2009 Tangerine Blues Fest Turn the Volume
Down in Gulfport
By Cathy Salustri

Two weeks ago a Gulfport woman walked
into the police department holding a
warning letter from the police. Lieutenant
Rob Vincent expected she was unhappy
about the letter, which warned her about
the volume of her car stereo as she drove
on 49th Street. Vincent said the person
who complained called the woman a
"repeat offender."
Instead of complaining or maintaining
her innocence, the woman surprised
Vincent.
"I want to know what I can do because I
don't want to have my neighbors upset at
me," she told him.
Vincent put her in touch with the
complainant and the worked out the
problem, and the city's relatively new
noise abatement program chalked up a
success story.
The program set up a complaint
procedure for loud car stereos and other
loud noises.
"Essentially we recognized we had a
problem because people would call and
complain about cars going down the street
with loud music, but by the time the police
could get to the area the car was gone.
The Ztones brought their innovative west coast vibe to There was nothing we could do," Vincent
Gulfport at the Blues fest last Saturday. .

Jim O'Reilly: Is He Gulfport's New City Manager?

By Cathy Salustri
Although Gulfport city council has not yet voted or discussed the
matter, the mayor and four council members all told The Gabber they
want to hire Interim City Manager Jim O'Reilly. Council so strongly
wants O'Reilly for the job that they plan to change the charter to allow
the city manager to live outside Gulfport.
The former city manager, Tom Brobeil, left Gulfport 14 months ago
for health reasons. Prior to Brobeil's departure O'Reilly filled in as city
manager several times. Last year council directed O'Reilly to look into
search firms that would assist the city with finding a new city manager.
O'Reilly provided council with information about several search firms;
council never acted on the information or asked O'Reilly to follow up on the companies.

Volume, from front page

Taking a lesson from the other
Gulfport, the city set up a way for
people to submit noise complaints
on the police department's web site.
As in Gulfport, Mississippi, anyone
who hears a booming car stereo can
report the offending vehicle. The
police trace the license plate number
and send the car's owner a warning
letter.
While police must observe the noise
violation to issue a citation, they do
not need to hear the noise to send
the letter.
Vincent says the department's
sent out only a few letters since the
program started.
"We've probably had to do it at least
a dozen times; it's not a frequent
thing for us. It's better than not
doing anything about it," he said.
To lodge a noise complaint on a
vehicle, visit GulfportPolice.com.
For noise complaints at a house or
building, Vincent says people should
call the police department's non-
emergency number, 893-1030.
"If it's occurring right now at a
stationary place, call us and we'll
come out right now," Vincent said.
Also, Vincent cautions, people
shouldn't put themselves in danger
to get a license plate number or
photo of the vehicle.

City Manager,
from front page

Earlier this year council directed
the charter review committee to
look at ways to change the charter
to allow the city manager to live
outside Gulfport. O'Reilly, his wife
and daughter live in Seminole. At
the September 15 council meeting
council approved an ordinance that
would allow the city manager to live
outside the city; next Tuesday night
council will vote on the ordinance a
second and final time.
Council's tacit decision to forego a
search for a city manager as well as
its alterations to the charter caused
at least one citizen to contact council
and question their actions.
Peg Wesselink, owner of Peg's
Cantina in Gulfport, said she didn't
know "if O'Reilly was the best person
for the job or not" but she wondered
about the process.
"What is the educational criteria
for the job? Is there any? Can anyone
who wishes to apply be considered?
Is there an obligation to interview
people who have qualifications
consistent with a job description?"
Wesselink asked council members
Sam Henderson and Michele King in
an e-mail.
Wesselink e-mail said that she had
no opinion on O'Reilly's suitability
for the job but wondered about the
process of changing the residency
requirement.
None of the council members
shared her concerns; each council
member also said they saw no need
to search beyond the O'Reilly for a
city manager.
"You're not going to find another
person out there with the attributes
he has. The fact that he grew up
here is huge, because he understands
Gulfport. Gulfport is not like any
place else. It's not like Indian Rocks
Beach, it's not like Tarpon Springs,"
King said, then added praise for
O'Reilly's work ethic. "He has a solid
respect for the council. He's not your
typical city manager, he knows how
to delegate. I like the way he works
with his staff. He really does do a
wonderful job."
Mayor Mike Yakes said O'Reilly's
background as well as his personal
experiences with O'Reilly makes him
the best candidate.
"I've known Jim as a friend for


