On Monday, October 25, at ap-

ployee found a deceased female while
conducting morning cleanup at the
Treasure Island Beach Pavilion on
West Gulf Blvd.
Investigators have identified the de-
ceased as 50 year old Linda J. Wood,
of St. Louis, Missouri. There is no in-
dication or evidence of foul play. The
Pinellas County Medical Examiner's
Officer responded to the scene. The

Notification has been made to fam-
ily members in Missouri and Dunnel-
lon, FL.

Minor Plan Changes
at Bank Site
The St. Pete Beach city commis-
sion approved a couple of changes to
a proposed bank site in Dolphin Vil-
lage. The location of existing power
lines at the proposed Chase Bank
branch require a change in the site's
electrical transformer location.
With the relocation of the trans-
former the neighboring Chick-fil-A
will get a wider drive aisle and more
parking without a loss of green space,
according to a letter by the bank de-
veloper's architect Chris Kirschner.

Bogie Hosts First
Round Playoffs
By Leigh Clifton
In the first round of District play,
Boca Ciega Girls Varsity volleyball
team beat Gibbs Tuesday night
to move on to host undefeated
Northeast High on Wednesday
night. The last time Bogie played
Northeast, they were defeated.
If Bogie can get past a tough
Northeast team, they will then play
the winner of Pinellas Park/Largo
for the first place. Then it would be
on to the 5A Regionals next week.
Coach Lauren Widener is optimistic
but knows that the girls have to bring
their A game against Northeast or
they will finish the season a possible
disappointing 4th place.

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.

Adding Yellow &
White Lines
St. Pete Beach plans to have pave-
ment markings replaced on all the
city streets at least every three
years. The city commission approved
a contract on Oct. 26 ordering double
yellow center and solid white outside
lines from Traffic Control Products of
Florida for :' 17.76.

Beach 8th Ave.
Development Standards
ST. PETE BEACH- The city com-
mission continued to Nov. 23 the first
reading of an ordinance establishing
development standards for the 8th
Avenue Community Redevelopment
Area, which also includes 9th Av-
enue. The purpose of the 8th Avenue
District is to encourage and promote
the existing mixed-use development
and architecture of the area as well
as encourage the development of va-
cant or under-developed lots.
The continuance came when Com-
missioner Bev Garnett brought up
concerns she heard from residents
and board member on setbacks (the
distance structures and amenities
like parking are from property lines
and streets).
"You know what's uncomfortable is
this did go through a two board pro-
cess, "Vice Mayor Jim Parent said.
"Now it is getting funneled through
Garnett said some of the people who
spoke with her were on the boards
and had shared the concerns about
the language in the ordinance on
setbacks and she was not sure what
had happened in the process that the
concerns did not make it into the or-
City Manager Mike Bonfield said
the last minute changes were a prob-
lem he has observed in his nine-year
tenure at the city. "That's why you
have boards," Bonfield said. "This
last minute swirling the pot has led
to some of the problems we have
(with litigation)."
The extra 30 days will give the city
staff time to draft the language to
reflect in the zoning a homogenous
streetscape similar to what exists
currently on 8th Avenue.

Drinking Outside Okay
at Corey Ave. Bar
ST. PETE BEACH- The city commis-
sion approved The Swigwam Beach
Bar's request for outdoor seating for
customers on the public sidewalk ad-
jacent to the 336 Corey Avenue es-
tablishment. The bar was formerly
located on the beach.
"I am just requesting the privilege
of having my customers sit and have
a drink on the four Adirondack chairs
in front of my property...I am a new
business only open since March 17,"
Owner Rob Williams said.
People spoke mostly in favor of the
provision for drinking outside.
"Sometimes we like to step outside
and smoke and have a cold one, said
a patron. "We are not low lifes, some
of us are in designer clothes...he has
a great little neighborhood pub."
Merchant Sally Adams said, A
little bit of the beach has come to
Corey Avenue...I think the chairs
look great."
The commission shared concerns
about blocking the sidewalk based
on complaints they heard from resi-
dents. A bench will be moved from
the area to help with the pedestrian
flow. The commission's approval can
be withdrawn with 30 days notice.

Merry Pier Lease
Up for Bid
ST. PETE BEACH- The city commis-
sion decided to put out for bid leasing
Merry Pier. The commission decided
not to grant a 5-year extension of the
existing Merry Pier lease agreement
with Dolphin Landings, A Charter
Boat Center, Inc. A few businesses
sub lease from Dolphin Landings in-
cluding a sport-fishing boat, a party
fishing boat and a shuttle service.
The boat owners shared how they
thought the city might benefit from
direct leases with them without hav-
ing a landlord in the middle. The boat
owners also shared how the landlord,
Dolphin Landings, manages both
boat rental areas in town. Dolphin
Landings shared that it had not yet
recouped money it had invested in
making improvements at Merry Pier.
The city commission decided it was in
the best interest of the city to put the
bid back out there for the pier, which
is located in Pass-A-Grille.

