Raw Sewage Flows Into Boca Ciega Bay
For 24 hours, a manhole overflowed and drained into the bay on St. Pete Beach
By Cathy Salustri
At noon on the 4th of July, water bubbled
out from two manhole covers: one in front of
6161 Gulf Winds Drive on St. Pete Beach, and
a second south of that one on Gulf Boulevard.
The city dispatched a police officer to the
second site.
By that night, the smell of human waste
permeated the air, one Sylvette resident
noted. A call to the city's non-emergency

St. Pete Beach
Fireworks Glitch
There was no city fireworks display
in St. Pete Beach on the 4th of July
due to a technical glitch. The fire-
works display slated for launch from
Upham Beach was called off around
10:10 p.m. It was something with
the wiring, City Manager Mike Bon-
field said.
The vendor will give the city a full
refund. They also plan to give the
city a free fireworks show at a date
to be announced, Bonfield said.

City Layoffs
ST. PETE BEACH- In an effort to
streamline costs the city eliminated
three positions and added one posi-
tion recently.
In the Public Services Department
two jobs--the contract and grant ad-
ministrator and the utility permits
administrator were eliminated. One

Budget Workshop
GULFPORT- The city will hold
a budget workshop at 5 p.m. on
Thursday, July 15.

Tax Time Arrives
in Gulfport!
GULFPORT- The city voted on a
proposed millage rate that will not
exceed 3.8399 mills. Currently,
property owners pay 3.4742 mills.
One mill equals roughly one dollar
for every thousand dollars of taxable
value. The cap on the new millage
rate means that the city of Gulfport
will not tax property owners more
than $3.84 per thousand dollars of
appraised value.

Traffic Regulation
on Tangerine
GULFPORT- Police cannot lower
speed limits along Tangerine without
measuring actual observed speeds
and setting the speed limit at what
85% of those driers drive. 85% of
drivers on Tangerine went 31. "The
problem is with the speed limit, not


the cars." There is nothing, he says,
that would justify lowering the speed
limit.
"He's telling his officers not to stop
people unless they're going 36." -
Hastings
"I wasn't going to get that specific so
that everybody knew it," Chief Vin-
cent
The city will not install stop signs.
Hastings and King voted against it;
Mayor Yakes cast the deciding no
vote. The state says stop signs should
not be used as speed enforcement de-
vices.

Gulfport Automatically
Included in Possible
Extended Liquor Hours
GULFPORT- According to Attorney
Andrew Salzman, if the county's
effort to extend hours for alcohol sales
succeeds, the city will have to take no
further action to extend the hours
during which stores can sell alcohol.
Any city can choose to opt out, and,
Salzman told council, if the county
opts not to extend hours, Gulfport
can do so on its own.

Sewage, from front page
police line confirmed that the city
knew about the sewage, which
overflowed from the sanitary sewer
into a nearby storm drain.
St. Pete Beach workers arrived at the
site shortly after noon on Monday, 24
hours after police responded to calls
about the raw sewage.
Steve Hallock, the Public Works
director for St. Pete Beach,
completed an Illicit Discharge Field
Report for the Florida Department
of Environmental Protection. The


report states that ten gallons of cloudy
sewage came from one manhole. The
report did not mention the second
manhole.
Alarm logs for the city's pump
stations (simply put, waste collection
and pumping sites) indicate that city
started receiving thigh water alerts
on Saturday July 3.
"We used our vacuum truck to suck
up as much of the spill as possible
and cleaned the curb line. We have no
way to meter or determine how much
leaked out of the manhole but based
on visual inspection do not consider it

significant. What we did not vacuum
up was highly diluted and mainly
due to the stormwater leaking into
the wastewater collection system,"
Mr. Hallock said.
Mr. Hallock says that the combination
of heavy rains and construction on
the St. Petersburg lift station created
the sewage discharge.
"The backup in the wastewater
collection system was due to the
very heavy rain and a lack of
bypass pumping availability at St.
Petersburg lift station #61. Rain
water leaked into the collection
manholes, pipe joints, et cetera,
and the lift station could not keep
up. Once another bypass pump
was installed at the lift station we
were able to pump down the entire
wastewater collection system and
return to normal operations," he
said.
Although the city had a police officer
stationed at the manhole directly
south of the one the city worked on
Monday, Mr. Hallock says that his
staff said only one manhole leaked.
He calls the event a "very unique,
one-of-a-kind situation."
The overflow drained to storm drains
one block from Boca Ciega Bay.
Labels on the drains indicated that
the drains emptied into the bay.
The city will not issue a water
quality advisory.

