Gulfport Pursues Full
Time Attorney Position
By Cathy Salustri
After an hour of debate, during
which time Gulfport Mayor tried to
adjourn the meeting, citing the city's
inability to get anywhere on the issue,
Gulfport City Council voted 3-2 to
Tim Driscoll, pursue hiring a full-time attorney.
Gulfport's present Vice-Mayor Bob Worthington and
attorney. councilmember Judy Ryerson cast
the two dissenting votes. Mayor Mike
Yakes, councilwoman Michele King and councilman Sam
Henderson voted in favor of hiring a full-time attorney.
This move leaves the current attorney, Tim Driscoll,
with limited time as Gulfport's attorney.
See Attorney, page 43
Gulfport Tentatively Passes
Property Tax Decrease

The city of Gulfport passed a tentative millage rate of
3.855 mills, which means that, should council pass this
millage at a later date, property owners will pay $3.855
per $1000 of assessed property value.
Councilwoman Judy Ryerson explained that council
may reduce the millage rate before passing

Since June, the St. Pete
Beach Community Center has
been offering Parent/Child
Swim Classes to teach young
children and their parents the
dangers and joys of the water.
Because there are so many pools
in Florida and the Gulf is just
steps away, many parents have
elected to enroll their children
in the classes, which emphasis
water adjustment, safety and
swimming skills. According to
Senior Lifeguard and Assistant
Pool Supervisor James Inglis,

the final budget but it cannot raise it,
so by passing the millage rate council
effectively set a ceiling.
"We can always come back and come
down on that millage," Mayor Mike
Yakes said. There was no public com-
ment and council passed the millage
rate.
"I think it's a tribute to the city man-
ager that he's brought us this budget
and not cut any services," council-
woman Michele King said. For over
two decades, councilman Sam Hen-
derson pointed out, the city has had
a millage rate well over 4 mills.

Hurricane Window and Door


By Greg Stemm

"The focus of my company
is on personal relationships
with customers," said
Scott Prestero, owner and
president of Hurricane
Window and Door.
"Because we are a smaller
family owned company you
won't be just a number to
us. You are guaranteed the
very best craftsmanship
and value."
Prestero has over 30
years of experience in the
business, having trained
under rigorous union
guidelines from the time
he was just 17 working
at Silvernail Mirror and
Glass when it was open in
St. Petersburg. Hurricane
Window and Glass has been
in business since 1995 and
is a full service glass and
glazing specialist. He is
also a registered "My Safe
Florida Home" contractor.
"We always strive to
bring to our customers the
finest products, the most
professional installations
in the industry and service
that is second to none! Our
focus is on our customer
relationships which we feel
is a fundamental basis for
sound business practice.
Your safety and protection
is our main concern," said
Prestero.
He notes that his
business applies the
same commercial grade
standards and attitude to
his primarily residential
clients.
"When you work under
commercial rules, there is
no room for error. Things
MUST be done to industry
standards or you have to
rip them out and do them
again," said Prestero.
"That's why we have a
credo in our business that
you do it right the first
time. We use commercial
grade sealants and we offer
a ten year leak warranty


offers Protection, Pea
where most companies only
offer a one year guarantee.
If someone is going to
make the investment to
protect their property and
valuables then we want to
make sure we do it right for
them," he added.
Prestero says he
insists on a high level of
professionalism from all
of his employees from the
sales representatives to the
installers. "We strive to be
there when we say we are
going to be there, do what
we say we'll do and do it in
the way that you want it
done."
He says communication
is key. "We let customers
know when we expect to
have materials in and keep
them informed about the
delivery date. Then we try
hard to work within their
schedule, even doing some
Saturday installations if a
weekday won't work for a
client. We absolutely want
every client to be delighted.
We want to do what THEY
want, not what we want,"
said Prestero.
Hurricane Window and
Door offers a wide range of
different products including
both non-impact and impact
resistant window and
doors, all sorts of shutters
and protective materials,
garage door bracing, bullet
resistant glass and plastic
products, shower doors,
curtain walls, store fronts
and even door glass blinds
and shades.
Some of the window
manufacturers that they
represent include Silverline
(an Andersen Windows
company), Simonton,
Windowcraftsman,
Peachtree, Pella, PGT,
Custom Windows, Florida's
Best and Lawson.
"We usually only work
with mid to upper grade
manufacturers and their
products," said Prestero.
"The cheaper or lower


Scott Prestero, president and owner of Hurricane Window
and Door, offers a full line of windows, shutters and


hurricane protective covering.
grade products just don't
offer the protection or the
quality that we want our
clients to expect when they
are dealing with us. That
means we usually aren't
the cheapest bid, but we
aren't the most expensive
either. We try to offer the
very best value for the best
materials and products on
the market."
Prestero says that his
company offers virtually
every kind of shutter or
protective fabric available
including accordion style,
bahama style, colonial
style, roll down shutters,
and the last in window
and door protection
Astroflex, which is a tough
fabric that offers up to 97
percent wind and water
blockage. Because it is a
fabric, Astroflex can wrap
around trim, moldings,
and many other uneven
surfaces offering maximum
protection.
According to Prestero, his
clients realize not only peace
of mind from new windows
or shutters, but reduced
energy costs, insurance
discounts, increased home
value and increased safety
and security. He notes that
Hurricane Window and
Door offers free estimates
on both large and small
jobs.


