Sparse Turnout at Amendment Four Fo

F .....

Eight people attended the Amendment Four Forum at the Gulfport Casino
last Thursday night.

A Peek at the 2010
By Melissa Lattman
How much has changed in the
last three years? The American
Community Survey by the U.S.
Census Bureau looks at how geo-
graphic areas with a population
over 65,000 change each year. The
figures for 2009, which were re-
leased last week give a portrait of
Pinellas County by the numbers.
The number of household de-
creased but household size stayed
steady at 2.2 people.

Ten Years on 49th Street:
Safety Issues
Part Two of Three
By Cathy Salustri
Ten years ago Gulfport started a plan to overhaul
the 49th Street Corridor. Last week, the Gabber
looked at how the city addressed the original plan's
tactics to improve the appearance of the area. This
week we examine how the city dealt with issues re-
lating to increasing safety along 49th Street.
Original goals, set by the Economic Development
Advisory Committee, or EDAC, are numbered; the
action taken over the past decade is described be-
neath each numbered goal.

2,229 Miles, A Ride for Charity and Respect
By Leigh Clifton
2,229 miles- that's how many miles it is from Santa Barbara,
California to St. Petersburg, Florida. Miles and miles of hills, valleys
and desert heat. It's how many miles a 14 year old boy, Thomas
Jessop, from Santa Barbara, California biked across the country to
raise awareness and money for the "half homeless"; those people
who, by some circumstance, have lost their homes and now live in
their vehicles.
The program, called Safe Parking, stemmed from a massive legal
maneuver the city of Santa Barbara had staged against the homeless
in an attempt to stop them from parking within the city limits. They
began a hard- line approach, ticketing and harassing people to move Thomas Jess
their vehicles. 2,229 miles

Stetson Law celebrated 110 years as law library named
for Dolly and Homer Hand

GULFPORT, Fla. On Oct. 2, Stetson University College of Law, Florida's
first law school, celebrated 110 years of legal education by naming the law
library on its Gulfport campus after philanthropists Dolly and Homer Hand.
"Dolly and Homer Hand have nourished academic excellence at Stetson
University for more than 50 years. We are grateful for their philanthropy and
feel privileged to name the law library in their honor on our 110th anniversary,"
said Dean Darby Dickerson.
Dolly Hand was the only woman in her 1949 graduating class and the youngest
student to ever graduate from the College of Law. She is a 16-year trustee of
Stetson University, and a member of the College of Law's Hall of Fame. Her
husband Homer has received Stetson Law's Distinguished Service Award and
numerous civic awards.
The Hands are long-time supporters of education and the arts in Florida.
In 1996, they were presented with the Champion of Higher Independent
Education in Florida Award.
The Dolly & Homer Hand Law Library was built on Stetson's Gulfport
campus in 1998 and is one of the most advanced legal research centers in the
southeastern U.S. The library houses more than 420,000 volumes, including
a collection of statutes, court reports, journals and treatises. The academic
law library also houses an archive of documents from the Nuremberg war
tribunals, donated by Stetson's long-serving dean and judge at the tribunals,
Harold Sebring.
The generosity of Dolly and Homer Handis evident across Stetson University's
four campuses. In 2007, the Hands donated a $1 million lead gift for the 5,000-
square-foot Homer and Dolly Hand Art Center on Stetson's DeLand campus.
The Hand Art Center houses a massive collection of works by Modernist painter
Oscar Bluemner and features two galleries, a foyer gallery and reception area,
an art study and seminar room, and an art preparation area and vault.

Gulfport's First "Green House" Grows Energy, Not Plants

Green house co-owner Van Emery stands in what will be his 'Great Room' when the house is finished in
December. He and his partner Stuart wanted to go as 'green' as possible and decided on a recycled steel
frame house.

By Leigh Clifton
By the end of December
Gulfport will have its first
"Green House", a house
that's been L.E.E.D. (US
Green Building Council's
Leadership in Energy and
Environmental Design) pre-
liminarily rated as a Gold
project. L.E.E.D. offers four
certification levels; Certified,
Silver, Gold and Platinum.
In order to be L.E.E.D. cer-
tified, a building must meet
136 points of specific build-
ing practices, which will
vary slightly with the size of
the home.
Built for partners Van Em-
ery and Stuart Fraser by lo-
cal builder Michael Knettle,
the house is actually a kit
from Kodiak Steel, which is
a specialist in recycled steel
house frames for houses
built in hurricane or flood
zones. The recycled steel for
this one house weighs in at
91,000 lbs, which includes
the beams, studs, steel sid-
ing walls and steel roof.
"Once we purchased the

steel frame, we looked
around for a builder to put
the house together for us,
lay the foundation and do
all the finishing work. Van
and I looked at four differ-
ent builders but none of
them either wanted to work
with steel or had little or no
experience with it. Finally,
Michele King recommended
builder Michael Knettle,
who not only has experience
working with steel, but is an
architect as well. We knew
that would be helpful of we
needed to add of modify any
of the plans," said co-home
owner Stuart Fraser.
The first thing Knettle did
was to survey the foundation
area. What he found could
have been a bit daunting at
first for another builder.
"Based on the soil report, we
were told that we wouldn't
hit any water until we were
5'0" into the ground. How-
ever, we actually hit some
at a foot and a half when we
started excavating for the
foundation. With such an
extremely high water table,

we decided to dig down an-
other two feet into the wet
soil and fill the base of each
of the pier locations with
concrete slurry, which ex-
pands when wet and absorbs
several times its dry mass in
water. This gave us a stable
working surface at the base
of each of the holes for the
piers. It required many more
yards of concrete, but gave
me the peace of mind know-
ing that the foundation was
sound. It's like the founda-
tion has a foundation," Knet-
tle explained.
"The foundation is a series
of 18 3'x3'xl'6" deep concrete
piers under each of the col-
umn points and then bonded
together with a concrete
grade beam that is 1'0"x 1'4"
and runs the entire perim-
eter and down the center.
This allows for differential
settlement: any one of the
piers could settle at a differ-
ent rate with no effect on the
structural soundness of the
house," Knettle said.
The house is a virtual for-
tress; it can withstand hur-

ricane force winds up to 155
MPH and is at an elevation
of 15.25 ft, well over the AE
13 flood zone. It was also de-
signed to withstand a 4.2 to
5.6 earthquake, just in case
those tectonic plates decide
to dance a bit.
But it's the many other
"Green" features that make
it such an overall energy and
water conserving residence.
There are 3.89 KW solar
panels, which will heat the
solar water heater. There is
a grey water recovery sys-
tem (water from the washer,
showers and bathroom sinks)
that will be used to flush the
toilets. There is a rain wa-
ter recovery system; a 1,000
gallon tank that will collect
rainwater for irrigation.
The insulation is well over
the required for code re-
quirements and the windows
are double-paned. Finally,
the light fixtures are LED,
the AC has 2 zone program-
mable thermostats and all
of the appliances are energy
star certified.
The house overlooks sce-
nic Wood Ibis Park and Lake
and there will be a lovely foy-
er in the front of the house,
with stairs leading up to the
living area. The house will
have 2400 sq. ft. of living
space upstairs 1680 sq. ft.
of garage space downstairs
with 240 sq. ft. allocated for
the foyer.
The L.E.E.D. "Green
House" will be finished ten-
tatively by December 31st,
so Van and Stuart can have
a belated Christmas and cel-
ebrate the New Year in their
new home. They are both
looking forward to seeing the
fabulous finished product.

