-q .First Fruits of
the Harvest
By Cathy Salustri
Tucked in an industrial park
behind a kennel and veterinar-
ian office, First Fruits Hydro-
ponics opened for its second
season this past weekend. Al-
though located in a tough-to-
find cloister of buildings, the
hydroponic farm enjoyed a
steady throng of people Sunday
afternoon.
Local people wanting local
food picked strawberries, Swiss
chard, red mustard greens,
beans, herbs, and collards and
other greens from the rows
or plants. The 1/3-acre farm
Shelly Kellogg and her husband Jeff turned the 1/3-acre behind their doesn't have an organic
veterinary practice and kennel into a hydroponic farm. See Fresh, page 47


Proposed Traffic Changes to
Benefit Corey Ave. Business
By Melissa Lattman
ST. PETE BEACH The city shared plans for a
proposed downtown traffic study with residents
on Nov. 2 at the Community Center. City Man-
ager Mike Bonfield showed diagrams of pro-
posed improvements from three transportation
projects near the Corey Avenue area.
The city looked at downtown roads with hopes
of lessening a couple of congested areas, enhanc-
ing pedestrian access, improving parking, beau-
tifying the streetscape and helping economic
development.
Bonfield said the current traffic flow moves peo-
ple through town but does not encourage much
but driving through town. The city is consider-
ing changing the traffic pattern to get traffic
going through downtown and into businesses.
The goal is to enhance redevelopment of Corey
Avenue and not just move people through town.
They also want to look at the effect on the area
and not hurt businesses around the proposed
traffic study Bonfield said.
The proposal is to split the traffic north bound
on Blind Pass and southbound on
See Corey Traffic, page 9


Local Sea Scouts
Host State Regatta
Last weekend the wind was blowing 14 to
22 mph and there were whitecaps on Boca
Ciega Bay. The cold front had moved in
and boating was the last thing in the mind
of most local boaters. For the Sea Scouts
from all over Florida boating was the only
thing in mind because it was the weekend
of the Cats Point Regatta. Every fall the
Sea Scout group at Eckerd College teams
up with the Gulfport Sea Scouts at Boca
Ciega Yacht Club to hold this fun event.
This year the bay was covered with white
caps and white sails as teen sailors from
Miami to Jacksonville and the west coast
competed in the races and land games.
There were timed and scored 1st aid events,
navigation and boat-handling games that
would challenge many captains. The
teams were confronted with an elaborate
combination of plumbing and plastic that
tested the kids' ability to select scrap ma-
terial from a box to stop as many leaks as
possible in two minutes. This tested their
ability to keep a sinking

boat afloat. As the event wound down
to the presentation of trophies the
teams topped everything off with a
Tug-of-Dinks. The Ship from Ft. Lau-
derdale won 1st place overall; our lo-
cal Ship 915 from Boca Ciega Yacht
Club took 2nd and Boca Raton Ship
# 339 won 3rd place. In the final event
Eckerd College Ship 912 battled it
out with Gulfport to win the Tug-of-
Dinks and several other awards. Ev-
ery one went home windblown, tired,
but with a sense of self satisfaction
that they had done their best to dem-
onstrate their skill and knowledge
of how to handle the sea in all of its
moods.

Upgrade Approved
for Women's Club
ST. PETE BEACH- The commission
approved on Nov. 9 the construction of
an elevated deck at the Pass-A-Grille
Women's Club. The deck replaces an
existing ground level seating area.
Because of the property's institutional
zoning the commission's approval is
required for any additional structures
or changes to the site plan, Commu-
nity Development Director Karl Hol-
ley said.
"We will be improving existing out-
door space that is currently used for
social gatherings by adding a deck to
our house. Some of the existing pay-
ers will be removed thereby adding
green space. We will also have plant-
ers on the deck with irrigation. The
design will be in compliance with the
historical aspects of our house. We
will not be increasing our capacity,
our kitchen and bathrooms will not
support any increase in capacity," the
applicant wrote.

CORRECTION
In last week's edition of the paper,
an article suggested that Gulfport
councilman Sam Henderson
wanted to reduce noise pollution
with the Dark Skies initiative.
Councilman Henderson actually
hopes this initiative will reduce
light, not noise pollution; the error,
which the Gabber regrets, was
ours, not his. Additionally, Mr.
Henderson is pursuing a master's
of science in Environmental
Science and Policy; a few weeks
ago we indicated otherwise.