probably 35 years but I became
aware of his abilities when he served
as chair of the planning and zoning
board. He absolutely demonstrated
the knowledge of the city and the
balance of our community. He was a
volunteer with little league and other
components of the city; Jim served as
elected official on city council where
he was councilmember of Ward 3.
I was impressed with his ability
to represent the city as an elected
(official) and then his progression
speaks for itself," Yakes said.
Other than six years in the 1980s
when O'Reilly owned a small business
(four years ofwhichhe simultaneously
held a job at the city of St. Pete Beach)
his entire career has consisted of
employment with St. Pete Beach and
Gulfport. O'Reilly worked his way up
at St. Pete Beach Leisure Services;
both his personnel file there as well
as his Gulfport file contain letters of
commendation from citizens as well
as positive performance reviews.
Neither file contains any record of
disciplinary action.
Councilmember Sam Henderson
called O'Reilly "straightforward
and honest, even in the situations
we disagree on" and said he had no
qualms about foregoing a search for
city manager.
"I can't think of a more capable
or qualified person to be the city
manager of Gulfport then Jim
O'Reilly. Based on his experience
and what a fantastic job he's done in
the six months I've worked with him,
I was willing to take him for that
position without looking elsewhere,"
Henderson said.
"Do I think we could get a person
with more professional credentials?
Yes, I do," Vice Mayor Bob
Worthington said, adding "But right
now everybody likes our city the
way it is and the way its running,
and if we bring somebody new in, a
professional city manager, the first
thing he's gong to do is start firing
our employees because they're going
to want their own people in there.
They're going to clean house because
they want people loyal to them."
"I think that by bringing in a new
professional city manager with all the
credentials, it would just upset the
entire apple cart," Worthington said.
He also added one other reason not to
look past O'Reilly for a city manager:
money.
"There is very little money, so we're


not doing a job search just like we
didn't do a job search for fire chief,
we're not doing a job search for a
police chief. It's very costly to do a
job search; it could cost $30,000 or
$40,000 dollars or more," he said.
Councilwoman Judy Ryerson also
said the city didn't need to spend the
money.
"A search would be a waste of time
and money because you're not going
to find anybody who knows the
community and city as well," Ryerson
said. "He's done an exceptional job
this past year. I think because of his
knowledge and abilities he's our best
bet and he would be a waste of time
and money."
O'Reilly has a Bachelor's degree
in Public Administration from St.
Leo's college. Although his resume
doesn't list it, he also served as
a councilmember for the city of
Gulfport.
O'Reilly would not tell The Gabber
whether or not he would move to
Gulfport or accept the position, only
that "I'd be very respectful and listen
to the mayor and city council if they
wanted to explore further things."
He expressed sincere discomfort
about talking about his candidacy for
city manager.
"I just think it's premature for us to
have this discussion," O'Reilly said.
Council has not offered him the job
or discussed salary with him. They
also did not ask him whether or not
he would relocate to Gulfport.
Initially, O'Reilly said he wouldn't
pursue the city manager job because
he was concerned about time for his
daughter; now, he says, his daughter
sees him more than ever.
l Iy family finds they see me more
due to the fact that I can delegate
some responsibility that, in the past,
were totally my responsibility. Now,
my family gets to attend as a guest
versus dad having to be there to
work."

Council will vote on the ordinance
allowing the city manager to live
outside Gulfport this Tuesday night
at the regular council meeting.
You can contact Cathy Salustri at
CathySalustri@TheGabber.com.

had to say about Jim O'Reilly? Check

Heather Rosensteel and Baby Ka-
lik, Gulfport: I I boyfriend Fred
and I took Kalik to the Blues fest; he's
just a little over a month old and it
was his first party. We loved the mu-
sic and the ribs from Shamac's were
really good. I was sitting in a chair,
rocking the baby, when a guy came up
to me and took his picture. He gave
me a shirt for Kalik that was signed
by all the members of all three bands,
because he said Kalik was the young-
est blues fan there. Isn't that funny?
This was all so awesome because Ka-
lk is truly a miracle baby. Fred and
I were never supposed to be able to
have children and then I got pregnant.
So he is really special and now has
the distinction as being the youngest
blues fan in Gulfport! We went to the
Fest last year and we actually liked
last year's better. It had more vendors
that included clothes and jewelry, not
just food like this year. Also it was so
hot; we went later, at six, when it was
starting to cool off a little. It might be
better if it went longer into the night
But we are making the Blues Fest an
annual tradition. We live in Gulfport
so it's convenient for us. Kalik will
have to start his very own blues shirt
collection."


Alexandra Crittenden, South
Pasadena: M11 boyfriend was in
town from Orlando and we were just
sitting around all morning on Satur-
day, so we decided to go down to the
Blues Fest later on that afternoon. I
liked the first band, the TomKats bet-
ter than then second one because they
were more rock and roll than blues.
The food was great; we love BBQ so
we ate at Shamac's tent. We drank
beer, had BBQ and blues, the perfect
combination! You can't go wrong with
a weekend like that. My boyfriend
was so excited, because he came down
last weekend and we ended up not do-
ing anything. Next year it would be
great if they could make it a two-day
event with more bands, if they can
find them. If they can't, I play the alto
sax; they can call me!"


I "-
Gordon Isco, Gulfport: "Yes, I
went and really enjoyed it. I didn't
make it to the first one last year so
I was happy to get there this year.
It was certainly a nice event. When
I arrived the first band was playing
and I thought they were actually
more rock than blues, but it was all
good. It would be nice to see the event
last later into the evening; it could
actually draw a larger crowd after
the sun goes down. Eight o'clock is
a little early to end it; people were
just getting started! I think if it had
gone later into the evening. I know
I would have stayed later to hang
out and listen to some great music.
I hope that maybe next year, the or-
ganizers will make it go later with
more bands."

