No. 2312 May 30 June 5, 2013 Gulfport Police Investigate Suspicious DeathBy Cathy Salustri Shortly after 5 p.m. last night, Gulfport police responded to what Gulfport Detective Hanh Pham called a suspicious death at 5802 Gulfport Boulevard. Richard Cummins, 61, was found by his roommate, Zachary Logwood. Detective Hanh Pham told the Gabber that several factors led to Gulfport Police and the Pinellas County treating the death as suspicious." See Police, page 8 It Doesnt Take a Category 5 By Shelly Wilson What do you think is the biggest threat to the Tampa Bay Area during hurricane season? Is it the rain? The storm surge? Category 5 winds? The answer is none of the above. You can haggle over statistics, but according to Pinellas County Public Information Specialist Tom Iovino, likely the biggest threat to you, your family and your home this season is not a storm. Its complacency. The Tampa Bay area has not had a direct hit from a hurricane since 1921. And if youve lived here for very long, no doubt youve heard all of the reasons: were in a naturally sheltered area; its something to do with the currents; its ancient Indian protection. See Ready, page 34The Evolution of SoStudio By Cathy Salustri After three years, So49 has bridged the art gap between 49th Street and Gulfports arts district, at least for one weekend. The SoStudio Tour, which spanned two days over the Memorial Day holiday, branched out from working studios along 49th Street to the citys historic arts district downtown. That was largely due to go with wanted to see happen, Andrea Royce, vice president of the 49th Street South business association, So49, said Saturday. This year it took on a whole new life. While locals and tourists have long thought of Gulfports Beach Boulevard as a place for the arts, See SoStudio, page 6 Grace, an intuitive artist, explains her technique as part of a live demonstrations at this weekends SoStudio Tour. Grace demonstrated her art at the Longhouse. While artists like Grace, shown in the photo, demonstrated their art in local businesses like the Longhouse, some, like Holly Harriman, preferred to display their artwork.

6 Gabber May 30 June 5, 2013 SoStudio, from front pageSo49s SoStudio tour brought awareness to Gulfport artists working in other areas of the city. In past years the tour focused on small studios in private homes as well as showings in So49 businesses. For the third annual tour, which now marks the start of summer for many Gulfportians, So49 featured artists in 19 locations, including the Beach Boulevard Industrial Arts Center Gulfport Merchants Association (GMA) co-sponsored the event, covering the cost of booklet printing. the event: the IACG, the GMA, So49, and City of Imagination/Gulfport Arts Center. The studio tour created an informal arts path tying the 49th Street district to downtown, with studios, City of Imagination/Gulfport Arts Center and Alley of the Arts along the way from one area to the next. The partnership sprang from working relationships between downtown artists and the businesses in So49. Although the GMA focuses on Beach and Shore Boulevard and So49 on businesses along 49th Street, local artists came together for this event. I saw it as a really positive interaction, Owen Pach, vice president of the Gulfport Merchants, president and resident artist of the IACG said. Thats the way it should be. We need to work together.

8 Gabber May 30 June 5, 2013 Police, from front page [The] nature of the crime scene lots of blood inside the house, and the roommate came home, found the body, and did not know what happened to the deceased led to this decision to proceed as though the home could be a crime scene, Detective Pham said, although police could not say whether or not the death was accidental, from natural causes, or something more sinister. A suspicious death does not mean murder. When we label something as a suspicious death, its more or less because the cause has yet to be determined and theres signs at the scene that we havent been able to rule the death as an accident or natural until [theres] further investigation. If something doesnt appear natural at the time, we consider it suspicious, Detective Pham explained. An autopsy will determine whether or not there was foul play involved. forensics department processed the scene and the county medical examiner will perform an autopsy to determine the cause of death, which remains under investigation.

