Missing Bogie
Baseball Equipment:
Have You Seen It?
By Leigh Clifton

On March 16, a Tuesday, Boca
Ciega High School baseball
team catcher Ben Cope was
driving his truck on 66th and
Central Ave. on his way to
baseball practice. His baseball
bag, with over $1000 worth of
equipment, fell out of the bed of
his truck and onto the road. By
the time Ben was able to turn
around to come back for the
bag, someone already picked it
up and drove away with it. The
bag was clearly marked with
Boca Ciega high school on it.

Now I understand that these are the
toughest of times and that people are
struggling just to get by and put food
on the table. Equipment like this
could probably be hocked at some
pawn shop for little money. But is it
worth it? These kids that play sports
at Bogie are just like any other kids
and their families; they are struggling
to do well in school, play their sport
well and be role models for younger
kids. The cost and the loss of this
equipment is incalculable to these
kids. Most of the kids have paid for
some of it themselves by working after
school jobs and their parents have
often helped to foot the cost for bats,

baseball gloves, pads, and baseballs.
The fact that anyone would pick up
and keep a bag of equipment that
was clearly marked as being from
Boca Ciega high school and keep it
is appalling to me. Clearly, the right
thing to do is if the person who picked
up the bag is reading this, please
return the bag to the high school, no
questions asked. There is no reward
being offered; just the hope and trust
that whoever picked up the bag of
equipment will bring it back. These
kids worked very hard to get this
equipment and they deserve to have
it returned. Now maybe some Good
Samaritan actually picked up the bag
with the full intent of returning it but
didn't know where to take it. If that's
the case then please, bring it to Boca

Ciega high school on 58th St... again,
no questions asked.
If anyone has any information
about what happened to this bag of
Boca Ciega baseball team equipment
please e-mail me at: LeighClifton@
the gabber.com and I will get in touch
with the proper people so that the
equipment can get back to the kids
who need it to continue to play their
baseball season. Thank you, Gulfport.
Let's do the right thing.

Arts Gathering Kicks Off
Vision with "Pot Luck"
GULFPORT: A small but growing
number of Gulfport residents have
a vision in mind with a simple but
apt name: "The Gathering." At the
Gathering, the work of local fine
artists would be on display and for
sale in a gallery centrally located in
what has historically been Gulfport's
"Art Village." At the same facility,
artists in residence would have
studio spaces devoted to the creation
of their work.
To dedicate and draw attention
and energy to this new effort, a "pot
luck" event will be held on Thursday,
April 1 from 7 to 9 p.m. at Peg's
Cantina and Brew Pub, 3038 Beach
Boulevard S. in Gulfport. An original
work of art valued at $350 by local
award-winning glass artist Owen
Pach is currently on display at Peg's.
Chances to win the art work are now
available for $5 each at Peg's. Chances
are also available at Domain Home
Accessories, 3129 Beach Blvd. South,
where additional glass art pieces by
Mr. Pach are available. The drawing
will be held at 8 p.m. Funds from the
"pot luck" will be used to defray non-
profit organizational start-up costs
for The Gathering.
Live music by local trio Blue Cypress
will also be featured during the April
1st event. Blue Cypress offers spare
and sweet arrangements of old and
original alt-Americana-style tunes,
with guitar, banjo and lead vocals by
Erin Janus.

Theatre Walk Comes to
Gulfport's Art District
After a four year hiatus, Three
Muses & A Fool Productions is excited
to present its 9th Theatre Walk
"Smitings". This lively theatrical
event centers around six short plays
written by award-winning writer, and
author of the "hauntingly hilarious",
"Still Life with Bulls and Sangria".
This year, The Walk is led by a
disgruntled substitute Sunday School
teacher, trying her best to recall the
biblical stories she's supposed to

be teaching. She ushers her "class"
through Gulfport's Art District,
where her peculiar recollections of
Goliath, Samson & Delilah, Jesus,
Joan of Arc, and even the Norse
God Odin materialize on the streets.
Directed by Ciara Carinci, the
cast includes veteran Walkers Jim
Greene, Lynda Kavy, Tom Laitinin,
Bethany Peabody and Peter Suarez.
Performances are April
1 and 3, Thursday at
7:30 p.m.; Saturday at 8:30 p.m. The
Walk commences at the Courtyard
Village on Beach Blvd. in Gulfport's
Art District. Tickets are $10. Call
727-321-1786 or become a fan of

