Beach Residents Fight To Keep Post Office
By Cathy Salustri
"Citizen input was a big part of our
turnout today," Kevin Hing, chairman
of the St. Pete Beach Stewardship
Committee, told The Gabber.
The US Postal Service could make a
decision to close the branches as early
as the end of August, although it could
put off the decision until the end of
TE OUR PbST OFFIC "Given that window we thought it
t CORY AmmIes PlpA. lleg, was best to organize this as soon as
possible," Hing said.
For information about how to sign the
petition against closing the post office
or contact local congressmen, call the
St. Pete Beach city manager's office at
363-9232.

protest or to tell your story about the St.
Pete Beach post office, check out The

Coconut Inn Rezoning
Postponed For Rebuild
ST. PETE BEACH The City Commission
opted to postpone voting on an ordinance that
would change the zoning of a lot in Pass A Grille
until they could gather more information. The
Coconut Inn was already standing when the
land around it was designated for residential
use, and was grandfathered into St. Pete
Beach's Land Development Code. Now, owner
Joe Caruso wants to knock down the building,
which he says is dated and therefore not
competitive and replace it with an updated
hotel. To do this, the City needs to designate
the lot and the adjacent space that serves
as a parking lot as traditional hotel district
zoning.
See Rezoning, page 2

Tree Planting in Alleys
ST. PETE BEACH Pass A Grille residents
can now plant vegetation in the alleys that line
the perimeter of their properties but only
if they live south of 32nd Avenue, and if the
alley is at least 12 feet wide after planting. A
permitting process is required.


The Science of Herpetology

interesting
camps for
kids is the
Herpetology
Camp, or
the study of
reptiles and
amphibians.
The week-
long camp is Pleased to meet you! Seven

teaches the kids
about snakes, reptiles, frogs, snapping turtles,
gopher tortoises and alligators as well as
ecology and conservation. The students learn
to differentiate between venomous and non-
venomous species of snakes, using deceased
specimens as examples. They also study the
scat of local species and learn to determine

Neighbors testified against Caruso's
request at a recent hearing before the
Commission, expressing concern over
traffic and other potential issues as
well as what would happen to the land
if he were to ever sell it. Caruso tried
to reassure those in attendance that
he had the neighborhood's interests
at heart. ily love is to operate my
business the best I can, leave it to
my children and be a benefit to my
community," Caruso, clearly getting
choked up, told the Commission.
The Commission will discuss, and


potentially vote on, the ordinance
during a budget hearing Thursday,
September 3rd.

what their diet comprised of and
what kind of variety it is. But the
real excitement happens when the
children get to handle live, non-
venomous snakes and study them up
close. The camp has inspired some
young biologists -in- the- making
to think about a possible career in
biology, veterinary medicine or zoo
biologist. Any one of those would suit
eleven year old Samantha Coombs
"I love animals and I have some
snakes at home. I'm not scared of
them; here we get taught how to
handle them safely and of course
they're not poisonous. I think I'd like
to be a vet or a biologist/herpetologist
when I grow up!" she said.
George Heinrich thinks camps
like the one offered for kids at Boyd
Hill are a real necessity, to get kids
outside again and engaged in the
environment.
"The goal is to get these kids
excited and open their eyes. It a
healthy hobby and get them outside
away from the TV, the AC and the
computer. That sedentary lifestyle
contributes to childhood obesity,
which then translates to adult onset
of diseases like diabetes, heart and
circulatory problems. This type of
class is a real treat for these kids;
the schools are cutting back so much
funding that essential programs like
field trips and outdoor activities are
severely curtailed or eliminated all
together."
Heinrich hopes that his hands-
on camp will inspire and encourage
youngsters to get outside, get going
and get knowledgeable about their
environment and all the creatures
living in it.

No Problem With
Tuesday Market
Despite resident Deborah Blake's
complaints at the last several
council meetings, city manager Jim
O'Reilly told council that his office
had not received complaints about
the vendor violations during the
Tuesday Morning Market.
"As long as an owner or a tenant
says that they don't want it there, it
will remain that way until they say
'I've changed my mind'," Councilman
Sam Henderson explained.
The discussion, an agenda item
spurred on by Blake's repeated
complaints during the public
comment section of city council
meeting, centered around how to
interpret Resolution 2007-15 (which
outlined initial guidelines for the
Market) and whether or not issues
existed between property owners
abutting the Tuesday Morning
Market.
"The way that this is to be read in
its totality is with common sense,"
Interim City Attorney Tom Minkoff

said about the resolution. He went
on to explain that vendors could not
block sidewalks but could legally use
extension cords.
"The person who is having difficulty
with all this is going about it the
wrong way in understanding it,"
Janice Ryan.
City council and staff encouraged
any property owner impacted by the
Tuesday Morning Market who had a
vendor problem to call the city. After
hours, city staff said, any safety
issues should get directed to the
police department's non-emergency
number, 893-1030.

standards. All City employee email addresses will also be changed. For example,
the current email address for the webmaster, webmaster@ci.gulfport.fl.us, will
become webmaster@mygulfport.us. No need to worry, if you use the old address
it still will get to the intended recipient. The move will also allow more room for
free city meeting videos in the future.
If you haven't had the chance to visit Gulfport newly designed website, the City

the list of City events from all departments. If you click on an event you are
interested in, you can add it to your calendar. Also on the main page, you will
find a little yellow box below "Join Our Mailing List" to get up to date emails
from the webmaster to remind you of Gulfport events.

