Best of the Road Team in Gulfport
---.mo By Melissa Lattman
" Technical Events Specialist Gail Biron sang "Welcome
to Gulfport" a song she wrote July 3 to welcome the
Rand McNally Best of the Road Rally team, Jim and
Bonnie Parr, to town.
People wearing hats made out of maps gathered
on the spacious front porch of the Peninsula
Inn. The Sunday afternoon reception was an
opportunity to meet Bonnie and Jim Parr. "The
Fun Finders" are the team visiting town as a
part of the Best of the Road Rally sponsored by
Rand McNally and USA Today.
The town is one of six finalists in the Best Town
S for Food category. The Parrs left New York
June 23 and must get to Los Angeles by July
14. Gulfport is the third of the six towns they
are visiting. All the towns in the contest have
S populations of less than 150,000 and Gulfport
Shas the second smallest population in the food
category.

Trash Tours
By Cathy Salustri
In light of recent trash, litter, and code
complaints voiced to Gabber staff in person and
on the newspaper's Facebook page and web site,
I opted to take a "trash tour" of my own over
Gulfport's roads and down her alleys.
While Keep Pinellas Beautiful took five
Gulfport residents and one city employee on
a 27-mile "community appearance survey" on
June 15, a small group of residents offer a back-
alley tour of their own. This tour takes people
down alleys and looks not just at litter but also
code violations. This is not what I did. I drove
randomly down some city streets; resident and
community activist Doug Hudson, who does give
the informal back alley tour, suggested certain
areas of the city for parts of my tour.
Doug Hudson and Gulfport Chief of Police
Robert Vincent asked to ride along with me, and
on last Friday afternoon the three of us set out to
see the city.
Parts of the tour were completely random - me
driving up and down rows of houses - while other
parts were areas Doug knew to have litter and
codes issues. Rather than provide you with

Best of the Road,
from front page
Although the Parrs live in
St. Petersburg they have only been to
Gulfport a few times.
"(Being in Gulfport) is a new
experience and we are glad it's a new
experience. It makes it more fair,"
Bonnie said
What were their initial impressions
of Gulfport?
"People are very enthused. Everyone
is not only enthused about the contest
but about the town. You get the feel
this is a city of art as well," Jim said.
What are some of the new
experiences in Gulfport as compared
to other towns?
"Getting to blow glass was a new
experience... (andhaving) the sampler
plates at each of the restaurants is a
real novel idea," Bonnie said.
Jim liked the history of the town
and the unique stores.
"One store offered me a glass of
wine. I could hang out while my wife
shopped. That is a classic idea," Jim
said.
The Parrs started their retirement in
1996 with a cross-country trip. They
love traveling together and decided
to enter the contest to become a road
rally team.
"We love to travel and when we
read the contest rules. It looked like
something we could do... we're having
a ball. It's been an experience we'll
never forget," Bonnie said.

Give a little, Get a lot
The Adults Mentoring Children
program needs caring volunteers
age 30 and over to be mentors for
children throughout the county.
Volunteers are matched with
children between the ages of 3 and
15 who need a caring adult to spend
time with them, be a positive role
model, and let them know that they
are special. The children are living
with a single parent who is working
and going to school and working,
living with a relative or in foster
care.
No experience is necessary.
Background screening is required
for all volunteers, and they must
drive. There is never a cost, and
social activities and ongoing support
are provided by the staff. Spend 2 to
4 hours a week with a child doing
simple activities such as reading,
fishing, baking, gardening, doing a
craft, or visiting a park.
For more information, please call
Bev at 727-479-1841.

Letters
Enough is Enough
Dear Editor: This is in regard to the
article "Gulfport Resident Complains
to State about Art Cruise" published
in the June 30, 2011 edition of the
Gabber.
Dear Ms. Stapella: Are you that
unhappy as a person that you feel
compelled to take everyone else's
happiness away as well? Your
ratings and ravings are starting to
fall on deaf ears because no one cares
anymore.


