The Most Holy
Name Youth Group,
in solidarity with the
National March for
Life in Washington,
DC, joined other
youth groups,
volunteers and noted
speakers in a March
for Life last Friday
afternoon. Because
of the struggling
economy, and small
budget of the Church,
the Youth Group
wasn't able to go to
D.C. and join the

City Insures
"Domestic Partners"
Commission elected to allow the city
to allow certain health insurance
coverage for domestic partners of
city employees, rather than merely
spouses. The provision allows
employees paid leave in the event
they need to take care of sick partners
or undergo the bereavement process.

Resolution Opposes
"Hometown Democ-
racy" Amendment
ST. PETE BEACH After some
debate, the City Commission adopted
a resolution that urges voters to reject
Amendment 4 on this year's ballot,
a state-wide initiative that would
require every change to the city or
county's comprehensive plan to be
put on the ballot the "Hometown
Democracy" amendment. There was

Pyle likened the resolution to the US

But city attorney Mike Davis cited
numerous other Florida cities who
have adopted similar resolutions.
"All you're doing is acting to adopt a

The resolution passed 3-2, with

A Goal and a Plan
"This is not a diet program," Nan Jensen, a registered and licensed dietitian
with the Pinellas County Cooperative Extension Service, told the small group
gathered at the Gulfport Multipurpose Senior Center. "We're not going to put
you on a diet."
The group was meeting for the first of six weekly meetings, and their goal was
simple: to control their weight.
"I've always had a weight issue," a woman named Marlene said. "I'm 65 years
old, 5'7", and weigh 280 pounds. I have high blood pressure and I don't want to
take pills anymore."
Jensen asked the participants to set a goal the first week. She encouraged them
to set small and measurable goals, such as walking up a flight of stairs, instead
of wide, sweeping goals, like working out five days a week.
Marlene set a goal to exercise three times a week at the YMCA's low-impact
water aerobics class. She's also started keeping a food journal. In three weeks
she's lost 9 12 pounds.
"I'm happy. I'm really enjoying it. I understand it's a lifestyle change and not
a diet," she said.
Another class member, Jo Ann, said she'd start spending 30 minutes three
times a week on an exercise bike, start eating breakfast, and eat a lighter
evening meal.
A third member, Scott, wants to gain weight. At 5'7", he only weighs 148 pounds.
His goal? He wants to try and remember to eat three times a day.
Every week, Jensen makes a healthy lunch for the class members. The class
has three weeks to go; it is free.
Check out some of Nan Jensen's healthy recipes on
The Gabber Newspaper's Facebook page.

City Examines Potential
Revenue Sources
municipalities virtually all
governing bodies, really, feeling
the squeeze on their budgets in the
face of declining revenue sources,
many are looking for create ways to
enhance their coffers. Tuesday the
City of St. Pete Beach called on Ken
Small of the Florida League of Cities,
who presented a municipal revenue
overview before the commission.
Small pointed out areas where the
city was not maximizing its potential
revenue namely through millage
rates and the communication services
But the commission's major
concern appeared to be the perceived
imbalance between what the city
contributes to the county's "bed tax"
23 percent of the total sum, and
what it gets back.
"It just is surprising to me that we
can't get what some consider our fair
sharer back," said Commissioner
Christopher Leonard.
Small said that, due to the hospitality
industry lobby's clout in Tallahassee,
among other things, getting the state
legislature to listen to municipal
governments on the matter may be a
"I don't think we've had a ground
swell big enough to get the legislature
to pay attention," Small said.

MVIarch, from front page
national march. So Holy Name's
Father Vladimir and Youth
Minister Collyn Lockamy decided
to stage their own March for Life
weekend, enjoining the Dioceses of
St. Petersburg and Orlando to bring
their youth groups to Gulfport and
participate in celebration of Life as
"The kids decided they wanted
to be heard," Lockamy said. "They
really wanted to be included in the
March in Washington, but opted to
have their own March here."
The kids had a "lock in" Thursday
night at the Maria Center and
Youth Ministry, with parents
and volunteers bringing in air
mattresses and bedding for the
overnight adventure. The girls
occupied one part of the building and
the boys were upstairs in another
area. Friday morning was spent
setting up the Maria Center and the
Church for the rally and dinner that
would follow Friday night's march
down 58th Street to Gulfport Beach.
There they formed a prayer circle
and celebration before returning
to the church grounds. The City of
Gulfport provided police protection
for the demonstrators along the
"The City was great, very helpful
to us," said Lockamy. "We had no

age Ja y L ar

problem obtaining all of the necessary
permits for the event." Lockamy also
added that they plan to make this an
annual event at Most Holy Name, to
coincide with the National March for
Life held in Washington, D.C.
After the march, the more than 300
kids andvolunteerswere treatedto the
music of John Angotti, a nationally-
known Christian singer who was in
town for another performance. Spirit
FM was a sponsor as well and had
announced the march on the air.
The Catholic religion believes
that life begins at conception, that
abortion is wrong and that every
child, no matter how small, born or
unborn, is a child of God.

