Truck Crashing Into K. Kringles
Can't Keep Shop Closed


6999) 693

By Cathy Salustri
Debbie Hardigan reopened her St. Pete Beach K. Kringle's Christ-

City Supplies Resource Officer
GULFPORT- Police will continue to provide a school resource
officer for Boca Ciega High School but Pinellas County will
provide forensic crime scene services as well as property and
evidence and collection and storage services. City Council
voted to approve both contracts.
"How wonderful it is that we don't need to have a forensic
team in the city of Gulfport," councilman Sam Henderson
said.

No. 211 July 2, 2009 July 2,g2009


Annexation
Attempt Will
Continue
GULFPORT- Residents in the
unincorporated area of Pinellas
County adjacent to Gulfport
will once again get a chance
to vote on whether or not they
want to formally join Gulfport.
City Council unanimously
passed Ordinance 2009-10. This
ordinance will put a referendum
on the ballot so that residents
of the unincorporated area of
Pinellas County adjacent to
Gulfport can vote on whether or
not to allow Gulfport to annex
them.
"We think we have the best city
in Pinellas County. Your tax base
is lower. You would not pay for
fire. You have the police station
down the street, you have city hall
down the street," Councilwoman
Michele King explained.
"This ordinance tonight? We're
passing it just so we can move to
the next step. If the referendum
fails, this becomes null and void.
Don't think you're going to be
locked into anything tonight,"
Councilwoman Judy Ryerson
said.

Marina District Block Party Discusses Crime Awareness
By Leigh Clifton


About 30 people gathered at Dave Dant's
Marina District home on the water last
Saturday morning for a Block Party and
Crime Awareness meeting. The event was
organized by Nancy Robinson. Amid donuts
and coffee, muffins and OJ, the group sat
and listened as Gulfport Police Sergeant
Josh Stone met with the citizens to discuss
the recent spate of crime in the area. Stone
listened as concern for the area grows
among the locals; many attending had
been themselves victims of crime. Several
residents of Gulfport Shores have had

Truck Crashing Into
K. Kringles Can't
Keep Shop Closed

Although a Pinellas County Utilities
truck damaged structural supports
when it crashed into K. Kringle's
Holiday Shoppe last Monday
afternoon, shop owner Debbie
Hardigan says the shop will reopen
for business this week.
Last Monday afternoon a Pinellas
County Utilities truck drove into K.
Kringle's Holiday Shoppe, damaging
a support wall severely enough that
St. Pete Beach public safety crews
would not remove the truck until
shoring up the building around the
support wall.
"Whenever you have an incident
such as that, when you're not
100% sure how that building was
constructed- there was limited
building codes throughout Florida
in the 60s," public safety crews
approach the situation with caution
in regards to the structural integrity
of the building, Fire Marshall
Ernie Hand told The Gabber. "I
was extremely uncomfortable with
what I'd seen with the portion of the
building that did collapse because of
the impact (of the truck driving into
it.) I felt more comfortable having
the tech rescue come out and shore
up the building before I moved the
truck."
Somehow the driver, 32-year-old
Pinellas County Utilities employee
Kenneth Houston, managed to cross
four lanes of traffic instead of making
a right turn onto 75th Avenue and
smash through the front plate glass

window of the holiday-themed
shop whose large display windows
welcomed visitors to St. Pete Beach
for over seven years.
Hardigan, who owns the shop but
not the land, said that construction
crews will begin "walling off the
bad part" Saturday morning and
she expects to reopen around the
construction Monday morning.
"It's probably going to be noisy and
loud but I think we'll be open for
business," Hardigan said.


Not every business can reopen so
quickly after a disaster. Monster
Pizza, a small St. Pete Beach
restaurant, suffered a kitchen fire
earlier this summer and still has not
reopened. The Gabber cannot reach
the owners to determine whether or
not they will reopen.
Hardigan, though, optimistic.
"It's gong to be an inconvenience for
a while but everything will go on,"
she promised.

FEMA Informational
Meeting Changed
Due to a schedule change, FEMA
will now be hosting an informational
meeting on Thursday, July 30 at
6:30 p.m. at the new location of the
Catherine Hickman Theater at 5501
27 Avenue S. Panel guests include:
Bob Durrin from FEMA, Mike
Whitman from Whitco Insurance

related issues will also be covered.
Subjects will also include the
Community Rating System program
in which the City participates
in beyond the NFIP minimum
requirements. In doing so, the City
residents who own property within
the designated 100-year floodplain

PROTECT
Florida's Water













WHAT IS STORM WATER?
Stormwater is not clean water;
stormwater runoff carries pollut-
ants that seriously harm our
waters! It is the rain that flows off
streets, rooftops and lawns that
carries salt, sand, gasoline, pet
wastes, soil, pesticides,
fertilziers, leaves and grass
clippings, oil, litter and many
other polluntants into storm
drains.
WHERE DOES THIS GO? A
common misconception is that
water running off streets goes
into a sewage treatment plant it
does not! Stormwater usually
receives no treatment and water
that runs off lawns, streets and
parking lots flow directly into our
waterways, streams, rivers, bays
and eventually the Gulf of
Mexico.
As the stormwater flows across
pavements, lawns and fields, it
picks up pollution and carries it
directly into the City's storm
drains (sewers).