Dave Underwood, Gulfport: "I went down to the park around 6 p.m. and got to see
the last band; they were really good. The planners could have made it later in the day
because I waited for the sun to go down some so it would be cooler. There is very little
shade there and I was standing by the sound tent trying to stay out of the sun. Maybe
next year it could be a two-day event. I drank a couple of beers and had some Shamac's
BBQ, which was really good. I was there last year and it was the same problem; way too
hot in the early afternoon and again, no shade. But I like the spot; it's not a bad spot for
a music fest. There's lots of parking on the street and surrounding areas. I do think it
should start later in the afternoon and go into the later evening hours. That's when it's
much cooler usually. I only got to see the last few songs of Sterling MaGee's band and
then heard the Z-tones. They were really good. I hope they come back next year."

Premier Choice: Flood Insurance That Pays You


By Cathy Salustri

V ery few people get a warm,
fuzzy feeling in their stomach
when they think of their
insurance company. The feeling
most people describe would likely
fall somewhere on the opposite end
of the spectrum from "warm and
fuzzy."
Jeff DeNight wants to change that.
Jeff co-owns two insurance agen-
cies, Bentley-DeNight Insurance
Services, a full service, independent,
Trusted Choice agency that offers
business, auto, home, commercial,
life, boat, motorcycle, RV and um-
brella policies. He also owns Premier
Choice Rebate Flood Insurance, a
flood insurance agency that sells
nothing but flood insurance.
How, you may wonder, is any of
this information supposed to make
you feel good about 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. For example, the second year
you'll get eight percent back, the
third year you'll get nine percent
back, and so on 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.
Premier Choice Flood Insurance
mails the rebate check roughly two
months after your flood policy goes
into effect or renews. The company
sends you a check rather than

Insurance, a flood insurance agency that shares its commissions with its


customers.

taking the money off the premium
so you can have the cash in your
hand and spend it on whatever you
choose- clothes, dinner out, or a
show.
So, you must wonder, does that
mean that Premier Choice Flood
Insurance policies cost more than
other flood 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 no different than
policies written by other agencies;
Their policies are underwritten
and supported by the federal
government through FEMA. The
only difference is that Premier
Choice Flood Insurance gives you
money back.
So where does that money come
from? It comes from the agency.
FEMA pays a commission to the
agencies that write their policies.
Jeff and his agency are sharing


- Paid Advertisement-


that commission with their
customers.
Jeff says Premier Choice can
afford to share its commission with
its customers since all the owners
are hands-on and they run a lean,
efficient operation.
Besides, 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.

SPCA Pet of the Week
Sable is such a sweet girl, but lately she's been
sad. Her owner, who loved her very much, had to
give her up due to medical issues. Sable is a senior
herself at 8 years old, but we all know that seniors
rock! She knows all the commands, like sit, stay,
lie down, and come. She is well behaved, obedient,
mild mannered and just wants to be loved. Sable
will be a wonderful companion and trusted best
friend to some lucky open hearted person. Please
drop by and see Sable at SPCA Tampa Bay, 9099 130 Avenue N. in Largo, or
call us at (727) 586-3591!

Meet Harley, a black male grey who is a loveable
and social pet with lots of personality. He gets along

you!" Oh, and he does that adorable greyhound "roo"
if he gets really excited. He likes riding in the car,
walks easily on leash and is ready to find his forever
family. If you would like to meet Harley or any of
our other greyhounds, please call Greyhound Pets of
America on (727) 595-7852, visit our website: www.greyhoundpets.com, or see

Community Band to
Perform Free Concert
The South Pasadena Community
Band will present the first concert of
the 2009-2010 season on Thursday,
October 8 at 7:30 p.m. in Galatea
Garden. The band is a community
relations initiative of the City of South
Pasadena and is free to the public.
According to Max Millspaugh, the
band's Musical Director, the concert
title is "Strike Up The Band". "We
will of course perform the title song
and we will include several spirited
marches including the always popular
"Stars and Stripes Forever" said
Millspaugh. The program will also
feature several big band favorites
made famous by music icons such as
Glenn Miller, Benny Goodman, and
Woody Herman. "This program is full
of audience favorites", he said. "We
will also honor former mayor Dick
Holmes for all of his support during
the concert," concluded Millspaugh.
Kathleen Peters, Mayor of South
Pasadena, commented that "the band
and the setting in Galatea Garden are
treasures for the city. We always look
forward to welcoming the people who
come to enjoy the evening. We invite
everyone to bring a chair or blanket,
get comfortable in the serene park,
and relax as our band weaves its magic
under the stars in the night air". Mrs.
Peters noted that ample free parking
is available and that in the event of
rain the concert will move indoors at
the city hall, which is adjacent to the
garden.
Galatea Garden is located at
7015 Sunset Drive South in South
Pasadena, which is behind (north) the
new Publix Grocery at the corner of
Pasadena Avenue and Gulfport Ave.

