49th Street
Redevelopment:
Quality of Life
Third in a Three-Part Series
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 im-
prove the appearance of the area.
This week we examine how the
city dealt with issues relating to
increasing quality of life along 49th
Street.
The current councilmember for
Ward Four, Sam Henderson, spoke
to the changes in the plan over the
past decade.
"Such a plan is bound to be dy-
namic in nature as old concerns are
addressed and new ones appear.
The common thread is that all of
the proposals, changes and addi-
tions to the plan have had one goal
in mind: making 49th Street safer,
more attractive, more conducive to
business and to generally
See 49th Street, page 45


Second Candidate Forum
at the Gulfport Casino
By Cathy Salustri
For the second Thursday in a row, Gulfport opened up
the Casino to voters. Two weeks ago the city hosted a
forum on Amendment Four; last week the city opened its
doors to candidates running in local and state elections.
Many candidates had tables manned by volunteers while
others spent their time talking with constituents face-
to-face.
Local highlights included:
. Schoolboard candidates Jim Jackson and Lew Williams,
who addressed issues dealing with fundamental schools
and bullying.
At-large county commission contenders Calvin Harris
and Norm Roche answered questions about county layoffs,
hurricane preparation, the practicality of light rail, and
Amendment Four.

Kids Walk and Roll for Safety and Exercise


by Leign u;llton
Students from Gulfport Elementary hold up their 'Who's Walking Now' signs as they walked to school last Wednesday morning. They were
participating in the Walk and Roll Day for safety.
Gulfport Elementary participated in the International Walk and Roll Day last Wednesday as kids walked and biked to
school in an effort to be healthier and get more exercise. Over a hundred kids, some accompanied by parents and volunteers,
met at the Wachovia parking lot Wednesday morning for the event sponsored by All Children's Hospital. Mary Mahoney,
Director of Marketing at All Children's, was on hand to walk with the kids, who wore bright green reflective wrist bands
and carried signs that said Look Who's Walking. They walked in a large group up to the school, where they were greeted by
Vice-Principal Suzanne Hester, who high-fived them as they walked past.
"All Children's is really pleased to sponsor Walk and Roll Day because we want to emphasis safety while kids are walking
or biking to school. Mahoney said. "We have four counties with 55 schools participating. We want to get out the safety mes-
sage.

Gulfport Throws Itself a 100th Birthday Bash

by Leigh Clifton I r"

As part of Gulfport's Centennial '
Celebration, the Historical Soci- -. -
ety help a giant birthday party
on the grounds of the Historical
Museum last Saturday. Almost r
1000 people stopped by during "
the four -hour soiree to eat fried '
mullet dinners, hot dogs and cold i
drinks and of course to get a slice
of Gulfport's birthday cake. After -
the Star Spangled Banner was S
sung by Elizabeth Brown-Wor-
thington and friend Rebe KKah to
open the festivities, Mayor Mike
Yakes welcomed everyone to *
the party. The volunteers of the
Historical Society were dressed
in period clothing and gave tours
throughout the museum and
grounds. The annual Mullet Toss



















Swas a favorite stop for most patrons; a few
were brave enough to toss the mullet into
Sa baby pool full of water for prizes. Con-
S ner Wesa won in kid's category, tossing
from 35 feet. Damon Weisz threw his from
a whopping 54 feet and won the adult's
class. Both received fishing poles as prizes.
-,.Members of Gulfport, the Musical ser-
S"enaded the crowd with selections from the
CER" show. There was a wonderfully colorful
chalk coloring contest and a bouncy house
Sfor the little ones. Several vendors set up
'.shop on the sidewalk and sold their wares.
The Trolley ran all day, taking folks on a
historic tour of Gulfport. People dropped
by all afternoon long and the weather was
just spectacular. Four birthday cakes were
gone within minutes.
S.. .. Happy Birthday Gulfport!

stands with the rest of the Society's volunteers in front of the
Human Sundial last Saturday morning. The sundial is made
up of blocks of stone, whose different lengths correspond
with the amount of sunlight each month of the year gets.
The stones are laid out in a semi-circular fashion and there
are two sets; the inside one for Eastern Standard Time,
and the outer one for Daylight Savings Time. Dockmaster
of Gulfport Marina Dennis Frain calculated the coordinates
of latitude and longitude, which were then sent to Scotland
to a company TheHumanSolstice.com that determined the
correct size of the stones. Buried 15 inches into the ground,
the numbers on the stones are exactly six inches high. The
Sundial is surprisingly accurate; several people stood on it
and got the correct time.

Brown stands on the steps of the Historical Society building
in Gulfport. She is Gulfport's pre-eminent researcher to
Gulfport's history and has written several books on the
subject.

Members of the Treasure Island
Art Guild continue their month-
long Fall exhibit at the Community
Center of Treasure Island through
November 4.
Ron Reid, working in oil,
introduces the viewer to his bold,
direct style in "Peace", his strong
portrait of Christ, as well as two
large landscapes, "Florida" and
"John's Pass". Lastly, Ron gives us
an old farmhouse, an American flag
and a puzzle in fl1.-n.dng Fences"
in which two young children and
the family cow stare at the broken
fence while parents stand at the
window either weeping or maybe
laughing?
Rosemary Utzinger share the
memories of her travels beautifully
executed in oil. She captures a
costumed Russian girl in "Oksana
In the Garden", warm red tiles
in "Spanish Rooftops", and
sunflowers in "Autumn's Reward".
Rosemary's beautiful composition,
"Morning Encounter" takes us to
a French street scene with a man
and woman silhouetted against the
dark doorway of a sun-drenched
building.
Plan to see these works and
those of George Greenfield, Claire
Paultre and Curtis Sneary at the
Community Center located on
106th Avenue, just one block east
of Gulf Boulevard. Call 547-4575,

Jillian Katz, Gulfport: "Oh, the
Rays didn't win? I don't really follow
baseball or pay much attention to it,
but if I was to pick a team, I would
pick the Phillies. I know a lot of people
who like them and follow them. Also,
I'm from Miami originally, so I'm
more of a football fan. I follow the
Dolphins; we don't usually follow the
Rays in Miami."