WE ALL CAN HELP!!

Don't overuse fertilizers, pesticides or herbicides. REMEMBER,
what you put on your lawn may eventually find its way into our
waters.
> Don't improperly dispose of automotive fluids (motor oil, anitfreeze,
transmission and brake fluids). Don't let them drain into your drive
way or lawn, and make sure they are contained and disposed of
properly.
Don't dump yard waste (grass clippings, leaves, etc.) into ditches,
canals or storm drains.
Don't drain swimming pools onto streets, ditches or lawns.
Don't wash your vehicle(s) on the driveway. Wash cars on the lawn
or take to a commercial car wash.
> Clean up pet waste bury it or flush down toilets.

The amount of pollution that you stop may seem small, but together
it all adds up to cleaner water for everyone to enjoy!


People deliberately dumping or discharging debris or hazardous materials into our
drains are breaking the law, and sometimes they know it but do it anyway. If you do
not feel comfortable confronting them about it, report it to the City of Gulfport Code
Enforcement at 893-1061 or the Police Department at 893-1030.

Also, the Pinellas County Department of Environment Management can be
contacted at (727) 464-4425 or their automated stormwater watchline at
(727) 464-5060.

Crime Awareness,
from front page
cars that had either been vandalized
or stolen outright. Linda Laws, who
lives at Gulfport Shores, had her
car stolen from the parking lot on a
Friday night. It was later found two
days later on Sunday night in St Pete.
Laws' insurance doesn't cover theft, so
she is now at a loss to fix the damage
the thieves did to the car.
"It's been hard," she said. "It
definitely makes you feel violated and
it's hard to feel safe in your own home
when something like this happens to
you.
Sgt. Stone acknowledged that most
of the criminal activity stems from
people outside of Gulfport coming into
the city for mischief.
"We're very lucky not to have a lot
of violent crime in Gulfport. But petty
theft and burglary are on the rise
here and you, as citizens, have to be
the community watch dogs. You, as a
group, need to organize neighborhood
patrols. You can do it on foot, on a
bike or in your car. Keep a cell phone
handy. If something or someone looks
suspicious, call the police. If they just
don't look right or seem out of place,
call us. We would rather respond to
a call that turns out to be nothing,
rather than hear later that someone
was burglarized."
It seemed to be a general consensus
among the folks gathered that some
weren't sure when it was appropriate
to call the police. Stone assured them
that if they think the police should be
there to check things out, call them
and they will come.
One interesting piece of information
from Sgt. Stoneconcernedsolicitations,
like the guy who walks up to your
house with a lawnmower, wanting to
cut your grass.
"In the city of Gulfport, those people
are required to have a permit from
City Hall and they're supposed to wear
a badge. If they walk up to your house
without one, they are in violation of
the law."
While it might seem somewhat
innocuous if a guy wants to mow
your lawn, Stone stressed that many
of the crimes against the elderly
often are results of push and shoves;
a person answers the door and the
criminal pushes his way in before the
homeownercanreact. Statistics dictate
that most burglaries occur during the
daytime; between 8 am and 4 pm,

Gabber July 23 July 29, 2009


when most people are at work, while
most auto break-ins occur at night.
Bunny Mirth, who lives next door to
Dave Dant, was held up at gunpoint a
while ago, and most recently, a thief
stole her keys from her door while she
was lugging in groceries, then tried
for the next three days to get into
her car and house. Dant, who was
very involved with Crime Solvers in
P.G. County, Maryland, thinks that
Gulfport residents should take their
safety more seriously and be much
more proactive and aware.
"We used to leave our cars unlocked,
but both mine and my girlfriend's

N i tX oLm a


were broken into. Now we lock them
up of course.
Sgt. Stone told the crowd how he
often deters a would-be criminal; he
says Hi to him and asks them how
they are.
"By showing contact with the guy,
it's an effective way to let them know
they're being watched," he said. "Most
times they just leave the area."
The meeting adjourned with a
sharing of emails and phone numbers
among the neighbors and friends and
vows of renewed vigilance.

From the Gulfport
Police
Gulfport police report that an
elderly couple in the 5500 block
of 13th Avenue told police that an
unknown black male walked into
their residence and sat down "like
he owned the place". His identity is
unknown at this time, and the couple
will call back if they see him again.
On July 14 Gulfport police arrived at
the 5300 block of 8th Avenue, called
there regarding a drunk person lying
in the street. Officer Motte located
the person who police identified as
Joshua Perry. Police say "Perry was
very uncooperative and very drunk,
cursing at the officers as they tried
to help him. When police tried to
take him into protective custody, he
fought them and required a dose of
pepper spray to be restrained."

