By Leigh Clifton
The new sign at the Lincoln Cemetery on 58th St. just out of Gulfport received a face-lift, last weekend,
One of St. Pete's oldest cemeteries, Lincoln Cemetery on 58th St. just outside of Gulfport
has gotten a face-lift, thanks in part to Team Depot, the Joshua Lodge 105 and the neighbor-
ing Royal Palms Cemetery. Established in 1926, the cemetery had fallen into major disrepair;
heavy brush was growing along the access road where an old building had stood and the grass
was in desperate need of cutting. The gravestones were broken, See Cemetery page 29

Waves OK'd for Tourist Use At What Cost,

ST. PETE BEACH- No tourist lodging density
changes will be made for a 19-unit condominium
complex in the Upham Beach Village District.
The city staff is working on a method to
establish which other properties are considered
grandfathered, non-conforming uses in that area,
wrote Community Development Director Karl
Holley in his agenda report memo.
"Upon further discussion with the city attor-
ney, we believe that the property can operate in a
grandfathered, non-conforming status for tourist
lodging use; however should not receive the den-
sity allocation since the property is not redevelop-
ing," Holley wrote.
There was some discussion again at the Aug. 10
city commission meeting about the 19-unit Waves
Condominium complex at 600 71st Avenue un-
derwent a conversion in 2004 from an apartment
building to condominium ownership with the con-
dominium declarations saying the units were for
transient use with three-day minimum stays. The
units apparently did not get licensing or zoning at
that time for the short-term use from the city.

Gulfport: Revisited
By Cathy Salustri
Five years ago the Gabber ran an article
about soaring property values in Gulfport.
The article listed six homes in Gulfport
that appreciated an average of roughly
$6500 a month between 2001 and 2005.
Then the real estate bubble burst. Where
it was once impossible to find a home for
under $100,000 in Gulfport, the Gabber's
real estate section now lists Town Shores
condos for under $70,000. Speaking of
those real estate pages, they used take up
10 13 pages in the Gabber. Now?
"We're lucky if we get three or four," Deb
Reichart, the paper's business manager,
So what happened to those properties the
paper looked at five years ago? The Gabber
looked at the same six homes to see if they
had sold again and their current market
value. Two of the six sold once since 2005;
See At What Cost Gulfport, page 15

Team Depot Adopts Local Cemetery

Waves, from front page

Resident Deborah Martohue a
land use attorney and former
commissioner shared concerns about
consistency with the comprehensive
plan. She suggested the commission
ask staff to draft an ordinance on
transient accommodations for the
Upham Beach area. Working it out,
as an ordinance would give the city
a legally defensible position instead
of singling out a particular building,
she said.

Commissioner Marvin Shavlan said
"What (Martohue) says make sense...
lets do it the right way. (I) don't feel
grandfatheringg) is the right way to
get this done. I can't see how it can
hurt to have further discussion."
Commissioner Bev Garnett said
she did not see how this was ever
a legal conforming use and she did
not see how it can be grandfathered.
She said she would like to help and
it would not be the first time a real
estate advertisement misrepresented
something. She encouraged

reevaluating the situation. "Let's do
this in a legal and logical matter,"
Garnett said.
Mayor Mike Finnerty said he did
not think they set a precedent but
were doing what was best for St. Pete
City Attorney Mike Davis said there
are obviously issues, arguments that
can be raised but he did not think the
city was on bad ground legally; it's a
policy issue.

The St. Pete Beach city commission
approved a benefactor plaque
program as a fundraiser for city
parks. The first $2,100 raised will
go to a historical marker at Pass-A-
Grille Park. There will be two plaque
versions- one for private property/
walls and another more durable one
for benches.
People will be able to order the
inscribed plaques through the city
manager's office. The price for the
plaque for private property/walls is
$300 and the bench plaque price has
not been set yet.
"It's a creative way to bring money
into our parks," Commissioner Bev
Garnett said.

