Visitors, McDonald's Send
Condiments to the Troops







.












Linda Little and Leonard Jordon live in Miami but visit St. Pete Beach
every year for five weeks. For the last two years they have purchased
several bags of items needed by our troops. St. Pete Beach Support
Our Troops sends these items in the care packages the organization
mails overseas each month.
This year, they not only purchased supplies, they also contacted
Caspers Company McDonald's restaurants (based in Tampa) and
asked the company to donate something to the program. Caspers gave
them 1500 ketchup packets, 500 grape jam packets, 500 strawberry
jam packets, 250 mustard packets, and 204 mayonaisse packets, all of
which will go overseas to the troops.


No Tax Increase,
But You Could
Pay More Taxes
By Cathy Salustri

Although Gulfport city
council didn't raise the
property tax rate, some
Gulfportians could pay
higher taxes in the coming
year. At a special budget
meeting last week Gulfport
city council voted for a second
and final time to approve the
budget City Manager O'Reilly
presented them. Mr. O'Reilly
presented a budget based on
no tax rate increase.
Just as they did last year,
Gulfport property owners will
pay 4.039 mils of property
tax, or $4.039 per thousand
dollars of taxable value. A
home valued at $100,000
with no exemptions will pay
$403.90 to Gulfport. Some
homeowners could see an
increase in this portion of
their tax bill if their property
increased in value over
the past year. According to
City Manager Jim O'Reilly,
property values in Gulfport
increased, on average, less
than 1%, by .76%.
Other taxing authorities, such
as Pinellas County and the
schools, take a larger chunk
of taxes from Gulfportians.
Last year, Pinellas County
taxes property owners 5.0105
mils, and the schools levied
5.5540 and 2.7480 on state
and local levels, respectively.
The health department,
EMS, Pinellas Planning
Council, Southwest Florida
Water Management District,
Juvenile Welfare Board and
Suncoast Transit Authority
all taxed property owners less
than one mil per agency.


Flamingo in a Striped Dress


At last Thursday
evening's Gulfport Area of
Chamber of Commerce
mixer, Dolly Tickell, dressed
in pink stripes, talked about
the Pink Flamingo Tour of
Homes. Tickell chairs the
Tour of Homes committee.
This year the Tour will take
place on November 16;
tickets cost $15 in advance
and $20 the day of the
event.
The mixer took place at
American Momentum bank
in St. Petersburg and had
several guests from the St.
Petersburg area.

Zerran Vino 2011 Montsant, Spain
Zerran reveals abundant kirsch, lavender, black raspberry and dusty, loamy,
earthy scents intermixed with notions of spring flowers and blackberries.
There is not any oak evident in this dense effort. Its completeness and overall
equilibrium are impressive, and this great value should drink well through
2018, possibly longer.
This silky smooth Spanish red has plenty of full-bodied, brambly, briary, rich
dark fruit along with nice notes of blackberry, blueberry and spice supported
by some serious structure.
This wine is the best wine on the street today! And scores a 92.1 points by
Parker.

Water Rate Rebates?
Dear Editor: With the unavoidable
increase in Gulfport's water bills, I
believe the city should offer a rebate
to consumers that have low water
usage and income.
Since Gulfport buys its water from
St. Pete, the Gulfport City Manager
explained at last Tuesday evening's
council meeting, that bylaw Gulfport
can not charge less for water than
St. Petersburg.
I think that the low usage people
could get a rebate or credit at the end
of the year for those who qualify.
I would like the City Council to
consider this option.
Last Tuesday at the city council
meeting I was not clear in the
message I was trying convey.
Stan Kreuter


Just the facts, please
Dear Editor: Once again, Mr.
Northrop has used the Gabber's
pages to spread his political
viewpoints and misinformation.
This time, the Affordable Care Act --
Obamacare -- is in his sights. Again.
One can only wish that Mr. Northrop
would take the time to research his
subject matter more deeply than
what he hears on Fox noise.
Mr. Northrop, this time, insinuates
that "the government" is behind
the collection and maintenance
of massive amounts of personal
medical and other information. Well,
it's all in how one says that, and of
course anything "the government"
does is bad, in Mr. Northrop's world.
It's true that the ACA encourages
the collection of significant medical
information, but it is also true that
the databases will not maintain that
kind of information in a personally
identifiable way. The goal is to
improve the overall health of the
American public, and the first step
is to understand what's happening
now. Other incentives of the ACA
include voluntary smoking cessation
and nutrition programs. And yes,
these are for our own good and may
even result in a diminution of health
care costs and the improvement of
the overall health of the populace.
Gasp!