Clothing Swap
This Saturday
It's time for another Clothing Swap!
LocalShopsl.com has partnered
with Gulfport Goes Green to help
you update your wardrobe, for free.
Here is how it works: You bring
gently used clothes you don't want
anymore, and you trade them in
for clothes and accessories other
people have dropped off. To get us
all started, Spinderella's Steals, a
resale boutique in St. Petersburg,
is donating a ton of clothes.
After everyone is done swapping,
everything that's left over goes to
the Salvation Army.
The clothing swap is part of a
monthly expo focused on green and
healthy living. Other events include
computer recycling, a book swap,
green vendors and more. The event
takes place on the fourth Saturday
of each month from 10 a.m. through
5 p.m. along Beach Boulevard in the
Gulfport Waterfront District. For

ICT Auditions for
"Educating Rita"
Island Community Theatre live
theater for the movie generation
announces auditions for the
bittersweet "Educating Rita" at
7 p.m. Sunday and Monday,
August 9 and 10. Auditions will be
held at Treasure Island City Hall
Auditorium, 120 108 Avenue in
Treasure Island.
A frustrated poet, Frank Bryant is
a professor of English who drowns
his disillusions with whiskey.
Bored with the humdrum of being a
hairdresser and her unenlightened
social circle, Rita enrolls in a
literature review at the college. The
two embark on a frequently funny,
sometimes rocky mission of self
discovery. Written by Willy Russell
(who also wrote Shirley Valentine
and Blood Brothers), Educating Rita
is often described as a modern-day
Pygmalion.


Gabber July 23 July 29, 2009


Needed are one woman, age range
mid to late 20s to 30s; and one man,
mid to late 40s to 50s. No roles have
been precast. Auditions will be cold
readings from the script, but if you
wish to prepare a monologue of no
more than 2 minutes, the director
will be pleased. Bring a theatrical
experience resume if you have one.
ICT needs volunteers! Anyone
interested in being a stage
manager, working backstage, lights,
sound, helping with costumes


or set construction, publicity or
fundraising? We would love to hear
from you, too. No experience? No
problem! Teaching is part of what
we do.
Eight performances of Educating
Rita are scheduled for October
8-18 at the Catherine Hickman
Theatre in Gulfport's Arts District.
Performances are at 8 p.m.
Thursdays through Saturdays, and
1:30 p.m. matinees on Sundays.

Tom Atkins, Gulfport: "I wish everyone could have medical care. I think the President
has some good ideas and I don't think that socialized medicine is on his mind. The plan
won't change the way we see our doctors; our medical coverage would stay the same,
because I have Blue Cross/Blue Shield paid for by my pension and that's guaranteed for
life. But there are so many people who really need health care that can't get it, either
because the private insurance companies are so expensive or they have a pre-existing
condition. Obama's plan will probably hurt some of the private insurance companies;
they've had it good for so long and I really don't care about that. I read in the paper
that the way he would fund it would be to raise taxes for the wealthy people, who can
afford it. I don't have a problem with that either. For people making $450,000 a year, I
read that it might cost them and extra $1000 in taxes that they can afford. Let them go
uninsured and see how they like it. There are a lot of people, especially children, who
desperately need health insurance and Obama's plan would help them a lot."


Myrna Gulish, St. Pete: "I think something has to be done. It should have been done
years ago when Hillary Clinton was trying to put through legislation for health care
reform when her husband was President. If she had been allowed to be successful,
we might be a whole lot farther ahead today. People would have more generalized
coverage. President Obama is trying to do a very positive thing and I hope he gets
his initiatives through. I'm 72 and I have Medicare and supplemental insurance for
whatever Medicare doesn't cover. But both of those have gone up and up! I had a bad
car accident when I was young and subsequently had 4 hip surgeries, two of which
were paid by Medicare. But the paperwork is just a mess and very confusing. With
Obama's plan, he wants to cut through the paperwork and computerize the whole
system. That means that doctors could see one another's notes about a mutual patient, L A 4
they could access x-rays right away. It would just be so much more efficient, good for
care in a more timely manner."

Jim Wright, Gulfport: "It's going to cost a lot of money, but there's two ways to look
at it. We're already paying for healthcare for the uninsured every time a homeless guy
goes to the hospital. The people that already have health insurance are subsidizing
the ones who don't. If they're really serious about preventative medicine, then I think
Obama's plane will save some money in the long run. In Massachusetts, they've gone
to a compulsory system, where everyone is required to have health insurance. I'm not
sure if Obama will make his plan compulsory; I think that would be difficult for people
to pay, especially in this down economy where people are losing their jobs and homes.
They say it costs about $2500. a year. My Blue Cross/Blue Shield is about that. I don't
see how Obama can make his plan any cheaper. I think that one plus is that they will
accept anyone with a pre-existing condition; obviously that's a good thing. But some
people don't even have the money for that. Will they have co-pay with this plan? What
about people on fixed incomes? If I died, my wife would get my Social Security and
part of my pension, but she couldn't live on that. She would probably have trouble paying the premiums and would possibly
drop it."


