newest revival of the 600 block of Central Avenue, many
galleries, shops and restaurants are starting to bring much
needed business back into the downtown St. Pete area. For

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
from 2 p.m. until 11 p.m. each day.
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
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.
More information, film schedules and
selected film trailers will be posted
to SeaBreezeFilmFestival.blogspot.

Email your request to News@theGabber.com
By Cathy Salustri
City of Gulfport
Q: At Gulfport council meetings, some council members correct the
minutes in front of everyone. Can't they request these changes before
the meeting? Sometimes these changes seem small; does the city have to
provide transcripts of each meeting?
A: According to the city clerk, Lesley DeMuth, no, council members
can't request changes, corrections, or deletions after the Clerk gives the
minutes to council for review. However, the city's does not have to provide
a verbatim transcript. The law only says that the city take written minutes
of public boards or committees.

Gabber July 22-July 28, 2010




























Stacy MIosher, Gulfport: "No, 1
don't think it's gotten any better. All
of the small businesses seem to be
closing down at a pretty fast rate, and
people are still homeless. I'm a (N.\
certified nursing assistant, and I see a
lot of people struggling. I have clients
on Medicare and Medicaid who can't
afford their medication. They can't
afford to stay in their homes and
afford their meds. So they're moving
in with their families because they're
losing their homes. So many of my
friends are unemployed and handing
out 20-30 resumes a week and
there's still no work. Even though
the numbers are indicating that the
economy is getting better, it's just not
translating to the people on the street.
There are jobs out there but for every
job opening, there might be 500-1000
applicants lined up just for one job.
Most of the small businesses that are
hiring are only looking for part-time
people they don't have to pay benefits
for. They always ask if that job will
be your only source of income; they
may not hire you because they know
if you're not making the money you
need to live on, you might quit."


Joe Walker, Gulfport: "I think
it's bad and even though they say
it's getting better, it's not. They
say real estate prices are going
down and that's an indicator for a
growing economy. Well, I'm recently
unemployed; I worked as courier for
a state-wide company. I was making
$150 a day and they sold my job to
someone else that would do it for
$110 a day; I found out my job was
listed on Craig's list; one of my
friends called me and said they saw
it listed. I confronted my employer,
who said they would talk to me at the
end of the day. They just wanted me
to finish my shift. When I got in, they
let me go. This just happened last
week. I've been sending out resumes
and I have two interviews tomorrow.
There are jobs out there but they're
paying about 60% less than they used
to. My mother was in the airport in
Washington, DC and saw a gal that
she knew who used to make $100,000
a year. Now she's driving a cab!"


Maureen Sharon, St. Pete,
and Vendor at the Gulfport
Tuesday Morning Market: "With
summertime it has slowed down
here but as far as the economy is
concerned, it's getting better. I notice
it in my sales. My sales are slow
right now, but I'm lucky that I have
good regular customers who know
I'm here every Tuesday and they
come to see me. For me personally, I
think the economy has gotten better.
This year it's been very busy on this
side of the street. Very often, I used
to be the only one on this block. Now
there are several other vendors on
this side. I've also noticed that prices
seem to be coming down; people are
buying more and can afford more.
The people seem to be happier, more
hopeful; at least my customers seem
to be. I'm not sure if they've just come
to grips with what's going on or else
they've learned to just deal with it.
Whatever reason it is, my customers
are happier and that helps my
1,U-mll,.--'


Kimberly Weaver, Gulfport: "I work at (0 1M1.iIly's and the tips have gone down
dramatically. The percentage of tips used to always be around 15-20%. It's dropped to
around ten percent now. It's not just me; it's all the people who are in the restaurant
business. The oil spill has probably had a huge impact as far as tourism. Tourism
is down and people are really tightening their belts. Eating out is one of the first
expenditures that go when people cut back on spending. I don't think the economy
is any better at all. We used to get a big hit from September through November. But
last year was so cold for so long, it killed it for us. Now with the oil spill, the hit we
get from spring just didn't happen."

Letters
Thanks for the Love
Dear Editor: Don and Rose would
like to thank everyone who attended
and contributed to Kirby's memorial.
Never are we more aware of how
much friends mean than at the
time of bereavement. Kirby touched
many people in his lifetime and it
showed by those who attended. We
would especially like to thank R.W.
Caldwell for their donation to rent
the hall. To Mayor Yakes and those
who spoke and shared a memory of
Kirby. To 6 year old Shane Schippers
who paid tribute by saying a prayer
to his peepaw. To Joe Guenther from
C' 1l.llld's for all his help with the
food and music. To all of those who
stayed to clean up and to Rand,
Ryland, Heidi & Tammy for all your
support, we couldn't have done it
without you. Thank you for the love
we all have for Kirby.


