No. 2230 November 3 November 9, 2011 Gulfport Teen Council Addresses City LeadersThe Teens Present Their Ideas About Banning Smoking on Gulfports BeachBy Cathy Salustri When Gulfports teen council stepped forward to present their ideas on the citys proposed smoking ban, council and the residents reacted some with praise and others with criticism. Gulfport teen council members Nolan Slone, Laura Karbowski and Elizabeth Brown-Worthington spoke individually on behalf of the teen council. As discussed in the teen council meeting, Mr. Slone, on behalf of the teen council, suggested council ban smoking on the half of the beach closest to the recreation center and continue to allow smoking on the other half. has approached Gulfport city council. Although the teen council meets regularly it does not often meet with the city council as a whole. However, See Teen, page 36Its ofcial: No Smoking on Gulfport Beach, Sports Fields and Playgrounds After hearing an hour of comments from residents both for and against the proposed smoking ban, the ing on Gulfports beach, in its childrens play areas Councilmember Sam Henderson, who initially opposed the ban, said he liked the idea of not allowing smoking on playgrounds. Saying that you cant do it there is actually my favorite part of this, Councilman Henderson said of the ban on smoking in playgrounds and kids play areas. Although Gulfports teen council proposed making only half the beach nonsmoking (see related story) and many on council praised the teens for seeking compromise, council voted unanimously to pass the ban on the entire beach. The ban goes into effect immediately.Code Issues? Tell It to the Magistrate By the end of the month the city will start the process of hiring a special magistrate to handle code cases, although the process could take a couple months. Gulfport city council voted 4-1 to allow the city to hire a special magistrate. The magistrate will replace the citys current system, which makes use of the county court system for code violators. A special magistrate will serve as a judge and hold court. The magistrate will decide if someone violated the city ordinance and, if so, set a date by which If the property does not come into compliance as the magistrate requests, The city estimates such a magistrate would cost $8,400 (based on $150 an hour) and, if the city later determines the magistrate needs an assistant, a clerical assistant would cost $28,000.A Spooky Twist to Neighborly CarePhoto Courtesy Pam McGinnis Margaret Reilly, Pam McGinnis, Ann Calabrese, Betty Reith along with guests and Volunteers enjoy the Halloween fun at the Gulfport Senior Center Halloween Party, sponsored by Neighborly Care Network.

4 Gabber November 3 November 9, 2011 Gulfport Vision Last Thursday, Gulfport city council, top staff and department directors met in a day-long visioning session at city hall. The days events, moderated by the Florida Institute of Government out of the University of Central Florida, were the brainchild of freshman councilwoman Barbara Banno. I wanted it to help the city council members and staff work through a visioning plan and set goals for the city, councilwoman Banno said. I felt it was a good idea to bring in doesnt have any personal agendas. I wanted them to help us work as a team and really collaborate and prioritize what is best for the city. The session ran from 9 a.m. until about 4 p.m. last Thursday; it started with the moderator asking council how they would describe their ideal Gulfport in 2021. As the group worked through the day, they talked about what they saw as strengths, and weaknesses in the city. They also described opportunities for the city as well as threats to the community. challenges that would control how much of their vision they could achieve. Although the full report from the Institute of Government is not yet available, at the end of the day the city put these priorities at the top of its list: along 49th Street to improve Gulfport Boulevard departments code enforcement ordinances and processes of all city services and recognizes staff I couldnt be happier with the outcome, Banno said later. I think that she (the moderator) really guided us through that whole process. The Gabber will publish the full report once the city receives a copy.

PETE BEACH At noon Wednesday the St. Pete Beach commission offered $30,000 to Bruce Kadoura and Jim Andersen to settle all their lawsuits against St. Pete Beach. The two men are suing the city over comprehensive plan-related issues, including alleged Sunshine Law violations. These are the same cases that have been hanging out there, Commissioner Marvin Shavlan said Wednesday. This demonstrates that were trying to address their issues. The citys attorney Suzanne Van Wyk made the offer to Tim Weber, an attorney Mr. Kadoura asked to intervene with the settlement discussion. Im trying to get everyone together and be happy, thats all I know. There have been negotiations throughout the week, attorney Weber said. He added that the citys offer addresses both parties and asks them both to settle their cases, although Mr. Weber intervened only on behalf of Mr. Kadoura. He also said the citys offer is a counter offer to one Mr. Kadoura previously proposed. The offer, Mr. Weber said, has been communicated but could not speak as to what Mr. Andersen would do, as he says he has never met him. Read this article online to view the citys complete offer.