"Sex and Sensibility" on July 15 and
16 at 7 p.m. Auditions will be held

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.
The play is a humorous look at the
dating scene in New York City by
three single ladies of various ages.
The show deals with relationships
and situations exemplifiedby 21 songs
including: Mr. Right, Mr. Almost
Right, Commitment, Testosterone,
Cats, Gay Men, and Mr. Wrong.
Actors will receive payment for their
performances. The show is scheduled
to play four weekends at two different
theaters: the Back Door Theater in
Gulfport and the Venue Theatre in
Pinellas Park. For more information,

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
10. The exhibition will detail the
natural history of Florida through
Trappman's compelling paintings,
artifact replicas, fossils, and examples
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. Avariety of programs

a S a e h t s o


Mike Ketterer, So. Pasadena:
"I work with a lot of Mexicans in
the hospitality business; they're
hard workers and take care of their
families. But I think the Arizona law
is fair because immigrants are taking
jobs that people here could work.
Everybody always says they do the
jobs that no one else wants to, but I
know people like me that would work
those jobs, even for the lower wage.
I've done it, so I know. I'm not racist
and I have nothing against them
personally, but I think Arizona has
the right idea. Florida needs some
kind of law like that here, especially
in Pinellas County. They've got
our jobs and we need them back.
Two years ago, I would have had a
different answer for you, because I
felt differently. But after fighting to
get and keep a job and sometimes
watching it go to an immigrant,
it's hard to feel sorry for them now.
Americans need those jobs."

Michele and Y.Z. Lahav, So.
Pasadena: "Yes, the federal
government should sue Arizona to stop
the use of the law. The legal system
in the US is expressly implemented
so that the federal government's
action takes precedence over the
states; that's how it should be. The
law is enforced by human beings,
not pieces of legislation. The Arizona
law enforcement could easily become
Rambos if given that much power; I
think they would abuse it. There is
that one sheriff that takes pride on
being "tough" on immigrants. That
seems to be against every fiber of the
American character, or at least what
we would like it to be."
. .


Betsy Cook, Gulfport: "I don't
think the government should be
allowed to sue; it's in our business
already way too much. It's starting to
feel like a not so free country. At the
same time, Arizona law enforcement
shouldn't be allowed to just stop
random people on the street- its
wrong."


Frank Ridens, Gulfport: "Sure, I
think the government can sue, but
the mistake is that the government
allowed the states to make up their
own rules and then it criticizes
them because they disagree with
those rules. All states follow their
own set of rules. I think that
instead of the federal government
suing the Arizona, take away their
federal funding. That seems to be
a more effective way to handle that
situation. The Arizona policy as it
stands now is nothing more than
profiling, which is just not right. I
hope they can settle it as long as it
doesn't cost me anything!"
* *


Theresa Tinnerello, So. Pasadena:
"Arizona should not be allowed to just
stop anyone on the street and arrest
them if they don't have ID; that's
almost like entrapment. It's terrible!
I think the federal government should
sue; human rights are being violated.
I'm appalled that they would even
enforce a law like that."

SPCA Pet of the Week
This is Sparkey a very handsome and debonair 4 year
old DMH. He was found by a kindhearted cat lover who
took him in as he was hanging around their home. After
searching for his family and knowing that they didn't
have room in their home, Sparkey was brought to SPCA
Tampa Bay to find his new forever home. Sparkey enjoys
the luxury of living as an inside cat and always uses the
litter box. He likes the company of other cats, though we
are not sure of any experience with dogs. Described as
friendly, outgoing, loving, easygoing and playful, Sparkey is very affectionate
toward children. He likes to spend his day batting and swatting at balls across
the floor. Visit Sparkey today at SPCA Tampa Bay, 9099 130 Avenue N. in
Largo, or call 727-586-3591.


Foster or Adopt a Greyhound
Meet Sifter, a male brindle grey, with a typical greyhound
personality. This means that he's mostly calm, laid back
and listens well, but can be enticed into fun play sessions
for activity and exercise. He loves attention, and will
gently lean into you for as long as you will pet him. He
gets along well with the other dogs at our kennel. He
passed his cat and small dog test here at the kennel. If
you would like to foster or adopt Sifter or any of our many
other greyhounds, please contact Greyhound Pets of America at 727-595-7852,
our website: greyhoundpets.com or see us at the Tyrone PetSmart on most
Sunday from noon to 2 p.m.


Friends of Strays
Preston is a very friendly ten year old pure white
Domestic Short Hair. He is a tall, thin gentleman who
is very talkative. Preston is very healthy but requires a
couple inexpensive pills daily since he is a hyper-thyroid
cat. He is a fun cat to be around and gets along with
^ other kitties and small dogs. Preston is hanging out in
our front lobby but would love to be in a good forever
home. Please visit Preston at the Friends of Strays
Adoption Center at 2911 47 Avenue N. in St. Petersburg Tuesday Sunday 10
a.m. 3 p.m. or call 727-522-6566 for more information. Also visit us at www.

