstand the Florida humidity, salt
air, hurricane force winds, strong UV
and unsupervised, frequent contact
with children.
For more information including
architectural drawings and complete
instructions on how to apply, go to
www.stpete.org/callforartists.

Public Comment


& Council Quotes

Excerpts heard at the November 18, 2008
Gulfport city council meeting

"Can they be quiet chickens?" Bob Worthington, council member
during the discuss of the proposed ordinance which would allow residents
to keep up to four chickens as pets within the city limits of Gulfport.

"I think you should allow at least 2 chickens per person in a
household. We have ten chickens and that is what we based it on.
I am unemployed and so is my husband. We use the eggs to help
feed our family. As the economy worsens more and more people
may have the same need." Jennifer Conroy, the resident who became
the center of the chicken discussions when Gulfport police cited her for
keeping them in violation of current city ordinances.

"This department has been in disarray for a very long time. Are
you going to be upfront with the candidate for the position about
that? Have we ever done an audit of this department? I think it
would help you come clean with applicants and citizens about just
what they are going to find in the city clerk's office."- Marguerite
Tober, speaking in public session regarding the selection of a new city
clerk.

"I'm here to speak about the trolley. Please don't misunderstand;
I'm all for it and I want to see it succeed. I also know that it takes
some time to establish a new route and we should give it plenty
of time to do that. But I would like to regularly see updates on
how it's doing, based on ridership numbers. I'm just interested in
transparency since there is a cost to the city. I've been involved
with issues surrounding public transportation for a long time
and I know there is always a subsidy that must be born by the
government. But in today's tough economic climate the city needs
to watch its budget." -Bob Newcomb, resident.

"We have been putting those numbers in the city manager's report
which you can read online"-Jim O'Reilly, interim city manager on the
request made by Newcomb to see ridership numbers.

"I have an objection to public session being at the end of this
meeting. It's not fair to residents to have to wait through the whole
meeting to express their concerns about the city." -Jim Greenwald,
resident

"Two weeks ago I had the opportunity to visit city hall in Safety
Harbor and spent some time with their city clerk and deputy clerk.
They have a very streamlined operation and gave me some materials
they use to help train their commissioners and their staff. They
offered a very interesting invitation to council to take a trip up
to Safety Harbor to meet with them and see their operation. Site
trips can be difficult because of the Sunshine laws, but they can
schedule a meeting where there are no votes or consensus taken...
it would be in the sunshine the entire time. I hope you will think
about their offer."-Lee Stapella, resident.










A Greener View

By Jeff Rugg


A Greener View
Book Reviews
Call me old-fashioned if you want to,
but I like books. I would rather read
a book than look at a light-emitting
screen. I hope it is a long time before
there is a New York Times list of the
best-selling computer screens, even
though the Times itself is already
available electronically.
I have been reading some wonder-
ful books lately and I think you may
want to put them on your holiday
shopping list.
The first one is the small "Timber
Press Pocket Guide to Water Garden
Plants" by Greg and Sue Speichert. I
have known the Speicherts for about
20 years. They are a hardworking
duo that love aquatic plants. There
are plenty of friendly people in the
green industry, but Greg's name is
short for gregarious.
They originally wrote the $50 cof-
fee-table-sized "Encyclopedia of Wa-
ter Garden Plants." It has over 700
color photos and covers hundreds of
common and little-known plants. If
you are a water gardener, I highly
recommend it.
The new book takes the best 450
plants from the encyclopedia and
covers them with 300 color photos.
It provides the practical information
on how to grow the plants in ponds,
containers or rain gardens. At only
$19, it is a bargain that every gar-
dener with a container, pond or even
just a wet spot in the yard ought to
own.
"The New Encyclopedia of Daylil-
ies" by Ted Petit and John Peat is


fascinating. It is also available at
bookstores and is published by Tim-
ber Press.
I like lilies in general for the shape
and colors of the flower, the ease of
care and very often a pleasing fra-
grance. I have a lot of daylilies, too.
They are easy to grow and have al-
most no insect or disease problems.
Many newer daylilies bloom longer
than the old kinds and there are some
that grow in very warm climates and
others that grow in Canada. Every
garden should have a few.
This book has pictures of more
than 1,700 daylily flowers and, yes,
almost all of them do look different.
I figured this had to be a picture of
almost every daylily known to man-
kind, but the authors mention that
the American Hemerocallis Society
has registered at least 60,000 dif-
ferent kinds of daylilies, so I guess I
will have to wait for the revised ver-
sion to see them all.
The book isn't just a bunch of pretty
pictures. It also includes the history
of daylilies and of daylily hybridiz-
ing, which turns out to be something
anyone can do. The instructions on
how to make your own daylily hybrid
are in the book and sound so easy
that I am planning on trying it next
summer. There are well-illustrated
chapters on the various kinds of day-
lily flowers, cultivation and propaga-
tion.
Getting new seeds for a daylily
only takes a few months. Growing it
to get flowers takes a year to three
years. If it is pretty, it still needs to
be evaluated for hardiness, disease
resistance and other characteristics.


