Council with "Team Gulfport" shirts as a way of acknowledging the city's
team spirit and assistance with activities.


City Budget Increase
For Legal Fees
GULFPORT- City council increased the
legal budget by just over $62,000. These
increases include over $21,000 to settle
the Pasadena Properties lawsuit as well
as $6500 owed to former city attorney Tim
Driscoll. The increase also includes $7500
for any contingencies.
Finally, this amount includes $27,000
fee for interim city attorney Tom Minkoff.
Vice-Mayor Bob Worthington cast the only
dissenting vote.

Council Mix-up Leads to
Mistaken Pension Board
Resignation
GULFPORT- Christine Brown will
continue to serve as the resident member of
the Firefighters' Pension Board. A mix-up
at the last meeting in August led council to
believe she had chosen to no longer serve
on the board when in fact another member
of the Pension Board opted to no longer
serve. Brown expressed a desire to continue
to serve and Council voted unanimously
for her to do so.

GULFPORT- Residents

other areas of the city will
soon see repairs to their

will also pave and level

St. Pete Beach Will Keep

Corey Avenue Post Office
By Cathy Salustri
While you can't fight city hall it turns out that
sometimes you can fight the post office--and win.
Wednesday afternoon the United States Postal
Service (USPS) announced it would leave the Corey
Avenue post office open. When the USPS released
a list last month that included both beach post of-
fices on its list of possible closures, citizens as well
as elected officials responded by staging a rally in
front of the Corey Avenue post office. Citizens also
circulated a petition and mailed postcards to the
Postmaster and state representatives.
While the post office intends to leave the Corey
Avenue branch open, it announced it would close
the Pass-A-Grille branch. City Manager Mike Bon-
field said that Postmaster Russ Racine assured
the city he remained "committed to help the city
locate a contract vendor" to run the Pass-A-Grille
branch, according to an e-mail from the city man-
ager. That means that, ideally, the post office will
remain open but a third party will operate it rather
than the post office.
At press time the USPS had not returned any
calls to The Gabber, but city commissioners specu-
lated that the post office made its decision

Post Office,
from front page
based at least in part on the public
outcry.
"I can only hope it was the outpour-
ing of support from the community,"
Commissioner Bev Garnett said "Ev-
erybody united together."
Bonfield said that in addition to
the community outcry, local input
from Postmaster Racine also helped
the city's cause. The city manager
indicated he suspected Racine cam-
paigned on behalf of the Corey Av-
enue branch.
"The original list (of potential post
office closures) came out of Wash-
ington without any input from the
locals. He (Racine) said the Corey
Avenue post office was pretty close to
breaking even and didn't understand
really why that was on the list," Bon-
field told The Gabber.
To residents, city staff, and elect-
ed officials, though, the reason the
United States Postal Service opted
to leave the Corey Avenue post office
open didn't matter as much as the
decision to leave it open.
"What a joy to get good news for
once for good ol' St. Pete Beach," resi-
dent Ron Waters said.
"I'm thrilled with the decision,"
Halpern said. "It's good to win one
once in a while."

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

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!

Property Owners
Can Challenge Their
TRIM Notices Online
PINELLAS COUNTY, FL: For
the first time in Pinellas County,
property owners who disagree with
their property value assessments
can file petitions to go before the
Value Adjustment Board (VAB)
online via the Clerk's website, www.
mypinellasclerk.org, beginning on
Monday, August 31, according to
Ken Burke, Clerk of the Circuit
Court.
Using the new Axia web software,
the Clerk's office has added the
online petitioning feature as well
as enabling petitioners to submit
their supporting documents online,
according to Burke.
Other methods of petitioning to go
before the VAB are still available.
The forms can be accessed online,
then mailed or filed in person at the
Clerk's Board Records department
located on the fifth floor of the
Clearwater Courthouse, 315 Court
St., Clearwater or may be dropped
off at one of these Clerk's branch
offices: the St. Petersburg Branch
at 545 First Ave. N., St. Petersburg;
the Tyrone Branch at 1800 66th
St. N., St. Petersburg or the North
County Branch at 29582 U.S. 19,
Clearwater.
The Property Appraiser's office
mailed the Truth In Millage (TRIM)
notices on Monday, August 24,
2009. Property owners have until
Friday, September 18, 2009 to file a
petition challenging their property
tax notice.

