A new patch of green and
a colorful tangle of jungle
gyms, swings and drums
became Roy Eden Park
playground last Satur-
day as the Pasadena Bear
Creek Neighborhood Asso-
ciation honored a man who
was part of their neigh-
borhood for many years.
Eden, who passed away in
July of last year, had been
a Crime Watch volunteer,

pl ic pgs s
ies for the elderly, accord-
ing to the Association's
Tonilyn Sharpe. She and
her husband Aaron are
the co-presidents of the
neighborhood association.

With big smiles and painted faces, neighborhood children play on the newly
dedicated equipment last Saturday as a city lot became the Roy Eden Park
playground. The park was named after Roy Eden, a crime watch volunteer
and great neighbor, who passed away last July of bone cancer.


Beach Tax Rate & Budget
Pass first reading
ST. PETE BEACH- Holiday lights, Mondays at
the library and $430,000 designated to reserves
are part of the city's proposed budget for next
fiscal year, which begins Oct. 1. The proposed
2.6718 operating village and the proposed
budget of $21.6 million passed on first reading
on Sept. 15.
The proposed operating village rate is .1884
mills higher than the current year's mileage rate
and equal to the roll back rate. Therefore there
is no reduction in property tax revenue even
though property tax values declined 6.6 percent.
Residents can check the effect on their tax bill
with the tax rate calculator on the city's See
Beach Budget, page 9

Gabber Special Edition
Next week, September 30, the Gabber will be
dedicated to Gulfport's 100th Anniversary.
3,000 papers will be hand delivered to Gulfport
homes.
Deadline for all advertising will be Monday,

Ten Years on 49th Street:
A Progress Report
First of a three part series
By Cathy Salustri
In 1998, Gulfportians took a long,
hard look at the 49th Street area of town
and didn't like what they saw. The
first thing people saw upon entering
Gulfport was a collection of dilapidated
buildings, shuttered businesses, anorexic
greenery, and a few apparently struggling
businesses.
"People were concerned about the
entrance to Gulfport," Yvonne Johnson,
who lives close to 49th Street, remembers.
"As you came down 49th Street there were
the shops that were scrungy and what
have you.
The city responded to concerns with
Resolution 98-18, which created the
Economic Development Committee, or
EDAC, for the 49th Street corridor of
Gulfport. The city charged the

Storm Water Tax
Collecting
ST. PETE BEACH- The city
commission ratified on Sept. 15
-
the city manager entering into an
agreement with the Pinellas County
Tax Collector. The tax collector will
collect the non ad-valorem taxes for
storm water improvements for a fee of
2 percent of the amount collected.
. .

Red Light Camera
Contract Awarded
.
The city signed a contract with Amer-
ican Traffic Solutions to provide the
city with red light cameras. These
cameras will record vehicles that do
.
not stop at certain red lights. Ameri-
can Traffic Solutions will install the
cameras.
"The city will not have to pay if the
cameras don t generate sufficient rev-
enue to cover the costs," Police Chief
Robert Vincent told council.
The contract lasts for five years. For
every $158 citation, the city gets $75;
the rest goes to the state. The com
pany will collect a portion of each fine
generated as well.


One Way for Safety
ST. PETE BEACH- The city
commission approved Sept. 15 on
first reading making an alley between
16th Avenue and 17th Avenue one-
way south bound. The Pass-A- Grille
Community Church made the request
for the one-way alleyway between
the church and the Montessori by
the Sea School. Cars would enter
from 17th Avenue and exit on 16th
Avenue, which is already a one-way
street to the west.
Basically it's an alley with only
enough space for one-way traffic. It
has to do with drop off/pickup of the
kids, City Manager Mike Bonfield
said.
a .
We believe this type of traffic
pattern would enhance the safety of
Our children and adults from drop-
off time, during the passage periods
between the two buildings during
school hours and at pickup time at
the end of school. We also believe
it would improve safety on Sunday
mornings between services," wrote
the church's council president Bob
Rogers.

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

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.

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.

