99 and Holding!
By Cathy Salustri
Gulfport celebrated its 99th birthday
Saturday with cake, inflatable slides, q
and the traditional mullet toss.
The birthday celebration, held on
the grounds of the city's historical
museum, drew crowds eager to
help the city celebrate. The CERT
(Community Emergency Response
Team) helped out at the event, as
did many other volunteers. Historian
Lynne Brown had copies of her book,
Gulfport: A Definitive History, on
hand at the museum.

Austin Aquino, 3, flies like Superman down -
the bouncy slide at the birthday bash last
Saturday.


Beach Agreement
With County Law
Enforcement,
First Responders
ST PETE BEACH City
Commission voted to allow
the mayor and city manager
to sign the Pinellas County
First Responder Agreement.
The contract will allow the
City of St. Pete Beach to
continue providing emergency
medical service within the
city under the authority of
Pinellas County from Oct. 1,
2009 and Sept. 30, 2010. The
Commission also authorized
an agreement and sign a
memorandumofunderstanding
between the City of St. Pete
Beach and Pinellas County
law enforcement bodies to
demonstrate understanding of
protocols involved in dealing
with people taken into custody
under the Baker Act. This
agreement is intended to
provide for safe and secure
transportation of "Baker
Acted" individuals.


City Tackles Foreclosure Maintenance
ST PETE BEACH The recession has left a number of
highly visible reminders of its wrath. Foreclosed and
abandoned properties are becoming an unsightly problem
for the city at a time when falling home values have al-
ready caused the city to see a drop in its revenue.
"We're seeing more of this," said Commissioner Christo-
pher Leonard. "It's frustrating." To combat this, the city
approved the first reading of an ordinance that would
develop regulations for the maintenance of foreclosed
properties as well as maintained a list of of registered
foreclosures containing contact information of the parties
responsible for their upkeep.

Beach to Install Baby Turtle
Proof Streetlights
ST PETE BEACH One of the biggest problems for sea
turtle hatchlings is that once they emerge from the nest it
is extremely easy for them to get disoriented and head the
wrong way that is, anywhere but the sea. They hatch
at night, and are supposed to scamper into the surf, but
when they hatch on beaches that have nearby sources of
artificial light streetlights, house lights, and the like -
they often head in the wrong direction.
To help prevent this, the City of St. Pete Beach has se-
cured a $25,000 reimbursable grant from Pinellas County
that will fund the replacement of 55 streetlights that line
Pass-a-Grille Way. The project is expected to cost $24,383
and will involve the installation of fixtures that will not
shine as much light onto the beach.

Gulfport Garden &A
^N & Bird Club
Theo Janea and Phyllis Swift gave
a very interesting and informative
program last week on the basics of
creating a Bonsai. We learned that
Bonsai can be grown from many
common trees and bushes and there
were lovely examples on display.
The program next month on
November 12 will be held at 1620
Park Street N. at 1 p.m. It will be
hosted by Eric Anderson who will
discuss sacred lands preservation
and education. Further information
will be in next week's Gabber.

Erik Ash, Seminole: "I feel that
he was awarded it too soon. All of
the other Presidents before him
have made the same promises to
the country that he has, but I think
he may have gotten it because he's
the first black president. Personally
I like him and I hope he can fulfill
those promises, but again I think it
was too soon to give him an award
for promises he hasn't yet fulfilled. I
think he's worthy of the honor; I just
would like to see him make more
progress because there haven't been
many changes that I've seen so far.
He deserves the nomination, but
I think he needs to start showing
more forcefulness. This idea of bend-
ing to the Republicans in an effort to
work together isn't working for him
at all. They seem to want to stop him
and his policies. He will have to be
more forceful if he wants those poh-
cies to be implemented. If he can get
some things done, then he will have
earned the Nobel Prize."


Christa Fairbrother, Gulfport:
"I thought it was very interesting.
I would say they awarded the prize
based on his promises of hope for a
more positive future, rather than
solely his accomplishments so far.
The lead story on NPR the other day
was him winning the Nobel; the next
story was about Obama meeting with
his advisors about the war in Afghan-
istan. Three presidents have been
awarded the Nobel, but Obama is the
first to be actively engaged in a war
while accepting an award for Peace. I
think that affects people's perception
of the award, especially because the
Nobel is associated with Peace. I was
very surprised when they announced
him as the winner; I thought it was
a bit premature. I mean, there are a
lot more people who are Peace activ-
ists and do it in adverse conditions.
I actually signed an online petition
for Pete Seeger as a nominee. He has
been an activist for Peace for a long
time and influenced a lot of people."