Prestero moved to the
St. Petersburg area from
Chicago when he was just
12. He is a graduate of Boca
Ciega High School and is a
member of Most Holy Name
of Jesus Catholic Church in
Gulfport. He says he has
coached Little League in
Gulfport for 10 years, and
for 8 years prior to that out
on St. Pete Beach. He loves
the water and is an avid
boater in the waters in and
around Tampa Bay. Every
year he donates materials
to Habitat for Humanity
who can either sell them
or use them in their own
projects.
Look for advertisements
for Hurricane Window and
Door on TV on the Food
Channel, Lifetime Movies
Channel and Baynews 9.
"Just call us, you'll be glad
you did!" said Prestero.

IN THE BATTLE

AGAINST HEART DISEASE
YOU SHOULD KNOW THE SCORE.
GET YOUR CT CALCIUM SCORING EXAM FROM PALMS OF PASADENA.
This year more than 1 million Americans will suffer a heart attack. A heart attack can strike without warning.
However, early detection can pinpoint heart disease and help prevent a heart attack. A CT Calcium Scoring exam
from Palms of Pasadena provides a reliable picture of calcium deposits in arteries, signaling an excessive build-
up of plaque along artery walls, a condition that can lead to a heart attack. Studies have shown that coronary
calcium scores can predict coronary artery disease with significantly higher accuracy than many other standard
risk factors. Using our 64-slice CT scanner we can perform a CT Calcium Scoring Exam creating incredibly vivid
and accurate 3D images of your heart, helping your physician make critical diagnostic decisions. CT Calcium
Scoring is painless, noninvasive and can be done in a matter of seconds. Best of all, it could save your life.
CALL TODAY TO SCHEDULE YOUR $99.00 CALCIUM
SCORING EXAM AT PALMS OF PASADENA HOSPITAL.

Patrick Causey, Gulfport: "I went
up to Jacksonville to visit friends of
mine that I had gone to undergrad
with at the University of North Flor-
ida. We just hung out on the beach,
cooked out and watched the fire-
works. I stayed for the whole week-
end and then came back home."
* *


Charlie Davis; Broadwater: "I
live across the water from Gulfport
and I took my 42 foot power boat
out into the middle of Boca Ciega
Bay with about eight friends and
watched the fireworks from the wa-
ter. We rafted up with two other
boats and had some good food and
a few adult beverages. There were
a lot of boats out on the water; also
quite a few sailboats actually and
it was one of the best turnouts I've
seen in a while. We stayed out there
a good two hours after the fireworks
ended. It was nice to see so many
boaters out on the water, enjoying
the nice weather and the fireworks.
It was a good show."


Susan Meenaghan, Gulfport:
"Well, I couldn't sleep at all on Friday
night, just could not get to sleep. So
I stayed up all day Saturday on the
Fourth, cleaning my house, trying to
get some things done so I could stay
awake. I was so tired and I was trying
to keep myself busy. At the last min-
ute, we decided to drive our car down
to see the fireworks. We took our dog
Floyd with us and we parked right by
the dog park, kept the windows rolled
up and watched the show. It was re-
ally nice. I finally crashed later that
night when we came back. I fell asleep
almost immediately... Boy I needed it.
Not a very eventful Fourth of July, I
know, but at least we saw the fire-
works."


Sue Wilson, Gulfport: "This year,
we drove out of town to Holiday to
visit a small group of friends; my
husband's boyhood friend lives there.
He's also a jeweler and I took a few
broken pieces of jewelry to him to
get fixed. When we got back, we had
planned on walking down to Cly-
mer Park to watch the fireworks but
we were just too hot. Plus the Rays
game was on, so we just decided to
stay home. I heard that the show was
a little short this year, like about 15
minutes for the whole thing."

You & THE

LAW

Decisions, Decisions,
Decisions
In our last article, we briefly dis-
cussed three ways to give legal au-
thority to another person. This week,
let's take a look at how these legal
transfers of control and decision-
making work.


Guardianship
This is a legal process in which the
court places an individual or agency
in control of someone else's affairs.
Since establishing a guardianship
requires action by the Court system,
it can be expensive and cumbersome.
In addition, guardianship reduces an
individual's legal rights to those of a
minor.
Conservatorship
This is a type of guardianship that
applies only to a person's property
and not his or her personal matters.
As such, its scope is less restrictive,

and the individual involved retains
many of his or her legal rights.
Durable Power of Attorney
By establishing a power of attor-
ney, you authorize someone else to
act in your behalf. You can give very
limited powers, such as authorizing
someone to sell property for you, or
very broad powers, such as paying
bills, making investment decisions,
or making all decisions for you.
A durable power of attorney re-
mains in force even if the person who
establishes it becomes incompetent.
While a power of attorney is gener-
ally established to ensure that your
affairs will be handled for you, it
must be durable to be effective in the
event of your incapacity. Any power
of attorney, including a durable one,
becomes null and void when either
the person granting it or the person
to whom it is granted dies.
You should be sure to specify exact-
ly what functions are to be covered by
the durable power of attorney. For
example, medical decisions, invest-
ment choices and property care can
be named specifically.
Of course, a durable power of attor-
ney should be given only to someone
you trust implicitly to act in your
best interest. You should consult an
attorney for the specific requirement
of a durable power of attorney.

