Gulfport police answered questions from citizens at the
Crime Awareness Picnic on Saturday.
The Gulfport Crime Awareness and Prevention
Association and SO49.org invited the community to
a beach picnic last Saturday at the Gulfport Beach
Pavilion in an effort to raise awareness of crime
prevention. Almost 200 people showed up to get the
opportunity to speak to local official representatives
from CERT, Gulfport Police and Fire and medical
personnel. Even Susan St. John a representative
from the States Attorney's Office,

St. Pete Beach Litigation Update


By Melissa Lattman
ST. PETE BEACH- The
current land development
journey in St. Pete Beach
began in 2002 when the city
with the help of a consultant
and citizen input evaluated
potential improvements
downtown and along Gulf
Boulevard. Move forward
eight years and the residents
passed in March a 20-year
Community Redevelopment
Area plan with the potential
of property tax dollars going
towards about $60 million


in public projects. That plan
is currently awaiting county
approval since county tax
money is involved, also.
The community's goals of
improving the downtown
Corey Avenue area and the
Gulf Boulevard resort areas
remain.
Who makes land decisions
and how land decisions are
made have been at issue
as well. What voters have
to approve has changed
over the last several years
with voters having varying
amounts of direct decision on

Gulfport Man Arrested
for Child Porn
By Leigh Clifton
Tax day was
a rough one
for 33 year old
Gulfport man
Malachi Surber.
In the early
morning hours
of April 15,
officers from the
St. Petersburg
Police, the
Gulfport Police Special Enforcement
Team, the Attorney Generals
CyberCrime Unit and the U.S.
Immigration and Customs Enforcement
descended on his parent's house on 29th
Ave South. A computer IP address from
that location set off an alert to the St.
Pete detective whose job is to monitor
child porn traffic on the web.
Gulfport Police arrived on scene; their
function was to secure the perimeter.
Throwing a flash-bang at the back of
the house; (a loud detecting device like
a firecracker that distracts the potential
suspect towards the back of the house,)
police and ICE agents stormed the
front door, looking for Surber.
See Arrest, page 3


development matters. City
Manager Mike Bonfield said
currently voter approval is
required for density, height,
land use and intensity
changes.
Litigation stemming from
thislanddevelopmentjourney
remains as well. The complex
web of lawsuits covers the
process and content of land
use decisions made in the
city. Overall upcoming legal
costs on the main cases this
year are estimated at $90,000
and next year at $225,000,
according to city officials.

Arrest, from front page
Inside, they arrested not only
Malachi Surber but his sister Elisha
Ann as well: she had an outstanding
warrant for a failure to appear on a
battery charge in Pasco County. Both
Surbers were taken to jail. Elisha
was released on bond later that
night. Malachi Surber remains in jail
on 15 counts of child pornography.
Other charges may still be pending
as forensics further examines his
computer.
According to Gulfport Sgt. Rob
Burkhart, Surber was accessing
known child porn websites from
his computer. These pieces of child
pornography number in the millions;
they are traded and circulated
worldwide through access sites
like Limewire.com, a file -sharing
public internet server. These files
are "marked" by law enforcement
and when they are traded they set
off an alert. The detectives look into
the volume of the trades, and then
subpoena the IP address is they
suspect child porn trafficking.
"It was obvious from the content
of his computer that the sites that
Surber traded were mostly older
sites; the pictures looked dated. But
the sad thing is that some of the sites
showed children as young as three
years old. It is just a sick obsession,"
Burkhart said. "I'm glad we can get
someone like that off the streets."
Surber remains in the Pinellas
County jail, charged with felony
possession of child pornography. Each
of the 15 counts carries a $1500.00
bond. If convicted, Surber could serve
up to five years per count.

Residents Allowed Six
Sales Per Year
GULFPORT- Despite city council's
own request for city staff to come up
with a way to allow Gulfportians to
have more frequent garage sales with
less strict permitting guidelines,
council voted down the resulting
temporary resolution that would do
just that.
The resolution would have lasted
one year and would have allowed
Gulfportians to hold garage sales on
thefirstFriday, Saturday, andSunday
of every month without applying for
a permit. Residents Lee Stapella and
Bob Newcomb expressed concerns
about the resolution. Councilman
David Hastings spoke against the
resolution; councilwoman Jennifer
Salmon attempted to amend the
resolution to assuage the expressed
concerns but ultimately could not
lead council to a middle ground.
Hastings and Salmon voted
against the resolution; Vice-Mayor
Michele King and councilman Sam
Henderson voted for it. Mayor Mike
Yakes broke the tie with a no vote.


Residents can still have up to six
garage sales a year but must apply
for permits for each one.