Christina Samuels, St. Pete:
"President Obama has a solid char-
acter and I think he deserved the
Nobel. He's put himself out there,
trying to do what he set out to do, as
President and as a man who truly
cares. I think it's ridiculous that his
opponents are so incredibly arrogant
to jump all over him about the most
inane things. The time he swatted at
that fly, they branded him a thug and
nature-hater. How crazy! It's just
people being stupid. They could give
him a stick of gum and they would
wonder why it wasn't a jawbreaker.
He wasn't expecting the prize, he
didn't ask for it. If the Noble Com-
mittee thinks he's worthy then I do
too. They design the criteria and I re-
spect that and him."

Mario Ferfoglia, St. Pete: "I was very surprised and I wasn't expecting it. I
don't know exactly why he won it. It might be because as a person, he can bring
people together in this country. As a President, he hasn't seemed to do that much
yet, especially for the economy that I can see."

Midtown Through Our Eyes


Photo by Kramon Lonc
Kramon Long, a fifth-grader at Melrose Elementary, took this photo as part of a three-wee
summer journalism camp. The camp included students from Melrose Elementary and Joh
Hopkins Middle School. Eckerd College sponsored the camp. The students' body of wor
culminated with a show at the Studio@620 and in Midtown Magazine, a student-publishe
newspaper showcasing the journalistic and photographic efforts of the students.

Nyleria Lancaster, 8, looks at "Strong Smile," taken by Samuel Robinson at
the closing night of Midtown Through Our Eyes Friday. Midtown Through
Our Eyes showcased works of Melrose Elementary and John Hopkins Middle
School students who participated in a three-week summer camp for aspiring
journalists.
Students took photographs of and wrote feature articles about Midtown,
ultimately creating Midtown Magazine, a collection of their work. Last week
Studio@620 donated exhibit space and invited the community to browse
the student's work. Midtown restaurants, including Atwater's, Lorene's,
and Greene's, offered free samples of their food to guests. Students armed
themselves with cameras and steno pads to document the event, and teachers
answered questions about the program.
For more information about Midtown Magazine or the program, call either
Melrose Elementary at 893-2175 or John Hopkins Middle at 893-2400.

Seeking Tips on
Dog Nappers
Dear Editor: Approximately two
months ago someone wandered down
24th Avenue between 51st and York
and plucked two young pit bull type
dogs from the rear of their homes.
It may have been two different
incidents. In one case, the culprit
was seen.
Obviously these were loved,
innocent animals or they would not
have submitted so easily. I also know
this to be true of my neighbor's dog
from personal observation who could
not have been more tenderly cared
for. These dogs were not loose, but
tied and out of easy sight enjoying
the sheltered out door air.
Gulfport is full of animal lovers who
I'm sure do not want to contemplate
the fate of these innocents. I please
with you to report any knowledge you
might have that would help to find
them and stop the perpetrators. It's
not too late. And think for a minute,
ik the next victim could be yours.
In Finally, even if you are not an
rk animal lover, do you really want to
!d see this sort of activity invading our
community?
Thelma Riley

SPCA Pet of the Week
Dexter is a gorgeous brown Retriever mix. He
gets along great with everyone at SPCA and is
full of energy. Dexter loves to run and a little
more training would help to round him off. He re-
ally doesn't want to go anywhere, just play. With
his retriever sense he loves to explore and see
what's on the other side of the fence. He would do
best in a fenced yard. Dexter is a wonderful pick
for the active family. He is about 2 years old, and
a very happy, friendly fellow. Visit him today at
SPCA Tampa Bay, 9099 130 Avenue N. in Largo,
or call 727-586-3591.

Starting A New Band Looking For Muscians

I am starting a band which will play music from the 1920's co today. Every song will be modified to give it a mod-
ern sound. The format selection will be strict in that each song will be appropriate for any age venue, particularly
over 35. All music will be danceable and a party favorite.
I am looking for people who may have played a musical instrument and always wanted to be in a band but couldn't
because they chose career, family and responsibility.


This person might now be in a position to
pursue this long delayed dream. You don't have
to be a great musician. We can grow together.
The chemistry of the group is most important. I
anticipate that we would remain a hobby band
for 6 to 12 months depending on how quickly
we can create a four hour program. When we
are ready we will begin paid bookings.
I am looking for the following:
Lead guitar
Rhythm guitar
Bass guitar
Keyboard player
Drummer
(Brass section including)
Coronet, Slide Trombone, Saxophone
Violin Player(s)
I need a couple of the musicians to be able to
sing back up. It would be great to have one or
more females who play an instrument and sing
or just sing. Most of our music will include lots
of vocal backup and featuring each member.
The objective of this band is to have fun and
create a terrific musical experience for the audi-
ence.