Brian Brady, Gulfport: "For
Easter I'm going up to New Port
Richey with my girlfriend Jessica to
see my grandparents who live there.
My mom, my dad and sister will all
be there as well. There'll be at least
12 of us. We all grew up here and we
stay pretty close. We'll probably have
ham and all the traditional fixings.
They don't let me near the food, I just
eat it. My grandfather used to sit and
tell me stories about Gulfport in the
50s, both the good and the bad from
the old days. We should have a lot of

Lynne White and Ciara White,
visiting from Minneapolis: 1n I
daughter and I are in town visiting
my mother who lives in Gulfport.
There will be just the three of us and
we usually go to brunch at the Don
C6sar. The Easter Bunny may be
visiting my mom's house while we're
gone but it's always supposed to be a
secret if he does. After brunch we go
out to Mother's Pier; it's actually the
Gulfport pier, but we call it Mother's
Pier because my mother's mother,
my grandmother Alene, used to walk
it every day. She's now 103 years old
and still alive. So we walk the pier
in honor of her. After that, if it's nice
we'll sit by the pool. After all, we
don't get weather like this often in
Minneapolis. And it's been a tough
winter for everyone."

Shaneice Williams, St. Pete: "This
year it's my mom's birthday and my
sister and I are taking her out to eat
at Red Lobster. After that, we'll go
see a movie together. We used to do
the traditional Easter dinner with
the Easter outfits, dyed eggs and
go to church for Easter service, but
we stopped about three years ago.
I had so much fun as a child. Now
I'm expecting a baby; I wish she
was here already so I could show
her what I used to do and how we
used to celebrate Easter. When the
baby comes, I'll definitely do the
traditional Easter celebrations; the
big dinner, hiding the dyed Easter
eggs and dressing her up in beautiful
traditional Easter outfits. I want her
to have the whole thing."

Claire Rodriguez, Gulfport: "We haven't made any plans yet; usually go to my
sisters in Wesley Chapel and have dinner with her. We usually have about 10
people but my husband isn't sure he wants to go this year. It's a pretty long drive
but I think it's important to keep a sense of family because everybody's so busy
these days. I have a niece; she's 14 and every year I give her an Easter basket
because it's important for the kids to have a sense of family and continuity. We
always play crack the eggs at the dinner table; everyone picks the best egg with
the best color and then everyone tries to break everyone else's egg. My father was
Greek so I'm not sure if it's a tradition from his family or not. We call the game
the best egg-ceptional egg! This year I'll give my husband an Easter basket to
surprise him. I wish I could bake more like I used to but I can't anymore. I work
too much and have no time. So maybe I will be able to convince him to go and
visit my family. We usually have about 10 people so it is a lot of fun."

AtMtoroscoDe Guide

ARIES (March 21-April 19).
Relationships could use a new spark
of excitement. It may feel artificial
to introduce this on your own, but if
you wait around for circumstances
to change, you'll be waiting for a
very long, boring time. So put your
thinking-and-dreaming cap on, and
drum up some juicy adventure for
you and the ones you love.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Self-
esteem is ultimately up to you. But no
person is an island. The people around
you can make a huge difference in
the way you view yourself. When
someone else sees you as perfect and
loves you unconditionally, you'll start
to feel that this is true. This week
you benefit from the support of loved
GEMINI (iIl.l 21-June 21). The
world can be a harsh and shadowy
place. Make an extra effort to be
around wholesome and sweet stimuli.
Maybe it's the taste of fresh cinnamon
bread or the smell of baking apples
that puts you in the "life is good"
frame of mind. Or maybe it's that
laughing person with the dancing
CANCER (June 22-July 22). You'll
probably allow for more interruptions
and diversions than you normally
would, simply because there is so
much you have missed in the past
two weeks that is now demanding
your attention. It's nice to stop and
catch up every once in a while. By
Thursday you'll be back on track with
all of your responsibilities.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You know
that a relationship would be better if
a certain someone would adjust his or
her behavior. Loved ones will change
in their own good time. Concentrate
on yourself. You'll inspire others with
your commitment to being the best
person you can be. And before you
know it, the relationship is renewed.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22).