St. Pete Beach City Commission Meeting

Public Comment

& Council Quotes

"I hate that we spent $440,000 in the last fiscal year." -Vice Mayor
Jim Parent, on the amount of money spent on litigation last fiscal year.
In Fiscal Year 2010- 85 percent of the legal fees were related to changes
and votes on the city's comprehensive plan.

"You can't retreat now you are doing a good (job) to do whatever
you can to make it right." Resident Paul Pfister- encouraging the
commission as they try to resolve litigation.

"How many of those 541 units do you think would have been
sold?...I think we have a great deal to be thankful for the foresight
of the citizens." Resident Bill Pyle- showed pictures of high-rise con-
dominiums, which were proposed previously for development in the city.
He said the cost of litigation on the comprehensive plan is less than if the
city was dealing with partially finished or vacant towers.

"We are the only ones who pay a toll and we are the only ones who
don't have a brand new bridge (in Pinellas County)."- Resident
Deborah Schechner, expressing frustration on the lack of having a new
Pinellas Bayway Bridge when other communities in the county like Bel-
leair Beach have new bridges.

"There is no good reason why we would withhold information
from our residents.. I am just saying trust, how can we trust you?"
- Resident Ms. Edney on the city's stopping sending an e-mail dump of
all commission e-mails, which apparently was distributed to around 24
people. Printed e-mails will be available in city hall. Copying fees and
disabled people getting to city hall were expressed as concerns. E-mails
and other city communication can still be requested as always from the
city, the city manager said.

"Its too easy to be perfect when you think in hindsight."
- Vice Mayor Jim Parent, on legal fees and legal strategy related to
developing the city's storm water assessment account. The City Attorney
withdrew the request for an additional $18,513.10 in legal fees

"The bus shelters have shipped believe it or not and the first one
will hopefully be installed in Pass-A-Grille sometime next week."
-City Manager Mike Bonfield, giving an update on the arrival of new bus

Special Meeting
Addresses Code
By Melissa Lattman
ST. PETE BEACH- The St. Pete
Beach City Commission held a special
meeting on October 20 to discuss code
enforcement with its special master.
Attorney John Elias has served as the
city's special master since 1999 and
has practiced law for more than 40
Elias reviewed the special master
process with the city commission. The
special master is there to take the facts
in a code enforcement case and make
a determination if there is a violation.
The process can include a notice of
violation, a fact-finding hearing, time
to bring the issue into compliance
and a fine imposition hearing. If the
violation is brought into compliance
then some of the steps in the process
may not occur. The special master has
to follow due process, giving proper
notice, and ensuring a fair hearing,
Elias said.
Commissioner Marvin Shavlan
asked why couldn't the fine go back to
the notice of violation, if the party is
found guilty?
Elias said that is possible and they
have been doing so more recently.
The commission asked about ways
of getting code enforcement fines
paid. Liens can attach to any property
the person owns in Pinellas County.
However, Elias said there couldn't be
a lien on homesteaded property.
Shavlan asked about legal
maneuvering, which can prolong the
code enforcement process.
Elias said if they don't grant a
continuance when requested there
may be an appellate issue even
though the city code creating the
special master ordinance provides for
requesting a continuance ten days
ahead. There is still practical case, he
Shavlan said it is just some of the
residents get frustrated when this
sort of thing keeps going on and on.
Elias said he understood, but he had
to follow due process.
Commissioner Jim Parent asked
the special magistrate to consider the
case of a public safety issue, like open
swimming pools and would he pull the
case out of the once a month meeting
cycle to resolve it sooner. Elias said he
would consider that option.
The commission asked about
Gabber October28 November 3, 2010

how repeat offenders are handled.
Commissioner Beverly Garnett
mentioned a property where there
were issues with an unkempt yard
dating to 2002 as well as intermittent
construction with construction related
violations for the last couple of years.
The property owner was currently
being fined $250 daily since summer
but elevating to repeat offender status
would bring the fine to $500 daily.
Elias said to get repeat offender
status and the $500 fine, it needs to be
a violation of same exact code and the
notice needs to contain that the fee
could increase. The repeat violation
has to be within a 5-year period and
there has to be a finding of guilt.

"How do we keep this from
happening in our community, when
it sits there for so very long?," asked
Mayor Mike Finnerty asked the
special master to prosecute to the
full extent of the law. Finnerty said,
"It seems almost like a disease and
if you don't contain the disease it's
going to spread."
Elias' office is in Clearwater. His
law practice includes litigation and
municipal matters. He serves as
the city attorney for Belleair Shore,
Kenneth City and Seminole. Elias
has practiced in Pinellas County
since 1974.