A Player
Responds to Review
Dear Editor: Thank you for your
review of the Gulfport Community
Players' One Act Festival in the July
15, 2010 issue of the Gabber by Cathy
Salustri.
While her comments were mostly
complimentary, they were a bit one


sided. She could have come back stage
and talked with everyone instead of
being selective with her commentary.
There are a couple of plays with good
writing and good acting which didn't
even warrant a mention. Maybe they
aren't to her taste, but they should
be put out there for people to decide
for themselves. Everyone concerned,
writers, actors, back-stage workers
have worked very hard to be as
"professional" as their ability will
allow. Considering the length of her
article every play could have at least
been mentioned.
I happen to be in the last play,
"Roomies," written by Olga Kruse.
It was not an easy play to learn as
the two main characters have some
memory loss -- maybe she didn't like
it -- but we put the work in, and I
think we deserved a mention.
Thank you for all you do.


Dear Editor: Allow me to express
my thanks to Clay Lott at the Gulfport
Utilities Department for promptly
responding to my request to repair
my driveway and curb. And to Eric
and the mechanics at the Gulfport
Garage for getting my car in shape.
Goodjob, guys! Thanks for your great
service.
What a great town we live in!

My beloved
Oreo passed
away in my
arms Monday,
June 21st,
2010. Oreo
Made many
friends during
our evening walks along the
waterfront and Beach Boulevard.
He had separation anxiety which
caused him to be very outgoing.
His separation anxiety caused
every person in his life to abandon
him, which is what what he feared
the most. Together we found a way
to minimize his separation anxiety
without drugs. His dailywalks were
part of his therapy. I made him a
promise that I would stay with him
whatever came our way. He was
between 15 to 18 years old when
I held him in the veterinarian's
office as they put him down. I was
able to keep my promise. He was
always waiting at the gate to the
car park whenever I would come
home. He is buried next to that
gate where he kept watch. Oreo, I
miss you but the happy memories
of our years together will be with
me forever. Oreo wasn't perfect,
but he was perfect for me.
Rest in Peace, Chaz

ItStoroscoDe Guide


CANCER (June 22-July 22).
Getting the details of your life
together will help you get the big
picture on track. Mundane activities
will be rewarding. Gazing at a freshly
mowed yard or opening drawers
filled with clothes that are laundered
and pressed -- these results give you
a surge of confidence. You are the
master of your domain.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). It may
feel like your heart is not your own,
like it's being housed in someone
else's body and you can only hope
the person will care for it -- and for
themselves -- in a way that keeps
your love strong. It feels this way,
but there is still much you can do to
bring happy energy into both of your
worlds. Focus there.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22).
Wrestling with fate is exhausting
work. You know because you watch
people do it all the time. You've even
done it yourself. But this week, your
preference is to go with the flow,
harnessing existing energies to
help you along. A powerful blast of
positive energy will come at the best
possible time.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You'll
march forward with a meaningful
project. Challenges are inevitable,
but you will dwell on them just long
enough to solve the problem and go
forward. Lamenting, complaining
or doing the "poor me" thing is out
of the question -- there's simply not
enough time. By Saturday, you've
arrived at a resting place.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). In the
spirit of helping out, you will deliver
a bit of news. You can't control how
others react to it, but you can say
your piece gently and with discretion.
After all, a sugarcoated truth is still
a truth. The weekend shows you at
the center of the social swirl again.
The party will be better for your
contribution.


SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21).
Whatever the problem is, there are
several solutions that will work.
Thinking there is only one right
way will put too much pressure on
the situation. Loosen up. Be open
to different information. With a
winning attitude, you will solve this
in the best way for you. A forward-
thinking Aquarius will help.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19).
Make your list of requirements --
not because making the list will
ensure that you get what you want,
but because making the list will
help you realize that some of your
expectations are a little much. The
realization will help you to let go,
open your mind and let life come
rushing forward to embrace you.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). So
manypeoplebelieve they arepawnsin
the game of life. But you know better
-- you have many options available to
you. You can move in fancy ways or
simple ways, whichever will suit the
moment. You have your eyes open to
the possibilities this week, and your
moves will be winning.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The
storm is only a mess if you are
standing inside it. But you have
the safety of shelter. Through the
windowpane, the mess is once
removed, almost entertaining. That's
how it is for your friend's current
storm. You're not out in it; you can
only watch it. And the best you can
do is offer a towel and a hot drink.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Just as
the sky accepts the clouds that pass
through its atmosphere, you'll accept
the thoughts that drift through your
mind. It's not the sky's fault that
some of the clouds aren't so pretty.
And it's not your fault about the
thoughts, either. Be like the sky and
just let them pass. Let them drift
away and disappear.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The
metaphor that applies best: You can't
be born without going through birth.
You like an easy transition, but it
doesn't always benefit you to have
things so easy. Whatever difficulties
you encounter, these are just part of
your initiation into a new state. You'll
emerge from this process brand-new.
GEMINI (Il.Iy 21-June 21).
Being separated from a loved one
temporarily will be healthy for
both parties. And this, compared
with what some go through, is very
minor. What if you were a soldier or
a standup comedian on a road tour
or an astronaut on a space journey?
Loving your dear one from afar will
strengthen your commitment.
This Week's Birthdays: You hit a
fun groove at the top of this new era.
Travel will be part of the equation.
You are quite impressive to those of
a different culture. Have patience
in August when loved ones lean
heavily on you. Your grace will teach
others how to live well. You'll get an
interesting new job opportunity in
September. You'll be performing or
presenting in October. Big purchases
go smoothly in December. January is
the most romantic. You will invest in
yourself and get a surge of confidence
in March.

Safeguard Your
Dogs Against Heat
Hot weather is often deadly for
dogs who can succumb to heatstroke
in just 15 minutes and suffer brain
damage as a result. Dogs who are
left in parked cars are especially
susceptible.
Symptoms of heatstroke include
restlessness, excessive thirst, heavy
panting, lethargy, lack of appetite,


dark tongue, vomiting and lack of
coordination. If you see a dog showing
any of these symptoms, get him or
her into the shade immediately and
call a veterinarian. Lower the dog's
body temperature by providing water
to drink, applying a cold towel to the
head and chest, or immersing the dog
in tepid (not cold) water.
PETA (People for the Ethical
Treatment of Animals) makes
the following suggestions for
safeguarding animals.

Don't carry your dog in the bed of
a pickup truck. While this practice
is always dangerous, heat brings the
added danger that dogs' feet might
be burned on hot metal.
Don't take your dog jogging, except
on cool mornings or evenings. Rest
often, and take plenty of water.
Trim heavy-coated dogs' fur, but
leave an inch of fur for protection
against insects and sunburn.
Keep dogs inside. If they absolutely
must stay outside, at least try not to
keep them outside during the hottest
part of the day. Provide all-day shade,
drinking water in a heavy bowl and a
kiddie pool.

St. Pete Beach Litigation Update
A judge ordered the city to turn over transcripts of several shade (closed)
commission meetings for review in his chambers by July 22. The order
by Circuit Judge David Demers is in response to a lawsuit by Bruce Ka-

conducting a vote or deliberating at a public meeting regarding offers and
counteroffers to settle ongoing litigation. State law says in part "the sub-
ject matter of the meeting shall be confined to settlement negotiations or
strategy sessions related to litigation expenditures."

Garden. from front paae


In early May the garden was in full swing for the first spring planting.


radishes, turnips, and rutabagas are the most commonly grown root crops.
Since they are hardy, they may be planted early in the spring, and left in the
garden until late fall. In addition, the tops of beets and turnips are commonly
used as cooked greens and can be harvested while the plants are young. It's also
a great time to plants herbs, according to Topher Ross, a landscape architect
who has helped design the Community Garden.
The Garden plots are 4' by 15' or 60 square feet and there are about 12
that are actively in use. There are currently another 12 now available for the
fall planting. According to Longhouse owner Andrea Royce, "the garden has
brought together people with a common interest and further strengthened the
sense of community that Gulfport is so famous for."
It truly is a community effort; Coppola Tree Service provided the mulch, West
Coast Fence donated the fence, England Brothers did the tilling and clearing
of the land, and Jane Buck and John Font have been educating the planters
about which plants to grow. Some Eckerd college students volunteered one
weekend to pull weeds, clean up the beds and lay down the mulch. The all-
organic Garden would love to have some volunteers to help weed and keep the
beds clean. If you don't want a plot, you can become a "friend" of the Garden
for a modest $10.00. That money helps to defray costs for upkeep. The City
provides the water; there is a City hookup that is locked. All growers are
provided a key to both the front gate and the water spigots lock.
"Now is the time to get your fall plot," Royce said. She was pleased with
the spring planting turnout and hopes the fall planting generates the same
interest. "It takes time for a community project to get off the ground," she
said.
But overall, everyone is happy with the plots. The neighbors have started to
come out and talk with the planters; one guy brought his chicken out to say
hello. As Royce said, "Add more beauty; add more positive, more light and you
just get more of the same!"
If you would like to reserve a fall plot, visit www.so49.org for more info and
pricing. The garden also has a "wishlist" which includes a wheelbarrow, garden
tools, and hoses. Visit the Garden on Preston Ave South. The Community
Garden Project Volunteer Information form is now available for download.
Please print it, fill it out, and drop it off or mail it to BanyanScapes, 932 49th
Street South, St. Petersburg, Fl. 33707

