Raising Money For CASA
r By Leigh Clifton
N, i Mother and daughter
r Laurie Dean-Crook
(rt) and Emily Crook
look for clothes at
the Clothes Swap in
Gulfport on Tuesday.
a They are in town for a
-j month from California
visiting Laurie's mother
SilCarol Koehler, who lives
in Gulfport. The event
I was also a fundraiser
for CASA, Community
Action Stops Abuse.
People who came to the
swap without clothing
to contribute were
asked for a donation
to CASA. That money
raised will go directly
to CASA, which helps
shelter battered women,
thi educates them on their
alternatives and also
has a large thrift store

Later Alcohol Sales
ST. PETE BEACH- An ordinance extending the hours alcohol
can be sold and served in the city passed on first reading. Soon
alcohol could be sold or served until 3 a.m.
City Attorney Mike Davis said if Pinellas County extends
service until 3 a.m., the city would not have to have the longer
hours. See Alcohol, page 7

Gulfportian, Kirby Rohrer Dies After
Battle With Cancer
Gulfport lost a second community
treasure in as many weeks: Kirby
Rohrer died this week, and everyone
who knew him mourned the man.
"I considered Kirby my friend for
the past 30 years," Gulfport's city
manager Jim O'Reilly said. As a
teenager, he met Kirby, but later
served on Gulfport City Council with
him. "He was just one of them guys:
somebody who seems to get along with everybody. It sounds
goofy, but you know, he was one of those people who wore
their heart on their sleeve. He was just a nice guy."
See Kirby, page 6

Gulfport Police
Seek Public Input
When he was
appointed to
the office in
Chief Robert
Vincent made
it clear he was
going to have
Police Chief his officers
Robert Vincent police the
the way the people wanted
it to be policed. One of his
objectives was to actively solicit
the opinions of those who use
or benefit from police services,
including residents, business
owners, workers, and visitors
in Gulfport.
Since then, the chief and his
staff have been developing a
community survey for just that
purpose. After consulting the
University of South Florida
Criminology Department, they
have come up with a survey
designed to collect information
See Police, page 8

Oil Spill Update
Sally Bishop ofPinellas County
Emergency Management said
chances are there will be little
if any impacts on the area from
oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.
Currently there is a one to 20
percent chance of the spill im-
pacting this area, with the area
just to the south of here having
a less than one percent chance
of impact, she said.
The oil is still 300 miles away.
With the Tampa Bay area so
far geographically removed
from the initial spill- the prod-
uct from the spill in this area
would be more weathered, like
tar balls, than what has been
seen further north, Bishop

Kirby, from front page
"He did a lot of good things in
Gulfport, there's no doubt about it."
Everyone who spoke about Kirby
gave evidence of a life brimming with
good deeds. Although he worked as a
building contractor all over the state,
he devoted the lion's share of his
free time to Gulfport organizations.
He saw every organization he got
involved in, from Little League to
the Lions Club, as an opportunity to
touch lives and give something back
to the community.
Kirby coached Little League teams,
going beyond advice about hitting
to making sure the teams had what
they needed.
"The first time I met Kirby was
when I was 17 years old and we were
playing ball and our team didn't have
a sponsor. Kirby sponsored the team
and bought us our uniforms and we
ended up playing," Mike Bonfield,
the city manager of St. Pete Beach
who grew up in Gulfport and still
lives there today, remembered.
Kirby also operated Cliff and Kirby's
Snack Bar (in the space presently

occupied by O Ml.il.dy's) and then,
in conjunction with a friend, ran KC
Train. He presided over the Lion's
Club for two terms and managed
the city's marina for a bit. For 13
Christmases, he also mysteriously
disappeared whenever Santa Claus
came to visit R.W. Caldwell Realty.
From 1987 1989, Kirby served on
Gulfport council for Ward Two.
Although not born here- a
Pennsylvania native who bought a
home in Gulfport in 1977- he filled
his 33 years in Gulfport with a
lifetime of giving. With no biological
children, he leaves behind a mass of
unofficial children, grandchildren
and godchildren whose lives he
touched with his unique ability to
keep giving.
"He was continually giving to the
community and those around him,"
Mr. O'Reilly recalls. "He knew
everyone from all parts of life, from
the kids at Little League to the older
ladies that he always had time for."
A gathering will take place
to celebrate Kirby's life and
magnanimous spirit this Saturday
at the Gulfport Lion's Club. The

Meet the New Pastor
at Gulfport Methodist
On July 4th, the First United
Methodist Church of Gulfport
welcomed their new pastor, Dr.
Gerald Partney, Jr. For the past
15 years, "Pastor Jerry" has been
serving as the Pastor of the Albright
United Methodist Church on 5th
Ave. N. in St. Petersburg. He has
been transferred to Gulfport and
it is hoped many members of his
former congregation at Albright will
be coming with him.
Prior to his call to the ministry,
"Pastor Jerry" served on the Faculty
of the University of South Florida
and also spent many years in the
real estate and health insurance
industry. He has been married to
his wife Pat, a native Floridian from
Miami, for 32 years and they have
five grown children.

to have many members of his

participants and leaders in the
activities of his new church for many

to the entire Gulfport community to
come visit and, perhaps, find a new
home to worship with their new
pastor and congregation.

Q: How was the building of the city pool funded?
A: The construction of the city's new pool facility was paid for primarily
by donations and a grant. About $500,000 came from a private donation,
the party is providing the money about $100,000 at a time over five years.
A state grant covered around $250,000. Those funding sources covered an
estimated 90 percent of the pool construction costs, City Manager Mike
Bonfield said.