City of Gulfport

Q: How much money, including in-kind services, is the city of Gulfport
spending on the centennial celebration next month?
A: The city has nothing budgeted, according to city manager Jim O'Reilly,
but it's prepared to kick in manpower and some money for the fireworks.
The city plans to absorb these costs through its operating budget.
The fireworks could cost up to $14,000, but the Gulfport Merchant's
Association told the city it plans to make a donation to help defray those
costs.
"We know we'llbe able to make a significant donation with the proceeds of
GeckoFest. We look forward to donating and being part of the celebration,
Leslie Gilchrist, president of the Merchant's Association, told the Gabber.
As for man-hours, Mr. O'Reilly says he plans to use mostly salaried
employees and perhaps between 20 and 30 hours from hourly workers.

This is a great way to support the little

item will require a $5 ticket. Each
furniture piece is $20.

Save-A-Lot Plans Opening By Mid-October
By Leigh Clifton
Get ready Gulfport, the .
new Save-A-Lot, located
where the old Winn Dixie
was on 22nd Ave. South
is just about on schedule,
2 ntentio Jared Cook
Taylor Construction, who
is doing the total remodel.
The 15,000 square foot
grocery store has had a
major overhaul; new walls,
new coolers and cases, new sprinkler system, the works.
According to Taylor, the project was originally due for completion by September
17th, but was help up because a new mechanical room had to be added onto the
backside of the building, to house refrigeration.
"It took two and a half months for the renovation," Taylor said. "But we hope
to turn it over to Save-A-Lot by the end of this month."
Taylor then said that Save-A-Lot was planning for a mid-October opening.

Gulfport Goes Green
"This is just the beginning of the
city's new energy program," Public
Works Director Don Sopak told coun-
cil. Resolution 2010-60 will mandate
that Gulfport take steps to reduce its
carbon footprint.
This resolution includes specific ac-
tions, such as replacing ailing roofs
with LEED-certified roofs, as well as
general directives, such as develop-
ing a conservation plan for every city
building. LEED certification stands
for Leadership in Energy and Envi-
ronmental Design.
Sopak told council the city has al-
ready taken some measures, includ-
ing changing out traffic light bulbs to
LED bulbs, which use 30% less en-
ergy than traditional traffic bulbs.
The city approved the resolution
unanimously at the Tuesday night
council meeting.

Green Park, from front page
"The idea really came from the whole neighborhood," Tonilyn said. "We
thought it was a great way to honor Roy. We went to the neighborhood
partnership we have with the City of St. Pete with the proposal and they
liked the idea. We got the ordinances and the Council approved it."
Initially, the park was part of past St. Pete Mayor Rick Baker's 'Play Close
to Home" plan, which stated that every child should have access to a park
near their homes. Tonilyn said that they had been on the list of proposed
parks before the new mayor, Bill Foster, took office. Foster honored the
proposal and Progress Energy, who owned the land, donated the lot to the
City. The City Parks Department will maintain the upkeep on the prop-
erty, which lies adjacent to the Pinellas Trail, on 64th and 5th Ave. South.
The playground was full of painted faces; after the dedication ceremony,
the Association had a big block party. Children lined up to get their faces
painted by Lisa Cingarano, who painted over 40 faces, before testing out
the newly installed equipment.
"We are grateful to American Legion Post 125, who donated 25 chairs
and ice. The Short Stop across the street also donated 8 bags of ice as well,"
Tonilyn said. "It was truly a volunteer effort."
One item missing from the playground is a handicapped swing. Muriel
Garrison, whose 13 year old son Dane is in a wheelchair, is still hoping that
someone will donate one to the park. Dane has to remain in his wheelchair
and cannot really utilize the park's benefits.
"There are at least 5 other handicapped kids in this neighborhood that
could benefit from a handicapped- access swing," Larrison said. "They have
nothing to play on if they visit the playground. We've seen the swings at an-
other school, so we know they can be used for these kids. We've been trying
very hard to get certain handicapped equipment, but it's definitely been an
uphill battle. The only real handicapped-access piece of equipment is the
plastic drums, which are accessible by someone in a wheelchair.
The park is open for use from morning until dusk every day.
. .
I think Roy would be proud," Tonilyn said with a wistful smile. "I just
know he would...

