Gulfport Hosts National
Multi Hull Regatta

fa -


By Leigh Clifton
Father and son sailing competitors Matt Lynch and his son Zachary rest
after finishing up a heat during the National Multi-Hull Championship
last weekend in Gulfport. Zach was the youngest competitor in the
competition. The duo finished ninth overall.
Once again, Gulfport has played host to the National Multi-
Hull Championships, a sailing competition that has put
Gulfport on the map as the destination for multi-hull racing.
Sponsoredby the Gulfport Yacht Club and the City of Gulfport,
the race drew 24 boats. The weather was cooperative, with a
nice wind of over 15 knots on all three days, although late
Saturday afternoon it just died out and racing was halted.
One local pair sailing was Matt Lynch and his 13 year old
son Zachary, See Regatta, page 6

Pump-Out at
Merry Pier
ST. PETE BEACH- Boats are
not allowed to discharge raw
sewage in coastal salt-water
and a pump-out station is the
most efficient way to remove
sanitary waste from boats.
The Merry Pier will get a
vessel sanitary waste pump-
out system at the end of the
dock. There are already pump-
out systems at Pass-a-Grille
Marina and Dolphin Landings.
"I think the nice thing it does
is, you get put on the map that
you provide these services,"
said Commissioner Beverly
The commission approved
funding for the project at its
April 13 meeting. Funding
of $22,195 comes 75 percent
from a state Department of
Environmental Protection
Agency grant and the rest from
the city budget. The Cairns
Corporation of Tampa, the
lowest qualified bidder, got the

who, as a driver was the youngest
sailor on the course. Matt and Zach
are from Treasure Island, but sail
out of Gulfport Yacht Club. Famed
Olympic sailor Robbie Daniels is
Zach's coach.
Said Matt, "We feel pretty lucky
that we can do this together as a
team; it's pretty cool! Zach's been
sailing since he was 10 years old
and this is so great for him. I keep
telling him how lucky we are to live
here. People save up their money
all year to come here for a two-week

vacation and we're lucky that we get
to do this every day."
On Friday, the first day of
competition, Matt's trapeze line
broke, sending him tumbling off the
boat. Zach had no idea his dad had
fallen off the boat. In an effort to
recover him, Zack flipped the boat,
essentially stopping it long enough
for Matt to get back on. They still
finished 8th in their race.
Because Zack is young, Matt hired
a safety boat to follow them during
their races as a precaution.
"But Zack did fine," his dad said, all
smiles. "This is such a good activity

Support Those
Who Help Others
Dear Editor: I loved last week's
article about It'I.'. -i' Heroes"
(April 8,2010 edition) where you
featured a wonderful couple,
Babbette and Tim Coppola. We are
certainly blessed to have them in our
community for all that they do for the
young people. I know that when self-
employed people, like Tim, take time
away from their business to help
others it can affect their income.
I want to go on record to say that
even though many of us can't put

the time or money into the many
worthwhile causes, we can at least
patronize our local businesses that
do and recommend them to others.
As a result, we can all help in one
way or another. I can also personally
recommend Tim Coppola's Tree
Service. I knew how important it
was to have my huge tree that covers
my entire house trimmed before
hurricane season and he and his

Parking Waiver
ST. PETE BEACH- For 35 years
the building at 432 75th Avenue
has served as a restaurant, first as
Bruno's and more recently as FIG.
The lack of outdoor dining kept
one prospective restaurateur from
renting the now available 2,216
square-foot site. The property owner,
Key Note Inc. decided to be proactive
and get the necessary approvals from
the city for eating outside, which
the commission gave at its April 13

Asking for the addition of six tables
on a raised wooden deck in a new
outdoor seating area means the
whole restaurant needs to be brought
into compliance of current parking
requirements. Adding the 540
square-foot deck means 28 parking
spaces would be needed and the site
only has five spaces. The outdoor
seating on its own would only require
six more parking spots.
Business owners in the Corey
Avenue area spoke for and against
the proposal. On one side was the
need for another good restaurant in
the area. On the other was concern

over limited parking and liability
concerns. With all expressing the
need for businesses in the area to
"When the (neighboring Christmas
shop) was concerned, we were
concerned, too. We saw person after
person parking in our spots. Of
course I want businesses to succeed,"
said Dr. Herbert Wollowick.
After a discussion the commission
okayed the outdoor dining use and
the parking waiver.
"I believe the measure we should
take, is what's in the best interest of
the city," said Mayor Mike Finnerty
said. "To me is a very difficult
location;... hopefully we can work
through the liability and parking

