Manatee Found Near
Gulfport Beach

This female manatee was found floating near Gulfport Beach
early on Tuesday. Katie Brill and Donna Szemer of the Florida
Fish and Wildlife took the sea cow to have a necropsy per-
The preliminary cause of death was natural causes accord-
ing to Donna Szemer of Florida Fish and Wildlife.

Council Agrees on
Intent to Hire O'Reilly
GULFPORT Interim City Manager
Jim O'Reilly will probably not be that
way for much longer. Last Tuesday the
Gulfport City Council unanimously
elected to amend the City Charter in
a way that would allow the Council
to, under special circumstances, waive
the residency requirement for the City
Manager. Interim City Attorney Tom
Minkoff suggested a minor wording
change to the amendment, but the
ordinance was otherwise passed
without challenge. The Council later
unanimously agreed on its intent to
hire and subsequently enter into a
contract with O'Reilly.

Gulfport Elementary
in "Desperate" Need
GULFPORT In a recent meeting,
Council member Michele King re-
ported that Gulfport Elementary is
experiencing a severe supply short-
age, but lacks the funding that would
adequately address it.
"I think it's a shame that Florida
Public Schools rely on bake sales" for
essential supplies, King said.
Among the school's greatest needs

International Walk to School Da
As part of International Walk to -
School Day, students from Gulfport
Montessori School walk up Gulfport
Boulevard to go to school on $4
Wednesday morning. Billed as part
of an effort to get kids moving and
promote healthy activity, International
Walk to School Day was expanded
in 2006 to include other countries
who wanted to participate in the
event. Gulfport Police Officer Reid,
Fire Inspector Frank Ventor and Fire
Chief Jim Marenkovic were on hand
to encourage the children and to
provide saftey along the route as
the children made their way from the -* "-*
Winn Dixie parking lot to the school. c

School Supplies,
from front page
are printer paper and ink cartridg-
es. "What kindof school doesn't have
ink cartridges and copy paper?" she
said, adding that the school's needs
are too immediate for the city to or-
ganize a fund raiser to help address
them. Those interested in donating
supplies can call the school's main
number at 893-2643.

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
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.

Marina Stay Limit
Likely to be Extended
GULFPORT The City Council
discussed the possibility of allowing
transient boaters to dock at designated
facilities within Gulfport Municipal
Marina for up to 14 days. The current
limit had been 72 hours. "I think it
would be good for general business
if they stayed around a little longer,"
said Council member Judy Ryerson,
citing attractions like Gulfport's
special events as a means of attracting
visitors.. The council also discussed
outfitting a designated portion of the
area with picnic tables for transient
boaters to use. The extended stay limit
is expected to enhance the marina's
income; transient rental fees for the
facility have amounted to less than
$30,000 over the last fiscal year.

Teen Council
Appointees Selected
GULFPORT- Due to an unexpectedly
high level of interest, the City

City to Enter Agreement
over EMS Services
GULFPORT The City Council
unanimously agreed to authorize
interim City Manager Jim O'Reilly
to enter into a one-year contract
with the Pinellas County Board
of County Commissioners. The
contract authorizes the Gulfport Fire
Department to provide Advanced
Life Support First Responder
Services. The county will provide
$382,934 in funding for the services,
which reflects a $192,570 decrease
in funding over the 2008-2009 fiscal

Blessings on the Bayou

By Leigh Clifton
(right to left) Chris Berger and Andy,Diana Travelute and Knightly,Reverend Candice Shultis,
Dave Smith (back) and wife Paula with Marley and Tanner, Reverend Lorraine Brock, and Bill
Kilgore with his dog Benji are among the blessed on the bayou last Sunday.
Over 50 people with their dogs, cats and birds stopped by Clam Bayou on
Sunday afternoon for the 8th Annual Blessing of the Animals, sponsored
by King of Peace Metropolitan Church of St. Petersburg. Officiated by the
Reverends Dr. Candace Shultis and Lorraine Brock, this was the first year
that the annual blessings were held in Clam Bayou.
"I bring my dog Andy every year to get blessed," said Chris Berger of South
Pasadena. "He's pretty old but still going strong and I think the blessings are
a big part of it. We're usually the last ones to get here to get blessed; I'm glad
we didn't miss it!"
People traveled from as far away as Tampa, Largo and Seminole to have their
animals touched in blessing by the Reverends Shultis and Brock, who have a
few lively stories of unusual blessings.
"I've blessed snakes, ferrets, even turtles," laughed Reverend Brock. "But
one of the funniest and strangest ever was out at Crescent Lake. We held the
blessings there one year and there were some young boys playing there who
saw us, wanted in on the action, but didn't have a pet. So they chased one of the
many wild roosters at the lake, caught one and brought him to us, squawking
very loudly in protest, to be blessed! It was hard to keep a straight face but we
did, but only after we made the boys promise to let the rooster go afterwards.
It was really f unl ny'
Every animal blessed received a certificate of the blessing and a St. Francis
of Assisi medal. St. Francis is the patron saint of animals.