Joshua Fredrickson, Gulfport:
"Anybody BUT the Yankees; I hate
those guys! I was pulling for the
Rays on Tuesday night but I'm
really a Minnesota Twin fan and the
Yankees really kicked our butt. I'd
like to have seen the Rangers go to
the show; they've never won a title
before. Tuesday night was their first
post-season victory. They're the last
major league baseball team to win a
post season series, but it's too bad it
came at the Ray's expense. I'd like to
see the Rangers continue on and win
the series. The way Cliff Lee pitched,
they deserved to win."


Gabber October 14 October 20, 2010


Rich Rosa, Indialantic Beach,
Florida: "The New York Mets? Just
kidding. I'm a Mets fan through and
through and I hate to say it but the
Phillies will win. It really hurts to
say that because I'm such a die-
hard Mets fan, but I really think
that they're going to win. I'm a big
baseball fan; I drove three hours
from the East coast to watch the
Rays play all three home games.
I thought they were really sloppy
tonight (Tuesday) and they made a
lot of mental mistakes. But once Cliff
Lee gets a couple of runs, the game
is over. I think it was probably over
by the third inning. The Rays got
beat by their own game. I think this
was their best and last chance to get
into the World Series; the team will
probably be broken up by next year
and they'll have to rebuild again. I
still hate the Yankees though. I don't
want to see them win. Hopefully the
Rangers will get them. Then it will
be a really interesting pitching duel
if Cliff Lee has to face Halladay and
the Phillies. They were both basically
traded for one another. That would
be pretty cool to see."


I-rRW


Joe Bruno, New Port Richey: "I
would pick the Yankees. I don't like
the Phillies at all. So if it's not going
to be the Rays, then I'll go with the
Yankees. I have a lot of family from
New York and I was a Yankees fan
as a kid growing up. I think they
probably have the best chance of
winning it all."

Several Events Celebrating

Gulfport's Centennial in October!


Community Band to
Kick off New Season
The South Pasadena Community
Band will launch the 2010-2011
concert season with a free concert
Thursday October 14 in Galatea
Garden on Sunset Drive South in
South Pasadena. The concert begins
at 7:30 p.m.
The title of the concert is "Themes
Like Old Times". Max Millspaugh,
Musical Director of the band, said
that the concert fits the park setting
and community gathering nicely.
"We will of course include some
rousing marches like "Washington
Greys March" along with "Selections
From Gypsy", and a collage of well
known theme songs of yesteryear."
Mr. Millspaugh commented that this
will be the third season the band has
used the band shell in the beautiful
garden setting. "Audiences have been
very complimentary of the setting and
the tradition of our community band
serenading the audience in a good old
fashioned out-of-doors concert."
Mayor Kathleen Peters said she
and the City's Administration
look forward to seeing neighbors
from throughout the greater South
Pasadena Community at the concert.
"Bring a chair or a blanket and join
us for the season opener," she said.
"We have plenty of free parking,
on-site restrooms, and an evening
of very nice free entertainment,"
commented the Mayor. Mayor Peters
also commented that in the event of
bad weather the concert will be held
at City Hall just north of the garden.
The band announced that concerts
for the season will be the second
Thursday of October, November,
December, February, March, April,
and May. The band does accept
guest appearance opportunities,
schedule permitting. A new venue
for the winter in-door concerts will be
announced at the concert in October.

Beach city commission authorized
the testing and cleaning on 10,080
linear feet of sewer line at a cost up
to $202,644, which comes from the
waste water capital improvement
plan. The project includes testing
for leaks and gas pockets on the
main sewer line followed by an
electromagnetic survey if needed.
The project, which will take several
months, does not include any pipe
repair or replacement.
Mayor Mike Finnerty said they
realized this is a situation that
needed to be addressed. "This is the
only line we have leaving the island
with sewage," he said.

Holy Name's Oktoberfest

Still Going Strong After 30 Years


By Leigh Clifton
Kids line up to throw balls at a bucket and try to win overstuffed animals at the Holy Name
Oktoberfest celebration last weekend.
Most Holy Name of Jesus Christ Catholic Church hosted their fall Oktoberfest
Festival last weekend. Probably due to the struggling economy attendance was
a bit lighter this year and some patrons were a bit disappointed with the quality
of the rides. For four year old Savannah Prestero however, everything was per-
fect; she alternated between the bouncing elephants and the carousel all night
long, followed in tow by her father Matt Prestero.
"I've been coming to this fair for 30 years. I used to come here when I was my
daughter's age and I graduated from Bogie so it's a tradition with me. She's been
happy just riding these two rides all night long," he said with a smile.

An Old-Fashioned Town Meetin'- Gulfport Incorporation Reenactment


By Leigh Clifton
October 12, 1910- The Gulfport
Casino was the meeting place. The
townspeople gathered together to
hear a proposal to name Gulfport of-
ficially as an incorporated town. The
men folk brought their banjos, guns
and moonshine hooch. The women
stood outside with signs demand-
ing the right to vote, loudly jeering
as the men walked into the building,
protesting their exclusion from the
town's decision -making. They even
brought a tuba!
The men walked into the hall, sit-
ting in the first two rows of seats.
The rest of the townspeople trickled
in and took seats behind the 30 im-
portant men of the little town soon
to be known as Gulfport. The meet-
ing was called to order by organizers
Alonzo Hoyt and William Woodworth
so aptly played by Bob Newcome and
Mike Baggs.
October 12, 2010- The Gulfport Ca-
sino is once again the meeting place.
The current town fathers are dressed
up in period costume; hats, boots,
muckers, even a gun or two, a banjo
and a jug of hooch. The women are
also dressed in the style of the period
and stood outside by the entrance,
loudly protesting and demanding
their right to vote.
Gulfport had itself an old fashioned
town meeting' last Tuesday night
as almost the whole town came to-
gether to reenact the meeting that
passed the first amendment declar-
ing Gulfport an official town. While
the residents watched the proceed-
ings, Bob Newcome, acting as Alonzo
Hoyt, brought the meeting to order.
"Men, can't you keep your women
quiet?' he razzed the ladies in the
back who were dressed as suffrag-
ettes. The Gulfport Historical Soci-
ety and Chamber of Commerce ladies
wore their costumes and waved signs
demanding equality.
"Boo!!" they responded in kind to
Newcome's jibe. They shouted out
demands for justice. The entire room
laughed appreciatively.
Locals Bob Worthington, Mayor
Mike Yakes (who played Elmer
Wintersgill, Gulfport's first elected
mayor), Bob Slone, Sam Henderson,
Mike Baggs and a whole host of oth-
er Gulfport notables all played char-

