Stetson Law Honors
Lee Roy Selmon
Stetson University College of Law
honored football legend Lee Roy
Selmon for his years of community
service with its inaugural Tower
Award during a scholarship gala on
May 2.
The Tower Award recognizes those
who reached the pinnacle of their
careers and have made outstanding
contributions to the Tampa Bay
community. "I am humbled to be
selected as Stetson's first Tower
Award recipient," said Selmon, the
first Tampa Bay Buccaneer inducted
into the NFL Hall of Fame. "With all
of the joys I have had in life, I did not
get here alone. This award represents
those very special people who help us
to become the very best that we can
be."
The event was held to raise funds
for law student scholarships. As
the Tower Award recipient, Selmon
also designated a portion of the
proceeds to his preferred charity,
the USF Foundation Partnership for
Athletics.
"I was the recipient of a student
athletic scholarship at Oklahoma


University, and I can attest that it
made a big difference in my life,
Selmon said. "Scholarships make a
big difference in the lives of young
people."
Selmon has been recognized as NFL
Defensive Player of the Year, Bucs'
Rookie of the Year and the team's
Most Valuable Player. He was named
to the College Football Hall of Fame,
the GTE Academic All-America Hall
of Fame, and the National Football
Foundation Hall of Fame. In 1999,
the Crosstown Expressway was
named in his honor. Selmon was
a three-time All-American at the
University of Oklahoma, where he
devoted an average of 10 hours per
week to volunteer projects.
Selmon rose totheposition of athletic
director at the University of South
Florida and now serves as president
of the USF Foundation Partnership
for Athletics. He also founded the
Lee Roy Selmon's restaurant chain.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers General
Manager Mark Dominik served as
guest speaker, and the emcee for the
evening was Fox 13 anchor Cynthia
Smoot.

Tom Rinaldi, Gulfport: "I shop at
Walgreens because that's where my
fiance gets her prescriptions. It's
close; right down the street. Some-
times I can get office supplies there
like pens and pencils and other stuff
for school they may have on sale. I'm
at Stetson so I often need those types
of things. As to grocery store, I shop
at Publix because the meat selection
and quality is better. But Publix's
prices have gone up a lot, especially
now that Albertsons closed down.
It seems like they're a lot more ex-
pensive now. Sweet Bay seems to be
even more expensive than Publix at
this point. But for cheeses, I always
go to Spyros, the Greek deli across
the street from Publix. They have
the best imported cheeses around,
like Feta from France, Belgium and
Greece. I also get fresh produce there
once in a while. But the cheese selec-
tion is really outstanding."

Linda Lukyanov, Gulfport: "I
shop at CVS because it's right in the
parking lot across from where I work.
I can walk over there on my break. I
shop at Publix because it's clean and
the prices are as good as any place
else. I don't like Sweet Bay because
their prices aren't as good on the
items I buy. Publix seems to have the
better prices on the items I shop for
the most."


Hannah McKnight, Gulfport: "I'd
rather go to CVS, because I think
they're cheaper than Walgreens, but
I shop at Walgreens because it's clos-
er. If I can get to CVS, I'll use the cou-
pons they offer; the coupons make a
lot of items more reasonable. I gener-
ally shop at Publix, but I do think the
meat selection is better than most,
but still expensive. But Publix is
usually reasonable and will usually
have a great deal on seafood. If you
buy things like crab legs or shrimp;
they'll steam them for you for free. I
don't have to buy the seasonings or
anything. That makes it really con-
venient for me. I don't shop at Sweet
Bay; I just don't like it and I think
they're really expensive."