MOU Gives Suntan
Arts Center More
Control Over Facility
Commission voted 4-1 to enter into
a memorandum of understanding
between the city and the Suntan Arts
Center, housed in the Don Vista, a
city building. The understanding
adds to an MOU enacted last year
that gave the center control over
its own staffing. This year's MOU
gives the arts center a greater role

in maintaining the facility through
pest control, cleaning, minor
maintenance, and electric and
water utilities. According to a report
prepared by Public Services Director
Stephen Hallock, the move can
potentially save the city more than
$116,000 annually. The city will
continue to cover costs associated
with maintaining the building's
mechanical, electrical, and plumbing
systems as well as trash pickup.
Commissioner Christopher Leonard,
who represents the District 2 (in

which the Don Vista stands), cast
the only dissenting vote.

Dear Editor: Re: "Gulfport: The Musical" Look out Broadway! Thank you,
thank you, thank you...to each and everyone who brought is amazing, historical,
emotional, enjoyably entertaining and community-bonding 100th Ii'lhl.y
Present" to our city of Gulfport.
Based on Lynne Brown's Gulfport History Book and musically composed
with lyrics and re-writing by the extremely talented Gil Perlroth, the play was
astoundingly directed by Daniel Harris. The music was phenomenally directed
by Bill Bryant. Each individual cast member was obviously extremely talented
and dedicated to our community. The musicians, back stage personnel, lighting
crew, the Historical Museum's old photos DVD, the set artists and sound techs...
everyone involved deserves acknowledgement, gratitude and an award for such
professionalism, dedication and loving commitment.
"Gulfport: The Musical" is fantastically presented with an unprecedented sense
of community association; bonding and sincere sense of neighborly "place".
"Gulfport: The Musical" truly reaffirms that "There's no place like home!".

What Can Brown Do for You?
By Greg Stemm
No matter how dreadful
t ~they look now, over the
coming months you'll
Sbe surprised at resilient
your tropical plants
really are. You'll be
tempted to jump right
in and begin pruning
Things back. It's only
natural considering
how awful everything
looks at the moment.
But be patient.
We aren't really out
of the woods yet. The
brown leaves you see
can actually work to
your advantage if we
do have another cold
snap. They act as
insulation and will
actually protect the
plant from even further damage. Also, pruning encourages your plants
to put out new growth, which is very susceptible to severe damage
in a frost or a freeze. As hard as it is, the best thing for you to do at
the moment as a gardener is wait, wait, wait. You'll have plenty to
keep you busy this spring!

South Pasadena Elections Canceled
By Kate Bradshaw
SOUTH PASADENA- While 2010 is already shaping up to be a contentious
and harrowing election year at the state and national levels, some
municipalities are not exactly feeling the heat.
This March, South Pasadena was to hold elections to determine who
would occupy two open City Commission seats as well as that of the mayor.
South Pasadena City Clerk Mary Braisted said that one person applied and
qualified for each seat, and that each currently occupies the seat they seek.
Braisted said that all three had been appointed to the commission in June
of last year. Mayor Kathleen Peters, who had been elected to the commission
in 2008, was appointed mayor when then-mayor Dick Holmes resigned for
personal reasons. Commissioner Diane Hauser also resigned at that time
because she moved out of town.
Mickey McMenamin and Arthur Penny were appointed to the seats that
were left vacant.
Braisted said that that this isn't the first time an election was cancelled -
2009 and 2007 also went without a contested election.
She said she wasn't sure why no one is challenging the three seats.
"I can't answer that question," she said. "I have no idea."
And while things might get testy in places like Gulfport, South Pasadena
isn't the only municipality in south Pinellas to see seats go unchallenged.
The two St. Pete Beach City Commission seats that were up this March
went unchallenged, as did two in Treasure Island and two in Madeira

Lori Weidner, Gulfport: "Im just
about donewith that... as devastated
as Haiti is and I feel bad for them,
but with the amount of money that
they've been given this week, the US
could have bailed itself out. I'm even
having trouble paying my own bills
and I'm not getting any help from
the government. Our whole country
is in such a deep depression, yet
we're sending millions and millions
of dollars to Haiti. We've got people
here that need help just as much.
But if it wasn't the US helping
Haiti, I would hope that some of
the other countries would step up.
We're actually a poorer country now
than we've ever been. We need to
help ourselves before we help the
rest of the world."