Cool Canines
As summer heats up and several
states turn to burn bans and water
rationing to combat prolonged
droughts, dog owners must pay
careful attention to keeping their
canines cool.
Some dogs, particularly the snub-
nosed breeds like pugs, bulldogs,
boxers and Lhasa apsos, will make
this easy on us and simply revert
to air-conditioned hibernation until
temperatures outside relax.
Others, no matter the climate, will
not forsake their beloved backyard.
It is with these stalwarts in mind --
guardians of the yard, lovers of the
swimming pool, keepers of the garden
-- that I offer the following guidance.
Limit summer walks to early
morning or late evening, and keep
them relatively short. As a general
rule, if the sidewalk is too hot for
your bare feet, it's too hot for your
dog's paw pads.
If for some reason your dog is not
allowed to luxuriate indoors, he'll
need a covered shady spot to retreat
to at any given time of day and cool,


fresh drinking water available at all
times. The ideal outdoor water bowl
is weighted to avoid spilling, and it's
smart to have two or more bowls per
dog set out.
Many dogs are natural swimmers,
but don't set Fido loose in the pool
(or lake or river) until you know two
things with certainty: 1) He really
does know how to swim, and 2) He
knows how to get out of the pool. Even
great swimmers will tire and drown
if they aren't taught how to exit a
swimming pool. And if your pool has
no steps and no shallow end, your
dog has no exit and no resting place,
so you'll need to keep it covered.
But it's not just dogs and pools
that don't always make for happy
endings. Doggie doors are installed
to give a dog free access to both yard
and house. But they also give small
children free access to yard and
house. If you have all four -- pool,
doggie door, dog and child -- make
sure both dog and child know how to
swim and how to get in and out of the
pool unassisted. Otherwise, keep the
pool covered.


Easier, cleaner, safer options for
utilizing water to cool your dog down
are outdoor misters and wading pools.
Misters are essentially fans that blow
cool water. Wading pools are shallow,
easy to clean, and simple to enter
and exit. Just keep in mind that the
pool does the dog no good if the water
inside is scorching.
Know that dogs get sunburned, so
keep daily exposure to the sun in
check.
Know also that they get heat
exhaustion, usually while sitting in a
parked car waiting for their owner to
return from some "quick" errand.
It only takes a few minutes for a
parked car to heat up to unbearable
temperatures. Symptoms of heat
exhaustion include heavy panting,
salivation, fatigue and muscle
tremors. If your dog appears to be
suffering heat exhaustion, move him
to a shady spot, wet his body down
with cool, damp towels, offer him
small amounts of water and call his
vet immediately. Heat exhaustion is
serious, and the best way to avoid it is
to leave the pooch in the comfort of his
air-conditioned home while you tend
to the business of your day.
Summer and water go together like
Bonnie and Clyde. But the water
of some rivers, creeks, lakes, bays
and beaches is not safe to drink. No
matter how wet the activity you have
planned, always bring along more
than enough clean drinking water for
you and your dog.

SPCA Pet of the Week
Hi, my name is Monolo not to be confused with the
famous shoe designer "Manolo" but I am just as desir-
able. I am stylish, women love me, men want to be me
and I go very well with any Coach purse (real or fake).
I will sit and watch over all your newly purchased loot
(hidden in the spare bedroom closet or garage) until
you are ready to reveal them. I am energetic, friendly
and affectionate. I am waiting for you at SPCA Tampa
Bay, 9099 130 Avenue N. in Largo. Come meet me and
make me your new, all year-round Mr. McDreamy. For
more information, go on-line at www.spcatampabay.org or call 727-586-3591.


Adopt a 40-mph Couch Potato
Meet Cici, a female brindle greyhound with a white
stripe down her nose. She's playful, and would enjoy
a home with a fenced yard for her exercise. She, like
her sister Jackie, plays nibbles and "nits" her teeth
when excited, and she jumps around at playtime as
well, so she would be fantastic for a greyhound savvy
family with older (12+) children. We would love to see
the sisters adopted together if possible, as they are
great friends. They are both good with cats and small
dogs. If you would like to meet Cici and Jackie or any of our other greyhounds,
please call Greyhound Pets of America on 727-595-7852, visit our website:
www.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.


Friends of Strays
O'Neil is a laid back 3 year old DSH Tuxedo cat. He
gets along fine with other cats but would prefer a home
without dogs. O'Neil is very friendly and is hoping for
a good forever home. Please stop by and visit him at
2911 47 Avenue N. in St. Petersburg, call 727-522-6566
or visit friendsofstrays.com for more information. All
Friends of Strays adoption fees include spay/neuter,
vaccinations, microchip and county license.