Jack Pribyl, Student Services
Counselor, St. Pete: "I have both
a yes and a no answer. Yes, I think
tenure should be eliminated. I was
in a private school where no one had
tenure and no one was afraid of losing
their job. Each teacher had a year
contract; after the year, the teachers
who were good, stayed, the ones
that were not so good were given an
opportunity to do better or they left. As
to the pay rate issue, no, I don't think
that teacher's pay should be based on
student achievement, because there
are just too many variables. You
might get a great group of kids or
get a bad group that has emotional
problems. If the kid comes from a
home where education is not valued,
it is extremely difficult for a teacher
to be effective. Some schools have a
higher degree of training difficulty;
they may not score as high but it will
still affect the outcome for teacher's
salaries. Also, how do you grade school
administrators and counselors? How
would this bill affect those people
who are a part of the school system
but have no direct contact with the
students? Will there be a different set
of standards for vocational schools
that don't have an FCAT, but do have
certification programs; how will they
be graded? I think most teachers do
a good job and want their students
to be successful. But the reality is
we all have limits, whether physical
or emotional. Certain students won't
be able to test well and to have that
reflect in a teacher's pay seems to be
defeating the purpose. I think the bill
should be vetoed."

Gabber April 15 April 21, 2010

Courtney Kreuziger, nursing
student, Clearwater: "It's a bad
idea because teachers go to school
to become teachers for a reason;
to teach and educate students so
that they can graduate and lead a
productive life. There are a small
minority across the board of students
who, no matter what you say or do
or teach, will follow their own way
and not the way of an authoritative
figure. They just won't or can't learn,
for whatever reasons. I'm not saying
there's no hope for these kids, just,
with this bill, the teacher will be
penalized for those students who
don't want to or have any interest
in learning. The quality of teachers
will definitely go down. The high
rate of unemployment and the lack
of incentives for teachers would
translate into a decline of the school
system, which is already suffering
from cutbacks. Who in their right
mind would want their income to
be based solely on test scores? Some
students will not show up to school,
some just don't test well. Students
learn on a varied scale; not all learn
at the same rate. I wouldn't want my
family's income to be dependent on
what my student's test scores are.
And if I'm a diligent teacher and they
still test poorly, does that make me a
bad teacher? I don't think so. That's
not the way to get better teachers in

Michael Landes, teacher, St.
Pete: "No, I don't think he should
sign this bill; we need to raise the
level of education, not decrease it by
taking money away from teachers.
The teachers are the future of the
students and their pay should not
be based on how well the students
do on some test. It's not fair to
assess what amounts to a penalty
when the teacher may have some
students who are unable to perform
academically. There may be factors,
such as home life, that can directly
affect a student's ability to take a
test accurately. Should the teacher be
blamed for that? That's what would
happen if a teacher were to just teach
to a test standard. Modification and
accommodation just is not fair to
all students. The fact that a teacher
would have to modify the curriculum
for different students does not
speak to the learning potential of
those students and their potential
progress. Just passing a student
through the system is not preparing
them for the practical application of
their education in the workplace."

The Treasure Island Art Guild
members bring another colorful
show to our Community Center
through mid-May. Todaylintroduce
the works of Joseph Martin, Theo
Janae and Grace Murdock, saving
those of Ray Vaillancourt and
Grace Roth for next time.
The digital photo-art of Jospeh
Martin continues to win awards and
to please his viewers. He captures
the beauty and excitement of
both "Sailing Races" and "Regatta
Races" but uses very different
treatment for each. Joe's muted
colors in "The Beach" please the
eye as does his bold handling of the
three beautiful and energetic birds
in "Egrets."
Theo Janae is challenged to catch
her model's personality in her
watercolor portraits. A regular at
our weekly Portrait Workshops,
she has chosen two charming grey-
haired women, "Bette" and "Sarah,"
and two young boys, "Nick" and
"Josh," who might well be their
grandsons. The viewer is bound to
smile at "Josh's impish expression.
Versatile Grace Murdock brings
us an acrylic, "Hibiscus La France
In the ('hlui', by.,',," and two
more classical landscapes in rich,
beautiful colors: "Fire Eater" in
mixed media and "Dreams Of Back
Home" in watercolor collage. Grace
then surprises the viewer with a
lovely, delicate watercolor, "Iris

By Melissa Lattman
City of St. Pete Beach
Q: Why doesn't the City of St. Pete Beach have a dog park?
A: Currently the nearest dog parks are in Gulfport or Fort DeSoto. City
Manager Mike Bonfield said he would speculate the reason for not having
a dog park is the city does not have a lot of vacant land. The few places
the city has considered for dog parks were relatively small and when dog
park sites were proposed more people opposed them than favored them,
he said.
Bonfield said he has heard unofficial talk that a dog park could be added
to Egan Park. The park located at 9101 Blind Pass Road has ball fields,
tennis courts and fishing. The city recently acquired 0.75 acre of land south
of the park. Bonfield said he heard some informal discussion that when the
ball fields are redone, a dog park could be added to Egan Park, as well.

Stroke Prevention


1. Stroke/Carotid Ultrasound ............................................................................................ $35
This test visualizes build-up of plaque in the carotid arteries that may lead to stroke.
Strokes are associated with carotid blockage. 50% have no warning signs.

2. Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA) ............................................................................... $35
95% of ruptured AAA's result in death. The majority of victims have no symptoms.
3. Arterial Disease (PAD) Test ............................................................................................$35
Ultrasound Doppler is used to detect poor circulation due to blockage in the extremities. An abnormal PAD test
is a strong indicator of heart disease.
4. Thyroid Ultrasound ...................................................................................................... $35
Scan to rule out cysts, nodules, goiters and tumors.
5. Abdominal Ultrasound ..................................................................................................$85
Helps identify cancers of the liver, pancreas, kidneys, spleen, gallstones, kidney stones and more.
6. Heart Scan Echocardiogram ...................................................................................... $95
Screening to view wall motion, valves, enlargements, calcifications, stenosis, prolapse, blood clots,
tumors and fluid around the heart.
Complete Evaluation (All 6 Ultrasounds) ............................................................................ $169
Q. How accurate are these health screenings?
A. Our adherence to stringent protocol, highly trained sonographers, state-of-the-art ultrasound machines, and
board certified interpreting radiologists make the screenings exceedingly accurate. Physician written protocols
ensure consistency and accuracy.
Q. Why should I have these tests if I have no symptoms?
A. It is important to have a screening to identify problems before symptoms arise, potentially avoiding a serious
health crisis. Unfortunately, our body's warning signs often come too late.
Q. Does my doctor do these tests as part of my routine checkup?
A. Most physicians can only prescribe ultrasound tests if you are already having symptoms, not for prevention
reasons. Prevention Plus is here to identify disease before a problem occurs.
No Prescription necessary. These test are not included in routine physical.
www.StrokeTesting.com Ultrasound can find smaller & more
M curable cancers, before you have symptoms
Board-certified physician reads all tests and only registered sonographers perform exams.

ItStoroscoDe Guide

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Initially,
you might be miffed when higher ups
demand more of you this week. Or it
could be a family member or teacher
who is unsatisfied with your current
level of production. You'll quickly
move past your first reaction and get
to work. You'll make 'em proud as
you step it up and do more than you
thought you could.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You're
confident, so trust yourself and your
instincts. Do things when you think
of them. Follow this adage on small
and big matters. You might believe
your intentions will ripen if you give
them time, but in fact, everything
becomes more difficult and labored.
Think and then act -- with minimal,
if any, lag time in between.
GEMINI (clI.ny 21-June 21). You
often hear others repeat the words
of politicians and entertainers. You
read cliched e-mail forwards and are
privy to mundane workplace banter.
So when a fresh voice pipes up in
your world, you take notice. Embrace
those who express themselves with
great originality, and be such a
person yourself.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). A
relationship has problems -- but only
if you choose to see it that way. What
if you decided that the relationship
is perfect? What if you looked at
it as though it couldn't possibly be
improved upon? Imagine that it
would be ruined by any addition,
subtraction or change. Maybe there
is more to love than you thought.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). There's a
fine line between putting yourself in
the line of inspiration and just goofing
off. Only you can tell exactly where
the line is, but it's somewhere past
the first wave of guilt that indicates
you should not be allowing yourself to
have so much fun, but before the fifth
wave of guilt, which is bringing you
the truth.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). An overly
self-involved person will interest
you. This type has a magnetism born
from hours of active self-interest.
You might find yourself craving this
person's attention, but be careful.
Resist being snagged into the orbit of
someone who cannot see you or love
you the way you deserve to be seen
and loved.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Your
loved ones will do whatever you
ask of them, primarily because you
never ask anything of them. You
would prefer they respect you as
an independent person. So when a
friend or relative wants to use your
network and ask favors of your loved
ones, you feel protective. It seems
unfair. Act on your feelings.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21).
You usually find your way into the
spotlight. However, this week it's
being occupied by one of your nearest
and dearest. You'll feel proud to be
in the "audience." Just remember not
to cause any commotion. Your loved
one should have the full attention of
every witness of this important life
21). You don't have to be a poker
player to know that it's important
to hold your cards close to the vest.
Talking too freely will leave you
open to distraction, obstruction and
unwanted input. Stay guarded, and
keep your plans and all relevant
details to yourself. The mystery is
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19).
You'llbe slightly more expressive than
usual this week. Your reactions to the
ups and downs of life may surprise
you. No one will be offended by your
exuberance. Nor will they be put out
by the displays of disappointment.
The way you experience life is valid
and a sign that your humanity is
very much intact.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18).
Before a bird learns to fly, it gets
pushed out of the nest a few times. So
you might say the first flying lessons
are really about how to fall and not
get too hurt. It's something to keep
in mind when this week brings you a
nudge out of the nest of your comfort
zone. By Thursday, you'll find your
wings and take to the air.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20).
There's a temptation to peek into
intriguing situations to which you're
not technically invited. A little
harmless meddling and tampering is
irresistible mischief, especially when
you have a partner in crime -- like
a lighthearted Gemini who sees the
potential for entertainment in all
This Week's Birthdays: Like an
elementary school student back from
summer break, your excitement will
be high going into this new phase of
your life. The personal breakthrough
you anticipate will happen quickly --
before the end of May. Keep working
and believing. There's a financial
boost in June. Use it well, and there
will be another in August. Family
will open doors for you, but it's up to
you to use the opportunity to become
independently successful. See more of
the world in October. Scorpio figures

