"If I'd have known it was going to be this warm, I would
have worn a flapper outfit," Chris Oertle laughs from under
the floppy brim of her hat as she adorns pirates and passers-
by with beads.
As part of the Gulf Beaches Historical Society's annual
Island Fest, Oertle dressed as a St. Pete Beach resident may
have in the early 1900s.

Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings
Appears at Gulfport Library
At the Gulfport Library's Circle of Friends annual
meeting, performer Betty Jean Steinhouser
delighted the standing-room-only crowd by slipping
into character as Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings. She
informed the crowd she liked drinking Chivas and
that having a heart attack was "no fun" because
she couldn't smoke any more.
Rawlings, author of Cross Creek and other
books about Florida, was one of three characters
Steinhouser portrayed. She also appeared as Willa
Cather and Gertrude Stein. Steinhouser, a sought-
after performer and literary and historical circles,
appeared with help from the Florida Humanities

Brakes on Gulfport
Low Speed Vehicles
Some Gulfport businesses thought
they would come out of Tuesday
night's city council meeting with
a partnership between two local
business agencies and the city; some
Gulfport residents, the mayor said,
hoped for the opposite.
In the end, neither group has
satisfaction: Gulfport city council
will debate whether or not to partner
financially with GetGo, a low-speed
electric vehicle taxi service that will
operate in Gulfport, at an upcoming
The Gulfport Merchant's Association
and the Gulfport area Chamber of
Commerce both voted to proceed
with the project, which involves
putting two such taxis into service to
move Gulfport residents and visitors
through the city at no direct cost -
other than tips to the riders. To
keep these vehicles circulating and
help alleviate perceived parking
problems, the two business groups
asked the city who owns the
Casino, which some say contributes
to parking difficulties to join as an
equal financial partner.
At the council meeting, the city
entertained joining forces at a cost of
an estimated $14,000 (for the current)
year. Vice Mayor Dan Liedtke and
Mayor Sam Henderson expressed
concerns about the joint venture, the
former saying he didn't support using
city funds to fund private business
and the latter saying he had heard
from residents who opposed spending
more money downtown.
The Mayor told the Chamber he
would like to see more consensus
throughout the city and that some
residents expressed concern about
the city's decision to spend any
money to help market itself. He said
he had difficulty justifying more
expenditures of a similar nature to
some residents.

dl WqjOn March 11th Vote for Paul Ray for Gulfport City Council from Ward III your Candi-
S date for the Keeping the Character of Gulfport while positioning ourselves for future.
Over the past nearly three months, I have had the great honor to meet so many of my fellow citizens. I have
listened to your issues and comments and answered many of your questions. I have attended Council
SMeetings and Workshops, Art walks, Get Rescued, as well as private functions. I have been invited to many
of your homes to speak, answered emails, returned phone calls, and as your City Council member from Ward
III; I will continue the practice of being open and accessible to each and every person in Gulfport.

While on Council I promise the following:
Work to keep all of our city services not only local but also fully funded without raising taxes, for the future benefit and
safety of all the citizens of Gulfport and our visitors.
Pursue cleanup of the Clam Bayou by advocating for a formal Assessment/Site Inspection as a precursor to determining
the extent of the pollutants which would define our available future courses of action.
Work with S049th St, Chamber, Merchants Associations, patrons, and residents of 49th St Corridor in finding forward
thinking solutions to 49th Street problems, and keeping the public informed of the Brownfield funded Assessment
Working on solutions to the parking issues in downtown, while over flowing parking lots means more people using or
visiting our parks or businesses, we still need to make it accessible for all.
Push for the finality of the mooring field and implementation of the "honey wagon" to continue to clean up Boca Ciega
Maintain the close relationship with the County School system we partner with for our Children's education.
Work to bridge the gaps in agreement between the Chamber, the Merchants, concerned citizens and the City over the
GetGo City/Business partnership. We have heard concerns from both sides and a consensus needs to be reached.
*Working with other coastal municipalities in a concentrated effort to bring a voice from all of our citizens to the State
level and beyond on the Biggert /Water Flood Insurance Issue. Open dialog and research to bring our internet infrastruc-
ture into the fiber option future.
Most importantly collaborate with the City Council on keeping their great strides of progress moving forward with the
Sewers, the Marina, the Floating Docks, and so much that we should applaud them for.

In keeping with the nonpartisan municipal elections, I selected only a few endorsements from organizations and
fellow Gulfportians. In local elections we have a nonpartisan race, we do not have a Democratic versus a Republican as
we do in our Congressional Special Election, and this current Council race is an example of that as I am a registered

"Our board felt that you had a better grasp of the local issues and were more in touch with the community".
~ Joe Farrell, Director of Governmental Affairs Pinellas Realtor Organization on giving their full endorsement.

"On March 11 th, I'll be voting for Paul Ray for a number of reasons. First, when I met him for the first time, I asked him
very specific questions about very specific problems and received not only equally specific answers, but answers that had
viable action plans attached. Second, his concern for the 49th St. corridor has been a stated priority since the very
beginning of his candidacy, and again, he has a plan not platitudes. Third, having seen him at City Council meetings, I
really was impressed with both his enthusiasm and his ability to disagree without being disagreeable. I want our city to
continue to have a civil team of representatives for all of our citizens". Faun Weaver, self-employed, campaign volunteer
for Alex Sink.

"It is nice to have a candidate such as Paul, he has the people and the city of Gulfport as his priority. He does not have a
certain group or area directing him. It is fresh and exciting to see someone with a willingness to look into the issues, do
research that looks at the History of Gulfport, while we take our city into the future. Paul has a methodical and logical
way of approaching the issues, and I appreciate that in him". Mark Grantham, Teacher. or call 727-827-2798

Although the city could use funds
set aside for exclusive use in the
Waterfront Redevelopment District
(WRD), City Manager Jim O'Reilly
told council that, of the remaining
$28,000 in this year's fund, most of
that money will have other uses.
"There are other uses being discussed
for a percentage of it," he said after
the meeting.
Mayor Henderson suggested
starting by investing $4,000 and
taking things slowly, but Ward Three
Councilmember Jennifer Salmon

said she wanted to change the city's
"Memo of Understanding" with the
Chamber, calling City Manager
O'Reilly's initial memo "inadequate."
Instead of going with the mayor's
plan, council ultimately voted to
hold off on the project until the
manager created another memo of
understanding. Council will discuss
the possibility of partnership "ideally"
at the April workshop.

We have been called liars by our opponents.
Let's review the facts, and let you be the judge of who's lying and why!

We were accused of lying about their role in the proposed changes to the South
Pasadena Corridor Plan. We did say that they had voted for the lane reductions and the removal of
height and density restrictions; they denied that they had. The minutes of the December 2012 Commission Meet-
ing recorded their approval of the consultant's recommendations for lane reductions (two) and the removal on both
height and density restrictions by a 5 to 0 vote.
Think about it, where's the common sense. We get two less lanes and more people squeezed into the same area
(taller buildings result in a greater population density per square foot). A greater population density means more
people having to use the remaining four lanes on Pasadena Avenue. This wisdom cost the tax payers $100,000
and counting.
Why should you be outraged by the decisions of these commissioners? Easy, their thinking process reflects a
callous disregard for our safety. No one whose family has lived here for nearly two centuries has to be told that the
Pinellas County corridors are hurricane evacuation routes. Why, then, would any commissioner vote for a proposal
that eliminates one-third of the escape lanes and, at the same time, increases the size of the population using
those remaining escape lanes.
The two incumbents only changed their vote in May when they realized that the lane reduction issue would lead to
the end of their political career. They did, however, vote for the elimination of the height and density restrictions.