Suffragettes point fingers and yell for equality as the men go into the meeting.


acters from the past. It was hysteri-
cal and had the crowd laughing until
tears rolled. The women were incred-
ibly funny, interjecting anytime they
could to disrupt the "proceedings" of
the vote to incorporate.
"Let the women vote!" they chant-
ed.
The men, who were the only ones al-
lowed to vote in the meeting, sat in
the first two rows and talked among
themselves, passing around a large
jug of something resembling moon-
shine. Some carried long muskets,
rakes and walking sticks. They looked
and sounded so authentic that to lis-
ten to them argue about issues put
you right back to 1910.
In the first election in 1910, Gulfport
not only elected its first mayor but
also its first council. The reenactment
was extremely funny and completely


enthralled the over 250 people who
attended.
Mayor Mike, playing "that womaniz-
ing Elmer Wintersgill" stood in front
of the crowd and promised the women
the opportunity to vote.
Nl y door is always open to you la-
dies," he quipped. He and Newcome's
character, Alonzo Hoyt duked it out
to get elected. Newcome was properly
chauvinistic and really got the ladies
all riled up.
In the end, Mayor Elmer Win-
tersgill was elected the first mayor
of Gulfport, the name Gulfport was
adopted, the City Seal design was
accepted and women eventually got
their wish to vote. Thus the town of
Gulfport was born. It must have been
a lot of fun back then, because, by
God, it was hilarious last Tuesday
night. Only in Gulfport!

AtMtoroscoe Guide


LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Even
though everyone who is currently in
your life has something to offer you, in
order to move a special project ahead,
it will be necessary to expand your
network. Identify the specific assets
you need and what you are willing
to trade for them. Resolve to work
with those who have comparable or
greater resources.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You
know how to hustle and succeed.
However, this week you'll find it quite
refreshing not to have to sell yourself
too hard. There's a magical energy
around you that does the work for
you. All you have to do is show up
with a big smile on your face, and
people will start asking what makes
you so happy.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21).
It's fantastic how things develop,
although it might be overstating it to
say that your life imitates art. "More
often than not, life imitates craft. Who
among us can say that our experience
does not more closely resemble a
macrame plant holder than it does a
painting by Seurat Fran Lebowitz
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19).
Relationship luck will be a frequent
factor in your dealings, as you
connect with just the sort of people
who will highlight your skills,
complement your lifestyle and make
you feel accepted, useful and loved.
Of course, some could argue that
you made your own luck by being
so genuinely interested in others.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18).
You'll wrack up personal points by
stretching yourself emotionally.
It doesn't have to be a grandiose
achievement for you to derive great
satisfaction in achieving it. Maybe
you're the only one who will count
your achievements, but count they
do. This knowledge of your abilities
will boost your confidence.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20).
You'll take pride in honoring your


commitments. You may not be able to
do this in as timely a fashion as you
would like, but what counts is doing
it. When you're straightforward,
others adjust their expectations.
In the future, you'll use what you
learned to make accurate projections
and better manage your time.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). You
have ways of making people talk.
You don't even need to pressure
anyone. They see your smile and
feel your warmth and automatically
tell you more than you wanted to
know. Sometimes this annoys you,
but mostly you realize the value of
getting inside information. You really
understand what's important.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). It's
difficult to get your point across. Part
of the problem is that you simply
have too many points to convey
now. Whittle your message down to
one main idea at a time, and deal
them out slowly. Make sure the first
thing sinks in before you start the
second. By the week's end, you'll be
a master communicator.
GEMINI Il.ly 21-June 21). You
have definite opinions about what is
wrong and right -- for you. You are
also open-minded enough to realize
that other people have their own
standards, ethics and beliefs. You
are able to listen to others without
filtering what is being said through
your own morality code. This is true
empathy.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Your
feelings are neither logical nor
illogical. They just are. The same
goes for your intuition. And when you
have an intuitive hit that doesn't fit
into a logical structure or make sense
in the so-called "real world," it takes
courage to follow it. Luckily, you are
not short on courage or lacking in
faith.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Some
claim that taking the path of least
resistance shows weakness. To you,


SE IOL6ERY


the Gabr. vr husa ic 98


only a fool would waste energy going
against nature. That's why you'll flow
where the energy leads you, staying
open to new possibilities. You don't
need to prove your power. Yours is
a quiet strength that will win out in
the end.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You are
so loyal that it seems duplicitous to
consider options other than the ones
you have already chosen. However,
in a few areas of life, a review is in
order. Don't be afraid. Either you'll
figure out a better choice, or you'll be
more certain than ever that you have
already made the perfect decision for
you.
This Week's Birthdays: This
year, you'll find unconventional
channels to highlight your talents.
Money follows. The lengths to which
you go to research and study will be
impressive to VIPs. You could even
write a book about all you learn.
November brings the opportunity to
share beautiful, meaningful bits of
life with one of your favorite people.
December focuses on family and home
improvements. Investigate your
ancestry in the new year for insights
into creating vibrant relationships
and health.

Local Artists Auction Work to Benefit the

Senior Center, this Friday
By Leigh Clifton

24 local artists will
have works on display
at the Hickman The-
atre lobby this Friday
night, as part of the
Gulfport's continuing
Centennial celebration
"Great C(' I\ great Art-
ists" and a fundraiser
for the Senior Center.
20 of the 24 exhibitors
are from the Trea-
sure Island Art Guild
and many, including
Gulfport artist Helen
Mullins, are from
Gulfport and belong to
multiple guilds. They
were approached by
the Gulfport Senior
Center and asked to
contribute some of
their works to be auc-
tioned off at a Silent
Auction at the art ex-
hibition at the Hick-
man. The proceeds of

to do it; especially with
the opportunity to display their art is such a refined place as the Hickman
Theatre.
"In this instance, the artists are supporting the community, instead of the
community supporting us," Mullins smiled. "It's a wonderful idea and so many
artists were willing to donate works for such a good cause."
Mullins is donating two pieces; one of the Peninsula Inn, and the other of
the Backfin Blue Caf6. Almost all of her work is centered on Gulfport and the
local flavor.
"All of the artists on Friday night will also have artwork displayed for pub-
lic sale. I will be exhibiting three of my pieces. The Hickman is such a lovely
place for an art show and there will be refreshments and a piano player for the
event; it should be a wonderful time, as only Gulfport can do," Mullins said.
The event Friday night at the Hickman Theatre gallery will begin at 6 p.m.
Artwork will be available for sale and silent auction. The silent auction pro-
ceeds will benefit the Senior Center. Come out to the Hickman for a lovely
evening filled with art and support your community artists.