City Departments, you can view the Gulfport station GTV615 on line. It lists the
program guide, City YouTube Videos and a live web stream link. Webstream is
the same information distributed as if you were watching on cable TV.

can choose to extend that contract at
the end of the three years.
The COPS Office was launched in
1994, and provides law enforcement
training, information and personnel
to communities in need through its
grant program, which to date has
benefited American communities
to the tune of $12 billion. The city
also accepted $39,597.83 from the
Pinellas County Sheriffs office
for crime scene services, evidence
storage and other services that
ensure efficient investigations.

higher rates than what the city is
currently asking, the St. Pete Beach
City Commission voted to raise the

rental rates. For non-residents, the
Friday and Sunday rates will now be
$1,500 for four hours, $2,000 for six,

discount, and civic associations will
still be able to hold their monthly

Audition for "Gulfport
- The Musical"
If you have been reading the
Gabber of late, you most likely know
by now that the City of Gulfport
will be celebrating its Centennial in
January, 2010. Throughout the whole
year of 2010, the City of Gulfport will
be celebrating this historical event
with many happenings throughout
the City.
As a kickoff to these festivities,
the City of Gulfport and the
Gulfport Community Players jointly
will be staging a brand new Gil
Perlroth musical at the Catherine
A. Hickman Theater of Gulfport
entitled, "Gulfport The Musical".


The director for this play will be
Daniel Harris and he will need a
total of 26 people with some very
special talents for his cast. The
auditions will be held on Sept. 14th
and 15th at the Back Door Theater
at 7 p.m. The Back Door Theater
is located at 4919 17 Avenue S. in
Gulfport. There is a map showing
how to get to the theater on the
Players' website at: http://www.
gulfportcommunityplayers.org.
Daniel will need both males and
females, ranging in age from 6 to 80.
He will also need 6 or 7 children,
ages 6 to 12 for the play. All people
will have to be able to sing. Bring
music in your own key to the
auditions, a pianist will be provided

by the Players. Be prepared to sing
a "bright" number (no love ballads,
please!). Two people must be able
to waltz. There will be ensemble,
group, and solo singing in the play.
Rehearsals will begin a week after
the auditions end. The actual play
will run for 3 weeks from January
8th through January 24th, 2010.
Make sure that you have enough free
time for all the rehearsals required.
This play took over a year to write,
with the able assistance of Lynne
Brown as the historian to help
out. It is based on fact, although
some poetic license has been taken
to make it more enjoyable for the
audiences. This is a unique musical,
both entertaining and educational,
and fit for the whole family.
Become a part of history! Stop on
by and audition for this once-in-a
lifetime chance!

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

guess you could say my motto
Sis'been there, done that'," says
I Keith Sanders, from the law
office of Andre Keith Sanders, P.A.
He says that for two reasons. First,
he says his more than 17 years of ex-
perience as an attorney specializing
in handling "literally thousands" of
bankruptcies means that he has dealt
with virtually any kind of problem
or issue that might arise with them.
And, secondly, he had to file a Chap-
ter 13 bankruptcy himself a few years
ago. He says that experience makes
him very sensitive to the kinds of
things people face when making the
difficult decision to file.
"Most attorneys have never been
in a situation where they have been
worried about how to keep the lights
on, but I have been there myself so I afford because of a job loss or some assess your situation and see how

Gerald Goleman, St. Pete: "No,
not in this area; I think we're pretty
safe. But yes, I think the country is
more dangerous. There are many
contributing factors and I think one
of the big ones is how we are rais-
ing our children. We're not parent-
ing the way we should and children
aren't learning right and wrong; they
get away with a lot at a young age
and then think as they get older that
they're above the rules. They're the
ones who become violent, who break
the law. I think the short solution is
to have a more visible police pres-
ence. I think with more community
police action on the street, it becomes
a conscious deterrent to crime."



