Gulfport Little League
Lease Renewed
Gulfport city council approved
the renewal of the city's lease with
Gulfport Little League. The present
lease had expired. It includes use of
Hoyt Field, Lum Atkinson Ballfields
and the concession stand at Tomlinson
Lake Park.
The city offers Little League a
reduced rent of just $1 a year and
while the program is responsible
for paying the city its share of the
electricity used, the city gives the
program a $2,000 subsidy which helps
offset this cost.
In addition to the lease renewal,
council came to a consensus to
allocate $1,200 toward the cost of a
new scoreboard ..
Band to Perform at
Get Rescued '09
The local chapter of The New
Horizons Band of Eckerd College
will perform this Saturday at Get
Rescued events in Gulfport. There
are presently over 100 New Horizon
Bands around the country. The
New Horizons program is especially


designed for musicians or "would be"
musicians over 50 years of age. Its
message is simple: "You are never
too old to learn to play a musical
instrument."
The group will be located on the
3000 block of Beach Blvd. and will
begin its first performance at 1 p.m.

Pet Food Donations
Wanted
Everyday Get Rescued get calls from
people asking them to help them feed
their pets, and these are the same
people who just a year ago never
had any problems. Due to the hard
economic times unfortunately this is
happening everyday and everywhere
there are pets who are going hungry
or get turned in to the already over
populated and struggling rescue
groups. They are asking you to help
fill their truck at Get Rescued with
unopened food for cats and dogs. All
food donations can be brought to
Pasadena Pet Motel or you can join
them February 28 in Gulfport at
Get Rescued! All donations will be
accepted and very much appreciated.

Changes Made to Gulfport General
Employee Pension Fund
On Tuesday, Gulfport city council approved changes to the General Employee
Pension Fund which were recommended by the General Employee Pension
Plan Board and approved by members participating in it.
After a review of a wide range of data and after polling members of the plan,
the board proposed an increase to the multiplier from 1.75% to 2% through
employee or member contributions. An increase in the multiplier increases
the amount that is received at the time of the retirement. The increase will
be funded by members of the plan and will increase the multiplier by 0.25%
at a cost to the employees of 2.7% of gross wages in pre-tax dollars collected
through payroll deductions. Since all costs are assumed by members, there is
no financial impact to the city.

Tiffany McElheran, Tampa, law
student at Stetson: "I feel that
the governors are acting in the best
interest of their state and that the
states should not be required to ac-
cept the aid. The governors may not
feel that the stimulus package will
address issues within their state
and provide the help it is intended
to. The package specifies exactly how
the funds are to be allocated in each
state and the governors probably do
not feel that the specific programs
in the package are the type of assis-
tance those states are in need of. The
stimulus package was passed hastily
and I feel additional information and
time was needed to in order to ad-
dress the concerns of our nation. I do
not believe that throwing money at
the situation is necessarily the best
way to handle the problems within
our country. This bill requires a lot
of money from tax payers which may
create more problems in the long
run and may not create enough jobs
in the short term to make a substan-
tial difference in our economy. I am
concerned that this decision may af-
fect our country negatively through
debt. These concerns will be handled
by my generation as well as my five
month old son's generation and
therefore, legislatures should have
been allotted more time to review
the package before being required to
make an uneducated decision. The
governors that do not want to accept
the stimulus package are concerned
with the repercussions and "strings
attached" that may arise after the
package goes into effect."

Jeff Lane, St. Pete, retired St. Pete
Times: "What's the point? Have they
now got jobs for the people that are
unemployed in their states? Are they
trying to say that "everything's ok in
my -1.1I. I think their constituents
would disagree with the governor's
reasons for refusing that money. I
think they're just doing it for the at-
tention; they're obviously trying to
set themselves apart from their col-
leagues.... But how will that benefit
them? If I was unemployed, I would
be very upset if my governor turned
down federal money that could help
me in my situation. Are they trying to
tell us that there isn't an unemploy-
ment problem in their state? If I was
a Republican, I would be really mad
because the governors that are re-
fusing benefits are just trying to set
themselves apart for future political
aspirations.