Th Gb rchriis o o dnae

Valeeta Gibson, St. Pete: "I do
believe in donating to charities be-
cause so many people are supported
by people's gifts. My main charity is
the Shriners. They have a phenom-
enal burn unit and accept any child
18 and under free of charge for care,
regardless of their families' ability to
pay. They will pay to fly the injured
to their hospital and also pay for
lodging for the parents and families.
My whole family are Masons and
Shriners and I am an Eastern Star
member myself (the female equiva-
lent of the Mason). I donate to the
Eastern Star Home in Mt. Vernon,
Ohio. I know that if I donate to these
charities, I am assured of where the
money actually goes. I also give to
the Girl and Boys Scouts of America;
(I was a scout leader), as well as the
Salvation Army. Those are my pri-
mary charities."

Bernadette Thompson, Ruskin:
"We give to our church, who distrib-
utes money and goods among the
needy. We also have a little girl we've
been sponsoring for about ten years
in India. At Christmas, we've donated
to the Christian Prison Ministries for
the children of incarcerated parents.
We donate to different organizations
that help local people in our commu-
nity. Mostly, we donate to Christian
organizations because we feel we can
trust the people a little more. I have
rheumatoid arthritis and I've walked
the Arthritis Walk a few times, as
well as the MS Walk."

Laura and Ron Mudry, Gulfport:
"We donate to animal charities like
the SPCA because we have two res-
cue dogs ourselves and we're animal
lovers. We donate to Planned Parent-
hood because we feel it represents
another right that's been under con-
stant attack since the first Bush ad-
ministration. We believe in a woman's
right to choose. We donate to Human
Rights campaigns, especially gay
rights. We were both really pissed
off about Amendment 2, because we
both felt it was a human rights issue
and not a vote-driven issue."

Rob Zinn, visiting from Delaware: "I make financial offerings to the United
Way and I have offered my time to the Ronald McDonald House because they
help house and feed the families of very sick children. I have helped serve food
and cooked meals for the residents so that all they have to concentrate on is their
ill child. I rarely even meet the people but I think the Ronald McDonald House
does such an amazing service that it's an honor to volunteer there. My employer
also has a very liberal policy about giving back to the community and charities
and encourages us as employees to donate at least eight hours a month of our
time to do that. One of the things I've always wanted to do is take stuffed animals
and toys to the homeless and impoverished kids downtown at Christmas time;
some of those kids and families live on the street, are dirt poor, and have nothing.
To see the joy on their faces when someone gives them something is amazing.
But I definitely want to do more. Some of the people I work with have donated
over 200 hours this year alone."

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

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

In Search For Work? Beware of Scams

By Kate Bradshaw

It arrives amid the throes of what
seems like a drought: an email
responding to one of the dozens,
maybe hundreds, of resumes you've
been sending to potential employers.
"We have found your CV," it reads.
"...And consider that you meet all the
requirements of proposed position."
Finally, you may think. Then you
read on.
"Thejob of Transfer Manager includes
infrequent receipt of payments (via
your bank account)," it continues.
So much for your spam filter.
It would be laughable if times
weren't so tough.
With Florida's unemployment
rate at its highest in three decades,
a fruitless job search can be
disheartening enough for Pinellas
County's many eager job seekers.
Add phony job listings into the mix
and that disappointment can turn
into disaster for some.
Spotting fraudulent employment
ads can be tough, but there are a
few telltale signs that can save a lot
of trouble and money for those
looking for work, says Larry Krick,
Chief Investigator of the Pinellas
County Department of Consumer
"If it sounds too good to be true,
then it likely is," Krick says, citing
examples of ads for warehouse jobs
that started at $22 an hour.
If an employment agency is
guaranteeing placement within a
certain amount of time while charging
a hefty fee, he says, it's probably wise
to steer clear. In fact, he adds, there
is a risk any time you pay upfront
fees with an employment agency.
The Better Business Bureau lists one
such case on its Web site. It involved
U1 4 11 4 1 4 A 44 ;

