Gulfport Yard Sale Changes
GULFPORT- After approving the ordinance
on its second reading, Gulfport now al-
lows its residents six garage sales per year
instead of four. Previously the city allowed
a permitless yard sale the first Saturday of
every month in addition to the four permit-
ted by ordinance.
At council's request the city will add lan-
guage to the permit application that appli-
cants agree to remove their items from the
yard by noon the following day.
The city does not charge for these permits.

Palm Tree Arsonist
Strikes Again
By Cathy Salustri
Shortly before 6 p.m. last Wednesday night,
Gulfport had another set fire, this time in Clam
Bayou. In keeping with the pattern of other set
fires, the person or persons who set this fire set it
at the base of a palm tree, according to Detective
Sergeant Rob Burkhart. Detective Sergeant
Burkhart noted that almost every palm tree fire
in the city has occurred between Wednesday
night and Thursday morning, although he
also noted that this fire occurred earlier than
the others, which often occur after two o'clock
Thursday morning.
"Other than the time, the M.O. is the same,"
Detective Sergeant Burkhart said.

Golf Carts: Gulfport
Looks to Change Rules;
Police Chief Speaks Out
By Cathy Salustri
Two years ago,
Gulfport city
council opted not
to allow non-street
legal golf carts
on city roads.
Although state law
makes provisions
and allows some
types of golf carts
on certain roads,
some citizens
SChief Robert Vincent
have asked once
'We need a traffic study
again for council to to comply with state law
consider allowing that says the city must
other types of golf make a determination
carts on the roads. that it's safe to operate
A street-legal golf golf carts on city roads.'
cart is also a low
speed vehicle, or LSV. State law (Florida
Statute 316.2122) allows LSVs, including
golf carts, under the following conditions:
*They must have headlamps, stop lamps,
turn signal lamps, taillamps, reflex
reflectors, parking brakes, rearview mirrors,
windshields, seat belts,
* They must have vehicle identification

Police Officers Offered
Free Access to Stetson
Exercise Equipment
GULFPORT - The city signed a
"hold harmless" agreement with
Stetson Law School. To help
Gulfport police officers meet Police
Chief Robert Vincent's new fitness
guidelines for officers, he would
like officers to have access to fit-
ness equipment. Stetson will allow
officers to use its exercise equip-
ment for free.

City Approves Power
Agreements With Gas,
Electric Companies
two franchise agreements at Tuesday
night's meeting. Councilmembers
passed an ordinance granting
Peoples Gas System (Tampa Electric
Company) and Progress Energy
to non-exclusive rights to provide
natural gas and power, respectively.
This does not mean other companies
cannot offer the services in Gulfport;
rather, these contracts allow these

companies to use city right-of-ways
to provide service to residents and

St. Pete Donates
Rescue Vehicle
GULFPORT-With council'sblessing,
Gulfport's CERT (Community
Emergency Response Team) accepted
a surplus Freightliner fire and
resuce vehicle, a "rescue box truck,"
according to city manager Jim
O'Reilly. The city of St. Petersburg
initially donated the truck to Boca
Ciega's medical program, but with
program cuts the school could no
longer use the truck for training.
CERT will use the truck as a "rehab"
truck for emergency response
personnel. The truck will offer a
controlled environment with water
andhigh-energy snacksforresponders
as well as a way to monitor vital signs
of responders to ensure they're fit for
returning to whatever emergency
situation they're facing.
In lieu of a catastrophe, CERT will
use the vehicle for education. The
city will pay to insure the vehicle.

Arsonist, from front page
However, he notes, police saw
cigarette butts around the tree, and,
while police remain skeptical about
the possibility of coincidence, "a
careless smoker could have started
the fire."
The police are addressing this series
of palm tree-related fires - technically
criminal mischief, not arson, as
they did not damage a structure -
with problem-oriented patrols. A
"problem-oriented patrol" means
that one officer leads the charge in
finding solutions to a specific ongoing
criminal problem.
Officer Matt Parks is in charge of the
problem-oriented patrol. Anyone with
information can call Officer Parks at
the Gulfport police non-emergency
number, 893-1030.
Police report no casualties other
than the palm tree.

Cats, kittens and
free toys!
Now through July 31st, when you

that will bring your new pet hours of

Pass-A-Grille Post
Office Closes After
106 Years
By Melissa Lattman
Grille post office closed its doors
permanently on June 17. People
watched as postal workers took down
the post office's sign. The post office
donated the sign to the Gulf Beaches
Historical Museum.

Pass-A-Grille had a post office
since 1905. People filled the small
post office lobby to say good-bye at
a reception on Friday. Patrons took
their pictures with longtime postal
manager Dick Weber. Post office
boxes, and other services will still be
available at the Corey Avenue post
office. Weber will also be at the Corey
Avenue location.
Frank T. Hurley Jr. shared the early
days of the post office in his book
"Surf, Sand and Post Card Sunsets."

- 345-3337 Open:Mon.-Sat. 9am-6pm 347-3758
6856 GULFPORT BLVD. (in the Pasadena Shopping Center)

The Pass-A-Grille post office was the
first post office on the Gulf Beaches. It
opened in the lobby of the Bonhomie
Hotel on August 10, 1905. The post
office moved to Page's Pavilion at
Ninth Avenue and Gulf Way around
1912, Hurley wrote.
The Pass-A-Grille Post Office moved
to 8th Avenue in the 1930s or 1940s
adjacent to the location that closed
Friday. Shirley Merry Lynch, 85,
shared how her parents built the
building at 103 8th Avenue for the
post office in the early 1940s.
"We played badminton in the vacant
lot when I was a kid," she said.
Lynch's mother, Blanche Merry,
was the postmistress for 32 years,
until Blanche retired in 1962. Lynch
said she and her husband ran a drug
store for years--sharing the building
with the post office.

Growing Green at
the Casino Attracts
Other Local Leaders
By Cathy Salustri
What started out as a small local
event attracted close to 900 people
as well as other Pinellas and Florida
politicians. Saturday's Growing Green
event at the Gulfport Casino, the
brainchild of council woman Jennifer
Salmon and other local gardeners,
attracted an average of 125 people

every hour, according to city staff.
The event also attracted a Clearwater
council member, the Indian Rocks
Beach vice-mayor and Representative
Rick Kriseman.
I,\ .'~l- I.Ily was talking about
how they wanted to do this in their
own communities," Councilwoman
Salmon said. The event grew out of
the councilwoman's own passion for
environmentally sound landscaping.
It's a definite interest of mine to
promote this," she said "to get at the

aren't doing anything in their yard."
Since taking office the Ward Three
representative has taken an active
part in creating Gulfport Organic
Landscaping Days (GOLD); these
half-day events included seminars,
tours and workshops focused on
creating local organic gardens.
Out of these days grew Saturday's
Growing Greener event, which
brought together almost 40 vendors to
help Gulfportians learn about "green"
landscaping techniques. In keeping
with its policy to allow Gulfport
nonprofit groups one free use of city
buildings annually, the city donated
the use of the Casino (Growing
Greener represented both for-profit
and not-for-profit groups, according
to Councilwoman Salmon).
The free event included
demonstrations and information
sessions that helped arm attendees
with practical knowledge to allow
them to start their own gardens,
Councilwoman Salmon said.
Will this one time event become an
annual occurrence? Perhaps.
"There was a lot of talk that it should
be a regular event," the councilwoman
said Monday afternoon. She said that
if Growing Greener becomes an annual
event, she'd like to see it take place at
the start of one of Florida's growing
seasons, or when the weather was
more conducive to people to people
getting outside and gardening.
"A lot of people are excited, but it's
not the best time of year to start a
garden," she said.