Maurine Robinson, Gulfport,
artist: "I think the whole bunch of
them are hypocrites, because every
one of them will protest about how
the stimulus money won't help any-
one, and then they'll still take the
money anyway! It's all political;
they're just being so difficult because
their man didn't get elected. The Re-
publicans should be more concerned
about the welfare of the country
than what party it is that's trying
to help it. Shame on them! Governor
Schwarzenegger, of California, is a
Republican married to a Kennedy
Democrat and even HE said that we
have to worry about the country and
do what's right for it, rather than try
and embarrass the President. Put
the country before politics."

Use Public Session
Properly
Dear Editor: I was under the im-
pression that the first and third Tues-
day of the month was scheduled for
City Council meetings in Gulfport,
but perhaps I have had bouts of con-
fusion for the last month or so. In
attending and/or watching the last
couple of meetings, I was unsure if I
was at a Council meeting, an election
rally or a candidate bashing rally.
I understand Public Session as to be
for topics not on the agenda for that
meeting. I don't understand it to be
intended for what some residents are
utilizing it for.
Every election period is amazing to
me. Residents who are not the most
active citizens, then decide to run for
office are suddenly everywhere dur-
ing a candidacy. Supporters are not
hard to figure out either and that is
fine, as it is one's right as a citizen.
However, as I recall, it is not ap-
propriate to distribute candidates'
literature, buttons or views in a gov-
ernment building that is not rented
out for that particular purpose. I
also do not believe it is appropriate
to be allowed to slander candidates'
with views one does not agree with.
I also do not believe it is appropriate
to continue on that path after being
redirected by the City Attorney twice
in one three minute session. Public
Session is not really intended to "get
back at" one whose views the citizens
have taken as personal attacks, as
our Council Members are supposed
to represent more than one interest
group.


There's an old saying of "You can
catch more bees with honey than
vinegar". Perhaps some of these
candidates' supporters need to heed
that advice, as vinegar leaves a sour
taste. You may be loud and mighty
but the silent majority still prevails.
We would like some respect and hu-
manity brought back to our Council
meetings. We would like it to happen
quicker than the chicken prevailed!
Jeri Reed


What Happened to
Library Manners?
Dear Editor: I just recently visited
the Gulfport Public library. It was the
loudest library I have ever been in
my whole life. Kids and adults talk-
ing loud, cell phones going off con-
stantly. You will also notice that the
furniture is so loud when you have
to move it. Even the carts they use
are noisy. I was so surprised because
I recently went to the Pinellas Point
branch and it was perfectly quiet the
way we all expect a library should
be. I would like to see an article pub-
lished about this situation if possible.
I understand that in this community
there are seniors who have hearing
problems and that's understandable.
If you could possibly comment on this
I think I might not be the only one
who will thank you.
Do they not teach library manners
in school anymore?
Daniel Carpenter

You & THE




Why Buy-Sell
Agreements are
Important (Part II)
ENTITY AND CROSS PURCHASE
AGREEMENTS
The entity-purchase agreement is a
contract within the company, not one
among the partners or their families.
In the case of XYZ, Ms. Smith and Mr.
Gonzales would enter into a binding
agreement with XYZ for the purchase
and sale of their respective interests.
Upon death, disability, retirement
or resignation, Ms. Smith and Mr.
Gonzales are obligated to sell their
stock to XYZ and XYZ is obligated to
buy that stock.
To fund this agreement, XYZ can
obtain life insurance contracts on
both Ms. Smith and Mr. Gonzales.
XYZ pays the premiums and is the
owner and beneficiary of the policies.


