Bugs, Mosh Pits and

Manners, Oh My!


By Leign ulltton

the Jungle Boogie Day camp at Boyd Hill. Her mother
Jennifer says Carina was nervous at first, but now can't
wait to get there in the morning.

Gulfport's Got Soul!
By Leigh Clifton
Gulfport got a healthy dash of soul
Friday night as the Summer Concert
Series on the Point and the Gulfport
Chamber of Commerce hosted Solid
Core, a funky, upbeat dance band that
got the crowd clapping and dancing
from the first notes.
Although the 300 plus crowd wasn't
as big as the June concert, they were
every bit as happy and enthusiastic as
lead singer Jay Stephens jumped off
stage, singing, gyrating and pulling
people up out of their chairs to dance.
Playing a great mix of disco, classics
and funk, Solid Core had the crowd
forgetting all about any potential rain
showers,

Gulfport Hires Minkoff
As Interim Attorney
By Cathy Salustri
For the next three months Gulfport resi-
dent Tom Minkoff will act as the interim
city attorney. In a special council meeting
Friday afternoon, council voted 3-2 to hire
hire Minkoff for 90 days, give the Gulfport
attorney of 19 years, Tim Driscoll, two
months severance, and hire an outside
firm to help write a job description for and
find a full-time attorney.
Councilman Sam Henderson, who made
the motion, said he wanted to make it
contingent on Driscoll, as current attor-
ney, reviewing the video of the meeting to
make sure the city stayed within its legal
rights. Henderson also praised Driscoll
for his conduct while "under fire" at last
Tuesday's special council meeting where
council discussed the attorney's position.
The Tallahassee-based consulting firm
Governance will help the city write a
job description for a full-time attorney.
According to Mayor Mike Yakes, Gover-
nance will charge no more than $10,000
to help Gulfport start its search for a full-
time attorney.
See Attorney, page 30


Solid Core lead singer Jay Stephens jumped off the stage
and grabbed Agnes Mbano and pulled her out to dance.
Afterwards she said, "that was so much fun. I have to bring
my family, it's very family oriented and I really like that!"

Tentative Millage
Rate Clarification
Last week The Gabber report-
ed that Gulfport city council set
a tentative millage rate of 3.855.
This confused some readers,
who wrote and said that council-
man Sam Henderson's comment
that for over two decades the city
has had a millage rate well over 4
mills was incorrect because the
tax rate was under 3.5 mills.
To clarify: all these numbers dis-
cussed refer to the tentative mill-
age rate rather than the actual
tax rate landowners pay the city.
A tentative millage rate is a start-
ing point for the city as it cre-
ates its budget. As stated in last
week's article, once city council
sets a tentative millage rate the
city may lower the rate but it can-
not raise it.
Last year's tentative millage
rate was just under 4 mills, and
the tentative millage rate for 2007
was 4.3 mills.

Rudy Danker, Gulfport: "I think Governor Palin quit because it was what was best
for her family and Alaska. I don't think she'll run for President, however, because I
think she'll be immersed in other things. I don't think she'll ever make it to the White
House. But I do think that she'll always be active politically. Her main reason could
be family. I also heard that she got a great book deal. She might get her own TV show
and be a commentator. I think she's more in it for the money more than anything."







S Clarice Ziegler, Gulfport: "I think she quit for political reasons and family prob-
4HB lems. She got a lot of bad publicity for the illegitimate grandchild and then after
when her daughter and the baby's father broke up. I don't think she'll try and run for
President; I just don't see her getting elected, because of her lack of intellect. She just
doesn't have what it takes. She only wanted to write a book so she could make money;
I just have never liked her. She likes the spotlight too much, she goes wherever it is.
Right after she had her baby with Down's syndrome, she left and started campaign-
ing, when she should have stayed home. That was the time she should have been
bonding with that baby. I don't respect her for that. She's also just too quirky for my
taste. She just shows that she cuts and runs when the going gets tough."




Mary Jane Sachela, So. Pasadena: "I think what her daughter's former boyfriend
says is right, that she wanted to quit to make more money. I can see her as a public
speaker or as a commentator for Fox News. I hope she doesn't want to run for Presi-
* H dent though. I think she's a very nice person, but doesn't have the intellect for politics.
I thought her stepping down from Governor was a cop-out, it was her first term! If you
can't finish your first term, how could you have the credibility to run for President? I
S personally hope that she stays away from public office; she can do anything she wants,
but if she makes a run at the White House, I may have to move to Costa Rica!"




Al Whitaker, Gulfport: "Political ambition makes you and your family live out in
the open, it makes you a target. After the much publicized fight with David Letter-
man, she whined about how she got picked on and how people were always attacking
her about her manner and intelligence. What did she think was going to happen? To
quit in the middle of her first term because people talked bad about her and her fam-
ily? If you can't finish a year of being a Governor, then I think she should give up all
aspirations for any future political office. What will she do; if she gets to the White
House, which I doubt very much, will she decide after a year that it was fun to be
President but now I'm done? America doesn't vote for losers and quitters. I think she
wants to be President; why do you think she was in New York City at a $1000.00 a
plate fundraiser at the same time Dave Letterman made those jokes about her? She's
just trying to keep her name out there for public recognition for the next two years.
Unfortunately, I think she WILL run, but I don't think she has a chance. She'll just
keep following the limelight. I think she saw Mark Sanford of S. Carolina's downfall
as an opportunity for her to run maybe. Bottom line is she quit and if she tries to run
for President, then I think her aspirations far exceed her intellect."