There are Heroes
Among Us in Gulfport!
Dear Editor: On Saturday, July
3 after a two-day search, I discov-
ered by cat Pablo on top of a very
tall "fan" palm tree. I called the non-
emergency police number for help,
hopefully from the fire department.
I was told "No help for cats except
in an emergency." I said, "By tomor-
row, it will be an emergency as he's
been up there for two days with no
food or water already." Three great
firefighters, whose names I'm sorry
to say I didn't get as I was so dis-
traught, came to help but the tree
was too high for their ladders. One of
the men suggested I call his cousin

who has a bucket truck for his tree
business, Tim Coppola. I called and
left a message about Pablo's plight.
He called back quickly and said "I
just got home from working all day
and I was in the shower before taking
my kids fishing as promised, but I'll
come by and see if my bucket is high
enough." He did, then went back to
Tangerine Ave. and drove the bucket
truck back. After some coaxing, Pab-
lo was safe and sound in his arms,
although quite traumatized after
his two-day ordeal. He soon ate and
drank and slept soundly, happy to be
home. Thanks a million to Tim Cop-
pola and the Gulfport Police and Fire
departments. I'm forever grateful to
all involved in the rescue of Pablo.

Thinking about buying a new vehicle? Think again. According to the experts at Kelly
Blue Book, in three years that new car could depreciate by as much as 73 percent
of its value. At best it will retain a mere 62 percent of its value after three years.
One of the biggest costs of owning a car is depreciation, and the best way to minimize
VifK^ the effect of this is simple: KEEP YOUR CAR LONGER. If it's a good car, and you look
after it, the rate slows down; by 10 years it will still hold around 20 percent of its value.
Don't worry about the odometer racking up large numbers. Once it clicks over
100,000 miles, the distance traveled has less effect on the value. We see lots
of cars that are still reliable - - - - - - - - - -

Jody Orgill, Gulfport: "Absolutely!
It's so much fun to take the dogs
down to the water. I have two dogs
and I work with dogs as well. I know
I would be responsible and pick up
the dog droppings. I actually hand
out flyers that describe the effects of
animal waste on the water and the
environment. Here we worry about
direct runoff into the storm drains
that empty into the Bay. I try to
educate people about what happens
if they don't pick up their pet's waste.
On the dog beach, we could provide
plastic bag stations and trash cans.
So many people in Gulfport have
dogs and most are very responsible.
It seems that the people who are
complaining about the waste don't
have pets. I think the place for a
dog beach would be to the left of
the Casino. That might be a perfect

Marsha Warner, Gulfport: "At
first I thought there should be one
allowed, but after talking to a few
people I changed my mind. I don't
think our beach is long enough to
support a dog beach and I'm very
concerned that some people won't
clean up after their dogs. I have two
dogs myself and I use the dog park
all the time, but I don't think they
need to go to a beach here. There's
already a dog beach at Fort DeSoto
and that has a nice, long beach."

Kathy Capen and Sebastian,
Gulfport: "I would absolutely say yes
to a dog beach here. I think people
should be allowed to take their dogs
to the water and play. Salt water has
a great healing quality for wounds, for
both humans and animals. I think we
could have a volunteer committee or
group that could police the beach in
the evening and make sure the beach
is left clean, or maybe a donation
box that would buy supplies for the
cleanup. I think if we all worked
together, we could keep a dog beach
clean and fun for everyone."

Gabber July 5 July 21, 2010

Lalania Hill, Gulfport: "I'm totally in favor of it; I can't tell you how exciting
it would be. I have three dogs and two children and taking the dogs to the dog
park with the girls is difficult. I'm not sure how child-friendly the other dogs are
and I certainly can't leave the dogs alone in the park or leave the girls outside
the fence. We love the little community feel of Gulfport. The people of Gulfport
love their town and I think they would take great care of a dog beach. After all, it
would be OUR beach. Fort DeSoto is ok; it's got a very large beach, but it's kind
of hard to get to. If we had our own little dog beach here, we could just let the
dogs off the beach to enjoy themselves and we could enjoy the beach! I think the
people here with dogs have a high level of responsibility. They welcome dogs in
several restaurants here. You hardly ever see an unruly dog here. We also have
one of the biggest pet fairs here with Get Rescued. That draws people from all
over. I think people here would take the protection and clean-up of the beach
very seriously. I think the perfect place to put a dog beach would be to the left
of the Casino; there are benches you could sit on and watch your dog play in the
water. Nobody ever swims there anyway, because a lot of stuff washes up there,
like sea grass. The dogs would love it!"

ItStoroscoDe Guide

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You
have remarkable powers of empathy.
Your natural sensitivity to what
others are going through will allow
you to effectively respond to the
needs of others. You may even have
the healing touch. The trick is to give
of yourself without compromising
your personal boundaries. Make sure
your needs are met, too.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You would
love to spend your week making
headway on a project or playing
with a new toy. Alas, your other
responsibilities will prevent you from
doing exactly what you want. This is
how it is. It makes no sense to resent
the schedule. Instead, give yourself
over to it entirely. Resolve to have a
blast fulfilling your duty.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You
have dear friends whom you've
known a long time. They have seen
you grow, and they have changed,
too. Your paths sometimes diverge.
This doesn't have to make such a
big difference in your relationships,
though. You don't have to be alike
in all things to be able to appreciate
and enjoy one another.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Those
around you will be reminded
that from time to time you can be
intense. It's an attractive part of
your character, but only because it
happens so rarely. Brief instances
of passion make life sparkle with
excitement. But know when to turn
it off. For the most part, a life devoid
of extremes will suit you well.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Your
experience will be enhanced through
the efforts of working together.
You'll come across some who need
your gentle guidance to understand
how to share. Your example of give
and take may be all it takes to teach
these people how best to cooperate
and get along. Stay compassionate
and be patient.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21).
From the earthworm underground
to the highest-flying bird, every
creature on earth has a purpose.
You, too. This is true whether or
not you feel particularly on course.
There will be times when you don't
-- ditto for the earthworm and the
bird, and yet they do their thing and
contribute to the earth's harmony.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19).
Because certain things haven't
worked out in the past, you now feel
a greater need for control. It's helpful
to some extent. Some things do need
to be managed, and you're the perfect
person to do it. But this method will
get tiring, so change your belief that
others are incompetent. Expect them
to be competent instead.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18).
Misery might love company, but
joy draws a crowd. That's where
you are this week as you repeatedly
count your blessings. Your knack
for winning people over relies on a
long-refined technique of irresistible
magnetism. The magnet is powered
by a basic sense of joy. You love
people, and people love you back.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You'll
heal a relationship this week using
one of your superpowers -- emotional
flexibility. Like a tree bending over
in a windstorm without breaking,
you have gone to great lengths and
compromises to make things work.
Yielding is not your favorite thing to
do, but for a little while, it will prove
to be the most effective.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). One
branch does not control the whole
tree. Without the branch, the tree
and the roots will go on doing what
they do. If you find yourself obsessing
over one thing that is not going as you
want it to, bring your attention back
to what is really essential. There is
much to enjoy about your life and its


