Blame St. Petersburg Anticipating a 25% increase in water and sewer rates from its supplier, the city of St. Petersburg, Gulfport city council voted Tuesday night to increase its water, sewer, and stormwater rates. By contract, the City of Gulfport cannot charge less than the city of St. Petersburg charges its residents. Since the city lacks the pipes to contract with another water supplier, it must contract with St. Petersburg for its potable water. Utility customers who incur the minimum charge by using 2,000 gallons of potable water or less per month will see an increase of $3.31; customers who use between 2,0001 and 4,000 gallons of potable water will see an increase of $6.27. Standby customers customers who have a utility account but have their service shut off will see a $1.80 increase.

Gabber September 19 September 25, 2013 7 Events, from front pageshe wanted city co-sponsored events to include a mandatory kids area, register with the state as a alcohol consumption to certain areas during these events. Councilwoman Salmon cited a lack of kids events at the past GeckoFest in conjunction with her wish to mandate childfriendly activities at all daytime events co-sponsored by the city; she also expressed a desire to limit the geographic boundaries of alcohol consumption at special events. After several minutes of listening to her arguments, Mayor Sam Henderson suggested tabling the issue for a workshop, suggesting that prolonged discussion would ultimately lead to such a workshop. Councilwoman Salmon wanted to discuss her proposed changes at the council meeting, but Mayor Henderson passed the gavel to the vice mayor to offer a second to the motion to table. Council approved tabling the coming next workshop in late October. Before that workshop, though, the city has several tentatively scheduled events council failed to debate or approve or disapprove Tuesday evening: the Gulfport Birthday Bash, on October 12, and the Gulfport Neighbors Day of Caring the following week. In addition, standbys that draw crowds from outside Gulfport lack approval: the next few Tuesday Markets and ArtWalks need city approval to take place. Although City Manager Jim OReilly has the authority to approve some events, others will require council approval, not his, he said after Tuesday nights meeting.

10 Gabber September 19 September 25, 2013 Letters Proud to call Gulfport home Dear Editor : As one of the moms mentioned in Cathy Salustris "Hard Candy" column of Sept. 5, 2013, I wanted to take the opportunity to make sure everyone truly knows how great our community is. As Cathy mentioned, my almost nineyear-old daughter Katie caught cat scratch fever at the end of July, which developed a rare complication called bacillary angiomatosis, necessitating surgery on her left hipbone and removal of a large abscess under her left armpit. Cat scratch fever isnt common to begin withthere are only 22,000 diagnosed cases in the U.S. every yearbut Katies case was so rare, she will go down into the Centers for Disease Control. I am happy to report Katie is doing phenomenally well and is expected to make a full recovery. The whole ordeal, however, was seven weeks of hellas any parent with a very sick child can attestand the support and love we received from the Gulfport community, in addition to our other friends and family, were instrumental in helping my partner Donna and I make it through this time: It was Lori Rosso of the Gulfport Chamber of Commerce who offered my little one a seat on the VIP balcony of the Peninsula Inn during Geckofest so she didnt have to miss it despite her lack of mobility (it was unfortunate Katies condition deteriorated to the point she had to be hospitalized prior to the event). It was Cathy Salustri arranging for our lawn to be taken care of and her offer to take care of our pets while we spent two weeks at All Childrens 24/7 at our daughters bedside. It was Councilwoman Jennifer Salmon, who is not even our city council representative (we are acquainted because our children go to school together), who offered her assistance in contacting code enforcement to explain our extenuating circumstances in case we couldnt get the lawn taken care of, and who arranged for our schools PTA to send Katie a warm get-well message while in the hospital. It was Gulfport Neighbors Margarete Tober who contacted me with concern to see if she could do anything for useven while battling a serious health issue of her own at the same time. It was Linda Craig of The Perfect Ten in the Art Village Courtyard and other Courtyard