How comfortable are you with
nonconformity? You'll find out this
week, when you come across folks
who think that recipes are just
starting points for experimentation
and the lines in the roads are merely
suggestions as to where one could
drive if one so chooses. You'll fight a
good fight for order and decency.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You
have a way of unifying people. Your
communication skills are stellar.
And you know what the group needs
to do in order to arrive together at
a desired point in the future. This
week will be a learning process. You
will eventually figure out how to get
people as focused on team goals as
they are on their individual goals.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). This
week gives you a lot to consider.
New people and influences show
you options you never would have
considered a few weeks ago. By
Friday, you'll likely figure out that
you've had enough time to decide
on your course. Jump off the diving
board. Just do it. What you do will
matter -- that is, if you actually do
21). You'll be intent on your work,
but hopefully not so singularly
focused that you miss the peripheral
excitement. It's possible that the
distractions are more important than
the main focus. Though it is noble to
hone your talents, in the end you will
be judged not for your abilities, but
for your heart.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19).
You're happy with simple things,
but you also have your heart set on a
high-ticket item. Recognize the many
forms of abundance that are already
in your life. That will help you
figure out how you're going to make
the money to get this thing you're
thinking about. Remember that
money is an exchange of energy.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18).
Perfectionism can be a thief, robbing
you of new possibilities. When you
decide what "perfect" is, you are
placing limits on your future, thinking
only one way can be the best. Pay
attention to details only insomuch
that they excite you, challenge you
and give you greater appreciation of
truth and beauty.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The
poets and dreamers are the first
explorers of the world. The scientists
and builders always arrive later.
When things aren't happening easily,
take a step back. Your insistence on
tangible results may be premature.
Meditate and imagine, and then try
again. Let your spirit blaze a trail for
the rest of you to follow.
This Week's Birthdays: You were
endowed with talents and physical
attributes from birth -- you can
hardly take credit for that. But you
can take credit for how well you
use your gifts this year. You will be
honing a craft, and your diligence
will be rewarded this month. May
brings a new teacher. There will be
an audience to please in June -- and
please you will. A romantic bond
is established or re-established in
August. There will be more work in
September and a sound investment
opportunity, too.

died March 22, 2010. Born June 16,
1926 and raised in Ireland, he moved
to the US in his mid-20s and became

areas in the US for his retirement
years, Francis decided to move to
Gulfport and called it home. Soon
after, he discovered our local tavern
and made sure to attend social hour
on a regular basis. Many of us who
got to know Francis will miss his
humor, political discussions and his
flirtations with the ladies, "fair to
middlin' ". May you rest in peace.
Survivors include his sister Mary
McManus, Ireland, nephew James
McManus, Ireland and nieces Mary
Coleman and Barbara Brehoney of
Ireland. A graveside service will be
conducted on Friday, April 2, at 3

Additional Exemption
for Low Income Seniors
Dear Editor: I was amazed (and
ashamed) when I learned from
the Gabber's March 11 article
that Gulfport is one of only four
municipalities in all of Pinellas
County that doesn't offer the
additional homestead exemption
for low-income seniors. All of the
remaining 20 municipalities plus
unincorporated Pinellas do provide
The exemption allows an additional
reduction in property taxes to
homesteaders 65 and over with
current household income of less
than $25,780. I don't know when or
why Gulfport made the decision to
withhold this exemption, but I think it
should be reconsidered and quickly!
It's important and it's needed.
Gulfport has a reputation for being a
warm, caring community. And we do
offer a wonderful array of activities
and support groups for all of our
citizens young and old, rich and poor,
families and singles. We support the
arts and the environment. We have
great civic events and city services.

Actually, we do so many things right
that it's hard to understand how we
would be so out-of-step on the low-
income senior exemption.
Hey Council! Hey everyone! Time to
rethink this one!
Carol Davies-Steinke

Thanks for the
Dear Editor: We want to thank
whoever is responsible for fixing the
two fountains in Wood Ibis Park.
Someone had told us that the city
was out of funds for repairing them,
having already spent a great deal
of money on the maintenance of the
pond and its fountains this year. We
assumed they would be repaired in a
future budget year, if ever.
It was a very nice surprise, then, to
see them spouting again, illuminated
and prettier than ever! Another
source told us that a private donor
from Town Shores donated the funds
for repairing the fountains. I'm sure
there are many other fans of Wood
Ibis Park who would like to thank
whoever is responsible for bringing
back the fountains.

