Word of Mouth
Helps Put Out Small
Gulfport Fires
By Cathy Salustri
When Gulfport firefighters ar-
rived on the site of a small brush
fire at 5409 Delette Avenue South,
they found out about a similar fire
around the corner.
"When they arrived on the first
call there were bystanders outside
'saying there's another one down
the road'," Gulfport Fire Chief Jim
Marenkovic said. Firefighters found
a second brush fire one-tenth of a
mile north of the first, at 5414 30th
Avenue South.
Although Marenkovic noted simi-
larities between the two fires, call-
ing them "a trash fire, more or less,"
he stopped short of calling the fires
"There was not so much arson,"
the Chief said. He did call the fires
"suspicious" and said that the city's

Gulfport Youth
Joins Hands
Across the Sand
By Cathy Salustri
Cody Lemons, 8, holds up
a sign asking legislators
to "Stop Killing My Sea
STurtles." This young
Gulfportian joined many
others Saturday afternoon
4- at the second "Hands Across
.*.. the Sand" event this year.
While Mr. Lemons held
hands as part of the chain,
'I Ben Prieemore sat with a
drum circle and drummed.
H The drum circle drummed
the entire time the human
chain kept their hands
clasped together in protest.


Clam Bayou Town
Hall Meeting
By Cathy Salustri
On Tuesday evening, concerned
residents from both sides of Clam
Bayou attended a meeting where
city and state agencies discussed the
final plans for the Clam Bayou Trail
as well as the entire restoration.
"The purpose of this evening's
meeting is to make everyone familiar
with the project and the schedule of
the project," Brendan Lynch, a civil

engineer with St. Petersburg, told the
attendees shortly before encouraging
them to break onto groups to review
the projects.
The sponsoring agencies, including
the Southwest Florida Water
ManagementDistrict(SWFWMD), the
city of St. Petersburg, and the Florida
Department of Transportation, set
up stations around the room. One
station addressed amenities in the
park, another allowed residents to
talk about the stormwater ponds,
and yet another had more general
information about Clam Bayou.

Gulfport council members Jennifer
Salmon and David Hastings attended
the meeting, as did St. Petersurg
councilman Wengay Newton.
Although Mr. Lynch made a brief
announcement about the stations
set up around the room, several
in attendance took seats wand
appeared to wait for a presentation.
Councilman David Hastings said he,
too, expected to hear a presentation.
When a representative from one of
the agencies announced the group
would not gear a presentation, many
people left the meeting.
The Community Affairs
representative for SWFWMD, Cori
Cuttler, said that the agency recently
switched to the less formal style of
meeting to allow people to address
concerns one-on-one with the people
from the agency.

ST. PETE BEACH- The Public
Services department completed
improvements to a wastewater lift
station in the Belle Vista area. The
rehabilitation and repair work was
done within budget for $94,500.
The public services department
said prior to the updates there were
breakdowns at this station at least
once a week. There are now new
pumps and new electrical systems.
The system now runs quicker with
reduced flow and lower energy costs.

common with the ones in Ybor City
and that Gulfport didn't face a simi-
lar arson wave.
"There were two little fires that oc-
curred over the week here but noth-
ing since," he said.
Firefighters could not find any trace
of accelerant at either fire. The fires
did not damage either home.

Jennifer Salmon's
Town Hall meeting
By Cathy Salustri
Nine people from all four wards
attended Councilwoman Jennifer
Salmon's first town hall meeting on
Thursday, June 17.
"It worked out very well and it was
a very nice discussion. I'm looking
forward to doing it on probably a
quarterly basis," Councilwoman
Salmon said.
Topics raised included what
one person called "blight", or, as
Councilwoman Salmon described
it, "the general look of Gulfport";
the number of vehicles in people's

yards; how to increase participation
in the city's recycling program;
speed problems and limits on
neighborhood streets; Clam Bayou;
and how the city would respond
to oil on its shore (the Community
Emergency Response Team, CERT,
had a representative at the meeting
to handle this question.)
Three of the nine attendees came
from Councilwoman Salmon's home
ward (Ward Three); the rest came
from the city's other three wards.
"It was really constructive," the
councilwoman said of the meeting.
If any resident has concerns they
would like to bring Councilwoman
Salmon's attention, she encourages

Family Dollar Update

By Cathy Salustri
The Gulfport Plaza "has the big stuff done," according to Fred Metcalf, Gulfport Community
Development Director. Although Metcalf couldn't say definitely when the stores would open,
he said it wouldn't be beyond the realm of possibility for them to open by Labor Day.
When completed, the renovated space (formerly the Winn-Dixie) will house a Family Dollar
and a Save-A-Lot. 49th Street LLC paid just over $1.1 million for the plaza in February. The
owners filed paperwork to form the 49th Street LLC on December 31, 2009. The registered
agent for the owners, Jonathan P. Jennewein, also serves as the registered agent for the
Seabreeze Plaza Partnership in north Pinellas County.