merchants who checked on me at work (Donna was on medical leave of absence from the wonderfully supportive Home Depot, but small business owners usually dont have that luxury) to see how we were doing and if there was anything they could do to help. I was walking out of my salon in the Courtyard only to hear half a dozen voices yell, Tiffany, how is Katie doing? every time I passed out of my doors (Note: Juju Stevens hugs are the BEST). Its no secret to any of us that Gulfportians scrap like a bunch of siblings over city issues now and again. But let one of us get hurt or have a need and we close ranks in a heartbeat. Weve seen it happen in this city time and time again. As Cathy said in her column, this sort of thing doesnt happen everywhere. But it is for sure one of the reasons Donna and I have made Gulfport our home for the past 13 years and why we choose to raise our child here. We are so proud to be a part of this amazing community. Thank you for your love and support from the bottom of our hearts.Tiffany Anderson-TaylorA return to code enforcement Dear Editor: Re: "Hard Candy", Sept. 12, 2013 issue. Cathy, as I read your column, I am surprised that you do not connect issues at hand. In your recent column, I agree with you on many parts: bike overpass, yes. Boardwalk, absolutely. Licensing landlords, no brainer, yes. But you have to have parameters and expectations in the form of codes to make positive changes happen. (i.e., I would love to see licensing landlords to make them have more responsibility on their properties). But if you do not enforce codes, what's the point? In St. Pete's blighted neighborhood, Childs Park, if I were a resident there and report a codes violation, I would receive more action from their codes department than I would from Gulfport. Look at Tomlinson Park. Part of my running course is through this park. But there are a few rough houses across from this park, more so than a couple of years ago. They are run down and nasty. My thoughts are, this is in Gulfport in this neighborhood? How bad will this become in 3 years? I know you live not far from this park, and as an invested homeowner, how can you One of these houses has a high turnover rate for occupants, most likely Section 8. Ok, we can't license the owner but maybe we could exercise the power of codes? But we stopped talking about "lawn furniture" and this vision of Gulfport has become acceptable. (By the way, I stopped running solo through Gulfport because I don't feel as safe as I once did, especially through Tomlinson and the spur. If I would run, it would be early morning. Or with someone else. I take my runs to other parts of Pinellas County.) I still spend time walking throughout the city and I'm surprised how dirty the city looks. Near my sister's house by Stetson, there is a street that must be avoided because it's too dangerous. Unbelievable. We hear about 49th St. and the crime but that crime is quietly growing within the there are no rules and consequences in place to help control it. I hope that by extending "olive branches", progressing the city with festivals and paving a path through Clymer Park will not turn into a "putting lipstick on a pig" type thing. Putting on blinders and having a viewpoint with tunnel vision is just an easy way for politicians to make themselves look grandiose while the real troubles of a city brew. Advise: if you don't like the 5th volleyball court, then don't like it. I felt that you were giving in. You many feathers in this town and I felt that you were indirectly apologizing for your previous opinions on the volleyball court. Leonardo Robledo
Gabber September 19 September 25, 2013 11 Porch Party, from front pageFloridas waters and has earned most of her living in or on the water; her resume includes the words dolphin trainer, SCUBA dive guide, museum director, and maritime historian. In 2012, she wrote a book on the history of shipping and pilotage on Tampa Bay for the Tampa Bay Pilots Association. During the project she learned about the evolution of the ranchos to early American military exploration, civilian settlement and the subsequent dredging and development of the Tampa Bay Estuary. History is a subject that is often dismissed as a static representation of the past with no relevance to the present, she says. This is, of course, a short-sighted perspective. In order to truly grasp where we are as a society, our impact on an environment and where this proverbial path we are set upon is taking us, we must be aware of where we have been and how we got to where we are now.

