Gay Bar? No Way, Says Gulfport's Gay C
By Cathy Salustri promises "Tampa Bay "WE ARE THE


One new business-
man is touting
Gulfport's beach as
the sexiest gay beach
in Tampa Bay.
The Dive Bar and
Grill's web site,
DiveBarandGrill.com,


finally gets its own
gay beach! We're right
in the heart of it!"
MyGayWeb.com
invites patrons to
come see "all the sexy
bodies tanning" on
Gulfport beach by the
Dive Bar and Grill.


PROUD NEW HOME
OF TAMPA BAYS
GAY BEACH!" the
Dive Bar and Grill's
listing reads on the
gay-themed web
site. The restaurant,
slated to open Labor
Day weekend, will fill


community
the spot of the former
AquaBellas, which
replaced the Mexican
restaurant Casa
Cortez. Most recently,
Roman Gardens
served food in the big
yellow building.
Now Steve Donahue,
the owner of G. Bar,
a gay nightclub in
Ybor City, plans to
open the Dive Bar
and Lounge in the big
yellow building. He
and Ernie Webb are
listed on a pending
occupational license
with the city of
Gulfport.

Sunshine Beach Renourishment


rnoto Dy iviellssa Lauman
Beach nourishment is in progress at Sunshine Beach in Treasure Island. Parts of the beach are still open to
the public. About 55,000 cubic yards of sand has been pumped to Sunshine Beach. There is about a week
of work left on Sunshine beach according to the August 18 activity update report. Currently nourishment of
Sunset Beach is set for September and St. Pete Beach's Upham Beach is slated for October. For regular

Police Chief Hosts Crime Meeting
in Gulfport's Marina District
Gulfport Police Chief Rob Vincent will be hosting a community
meeting on Monday, August 30 at 6:30 pm at the Gulfport Lions
Club located at 4630 Tifton Dr. South, for residents in Gulfport's
marina district. Some have expressed concerns about the appearance
of increased crime in the area east of 49th Street and south of 26th
Avenue, and Chief Vincent would like to get input from residents on
how police resources might best be used to address these concerns.
This is your opportunity to learn something new, meet your
neighbors, and tell the chief what's on your mind.








Gay Bar, from front page
gay or bisexual object to a nightclub
that caters only to gay people opening
in Gulfport.
"We're all thrilled to have a gay-
ownedestablishment- that'sfabulous.
What everybody's not liking is that
it's sounding so exclusive," local Faun
Weaver said."That's not Gulfport; we
have gay-owned establishments but
they've always been inclusive."
One man, who asked that we identify
him only as Joe, said that he didn't


appreciate the need for exclusivity.
"Gulfport's such a diverse
community. Every place in Gulfport
is very gay accepting; why do we
need to advertise it and put off the
straight people and everybody else?
Limiting it to one community is not
going to work in Gulfport. (Compare
it to) Georgie's Alibi downtown... no
place there do they announce that it's
a gay place and they get a wide range
of people from all places."
Not all gay people oppose the bar,
though.

"Sometimes in the gay community
it seems like things are so political
in Gulfport," Beau Cotner said. "I
don't see how it can be anything
but a positive, really. If it weren't
for exclusively gay bars, gay people
would never have made the advances
that we have. I hear they're going for
a specific community, which is fine.
It's a free enterprise system."
Regardless of the intended clientele,
the city of Gulfport may have issues
with the business. The city has yet to
grant a license for a restaurant.
MyGayWeb.com also lists "Dancers/
Strippers" as a feature of the soon-to-
open Dive Bar and Grill. The MySpace
page for G. Bar sandwiches ads for
the new Dive Club Bar and Grill
between ads for G. Bar, including
"amateur strip contests" and "male
sexy underwear contests."
"Anything beyond (a restaurant)
we need to discuss," Myra Schwarz,
Gulfport City Planner said. "I am
aware of the applicant's history; they
have assured us that's not what their
intent was. We have no reason at this
point to deny it; all the information
they have given us is for an allowed
use," she said last week in a telephone
interview.
The web site for the G. Bar
Restaurant and Grill boasts a front
shot of a man's lower torso, clad in
a blue bikini swimsuit, as well as
another shot of the backside of a man
in a bikini.
The city is discussing the
advertisements with the owners, Ms.
Schwarz said.
"It has to be a restaurant first,
bar second," she said, saying the
owners assured her the Dive Bar
and Grill would be a restaurant first.
Community Development Director
Fred Metcalf said that the city
couldn't shut down a business before
it violated the city code, likening it
to ticketing a driver for speeding
because they drove a Maserati.
"We have to protect the Gulfport
public from anything that is not
within code, but we also have to
protect the business owner's right to
operate. We're in the middle of that
right now," Ms. Schwarz said.
The restaurant plans to open Labor
Day Weekend with a Bacardi Beach
Bash, according to its web site.
Mr. Donahue did not respond to an
e-mail from the Gabber requesting an
interview.