Susan Harris, St. Pete: "I think it's
good that we are involved and I know
the people over there really need
our help. But the thing is, we need
to concentrate on our own people,
like our troops and our veterans.
We've got many orphans here at
home; children of our troops that
died in the wars and they need just
as much help as the Haitian orphans.
They're not getting the aftercare and
counseling that families need after
the trauma of losing a soldier to the
war. It's commendable that people
want to adopt the Haitian children,
but it almost seems like a fashion
statement. There are a lot of children
right here in the US that desperately
need help and I think we need to
take care of our own. Look at Texas; I
heard it was the first state to send to
send aid to Haiti, yet when Katrina
happened, they turned the hurricane
victims away on the highway and
sent them back to New Orleans, Our
own people! What happened to Haiti
is tragic and I think they deserve
help. But we're missing a lot of
other important issues right here in
America. Every time a global tragedy
hits, America rushes in to help. We
need to start taking care of our own
people, especially the children and the
troops. We need to pull together."

Nick Rose, South Pasadena: I Iy
opinion is that we should help the
Haitian government get back on their
feet and then get out. We committed
$100 million dollars of our money
to Haiti, which by the way, has
traditionally been one of the most
corrupt in the world. So giving them
that much money is like pouring cash
down a commode. We should just
help them and get out."
. .

John Rankin, (ulfport: "1 think
we should help people wherever we
can. If we have to go down and help
them rebuild, we should. We should
help out regardless if it possibly
presents an economic opportunity for
America. We should just do it. It's the
right thing to do."

SPCA Pet of the Week
Bruno is a one year old male Australian Kelpie mix who

finding a new, loving home. Bruno is a little over a year
old. He was very alert to his handler and seems to be very
treat-motivated. He is friendly, already knows how to sit
and is eager to learn much more from his new family.
What a great dog! Please come visit Bruno at SPCA
Tampa Bay, 9099 130 Avenue N. in Largo or call (727) 586-3591.

Audition for "The Sting"
Island Community Theatre
announces open auditions for its next
production, "The Sting". Director
Elaine Cloud Goller says there are
numerous roles for all ages and both
genders; at least a dozen each for
male and female, ages teen to senior.
Many actors will enjoy playing
multiple characters.
The story takes place in 1930s
Chicago, in a world of small-time
hustlers and their girls, their money
nonexistent but their ingenuity
abundant. Johnny Hooker (a small-
time grifter played by Robert
Redford in the film) joins a friend
in a successful con of a "runner."
Unfortunately for them, the runner
works for a powerful, vindictive
rackets boss, Doyle Lonnegan, who

is infuriated and arranges the killing
of Johnny's friend. Hoping to avenge
this senseless murder, Johnny enlists
the aid of the master con man Henry
Gondorff (originally played by Paul
Newman). Together they decide to
try the big con called "The Wire."
Auditions begin at 6:30 p.m.
Monday and Tuesday, February 8-9,
at the Island Community Theatre
Rehearsal Hall, located at 286 107
Avenue in Treasure Island. Arrive on
time, as there are several components
to the auditions. Dress comfortably

and ready to move. Actors wishing to
preview the script should email the
director at ecgoller@yahoo.com. Visit
or call (727) 235-8719 for details.

Volunteers Wanted
The City of South Pasadena is looking
for residents to volunteer to help with
city events. For information, call City

Band Salutes Presidents

The South Pasadena Community

entitled Presidential Salute. The
concert is free to the public and will
be presented Thursday, February 11,
at 7:30 p.m. in the Boca Ciega High
School Auditorium located at 924
58 Street S. in St. Petersburg. The
facility has adequate free parking
and is handicap accessible.
According to Max Millspaugh, the
concert will feature a Lincoln portrait
set to music and a moving Jefferson
portrait with a musical background.
"We will also feature some familiar
marches and a very interesting
Dixieland arrangement that will
include several Dixieland standards,
said Millspaugh. "We are planning
to present some other selections that
will give the audience nice variety
and some interesting, listenable
fare," he concluded.
Mayor Kathleen Peters said that
the community is welcome and that
South Pasadena is pleased to be
part of making the band available
to the entire community. "This is a
community relations initiative that
we have supported in part for over
twentyyears," shecommented. "When
they play the National Anthem or,
as they will on this concert, "Ruffles
and Flourishes" followed by "Hail to
the Chief," I can't help but think of
the pageantry of military bands and
the connection between bands and
the ceremony that has surrounded
every president of our great country.
This will be a very interesting and
inspiring concert," she said.
Parking will be available in

accommodated in special parking

Listen Up!

