Gulfport Volleyball
Although Gulfport city council
gave the Association of Professional
Volleyball Professionals (AVP) an
almost-unanimous thumbs up (Ward
Three Councilwoman Jennifer
Salmon cast the dissenting vote)
for a prequalifying tournament on
Gulfport's beach, two local business
groups the Gulfport Merchant's
Association and the Gulfport Area of
Chamber of Commerce cried foul at
Tuesday night's meeting.
Vice Mayor Dan Liedtke suggested
the event, which will take place
September 7 and 8.
Included in the $11,500 price tag will
be a new, permanent volleyball court.
The city's agreement to foot the bill
concerned some people who criticize
the city for subsidizing too many
events.
"We spent almost $100,000 last year
in advertising and promotion and
put it back into Gulfport, and we're
constantly getting criticized for the
perception that we're using city funds
for events," McCue pointed out.
City Manager Jim O'Reilly says he
AVP will reimburse the city if it fills
its registration of 64 teams, adding
that he will not use TIF funds funds
earmarked specifically for downtown -
to subsidize this event.

Jiggleman Delights, As Does Library
Library Administrator
Turns 10% Into 100%
By Cathy Salustri
Jonathan and Abigail Owens, eight
and five, respectively, squeal with
(apparent) delight as Jiggleman
gets quite literally in their face.
The library asked Jiggleman, who
lives in Orlando, to perform as part
of the end of summer reading party.
Jonathan, who will enter third grade
next week, and his sister, who will
start kindergarten, both attend
Bay Point Elementary and live by
Tropicana Field.

Full House at the
Pub Crawl and Poker Run















By Cathy Salustri
Biff Lagan (Beach Bazaar), assisted by Rita Janecek (J's),
draw the winning tickets at the raffle, the culmination of the
five-hour sellout Pub Crawl. "It's been a great year for the GMA,
it really has," Lagan, who serves as the Gulfport Merchant's
Association's treasurer, said. "But it's only as good as the
people who make it up."
By the time the Gecko Pub Crawl started Saturday
night, Gecko Ambassadors were turning people away
at the door.
"It went crazy," Biff Lagan, the treasurer for the
Gulfport Merchant's Association (GMA), said of ticket
sales. The GMA sold the $20 tickets for two weeks

Lift Station Pump For
Marina Pump Station
Gulfport city council voted to spend
$40,000 to replace a pump by the
sewage lift station by the marina.
The pump would cost $6,000 to
fix; the city will spend $40,000 to
replace the pump. It will have a
three-year warranty but Mr. Sopak
said typically pump motors will last
between 15 and 20 years.
The city will rebuild the old motor
for use as a spare, which Mr. Sopak
likened to a used car in that "You
don't know when it's going to go"
but stressed that the rebuilt pumps
helped out when a pump failed.

Featuring Lola Pinot Noir of California
Here's another big bang-for-the-buck red. Twenty dollar Pinot Noirs that
reach this level of quality are far and few between, especially ones that sport
a Russian River Valley address. Founder/Winemaker Seth Cripe, of Palmetto
Florida, has garnered much attention since his initial 2008 release of 848
cases.
His new 2010, a combination of Saralee, Cameron and Occidental vineyard
fruit, yielded 1,400 cases of a strawberry cherry- red currant-scented Pinot
Noir, and they are going fast. (Gjelina, the wildly-popular restaurant in Venice,
powers through mega-cases of Lola Pinot Noir each week via its by-the-glass
program.) A newcomer definitely worth checking out.

ou could say my motto is
'been there, done that',"
says Keith Sanders, from
Sanders Law, P.A.
He says that for two reasons.
First, he says his more than 20
years of experience as an attorney
specializing in handling "literally
thousands" of bankruptcies
means that he has dealt with
virtually any kind of problem or
issue that might arise with them.
And, secondly, he had to file a
Chapter 13 bankruptcy himself.
He says that experience makes
him very sensitive to the kinds of
things people face when making
the difficult decision to file.
"Most attorneys have never
been in a situation where they
have been worried about how to
keep the lights on, but I have been
there myself so I can really relate
to what people are going
through," said Sanders. "Plus,
many people are very
embarrassed when they come to
me, but when I tell them how
embarrassing it was for me to
have to stand in front of judges
and colleagues who knew me and
go through the process myself,
that usually helps to put people
more at ease and understand that
I have been there and done that
MYSELF."
"You know, in 99 percent of
bankruptcy cases the situation is
that bad things happen to good
people. They have gone through
an expensive health crisis or a


divorce or just got in over their
head with debt."
He began his career as a staff
attorney for the U.S. Department
of Justice in Atlanta. He is
licensed to practice law in both
Florida and Georgia.
"I like what I do because I feel
like I can help people get a fresh
start," said Sanders.
"Since the initial consultation
is free, you really don't have
anything to lose to meet with me
and we can assess your situation
and see how it might be best for
you to proceed. Bankruptcy can
be one solution to getting
back on your feet financially,
but it may not be the best or
only solution for you.
Sanders has held a number of
seminars and written
professional papers concerning
bankruptcy law in general, ECF
requirements and new issues. He
is a former director of the
Bankruptcy Section of the State
Bar of Georgia.
The firm also handles Short
Sale negotiations, defense
against foreclosures, wills &
trusts, civil litigation and
personal injury.
Despite what you may have
read or heard recently, any
debt discharged in
Bankruptcy is a non taxable
event as far as the IRS is
concerned.