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 pinellascounty.org.

Emergency Energy
Assistance for Seniors
Pinellas County Health and Human
Services Department provides
emergency energy assistance of up
to $600 to senior citizens unable to
pay their power bills.
Funds from the Area Agency
on Aging of Pasco/Pinellas Inc.
can help residents 60 and older
in danger of having their power
disconnected during the designated
cooling and heating seasons when
demand and bills are higher than
normal. Eligible seniors must have
a crisis with a delinquent notice
from the utility company or a notice
that power has been shut off to be
considered for help. They may also
qualify to receive repairs to a cooling
unit or a voucher for fans, heaters
and blankets.
Eligible seniors can receive help
up to twice a year during each high-
demand season. Health and Human
Services staff members screen
applicants to determine if they meet
income limits. The income limit is
150 percent of the Federal Poverty
Guideline. For a household of one,
the limit is $16,245 a year. For two
people, the income limit is $21,855
(add $5,610 for each additional
member of family units with more
than eight members.)
Prospective clients can either stop
by a Health and Human Services
office or call for an appointment
and information. Call Annie Shaw
at 727-464-8400 in Clearwater or
Anne Eicher at 727-582-7781 in
St. Petersburg. Health and Human
Services offices are located at
2189 Cleveland Street, Suite 230,
Clearwater and at 647 First Avenue
N. in St. Petersburg.

Gulfport City Council Meeting


Public Comment


& Council Quotes

"For each additional person assigned to a nurse, the risk of death
goes up seven percent."- Gwen Collins, a nurse who is in favor of the
Florida Hospital Patient Protection Act. This act will, among other things,
limit the number of patients a nurse can care for at one time. Ms. Collins
asked the city to pass a resolution urging the legislature to pass the bill,
known as House Bill 1238 and Senate 2316.


"She was just standing in our flower garden and collapsed...Why
do they (Southwest Florida Water Management District) try and
teach kids about runoff and then do nothing?" Catherine Hicks,
about Edie, an egret who collapsed in her front yard while waiting for the
food Ms. Hicks' family feeds the bird

"It's really fun for me to work on things to try and help Gulfport,"
-Councilwoman Jennifer Salmon

The Gulfport City of Imagination Arts
Center Launches Call for Artists


By Leigh Clifton

The newly formed Gulfport City
of Imagination Arts Center has
found a home in the original Arts
Center building between the dog
parks. With donated materials, the
board members, combined from
both the Arts Center and City of
Imagination, painted the inside
walls, hung painting strips for art
displays and will be redoing the
floor. The Arts Center building had
sat unused except for the City as a
storage place for odds and ends. The
Board approached the City and with
the negotiated rent of $1 a year, the
Gulfport City of Imagination Arts
Center had found a home.
At the first meeting of the Arts Center
last Saturday evening, several local
artists, gallery owners, musicians
and photographers gathered to meet
and greet and discuss the vision of
the organization.
"Our main goal is to make this a
community space to keep art alive in