and pyrotechnics experts who made

Watch out for
Gulfport's Poop Police
Dear Editor: Earlier this week, my
wife took Callie, our son's Border Col-
lie/Retriever, for an early-afternoon
walk in Wood Ibis Park. I take Callie
out each morning. She's a fairly "reg-
ular" dog. She does her business in
the morning and occasionally in the
evening. So my wife was surprised
when Callie squatted and relieved
herself in the afternoon. Not expect-
ing that sort of action from Callie, my
wife had no bag. So she walked to
the bag station near the 27th Avenue
entrance to the park to retrieve one.
As she walked towards the bag sta-
tion, Callie pulled to indicate some-
one's approach. My wife moved to
the side, noticing what appeared to
be a jogger coming from behind.
A middle-aged man came quickly
towards her with a bare hand full
of dog poop. He initially had it out
in front of him, palm up, but as he
approached he moved his hand into
what appeared to be a throwing po-
sition and yelled "You forgot some-
thing!" She tried to tell the man
she was going to retrieve a bag and
he yelled "You're a liar." She simply
could not calm the man as he contin-
ued in his threatening behavior by
circling her, shouting and waving his
hand full of dog poop.
Shortly thereafter, I learned of the
incident and approached the man's
backyard on my bicycle. I observed
the man described by my wife and
said, "Excuse me. I understand you


had a disagreement with my wife."
He came over, clearly angry and
stated if I could be quiet for a min-
ute and listen he would tell me what
happened. He then explained that
someone had let their dog loose in the
park and it had pooped on his lawn.
He had called the police and they
came and gave the man a ticket for
his dog trespassing. (Not sure what
that had to do with me.) He went on
to say he saw my wife walk away
after her dog pooped in the park so
he picked it up to take it to her. He
added "she said she was going to get
a bag, but I think she's a liar." I ad-
vised the man never to go anywhere
near my wife again and went home to
call the Gulfport Police.
A Gulfport Officer responded and
was advised of the incident. I told
him, in my opinion, an assault had
occurred. He did not agree and said
no crime had occurred.
To constitute an assault you must
also have the apparent ability to com-
mit that violence and create a well
founded fear in the other person. My
wife thought she was about to have
dog poop thrown on her.
The officer subsequently visited the
man and thereafter called my wife to
tell her that he said he should have
waited to see if she was going to get
a bag.
People walking their dogs in the
park should certainly pick up their
dogs' poop. And, if your walking your
dog and run into the Gulfport Poop
Policeman, make sure you have your
poop bag ready and, for your health's
sake, don't shake his hand.

once-beloved local rag? The answer
is increasingly poor journalism. The
culprit? Cathy Salustri, and manage-
ment for not holding her to a passable
standard.
Ms. Salustri is at best a mediocre
writer (as evidenced by her ever more
tedious and grammatically heinous
Hard Candy column), but is undoubt-
edly a mockery of credible journalism.
She is truly the queen of misquotes
and unfacts. In the past year I have
spoken with police officers, board
members and council representatives
who have cited at least one instance of
being misquoted by Ms. Salustri. Her
coverage of city events and city gov-
ernment is irrelevant and incorrect at
best. Further, Ms. Salustri seems to
have her own agenda in reporting on
issues affecting our city, and liberally
applies her own spin to local current
events. She treats reporting like a
Bill Northrop opinion piece. I don't
believe Ms. Salustri can differenti-
ate an editorial column from factual
reporting.
How does the Gabber justify retaining
such a person week in and week out?
Is this the best you have to offer the
community? Our community deserves
unbiased, accurate and relevant cov-
erage of South Pinellas County hap-
penings. Find a new reporter if you
have any desire to keep the Gabber
credible.

fLAVW


Joint Ownership,
A Will or a Trust
Andy, a widower with four children,
had most of his available cash invest-
ed into four Certificates of Deposit.
The teller at the bank told Andy that
if he would hold each C/D in a trust
for each of his children, there would
be no probate on Andy's death and
each child would then automatically
become the owner of one C/D. What
the bank teller advised Andy was
true, but Andy was probably not told
the whole story.
If Andy was to hold one C/D in trust
for each of his children, whose money
would be used ifAndy required expen-
sive surgery, twenty-four hour home


care or care in a nursing home?
Under such circumstances, what had
been planned as an equal distribu-
tion on death would substantially de-
crease the inheritance of one or more
of his children because money would
be spent for Andy's care. In addition,
if each of Andy's C/D's were held in
trust for one of his children, another
problem would arise if Andy became
incapacitated. No one would have
access to Andy's money and then it
would be necessary to have the Court
appoint a guardian for Andy. Even
though the guardian could be one of
Andy's children, this could create a
needless expense and a great incon-
venience.
At the very least, Andy should have
a Will which states that whatever
money is left in Andy's estate after
the costs of his daily living, lifetime
care and final expenses have been
paid will be distributed to his chil-
dren equally, if that is Andy's wishes.
This Will, of course, would require a
probate on Andy's death but Andy


would have been provided for during
his lifetime.
A much better way of handling
Andy's estate, however, would be for
Andy to create a Living Trust. He
could then place all of his assets into
the trust by transferring the title to
his assets from his individual name
into his name as Trustee of his trust.
Andy would then retain full control
of his assets while he is competent,
or chooses to have such control, but
upon his incapacity the successor
trustee that he names in the trust
(this may be one or more of his chil-
dren) takes over control of Andy's as-
sets, pays his bills and keeps a record
of receipts and disbursements. The
trust will do the following things for
Andy and his children:
1. Significantly avoid probate costs
and provide for immediate distribu-
tion of all assets on Andy's death.
2. Avoid the necessity of a guardian-
ship if Andy is incapacitated.
3. Provide money management dur-
ing Andy's lifetime if Andy is unable
to manage his own finances.