James Nagy, Gulfport: "I go mostly
to Sweet Bay for groceries and Wal-
greens for prescriptions and small
stuff. Sometimes they have good
deals on sodas and soft drinks. I
have three kids and believe me; we
shop everywhere if there's a bargain
or something's on sale. A lot of time,
Sweet Bay will have a great sale on
chicken so I buy a lot of it. Publix has
the best red meats and the best se-
lection, but they're a bit expensive. I
even go to Winn Dixie up at Tyrone
Plaza when they have the "buy one,
get one free" offers, because we have
to do everything we can to economize.
I read the sales circulars every week.
I shop around. Sometimes, we even
go to the Dollar Store, which will
have soft drinks and Pepsi for about
a third less than the regular stores.
I can also get deodorant, soaps and
other household stuff for very cheap.
It's worth the cost of gas to shop like
that; some days I'll shop at three or
four different stores, because each
has something different on sale that
I need. I know a lot of people go to
Walmart, but I wouldn't buy their
meat; the quality just isn't as good
as the other stores. You also walk out
of there having spent twice as much.
I will go to Publix for red meat, be-
cause the always seem to have the
best quality and it's fresh. I use to go
to Kmart for a lot of stuff; I'm going to
miss them. But what we really need
is a grocery store back in Gulfport. I
miss the old Winn Dixie."

We Owe Them a Lot
Dear Editor: On Saturday, May
16, it will be Armed Forces Day. In
1944, 16,535,000 Americans were in
uniform. That was, of course, World
War II and 16,129,000 survived.
According to the US Department of
Veterans Affairs, about 400,000 die
each year. By September 30, there
will be 2,889,000 living World War
II veterans. The estimate is based on
the fact that nearly 1100 die each day.
On September 30, 2021, there will be
an estimated 158,000 World War II
veterans still alive. It is sad but true
that the WWII veterans will soon be
gone. We must recognize them while
they are still here. Your neighbor, if
he or she is 83 or older, is probably a
WWII veteran.
World War I (1917-1918), 4,744,000
fought in that war, supposedly the
war to end all wars. 1,116,000 were
killed. As of July 1, 1998, 4,800 were


still living, but it's now 2009, and at
last count that number is down to 0.
The Korean Conflict (1950-1955)
"The forgotten War" 6,807,000 were
there, 55,000 gave their lives to stop
the spread of communism. In July
1995 the Korean War Memorial
was dedicated in Washington, D.C.
Inscribed on the granite slab is
"Our Nation Honors Her Sons and
Daughters Who answered the Call to
Defend a Country They Never Knew
and a People They Never Met".
The Vietnam Era (1964-1975)
9,200,000 with 109,000 dead. The
Gulf War 38,000 and 9,000 dead. We
now have Afghanistan and Iraq. Yes
we are at war, in Iraq the toll for our
young men killed as of May 2 was
4,284. We offer only our prayers and
hope they will soon return home.
We owe a lottotheArmed Forcespast
and present. God bless America.

Tai Chi at the Sunshine
Senior Center
The City of St. Petersburg Sunshine
"Senior" Center, 330 Fifth Street N.,
offers a tal chi class taught by Steve
Nixon on Friday mornings from
8:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. The ancient art
of tal chi has been proven to reduce
stress and improve balance and
overall health. It is a noncompetitive,
self-paced system of gentle physical
exercise and stretching by performing
a series of postures or movements
in a slow, graceful manner. Each
posture flows into the next without
pausing. Anyone, regardless of age
or physical ability, can practice tai
chi as it emphasizes technique over
strength. Classes are a bargain at
only $12 per month or $4 per class
with a current $10 annual Recreation
registration card. Call 893-7101 for
more information.