St. Pete Beach
Clear of Sunshine
Law Violation

A judge ruled on August 6 that
the city did not violate the Sun-
shine Law during several shade
meetings involving discussions
of settlement and strategy of
ongoing litigation. Judge David
Demers reviewed the meeting
transcripts in his chambers in
response to a lawsuit filed in
June. The city does not have to
turn the meeting transcripts
over to the plaintiff, Bruce Ka-
doura, or publish them until the
litigation is over, Demers wrote.

Proposed Budget
The city commission held a third
budget workshop following its
regular Aug. 10 commission meeting.
The commission plans to present
the budget using the rollback rate
of 2.6718 at its first public budget
hearing in September. The rollback
rate will produce the same amount
of revenue as last year to the city.
The city commission and staff
continued its discussion of the
budget. The budget can still change
at the hearings next month.
* The city plans to open the library
on Monday. Under the proposed
budget the library would be open
48 hours instead of the current 43
hours. This means the library would
be open two evenings until 8 p.m.
The city will replace its bucket
truck, which is used for banners,
flags and tree trimming. The
current truck is 15 years old and the
city plans to purchase the new one
through a three-year lease program.
SThe city commission added
$50,000 to its special events budget
to add an event or events to help
build community.
* Lighted holiday decorations will
not be funded.
* The city commission plans to put
more money into the city's reserve
account. Currently the city has only
about six weeks of reserves and about
three months is the recommended
The city is replacing pavement
markings. They are gradually
striping in areas that have not been
striped in many years.

Complete Evaluation (All 6 Ultrasounds)


Q. How accurate are these heath screenings?
A. Our adherence to stringent protocol, highly trained sonographers, state-of-the-art ultrasound machines, and
board certified interpreting radiologists make the screenings exceedingly accurate. Physician written protocols
ensure consistency and accuracy.
Q. Why should I have these tests if I have no symptoms?
A. It is important to have a screening to identify problems before symptoms arise, potentially avoiding a serious
health crisis. Unfortunately, our body's warning signs often come too late.
Q. Does my doctor do these tests as part of my routine checkup?
A. Most physicians can only prescribe ultrasound tests if you are already having symptoms, not for prevention
reasons. Prevention Plus is here to identify disease before a problem occurs.

No Prescription necessary. These test are not included in routine physical.

www.StrokeTesting.com Ultrasound can find smaller & more
curable cancers, before you have symptoms
Board-certified physician reads all tests and only registered sonographers perform exams.

Legislators Promise $15 Million
for St. Pete Beach Projects
By Melissa Lattman

State Rep. Frishe (left) and State Sen. Dennis Jones (right) gave a
legislative update and answered commissioner questions at the Aug.
10 St. Pete Beach City Commission meeting. Jones said they were
able to preserve $15 million in beach project funding including beach
improvement work in St. Pete Beach.

Because of the oil spill, tax revenue is down an estimated 20
to 30 percent. Good news includes- sales tax and dock tax
revenues were not down in June. The legislature is trying
to evaluate the economic damage from the spill. Frishe said
Florida fared better compared to other states and the state
was lucky the oil did not affect the gulf stream, which could
have affected cruise ships leaving from Florida ports.

At What Cost Gulfport, from front page

both of these homes sold for
more than before. Five of
these homes are worth less
than the purchase price,
according to the Pinellas

County Property Appraiser.
At the suggestion of
local Realtors, the Gabber
included the values of these
homes in 2003.

"I would say we're at 2003
values right now. We've lost
35% from 2006," Realtor
Delia Davidson said.