Adopt a Fast Friend
Meet Conch, a male black greyhound with white
markings. His foster home parents say he is an
affectionate, energetic, and handsome hound. He will
nudge you with his snout when he wants some one-
on-one attention from you. He's very social, and we
think he'd do great with older (12+) children who can
engage him in fun activities, and who are old enough
to understand the parameters of playing with a dog
of his size...not to mention strength! If you would like
to meet Conch or any of our other greyhounds, please call Greyhound Pets of
America on (727) 595-7852, visit our website: www.greyhoundpets.com, or see

Q: HOW ACCURATE ARE
THESE HEALTH SCREENINGS?
A. Our adherence to stringent
protocol, highly trained sonographers,
state-of-the-art ultrasound machines,
and board certified interpreting
radiologists make the screenings
exceedingly accurate.
Physician written protocols ensure
consistency and accuracy.

Q: WHY SHOULD I HAVE
THESE TESTS IF I HAVE
NO SYMPTOMS?

Gulfport Beach June Water Quality Report

By Cathy Salustri
Each week the City of Gulfport tests the water quality
in the waters off Gulfport Beach. Gulfport has contracted
with the City of St. Petersburg for the tests.
Every month The Gabber publishes the results of those
tests. If, at any time, the tests show that the water qual-
ity poses a health risk, the City of Gulfport will issue a
Health Advisory. Gulfport typically receives test results
within a week of taking the sample.
Currently, the City tests for two things: enterococcus and
fecal coliform. Scientists consider enterococcus a common
bacteria found in animal and human intestines, and, re-
sultingly, in human and animal excrement. Federal stan-
dards used to require agencies to measure water quality
by the amount of fecal coliform along public beach waters
but recently have replaced fecal coliform with enterococ-
cus as the standard. Fecal coliform also comes from the Sample
waste of warm-blooded animals, including humans. Enterococcus Fecal Coliform
The City of Gulfport currently tests for both types of bac-
teria. Test results will help classify Gulfport Harbor as June 2 2 7
"good", "moderate", or "poor". Enterococcus of less than 35 June 9 8 28
parts per 100 milliliter and fecal coliform of less than 199 June 16 2 7
per 100 milliliter of saltwater indicate good water qual-
ity. For more information, contact the City of Gulfport at June 23 2 7
893-1000.
You can reach Cathy Salustri at June 30 2 7

Attorney, from front page

Vice-Mayor Bob Worthington ar-
gued stridently against hiring a con-
sultant.
"Scott Maddux (of Governance)
is a wonderful group and all that,"
Worthington told Council, add-
ing: "They're in Tallahassee, not
in Gulfport. They really don't have
a clue as to what's going on in
Gulfport and what our needs are."
Worthington further suggested that
instead of spending $10,000 with
Governance the city put out a Re-
quest for Qualifications. A Request
for Qualifications, or RFQ, would so-
licit attorneys looking to work with
Gulfport.
Judy Ryerson cast the other dis-
senting vote at the end of the meet-
ing. Ryerson suggested that Gulfport
hire a firm to search for a new attor-
ney but retaining Driscoll "to do the
day to day work," while keeping him
separate from the hiring process.
Driscoll, who asked to be excused
from attending the meeting, submit-


ted a separation agreement that stip-
ulated he would continue to perform
day-to-day work for the city as long
as the city needed him to do so while
it searched for a full-time attorney.
Worthington suggested looking at
PRM a law firm already working
with Gulfport on some issues. Ryer-
son said PRM functioned primarily
as insurance attorneys rather than
the sort of attorneys who could deal
with ordinances and charter issues.
Worthington also said that he wasn't
comfortable hiring Minkoff based on
a verbal proposal made at last week's
council meeting.
"I am not comfortable at all with
the verbal proposal we got from Mr.
Minkoff we got the other night. It's
rather expensive; $9,000 a month
plus expenses and what do the ex-
penses entail?' Worthington told
council.
Henderson pointed out that Minkoff
offered the city the same rate as
Driscoll did to continue working for
the city. Ryerson said she thought
finding an attorney with the right ex-
perience mattered.


"An attorney is an attorney. A doc-
tor is a doctor. The question comes is
finding an attorney with municipal
experience or knowledge; that is the
key question. I like your suggestion
of having somebody from the outside
do this," Ryerson said.
"Hiring an attorney, even for three
months, that is an interim attorney
with no experience in municipal law,
I think is a crime to our citizens of
Gulfport. The resume that he put in
the other day showed lots of experi-
ences that he has and there are no
municipal experiences. He belongs
to two clubs that he pays a yearly
fee to belong to those two clubs that
deal with municipal government but
he has no practical municipal gov-
ernment (experience)," Worthington
said.
Just before the vote, Worthington
said once more he felt the city was
making a mistake.
"I think we're going the wrong
thing," Worthington said "If this
isn't a railroad job, by God, I've nev-
er seen a railroad job."


Quotes From Friday's Special Meeting About Hiring an Attorney
"We need to deal with our interim situations. We have an interim city manager who's been asked to make
some very powerful suggestions and ideas and put forth the budget for this year. And he's got a lot to
deal with and he's under a lot of pressure because these people sitting right up here are the ones going
to decide whether he keeps his job or not. So what do you think he's going to say to anybody from up here
that goes in there and asks him a question, to go do something? You think he's going to say, no you can't
do that, that's against the law? I think he's in a very bad position right now and we need to go deal with
that before we deal with anything else."- Vice-Mayor Bob Worthington

"I would not want to see our new slogan say: the interim city by the bay'," Mark Epstein
"There's just so many delicate things hanging in the fire right now. I really hate to suddenly change.
We're in the middle of the...charter review. We need an attorney to attend those meetings. Right now
they're in danger of missing their deadlines because they can't get legal opinions until we make a move.
We're in the middle of annexation and everything else. We need somebody we can call who has experience
and knowledge today."- Councilwoman Judy Ryerson

"I believe what you're proposed is a workable plan. I have a couple of concerns. Hiring a firm to look for
a full time attorney is probably the only way we can do this anyway." Councilwoman Michele King about
Mayor Mike Yakes' proposal to hire a consultant to look for a full-time employee, give current attorney Tim Driscoll
a severance package, and hire Gulfport resident Tom Minkoff as the interim attorney

"I'd really like to know how that transpired." -Vice-Mayor Bob Worthington, questioning why Tom Minkoff
showed up at last week's special council meeting and presented his resume and applied for the position of interim
city attorney during the public session.