groups also helped organize the

Gleek Performs at American Stage
By Melissa Lattman

ST. PETERSBURG- Have you ever imagined being on the hit FOX TV show "Glee?" The
popularity of the musical comedy show led to the addition of Gleek Camp to the American
Stage Theatre Company summer camp program.
"A lot of students and teachers were interested in the show Glee and when (American Stage
Theatre Company) came up with camps, they thought of Glee," said Katie Castonguay, an
American Stage Education Teaching Artist.
Singing complex harmonies by morning and dancing through the choreography by
afternoon, 15 area teens learned five new songs in a week. The cast put the finishing
touches on their performance the second week. This Friday they will perform them at 6:30
p.m. in the Community Room at the theatre company's 163 Third Street N. location. The
choreography is by Domenic Bisesti and music is by Nick White.

Boys & Girls Clubs
Present Tribute to
Fallen Police Officers
After the community experienced
the loss of three of St. Petersburg's
finest, children from the community
are using the tragedy to spread
In honor of fallen St. Petersburg
police officers Jeffrey Yaslowitz,
Tom Baitinger and David Crawford,
the Boys & Girls Clubs of the
Suncoast (BGCS) has teamed up
with Big3Records, SubbZero
Entertainment, LLC and TASCO
to create the tribute song "Let's Get
Together." The song is available for
download on iTunes and serves as a
fundraiser for the officer's families.
The project was led by BGCS
Conservatory Artist-in-Residence
and national recording artist Alex
"LX" Harris after he discussed the
tragedy with Herbert A. Murphy,
Director for the Royal Theatre Boys
& Girls Clubs Arts Academy, and
60 students. The song is sung by
children from the BGCS.
Officers Yaslowitz, Baitinger,
and Crawford were killed in the
line of duty in January. The crime
occurred just blocks away from
where many BGCS children live.
The song is available for download
on iTunes for $0.99, and the video
can be downloaded for $1.99. All the
proceeds will go directly to helping
out the families of the fallen officers.

City of St. Pete Beach: Comprehensive Plan
Q: How could re-adopting the community redevelopment plan effect
height in the large hotel district in St. Pete Beach?
A: City Manager Mike Bonfield said it depends on how much rebuilding is
done and the size of the lot. The maximum hotel height under the proposed
plan could expand hotel height to 12-stories or approximatelyl46 feet, if
the lot is three or more acres. Currently 50-feet is the maximum height for
hotels along Gulf Boulevard.
This is the same comprehensive plan the commission and voters approved
in 2008. Ajudge found the ballot summary language did not clearly explain
possible changes in height in the plan. Ballot summaries by state law are
limited to 75-words, which can make fitting key components in the summary
challenging. In March city voters returned comprehensive plan decisions
to the city commission. The state legislature earlier this month passed a
bill allowing the city commission to readopt the 2008 comprehensive plan
through the ordinance process. The commission scheduled the second and
final reading of the comprehensive plan for June 28.
To read the whole plan-- click on the comprehensive plan on the community
development page (under city departments) of the city's Web site www.

Pay Down or Save?
Dear Mary: My husband is receiving
a bonus from his work, and he would
like to use it to pay down our debt. I
want to save it. We have already cut
our debt by more than half, and if
we stick to my plan we will have our
debt paid off within the next year. If
we use this bonus to pay down debt,
we can pay everything off in the next
six months and start saving money
at that point. What do you think we
should do? -- Tanya, California
Dear Tanya: I am going to assume
that you do not have your Contingency
Fund in place, with enough money in
it to pay all of your bills for six months
without any income. Your Contingency
Fund is for emergencies. Having a
fully funded Contingency Fund is
more important than paying down
debt -- and you know how important
paying down debt is to me!
Here's why: Let's say you use that
bonus to pay down the debt. Two
months from now, life hits you with
a mighty blow. The same day your
air conditioning and heating system
blows up, you are in an auto accident
that's your fault. Even if you have
insurance, you will need money, and
you'll need it in a big hurry. What
will you do? Run to your credit cards?
Call your relatives? You'll be facing
financial trauma on top of everything
Let's say you put that bonus into
your Contingency Fund and continue
to pay down your debt, according to
your current plan. A year goes by.
Your debts will be paid, and you'll
have money in the bank. If during
that time something happened and
you had to use your CF, your debts
will still be paid.
My advice: Treat that bonus as
income. Give away 10 percent, and
then use the balance to jumpstart
your Contingency Fund.
Dear Mary: My husband and I both
went through difficult first marriages
with partners who wanted out. We
each got custody of our children, but
both marriages ended in bankruptcy.
This all happened over 30 years ago.
We've been married to each other for
almost 25 years. Would there be any
record of that old debt now? -- Kath,

Gabber June 23 - June 29, 2011

Dear Kath: In the U.S., a bankruptcy
filing never goes away. It becomes
a matter of public record just like
records of birth, marriage, divorce
and death.
In most cases, a personal bankruptcy
can only be reported to a person's

credit file for 10 years. Since your
filings were so long ago, under most
circumstances I bet they don't appear
on your individual credit reports.
As you apply for a mortgage or other
type of loan, the application will
include this question: "Have you ever
filed for bankruptcy?" Even though it
may not show up on your credit report,
you must respond "Yes" so as to not
submit a fraudulent application. The
lender could easily check through the
court system. This will be the case for
the rest of your lives.

Golf Cars, from front page
* They can only operate on roads with
speed limits of 35 miles per hour or
less, although they may cross roads
with higher speed limits as long as
they do so at an intersection.
*The owner must register and
insure the cart
* The driver must have a valid
driver's license
At the behest of Gulfport resident
Bonnie Bray, a resident who invested
in Jim Greenwald's golf cart business,
councilwoman Jennifer Salmon
brought the golf cart issue before
council once again. Council heard the
first reading of a city- specific golf cart
ordinance Tuesday night.
Gulfport city staff drafted an
ordinance (see this week's related
article about the council meeting to
find out how councilmembers voted)
that offers Gulfport drivers a more
relaxed version of state laws. If
this ordinance passes, Gulfport will
allow golf carts under the following
* Golf carts may not operate on 15th
Avenue, 22nd Avenue, 58th Street,
49th Street, Royal Palm, and any
streets shared with county or St.