Letters

A lot of learning to do
Dear Editor: I felt the need to write
a retort in support of Boy Scouts of
America, and hopefully assuage the
strong sentiment felt by Gulfport
residents and our larger community
about the benefits and policies of this
organization. I also wish to delineate
the division between the Boy Scouts
of America and the Sea Scouts of
America (a Venturing branch), and,
as a Scouter, to notify you of my
opinion concerning the treatment of
homosexuals in our organization.
I imagine that the story concerning
the ousting of Cub Scout Pack 300,
formerly meeting at Scout Hall,
was the story to which you were
referring that was responsible for
stirring up so much controversy.
Firstly, let me state this: it can be
understood that in any organization,
government, society, etc., people
formulate, maintain, and promote
different beliefs. Understandably,
in the Unites States, although both
Republicans and Democrats adhere
to the values of our constitution
and seek to promote and uphold the
freedom for which this nation stands,
it can be understood that both of these
political 'opponents' identify with
different fundamental belief systems.
Neither, however, can technically be
considered 'rivals' when considering
that both firmly support political
progress and promote democratic
ideals. Their existence is a clear
indication of the freedoms that
are allowed to be exercised in this
country.
Having said all of this, it can be
understood that Scouting as a whole
can be viewed in the same way. At
Sea Scout Ship 915 in Gulfport,
lesbian and gay leaders are never
turned away because of their sexual
preference, and homosexual scouts
are always welcomed with open
hearts and open minds regardless of
their orientation.
It is clear to me that the Scouting
movement has long maintained
an antiquated view concerning the
admittance of homosexuals as a
result of one major organizational
hitch: many branches of Scouting
are heavily supported by religious
organizations that are fundamentally
opposed to same-sex relationships.
The Mormon Church of Jesus Christ


of Latter-day Saints (LDS) is one of
the biggest supporters of Scouting in
the nation, and other religious entities
fall only shortly behind in promoting
Scouting in their communities. In
order to avoid jeopardizing these
relationships, Scouting has adopted
the stance that homosexuality is
morally wrong, and has used this as
grounds for exclusion of members
and leaders (until their 2013 decision
to allow homosexual youths to
participate in Scouting). The last line
of our oath states: "...to keep myself
physically strong, mentally awake,
and morally straight."
Many religious organizations
continue to maintain that
homosexualityis immoral, when, after
understanding that homosexuality is
predisposed genetically, this cannot
be considered a moral 'decision' or a
conscious 'choice' at all. I personally
apologize to all of the members of
the LGBTQ community who have
felt discriminated against by the
Boy Scouts of America, or other
organizations offaith. My roommate is
gay, my best friend is openly bisexual
- these things don't faze me. In fact,
I am happy that they have come to
terms with themselves enough to
accept these things, regardless of
society's overall opposition to their
lifestyles. I am just as proud to be a
Boy Scout as I am that they are some
of my closest friends.
What I am opposed to is that LGBTQ
Scouts can attain the highest ranks
that our movement can bestow upon
them, and then, once they wake up on
the morning of their 18th birthdays,
they are shunned, forbidden from
sharing their experiences and skills
with younger scouts. This just isn't
right, and it needs to be changed.
Overall, the benefits of our
organization much outweigh
the policies responsible for this
controversy. I can tell you from
personal experience, I would never
have been able to sail a 35' sailboat
from St. Petersburg to Key West
and the Dry Tortugas, camp in the
mountains of New Hampshire's
pristine Crawford Notch and
Presidential Mountain Range, or
watch as a Yale-educated plastic and
reconstructive surgeon used skin
grafts and kindness to reconstruct a
child's severed scalp and a mother's
broken heart had it not been for


my involvement in the Scouting
movement.
I also truly believe that I would never
have attained the responsibility and
motivation necessary for me to excel
in one of our nation's most prestigious
universities had it not been for the
Scouting program. It is without a
doubt that Scouting has served to
educate millions of young men and
women internationally, providing the
necessary structure to permit them to
seek productive, successful lives, and
become valuable members of their
communities.
Overall, what I am saying is that each
and every one of us needs to withhold
judgment, and not participate in
casting stones at an organization
that isn't perfect and never has
claimed to be, especially when we
ourselves have been perpetrators
of some offenses. I think I am not
overstepping my bounds when I
say that we all have participated in
discrimination, and we all have been
discriminated against: whether it is
one gay man who is forced to move
out of a heterosexual community, a
civil rights leader who is murdered
by a bigot, a boy who is shot and
killed as a result of racial profiling,
a church whose doors remain open to
some and closed to others, or a middle-
aged white woman who moves out of
an all-black neighborhood as a result
of thievery, these are all examples
of issues which continue to require
resolution in our own hearts before
ubiquitous progress can be attempted
and made.
We all need to continue to raise our
voices together to eliminate hatred,
bigotry, and discrimination from our
vocabulary and from our hearts. It
will be a happy day when all of us,
regardless of sexual orientation,
religious affiliation, disability,
political belief, skin color, gender,
ethnicity, weight, etc., can accept our
differences as holy, or we forever run
the risk of polluting our future.
As far as the Scouting Movement is
concerned, I think that many changes
need to be made, and that controversy
is a sign of progress I know that this
organization, as well as any other,
doesn't reflect the opinions of all of its
participants.
Overall, I think all of us, including
Boy Scouts of America, have a lot of
learning to do.

Letters (con't.)

It's time to polish
our "diamond"
Dear Editor: Hi Cathy, I certainly
enjoyed your article "Cruising into
Gulfport" in the Aug. 1, 2013 Gabber.
We are new residents in Gulfport
and so much of what captivated us
about Gulfport was the waterfront
location. It is a shame some of our
village leaders do not recognize that
our bay is an incredible natural
resource in which we are responsible
for maintaining and enhancing. The
book, "The Giving Tree" shares the
lesson of gifts that are given back to
the caretaker who nurtures the tree,
but for the caretaker who ignores his
responsibility, the tree fades away
and dies. Likewise, the bay and the
Clam Bayou are our responsibility -
to care for, clean, and share its beauty
to those that appreciate what it can
offer. It is sad to see the condition of
the bayou and the ridiculous amount
of litter that decorates our beaches.
Gulfport is a diamond in the rough,
however if we ignore these issues,
our "diamond in the rough" will
only diminish stopping people
from wanting to visit or live here!
Not supporting these changes and
improvements, will only attract more
"boat people" and patrons that litter
and contaminate our bay. In fact,
because of their disrespect for the
environment, themselves and others,
their actions will continue to impact
the Gulfport residents' pocketbooks.
When our village representatives
cannot see or envision life except for
the "way it's always been attitude",
especially when these issues are so
clearly visible, their actions are no
better than the as you called them-
"derelict boaters".
We are very supportive of your
thoughts and ideas for the mooring,
clean-up of Clam Bayou and the
renovation and improvements to
the marina. As one resident, we
will all benefit from any and all
improvements that help Gulfport.