Gulfport Yacht Club
Renews Lease
GULFPORT- Council voted to renew
the city's lease with the Gulfport
Yacht Club. The Yacht Club,
comprises a 29-year-old clubhouse,

slips at 4638 Del Rio Way South.
The Gulfport Yacht Club will pay

Let's All Recycle,
Gulfport!
Dear Editor: When asked where I
live, I proudly announce that I live in
Gulfport. I have great neighbors, and
am proud to say that we are on the
forefront of many issues that concern
this county. Gulfport has undergone
a beautiful renaissance, of which I
point out when needed.
I am writing because I am very
disheartened at the lack of residents
who recycle. We are given a short time
on this earth, we are the keepers of
earth. We have a definite obligation
to take care of this planet, for it does
take care of us.
I have written to my local city
council-person, who is very concerned
as well. The city of Gulfport, and the
residents must come to agreement
on how we can recycle. I have heard
some people complain about the
"time" involved. It takes but a few
seconds to put the appropriate items
in the recycle bin.

Ride the Bus
Dear Editor: I had to write and
thank you for the wonderful article
by Cathy Salustri, "Two if by
Trolley", that you published in the
April 1, 2010 edition. As a pseudo-
governmental agency, we're an easy
target for criticism, so it's always
extra special when people recognize
what we do.
As you now know, getting people to
try PSTA for the first time is one of
the biggest obstacles we face when
it comes to building ridership. Once
people give us a try, they're usually
far more apt to continue riding in
some capacity. Your article is a
tremendous help in our efforts to get
more cars off the roads.
Bob Lasher,
Manager of Community Relations

Crime, from front page
was there to speak to the concerns
of crime. She was visiting her
parents, Joanne and Tom Ruzo
who live in Town Shores. Gulfport
Police Chief Bob Vincent spoke to
citizen's concerns as he laid out his
plan to combat crime. Scott Vincent,
the Chiefs brother was also there,
celebrating his birthday.
"We are implementing a new policy
of focusing on the more important
problems of crime in our city. For
instance, there are no dogs allowed
on Gulfport Beach. But if someone
sees a dog on the beach, even though
it's not allowed, we're not going to
devote valuable resources to it when
we need to focus instead on street
crimes, like assaults, burglary and
car theft. If we're walking and we see
a dog on the beach and we can tell
the owner not to do it, fine. We'll do
that. But we need to really focus on
the much more important issues that
affect our citizens every day life."
Crime Watch's Phil and Jerry
Reed both were pleased with the
large turnout. Phil had brought 20
lbs of wings and 20 lbs of potatoes
and sausages. Everyone was asked
to bring a dish. Walmart donated
the sheet cake and Bob Williams
provided the bouncy houses for the
kids.
All members of the City Council as
well as the Mayor showed up to meet
and greet the local folks who took the
opportunity to meet the people that
are protecting them.

Ron and Lynn Moore, Calgary,
Alberta: "We were dog people, Lynn
actually more than me. But we found
out that both my daughter and I are
allergic to both cats and dogs. My wife
and son are not. So we compromised
and got a rabbit. They're far more
hypo-allergenic and don't seem to
bother me. We don't have any pet or
kids at home now; no pets and no kids
means no responsibility! All we have
are plants to water."


_naLnle Dynelt, oL. reLe: I amn
definitely a cat person and all my cats
are rescues. Because I love Cadillacs,
I named all my cats after the different
models. Right now I have Coup de
Ville and El Dorado and I had another
cat named Fleetwood, but he passed
away. Dorado is purebred Angora and
just beautiful. I named another cat I
have Seville; I guess you could say I
like "Cat-a-lax". I also like dogs and
have had several Dobermans, Cocker
Spaniels and Goldens. But now I live
in a seventh floor condo and it just
wouldn't be fair to a dog. The condo
association also has restrictions. But I
love my cats; they're my family."


Gabber April 22 April 28, 2010


Marsha Zigmund, Gulfport: "I'm
a cat person, and have been since I
was a little girl. I've probably had
at least 30-40 cats in my lifetime.
I used to always take in the strays
in the neighborhood. I feel almost
like I could be half cat! 20 years ago,
my daughter said she heard some
kind of cat meowing. We followed
the sound and found a little baby
cat that had gotten tangled up in
my (ex) husband's tackle box. She
had actually gotten a hook somehow
stuck through her skin right near her
eye. It was awful! I cut the line and
took her right to the vet. They got the
hook out and when I got her home, I
had to feed her with an eyedropper.
I named her Peepers. We had her for
12 years. When she passed away, I
was just heartbroken. So for almost
20 years, I didn't have a cat. But my
daughter and I decided recently to
adopt a cat from the SPCA. I figured
we should try and give a homeless
animal a home. We walked in and
instantly saw this beautiful cat; he
stood right up and looked right at
us. He was a year old; his owners
had actually given him up on his
birthday! Can you imagine? When
he sat up, he looked so regal, like
a prince. We decided right then he
was for us The old owners had
named him Buckethead, which was
a stupid mean name for a cat. So
we named him Buckley; we thought
that was a nice name for him. We've
had him since late March and today
is his one month anniversary. He
sleeps with me and my daughter...
he's one spoiled cat!"