the Gabr. vr husa ic 98

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You'll
be offering something to the world.
Your offer may be projected in the
form of an e-mail, an advertisement
or an energy that's jumping off of you.
Before you send out the attention-
getting message, ask yourself: Do I
have the resources to respond to the
opportunities or challenges I'm likely
to get back?
GEMINI (Il.Iy 21-June 21).
Children, students and others you
are responsible for may come across
as being exceptionally needy this
week. Some requests require your
help. Also, look for appropriate
times to encourage self-reliance. By
backing off, you provide an opening
for them to find courage and listen to
their own hearts.
This Week's Birthdays: You
will be astounded at how much you
can accomplish this year. Friends
will ask your secret, and it's really
quite simple: You have to get a lot
done in order to survive in the game
you're playing. And you derive great
satisfaction along the way. Wisdom
from an elder will inform your career
decisions in September. Finances
take a turn for the better in October.
Your love life thrives because you
go with the flow, especially during
December's excitement. Invest in

St. Pete Beach City

Commission Meeting

Public Comment

& Council Quotes

"Upham is the only area where we have enough beach." -City Man-
ager Mike Bonfield on shooting the fireworks from Upham Beach. Because
the 4th of July fireworks did not go off due to technical problems and hu-
man error the city gets its fireworks free next 4th of July. Plus, they can
have another fireworks show free before the end of the year, Bonfield said

"What's the big deal if we drop the speed?" -Commissioner Marvin
Shavlan on lowering the speed limit on Gulf Boulevard out of concern for
pedestrian safety.

"We need to look at how they set (the speed limit) in the first place
and why." -Vice Mayor Jim Parent, in response to Shavlan's suggestion
to lower the speed on Gulf Boulevard to 25 to 30 miles per hour. City Man-
ager Mike Bonfield said he would look into it.

"Our community does not have the organizations needed for this
type of facility." A resident, on a proposed early release or halfway
house on Corey Avenue. City Manager Mike Bonfield said the city has met
with one potential buyer of the building proposed for the facility but the
city had not received any applications for anything related to the facility.

"I am a humanitarian-people should be given chances... it's a com-
plex social issue." -Vice Mayor Parent saying he didn't think the philoso-
phy of a halfway house was bad although he thought it would be bad for
the city.

"One of the shops on Corey was selected as an outstanding business
of the year." -Commissioner Halpern, on Gone to the Dogs Boutique be-
ing recognized as a fine business.

Sea Breeze Film Festival
Coming To Gulfport
GULFPORT- Nomadic Tendencies is
bringing its Sea Breeze Film Festival
to Gulfport offering independent,
international films to a local audience.
The film events also help filmmakers
gain greater exposure for their films.
Sea Breeze Film Festival screens
films of all lengths and genres from
around the world. Large, commercial
film distributors and venues can
rarely afford to take on smaller films.
The goal of the Festival is to ensure
audiences in Tampa Bay have the
opportunity to see films that would
not otherwise be available to them.
The festival will be held on three
days from Friday, July 23 through
Sunday, July 25 at Gulfport's
Catherine Hickman Theater, 5501
27 Avenue S. Screenings take place

Individual film tickets are $5 for
children, military, students and
seniors; $7 for regular tickets; $12
for day passes; $30 for full festival
passes. For advance tickets, go online
to seabreeze.eventbrite.com. Tickets
will also be available at the Theater
during the festival.
The festival will screen 26
films, including ten features, five
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.
Titles include: the Dutch short
film Blossom, about a young woman

Aed Hatter's

Red & Purple

..-- -. ,a

unable to speak and her challenges
interacting in a speaking world; the
American documentary American
Dumpling, which explores the ties
that bind diverse cultures through
a common food that each shares: the
dumpling; Karaoke Show, a German
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 comedy
feature exposing the tangled lives of a
journalist, an architect, a psychiatrist,
a novelist, a librarian and others.

selected film trailers will be posted

Tall Ships Hit
Photo by Leigh Clifton
The Tall Ship Gloria, from Cartegna, Columbia
rests dockside at Channelside in Tampa. The
ship is one of three Tall Ships that participated
in Sail Tampa Bay, a waterside festival to
celebrate Tampa's rich maritime history. The
Gloria draws 16 ft 4", has a beam of 34 ft 8"
and is 249 feet long. Her mast dwarfs the 30 ft
palm trees that line the dock at Channelside.
All three ships, including the American USCG
Eagle, and Capitan Miranda from Uruguay,
offered tours aboard for the public.