When Mr. Gonzales dies, his stock
passes to his estate. At the same
time, the insurance company pays a
death benefit to XYZ as beneficiary of
the policy.
Pursuant to the entity-purchase
agreement that Ms. Smith and Mr.
Gonzales entered into with XYZ,
Mr. Gonzales' estate will transfer
his entire interest in XYZ back to
XYZ in return for the cash payout on
Mr. Gonzales insurance policy. The
entity-purchase agreement allows
the value of the stock for estate tax
purposes to be determined and gives
the Gonzales family the liquidity they
need.
Entity-purchase agreements do
have some disadvantages. There
will often be a build up of the value
in the life insurance policy which
may, along with the policy death
benefits, be subject to the claims of
corporate creditors and susceptible to
alternative minimum tax.
In a cross-purchase agreement
arrangement, XYZ is not a party to
the agreement. Instead, Ms. Smith
obtains a life insurance policy insuring
Mr. Gonzales. Ms. Smith pays the

premiums and is both owner and
beneficiary of the policy. Mr. Gonzales
does likewise. Under the terms of
the cross-purchase agreement, each
agrees to buy the other's stock in the
event of death using the proceeds of
the life insurance policy.
When Mr. Gonzales dies, the
insurance company pays the death
benefits to Ms. Smith that she uses
to buy back Mr. Gonzales' interest in
XYZ from Mr. Gonzales' estate. Again,
the Gonzales family gets the liquidity
they need to settle his estate.
A cross-purchase agreement carries
with it several advantages. First,
it insulates cash values and death
benefits from the imposition of
corporate alternative minimum tax
and corporate creditors. Second,
it provides a step-up in cost basis
for the surviving shareholder and
the decedent. These are significant
benefits when the surviving
shareholder intends to sell the
business following the death of the
other partner.
One clear disadvantage of cross-
purchase agreements occurs if the
partners who are entering into the
agreement are of different ages
because the younger partner will pay
more to insure the older partner.

Confessions of a
Dog Abuser
What do the following comments
have in common?
"I've given her tongue lashings that
would wake the dead and ostracized
her to the point of feeling guilty like
an abusive jailer."
"I've bitten her on the neck and
stared her straight in the eyes."
"I use a pronged training collar,
which makes a world of difference."
"When she goes after my hand, I
push it farther into her mouth."
"What can I do? I have scolded her,
slapped her, isolated her, but noth-
ing seems to work."
Answer: They are all confessions of
dog abusers.
These were nonchalant comments
dropped by ignorant people in the


course of explaining to me the prob-
lem with their dog. What they don't
realize is that the dog is not the
problem.
Their dog does not obey. His be-
havior is embarrassing. They are
frustrated. Exhausted. At their wits'
end. And on and on. But none of the
dogs subjected to the abuse laid out
above were ever trained. In all fair-
ness, how high should the expecta-
tions be?
One woman said, "He won't come
to me."
I asked her whether he had been
trained to "come."
She said, "Well, I bought him.
Shouldn't he come to me?"
A signature on a check means noth-
ing to a dog -- and neither do the
words "come" and "no" unless you
teach him.
None of the "techniques" quoted

above constitute teaching or train-
ing. Most of them were bad ideas
pulled from the Internet in a mis-
guided attempt to fix a serious prob-
lem. If you were diagnosed with
cancer, would you turn to the Inter-
net to nail down a treatment plan?
Would you heed the advice found
on Orville's Free Oncology blog? Of
course not. You'd turn to a doctor, a
professional, a specialist.
We're not treating cancer here,
but we are dealing with situations
that do become dangerous when not
properly managed.
In dealing with dogs, our voices and
hands are tools to shower love, praise
and affection. The voice should be
pleasant; the hands, soothing. This
is how we earn the trust of our ca-
nine companions, and it usually isn't
hard to do. They want to please us.
They're ready to trust us. They love
to love us. Far and away it is we who
do not readily know how to love.
Stepping on paws, pulling tails,
whacking noses with newspaper,
shoving fists down throats, yelling,
shocking, isolating, kicking, hitting
-- all abuse.
I can understand ignorance; not ev-
eryone knows how to raise and train
a dog. That's why I have a job.
What I can't understand or condone
is abuse disguised as dog training.
The dog learns nothing except to
fear you -- rightfully so. And you ac-
complish nothing except to destroy
the beautiful spirit of an animal and
let loose on the world yet another
fearful dog.
Why so many dog bites in the Unit-
ed States? Why so many dogs in our
shelters? I'll give you a hint: The dog
isn't the problem.