Gabber August 15- August 21, 2013


This should be as plain as the nose
on your face.
We can make improvements to the
marina with a mooring field, clean
our waterfront and the bayou without
compromising the integrity of our
"lI.,yl.-I.ivy" like village. Let's polish
our diamond so we can be a beacon
to all who live here, the visitors
that love to play here and our hard
working residents that strive to keep
their businesses in business.
Peggy Van Wagoner

Request for clarification
Dear Editor: We respectfully
ask you to consider publishing a
clarification in regards to your article
"St. Pete Beach Votes to Lower
Taxes" published in the Gabber
on August 1, 2013. We believe it is
important to clarify for your readers
that the Juvenile Welfare Board
has already decided not to raise
taxes this year and to clarify that
our cost is currently less than 1%
of the tax bill (.8981) and can never
be more than 1%. A more detailed
clarification editorial is provided for
your consideration below:
The Juvenile Welfare Board of
Pinellas County has already decided
not to raise taxes this year. Our cost
is currently less than 1% of the tax
bill (.8981), it can never be more than
1%, and this investment allows us
to continue our legacy of positively
impacting our community's most
valuable resource- our children. The
Juvenile Welfare Board values every
child in Pinellas County, investing
in three areas that are vital to their
well-being: keeping them safe from
abuse or neglect, ensuring they are
ready to learn, and ensuring they
are successful in school. We do this
by embracing collaboration, pursuing
innovation and celebrating results.
For nearly 70 years, the Juvenile
Welfare Board of Pinellas County has
been a model for ensuring the success
of Pinellas children and their families.
In fact, Pinellas County citizens were
the first in Florida to collectively
say that "all children matter" in our
county and to invest in their success
by establishing the Juvenile Welfare
Board in statute in 1945, followed by
an overwhelming voter approval in
the 1946 referendum.

"Game Zone", a teen night at the
library where teens can gather and
do homework, play video games, or
simply hang out.
"Whatever comes our way, if we catch
wind of it, we'll see if it goes," Mather
says. Aside from capital projects, City
Manager Jim O'Reilly estimates that
Mather's budget has increased 10%.
Since he started running the library,
participation increased drastically.
"For adults, it's almost 100%
because we never really had adult
programming here. We had groups
that met," he says, adding that the
Circle of Friends sponsored some
adult programming over past years.
The youth programs, too, have seen
an increase, with Thursday morning
story time (10:30 a.m.) growing from
two to 25 participants.
The city manager praises the
change.
"Coming from a very frugal
environment, Davidknowshowtowork

Email your request to News@theGabber.com
By Cathy Salustri
City of St. Pete Beach: Community Center

Q; What do residents who use the community center tell staff they
need, service-wise?
A: "There is not much that is asked, service-wise, that we don't provide,"
Director Jennifer McMahon says, adding that programs currently available
at the center resulted from such requests. They include childcare (after-
school and summer programs), health-related options like a fitness center
and fitness classes (including SilverSneakers), social events such as senior
excursions, bridge, social Mahjong, and special interest classes (like
photography), events, and the aquatic center.
Occasionally the center does get requests for things it doesn't offer.
Patrons will occasionally ask "do you have a sauna or hot tub?"
"I usually point outside and say that is our 100 degree sauna," McMahon
says. Sometimes people request classes for which the city doesn't have an
instructor, such as gymnastics.
"Usually if I get enough requests for one class, I can search for an instructor
and get it offered," McMahon says. "We also get asked by fitness center
users if we have showers and locker room in the community center which
we don't but do at the pool. But other than that, I think we have something
to fit most needs presented to us."

ttiIor oscope Guide


By Holiday Mathis
Blue moons are popularly defined
as the second full moon inside a
calendar month. There is also a
seasonal qualification: A blue moon
is the third of four full moons to
take place in a season. That is the
definition by which Tuesday's full
moon in Aquarius claims its "blue"
status. Why not celebrate by doing
something you will thoroughly enjoy
but wouldn't necessarily want to
make a habit of?
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Let people
give to you. They probably won't
know how, and they're likely to mess
it up, but it's important that you
let them try. Eventually, you can
teach people how to best show their
affection for you. But for now, accept
and appreciate the gifts of others. It
keeps you in the flow of generosity.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Your
work is cut out for you this week.
Don't let the scope of your endeavor
intimidate you. Resolve to stick with
it, and by Wednesday, you've already
made marked progress. Know that
this is not about just you. Your
tenacity is moving to others. People
you don't even know are cheering for
you.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Your
awareness of energy and how it
flows through people, environments
and the natural world will be deeper
and broader than usual. You'll be so
attuned to vibes and body language
that you won't even need to see a
person's face to know what he or she
is thinking. Use your talent to sort
out a social situation.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You
have many irresistible qualities, but
you may have forgotten what they
are. Ask those closest to you. Also,
mentally visit your history for clues.
Once you remember your strengths,
you can play to them in this
week's negotiations. Try different
combinations until you unlock the
"yes" you're trying to get.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21).
Those who expect you to behave in a
certain way will get a surprise this
week. What they fail to understand


