Gabber March 28 April 3, 2013 9 Corey Avenue Workshop: One Step Toward a Bustling DowntownST. PETE BEACH As early as the end of June, the city could as a redevelopment area and start working on projects that will spur redeveloping the downtown. The city designated the area as a CRA. A CRA refers to a community reinvestment area. If youve been in Dunedin, theyre a CRA, Community Development George Kinney said. If a community chooses to adopt one, then there are statutory and how its operated, Mr. Kinney said. St. Pete Beach has designated the Corey area as a CRA (please see the accompanying map to see the boundaries of the district). Gulfport also has a CRA. To help move the redevelopment along, city staff and commissioners told residents they wanted input about Corey Avenue from those affected by any changes. To that end, the city held a two-hour workshop last Thursday evening to hear from those with concerns about the area. to help focus on certain catalytic projects for redevelopment, Mr. Kinney said. It was to set the groundwork, lay out a road map for prioritization, for the CRA. Thursdays workshop. There was a good mix of owners, merchants and residents, Kinney said. There was overwhelming support that Corey Avenue needs to be redeveloped.... what we were going after in this workshop is what projects lay within the district that would be good ones to focus on to get the ball rolling, Mr. Kinney said, saying he and staff looked for shovel-ready projects. There were all kinds of suggestions, on densities, on uses, styles, appearances, aesthetics, public art the kind of things you normally get. Our job going forward is to take those comments support actual projects that can be the focal point of the CRA, Mr. Kinney said. The Tampa Bay Regional Planning Council will help the city tailor those ideas, working them into projects that will spur other redevelopment in the district. Money for these projects will come from property taxes on land and buildings in the CRA, although Mr. Kinney stressed that the properties in the CRA would not see new taxes as a result of the CRA. The funding structure, called TIF (Tax Increment Financing), works for properties in the CRA will not increase or decrease differently than they do elsewhere in the city. CRA the year a city establishes the CRA, a portion of the taxes that the city earns as a result of the increase (not the full value) goes into a TIF fund, for improvements in the CRA, and only in that area. St. Pete Beachs consultant, TindaleOliver, will help the city negotiate the terms of the TIF with the county.

26 Gabber March 28 April 3, 2013 By Holiday Mathis March breaks free of the old adage and does not go out like a lamb as promised. As Pluto challenges the Aries (guest list including the sun, Venus, Uranus and Mars), he throws accusations and airs grievances. Old issues emerge for us like sea monsters from the deep. Some people will react by making bold and necessary changes -so maybe these sea monsters are friendly after all. ARIES Sometimes you fear that if you dont do the work that it wont be done correctly. Perhaps more precisely, it of whats correct. This week youll feel more open to letting people help and give their own spin to the job, too. Your attitude of openness makes life so much easier for all. TAURUS you hear someone declare that there is no right or wrong way, youll be skeptical. There is a right way -the way that works for you. This week you may have to try up to three wrong ways in order to get to know what the right way is. Thursday and Friday are your sweet spot for getting a return on your efforts. GEMINI you felt was really true -you are being subjected to a subtle scrutiny. The trick is not to try and please them. Instead, deepen your belief in yourself to the point where you no longer care what their verdict is. This but these changes will be for you not for them. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Saintly types may choose to frame life in a way that doesnt allow for feeling aggrieved or resentful -everyone is only doing his or her best. A more earthly point of view may be to log the grievance and strive to set the balance straight. Every action has a to your reactions? LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Many cats it because all that agility and sleek down time for recuperation? Or is it that the dream life of a cat is so compelling that cats want to spend the majority of time there? Youll get more time than usual to indulge your feline needs to relax and dream. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Should you aim for the high risk, high competition option or go for the low hanging fruit? Start with the low hanging fruit, and while youre eating that you can decide how much life you are willing to trade to go for that juicy morsel at the top -the one gravity, to taste. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). In some way, you feel you must act to win your own respect over and over. This attitude keeps you from producing results, but it could also tire you out if youre not careful. This week, dare to say, enough is enough and take some time to relax -to stop having to prove yourself and just be. SCORPIO Adventure is a state of mind. You may not travel far and wide, meet fascinating new people or experience foreign cultures and customs this week, but you will do the truly adventurous thing -face the life you know so well with curiosity, boldness and a willingness to be changed by all you learn. SAGITTARIUS Its the tendency of human behavior to assume that others are pretty much believing and doing just as you are. Youll go against that tendency as you realize the novelty of your choices. Truly you are working on youll celebrate that. CAPRICORN anything you dont know much about. But once you dig in and get some knowledge on a matter, youll get a better understanding of what your level of involvement and enthusiasm could be. So before you decline offers or rule out possibilities, do a little research. AQUARIUS Accountability helps people keep the sanctity their word. Its why most marriage ceremonies happen in the presence of witnesses. When making agreements this week, bring several parties into the deal, if only to provide the social accountability that will encourage all to participate as intended. PISCES someone to bounce your ideas and work off of. Get a second, third and forth opinion. The more opinions you hear, the better youll be at knowing which ones to apply. Also, your skin will get a bit thicker in this process. Thicker skin is one of the folks like you to succeed. of accepting someone elses limiting yourself this year. This month brings a new set of friends. It will be fun later to tell the story of how you found each other. Youll inspire others in May. Theres a learning endeavor and get all the way to the part where you make money in July. The special people in your life start to behave differently toward you because of the positive changes you make in September.

Understanding that the Boy Scouts of America is committed to a dialogue on its membership standards at the local and national levels and is listening to varying perspectives and concerns in the development of information for presentation to its National Executive Board, the undersigned feel that issues regarding membership standards should be determined at the local level. The City of Gulfport opposes discrimination in all forms, and as such opposes the present policy that discriminates on the basis of sexual orientation. The National Council at their National Annual Meeting in May of this year should take action that would lift this national ban, but not reverse it, allowing each troop to decide for itself; adopting a national policy to allow individual packs and troops to establish their own non-discrimination policy.