26 Gabber May 30 June 5, 2013 By Holiday Mathis Venus glides into emotional Cancer this week with treats for relationships that she parcels out like goodie bags of her past solutions were too shallow -like goodie bags stuffed with candy and cheap plastic toys, stuff you really dont need. This time around, go for simple, wholesome choices, and avoid the shallow and unnecessary answers that will ultimately complicate your life. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Who needs external sources of entertainment when you have such a rich fantasy life? Dreaming is productive, especially when you dream in detail. Whether waking or asleep, there is power in your imaginings. Write down your visions, and solutions in these mental sprees. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Youll who usually plays that role for you. This doesnt mean youll be stoic or out by showing your feelings when the other person is closed off to emotion, or by providing a voice of reason to the other persons irrationality. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). How you talk to yourself inside your head is more important than the events going on in your life. For now, its better to work on trying to see the bright side than trying to change the weather of your circumstances. The weather has its own agenda. If youre relentlessly positive, that agenda will be no match for you. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Whats going on behind the scenes is distracting you whether or not you consciously even know what it is. You off topic in conversation or drifting away from the work youre supposed to be doing. The way back to your purpose is through addressing the elephant in the room. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). What do you do when the winds of fate offer to give you a ride, but you dont really like the direction they are headed? Put down your sail. Lay low. Let them blow over. When things calm down, you can put up your sail again and steer your vessel toward the destination you were aiming for in SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Relationships cant be forced into a better place, but they perhaps can be coaxed, humored or tempted to go there. Relationships can, however, be forced toward stiffness, weirdness and awkwardness. So take it easy. Relax, and the whole world relaxes with you -or at least the easygoing ones! SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You never want to be so consumed with your own desires and interests that you cant see the big picture. Thats why you keep assertive people around you and remain open to their opinions. Doing what they want to do a few times this week will give you the edge of a boosted perspective. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Approaching a new group of people is always daunting no matter how socially adept you may be. Your brave heart will have you moving into circles of people you know nothing about. The adventure of it brings on such an adrenaline rush that your experiences this week could set a tone for future behavior. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You have a healthy sense of wonder, and youre willing to entertain the other side of an argument. But dont buy into ideas that rub against your intuitive knowledge of what is correct. The omens suggest there will be rewards for open-mindedness, but dont bend over at the same time lest your brain tumbles out. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The friends who tempt and intrigue you make it harder to be good, but consider this: We have to keep company with supposedly bad characters if we are to survive and not succumb to mental atrophy. People of good character, so called, are the ones who end up boring us to death. -Thomas Bernhard ARIES (March 21-April 19). Attitude is everything. Too bad changing your attitude also happens to be one of the hardest things to do. Its mostly a process of letting go of ego, fear and a negative story. The steady climb of your good attitude this week is something to really celebrate. Over time, positivity will absolutely change your life. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). A keen intellectual energy pushes you along this week. Youll be so clearheaded, in fact, that it will feel like you can solve the toughest problems by just thinking them through. Also, youll do twice the mental work you usually do in half the time. By the weekend, youll need to recharge with mindless fun. This Week's Birthdays: Listen to your mind. Your birthday gift from the universe is a thought translator with which you can break your consciousness into categories of helpful and unhelpful. Youll have many realizations and will begin a process of knowing and accepting yourself on deeper levels. new inner organization and calm. As the year progresses, its easier for you to make money, build fortifying bonds and take care of yourself. You will truly come into your own.

She remembered her her 4th grade teacher, Mrs. Danette Valenti, recently talking about veterans. She approached two color Guard veterans at the next table, who are from the Gulfport Post, and thanked them for their service to our country then gave them a snappy salute. Not many current American elementary school students were ever exposed with her mother in her home country, the Republic of South Ossetia, when neighboring Republic of Georgia brutally attacked on the opening night of the Olympics in China. Two bombs fell just 100 meters away from grandmother's house. She hopes that no children should ever have to endure that terrror.