is that you live by your own internal
code of values. In some ways, it's
more stringent than societal norms,
and in other ways, it's totally
different. When you act, you always
have your reasons.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19).
The remarkable thing about weeds is
that they are the hardiest of plants.
They grow and grow without being
invited, cared for or appreciated.
They claim the land and declare that
they belong there, and maybe they
do. You'll have a weedy-equivalent
in your world this week, and you'll
react to it thoughtfully.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18).
You're on task this week, putting all
of your energy into seeing a vision
through. Let others know how they
can help. You'll command respect
and influence others, mostly because
you couldn't care less what they
think of you. Your mission is too
important to waste time worrying
about petty things.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You'll
correctly surmise the intentions of
others even when their actions don't
quite convey them properly. It's this
talent for reading between the lines
that makes you very attractive this
week. Note: Some Pisces will be
dealing with matters of inheritance.
You know what they say: Where
there's a will, there's a relative.
ARIES (March 21-April 19).
Romance and melodrama are
dramatic constructs that don't have
a lot to do with real life, except that
they have entertained people for
centuries. What parts of real life are
you willing to risk for the sake of
romance and melodrama? Be careful
in your choices.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You
like to pick and choose your sources
for information. You want to be
privy to what the insiders know, not
exposed to the overheated media slop
so casually prepared for the masses.
You prefer your news to come in
thoughtful trickles, not floods. Your
media wishes will be fulfilled this
week.
GEMINI (il.viy 21-June 21). You're


all heart this week. The gift of feeling
will color your world, and you'll sense
every color differently. The pinks
and browns will especially grab you,
suggesting that some things are
extremely light and airy while others
are based in the realism of dirt and
the solidity of mountain rock.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). What
constitutes a good conversation? For
starters, the other person will not be
head down in a text. Competing with
digital information is just annoying,
and you should tell the other person
that competing with people who are
not even in the vicinity is simply
too much to ask and certainly
unacceptable.
This Week's Birthdays:
Extraordinary luck visits you as
you make the most of the season.
Your best qualities are highlighted
as you have the kind of fun that can
only be had by seizing the moment.
You'll meet excellent partners in
September. The idea for a business
comes in October. November and
May are the best times to travel, both
for pleasure and business. Break
your own rules in January, when
a challenge surfaces that normally
wouldn't appeal to you but will grow
your spirit and supercharge your
social network, too.

Cra Wl, from front page
before the event, but in the remaining
hours before the pub crawl, the event
sold out. The Pub Crawl ambassadors
welcomed crawlers to five restaurants
and one bar: Cousins, Tea and Me,
0 I1.iI.ly's, J's, Neptune and Salty's.
The ticket entitled them to a drink at
each location as well as one card in a
night-long game of poker. Local artist
Tom Pitzen went home with the grand
prize, a stay at the Tradewinds.
This year marked the first that
ambassadors, often clad in disco garb
in homage to this year's "Gecko Night
Fever"-themed gecko season, greeted
crawlers at each location.
"It was a great event, and having
the ambassadors at each place was
just fabulous," Lagan said.
Gecko season has taken on a fever
in Gulfport that has little to do with
disco.
Mayor Sam Henderson moved here
"seven and a half Gecko Years ago"
and has attended all but one Gecko
Fest.
"I really think that all these things
catching on is because August has
become Gecko month," he said.
"You get something almost every
weekend."
"This year's Gecko Pub Crawl
appeared to boast record breaking
attendance, from this participant's
perspective," he said. "With such
enthusiastic growth, I hope that the
event hours will be extended next
year to allow crawlers more time (and
potentially more money) to spend at
each location. I also want to thank all
of the Pub Crawl destinations, and
all of the crawlers who pulled out
their purses and wallets to tip the
hardworking bartenders and servers.
Cheers to next year!"
Lagan said the participating venues
were beside themselves. They loved
it, they were packed. It was just a
great, great thing."
He added that he received numerous
inquiries from beach hotels and
motels.
Halfway through the 2013 Gecko
Season, Lagan and the GMA already
have plans for next year. Next year,
he says, the GMA will sell Pub
Crawl tickets online with PayPal,
something the GMA tried for the first
time this year with the also-sold-out
Gecko Ball.
"Next year we are going to raffle two
sets of Ball tickets at the Pub Crawl.
Gabber August 15- August 21, 2013


They're the hottest ticket in town,"
he said.
The next Gecko Season event, Gecko
Ball, will take place on August 24 at

Volleyball, from front page
While Ward Three Councilwoman
Jennifer Salmon pointed out that the
city was paying for a promoter, the
city manager said the city paid the
promoter fee because he would not
allow the promoter, Mario Farias, to
bring in outside food vendors.
"I thought it was in the best interest
of the community to pay the promoter
the money he would have made from
renting space to food vendors so the
local businesses could benefit from
the event instead," City Manager
Jim O'Reilly said.
The promoter will still have
volleyball-related dry good vendor
and the city will allow the sale of
beer in conjunction with So49.
On behalf of the Gulfport Merchants
Association (GMA) and Chamber
of Commerce, Lori Rosso and Owen
Pach spoke out against the chamber
and GMA's exclusion in the process.
Rosso serves as president of the
chamber and secretary of the GMA;
Pach serves as vice president of the
GMA.
GMA president Mike McCue told
the Gabber the issues arise from how
the city handled the event planning
rather than the event itself.
The volleyball is not the issue; there's
no question that this volleyball thing
is good," McCue said Wednesday
morning.
At the meeting Tuesday night, the
two business guild representatives
protested So49 involvement. So49,
a business organization geared
towards promoting 49th Street
South, will promote the event and
keep all proceeds from beer sales. The
GMA has a stated focus on Gulfport's
downtown area.
"It seemed weird that So49 is
benefitting," McCue said, but
stressed that it wasn't a matter of
competition, just that the mission
statements of the two organization
appeared to outline areas in which
each would focus and this event
seemed to stray from those areas.
"There is no competition."