* The city will not license the carts
*The city will not require the golf
carts to have a license plate
* They will not require headlamps,
stop lamps, turn signal lamps,
taillamps, reflex reflectors,
parking brakes, rearview mirrors,
windshields, seat belts, but drivers
may not operate golf cars without
such safety equipment between
sunset and sunrise.
* Golf carts will not have to have
vehicle identification numbers but
they will have to have a unique
"It's not different" than the state
law, city manager Jim O'Reilly said,
adding that the state ordinance allows
the city to allow the golf carts.
Gulfport police chief Rob Vincent
expressed hesitation about the
proposed ordinance. He said he
wanted a traffic study to comply with
state law that says the city must
make a determination that it's safe
to operate golf carts on city roads.
"I would feel much more comfortable
with that," he said, but adds that he
was unsure what the city's drivers
gained with the ordinance presented
Tuesday night.
"If you have to buy all this safety
equipment and you have to insure
it, the only thing you're saving is the
registration, and the registration on
one of these things is $40 a year. For
$40 a year we could not have to go
through all this," Chief Vincent said,
adding that while he has serious
safety concerns including those about
safety equipment not complying with
state statutes, he and his officers
would not hesitate to follow the will
of the council
"If the council's wish is that we do
this, my department will be 100%
behind it," he promised.

Golf Carts Will Not
Cruise City Streets
With a three-to-two vote, city council
voted against allowing golf carts on
city streets.
"I still am uncomfortable," Vice-
Mayor David Hastings, who said he
didn't like the language that indicated
the city determined it would be safe
for golf carts to operate on streets
when he, as a member of council, did
not know that. City attorney said
that without the language the state
would not allow the city to pass the

Chief of Police Rob Vincent said he
agreedwith the Vice-Mayor's concerns
on this point. He also expressed
concern over not mandating seat
belts as well as inspection issues.
Councilman Sam Henderson also
expressed concern over inspection
"Let me clarify: If we do this, I
absolutely want to be involved
somehow that these vehicles are
checked out... but actually doing
that is going to be a complicated
process," Chief Vincent told him.
Mayor Mike Yakes said "it would not
be my pleasure" to burden the police
department, although he favored the
idea of golf carts.
"How would you be able to cite
somebody for a DUI in a golf cart?"
Councilwoman Barbara Banno
asked. Chief Vincent said that his
officers could cite them the same as a
DUI involving any other vehicle.
"If we're going to require all of the
equipment... except for seatbelts,
which I think we would be remiss...
then it's almost a low-speed vehicle,"
Vice-Mayor Hastings said "The
point is, if we're requiring all this
equipment, why do we need to put all
of these regulations in there about
licensing and inspections? Let's just
go the one step and say 'we don't
need to do anything; the statute is
already hi .--'.
Councilman Henderson agreed.
Councilman Salmon asked the
Chief to speak about his father-
in-law's his experience with the
difference in pricing between a
vehicle manufactured as a low-speed
vehicle and one that is converted into
a low-speed vehicle.
"For some reason - I have no idea
why - it seems insurers charge" more
for the low-speed vehicle. "In order to
get a low-speed vehicle registered, it
has to be inspected" the chief said,
adding that the closest facility was in
east Tampa.
"By somebody who's qualified to do
that," the Vice Mayor said.
"Yes," the chief agreed. Before he
took his seat he assured council,
"You tell me what to do and I'll make
it work."
Those on council who voted no cited
safety concerns as the chief reason
for their vote.

By Holiday Mathis
CANCER (June 22-July 22). There
are "givers," and there are "takers."
Here's how you know that you're a
"giver." When you don't know what
else to do, you just give. This week,
you'll unselfishly help humanity by
building up the people around you in
any way you can. It mostly happens
in small gestures that mean more
than you realize at the time.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Maybe
you're feeling older and more mature
-- perhaps even a bit jaded and tired.
That's why it's important to nudge
your inner child awake. Call the
friends, play the games and read
the books of your youth. Conjure the
innocence inside you. The magic is all
around you. You just have to believe
it's there.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Think
of cut flowers on their second day
in the vase: They may look just as
pretty as they did on the first day,
but they don't smell nearly as nice.
You're lucky when you make an
effort to be fresh in every aspect
of your presentation, including
your appearance, the work you do
and what you talk about.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You've
planned out a certain goal several
times, and each time it didn't pan
out. It's not the goal but the method
of planning that is flawed. It's likely
that your plan doesn't accurately
account for the resources of your
current reality. Maybe a more creative
approach is needed. Consider talking
it out with a good friend.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You,
like most people, would prefer that
everyone, or at least a majority of
the people, like and approve of you.
However, this preference waxes
and wanes throughout the week.
For instance, midweek it will be
far more important to you that you
do what's right for you, even if it
means displeasing the group.

21). You have no problem pointing
out when someone's expectation is
unrealistic -- except when the person
in question is a child. Children make
you wonder if the world might be
a better place if we imposed a few
more unrealistic expectations on it.
It's one way to come up with a better
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19).
Ever wonder why people seem to
expect more from you than they do
from the others? Every time you
make a miracle happen, you set the
bar higher for the next time. It's
something to think about as you
wave your magic wand over (i.e., put
your blood, sweat and tears into) this
week's projects.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Some
find it odd that you are better able to
accept criticism than praise. They do
not yet understand how complicated
you can be, and the puzzle has them
fascinated. You'll get more practice
with compliments this week, so try
to become more comfortable with and
accepting of the glowing aspects of
who you are.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20).
Though rainbow chasing can be a
lovely pastime, don't chase those
that promise effortless, fast results
for the low, low price of (insert
high, high price). Also dangerous:
rainbows that involve an ongoing
financial obligation. Bottom line:
You shouldn't have to shell out much
money to follow your dreams.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). You're
self-assured until a certain someone
comes around, and you become
tongue tied and childlike. Perhaps
you see this person as an unfriendly
authority figure. Hang in there.
Something will happen midweek
to change this perception and get
you back to your usual high level of
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You
will grow in power as you change
self-defeating behaviors. Of course,

you first have to recognize which
behaviors fit the bill. For instance,
you may be ignoring instruction
or half-listening when your full
attention is required. You'll make
an exciting leap forward once you
identify the problem and nip it in the
GEMINI (11.ny 21-June 21). Most
people are reluctant to give honest
feedback, but not you. You have a way
of being truthful and charming at the
same time. So when you communicate,
the truth does not, in fact, "hurt," as
the saying suggests. It heals. You'll
give the gift of constructive criticism,
and you'll change someone's life for
the better.
This Week's Birthdays: In many
respects, you are fearless and will
take risks others wouldn't dare touch.
Because of this, you enjoy a reward
that only goes to an elite few. In
July, you will finally forgive someone
for the past and instantly gain new
vitality and excitement for life. You
give your best to a professional
endeavor in August. A coincidence
leads you to meet a special someone
in September. Your environment
reflects the effort you put into
family and personal development in