CIEUTAT, ALINE GOFORTH, 83
of Gulfport, died on Friday, Oct. 1,
2010. Aline was born in Maryville,
TN on Jan. 31, 1927. She married
Hubert A. Cieutat in 1946. They had
four children. Hubert died in Febru-
ary 1973. She is survived by her son,
Leon Cieutat of Gay, GA and his wife,
Joanne, her daughter, Sylvia Cieutat
Ball and her husband Smith of St.
Petersburg, and her daughter-in-
law Edie Cieutat of Peachtree City,
GA. Aline loved her grandchildren,
Sean, Jody, Richard and Matthew,
her great-grandchildren, Mallory,
Cayden and Hailey and her nieces
and nephews. They brought her much
joy; she was a very proud "Grandma".
She was preceded in death by her
sons, Hubert and Leo and grandson,
Mark Alan Cieutat. After leaving
Maryville, TN, she lived in Atlanta,
GA, moved to Mobile, AL to raise
her family and ultimately returned

preferred never to sit at home wher-
ever she was. She was a very strong
woman and hard worker. She loved
to work outside; to be outside. She
spent many hours, many years rais-
ing very large vegetable gardens and
flowers. You would find her plowing,
planting, hoeing, weeding, harvest-
ing and freezing the bounty until she
moved to Florida. When the family
gathered you would often hear "is
that Grandma's corn? green beans?
If not, I don't want any." Aline's
family takes this occasion to thank
their many friends for the kindness
shown over the years to our Mother
and Grandma. She will be missed but
never forgotten. A funeral service will
be held on Thursday, Oct. 7, 2010 at

Grand Central Oktoberfest Sells Out
By Cathy Salustri

By the time the gates
opened at 5 p.m. Satur-
S..-- day, the Grand Central
District had no more tick-
n, bets to sell. By 7 p.m., the
sausage lady had run out
ofbuns. By 8 p.m., some of
19 the vendors had run out of
beer. The general merri-
ment ringing through the
crowd, though, remained
undeterred. People filled
their cup at one station,
Jon Tallon, left, and Dan Bradley enjoy an Anchor Steam then waited in line to get
brew while waiting in line foranother brew. Guests received a different taste while
one cup that they could get filled at each brewing station drinking the first sample.
throughout the evening. In all, the first annual
Grand Central District
Oktoberfest attended by 2500 people exceeded the organizer's expecta-
tions.
"We were very excited about the turnout. We had low estimates of selling
about 1000 tickets," Jim Longstreth, president of the Grand Central District
Association told the Gabber.
Longstreth said the District sold out of 1400 Groupon tickets in 10 hours.
They sold the remainder of the tickets in person.
"The response was just phenomenal," he said. He added that organizers also
used social networking sites and local print media to market the event.
"We got a lot of people in the District who normally would not be here," Long-
streth said.
The District would like to bring more people in next year, he added. Long-
streth said that he'd like to have the bands play longer next year.
"We'll have to probably lengthen the time; from five to ten was apparently too
short," he said.

Something on my mind
SBy Bill Northrop B_Northrop@theGabber.com


Be Honest about
Thinking Big
E eventually we're going to
have it, or them: a high
speed rail system hooking up
Tampa with Orlando and a complex
public transit system in at least
Hillsborough County. Perhaps we'll
also get an extension of the latter into
St. Petersburg and extensions into
Orlando and the environs. There will
be at least one stop along the way and
development of a rail station there.
The high speed rail project is part
of a nation wide endeavor meant
to mimic the inter-state highway
system that was initiated, partly for
potential military purposes, in the
1950s. The rail and transit system
is part of green thinking that is
expected to move more people more
efficiently and faster than cars, cut
down on road congestion (or at least


freeze it at present levels), and be
an economic stimulus to the regions
affected, and make city and suburban
living easier.
It's thinking big, certainly. A
question might be is it good or bad?
It depends upon your viewpoint.
Is it feasible? Will it really work?
Hard to say. What is to say is that
it will cost a great deal. The federal
government has pledged a couple
billion toward it for Florida although
I recall something about that figure
being cut. Florida has to raise the
rest. However you finance it, it all
comes from the taxpayer.
In addition, the operations will
have to be subsidized forever. In a
recent excellent St. Pete Times news
report about Charlotte, N.C.'s transit
system, it stated that only 25 per
cent of the cost of operation is covered
by fares. The rest comes from public
taxing sources.

I recently spent three weeks in
southern England and London and
observed and used a good public
transit system. Some smaller
towns like Oxford and Winchester,
discourage driving in the town at all.
There are park and ride lots on the
outskirts and public buses to take
you down town. Most charge a fee.
The rides take anywhere from five to
20 minutes. All, however, according
to our hosts, are government
subsidized.
That's similar to all the big city
transit systems in the U.S. Most
are efficient in moving people in and
around congested cities. Congestion
still exists (London and New York
are good examples), but the people
moving systems work well. However,
all are costly and fares don't cover
the costs.
I have no problem with the proposals
for such systems here and elsewhere.
If that's what the people want, so be
it. However, let's be up front about
the costs. The Charlotte system, for
instance, was projected to cost one
thing. It ended up costing much more.
That's likely to happen everywhere.
The safe approach would be to take
the cost estimates and add 50 to 100
per cent to them. If fares don't cover
the expenses, then estimate up front
what the needed tax revenues will
be. And where those taxes will be
applied.
Highways and airports are public
entities, and the railroads used to
complain that that was an unfair
advantage. Since the collapse of
ubiquitous passenger service, we
are left with Amtrak which has been
subsidized and subsidized, but has
not operated efficiently for lots of
reasons. Also, while we pay fees for
highway and airport usage, we may
not be paying enough to keep up with
maintenance. I'll save the discussion
about public (government) operation
for another day.
The point is that there's nothing
wrong with thinking big, but we
should sell the package based on
those real costs and those real taxes.
Thinking big is good, but thinking
accurately is even better.