Alyssa Collazo, Gulfport: "Obama's plan would definitely affect me and hopefully
for the better. I have three daughters and one is currently uninsured, one is under
Medicaid and one is on her father's insurance. I'm in a strange position in that as a
state of Florida employee, I'm automatically required to pay the highest premiums for
my kids' health insurance. So the President's plan would help my uninsured daugh-
ter. All children need health insurance. If the new plan drives other private health
insurance companies out of business, which would be great! They're sharks and feed
off of other peoples' misery. I hope that somebody starts a health care revolution.
That's what we need to get this thing going. We need to stop throwing money at the
big health care companies and start investing in ourselves."

Thank you?
Dear Editor: I would like to thank
the gentleman driving the green Al-
tima near Gulfport McDonalds on
Tuesday afternoon, July 21. Thank
you for stopping and asking "What's
up?' when my son and his friend were
being attacked by three others.And
thanks a lot for doing nothing when
my son told you the three were steal-
ing their bikes. Your response was
something like "ah, no", you closed
your door and drove off. You are a
perfect example of what's wrong with
society today!
Would you like to know how the
victims are? Sleep on it! You know
the sad part? If it was you being vic-
timized, both of those young victims
would have summoned help for you.
Jeri Reed

Through the
Eye of the Tiger
Dear Editor: The caged live tiger
passed by as I watched this year's
4th of July, Gulfport parade. It
makes me sad to see such a beauti-
ful creature caged and paraded down
the streets in 90 degree heat. I hope
that we don't have caged wild ani-
mals at future parades and Gulfport
celebrations.

Annexation,
from front page
Gulfport first annexed the area under
discussion in 1910, Ryerson said, but
it was taken out during World War II
"when they wanted to use it to raise
cattle for the war effort."
"All this is for is to give us the
opportunity to show you what we
have," Vice-Mayor Bob Worthington
told the crowd gathered in council
chambers.
Only the residents who live in the
area that may or may not get annexed
will get to vote on the annexation.
"We're providing you the
accountability," Interim City
Manager Jim O'Reilly told concerned
residents of unincorporated Pinellas
County who brought questions to
council about ordinance 2009-10.
"I will provide a police officer for
that area. You won't share with
Tierra Verde. We have officers who
patrol the Pasadena Yacht and
Country Club who would patrol your
area," O'Reilly added in response
to questions posed by the residents
facing a vote on annexation.
"Reapportionment would definitely
be at hand," Mayor Mike Yakes
said in response to questions about
what wards the annexed parts of
the unincorporated area would fall
under.


While most Gulfportians spoke
in favor of the annexation, most
unincorporated area residents in
attendanceexpressedless enthusiasm
about the annexation effort. Gulfport
resident Jim Greenwald asked why
the unincorporated residents who
said they wanted to be annexed in a
recent survey didn't show up at the
meeting. He asked the council to stop
spending money on the annexation
effort.
"I think you guys should just throw
in the towel and let Gulfport be
Gulfport," Greenwald said.
One unincorporated area resident,
Robert Biasotti, spoke in favor of the
annexation.
"I like the idea of having a mayor I
can all up rather than a county that I
can never get a hold of," Biasotti told
council.
Gulfport resident Bob Newcomb
urged unincorporated residents to
"listen before you leap.
"In union there is strength,"
Newcomb continued "Sitting as
individuals you're subject to whatever
wind blows in whatever way it blows.
You would be way ahead of the game
as part of our city."
Vice-Mayor Bob Worthington made
the motion to pass Ordinance 2009-
10 and implored unincorporated area
residents to get in touch with any
questions. Other councilmembers


assured the residents they could
and should contact them with any
questions.
"The next step," according to Fred
Metcalf, "is referendum."
For more information about
annexation, residents of the
unincorporated area of Pinellas
County can call their potential future
councilmembers at 893-1000 or
e-mail them through the Gulfport's
web site, ci.gulfport.fl.us.

her previous family had to move and the new lo-
cation didn't allow pets. She already knows how
S to sit, stay, shake and loves to play Frisbee and
fetch. Zoey is housebroken, friendly and has ex-
cellent leash manners, which is always the true
benefit of adopting an older pet. No training
needed, just insert love! Come on over to SPCA
Tampa Bay and "Get a Leash on Life"!! Zoey is
waiting for you, 9099 130 Avenue N. in Largo.

Excerpts heard at the July 21, 2009

Gulfport City Council Meeting


Public Comment


& Council Quotes


"I have a perception prob-
lem I'd like to bring up... We
perceive that maybe Council
has already decided that Mr.
O'Reilly is to be our city man-
ager... Let's get the perceptions
out of the way and let's get it
on the table. Let's get a real,
effective city manager."- John
Freiberger, who clarified his com-
ments by saying the city should
make the interim city manager,
Jim O'Reilly, the permanent city
manager.
"This is a menace that is not
going to go away. Maybe The
Gabber could allot a little time
each week to report those sight-
ings?" Michael O'Toole, about the
suddenly quite public presence of
coyotes in Gulfport

"One of the residents specifi-
cally sent a letter to you, Mr.
Mayor, to specifically request
that the vendors not set up in
front of their home. Well, they
were there today." -Deborah
Blake, about the Tuesday Morning
Market
"We're here to offer you service
and accountability."-Interim
City Manager Jim O'Reilly, to the
residents of the unincorporated
area attending the council meet-
ing to speak about the proposed
referendum that would allow those
residents to vote on if they wanted
to become part of Gulfport

"It's a great place to live and
it's your choice to decide."-
Mayor Mike Yakes, to the resi-
dents who may or may not vote to
annex themselves into the city of
Gulfport.