was seeking to staff its headquarters
with 2,500 individuals, and required
all applicants to pay $24 upfront for
a background check. The company,
then, pocketed the sum.
While some job scams involve taking
your money and disappearing, others
use a phony job vacancy to get your
personal information, an offense that
fallsinto a categoryknown asphishing.
Any email that asks a recipient to
provide bank account information or
install malware (software designed
to damage your computer or steal
precious information) onto his or her
computer should go directly into one's
spam folder, and probably be reported
to the Better Business Bureau.
Krick says that the DCA has a few
active investigations into potential
job scams in Pinellas County, but
that the number hasn't risen in
direct proportion to the county's
unemployment rate he's received
a total of 17 complaints on job scams
this year, out of 2,000. This, however,
does not mean that incidences haven't
increased, he says; it just means that
job seekers aren't reporting them.
Although email is a common medium
for fraudulent employment ads, Krick
says that individuals need to be wary
of ads they see in print publications,
Internet classified and, most
especially, signs on the roadside.
Red flags include poor grammar,
misspelled words, lack of self-
identification, the requirement that
you visit an unfamiliar Web site and
the provision of an 800 number rather
than one with a local area code.
Most of all, Krick says that when
sifting through listings, a job hunter
needs to go with his or her gut.
If one is still not sure, he says,
individuals can check with the Better
Business Bureau.

ItStoroscoDe Guide

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You're
mature. You tolerate the difficult
people. You see their talents and
manage to find a positive way to
interact. They often will want to deal
only with you. It takes a lot of work
for you to do this, though. Take a
break from the toxic types. You may
not even realize how they affect you
until you get away.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21).
Those who usually praise you might
be less attentive than usual. It's an
opportunity to look within. Could this
be the result of some strange opinion
you've formed about yourself? A
change in the way you see yourself
results in a change in the way others
see you. Personal triumphs precede
public victories.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21).
You will be making new agreements
with the world at large. This may
not be a formal arrangement, but
rather, an unspoken exchange
you've allowed. You'll likely decide
that yesterday's "contract" was
too limiting and didn't allow you
to stretch your creativity to your
highest ability. This is a new era.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19).
One of your close genuine friends
will reach out to you in some way.
You can feel this before it happens.
You are connected at a deep level,
working through a joint karma.
Thursday brings new faces into your
world. Things would be much easier
were you not so attractive, but
where's the fun in that?
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). A
relative's financial advice proves
right. You have a little spending
money, and it will burn a hole in your
pocket Wednesday and Thursday.
Whatever deal you are offered, use
that charm you're known for as
you ask for a better one. You'll also
be compelled to treat a friend to
something he or she likes.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). If
you're listening, you will receive

an important message. Instead
of texting, e-mailing and the
like, arrange in-person meetings
where possible and have good old-
fashioned phone conversations. You
need to hear the breaths between
the sentences, the implied laughter.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). It's
easy to be loving and cheerful when
you're in a good mood. To be just
as sweet when you don't feel like it
takes maturity. You'll be bright and
charming in a myriad of situations
this week, and sometimes this takes
a lot of work -- no one is the wiser.
You'll be rewarded for the effort to
always be your best.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). If it
seems that you are on the outside
looking in for some of this week,
take it as an extremely auspicious
omen. It is necessary to get out of
a situation in order to see what is
needed to make things better. Once
you understand the dynamics from
an objective viewpoint, you'll return
to the action and fit right in.
GEMINI (N1.iy 21-June 21). You've
cast yourself in the role of taking
care of business -- yours and many
other people's. There are so many
things to juggle in that endeavor
that it's inevitable you'll drop some
balls. When you do, it's no big deal.
Pick up and keep going. Before you
know it, this act becomes like second
nature to you.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). When
moviemakers want to show people
looking and acting "cool," they often
do it in slow motion. There's a reason.
"Cool" means not rushing around.
Remember this as you schedule your
week. Avoid the common problem of
being a few minutes behind schedule
by allowing yourself more transition
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Everything
was going along smoothly when
you had to up and question it all:
your career, where you live, your

relationshipsO Be bold and fear not.
Your passion for life has gotten you
this far, and it's not going anywhere.
You'll either reaffirm your direction
or make some very slight adjustment
to the plan.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You
might be compelled to work at
being nice to look at, and there
are cost-effective opportunities to
spiff up your image this week. The
paradox is that working too hard at
being attractive is the antithesis of
attractive. Devote some thought to
your appearance, and then let it go.
Nonchalance is lovely, too.
This Week's Birthdays: You
can assume the best will happen
this year because when you adopt
that assumption, it absolutely will.
You'll get used to people being
nice, saying "yes" and accepting
and admiring you. A fantastic new
friend comes to you this month.
Finances improve with the help of a
forward-thinking adviser. December
brings a wonderful twist of fate to
your personal life. There's a happy
resolution to an age-old conflict in
January. And in April, one of your
whims leads to a big change.