Art is Ageless in St. Petersburg


ST. PETERSBURG- Fourteen residents of The Fountains at Boca Ciega Bay,
1255 Pasadena Avenue S., proudly displayed their original artwork in the
Friendship Room at The Fountains on June 29. While some of the exhibitors
are lifelong artists, others are new to their art forms and therefore considered
"young at art."
Two representatives from the Museum of Fine Arts in St. Petersburg were on
hand June 29 to help select five pieces from the resident exhibit for submission
to a nationwide contest sponsored by Watermark Retirement Communities.
Finalists from 25 Watermark communities coast to coast will be featured
in Expressions 2011, a calendar celebrating active aging and the arts. The
calendar will be released in December.

So ethl' oH my m
SBy Bill Northrop B_Northrop@theGabber.com

Spaceship Earth
M ost of the world and
certainly nearly all of the
U.S. is focused on the oil
leak, spill, whatever you want to call
it, in the Gulf of Mexico. Eventually,
the well will be capped and we'll
move on to another crisis somewhere.
In the meantime, while the Obama
administration calls for a moratorium
on deep water drilling (that's trying
to cap 30 per cent of the oil supplied
to this country), others fight to stop
drilling entirely, but philosophically
speaking I'm drawn to a book I read
in the early 1970s.
"Spaceship Earth" was actually
written in 1969 by an architect,
engineer, professor, inventor,
Buckminster Fuller. He was not the
first to use the phrase, but probably
the first to conceptualize its meaning.
Fuller didn't call for the cessation of
anything, simply the consideration
that mankind is together on a
spaceship on autopilot hurtling
through space at thousands of miles
an hour, spinning at 24,000 miles an
hour, fueled by the Sun and flung in
a giant orbit around it by the push

and pull of the gravity of our Sun, our
own planet and surrounding planets
and their moons and the glue of the
rest of the Universe.
It's a sobering concept of
interdependence on our spaceship
and the Universe. In today's lingo,
"it makes you think". He described
it this way: "It is a well-provisioned
ship, this on which we sail through
space. If the bread and beef above
decks seem to grow scarce, we but
open a hatch and there is a new
supply, of which before we never
dreamed. And very great command
over the services of others comes to
those who as the hatches are opened
are permitted to say, 'this is mine.'
So, besides discussing the trashing
of the Earth, he touches on our tribal
politics which usually leads to drastic
population control methods through
war. As I wrote, "makes you think".
I'm not certain where he would stand
on Global Warming. He died in 1983
and at the time, it was predicted that
we were headed for a Little Ice Age.
If I recall, he was concerned with
nuclear war because that was THE
big thing during the Cold War. I doubt
if he thought we were big enough to

really change the climate or move the
Earth's orbit, though he was aware
that earthquakes often effect the tilt
of the Earth even if temporarily. His,
however, was a universal view as in
The Universe. And, I suspect (I really
can't recall), that he would consider
the world's natural resources kind
of belonging to us all. However,
providing a workable plan for mutual
ownership was not covered.
Buckminster Fuller was a genius
although he didn't make it through
Harvard. Too much of a party-boy.
He was a pretty big failure outside of
Harvard until he was about 55 when
he "discovered" (better described as
"utilized") the concept of the Geodesic
Dome. Think Epcot at Disney and
the Spaceship Earth there. Think the
geodesic pattern in a soccer ball.
Actually, he kind of reminded me
of the crazy professor in "Back to
the Future". He designed functional,
round (Dymaxion) houses and a three
wheeled car (third wheel in the back
for steering) that could ride more than
five and be parallel parked in a spot
its own length. Those were failures,
but he continued to experiment with
just about anything structural.
Along the way, he did a definitive
study that showed that skin color
(those were the days of the Civil
Rights movement) is no more nor no
less the result of long time exposure
to the Sun. In other words, skin color
is irrelevant. It's only a book cover
arbitrarily designed by the Sun
and the position of your seat on the
Getting back to the protection and
conservation issue, I like the concept
of "Spaceship Earth". Be aware
of your provisions, search for new
ones, carefully use them, don't trash
the rest of the ship, be careful of
what and who you kill off and why,
remember that you're just a tiny part
of an entire Universe the concept of
which is larger than your tiny mind
can handle, but keep trying, keep
working, keep surviving and trying
to improve life for you and others...
you get the idea. Better yet, go to the
library and get the book.
I'll close with a remark from a
fictional cockroach brought to life by
another author, Don Marquis: "a man
thinks he amounts to a great deal but
to a mosquito he is merely something
good to eat."

Gulfport Centennial Countdown Continues!

100 Week

Countdown to 100 Years!


Laying a cornerstone? For City Hall? But which city hall, and where
and when? 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 13 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.
In 1935 a group of ladies decided
Gulfport needed a library and found
the little real estate office pictured last
week, abandoned by a former mayor for
an unpaid tax bill. They rounded up
1641 books and by the opening in May,
there were 323 members (out of a town
population of fewer than 1000). In 1940 it
was traded for the building now standing
at 3050 Beach Boulevard, and moved
down to the corner of Essex Avenue,
where it served commercial purposes for
many more years.