The TRIM notice includes
homeowner's property taxes,
property assessments and proposed
millage rates set by the various
taxing entities. The market value
shown on the 2009 TRIM Notice
is based on market condition and
ownership status of the property as of
January 1, 2009, and is determined
by analyzing sales that took place in
2008, according to the office of Pam
Dubov, Property Appraiser.
Property owners who disagree with
their assessments can meet with
the property appraiser's office to
discuss their notices. If they are still


dissatisfied, they may file a formal
challenge with the VAB through the
Clerk's office.
The Value Adjustment Board serves
as the decision-making authority
between the property owners and
the property appraiser when there
is a disagreement over exemptions,
valuations and classifications. Once
a petition is filed, a quasi-judicial
hearing is scheduled with a special
magistrate.
For more information, visit the
Value Adjustment Board page at
www.mypinellasclerk.org or call
Board Records at 727-464-3458.

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

Last Blast of Summer Dance


John and Mary Milford (center) are surrounded by food and friends at the Gulfport Casino's
Summer Blast Dance last Friday night. The group of close friends danced the night away
to the band A Pair to Remember.
By Leigh Clifton

The Gulfport Casino was dressed up like a regal lady last Friday night as
the Chamber of Commerce sponsored the Last Blast of Summer Dance. The
event was a perfect ending to a summer season of live music that brought
people from Tampa, Spring Hill, Bradenton, St. Pete and everywhere else in
between to Gulfport, some for the first time.
Chamber Board member Mike Baggs was pleased with the large turn -out
and credits Chamber President Lori Rosso, Casino staff and Casino Event
Supervisor Gail Kelley with the great coordination and cooperation with the
City and Chamber.
"Gail and her staff have done a great job of getting this set up, with the tables
and helping book the band, getting the bar staff. In this tough economy, where
else can you go hear a really good band in a beautiful ballroom overlooking
the sunset on the water for five dollars? "
The Casino allowed patrons to bring their own food and a cash bar run by
Casino staff served beer, wine spirits and soft drinks.
John and Mary Milford, of Gulfport, called five friends who showed up with
various culinary delights.
"I think this is a great thing to do," Mary said. "That's why I called all my
friends; we all love to dance. I've seen people from all over tonight. We found
out about it in the Gabber, of course.
Mike Baggs alluded to greater things to come for the City and said some
fun events may be in the offering in the future, including a possible Sunset
on the Point, a la Mallory Square in Key West. Both Rosso and Baggs said
that those plans are in the thinking stage and haven't been discussed yet.
But Chamber President Lori Rosso's excellent coordination of the Summer
Concert Series on the Point with the City and the Merchant's Association,
helped draw impressive crowds and first-rate bands. The events were so
successful that the Merchant's Association has agreed to sponsor a Fall
Concert Series on the Point, starting the second Friday of October that will
run through December.
September in Gulfport is already booked, with Gecko Fest this weekend
and then the Gulfport Blues Fest on the Tangerine Greenway on September
26th and 27th, sponsored by So49.org.

Premier Choice: Flood Insurance That Pays You!


FEMA is increasing rates
8% October 1.
Jeff DeNight is changing the way
people feel about their insurance
company.
Jeff co-owns two insurance agencies,
Bentley.DeNight Insurance Services,
a full service, independent, Trusted
Choice agency that offers business,
auto, home, commercial, life, boat,
motorcycle, RV and umbrella policies.
He also owns Premier Choice Rebate
Flood Insurance, a flood insurance
agency that sells nothing but flood
insurance.
"We're the only flood insurance
agency that offers cash rebates back
to all our customers," Jeff explains.
So if you buy your flood insurance
through Premier Choice, you'll get at
least seven percent of your annual
premium (before fees and taxes) back
in the form of a rebate check.
"We give the money back to our
customers either at inception- if
they're new policy holders-- and then
again every subsequent year they
renew... forever," Jeff says.
Here's how the rebate works:
You get seven percent of your policy
back the first year. Every subsequent
year for the next five years you
receive one percent more back until
you get to the sixth year. In the
sixth year and every year following,
customers will get 12 percent back
as a rebate.
This rebate can add up to thousands
of dollars for the life of your home or
business policy. The company sends
you a check rather than taking the
money off the premium so you can
spend it on whatever you choose.
Do Premier Choice Flood Insurance
policies cost more than other flood


Jetff eNignt, Go-owner or uentley-ue-
night insurance shares commissions with

insurance policies?
Nope, Jeff says. FEMA is the only
flood insurance provider, so the cost
is the same no matter what flood
insurance company you use. The
policies written by his agency are
supported by the federal government
through FEMA.
FEMA pays a commission to the
agencies that write their policies.
Jeff and his agency are sharing that
commission with their customers.
Jeff says, things are tough for
everyone, and if his company has a
little to share with the community,
it's happy to do so.
"With the economy the way it is,
we thought it would be nice to give
something back, especially since
insurance has such a negative
connotation," Jeff says.
Maybe not anymore.