20 Gabber November 3 November 9, 2011 Letters Quit it! Dear Editor: What is it going to take to get our City Council members to start listening to the Gulfport citizens? Do we need to Occupy Gulfport? Should we march up and down Gulfport Blvd. waving picket signs? Smokers not welcome in Gulfport!, For Sale Boat and RV!, Sorry if my lawn furniture offends you! We need our dispatch!. tell us what color we can paint our houses? What plants we may or may not plant in our yards? Enough is enough! STOP!!! What is wrong with Gulfport now? We love it! Thats why we live here! Bill & Mary OrzechDont Confuse Funky with Junky Dear Editor: Long gone are the days where folks owned acres of property and their neighbors couldnt even see them. Now, in small town America, we own small plats of land... therefore sharing the landscape of our neighborhood. I want Gulfport to have its own colorful, quirky, artsy, imaginative personality, but let us not confuse FUNKY with JUNKY. Whatever our neighbors have on their property does affect us. If we have a personal homestead, homes for rent or for sale, the condition of the neighbors home and property has a direct affect on the neighborhood and can certainly hurt the property values for all of us. If you want grandmas sofa, a boat, motor or a broken down car -okeedokeejust put them in your side or backyard and close them in with a 6 foot slatted fence or tall shrubbery around it, not in the visual landscape of our neighborhood. It is the neighborly thing to do. (Perhaps the Boyscouts, Girl Scouts and good neighbors could assist senior citizens and disabled people.) Dolly TickellClarication Dear Editor: For the past 2 weeks, I have been reading the Gabber, posts on the Internet, and e-mails. I have also been speaking to many citizens on the street. The major issue is CODE ENFORCEMENT. I hope by writing this I can clear up a few concerns. The councils goal was to identify the most complaint-driven code violations received by the city. We were then going to review the codes, and make recommendations for any changes or updates, IF ANY. The workshop was scheduled for October 18 and this would have would have been able to discuss our thoughts on these issues together openly. We ran out of time and did not get the opportunity to speak on any of these ordinances that were brought forward for us to review. We will hold a town meeting at the Gulfport Senior Center at 7 p.m. on November 15. You will have a chance to tell us how you feel at that time, but, as I promised during my campaign, I am always available to all the citys residents, and I encourage you to stop by the restaurant, call me at 727252-9366, or e-mail me at bbanno@ mygulfport.us. My goal for reviewing these ordinances is to keep Gulfports small town charm and character while maintaining a level of respectful organization that we ALL can enjoy. I also hope to achieve a more fair and equitable enforcement of codes, and for us as a city, to be proactive and not complaint-driven. In closing, I have a boat parked in my yard, and am all for keeping the Barbara Banno City Council Member, Ward 2Live-Aboards Not so Good Dear Editor: It has come to my attention through the Gabber that the City of Gulfport (City) is entertaining thoughts of allowing full-time live aboard slips/vessels in the City Marina. I have traveled to many ports, mooring in many marinas, and it is not a sound business policy to setting, such as we enjoy in Gulfport. It is similar to the scenario of having a few blighted homes compromise an entire neighborhood. Here are a few of my observations with regard to deteriorating conditions when liveaboard slips are allowed. contracts, the City would have virtually no control of the vessel/slip as to its condition, sanitary sewer discharge, pet practices by residents, rentals of the vessel to others, vehicle and recreational equipment parking and accumulated junk on decks and docks. the potential liability to the City when a population is living on City property, and associated additional costs for garbage collection, water use, sanitary sewer use and control of the number of live-aboard residents. conflict between the pleasure-boat owners and the live-aboard residents. The live-aboard community usually organizes to make demands, and in general is interested in furthering their own agenda and not the well being of the marina as a whole. repercussion is the potential for the Dock Master to become a landlord, thus diminishing his or her time to manage City Marina business and run a smooth and pleasurable marina environment. In conclusion, if it is your goal to give this beautiful City of Gulfport Marina a permanent black eye, then consider adding live-aboard vessels. If it is your goal to improve the marina for the good of the City and all of its residents, please remove live-aboard vessels from consideration as an option for increasing revenue. Capt. Stephen F. DossThe following letters are in response to Bill Northrops Oct. 27, 2011 column Mob Rule Dear Bill Northrop: A Mob is esp. one that is disorderly and intent on causing trouble or violence according to Dictionary.com. By this any group of people could be called a Mob, like the Tea Party, or perhaps that should only be used with its group of people intending to do harm to others or property, in which case the Occupy Wall Street is not one. While I do not know you personally
