No. 2270 August 9 August 15, 2012 Off the Beach and At Risk for DerelictBy Cathy Salustri (Editors Note: This story is a follow-up to last weeks cover story, It Takes a Village to Raise a Sailboat. Read that story online at theGabber.com) Just two days after volunteers pushed and pulled John Burkis sailboat Promise off Jason Motte posted an At Risk Vessel Notice on the boats hull Friday. The notice, which Police Chief Rob Vincent told the Gabber the police have also sent to Mr. Burki at his Veterans Administration hospital bed, tells Mr. Burki that his boat is in risk of being designated a derelict vessel. This notice, Chief Vincent said, is part of a legal process and the city has State authorization to post such a notice. If the legal owner of the boat Mr. Burki does not comply, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) may seize and remove the boat from Boca Ciega Bay. It may also authorize the city to do so on its behalf, Vincent added. following conditions that are of concern to the Gulfport Police Department: the notice: Your vessel is a documented vessel. The Florida registration sticker is uptodate and expires on June 7, 2014, however, your vessel name and home port are not clearly visible, causing the vessel to be out of code regarding document vessels. Your vessels and your vessel appears to be unnavigable due to this and the lack of propulsion (sail or motor). Your vessels interior is exposed to the elements since there is no hatch or windows and there was no operational anchor light. Additionally, your vessel of the rigging removed. See Derelict Boat, page 3Dreamers FateBy Cathy Salustri Dreamer, an American Bulldog, began receiving veterinary care Monday morning at Gulfport Veterinarian. The veterinarian muzzled him as a precaution, as no one could predict how the dog would react to blood draws. The dog submitted to the exam without aggression. Dreamer, the dog who lived aboard the sailboat Promise with Jay Burki, started the road to recovery Monday morning, although according to the veterinary tech who looked over the dog, he still has a couple of months See Dreamer, page 36 National Night Out: Barbeque and Fingerprinting Gulfport police ofcer Jennifer Crowson ngerprints ve-year-old Joshua Gregory at Tuesdays National Night Out.

Those laws, according to Police Chief Robert Vincent, have some grey areas. For those instances, the city works with the SPCA. Obviously, if somebodys beating an animal, thats clear, but there are some grey areas, and thats why we work with the SPCA they can make the distinction, Chief Vincent says. Pinellas County Animal Services does not investigate animal cruelty or neglect claims, according to Chief Vincent; they only investigate crimes involving dogs, such as dog bites or animal attacks. 14 19 49th Str eet S. 7 27-3 2 1-6 96 5 A dvertising@theGabber .comDisplay Ad vertising fr om $1 7. 20 per column inch.

By Cathy SalustriCity of St. Pete Beach: Ballot Language Q: When the issue about the police department goes to a vote in November, why can't the city just word the ballot language to say "Do you want the Sheriff or a city-run police department?" A: Because the ballot language comes directly from the charter and that explained that the voters would have to repeal the charter provision that says the city cant contract for police services before the commission can and a simple question (such as the one above) would not satisfy the law.

22 Gabber August 9 August 15, 2012 By Robert J. Myers, Esq. What is the Role of a Personal Representative in Probate? A personal representative is a person or entity that is appointed by the Probate Court to be the overseer of the administration of a deceased person's estate. A personal representative is required by the Probate Court to make sure that the deceased's estate is administered in accordance with Florida law. Generally, a personal representative is obligated to identify, accumulate and protect those assets which are part of the probate estate. This process is also known as the marshalling of probate assets. Because the personal representative has a bate estate to protect assets in the estate, this responsibility is courttory with the Probate Court. A personal representative is required to publish a "Notice of Administration" in a newspaper of lowho the personal representative and attorney of the estate are as well as initiates the creditor claims period of ninety (90) days. The Notice of Administration also states the reer papers relating to the estate. A personal representative may object to the claims of creditors as well as defend lawsuits which arise against a deceased person's estate. Normally, a lawyer will be retained to guide a personal representative through the probate process. It is the obligation of a personal representative to hire an attorney if the personal representative needs assistance in the probate of an estate. A personal representative is further obligated to pay valid creditor claims of the probate estate, pay taxes of ries of a probate estate.

