St. Pete Times journalist and naturalist Jeff Klinkenberg reads an
excerpt from UnspOILed to the crowd at Studio 620 last Friday night.
The book, originally written as an homage by several writers to their
memories of the Florida coastline and as a protest to offshore oil
drilling, was amended to include the most recent oil spill tragedy in
the Gulf. The spill is a constant reminder of the fragility of our coastline
and fertile Gulf waters.

Florida League of Cities Delegate
ST. PETE BEACH- Mayor Mike Finnerty will serve as the
city's voting delegate at the 84th Annual Florida League of
Cities Annual Conference. This year's conference is August
19-21 in Hollywood.

Reclaimed Water Rates Up for Users
ST. PETE BEACH- The commission approved on second
reading increases to the reclaimed water rates, which is the
first increase in a decade. The flat residential monthly rate
will go up from $11.50 to $14.38 on Oct. 1, 2010. There will
be an additional increase to $16.39 monthly on October 1,
2011.
The commission decided to not charge an availability fee to
the approximately 823 properties that could use reclaimed
water but don't. Instead they adopted slightly higher rates
for the users of reclaimed water.
A couple of residents spoke against charging an availability
fee.
"I am the one who is not connected... I don't use it because I
don't have much yard to water," Joanne Tomassi said.

Two New Law
Suits Against
St. Pete Beach
Two new lawsuits were filed
against the city recently.
One was an effort to stop the
August election, which would
have put the comprehensive
plan with changes back before
voters. In the interim the city
decided not to put the plan back
before voters this August. The
other suit is an effort to get
transcripts from shade (closed)
meetings, City Attorney Mike
Davis said.
Court dates have been set in
the Pyle case involving ballot
summaries for August 19 and
20. The Kadura case on changes
to the comprehensive plan
required by the Department of
Community Affairs is set for
September 24. With possible
appeals it could continue for a
year or so, Davis said.

Alcohol Sales May
Go to 3 a.m.
ST. PETE BEACH- The
city commission discussed
extending alcohol sales by one
hour. Allowing sales until 3 a.m.
would follow ordinance changes
made recently in St. Petersburg.
The commission will consider
an ordinance on the subject at a
future meeting.
A local bar owner shared how
later sales in St. Petersburg
just two miles away impacts his
business with customers going
to St. Petersburg instead. He
said after midnight hospitality
workers often frequent his
establishment to unwind after
work. The workers' shifts go
until around midnight so they
only have about 90 minutes or
less to relax at the bar.

Gulfport Toxic Debris
Removal Contract
Takes Advantage of
Other Contracts
In the event of a flood or a hurricane,
tons of toxic debris could result.
Should that happen in Gulfport,
council voted Tuesday evening to
contract with Omni Pinnacle to
remove the debris. The contractor
could not provide an estimated cost
in advance of any disaster, but Omni
Pinnacle has contracts with several
cities and Gulfport will "piggyback"
onto contracts with larger cities.

Council Rules and
Procedures Change
GULFPORT- City council voted
unanimously to adopt new rules and
policies for city council meetings.
These rules will apply to both city
council as well as people speaking
during the public comment portions
of the meeting. The new procedures
deal with decorum, the public session,
and visual displays.

"I really think it would be good

Bob Newcomb said, explaining: "Rules

The city did not address his
comment; voted unanimously to

New Daycare Approved
on 49th Street
GULFPORT- After hearing from
several fans of Starling Day Care,
city council voted to approve a site
plan for a day care business on 49th
Street. The day care will occupy 917,
919, and 921 49th Street South.
County records show that the

for $255,200 in September 2009.
The county has no record of a 917
or 921 49th Street. A search of state
records show no filings for Roopani
Development Corp.

Hands Across the Sand
Returns to Gulfport
GULFPORT- Gulfport Beach will be a
participating location in a nationwide
demonstration to oppose oil drilling
in our coastal waters. On Saturday,
June 26, people from all walks of life
and political affiliations will gather
at locations across the country.
During the event, all participants will
join hands at noon for 15 minutes,
creating a metaphorical "line in the
sand."
This "show of hands" will be the
second demonstration of its kind. The
first Hands Across the Sand event
in February mobilized thousands
of people across Florida to show


opposition to legalizing drilling as
near as three miles off of Florida's
Gulf coasts. The recent Deep Horizon
oil spill and its catastrophic effects
have now magnified the issue.
Wildlife and environment, fisheries,
the quality of life for residents,
and vital tourist industries are all
drastically affected by this spill.
Future spills caused by drilling
platform accidents, oil corporation
malfeasance, oil transportation
accidents and other mishaps can
cause similar devastation. Hands
Across the Sand will also emphasize
support for major investments in
clean energy alternatives.
Participants for the Gulfport event
will meet at the Gulfport Casino at