Gabber November 3 November 9, 2011 21 to know if you have ever bothered to actually go to an assembly that an Occupy has held, I would greatly fear for you if you had and still wrote that article you titled Mob Rule. For this, I shall try my very best to inform you of what you have grievously misrepresented in your article by giving you facts, sources, news journals, and testimonies of actual members, all that will have a link so you may further you education on what Occupy Wall Street actually is, in this e-mail. of itself entails [Occupy Wall Street Members] are using the revolutionary Arab Spring tactic to achieve our ends and encourage the safety of all participants. (1) In case you are unfamiliar with Arab Spring since anything remotely mentioning the Middle East makes everything after-words sound like terrorism, it is actual the use of protests, boycotting, and general demonstrations through non-violence with the help of social media to spread work, civil uprisings in Bahrain, Syria, and Yemen; major protests in Algeria, Iraq, Jordan, Morocco, and Oman and minor protests in Kuwait, Lebanon, Mauritania, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, and Western Sahara Clashes at the borders of Israel in May 2011 have also been inspired by the regional Arab Spring. (2) The actual Occupy Wall Street movement does not condone violence in any manner. This is a forefront of all gatherings by the members that they should never attack or harm another member, the police, or public citizens regardless of what happens. To become a violent group would not only go against what they are trying to achieve, it would also cause them to no longer be considered a protest but a riot. If they truly became what you are stating, in which they or a majority is [Professional dissenters and so-called activists and community organizers... socialist and communist professional organizers (3) then they would have become a violent group in general. As with any demonstration, there are disorganized crime that happens with select few of the groups. The majority are non-violent and seem to be lumped into groups by article. The list you give goes as such anarchists, freeloaders, druggies, socialists, the American Nazi Party, the Communist Party, people hiding out from arrest warrants, the homeless, nudists, artists, poets, religious activists, politicians, thieves, anti-capitalists, anti-war activists, foreigners, professional agitators, community organizers, the unemployed, the employed and some people actually concerned for the country. (3) I do believe I fail to see if you were only trying to show the broad range of people that the movement note that none of those people apparently care about the future of the country, seems to lead towards the no side. I do have to ask, if the rest of everyone you listed isnt concerned for the country, then seems the encompassing employed and unemployed summed up everyone, unless you are referring to the 14-year-old who was arrested in a protest (4) as being the some people actually concerned for the country(3) since a child who cannot have work surely isnt employed or unemployed by standards? While I cannot contest that homeless, who to be fair were probably living in those parks to begin with, have been attracted to the movement if for nothing else than the food that is provided, I can content with most of those. For the American Nazi Party, I do believe they have this to say about any sort of movement American or ranks, we do not engage in undo publicity through pointless and dangerous Rallies or Marches. We instead stress Small Cell, and Individual Activism as the path for which to build our Movement, as securely and in a responsible manner as possible. (5) As a group, they no longer side with any party or movement. This means, as a group they do not support the Occupy Wall Street movement. Of course, as an individual a member could go to an assembly, but I doubt they want to be around a group that is a leaderless resistance movement with people of many colors, genders and political persuasions (1) since their only goal is for white power. The Socialist Party does support the movement, and with good reason. The two groups both want a complete reform of the government system, a more fair system in which the top 1% of Americans do not control all the wealth, while the Socialist Party wants a reform for the purpose of everyone having an equal share with no wealthy people left. Same action, but they want completely different results. This is the same for many of the mentioned groups. Anti-capitalists, anti-war activists, and the unemployed have plenty of reasons to want a reform of the system, but their goals for what that reform should be is different. Anti-capitalists want a demolish of the capitalist system, Occupy Wall Street wants a reform. Anti-war activists want the wars to end, so does Occupy Wall Street but they still want military just not us policing the whole world while we drown in debt. The unemployed have one of the best reasons to want a reform when our national unemployment is still in the 9% range. As an artist and an employed person I can tell you I support the movement for various reasons. I do not support everything they are hoping to gain but that, like politics, is the norm. I support the reform of the government, that is affordable for all. The top rate than most Americans. Keep in mind that even if youre in the top bracket of 35 percent, you dont pay 15 percent on the money between $17,000 and $69,000, and so on. (6) As for Health Care, why can Canada have health care, yet we do not? Isnt Medicare and Medicaid a form of Universal Health Care? place, people fought it tooth and nail, calling it socialism. The same happened when Social Security was put into place in 1935. Prior to it, any help to the poor from the government was seen as shame. Relief was made as unpleasant as possible in order to discourage dependency. Those receiving relief could lose their personal property, the right (cont.) Letters (cont.)