28 Gabber August 9 August 15, 2012 By Holiday Mathis Projected identity is so often a lie or some exaggerated version of the truth in our highly developed society. Consult the Facebook page of anyone you know. Nearly everyone wears a mask. But because we all agree to the hoax, it becomes a game. This is the theme of the week, as Venus in Cancer opposes Pluto in Capricorn creating an interesting tension between who we are and who we want people to believe we are. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). The basic human drive to be healthy, wealthy and wise doesnt entirely encompass want to be a creative contributor unique way. Youll get the chance to hone your talents and share them this week. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Ambitious people struggle outwardly for a certain reality. Passive people may appear to accept what is while inwardly struggling with the current reality. You are neither this week. You deal with and appreciate what comes while headed in the direction of your choosing, no struggle necessary. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Your domestic and professional lives are in sync, and there is much youll be able to accomplish because of the lack of tension and competition between these two sectors. Your needs will be mirrored by what occurs on Wednesday, and a new goal will be born. Youll meet the people who will support this goal this weekend. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). The business of moving mountains to get what you want is tricky, mostly because mountains dont want to be moved. First consider whether you can have some version of what you want without having to change the landscape. If you determine that the mountain still must be moved, there are ways. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Letting go isnt something you do once and then its done. Its a process, maybe even a lifestyle. This week youll be made aware of what you need to give up, and youll be more than willing to let go of things that no longer serve their purpose. The how is easy; just open your hand. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Even if you are at the top of your game, youre not quite equipped for this weeks challenge. This will prompt you to explore new perspectives, which in turn will blow open the door that leads to fresh adventure. In the end, this challenge makes life richer and makes you stronger and happier. AQUARIUS you seek power and accomplishment, what you get is much different. Friendship, wisdom and humorous circumstances are the outcropping of your quest. After Wednesday, be careful not to get overly familiar with people. Maintain your sense of structure, and youll also maintain your charisma. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You handle your emotions well. Life has made you into the perfect mix of sensitivity and strength, and others feel safe and open around you. This week features deep sharing and the building of bonds, but its not all mushy. Relationships serve you in practical ways, too, and you provide tangible help to others. ARIES (March 21-April 19). Youll speculate about what you could do if you put your mind to it, though you wont actually know until you make room in your life to concentrate on what you want. Something may be preventing you from spending time in your own way. Wednesdays events help you clear obstacles and take back your power. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You can look up to someone without putting that person on a pedestal. You realize we are all equal and different, and this principle guides your every interaction. On Friday, someone you admire very much admires you right back for reasons you might be surprised to discover. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Those who ask whether what theyre wearing makes them look fat expect you to say no regardless of the truth. But even white lies will be hard for you and others to manage this week. So, generally speaking, this is a good time not to ask questions of friends and family unless you truly want to know the answers. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Theres a saying: Wherever you go, there you are. But this week, unless you are standing somewhere youve never been before, you may not notice enough about where you are to feel like youre anywhere at all. Embrace new travel and adventure, and youll enjoy quality there-youare time. This Week's Birthdays: Your ability to focus increases this year. You will not tire quickly of something fascinating and follow it through to its natural conclusion. You will be ultra-productive by at a time. Romance is a feature in September. October brings a purchase essential to your work. Family celebrates you for new reasons in November. December is the most lucrative for business, and another windfall comes in July.