Kacy Martell, Ellenton, works in
Gulfport: "I haven't made any plans
yet but will try to help in any way
I am capable. I know some people
who are active in the wildlife rescue
so I would be interested in that. I
am animal and environmentally
friendly so that would be my focus
of support. I've done some research
and heard about some bacteria that
actually eats the oil. But the studies
have only been done with a small
amount of both oil and bacteria.
I don't know if it would work on a
much larger scale and even if it
would be safe for the other marine
environment when it's broken down.
It seems like that might be a decent
solution if it works. All I know is
that I'm willing to help in any way
I can."

Barbie Pierson, St. Pete:
"Absolutely! I'll do whatever I
can to keep our beaches as clean
as possible. The oil spill has just
devastated so many of the beaches
up north in Louisiana, Mississippi
and parts of Northern Florida. As
a water conservationist, I'm just
horrified at the amount of total
destruction of the wetlands and eco
habitats. If the oil comes our way,
the desalination plants in Pinellas
County will likely have to shut
down; they can't separate the oil
from the water. It only takes one
quart of oil to foul 250,000 gallons
of water. Those plants contribute to
potable drinking water as well as
agricultural use. That will directly
affect us in a negative way not to
mention the poor wildlife and sea
animals. I'll do everything I can to
help with the cleanup; I have a three
year old son and I want him to have
a clean water supply when he grows

Kenny Groover, St. Pete: "I'm pretty new
to the area and don't know a lot of people yet.
But I think if there was a group of people
that I could feel comfortable with that were
going to do a beach cleanup or volunteer
somewhere, I would definitely help out
any way I could. I feel bad mostly for the
sea animals and wildlife like the crabs,
dolphins, sea turtles and fish. They're the
ones just minding their own business; it's
like they're getting hit by the stray bullet.
They can't defend themselves."

Kellie Kyser, Gulfport: "Oh, yeah,
absolutely... it kills me to see what's
happening to wildlife now. I'm an
animal lover and my focus would
primarily be on helping the wildlife.
They're the innocent ones. They can't
defend themselves. I haven't really
gotten that involved yet, but I know
about the work the Seabird Sanctuary
is doing. I know more and more people
are getting involved. I hope it doesn't
hit us like it hit the Louisiana and
the upper Florida coastline. It looks
really, really bad; it's just horrible.
I think about the turtles who have
already laid eggs and how they will
probably all die. They're already
endangered. The businesses all along
the water here have even started to
feel the pinch. People aren't renting
charters; the fishing boat captains
are directly affected and they're
losing business. The restaurants are
slow because people have cancelled
hotel reservations thinking the oil
is already here. It makes me sick to
hear their stories. And now it's just
a matter of time before it does gets
here. There's just too much out there,
under the water and on top, to think
that we won't be affected. It kills me
that the other states were waiting for
permission to put out boom off their
shoreline.. by the time BP agreed to
it, the oil was already there. What
they should have done was just do
it, then bill BP. The waiting cost
them valuable shoreline and bird
habitat. I know one thing; it's going
to be one hell of a big bill for BP and
Transocean once all this is done. I feel
Transocean is equally to blame; it was
their rig and their equipment. It's just
a mess!"

SPCA Pet of the Week
Hello I'm Lucy, and I'm 6 years old. I'm a beautiful
Bullmastiff with bronze eyes and a short dark brindle
coat. At first I'm a little unsure of new faces and places
like the shelter, but once I'm adjusted I really come out
of my shell. I'm very gentle and very tolerant so I can
live with pretty much anybody. I love to nuzzle like a
big cat and I'm very loyal to my master. I know many
commands like: sit, down, wait, stay and come. I'm
already crate trained and my leash skills are first rate.
I have been trained in a program call U.T.O.P.I.A. and it made me who I am
today. I would like to find my forever home. Stop by SPCA Tampa Bay, 9099
130 Avenue N. in Largo, or call 727-586-3591.

tSt 0oroscoDe Guide

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Some
people do their best work in phases,
editing bits and parts together into
a pleasing whole. You like to do it all
in one hot stint. Both are fine, but
this week you might get a little help
from an editor type. Accepting and
applying notes from a knowledgeable
person will take your work to the
next level.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). There are
a lot of songs in the world, but yours
is the most important because it's
yours. The song in your heart that
was just a verse a few days ago now
has a chorus. In a related matter,
someone adores you and wants to
be adored back. Finding novel ways
to share your love -- or just to flirt
-- will be a fun pastime.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You
tend to like things that involve a lot
of people at once, so the work-related
gathering that's on the schedule for
this week is right up your alley. It
can go whichever way you want it to
go -- you could create the opportune
moment for a bold move or just enjoy
an easy hang with people you like.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). If you
were a superhero, you'd be called
"Rulebender." Your acts of heroism
are committed against the tyranny
of hard deadlines, guidelines ...
and sidelines. This week, you'll
have another showdown with your
arch-nemesis, "Uptight Guy." Your
victory will free you -- and perhaps
him, as well!
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). If
you win, will the people around you
win, too? Hopefully, they think so.
Otherwise, you'll have a hard time
getting them on your side. This
week, your relationships have a
powerful impact on your ability to do
what you want to do with your life.
Formulate goals that include others
and will motivate them to motivate