tSt 0oroscoDe Guide


CANCER (June 22-July 22). You
can see various shapes and forms in
the clouds -- angels, dogs, trees. But
really, they are just clouds, drifting,
changing and always moving on.
Your thoughts are like this. You can
interpret them one way or another,
but you don't have to. If you don't
identify with them, they still roll
along.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Trying to
create a life without stress is futile.
Some stress is necessary -- the right
kind of stress. You'll be empowered
by the knowledge that you have
hard work ahead of you, but it is not
impossible work. You are capable
and able. Also, you have a choice,
and you are free to choose differently
at any time.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). There
are sections of your world that are
usually separated -- not on purpose, it
just happens that way. For instance,
maybe your work colleagues don't
know your family friends. This
changes. Different parts of your
world collide. It will take a few key
introductions to get the melting pot
boiling.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Don't
worry about or compare yourself to
others. You are unique. And this
time is unlike any before. So really,
there is no way to compare. Instead,
own your actions. Take charge
of your attitude. Commit to your
path. Passion and conviction are
your success keys. You will have an
infectious effect on everyone around.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). The
theme is cooperative relationships.
Through your compassion, you have
gained the loyalty of those around
you. And now you reap the benefits of
what you have sowed. It will be easy
for you to move through your week,
as you will have all the respectful
assistance you need. Often, you won't
even have to ask.


SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec.
21). Some places have such a
vibrant energy that you can just tell
something good is going to happen
there. Opportunity always springs
from such a place. There are big
benefits to hanging out in the "right
place." The longer you stay the more
likely you are to be there at that magic
moment called the "right time."
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19).
Whatever ails you, when you are
inspired, you can overcome it. The
people who make you feel happy
will be nearby. Some of these people
you don't know yet. But you can tell
they are important to your well-
being because you immediately feel
uplifted, intrigued and perhaps
comforted by their presence.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18).
Physical exertion will be part of the
fun. You'll be encouraged to keep
going even when you're not sure you
want to. Listen to your body, and let
it speak more loudly than any other
person's voice. Friends and coaches
and even doctors cannot really
know how you feel. Trust your own
intuition about your body.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Stay
awake and aware wherever you
go. Otherwise, you can count on
spending some time looking for what
you lost. Whether it's your keys, your
dog or your heart, you will find it
pretty quickly. The trick is not to let
too much time pass between losing
track of what's yours and seeking it
with all of your attention.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). You've
read about magic and have heard
stories about miracles that regularly
happen. It all sounds improbable.
Keep up the diligent work this week.
Fortune favors motion. You will
make most of your luck yourself, but
not all of it. So stay open-minded, and
do ask for help from unseen forces as
you move ahead.


SE IOL6ERY


the Gabr. vr husa ic 98


TAURUS (April 2'_.in.y 20). This
week highlights your ambition.
With your high level of personal and
professional determination, you will
cause another person to go deeper,
learn more and perform better. Is
this person on your team? Maybe
so. But even if that is the case, this
person will eventually also be your
competitor.
GEMINI (Ol.iy 21-June 21). You'll
be pondering a risk. Your concerns
about what might happen if you take
this chance are valid; however, they
are unlikely to come true. That is,
unless you dwell on them endlessly.
In that case, you are sure to make a
few of them occur. So focus on what
you want instead of on what you
don't want.
This Week's Birthdays: This
month you will get the chance to try
something new, go somewhere you've
never been and talk to people you've
been curious about in the past. All the
novelty gives you a different frame of
reference. And when you return to
your home and routine, you will find
a new love for what you do. Everyone
around will be excited to help with
your projects in August. You'll earn
a bonus for your creative ideas in
September. Romance is the theme
in November, and you'll make sweet
memories.

Excerpts heard at the May 26, 2009

Gulfport City Council Meeting


Public Comment

& Council Quotes

"They may deserve it but they don't deserve more than every-
body else,"-Dottie Bellefluer, about the firefighter raises

"I think we all can probably more often than not say thank
you for what they do," Margarete Tober, in speaking about the
fallen officers in Tampa Bay

"Why are you muting our voices by refusing to show the very
faces of those who elected you?" Lee Stapella, about the city's
decision about how to televise meetings

"The message to Swiftmud was that they could do what they
want because Gulfport doesn't care," -Al Davis, about last
week's Clam Bayou meeting that included representatives from
SWFWMD and St. Petersburg

"I'd like to thank the Building Department- I don't know
how much support they get," Mr. Pia, about help his business
has received

"So much for the Consent Agenda. That cut a lot of time out
of things," Mayor Mike Yakes, after council removed a set of
minutes from the Consent Agenda at Councilwoman Salmon's re-
quest and discussed it for several minutes. Items cannot remain on
the consent agenda if a voting member has a question about them
and no discussion can take place on consent agenda items.

"80% of people with RVs will be out of compliance if we pass
this,"-Councilmember Jennifer Salmon, about the proposed
amendment to RV storage laws.

"I think it's important that we put our desires in writing
so they carry forward, even if we don't," Councilwoman
Michele King, who says she wants the city to put its wishes
to "go green" in writing. "In defense of staff, we're evolving
again," -City Manager Jim O'Reilly, about the RV ordinance

"Al Davis was right on," Mayor Mike Yakes, about the RV is-
sue and Mr. Davis' statement that many lots could not come into
compliance.