26 Gabber September 19 September 25, 2013 By Holiday Mathis The solar return to Libra creates a dynamic much like that of an intersection with a four-way stop the key decisions easier, everyone must pay careful attention and keep track of whose turn it is to proceed. And theres the added burden of responding to those who think its their turn whether it is or not. With awareness and timing, everyone will get where they need to go. Happy fall equinox! VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Its sometimes hard to separate who people really are from the story you have created of them. This week brings a rare opportunity to explore relationships at deeper levels. Your gift from the cosmos is clear vision pertaining to people that is unimpeded by assumptions and prejudices. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). If you make yourself too available, people wont respect your time. If you dont make yourself available enough, people will assume youre too busy, and they wont call. This week youll balance of social time and alone time. Your playful mood will make it fun to try out different styles and tactics. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). For you, it is a given that energy is real and perceivable through the senses. But because this way of interpreting the world is not for everyone, there will be many instances when it is better to act on your feelings without mention of how you came to your decision. You dont owe the world an explanation. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Youll decide how much personal energy to invest in a situation. Caring you to make a conscious decision about this instead of letting circumstances rope you into committing too much to something youre ultimately not that interested in. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). What you thought you were seeing with your own eyes was actually being framed by someone else. The framing can change everything, including your understanding of the truth. As soon as you take that frame away and observe anew, you will understand what you need to do next to be happy. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). The weeks efforts may feel small and repetitive, but that doesnt mean they are futile. As Mother Teresa said, We ourselves feel that what we are doing is just a drop in the ocean. But the ocean would be less because of that missing drop. A sweet acknowledgment on Friday will energize you. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Humans, as a rule, are delighted to encounter the familiar. While it is only natural to want to establish a point of reference, if you mistakenly label a situation familiar when its not, you will miss an opportunity for change, growth and adventure. So make few assumptions and stay keenly observant. ARIES (March 21-April 19). Sometimes the emotion you feel is not your own. When that emotion is happiness, you dont mind it so much. But if you inadvertently take on another persons sadness, it can be confusing and seem quite unfair. Realizing that you have this ability emotional immune system. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). When your attention is being pulled in several directions, it is nearly impossible to come up with an immediate and brilliant idea that will keep everyone happy. Thats why the work you do to get ready for the weeks events will be crucial to your enjoyment of them. Keep a running list of alternatives to plan A. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Resist the need to come up with reasons for everything that has happened. The exercise is futile because some of the causes are very distant from you, others are spiritual in nature and still others are so mysterious that they are unknowable. Accept each moment as a new starting place from which to move forward, not backward. CANCER (June 22-July 22). If you believe its your job to make others feel better, people around you will sense this belief, and suddenly it actually will become your job. Thats why its better for you to believe something different. Try this one on: Im a guide for those who are ready and willing to do the work it takes to help themselves. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Remember when you were in love with someone and still unsure of whether the other person felt the same way? The agonizing suspense! This week brings a far more bearable kind of anticipation. The stakes are lower than true love, but theres still something good hanging in the balance. Youll win either this time or the next. This Week's Birthdays : You have so much love to give, and you have extremely worthy recipients this year. Next month brings a breakthrough in business. In November, you will in some way contribute to the beautiful minds of the next generation. Relax and do nothing for long stretches in December. Its essential to the success of a January project. Plan trips carefully -your vacation time may be limited, but theres a chance to do something truly remarkable with it. A July investment pays off in the long term.

Gabber September 19 September 25, 2013 29 Email your r equest to News@theGabber .com Ha ve you got a question f or your city gove rnment? By Cathy SalustriCity of Gulfport: Sewer Repairs Q: What areas of the city have priority for sewer repairs? How much A: Street South and from Shore Boulevard South to 28th Avenue South. "This area was already televised," Public Works Director Don Sopak said. "We have $465,000 in the... budget for next year, and if we slip line the mostly eight inch sewer mains we can [repair]do about 10,000 linear feet." "Sliplining" refers to a method of repairing leaks that can also restore the structural stability of pipes. Gulfport could slipline the larger main sewer pipes but would not be able to repair as much of the system. "Larger sewer mains would reduce the linear feet as they cost more to slip line," Sopak said.