They did this as a demonstration during the Summer Heat fundraiser. In a complement to the annual SoStudio tour over the Memorial Day weekend, the Industrial Arts Center of Gulfport (IACG) held a membership and fundraising drive. The weekend-long event included celebrity glass blowing, including a Mayors Cup blown by Gulfport mayor Sam Henderson (with help from resident artist Owen Pach). The city manager, Jim OReilly, and Gulfport Merchants Association President Mike McCue also tried their hand at the hot, delicate craft. The celebrities donated their pieces to the IACG, which the Resident Artist Owen Pach also picked people out of the crowd to try their hand at glass work, and well-known glass caster Susan Gott demoed her work and donated two pieces to the center. Other artists gave demonstrations as well. Mike Hanson, studio coordinator, Jeff Green, studio tech, Emma McMahon, silent auction coordinator, and volunteer Kenny Toombs coordinated the event. The IACG needs more volunteers like these people; to help out, please call Owen Pach at 320-4051.

Working with a hand-picked cast and crew last yearincluding such notable locals as Stone Handy, Rob McCabe, Ian Tracey, & Shawnna Savani schork created a rose for cecile, a romantic suspense thriller aboutas schork puts itscary people. Our big achievement last year, schork remembers fondly, was that we took care of each other. Theres some incumbent stress built into an event such as this, and we never let that affect the way we treated each other. This year Ciara Carinci is joining the party. The longtime Gulfport designer and theatre producer is eager to try her hand at exercising her own cinematic vision. Tracey, Handy and McCabe plan to return, should expect to see some local landmarks as well. Assignments will be handed out Friday, July 26th, at 7 p.m., in Tampa; Schork and Carinci expect to have their plots worked out during the ride home. Shooting will commence Saturday, July 27th, with the projects completed and delivered by 7 p.m. Sunday, July 28th. All entries will be screened several days later at the Muvico Cineplex in Ybor.

We overslept. District Two Commissioner Jim Parent, about the late start Were a very friendly group. District One Commissioner Lorraine Huhn, to Commissioner Parent There are a number of small, medium and large lots that have been vacant It would be really nice with all the money spent on these little improvements to think about tourists, who bring the money[and get some] free public parking. John Michael If you guys remember, bath salts were the thing that that man was high on when he ate the face off that man I am not going to take out a weapon unless I feel I have to kill somebody. Deb Edney, about bath salts left on her porch and the fear it inspired in her and her perception that the Pinellas County joked and did not take her concerns seriously. Were asking residents to voluntarily limit usage to maybe two days a week. City Manager reclaimed water in Pinellas County I also want to encourage planning to look into PACE. I know Gulfport [has PACE]. Commissioner Parent, about a program that allows property owners to borrow money against the value of their homes to make environmentally appropriate improvements. About parking issues on St. Pete Beach: The beach was crowded this weekend I am also aware that the Sheriff was very busy it seems like this has been a change from what we had before. Maybe our police were enforcing parking than they were doing other stuff, which Im not crazy about prioritization but I just wonder if on big weekends is there some other way we can augment coverage of parking? Commissioner Parent, about how the city could best handle parking issues in residential areas during peak times. Theres no doubt that theres no cars were getting more parking money than ever. City Manager Melinda put it well: we need to think strategically about this. Commissioner Parent There are some retired people around who might want a couple of bucks. I know I dont get a big enough allowance. Commissioner Parent, about hiring extra parking help during peak times. I dont see our beach use going down anytime soon.

There will never be another Katrina or Andrew. often the most destructive forces in a storm. A cubic yard of water weighs nearly a ton and, says Iovino, will sweep you off of your feet.

And thats exactly the point Iovino came to make at last Thursdays Hurricane Seminar at the Hickman Theater in Gulfport. In his lively hour presentation, Iovino did not discuss hurricane shutters, evacuation routes or how much water to have on hand. He did not discuss generators or canned food or batteries. Those things are for people who know that they need them; instead, Iovino focused on getting us there. Iovinos presentation, Does it take a Category 5?, was a chilling reminder of the damage that all hurricanes and even no-name and tropical storms can cause. Part history lesson, part scare tactic, the presentation used pictures and statistics to prove that if youre waiting for the big one, youre missing the point. Storms do unpredictable things, Category 1 Sandys destruction last fall. Particularly in the early season and the late season. Dont think a Category one cant do damage. Past storm damage, and even the accurate indicators of what a storm can do, Iovino warned. Tracking technology has come a long way, but predictions about the intensity of a storm and its local effects are imperfect. Sadly, Iovino noted, many people dont realize that every storm is a singular threat. Many people in Katrina remembered Camille, he said, and they died because they didnt take the right steps to protect themselves. Its just better safe than sorry, cautioned Iovino. If you evacuate, and the storm doesnt come, be thankful, he said. When you came here tonight and you put on your seatbelt, were you sorry you didnt get in an accident?