Robin Roads, St. Pete: "I like to
celebrate it but I haven't done much
since I moved here from Cape Coral
two years ago. I just don't know that
manypeople here. I usedto get dressed
up in a costume and go to parties at
friends' houses. Where I live now, kids
don't come into my neighborhood;
there aren't any street lights at all
and it's really dark. It's kind of spooky.
I was thinking about digging a ditch,
getting inside and have my head
sticking out with a bucket over it and
scaring people when they walked by.
But I was afraid someone would kick
the bucket. So I think I'm just going to
hang out instead."

Zahaira Gold, Gulfport: "Normally
I celebrate it with my family. Every
year we go to a big Halloween party
at a family friend's house; they
usually have at least 30-45 people.
Sometimes I dress up if I can find
a costume. Then again, I might just
raid my closet and put together an
outfit and wear some crazy makeup.
My mom, father and brother all dress
up too. These friends turn their house
into a haunted house and everybody
from the whole neighborhood comes
by to see it and party. It's scary but
a lot of fun."

A Haunting Tale of Hope

won Gulfport's Best Haunted House Award 2010 and will be open
Saturday and Sunday, from 6p.m. to 10 p.m. It is located at 900 63r
Gulfport. Donations of canned goods, school supplies and Suncoast Hos
accepted in honor of "L'il" Jamie, the daughter of one of the homeowne

Every October the girls at 900 63rd St. S in Gulfport wait
with zany, impatient glee to get started transforming their
Spanish-style house into the self proclaimed "Gulfport Home
for the Criminally Insane"; a madcap and wacky haunted
house that every Halloween seems to scare the living
daylights out of visitors who dare to venture inside. Home
owners Candy Nutter, Kim Schnitker and Cindy Switalski
have amassed a huge collection of fear memorabilia including
three real coffins (don't ask) a fog machine, numerous
chainsaws, sans chains, and every piece of (fake) dead body
part they have ever been able to get their hands on in the
past five years of haunting Gulfport.
But those items are only the tip of the proverbial ice-berg;
the ladies have a huge shed out back that is filled to capacity
with all sorts of ghoul and guts. The imagination the ladies
have put into the scaring of Gulfport is fun-creepy and PC at
the same time; each year they choose a theme from current
events to tailor their frightfully scary designs around. Last
year it was Obama health care; this year it's the BP Oil
But with all the good fun, unearthly costumes, fake blood,
(one would hope) and macabre scenes of ghostly terror inside
the house, there is a serious message in their madness. Kim's
partner Jamie McCary has a heavy heart this Halloween;
her only daughter "Li'l" Jamie died suddenly last December
at 31, leaving a 12 year old daughter Adrianna, a grieving
mother and a myriad of questions no one can answer. What
caused her to lapse into unconsciousness and then suffer
several strokes? What caused a 31 year old to suddenly go
comatose and ultimately die at such a young age?
Jamie, her partner Kim, Cindy and Candace are all
professionals; mostly in the medical profession and they
have a natural affinity to nurture. They started the Haunted
House as a safe place for the neighborhood kids to come to
for trick or treating and just to hang out after the initial fear

S subsided. But they all have always worked with
charities like the Christ Cornerstone Church
on 62nd collecting can goods for the homeless
and school supplies for kids in the Dominican
Republic, donating them from the collection
barrels they put out in front of the haunted
"These kids don't even have pencils or paper,"
Candace said. "We collect shoe boxes and fill
them with school supplies and Christmas
presents and send them to the D.R. Christ
Cornerstone Church has a missionary there and
they get distributed to the children who need