SPCA Pet of the Week

EI am a 1 year old chocolate Labrador mix. I am very friendly,
energetic, happy, and full of life! One of my favorite toys is a
squeaky ball! I love treats, so I make sure I take them from
lyou nicely. I know how to give paw, sit, lay down, and fetch!
Please come to the SPCA Tampa Bay and visit me! For more information on
Norman, please stop by or call 586-3591. Norman would prefer to go to a home
with a fenced yard and with children older than age 10.


Adopt a Greyhound
Meet Louie, a red fawn greyhound who's always ready for
fun. Louie loves daily walks and is always up for playtime
- he even tries to get the cats to play! He would thrive in a
home with other fun loving dogs (small ones included.). When
he's not playing, he loves to lie by you and be with people.
He's a real charmer! Louie does stairs well, walks well on
lead, and would enjoy a home with older (12+) children due
to his playful nature. If you would like to meet Louie or any of our other grey-
hounds, please call Greyhound Pets of America at 595-7852, visit our website:
greyhoundpets.com, or see us at the Tyrone PetSmart on most Sundays from
noon to 2 p.m. Call first if you want to meet a specific dog.

t1t 0oroscoDe Guide


PISCES (Feb. 19-March
20). Putting in the extra work hours
this week helps you live in the
manner you prefer. You don't mind
working a little harder to make your
surroundings unique. You value the
things that are hard to come by,
rare or expensive. The same goes for
your personal life. Someone elusive
captures your attention Friday.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). You
may be the warrior of the zodiac,
but your heart is tender and
compassionate this week. You'll wind
up in a position to protect others
from the harshness of the world. You
will shield loved ones from rejection,
soften strong news and put a positive
spin on everything that unfolds. You
and yours are happier as a result.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). So
much is going on for you these days,
and it will help you learn to make
an elegant exit. Whether it's the
closing of a deal, a conversation or an
entire relationship, long drawn-out
endings are uncomfortable. Resolve
to make all your endings swift and
smooth, ideally without explanation
or apology.
GEMINI (clI.,y 21-June 21). You
want attention, but not too much
attention. Figuratively speaking,
the red carpet treatment would be
too chaotic -- people clamoring to
capture what you represent instead
of understanding who you really are.
You'd rather the world be your stage,
where your audience sits politely to
take in your performance.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Just
as individuals tend to resonate at
a particular mood, groups of people
radiate a vibration that is more or less
the average of the individual tone of
each person in the group. Gravitate
to the gatherings that seem rich in
warmth and lively humor. You belong
where there is an abundance of good
cheer.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Work is
on the upswing. An influx of money


brings with it new hope. Friends
at a distance will make plans to be
with you. You'll soon learn the small
things that have changed in the lives
of others and be inspired by the way
others maneuver life. All the sharing
you do bodes well for the future of
your relationships.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). There is a
never-ending supply of love available
to you this week. Sweet gestures
from friends, family closeness and
romantic intrigue will contribute to
your confidence. When your personal
life hums a happy melody, the other
elements click into place -- like
fulfilling work and enough money to
cover the bills.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Your
idea is finally getting wings, though
it won't fly by itself just yet. Sure,
it may be tricky to get this project
off the ground, but it's not rocket
science. The obvious methods work
for the first few steps, and then you'll
have to do some research. Assemble
the perfect team to complement your
talents.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Social
graces will help you get where you
want to go this week. You teach
yourself a little bit more about
successful human relations with
every encounter. Mirror others. Meet
them at their pace. You're a sought-
after partner in fun on Friday and
Saturday. When a Leo extends an
invitation, laughs are guaranteed.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21).
Style matters -- not a little bit but a
lot. You'll be assessing the impact of
your current look and making some
decisions about how you would like
to be perceived in the future. Put
more thought than money into this
process. A few strong choices are
all you need to achieve your desired
effect.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19).
It may seem that people approach
from a needy place. Family asks for
your involvement in things you don't