Listen up Republicans. Scott
Brown's winning of the
Massachusetts' Senate seat
was not about you. And, it isn't just
about the Obama agenda. It's about
politicians and political behavior,
and that covers both parties. Also, big
media, you can do all the analyzing
you want, but it's way too late. You
missed the story early in the year,
particularly in September of 2009,
and I'm not sure some of you get it
I was in Washington, D. C. for the
9/12 march and can say, as I did in
a column right afterwards, that the
majority of people who took the time
and effort and money to be there
weren't whacko right wingers, and
weren't funded by any organization.
Most were and are sick and tired
of relentless raids on taxpayers'
pocket books by elitist, professional
politicians who don't seem to be
representing anyone but themselves.
Smirking elitist politicians, pundits
and smug citizens, who ridiculed this
"peoples movement" as tea baggers,

whackos, conspiracists, and worse,
were shocked by the Massachusetts
results. After all, President Obama
commented that Scott Brown was
just a pickup truck owner and anyone
can own a pickup truck. Aren't pickup
truck owners kind of nobodies? Well,
the nobodies apparently did the
As for the media (Washington Post,
New York Times, Los Angeles Times,
all major networks with the exception
of Fox), I wrote on September 16, "if
big media is ignoring the trend, we'll
see a string of "what a surprise"
stories about events that were right
in front of their noses." That has
happened, and it really is fun to be
However, as I noted at the start
of this column, this isn't about any
one political party. This is about
the people speaking up and turning
out. Yes, there are organizations out
there, but the feeling I get is that
even within those organizations
people are feeling and acting
independently. Consequently,

reading this loose group is difficult.
It will be increasingly difficult to
predict election results.
Politicians trying to ride the populist
wave could get badly damaged.
When the voters get more cynical
than the politicians, unpredictable
things happen. For instance, being
anti-global warming doesn't mean
anti-environment. Nor, does being
pro-environment mean being against
all oil and gas drilling. Anti-illegal
immigration doesn't mean anti-
immigration. Anti-health care
programs as now proposed, doesn't
mean anti-all health care programs.
And, "bringing home the bacon"
could today be considered attempted
bribery. After all, the money (bacon)
being brought back was taken from
my pocket in the first place.
However, I suspect that pro-national
security does mean not giving foreign
terrorists American citizens' rights,
nor condoning outright torture. And,
I don't think voters believe creating
jobs means creating more government

GULFPORT _________


* ...:tt, ..,.

*. K-E

In just 37 weeks, Gulfport will
celebrate the centennial of its
incorporation, October 12, 1910. We'll
be reminding you every week with an
interesting old photograph from the
collection of the Historical Museum. See
if you can identify the people, places, and
above all the decade of each picture as it
comes along. To make it a little bit of a
challenge, we won't publish the correct
caption until the following week.
The Pasadena Golf Course Apartments,
in the center of last week's picture, were
built in 1969, but the rest of the PYCC
came later. Buildings "A" and "B" were
completed by 1985 and construction on
individual home lots soon followed.

What did this plaque honor, where was it displayed, and why doesn't it
exist today? Also, which one of our mayors stands before it in this picture?
Answer next week.

Email your request to News@theGabber.com
By Kate Bradshaw
City of St. Pete Beach
Q: You know that one building, kind of purplish-blue, next to the 7-11 on
Gulf Boulevard? The one that housed another one of those one-stop shot
glass, snorkel, and hilarious t-shirt shops? Well, it seems like one day the
building was just gone. I don't recall any demolition crews or anything; it
was just kind of not there anymore one day. What's the deal?

A: The answer is simple, really. While you may lament that the gap-
ing hole at 6255 Gulf Blvd. leaves fully exposed that moustache-glorifying
welcome mural, fear not, as property owner Paul Resop said he plans to
rebuild on the property if he can get two small variances. "The building
was old and needed to be torn down," he said. "The beach as got to grow.
If we're going to be a tourist destination, we've got to modernize." He said
he plans to build a 3,200 square foot structure on the property, though the
tenant is yet to be determined. One variance has to do with parking the
developer wants to put in one less parking space than is required, which
would still be more than what was there. The other variance would reduce
the rear setback to nine feet down from the required 29 feet. Planning Di-
rector Karl Holley said that the back of the property abuts a gravel park-
ing lot, and that reduced setback requests typically run into trouble only
when other structures may potentially be encroached upon. The building
that until recently sat on that property was constructed in the 50s, had
initially served as a hotel, and had been remodeled many times, Holley
said, adding that properties along Gulf Boulevard are uncharacteristically
narrow due the widening of that road. If the variances are granted, the
City Commission then needs to approve it.