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 attorney
specializing in handling
"literally thousands" of
bankruptcies means that
he has dealt with virtu-
ally any kind of prob-
lem 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 sensi-
tive to the kinds of things
people face when making
the difficult decision to
file.
'Most attorneys have
never been in a situation
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 em-
barrassing it was for me
to have to stand in front
of judges and colleagues
who knew me and go
through the process my-
self, that usually helps to
put people more at ease
and understand that I
have been there and done
that MYSELF."


'Tou 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 num-
ber of seminars and writ-
ten professional papers
concerning bankruptcy
law in general, ECF re-
quirements and new is-
sues. He is a former di-
rector of the Bankruptcy
Section of the State Bar
of Georgia.
Outside of the court-
room, Sanders lives in
an unusual home in
Gulfport that was one

Dixie plaza owners and tenants to
fence dumpster area and Improve
parking lot landscaping. Work
with all businesses including
7th Avenue and 49th Street to
improve appearance.
The now-defunct Winn Dixie did
fence in the dumpsters, Gulfport code
enforcement officer Bruce Earling
said.

#3 Unify 49th Street, Tangerine
Avenue, Gulfport Boulevard and
Beach Boulevard by creating
a single theme. Install uniform
banners throughout the city from
Beach Boulevard to Gulfport
Boulevard and on Tangerine
Avenue and 49th Street.
The city now has a sign welcoming
peopletoGulfportastheycrossintothe
CH.1..n lu" Street.Therearenobanners
on 49th Street or Tangerine Avenue.

#4 Establish additional parkland
in the redevelopment area.
Request that the City purchase
additional land for park
facilities,
The city worked on the Little
League complex at Tomlinson Park,
Mr. O'Reilly said, adding, "We
subsequently improved the Greenway
with multipurpose walkway and
lighting." The city needs funding
from the Florida Department of
Transportation to build pedestrian
bridges across retention areas.
The city enlarged the pond at
Tomlinson Park, added batting cages,
skate park, ball fields, walkways and
lighting. The city opted not to build
basketball courts, opting instead,
Mayor Mike Yakes said, to share the
Ones at Hamilton-Disston school.
According to Mr. Carpenter, the city
purchased no lands.

#5StrengthenenforcementofCity
Codes and ensure 24 hour a day,
seven day a week enforcement.
Create a pamphlet outlining
pertinent codes. Create a 24-hour
code enforcement hotline.
"There's really no pamphlet that
I've ever seen. I cam in 2001,"
Mr. Yearling said, adding that
while there is no 24-hour hotline,
callers can leave a voicemail and
he will respond the next day.

#6 Eliminate unsightly storage of
cars / boats and general eyesores
within businesses. Amend the
Code of Ordinances to require
opaque fencing or shrubbery to


shield items from plain view.
I think they passed the ordinance in
regard to that, but that's never been
enforced strictly. That was in regard
to areas where a commercial business
would back up to a residential
property," Mr. Yearling said. He
started work with the city in 2001. "I
wasn't there so I can't tell you what
their intent was.

#7 Address the issue of outdoor
repair of vehicles at places of
business. Amend the Code of
Ordinances to prohibit outdoor
repair work on vehicles.
According to Mr. Yearling, city
code prohibits businesses from
working on cars in plain view.

#8 Eliminate all instances of
outside sales and displays.
Amend the Code of Ordinances
to prohibit all outdoor sales/
displays. Request the city of St.
Petersburg do the same.
"The city council now approves
outdoor sales in multiple areas of
the city," Mr. Yearling said. "Outdoor
sales are prohibited in certain zones.