(7) By these standards listed above, your article is not only a gross misrepresentation of the group itself, its an insult. The fact that you represent the Tea Party, whom named themselves after Americas most celebrated act of vandalism, as a non-violent protest group is also an insult. The Tea Party has the most verbal targeted attacks I have ever had the disgrace to see, yet they are respected while Occupy Wall Street is called a Mob and Riot, or mocked because they use social media to get their points across, like the Tea Party does when it televises its meetings. In short, your article is false and should be either repealed or at the very least, you should learn to research your facts prior to stating your bias opinions on a media format.Kristin Bender Dear Bill: You missed a few people in your list of Bogeymen who allegedly make up and support the Occupy Wall Street Movement. I didnt see a reference to Al Qaeda Terrorists, Al Gore, Jane Fonda, or Osama Bin Laden (he would have made the list if he was alive, wouldnt he?). I think it is important to remember this country was founded by acts of protest. Im certain the Loyalists during the American revolution looked upon Samuel Adams, Thomas Paine, Paul Revere and other Sons of Liberty with the same disdain you heap upon the Occupy Wall Street Movement. The American Revolution included active insurrection. In 1773 a Mob left the Old South Meeting House and went to Boston Harbor. The Mobs Destruction of the Tea was later known as the Boston Tea Party. In contrast, the Occupy Wall Street protests have primarily been peaceful. Peaceful assembly and protest, waving signs, and the right to public speech are fundamental rights under our constitution. incomes of households in the top 1% of households grew by 275% between the bottom 20% of households grew by 17%. If you cannot answer Yes to Ronald Regans question Are you better off than you were four years ago?, you have begun to identify your share of the problem. Whether you believe the current economic crisis is the result of government intervention, or a lack of government oversight, the result is the same. The solution is more elusive. It is easy to blame the government if you do not agree with the policies in effect. Would we have needed bank not invented credit default swaps (insurance) without requiring companies have the reserves to pay claims? Would so many questionable loans been underwritten if the lender planned to keep and service the loan, rather than immediately sell it to an investor? Would so many businesses have closed, leaving people unemployed or under employed, if our government had adopted different policies? There is rarely an I must disagree with your statement There is nothing positive, uplifting, hopeful about the Occupy movement. The fact that the media, the politicians, and the general public are talking about the movement a solution until we identify and understand the problem. We cannot move past political gridlock until we the people insist our representatives face important issues, and take steps to resolve them. We cant sweep this one under the rug, or kick the can down the road. Nothing ever good comes from a States of America.Craig Frethem Dear Bill: Thank you for the crafted and sensibly laid out for all to of this misguided group. It was very whats their beef ? Please keep up opinions, and defending freedom. Malcolm BlackLetters (cont.)

24 Gabber November 3 November 9, 2011 By Matthew Margolis Act To Bring Down Puppy Mills Puppy mills have been around for more than half a century. In the postWorld War II boom, more disposable income and leisure time met with farmers actively searching for alternative crops -a collision that led to the phenomenon of the retail dog. Pet stores sprouted and multiplied as money-minded individuals realized the irresistible appeal of that puppy in the window. With this new industry, along with with living creatures, came abuses that necessitated new regulation. In 1966, President Lyndon B. Johnson signed into law the Animal Welfare Act, which became -and remains -the minimally acceptable standard for animal treatment and care. The USDA is the primary party charged with the enforcement of the AWA. By all reasonable standards, its performance has been grossly uninspired, particularly in the area of commercial cat and dog breeding -a.k.a. puppy mills. Like a lot of legislation, the AWA came with a loophole: It allows commercial breeders who sell puppies online and directly to the public to escape licensing and regulation -a problem that was compounded by the advent and ensuing popularity of the internet. Pending in Congress today, the 2011 Puppy Uniform Protection and Safety Act closes that loophole. It brings all commercial dog breeders under federal oversight, and it mandates most of whom never see the outside of a cage. conditions of puppy mills, said Cori Menkin, senior director of the puppy mills campaign at the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty loophole allows many commercial breeders to operate without a license and without any inspection -meaning they are not accountable to anyone for their breeding and care standards. Thousands of animal lovers across the country are bringing the issue of puppy mills directly to the presidents attention, said Melanie Kahn, senior director of the Puppy Mills Campaign for the Humane Society of the United States. The petition asks the president to close a loophole that permits large-scale, commercial breeders who sell puppies online and directly to the public to escape basic oversight and minimal animal care standards. These animal welfare behemoths, along with hundreds of like-minded organizations, are calling on the Obama administration to help put an end to the puppy mill industry. On the local level, cities and municipalities such as West Hollywood, Calif., and banned the retail sale of dogs and cats. Here are some ways you can help: -Email your U.S. representatives and senators today and ask them to support and co-sponsor the PUPS Act. -Visit wh.gov/gdb to add your name to the White House petition. -Do not buy food, supplies or animals from any store or outlet that sells companion animals. -Do not order a dog or cat off a website. There are many valuable websites are in need of a good home, including the sites of most local animal shelters, rescue groups and sanctuaries. In almost all cases, an in-person visit is -and should be -required. Note: The difference between paying an adoption fee and buying a dog is huge. An adoption fee helps subsidize the cost of shelter and basic care for homeless and rescued animals. When you buy a dog from a pet store or order one off a website, you are providing life-sustaining revenue to an industry that breeds animals of no more homeless pets that much harder to reach.