An Incompatible Policy
In earlier columns I complained
that it was ridiculous, even
stupid, to try jihadist terrorists
in civil courts. While recognizing that
some have been tried and convicted
there (i.e. Reid, the shoe bomber), I
reasoned that since we have gone to
war to fight the terrorists, the proper
venue is military courts.
However, the fact is we are going
to try terrorists in the civilian courts.
Attorney General Eric Holder told a
congressional committee a couple of
weeks ago that Osama Bid Laden is no
different than Charles Manson. His
approach was that these terrorists,
whether American or foreign, are no
different than street criminals. This
was the approach during the Clinton
administration ten years or more
What I am asking is that if this
is so, why are we trying to kill all
these guys? We sent troops into
Afghanistan to drive out the Taliban
and capture and/or kill any who
resisted. From the beginning in the
Bush administration until now, the
object has been to kill terrorists. Is
that really right?
We don't send police out on our
streets to kill suspected or even

known killers. Instead, we capture
and then try them. Some do get
killed in violent encounters with
police, but the police mission is not
to kill them. We don't send out hit
squads to pick them off. And, in cases
where the criminals are shot, there
are investigations to determine why
it was necessary.
The closest we have come to shooting
down criminals was in the 1930s when
there were nation-wide manhunts for
the likes of John Dillinger, Baby Face
Nelson, ( 'I\1.- Barrow and Bonnie
Parker, or members of the Barker-
Karpis gang. Dillinger did get gunned
down as did Barrow and Parker, but
the consensus was that there was no
alternative. Even at that, the "shoot
on sight" order was rarely a public
policy, or rarely a public fact.
Mafia operations, which have and do
their share of killings, were (and are)
conspiracies to subvert and break
our laws and eliminate that is,
kill opposition to their operations.
Yet, we never send hit squads to get
them. The drug cartels and drug
gangs which operate throughout this
country happily killing people when
necessary and destroying life after
life, are not the focus of police hit
squads. So, why are the jihadists?

Now, however, we not only are
directing missiles to assassinate
people we assume to be criminals
but some of whom may or may
not be directly involved in killings
here. Additionally, we have 60,000
troops (or is it more?) swarming
over Afghanistan on search and kill
missions. It's all indiscriminate.
Whoever gets killed gets killed.
We'd like to kill specific leaders, but
eliminating the group is ideal.
That policy is not compatible with
trying people in civil courts.

In just 28 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.
Mayor Walt Williams (1887-1957) and his
wife Inez, shown last week, were a most
important part of Gulfport. Walt was born
in North Carolina, but worked his way
south, arriving in Gulfport just in time
to point out the best location for a boat
landing to the developers who would bring
in the streetcar line. Inez was connected
through her nieces' marriages to almost
every branch of the town's first family.
The municipal pier is named after "Uncle"
Walt and his son Bert (1917-2001), also a
Gulfport mayor.

were full as kids lined up to
play. A few even rode the
Gyroscope and braved the
death- defying twisting and
turning. After a cold and nasty
winter, Gulfport was finally
able to celebrate Spring. the-

"Gus" Returns to
The Gulfport Community Players
will open a Jim Brochu comedy
entitled "Cookin' with Gus" at the
Catherine A. Hickman Theater of
Gulfport on Thursday, April 22 at
8 p.m. This play is a comedy with
non-stop action from start to finish.
Due to the many requests the Players
have had to do this play once again,
it finally returns to Gulfport. Besides
being a great comedy, it even has a
food fight!
The story line goes like this: Gussie
(Gus) Richardson is a famous food
columnist and cookbook author. Her
agent tells her she's been offered

her own daily network TV show.
She tries to do a taping and then
finds out that she has stage fright
and can't even open her mouth in
front of a camera. In spite of all
her friends trying to help her get
over this problem, nothing seems
to work. Bernie threatened her, one
of Gus's friends (Gypsy Carmen)
casts spells, and the her husband,
Walter, tries hypnotism. This seems
to work, but the actual taping turns
into a nightmare of comedy, errors,
and laughs!
The play will run from April 22
through May 2 at the Catherine
A. Hickman Theater of Gulfport.
Curtain times are 8 p.m. for
Thursday, Friday, and Saturday

Two if by Trolley

A week in the life of a public transportation passenger

By Cathy Salustri

"Weird," my father mumbles
as we wait for the #18 bus to
pick me up. "You lose your
license or something?"
I assure him I have not.
"Just weird," He mumbles.
My father, who, as a New
York native saw public
transportation as a necessity,
doesn't understand why I
want to take the bus when
I have a perfectly good
car. No matter how many
times I explain it to him,
he just shakes his head and
mumbles "weird."
As a child, my mother, also
a New York native, took the
bus to school. As an adult
she took the bus to work. She
took the bus to the city. When
I suggest she take the Beach
Trolley with me, she tells me
in no uncertain terms that
she's done taking buses.
"All those germs," she says.
My mother's germ-o-phobia
aside, I can see why she
doesn't want to take the
bus. I didn't, either, for a
long time. I took one before
I learned to drive and all
I remember is illogical
schedules and having to
transfer a bunch of times
before I got where I needed
to go, which inevitably took
an hour or more longer than
it would have in the car I so
longed to own.
This started out as an
article about riding the oft-
maligned Gulfport Trolley to
see how many people really
used it, but as I started
planning my trips I decided I
wanted to try traveling using
only public transportation.
I would park my car for
one week and see how hard
it was-or wasn't-to get
around using the bus.
Day One: I start my seven-
day public transit adventure
on a Saturday. I decide to
buy a week pass. One small

