City Received Federal Funding
for Police Department
GULFPORT The city received a grant to fund
another police officer position for the next three
years. The Justice Department awarded Gulfport a
$180,000 grant to help offset budget cuts that affected
the police department. The grant is part of the
COPS Grant program, which stands for Community
Oriented Policing Services. The city will not have to
match these funds.

Lynne Brown
Nominated for Spirit
of Gulfport Award
Vice-Mayor Mi-
chele King nomi-
nated Gulfport ,
Historian Lynne F /s -"
Brown for the
city's Spirit of
Gulfport award.
Brown, author of
several Gulfport Fn'- o r
history books,
served as the ring- Gulfport Historian
leader for the city's Lynne Brown
recent centennial
"I think this is probably overdue and
maybe a little embarrassing that we
haven't done this before," Vice-Mayor
Michele King said. The rest of council
supported the nomination.

Development Code
Amendment Passes
GULFPORT The city passed Ordi-
nance 2010-16, which amends the
zoning code to allow for individual
agreements between developers and
the city.
"Someone could come in and prom-
ise you the moon... and then they
could come in and say, 'we changed
our mind'," Community Developer
Director Fred Metcalf said. "It's typi-
cally done with a land use amend-
ment. There may be certain things
that council may want to see done.
With a development agreement, you
can talk about those changes up front.
That way, it's basically a performance
This change does not mean the city
has to have a development agreement,
Mr. Metcalf said.
"This ordinance will allow city coun-
cil to create a development agreement
if it chooses, but it does not require
council to do so," he added.
See Development, page 2

from front page
A development agreement would
establish development procedures
that property owners would have
to follow. Development agreements
will still have to get council approval
at a publicly noticed hearing.
"It may not be something that we
use a lot; it's just a tool that's there
if we need it," Fred Metcalf, Com-
munity Development Director, said.
It will not supersede existing zon-
ing laws, Director Metcalf said.

Councilwoman Jennifer Salmon
cast the only dissenting vote, in-
dicating she felt the city might be
rushing to pass this code.
City council will vote on this again
at the November 2 council meeting.

Gulfport Police
Survey Results
By Cathy Salustri
This summer, the Gulfport Police
Department asked residents and
businesses to complete a survey
about the police department. Sur-
vey questions dealt with perceived
and real crime; respondents also
had the opportunity to write in their
INlI objective when I came in this
office was to refocus things so that
we police the way the citizens want
the town policed," Chief Robert Vin-
cent said of the survey. Of the 7500
surveys sent out, almost 1200 peo-
ple and businesses responded, both
by mail and over the Internet.
Although some respondents identi-
fied violent crime problems, such as
home invasions and animal abuse,
as concerns, many people told the
department they had concerns about
noise violations, barking dogs, and
"The significant numbers tell me
that the biggest concern, the thing
that leads people to be concerned
about safety, is burglaries. We're
drawing our conclusions based on
the crime and locations where people
reported feeling less safe." the Chief
said, but added he couldn't elaborate
until he presented the information
to city council. He would say that
the "highest concerns of everyone...
across the board was burglary. I can
definitely tell you that."
SurveyMonkey hosted the online
survey for about $60 and Univer-

sity of South Florida's criminology
doctoral candidates analyzed the re-
sponses. The only other costs associ-
ated with the survey, Chief Vincent
said, were almost $8,000 for copies
and mailing.
"I'm going to ask to do it again in
the winter months so we can include
the winter population and the stu-
dent population. If we do it again,
we can tell if our efforts have been
fruitful," the Chief of the survey.

The Chief also stressed that he cre-
ated the survey to see where people
felt the police department could do
better, not to give an accurate pic-
ture of what crimes occurred in what
parts city.
"We already have that information;
the survey tells us what people per-
ceive," he said.
Chief Vincent will present the en-
tire report to Gulfport City Council
at the November 2 meeting.

will share the cost of repaving and

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

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

Attorney Keith Sanders, Handles Foreclosure Defense and
Bankruptcies with Experience and Sensitivity

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

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

pers concerning bank-
ruptcy law in general,
ECF requirements and
new issues. He is a
former director of the
Bankruptcy Section of
the State Bar of Geor-
The firm also handles
Short Sale negotia-
tions, defense against
foreclosures, wills &
trusts, civil litigation
and loan modifica-
Outside of the court-
room, Sanders lives in
an unusual home in
Gulfport that was one
of the featured proper-
ties in a recent Pink Fla-
mingo Tour of Homes. It
has a tree growing right
up through the floor and
up through the ceiling of
his kitchen. He has five
dogs and a cat.