Oil Spill Awareness
Meeting
Peg's Cantina and Brewpub is
partnering with the Sierra Club
on June 26 to raise money and
awareness regarding the gulf oil
spill. Folks can meet at the Casino at
11 a.m. for a Hands Across the Sand
event to express their opposition to
drilling off Florida's coasts.
Afterward they are invited to Peg's to
explore a menu that has been created
to reflect the carbon footprint of the
food. Thus, some food will cost more
and some will cost less. The purpose
is to help folks become aware of the
transportation costs of menu items.
The difference will be donated to the
Suncoast Seabird Sanctuary and the
Lowery Zoo. Peg's will also donate 7%
of the proceeds that day. In addition
many of their staff have indicated
they will donate their salaries. Folks
will also be encouraged to do what
they can in addition to the upcharge
on the menu.

2010 Fire/EMS
Survival Week
GULFPORT-The Gulfport Fire
Department will participate in the
2010 Fire/EMS Safety, Health and
Survival Week (Safety Week) during
the week of June 20-26. Safety
Week is an event sponsored by the
International Association of Fire
Chiefs (IAFC) and the International
Association of Fire Fighters (IAFF).
This annual event aims to improve
firefighter safety and health to give
all a better chance of survival in

emergencies and in the long-term.
Fire departments across the U.S.
and Canada will take time during
the week to go over the messages and
resources that will help achieve that
goal.
The Gulfport Fire Department has
participated in this event for several
years with topics ranging from
vehicle safety to firefighter survival.
These programs not only enhance
firefighter safety, they also increase
the department's ability to respond
to the citizens of Gulfport in their
time of need.
The theme for Safety Week this year
is "Fit for Duty," which encourages all
fire/EMS personnel to focus on health
and wellness issues. With more than


50 percent of fire fighter line-of-duty
deaths caused by health and fitness-
related issues, it's imperative that
there be a concentrated effort in
implementing wellness and fitness
programs.
The Gulfport Fire Department has
made a strong effort in reducing the
risk of injuries and deaths through
improved policies, training, and
annual fitness evaluations. The
department also has firefighters
certified as fitness trainers to
assist employees with wellness/
fitness program designs and
implementation.

Letters
Only in Gulfport...
Many Thanks
Dear Editor: I wanted to express
my deepest thanks to the anonymous
citizen of Gulfport for finding
and returning my wallet. I lost it
downtown while out with some
friends who were in town. We went
to Bellini's and then to Domain and
the beach next to the Casino. My
friends had never been to Gulfport
and were really impressed as we all
had a great night.
The next day we were planning
another outing when I realized I
had lost my wallet. I immediately
retraced my steps and put in a lost
and found report with the Gulfport
Police Department. I had no hopes of
ever seeing it again. I then called my
father, Michael Knettel, Sr. who has
lived in Gulfport for several years.
He always talks so highly of living


and working in Gulfport. He owns
and runs Domain Home Accessories
and MGK & Co., Inc. He told me
the people of Gulfport are always
looking out for each other and that
my wallet might just turn up. He
told me he would ask around and
I felt a little better but still didn't
think that I would ever see it again.
Two days later my wallet was
returned to his mailbox without a
note or a way to contact the person
who found it. I don't know if the
person recognized the name as I
am a junior or if by chance they
saw my father's business card with
his address on it. Either way my
wallet was returned fully intact and
I am eternally grateful! I now have
a greater love for Gulfport and its
amazing citizens.
Thank you so much!
Michael G. Knettel, Jr.

