City Manager's Contract Extended Two Years
ST.PETE BEACH- The current contract of St. Pete Beach city manager Mike
Bonfield has been extended from 2010 to January 28, 2012, per the commission's
4-1 vote on Tuesday. Bonfield's present contract provides for an extension
of up to four years, but he asked only for two more. Mayor Mike Finnerty
supported the request, saying Bonfield, "... brings more stability to the city
administration, especially in these tough economic times. He's very competent,
does a good job and I think we should reward him for it". Bonfield indicated,
"Im not interested in using my current position as a stepping stone to work
for a larger community". District One commissioner Al Halpern supported the
mayor, citing the need for stability in the job.
District Three commissioner Chris Leonard voted against the extension.
While praising Bonfield's work ethic, Leonard said he'd prefer an employee-
at-will arrangement for Bonfield, a thought also initially supported by District
Two commissioner Jim Parent, who then sided with the majority, feeling that
an "at will arrangement might politicize the job". District Four commissioner
Bev Garnett wished to clarify a recent detail in a St. Petersburg Times article
that said Bonfield had been given a $2,308 one-time "raise". She noted the
payment was a cost of living adjustment, per se.

Fireworks Funding
Sought for SPB
With the help of the city of St. Pete
Beach, businesses and individuals,
this year's Fourth of July fireworks
celebration promises to be a big
bang. Robin Grabowski, president
of the Tampa Bay Beaches Chamber
of Commerce, presented a request
to SPB commission members on
Tuesday for up to $10,000 to help
fund the 20-25 minute long event.
The money is earmarked towards
the expected total bill for the event
of $27,000. A fifty percent deposit
is required, which is typically
non-refundable, according to city
manager Mike Bonfield.
District Two commissioner Jim
Parent expressed reservations on
funding the request, due in part
to ongoing litigation regarding
development issues in the city, the
cost of which alone is at the nearly
$200,000 mark and "that's not going
to stop", he advised, adding that the
request "is not a'have-to-have"'. Said
District Three commissioner Chris
Leonard, "I can't justify it. The city
has carried the load (previously), but
we cant do it now". District Four
commissioner Bev Garnett has been
looking into line items for areas from
which to draw some funds, she said.
Last year, the commission voted to
donate $1,500 towards the funding
but voted 4-1 on Tuesday to offer
$4,500. in hopes of stirring interest
from area businesses and individuals
to add to the coffers.
Rick Falkensten, of 6441 4th Palm
Point, then stepped up to offer $400
from his family, issuing a challenge
to other SPB businesses to lend a
hand. "It's time to step forward", he
told the crowd.

Raymond Fowler, St Pete: "I took my lovely ladyfnend out for a nice dinner;
we got treated nicely so I tipped really well! I'm actually a Veteran myself. I was
stationed in the Pacific from '42-'45 as a Navy radar man. I left my young wife and
daughter, like so many men did, to go and fight. We were on a LST Tank 1103; that's
a ship that can carry 30 tanks and many troops. I can remember when the seas got
really rough, the other radar man would get sick, and I would have to take over. We
supplied all the islands with provisions. We went to Iwo Jima, Okinawa, and Guam.
We pulled into Pearl Harbor with supphes and I wanted to call my wife because they
had a phone that you could call the States with. I spent $45 on a three minute call to
her. They had underground cable and it was worth every penny. We were married 65
years. Sometimes, out there on the Pacific, the US had seemed so far away, almost
like a fairy tale. It was so hard sometimes to believe that it actually existed. So today
I remember my fellow soldiers and treat my lovely lady Hilda to dinner."

Kimberly Cecil, Gulfport: "We spent today on the beach, remembering my father.
He was a hero; he helped storm the beaches at Normandy. He got six Bronze med-
als and a Purple Heart. He passed away in 2001 and I still miss him a lot. I was one
of ten kids, and my dad had a furniture company in North Carolina. But he would
always come down to Gulfport, to sell his furniture. We could never understand as
kids, why he had to leave in the summers; we didn't reahze that he was just trying to
support his family. He loved it here. So we arranged a party on the beach with about
ten friends as a remembrance. It was a really nice day."