The incumbents have claimed credit for enacting senior tax exemptions, holding
the line on tax increases and increasing the duration of the yellow light at those
intersections with cameras.
1. In fact, they have had no role in any of these events. The State and Pinellas County were entirely responsible for
the tax exemptions. This commission was one of the last to vote for the exemption.
2. There were never any proposals to increase tax revenues. (although, we wonder if the $300,000 reduction in the
emergency fund (General Fund) was used to offset the need for tax increases).
3. The change in the yellow light timing was entirely at the instigation of Noah Pransky (Channel 10-WTSP).

We are in favor of burying all utility and cable wiring and eliminating all tele-
phone poles from Pasadena Avenue.
Our opponents have constantly harped on cost and traffic delay issues without any factual cites. If these were
actual deal breakers, why would Treasure Island choose to move ahead with the project? Why St. Pete Beach
would be looking at cable burying. Don't you think that they have looked at the potential disruptions to traffic and
emergency vehicles?
The cosmetic attraction is obvious. What isn't so obvious is the safety benefit. If the telephone poles were to come
down in a storm or hurricane, traffic would come to a screeching halt on our streets and corridors.

Calling All Churches
"If you saw a homeless child sitting on the doorstep at your church, would
you give this child shelter"? asked Tom Cioffi of Family Promise, a nationally
acclaimedprogram for homeless families with children coming to St. Petersburg.
He was speaking to representatives from local churches and members of the
community at an outreach event February 18th hosted by Central Christian
Church in St. Petersburg.
Family Promise of Pinellas is working to partner with churches and volunteers
in the St. Petersburg area and is committed to helping children and their
parents move from homelessness to independence. Families are sheltered
while services are provided to secure employment, social services and housing
for the family.
"This is an amazing program. We're ALL IN" said pastor Rich Franz from
Central Christian Church in St. Petersburg.
The next outreach event is Tuesday, March 18th at 7:00 p.m. at Central
Christian Church, 6161 22nd Ave. N. in St. Petersburg. All area churches are
invited, as well as members of the community.
Family Promise was founded over 20 years ago and is embraced in 182
cities across the country. The home office is in Summit, New Jersey. The
organization's mission is, to help homeless and low income families with
children achieve sustainable independence. "We've served about 500,000
people in the last 20 years and most of our clients are children" said Cioffi.
According to the Florida Department of Children & Families' Council on
Homeless Report released in June 3013, there are 3085 homeless children in
Pinellas County and 63,685 in the State of Florida, however, there is always a
question of "under-counting" children because parents fear their children will
be taken away if they're homeless.

Lum Atkinson to Grand
Marshall Parade
On March 8, 2014, Gulfport Little
League will celebrate our opening
day. We will have our annual parade,
which begins at the Lum Atkinson
Field on 54th South. The parade
route winds through the streets
of Gulfport, in and around Beach
Blvd. and downtown, and eventually
returning to Atkinson field.
Little League International is
celebrating their seventy-fifth year
and they can think of no better way
to honor this milestone than to have
the namesake of their field as the
Grand Marshall for the opening day
Lum Atkinson coached baseball in
Gulfport from the 1950s to the late
1970s, and then returned again in
the 1990s to coach his grandson.
He has been an integral part of
Gulfport Little League and this
community for many years. Many
of the residents in Gulfport today
played baseball on a team coached
by Lum Atkinson; in fact, current
Gulfport Little League President, Jon
Harker played on Lum's team. Lum
can still be found around the field
that bears his name during games
or sitting in on board meetings from
time to time. They honor this local
hero for his dedication to the youth
of Gulfport and to the community.
Come out to help them celebrate
opening day and say hello to Lum
and enjoy concessions from the newly
refurbished concession stand. March
8th at 10 a.m. at Lum Atkinson field!

Thanks to the Gabber for allowing me and my opponent for City Council Ward III to share our thoughts on a variety of topics in last week's
edition. Occasionally some areas of a verbatim transcription may not resonate and so I offer the following to reiterate and expound u pon
several areas --- for the record and to clear the record.
When Getting More Information and Facts isthe Responsible Thing to Do
'My approach is to develop opinions iand i espor,.e to aid ,i iues by doirn 17, reeadrh and collecring tac s It is clear to me that
some of the responses to questions answered by my opponent were in need of more factually-based references.

Ward Three Engagement, Representation and Needs
I am sure Ward Three residents are as engaged as residents in other Wards, Although Ward Three may be mentioned less overall, our well-
beill g quality lit ifeid rived for ,rodi. jidc lhougtjlCoin;rl.l rnrn.r r,'r.r., r,1 As the Council member representing Ward
Three, I will make myself visible and available to the residents, keep lines of communication open, address areas needing attention, and
increase our engagement with the Stetson community. At the oris eto lth, cariTpaign I pledged my "commitment to the community." As
a Council member, I will continue to embrace this pledge, and make a difference for Ward Three as well as the community at large.
First Black Person on Council and Race as a Factor in the Campaign
am a Latina of Puerto Rican hertae. raving been bum in Philadelphia. Penriylvan Duiir ihi arnipaigr I have knocked on hundreds
of doors throughout the city and have not once experienced any form of racial bias. Gulfport is a diverse and dynamic community,
respectful of all people. I believe this city is well beyond having concern for a person's color or race, and is simply focused on choosing the
best candidate for City Council. I am confident that the voters of Gulfport will base their decision on the candidates' responses to issues
and ideas along with each candidates' personal and professional qualifications.

Bladder Management
Did you know that as many as
25 million Americans are affected
by some form of incontinence and
70-85% of them are women? Most
people do not seek help because they
feel it is part of the normal aging
process. Well it is not! Actually nearly
80% of bladder control cases can be
improved or even cured.
You are invited to the Gulfport
Senior Center, 5501 27th Avenue S.
on Wednesday, March 12th at 2 p.m.
to learn about a non-invasive, drug-
free bladder control program.
Must be a registered Gulfport Senior