problem: I forgot to do this
before I started my self-
imposed car-lessness, so
I must first board the bus
to find a store that sells
I have punctuality issues,
so it comes as no shock to me
that I miss my first bus. This
is not an auspicious start,
but I can't blame the bus for
being on time when I am not.
The Beach Trolley comes
along every
30 minutes, "For safety
so I settle in small dome
small dome:
and wait.
When my allowed on
bus finally provided the3
arrives, I an enclosed
confirm with
the driver that I can't buy a
weekly pass from him. He
not only tells me where I can
get one, he says that since
I'm buying a weekly pass
when I get to my destination,
he won't charge me the $1.75
fare. Nice. I purchase my
pass for $20 I can ride any
bus in the county all week
Day Two: Grocery shopping,
I discover, becomes a lot
more economical when one
must carry one's purchases
on a bus. No matter; riding
the Beach Trolley is quickly
becoming my new favorite
thing to do. The seats are
actually comfortable, and
the drivers are practically
tour guides.
Day Three: I have a
dilemma: I have to pick up
papers from Gulfport city hall
and take an unexpected shift
at my other job no later than
9:50 a.m., and I'm not sure
I can do it. I momentarily
consider just getting in
my car -that would be the
easiest thing to do-but, at
the last minute, decide to
trust public transportation.
I meet the Gulfport Trolley
at 75th Avenue on the
beach and am surprised to



see people disembarking.
It's just past 8 a.m. and the
people getting off the trolley
are all dressed for work at
the Tradewinds.
Anyone who has ever praised
Gulfport's community and its
small-town feel would love
its trolley drivers. This route
is run by the city, who hopes
that PSTA (the Pinellas
Suncoast Transit Authority)
will see its success and make
it one
nd convenience, of its
tic animals are
DSTA vehicles Amanda,
are contained in m y
animal carrier." dr iv er,
her fares by name and where
they want to go. She knows
who recently quit smoking
and who has trouble with
their knees. I get the sense
that she is much more than a
driver to these regulars.
I ask her where I need to
get off and what time she'll
be back and she tells me all
these things, adding in that
if I'm not back in time she
will wait a few minutes for
Day Four: Today I take
my first transfer, taking the
Beach Trolley to 75th Avenue
and transferring to the 35,
which will take me to South
Pasadena and then onto the
bike shop on Central.
I assumed that PSTA didn't
allow dogs or cats or snakes
or sugar gliders on the bus;
only when I scoured their
web site looking for the
Google Trip Planner did I
find this:
"For safety and convenience,
small domestic animals are
allowed on PSTA vehicles
provided they are contained
in an enclosed animal
Even so, I expect the driver
to question me. He does not.
Calypso sees this as a grand

adventure. Taking a small
dog on the bus is amazingly
easy. The transfers go
flawlessly and my last driver
of the day asks if he can pet
Day Five: I'm riding
the Beach Trolley when I
notice a small boy with his
grandparents. They don't
seem to have a destination
in mind; rather, it's the
trolley ride itself that's the
attraction. The tiny blonde
boy sits on his grandmother's
lap, excitedly announcing,
"I saw the .il.-ii' when a
break in the resorts allows a
glimpse of the Gulf.
This is not the first time I
see small children riding the
Beach Trolley as a form of
entertainment rather than a
means to an end.
Day Six: I've gotten better
at getting to the bus stop
on time, but I'm still not
perfect. I find myself walking
to places rather than wait
another 30 minutes for the
next trolley. I also realize
that, at some point, I'm going
to have to do laundry and I
really don't want to bring my
lacy unmentionables on the
I also have to interview
whichever candidate wins
the Gulfport Ward One
election, so I board the
Gulfport Trolley and head
into Gulfport. I catch the
last trolley home, wishing
desperately for a shelter at
the ('lyinm.- Park stop as I
shiver in the wind. The driver
remembers me and knew to
look for me at the stop. He
asks me how things went at
Habana Caf6 and I offer him
my leftover shrimp.
Day Seven: I board the
Gulfport Trolley and transfer
to the 79 to get to The Gabber
office. I feel like an old hand,
knowing my route numbers
and where to pick up the
next bus. I even advise a