Bob Gazaway, Gulfport/New Jersey: "I was a Marine; I served from 1965 to
1968 and was stationed in the Caribbean. Today really made me reflect about the
war; every day you pick up the paper and read about another death of a soldier. But
most people don't reahze that it's the families that suffer the most. It's so hard on
them; where can they take their grief? Their anger? The injured who return from
the war are in their own personal hell. Their tour of duty never ends; they have a hfe
of rehab and adjustment. They have pain and some are injured mentally. They come
home from the war, with no one to talk to, no one who understands what they saw
and did. For them, it's a constant nightmare. About three years ago, I got a real wake-
up call. I was selling a hot tub and this guy came by and wanted it. He was a Vietnam
vet and we talked for a while. What he saw over there had really affected him badly.
I was almost in tears after he told me some of the stuff that went on. It made me
reahze how incredibly lucky I was not to have to go over there. I kept thinking that
could have been me. I felt so bad for him, because it was obvious that he needed some
emotional and mental help. The pain just never ends for these guys."

Ginny Schmidt, St. Pete: "Of course, my dad was a vet; he served in the Army in
WWII and won a Purple Heart. He was buried in Brooklyn. I didn't really do much
today but this day always makes me reahze that whatever people think is wrong
with this country, the truth is, it's the best country in the world. For that, you should
thank a veteran because they fought and sacrificed to keep us safe and free. I went
to dinner with a friend and then came to the beach to watch the sunset. It was a nice

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You'll
work bravely on your issues this
week. There are many ways to do
this, though. You don't have to face
up to every gritty httle piece of the
past. You could do just as much to
reduce a problem by affixing your
focus on something pleasant and
staying in that mental space over
the course of a nice long walk.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). You
have recently made remarks to
yourself that were completely out
of line. Apologize and forgive so
you can go back to being the chief
cheerleader of Team You. After all,
if you're not on your own side, how
can you expect anyone else to be?
Confidence renewed, you stand to
gain love and money this week.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You believe
that whatever people do in hfe, they
have their reasons. There's someone
in your nmdst making an unpopular
choice. Though it would be easier to
take on the same view as everyone
else regarding this instance, it's not
inyour nature tobe judgmental. Your
tolerance will promote compassion.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You
have a high degree of self-discipline,
though you probably don't see it
that way. In your mind you are just
doing what must be done to get the
results you want, and that process
is actually fun for you. Friday, pat
yourself on the back for all you have
accomphshed during the week. You
did it all by just being you.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Games
are so much fun this week. You
impose imitations on yourself for
the sport of it. Metaphorically,
it's as though you are taking what
you would normally be able to
accomphsh and challenging yourself
to do it blindfolded or with one hand
tied behind your back. The rules are
artificial, but the struggle is real.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You
gain a better perspective when you

drop out of the fight for a while. There
will be several instances this week,
particularly Friday and Saturday,
when doing nothing is a better use
of your time than doing something.
Through relaxation you'll mentally
rise above your situation and see it
from a higher place.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21).
Some beheve you only live once, and
others think this is only one of your
lives. Either way you look at it, you
win. You'll be living to the fullest
because you think you won't get
another chance like this, or because
you know you'll have endless chances
and, therefore, nothing to lose.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19).
Life in the fast lane gets a bad rap.
You don't have to be involved in
unsavory craziness to want to move
quickly this week. An exhilarated
pace invigorates you, and you love
all of the experiences you can fit in
when you remain succinct. Brief and
interesting encounters will be your
favorite kind.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18).
You want to move forward in a
relationship, and you sense correctly
that in order to do so you must break
a pattern of the past. It isn't enough
to merely interrupt the pattern. You
must put it behind you for good,
and you have the strength and
determination to do this now. Create
a ritual to cement your new choice.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Too
much comphance is dreary! Take
detours, go off script, stray from the
rules and blow the budget. You'll be
sending an important message to
yourself: You are strong at your core
and don't rely on external structures
to live your life. Once you assert
yourself, you will get back on track
with a fresh perspective.
ARIES (March 21-April 19).
Instead of starting something new,
pore over the old news. Revew and
reassess. There's a good chance you