26 Gabber November 3 November 9, 2011 By Holiday Mathis Its a sensual week under the Scorpio sun, featuring the full Taurus moon on Wednesday. Taurus rules money, money can buy. And while most of the best of lifes delights are not for sale, many are. With a heightened sense of Wednesday, as well, inspiring lofty dreams. ARIES (March 21-April 19). You have a quiet power this week, which youll use to forward your agenda to do good in the world. Your ideas will be adopted, but not because you stand up and lead the way. Instead, you align with others and reinforce with your actions that you are one of within the group. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You may not be as content with the number and depth of your friendships as you once were. You need something more from your social circle. As soon as you want -if not out loud, then at least in your prayers and/or your diary. Your request. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Henry David Thoreau said, Things do not change, we change. Clearly, he didnt live in the computer age, when both things and people are changing together more quickly than ever. Youll enjoy doing what it takes to stay current. Youll be amazingly productive. Be careful to stay balanced, as well. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You may feel a little out of sync at the start of the week for reasons you cant quite discern. Its really an opportunity to open up your eyes and ears. The more observant you are the quicker youll get back in step with those around you. By Wednesday, your good fortune lets you know that your timing is perfect. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Sometimes you wonder why everything has to be so compartmentalized when it comes to emotions. Why is it acceptable to laugh or cry at the movies, but not on the job? Youll invest great passion into many areas of life, including work. So dont be surprised if your feelings are stronger than is acceptable. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Your that seem to tell a wild, barely comprehensible and incomplete story. As fragmented as those pictures may be, there is real wisdom hidden inside them. Dare to delve into and analyze them on a deeper level. A book or guide could help you decipher the golden information. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Your self-imposed limitations serve a noble purpose. They keep your life manageable and orderly. Still, you have the sneaking suspicion that its things get out of hand. Growth is usually a bit messy and awkward, SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Some people come into your life to teach, help and mold you over the years. Both kinds of relationships are important to your development. Youll welcome whatever connection comes up this week, as you are aware that it will change you at least for a while. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You will realize that you have two goals that oppose each other. Once obvious, your challenge will be in deciding which one to let go. Moving forward depends on this. We cannot do everything at once, but we can do something at once. -Calvin Coolidge. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). It may surprise you that there are people who wake up in the morning thinking: How can I have the most fun today? Its a mindset for you to try on. A quest for enjoyment will increase your productivity and enhance your creativity, too. The happier you are the more you turn out compelling, essential work. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Usually, vision comes before venture, but you are open to an alternative sequence. Your impulses may be inspired to make a move before you have a picture in your Honor the instinct, and things work out well for you. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You area and a total newbie in another. hand makes your intellectual prowess seem fragile. Smarts arent everything. Your great emotional intelligence will carry you through awkward learning stages, and youll be up to speed in no time. This Weeks Birthdays : The concentrated effort you give your work will lead to favorable reviews and a promotion. Theres a shift in your priorities in 2012, and once the date changes, youll almost immediately begin thinking about yourself in an entirely different light. February. Things take a happy turn in your personal life. Youll thrill to the sound of your loves voice telling you just what you want to hear. Develop your mind in the spring, and new opportunities arise.

Gabber November 3 November 9, 2011 35 Excerpts heard at the November 1, 2011Gulfport City Council MeetingPublic Comment & Council QuotesABOUT THE SMOKING BAN We believe that the best solution to this problem is to make half the beach smoking free We also think there should be more ashtrays and signs. Cigarette butts are not the only litter on the beach you dont want to infringe on peoples rights to happiness. Some people want to be happy smoking on the beach. Nolan Slone, president of Gulfport Teen Council Ban half the beach. Just dont pass laws you cant enforce and use the laws you already have. Elizabeth Brown-Worthington, on behalf of Teen Council Im not hear to speak as a member of Gulfport teens for cancer. Al Davis I wasnt planning on speaking tonight but when you get personally attacked for being a parent of a teen council member wow, guys. Steven Karbowski, who said he didnt like cigarette smoke but said that there were plenty of places in Gulfport where there was cigarette smoke. You know what we do? he said. We get up and move. The kids did a wonderful job. Im not saying Im against the ban, but liberty is very important. I really praise the kids for understanding liberty. Brian Hilbert I really appreciate our teen council for being concerned about civil liberties. Im so proud of each and every one of them. Councilwoman Jennifer Salmon I have a lot more years of experience and I wish you guys would go back on the internet... and research this before you say its OK to be around it. Vice Mayor David Hastings, about Teen Councils suggestion of splitting the beach into one smoking and one nonsmoking area You did come up with some kind of balance. that balance. Councilwoman Barbara Banno These people are taking another addiction as a form of therapy, which is bad. Vice-Mayor David Hastings, about Alcoholics Anonymous Criminalizing smoking is a slippery slope to be on. Barbara Miszaros, who disagreed with the beach smoking ban So Clam Bayou would get no protection. Cindy Clam Bayou If you walk along even the sidewalks in our town, in the little cracks smoke butt, smoke butt, smoke butt! Lawrence Burke I think government has got to stay out of our lives. Were going too far with it even if you pass this I believe there will be just as many people throwing their butts because there will people doing it when youre not looking. Ed Barry watching for dog poop or a rowdy drinker. Doug Hudson, who advocated the smoking ban. Mr. Hudson brought a bag of what he said were 500 cigarette butts. Its not in the Constitution. Vice Mayor David Hastings, about the right to smoke ABOUT SPECIAL MAGISTRATE I told her that I thought she should be a little more careful about what she wrote. I know I didnt say that I wanted indoor furniture outside, and thats the way it came out in the article. Pat Dunham, about an article in the St. Petersburg Times about proposed code changes. She encouraged city council to Ill volunteer to do it for six months for free and then decided with all this backlash from the Gabber, I dont need the problem. Janet Schaefer, who had volunteered to act as a magistrate. She suggested perhaps the city use someone from outside the city as its magistrate I think its a real risk that its going to get real nitpicky...I think maybe you want to push out poor people and get more taxes out of rich people. Andy Doerring I dont think keeping a property neat is a rich or poor thing. Bev Newcomb Theres a group of people.. because you dont see something being done and our goal has been to obtain compliance through a light-handed methodology. Fred Metcalf, community development director.