Final Thoughts from Gulfport Ward Three Candidates

Paul Ray:
I would like to take this opportunity
to correct a misconception about who
I am politically. Many people think
that even local elections are made up
of a democrat versus a republican,
but that is simply not true. I am
a registered Independent who is
fiscally conservative and socially
liberal. I enjoy the luxury of deciding
who I am going to vote for based on
their qualifications and voting record
and not because of my party loyalty
which makes for better decisions on
candidates. This same mindset will
be what I use as your city council
I would like to point out the
differences between my opponent
and myself. I have maintained an
unchanged core set of issues and
ideas, 49th St Corridor (for which I
was taken to task by my opponent in
the debates as being wrong), Clam
Bayou cleanup, sewer and storm
drain repairs, maintaining our parks
keeping our services local and fully
funded, all the while making sure
to guard against tax increases. My
opponent has switched positions on
49th Street corridor and stated in
her ad that it does have crime and
needs redevelopment. We both signed
onto the campaign for a nonpartisan
race and I have maintained that, my
opponent accepted endorsements
by several party affiliations. I
have presented various ideas and
solutions, she has offered rhetoric or
promises to research.
I have formed an inclusive group of
people to support me from all aspects
of Gulfport and even those from
previous extremes. I believe that my
candidacy has been one of a positive
nature and people who have met me
come away with a sense of my deep
commitment and my passion for the
awesome city that is Gulfport. I look
forward to being your city council

Gabber March 6 -March 12, 2014

Yolanda Roman:
In December, upon qualifying as a
candidate for Gulfport city council,
we organized and energized a very
dedicated group of volunteers who
enabled me to launch a very effective,
ethical and fun campaign. During the
months of January and February,
our team knocked on hundreds of
doors throughout the four wards,
designed numerous informative ads
for every Gabber issue since the end
of December, participated in two
candidate forums, and executed 10
enjoyableMeet-the-Candidate events.
We also communicated with voters
via mailers to thousands of residents.
The most rewarding part of these last

75 days, was the personal contact with
Gulfport residents, hearing about the
issues important to them, listening to
their concerns, and having them get
to know me and my "Commitment to
the Community." I am also honored
to have received endorsements from
a broad range of past and present
elected officials, community leaders
and respected organizations.
I am honored to have had this
opportunity to run for Gulfport
City Council. This has been a very
rewarding experience, one that I will
always value. On March 11, I would
appreciate your vote as Gulfport
elects a new Ward III council

you buy. In answer to this issue, Industry

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

-"yr ou could say my
Smotto is 'been there,
-- done that'," says Keith
Sanders, from Sanders Law,
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

"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.



W *-- A4 A ,..

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

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
we would like the chance
to show those to you.
Only you can make the call.
Evening and weekend
appointments are available.

Ward Advisors and the Next Beach Cleanup
The March Gulfport Neighbors Column

By Rose-Marie Seawall
President, Gulfport Neighbors
Gulfport Neighbors has begun
to blossom out of its three-year
germination stage, because of the
many helping hands and big hearts of
our volunteers, monetary donations
of our Luminaries (the name we
have chosen for the various levels
of monetary donations), and in-kind
gifts of our other benefactors, all
critical components needed to fulfill
our mission: "to inspire, motivate
and unite our neighbors to improve
the quality of life in Gulfport."
We are fortunate to have the critical
mass of caring residents, business
owners, andcommunity organizations

(Watkins ID 479671)

which have recognized the need for
increasing neighborly caring and
sharing if Gulfport, Florida is to
maintain its unique character as it
grows and prospers.
Whether it is an hour of beach
cleanup, a half day painting a fence,
cold drinks for our volunteers,
guidance in filing forms, or dollars
to cover expenses, we are grateful.
These are only a few examples of
how generous people have been in
helping us make a difference in our
We are excited about the recent

will work with our dedicated police
officers assigned to specific zones
within our city and serve as key
liaisons between the Wards and the
GN Board. GN Ward Advisors will
be instrumental in building a core of
caring neighbors, volunteers within

Ward Advisors

Working together, we can accomplish
much good in our community. Will
there be frustrations, road blocks,
rainy days, and limited volunteers
and resources? Yes, but throughout
history the human spirit always met
the challenge.
Gulfport Neighbors won't be able to
fix all the wrongs, injustices, abuses,
broken houses and lives in our
midst, but if we can build a force of
committed neighbors who will reach
out to each other in time of need
and help where they can... Mission
Our next monthly GN Beach and
Area Cleanup is coming up at 9 a.m.
this Saturday, March 8. We gather
at Shelter Four and work until 11
a.m., after which we will gather for
a "pay-your-own" brunch (local spot
to be announced.) Volunteers are
encouraged to wear sunscreen, hats,
and good foot protection. Please bring
your gloves, trash bag, plus a grabber
and/or rake if you can. Water will be
provided, as will good friendship.

ottoIoroscope Guide

The water signs (Cancer, Scorpio
and Pisces) are the signs of healing.
When planets transiting through the
wetter part of the astro-landscape
form harmonious triangles to one
another, the result is optimum
energy available for the healing of
body, mind and spirit. It happens
twice this week: first between the sun
and the moon on Tuesday, and then
on Thursday the sun and Saturn
bring a soul remedy that heals on
even deeper levels.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20).
How you label things inside your
own head matters. Choose pleasing
names. It will improve how you think
of the things and activities in your
life and what you do next because
of that. It also will affect how others
think of what you present and their
receptiveness to your ideas.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). You'll
be a kind of casting director this
week, lining up the right people
for different roles. The ability to
recognize ability is a talent. There's
something you don't have the skills
to do yourself for which you will be
seeking help. Be choosy. You really
have an excellent sense of who will
do a job right. Trust yourself.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20).
Feelings don't lie. They come
about through the filter of our
individual makeup and therefore
can be quite unpredictable. This
week you will experience the same
set of circumstances as someone
else and will have a completely
different reaction. You're both right.
Respect each other's differences, and
harmony prevails.
GEMINI (I.nv 21-June 21). Truly,
you needn't obsess about your level
of attractiveness. It's a good, high
level. Just trust that. Don't worry
about how to change the assets you
were born with -- they don't need
changing! What counts is how you
put yourself together and behave, and
you'll have fun making adjustments
to that equation.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). This
week's cosmic gift is an even better
sense of smell than usual -- and it's
a useful gift, indeed. It will keep you

from danger and foul-tasting food.
And on a more subliminal level, it
will lead you to interact with those
who are chemically compatible. Your
personal life will flourish as you obey
your animal instincts.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). When
the social pressure is on -- and at
times it will be on in a big way this
week -- it may help to imagine that
you're in a different country, a place
where you don't know the language
and are therefore not required to
say anything particularly witty,
intelligent or insightful. All you have
to do is relax and enjoy.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). There
is no such thing as a universally
appealing aesthetic; however, people
generally like people who make them
feel good about themselves. Your
healthy level of respect for others,
yourself and your environment will
attract new friends and admirers
this week.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You'll
have a few social options this week,
and so you may as well choose the
one most likely to bring kindness,
sunshine and fun into your world.
It's something to keep in mind when
you're choosing topics of conversation,
as well. Gravitate to the topics likely
to lead to upbeat interaction.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21).
Dancers make a study of the carriage
of the body. For that matter, so do
people who work in security and
psychology, professional gamblers,
athletes, pickup artists, and any
human trying to get needs met by
others. Body language tells a story,
and this week you clearly understand
that story.
21). Like anyone trying to make
something of his or her life, you've
had plans that didn't work out and
goals that were never achieved.
Chalk it up to education. You'll take
what you've learned and head toward
a new dream. This one is doable and,
with the right support and diligence,
can be had in a matter of months.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19).
You like a good drama in books
and movies, but when it comes

to your environment, harmony is
your preference. When people don't
get along, it affects you, whether
or not you are involved. Amid
feuding family members, friends or
colleagues, you will be the voice of
reason and reconciliation.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18).
Seduction is a spell with a shelf life.
If a person, a material item or a
lifestyle choice is seducing you, and
you are being tempted even though
you might not be able to afford it,
one strategy is to wait it out. Once
the expiration date has passed, in all
likelihood you will wonder, "What
was I thinking?"
This Week's Birthdays: Your
intuition will be heightened this
year. You'll accurately read your
environment andwillbe guidedby the
signs and symbols around you that
have personal significance. Projects
that revolve around communication,
creativity and your unique style of
doing business will net you big bucks
over the next 10 weeks. In May, an
admirer will help you with family
duties and travel. June brings time
to yourself to refresh your outlook
and get your life on the track you
prefer. Singles find love in July.