feed the homeless at the church and collect

d St. South in "We always ask for small things too, like
pice are being travel shampoo, creme rinse, toothpaste and
rs' partners. body wash. You can't believe what it means to
a homeless person to be able to wash and be clean," Jamie
This year, in addition to the collection bins for school supplies
and canned goods the ladies keep on the front sidewalk of the
haunted house, there is a wish for another donation. It is to
Suncoast Hospice and it is in honor of "Li'l" Jamie. When
she was in St. Pete General and it was determined that she
would not recover, they moved her to Woodside Hospice to be
cared for there.
"Woodside Hospice took care of my daughter so beautifully
in her last days; they were like Angels," Jamie said gratefully
with tears welling up in her eyes. "They were so attentive and
compassionate with her. I can never thank them enough."
The girls and ghouls will be accepting donations of cash
and checks made out to Suncoast Hospice in honor of
Jamie's daughter. Dunkin Donuts of South Pasadena will be
donating 50 dozen donuts for the haunted house visitors and
Walgreens on 34th has donate 1000 decks of playing cards
for the girls to give out as thank you gifts. They also have
about 1000 small First Aid Kits they will also distribute in
appreciation as well.
"This year we wanted to give back and honor Jamie's
daughter," Kim said. "Adrianna, Li'l Jamie's daughter is
usually our hostess for the house, but she won't be with us
this year," she said wistfully. "We sure will miss her too."
The Gulfport Home for the Criminally Insane will be
open for haunting Saturday and Sunday, 6p.m. to 10 p.m.
Located at 900 63rd St. S, you can't possibly miss it. It's
the one with bloody body parts hanging off the walls, BP oil
derricks spewing oil, dummies in bloody HAZMAT suits and
chainsaw-bearing local teenagers Camdon and Peyton Hay,
Jesse Mosier, Ricky Miller, Adam Hildabrand and Angela
Janes, all who officially call the house "AWESOME."
Oh, I almost forgot to mention; the house won Gulfport's
contest for Best Haunted House. Naturally.

ItStoroscoDe Guide

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). It's
hard for some people to be vulnerable
enough to speak from the heart, but
it's easy for you. This week is lucky
for you when you take advantage of
the skill often. Tell your loved ones
how much you care for them. It's
something everyone needs to hear
once in a while, and you'll be much
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21).
There's more noise and excitement
around than you care to participate
in this week. You're very attractive,
and everyone seems to need your
attention. The more you try to do
things alone the more they call. Take
measures to protect your sleep from
interruption. Playing nature sounds
while you sleep could help.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19).
If someone close to you has a jealous
impulse regarding you, you might find
it flattering. But when it's you who is
feeling jealous, the whole dynamic is
uncomfortable. Luckily, you are able
to attain a level of detachment this
week so that you can get ahold of
your emotions and make them work
for you.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). There
are many intellectually gifted people
around you, and their intelligence
comes in various forms. You love it
when a person shows social savvy, is
a whiz in the kitchen or has a way
with children. Because you appreciate
different ways in which people exhibit
I.Q., you may be the smartest of them
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). There's
an internal argument going on
regarding your work, your personal
life and finding a comfortable
balance between the two. You may
even consider combining two parts
of your life in an interesting new
configuration. You're exceedingly
creative and will come up with
brilliant solutions.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). It's good

to know whom you can depend on and
who you'll let depend on you. One
friend in particular comes to mind.
You know this person inside and
out and can predict him or her well.
There is comfort in familiarity. This
week, you will be either a borrower
or a lender to this person, and either
way, all will be well.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20).
You'll make a breakthrough in a
relationship this week. This will be
a subtle but unmistakable step to
the next level. One caution: Talking
about it with the other person will
spoil the magic. Just affirm the
current state silently to yourself. A
new rhythm will be established over
the next three weeks.
GEMINI (11.ny 21-June 21). Loved
ones will tend to agree with you on
most matters this week, making this
an excellent time to forward your
agenda. If you don't think you have
an agenda, consider this: There are
things you want, and you need the
help and support of your loved ones
to make these things happen. There's
nothing wrong with that.
CANCER (June 22-July 22).
Relationships work best when you
take turns leading and following. You
take control when the matter at hand
is one of your specialties. If the issue
is important to a loved one, you back
off and let him or her take over. It
gives you no pleasure to cross anyone
on purpose. It's a winning style, and
loved ones appreciate you.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Mostly, you
have no problem speaking your heart.
Your natural tendency to be effusive
and enthusiastic allows you to open
the gates of your emotions and let
the words fly. This week, there will
be some reason why you can't exactly
say all that's on your mind -- perhaps
to protect another person's feelings.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). The
more prepared you are the more
confident you'll be. Others will notice


the Gabr. vr husa ic 98

your confidence and will be drawn
in by it. Conversations will start,
relationships will be kindled, and
opportunities will come your way. It
all happens because you take the time
to prepare for the events of your life.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Life is
like an amusement park that has
too many rides to cover in a 12-hour
period. There will be time to explore
your options, just not every option all
in one day. Your best bet is to learn to
narrow your focus to one activity and
be happy with your choice for as long
as it takes to complete the action.
This Week's Birthdays: You have
deep compassion for your fellow man
and will be compelled to commit
good deeds accordingly all year long.
Though you do none of it for your own
personal gain, the laws of karma will
favor you. November brings a mix of
adventuresome experiences that will
be both eye-opening and spiritually
fulfilling. Your personal life gets a
lift from new energy in December,
likely in the form of an optimistic and
sweet friend. Travel in December and
June. Educational horizons expand
in August.

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.