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21).
If you're not feeling particularly
optimistic, don't worry. It doesn't
matter whether you think the glass
is half-empty or half-full. The fact is,
it's a huge glass and there is more
than enough liquid inside to quench
your thirst. So trust that things will
be provided for you this week, and
enjoy it when they are.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). If
you haven't found the opportunity
to fire up your motivation, it may be
that your current zone has gotten
too comfortable. Get out and explore.
New experiences, people and
stimulation will bring out your best.
The one who will ignite your passion
for life is likely a fire sign -- Aries,
Leo or Sagittarius.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18).
Muster up the courage to take a
chance. If it doesn't go how you want
it to go, no regrets. Never shouldda"
and definitely don't wouldda" Just
seize the moment. And if you don't,
it's either because you weren't ready
or because you thought better of it
-- no shame in that, either. Stand
proud behind your choices.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). No
one is immune to life's frustrations.
Sometimes the check really isn't in
the mail and the phone doesn't ring
when it's supposed to, or whenit does,
it's the wrong person on the line.
Your stellar attitude will help you
rise above these petty disturbances
and focus on what's going right in
your world -- an awful lot.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). There
is nothing wrong with finding out
you have limits. So many never
press against them in the first place.
Knowing when to stop is not the same
thing as giving up. And just because
you're not moving forward doesn't
mean you're moving backward. You
might have to stop what you're doing
to find a truer calling.


the Gabr. vr husa ic 98

TAURUS (April 20-May 20).
Feelings are neither right nor wrong,
neither logical nor illogical. They just
are. Instead of trying to fight them
or make them what you think they
should be, accept them. Only then
will you be able to work with them
and use them to your advantage.
You'll get help from a fellow earth
sign -- that's Capricorn or Virgo.
GEMINI (1 I.y 21-June 21). Imagine
your future the way you want it to
be. With the stars augmenting your
powers of visualization, it will be easy
and fun for you to do so. This opens
doors in your psyche. In the process,
you may come to the realization that
you have access to far greater wisdom
than you ever knew was inside you.
This Week's Birthdays: You are
accustomed to turning problems into
opportunities. But this year you don't
have to -- your opportunities will
come custom-made to you. You've
already laid the groundwork for this
to happen. Self-discipline increases
through this month. August brings a
proposal. You find a buyer for what
you're selling in September. Invest
in a hobby in November -- this move
will prove to be good for your health
and for your financial picture, too.
December brings a party for the

Audition for
"Sex and Sensibility"
Daniel Harris will be holding
auditions for a musical revue entitled
"Sex and Sensibility" on July 15 and
16 at 7 p.m. Auditions will be held

Daniel needs three strong singing
female actors who can move well: one
in her 20's, just entering the singles
scene; one in her 30's, a bit more
wiser and experienced; and one in her
40's or 50's, divorced and re-entering
the dating scene. Be prepared to
sing a portion of a ballad as well as
an upbeat song. Bring music in your
key, a resume and a photo. A pianist
will be provided.

Many Thanks to All
Dear Editor: As the month of June
comes to an end, I wish to commend
the city of Gulfport who recommend-
ed that we call the Senior Center.
When huge trees fell into our yard
after a storm (from a height of three
stories!) they recommended Tim Cop-
pola to us. Tim is a fine gentleman
who has a tree service in our area.
Thanks so much to all for helping
two seniors in our time of need! He
even cut and removed a huge branch
that fell from a neighbor's property
over our fence and onto our property.
Thanks to all these fine folks!
John & Frances Gonzalez

Mysterious Debris at Gulfport's
Clam Bayou Kayak Launch
By Cathy Salustri

"- When Kurt Zuelsdorf
went down to the kayak
launch at Clam Bayou
Friday morning, he
found the launch site
littered with trash and
covered with a filmy
i substance.
"I woke up today and
..o ccame down to Clam
S-.- Bayou and found my
S .. launch site in such
e S Florida_ ......... "Management... D disrepair that it actually
breaks my heart," he
reported in a video in his web site.
By the day's end, Gulfport city manager Jim O'Reilly arranged for park staff
to clean the debris from the site. Additionally, Mr. Zuelsdorf said, many locals
also assisted with cleanup efforts.
The Southwest Florida Water Management District (SWFWMD) contacted
Gulfport Public Works Director Don Sopak and asked for assistance cleaning
up the floatables by the launch site. An email from Mr. Sopak to Mr. O'Reilly,
sent Friday afternoon, indicated that Janie Hagberg, a SWFWMD employee
working on the Clam Bayou restoration project, believed the debris came from
stormwater runoff and not the restoration project.
Mr. Zuelsdorf said that he'd seen this sort of debris on a smaller scale in the
past during certain tide cycles. This debris seemed connected with what he
called "a gooey mess up to four inches thick." He said he couldn't identify the
"Whatever was binding it together was the question mark," he said.
Saturday Mr. Zuelsdorf he found a pile of fresh grass clippings by the launch
"I can guarantee you it didn't come from the city mowers. It was a different
kind of grass. It was a standard fancy grass like you'd find in a manicured
yard- St. Augustine. There's no St. Augustine growing in Clam Bayou Nature
Park," he said.