Requirements to join the band are:
Must be over 40 years old
and clean cut.
Must be financially settled,
dependable with reliable transportation
Must have a good sense of humor


You may be a social drinker
Absolutely no drugs or smoking

This band is "Top Secret" until our first "Gig."
(Except to friends and family)
All band members must leave their egos at the door.

Here is the bad part:
I will be the lead singer and manager of the
band. I will do the initial interviewing and selec-
tion of band members. Once we are settled as a
group we can vote members in. I am easy going
and always open to suggestion but I feel there
must be some structure to the group.

Here is the good part:
I will finance much of the equipment such
as mixer, amps, mikes and speakers. You will
need to bring your instrument and any equip-
ment associated with your instrument such as
tuners, phasers, chords, etc. I will manage the
equipment of the band in a way that, if someone
leaves, the rest of the band won't suffer.
I have been a singer for many years on stage
and in bands but spent 30 years as a Manager
for large corporations. At the end of this career,
I can finally realize my dream of working with
some fun and dedicated people in, what will soon
become the best band in the area. I am look-
ing for normal, talented people with that same
dream.


I look forward to your call, Fred Walker

Gulfport Beach September 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
waste of warm-blooded animals, including humans.
The City of Gulfport currently tests for both types of bac-
teria. Test results will help classify Gulfport Harbor as
"good", "moderate", or "poor". Enterococcus of less than 35
parts per 100 milliliter and fecal coliform of less than 199
per 100 milliliter of saltwater indicate good water qual-
ity. For more information, contact the City of Gulfport at
893-1000.

Gulfport's Halloween

Decorations Contest

Application Form


Date


By Mary Marsh

Opening Glow
Members of The Art Guild of
Treasure Island have given us
a bright new opening show on
the walls of the Treasure Island
Community Center through
November 5th. Today I introduce
the works of Alieda Mehalko,
Patricia McEntire and Daniel
Wright, saving those of Luba
Robinson and Donald Silvestri for
next time.
Alieda Mehalko treats the
viewer to beautifully executed
watercolors, showing the influence
of her teacher and gifted artist,
the late Ed Bookmyer. Effective
composition, strong value and color
control make "St. Augustine Light"
a great example of her work. The
viewer's eye is drawn down the
path to the noble lighthouse.
Guildpresident, PatriciaMcEntire,
offers us her joyful paintings, both
still life and landscapes, some
realistic, some whimsical. In her
colorful mixed media "Poppies
In the Garden", Pat has created
an inviting, tranquil scene. Set
against soft, distant mountains is
an old country house surrounded by
shade trees with a profusion of red
flowers in the open foreground.
A New York native, Daniel
Wright, 'paints' in charcoal. His
true understanding of values and
his strong drawing skills work
together to create not sketches,
but sophisticated portraits. In
"Madeline Peyroux" Daniel uses
the graceful position of her body
to mimic the lines of the chair,
creating flowing movement in his
composition.
Enjoy this exhibit at the Center
located on 106th Avenue just east
of Gulf Blvd. Call the Recreation
Center at 547-4575 for information
about hours.

Something' oH my mind
SBy Bill Northrop B_Northrop@theGabber.com

Driving Me Mad


F lorida driving is like the
weather: everyone talks about
it, but no one does anything
about it.
That came to mind a couple of weeks
ago when, on one Sunday in the Tam-
pa Bay area there were 50 accidents
involving 131 vehicles and 121 in-
juries. That there were no fatalities
was extraordinary news. Cause of
the wrecks was blamed on the rain
as if there was a sudden blanket of
ice and snow on the roads. The fact
is that the accidents were caused by
drivers. We all know that and as ob-
served in the lead paragraph, every-
one talks about it.
At one time, as a new arrival in
Florida, I wrote out a list of 10 things
Florida drivers do that could cause
accidents. Now, I can only recall
seven. It might be age, but it's prob-
ably that I've gotten so accepting of
the other three that they no longer
register. Maybe I'm guilty of them,
too. Anyway, my list includes: not us-
ing turn signals, following too close-
ly and not allowing anyone to have
any space between vehicles, chang-
ing lanes abruptly including moving
from an outside lane to an inside lane
to make a turn, and, of course, run-
ning red lights. There's a reason our


car insurance rates are some of the
highest in the nation.
I've driven in a lot of major cities
including New York. They move a lot
of people very quickly there and they
are impatient to say the least not to
mention often very vocal. But, some-
how, they seem to be better drivers.
Maybe it's because they don't all
think they are NASCAR drivers.
I don't know how many die a year on
Florida highways, but it's probably a
couple thousand while 50 times that
many are injured. Talk about add-
ing to health care costs. Nationally,
we kill 37,000 and injure 2 million,
but we applaud it because it's less
than it has been. We've killed more
on the highways than all the wars
combined.
Quoting statistics is impersonal.
Anyone who has been involved in an
accident, however, knows it's a trau-
matic event. As a reporter, I covered
many fatal accidents witnessing the
gory results and sometimes inter-
viewing survivors and relatives of
the dead. It was neither fun nor im-
personal.
The question, of course, is what to
do about it? I'm not sure I have the
answers, but here are a few sugges-
tions.