By Cathy Salustri
City of Gulfport: Smokin' J's
Q: When the city permitted the smoker restaurant on Gulfport Boulevard,
there were concerns about the smoke. Have there been any complaints
about the smoke since he opened?

A: According to the city's records, the restaurant had one complaint,
which investigators deemed "unfounded." Gulfport city manager Jim
O'Reilly told the Gabber the city had logged no cases logged for Smokin'
J's since it opened, because investigators will only start an investigation if
they find a violation, which they did not.
Fred Metcalf, director of the city's Community Development department,
said he did not have any details on the complaint.

Corey Traffic,
from front page
Gulf Boulevard between 73rd and
75th Avenues. The traffic change
would be concentrated in a two-block
circle and would go back to more of a
downtown feel. Corey Avenue would
remain a two-way street. The whole
concept is "to get more out of the traf-
fic that is already there," Bonfield
said.
Public Services Director Steve Hal-
lock said the proposed traffic study of
the whole downtown area would give
a picture of traffic flow today. Then
they would use the model to see the
effect of proposed changes. "None of
us wants to make it worse," Hallock
said.
A resident said she thought it was
a wonderful idea to do the study dur-
ing the winter and get the increased
traffic from snowbirds included in the
study. Hallock said the study would
also project out growth for 20 years
as well.
The city is waiting to get the cost
of the study. Next steps could include
getting city commission approval on
Nov. 23, continuing to work with the
state and about a month of design
work.
The proposed downtown traffic study
coincides with a couple of other traf-
fic projects in the area. The city has
received federal funding for planning
and engineering for improvements to
the city's portion of Blind Pass Road,
which goes from Gulf Boulevard (by
the McDonald's) to 75th Avenue. The
city does not yet have the funding to
do the construction of the Blind Pass

project. The Blind Pass study in-
cludes sidewalks, landscaping, and
bike lanes. The goal is to try to make
it a more attractive neighborhood
connector, Bonfield said.
Another nearby traffic project by the
state includes landscape islands on
Gulf Boulevard between Blind Pass
and 73rd Avenue.

Project Close Outs
ST. PETE BEACH- The Public
Works Department gave updates on
the completion of a pair of capital
improvement projects at the Nov. 9
city commission meeting. The city
street sign inventory survey, which
cost $14,400, found 1,236 regulatory,
warning, and/or guide signs need to
be replaced. The survey found 958

street signs need to be replaced, only
11 street signs in the city met federal
requirements.
The Corey Avenue tree replacement
project cost $10,235. The public prop-
erties' crews ground old stumps, in-
stalled drip irrigation, prepared the
surface for the planters, added shell
and installed soil and trees. The new
trees are Christmas palms.

Lightning Protection
ST. PETE BEACH- The city commis-
sion approved on Nov. 9 the purchase
of lightning and surge protection for
the electronic components of the re-
claimed water booster station. The
estimated cost of $18,000 comes from
the reclaimed water fund.

Premier Chioce: Flood Insurance That Pays You!


State Farm Customers
Prepare For October!
J 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?


JfII LU"l'llmil, ~ru-uwiner uo DuirMy-
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.

that build into something through
the years. This week, you'll inch
along on your way to improvement.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21).
You love your people, but you also
have to admit that they have steered
you wrong before -- all that talking
they do about what you'd be good at,
what you should be doing and what's
out of your league. If you're going to
get this show on the road, you'll have
to ignore some of the noise from the
peanut gallery.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You
are a note in the song of the universe.
Be aware of your ability to pleasantly
harmonize with the chord that's going
on around you, or to create tension,
interest and conflict with the way you
play along. Both ways are good -- it's
just a choice. It all depends on what
kind of music you want to make.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). What
is the point of traveling if you're not
going to embrace what's unfamiliar
about the new place? When you
venture out, you'll steer clear of the
chain restaurants you're familiar
with and the activities you can do just
as well at home. Your adventuresome
attitude will rub off on those around
you.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Are you
lacking motivation? Maybe it's not
your fault. Maybe your goal just isn't
compelling. If nothing tantalizes you
to take action, go back to the drawing
board. Brainstorm about what you
really want from this life. Choose a
destination that excites you enough
to motivate you along the path.
ARIES (March 21-April 19).
Modifications will be necessary. Be
careful not to interpret this as a