Exhibit Focuses on the
'Magic' of Early Florida
TAMPA-At an early age, Hermann
Trappman became fascinated with
the origins of Florida and its early
inhabitants. Eventually, he turned
to art to express his findings about
the distant past. As he acquired
more scientific information, his
illustrations became increasingly
accurate. Suddenly, his sketches of
the Florida he once knew exploded
into shifting plates, becoming part
of a dynamically changing Earth.
Entire environments developed
then disappeared. Humans arrived;
struggling with Florida's challenging
landscape, until they finally
constructed complex civilizations.
Many of these insights will come
to life when the Tampa Bay History
Center presents the exhibition
Obscured by Time: The Magic of
Florida, featuring the art of Hermann
Trappman, opening Saturday, July
10th. The exhibition will detail the
natural history of Florida through
Trappman's compelling paintings,
Gabber July I July 7, 2010

artifact replicas, fossils, andexamples
of the resources utilized by ancient
Native Americans.
Obscured by Time offers a glimpse
of early Florida, its native peoples
and geography prior to European
contact in the 1500s. A self-taught
artist, Trappman's work explores the
life of Florida's early peoples and is
based on artifacts, fossils and other
archeological evidence found along
the shores of Florida.
This exhibition will be in the
History Center's Third Floor Gallery
through September 26th. A variety
of programs and workshops are
also planned. For more information,

So metatin on my mindr
a By Bill Northrop BNorthrop@theGabber.com

I haven't met anyone who is in
favor of oil polluted beaches. Duh!
And, I read this past week that a
couple of hundred beach-goers locally,
as part of a nation-wide movement,
joined hands on the beaches of Pass-
a-Grille to protest oil drilling.
I'm assuming a couple of things:
that they were beach-goers and that
they were opposing oil drilling off the
Florida coast. It's difficult to tell these
days about the political motivation
or direction of any group. Were these
people just ordinary people trying to
keep the beaches clean? One person
told the St. Pete Times that he didn't
know how to explain to his six and
10-year-olds what might happen to
the beaches for fear of ruining their
memories of the beaches. Huh?
Whatever the political motivations,
the demonstration got coverage with
little in-depth probing. Think G20

"demonstrations" in Toronto. I'm
not saying that holding hands on
the beach has any comparison to the
wanton destruction of property by
the thug anarchists who show up at
world economic summits. What I am
saying is that perhaps we do need
to take the discussion of oil drilling
beyond the beaches.
For instance, did the demonstrators
use cars to get to the beaches? That's
a contribution to pollution itself.
Exhaust fumes pollute the air, as does
deteriorating rubber on the tires. As I
wrote, no one wants polluted beaches,
but almost everyone wants fuel for his
car. If they are Americans they want
cheap fuel. Yes, $3 to $4 a gallon is
cheap relative to what others in the
world pay unless you live in Iran or
Venezuela where gasoline prices are
dictated by politics not supply and

More important, look at the beaches
themselves. Almost all the beaches
on our coasts have been polluted
from the inside out. Roads, houses,
commercial buildings, hotels,
restaurants, have torn up our barrier
islands in numerous ways. Permanent
structures stop the movement of
sand that is characteristic of barrier
islands. The islands that should move
don't and sand is washed away.
Structures restrict the movement
of wind and the movement of sand.
So, we have to replenish the beaches
which is something we all seem to
accept (it is at someone else's expense
and protects our investments). The
sand is not the same and "replenish"
is not the same as "restore". We also
accept the concept of subsidized
insurance. But, we're protecting
our "way of life". Actually, it's not
the way of life of everybody in this
country, but it generally costs them
to support us. While I suppose this
general sharing of "help us" dollars
goes both ways, I'm not certain it's a
tit for tat arrangement.
The fact is that our barrier islands
probably should be free from any
development at all. Our main coast
lines would be better protected as
would the wild-life above and below
the water in and around our islands.
If we are to be really serious about the
environment, we need to scale back
our so-called "standard of living".
Simply put, at least in America we
have too much of everything. So, stop
Of course we won't and can't and
shouldn't. Humans do not want
to move backwards. We like little
corrections here and there, but we
like to move forward. And, right
now, we can't keep moving forward
without oil. So, as in everything, we
have to accept some things and not
others. In other words, compromise.
And, isn't it a little bit hypocritical
to ask others to drill off their coast so
we can live and play without worry
on our coast? As they say today, "just

Not extras from a Rudolph Valentino silent film, these riders were

In just 15 weeks, Gulfport will
celebrate the centennial of its
incorporation, October 12, 1910. We'll
be reminding you every week with an
interesting old photograph from the
collection of the Historical Museum. See
if you can identify the people, places, and
above all the decade of each picture as it
comes along. To make it a little bit of a
challenge, we won't publish the correct
caption until the following week.
The house at 5420 29th Avenue, shown
last week, was the home of Ebin and Ida
May Steele Drumm in the 1920s. Later
they moved to the back house and their
in-laws, the Alonzo Steeles, lived in
the front place. In the late 1930s, both
buildings were occupied by folks connected
with the Gulfport Tribune, the Barlows
and the Wirts.