2003 values, the sale prices
of those homes when the
article appeared in the June
2, 2005 edition of the paper,
and the 2010 market value.
The 2010 market value listed
is the property appraiser's
value for the property plus
15%. The current market
value given by the appraiser
reflects roughly 85% of
what a property would sell
for, but, Davidson said,
depending on the condition
the house could sell for more
or less.
In the chart, we base the
average monthly change
on the sales price used in
the 2005 article and the
current market value plus
15 percent. For the two
homes that sold since 2005,
the first number refers to
the change based on the
property appraiser's figures,
while the second refers to
the change based on the
recent sales price.

your way. But, they are challenged
to tell exactly where and when the
conditions will change. Add your own
observations and you have an extra
edge. The seminar explains weather
system terms, how to understand
clouds and their changes, using
changing wind direction, temperature
and pressure to hone in on emerging
weather fronts. The seminar comes
with a Captain's Quick Guide to keep
on your boat.

ahe Gab.- and aw *

Ken Briggs, South Pasadena:
"Yes, I absolutely do. The Bible says
they exist and I think I'm living proof
that they do because in 1984, I was
crewing for a sailboat in the Grand
Caymans and I took a Zodiac ashore
to go out on the town there. When I
came back to the Zodiac, I was really
drunk and passed out as I started
to row back towards the boat. I got
swept out to sea and spent two and
a half days adrift. I was petrified and
kept praying that someone would
find me. I had no food, no water,
nothing except what I was wearing.
Finally, after being adrift for two and
a half days, the Coast Guard found
me and I firmly believe it was Angels
and Jesus that led them to me. After
all, the raft was grey and the water
blue so it's really a miracle that they
actually found me. What was really
interesting is that my middle name
is Kennedy and the Coast Guard
thought they were actually looking
for Ted Kennedy's nephew. Whatever
the reason, I still think it was Angels
that helped them find me."

Janie McGrew, St. Pete: "I do,
I very much do believe in Angels. I
believe they are God's spirit as well
as being all around us. The scriptures
are full of descriptions of Angels. I
feel they're proof of God's miraculous
power on Earth. I think that's one
of the ways he empowers us for his
guidance. The Angels that surround
us keep us close and protect us. You
can't feel them or see them. It's just
like in the Book of Daniel, when the
three boys were thrown into the fire,
yet they weren't burned, I feel the
Angels kept them safe. It all has to
do with faith; the spiritual world will
manifest itself when you believe."

Justin Ervin, Gulfport: "Yes, I
do believe in Angels because I was
brought up in the church and the
gospel preaches that they exist. My
daughter reminds me every day what
it's like to have to be responsible for
another human being. She makes
me be more responsible, now that I
have someone to love and care for.
I want to teach her to also become
a loving, responsible parent as well;
something I want to hand down to
her. She's my motivation and she
makes me want to be more successful
in everything I do. She is definitely
my Angel in my life."

Jasmine Randles, Gulfport: "Yes, I do because I know that God sent an Angel
to watch over me and I've had experiences that justify my belief. I was in foster
care for a while and I was miserable; I had no direction, no motivation, didn't
care about much. When I found out I was having a baby, my world changed.
My baby Jazlene was my lifting grace; she gave me something to live for, she
motivated me to get a job, I'm now enrolled in St. Pete College and am in the Vet
Tech program there. I'm really happy and doing well. My own mother is still on
the streets and I see her sometimes. It's really hard when I see her, but then I
look at my beautiful daughter and it makes me that much stronger. It makes me
realize that I do NOT want to do to my daughter what my mother did to me. I
wouldn't want my child to feel the hurt that I felt. That's why I truly believe my
daughter is an Angel sent to me."