What Mr. Northrop neglects
to mention is that the ACA
also specifically requires that
information must be collected and
maintained in accordance with the
Health Insurance Portability and
Accountability Act, or HIPAA. (Mr.
Northrop has misidentified that law
as "HIIPA." Perhaps if he had taken
the time to look it up or even to write
it out, he would at least have gotten
the acronym correct.)
So instead of acknowledging
that the information must be
maintained in compliance with the
most stringent health care privacy
law ever passed in this country, he
instead absurdly compares that with
the NSA's collecting totally different
information in totally different
ways. [He also mentions the IRS
targeting groups whose purpose does
not comport with the "liberal (they
call themselves 'progressives now)
agenda," neglecting to mention that
the IRS did the exact same thing
with more progressive groups.] The
implication, of course, is that soon
the jack-booted federal health police
will knock on your door and demand
that you stop having so much sex, or
maybe start having more. Perhaps I
exaggerate, but not so much.
This is not the first time I have
submitted objections to Mr.
Northrop's columns, and sadly, it
probably will not be the last. While
I often find myself disagreeing with
Mr. Northrop's viewpoints, my main
objection is that he usually simply
spouts the right-wing malarkey we
are fed by other sources without
filtering it through any actual
research or critical thinking. We
have some serious issues to consider
in this country, but the discussion
does not benefit from folks like Mr.
Northrop continuing to throw out
misinformation and facts skewed
only to one political point of view.
Lee Nell

Dear Editor: I'm a part-time
Gulfport resident and occasional
Gabber reader. I'm writing in regard
to the editorial "Something On My
Mind" column, specifically the article
from Sept. 19, 2013.
While I value the freedom to write/


publish editorial comment, this
article simply includes numerous
factual errors with respect to
provisions of HIPPA (spelled wrongly
in the article), the Affordable Care
Act, and the HITECH Act (which
was part of the 2009 stimulus
bill (ARRA), not the 2010 ACA
-- a fact your author seems to not
understand). Moreover, HITECH
does not provide funding for nor
seek to create a national database
of patients' healthcare records. In
fact, under HITECH, government
agencies and private industry have
worked to develop secure methods
of point-to-point health information
exchange. This, for example,
enables a primary care physician to
securely and electronically send a
referral request including pertinent
elements of the patient's record to
a cardiologist for treatment. The
federal government isn't tracking
what's sent about whom... they're
incentivizing providers to merely
demonstrate such "meaningful use"
of their electronic health record
software.
As a professor of health informatics
and expert in this field, it's sad to
see health information technology,
which has historically enjoyed
bi-partisan support due to its ability
to improve patient outcomes and
reduce medical expenses, receive
such treatment by a misinformed
editorial writer who's clearly blinded
by his political leanings. Of course,
he's entitled to his opinion.
However, it seems that the Gabber
has a journalistic responsibility for
ensuring that even editorial articles
are factually correct. If not, what
value does your publication provide
as an information source? This is
especially true as many of Gulfport's
seniors will benefit greatly from
the more tightly coordinated care
made possible by the digitization
of their medical records. Do you
have any idea how many adverse
medical events happen each year
simply because doctors can't easily
share basic problem, medication,
and allergy lists? Data security and
patient privacy legitimate concerns,
but there's far more to the electronic
medical records story.

Will Stay-at-Home
Mom Be Eligible for
Social Security?
Dear Mary: I'm a stay-at-home
mom and haven't had a paycheck
since I was a teenager. Will I be
eligible for Social Security benefits?
-- Emily, Oregon
Dear Emily: If you are married,
you will be eligible. Your Social
Security retirement benefits are tied
to your husband's. You can file when
he does, provided you're at least 62
at that time. Your monthly check
will be equal to 50 percent of his, if
he waits until "full retirement age" to
begin collecting benefits (65, 66 or 67
depending on the year he was born).
If he opts to begin drawing early at
62, then your benefit will be reduced
to 37.5 percent of his monthly check.
(If you're now single, divorced or
widowed, the amounts vary.) We're
not talking a lot of money here under
the very best of circumstances, so
plan on it as a supplement, not
enough to live on.
To get help, go to the Social Security
Administration website, SSA.gov,
and check out the FAQs. This site is
remarkably user-friendly.
Dear Mary: If my parents die with

or you are a joint account holder
on their credit card accounts. Your
parents' debts will be paid out of
their estate (everything they own,
including real estate).
Anyone they owe has to get in line
to be paid, with secured creditors
like their mortgage lender in first
position. Then come their unsecured
creditors, like credit card companies.
Once all their debts are paid from
their assets, anything that remains
is divided up amongst their heirs.
If your parents die with few to no
assets, their creditors eat the loss.
They cannot come after you.
Dear Mary: I'm recently divorced.
My husband handled the finances;
now I'm on my own. Where do I
start? -- Betty, email
Dear Betty: You need a budget.
This just means "pre-spending" your
money on paper first, before you
deposit your check.
Make two lists: Income and
Expenses. Under Income, list the


sources (paycheck, child support,
alimony, savings, settlements, etc.)
and the amounts.
Under Expenses, list all of your bills
and obligations, starting with your
rent or mortgage payment, food, car
payment, utilities, clothes, etc.
Add up each list, then subtract
your expenses from your income. If
your expenses are more than your
income, start crossing out things that
are optional. Carefully weigh the
expenses you believe are essential.
Cable TV isn't essential. Food is
vital, of course, but try shopping
at discount markets, rather than
going out to restaurants. You need
a car, but not a gas-guzzler with big
payments.
Once your expenses and income
are in line with each other, use your
budget as your monthly financial
road map. Consult it often, and
you'll find yourself in control of your
money, instead of the other way
around. To get help, type "budget
worksheet" into an Internet search
engine, and you'll find many free
forms and Excel spreadsheets to
develop a spending plan.

"r ou could say my
Smotto is been there,

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

"literally thousands" of
bankruptcies means that he

kind of problem or issue that

secondly, he had to file a

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."

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.