failure on your part. There is nothing
wrong with adapting your plans,
even adapting them constantly. The
important thing is that you keep
going. As long as you are making a
new plan and getting up and going
at it again, you are winning.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20).
Humans need other humans to
survive. That's why one of our most
primitive fears is the fear of being
separated from our caretakers,
whether it's family, loved ones or
society at large. You'll dance with
that fear this week. By Friday, you
have new rules about when to be
independent and when to reach
out. GEMINI (Ml.Iy 21-June
21). The mark of a true leader is
someone who can lead himself. Your
standards are high, and you don't
need anyone else to monitor you and
make sure you stay on track. You'll
remain vigilant when all others have
backed off. You'll even test yourself
and question how you spend your
time.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Your
attitude is stellar, and you make
money with your winning ways. You
know what you have to offer, and
you do so very well. You'll soon be
developing and selling a different
product, so work the current package
with gusto. Then you'll be able to
look back knowing that you did your
very best.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Fortune
favors you, though not in a "dumb
luck" kind of way. You'll have to
work hard to create opportunities.
But your rewards will be sweeter
for the effort. This week, focus on
overcoming your weaknesses -- not
all of them at once, though. Create
one positive habit at a time, and
you will be transformed.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Decide
what will make your heart race, and
do it. Is it bungee jumping, or calling


SE IOL6ERY


the Gabr. vr husa ic 98


that intimidating potential date or
client? This is not an act you'll do
purely for the momentary adrenaline
rush. Rather, it's a symbolic leap of
faith that reminds you of your own
vitality and connects you to the
essence of who you are.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Life comes
with cliffs and chasms -- there's no
getting around it. Sooner or later
you'll need to scale the mountain or
jump off the cliff. Even if you lived in
a place as flat as Kansas, you would
still have tornados to worry about.
Since there are no safe guarantees,
your willingness to take a risk will
come in handy.
This Week's Birthdays: This
year, you'll publicize your work and
attract fans in growing numbers.
Your presence will be felt by powerful
people who weren't aware of you
before, and by the end of December,
you have new ways of making money.
Your physical strength will grow in
the early part of 2011 as you do what
it takes to become healthy. February
brings a love connection that inspires
a change -- perhaps you'll move or
alter your habits. In June, you'll get
a lot of help and build something
ambitious.

Excerpts heard at the November 9, 2010

St. Pete Beach City Commission Meeting

Public Comment

& Council Quotes

Issues pertaining to 8th Avenue
"If we are going to take the time to do something, we should do it
correctly." -Commissioner Bev Garnett- on a proposed ordinance estab-
lishing development standards for the 8th Avenue Community Redevelop-
ment Area, which also includes 9th Avenue. 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.
"I think it should go back to the planning board," -Vice Mayor Jim
Parent on the proposed 8th Avenue ordinance, which was tabled on Oct.
26 after residents raised concerns on setbacks to Commissioner Garnett.
The boards did have workshops, the setbacks came up but the planner had
gone back to her office to get more information and was not in the room,
Garnett said. She said the joint board meetings were not on tape so she
could not review them.
"Let's make sure all these people who came to you are at the meet-
ings," Commissioner Marvin Shavlan to Commissioner Garnett on the
proposed 8th Avenue ordinance. City Manager Mike Bonfield said the is-
sues as he understood are the front set backs and the perception that 9th
Avenue can't do what 8th Avenue can.
"If we skip over them in this process then why have the boards...I
think those boards need to work together for the city." Vice Mayor
Jim Parent, the commission decided to send the 8th Avenue ordinance
back to the boards. City Manager Bonfield said the city would not make as-
sumptions from comments made at the board meetings but instead write
everything up and get board approval before sending an ordinance on to
the city commission. The process will take a month longer but the staff will
write it up and have the boards vote, Bonfield said.
On other matters
"The Police Department staff is going to meet with the red light
people." -City Manager Mike Bonfield, explaining the police will meet
with a company on possible red light cameras and locations on a tour of
the city.
"The real big news is the chick-fil -A cow needs a boat to ride in."
-Vice Mayor Jim Parent, on the Dec. 10 holiday boat parade.
There's no entry fee for boaters. Call (727) 363-9245 for more information
on the parade. Call (404) 452-7164, if you want to give the cow a ride, Par-
ent said.
"You don't need an appointment, you just show up and bleed."
-A reminder about the Blood Drive on Fri'di.L Nov. 12 at City Hall, 155
Corey Avenue from 9-Noon. No reservation necessary, just come by and
give the gift of life!
"It would help us to make more consistent decisions if we had more
information." -Commissioner Garnett on city staff information and rec-
ommendations on quasi-judicial cases. The commission discussed and
decided to have the city provide more information for the commission's
analysis but stopped short of requesting city staff recommendations.