Gabber August 15- August 21, 2013


McCue says, too, that the appearance
of the event at what he perceived as
the last minute made it seem "like
the city was sliding it in" when Mayor
Sam Henderson and City Manager
Jim O'Reilly told the GMA last month
it wanted no more events.
"We were blindsided when we saw
the city manager's report," he said.
The vice mayor expressed optimism
for between 2,000 and 3,000 attendees
over the weekend and the Ward Two
Councilwoman who represents the
downtown voters, Christine Brown
said while she heard and believed the
concerns Pach and Rosso expressed,
she thought the tournament offered
"a great opportunity" for future
events.
"Do you need any other Ulp...i' she

asked, offering CERT (Community
Emergency Response Team)
assistance.
Mayor Sam Henderson expressed
displeasure at the process but
endorsed the event.
"I, too, am not happy with the
process. I do think this is going to be
a really good event," he said. He later
suggested that So49, the chamber
and the GMA all have representatives
involved in event planning with the
city.
"I want to suggest that moving
forward... that when we do this,"
Mayor Henderson said, "that it
might be good to have one member
who is a representative of each of the
boards."

Senior Artist and
10-Year-Old Author
Featured at Art Walk
Domain Home Accessories &
Gallery will host a reception
showcasing the work of a local
senior artist and a young author
during its next "Meet the Artists"
event on Saturday, August 17th, 6
to 10 p.m. Artist Katherine Marra,
age 66, will be on hand to show and
discuss her paintings and drawings
of wildlife, pets and other subjects.
Ten-year-old Isabella Kontrick,
author of the recently published
"Barracuda's Curse" (2013, Trace
Taylor Publishing), will also appear
during the event to discuss and
sign her book. "Meet the Artists"
will take place at "& Gallery" (3129
Beach Boulevard S. in Gulfport).
Complimentary beverages and hors
d'oeuvres will be offered.
Katherine Marra grew up near
Boston and studied commercial and
fine art in formal settings as well as
in individual classes with seasoned
artists. She took a break from the


pursuit of art while raising a family.
She has lived locally now for several
years and returned to art work
after relocating with her husband to
Florida. She has worked in pen and
ink, pencil, charcoal and pastels. A
primary focus of her work is animal
life, including birds and lizards.
Appropriately, she has accomplished
several paintings of lizards and
geckos, which are celebrated this
month during Gulfport's annual
GeckoFest. She also specializes
in pet portraiture and accepts
commissions from clients who would
like a keepsake portrait of their own
pets. She enjoys talking to the pets,
bringing out their expressions and
individuality, while capturing them
in her art.
Isabella Kontrick enters the fourth
grade this year. Born in Mexico, she
moved to the U.S. at age two in 2005.
She is an avid reader and writer,
creating poems, song stories and even
screenplays. During her third grade
year in 2012, she was a participant
in the first annual Gulfport Youth
Book Writing Workshop Series and

Contest. The manuscript she entered
for the contest, "Barracuda's Curse,"
was chosen winner in the lst-3rd
grade category. The idea for the
story was inspired by a recent trip
to the Florida Keys. In developing
the published book, Isabella also
created a collage for the cover, as
well as line drawings that introduce
each chapter. She is already at work
on her next book, as well as a film
project with some of her peers.
The Youth Book Writing event
continues this year, beginning
September 14th. All Pinellas County
students from grades 1 through
12 are invited to participate in
this free community program.
Participants attend weekly two-
hour workshops for two months as
they receive mentoring from local
professionals in the skills of writing,
editing and publishing. Educational
and publishing professionals form
an advisory panel that judges
the finished entries. Winners in
each category are then guided
through the process of editing their
manuscripts in preparation for
publication. The event includes
sponsors and collaborators including
Pinellas County Schools, the
City of Gulfport, Gulfport Public
Library and local businesses. Trace
Taylor Publishing produces the
event. For more information on
the Youth Writing program, email

of being out in the woods and fishing for Northern Pike. During that time, I
dabbled in taking piano lessons. As I hit my eighties, I have taken lessons and

Coral Reef Hotel Plans rr

The Coral Reef hotel on St. Pete Beach
wants to grow and change. At a July I i ;- I'
meeting in Pass-a-Grille, 5800 Gulf 4' :. r',:l'l
Holdings LLC held a public meeting to "- v r
present its plans for improvement. . t
Here's the bare facts from the proposal:

Height: Roughly 20% of the Coral Reef -;. ,
will reach the 146 foot height limit, with $9t:- L .
most of the hotel under 100 feet. The -- --
commissioner who represents the voters in District Three, Marvin Shavlan,
pointed out that by comparison, "the buildings on St. Petersburg's Beach Drive
are at approximately 300 feet, or more than double the maximum allowable
height in St. Pete Beach's Large Hotel District."
Additional public beach access on south side of the hotel
Sidewalk (10 feet wide) will face Gulf Boulevard
Low-rise retail space beyond sidewalk
Setbacks: the hotel will sit on the far west end of the property, set back from
Gulf Boulevard

At the meeting, comments ran the gamut from "let me know if I can do
anything to help" to "Your plan is quite beautiful on paper but I do not believe
that this scale a project is appropriate for St. Pete Beach."
Commenters also expressed concerns about the neighboring time share's
view of the Gulf and stormwater runoff, as well as other handwritten and
typed submissions to the developer. To look at the proposed plan and read the
community reaction, please read this article online at TheGabber.com.
Gulf Holdings LLC traces to "Corporation Company of Orlando" in Winter
Park, which includes president James Willard, Michael J. Grindstaff and
vice presidents Gregory Humphries, Rod Jones, Dan O'Keefe and Robert A.
Savill.