"Gulfport's just fine, but so am
L"- John Carney, about living in


the unincorporated area.


"My kids grew up in this neigh-
borhood and were blissfully
accepted in their exuberance,"
-Sandy Cannerolli, an unincorpo-
rated Pinellas County resident

"It was sort of a surprise...
we've been good neighbors for
so long and all of a sudden
you've hit us with a proposal of
marriage and there hasn't been
much of a courtship. We get
along as neighbors but when
you get married the situation is
a bit different. We're going to be
sharing the coyotes with you."
-Bill Israel

"What part of no didn't you
understand?" -Lorraine Biggs,
about the annexation.
"I don't have an answer,"
-Mayor Mike Yakes response to
Lorraine.

"I would like to bring forward
the passage of the interim city
manager to city manager."
-Mayor Mike Yakes. The city would
need to change its charter to re-
move the requirement that the city
manager live in Gulfport.

"I don't think there's anyone
up here who doesn't think Jim
wouldn't be a great city man-
ager. I think how we get from
Point A to Point B is the only
question."- Councilmember Mi-
chele King

"I don't want to change the
charter but this is a very dif-
ferent situation," -Councilman
Sam Henderson, about making Jim
O'Reilly the permanent city man-
ager

ANSWERS TO YOUR QUESTIONS ABOUT VEIN DISEASE
Corona Phlebectasia a sign of vein valve failure
What is corona phlebectasia? This is an important physical sign of vein disease. Corona
Phlebectasia is fan shaped pattern of small blue veins on the inside the ankle and instep of the
foot. It is thought to be an early sign of advanced vein disease it often indicates failed valves
in the greater saphenous vein, one of the five vein systems that drain the surface of each leg.
What should be done?
1st A venous insufficiency ultrasound done while standing (this is an issue of vein, valves and
gravity); (45 minutes)
2nd A simple laser closure of the failed vein; (20 minutes) (the leg will feel better and signs
and symptoms of venous valve insufficiency will begin to resolve)
3rd Several sessions of sclerotherapy to close blue veins at the foot and ankle (20 minutes
each) (the ankles and feet will look and feel much younger and there the chance of bleeding is
greatly reduced)
Why close the incompetent vein? Vein valve failure causes increased pressure in the veins below and this causes progressive symptoms and
signs. Unchecked, the venous hypertension that results from failed valves can cause deterioration of the skin, ulceration, edema, bleeding
varicosities, painful and tired legs, varicose veins with increased risk of phlebitis and deep vein clots. It is important to stop and repair the damage
this vein hypertension is causing. Early detection is important.
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 triaaers niaht cramps.

Gulfport Whys
Have you got a question?
E-mail your request to News@theGabber.com
By Cathy Salustri
Q: The building that used to house Aquabella's suddenly shows signs of life.
Did somebody buy it and for how much? What's going to be in there now?

A: According to Myra Schwarz, a Gulfport City Planner, on June 17 the city
received a business tax application to open the former Aquabella's building
as Roman Gardens. The business owner, Paege Chafin, currently owns the
Roman Gardens Ristorante at 25th and Central in St. Petersburg for the past
three years.
"My lease was up June 30 so I decided to move the restaurant," Chafin told The
Gabber "I knew I wanted to make it bigger and prettier. I've lived in Gulfport
for 10 years and I've wanted (the Aquabella's building) for five."
The Pinellas County Property Appraiser has no information about the build-
ing at 3128 Beach Boulevard South, the parcel number shows that Raw Capital
Futures purchased the building in September 2004 for $450,000. Raw Capital
Futures lists its Registered Agent as Jeffrey L. Mitchell, 6220 Pasadena Point
Boulevard South.
Chafin says Roman Gardens will open for business Saturday.

omthethin' o my mind

Validation for St. Pete Citizens


St. Pete's Albert Whitted Airport,
the two landing strip airport at the
east end of town, is featured in the
August edition of Smithsonian Insti-
tute's Air & Space magazine, a kind
of vindication for voters in the city.
I say vindication because, in 2003,
St. Pete's civic leaders, some politi-
cians, the St. Pete Times, and devel-
opers, tried to close it. They wanted
to turn it into a park, condo devel-
opment site and expansion acreage
for University of South Florida and
building of a convention center. The
voters, however, voted three to one to
keep it.
Getting the publicity in a national
magazine of considerable historical
stature, is good for St. Petersburg
which suffers from public neglect.
Tampa gets the attention. Think
Tampa Bay Rays. In fact, I'm often
asked "where is St. Petersburg?' I
have to say "near Tampa". That's
true even though St. Pete was an ear-
ly Florida tourist destination back in
the days of train travel.
According to the article, the airport
has been a target since it opened in
1935. And it does occupy a juicy piece
of land jutting a couple thousand feet
into the Bay. However, two or three
hundred people work there. That is,
there are jobs. These include me-
chanics and technicians and business
people. What it does is gives charac-
ter and an interesting mix of jobs to


