Dan andJuju Stevens dressedfor the second annual Gulfport
Thanksgiving on the Beach (also called the Gecko Gobble or
the Gulfport Social Thanksgiving). Organizers estimated
that almost 100 people attended the event, organized by -
among others Jon Ziegler and Leigh Hanson.
Everyone brought a dish to share and event organizers
provided plates, flatware, and napkins. Organizers used
Facebook to carry out the day's event, which included plenty
of food, bocce ball and corn hole.
"For so many of us without the big family around any
more," Lou Miliano posted on the event's Facebook wall.
"This was terrific. What a great idea to be with old friends
and make so many new ones."


Sewer Emergency
in PYCC
Storm sewers in one of the city's
more exclusive neighborhoods
recently started to fail.
Four 48" corrugated metal
sewer pipes run from Gulfport
Boulevard to and through the
Pasadena Place neighborhood
in the Pasadena Yacht and
Country Club. These pipes, less
than 20 years old, have started
corroding, and recent rainfalls
have caused the road to cave in
over the rotting sewer lines.
"The heavy rains of September
and October caused a portion of
the asphalt roadway to collapse
over two of the pipes," Mr.
Sopak, the city's public works
director, said in a memo to
council.
See Sewers, page 39

Marina Begins
Improvements
Long-awaited marina improve-
ments took a first step Tuesday
night at Gulfport City Council.
City Council voted to spend just
over $48,000 for construction
services, design, and project
administration, of the new live
aboard facility and a renovation
to the existing ship store.
City council voted to pay
Renker, Eich,Parks, Architects
to design the new building. The
two-story building will not have
any living space on the first floor
to satisfy code requirements.
The second floor will include a
harbormaster's office, laundry
facilities, showers for men and
women, a day room, a computer
room, janitorial facilities, and
miscellaneous mechanical
rooms. The building will have
an elevator.
Estimates place the total
construction costs at $654,000.

As you know, financial support is
extremely important to provide these
greatly needed services. We therefore
have scheduled our first annual
fundraiser, "Caring and Sharing

50/50 raffles, door busters, music,
cocktails and hors'duerves/tapas and
is sponsored by ('1I.nlIy's, Bo-Tiki
and MaddyG Realty.
The Foundation would like to ask for
added support from our friends in the
community who can donate auction
items. It is a win/win situation when
we benefit from your donation and
you receive the good will which comes
as a result of your generosity.
The Michael J. Yakes Foundation's
ability to operate is due, in large part,
to the generous support of individual
donors who believe in our mission
as well as gifts from businesses and
corporations.

"Before You Give Up, Do This..."


Dear friend,
Four out of five people that show up in my office
have taken "every" test, wound up with huge medical
bills, and are still no better off. Often, they've been
subjected to medications that have only served to
temporarily mask symptoms. That's not what most
people are looking for.
Often, these people get frustrated and wind up in my
office. I'm used to it... it's fine with me.
Many, many years ago, I was an assistant in a
doctor's office. I watched over and over, patients
suffering with carpal tunnel, headaches, asthma,
allergies, neck and shoulder problems or back pain
(you name it) come in for help.
I was impressed with the "miracles" I witnessed in
that office. Oh, let me mention that this doctor is a
Chiropractor. This experience is what led me to go to
Chiropractic school myself
Now, people from the bay area come to see me with
their carpal tunnel syndrome problems. They also
come to me with...
* Headaches
* Migraines
* Allergies


* Neck Pain
* Shoulder/Arm Pain
* Whiplash from Car Accidents
* Low Back Pain
* Numbness in Limbs
* Athletic Injuries
Just to name a few...
These neighbors of yours tell their stories:
"I feel great! ...pain is gone and I can move again. The
staff is incredibly compassionate and included me in
every step of my care. I'm more comfortable and
energetic and now I know how to stay that way! I
would definitely recommend this office specifically
Dr. Kidgell and her mom (Dellor her assistant).'
- (Lorraine P.)
"FINALLY I am back in shape... Thank you sooo
much for all your great work you have done"
-(Ron C.)
"I found instant relief I haven't had a migraine in
months" (Donna T.)
Special Offer- Look, I know you're smart. You want
to get to the cause of your problem, and not just cover
it up with drugs. So, when you call to schedule a new
patient exam (by Dec 16, 2013) you'll receive that