Gabber August 9 August 15, 2012 29 LettersMany Thanks Dear Editor: I want to send out grateful thanks to the kind woman me know I had a bag on top of my I forgot to put it in the car! Also a big thanks to the city employee who found my wallet on the same street! I was frantic, knowing if the bag was there, my wallet is gone.! I searched up and down the street and back to my house, nothing. I live on the same street, how could it be gone so quickly. Drove to the daughter's house, got her. Another pair of eyes won't hurt. Went to the park, by tennis courts, checking the trash bins. Well, after that, decided I needed to contact my city guys, some of whom are my CERT family. They can keep an eye out for me. I see a city truck go by at that instant. Decided to go to police station and make a report in case someone honest turns it in. The kind woman working there came around to the lobby and asked me if I said I lost a wallet. I said Yes. She asked what color. Seems like that wonderful the street and brought it in. What a coincidence is that! Proving once again what a wonderful city we have and the people who live and work here are just awesome! Thank you again to these wonderful people.Elaine AmandolaBoat Owner...With a "Black Eye" Dear Editor: I read with interest the story of the boat driven ashore Village..." Aug. 2, 2012 edition). I was on the water front the eve it dragged its inadequate anchor. It would appear that this was an accident waiting to happen. What concerns me as a yacht owner, is that, as the story unfolded and the true nature of this liveaboard hell was revealed, it indeed as quoted in the story is a "black eye" for those who choose to live aboard their boats. I have lived aboard boats in UK, Caribbean, and here in USA and have been, I hope, a responsible boater. I sat out two hurricanes precautions as required. There are options here to preserve one's vessel of threats abound. This man is a disgrace, and should be encouraged NOT to reboard that health hazard. Indeed Gulfport could with adequate moorings suited to the size and weight of the vessel using it, a SMALL fee per month for up keep, then responsible boat owners would be an asset to the town. The local business. Indeed as the word spread throughout the liveaboard community, Gulfport would be on the chart as a boat friendly harbour. In addition a visit to ALL boats anchored by the Marine Patrol would ensure no repeat of this slight on the good and careful owners who choose the life aboard a well found vessel. I must add that I arrived here by sailing vessel and as I passed the lines of derelict and semi-derelict hulks, I was not in favour of anchoring here. There seemed to be some unsavoury coves around and the security of my yacht, my wife and myself was not assured, therefore I moved on. I therefore put it to you to help in some way to make Gulfport a more welcoming haven for REAL boaters who choose to have the freedom of all the myth that a hulk is affordable housing it is not! As your article states, additions to this boat to make it safe had to be bought by the people who were striving to rid the shore of this eyesore. Boats require maintenance, sometimes daily. It is not a cheap option. I have met people home and abroad who thought it was, they soon run out of money and resort to nothing less than piracy to survive. Therefore to make Gulfport a happy harbour some clearing out of the closet is required.Max J Dorf

32 Gabber August 9 August 15, 2012 Somethin on my mind Somethin on my mindBy Bill Northr op B_Northr op@theGabber. com Worst of the Worst I had an interesting conversation about medical care and the implementation of the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) over the weekend at a family get together. Most of the comments came from my daughter, a doctor, who directs a hospital based pediatric out-patient clinic in the Bronx in New York City and her husband, a solo practitioner in internal medicine and cardiology in Manhattan. Their observations were not encouraging. Their shared overview is that the majority of the money being spent and dollars present and future will go towards the bureaucracy, insurance companies, pharmaceutical companies, and trial lawyers. The dollars will not go to provide more and better care. For instance, as hospitals prepare for the new standards, rules and regulations, they are spending large sums of money on training, re-training, and understanding the new rules. to ensure that government forms are Doctors, in the meantime, have to go electronic records systems compatible with each other. For those who already have electronic systems, this means a conversion that may for a solo practitioner. For with a paper system, the conversion may be too expensive and too unwieldy. Moreover, electronic systems, at least initially, slow down patient processing. Electronic systems, one compatible with the other, are desirable, but neither cheap to install, nor, more importantly, easy to maintain. For those doctors near retirement age, these transitions will not happen. The result is a shortage of doctors which is already occurring and will be exacerbated by standard care being offered to the estimated 30 million who will now have insurance. use of the system. What will happen is that more patients will be seen by nurse practitioner or physicians' assistants whose training in relation to a primary care physician is minimal. The new law also provides for a program of medical school graduates moving directly into care positions in rural, remote, or underserved city-center areas. In contrast, the standard for a physician today is a college degree, a medical college degree, and three years residency training (with competitive testing at each step). The huge boost in medical knowledge, technology and equipment has also spurred a growth in specialities and sub-specialities which require additional training. As a for instance, my youngest son, a pediatrician, has three years of residency, three years as an emergency room physician, and is in his second year of a three year training for pediatric critical pediatrician, has one year of surgical residency, three years of pediatric residency, will have at least three years in general practice, before she starts