#9 Address the issue of businesses
operating out of storage
facilities, and the safety concerns
created. Amend the Code of
Ordinances to prohibit specific
heavy commercial businesses
operating out of storage facilities.
"The city code prohibits this, with
the exception of a few storage units
grandfathered in. There are no new
businesses permitted to operate in
storage areas," Mr. Yearling said.

#10 Create an historic theme for
the area using the old trolley
route. Create walkways, lighting,
et center, using a theme. Replicate
the trolley as an attraction.
Initiate a program to designate
the trolley route as an historic
area.Installlighting,1andscaping,
historical markers and a replica
of the trolley to be used as a
welcome point.
The city manager told the Gabber
the city did everything but the trolley
replica, which won't happen with
Community Development Block
Grant, or CDBG, funding. The city
applied for the grant and the county
denied it.
The city's Parks and Recreation
Superintendent, Bob Williams, says
49th Street landscaping and benches
are done and they're now focused on


Gabber September 23 September 29, 2070


49th Street, from front page
committee with building an economic
or redevelopment plan for the area.
In October 2000 EDAC presented
the city with that had 29 projects
that would help meet three goals:
improve the appearance of, increase
safety in, and enhance the quality of
life for those living and working along
the corridor. Over the past decade the
city amended the plan as it worked
through it.
In addition to existing resources and
grants, the plan called for between
$1.75 million and $2.75 million of
city funding. Administrative Services
Director Dan Carpenter said the
city spent $642,500 of its tax dollars
(the plan called for no more than
$400,000) for the new neighborhood
center and $205,827.46 for the
Tangerine drainage project. The city
spent an additional $15,000 on signs
for Tangerine and 49th Street in 2002.
Any other money spent came from
grant funding, Mr. Carpenter says.
With the 10-year anniversary of the
EDAC plan approaching next month,
the Gabber revisited the original plan
(Gabber editor Ken Reichart sat on
the original committee) to see how
many of those initial projects actually
happened.
Over the next three weeks the
Gabber will compare the original
goals of the EDAC with what the city
accomplished over the past decade.
This week the Gabber looks at the
first set of goals, which dealt with
improving the appearance of the
area. Original goals are numbered;
the action taken over the past decade
is described beneath each numbered
goal.

#1 Eliminate areas of littering
and illegal dumping and increase
number of trash receptacles.
Trim areas of overgrowth and
continually monitor problem
areas.
Although current city manager
Jim O'Reilly didn't work for the
city then, he said he knows the city
accomplished this task.
"I know how clean it is over there.
It's been cleaned up. It's an ongoing
issue to keep the city up to code. We
presently have code enforcement
standards that we hope to enforce
and adhere to," he said.

#2 Improve the appearance of key
locations that can create poor
firstimpressions.WorkwithWinn






the Tangerine Greenway.
"We've got the sidewalks, the lights,
the trees," Mr. Williams said. "We're
going to be getting benches and trash
cans within a couple of months." Mr.
Williams says that the FDOT grant
willcover thoseimprovements."We're
sort of waiting for the trash cans so
we can tie everything together."

#11 Develop a beautification
programandinstallstreetscaping,
landscaping, walking trails,
lighting, et center. Ask St.
Petersburg to continue the theme
and rename 49th Street Gateway
Boulevard. Hire a firm to design
streetscaping, landscaping, et
center on the 49th Street corridor
and Tangerine Greenway.
Involve St. Petersburg to create
uniformity.
"We have similar lighting as St.
Petersburg," the city manager says,
adding that St. Petersburg also
planted oak along 49th Street. Gulfport
planted bushes and greenery as well.
As for the renaming, that didn't
happen and won't without a
joint effort between Pinellas
county and St. Petersburg.

#12 Create an adopt-a-spot
program, involving the local
community, that would include
regular removal of litter.
Encourage local community
organizations to maintain an
area and give them credit for
their work with signage.
The city has no such program in
place.

#13 Create walking areas
in residential areas. Install
landscaping, sidewalks and
curbing. Hire a development
firm to implement landscaping,
sidewalk construction and
curbing in residential areas.