Jacques Bordeaux, South
Pasadena: "I'm a dog person; I have
always had Yellow and Black Labs
most of my life. I have one sweet
old boy, Oakley, who is 13. He's not
doing so well. He's been pretty sick
lately. I have another dog, Bailey,
who is some kind of American Fox
Hound mix. We almost hit her when
we were on a road trip to Lakeland
on a visit to my sister one July 4th.
She was in the middle of the street.
She followed us up the road. We
looked in the papers; called the local
shelters, but no one called about her.
So we brought her home here and got
her micro-chipped. It's a good thing
we did; she's gotten loose a bunch of
times but people always call us and
we get her back. I think she might
have been a hunting dog and she
likes to run. We also sort of have a
cat named Sox; he's a cat that was left
behind from a neighbor's foreclosure.
He's figured out the doggie door so he
comes in the house and hangs with
us. But he's not real friendly with the
dogs and we have babies too. We just
hope that someone will adopt him
and give him a permanent home."

Stetson Salutes the Troops
By Leigh Clifton

For the fourth year in a
row, hundreds ofveterans,
family and friends turned
out as Stetson Law School
sponsored their annual
Salute to the Troops
BBQ, held last Saturday
at the Gulfport Rec
Center. Chaired this year
by first-year law student
and Iraq veteran Javier
Centonzio, "I was one
of those people who really
IT C needed help," Javier said.
So g "I came back from Iraq
with Post-Traumatic
Stress Disorder (PTSD)
Sa and thought I could
handle it on my own. I'm
om.. ,nto w-,, 'f .. fr ta Marine; we're supposed
Sto be tough. But the
Veteran Center and Don
Donaldson has been
Fellow Stetson law students and veterans David Fernandez really helpful for me in
and Javier Centonzio let the children pick the tickets as dealing with it. There are
they give away raffle items at the Stetson Salutes the more suicides from PTSD
Troops BBQ last Saturday afternoon. The proceeds andee
than there are deaths in
donations will go to help pay postage for care packages
sent to combat troops overseas. Afghanistan. But there is
such a stigma attached to
admitting that a soldier needs help. I'm here today to tell everyone, vets and
non-vets alike, that there's no shame in needing counseling after the things we
vets have seen in combat."
Part of the problem, Javier said, is that it takes so long for the benefits to be
approved by the government. Meanwhile, vets who can't get into counseling
suffer with a myriad of symptoms, ranging from fear of crowds, over reactions
to loud noises, migraines, nightmares and paralyzing fear. It affects their
lives, their families and their jobs. With Javier, it took a year for his benefits
to kick in.
Javier said that Stetson and Gulfport have a great tradition together and
they love having events downtown.
"The City of Gulfport gives us a lot of support for our causes," Javier said.
Those vets were hungry, too, on Saturday afternoon. They went through
almost 150 hamburgers, 200 hotdogs and over 100 corndogs, according to
Bob Worthington. Bob is a veteran himself and said that this was a great
opportunity to give back to those who served.
There were several local businesses who donated gift certificates for door
prizes as well as cash donations for the various Veterans Services. Proceeds
from donations will pay for postage for the care packages of basic essentials
like razors, shaving cream and toiletries sent to the troops.
Said fourth year Stetson law student, navy veteran and President of Stetson
Law and Order Organization David Fernandez, "we're trying to do outreach
and recognize service men and women and their sacrifice."
Any extra food that was left over from the BBQ was donated to ASAP, a
homeless shelter for women and children downtown.

ItStoroscoDe Guide


ARIES (March 21-April 19). You
know someone who talks about
himself or herself incessantly. The
behavior is repellent, which is
why this person has a very small
audience. Your compassion will keep
you listening for quite a bit longer
than most people would. You'll learn
something of value and will use the
information to your advantage.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20).
You'll be reminded again who really
controls your life -- it's you, of course.
A certain overbearing person may
seem to have an undue influence;
however, it's only because you let it
happen sometimes. lllim.il.-ly, you
do best when you remember that you
are your own person and you are in
total control.
GEMINI (INl.y 21-June 21). The
past has passed -- and this is no time
to be nostalgic. That only zaps your
energy, and you need your energy
now to make powerful new goals. If
you walk backward, you'll see where
you've been, but you'll lose all of the
lovely anticipation and excitement
that comes from getting closer to your
destination.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Silver
linings are not just for clouds. The
magical gilding can be found in a
job you disdain, a person who makes
you uncomfortable or a commitment
that's not all it was cracked up to be.
Look for the glint of valuable and
precious metal in everything you do
this week, and you will be extremely
lucky.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Energetic
changes will physically invigorate
you. Imagine that you can see the
energy in the room you are in. Send
the used up, tired and polluted
energy swirling out the door, and
imagine the room being filled with
clear, bright energy. You don't even
have to believe in this concept for it
to work magic in your life.


VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You
are accustomed to playing certain
relationship roles -- often that of
a caretaker, nurturer, assistant
and confidante. Remember that
ultimately you are in charge of the
role assignments in your life and can
change it up whenever you feel like
it. All you have to do is decide who
you want to be.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Although
the word "sapphire" means blue, the
stone comes in many colors -- pink,
orange, purple and all of the above
in one rock. Like this hard gem, you
will move outside your standard
definition this week and accomplish
something brilliant, beautiful and
unexpected that grabs the attention
of admirers.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21).
You need self-discipline in order to
achieve your goals. It's not a magic
ingredient that some people possess
and others do not. It's a skill to be
learned. This week's events will fill in
some missing information. When you
know precisely what you need to do
and why, you will have the discipline
to do it.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec.
21). This is a week to stay relaxed
and flexible. When you feel yourself
getting tense, take the broad view.
Instead of focusing on the details of
life, think about the general shape
your days are taking -- the silhouette
of your life and times. Things will go
well as long as you stay upbeat and
project this feeling.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19).
Drop the self-help books for a week.
Consider that there may actually
be nothing about you that needs
changing. Try on an all-inclusive
attitude toward yourself. What
you think of as negative may be
your greatest asset. Maximize your
so-called faults instead of hiding
them. You'll be strangely liberated.


AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18).
You're susceptible to flattery and
will get plenty of it this week. Praise
will go to your head. You could get
an overblown feeling of your own
importance -- like you're the one
who invented music and colors. And
this heady egoism will work in your
favor, increasing your power and
magnetism. Go with it while it lasts.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You're
highly creative and also open to
influence. You'll be doing the rough
work -- sketching out the plans in
loose and messy lines. This process is
exciting, and others will want to get
involved. However, there are some
ideas you should protect and keep to
yourself until you've figured out the
main points.
This Week's Birthdays: It's not
enough for you to ride the middle
ground. You want to play among the
top performers. This drive toward
the upper crust will keep you sharp.
Your discipline will be great through
the next 10 weeks, setting the tone
for the entire year. There will still
be periods of goofing off and stalling,
but they are necessary breaks from
the main action. In May, you'll get
helpinghands onboth the professional
and domestic fronts. June brings
love, sweet love. September brings a
financial bonus.

"Gus" Returns to
Gulfport
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 and
2 p.m. for the Sunday shows. Tickets
are on sale now for just $15 each. Get
them at Eileen's Resale Boutique, the
Beach Bazaar, the Gulfport Chamber

to have shade meetings planned
tentatively within the next month
on the Sowa and ( 'nI.-1.-I -ki cases.
These two cases plus the Woods case
are part of the legal costs but fall
outside the scope of the development
approval cases.
* The Sowa case challenges the
issuing of a building permit.
* The ( 'nIi-.-uI -ki case relates to
public use/access to a beachfront
property.
* The Woods case is on raising a house

filed by Kadoura challenging the
city's settlement agreement with
Save Our Little Village (SOLV),
as a well as the steps taken to
implement it including adoption of
the comprehensive plan amendment,
land development regulations and

"Splash of Color"
Spring Show
By Mary Marsh
Members of The Art Guildof Treasure
Island have 20 paintings adorning
the walls of our Community Center
through mid-May. We complete the
introduction of our five artists with
the final two: Grace Roth and Ray
Vaillancourt.
Award-winning watercolorist Grace
Roth treats the viewer to more of
her lovely Florida subjects. "Early
Morning At Maximo Park", Kvy
West House" and "Pioneer Washday"
(a scene from Freedom Village)
all demonstrate Grace's superb
handling of color. Finally, we see her
whimsically titled "Southernmost
Entrepreneur", a small but thriving
sponge market on the very tip of Key
West.
Newcomer to the Community Center
is self-taught Ray Vaillancourt.
He offers one delicate watercolor,
"Flowers of Venice", and three oils:
a bod composition, "Feeding Time",
and a lovely still life of "Roses".
Outstanding is Ray's landscape
oil, "Silver Birches". His vertical
composition (32" tall x 17" wide)
emphasizes the tall, stately trees in a
setting of subtle colors reflected in a
meandering stream.
Don't miss this exhibit at the
Center, 106th Avenue just east of
Gulf Boulevard. Call 547-4575, ext.
238 for hours of operation.

So lethtln' oh my midr
a By Bill Northrop B_Northrop@theGabber.com


No Laughing Matter
Taxes are a laughing matter for
President Barack Obama. In putting
down the Tea Party rallies of last
week, he said that the protesters
ought to be thanking him for
lowering their taxes, not criticizing
him. He's not wrong (at least about
the taxes). Taxes have dropped for a
lot of people.
Of course we haven't talked about
the Value Added Tax. That's a
national sales tax on many, many
transactions from business to
personal purchases. It hasn't been
enacted yet, but probably will to
cover the spending we're doing.
Back to the present taxes: in fact
they started dropping before Obama
was elected when child credits,
exemptions, direct payouts and
deductions were increased. Since
the election and recession, these
have increased again. Added to
these have been special rebates or
tax credits for special rebates for
cars, appliances and direct payouts
from the treasury.
In fact, 47 per cent of the people
don't pay any tax at all. Of these,
40 per cent actually get checks from
the government. That is, if you paid
federal taxes part of what you paid
went directly to people who pay no
federal taxes. In one illustration
given, a married worker with two
children under 17 making $50,000
a year pays no federal taxes at all.
Under the new health bill, he (or
she) will also get direct assistance in
paying for health insurance.
This means that 53 per cent of
the population pays all the federal
income taxes. Ten per cent of these
pay 73 per cent of the burden. So, I
guess we should be thankful unless
you're part of the 53 per cent. And
the 53 per cent should expect more
tax increases not counting a VAT
tax. Of course, by that time it might
be only 45 per cent of the population
paying federal income taxes. More
people to be thankful. More reason
to laugh at anyone who protests