' omethi' O my mind
By Bill Northrop B_Northrop@theGabber.com


A Work Place Incident
The "work place violence" trial
began last week, and Major Nidal
Malik Hasan is acting as his own
attorney and that almost assures
his being found guilty. Not that he is
contending anything else. He sayshe's
the shooter. Oh. You're not familiar
with the work place massacre? Been
a while, hasn't it? I'm referring to
the Fort Hood shooting four years
ago. The one where the worker, Maj.
Hasan, an army psychiatrist, killed
13 soldiers and wounded 30 others
while shouting "Allahu Akbar" God
is great is one translation.
That was sometime after he
swapped e-mails with recently
drone-assassinated terrorist Anwar
Al-Awlaki in Yemen. It was also after
the U.S. Army discovered that Maj.
Hasan leaned heavily toward being


a Muslim extremist and had extreme
negative feelings about non-believers
and the U.S. in general. At any rate,
he was the only armed person in the
immediate vicinity and was very
thorough in his killing executing some
of the wounded. He eventually was
shot and is now partially paralyzed.
It took four years to get him to trial,
partly because he grew a beard and
military courts don't permit that.
In the meanwhile, the Obama
administration refers to this as
"work place" violence, apparently
unlinked to the world-wide jihad that
has terrorized so many, Muslims
included. Of course, there's good
reason to classify this as just a work
place incident. It is politically correct.
To imply anything else might make
some people mad at us and seek
retribution. Families are complaining
that the designation ignores their

military service. Some have said
they could get more benefits than
those provided for routine deaths.
Military benefits are significant, but
are getting congressional reviews,
primarily related to combat deaths.
Not certain about who will get what,
but Hasan, while this has dragged
out, has received nearly $300,000.
Maybe, with the "work place violence"
tag, families of the dead soldiers and
the wounded can sue for punitive
damages since the Army knew that
Hasan was a risk. That's doubtful,
too. Whatever it is this is more than
"work place" violence.
Anyway, he's acting as his own
attorney and refuting very little.
There is speculation that he wants
to be executed. That might mean
martyrdom. So, here's the odd thing.
He is likely to be found guilty, but
does the U.S. want that? Think of
the negative publicity. Martyrdom.
Executing a paralyzed guy who was
just a bit crazy because of his work
place. Barbaric. Of course, that raises
the issue of his sanity (he is), but
given the whacky reasoning being
used so far we may yet save him
from himself. At least, maybe his pay
would stop. Or, would it?
I don't know where the trial is
heading except toward guilty.
Survivors have been testifying
and their stories are graphic and
gruesome. I expect Hasan to have a
pulpit to spew his hatred of all non-
believers and to tell the rest of the
world how horrible the U.S. is. He'll
have some strong supporters and a
wide range of apologists.
As for the death penalty, if it is
invoked, it will go through a couple
of automatic appeals. Considering
that it has taken four years to get
to trial, it will be interesting to see
how quickly the military moves
in comparison to the non-military
system. Ten, twenty, thirty years?
I sincerely doubt it. However,
whatever the time sequence, should
the penalty be death, it will have to
be approved by the President of the
United States. That almost insures
that nothing will be done within the
next four years.

Gulfport Through Your Eyes: Help Make History
Help create history of Gulfport as it looks today and possibly win cash -
with your photos of Gulfport. This autumn, the Gulfport Historical Society
will hold the first annual "Gulfport Through Your Eyes" photo contest, which
will showcase the Gulfport of today. These photos will help create a historical
record for future generations of Gulfportians.
On October 12, Gulfportians can glimpse how their neighbors see Gulfport -
through their eyes- as part of the city's new and improved birthday celebration.
Judges will announce the winner at the evening's fundraising dinner, Gulfport
Under the Stars.
Contest entries should be large enough to print as an 8-by- 10 photo without
sacrificing image quality. Photographers must take the photos inside Gulfport,
the Gulfport side of Clam Bayou, or in Boca Ciega Bay fronting Gulfport, and
the photographers should have taken the photos within the past year.
Please submit print-quality (300 dpi or greater) image as well as a printed
copy along with a five dollar entry fee. Your name should appear nowhere
on the photo. Please bring your photo and entry fee to the museum after it
reopens on Tuesday, September 3 or send a check made out to "Gulfport
Historical Society" along with your printed copy. You may e-mail the digital
image to dreamsfloat@me.com; the mailing address is listed below. Please
indicate whether or not you've altered the image digitally and tell us a little
about the photo.
Please submit your entries by October 1. Judges will determine the winner at
the annual birthday bash. All photos become property of the Gulfport Historical
Society. Photographers who wish only to have their work on exhibit, not
considered for a prize, need not pay an entry fee but must submit their work in
the manner they would like it displayed (for example, framed or matted) The
winning photo will hang in city hall and travel to local businesses and other
locations. The Gulfport Historical Society will determine the amount of the
cash prize based on the number of entries.
Please e-mail any questions to dreamsfloat@me.com.

Calling all Golfers!
Is there anything more enjoyable
to those of us that play than hitting
a 3oo yard drive down the middle of
the fairway? Or how about hitting an
iron to within a foot of the hole and
tapping in for birdie? How about doing
all of this on a beautiful September
afternoon and helping those in the
community at the same time?
The Gulfport Lions club will be
holding their inaugural "Mulligan
Open" golf tournament on Saturday,
September 14th at the prestigious
Pasadena Yacht and Country Club.
The club is located at 6300 Pasadena
Point Boulevard S., Gulfport. Come
and play where the likes of Walter
Hagen, Babe Ruth, Arnold Palmer
and many more have graced the
fairways.
All proceeds from this event will
fund their 2013 Christmas Toy Shop
and Food Certificate program. This
program has become such a large
part of their community outreach
efforts during the holiday season,
that they as a club see the need to
try to expand this wonderful holiday
event. This program assists local
families during the holiday season
with the essentials to put a holiday
meal on the dinning room table, and
a little holiday cheer under the tree.
They are currently accepting golfer
registrations as well as community
sponsorships of all types. A $25,000
Hole In One contest will highlight
the event, with in round competitions
including longest drive, closest to the
pin and a putting contest to name a
few. There is also three auxiliary hole
in one contests on the remaining par
3s, so there is plenty of opportunity
to strut your stuff.
There will be a southern style BBQ
after the round at their local Lions
clubhouse, where they will hold
silent auctions, product raffles, 50/50
drawing, etc. The clubhouse is located
at 4630 Tifton Drive S., Gulfport, just
a few minutes drive from the course.