DUFFY, SR., born July 6, 1942 in Rochester, MN, to the late Edward J. and Phyllis A. Duffy, died Sunday, September 1, 2013, in St. Petersburg, FL. "No man could have wished for a more loyal friend. Peter was a rugged man with an eloquent mind, which he shared until the very end." -Anna Duffy was educated at Rochester public schools; became a scratch pro at the Rochester Country Club; served the US Navy from 1963-1966; Winona State College graduate in 1967; graduate of the University of Minnesota, 1971, the star pupil of John Berryman; University of British Columbia, 1974, the same year in which he wrote and traveled extensively throughout specialist, and wrote his second novel, in which he interviews Ravi Shankar, Frank Zappa, and Hunter S. Thompson; 1977-79, he wrote local histories for the Minnesota Chambers of Commerce, produced children's plays, and became a critic and reviewer of music and theater for various Minnesota and Wisconsin publications; 1979-87, became writer-in-residence at the Blueberry Patch in Gulfport, FL; 1988-92, became ESL territorial educator in the Marianas and Marshall Islands; 1993-98, lived with his family in Rochester working in construction, and continued his writing endeavors as a critic of writing and theater; 1998-2013, maintained his writer-inresidence at the Blueberry Patch. "While his rants may have been disrupted at times, his passing was peaceful." -Allan "Peter Duffy was a straight shooter; he was a caretaker and an ambassador. He cared deeply about the Patch, about Dallas, about the many Patch Pals who lived the Patch mission, and about doing whatever he could to keep the Patch alive in the community. I respect him, and I will miss him dearly. Peter always welcomed me, made the time to keep me up to speed on local happenings, reasonably clean mug and some hot the mornings that he had news to share. Duffy was proud of the work he did and the place he cared for; he always had something new he was excited to tell me about or show me on those slow, quiet mornings when the Patch was on hiatus from the crowds. But it was just me, him, some cats and chickens, and the little satellite peeking through the canopy. He had a great enthusiasm and a healthy pragmatism in his daily efforts to sustain the Patch and the philosophy of love, peace, and acceptance that makes the Blueberry Patch such an integral part of Gulfport. Peter leaves it up to us to ensure that the Patch will always be the haven for freedom of expression and freedom to enjoy life, with the freedom to live our heart, and for the freedom to be who we are in togetherness. Peter, we raise our cups to you and will remember you fondly every time we gather in your garden." -Mayor Sam "Peter, or Duffy by friends, was a man of very few words; when he spoke, he always spoke of freedom, knowledge, and authority, and we listened. He was a critical thinker, an educator, a philosopher, an academic, a student, a teacher, a listener, a writer, a novelist, a poet, a creator, a reader, and a man's man. He enjoyed his beer and his cigarettes, and he was a man who brought people and ideas together to create an amazing life not only as an artist, not only for his friends, but also for himself. He lived his life to the fullest. He was the greatest ambassador that I have ever known." -Ian "I knew Duffy for only a brief period, in what was to be the twilight of his life; his welcoming attitude and kindred spirit made the handful of hours we spent together feel like I'd known him for a lifetime. He was, in an instant, an instructor, a beer buddy, a patriarch, a critic, a listener, and a friend. Duffy was a whip-smart, grouchy old cuss with a warm heart that shone far bigger and brighter than his back yard someone that any real man should aspire to be, and forever a role model for me. He never forget him." -Big Nick "When you visualize Rip Van Winkle, you visualize someone who looks like Peter Duffy, except that Duffy was awake his whole life so much so that
Gabber September 19 September 25, 2013 35 he became known for his quick jibes. He was irascible and humorous, curmodgeonly yet kind, ultimately unforgettable." -Cigar Tom Who survives him? His son and daughter-in-law, Peter Jr. and Miso Duffy, Osaka, Japan; brothers Edward J., Rochester, MN, and David and Neva, Stone Lake, WI; sisters Nancy A. Elkins, Bend, OR, and Mary K. and Mark James, Rochester MN; two grandsons, Taihei Duffy Dallas Bohrer and a great number of Patch Pals. What survives him are his accomplishments in literature, his kindness to children, his love of art and music, and all of his great friendships with the many people he touched.HOENSTINE, E. SAMUEL, 96, of South Pasadena, passed away Sept. 12, 2013. Survived by son, Sam; and daughter, Phebe Kerr. Service being planned for the Fountains in South Pasadena.

