26 Gabber June 6 June 12, 2013 By Holiday Mathis Last weeks new moon turned a fresh page in the cosmic diary. What to write? Even when theres much to look forward to, the tendency to use up a clean page rehashing past disappointments is all too tempting. Hopefully, the Leo moon midweek will bring enough dramatic fun to overshadow that temptation. Mars and Pluto square off to check our current course of action against the long-term consequences. GEMINI though you think its smart to say what people want you to say, a surge creative streak will prevent you from doing so this week. Instead, youll talk off the cuff about whats really on your mind and make some rather astute comments along the way. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Maybe there is more to your life than you thought. In fact, maybe there is more to life in general than you previously cared to imagine. You are willing to suspend your disbelief to entertain fantasies of other worlds. Therefore, the week will take on an element of energy. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You are Youre worthy of love regardless of what you achieve. Act because it feels right, not because you have something to prove. Also, note that an achievement doesnt have to be a record-breaking accomplishment in and worthy of celebration. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). No one can say for sure what can and cannot be. But you have a strong intuitive sense of what people are likely to do; therefore, you are able to predict the probable outcome of events. This predictive talent will serve you well this week. Act on your instincts, and youll be free of trouble and worry. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). ). Theres more out there that you could know and do. Soak up the information even if its not presented in the way youd prefer. Advice may sound like criticism, but theres still something valuable in it if you can get past the tone. This week provides endless opportunities to set aside your ego and be a student of life. SCORPIO People you know will be involved in intriguing activities that may have you thinking, I want to do that. Mentally factor in the considerable amount of time and energy involved. Do you really want to do that? It very well might take over your life, so be sure youre really excited about it before you embark. SAGITTARIUS Should the schoolteacher tell the students what will be on the test? Or should the students pay attention and try to learn everything being taught in the class and not just the bits that will be graded? Life will be like a classroom situation this week, and your teacher isnt going to point out whats on the test. CAPRICORN People are really listening to you your main message across. Keep it simple. Avoid the temptation to adopt the insider language of a group. Youre better off communicating in your own way. If you dont know the real meaning, dont say it. AQUARIUS You strive to go peacefully with the week you will feel at times like you are swimming upstream. Such an exercise is important for building emotional muscle tone. As in the case of the determined salmon, PISCES Compassion guides your choices. Your natural powers of empathy kick in, and its like you know what another person is going through, even though you couldnt possibly. learn for those who dont have much of it. Youre self-educated in this regard, and you picked the right school. ARIES too easy to miss important points about what you have if youre busy looking at what others have. To take advantage of all that your current the supposedly greener grass on the other side of the fence. Stay focused on your own backyard. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). What call doing what I want to do. Youll be in a position to make this distinction in regards to your own behavior. Just because you dont feel motivated to conform to what people expect of you doesnt mean you lack motivation in general. Your own projects are important, too! This Week's Birthdays: The next six weeks are a golden time for you, as cherish you. The proof is irrefutable. July sends you on a quest. August tightens relationships, and there are some important logistics to work out, too. Financially, September and November are the best months. Note: You can always reinvent in familiar settings. Thats why the new environment of September is an opportunity not to be missed!