Are Trusts Only for
the Super-Rich?
While it is true that you should have
a fair amount of assets before you
consider setting up a trust, a trust is
no longer the province of the "super-
Simply stated, a trust is a legal
document that makes it possible for
you to put aside some of your money
and direct how it will be used upon
your death or in some form of trust,
while you're alive. A trust may also
ease your tax bite.
A trust generally offers several
advantages: among them, the assets
don't have to go through probate,
which saves time and money.
Additionally, you may be able to
maintain control over the trust assets

while you're alive and capable; sick
and incapable; or as part of an estate
plan at your death.
Many individuals and families have
found that trusts offer a number
of interesting financial planning
opportunities. Even where your
estate plan calls for all the assets of
the first-to-die spouse to pass to the
surviving spouse under the unlimited
marital estate tax deduction,
significant estate tax may be due on
the death of the surviving spouse.
Proper use of carefully drafted non-
marital trusts for the benefit of the
surviving spouse and/or children may
keep these assets out of the surviving
spouse's estate and reduce the overall
tax bite on the estate plan.
So-called "living trusts" have become
very popular with those interested
in avoiding the expense, delay and
publicity of probate; while allowing
the grantor to maintain control over
the trust assets during his or her
lifetime, if capable and competent.
The type of trust you use depends
on your personal situation and
the advice you receive from a legal

Group Weddings on
Valentine's Day
CLEARWATER: Once again,
numerous couples will join together
at the picturesque Florida Botanical
Gardens in Largo for one group
wedding ceremony to be performed
by Clerk of the Circuit Court, Ken
Burke, on Valentine's Day, Sunday,
February 14.
This is the fourth year the Clerk's
Office is hosting this event, which
has become a County tradition. The
Clerk's Office is officially closed on
Sunday, but romance doesn't take
time off, so Burke decided to still
hold the event. Once again the single
ceremony uniting multiple couples in
marriage will be held in the Florida
Botanical Gardens' Wedding Garden.
The one ceremony will take place
at 2 p.m. in the Wedding Garden at
Florida Botanical Gardens, 12520
Ulmerton Road in Largo. To add
to the ambiance of the event the
Charmonizers barber shop quartet
have once again volunteered to
serenade the couples and the Clerk's
Office employees have chipped in to
provide wedding cake. Couples will
receive a special, commemorative
Marriage Certificate, which will be
mailed within one week from the
date of the ceremony with the official
certificate of marriage.
The Clerk has waived the normal
$30 fee to perform the marriage.
Standard marriage license fees will
still apply.
To participate, couples must sign up
at any Pinellas County Clerk's office
by Monday, February 8, 2010.
The number of couples may be
limited due to space. Marriage
licenses must be applied for between
December 21, 2009, and February 11,
2010, in order to participate on the
February 14, 2010, wedding date.
All couples should arrive at the
Botanical Gardens by 1 p.m. on the
day of the event with their marriage
license and identification.
For more information regarding the
process and locations to apply for a
marriage license, contact Recording
Services at 727-464-3008, or visit
the Clerk's website at http://www.

Excerpts heard at the January 26, 2010

St. Pete Beach

City Commission Meeting

Public Comment

& Council Quotes

Ken Weiss, attorney for
anti-development group
Citizens for Responsible
Growth, telling the city
commission during pub-
lic comment that the
litigation against the city
isn't about Hometown
Democracy it's about
keeping developers from
controlling the city's com-
prehensive plan, he says.

"People read this, and they think, 'poor little old St. Pete Beach."'
-St. Pete Beach City Commissioner Bev Garnett, referencing a recent
article in Travel and Leisure magazine profiling the new Postcard Inn. In
its opening paragraphs, the article characterizes St. Pete Beach as run-

"It was like a kangaroo court. I just found it really very, very poor
and you all just sat there and allowed it to happen."
-Resident Deborah Sheffner, on the way that the public hearing on the
Coconut Inn rezone was conducted on January 12.

"It's almost like they're poisoning the well."
Resident Bob Manning, in response to rumors that the ballot initiative
that will be voted on this March which concerns community
redevelopment areas is a tax.

"I think what we should be doing is urging people to get involved."
- Commissioner Christopher Leonard, who voted "no" on a resolution
that urges voters to reject the Hometown Democracy amendment.

"The terms 'attractive' and 'crappy' are not defined in our land
use code."-Community Development Director Karl Holley, addressing
commissioners' questions on changes to the city's sign ordinance.

"You must be a Zen Buddhist to maintain such an even keel."
-Commissioner Jim Parent to City Manager Mike Bonfield during
Bonfield's annual performance evaluation, presumably referring to the
City Manager's handling of numerous controversies involving the city as
well as lawsuits.