Pinellas County Commission Candidates
Challenger Norm Roche Faces Incumbent Calvin Harris For County Commission Seat
By Cathy Salustri


Challenger Norm Roche will face long-term commis-
sioner Calvin Harris in the race for the at-large seat
for Pinellas County Commission this November.
We asked both candidates the same questions.
Below, you'll find their verbatim answers.


cerned with the recent dis-
solution of the county's
Environmental Lands de-
partment and environmen-
tal oversight functions. I find
it hard to understand how
that particular department
became a "priority" target as
part of our recent staff and
service cuts. With Pinellas


at the stage of "built-out," I
am keenly aware of and will
remain focused and dedi-
cated on the importance of
protecting and supporting
all remaining environmen-
tally sensitive and park
lands. Simply put: not on
my watch.


What do you think is the best approach for
countywide fire and EMS services?


Calvin Harris Norm Roche
Pinellas County Pinellas County
Commission Commission
Incumbent Candidate

With the dissolution of the county's Environmental Lands
and merging into Parks, how do you intend to maintain
and support public lands like the Shell Key preserve and
Fort DeSoto?


Calvin Harris: Environ-
mental Lands should never
have been separated from
parks. This
duplication meant that there
were two departments, two
administrative offices, two
administrative salaries and
other costs for two groups of
employees tasked with the
same functions. The same
skill set is involved, there-
fore a bifurcation is unnec-
essary. Parks and Preserves
are different only because
of our designations. Expert
personnel will care for all of
the county's lands regardless
of who they report to or how
the land is designated. Hav-
ing separate designations for
important functions does not
make them any more or less
important. Neither should


a piece of land get more re-
sources if it is called a Pre-
serve and less if it is called
a park.

Norm Roche: I spent 10-
years with Pinellas County
working in policy research
and development, and pub-
lic education and outreach
in the areas of environmen-
tal, water, wastewater, and
solid waste. I am currently
employed as the Business
Development and Environ-
mental Health & Safety Co-
ordinator for Gannett Flem-
ing Williams Geotechnical
Group (an International En-
gineering Firm). To say that
our environment is a passion
of mine would be an under-
statement.
That said, I am quite con-


Norm Roche: Although
our current system is
among the best in the
state, it is also the most
costly and simply cannot
be sustained. We have po-
liticized and played around
with this issue long enough
and it has cost our taxpay-
ers millions. Public safety
and response time is para-
mount and must guide any
discussion. There are a few
concepts being bantered
about that include either a
full countywide approach,
a regionalized approach
within the county (north,
mid, and south), and even
a quad-regional system
within the county. At this
juncture, I cannot state
what the right answer is,
but can clearly state that
we shall never get there if
we do not begin the discus-
sion.
There are also many "sub-
issues" within the overall
consolidation issue cost ef-


fectiveness, union contracts,
redundancies, and legacy
costs are but a few of them. I
have experience in being on
both sides of the table and
bringing about a resolution
that is amenable to all, and
I am prepared to take the
lead on this, pull everyone
to the table, put all ideas on
the table, and get this done
with an emphasis on main-
taining the highest level of
public safety and service,
and eliminating the unnec-
essary costs.

Calvin Harris: The cur-
rent system cannot be main-
tained as is because of the
cost. This is one of those in-
stance where everyone needs
to work together to improve
a system that has outlived
its time. We need to go to
priority dispatch, eliminate
the redundancy, and build
a reimbursement system
based on actual costs.


Cities like St. Pete Beach, Gulfport and St. Petersburg
are all full service cities; what will you do as a county
commissioner to improve the quality of life for the aver-
age resident and businessperson in these communities?


Calvin Harris: My vision
for the county includes work-
ing with all of the elected of-
ficials, chambers, and other
business groups to both keep
jobs in the county and bring
more jobs here. The addi-
tion of new companies and
jobs will improve the lives


of everyone by adding much
needed revenue to assist
with quality of live improve-
ments. All of the initiatives
that I am working on -jobs,
tax relief, access to parks,
empowering our youth, add-
ing to the preservation land
total, and adding to the af-


Gabber October 14 October 20, 2010






fordable housing inventory,
are all items that affect all
of the citizens of Pinellas
County.

Norm Roche: Although our
24 municipalities have au-
tonomy with respect to how
they run and operate their
respective cities, it is impera-
tive that our county lead-
ership works closely with
them to assure a continued
and improved quality of life
throughout Pinellas County.
Gulfport's problems and is-
sues are Clearwater's, Clear-
water's are Dunedin's, Dune-
din's are St. Pete's and so
on. Making certain that our
county operations, taxation,
and budget re-stabilizes and
remains stable going forward,
and our County leadership
environment becomes more
communicative and coopera-
tive with our municipalities


will be a priority of mine and
will lead to a improved en-
vironment for all of Pinellas
residents and businesses.
With respect to our budget
and operation I believe we
must apply a "zero-based"
budget process that clearly
defines our budgetary needs,
and then only collect the funds
necessary to meet those needs.
As our property tax revenues
fluctuate, so should our prop-
erty tax rate, in an effort to
maintain a balanced budget
and avoid the windfall rev-
enue and spending dilemma
that brought about our cur-
rent situation. I also believe
we need to make pragmatic
department consolidations
throughout our operations
to include: Utilities & Public
Works, fleet services, legal
services, economic develop-
ment and "like" departments
to name a few. Additionally, I


believe it is time to pull our
county and municipalities
together to address, discuss,
and look for countywide con-
solidation opportunities.
With respect to our business
and economic environment -
Pinellas has lost over 40,000
jobs over the past 4-years. At
present, the dollars allocated
to address the declining en-
vironment are distributed
among several departments
applying multiple approach-
es; our Economic Develop-
ment Department, Conven-
tion and Visitors Bureau,
and Tourism Development
to name a few. In addition,
our 24 municipalities also
have their own various de-
partments and programs.
Notwithstanding the
well-documented problems
statewide with government
bureaucracy and red-tape,
property taxation, and a con-


tinued problem with prop-
erty insurance I believe
there are several ways we
can improve our environ-
ment right here in Pinellas.
By pulling our county and
municipal resources and
ideas together, bringing all
parties together to include
our numerous Chambers of
Commerce, and reviewing
our multiple efforts for re-
dundancies, red-tape road-
blocks, and program effec-
tiveness we can focus our
countywide efforts on pro-
grams that work, and elimi-
nate those that do not. With
continuous tracking and ac-
countability mechanisms to
be certain we're receiving a
solid return on the economic
tax dollar investment, I be-
lieve we can improve our
economic environment and
job growth throughout our
county.