Something' On my mind
L By Bill Northrop B_Northrop@theGabber.com

Death, Medicine and its Costs


should Senator Edward Ken-
nedy have been given the ex-
traordinary medical care (at
extraordinary cost) he received to
preserve his life when his long term
(less than a year) prognosis was
hopeless? Should we have spent so
much money and medical resources
on imprisoned Susan Atkins, the
Manson follower and murderer of
Sharon Tate, when her case was
also hopeless? Both had inoperable,
malignant brain tumors.
Let's do have a discussion about
death, medicine, and its costs. Noth-
ing wrong with that. It's something
that has to be faced sooner or later.
Sooner appears to be the option be-
cause whatever medical health re-
form plan we get will address costs,
and according to reports 35 per cent
of Medicare costs are spent on "end-
of-life" care.
The initial proposal (no one has seen
all of the rest of the government pro-
posals) called for a voluntary discus-
sion of death between patient and
doctor using government guidelines
and oversight and undetermined re-
sources. This led Sarah Palin to talk
about government death panels and
that led to a political uproar.
However, political uproar or not,
medical treatment for the dying is
costly as is everything that, in criti-
cal medical situations, tries to pre-
serve life. The questions are who
makes the decision, who determines
who is saved, and who pays for it,


and what are the criteria for keep-
ing someone alive?
First of all, "end-of-life" might also
mean "beginning of life" because we,
in the U.S. attempt to save pre-ma-
ture babies as early as 23 weeks. In
Europe, the guideline is 26. Heroic
efforts are made, sometimes bru-
tal, always expensive. Some survive
but with no quality of life. Some do
make it. Do we play a percentage
game and who decides?
What about the severely retarded
from birth? Do we determine life or
death or medical care based on what
a person might contribute to society
or what burden he or she might be
on society? Is a younger person re-
ally more valuable than an older
person in all circumstances? What
about people with dementia or Al-
zheimers?
Many of us have "living wills" in
which we give someone authority to
determine what "heroic" measures
should or should not be performed to
preserve our lives. It probably makes
sense to promote these pre-death ar-
rangements just as it makes sense
to plan your estate and funeral.
The big question, however, is who
and how is the decision made. Most
don't want the government making
the decision even though it appears
that the government is paying a lot
of the bills.
I won't go any further into this
gloomy subject. You can do your own
contemplating.

St. Petersburg Mayoral Candidates Debate


Candidate Kathleen Ford


It didn't take long for the
St. Petersburg mayoral
candidates to bear their teeth
at last Wednesday's south
side edition of the mayoral
debates, which took place at
Lakewood High School.
IN1I name is Bill Foster,
and according Mrs. Ford I'm
one of the good old boys,"
the Republican candidate
joked in his opening speech
after Democratic candidate
Kathleen Ford characterized
him as being part of an
exclusive network of well-
connected local politicians.
The two candidates,
both of whom are former
councilmembers, faced off
on the city's key issues,
including the proposed
rebuilding of Tropicana
Field, the budget and law
enforcement, sometimes
when addressing questions
that had little to do with
their topics of choice.
Lakewood students posed
an array of questions that
ranged from recycling to law
enforcement.
Foster seemed to focus
primarily on the latter, using
much of his introductory


Candidate Bill Foster
speech to address his ideas
on how to fight crime and
later reiterated them.
"I think our number one
challenge in this city is in
public safety," he said. "And
I am going to reemphasize
the focus of the police
department so that number
one priority of policing is in
crime prevention and not
response-oriented policing.
We are going to bring back
community policing in every
neighborhood."
When asked about her
views on public safety later
in the debate, Ford had a
different take on the issues
facing law enforcement,
which takes up $85 million of
St. Petersburg's $207 million
2009 budget.
"Why would we pick a
computer system that
doesn't talk to everybody
else, especially in this day
and age? So I think we need
to look at that," she said,
referring to that which the
police department uses.
"And, you know, we really
do need to have the victim's
advocate position restored."
The budget served as a


w w


major point of contention,
with Ford pointing out that
the city has raised taxes and
slashed jobs for years despite
reserves that she says
amount to $286 million.
"That money's been stuffed
away in what I call the city's
drawers and mattresses.
What are they saving it for?"
She said.
Foster said that the reserves
were there for a reason.
"We learned a lot from
September 11; we learned a
lot from Hurricane Katrina,"
he said. "We will not make
the same mistake New
Orleans did, and look for
solutions from Washington
or Tallahassee."
The question of how to
keep the Tampa Bay Rays in
St. Pete exposed one of the
biggest divides between the
two. Foster has supported
rebuilding Tropicana Field
in order to keep the team
from leaving before the lease
requiring them to play in the
Downtown St. Pete facility on
the stadium is up in 2027.
"There is nothing that I will
do as mayor to guarantee
that the Rays will stay in St.
Petersburg, because it's not
going to be up to me," Foster
said. "The Rays are a huge
economic driver in the city...
they do a lot for our quality
of life...But a judge can, with
all the evidence, determine
the economic damages
to a city, and that judge
can order them to write a
cashier's check and the Rays
would be gone. There is no
guarantee that there won't
be a breach."
Ford disagreed.