Concert, from front page
(which never did happen) and all
about swaying to the music. Lead
singer Jay Stephens jumped offstage
and ran into the crowd, grabbing la-
dies to dance.
In addition to the Budweiser beer
and wine truck, the Chamber also
offered fresh grilled hotdogs for two
bucks; a welcome addition that many
in the crowd were very happy about.
Chef Dave and Tim Coppola were
mostly in charge of the grill and the
Gulfport Little League kids helped
out at the booth. They sold over 120
hotdogs during the concert and put
some much needed money into the
coffers. Some of the money raised
goes to Gulfport Little League and
some goes to the Senior Center Food
Pantry, which, according to Cham-
ber President Lori Rosso, has been
quite empty lately. But Rosso was
very happy to tell the crowd that she
had just received a $250.00 donation
from the local law office of Deeb and
Elder, which will go directly to the
senior's food pantry.
"We're so happy with the atten-
dance the Concert is getting," Rosso
said. "We really wanted to put on an
event that showcases Gulfport. The
help and cooperation we're getting
from the Merchant's Association,
Chamber of Commerce and the City
is just great. Gulfport now has some-
thing to offer, whether it's music or
Art Walks, every weekend. You just
can't beat the Concert setting; on the
water at sunset."
People from as far away as Tampa
and Seminole were at Friday night's
concert; many had said they had
heard about it from the paper and
word of mouth.


Dunk to the music 18 year old John
Richardson goes in for a dunk in a pick -up
basketball game last Friday night at the Rec
Center. He and his buddies also lent a hand to
the Chamber of Commerce, helping set up the
stage for the Concert in the Park earlier that
evening, then got to play to the music. The
bball kids play basketball almost every night
from 6 to 9 pm at the Rec Center courts.

LOVE, WILLIAM J., "BILL", 51,
died July 5th at his home in Webster,
FL. Born in Rochester, NY, Bill was
a general contractor and resident of
Gulfport for many years before mov-
ing to "the country" with his wife
Sheila. Bill enjoyed raising some cat-
tle, always had dogs and cats around,
chickens, and a pig, tinkered in his
barn, was comfortable in an old pick
up more than a new one, worked hard
when there was a job to get done, and
looked forward to an annual open
house every fall. Scores of old and
new friends and family would de-
scend upon the farm. At night when
the sky was clear and the moon and
the stars shined brightly, there was
a burning campfire where tall tales
were told, stories from the past were
relived, politics were debated, and
sometimes un-welcomed singing was
inescapable. Laughing good times
were had, eyes reflected the happi-
ness within, and smiles defined the
moments into the wee hours of the
morning. It was at times like this
that Bill was free to be himself and
tell everyone how much they meant
to him in a very distinct Bill-way.
Through teasing, joking or serious
words, he provoked your attention.
He sought answers to the most per-
plexing of life's questions, was toler-
ant of others' views, and respected
opposing opinions and philosophies
even if unfathomable to him. Bill
often spoke with a heavy heart and
mind filled with sadness and worry
for others, for he easily recognized
and understood pains of the human
body and spirit. He would stand on
his head to make you happy or drop
everything if you needed help. His
circle of friends was wide and varied.
Bill is simply unforgettable. Whether
you loved him or he frustrated you,
his presence will be missed. He was,
"A Good Guy". His will be a special
loss to his tolerant and loving wife
Sheila ("Chicky"), his brother Bobby,
sisters Pat Carney, and Jean Rosado,
son David and wife Heather, daugh-
ter Jennifer Biddle & husband Nick,

Bugs, Mosh Pits

and Manners,

Oh My!

By Leigh Clifton
Every summer, the Jungle Boogie
day camp at Boyd Hill Nature Pre-
serve is alive with curious three and
four year olds, eager to learn about
bugs and reptiles, mosh pits and
manners. Offered during the summer
months, the weekly camp is offered
twice a month and is always full.
It's become one of the most popular
events of the summer.
Taught by Candy Arnold, a Park
ranger with the park, Jungle Boogie
focuses on the special developmen-
tal milestones every three and four
year old is expected to reach; small
motor skills, socialization, coordina-
tion and of course, fun. Arnold, who is
finishing up an Early Childhood De-
velopment degree at SPC, says she's
learned so much from that program
and she applies it every day to the
kids. She's also a self-taught botanist
and a large part of her program with
the children involves what she calls
scales, fur and feathers; a study of
reptiles, mammals and birds as well
as the many bugs and plants found at
Boyd Hill.
"I've learned what three and four
year olds want and I tailor the learn-
ing to those levels," Arnold said. "So
when we study bugs,(today it's lady
bugs), I incorporate counting, like
the spots on the wings, socialization
and cooperation among the kids, the