Mind Master

F.I.O.H., M.S. Counseling Psychologist

The fastest and most effective way to achieve
personal development is through the subcon-
cious, the "blueprint of the brain". Perhaps the
most widely known method to achieve this is
What is hypnosis? As defined by Wikipedia,
hypnosis is a wakeful state of focused
attention and heightened suggestibility with
diminished peripheral awareness. While in
this state, messages can reach the subcon-
cious "reprogramming" certain aspects of
your mindset. This is what makes the idea of
hypnosis so appealing to those seeking relief
from stress or anxiety, the strength to
overcome bad habits, the power to increase
confidence and unleash creativity.
Hypnotherapy: Therapy undertaken while the
subject is under hypnosis.
The Process: The hypnotherapist discusses
the issues you want to deal with, such as
stress, self-image, weight loss, smoking
cessation, nail biting or other bad habits,
overcoming fears, managing anger, pain, etc.
then explains hypnosis, induces a hypnotic
state, during which the therapist addresses
those issuesby means of suggestion, affirma-
tions or other techniques. It's important to be
able to trust your hypnotherapist.
Hypnosis & Personal Developement
Quit smoking. Lose weight. Overcome
shyness. Gain confidence. Enhance your
powers of creativity. Gain freedom from
phobias. Improve health. Increase success.
Relieve pain and much more. These are just
some of 1- r ,h4

St. Pete Beach Candidates Tackle the Issues

This Tuesday, all St. Pete Beach residents will elect a mayor either incumbent
Mayor Steve McFarlin or challenger Maria Lowe. In addition, District One
voters will choose between incumbent Lorraine Huhn and challenger (and
wife of former mayor, Mike Finnerty) Terri Finnerty. Voters in District Three
will have two new candidates from which to choose: Jim Anderson, who has
run before and is currently suing St. Pete Beach over its implementation of
its Comprehensive Plan, and Greg Premer, the former president of the Belle
Vista Civic Association. Before making your decision, please read their answers
(unedited except to correct spelling and grammar) to the questions we asked.

What would you, as a
commissioner, do to
curb the city's legal
issues and expenses?

Mayoral Candidates

Steve McFarlin: After
years of litigation and
ongoing discussions, it
appears we have finally
come to a final conclusion in
the implementation of our
Comprehensive Plan. Many
compromises were made by
city leadership along with
residents and their counsel
that has resulted in a fair
and sustainable plan going
forward. The only active
case left in the court's hands
is that of an appeal filed by
one resident challenging
the court's previous ruling
concerning procedural issues
and not that of the content
of the Comprehensive Plan
itself. In other words it
certainly appears that most
are now in agreement on the
redevelopment of our city.
These excessive legal fees
should now be a thing of the
past. One of the issues that
was addressed was height
limitations in specific areas.
The plan was amended to a
reduced level of "146 over
base flood level inclusive
of parking structures
eliminating the fear of 20
story monstrosities.

Maria Lowe: For a city our
size, the multi-million dollar
legal expenses we've incurred
over the past several years
are disastrous. We deserve
better, and we can do better.
While litigation related to

the comprehensive plan has
cost us the most, the city is
frequently engaged in legal
disputes on other issues such
as code enforcement and
zoning. The commission can
develop policy that requires
the city to first exhaust
alternativestolitigation, such
as negotiation, mediation,
and arbitration. As a city, we
are so much better off when
we resolve conflicts between
residents and the city rather
than surrendering those
decisions to the courts who
have no vested interest in
our city.

District One Candidates

Lorraine Huhn: The
inability, thus far, to convince
those who oppose measured
redevelopment that without
redevelopment the burden
will fall on homeowners and
small business owners to
financially support delivery
of city services.

Terri Finnerty: One of
the skills I will bring to the
commissions mybackground
as a state-certified mediator.
I will bring both sides
together, forge a resolution
and help us move forward.
There is a feeling throughout
our city that this has gone on
way too long and coming to
a resolution is way overdue.
We now need to redirect
our funds to critical issues
regarding our infrastructure
and revitalization of our

District Three

Jim Anderson: I will
work to improve honesty,
integrity and transparency
in our city government. St
Pete Beach has numerous
lawsuits. To move forward
the city should be exploring
low cost arbitration and have
a regular review of legal

Greg Premer: When elected
I would immediately request
an informal meeting with
all those who are currently
suing our city and find out
what it will take to end the
lawsuits. Most of these folks
live here and there certainly
must be away to find common
ground and move forward.
The only people winning in
these ongoing lawsuits are
the attorneys.

The couplet: are you for
it or against it, and why?

Mayoral Candidates

ML: The couplet is just
one part of what must
be an overall vision for
redevelopment and it is
essential that we engage our
community more effectively
in that conversation. I fully
support a master plan for our
city based on a vision for the
future so that we know where
to guide our redevelopment
and infrastructure
improvements. A master
plan should include a best
use configuration and
design for our roadways.

When I have asked about
the couplet, the feedback
varies: some like the couplet,
some don't like it, and some
just don't understand it.
Traffic is an issue and even
more so at this time of year!
If we are to enhance our
beach, we must answer the
question of seasonal traffic
congestion! The Michael
Baker Group is scheduled
to submit three options for
street improvements in the
Corey area to the city the
week of March 4. The options
will include the couplet and
two alternative designs. It's
too early to say yes or no to
any of the three options. My
priority would be to listen to
the citizens input about the
proposals and seek quality
communication between city
hall and those impacted by
the changes. Community
workshop sontheconsultant's
plan will be held later this
month. I encourage everyone
to attend.

SM: Currently the entire
Corey area is being studied
by one of the nation's top
urban planning groups, the
Baker Group. We will be
reconvening in the latter
part of March to review
their findings and give
consideration to the various
options that this group
proposes. In order to make
any final decision on the
"couplet" theory we must
review their findings and
consider all resident and
business owner feedback.
I invite all to attend the
upcoming workshops.