entire exam for just $37 and an unwrapped toy (for
our Toy Drive). That's a consultation, x-rays, a report
of your findings.... the whole ball of wax, and
there's no hidden exam fees. You will find us very
thorough. But, call right away because on Monday,
Dec 16, 2013 at exactly 6p.m., this offer will expire.
My assistant is Dellor and she is a really great person
(I should know, she's my Mom). Our office is both
friendly and warm and we try our best to make you
feel at home. We have a wonderful service, at an
exceptional fee. Our office is located at 1228 66th
Street North (next to Chase bank). Our phone
number is 727-384-6168 Call Dellor, for an appoint-
ment. Stop suffering... .we can help! Thank you.
Kristin M. Kidgell, D.C.

man is given the community service

a comedy about two men, who do not

becomes a gripping and moving drama
as they get to know each other, come
to care about each other, and open
old wounds they've been hiding and
nursing for years. This play has won
numerous best play and best actor

Life's Money Rules,
Number 6: Manage
Your Credit
J 11 admit it. Rule six in my
book, "7 Money Rules for Life:
How to Take Control of Your
Financial Future" is not my favorite
of the seven rules. Honestly, I would
much rather change "Manage Your
Credit" to "Death to Credit, Live on
Cash" andbe done with it. But unless
we can figure out how to turn back
the clock a half century or so, that
would be unwise -- even foolish.
That leaves us with two choices.
One, we can ignore the matter of
consumer credit and just hope for
the best (not a very good option). Or
two, we can take full responsibility
for maintaining an excellent credit
rating for the purpose of saving
money and improving our financial
intelligence and our effectiveness as
money managers. We must opt for


hteap$kate
the latter because credit rating plays
a very important role in financial
health.
Rule six in its entirety reads,
"Manage your credit rating to achieve
a high level of creditworthiness."
Read this rule again, paying close
attention to the words "credit
rating" and "creditworthiness." This
rule does not mean going into debt,
creating debt or taking on huge sums
of available credit.
Credit on its face is not bad. In
fact, having a good credit rating,
which is measured by your credit
scores, simply means that based
on your past behavior, companies
and individuals that you deal with
can expect the same from you in the
future.
As much financial trouble as I
managed to get into because I
abused credit cards and ran up
insane amounts of toxic debt, I don't
blame credit. I take responsibility
for the foolish decisions I made

We Can?" Do Ift Wthtout YOU!


and the horrific ways that I abused
consumer credit. That my credit led
to toxic debt was of my own doing.
There is a trending belief in some
circles that to have good credit you
have to be in debt, or that a credit
report is just a "debt report" because
it measures your debt. That is not
true. You do not have to be in debt
to be found highly creditworthy.
These days, a poor credit rating
can be costly, and that's the reason
you need to assume the role as your
own personal credit manager. To do
this, you need to monitor your credit
report, credit score and credit card
account on a regular basis.
You may assume, given my financial
history and the way that credit-card
debt nearly ruined my life, that I
wouldn't carry a credit card even if
my life depended on it, and that I
recommend you get out the scissors
to perform a little plastic surgery.
If that's what you're thinking, I'm
about to disappoint.
The truth is that a credit card -- the
right credit card -- used smartly by
someone with a modicum of financial
intelligence can be a useful financial
tool that can also contribute to a
high FICO score, thus achieving
that high level of credit worthiness
you need.

If you're more emotional than
usual, blame it on the moon, Jupiter
and Saturn angling in touchy-feely
feminine water signs. The good
news is that whether the feelings
are amorous or tearful, angry or
passionate, when shared honestly
and respectfully, they are sure to
bring us together. You may even
feel healed by the experience. Mars
in Libra is rooting for maximum
harmony for those brave enough to
be vulnerable.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21).
Children tattle; adults act. Instead of
calling someone out for wrongdoing,
you'll play a game of sorts. You'll
watch and wait for your chance to
manipulate the situation to your
advantage. The opportunity won't
come this week, but sit tight, gather
information and try to figure out your
opponent's next move.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19).
Take your time. Your tendency this
week may be to do things in one
leap that are best done step by step.
Wanting too much is a danger. How
detached can you become? Try to get
to the place where you think: If it
happens, great; if not, that's fine, too.
Maybe something better is in store.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18).
Words like "woman," "man" and
"professional" conjure different
imagery and ideals for different
people. You are allowed to define
these words by your own standards,
too. So don't accept a conventional
idea of who you should be. That
would be too limiting for someone as
creative as you.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Some
of your relationships have been
stellar, and others have left much to
be desired. Can you tell, in retrospect,
why the good ones were so good and
what was wrong with the bad ones?
This kind of review at this particular
cosmic moment will prevent you from
making the same mistakes in the
future.
ARIES (March 21-April 19).
Traveling long distances, you
sometimes must go through towns
and places that you don't want to


