Church of the Nazarene Offers Shelter from the Cold
By Leigh Clifton


In conjunction
with Pinellas County
Coalition for the
Homeless, Gulfport's
Trinity Church of the
Nazarene has been
designated a Cold Night
Shelter; a place where
the homeless and people
without heat in their
homes can stay the night
in a warm, dry place.
The church, located at
1000 55th St. South in
Gulfport is able to accept
up to twenty people who
must sign it at the door.
They cannot carry any
weapons and they

Homeless to Trinity Church of the Nazarene for their Cold Weather Shelter.


Judge Finds Comprehensive
Plan Invalid
ST. PETE BEACH- City commission met
Tuesday night and discussed next steps after
a recent court decision, which found the ballot
summaries to inform the voters on the city's
comprehensive plan were invalid and did not
meet the requirements of state law. The city
commission and several attorneys met in an
approximately 90 minute closed session to
discuss legal strategy followed by an almost
30-minute public workshop.
The day before Thanksgiving a judge
essentially found the city's comprehensive plan
from 2008 invalid. St. Pete Beach has been
defending in court the voter approved plan,
which covers development and redevelopment
regulations in the city. Pasco-Pinellas Circuit
Court Judge David Demers found hotel height
and density increases were not clearly explained
to voters in the ballot summaries.
Mayor Mike Finnerty said there would
be no public comment during the workshop
session because of the way the meeting was
noticed, which drew some surprised and
apparently frustrated sounds from the fairly
full commission chambers.

St. Pete Beach Fire Chief
Set to Retire
By Melissa Lattman
Fire Chief Tom
Malone,61, retires at
the end of February
2011. Malone's fa-
ther was a firefight-
er in Urbana, Ohio
where Malone started
his career in March
1970. His brothers
also served the public as a firefighter and a
police officer. The family ties plus wanting to
serve the public and football injuries keep-
ing him from enlisting in the military made
the fire department perfect for him, he said.
"That togetherness I liked (of working with
other firefighters) plus I liked to do things
for other people," Malone said.
Malone joined the city's Fire Department
in 1978 as a firefighter and paramedic after
having served four years in Ohio and four
years in South Pasadena where he trained
to be a paramedic. Malone worked his way
up through the ranks in St. Pete Beach

Extra Legal Approved
ST. PETE BEACH- The city
commission approved on Nov. 23
additional monies from the city's
reserves to cover extra legal costs
paid in the last fiscal year, which
ended Oct. 31, 2010. The additional
$235,000 for legal expenses is out
of total legal expenses of $549,000.
Much of the legal bills are from
ongoing legal challenges related to
the city's comprehensive plan. The
city is closing out the budget; once the
budget is finalized some money could
go back into reserves, city officials
said.

GULFPORT'S


RECYCLED MULCH BIN

HAS BEEN RELOCATED
**FREE LOADING DAY**

DECEMBER 4th
8:00 A.M. TO NOON


THE PUBLIC WORKS DEPARTMENT WILL ASSIST RESIDENTS IN
LOADING MULCH AT THE NEW MULCH SITE AT
THE NEIGHBORHOOD CENTER 1617 49TH ST. S.

What is recycled mulch? In Pinellas County clean loads of yard trimmings (such
as tree branches and leaves) are processed by Pinellas County into mulch that is
offered free to residents, saving valuable landfill space.
How much mulch can I take at a time?There is no limit while supplies last.
Is recycled mulch clean?Yes. Weed seeds, pest insects, and plant diseases are
eliminated using a natural heating and decomposition process prescribed by the
University of Florida.

Chief Retires,
from front page
including company officer, lieuten-
ant and assistant chief/operations
commander. He became chief in
January after Fred Goliner retired.
"I've enjoyed the opportunity I have
had to be part of this and watch the
department grow," Malone said.
The St. Pete Beach Fire Depart-
ment has grown from around 15
when Malone joined to 30 now. The
products people burn, the hazards
firefighters deal with have changed
and become more complicated. The
activities, training, and technology
have advanced and changed as well,
Malone said.
Malone said he worked with Go-
liner on a hurricane plan for the city
including evacuation plans for those
with special needs. He developed
the city's re-entry program for after
natural disasters. He saw many oth-
er jurisdictions in his work assess-
ing and testing officer candidates for
promotions.
"Working on emergency manage-
ment is very rewarding because
you can accomplish things," Malone
said.
Malone who lives in Kenneth City
plans to travel and play golf when
he retires. He and his wife Sandy
have four adult children and seven
grandchildren. Malone sees retire-
ment as his next career. He thinks
it will be an adjustment from 16-18
hour workdays.
The city is currently advertising to
fill Malone's post.

Question for your
City government?
Email your request to News@theGabber.com
By Cathy Salustri
City of Gulfport: Recycling Plastic
Q: What kinds of plastic does the city recycle? Can you recycle yogurt
containers and the like? The flyer the city sent out said the bottle's neck
must be smaller than the bottle's body, which will rule out a lot of things,
but the new program was supposed to include more types of plastic.

A: Public works director Don Sopak admits the first flyer the city
distributed may have misled some people. The city currently collects any
plastic with numbers one through seven stamped on the bottom.
"We use the 'check for a neck' because that is what they use county-
wide in the Pinellas County recycling handout. All plastic containers like
mayonnaise, jelly or soft butter containers can be used including lids, caps
and pump sprays as long as they are stamped properly," the public works
director said. He added that the city will revise the flyer to reflect this.