Revive the aerial reconnaissance
patrols they once had (if they have
them now, they aren't noticeable
or effective). It might help catching
the in and outers on the major high-
ways.
Revamp the driver education pro-
grams including the testing. In other
words, make the tests more difficult
reflecting the seriousness of the sub-
ject.
Use commercial aviation-like simu-
lators to create realistic emergency
driving conditions and techniques.
Do use cameras at red lights.
Keep the issue in front of the pub-
lic with annual state reports that
include the number of dead and in-
jured, cost to drivers and insurers,
cause of accidents, and identification
of "hot spots".
E-mail me your suggestions.

"The hallmark of Gulfport events is that they give back to the community,"
Rosso said. In keeping with that idea, the Gulfport Merchant's Association
presented the Recreation Center with a check for $1,000. Rosso also presented
the Recreation Center with the large stuffed Gecko used every year during the

WellINEWS


By Scott Lafee
Coming Clean
Modern medical science is all about
asking deep, probing, revealing
questions. We might not have
penicillin today if Dr. Florey hadn't
asked, "What's this damn mold on my
coat?" Or something to that effect.
Some questions of health and
hygiene, however, are better left
unasked. And yet, in the spirit of full
disclosure (figuratively speaking),
we present the results of a 20,000-
person AOL poll seeking to answer
the query: How dirty is the average
American?
Question 1: How often do you wash
or change your bedsheets?
Forty percent said once a week; 34
percent said every two weeks; 16
percent once a month; and 10 percent
less than once a month.
Question 2: Do you re-wear
underwear before washing?
Seventy-eight percent said never; 17
percent said once or twice; 4 percent
said three to four times; and 1 percent
said they wear their underwear more
than five times before washing it.


Question 3: How often do you brush
your teeth?
Twelve percent said more than
twice a day; 41 percent said twice a
day; 42 percent said at least once a
day; and 5 percent said often a day
goes by without brushing at all.
If you fall into any of the last
categories for any of these questions,
you should know that your mother is
very, very unhappy with you. We're
not too thrilled either.
GET ME THAT. STAT!
Giving critically ill hospital
patients a daily bath with a mild,
soapy, antibacterial solution used
by surgeons to "scrub in" before an
operation reduced by as much as
73 percent the number of patients
who develop potentially deadly
bloodstream infections, according to
a study at Johns Hopkins Hospital
and five other institutions.

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


guess you could say my motto
is'been there, done that'," says
.LKeith 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
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 15 October 21, 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.

Sve ayday Cheap$kate
By Mary Hunt


Financially Immature
Boyfriend Is All Wet
Dear Mary: My boyfriend and I
want to get married one day. How-
ever, I've come to the realization
that he doesn't care about his credit.
He has student loans, medical bills,
utility bills and even letters from
lawyers about bounced checks. I
want to help him get it all straight-
ened out, but I don't know where to
start. He tells me that his bills won't
affect me when we get married, but
I am not so sure. Can you lead me in
the right direction? -- Kim, e-mail
Dear Kim: I'm glad you are ask-
ing these questions now, while you
still have options. Your boyfriend is
wrong. Of course his credit would af-
fect you -- and in a big way -- should
the two of you marry. Have you seen


his credit report? How he handles
his financial affairs affects his credit
score, and I bet he has a real doozy.
If you buy a house after you are mar-
ried, the lender will average your
two credit scores to see whether you
qualify and at what interest rate.
His poor credit will affect his ability
to get a cell phone plan, buy a car,
get auto insurance and even qualify
for a job.
More than that, I hope you will con-
sider what his financial immaturity
and lack of personal responsibility
mean about his character. You can-
not change him, no matter how hard
you try to straighten out his money
problems. Only he can effect real
change. Unless that change comes
from the inside out, it will not be
authentic or lasting. I am concerned
that he does not share your basic


core values, nor you his. I hope you
see this as a clear warning sign.
Dear Mary: I am about to receive
$20,000 in two payments as a retire-
ment incentive. I am almost 63 and
still have a mortgage; we pay extra
on the principal every month. I want
to pay down the mortgage with this
money, but the bank tells me we will
have to pay a hefty fee to do that.
Should I pay the fee, or is there an-
other way to pay down the principal
on our mortgage? -- Shirley M., e-
mail
Dear Shirley: I am assuming from
what you say that your mortgage
is subject to a prepayment penalty
clause. That means that if you were
to prepay any portion of the princi-
pal ahead of your payment schedule,
you would be charged a penalty be-
cause that would deprive your lend-
er of future interest. The terms and
conditions of that penalty fee are
spelled out in your mortgage docu-
ment. I cannot advise you because I
do not know the penalty fee struc-
ture. I suggest that you familiarize
yourself with the terms to which
you agreed and then get some wise
counsel from an accountant or your
tax preparer to weigh the pros and
cons of paying the penalty fee now or
later. In the future, never enter into
a mortgage agreement that contains
a prepayment penalty clause.