St. Pete Beach Fixes
Sunshine Violation
To fix a technical violation to the
Sunshine Law the Planning Board
discussed at its regular Aug. 17
meeting comments on the Traditional
Hotel District, which circulated via
email. A few people apparently hit
reply all with their comments to
an e-mail providing a summary of
joint planning and historic board
discussions on the THD.
City Attorney Mike Davis said
they would have a cure hearing,
which they did at the planning board
meeting, to discuss in public the items
mentioned in the e-mails since they
went to multiple board members.
Items discussed included the process
of registering traditional hotel
district properties. They discussed
when to register the properties and
the level of detail needed. They
decided extensive details would not
be needed from property owners by
the end of the year.






SThe Ocean Begins In Your Neighborhood
How SO?? Water running off your yard, sidewalk or street flows
Down gutters to curbside opening called catch basins.
From there, this runoff flows into the storm drain system, a vast
underground network of pipes and tunnels. Anything carried by
this runoff pesticides, oil and anti-freeze from leaky cars, pet
waste, foam containers and plastic bags is not only unhealthful to
our neighborhoods, but ends up trashing the beaches, polluting the
ocean and harming marine life ... and us!!
Even in the hottest day in Florida, we produce tens of millions of gallons of
runoff, the result of car washing, over watering of lawns and yard cleanup!!

So What Can You Do?

Properly use and store all hazardous household products, including cleaners, solvents and paints.

Be an environmentally aware consumer. Buy non-toxic products for use in your home and garden
whenever possible.

Use pesticides, herbicides and fertilizers carefully and sparingly.

SConserve water and reduce the amount of runoff by not over-watering your lawn and garden.

Use a broom rather than a hose to clean up garden clippings, dirt and litter from sidewalks, patios
and driveways.

Divert rain spouts and other sources of runoff onto grass or vegetation.

S Dispose of pet waste in trash cans. Leaving it on the lawn sends harmful bacteria into the storm
drains whenever you water or when it rains.

a Wash your car with biodegradable soap using as little water as possible. Shut off the hose while
Swashing your car and then rinse.

Keep up car maintenance to reduce leakage of oil, antifreeze and other fluids.

ILLEGAL DUMPING DEBRIS OR HAZARDOUS MATERIALS
INTO OUR DRAINS IS BREAKING THE LAW.
It is also not only an eye-sore for your neighborhood but creates unhealthful
conditions that cause odors and can spread disease.
If you witness illegal dumping of materials you can contact the City of Gulf-
port Code Enforcement at 893-1061 or you can contact the Pinellas County
Department of Environmental Management automated watch-line
at (727) 464-5060. LETS KEEP GULFPORT BEAUTIFUL!!!

Gulfport Budget Proposal- No Tax Increase


By Cathy Salustri

For the second year in a row, Gulfport
city manager Jim O'Reilly submitted
a balanced budget without sacrificing
city services. Gulfport tax payers will
not have a city tax increase this year
and will remain the same as last year
at 3.4742 mills. Adjustments to the
budget include almost $50,000 in
unexpected revenues
Property values went down less
than expected, decreasing 9.7%
instead of the projected rate of over
10%.
The city will receive over $5,000
more revenue from the Pinellas
Library Co-Op.
* The city will receive an additional
$23,000 from the Pinellas County
School Board for its work at Boca
Ciega High School.
The city will put this overage
towards the pension fund.
However, property values in the
Waterfront Redevelopment Areawent
down more than expected, resulting
in a loss of over $12,000 for the city.
The city will have to use money in the

Monthly GOLD
The first monthly Gulfport Organic
Landscaping Days (GOLD) is
Saturday,August 28 from 10 a.m.
to 12 noon. These days are a chance
for inexperienced and experienced
gardeners to visit organic landscapes
in Gulfport, offer free plant and
seed exchanges, and help each other
create beautiful landscapes. The first
meeting will be at Bryan Hilbert's
Organic Garden Co-op, 2526 54
Street S. We will watch clips from
a documentary about Permaculture
(permanent agriculture) and
learn why it is needed for healthy
communities worldwide and how it
has been done.


Waterfront Redevelopment Fund to
complete the scheduled work in the
Waterfront Redevelopment Area.
The city had to reduce the amount of
health insurance it pays for employee
dependants. They did this to account
for rising premiums; by not paying
for any of the employees' dependant
healthcare coverage the city kept
health insurance rates constant and
also saw a slight insurance premium
reduction for the city. Mr. O'Reilly
said that this change affected 1/3 of


the city's 120 full-time employees.
The city will vote on the proposed
budget at a Special Council meeting at
7 p.m. on September 9.

City Council Workshop
The City of Gulfport will hold a City
Council Workshop today, August
26, at 3:30 p.m. All meetings are
open to the public and are held in
City Hall Council Chambers, 2401
53 Street S.