downtown St. Pete in addition to pro-
viding a convenient landing field for
private aviation visitors. In the past,
I flew in a couple of times. It was
convenient, less costly than using
Tampa International, and provided
excellent service.
Apparently, for many cities, airports
are nuisances, potentially dangerous,
noisy, and occupying space that could
be used by political donors. Chicago,
the huge metropolis on Lake Michi-
gan, got rid of Meigs field in 2003 in
spite of the fact that its two commer-
cial airfields are jammed with traffic.
Happily, that didn't happen here.
Historically, the airport has signifi-
cance. The first nation's scheduled
airline was operated out of St. Pete.
It was a 21 mile seaplane shuttle to
Tampa. A replica of the plane is at
the St. Petersburg Museum of Histo-
ry also along the waterfront. To read
more about the airport try going to
www.airspacemag.com. I subscribe
to the magazine, but I imagine the
article is on the web edition.
The point, however, is not to pro-
mote the magazine, but to point out
that Albert Whitted airport can be
promoted for the good of the com-
munity. Airport supporters won the
battle to keep the airport but the
key is to promote its use. It can, and
already is to an extent, a center for
public use and education. It can be
more and already is more interesting
than another park.

Gulfport Centennial Countdown Continues!


4ufti o t's (etH tewiad

100 Week Countdown to 100 Years!

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

LAST WEEK'S ANSWER:
Last week's photo showed former City
Manager Bob Lee, and former coun-
cilmembers the late Ted Phillips and Col-
leen Camp about to cut the cake celebrat-
ing Gulfport's 84th birthday. Guess that
would make it 1994.
Looks like Stetson? No? The old Rolyat Hotel? No? What else was this
place? Answer next week.
Think you know the answer?

Buttercup
By Cathy Salustri

Jo Gonzalez-Hastings
wants the coyotes dead. Her
husband David doesn't.
"They didn't do it on
purpose, Jo. They did it
because that's how they
survive," David says
of the coyotes roaming
through their Pasadena
Yacht and Country Club
neighborhood. "No one can
convince me that these
animals need to die."
"Remember who your
cancer buddy was the
whole time you were sick?
Buttercup!" she argues
with David. "They killed
our pet! I understand they
have a right to be in nature
but they don't have a right
to be in a neighborhood."
David's cancer buddy,
Buttercup, was a stray
cat Jo and David adopted
eight years ago. A server
at their restaurant noticed
a cat hanging around
and brought the cat some
water and food. The server,
thinking the cat a female,
named him Buttercup.
Later that night David


found the stray sitting on
the dashboard of his car
when the restaurant closed
that night.
"He was like, I'm ready,
let's go!" David remembers.
Jo took Buttercup to the
vet, who scanned Buttercup
for a microchip. Jo tried to
return Buttercup to his
owner but found out the
owner had moved and
deliberately left Buttercup
behind. Buttercup officially
joined the Gonzalez-
Hastings household.
When doctors told David
he had head and neck
cancer, Buttercup stayed
by his side, refusing to go
out for his morning stretch.
He and Jo nursed David
through his illness.
"This cat, he always loved
going outside, and he would
not go outside," Jo says
when David leaves the room
to get a photo of Buttercup.
"He was basically in bed,
and Buttercup was there
the whole time."
Before David's illness
and after, Buttercup would
wake David up every
morning at 3 a.m. and
David would let him out.
A few hours later he would
return. In between, dogs,

in Gulfport. Photo by David Hastings


David and Jo Gonzalez-Hastings cat Buttercup was killed by a
coyote in Pasadena Yacht and Country Club.


cats and raccoons would
approach Buttercup. He
would lie there and let the
dogs lick him or play with
him. When David came
out later that morning
to get the paper he'd find
Buttercup waiting on their
porch.
"He was like the
goodwill ambassador back
there. Everybody loved
Buttercup," Jo remembers,
her eyes filling with tears.
On June 5, David let
Buttercup out. That
evening, Buttercup had
yet to return. The next day
they called the guards and
let them know Buttercup
had gone missing.
The Hastings family has
not seen Buttercup since.
While no one saw the
coyotes attack and kill
the Hastings family pet,
a neighbor found what
appeared to be a cat skull
and bloodstains. Jo found
animal droppings next to a
tiny flea collar.
Then the guards at the
Pasadena Yacht and
Country Club let it slip
that they'd known about
the coyotes in the Hastings'
neighborhood. David,
president of the bay Estates
sub association and the


larger Master's Association
at Pasadena Yacht and
Country Club, couldn't
believe the community's
guards hadn't mentioned
the coyotes to him or
anyone else.
"That's what pissed me
off, because they knew
about the coyotes at that
time and they didn't say,
'Oh, you know what? We've
had this report of a coyote'"
David says. "I interact with
them every single day. The
only thing my head guard
could say was, "I didn't
think it would matter."
"Buttercup would be alive
today. I wouldn't have let
him out if I had known there
was coyotes," David said.
"If the guards had heard
there was an alligator in
the street, wouldn't they
have said something to me?
I'm in charge of security; I
interact with them every
single day. If someone that
needs to be killed, it would
be the guards, not the
coyotes."
"Buttercup did not deserve
the horrendous death he
must have faced. I can just
imagine that he saw the
coyotes and went right up
to them," Jo says.