Relay for Life Draws a
Small, Dedicated Crowd
By Leigh Clifton
The annual Relay for Life was held
last weekend in Gulfport and a small
but dedicated crowd showed up to
raise much needed funds for cancer
research. Comprised of survivors,
family, friends and everyday people,
the walkers set up tents on the green
behind the Rec Center as home base
camps where those not walking could
rest and wait for their shifts. Each
team had one person on the field at
all times.
Local musicians, including Pete
and Dean, entertained the walkers
with music and when they took a
break, DJ Ward Hemmond took the
helm spinning 80s favorites. The
group "Steppin' for a Cure" baked
cupcakes topped with pink breast
cancer ribboned- icing, selling each
for a dollar. Stetson had several
teams, including Rebels for a Cure.
Walker Tracy Rich was enthusiastic
about raising the money for such a
good cause.
This is such a great cause," she
said, "and I don't mind staying up for
24 hours if I can help someone else
out by doing it."
Mayor Mike Yake's team of "Team
Beat It!" had a big tent set up with
water and food and the Mayor
himself, decorated with a painted
pink ribbon on his cheek, walked
with folks around the grass track.
"This is such a great cause," he said.
Pulling up his sleeve, he revealed
a port still stuck in his arm. "I just
came straight from the hospital so

I could be here to see all of this. I

Look around you; these people are
here to help others. I think that's
what Gulfport is really all about!"
Relay team members Regina
'1.. \ -la Carole Gambrio and Phyllis
Marcum were all smiles as they
walked with a setting sun behind
them. All three agreed that the relay
was a great cause and felt they could
finish the whole thing without too
much trouble.
Newly minted Councilman David
Hastings, an oral cancer survivor
himself, walked the track with
other survivors. He is responsible
for bringing to Gulfport the free oral
cancer screenings in the Walgreens'
parking lot on May 8th-10th.

In all, there were 28 teams
participating and over $14,000.00
was raised for cancer research. Job
well done, Gulfport.

So met/ltn oH my maid
i By Bill Northrop B_Northrop@theGabber.com

L yet's try something light
instead of heavy topics such
as teacher's tenure, health
bills, cap and trade and a hundred
other things that claw at us. This is a
story that reminds of why we live in
Florida, or at least come here in the
winter. It's a true story told to me
last week by my family physician, a
respected internist in Washington,
Like most of the East and Northeast,
Western Pennsylvania had a tough
winter. Not only was it cold, but the
snow just kept coming. I know that
in December, when we were there, it
snowed in some small way daily and
temps didn't get above freezing. It
got worse. The Big Snows came.
Harry lives in a rural area and
with snows of two feet, travel was
nearly non-existent. Snow shoveling
was a blood sport. That was all right

* Comprehensive Eye
Health Examination
* Children's Vision Care
* Dry Eye Care
* Cataract & Glaucoma
* Drivers License Exams


with Harry. He's an outdoorsman,
a hiker and climber and all around
physical fitness buff. "Eventually,"
he said, (I'm paraphrasing) "I
realized I wasn't going to beat the
snow and that I might as well enjoy
how beautiful it was. And, it was
beautiful." I could visualize the
scene: cold, white, beautiful and
magnificently quiet.
So, he took it all in. There was only
one problem. They (he and his wife)
had no electricity and therefore no
heat and no light. Well, that's only
a minor challenge for a man well
prepared. Twenty years ago, he
anticipated something like this and
had a plan. Let's call it plan A. He
went to the shed and got a kerosene
It is portable, sits firmly on the
floor, has an adjustable wick, and
requires only a match to light it.

Vision Correction
without Surgery
Optical Department
Convenient Hours
Including Evenings
SDisposable We Accept Most
* Colors Insurance Plans
* Corneal Refractive ec
Board Certified
* Bifocal lI tometric Physicians