Old RV Laws Mix

With New and

Create Controversy
GULFPORT- After much debate over
setbacks and lot size, city council
voted 3-2 to pass an RV ordinance.
Ordinance 2010-08 amends the
Chapter 21 of the city code; this
chapter deals with maintaining
and keeping RVs on any private
property. Initially, city staff brought
forth an ordinance that would
allow any RV that fit on a property
owner's lot to comply with the law
and eliminated setbacks, but council
opted to alter the ordinance and
leave in the setbacks as written.
Current setbacks dictate that RVs
not extend past the front building
on the property, stay at least six feet
away from side yard line (15 feet if
the lot is a corner lot adjacent to a
street or alley), and be at least five
feet away from any structure on the
property.
During the public discussion,
Al Davis suggested that the city
was "bringing light where there
was no darkness." Mr. Davis, who,
like many of his neighbors, has an
asymmetrical lot, told council he
could not get his RV behind his
home. His wife, Cindy Davis, also
spoke.
"I know it hasn't been rolled into
this, but it has been discussed, is
the boat issue. In our cul-de-sac, five
boats... because of Clam Bayou and
the sediment- have had to ...be sold,"
Mrs. Davis told council.
Former mayor Yvonne Johnson
spoke against the ordinance.
"I'm an RV homeowner and I know
what you're going through. So many
of the lots in this city... are so small...
I would hate to see you pass this as it
is. I just feel like you're asking for a
lot of problems. I see no provision for
a variance to be granted to anyone,
Ms. Johnson pointed out.
Anyone who cannot come into
compliance with the ordinance will
have 90 days to apply for a variance
or arrange for storage at the city
marina. Residents at the meeting
expressed dismay at paying $70
a month to park their RVs in the
marina lot.
Initial discussion surrounding
this ordinance came about when
Gabber July 8 July 14, 2010


Margarete Tober complained about
her neighbor, John Miller, city staff
said. At Tuesday evening's meeting,
Ms. Tober said she and Mr. Miller
disagreed over this issue. In an
attempt to find a solution, city staff
took a count of all the RVs in Gulfport
and found that of 38, most were
not in compliance with the current
law. By making the ordinance less
restrictive and allowing Class B
recreational vehicles (such as ones
used for daily transportation, and it
will include the Davis family's RV),
the city hopes to bring more RVs
into compliance.
Many of the sections of the
ordinance that residents and council
members objected to, such as the
aforementioned setbacks, were not
new additions but existing laws.
Councilwoman Jennifer Salmon
pointed out that the city did not
enforce many issues.
"I think any ordinance we have, we
should get rid of it or enforce it," she
said. Councilwoman Michele King
said she didn't think the ordinance
would be enforceable, although she
made the motion to approve the
changes.
"I think this ordinance, as it stands,
is unenforceable anyway. Unless
you're gong to permit every RV in
the city, you don't know where they
are. It's never going to be enforced
unless it's a complaint. This is not a
new ordinance, it's basically an old
ordinance with new things that are
in it that are more lenient than they

were before. These setbacks have
been in place for ten years. There are
a lot more people who don't have RVs
in this city," she said, then added
that in addition to pleasing the RV
owners, council should consider the
people who lived near them.
"The guy who lives on the other
side of the fence is just as important
as the guy with the RV," she said.
Mayor Mike Yakes said that
existing RV owners could apply for
a variance if they couldn't come into
compliance.
"A variance may be awkward, but
it's done," he said.
Council voted 3-2 to pass the
ordinance, with Yakes and
Councilman Sam Henderson casting
the dissenting votes. Mayor Yakes
called the ordinance "unfair."
"We have been a city of compromise.
She (Ms. Tober) is trying to have
the city fight a neighborhood
dispute," the mayor said Wednesday
morning.
"I don't wish to create an ordinance
because we can't solve our personal
problems," he added. We have been
a city of compromise and to create an
ordinance to settle her dispute with
her neighbors I think is unfair."
Mr. Miller, whose RV spurred this
debate, approached the dais before
the vote.
"I am a motor home owner and I
am probably the one that this is all
about," he said "I'm going to respect
his decision and I thank you all for
working with us."

Mary Atkinson,

in the Pacific. He returned, got
his GED, and met Mary. He still
remembers the first time he saw her
after high school.
11 I.mniuil had a big place in John's
Pass and she was living in Sunset
Beach. Some of the girls in her
graduating class got together and
rented a cottage. Of course, none of
the beaches were like they were today.
She was riding down on the back of
an oil truck that was spreading oil on
the side of the road to keep the sand
down, and I thought, 'I want to meet
her.' And it went from there; we got
married in 1948," Lum recalls.
The newlyweds lived on the beach
for a while, then moved to Pinellas
Park. Lum got called back onto the
service during the Korean war, and
when he came back home, they
moved to Gulfport.
"We got us a house on 14th Ave and
been here ever since. I couldn't get
her to leave," he says. When Florida
Power offered Lum a job in Dunellon-
three separate times- Mary told him,
"Go ahead and commute."
Mary quit working shortly after
having her first of three daughters
and stayed home with them, although
"staying home" didn't quite apply to
Mary.
Little League, Scouts, History,
Theatre... and Family
Judy Ryerson met Mary 40 years
ago, when her sons played in Little
League. Her husband coached it, "he
coached it, he did everything. He was
just involved in everything and so
was Mary. She loved Little League;
she absolutely loved it," she says.
The two women bonded over Little
League, and after Little League came
Cub Scouts and Girl Scouts (Judy had
boys; Mary had girls.) Both women
worked together at the historical
society and community theatre (Mary
co-founded the historical society and
her sister started the theatre group).
Between the volunteering, Mary
tutored Judy's son.