Cathy Sagy a stri

Iso much hate the cold that at
the first hint that Florida isn't
facing an unexpected ice age,
I have these wild fantasies. They
involve seeing the sun for more than
an hour at a time, wearing shorts
and bathing suits instead of jeans
and sweatshirts, and splashing
around in the water.
Given that, you'll understand that
after a few weeks of shivering and
using more than my allotted share
of lip balm and moisturizer, I had
no defenses when I walked into
the kayak outfitter Monday. Oh,
sure, I told myself I was only there
to help my better half look at new
kayaks, but from the moment I saw
her, I had to have her. Sleek, with
a chiseled keel, and more room for
Calypso The Wonder Hound to ride
in the cockpit, she has a bevy of
extras that my functional but basic
kayak (now approaching the ripe
old age of seven) doesn't.
Faster than you can say "impulse
purchase" I had a new lime green
kayak. Only after I got her home
and saw my old kayak looking at me
with reproach in her paddles did I
feel a twinge of shame, because she
has served me well.
I remember the day I got her,
rushing down to the Narrows and
paddling around, trying out her skeg,
adjusting the seat, and reveling in
the sound my paddle made in the
water. We've traveled the state
together, and while we've had some
rough times (like the time I managed
to unintentionally roll the boat
while putting in from a rather steep
bank at Lithia Springs) we've had
some great ones, too (like the time
a dolphin surfaced inches from my
paddle at Fort DeSoto.) She's taken
me past green heron chicks on Clam
Bayou and made me mourn the loss
of Florida countryside as we glided
down the straight, lifeless banks of
the straightened Kissimmee River.
Kayaks and canoes serve many
Floridians well; they bring us down
to eye level with the nature we

want so keenly to protect. Anytime
I want to see what progress (or lack
thereof) the city, state, or various
watchdog groups are making (or
blocking) in Clam Bayou, I can put
in at the city park and paddle the
mangroves myself. If I want to see
how bad this year's drought is, I
can drive to the Econlockhatchee,
Wekiwa or Hillsborough rivers and
look at the water lines on as I paddle
past the trees. From my cockpit I
see the story of the river, creek, or
bay, as told by the ibis and orchids
and manatee.
You could call me an instant
gratification environmentalist,
which I freely admit isn't the most
selfless sort. If it's something close
to my heart (like the Everglades)
or my home (like Clam Bayou),
I care. While I'd love to hike the
Appalachian Trail someday, the
issues surrounding it are mere
environmental abstractions in my
mind. I know they're out there, like
communism or bioweapons, but
it's harder for me to get worked up
about them.
During Gulfport council meetings,
councilman Sam Henderson recently
started mentioning mountaintop
removal mining, a practice
associated with coal mining. Last
week, Henderson asked the city to
sign their support for ending this
practice. His request met with some
derisive snickers from some of the
citizens attending the meeting.
While I don't think the public
displays of derision were anything
approaching mature or appropriate,
I didn't get why Henderson cared,
either. I mean, Clam Bayou is right
here, and there are groups trying to
destroy the last remaining estuary
on Boca Ciega Bay. Why on earth
waste even a moment on somebody
else's problem?
I'm guessing Henderson's one
of those fools who sees "The Big
Picture." Perhaps he mistakenly
believes the nature you touch isn't
the only nature worth protecting.

I suppose he naively thinks that
every city and state has its own
water quality, wildlife and air and
water contamination issues, and
really, what does it cost one city
to pledge its support for another?
Or worse: he might want council to
do this because he cares about the
environment and it's the right thing
to do.
Well, I can tell him right now
that we just don't need that kind of
crazy talk on council. We do enough,
what with our biofuels, sporadic
bayou clean ups and lip service
to "saving the planet." We have
curbside recycling, for heaven's
sake. What's next, Mr. Henderson?
Clean drinking water for everyone?
Asking the state to find alternative,
cleaner sources of energy? Finding a
way to make our recycling program
more efficient and viable?
Get with the program, Mr.
Henderson. Don't you know that
the whole world can go to hell as
long as we protect our little square
of paradise? We exist in a vacuum,
so changes to the rest of the world
won't ever impact us. As long as I
can take my shiny new kayak down
to the Bayou and paddle, what do I
Crazy talk, this notion of protecting
someone else's nature. What are you
thinking? I'm certain those folks
in Appalachia, should they ever
hear about Clam Bayou, won't say,
"Hey, that's like what's happening
here. We can't do much, but maybe
we should do something. We
understand; we've been there. We
know what it's like to worry about
losing something precious."
Because, you know, most people
are like me. Now, if you want to
go ahead and be the better man, if
you want to push the city to be a
little bit more socially responsible
than it was when you took office,
or give us the reputation of being
environmentally aware, you just go
right ahead.
I'll be over here in the corner, secure
in the knowledge that because I
pluck the occasional soda can out
of the water while paddling Clam
Bayou, I've done enough.

All Dressed Up with So Many Places to Go!

Members of the Town Shores Red Hatters enjoyed a wonderful cruise. The
floor shows were very entertaining, the food great, the tin-a-ling coming from
the lounge area and all the shore trips kept them entertained. They had a few
minor casualties that were treated in sick bay, kept watch over a stranded
boat until the coast guard arrived to give aid to the people on board and had a
few guilt feelings that they ate too much ice cream, but are looking forward to
another cruise next year.
On February 12 they will have their own "Strawberry Festival" along with
Bunko in the clubhouse lounge from 1-3 p.m. They will need a head count so
please RSVP to Judy at 344-7558, Bev at 381-2122 or Petie at 343-6450 if you
plan to attend.
Don't forget they will attend the play "Anything Goes" this Sunday at 2 p.m.
at the St. Petersburg Little Theatre.