It's time you started looking in the
mirror at yourself and ask the big
question: "When will I begin to bring
joy to others around me?" ... and in so
doing, my dear heart, you will bring
joy to yourself and many blessings
will come to you as a result.
Your negative behavior is unwanted,
immature and should be put away for
good. If you hate this town so much,
then simply move!
Mary O'Malley

Trash, from front page

a blow-by-blow description of what
we saw, we've created a photo album
on the Gabber's web site, complete
with photos.
After my tour, I spoke with
Bruce Earling, the city's lone code
enforcement officer, about codes
issues. I spoke with public works
director Don Sopak about trash issues
before the tour.
Here's what the city told me:
*70% of the city's properties are
rentals, according to Mr. Sopak, which
can make some issues a challenge.
The tenant may see something as
the landlord's responsibility, while
the landlord may see it as a tenant-
related issue.
*On the day we went out, the city
had 21 calls in for special pickups.
We saw more than 21 piles of trash.
*The city's code enforcement
department consists of one person,
Bruce Earling. He job includes
routine patrols of the city when
not answering complaints, talking
to residents to help them comply
with local codes, write letters, issue
citations and write up reports. He
has no clerical help, although the city
has discussed automating the phone
system and moving the woman who
answers the phones to his office to
help part-time.
*Asking police officers to perform
code enforcement duties could,
according to Chief Vincent, jeopardize
law enforcement efforts. For example,
if an officer approached a house to
talk to a resident about a broken
window and found drugs inside, the
court might not accept the evidence
because of how the officer gained
access to the home.
What did we see? Lots of little
things, like cars parked in the right-
of-way and grass that could use a
trim. We also saw big things, like
piles of mattresses stacked almost
out of sight behind a fence, mounds of
mulch and dirt out by the road - with
greenery growing in the piles, an
indication of how long the pile had sat
there. Likewise, we saw brush piles
that had sat out long enough for the
brush to turn brown. We saw lots and
lots of litter. Ward four had several
alleys that were lined with piles of
trash and litter. We saw houses with
windows missing, holes in the side of


the homes, and boarded up windows
and doors.
We saw much more, but we'll let you
look at the photos yourself.
After taking the Keep Pinellas
Beautiful tour, vice mayor David
Hastings went on a sidecar tour of
the alleys with Al and Cindy Davis.
Although during the Keep Pinellas
Beautiful tour the vice mayor scored
the city streets as 1.52 on a scale of
one to four (one for the least litter
and four for the most), he said what
he saw along some of Gulfport's alleys
showed a different side of his city.
"It looks like a Hollywood set - the
front of the house is really nice and
neat, and then you go around back
and say, 'Is this the same house?' It
was really disappointing," he said.
As a result he has asked city council
to workshop ordinances pertaining to
code enforcement and examine "the
whole issue of what it is that Bruce
does throughout the city. It's a good
time for us to look at the codes and
see what can be done."
Here's what the city's elected ward
representatives said about the trash
and litter issue:
*Jennifer Salmon said she believes
that putting trash out in alleys too
early contributes to the problem. She
said she used to think that "maybe
this is an example where complaints
make sense," but now she thinks a
straightforward code enforcement
policy that is enforced uniformly
would work better "because some
people might think they're being
harassed.
She also said that, while she knows
good landlords exist and she knows
some personally, "there are probably
bad ones are relying on our code
enforcement [and] our police to keep
our properties safe."
Councilwoman Salmon also added
this:
"We still have a lot of older
homeowners who are doing a good job
of keeping up their homes, but some
of the homes [mentioned by residents
in the past] were older homeowners,
and you have to be really thoughtful
of older homeowners. You have to
come up with other ways of dealing
with it."
In all, she said, she favors "what's
good for the environment" and things
that will "keep up property values."
*Sam Henderson told us he
understands the group that "wants