We understand this is not
an easy process or
concept to grasp. We
would like an opportunity
to explain in depth and in
terms that are relatable to
you, the homeowner, just
what this means and how
it could be of benefit to
you and your future.
Every situation is differ-
ent and therefore has a
different solution, so
please call us and let us
discuss what is best for
you, and then you can
decide what course to
take. Remember there
are "LEGAL SOLUTIONS
FOR YOUR FUTURE" and
we would like the chance
to show those to you.
Only you can make the call.
Evening and weekend
appointments are available.

"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.
'" 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

general, ECF requirements

Come Join the
Historical Dog Parade
For the first time ever, the Gulfport
Historical Society will make four-
legged Gulfportians part of its annual
birthday bash. On Saturday, October
12 at 10:30 a.m., every Gulfport
dog is welcome to walk in the first
annual historic doggy parade. Bring
your best friend and let Gulfport
historians photograph him or her for
future generations.
This parade will be a fun celebration
of our pets, and with Halloween just


a few weeks away, pets and owners
in and out of costume alike will be
welcomed.
The walk costs nothing. A
photographer will record the parade
- and every subsequent one so
future generations can see Gulfport's
dogs of today.
The Gulfport Historical Society
seeks small donations for the goody
bags. If you or your business have
any pet (or human) related items for
the goody bags, please contact Lynda
Shehan at 323-2892.

Repeatedly being bullied during

BODY OF KNOWLEDGE
Your gums renew themselves every
1 to 2 weeks.
STORIES FOR THE
WAITING ROOM
A Yale University study estimates
that widespread rejection of estrogen
therapy, prompted 10 years ago by
reports that it increased women's
risk of uterine cancer, has most likely
led to almost 50,000 unnecessary
deaths during this period among
women aged 50 to 69 who have had a
hysterectomy.
Before 2002, doctors routinely
recommended estrogen therapy
for older women who had had a
hysterectomy. More than 90 percent
of these patients used the therapy to
treat symptoms such as hot flashes
and to prevent osteoporosis and
other diseases related to menopausal
hormone deficiency. Today, said
researchers, only about 10 percent of
these women use estrogen therapy.
BEST MEDICINE
Not feeling well, a man visits his
doctor. After examining him, the
doctor gives the man three bottles of
pills.
"Take this green pill with a big glass
of water when you wake up," instructs
the doctor. "At lunch, take the blue
pill with a big glass of water. Then,
just before bed, take the red pill with
another big glass of water."
The man is alarmed to require so
much medication.
"Doc, what exactly is wrong with
me," he cries.
"You're not drinking enough
water."
OBSERVATION
"It is hard to look at the tumor
and not come away with the feeling
that one has encountered a powerful
monster in its infancy." --Cancer
physician Siddhartha Mukherjee
(1970 --), author of "The Emperor of
All Maladies"

toitloroscope Guide


By Holiday Mathis
The person who says "there are no
dumb questions" may be overstating
things. All questions are not
equal. Some lead to happiness and
awakening, while others bring on a
nagging sense of general anxiety. The
Libra sun, compelled to weigh and
balance and account for everything,
squares Pluto in responsible
Capricorn. Ask quality questions --
the kind that might lead to action
and improvement, not existential
angst.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Most
people believe they smile more than
they actually do. You're different,
and that's why someone falls in love
with your smile and then with you.
You don't wait for the right time to
project magnetism and heart. Any
old time is good enough for you,
especially when you feel as happy as
you do this week.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21).
This week you experience events
differently from the way the others
involved experience them. An
objective witness would say that
your way is factually accurate, but
that doesn't matter in the least to the
others, each being invested in his or
her own point of view. Getting along
is more important than being right.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21).
Because your mind is so curious and
your love of learning so deep, you
will always have more questions
than answers. But that doesn't mean
you're not qualified to teach what you
already know. You will be exceedingly
lucky this week when you share your
considerable knowledge and wisdom.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19).
The rules of right and wrong do not
seem as clear-cut to you this week as
they did last week, and this might be
confusing. If you think of morality
in terms of helping and harming,
decisions might be easier for you to
make. Know who might be helped
and/or harmed before you make your
move.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You
want everyone to be honest and do
the right thing, especially yourself.
You don't have the stomach to be


"bad," because you'll always get
caught (by yourself!), and it's just not
worth it to you. Just know that not
everyone thinks like this. This week
you'll figure out whom you can and
can't trust.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You
know when a person is humoring
you. That quality of attention can
be more undermining to your self-
esteem than outright rejection. But
take heart, because in the end those
who don't take you seriously will
be sorry. You'll put your ideas into
action and see winning results that
include more money and friends.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). It is
sometimes hard for you to direct
compassion toward yourself. Realize
that you are hard on yourself in a
way that others are not and never
would be. To accept that you're not
always going to do the right thing is
to accept your humanity. It is divine
to forgive, though, even when the one
you are forgiving is you.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). If
you find yourself full of doubts this
week, it's actually a good thing --
it's a sign that you are intelligent,
that you care and that you want
something from the situation that
you don't feel completely entitled to.
Entitlement breeds an off-putting
sort of confidence. Your humility and
vulnerability are part of what makes
you great.
GEMINI (iIl.n 21-June 21). You
could really use a stellar idea. That's
why too much time spent giving your
attention to entertainment, games
and devices is dangerous this week.
In order to get your good idea, you
need mental space and maybe some
boredom, too. How are you going to
get any ideas if you don't let yourself
daydream?
CANCER (June 22-July 22).
Psychological studies suggest that
women are generally better at
picking up nonverbal cues than men,
but this week gender won't seem to
matter as much as astrological sign.
You're a nonverbal cue master, and
everyone else is relatively clueless.
To communicate well, you'll have to
spell everything out.


LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Much growth
comes of your journey this week.
You'll realize there's something you
haven't totally accepted and that it is
indeed acceptable. On the other side
of this hurdle, you'll find a sense of
identity. You'll see how your parents'
beliefs have imprinted on you, and
you'll also understand how to exert
your free will.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). In some
religions, serious devotees give up
their past identities to start anew in
the religion. That is an easier way
to change than trying to promote
continuity with the past without
letting it trap you in your old self. A
breakthrough in your personal life
will make you feel like you can finally
move forward.
This Week's Birthdays: You have
greater control over your time this
month, which allows you to focus
on what you want instead of on
what your boss requires and other
responsibilities. An adventure in
November is intellectual -- your mind
goes first, and later you'll physically
travel to a similar place. You will
pay off a debt in February, which is
a relief and the start of a financial
turnaround. March and June are
your best times to heal relationships,
especially the one that's captivated so
much of your emotion for years now.

Popcorn is for Eating,
Not Ceilings
By Bob Miano, DeGeorge Ceilings
First of all, the builder that put
that wonderful popcorn ceiling in
your home actually meant well. You
see throughout the late 70s and 80s
popcorn ceilings were the rage. It
allowed the builders a ceiling option
that required almost effortless one
step installation and most homes
could be pop-corned in just one day.
Apparently no good deed goes
unpunished. The reality of the
popcorn ceiling is actually somewhat
horrifying. You can't clean it; you
can't dust it, and last but not least it
doesn't paint well.
So what exactly is the anecdote to
these hideous popcorn nightmares?
You could always scrape it off, sand
it, retexture, and paint it, but that
seems like a lot of work and expense
to end up with a new ceiling that
barely looks any different than the
original popcorn ceiling.
Many industry trends are pointing
towards more elegant choices, such
as beautiful tongue and groove
wood ceilings, particularly in coastal
communities such as ours. They offer
a great deal of character and charm
to your home, and are often finished
with complimenting crown moldings.
They can be done with both color and
wood species to compliment most any
setting.
Another great ceiling choice would
be pressed tin. Whether it is actual
authentic pressed tin in copper or
brass or a faux tin with a custom
color glaze finish, this type of ceiling
adds texture and depth of dimension
to a room.
Seek the help of a professional. Have
them visit your home, bring samples
and above all make sure that they are
listening!

30 Years at the
Senior Center!
It's the Gulfport Multipurpose Senior
Center's 30th Birthday Celebration
on Wednesday, October 9 at
1:30p.m. and they are commemorating
with a sock hop, a photo booth and
munchies provided by Brentwood.
Celebrate their birthday with them!
Space is limited, so get your free ticket
today, compliments of the Center.

Firefighters Patrick Strong samples the breakfast St. Pete Beach firefighters
sold at the citywide garage sale Saturday morning. The firefighter's union,
Local 2266, sold sodas, water, breakfast, and grilled hot dogs just outside
the Community Center. Local 2266 will give the proceeds to an as-of-yet
undetermined charity. Last year, firefighters gave the money from selling food
at several events to the Gulf Beaches Historical Society and the Pass-a-Grille

Strong, the newest firefighter on St. Pete Beach, joked about his status as

SPoints On Pets


By Matthew Margolis
Your Dog's Personality
"When Good Dogs Do Bad Things"
is the title of a book on dogs that I
co-authored with Mordecai Siegal.
Chapter three is titled, "Your Dog's
Personality." That's right, your dog's
personality is weighty enough to
warrant an entire chapter in a book.
When we discuss a dog's
personality, it's important to note
the difference between personality
and temperament. Temperament is
one's natural disposition, determined
by genes. Personality, as written
in chapter three, "encompasses
genetically derived behavior along
with environmentally influenced
behavior, which can, to some degree,
be modified."
Understanding your dog's personality
is infinitely useful. In fact, it's wise to
get to know a dog's personality before
he becomes your dog. Think of it as
a chance to choose a relative. And
choose carefully. This dog will be your
responsibility and a big part of your
life for the next 15 years or so.
There are six canine personality
types, and any one dog can have
up to five of the six types. The only
personality types that are exclusive
of each other are "nervous" and
"sedate." There's no such thing as a
relaxed, nervous dog.
The six personality types are:
hardheaded/stubborn, laid-back/
sedate, excitable/nervous, timid/shy,
responsive and aggressive.
There are five tests that will help
you unravel the mystery of your
pup's personality. The tests and their
general purpose are listed below. For
detailed information on how to safely
and effectively administer these tests,
please read "I Just Got a Puppy.
What Do I Do?" This book takes you
through each test, step by step, and is
available in your public library, your
local bookstore or at unclematty.com.
--The Social Attraction Test
measures your pup's reaction to
people. As you kneel down and talk
to your dog affectionately or employ a
high-pitched whine, he'll get excited