ItStoroscoDe Guide

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Your dreams
will be vivid this week, though you'll
still forget most of them. What comes
back to you will be but a curious
glimpse into that nocturnal world.
Ponder the meaning and you'll agree
with the poet Edgar Allan Poe about
the illusory nature of this existence:
"All that we see or seem is but a
dream within a dream."
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). There
are those you'll have trouble
communicating with, and you might
be tempted to consider this your
problem. But you're only half to
blame. Communication is a joint
effort, requiring participation from
both parties. The good news is that
your life improves markedly once you
solve this communication issue.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Turn out
the lights, and you'll quickly realize
the truth about your eyes. They don't
see objects, only the light reflecting
off of objects. Similarly, it's not your
experiences that really count so much
as your interpretation of experiences.
You'll make an effort to see things as
shiny and new this week, and soon
it's second nature.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). This
is no time for asking "how," and
asking "why" is even worse. Dwell
instead on the luscious emotions you
want to feel -- the euphoria of having
crossed the finish line. Conjure up
the good vibes, and stay there as long
as possible. Life starts figuring out
the howss." As for the "whys," they
are not yours to know.
21). You have practiced a skill well.
You'll have moments of mastery
this week. From here, you can give
up the struggle without giving up
the fight -- and that's exactly what
you will do. The battle is over, but
the challenges keep coming. You
handle each one from a powerful,
detached, unemotional place.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19).
There's an old English saying that's
perfect for you this week, oh, ye sea
goat of the zodiac! "If you don't tell
people where your goat is tied up,
then they can't get your goat." You'll
keep your emotions under wraps.
You'll find tricks to keep yourself
calm, steady and clearheaded --
therefore, powerful in your life.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18).
There are times when being a control
freak is the best way. For instance,
this week: It's your name on the
line, and you are in fact the one who
stands to lose or gain the most in the
end. Besides, it will be a joy to revel
in the details. You will love getting
your hands into every aspect of your
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Take
all the shouldd" off of your list. Be
OK with the fact that there are some
things you just don't feel like doing.
You don't want to -- that's reason
enough. For you to make an endeavor
a priority, it will have to be exciting
enough to ignite a fire in your belly.
You'll know immediately. You won't
be able to not do it.
ARIES (March 21-April 19).
Someone dear has the wrong
attitude. You can work with this,
though. Through gentle persuasion
and your stellar example, you will
move a loved one from one set of
beliefs to an entirely different set of
beliefs -- perhaps even an opposing
set of beliefs. And this you'll do with
great skill.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20).
You will take on new horizons and
be clever and innovative in your
approach. And though you initially
believe you can do everything in a
new way, it will serve you to learn
the old way first. Then you'll know
the obstacles -- which ones you can
skip over and which ones you will
have to go around.


the Gabr. vr husa ic 98

GEMINI I.iy 21-June 21). In at
least one area of your life, you are
now doing the very thing you wanted
to do years ago. This is, in part, the
vision you had for yourself. Let this
be a joyful realization. Revel in this
success. Throw a party. You are a
powerful creator, and you can take
that vote of confidence into your next
big adventure.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). You
just need to vent. Friends and family
will hear you -- but only for a time.
And you could eventually regret
spilling your guts to them. But if you
turn to a journal instead, you can
rant on for as long as you like. Plus,
you'll work out a few key details and
in the process unlock the secret to
improving your circumstances.
This Week's Birthdays: You'll
make good things happen to you.
Since you're wide awake, you'll seize
the opportunities that come along
in the next four weeks. You either
have what people want or you are
in close enough proximity to grab it,
package it, sell it and turn a profit.
You'll be making friends while you
make money. Family bonds are
strengthened as you embark on a
quest together in October. There's
a family addition in December. A
mentor coaches you on to greater
accomplishments in February.

Cemetery, from front page

Members of Home Depot's leam Depot and the Joshua Lodge 105 stand together to help
clean up Lincoln Cemetery

doubled over or hardly visible because of trash, beer cans and broken furniture
strewn about. Home Depot's Team Depot, a volunteer collection of Home Depot
employees, adopted the cemetery as a community service project.
Said Denise Moore, Home Depot Store Manager for the Pinellas Park store;
"We had almost 40 people out here today, in this heat, to start the cleanup of
this cemetery. It was a real mess. We read about it in the paper and thought
it was a great project to begin because they really needed some help with the
One of the first projects was to get the lawn mowed and remove the huge
pile of old brush that had accumulated around the remains of an old building.
There is no turn-around on the old dirt road that leads to the back of the cem-
etery; the owner might now put in a turn-around where the old building stood,
now that the brush had been cleared.
"That was a real mess!" said Pinellas Park Home Depot Assistant Manager
Jim Daigle. "One of our guys, Rick Ely, lives near here. He saw an article in
the St. Pete Times, called the owner, Sarlie McKinnon and offered to help. We
started at 6:30 this morning, trying to beat the heat."
Waste Management donated the use of a dumpster, even coming to take the
full one and replace it with an empty.
The Joshua Lodge 105 also got involved; they had sent volunteers as well to
help out with the effort. But until Team Depot got involved, little was able to
be done. There was just too much to do.
Rick Ely made the new sign for the cemetery, which hasn't had a sign on it
for at least 8 years. He also fitted it with solar lights so it could be seen after
Denise Moore said that even as they were cleaning up, mourners came to try
and find family graves.
"We helped some of them dig through the overgrowth and find their relatives;
they were really grateful and thanked us," she said, leaning up against a grill
in the back of a truck. They had brought water and food for the volunteers.
Moore said that Team Depot will try and get out to the cemetery at least once
a month, if possible. Moore said that giving back to the community is one of the
core values of her company.
"It's a great service for the community and it makes us feel good that we've
helped someone and made a difference," she said.