A Veterans Story
A Letter From Iowa: Mike Finnerty
By Cathy Salustri


Mike Finnerty doesn't
like to talk about Viet-
nam. In 1968 he received
his draft notice, and in
1969 the Army sent him
to Vietnam. He fought
for a year, then received
an honorable discharge.
Although his father was
career military- the sec-
ond person to achieve
the rank of Sergeant Ma-
jor- Mike simply says "it
was not for me."
"I think a lot of Viet-
nam vets are extremely
hesitant about talking
about that experience,"


he says, closing his eyes
before he continues. "To be there and
see the independent courage that
was needed to preserve your life and
others' lives is something I'll never
forget. It's a shame it hasn't been
recognized for what the truth is. It's
some memories that I don't want to
go back and go through," he says.
Although the St. Pete Beach mayor
prefers not to discuss his time in Viet-
nam, his tour of duty there inspired
the retired lumber trader to start the
St. Pete Beach Support Our Troops
program four years ago.
As a newly elected commissioner
he met Indian Shores councilwoman
Marlene Clausen, who asked for help
sending care packages overseas. Re-
membering his time overseas, he of-
fered to help. Soon volunteers from
across the city were donating.
At a time when, the mayor says,
"there was such a political climate
here that nobody trusted anybody,"
the program continued to grow as
people on both sides of contentious
issues on the beach came together to
support the troops.
"People from both sides were tak-
ing part in it from across the city," he
says. In a city torn by lawsuits and
arguments over development and
redevelopment, he watched people
work together to send care packages
to soldiers.
A few months later the city started
receiving pictures and letters from
enlisted men and women overseas,
thanking them for the care packages.


Mike and his wife Terri helped spearhead the Support our
Troops monthly package program. They spend over $1200
per month in postage sending boxes to the service men and
women


The city told Mike and Terri Finner-
ty they could use vacant office space
as a staging area to pack the boxes
to send overseas. Mike still works
with the program but his wife, Terri,
spends about 50 hours a week on the
program. Last month congressman
Bill Young donated $2500 worth of
postage to St. Pete Beach Support
Our Troops, now, through Terri's ef-
forts, a nonprofit organization.
Since 9/11, Terri says, no one can
send a package to "any soldier;"
only personally addressed packages
reach soldiers. Because of that, Mike
and Terri get the names of soldiers
from the St. John's prayer list and
members of the community. Every
month, Mike, Terri and other vol-
unteers send two boxes to 51 people
in Iraq and Afghanistan with ties to
the St. Pete Beach community. They
also send dog treats and durable toys
to the canine training units in Ku-
wait.
When asked what motivated him
to get so deeply involved in sending
packages to soldiers, the mayor who
doesn't like to talk about his time in
Vietnam will tell one story about the
war:
"We had just come out of a fire fight
and we had just gone back to base
camp, and everybody's anxious for
some sort of letter, some sort of com-
munication from what we used to
call'back in the world'."
That day, the 21-year-old army sol-
dier received a card from little boy
he had never met. That little boy
attended kindergarten in Iowa, and


he and his father had selected Mike's
name.
"They sent me a card telling me,
'Stay safe and come home.' They said
they were going to pray for me.
"It just made me feel over-
whelmed."
St. Pete Beach Support Our Troops
needs donations. They spend over
$1200 a month in postage and send
hygiene items, pre-packaged food,
dog biscuits, dog toys, books, maga-
zines and DVDs to men and women
fighting overseas. To donate, bring
items to St. Pete Beach city hall or
call 367-2735.

So lethian oh my midr
a By Bill Northrop B_Northrop@theGabber.com


Three Taxable Sins
I was kind of disappointed about
the election Tuesday when
California voters failed to legalize
marijuana. It was a chance to do a
large scale experiment about the use
of a substance over 60 per cent of the
public says they want decriminalized.
Apparently, the polls have been
wrong, or the question asked was
wrong. The California public didn't
want it.
Of course, Californians already
have medical marijuana which has
become a new industry extending
from growers to doctors to retailers
to distributors all of whom get taxed.
Taxing is what part of the debate
is about. Like gambling. Take the
moral or societal effects out of either
and one deals just with the money.
And, all of us want a piece of the pie.
Side effects do cut into the pie so