1NI youngest son had a great
deal of trouble in elementary school
(academically), and he was quiet and
well-behaved so they ignored him.
When he was going into second from
third grade, she took him on. She
taught him toreadwrite do arithmetic,
fish, and shoot off fireworks," Judy
laughs. When his son had the same
problem, Mary stepped up to the
plate and tutored him as well.
"She was a natural teacher," Judy
says. "When she didn't go to college
we lost a good elementary school
Christmas Mountains
Christmas only came once a year,
but Mary kept the Christmas spirit
all the time.
"If you'd go into her living room she
had a very small tree, but she bought
Christmas presents for everyone all
year long," Judy remembers. "Lum
actually set up an assembly line to
wrap them all. It would take four or
five days; she would have Christmas
presents for everybody, and I mean
everybody."
Mary's Touch
Mary died last week, just a few
months shy of Gulfport's centennial.
She got to see the musical honoring
the city but will not see the celebration
this October. She is physically gone
but, as Mayor Mike Yakes said, still
very much with the city.
"It's humbling to really see all
that she's done. People have said,
'Gulfport will never be the same' but
I say that Gulfport, because of Mary,
is for the better for all that she has
contributed. Those things will never
go away. All you need to do is walk
around the city and you'll see her
many accomplishments, and those
many accomplishments are by the
genuine love of community. She was
involved in Scouts, she was involved
in theatre- Catherine Hickman was
her sister. You look at the museum,
you see Mary there. I'm going to miss
her, but I feel we're blessed for her
contributions to the city."
The family asks that anyone wishing
to honor Mary make donations to
either Scout Hall, Gulfport Little
League, or the Historical Society.

Year-Round Water Conservation Measures
Effective Date and Areas
The District's year-round water conservation measures go back into effect
July 1, 2010 except where stricter measures have been imposed by local
governments. Always refer to your HYPERLINK "http://www.swfwmd.
state.fl.us/conservation/restrictions/index.html" local government or utility
restrictions.

Highlands, Hillsborough, Manatee, Pinellas, Polk, and Sumter counties; and
portions of Lake and Levy counties.
Unincorporated Pasco County and unincorporated Sarasota County have local
ordinances and are expected to remain on one-day-per-week restrictions.
The City of Ocala and unincorporated Marion County will continue to follow
the St. Johns River Water Management District's water restrictions; however,
the City of Dunnellon and The Villages remain under the Southwest Florida
Water Management District's water restrictions.
Lawn Watering Schedule and Times
Lawn watering is limited to twice per week.
Unless your city or county has a different schedule or stricter hours in
effect,
even addresses may water on Thursday and/or Sunday before 10 a.m. or after
4 p.m. Odd addresses may water on Wednesday and/or Saturday before 10
a.m. or after 4 p.m.
Landscape Watering Schedule and Times
Hand watering and micro-irrigation of plants (other than lawns) can be done
on any day and at any time.
New Lawns and Plants
New lawns and plants have a 30-30 establishment period, which allows any-

During the second 30 days, watering is allowed three days per week: even-
numbered addresses may water on Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday; odd-
numbered addresses may water Monday, Wednesday and Saturday.
Reclaimed Water
Reclaimed water remains subject to voluntary watering hours, unless blended
with another water source or restricted by the local government or utility.
Fountain Operation. Car Washing and Pressure Washing
There are no restrictions on fountains, car washing and pressure washing.
However, the Districts asks that residents be as efficient as possible, such as
using a shut-off nozzle on their hose, so water isn't wasted.

Pinellas Fertilizer
Ordinance In Effect
Pinellas County's ban on residential
use of lawn and landscape fertilizers
containing nitrogen or phosphorous
took effect June 1. The summertime
ban will last until October 1. A
corresponding summer ban on retail
sales of the prohibited fertilizers
begins in June 2011.
The Pinellas ordinance is based on
one developed by the Tampa Bay
Estuary Program to reduce nitrogen
pollution carried in stormwater
runoff to the bay. Nitrogen is the
major pollutant in Tampa Bay,
and residential runoff (including
fertilizer) comprises about 20% of
the stormwater load. Hillsborough
County also is weighing restrictions
on use of residential fertilizers and
will vote on several options on July
15.
Pinellas County has produced
brochures, displays, doorhangers
and Public Service Announcements
to inform homeowners of the
summer fertilizer ban, and TBEP is
assisting in funding and distributing
educational materials. Additionally,
TBEP has hired Salter-Mitchell, a
marketing firm whose credentials
include the popular "Chesapeake
Club" fertilizer education campaign
in the Chesapeake Bay, to develop
a 2-year fertilizer education plan for
Tampa Bay.
To learn more about proper fertilizer
use, and alternatives to nitrogen-
based fertilizers, visit tbep.org or