Ground Zero and
a Mosque
Whether anyone likes it or not,
a 13 story mosque will be
built 600 feet from ground
zero in New York City. Legally, it is
not a project that could be stopped.
We do have religious freedom in this
country and Mayor Bloomberg is quite
correct in that, if totally wrong about
its purpose and impact. Mosques
could (none have been proposed) also
be built near the Pentagon where
the second plane carrying jihadist
Muslims hit, or at Shanksville, Pa.
where the final jet went down.
It is not a matter of having a right;
it is a matter of being right. As one
commentator noted, "just because
you have a right doesn't mean it is
right." So, the $100 million mosque
(it is appropriate to ask where the
money comes from), will probably be
built. Technically, it is known as the
Cordoba Initiative, named after the
famed The Great Mosque of Cordoba,
That Mosque, originally the
foundation of a Catholic Church, was
built after 600 AD and finished in 784
after the Islamic conquest of Spain.
It was the focus of that conquest. It
was reconverted to a Catholic Church
in 1236 after the re-conquest and is
truly a magnificent building and a
World Heritage site.

Catholics don't allow Muslims
to worship there and it remains a
controversial center. Catholics, in
the re-conquest of Spain were not
kind to the Muslims and abhorred
the Jews. Think Inquisition. Then,
again, Christians and Jews were not
exactly first class citizens during the
time of the first conquest. Religions
in general have not been kind to each
So, while for some, The Great
Mosque is a symbol of multi-cultural
getting-alongness, for others it is
controversial symbol of conquest
and re-conquest. Imam Feisal Abdul
Rauf has declared that the New York
mosque is a tribute to those slain in
the collapse of the Twin Towers and
that its purpose is to salve the wounds.
He had declared that his members
are the anti-terrorist Muslims and
should be embraced.
Even accepting him at his
word, constructing the mosque
is an insensitive move and has
already caused more division than
togetherness. The majority of
Americans perceive it as an "in your
face" move, whatever the intent. As
is often observed, perception is often
the reality. Others, such as a writer at
Time magazine, implied that it's only
the business of New Yorkers. That,
too, ignores the perceived reality that
9/11 at the Twin Towers belongs to all
of us.

Indeed, attacks on America by
There was the 1994 bombing of the
Twin Towers, the thwarted attack
on Los Angeles International Airport
in 2000, the attempt to blow up JFK
airport, the killing of soldiers at Ft.
Hood, and the recent attempt at
detonating a bomb in Times Square,
to name just a few.
Because of these incidents, critics
of the opposition to the mosque
claim that Americans are reacting
in irrational fear to the mosque.
That's nonsense, there's no fear, only
outrage. Muslims have as much to
fear from other Muslims as American
Jews and Christians. Extremists are
blowing other Muslims up in Iraq,
Afghanistan, Pakistan, Gaza, Egypt
and so forth. Of course, they target
everyone else, too.
In most Muslim countries,
proselytizing for any other religion is
punishable by death. Christians are
being hounded in many countries
including so-called "moderate"
Islamic countries. And, death threats
come to any who criticize, oppose,
or mock Islam, or even attempt to
depict Mohammed's face in a cartoon
or otherwise. These situations are
outrageous and should be opposed.
The consequent reaction to the
Cordoba Initiative has been outrage.
One radio commentator (not
Limbaugh) proposed constructing
a pork barbeque on one side and
a Hooters on the other side of the
mosque. Others have suggested
competing religious buildings and
open proselytizing on the streets,
or even signs with Mohammed's
visage. On the other hand, Christian
churches have preached tolerance
and in the name of Jesus to "love thy
Whatever the final outcome and
reaction to the mosque I sincerely
doubt that it will bring people
together at this point a 13 story
building in the name of one religion,
the one responsible for 9/11, will
not be a symbol of love. Symbols
are powerful. If the purpose was to
bring all people together, building a
mosque is not the way.