because there will be more people
getting a free ride.
To be fair, there are other taxes
that are paid by everybody: Social
Security, Medicare, excise taxes,
sales taxes, local and state income
taxes and property taxes. And, in
some cases there are taxes on taxes
(a sur tax). It might even appear
that we all work for the government.
That is, government takes home
more of our money than we do. Get
to work, you dogs! But I digress.
Of course, Tea Party people aren't
just about taxes. They are about the
power of government, reach of the
government, and the national debt
to name a few items on their agenda.
That leads us to the new tax that
will permit government to continue
to spend as it wishes and go beyond.
That's the VAT tax that all European
governments have. It ranges from 15
to 25 per cent on goods and services
including transaction within those
categories. I remember going to a
restaurant in France about 15 years
ago and noting a 17 per cent add-on
to my tab. At first I thought it was
the tip, but it was this Value Added
Tax. Any tip you wished to add was
extra. The restaurant pays that same
tax to its suppliers and the suppliers
to their suppliers or manufacturers.
Somewhere along these lines of
transactions, some of them get to
deduct the taxes providing they have
a paper (or electronic) trail.
There is a long list of exemptions,
presumably changing from time to
time as the political winds blow.
For instance, there might be an
exemption for medical care, or
groceries, or certain items of clothing.
Then, there might be reductions
for certain businesses such as non-
profits, book stores and so forth and
so on. There are lots of opportunities
to push for special political favors.
However, the important thing is that
it brings in lots and lots of money
and does not replace any other tax.
Certainly, we're in for a lot of
laughs.

In just 25 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.

LAST WEEK'S ANSWER:
The house at 2938 Beach Boulevard was
built in 1912, making it the earliest of
Gulfport's commercial buildings. The first
owner was Alexis Cusson, a Canadian
brought here by the cigar business, who
operated a grocery store on the first
floor and rented the upstairs apartment.
It was sold in the 1920s, and became
the Florida Playthings factory, which
manufactured wooden toys and lawn
ornaments until 1938, when it was made
over into apartments. The porches have

The Community Garden
is Ready for Planting!
GULFPORT- Abrandnew community
garden is ready to be planted! The
garden is available to residents of
both Gulfport and St. Petersburg;
providing the opportunity to grow
vegetables, annuals and other non-
permanent plants in a plot of their
own.
The garden is a grassroots endeavor
being coordinated by a group of
local gardening enthusiasts. It is
supported by the City of Gulfport
and the South 49th Street Business
Association. It is intended to provide
a sustainable, educational, and
aesthetically appealing garden in the
Gulfport community. The garden is
located on Preston Avenue between
51st and 52nd Street South. Plots
are available for $50 for a season,
with two seasons a year (March-
August and September-February).
Organizers hope that eventually the
garden will offer educational courses
for both youth and adults on topics
ranging from organic gardening to
xeriscaping. The focus will be on
sustainable and organic gardening.


The grassroots community group
is currently seeking gardeners with
interest in having their own plot
as well as volunteers to help with
the garden. Plots are currently
available for planting (sunny plots,
approximately 60 square feet, water
provided). More information is
available by visiting www. so49.org, or

Gulfport's Opossum
Rescue Team
Officer Zack Mills
and Councilman Sam
Henderson Save Trevor
the Opossum
By Cathy Salustri
While riding the Gulfport Trolley
Friday night, Councilman Sam
Henderson saw a car hit an opossum.
While the car left the scene,
Henderson asked the trolley driver
to stop. Henderson got off the trolley,
realized the opossum was still alive,
and called the animal ambulance.
Gulfport police officer Zack Mills
arrived on the scene while Henderson
waited for the ambulance. Mills and
a police explorer helped ensure the
safety of Henderson and the opossum
by directing traffic around the injured
animal and the councilmember.
"On a Friday night they spent 20
minutes with me making sure no
one ran over this opossum I decided
I cared about," Councilman Sam
Henderson said in praise of Mills and
the young explorer.
A car struck the opossum on
28th Avenue and 57th Street. The
opossum, now known as Trevor,
survived but sustained a broken jaw.