visit in order to get to your desired
destination. You'll find yourself in a
few undesirable places and positions
this week, but just remember that
you are passing through. Focus
on where you're headed, and keep
moving forward.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20).
Bringing people up is a talent. Those
who raise your spirits and capabilities
may do so with no skill other than
the ability to relate. This week you
will see the awesome power in this
humble gift, and you'll learn all you
can. Many people you know haven't
been able to set aside their interests
long enough to focus on others.
GEMINI (iI.in 21-June 21). Of all of
the signs in the zodiac, you are best
at predicting trends. Put that skill to
use. Get quiet in your mind and focus
on what is likely to happen next.
If you can't see into the far future,
try seeing into the near future. A
Japanese proverb says, "He who can
see three days ahead will be rich for
three thousand years."
CANCER (June 22-July 22). This
week you'll increase your flexibility
of mind. The way you see the world
seems like a natural extension of
your genetics and experience, but at
some point it is also a choice. As an
exercise, try on different perspectives
as a film director might. You don't
have to believe in those perspectives,
but really see them.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). If you find
that your efforts don't meet with
the support and encouragement you
seek, take heart: Jealousy, fear and
ignorance cause people to judge those
who are trying to better themselves.
You don't have to listen to the trolls,
though. You can march on, refusing
to give up no matter who says what.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Knowing
who you are has something to do
with revisiting who you were. You
used to spend time with a different
set of people. You had different
interests. What happened between
then and now to change your mind?
By remembering, you'll deepen your
understanding and appreciation for
who you've become.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You are


trying to avoid awkwardness this
week, and it's definitely possible.
Pay attention to your surroundings
before you make a move. This simple
step (that so many people forget to
take because they are too obsessed
with getting what they want) will
allow you to come off as cool, suave
and together.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). When
you're playing games of power, who
is right and who is wrong are often
less important than who wins and
who loses. This is why you may not
want to play power games. There are
things dearer to you than coming out
on top. Ask yourself this before you
get involved in a game: What kind of
game is it?
This Week's Birthdays: You've
dedicated your life and time to other
people, and this is finally your year to
break out and do things for you -- just
you. January brings a new source of
fun and the start of an identity shift.
February introduces friends and
partners with whom you'll work and
play well. Your biggest moneymaking
opportunities are in April and July.
Don't commit to deals without
getting a second and third opinion on
the matter. Relationships thrive as a
shared interest brings you closer in
May.

Excerpts heard at the December 3, 2013

Gulfport City Council Meeting

Public Comment


& Council Quotes

"Problems with signs in the elections have probably gone on since
Julius Caesar's time."- Gerry O'Regan
"How are we going to pick the color?" Vice Mayor Dan Liedtke,
about the new marina building
"You guys can vote on it."- Harbormaster Denis Frain
"I'm here for the Gulfport Neighbors, rounding up help... come this
Saturday we will be painting and if anybody would like to assist, we
certainly welcome the help. It's Saturday, 8 a.m., at the 2800 block
of 49th Street and thanks also to all the people who helped thus
far."- Margarete Tober, Gulfport Neighbors
"If you say at this point we don't need it, we don't want it, thank
you very much."- Lawrence Burke, who presented the city with a plan
to build a homeless shelter behind the 49th Street Neighborhood Center.
As part of Mr. Burke's plan, churches would run the shelter and vet those
seeking shelter. The shelter would have cameras in all public areas and
have private bathrooms and showers. Mr. Lawrence Burke offered free
drawings for the city, "all stamped and all approved" for free.