"There is a contract. The City
of St. Petersburg promised to
provide a dome, and Major
League Baseball promised
to play in that dome...It's a
stadium use agreement; it's
not just a lease agreement...
Under our city charter, the
mayor's obligation is to
enforce that agreement," she
said.
Ford also said that spending
taxpayer money on a new
stadium would be excessive
in these times.
"In this day and time, it is not
appropriate for city officials,
our mayor and city council to
be talking secretly with folks
about doing something like
that," she said. "There are
significant public funds at
stake."
One student asked why
the St. Pete mayor's salary
is nearly $30,000 higher
than that of the governor,
and whether the candidates
would cut their own
salaries..
"We have significant
challenges in the city and
as mayor I vow to not make
this a nine to five job," Foster
said, adding that "if we
have to have sweeping pay
freezes throughout the city's
departments I certainly think
it starts with the mayor."
The St. Petersburg election
takes place November Third,
and it is clear that monetary
policies will the biggest factor
in determining the winner.
"This is really, frankly,
what this race is all about,"
Ford said. "How do you want
your money spent?"







Gulfport's Annual Electronics and

Chemical Recycling Drive Nets Big Haul


By Leigh Clifton
Our Savior Lutheran School Principal Jesse Crosmer's pick up truck is overflowing with
over 30 used computer monitors the school can no longer use. "We were blessed to have
received new flat screen monitors from the VA this year, so we wanted to be green and
recycle the old ones," he said.

Gulfport held a recycling drive for electronics and chemicals last weekend,
hosting more participants this year than last, according to Pinellas County
Solid Waste Specialist Stephanie Lauster. 417 cars and business vehicles
dropped off more than 5,495 lbs of chemicals and almost 9000 lbs of electron-
ics. Although last year's electronics drop-off total was almost 2000 lbs more,
Lauster cited that last year the digital TV changeover from analog to digital
signal caused a lot of people to upgrade their TV, thus making a glut of older
analog models that people got rid of. There were a lot more computer compo-
nents this year, however and chemicals and solvent deposits were up slightly
from last year.
Traffic was steady in and out of the Rec Center parking lot all morning, with
some people making multiple trips. Our Savior Lutheran School Principal Jess
Crosmer brought in at least 30 color computer monitors in the back of his
pickup; it was filled to the brim with white plastic modules.
"We were fortunate enough to have over 30 flat screen monitors donated to
us this year from the VA," Crosmer said. "These old ones were just taking up
space and I wanted to recycle them. It is the green thing to do," he smiled as he
helped the young lady at the intake area lift the first of many out of the back
of his pickup truck.
Others brought stereo equipment that worked fine but just had no room for
it anymore. Creative Recycling of Tampa took in the many types of electronics.
Workers said that the components will be hand sorted at the plant and any
electronics device that is still usable will be donated to local charities.

Email your request to News@theGabber.com


By Cathy Salustri
Q: What do they do in Planning all day? (Taken from the budget survey
Gulfport sent out with water bills several months ago)
A: Actually, it isn't called Planning in Gulfport; it's Community Develop-
ment. And they have plenty to keep them busy, says Interim City Manager
Jim O'Reilly. While the department does some planning, it also deals with any
and all zoning issues. Community Development staff also takes responsibility
"for maintenance and implementation of the Comprehensive Plan and associ-
ated Land Development Regulations."
That means that before anyone can build anything, Community Development
makes sure the building and its uses will stay in line with what Gulfport resi-
dents have told the city they want. If someone wants to put up a fence that's
higher than city rules allow, these are the people who decide if they may do
so.
Community Development reviews occupational license applications, oversees
Building Permitting and Inspections and Code Enforcement Divisions, as well
as the Waterfront Redevelopment and Economic Development Advisory Com-
mittee Districts.
This department also deals with flood control and has some oversight of Gulf-
port's participation in the national Flood Insurance Program. Only landown-
ers who live in cities that participate in the national Flood Insurance Program
received subsidized (read: lower) flood insurance rates.
But wait... there's more. Community Development provides technical support
to the City Council, the Board of Adjustment, the Planning and Zoning Board,
Waterfront Redevelopment Advisory Board and Economic Development Advi-
sory Committee.
And that is what they "do all day" in Community Development.

Bachman was selling the garden stones, painted by Creative Clay student artists to help
raise money for the many programs Creative Clay offers developmentally challenged artists

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


S guess you could say my motto
is'been there, done that'," says
SKeith Sanders, from the law
office ofAndre 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
can really relate to what people are
going through," said Sanders. "Plus,
many people are very embarrassed
when they come to me, but I when I
tell them how embarrassing it was for
me to have to stand in front of judges
and colleagues who knew me and go
through the process myself, that usu-
ally helps to put people more at ease
and understand that I have been there
and done that MYSELF."
"You know, in 99 percent of bank-
ruptcy cases the situation is that bad
things happen to good people and then
they have gotten into a bad situation.
They have gone through an expensive
health crisis or a divorce or perhaps
someone has just gotten in over their
head with debt. It's very easy in to-
day's consumer driven society for that
to happen," said Sanders.
Sanders offers a free initial consul-
tation with no set time limit on it. "It
might take 20 minutes or it might
take two hours, it just depends of the
client's individual set of circumstanc-
es," he said. "We can meet at their
home or in my office, we can even so
it over the phone if I they can provide
me with the financial information we
need to discuss their situation." Sand-
ers says that he can often offer other
solutions besides bankruptcy such
as re-negotiating payment schedules
with creditors or reorganizing per-
sonal finances. "For example, I often
have people who can avoid bankrupt-
cy if they just get out from under the
burden of a house they can no longer