Madeleina Seating
ST. PETE BEACH- The city
commission approved an outdoor
seating area for Madeleina Cottage
customers on the public sidewalk on
Corey Avenue. The outdoor area was
approved administratively in March
2008. The commission approval
process came at City Attorney
Mike Davis' suggestion after the
commission approved an outdoor
seating request for another Corey
Avenue establishment in October. The
city commission discussed additional
state approvals may be required.

Seconds on Sign
Reading
ST. PETE BEACH- An updated sign
ordinance passed on second reading
on Nov. 23. Based on the discussion
from the ordinance's first reading
on Nov. 9 there are changes on the
regulations to temporary seasonal
signage, second floor signage, and
internal sign illuminations. The
discussed changes allow for address
signs for each of a properties'
frontages such as a corner lot on
more than one road. Plus the changes
permit an additional real estate sign
for the waterfront area of waterfront
property.
The updated sign ordinance allows
increasing the area of windows

allows banners to be displayed in
association with approved special
events. The changes allow for broader
use of sandwich board signs and
create regulations for designer signs.

Comprehensive Plan,
from front page
City Attorney Mike Davis said there
would be opportunity for public
comment including at a pair of
upcoming meetings.
The city commission voted to follow
its attorney's advice on next steps.
The city plans to get clarification on
the judge's ruling; Davis said some
of the language was confusing and
not clear. The city plans to ask for
a rehearing. They will also ask the
judge to wait on finalizing his ruling
until a related comprehensive plan


case is decided most likely by the
end of this year or early next year.
The city had ten days following the
judge's Nov. 24 decision to take these
actions, officials said.
"(State statute) requires that a
ballot summary advise the voters
clearly what an amendment does
and the legal effect of the provision."
Judge Demers wrote. "The foregoing
standards require that an election be
invalidated if the summary does not
accurately describe the chief purpose
of the proposal or misleads voter as
to the legal effect of the proposal."
On the phone before Tuesday


night's meeting Ken Weiss who is the
attorney for the plaintiff Dr. William
Pyle said, "This is what we have said
for the last three years that the city
misled the voters."
The judge reviewed four ordinances
voters approved in 2008 to determine
if the related ballot language met
state standards. The judge found
the language did not tell voters that
approving regulations would increase
maximum allowable building heights
and shift density from residences to
beachfront tourist lodgings.
The judge's ruling reserved the
possibility that the city must
reimburse Pyle for his costs and
attorney's fees. Weiss said they were
in the process of calculating that
figure, which Weiss estimated to be
in the tens of thousands of dollars.

March Referendum Questions Discussed
The St. Pete Beach City commission decided on Nov. 30 to discuss a few possible
referendum questions at a pair of meetings in December. The referendum
questions have to be finalized by early January to appear on the March ballot.
On Dec.13 the commission will look at possible changes to city's hometown
democracy measures and initiative provisions in the charter. City Attorney
Mike Davis said as a way to get out of the revolving door of court cases the
commission could consider placing before voters a measure that would repeal
a section in the city's charter that requires voter approval of comprehensive
plan changes as well as changes in density or intensity of use and the heights
of structures.
On Dec. 14 as a part of its regular meeting the commission will consider
possible referendum questions about the reporting structure of the city clerk
and possible height changes in the Pass-A-Grille traditional hotel district.
Currently the commission hires, fires, and disciplines the clerk and the city
manager supervises the clerk. City Manager Mike Bonfield said this would be
a good time to look at any possible changes to the reporting structure with the
upcoming hiring of a new city clerk. City Clerk Terri McMaster's resignation
will be effective as of early January; she is currently using up her leave time.

Walk Wise
ST. PETE BEACH- The state of
Florida has the highest fatality rate
of pedestrians based on population
and the state is trying to change that
statistic, said Jennifer Bradford of the
University of South Florida during
a Nov. 23 presentation to the city
commission on crosswalk safety.
Bradford shared statistics on
crosswalk safety such as 232
fatalities occurred with pedestrians
not crossing at the intersection as
compared to 65 pedestrian fatalities
in crosswalks. In 2009 65 percent of
pedestrian fatalities in the Tampa
Bay area occurred between 6 p.m. and
midnight, Bradford said.
Bradford shared tips for pedestrian
safety. Wear bright colors or reflective
clothing at night. Always be alert,
never text or talk on phone when
crossing. Look left, right and left
again. Watch for cars in parking lots.
Bicyclists on sidewalks must yield to
pedestrians, she said.
The safety program's grant funding
includes law enforcement warnings
and ticketing of pedestrians not using
crosswalks and motorists not yielding
to pedestrians in crosswalks, Bradford
said.

Tim Vieria, Gulfport: "I think the
government is annoyed about the
leaks because it will show the dirty
deals they've been doing. I don't trust
politicians on either side of the aisle. It
may be a breach of National Security,
but I like sunshine on my operations.
As to troop movement information,
it's probably already happened so it
won't matter. Everyone's been spying
on everyone else forever anyway.


Susie Hammond, So. Pasadena: "I
think that it does threaten National
Security. Two of my best friends are
Marine Corps veterans and that
really makes me upset to think that
some guy could put them or any
troops in harm's way, especially the
information about troop movement
and strategies. I think prosecution of
the owner of Wikileaks is appropriate.
I don't think I would want to read the
documents, but some I'm sure will
want to just for the thrill of reading
something secret."