In God We Trust
I heard an interesting and well
presented sermon Sunday, July 4,
by a pastor decrying the country's
seeming abandonment of God in its
everyday life. Could this explain
our country's economic, moral, and
political turmoil, he wondered?
Specifically, he cited the loss of
prayer in the school, denying manger
scenes on public sites, elimination
of "In God We Trust" on new coins,
and the continuous battle to wipe
out religious symbols (Christian) in
public places, as the source of many
of our troubles. Afterwards, I didn't
have a chance to discuss the topic,
but would have disagreed with him
to an extent.
First, let me concede that ours is a
country founded on Judeo-Christian
values by founders who recognized a
divinity with power beyond countries
and individuals. Check out the
Declaration of Independence. For


more details read former Speaker
of the House, Newt Gingrich's book,
"God In America".
It's a quick read and a must read for
anyone interested in the subject. The
gist is that America abounds with
religious symbols and has from the
beginning and none of them intrude
on individual religious liberties.
Mostly, I agree with Gingrich. Wiping
out all references to God, or symbols
of God, or symbols of religion in every
nook and cranny of local, state, or
federal government, is to wipe out
symbols of America itself.
Organized religion, many contend,
has been a source of trouble in the
world, and in this country. However,
organized religion in America has
been a huge contributor to public
good in its founding of institutions
to take care of the poor, the needy,
the handicapped, the broken to
establishing some of our nation's
finest schools and finest hospitals.


Some thin op my mind
a By Bill Northrop B_Northrop@theGabber.com


Gabber July 8-July 14, 2010


Indeed, we need to study religion, we
need to be familiar with its teachings,
particularly in relation to the history
of this country. In short we should
be schooled in the Judeo-Christian
philosophy.
On the other hand, having
government call the religious tune,
as in school prayer, should be
unnecessary in a God fearing society.
The Constitution in the Bill of Rights
(First Amendment) grants every
individual the right to practice his (or
her) religion. It is not a government
granted gift. It is an individual choice
upon which the government should
not intrude.
I argue that it is the responsibility of
everybelievingindividual tointroduce
his beliefs into society. It may only be
by practicing beliefs privately, and
leading a life by example, or it may
be by street preaching. That's a right
you have.
For individuals to pray in school (not
the institution saying prayers for all
those in school), that's fine. You might
ask yourself, do we pray at home,
in the morning, at meal times, at
bedtime, at times of trouble, or times
of joy? Many Muslims openly pray
five times a day and carry a prayer
rug with them. Do we, individually,
display in society the values our
many religions (Christians have
many denominations by themselves)
express?
That's the individual responsibility
in a God society. It really isn't the
government's job. James Madison
once said that "government should
not take cognizance of religion". I'm
not certain that's possible or wise.
However, if we attribute a decline in
society and governance and politics
and our daily life, to a decline in
attention to God, then it is the
responsibility of the individual or
individuals collectively and not the
job of government. They'd only mess
it up, after all.
In the meantime, hear what Larry
the Cable Guy (Gitt'er done) had to
say (this is a paraphrase). About
the Ten Commandments in public
buildings: having such things as
"Thou Shalt Not Give False Witness",
"Thou Shalt Not Commit Adultery",
"Thou Shalt Not Steal". Man, with
all those lawyers, politicians and
lobbyists, that would be a hostile
environment.

Gulfport Centennial Countdown Continues!


clfao(t&s Cenlten'iai
100 Week Countdown to 100 Years!


iAt


This cute little place had a very big use. What was it, where was it,
and what happened to it? 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 14 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.
*0o
LAST WEEK'S ANSWER:
Last week: Just prior to the grand
opening of the Rolyat Hotel in January
1926, the Pasadena Riding Academy
with its 30 horses was added to the list
of amenities, which now included golf,
fishing, motor trips over the "smooth
surrounding roads, a canter along the
flower-bordered bridal paths, or merely
a period of perfect relaxation, of delicious
idling in the sunshine and breathing the
fragrant ozone of a thousand pines.

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
schools.
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
Gabber July 8 July 14, 2010


on their itemized tax returns for
each month they host a sponsored
student.
Families interested in learning
more about student exchange or
arranging for a meeting with a
community representative may call
P.I.E., toll-free, at 1-866-546-1402.
The agency also has travel/study
program opportunities available for
American high school students as
well as possibilities for community
volunteers to assist and work with
area host families, students and
schools.


Be a Foster Mom or
Dad for Save Our Strays
Save Our Strays is a no-kill non-profit
organization dedicated to re-homing
abandoned cats and kittens. It does
not maintain a shelter facility and is
in serious need of additional foster
homes for its felines. They are not
able to accept new felines when they
have no available foster homes for
them. They also need volunteers to
transport felines to/from veterinarian
appointmentsetc. Ifyou are interested
in helping, please call 727-481-5262.
The rewards are great.