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


they can't be ignored. Also, there's
the issue of other drugs, prescribed,
manufactured, or specially designed.
Why not grab hold of them, too?
The war on drugs has been costly,
but not very effective so maybe we
should do something else. Thus, let
the Californians deal with the issue.
They don't have much to lose since
they're dead broke anyway and seem
to like new things.
With conservative thought appearing
to sweep across all but California, it
isn't likely the issue will pop up any
place else. However, a good healthy
discussion about drugs wouldn't be a
bad thing. Besides, there are a large
number of libertarians within this
conservative movement and they
(as I do) favor as much individual
freedom as possible. Most are willing
to address the consequences of
individual actions, too.

In the meantime, conservatives,
progressives, and, to an extent,
libertarians, and certainly socialist/
progressives are looking for "this
won't hurt taxes". Which brings me
to legalizing prostitution. If gambling
and drugs are on the table, why not
prostitution?
First of all, a woman has a right to
do with her body what she wants.
Seventy-five per cent of the public
feels that way about abortions.
Certainly abortion is more violent,
invasive, and destructive to another
human being than getting a little
money for doing "what comes
naturally" (an early 1950s song).
Taxing the act, or the business,
whichever form it takes also brings
some control as in "medical review".
Disease control usually follows
legalized prostitution and that
helps clean up the act, so to speak.
At least it decreases societal effect.
It also helps relieve unemployment.
Well, maybe not. Can't go so far as to
promote it.
So, there you have it. Three activities
that are going to go on no matter
what the laws and the mores of a
community. Taxing and controlling
them might be the best government
option. It gets government off
the hook, but still hooking for
money, leaving the real society an
opportunity to discuss, cajole, and
convince individuals in society how
to act or not act.
It's not a conservative agenda,
except for the individuality aspect.
Progressives are more interested in
power and control so it might not be so
popular in those quarters. Too much
individual freedom. Libertarians
might go for it, but would fight
government involvement. European
centered progressive/socialists just
might go for it, though. After all,
these things need a champion.
Who knows? Such an agenda would
be much more interesting than trying
wading through, discussing and
understanding thousands of pages of
legislation that not even our leaders
have read or understand. And, it
would certainly be a distraction
for the economic woes flopping all
around us.

Refugee Program
Seeks Volunteers
The Refugee Youth and Family
Program at Gulf Coast Jewish
Family Services helps refugee
children ages 5-18 to succeed in
school and improve acculturation
and preservation of the refugee
family. They have served families
from over 32 countries who have
been resettled to Pinellas and
Hillsborough.
They are seeking volunteers
to serve as tutors, mentors and
community guides. Volunteers may
simply read a book, help a child
with their homework or practice
conversational English. Volunteers
who welcome a language barrier
may assist with teaching English
for our more recent arrivals.
This is a wonderful opportunity
to learn about a new culture while
helping a child succeed in a new
life. Tutoring and mentoring may
be conducted in-home or in a public
setting such as a library.
No experience is necessary. There is
no cost. English is the only language
requirement.

You & THE


LAW"
By Robert J. Myers, Esq.
The Real Estate Buyer's
Legal Checklist
One of the single largest investments
of your lifetime may be when you
purchase a home or some other
type of real estate. In many cases,
your entire life savings could be
invested and potentially at risk. As a
result, it is very important that any
prospective purchaser of real estate
proceed with a certain amount of
caution.
PURCHASE AND SALE
AGREEMENT
The first document that a potential
buyer of real estate will encounter is
the Real Estate Purchase And Sale
Agreement. This document is one of
the most important papers you will
sign in a real estate transaction. The
details contained in this agreement
determine what real property you
will buy and how you will buy it.
What is in this agreement also
establishes what your rights and
responsibilities are in the upcoming
real estate transaction.


The following is a brief checklist of
items which should be considered by
a buyer of real estate:
1. What exactly are you purchasing?
Are land, buildings and personal
property included as part of the
sale?
2. When will you be entitled to take
possession of the property? Will the
current owners need time after the
closing to move out of the property?
Can you live with this?
3. What kind of deed should the
seller of the real estate give you?
Should it be an agreement for deed,
a quitclaim deed or a warranty
deed?
4. Will the seller provide you with
good, marketable title?
5. Who is responsible for the
payment of real estate and other
taxes? Will they be prorated?
6. What persons should be required
to sign and accept the real estate
contract and closing documents?
Is it necessary for both a husband
and wife to sign the documents?
Who should sign the documents if a
corporation is involved in the deal?
7. What are the zoning or other
restrictions on the use of the real
property?
8. Are water, mineral or timber
rights involved in the sale of the real
estate? Have they been properly
covered in the agreement?