To take a look at the on
going construction, stop by
5820 27th Ave S. For infor-
mation about the steel home

Council Member Salmon, Town Hall Meeting



Jennifer Salmon listed citizen concerns and discussed them during her Town Hall meeting
last week.

"I have no cookies," Gulfport coun-
cilmember Jennifer Salmon joked
as she opened her quarterly town
hall meeting last week. The coun-
cilwoman explained to newcomers
that she made cookies for her first
town hall meeting, but said she had
a pool play date with her son that
afternoon and didn't make cookies.
From there, Councilmember
Salmon moved into talking about
her past months on council. She said
council "has been a real up-and-
down learning curve for me," but
added that she liked the town hall
She asked the 12 people in at-
tendance to give her a list of their
concerns. Those concerns included
the reserve fund, specifically, Cindy
Davis said, the marina reserve fund.
"The cash cow, you mean?" Coun-
cilwoman Salmon asked.
Bob Newcomb asked to discuss
public comment at workshops, while
Barbara Miszaros wanted to talk
about the recycling program's pos-
sible expansion. Al Davis suggested
that the city needed to have a way
to review the city manager, clerk,
and attorney's performance.
"The city, in the process of chang-
ing city managers, doesn't have an
assessment process. That concerns
me not only for the incumbent, but...
it's very difficult for taxpayers to
vote for retention or tax increases
if they don't know how that person

measured up," Mr. Davis explained.
Mr. Newcomb said he felt the city
should account for actual expenses
and benefits offered by facilities like
those at the Recreation and Senior
Centers. Mr. Newcomb, who fre-
quently makes fiscal-minded sugges-
tions to council, also later added that
he felt the city should adopt a line
item budget.
"Our form of government has a lot
to do with how we budget," he said.
Without a line-item budget, he add-
ed, those preparing the budget "can
technically take your budget and
slide stuff around like you wouldn't
believe... and believe me, they do it.
So we have a system that's not very
Councilwoman Salmon initially
explained her take on why public
comment might not be appropriate
at workshops.
"Sometimes the public comment
can get sort of stinging.... whatever
little bit of camaraderie we've estab-
lished can get lost. You can roll your
eyes, you can hate me for saying it,"
she said.
Other issues included a suggestion
to increase the council size, perhaps
by splitting the Pasadena Yacht and
Country Club and marina area off
into separate districts, sunsets on
different ordinances, and the cost
and benefits of public programs.
One resident also commented that
she noticed that the mayor spoke

about the effects of applause on
the Clerk's ears when the applause
resulted from a council decision or
comment but not when it was in rec-
ognizing an individual for an award.
The Clerk has told the Gabber that it
does not hurt her ears when people

Community Center
Rental Rates Lowered
The St. Pete Beach city commission
approved on first reading lowering
weekend rental rates at the commu-
nity center. Four hour rentals would
be $1,000; 6 hours for $1,500, 8 hours

St. Pete Beach

Terri Finnerty thanked individuals
and companies for donations to Sup-
port Our Troops. Donations ranged
from coffee to dog biscuits for a ca-
nine unit to money to cover postage.
About 100 boxes go out each month
to military personnel serving in Iraq
and Afghanistan. Postage costs about
$1,250 each month plus money is
needed to purchase additional items
for the care packages. A special cer-
tificate of appreciation went to resi-
dent Mimi Gewanter for her faithful
monthly donations.
The non-profit just went on Face-
book, put "SPB Support Our Troops"
in the site's search box.

Folkfest St. Pete 2010
By Leigh Clifton

The Fourth Annual Folkfest St. Pete was
held downtown last weekend on Central Av-
enue, in front of Creative Clay Studio. Over i
50 artists exhibited and 10 musical acts, in-
cluding the Indigo Girls Ronny Elliot and
Dar Williams, played over the three-day fes-
tival. In addition, there were children's en-
tertainment booths and local food vendors
to feed the masses.
Folkfest St. Pete is the brainchild of Cre-
ative Clay's Executive Director Grace-Anne
Alfiero, who wanted a showcase for the tal-
ented challenged artists that study at Cre-
ative Clay as well as a fundraiser for the

Kids from the Song and Dance Troup Pizzaz watch
as a local artist throws pottery on the wheel while .
another trims the hardening clay into shapes.

Congrats, Margaret!

Margaret Hauptle, a long time
former resident of Gulfport,
recently turned 102 years old!
While in Gulfport, Margaret
enjoyed fishing from the Gulfport
Pier and the Sunshine SkI\\.i\
in the 60s and 70s. She remained
physically active by walking,
raking leaves and mowing her
grass. She was an active member
of Holy Name Catholic Church.
She volunteered for the Gulfport
Reassurance Program for many
years. Traveling was fun and she
often took chartered bus tours.
When she turned 90, she went
to live with her daughter and
her family in Houston. When the
family moved to Asheville, NC, in
2002, Margaret moved too.
Now that she is 102 years old,
she greets everyone with a big
smile and kisses. Ice cream is her
favorite and she has been known
to have it for breakfast! She takes
no medication. Her good health,
some say, comes from her strong
closeness to God, an optimistic
attitude, and a sense of humor.
And ice cream, in moderation!

People brought art work, jewelry and other items to the antique appraisal fair held at
the community center Saturday morning. The fundraiser for the Gulf Beaches Historical
Museum had professionals from Granny's Auction House examine figurines, art and other
treasures and collectibles people brought. Pictured are appraiser Walter Hodgdon and
St. Pete Beach resident Judy Rutledge. Rutledge wanted to get more information on the
Rembrandt copy she has had for a while. She received the painting from an old friend who
bought it in auction. Hodgdon is going to do some research on the artist who painted it to
help determine the piece's value. The original Rembrandt is in Chicago.