Gulfport Centennial Countdown Continues!

0 Week Co ntdon te 10 ea
100 Week Countdown to 100 Years!

"Davis Boulevard Looking Toward the Bay" it says on the bottom
of this old postcard. When did Davis become Beach, and who were
Hildebrand and Ober? Answer next week.

In just 9 weeks, Gulfport will
celebrate the centennial of its
incorporation, October 12, 1910. We'll
be reminding you every week with an
interesting old photograph from the
collection of the Historical Museum. See
if you can identify the people, places, and
above all the decade of each picture as it
comes along. To make it a little bit of a
challenge, we won't publish the correct
caption until the following week.
The "Fishermen's Paradise" sign shown

end of the new Gulfport pier almost as
soon as it was completed in 1937. It was
still there in 1942 when this picture of
the Hickman and Wiltshire families was

of Mexico," in use then as today.

Get Global and Host an
International Student
Foreign high school students are
scheduled to arrive soon for academic
semester and year homestay
programs, and the sponsoring
organization needs a few more local
host families. The students are
anxiously awaiting news of their new
families. This is the last chance for
these young ambassadors to fulfill
their life-long dreams.
According to Pacific Intercultural
Exchange (P.I.E.) President, John
Doty, the students are all between
the ages of 15 and 18 years, are
English-speaking, have their own
spending money, carry accident and
health insurance, and are anxious to
share their cultural experiences with
their new American families. P.I.E.
currently has programs to match
almost every family's needs, ranging
in length from one semester to a full
academic year, where the students
attend local public and private high
P.I.E. area representatives match
students with host families by
finding common interests and
lifestyles through an informal
in-home meeting. Prospective host
families are able to review student
applications and select the perfect
match. As there are no "typical" host
families, P.I.E. can fit a student into
just about any situation, whether it
is a single parent, a childless couple,
a retired couple or a large family.
Families who host for P.I.E. are also
eligible to claim a monthly charitable
contribution deduction on their
itemized tax returns for each month
they host a sponsored student.
Families interested in learning
more about student exchange or
arranging for a meeting with a
community representative may call
P.I.E., toll-free, at 1-866-546-1402.
The agency also has travel/study
program opportunities available for
American high school students as
well as possibilities for community
volunteers to assist and work with
area host families, students and