Tim Henson Let Go As Boca Ciega's JV Football Coach

Boca Ciega's former
JV coach, Tim Henson

By Leigh Clifton
On October 22, 2009, Boca
Ciega junior varsity football
coach Tim Henson became
one of the winningest coaches
in the school's history,
beating Tarpon Springs 22
-0. As the JV football coach,
Coach Tim, as he was called,
finished 2006, his first year,
with only one loss, to St.
Pete High. The following
three seasons, 2007, 2008
and 2009 he took his team to
three perfect, back-to-back
undefeated seasons. He was
a coach, by many accounts,
who was a wonderful mentor
for his players, a dedicated
teacher who stayed involved
in his player's lives, who
called the parents whenever
he felt there was a problem
and a coach who constantly
encouraged camaraderie
and teamwork to his kids.
He earned high praise for
his coaching ethics, from
players, parents and other
coaches. He washed the
team uniforms on his own
dime. He did this on his own
time; he was never paid.
By November 3, 2009 he
was let go by varsity coach
Steve Thomas.
There are different
accounts of what happened.
Coach Thomas referred me
to Bogie Athletic Director
Heather Holloway, who told
me that Coach Thomas fired

Coach Henson because of
a philosophical difference
of coaching styles and that
Coach Thomas had the full
backing of the administrative
team, which included
Principal Paula Nelson.
"We met about it and
reviewed Coach Thomas'
concerns about Coach Tim
and while there were a lot of
positives and we had hoped
to work out a team effort,
Coach Thomas felt there was
just too much of a difference
in coaching styles to make it
work, "Holloway explained.
Coach Henson says that's
not quite how he remembered
"I usually stay on the
sidelines when the varsity
plays, helping out and
encouraging the kids,
checking if the other coaches
need anything. A day or
two before the October 30th
Seminole game at Seminole,
Coach Thomas asked me
if I would film the game
from the booth, which is on
the opposing team's side. I
respectfully told him that
I really wasn't comfortable
shooting the game; I'm not
much of one for camera
work and my eyes aren't as
good as they used to be. I
also told him that I really
wanted to be on the sidelines
for that game, as several of
my JV kids were dressing
as varsity for the first time
and I wanted to be there to
encourage them and settle
them down, if they needed
it. So I told him I didn't want
to do it and could he find
someone else. I didn't think
anything of it until we got
to the Seminole game and
Coach Thomas asked me
again to shoot the game. I
told him again that I just
didn't feel comfortable and
that I wanted to be with my
players on the field. Ijust felt
that I would be more help for
them if I was on the field. We
played the game.
The following Tuesday,
November 3, he called me in

for a meeting at 3:30. I got
there late because I work in
Clearwater, which he knew.
He told me I was suspended
for telling him no and to give
him my keys and coach's
shirt. I just looked at him. I
was in shock, but I gave him
my stuff."
Coach Henson then
contacted both Principal
Nelson and Administrative
Director Heather Holloway
to request a meeting with
them, him and Coach
Thomas. It was there that
he learned that he wasn't
suspended, but fired.
"I am still in shock," Coach
Tim says.
Bridgette Fields, a football
mom whose son played for
Coach Tim, says she has
pulled her son from the
football program at Bogie.
"I thought firing Coach Tim
was really messed up. They
let a good coach go. I won't
let my son play for Coach
Thomas. I've heard him
curse and yell at the kids
when they make a mistake,
especially in front of the rest
of the team." Fields says.
Tanya Franks, whose two
boys played for Coach Tim,
was especially surprised and
"The whole bunch of us
parents, we just stood with
our mouths wide open. The
reasons for his firing don't
sound legitimate. He takes
a personal interest in all
the kids and has always told
us parents to call him if we
have any concerns. I look at
him as the Tony Dungee of
St. Pete."
April Runcie agrees. Her
son has played the last two
years with JV and is moving
up to varsity.
"Coach Tim was always
strict, but fair and he didn't
let the kids run amok on the
sidelines. He always asked
the boys to wear nice shirts
and ties on game day. My
son loved it; people would
always recognize him as a
member of the football team.

It made him feel really good.
I'm mad as a hornet right
now and I think it puts the
kids in a bad situation. I've
heard a lot of them don't
want to play football now."
Runcie said.
Regardless of what has
happened, Coach TimHenson
wants both Paula Nelson
and Heather Holloway to
know that he is so thankful
and grateful for their past
support. He has accepted a
JV coaching position with St.
Pete High School, who called
him as soon as they heard he
was available.