bug's diet, we looked for aphids on
the leaves outside, and we give them
live lady bugs to care for, which
teaches them empathy and respon-
sibility. These are little people, but
they're still people and they learn to
appreciate nature, even at an early
age.
In between outside field trips, the
kids also have a great area inside the
building called the "mosh pit", with
padded floor and soft, cushy chairs
and pillows that the kids immedi-
ately jump into and start bouncing
around on. It's a great way to expend
some serious energy; no shoes al-
lowed. The kids absolutely loved it.
Three year old Carina Guiffre was
among the youngest at the camp
this week; she just turned three last
weekend and her mother Jennifer,
who is a teacher, was really happy
that Carina could attend the camp.
She thinks it's a great concept and
wonderful for the kids.
"She was nervous at first, but she
came home after the first day and
told me all about crickets; she was
so excited! Now she can't wait to get
here in the morning," Jennifer said.
Guiffre's older son, who is five, goes


to a different camp for older kids and
she' s grateful that there is a camp
for the younger ones.
"It's hard to find a camp for three
year olds," she said. "Most start at
five, so this is really great for her."
As the kids file out the door to wait-
ing parents, they look like a line of
giant lady bugs, adorned in home-
made lady bug wings and antennae.
Instead of aphids however, these
lady bugs will go home to milk and
cookies.

Somethi' Oin my mind
SBy Bill Northrop B_Northrop@theGabber.com

Sometimes you just Have to Bark


I ve been barking at geese. No,
really. I'm pretty good at it. I've
even got several barks like a
hound dog bark, a yap-yap bark, and
a kind of mongrel bark. The neigh-
bors are a little skeptical and maybe
annoyed, but then the geese are more
annoying.
The problem is that there about 100
to 150 geese living on a small man-
made lake along side one hole of a
golf course. They're not particularly
noisy, but what they leave behind
is, well, what they leave behind.
And, it's everywhere, rough, fairway,
pathway and nearby yards. One of
them is mine. Geese, by the way, are
protected and can't be harmed out of
hunting season.
I'm up north for a bit and the geese
are here and won't fly south until Oc-
tober or so which is about the time I


O


fly south. Getting them to go away, in
the meantime, is apparently impos-
sible unless you have a dog. Geese
are terrified of dogs walking or bark-
ing. Since we don't have a dog I bark
like one.
Surprise. It worked. The first time
I did it the geese waddled hurriedly
to the water. It even worked the sec-
ond or third time. I alternate barks
to give the illusion of multiple dogs
while hoping a real dog will come
along to lend credibility to my barks.
Our daughter's visiting Florida bred
and raised shepherd lent that cred-
ibility a couple of weeks ago and the
geese didn't return for three-quarters
of a day.
Last year the golf course owners
hired a guy with a dog and they
were effective. Tragically, and maybe
ironically, the guy drowned while

chasing geese in a kayak. The geese
came back and back and back. Now,
they're on to me. When I bark, the
geese stop what they're doing, start
moving to the water, then the ap-
pointed watch geese notice there are
no dogs and they halt the march. If I
walk up to them, they move slightly
and slowly and then the watch-geese
start hissing and taking steps toward
me. Then, I go back to the house.
Some of the neighbors like the geese.
They even feed them even though
they ( the geese) don't need it. I was
hoping the guy was feeding them poi-
son. No such luck. I do feel sorry for
one goose. He has a broken wing and
the others keep him at least 50 feet
away. Obviously, he won't be flying
south with them. Anyway, that's the
goose story.
However, I got to thinking that poli-
ticians are just like geese. Bark at the
politicians and they perk up, pay at-
tention, and quit encroaching. After
a while, though, they recognize that
a bark is just a bark unless there's a
dog, or dogs, along to add some sub-
stance. Protecting your wallet is just
like protecting your yard. A bark is
good, but bark and teeth are better.
Write, talk to, bark at your friend-
ly elected official. But, remember,
they're protected too and it takes a
lot of barking and a pack of dogs, and
action, to keep them in their place
and out of yours.

Sirata Beach Resort
Can Have Jet Skis
ST. PETE BEACH- City Commis-
sioners approved the Sirata Beach
Resort Settlement, which resolved
the jet ski debate between the city
and the Sirata. The city initially
rejected the Sirata's application to
operate four jet skis on the beach
and the case went to mediation.
Representatives for the Sirata ar-
gued that by not allowing the Sirata
to operate jet skis on the beach the
city would give the Tradewinds a
business advantage. If the city did
not agree to the settlement agree-
ment it would have to go back to
court to address the jet ski issues.
Although the Sirata made its ap-
plication before the Tradewinds to
operate jet skis, the city addressed
the Tradewinds application first
and then denied the Sirata applica-
tion.
"We think this is your best result
at your least cost," city attorney
Susan Churuti told council.
Mayor Mike Finnerty suggested
that the city remove all jet skis
from the beach.
"Make all the faces you want,"
Finnerty told the commission "I
think we should eliminate jetskis
from the beach. I think jet-skis are
too dangerous right now," Finnerty
said. Finnerty cited a recent law
enforcement report that gave injury
statistics for jet skis along Florida's
west coast. The report, Finnerty
noted, praised St. Pete Beach jet
ski operators for their safety, espe-
cially as compared to other opera-


















Gabber July 6 July 22, 2009


tors in Pinellas County.
St. Pete Beach voted 4-1 to approve
the agreement. Finnerty remained
the sole no vote for allowing jet skis
to operate at the Sirata.

