St. Petersburg Police Bring
Tourists to Gulfport

St. Petersburg Police officer Chris Dort escorted two lost
tourists into Gulfport.
Last Thursday morning (March 20), Gulfportians
walking along Beach Boulevard looked puzzled as a
St. Petersburg motorcycle police office parked at the
corner of Beach and Shore Boulevards, well inside
Gulfport's city limits.

Meet Commissioner
Terri Finnerty
Former St.
Pete Beach
mayor Mike
Finnerty has
a new role:
the husband
of a politician.
His wife Terri
won the seat
for St. Pete
Beach's District One (the north end
of St. Pete Beach) by a scant 24 votes,
displacing incumbent Lorraine Huhn
and putting the Finnerty family back
in the political spotlight.
Dr. Terri Finnerty says she
considered running for several
months before her husband spurred
her into taking the leap.
"I thought about it for a very long
time," she says. When her husband
told her, "you need to make a
decision," she filed the paperwork.
She told the Gabber she will place
a premium on openness and fairness
on the commission.
"I've seen a couple of things I have
not liked," she says of comments made
from the dais. She believes comments
made to some residents

Officer, from front page
wasn't there to write tickets, though.
He pulled over a mother and daughter
for running a stop sign and realized
they were tourists who lost their way
while trying to find Gulfport.
Instead of telling them how to
get there, Officer Dort took it one
step further: he escorted them to
Gulfport's downtown himself.
"If that were my mother and sister,"
Officer Dort told the Gabber, "and
they were thousands of miles from
home, I'd hope somebody could help
them. That's my job."

Players are
"Stepping Out"
The Gulfport Community Players
will be opening a comedy by Richard
Harris entitled, "Stepping Out", at
the Catherine A. Hickman Theater of
Gulfport on April 3rd. This play will
run through April 20th.
This show has been a play, a
musical, and a movie. The director,
Richard Rosen, is doing it as a play,
although it does have plenty of music
and dancing in it. It's not often you
have a choreographer for a play, but
this play has an excellent one by the
name of Rose Mallare. She has had
her work cut out for her, to say the
very least!
The cast includes Vivian Rossbach,
Aleesa Shaw, Elizabeth Bell, Eileen
Navarro, Suzy Fritz, Pat Mahan,
Jean Pelligrini, Kevin Lawrence,
Annie Murren, Jennifer Casler,
Mason Mills, and Eddy Ganim.
"Stepping Out" has got tap dancing
in it, a lot of tap dancing, to some
great music of yesteryear. It's also
got a very moving story to tell about
a group of people, of different ages
and backgrounds, all of whom, for
different reasons, decide to take tap
dancing classes in the basement of
a church. Most of these people have
never tapped danced before, so you'll
see their ups and downs as they slowly
try to advance in their training.
Their instructor, named Mavis, has
seven ladies and one gentleman in
her class. But, as you probably can
imagine, anytime you get a diverse
combination of people together for a
common goal, you're going to get a
lot of drama to go along with it. The

Gabber March 27-April 2, 2014
Gabber March 27 -April 2, 2014

main focus of the play is on these
dramas that develop in the lives of
the teacher and her students as they
work towards their goal of putting on
a recital in front of a real audience.
Tickets are just $15, and you can
get them by calling 727-322-0316
for will-call tickets, or at the door
before curtain (cash or checks only).
Curtain times: 8 p.m. on Thursday,
Friday and Saturday and 2 p.m. on
Sunday. The Hickman Theater is
located on Beach Blvd. at 26th Ave.
S., in Gulfport. There will be plenty
of free parking too.

Dog walking manners
Dear Editor: Gulfport is known
to be filled with dog loving people.
What isn't known is that people who
love and care for their dogs have
not learned and therefore have not
taught their dogs good public walking
For example, on Thursday, March
20, while walking on Beach Blvd.
with my partner and our four year old
Doberman Pinscher, a man jogging
with his small dog steadily came
toward us. He had in ear buds and
seemed oblivious to his surroundings
or his dog or other pedestrians. His
small dog was on an extended leash
running several feet ahead of him.
Seeing the situation, I drew our dog
close to my side, stepped into the
grass, stopping to allow them to pass
The jogger did not realize that his
small dog aggressively approached
us by growling, barking and nipping
at our Doberman's face until it was
too late. Our "cornered" threatened
dog responded by nipping back and
injured the small dog. It was at this
time that the jogger became engaged.
His response was hostile, verbally
obscene, abusive and threatening.
He felt that our Doberman was a
dangerous animal that required a
muzzle during walks. The police were
calledbut after a considerable amount
of time had passed and no officer, we
walked to our house a few blocks
away. The jogger and his injured
dog followed behind us still using