The Parking program was
begun only after homeless
legal challenges to the
aggressive law enforcement
The City of Santa Barbara
then set aside public and
company parking lots,
largely unused at night,
as designated place for the
homeless to park. There are
no facilities offered at most
of the lots, so it is often a
tenuous and dangerous way
to live. Thomas volunteers
as an outreach person,
dropping off sack lunches to
the folks in the lots. He also
volunteers at the Catholic
Charities food pantry 4-5
hours a week. Thomas knows
all of this first hand; he, his
father Jess and 15 year old
brother David have been
"half homeless" for six years.
They live in a 1981 converted
school bus, named Solstice,
which has the upper half of a
1983 VW Vanagon welded to
the top. He and David sleep
up there. They have three
dogs; Spooky Doo, Yeehaw
and Yatzi; all three are loud,
comical and love to sit in
the driver's seat when Jess
drives the bus.
Father Jess was a CEO of
a major dot.com back in the
day; if you use email, chances
are, it's because he designed
some of the protocols. They
had a mansion, a Rolls
Royce and all the trappings
of success, the Good Life.
When the bubble burst, Jess
found himself unable to ride
out the rollercoaster. He
couldn't get hired; he was
too qualified. He was also a
Vet who suffered from Post
Traumatic Stress Syndrome.
When he was working, he
had kept the depression at
bay; after the dot.com bust,
he grew despondent, and
within a year, he and the
boys traded in their mansion
for Solstice. It was not an

... .-,,mi i -

easy thing, yet both David
and Thomas exude such an
air of hopefulness. It's been
six years.
But back to Thomas...
He's a kid, a young man
who speaks deliberately,
with a huge white smile
and engaging green eyes.
He's been home and virtual
schooled, graduating high
school at age 12. He's a
computer wizard; with a dad
like his how could he not be?
He was ready for college, but
it wasn't ready for him. He
started at Santa Barbara City
College that year, but they
reneged on their acceptance,
telling him to wait until he
was at least 15 so it would be
easier for him to relate to the
other students.
"I want to study Robotics
and Bio-Chemistry," he says.
"I've been taught how to use
computers since I was a baby.
I want to design and build
advancedprosthetics, cyborg-
style; the kind you can't tell
is a prosthetic. I want to help
people with disabilities feel
more comfortable with their
Last May, Thomas decided
he wanted to compete in

the IronKids Competitions
and hooked up with Team
Echelon, a prestigious biking
club based in Santa Barbara.
They have 12 pro cyclists
and 8 Olympians on the
club roster. Thomas wasn't
even a biker; he just decided
that he wanted to do it. He
started training on an older
Trek racing bike someone
in the club had given him
and started training hard
for the grueling IronKids
races which are like mini
Triathlons; a three mile
swim, an eight mile bike and
two mile run. The idea hit
him to ride across country,
competing in the IronKids
races AND promote the idea
of the Safe Parking program.
The final destination: St.
Petersburg, Florida, home
of the National IronKids
Competition, October 3rd.
He left in June, after a month
of training, at first riding in
front, to the side, then finally
drafting off the back of the
bus as Jess drove, which
seemed the most efficient
way to do it, riding anywhere
from 60-120 miles a day; his
longest was 158 miles in one
day. He got up to speeds of

40 MPH. Along the way, he
stopped wherever there was
an IronKids competition
and started placing high in
the stats. In Denver he hit
a snag... actually he hit the
back of a van who had come
to a sudden stop, putting his
bottom teeth through his
lip, severing an artery and
breaking a bone in his hand.
"I lost a lot of blood right
away," Thomas said. "So
we had to spend a month
in Denver so I could go to
a specialist after the first
repair on the lip broke
open. He added a few more
stitches the second time and
it was ok. It still feels a little
weird," he said as he touched
the inside of his lip with his
finger. After that, he only
traveled behind the bus; it
was safer.
Along the way, Thomas,
David and Jess stopped at
Unity Churches along the
route. The churches had
agreed to collect donations
for Thomas to use to help
start up Safe Parking
programs in other cities and
bring awareness to the plight
of the homeless. So far, he's
collected almost $7000.00

Gabber October 7 October 13, 2010

in donations. He has no corporate
sponsors, but will hopefully try and
interest a few of the biking industry
leaders in his cause.
Thomas wants to be in London
2012 as an Olympic competitive
biker; he also wants to ride the Tour
de France. But he's still working on
conditioning; although there's no age
limit, he will have to be in optimum
shape. He's only 14 and his muscles
are still developing.
But what makes Thomas Jessop
an everyday hero is that he took his
adverse situation of being essentially
homeless, turned around and has
helped others, volunteering his time
and energy. He is a driven, engaging,
kind and wonderful young man.
He is generous to others and when
he could have been bitter and sad,
became instead a compassionate
humanitarian at the tender age of 14.
He saw a need for change then went
out and tried to make it happen. At
the National Championships in St.
Pete last Sunday, he placed 8th...
in the Nation. He started in May.
Not too shabby. Pretty awesome

St. Pete Beach Receives Grant For Energy Efficiency
The city received a $250,000 federal grant to improve energy efficiency. On Sept.
28 the city commission awarded to Hill York the contract to review the city's en-
ergy usage and recommend and install improvements to reduce energy costs. The
design and implementation project includes analyzing the city's utility bills and
measuring how the city is using energy. Hill York will come up with a list of energy
saving recommendations ranking them based on how much money they would
save the city, said Robert Pulsifer of Hill York. It is anticipated the city will save
its match for the grant in about a year.

By L h C n

Bill Orzech, Gulfport: "I don't
think we should even have a two
party system, let alone a three party
one. Let's just have one party; the
American Party. I don't think the
Tea Party will have much influence
on November's elections. They're
tagging onto the original Boston
Tea Party mentality; Taxation
without representation is tyranny.
But that's not even relevant here. I
disagree with their platform entirely.
People like Rush Limbaugh like
these candidates. He's nothing but
an agitator. They should name an
appliance after him. But the Tea Party
is getting a lot of publicity because
they say they're different. They try to
associate with progressives. Maybe
it's a good thing, but I don't agree
with them at all. Let's just have one
party, the American Party."
partythe Aerica Party

Elizabeth Burbank, St. Pete
Beach: "I see no difference between
their influence and that of the
Million Man March; they're both
just platforms and I don't think the
Tea Party will have much influence
over the elections at all. They bill
themselves as a third party in a two-
party system. But they need to be
careful; they come across as the ultra-
conservative right. Lots of people
with conservative values don't quite
know what to think of the Tea Party
candidates. Now, I don't like the
government having so much control;
I'm a registered Republican and I
think the Tea Party might be a bit
too extreme even for me. I grew up in
California; we're pretty conservative
in our politics. But to me, more laws
mean less freedom."

Theresa Gillen, vacationing in
St. Pete Beach: "I'm so tired of them
telling everyone they're a progressive
party; their message isvery confusing.
I think they have a hidden agenda.
Because they've gained so much
popularity, other fringe groups have
now jumped on their bandwagon.
They don't really seem to have a
clear message. The other groups are
diluting whatever the Tea Party's
message really is. I mean, what IS
there original message? What makes
them different? I don't trust them.
They've picked up endorsements
from people like Sarah Palin and so
many other "personalities' that follow
her. Most of those candidates have
never held any political office. What
will they do if they get into office? I'm
very wary and turned off by them."