Gabber September 26 October 2, 2013


or bark, back away or approach
you playfully, whine back at you,
stare you down, and on and on. His
reaction will give you insight into his
personality.
--The Sound Response Test is
designed to determine whether your
dog is noise shy, and it's done in two
parts. First, shake a can containing
about 10 coins, obscuring the can
behind your back. Second, toss the
can about 10 feet away from the
dog. The dog's response to noise,
both when the source is known and
unknown, will tell you what kind of
behavior problems you might be faced
with and how to effectively deal with
them.
--The Reaction to Discipline Test is
used to determine whether your dog
has been hit or punished by hand or
with a newspaper on various parts
of his body. This is an important
test, as the dog may have negative
associations with the human hand
that could lead to aggression. It is a
test that is given in two parts -- one
using the hand, the other using a loud
voice. Both parts require caution, and
neither should be given to a dog that
has previously displayed aggressive
behavior like snarling, growling or
biting.


--The Dominant or Subordinate Test
will determine whether your dog has a
dominant or subordinate personality.
The test involves lying your dog on his
back and gauging his reaction to your
dominant position. Neither dominant
nor submissive is bad. It will simply
tell you what to expect and how to
effectively relate to your dog.
--The Physical Sensitivity Test is
not so much about personality as it
is about your dog's tolerance for pain
and discomfort. Understanding how
sensitive your dog is to pain will help
you prevent dog bites.
I recently administered all five
personality tests to six golden
retriever puppies from the same
litter. The dogs had the same genes
and were the same breed, yet all six
dogs had their own unique reactions
to the tests and, therefore, their own
unique personalities.
Please be sure to thoroughly educate
yourself before putting your dog to
these tests. Vital procedures must
be followed in order to prevent harm
to you or your dog, and in order to
gain the valuable insight you seek.
Getting safely acquainted with your
dog's personality is the smartest first
step you as a dog owner can take.

Add a New Front Door
in the Old Door Jamb
Dear Pat: My wood front door
needs to be replaced, but I want to
save some money and not remove the
entire frame and jamb. What is the
best way to install a new wood front
door in the existing door frame? --
Sissy M.
Dear Sissy: The door itself usually
takes much more abuse over the years
than the door frame and jamb. You
can save some money by installing
just the door itself, but it often is
easier to remove everything and
install a new pre-hung door. Check


Repair & Fix
the pricing at your local home center
store before making your decision on
just a new door or a complete pre-
hung door.
To install a new wood door in the
existing door frame, accurately
measure the height, width and
thickness of your existing door.
Purchase a new door that is as close
as possible in size to the existing door.
Most likely, the old door is a standard
size. None of the dimensions of the
new door should be smaller than the
existing door. An edge of a door can
always be trimmed down, but it is
extremely difficult to add to the size.

new door with a strip or two of blue
masking tape on the hinge side. It
might sound silly, but when working
on a door and flipping it over several
times on a work table, it is easy to get
mixed up on which side is which. This
is particularly important so the latch
edge of the door is properly beveled.
You will need the assistance of a
helper to handle the door. If the door
thresholdis adjustable, adjust it to its
lowest setting on the floor. Place the
new door in the existing door frame,
and have the helper hold it against
the door jamb. Using tapered wooden
shims, shim it up from the threshold
so it is centered in the door frame.
If your house is very old, the door
frame may no longer be square. This
will be apparent when the new door
is shimmed and centered in the door
frame. Plane a slight bit off the top
of the door (called cheating), so it fits
more evenly along the top. Although
this step is not necessary, it looks
better from indoors when the gap at
the top of the frame is more uniform.
With the door securely held in the
frame, mark the vertical locations of
the hinges using a scribe. The hinge
locations determine the finished
position of the door. If you have to
remove material from the width for
a good fit, it should be removed from
the hinge side. It is better to leave
more material on the latch side in
case you install a deep lockset.
When trimming the door to size,
always score the cutline with a sharp
utility knife. This minimizes the
chances of tearing out some wood
when the saw blade cuts through the
wood surface. Using a circular saw,
cut within about 1/16 inch of the
scribed line. Remove the remainder
of the wood to the scribe line with a
plane.
Next, bevel the side edges of the door
so it clears the frame when it swings
open. The final step is to screw the
hinges to the door and check that it
swings freely.

Getting Shot is Worth It
It's flu season andtime for flu shots.
If you haven't gotten one, get one.
For me, this is the week. If you
have children, or are responsible for
children, talking about and getting
the necessary vaccinations is overdue
but ongoing. I don't, but it's still a
cause for me. It's very personal. Four
years ago, for the want of a vaccine,
my daughter died of the swine flu,
referred to as H1N1.
Not that she didn't get her regular
flu shot. She did. What she missed,
by a couple of weeks, was getting
the specific vaccine that could have
protected her from the swine flu.
It was a pandemic that erupted in
April of 2009, but by the time it was
detected and a vaccine developed, it
was early October and availability
wasn't widespread, nor was alarm
about it. She was infected in late
October and it wiped out her lungs.
She died in early December. Victims
tended to be between 5 and 14 and
under 50 or were pregnant. She was
49. The rest of her and our family got
the vaccine after she was hospitalized
and even hospital personnel were