think have much to do with you. A
romantic partner craves reassurance
of your love. It's all because you're so
strong. Luckily for all, you are also
compassionate and likely to help
others feel more secure.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18).
You have a talent for taking care of
business. A deal that didn't work out
in the past will get a total makeover.
Be willing to change the cast of
characters involved. Venture out to
different areas. You're wiser now
and more able to add value to your
offerings. The new way works so
much better.
ThisWeek's Birthdays: You've come
a long way, and it's time to celebrate
your wins. There's a glamour about
you as you gather with friends and
family this week. Being the center
of attention boosts your confidence.
Let the high carry you into a new
arena. The next 10 weeks show you
extending your reach and learning
to mingle well among a different
set of people. You'll showcase your
talent in May, perhaps in the form
of a presentation. Financial means
are more abundant in June. A July
vacation is divine.

This N' That in South Pasadena
By Sibylle Stajich
Drug Therapy
"An Aspirin a Day to Keep Stroke Away" was the seminar given by Pharm
D's N. Trecia Swanston and Viet Dang on Tuesday, February 17 at 12:30 in
the Boca Ciega Room of Palms of Pasadena Hospital. After a light lunch, the
capacity audience heard the above mentioned program of Stroke Series II and
was told that 90% of strokes are preventable. Introduced by Barbara Rowland,
RN of the Emergency Room and Stroke Coordinator, the audience was given
definitions and causes of various strokes. The speakers stressed medications
and what stroke risk factors can be changed, treated or controlled. Various
types of aspirin were mentioned and indications when they should be or not
be taken as well as possible side effects to observe. The two ladies spoke very
effectively of all phases and answered various questions the audience had. The
next seminar will be held on the third Tuesday of March.

100 Week Countdown to 100 Years!

Gulfport Centennial Countdown Continues!


What was the name of this popular excursion boat and where was it headed?
Answer next week.


Think you know the answer?
Send us an email with your answer, name and
phone number to News@theGabber.com


In just 85 weeks, Gulfport will
celebrate the centennial of its incorpora-
tion, October 12, 1910. We'll be remind-
ing you every week with an interesting
old photograph from the collection of the
Historical Museum. See if you can iden-
tify the people, places, and above all the
decade of each picture as it comes along.
To make it a little bit of a challenge, we
won't publish the correct caption until the
following week.

LAST WEEK'S ANSWER:
Last week we showed a picture of old
Pasadena Golf Course clubhouse, built
after many stops and starts during the
Booms and Busts of the 1920s. During
the Second World War, when the course
was given over to grazing cattle, the
clubhouse was used as an officers' club.

By Scott Lafee
Scared to Death
Last month, police in Charlotte,
N.C., charged a would-be bank rob-
ber with first-degree murder after he
burst into the house of a 79-year-old
woman, resulting in her death.
After botching an attempted rob-
bery, 20-year-old Larry Whitfield
broke into and hid out in the home of
Mary Parnell. Whitfield did not touch
Parnell, but the woman died after
suffering a heart attack. Prosecutors
say Whitfield is guilty of murder be-
cause he, in effect, scared Parnell to
death.
Scientific American asked Martin A.
Samuels, a neurologist at Brigham
and Women's Hospital in Boston, if
it's actually physically possible to do
that.
Samuels says yes, absolutely. What
happens, he said, is that the body's
natural flight-or-fight response is


triggered, resulting in increased
heart rate, more blood flow to mus-
cles, dilated pupils and other physi-
ological responses.
The body is flooded with the hor-
mone adrenaline, which in large
amounts can be toxic, damaging
internal organs. In the case of the
heart, adrenaline keeps the heart
constantly contracting -- it can't re-
lax and begins to beat irregularly un-
til, quite suddenly, it simply fails.
Though not yet proven, this may
be what happened to Parnell. But
death can result in other situations
less scary or life-threatening. One ex-
ample: The case of a golfer who hit a
hole in one, turned to his partner and
said, "I can die now," then dropped
dead.