Once it is decided that it is a good
flower and plant, it can be propa-
gated for production and sale. It can
take many more years before it will
be available for retail sales. The last
chapter of the book includes pictures
of over 550 new daylily varieties that
are in the evaluation stage that were
supplied by hybridizers. This gives
a sneak preview of some new char-
acteristics that daylily lovers will be
able to have in their gardens. Want a
blue daylily? A completely blue day-
lily isn't in the book, but a variety of
blue shades and tints are available
on several new daylilies.
The last book I am going to recom-
mend is "Planthropology" by Ken
Druse. As the name suggests it is a
history of plant discovery. Plants in
our gardens have history. The loca-
tion where they originally grew in
the wild and who discovered it or
brought it to the attention of garden-
ers is often filled with intrigue, and
in some cases, even murder. Much of
the discovery of the world by Euro-
peans was led by explorers trying to
discover new plants. Druse takes us
through the history of plant gather-
ing into the influences that plants
have had on fine art, architecture
and the way we garden today.
I was especially interested in the
chapter titled "Amazing Grace." It
explains how the arrangement of
leaves and flowers in spiral patterns
can be explained mathematically.
An Italian mathematician from the
1200s whose name has been short-
ened to Fibonacci discovered what is
now called "Fibonacci Numbers." The
Golden Rectangle and Spiral created
with this sequence of numbers is not
only found in plants and nautilus
shells, but in the architecture of the
ancient Greeks, Egyptians and Ma-
yans. Leonardo Da Vinci used the
formula in his paintings and I can
see it in sunflower heads, sedums
and roses. I will look at flowers dif-
ferently from now on.
This is a coffee-table book with col-
or photos on nearly every page and
at $50 is not inexpensive, but I had
a hard time putting it down each
evening until I had read the whole
thing. "Planthropology" is available
from Clarkson Potter Publishers
and should be available at your local
bookstore.

City officials and Habitat
i volunteers filled the audience
in celebration of the 100th
home Habitat for Humanity
completed in St. Petersburg.
Councilmembers worked on the
home, including Childs Park
/ representative Wengay "Newt"
S Newton.
,e "I hope you will enjoy this home
and raise your kids and grandkids
in it so they'll have a place to call
home," Newt told the Iveys. Newt

Habitat for Humanity home. After the elected officials got their
turns at the podium, Cynthia
Ivey and her daughter stood before the crowd. The elder Ms. Ivey, who works
for a local nonprofit, thanked the community for their support. The younger Ms.
Ivey spoke next.
"We finally have a home that we can call our own, and I want to thank
everybody," the 16-year-old high school sophomore said.
"We build a lot of houses, but the day we get the homeowner in is the day we get
a home," Habitat for Humanity volunteer Jaqui Hosman told the crowd gathered
at the new home. Since 1985 Habitat for Humanity constructed 157 houses in
Pinellas, according to Communications Director Jamie Cataldo. Volunteers as
well as the future homeowners help build the homes, Cataldo added.
St. Petersburg donated the land for the 1250 square foot home to Habitat for
Humanity. Habitat for Humanity provides news homes for families that need
homes and earn no more than 80% of the area's average income. The Ivey family
will pay back a no-interest loan and Habitat for Humanity will use the mortgage
money to build more homes in the area. The Iveys also spent over 250 hours
building their home.

Child's Park New YMCA Facility


Instructor and teaching assistant Donnie Davis (Ift) looks over a puzzle that students Dominic
Sourie, age 9 and Javon Danford, 10, are working on. Instructor Cortez Livingston (rt) listens
as Lemuel Wilson, age 8, reads from the book Charlotte's Web. All three kids are from the
surrounding Child's Park community and are enrolled in the Y-Achievers program.


By Leigh Clifton

The Child's Park community got a
much needed boost last month when the
YMCA of Greater St. Petersburg and
the City of St. Petersburg joined forces
in a cooperative effort to build a brand
new YMCA facility in the Child's Park
neighborhood. Located at 691 43rd St.
South, the brand new 15,000 square foot
building also houses a Pinellas County
Public Library, an administrative
office for the Rattlers Football League,
a St. Pete Police substation and West
Care, a drug and alcohol prevention
program for teens. This YMCA branch
is a result of representatives from the
City and the YMCA asking people in the
local neighborhood what they felt was
needed for their area. The answer was
an overwhelming need for a community
center that focused on education and
academic programs for kids and adults.
This YMCA branch is not a fitness
facility, although it does have a
playground for the kids. It is more for
educational use and has ten program
rooms, including a multi-purpose room
that has microphones and a pull-down
projector screen. There are flat- screen
TVs in every room and wireless internet
throughout the building. The facility
also has a kitchen, with a refrigerator,
microwave convection oven and ice
machine. The rooms are used for
meetings, training seminars, after
school care, youth programs and even
private parties for a nominal fee.