still getting vaccinated while she was
there. Too little, too late.
Early estimates were that 18,000 died
from it in the U.S. Later, the World
Health Organization, estimated that
as many as 284,500 died across the
globe and conjectured, that because
of reporting and diagnostic problems,
the toll might have been as high
as 579,000. A vaccine would have
dropped those numbers significantly
since, once available, it did curtail
the pandemic rather quickly.
Closer to the present time and
related to the seasonal flu, last
spring, in Nashville, Tenn., two
14-year-olds, neither of whom had
received a flu shot, but were in top
physical condition, were admitted
to the hospital with the flu. One
died a few weeks later and the other
has permanent lung damage. My
youngest son was the physician in
the pediatric intensive care unit at
that hospital.
He shared that with me because I
contracted influenza and pneumonia
about the same time. In spite of my
age, I survived, but only spent six
days in the hospital because the

vaccine I received, though not as
strong as it should have been, gave
me some protection. No, vaccines
don't always work, but usually do
provide some protection. And, pardon
the pun, but the regular old flu isn't
to be sneezed at.
There's a broader picture here,
too. That's the need of vaccinations
for children to protect them from
childhood diseases. I'll write more
about it later, but here's what's going
on in Pinellas County. First, the
concern: vaccination rates for two-
year-olds, is only 75.3 per cent and
for kindergartners is only 89.8 per
cent. The rest of the state is at about
93 per cent. The goal is to get those
per centages up to 90 per cent and 94
per cent respectively.
That's the mission of the Pinellas
Immunization Team for Community
Health (PITCH), a collaborative
effort of the Pinellas County and
Florida State Health Departments,
All Children's Hospital, pediatricians,
neighborhood family centers,
community health centers, hospitals,
schools, PTAs, YMCA, drugcompanies
and numerous volunteers, including
me. And, if you're wondering about
the drug companies, vaccines aren't
their profitable lines. In fact, because
of liabilities and downward pricing
pressures, there are only a handful
of vaccine manufacturers world-wide
which is a concern for some doctors I
have talked to.
The issue, however, is vaccination
and too few children are getting
vaccinated so epidemics of measles,
mumps, and whooping cough, to
name a few, are springing up. For
those of us who grew up in fear of
polio (yes, some oppose polio shots)
and lock-jaw (tetanus shot), and
acquired chicken pox, measles,
mumps, whooping cough, or scarlet
fever (President Eisenhower lost a
son to that disease) or rubella, this is
distressing. Childhood diseases don't
have to be. Some can kill and cripple
and, if not, make your child pretty
sick. Besides, just because you're
older doesn't mean you are immune.
Vaccinations protect all of us.

You & THE


iL A

By Robert J. Myers, Esq.
Why Buy-Sell
Agreements are
Important (Part II)
The entity-purchase agreement is a
contract within the company, not one
among the partners or their families.
In the case of XYZ, Ms. Smith and
Mr. Gonzales would enter into a
binding agreement with XYZ for the
purchase and sale of their respective
interests. Upon death, disability,
retirement or resignation, Ms. Smith
and Mr. Gonzales are obligated to
sell their stock to XYZ and XYZ is
obligated to buy that stock.
To fund this agreement, XYZ can
obtain life insurance contracts on
both Ms. Smith and Mr. Gonzales.
XYZ pays the premiums and is the
owner and beneficiary of the policies.


I,-- ILHL


When Mr. Gonzales dies, his stock
passes to his estate. At the same
time, the insurance company pays a
death benefit to XYZ as beneficiary
of the policy.
Pursuant to the entity-purchase
agreement that Ms. Smith and Mr.
Gonzales entered into with XYZ,
Mr. Gonzales' estate will transfer
his entire interest in XYZ back to
XYZ in return for the cash payout on
Mr. Gonzales insurance policy. The
entity-purchase agreement allows
the value of the stock for estate tax
purposes to be determined and gives
the Gonzales family the liquidity
they need.
Entity-purchase agreements do
have some disadvantages. There
will often be a build up of the value
in the life insurance policy which
may, along with the policy death
benefits, be subject to the claims of
corporate creditors and susceptible
to alternative minimum tax.
In a cross-purchase agreement
arrangement, XYZ is not a party
to the agreement. Instead, Ms.
Smith obtains a life insurance

Smith pays the premiums and is
both owner and beneficiary of the
policy. Mr. Gonzales does likewise.
Under the terms of the cross-
purchase agreement, each agrees to
buy the other's stock in the event of
death using the proceeds of the life
insurance policy.
When Mr. Gonzales dies, the
insurance company pays the death
benefits to Ms. Smith that she uses
to buy back Mr. Gonzales' interest
in XYZ from Mr. Gonzales' estate.
Again, the Gonzales family gets
the liquidity they need to settle his
estate.
A cross-purchase agreement
carries with it several advantages.
First, it insulates cash values and
death benefits from the imposition
of corporate alternative minimum
tax and corporate creditors. Second,
it provides a step-up in cost basis
for the surviving shareholder and
the decedent. These are significant
benefits when the surviving
shareholder intends to sell the
business following the death of the
other partner.
One clear disadvantage of cross-
urchase agreements occurs if the
partners who are entering into the
agreement are of different ages
cause the younger partner will pay
lore to insure the older partner.