John Keith and dog Shelby Lynn, Gulfport: "Yes, I think they have relevance but
they won't make much of a difference in November. I just don't think they have that
much clout. I think that both the Democrats and Republicans are stronger than the
Tea Party in terms of influence. I think there will a lot of people voting in November,
but a lot of people, like me, are voting for the individuals, not the party. Republicans
are probably due to get a majority of the House and Senate. But people like Charlie
Crist, who's running as an Independent, not a Republican or Tea Party candidate,
will still run away with the election. I'll vote for him and I think a lot of people will
cross party lines to vote the person. So I don't think the Tea Party will get much
traction or make that much of a difference."

Gulfport's Incorporation to be Re-enacted
On October 12, 1910, 30 of the town's 38 registered voters met at the Casino
to cast their ballots on the question of incorporation. After the vote for approval
by a margin of 23-7, a mayor and council were elected, as well as a town clerk
and a marshal, and the name "Gulfport" was officially, though not unanimously,
On October 12 of this year, 2010, citizens will re-enact that vote in celebration of
Gulfport's centennial. The event, which is free to the public, will be held at 7 p.m.
at the Casino Ballroom, 5500 Shore Boulevard S., as part of an Open House, and
all are invited to attend.
Former Councilmember and Vice-Mayor Bob Worthington is organizing the
re-enactment, and anyone who wishes to play a role should contact him at 727-916-
8014. Mr. Worthington, whose family has been in Gulfport since the 19th century,
is a great-grandson of one of the original councilmembers, Henry Slaughter.

The Art Guild of Treasure Island
offers a bright opening show at
The Treasure Island Community
Center through November 4.
We'll introduce members George
Greenfield, Claire Paultre and
Curtis Sneary. Later we will meet
Ron Reid and Rosemary Utzinger.
The ink-jet digital photographs
of George Greenfield demand
attention because of their brilliant
colors and creative compositions.
George is exhibiting "Undersea
Fantasy", "Jungle Fantasy" and
"Untitled". Perhaps his most
intriguing entryis"OrchidFantasy"
filled with cerise petals and
streamers against a background of
rich blues and greens.
Claire Paultre brings us her clear,
fresh watercolors in two serene
landscapes, "Sunflower Field", and
"Causeway". In contrast, Claire
uses warm, rich hues in "Still Life
with Oleander" and even more
dramatically for the appetizing
"Choux Rouge". Here in a strong
composition, she captures a freshly
picked bunch of green celery and
deep red vegetables, grouped
around a pewter pitcher.
Curtis Sneary offers his
Impressionistic acrylic paintings of
St. Petersburg's downtown streets.
He has two views of Central
Avenue where lovely trees shade
classic terra cotta-hued buildings.
Curtis then takes the viewer to the
park for an old "Beach Drive Hotel"
and "Summer Bike Ride on Beach
Drive" where he captures the sun-
dappled grass of the waterfront
Plan to see our show at the
Community Center located on
106th Avenue, just one block east
of Gulf Boulevard. Call 547-4575,

Public Comment

& Council / Commission Quotes

September 28, 2010
St. Pete Beach City Commission Meeting

"You may have noticed some large pipes on the Bay-
way."- City Manager Mike Bonfield, explaining the pipes
on the side of the Pinellas Bayway are part of Progress
Energy's project for replacing an underwater line. The
pipes are part of the utility's work along Gulf Boulevard
to install backup lines for a main feed coming from under
the water, which was no longer in service.

"I disagree with the general increase in the mill-
age...I understand the need of the reserve fund to
increase but I don't think so in this particular econ-
omy."- Mayor Mike Finnerty- on adopting the roll back
rate for taxes and favoring keeping the 2009-2010 millage
rate instead. The adopted roll back rate of 2.6718 is .1884
mills higher.

Can we please remember we are talking about one
pot of money? Commissioner Al Halpern- as the com-
mission discussed the merits of including various items
and how much to include to cover the items in the bud-

"I have seen people crossing the street with them
and wow do they get your attention."- Commissioner
Bev Garnett, on the new crossing flags available at some
cross walks along Gulf Boulevard.
"But $30,000 to spend in our day when we have peo-
ple homeless and children not fed...I am asking you
what is more Christian to give (money to families
for Christmas gifts) or spend this money for very
nice decorations?"-Resident Mimi Gewanter, suggest-
ing spending the holiday lights money on gifts for families
in need instead of citywide holiday lights.

"When I was deployed I missed the birth of my first
daughter."- An excerpt from a U.S. soldier's letter who
expressed appreciation for a Support Our Troops care
package that helped him as he was away from home dur-
ing the birth of his child.

"I would not take a house note out that I did not
understand."- Vice Mayor Jim Parent- during the dis-
cussion on reviewing potential upcoming legal fees and
reflecting those anticipated costs in the city's budget.

any extra work," Chief Robert Vincent, about extending

ber Jennifer Salmon, about extending liquor sales within the
city by an hour.

"I'll personally give somebody a $50 reward for (in-

wildlife. That's intolerable,"- Councilman Sam Hender-

ItStoroscoDe Guide

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Do not
be too quick to judge situations this
week. Jumping to conclusions will
prove unwise. People will surprise
you. Loved ones who usually act one
way will take an unexpected tone.
And you have a couple of tricks up
your sleeve, too. So it's just best not
to make any assumptions.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). People
who think they know quite a lot
about a certain world will give you an
earful of information. You'll definitely
learn something from what you hear,
but you shouldn't take it as gospel.
There are many ways to accomplish
what you're trying to do. Your way
is as good as anyone else's. Follow
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21).
You'll be working with one you know
well this week. Though the two of
you are mutually supportive and
understanding, this relationship is
still a lot of work. Knowing that it's
not all going to be easy will help
prepare you for what's ahead. With
the right attitude, you'll be able to
turn a challenge into your next great
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19).
Friends encourage you, but enemies
motivate you like crazy. There are
certain people who bring out your
competitive edge and light a fire in
your belly. You just want to show
them once and for all how good you
can really be. Channel the natural
rivalry in a positive direction by
letting it spur you to new heights.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18).
Buckle down and get things done
before you meet up with friends or
begin doing your family's bidding.
Neglecting your own work to focus
on others might seem like a minor
sacrifice now, but it will become a
major issue later. Take care of all of
your responsibilities first, especially
the ones that have to do with only