Gabber June 6 June 13, 2013 31 Excerpts heard at the June 4. 2013Gulfport City Council MeetingPublic Comment & Council QuotesIt kind of brightens up the place, dont you think? Mayor Sam Henderson, about artwork adorning the walls of city council chambers. Boca Ciega High School students created the art. City staff is looking to partner [with Pinellas County Schools] to help some of these students develop independent living skills. City Manager Jim OReilly, about exceptional students at Hamilton Disston school. The city manager said this was a step towards showing the school board that Hamilton Disston remained a necessary and viable school. I dont believe that this is the intention of our generous city. Denise Lowe, who asked city council to review the Human Rights discriminates nationally, it must pay market rent to the city for the facilities it uses, regardless of its local policies. Id like to recognize the efforts of the local businesses. They have been more than cooperative. City Manager Jim OReilly, about the citys fake marijuana law Last year we got into a car accident because the guy who caused the accident did not see the stop sign because it was covered by palm trees. Jaylen McGuire, And theres more where theres palm trees covering stop signs. I would like you to cut them now. Jaylen McGuire Thanks, gentleman. Mayor Sam Henderson About the Boy Scouts of America and the local Cub Scouts disbanding To me its never been about the Boy Scouts or the LGBT community... its about Gulfport and what we believe in... Do we want Nazis in here? I dont think so. Margarete Tober, discriminate nationally but operate at a city facility for free because it allegedly discriminates outside city limits only. Were not evil people. This is Gulfport, we get along... My viewpoints, different opinions do not mean I am wrong. Mark Grantham makes a good point about coming together to work things out, we do need to address the rental policy and look at tightening up the HRO. And I am not against gays and am just as upset that the national group will not allow gay adults. But I come from a different place, a different history. A different family. And my opinion is going to be different. Im not against gay people at all... the collateral damage from the Scout Hall debate was belonged at the national level, it never should have been in Gulfport. Judy Ryerson and Mary Atkinson, God bless their souls, worked their entire lives to make scouting in Gulfport open and available to everyone. This is a slap in the face, [to] the legacy that they left for the citizens of Gulfport. Imagine how this makes their families feel, or all the children who were positively impacted by scouting in Gulfport over these many years. Scouting is and always has been an integral thread in the fabric of our identity in our community. The thing is, there was an alternative. The decision was made to battle. The thing is, though, there was an alternative. Why not challenge the national origin. Instead the decision was made to battle fellow citizens and neighbors in Gulfport, knowing full well that it would be the children on the losing end. Everything that makes us a community included the Boy Scouts. Some are celebrating now that the deep roots of boy scouting in Gulfport have been ripped from the soil of our rich community garden. That blood is on your hands. Rallying and organization could have had far-reaching implications, but instead, just to prove a point, it was decided to purposefully and methodically destroy a vital part of our community and our history that we hold close. Fighting and working to annihilate a program that positively impacts innocent young boys is far from a noble cause. They are just children. And yet you call me a coward. Ward Two Councilmember Christine Brown The reality of it is, they had four members. It wasnt like 25 people packed up their bags and left. Things maybe could have been handled different from both sides. Unfortunately the Boy Scouts left because no one wanted to be part of the Boy Scouts anymore. Ward Four Councilmember Michael Fridovich About Paying $200 for the Gulfport Trolley in the PRIDE Parade We had offered that previously and they had said no. Mayor Sam Henderson. According to Mayor Sam Henderson, Gulfport offered the free use of its city trolley in the annual PRIDE promenade at PRIDEs request. PRIDE, he said, later opted not to use the city trolley. At Tuesday nights meeting, city council learned that to have the trolley in the promenade, it would have to pay $200 to be in the parade. Its a way to advertise us.. its the least expensive way. Ward Three Councilwoman Jennifer Salmon