Pillucere, former sister-in-law is also
a beloved family member. She was
an award winning public speaker
and took first place in a city public
speaking competition portraying
the lead role in Fannie Hurst's play
"Humeresque". While serving as a
USO hostess during WWII, she met
and later married Walter T. Bond,
US Navy Quartermaster in 1944. In
1956 she was selected as a finalist in
the Mrs. US Navy Pageant in San
Diego, CA. Primrose was a licensed

several hair styling competitions.
She later was employed as a

retired after 10 years of service. She
later worked as a consultant to the
State of Florida Cosmetology Testing
Division for three years. Throughout
her life she enjoyed cooking and
hosting family gatherings for which
she once won "Cook's Night Out"

she called it "my gift to those I love"
(cooking) was enjoyed by friends and
family for many years. Primrose

organ are among the instruments
with which she excelled. Also a

story, "Smiley the Helicopter" in
1954. She also composed prayers for
special family occasions. Primrose's
generosity and kindness were well
known. A needle-work sampler she

of the Road." She lived that dream.

leaving behind her
beloved partner of
ten years, Kathy
Kenney; and many
wonderful friends. There will be a
Celebration of her Life at 6 p.m. on
Sept. 29th at the Gulfport Pier.
I am standing upon the seashore. A
ship at my side spreads her white
sails to the morning breeze and starts
for the blue ocean. She is an object of
beauty and strength, and I stand and
watch her until at length she hangs
like a speck of white cloud just where
the sea and sky come down to mingle
with each other. Then someone at my
side says, "There! She's gone." Gone
St I, :' Gone from my sight-that is
all. She is just as large in mast and
hull and spar as she was when she
left my side, and just as able to bear
her load of living freight to the place
of destination. Her diminished size
is in me, not in her; and just as the
moment when someone at my side
says, "There! She's Gone," there are


other eyes watching her coming, and
other voices ready to take up the glad
shout, "There she comes!".

In Tribute to
PETER DUFFY
By Collyn Uamas
Peter Duffy saved my life. He also
babysat or should I say watched


over me from age 15 to 16 along with
Dallas and Rico. I was allowed to go
to the Blueberry Patch (the original
one) on 31st St. S. as long as Peter,
Dallas and Rico were there to keep
an eye on me and I was forbidden
to go back to Hoboville although I
often tried to sneak there and Peter
would always catch me and give
me a tongue lashing like no other!
When I was 16 a friend named John
Shipp took me and two others out to
Egmont Key in a small motor boat
to take photographs for a project he
was working on and we ended up
beached. With a storm raging we
found the little Coast Guard station.
With 8-foot swells no one could come
get us. No one but the do-or-die guy
named Peter Duffy. He convinced
the captain of the Miss Pass-a-Grille
to come save us and off they went.
Now the dock was there as was the
boat who finally made it along with a
Cheshire cat grin of the then 38 year
old Peter Duffy. Everyone made it
into the moving up and down boat in
8-foot swells. Peter screamed at me
(the last one on the dock, chicken that
I am) "Jump, damn it, Collyn, jump"
and so I did. However, I didn't make
it to the boat and I fell between the
dock and the boat. It was only Peter's
quick hand that grabbed my hair
and pulled me aboard. There is no


doubt he saved my life and we were
forever friends. As the years rolled by
I would tell that story to anyone who
would listen. When Peter was next to
me he would begrudgingly say "oh,
it was nothing", but with a twinkle
in his eye and a shy grin that said
he loved it. So much so that as they
years went by recently if I didn't
bring it up he would say "Oh, Collyn
you're not going to say how I saved
your life again, are you? and I'd look
at him and say "you betcha". Peter
very rarely hugged much less shook
hands with anyone or say "I love
you" he wasn't that kind of guy. But
when it came to Peter anyone knows
I'd always get a hug and an "I love
you" before we parted ways. Except
this time. I love you, Peter Duffy.
There will be a tibute to Peter Duffy
on Saturday, Sept. 28, 2013. from
1-4 p.m. at Stinger Bar, 2222 49th
Street S. in Gulfport. You are
welcomed to bring a covered dish.

Life Celebration
PETER DUFFY
Everyone come and join them in
celebrating Peter's amazing life.
Bring your stories about Peter to
share. The celebration begins at
7 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 1st at the
Blueberry Patch, 4923 20th Ave. S.,
Gulfport.

"^ "" :,, ***
















By Cathy Salustri
Carrie Caignet discussed the changes in Tampa Bay since the Spanish arrived.
Boat captains, history buffs, and locals interested in the way development has
reshaped Boca Ciega and Tampa Bay came to the Gulfport History Museum to
hear maritime historian and Gulfportian Carrie Caignet speak Friday night.
Using Google Earth and charts from her collection, Caignet showed how Tampa

know today. Caignet told attendees Tampa Bay had started to heal.
Next month, historian, archivist and Boca Ciega High graduate Jim Schnur