Gulfport", said Board member Davis
Bewley, a former teacher and artist.
The space will be available for
art classes, as a studio, lectures, or
youth art activities, truly a multi-
use facility. There will be a modest
membership fee of $25.00 and the
space will be used on a scheduled
basis. There are classes currently
being taught in the space. The Board
will have several different formats
for class/studio/lecture times. Those
details are being worked out as well
as the payment structure for the artist
who presents a class or lecture.
Catherine Weaver, an afro-centric
artist, poet and writer who opened
her new Gallery Uniquely Original
on Beach Blvd. in June, was excited
about the new Arts Center.
"I've taught for more than 30 years
and I draw on my experiences with
domestic abuse to translate into my
art. I also teach summer art classes
to children. In fact, I would like to
make a call out to local children to
come to my gallery. I want to help


them make giant placard- board
cutouts of Geckos for the upcoming
Gecko Festival. We can use the new
space at the Arts Center to paint
them."
The meeting, headed by City of
Imagination volunteers Jessica
Sager andMarlene Shaw, was a mash
of great ideas; there were calls for an
open monthly meeting to spotlight an
artist of the month. As Sager said, "It
has to be fun!"
The first event the Arts Center
will be sponsoring is the Gulfport
Centennial Art Celebration, October
16th and 17th at the Casino. Everyone
who has ever lived or worked in
Gulfport is encouraged to submit one
piece of art, to be hung at the Casino,
where all the art will then be judged
and prizes given out.
With the Gulfport City of
Imagination Arts Center, it looks like
Gulfport will get back to its roots; the
funky, artsy and co-operative style of
life that made everyone move here in
the first place. And that's a very good
thing.

Oil Dependence
Does anyone remember the oil
crisis of 1973 (andlater 1979)?
Barack Obama was only
12 and was probably in Indonesia
or Hawaii or, at that age directly
unaffected. Whatever. The crisis
came from a shortage of oil caused by
an embargo by OPEC (Organization
of Petroleum Exporting Countries)
of oil sent to western nations. This
was punishment for their supporting
Israel against the Arab nations in
the Yom Kippur war.
The embargo lasted only six
month, but those who do remember
it remember gasoline rationing,
long lines at the pumps, not being
able to get to work, and a stagnant
economy. Does the six months sound
familiar? That's the length of the
moratorium on oil production in


the Gulf of Mexico ordered by the
Obama administration. That area
produces 30 per cent of our domestic
oil production.
The next oil crisis came in 1979 with
the Iranian Revolution. It's net effect
was a surge in oil and gasoline prices
and stagnation and high inflation.
The point is that we in this country
are highly vulnerable to oil stoppages,
shortages, embargoes, and so forth.
And, yes, we should have weaned
ourselves from oil by now, but we
haven't. That's a fact.
In fact, we still import most of our
oil. Those top importers are Canada,
Saudi Arabia, Mexico, Venezuela,
Nigeria, Angola and Iraq. Saudi
Arabia is a staunch ally (for now),
but vulnerable to Mid-East turmoil.
Mexico is in turmoil. Venezuela is
an enemy, Nigeria and Angola are

unstable and Iraq, while dependent
upon us, is vulnerable to Iranian
ambitions.
Think about it. While oil polluted
beaches would ruin Florida's
economy, so would people not being
able to get here. We import tourists
and they need oil to get here whether
by plane or car. Even if Florida
protects itself from oil drilling or,
rather, oil spilling, if the rest of the
country doesn't have enough oil the
Florida economy's in the tank.
And, yes, that does support the
argument for alternative fuels. But,
no, alternative fuels can't supplant
oil which is used for more than
energy. Canada, a stable country
and ally, wants to provide more
oil via a pipeline from its tar sands
resources. However, our EPA,
opposes it for environmental reasons.
Environmentalists also oppose
further drilling in Alaska.
All this means more imports from
unstable and unfriendly countries
abroad and certainly much higher
gasoline prices. Maybe we should pay
more for gasoline because that's a
sure way to push conservation. We'd
drive less and maybe slower and
buy only small, efficient cars. The
problem is balancing this against a
further economic slowdown (another
way to conserve energy). Anyone for
more unemployment?
Then there's rationing. Richard
Nixon imposed that in 1973, along
with wage and price controls. Both
moves were devastating. Jimmy
Carter lifted the rationing and let
market forces work which relieved
the pressure until we got hit with
the Iranian hostage problem and an
Iranian oil embargo. But, those are
other stories. We're stuck with the
one we have now.

In just 12 weeks, Gulfport will
celebrate the centennial of its
incorporation, October 12, 1910. We'll
be reminding you every week with an
interesting old photograph from the
collection of the Historical Museum. See
if you can identify the people, places, and
above all the decade of each picture as it
comes along. To make it a little bit of a
challenge, we won't publish the correct
caption until the following week.