Myth: Patients can easily see if they have varictse veins by just looking ai their legs.
Fact: 90% of varicose veins are deeper inside the legs and, ini many patienLs with severe symptoms, all of the varicose veins
are hidden in Ihe leg and visible only on ultrasound examination.
* Myth People seek cures for varicose vein disease merely because of vanity.
* Fact: Varicose veins result in tiredness and heaviness in the legs. as well as painful. aching or burning sensations. Varicose vein
disease can cause ankle swelling and severe night cramps. This is a real disease, involving failed valves in the veins. The
resulting increased pressure in the veins below failed valves causes long term deterioration if not treated. Serious
consequences include eczema, stasis dermatitis, pigmentation changes, skin ulceralions and bleeding. Phlebitis (clot and
inflam tion) in varicoe veins increase the isk ofvery dangerous deep vein thumbosis (DVT) and pulmon- y emboln i (PE),
M* yth: The only treatment for varicose vein disease is painful and requires two weeks of inactivity.
SFlact: Endovenous Lascr Treatment has been proven to be very safe. effective and relatively pain ftee, with patients experiencing
only minimal discomfort ftecr the procedure and quick recovery times. Endovenotis Laser Treatment is an outpatient
procedure completed in our office in less than half an hour. The patient can resume Knnal activity the same or the following day.
* Myth: There are going to be scars after undergoing the procedure.
* Facet Endovenous Laser Treatment is painless and non-surgical no scalpel is used. This procedure is performed through an intra
venous cllheter. Our patients have none of the problems that have been associated with surgical ligation, stripping and
other invasive treatments.
* Myth: Closing off a major vein can cause circulatory problems tater on.
* F-act Treating the cause of varicose vein disease enlails closing off the faulty veins. There are many veins in the leg, and. after
treatment, the blood that is simply pooling in the failed veins will be diverted to healthy veins in order to make its way back
to Ihe heart.
Myth: Endovenous Laser Treatment is Tnt covered by health insurance or medicare.

Discover Yourself: Lifestyle Change for Those 50 and Older

By Cathy Salustri

If you really want to lose weight
or get in shape but you are totally
overwhelmed by all the incredibly
young and impossibly toned bodies
next to you on the elliptical, you're
not alone. If you (or your doctor!)
feels that your health is at risk
because of excessive weight or
a lack of exercise, Claire Lynn
knows what you're feeling-and
she can help.
Claire has had cancer four
times and struggled with obesity
throughout her life, and a few
years ago she reached a point
where she said she had to change
her lifestyle (in regards to
nutrition and exercise.)
"I had to stop letting my body
control me; I sought to control it,"
this trim 69-year-old woman says,
adding that exercise wasn't part
of her life. "You couldn't get me to
walk across the street."
Now, she's lost 75 pounds, run a
half-marathon, and says that not
only is her health great, but, she
says, "I am happier with more
energy than I could ever have
envisioned. More importantly,
I'm in control of my body."
"My journey to improve my
health, my life, and my strength
has been exciting and no doubt at
times difficult, but I'm committed
to maintaining my lifestyle while
reaching and maintaining my
final weight loss goal," Claire
Claire started her weight loss
journey by trying to work out on
her own, logging hours on the
treadmill and getting frustrated
by not seeing results. Only when
she started working with a
personal trainer, she says, did the
pounds start to come off.
"I started seeing results and I
started feeling better," she says.
That inspired her to become a
personal trainer so she could help
If you've got the idea in your
head that a personal trainer is a
hard-core fitness fanatic who will
force you to do hundreds of sit-

After struggling with cancer and her weight, Claire Lynn found a personal trainer who set
goals she could meet and learned to make fitness part of her life. Now she's a certified
personal trainer who helps others over 50 meet their goals.

ups and squats, you should know
right now that Claire doesn't
work that way. She's a certified
fitness trainer, and that means
knowing what types of exercises
are right for what types of people.
When you meet with her (she
offers a free consultation) she'll
work with you to design a fitness
program you can stick to without
feeling overwhelmed, frustrated,
or hopeless.
Here's something else a lot of
people appreciate: Claire isn't
going to make you set foot in the
gym. She says that people can
get the workout they need in the
privacy and comfort of their own
'Whether you want privacy,
prefer to stay out of the gym, or
work out in your home, I'll work
with you to make sure your efforts
are as beneficial and comfortable
as possible," she says. She offers
flexible scheduling and reasonable
rates: after your free consultation,
you'll get 25% off your first session
(if you sign up for three months
of weekly sessions.) To train one
person for an hour, she charges
$40 an hour. To train between two

and four people per session, she
drops the rate to $20 per person
per hour, so couples can work out
for the same price as one person.
Claire specializes in people over
50, because she's been in their
shoes and knows how intimidating
losing weight can be, especially
for people who have always been
heavy and can't seem to shake
the weight. Whether you want to
lose 10 pounds or 100, Claire can
help you. She will support, assist
and encourage you to get positive
You can start today by calling her
or e-mailing her. She's more than
ready and able to help you lose
weight or maintain your current
weight by helping you "discover
yourself' through exercise.