St. Pete Beach City Clerk Misuses City Credit Card
By Melissa Lattman
ST. PETE BEACH- The city clerk used a city credit card apparently for cash
advances and other expenses in Reno, Nevada while on city business. City
Clerk Teri McMaster reimbursed the city for $1,039.74 for airlines baggage
charges; cash advances at a casino and other expenses after a municipal clerk's
annual conference in May, according to a memo by the city manager.
City Manager Mike Bonfield recommended the commission consider options
of any disciplinary action at the July 13 city commission meeting. He provided
the commission with a memo outlining the situation and possible next steps.
"The use of city credit cards for personal business creates issues for the city
both directly and indirectly... the perceptions created and the example set by
a high ranking city employee who knew or should have known better are not
acceptable. Furthermore, the conduct herein alleged appears to have been
taken without any valid excuse, reflects a lack of sound managerial judgment."
Bonfield wrote.
Bonfield wrote that he had authorized the city clerk to attend the clerk's
conference with the city "paying for registration ($765) and meals ($325), while
the cost of travel and hotel room was to be paid by the City Clerk. It was also
understood the City Clerk's spouse would be traveling and they were planning
to stay a few extra days for a personal vacation at her expense...At no time
did the city Clerk before, during, or after the conference advise or request from
the City Manager the desire or the need to use the city credit card for cash
advances or other expenses listed (in the memo) for her personal use."
The commission decided to delegate authority to the city manager to consider
the situation and make a decision as to disciplinary action, if any he feels is
appropriate short of termination, which would have to be decided on by the
city commission.
The commission discussed the credit card use issue.
Maybe it's an issue of poor judgment, maybe she should just not have use of
the city credit card, Commissioner Halpern said.
Commissioner Garnett said she thinks the clerk "has beat herself up (over
this)...can't say we condone this. I think the personal embarrassment of this
is quite a lot."
Commissioner Shavlan said he thought the city manager would handle the
situation in a professional manner.
The City Clerk did not have any comment on the credit card situation.

One Acts
By Cathy Salustri

For one more weekend the
Gulfport Community Players
will stage their 10th Annual
Summer One-Act Festival.
This year the Players present
mostly comedies and cram a
variety of situations into less
than two hours.
Starting with a delightful
performance from newcomer
to the stage Kayla Becker
(Alice, in Ripples) the acting
in this year's compendium
of plays was among some of
the best on the Players' stage
this season. It's a shame that
the same can't be said of
some of the short plays.
Some of the best acting of
the evening comes through
in Gailand Kiltz' Food and
Drink Police. Mike Baggs,
who plays George, displays
more depth of character in
the first few moments of this
piece than he has in longer
pieces (a credit to Baggs as
well as director Gailand
Kiltz) and Eve O'Donnell,

who plays Alyssa, also does a
superbjob. The teenagers also
turn in great performances.
The downside is that within
three minutes the play starts
to sound and feel like Fox
News fantasy sequence, and
after a few pointed barbs
about healthcare reform, the
play stops being funny and
starts politicking.
Kiltz's other plays also
showcase some fine acting,
especially Norm Nash
(you may remember his
spectacular performance last
year, in Tina Marie Hansen's
Buying Back Brooklyn),
but the storylines are a
disservice to Nash and other
actors. The Old Man and the
C comes dangerously close
to parroting a funny e-mail
sent around a few years ago,
and Account (1 ..-.-. re-tells
a common urban legend.
That's not to say that these
plays aren't funny; however,
for those attending a one-
act play festival to see sharp
writing and bright ideas,
they disappoint.
While many of the plays
disappoint with writing that
doesn't live up to the actors'

abilities, two plays stand
out. Body Snatchers From
the Black Lagoon endears
itself through camp. Anyone
who chuckles at B horror
movies will enjoy this silly
little one act ("Everything
seemed normal until we
held hands!" may be the
best line of the evening).
Writer Stanley Toledo chose
his subject matter well and
doesn't attempt to pack too
much into a few moments,
which gives the actors time
to play with the script.
Coming Home, a short play
by Vic Carr (who also penned
the opening play, Ripples), is
predictable by the time the
second couple walks onstage,
but it doesn't matter: Carr
writes a heartfelt tribute
to coupledom through the
years, and all three sets of
actors perform beautifully.
This play has a few too many
words in it to be perfect,
and Gail Kitz (of the third
couple) oversells the punch
line at the end, but overall it
has a nice flow and a bit of a
twist at the end that make it
a delight.
The rest of the plays run
the gamut between the

ones described above, and
although there is no clear
star this year (as there
was last year with the
aforementioned Buying Back
Brooklyn), the plays are
mostly well-acted enough to
make it an enjoyable evening
of community theatre. The
Players march on every
year, giving opportunity to
burgeoning playwrights,
and, while some of this year's
selections don't measure
up, several do. The acting
steps in where the writing
falls down, in many cases
saving the evening if not the

City Charter Change Decision Delayed
ST. PETE BEACH- The city commission took the city attorney's advice to de-
lay a decision to place before voters in November if they want all compre-
hensive plan changes and amendments to be decided by the city commission.
Currently the city charter requires changes in density, intensity and height to
be approved by voters.
City Attorney Mike Davis recommended taking the item off of the agenda
until the July 27 meeting as the attorneys look at some of the legal implica-
tions of the agenda item.
Commissioner Marvin Shavlan said he assumed the delay relates to legal
strategy and could the commission have a shade meeting on the strategy. Da-
vis said they could not.
Vice Mayor Jim Parent asked does the legal discussion involve case law or
the judicial system?
Davis said they have done the legal research already and they are having
internal discussion between the lawyers.
Even with the item off of the agenda residents and the commission ended up
discussing it.
Resident Bill Pyle said he has heard comments about the lawsuits and all the
money spent on them. The cost of the lawsuits is small compared to unfinished
buildings that the city would need to maintain, he said.
Commissioner Garnett said the lawsuits today have nothing to do with 2005,
but the citizens plan, which was passed by the voters in 2008. Garnett said she
thought it was good the citizens pushed back on the earlier plans.
Pyle said the issue with the ballot case was people have the right to know
what they are voting on in terms of density and height. Shavlan said he thinks
everybody knows because Pyle articulated it clearly to the newspaper.
Mayor Finnerty said he hopes after the August and September trials that the
law suits finally end. "If its appealed and we are going to the Supreme Court
that's insane," he said.