Bay Scallop Season
to Open Early
Gov. Charlie Crist has announced
that the recreational harvest season
for bay scallops in Florida will open
12 days earlier than usual this year.
The governor is taking this action
to help relieve possible economic
hardships on Florida fishing
communities that may occur due to
the BP Deepwater Horizon oil spill
in the Gulf of Mexico.
"Several people and businesses
in Northwest Florida and Big


Services
* Detailed medical history and physical exam
* Review of medications and education of
interactions and side effects
* Cognitive evaluation
* Home safety evaluation
* Memory Testing and Evaluation
* Fall and Gait Evaluation
* Testing and Management of Coumadin
Therapy
* Blood Tests and Laboratory Services
* X-ray Evaluations and Expert Radiology
Referrals


Bend coastal regions asked us to
please open the popular bay scallop
season early this year," Gov. Crist
said. "These folks depend upon
the influx of visitors that come to
their communities to scallop each
summer, and they need a boost
right now to help them recover
from the mistaken perception that
fishing throughout Florida has been
affected by the oil spill, which is not
the case."
The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC)
has issued an order which states that


* Dexa Scans and Bone Density Workup and
Management
* Echocardiogram Testing and Evaluation
* Electrocardiogram Testing and
Interpretation
* Medical Equipment Evaluation and Ordering
* Coordination of Care with Nursing, Rehab,
and Social Agencies
* Referrals to a Wide Variety of Specialists
* Prescriptions
* Vaccinations Year Round


Fone By Har W. Eihnbun MD F
He wa npatcnS. Ptrbgfoovr4yes HsDdcto n Eprec wre


the recreational bay scallop harvest
season in specified areas in Florida
shall open on June 19 instead of
July 1 this year. The order also says
that all other provisions governing
the harvest of bay scallops shall
remain in effect for the duration of
the order.
The FWC order, which can be
viewed online at MyFWC.com/
OilSpill, takes effect at 12:01 a.m. on
June 19 and will expire at 12:01 a.m.
on July 1. The regular recreational
bay scallop harvesting season in
Florida occurs from July 1 through
September 10 each year.

-Ernie Armistead of the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office, gave an update
on the oil spill. A major impact is not anticipated in this area. A hurri-
cane could potentially change that status. If people want to be prepared
in the community to assist with clean-up efforts

The prospect of having a halfway house for prisoners about to be

tSt 0oroscoDe Guide


CANCER (June 22-July 22). You'll
receive a wide variety of opinions.
Even knowledgeable individuals may
be biased. Keep in mind that some
professions require pessimism from
their practitioners. For instance,
lawyers must anticipate what could
go wrong in order to offer a counter-
plan. As you gather information,
always consider your source.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Many are
drawn to the safety of investigating
other people's lives and troubles --
much preferred to dealing with one's
own issues. You are courageous
enough to look into your own
problems this week. Your success
starts with becoming aware of what's
bugging you and being willing to
handle it.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Ignore
the naysayers. They are compelled
by jealousy and fear. You have an
idea worthy of pursuit -- develop
it. If that means striking out alone,
then you can add character-building
to the list of positives that await you.
Friday brings a new friendship. This
may be with someone who is already
your acquaintance.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). This
giant world has so many problems.
You'll wonder what difference you
could possibly make. There is only
one area you can affect for certain,
and that is the corner you occupy.
Start there. Shine it up. Make it
gleam, and you will notice that the
light radiates out to the rest of the
universe.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Some
degree of worry is to be expected.
Handle it with grace, and you'll
attract good fortune to yourself.
Anyway, it is a waste of time to try to
figure out who started the problem.
Instead, dissolve the tension. Most
of the problem goes away once you
do that. And whatever is left can be
easily worked out.


SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21).
You want to make everything nice
for your loved ones. However, your
ideas and their ideas about what
qualifies as "nice" differ. And once
you find out their preferences, you
may also discover that what you
really want to do is make things
nice for you. And that's not such a
bad idea. Why not start there?
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19).
The worldisfilledwith contradictions
that clash like wind currents, causing
emotional storms. Whatever you can
do to keep it simple will calm the
winds, part the clouds and allow the
sun to shine on you. Get organized,
and clean things up. Suddenly you'll
see the clear path you couldn't see
before.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18).
When you consider the passages
of life you have already been
through, a feeling of uncertainty or
awkwardness, or even the sensation
of being totally lost, is essentially
part of the deal. You can't appreciate
feeling "found" -- having a home and
a sense of belonging -- until you
know what it's like to be "lost."
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20).
You're a bit touchier this week than
you usually are. Loved ones make
requests. Colleagues need things
from you. The general public doesn't
always seem to be on your side. The
way things are communicated to you
may get on your nerves. You need
a reprieve. Go to your own little
relaxing bubble for a while.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). There
will be a series of trades. It may not
seem that you are bargaining with
any one person directly, but rest
assured, you are doing business with
the forces at large. Give one thing
up, and another thing will drop into
the space. By Thursday you will
understand completely what to give
in order to get what you want.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20).
Mundane tasks pile up, forcing you
to push aside your higher creative
calling. It is frustrating, but know
two things: This is a temporary
inconvenience, and these lesser
obligations wouldn't bother you so
much if there weren't so many of
them. Next time you won't let them
pile up. Now you'll take it in stride.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You
want to mingle in a certain exclusive
group. Do you know enough about
the scene to be a part of it? Gather
more information. When you finally
break in, you'll do so because you
attained a degree of expertise, though
you'll still manage to come across as
modest and genuinely interested in
others.
This Week's Birthdays: You
are spontaneous and exciting
to be around. This year your