36 Gabber November 3 November 9, 2011 Teen, from front pageit is part of the teen councils stated goals to work with the city council. At a recent teen council meeting, teens wasnt teen-friendly and some teen council members said the beaches were unappealing to teens because of litter. In that same meeting the teen council talked about litter on the beach and the proposed smoking ban. The teens then drafted a suggested compromise that would ban smoking on half the beach. While council praised the teen council for its work, with councilman Sam Henderson calling their solution a gift and councilwoman Jennifer Salmon saying the groups understanding of civil liberties made her proud, not everyone shared their view. Im not here to speak as a member of Gulfport teens for cancer, resident Al Davis said when he spoke during the public comment section of the meeting. Mr. Davis told council hed been battling cancer and then turned and displayed his feeding tube to the audience. I was really upset about Al Davis, Amy Slone, Nolan Slones mother, said when she called the Gabber upset me. The way he turned around and showed the kids his feeding tube. For Mr. Davis to say the kids were pro-cancer, like they were up there promoting smoking. Nolans the biggest anti-smoking person you will ever meet. Mr. Slone told the Gabber that he felt his maturity level may have meeting older than him. To trash us is just rude and disrespectful, he said. Ms. Slone said that while no one on council was shocked that the city council didnt take the suggestion, she sensed that the teens were more upset about the way people talked about the teens during the meeting. Christine Brown-Worthington, mother of Elizabeth, said she felt the vice mayor condescended to the teen council, while another parent said she thought the teen council got a good lesson in government tonight. Vice Mayor David Hastings, who later thanked the teens, told them he wished they would go back on the internet and research this before you say its OK to be around it. I didnt say it was OK, to be around second-hand smoke, Laura Karbowski said. The vice mayor said he did not intend to condescend to the teens and apologized if the parents and teens felt he condescended to them. How was I condescending? I complimented them, like all the other council members. If they think thats condescending, Im sorry. Maybe I get a little too passionate sometimes. Nothing was meant to be condescending, he said. The vice mayor also told the Gabber he wished the teens had participated in the process sooner. The vice mayor said he previously met with Marivel Gutierrez,the city employee who runs teen council, to discuss cigarette butts at the recreation center. At that meeting he suggested that the council should hear from Gulfport youth. Although he disagreed with teen councils suggestion for the divided beach, he said he hopes to see more teen involvement. How does the vice mayor propose teens participate sooner in the future? I would love for a teenager to come in here with an issue. I would love to know whats on their minds and what they think the city can do for them. Theyre part of the city; theyre the future. Why not listen to how they think? he said. As for Elizabeth BrownWorthington? but a mayor. I really admire her, he said. Ms. Slone said she suspects her son, Nolan, will take the vice mayor up on his offer and speak with him. Ms. Slone also told the Gabber resident Al Davis comments upset her more than the vice mayors. Mr. Slone said this was the Although council opted not to choose the teen councils solution, he said he still believed in his idea.

38 Gabber November 3 November 9, 2011 Somethin on my mind Somethin on my mindBy Bill Northr op B_Northr op@theGabber. com Redistributing the Wealth As protesters protest, and occupiers occupy, government reports indicate that indeed the rich are getting richer and the poor poorer in a relative sense. That is, the report states that between 1979 and 2007 incomes for the top one per cent grew by 275 per cent while the bottom 20 per cent grew by only 17 per cent. I dont know Anyway, thats before the big crash and it will be interesting to see what A more alarming report is that the top 10 per cent own 66 per cent of the net wealth of this country. Note the word net. It means after debt. I assume that to mean that if you have a mortgage on your home and that the bank is a 75 per cent owner and you are a 25 per cent owner. It might be interesting to note that in the early 1900s, my grandfather was writing articles for the New York families owned 40 per cent of the wealth of the country. a vigorous application of income new entrepreneurship. It is also interesting to note that the estate so, actually provided incentives for people to pass their wealth, not to their heirs, but to big corporations which could pay them the big bucks. However, no matter how you cut it, theres disparity out there. Almost everyone has complained when they see some CEO depart from a corporation with a multi-million dollar severance package even though the company did not fare well. So, the question arises: is it unfair? Of course, we know that neither life nor capitalism, or any other economic system is fair. But is it as fair as it can be? How can we make it fairer? Heres my list of the rich rich: Hollywood actors and entertainers and writers