to go further in code enforcement.
I'm willing to look at that, because
I like to live in a community where
the yards are kept nice and there's no
trash around."
However, he said, he thinks the city
will have a tough time drawing a
harder line.
"I don't think you can legislate
character," he said, saying that at
the core of making an area look nice
is respect for one's home and one's
neighbors.
Councilman Henderson admits that
litter is a problem but worries that
harsher code enforcement would also
bring problems.
"I think we get a lot more litter over
here. I don't think the codes are faulty,
because the other side of that, which
I don't think we have the ability to
do, is hard code enforcement. That's
several people all day driving around
doing that...We'd be accused in the
first five days of trying to generate
revenue," he said.
He agreed with Councilwoman
Salmon that people setting out their
trash too early contributes to the
problem, but he also said that he
feels part of the solution lies with the
residents, not just the city.
"I feel like there's a great deal
of personal responsibility. I think
if someone's violating code, they
have the obligation [to call code
enforcement]. If it's impacting their
quality of life enough, then yes, they
should call. I wish more people took
part in it, but I don't want to punish
everybody because of the lowest
common denominator," he said.
He also sees a lot of vacant
properties that the city must try and
maintain by cutting grass and other
maintenance.
"I don't think it's the taxpayer's
responsibility to pay for services for a
delinquent property owner," he says
of these properties. He adds that his
ward seems hit hard by the economy.
"It's hard for this ward; we have a
ton of renters and a ton of landlords
that didn't intend to be landlords," he
said.
He also added that he doesn't feel
the situation has changed in his
ward, only that citizens had brought
an existing state of affairs to light.
"Sadly enough, we have a lot of
people who don't take personal
responsibility," he said
*Barbara Banno wants the city to "do
Gabber July 7-July 13, 2011






a better job on educating our citizens
on the sanitation and trash process
and schedule." She also wants the
city to enforce any code violations,
and, she said.
"As citizens we all need to be
accountable for keeping our city clean.
I want people to take responsibility
and care about the city that we
live in. The only way to keep them
accountable is by code enforcement,"
she added.
*David Hastings, as mentioned,
wants the city to bring the issues to
workshop. Hastings met with Bruce
and the city manager to discuss the
situation. He also made a suggestion:
A special magistrate to deal with
code enforcement cases. The city will
discuss these issues at an upcoming
workshop.
"We may get in there and I may
be the only one who thinks we have
a problem," he added, but, "if this is
what residents want, I'm all for it."

toitloroscope Guide


By Holiday Mathis
ARIES (March 21-April 19). If you
don't know how to communicate
with others, working and/or creating
with them will be a joyless process.
So you commit to learning about the
various people you'll deal with this
week. It will take a conscious effort,
and probably more time than you
anticipated, to establish a rapport,
but you'll get there.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You
enjoy a superb reputation for doing
what you do well, and yet you don't
always accept the praise you're given.
Stop trying to deflect attention or
spread around the credit that rightly
belongs to you. Show your confidence
now, or you'll likely receive fewer
opportunities and less money than
you deserve.
GEMINI (Il.,y 21-June 21). Being
in love with another person does
not resolve all problems and create
earthly nirvana. Maybe there is
some way that it could, but given
the current complexities of life, that
way hasn't presented itself yet. This
week you'll be accepting the reality of
a relationship and working out a few
practical solutions.
CANCER (June 22-July 22).
Group dynamics are tricky. Fun and
productivity sometimes go hand-
in-hand, but not always. You could
laugh and have a good time while
nothing gets done. Or you could be
overly serious and amazingly prolific.
Your best bet is to make sure you and
the others have a common goal and
everyone keeps it in mind.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You'll
experience many emotions this week.
Feelings of jealousy or envy could
arise. These states of mind are caused
by low self-esteem, which occurs from
time to time in any normal human
being. If you feel a little insecure,
do something to help you get back to
your usual confident self-assurance.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Maybe
you need more help or just a different


perspective. It's time to concern
yourself with your own fun. When you
try too hard to make sure everyone
is happy, you rip yourself off. Plus,
you make it hard for others to relax,
because they feel their fun comes at
the expense of yours. It doesn't have
to.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You
spend so much of your time working
to keep everything going smoothly for
the people around you. Remember to
stop and ask yourself where you fit
into the picture. Check in to see how
you feel, and gauge your happiness
with all that's going on. Make sure
you're still excited about this life
you've built.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You'll
try what is new, and this makes you
creative. It may be scary for you to
approach the unknown and ask
questions, but you realize you have
to start somewhere. Sometimes you'll
be welcomed, and other times you'll
have to work harder for acceptance
and approval, but you'll always get it
in the end.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec.
21). You'll easily get in synch with
those around you. You physically
match the pacing and movements of
others, and they relax and open up
to you. You will learn as you listen
to stories and instruction. You'll also
bear witness to and be an important
part of some amazing teamwork.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19).
You like to have company, but not
all of the time. You prefer to be alone
for long stretches so that you can
concentrate totally on what you need
to accomplish. You'll have this luxury
more than usual this week. Your solo
work will be satisfying, as well as
enlightening and productive.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You
have many insights to impart this
week. Be careful not to interrupt
those around you who may be moving
at a much slower pace. If you are
patient enough to hear people out,