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,

about protecting seabirds and land
birds from the hazards of modern
society. She is a trained rescuer
and demonstrated several ways
injured birds are captured.
One of the best ways to protect
seabirds is to not feed them; they
become unafraid of humans,
dependent on handouts and will eat
things not a part of their natural
diet. This applies to other wildlife
as well.

The hiring of an attorney is an important decision that should not be based solely on advertisements.
Before you decide, ask us to send you free written information about our qualifications and experience.

Do y think the current ngi political-ads

Linda Lembevski, St. Pete: "No, I
don't like them and I don't think most
of the public does either. I also don't
think they will sway people from one
side to another. They're disappointing
with the whole negative aspect.
But possibly an informational ad
can often help people make a final
decision. If the candidates just stuck
to the positive and expressed the
positive points of their campaign, I
think people would be more inclined
to trust them and vote for them. I
never believe a negative ad; it hurts
me when I know that what they're
saying isn't true and that they would
have to stoop that low. Why don't they
just give their positive message and
let the public decide?"

Lori Hester, St. Pete: "Yes, I do
think the ads could be influential
on voters in that they're getting so
disgusted by them that they just
won't vote. I think all this negativity
will keep people from coming out
to vote; they make you feel like you
just don't want to vote for anybody.
I think a lot of the information in
those ads is misleading and untrue.
I don't think there should be any ads
at ALL on TV. The candidates should
have more covered debates so that
the people can actually see and hear
what issues the candidates stand for,
not just sound bites. The TV stations
should devote a block of time to let
them debate; the ads should just be
outlawed all together. It's getting
so I can't even answer my phone
anymore! I keep getting calls from
people endorsing a certain candidate
or else they want a contribution.
I think I even got a call from Rick
Scott's mother; it may have been a
recorded message but still... With
all the reading I've done about Rick
Scott why would I want to endorse a
man who can't seem to run a business
honestly? And who puts their mother
on TV? Shame on them."

Raymond Frohner, Gulfport: "I
think those ads just turn people off.
Some people might believe them.
But when the Republicans and the
National Chamber of Commerce
spend something like a hundred
million dollars for negative ads
against their opponents, something
is very wrong. In those ads, they
never disclose where the money
comes from. It seems criminal when
a guy like Rick Scott, whose company
stole a lot of money, was convicted
of bilking millions of dollars from
Medicare, then turns around and
runs for Governor and the people
don't even care that he stole money
essentially from them! He should
NOT be allowed to run for office.
Then to deflect attention away from
himself, he sets up these incredibly
negative ads against Alex Sink and
people forget that he got caught in
a criminal act. Some people are so
stupid; they can't even name their
Senators and Congressmen. Yet
they will hear the ads and vote
for him anyway. I think the ads
are ridiculous lies yet they're still
allowed to air."

David Phillips, St. Pete Beach:
"Those ads just make people
hate politics and politicians... it's
disgusting. I don't think there's any
truth to any of them and there's so
much misinformation that's being
thrown at the public right now. You'd
have to be pretty silly and naive to
believe any of it. It certainly won't
influence my vote at all."

ItStoroscoDe Guide

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You
express yourself in exciting ways.
But you've been behaving like this for
so long that the way you talk, walk,
dress and emote just seems very
ordinary to you. Meanwhile, you're
making quite an impression on the
new acquaintances that drift into
your world. You'll gather fans and
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You
can't choose your tests, and you
really wouldn't want to. If you knew
exactly what would be on the test, it
wouldn't be a comprehensive gauge
of where you are now. This week,
life will bring opportunities to exert
yourself, to measure up and to learn
in what ways you still need to grow
to be the person you want to be.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21).
How you retell the events of your
life is like giving a picture a perfect
frame. The frame won't make the
art itself any better, and yet it helps
you to focus on what's there, to see
the beauty and to understand how it
ties in to the whole room. With your
mental framing, you'll decide what is
important and put it in focus.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19).
Getting people to happily work
for you is an art. You would like
to be great friends with everyone.
However, being too friendly hurts
the working dynamic. You'll figure
out to what degree you can be serious
and playful. You'll also discover that
you innately know when to apply
the pressure and when to back off.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18).
You'll bridge gaps this week. Make
a conscious effort to express yourself
in a way that is easily understood by
your target audience. It may at first
feel unnatural to cater your message
to the specific culture you are trying
to reach. Key adjustments in tone
and language will be effective.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You
are both creative and mentally