LAST WEEK'S ANSWER:
Last week's picture showed Mayor Fox
and council laying the cornerstone for
Gulfport's second city hall. It was 1953,
and the town had decided to erect the
building on their own, since the lowest
bid had come in at three times their
budget, $39,000. Councilman Horan was
project director; others in the picture
are Councilmen Stambaugh, Williams,
Fussell, and Douglas. The cornerstone is
now located in the garden at the Historical
Museum.

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 coordinated effort to identify
violators, 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
conditions.
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 willissue 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.
For more information on the
ordinance, visitwww.pinellascounty.
org and to report cases of animal
cruelty, call 727-582-2600.

2010 National Night Out
National Night Out is August 3. Gulfport Crime Awareness and Prevention
has stepped up to the plate for an event from 6-9 p.m. that evening. Our
preliminary plan is to gather at the Neighborhood Center for a kick off of the
"Give Neighborhood Crime and Drugs a Going-Away Party".
The kick off will be a walk to show a united effort of both municipalities
(Gulfport and St. Petersburg) to include residents and businesses from both
sides of 49th Street. The walk will start on 49th Street S. and 16th Avenue (in
front of the Neighborhood Center) and go south to the Tangerine Greenway
(Tangerine Avenue/18th Avenue S.). The Tangerine Greenway will then be
the site for the "Going Away Party". The intent is for community building,
education and a united effort.
JD Burrell will be providing music! So49, Hungry Howie's and Dragonz Eyes
Tattoos on Central Avenue are participating.
All Crime Awareness Groups are encouraged to participate and set up on the
Greenway! For more information contact Jeri Reed at 727-548-5566 (days),
727-327-3509 (evenings) or at JRvolunteer@aol.com.

By Leigh Clifton

Marines are tough, Marines
are strong, Marines don't cry
and they never leave a man
behind. But what happens
when those same Marines
return from the horrors of
war, the sheer terror of the
non-descript rock that turns
out to be an IED that blows
up half your platoon? How do
they come back to a society
that really has no clue how
much terror that visual can
instill in a tough, strong
Marine? That loud noises
make them jump out of their
skin, and loving relationships
turn to dust from the strain
of civilian life after war?
Javier Centonzio knows.
He's a tough, strong Marine
veteran, who, for nine years
of his life, gave to his country.
When he came home, nothing
was the same; nothing would
ever be again. He began the
negotiating that all veterans
must do to get benefits owed
to them for help with issues
that haunt them.
He decided on Stetson Law
School to help others when he
realized it couldn't be done
alone. So this past summer,
working with Stetson Law
Professor Charlie Rose,
also a vet, Javier began to
volunteer at the Veterans
Appellate Rights Clinic Rose
started as a solution to the
lengthy benefits negotiating
process. Another Stetson
Law Professor, Jon Tuthill,
also a veteran, runs the clinic
that helps veterans start the
appeals process. The Court
of Appeals for Veteran's
Claims or CAVC is the next
step in the progression of
appeals. The clinic helps get
the process started.
"Part of the problem,"
Javier said "is that it takes
so long for the benefits to be
approved by the government.
Meanwhile, vets who can't
get into counseling suffer
with a myriad of symptoms,

Gabber July 22 July 28, 2010


ranging from fear of crowds,
over reactions to loud noises,
migraines, nightmares and
paralyzing fear. It affects
their lives, their families and
their jobs."
With Javier, it took a year
for his benefits to kick in.
"Ihop e thatIcanhelp another
vet who's going through what
I went through. For me, it's a
constant struggle, but I am
getting better. I want those
vets to know there is help
out there and people who
do really care about what
they're going through."
It's an almost certainty
that the VA will deny a vet's
claim almost immediately.
Then the vet must appeal
the decision to the CAVC.
That's where Javier and the
Veterans Appellate Rights
clinic come in. Located on
Stetson's campus, the clinic
has a charter; to help the
veteran with their appeals
to the CAVC. Although no
real legal advice is given,
they give the veteran the
information and the legal
tools to negotiate the system.
Javier says that he has
learned firsthand and the
experiences of other vets how
traumatic and degrading it is
to try and navigate through
an already overburdened
system. So he helps all he
can. He is in his second year
of volunteering at the clinic.
"The problem is that th.-
system is understaffed
and over-burdened.
Every claim put in is
rated subjectively. One
person might read a
claim of PTSD and
evaluate the claim as
substantiated, while :1
another may deny
it altogether. Two
people can look at the
same claim and get
very different views. If
there is a standard, it's
not applied."
But Javier says that
the VA is making efforts