Gabber December 2 December 8, 2010


Jason Ferris, Gulfport: "Iwould say
it probably is a threat to our National
Security but I also think that the
secret documents should have been
open to every American citizen so
we can see what our government is
doing. I'm sure there was some stuff
in there that was detrimental, but
we really need an open government.
I think there is a place for classified
information, but at the same time,
if we are not permitted to see the
documents, then arrange for some
sort of oversight committee that will
see them and determine if they can be
viewed by the public. This will ensure
that at least someone is keeping
account of what the government
is doing. But then of course, that
committee could also be corrupted,
especially if they are politicians.
The fact that an American soldier
stole the information and gave it to
that guy from Wikileaks almost had
me thinking that maybe it was done
to take emphasis off of the current
North/South Korean situation. But
why is the government so outraged?
Is it an attempt to cover up some
things or to fleece the American
people? I don't know, but there is
some security risk involved; I'm just
not sure how much is hype and how
much is true."


Hilda Russell, St. Pete: "I think it's
very bad and an absolute threat to
National Security. That information
could put troops in harm's way. It's
really terrible that an American
serviceman in the Armed Forces
would be the one to leak those
classified documents; that's just
not what being an American is all
about. Can you imagine? It would
be like standing up against your
country and fellow soldiers. Giving
that information to someone who
publishes it for the world to see, that's
just wrong. I don't have any desire to
read any of it; I wouldn't understand
most of it anyway. It's too technical."

Letters
Buying Local
Depends on Locale
Dear Editor: I would like to
respond to the letter that appeared
in last week's Gabber regarding the
sale of imported garlic at Kilpatrick's
Produce stand at Gulfport's Tuesday
Fresh Market. The writer is correct in
encouraging shoppers not to assume
all produce is local, and to check
labels or ask. By all means, anyone
who intends to buy only local produce
should check on its origins.
However, garlic, among other crops,
is not ordinarily grown commercially
in Florida and is not currently in
season here. Other items not grown
locally are also made available by the
Kilpatrick family at the Market as a
convenience to shoppers who would
like to have them on hand, including
apples, asparagus, pineapples
and bananas. Many shoppers still
appreciate cooking with garlic this
time of year, even if it does not
originate in Florida.
Luckily, we are now heading
into Florida's most prosperous
agricultural season. Avocados,
citrus fruits, peppers, squash, green
beans, egg plants, radishes, herbs,


Stone Crab
Claws

Med. 10199

cucumbers, beets, romaine and leaf
lettuce and more are available at
the Kilpatrick's stand at the Market,
and have come from local or Florida
growers, many from neighboring
Hillsborough County.
Every week, the Fresh Market
also features an alternative produce
vendor, Parke Family Hydrofarms.
Gary Parke and his family grow their
own organic, hydroponic produce in
nearby Dover, Florida. Every item
from the Parke Family is grown
locally on their own farm. As most
"locavores" know, what is grown
locally is mostly limited to what is in
season where we live. These choices
will also multiply as the growing
season becomes more favorable here.
The best way to ensure that your food
is locally grown is to grow your own!
Organic herb, fruit and vegetable
plants and seeds, as well as organic
soil amendments are available from
Market vendors every week. And
Gulfport now has a community
garden with plots available to the
public for a nominal fee.
We are proud to always have locally
grown choices available to those who
support our Gulfport Fresh Market.

Be Ever Vigilant
Dear Editor: I always lock my
bike in the garage, but the other
morning my husband put my bike
right outside our garage door partly
behind a bush at the top of our
driveway. Someone walked up my
driveway and snatched my beloved
ladies black Trek beach cruiser. I live
right across the street from the police
department. You would think that
would be a deterrent, but obviously
not.
Let this be a warning to everyone,
nothing of value is safe in your own
yard, so put it under lock and key.
And pay attention to things around
you.

Excerpts heard at the November 23, 2010

St. Pete Beach

City Commission Meeting


Public Comment


& Council Quotes

"It is not about drug rehab, it is about being afraid to walk in your
own neighborhood, it is about crimes witnessed next door or down the
street...nobody should be afraid to walk in their neighborhood, not in
St. Pete Beach." -Residents on proposing a nuisance abatement board after
witnessing activity such as drug deals that concerned them in the West Corey
Avenue area.
"I would be glad to, if you like to get the chief.. .we just donit have
arrests and convictions tied to specific property that would fall under
that specific state statute." -City Manager Mike Bonfield to the commission
on having the police department provide crime statistics and information on
nuisance abatement boards at a January city commission meet. The commission
decided to continue the discussion with input from the police department at an
upcoming meeting.
"So over $50 bucks for every man, woman and child in St. Pete Beach,"
-Vice Mayor Jim Parent on the per person breakdown of tax costs of city legal
fees. The city commission approved an additional $235,000 for legal expenses
from reserves out of a total of $549,000 for the last fiscal year.
"You can blame it on Larry, Moe and Curly but unless you start looking
at the group ... Guys you're getting fleeced. This city is getting fleeced,
and it is not just that we are getting fleeced by the people that are upset
with some of our rules, but by the attorneys that we hired." -A resident
asking the commission about if they go to any of the depositions and other
legal procedures. The commissioners said that they have attended depositions
and trials.
"I want to talk about canceling the second meeting in December."
-City Manager Bonfield on just having one city commission meeting in
December. The commission agreed to meet on Dec. 14 and cancel the Dec. 28
meeting.
"Terri, I want to wish you well." Commissioner Bev Garnett to City Clerk
Terri McMaster who resigned as clerk effective early January 2011.