flexible -- a winning combination.
You'll be asked to improvise. You're
so good at it that this could open
future doors for you. It all springs
from your stellar attitude. You are so
willing to adjust as needed to make
things work smoothly, and you leave
your ego out of the equation.
ARIES (March 21-April 19).
Although others are striving for
greater willpower, your will doesn't
need strengthening -- it's strong
enough. If anything, you could go
the other direction, allowing yourself
to be a little more flexible and open
to new ways of getting around life's
obstacles. Instead of powering
through, try a softer approach.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20).
Once you enter into a relationship,
lines get crossed, rules bend, new
preferences arise -- things change.
It's a natural part of interacting.
This is true of business relationships,
as well. When you know this upfront,
you can relax. Just keep showing up
with a willingness to work for the
best possible outcome.
GEMINI iIl.ny 21-June 21). This
week it will be so important to you
to figure out what the payoff will be
before you take the first step in your
journey. Choose your destination. It
probably won't be a place, but rather
a state of mind or a reward. You may
not wind up at the destination of your
choosing, but if you start out with a
goal, you'll land somewhere great.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). You
have a unique gift to share, exactly
as you are. Remember this when
you look in the mirror today. People
around you are responding to the
whole package of who you are, not to
the details of your face and body and
how they are arranged these days.
Give more thought to how you project
your soul.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You have a
mental picture of how this week will
unfold, though it will seldom happen


the Gabr. vr husa ic 98

the way you imagined it would. In
some instances, what actually occurs
will be even better than your original
idea. Regardless, what you learn in
the process will help you make more
accurate projections in the future.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Some
want to succeed financially so they
can help their loved ones. Others
want to help their loved ones, so
they succeed financially. For you,
motivation happens in all kinds of
ways, depending on your stage of life.
However it comes for you this week,
be grateful that you have a burning
fire in your belly.
ThisWeek's Birthdays: Throughout
your life, you've accumulated a vast
network of loved ones, friends and
acquaintances. The associations
you've made will tie together in
interesting ways to support you. You'll
come to appreciate yourself through
the eyes of others. Money will be
easier to come by starting now. You'll
make a magical love connection in
November, or perhaps you'll come to a
deeper understanding with someone
you already love. You'll be delighted
by many forms of entertainment in

Behind the Scenes at the Reef and
the Cockney Rebel Closings
By Cathy Salustri

The Reef Seafood Bar and Grill and
the Cockney Rebel both closed their
doors- apparently permanently-
earlier this month. Rumors as
to the closings abound, although
they contain little verifiable
According to state records, the
Reefs liquor license expired on
September 30. Former restaurant
owners, Flocan Investments
in South Pasadena, declared
bankruptcy on February 9 of this
year. Former workers say that the
bank sent in a management team
to run the operations, and the Reef
changed its menu and staff several
months ago.
Rumors that the Reefs former
owner got arrested for tax crimes
could not be wholly substantiated.
The Reefs former owners, Flocan,
list an Allan E. Hickey as the company's registered agent and manager;
the Pinellas County Sheriffs records indicate that the St. Petersburg police
arrested an Allan Earnest Hickey on September 22 of this year for theft of
state funds, which means, according to police, a failure to pay state taxes. The
judge set the bond at $50,000. Mr. Hickey pled not guilty and will stand trial
at 8:30 a.m. on November 8. The Gabber could not definitively determine if
these two men are the same man.
Arrests and new management aside, the Reef closed its doors October 1.
Locals report seeing food delivery trucks there late last week but there is no
word on the restaurant's reopening at this time.
The Cockney Rebel closed earlier this month as well. While rumors abound
that the business owners had to make repairs they could not afford, the former
business owner, Taina Brabant, did not return the Gabber's call. Ms. Brabant
is a Realtor with Baird Realty on St. Pete Beach. The property owners, Key
Note, are based in Gulfport. One of the partners, Joe Del Vecchio, told the
Gabber he did not wish to comment on the situation but would say that they
intended to rent out the restaurant again.