St. Pete Beach Crosswalk Improvements
By Melissa Lattman
Residents can learn more
about planned crosswalk
improvements at a design
open house on July 29 from
5 until 7 p.m. Resident
input is wanted on the P
crosswalk project planned
for next summer.
The project's goal is
to improve pedestrian
safety on Gulf Boulevard
between 35th Avenue and
93rd Avenue. There will be
no formal presentations;
people are encouraged
to drop into the St. Pete
Beach Community Center
when convenient to speak
with state Department
of Transportation staff to The flag system is slated for 37 street crossing locations
discuss the project. on Gulf Boulevard.
Crosswalk safety has
been a continued concern in the city. Pedestrians have been hit this year by
Sweetbay Supermarket on Blind Pass Road and by 44th Avenue.
"What's going to make (crosswalks) safer are the medians, landscaping,
improved lighting and the flag system. Not only will we have the lights but
also we will have the flag system. The system sounds archaic but it has been
extremely effective (in other parts of the country)... the city plans to (request)
the rapid flashing system when it becomes approved and available," Mayor
Mike Finnerty said.
The pedestrian flag program, planned to start later this summer, is a
new program through the state DOT with retro-reflective flags to increase
pedestrian safety along Gulf Boulevard.
"When ready to cross the street, you simply pull a flag from the container at
the cross walk, and wave it proudly as you cross the street. Upon safe arrival
on the other side of the street, simply return your flag to the container," state
transportation officials wrote.
This summer's pedestrian flag system is slated for 37 GulBoulevard locations
including a couple in St. Pete Beach at 77th Avenue and 83rd Avenue. Treasure
Island locals are by 100th Avenue, 104th Avenue, 105th Avenue, 108th Avenue
and 124th Avenue
Plans for next summer include raised pedestrian refuge islands with
crosswalks-- south of 44th Avenue and north of Gulf Winds Drive. Seven
raised medians, which will be landscaped in the future by the city, will be
built between 64th Avenue and 73rd Avenue. Adding rectangular rapid flashing
beacons systems like those currently in use in St. Petersburg are not currently
part of the state planned improvements, state transportation officials said.
Since 2005 St. Petersburg has tested and now has operational a rapid-
flashing crosswalk system in more than 30 locations, which the city of St.
Petersburg has found effective 85 percent of the time in having a motorist
yield to a pedestrian. St. Petersburg found the amber light systems (like
those used currently in parts of St. Pete Beach) to be effective only 17 percent
of the time to get a motorist to stop.
The rectangular rapid flashing beacons are close to becoming approved by
the state. Once approved the state would need to evaluate where the system
would work best on the state's roads, Kris Carson of the state DOT said.
A brochure detailing the planned crosswalk improvements is available on
the city's Web site.

Osceola's Crying; A Musician's
Response to the Oil Spill
By Leigh Clifton
For over 90 days now, an oil
spill has gushed in the Gulf
of Mexico. Many people feel S
helpless in the wake of such
a massive tragedy; they are
angry and frustrated, hurt
by an oil company's apparent
reckless actions.
One local musician, Darrell
Clanton, has found a way
to vent those feelings of
frustration through his music.
Clanton is a Treasure Island
Canton is l a Teasurh e Island Songwriter/singer Chuck Cobb (Ift) and Osceola's
boy, as local as they come and Crying writer Darrell Clanton on the porch of the
he and fellow musician Chuck Peninsula Inn, in Gulfport. Clanton wrote Osceola's
Cobb have recorded perhaps Crying as a response to the BP Gulf oil spill.
one of the most relevant songs
of the oil spill; a song that captures the true essence of Old Florida and the
likes of which we will probably never see again. Osceola's Crying is Clanton's
anthem for the Gulf region and it is a powerful reminder of what a great loss
our waters would be if tainted with oil.
One of Clanton's friends was talking with him about the spill and reminded
him of the old Indian with the tear running down his face in the commercial
about polluting that ran in the '70's. A bell went off in his head. A successful
songwriter and singer in Nashville for almost 30 years, an idea came to him to
write a song that would embrace the feelings Floridians were having about the
devastation of the BP spill.
"I thought to myself, what's more Florida than Osceola, a great Indian
Chief, who was very vocal about the polluting of the Indian lands by the white
man. He was an environmentalist who cared deeply for the waters here and I
wondered how he would have reacted to this tragedy," Clanton explained.
Clanton immediately wrote the "hook"; he then wrote the words in a matter
of days and picked at the melody in a minor key to add the drama of the
American Indian's music.
"I wanted it to sound like it was written by a Native Indian," Clanton said. "I
thought it would have more impact."
The next step was to get the song to Chuck Cobb, a talented local songwriter
and singer in his own rite, who had worked with Darrell as a duo on the beach,
singing at local bars and restaurants. Clanton played the song for Cobb, who
was amazed.
"There was magic in it," Cobb said and immediately began to do all the vocal
arranging. The song was cut on a Tuesday and on Thursday Clanton, Cobb and
their back -up band De Lei'd Parrots stood on the beach and sang the song.
The result was an instant impact, first of Clanton's wife Debbie, who is Native
American, and then on Dan Mashburn, the sound engineer and producer who
would eventually shoot the video for the song in two days on the beach at
Treasure Island. It was a whirlwind five days.
The song was premiered last week on WMNF on Pete Gallagher's show where
it got a tremendous response from the listening audience. Clanton hopes to put
the song on ITunes and Rhapsody as a downloadable file, with the proceeds to
go to one of the needy group of people affected directly by the oil spill.
Osceola's Crying is a bittersweet ode to the ways of Old Florida and how
through greed and avarice, the purity of the coastline has been forever
compromised and lost perhaps forever.
There will be a video viewing party at 6pm on Tuesday, July 20, at the
Peninsula Inn in Gulfport. Go to www.thedunedoctor.com for more info on the
song and the upcoming video viewing party.