Gabber April 1 April 7, 2010

woman who wants to know where to
get off for the 79. My transfer stop
is sheltered, and it's a good thing
because it starts to rain while I'm on
my way to Gulfport.
I arrive at The Gabber early for our
Friday morning writer's meeting-the
first time that's happened in at least
a year. I reverse the process to get
home: Take the 79, then the Gulfport
Trolley home.
So what are the pros and cons
of taking public transportation in
Pinellas County? Well, bus travel
is much easier than when I was a
teenager. Google Trip Planner (found
at PSTA.net) tells you exactly what
bus to take and when and will base
your routes on either your desired
departure or arrival time.
However, when I first tried to use it
to get to Gulfport, I realized that the
much-touted Google feature didn't
include the Gulfport Trolley route
at all. Furthermore, to even see the
Gulfport Trolley route on PSTA's web
site you must download it as a pdf file
rather than view it as a web page,
as riders-or prospective ones-can
do with the other routes. Given that,
the 700+ riders the Gulfport trolley
carried last week are something of a
The drivers, too, are friendlier than
I remember from my teens (although
that might have had to do with my
being an obnoxious teenager than
anything else): with one exception,
every Beach Trolley and Gulfport
Trolley driver went out of his or her
way for passengers. Drivers don't just
answer passenger questions about
which bus to take, they share their
amazing wealth of local knowledge
with them. Want to know where
Sylvester Stallone lives? How about
where to get a good seafood dinner?
They can tell you. When the Beach
Trolley hits spring break traffic
going over the Memorial Causeway,
it is our driver who jokes and puts
a crowded bus at ease. These men
and women are perhaps some of the
best ambassadors of the beaches and
Gulfport their respective chambers of
commerce could hope to have.
Despite these things, riding the bus
isn't for everyone. It's not all writers,
tourists, and Tradewinds employees
on the bus: the bus carries its share
of drunks and other less-than-
contributing members of society. It
requires planning. Buses, despite

Gabber April 1 April 7, 2010

a mighty impressive collection of
technology, run late sometimes, and
when they do, connecting buses don't
always wait.
"The riders, they're the superstars
of this thing," one of the Gulfport
Trolley drivers tells me. "They have
to be like quarterbacks." I understand
exactly what he means, because
knowing where to go and how to get
there is a playbook all its own.
The trolleys and buses are cheap
if you use them frequently ($55 a
month for most, less for seniors and
school-aged kids and teens) and not
so bad for the occasional trip ($4 a
day or $1.75 per trip). Weekly passes
cost $20. All of these fares include
the Gulfport Trolley and other city-
run trolleys, like the Jolly Trolley.
I started my week wonde-ring if I
could really do every-thing I needed
while traveling via trolleys and buses
and found that yes, I can. Can you?
that depends. I know two men
who perform essentially the
same job in different parts
of Pinellas: one lives in the
Lakewood area and works in
St. Pete Beach. A 13-minute
car ride turns into an hour-
plus adventure that routes
him through downtown St.
Pete and involves three
different buses to get him
to the beach; he could \.Ik ,

Beach and works in
Clearwater. He takes
the Beach Trolley
and gets to work
in less time than it

I need to g.-1
to Gulfport
city council
every other
week and

Gabber offices every Friday morning,
and I travel to Dolphin Village on the
beach for my other job. The Beach
Trolley and the Gulfport Trolley both
have stops less than 100 feet from my
house, andtake me almost everywhere
I want to go.
While I would love to give up my car
and its $300-plus-per-month carrying
charges (payments, insurance, and
gas), I'm keeping it. I think the key
is in compromise: I'll keep the car
but take the bus or trolley when it's
practical. I can lower my insurance by
driving less and cut way down on fuel
costs, but I can't justify selling the
car. And while I'm not about to load
a week's worth of laundry on a bus,
but take the trolley to Clearwater to
see my mom and dad (who still think
I'm weird)?