a three year program for pediatric emergency, her desired Perhaps minimal training is all that is needed in most instances and at least some professional evaluation is available to those who cannot get affordable care now. And, such a program might relieve pressure on emergency departments which are often overwhelmed by nonno emergency department can turn away a patient, patients might still choose to go where the depth of care is better. My son did have that experience in a city center hospital where the patients by-passed urgecare centers in favor of the emergency departments. In addition to the level of care issue, according to my son-in-law, the new regulations call for studies to determine appropriate treatments. This would, he contends, eliminate the minority of patients who only respond to, or are genetically predisposed, to respond to certain drugs or treatments. The majority or consensus, rather than the individual, will rule. In other words, if a certain treatment, not generally effective for the majority, works for you, payment for that treatment would be denied. And, there are more regulations Affordable Care bill, and noted then that there are thousands of pages of will be initiated by the Secretary of will control medical practices. The Massachusetts plan, by the way, known as Romneycare, has just initiated a comprehensive control system for all medical care in that state. Under the Affordable Care Act doctors and hospitals must meet certain new standards or face penalties. This is not a positive view of the new health care proposals, I recognize, if you're wondering about my daughter and son-in-law's political bent, you might be a bit surprised. As New Yorkers, they lean liberal and democratic party, although my son-in-law is more libertarian. third party payer system (Medicare) for years because he believes we owe our citizens comprehensive care.

34 Gabber August 9 August 15, 2012 The Captain For the last several years of my life, Ive been lucky enough to share it with a man who not only tolerates my crazy (no short order there, I assure you), but to share it with a man who chooses to earn his living as a boat ledge aside (again, no easy task), he impresses me. Forget what youve heard about boat captains, because boat captains real boat captains, not people who buy a boat and decide to set up camp in Boca Ciega Bay are some of the most conscientious, responsible, and hard working men and women you will ever meet. If I say boat captain and all you can picture is last weeks cover photo of the beached, derelict sailboat, keep reading. A real captain wont leave the dock if he cant trust his sails, motor, and fuel, tests the radio, and takes a hard look at his boat before setting sail. A real captain can handle a boat, and I dont just mean an afternoon sail a variety of situations a stormy afternoon, a transatlantic voyage, or a cruise through the Greek isles. A real captain maintains his boat in good working order, and that submits his recreational vessel to a Coast Guard inspection, and he a backup radio on board. A real captain understands weather and anchoring and how different types of anchors work in different anchoring in sand differs greatly from appropriate ground tackle on his boats at all times to make sure he is prepared for anything. A real captain gets his ass back home when weather looms on the horizon, and when he stores his boat in the water, he takes every precaution he can to save the boat in the event of the storm. More importantly, he secures the boat so it wont be a danger to anyone elses life or property. And thats just an unlicensed captain. Once somebody has a captains license, theyre bringing their A game. El Cap has a sailing license, and a string of classes I can stuff I neither remember nor fully understand. All I know is when we travel he has a card he can show instead of a passport, and he takes the title of captain very, very seriously. I would trust him with my life, and not just because he could kill me in my sleep and chooses not to. I would trust him with my life because takes his responsibility as captain, whether its just me, him and Calypso on the boat or if hes carrying paid passengers. Im not so much bragging about what he can do as I am trying to show you that captains arent lacksadaisical layabouts who hang out at the corner bar and whistle at girls as they pass. They arent the type of people who live on a half-functional sailboat in the bay. They arent the type of people whose incomplete understanding of navigation, anchoring, and weather lead to a boat running aground, and if for some reason that did happen, they wouldnt leave the boat there for any length of time. I have long supported Gulfports the suggestion that the city marina allow regulated liveaboards. Last week, I watched the local sailing community help push a rundown beach because they had the same fear I did: that somewhat uneducated but otherwise truly decent people would look at the Promise and decide that would bring to their community. Please believe me: that boat owner boating community considers a true liveaboard. The Promise? It isnt even a boat anymore. Im almost positive that if the good sailors who freed the boat from the sand could have gotten away with the deed, Gulfport Fire Rescue would have witnessed the Why do I care, anyway? Sailing in Boca Ciega Bay isnt really dangerous, and Debby was certainly no perfect storm. The average depth of the bay is eight feet, the bottom is mostly sand, and the waters, more Cap, and others like him, are likely like it. So who cares if every now and then a boat runs aground? Whats the big deal, really? Why would I waste a column talking about what constitutes a captain? Because I know how seriously real captains take their title, and I know that our boating community is a responsible one that cares about its boats, its waters, and its non-boating members. I know that El Cap, and hundreds of others like him, would never allow that to happen to his boat and his community. As for the man who owned the boat on last weeks front page? I shudder to think that when people ask what El Cap does for a living and I say boat captain, this is what they picture. Because the man who owns Promise? Thats no captain.