Happy Holidays
The show at the Treasure Island
Community Center featuring the
works of five Art Guild members
continues through December 28.
This week we present artists Jerry
Palmer and Jeanne Sarkis.
Jerry Palmer's passion for painting
brought her to classes at the
Manatee Art Center in Bradenton.
She prefers pastels as her medium.
He delight in painting character
studies is reflected in "Spunky
Young Navajo" and "Good Mornin' "
Strong contrasts in color and shape
give us a taste of "French Market".
"Retrievin' shows soft water
reflections with subtle gradations of
tone and a pet in hopes for another
toss.
Theproficiencyofoilpainter Jeanne
Sarkis is evident in "Feathers and
Pride" where dramatic use of values
and color captures the spirit of this
portrait. Skillful composition in
"Coast of Maine" and the weathered
beachhouse in "Waiting on Plum
Island" scripts the beauty and
character of our country's northeast
shore. Sense the drama in "Waiting
Game" as the tiger stalks its prey.
Our Community Center is located
on 106th Avenue just east of Gulf
Blvd. Call 547-4575, ext. 238 for
hours of operation.

Shelter, from front page
are checked against a watch list of
sexual predators provided by the
Gulfport Police Department. No one
on that list will be allowed into the
shelter. The shelter will only open
if temperatures reach 40 degrees or
below.
Assistant Shelter Coordinator and
volunteer Judy Ryan, who has been
with the church for nineteen years,
said that although the church is
small, they wanted to do something
to help their community.
"We only have about 25-30 members;
we're very small and don't have a
lot of money. But we've opened up
our Fellowship Hall room for those
in need on a cold night," she said.
"Some of our snowbirds and elderly
come down for the winter and a lot
of their homes don't have heat, only
air conditioning. We welcome them
as well."
Using money from donations
and fundraisers, the church and
its volunteers bought blankets at
Walmart to go with the 3ft X 7ft
green sleep mats they received from


the Coalition. Each guest must
supply their own pillow, if they want
one. They were also able to purchase
MREs; meals ready to eat, so that
each guest can leave with some food
in their hands the next morning.

"We will have a warm dinner for
them and snacks after dinner. We
will also serve them breakfast; we
do have a kitchen, microwave and
roasting pans so we can reheat food
if we need to," said church volunteer
Janet Shepherd who shares the title
of Assistant Shelter Coordinator with
Ryan. Both she and Ryan will be part
of a three-person team who will stay
at the shelter when guests arrive
for the night. The shelter manager
is the church pastor, Pastor Danny
Belus, who will also volunteer when
needed.
"We have several volunteers who will
also be taking different night shifts,
but we will always have at least
one man as part of our team," Ryan
explained. "The men and women will
also be separated on opposite sides
of the room. We find it's just easier,
more private and safer that way as


well. We also want to make them as
comfortable as we can. We have a
donated TV that has a VCR for people
to watch movies and I'm sure some
will bring cards to pass the time."
Because of its very limited size, the
church cannot accept families, only
men and women.
"If a family arrives here, we will
call the Coalition and they will help
that family find a hotel room for the
night," said Ryan.
The church will only open the
shelter from 6:30 p.m. to 6:30 a.m.
and they have an "open door policy",
which means that any police, fire
or city officers are allowed on the
premise at any time. The Pinellas
County Coalition for the Homeless is
slightly different; those officers must
be invited.
Trinity Church of the Nazarene is
accepting donations of single-serving
food and snacks, canned soups,
puddings, jellos, cereal bars, crackers
and individual fruit juices as well as
peanut butter, jellies, ground coffee
and packaged cookies to stock their
shelter. They will also gratefully
accept new or nearly new cotton
blankets.
For more information or to donate,
please call Judy Ryan at the church,
727-239-1443.

via--

at the community center.











ItStoroscoDe Guide


By Holiday Mathis
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21).
There's conflict in your world, and
you'll rise above it. Breathe through
the tension. Then put some distance
between you and the problem. This
will allow you to look at the situation
from another angle. The shift in
perspective helps you see how you
might come together on a higher level
as friends.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You
have huge passion at your disposal,
but you're very cool about how you
show it. You realize that if you arrive
on the scene with the intensity of a
thunderbolt, you'll scare everyone.
Instead, you let the energy build up
inside you. You'll release it at just
the moment that it will do the most
good.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). A
certain belief is dominating your
existence this week. The events that
unfold, the environments you visit
and inhabit, and the people you
interact with all seem to be in cahoots
in regards to this dominant belief.
Whether or not the belief happens to
be true is irrelevant. Everything will
match up in support of it.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). It will
be liberating to give up any residual
opinions you might harbor that really
don't belong in your contemporary
world. Maybe it's something you
picked up from your parents or
from society in times gone by. You'll
recognize that the idea no longer
applies, and you'll gladly give it up.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). The
best relationships are balanced.
Although it would be tacky for you
to tally up the friendship points to
see who is ahead, keeping track in
some private way might be a good
idea this week. In a true friendship,
you both have something to gain
from the connection. It's a win-win
arrangement.


TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You
have creative energy welling up in
you and at first will not know how to
best direct it. Also, it feels like you
don't have time to waste in making
things that are not useful or practical.
However, the truth is that the world
needs your creativity and you are a
better person for having expressed
your gifts.
GEMINI (ill.,y 21-June 21). You
expect yourself to be disciplined and
self-motivated. If you falter, it might
help you to know that the top players
in any game require teammates.
Even the very best athletes in the
world hire coaches to keep them on
track. Success is never really a solo
effort. Everyone needs someone.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Take
note of your issue with another
person, and see whether you can
figure out why you feel the way
you do. Usually, the thing that
bothers you about someone else will
be a tendency that's in you, too.
Otherwise, why would you find it so
irritating? Ask yourself what you are
so afraid of. The answer frees you.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Those who
work half as hard as you still seem to
get by. It may seem to you that they
are getting away with something, but
they are not. They are simply doing
what's expected of them. You expect
more of yourself and do more. The
rewards for this are immense and
yet not always so obvious.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Human
nature dictates that in order to avoid
pain you'll remember the cause of
it and steer clear of that source. So
it may not be easy for you to forget
the stinging past, but try anyway.
You'll be so much happier when you
regularly remember the parts of your
life that made you feel joyful.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Look
at the work people do, and let that
speak louder than their opinions and


CA/IUI; /,,' I I, S YKL) wlY I


posturing. Just because a person has
a serious demeanor doesn't mean
they are doing the smart or sensible
thing. A person can be brilliant with a
smile on his face and can accomplish
hugely important tasks laughing all
the way.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21).
You can't make a full-out business
plan for your personal life because
there are too many variables and
unknowns and because most of the
results you want are intangible
and therefore not easily quantified.
However, it is good to have some
kind of desire, direction and goal for
how you want to love and be loved.
This Week's Birthdays: You have
a knack for landing in fortuitous
situations and will do so often this
year. When you bestow your trust
in someone, you'll be in good hands.
And there will be excellent advisers
around you for matters of finance and
love, as well. This month brings a
small miracle. Next month your work
will provide creative satisfaction and
the means to make an investment.
You'll see a return in June. You'll
make a trade off in January that
will be good for your health and your
personal life.

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.

Lights Contest"

CommissionerofPublicWorks, Arthur
Penny, and the South Pasadena
Beautification Committee announce

Contest". All retail businesses, home
owners and multi-family complexes

Annual Lighted
Christmas Boat Parade
Boca Ciega Yacht Club, a not for
profit organization of over 200
family memberships, is holding its
25th Annual Lighted Christmas
Boat Parade on Saturday December
11. Members spend many hours
planning and then decorating
their boats in hopes of sharing the
holiday spirit with the surrounding
communities. Residents of Gulfport,
South Pasadena, and St. Petersburg
frequently contact the club for
the date so holiday parties can be
planned around the event.
This year the parade will begin
by entering the Gulfport Municipal
Marina at approximately 6 p.m. It
will then travel past William's Pier
in Gulfport and into the canals of
Town Shores Condominiums. Due
to great interest and support from
the Pasadena Yacht and Country
Club, the boat parade route will be
modified to add their community.
This will extend the length of the
parade and effect the finish time.
The final leg is to motor back east
and enter the canal leading to the
Broadwater community. For those
non-members who do not wish to
complete this leg, please feel free
to use the club's T-Docks so you can
easily join us for the post celebration
party.
There is a small entry fee of $5 plus
two or more unwrapped toys. Each
year toys are collected for "Operation
Santa," and presented to Gulfport's
Police Department for distributing
to needy children.


Sail and power boats are welcome
to join in the fun. There is a sign up
board posted at the club,4600 Tifton
Drive S. in Gulfport. Entry forms
will be available the night of the
parade.
Donated prizes are awarded to the
participants during the post parade
party, always to a clubhouse filled
with family and friends.
For information regarding
participation or to sponsor this
parade, please contact Barb Meyer at
727-430-7241. The B.C.Y.C. family
wishes you a joyous holiday season
and a prosperous New Year.

Christmas Play
at First Unity
First Unity of St. Petersburg is
showcasing a two-night spectacular
play called "BETHLEHEM...the
beginning" this holiday season.
Written by Alan Armstrong and his
mother, Margo Armstrong, it is a
refreshingly original version of the
birth of the baby Jesus seen through
the loving eyes of the shepherd boy
and his flock, an amusing assortment
of stable characters and three wacky
Persian camels.
With cleverly written original music
and many of your favorite Christmas
carols woven into the dialogue, you
will be transported to a magical,
mystical event-filled Bethlehem
stable where you get to meet
Mr. Mouse, a sarcastic, opportunistic
and somewhat devious stable
manager who attempts to exploit this
unusual event. That is, until he comes
face to face with the unconditional
love of the new-born baby Jesus and
in a transformational moment, is
never the same.
This funny musical production will
be performed at the First Unity of
St. Petersburg, 460 46 Avenue N. in
St. Petersburg on December 17 and
18 at 7 p.m. Donations accepted,
everyone welcomed! Learn more at
www.unitycampus.org.

Keeping Us Safe
Let's stop community and terror
crimes in their tracks. Let's
protect ourselves from the
possibility of drive-by shootings, car
bombs, sales ofillegal drugs, transfers
of stolen goods, or possession of illegal
weapons, or drunken driving.
After all, we are killing more people
in our drug saturated big cities
than are being killed in the two war
theatres of Iraq and Afghanistan.
Drunken driving takes an estimated
10,000 lives a year (25 per cent of
40,000). And, of course, we have
to stop the possibility of terrorist
attacks.
We need to pat down people as they
walk our public streets and search
cars and trucks as they cruise our
public streets. Certainly we need to
do the same in every public venue:
malls, sports stadiums of all sizes
and types, theatres, museums,
night clubs, restaurants, street
gatherings.
Those are places where terrorist
attacks have taken place in other
parts of the world, but have largely
been thwarted in this country. It's
not likely that we'll be protected
forever.
That's why, when possible, the
"Big Search" needs to hit everyone -