& Council Quotes

"I just wanted to give this to Jim. It is a replica of the last snipe
sign that was in Gulfport," -Margarete Tober, who recognized a group
of people who called the numbers on illegal signs and told the people who
answered the phone that the signs were illegal.
You can believe what you read in here or you can come down and
see it and smell it like we do," -Al Davis, about a recent Gabber article
quoting the Southwest Florida Water Management District about the
progress of work in Clam Bayou

"When the sale ends, get it off the street. The problem is, how do we
get it off the street? It may not be for sale, but it's left in the front
yard, which turns it into a code enforcement issue," -City manager
Jim O'Reilly, about post-yard sale debris left in front yards, not at the
"You can be more restrictive if you so choose. The statute allows
drivers 14 and older; we've put in that (you must have) a driver's
license," -City attorney Andy Salzman, about the proposed golf cart
"I'm wondering how many members of this council have ap-
proached, called anybody who has similar ordinances? I think it
would be beneficial before the final vote... to find out how it's work-
ing in other places," -Cindy Davis, about the state golf cart ordinance.

"I have previously voiced support for the golf cart ordinance...
however, I'm not real sure what we're talking about... The issues
that were raised the first time around...the term 'street-legal'
sticks in my mind as something that sticks in my mind as a rea-
sonable thing to do... I don't want to see the city open itself up to
something that is impossible to enforce...If you resolve street legal,
I'm for it. If it's not street legal, I'm not," -Al Davis, who pressed the
city to talk about the difference between street-legal vehicles and golf
"I don't believe the golf cart is going to be as popular as the mus-
tang," Mayor Mike Yakes, about the proposed golf cart ordinance.
"Is there a way we could collapse old, new and council reports into
one?" -Vice Mayor David Hastings. City attorney Andy Salzman said yes.

"I still think there's room for improvement and I would like to
workshop code enforcement," -Vice Mayor David Hastings, who took
two outings with different groups to look at litter and outdoor code issues
in Gulfport.
"Each day I live in Gulfport I am part of the positive It's difficult
to sustain the clamor of the negative. My message is 'Go forward
and conquer my Gulfport friends and colleagues and just ignore
the barnacles,"-Lori Rosso, Chamber of Commerce President, to

a 0omet ia' on my mind
ab By Bill Northrop

Why the Economy
If you're looking for someone to
blame for the drawn out recession
(often more accurately called a
Depression) that we're experiencing,
a good read is a book called, "Reckless
Endangerment". I write, "good
read", with reservations. Frankly,
it's difficult to continue reading a
book when you know that it ends in
financial disaster that could have
been prevented.
The book is written by Gretchen
Morgenson and Joshua Rosner, the
former a columnist and business
writer for The New York Times. They
target two government sponsored
enterprises (GSE), the Federal
National Mortgage Association
(Fannie Mae) and the Federal Home
Mortgage Corporation ( Freddie
Mac). Both were set up to make it
easier for lower and middle income
families to own their homes. Fannie
Mae was established in 1938.
It's a tale of good intentions gone
bad aided by greedy and corrupt and
inept politicians, investment bankers,
bankers and businessmen. It's not a
tale of incompetent and mindless
bureaucrats handing out favors. In
fact, the bureaucratic operatives

are the ones constantly giving the
warning only to be threatened and
warned off by the so-called elite
It's a tale of the perfect storm:
ideology, greed, corruption and power
coming together to bring, nearly to
its knees, the world's wealthiest and
most powerful nation. It is not a story
of the failure OF regulations, but
the failure TO regulate compounded
by a deliberate lowering of lending
As the "everyone gets a home game"
became more and more profitable,
financially and politically, forces
colluded to reduce the amount
of money financial institutions,
including Fannie and Freddie, had to
put aside to cover bad loans, defaults
and so forth. Simultaneously, they
also reduced the standards for
approving loans.
Fannie Mae bought up almost all
the loans that banks and mortgage
brokers could scarf up. Their
executives got bonuses based on
volume. Everyone got a home. All the
risk was dissipated so no one (except
the homeowner and taxpayer) was at
risk. Everyone got rich. Home prices
shot up bringing more people into
the market. Homeowners borrowed
against their equity, buyers

speculated on multiple homes. And,
as we know now, it was a bubble with
nothing but air in the balloon.
The losses to individuals were
(and still are) huge. The poor, put
into homes they couldn't afford, got
poorer. Those just incidentally in
the market got smashed. Taxpayers
will, in the long run, be on the hook
for as much as $1,000,000,000,000
and that's just for Fannie Mae and
Freddie. Another trillion was spent
rescuing banks and investment
houses and car companies.
Everyone got poorer except those in
charge. Politicians,likeBarneyFrank,
a long time supporter of Fannie,
survived. Brilliant (particularly in
his own mind) Alan Greenspan, head
of the federal reserve bank, who
knew what was happening but stood
aside, retained his reputation. Other
players moved on into the Obama
administration - Larry Summers,
for instance. Economic gurus whom
we seem to blindly follow continue in
positions of power and influence. The
book provides the names.
Politically, there is plenty of blame,
too. As noted, these programs to
spur more home ownership go back
several decades. It was a good cause
corrupted gradually by excessive
political zeal and then pure greed.
The administration of George H. W.
Bush helped it along. The Clinton
administration gave the first big
boost. The Republican legislature in
the latter part of the 1990s saw the
problem, but backed off. The G. W.
Bush administration took a shot at
Fannie and Freddie, but didn't push
hard enough. Politically, you don't
take away free rides from the voters.
It was, in one perspective, the closest
to a socialized (but quasi-government
driven) housing program we've had.
It was unsustainable and it certainly
hasn't been free except for those who
were responsible for it.

Re: Bill Northrop's

Dear Editor: David Brooks,
author, columnist and political
commentator, recently noted that
every second spent talking about
Sarah Palin is a second we will never
get back. Yes, the media attention is
overwhelming and ridiculous.

Palin is an utter waste of time,
but I suspect the media attention
(including Northrop's) is fed by the
public's fascination, not the other
way around. It isn't the lack of
"fairness, wisdom or ethics" on the
part of the media that worries me.
It's Pali's total lack of those
characteristics that is truly scary.