C i ATy to city government?
Email your request to News@theGabber.com
By Cathy Salustri
City of Gulfport
Q: How much money is Gulfport obligated to towards pensions for past
and current employees? How does it compare to a comparable local town?
- Poul Hornsleth
A: Well, first let's explain how Gulfport pensions work. The city has
three plans: one for the fire department, one for the police department, and
one for all other employees except for department directors, the city clerk,
and the city manager. The city pays its four non-public safety department
directors and the city clerk 12% of their gross salary into a 401a that those
employees manage individually. The city manager does the same thing,
except the city pays him 15%.
The fire department, police department, and general employees each
have their own trusts, managed by the employees as well as one coun-
cil-appointed citizen for each of the three trusts. The city contributes the
money and the trustees manage the plan themselves. The trustees cur-
rently manage the plans by hiring professional plan managers (the fire
department currently uses Salem Trust while the general employees and
the police department use 5/3) to invest the money.
Between the three funds and the 401a plans for the directors and two
charter employees (the city attorney receives no pension or retirement
plan from Gulfport), the city will pay roughly $831,000 this year to keep
current, past and projected future pensions solvent. This breaks down to
7.2% of each salary in the fire department, 15.5% for the police depart-
ment, and 15.9% of each general employee's salary.
"Gulfport's in a very good position," Administrative Services Director Dan
Carpenter said of the plans. Although he said he couldn't make compari-
sons to smaller cities like Safety Harbor without extensive research, he did
have figures for some local cities available.
Clearwater spends about 25% per employee salary, and St. Petersburg's
firefighter pension plan costs the city over 60% of the payroll. That means

Get Global and Host an
International Student
Foreign high school students are
scheduled to arrive soon for academic
semester and year homestay
programs, and the sponsoring
organization needs a few more local
host families. The students are
anxiously awaiting news of their new
families. This is the last chance for
these young ambassadors to fulfill
their life-long dreams.
According to Pacific Intercultural
Exchange (P.I.E.) President, John
Doty, the students are all between
the ages of 15 and 18 years, are
English-speaking, have their own
spending money, carry accident and
health insurance, and are anxious to
share their cultural experiences with
their new American families. P.I.E.
currently has programs to match
almost every family's needs, ranging
in length from one semester to a full
academic year, where the students
attend local public and private high
P.I.E. area representatives match
students with host families by
finding common interests and
lifestyles through an informal
in-home meeting. Prospective host
families are able to review student
applications and select the perfect
match. As there are no "typical" host
families, P.I.E. can fit a student into
just about any situation, whether it
is a single parent, a childless couple,
a retired couple or a large family.
Families who host for P.I.E. are
also eligible to claim a monthly
charitable contribution deduction
on their itemized tax returns for
each month they host a sponsored

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.

documentaries, three student
films and three animated films.
Ten countries are represented by
films at the festival: USA, UK,
Germany, China, Singapore, Iceland,
Netherlands, Serbia/Montenegro,
Spain and Canada.
Gabber July 1 July 7, 2010

Titles include: the Dutch short
film Blossom, about a young woman
unable to speak and her challenges
interacting in a speaking world; the

animated short film, described as
a mix of sauna and disco; Severing
the Soul, an American experimental
documentary exploring the
psychosurgery movement of the
1930s to 1960s, including found

footage about Rosemary Kennedy's
1941 lobotomy procedure; and
The Symmetry of Love, a British

You & THE

By Robert J. Myers, Esquire
Your Last Will and
Many otherwise successful and
diligent people overlook what could
be one of the largest tax-saving
devices available to them during
their entire lifetimes: a will. Wills
are the primary document for
transferring wealth upon a person's
death. It is the document in which
you specify how, to whom and
when you wish to have all of your
earthly belongings distributed.
Although this is a vital document,
many people procrastinate or defer
having one drafted. Consequently,
many people die without the benefit
of their specific instructions being
carried out.
If you die without a will, you die
"intestate" or without a last will and

testament. If this occurs, your estate
will be distributed according to the
probate laws of the State of Florida
if you reside in Florida. More than
likely, this distribution will not
be according to your wishes. This
could also cause problems in your
immediate family due to disputes
over who was meant to receive what,
what proceeds go to your spouse as
well as any intended charitable
In drafting a will, several factors
must be taken into consideration.
These include, but are not limited
Specific instructions designed
to distribute your estate to your
intended beneficiaries.
- Provisions for a guardian(s) to
serve in your capacity if you have
minor children.
A nomination for a personal
representative or executor to carry
out your wishes in conjunction with
the court.
Instructions regarding the
subsequent transfer of wealth on a
tax-free or deferred basis through
the Unlimited Marital Deduction or

Unified Credit as well as other tax
savings strategies.
A competent attorney should
be employed for the drafting of a
will. While there exist many do-it-
yourself products on the market
which do provide presumably valid
documents, there is no substitute for
professional advice and sound legal
Once your will is finalized, it may
be changed as you deem necessary to
reflect your ever changing situation.
Such changes may be based upon a
birth or death in the family, a divorce,
change of residence or change of
intended beneficiaries. Such changes
or codicils must be executed with
the same formalities as a will, but
are usually not as involved as the
drafting of the original document.
Even without major life changes,
wills should be reviewed every two
to three years to ensure that your
intentions will, in fact, be carried
out upon your death.