Silas Steakhouse & Seafood Grill:

A Tribute to Fine Food, Silas Dent, and Yesterday's Beach


By Cathy Salustri
If the phrase "Gulf Rim" con-
fuses you and makes you think
of all sorts of weird food, stop
right there, because that's not it at
all. Gulf Rim food is what you can
expect to find at real Florida, New
Orleans and Caribbean restau-
rants. It's all the food that makes
life along the the Gulf of Mexico a
gastronomic delight. It's what you
can expect at Silas Steakhouse &
Seafood Grill on St. Pete Beach.
The first time I ate at Silas' I
was told by friends that although
it was not the only place to get a
steak on St. Pete Beach, it was one
of the best places to get one.
While I got what I expected-
prime rib cooked the way I want-
ed it and so tender I didn't really
need a knife, bread with butter, a
big potato with all the fixings- all
those things had a little something
extra.
My bread wasn't just a little loaf
of bread, it was pretzel bread- and
it lives up to its name. Instead of
spreading regular butter on my
pretzel bread, Silas Steakhouse &
Seafood Grill serves Creole mustard
butter. Their baked potato comes
with a special blend of butter, sour
cream and seasonings as well
Owner Rob Stambaugh, one of
six generations of Floridians, says
that he and his wife Debbie wanted
to serve excellent food with extra
touches that spoke of life along the
Gulf of Mexico.
The restaurant's namesake, Silas
Dent, moved to Cabbage Key (now
Tierra Verde) from Georgia and tried
to start a dairy. That didn't really
work out so well, but Silas stayed
anyway and became something of a
hermit on the beaches.
Only at Christmas would Silas come
out of his shell and play Santa Claus
for the beach's annual Christmas
program. Rob, who grew up on the
homestead where PJ's Oyster Bar now
sells clams and mussels, remembers
Silas as one of the best things about
Christmas. When he decided to open
a restaurant 30 years ago, he knew
that if he could recreate that feeling

St. Pete Beach, Florida

Silas Steakhouse & Seafood Grill pays tribute to one of Tierra Verde's first residents, Silas
3ent. It also serves Gulf Rim cuisine, a mixture of Florida, New Orleans, and the Caribbean,


of growing up on the St. Pete Beach
of yesteryear he could share his love
of Florida history and culture with
everyone who came in to eat,
Walking into Silas Steakhouse &
Seafood Grill you can sense Rob and
Debbie's love for the area because
it's infused into every plate, bottle,
and piece of Florida memorobilia
along the walls,
"We tried to create a Florida
restaurant theme using items that
a hermit like Silas would have
collected.," Rob explains.
Life along the beaches may have
changed since Rob's childhood, and
Silas is long gone, but if you spend
time in Silas' Steakhouse and pay
attention to the decor-- and if you're
lucky enough to find Rob there-- you
can get a glimpse of what life was like
not even 50 years ago. It's a glimpse
into the beach's past that most people
don't get a chance to see.
It doesn't hurt that the food is
amazing, either. The steak, the fish,
the shrimp-- it's all top quality.
"We try to make as many of our
menu items homemade while putting
the Gulf Rim twist to it," Rob says.
Some of the things you must try
include firecraker shrimp, coconut
shrimp, prime rib, pretzcl-crusted
Mahi, and Born on the Bayou Gator.


There's three more things that make
Silas Steakhouse & Seafood Grill
even better: You can place a to-go
order online at SilasToGo.com, they
can cater any event, and they have
wedding and banquet facilities on
the beach.
If you haven't tried Silas Steak-
house & Seafood Grill, make some
time to go there soon. But make sure
you don't just dine and dash; spend
some time reading the stories that
accompany the restaurant's decor.
You'll get a great meal and certainly
feel a kinship not only with one of
Cabbage Key's first residents but
Rob and l)ebbie, who love the area
enough to make their restaurant a
tribute to it.