Public Pension System
Stiffs the Taxpayers
Don't skewer Double Dippers,
skewer the elected officials,
thepolicymakers, who created
the system the Double Dippers use.
Double dipping, for those who might
not know, is the practice of retiring
from government then being rehired
by the government. The employee
gets a pension and a new salary plus
benefits. I don't know if new pension
benefits accrue, but I suspect they do
if the person is hired at a different
government level.
The illustration used by the St. Pete
Times the other day pointed to a
retired state legislative employee who
was hired at $150,000 a year while
receiving about $75,000 in pension
benefits a year. The employee had
worked for 30 years for the state.
That means he, or she, could be as
young as 52 (or maybe younger) and
receiving retirement benefits.
That retirement (probably plus
medical benefits) money will continue
until death which might not be for
another 30 years. Social security

benefits will kick in at age 62 or 65
in addition. Oh, did I mention that
this employee also got a $400,000
"cash-out" bundle with retirement. I
don't know if they get annual "cost-
of-living" raises.
This is not an isolated example. Such
public pension plans exist at almost
all levels of Florida government.
And, they exist at almost all levels of
government throughout the United
States. Pensions like this don't exist
in private industries because private
industries could not survive. Neither
can government.
In February, according to the
Associated Press, the Pew Center
on States released a survey of
state (only state, not local) post-
employment benefits. It revealed a
one trillion funding deficit. That's
before the effect of the investment
market crash. The survey stated
that many states will have "lower
bond ratings, less money available
for services, higher taxes and the
specter of worsening problems in the
Interestingly, the study cited
Florida as one of the best although

* K^^^S^^

the latest figures show that Florida's
pension are only 88 per cent funded.
Remember, though, medical benefits
aren't pre-funded. Illinois was the
worst. Recently, it cappedpensions at
$106,000 and forbid double dipping.
In Pennsylvania, taxpayers are
going to have to kick in about 30
per cent of annual teachers' salary
to meet their obligations. They have
been putting in about 4 to 5 per cent.
Since salaries make up about 80 per
cent of a school budget, the cost will
be staggering. So will the taxes.
It's insane to be paying retirement
benefits to people at age 50 or 55.
As I noted earlier, these people will
likely be receiving pensions for more
years than they worked. Most private
companies, unless there is a buy-
out, don't pay pension benefits until
age 65, and don't provide medical
benefits either. Notable exceptions
were the pre-bankruptcy General
Motors and ('hy i --I- corporations.
It's easy to yell at the employes,
but the problem is the employers
which are the elected officials. The
public is to blame, too. When public
employes' unions threaten to strike
neither the politicians nor the public
can tolerate a loss of public services.
Since government is a monopoly and
employes are allowed to strike, the
pressure is obvious.
Of course, public employee unions
help fund many of the elected
officials' campaigns, most of them
Democrats now. The latest figures
on this national election showed that
public employee' unions and private
unions are collectively the largest
campaign spenders.
So, it's no coincidence that pension
and medical benefits are so high
relative to what is paid in private
industry. It's no coincidence that
federal employes, by category, earn
significantly more than those in
private industry.
However, whether federal, state,
or local costs, it is the average
taxpayer, privately employed, who
pays the taxes. Yes, public employes
pay taxes, but the tax they pay still
comes from the private sector.
Just who is the public servant?

Gulfport Development Code Questions

By Cathy Salustri
Last week, Gulfport City Council
approved a development code for
the city. Next week the city will
have its final vote on whether or
not to approve the code. We asked
Community Development Director
Fred Metcalf to answer a few
questions about the proposed code
and what it could mean for Gulfport.
Mr. Metcalfs answers follow each
bold question.

What is a development code?
Development Code is generally
another word for zoning code or
land development regulation. A
development agreement is a tool
that allows for negotiation of a
development proposal and ensures
agreement by both the applicant
and the governing body what
processes will be involved and
what the end product will look like.
Why does the city need one? It
ensures what a project will look
like. A developer may state during
a public hearing how a project will
look. Based on those statements the
city may change the land use and
zoning designation of the property;
however, there is no guarantee that
the project will be built as specified
at the hearing. Without some kind
of legal agreement, once the land
use and zoning are changed the only
obligation the developer is under is
to build according to the zoning code,
which may not regulate many of the
itemsthe developer saidtheywoulddo.

Who sets the rules in a code
or agreement?
Ultimately, city council approves an
agreement. The agreement process
requires public hearings to gather
citizeninput. It does not take the place
of land use or zoning hearings. It is
done in concert with those hearings
and actually requires more hearings.

Gabber October28 November 3, 2010

Who has the final say on a
development code?
City council.