COUPONB


















ANSWERS TO YOUR QUESTIONS ABOUT VEIN DISEASE


Vein Disease: Vein problems all involve issues of Valves, Pipes and Gravity: Five systems of veins drain the surface of
each leg. Each vein system is like an upside-down tree, i.e. each has a main trunk, branches, and twigs. There are one
way valves throughout each of these vein systems.
Valves: When the leg muscles contract, the venous blood is pushed upwards, toward the heart. When the leg muscles
relax, the force of gravity causes the venous blood to fall backward, toward the feet. The vein valves prevent the blood
from flowing backward, down the leg.
Venous Hypertension: If the valves in the main trunk have failed, i.e. are 'incompetent', the whole vein system below is
now under increased pressure, holding up the weight of the column of blood all the way to the heart instead of just to the
next valve. The vessels below dilate and, under increased pressure, leak.
Varicosities (Hidden and Visible): The branches from the trunk dilate under pressure resulting from failed valves above.
These branches become varicose veins (dilated and twisting). 90% of varicose veins are inside the leg and not visible from
the surface. Patients can have terrible varicose veins and pain, yet have nothing visible on the surface of the legs to
indicate a problem. These veins cause aching, tiredness and heaviness; the legs feel 'older' than they should and hurt at
the end of the day. Varicose veins on the surface can also hurt and are unsightly. Varicose veins are dangerous. Varicose
veins increase the risk of superficial phlebitis which is associated with a 400% increase in the incidence of deep vein
thrombosis.
Spider and Reticular Veins: The twigs, small and larger capillaries, under pressure from failed valves above, dilate and
become red 'spider veins' and wider, purple 'reticular' veins. These are not only unsightly, but they also, cumulatively,
cause some discomfort. 20% of patients feel significantly better when these are closed with sclerotherapy. The purple
reticular veins can bleed rather dramatically under pressure. Many older patients have clusters of these purple veins,
especially at the feet and ankles. They often experience frightening bleeding. These veins are easily closed, greatly
improving appearance and preventing bleeding episodes.
Night Cramps, Swollen Ankles, 'Secondary' Restless Symptoms, and Stasis Dermatitis: The twigs, (the capillaries
under pressure) leak. These capillaries, designed to hold the pressure of a column of blood to the next vein valve, are now
supporting the pressure of a column of blood all the way up to the heart. Under pressure, these capillaries leak fluid,
protein and blood cells. The skin congested and with poor blood flow, becomes 'sickened': reddened, scaly, itching,
burning, and eczematous. Ulcerations can result. The accumulated hemoglobin darkens the skin. Fluid leaks from the
capillaries causing swollen ankles. Often the need to move the legs to relieve congestion is mistaken for true 'primary',
brain based, restless leg syndrome. At night, the edema fluid that has accumulated throughout the day returns to the
capillaries and the muscle cell membrane balance is altered. This triggers night cramps.

create this fort, featuring a cannon.


By Cathy Salustri
In keeping with this
year's theme, Red, White

the contest, part of the
day-long 4th of July fes-
tivities on the beach.
Recreation employees
Bob Williams and Lance
Kimbrell undertook judg-
ing the sandcastles and
ultimatley selected the
three best entries. They
judged entrants based on
the sandcastle's original-
ity, creativity and patrio-
tism.
The three winning fami-
lies all took first place;
Gulfport did not rank the
winners as first, second
and third. The winners
are pictured here. All

RUSH'SReality


A satirical look at the world around us.


By Anne Rush


My computer crashed recent-
ly. It wasn't sudden like a
car wreck or anything like
that. In retrospect, I suppose there
were warning signs.
The first of which was that it would
suddenly shut-down out of the blue
for no apparent reason. Luckily for
me, this only happened when I was
in the middle of a heartfelt email, the
emotions of which I could never possi-
bly put into words or communicate to
a loved one that honestly ever again.
But not to worry. As with all things
computers, it didn't do it every day
or all the time and most of the time,
I'd just leave it off for a while and it
would start right back up again and
act fine. Those crazy computers! You
know how they are!
This went on for a period of time but
I think the last time it happened was
when I was researching my symptom
of "fatigue" on WebMD. You have
no idea the number of hits or diag-
noses you can get with a symptom of
fatigue. The first 800,000 or so had
something to do with things like life-
style, diet, exercise, stress and ironi-
cally, sleep habits, which I thought
was really weird.
So I skipped over all of those and
was just getting to where I was
learning about syndromes where the
symptoms include not only fatigue,
but also a tendency for the skin to
burn when exposed to harsh sunlight
for extended periods of time (I have
that!), evidence of hair growth on the
bridge of the nose between the eye-
brows (I have that!) and, if you have
all of these things coupled with a
family history of ancestors, then you
might have...... Crash!
That was bad enough, except that
this time, it wouldn't re-start. If just
flat out wouldn't come back on. I'd
push the button and there was noth-
ing. So I'd push the button again
and hold it for a really long time and
nothing. Then one day, I pushed the
button and got a blue screen and got
all excited and then all I found was a
flashing question mark in the middle


of it. I thought, what? You're asking
me? I don't know what's wrong with
you. I was just on the verge of finding
out what's wrong with me and my fa-
tigue and all when you went south on
me. Yes, I'm talking to my computer
now. And expecting answers.
To make a long story short, my
computer eventually got fixed. But I
was without it for a very long time,
almost two months, which seemed
an eternity. I didn't realize I would
miss it as much as I did. You have no
idea what it's like to watch TV and
hear over and over and over again,
"for more information, just log on to
our website or visit us at www ....". I
thought to myself "Oh, yeah, easy for
you to say!".
But the mere fact that I was so dis-
traught over not having a computer
worried me somewhat. I refuse to be
dependent on technology. I'm better
than that. So I played solitaire with
an actual deck of cards and found
myself double-clicking the aces. So
I tried a different approach. I got a
piano and decided to finally learn
how to play. But that only started me
thinking about all the keyboard tu-
torials and sheet music that I might
download from the internet if only I
could. My repertoire still consists of
only "chopsticks".
And then it hit me. Early one eve-
ning after a day at the beach, I re-
alized I couldn't even Google. I can't
Google! I was too sunburned and
tired to Google anything at the time
anyway, but I was devastated that I
couldn't!
Luckily, I have a job where they use
computers. So here's how I dealt with
it.
Week #1: I begin to check my bank
balance at work. OK, that's not en-
tirely true. I always checked my
bank balance during the day at work
even when I had a working computer
at home, but still.
Week #2: I not only check my bank
balance at work, I begin to transfer
funds electronically.
Week #3: I begin to "log on" to My-