Patj Ad~r Il snclnt













SI~ ;BBy Cathy Salustri


I m confused. That's really not
unusual; I spend a lot of time
confused about a lot of things.
Most of those things don't matter
enough to try and work out, like why
my freezer won't keep ice frozen. These
sorts of things work themselves out
eventually; I can always get ice from
a neighbor. I've gotten quite good at
ignoring the voices in my head that ask
those sorts of questions.
Other voices don't go away as easily.
They start as whispers and get louder
and more annoying until I finally give
in and try to work out what's confusing
me. It's been like an Aerosmith concert
in there since Gulfport city council told
their attorney of 19 years they didn't
need him around anymore and hired
local attorney Tom Minkoff as the
interim city attorney.
I have no problem with Minkoff as a
person-I actually like him-and no
special loyalty to former Gulfport City
Attorney Tim Driscoll, although I like
him, too. I'm just confused as hell and,
according to e-mails and phone calls
I've gotten from Gulfportians as well as
some city staff, I have good company.
I'm confused as to why three out of
five council members think Gulfport
needs a full-time city attorney. The
Florida League of Cities seemed to
think small cities don't need full-
time attorneys unless, like Destin or
Sanibel, they have development issues.
Does someone on council think Gulfport
will have development issues someday
soon?
I'm confused as to whether or not this
was about Tim Driscoll. Mayor Mike
Yakes said it wasn't but council member
Michele King disagreed. I attended a
meeting some years back when Driscoll
did lose his composure and yes, some
of it was directed at King, but I also
remember that she didn't treat him
so nicely, either. Since then, Mayor
Yakes counseled Driscoll and several
meetings later council discussed that
they had seen an improvement in
Driscoll's performance. Even when
King said at the special meeting earlier
this month that it was about Driscoll,
his behavior epitomized class. The cost
comparisons doesn't make sense to
me; a full-time attorney seems like it's
going to cost the city more money, so it
seems as though this move was about


Driscoll. Did someone on council toy
with Driscoll's livelihood because he
had a bad night a few years ago?
I'm confused as to how the city expects
to afford a full-time attorney. According
to the US Department of Labor's
Occupational Outlook, municipal
attorneys for local government earn a
median salary of roughly $78,000. A
full-time attorney will want benefits
and the city will pay taxes, Medicare,
social security, and unemployment on
his salary, something they did not pay
a part-time attorney. The city's portion
of this will equal about 33% of the gross
salary, bringing his salary costs to
$102,000. The current budget for legal
matters, including an attorney's salary,
is $122,000. That leaves $20,000 for
support staff. That translates to $7 an
hour plus benefits for the attorney's
support staff. That leaves no wiggle
room for office furniture, law books, or
expenses. It also leaves no money for
any court costs. Where does that money
come from?
I'm confused as to why anyone
thought hiring Minkoff was best for
Gulfport. While Minkoff belongs to the
City, County, and Law Section of the
Florida Bar and the State and Local
Government Section of the American
Bar Association, he pays to belong to
these sections. These sections do not
turn away lawyers because they don't
have experience; if a lawyer's check
clears he can join. Minkoff does seem
to have extensive experience with real
estate law, which only makes sense if
the city's planning to get involved in
the real estate business.
I have no issue with the man but I do
take issue with the stewards of your tax
dollars using them to hire someone with
a marked lack of municipal experience
on his resume. Why would Gulfport do
that when it makes as little sense as
using tax dollars to pay the head of the
Building Department to run the city?
I'm confused as to why King would risk
her reputation by making the motion
to hire her personal attorney as the
interim city attorney. Although Driscoll
assured council no conflict existed, why
would King open herself up to any
allegations, whispered or otherwise,
by changing the course of the meeting?
Council convened to discuss how to
hire a full-time attorney, not who to
hire, in the interim or otherwise. What


about getting Minkoff in the attorney's
position mattered so much that King
felt compelled to bring it to council
before they'd had a chance to consider
other attorneys? What was her rush?
I'm confused as to why no one even
acknowledged the protests of two long-
time Gulfportians, Vice-Mayor Bob
Worthington and Councilmember Judy
Ryerson. I understand that some folks
think Worthington has allied himself
with Gulfport Water Watch and, as
such, they will ignorantly dismiss
everything he says, but what about
Ryerson? She's one smart cookie, and
she knows Gulfport and finance and
human resource issues. She made
some logical points and expressed
some real concern about the path the
city was about to charge down (as did
Worthington.) Why would council
ignore her and Worthington?
Finally, I am not just confused but
astounded at Mayor Mike Yakes' vote
to hire Minkoff. I know Mayor Mike
has wanted a full-time attorney for
some time now, but at the Tuesday
night meeting he seemed open to
several options. I am dying to know
what happened between Tuesday night
and Friday afternoon that he voted to
charge ahead without considering any
other options. Why would Gulfport's
mayor hire an interim city attorney
who had no municipal experience when
no one else even had the opportunity to
apply for the job?
While the voices in my head won't
let these questions go, I don't believe
them and you shouldn't, either. It's
just crazy talk: crazy to wonder if those
three yes votes on council stemmed
from anything that would constitute
a Sunshine law violation, and crazier
still to think that perhaps the city
would leave the interim attorney in
that position indefinitely. I have every
faith in city council to replace the
interim city attorney with a permanent
attorney in a timely fashion. After
all, there's certainly no evidence that
Council would let interim employees
remain in power indefinitely.
All the same, if anyone has any
answers, the voices in my head would
dearly love to hear them. I would love
to be wrong about what I suspect. So,
I think, would quite a few Gulfport
voters. Is there anyone out there willing
to answer?