Caitlin Connor, St. Pete: "No, I
think it's pretty common with our
metro area and a sign of the times
and the economy. I think that it
starts at a young age; parents aren't
or can't afford to pay the bills so they
both work outside the home. This
in turn, creates latch-key kids, who
have no guidance and don't have that
positive influence from their parents
that would keep them out of trouble.
So they learn negative ways of coping
with that. They steal cars; they break
into people's houses. The more they
get away with it, it seems the violence
escalates I feel safe here in St. Pete;
I live right near St. Pete College and
they have 24 hour security. Those
guys drive around the neighborhood
all night long so we really don't have
a lot of issues at this end. But people
are getting desperate. They're losing
their jobs at an accelerated rate. Per-
sonally, since college, I've had four
companies close. That kind of stress-
ful atmosphere definitely creates an
open door for crime."


Susan Pressman, Gulfport: "I'm
from Boston and compared to there,
this is a very safe place. I feel very
safe in Gulfport; I live in the Art
District and often walk around late
at night. I've never even thought
about not being safe. I guess today's
economic climate has contributed to
a lot of loss like homes and jobs and
that could affect the crime rate. But
I don't think that these isolated inci-
dences of violence represent any kind
of global problem."

Ron Wolf, South Pasadena: "No,
not at all. I think this area is still one
of the safest places in the country.
I just think that with the times so
tough right now, people are getting
desperate. Those shootings in Tampa
just seemed to be random, not con-

Consider Eminent
Domain
Dear Editor: The City of Gulfport
should consider eminent domain for
the blighted shopping center at 49th
St. and Gulfport Blvd. Due to the
age of the building, the city would
have better success in attracting a
grocery store if the building is de-
molished and a new building is con-
structed on the site. A larger mod-
ern shopping center could be built
on that intersection if the property
that contains the former St Peters-
burg Times distribution building
and adjacent vacant Caldwell lot are
also included in an eminent domain
action.
The city should purchase these
properties and then sell the proper-
ties to a developer. Tax incentives
should be considered for the devel-
oper and grocery store that choose to
build on the site. As the community
has a public interest in the redevel-
opment of this area, the city should
act now while real estate prices are
low.
David Shiner


Reassurance Program
Dear Editor: Just a quick note
to let your readers know that the
Gulfport Senior Center Reassurance
Program is not solely for people who
are not able to care for themselves.
This program is free and available
to anyone in the city of Gulfport who
lives alone and needs to feel secure in
their home knowing that someone will
call to check on them every morning.
As I am one of the volunteers who
makes these calls, we find this
program to be the life line of the
Senior Center. So to anyone who
could benefit from a caring call in
the morning, please call 893-2237 or
893-1231 to add your name to the
list.
Lorraine DelBene


Thank You!
Dear Editor: I would like to thank
the lady who found my purse and
turned it in to the post office. God
bless you for it and we need more
people like you. Thanks again!
Olga K.

Along with important event

available in this handy calendar.
The calendar is $5 and after printing
costs, the remaining proceeds will

Audition for "Beau Jest"
The Gulfport Community Players
will be holding auditions for James
Sherman's romantic comedy, "Beau
Jest", on August 31 and September 1.
Auditions will be held at the Players'
Back Door Theater located at 4919
17 Avenue S. in Gulfport at 7 p.m.
The director for the play is Vic Carr
and he needs two females, ages 20 to
30; three males, ages 20 to 30; and
one male and one female, ages 50 to
70. These older, last two people need
to have Jewish accents.
The play centers around a nice
Jewish girl who is dating a gentile,
but he hasn't told her parents. She
invites her parents for dinner, so the
daughter needs a nice Jewish boy to
stand in for her real boyfriend. She
hires another guy to play the part.
The problem is that he's not Jewish
either, but he pretends to be Jewish.
Eventually the girl has to tell her
parents the truth and her father has
a mild heart attack upon hearing the
news. But, love is in the air and it all
works out in the end!
"Beau Jest" will run from November
5 through 15 at the Catherine


A. Hickman Theater of Gulfport.
Regardless of your experience level,
feel free to try out for a part in this
fast-moving comedy! Their auditions
are open to all interested people.

Attention Artists!
Several artists are needed to
participate in the new adventure of
Gulfport Galleria.
They are attempting to get together
a group of eclectic artisans to share
in a semi- co-op gallery in downtown
Gulfport. They will man the shop,
and you just bring your art to sell.
For as little as 200/month you can


be in on the ground floor of an much
needed Gallery in Gulfport. Gulfport
is growing in stature as an artist
community. More and more folks are
coming to the downtown area to see
art. Also the art walk is booming
so twice a month the customer base
at the Galleria is increased. Plus
Gulfport has several festivals and
events nearly every month besides
the art walk.
Remember all you do is bring
your art, they do the rest. They are
experienced shop owners and show
coordinators. Please contact Georgia
at 513-633-1001.