36 Gabber September 19 September 25, 2013 Somethin on my mind Somethin on my mindBy Bill Northr op B_Northr op@theGabber. com Enjoy Your ChainsNext time you go to your doctor think twice about answering the questions he (she) asks you. What you say goes into a national database for your medical records and potentially will be accessible by government bureaucrats as well as medical professionals. It's all about the electronic medical records that have been mandated for all doctors under the Affordable Care Act, otherwise known as ObamaCare. While on the surface, it is a positive development. Nicely typed records generally beat scribbled notes and able to tap-in, electronically, to your records. The theory is that if you are hospitalized in California medical personnel there can tap into your Florida medical data base. In practice, that has not been easy to achieve. Computer program compatibility (not every doctor or hospital has the same system) is not achievable. So, while it might be easy to do this in a region or within a hospital or physicians' group, it is not so easy to do beyond that. There is also a question of information overload and whether every doctor need to see everything. Those are solvable problems. But, there's the serious matter of privacy. In spite of all the HIIPA (I'm not going to write it out) regulations about privacy, the Center for Medicare and Medicaid at the direction of the Health and Human Services Administration is creating a health database from the individual in ObamaCare. Physicians will be required to provide the information through incentives and disincentives: pay for cooperations and monetary punishment for not cooperating and complying. It's all for your own good. The government is interested in your behavior such as your sex life (number of partners, presumably past and present, diseases, infections, preferences and obsessions), alcohol use, drug and tobacco use, eating habits (think soft drinks, fatty foods and sugar), hobbies, interests, whether you own guns or knives or other harmful things, what your work is, what your leisure activities are, what you read and what you watch, what you think, how you think, what your emotional problems are, what your friends think of you, and what you think of you. Perhaps I exaggerate. But, not so much. The questions will come from the government as needed and your medical professionals will be the "voluntary" (if they want to get paid) collectors. Asking the collectors not to record your comments for the record, will subject them to the possibility of breaking the law. Government "sting" operations are very likely based upon past practices regarding Medicare and Medicaid. Refusal to answer affects your medical records and, maybe, in the future any subsidies you might receive for the purchase of government medical insurance. As for who gets to see the records, someone has to correlate the data. Consider a few things: The National Security Agency already has tapped into your communications and the Internal Revenue Service has already targeted political groups and individuals who don't agree with the liberal (they call themselves "progressives" now) agenda and hackers can hack into anything and feed the information out to whatever social media is convenient. Guess who is in charge of eligibility for ObamaCare? The IRS. Others with an interest in the data include Homeland Security, Social Security Agency, and the educational community. This is a database that will not be inviolate and makes a mockery of all the hullabaloo about privacy of medical records. In fact, it makes a mockery of individual liberties. But, hey, if you don't have anything to hide it's OK, isn't it? What to do? For starters contact your Democrat party friends and elected passed without a single Republican vote. This is the liberal-progressivedemocrat party doctrine and big brother collective government agenda in a nutshell. And so far, I don't recall a whimper of protest from elected Democrats. Maybe it is your agenda too. If so, enjoy. For the rest of us we don't enjoy the chains.

Gabber September 19 September 25, 2013 47 No One Gives a CrapAt the end of the day, if it isnt about ducks, apparently no one gives a crap. And since this column was supposed to focus on how the city is failing to repair an alarmingly damaged sewer system, the no one gives a crap part isnt just whistling Dixie. But in the end, if it isnt ducks, or dogs, or chickens, no one cares. I wish that werent true, but it seems, increasingly, if it isnt about ducks, we dont care. See, heres what happened: I went to the Horse and Jockey to verify that theyd reopened after a six month hiatus where I couldnt buy a Scotch Egg anywhere, and I started talking to a neighbor about the citys sewers and why only about three people cared that they were on the brink of collapse. Half jokingly, she pointed out that no one seemed to notice city issues that were not duck-related. I started to laugh at that, but midchortle, a woman Id never met before approached our table and interrupted with, Youre talking about ducks. You must be with the Gabber. We spent the next seven minutes discussing duck-related issues. I and how she felt about their current state of disrepair, and she developed a pressing need to be elsewhere. And so this is my life now: Duckopalypse. But even worse? People really do seem to care more about ducks than they do the sewers which, seriously, are a far bigger problem. No one listens to Don Sopak, our public works director, when he says that the entire system needs replacing. Please pay attention here; I promise to resume all duck-related reporting in short order. No one out there seems to care if the sewers fail, and that disturbs me. Because sewage collection, treatment, and disposal, like clean water and trash collection, doesnt make the top ten list of hot topics for many folks. Well, thats not quite true talk about raising the utility bill rates and people freak out. I heard quite a bit of complaining this Tuesday night at the Gulfport city council meeting from people who didnt want the city to raise their water or sewer rates and it made me want to scream. I mean, come