Gulfport Beach August 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. Date Enterococcus Fecal Coliform
The City of Gulfport currently tests for both types of bac-
teria. Test results will help classify Gulfport Harbor as August 4 6 7
"good", "moderate", or "poor". Enterococcus of less than 35 August 11 10 7
parts per 100 milliliter and fecal coliform of less than 199 August 18 2 15
per 100 milliliter of saltwater indicate good water qual-
ity. For more information, contact the City of Gulfport at August 25 6 7
893-1000.

something' on my mind
By Bill Northrop B_Northrop@theGabber.com

Tough Times or Good Times?


The good old days are behind us,
sliding over the horizon like a
sunset with nary a flash of em-
erald green. Those were the good old
days of rising property values, low
unemployment, expanded govern-
ment services, and a feeling of end-
less prosperity. All just a couple of
years ago. Must be like what it was
in the property bust of the mid 1920s
except that the dream bubble really
burst then. We still have the dream,
but it's going to be a lot harder to
maintain.
For the first time since the 1940s,
more people have moved out than in.
Unemployment is above 10 per cent.
Property has deflated and foreclo-
sures still dominate the market. Lo-
cal and state government, helped a
bit and temporarily by bail-outs from


the federal government, just might
have to do with less, much less. Re-
ally bad news. Or is it? Does this eco-
nomic storm really have a rainbow?
If you are an environmentalist it
might. Those pesky developers have
quit scraping up the landscape, fewer
vehicles pollute the air, fewer people
(or at least people for a shorter pe-
riod of time) clog the roads, jam the
beaches, throw trash, use up the wa-
ter and generally disturb the peace.
Less power is used and hence less
pollution. Government has less to
spend, not generally a bad thing. In
other words, they'll have to do with
less or do the same with less expense,
or do more with less whatever can
be achieved.
I read the other day that Gibbs
school, which is a failing school, is


If you are a diabetic experiencing painful symptoms of diabetic
neuropathy, you may qualify for a clinical research study for an
investigational medication. Qualified participants will receive
study-related care and study medication at no cost and may also receive
compensation up to $400 for their time and travel.

cracking down on student misbehav-
ior. It includes dress code, language
control, and absenteeism. Apparent-
ly, no one proposed a new "let's talk,
let's persuade, let's study, let's psy-
choanalyze" the problem. No money,
so let's get to it. Gitter done, as the
Cable Guy says.
Same way with work. No more
three day, pick up beer money, work
weeks. Just hanging out is probably
not so popular now and the flood of
drifters has probably slowed. Tough
on the Mexican and South American
workers who took on the dirty tasks
and the steady work weeks. Some-
how, I think they'll prevail. Don't
know about the so-called homeless,
but I suspect that public tolerance
levels are dropping.
As for crime, I'm never certain
whether it increases when things
are good (Sutton robbed banks be-
cause that's where the money was),
or increases when times are bad.
What I do know is that people are
less tolerant when times are bad.
Criminals have less wiggle room.
That's not all bad.
No one enjoys bad times, particu-
larly their own. But everything has a
flip side. No hurricanes have meant
less property damage and chaos, but
it has also meant less rain and wa-
ter is crucial. So, is this a breather
for Florida, a time to consider the
over-development of the past, clean-
up the garbage, and to plan better
for the future?
Might be as long as you can hold on
until the recovery comes.

Gulfport Centennial Countdown Continues!




100 Week Countdown to 100 Years!
In just 58 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-
tify 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
I following week.
LAST WEEK'S ANSWER:
Tim McCarthy (1915-1998), pictured last
week in 1962, was Gulfport's Public Works
Director. His department, responsible for
streets, sanitation, general maintenance,
and water & sewer had a budget of $170,
637 that year. A generous supporter of
Gulfport fishermen originally had their net spreads right on the town's the Historical Society, he gave many of
waterfront. Where were they moved to, and when and why? Answer next the tools, military, and sports items on
week. ~display at the Museum.

Boca Ciega High Students Get New Digs


Gulfport Mayor Mike Yakes, left, Boca Ciega High School Principal Paula Nelson and
Gulfport's acting city manager Jim O'Reilly are all smiles at the ribbon cutting ceremony for
the new renovations at Bogie. The three phase project is slated to be completed sometime
in 2012 at a cost of over 65 million dollars.
By Leigh Clifton