District One Candidates

TF: I am very excited about
the potential of the couplet
since pedestrian safety is
a priority for me. We have
had 19 deaths on our roads
in St. Pete Beach and need
to be concerned about this
issue. Also, parking will

Gabber March 6 -March 12, 2014

be improved for everyone,
businesses and residents,
however, most importantly
I want to make certain that
the businesses affected by
this change will be more
accessible and profitable as a
result of its implementation.
LH: The explanation of
features and benefits of the
"couplet" will be forthcoming
when the Baker Group
continues their workshop
schedule. I am open to learn
the outcome of the research
of this traffic control

District Three

GP: I attended two meetings
of the Baker Group to hear
firsthand how the couplet
might improve traffic flow
andcreate a more pedestrian-
friendly environment for
Corey Avenue. I will make a
decision on this subject after
the Baker Group presents
it's findings later this month
or in April.

JA: All of the small business
owners I have talked to are
against it. Residents have
expressed skepticism as the
couplet is a very expensive
project costing over $3M
and could require the city
to use eminent domain. I'm
committed to spending our
tax dollars wisely and am
not convinced this is the best
way for our city to spend its

What is your vision,
aesthetically, for
St. Pete Beach?

Mayoral Candidates

SM: A family-friendly
that showcases our most
valuable assets including
our historical areas, our
quaint downtown area and
an updated resort district
which will increase our
tax base and lessen the

load on our residents. Our
new comprehensive plan
will accomplish this and
at the same time preserve
the quality of life in our
residential districts.

ML: St. Pete Beach already
boasts history and character
that gives rise to our
small town charm. The
Mediterranean theme of
architecture at city hall and
the Don CeSar bookend our
city from the bridge entries.
These landmarks can inform
our vision for how the city will
look with redevelopment and
expand to create a consistent
character that is clearly
our own. Creating Land
Development Regulations
for the character districts is
an excellent way to facilitate
a consistency in aesthetics.
Furthermore, the city can
achieve symmetry with
streetscapes, benches, trolley
shelters, gateways to beach
access, streetlights, trash
and recycling receptacles
and landscaping. The Corey
area, Dolphin Village and
8th Avenue in Pass-A-
Grille can share island-wide
character while expressing
a unique identity of their
own. After biking our city
streets, I'm intensely aware
of the safety concerns for
our significant pedestrian
population so creating safe
paths for walking and biking
is paramount beyond just
aesthetics as well!!

District One Candidates

LH: My aesthetic vision
for St. Pete Beach
includes beautification
of neighborhoods tidy,
well-maintained properties;
attractive, well lit safe
pedestrian areas; business-
friendly commercial areas
and a general proud
community atmosphere.

TF: I think we are great
now. We need to continue
to enforce our city codes
and encourage landscaping

for both residential and
commercial properties. We
need to regulate signage
for our local businesses
without putting them at a
competitive disadvantage
to nearby businesses. Our
hotels are outdated and need
to be allowed to redevelop
while ensuring our residents
that our infrastructure will
support that vision.

District Three

JA: I would promote
and support a city-wide
architectural code to
establish beach-friendly
designs for businesses and
resort environments. This
would create a brand unique
to St Pete Beach.
We need to address the
rundown areas of the city
by seeking grants and
other means to promote

GP: I envision more green
space, more beach access
for the residents, wider
sidewalks down Gulf
Boulevard and encourage
investment in the Corey
Avenue/75th Street entrance
to our city to reinvigorate
the empty lots and buildings
that "clutter" the north end
of the city.

What will codes and
ordinances, as a
commissioner, will you
modify or implement
to upgrade St. Pete
Beach's curb appeal?

Mayoral Candidates

ML: In many cases, we do
need curb appeal upgrades.
Our codes and ordinances
must provide clear direction
on where, what and how
things can be done so that all
redevelopment contributes
to our community's overall
vision. We need to establish
consistency between our
development policies and

codes or redevelopment
will be an administrative
nightmare for both city staff
and the people who want to
redevelop their property.
The city also needs to
review our policy on signage.
Currently, city licensing
and fees are prohibitive for
our small business owners.
Likewise, many small
businesses feel restrained in
terms of signage to promote
their sales and special
events. Utilizing allowable
encroachments is an effective
way of addressing resident
issues as well.

SM: I believe the new
comprehensive plan
encompasses many new
codes and ordinances which
will accomplish what many
have wished for such as 100"
setbacks in our large hotel
districts, beach accesses,
reducedsignageheights along
with many other pedestrian-
friendly amenities. Also we
must maintain and enforce
short term rental codes
within our residential areas.
Code Enforcement is now
being administrated by the
Sheriffs department, which
will increase compliance.

District One Candidates

TF: I will encourage more
residential and commercial
landscaping. We need to find
a creative solution for the
empty lots and lots used for
parking on Gulf Boulevard,
which detract from the
beauty of our main road
leading in and out of the city.
I would rather see something
other than parked cars and
port-a-potties as I drive down
Gulf Boulevard. Again, I will
bring us together and find
common sense solutions.

LH: Codes will be supportive
of the city's overall business

Gabber March 6 -March 12, 2014

District Three

GP: Fix and repave the
roads, especially parts of
Belle Vista, sections of
Gulf Boulevard and, most
importantly, Pass-A-Grille
Way. Strengthen the "put
some real teeth" into our
code enforcement laws and
clean up our many foreclosed
and neglected properties. I
would like to look into what
Belleair Beach is doing with
their code enforcement laws,
including the possibility of
demolition of those properties
that warrant condemnation.
Landscaping of public areas
of the city, especially Corey
Avenue and including
"uplighting" the palm trees
along Gulf Boulevard and
Blind Pass.

JA: The problem isn't with
our codes and ordinances.
The problem is they are not
being enforced. I will work to
make the city andcommission
more accountable to the

What will your service
as commissioner do for
the resident who does
not own a business or
work on St. Pete Beach?

Mayoral Candidates

SM: My 50 years in the
area gives me complete
understanding of what the
residents desire and demand.
Understanding the dynamics
of our residential/resort
community is paramount in
even considering serving as
mayor. I know both sides and
I know them well. I support
business but at the same
time I have put tremendous
effort in protecting our
neighborhoods and
maintaining that dividing
line between commercial and
residential. That knowledge
can only be derived from
long term residency, there
is no substitution for real life
experience here.

ML: I know from talking
with hundreds of residents
from one end of the
island to the other that
neighborhood preservation,
code enforcement, traffic,
rebuilding our sewer,
potable and reclaimed water
systems, repaving streets
and improving our business
districts are all matters of
serious concern. We need to
protect our neighborhoods by
dealing fairly and effectively
with problem property
owners and by putting a
clear plan of action in place
to rebuild infrastructure.
We also need to expand our
property tax base through
redevelopment and to reduce
the residents' share of taxes
by securing alternative
sources of revenue and
funding from the county,
state and public-private

District One Candidates

LH: As Commissioner I have
concentrated on balance
between residential and
commercialinterests. expect
to focus on maintaining
balance in the future.

TF: I will work to ensure we
live in a safe vital community.
I will make sure taxes are
kept as low as possible while
providing the services we
need and desire. I will get in
front of the flood insurance
issue and work with every
level of government to help
alleviate this concern for
citizens. I am excited about
Gulf Beaches Elementary
School reopening this fall
and would like to see us
work on getting a senior
transportation program in
St. Pete Beach, similar to
our neighbor Gulfport, for
our aging population.