From the Desk of Sheriff Bob GualtieriHurricane Preparedness Be prepared! That is our overriding message to all Pinellas County residents this month. If you have not yet taken time to make a safety plan with your family, we urge you to do so. While we can assure you that law enforcement is here to assist you in any way possible in getting through the emergency, knowledge and prior preparation on your part can make the difference in keeping you and your loved ones safe in the event of a storm. Heres how you can get started: Pinellas County Emergency Management has developed a webpage with a series of tips and resources on surviving the storm. The checklist includes: Know Your Zone In order to know when to evacuate for evacuation zone of your residence is. This will help you to determine if you can stay; or must go in order to Prepare Ahead This means develop a plan of action for your family, where to meet, where to go. Prepare and protect your home and your business from the oncoming storm. Pack your personal emergency survival kit, to include important papers. Know what to buy and what to stock to get through the days after the storm. Special Needs Remember preparations for the elderly and those with special needs rest primarily with families and caregivers. Pet PreparednessPlan ahead for the safety of your animals. Shelters Consider your options on where to stay: with relatives or friends; a hotel; or a temporary shelter. Putting Your Survival Plan into ActionWatch the forecast. After the Storm Assess damages, follow food and water safety guidelines, stay informed about road closures and other emergency instructions. In the event of an impending storm, evacuation orders. Leave sooner, rather than later. Do not wait until its too late to get out safely. Resist complacency. In addition to enforcing evacuation orders, we, along with other law enforcement agencies will be involved in directing safety. Be patient. Know in advance roads will be congested. By the time the storm hits, all citizens should be at a safe location and take cover until it has passed. Please be aware that during the storm law enforcement and emergency services also must take cover when sustained winds reach a certain point. Following the storm, damages will be assessed; roads and bridges will be checked prior to allowing for direction on how to proceed. As Sheriff, it is part of my constitutional responsibilities to authorize re-entry into the county and to the Barrier Islands once it is safe to do so. Also, post-storm our focus will shift to security, from enforcing curfews to controlling civil disobedience may also be called upon to assist in search and rescue or search and recovery efforts. Citizens should know that the own preparedness for a hurricane response. We conduct training exercises regularly and work closely with County Emergency Management Services to maintain our skill and readiness.