St. Pete Beach Adds
Redevelopment District
The Planning Board approved at
its Aug. 17 meeting an ordinance
implementing an Eight Avenue
community redevelopment district.
The ordinance, which covers items
such as setbacks, density and
parking requirements, goes to the
city commission next.
The proposed district's goal is to
encourage andpromote continuing the
existing mixed use development and
aesthetics of the area and encourage
filling in vacant and under-developed
lots. The area covers about 20 parcels
by 8th and 9th Avenue between Gulf
Way and Pass-A-Grille Way.

Marina Study Okayed
ST. PETE BEACH- The city commis-
sion approved a marina feasibility
study at its Aug. 24 meeting. Woods
Consulting will complete a marina
permitting feasibility study for the
waters adjacent to the Community
Center at the cost up to $9,160. The
study will consider the permitting is-
sues that will impact the overall site
design and economic viability. The
contract covers determining the max-
imum number of boat slips allowed
by regulatory agencies and prelimi-
nary dock design options.
City Manager Mike Bonfield said
the study would provide an assess-
ment of what's out there, what the
limitations are in terms of easements
and to establish a footprint for a pro-
spective marina.


Beach Goes Pops Report
ST. PETE BEACH- Jay Anderson gave the city commission a report on the
Beach Goes Pops. He thanked the city for its co-sponsorship, which helped
cover orchestra and lighting expenses. About 150 volunteers helped with
the annual spring event in Pass-A-Grille. "Its fun for us to produce this,"
Anderson said. "It's a great venue because of where it's located- the sunset
behind the bands."
The two-day musical event in its 20th year raised $12,505 that went to
several local non-profits including the Gulf Beaches Historical Museum,
the Pass-A-Grille Community Association, Vina Del Mar Island Associa-
tion and AMIKids Pinellas (formerly the Pinellas Marine Institute), An-
derson said.

Waste Water Update
ST. PETE BEACH- City Public
Services Director Steven Hallock
gave an update from an inspection
and testing of waste water pipes
under the water. Divers went in the
water and looked at the pipes every

pipe appears to be in good condition.
They discovered about 63 feet of pipe,
which was installed three feet under
water in the early 1980s, was now
exposed. The city is exploring options
to put a protective cover over the
pipe. They reduced energy costs by
cleaning the lines and have installed
valves to test and clean the lines

2860 22nd Ave. N. I Mention This Ad For
St. Pete., FL. 33713 10% OFF
(Material Only)
































Becky Keesling, Seminole: "I
have mixed feelings; I personally
feel that if some good can come out of
this research, shouldn't we use that
opportunity to help others? Research
is done to help people so I'm 100%
for it if the embryos are donated or
discarded. I was asked after I had
my children if I wanted to save the
umbilical cord blood. I asked my
insurance if they would cover it and
they didn't cover that procedure. It
was also very expensive. If it could
have been covered by insurance,
I would have done it. I work in a
managed care facility and I see
Alzheimer's patients every day. I
know some of the stem cell research
has looked promising for that disease.
So, if it could possibly help people,
why shouldn't we allow it? I think
the pros outweigh the cons. If these
donated or discarded stem cells can
save lives, what can be more moving
than someone giving them for
research to ultimately save lives?"


Dorothy Dulau, St. Pete: "Yes, I
think the research should continue
if the people have given their
permission for the embryos to be
used for it. I just had my son Trevor
nine weeks ago and I was asked at
the hospital if I wanted to keep the
umbilical cord blood. But it was so
expensive; over $1000 I think and
then there was a fee for storage for 18
years at $100 a month. I opted out,
but it was hard because I know that
that blood could possibly help my son
or another family member if they got
sick with a disease. I have no moral
or ethical problem with using the
embryos because they weren't taken
from anybody, they were donated for
research."


Meagan Keck, St. Pete: "I think it
would be one thing if they weren't
donated or discarded, but it's not
like they were taken from someone
illegally. I see no reason to halt the
research if the embryos were already
going to be discarded. I don't think
there is an ethical issue because it's
not a life; I understand that it could
have been but it was discarded after
a doctor found it wasn't usable for
in-vitro. I know that people have
religious or moral beliefs, but if
the research can help people with
diseases, I think it should be allowed
to continue. There's always a reason
to debate these issues, but I see the
research as being very important."
* *


Brittani Loesch, Clearwater: "If the judge didn't have a good reason, then why
would he do that? I think if the stem cell researchers think that it looks promising,
that should overrule any objections from a judge. It should be a person's choice
whether they want their discarded embryos used for research. It's their property,
part of their body and if they want to donate them for scientific research it's their
business. I can't think of a good reason that a federal judge would hold up promising
research that could potentially save so many lives."