Examples of Rare
Social Security
Cutbacks
In the almost 75-year history of the
Social Security program, I can cite
hundreds of instances where new So-
cial Security benefits were added or
where existing benefits were expand-
ed. But I can think of only a half-doz-
en times when benefits were actually
cut. The questions in today's column
highlight three of those cutbacks.
Q: My mother recently died. She
was 78 years old and was getting
widow's benefits on my father's So-
cial Security record. When he died
many years ago, we got a $255 burial
benefit from Social Security. But this
time there was nothing. Did the law
change? Why can't we get the burial
benefit for my mom?
A: The miserly $255 death benefit
is payable only on the Social Secu-
rity accounts of people who have
what the government calls "insured
status." And being insured for Social
Security purposes means that the

deceased had at least 40 "quarters
of coverage." Most people that work
and pay taxes earn a maximum of
four quarters per year. So, a person
has to work at least 10 years to get 40
quarters and thus be insured.
You said your mom was getting wid-
ow's benefits on your father's Social
Security record. That usually means
she didn't work long enough on her
own Social Security account to be in-
sured.
However, even if she had her 40
quarters but was getting a widow's
benefit because it paid a higher rate
than would have been due on her
own Social Security account, the
death benefit would still not be pay-
able because of one of those cutbacks
I mentioned at the beginning of this
column.
The original Social Security law
stipulated that the death benefit
would be paid on every account as
long as the deceased was insured.
The death benefit was paid to a sur-
viving spouse, to a child, or many
times directly to a funeral home. But
awhile back, in an attempt to save
a few nickels for the Social Security

trust funds, Congress changed the
law to say that (with only a few ex-
ceptions) the $255 death benefit can
only be paid to a widow (or widower)
who was living with the deceased at
the time of death.
Even if your mom was insured for
Social Security purposes, there is no
one eligible for the death benefit on
her Social Security account because
your father predeceased her.
Q: My father recently died. I have a
younger brother who is 16 years old
and still lives at home with my mom.
Will he get any of dad's Social Secu-
rity? If so, how much will he get and
for how long? How about mom? She
is 48 years old.
A: Your brother will get a monthly
survivor's benefit on your dad's So-
cial Security record until he turns 18
years old. Social Security used to pay
what were called "student's benefits"
until age 22 as long as the young per-
son was enrolled full time in college.
But another one of those cutbacks
eliminated college student's benefits.
How much your brother will get de-
pends entirely on your dad's income
history. Essentially, the more mon-
ey your dad made, the higher your
brother's benefit will be. Your broth-
er is due 75 percent of whatever your
father's Social Security benefit would
have been. If your dad made average
wages, your brother probably will get
about $1,000 per month.
Your mom won't be due any monthly
widow's benefits on your dad's Social
Security record until she turns 60.
For many years, Social Security paid
monthly benefits to young widowed
mothers until their youngest child
turned 18 years old, but another of
those rare Social Security cutbacks
impacts young widows. Congress
changed the law to say that they
could collect Social Security benefits
only until their youngest child turns
16.
Because your brother is already 16,
your mom will just have to wait an-
other 12 years (until she's 60) before
she can get any widow's benefits from
Social Security.

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 1
of your policy a
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

This rebate can add up to thousands

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
Paid Advertisement-


agencies that write their policies.
Jeff and his agency are sharing that
commission with their customers.
Jeff says Premier
Choice can afford
IS 0 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.