36 Gabber May 30 June 5, 2013 Somethin on my mind Somethin on my mindBy Bill Northr op B_Northr op@theGabber. com Declaring the War OverYou may be surprised to know that the war on terror is over. As President Obama said in his latest foreign policy speech, This war, like all wars, must end." Well, maybe it does and maybe it doesn't. Certainly we can't just declare it over. The other side has to agree unless we're talking surrender. The irony is that we were never at war with anyone. We were attacked before 9/11 and after by a group known as Al Qaeda. This is not a "state or nation" group, but an organization now representing radical Islam to apply one phrase. Not that it or its many proponents consider themselves the radical element. From what I read and understand, the Al Qaedans (my word) consider themselves representatives of the way the world should be: totally Muslim. Death to There's no tolerance, there's no compromise, there are no negotiations. There is only murder for all who oppose or disagree. It's an all or nothing proposition. It's an idea propelled by a powerful religion that is subscribed to by an estimated 1.5 billion people only a fraction of whom subscribe to the radical path. They, too, are victims of the radicals although many might sympathize with some aspects of the jihadists to use another name sometimes associated with the movement. Anyway, our "war" version came about because we attacked countries who accommodated the extremists (another handy word) Afganistan, then run by the Taliban an Al Qaeda sympathizing group. Worries about weapons of mass destruction owned by Iraq, another aider and abettor of Al Qaeda, led us into that country. These are the wars we are really weary of. The problem is that "ending" these wars doesn't end anything. On a small scale, the Boston Marathon bombing and beheading of a British soldier in London last week tells us this. I also suspect that changing the Obama drone strike policy to kill fewer civilians won't do much good either. My point: the "war" is going to go on with or without us. We can't retire from it. We're a target. It might be fought in individual or street battles, it might be fought economically or diplomatically (diplomatically with whom?). Certainly, the side war with Christianity goes on independently of Al Qaeda. There's also the internal, active and violent wars within the Muslim faith (Shia vs Sunni), as well as the wars within the Muslim nations themselves. Again this is against the West. However, President Obama is correct in implying that we need a new strategy. Former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld noted a an idea, not a military. Yet, having a strong, effective military that we are unafraid to use is essential to the "idea" idea. Perception of strength is critical in the world of ideas. So is energy independence which provides an economic weapon however resented that will be. So is world leadership. A Morrocan acquaintance (a Christian who lives in the U.S.), argued that the Arab countries have to sort themselves out and that it might take a long time. We should provide foreign aid to whomever is in power. Unfortunately, we didn't have time to continue the conversation, but I suspect he would have provided some exceptions to his case. Nor, did we get a chance to address the world's expectation that we ultimately are the world's policeman. I often get the impression that the so-called "world opinion" likes to have it both ways: don't use your power except when we call for it in our own interests. Certainly, Afghanistan and Pakistan want us to be on hand so they can use our weapons, manpower, and power when they need it. While we search for a new strategy and hone our ideas to be used against theirs, count on more terrorism collectively and individually. Maybe we won't send in the soldiers. Maybe we'll have to rely on the local "wellarmed militia". Whats on your mind? Email your opinion to: B_Northrop@theGabber.com

Become a Donor Employees at the Pinellas County up with Donate Life Florida this month to make Floridians aware of the life-saving role they can play by registering as an organ, tissue and eye donor. April is National Donate Life Month, and tax collector employees are participating in the annual Donate Life Challenge, a monthlong effort among tax collectors and the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles to promote awareness of Floridas organ donor registry. Tax collector employees help register potential organ donors by asking all driver license customers if they would like to join the registry. Last years Donate Life Challenge led to more than 66,000 new donor registrations throughout Florida. Floridas organ registry recently reached a milestone of 7 million registrants. It is the second largest state registry in the nation, which gives hope to families of patients like 10-year-old Hope Kienle, who received a liver transplant before she reached age 2. Although my husband and I were both registered organ donors, we didnt give much thought to organ donation until Hope was 64 days old, said Hopes mom, Amy Kienle. That was the day we found out she may need a liver transplant. We dont know much about Hopes organ donor, but we feel like they are part of our family. Their loved one saved our Hope. More than 4,500 Floridians currently await organ transplants, and more than 118,000 patients are on the nationwide list. Florida offers four simple ways to register as an organ, tissue or eye donor. at www.DonateLifeFlorida.org. online at www.GoRenew.com. 1-877-35-SHARE (1-877-357-4273).