Cash Prizes Take No
Toll on Benefits
Q: I receive Social Security disability
benefits. I am a finalist in a contest
where I could win $100,000. Will I
lose my disability benefits if I win all
that money?
A: If you are indeed receiving SOCIAL
SECURITY disability benefits, then
you will keep those benefits even if
you win all that money.
Social Security is considered an
"entitlement" program, as opposed to
a welfare program. In other words,


you worked and earned your Social
Security disability benefits. So you
keep those benefits whether you have
$1 in the bank or $100,000!
But many people confuse the Social
Security disability program with
the Supplemental Security Income,
or SSI, disability program. SSI is a
federal welfare program managed by
the Social Security Administration.
If you are receiving SSI disability
benefits from SSA, then winning all
that money will make you ineligible
for the program. Like any welfare
program, SSI is intended for people
who are poor and need money. If you

win $100,000, you aren't poor and
you don't need money -- at least for a
while anyway.
So for your sake, I hope you are getting
Social Security disability benefits and
I hope you win the contest!
Q: I am 67 years old and get about
$2,000 per month in Social Security
retirement benefits. My wife is 61 and
has been getting SSI for several years.
She currently gets about $1,100 per
month. Is there some point -- soon
I hope -- when she can start getting
some of my Social '4.-, uVi I% '
A: Yes -- when you die! So I really
don't think you want that to be
anytime soon.
I purposely placed your question
following the first one because
it further illustrates the point I
made about people confusing the
Supplemental Security Income, or
SSI, with Social Security disability
benefits.
Your wife must be getting Social
Security disability benefits, not SSI.
The reason I know that is because SSI
simply doesn't pay benefits as high as
$1,100 per month.
Because her $1,100 monthly Social
Security disability benefit is more than
the maximum spousal supplement
she'd be due on your account, which is
50 percent of your rate, or $1,000, that
means she isn't eligible for a portion
of your Social Security -- while you're
still living.
But whenyou die, .i-- u mii i gi's before
she dies, then your wife could be due a
widow's supplement up to 100 percent
of your rate. In other words, she'd
keep getting her $1,100 per month
disability benefit but would also start
getting $900 in widow's benefits to
take her up to your $2,000 rate.
Q: Can older people get SSI, or is
it just a Social Security disability
supplement?
A: As I alluded to in the prior two
answers, SSI is not a Social Security
supplement. SSI is a separate and
distinct government program that
has nothing to do with Social Security
other than the fact that it happens
to be run by the Social Security
Administration.
And, yes, older people can get
Supplemental Security Income. SSI is
a federal welfare program that pays
monthly benefits to the elderly poor,
folks 65 and older, and to poor people
under 65 who are disabled.

How To Get Money for
Your Used Clothing
I hate to be the one to bring it up,
but you have about seven weeks to
file your federal income taxes for
tax year 2008. Midnight on April 15,
2009, is the deadline. If you itemize
your return, I trust you are working
hard now to determine each and ev-
ery tax deduction to which you are
entitled. Now more than ever, you
want to make sure you are paying
only the taxes you are required to
pay and not 1 cent more.
When you itemize your tax return,
you are allowed to deduct the fair
market value of the items you donate
to charity. How much should you de-
duct? If you overstate the value, you
risk an audit, penalties and interest.
If you underestimate, you pay more
taxes than you should.
I..n.-y For Your Used Clothing --
Tax Year 2008" is a 64-page booklet
that provides uncertain taxpayers
with certified valuations for more
than 750 clothing and household
items commonly donated to charity,
in accordance with the current Inter-
nal Revenue Service guidelines. This
is a comprehensive guide to valuing
your non-cash charitable contribu-
tions for the tax return you will file
for tax year 2008. Every year, this
booklet is revised and updated to re-
flect the current year's values.
If you itemize your deductions on
your annual income tax return,
this book will save you hundreds of
dollars. It is also a workbook that
explains six simple steps for docu-
menting donations and tells how to
receive a tax windfall without wait-
ing to file a tax return.
I have relied on certified public ac-
countant William Lewis (author of
this book) to help me assign market
values to the items my husband and
I donate to charities. We can docu-
ment that we have been able to de-
duct thousands from our tax returns
over the years. Every year, we do-
nate many books and magazines to
our local public library, all of which
are deductible. When donated to an
IRS-recognized charitable organiza-
Gabber February 26 March 4, 2009