you'll acquire interesting knowledge.
And your opportunities will grow
with every new fact you learn.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You
have certain habits that are so much
a part of your everyday life that you
don't even think of them as behaviors
anymore. Rather, they are just what
you do when you are "doing you." But
you're changing this week, and you
could decide that a certain habit is
unnecessary or even destructive and
do away with it.
This Week's Birthdays: You'll
attract attention because of your
knowledge, your physical appearance
or just because you enjoy being in
the spotlight. It will feel great to
be recognized and applauded in the
next six weeks. A relationship grows
closer, and you'll have an adventure
with a loved one in August. September
brings a new chapter in your family
life. October brings a creative
breakthrough. Changes in the way
you handle your finances will allow
you to do something you've wanted to
do for a long time.

The State Speaks About
Gulfport ArtCruise
By Cathy Salustri
GULFPORT - Based on citizen
comment on last week's story about a
citizen complaint about the ArtCruise,
the Gabber contacted the Florida
Department of Environmental
Protection and questioned them
about their investigation of the
complaint.
Ana Gibbs, External Affairs
Manager, told us the following:
"Based on a compliant we received,
on June 23, 2011, a compliance
inspection was conducted on both
the Submerged Lands Lease, as well
as their Environmental Resource
Permit for the City of Gulfport
docking facility. It was found to be in
compliance with all lease and permit
conditions. The inspection included
snorkeling the area of concerns to
determine whether the cruise ship had
impacted any resources (seagrasses
or the bottom). An inspector took
depth measurements and found no
evidence of prop dredging."
In addition, the Gabber asked DEP
about the status of the complaint
from the same resident about local
kayak tour and rental outfit, Kayak
Nature Adventures.
"Based on the information provided
by a complainant (pictures were
provided), the kayak business was
not operating within the Submerged
Lands Lease area. During the site
inspection, the kayaks were not
present," Ms. Gibbs told the Gabber.
Finally, the Gabber asked if DEP

encouraged Gulfport to halt the
ArtCruise from the Casino. This is
what Ms. Gibbs said:
"DEP informed the City of Gulfport
of the conditions contained within
the city's Submerged Lands Lease.
Please contact the city for further
information regarding its decision
relating to the ArtCruise."
As stated in last week's article,
Gulfport city manager Jim O'Reilly
indicated he suggested a change of
venue to avoid any further potential
conflict.

Host Families Needed
for Exchange Students
Foreign high school students are
scheduled to arrive soon for academic
semester and year homestay
programs, and the sponsoring
organization needs a few more local
host families.
According to Pacific Intercultural
Exchange (P.I.E.) President, John
Doty, the students are all between the
ages of 15 and 18 years, are 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 attend local
public and private high schools.
P.I.E. area representatives match
students with host families by finding
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 student.
P.I.E. is a non-profit educational
organization that has sponsored
more than 25,000 students from 45
countries since its founding in 1975.
The organization is designated by
the United States Department of
State and is listed by the Council
on Standards for International
Educational Travel (CSIET),
certifying that the organization
complies with the standards set
forth in CSIET's Standards for
International Educational Travel
Programs.
Families interested in learning more
about student exchange or arranging
for a meeting with a community
representative may call P.I.E., toll-
free, at 1-866-546-1402.

By Cathy Salustri
City of Gulfport: Sewer Infliltration
Q: This question is for Public Works. Can you explain how you know
the city's sanitary sewer or storm water system has an infiltration problem
and how much it's costing the city? Also, how do you fix it?
A: Gulfport's public works director Don Sopak records rainfall, ground
water elevation and sewer flow pumped to the city of St. Petersburg every
day. His records show that when Gulfport gets what he calls "a large
amount of rainfall," Gulfport pumps more water into the St. Petersburg
sewage system than on dry days.
"When we have a higher water table it allows more ground water to enter
our pipes and system," he explains. "This excess water that infiltrates the
system is then added to our sanitary sewer flow. The cost to treat the sew-
age is based on our contract with St. Petersburg."
The city currently pays St. Petersburg $2.532 per million gallons.
The city combats these infiltration issues by cleaning and monitoring on
camera (televising) the system. This helps public works figure out which
repairs the system needs the most.
"Cleaning and televising provide the opportunity to prioritize and sched-
ule repairs needed based on the degree of defects in the lines," Mr. Sopak
says.