42 Gabber May 30 June 5, 2013 Industrial Arts Center of Gulfport Bids Artist-in-Residence FarewellBy Cathy Salustri Im going back to Gulfport, 22-year-old glassblower Mia Shea Williams says while shes of coffee to brew. Theres so many opportunities here. The recent Eckerd college graduate and the Industrial Arts Center of artist-in-residence (not to be confused with resident artist Owen Pach) needs to pack up some things coffee, and hit the road. Shes headed on a road then to parts north. She started blowing glass as part of an independent study at Eckerd College in January 2011. Just over two years later, she found herself honored by Owen and the IACG. Owen says he knew of Williams but didnt know her work; when he saw it, he asked her Mia Shea Williams, 22, has an impressive glass portfolio, perfected at Zen Glass and, more recently, the IACG. Here, she talks about her feminine form work, a predominant theme in her work. The recent Eckerd College graduate says she wants to work in Hawaii as a yoga teacher and also continue to blow glass, although she says she wants to return to Gulfport as well. For us, it was an opportunity to move in the right direction, he says. Were promoting this as a teaching facility. Mia told him she didnt feel but agreed to work in residence and create pieces at the IACG. For her, the path shes found herself on differs dramatically than her earlycollege plans for her life. In high school, I knew I was artistic but I wasnt focused on it, she says I was focused on psychology and alternative medicine. When she signed on for an independent study blowing glass at Zen Glass in St. Petersburg, she didnt do so with a career as an artist in mind. Her grandfather had just died and she says she thought, lets do something fun and creative. It turned out that she had a knack for glass, and even though she had everything breaks! she says), glass became her avocation. She landed a summer apprenticeship at the Glass Shack in Kauai, Hawaii that summer. There, she says, she studied under two guys who completely changed my perspective... when I came back I was more skillful. She worked for Zen to get more torch time and she started taking more advanced lampworking classes. She started turning out goddesses, many of which the arts community saw this past weekend at the SoStudio tour. All my work is really feminine. And it is: mermaids, winged ladies, and dancing goddesses. As with an artist-in-residency, shes leaving a piece with the IACG: a gnarled tree twisting into the graceful female form, which in turn gives grace back to the tree. Its not for sale, though, according to Owen. Its going in our permanent collection.

The total revenue amounted to $433,296 ($112,402 pool $302,025 Community center $18,869 misc/donations), meaning the community center had a cost recovery of 47.3%. Jennifer McMahon, the city has spent $541,263 and have brought in $318,827 in revenue, raising the cost recovery rate to 58.9% at the end of the second quarter. According to Ms. McMahon, the typical parks and recreation department has a cost recovery of 34%, but St. Pete Beach divides those two departments budgetarily. Factoring in the citys parks budget, St. Pete Beach has an overall cost recovery of roughly 30%. So were not too far off and with this years cost recovery increasing, that would put us above the national average, she says. My goal is to get us into the 70s % on cost recovery for the facility.

Call 727-328-7738 or visit www.petpalanimalshelter.com. Pet Pal Animal Shelter By Matthew Margolis Its Not Always a Picnic, Buster President Obama, like him or not, takes education seriously. And theres little mystery surrounding how that came to be. According to the president, Five days a week (my mother) came into my room at four in the morning, force-fed me breakfast and proceeded to teach me my English lessons for three hours before I left for school and she went to work. In response to her sons grumbling, his mother simply said, This is no picnic for me, either, buster. Educating your dog isnt always a picnic, either, but its worth it. No, hell never be president of the United States. But, among other perks, youll have a cleaner house, a longer-lasting other -the value of none of which should be underestimated. Consider the following letters from unhappy souls whose dogs did not receive a rigorous education: Roxie, my 14-month-old longhaired miniature dachshund, refuses to be potty trained. Although she goes outside and receives praise, she often just decides to pee or poop in the house. She knows she has done wrong, as she will go hide under a bed, but we cant seem to break her of this bad habit. Also, she is a barker and has not been taught to come. Read between the lines: Roxie didnt refuse; she wasnt taught. At this point, there is more than a years worth of urine in that house. Toy dogs should not be exempt from housebreaking. When it comes to bodily waste, a little goes a long way. Heres my issue: Nena, my 5-yearold German Shorthaired Pointer, chews up my girlfriends clothes. We have taken measures to ensure that all bedroom and bathroom doors are closed to prevent her from locating any clothes to destroy, but should we ever forget, she seizes the opportunity shreds. She particularly likes pajamas and underwear. This would be mildly amusing if the clothes werent expensive. My girlfriend is extremely frustrated with the dog and, consequently, with me. Im sure she is frustrated. Not only has her boyfriend not taught his dog boundaries, but apparently theyre all living in a house that contains no bureaus, dressers or closets with doors. We just got our puppy, Deuce, last week. He is an 8-week-old miniature dachshund, and he hates my husband. He bites hands and toes a lot, but especially my husbands. My husband is having a hard time connecting with Deuce and has almost given up on him. What can I advise my husband or myself to do differently in dealing with this biting and/or aggression issue? At 8 weeks old, theres hope for Deuce -assuming the husband can put in more than a solid weeks effort. They got their puppy last week, and hubbys ready to throw in the towel? People dont do their homework. They bring a dog home and have no idea what to do next. Then one day the dog violates their internalized standards for acceptable behavior, and its all his fault. He runs out the door! He chews up the furniture! He urinates inside! He licks my face! An 82-year-old woman recently called me and said she just got a 6-month-old Great Pyrenees. The pups weight is equal to the womans age, and she has a problem with his licking her face. She reprimands him, saying, You better trust me. Im your mother. I asked her what the Pyrenees had to say to that. He licked my face. Sounds about right.