Sunken Ship,
Take Two
















By Cathy Salustri
If this picture looks familiar, don't be
fooled- this is a new photo, taken last
weekend, of a boat that sank last year
and was raised earlier this year. This past
month it sank once again, and this time
the city of Gulfport turned the matter
over to the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC).

Players Hold Cathy Awards
The Gulfport Com-
munity Players held
their 13th Annual
Cathy Awards Dinner
and Ceremony this past
Saturday night at their
Back Door Theater. As
usual, they had a record
attendance for this
suspenseful event. The
Players holdthis annual
affair to honor their
own actors, producers,
directors, and all the other people that made their last season another one to
be especially proud of.
To add to the mix, the Cathy committee ran into a problem that they had never
encountered before- one play that blew away Gulfport and the Players too! That
play, Gulfport, The Musical, was so well directed, cast, and performed that the
committee had no other choice but to give every actor that played in it a Cathy
Award! The play was even put into a special category by the committee. The
Players also just found out that the Gulfport City Council has chosen one of the
plays many songs- Gulfport, My Home, as its official song. Awards were also
given out to the musical's writer- Gil Perlroth, its director-Daniel Harris, its
choreographer &
musical director-
Bill Bryant, and
the author of the
book on which
the play was
based- Lynne
Brown. The play
ran for 3 weeks,

selling out every
night, except
one!
There were
many other great
plays the Players
had throughout
their season too and awards were given aplenty for them too. Here's a list of
them:
Best Actress in a Short Play- Katherine Laczko in Justice Now
Best Actor in a Short Play- Norm Nash for Buying Back Brooklyn
Best Production and Original Writing of a Short Play- Tinamarie Hansen for
Buying Back Brooklyn
Best Lighting Design- Frank Hale for Gulfport, The Musical
Best Sound Design- Jim Russell for Gulfport, The Musical
Best Set Design and Best Director- Eileen Navarro for You Can't Take it with
You
Best Actress in a Cameo Role- Mike Finn for You Can't Take it with You
Best Supporting Actress- Brick for Cookin' with Gus
Best Supporting Actor- Gyula Nemeth for You Can't Take it with You
Best Lead Actress- Carol Valdes for Cookin' with Gus
Best Lead Actor- Jim Russell for Beau Jest
Best Production- Jim Tobin for You Can't Take it with You

information to be included in the
registry. Information will be used
to invite and involve local artists in
shows and exhibits, other events,
meetings, teaching opportunities and
more. Information will not be shared
with others without prior permission.
Artists may either live, work, study
or have some other connection to
Gulfport. To be included, please

Premier Choice: Flood Insurance That Pays You!


Make The Call
We Will Save you Money!
Jeff DeNight is changing the way
people feel about their insurance
company.
Jeff co-owns two insurance agencies,
Bentley-DeNight Insurance Services,
a full service, independent, Trusted
Choice agency that offers business,
auto, home, commercial, life, boat,
motorcycle, RV and umbrella policies.
He also owns Premier Choice Rebate
Flood Insurance, a flood insurance
agency that sells nothing but flood
insurance.
'"We're the only flood insurance
agency that offers cash rebates back
to all our customers," Jeff explains.
So if you buy your flood insurance
through Premier Choice, you'll get at
least seven percent of your annual
premium (before fees and taxes) back
in the form of a rebate check.
"We give the money back to our
customers either at inception- if
they're new policy holders-- and then
again every subsequent year they
renew... forever," Jeff says.
Here's how the rebate works:


Jeff uereign, uo-owner or Demiey-Lie-
night insurance shares commissions with
his customers.
Nope, Jeff says. FEMA is the only
flood insurance provider, so the cost
is the same no matter what flood
insurance company you use. The
policies written by his agency are
supported by the federal government
through FEMA.
FEMA pays a commission to the
agencies that write their policies.
Jeff and his agency are sharing that
commission with their

You get seven percent O e-i 0
of your policy back 00 OVS0
the first year. Every w cste o a
subsequent year for t~gt little to sha
the next five years you it's happy to
receive one percent more back until "With the

Good Reasons to
Adopt an Older Cat
Friends of Strays has a special offer
for the months of May and June for
all adoptions of older cats. Anyone
adopting a cat that is over three
years old will receive a gift basket
with everything needed to take kitty
to their new forever home. All cats
have been neutered or spayed and
have been vaccinated.
There are many good reasons to
consider adopting an older cat,
including:
1. Older cats are already trained to
use a litter box.
2. Cats are already past the
rambunctious stage and are more
peaceful and calm than young
kittens.
3. Older cats are very grateful
for a home and usually make the
transition easily.
4. Finally, if you are older, having
an older cat makes just makes an
excellent choice.
Friends of Strays has several
beautiful, older cats that have been
at the shelter for some time. If you
can open your home to one of them
please come meet them! The shelter
is located at 2911 47 Avenue N. in
St. Petersburg. For more information
call 727-522-6566 or go the website

Attorney Keith Sanders,
Handles Bankruptcies with Experience and Sensitivity


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 helps to put people


more at ease and under-
stand that I have been
there and done that MY-
SELF."
"You know, in 99 per-
cent of bankruptcy cases
the situation is that bad
things happen to good
people. They have gone
through an expensive
health crisis or a divorce
or just got in over their
head with debt."
He began his career as
a staff attorney for the
U.S. Trustee in Atlanta.
He is licensed to practice
law in both Florida and
Georgia.
"I like what I do be-
cause I feel like I can
help people get a fresh
start," said Sanders.
"Since the initial con-
sultation is free, you re-
ally don't have anything
to lose to meet with me
and we can assess your
situation and see how
it might be best for you
to proceed. Bankruptcy
can be one solution to
getting back on your feet
financially, but it may
not be the best or only
solution for you.
Sanders has held a
number of seminars and


WrluiLIi pruitezsiuin pa-

ruptcy law in general,

gia.

Short Sale negotiations,
defense against foreclo-
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.

Should Government
Take Over BP?
If you're wondering whether the
government (our government)
should takeover BP Corporation,
recent incidents complementing the
review of the past 60 days or so
should dispel the notion.
While BP apparently fumbled a plan
they didn't have (our government
didn't have one either), the U.S.
government fumbled and stumbled
and appears to still be fumbling in
the effort to 1) stop the flow of oil
into the Gulf and 2) clean up what's
there. The first they had no plan
nor expertise as all have admitted.
The second the government's
bureaucracy simply couldn't cope.
Help offered by other countries
at the outset of the blow-out
was turned down because of a


combination of a lack of leadership,
an arcane law, and confusion about
what was needed. Nor did the
feds have the equipment, such as
booms and oil-burning apparatus,
they were supposed to have. When
state governments in Alabama and
Louisiana responded with actions of
their own, the feds thwarted them.
This included efforts to acquire oil
booms and to build artificial barrier
islands to protect the coast line.
The latest, and most grievous, was
to send back to port barges that
were vacuuming up the oil. The
violation? Not enough life jackets
and fire extinguishers. Talk about
bureaucracy.
This is not surprising. Governments
are bureaucracies and the usual net
results of their running anything
except war (and veterans might
question that) are usually poor.