You described it as a
performance agreement; could
you please elaborate?
It allows everyone to agree, up-
front, as to what a development
will look like. If the developer
does not perform, or do what they
agreed to, the development cannot
take place. It does not absolve
the developer from meeting all
applicable codes.

What cities similar in size and
character to Gulfport have a
development code?
Dunedin, Clearwater, Largo,
Pinellas Park and St. Petersburg.

Will every developer need to
agree to one of these?
No. Development agreements are
typicallypartofalanduse amendment
process. The city doesveryfew ofthese.

How does it relate to
Amendment Four?
Amendment Four would affect land
use amendments, not development

Why is this a good thing for the
It allows for another development tool.

Doesn't this allow developers
to get special overrides and
The council has ultimate authority
over the development agreement and
would have to address any variances
as part of the overall review process.

Can a development agreement
change the land use without a
vote from council?
No. A land use change would
still require a separate action.

Can you give an example of how
this will help the city maintain
its character?
There is no zoning regulation that
addresses character. A land use
change could be made based solely on
statements made at a public hearing
about how the project will look and
how it will fit in with the character.
Illustrations and conceptual plans
are often used at these hearings.
Without a legal agreement, there is
no way to guarantee the developer
will follow through with any promises
made during the land use and zoning
amendment process.

Gulfport city council will vote
on whether or not to adopt
a development code at the
November 2 council meeting,
held at 7 p.m. in city council

By Robert J. Myers, Esq.
What Steps are Involved
in the Probate Process?
Part II
This Article is Part II in our review
of the Florida probate process and
follows our last feature on probate.
The court authorizes a Personal
Representative to administer
the deceased's estate. A Personal
Representative, also called an
executor/executrix, assumes the
responsibility for closing an estate
as soon as possible in an effort to
distribute the estate's assets to those
who rightfully inherit them without
delay. This person is critical to the
probate process.
Personal representatives have a
legal obligation to perform their
duties honestly and efficiently.
The heirs to an estate can hold a
Personal Representative personally
accountable for harming the estate's

rf i TfaT 'l

financial standing by neglect or
deliberate action.
A will typically names the deceased's
choice for Personal Representative,
and Probate Courts will normally
honor this choice. When no will exists,
or if the Personal Representative
named in the will declines to serve
or cannot serve, the court has the
authority to appoint a Personal
Representative Once the Personal
Representative is appointed, the
Probate Court recognizes the Personal
Representative's authority to act on
behalf of the deceased's estate. The
Court issues a document, called
"lettersofadministration," identifying
the Personal Representative as the
estate's official representative. A
Personal Representative can show
this document to a bank officer, for
example, to gain access to a checking
Needless to say, the Personal
Representative should be a trusted
family member or close friend who
will act to carry out the wishes of the
A person who decides that he/
she does not want to be a Personal
Representative can decline the
appointment. Aback-up, or successor,
Personal Representative is then
appointed. Similarly, if the Personal
Representative feels that the job
involves more effort than one person

can handle, the Court may appoint a
co-Personal Representative.
The Personal Representative is
responsible for formal notification
and the publishing of public notices
in newspapers to inform potential
heirs and creditors about the probate
proceeding. After giving notice,
waiting periods follow. Creditors,
heirs, and others can file their claims
against the estate during these
periods of time.

Gulfport Fire and Rescue work to get 81 year old Elisabeth Geyer out of her car (left). She
was struck by Jonathan Kaminski, who ran the Stop sign in his PT Cruiser and hit her on 15th
Ave. South last Friday morning. He was cited for failing to stop at a Stop sign. Geyer was
upgraded from critical to stable condition Monday afternoon.

An accident at 15th Ave. South and
54th St. South in Gulfport left 81 year
old Elisabeth Geyer in critical condi-
tion last Friday morning. According
to Gulfport Police Public Informa-

was traveling east in a Mercedes on
15th St. when Jonathan Kaminski,
driving a PT Cruiser heading north,
ran through the stop sign at 54th.

Fire and Rescue and Gulfport PD, as
well as South Pasadena responded
to the scene. Both Geyer and Kamin-
ski were taken to Bayfront Hospital.
Geyer sustained a lacerated spleen

Monday afternoon. Kaminski's in-

running a Stop sign.

so hard, it sounded like an explosion.
So many people run this stop sign,"

she said. "I'm still picking up car
parts from an accident last month at
this same corner. A car took out two

Another resident of the area, Lau-

"I see people run this Stop sign all

Progress Energy was called out to
inspect the telephone pole stabilizing
wires hit by Kaminski's vehicle.
"We wanted to make sure that the

RUSH'S Reality

A satirical look at the world around us.