men, women, children, white, black,
in between, old, young. It might
be helpful if we initiated random,
unannounced house searches to find
illegal weapons, stolen goods, illegal
substances, even stolen children or
abused spouses, or violations of any
number of ordinances, laws and
conditions.
I'm quite certain that there is public
support for this. After all, we want
to be 100 per cent safe, don't we?
What's a little inconvenience? Over
the years I talked to a few people who
grew up in the National Socialist
Party regime in Germany and some
remarked how free the streets were
from crime during that time.
Indeed, I traveled in the Soviet
Union and its satellites in the 1960s
and later in the 1980s and early
1990s. All suitcases were thoroughly
searched before being delivered to
your hotel rooms. All visitors were
carefully vetted and recorded and
kept track of.
In Russia, when visiting another
city, citizens had to report to the
local police station and surrender
passports or identification papers.
Tourist or visitors' hotel rooms
were often bugged and operatives
followed them at bars or observed
them in restaurants. Even the local


prostitutes sometimes operatives
themselves- assisted. Similarly,
though not quite as extensively, those
procedures are followed in Cuba
today.
At check points at the Berlin Wall
that separated the communist east
and capitalist west sections, cars
were practically dismantled. If you
were in a bus, East German soldiers
boarded and checked all papers and
people carefully. One also had to
account for money spent. Traveling
from Czechoslovakia to East Berlin
in 1968 our train was held up for 45
minutes because the total number
of marks recorded at the start of
the journey did not match the total
number at the end. Also, at the wall,
they shot people who tried to cross
from the East to the West.
This all made for safe streets and
safe countries. They would make for
safer streets and communities now.
We have a good start. Homeland
Security is really cracking down at
airports. The Candid Camera nude
scanners are effective. The pat downs
now include hand feeling everywhere,
particularly the crotch.
While it's sometimes embarrassing
for people who need certain
protections and padding there, it
makes us all safe. A majority of the
people, according to polls and random
television and newspaper sampling,
don't object.
I've read that these searches might
be duplicated for travelers on buses
and trains. Of course, the searches
include everyone. That eliminates
the invasive and unfair "profiling"
that might create political turmoil.
In the meanwhile, communities are
weighing in with traffic light cameras,
surveillance cameras on the public
streets, and even cameras in the public
parks. The latter two are monitored by
police or can be monitored selectively
as needed. Random car stops, though
not full searches, already take place.
Google's filming of neighborhoods and
streets, and the occasional pirating of
wireless signals eventually could help
law enforcement, also.
So, we're not far from being
completely safe, but I'm not certain
we decided from what or whom.

Holiday Shopping
Safety Tips
As the holiday season has kicked
into high gear, it is important to
be mindful of safety and security.
Gulfport Crime Awareness would
like to provide a few reminders:
* Do not leave packages in clear view
in your vehicle.
SMake sure you lock your car
doors.
*When using your debit card to pay
for your purchases, stand in front
of the machine to block others from
seeing your pin number. Remember
to take your receipt with you.
* Have your keys and cell phone out
and ready to use before you walk out
of the store.
* When returning to your vehicle with
your purchases utilize a shopping
cart instead of walking out alone and
loaded down with packages; which
makes you vulnerable.
*Be wary of persons offering to
assist you to load your purchases in
your vehicle. If you need assistance,
request it from the store.
*Lock your vehicle once you are
back in it.
Do not sit in your car catching up
your checkbook. You can do that at
home.

You & THE


LAW
By Robert J. Myers, Esq.
Common Questions
of Law: Wills
In the every day practice of law
at Akerson Law Offices, common
questions of law are asked by
clients of the firm. A few of the most
common questions which lawyers in
our firm respond to concerning wills
and probate are as follows:
WHAT ARE THE FORMAL
REQUIREMENTS
FOR A LEGAL WILL
IN FLORIDA?
Whoever makes a will in the State
of Florida must be at least eighteen
(18) years of age. Your will must be
in writing. You must be of sound
mind or be competent when you sign
your will. A will must be witnessed
in a special manner when you sign


Whitman Insurance Agcy Inc.
Brenda Whitman LUTCF, Agent
5308 Gulfport Blvd. So.
Gulfport, FL. 33707
Bus: 727-345-1668


it. This requires that certain legal
formalities be observed at the time
of execution of the will. Finally, in
order to be effective, a will must be
acceptable to the Probate Court.
CAN I CROSS OUT OR WRITE
ADDITIONAL WORDS
IN MY WILL?
It is not a good idea to cross out
words or add words to a will after the
will has been signed and executed. If
you write on the will after you have
signed and executed it, you run a
serious risk that some or all of the
will may be determined by a Probate
Court Judge to be invalid.
WHY DO I NEED A WILL?
Everyone needs to have a will.
People with minor children needwills
so that they can name a guardian for
their minor children in the event of
death. A will enables you to decide
who gets your property. Without a
will, the laws of the State of Florida
decide who gets your real estate and
personal property. A will also allows
you to name who will manage the
distribution of your estate. This
party is known as the personal
representative under Florida law.


Take your retirement savings with you.
Rolling over your 401(k) to a State Farm
IRA is easy. I can take care of the paperwork
while helping you with a retirement plan that
meets your needs. Like a good neighbor,
State Farm is there.