Boca Ciega High students returned to school a week ago to a newly renovated
gymnasium, music building and auditorium. Part of a three phase project, with
a cost of over 65 million dollars, the renovation has been going on for nearly
a year and this phase of construction is slated to be completed by the end of
December.
Lobby, ticket and concessions areas have been added in the auditorium as
well as the newly renamed Kenneth Robinson gym. In addition, the auditorium
has all new lighting, sound and new rigging for the curtains for the growing
theatre department. The music building got a major face lift inside, including
new carpet, paint and a few minor structural updates. Bogie's theatre and
music department are an integral part of the student learning experience;
many participants have gone on to major careers, including screen star Angela
Bassett.
In 2011, Phase II of the project begins and all of the administration offices,
including the Principal's office will be temporarily housed in the old Gulfport
Little League offices while the original offices are torn down. All of the
finger buildings in the center of the school will be torn down as well; student
classrooms will be relocated into a new three story building; the temporary
modules currently used for freshman will be removed. The medical magnet
building will be getting a sprucing up and the current library will be gutted,
becoming classrooms and the vocational building will also remodeled. When
all the finger buildings currently in the center of the schools compound come
down, the new administration building will be put in its place and the cafeteria,
media center and new library will be to one side. This construction should be
completed by December of 2011.
Phase III, the final phase, will be the renovation of the Little League property
the school bought last year. According to Bogie Principal Paula Nelson, the
plan was to originally redo the existing ball fields as practice fields for softball
and baseball. But Bogie sports alumni, including attorney Dave Punzak who
played ball at Bogie, have spearheaded an earnest fundraising campaign to
upgrade the fields to game-ready status and add dugouts, concessions stands
and rest rooms so that Bogie can truly have a home field on which to play it's
games.
"While Hoyt Field has been part of a strong partnership with the City of
Gulfport, this is a great opportunity for our baseball team to have a close, home
field, where they can use the concessions to raise money that will go directly
back into the program," Principal Nelson said.


Become a Mentor
Gulf Coast Community Care needs
volunteers age 30 and older for its
Adults Mentoring Children program.
Volunteers are matched with children
who need a positive adult role model.
Many of the children are in foster
care or live with a single parent who
is going to school and working. There
is a need for volunteers for children
of all ages.
Volunteers give the gift of time to
one child and are provided social
events and support by agency staff.
No experience is necessary. There
are no costs. Volunteers spend a few
hours a week in simple activities such
as reading, fishing, baking, teaching
a craft or visiting a park with a
child. We have children throughout
Pinellas waiting for mentors!
To learn how you can make a lasting
difference in the life of a child, please
call Beverly 479-1841 or Fanya
at 479-1800 ext. 3031. Funding is
through the Juvenile Welfare Board
of Pinellas County.

Excerpts heard at the September 1, 2009 Gulfport City Council Meeting


Public Comment & Council Quotes


"The city manager should reside in Pinellas
County. It was not my first choice or several oth-
ers."-Lynne Brown, about proposed changes to the
charter regarding the city manager's residency require-
ment.

"They never explained to us that there would be
18 school buses arriving at various times,"-Jim
O'Reilly, in response to allegations that the Pinellas
County School Board told the city that they would use
the former Winn-Dixie parking lot as a bus stop for ap-
proximately 60 schoolchildren.
"Someone needs to be down there until you get it
worked out. I know you're going to get it worked
out but these things take time. I don't know if
someone needs to get on the phone to Rick Bak-
er and say 'Let's split the cost of this crossing
guard."'- Shannon Irvin, in response to city officials
vowing to "get to the bottom" of the bus stop situation
at the old Winn-Dixie parking lot.
"I would like to think we were working towards
making it a true charter that can only be changed
by referendum,"-Bob Newcomb, expressing surprise
that the city can change the charter without a referen-
dum.

"Everybody inside and outside the city complains
about the mosquitoes at my house"-Katherine
Reynolds, asking council to take care of the mosquitoes
that she says she believes stems from the Tangerine
Greenway. Mayor Yakes said the city would contact
the County's Mosquito Control.


"Lowering the millage rate for political gain
when property values are deflated is a tactical
savings that was good for this year; it is not a
strategic savings... I ask you to please increase
the millage rate to 3.85 so that the city recognizes
the same property tax revenues as it did this past
year."-Margarete Tober

"Mr. Minkoff has told me that he needs to whisper
to do his job."-Lee Stapella

"That's great. I'm sure they have the law and
knowledge to do that,"-Mayor Mike Yakes at city
staffs suggestion that Stetson get letters of no objec-
tion from adjacent property owners to use off-campus
property for parking.

"That is covered for elected officials only and
the information Ms. Stapella gave me actually
confirms that,"-Interim City Attorney Tm Minkoff,
about the legality of his whispering during council
meetings.

"It's something that's very real that could happen
and a lot of people who are responsible for put-
ting that through don't live where we live,"-Coun-
cilman Sam Henderson, speaking out against offshore
drilling. Vice-Mayor Bob Worthington and Mayor Mike
Yakes also expressed opposition to offshore drilling.

"In the long run we lose, and when we lose, we
lose Florida,"-Mayor Mike Yakes, about offshore
drilling for oil.