^ Somethikh' OH my mind
A h r By Bill Northrop BNorthrop@theGabber.com


A Matter of Seats
Having a chair as a town symbol
sounds kind of strange, but in
Canonsburg, Pa., a small town
(8,600) 18 miles south of Pittsburgh,
they're proud of it. Not that the town
actually chose a chair as its symbol
or that it's been adopted as the town
logo. It didn't and hasn't. It just
happened. And, anyway, it's only a
one-day symbol. July 4th.
That's when the chairs start
appearing on the sidewalks lining
the main street (actually, Pike
Street). I don't mean on July 4th. I
mean two weeks before July 4th.
There are plastic chairs, wooden
chairs, folding chairs, canvas folding
chairs, and chairs with stuffed
mannequins. They are tied together
with rope, with tape, with chains and
faux police ribbon. They are tied to
anything nearby, a parking meter, a
utility pole, a street sign.
It's a town getting ready for its
annual 4th of July parade which has
been held every year for 49 years.


0


Wikipedia says it's second only to
Philadelphia's parade. PolitiFact
hasn't checked that out, but it is a big
parade and lasts about two hours.
Celebrities, fire departments, school
marching bands, military units,
veterans groups, athletes, politicians,
community organizations march or
have floats. It's a big deal.
No one cares what its ranking
is. It's in Canonsburg and it is
the largest parade in Washington
County which has 208,000 people
and several communities larger than
Canonsburg. It is the largest parade
in the Pittsburgh area, but the parade
isn't the only thing, either. There are
sky divers, free fireworks, a free pool
party, music (polka included), and
celebrities as I mentioned. Some
say 50,000 show up for the parade.
Questionable, but again, no one
counts heads. It's the Canonsburg
parade.
Canonsburg is the home of Perry
Como (they have a singing statute
of him), Bobby Vinton, and the Four

Coins ("Shangri-La"). Bobby Vinton
was last year's parade marshal and
he did a little show the night before.
Como's dead, but the Four Coins
who were popular in the 50s and
60s, regrouped a few years ago and
are still performing. The original
four, by the way. They were parade
marshals this year along with two
other contemporary groups.
Canonsburg's an old town laid
out in 1789 by Col.( probably self-
designated) John Canon who was
a miller. U.S. Vice President Aaron
Burr stopped by in the early 1800s,
trying to enlist a real colonel, George
Morgan, to join him in raising an
army against his own government.
Morgan refused, and Burr labeled
him a drunken fool. Burr later beat
the traitor rap as well as accusations
he murdered Alexander Hamilton.
Later, Canonsburg attracted
European immigrants to man the
coal mines and steel mills and
manufacturing plants that sprang
up in the region. A large influx of
Italians and Greeks resulted in
political rivalries that exist today
though a little less virulent than
in the past. Small manufacturing
still exists as does a thriving candy
manufacturing business founded by
Frank Sarris who recently passed,
but whose family still runs it. Bus
loads come in for the candy, by the
way.
The new Marcellus Shale (natural
gas) boom in the area, andit's location
along 1-79 make it a still hanging-
together community. That and its
residents' andleaders' determinations
to keep the community activities and
pride going.
That brings us back to the chairs.
Don't try stealing the chairs. I
don't recall a theft incident yet, but
chair theft would be punishable by
pummeling or death at the hands of
residents. Chairs are like temporary
castles as in " my home is my castle".
There are complaints, of course. The
chairs block the curb and the town
says the chairs are not authorized
and are therefore public property.
Don't think about it. Two miles of
chairs on both sides of Pike street
stay there.