sponsorship opportunities they

Calling High School
Students
Attention high school students: The
Youth Advisory Committee invites
you to get involved. How can high
school students be a part of county
government? What is the Youth
Advisory Committee? What does it
do and how can you join?
Students who serve on the Pinellas
County Youth Advisory Committee
invite high school students who live
in Pinellas County to attend an open
house on Wednesday, August 21, at
3p.m.
The open house will provide teens
with information on the YAC and
the ways that they can participate
in local government. It will be held
in the fifth-floor Commissioners
Conference Room in the Pinellas
County Courthouse, 315 Court
St. in downtown Clearwater.
Refreshments will be served.
The Youth Advisory Committee,
established in 2001, was developed
as a vehicle for young people to
provide input and assistance to the
Pinellas County Board of County
Commissioners. The committee
assists the commission by helping
to identify the needs of young
people locally, to organize youth-
based activities that benefit the
local community, to suggest services
needed by young people within
Pinellas County and to become
active participants, with their adult
counterparts, in county programs.
YAC members coordinate the
Teens Behind the Scenes program
that gives high school students a
behind-the-scenes look at several
county facilities to see how county
services are provided. Other projects,
including community service, will be
planned for this school year.
To RSVP for the open house, or
for more information on the Youth
Advisory Committee, call 727-
582-2656 or visit www.

Adopt a Pit Bull for $5
During Pittie-Party
To help find forever homes for
all American Pit Bull Terriers at
Pinellas County Animal Services,
the shelter is having a pit bull Pittie-
Party on Saturday, Aug. 17, from
9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Pit bull and pit mix adoptions
will be $5 each during this special
promotion and will come with a
goody bag of special dog treats and
accessories. The special adoption fee
includes medical check-up, spaying/
neutering, vaccinations, internal and
external parasite control, heartworm
testing, microchipping and county
license.
Pit bulls are notoriously slow to be
adopted at Animal Services and many
have been at the shelter for several
weeks. But all dogs are in fine health
with friendly temperaments and any
one of them would make an ideal pet
for the right family.
During the month of August, other
adoptable dogs and cats are available
with reduced adoption fees of $25 and
$5 rabies vaccinations are available
with the purchase of a required
license each Thursday from 1 to
4p.m.

Reading, writing and arithmet


Reading, writing and arithmetic.
It's the end of summer fun and the
beginning of homework, new friends
and "back to school" excitement. The
2013-2014 school year is underway
and safety is an important lesson for
both students and parents. In the
coming months, Pinellas roadways
will be full of school buses, car pools,
kids riding bikes and walking to
schools across the county. Safety
is always a high priority to all of us
here at the Pinellas County Sheriffs
Office.
Whether your child commutes to
school via bus, bike or their own
two feet, it's important to remind
them to always be aware of their
surroundings. Walking with your
children or accompanying them to the
bus stop is always best practice. If a
child has to travel on their own, there
are several tips they should learn to
make their trip to and from school a
safe one. Children should be taught
never to take shortcuts. Remind
children to stay in populated areas
and avoid vacant buildings and lots.
Having your child walk with a group
of friends or a "buddy" is also helpful.
If your little ones have to travel
before the sun rises, reflective tape or
clothing is encouraged. They should
walk on the sidewalk and in a well-
lighted area. If a sidewalk is not
available, children should walk facing
traffic and bicyclists should ride with


the flow of traffic. School Crossing
Guards will be on duty before and
after school to help students cross
busy roads safely. Children should
be taught to follow the instructions of
the crossing guards and that they are
a "safe" person to go to if they are ever
in need of assistance.
Drivers are reminded to take extra
precautions throughout the school
year. Drivers should be alert, as there
will be more buses and cars on the
roadways each morning and afternoon.
Plan ahead and add a few extra
minutes to your commute. Exercising
patience near schools, crosswalks and
bus stops is also encouraged. School
zones will require reduced speeds
and brief stops as the crossing guards
assist younger students who negotiate
busy streets while walking to school.
Florida law requires that drivers
bring their vehicle to a full stop when
approaching any school bus displaying
a stop signal. Motorists must then
remain stopped and are prohibited
from passing the bus until the signal
has been withdrawn. This law also
applies to motorists driving in the
opposite direction of a stopped school
bus unless there is an unpaved space
of at least five feet, a raised median,
or some other type of physical barrier.
By following the law and these simple
suggestions you can help us to achieve
our goal of "Leading the Way for a
Safer Pinellas."

You & THE


LAW 7 ,

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


il N 1


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 duty to the beneficiaries of
the probate estate to protect assets
in the estate, this responsibility is
court-supervised by the filing of an
inventory with the Probate Court.
A personal representative is
required to publish a "Notice of
Administration" in a newspaper of
local circulation. This notice specified
who 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
requirements of filing claims and
other 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
the estate, file estate tax returns and
distribute assets to beneficiaries of a
probate estate.

The Tropics Heat up in
August
Hurricane Andrew. Hurricane
( li.l.-y. Hurricane Katrina. What
does each of these storms have in
common?
They were devastating storms.
Their names were retired.
They all made their Florida landfall
in August.
This is the month when tropical
activity begins to ramp up in earnest
before reaching its peak in mid-
September. That's why it is critical
that residents take this time to
ensure all of their preparations for a
potential hurricane impact are done.
Some items to consider include:
* Check the cooler. New picnic coolers
can help keep perishable items cold
for a longer period thanks to improved
insulation. Residents should evaluate
the age and insulation of their coolers,
as well as their size. Smaller coolers
are easy to tote to the beach, but can
they hold a substantial amount of ice
and food should power go out?
The furniture shuffle. One of the
best ways to help prevent damage
outdoors is to bring in lawn furniture,
grills, bird baths and other outdoor
furniture. Residents should take the
time to review what items need to be
brought into a protected area, and
exactly where that will be. This can
save a tremendous amount of time
during the stressful approach of a
hurricane.
Keep the charge. Smart phones,
tablet computers and other electronics
can provide vital links to friends and
relatives both before and after a
storm. ( li.ir,.-i--4 that work on regular
power, a car charger and by other
means are vital to keep the batteries
juiced up. Simple changes such as
adjusting screen brightness, deleting
unnecessary applications and using
better saving applications can help
extend the life of the battery for when
you need it most.