Gulfport City Council Meeting


Public Comment & Council Quotes


"Out of the $8-million we got one house?" -Vice-
Mayor Michele King, to Anthony Jones of Pinellas
County Community Development, about the number of
homes bought with federal funds (NPS2 funds)

"There's been a total of 17 houses bought altogeth-
er...$8 million sounds like a lot of money, but...
it doesn't give you hundreds of houses." -Anthony
Jones, Director of Pinellas County Community Develop-
ment, in response to King

"It gives you more than one."-Vice-Mayor Michele
King, in response to Jones

"It's not the time or the venue to sit down and go
over that."-Mayor Mike Yakes, in response to Jones
and King. Yakes suggested the two set a meeting to
discuss the funding

"That represents the first physical action of the
restoration in Clam Bayou that you all have
worked so hard for...I'm here to thank you all...
regardless of what we agreed on, it got us to this
point."-"Kayak" Kurt Zuelsdorf, who thanked city
council and private citizens who he said traveled the
state and spoke to state officials to step up restoration
efforts

"It's the coyote population that we now have here
in Gulfport. They have eliminated every raccoon
and every opossum." -Councilmember David Hast-
ings, about the missing ducks and birds at Wood Ibis
Park

"She was met with some skepticism, but in the end
her actions spoke louder than words."-Maragete
Tober, referring to councilwoman Jennifer Salmon's
decision to visit Clam Bayou and parties often criticized
in council for their efforts

"It is a direct slap in the face of one of our most
precious rights: freedom of speech."-Margarete To-
ber, referring to comments made by Mayor Mike Yakes
at the last council meeting. Tober said Yakes' comments
suggested that, in the future, council might not allow
public comment

"Could it be a little more funky and arty and
Gulfport-y?" -Councilwoman Jennifer Salmon, about
a city ad

"I agree with Councilwoman Salmon... This looks
like a CPA ad."-Councilman David Hastings, who
works as a CPA

"You can set up the parameters that allow it,"
-Interim City Attorney Andrew Salzman, about public
comment

"I think we should err on the side of free speech,"
-Jennifer Salmon, in response to Salzman

"Remember, free speech doesn't mean you can yell
'fire' in a crowded building,"-Salzman, who further
suggested that councils can set parameters without
impinging on free speech

Foreclosure Fraud
Prevention Seminar
Foreclosure fraud has become a
real problem in Pinellas County.

recently received a $100,000 federal
grant to fight foreclosure fraud. The
grant was provided through the


American Recovery & Reinvestment
Act.
A seminar alerting consumers to

for those who have either fallen
behind in their mortgage payments
or anticipate missing payments in
the future is being held on Saturday,
April 24 at the Gulfport Casino, 5500
Shore Boulevard S. in Gulfport from
10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
For information on this and future
seminars, call 727-464-6200. For

Last But Not Least
Call it "supper-sizing," a study
published in the International
Journal of Obesity looked at 52
paintings created over a span of 1,000
years, each famously depicting Jesus
Christ and his disciples at their last
supper.
The analysis revealed that, not
unlike real life, the emphasis upon
eating and food has grown along with
our waistlines. Specifically, portion
size in the paintings expanded 69
percent from the first painting to the
last. Plate size grew 66 percent. And
the size of the loaves of bread on the
table swelled 23 percent.
The researchers were brothers Brian
and Craig Wansink. Brian studies
eating habits at Cornell University.
Craig is a professor of religion at
Virginia Wesleyan. They calculated


the growth in Biblical proportions by
comparing food on the table to the
one constant in all of the paintings:
the size of the apostles' heads.

You & THE


LAV
By Robert J. Myers, Esquire
How is Your
Legal Health?
(Part I)
As with your physical well-being,
you can avoid major legal problems
by periodically checking the status of
your legal health. Some of the areas
in which you may wish to consider
getting a legal "check-up" are estate
planning, wills, trusts, insurance
coverage, financial investments and
retirement planning. A review of
your legal affairs on an annual basis
to ensure that all relevant legal
documents meet your current needs
is recommended.
Many times, a yearly legal checkup
will uncover legal problems that
can be corrected before they cause

a major problem. For example, with
a birth or death of a loved one, you
may wish to reevaluate your will,
trust or estate plan. Like a physician
or dentist, a lawyer is trained to
diagnose legal problems or maladies
and recommend cures.
During your legal checkup, a review
of your family affairs, real estate
holdings, finances, investments,
business interests and employment
should be accomplished. If a "fix"
is required to your legal health, a
lawyer should be able to anticipate
what remedial action is necessary
before a minor problem becomes a
costly disaster.
In upcoming segments of this
publication, we will together explore
some of the common legal problems
uncovered by a legal checkup. As with
a medical problem, it is important to
see a lawyer as early as possible, that
is, before a legal problem occurs, or
if there is already a legal problem,
before it becomes more aggravated
and costly.