9. In what time frame does the
purchase offer need to be accepted
or refused? Are there certain
contingencies in the real estate
contract which require satisfaction
prior to the contract becoming
effective and legally enforceable?
10. Who pays for the costs of title
insurance, property inspection,
intangible tax on the mortgage,
documentary stamps and the broker
fee?
These are but a few of the questions
which should be answered before you
sign a real estate agreement. Only
then will you know if the real estate
purchase you are contemplating will
truly meet your needs.

Veterans' Day
My grandfather fought in the
second World War. He was
a crew chief for the Army air
force in the Pacific theatre; he flew
the Burma hump. I saw him almost
every day of my life, but I don't think
I ever thanked him for going to war.
Today is Veterans Day. It's not a big
holiday, as far as Hallmark holidays
go. But of all the holidays we have in
a given year, it's probably the most
important one to us as a country. Oh,
Independence Day is a great day, yes,
but that celebrates one day. Veterans
Day honors all the men and women
who have protected the United States
every day since that day.
We have a way of cheapening holi-
days until their true meaning is so
distilled that we don't even under-
stand it anymore; if you don't believe


me, take a look at the spectacular
Christmas displays you see starting
to pop up around town. Now look
around and tell me how many have
a baby Jesus anywhere in the scene.
So, today, take a minute to think
about what we're honoring.
The things I am about to say next
are, perhaps, unoriginal. That doesn't
make them untrue or unworthy of
saying. To the contrary, I would ar-
gue that these words are worthy of
repeating, if for no other reason to
remind us.
Men and women who fight in wars
see things the rest of us will only see
on newsreels or in movies. They are
called upon to do things most of us
could never imagine so that the rest
of us never have to imagine them.
They leave their mothers, fathers,
their wives, their husbands, and their

children knowing they may never see
them again. They do this so we can
enjoy our families.
Today, there is no draft in the Unit-
ed States. The men and women fight-
ing overseas are there somewhat
willingly, but that doesn't make it
easy. Many of them probably never
expected to see battle. I wonder how
many of them thought about what
it means to be a veteran before they
shipped out.
I do not now and never have sup-
ported what our country is doing
overseas, but that doesn't matter
and it isn't the same thing as not
supporting our troops. It is not a
soldier's job to think about whether
or not they should be fighting; it is
their job to fight. Say what you will
about our "war on terror" but leave
our enlisted men and women out of
it. They didn't make the decision to
invade. They signed on to protect our
country, plain and simple.
After my grandfather died, I met a
group of ex-prisoners of war who met
monthly, led by St. Pete Beach resi-
dent Homer Still. Each man in the
group told stories of being captured
at war and later liberated. Listen-
ing to them speak I first understood
what it cost for people to guarantee
my freedom. It was the first time I
truly appreciated my grandfather's
sacrifice.
Today, seek out one of the men or
women who served our country. It
probably isn't enough to say thank
you, but, really, what else can you
say? If you have time, ask them to
tell you about their time in the ser-
vice. We will never understand what
they've been through, but we can ap-
preciate it.
To those of you who served, there's
very little I can say, except to offer
my gratitude for your willingness
to do things I cannot understand to
guarantee a way of life for people
whom you do not know.
Thank you.

Contact Cathy Salustri at
CathySalustri@theGabber.com.
If you'd like to thank a veteran, go
to the Notes section of the Gabber's
Facebook page and add the names
of the men and women you'd like to
thank for their willingness to serve
so we could live in a free country.

Pasadena-Bear Creek Neighborhood
Association Clean-up


^*r- rElk llBm ....
Eleven year old Gwen Stewart pulls on wader boots last Saturday morning for the Pasadena-
Bear Creek Neighborhood Association cleanup. She and over 40 others met at Grace Bible
Church to help clean up the Pinellas Trail and Bear Creek.