Gulfport Casino Hosts its First Bridal Show

Sa quest for the perfect
wedding day. Gail
Kelley, the Casino s
Event Supervisor,
was very pleased with
A s both the quality of the
vendors and the turn-
Vendor Brenda Griffin (left) and bride to be Alisha Duchem out of guests. This was
look at painted stemware for possible bride's maids the Casino's first bridal
gifts. Although still in college, Alisha is getting married h
September 26th; her fiance will be leaving for Army Basis sh
Training in November and they wanted to get married "Since the economy
before he leaves. has slowed down, the
wedding business has
slowed as well. A lot of people don't even know we're (the casino) here or
that we offer some really wonderful accommodations for both weddings and
receptions. The Casino is a really beautiful facility; we have capacity for up to
400 guests, a catering/ serving kitchen and a fully stocked bar, all right here,"
Kelly said.
Kelly said that many venues don't have a back-up plan when planning a
wedding or reception.
"Here is where we excel," she said. "If the wedding is on the beach and it
rains, we can move it inside with little trouble. When we set up our tables, we
can create a center aisle that the bride and groom can walk down."
Erica Nichols, a stunning model, was walking the room in her wedding
dress. She had just gotten married herself on June 17th and was happy to
recommend the Casino and grounds.
"I live in Riverview and we came all the way down to Gulfport to get married.
I didn't even know this was here! A friend of mine told me about it; the Casino
was so awesome andhad so much room. I lookedit up online andlike the photos.
It was also really fairly priced. I fell in love with the vintage chandeliers, the
hardwood floors and the waterfront view with the beach and sailboats out on
the bay. Gail Kelley made sure everything was magnificent!"
Future bride Alisha Duchem was in a heavy discussion with Brenda Griffin,
whose custom- painted glassware is often given as a brides-maid gift. Although
still in college, she was planning a wedding for September 26th; her fiance just
found out that he leaves for Basic Training in November. They want to get
married before he leaves.
Several caterers displayed elaborate spreads of food, fountains and fantasy.
They were invited by Kelley, because they have catered at the Casino before.
But unlike other venues, who will only allow certain preferred caterers, Kelley
does not dictate who can cater an affair, although she has several caterers
that she has trusted in the past and is quick to recommend them if a client is
not sure.
Gail Kelley thinks there will be more wedding bookings as people hear more
and more about what wonderful things Gulfport has to offer.

Doggie Paws Rescue
Needs Volunteers
Florida Doggie Paws Rescue, Inc. is
an all-volunteer foster-based organi-
zation. This grass roots rescue orga-
nization was formed one year ago by
seven dedicated people with one com-
mon goal: to save the dogs. The
group's mission is to responsibly res-
cue, rehabilitate, foster and find per-
manent loving homes for unwanted,
abandoned and abused small-to-me-
dium breed dogs throughout the state
of Florida.
The Rescue was established at the
end of January 2007 and by the end
of December, over 130 dogs had been
rescued, and over 100 of them had
been placed in their "forever homes".
Most of the dogs came from Levy
County Animal Services where ani-
mals are euthanized after only six
days if someone doesn't come to their
aid. All of these rescued animals have
turned into happy, healthy, well-ad-
justed dogs because of the love, care
and commitment of the volunteers of
Florida Doggie Paws Rescue.
The Rescue promotes the realities of
pet ownership, educating the public
concerning pet overpopulation and
the importance of spaying and neu-
tering pets; humane treatment of
animals through education and pub-
lic awareness; and microchipping
pets so that a lost pet can be reunited
with its family.
Volunteers are always needed to ac-
complish the Rescue's mission. Foster
homes for the dogs are an essential
part of the Rescue. In addition, there
are many other tasks to be completed
- computer work, phone calls, event
planning, fundraising, correspon-
dence, etc. All donations received go
toward expenses for the medical care
of the dogs and for keeping the web
site, post office box and telephone

Totch Lived Here: A Florida-phile's Graceland

By Cathy Salustri

Florida has her own heros. Like so
much of the state, they're different.
Where the rest of the world sees back-
woods hicks, we see men and women
who settled the frontier, battling ga-
tors, mosquitoes, and progress. We
see Florida's founding fathers.

W H O ,Born in Chokolos-
VV .kee in 1920, Loren
"Totch" Brown was a frontiersman,
Florida-style. He lived off the waters
flowing past Chokoloskee and Ever-
glades City, two tiny islands on the
edge of the Everglades, nestled in the
Ten Thousand Islands.
Sometimes Totch fished and
sometimes he ran drugs, poached
gator, and sold egret plumes. Inside
the law and out, Totch took care of
his kin. He did time for running drugs
in the Everglades but came home a
hero. He is Florida's Paul Bunyan.
Totch's descendants- and you get the
feeling that both islands are peopled
almost exclusively by Browns- owns
and operates Totch's Island Tours,
which consists of a fleet of purple
airboats that seat six passengers and
a boat captain who is likely related to
the man himself.