and producers. Corporate CEOs. Investment bankers and traders. Investors such as Warren Buffet. Inventors and innovators such as Gates and Jobs and Allen. Athletes -in football, baseball, hockey and basketball (on strike for more) and athletic team owners. Professional coaches, college coaches. Trial lawyers. Entrepreneurs who start and keep their own businesses instead of creating public companies. Those who inherit wealth. Surgeons. Ive probably missed a category or two. But, you get the idea. Now how do we get this wealth from the top 10 per cent pays 70 per cent cent of the population pays no federal so do the rich) and 35 per cent of that top tier would probably help, but not much. There was talk of that in the 1960s and 70s, but it all sounded like what the communists were doing and still do in Cuba. Should corporate CEOs be paid only as a multiple of the average workers salary? Stockholders have them? Should the government do it for them? Who in government should decide? How about the business owner, a sole proprietor or owner? Should we tell him what he should pay himself (or herself)? What about athletes and entertainers, television personalities and inventors? Should object vehemently to attempts to cap their earnings in class action suits. Should we force the richer people to give their money away or just take it from them? Many form foundations as well as to give to charity. Should we interfere with this mechanism? And, where would the money go? Back to the government coffers, direct payments to those with lower incomes? Again, were back to what is fair and maybe what is rich (someone who makes more than you do?). necessarily help, though it might purchases, and an elimination of would hit everybody on the basis of costs of goods. Buy a higher priced car and you pay more. It would hit the underground (illegals and evaders) economy. But, its a hard sell and may or may not solve the disparity problem. In short, I dont have the solution. Hopefully, and historically, the is, not everyone stays poor or rich. In that perspective, the important strategy is to provide opportunities for people to move up the income bracket. Whats on your mind? Email your opinion to: B_Northrop@theGabber.com

44 Gabber November 3 November 9, 2011 By Robert J. Myers, Esq. Why Buy-Sell Agreements are Important (Part 1) If you own a company and have a partner or partners, have you ever considered what would happen should one of you die? Hopefully, you wont have to face this situation, but if you do, a buysell agreement can allow for the continuance of the company as for you, your partner(s), and your family. A buy-sell agreement not only protects against the death of protection if a partner retires, resigns or becomes disabled. Lets look at a situation where there was no buysell agreement in place. Ms. Smith and Mr. Gonzales are equal partners of XYZ Services Company. They have determined that XYZ is worth $2 million. They each own $1 million of ABC stock and they each draw an annual salary of $150,000. When Mr. Gonzales died, his stock worth $1 million will pass to his estate. However, the stock will pay no dividends because all earnings are retained by XYZ. Therefore, Mr. Gonzales family will be left with a non-income producing and illiquid asset. Mr. Gonzales only return from XYZ was his salary which, of course, ceased upon his death. The Gonzales family could appeal to Ms. Smith to pay dividends on the stock, but why would Ms. Smith want to pay dividends? Salaries are a dividends are not. Also, dividends would have to be paid on all outstanding shares, including those held by Ms. Smith. Ms. Smith also has a potential problem. The Gonzales family holds half of XYZs stock--what effect will this have on the long-term development plans of the business? Another problem that the Gonzales family and Ms. Smith have is how to determine the value of XYZ stock. An interest in a closely held company is often an unmarketable asset and placing a value on the stock for estate factors affect the fair market value of a closely held business, including general business trends, the outlook condition of the company and its earnings power. While Ms. Smith and Mr. Gonzales may have felt they knew the value of XYZs stock before Mr. Gonzales died, unless the value authorities are likely to get closely involved in the valuation of XYZs stock and try to justify its highest value. The valuation of the stock will create likely want to place the lowest value on the stock in order to minimize placing a value on a closely held business. The step-up in cost basis that is afforded to all capital assets being imposed on the sale following death. This has to be scrutinized rather closely in light of the estate value of the business was increased. If an agreement on the value of XYZs stock cannot be reached, the matter may have to be resolved in court, wasting considerable time and money. A properly designed buy-sell agreement can help prevent many of these problems. It can provide liquidity for the family of the deceased, ensure the continuance of the company, and establish the value of the companys stock. together how a buy-sell agreement between Ms. Smith and Mr. Gonzales would lessen some of the uncertainties in their business relationship as well as provide for an orderly transition of the business upon Mr. Gonzales death.