The Principals of the Shake- Up at Bogie
By Leigh Clifton
By now, no doubt, most students at Boca Ciega High School and their parents
are aware of the changes mandated by the Pinellas County School Board to
"switch" principals at Bogie and Northeast High. But the real reasons seem
to remain a mystery. Both schools were rated a "D" school last year, according
to the Florida Department of Education. Northeast's current rating is a "C."
In June, the State of Florida mandated the Pinellas County School board to
essentially flip flop principals in four schools; Boca Ciega, Northeast, Dixie
Hollins and Lakewood. Both Dixie Hollins and Lakewood are also rated "D"
with other local high school Gibbs getting an "F" rating.
What makes this so confusing is that Bogie's Principal Paula Nelson was sent
to Northeast, replacing Kevin Hendrick, who was not only extremely popular
with both faculty and students, but was thought to be turning around Northeast
and getting it back on track. In fact, when the changes were announced in
June of this year, the backlash was instant; both students and parents of
Northeast High writing Pinellas County School Board (PCSB) President Dr.
Julie Janssen copious letters in protest. For some inexplicable reason, Kevin
Hendrick was sent to Bogie, then un-sent, finally landing a District position;
Director of High School Education
Meanwhile, over at Bogie and on Paula Nelson's watch, the school was
building brand new, state of the art facilities and a new $400,000 renovation
of the Field House, with new lockers, laundry facility and newly re-surfaced
track. Nelson was very proud of what she had accomplished there. Now she
has good things to say about her new digs, but she admits that the move was
not her choice.
"It wasn't my choice to move to Northeast, but the state felt that with a
different principal, they might improve on the Correct II sanctions put on
Bogie by the state to improve. While I was there, we did make learning gains
but did not make gains in other areas that were necessary. I'll have to learn to
be a Viking," Nelson says with a good-natured laugh. "We were always rivals
before."
Nelson says that Northeast is a good school and that the staff was very
welcoming and wonderful. But she knows that filling the emotional shoes of
Kevin Hendrick will be a bit trickier. He was very well-liked.
The Pinellas County School Board might well re-think some of their moves
however; both Bogie and Northeast still scored below the state average on the
FCATS. For grade 10, Bogie scored a 26% in Reading and a 39% in Math;
Northeast scored 31% in Reading and a 68% in Math. The State of Florida
average standard for Reading was 48% and 67% for Math. So Bogie, as
well as the other four mentioned schools has a long way to go to meet those
standards.
Other moves from Bogie include Athletic Director Heather Holloway, who
moved into the Hillsborough School District and Mr. Charlie Drake who
will assist Nelson at Northeast as Assistant Principal. Baseball coach Jason
Szafarski resigned his position and is now teaching and coaching at Dixie
Hollins.
It remains to be seen whether these changes will affect the performance of
the schools involved and whether or not the Pinellas County School Board was
right or even justified in their decision. Time and FCATS will tell.

ItStoroscoDe Guide


VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). If you
are very great and powerful, you
will be dogged with questions and
requests. People will depend on you
constantly and will be angry if you do
not deliver. It is a huge responsibility,
and even the part that's fun and
games becomes a lot of work. Still,
if you're up to it, you should do it.
You will make a difference.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Unlike
so many celebrities, you have not
offered your life choices up to the
media for scrutiny in exchange for an
indiscriminate amount of attention.
And yet you seem to be very much
in the public eye now, and people
are talking. Make light of the social
commentary. It just means you are
on the "hot" list.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). A new
interest is starting to take up more
of your time than anticipated. Some
would say this is a time waster, but
you're not so sure. There is something
of value to be explored here, though at
this point you would be hard-pressed
to find a scale by which to weigh its
worth. Bottom line: If it makes you
happy, it's good.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec.
21). Your astrological symbol is half
human, half beast. Part of you is wild
and cannot be tamed. If you have to
do what's appropriate every hour of
every day, you will surely rebel. Let
yourself do the inappropriate thing
once in a while (and probably more
often this week) to prevent a major
revolt down the line.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19).
For your plan to come together, you
need the support of someone who has
the knowledge and resources to take
it to the next level. The kind of power
play you want to attract is not so
easy to get to know. Form a strategy.
What would make your project more
appealing? What's in it for the other
guy?


AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). The
one who comes just in time to help
you is a true friend. This may be a
stranger, but the timely support
of this person will join you in an
inexplicable way. You may never see
this person again, but you'll always
have the moment -- the time you
needed assistance and there was
someone to help.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). No
amount of money can make you
immune to the bothersome realities of
mankind. Even billionaires deal with
poor customer service and computer
malfunctions. That's why if you can
flow with events and maintain your
charming, easy-going personality,
you are richer than Midas in all the
ways that count.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). There
are those in your midst who have
already attained what you aspire
to. Everyone goes at his or her own
pace. When you realize this, you
will derive inspiration from your
peers instead of feeling threatened
by them or superior to them. If they
can do it, so can you. You just need to
keep working at it.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Your
thoughtfulness and attentiveness to
others are quite remarkable. You will
make people smile. Wherever you go,
you will bring the perfect weather
with you. When those around you
are hot, you'll be the cool breeze.
When they are cold, you are the sun.
And you'll be the rain when they are
thirsty, too.
GEMINI (iI.Iy 21-June 21). In
some way you feel that you have
to do more than others in order to
gain the same amount of success.
Perhaps you feel you must make up
for a perceived deficit, or maybe you
just use a different scale to measure
things. Whatever the reason, you'll
win far more success because of your
high standards.