Voila! Heat and light. Well, maybe,
but not if the heater is rusted out.
It collapses when moved. But that
was o.k. because Harry was more
prepared than that. He had a
generator. That's a better solution
Well, maybe. Try as he might,
he couldn't get it started. He
remembered that he faithfully
tested it regularly when he got it,
but maybe time went faster than
he thought. Like maybe ten years
faster. So, that left him, the well-
prepared, with plan B.
Plan B was an in-house, in chimney
inserted wood burning heater. Out
to the wood pile and a good supply
of old wood. Emphasis on the "old",
and we should add, "wet". By this
time, he said, his wife was saying
things like "three stooges show",
or something equally encouraging.
Not discouraged, Harry found some
charcoal lighter fluid and more
matches and the wood yielded its
heat. At last part of the very chilled
house now was at a more comfortable
60 degrees. However, keeping the
fire going was a challenge and each
re-start required more lighter fluid.
No problem, there was another can
in the shed.
The fire re-started all right, but the
new can of lighter fluid crumbled in
his hand right next to a roaring fire.
Dashing for the door with kerosene
dripping a trail behind him, Harry
expected a following trail of fire.
Good luck, this time. No trail of fire.
Now, the trick was to keep the fire
roaring all the time. That worked
too, except that the flue fell or
melted off. There it was red-hot in
the center of the fire, retarding the
heat. It had to come out.
Again, wellprepared, Harry grabbed
his heavy, all-purpose leather gloves
and with the help of fire tongs lifted
the flue out. He grabbed it with his
gloves, and headed for the door.
Oops. It burned through the gloves,
he dropped the flue and it fell on
the rug, dissolving the fibers. With
that Plan B dissolved and his wife
declared, "we're out of here". The
snow shoveling efforts did pay off in
the long run.
The electricity was off for a week.
Doesn't Florida look good? At least
until hurricane season.

In just 26 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.
Until quite recently Markham's real estate
office at 5433 Shore Boulevard looked
much as it did when Edwin Markham
came here in the mid 1930s. Only steps
s away from the Gulfport Fish and Game
Club, it's not surprising it became a good
place to show off the catch. On the left is
Jack Fuller, Jay Auble is sitting down, and
Markham himself stands at the right.

You & THE

LAW, ,

By Robert J. Myers, Esquire
The Real Estate Buyer's
Legal Checklist
One of the single largest
investments of your lifetime may be
when you purchase a home or some
other type of real estate. In many
cases, your entire life savings could
be invested and potentially at risk.
As a result, it is very important
that any prospective purchaser of
real estate proceed with a certain
amount of caution.
The first document that a potential
buyer of real estate will encounter is
the Real Estate Purchase And Sale
Agreement. This document is one of

the most important papers you will
sign in a real estate transaction. The
details contained in this agreement
determine what real property you
will buy and how you will buy it.
What is in this agreement also
establishes what your rights and
responsibilities are in the upcoming
real estate transaction.
The following is a brief checklist of
items which should be considered by
a buyer of real estate:
1. What exactly are you purchasing?
Are land, buildings and personal
property included as part of the
2. When will you be entitled to take
possession of the property? Will the
current owners need time after the
closing to move out of the property?
Can you live with this?
3. What kind of deed should the
seller of the real estate give you?
Should it be an agreement for deed, a
quitclaim deed or a warranty deed?
4. Will the seller provide you with
good, marketable title?

Window Washing
* Interior windows Cleaned
* Exterior Windows Cleaned a_
* Screens removed & Cleaned u" s'
* Window Tracts Cleaned h. "
* Window Parts Lubricated. .

5. Who is responsible for the
payment of real estate and other
taxes? Will they be prorated?
6. What persons should be required
to sign and accept the real estate
contract and closing documents?
Is it necessary for both a husband
and wife to sign the documents?
Who should sign the documents if a
corporation is involved in the deal?
7. What are the zoning or other
restrictions on the use of the real
8. Are water, mineral or timber
rights involved in the sale of the real
estate? Have they been properly
covered in the agreement?
9. In what time frame does the
purchase offer need to be accepted
or refused? Are there certain
contingencies in the real estate
contract which require satisfaction
prior to the contract becoming
effective and legally enforceable?
10. Who pays for the costs of title
insurance, property inspection,
intangible tax on the mortgage,
documentary stamps and the broker
These are but a few of the questions
which should be answered before you
sign a real estate agreement. Only
then will you know if the real estate
purchase you are contemplating will
truly meet your needs.

Sey By Cathy Salsri

Just got off the phone with
of the first friends I made in
Gulfport. For him, life is about
community. He's so exuberant about
the idea that it made think about the
Gulfport community. When I first
moved to Gulfport, I wasn't looking
for community, but it was there all
the same, and it impressed me.
Now, though, I wonder if Gulfport
may be losing its sense of community,
and it makes me sad. For those of
you who don't follow local politics,
let me back up.
Last week Margarete Tober
appealed to council. This is not
news; she attends almost every
council meeting and clearly puts
a lot of effort into understanding
the issues. More so, it seems, than
certain council members at certain
times. At Tuesday night's meeting,
she asked council to please "bring
to a close the matter of the city
attorney position." This, too, is not
news: anyone paying attention
and aware of how volatile council
meetings can get probably wants an
attorney permanently ensconced on
the dais, if for no other reason than
to protect their property taxes from
skyrocketing due to lawsuits.
No residents are suing Gulfport.
Yet. But it could happen any time,
as self-proclaimed "common citizen"
Al Davis intimated at Tuesday's
meeting. Actually, I think he
suggested that his attorney might
sue individual council members
Michele King and Sam Henderson
for slander. After having his address
to council, Mr. Davis and his wife
left the meeting.
Which comes back to community.
Because something has gone
horribly wrong when members of
the community have so much anger
that they threaten lawsuits, or when
council members won't respond to
those people because they are so leery
of an attack. When council meetings
get so charged with hate, it's hard
to remember that Gulfport fancies