Green in the Facebook
The more time college students
spend on Facebook, the more likely
they are to become jealous of their
romantic partners, leading them to
spend even more time on the social
network site looking for additional
information that will further fuel
their jealousy.
So write researchers at the University
of Guelph in Canada in the journal
CyberPsychology & Behavior. The
scientists surveyed college adults
involved in romantic relationships
and discovered that those who
spent time on social network sites
like Facebook were often exposed
to information about their partners
that made them jealous, prompting
them to spend even more time online
searching for new, jealousy-provoking
information.
Some participants in the study
described their increasing use of
Facebook as addictive.

STORIES FOR THE
WAITING ROOM
Want to avoid the swine flu? Lose
some weight. Unpublished data from
the U.S. Centers for Disease Control
and Prevention show that of the 99
Americans who died in the early
stages of the swine flu pandemic, 45
percent were obese.
Most of the people who have died from
the H1N1 swine flu had an underlying
health problem that weakened their
ability to fend off the virus, from
chronic cases of cardiovascular or
pulmonary disease to diabetes and

Gabber September 3 September 9, 2009


asthma. But obesity appears to be
the biggest contributing factor. In
the United States, 26 percent of the
adult population is obese. The CDC
flu-fatality number suggests obesity
doubles the risk of getting seriously
ill with the swine flu.
LAST WORDS
You will not find me alive at sunrise.
-- Reputed prophet Nostradamus
(1503-1566). The former French


apothecary allegedly spoke these
words (or something similar) to his
secretary on the evening of July 1,
1566. He was found dead the next
day. The prognostication may be
the only one Nostradamus actually
got right, though it was hardly a
surprise, because he suffered from
chronic gout, which had recently
worsened.

I By Cathy SalustriW


A few months back the reporter
who covered St. Pete Beach
City Commission meetings
quit and my editor asked me to cover
the meetings until he found a suit-
able replacement. Because I will
write about anything for money and
because I'm a little scared to tell
him no, I agreed. I took my laptop,
notebook and lucky pen and I trotted
down to city hall, less than a half-
mile from my home. This, I thought,
would be a piece of cake.
I later described the meeting as
Dante's ninth level of hell on ste-
roids. St. Pete Beach City Commis-
sion meetings that last less than
four hours are like fairies: I want to
believe, even though I've never seen
one. My first clue should have been
when the commissioners had all
packed not only lunch but a change
of clothes.
A lot of the meetings I attended
swelled with bluster and tension
about height restrictions and how the
city intends to deal with them. We're
talking about hours of filibuster-like
discussion infused with a passion I
generally reserve for grand patri-
otic acts or my friend Leah's lemon
cream sauce over snapper. It seemed
like a lot of pointless posturing and
stirring the pot to no productive end.
As a newcomer to the beach and an
outsider at the meetings, I thought it
was perfectly clear that the commis-
sion had no intention of building high
rises along Upham Beach or any-
where else. They had certain laws in
place but these people insisted that
wasn't enough. At best, I thought
their protests were over-the-top. At
worst, I cast about commission cham-
bers looking for the Kool-Aid they all
must be drinking.
I spent a couple months whining
about the people who spoke and how
I didn't get what they were talking
about and why did they go on and on
about height and referendums and
for god's sake could they please just
shut up so I could get out of there and
go watch Deadliest Catch? But then
my cousin came down for a visit and
we spent some time on Clearwater


Beach.
I grew up in Clearwater, went to the
beach more than I went to church,
and put more than my fair share of
miles on my mom's K-car cruising up
and down Mandalay. My high school
held its senior prom and 10-year re-
union at the old Holiday Inn; my ma-
rine biology teacher sent us to the
north beach to net for fish. I knew all
the best places to park that weren't
technically illegal, and I knew where
to go to hang out and be away from
the tourists. Most importantly, I frit-
tered away hours of a teenage exis-
tence walking up and down the beach
itself. I could take the Plymouth,
drive up and down the beach, and see
from the road which stretch of beach
had the least people.
I don't get up there much anymore,
because seeing what the Clearwater
City Commission has allowed on
Clearwater Beach breaks my heart.
My beach is gone. The Spyglass Mo-
tel, a landmark, got demolished and
a nondescript pink giant swelled up
in its place. I understand the rooms
sell for about $2 million and the
Hyatt manages the hotel. High rises
line the beach on both ends.
Now everything there calls out to
tourists, not locals. If you live on
Clearwater Beach, good luck catch-
ing a movie or buying groceries or
anything else not directly related to
alcohol or t-shirts. You can't even see
the beach from the road anymore; I'm
assuming it's still there. Someone
certainly would have mentioned high
rises marching out to sea, wouldn't
they?
Throughout the day my mind con-
trasted Clearwater Beach and St.
Pete Beach and I realized that St.
Pete Beach is every bit as tourist-
capable as Clearwater Beach, except
without the high rises and with a
sense of community.
That's because there's really two St.
Pete Beaches. There's the one where
people from Michigan visit in the
winter. They stay at the Tradewinds
or the Don or the Travelodge and
they eat at the Hurricane or Crabby
Bill's or order a pizza. They get frozen