I TTI A r~f -Propped up on

coasters, but for those of you seek-
ing real Florida, this is Graceland.
It doesn't get any more real than
swamps, mangroves, and backwoods
adventures. Hop on an airboat and
see Chokoloskee Bay, Totch's island,
and an elaborate maze of mangroves
deep in the swampy jungle.
To complete your Totch Brown expe-
rience, grab lunch at the Seafood De-
pot, and old train depot that loaded
boats with grapefruit and sent them
off to Key West. Now it loads diners
with frogs legs, fish, and a spectacu-
lar all-you-can-eat shrimp and salad
bar for $9. It is, like most everything
on the island, run by Totch's kin.

1 I ,There's something
S .about flying over
the water through mangrove tunnels
and flying between oyster beds at
low tide that makes an airboat ride a
thousand times better than any thrill
ride at a theme park. These boats
aren't on a track, and the sound of
the engine- even with the supplied
ear protection- thrums through you
as the captain pilots the boat around
every twist in the swampy maze of
mangroves and gators.

WAlHl day, every
W H N .day, although
reservations will minimize the wait.

before the first small bridge, take the
dirt road to the right and go until you
see the sign for Totch Airboat Rides.

SB E T part: You get to see
S J. the island where
Totch spent the last years of his life.
This island, nothing more than a
spoil of mangroves with a shack in
the middle, was where Totch retreat-
ed after his wife died. A hurricane
flooded the shack; he was redoing the
floors and died, as he wished, with a
hammer in hand.

Attorney Keith Sanders,
Handles Bankruptcies with Experience and Sensitivity

you could say my
motto is 'been
there, done that',"
says Keith Sanders, from
Sanders Law, P.A.
He says that for two
reasons. First, he says
his more than 18 years
of experience as an at-
torney specializing in
handling "literally thou-
sands" of bankrupt-
cies means that he has
dealt with virtually any
kind of problem or issue
that might arise with
them. And, secondly,
he had to file a Chapter
13 bankruptcy himself a
few years ago. He says
that experience makes
him very sensitive to the
kinds of things people
face when making the
difficult decision to file.
"Most attorneys have
never been in a situa-
tion where they have
been worried about how
to keep the lights on, but
I have been there myself
so I can really relate to
what people are going
through," said Sanders.
"Plus, many people are
very embarrassed when
they come to me, but
when I tell them how
embarrassing it was for
me to have to stand in
front of judges and col-
leagues who knew me
and go through the pro-
cess myself, that usu-
ally helps to put people

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

pers concerning bank-
ruptcy law in general,

You & THE


What to Expect in a
Divorce Proceeding
(Part 2)
Child Custody/Visitation and
Child custody can be given
exclusively to one spouse, or you can
share joint custody. In most cases,
one parent has sole custody and the
children live with that parent. The
other parent usually has visitation
rights and takes the children on
weekends, holidays, or vacations. In
certain circumstances, the parties
may agree or the court may orderjoint
physical custody where the children
spend time living with both parents
on a regular basis. Frequently,
spouses share responsibility for
important decisions affecting their
children, such as choosing schools
and medical treatment.

If you are unable to agree on
custody, the court will award it
based on considerations such as
parental fitness, the preferences of
the children, and their age and sex.
A party who later wants a change in
custody must show that conditions
have changed and that a new
arrangement is in the best interest
of the children.
Spousal support is called alimony
or maintenance. Either you or your
spouse may be entitled to spousal
support depending on your income
and property, your standard of
living, your financial needs, and
the circumstances leading to the
divorce. If you and your spouse are
unable to agree on support, a judge
will decide who should pay it, how
much is to be paid, and how long it
will continue. The judge may award
spousal support until the receiving
spouse is self supporting or until
death or remarriage of the receiving
You and your spouse are both
responsible for the support of your
children. If you cannot agree on
the proportion of support between

you, the Court will apportion the
responsibility based on custody,
your incomes, financial resources
and other obligations.
In some cases, you and your spouse
may go back to Court in later years
to ask the judge to increase or reduce
spousal or child support. However,
you must be able to show that there
has been a change in financial
resources or need.