By Leigh Clifton
Wearing wader boots and carrying
shovels and buckets, over 40
members of the Pasadena-Bear
Creek Neighborhood Association
wandered along the Pinellas Trail
and Bear Creek last Saturday
morning, picking up trash, tree limbs
and recyclables. The volunteers wore
jackets, turtlenecks and sweaters,
bundled up against the cold wind
that descended from the north at
the end of last week. This cleanup
is the first of two the Association
will participate in, according to
Association Co-President Tonilynn
Sharpe.
"We applied for and got a grant
from Tampa Bay Estuaries to help
us purchase clean-up supplies like
the wader boots, shovels and gloves.
We qualified for the estuary money
because of the creek. The grant money
also allowed us to hire an arborist/
tree trimming company to help clear
some of the major over brush that
hangs along the trail. With budget
cuts, the county just doesn't have the
money to get it all," Sharpe said.
Walgreens donated water for the
volunteers at the clean-up and
Paulo's Pizza donated pizza to feed
the hungry workers, who trudged
through the heavy brush and cold
water of the creek to pick up debris.
48


Dunkin' Donuts also donated coffee,
which was much appreciated as the
morning started out unseasonably
cold and windy.
"We try to partner with our local
businesses," Sharpe explained. "They
have been so gracious. And Grace
Bible Church has let us use their
grounds as a meeting place and as
an area for the city dumpster to sit
while we bring the trash back from
the trail."
Association member Cinnamon
McGeehan brought her two
daughters Robin, four and Lily, six,
to the cleanup.
"This is a good lesson for the girls;
it teaches them not to throw trash
on the ground and the consequences
of those actions. We helped pass out
flyers in the neighborhood. It's been
almost two years since we last helped
clean up here. It feels really good to
be involved," she said. She also baked
two pans of brownies for the event.
Eleven year old Gwen Stewart was
part of the cleanup and pulled on
some wader boots so she could go into
the creek.
"Last year we found bikes, shopping
carts and a lot of large trash," she
said. "I do this with my Grandmother
because she has always taught me
that it's good to help the community.
So that's why I'm here."


According to Sharpe, the volunteers
picked up over 200 pounds of
recyclables and over a ton of tree
trimmings. The City of St. Petersburg
had dropped off a roller trash bin
and picked it up last Monday, after
the cleanup had finished. All of the
non-recyclables were placed into
the bin; the rest will go to the City's
recycling business partner, Waste
Management.
"We feel like we really ARE making
a difference here," Sharpe said. "We
noticed a whole lot less of the large
trash than we've usually pulled out in
the past."
The next cleanup will be in the
spring and the Association will be
applying for another grant, probably
from SWFTMUD, at that time.

Although Upham Beach is greatly improved, the dredging fell short by 18,000 yards of
sand.
ST. PETE BEACH- For three weeks in October crews worked dredging Blind
Pass and filling nearby Upham Beach with 160,000 cubic yards of sand. The
quantity of sand fill was short about 18,000 cubic yards. Andy Squires who
coordinated the project for the county told the city's Beach Stewardship Com-
mittee on Nov. 4 that they had been hoping for 178,000 cubic yards but they
could not get quite enough sand.
Less sand was available because of a couple of factors, Squires said. They
found a water line obstructing access to the sand. The dredging process had
80 percent efficiency so about 20 percent of the sand went back into the Gulf
of Mexico, he said.
"I think we will be okay as the beach settles," Squires said.
To slow down beach erosion the county plans starting around Thanksgiving
to repair the T-groins at Upham Beach working through around March 19,
Squires said. Right now they are constructing new geotubes, which takes a
few weeks. The Geotextile groins or geotubes were installed in 2005 and filled
last in 2006. They will dig out the old tubes, excavate, place the new tubes and
fill them with sand, he said.
City Public Works Director Steve Hallock said the T-groins project will be
done weekdays between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. They are going to monitor and mea-
sure the noise from the project and will dampen the sound as needed. The new
tubes will be beige instead of yellow. The north beach access by the condomini-
ums will be closed and there will be a walk around detour, he said.
Squires said the current geotextile material is not permanent and the county
is looking into using a similar T-shaped rock structure at the next beach nour-
ishment slated for 2013. The ideal time for nourishment is every three years
but sometimes with permitting requirements it takes longer, he said.