sinister tale of murder and deception.
Thomas Devereaux, a successful
architect and local contractor, and his
beautiful wife, Joan, have just moved
into their dream house with they
are visited by their new neighbors,
Carolyn and Jeff Symons. A
friendship quickly develops between
the two couples, but underneath
the cool, middle-American exterior,
something is truly rotten! A previous
sexual relationship between Joan
and a teenage lawn boy is revealed;
as is the fact that Thomas lets Joan
know that he is aware of this new
deception, and his violent, possessive
nature surfaces! He makes two
demands of his wife: One, she must
stop seeing Jeff. Two. She must kill
him. What follows is a diabolical plot
that continues to thicken through the
final showdown between a murderer
and an aggrieved widow.

Beach Commission Opposes Amendment 4
ST. PETE BEACH The St. Pete Beach city commission passed a resolution
on Oct. 12 opposing Amendment 4. The proposed amendment to the state
constitution, which will be voted on statewide Nov. 2,would require voter
approval to city or county government comprehensive plan changes.
The city commission's current resolution on Amendment 4 highlights the
city's comprehensive plan journey including votes on the degree of electorate
involvement in city comprehensive plan changes, ongoing litigation on the
voting, and the effect on the city. In January the commission passed a more
general resolution opposing Amendment 4 and urging citizens to vote "no."
Commissioner Marvin Shavlan drafted the current resolution and said he
thought it was important to memorialize what's happened in St. Pete Beach
related to decisions on comprehensive plan changes. The commission approved
the resolution 4-1. Mayor Mike Finnerty who opposed the resolution said he
was for educating people and not telling them how to vote.
The commission also discussed clarifying when they speak to the media and
distinguishing between sharing their personal opinion and the consensus view
of the commission. The discussion was prompted by comments Finnerty made
to a media outlet related to St. Pete Beach's land development journey and
Amendment 4.

and representatives from other candidates

garner support for the upcoming election.
The Buffalo Strange band played their

Senior Center Foundation Art Show
and Auction a Success

By Leigh Clifton
Zell Boggus places what was the winning bid on a Gulfport-themed piece of artwork
painted by Gulfport artist Helen Mullins. He and his wife Jo-Anne also bought one of
Mullins' displayed pieces.
The Gulfport Senior Center has yet another feather in their cap; the Art
Show and Auction it sponsored last Friday evening at the Hickman Theatre
was a rousing success. Over 140 people attended the event, which featured 24
local artists' works, several of whom donated pieces for a silent auction.
Twenty of the local artists were members of The Treasure Island Art Guild
including Art Guild President Pat McEntire, who donated several pieces for
auction. Gulfport artist and T.I. Art Guild member Helen Mullins donated two
small Gulfport scenes, which were quickly bid on. She also sold another hang-
ing piece.
Because of the large quantity of artwork, the displayed pieces filled the walls
of the Hickman lobby and continued around the corner to the Senior Center
activities room; the walls were alive with color and texture. Tables were set
up with light snacks as Senior Center member Joan Kujawa played piano in
the background.
"We were absolutely thrilled at the turnout," said Senior Center Supervisor
of Activities Cynthia Dean. "I thought it was a lovely affair."
The Art Show and Auction raised over $800.00 according to Dean, with more
still expected to come in. The event was sponsored by Allegro Senior Living.
The next Senior Center sponsored event will be the 5K Fun Run/Walk on
Saturday, November 6th. Registration is $15.00 in advance, $20.00 the day
of the run. The run/walk commences at 8 a.m. and there will be t-shirts and
goodies bags for all participants. For more information, please call the Senior
Center at 727-893-2237

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

Let's Have a Tea Party
This upcoming election is being
touted as a referendum on the
Tea Party movement. Most
of this comes from the more liberal
media and Democrats which, from the
beginning doubted it was a movement
at all. At first they tried to ignore it.
When that wasn't successful, they
labeled it a movement of extremists
and racists. A racist today, by the
way, is anyone who criticizes Barack
Obama or dares to express concerns
about ILLEGAL immigration. All
other racists go to the back of the
Byconstantrepetition (inpropaganda
terms called "The Big Lie" repeat
it often enough and it becomes the
truth), some of that has stuck. I
noticed the St. Pete Times in some
of their editorials use that approach.