Market in the Park Calls
for Vendors
Plans are ramping up for
November's opening of Pinellas
County Market in the Park, and
vendors are welcome to get in on
the action now. Farm-fresh produce,
natural products and gardening
items are the mainstay of the
Market in the Park, and organizers
are looking for more vendors.
Specialties of particular interest are
plants, herbs, jams, jellies, ethnic
food, organic products, pasta, citrus,
seafood, candy, nuts, spices and
pastries. Specialty craft vendors
are encouraged to apply, especially
those offering horticultural-friendly
products.
This will be the Market in the Park's
third year. New this year, the market
is moving just around the corner to
Heritage Village, which is located off
125th Street between Walsingham
and Ulmerton Roads. It will be open
every Saturday starting Nov. 7,
through April 17, from 9 a.m. to 1
p.m. Vendors will enjoy the central,
mid-county location and an easy-to-
access place to sell their products.
Free admission, on-site restrooms
and plenty of room to roam make
this market attractive to customers.
Food and beverages will be sold for
shoppers and vendors. Other plans
are in the works for special events
and promotions.
For more information or to
obtain a vendor application, please
call Market Manager Richard
Kendler at (727) 733-4215 or email

Retired Stetson University President

H. Douglas Lee passes away


DeLand, Fla. Dr. H. Douglas Lee,
DeLand, who recently retired after 22
years as president of Stetson Univer-
sity, died early Tuesday morning, Aug.
25, at Florida Hospital-DeLand of com-
plications from surgery. He was 66.
A native of Danville, Va., Dr. Lee
served as president of Stetson from
June 1987 to May 31, 2009. He became
chancellor a position equivalent to
president emeritus upon his retire-
ment. Before serving as president of
Stetson, he served as the university's
executive vice president from 1983 to
1987, as vice president for Planning
and Development from 1980 to 1983,
and as vice president for Development
from 1978 to 1980.
His visionary leadership strength-
ened academic quality and trans-
formed Stetson into a more diverse and
socially responsible institution. He led
Stetson through her separation from
the Southern Baptist Convention in
the 1990s, moving Stetson forward into
the 21st century as an internationally
respected university.
"This is a huge loss to Stetson and
the larger community, and our hearts
go out to Margaret and the rest of his
family," said Nestor de Armas, chair
of the Stetson Board of Trustees and a
university alumnus. "Doug was a man
of integrity who dedicated the last 30
years of his life to Stetson. Under his
leadership, we distinguished ourselves
by rolling up our sleeves and doing the
work of faith without letting theology
get in the way.
"His legacy is our deep commitment
to social justice and to inclusivity," de
Armas said. "We are sad, but we are
comforted by knowing we were able to
share in his life and work, and by see-
ing his legacy thriving in our Stetson
family."
"I will miss Doug's wisdom and his
enlightened world view, his passion for
servant leadership and his fierce com-
mitment to social justice," said Stetson
President Wendy B. Libby. "Stetson
University has been greatly blessed
by having this giant at her helm for so
many years. Together, with Margaret
at his side, Doug transformed every
person and institution he touched. I
am humbled to follow in his path."
Dr. Lee's presidency focused on a com-

Gabber August 27 September 2, 2009


mitment to academic excellence, the
integration of values into the teaching-
learning process and active forms of
social responsibility. Under his excep-
tional leadership, Stetson remained
true to her 125-year heritage.
During his 22 years at the helm,
Stetson hired more faculty and low-
ered the student-faculty ratio to 11 to
1, significantly increased the univer-
sity's overall endowment, completed
numerous major capital projects, add-
ed satellite centers in Tampa Bay and
Celebration, and boosted enrollment.
The university underwent a cultural
renewal built on an institution-wide
commitment to seven core values: re-
ligious and spiritual life, ethical deci-
sion-making, diversity, gender equity,
environmental responsibility, commu-
nity engagement, and health and well-
ness.
In December 2008, the university
named historic Elizabeth Hall cha-
pel the Lee Chapel in his honor. Dur-
ing Homecoming 2009, Doug and his
wife, Margaret Easley Lee, received
Stetson's Distinguished Service Award
in recognition of their many contribu-
tions to the university. They also were
recipients of the first George and Mary
Hood Award, which honors those who
personify the university's core values.
Dr. Lee was well-known and respect-
ed as a leader in higher education and,
with his wife, as an active member of
First Baptist Church of DeLand and as
a supporter of the arts and charitable
causes in DeLand, Volusia County,
Florida, the Southeast and beyond.
Among their favorite causes were the
Cultural Arts Center of DeLand, the
Spring Hill community, the National
Museum of Women in the Arts and the
Florida Museum for Women Artists.
Recognized for his passionate commit-
ment to the community and social jus-
tice, Dr. Lee was presented the NAACP
West Volusia Branch Humanitarian of
the Year Award and the B'nai B'rith
Citizen of the Year Award, both in
1998. Under his leadership in environ-
mental responsibility, Stetson earned
the Year 2000 Sustainable Florida
Award for Initiative presented by the
Governor's Council for Sustainable
Florida. In 2008, Stetson University
and Dr. Lee, specifically, were awarded