You & THE


LAW
By Robert J. Myers, Esq.
What is a Living Trust?
A Living Trust is created while you
are alive. The use of Living Trusts
has been effective for maintaining
personal privacy and control outside
of the court system. A Living Trust
is also very useful for reducing estate
taxes and for probate avoidance.
LIVING TRUST BASICS
A separate legal entity is created
upon the formation of a Living Trust.
This entity can own and hold both real
estate and personal property. Every
Living Trust has a Settlor or Grantor,
a Trustee and Beneficiaries. A basic
understanding of what these terms
mean is important to understanding
how Living Trusts work and how
they are different from other types of
trusts.

(Corner of 85th Avenue and Blind Pass Road)
TO RSVP CALL 800-667-4576
Space is limited so reserve early.


WHO IS THE SETTLOR
OF THE TRUST?
The Settlor of a Living Trust
establishes the Living Trust and
signs the document creating the
Living Trust. The Settlor controls
what the Living Trust says and does.
Living Trusts are revocable, that is,
the Settlor can change or cancel a
Living Trust at any time in her/his
discretion. A Settlor is sometimes
also referred to as the Grantor of
the Living Trust. When you set up a
Living Trust, you are considered to
be the Settlor or Grantor.
WHO IS THE TRUSTEE
OF THE TRUST?
A Trustee of a Living Trust
manages the trust assets. When a
Living Trust is created, assets should
then be transferred into the trust.
Decisions concerning what property
to buy, sell, mortgage, transfer
or lease are made by a Trustee.
The Trustee has a special duty to
beneficiaries of a Living Trust which
is called a fiduciary duty. What this
means is that the Trustee has a legal
obligation to perform her/his duties

Specialized care.


properly and in accordance with the
law while keeping the best interests
of the beneficiaries in mind. In a
Living Trust, you act as your own
Trustee as long as you are able to or
desire to act in this capacity. Upon
you death or disability, a Successor
Trustee will take over management
of the trust assets.
WHO IS THE BENEFICIARY
OF THE TRUST?
A Beneficiary of a Living Trust is
someone who benefits from the assets
in the trust. Income and earnings
are used for the benefit of the
Beneficiaries. Trust assets cannot be
used for any other purpose. You will
initially be the Beneficiary of your
Living Trust. Upon your death, the
people you have named (normally
family members) will become the
Beneficiaries.

49th Street,
from front page

revitalizing the neighborhood for the
residents, business owners and visi-
tors of Gulfport. Step by step, I be-
lieve that we have been doing just
that," Councilman Henderson said.
"While today there remains much
to do, and all elements of the origi-
nal plan have not yet been achieved,
there have certainly been improve-
ments."
Original goals, set by the Economic
Development Advisory Committee, or
EDAC, are numbered; the action tak-
en over the past decade is described
beneath each numbered goal.

#20 Address and resolve the lack of
parking off the 49th Street corridor
in surrounding alleyways. Request
the City designate and redesign al-
leyways to create parking areas. Cre-
ate a public/private partnership to
widen alleys.
It designated parking in the Green-
way in the parking corrals in lieu of
this, Mr. O'Reilly said.

#21 Increase the size and number of
street and directional signs and in-
clude trolley theme. Identify areas of
interest and parking with signs. Re-
quest the city identify locations and
design signs that are informative
and easily read by pedestrians and
drivers.
According to the city manager,
Gulfport put in signs at the Tanger-
ine Greenway and added entrance
signs.

#22 Address and decrease flooding.
Develop a storm water detention/
retention pond with attractive land-
scaping, creating a park between
49th and 54th Streets on Tangerine
Greenway.
"Done. The entire Greenway is now
the retention area," Mr. O'Reilly
said.

#23 Improve the image of the Rede-
velopment District by creating an
on-going public relations campaign.
Issue press releases and stories that
promote achievements of the police,
community organizations and citi-
zens.
That did not happen, according to
Mr. O'Reilly.
Gabber October 14 October 20, 2010


#24 Establish "area specific" awards
to honor businesses who are mak-
ing notable improvements to their
property. Create an awards program
specifically for businesses in the 49th
Street/Tangerine Greenway area and
present awards on a quarterly basis.
The Good Neighbor awards current-
ly fulfill this project, according to Mr.
O'Reilly.

#25 Create a Redevelopment District
under Chapter 163 of Florida Stat-
ues which will facilitate eligibility for
grant funding. Request the City cre-
ate a program to initiate and main-
tain six-year funding sources. The
Community Redevelopment Agency
can regulate the district.
The city did this with Resolution 99-
80, the city manager said.

#26 Strengthen the success of small
businesses. Request the City imple-
ment small business assistance pro-
grams and gather and make available
literature regarding small businesses
help programs.
No city office has evidence that this
happened.

#27 Encourage businesses within the
district to sponsor neighborhood-uni-
fying events and activities. Create a
neighborhood activities group to sup-
port and promote area events such as
a "Trolley Track Fun Run."
While the "Trolley Track Fun Run"
hasn't come to pass yet, the So49
Business Association and the annual
Blues Festival are two doings along
the 49th Street corridor that do unify
the neighborhood, Mr. O'Reilly not-
ed.

#28 Attract young professionals such
as doctors, lawyers, et cetera to the
Tangerine Greenway area. Request
city council create a mixed use zon-
ing area which would allow a resi-
dence and a business in one building.
Promote the mixed-use area.
The multi-use district passed two
weeks ago, at the September 7 meet-
ing.

#29 Determine areas that may be eli-
gible to become a Federal Enterprise
Zone. Research creating a Federal
Enterprise Zone. These zones are
eligible for federal funding for social,
business and infrastructure projects.


"I couldn't tell you what the city re-
searched," Mr. O'Reilly said, but the
city has no such zone.