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You're
so intuitive now that you could
have conflicts with the more logical-
minded people you know. They just
can't believe that you could make a
decision without going through the
same processes they go through. They
might even make you think you're
wrong. Make it easy on yourself --
continue to follow your gut.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). You're
still not totally sure about your
next move, so don't make one! Keep
writing down the ideas, talking,
asking questions, researching and
brainstorming. Let this phase play
out for as long as it takes to form
a plan you are 100 percent certain
about and can really stand behind.
TAURUS (April 20 M.i\y 2" I). Go often
to the one who is an endless source
of positive energy. It's a relationship
that will sustain you through the
highs and lows. This person will
buoy you when you get tired, refuel
you when you've used your resources
and, most importantly, make you
laugh at yourself when you get overly
GEMINI (Ml.,y 21-June 21). You
have your own agenda. So if someone
makes an unusual number of
demands on you, you'll likely react
poorly, unless that person happens to
be charming, beautiful andhumorous.
Then you'll gladly change your plans
in order to do his or her bidding. As
driven as you are, you also need to be
CANCER (June 22-July 22).
Love has worked in different ways
throughout your life. You were loved
by someone else before you knew
how to love yourself. Later, you loved
yourself first and others followed
suit. You continue to teach others
how to treat you. This week, you'll
be re-creating relationships and
learning new ways to give and take.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You have a

strong sense about whom you should
trust. You can't put your finger on the
exact reason why one person seems
credible and another does not. It has
to do with micro-expressions you read
and intangible things you just know.
You don't have to be able to explain
it, but do follow those instincts -- they
are right on.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). There
are always those around who are
blessed with such outstanding
abilities it almost doesn't seem fair.
But don't compare yourself to them
or anyone else. What you have is
pretty great and very workable. In
fact, it's all you'll ever need in order
to succeed. Find people to help you
use your talent effectively.
This Week's Birthdays: Stellar
opportunities are presented to you,
most notably in the next 10 weeks.
You'll experience a financial spike in
November and August. In December,
loved ones inspire you to create
and express yourself. With an open
heart, you give unconditionally.
Your personal life blossoms as you
reach out to interesting people whose
lives will be altered for the better by
knowing you. You play matchmaker
with good results in March. Additions
to the family arrive in May.

Opponents also said that the amend-
ment would put over a quarter mil-
lion Floridians out of work, reduce
the state's "economic output" by $34
million, and cost taxpayers money
with each referendum. Finally, the
Citizens for Lower Taxes and Stron-

purport that amendment advocates
"want to stop growth at any costs"
and "may encourage sprawl."
Those in favor of Amendment Four
say amendment opponents "will tell
any lie, distort any fact and use 'scare
tactics'... to keep voters from having
a say about proposed large scale de-

comparison between St. Pete Beach's
use of its charter to give voters a say
in some comprehensive plan deci-
sions and how the statewide Amend-

In 2006 the city commission adopted guide-
lines for the reimbursement of attorney's fees
and costs incurred by city officials in success-
fully defending legal matters arising out of
the performance of their official duties while
serving a public purpose.
The commission discussed the need to re-
imburse the legal fees to encourage people

#16 Establish a location where
positive community activities can
occur with police involvement. Re-
quest the City acquire a building
suitable for a multi-purpose facility
and office for police substation.
The city built the 49th Street
Neighborhood Center.

#17 Increase police presence.
Strengthen the foot patrol program
and initiate Community Policing
where officers visit businesses.
According to Chief of Police Rob
Vincent, at that time then-chief
Curt Willocks asked the depart-
ment's two lieutenants to increase
their communication with business
owners in the area and add bike
patrols on 49th Street.
"We no longer do the bike patrols;
we don't have any resources to do
them now," Chief Vincent says, but
added that officers still communi-
cate with businesses.

#18 Increase visibility and safety
around businesses and parking ar-
eas. Establish a "speed zone strictly
enforced area" on 49th Street and
Tangerine Greenway.
"They set the speed at 25 miles per
hour, but that's about it," Lieuten-
ant Howard Coombs said. ChiefVin-
cent pointed out at a recent council
meeting that the city set that speed
limit set outside accepted rules for
setting speed limits. However, "it's
one of the safer streets," Lieuten-
ant Coombs added.

#19 Provide more safe and attrac-
tive walking areas. Determine
whether closing off Tangerine Ave-
nue between 54th and 55th Streets
is advantageous.
That was done when the city ex-
panded the park in 2000, according
to city documents.

Beach Tax Rate
Increase Coming

The St. Pete Beach City commission
debated funding trimming trees,
putting more money for extra legal
fees, and restoring funding for extra
special events in town from the $21.6
million budget, which passed on
second and final reading on Sept. 28.
With two more law suits pending
and anticipated cost projections on
existing litigation the commission
decided to place $35,000 more in the
extra legal account leaving $395,000
for reserves. They decided to revisit
the budget regularly. They did not
make a decision to fund trimming
the Washingtonian Palms or to fund
extra special events to help promote
the community and its businesses.
Holiday lights and Mondays at the
library stayed in the budget.
The 2.6718 operating millage passed
on second and final reading on Sept.
28. The operating millage rate is
.1884 mills higher than the current
year's millage 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
Web site at http://www.stpetebeach.
About $2.5 million in capital projects
are planned for next year, some of
which are funded by grants, state and
county programs. The projects include
debt payments on city hall and the
community center; sidewalk, street
and seawall repairs/replacements;
lighting for Horan Park; landscaping
on the Bay Way and Gulf Boulevard;
and improving energy efficiency in
city buildings.

City Council Workshop

Charter Review Committee

Gulfport city council met to discuss the Charter Review Committee's
recommendations for changes to the city charter.

Proposed changes include:

Extraterritorial Powers
Section 103 deals with the sale of property. The Charter Review Commit-
tee changed it to deal with real property, but City Clerk Lesely DeMuth and
City Attorney Andrew Salzman suggested changing it to "dedicated proper-
ties." Dedicated property refers to properties like parks, beach areas, and other
properties with dedicated purposes, according to city staff.
Real property refers also to other lands owned by the city, such as lots unused
by the city.
If council approves these changes, voters will have a say if the city wants to
sell dedicated property, but not to sell non-dedicated real property.
Councilwoman Jennifer Salmon said she favored placing a size restriction on
the section, suggesting 10 acres as a point where the city would need a refer-
"If you want to create a commercial area, that's one way to do it," Vice-Mayor
Michele King said, giving a hypothetical example of a Verizon call center on
49th Street.
Council ultimately decided to accept the CRC's suggestions on this part of the

Council Vacancies
Currently, if a councilmember misses any portion of three meetings in a row or
six out of 12 meetings over the course of 12 months, that council seat becomes
vacant unless the council votes to excuse the absence. The CRC suggests re-
moving the council's ability to excuse absences as well as the three meetings in
a row portion of the section. The CRC also suggests removing the work sessions
from the section.
Council ultimately agreed to allow members to miss a portion of the meetings
but otherwise not accept the CRC's suggestions.