Law Offices which is located at

Mr. Myers welcomes calls regarding
this article and other related legal
topics. This column outlines general
legal principles and is not intended to

Concert of the Season
Max Millspaugh, Musical Director
of the South Pasadena Community
Band, has announced that the band's
final concert of the 2009-2010 season
will be May 13 in Galatea Garden,
South Pasadena's very ornate Greek-
themed garden. "We end each year
with favorite selections. This year
we will develop the theme "Director's
Choice" and I will share some
personal favorites with our audience,"
commented Mr. Millspaugh. "I have
included some well known favorites
that are main-stays of the concert in
the park setting. I also have chosen
some other titles including "Pirates
of the Caribbean", "2nd Connecticut
March", some music from Jimmy
Hughs, and "An American Tribute"
said Millspaugh. "This will be a lot of
fun" he said.
The concert is free to the public.
Galatea Garden is located on
Sunset Avenue one block west of
the Pasadena Avenue and Gulfport
Boulevard intersection. Adequate
parking is available around the
garden and rest room facilities are

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
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.

Donate Your Glasses-
Help Others
By Melissa Lattman
For me thoughts of mission trips had
often brought up images of hammers,
nails, and other manual labor. While
I am not adverse to house cleaning
and yard work and I often was the
one scrubbing toilets at the church
cleanup day at my former rural
church I realized after I heard about
a mission trip where they held babies
in an orphanage for a week that type
of service was more me. So I began to
look for opportunities to serve.
I love photography and looking at
and exploring the world through the
lens of my camera. Sometimes dust
or sand gets on the lens and it be-
comes hard to see through it. What
about going through life not seeing
clearly? What if I lived somewhere
where having a pair of prescription
glasses was a fuzzy dream?
Two years ago I learned about the
opportunity to go on a 7 to 10 day
trip and provide people with eye-
glasses to help them see more clearly.
I journeyed just south of our border
into Juarez, Mexico and helped 700
people in four days get eyeglasses.
Now I have the opportunity this sum-
mer to go even farther south to Peru
to provide people with eyeglasses.
You can also help people to see. All
the eyeglasses that will accompany
our team of about 15 people from
around the United States are do-
nated. We will take about 3,000 pairs
with us in order to accommodate the
wide possible range of prescriptions
we will need. MOST Ministries of Ann
Arbor, Michigan will sort through the
glasses. If the lenses are scratched
but the frames are good then they
grind new glass for the usable glass-
es. MOST uses prescription, reading
or sunglasses. Sometimes people just
need protection from the sun's harsh
rays through sunglasses.
If you would like to help, glasses
can be dropped off at The Gabber
offices at 1419 49th Street South in
Gulfport. Donations to MOST minis-
tries ( a non-profit) can also be made
to defray the costs for the three of us
from the St. Petersburg area going
on the trip. For more info. on MOST
go to www.mostministries.org
Donated reading glasses, prescrip-
tion glasses and sunglasses are being

Gabber April 22 April 28, 2010


sought. A small group from the St.
Petersburg area is taking glasses to
people who need them this summer
in Peru. Please drop off donations at
The Gabber office at 1419 49th Street
South in Gulfport.

My Friend The Clown
By Beverley J. Combs


This past February I received a
phone call informing me my best
friend, Mary "Leppy" Bradshaw,
had died.
Many ofyou will, no doubt, remember
Leppy, dressed in her emerald-green
and white leprechaun clown suit
pulling a small red wagon occupied
by her doll Lepette, dressed in a
matching costume. I met Leppy in
the mid-90s at the Gulfport Senior
Center where we both attended a
writers' group. Leppy had written
an article about her favorite subject:
herbal medicine.
Leppy asked me to meet her for
breakfast at Sal's Restaurant. I
learned later, eating out was one
of her favorite pastimes. We would
often lunch at Gulfport Family
Restaurant or as Leppy called it,
"the diner". I remember her scolding
me when I'd get up to leave: "You
sit back down here and finish that
water. We don't want another
bladder infection, do we?"
















Gabber April 22- April 28, 2010


Leppy and I loved La Cote Basque;
moreover, the staff there loved Leppy
so much, they finally hung a picture
of her by one of the tables and when
we went there, we'd always eat at
"Leppy's table".
After a while, Leppy and I knew all
about each other's families. "Don't
you think Mona looks like me?" she'd
ask, showing me the latest picture of
her daughter.
"Yeah, she's pretty, like her
mother."
Leppy and I continued our fun lives,
interrupted only by her attempts to
exercise another hobby. Listen to
the voice of Leppy The Matchmaker:
"You haven't been dancing lately. I
heard so-and-so loves to dance, and
he's divorced now." I'd never known
Leppy to give up on anything; she'd
simply back-burner the subject then
serve it up later at an opportune
time.
A few weeks later we were sitting
on the beach; and she said, in the
authoritative voice she reserved for
such occasions: "I've arranged for a
big party at the Casino next week
for my 80th birthday." She gave me
her little secretive, half-smile look: "I
know you; there's no way you'd dare
miss my 80th birthday."
She knew me. The party was pure
Leppy. She loved to dance and she
was out there keeping up with the
best of them. There was a huge cake
with a clown on it. And yes, as I'd
expected, he was there. Leppy's party
was eight years ago now; and today
he and I are still good friends.
Life was treating Leppy and me
kindly as Leppy moved into her 80s,
but it was not too long before the
world began whirling around us.
Leppy's daughter, Mona, found a job
in North Carolina and was unable
to come to Gulfport as often. The
apartment building where Leppy
rented was sold for condos and she
was forced to find a less convenient
place to live.
One day I picked Leppy up to take
her home after a Gulfport parade; she
didn't have her clown costume on. "I
didn't want to put all that makeup
on. I thought it would be good enough
if I just pulled Leppette along in the
wagon." Soon after that, I noticed
Leppy had changed her diet. Ice
cream and white bread replaced her
usual healthful choices. "I just eat
anything I want to now," she said.