P097300 State Farm Mutual Automobile Insurance Company" Bloomington, IL. statefarm.com"


IS MY CURRENT WILL
STILL GOOD?
That depends. As long as your current
will meets the formal requirements
for a legal will in Florida, it is "good"
until you change or revoke it in
accordance with Florida law. You can
change your will as often as you wish
so long as you comply with the legal
requirements concerning capacity,
fraud, undue influence, duress and
meet the formal requirements for a
will in the State of Florida.
Both monetary and personal
changes in your life may require a
change in your will. For example,
divorce, marriage, birth of children,
and deaths of relatives may be a
reminder to review the adequacy of
your current will. In addition, tax law
changes and a change in the amount
or makeup of your estate may make
it advisable to change your will to
better serve your legal heirs.

Law Offices which is located at

telephone number is 727-347-5131.
Mr. Myers welcomes calls regarding
this article and other related legal
topics. This column outlines general
legal principles and is not intended to
give you legal advice. If you have a
specific question about the law, please
consult an attorney.

Carols by Candlelight
By Lion Jim Minder
Our Gulfport Lion Club invites you
to join us on Friday, December 17
for our Carols by Candlelight from
7-9 p.m. We will be singing a wide
variety of both religious as well as
secular Christmas carols at our Den
located at 4630 Tifton Drive S. We
have secured the services of Lions
past District Governor Norman
Xanders to play the music on his
instruments. For those of you who


have never heard Norman Xander's
music before, allow me to tell you
that you are in for a treat.
We will be serving complimentary
punch as well as cakes, pies, cookies
as well as assorted pastry treats.
Many of you will want to try Mabel's
infamous "Cherry Crunch". We will
sing five sets of three Christmas
carols. In between each set we
will be discussing memorable past
Christmas events. I will start us out.
After each following set, we want you
to tell us about your own memorable


Christmas events, so come prepared.
It will be fun.
We at the Gulfport Lions Club want
you to know about our services to
help the visually impaired before this
need presents itself so that if and
when it does, you know that our help
is available to you.
We look forward to you joining us
for our Carols by Candlelight. Call
me with any questions at 866-0316.
Merry Christmas and Happy New

H rdaths

By Cathy Salustri


Thanksgiving: That's
Not How We Do
Things Down Here
Sam supposed to be putting a
turkey in the oven, and I will,
in a minute. It's the day before
Thanksgiving, but my family rarely
eats turkey on Thanksgiving. Which
is fine, because I don't like turkey. I
like the leftovers, in the middle of the
night, with a cold glass of milk and
the refrigerator door leaking yellow
light into the kitchen. That's when it's
good; that's my real Thanksgiving.
One year, during that brief period
where I made turkey to make others
happy, I sent my Thanksgiving
guests home with leftovers and slices
of bread. That way they could have
turkey sandwiches. That's why I'm
making a turkey today: for those
lovely sandwiches, with cornbread
dressing, gravy, slabs of turkey, and
some cranberries on each slice of
bread.
So it's fitting that this column comes
the week after Thanksgiving, when
the only turkey in sight comes on a
sandwich.
You see, the way I see Thanksgiving
is the way I see Florida: that's not
how we do it down here. You've heard
that before, right? "That's not how we
do it up north!" is a popular refrain
in our Florida bakeries, pizzerias
and grocery stores. Bagels are better
in Manhattan, and Chicago and
New York both beat Florida hands
down in the pizza arena. Wisconsin
cheese reigns as the Dairy King,


and everyone knows that Philly has
better... well, apparently, everything.
Some people might try to tell you
we've got it wrong down here. No
matter what "it" is, it's not how they
do things up north.
To these people, I say: damn
straight. Things in the Sunshine
State are different. And that's what
I'm thankful for, not just today,
or tomorrow, but every day that I
wake up in this amazing, messed
up, hanging-chad, environmentally
compromised, criminally creative,
wonderful, backwards, glorious
state.
I am thankful that we don't have
bagels the size of a dinner plate. I
love that finding a pizza that's any
good is only slightly less difficult
than finding the Holy Grail. I'm so
happy that our cheese steaks and
hard rolls don't compare to what you
had up north. Because that clears
the way for Cuban bread (invented
by Cubans in Tampa, thank you very
much), Gulf shrimp, oysters (yeah,
those are all us, too) and key lime
and sour orange pies.
I love that I'm sweating in November
and that it's been warm enough that
I've had my kayak out three times
this week. I am glad that you can't
stand the heat, because that means
that as crowded as Florida gets, you
will never live here in July and that
is when we get our state back.
I think it's -fantastic that we have
the tension between developers and
- well, just about everybody else. It
means that we understand that we
have something of value, a treasure

in this state's natural bounty that
some of us are willing to fight for,
no matter the cost. Maybe you
don't have that kind of nonsense up
north, but you also don't have white
sand beaches, the Everglades, or
a thousand other reasons to spend
winters here instead of there.
No, that's not how we do it down
here. You have your pilgrims; we have
our Spaniards. Your Thanksgiving
celebrates the pilgrims and the
Indians, but, as Florida historian
Michael Gannon says, "At the time
the Pilgrims came to Plymouth,
St. Augustine was up for urban
renewal." What's that now? Yup, St.
Augustine predates your northern
society by over a century- 1513, to
be exact. Turkey and squash? Yeah,
that's not how we do it down here.
Our meals with the natives consisted
of trout, sheepshead, oyster, heart of
palm and shrimp.
We can't claim Thomas Jefferson
or George Washington, but we have
Ponce de Leon and Jaques LeMoyne.
We have no Davey Crockett, but
we have Totch Brown, Everglades
pioneer and folk hero. We don't
have the founding fathers, but we
do have founding mothers: the
three Marjories- Marjorie Kinnan
Rawlings, Marjorie Carr, and
Marjorie Stoneman Douglas. We
don't have Mount Rushmore, the
Rockies, or the Appalachian Trail.
We do have the Suwannee River, the
Florida Keys, and the Everglades.
No, that's not how you do things up
north. You have Thanksgiving with
winter coats and Indian corn. We
have oyster dressing, cornbread, and,
on occasion, deep-fried turkey. It's
Thanksgiving, Florida style, and it's
how we do things down here. Keep
your cheese steaks. We can always
visit.
Look, I know there's a lot about
Florida that's messed up. I'm not
blind. She's got her problems big
ones but I love her. I wouldn't trade
mosquitoes, tiny bagels, and crappy
pizza for all the turkey dinners in
the world. Because, to me, the way
you do things up north is a fancy
Thanksgiving dinner, and Florida?
She's my turkey sandwich.