About Creating a Clam Bayou Management Plan...
"The source of the concern had to do with PAHis, which the mayor
can always tell me what it is so I don't have to remember. We just
agreed to another paving project and that's one of the sources."
Ward Four Councilwoman Jennifer Salmon
"If we're going to move ahead... we might want to consider hiring
someone who's an expert. I don't want us to... spin our wheels [when
we might not be doing the right thing]."- Mayor Sam Henderson
"I didn't anticipate that that would be a scientist. I thought a
management plan was, 'first, here's our problem, here's where we
want to go...'... it's the steps to take to address the crud. And maybe
the plan does grow over the time. But just to get the initial steps
down... takes what we want and... outlines our goals."- Ward Two
Councilwoman Christine Brown
"Ultimately, it's a scientific program. We don't need an English
major here so much as we need someone who understands water
habitats and how to do it. My fear is that we'll get caught up in
creating something written and beautiful and... nothing ever
happens." -Ward Three Councilwoman Jennifer Salmon

About Increasing Council Salaries...
"The last increase was in 2000, prior to that it was '89."
Mayor Sam Henderson
"I think the mayor should receive $15,000 a year and city council,
$12,000." -Ward Four representative Michael Fridovich
"I knew my pay cut proposal wasn't going to fly."- Vice Mayor and
Ward One representative Dan Liedtke, who said he wouldn't support a
pay increase higher than what the city gave its employees. Councilwoman
Salmon pointed out that city staff received raises more frequently than
council.

S passed away Nov.
C26, 2013. Born in
Easthampton, MA,
m he moved to Florida
in 1992. A skilled
craftsman, he owned his own
business, Eddie and the Carpenters.
Much of his work can be seen at the
Pasadena Yacht Club neighborhood
and he was a lead carpenter at Hulk
Hogan's Bellaire home. Eddie was
an avid NASCAR fan and loved all
motor racing sports. He cherished
his family, and time spent with his
grandchildren. In November of 2012,
Eddie's family home in Gulfport
was lost to an electrical fire. With
Nathan's and his brother-in-law
Jim's help, he spent the last year
rebuilding the house. Through all
of this, as throughout his life, Eddie
was always high-spirited. He lent a
laugh and brought joy to those around
him. Even when times were tough, he
was the first one in the room to share
a good joke. Eddie was loved by his
family, and is survived by his wife
Michelle; children Jennifer, Nathan,
Beth and Gabriel; grandchildren
Elijah and Estaria Burgess and
Connor and Aubrey Brumer; parents

Sewers, from front page

City council voted to approve $37,250 to make the emergency repairs.
Workers must dig up the road and replace two of the four pipes, then replace
the road and repave. City council budgeted $75,000 for sewer repairs for the
current fiscal year, which started October 1. After these emergency repairs,
the Gulfport will have $37,750 left in this year's budget for storm sewer
repairs. Mr. Sopak told the Gabber he intended to use this year's budgeted
money for water treatment improvements and repairs as needed.
Repairs, Mr. Sopak says, should not wait.
"This work needs to be performed immediately," Mr. Sopak says, "as any
rainfall could cause more damage."
"They're corrugated metal? Is that normal?" Ward Two Councilwoman
Christine Brown asked.
"If you're on a farm, maybe," Mr. Sopak said.
Gulfport's Public Works department used a special camera to view the pipes
and suggested the city budget replace them. The city received a $455,000
estimate to replace all the sewer lines in the subdivision and planned to
replace the pipes in the 2016 budget year.
Storm sewer pipes can be made of metal, "but if you want them to last a long
time, they would be made of concrete or plastic or some type of composite,"
Mr. Sopak said. The city will replace them with heavy duty (HD) plastic
pipes. The city did not install the storm sewer lines; the contractor who built
the subdivision US Steel handled the installation.
The initial estimate for a total replacement of all four pipes ($455,000)
should decrease by the cost of this repair. When the city begins replacing the
storm sewers in this neighborhood, it will seek co-funding from the Southwest
Florida Water Management District.
These four pipes are the only four that the city has responsibility for
maintaining in the whole of the Pasadena Yacht and Country Club.
"We don't own it," he told council, "but we maintain it."