drinks at any number of beach bars
and they have a lovely time. We are,
of course, glad to have them. Mostly.
Then there's our beach.
There's the beach with the new burg-
er place; I walk Calypso past it almost
every night and see the owner and her
boyfriend sharing a beer on the patio
after closing time. I don't know how,
but she always remembers my name
as well as my affinity for her white
wine mustard. They do a good tourist
business but it's not unheard of to see
the fire marshal picking up a to-go or-
der, either.
There's the beach where a local
named Paul comes by Dolphin Vil-
lage every night to see the sailboats
leave the dock. He walks down from
his home, shakes a Pall Mall out of his
pack, and sits and watches the boats
sail away, loaded with visitors eager
to see the sun set over the Gulf.
There's the beach with the Beach
Theatre. This theatre cannot possibly
compete with BayWalk, and no one
wants them to try. It's old, it has one
screen, and things don't always work.
I've walked in moments before a mov-
ie started to see a kid with a set of
wrenches trying to fix a broken seat.
I've been there when the popcorn ma-
chine was broken or when they'd run
out of popcorn. Sometimes the pro-
jectionist can't get the film in focus.
But you know what? The kid fixed the
seats, the clerk behind the counter
popped more popcorn and delivered
it seat-side, and they get the film in
focus eventually. The guy behind the
counter recognizes the regulars and
talks animatedly about what films
the Beach Theatre will show next.
He's all of what, 23?, and he connects
with this gloriously run-down theatre
and its loyal local following more than
anyone I've ever seen selling $15 pop-
corn "value meals" at BayWalk.
There's the beach where on Sunday
mornings I walk down to the Upham
Beach concession stand for coffee and
eggs. The coffee cups don't match and
I think they'll slap you if you attempt
to order a latte, but locals wander by,
drink their no-frills coffee, and watch
families from Ohio and Missouri build
sandcastles on our beach. One regu-
lar spreads the Sunday paper out on a
picnic table, drinks his coffee, and oc-
casionally raises an eyebrow at anoth-
er regular, a heron waiting patiently
about three feet away.

Hard Candy (from previous page)

There's the beach with Shaner's, the
mom-and-pop grocery where they'll
cut up a bone for Calypso but also
warn me about her getting too many.
They take special orders but don't ask
for a name or a deposit; it's a small
town, after all. They know who you
are and trust you at your word. Yes,
they're small and no, they aren't open
as late as the chain stores, but their
fish and meats cost less than the su-
permarkets and they'll cut up a bone
for Calypso if I ask. No, they don't
have their guarantee posted on the
wall, but then, I've never needed it.
There's the beach where the resi-
dents show up and argue about what
I deemed imaginary height threats
and sue the commissioners and rail
against the city, but when the beach
post office gets threatened with clo-
sure, they all arrange a Stone Soup-
style rally where everyone offers to do
something to help.
When Shells closed no one seemed
to notice but the Swigwam, a locals
bar behind the Shells, reopened al-
most instantly. These places aren't
just restaurants and shops; they're
the heart of the beach that props up
the tourist trade; they give a superfi-
cially transient town a sense of place
and home and comfort. Walking along
Clearwater Beach last week I tried to
find places that would offer its locals
that same sense of community.
No one walked his dog along the
splashy BeachWalk. None of the
shopkeepers sat outside with a cool
drink and waved at regulars. Every
restaurant had matching coffee mugs.
The mom-and-pop hotels of my youth,
along with their 1960s-era signs and
jalousie windows, yielded to towering
condos stretching skyward and blot-
ting out the beach. The snack stand
once so like the one on Upham now
had polished wood floors, fancy chairs,
and an air-conditioned dining room. It
served green key lime pie and watered
down frozen drinks. T-shirt shops and
bars littered the main drag. I was
standing on Any Beach, U.S.A., and I
shivered in the August heat.
And all of a sudden those arguments
at the Commission meetings didn't
seem so silly anymore.

How To Slash Your
Health Care Costs
The cost of health care in
America is skyrocketing. It's a
fact I know well, having been hit
with an 18.96 percent increase to
my health insurance premium.
My first instinct was to cancel my
insurance and take my chances.
Then I came to my senses and
placed an emergency call to Michelle
Katz, author of "Healthcare for
Less: Getting the Care You Need
- Without Breaking the Bank."
Michelle gave me the advice I
needed. She reminded me to ask for


quotes from other health insurance
providers in my area, and she offered
tips to cut the cost of health care:
--Ask for a discount. You can ne-
gotiate with service providers for
lower medical bills. According
to the Foundation for Taxpayer
and Consumer Rights, every-
thing in health care is negotiable,
especially if you are underin-
sured or have a high deductible.
--Cash upfront. Never be afraid
to ask for a further discount from
a health care provider or facil-
ity if you pay with cash. A 10
percent discount is reasonable.