District Three
JA: During the campaign I
have talked with hundreds

of residents. Their top three
concerns are roads, sewers
and code enforcement. I will
bring a positive new energy
to District Three to have
these concerns addressed. I
will work to fast-track road
improvements, start sewer
system upgrades, and review
code violations and demand
code enforcement take place
with monthly reviews.

GP: I think this question
applies to the majority of
people living in District
Three, including my family.
My priority is to work
with the city to provide a
clean, safe and appealing
environment for all residents
to enjoy while at the same
time provide the support for
our number one industry
on the island, our tourist
industry. I strongly believe
the Comprehensive Plan
that was approved by the
majority of residents should
It is a balanced plan that
protects our residents and
will generate the revenues
needed to upgrade our aging
infrastructure without
increasing taxes on our

Describe the average
beach resident.

Mayoral Candidates

ML: My experience is that
SPB residents are really
above average. From those
who were born and have
stayed here to those who
chose to make this their
home, we have such a
wonderful variety of people
from all over the country
and world. We are fortunate
to have residents who are
rich in life experiences,
who come from a broad
range of backgrounds and
professions, and who care
about our city. I got into this
race because I was asked to,
but I'm working everyday to
win because I'm inspired by
the people I've met along the


SM: NO such person...
Again, during my long
term residency here I have
cultivatedmanyrelationship s
with all demographics. I have
raised three children here on
the beach, which gives me
an additional perspective of
many of our younger families.
I have served many of our
residents in my professional
years which includes many
of our local retirees and
seasonal residents. There
is no average person and
fortunately I have had the
privilege of sharing life and
experience with every class
of person on this island. I
understand them and feel
I can better serve them
because I am one of them.

District One Candidates

TF: We are a diverse
community, but we are fun
loving, accepting, caring,
willing to help others and
enjoy our special slice of
paradise. I will work to
bring us closer together and
celebrate our differences.

LH: There is no "average
beach resident"! We come
in all sizes, ages and
backgrounds. What we have
in common is the appreciation
and love of St. Pete Beach for
its potential.

District Three

GP: This is an impossible
task due to the incredible
diversity of our District
Three residents. While there
are many retired folks (full-
time a part-time) there are
also hundreds of families
like mine (my wife Melisa
and my three daughters)
and commuters to St. Pete,
Tampa and Bradenton who
all have one thing in common:
we were all lucky enough to
find a great little town with
an idyllic climate that's close
to, but still removed from, the

Gabber March 6 -March 12, 2014

advantages of living in a larger city.
And during this campaign, speaking
with hundreds of our residents, the
feeling is nearly universal that it's
time to end the lawsuits and move
forward to keep improving our way
of life in the years to come.
JA: The best part of St. Pete Beach
is there is no average resident. What
unites us is that we have all chosen to
live in St Pete Beach with its unique
small town character and beautiful

What are the three largest
issues facing St. Pete Beach?

Mayoral Candidates

SM: It is certainly a given that our
50-plus-year infrastructure will be
our constant focus going forward.
This is our top priority and vast
improvements have been funded
and installation of new state of the
art equipment is slated for later this
Floodinsurance. This is an issue that
affects every property owner on this
island. We are putting every effort
forth in combining our strengths with
other local communities in taking our
concerns to the Federal level.
Securing a CRAin order to incentivize
investment in our "areas of concern".
This will not only increase our tax
base lessening the load on residents,
it will improve our quality of life from
a safety standpoint and an increase
in enjoyable amenities for all.

ML: In the recent mayoral debate, I
answered this question with "Poop,
Potholes, and Polarization." While
that may sound funny, these are
the most serious issues that face the
Our infrastructure has been
allowed to deteriorate to the point
that we are now in emergency mode
to rebuild lift stations and pumps as
sewage bubbles up on our streets. It
didn't have to be this way. A plan to
maintain, replace and improve the
system should have been in place
a long time ago. As mayor, I will
insure this doesn't happen again
and that we move forward in a more
thoughtful way.
Our streets are a patchwork of
temporary fixes and potholes. As
we redesign our streets, we must
take into consideration stormwater
Gabber March 6 -March 12, 2014

management to reduce flooding and
to treat polluted water before it is
released into our bay and the Gulf.
Plumbing for potable and reclaimed
water often run under our streets,
so replacement of these systems too
must be considered as we rebuild.
At the same time, streets must be
designed for safety and efficiency.
I have worked with these systems
in a variety of settings, some quite
extreme and at times dangerous.
I have the experience to lead the
way to solve these problems and get
things done correctly.
We need fresh leadership to
move beyond the stalemate on the
Comprehensive Plan. Differences
of opinion can be respected and
agreements to move forward are
possible, but we have to do something
different than what has been done in
the past. I believe open government,
effective community engagement,
and a willingness to do the hard work
of negotiation and compromise will
get us to common ground and put an
end to polarization.

District One Candidates

LH: Three of the large issues are:
focus on maintenance and repair
of infrastructure, public safety and
inspired/measured redevelopment
that will enhance the tax base and
draw visitors to St. Pete Beach as a
desirable destination again.

TF: 1- Flood insurance, we need to
work with every level of government
to fix this problem. 2- Ensure our
aging infrastructure will support our
vision of redevelopment. 3 Promote
the renaissance of Corey Avenue
since this is our jewel and it needs to
be polished.

District Three Candidates

JA: Sewers, traffic studies,
and improving community
Our 50+ year old sewers need to be
fixed now! The traffic management
and other studies need to be done so
our city can get the development it
needs. Finally, the only way to unite
our city is to dramatically increase
information flow so everyone can
have a voice.

GP: 1. Upgrading and improving our
infrastructure: upgrading the sewer
system, paving roads where needed
and maintaining our storm water
runoff system. 2. Code Enforcement
- We have far too many neglected
homes in District Three that, month
by month, become even greater
eyesores and potentially dangerous
places in our neighborhoods. Let's
strengthen and enforce our laws to
force the owners of these properties
to clean them up or demolish
PLAN! By encouraging investment in
our large hotel area and Corey Avenue
we will generate the revenue needed,
through increased commercial taxes
and impact fees, to pay for our new
infrastructure while increasing
everyone's property values without
raising taxes on our residents!

JENNINGS, KRIS, was born and
raised in Bismarck, North Dakota
but always had a calling to live on
the beach. She and her husband,
Ken, moved to St. Petersburg,
Florida to live the dream in 2009.
She spent countless hours walking
along her beloved beaches watching
sunrises and sunsets while shelling
and looking for dolphins. Every shell,
whether perfectly shaped, cracked or
broken was truly amazing to her a
treasure to be cherished, just as she
was to all who knew her. She often
placed some of her most beautiful
shells along the walking paths of
unsuspecting sellers so they could
experience the excitement of a new-
found treasure as well. She found joy
in watching dolphins jumping and
dancing, and got excited each time,
as if she was seeing their show for the
very first time. No sound was more
calming or inspiring to her than the
sound of waves crashing and rolling
ashore. The ocean was the place she
felt closest to God. There she thanked
Him for each and every blessing; for
the warm sand beneath her feet; for
the beautiful sunrises and sunsets

over the ocean, and for the gift of being
able to enjoy them each and every
day. In exchange for the joy each of
these things gave her, she took great
care to leave the ocean and its beaches
far better than she found them, just
as she made our lives far better and
brighter by being a part of them. Just
as she leaves her footprint on the
beaches of St. Petersburg, she leaves
a footprint in the hearts of all who
knew and loved her. Kris peacefully
passed away at home surrounded by
her family on Febraury 25. She will
be greatly missed by her daughters
Missy (Matt) McLeod and (h.l-.v-y
(Christopher) Ternes, grandchildren
(Declan and Emma), beloved dog
Raven, mother Violet Whalen, sisters
Karen Clibourn (Doug Patten), Karla
(Greg) Becker, Kathy (Rick) Adams,
brother Kent Flemmer, nieces and
nephews, and countless friends.
She will be happily reunited with
her husband Ken and her beloved
dogs Bo and Myka. A private beach
celebration will be held in honor of
Kris' life and memory.