missed something important. Maybe
one of your projects was abandoned
near the fish hne and you can
pick it up, perhaps Thursday, and
cross with your head held high.
Completion feels amazing!
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You
are doing your best to keep up with
it all, and yet you can't help but
feel cheated out of valuable, elusive
leisure. To sit and do absolutely
nothing for a few days -- well, this
fantasy's time has come. Figure out
a way to make it happen in the not
so distant future. Give yourself some
total relaxation to look forward to.
This Week's Birthdays: This year
brings progress. In some regards,
the most positive development of
all is that you do not try to change
unchangeable things. You work on
yourself, and the world around you
transforms because of this. June
shows you going with the flow and
winding up in a kind of relaxing
oasis. June and July are filled with
love and adventure, partly due to
the new characters you meet in
those months. In November you'll
capitahze on past investments or
put your talent to lucrative use.

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 tal
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.

This N' That in South Pasadena
By Slbylle Stajich
The demolition of three buildings on Huffman Way started May 18. It effects
the annex, storage shed and Pizza Hut and will take about two weeks. No in-
formation has been given as yet what will be done to these spaces.
The City is trying to conserve water in the Galatea Park by stopping the
water in the fountains. This also saves the city some money until this critical
situation is over. The little pond in the Barbara Gilberg Park has been filled
in with dirt and rocks and a bird bath. This makes it easier to keep up the
maintenance of the pond.
The Boca Clega Room in Palms' Professional Building was filled to capacity
on Tuesday, May 19 when Trecia Swanston, Pharm D, gave a lecture about
Cholesterol Management. After a light lunch she began to talk about choles-
terol. It is a fatty-like substances that can lead to heart disease and stroke.
LDL is the bad type, HDL is high density and the good type. Try to eat less
than 200 mg cholesterol daily, maintain a healthy weight and try to be physi-
cally active. Walking is the best exercise and eat healthy foods. Some people
also need to take medicine because changing their diet is not enough. Buildup
of cholesterol plaque and other fatty deposits is not good because the arteries
that feed the heart can become clogged so that the blood flow is reduced. One
should therefore focus on low saturated fat low cholesterol foods such as five
or more servings of fruits and vegetables per day, a variety of grain products
like bread, cereal, rice and pasta, fat free and low fat milk products, beans and
peas, lean meats and poultry without skin. East at least two servings of baked
or grilled fish each week, nuts and seeds in limited amounts, unsaturated veg-
etable oils like canola, corn, olive, safflower and soybean oils. Go easy on whole
milk, cream, ice cream, butter, egg yolks, cheese, organ meats like liver or
kidneys, coconut and palm oils and solid fats like shortening. Try to broil and
grill instead of pan frying. Many questions were asked and answered and the
meeting closed around 2 p.m.

Don't be Judge and Jury
Dear Editor: Re: the Gabs (May
21-May 27, 2009). One would have to
be an insensitive and twisted soul not
to be horrified by the sexual assault
allegedly committed by four teens
against a local student. That said,
in this country people are supposed
to be "presumed innocent" until a
jury or judge declares otherwise.
All four of the folks who responded
to this week's Gabs question have
apparently forgotten that ...none
mentioned that the teens have been
accused, not convicted. We would all
do well to remember that the basic
right to the presumption of innocence
applies to everyone, difficult though
it may be sometimes.
Bonnie Navin