46 Gabber November 3 November 9, 2011 Everyday Cheap$kateBy Mary HuntWhat Kids Can Learn About Money and Life in This Economy afraid of everything. At the top of my list were communists, nuclear bombs and getting kidnapped by the Russians. I was totally convinced theyd sneak into town and grab me precisely moment the citywide air raid sirens sounded for the weekly test. No one would miss me until it was too late. My keen imagination turned me into a pint-sized emotional wreck. I dont know where I got my information, skewed as it was. In the that they would always protect me, I was left to my own devices. Its no secret that as a nation we are going through economically troubling times. Your personal economy may be how much should your youngsters and pre-teens know? I have a few thoughts: Keep it simple. If your kids are old enough to be aware that something is going on with the national economy, talk about it. Keep it simple and brief, followed by the assurance that national and world economies have been going up and down for centuries. Life is a journey. We never know for sure whats up ahead. Filter. Limit (or eliminate) kids shows that drone on and on about the economy. Kids may not understand, but theyll pick up on the negativity and worry about things over which they have no control. Kids should know that the most important economy is the one within your home. Income. Parents should not, in my opinion, tell children how much money they earn -whether you are at the poverty level, treading the waters of unemployment or well-heeled. Kids dont need that information, and when they have it they dont know how to interpret it. One reader shared how, as a child, her entire attitude about life changed the day she decided they were rich and she deserved whatever she wanted. Condition. If, in light of the current economic news, the kids ask about your own question like, Honey, why do you want to know? If the child worries youll be homeless tomorrow, assure her that is not the case. If he asks so he can brag about how rich he is, the answer should be something like, That is our private information privacy. Model. A frugal lifestyle, where you live below your means, is the best environment in which to raise kids. When children observe their parents consuming carefully, making wise spending decisions, choosing not to buy the biggest and the best, and not living on credit, they begin to assimilate those values. The most important thing you can teach your kids right now -and at the same time yourself -is that they are going to be OK, and together as a family you can weather any storm. And you will!

Gabber November 3 November 9, 2011 51 Breast Cancer... Wheee!So, OK, my friend Kelli has breast cancer. Which, I think we can all agree, sucks. Shes got a little kid and husband who love and need her very much, and she has, over the past 40-some-odd years, grown rather fond of being alive. The whole cancer thing inconvenient for her, to say the least. Before I continue, I want to say that Ive known more than my fair share of people with breast cancer and, sadly, many other varieties of cancer. My aunt and godmother died way too young of breast cancer, but my greatgrandmother and grandmother both survived it. Cancer is as rampant in my family as anger issues, drunken grudges that last longer than most marriages; I am no stranger watching people battle cancer. I tell you this so that you understand my sincerity when I tell you cancer is a laughing matter. It has to be. Kelli and her family could spend hours on the couch, fretting over what might happen and what, in fact, has happened to many others. It would not do them a bit of good, and she realizes this. The best thing she can do is demand the best care available, ask lots of questions, and, as she decided to do after receiving her primary diagnosis, laugh her way through the disease. Cancer, we decided, can be funny. Breast cancer doubly so, if youll pardon the pun. Dont think so? Kelli and I have prepared a short list of ways shes going to laugh her way through this nightmare. As she said to me as we shopped for Halloween candy last week, shes the one with cancer, so whos going to argue with her? 6. You get to be bald. Look, I have no idea what my scalp looks like. Is it bumpy? Does it have any odd birthmarks? Is bald a good look for me? Most of us will never know, because we simply lack the fashion fortitude to shave our heads. Cancer patients, though... man, they get to the hair could grow back a different color, curlier, or straighter. Its like getting a whole new head of hair for free. 5. Until you do lose your hair, why not have some fun? Go big or go home, I say. Kelli didnt start chemo in time for Halloween, so we missed the boat on dying her hair orange and black and shaving a pumpkin into the back of her head. With a little luck, though, shell have poisons whipping through her blood by Thanksgiving, so were thinking of shaving a horn of plenty into the back of her heard and dying her dark blonde locks some soothing horn-of-plenty colors. 4. Points. Kelli is lucky enough to have health insurance she and her husband own PJs but she still has to make co-pays to her new BFFs: oncologists, surgeons, and payments, she can use the points to take a trip to Spain and eat grilled octopus. 3. Weight loss. For women, this is a biggie. How many of us struggle to pounds off our hips? Once you start getting chemo, youre probably not going to keep anything down. For people like me who are a big fan of food, that part, admittedly, is a bit of a downer. Kellis gym membership luck is it that she hadnt gotten around to renewing yet? She can hang up her gym shoes and sit back and just watch the weight fall off! Plus, you know, the weight shes going to lose with that double mastectomy shell be model-thin. As I understand it, a DD cup breast weighs about 10 pounds. Thats 20 pounds right there. point... 2. You get new boobs. Most women get breast cancer either right about the time or just after their breasts start to, shall we say, feel their age. For you perky A and B cups out there, aging breasts arent an issue. For those of us slightly more well endowed, though, the prospect of gunning down middle age with a new set of the ladies is wonderful. Because and this is the best part the new set wont sag. Ever. Think about that for a moment. You get to trade in the 1960s or 1970s models for brand-new cleavage that can be any size you want. 1. Nothing. Nothing is the best part about getting cancer, even highly treatable (when caught early) cancers such as breast cancer. The treatment isnt fun. Losing your hair, not being able to keep food down, having a single or double mastectomy its all just a rotten, lousy hand of cards that one in every eight women will be dealt in her life. I have tremendous hope for Kelli and women like her, and I hope that as they go through the hell that is to laugh. After all, journalist Linda Ellerbee says, a good time to laugh is any time you can. Id be lying if I told you Kelli wasnt to laugh now. And, after all, shes the one with cancer. Who are we to argue? Contact Cathy Salustri at CathySalustri@theGabber.com.