YoU &L THE


rLAW

How Should My
Business Be Set Up?
(Part 2)
In our last article, we examined
together the general legal require-
ments of a sole proprietorship and
general partnership. In this article,
we will examine the general legal as-
pects of a limited partnership and a
Florida Corporation.
A. Limited Partnership
1. A limited partnership is similar to
a general partnership. The primary
difference is that some partners are
designated as "limited" partners and,
as such, are normally not personally
liable for the debts and obligations
of the partnership, except to the ex-
tent of their contribution of capital
to the partnership. A limited partner
is a passive investor, and is prohib-
ited from participating actively in
the management of the partnership
business. If a limited partner par-
ticipates in management, she/he can
lose the benefit of limited liability
and, instead, be treated as a general
partner for purposes of determining
liability for partnership debts and
obligations.
2. A limited partnership must have
at least one general partner and at
least one limited partner. The gen-
eral partner of a limited partnership
has unlimited liability for the part-
nership's debts and obligations.
3. Like a general partnership, the
income of a limited partnership is
passed through the partners, and re-
ported on their individual income tax
returns.
4. A limited partnership is orga-
nized by filing a written certificate of
limited partnership in the Office of
the Secretary of State in Tallahassee,
Florida. Normally, the limited part-
ners are specified in the certificate
of limited partnership and in a sepa-
rate limited partnership agreement,
which may be more detailed than the
certificate of limited partnership. A
Florida limited partnership must file
an annual report and pay an annual
fee to the Florida Secretary of State,


and receive a certificate of authority
to conduct business as a limited part-
nership.
B. Corporation
1. A corporation is a separate legal
entity or "person" for purposes of both
state law and federal income tax law.
A corporation may be formed by any
number of individuals, other corpora-
tions, or other entities.
2. The owners of a corporation are
"shareholders". Normally, business
policies are dictated by a board of
directors, which is selected by the
shareholders. In Florida, a corpora-
tion may have as few as one director.
Normally, directors are elected annu-
ally, at an annual meeting of share-
holders.
3. Normally, the routine operations
of the corporation are managed by
the corporation's officers, who are
elected periodically by the board of
directors. In Florida, a corporation
must have a president, secretary,
and treasurer, and may have one or
more vice presidents or assistant of-
ficers. One person may hold tow (2)
or more offices.
4. Corporations are required to hold
annual meetings of shareholders, at
which the shareholders may elect di-
rectors.
5. For federal income tax purposes,
a corporation is taxed as a separate
entity, and income and losses of the
corporation are not passed to its
shareholders, unless the corporation
makes an "S election".
6. A corporation is formed by fil-
ing a corporate charter, known as
"articles of incorporation," with the
office of the Secretary of State in
Tallahassee. The articles of incorpo-
ration must contain various informa-
tion specified by statute, including a
unique corporate name, a statement
of the number of shares of stock that
the corporation us authorized issue,
the par value (if any) of the stock, the
duration of the corporation (if other
than perpetual), the general purpos-
es for which the corporation is initial-
ly authorized (which may be stated to
include in the transaction of any or
all lawful business for which corpo-
rations may be incorporated under
Florida law), the name of an initial
registered office, the street address of
an initial registered office where ser-
vice of process can be made upon the
corporation, the name of directors,
and the name and street address of


the incorporator. The corporation is
required to file an annual report and
pay an annual fee to the Secretary of
State in order to maintain its stand-
ing as a corporation.
7. After the articles of incorporation
are formed, the board of directors
holds an initial organizational meet-
ing, at which it elects officers, adopts
bylaws, and takes other organiza-
tional actions. The bylaws consist of
a written document specifying the
"rules" under which the corporation
will be governed and managed.
8. Generally, ownership interests
in a corporation may be transferred
through a sale of stock, although the
transfer of stock may be restricted by
agreement or by law.

By Cathy Salustri
Q: Where is Gulfport's slice of the stimulus pie and how big is our piece9
What did we get and what did we not get9

A: Gulfport's gotten some stimulus pie but is ever vigilant for more, according
to city staff The city's applied and will continue to apply for a number of
competitive/formula grants included in the 2009 American Recovery and
Reinvestment Act Program, interim city manager Jim O'Reilly said
Gulfport, along with the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office and other local cities,
received almost $30,000 to participate in a prisoner transport program
Gulfport's also asked for
* $250,000 from the Public Infrastructure Grant Program to move the police
department to the 49th Street center,
* $350,000 from Homeland Security for a new fire engine, and
Funding for three police officers and one full-time marine officer
Finally, the city's Tangerine Trail project met the requirements of the
Transportation Improvement Program amendment of the Stimulus Bill The
city does not yet know how much money it will get, if any, but the project
ranked nine out of 58 of local projects

ASomethinH oh my mind
By Bill Northrop BNorthrop@theGabbercom

Is Cuba Ready for Americans;

Is America Ready to Go to Cuba?