Today private energy companies
in most truly democratic countries
compete against government
enterprises. Among these are
Russia, Venezuela, China, and
Mexico. I can guarantee that their
companies are less efficient, less
productive, and, above all, less safety
and environmentally conscious than
privately run companies.
Government ownership and its
bad effects were best illustrated
in the "old" communist countries.
In the 1970s, 80s, 90s and early
2000s I traveled to Russia, Poland,
Romania, Bulgaria, Hungary, the
Baltic countries, China and Cuba.
The pollution was horrible. In
Bulgaria the air was yellow and the
water undrinkable. Cuba's Havana
harbor is coated with oil and there
is pollution everywhere. China's
coal towns are covered with soot and
the air in some sections is almost
unbreathable. Pollution controls
always gave way to production
and the "aims of the state". The
environment was never atop the
agenda.
In this blow-out, BP appears
culpable though it's still a good
idea to wait for the investigation
rather than listen to the politicians.
Nonetheless, BP's in trouble. But, so
is the fed agency over seeing them.
It's not the lack of regulations, but
the enforcement or application of
them that appears to be the problem.
It might be good to repeat that
statement when considering more
regulations on business, health, the
environment and even guns. Look
first at the regulations on the books
and how they are enforced. Wait
before adding more regulations that
won't be enforced.
Finally, in response to oil still
pouring into the Gulf, President
Obama used the opportunity to push
for a new energy policy which called
for using less oil. Not a bad idea, but
it won't stop the leak, and whatever
the idea and the taxes that go with
it, it will not lessen our need (and it
is a need) for oil for decades to come.
The accompanying moratorium on
drilling isn't a practical solution
either.
In the meanwhile, have I missed it,
but is there a Florida state plan for
dealing with the blow-out?

Gulfport Centennial Countdown Continues!


00 Week Countdown teo 100 Years!
100 Week Countdown to 100 Years!


These houses were a sort of family compound at one point in Gulfport's
history. Where are they and when were they built? Answer next
week.


Think you know the answer?
Send us an email with your answer, name and
phone number to News@theGabber.com


In just 16 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.
*O*
LAST WEEK'S ANSWER:
Last week's photo was taken by Mr.
R.W. Caldwell, Jr., on a visit home from
his studies at M.I.T. in 1940. When the
dredge hit an old sulphur pocket, the
resultant stinking black smoke not only
turned the newly-painted casino a very
grim shade, it also tarnished the money
and silverware of every establishment
nearby. (This stench, the Times reported,
was for once "not caused by another town
political squabble.")

City of Gulfport
By Cathy Salustri
Q: Does Gulfport have an ordinance that prohibits panhandling on its
streets and corners and rights of ways? submitted by Margarete Tober
via Facebook
A: Gulfport Police Chief Rob Vincent says that the city ordinance
prohibiting loitering also covers panhandling.
"One of the elements of loitering is: 'accosts, approaches, or solicits from
other persons in any public place or in any place open to the public for the
purpose of begging, soliciting alms, or soliciting for immoral purposes',"
Chief Vincent explained.
The courts support this ordinance; they recently convicted a man who
police arrested after he repeatedly approached people in the area of
Gulfport Boulevard and 49th Street and asked for money. Although
police warned him to stop and gave him a ticket, he continued to beg, get-
ting himself a trip to jail, Vincent said.
Gulfport police officers prefer not take that route, though, Chief Vincent
said.
"Our officers are usually able to resolve problems with warnings and ap-
propriate social service referrals," the Chief explained.

2010 National Night Out
National Night Out is August 3. Gulfport Crime Awareness and Prevention
has stepped up to the plate for an event that evening. Our preliminary plan is
to gather at the Neighborhood Center for a kick off of the "Give Neighborhood
Crime and Drugs a Going-Away Party".
The kick off will be a walk to show a united effort of both municipalities
(Gulfport and St. Petersburg) to include residents and businesses from both
sides of 49th Street. The walk will start on 49th Street S. and 16th Avenue (in
front of the Neighborhood Center) and go south to the Tangerine Greenway
(Tangerine Avenue/18th Avenue S.). The Tangerine Greenway will then be
the site for the "Going Away Party". The intent is for community building,
education and a united effort.
If you would like more information or to provide suggestions, feel free to
contact Jeri Reed at 727-548-5566 (days), 727-327-3509 (evenings) or by email
at JRvolunteer@aol.com.