tion, clothes and household items
in good condition are deductible, as
well.
Because this booklet saved my fam-
ily so much money on our taxes, not
to mention saving us from countless
headaches, we began offering this
resource to our readers for sale in
the Debt-Proof Living bookstore. Be-
lieve me; if you itemize, the cost of
this book is the best money you will


spend. It not only will save you hun-
dreds on your taxes but also comes
with an audit protection guarantee,
which, in my book, is priceless.
The cover price of In1 n.-y For Your
Used Clothing -- Tax Year 2008" is
$25. However, we have arranged
for a discounted price of just $20 for
I'..-'ld.y Cheapskate" read-
ers. Order online at www.
DebtProofLiving.com (click on
"Bookstore"), or call 1-800-550-
3502, Monday through Friday,
9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Pacific time.

anr Candu
ByK CathySaJsk


After almost 20 years on
the force, Gulfport Chief of
Police Curt Willocks retired
a few weeks ago, naming
senior lieutenant Robert
Vincent as his replacement.
I wonder how many Gulf-
portians realize how hard
Willocks worked to create
a safe city and how much
of Gulfport's national ap-
peal has ties to that feeling
of safety. Willocks' leader-
ship had residents leaving
their cars unlocked, their
doors and windows open,
and money lying out on the
kitchen table. These little
signs that people felt safe,
of course, gave him fits and
he preached like a minister
at a Baptist revival tent
to get people to stop doing
these things, but under his
watch most Gulfportians
felt safe.
Armchair bureaucrats and
political hopefuls complain
that Gulfport's police force
doesn't have enough to do.
Perhaps. When I lived in
Gulfport I felt safer than
anywhere else I'd ever
lived, and when I moved
to St. Petersburg I lived in
a neighborhood where the
police had way too much to
do. Trust me, you want the
former. Parts of Gulfport lie
no more than a block from
some of the higher crime
areas of neighboring St.
Petersburg, yet Gulfport
has yet to succumb to crack
dens and trap houses. Yes,
Gulfport has crime, but
what you find right across
49th Street makes even
the "worst" parts of the
city look like a scene from
Leave it to Beaver.


Given Willocks' success
fighting crime in Gulfport,
I wonder if Gulfport's act-
ing city manager Jim
O'Reilly will overturn his
decision to let Vincent lead
the pack. I like O'Reilly a
great deal, but the whole
situation whereby an act-
ing city manager gets to
choose the new chief of po-
lice evokes images of Dr.
Seuss' elephant Horton,
who sat on Mayzie's egg
all winter while she took a
much-needed break.
I believe council made
a good choice in naming
O'Reilly acting city man-
ager --how long ago was
that, now?-- but I also be-
lieve that council has their
collective head in the sand
about allowing this busi-
ness of "acting" to continue
apparently indefinitely.
Why, I wonder, did council
so quickly hire a new clerk
but not a city manager? Is
it because they are so ar-
rogant as to believe they
don't need a manager? Do
they believe they know
enough about finance and
risk management and
staffing issues that they
don't need a city manager
who has training in these
areas? Is it because they
so undervalue the posi-
tion that they don't think
it matters if it's done by
an acting or a permanent
manager? Is it to save a
couple of bucks? I'm almost
entirely certain that those
scenarios couldn't possibly
be the case.
Many people, including
some on Council, don't be-
lieve the city manager runs