preparedness, call Emergency

Book Sale Helps Fund New Library

By Cathy Salustri

S K When hearing that the book sale benefitted
the library and its building fund, South
Pasadena resident Steve Kelly handed library
administrator Phyllis Ruscella an extra five
dollars. Mr. Kelly bought 12 books and a small
collection of National Geographics. "That will
S ? keep me busy for a while," he said.


In three hours Saturday morning, the Friends of the St. Pete Beach Library
raised over $500 for a new library. The sale, organized and run by the Friends
of the Library group, sold over 2,000 books and movies.
The Corey Avenue Business Association, CABA, supported the sale by
providing the Tropicool iced treat bus. Library Administrator Phyllis Ruscella
said locals who came to the event told her they did so specifically to help support
a bigger library. All the monies raised Saturday will help fund $2.3 million in
renovations to the older library.
The library will also receive $200,000 in grant money from the county's library
cooperative, PPLC, but it will not fully cover the cost of renovations. The
Friends group has over $100,000 earmarked for the renovations. The city has
yet to commit a dollar amount to the renovation, although the commission did
support a resolution in support of the project, which it would begin in 2015.
The renovations call for an expansion that includes a new conference room with
a kitchen, a lobby, new restrooms, and an outdoor entry patio with benches.
The original building will remain but will undergo a thorough remodel.
The building has original linoleum and restrooms as well as a leaky roof. The
carpet dates back to the 1970s. The commission discussed renovations in the
past but, a check with the city's finance director, Elaine Edmunds, doesn't show
the library renovations in the budget until the current year. An appearance in
the budget doesn't mean work will start that year; engineering work won't
begin until 2015. Construction will commence in 2016 if the commission doesn't
alter the timeline as it goes through the budget process.

MAYTHE SACRED Heart of Jesus be adored,
glorified, loved, and preserved throughout the
world. Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, pray for us.
Blessed Mother, pray for us. St. Jude, worker
of miracles, pray for us. Say this prayer for ni-
net days, nine times a day. Then publish this
prayer. Thank You, Jesus.
G.F.
PRAYER TO ST. JUDE This novena has
never been known to fail. This novena must be
said for 9 consecutive days. Publication must
be promised. Oh Holy St. Jude, Apostle and
Martyr, great in virtue and rich in miracles,
near kinsman of Jesus Christ, faithful inter-
cessor of all who invoke your special patron-
age in time of need, to you I have recourse
from the depth of my heart and humbly beg
to whom God has given great power to come
to my assistance. Help me in my present
urgent petition. In return, I promise to make

NEVER FAILING PRAYER TO ST. MICHAEL
- St. Michael, the Archangel, Defend Us In
Battle; Be Our Defense Against the Wicked-
ness and Snares of the Devil. May God Re-
buke Him We Humbly Pray; and Do You Oh
Prince of the Heavenly Host, By the Power
of God, Thrust Into Hell Satan and the Other
Evil Spirits Who Prowl About the World For the
Ruin of Souls. Amen. St. Michael, I Resort
to Your Protection and in My Faith, Offer This
Light Which Shall Burn Every Tuesday. Com-
fort Me in My Difficulties and While Lodging in
the House of Our Savior Intercede for Me and
My Family That We Will Be Able to Hold God
Close to Our Hearts and Be Provided for in All
of Our Necessities. I Beseech You, to Have
Infinite Pity in Regard to Favors I ask of You
(Name Them) So That I May Be Able To Over-
come All Difficulties as You Did the Dragons
at Your Feet. Our Father (Say 3 Times). Hail
Mary (Say 3 Times). Glory Be (Say 3 Times).
This Prayer is to be Said 9 Tuesdays, in Suc-
cession and Each Tuesday a Candle Shal
Be Lighted and a Copy of This Prayer Lft in
the Church to Help Another Soul in Distress
and Support the Devotion to St. Michael. This
Miraculous Saint Grants Everything, No Mat-
ter How Difficult, Before the Termination of 9
Tuesday. G.B.

PRAYER TO ST. JUDE This novena has
never been known to fail. This novena must be
said for 9 consecutive days. Publication must
be promised. Oh Holy St. Jude, Apostle and
Martyr, great in virtue and rich in miracles,
near kinsman of Jesus Christ, faithful inter-
cessor of all who invoke your special patron-
age in time of need, to you I have recourse
from the depth of my heart and humbly beg
to whom God has given great power to come
to my assistance. Help me in my present
urgent petition. In return, I promise to make
your name known and call you to be invoked.
St. Jude, pray for us all who invoke your aid.
Amen. Say 3 Our Fathers, 3 Hail Marys & 3
Gloria's. R.R.

MAYTHE SACRED Heart of Jesus be adored,
glorified, loved, and preserved throughout the
world. Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, pray for us.
Blessed Mother, pray for us. St. Jude, worker
of miracles, pray for us. Say this prayer for ni-
net days, nine times a day. Then publish this
prayer. Thank You, Jesus.
G.B.

My little angel mother, you are sooo missed. It's now
10 long years you have been gone. I miss your
personality, kindness, humor, consideration for others,
and all the love you generated. Someone posted a
paragraph in Facebook. When I read it, I immediately
thought of you. I also wished it were true. It said, "I
WISH THERE WAS A TELEPHONE IN HEAVEN
SO I COULD HEAR YOUR VOICE!"
Oh my little angel mother I do miss you and I love
you too much. L&e, i