Pa fncho SPasadena Only
Thursday 9-3 Baked Ham with Broccoli bake casserole
Friday 9-4 Chicken Cacciatore with Spaghetti
Saturday 9-5 BLT Wrap with chips
Monday 9-7 Jumbo Hot Dog, baked beans and fries
Tuesday 9-8 Fettuccine Alfredo
Wednesday 9-9 Country Fried Chicken, mashed pot. & gravy, mixed veggies
Thursday 9-10 Italian Stuffed Pepper with marinara sauce


--Use outpatient services. Many
procedures, even simple surger-
ies and invasive tests, can be done
without your being admitted as an
inpatient. Arrange to arrive at the
hospital first thing in the morn-
ing so you can be home by evening.
--Walk-in clinic. For routine issues,
such as earaches and sore throats,
visit a walk-in clinic in a retail
store, such as CVS or Walmart.
No appointment is necessary.
Some clinics even take insurance.
--Get samples. When your doctor
prescribes a new medication, ask
whether it is a brand name. If so,
ask whether there are generics or
over-the-counter drugs that could
do the same job. At http://www.
CRBestBuyDrugs.org, you can find
reports that you can download and
bring to your next appointment. If
the brand name is a must, ask the
doctor for samples so you can see
how you respond before you spend
the money for a month's worth.
--Be a splitter. High-dose pills gener-
ally are priced the same as their low-
dose counterparts. Ask your doctor
whether you can safely split a high-
er-dosage pill in half. Twice as many
doses for the same amount of money
can be like getting 50 percent off.
--Can't afford meds? If you have no
prescription drug coverage, there are
a number of public and private as-
sistance programs that can help you
pay for medications. Pharmaceutical
companies run patient-assistance
programs, and many states and other
programs can help. The Partnership
for Prescription Assistance offers a
site, http://www.pparx.org, devel-
oped by major pharmaceutical com-
panies and patient-advocacy groups.
If you are eligible, you can enroll in
programs through this site. Another
site, http://www.NeedyMeds.
org, offers other prescription
and drug assistance programs.
--An aspirin a day. Just one aspi-
rin a day will keep the cardiologist
away by sharply lowering your risk
of a heart attack. Taking an aspirin
a day costs about 20 cents a day. The
cost to treat a heart attack -- includ-
ing hospital, doctor and medications
-- is tens of thousands of dollars and
rising. Consult with your doctor be-
fore you take on an aspirin regimen.

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
with lonely, isolated seniors. Please
call Pat Hazell at 727-573-9444, ext.
291 to start helping your community
today.

Telephone Reassurance
Program
Did you know that volunteers from
the Gulfport Senior Center make a
morning telephone call every day
of the week except Sundays and
holidays to make a welfare check
for many Gulfport seniors? They
constantly hear from those they call
who live alone how reassuring it is to
hear that friendly voice on the phone
to start their day.
If you are a person who would
like to add your name to the list of


Gulfport residents who already enjoy
this service, call the Senior Center
and speak to Susan at 893-2237 or
Cynthia at 893-1231. This service is
free to all Gulfport residents.