34 Gabber June 6 June 12, 2013 Somethin on my mind Somethin on my mindBy Bill Northr op B_Northr op@theGabber. com IRS BustedThe Internal Revenue Service has been caught cheating on your taxes. OK maybe not your taxes. It's our taxes. Taxpayer's taxes. That's not quite it either. No, it's about tax exemptions those people who don't have to pay taxes. No, that's not it either. It's about tax exemptions while denying tax opposed to higher taxes, Obamacare, Obama himself, or are interested in Along the way, it singled out people of similar attitudes for tax audits and even called in other federal agencies to take a look at these suspicious people. Also along the way, they conferences. But that's just money. The issues, of course, are deeper than that: a federal enforcement agency is targeting political groups which are critical of the government. It goes along with the Justice Department's extraordinary surveillance and intimidation (by threatening espionage charges) of the media to press. Of course, that doesn't include the leaks that the administration itself has made. That a major target was a Fox news reporter is another facet of the inquiry given that the administration has declared from time to time that Fox is the enemy. However, back to the tax issue. What's the big deal about tax exemptions? Why should anyone get a tax exemption? Supposedly, it's a common good thing or social welfare and so forth. Can't be for political purposes, however. Or, at least most of it has to be non-political: like churches who can't participate in politics but do anyway, indirectly, morally, free speech and all that. OK. It's least, the IRS has to be unbiased and unpolitical. My question is: should they be put in that position at all? Why give any tax exemptions? Churches on up or down, if you prefer. Just get out of the tax exemption business altogether. Get out of the tax deduction business altogether. In other words, from the with the government at all; and from the government standpoint, don't offer exemptions at all. Separation of state and churches and all causes, let's call it. That would be a start in hacking federal tax code. Then, move on from exemption to exceptions. Don't think there aren't inequities everywhere. The federal income tax code has been used for social engineering ever engineering seemed reasonable at the time, but as time changed the code didn't. It only grew and grew and grewuntil we're up to the giants at the top of the beanstalk. Time to chop that beanstalk down. That's one solution. Here's another one. Do away with the IRS. Of course you can't do that and still collect taxesunless you adopt what is known as the FairTax. That is a proposal made several years ago by a group headed by a former Georgia congressman John Linder and a radio quit the radio business and now works advocating the FairTax. It's a serious proposition and it took less than 200 pages to explain it. It does away with the IRS because it does away with the federal income, Social Security and Medicare, business and estate taxes. It substitutes these with a consumption tax collected, like sales taxes, at the point of transaction. It would be in the neighborhood of all the taxes of people and business are dropped, prices of goods drop that) and the tax would be on that. Lower income people would actually receive a monthly federal check to offset the non-progressive nature of the tax. Buy the book or get it at the library. It's an easy read. There are actually two books. One that explains it and one that answers the critics. tax code drastically; you don't have doing business; it encourages savings; it taxes more those who spend more; it would be revenue neutral. It is not without critics. Some say the math doesn't work out; others think higher earners get a bigger break. Whatever. It has to be more equitable, fairer, or more honest than a code Whats on your mind? Email your opinion to: B_Northrop@theGabber.com DAV ID R.

38 Gabber June 6 June 12, 2013 Mastering the Marina: Council Considers Plans for Revamping the Marina This is councils opportunity; we want to hear what you want to see Manager Jim OReilly said at the start of councils workshop last week. The entire workshop dealt with future plans for revamping the Gulfport Municipal Marina. Now, were talking about the marina lifestyle, Harbormaster Denis Frain said. He and Community Development Director Fred Metcalf spoke to council, Mr. Metcalf explaining that although he presented ideas brought forth by the community, he presented them only to prime the pump for councils ideas. He cautioned the council to try and see the big picture rather than focus on the mechanics. Ideas included creating a multi-use space for the different clubs in the marina area (with input from those clubs), public kayak and catamaran launch space, a better bike and pedestrian path between the marina, the downtown, and the county bike trail. Christine Brown, the Ward Two councilperson, came prepared with a display. We have to have a vision before we can move forward, she said, using boxes to outline her plan for the marina, which included a small onestory hotel (elevated off the ground by one level) with balconies that look north and south, themed in a Key West style. Its a boutique hotel; its not like council. We need this if were going to enhance the marina. She posited that instead of building the hotel, the city lease the land to a third party who would then build and run the hotel. We dont even have to put any money into it, she said. She also said the city should build a lighthouse