Host Families Needed
for Exchange Students
Pacific Intercultural Exchange (PIE)
is a non-profit organization looking
for caring families to host high
school students from many countries
around the world. The students are
between 15 17 years of age and will
attend school for an academic year or
semester at your local high school.
There is no such thing as a typical
host family. They accept single
parents, retiredcouples, families with
small children, teens or no children at
all! You can have a great experience
hosting an International teen. The
students are prescreened, speak
English and are looking forward to
learning about our culture while
teaching Americans about theirs.
Students will have medical insurance
and their own spending money to
cover clothing, school expenses,
entertainment, etc. Host families
should provide not only a loving home
and food for their daily meals, but
also a quiet place to be able to study
and bedroom to rest. Although host
families are not paid, one is eligible
to claim a charitable tax deduction of
$50 per month for every month the
student is in the home.

Chihuly Exhibit a Stunning Display
of Color and Form
By Leigh Clifton
An incredible collection by famous glass-blower/artist Dale Chihuly opened last
weekend at the Morean Arts Center in downtown St. Pete. The permanent collection
of 16 installations includes literally thousands of pieces of glass and is housed in a
10,000 square foot space designed by award -winning architect Alberto E. Alfonso
on the ground floor of 400 Beach Drive. The collection encompasses both his glass-
blown works as well as a wall of drawings, using textured paper and different styles
of paints and medium.
One of the most fascinating of his designs is the Chandelier. The collection houses
three of them; massive, multihued constructions that encompass thousands of pieces
of blown glass, painstakingly put together by (' liluly's team, who oversees all the
installations. The chandeliers are suspended from the ceiling by cables; the Vinoy
boasts one of their own in their Grand Ballroom. There is also a beautiful installation
of free-form flowers and stems; vibrant and loud, that sits on a black reflective
Plexiglas base. The lighting is superb and well-thought out. The reflections carry
into the entire room.
The unveiling of the opening was attended by many notables including St. Petersburg
Mayor Bill Foster and Beth Morean, the art center's benefactress, who was on hand A signature piece, this blue chandelier
to help cut the very unusual is made of thousands of pieces of
ribbon, designedintrue ('l1111iuhL hand-blown glass and is part of the
colors. Mayor Foster, as well permanent Chihuly collection at the

Uii~SOCIALTMECft1ll1jr-y I^

By Tom Margenau
Life is Complicated ...
so is Social Security
Q: I enjoyed reading your fact sheet
about maximizing Social Security
benefits. But after looking it over,
I have just one question: how did
Social Security get so complicated?
A: I know that was only a half serious
question. But it got me to thinking,
and I'll give you a wholly serious
answer. Social Security has gotten
complicated over the years because
life has gotten more complicated.
Also, because as a society, we are
always trying to be as fair as we can
to as many people as possible.
If you think about it, when Social
Security started in the 1930s, men
worked outside the home and women
didn't (for the most part). Marriages
lasted forever -- more or less -- and
children were raised in two-parent
homes by their biological mothers
and fathers. Today, both men and
woman work, divorce is common and
blended families are almost the norm.
I'll always remember helping a young
teenager fill out his application for a
Social Security number. When we
got to the question about his father's
name, he asked me: "Do you want my
real dad, my stepdad or the name of
the man my mom is living with?"
Anyway, Social Security has had to
change over the years to respond to
society's transformations. One of my
favorite reference works is a book
entitled "History of the Provisions
of the Social Security Act." (Now
you know how boring my life is!)
It provides a nice summary of the

Gabber July 5 July 27, 2070

evolution of the Social Security
Passed in 1936, the original Social
Security Act provided retirement
benefits for workers (again, mostly
men) age 65 and older ... period.
But even before the first monthly
benefits were paid in 1940, the Social
Security Act was amended in 1939
to add benefits for: wives age 65
and older, children under age 18 of
retired workers, widows age 65 and
older, and widows of any age with
small children.
In 1950, Congress decided that a
wife of a retiree should be able to
get monthly benefits, even if she was
under age 65 if she was caring for her
husband's minor children. They also
realized that there were a few stay-
at-home dads out there, so they added
benefits for dependent husbands and
widowers at age 65 and older.
There was a big Social Security
amendment package in 1956. It
recognized that many workers did not
stay healthy until retirement age, so
disability benefits were added to the
program. Initially, the law restricted
such payments to disabled workers
over age 50. But just four years later,
they expanded coverage to workers of
all ages.
In 1956, Congress also decided to
make reduced retirement benefits
available as early as age 62 -- but
only for women. They also allowed
spouses of retired workers to claim
benefits at 62. Further, they lowered
the eligibility age for widows from 65
to 62.
A lot of men must have complained
about pre-age 65 benefits being made
available only to women, because
in 1961, Social Security laws were
changed to grant early retirement
benefits to men and early husband's
benefits to stay-at-home dads.
Imagine you were a 62-year-
old woman involved in a terrible
marriage in 1960. You had been
married to your husband for almost
40 years when you finally couldn't
take it anymore and decided to get
a divorce. But then imagine your
shock when you learned that you