How To Take Advantage
of the New Tax Laws
So you think the new administra-
tion's stimulus plan and economic
initiatives have nothing in them for
you? You might be wrong, says Kelli
B. Grant, who is the senior consum-
er reporter for SmartMoney, in a
recent article for Good Housekeep-
ing magazine. Here are a few of the
ways you might benefit:
--Buy a home. If you're a first-time
buyer, check out the tax credit avail-
able through November, which is
worth 10 percent of the purchase
price or up to $8,000. Conditions
you should know about: You cannot
have owned a home in the past three
years, and your combined annual
income as a married couple cannot
exceed $170,000. If you are single,
your annual income can't exceed
$95,000. If you already have made a
qualifying purchase, you can amend


your 2008 tax return to get the cash
now, without waiting for your 2009
filing.
--Refinance a mortgage. The ad-
ministration's new foreclosure-pre-
vention plan allows homeowners
who are mortgaged for as much as
105 percent of their homes' values
to refinance and lower their pay-
ments. If you think you might qual-
ify, call your lender and talk to cus-
tomer service. Qualifying loans will
be owned or guaranteed by Fannie
Mae or Freddie Mac. Just keep in
mind that to qualify, your current
payments must be up-to-date.
--Buy a new car. The stimulus plan
will get you a sales tax deduction
when you buy a new car, as long as
the price is less than $49,500, you
bought it on or after Feb. 17, 2009,
and your gross income is less than
$135,000 ($260,000 for a married
couple).


--Get green. Installing energy-effi-
cient windows in 2009 or 2010 may
qualify you for a tax deduction of up
to 30 percent of the purchase price.
Ditto for solar- and wind-energy
improvements. You can visit http://
www.EnergyStar.gov to see which
projects and products qualify for the
credit. With any luck, you've made
improvements already that qualify.
That means all that remains is pick-
ing up the dough.
--Pay for college. The Hope Schol-
arship Credit was replaced with the
beefier American Opportunity Tax
Credit. Claim this new stimulus
item and you should get back 100
percent of the first $2,000 plus 25
percent of the next $2,000 spent on
tuition, books, fees and other costs
for a college, trade-school or univer-
sity education, provided you attend
school on at least a half-time ba-
sis. To learn more about this credit
plus other opportunities, visit http://
www.ed.gov.
--Modify a mortgage. Families
struggling with mortgage payments
may qualify for loan modifications if
their payments (including taxes and
homeowners insurance) are greater
than 31 percent of their monthly
pretax incomes. The government
anticipates that some households
will save more than $400 per month.
Visit http://www.MakingHomeAf-
fordable.gov or call 888-995-4673 to
see whether you qualify.

It was an early morning Fourth of July for Gulfport Chamber President, Lori Rosso,
interviewed by Dave McKay of ABC-TV's Tampa affiliate WFTS. The station did a series
of live remote broadcasts from waterfront locations, including the Recreation Center and
the city pier, over the holiday morning. Also on hand for interviews were Vice-Mayor
Bob Worthington, Interim City Manager Jim O'Reilly, Council member Michele King and
Chamber of Commerce president Lori Rosso. Gulfport was promoted as "the gateway to
the Gulf."

Creative Clay Opens New Gallery
By Leigh Clifton

Creative Clay opened their
newest gallery last Saturday
evening with a show titled
"Let's Face It", a collection
of member and guest artists
whose works of portraiture
and figurative art featured
people and faces. One of the
highlights of the opening was
the new 3-D gallery, located
next door of the main studio
gallery, where intricately
S n designed plaster mold masks
of actual students adorn the
walls and primitive dolls made
by artists sit on shelves in the
corner. The art is eclectic,
detailed and extremely good;
the member artists are very
talented and not seemingly
Ally Vasquez show off one of her whimsical creature hampered by their handicap.
drawings at the galley at Creative Clay. Creative Clay is the brainchild
of Grace -Anne Alfiero, who
wanted to provide an artistic
outlet for handicapped and mentally challenged artists in the community. There
are several programs offered, including the Transition program for students
18-22, who have graduated from high school. The program involves building
social skills, teaching the history of art, design and portfolio development. The
students must be referred by a high school teacher, and need to show their
artwork to be considered for the program. Smart Art is a program that meets
on Saturdays; the member artists work with the five fulltime studio instructors.
Art Link is a mentoring program that pairs Creative Clay member artists with
local and sometimes nationally recognized artists for a year. The member artists
work in the guest artist's medium and exhibit several times a year. There are
also daily and weekly art classes at the main gallery and students go out into
the community, often to the Gulfport Library, Industrial Art Center and many
of Gulfport's local galleries. Because Creative Clay is a non-profit, community
donation, grants and endowments as well as member artist's supplemental
income fuel the daily operations. It is a highly successful and rewarding
enterprise that benefits students and community alike. Many of the artists do
very well selling their art; artist Ally Vasquez is a member of Smart Art and
one of the more popular ones. Her subjects resemble mythical creatures and are
both colorful and whimsical. She recently had a piece displayed in the Bank of
America building, which was then sold to a private buyer. She has another piece
in the Vinoy Basin Condos. Her father, Maurice Vasquez, is also an artist and
very proud of his 19 year old daughter.
Chris Fontaine, a member artist with Creative Clay for seven and a half years,
has been a member of Art Link and has paired with local artist/photographer
Jack Breit. They will spend the next 50 weeks working on projects together and
Breit had nothing but wonderful things to say about Chris.
"He's amazing; he's never had any formal photography training and his
photographs are really good. We've even been working on Photoshop and
printing. Chris will sketch something, and then bring it to me. Then we'll go and
photograph the subject."
Chris is also an accomplished painter and had several paintings in the Let's