FoxTampaBay, 10NewsConnect and
BayNews9 and click on the "Seen on
TV" link for follow ups on stories I
wanted to know more about. Or ones
that I was too fatigued to stay up and
watch. I'm still worried about what
syndrome I have.
Week #4: After dinner, I break down
and buy sun screen with both UVA
and UVB protection, ask my kids
about Monster and Jolt or other en-
ergy drinks, pluck my eyebrows and
check my lottery numbers in the pa-
per. The bad news is I didn't win the
lottery, or even a lesser prize. The
good news is I'll have to go to work
tomorrow and they at least have in-
ternet!
Week #5: I spend an hour on the
phone with tech support from India
trying to access my email from the
web (at work). My email is my life-
line to friends and family near and
far and I really miss them. My boss
comes out of his meeting and I real-
ize that when it comes to outsourced
tech support to India, it's not the lan-
guage barrier that'll get ya. These
reps simply just don't know a thing
about computers!
Week #6: I attempt to download
porn at work, not because I like porn,
but because I can.
Week #7: A detective wants to speak
to me about the attempt to download
porn using my work computer. My
employer wants to speak to me about
that as well. In the end, my boss
allows me to step down from my posi-
tion rather than being fired.
Week #8: The computer repair place
calls. It's fixed and ready!
As I get my computer home and be-
gin to set it up, I rejoice in the fact
that at least now I can apply for un-
employment on line.

Safe Boating Course
in One Lesson
St. Petersburg College is launching
the State of Florida approved
Boater safety class at the Seminole
campus library on July 25. This one-
day, 8-hour classroom and hands-
on course, appeals to boaters who
cannot find the time for a four-week
boater course. This class meets the
requirements for certification of
youthful operators of a vessel with
10 HP motors or larger. It is offered
as a mandatory education class for
boating violators. This course is
also a great refresher course for any
boater and may be used for boater
insurance discount credit. The course
includes an exam and a certificate of
completion, which allows the boating
violators immediate resumption of
their water activities.
Topics include boat types, safety
equipment, navigation rules, local
charts, waterway markings, knot
tying and waverunner operation.
The tuition for the class is $35
which includes classroom instruction,
hands-on experience, text, certificate
of completion, registration with the
State of Florida, and boater ID card.
For information call SPC's Lifelong
Learning department at 341-3184 to

Caldwell, from front page
R.W. 'Bill' Caldwell, III and his wife Katie, and three grandchildren Poul
Hornsleth, III, Jody Hornsleth Sep6lveda and her husband Rob and Kyle
McCarthy. There will be a memorial gathering this Saturday, July 11th at 10:00
AM in R.W. Caldwell Park at 64th Street and Gulfport Boulevard. Parking will
be available, and a reception will follow.
Bob's maternal grandparents, George and Abigail Jarrell, first brought him
to Gulfport in the 1920s. He fished at the Gulfport Pier nearly everyday. Back
then, Gulfport was open to the Gulf; there was no Bayway, and the waters
were turquoise and teeming with fish. When his grandparents opened the
Gulfport Market, he helped them out along with his mom, Gail Caldwell, and
his Aunts Isabel, Ann and Helen. He attended Gulfport Elementary, Disston
Junior High and St. Petersburg High School. He continued to fish at every
chance and took advantage of every opportunity to assist local boat captains.
He was an excellent boatsman and fisherman.
Known as Bo in the 1920s and '30s, Bob was always an excellent student,
too. He graduated St. Pete High in 1938, and, after attending St. Petersburg
Junior College for a year, he enrolled in the Massachusetts Institute
of Technology. He graduated MIT during World War II in January,
1943 with a degree in aeronautical engineering.
Bob arrived back in Gulfport with his family on July 4, 1951. His plan was to
work with his Dad and open the building division of R.W. Caldwell, Inc., a real
estate and insurance business originally started by his father in 1937. In late
1952, Bob found himself running the entire company after his father's untimely
death. Bob was the first President of the Gulfport Chamber of Commerce and
was President of the Friends of the Gulfport Library when the new library was
built at 28th and Beach Boulevard.
He was an organizing director and built the First Bank of Gulfport at 49th
Street and 20th Avenue South.
Later, he was an organizing director of First Gulf Bank that had five branches
and was headquartered in Gulfport at 58th Street and Gulfport Boulevard.
Bob lived a very modest life style. He maintained both his boat and auto
engines himself until late in life when his friend, Mike Prell, helped him out.
Bob was looking forward to Gulfport's centennial celebration next year in
2010 covering events and happenings many or which he personally witnessed
over a period of time that helped shaped the mosaic that was Bob Caldwell's
accomplished and happy life centered here in Gulfport.
In lieu of flowers the family asks that donations be made to either For HAITI,
With Love, an organization Bob strongly supported for their efforts to feed the
underfed Haitian people or the Gulfport Historical Society or the Friends of the
Gulfport Library.

Sc methtn on my mind
* By Bill Northrop B_Northrop@theGabber.com

More Precious than Oil


After months of drought, really
a couple of years, the rain is
back. Maybe it will be enough
to replenish the aquifers and refill
the reservoirs, or maybe not.
However, now that it is here, what
do we do with it? What doesn't seep
into the aquifer or go directly into the
reservoirs will run off to the rivers,
ditches, drains and eventually end
up in the Gulf. Much will be polluted
with fertilizers, oils, and what not as
it drains from our asphalt covered
world. But, why not start saving the
stuff?
Some farmers used to place rain
barrels under the barn downspouts.
I know it was good for washing hair,
but I suppose it was used for other


things, too. Whatever it was used for,
it relieved pressure on the wells. In
Bermuda, rain washes off the roof
and into cisterns in the basement.
That's a practical solution, but tough
to do here where there are no base-
ments. Yet we do need to preserve
water.
Water is more precious than oil in
my estimation and probably in oth-
ers, too. In other words, it isn't an
original thought. We worry about
running out of oil, but the real prob-
lem is water. It's needed for drinking,
bathing, cooling, farming, and manu-
facturing. And, it's scarce almost ev-
erywhere.
At one point, there was talk about
piping water from the Great Lakes