history. The Gulfport Historical Society invites everyone to attend this free

Clam Bayou: Nature's
Storm Sewer
Nature's storm sewer. Doesn't
that have a nice ring to it? No?
Well, welcome to Clam Bayou,
the second of what I call Gulfport's Big
Three of problems. The sewers are the
first and the most solvable, provided
we want to spend some money, which
we clearly don't. But the sanitary
sewers (there's irony for you) aren't
our only threat to our quality of life
in everyone's favorite funky seaside
town. On the edge of town, forgotten
by most of you, lies another threat:
Clam Bayou. Think of it as nature's
stormwater treatment plant, because
all the stuff that's on our roads and
lawns flows into Clam Bayou with every
heavy rain. Once there, the mangroves
and grass filter any impurities from
the water as best they can before the
water flows into Boca Ciega Bay. So,
sort of like a sewer treatment plant,
except for stormwater. Oh, and yes,
according to the Florida Department
of Environmental Protection (FDEP),
it has too much fecal coliform in it and
dissolved oxygen issues. So while it
may have some basis in fact, "Clam
Bayou: Nature's Stormwater Treatment
Plant" isn't what I would want floating
(no pun intended) around out there if I
were trying to brand the city.
That's a salient point because at city
council's most recent workshop they
debated branding Gulfport. At the next
workshop, council will debate what to
do if anything about Clam Bayou.
liT,. should we do anything about
Clam Bayou? After all, didn't the state
just restore the bayou at a cost of
millions? Well, sort of. It did something
and parts of Clam Bayou certainly
look better, yes, but we have no idea
if we should or not, because after all
that money, I still can't find a water
quality test that shows what disgusting
things were or were not in the water
before the state redesigned how water
meandered through Clam Bayou.
That means that no matter what
we test for now and I don't believe
anyone's testing for anything, despite
assurances from two state agencies
that they have reports on the Bayou -
we have no idea whether Clam Bayou


is better or worse. A few years ago, the
Tampa Bay Estuary Program tested
certain parts of the bottom and found
the pesticides DDT and chlordane as
well as other chemicals many related
to automobiles in the sediment.
Every governing body proceeding to
absolutely nothing about this. What's
more, despite repeated requests over
the past decade, I've yet to see a single
water quality test for Clam Bayou,
which I find odd, considering the
Southwest Florida Water Management
District deemed it worthy of a few
million dollars to redesign the bayou.
FDEP told me Tuesday it prepared a
report and promised to send it to me,
but I've yet to see it.
Of course, we know the muck that's
the technical term and it doesn't have
to be a pejorative; in the 'Glades,
muck's a good thing contains toxins,
yet I adamantly oppose to dredging
the bottom or posting signs warning
anglers about the bayou's toxicity.
.li. ? Three reasons.
One, we have made no effort to stop
the petrochemical runoff from flowing
into the Bayou, so dredging out
contaminants before we stop the flow
makes no sense. It's like having a sewer
spewing human waste all over ('lI. i i'.
Park but deciding to cut the grass so it
doesn't look so icky. Two, we have to be
careful when we talk about dredging,
because charts as far back as the 16th
century reflect a depth of less than a
foot at the mouth of Clam Bayou. Like
it or not, Clam Bayou's functioning as
it should a treatment system for all
the toxins we have on our roadways,
golf courses, and yards. If we make
Clam Bayou deeper, the water won't
stay in Clam Bayou long enough to get
treated properly, and then we have a
larger problem: a toxic Boca Ciega Bay.
Yes, Clam Bayou may have been deeper
when boats traversed it, prop dredging
out the sand. But that was also when
Boca Ciega Bay lost all its sea grass
and the state sued Pinellas County to
stop developing on the shallow body of
water. When we stopped prop dredging
Clam Bayou, Boca Ciega Bay started
to recover. What happens to Boca
Ciega Bay if we speed up the water
flow through the only remaining tidal
estuary on the Bay?
Actually, we don't know. And that's


my third and largest reason for
hesitating to jump in with any fixes: our
ignorance. We don't know that dredging
is the best solution, and we don't know
that it isn't. I oppose dredging and I
just as stridently oppose doing nothing.
I like the idea that if we get grant
money from BP, we'll use it to stop the
flow of toxins into Clam Bayou, but I
don't like the idea of only doing it if we
get a grant. Our natural environments
should be a priority all the time, not
just at our fiscal convenience.
So where does that leave me? Well,
on the side of logic. So far, we've heard
from me. We've heard from people who
think we need to dredge and post signs
warning of the Bayou's toxicity. We've
heard sort of from a state agency
who remapped the bayou and then,
much like a televangelist, pronounced
it healed but failed to provide any test
results showing how. Who haven't we
heard from?
Science. We haven't heard from science.
You know, an impartial observation
of facts that lead to a conclusion as
to what we should do to about Clam
Bayou's issues. I have strong feelings
about how to fix things, but somewhere
along the way I neglected to get my
hydrology degree, as did everyone else
who has expressed vehement opinions
on the subject.
But since our city council will discuss
this very issue next week... what if they
decided that it was time to consider not
opinions but fact and directed city staff
to find a hydrologist who didn't work for
the state or any other interested party?
What if they asked for a hydrologist to
evaluate the bayou for water quality
and make suggestions as to what
should happen?
Ah, hello, logic. Even the people who
think I have some hidden agenda
(spoiler alert: I don't. The environment
is my agenda, first, last, and always)
can't disagree with a scientist testing
the water and testing the fish for toxins.
Of course, the Clam Bayou issue, over
the past decade, has devolved into some
sort of buffet of craziness. And you
cannot bring a side of logic to a crazy
buffet and expect people to eat it.
Except, of course, I'd like to think that
our council has the good sense to dig
in.

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.