Bogie Theatre and Leading Ladies:

The cast and crew of Leading Ladies, Bogie theatre's comical farce being put on next week,
November 17-20 at 7:00 p.m. in the main auditorium.
The Bogie theatre students have picked a hilarious farce to stage this month
with Leading Ladies, a comical take of two down-on- their- luck Shakespear-
ean actors in a small town in Pennsylvania, who hear via the newspaper that a
wealthy matron is terribly ill and possibly dying. She is looking for her sisters'
two children, so she can include them in her million-dollar inheritance. The
actors, Leo Clark, played by student Corey Kramer, and Jack Gable, played
by Dylan Skinner, decide to pose as the long lost "Max" and "Steve", the dy-
ing woman's sister's children. Unfortunately, "Max" and "Steve" are actually
Maxine and Stephanie, so the two actors must dress as women to try and pry
the inheritance out of the dying matron Florence, played by student Sheila
Pryde.
. Things get even more complicated when Leo falls for Florence's actual niece
Meg, played by Amelia Bartlett,(cast A) and Rachael Goetsch (cast B) while
Jack swoons over Florence's part-time aide Audrey, played by Janelle Kramer.
This show has all the necessary ingredients for a madcap farcical romp that
will keep you laughing all night long (recommended for audiences aged 13
years and older). The BCHS Pirate Players will be presenting the hilarious
full-length comedy Leading Ladies November 17-20 at 7:00pm in the main
auditorium. Tickets are $5 and will be sold at the door.

Senior Center Inaugural
Centennial 5K Fun-Run a Bit Chilly
By Leigh Clifton

The Gulfport Senior
Center's Inaugural Cen-
tennial 5K Fun Run
brought out the die-hard
supporters and runners
last Saturday morning
as they braved an excep-
tionally chilly morning
to run and walk in sup-
port of the Senior Center
Foundation. Although 55
had originally signed up,
Foundation Director Sar-
ah Peel said that about
40 actually showed up for
the event.
"I think the colder tem-
peratures kept a few
people home this morn-
ing," she smiled. Peel was
herself bundled up in a
winter coat and stood by
the finish line, cheering
on the runners and walk- Marcia Jones (left) and Frances Vitale stand triumphant
ers as they came up to the after finishing Senior Center's Inaugural Centennial 5 K
Senior Center parking lot. Run. Both are Senior center members
Standing in the middle of
Beach Blvd, Peele held up her hand and stopped the good-natured drivers so
the runners could cross the street.
Mayor Mike Yakes and Vice-Mayor Michelle King were among the officials
in Saturday's race.
49 -year-old race runner Mickey Hook, of St. Pete, won the 5K run; he is a
competitive runner and after finishing, promptly put on his jacket and ran the
race again, backwards, as a cool down. The first woman finisher was Janet
Folsom, 56, who ran the entire race as well.
66-year-Lynn Anzalone was the first walker to finish. 75-year -old Shirley
Calamari finished as her husband Mike, a competitive runner and race pro-
moter, ran out to greet her and run walk the last 25 yards to the finish line.
Each racer received a t-shirt, designed by Senior Center volunteer Joan
Barry and recyclable goodie bag. All were treated to coffee, bagels and fruit,
while the winners received medals. Although Mother Nature wasn't terribly
cooperative, the Senior Center Fun Run was just that; a fun time and for a
good cause.

Brownie Troop 997
Open for New Members
Are you a young girl between the
ages of 7 and 9 (2nd and 3rd graders),
interested in discovering the fun,
friendship and power of girls working
together? Then Gulfport Girl Scouts
Brownie Troop 997 is looking for you!
Their Brownie Troop meets every
Monday evening at 6:15 p.m. at the
Gulfport Recreation Center, 2nd
floor. Meetings last about an hour.
The Girl Scouts' mission is to build
a sense of courage, confidence, and


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


character in girls, and teach them to
help make the world a better place.
Their goals are to help girls develop
their full individual potential;
to learn to relate to others with
understanding, skill, and respect; to
develop values to guide their actions
and provide the foundation for sound
decision-making; and to contribute to
the improvement of society through
their abilities, leadership skills, and
cooperation with others.
As a Brownie, girls have the
opportunity to wear the Girl Scout
Brownie Pin showing they belong


more at ease and under-
stand that I have been
there and done that MY-
SELF."
"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
Georgia.
"I like what I do be-
cause I feel like I can
help people get a fresh
start," said Sanders.
"Since the initial con-
sultation is free, you re-
ally don't have anything
to lose to meet with me
and we can assess your
situation and see how it
might be best for you to
proceed. Bankruptcy
can be one solution to
getting back on your
feet financially, but it
may not be the best or
only solution for you.
Sanders has held a
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-
gia.
The firm also handles
Short Sale negotia-
tions, defense against
foreclosures, wills &
trusts, civil litigation
and loan modifica-
tion.
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.