The city developed the Tangerine
Greenway, Mr. O'Reilly said, adding
that city staff did the design rather
than a development firm.

#14 Initiate facade improvements
and painting of area businesses.
Establish a community
redevelopment plan and promote
the use of the 50/50 matching grant
funds for facade improvements.
"I believe they did," the city manager
said. "I've heard that in the past they
did that."

#15 Create murals with a theme


such as the historic trolley and old
time brick buildings with projects
Use county (CDBG) grant funds
and local artists to implement
facade improvements.

they relate to increasing public safety
in the area.

eff DeNight is changing the way
people feel about their insurance
company.
Jeffco-owns two insurance agencies,
Bentley-DeNight Insurance Services,
a full service, independent, Trusted
Choice agency that offers business,
auto, home, commercial, life, boat,
motorcycle, RV and umbrella policies.
He also owns Premier Choice Rebate
Flood Insurance, a flood insurance
agency that sells nothing but flood
Insurance.
"We're a flood insurance agency that
offers cash rebates back to all our
customers," Jeff explains,
So if you buy your flood insurance
through Premier Choice, you'll get at
least seven percent of your annual
premium (before fees and taxes) back
in the form of a rebate check.
"We give the money back to our cus-
tomers 60 days after the effective
month and subsequent renewals" Jeff
says.
Here's how the rebate works: You
get seven percent of your policy back
the first year. Every subsequent year
for the next five years you receive one
percent more back until you get to the
sixth year. In the sixth year and every
year followmg, customers will get 12
percent back as a rebate.
This rebate can add up to thousands
of dollars for the life of your home or
business policy. The company sends
you a check rather than taking the
money off the premium so you can
spend it on whatever you choose.
Do Premier Choice Flood Insurance
policies cost more than other flood
insurance policies?
Nope, Jeff says. FEMA is the only


'0 ertThe7wi flo
,,
policies,
flood insurance provider, so the cost
is the same no matter what flood
insurance company you use. The
policies written by his agency are
supported by the federal government
through FEMA.
FEMA pays a commission to the
agencies that write their policies.
Jeff and his agency are sharing that
commission with their customers.
Jeffsaysthingsaretoughforeveryone,
and if his company has a
little to share with the community,
it's happy to do so.
"With the economy the way it is, we
thought it would be nice to give some-
thing back, especially since insurance
has such a negative connotation," Jeff
says. Maybe not anymore.

Premier Choice: Flood Insurance Agency That Pays You!











#$400COSCODB GUide


LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). It could
be argued that going out to dinner
or taking a vacation is a waste of
money -- what do you have to show
for it in the end? This thinking is
wrongheaded. Your experiences will
actually stick with you long after
the material goods you could have
purchased instead have faded into
obscurity.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You'll
pay attention to your routine and
noticethewaysinwhichitislacking.
There seems to be enough time to
do the work you must do, but very
little time to explore options and
extras. And yet, it's those seemingly
extraneous activities that allow you
to be most creative. Adjust to make
more time for them.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21).
You are most fulfilled when putting
something into the world that wasn't
there before. You do need the right
conditions in order to be creative,
but it's not what you think. There
is nothing expensive to buy and no
place exotic you need to go. It's a
simple, repetitive task that will open
you up to inspiration.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19).
Your task is interesting this week
and will stimulate you on many
levels. Take a whirling dervish
approach to this work. Gather
influences from all 360 degrees
of your surroundings. Instead of
being pulled in many directions and
spinning out uncontrollably, you'll
stay contained and controlled as
you spin inward.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18).
Sometimes you cross a goal off of
your list because you accomplishedit.
Other times, you cross it off because
it's been there so long it's getting old.
If it were really the right goal for
you, you would have done it by now.
Both of these reasons are good. Slash
.
a goal off the list m order to make