L ftmg the embargo on Cuba
s the new cause du lour and
Im not particularly opposed to
it In fact, I've wondered if a sudden
influx of Amencan dollars would cor-
rupt the Cubans into changing the
ngid and controlhng comust re-
gnme
In the meantime, an idealstic and
false picture of the island Kmgdom
of Castro is bemg sketched by Cas-
tro apologists and "Amencas-to-
blame" antagomsts The latest came
from a delegation from the congres-
sional Black Caucus whose report
approached delusional levels And,
talks of bemg able to selllots of goods
m Cuba, well
Havmg visited there three times
as a ournahst, talked to others who
have visited more often, and other
journalsts who visited there last
year, I have a significantly different
picture Actually, I could wnte tales
of Cuba at length, but I'll shorten the
dialogue to summanes of what you
might find if you went there today
Most everyone is very poor and it's
well beyond our definition of poor
There are cars, but most of them
1950s vmtage (Cubans are good
mechanics or old Russian unports
There are scooters, motor bikes and
bicycles
Pubhc transportation m Havana
uses old Hungaran designed, pollu-
tion belching buses There are some
pedaled driven rickshaws In eastern
Cubas Santiago gasoline shortages
meant replacmg buses with horse
drawn wagons
Internal secunty and population
control is stiCl overseen by members
of the CDR (Committee for the De-
fense of the Revolution) They roam
the neighborhoods makig certain
nothing is out of the ordinary
"Sociahsm or Death" is still the
motto
Old Havana, parts of which are be-
g restored, looks old and wo and
used up Some buldmgs' facades


have collapsed, but families live on
the exposed floors usmg sheets as
walls
Food is still rationed Accordmg to
an Associated Press reporter shop-
ping for groceres can take hours
Media is state controlled
Businesses are state ran although
there are a few "perlmtted" private
restaurants All wages are tightly
controlled
Prostitution is wide-spread The
earngs are considerably more than
can be earned in other professions
Health care is widely available, but
most wouldn't hke it Medicines are
scarce, and hospitals pamitive For
sterilzation water was boiled on a
stove Care is rationed and difficult
to get m comphcated cases
Because we were ournallsts, we
were followed (not very skillfully) by
"watchers" Often, those who want-
ed to talk to us, had to pretend they
were not
Housing mcluded worker built
apartments winch were very plrni-
tive In one complex, toilet flushmg
was done by pounng water mto the
commode Cool water was kept m an
openbarrelnearthe kitchen Houses
are small, sometimes two or three
rooms per floor
Agriculture is under government
control (sugar cane and tobacco are
the cash crops), but mdivlduals can
now keep small gardens and sell the
produce in markets
Dissent is not permitted and met
with isolation or pumshment I once
got caught up m a government spon-
sored anti-human rights demonstra-
tion against a former Castro sup-
porter who questioned human nghts
violations The mob of about 2,000
was loud, and angry and chantmg
"Socalism or Death" tore the front
door off the home of one of the dis-
sldents
In spite of that, people are friendly
and generally energetic and not par
ticularly anti-Amelcanc m spite of