Sustainable Livii
By Shawn Dell Joyce

Freecycling
Yard sales are great for bargains,
but they also are great for the fact
that we are keeping usable things
out of our landfills. Each of us
produces 1.2 tons of garbage per
year, but that figure doesn't include
the usable goods -- such as old
furniture, clothes and books -- that
also wind up in the waste stream.
Tighter belts mean people are more
reluctant to throw usable goods away
and more likely to fix something
broken or exchange it with a friend.
More and more people are engaging
in the time-honored tradition of
"freecycling." This means giving
usable goods to someone else for free
instead of wasting it.
Groups of parents often exchange
children's clothes in "clothing swap
parties," at which you bring old
clothes and arrange them by size.
Ideally, you leave with new-to-
you clothes and give away all the
outgrown ones.
Many churches and community
groups also have hosted clothing
swap parties and often donate the
leftover clothes to migrant workers
and clothing collection boxes.
Artist groups often host swap meets
at which pricey art supplies are


traded, as well as equipment and
even art. I even have been to a cookie
swap, at which all the participants
baked several dozen holiday cookies
and then swapped them for more
variety.
The economic downturn has been
a boon for used-clothing stores
and secondhand boutiques. A trip
to any local Goodwill or Salvation
Army store will reveal well-heeled
shoppers rubbing elbows with the
usual suspects.
Bigger items, such as used
appliances, are not so easy to find
or sell. If you can't find it in the
classified section, consider online
posting services, such as Freecycle
and Craigslist. Freecycle is an
e-mail list organized by city that
has networks around the world.
The only rule is that the item must
be free, so there is no cost to list or
receive a usable item. Freecycle is
a great place to post that old chair,
and everyone who is a member of
the local network will receive your
e-mail address and photo of that old
chair.
Craigslist is a small empire boasting
everything from help wanted to
romance classified. You probably
will find what you are looking for

on Craigslist, but it will not be
free unless you find it in the "free"
category.
Some communities have stores that
sell usable merchandise redirected
from the waste stream. Habitat for
Humanity has a series of "ReStores"
around the country, at which you
can donate or purchase leftover and
deconstructed building materials.
Some municipalities offer programs
through solid-waste programs, such
as the Hudson Valley Materials
Exchange in New Paltz, N.Y.
This nonprofit organization has
redirected more than 20 tons of
usable materials from the waste
stream over the 10-plus years of its
existence. This program relies on
public donations, so the inventory
changes weekly.
By freecycling usable goods, we
are increasing the life spans of
merchandise, reducing waste and
generating economic impact by
freeing up money that could be
better spent elsewhere. We also
create more positive interactions
between friends and neighbors.

A Greener View

By Jeff Rugg


Fall Garden Tips for
Southern Gardens
I know that for many of you, the
weekends of the fall season are taken
up with kid's soccer games or foot-
ball or other activities that don't al-
low you to even think of your land-
scape, but this is a great time of year
to work outside. Remember to take
some photos or video of the landscape
in the fall. You can see how you like
it and what to change when the gar-
den catalogs arrive in the winter.
BULBS, PERENNIALS,
ANNUALS
As the cool weather arrives, you can
divide summer flowering bulbs like
caladiums, cannas, dahlias, elephant
ear and gladiolus. Or just leave them
in place and cover with several inch-
es of mulch. This is the time of year
to plant agapanthus, amaryllis, calla
and elephant ear bulbs.
Many perennials can be divided and
replanted as they go dormant. To
ease the transplant shock, just dig
out half the plant. Add organic mat-
ter where the plant was removed.
Move or give away the extra plants.
It is easier to see where they should
go now compared to the spring when
everything starts growing.
Cool weather may mean switching
out the flower bed. Cool season an-
nuals that can give color all winter
include carnation, foxglove, pansies,
petunias and snapdragons.


COMPOST PILE
Don't be one of those people who
spends money to send leaves to the
landfill's compost site in the fall, and
then wastes more money to buy or-
ganic matter from the store to use in
the landscape in the spring.
Remove any dead garden plants, an-
nuals and the tops of perennials. Add
them to the compost pile.
LAWN
Keep mowing warm-season grass
as long as they remain green. Many
winter weeds sprout in the fall, so ap-
ply pre-emergent herbicides. Make
sure to adjust the irrigation system
as cooler weather means the grass
and flower beds don't need as much
water as they did in the summer. The
last fertilization of the year can be
applied to many lawn grass types.
PRUNING
Wait to prune spring blooming trees
and shrubs because they already
have their flower buds now. Pruning
them now will cut off next spring's
flowers. Summer and fall blooming
plants can be pruned. Pruned ever-
green hedges will keep their shape
all winter.
You can cut out any dead wood and
a few branches that may be growing
out of bounds or across the middle of
the plant, at anytime.
TREES, SHRUBS
Plant container or balled and bur-
lapped trees and shrubs when you