Operation PAR Asks
Community for Help
On May 1, Operation PAR, the
largest substance abuse organization
in West Central Florida, kicked off
"Pennies for PAR", an awareness and
fund raising campaign. PAR's goal is
to collect one million pennies by June
Budget cuts as well as lower than
usual donations are affecting the
non-profit, and the campaign hopes
to highlight the fact that even small
donations can help those in need of
services offered by the organization.
Proceeds will benefit Operation
PAR's services to children.
In order to meet its goal, Operation
PAR is asking for the community's
help. If you would like to make a
donation visit PAR's corporate offices
at 6655 66 Street N., Pinellas Park
or put a donation in canisters located
at businesses throughout Pinellas
County. If you business is interested
in helping, canisters can be obtained
by calling 545-7564, ext. 228.

SPB Meeting Decorum
Resolution Tabled
Citing a need to consolidate three
existing resolutions passed in
2006 & 2008, the St. Pete Beach
commissioners voted on Tuesday to
revise and review at a later date the
existing wording of a new resolution,
designed to curtail bad behavior from
the audience at city board meetings.
Spearheaded by Vice Mayor Al
Halpern, the resolution was drawn
up last year by the city's attorney,
"to maintain order and ensure
public deliberations and actions are
conducted in an atmosphere free
of hostility". Mayor Mike Finnerty
opined Tuesday that the proposal
is "a waste of time" and "too rigid".
City Attorney Mike Davis and

tt omethinh Oh my mind
By Bill Northrop BNorthrop@theGabbercom

Put this in your pipe and Smoke it

L egahzmg drugs Yes or no or
maybe? I just read that presi-
dent Obama, a former drug
user, opposes legahzmg m ajuana
However, his justice department an-
nounced that it would not mterfere
with San Franciscois medical man-
juana program unless it violated
both federal and state laws So, kmd
of a "yes" and "no" anwer from the
new admnaistraton At the same
time, there's a movement to legalize
maumana for medical opposes, of
corse nationwide
In the meantime, m Mexco a real
hve shootmg drug war is underway
Ifs leakg oer the border, too Of
course, we have or own real, hve,
drug wars in major and not-so major
cities (thnk St Pete), and most of
our local cnme is dr~g-related The
war on d s has raged for years and
still drugs dule
So, should we legahze, regulate, and
control them all, or just man uanam
The "yeas" say that regulatmg them
will take the rime out of the drug
trade Better yet government can tax
drugs As for creatmgjobs, there's no
question it will What better timing
than now? The nayss" say it will en-
courage drug use and that someone
wldl always try to slrt the controls
And, would so-called soft and hard
drugs be legal m some context? Or,
are we just talkmg man uanam
Yes or no, Im for a refreshing de-
bate The big push now is for legal-
Iang manluana, but you cant talk
about one without the others) For
stance, what about other soft and
hard dgs( I'm not certam winch is
winch) such as magic mushrooms,
ecstacy, GHB, LSD, peyote, absmthe,
methamphetamine, herom, cocame,
or prescnption drugs such as ocycon-
done, oxycontm, Fentanyl, Xanax,

Valnu, Vlcodin, or Peirocet 9 Do we
allow these to be used, and, if so, m
what strengths, and what frequency
and under whose contml?
If you legalize only mujauana, what
about the hazards of smokmg9 Why
do you get to use your soft drug and I
don't9 Would anythmg really change9
Presumably, people under 21 or 18
wouldn't be permitted to partake
How would we handle usage by those
younger? And, would usage go or up
down? Would free treatment centers
be set up9 Would law suits be allowed
a la smoking
All mterestmg questions Zunch,
Swirtzerlmand experiented mrth its
so-called "needle park where drugs
were allowed, food and shelter and
health care provided free When I
was there m the 1990s there was a
death a week in the park (some from
violence) and kids were flockmg there
from Europe Tounsts were discour-
aged from going near the park They
dropped the experiment later
In Holland, manjuana and mush-
room s are legal and manluana toler-
ated and regulated However, restnic-
tlons on use are growing Psychotic
episodes and deaths were hnked to
mushrooms And, while cnme is
not generally associated with usage
their, regulation, treatment, and en-
focement amounts to 75 per cent of
its pubhc expenditures on drug edu-
cation and programs In addition the
contmnal mcrease in strength (three
or four times the 1960s) of the THC
whnch is the mam mgredient has
drawn concern
Then there's the prostitution issue
It's legal there also and I can provide
the same arguments for legahzmg
prostitution that there are for legal-
znmg gambhng Should we be talking
about that also9