the first Historic Preservationist of the
Year Award by the West Volusia His-
torical Society. He also was a leader
in the evolution of the Volusia County
ECHO Initiative.
Along with the many awards each
has received as individuals, the Lees
together were named Volusia County
Citizens of the Year in 2006 and re-
ceived the 2008 Spring Hill Neighbor-
hood Association Exceptional Commu-
nity Partner Award. In 2008, the Lees
were recipients of the Volusia County
Cultural Alliance (VCCA) Second An-
nual Tippen Davidson Award, present-
ed to those who have made significant
contributions to the arts.
Dr. Lee earned a Bachelor of Arts de-
gree in English from the University of
Richmond, along with Bachelor of Di-
vinity and Master of Theology degrees
from Southeastern Seminary, Wake
Forest, N.C. He earned a doctorate in
Religion from the University of Iowa,
Iowa City.
In addition to Margaret, his wife of
43 years, Dr. Lee is survived by a son,
Gregory Lee and wife Lara; a daugh-
ter, Elizabeth Lee Williamson and
husband Heath; grandsons, Parker
Lee, Grayson Lee and Ayers William-
son; granddaughters, Maggie William-
son and Piper Williamson; father, Dr.
Howard Lee, Danville, Va.; brother,
David Lee and wife Ethel, Richmond,
Va.; brother-in-law, Charles Easley III
and wife Claudia, Danville, Va.; and
sister-in-law, Sarah Drummond, Rich-
mond, Va.
Details regarding a memorial servic-
es will be forthcoming.







St. Pete Beach Remembers Beloved Fire Chief
By Kate Bradshaw


Those who were closest to him say
there are enough stories about former
St. Pete Beach Fire Chief Charles
"Bucky" Hartman most funny, some
heart-wrenching to span weeks in
their telling.
Like the time when he was off duty
and heard that a plane had crashed
near Crabby Bill's (he always had his
radio on him). Upon hearing the news,
he dropped everything, says good friend
and fellow firefighter Dan Daugherty,
and stayed at the crash site until 3 a.m.
"On the guy's day off, you know?"
Daugherty says.
Then there were all of those years dur-
ing which he served as Santa Claus a
tenure that spanned multiple genera-
tions.

Or that time that Hartman, who was
a die-hard Dolphins fan, bet Fred Gol-
liner, Hartman's successor, five bucks
that the Dolphins would beat the Bucks.
Hartman won, but never collected.
Hartman, who passed August 12 at the
age of 84, was the type of guy for whom
there were no strangers; the type of guy
who would do anything for those he
loved; the type of guy who downplayed
his own achievements, however sub-
stantial.
His attitude about his military years,
during which he served in World War
II, were just one example of Hartman's
humility.
"He was highly decorated and never
talked about his service record," says
Billy Hartman, his son. "He would say,
'hey, I went where they told me to go."'
The honors he earned include three
Bronze Stars, Combat and Expert In-
fantryman badges, the Good Conduct
Metal and a Purple Heart, which he
was awarded after being wounded at
the Battle of the Bulge. He fought in the
Battle of Normandy and served in the
Rhineland Campaign.
Born in West Virginia, he came to St.
Pete Beach for vacation after his mili-
tary service.
"I got sand in my shoes...Never went
back,'" he once told the St. Petersburg
Times.
He joined the fire department first as
a volunteer, then as a full-timer and
served for 35 years, 14 of them as chief.
Throughout his service, Daugherty says,
he would never tell anyone to do any-
thing he himself wasn't willing to carry
out. This meant leading men half his

age onto the rooftop of a flaming build-
ing if he had to.
Hartman came to be known as the An-
gel of St. Pete Beach, his daughter-in-
law Jodie Hartman says, "because he
did everything for everybody."
He could rip you a new one, Billy Hart-
man says, but was fiercely protective if
someone were to cross a loved one.
"He was like a mother bear with her
cubs," he says.
The community responded in kind.
When the city was trying to make him
retire against his will at age 67, the citi-
zens of St. Pete Beach responded with
a huge campaign, complete with "Save
the Bucky" t-shirts and bumper stick-
ers. He retired, willingly, four years
later, in 1995. Jodie Hartman says he
had three retirement parties.
St. Pete Beach's Lido Beach Park was
shortly after dedicated in his honor.
His memorial service, which took place
at the St. Pete Beach Recreation Center
and the Bay Pines Veterans' Cemetery,
was another example of Hartman's
fierce support. Fire departments from
as far away as Lutz and Palm Harbor
were represented in a ceremony fitting
for someone so devoted to his commu-
nity.
"It was phenomenal," says Billy Hart-
man, adding that he and his family are
extremely appreciative of the fire and
police departments' efforts.
The ceremony may be long over, but
Hartman's seemingly inexhaustible list
of family and friends, all possessing an
abundance of vivid stories about Hart-
man and his role in his community, will
ensure his legacy will live on, and boldly
so.