itself a "waterfront Mayberry" with
"small town charm" or any number
of positive things.
I'm not saying Michele King and
Sam Henderson are right and I'm
not saying that Al Davis wrong. Ms.
King hasn't displayed generosity
of spirit with the Davis', but I can
quote Mr. Davis' allegations about
her just as quickly. That's my point:
if someone were to judge this city
by the way people behave at council
meetings lately, they'd dismiss the
idea of a community in this town as
crap and move to Sanibel instead.
If we used council meetings as a
metric, our idea of a community is a
place where nobody trusts anybody
or listens to one another; where
people always have their guard up.
Is that how you want the world to
see your community?
I moved to Gulfport by chance; I
wanted to live by the water and had
a large dog. I found an apartment
two blocks from the bay that allowed
large dogs, and it happened to be in
Gulfport. Total coincidence.
One Thursday my downstairs
neighbor brought me a copy of The
Gabber, a paper I had, in my former
life, bought advertising in but never
actually read. I sneered at weekly
community papers and the idea of
community. I didn't need community.
I needed food on the table and a way
to pay the power bill.
And still The Gabber sat around
for a week, as I think you all know,
it tends to do, and I started flipping
through it. I saw a notice that the
Gulfport Community Players needed
help. I volunteered. And I met Frank,
Ron, Jovanna, Judy, Miki, Carol,
and a whole host of other people who
welcomed me into their community
without question.
Seven years later, that's still how
I see Gulfport: a welcome without
question. It's a place where anyone
can come for a safe haven or new
beginning. It's a town where people
disagree but, when it matters most,
people look out for each other.

But not at council. It seems that
elected officials are so bogged down
by conflict that they don't govern
anymore. Important city business
-like hiring an attorney-gets
ignored. Certain segments of the
populace feel like it's their job to
attack council, and while I believe
that council must withstand more
scrutiny than those they serve, it
saddens me to see such hateful
undercurrents in a city prides itself
on community.
I won't deny that I empathize
with city staff and elected officials,
but I also empathize with folks like
Ms. Tober, who speak intelligently
without denigration or accusation
and often get ignored anyway.
I cannot, however, muster any
empathy for those who tear at this
city with threats and bullying, no
matter what side of the dais they sit
or stand. When they treat council
meetings like battles, they slaughter
the foundations of this community.
I'm not saying people shouldn't
speak out. The right to participative
government is one of America's
capstones. But there's no need for
this level of discord.
So I beg both sides, before it gets
any worse, before the city hires an
attorney because it must and not
because it should, take the first step.
Be the bigger person. I'm not asking
you to give up your ideals. I do ask
this: who of you will be first to call
the other and say, "I don't want to
fight anymore. I disagree with you,
but I respect your position in this
city. How can we work together?
How can we end this war?"
I know both sides feel attacked
and both sides believe they're right.
I'm sorry, but that doesn't matter;
your community is watching you.
Community matters. Gulfport
matters. Your town is not against
you and you are not against it, yet
look at the legacy you're leaving- one
of bitter hatred and threats.
How great for Gulfport if instead
you left a legacy of understanding.
Oh, I'm not suggesting we all sit
in a circle and hold hands. I'm
suggesting that your love for this
community will allow you to do the
hardest thing of all: set down your
anger and righteousness and forge
ahead... together.

Sweeping the Beach


By Melissa Lattman
Cindy Hislip of Brandon walked back and forth on Upham Beach Saturday
morning listening and looking for what lie hidden in the sand with the aid of
her metal detector. For her the three hours on the beach meant exercise and
maybe enough change to cover her parking at the nearby beach lot, Hislip
"It's just basically exercise and kind of fun. It's digging, bending, squatting.
You get soar using muscles, kind of like when gardening," Hislip said.
Hislip said to find more valuable items usually means going in the water,
because that's when items like rings or bracelets tend to slip off of people. She
said once she did dig down to a jagged can inches from where a little girl was
making a sand castle. If the child would have scooped in the sand it would
have cut her, Hislip said.
"I'm not going to find anything that is going to blow anybody's socks off. I find
flip flops," Hislip said.
Spring break is the best time of year to go metal detecting. People, who are
really into it, scout out where people are sitting and come back later to see
what's left behind, Hislip said.
A little closer to the water Ty Heston of St. Petersburg walked and sorted the
items he found. Sea glass in one pocket, pull-tabs in another.
"It's a good community service. People don't want glass and fish hooks in
the sand," Heston said. "I thank God for each day and I want to trust Him in
everything. If I find anything it's because the Lord led me to it."