By Anne Rush

B y the time this paper is
published next week, the
elections will be over. But
between today and next Tuesday, I
urge you to get out and vote if you
haven't already. I feelverypassionate
and patriotic about this.
It's not my business who you vote
for or what your political leanings
are. But I view it as a right and a
privilege, as well as a duty and a
My youngest daughter who's a
freshman in high school this year
was given an assignment in her civics
class which in essence was to describe
what makes America different than
every other country on earth. Heavy
stuff for a 14 year old, I know.
After all, there are other democracies
on the planet. There are citizens
from other countries who make
phenomenal contributions in the
fields of science, math, literature,
sports, the arts and entertainment.
And everyone has a McDonald's now,
don't they?
Turns out my daughter's assignment
was heavy stuff for even me. So I did
what I usually do when searching out
words of wisdom or deep insights. I
went to my now 82 year old father for

After some thoughtful
contemplation, this is what he said:
"Have her look at the Declaration
of Independence and the Bill of
Rights. The Declaration creates the
justification for the establishment of
this country (i.e., people have rights
which come from a higher authority
than governments) and The Bill
of Rights which places limitations
upon the powers that a government
has over the people. These principles
are unique to The United States
of America and do not exist in any
other country on earth. These rights
and governmental limitations set our
people apart from all other peoples
on the planet."
God love my dad for his ability to
cut to the chase of the assignment
and to express it in all its simplistic
beauty. Because that's what it is. The
founding of this country is at once a
plain and simple idea yet beautifully
profound and unique.
I once worked with a woman
who was very vocal on all things
political. She could go on for hours
with her interpretation of ideologies
and so forth. She was extremely
passionate on the subject, and quite
entertaining, I might add. Imagine

Get Out and Vote!

my dismay when a coworker told me
last week that she never once voted.
Shame on her.
I won't apologize for the burst
of patriotism that I felt when I
accompanied my oldest son to
the polls for his first time in the
presidential election in 2008. He had
just turned 18.
With the mid-terms this year, he
says he doesn't want to be a part
of it. He says they're all a bunch of
no-good crooks, so what's the point?
He may be right, but I tried to tell
him about the lesser of two evils
posture. I suggested that maybe we
all should be a little more involved
in the primary process. I tried to
tell him that if he doesn't like the
way things are, he has no right to
complain if he doesn't vote. I tried to
tell him that people have died for the
freedoms that we enjoy and that the
least we could do is participate in the
electoral process. He's starting to get
more interested as the calendar ticks
closer to election day. We'll see.
I sometimes wonder lately how our
founding fathers could really have
been so smart. Especially without
the internet and satellites and all.
I mean, the whole "One if by land,
Two if by sea" kinda thing are
you kidding me? And if they really
were that smart, why hasn't any
contemporary seemed to trump
them, what with all the technology
available now?
I can't answer that one (maybe my
dad can) but I've come to believe
that they knew full well what they
were doing, and that they did it
intentionally even while knowing all
the possible pitfalls along the way.
They trusted the citizenry to hold
things in check.
I think it's up to us to be good
stewards of those initial principles,
and so it is our duty to vote. It is
after all, supposed to be all about
"We, The People".
Regardless of the outcome of
this election (or any other for that
matter), I hope I live long enough to
be able to help my grandchild with
one of his or her civics lessons one
day. I've had a good teacher.

Clam Bayou Update Questions

By Cathy Salustri
Work continues on the
Clam Bayou restoration
project, and project manag-
er Brandt Henningson says
that the restoration should
be complete this spring.
"This is a very good con-
tractor; they're very respon-
sible and we feel they're do-
ing a very good job. They've
been very responsive to the
citizens who are living adja-
cent to the project phases,"
Henningson says of EHC,
the company contracted to
do the work.
In May, workers finished
the "string of pearls," which
is a series of open-water
lagoons connected by tidal
"These are the old spoil
piles that were adjacent to
the mosquito ditches. We've
removed all that fill mate-

rial and put back some of
the original bay bottom."
Work continues in five oth-
er sections, some of which
are roughly 70% completed,
he adds. One section, the
stormwater drainage ditch
that runs the length of the
bayou, won't see any work
until workers can redirect
stormwater away from
that ditch. The plans are to
change it into a sinusoidal
channel, which means that
it will curve the same way
an unaltered tidal channel
The large pond by the post
office should be done in the
coming month, Henning-
son says. Rainfall as well
as water from tides will fill
the pond; workers will not
need to fill the pond with
water. The southern pond
already has water in it,

Photo Descriptions
1. Picture the post office out of view at the bottom of the photo.

2. The excavation at the lower left is the northern stormwater

3. The ditch at the far left was the previous stormwater ditch;
when finished, water will drain to the northern stormwater pond
and make its way to the overflow weir.