36 Gabber August 9 August 15, 2012 said Mr. Burki could stay with him a few days and appeared unaware that Mr. Burki intended to stay with him Tuesday evening. The caretaker who has a girlfriend undergoing chemotherapy needs someone to watch Dreamer for a few days, starting Thursday, as when his girlfriend undergoes treatment he needs to be able to devote his energy to caring for her. Dreamer needs daily pills and has a tendency to lift his leg, although the caretaker says if hes diligent about getting Dreamer outside this is not a large problem. Mr. Burki could not say where he intends to live. Ill have to survey the situation, he said Tuesday afternoon. Dreamer, from front pagebefore he could have surgery. When Mr. Burki went to the hospital with a broken jaw last week, a friend who lives in the Old Northeast section of St. Petersburg offered to watch the dog. Several Gulfport residents offered to get Dreamer medical attention. Monday morning Dreamer took a trip to the vet. According to Gulfport Veterinarian, Dreamer needs treatment for the following: *Cherry eye, a condition where the third eyelid bulges on the eye. Surgery will correct this condition. Monday morning this reporter observed blood around the eye where Dreamer scratched the eye. The eye is also infected, according to Gulfport Veterinarian *Fleas. The vet prescribed a six month course of Trifexis. *Skin infection, possibly a staph infection. *Mild ear infections in both ears *Possible bladder infection. One of the people who offered to get Dreamer medical care noticed that Dreamer had brown urine. Workers at the clinic said that could signify a bladder infection, which could be the result of the dog trying not to soil its living quarters. *The veterinarian recommended neutering the American Bulldog. Dreamers caretaker told the he had tried, unsuccessfully, to get Mr. Burki to do so but Mr. Burki expressed reluctance to neuter Dreamer unless medically necessary. Monday morning the vet tech observed a thickening of the dogs rectum, not uncommon, she said, in unaltered males. She added that such thickening could indicate rectal tumors, although she stressed that it was a possibility only. Gulfport Veterinarian prescribed prednisone as well as an antibiotic to try and heal Dreamers skin. They also drew blood to check for heartworm, roundworm, and hookworm and took a fecal sample to check for tapeworms. Thus far, Dreamers medical bills total $300. The veterinarian wants the dogs skin infection to clear and remain clear for two weeks after completing treatment. At that time, they can operate on the cherry eye and, if Mr. Burki consents, neuter the dog. Although Gulfport police received no animal neglect or cruelty complaints about Mr. Burki prior to last week, Monday Police Chief Robert Vincent called the SPCA and asked that they investigate Dreamers condition. The investigation continues at press time. Tuesday afternoon a Gulfport resident met with Mr. Burki upon his release from the hospital. She Dreamers best interests for Mr. Burki to surrender the dog. Mr. Burki refused. The resident then presented an offer she said came from several refused again. You need to think of whats best for Dreamer, she said, citing Mr. Burkis own words that he fed the dog leftovers from local restaurants. Dreamer got restaurant food if he Whats best for Dreamer is whats best for me, he told the resident, who continued to try to persuade him; Mr. Burki then grew agitated and said he would no longer discuss the matter. As of the last contact with Dreamers caretaker, Mr. Burki has not yet shown up to reclaim him, although Mr. Burki said he planned to stay with the caretaker. The caretaker