Gabber October 1 October 7, 2009


afford because of a job loss or some
other situation," he noted.
He moved to the Tampa Bay area
in July 2005 from Atlanta where he
was a partner/owner of Hamilton &
Sanders, LLC a firm specializing in
consumer bankruptcy and real es-
tate closings. The firm regularly filed
between 40-60 bankruptcy cases a
month. Prior to that he worked for
three other major law firms in Atlan-
ta from 1992 to 2003. All three firms
specialized in consumer bankruptcy
cases. He began his career as a staff
attorney for the United States Trust-
ee in Atlanta. He is licensed to prac-
tice law in both Florida and Georgia.
"I like what I do because I feel like I
can help people get a fresh start," said
Sanders. "When you have financial
difficulties it can really affect your
entire life. It has negative implica-
tions on you emotionally and it can
even damage or ruin your personal
relationships. I do try and encourage
people to come see me early on, even
if they are just starting to get behind
in payments or feel they are in over
their head. If you can start working
with an attorney from the very start
it can really reduce your stress level
as I can stop harassing creditor calls.
I can also see if we can work out ar-
rangements that a creditor might not
consider when working directly with
my client."
"Since the initial consultation is
free, you really don't have anything
to lose to meet with me and we can


assess your situation and see how
it might be best for you to proceed.
Bankruptcy can be one solution to
getting back on your feet financially,
but it may not be the best or only so-
lution for you. As an experienced pro-
fessional, I can help you sort through
those issues and see what is right for
you," he noted.
Sanders has held a number of semi-
nars and written professional papers
concerning bankruptcy law in gen-
eral, ECF requirements and new is-
sues. He is a former director of the
Bankruptcy Section of the State Bar
of Georgia.
Outside of the courtroom, Sanders
lives in an unusual home in Gulfport
that was one of the featured prop-
erties in last year's Pink Flamingo
Tour of Homes. It has a tree grow-
ing right up through the floor and
up through the ceiling of his kitchen.
He has three dogs and a cat. When
he was living in Atlanta he was very
involved with helping raise funds for
a number of AIDS service organiza-
tions. He is hoping to get involved
with local charitable groups as soon
as possible.

WellINEWS


By Scott Lafee
Depressed?
Have a Drink
Excessive alcohol consumption has
long been linked to poor physical
and mental health. But little or no
alcohol consumption can apparently
cause problems, too.
A Norwegian study looked at the
drinking habits and mental health of
more than 38,000 individuals. It found
that people who reported drinking no
alcohol over a two-week period were
more likely than moderate drinkers
to report symptoms of depression.
Individuals who identifiedthemselves
as complete teetotalers were at the
highest risk of depression.
Other factors, such as age, physical
health problems and number of close
friends, explained some, but not
all, of the increased risk. The study
authors also reported that abstainers
who were former heavy drinkers were
more likely to be depressed.
The study concluded that where
alcohol consumption is part of the
social custom and norm, abstinence
can be associated with being socially
marginalized, or the particular
personality traits that result in
abstinence may be associated with
mental illness.
Nonetheless, the researchers
were quick to note that alcohol
consumption is fraught with health
risks of its own, and that moderation
is key.
BODY OF KNOWLEDGE
Feelings of hopelessness appear to be
associated with increased thickening
of neck arteries in healthy, middle-
agedwomen, University of Minnesota
researchers say.
GET ME THAT. STAT!
Almost 15 percent of preschoolers
have atypically high levels of
depression and anxiety, according
to a Canadian study. The children
tended to have mothers with a history
of depression.

percent of the recommended total fat

It also contains 150 milligrams of

sugar; and 16 g of protein.
MEDTRONICA
2009 H1N1 flu
cdc.gov/H1N1FLU/
With the new flu season fast
approaching, this will be a primary
site for finding out the latest on the
2009 H1N1 flu strain, otherwise
known as the swine flu. Run by the
Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention, it posts daily and weekly
updates, plus practical information
about avoiding the disease or taking
care of someone who has it.
STORIES FOR THE
WAITING ROOM
It's not clear how they taste, but
French researchers report that
several species of lupins from
the mountains of Andalusia are
remarkably nutritious, with protein
content similar to other cultivated
legumes.


Cultivated lupin seeds are used as
cattle fodder. The Andalusian lupins
are wild, so there's no immediate
opportunity to rush down to your
local Whole Foods for a bag of them.
But you can find lupins in nurseries,
where they're primarily sold for their
lovely, colorful vertical displays of
flowers.