Gulfport's Crime
Off-Beat
Gulfport Police had a busy week.
Here's a sampling of what officers
dealt with last week:
MAYBE HER PANTS WERE
STOLEN? Officers responding to a
call at the 3000 block of 54th Street
found Marianne Ward, naked from
the waist down, standing outside
yelling. She appeared to be drunk.
The police tried to assist her but
she was, according to reports, "not
cooperative." Police tried to take
her into protective custody, but she
"continued to be belligerent," officers
report. When Ms. Ward kicked both
officers and made several threats,
the police arrested her for battery on
a police officer, a third degree felony.
SQUATTERS RIGHTS? Police
opened a "problem oriented patrol"
(POP) operation for 5116 Pine Grove
Terrace. Officers report ongoing
problems with John Rook, William
Dorman, and Roger Campbell living
in a home with no water or electricity.
They claimed to have permission to
be there to fix the place up. All three
were issued citations for violation of
minimum housing standards.
GRAFFITI OR ART? Police
received three reports of criminal
mischief along the 5200 and 5100
blocks of 8th Avenue and in the
Beachway Mobile Home Park. Upon
investigation they found "spray
paint markings of a part of male
anatomy."
WINDOW SHOPPING. In the
early morning hours of June 27
officers received a call from a citizen
concerned about someone looking
in windows in the area of 57th
Street and Gulfport Boulevard.
Officers located and identified the















Gabber July 7 -July 13, 2011


suspect, explanation did not fit the
evidence or the statement of the
witness, so he was issued a notice to
appear for loitering and prowling, a
misdemeanor.
TEXTING AND DRIVING DON'T
MIX. Police responded to a report of
a single vehicle crash in the 2400
block of Beach Boulevard. Driver
Kylin Brady was looking at a text
message on her phone and didn't see
the telephone pole on the right of
way. She smashed into it. She wasn't


injured, but her car was inoperable
and had to be towed. She was also
cited.
GET PASSIONATE ABOUT
READING. Thomas Palumbo and
Donald Lewis (both in their late
fifties) were trespassed from the
Gulfport Library on June 29 after
getting into an altercation and
shouting match in the parking lot
after a disagreement during a heated
book club discussion.

You & THE


LAW "
By Robert J. Myers, Esq.
Wills
In the every day practice of law
at Akerson Law Offices, common
questions of law are asked by clients
of the firm. Afew of the most common
questions which are responded 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
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 need wills
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.
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.
Mr. Myers is the owner of Akerson
Law Offices which is located at 1135
Pasadena Avenue South, Suite 140,
St. Petersburg, Florida. The tele-
phone 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 spe-
cific question about the law, please
consult an attorney.

Marigolds, Melons and More
By Melissa Lattman
GULFPORT- Bright clumps
of orange marigolds planted
from seeds greet visitors to
David O'Brien's garden.
The Gabber checked in
with O'Brien to see how the
novice gardener's vegetable
garden was growing.
Tomatoes were ripening
on the vines next to leafy
cabbage. Cantaloupes,
watermelon and sweet
potatoes on lush green
vines spread out in three
separate square beds made
from an old mattress.
So far the garden has
yielded green peppers,
lettuce, broccoli, more than
20 tomatoes and one carrot.
"Nothing looks like the c
stuff you get in the store.
Everything is bumpy and
misshapen. You get it a
little closer to the source,"
O'Brien said.
O'Brien said the garden has David O'Brien poses for a photo by his tomato plants,
had other benefits as well. "I which he tried to protect from the sun with window
v screens. He planted marigolds to keep the bugs away
have lived in Gulfport since from his vegetables.
1976. Starting in March
(when he planted the garden) I have met more of my neighbors than the rest of
the time I have lived here, " he said.
O'Brien said he is learning about his yard. He planted the garden in a sunny
spot. He experimented with ways to keep the plants cooler including shading
the plants with old window screens.
"I am learning about screening. It gets too hot... I am learning about my yard.
I am thinking about maybe planting under the trees. Where I planted the
garden is the wrong spot for a summer garden," he said.
Right now O'Brien is waiting for the rest of the tomatoes to turn red. Then he
will pull out the vines. He is also planning his next garden beds, which he will
plant in mid-August around when the next Florida growing season starts. "I
am planning the next beds with concrete blocks as borders," he said.
The county and state extension offices offer many resources for growing in
Florida. Check out http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/vh021 for vegetable growing tips
from the University of Florida extension office. When looking at the planting
times chart-- Pinellas County is in the central growing zone of Florida.

Hard Candy.