Strike a Fiscal
Balance With Your
Grown Children
It is difficult for parents to bal-
ance giving financial help to their
adult children with allowing them
independence, even if independence
means hardship. I do not have all
the answers. I struggle because I'm
a mother and my mom's heart wants
to protect my children from every
possible bump on the Road of Life.
My head, on the other hand, says
that is absurd. Giving my boys all I
can to make their lives perfect would
deprive them of the joy of making
it on their own, that feeling of ac-
complishment that comes when we
figure out how to get through life's
difficult situations.
I know of a family that has a lot of
money. In their lifetimes, they could
not possibly spend it all. Conse-
quently, out of love and generosity,
the parents have provided every-
thing for their children, who are now
adults with kids of their own.
These parents, now grandparents,
have offered unbelievable support
for their brood. They've purchased
all of the homes and cars. They
pay all the expenses and bills every
month. They give their grown chil-
dren more than enough money to
live -- and live well.

These adult children never have had
jobs. They do nothing. They are tak-
ers because everything always has
been taken care of for them. These
parents have deprived their children
of the gift of independence. They've
turned them into greedy monsters
for whom more never will be enough.
So where is the balance? Is it wrong
for families to help one another, espe-
cially during these difficult economic
times? Of course not. But we need to
set sensible boundaries.
Do not go into debt to help. Whether
it's for a college education, co-signing
a child's legal obligation or helping
with the purchase of a home, if you
have to go into debt to come up with
the funds, watch out. That's a red flag
that you're setting up yourself and
your offspring for a future financial
disaster. How can you give money to
others that is not yours to give? Go-
ing into debt to help another is not a
loving thing to do.


Do not do too much to help. This is
the most difficult for me to pen be-
cause I am the queen of doing too
much. My motive is one of generosity
and love. But that help becomes in-
appropriate when it stifles financial
maturity or precludes the need for
my sons to become self-reliant. How
much is too much? I cannot make
that determination for you. Your re-
sources should be your first consid-
eration, and then you must consider
each situation carefully.
There's a lesson to be learned from
the way steel is made strong. It must
be "stressed" sufficiently to become
tempered. The same goes for the hu-
man spirit. The stresses of life make
us stronger and prepare us for the
future. Shielding our adult children
from financial stress is not always the
most loving thing to do. In the end, it
might do more harm than good.

So lethtln oH my mind
* By Bill Northrop B_Northrop@theGabber.com

Behind the Wheel


While some protest the wars
in Iraq and Afghanistan,
and others worry about
killers in the environment, the real
slaughter takes place on our high-
ways. I've had trouble finding com-
parative data state-by-state, but the
death toll nationally in 2006 ( latest
data according to the World Almanac)
was 42,642. An additional 2,575,000
were injured.
Deaths and rate of death per 100
million miles driven were down and
have been declining for years. So,
we're proud of the 11 per cent drop
since 1996. We're proud that seat
belts and air bags and backup beep-
ers and lights, and roll-over bars, and
better side panels and collapsible
bumpers and so on were successful
safety features.
However, the fact remains that ve-
hicles are the great killers, wiping
out more people than all our wars
put together. Think of the impact,
think of the violence, the trauma, the
mental scars, the permanently crip-
pled. Talk about the cost on national
health care. Two and one-half million
injured, 42,000 dead.
Yet, automobiles are a part of our
lives. We accept the consequences
of mobility unlike anything else we
do. Not having a vehicle is to be de-
prived, to be limited and that is true.
So, training is limited, administered
at home or in schools as a casual
walk-through. We worry about air-


line travel, yet the rate of fatalities
in commercial aviation is a fraction
of the rate of car accidents and even
general aviation is better.
Aviation training is rigorous. It
takes hours of training and testing
at an average cost of $3,000 or more
just to get a private pilot's license.
Additional training is required to
fly without visual reference to the
ground and re-testing is required ev-
ery two years. Physicals are manda-
tory. Hmm. Could we be on to some-
thing here?
Why not tighten driver training,
make it tougher, more demanding?
Let's use enclosed simulators so we
can test for instances such as run-
ning off the road and getting back on
the road, sudden stops, the effect of
rain on braking and turning, pass-
ing, swerving, speeding, night time
and so forth.
Would the cost be too high, could
people afford it? Think of it this way.
It costs $6,000 or $7,000 a year just to
own a car (amortization of the price of
the car, repair, insurance and gaso-
line). A one-time cost on the front end
wouldn't be such a burden. The costs
could be paid back in a reduction of
accidents. And, just maybe, having to
fork over a few thousand dollars and
be tested, really tested, might make
us a bit more serious about jumping
behind the wheel of a car and taking
off.

100 Week Countdown to 100 Years!
In just 59 weeks, Gulfport will
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
Historical Museum. See if you can iden-
ptify the people, places, and above all the
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.