You & THE




By Robert J. Myers, Esquire

What are the
Responsibilities of a
Successor Trustee?
The use of a revocable living trust
allows the beneficiaries of a trust
to receive the assets of a deceased
trust settlor without requiring
formal Probate Court approval. A
named successor trustee in a trust
document has certain responsibilities
which should be performed in the
administration of the trust. Some
of the ordinary and necessary steps
which a successor trustee should
take in lawful and proper trust
administration are:
A. The trust document should be
reviewed for legal sufficiency and
interpretation as well as each trust
amendment;
B. The implementation of the
substitution of the successor trustee
should be accomplished;
C. Interested persons concerning the
administration of the trust should be


served with the required notices in a
proper and timely fashion;
D. A successor trustee has a legal
duty to protect, insure and manage
trust assets and may have liability
for the improper accomplishment of
these legal duties;
F. A successor trustee has an
affirmative duty to invest trust
assets in accordance with the prudent
investor rule;
G. A successor trustee is responsible
to make any contributions due to
the personal representative of the
deceased settlor's estate in order to
payfor creditor claims, administrative
expenses and/or estate taxes;
H. A successor trustee has an
obligation to inform and account to
beneficiaries of the trust in a manner
that is lawfully documented;
I. A successor trustee has a
responsibility to make payment or
compromise any claims made by
creditors against trust assets;
J. A successor trustee is required
to identify and file all tax returns in
a timely and proper manner and is
liable to ensure that all due taxes are
paid;
K. A successor trustee is required
to obtain a nontaxable certificate if
the personal representative of the
deceased settlor's estate has not
obtained the nontaxable certificate
from the State of Florida;

L. A successor trustee is required to
distribute income and/or principal to
beneficiaries of the deceased settlor's
trust and is required to fund any
further trusts provided for in the
trust document; and
M. A successor trustee is obligated
to perform all trust administration
responsibilities as a fiduciary and
should avoid self-dealing, prejudice
or conflicts of interest. A successor
trustee has a duty of impartiality in
the performance of obligations to the
trust beneficiaries.
The above is only a partial list of the
duties of a successor trustee after a
settlor of a trust passes on. Most of
the successor trustee's duties should
be accomplished with the guidance
and assistance of competent legal
counsel.

Have you got a
question for your
C i 1 V9 city government?
Email your request to News@theGabber.com
By Cathy Salustri
City of Gulfport
Q: I live off 58th Street by 11th Avenue South, and a few Saturday
nights ago I got home late (around 3 a.m.) and the Sheriffs Office had cars
at almost every street. There was also a helicopter circling overhead. I've
looked in the paper but haven't seen anything about that night. What was
going on? Melanie King
A: Well, even though it was the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office at work,
Gulfport Sergeant Rob Burkhart lives in your neighborhood, too, Melanie.
He says the helicopter woke him up that night. He also gave the Gabber
the official story about what happened.
At 2:36 Saturday morning, June 19, Gulfport police officers helped
the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office chase a stolen vehicle south on
58th Street. Two suspects fled south on 58th Street into Gulfport, then
turned on 11th Avenue South.
From there, Sergeant Burkhart says, the suspects got out of the car
and ran away. They disappeared around 11th Avenue and Gray Street
South. With help from Gulfport police, the helicopter you saw, and police
dogs, deputies set a perimeter.
Unfortunately for everyone except the alleged criminals, the suspects
escaped capture.
Anyone who wants more information can ask the Gulfport Police
Department for log number 10-16017.

Gulfport Beach June Water Quality Report


By Cathy Salustri
Each week the City of Gulfport tests the water quality
in the waters off Gulfport Beach. Gulfport has contracted
with the City of St. Petersburg for the tests.
Every month The Gabber publishes the results of those
tests. If, at any time, the tests show that the water quality
poses a health risk, the City of Gulfport will issue a Health
Advisory. Gulfport typically receives test results within a
week of taking the sample.
Currently, the City tests for two things: enterococcus
and fecal coliform. Scientists consider enterococcus a
common bacteria found in animal and human intestines,
and, resultingly, in human and animal excrement.
Federal standards used to require agencies to measure
water quality by the amount of fecal coliform along public
beach waters but recently have replaced fecal coliform
with enterococcus as the standard. Fecal coliform also
comes from the waste of warm-blooded animals, including
humans.
The City of Gulfport currently tests for both types of
bacteria. Test results will help classify Gulfport Harbor as
"good", "moderate", or "poor". Enterococcus of less than 35
parts per 100 milliliter and fecal coliform of less than 199
per 100 milliliter of saltwater indicate good water quality.
For more information, contact the City of Gulfport at 893-
1000.