Free Knitting Gathering
Knit 1, purl 2...as you welcome our
Florida winter, bring your knitting
to gather together at the Gulfport
Recreation Center on Tuesday,
October 26 at 10 a.m., in this free
one-day gathering, knitters can
come together to show their latest
garments and techniques and talk
knit. Show off items you are already
working on, need help with or just
come to get signed up to learn this
craft and art form. Sign up for the
first class, Knitting for Our 4-Legged
Friends, which begins in November
if there is interest. Classes are $35
for four sessions per month. For more
information about this gathering, call
Latoya at 727-823-0437.

Audition for
"Noises Off"
Known as one of the funniest farces
ever written, "Noises Off' is really a
play within a play. It is a bawdy play,
in which young girls run around in
their underwear, old men drop their
pants, and doors continually open
and shut. It is a very fast moving
play, requiring a lot of energy to pull
off in front of an audience.
The play will be directed by Eileen
Navarro and she will need: 4 men
ages 20 to 50, 1 man in his 70s,
and 4 women ages 20 to 50. This
show is equal parts of dialogue and
decathlon. All of these roles require a
very high level of energy and fitness,
so if you have bad knees, a bad back,
or get exhausted easily, this play is
not for you!
Prepare a 60 second monologue and
read it with your best British accent.
It is not necessary to memorize it
however. Bring a resume of your
theater experience, and a list of
conflicts for November 1st through
January 23rd, 2011. Don't forget
to list your holiday conflicts too, as
you'll be rehearsing through the
holiday period.
The auditions will be held on
Monday, October 25, and Tuesday,
October 26 at 7 p.m. sharp and will
be held at the Players' Back Door
Theater, located at 1619 49 Street S.,
in Gulfport.
The play will run at the Catherine
A. Hickman Theater of Gulfport from
January 6th through the 23rd, 2011.

Grandma Mary's Cake
I am not superstitious. Well, not
a lot. I mean, black cats don't
bother me, but I tend to avoid
cemeteries at night. I look for the
logical in the unexplained, even if
sometimes I hope not to find it.
My one area of illogicality is dead
people. I don't believe in poltergeists,
and I'm not even sure I can say I
believe in ghosts. But I do believe
that, on some level, people don't
exactly leave earth when they die.
I could get into the science of why I
think that, or I could wax romantic
about souls chained to one another,
but I won't, because I have a better
way of explaining this to you:
Grandma Mary's cake.
My favorite thing about food is...
well, OK, everything. But one thing
I really enjoy is cooking, and baking
in particular fascinates me. It's the
simple chemistry of baking I love: I
know that, no matter what, the right
proportions of water, egg and flour
will make macaroni, but if I alter
the proportions, use milk instead of
water, and throw in a little baking
powder, vanilla and sugar, I've got
cake. It never fails.
At least, it never failed me until about
a year ago when my grandmother
died. Grandma Rae taught me how
to make everything from roast duck
to almond crescents. She had a recipe
collection that surpassed the page
count of the Lord of the Rings trilogy.
They're good recipes, too: aside from
her family, her recipes are her best
legacy.
One of the first things she taught
me how to make was her mother's
(Mary, my great-grandmother) cake.
It was the go-to cake for birthdays
in our family; it was probably the
first cake I ever ate. As a teenager
and adult I made it regularly. It
was a little denser than most cakes,
but still spongy and moist. If I do
say so myself, it is a feat of cake
engineering.
So it only stands to reason that
when Leah had a Halloween party
last year, I offered to bring Grandma
Gabber October 14 October 20, 2010


Mary's cake. My grandmother had
died the month before and I thought
it would make me feel closer to her. I
made the cake, same as always, and
brought it to Leah's house.
It was the most disgusting, dry,
heavy cake I'd ever tasted. I still
apologize to Leah for gracing her
dining room with this atrocity. But,
as any cook will tell you, sometimes
these things happen. Maybe I got the
proportions wrong. My grandmother
had Alzheimer's, and I wondered if
I'd gone off a recipe she'd written
down after her mind started to get a
little jiggly.
No problem. My dad's birthday was
just around the corner, and since it
was his mother, I figured I'd make the
cake and make him smile. I double-
checked the recipe against the four
other copies I had. I double-checked
the ingredients as I measured them.
I made the cake.
My mother took one bite of it and
looked at me sadly.
"Honey, you're a great cook, you are,
but please don't make that cake ever
again," was her Mom-of-the-year
response (I've ordered her trophy) as
she spit the cake into the garbage.
The thing was fruitcake consistency,
dry as limestone, and heavy as hell.
Now, this is where it started to get
personal. I could do this; I could make
a damn cake- especially one I'd made
for almost 20 years. I tried to think of
what I'd done differently. I asked my
baking friends what they thought.
Leah asked what was different from
the last time I'd made the cake. I
thought, then realized nothing. Well,
other than my grandmother being
alive every other time I'd made it.
But that was ridiculous.
Christmastime came, and I was
determined to get this right. I tested
the baking powder, made sure I
wasn't beating the mix too long,
and set my mind toward making
the now-subtitled-I-May-Have-a-
Breakdown-Over-Grandma-Mary's-
cake one more time. It had nothing
to do, I told myself, with anything
supernatural. Cake makery is just


chemistry, simple chemistry. I aced
chemistry in high school. Piece of
cake.
I think we can all assume that had
the cake turned out with anything
other than me crying in frustration,
it would not be the subject of this
column.
Like I said, I'm not superstitious,
and I'm not crazy. I don't believe
for one moment Grandma Rae's
watching over my shoulder, rubbing
her hands together with evil intent
and casting some beyond-the-veil
cake spell on Grandma Mary's cake.
But I simply cannot explain why a
perfectly good recipe has consistently
failed me over the past year.
So here's where you come in. I
know there are bakers out there.
The recipe's below; tell me what I
did wrong. Fix this cake for me, and
I'll bake you a batch of her almond
crescents (those are still good; I've
checked) come Thanksgiving.
And, hey, if you happen to see a
handsome gray-haired Italian lady
sitting in the corner of your kitchen,
wearing a blue apron with red trim
and clip-on earrings, tell her I'd
trade the cake in a heartbeat to have
her cook alongside me again, would
you?
Grandma Mary's Cake
3 c. Swan's Down cake flour
4 t. baking powder
3/ t. salt
Sift the above ingredients together.
4 eggs, separated
3/ c. butter (1 %2 stick)
1 t. vanilla
2 c. sugar
3/ c. milk
Cream butter and sugar until
creamy. Add egg yolks one at a time
until well-blended.
Add the teaspoon of vanilla to the
milk. Starting with flour, add vanilla
and milk, alternating and ending
with flour.
Beat egg whites until stiff peaks are
formed. Fold into batter making sure
no whites are shown.
Pour into waxed, lined 9" baking
pans. Bake at 3500 for 35 -45
minutes. Test with toothpick; make
sure it comes out clean. Cool about 10
minutes. Turn out on waxed paper.