The One Million Dollar Question:
How to Buy New Sewers
Don Sopak warned council that the city's sewers needed replacing, and
Tuesday night the city heard about one of two possible programs that would
help Gulfport finance what city staff calls much-needed repairs. Mr. Sopak,
the city's public works director, presented a plan for the city in the summer
of 2011. That plan, a state revolving fund, allowed the city to borrow up
to $1-million and repay the loan over five years at 2.35%. Council initially
agreed to borrow the money but reversed their decision in October 2011.
Tuesday night, ConEdison Solutions presented one solution. This
program allows the city to borrow the money over up to 20 years. ConEd
representatives told Gulfport the city would save money annually with the
sewer improvements but if it did not, ConEd would pay the difference. For
example, if ConEd projects the city would save $200,000 a year from the
improvements but only saved $100,000, ConEd would have to write the city
a check for $100,000.
This is one of two programs the city is considering to fund sanitary sewer
repairs.
"What we're talking about today is one mechanism to fund those
improvements," City Manager Jim O'Reilly explained to council, but added
the city had yet to determine all the improvements needed.
"This is just one option we'd like you to hear about," he said.
At the December 17 meeting the city will hear about the state revolving
loan program once again.

City of Gulfport: Dispensing Free Samples

Q; At the tree lighting two girls walked through the crowd handing out
Red Bull (they were dressed in Red Bull costumes). Is this allowed on city
property? From an attendee at the Monday night tree lighting in Clymer
Park.
A: According to Gulfport City Manager Jim O'Reilly, yes, because the
event takes place on public property and open to everyone.
"Unless their presence caused a disruption or there were issues with their
product or conduct, there is nothing precluding individuals from handing
out such free samples at public events. While enjoying the tree lighting, I
personally was unaware of their presence, but I would have been happy to
intervene if I had been advised of a problem or issue."

Election Season Opens in Gulfport & St. Pete Beach


by Cathy salustnri
Gulfport
Paul Ray has qualified as a candidate for the Gulfport
Ward Three seat. At press time no other candidates have
qualified for either seat, although Yolanda Roman (Ward
Three) opened a bank account and picked up a packet and
incumbent and current vice mayor Dan Liedtke (Ward One)
also opened a bank account.
This means that if the city held elections today, both Ray
and Liedtke would take their seats unopposed. Once Ms.
Roman submits her paperwork and the county Supervisor
of Elections verifies her petition cards, she will qualify as a
candidate against Mr. Ray in Ward Three.
Current councilwoman Jennifer Salmon chose not to run
again after two terms representing Ward Three. Ms. Salmon
first took the office as an unopposed candidate; she kept her
seat against long-time resident Jim Perry during the last
election. Council terms last two years.
Candidates have until noon Monday to qualify for either the
Ward One or the Ward Three seat. Please "like" the Gabber
Newspaper on Facebook and visit our web site, theGabber.
corn, for updates between now and Monday noon.

St. Pete Beach
This year three seats come up for election on St. Pete Beach:
District One, District Three, and the Mayor's seat. Lorraine
Huhn, Marvin Shavlan, and Mayor Steve McFarland occupy
those seats, respectively.
While the official qualification period doesn't start until
noon on Monday, December 9, several residents have paid
for candidate guidebooks. Below we list who purchased a
book; St. Pete Beach City Clerk Rebecca Haynes cautions
that although a person paid for a book, that does not mean
they intend to run. Anyone can buy a book and give it to
anyone else.
The list below shows who, at press time Wednesday, paid
for a book and the district in which they live (Except for
Lorraine Huhn and McFarlin, who have both declared their


intended seat). Because the mayor's seat is up tor election,
some of the people who live in District Three may inten
to run for mayor. If a potential candidate lives in neither
District One or Three, readers may extrapolate that they (or
the person for whom they purchased the book) intend to run
for mayor.

Jim Anderson, District 3 *Lorraine Huhn**, District
1 Jim Kilpatrick, District 1 Gary Littrell, District 3

Parent***, District 3 Tiffany Secka, District 3 **Marvin
Shavlan, District 3
*Incumbent
**Indicates the person has opened account, statement o
candidacy
***Mr. Parent told the clerk he pulled the book "for
educational purposes"

From the city's web site:
A candidate for position of City Commissioner must be a
full-time resident of the district from which he or she seeks
office or, if for the position of Mayor-Commissioner, a full-
time resident of the City of St. Pete Beach.
A candidate may announce his or her candidacy at any
time; however, before accepting any contributions, making
any expenditures, or obtaining any petition signatures, the
candidate must file an Appointment of Campaign Treasurer
and Designation of Depository Form (Form DS-DE 9) with
the City Clerk.
Candidate Guidebooks are available at the Office of the City
Clerk, Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.; the
cost is $10.00. Please contact Rebecca Haynes at 363-9220 to
schedule an appointment to obtain a guidebook and discuss
filing procedures.