# Here's H(

Building a
Decorative Arbor
Dear Pat: I would like to build a
decorative arbor at my back door and
plant flowering climbing vines around
it. How large should the posts be and
what is the best way to construct the
sides and the arch? -- Joan C.
Dear Joan: Building an arbor
properly can be a fairly complicated
project requiring some power tools. If
you want to make it decorative and
appear professionally made, plan on
using a router to prepare the slots for
the sides and lattice.
Unless you are very skilled with
woodworking, you should hire a

Repair & Fix
carpenter or a millworker to make
the top arch for you. It can be quite
complicated to make it properly so
it has enough strength and has a
uniform curve. If you try it yourself,
you will probably spend more on extra
lumber for all the trials and mistakes
than if you had it professionally
Determining the size of the arbor
is your first and most important step
in building one. If the proportions are
off, it will have a strange appearance.
It is probably wise to measure several
arbors in your neighborhood and
make yours to the same height and
width ratios.

arbor, the height of the arch will be
half of its width. It must also clear
the door when it is opened. The type
and thickness of the foliage and
stems of the plants you select must
also be considered when determining
the door clearance.
Make the side framing using 4-by-4-
inch posts with 2-by-4 rails. Using a
router, make mortise and tenonjoints
for the most strength and rigidity.
Assemble them with waterproof wood
glue and galvanized decking screws.
Countersink the screw holes for a
professional appearance. The screw
heads can be covered with wood putty
when the arbor is completed.
Next, make the lattice panels
that will be inserted into the side
framing. Use 1-by-2 lumber or rip
2-by-4s down to any size you prefer to
make the channels. There are many
attractive designs of lattice to use,
but a woven rectangular (vertical/
horizontal) pattern is probably the
easiest to make.
Using the router again, rout dados
(slots) into the length of the channels.
Make the dados somewhat wider
than the lattice materials. Nail the
channels in the side frame. Carefully
slide the lattice pieces into the dados
until the side panels are completed
filled with your pattern.
Adding a floor to the arbor will make
it nicer to step through into your back
door, and it will add rigidity to the
entire arbor. Frame the floor with
pressure-treated 2-by-4s attached
to the 4-by-4 posts. When the frame
is complete, use standard decking
lumber to lay the floor. Leave enough
of the 4-by-4 posts extending down
to reach below the frost line for your
Dig postholes and fill the bottom
with a few inches of gravel. Place
the arbor in the holes, level it and
fill the holes with concrete. Once
the concrete is set and everything is
complete, take careful measurements
and have the top arch made. When
you receive it from the carpenter, it
should fit perfectly.
Tools and materials required:
carpenter's level, posthole digger,
tape measure, chalk line, router, table
saw, hand saw, bucket, hammer,
various finishing (painting) tools,
nails, cement mixture, pressure-
treated posts and miscellaneous

By Cathy Salustri
City of Gulfport: Bonds
Q: Can Gulfport sell bonds to generate income? Why aren't we?
A: Because typically a city sells bonds to finance capital projects (one
time expenses) rather than ongoing expenses.
"If the city sold bonds, it would have to pay a rate for the use of the
money," city manager Jim O'Reilly says. "Basically, you're mortgaging the
project, so you pay so much interest onit over the course of the time."
Currently, Mr. O'Reilly says, the city is debt-free, and if the city sold
bonds, it would have debt.
"A bond is a debt," he says.

Safety Tips
Plan in advance your evacuation
and safety measures. When you first
see lightning or hear thunder, ac-
tivate your emergency plan. Now is
the time to go to a building or a vehi-
cle. Lightning often precedes rain, so
don't wait for the rain to begin before
suspending activities.
If outdoors avoid water, high ground
and open spaces. Avoid all metal ob-
jects including electric wires, fences,
machinery, etc. Unsafe places include
underneath canopies, small picnic or
rain shelters or near tress. Where
possible, find shelter in a substantial
building or in a fully enclosed metal
vehicles such as a car, truck or van
with the windows completely shut.
If lightning is striking nearby when
you are outside, you should crouch
down, put feet together, and place
hands over ears to minimize hearing
damage from thunder. Also, avoid
proximity (minimum of 15 ft.) to oth-
er people.
If indoors avoid water. Stay away
from doors and windows. Do not use
the telephone. Take off head sets.
Turn off, unplug and stay away from
appliances, computers, power tools
and TV sets. Lightning may strike
exterior electric and phone lines, in-
ducing shocks to inside equipment.
Suspend activities for 30 minutes
after the last observed lightning or
Injured persons do not carry an

Update on Best of the Road Contest
GULFPORT- Gulfport, Florida is one of six small-town finalists from across the
countryin the first ever R.i n InI 1 N. il1 USA Today "Best of the Road" competition
in the "Best for Food" category. To celebrate Gulfport's ranking as a finalist and
to prepare for an upcoming "Road Rally" visit in which the town will be judged,
15 participating Gulfport restaurants have crafted a special "Best of the Road
Sampler Plate." Each plate will offer taste-sized samples of that restaurant's
best or signature dishes. Most plates will be priced in the range of $10 to $15.
Plates at each of the 15 locations will be offered beginning Thursday, June 23rd
and will remain on menus at least through Saturday, July 23rd.
Gulfport restaurants offering their own "Best of the Road Sampler Plate"
include: Backfin Blue Caf6, Habana Caf6, Isabelle's at Peninsula Inn & Spa,
Island Flavors and 'Tings, La Cote Basque, Winehouse, (I l.iil.l's Bar and
Grille, Peg's Cantina & Brewpub, Neptune Grill, Pia's Trattoria, Smokin'
J's BBQ, Stella's Deli, T & Me Tea Co., Tangelo's Grille, Village Pub and
Small towns were nominated in an online public forum beginning in May, with
open voting for towns in the "Best for Food" and four other categories: 1NI.-
Beautiful," 1 I.-1 Patriotic," "Friendliest," and 1NI.- Fun." Gulfport received
the highest number of votes in its "Best for Food" category during public voting.
Other small town "Best for Food" finalists are: Addison, WV; Burnsville, MN;
Lafayette, LA; Costa Mesa and Visalia, CA.
The "Road Rally" portion of the competition kicks off with an event on June
23rd in New York City. Online public voting was also a factor in selecting the
five two-person teams which will participate in the Rally. At the June 23rd
event, teams will be notified which category they will be assigned to judge in the
competition. Teams will have the discretion to determine their own routes and
itineraries. Organizers for Gulfport's "Best for Food" host committee determined
the sample plates would be a good idea to have in place on local menus prior to
the team's arrival. After it is notified of an arrival date for the Rally team, the
host committee plans a public event to welcome the team to the City, as well as
a festive "restaurant stroll" in which the team and the public will be invited to
The Road Rally continues across the country as teams visit their assigned
small towns and observe and judge each. Teams are asked to blog, tweet and
otherwise document their experiences as they travel. A final ceremony in Los
Angeles will welcome teams on July 15th, at which time they will announce
their own choices for best small towns in each category.