Bring Art Back to Art Walk: Collective Soulz

Pays Art Forwa
By Cathy Salustri
People looking for locally
produced art can find it
in Gulfport, but it isn't
always easy. The town's
art gallery, Domain,
showcases local artists,
and the Industrial Art
Center artists often have
their compact galleries
open along "Artist's
Alley", but come the
ArtWalk nights, people
would often complain
the street vendors didn't
sell enough art.
A group called Collective
Soulz, with the support of
the Gulfport Merchant's
Association, wants to
change all that.
Organizer Mark
Spence, a Gulfport
local who supports the
arts but stops short
of calling himself an
artist, explains that, for
a new artist, the street
fairs and festivals can
"They don't want to get
a booth because they're
going to have to get a
tent, table, lights, and
they may not make it,"
he says.
Enter Collective Soulz,
a 100% free launching
pad for emerging artists.
Spence, along with
Terry Foster and the
unwavering support of
the downtownbusinesses,
offers a low-risk, safe
space for artists to "try
on" the ArtWalks.
Here's how it works:
artists have three
ArtWalks to display
their art at the Collective

Soulz table (always at
the north end of Beach
Boulevard). During these
three ArtWalks, they
will have the chance
to see if the sort of art
they make is the sort of
art people want to see
at street festivals and
gallery walks. If it is and
the artist decides to start
setting up his or her own
table at ArtWalk, they
agree to reserve part
of their own booth for
another emerging artist.
"This gives them the
ability to be able to see if
they can actually make
it as a working artist,"
Spence says. "And then
if they do, then what
they'll do is pay for a
booth, we'll help them
set up, they'll set up next
to us, and they will, in
turn, reserve another
small part of their tent
for another artist."
Spence, who says he
came up with the idea
in December, started
Collective Soulz because
he realized ArtWalk's
void of artists had little
to do with a lack of artists
in Gulfport, but the costs
and logistics of setting
up a tent at festivals.
"I see so many people
who make art who
should be accessible to
people who buy art, but
they have no means to do
it," Spence says.
ArtWalk organizer
Suzi King praised
Collective Soulz, saying
she hears a call for more

artists but has difficulty
getting them to display
at the twice-monthly
celebration of Gulfport.
"When ArtWalks
started years ago, yes,
there were more artists,"
she says "but now? It's
harder and harder to
convince artists to pay
the money to rent booth
space, set up a display,
and take a chance.
People don't realize the
expenses street vendors
have they have to buy
tents, tables, lights. It
isn't cheap. I'm thrilled
the local community saw
a need and stepped in to
fill it. We've gotten great
feedback on the first few
nights where Collective
Soulz had emerging
artists on display."
Collective Soulz
currently represents 12
artists whose talents
range from photography
to pottery and from
drawing to music. For
King, Spence, and
everyone involved with
ArtWalk, Collective
Soulz can't move fast
enough to add more art
back into ArtWalk.
"Every time we can
infuse art into this
wonderful town," she
says, spreading her arms
to illustrate her point,
everyone wins."

Red Green Proves He Really Can Do Everything

It may be 70 degrees outside, but in the back of
your closet, we know there is a flannel shirt
waiting to make an appearance at the upcoming
Red Green show that's coming into The Palladium
on March 26th at 7pm.
Red Green (aka Steve Smith) is that affable
handyman who believes 'anything is possible if you
use enough duct tape". The hugely popular, longest
running live-action scripted comedy in the world,
The Red Green Show, continues to be a mainstay
on PBS and the Comedy Network even though the
last original episode was put to tape in 2006. "I'm
sure it will out live me in reruns," said Smith. "We
weren't topical- there were no political jokes that
would date it. I'm meeting kids now who are fans of
the show, who weren't alive when we started doing
When he closed the door on Possum Lodge, Smith
vowed he would never again take out his
suspenders and plaid shirt. However during one of
his 162 games of golf in Florida during his
self-imposed retirement, he found himself on the
greens with a publisher who convinced him to
write a book. The end result was the "How To Do
Everything" (From The Man Who Should Know)
book, which is also the name of the tour heading
across the U.S. this spring.
It's a 90 minute family-friendly show packed full
of DIY tips, relationship advice and as a bonus, an
environmental action plan. "Like fertilizer", Green
notes "it may be spread thinly over many fields,
but you know it's there."
Up until a few years ago, Smith had never done
stand up comedy. "It's odd for a man my age to be

doing something brand new that's not a medical
procedure. This is the most fun I've ever had
performing," he adds, "nothing else is even a close
Last year, in addition to touring Canada, Smith
also released his 3rd book, "Red Green's
Beginner's Guide to Women (For Men Who Don't
Read Instructions)". Like his previous releases,
this one also found a home on the best seller's list,
as he devoted 256 pages to share with other
battle-weary and confused males all he has
learned about the differences between the sexes.
From teen dating to the last words of men ("You
know, honey, in the last couple of years, you've
really packed on the beef), this is the testosterone
owner's manual to every aspect of finding a mate
and then learning to deal with her growing
disappointment in you.
"I think the book's funny as does my wife, which
is even better", said Smith. "The tour is old-style
comedy probably from the 50's. I'm a few decades
behind. I cover a million topics and I think the
audience will have about 500 opportunities to
laugh. Right now, I'm having fun and as soon as
it's not fun, I'll stop. I feel like the best thing I can
do for the audience is to be doing something that I
want to do and then let it go from there they'll
decide when it's over."

WSomethin' on my mind

A By Bill Northrop

The Ukraine and
Russia Again
The year was 1968 in Kiev, capital of
the Ukraine. The Soviet Union was
at the peak of its Cold War power.
Czechoslovaka's Prague Spring
revolution had been crushed by the
Soviet army just three weeks before.
I was one of a group 30 Pennsylvania
news people on a Soviet, tightly
controlled, tour of Moscow, Prague,
Kiev, and the then East and West
For now, however, we were in Kiev
after a short stay in gloomy Moscow
where we were quickly conditioned to
strict rules, continual surveillance,
and talk of a happy, prosperous,
modern, workers' paradise called
the Soviet Union. It did not prepare
us for Kiev which was anything
but happy although its people were
cheerier, friendlier, and its land and
cityscapes prettier and better kept
than those of Moscow.
The animosity between the people of
Kiev and the Russians was palpable.
Our first inkling came on the one-
hour trip from the airport into the
City, a wildly mad drive, during
which the Ukrainian driver told our
Russian guide that he was showing
Americans the skills of Ukrainian
bus drivers. This was after the

We Now Accept Chiropraci
Medicare Providers
Most Insurance Accepted Headaches

CDr. Edward FoleyD.C.