on, folks, were living on the edge of paradise. This isnt Syracuse or Cincinnati; we live in Florida, moments from the gorgeous sand of the barrier islands. We have roughly 25,000 days of sunshine every year; we wear shorts on Christmas. It doesnt get much better than this. People save their whole lives to retire here. Why should any of us get to live here as cheaply as people who live in misery in the blizzards of the north? Paradise should have a price tag, especially when we tax our environment to live in paradise. Thats why I wholeheartedly support a dramatic rate increase in water, sewer, and trash in Gulfport. By dramatic, I mean I would support doubling or tripling the rates. See, county. Pinellas County has no water sources inside its borders. We take water at a price, of course from Pasco and Hillsborough counties. We dont have enough water to support our bloated needs take a look at the lush green grass you see during even the hottest months and yet when were asked to pay a couple dollars more, we balk. We fume at the idea that we have to pay for safe, clean water, or that it costs money to take it away and clean it when weve contaminated it with last nights indulgences. Look, its the law of supply and want to remain so, no one dares use out how to pay for paradise. You want to live cheap? Move to Nebraska. No offense, Nebraska, but you dont have a lot else to offer. Down here, we have sun-drenched beaches, emerald water, and high utility bills. Thats because we have too many people here, using resources not readily accessible. More than that, though, complaining about high utility bills just makes us sound like spoiled Americans. I realize we could provide things cheaper, if our wholesaler St. Petersburg would allow it. Which they wont, but that shouldnt matter. Water is a limited resource, and cleaning up either. We can no longer inject raw sewage into wells, which we used to do, because the state scientists can seep into our water supply. We had to build plants to treat it before Given what you get safe water and reasonably environmentally sound practices that deal with sewage and garbage Gulfport should charge more. The average utility customer will see less than a $10 increase this year. For that low price, we get peace of mind. Except, of course, that those aging sewer lines are still out there, not doing too well. Im not telling secrets: Mr. Sopak never misses a chance to remind council the lines need repair. Honestly, I am amazed no one stood up at the council meeting and demanded the city use sewers now. After all, when the sewers fail, where will the ducks go the bathroom? Please send all duck and sewer related correspondence to CathySalutsri@theGabber.com.
48 Gabber September 19 September 25, 2013 By Robert J. Myers, Esq. Why Buy-Sell Agreements are Important (Part 1) If you own a company and have a partner or partners, have you ever considered what would happen should one of you die? Hopefully, you won't have to face this situation, but if you do, a buysell agreement can allow for the continuance of the company as for you, your partner(s), and your family. A buy-sell agreement not only protects against the death of protection if a partner retires, resigns or becomes disabled. Let's look at a situation where there was no buysell agreement in place. Ms. Smith and Mr. Gonzales are equal partners of XYZ Services Company. They have determined that XYZ is worth $2 million. They each own $1 million of ABC stock and they each draw an annual salary of $150,000. When Mr. Gonzales died, his stock worth $1 million will pass to his estate. However, the stock will pay no dividends because all earnings are retained by XYZ. Therefore, Mr. Gonzales' family will be left with a non-income producing and illiquid asset. Mr. Gonzales' only return from XYZ was his salary which, of course, ceased upon his death. The Gonzales family could appeal to Ms. Smith to pay dividends on the stock, but why would Ms. Smith want to pay dividends? Salaries are a tax-deductible business expense but dividends are not. Also, dividends would have to be paid on all outstanding shares, including those held by Ms. Smith. Ms. Smith also has a potential problem. The Gonzales family holds half of XYZ's stock--what effect will this have on the long-term development plans of the business? Another problem that the Gonzales family and Ms. Smith have is how to determine the value of XYZ stock. An interest in a closely held company is often an unmarketable asset and placing a value on the stock for estate tax purposes could factors affect the fair market value of a closely held business, including general business trends, the outlook condition of the company and its earnings power. While Ms. Smith and Mr. Gonzales may have felt they knew the value of XYZ's stock before Mr. Gonzales died, unless the value is in a formal agreement the taxation authorities are likely to get closely involved in the valuation of XYZ's stock and try to justify its highest value. The valuation of the stock will create Gonzales estate. The executor will likely want to place the lowest value on the stock in order to minimize estate tax liability. However, estate taxation is not the only concern when placing a value on a closely held business. The step-up in cost basis that is afforded to all capital assets at death can result in no income tax being imposed on the sale following death. This has to be scrutinized rather closely in light of the estate tax rate that would be paid if the value of the business was increased. If an agreement on the value of XYZ's stock cannot be reached, the matter may have to be resolved in court, wasting considerable time and money. A properly designed buy-sell agreement can help prevent many of these problems. It can provide liquidity for the family of the deceased, ensure the continuance of the company, and establish the value of the company's stock. In our next article, we will explore together how a buy-sell agreement between Ms. Smith and Mr. Gonzales would lessen some of the uncertainties in their business relationship as well as provide for an orderly transition of the business upon Mr. Gonzales' death.