CURTAIN CALLS
The last formal duel in the United
States occurred in 1959 when Barney
Silva, a Los Angeles restaurant
owner, and jazz musician Jack Sorin
could not agree upon either's status
with the same woman. The men
met in Silva's living room, put their
backs together, marched 10 paces,
turned and fired handguns.
Both men died.

Museum Appraisal Fair


Appraiser Dianne Beck assesses two carved ivory bracelets Mary Jakubowski at last
saturday's antique appraisal fair. The result? A hunderd dollars each. Not bad, Jakubowski
said, considering she had paid $4 for them at a garage sale. The Gulf Beach Historical
Museum fundraiser was held at the St. Pete Beach Community Center. Beck said that
among the event's rarest items up for appraisal were a 17th century dagger with a lizard
skin sheath and perhaps the strangest of all, a leather sheath for a peg leg. "You never
know what's going to show up," she said. "I love it."

Coral Reef Redevelopment Could Start in November
By Kate Bradshaw


What's there now is a flamingo-pink
structure, which, from the street,
looks wind-swept and abandoned.
An uninformed passerby would chalk
up the Coral Reef Resort's vacant,
seemingly forlorn appearance to the
ravages of an economic storm, but
this would be incorrect.
Drive around the building's side,
past the windows outfitted with
matching pink boards, and you'll
see that the swimming pool is still a
healthy turquoise, a separate, units
contained in a yellow building on the
property are clearly occupied and
the back parking lot still provides
a challenge for those in search of a
spot.
Last week, property owner Robert
Fleeting held a public meeting to
discuss his plans to redevelop the
hotel portion of the property, which
Fleeting had to close in 2004 after
finding that the building, constructed
in 1963, was in violation of various
safety codes.
Dozens of people braved increment
weather to attend a public meeting
last Thursday to get the skinny on
Fleeting's redevelopment plan.
St. Pete Beach Senior Planned
Catherine Hartley said that this
is the first project of its scale to be
proposed since the passing of the city's
comprehensive plan. If approved, it
would involve demolishing the nearly
50-year-old building that's there
and replacing it with a $60 million,
12-story building. It would include 2
stories of parking, conference rooms,
a pool and a bar. The units, which
will serve as either hotel rooms or
timeshares, will be 1,000 square feet
in area and house two bedrooms and
two bathrooms each.
Hartley said that though residents
askedFleeting a number of questions,


the air at Pass A Grille's Warren
Webster Community Center was not
one of hostility or disagreement a
seemingly rare thing for a meeting
involving development on St. Pete
Beach. Questions revolved around
issues like setbacks and what would
happen to existing timeshares on the
property.
Fleeting does not yet have a backer
signed, so there is no telling which


major hotel chain will claim the
building.
Approval for the redevelopment,
Hartley says, could happen before
the end of the year; he can submit his
proposal for a final site plan review
30 days after Thursday's meeting.
The Community Development
Planning Division will then have 30
days to review and comment on the
project.

Sustainable Livii
By Shawn Dell Joyce

Recycling in School
In our culture, it often seems
that our children are much more
progressive than many of us stodgy
old-schoolers. Most kids can text,
download MP3 files, and tell you
what their carbon footprint is
without missing a beat. The rest of
us probably have a hard time doing
even one of those things.
Michele Daly, a senior at
Washingtonville High School, in
Washingtonville, N.Y., has been
trying to get a recycling program
going in her school for years. She
and her friends are incensed that
recyclables are tossed into the trash
cans in the cafeteria. Daly and her
friends are working with a Syracuse
University Project Advance public
affairs class to set up a recycling
program in her high school.
The school's principal and staff have
been supportive of the children's
efforts, however no funding has
been made available for recycling
bins. Daly and her friends have been
turning in recyclable bottles and
cans and saving the money to pay


for bins. So far, they have collected
almost $50. Daly plans to ask
charitable organizations to help.
Teegan Kennedy is a fourth-grade
teacher at Goshen Intermediate
School, in Goshen, N.Y. She has
worked with her class to establish
a yearlong recycling program in the
school. Using her own money, she
purchased recycling bins, which
her students decorated and placed
outside the doors of their classroom
and the teachers room. The students
wrote a compelling letter to the
teachers urging them to use the new
recycling containers. Every Friday,
her class collects and weighs the
paper and plastic and then posts the
numbers on the doors to encourage
more recycling.
So far, the kids have recycled
2,203 plastic items, including water
bottles and yogurt containers, and
244 pounds of paper. While that
may seem like a lot, it is only one
classroom's worth of waste. "We're
trying to let other people see that if
all nine of our fourth-grade classes
recycled roughly the same amount