Of Dogs and Diapers
T he city is entertaining
establishing a dog beach, and,
for a city that certainly has it's
share of four-footed residents, the
anti-dog-beach outcry on the paper's
Facebook page shocked me. Of course,
"outcry" might be too strong a word,
as only two people have commented
at all, but what amazes me is that no
pro-doggie beach people have jumped
in to defend the honor of dogs and
dog owners everywhere. I know, too,
that opinions on Facebook certainly
don't represent the real world (for
those of you somewhat addicted to
social networking sites, the "real"
world is what's outside your window.
No, your other window.)
Those who oppose a dog beach say
that the dog poop will contaminate
Boca Ciega Bay. Since I work Calypso
into this column more regularly than
BP comes up with useless solutions
to the Gulf oil disaster, I think we all
know what side of the fence I'm about
to come down. Yup, you guessed it:
Gulfport should create a full-time
dog beach.
Those of us who live with dogs can
tell you how very much it means to
them to be able to run down a beach
and splash in the water. These aren't
creatures with long life spans by
human standards, and that hour of
joy they'll get from digging in the
sand or splashing in the surf means
more to them than non-dog lovers
could possibly imagine. It's not as
though they have other outlets like
bowling or going out for tapas with
friends. Let's not forget the benefits
of dogs who interact regularly with
other dogs: they how to behave
around other dogs, making them
less aggressive members of society.
Couple that with a dog's need for
exercise and running up and down
the beach with fellow pups makes
more sense than ever. And don't say
they can get that in a dog park; it
isn't the same.
I had the pleasure of spending
12 years of my life with a cranky,
neurotic, overprotective, wonderful


Dalmatian named Madison. She
went through a nasty divorce with
me and never really recovered: she
was mighty protective, got nervous
in dog parks and didn't much care for
other dogs, but get her to a stretch
of beach and she was a puppy again.
She was a great friend to me and the
best reward I could give her was some
time at the beach. When we got in the
car and headed to Fort DeSoto, she
knew. Once we got over the bridge on
the Bayway, she'd start to whine in
anticipation. She'd run up and down
the beach, blowing bubbles when she
stuck her snout in the sand and then
chasing those same bubbles, which
created more bubbles... it could go
on for hours. I had to put sunscreen
on her snout and behind her ears,
because she'd get sunburned.
My best memories of Madison
were at Fort DeSoto, and my best
memories of Calypso are on the water
as well. I understand and accept that
unscooped dog leavings contribute
to fecal coliform contamination in
waterways. But anyone who thinks
that a dog beach will create more
unchecked dog poop either doesn't
have a dog themselves or doesn't visit
dog beaches much. Dog owners at
Fort DeSoto are much more effective
at policing the poop than any law
enforcement officer could ever hope
to be. I've seen things get ugly at dog
beaches when someone didn't pick up
after their pet, and the humiliation
I've seen fellow dog owners put others
through for not scooping encourages
me to always- ALWAYS- have extra
bags on hand when I'm at the Fort
DeSoto Paws Playground. I am so
downright thrilled to have a dog
beach that I refuse to do anything to
risk having it taken away.
When I hear talk about creating a
dog beach, I think about Madison.
She loved the beach. On the last day
of her life, she couldn't walk anymore,
but I lifted her into the back of my
Rabbit and drover her down to Fort
DeSoto. I inflated a raft and sat in
the water with her for quite a while,
letting her float. Her nose quivered
at the scent of the salt air, but that


was all. After about an hour, I dried
her off, put her back in the car, and
together we drove to the veterinarian
one last time.
I still have the collar she wore that
day, and if I try real hard, I can still
smell the beach on it. I wouldn't trade
that last hour or two for anything
except to have her back with me.
So, to those naysayers, I ask you for
this: please let us have a small stretch
of beach for moments like that. They
mean so much to us and everything to
our dogs. I understand your concerns
and am not discounting them, but I
will tell you that I, as a dog owner,
wouldn't risk not being able to give
my dog those moments of pure joy by
leaving waste on the beach.
Let's compromise: let's see how it
goes for three months, then decide.
On behalf of Madison, Calypso, and
every dog that's ever yelped with
puppy-like abandon when the sand
comes into view, please let us have
this.

and show me here you are my Mother. 0 Holy
Mary, Mother of God, Queen of Heaven and
Earth, I humbly beseech you from the bottom
of my heart to succor me in necessity (Men-
tion your request here). There are none that
can withstand your power. Oh Mary, conceived
without sin, pray for us who have recourse to
thee. (3 times.) Holy Mary, I place this prayer
in your hands. (3 times.) Amen. Say this
prayer for 3 consecutive days and then you
must publish it and it will be granted to vou
D.
PRAYER TO ST. JUDE This novena has
never been known to fail. This novena must be
said for 9 consecutive days. Publication must
be promised. Oh Holy St. Jude, Apostle and
Martyr, great in virtue and rich in miracles,
near kinsman of Jesus Christ, faithful inter-
cessor of all who invoke your special patron-
age in time of need, to you I have recourse
from the depth of my heart and humbly beg
to whom God has given great power to come
to my assistance. Help me in my present
urgent petition. In return, I promise to make
your name known and call you to be invoked.
St. Jude, pray for us all who invoke your aid.
Amen. Say 3 Our Fathers, 3 Hail Marys & 3
Gloria's. R.S.