4. The overflow weir will be to the left of the blue aluminum wall at
the upper right side of the picture.

5. Another weir, the white concrete pad just above the blue
aluminum wall in the photo, will also help retain the water so
sediments and any potential contaminants have a chance to
settle in the bottom of the lake.

6. Two skimmers will remove floatable litter at the two weirs, and
the city of St. Petersburg will remove the trash, Henningson says.
The city will also remove the sediments.

Henningson adds.
The summer rains delayed
the project slightly, as did a
foreman change, but Hen-
ningson says "they're all
caught up; they've even
added a second construc-
tion crew."
To better understand how

the Bayou will function
upon its completion, refer-
ence the most recent aeri-
als of Clam Bayou, taken
last month.

Harry Bosch and the Real Michael Connelly
by Leigh Clifton

M Famed author Michael Con-
nelly signed copies of his new-
est book, The Reversal for one
of more than 300 fans who
stood in line after his lecture
last Saturday afternoon at
the Festival of Reading to get
their books signed. His pro-
tagonist, Harry Bosch, who
appears in almost all of his
novels, is a crusty, irreverent
LA cop; an amalgamation of
the many beat cops Connelly
Michael Connelly signs his book for over 3oo fans met during his 14 years as a
at the Festival of Reading held on the USF campus police reporter.
st weekend. "He's also a piece of me," Con-
nelly told the packed crowd in-
side USF's Campus Activity Center. "I get to make him eccentric and curmud-
geonly, stubborn to the point of arrogant, some would say. Harry would reflect
what I've seen as a cop beat reporter. This would be the guy you would want if
it was YOUR relative on a slab. He's relentless."
When asked about his 'writing process' Connelly told the crowd that he often
gets his ideas in his sleep.
"Sleep is the mystical part of writing. I will wake up 3-4 times a night and jot
something down. If I have a question, the answer will often come to me when
I sleep."
Connelly said it usually takes him 10-11 months to write a book and he al-
ways writes by lamplight and blackout curtains to create an environment he
feels comfortable writing in. He can write for hours at a time or sometimes just
a few minutes.
Connelly's book The Lincoln Lawyer, has been made into a movie and is due
out in March 2011. Mathew McConaughey will play the lead. Connelly got to
watch the dailies of the film and was blown away by how good it looked. He's
really excited about it He told the crowd that adapting his books to movies is
a very tricky process and he is very picky about any adaptation that strays too
far from his original plot.
" A guy will get a screenwriter to adapt my book, but that screenwriter might
miss a very small but integral part of the dialogue or action and not add it into
the script. All of the sudden, the story I wrote is nowhere to be found, or else
it's missing a key ingredient. That drives me nuts!"
Connelly had some parting words of wisdom.
"If you want to be a writer, then keep your head down and write the best
book you can. Then go to the title page of every book you've ever liked, see who
published it and then send it out to every book agent listed with that publish-
ing house. Keep at it. I'm actually still waiting to hear about a script I sent in
1985, so you have to be patient," he laughed.

and beautify the downtown area," read a letter the city sent dated on October
15 to property owners in a portion of its downtown area.
The city has conducted an initial traffic review of the area but a more de-
tailed analysis would be needed. The city wants public input on the proposed
There will be a public meeting on Tuesday, Nov. 2 at 6 p.m. in the Commu-

- St. Michael, the Archangel, Defend Us In
Battle; Be Our Defense Against the Wicked-
ness and Snares of the Devil. May God Re-
buke Him We Humbly Pray; and Do You Oh
Prince of the Heavenly Host, By the Power
of God, Thrust Into Hell Satan and the Other
Evil Spirits Who Prowl About the World For the
Ruin of Souls. Amen. St. Michael, I Resort
to Your Protection and in My Faith, Offer This
Light Which Shall Burn Every Tuesday. Com-
fort Me in My Difficulties and While Lodging in
the House of Our Savior Intercede for Me and
My Family That We Will Be Able to Hold God
Close to Our Hearts and Be Provided for in All
of Our Necessities. I Beseech You, to Have
Infinite Pity in Regard to Favors I ask of You
(Name Them) So That I May Be Able To Over-
come All Difficulties as You Did the Dragons
at Your Feet. Our Father (Say 3 Times). Hail
Mary(Say 3 Times). Glory Be (Say 3 Times).
This Prayer is to be Said 9 Tuesdays, in Suc-
cession and Each Tuesday a Candle Shal
Be Lighted and a Copy of This Prayer Lft in
the Church to Help Another Soul in Distress
and Support the Devotion to St. Michael. This
Miraculous Saint Grants Everything, No Mat-
ter How Difficult, Before the Termination of 9
Tuesday. G.F.

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
Gloria's. R.S.