restaurant on the property, built and leased in the same manner as the boutique hotel. and an observation deck on the third Tiki hut and a pool. She also suggested the city build a three-story observation tower that looked like a water tower, lit with to boaters. Her suggestions also included a new sailing center where perhaps the clubs currently leasing land by the marina would want to move, although she said that wasnt necessary to build the sailing center. Her ideas also included tying the theme to other areas of Gulfport, including Clymer Park and the beach. It doesnt make sense to do anything here, she said, gesturing at her marina-box-display, unless were going to think about what were doing down here. I dont want to change the character of the community, [but] do you ever watch That Seventies Show? Thats what our beach looks like, she commented, saying she wanted to update the look of the beach. Her ideas to do that included an eight-foot wide sidewalk that allowed for easier movement up and down the beach. She also suggested remodeling the bathrooms on the beach to make them less obvious, adding benches and She also suggested adding amenities like a ferris wheel and merry-goround on the beach. We need to have something more than a meal on Gulfport beach, she said. Lets bring the people in for the experience rather than the meal. The whole waterfront, she added has to be an experience. Ward Four Councilman Michael Fridovich said he liked some of her ideas but thought the hotel should be a bit larger. I like the idea of making it a destination, but it needs to be four stories, he told Councilwoman Brown. I would call it Coney Island, Gulfport-style. Its pretty cool, Vice Mayor Dan Liedtke said. I dont know of any hurricane-proof ferris wheels, though. You know, theres no reward if theres no risk, she said. He also pointed out that the hotel, if it went to six stories, would afford people a view of the Gulf of Mexico. He said he wanted to add picnic and grilling facilities, a generator that would allow the marina to still pump gas in the advent of a disaster. Councilman Fridovich suggested reprising the trolley to allow for loops between the marina and other areas of the city. Other ideas included enhancing transient docks, changing the docks I hope were not putting the cart before the horse... I think these are great dreams to have, Ward Three Councilwoman Jennifer Salmon said, pointing out that the trolley didnt have the ridership it needed in the past. The more amenities you put in, the more people are going to come, Harbormaster Denis Frain said later in the meeting. Councilwoman Salmon also said she didnt want to build anything on the point (Osgood Point) and didnt feel the water tower was appropriate. A water tower is great in the midwest, but its not really the right metaphor for a marina, she said, suggesting adding it to the Coast Guard Auxiliary building and did not want the sign to light up. It could... say Congratulations, Mr. and Mrs., Councilwoman Brown commented, building on her idea that the marina hotel/banquet hall would be a destination for weddings. I worked in the Poconos in Pennsylvania. I know all about wedding places and what can happen, she said. Mayor Sam Henderson agreed with Councilwoman Browns idea of retaining the towns character. He did express concern about homes in the area losing their view. I just want to keep that in mind, he said, saying he liked her idea of a small hotel and the restaurant being one building. He also endorsed her ideas of tying in the marina to downtown. Weve certainly got room for some competition, in the lodging area, he said. The mayor also suggested the city look at allowing or creating the opportunity for a multi-city water taxi issue. As council discussed these ideas in a workshop format, they could not vote. The city will have to dredge silt out of certain marina areas and pay for engineering work before making any above-sea-level changes. In


Gabber June 6 June 13, 2013 39 A Sugar-Free Summer For Your KidsBy Cathy Salustri Send a swimsuit. Send a bicycle. Just dont send soda to the St. Pete Beach summer camps. This summer, St. Pete Beach is going sugar free. No soda, no candy, no sugar. Thats right: when you send your kid to camp, leave the Pepsi at home. At St. Pete Rec summer camp, staffers get kids moving and keep them away from sugar. The high-activity, no-sugar policy comes from the top: Recreation Department Director Jennifer McMahon, who runs at least three times a week and keeps her own kids physically active. She implemented the policy at her former employer, Largo Parks and Recreation, and instituted it on St. Pete Beach when the city lured her away from Largo last year. That doesnt just mean the community centers soda machine is a no-mansland for kids although it is and that the camp store will only have healthier candy to camp with their kids. We dont allow sodas and candy in their lunch, Edmunds says. If parents do pack a lunch that contains candy, as do some Lunchables, Edmunds says, we take it and will turn around and give it back to that parent at the