Gulfport Beach September Water Quality Report

By Cathy Salustri
Each week the City of Gulfport tests the water quality
in the waters off Gulfport Beach. Gulfport has contracted
with the City of St. Petersburg for the tests.
Every month The Gabber publishes the results of those
tests. If, at any time, the tests show that the water quality
poses a health risk, the City of Gulfport will issue a Health
Advisory. Gulfport typically receives test results within a
week of taking the sample.
Currently, the City tests for two things: enterococcus
and fecal coliform. Scientists consider enterococcus a
common bacteria found in animal and human intestines,
and, resultingly, in human and animal excrement.
Federal standards used to require agencies to measure
water quality by the amount of fecal coliform along public
beach waters but recently have replaced fecal coliform
with enterococcus as the standard. Fecal coliform also
comes from the waste of warm-blooded animals, including Sample Date Enterococcus Fecal Coliform
humans.
The City of Gulfport currently tests for both types of September 8 14 12
bacteria. Test results will help classify Gulfport Harbor as September 14 16 21
"good", "moderate", or "poor". Enterococcus of less than 35
parts per 100 milliliter and fecal coliform of less than 199 September 21 12 14
per 100 milliliter of saltwater indicate good water quality.
For more information, contact the City of Gulfport at September 28 72 180
893-1000.

beautiful wife, Joan, have just moved
into their dream house with they
are visited by their new neighbors,
Carolyn and Jeff Symons. A

deception, and his violent, possessive

Volunteers Needed
by Orchestra
The newly forming, 17 piece St.
Petersburg Jazz Orchestra (SPJO)
needs volunteers to help set up and
take down music stands; setting up
chairs; ticket sales and librarians to
handle all sheet music.
Volunteers, in addition to getting to
know and learn from top-professional
musicians, will receive free tickets;
can travel, if they wish, with the
Orchestra; free SPJO membership;


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

Beach Library Flag Raising
By Melissa Lattman
Saturday morning's
flag raising celebrated
the St. Pete Beach Pub-
lic Library building's
41st year. The library
started according to its
Web site as the Long
Key Library in 1951
and the current 8,200
square-foot building
was constructed in 1969
and renovated in 1995.
When Congressman
Bill Young could not at-
tend the library build-
ing's 40th year celebra-
tion last year he sent
former library director
Roberta Whipple a flag
that had flown over
the U.S. Capitol. David
Macon of Young's St.
Petersburg office who
came on Young's behalf,
said this year recovery from surgery kept Young from attending the ceremony.
The flag was also raised in memory of Whipple who passed last year after a
battle with cancer. Macon officially presented the flag to current library direc-
tor Phyllis Ruscella on Saturday.

Bogie Homecoming

Loss to Sickles, a Heartbreaker


Bogie Quarterback Shaquille Bradford tried to break free and move the
ball up field. He was called back by a controversial call by the ref for
offensive holding.
By Leigh Clifton the officiating appeared to


In one of the hardest hit-
ting games all year, Bogie's
Homecoming game loss
against Sickles last Satur-
day night was a bitter pill;


have been a major impact
on the outcome. The Pirates
just couldn't seem to get a
break.
Until the third quarter,


the Pirates had led the Sick-
les Gryphons 16-3 and the
Gryphon's offense looked
really flat. But Sickles had
changed quarterbacks at
the half and the Gryphon's
suddenly came alive. John
Hendrick replaced Lee
Myer, who moved to the
receiver position. Hendrick
attempted to pass and was
laid out flat as he let the
ball go. Somehow, Myers
was able to snatch it mid-
air and ran for 25 yards up
field. Hendricks then scored
from about eight yards out
to make it 16-10. The next
drive, the Gryphons forced
a Bradford fumble; Corey
White picked it up and had
a 64 yard run for a touch-
down. Bogie answered with
a Shaquille Bradford keeper
who then ran up the Bogie
sidelines on his way to a
game winning touchdown.
But the ref threw the flag
and called offensive holding,
negating the gain. The Bo-


gie coaches were livid; the
infraction should have been
on the defense, but that's
the way the game seemed to
go all night for the Pirates.
Bogie just could not recover.
Final: 17-16 Sickles.
Congratulations go to the
stunning Pirate's junior
D'Asia Robinson for Home-
coming Queen and the hand-
some #9 Pirates Cornerback
senior Marquez Mackey as
Homecoming King!

quille Bradford looks up

Premier Chioce: Flood Insurance That Pays You!


State Farm Customers
Prepare For October!
eff DeNight is changing the way
people feel about their insurance
company.
Jeff co-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 the only 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 either at inception- if they're
new policy holders-- and then again
every subsequent year they renew...
forever," 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?


Jef ueeNignt, co-owner of tentley-
DeNight insurance shares commissions
with his customers.
Nope, Jeff says. FEMA is the only
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.
Jeff says, things are tough for everyone,
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.

PRAYER TO ST. JUDE This novena has
never been known to fail. This novena must be
said for 9 consecutive days. Publication must
be promised. Oh Holy St. Jude, Apostle and
Martyr, great in virtue and rich in miracles,
near kinsman of Jesus Christ, faithful inter-
cessor of all who invoke your special patron-
age in time of need, to you I have recourse
from the depth of my heart and humbly beg
to whom God has given great power to come
to my assistance. Help me in my present
urgent petition. In return, I promise to make
your name known and call you to be invoked.
St. Jude, pray for us all who invoke your aid.
Amen. Say 3 Our Fathers, 3 Hail Marys & 3

POWERFUL PRAYER TO HOLY SPIRIT -
Holy Spirit, you who solves all problems, who
lights all roads so that I can attain my goal, you
who give me the divine gifts to forgive and for-
get al 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.