Of course, the very fact that it is
being called a referendum on the Tea
Party and that the concern for the
horrors that might be inflicted upon
the political system, acknowledges a
certain power in the movement.
Let's be clear. I'm not a member
of the Tea Party. Nor is anyone else.
Some may have taken the label, or
organized a group around the theme,
orjoinedwith others taking onvarious
versions of it. Some touted the basic
theme and then called for a march
on Washington and it happened on
September 12, 2009.
The movement started with a
rant on February 19, 2009 from Rick
Santelli, an investor and analyst
for CNBC. The rant was about
government spending. It caught fire
across the nation and focused on
some basic elements: government
over spending, budget deficits and

the resulting national debt, taxes,
adherence to the U.S. Constitution,
government intrusion into citizen's
lives, and illegal immigration.
A year before those themes had
been espoused by libertarian Ron
Paul and others, but went no where.
Santelli's outburst (there was more
than one) galvanized feelings and, not
surprisingly, attracted conservatives.
The whole thing then morphed into
many shapes and sizes and espousers
and ultimately specifically entered
the political arena with banners
carried by candidates. Ullim.il.-ly,
the theme of the movement attracted
more than declared conservatives.
Let's face it. There is a problem
with government spending, the
national debt, taxes, government
intrusion, and illegal immigration.
And democrats aren't the only ones
responsible. Republicans are too. The
last congress (republicans in charge)
before George W. Bush was elected
increased spending 12 per cent. Each
consequent congress has increased
spending. We talk of the miracle of
compounding when we talk about
investments. The same thing happens
with government spending. We start
with millions which become billions
and before you know it we're talking
real money in the trillions.
This coming election may be
a referendum on the Tea Party
movement, but in essence it is a
referendum on the size and shape
of the federal government and all
governments below that level. Unless
one wants to concede that liberals
want bigger government, more
taxes, more debt, more intrusion,
and a luke-warm adherence to the
Constitution, this election is about
all the people regaining some control
of their destiny.

A Savory Sunday
By Melissa Lattman

With cooler temperatures and the
holidays approaching I was in need of
some culinary inspiration. I love to
cook but I get stuck easily in ruts of
repeating recipes. I needed to change
up my cooking routine. So I headed
101 miles east to Walt Disney World's
Epcot for its 15th Annual Food &
Wine Festival. I made a beeline for
the Festival Welcome Center, which
is near the space simulator to Mars.
Three different culinary demonstra-
tions on a recent Sunday afternoon
took me on a kitchen journey to sam-
ple chef made delicacies from around
the country.
From Chef Matt Carter of Zinc Bis-
tro in Scottsdale, Arizona I gained
pointers on how to make risotto as
he made and then let us sample his
"Seared Dry Pack Scallop and Span-
ish Chorizo Risotto" dish (pictured).
It was also just fun to sample a popu-

You & THE

By Robert J. Myers, Esq.
What Steps are Involved
in the Probate Process?
Part I
The first step in the probate process
is to determine whether the deceased
left a will, that is a legal document
prepared by a person before death
directing others how to distribute his
or her property after death. If a will
exists, the person is said to have died
Although determining that a will
does exist might be fairly easy, finding
the will may be more difficult. It is
important to locate the last will and
any amendments (called codicilss") to

it. Among the places where people
commonly keep wills are strong-
boxes, file cabinets, desk drawers,
and safe deposit boxes.
If you have agreed to serve as
the Personal Representative for
someone's estate, it is essential to
learn in advance where the person
keeps the will. If the will is in a
bank's safe deposit box, please keep
in mind that the law requires the
box to be sealed at the owner's death.
Because you need to get a court order
to open a safe deposit box, it is not
the best place to keep a will.
Within ten (10) days following
death, the will should be filed by
your attorney with the probate clerk
in the county where the person lived
at the time of death. In most cases,
however, there is no need to rush to
the probate clerk's office. If you have
recently lost a spouse or other loved
one, this is a stressful and vulnerable
time. You might want to wait a few
months, until you are feeling settled,
to begin the probate process. With
the passage of a few months' time,

you may be in a better position to

Any person entitled to the de-
ceased's property as an heir, as a
beneficiary named in a will, or as a
creditor (known as "interested per-
sons") can file a written request at
the probate clerk's office to begin a
probate proceeding. This written
request is typically called a "peti-
tion for probate administration."