r ER


A Marine Gives Back


especially for those veterans
with PTSD claims because so
many of them have returned
after seeing major trauma
and terror.
Before, the claims process
involved having to write one
stressorr" factor, detailed
events about being in theatre.
Also required was "proof' of
some sort; a commendation
for bravery, proof of injury or
medal of commendation. The
VA no longer requires this
verification.
Javier knows about how
PTSD works and that makes
him a better counselor and
consultant in the clinic.
"I went to law school because
I wanted to help people like
me who had fought for their
country, who came back home
and then were forgotten. If I
can help one vet get his or
her benefits, then I've done
my job.
He came to Stetson because
of the program.
The clinic is open throughout
the summer and although
Javier gets
credits for his a -


volunteering, he plans on
working there after, as a
volunteer. He has lobbied in
Washington, DC, speaking
beforethe WashingtonHigher
Education Secretariat about
the value vets bring to the
campus and post-secondary
education.
He says that so many vets
don't know what benefits
are even available to them.
The purpose of the clinic is
to teach them what they're
entitled to and help them get
the help they deserve.
"I encourage anyone who has
issues with veteran's claims
to call us or email us. If you
know someone who could use
our help, send them to us."
Javier Centonzio has served
his country with distinction
and honor. He continues that
service by helping others who
served. In doing so, he heals
himself.
And that's an everyday hero
in my book. Semper Fi.

take your pet with you. Leaving your
pet behind, even if you try to create a
safe place for them, is likely to result
in their being injured, lost or worse.
Have a safe place to take your pet.
Evacuation shelters do not accept
pets. Do not wait until disaster
strikes to research alternatives.
Contact hotels/motels, friends,
relatives or boarding facilities
outside your immediate area.
Put together a pet disaster supplies
kit. Your kit shouldinclude two weeks
of medications, medical records and
a first aid kit. Leashes, harnesses
and/or carriers to ensure that your
animals can't escape. Current photos
of your pet in case they get lost.
Food, potable water, bowls, cat litter/
pan and a can opener. Information
on feeding schedules, medical
conditions, behavior problems and
the name and number of your vet in
case you have to board your pets. Pet
beds and toys, if easily transportable.
Make sure your pet has collar and
identification tags.
Know what to do if a disaster
approaches. Often, warnings are
issued hours, even days, in advance.
At the first hint of a disaster, act to
protect your family and pet.

Skyway Golf Carts Brings Environmentally Friendlier

Cars to Gulfport, St. Petersburg, and Beaches

By Cathy Salustri I


A few months ago, we
wrote about Golf Car
Systems and how one
Gulfport resident, Marty
McCormick, sold these
golf cars. Well, after a
few months, he's not only
selling them in Largo,
he's expanded and joined
forces to sell them at
Bargain City, the new-
est indoor shopping coop-
erative (better than a flea
market but not as expen-
sive as a mall) in south
St. Pete by Maximo.
Skyway Golf Carts is a
coming together of Golf
Cart Systems of Clear-
water and AlumaCars of
Sun City, who is a dealer
and can provide street le-
gal vehicles (SLV) upon
request.
With all the focus on
conserving energy, golf
carts make perfect sense,
Marty explains: These
cars won't take you to
Spokane-or even on the
interstate, but they will
take you around town
for very little cash. Since
most of the wear-and-
tear on our cars comes
from stop-and-go traffic
(which is also the biggest
enemy of your fuel econ-
omy), why not park your
car for that trip to the su-
permarket and bank and
get behind the wheel of a
golf car?
New cars can be had
for between $6,000 and
$9,000, depending on
the options you select. If
you'd rather buy used,
you can get one for under
$2,500 and up to $3,999.