Host Families Needed
for Exchange Students
Foreign high school students are
scheduled to arrive soon for academic

English-speaking, have their own
spending money, carry accident and
health insurance, and want to share
their cultural experiences with
their new American families. P.I.E.
currently has programs to match
almost every family's needs, ranging
in length from one semester to a full
academic year, where the students

P.I.E. area representatives match
students with host families byfinding
common interests and lifestyles
through an in-home meeting.
Prospective host families are able
to review student applications and
select the perfect match. As there
are no "typical" host families, P.I.E.
can fit a student into just about
any situation, whether it is a single
parent, a childless couple, a retired
couple or a large family.
Families who host for P.I.E. are
also eligible to claim a monthly
charitable contribution deduction
on their itemized tax returns for
each month they host a sponsored

feet in length and 3 feet in height; piles must be loose - no bags or containers as this material is recycled into mulch.
Leaves must be bagged and called in for a pickup.
Larger piles will not be picked up on Wednesday and need to called-in for a 'special' billable pickup. Larger loads,
including yard waste, shall be based on size and type of equipment required to load and haul. Please contact Public
Works at 893-1089 to schedule a special pickup.
When an owner/occupant does not notify Public Works of a special pickup item(s) they can be picked up and billed as
an additional charge.
Residents are limited to a maximum of three 32-gallon trash containers or 30-gallon trash bags for garbage collection
and not to exceed 50 Ibs. (unless on an automated residential route).

All residents are required by City Ordinance to help keep their right of ways and alleys neat and orderly. The most
important portion of the City Code that applies is as follows:
Sec. 12-2 "Specific nuisances: states:
"The maintaining, using, placing, depositing, leaving, permitting, allowing or causing any of the following items,
conditions or things to exist in, on, over or under any public or private property shall constitute a nuisance; provided
however that this enumeration shall not be construed to exclude the identification of other nuisances not specifically
identified herein:
a) Any weeds, grasses or other vegetation of a height exceeding twelve (12) inches, including without limitation, broom
grass, jimpson, burdock, ragweed or sandspur and not including trees, flowers and ornamental bushes or plants;
b) Any trash, litter, debris, garbage, bottles, paper, plastic, metal, cans, rags, offal, bricks, concrete, lumber, building
materials, dead or decaying trees, plants, fruits, vegetables, or animals of any kind.
c) Any condition which provides, or could provide, harborage for rats, mice, snakes, insects or other vermin ..."
Not keeping the portion of the right of way and alley fronting your property may result in a visit from the Code
Enforcement Officer, and may result in significant fines if deficiencies are not corrected.

Safeguard Your
Dogs Against Heat
Hot weather is often deadly for
dogs who can succumb to heatstroke
in just 15 minutes and suffer brain
damage as a result. Dogs who are left
in parked cars are especially suscep-
Symptoms of heatstroke include
restlessness, excessive thirst, heavy
panting, lethargy, lack of appetite,
dark tongue, vomiting and lack of co-

ordination. If you see a dog showing
any of these symptoms, get him or
her into the shade immediately and
call a veterinarian. Lower the dog's
body temperature by providing water
to drink, applying a cold towel to the
head and chest, or immersing the dog
in tepid (not cold) water.
PETA (People for the Ethical Treat-
ment of Animals) makes the follow-
ing suggestions for safeguarding ani-

Don't carry your dog in the bed of
a pickup truck. While this practice
is always dangerous, heat brings the
added danger that dogs' feet might
be burned on hot metal.
Don't take your dog jogging, except
on cool mornings or evenings. Rest
often, and take plenty of water.
Trim heavy-coated dogs' fur, but
leave an inch of fur for protection
against insects and sunburn.
Keep dogs inside. If they absolutely
must stay outside, at least try not to
keep them outside during the hot-
test part of the day. Provide all-day
shade, drinking water in a heavy
bowl and a kiddie pool.

A Small Citrus Diversion: The Citrus Museum
A Small Citrus Diversion: The Citrus Museum

By Cathy Salustri

Perhaps everyone who ever came to
Florida as a tourist had a citrus experience,
whether it was a fresh-squeezed glass
of orange juice at a welcome center or
watching the citrus sorting assembly line
at a local grove.
Today, most of the citrus industry has
moved out of the country, although you can
still find fresh Florida oranges seasonally
and Florida orange juice all year long.
The remaining industry thrives, perhaps
the most heartily, in the Indian River area
of Florida, so it's fitting that if you're

BHard Candy,

o.rtP' f By Cathy Salustri

Save the Beach
I love a feel-good movie, a bag of
popcorn with fake butter and a
glass of wine.
The wine part is weird, I admit, but
blame my misguided youth: for a brief
while in college I fancied myself a film
student, which meant going to see a
lot of art films at the Enzian theatre,
where they served Gardenburgers
and cheap wine. I love Gardenburgers
but hate art films as much as I
cannot abide the patchouli-scented
men who make them, so I failed at
the whole film student endeavor,
traded my black cords in for some
sundresses, and happened upon this
cool beach community. With only
two "art houses" in the area I could
catch Tom Hanks films without ever
bumping up against a serious young
man in black jeans and wire-rimmed
glasses who wanted to show me his
claymation documentary. Despite
its artsy films I preferred the Beach
Theatre to others, because when it
did show popular movies instead
of brooding subtitled affairs, I'd get
popcorn and a cheap mini-bottle of
red wine and pretend I was in college
again, only this time I could watch a
movie I actually enjoyed.
But then something changed: movies
started to suck. Computer-generated
explosionsreplacedplot, andthe dark,
brooding characters replaced George
('I...i.n.- and Harrison Ford as
on-screen idols. When I realized that
Pulp Fiction wasn't a fluke, I took to
watching my Goonies and As Good
As It Gets DVDs.
The critics promised me Super 8 was
different. I walked over to the Beach
Theatre, which, asitfellonhardtimes,
started (much to my relief) pandering
to the lowest common denominator of
the moviegoing public: me. I bought
my beloved artery-clogging buttery
popcorn and requested my cheap
mini-bottle of wine.
Save the Beach Theatre, which was
out of wine. In fact, their cooler's

Gabber June 23 - June 29, 2011

kind of bare. The registers don't have
receipt tape. The seat arms wobble
in what I choose not to view as an
allegory for the entire place.
Save the Beach Theatre, owned by
St. Pete Beach resident Michael
France. He's made public his struggles
with the classic movie house, and he
says he's trying to convert the theatre
to a non-profit to keep it going. After
last night, I do not know if he can
hold on that long. Rumor has it he's
going through a wicked divorce, and
I can't imagine he's got a lot of energy
left in him to keep fighting this fight.
Save the Beach Theatre, a grand
palace once. To me, it still is. But its
glory days have passed and those of
us who still love it are probably more
in love with what it stands for than
what it has become.
Save the Beach Theatre, where you
can go see Super 8. I loved that, as the
critics promise, it's a Goonies-meets-
Stand-By-Me movie not outpaced by
special effects. It's set in the summer
of 1979, complete with My Sharona
on the soundtrack. Glittery, polished
effects and computer-generated
images would have ruined this
Save the Beach Theatre, because it
occurred to me as I watched the film
in my seen-better-days seat and tried
not to resent the flat Pepsi that, even
though the theatre may be fading,
it's a lot like Super 8: proof that the
simple things are grander than the