Volunteers gathered in Hurley Park for the second annual seats planting on St. Pete Beach. Equipped with gloves, hand shovels, sun block,
bottled water and hats volunteers planted sea oats from 15th Avenue to 22nd Avenue.
The volunteers planted about 5,000 seedlings and 50 one-gallon plants. With adequate water about 75 to 80 percent of the plants will make
it, said Public Services Director Steven Hallock.
The vital dune plants collect blowing sands. The sea oats provide cover for many living organisms as well as food for migrant birds. They help
form and maintain sand dunes helping to control beach erosion. The Pinellas County Department of Environmental Management donated the
sea oats for the renourishment of the beach. The city's beach stewardship committee helped coordinate the June 26 event.

By Cathy Salustri
Patrons noticed two things different
at Peg's Cantina Saturday afternoon:
first, the restaurant opened early to
serve lunch and second, the food cost
more. Both of these differences had
to do less with profit than they did
The only reason Peg's opened for
lunch, Peg Wesselink and Tony Smith
said, was to host a unique fundraiser.
The staff working volunteered
their time, working instead for tips
only, and restaurant donated seven
percent of the day's sales (as well as
all the difference between the regular
prices and the fundraiser prices) to
the Suncoast Seabird Sanctuary,
who pledged to help if the oil reaches
the west coast.
So why the higher prices? A close
look at the menu- created only for the
fundraiser- shows that the elevated
prices reflected the carbon points
associated with each meal.
Carbon points represent
environmental impact; the higher the
point value on a food, the more carbon
dioxide it emits in its production. For
example, imported beers cost more
because they travel further and

rbon-savvy meals
thus use more oil,
which gives them
a larger carbon
footprint and more
carbon points. Dr.
Smith, a former
policy professor,
explained that
his locally brewed
beer had the
smallest carbon
footprint because
he made it locally

bike to Peg's to
do so, giving an
even smaller
carbon footprint

footprint. He added that a McDonalds
cheeseburger Happy Meal uses
enough carbon points (3300) to use up
most of the 4500 points suggested for
the average American's daily diet.
At the day's end, Peg's raised

Black Jack's Second Chance
Clam Bayou Dog is No Longer Feral

said she'd

neighborhoods and going into Clam
Ms. Barrett took the dog, later
named Black Jack, to a local vet,
where she discovered that while he
only had minor injuries from the car
accident, he had heartworms.
"He's been through heartworm
treatment, which hasn't been easy
on him since the worms were so bad.
His stomach is swollen, as happens
sometimes with dogs where the
worms have been worse, and he may
have congestive heart failure. We
hope it will not be permanent," Ms.
Barrett says.
Despite his time in Clam Bayou and
his illness, Black Jack adapted to life
with his foster family.
"He... turned into a very sweet
and friendly dog," Ms. Barrett says,
adding that he is quite protective of

his foster family.
How did Black Jack end up a
stray? No one knows for sure, but
his heartworms could
have been the reason.
"It is my experience
with rescue and big
dogs that when the
; owners discover (the
dogs) haveheartworm,
they dump the dogs,"
Ms. Barrett adds.
She will continue to
h oversee Black Jack's
'. treatment, currently
at $400 and climbing
tht i n'~- land, once he recovers
*i from heartworms, will
get him the rest of his
shots and have him neutered.
Black Jack currently lives with a
foster family, but he can't stay there
forever. Ms. Barrett wants people to
consider adopting him even though
he came from Clam Bayou.
"Not all the dogs (in Clam Bayou)
are necessarily aggressive," she
says. "He is friendly now. It is
possible the he belonged to a pack
that is no longer, or the pack did
not accept him, or maybe he lost his
partner and became a loner."
"He's a really sweet dog."

By Melissa Lattman
Using my pointer finger I measured
the distance between the young boy's
ear and where the plastic frame
curved. The eyeglasses bobbled
slightly down his face. Realizing the
need to secure the fragile eyeglasses
on the active child's face I waved the
plastic frames over the heat from
the candle. The plastic softened and
I remolded the frame. Making sure
it was cool enough to go back over
the delicate skin of the child's ear we
tried the fit again. I bobbed my head
up and down getting the boy to try
once again to make sure the glasses
would stay on his head. He smiled
broadly as the eyeglasses stayed pu,t
tracing with his fingers the curve
of the glasses over his ears as his
parents and sister watched under the
bougainvillea arches of Lunahuana's
central square.
Along with 14 team members I
journeyed in mid-June by plane
then bus to Lunahuana, Peru with
duffle bags stuffed with 3,000 pairs
of eyeglasses. Over five days our
team nurses checked 652 sets of
eyes looking for cataracts and other
conditions that would not be helped
with eyeglasses.
Our team testers pointed at eye
charts as people moved their hands
up, down, and sideways matching
what they saw on the charts. Once

team members
in dispensing
checked 876
pairs of glasses using distance charts
and printed text to make sure we
found the right strength to help the
person see.
Then the other "fitter" and I
adjusted the bridges and earpieces
so the glasses did not slip or were
not too tight. With glasses in hand
or on their faces people could sing or
talk with local missionaries before
heading back home.
People came over five days gaining
the ability to read the newspaper
or faraway billboards. I gained a
renewed appreciation to take a deep
breath and enjoy the moments-
remembering that life is as much
the journey as the destination. Many
images filter through my mind-- the
views of the foothills of the Andes,
smiling faces and shining eyes,
cheery flowers poking through the
dirt and the boisterous dogs guarding
grids of the city's block.