Other Charter Changes
The CRC also wants to insert language into the charter that the council may
not fill any council vacancies before the next regularly scheduled council meet-
Councilman David Hastings suggested the city change language about audits
to read "certified" public accountant instead of "qualified" public accountant.
The CRC asked council to amend the list of actions that required an ordinance
to include real property sales and leases longer than a decade.
The CRC also suggested moving the election to November rather than March.
Councilwoman Jennifer Salmon suggested changing the terms to three years
each and having primary elections for each ward. Two other council members
and Mayor Mike Yakes followed Councilmember David Hastings' sentiments
and said they were content to leave the wording the way it stood,

"This is the Courtland Yarborough rule because Courtland Yarbourgh ran and
moved and they were trying to stop him from doing that. It was a freak thing,
and I don't think freak things should be in the charter," Vice-Mayor Michele
King about a proposed change saying that someone must live in his ward for
one year before running. All other councilmemebrs disagreed with her.

The city will wrap up their decisions about the city charter at the
5 p.m. November 2 workshop.

Attorney Keith Sanders, Handles Foreclosure Defense and
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 case and under-
stand that I have been

One Way for Safety
ST. PETE BEACH- The city com-
mission approved Sept. 28 on second
and final reading making an alley be-
tween 16th Avenue and 17th Avenue
one-way south bound. The Pass-A-

request for the one-way alleyway
between the church and the Montes-

enter from 17th Avenue and exit on
16th Avenue, which is already a one-

Congress Takes a Hike
Congress adjourned a couple of
weeks ago so members could
get back to their districts and
campaign. They walked away from
a particular major issue that has a
great deal to do about our country's
economic recovery. Taxes. In short,
the majority of the members were
more concerned about them than us.
To argue and finally vote on whether
or not to let current tax rates expire
on December 31 and revert to higher
rates that were in effect seven years
ago is politically dangerous. Even
a compromise would be politically
dangerous. A compromise would
provide for higher taxes for some and
not others, notably higher incomes.
Generally speaking, Democrats favor
keeping the tax rates for all but those

Health Examination
* Children's Vision Care
* Dry Eye Care
* Cataract & Glaucoma
* Drivers License Exams

above $200,000 ($250,000 for joint
filers). Republicans, in general, favor
extending the cuts for a couple of
years and dealing with it later.
Right now Democrats are in trouble
and are slated to lose lots of seats
in both the House and Senate. This
may or may not happen, but voting
to raise taxes now on anyone could
be a disaster. Instead, the hoped for
tax increases could be voted after the
November elections by lame-duck
Democrats already voted out of office,
or still in office.
The problem is that businesses and
individuals are holding on to their
money, not spending, not investing,
until there is some certainty about
taxes among other things. Why
spend money now if you're going to
owe the federal government money
next year? Because taxes come first,

money has to be put aside now.
Many of the higher wage earners are
really small business people whose
income is calculated through their
businesses. That is, those taxes come
right out of the business.
Of course, tax rates aren't the only
issues. Health care costs associated
with the new health care bill are just
now being understood. Remember,
few congressmen (women) read the
nearly 3,000 page bill. As House
leader Nancy Pelosi put it, "you have
to enact it to find out what's in it".
Now, we're finding out.
Then there's the annual deficit and
the total debt to worry about. Do you
pay for it with more taxes money
that goes to a bigger government
rather than invested in a bigger
economy or do you stimulate the
economy by fewer taxes which often
have the effect of bringing in more
money to the federal treasury since
government gets a slice of ALL
business done?
All in all, Congress has been
irresponsible. Governments growing,
even booming, while the private sector
is shrinking. Stimulative spending
has been aimed more at political
projects than getting the economy
going again. While we appear to be
facing deflation now, inflation might
be around the corner. Inflation will
steal our dollars faster than anything
we can do.
Congress may be adrift, but so are

You & THE


By Robert J. Myers, Esq.
How Should My
Business be Set
Up? (Part II)
In our last article, we examined
together the general legal
requirements of a sole proprietorship
and general partnership. In this
article, we will examine the general
legal aspects of a limited partnership
and a Florida Corporation.
A. Limited Partnership
1. Alimitedpartnership is similar to
a general partnership. The primary
difference is that some partners are
designated as "limited" partners and,
as such, are normally not personally
liable for the debts and obligations of
the partnership, except to the extent
of their contribution of capital to the
partnership. A limited partner is a
passive investor, and is prohibited
from participating actively in the
management of the partnership
business. If a limited partner
participates in management, she/he
can lose the benefit of limited liability
and, instead, be treated as a general
partner for purposes of determining
liability for partnership debts and
2. A limited partnership must
have at least one general partner
and at least one limited partner.
The general partner of a limited
partnership has unlimited liability
for the partnership's debts and
3. Like a general partnership, the
income of a limited partnership is
passed through to the partners, and
reported on their individual income
tax returns.
4. A limited partnership is
organized by filing a written
certificate of limited partnership in
the Office of the Secretary of State in
Tallahassee, Florida. Normally, the
limited partners are specified in the
certificate of limited partnership and
in a separate limited partnership
agreement, which may be more
detailed than the certificate of
limited partnership. A Florida

limited partnership must file an
annual report and pay an annual
fee to the Florida Secretary of State,
and receive a certificate of authority
to conduct business as a limited
B. Corporation
1. A corporation is a separate legal
entity or "person" for purposes of
both state law and federal income tax
law. A corporation may be formed
by any number of individuals, other
corporations, or other entities.
2. The owners of a corporation
are "shareholders." Normally,
business policies are dictated by a
board of directors, which is elected
by the shareholders. In Florida,
a corporation may have as few as
one director. Normally, directors
are elected annually, at an annual
meeting of shareholders.
3. Normally, the routine operations
of the corporation are managed by
the corporation's officers, who are
elected periodically by the board of
directors. In Florida, a corporation
must have a president, secretary,
and treasurer, and may have one
or more vice presidents or assistant
officers. One person may hold two (2)
or more offices.
4. Corporations are required to hold
annual meetings of shareholders, at
which the shareholders may elect
5. For federal income tax purposes,
a corporation is taxed as a separate
entity, and income and losses of the
corporation are not passed to its
shareholders, unless the corporation
makes an "S election."
6. A corporation is formed by filing a
corporate charter, known as "articles
of incorporation," with the office of
the Secretary of State in Tallahassee,
Florida. The articles of incorporation
must contain various information
specified by statute, including a
unique corporate name, a statement
of the number of shares of stock
that the corporation is authorized
to issue, the par value (if any) of the
stock, the duration of the corporation
(if other than perpetual), the general
purposes for which the corporation
is initially authorized (which may be
stated to include in the transaction of
any or all lawful business for which
corporations may be incorporated
under Florida law), the name of an
initial registered office, the street
address of an initial registered office

where service of process can b made
upon the corporation, the name of
directors, and the name and street
address of the incorporator. The
corporation is required to file an
annual report and pay an annual
fee to the Secretary of State in
order to maintain its standing as a
7. After the articles of incorporation
are formed, the board of directors
holds an initial organizational
meeting, at which it elects officers,
adopts bylaws, and takes other
organizational actions. The bylaws
consist of a written document
specifying the "rules" under which
the corporation will be governed and
8. Generally, ownership interests
in a corporation may be transferred
through a sale of stock, although the
transfer of stock may be restricted by
agreement or by law.