can find them in the nursery. Some
will be on sale for good prices at this
time of year, as nurseries clear out
stock in anticipation of more plants
next spring.
Small twigs falling off trees may
mean they have twig girdlers, which
are beetles that lay eggs in the part
of the branch that falls off. Cleaning
up and removing the branches helps
get rid of the beetle.
VEGETABLE GARDEN
Many vegetable crops can be plant-
ed during the fall. As northern gar-
deners try to salvage green toma-
toes from the frost, Southerners are
planting tomatoes for a winter crop.
Hot southern areas have better veg-
etable gardens in the fall, winter and
spring. Strawberries can be planted
in beds or containers.
WATER GARDEN
As the leaves on the water plants
turn yellow, remove them back to the
crown. Remove any debris that falls
into the pond by using an automat-
ic skimmer or netting. This organic
matter decays on the bottom where it
releases nutrients that promote the
growth of algae in the spring.
Monitor the pond water tempera-
ture, and stop feeding the fish and
fertilizing plants if it drops below 45
degrees.
WILDLIFE
Songbirds, hummingbirds, hawks
and other birds have already begun
their fall migration, so get out to the
forest preserves and do some bird
watching. Put up hummingbird feed-
ers and you may get some of the de-
lightful floating jewels. Some might
even stay for the winter. Installing
water and feeders now helps set up
the local bird's winter-feeding hab-
its. Having bird activity in your yard
may attract some migrant birds that
might not otherwise come.

Kreative Kidz Kreate Kolorful Kaos


By Leigh Clifton
Sarah Gerard (front of car) Victoria Greco, Brooke Blassingame, Grace Paxon, Dominique
Grec and Tiffany Paxson, tumblers with the Bayside Gymnastics Club help paint the art car
at the Kreative Kidz Project last Saturday on 49th St. The event was sponsored by City of
Imagination.

The kids were covered in paint splotches, with dripping paint brushes in
hand as the members of the Bayside Gymnastics Club painted an "art car" at
Anderson Lumber on 49th St. last Saturday morning as part of the Kreative
Kidz project, sponsored by City of Imagination. The project, part of the 49 days
of Creative and Artistic Programming on 49th Street, was held to help expose
children to the many local outlets of artistic creativity. And of course to get
(legitimately) messy with paint...
Along with the car painting, the tree weaving that kids had started at the
Tangerine Blues Fest two weeks ago was continued; tall stretched plastic
fencing stretched on wood frames leaned against the wall of the lumber yard,
with festive multi-colored rags strewn about, ready to be woven together.
Another wall was designated as a graffiti wall and was happily tagged with
spray paint and paint brushes of many colors. Poet Nancy Fancey Buscher
brought her latest book of whimsical poems written for children, reading aloud
for the more than 20 kids that showed up to participate. Radio talk show host,
author and actress Brenda Darnley Martin brought her latest book Freddie,
Hector and Tish, the Treasure Hunt Fish, also reading to the children who
seemed captivated by the story and the beautiful illustrations. Martin is co-host
of a weekly radio show, Entertainment and the Arts on WTAN in Clearwater
that promotes the arts in the local area.
"I love doing the show," she said, "because we can reach a lot of people and
expose them to the arts, whether it's a production, a concert or a children's
event like this. It gets the community to come together and its fun!"
As part of the entertainment, the Bayside Gymnastics Club put on a tumbling
exhibition, using blue mats put down on the grass along 49th St. They drew
quite an audience as they defied gravity, walking on their hands, doing flips
and airborne corkscrews.
Local musician and artist Neddy brought his vast collection of drums and
began a drum circle, drawing the passers- by in with the rhythmical beats.
City of Imagination's Marlene Shaw and Jessica Sager were both very pleased
with the turnout for the event and hope that events like this shed a bright light
on the 49th St. corridor and can help merge the communities on both sides of
49th St.
"We wanted this project to be informative and to be tied to art," Shaw explained
"By using your body, painting, book reading and poetry, you express joy and
that is in and of itself, art!"

Creatine Man's Best Friend


Mark Jacobs believes that it is easier to teach a dog what she
can do instead of what she can't do.


By Cathy Salustri
Everyone loves puppies. The
smell of puppy breath, the
enthusiasm of a puppy too small
for her floppy paws-these things,
coupled with the companionship
and love of a dog, make dog
ownership very appealing.
However, dogs can be a challenge,
and an ill-trained or untrained dog
can be a source of stress rather
than a wonderful experience.
Mark Jacobs believes the key to
a well-behaved dog in your home
lies with communication and
motivation.
"Those are the two things you
have to have:' Jacobs, owner of
On Command K-9 Academy,
says. "Your dog should know
what you want and what's in it
for them."
Jacobs, a seasoned dog trainer,
knows of which he speaks. He
has several decades experience
training dogs and an effective
method for teaching a dog what
you want. We asked Mark a few
questions about his methods and
how On Command K-9 Academy
handles some common issues.
G: What type of dog training
does On Command K9
Academy provide?
MJ: We've worked with
everything from Police Dogs to
Pomeranians but our specialty
is training everyday dogs to be
exceptional members of your
family. Our methods focus on
solving the problems and creating
a better bond between people and
their dogs.
G: What's involved in the actual
training?