Additional Exemption
for Low Income Seniors
If you are over 65, and received
the homestead exemption, you
may be eligible for an additional
property tax benefit. The Low
Income Senior Exemption is a "local
option" exemption, which means the
governing bodies of the county and
cities can choose whether or not to
offer it, and they can choose how
much of an exemption to offer, up
to $50,000. Currently, it is available
to qualified property owners in
unincorporated Pinellas and 20
of the 24 municipalities, and is in

addition to any other property tax
exemptions owners receive. Only the
county Municipal Services Taxing
Unit (MSTU) millage or the city
millage is exempt. Cities not offering
the exemption include Belleair,
Belleair Shore, Gulfport and South
To qualify, at least one homestead
property owner must be 65 years
old or older on January 1, 2010; the
applicant must receive a Homestead
Exemption; and the total household
income for 2009 must be $25,780
or less. Social Security income is
usually not included in that amount
because the income calculation is
based on "adjusted gross income"
as defined by the IRS for federal
income tax purposes. Those seniors
who are not required to file with the
IRS because their income is very low
almost always qualify.
This exemption does not
automatically renew like the
homestead exemption does, but
reapplying is simple. If you received
this exemption last year, a renewal
form will be mailed to you in late
January. Just complete the form and
return it by mail.
If you have never applied for the
Low Income Senior Exemption but
believe that you qualify, come to
one of their offices to complete an
application. Bring proof of age, such
as a driver License, Voter ID, or Birth
Certificate. We will also need to see
proof of income. If you are required
to file a Federal Income Tax Return
(Form 1040 or 1040A), bring the
completed form for 2009. If you are
not required to file an Income Tax
Return, bring income documentation
such as your end of year bank
statements, pension summaries, or
any other income summaries you
received for 2009. Only 2009 income
information can be accepted.
The supplement included with
Homestead Exemption Renewal
Receipt lists additional dates and
locations where representatives from
our office will take applications.
The deadline to file for this
exemption is March 1, 2010. If all
of your income information is not
available by that deadline, apply
anyway! The deadline to supply
income information is June 1, 2010.

Attorney Keith Sanders,

Handles Bankruptcies with Experi-

Y ou could say my
motto is 'been
there, done that',"
says Keith Sanders, from
Sanders Law, P.A.
He says that for two
reasons. First, he says
his more than 18 years
of experience as an at-
torney specializing in
handling "literally thou-
sands" of bankrupt-
cies 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 Chapter
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 situa-
tion 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
when I tell them how
embarrassing it was for
me to have to stand in
front of judges and col-
leagues who knew me
and go through the pro-
cess myself, that usu.

stand that I have been

"You know, in 99 per-
cent of bankruptcy cases
the situation is that bad
things happen to good
people. They have gone
through an expensive
health crisis or a divorce
or just got in over their
head with debt."
He began his career as
a staff attorney for the
U.S. Trustee in Atlanta.
He is licensed to practice
law in both Florida and
"I like what I do be-
cause I feel like I can
help people get a fresh
start," said Sanders.
"Since the initial con-
sultation is free, you re-
ally 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
solution for you.
Sanders has held a

number oi seminars ana
written professional pa-
pers concerning bank-
ruptcy law in general,
ECF requirements and
new issues. He is a
former director of the
Bankruptcy Section of
the State Bar of Geor-
The firm also handles
Short Sale negotiations,
defense against foreclo-
sures, wills & trusts,
and civil litigation.
Outside of the court-
room, Sanders lives in
an unusual home in
Gulfport that was one
of the featured proper-
ties in a recent Pink Fla-
mingo Tour of Homes. It
has a tree growing right
up through the floor and
up through the ceiling of
his kitchen. He has five

Relay For Life events are held
overnight as teams camp out at
an athletic track, beach, park or
other gathering area, with the
goal of keeping at least one team
member on the track or pathway at
all times throughout the evening.
Teams do most of their fundraising
prior to the event, but also hold
creative fundraisers at their camp
sites during the event. Relay

businesses, hospitals, schools, faith-
basedgroups... people from allwalks
of life all aimed at furthering the
American Cancer Society's efforts
to save lives by helping people stay
well, by helping them get well, by
finding cures and by fighting back.
"Relay is a unique opportunity for
the community to come together to
celebrate people who have battled
cancer, remember those we've lost,
and fight back against the disease,"
said Christine Hartman, Community
Representative of the American
Cancer Society. "Many of the
participants are cancer survivors,
which serves as a reminder that the
Gulf Beaches are not immune to this
disease and that by participating
in Relay, we are joining with the
American Cancer Society's efforts
to create a world with less cancer

Host Families Needed
for Exchange Students
Pacific Intercultural Exchange
(PIE) is a non-profit organization
looking for caring families to host
high school students from many
countries around the world. The
students are between 15 17 years
of age and will attend school for an

academic year or semester at your
local high school.
There is no such thing as a typical
host family. They accept single
parents, retired couples, families
with small children, teens or no
children at all! You can have a great
experience hosting an International
teen. The students are prescreened,
speak English and are looking
forward to learning about our
culture while teaching Americans
about theirs.
Students will have medical
insurance and their own spending
money to cover clothing, school
expenses, entertainment, etc. Host
families should provide not only a
loving home and food for their daily
meals, but also a quiet place to be
able to study and bedroom to rest.
Although host families are not paid,
one is eligible to claim a charitable
tax deduction of $50 per month for
every month the student is in the