Boating Classes

USCG Auxiliary Flotilla 7-16
Gulfport at 3120 Miriam Street S.
(behind the Gulfport City Marina)
is now offering a variety of boating
classes including multi-lesson
courses and one day boating seminar
courses. If you are interested in an
exciting, in-depth boating safety
course, the BS&S is their most
popular course.
Boating Skills and Seamanship
(BS&S) start any Thursday 7:30-
9:30 p.m, 13 week revolving course,
$40 for materials. Sailing Skills and
Seamanship (SS&S) and Weekend
Navigator (WN) will be offered on
Tuesday nights when enough people
have signed up. For information,
email auxgulfport@yahoo.com or
call Leonard at 686-6940.
They also offer one-day seminar
courses including About Boating
Safety (ABS) which meets the
minimum requirement for a new
FL Safe Boating ID card, GPS for
Mariners (GPSFM), How to read
a Nautical Chart (HRNC) and
Suddenly in Command (SIC). These
courses vary in price and will be
offered on Saturdays when enough

Gulfport's Free Oral
Cancer Screening
The City of Gulfport, in conjunction
with the Oral Cancer Foundation,
will be hosting a free Oral Cancer
Screening on Saturday, May 8 from
10 a.m. 2 p.m. at the Walgreen's
parking lot on the corner of 58th St.
S. and Gulfport Blvd. S. in Gulfport.
This event was spearheaded by
Councilman David Hastings through
his experience with fighting oral
cancer and being a survivor.
Oral cancer belongs to the head
and neck cancer group, and is often
Gabber April 15 April 21, 2010

referred to by other names such as
tongue cancer, mouth cancer, tonsil
cancer, lip cancer, and throat cancer.
While some people think this is a
rare cancer, it is not. Approximately
100 people in the U.S. will be newly
diagnosed with oral cancer each day,
and it takes a life in the U.S. every
hour of every day.
The key to reducing the death rate
of oral cancer is earlier detection,
and the key to that is for all adults
to receive opportunistic oral cancer
examinations at least once a year.
Tobacco users, heavy alcohol users,
and those with a prior history of

cancer should be examined more
frequently. Even people who do
not share those traits should be
examined annually in light of the
mounting evidence of a link between
oral cancer and the sexually
transmitted human papilloma virus
(HPV type 16).
This event is co-sponsored by the
City of Gulfport and the Oral Cancer
Foundation. To learn more about
oral cancer go to www.oralcancer.org
on the web. For event information,

Attorney Keith Sanders,

Handles Bankruptcies

You 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-

ally hel

"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

The firm also handles
Short Sale negotiations,

sures, wills & trusts,

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
dogs and a cat.

City Requests More landscaping at Bank site
ST. PETE BEACH- Architects showed updated plans with more landscaping
in front at a proposed new bank at Dolphin Village. The City Commission
approved building facade design, landscaping, lighting, and building placement
and environmental plans for the proposed new Chase Bank. The approval was
a condition of the site plan amendment requested by the commission at its
March 23 meeting.
After the March 23 commission meeting a couple of other issues came up
in conversation with citizens, commissioners said concerning landscaping and
sidewalks. The applicant will allow an easement for possible future sidewalk
improvements and undergrounding utilities. The applicant will reimburse
the city for up to $3,000 for street furniture on the property, Community
Development Director Karl Holley said.
Chris Kirschler of BDG Architects showed a wider landscape buffer in the
front with the building back a bit more. To keep with the original planned
Dolphin Village design the building will be a warm yellow tone with Bahamas
style shutters and a metal roof.
There will be palm elements along Gulf Boulevard, which allows a view
through and creates an aesthetic site. On the east side to separate from the
existing retail there will be evergreens and shade trees. All the species are
highly salt tolerant, said Landscape architect Robert Finnegan.

Deadline for Homebuyer
Tax Credit Nears
If you've been thinking about
buying your first home and want to
take advantage of the federal first-
time homebuyer tax credit of up to
$8,000 you'll want to act quickly.
Eligible buyers must buy or enter
into a binding contract to buy on or
before April 30, 2010, and close on
the home by June 30.
To help finance the home, a mortgage
program from the Housing Finance
Authority of Pinellas County could
be the key to homeownership for
first-time homebuyers. The Home
Key First Mortgage Program is for
individuals who have never owned a
home, have not owned a home in the
last three years, or for veterans. The
program is available in Pinellas, Polk
and Pasco counties. The interest
rate for the 30-year fixed interest
rate mortgage is just 5.175 percent.
In Pinellas County, down payment
and closing cost assistance is
available through the Home Key
Second Mortgage Program. Up
to $6,500 is available at 0 percent
interest. The second mortgage is
deferred until the home is sold,
transferred or refinanced.
According to Anthony Jones,
executive director of the Housing
Finance Authority, "The down
payment assistance and the federal
tax credit may provide first-time
homebuyers the opportunity to
achieve homeownership that might
otherwise not be possible."
For more information on getting
the key to homeownership, call (727)
464-8210 or visit the website at www.