Within a couple of years, Leppy
developed arthritis and began
limping. She struggled, successfully,
to make it across the street. Finally
Leppy became overly zealous about
the war in Iraq; she envisioned
a similarity to World War II. In
addition, she infuriated a few of her
contemporaries by insisting the U.S.
was headed for an economic collapse
rivaling the Great Depression.
Before long, "for her own good" the
state of Florida--ignoring Leppy's
wishes as well as the advice of her
close friends and family--assigned
Leppy to a nursing home. As 'nice'
goes, the home was nice. But it
wasn't Leppy. Nevertheless, each
time I visited her, I could detect,
beneath her despondency, a faint
spark of the old Leppy: "Mona will
get me out of here."
Time dragged by. Then one evening
Mona called to say she was coming to
take her mother to North Carolina.
Mona, like her mother, had never
given up.
Leppy moved into Asheville Manor,
a retirement home that offered
some assisted living, a place where
residents are encouraged to pursue
their own beliefs. Leppy thrived.
She gained weight, got out of bed by
herself and walked with a walker.
Asheville Manor had a charter Red
Hat Society and Leppy joined again.
With more to live for and on fewer
prescriptions drugs, Leppy was free.
During Christmas I learned Leppy
could write again. I received a card
from her with a letter. She told me
it was snowing so hard the mall was
closed so she had enclosed $20 for my
Christmas present. She wanted me
to buy "a black short lace nightie." I
left the money and letter in the card
and put it with my other treasures.
Two months later I received notice
of Leppy's death. An evil germ had
attacked her and put a quick end to
her earthly life. She was 88 years
old.
After a few days, I took the money
she'd sent and bought a beautiful
nightgown on a clearance sale. It's
not black though; it's sunny-sky
blue, a color that reminds me of the
many days Leppy and I spent on the
beach, laughing and singing and
playing, like two happy children.
I love you, Leppy.







Sunken Boat Removed from Boca Ciega Bay


By Cathy Salustri
After several months of unsuccessful attempts like the March 14 attempt pictured here,
crews managed to raise the sunken sailboat
After several months, the owner of the sailboat that sank just south of the
Casino managed to raise it this weekend. Although the boat sank in Gulfport
waters, the land underneath belongs to the state. In such cases, the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) has jurisdiction over the
case.
Gulfport police took a report when the boat sank, and Gulfport harbormaster
Denis Frain notified the United States Coast Guard to issue a Notice to
Mariners that the sunken vessel was a hazard to navigation. The police also
contacted the owner and allowed him two weeks to raise the vessel.
"After two weeks and the vessel still not raised, I contacted FWC's division
of Law enforcement," Frain said. FWC contacted the owner and issued him a
warning to raise the boat. Almost two months later and several unsuccessful
attempts the owner raised the vessel this past weekend.
In cases like this, if FWC can't find the owner, the agency issues a derelict
identification number to the vessel. Then the FWC works with Pinellas
County's Water and Navigation division. The county gets three quotes from
salvage companies and salvages the boat. The state gives local government
funds to raise derelict boats from the vessel registration fees it collects.
"In most cases it takes two to four months, depending if contact is made
with the owner, to have the vessel removed," Frain said. "There is a difference
between an abandoned vessel and a vessel with a owner.
Had the boat dragged anchor onto city property, things may have moved along
quicker, Frain suggested. If the boat lands on city property, the city tries to
locate the owner. If the city can't find him, it immediately removes the vessel
and tows it to the city marina, where the owner will then accrue storage fees in
addition to the towing charges.
The city has a low chance of recovering those fees, Frain said.
"In most cases, the storage charge exceeds the value of the boat," Frain
explained. If the city can't find an owner within 30 days, they dispose of the
boat by removing hazardous materials, crushing it and bringing it the county
landfill. With boats over 25 feet, the city asks the county to help demolish the
boat.
"They've been really helpful," Frain said. If the city does find an owner, the
boat could end up mired in either red tape or litigation while the city attempts
to recover the money spent on removing the vessel from Boca Ciega Bay.
The average Sea Tow bill for towing a non-grounded vessel costs about $350.
Raising a sunken boat costs at least $100 per foot, Frain said. In addition, the
Gulfport marina charges $1.50 per foot per day for storage.

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.

Amen. Say 3 Our Fathers, 3 Hail Marys & 3
Gloria's. R.S.