Hands Across a Sham
Know, I know. I can hear it as I
type these words: how dare I call
last Saturday's event a sham.
Those who attended will tell you it
was a beautiful demonstration of ...
well, something. I'm not sure what.
I know that everyone there seemed
pretty passionate about stopping
drilling off Florida's coast. And, hey,
I'm all for that. Let's stop it right
now. But the reality is, there's too
much hypocrisy surrounding even
events like these for that to happen.
Look, I applaud passion; I am
passion's biggest fan. And I'm
not trying to belittle your grand
gesture Saturday, but I do hope you
understand that Saturday's event
was only that: a gesture.
People drove to the event. The event
organizers handed out plastic bottles
of water. Someone hired a banner
plane to fly up and down the beaches,
towing an anti-offshore-drilling
banner. All these things require oil by
the truckload, which, funny enough,
needs oil to ship the oil. As far as I
can tell, BP and other oil companies
directly benefited financially from
this international event.
Let's put it into one of those math
problems we all hated in junior high:
If 12,000 Floridians drove an average
of two miles to participate in Hands
Across the Sand, and each protestor
consumed one bottle of water during
the event, how many gallons of oil
would BP have to pump out of the
Gulf to power the protesters' cars and
produce the plastic water bottles?
Don't bother doing the math.
I wouldn't have a problem with
this if the protest stopped the
practice, but I think we've gotten
confused somewhere along the way.
Government can't even stop tobacco
farmers from growing tobacco, and
far fewer Americans smoke than
drive. What on earth makes you
think the government is going to
stop oil exploration? There's too
much money changing hands; couple
that with the potential for lawsuits
for lost revenue and you and I both
Gabber July 1 July 7, 2010

know that the federal and state
governments aren't about to staunch
the flow.
I know my attitude might upset
you. Politicians promised us, you
may start to say, but before you
finish that sentence, stop. Oh, sure,
Saturday saw plenty of political
posturing and promises. What
a down-home opportunity for
grandstanding. I believe our city
officials when they say they won't
vote for drilling; I even might believe
county commissioners. Here's the
thing, though: all the people who
spoke to our city Saturday? The
school board candidates, county
commissioner Barbara Sheen Todd,
Gulfport's own very fine mayor Mike
Yakes? They don't actually get to
vote on oil exploration. So, you know,
good for them for taking a stand, but
it won't stop the oil from suffocating
Apalachicola oysters or painting
its carbon footprint over anhinga,
dolphin, and mackerel. It won't keep
the panhandle fishermen in business,
and it won't wash the beaches clean.
Right about now I'm sure most
of you are calling me a hopeless
misanthrope, ahatefulcynicwholacks
compassion for the human condition.
I beg to differ. I used to be like you,
ready to march on Washington,
sign a petition protesting genetic
research on mollusks, or stage a
sit-in for dolphin-safe energy. But
somewhere along the way I started
seeing all these causes as what they
were: shams that detracted from the
business of, as so many people like to
call it, "saving" the planet.
BP acts in the best interest of its
bottom line. I won't address criminal
concerns or whether it was morally
or ethically right for them to do what
they did, because that- unfortunately-
doesn't matter. What matters is
economics: supply and demand
and profit and loss. The minute oil
production becomes something that
doesn't bring a profit, I promise you
BP- and every other oil company- will
stop drilling. No government agency
will revoke permits, no groups will

circulate a petition, and no protests
occur: they will just pull up stakes
and go home. Take away the profit
and you take away the problem.
If you want to hit BP where it
hurts, don't bother holding hands on
the beach. They'll just scoff at our
ineffective methods as we fuel our
cars before heading out to the beach.
Instead, stop using their product.
Is it possible? Yes, but not practical.
Strive instead to reduce consumption.
Eat local. Think about how things
are made. Of course, there's the
biggie: drive less. And don't kid
yourself with an electric car: where
do you think electricity comes from?
Progress Energy has three coal and
oil plants in Florida: Crystal River,
Anclote, and Suwanee.
So try carpooling, or bicycling, or
trading in that SUV for a snappy
little Miata. Many scooters get well
over 100 miles per gallon. Buy locally
grown food, and stop drinking water
sold in those convenient little plastic
Overwhelming, isn't it? It takes
much less work to attend the
occasional protest or sign a petition.
But you won't change a damn thing
that way. If you want to change
things, really change things, forget
about government. They won't
help you. Administrations change,
and policies shift with the tides.
Government should keep us safe
from crime, provide strong schools
and protect us from foreign invasions.
Despite what we'd like to think, our
Constitution has no verbiage about
marine ecosystems or environmental
high grounds. That part's up to us,
and we can't have it both ways.
Instead, put your money where
your heart is. Change the world? Not
likely, despite what we'd so dearly
love to believe. Change your carbon
footprint? That's the first step. You
can't drive your Ford Explorer to the
oil protest and think you're making
a difference, and you can't enjoy
French wine, German cheese, and
Iowa steaks and think that your
signature on a petition matters.

RUSH'S Reality

A satirical look at the world around us.