A Blue Devil

in our Midst
By Leigh Clifton

If you watched the Fourth of July
parade in Gulfport, you probably
noticed a soldier in khaki uniform
marching alone among the many,
carrying the American flag with
quiet grace and dignity. He marches
alone every year in the parade as a
testament to his fallen brothers of
the 88th Division, Fifth Army. He
is solemn and tough, one of the last
remnants of the very first all-draftee-
led armed forces division in WWII to
see combat. And he is also proud of
that division's nickname, The Blue
Devils, given to them by Axis Sally, a
German propagandist, and a German
army long since defeated and buried
on the banks of Italy's Garigliano
River. The Blue Devils were boys
that were so tough, so gritty that the
Germans once complained that 'they
didn't fight like gentlemen', a remark
that made every member of the unit
proud, but perhaps Irving Zeider the
proudest of them all.
But they didn't start out that way.
Originally stationed in Oklahoma, the
88th Division consisted of farmers,
embalmers, craftsmen, hot dog
sellers and civilians; men drafted to
fight a war most deemed unfinished
business from the first one. Zeider
was a married man of 23, a farmer
from Connecticut who worked his
father's farm raising peaches, cattle
and chickens. His wife Silvia was
20; they had been introduced to one
another as a blind date and married
shortly thereafter. Zeider was a
strapping, well-built guy who, in 18
bouts of amateur boxing, had never
lost a fight. He was strong as an ox,
tough and robust, and when he was
drafted, didn't hesitate to serve.
"I went in as a combat engineer,"
he said. "I knew all about dynamite
so my training was in disarming
and clearing landmines and other
ordinance. President Roosevelt
himself came out to Oklahoma to
inspect our division. We were very
proud of that."
But any thought of staying stateside
was quickly dispelled when the 88th
was shipped to Africa and then on to
Italy, where there was real fighting as
the Germans were trying to hold the
Gustav Line.
"We sat and waited many, many
Gabber July 16- July 22, 2009


Irving Zeider stands in front of photgraphs of himself and his wife Silvia, taken over 70 year
ago. Zeider was a combat engineer member of the 88th Division, Fifth Army and fought in
WWII, earning two Purple Hearts after being wounded twice. He can still fit into his Army
uniform and wears his medals proudly.


nights. My job was to go ahead of the
troops and clear the road of any mines.
We were under fire all the time; we
had to work fast with bullets flying by
our ears and bouncing off of helmets.
We lost a lot of guys; we were the first
ones to go forward, and the Germans
picked off quite a few of us," Zeider
smiled at the memory.
At one critical point during the
war, the 88th was burrowed into the
crevices along the Garigliano River;
pinned down while the Germans had
the advantage of height along the
mountainous routes above. There had
been skirmishes here and there, but
on May 11, after what was termed
the "quiet war" by some, the night
sky lit up with a tremendous show of
American firepower. The whole of the
Fifth Army had shown up.
"Night became the day," Zeider
said. From our positions we looked
up into the night sky and all we saw
were American planes dropping bomb
after bomb on the Germans above us.
The Fifth had brought Tommy guns,
Howitzers, tanks and there were
millions of rounds of ammunition
flying above our heads. We knocked
out every German for ten miles, they
were laid out everywhere and about
40 of them surrendered right there at
the river. I'll never forget that day,"
he said, "as long as I live."
The push of the 88th and the Fifth
Army had opened up the route to
Mount Damiano and Castelforte, once
both strongholds for the Germans. It
was a pivotal battle of the war.


Zeider didn't get out of the war
unscathed, however. He was wounded
twice and awarded two Purple Hearts.
But the most important insignias
he wears are his four stripes,
representing two years of combat
service and his four battle stars, both
of which he wears proudly. He flies
the American flag seven days a week
from his balcony in Town Shores, and
at 93, still works out every morning
with a regimen that a man half his
age would find a challenge. He is
still incredibly strong and credits his
resilience in that, other than a bit of
wine at Synagogue, neither he nor
Silvia have ever smoked or touched
a drop of liquor in their lives. One of
his and wife Silvia's greatest sorrows,
however, is the loss of both of their
children, a son and a daughter, but
they have two beautiful grandchildren
and two great-grandchildren, all of
whom live close by.
"I'll never get old," Zeider laughs.
"I run all day, I help out with the
handyman duties at the Synagogue,
I keep busy. I've had a good, long
life and I'm proud to have served my
country."
Silvia, his wife of 70 years, sums
Zeider up rather succinctly.
"There's not a lazy bone in his body.
He has always been there to help
people if they need it."
The two of them smile at one another
fondly; after 70 years, there's no need
for words.







"Buying Back Brooklyn" Pinnacle of

Gulfport Summer One Acts
By Cathy Salustri


Norm Nash and Glynn Suyker and deliver peak performances in Tinamarie Hansen's
Back Brooklyn" during the Players' Summer One-Act Festival.


At the 9th Annual Gulfport Com-
munity Players' Summer One-Act
Festival Saturday night, local play-
wrights delivered nine short plays
that delighted audiences. All nine
plays drew cheers of appreciation
from the audience and the Players
successfully picked a mixed bag of
dramas and comedies written well
for the Gulfport audience.
Among the short plays was Tina-
marie Hansen's "Buying Back Brook-
lyn", by far the strongest example
of Gulfport's pool of artists. Hansen
made her directorial debut, expertly
moving Norm Nash and Glenn Suyk-
er, the two lead actors, around the
stage and getting peak performances
from both men.
"Buying Back Brooklyn" plays out
the "you can't go home again" prem-
ise with empathy, compassion, and
brevity. Hansen's work reveals her


masterful command of dialogue, a dif-
ficult task for any writer. Her words
flow nicely and allow the actors to
create a steady energy throughout
the piece.
Both Nash and Suyker take Han-
sen's work and make her words their
own, creating dynamic characters
who draw empathy from the audi-
ence. I'd seen both these men before
in other performances as, I'm certain,
has most of the Gulfport theatre-go-
ing community, and this play shows
them at their best.
Audiences expressed their apprecia-
tion most heartily for Hansen's "Buy-
ing Back Brooklyn" but also seemed
enchanted with the nine other plays
the Players presented as part of the
festival. Vic Carr's hat trick of one-
acts, "The Trip", "The Check is in
The Mail", and "I'll Respect You in
the Morning" drew laughter and ap-