The house shown last week, 5320 Dellett,
was built in 1926 by Alvah Roebuck for
CityI of James and Daisy Morrison, who lived
there for the next quarter-century. Just
across Dellett, at 5319, is a house that
was originally the mirror image of this one
when it went up later in 1926 or 1927.



This man was one of Gulfport's most popular employees. What was his
name and what was his job? Answer next week.

Uii~ SOCIALSECU11.11r-V^JI


By Tom Margenau
One Day Can Make a
Difference for Social
Security Payments
Q: I will turn 62 on Dec. 2. A Social
Security representative told me that
my first Social Security check would
be paid in January. So, I under-
stand Social Security holds back one
month's pay. But why did my friend
have to return her mother's April So-
cial Security check when she died on
April 30?
A: Remember that old song, "What a
Difference a Day Makes?" Well, you'll
be humming that tune by the time
you finish reading this column.
There are three government rules
at work here. And they demonstrate
that just one day can make a huge
difference when it comes to Social Se-
curity payments.
The first rule says you must be at
least age 62 for an entire month in
order to be eligible for Social Security
benefits.
The second rule says that Social
Security benefits are always paid in
arrears. In other words, you get the
benefit for July in August, August's
benefit in September, etc.


Keep Your Head Above
Water All Year Round...
Advertise in

Gabber
since 1968
321-6965


The third rule says you must be alive
for an entire month to be eligible for
that month's Social Security check.
In the case of your friend's mother,
she died on April 30. In other words,
she wasn't alive the entire month of
April -- almost an entire month, but
not quite. And as we all know, close
only counts in horseshoes, certainly
not in legal matters. So, the April
Social Security check (the one that
came in May) had to be returned.
In your case, you turn 62 on Dec. 2.
So, the rules would normally say the
first month you are 62 for an entire
month is January, and the first So-
cial Security payment would be the
January check that is sent in Febru-
ary.
So, why did the Social Security rep-
resentative tell you you'd get your
first check in January? It's because
you are helped by a strange little
twist in the law. That legal twist says
a person actually attains his or her
birthday on the last minute of the
day preceding the actual birth date.
(That's not a Social Security law. It's
some kind of old established common
law.)


In other words, even though your
birthday is Dec. 2, the law assumes
you will attain your 62nd birthday
on Dec. 1. That means you are 62 for
the entire month of December, which
is why you will get a Social Security
payment for December, payable in
January.
Had you been born just one day
later, on Dec. 3, then you would not
have been legally age 62 for the en-
tire month of December. And your
first Social Security check would
have been the January check, pay-
able in February.
And had your friend's mother lived
one more day, until May 1, then her
family would have received her April
Social Security check, which would
have been payable in May.
"What a difference a day makes,
Twenty-four little hours.
Brought the sun and the flowers
Where there used to be rain."
And it also brings you an extra So-
cial Security check or takes one away,
depending on the day you were born
or the day you die!

Holy Name Church
Oktoberfest 2009
Time is fleeting, fall is fast
approaching and the season of
festivals and fun is almost upon us.
Holy Names' "Oktoberfest 2009" fall
festival is scheduled for October 29
thru November 1, so come celebrate
Halloween in a safe, entertaining
and fun environment. This year
we have invited local restaurants,
food vendors and businesses to
participate in our festival. We hope
this will be an exciting adventure
for both parties. The Arts and Crafts
Fair will be held outside this year
with greater exposure to our many
visitors. If you are a food vendor or
crafter interested in participating
in our festival send your contact
information to noleloverl@aol.com
or fax to 727-343-6420. In the subject
line enter "Oktoberfest 2009" and
a reservation form with costs and
details of the festival will be e-mailed
or direct mailed to you and will be
available at the rectory office at Most
Holy Name. This is a fun weekend
including rides, games, food and
entertainment. The "Oktoberfest"
fall festival has been an annual event
in Gulfport for over 30 years. Most
Holy Name of Jesus church is located
on the corner of 58th Street and 15th
Avenue South in Gulfport. Come join
in the fun.

Meals on Wheels
Needs Drivers
Volunteers are needed to deliver hot,
nutritious meals to the homebound
throughout Pinellas County.
Volunteering for the Neighborly
Meals on Wheels program is a hands-
on, front line experience. If you have
11/ hours midday to help in your
own neighborhood, you could help
improve someone's life and make a
real difference in this critical area
of need. Meals are picked up at a
site near you and delivered to the
homebound in your area (maps and
directions are provided).
Many Pinellas County seniors are
living alone, too poor to buy food,
or too frail to shop and cook for
themselves. And the need is growing
every day. Do someone else a favor
and you will be doing yourself one!
Neighborly needs compassionate,
caring volunteers to share their time