end of the day. Although some equate summer with ice cream and sugary beverages, Camp Director Mandy Edmunds says she hasnt heard any complaints. issues with it, nobodys really complained. Debby Cavens, mother to six-year-old camper Carmella, supports the sugarfree initiative. kids get too much junk. She said that the summer camp policy would help kids get in the habit of eating healthy wherever they are. At summer camp orientation last week, Edmunds and McMahon also a day of physical activity every day. kids. The pedometers revealed that her campers walked about two miles a day. McMahon brought that active mindset to St. Pete Beach summer camp. We start each day of camp doing some type of stretch and move and have kids lead the lineup in jumping jacks, [we do] and dancing to get them can bring their bikes. Campers also play board games and make arts and crafts, she adds, but they dont play video games and they rarely have passive activities. The only thing that theyll do would be a movie on a rainy day, she says. Her motivation, she says, comes from the burgeoning childhood obesity crisis. Its scary how bad its getting, she says. The hustle and bustle of quick and easy, fast food, a lot of things that the parents rely on, all that contributes to childhood obesity, [and] with technology, kids are more stagnant, theyre not playing outdoors. When I was a kid, you were out playing and exploring. She tries to recreate that experience for the campers so they want to be active instead of being active because they have to do so. She also leads by example rather than a do as I say, not as I do approach: none of the rec center staff can have soda or sugar at work, including her. Staff cant walk around with a soda in their hand. They cant eat McDonalds in front of the kids, or eat a Twix, she says. Its really harder on the staff. To keep kids even more active, parents can also register their kids for a they will kayak and paddleboard. Contact Cathy Salustri at CathySalustri@theGabber.com. practicality, Vice Mayor Dan Liedtke pointed out, none of these ideas would Can we leave city staff with some sort of direction? Councilman Michael Fridovich asked. Community Development Director Fred Metcalf said he would like to see the city connect the waterfront areas so that they feed off each other. with ideas on the wall, handed council told them to use the dots to indicate which ideas mattered most to each councilmember. Dont worry about why it cant work. If its a good idea, well make it work, he said. Each dot represented one vote; the idea of building a hotel received the most votes, with four dots. The discussion about the marina will continue.

46 Gabber June 6 June 12, 2013 By Robert J. Myers, Esq. The Perils of Probate In an attempt to avoid probate when she dies, Mary decides to put her son's name on her two hundred thousand dollar home. Mary recently was involved in the probate of her husband's estate when he died and Mary wanted to make sure that her son, Al, did not have to experience the same expensive procedure on her death. After the deed was recorded on the home, Al became a joint owner with his mother. as a part owner of Mary's home, Mary no longer has total control of the real estate. In fact, Mary must get Al's consent and signature before she can list the home for sale, enter into a lease of the home or put a mortgage on the home. In addition, percent of her homestead exemption which would then increase the amount of taxes on the home. Since Al is now a part owner of the home, his creditors could potentially make a claim against the home because it is now one of his assets. By giving Al a half-interest in the home, Mary has made a gift of one hundred thousand dollars to Al. The Internal Revenue Service only allows individuals to make taxfree gifts of up to twelve thousand dollars per year. As a result, Mary and her estate may have to pay gift taxes upon her death. In addition, if there is a mortgage and note on the home, each time Mary makes a mortgage payment, she is considered to be making a gift to Al. Mary could have avoided all of these potential problems. She could have retained the home only in her name and passed the home to Al under the State of Florida's Homestead Law which allows that one's solely owned homestead property goes directly to her child or children upon death. If Al inherits the home upon Mary's death, Al would then own the home at its "stepped-up basis." What that means is that Al's cost is only the fair market value of the home on the date of Mary's death. If Al were to then sell the home he would have little or no income taxes to pay because stepped-up basis in the home. On the other hand, if Mary deeds a one-half interest in her home to Al during her lifetime, Al's basis in the home would be what Mary paid for the home which could potentially be far less than today's market value. In this case, if Al sold the property, he be paid. All considered, Mary's desire to avoid probate expenses by deeding part of her home to Al during her lifetime could have some less than favorable consequences for both Mary and Al.