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 l,
of your policy
back the first i
year. Every
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 taking the money

Jeff DeNight co-owns Bentley-DeNight Insurance Services, a full service,
independent, Trusted Choice agency, and Premier Choice Rebate Flood
Insurance, a flood insurance agency that shares its commissions with its

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. rt
does that ..-Erf 1 2I

I.L"w mmean
that Premier Choice
Flood Insurance policies cost
more than other flood insurance
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
Paid Advertisement-

agencies that write their policies.
Jeff and his agency are sharing that
commission with their customers.
Jeff says Premier
Choice can afford
c n &/0 to share its
commission with
its customers
since all the owners are hands-
on and they run a lean, efficient
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.

Pre SU- C Pricin


In the big picture, the world pic-
ture, it's not really a big issue. In
fact, right now, we don't know if
there is an issue at all. I'm referring
to Baywalk, that shopping and enter-
tainment center in downtown St. Pete
that seems to draw more controversy
than business. I thought I'd weigh-in
since everyone else seems to be.
St. Pete council decided not to priva-
tize the sidewalks which would have
kept those irritating regular demon-
strators-picketers and probably pan-
handlers and homeless off the perim-
eter of the complex. Anyway, that's
not going to happen and predictions
are that Baywalk, into which taxpay-
ers have poured millions in support,
will fold.
We don't know whether that will
happen or not. Some people feel the
problem has not been the picketers,
but the misbehavior of teen-age and
older, hanger-outers. Whichever,
Baywalk seems to have attracted a
crowd the wrong crowd. I've been
there a few times and nothing bad
happened, but we did have to dodge
picketers, ignore panhandlers, and
generally be wary, particularly in
the evening. Then again, I'm wary of
shopping anyway in the evening.
Is all of this a First Amendment is-
sue? Is taking away what was once
a public sidewalk and making it
private really taking away a First
Amendment right? That's a real
stretch. A better question might be
whether public monies should be so
involved with private enterprise that
everything becomes a public issue.
Be careful who you go to bed with.
And, maybe there's another question:
why should we have to be so wary

and watchful about shopping in the
evening at all?
Personally, while I respect some-
one's right to picket, protest, com-
plain or whatever, I have an equal
right not to be harassed. Most of the
protesters were not protesting activi-
ties at Baywalk. They're just protest-
ing where people are gathering. So,
don't block me going in and out of
stores and don't get in my face about
anything I don't want to talk about
or deal with.
I also have a right not to be some
place and that includes Baywalk
and St. Petersburg in general. If the
sidewalks are over-run by protest-
ers and panhandlers, if the homeless
urinate and defecate in the streets,
(not the rap on Baywalk), who wants
to go there for anything? And, if law
abiding citizens feel that they have
to have body guards to move freely
around the city, that's not the fault
of those citizens, but society and spe-
cifically government.
And, don't try to sell me that bit
about some people not having any-
thing else to do, are poor, homeless,
drugged up (and, hence it is not their
fault), or whatever. If you come out in
public behave decently, period.
As for St. Petersburg itself, it's a
pretty nice town. I like its theatres,
its parks and waterfront, its muse-
ums, and restaurants. I also like the
new developments and apartments
and condos. Overall, it has ambiance.
It does have its seamy side and a
mid-town crime problem and there-
fore all-town crime problem (think
drugs and unchecked, if not tolerat-
ed, criminal gangs). The question is
which side will prevail.

Jewish Genealogical
Society to Meet
The Jewish Genealogical Society of

speaking on DNA and Genealogy. A
social with refreshments and library
access begins at 1:30 p.m. and the
featured program starts at 2 p.m.
This overview will explain how
DNA relates to genealogy, what
kinds of DNA tests are available,

Stetson University Shines!

By Kurt Zuelsdorf
On Harvest full moon morning when most students are still in bed from a
night fueled by the gravitational pull of the stars or just the excitement of col-
lege night life, members of Stetson University's Environmental & Maritime
Law Societies drifted their kayaks on the incoming tide through the red man-
grove channels and into the upper creeks of Clam Bayou Nature Park. They
didn't mind the "one size fits all" gloves, the sticky gunk, or the enormous
amount of debris they were there to pick up: 19 bags filled with plastic recy-
clable bottles, glass, bags and Styrofoam. One old crab trap and a tub of aged
chitlins rounded out the catch of the day.
The upper creeks of this nature park have always been and continue to be a
catch basin for storm water runoff from the surrounding cities. Through con-
tinuing efforts like this from Stetson we'll continue to see a rebound in the
bird nesting activity here. During the clean up they discovered three new bird
nests the size and shape of a coffee cup built with dead twigs and old spider
webs a true testament to natures timeless art of recycling and the rewards
of past clean ups!
The only thing shining brighter on this full harvest moon was the smiles of
Stetson students as they wrapped up their day on the bayou. Keep smiling,
Stetson...our waterways have a much brighter future because of you!

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
at Your Feet. Our Father (Say 3 Times). Hail
Mary (Say 3 Times). Glory Be (Say 3 Times).