than ever, Big Brothers Big Sisters
needs male volunteers to step up and
help kids.
Economic circumstances have
created a greater need for more
families to have professionally
backed long-term mentoring support.
Single-parent homes, neighborhoods
with gangs and crime, poor role
models and poverty can lead a child
to despair, lack of self-worth and
ultimately poor choices. In addition,
there are an increasing number of
children being raised by relative
caregivers in Pinellas County. These
caregivers are unexpectedly faced
with the challenge of raising children
with time and resource constraints.
Fortunately there are people who are
willing to step up and provide these
children with a positive, caring role
Mentoring is one of the most
rewarding, enjoyable and simple
things a volunteer can do. For as
little as one hour a week, volunteers
can add joy to the life of a child, and
ultimately, contribute greatly to his
or her potential. Together, "Bigs"
and "Littles" do simple, everyday
activities, such as going to a sporting
event, playing a game, going to a
park, or watching movies.

Pregnant Pigs and
Amendment Four
I understand if you're less than
thrilledabout another amendment
to our already-lengthy Florida
constitution. Our state constitution-
the fifth one we've had, by the way-
has 27 amendments, one of which
deals with the legalities of tethering
pregnant pigs. I support pigs' rights
as much as the next person, but I
don't know that it's the sort of thing
that belongs in a constitution.
Our national Constitution has
amendments abolishing slavery and
lowering the voting age to 18, but
here in Florida? Well, we're busy
legislating the rights of pigs (again,
not that pigs don't have rights, too).
No wonder other states just roll their
eyes at us.
Pregnant pigs' constitutional rights
aside, many of those amendments
belong in our constitution.
Amendments passed with the
intention of protecting the Everglades
or keeping navigable waters in
the hands of the state rather than
individuals, for example, carry that
I'm fairly certain Amendment Four
does, too. If you're not sure you
understand the amendment- and
how could you, with the stilted ballot
language we use to punish those
responsible enough to vote- you're
not alone. There's a lot of I think
the technical term is crap- out there
about the amendment. For example,
if you've heard that your city won't
be able to create so much as a four-
way stop without a countywide

Gabber October21 October 27, 2010

referendum, you've heard some of
the crap.
Here's all you need to know to
understand Amendment Four: It
says that before a local government
can change its comprehensive land
use plan or create a new one, the
voters must agree to the change. So
if a plan that says that beachfront
property can only have single-family
homes on it, the city can't let Wal-
Mart build there unless the majority
of the voters agree to it. Currently, it
only takes a majority vote of the city
commission or town council.
Of course, opponents of Amendment
Four say that voting for that sort
of environmental nightmare would
be political suicide, but take a look
around the state: we're a study in
career politicians selling the state
out from under us. Florida's lack
of an environmental conscience is
Consider this: our beaches are
so built up that we spend billions
of dollars "renourishing" them so
that the hotels and a few select
homeowners can have a wide expanse
of sandy beach. Public dollars spent
for the good of private industry
whilst employing environmentally
questionable practices? Welcome to
the Sunshine State.
Drive the Tamiami Trail through
the Everglades in March. You'll see
the north side rich and verdant and
watery and the south side dying and
dry. Why? Well, because we need
the water for sugar cane and cattle
ranching. Yeah, whatever, "the only
one in the world" and all that, but
what do panthers and a national
treasure matter when we need to
divert water to big business?
All that aside, the amendment's
detractors say voters simply don't
care enough to vote on every little
change, that it will be too costly
to maintain, and that it allows for
developers to manipulate every vote.
But what they fear is a loss of control,
some because they think voters aren't
smart enough to make good decisions
and others because, well, they don't
want to give up the control.