plause, although Carr's consistent
caricature of a sniping woman grew
tiring by the end of the third play.
"The Check is in the Mail" lasts a few
minutes longer than it needs to but
is well-written with a great twist to-
wards the end.
"Justice Now", a spoof on game
shows written by Dave Smith, spoke
to the current economic situation.
Mike Baggs, who played the presi-
dent of the "Too Big To Fail Bank",
drew boos and hisses when the an-
nouncer asked for audience partici-
pation, and his sentence of sitting
through an endless St. Pete Beach
Commission meeting drew whistles
of approval.
In "The Piano Lesson" Jim Rus-
sell delivered an energetic and tal-
ented performance as a snotty piano
teacher. His character's comic value
is matched only by Caitlein Jammo's
portrayal as his fresh-faced student.
The nice thing about the one act fes-
tival is that the Players have some-
thing for everyone, and if one play
doesn't please you, wait ten minutes
and the next one offers you some-
thing different.
The Summer One Act Festival of-
fers a robust representation of local
writing and acting talent and runs
through this weekend at the Cath-
erine Hickman theatre in Gulfport.

Voters Ask SPB
Commission To
Simplify Proposed
Charter Changes
ST. PETE BEACH: City
Commissioners heard
from more than a dozen
residents on Monday night,
at a workshop meeting
regarding proposed changes
to Sections 3.15 and 3.18
of the St. Pete Beach city
charter. The changes are
grouped as ordinance 2009-
12, a measure intended
to limit the number and
types of amendments to the
city's comprehensive plan
requiring voter approval.
And the most often heard
word of the night from
citizens was, "simplify."
Commissioners sought
voter input on the proposed
ordinance which, if it
moves forward, must be
submitted by an August 1
deadline in order to make
the November 3rd election
ballot. Currently, residents
must vote on comp plan
amendments which are
already state mandated
or are not sufficiently
fundamental to need voter
approval. The changes are
designed to save the city
time and money, where
possible.
The proposal had been
initiated by Commissioner
Beverly Garnett as a
reaction to voter feedback
she'd received, citing past
confusion with state-
mandated revisions and a
desire "to make it easier
for residents to vote on
what we really need to vote
on." City Manager Mike


Bonfield noted Monday that
the original wording of the
proposed changes had been
recently revised. However,
much discussion ensued
when City Attorney Susan
Churuti, substituting for
Mike Davis, who was away,
read the new versions of the
Sections aloud.
There was particular
confusion on what was
viewed as overly complicated
wording in Section 3.18 in
particular, dealing with
priotizing the comp plan
versus land development
regulations (LDRs). It was
decided to have the attorneys
again revise the Section,
in time for discussion
at Tuesday's regular
Commission meeting.
Additionally, Commissioner
Chris Leonard suggested
the members seek input
from the Planning Board,
which was to hold its
regular meeting this past
Wednesday. Leonard said
the ordinance "will reduce
confusion and minimize
potential litigation."
However, most residents
who spoke at the workshop
felt the ordinance's original
language better served its
intent, a sentiment earlier
shared by Commissioners
Jim Parent and Al Halpern.
Halpern disagreed with the
idea of bringing the Planning
Board into the matter, as
the ordinance is on the level
of a charter revision.
St. Pete Beach resident
Jim Anderson led off the
voter input segment of the
workshop by stressing that
the wording of the ordinance
"needs to be simplified to the
sixth grade level." In what


became another common
theme, he said that voters
need to retain the right to
vote on height requirements,
regarding future
development. "I fought hard
for this." Anderson said he
fears more litigation in the
future if the ordinance is not
clearly defined, something
the city's overburdened
legal fund could not absorb.
The city has already spent
$242,000 this year in fees
fighting residents' lawsuits
dealing with development
and previous ballot votes.
While some residents
expressed support for the
Commission's intent to
save money and streamline
future charter votes,
there were hints that not
all present were in line.
Robert Irvine suggested
that "residents need a clear
reason be given, if (voting)
rights are taken away. This
undermines our confidence
in the Commission."
Another resident asked that
the Sections be reworded to
"articulate the intent" of the
proposed changes, as a fall-
back in situations where the
issue before voters wasn't
clear on the ballot.
Dr. Bill Pyle, who has filed
a series of ongoing legal
actions against the city over
charter and voting issues,
stated it isn't necessary to
make changes at all. The
existing Sections should be
left as they are, allowing
voters the greatest flexibility
in having a direct hand
in development decisions,
especially regarding height
issues. "Sometimes,
democracy is a little
messy. I'm worried about


the slippery slope of ballot
challenges." Debra Sheckner
felt the amendments "will
take away our right to vote
on matters that go way
beyond state-mandated
changes. This is not right.
It's not fair, although I
know the Commission didn't
intend for this to happen."
Planning Board member
Linda Chaney agreed with
Sheckner, claiming, "We
still have Commissioners
who are (allied with) special
interests. The only fail safe
is to give voters the final
say.
Following citizens'
comments, Mayor Mike
Finnerty offered his take
on the matter. While
commending the spirit
of the proposal, in that it
would help trim the city's
budget, he said he was not in
support of the amendments.
"We've got to walk before we
can run." he noted.
Other Commissioners
then took pains to explain
their support of the charter
changes. Halpern stressed
the cost savings to the city.
Said Parent, "We're not
removing voters' rights.
We're working with ballot
language here and then
we turn this back to the
voters. We're trying to save
election costs." Struggling
briefly with the wording
of a clause in the revised
ordinance, Parent noted
that, "I'm an engineer, not
a political science major... or
a linguist." Said Leonard,
"This Commission is striving
for simplicity and clarity
here; that we do it right."