during the year, we would have
recycled approximately 19,827
items. If all the third- and fifth-
grade classes also participated in
recycling, our numbers would be
around 36,054. Paper weight would
be over 2 tons," Kennedy says.
Now multiply Kennedy's figures by
the number of elementary schools
across the country and the need to
set up school recycling programs
really adds up. Kennedy's class
has been graphing their recycling
progress and is working on a school
newspaper to encourage other
classes to adopt their recycling and
composting program.
"I would love to share with others
what they have done. I think we're at
a critical point with our environment
where people are finally starting to
listen, and if a room full of 10-year-
olds can do it, so can anybody else!"
Want to start a school recycling
program?
--Decide what can be recycled, e.g.,
paper, plastic, printer cartridges,
batteries, clothing, etc.
--Set up a committee or club
responsible for the program.
--Determine who will get the
recyclables to the transfer station.
It could be a custodian, parent,
volunteer or trash company.
--Determine where recyclables can
be stored until transport.
--Count how many classrooms,
lounges and cafeteria recycling
containers will be needed, and raise
money for containers.
--Have committee or club members
make presentations to each
classroom about the importance of
recycling.
--Weigh and measure recyclables,
and post this information for the
whole school to see to encourage
more recycling.
--Hold contests and competitions
among grade levels or classrooms to
see who can recycle the most.
--Try to fund the whole program by
collecting bottle return money and
selling arts and crafts from reused
bottles and paper.
--Let the young people lead the
way, and try to keep up!
Go to http://www.KidsRecycle.org.
It is a great resource for teaching
materials on starting a school
recycling program.

By Tom Margenau

'Social' Security
Means What it Says
Q. In a past column, you said that
Social Security pays higher benefits
to poor people and lower benefits to
rich people. This is just another ex-
ample of social equalization, which
is what's wrong with our country
today. If you work hard all your life,
the government does its best to take
money away from you and give it to
those lazy folks who never worked
and don't deserve it. How can you
justify such a system?
A. Gosh, some people just have a
difficult time accepting the fact that
the word "social" in Social Security
means something. But it does NOT
mean that the government "pays
higher benefits to poor people and
lower benefits to rich people." I never
wrote that in a past column.
What it means is that there are cer-
tain social goals that were built into
the Social Security program from its
inception almost 75 years ago. One
of those goals is to help raise the
standard of living for lower income

ir" O


people when they reach retirement.
And that goal is reached through a
retirement benefit formula that is
skewed to give lower income people a
higher rate of return than is paid to
wealthier people.
That DOES NOT mean that poor
people get higher monthly Social Se-
curity benefits. But it does mean that
when comparing what they paid into
the system (in Social Security taxes)
to what they get out of the system (in
Social Security benefits), they get a
better deal than their higher income
counterparts.
Everyone's Social Security benefit
represents a percentage of their pre-
retirement monthly income when
averaged over most of their lifetime.
Although the benefit formula is very
complicated with many variable fac-
tors, broken down into its simplest
terms, I could say that a poor person
will get a "return rate" of about 70
percent whereas a wealthy person
might get a "return rate" of about
30 percent. In other words, a poor
person should get a Social Security
retirement benefit that represents
about 70 percent of his or her average
income, while a rich person would re-
ceive a monthly benefit representing
only 30 percent of his or her income.
And the reason rich people still get
much higher monthly Social Security
benefits than poor people is that 30
percent of a wealthy person's average
income is a lot more money than 70
percent of a poor person's income.
By the way, those of us with aver-
age incomes (and that's probably
most people reading this column) get
a return rate of about 40 percent. In
other words, our Social Security ben-
efits represent about 40 percent of
our pre-retirement income.
Q. I am a 62-year-old woman who is
potentially due widow's benefits from
my husband's Social Security record.
However, I can't collect any benefits
because I'm still working full time.
But I don't understand if these are
my earnings, why do they prevent me
from collecting my husband's Social
Security? He worked and paid Social
Security taxes for almost 50 years.


Why should my earnings prevent
me from collecting what my husband
worked so hard to pay for?
A. The answer is going to get into an-
other of the "social" aspects of Social
Security. If Social Security worked
like a normal pension or annuity sys-
tem, then you probably would be due
widow's benefits on your husband's
Social Security record even though
you're still working full time.
But as I alluded to in the first an-
swer, Social Security is a form of so-
cial insurance. And one of the social
goals of the original program was to
replace income a person loses when
he or she reaches old age.
The original Social Security plan-
ners thought that if an older man
or woman is retired, then obviously
that person has lost the major source
of his or her income, and Social Se-
curity benefits were designed to help
make up for that loss.
But then those original policy mak-
ers wondered what to do about folks
who had reached retirement age but
were still working. They figured that
there wasn't as much of a need for so-
ciety to replace their income via the
payment of Social Security benefits.
So they devised an "earnings test" as
the government calls it, or an "earn-
ings penalty" as I prefer to name it.
And that penalty clause in the law
says that if you make over a cer-
tain amount of money each year (an
amount that changes from year to
year but is currently set at $14,160),
you simply don't need Social Secu-
rity as much as retired people do, so
you lose most if not all of the benefits
you'd normally be due.
Personally, I believe these earnings
penalty rules have outlived their use-
fulness; I think they should be elimi-
nated. But for the time being, you're
not going to get any widow's benefits
(or your own retirement benefits for
that matter) because Social Security
planners don't think society owes you
any money until you retire or reach
age 66 -- when the earnings penalty