How do you save the Beach Theatre?
I have no clue. I do know this: people
always tell me that had they known
that this restaurant or this business
was having trouble, they would
have done their part and patronized
them more. Well, I'm telling you: the
Beach Theatre needs you. Until the
theatre gets its nonprofit status, you
can't donate money, but you can buy
a ticket. Don't want to see a movie
right today? I'm not suggesting you
see a movie: I'm suggesting you buy
a ticket.
Save the Beach Theatre because if
it goes under we'll have to head over
to the vacuum that is the Baywalk
Muvico. We will buy tickets online,
listen to a nifty sound system, and
probably order popcorn shrimp.
Save the Beach Theatre because
you can't buy tickets online, and no
one's accusing them of deafening you
with their massive sound system,
and other than the old-fashioned
fake butter on the popcorn, your
food choices are limited.
Save the Beach Theatre and keep
your money local when you buy your
cheap wine, popcorn buttered all the
way down to the bottom of the bag,
and tickets to a movie that reminds
us that you can find the amazing in
the unsophisticated.
Save the Beach Theatre, because,
like Super 8, some things, including
our communities, do better without
the glitz.

You & THE


By Robert J. Myers, Esq.
How Should my
Business be Set Up
(Part 2)
In our last article, we examined
together the general legal require-
ments of a sole proprietorship and
general partnership. In this article,
we will examine the general legal as-
pects of a limited partnership and a
Florida Corporation.
A. Limited Partnership
1. A limited partnership is
similar to a general partnership.
The primary difference is that some
partners are designated as "limited"
partners and, as such, are normally
not personally liable for the debts
and obligations of the partnership,
except to the extent of their contribu-
tion of capital to the partnership. A
limited partner is a passive investor,
and is prohibited from participating
actively in the management of the
partnership business. If a limited
partner participates in management,
she/he can lose the benefit of limited
liability and, instead, be treated as a
general partner for purposes of deter-
mining liability for partnership debts
and obligations.
2. A limited partnership
must have at least one general part-
ner and at least one limited partner.
The general partner of a limited
partnership has unlimited liability
for the partnership's debts and obli-
3. Like ageneralpartnership,
the income of a limited partnership is
passed through to the partners, and
reported on their individual income
tax returns.
4. Limited partnership is or-
ganized by filing a written certificate
of limited partnership in the Office of
the Secretary of State in Tallahassee,
Florida. Normally, the limited part-
ners are specified in the certificate of
limited partnership and in a sepa-
rate limited partnership agreement,
which may be more detailed than the
certificate of limited partnership. A
Florida limited partnership must file

an annual report and pay an annual
fee to the Florida Secretary of State,
and receive a certificate of authority
to conduct business as a limited part-
B. Corporation
1. A corporation is a separate
legal entity or "person" for purposes
of both state law and federal income
tax law. A corporation may be formed
by any number of individuals, other
corporations, or other entities.
2. The owners of a corpora-
tion are "shareholders." Normally,
business policies are dictated by a
board of directors, which is elected
by the shareholders. In Florida, a
corporation may have as few as one
director. Normally, directors are
elected annually, at an annual meet-
ing of shareholders.
3. Normally, the routine op-
erations of the corporation are man-
aged by the corporation's officers,
who are elected periodically by the
board of directors. In Florida, a cor-
poration must have a president, sec-
retary, and treasurer, and may have
one or more vice presidents or assis-
tant officers. One person may hold
two (2) or more offices.
4. Corporations are required
to hold annual meetings of share-
holders, at which the shareholders
may elect directors.
5. For federal income tax
purposes, a corporation is taxed as a
separate entity, and income and loss-
es of the corporation are not passed
to its shareholders, unless the corpo-
ration makes an "S election."
6. A corporation is formed
by filing a corporate charter, known
as "articles of incorporation," with
the office of the Secretary of State in
Tallahassee, Florida. The articles of
incorporation must contain various
information specified by statute, in-
cluding a unique corporate name, a
statement of the number of shares of
stock that the corporation is autho-
rized to issue, the par value (if any)
of the stock, the duration of the cor-
poration (if other than perpetual),
the general purposes for which the
corporation is initially authorized
(which may be stated to include in
the transaction of any or all lawful
business for which corporations may
be incorporated under Florida law),
the name of an initial registered of-
fice, the street address of an initial
registered office where service of pro-

cess can be made upon the corpora-
tion, the name of directors, and the
name and street address of the incor-
porator. The corporation is required
to file an annual report and pay an
annual fee to the Secretary of State
in order to maintain its standing as a
7. After the articles of incor-
poration are formed, the board of di-
rectors holds an initial organization-
al meeting, at which it elects officers,
adopts bylaws, and takes other orga-
nizational actions. The bylaws con-
sist of a written document specifying
the "rules" under which the corpora-
tion will be governed and managed.
8. Generally, ownership
interests in a corporation may be
transferred through a sale of stock,
although the transfer of stock may be
restricted by agreement or by law.

Mettler Family Vineyards
Cabernet * Red Zinfandel * Petit Sirah
With their roots in the wine industry dating back to the 1770s, it's no surprise
that the Mettler Family is still growing grapes today. After migrating to the U.S.
in the late 1800's, the Mettler family migrated to California, where they knew
that farming would bring success. The east side of the now famous Lodi region is
where the first Mettler vineyards were planted by George Mettler which began the
family's Lodi legacy. Carl Mettler, 4th generation farmer and George's grandson,
continued the family tradition and dedicated his life to farming his grandfather's
land. Carl and his wife raised their family amongst their Lodi vineyards. Carl
worked closely with nearby Universities and delegated several vineyard sites to
experimental varieties.
This experimentation helped to establish growing conditions for specific varieties
in the Lodi region. Carl's dedication in the vineyard awarded him a spot in the
Agricultural Hall of Fame. His integrity and love of the land is still being carried out
by one of his three sons, Larry Phillip, who is also the recipient of the Agricultural
Hall of Fame award and still farms the original Mettler Vineyards, along with his
wife Char and their three children, Kimberly, Kelli and Adam.

Financial Aid Myths
Don't believe these college financial
aid myths.
Myth #1: You can't afford college.
The truth is most college students
require some form of financial aid.
Don't ignore college because of its
"sticker price".
Myth #2: You have to be very poor,
very smart or very talented to qual-
ify for financial aid. Financial aid
comes in many forms such as the
federal government, the college or
university itself, a parent's employer
and others. When you take the time
to explore all the possibilities, you
will be surprised as to what services
you may receive.
Myth #3: You can get more scholar-
ships by paying someone to search
for you. Scholarship scams are ev-
erywhere. Beware of any group or
individual that guarantees a schol-
arship if you pay a fee. Check out or
for more information.
Myth #4: My child will pay for col-
lege, so my salary doesn't matter.
Most need-based financial aid is
based on parents' income and assets.
The FAFSA form, available online
at asks for infor-
mation similar to what you ned for
your income taxes. After submitting
FAFSA, you'll receive a report that
shows how much the government
expects you to pay.
Myth #5: You can wait until you get
accepted to a college before worrying
about financial aid. Most financial
aid is doled out on a first-come, first-
served basis. No one should wait to
get started. Looking for financial aid
probably isn't a teen's idea of a good
time, but it is better than graduat-
ing from college in debt.