One of the most important programs
this YMCA sponsors is the Y-Achievers.
It is an after school academic based
program for kids from Kindergarten
through Eighth grade, who may be
falling behind or are at-risk of failing a
grade. The program, partially sponsored
by the Rays Baseball Foundation and
the United Way, has certified instructors
who help the children with homework,
reading, penmanship and overall
confidence building by individualized
counseling.
"The Y-Achievers program lets these
kids get a little extra attention and
guidance with their schoolwork," she
said. "Our instructors spend a lot of time
with them personally and we have seen
an increase in their focus and grades. It
really helps keep them on track."
Another great program the YMCA offer
is the Prodigy Cultural Arts Program.
Funded by the Florida Department
of Justice, in partnership with USF,
the Prodigy program offers classes in
the arts such as music, dance, African
drumming, photography, painting,
sculpture and drawing. It is also a
viable alternative to serving time or
community service that may be imposed
when a juvenile gets in trouble with the
law. The Prodigy program at the Child's
Park location currently does not have
any juvenile offenders enrolled in the
program. The program is open to all
members of the community and is free
for all kids ages 7-17.


Another important community
focus program is F.A.B; Fit, Active,
Black, which spotlights healthy
eating and cooking classes, wellness
programs and diabetes prevention for
African-American families. The goal
is to change eating habits that can
contribute to diabetes and introduce a
healthier, more aware lifestyle. Funded
by a federal grant, F.A.B. also targets
childhood and adolescent obesity and is
currently attended by six families from
the community.
The Child's Park YMCA also boasts a
large computer lab, with 13 computers,
internet access and research tools for
people looking for jobs or to work on
their resume. It is open to all members
from 10 am to 2 pm. The Public Library
is located in the building as well,
and offers many available resources,
including several computers and
internet as well. Although not as large
as other public libraries, this particular
branch will order a book not in stock
and have it there for you within a few
days. They also accept any Pinellas
County Public Library card, which is a
nice convenience.
The YMCA is well-known for their
summer and holiday camps and has a
scholarship program that enables kids
who can't afford the fees to attend.
According to Ashley Zarle, Community
Relations Director, there are 27 Camp
summer camp sites throughout the
county, mostly located in South Pinellas
County schools. The camps have a
distinctly academic focus, usually
spending one to two hours on math and
reading daily as well as taking the kids
on the usual field trips to local museums,
skating, music and art adventures.
"By using academics in the summer
camps, we keep the children's skills
refreshed for the next school year,"
Ashley explains. "Kids have a tendency
to forget what they've learned over the
summer months when they're out of
school. By adding in the academics along
with the other fun activities, the kids
keep their minds sharp and are ready
for the next year. Ditto for the holidays.
While the kids are on Christmas vacation
or Spring Break, they can come and do
activities during those holidays and get
the jump on school when it resumes."
The Child's Park YMCA is extremely
affordable. A single member pays just
$5.00 a year; a family pays $10.00.
Child's Park YMCA is open Monday
to Saturday, hours vary. Call 727 209-
9622 for more info.

PRAYER TO THE BLESSED VIRGIN (Never
Known to Fail) Oh, most beautiful flower of
Mount Carmel, fruitful vine, splendor of Heav-
en. Blessed Mother of the Son of God, Immac-
ulate Virgin, assist me in my necessity. Oh Star
of the Sea, help me and show me here you
are my mother. Oh Holy Mary, Mother of God,
Queen of Heaven and Earth, I humbly beseech
you from the bottom of my heart to secure me
into my necessity (make request). There are
none that can withstand your power. Oh Mary,
conceived without sin, pray for us who have
recourse to thee (3) times. Holy Mary, I place
this cause in your hands (3) times. Say this
prayer for three consecutive days and then

POWERFUL PRAYER TO HOLY SPIRIT -
Holy Spirit, you who solves all problems, who
lights all roads so that I can attain my goal, you
who give me the divine gifts to forgive and for-
get a evil against me and that in all instances
of my life you are with me, I want in this short
prayer to thank you for all things and confirm
once again that I never want to be separated
from you, even in spite of all material illusions.
I wish to be with you, in eternal glory. Thank
you for your mercy toward me and mine.