to the mid west and west where wa-
ter is scarce, but development fierce
(at least until this latest recession).
A consortium of states that surround
the lakes put a halt to that. Still it
was and is an intriguing idea.
Maybe the rainy states and areas
(think Seattle) could collect water
and export it elsewhere. Goofier
ideas have been raised. In the 1970s,
Saudi Arabia was talking about tow-
ing icebergs to the Middle East. Now
with the arctic ice fields shrinking,
maybe it's not such a bad idea af-
ter all. We already tap glaciers and
snow run-off.
Of course, there's always conser-
vation which is helpful, but not
enough. Growth and use will always
exceed conservation and that in-
cludes the energy field. Desalination
is a practical, if expensive solution.
Israel has been doing that for years
and we have a hefty plant in Tampa
right now. In fact, the world is most-
ly water and it seems absurd to say
we have a shortage.
So, maybe we need more desalina-
tion and hence more costly water
which will lead to conservation. Or,
maybe not. Demand for bottle water
continues to climb even as the price
and cost rise. You buy one gallon
of bottled water at the same cost of
1,000 gallons of tap water. Worse,
bottled water is an environmental
disaster.
At the very least, the scarcity of
water makes it a good investment
whether it's in a water company
or purifying company. Unlike the
weather, we can talk about it and
do something about it, too. Anyone
with any ideas?

Gulfport City Council Meeting


Public Comment


& Council Quotes

Overheard at the Special Gulfport Council Meeting
Gulfport Council met to discuss whether the
city needs a full or part time attorney.

"I have not seen a little city that has a full-time attorney. I just
don't think that our little city needs a full-time attorney." -Jim
Greenwald

"I don't think that part time is working because citizen's aren't
being served." -Ann Neue, who currently has what she called a "sailboat
foreclosure case" with the city.

"Whoever the city attorney is, I really believe a full-time city attorney
will give the city better service on a full-time basis."- Art Padulla

"Having one's own personal attorney as the city's attorney...
brings forth the question of dual representation." Lee Stapella,
who asserted that councilwoman Michele King would suggest
Tom Minkoff as the city attorney should the city hire a full-time
attorney. Stapella said Minkoff represented King several years
ago. The Gabber could neither prove nor disprove these statements by
press time.

"I believe we have two choices here: a full time Tim Driscoll or a
part-time Tim Driscoll. We can change the position tonight from
full-time to part-time but it doesn't say on here we change attorneys,
so we go as Mr. Driscoll as a part-time to Mr. Driscoll as a full-time.
It doesn't say any place on here to change attorneys." -Vice-Mayor
Bob Worthington. Driscoll said he interpreted the posted agenda to create
a full-time position and remove the part-time position, but it neither made
him full-time nor removed him immediately

"I'd like to encourage the city to come to a conclusion. It's running
a close second, second of course, to the chickens. Please let's not
drag it out until the chickens come home." -Jeri Reed

"I think if we go with a full-time attorney I think we'll have to go
with a tax increase because our budget cannot hold anything else.
We're low in police officers. We're not laying anybody off but we're
not hiring anybody, either." -Vice-Mayor Bob Worthington

a r CandL
S ~By Cathy talustriW


Let me tell you about Shelly and
Cat. I met Shelly when I start-
ed writing for The Gabber. I
was recently single, new to the free-
lance world, and shocked at the new-
ness of my life. While I wasn't bitter
I didn't exactly trust anyone, either.
I didn't want any more people in my
life. I was quite content with my dog,
who never judged me and never let
me down.
Somehow Shelly wove herself into
my life. She suffered through my mis-
adventures, including driving me to
no less than three government agen-
cies spanning two counties when my
license got suspended. Her girlfriend
cooks for me and her closest friends
welcome me into their circle and
show me that there are people in the
world you can trust.
As a rule I don't have a lot of friends,
but these women- Stacey and Leah
and Amanda and Maricris- are gen-
uine, warm and funny. These are
women you want to hate- they all look
like prom queens and cheerleaders
and the girls who made my life mis-
erable in high school--but I cannot.
It's like I'm living in some odd mar-
riage of Sweet Valley High and Sex
and the City. And of all these women,
it is Shelly I rely on the most, Shelly
who waited so patiently for me to un-
clench and accept her friendship.
Only two things aren't perfect: Leah
has a weakness for cats and Shelly
and Maricris decided to move to Den-
mark. These two things will intersect
in just a few sentences.
Sunday night Calypso (my dachs-
hund) and I head over to Leah's to
say goodbye to my rock, my confi-
dante and best friend. In my abject
misery I barely notice the stray cat.
Only when I take a seat on the front
porch do I notice a new cat- a furry
brown tabby- loitering. When Leah
says she thinks someone must have
dropped him off a few days ago and
they simply cannot have another cat
so they will take him to Friends of
Strays, I feel a spurt of anger at how
cruel people can be, but that's all.
Leah has a much bigger heart than