the city, but a city man-
ager knows more about the
workings of the city and the
citizens than any elected of-
ficial. They're the clearing-
house for every thing that
happens and they handle
things that no elected of-
ficial even knows needs
handling much less is qual-
ified to do. Don't misunder-
stand, Gulfport's council is
passionate about the city
and I believe that even the
ones I disagree with vehe-
mently care about the city.
I just don't think they un-
derstand how insignificant
they are to the workings of
the city. They can say what
direction they want to take
the city but they cannot
plot the course. That's the
city manager's job. Council
can say "go north" and they
may know how to read the
chart, but they don't neces-
sarily know how to use a
sextant or man the helm.
Let's get back to the police
department. According to
the city charter, if a coun-
cil member even suggests
a replacement for Willocks
or any other city employee
they're committing a 2nd
degree misdemeanor (sec-
tion 305), so that means the
acting city manager gets to
decide who can best lead a
group of men and women
who get paid almost noth-
ing to put their bodies be-
tween a bullet and you, if
needed. Willocks thought
Vincent was the best man
for the job.
Is it wise for council to
urge O'Reilly to find a dif-
ferent chief right now? I
have no doubt that O'Reilly
acts with the best interests
of the city in mind, but is
he the right one to make
that decision? If council
continues to fail to make
the only move they have


the power to make, which
is hire a new city manager
or offer O'Reilly the job
permanently, he will have
to do things that he really
shouldn't have to do. The
city can't have all "acting"
department heads, and
O'Reilly possesses more
than the average amount
of intelligence, so very soon
he'll probably try to stabi-
lize the city.
How fair is it to expect
O'Reilly to sit on this egg?
When another city man-
ager takes the helm, he'll
be back on level ground
with the people he's man-
aged, but his decisions will
linger. Not that many mis-
sion critical decisions get
made over the course of a
few weeks, but O'Reilly's
manned the helm for
months. What if the new
city manager doesn't like
O'Reilly's decisions for po-
lice or fire chief? Those po-
sitions are at the pleasure
or displeasure of the city
manager, so the new man-
ager could simply let them
go. Is that fair to the people
O'Reilly chooses?
Most importantly, how
long can council reason-
ably expect O'Reilly to act
like Horton, taking care
of someone else's egg? In
the end, Horton hatches
the egg and the baby bird
looks a lot like Horton.
The same thing will hap-
pen to Gulfport: it's going
to have O'Reilly's mark on
it. Council either needs to
decide that's a good thing
and make O'Reilly the
city manager for keeps or
start actively looking for a
new city manager. If coun-
cil chooses, to quote Neil
Peart, not to decide, they
still have made a choice.

By Leigh Clifton
Latavia Dempsey goes airborne for two in the North Port game last week. The Lady Pirates
advance to the semi finals this week after beating Tampa Jefferson Saturday night. They
will be meeting Nova High at the Lakeland Center on Wednesday night at 8:30.
The 28-3 Boca Ciega Lady Pirates rolled over opponent North Port High last
Thursday then trounced Tampa Jefferson on Saturday night 68-51 to advance
to the Women's Final Four High School basketball Championship. Their next
opponent is Nova High, also 28-3, from Davie, Florida, and they meet on
Wednesday night at 8:30 at the Lakeland Center .This will be the first match
up for both teams and Coach Will White says the girls have been studying
game tapes and checking up in Nova's stats.
Any normal team would be a bit intimidated, but the Lady Pirates are chock
full of talent; in the Tampa Jefferson game Tori Stephens had a blazing hot
hand, tallying 30 points, including six three-pointers to lead the Pirates in
scoring. Missy Schmidt pulled down 12 rebounds and Latavia Dempsey had
eight points in the third quarter. Tamara Taylor contributed 17 points, includ-
ing eight of nine from the free throw line. The girls were down 9-1 in the first
quarter, with Tampa Jefferson opening up an early lead but battled back in
true Pirate style. They held Tampa Jefferson guard Jade Givens to just eight
points, well below her average 16 points a game
"They got a slight jump on us early," Coach White said. "But we were able to
compose ourselves and by the end of the first quarter, we had taken the lead
and never looked back."
If the Lady Pirates beat Nova Wednesday night, they advance Friday night
and play at the Lakeland Center again for the State title. That game is set for
7pm. This is it, girls...play like the warriors you've been all season. Take the
State title... You deserve it.