room for a new one.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You're
the leader of a group, and this takes
thought, energy and effort. By the
end of the week, you'll likely feel
that you need a break from being in
charge. You want others to operate
independent of your direction. This
will eventually happen, but for now
you still must steer the way.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Your
powers of observation and insight
are strong this week. Pay careful
attention to the questions people ask
you. Most questions will reveal more
about the person asking than your
answer will reveal about you. Reflect
the exact same question back to the
asker and you'll learn something
truly interesting.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You
might want to rearrange your vision
of the past. There's a lot to let go of.
This is true for most people, and you
won't be the only one working on this.
Many don't even have the courage
to sort through the old baggage.
Commend yourself. The way you see
your history is just as important as
how it really happened.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You
want to make an impression. It's not
because you care so much about what
the other person thinks about you.
It's more because there's something
inside you that wants to prove what
you can do. Even though you could
get by doing much less, you feel
that you must make the extra effort
needed to rise to the top.
CANCER (June 22-July 22).
Socially, you'll walk a fine line.
You're knowledgeable and connected
and want to share. However, you also
needtobesensitivetotheegosofthose
around you. Acting at all superior
to others will arouse antagonism.
Rememberthatlikeequalslike.Focus
on the ways in which you are similar
to the rest of your group.

.
The river, known to many for its mermaids who perform daily in the spring,
.
is one of the few clear-water rivers in Florida. Some club members expressed
shock at the amount of trash they pulled from the river and its banks.
.
When you're in the boat, the river s pristine. But when you step on the shore...
oh, my God," Kurt Zuelssdorf, one of the club organizers, said. Zuelssdorf, who
formed the club as an offshoot of his paddling business, had two groups on
the river last Saturday. One group collected trash from the riverbanks by the
.
Chassahowitzka Wildlife Management Area while another looked for debris
along the river. Paddlers told Zuelssdorf they found most of the waterway

trash along the two miles north of the take-out spot at Roger s Park.
The club, Kayak Nature Adventures Paddling club, charges a $35 annual
membership fee but refunds the fee for any member who completes one

cleanup every six months. At its second meeting club organizers said they
would also organize cleanup of local parks after holiday weekends as well as

join Zuelssdorf on his regular cleanup in Clam Bayou and Bear Creek.

creek where they found other ducks
to keep them company. We tried to
get them back and even used our
gentle mouthed Chesapeake retriever
to try and capture them. We were
unsuccessful. We left and they stayed
living, we were led to believe, happily
ever after.
Of course there were dogs. The
retriever was a native of the farm
area and from his puppy days he
challenged the many farm cats for
dead fish. He was badly scratched and
bitten, but won the battle. His over
stretched belly rubbed the ground
and he was sick, but he won. His view
on life was pretty much that you
won the battle at whatever cost. He
eventually ran into a pit bull and lost
the first battle, but after he returned
from the hospital won the war. But,
no, he didn't kill the dog, just threw
him around the street a bit. He later
lost the war to a truck just couldn't
hang on to the rear tire. It didn't kill
him, but he limped for life.
He, Choptank, named for aMaryland
Eastern Shore river, went on to
greater things. He was regular at my
school. The girls would rescue him
from the dog catcher by taking him
in the girl's room. Actually, he didn't
dislike the dog catcher. After tiring
of a merry chase, he leaped into the
front seat of the catcher's truck.
Choptank was an active baseball
player. Unrecruited, of course, but
a whiz at intercepting ground balls.
Unfortunately, he didn't trot to first
base. He was so active at school,
getting there often before me and
waiting for me after, that, at my 8th
grade graduation, they presented
him with a diploma which he proudly
accepted, holding it gently and
respectfully in his mouth.
More about Choptank, other dogs,
and a few farm animals next week.
All in all, they're more fun that
mosques, churches, religions, Imams
and pastors no offense to any of
them, but...