Every Tuesday from 9 a.m. until
3 p.m. you can find the Gulfport

St. Pete Beach to Discuss Hotel Rezone

By Kate Bradshaw

This Thursday the St. Pete Beach
City Commission will discuss whether
to approve Ordinance 2009-15, which
would change the zoning of the land on I
which Pass A Grille's Coconut Inn sits.
The recently-renovated 11-unit hotel, ||
housed in a structure built over 80 years
ago, is in an area zoned for residential
properties, but was grandfathered into
the community plan.
Owner Joe Caruso, who bought the
hotel nearly a year ago, says that he
wants to safeguard his future right
to rebuild the property should the
building become obsolete (The Gabber
erroneously implied last week that he
had planned to rebuild immediately).
Under its current zoning, he would only
be able to rebuild his hotel in the event
of a catastrophe such as a hurricane or
fire.
Caruso says that the hotel, once called
the LeRoy Motel, was in "just horrible,
horrible shape" when he bought it; that
nightly room rates were in the 20 dollar
range. Coconut Inn owner, Joe Caruso wants to
It's a far cry from what's there now. know that he can rebuild if the building
"It's like Key West," Caruso says of the becomes obsolete.
hotel. "It's part of the charm (of Pass A
Grille)."
Caruso stresses that he has no plans of redeveloping the property, but would
like for the option to be there in the distant future.
"I don't want to rebuild it now, but my children might want to rebuild it 20
years from now," Caruso says. "There might come a time when this building is
obsolete."
Under the current zoning, Caruso would only be able to build single family
homes, not a multi-unit structure, on the property if he were to redevelop.
Some who live near the inn spoke out against the ordinance at a recent City
Commission meeting. With current Federal Emergency Management Authority
flood avoidance requirements in place, they said, maximum building height
would be 43 feet. A number of neighbors expressed concern over potential
traffic increases that might be associated with the hotel, which sits one property
inland from Gulf Way.
Neighbor Rusty Ercius told the Gabber that he lists the possibility that Caruso
would use his ancillary unit entitlement for a restaurant or similar business
among his concerns.
"Wouldn't that enhance the saleability of his property?" he said.
Another is that Caruso would rebuild immediately. The Coconut Inn, which
consists of two lots (one of which is a parking lot), can have no more than eleven
units. Ercius says that Caruso could combine units in the existing hotel and put
up another building in the adjacent lot.
"They're all rumors," Caruso says. "I could put up a building there, but it
doesn't make sense."
He points to his plans of turning part of the other lot into a barbecue area,
complete with gazebos, though Ercius says the project seems slow-going.
Caruso, who also owns the nearby Sabal Palms Hotel, among other properties,
says his past work should reveal his true intentions.
"I have a track record they should base what I do on. Not rumors," he says.
He cites the Sabal Palms, and the fact that he had a chance to knock down the
hotel, then subdivide and build multi-million dollar homes on the property.
"I am not a greedy developer like they paint me," he says. "(The Sabal Palms)
is still standing here 22 years later."


Registration Forms
for Special Needs
Persons with special needs (medical,
transportation, mobility and other
needs) must register with the
Pinellas County Office of Emergency
Management if they might need
special assistance at the time of a
hurricane threat. Registration forms
are available at the Maximo Resource
Center located at 4815 34 Street S. in
St. Petersburg. The Center is staffed
by volunteers and is open Monday
through Friday from 9 a.m. until
noon and until 3 p.m.
Persons with pets must also register
for pet evacuation and shelter needs.
Registration forms for pets are also
available at the Center.
The Center's staff volunteers also
have telephone numbers for agencies
and services that may be needed
during a hurricane threat. Call
866-7177.

Seniors vs. Crime
Seniors vs. Crime is a project of
the Florida Attorney General's
Office. If someone has taken ad-
vantage of you through a con, scam
or unfair business practice, come
into their office at 330 Fifth Street
N. in St. Petersburg or phone 552-
1807. They are open Mondays and
Thursday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
The service is free and confidential.

buke Him We Humbly Pray; and Do You Oh
Prince of the Heavenly Host, By the Power
of God, Thrust Into Hell Satan and the Other
Evil Spirits Who Prowl About the World For the
Ruin of Souls. Amen. St. Michael, I Resort
to Your Protection and in My Faith, Offer This
Light Which Shall Burn Every Tuesday. Com-
fort Me in My Difficulties and While Lodging in
the House of Our Savior Intercede for Me and
My Family That We Will Be Able to Hold God
Close to Our Hearts and Be Provided for in All
of Our Necessities. I Beseech You, to Have
Infinite Pity in Regard to Favors I ask of You
(Name Them) So That I May Be Able To Over-
come All Difficulties as You Did the Dragons
atYour Feet. Our Father (Say 3 Times). Hail
Mary(Say 3 Times). Glory Be (Say 3 Times).
This Prayer is to be Said 9 Tuesdays, in Suc-
cession and Each Tuesday a Candle Shal
Be Lighted and a Copy of This Prayer Lft in
the Church to Help Another Soul in Distress
and Support the Devotion to St. Michael. This
Miraculous Saint Grants Everything, No Mat-
ter How Difficult, Before the Termination of 9
Tuesday. G.F.

POWERFUL PRAYER TO HOLY SPIRIT -
Holy Spirit, you who solves all problems, who
lights all roads so that I can attain my goal, you
who give me the divine gifts to forgive and for-
get all evil against me and that in all instances
of my life you are with me, I want in this short
prayer to thank you for all things and confirm
once again that I never want to be separated
from you, even in spite of all material illusions.
I wish to be with you, in eternal glory. Thank
you for your mercy toward me and mine.
G.B.
MAYTHE SACRED Heart of Jesus be adored,
glorified, loved, and preserved throughout the
world. Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, pray for us.
Blessed Mother, pray for us. St. Jude, worker
of miracles, pray for us. Say this prayer for
ninet days, nine times a day. Then publish this
prayer. ThankYou, Jesus.