QUALIFICATION PERIOD
Begins: 12:00 p.m. (noon) Monday, December 9, 2013.
Ends: 12:00 p.m. (noon) Friday, December 13.

Gya met ah' Oh my mind
a b o By Bill Northrop BNorthrop@theGabber.com


Too Big To Manage
t's not a new thought that the
U. S. government might be too
big to function properly. Even
President Obama's former advisor
and go-to-man, David Axelrod
commented that the government
was too vast to expect the president
to know what's going on. That's not
quite the same as saying it can't
function. However, a recent op-ed in
the Washington Post blends the two
by declaring that the government
lacks management skills. That's
pretty scary considering how much
the government manages.
The point is made by William M.
Daley, Commerce Secretary (1997-
2000) under Bill Clinton and White
House Chief of Staff for Barack
Obama, 2011-12 andLinda J. Milmes,
professor of public policy at Harvard
University and chief financial officer,
Department of Commerce, 1999-
2001. They aren't talking about
themselves, but about the line


managers throughout the federal
bureaucracy and they attribute it to
"the system". That's my phrase, not
theirs.
Referring to the $400-600 million
spent on the Affordable Care Act
(ObamaCare, DemoCare) web site
noting that it doesn't work, not
because the technology doesn't work,
but because the entire system was
not properly managed. As they put it,
government lacks basic management
skills. And, that's because key
positions managing financial,
technical, procurement affairs are
not considered "glamorous". Their
word not mine.
Managers are measured in
government by the ability to expand
the department, number of employes
and the size of the budget. No
rewards are offered for doing more
for less money or with fewer people.
Not using up a budget is a no-no since
that means next year's budget might
be cut. Little recognition by the press

or politicians (and apparently not
by administrative management) for
success. It's more of a blame game.
This system problem has led to
other problem projects: the Coast
Guard upgrade in its fleet that went
from a $17 billion cost to $29 billion;
the Homeland Security virtual
fence project that had to be halted;
a Department of Veterans Affair -
Defense Department integration of
data systems that has had numerous
delays and dysfunction; and an IRS
attempt to improve its electronic
filing and refund system that hasn't
met expectations.
Their solutions include incentives
for management skills, flexibility
in management of resources, an
incentive for saving money; working
with state and local governments
who disperse 25 per cent of the
federal money, better budgeting
performance and process by
Congress; and consolidating over-
lapping departments and vigorously
evaluating and pruning poorly
functioning or no longer relevant
programs.
No argument here. But there might
be some from politicians in both
parties, special interests represented
by both parties, and the bureaucrats
themselves. Newton's Law about
a body in motion tends to stay in
motion or, in this case, non-motion,
unless an external force is applied
to it. The question is how big a force
and for how long can it be mustered
to dislodge from its inertia an
institution of millions of employes
with a budget of trillions of dollars?
In the meantime, government moves
on and on, taking on larger projects
and pretending they can manage
them. Even privatization requires
managing the out-sourcing and that
starts with managing the procuring
of the out-source and continuing
through either the completion of
a given project, or the perpetual
monitoring of the out-source. In the
end, whether in personal affairs,
private business, or public business
one has to know his limits and
abilities.
That may or may not mean a much
smaller federal government, but it
certainly calls for a review of what
government is capable of handling
and what it's not. Right now, it's not
a pretty picture.

Attorney Keith Sanders, Handles
Foreclosure Defense and Bankruptcies
with Experience and Sensitivity


ou could say my
V 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."

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.
"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.

For years, former Gulfport mayor, Mike Yakes, tried to light the Christmas
tree in ('I in,., Park, and every year he found himself unable to do so without
help from some of the youngest Gulfportians. Monday night Gulfport's new
mayor, Sam Henderson, tried to light the tree only to discover that he, too,
lacked the power to launch Gulfport into the Christmas season without help
from Gulfport's kids.
Fortunately for Mayor Henderson, there was no shortage of children on hand
at the tree lighting and when he asked for volunteers he found no shortage of
kids to help flip the switch on the lights.
Instead of buying a fresh tree or using an artificial one, Gulfport decorates a
live cedar tree in ( i1, .' Park. After the annual lighting of the tree, Gulfport's
Tot Time performs. Santa usually interrupts their song with a splashy arrival
in a fire truck. This year was no exception, and Santa arrived just as the kids
finished their songs.