You & THE


LAWV"

By Robert J. Myers, Esquire
Why Buy-Sell
Agreements are
Important (Part 1)
If you own a company and have a
partner or partners, have you ever
considered what would happen
should one of you die?
Hopefully, you won't have to face
this situation, but if you do, a buy-
sell agreement can allow for the
continuance of the company as
well as providing financial security
for you, your partnerss, and your
family. A buy-sell agreement not
only protects against the death of
a partner but also provides financial
protection if a partner retires, resigns
or becomes disabled. Let's look at a
situation where there was no buy-
sell agreement in place.
Ms. Smith and Mr. Gonzales are
equal partners of XYZ Services
Company. They have determined
that XYZ is worth $2 million. They




M-


each own $1 million of ABC stock and
they each draw an annual salary of
$150,000.
When Mr. Gonzales died, his stock
worth $1 million will pass to his
estate. However, the stock will pay
no dividends because all earnings
are retained by XYZ. Therefore, Mr.
Gonzales' family will be left with a
non-income producing and illiquid
asset. Mr. Gonzales'only return from
XYZ was his salary which, of course,
ceased upon his death.
The Gonzales family could appeal
to Ms. Smith to pay dividends on
the stock, but why would Ms. Smith
want to pay dividends? Salaries are a
tax-deductible business expense but
dividends are not. Also, dividends
would have to be paid on all
outstanding shares, including those
held by Ms. Smith.
Ms. Smith also has a potential
problem. The Gonzales family holds
half of XYZ's stock--what effect
will this have on the long-term
development plans of the business?
Another problem that the Gonzales
family and Ms. Smith have is how to
determine the value of XYZ stock.
An interest in a closely held company
is often an unmarketable asset and
placing a value on the stock for estate
tax purposes could be difficult. Many

factors affect the fair market value
of a closely held business, including
general business trends, the outlook
for the specific industry, the financial
condition of the company and its
earnings power. While Ms. Smith
and Mr. Gonzales may have felt they
knew the value of XYZ's stock before
Mr. Gonzales died, unless the value
is in a formal agreement the taxation
authorities are likely to get closely
involved in the valuation of XYZ's
stock and try to justify its highest
value.
The valuation of the stock will create
difficulty for the executor of Mr.
Gonzales estate. The executor will
likely want to place the lowest value
on the stock in order to minimize
estate tax liability. However, estate
taxation is not the only concern when
placing a value on a closely held
business. The step-up in cost basis
that is afforded to all capital assets
at death can result in no income tax
being imposed on the sale following
death. This has to be scrutinized
rather closely in light of the estate
tax rate that would be paid if the
value of the business was increased.
If an agreement on the value of
XYZ's stock cannot be reached, the
matter may have to be resolved in
court, wasting considerable time and
money.
A properly designed buy-sell
agreement can help prevent many
of these problems. It can provide
liquidity for the family of the
deceased, ensure the continuance of
the company, and establish the value
of the company's stock.
In our next article, we will explore
together how a buy-sell agreement
between Ms. Smith and Mr. Gonzales
wouldlessen some of the uncertainties
in their business relationship as well
as provide for an orderly transition
of the business upon Mr. Gonzales'
death.

POWERFUL PRAYER TO HOLY SPIRIT -
Holy Spirit, you who solves all problems, who
lights all roads so that I can attain my goal, you
who give me the divine gifts to forgive and for-
get all evil against me and that in all instances
of my life you are with me, I want in this short
prayer to thank you for all things and confirm
once again that I never want to be separated
from you, even in spite of all material illusions.
I wish to be with you, in eternal glory. Thank
you for your mercy toward me an mine.
G.B.
NEVER FAILING PRAYER TO ST. MICHAEL
- St. Michael, the Archangel, Defend Us In
Battle; Be Our Defense Against the Wicked-
ness and Snares of the Devil. May God Re-
buke Him We Humbly Pray; and Do You Oh
Prince of the Heavenly Host, By the Power
of God, Thrust Into Hell Satan and the Other
Evil Spirits Who Prowl About the World For the
Ruin of Souls. Amen. St. Michael, I Resort
to Your Protection and in My Faith, Offer This
Light Which Shall Burn Every Tuesday. Com-
fort Me in My Difficulties and While Lodging in
the House of Our Savior Intercede for Me and
My Family That We Will Be Able to Hold God
Close to Our Hearts and Be Provided for in All
of Our Necessities. I Beseech You, to Have
Infinite Pity in Regard to Favors I ask of You
(Name Them) So That I May Be Able To Over-
come All Difficulties as You Did the Dragons
at Your Feet. Our Father (Say 3 Times). Hail
Mary (Say 3 Times). Glory Be (Say 3 Times).
This Prayer is to be Said 9 Tuesdays, in Suc-
cession and Each Tuesday a Candle Shal
Be Lighted and a Copy of This Prayer Lft in
the Church to Help Another Soul in Distress
and Support the Devotion to St. Michael. This
Miraculous Saint Grants Everything, No Mat-
ter How Difficult, Before the Termination of 9
Tuesday. G.F.