What Steps are Involved
in the Probate Process?
Part 2
3. Appointing the Personal Rep-
The court authorizes a Personal
Representative to administer the
deceased's estate. A Personal Repre-
sentative, also called an executor/
executrix, assumes the responsibility
for closing an estate as soon as pos-
sible in an effort to distribute the es-
tate's assets to those who rightfully
inherit them without delay. This per-
son is critical to the probate process.
Personal Representatives have a le-
gal obligation to perform their duties
honestly and efficiently. The heirs to
an estate can hold a Personal Repre-
sentative personally accountable for
harming the estate's financial stand-
ing by neglect or deliberate action.
A will typically names the deceased' s
choice for Personal Representative,
and Probate Courts will normally
honor this choice. When no will ex-
ists, or if the Personal Representa-
tive named in the will declines to
serve or cannot serve, the court has
the authority to appoint a Personal
Representative. Once the Personal
Representative is appointed, the Pro-
bate Court recognizes the Personal
Representative's authority to act on
behalf of the deceased's estate. The
Court issues a document, called "let-
ters of administration," identifying

the Personal Representative as the
estate's official representative. A
Personal Representative can show
this document to a bank officer, for
example, to gain access to a checking
Needless to say, the Personal Rep-
resentative should be a trusted fam-
ily member or close friend who will
act to carry out the wishes of the de-
A person who decides that he/
she does not want to be a Personal
Representative can decline the ap-
pointment. A back-up, or successor,
Personal Representative is then ap-
pointed. Similarly, if the Personal
Representative feels that the job in-
volves more effort than one person
can handle, the Court may appoint a
co-Personal Representative.
4. Informing the Affected Par-
The Personal Representative is re-
sponsible for formal notification and
the publishing of public notices in
newspapers to inform potential heirs
and creditors about the probate pro-
ceeding. After giving notice, waiting
periods follow. Creditors, heirs, and
others can file their claims against
the estate during these periods of

Safeguard Your
Dogs Against Heat
Hot weather is often deadly for
dogs who can succumb to heatstroke
in just 15 minutes and suffer brain
damage as a result. Dogs who are
left in parked cars are especially
Symptoms of heatstroke include
restlessness, excessive thirst, heavy
panting, lethargy, lack of appetite,
dark tongue, vomiting and lack of
coordination. If you see a dog show-
ing any of these symptoms, get him
or her into the shade immediately
and call a veterinarian. Lower the
dog's body temperature by providing
water to drink, applying a cold towel
to the head and chest, or immersing
the dog in tepid (not cold) water.
PETA (People for the Ethical Treat-
ment of Animals) makes the follow-
ing suggestions for safeguarding
Don't carry your dog in the bed of
a pickup truck. While this practice
is always dangerous, heat brings the
added danger that dogs' feet might
be burned on hot metal.
Don't take your dog jogging, except
on cool mornings or evenings. Rest
often, and take plenty of water.
Trim heavy-coated dogs' fur, but
leave an inch of fur for protection

against insects and sunburn.
Keep dogs inside. If they absolutely
must stay outside, at least try not to
keep them outside during the hot-
test part of the day. Provide all-day
shade, drinking water in a heavy
bowl and a kiddie pool.