Now, no disrespect to the politicians
who haven't buried their consciences
(they're like unicorns; they do exist,
but you really have to believe), but
I think that it scares the hell out of
Tallahassee to allow the common
man a choice in whether or not we
continue to sell the state to developers
one natural treasure at a time.
If you still aren't sure, look at where
you see those "Vote No" signs. Every
hotel along the beach has at least
one. So does undeveloped acreage
for sale. These are people who don't
want to have to get voter approval
before they ask local governments to
bend or break the rules for them.
The reality of Florida is this:
politicians have bought and sold
this state without batting an eye
for almost 200 years, bulldozing
beyond what infrastructure supports
and creating every environmental
problem we have along the way. The
things that made this state worth
calling home and visiting the
beaches, the water, and the wildlife
- are threatened by our "sold to the
highest bidder" mentality.
So when I hear that someone thinks
Amendment Four is too drastic, I
get that. But I also get that it's no
more drastic than the dredge and
fill operations that destroyed Boca
Ciega Bay in the 20th century. No
more drastic than the sugar cane and
ranching practices that reduced the
Everglades from a sweeping swamp of
biodiversity spanning from Orlando
to Biscayne Bay to the comparative
puddle that remains.
I love Florida, especially what's left
of it. I love the gritty fish camps in
the state's interior and the barrier
islands that dot our coast. I love
knowing there's a saurian killer
waiting for me in every river. I can't
bear to lose any more of the state to
people who don't care that they're
selling our legacy out from under us.
They had their chance. They failed.
It's our turn now.
And that is why, despite the costs
and inconveniences, I want to see
Amendment Four pass. I think it
belongs in our constitution just as
much as those pregnant pigs.
Maybe even more.

Boyd Hill Autumn Harvest Days

By Leigh Clifton
The Morales family of St. Pete: 5 year old Alejandro, 13 year old Ariel, 2 year old Azariah,
mom Lily, 7-week-old Anthony, 3 year-old Aidan and father Jesus Morales sit in the pumpkin
patch at the Boyd Hill Autumn Harvest Days
More than 1000 people wandered through Boyd Hill last Saturday afternoon
as the park celebrated the annual Autumn Harvest Days festival. Replete
with fun activities for the kids like find the rat in the hay pile, sack races,
candle dipping, a pumpkin carving contest and hay bale maze, the Autumn
Harvest Days was a perfect day of family fun. There were vegetable vendors,
craftspeople, face painting and hot dogs and hamburgers hot off the grill. The
event was serenaded by the New Horizons Band of Eckerd College, who played
traditional and inspirational music all afternoon.
But there's more going on at Boyd Hill, according to Linda Seufert, the Parks
and Rec Manager at the park. The Endicott House, one of Boyd Hill's main
attractions is getting a face lift, thanks to a $50,000.00 matching grant from
the State of Florida via Penny for Pinellas. The home will get some much-
needed shoring up; it was sinking and the result was several structural cracks
that will now be repaired. Another new addition to the park will be a stationary
bathroom building. Built to resemble an old gas station, circa early 1900's, the
building will also feature one of Boyd Hill's old Ford cars out front.
"It will look just like an old-time gas station, with pumps and everything,"
said Seufert. "We've needed a permanent bathroom building for some time. It
should be ready in about six months."
The Morales family from St. Pete brought all the kids, including seven -week
-old baby Anthony, who was dressed like a pumpkin.
"This is so much fun for the kids," said mom Lily. "We've come every year for
the past four. It's become a family tradition for us," she said smiling.
Five year old Alejandro loves the print shop; he likes to spell his name in the
block letters printers used to use to print publications.
Autumn Harvest days reminds us that Halloween and winter are just around
the corner. But for now, we'll take this glorious October fall weather.

BCHS Drama Club presents Leading Ladies
The BCHS Pirate Players will be presenting the hilarious full-length comedy
Leading Ladies by Ken Ludwig November 17-20 at 7:00pm in the main audi-
torium. Tickets are $5 and will be sold at the door.
This farce centers on two down-on-their-luck Shakespearean actors, Leo
Clark and Jack Gable. The pair discover through a newspaper that Florence,
an elderly ailing woman, has been unable to find Max and Steve, her sister's
children, in order to include them in her multi-million dollar inheritance. They
decide to pose as Max and Steve to claim portions of it. When they discover
that "Max" and "Steve" are actually "Maxine" and "Stephanie," they continue
on, undaunted, posing as women. Things get even more complicated when Leo
falls for Florence's actual niece Meg, while Jack swoons over Florence's part-
time aide Audrey. This show has the necessary ingredients for a madcap farci-
cal romp that will keep you laughing all night long (recommended for audi-
ences aged 13 years and older).