the continual anti-Amercan propa-
ganda
The infrastructure s weak, to say
the least, and pollution is an admit-
tedly major conene Havana harbor
is coveredd
There are luxury hotels built by
foreigners, manly the Spaish In-
vestors must agree to pay relatively
high wages and room rates are com-
parable to those m the US The
hitch is that wages are paid to the
Cuban government which then pays
the workers m pesos and at the job
controlled rates In other words, the
government skmns Workers do get
tips and those with foreign currency
can shop m dollar stores were foreign
goods are available
Cuba has not been without trade m
the past several years Many coun-
tnes, Mexico, Spam, Italy, Canada,
Venezuela, Chma, Russia, have
trade relations with Cuba Chma re-
placed Russia as its prie supporter
Many Amenrican visit by flying m
from Canada or Mexico Others come
as representatives of church groups,
special study missions, or as jour-
nahsts Not much of the trade has
filtered down to the general public
Government officials, on the other
hand, do quite well
To summ ze, Cuba, m spite of the
creases in trade with other coun-
tries, is extremely poor, not much
works mechanically, it is not pohti-
cally free (only one party is permit-
ted), speech and press are tightly
controlled, mternet is not permitted,
dissidents are harassed and some-
times jaled, and education is basic
and propagandized To oppose the
government is to be disenfranchised
The questions are whether its mfra-
structure can handle more vsltors,
whether trade actually will help the
average citizen, or whether lifting
the embargo will free the people or
just provide more dollars to support
a dictatorship

Get Your Bay-
Friendly Boater Kit
Boaters new to boating in Tampa
Bay are being offeredfree, customized
kits developed by the Tampa Bay
Manatee Awareness Coalition
(MAC)
The "Bay-Friendly Boater" program
provides customized information to
boaters new to boating in general, or
just new to boating in Tampa Bay
The target audience is boaters with
less than two years experience in
the Bay West Marine and Boat U S
have joined the MAC in supporting
this program to provide new boaters
with information about boating safety
and etiquette, as well as important
natural resources such as manatees
and seagrasses
All kits include a "Rules of the
Road" boat sticker from Boat U S,
the Boater's and Angler's Guide to
Tampa Bay, and a free nautical chart
of the bay Additional information
will be provided based on the boater's
preferred activities (such as fishing
or cruising), and the areas in which
they most frequently boat Boaters
will be asked to complete a short
survey about their boating patterns
and preferences to ensure they are
given information tailored to their
needs
The MAC, coordinated by the
Tampa Bay Estuary Program, is an
alliance of scientists, environmental
organizations and boating groups
working together to promote safe,
eco-friendly boating in Tampa Bay
The "Bay-Friendly Boater" campaign
targets new boaters specifically to
ensure they have vital "need-to-know"
information about seagrass beds,
manatee protection areas, restricted
security zones, nesting bird colonies,
recreational fishing limits, and other
aspects of boating in Tampa Bay
To request a kit, e-mail colleen@

Dear St Petersburg Mayor Rick
Baker Last month you killed eight-
year-old Pans Whitehead-Hamil-
ton
You didn't pull the trigger, but had
the power to prevent her murder and
others like them Pans could still be
ahve if you had acted on the pleas
of your residents but yenou chose m-
stead to sit m the shadows and deny
a problem mn her neighborhood
Gang-related gunshots killed a little
gicl whose only nmsfortime was h-
mg in Bartlett Park, that part of St
Petersburg you've steadfastly main-


dents quickly lea the difference
between gunshots and firecrackers,
where anythmg not locked down gets
stolen, and where everyone knows
you can buy crack or pot It's an rea
of the city that you cannot possibly
began to fix without someadmsslon
of a problem from your office, an ad-
tsslon you have given neither the
voters nor the officers who sk their
hves in that neighborhood
At Pans funeral her t m ster satd
that when she fell down righteous-
ness stood up He was wrong, nlgh-
teousness is inning scam ed aid
you're leading the charge If you
weren't you would walk Bartlett
Park at might and see the environ-
ment where these children grow up
You would talk to the people who
hve m these cne-sotaked neigh-
borhoods and not rely on others to
tell you how it is You would have
the courage to stand beside these
residents who would support you
and your pohce officers If you only
took one teeny tiny step toward
righteousness and admitted it isn't
a great day in St Petersburg if you
hve in Bartlett Park