CANCER (June 22-July 22). You
may be a tad out of step with your
loved ones. It's nothing personal --
you just see things differently. So
if you happen to be ecstatic about a
decision they find less than pleasing,
don't worry about it. They may never
fully get on board, but by the end of the
week, this won't be such a big deal.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Loyalty is a
quality you strive to uphold through
thick and thin. Sometimes it's easier
to be loyal when things are looking
bleak -- that's when you're really
needed. But when things are crazy-
good, you're needed, too. It's just
harder to see it. A wave of success is
coming. Bond with loved ones so you
can ride it together.
This Week's Birthdays: In the
past, you have skillfully hidden
some of your abilities for various
reasons -- no longer, though. The
world is ready to see all you can do,
and you're ready to deliver on the
promise of your potential. You'll
band together with talented people in
September. A teacher shows you the
ropes in October. You'll put money
in the bank in November. December
brings family time. There will be a
move in the new year or a renovation
to freshen up your environment.
Wedding bells ring in June.

Foreclosure
Fraud Seminar
The fourth and final free workshop
alerting consumers to the perils of
foreclosure fraud, and offering direct
assistance referrals for those who
have either fallen behind in their
mortgage payments, or anticipate
missing payments in the future on
Saturday, September 11 at Largo
Library, 120 Central Park Drive in
Largo. Counselors will be available
from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
With more than 33,000 active
foreclosure cases in the Pinellas-
Pasco court system, foreclosure
fraud has become a real problem
in Pinellas County. Unscrupulous
individuals prey upon those who are
in the process of losing their homes,
promising relief, but providing few
tangible results.
Pinellas County's Department
of Justice and Consumer Services
recently received a $100,000 federal
grant to fight foreclosure fraud. The
grant was provided through the
American Recovery & Reinvestment
Act.
A Foreclosure Fraud Prevention
Team has been formed with the
Department of Justice and Consumer
Services as project coordinator, along
with Pinellas County Community
Development, St. Petersburg
Neighborhood Housing Services,
Tampa Bay Community Development
Corporation, Gulfcoast Legal
Services, the Pinellas-Pasco Area
Agency on Aging and the Community
Law Program.
Homeowners can get more
information by calling the Pinellas
County Department of Justice and
Consumer Services at 727-464-6200.
More information on assistance
provided as a result of the grant
can be found at this website: www.

Excerpts heard at the August 24, 2010

St. Pete Beach City

Commission Meeting

Public Comment


& Council Quotes

"(I) am just trying to get creative and find a way to get Christmas
decorations without paying for it." -Commissioner Marvin Shav-
lan- on the possibility of getting a vendor or business to support funding
holiday lights. The commission discussed that advertising such as a
vendor's logo in the lights, could not be displayed on the state road right
of way. Commissioner Halpern said he heard from people about wanting
Christmas decorations.

"Getting more information in and getting more information out..."
-Vice Mayor Jim Parent on an idea from the Florida League of Cities con-
ference on engaging residents through social media sites such as Twitter,
You Tube and Facebook.

"Seventy more boxes to our courageous troops overseas."
-Mayor Mike Finnerty, on a recent shipment of care packages sent by the
St. Pete Beach Support Our Troops to military personnel serving in Iraq
and Afghanistan.

"It is the hurricane in our backyard and we do have to deal with
...how to fund it, what we do." -Commissioner Bev Garnett, agreeing
with Vice Mayor Parent on the need to talk about city pension plans.
Parent said he watched a recent budget and finance committee meeting
where they were discussing setting up a meeting and inviting pension
board trustees.

"If water transportation is a viable thing (consider) talking about
(service across) Boca Ciega Bay." -Vice Mayor Parent after reading
about proposed water shuttles/ferries between Tampa and St. Peters-
burg, suggested possibly discussing with Gulfport a water shuttle service
between Gulfport and St. Pete Beach.

WESSON, SUZANNE J., July llth
1948 Aug. llth 2010 Suzanne was a
resident of Pass-A-Grille and St. Pete
Beach for forty years. From 1984 to
1995, she owned Suzanne's, a wom-
en's specialty boutique on Gulf Boule-
vard. She was semi-retired until Jan.
1st, 2000, when she opened Paradiso,
on Pass-A-Grille's historic Eighth Av-
enue. She was very active within the
community as a successful business
owner and through the Pass-A-Grille
Woman's Club. She served on the St.
Pete Beach Historic Board, volun-
teered for the Taste of Pass-A-Grille
and the Beach Goes Pops, and was
a member of the Pass-A-Grille Civic
Association and the 8th Avenue Mer-
chant Association. Suzanne served
on many committees after joining
the Woman's Club in 1997-98. They
include Recording Secretary (98-99),
Exterior House and Grounds (99-01),
Special Events (01-02), Community
Welfare (03-05), House and Grounds
(05-07), Hospitality and Programs.
She produced the first fashion show
for the club, and many since then, as
well as for the City of St. Petersburg
throughout the years. She helped
with many of the monthly luncheons,
served in various capacities for the
annual Home Tour (Co-chair, House
Captain, Patron Captain and Pa-
tron Sponsor, Hospitality). This
years Home Tour will be held in her
honor. Suzanne loved the beach and