A Greener View

By Jeff Rugg

Floodwaters Can
Greatly Affect
Flooding along the Mississippi and
other related rivers has been in the
news a lot lately. Not to discount the
toll taken on people and their homes,
but there's also a lot of damage done
to the landscape.
A single day's worth of flooding
can take many months to repair.
Flooding in the man-made landscape
mimics flooding in the natural
landscape, since land that is regularly
underwater has little vegetation and
almost no debris. Most plants do
not survive both being underwater
and dried out, so natural areas that
are often flooded are mud flats that
erode easily. Any litter that can float
will be washed up to the high water
mark, so the same areas don't have
mulch-like materials to prevent more
erosion from rains.
You will be able to tell the height of
the water by finding the line of what's
left of the landscape's bark mulch.
The only benefit to gravel mulch in
flower beds is probably that it doesn't
wash away easily. It will most likely
need to be washed because of the silt
that's present in the floodwaters. If
your mulch is gone, it is a good idea
to replace it soon to prevent lots of
weeds. Plus, the flower beds won't
dry out in the hot weather after the
Floodwaters do several things to
harm plants. Fast moving water
smashes plants and breaks or cracks
their stems and branches; they can't
straighten up. This is especially
true of plants without wooden
stems. Annual flowers and vegetable
crops may be ruined and need to be
replaced. Perennials can be propped
up for now and, of course, they will

Gabber June 23 - June 29, 20 1

grow new stems next year. Shrubs
and trees can be staked up until they
can regain their strength.
When the top of a plant is below
water, the plant has a hard time
maintaining its proper level of
moisture within the leaves and
stems. When it eventually dries out,
some leaves may die off. The longer
it was underwater, the worse it will
Mud that coats the leaves will
reduce the plant's ability to
photosynthesize. Although it adds
water to the landscape, wash off any
mud-coated leaves. Lawns may be
so thickly coated in mud that it will
be necessary to scrape it off. Small
mud-covered areas could probably
be replanted with new grass seed.
For most terrestrial plant roots to
survive, soil must have oxygen in
it. Waterlogged soil doesn't contain
enough available oxygen for many dry
land plants -- and for some big trees,
the damage may not be apparent for
several weeks or even months. Plants
native to stream banks and near
lake shores can take low levels of
oxygen in the soil around their roots.
Some maples are especially good at
tolerating periodic flooding.
Because we change the topography
of the land and many people plant
new trees in the wrong areas, many
plants have been placed where
flooding can harm them. The longer
the water is over the roots, the more
potential for damage. If water is
removed from the surface in only a
few days, there should be no harm to
most trees and shrubs. But a week or
two of water over the root area will
stress the plant, and the plant will
have to be watched for other signs of
problems for the next year or more.
Over a long period, excessive water
will kill non-flood tolerant plants
and leave only the hardy ones. New
plants in these low areas should be
flood tolerant.
As water is slowly released from
retention ponds into the receding
rivers and streams, water levels may
remain artificially high along their
shorelines. Trees around the edges

of retention ponds should have been
flood-tolerant to begin with, but I
have seen many instances where this
wasn't the case.
Most lawn grasses do not tolerate
being underwater for more than a
few days without showing signs of
dying. Often, grasses in low areas are
not particularly strong to begin with.
Because of high humidity, they often
have fungal disease problems. Many
subdivisions have used park spaces
and open areas as flood detention
areas. These areas are not intended
to stay continuously wet like a
retention area; they are supposed to
only detain water for several days.
If a soccer field or ball diamond
holds water for more than a couple of
days, and the grass was already weak
from the wear and tear of summer
activities, the grass may need to
be replaced. If played on while the
soil is wet, the ground will become
compacted. These compacted lawn
areas will need lots of remedial care
to come back to full strength. For the
safety of the participants, a good lawn
care program should be implemented
before play is resumed. Play should
be restricted while the soil is soggy.
These areas will need core aerations
in the fall. They may also require an
overseeding at that time. If possible,
mud should be washed off grass
leaves. The normal fertilization and
disease control programs should be
People with water gardens and
backyard ponds may have lost some
fish and plants as the surrounding
water flooded over the pond levels
and the inhabitants floated away.
Over all, there will not be a lot of long-
lasting effect on the landscape from
local flooding -- if it doesn't last more
than a few days and stays as a once
in a while occurrence. Unfortunately,
when some areas are flooded longer,
much of the landscape may need to
be replaced. Fungal disease problems
on plants growing in low lying areas
and shady areas can also become a
A simple rule of thumb to remember
is that if a plant does not normally
grow on the edge of a lake or in a
swamp, it will not do well being
flooded. The longer it is flooded,
the worse it will do. Slow growers
or already weak plants will have a
harder time recovering from a flood.

DEAR HEART OF JESUS- In the past I have
asked for favors. This time I ask this special
one and take it dear heart of Jesus and place
it within your own broken heart where your Fa-
ther sees. it. Then in his merciful eyes it will
become your favor, not mine. Amen. Say this
prayer for (3) days, promise publication and
favor will be granted. Never known to fail. In
Grateful thanks. I will never stop trusting in
God and his power. L.M.C.
- St. Michael, the Archangel, Defend Us In
Battle; Be Our Defense Against the Wicked-
ness and Snares of the Devil. May God Re-
buke Him We Humbly Pray; and Do You Oh
Prince of the Heavenly Host, By the Power
of God, Thrust Into Hell Satan and the Other
Evil Spirits Who Prowl About the World For the
Ruin of Souls. Amen. St. Michael, I Resort
to Your Protection and in My Faith, Offer This
Light Which Shall Burn Every Tuesday. Com-
fort Me in My Difficulties and While Lodging in
the House of Our Savior Intercede for Me and
My Family That We Will Be Able to Hold God
Close to Our Hearts and Be Provided for in All
of Our Necessities. I Beseech You, to Have
Infinite Pity in Regard to Favors I ask of You
(Name Them) So That I May Be Able To Over-
come All Difficulties as You Did the Dragons
at Your Feet. Our Father (Say 3 Times). Hail
Mary (Say 3 Times). Glory Be (Say 3 Times).
This Prayer is to be Said 9 Tuesdays, in Suc-
cession and Each Tuesday a Candle Shal
Be Lighted and a Copy of This Prayer Lft in
the Church to Help Another Soul in Distress
and Support the Devotion to St. Michael. This
Miraculous Saint Grants Everything, No Mat-
ter How Difficult, Before the Termination of 9
Tuesday. G.F.

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