I do; if I am the Grinch Leah is the
Grinch after his heart grew three
sizes. I am most assuredly not a cat
person; give me a dog any day. You
can play with a dog. You may, of
course, play with a cat, if by play you
mean "feed and clean its litter box."
Roll a tennis ball past a cat's nose
and it will raise one eyebrow and
look at you like you're trying to sell
it Amway. If a dog is the happy im-
migrant's child eating chicken with
her fingers, a cat is the Protestant
descendant of a Mayflower family
who sneers at the dog for not know-
ing which fork to use.
I do not like cats.
Except this cat doesn't consider that
when he saunters over to me. He puts
his paws up on my seat.
"Hi," I say. "I don't like cats. Go
away." In cat language this appar-
ently means "jump in my lap and curl
up and go to sleep."
I can't take a cat. I have no place for
a cat. I do not, I remind my dearest
friends, like cats.
"It doesn't matter, the cat likes you,"
Shelly says. Easy for her to say. Even
if this cat jumped in her lap and
started to lick her left breast, Shelly's
moving to Denmark this week and
can't keep it. Traitor. I look down at
the brown ball of fur kneading my leg
in its sleep. As much as I don't like
cats I cannot conceive of simply open-
ing a car door, putting a cat on the
side of the road, and leaving it there
as I drive away.
I have no litter, no litter box, no
food, no carrier. I cannot take this
cat. Leah's husband, Dan, slips into
the house and returns a few moments
later with a spare carrier, litter, lit-
ter box and food. My brain argues
one last time that I do not like cats.
The cat opens his eyes and blinks at
me, curls into a tighter ball, then rolls
on his back in my lap. He stretches a
paw up and touches my chin.
Cat is now curled up on my pillow
in my apartment. His life is perfect
except for Calypso.
Poor Calypso. She doesn't under-
stand how anyone can look at her and
not see her inherent cuteness. She


has spent the past two days stand-
ing a few feet away from Cat (I re-
ally will find a better name), wagging
her tail hopefully, and looking at him
with big brown eyes. Cat hisses and
closes his eyes. He doesn't seem to
have the motivation to swat or move.
It's like having a hound dog that uses
a litter box.
I'd love to call Shelly and tell her
all the funny Calypso/Cat stories.
But I can't; she left for Denmark this
morning.
Cat hisses again.
Calypso just wags her tail. She would
like to make friends now, please. The
hiss increasingly lacks fire. Calypso
hopefully puts her paws up on the
couch. They come nose to nose. Cat
hisses again and Calypso barks, a
shrill, puppy bark that I know means
"Let's play." Cat closes his eyes. Ca-
lypso presses her nose to Cat's fore-
head. Cat's eyes spring open and he
hisses and swats at Calypso.
I hope Calypso hangs in there. I
know what it's like, needing a friend
so badly but hesitating to reach out.
She's doing well to take a page out of
Shelly's book, to just sit there, wag
her tail, and wait for Cat to come
around.
And as for Cat?
Cat may act aloof, but I know what
it's like to be suddenly alone in a
brand-new place. Even if it's better
than anywhere else you've ever been,
you're still having the time of your
life without anyone else around. And
while you aren't abandoned, you feel
that way. It's hard to trust anyone.
Believe me, I get that, Cat.

10 month old Sophia and father Erik Almquist have nothing but a good time at the St. Pete Beach Swim Class.


Swim from front page
there are many children who fall into family and
neighborhood pools and drown because they have not been
taught the basics of water safety, something he said can be
learned at an early age.
"We start them out at six months; they have good recall
memory and are generally fearless at that age. Our lifeguard
instructors teach the kids to tread water, kick their feet,
tread water, swim to the side and climb out of the pool after
they've jumped in. We teach them to blow bubbles and use
toys as incentives to get them to swim towards the steps or
shallow edge of the pool. That way at least they will learn
how to pull themselves out if they fall into a pool."
18 year old Nicki Kharzouz teaches the class and thinks
its incredibly valuable to the kids and parents alike. "After
taking this class, some of these kids have started to swim
all by themselves, even at three years old! It definitely

helps their confidence and coordination, and I know their
parents feel safer knowing their child has had some water
instruction. Too many kids die every year from falling into
a pool and not knowing how to save themselves. We try to
teach them swimming AND survival skills."
Erik and Liz Almquist brought their ten monthn old
daughter Sophia, to the class.
"She is absolutely fearless when it come to water, totally
drawn to it," Liz said. "So Erik and I wanted to get her into
a class where she would learn the right way to swim and
possibly help herself if she had to."
The Almquists don't own a pool, yet are in the pool
business.
I wanted her to continue to love the water but develop a
healthy respect for it," Erik said. "This class will hopefully
teach her the proper tools and develop the competency
around water that you really need if you live in Florida."

Hogs and Dogs in

Grand Central
By Cathy Salustri

Lastweek, Coleman the boxerparticipated
in the Grand Central District's Hogs and
Dogs, a celebration of four-legged and
all-beef dogs. Coleman, who seemed a
little laid-back about the whole affair,
especially at only 18 weeks old, took the
festivities in from a cool patch of sidewalk
Sin the district. The festivities included a
dog pageant, a hot dog eating contest,
and hogs. The hogs consisted of bikes
on display, courtesy of the Red Knight's
Motorcycle Club. The Red Knights consist
of retired and active firefighters.
This was the second annual such event
and proceeds benefited the SPCA. Oh,
and that man shoving hot dogs under his
hat in hopes of winning the hot dog eating
contest? That's St. Petersburg mayoral
hopeful Scott Wagman. He vowed to pull no
such trickery if elected.