this article and other related legal
topics. This column outlines general
legal principles and is not intended to
give you legal advice. If you have a
specific question about the law, please

Call to Artists
The Gulfport Community Players'
own Back Door Theater has just
recently been re-painted in a sky-
blue color trimmed with white. They
need someone to paint their name
on the northeast side of the building
and maybe even add some of their
own artwork to this vast canvas. This
theater is located at 1619 49 Street
S. in Gulfport. They are open to all
comers that may want to tackle this
Drop by the Back Door Theater and
look it over. Keep in mind that this
is a community theater building,
owned by the Gulfport Community
Players. It is used for rehearsals,
plays, building sets, and meetings.
It is rather tall, so you shouldn't be
afraid of heights. Like many concrete
buildings, the surface is not smooth.
The Players don't expect you to do
this for free (although that would be
great!). Your time, labor, materials,
and expertise are worth something.
Drop by Eileen's Resale Boutique at
5401 Gulfport Boulevard after you've
looked over the building and had time
enough to come up with any ideas.
Eileen will be glad to talk to you and
see what you may have come up with.
Please give her an estimate also. The
final decision as to who gets to do this
will be Eileen's and the Board's.
You must submit your ideas to
Eileen at her store by October 10.
You can call her at 727-322-1422 for
more information.

How Green Was
Our City?
Sam so tired of lip service about
the environment. If I hear one
more person tell me Gulfport's
going green, I may slap them with
their reusable bags and stuff them in
a recycle bin.
Gulfport isn't green, people. It isn't
even close. Oh, the city's trying. But
it's overlooking some critical areas
that could really use some attention. I
applaud the city replacing light bulbs
and putting more energy-efficient
features in buildings, I do, but that's
just a slice of the pie when it comes to
the environment.
Let's start with grass. Ever ask
yourself why so many city landscapes
still feature grass as the prominent
feature, especially since that grass
takes chemicals, staff, and money
to keep green? Ever wonder many
households worth of taxes the city
could use for other things instead if
they ripped out the grass and put in
ground cover that didn't require so
much money to keep up? Shouldn't
the city be doing that anyway, given
the nitrogen issues surrounding
fertilizer, the "green" stance at least
three councilmembers advocate, and
the decreased revenues from tax
Can anyone sufficiently explain
why, when one councilmember is
going to school for environmental
studies, another one advocates
green building regulations, and yet
another has "green" landscaping
days to show residents how to have
environmentally-friendly landscapes,
so much of city property is covered
with beautiful green grass? Clam
Bayou has grass surrounding its
perimeter, and every time the city
cuts it the clippings blow into the
bayou. The marina is edged with
grass; has anyone even questioned
the result of chemically-treated grass
clippings going into Boca Ciega Bay?
Here's another thought: open the
windows. Yes, I know it's Florida.
I know that from April through

October this is not practical. But
city hall windows don't open. Yes, I
know it's more convenient to have
the temperature regulated by an
air conditioner. But wouldn't a little
fresh air be nice, too?
How about the cleaning staff? In all
our talk about clean air and water,
has anyone put into the cleaning
staffs contract that they should use
the least corrosive chemicals to clean
city buildings, or are they using
hydrochloric acid toilet bowl cleaners
to clean the bowls at night?
I'm wondering if anyone at city hall
thinks about these things. I know that
the city clerk has started encouraging
downloading the council meeting
agendas rather than printing them
out (that's how the Gabber accesses
the agendas), and I know there's been
some talk of turning off computers at
night. I think that's great, I do. Of
course, these moves also have solid
fiscal gain for the city- less paper and
less energy.
It's not that the city's doing a horrible
job at going green; it's that there
seems to be a disconnect in common
sense. We'll change out all our light
bulbs and worry about what type of
roof to put on when that happens,
but we don't offer paperless billing
for water bills. That's how many
thousands of envelopes and paper
bills every month?
Realize it's easy to get caught up in all
the things the city could be doing, but
it seems like unless a councilmember
pushes for something, it doesn't
happen. There's no independent
thinking going on inside city hall.
Now, I'm certain this only applies in
this situation, but still- Public Works
director Don Sopak had to tell each
department to come up with ideas for
conserving resources. With the rest
of the world already looking for ways
on its own, why did this even need to
be a directive?
I don't think that every "save
the planet" idea is a good one or
necessarily right for Gulfport, and
I freely admit I'm rather pragmatic
about my own environmental
practices- I try to avoid driving

wherever I can but come June my
air conditioner goes on and stays on
through August. But I don't claim to
be an environmentalist. The city's
certainly starting to pat themselves
on the back for things they're doing,
and while it's great, it isn't enough.
They're where most of us were a long
time ago. The IT director came up
with a plan to turn off computers at
night. Are you kidding me?
Rip out your pretty grass, city hall,
and then we'll talk.

Get Ready for Halloween

By Melissa Lattman
Finn, 5, shows a mask he worked on at Saturday morning's Get Ready for Halloween at the
St. Pete Beach Public Library.

St. Pete Beach Children's librarian
Maryjane Hyatt shared with patrons
easy to make, create or pull together
Halloween costumes Saturday
morning at the library. She offered
many creative, low cost ideas for
families to make together with adult
supervision. Some costumes included
dollar/discount store items like colored
plastic helmets or various antennas.
Head pieces could also be made with
paper plates with some ribbon to hold
them on and markers to decorate
them. Boxes, poster board and colored
pillow cases were used for bodies.
Some complete ideas included be a
builder with a yellow plastic helmet,
blue jeans and a flannel shirt. Be cool
as a refrigerator using poster board or
a box for the front and back and add
a handle. Or make the poster boards
the front and back of a playing card.
Want to be a present? Put a bow on
your head and put wrapping paper on
the poster board or box.

The Grounds Crew

by Leigh Clifton
Gulfport Teens showed off their gardening skills last Monday night at the Rec Center.
They are: (back-row ,left to right) Josiah Richardson, 12, Vincent Sicilian, 12, Dylan
McComis, 14, Kyle Christensen, 13, Adriana Blaine, 15, Caitlin Davis, 13, (with rake) Ryan
Stanley, 13 (glasses) and Devon Coppola, 12 (center)