November Makes Great Summer Fun


Michael Edwards stars as the President
in American Stage Theatre Company's
production of David Mamet's new hit comedy,
"November," running through July 4
By Cathy Salustri

Just when we thought there were no
more jokes about the last presidential
administration, American Stage
presents us with "November", the
latest comedy from David Mamet.
"November", a short full-length play,
takes place entirely in the Oval Office,
where a president who almost certainly
will not win re-election struggles with


finding a legacy and pardoning turkeys
just before the election.
The president finds that, in his final
days before the election, his party no
longer backs him and he will return to
his hometown broke. In an effort to get
enough money to create a presidential
library, the president decided to sell
pardons. Instead of selling pardons
to criminals, however, he opts to sell
pardons to the two turkeys waiting in
the outer office with a representative
from the National Association of Turkey
and Turkey By-products Manufacturers
(played by Christopher Rutherford).
Although President Charles Smith
(played by Michael Edwards) looks
more like Dick ('hl.-.-y than George
W. Bush, the script leaves little doubt
who Mamet had in mind as he wrote
certain scenes, including bits where his
aide, Archer Brown (played by Wayne
LeGette) must remind him that yes, we
are at war with Iraq.
Regardless of political sympathies, this
show is all comedy and the small cast
does a good job of squeezing every last
laugh out of the script. Most notable of
all the players, Wayne LeGette delivers
a fantastic performance and keeps pace
with Edwards, both of whom spend
the entire show onstage. LeGette and
Edwards play off each other well and
kept the house laughing Saturday
evening.
The three supporting players -
Dwight Grackle (Giles Davies),
Clarice Bernstein (Sarah Gavitt) and
Rutherford-all help make this show


a delightful 90 minutes of poking
fun at the highest office in the land.
Although the entire part of Dwight
Grackle seemed a last-minute addition
to the script that the show didn't need,
Davies added a much-needed injection
of physical humor into the show.
The only other complaint was the
pl1. iy I,-hI I's gratuitous use of obscenity.
Granted, only one character- President
Smith- tends to use obscenity, but in
the first scenes he used it so much it
lost all meaning and shock value and
served as nothing but an annoyance.
Despite a few miniscule flaws,
everything fell into place as it generally
does at American Stage's new home, and
the audience showed their appreciation
heartily for Saturday evening's
performance. The sold out house
lavished applause and praise on the
production, the next-to-last show in the
season. Other reviewers compare this
show to Neil Simon, which does neither
playwright justice. Mamet is uniquely
Mamet, funny in his own way, although
Neil Simon fans will likely appreciate
this humor. Whether you like Mamet,
Neil Simon, or simply want an evening
out where you can laugh, "November"
makes a fine choice for an evening at
the theatre.
"November" runs Tuesdays through
Sunday, ending on July 4. Call
American Stage at 823-7529 for
showtimes and ticket prices, which
generally start at $26 and top out at
$45.

The Dry Tortugas: The Other "Gateway to the Gulf"


By Cathy Salustri


When Dr. Samuel Mudd fixed John
Wilkes Booth's broken leg, he earned
himself a vacation of sorts: some time
to commune with nature at Fort Jef-
ferson, 70 miles west of Key West in
the Dry Tortugas.
Odds are that Dr. Mudd didn't see
his time on the tiny island as any sort
of respite, because that's not how his
accusers intended the trip. Long be-
fore Fort Jefferson lured travelers
from the world over, it served as the
ultimate Alcatraz: an island for pris-
oners. It had no amenities: no fresh-
water, no hotels, no pools or spas, and
- most importantly no land nearby
for easy escape.

XA A ,.Today, the Dry
S A .Tortugas is
no longer a prison; instead, people
pay for the privilege of spending a
few hours wandering the crumbling
fort, snorkeling the reefy ruins of old
piers, and splashing in aquamarine
tropical water of this self-proclaimed
(and sensibly so) "Gateway to the
Gulf." Although it's harder to get to
than Gulfport, it earns its name the
same way it earned a fort: it guards
the Straits of Florida.
Bring plenty of sunscreen, a big
hat, and a swimsuit- this island's the
most fun when you're getting wet on
it. Our tour boat, the Fast Cat, pro-
vided drinking water, and we refilled
out water bottles before heading
ashore. Take 40 minutes to listen to
the crew's guided tour of Fort Jeffer-
son, because they know the history
as well as any of the


boats

of
than


park rangers. When you're done, grab
your underwater camera (disposable
or otherwise) and gape at the myriad
of sealife bursting with color, from
the tiny tangs to the gigantic tarpon,
just beneath the surface.

gJY ,.The Dry Tortugas
W ..H. ,. are some of the only
remaining undeveloped sandy beach-
es in Florida. Aside from a lighthouse
on Garden Key and the fort, there are
no buildings for 70 miles, and there
are only a couple of ways on (or off,
for that matter) the islands.
People seeking tropical seclusion
come to the Dry Tortugas; birders
come to see the nesting birds; history
buffs come to see the fort and take
the tour. The reason really doesn't
matter; just know that the Dry Tor-
tugas is one of the sweetest spots in
Florida, and everyone should see it at
least once. No trip to the lower keys
is complete without it, so put it on
the bucket list.