36 Gabber March 28 April 3, 2013 Somethin on my mind Somethin on my mindBy Bill Northr op B_Northr op@theGabber. com Internet Cafes. A Matter of Price? I was shocked a couple of weeks ago when the big crack down/close down happened, but I was surprised by the wholehearted support the move got from the political class. Yeah. I know both political parties were and are embarrassed that they took gobs of money from organizations fronting for Allied Veterans of the World, the supposed charity that was behind most of the operations. That embarrassment is deserved if only that either. However, it was like overnight that what was legal became illegal and everyone was against it. Feds and the state moved in and announced Internet Cafes are really gambling you pay for the use of a computer supposedly to play games and earn some points and sometimes gifts and sometime participate in a sweepstakes. Of course, the games are really gambling games, not skill games, but games of chance, and you get paid for winning. Duh! Again, "surprise, surprise" as old Gomer Pyle used to say. The big hit was that the so-called handing out only a fraction of the money they raised, but getting all the bennies one gets as a charity. Still, The real emphasis should be on how to monitor charities to make certain they are, indeed, charities, and not job centers for people with clever not turned on by gambling. At best, always a costly bit of entertainment. The house always wins. I used to be really opposed to organized, regulated at which I lose my money. Which brings me back to the Cafes. Why can I visit the Hard Rock Cafe, or Indian Casinos, or the horse racing or dog track, or place my money down on the state run lottery, a strip mall and use a computer to the difference between this and the wide spread sports betting that the odds for professional games. As for the Internet Cafes, there was a legislative bill a couple of years ago that sought to regulate and tax the of a sudden the games are banned and people are in jail. Why did the games exist all this time with little organized opposition? Maybe the political contributions helped. Maybe these were the payoffs, so to speak. Maybe there were other factors. Just maybe this is about competition and protection of the existing legalized structure. How much money goes into whose pockets from the legal industry? Does it make a difference and did it make a difference here? In fairness, some law enforcement agencies have consistently complained about the cafes and some legislators have been point now. that the Cafes, if legalized, are potential tax sources, not to mention job sources, just like the other games? And, maybe there are some other games that could be added. I was in Japan once where they play a game called Pachinko, a name taken pretty much from the sounds the games machine with ball bearings cascading down the face, hitting pins, releasing more balls (or not hitting pins) and the more balls you get the higher the score. The noise is overwhelming as well as mesmerizing. The places are packed although cash payouts are illegal. The trick is that you get a token, walk outside, and cash in at some hole-in-the-wall a few doors down. Anyway, it would go over big here and would be a good complement to the Internet Cafes, if ruinous for your hearing. The argument that we need to curtail gambling in the state, reminds me of the old story about the a million dollars, would you go to bed "What do you think I am? A whore". price." Whats on your mind?

44 Gabber March 28 April 3, 2013 By Chelsea Tatham Almost two years ago, while trying to arrest a man. He has jumped fences to catch people and seen the results of gruesome violence. He was even at the front of the house where a man being served a warrant murdered two fellow St. Petersburg patrols the streets of District St. Petersburg bound by Central Avenue to the north and 34th Street South to the west. He spends much of his time in Midtown. Midtown is torn by a struggle between "people who want to make their community better and those Geil, a six-year veteran of the police department who was born and raised in St. Petersburg. He is concerned about the impact the closing of the Sweetbay supermarket will have on a community that the city and community leaders spent millions of dollars and countless hours trying to revitalize. That revitalization GTE Credit Union and improvements or restoration to Midtown landmarks like the Manhattan Casino, Royal Theater and Carter G. Woodson African American History Museum. Geil is worried that the closing of Sweetbay will be a step back in the revitalization process. After the Sweetbay opened, he noticed a small decline in the number of people just hanging out. It is important for any community to have family-owned businesses, he said, but many smallbusiness owners in Midtown dont shoo away loiterers for fear of losing business. Having the majority of a community be small, corner invites loitering and crime, he said. And it makes the place look bad. Despite seeing all the problems in the neighborhood-Geil has learned to separate from the negativity and has found what he calls hidden gems within Midtown. One of his hangout spots is the Duncan McClellan Glass studio and gallery studio and gallery, part of a warehouse district-turned arts mecca, features many national and international artists and works like vases, sculptures, pottery and giant insects made of metal and colored glass. Owner Duncan McClellan is proud packing plant transformed into a space for art. McClellan is known nationwide for his galleries parties, dinners and art exhibits at his studio and welcomes the police who patrol the neighborhood. Im thankful for their service in the area, McClellan said. They are always welcomed here. Another gem, Geil says, is one of the oldest cemeteries in St. Petersburg. The Greenwood Cemetery, on the corner of Martin Luther King Jr. Street South and graves dating back to the the entrance is a Civil War memorial where Union and Confederate soldiers are buried side by side. The original keepers of the cemetery, the Cunninghams, were all born in the late cemetery in a large granite tomb. In the middle of the cemetery near the family graves is a tall statue of the Virgin Mary as a headstone. Engraved on the bottom is the phrase The spirit shall return unto God who gave it. cemetery waiting for calls. I have some friends, some to do ghost hunts in here, Geil said. Geil said there are people who have been born and raised in this area who are stuck in their ways and dont want their lives or their community to change. But he said there are many community members who work hard to keep their community improving. During his years as an says, he has seen things that could have made him lose was hard for him not to take home his work experiences. But he has grown as both says, and now he is able to separate duty and home life. Police ofcer knows rough spots, hidden gems of Midtown Business F eatur e Story $250. Service Business Car d $31.25.