Leaping Tall Marina Gates
Bound.... Buck Batcheller


in a Single


By Cathy Salustri


Buck Batcheller and his
coworker were trimming trees
near the Gulfport Municipal
Marina when they heard
yelling. At first the two
Gulfport Parks employees
thought perhaps they were
hearing a fight, but then Buck
heard a distinct call for help.
He looked around but couldn't
see anyone.
"I walked over to the fence and
I heard 'help!' again," he says.
He didn't have a key to the
Buck Batcheller scaled the marina gates to answer marina gates, so he climbed
a call for help when a local sailor misjudged his step over the gate and rushed down
getting off his boat. "He's my hero," Tony Fields, over te gte an rse dow
Assistant to the Gulfport Harbormaster, said. "There doic re
were two guys, and one said 'I'm not going to climb louder; he told Buck he had
over the fence', so Buck went over." fallen in the water.
Buck found Dr. Ron Singerman
in the water by his 27' Island Packet, Good Idea. Dr. Singerman explained that
he had fallen in the water and asked Buck to help him climb out of the water.
Dr, Singerman praised Buck after the incident, saying he had no idea the
maintenance worker for the city had to scale the marina gates to reach him.
A sheepish Dr. Singerman who said he was not looking forward to the
ribbing he expected from the Boca Ciega Yacht Club blamed his trifocals for
the adventure.
"I was getting off the boat, and having trifocals... well, everything looks
farther away. I looked through the trifocals and saw the dock, which really
wasn't there," he says. The next thing he knew he found himself half in the
water and half holding onto the dock.
Buck boarded the boat and, at Dr. Singerman's request, attached the swim
ladder in short order so Dr. Singerman could climb back aboard his boat. Aside
from a few scrapes on his shin and arm, Dr. Singerman said only his pride
suffered.

Serving GulfportArea for 12 Years


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


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


more at 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.

Seminole Vo-Tech.


to move. When they did not,
the police cut up their tents,
rendering them unlivable.
Catholic Charities then
stepped in and found a
20 acre-site Pinellas Park
where some homeless had
already been living. Using
a 3 million dollar grant
from the state and another
1 million from a local
government grant, Catholic
Charities is now overseeing
the building of low-income
apartments on the site, as
well as outbuildings for
bathrooms and showers. A
community center is also in
the works. But there are still
over 300 tents that house the
homeless there.
About two years ago,
Master Carpenter and
Seminole Vo-tech Carpentry
instructor John Veestrukwas
looking for a real community
building project for his
students to do; a project
that would eventually test
their skills for the National
Certification Center for
Education and Research or
N.C.C.E.R test; a final test
for certification. Guidance
counselor Jim Gill had heard
about Project Hope, called
Catholic Charities and
offered help to build small
individual buildings, called
casitas, for the homeless.
Other construction
companies had built similar
small buildings on the site of
Project Hope, but Veestruk
knew he could make them
better. The buildings are
6ft x 8ft and have three
windows and a door which
can be locked. Veestruk's
students added small, inset
shelving to accommodate
toiletries and small items.
Some of the casitas are also
equipped with a solar panel
on the roof, which feeds a
small battery inside the
shelter, powering LED lights
and a small fan; miniscule
creature comforts most take
for granted. But the solar
panels are costly at $250.00


Gabber December 2 December 8, 2010






each and the batteries are about
$50.00. Catholic Charities, who is
paying for the materials deemed the
solar panels too costly; thus only 4 of
the 15 casitas have those amenities.
3 of the buildings have been delivered
to Project Hope so far.
18 year-olds Chris Jelenc and
Curtis Adams have worked on
the project for over two years; 16
year-olds Jason Koehl and Zack
Thornsbury have both been involved
with the building since last year.
Jelenc, Adams and Koehl all go to
Seminole High, Thornsbury goes to
Osceola. Jelenc went with Veestruk
out to Project Hope to see how their
efforts were making a difference.
"I'm very grateful that I have a
home; so many people we saw had
just fallen on bad times, lost their
job, or just been unlucky. It made
me realize how fortunate I am and
how much I can make a difference,"
Jelenc said.
Thornsbury agreed. "I think it
builds character; I think the labor
has built a sense of confidence in me
to know that we are actually helping
people."
"At first, I took carpentry just to
kind of goof off and have fun. But as
we were going along with the project,
I realized that we can truly help
people less fortunate than ourselves.
I think its character shaping," Koehl
said.
All four boys also help the rest of
the carpentry class build Adirondack
chairs and picnic tables, which the
school sells to make money to buy
more materials.
Their budget may be small, but these
kids are making a big difference and
bringing some light to people who
are really in need. With so much
angst among today's youth, these
kids choose to build promises.