Gabber June 6 June 13, 2013 47 The Duck SnatcherThis column originally focused on Gulfport Councilwoman Christine Browns vision for the city marina and why I love it so much I want to sneak into its house and watch it sleep, but something shiny caught my attention over the past few days: ducks. Every morning (and sometimes every evening, if I dont have to cover a city meeting and Im feeling ambitious), Calypso and I take a lap thing I noticed when moved to this neighborhood was that the place was lousy with ducks: Mallards, muscovy, white, marbled brown-andwhite ducks, gallinules (which are barely ducks), cormorants (which are thieving saltwater ducks), and the odd anhinga (slightly more elegant but just as thieving saltwater ducks). If our neighborhood had a name like the trendier Gulfport neighborhoods, wed probably call ourselves the Historic Duck District and wed have providence on the duck lineage at the pond. The ducks would waddle around, looking smug Although, honestly, the ducks already look pretty smug. Ive never seen such cheeky ducks every now and then they stumble over towards our yard, and they actually have the nerve to look annoyed when I walk past them. They rule the pond and the park, too. The one muscovy has Calypso walked too close once, and the duck spread his wings and puffed up his chest, as if to say, Come at me, bro!, and Calypso, remembering that she is a dachshund and this was clearly some sort of geneticallyIsland, backed away. Theres something rotten in the historic duck district, though, and its all the conversation around the A while back, Calypso and I were walking over the bridge at the pond when I noticed the two white ducks watching me with great suspicion. Since Im not above the occasional crispy duck (those white ducks are Pekin ducks, the same kind you get at the best Chinese restaurants), I didnt blame them. But then I saw another, tinier, duck head peek out from under the back end of one of just trying to protect their baby duck. Tasty or not, this little white ball of Soon I found myself talking to the ducks every morning, telling them not to worry when they saw us coming, that we wouldnt hurt them. I photographed them. I started thinking of getting a cleanup of the pond going, because plastic cups and bags and litter blow in every garbage day. I started to wonder if the city could install duck food machines (you know, you put a quarter in and you get a handful of duck food) on the bridge because bread really isnt great for ducks. In short, I kind of fell in love with these tasty little creatures who left duck crap all over the sidewalk and quacked at me in annoyance. And then they disappeared. Monday night, my neighbor Miki told me two of the ducks had vanished. I told her she was mistaken; they were there Saturday night, I was sure. Tuesday morning on my walk, I made a point of looking for my threesome. I saw only the mama duck (I could always tell her from the other two because she doesnt have full feathers on the back of her neck). No daddy duck, no baby duck. I passed a neighbor, who commented on the lack of white ducks and suggested that perhaps someone caught them and who already knew about what he deemed the duck snatcher. Maybe they migrated, he offered hopefully. The problem with that? Pekin ducks have wings that make them look like they mated with a penguin. One reader suggested that coyotes, not the local purveyor of Peking Duck, are behind the disappearance, pointing out that by feeding all these ducks, those of us who live in the Historic Duck District are just fattening the ducks for the feast. Of course, that doesnt explain why all the other ducks escaped the coyotes and why the coyotes didnt leave any feathers or blood. Maybe the cop was right, maybe it really is hard to make a web-footed relationship work and he took the kid and moved over to Wood Ibis Park. I dont know what happened. It just would seem that in Gulfport, of all places, wed do a little better job of looking after wildlife. Except we dont. Apparently its not illegal to snatch a duck and kill it if its in the street. Our laws protecting the wildlife in the park end at the parks borders. I know they are wild animals and make them any more deserving of life than, say, the roaches I make El Cap kill. Its something more, though. Were just close enough to we watch our bikes a little too closely and never leave our cars unlocked, but those are garden-variety thefts. They happen anywhere. We accept those, whether we should or not, as part of life. And I guess if I believed coyotes ate my ducks, I could accept that, too. I dont have to like it, but circle of life, whatever. But the idea that somebody took them? Repugnant. Contact Cathy Salustri at CathySalustri@theGabber.com.