were not eligible for a nickel of your
ex's Social Security, even though you
spent four decades cooking his meals,
cleaning his house and washing his
In 1965, Congress finally recognized
this was unfair, so they added
benefits for divorced wives and
widows. The original law limited
benefits to women who had been
married for at least 20 years. But
frustrated women told Congress that
being married to that no good bum for
even 10 years was worth something,
so in 1977, they lowered the duration
of marriage rule to the 10-year mark
-- where it remains today. And on the
same subject, men pointed out that
sometimes they are the ones who get
the shaft in a bad marriage. So in
1983, Social Security benefits were
granted to divorced husbands and
The list of amendments to the Social
Security Act goes on and on. In the
late 60s, the eligibility age for widows
and widowers was lowered from age
65 to age 60. Disabled widows and
widowers under age 60 were added to
the roles beginning in 1968. Fathers
caring for young children without a
mother finally got benefits in 1983 --
to match benefits young widows had
been receiving since 1939.
I don't have anywhere near enough
room to list all the changes that have
happened to Social Security since the
original act was passed in 1935. But
I will make this interesting point.
In the entire 75-year history of the
program, I can think of only a handful
of Social Security benefits that have
been cut. For example, children of
retired or deceased workers used to
be able to claim benefits until age 22
if they were in college. Beginning in
1981, the cutoff date was dropped to
age 18. Also, widowed mothers and
fathers used to receive benefits until
the youngest child turned 18. The
1981 Social Security amendments
lowered that age to 16. And in next
week's column, I will address one of
the most controversial cuts ever made
to the Social Security program.



By Robert J. Myers, Esquire
Joint Ownership -
A Will or a Trust
Andy, a widower with four children,
had most ofhis available cash invested
into four Certificates of Deposit. The
teller at the bank told Andy that if
he would hold each C/D in a trust
for each of his children, there would
be no probate on Andy's death and
each child would then automatically
become the owner of one C/D. What
the bank teller advised Andy was
true, but Andy was probably not told
the whole story.
If Andy was to hold one C/D in trust
for each of his children, whose money
would be used if Andy required
expensive surgery, twenty-four hour
home care or care in a nursing home?
Under such circumstances, what had
been planned as an equal distribution
on death would substantially
decrease the inheritance of one or

more of his children because money
would be spent for Andy's care. In
addition, if each of Andy's C/D's were
held in trust for one of his children,
another problem would arise if Andy
became incapacitated. No one would
have access to Andy's money and
then it would be necessary to have
the Court appoint a guardian for
Andy. Even though the guardian
could be one of Andy's children, this
could create a needless expense and
a great inconvenience.
At the very least, Andy should have
a Will which states that whatever
money is left in Andy's estate after
the costs of his daily living, lifetime
care and final expenses have been
paid will be distributed to his children
equally, if that is Andy's wishes.
This Will, of course, would require
a probate on Andy's death but Andy
would have been provided for during
his lifetime.
A much better way of handling
Andy's estate, however, would be for
Andy to create a Living Trust. He
could then place all of his assets into
the trust by transferring the title to
his assets from his individual name
into his name as Trustee of his trust.
Andy would then retain full control
of his assets while he is competent, or

chooses to have such control, but upon
his incapacity the successor trustee
that he names in the trust (this may
be one or more of his children) takes
over control of Andy's assets, pays his
bills and keeps a record of receipts
and disbursements. The trust will do
the following things for Andy and his
1. Significantly avoid probate
costs and provide for immediate
distribution of all assets on Andy's
2. Avoid the necessity of
a guardianship if Andy is
3. Provide money management
during Andy's lifetime if Andy is
unable to manage his own finances.

Be Aware of the
County Tethering Law
A Pinellas County ordinance that
was passed in May by the Board of
County Commissioners has put some
teeth in a local effort to cut the chain
on tethered dogs. Chaining or tying
a dog to a tree or other object can be
a form of animal cruelty. Dogs are
often left without adequate food,
water or shelter and are adversely
affected when left alone for long
periods of time without proper care.
Tethering is a potential danger to
dogs that get tangled or attempt to
jump over fences, and they can suffer
from neck and throat injuries due to
a taut collar.

Several partners are working in a
educate them about the dangers
and unlawful act of tethering, and
ultimately issue citations to enforce
the ordinance. With the support of
concerned citizens, Pinellas County
Animal Services, SPCA Tampa Bay
and the Humane Society of Pinellas
are providing outreach to heighten
the awareness of the general public,
as well as those who are violating
the law.
The anti-tethering law includes a
ban against the tethering of puppies
or dogs that are sick or injured and
limits tethering a dog to a stationery
object, such as a tree or fence, for
a short period of time required to

complete a temporary task. The dog
must have access to water, adequate
shelter and dry ground. Tethering
with a running line or pulley
system is permitted under certain
Ending the violations through
education is the primary goal of
local humane organizations. The
partners will help identify violators
and provide educational material to
them. The county's code enforcement
officers will issue warnings, andifthe
violation continues, they will issue
citations. Pending investigation,
citations and fines of up to $500
could be levied against owners that
violate the ordinance.

ordinance, visit www.pinellascounty.

cruelty, call 727-582-2600.

most beautiful flower of Mount Carmel, fruit-
ful vine, splendor of heaven. Blessed Mother
of the Son of God, Immaculate Virgin, assist
me in my necessity. 0 star of the sea, help me
and show me here you are my mother. 0 Holy
May, Mother of God, Queen of Heaven and
Earth, I humbly beseech you from the bottom
of my heart to succor me in necessity (make
request). There are none that can withstand
your power. 0 Mary, conceived without sin,
pray for us who have recourse to thee. (3
times.) Holy Mary, I place this cause in your
hands. (3 times.) Say this prayer for 3 consec-
utive days and then you must publish it and it
will be granted to you. C.T.

Holy Spirit, you who solves all problems, who
lights all roads so that I can attain my goal,
you who give me the divine gifts to forgive
and 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 mate-
rial illusions. I wish to be with you, in eternal
glory.Thankyou for your mercy toward me and
mine. C.T.
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.