she loved to travel, with a particular
fondness for the island of Bermuda.
Despite her accomplishments, her
happiest and proudest moments were
with her grandchildren, JR and Pres.
Her closest and dearest friend, Elena
Bussey, would agree that they were
the topic of many of their conversa-
tions. Suzanne was born in P.Ilgh.-i 's
Parrish, Bermuda and moved to Flor-
ida at a young age. She was raised as
an only child, but as an adult sought
to locate a half brother, Ross Frith.
She has since had a very close rela-
tionship with him and his family,
and particularly with her niece Tami
Pesek. Suzanne was a cancer survi-
vor, diagnosed in her thirties. She
was able to overcome the disease,
however, as a result, experienced re-
sidual health complications. Over the
last decade those complications had
become more debilitating. She passed
away on Aug. llth. Suzanne is sur-
vived by her son and daughter-in-
law, Michael and Barbara Metzler;
her grandchildren, Michael Jr. and
Prescott, and many more loved ones
and friends. Her contributions to her
community and her love and commit-
ment to her friends and family will be
greatly missed. In lieu of flowers, do-
nations may be made to the S.P.C.A
of Pinellas in her memory. A memo-
rial service will be held Saturday,
Aug. 21, 10:30 am at Pass-A-Grille

A Middle Finger
to America
ST he mosque at ground zero is
a 13 story middle finger to
.L America. There is time for
forgiving and forgetting. But, now the
wound is as fresh as the cut throats
of the pilots and flight attendants
described here."
"Here" was Shanksville, Pa. where I
posted this message last week on the
wall at the temporary memorial to
Flight 93 which crashedin a rural field
90 miles east of Pittsburgh taking the
lives of 40 innocent passengers and
airplane crew members. A number
of others also posted anti "mosque"
comments.
The flight from Newark to Los
Angeles was hijacked, its pilots and
a flight attendant throats were cut
even as they pleaded for their lives,
the plane turned around and headed
for the U.S. Capitol. It was the fourth
plane to be hijacked on that bright,
clear September 11, 2001 morning.
Two flew into the Twin Towers in New
York City; one into the Pentagon in
Washington, D.C.; and this last was
to be crashed into the U.S. Capitol.


Brave crew members and passengers
thwarted that plan by charging the
hijackers andbreakingintothecockpit.
The Islamist terrorists, crying In
the name of Allah, the most merciful,
the most compassionate and Allah is
the greatest" deliberately crashed the
plane to stop the takeover.
An open microphone in the
cockpit captured shouts, screams,
pleadings, the sounds of scuffling
and a horrifying, "ugh, ugh" whose
source can only be imagined. These
transcripts are at the memorial site
and are included with summaries and
some direct transcripts of phone call
made from passengers to their loved
one as they realized they were on a
death flight.
That 9/11 is still a fresh wound is
shown by the fact that over 1.2 million
people have visited this remote 10
miles of windy, hilly country roads
from the small town of Somerset-
since 2002. According to a National
Park Service Ranger, some one has
visited every day of the year; 55,000
have donated to the permanent
memorial which will be completed
next year; and 35,000 moments of all
sorts were left by visitors to the site.


Somethlan oH my mwind
a By Bill Northrop B_Northrop@theGabber.com


Last week, 700 bikers from across the
country came as part of an annual
ride, that included Washington, D.C.
and New York.
Ground zero is not just a New York
thing, either. It is an American thing.
America was attacked at its financial
and political centers. And, it was
attacked by radical terrorists in the
name of Islam. There were attacks
before and there have been attacks
since.
The Cordoba Initiative, as the
mosque and community center project
is called, has been labeled as a project
of sympathy and reconciliation. It has
been anything but. If reconciliation
and coming together were the goals
of moderate (or rational) Islamists
in this country, wouldn't some
groundwork have been laid in the
past nine years?
The man behind the idea, Iman Feisal
Abdul Rauf, is controversial himself.
He has stated that the attacks were
partly the fault of the U.S. and he has
declined to label Hamas as a terrorist
organization. No one knows where
the money for the mosque is coming
from. Ironically, the Iman, considered
a moderate, is a U.S. paid good-will
envoy to the U.S. He played a similar
role for the Bush administration.
(Strange, Billy Graham, Jr., was not
allowed to pray at the Pentagon).
This is not an issue of freedom of
religion. As stated over and over and
over, the right to build is there, but
it is not necessarily the right thing to
do. I do not care who worships what,
when, where, or how. That's their
business. This mosque idea can be
promoted in any way, but it remains
an in- your-face gesture.
President Obama's reaction has been
to defend the building of the wall as an
item of religious freedom. He refused
to comment on its appropriateness.
Compare this to President Ronald
Reagan's comments about the Berlin
Wall (in East Berlin) as he spoke in
West Berlin at the Branderburg Gate:
"Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall."
Need I point out that Gorbachev,
then the president of the Soviet
Union, and the East Berliners had
every right to keep the Wall in their
own territory? But Reagan knew it
was not right.