.ft . aByCathy SuSastri


For Better and
For Worse
T he Universe has a sneaky
way of doing things. Believe
it or not, I'd already intended
to write a column about marriage
- well, mostly - when my friend
Amanda called yesterday and told
me her boyfriend proposed and she
accepted.
Amanda's one of the loveliest people
I know. (I'm not just saying that
because she makes this squash and
cheese pasta thing that's brought
better women than me to their knees.
Honest.) Everyone loves Amanda,
and while I don't believe marriage
can work for me, I am thrilled for her
and wish her all the happiness in the
world.
Nevertheless, at some point in their
union, there will come a time when
her husband - also a wonderful
human being, by the way - will
want to strangle her. That is not a

Gabber July 7-July 13, 2011


reflection on Amanda's character, or
his. It's more a statement about what
happens when two people spend a lot
of time together in close quarters.
Of course, he won't really want to
kill her; I'm exaggerating. It also
doesn't mean that they will have
stopped loving each other, or that
they want out of the marriage. But
making relationships work isn't
always pretty.
The best relationships have conflict.
So, in fact, do some pretty great cities.
That doesn't bother me - think it's
healthy. No, what I find disturbing
are the folks who insist, no matter
what, that everything is just ducky.
These people think that as long as you
focus only on the positive, everything
will work out in the end.
These people, too, would have you
think that the people who choose not
to ignore the bad bits and, in fact,
want to see them brought to light
and discussed and worked through,
are somehow bad people themselves.
They might even go so far as to
suggest those who complain don't love
their partner or their town and want
to undermine the whole thing. They
might say those who bring issues to
light are just plain wrong or looking
for trouble because everything is just
fine, dammit.
But here's the thing: pretty
relationships don't last. We all know
(or knew) a couple that never fought
or looked at each other sideways.
She never packed a bag and spent a
week at her mother's house; he never
stormed out in anger and headed to
the local bar. Their friends thought
they had the perfect marriage - until
he moved out one day, or she ran off
with a Grateful Dead tour.
It's the same with a city. We can go
along, pretending everything's fine,
throwing some mighty fine parties
and patting each other on the back,
but underneath it all, what's wrong
will still be wrong. The more we don't
talk about it, just like in a marriage,
the more it festers. On the outside,
everything is perfect - although
usually because people are petrified
to admit otherwise.


When one of those "perfect"
marriages where no one fights and
everyone's happy all the blessed
time finally reaches critical mass,
one partner finds out the other one's
actually been unhappy for a long time
but was afraid to speak out. By the
time they did, things had gotten too
big to fix, so they just walked away.
Why would someone be afraid to
speak out? Well, sometimes people
who have issues just don't want to
deal with confrontation. Other times,
people are scared that what they love
won't hold up to the questioning.
They may worry that if they start
to question, the pretty bits will fall
apart and there won't be anything
left underneath to hold it all together.
They fear that the relationship isn't
strong enough to stand up to real
conflict or trial.
That, my friends, is almost always a
mistake, because if the pretty things
are all that's holding something
together, it isn't being held together
at all. Even the Mona Lisa, without
a canvas, is just paint. There is no
doubt that every small town, be it
Gulfport or St. Pete Beach or Buffalo
Soapstone, has both types of folks -
the people who aren't afraid to belly
up to the bar and order a shot of "What
the hell were you thinking, buying
those flowery towels when we can't
afford groceries this week?" and the
"Why, honey, those decorative soaps
are lovely. We can eat Ramen for a
week; don't worry about the expense."
I am certain, too, we all know people
in either type of marriage.
I will tell you this: Amanda's
relationship will stand up to
questioning, of that I have no doubt.
I will also tell you this: so will your
city. I look across the bay and on
either side I see cities with problems,
but also with strong foundations.
Gulfport, St. Pete Beach, and every
little town across America is built on
the backs of people who loved their life
enough to fight for it, to remedy the
tough issues. The best relationships
are built on love, yes, but tears and
conflict, too.
I know everyone reading this loves
their city.
The question is, who among you is
strong enough to face the problems?

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.

NEVER FAILING PRAYER TO ST. MICHAEL

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).

ter How Difficult, Before the Termination of 9
Tuesday. G.F.

MAYTHE SACRED Heart of Jesus be adored,
glorified, loved, and preserved throughout the
world. Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, pray for us.
Blessed Mother, pray for us. St. Jude, worker
of miracles, pray for us. Say this prayer for ni-
net days, nine times a day. Then publish this
prayer. Thank You, Jesus.