Public Comment

& Council Quotes

"We always have quite a crowd there."
-Mayor Mike Finnerty, on the Pinellas Public Library Cooperative's 20th
anniversary. Mayor Finnerty praised the city's excellent library and its

"In order to grant a wish, the average cost is $7,000."
-Sean McQuaid, for the Suncoast Make-a-Wish Foundation on having a
Beach Walk for Wishes at The Tradewinds Islands Resort on May 15 with
registration at 8:30 a.m.

"We want to make this utility self sufficient."
-Rob Ori of Public Resource Management Group, on the reclaimed water
sufficiency and rate study. He shared a six-year plan with options to make
the reclaimed water system self-sufficient including setting aside money
for capital improvements to the system. Voters approved the creation of
the reclaimed water system in 1992, which now has 2,958 connections in
the city. About 80 percent of the city uses the system. Currently $11.50 is
the monthly rate for single-family residents.

"I am a little uncomfortable charging somebody for something they
are not using."
-Commissioner Jim Parent, on a proposed possibility of charging everyone
in the city for reclaimed water because hookups exist throughout the city.
Another option discussed was raising current user rates.

We could have beer and hamburgers and raise the flag and the
whole nine yards"."
-Paul Pfister, on putting together a community fundraising event possibly
on the 4th of July to help offset litigation and other city costs.

"Sometimes its very hard to read these things in black and white,"
- Commissioner Marvin Shavlan on asking for color copies of plans to
better see what is on a diagram, because photocopies of color diagrams
can be difficult to read.

"Please start sending more packages to Afghanistan,"
-a U.S. soldier, a request Mayor Finnerty read from a soldier stationed in
Iraq for the Saint Pete Beach Support Our Troops to send more packages
to soldiers in Afghanistan. A list of requested items is on the city Web

Egmont Key: Escape Into History

By Cathy Salustri
"Anythin'for a quiet life, as the man said when he took the
situation at the lighthouse" -Charles Dickens

TH A .In 1757 the Spanish Royal Fleet, led
W ..by the explorer Don Francisco Maria
Cell, stopped at a small island in Tampa Bay on their
way up the Hillsborough River. Less than a century later,
the British visited and named that island after the Earl
of Egmont, and while the British flag never flew over the
island (the Spanish kept hold of the island until ceding
Florida to the US in 1821), the name remains.
Signaling the entrance to Tampa Bay, Egmont Key still
welcomes ships. In 1848, the government built a lighthouse
there, and 50 years later started building Fort Dade. When
completed in 1910, the Fort had 70 buildings, artillery
batteries, brick streets, and
water, sewer and electricity.
By 1920 the artillery was
out-of date. Today, the
remnants of Fort Dade lie
in ruins around the island
and in its waters.

*Visitors to
WHY:E'g n
Key can choose their reason
to visit: history or solitude. .
History buffs delight in
exploring the overgrown
ruins, crumbling batteries
dotting disappearing brick -
roads, and the old
Fresnell lens on
Locals craving
peace and quiet
fall in love with r
Egmont for -
another reason
entirely: the quiet.
With the advent
of warm weather, -
sun-seeking .
snowbirds and
spring breakers -
alike swarm public t
beaches. While
as Floridians we accept and expect tourism, the deserted
beaches on Egmont Key offer an escape from hotel-soaked
beaches fringed with karaoke bars and T-shirt shops.

H ~~, .Egmont Key is a Florida state park, but
*harbor pilots (local boat captains who take

the helm of freighters,
cruise ships, and
other large vessels as
they enter Tampa Bay
and safely bring those
vessels into port) have
a station there as well
as certain educational
programs. Visitors
cannot access these
parts of the island.

The park opens daily
at 8 a.m. And closes
at sunset.

V~ Ti "2. E ~Egmont Key lies southwest of
... h .Re o the southern tip of Fort DeSoto.
Set your GPS to 270 35' 10.5" N, 82' 45' 41" W. Don't have
a boat? Take the Egmont Key Ferry from Fort DeSoto
(867-6569) or book a half-day trip from St. Pete Beach at
Dolphin Landings (360-7411).

B E S part: Despite the tour boats, park rangers
. .and boat captains, it's still possible to
find a secluded stretch of beach. Turtles, manatee, dolphin
frequent the waters surrounding Egmont Key, and on
land you'll see one of the last remaining gopher tortoise
colonies. Visitors can also find giant shells, sand dollars,
and shark's teeth along the sandy beaches.

WORSTra o:
can't bring any pets on the
island and you can't go in the

There are a couple of times a
year where the park makes an
exception on the lighthouse
rule, and one's coming up. From 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. on
April 24 the Egmont Key Alliance celebrates Florida
Lighthouse Day by staffing the island with volunteers
and showing off the base of the lighthouse, which will be
open to the public. Expect to get a healthy dose of history,
including a lighthouse keeper dressed in period garb. The
event costs nothing, although fans of the island may opt to
join the Egmont Key Alliance. Memberships start at $15.

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
Gloria's. R.S.