H O-,The National Park
W H Service manages
the Dry Tortugas, although it con-
tracts with two ferry boat services
to get guests out to the islands. For
those so inclined, passage to the is-
land via seaplane is possible as well.
Of course, anyone with a well-provi-
sioned boat can get to the island in-
dependent of the charter boats.

pTPart: Nothing com-
SBE pares to the solitude
of the island, surrounded by teal wa-
ters shimmering with life. On our
trip, we came nose to nose with tar-
pon, sand dollars the size of serving
platters, and all fish every color of
the rainbow.

WO part: Un-
VV.t I less you have
your own boat, you're going to share
that solitude with a couple hundred
of your closest friends. Even with
two ferries carrying people to the
Dry Tortugas, you can still find a se-
cluded spot.

I /I A rI question: The
iV L J. ferry boats
start at over $100. We traveled on the
Sunny Days "Fast Cat," where our
passage included breakfast, lunch,
soft drinks, water, snacks, masks,
snorkels, and fins. The Yankee Free-
dom offers similar passage, although
on a larger boat that will also have
more people on it. Find out more at
NPS.gov/drto, or contact the tour op-
erators directly at DryTortugasFer-

You & THE


LAWV"

By Robert J. Myers, Esquire
What is the Role
of a Personal
Representative
in Probate?
A personal representative is a
person or entity that is appointed
by the Probate Court to be the
overseer of the administration of a
deceased person's estate. A personal
representative is required by the
Probate Court to make sure that the
deceased's estate is administered in
accordance with Florida law.
Generally, a personal representative
is obligated to identify, accumulate
and protect those assets which are
part ofthe probate estate. Thisprocess
is also known as the marshalling of
probate assets. Because the personal
representative has a duty to the
beneficiaries of the probate estate
to protect assets in the estate, this
responsibility is court-supervised by
the filing of an inventory with the
Probate Court.
A personal representative is
required to publish a "Notice of
Administration" in a newspaper of

local circulation. This notice specified
who the personal representative and
attorney of the estate are as well as
initiates the creditor claims period
of ninety (90) days. The Notice
of Administration also states the
requirements of filing claims and
other papers relating to the estate.
A personal representative may object
to the claims of creditors as well as
defend lawsuits which arise against
a deceased person's estate.
Normally, a lawyer will be retained
to guide a personal representative
through the probate process. It
is the obligation of a personal
representative to hire an attorney
if the personal representative needs
assistance in the probate of an estate.
A personal representative is further
obligated to pay valid creditor claims
of the probate estate, pay taxes of
the estate, file estate tax returns and
distribute assets to beneficiaries of a
probate estate.

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 interces-
sor of all who invoke your special patronage 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 as-
sistance. Help me in my present urgent peti-
tion. 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 Glorias.

OH MOST BEAUTIFUL-Flower of Mt. Car-
mel, fruitful vine, splendor of heaven, blessed
mother of the son of God, immaculate virgin,
assist me in my necessity. Oh star of the sea,
help me and show me here you are my moth-
er. Oh, holy Mary, mother of God, Queen of
heaven and earth, I humbly beseech you from
the bottom of my heart to secure me in my ne-
cessity (make a request). There are none that
can withstand your power. Oh Mary, conceived
without sin, pray for us who have recourse to
thee. Oh Mary, conceived without sin, pray
for us who have recourse to thee. Oh Mary,
conceived without sin, pray for us who have
recourse to thee. Holy Mary, I place this cause
in your hand. Holy Mary, I place this cause in
your hand. Holy Mary, I place this cause in
your hand. Say the prayer for 3 consecutive
days and then you must publish it and it will be
granted to you. TT.D.

POWERFUL PRAYER TO HOLY SPIRIT -
Holy Spirit, you who solves all problems, who
lights all roads so that I can attain my goal, you
who give me the divine gifts to forgive and for-
get all evil against me and that in all instances
of my life you are with me, I want in this short
prayer to thank you for all things and confirm
once again that I never want to be separated
from you, even in spite of all material illusions.
I wish to be with you, in eternal glory. Thank
you for your mercy toward me and mine.