Small Town Christmas Party, Carols, and
Nighttime Tour of Lights

Looking for an old-timey Christmas party? Come join the Gulfport Historical
Society on Friday, December 13 to get into the true spirit of this Christmas
season. The Society will open its doors for a down-home Christmas party.
Take your pick of two celebrations: Christmas carols on the Gulfport trolley or
tree-trimming at the museum. The Gulfport Trolley will take a nighttime tour
of the city's holiday decorations while riders sing holiday carols led by singer
Laura Henderson. Back at the Gulfport History Museum (5301 28th Street
South), merry-makers can help trim the Society's new Christmas tree while
singing along with a one-man holiday band. Tree-trimmers will make wishes,
write them on paper chain links, and build an old-fashioned Christmas chain.
For a voluntary donation, you can honor a loved one with luminaries along
the museum walkway.
The trolley loads up at 6:30 p.m. and at 7 p.m. the tree-trimming begins. The
trolley can only hold 24 people, so line up early to secure your spot.
If you're so inclined, please bring a dessert to share. The Society will have
coffee, hot chocolate, and mulling spices. As always, these family-friendly
events are free and open to the public, although the Society does accept
donations and will collect non-perishable food for the Gulfport Multipurpose
Senior Center Food Pantry. BYOB welcome. Please call Miki at 32-5705 or
e-mail Cathy at DreamsFloat@me.com for more information. We look forward
to seeing you all there!

You & THE



By Robert J. Myers, Esq.
What You Need to
Know About Florida's
new Power of
Attorney Act (Part II)
The most fundamental change in
Florida's new Power of Attorney
(POA) Act is the classification and
requirements of certain powers
now designated as "Superpowers".
The "Superpowers" established by
Florida Statute 709.2202 are:
1. Creating an inter vivos trust;
2. Amending, modifying, revoking
or terminating a trust created by or
on behalf of the principal, only if the
trust instrument explicitly provides
for such action by the settlor's
agent;
3. Making a gift;


* Vision Correction
without Surgery
Optical Department
I Convenient Hours
* Including Evenings


4. Creating or changing rights of
survivorship;
5. Creating or changing a beneficiary
designation;
6. Waiving the principal's right to be
a beneficiary of a joint and survivor
annuity, including a survivor benefit
under a retirement plant; and
7. Disclaiming property and powers
of appointment
The authority to exercise these
"Superpowers" must not only be
specifically outlined in the POA,
but the principal must sign or
initial their name next to each
specific "Superpower". In addition,
the agent may only exercise these
"Superpowers" consistent with the
duty to preserve the principal's
estate plan and the exercising of the
"Superpowers" must notbeprohibited
by any governing document affected.
Furthermore, if the agent is not
related to the principal, the agent
may not use these "Superpowers"
to benefit themselves or anyone for
whom the agent has an obligation to
support.

or reject a POA within a reasonable
time. For example, four days is
deemed a reasonable time for a
financial institution to accept or reject
a POA. A third person who rejects a
POA must explain in writing why
the POA was rejected. Also, third
persons are protected from liability if
their reliance on the POA was done
in a good faith belief that the POA
was properly executed.

Call for Volunteers
for Large Project
Margarete Tober, VP
Gulfport Neighbors
Gulfport Neighbors is embarking
on a project to help another of our
neighbors with needed yard clean-
up as well as repairs and painting
of their home. This project will
take place in four phases. Not all
dates are determined, however, the
schedule is aggressive as we would
like to have this completed in time
for Christmas. The four phases
are: yard clean-up; power washing;
repairs and painting.
We are looking for volunteers to
assist with all facets of this project,
with the most help needed in the
last phase painting.


Date for phases 2 and 3 are to be
determined. They require workers
skilled in power washing (as
parts of the house are somewhat
vulnerable) and home repairs. We
would like to have these efforts led
by professionals with our volunteers
assisting.
Phase 4 will require a whole bunch
of folks to assist with painting the
house and fence.
We are also looking for vendors and
or individuals to assist in providing
building materials, paint and
supplies.


If you can help, in any way,
please message us at the Gulfport
Neighbors Facebook page or by
email at Gulfportneighbors@
yahoo.com. Please provide us with
information on how you can help as
well as dates that you are available -
i.e. weekdays, weekends, etc. Please
also include an e-mail address.
Gulfportians, we are looking
forward to your help in helping to
make a difference and spreading
some holiday cheer!