Could you be ufferiin from vein disease without knowing i? One of three Americans over 45 years of age has some form
or vein disease in the legs--problems in the network or veins that carry blood back to the heart, Signs and symptoms may
seem harmless at first but minor problems can develop Into serious problems if left untreated.
Fortunately, early detection can prevent life threatening consequences.
HLY 4 dVrS .itJ- i.Ortin-m i bnrym t"? fininnu;r 'W
Veins with failed valves have trouble carrying blood from the legs buck to the heart. Blood pools in the veins below, and
they begin to dilute and leak. The first signs of vein disease are often tiredness. and a ht y. fryling in the Ies.7. This is a
ckear indication that the return fow of blood from the legs to the heart is impaired. You may find that the problem is
more pronounced after a day of prolonged sitting or standing. That's Ibeuase the leg veins are under higher presure
when you are upright, and they become enlarged by the pressure or the pooled blood. Some of these veins dilate on the
snrtrce and become the typical varicose veins and spider veins, but most are hidden inside the leg. As the wails of the
smaller veins become weaker, they start to leak Mldid. protein and blood cells Into the surrounding tissues. Patients often
begin to experience ankle swelling and even night cramps c( harley horses*'. When you lie down for a while, the swelling
may go down, But, chances are, the swelling will return the next day. The skin begins to sicken and becomes discolored.

Care Givers
Support Groups
Do you find yourself "caring" for
the health concerns of another?
If so, consider coming to one of
Pasadena Community Church's Care
Giver Support Groups in the Life
Enrichment Center at 227 70 Street
S. One group meets on Tuesday
evenings from 5:30-6:30 p.m. and
the other meets on Wednesdays from
9:30-10:30 a.m.
Both groups are open to the public
and provide a confidential setting
for those attending to share with
others who are in like situations
their experiences, joys and concerns
of "care giving". The person may be a
relative or just a good friend. It is not
necessary that the individual reside
in the same house with you or even
the same state.

Meals on Wheels
Needs Drivers
Volunteers are needed to deliver hot,
nutritious meals to the homebound
throughout Pinellas County.
Volunteering for the Neighborly
Meals on Wheels program is a hands-
on, front line experience. If you have
11/ hours midday to help in your
own neighborhood, you could help
improve someone's life and make a
real difference in this critical area
of need. Meals are picked up at a
site near you and delivered to the
homebound in your area (maps and
directions are provided).
Many Pinellas County seniors are
living alone, too poor to buy food,
or too frail to shop and cook for
themselves. And the need is growing
every day. Do someone else a favor
and you will be doing yourself one!
Neighborly needs compassionate,
caring volunteers to share their time
with lonely, isolated seniors. Please

Celebrating 250 Years of Married Life

Pictured (L-R): Jim Mazza, Bob & Marge Davis, Jerry & Joan McCaw, John & Sandy
Sainato, Joe DeMarco, Bob & Dede Buckley, Tootz & Tom Kelley and Florence MacNellis
Five couples living at Envoy Point in St. Pete Beach celebrated their 50th
wedding anniversaries on March 21. The wedding procession began with the
irreverent "Revered" Joe DeMarco and his assistant, "Rabbi" Jim Mazza with
90 year old Florence MacNellis serving as the ring bearer.
The brides presented their grooms with ball and chains and each couple
renewed their vows promising to stay together until "the money runs out".
When asked how they met, they answered "through a mail order catalogue",
"on a blind date", "as a stewardess and copilot on a flight to New York", "on
a train ride from Ann Arbor to Chicago" and "in high school". When asked
how these five couples accomplished the Miracle of 50, their answers were
both serious and humorous. "Love, patience, respect, open communications,
laughing at oneself, great children and friends, common goals and values"...
and "deafness, always saying yes to your wife" and as one husband put it "I
was just so easy to get along with, Dede decided to keep me".
The ceremony was followed by a wedding cake and reception with family
and friends and wishes of another 50 years of bliss.

PRAYER TO ST. JUDE This novena has
never been known to fail. This novena must be
said for 9 consecutive days. Publication must
be promised. Oh Holy St. Jude, Apostle and
Martyr, great in virtue and rich in miracles,
near kinsman of Jesus Christ, faithful inter-
cessor of all who invoke your special patron-
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