At first they trickled in; the kids who showed up for Teen Night at the Rec
Center last Monday night. But with the bribe of pizza urging them to partici-
pate, (what kid can resist pizza?) eight teens showed up to help John Lapham
and Justin Shea trim bushes, rake and spruce up the front of the Rec Center
earlier this week. The teens are part of the Teen Night group that meets Mon-
day, Wednesday and Friday nights from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Lapham said that
by the kids doing some of the necessary bush trimming and raking, they save
Gulfport's Grounds and Maintenance department some money, frees them up
for other things and most importantly, gets the kids into a community service
"This is good hard work for these kids and it helps out the City. We kind of

wasn't sure how many kids would show up tonight after they saw how hard

with a sly smile.
Living in close proximity to
her work has other advan-
tages; she can and will stop
by an unruly student's house
and talk to them and their
parents, if necessary. Espe-
cially if she used to "cross"
the parents during their el-
ementary school days.
"I don't have any problem
going to their houses and
speaking to the parents
about their kids. Some of
these parents I knew when
they were kids and I've seen
them grow up to be parents
themselves. Sometimes their
kids will give me a hard time
in the beginning, but by the
end of the year, they tell me
thank you. That makes my
job pretty ,'.. Il'
Ms. Moseley often recog-
nizes a troubled child right
away; they might walk
with an attitude or seem 4C

them not to be upset. I try to
make them smile. I tell them
'put the thought in your head
that if you cheer up, you'll
have a good day at school.' I
always try to stay positive in
my life and I try to tell them
the same thing. They're all
pretty special."
Sometimes kind words
just aren't enough however.
While Ms. Moseley has never
had a serious alter-
S cation in her
\s 14 years, if
S she sees one
group fussing
with another,
she'll walk up
to the school
and tell them

helps cross the street during
the school year.
"God didn't bless me per-
sonally with kids, but I think
he gave me this big capacity
to love and I want to share
that with these kids," she
says appreciatively.
Ms. Moseley has helped
some of the kids in the neigh-
borhood in other ways; she
has often given out school
supplies purchased with her
own money so the kids can
be prepared for school.
"I always tell them 'you
ARE somebody, you CAN be
somebody!' I want them to
have every opportunity to do
There are a few that have
fallen through the cracks
that Ms. Moseley still thinks
about from time to time.
"I had this boy; he is the un-
cle of one of my current stu-
dents. He was SO smart. I
always told him that I would
help him if he wanted to go to
college. I wanted to see him
go on to school and I would
have happily helped him any
way I could, to get a scholar-
ship or whatever. But he fell
in with the wrong crowd and

it just broke my heart. He
could have been a senator or
a lawyer, he was that smart.
I've seen him around and he
seems to be getting better,"
she says with a little disap-
pointment in her voice
Asked about her age, Ms.
Moseley smiles broadly.
"I'm a proud 73 years old!
God gave me these years and
I am truly grateful. I can't
understand these people
who deny or lie about their
age. That's like telling God
you don't want those years
he has given you. That's not
being grateful to God."
At that moment, Gulfport
Elementary Vice -Principal
Suzanne Hester happens to
walk up with some students
who need to cross the street
and was asked what she
thought about Ms. Moseley.
Her response was immediate
and glowing.
"She really cares about our
kids and she tried to keep
them safe and constantly
reminds them to be careful.
She's the best," Hester says.
Ms. Moseley has another
profession that includes help-
ing others and it involves
blue hair. She's been a "fan
host" at Tropicana Field for
21 years in section 313-315
and she loves it. She is in-
stantly recognizable for the
huge blue afro (or sometimes
straight) wig she wears when
she works.
"Once in a while, I'll forget
my blue hair and the fans
will really give me a hard
time about it," she chuckles.
"Then I have to go get it out
of my locker and put in on,
because people don't recog-
nize me without it!"
Ms. Moseley has made a
noble profession of assisting
others, whether its children
crossing the street or big-
ger ones enjoying a baseball
game. Her wide smile and
dancing eyes sparkle as she
says one last thing.
"Let the little things go...

Hound of the Baskervilles: A Fall Favorite

By Cathy Salustri
The Hound of the Basker-
villes, based on a Sherlock
Holmes novel, is the perfect
autumn mystery. With a few
minor exceptions, this well-
acted play shows local audi-
ences just how well a com-
munity theatre can do a play
that doesn't have the glitz
and glamour of a splashy
musical or recent Broadway
I must admit, I didn't get
worked up over reviewing
this St. Petersburg Little
Theatre production. With
some recurring talent that,
in the past, left me less than
impressed and a play that
didn't promise high drama
or roll-on-the-floor comedy,
I didn't know why I should
surrender two hours of my
Friday night to it.

Thankfully, I found a reason.
Director David Middleton
did a phenomenal job with
the piece, giving audiences
a classic performance of this
play. It makes a nice Hal-
loween piece aside American
Stage's The Mystery of Irma
Vep; American Stage goes
scary-campy for the season
while St. Petersburg Little
Theatre plays its straight.
This well-performed play
entertains throughout most
of its two-hour plus run. It
falls down in a few places,
but director David Middle-
ton's direction, coupled with
some strong acting and well-
executed technical effects,
props it up as it goes along.
Among some of the best per-
formances onstage are those
of Steve Bell and Olga Cruse,
who play Mr. and Mrs. Barry-
more, respectively. Bell's dry

portrayal of the droll butler
and Kruse's intuitive acting
style make their all-to-brief
moments onstage delightful.
Victor Carr as Watson sur-
prises and delights as well.
Carr, a regular on local com-
munity theatre stages, never
set me on fire with his per-
formances, but I see now that
his on-again, off-again per-
formance history was not his
fault, because under Middel-
ton's tutelage Carr delivers
his strongest performance
yet. He carries the show in
many places, and does it with
admirable showmanship and
I wish I could say the same
for Tom Campbell, who has
appeared with increasing
regularity on local stages.
His performance, sadly, does
not measure up to the other
actors, staying static and flat
as we watch other characters
blossom into their characters.
Even Charlene Gavens' Lady
Agatha, whose thick accent
troubled me at the play's on-
set, grew into a commanding
Sherlock Holmes himself,
played by Bruce Taylor,
plays his role to perfection.
There is nothing more to add
to describe a performance
which so well fits the role.
Throughout this play, the
strongest performances are
also the most strictly inter-

preted; there is no room here
for bold new ideas, and Mid-
dleton and Technical Director
Frank Hale don't even try it,
which is much to their credit.
This is old-school playwriting
and old-school theatre suits
it best; if that doesn't appeal
to you, either go with a mind
open to learning to appreci-
ate it or don't go at all.
The play itself is a solid
one, with a little spookiness
and humor as well as the
requisite chunk of mystery
and subterfuge. This is a de-
lightful fall piece, at the end
of which I had every desire
to wrap myself in a chenille
throw in front of a blazing fire
and read every Sherlock Hol-
mes' mystery by candlelight.
St. Petersburg Little Theatre
has somehow managed to
take a play I had absolutely
no desire to see and turn it
into something worthy of my
time and money. In the end,
it opened my mind to some-
thing new.
And that, coupled with an
enjoyable evening, is what
good theatre is really all

lights all roads so that I can attain my goal, you
who give me the divine gifts to forgive and for-
get all evil against me and that in all instances
of my life you are with me, I want in this short
prayer to thank you for all things and confirm
once again that I never want to be separated
from you, even in spite of all material illusions. I
wish to be with you, in eternal glory. Thank you
for your mercy toward me and mine. G.B.