Gabber May 30 June 5, 2013 47 Insurance Policies Need Preparation as Well A hurricane can bring tremendous devastation to homes, businesses, apartments, cars and many other structures. When this damage occurs, residents depend on insurance to help bring them back to normal. The problem is that many learn they have failed to get the right kind of policies after the damage is done and when they need protection the most. Thats why hurricane pre-season is the perfect time to review insurance policies to ensure coverage is both adequate and comprehensive. Some very important points to consider include: Read that policy. Sure, an insurance policy isnt a real page turner, but giving them a brief read over will reveal terms, as well as raise questions that coverage gaps to be discussed with an insurance agent. Start on the declaration page. Thats where your name and address are and usually the limits covered. If you read nothing else after that, read the exclusions! And watch for any special endorsement that excludes wind coverage. Ask your agent to explain any questions you have. most homeowners or renters policies have not covered damage from under the prevue of the National Flood Insurance Program at www. from the obvious damage of a rising drainage creeks, it also protects against storm surge. Another coverage homeowner policy, even if it covers sewer backup, will most likely have an exclusion if the sewer backup is when they are ordered until they are insurance at the last minute wont work. If you are located in a Flood Hazard Area, you may need to get could take some time. If you are not, there is still the application process which will take time. You may be insurance is, especially if you are not in a Flood Hazard Area! Wind is special. Hurricane or windstorm deductibles are not like the standard deductible on your policy. While there may be a smaller windstorm deductibles are typically a percentage of your homes value. This is done to help keep premiums low, but can add up to an expensive surprise when the time comes. A 5 percent deductible on a house valued at $200,000 can leave policy owners repairs. Getting to code. After a hurricane, if a home is damaged beyond a certain amount, the new structure will need to be rebuilt to current Florida building codes. While this may not be a problem for a home after 2001, it could be a considerable expense for a home built before that year. Law and ordinance coverage helps bring even older homes up to current code Cars need comprehensive. Basic auto coverage is required on all vehicles operated in the state of Florida. While these policies offer minimal coverage for auto accidents, other hazards such are covered under a comprehensive auto insurance policy. Renters need coverage, too. A landlord or property owner will have insurance on the structure that is being rented, but renters need coverage as well to protect their personal belongings. As with regular homeowners policies, most renter-s insurance coverage does difference in how quickly you can replace your possessions. Inventories are invaluable. While most homeowners can recall from memory the larger items in their homes, would they be able to catalog every item down to the smallest details? A quick home inventory done on a list or through photos or video can help tremendously after the disaster. A video or pictures on your tablet computer or smart phone will only take minutes. Capture what property. Also check with your agent to see if your insurance carrier offers replacement cost coverage on your contents. Otherwise, your structure may be covered to be rebuilt, but your contents may be depreciated by the insurance carrier. While insurance can replace items after the fact, it is not a substitute for taking steps to reduce a homes vulnerability to a hurricanes fury. Bracing garage doors, shuttering windows and stowing yard items before a storms winds are felt can mean the difference between minor damage and a total disaster. Also, your homeowner insurance cant protect people from injury due to Discuss with your agent the most effective way to present a claim, should a disaster strike. If many homes are damaged, know how your must evacuate, take your insurance policy with you. Have the claims emergency contact information with you. Most importantly, your home and priority is always to keep yourself and your family safe. Everything else can be replaced, you cant.