Gabber July 9 -July 15, 2009







Attorney, from front page

For almost 20 years attorney Tim
Driscoll has served as the city's
attorney on a part-time basis. The
city discussed this issue and opted
to retain Driscoll as the city's part-
time attorney three years ago. The
issue resurfaced last year and the
city once again decided to keep a full-
time attorney. The issue came up yet
again this year.
Henderson expressed discomfort
on a humanitarian level about
dismissing a 20-year employee with
no severance or benefits package, but
King dismissed his concerns, telling
him that was "how it is."
While the Florida League of Cities
told Yakes that most small cities do
not have a full time attorney, Yakes
said "Gulfport has never necessarily
followed suit."
"The costs associated with a full-
time attorney I don't think would be
a value to Gulfport," Worthington
told council, reminding them that
a full-time attorney would need a
legal aid and office space as well as
law books. Worthington based this
statement on a 45-minute discussion
with an attorney with the Florida
League of Cities. Morrison also told
Worthington that Sanibel, the only
small city in Florida had an attorney
because the city had many land
issues.
Ryerson agreed with Worthington,
saying she didn't believe the city
needed a full-time attorney.
"There really is not enough work for
a full-time attorney. I have a list here
of nine items- nine, that's it-" that
Ryerson says Driscoll is pursuing for
the city.
Despite Mayor Yakes'plea to keep the
issue of the person in the position of
city attorney, councilwoman Michele
King opened her comments by telling
council "I think this is about Tim."
King pointed to the Pasadena
Properties case as evidence. She
called Driscoll cavalier with the city's
money, even though Driscoll removed
himself from the case several years
ago when he felt his staying on the
case would drag out litigation and
muddy the issue.
"This is about Tim's performance.
Nobody wants to say it but we're
here tonight because of Tim's
performance. I vote for a full time
attorney and I also have a vote of no


confidence for the attorney that we
have," King said.
Throughout a heated meeting
Driscoll conducted himself with grace
and calm, assuring the city before
council voted that he would provide a
transition agreement and assist the
city in making the easiest transition
as possible.
Attorney Tom Minkoff stood
during the public session, ran down
his qualifications and offered his
services on what an interim basis for
$9,000 a month, or $72,000 per year.
Worthington said he'd like to see
everybody interested in the position
afforded the opportunity to apply for
the position.
"I think it's totally inappropriate
for a practicing attorney to come
before us tonight and put in his job
application. I believe that if there
is a push to railroad Mr. Driscoll
out of here tonight we should hire
an independent firm," Worthington
said.
Several people in the audience
also expressed dismay at Minkoffs
play for a position with the city.
Lee Stapella reminded council that
Minkoff represented King when she
had an ethics complaint during an
election several years ago.
Ryerson also said she believed
there "might be a problem" because
Minkoff had contributed to certain
political campaigns.
Driscoll assured council that
neither Minkoffs work for King nor
his political contributions posed an
ethical problem.
King made a motion to change to a
full-time attorney and appoint Tom
Minkoff as the interim attorney.
"I'm not going to make that second,"
Yakes told council, despite his
advocacy of a full-time attorney.
Henderson said he would second
the motion for discussion only, that
he believed Driscoll should get a
severance package and that he
didn't support hiring Minkoff on the
outset.
Yakes suggested that Gulfport
advertise a Request for Proposal, or
RFP, to figure out exactly what they
needed and what they could get from
a full-time attorney.
"I think that we have a sitting
attorney that could be here while we
do the search," Worthington said,
adding: "We need to come up with
some sort of a plan as to what it is
we're looking for so everybody will


know what it is they're bidding on.
Throughout the meeting Yakes
spoke clearly and vehemently that
he wanted the issue resolved and
wanted to see the city advertise
for the position. When audience
members started to heckle council and
councilmembers began to disagree
more actively, Yakes adjourned the
meeting.
"Mr. Mayor," King said "I have a
motion on the table with a second,
aren't we going to vote on that?"
"He can adjourn the meeting if he
wants to," Driscoll said in response to
King's question.
Yakes said he would hear the vote.
Henderson amended the motion to
vote only for a full time or part time
attorney and remove Minkoffs name
from the motion.
Worthington seconded Henderson's
motion but asked the city to keep an
open mind and not hesitate to admit
at any point they may have made
a mistake in pursuing a full-time
attorney.
Driscoll previously provided a report
to council, in which he estimated the
city would pay just over a quarter of a
million dollars for a full-time attorney.
The report also said that the city had
paid an average of $85,000 per year
for his retainer.
The city, Driscoll said, paid him
$125 per hour for litigation and non-
litigation work. Driscoll's rates have
not changed in six years. Driscoll
provided an alternate agreement
for $108,000 and said that should
cover the city's litigation. Under that
agreement Driscoll said he would
spend one day a week at city hall.
Council did not discuss that report or
proposal at Tuesday night's special
council meeting.
"I believe we should keep our eyes
open... if we see down the road that
hiring a full-time attorney is going
to be overly expensive we need to be
able to say we went the wrong way,"
Worthington said.
After the motion passed, King asked
what the city would do without an
attorney, and Driscoll reminded her
he was still the attorney while the city
explored hiring a full-time attorney.
The city will meet to discuss how to
hire a full-time attorney tomorrow
(Friday) July 10 at 2 pm.

Attention Artists!
Several artists are needed to
participate in the new adventure of
Gulfport Galleria.
They are attempting to get together
a group of eclectic artisans to share
in a semi- co-op gallery in downtown
Gulfport. They will man the shop,
and you just bring your art to sell.
For as little as 200/month you can
be in on the ground floor of an much
needed Gallery in Gulfport. Gulfport
is growing in stature as an artist
community. More and more folks
are coming to the downtown area to
see art. Also the art walk is booming
so twice a month the customer base
at the Galleria is increased. Plus
Gulfport has several festivals and
events nearly every month besides
the art walk.
Remember all you do is bring
your art, they do the rest. They are
experienced shop owners and show
coordinators. Please contact Georgia
at 513-633-1001.