Have you got a
question for your
9 city government?

Email your request to News@theGabber.com
By Cathy Salustri
City of Gulfport

Q: What is the difference between the city of Gulfport's laws about golf
cars on the street and the ones in Ozona?

A: According to Gulfport Police Chief Rob Vincent, there are a few key
differences. First, though, he says people should understand the difference
between a golf cart and a low-speed vehicle.
"A low speed vehicle is one that meets all of the vehicle requirements
established by the Department of Transportation (DOT), including lights,
signals, windshield, restraint belts, etc.," Chief Vincent says. This can
include modified golf carts which, like all low-speed vehicles, must get
inspected by and registered with the DOT.
Golf carts, Chief Vincent continues, don't necessarily meet those
requirements and thus can't operate on any public Florida roadways unless
the city or county that has jurisdiction over those roads designates them
for use by golf carts.
Armed with that knowledge, consider this: Ozona isn't a city; it's an
unincorporated Pinellas community. The Pinellas County Board of County
Commissioners sets those rules, and several years ago they designated
Ozona and Crystal Beach as golf cart communities. That ordinance allows
golf carts with headlights, brake lights, tail lights, turn lights, reflectors,
parking brakes, a rearview mirror, a windshield and a standard hip
restraint or hand hold. Drivers must have a valid driver's license and golf
carts can't go faster than 20 miles per hour.
While Gulfport hasn't passed an ordinance like that, it defers to the state
law. However, Chief Vincent says, "It appears that the only difference
between the Ozona ordinance and the state law is the vehicle registration
requirement. All other regulations regarding safety equipment and driver
licenses still apply."
So you can drive a golf cart in Gulfport as long as it has all the equipment
mentioned above. The only difference between what Gulfport allows and
Ozona allows is that Gulfport follows the state law that requires owners to
get their golf cart inspected and registered.
One final thought from Chief Vincent: Gulfport may only allow golf carts
on city roads. That excludes Gulfport Boulevard, 58th Street, and 49th
Street, so "even if Gulfport were to pass its own ordinance, golf carts would
not be allowed to drive on or across these roadways unless also approved
by the board of county commissioners."

LAST WEEK'S ANSWER:
Last week: The Gulfport Water Tower
was a landmark for over 60 years.
Located in the city hall complex, the
tower was about 160 feet high and had a
75,000 gallon capacity. Built in 1927, it
was taken down in 1988, having become
dangerously rusted. It had not been in
use since the city started buying water
from St. Petersburg.

You & THE


LAWV

What to Expect in a
Divorce Proceeding
(Part 3)
A Court may find it necessary to
award alimony or spousal support in
many dissolution of marriage cases.
As with child support, the Court will
consider two factors: one party's
need and the other's ability to pay.
Both of these factors must be proven
in Court by the requesting spouse if
the husband and wife cannot reach
an agreement on their own. Alimony
may be awarded to either a husband
or wife and, depending on the length
of the marriage and other factors,
the alimony may be permanent or for
only a short duration of time.
Under Florida law, the Court
must try to make an "equitable"
distribution" of marital property


and debts. "Equitable" does not
always mean equal, although that
is the starting point. Many factors,
including child support, custody
and alimony awards, can cause the
Court to make an unequal (but still
equitable) division of property. A
Court will not generally divide the
property and debts that arise outside
the marriage.
If needed, the Court can order
you or your spouse to do, or not do,
certain things. The Court may order
a party not to telephone the other,
not to come to the other's place of
business and not to interfere in the
other spouse's activities.
The Court can order one party to
pay some or all of the other party's
attorney's fees. A Court does this to
assure that both parties have equal
access to competent counsel. The
Court does not award legal fees in
every dissolution of marriage case.
The Court must first find that one
party has a greater ability to pay
than the other.
Even if there is an indication that
one party has a greater ability to
pay legal fees than the other party,


you cannot be certain the Court will
award the payment of legal fees in
behalf of the party who does not have
an equivalent ability to pay legal
fees. For this reason, and because
of the great drain that legal fees can
have on marital assets, everyone
(parties and attorneys alike) should
make every effort to resolve a divorce
case as economically and amicably as
possible.

Attorney Keith Sanders,
Handles Bankruptcies with Experience and Sensitivity


Y ou 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-
SELF."
"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
Georgia.
"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,
ECF requirements and
new issues. He is a
former director of the
Bankruptcy Section of
the State Bar of Geor-
gia.
The firm also handles
Short Sale negotiations,
defense against foreclo-
sures, wills & trusts,
civil litigation and loan
modification
Outside of the court-
room, Sanders lives in
an unusual home in
Gulfport that was one
of the featured proper-
ties in a recent Pink Fla-
mingo Tour of Homes. It
has a tree growing right
up through the floor and
up through the ceiling of
his kitchen. He has five
dogs and a cat.