Instead we had a goat. I'm not
certain I really remember the goat
since I was very young maybe 3
or 4 but I grew up knowing that
a goat will butt you if you turn your
back and that ours liked to climb up
on top of the car. I don't remember
what the neighbors thought about
the goat, but I do know they are good
for cutting grass.
Other than that we had rabbits
running in and out of the house -pets,
of course. It wouldn't be unusual for
a guest to sit on the couch and find a
rabbit peering up from under it. No,

IVIonkeys and Other
Animals I have Known
Monkeying around with that macaque
monkey that is running around the
area, is probably not a good idea.
However, the monkey is lighting up
the kinder side of people who feed
him occasionally.
He went from being a kind of
harmless bandit on-the-run, to a hero
for escaping the would-be captors, to
being seen as a lonely, searching for
a friend. The picture of him looking
wistfully into a mirror was the final
stroke to his capturing the public
instead of the reverse.
I have no personal interest in the
monkey, but I did grow up with
various animals moving in, out and
around the house, and at one time,
on a small farm. While there were
no monkeys, my father, who spent
several years at sea in the 1910s and
20s, was apparently fond of them.

Fourth Annual
Landscape Tour
Lots of people would love to
incorporate more native plants in
their gardens for many good reasons,
including to benefit the environment,
invite birds and butterflies, reduce
maintenance tasks, etc. But there
not sure how to start and wonder:
Which plants are native and which
aren't? Which species are right for
my yard? How do I create a landscape
design? One of the best ways to learn
is by example, and the Pinellas
Chapter of the Florida Native Plant
Society is providing an opportunity
for the public to see some successful
native landscapes with their fourth
annual Native Landscape Tour on

p.m. and Sunday, September 26, 11
a.m. to 4 p.m.

Saturday, north county homes on
Sunday. The south county tour

for a suggested donation of $5
($8 day of event). Registration is

KUHN, BETTY M., 90, passed
away Sept. 11, 2010 at The Springs
nursing facility in South Pasadena.
Born in Los Angeles, CA, Betty was
quickly adopted by oilman Frank
B. Mathews and his wife, Elise. In
1926, age 6, Betty accompanied her
stepparents on a trip around the
.
world which led to a life long inter-
.
est in travel and foreign affairs. The
.
early 30's brought financial hardship
.
and her step-father died in 1937. Her
.
sister, Sv1via, who had been adopted
by another couple, suffered likewise.
During the late 30's, Betty developed
into an accomplished dancer who
counted the late Gower Champion
among her partners. She was also of-
fered a screen test by a movie studio,
but turned it down: she wanted to
travel. Graduating from UCLA dur-
ing WWII, Betty promptly got a job
as a civilian working for the military
and was posted to Pearl Harbor, HI.
Soon after her arrival, she and other
gals hosted a "social" given for the
survivors of the USS Indianapolis.
The ship had delivered the atomic
bomb to U.S. Forces in the Pacific
and had been sunk while returning
to station with great loss of life. Re-
maining in Hawaii after the war, she
met a naval aviator, Melvin M. Kuhn
in 1947. They were married near the
end of that year. They traveled exten-
sively as a military couple before re-
tiring to St. Petersburg in 1969. Her
husband passed away in 1998. She
is survived by her son, William M.
Kuhn of St. Petersbur ; two nieces;
two grandnephews: and three grand-
nieces. She will be laid to rest next to
her husband at Bay Pines Veterans
Cemetery in a private service. Dona-
tions in her memory can be made to

Friday Night


Southem '









people laugh as Lady Enid, and
Brian Webb Russell (who audiences
may remember from The Seafarer
this summer) turned in an almost-
flawless performance Friday night.
He wore everything from a bustle
to a fez and was the Tim Conway to
Matthew McGee's Harvey Korman.
Even now, remembering parts
of McGee's performance makes
me laugh. His straight man was
ridiculous and amusing and campy
and sincere. Although both actors
did an exceptional job, McGee
turned in perhaps the finest comedic
performance I've ever seen on any
local stage.
Set designer Jeffery Dean created
a beautiful and versatile set; the
one complex scene change went
off flawlessly. This set, by design,
includes several hidden areas for
actors to make exits and unexpected
entrances, and Dean incorporates

t stagecraft nicely into a well-
The only flaw, from a technical
standpoint, is the loud sound of
ripping Velcro as actors shed one
costume and dive into another. As
the audience warms to the play's plot,
however, the sound of the costume
changes only adds to the comedy.
In all, Todd Olson again presents
local audiences with something
amazing. With the addition of
Karla Hartley, formerly of the Straz
Center for the Performing Arts,
to the production staff and talent
like Joe Oshry (who also lights the
Straz) lighting the space, American
Stage seems perfectly poised to
make downtown St. Petersburg the
primary theatre destination for the
entire Tampa Bay area.
The Mystery of Irma Vep runs
through October 10. Wednesday,
September 28 is a "Pay What You
Can" night. Call American Stage at