Talk to Your Doctor

Iam probably the poster child
for the pharmaceutical ads on
TV. At least my doctor seems to
think so. She's a doll. I only see her
every six months to get refills on my
prescriptions, still she knows enough
about my personal life to show some
interest in a kinda old-fashioned
caring sort of way. She always makes
a point of asking me "So how are
things going?". It's my fault, really,
because I told her EXACTLY how
things were going. And then we had
this conversation:
Her: Anne, do you think you could
you be depressed?
Me: Hell, no! Why would you even
think that?
Her: You seem irritable, for one.
Me: I am NOT irritable! I am
justifiably outraged and incensed
when things don't run as smoothly
as I know they should.
Her: Well, like what for example?
Me: Why should I have to make a
special trip to my new Publix which
used to be an Albertsons because my
new and improved in-the-process-of-
a-Publix Winn-Dixie was out of a
simple staple such as hamburger
meat? Why is that my lawn guy to
whom I pay hard-earned money
should show up just before code
enforcement did?
Her: You mentioned you're having
trouble sleeping?
Me: Yeah, me and 50 million other
Americans, most of whom are not
depressed either. Besides, sleep is
overrated. Everyone knows that high
achievers get less than six hours
of sleep, and all my close friends
and family know how driven I am.
General Mc( c'hy -1.il reportedly only
slept for four.
Her: Yeah, and look what happened
to him.
Me: Rolling Stone, who'd've thunk
it? Look. I'm sure I just need a new
mattress. And it would be helpful if
I could get through the nights when
I do sleep without dreaming that I'm

desperately searching for a bathroom
while wearing my favorite jeans.
Thank goodness I usually wake up!
Her: So you're having BCI?
Me: What's that? (I hate when she
throws that technical lingo at me. Is
the whole world one big acronym?)
Her: Bladder Control Issues.
Me: No, my bladder works just fine.
Really, really fine, thank you very
much. In fact, some might say I have
an overachieving bladder. It's really
just my dreams...
Her: You mentioned you dropped
the ball this month in terms of your
paperwork and bill due dates and
such. That sounds to me like you
might be experiencing a difficulty in
concentrating. What do you think?
Me: I think that paying bills is not fun.
And just because I was a little less
diligent than usual this month only
means that I was a tad disorganized,
kinda like those tropical systems
out in the gulf this time of year.
Besides, it's not as though there'd be
a county-wide blackout if I don't pay
my electric bill on time.
Her: You mentioned tropical systems.
Going with your weather analogy,
are you aware that meteorologists
sometimes refer to those as
depressions, so...
Me: Oh, for Godssakes, would you
get off that?!
Her: Fair enough. I see you've gained
weight. Do you know that dramatic
changes in weight, in either direction,
can be a sign of...
Me: And you wonder why I'm
irritable? Look! You yourself told
me last fall that my weight gain was
due to my age and metabolism and
my total lack of physical activity
of any kind. Whatsoever. Besides,
did it ever occur to you that maybe
I garner immense pleasure from
Mr. Good Bars, Nestle Crunches,
Snickers, ice cream, (oh, who am I
kidding?) all things chocolate, salty
and fried. Huh?
Her: OK. Have it your way. Speaking
of diet, any problems with digestion?

Me: Well, sometimes when I drink
beer I get heartburn.
Her: Have you ever thought about
not drinking beer?
Me: No, coz it happens when I eat
hot sauce or green peppers, too.
Her: I see. Any problems with your
joints? I see you have a family history
of osteoporosis and arthritis.
Me: Well, my knees aren't what they
used to be, meaning that I can no
longer watch the Rays play baseball
without feeling agony for the catcher
behind home plate. But in terms of
family history, that's only on my
mother's side and only when she was
Her: When was your last period?
Me: Six years ago.
Her: Hmm. Well, Anne, our allotted
three minutes are up. As your
doctor, I can assure you that there
are medications that can improve
the quality of your life. Medicine has
come a long way in recent years. I
can give you some prescriptions.
Me: Write away, doctor, write away.
She gave me scripts for Cymbalta for
depression, and the accompanying
Abilify just to make sure, Ambien for
sleep, VesiCare for bladder control,
Prilosec for heartburn, and Boniva
for my joints, all to the tune of about
$3,000 a month.
I pride myself on being a savvy
consumer and my research found
that the side effects of Cymbalta and
Abilify included suicidal thoughts
which seemed a whole lot worse
than how I'm feeling now, even on
an irritable day, so I ripped those
up. The instructions for Ambien said
to only take it when I can devote a
full eight hours to sleep and since I
can't sleep, that seemed pointless.
One of the side effects of VesiCare is
constipation and I don't want to trade
one problem down there for another.
Prilosec is made by the company who
downsized my sister so I don't want
to patronize them. I'm old enough to
remember Sally Field as The Flying
Nun but the label said that when
taking once-monthly Boniva you
have to be able to stand for an hour.
And I just don't think with my level
of physical inactivity that I can do
that, even on a once-monthly basis.
So, I threw them all away. And the
only thing I'm popping tonight is a

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 forget 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. The
person must say this prayer for 3 consecutive
days. After 3 days the favor requested will be
granted, even if it may appear difficult. This
prayer must be published immediately after
the favor is granted, without mentioning the
favor, only your initials should appear at the
bottom. T.T.D.