Kathleen's Alterations


By Cathy Salustri
For over 30 years, Kathleen Mat-
tea has breathed new life into old
clothes. She is the "clothes whis-
perer," re-cutting dresses, tailor-
ing suits, and creating fresh new
looks out of the clothes they al-
ready have.
With the poor economy, it only
makes sense to get new life from
your clothes. If you can't afford to
buy a new pair of pants, don't de-
spair- come to Kathleen. She can
help you love last year's clothes. If
you've got old clothes in your clos-
et that you haven't worn in years,
load them in your car and come to
Kathleen. If you have old clothes
that need a new look, bring them
to Kathleen and let them give you
a new look for a fraction of the cost
of buying a new wardrobe. Let her


help you redesign your wardrobe
using what you already have in
your closet.
With so many sales and lowered
prices designed to get you shop-
ping, you might be tempted to buy
things that don't fit properly as a
cost-saving measure. That's fine,
but if you want things to fit like
they're made for you, Kathleen
can do that. So bring that $10
skirt in and have her shorten the
hem or take in the waist- it's still
cheaper than that $78 designer
skirt, and when Kathleen is fin-
ished working her magic, it'll look
even better on you than the pricey
one.
Suppose you have a dress you
used to love, but the material is
falling apart from repeated wear-
ings (and washings!) and you can't


For over 30 years, Kathleen Mattea has breathed new life into old clothes.


leen and she'll re-create the dress
for you using new materials.
Kathleen can also help your kid's
clothes last longer- if the knees
are worn out or the pants got too
short over the summer, Kathleen
can save you the cost of a new
pair.
"A lot of people will go buy
brand-new uniforms because the
old ones no longer fit, but you can
let them out, take them in, hem
them, and get more life out of the
clothes," she says.
"We also alter wedding dresses,
prom dresses, and formal gowns,"
she says. So if you have a wedding
dress that's been passed down for
generations and you need it to fit
perfectly, Kathleen's your girl.
She can also turn your wedding
dress into a christening gown for
your baby or a First Communion
dress for your little girl.
Kathleen's talents don't stop at
clothes, either. If you want to turn
those old curtains into cafe cur-
tains, or if you bought a bedskirt
that's too long, Kathleen can alter
those. A tailor like Kathleen can
help you redecorate your home
for a fraction of the cost of buying
new. She can create throw pil-
lows, repair cushion zippers, and
make slipcovers.
Not everything Kathleen does is
major work, though; she's just as
happy to replace your zippers and
hem and cuff your clothes. If your
jeans gap at the waist because
you're curvy, Kathleen will make
the waist just right for you.
If you've bought a suit and the
store's tailor won't touch the tai-
loring because it's too involved,
have no fear- Kathleen can do it.
Hems start at $11; prices de-
pend on how the way the garment
is made and how much work is
required. Visit Kathleen today
across from Tyrone Square Mall
in The Marketplace.

Dire Need for Big
Brothers/Big Sisters
Who taught you to tie your first shoe?
Who went to the first game you ever
played in? Big Brothers Big Sisters
is currently seeking volunteers to be
a part of many "firsts" for children
right here in Pinellas County. There
are more than 200 children on the
waiting list hoping for a Big Brother,
Big Sister, or Big Couple. By investing
just a few hours a month, volunteers
can make a life changing impact on
a child.
Big Brothers Big Sisters of Pinellas
County is in dire need of mentors,
especially male and minority mentors.
There are more than 200 boys on the
waiting list waiting to be matched
with a positive role model. More than
74% percent of children waiting for
a "Big" are boys, but only 34 out of
every 100 inquiries to volunteer come
from men. Now more than ever, Big
Brothers Big Sisters needs male
volunteers to step up and help kids.
Economic circumstances have
created a greater need for more
families to have professionally
backed long-term mentoring support.
Single-parent homes, neighborhoods
with gangs and crime, poor role
models and poverty can lead a child
to despair, lack of self-worth and
ultimately poor choices. In addition,
there are an increasing number of
children being raised by relative
caregivers in Pinellas County. These
caregivers are unexpectedly faced
with the challenge of raising children
with time and resource constraints.
Fortunately there are people who are
willing to step up and provide these
children with a positive, caring role
model.
Mentoring is one of the most
rewarding, enjoyable and simple
things a volunteer can do. For as
little as one hour a week, volunteers
can add joy to the life of a child, and
ultimately, contribute greatly to his
or her potential. Together, "Bigs"
and "Littles" do simple, everyday
activities, such as going to a sporting
event, playing a game, going to a
park, or watching movies.
You don't have to change your life to
change the life of a child. Learn how
you can make a difference by going
to www.bbbspc.org or by calling 727-
518-8860.

your name known and call you to be invoked.
St. Jude, pray for us all who invoke your aid.