Matthe Mc;e an rinWbbRssl tanChresLdamshlaiuscmdyTE


By Cathy Salustri

There are plays that speak in grand
language to the state of the human
condition. There are plays that show
you the fruits of a live well-lived with
bold statements and majestic themes.
Thereareplaysthatredeemthevilest
of creatures with poetic language
spoken in iambic pentameter.
The Mystery of Irma Vep does none
of those things.
What it does is better. This Charles
Ludlum play doesn't just poke fun
at America's most treasured fears, it
hangs them out for everyone to see
- and laugh at. This play is Mystery
Science Theatre 3000 without the
wisecracking robots. It's every bad
horror movie from the dawn of film.
It's Plan Nine From Outer Space, The
Rocky Horror Picture Show, Rebecca,
and every Boris Karloff movie ever
made- on stage.
And American Stage does it
beautifully.
When I heard last year that the St.
Petersburg theatre planned to do
this show around Halloween, I was
delighted. It's the perfect Halloween
show a campy horror/mystery that
the audiences should love.


I was also apprehensive. Performing
comedy is hard; people don't realize
how hard it is to make people laugh,
and when this play isn't funny, it
doesn't have much else to offer. I
stage managed the StageWorks
production of this show at the Tampa
Bay Performing Arts Center a few
years back and know from a few
rough rehearsals how flat the show
falls when the actors aren't on their
game.
Fortunately, Matthew McGee (Lord
Edgar, among others) and Brian
Webb Russell (Lady Enid and others)
were more than able to delight and
amuse a packed house at the opening
night performance last week. The
two men rotated through a cast of
(at best count) eight characters,
sometimes with seconds between
costume and character changes. It
sounds wonderfully trite to call this
show a zany, delightful romp through
every bad horror movie of the 30s,
but that's pretty much what it is. It is
theatre camp, and well-done theatre
camp at that.
Do not mistake that to mean you
won't see some fine acting. It is
much easier to turn in a compelling
Lady MacBeth than it is to make

What is Disclaimer
Of intereSt?
Disclaimer of interest, in the law
of inheritance, wills and trusts, is a
term that describes an attempt by a
person to give up their legal right to
benefit from an inheritance (either
under a will or through intestacy)
or through a trust. A disclaimer of
interest cannot be changed. There
are a number of reasons why a person
might wish to avoid an inheritance'
particularly if the proceeds would
only go to their creditors, or if it
would drastically affect their income
tax liabilities. Under the common
law, a person who disclaimed their
interest would be treated as though
they had died before the trust or will
came into effect. This was a sensible
option if the disclaiming party was an


In addition to the more typical
disclaimer under wills, an individual
may also be able to disclaim his
interest as the beneficiary of a
life insurance policy or employee
benefit plans. It may also apply to
concurrent interests in real property
that automatically transfer after
.
death by operation of law rather than
by the rules of inheritance (such as
joint tenancies or tenancies by the
entirety).

Disclaimer of interest is also called a
renunciation. A disclaimer of interest
must be complete, and not a partial
disclaimer. Such a disclaimer can be
made by a legal guardian on behalf
of a person who lacks the capacity to
make the disclaimer themselves, but
this usually requires a finding by the
Probate Court that the disclaimer is
in the ward s best interest.
The disclaimer must be in writing
and submitted to the Probate Court
overseeing the administration of

emoved any benefits of the trust or
inheritance.

well as a town clerk and a marshal,