Commission Considers Keg

Ban on Treasure Island Beach

By Kate Bradshaw

A discarded water bottle lies near
the volleyball net on an unusually
slow Sunday evening at Caddy's in
Sunset Beach. Bar staff attributed
this to rain, but regardless, the
nearly empty beach was a far cry
from what has become the norm.
The beach in front of the open-
air restaurant has recently been
attracting enormous crowds of
revelers, some of whom would
drag kegs out to the beach or tip
back bottles of hard liquor in plain
view.
Litter left on the beach was one
of many complaints Sunset Beach
residents have voiced in recent
months. Others include lewdness
and drunk driving, and have in
recent months spurred members
of the community to seek a beach-
wide ban on alcohol. Treasure
Island Commissioner Alan Bildz
had wanted to temporarily ban
alcohol until a solution was found,
the St. Petersburg Times recently
reported, but the City Commission ultimately deemed such a ban to be against
the will of the voters, who elected to legalize booze on T.I. beaches in 1986.
"The Commission feels that the citizens have spoken already," T.I. City
Manager Ray Silverboard told the Gabber. To get an alcohol ban on the ballot,
he said, a group of citizens would have to petition to do so, upon which the
decision would be up to the voters. In the meantime, the Commission is
considering banning kegs on the beach.


Annual SPCA Pet
Walk Needs Vendors
Vendors interested in supporting
homeless animals and exhibiting
their products/services to more than
2,000 pet lovers at the 19th Annual
SPCA Pet Walk should apply now.
The registration fee is $225.
This crowd-drawing event is sure to
bring attention and new customers to
local businesses. Festivities begin at
8:30 a.m. and end at 1 p.m.
Stage events will be hosted by official
media sponsors: The St. Petersburg
Times; WQYK 99.5FM, Q105, La
Maxima 92.5FM, Wild 98.7FM;
820AM NewsTalk radio; and, Tampa
Bay on Demand. Activities include:
The St. Petersburg Times Adoptable
Pet Parade, IAMs Pet Costume
Contest, Frontline/Heartgard Pet
Boutique tent, PetSmart Amateur
Agility course and more. Tech Data
Corporation is the presenting sponsor
again this year.
This event is not made solely for
animal-related businesses; diverse
companies will see enhanced interest
in their booths since pet lovers come
in all shapes, sizes, and consumer
needs. Pet owners will be glad to know
that non-pet related companies are
joining the cause to save animals.
For more information and to register
contact Janet at 727-586-3591, ext.
168. Visit www.PetWalk.org for
event details.

cozy nook in Gulfport I call

Scallop Search Sets New Record


By Kate Bradshaw

Last weekend marked
Tampa Bay Watch's 16th
Annual Great Scallop
Search, an event that entails
surveying the turtle grass
beds of lower Tampa Bay
for signs of life. Almost 200
people a sellout crowd
- showed up. Armed with
snorkels, dive flags and light
surveying equipment they set
out in 42 boats to tally up the
scallops they saw over select
swaths of sea floor.
Embedded in the gentle
seagrass beds that skirt
Tampa Bay's calm shores,
bay scallops are the water's
coal mine canaries. When
their numbers go south,
says Tampa Bay Watch
Environmental Scientist
Chris Sutton, it's an indicator
that something is very wrong
in the water.
"If the water's poor, they're
going to be the first to die,"
Sutton says.
Once a food source for
Floridians, a preferred one at
that, bay scallops are now a
protected species. Harvesting
the creatures, whose shell
diameters max out at three
inches, is illegal south of
the Suwanee, a rule that is


"diligently enforced." "You actually see

"We know scallops were ..

TBW President Peter
Clark.
The search doesn't give
a complete count but
rather a representative

fourth year in a row that
they've seen an increase.
Lately, Clark says, bay
scallops have been spotted
as far north as the Gandy
Bridge.
TBW Education Specialist
Andy Lykens says that policy
changes like putting a lid
on rampant dredging in the
area may be helping bay
scallop populations maintain.
Spawning cages, Clark says,
may also be helping.
Yet the watch has seen
fluctuations throughout the
years that seem to tie in with
specific events, like el nino
and major storms. Fertilizer
runoff, which causes harmful
algal blooms, is a chronic
culprit. The population had
seemed to be growing until
the mid-nineties, Clark says,
until a phosphate spill at a


plant
on the Alafia
river washed into the bay and
wiped them out. In 2005, they
found only one scallop.
Volunteers Tom Martin
and Tracy Nikel, have been
participating for seven years,
and while some years they
came across none, they have
seen their share of scallops
for the past three years.
"It's fun," Nikel said. "We get
to see how the health of the
bay is."
Snorkeling in the hip-deep
water, the two got spooked by
a fish that darted out of the
shadows. Moments later, a
(harmless) bonnethead shark
swam by.
They enjoy the search, Martin
joked, for "the sheer terror" of
it.