MJ: You need to build a bond
with your dog and it will want
to be near you and please you.
That's key. Once you have a
strong bond, you simply have to
communicate to your dog what
you want him to do. With our
training, we base that on positive
reinforcement. You need to teach
your dog what's acceptable
rather than what he should not
do, because the list of what your
dog shouldn't do is going to be
much longer. The trick is getting
your dog to change its behavior
because he wants to, not because
he has to.
G: What would make a dog
want to change his behavior?
MJ: Dog behavior, much like
human behavior, largely revolves
around pursuing pleasure and
avoiding pain. However, dogs
will work much harder to get
what they want than to avoid
what they don't want. So we use
tangible rewards such as food,
affection, and game playing to
create positive associations with
desired behaviors. Once done,
repetition creates a habit pattern
that will last the life of the dog.
G: You just said that dogs will
work harder to get what they
want than they will to avoid
what they don't want If that's
true, why are shock collars so
popular?
MJ: Shock collars use harsh
intimidation methods that we will
never endorse. We accomplish
our training without methods like
shock collars. These methods
only work when the dog wears
the collar, and they only work for


the person holding the remote.
If you use a shock collar with
your dog and I take the controller
instead of you, your dog will
listen to me instead. As an expert
in dog behavior, I really believe
you will build a healthier bond
with your dog and get the desired
results by reinforcing the desired
behavior over and over again,
and discourage and redirect the
undesired.
G: How does On Command
K-9 Academy handle some of
the concerns and challenges
dog owners bring to you?
MJ: Well, the top five are jumping,
running away, housebreaking,
excitability, and aggression, and
we have different methods for
each.
G: Let's talk about a dog that
jumps on people first.
MJ: Dogs jump for a couple of
reasons.Oftentimes,weencourage
puppies to jump because we
misinterpret jumping as a sign of
affection. It's actually just a way
of demanding attention or, in some
cases, over-assertive behavior.
Obedience training teaches the
puppy where he fits into our
social structure so he finds more
acceptable ways to get attention.
G: What can you do about a
dog that runs away?
MJ: Most dogs run away because
the proper bond between human
and dog doesn't exist. Our training
strengthens the bond between the
owner and the dog. Once you
have a strong bond, not only will
your dog come back when called,
he wants to be with you and will
not run off in the first place.
G: How about accidents in the
home?
MJ: We offer a highly successful,
time-proven program. House
breaking is different than other
obedience behaviors in that it
requires more time and repetition.
It's not about teaching the dog
what you don't want it to do; it's
about showing the proper behavior
and reinforcing it. Housebroken
dogs go to the bathroom outside
because they want to and have
positive associations with doing


G: What about dogs who are
very excitable?
MJ: Overexcitement in dogs
is usually the result of the dog
not knowing how to act in a
certain situation. Owners usually
exaggerate the problem by
becoming angry and scolding
the dog, but calm, clear guidance
results in a much more relaxed
dog. Our training programs give
the dogs the confidence to shine
in all situations.
G: How about the big one-
aggression?
MJ: Dogs are usually aggressive
because of unfamiliarity or
fear. Proper obedience training
teaches the dog how to act and
socialization will desensitize the
dog to the issue so that they don't
overreact.
G: Your program includes
instruction for both the dogs
and the owners. How does that
work? Who needs the training
more, the owners or the dogs?
MJ: Actually, both do. In order to
improve the relationship we teach
each party to behave differently
to ensure the greatest chance for
success. We work with the dog and
the owner separately at first and
then the dog and owner together
to ensure this happens. First I
work with the dog one-on-one
at On Command. This training
generally lasts two weeks. Next I
reintroduce the trained dog back
in to the home. Finally, I bring
the dog and human together and
work with them to ensure that the
behaviors get reinforced properly
and consistently.
G: Is there such a thing as an
untrainable dog or a breed you
don't think can get trained
well?
MJ: We can train any dog,
regardless of her age, breed,
disposition, or specific issues. We
also train dogs for protection in a
way that doesn't produce overly
aggressive or unpredictable dogs.
If you wish your dog had better
manners, or if you need help with
any part of your dog's behavior,
call On Command K-9 Academy
and ask about a free consultation.

Martyr, great in virtue and rich in miracles,
near kinsman of Jesus Christ, faithful inter-

age in time of need, to you I have recourse
from the depth of my heart and humbly beg
to whom God has given great power to come
to my assistance. Help me in my present
urgent petition. In return, I promise to make
your name known and call you to be invoked.
St. Jude, pray for us all who invoke your aid.
Amen. Say 3 Our Fathers, 3 Hail Marys & 3
Gloria's. R.S.

MAY THE 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.
G.M.B.

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.