Your pohce feore has some excel-
lent officers I know because I lived
m Bartlett Park for three years and
had many an occasion to call them
I knew t wasn't a perfect neighbor-
hood but ccred archways, hardwood
floors, pre-war construction and
your Pollyama speeches persuaded
me that things really couldn't be
that bad
Whenit became apparent that drug
cnnes and all then offspinng, from
petty theft to murder, had a tighter
gnp on my neighborhood than I ml-
tlally believed, I trusted your well-
woe hne "It's another great day in
St Petersburg" I beheved you were
sincere about changing things, I
thought you would y and fix what-
ever problems the neighborhood
had
What I didn't know was that you
turned your back on your police of-
ficers and residents I didn't expect
that when I nteerlewed you for
an article two years ago you would
deny a crime problem m mdtown I
dlidt know you would flush an an-
gy red and accuse me of spimrinmg a
story when I asked about crmme in
Bartlett Park I have you on record
that the people who took issue with
the city's approach to midtown rep-
resented a "not unhealthy conflict"
That's where you stood two years
ago outside the shinmy new midtown
Sweetbay Where do you stand to-
day' Dont let your hmuons tell you
where you stand, what do you be-
heve m your heartt
Is the situation m midtown still "not
unhealthy' Is it "not unhealthy"
that a httle grl will never know the
sweetness of a first kiss or the keen-
mg of a first heartbreak because you
refused to answer the pleas of your
residents? Is it "not unhealthy" that

you failed to give a little girl a safe
neighborhood to grow up in9 It's
time to take the responsibility for
what you wrought by placing pubhc
relations over the safety of St Pe-
tersburg's children
Go talk to your police- not the
clhef but your patrol Ask them if
they knew of gang activity m Bar-
tlett Park Then ask them why they
couldn't stop it Odds are all 500 of
your officers aren't incompetent
Maybe they couldn't stop t because
they ace grossly understaffed for
crime of the magnitude seen m Bar-
tlett Park and the rest of midtown
As I understand it, your pohce force
is short roughly 50 officers If you
can find the money for traffic control
every time the city hosts a bike rac
or arts festival why cant you find
the money for officers to keep gangs
from killing httle girls'
It's time to stand up beside the
neighborhood that had to bury a
little girl with her stuffed bunny
Youre a parent, can you not feel
then pant Can you still coldly look
the media m the face and tell us
it's another great day m St Peters-
burg9 If one estimate of how often a
Bartlett Park murder takes place is
right, someone else will die violently
there by Halloween
That httle gil's blood is on your
hands The young woman she could
have been, the world she could have
changed, the hves she could have
touched their absence from this
world is your cross to bear long af-
ter you aren't mayor anymore I
hope you think about Pans' fannmily
inchnch this Sunday, mssnmg thew
baby girl The httle girl who still
could be alive if only you had the
courage to say, I think we have a
crie problem m mdtown" instead
of "It's another great day m St Pe-
tersburg "
And I hope on Monday morning you
find a way to stand up
Sincerely,
Cathy Salustn







Attorney Keith Sanders Handles Bankruptcies with Experience and Sensitivity
By Greg Stem

guess you could say my motto
Sis 'boen there, done that',"
says Keith Sanders, from the
law office of Andre Keith Sanders,
P.A
He says that for two reasons. First,
he says his more than 17 years of ex-
perience as an attorney specializing
in handling "literally thousands" of
bankruptcies means that he has dealt
with virtually any kind of problem or
issue that might arise with them.
And, secondly, he had to file a Chap-
ter 13 bankruptcy himself a few years
ago. He says that experience makes
him very sensitive to the kinds of
things people face when making the
difficult decision to file.
"Most attorneys have never been
in a situation where they have been
worried about how to keep the lights
on, but I have been there myself so I burden of a house they can no longer free, you really don't have anything