Dr. Edward Foley, D.C.

guide, whom the driver treated with
obvious disdain, complained about
the in and out, high speed thrust
through the night-time country-
side. That the bus engine threw a
rod and stranded us didn't change
his attitude which was very friendly
to us, but cold, cold to our Russian
guide, Irene.
Even though we eventually were
towed (by cable) into Kiev by
another bus, the Ukrainians made
it a prideful point that we were no
longer in Russia, but in the Ukraine.
Exchanging money in Moscow was
very bureaucratic and we were
required to keep track of the money
we had lest we be charged with
smuggling rubles or dollars in or
out. The authorities in Kiev didn't
care. Kennedy half-dollars were in
high demand and got an eight-to-
one exchange. Not to worry", they
said. "You're in Kiev, not Moscow".
Although the Russians and our
guide bragged about how the Soviet
Union cherished and preserved the
culture and language of the Ukraine,
this view was not shared by locals
who told us privately that all things
Ukrainian were put down by the
Russians. This was later echoed
by a group of touring Canadian-
Ukrainians whom we met. The
Ukraine, then and as it is now, was

split by language and loyalties. And,
there is reason for resentment.
Many of the Eastern European
countries such as Poland and
Lithuania, were pawns played in
the game of politician chess with
the great powers. The Ukraine was
no different and the Crimea, now
the hot-spot of Russian invasion,
was that in spades. But, Russia
dominated. The once independent
Ukraine fell to the Soviet Army in
1919, and millions died of starvation
in the Soviet move to collectivize the
farms in 1932-33.
The Ukrainians welcomed the
German liberation in the 1940s until
they began machine gunning the
Jews and anyone who questioned
them. Kiev lost 100,000 to that and
another 100,000 to deportations,
not to mention thousands killed
fighting. The Germans treated the
Slavs nearly as badly as the Jews
so there was not much resistance to
Russian liberation/occupation after
the war.
Nonetheless, in the break-up of the
Soviet Union in 1991, the Ukraine
reclaimed its independence. It has
been a struggle since and by actions
within the last week, it appears
mother Russia will likely, re-impose
its sovereignty over the Ukraine. It
is doubtful that the Ukraine will be
permitted to (or that they want to)
split into Ukrainian and Russian
spheres. Russian President Putin
wants to return to the glory of the
Soviet times and that must make
nervous the people of the Baltics
(Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania) and
the Czechs and Slovaks, Hungarians
and Rumanians. They have all tasted
the lash and power of Russia.
The power now is not necessarily
the army but the energy (gas and oil)
that Russia controls and supplies.
Those are powerful weapons and
Putin has used them powerfully.
Don't expect him to back off any
opportunity he sees. It doesn't bode
well for the Ukraine any more than
it did for the part of Georgia that
Russia now occupies.

The Plymouth Versus
the Thunderbird
A few months ago, Gulfport
Mayor Sam Henderson and
I engaged in what you might
call a "spirited debate". The mayor, it
seems, had received a few phone calls
about a few of my columns. People had
questions. People had issues. People
had demands. Mayor Sam wanted to
let me know I'd left my job half done.
"You don't talk about how to pay
for things," he told me, with no small
measure of frustration in his voice.
Fair enough. I don't. But, really, is
that my job? Shouldn't city staff work
out that sort of thing? I don't, I freely
admit, have all the answers. I don't
know how to fix the problems I discuss
in this column. But, well, Mayor H,
since you asked, here are my thoughts
on Gulfport's finances:
I am tired of being a poor city. I'm
tired of us thinking poor and acting
poor and, as a result, being poor. In
part, that's because I don't believe,
necessarily, that we are poor. We
have a lot going for us, although
yes, we could have more money in
the bank. So could everyone. What's
dictating our future is how we think of
ourselves, and I'm tired of us thinking
like poor people.
When you're poor, you don't think p ast
the next paycheck. You can't. Instead

of replacing your air conditioner, you
fix it, because that costs less money
right now and it's all you can afford.
You go for the cheapest car on the lot
instead of the more expensive one in
better shape.
But I think anyone who has owned
a home or a car knows what happens
next: your power bills get higher and
higher and you keep plugging money
into your air conditioner or car, until
you've outspent what you would have
had you bitten the bullet and just
bought the new air handler or more
expensive car.
That's what Gulfport's been doing,
and I cannot think of a worse way
to spend our tax money. We've
piecemealed together our sewers
and foregone non-essential repairs
(remember when we had beach
pavilions in front of 0 lM.ili.\s?) and
gone without, all because previous
administrations kept us poor. They
wanted Gulfport to be affordable for
everyone. While that's commendable,
we're starting to look like the cheapest
used car on the lot.
The mayor's criticism was this: I am
ready to build a merry-go-round on
the point and turn our beach into a
boardwalk with carnival-style games
and hot dog stands. I want to see a
marina hotel and restaurant. While
I applauded Councilwoman Christine
Brown's vision for the marina and

k-71 1W I ft Cathy galustri

wrote a column suggesting we move
forward immediately, I didn't, the
mayor said, consider how to pay for
That's not true, exactly. I thought
about it a lot; I just didn't talk about
funding in the column. So today,
here's my short answer: find the
money. Apply for grants. Use Penny
for Pinellas funds. An assessment
on our tax bill that ends once it pays
for the construction. Get a loan. A
one-cent "waterfront improvement"
or "cultural enhancement" sales tax.
Structure a lease deal with the hotel
operator and restaurateur that puts
the onus of financing the build on
them. In return, give them a slightly
sweeter lease deal.
Look, a marina hotel and restaurant,
a city-owned boardwalk with lessees
running concession (and sunset
celebrations on the beach with the
vendors renting space from the city)...
all these things? They will make
money. For us. Directly. As in, they
could, conceivably, lower our tax bills.
But to make money, we do have to
spend money. Money does not simply
fall from the sky. We have to take
chances and believe that we are the
city we tell the world we are, because
if that's true if we are as great as
we tell everyone why wouldn't
we invest in ourselves to brighten
up things? Why not spend to give
ourselves a facelift and make our city
less utilitarian and more functionally
So I encourage our city council, as we
go into budget season, to think about
what kind of car they want Gulfport
to be. And don't be afraid to invest in
We are not a Rolls Royce, and I'm not
suggesting we spend like we are. But
we are not a 1983 Plymouth Reliant
with a cracked maroon dashboard,
oxidized gray paint, and one donut
tire keeping us chugging down the
road, either.
I like to think of us as one of the
classics, perhaps an old Thunderbird
with white leather and a convertible
top. That seems appropriate for a
seaside town. But we can be any kind
of car we want to be.
The only question remaining is, what
do we have to do to put you in this car