profanity and obscenities. Finally,
he walked away. He has continued
though to harass us through writing.
He feels that it is his duty to warn
the community/county about the
necessity of our dog being muzzled.
We've been Gulfport homeowners for
thirteen years and have always had a
dog for a family pet. We understand
how important and special it is to
have a dog. We also understand
the heartache when the dog is sick,
injured or passes away. We further
understand that sometimes there is
dog profiling due to its breed, size,
City codes indicate that pets are
to be under the control of its owner
at all times. Dog trainers teach that
dogs walked for exercise be on a 4 to
6 foot leash and a quick pace can be
used. With this length of leash the
owner could quickly intervene, when
necessary, by pulling on the leash to
bring the dog close in, making the
dog aware of its owner's closeness
and voice commands. A dog should
NOT be at the end of an extended
leash whereby the owner's arm is
straight out in front of them since
it makes correction difficult, voice

Farm, from front page
Sweetwater Organic Community
Farm announces the launch of a new
day camp program for children ages
9-11. Tampa Bay area families may
now begin signing up their children
for weekly summer sessions,
which run from June 2-August
22, 2014. Farm camp focuses on
teaching campers about agricultural
sustainability, wise use and reuse of
natural resources, growing organic
gardens from seed, and healthy
living. Sweetwater's Farm Camp
utilizes both Next Generation
Sunshine State Standards in earth
sciences and curricula from Project
WILD to create an experience that is
highly educational and interactive.
At its core, Sweetwater's vision
is to promote fresh, locally grown
food and foster social and ecological
responsibility. Sweetwater's farm
camp is the first of its kind in the state
of Florida and is designed around the
integration of Science, Technology,
Engineering, and Mathematics (or
STEM subjects). Campers will have
a host of diverse topics and activities
to explore that require them to
use these subjects in concrete and
tangible ways. A prominent feature
of the program focuses specifically on
the impact of agricultural systems to
human health, as campers will learn
about their nutritional needs and
how to grow and preserve food for a
healthy diet.
Other activities at farm camp
include: wildlife hikes, where campers
learn about Florida's indigenous and
invasive species, digital microscope

studies of local water sources and
plant cells, upcycled art projects,
games focused on environmental
interconnectivity, a scavenger hunt
for nutritious foods, a salsa party,
and a cooking/canning lesson.
Families interested in signing up
for Sweetwater's farm camp may
contact our Education Program
Director, Christopher Hawthorne,

ottoIoroscope Guide

By Holiday Mathis
Aries is the sign of zesty freshness,
clean beginnings and starting off
with a "bang." So when the moon
is new in this gleaming realm, it's
an opportunity to seize. Is there
something you wanted to do but were
afraid that your past experiences and/
or mistakes would be a problem? Go
for it anyway. There's a good chance
the past will be a non-issue. This is
the blank page you've been waiting
for. Write on it!
ARIES (March 21-April 19). You'll
be following leads for both business
and pleasure this week. Be willing
to bail on the lead that seems like a
dud so you'll be free to move on better
opportunities. How will you know a
good lead? If you think a person is
willing to make a specific commitment
of time, intention and energy, it's a
good lead.
TAURUS (April 2 I-.iy 20). If you
doubt that your happiness is crucial
in the quest for world peace, consider
that maybe the seeds of negativity
inside you are also the root of the
world's problems. They will dissolve
when you turn compassion and
forgiveness inward. Bonus: Because
of this act, the world will become a
better place.
GEMINI Ol.,y 21-June 21). Good
fortune depends on your ability to see
things from a long-term perspective.
You'll make the best choices from a
detached mindset. Can't get there?
Imagine the eco-technic societies and
trans-human life that will exist in the
22nd century. Then, when you return
to the present, you'll do the right
CANCER (June 22-July 22). People
who host parties know that it can
be hard to stop doing things for the
guests and simply enjoy being with
them. Similarly, during this busy
week, you'll have to consciously
remember to at some point stop
responding and serving so you can
take part in mutually fulfilling playful
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Don't worry.
You're not being overly shallow or
materialistic by wanting to get your
hands on the next big thing. The
brain of a human is wired to seek


novelty. Just remember that the next
big thing is not always something you
can buy. This week it will be a new
emotional experience born out of a
soulful connection.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You'll
be inspired to set aside your notion
of who you want a person to be while
you watch for clues about who he or
she really is. When you understand
the true nature of the people in your
life, you will make better predictions,
set more reasonable expectations and
enjoy truly meaningful interactions.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). While
everyone is chasing love and money,
your focus is on an interest that won't
likely lead to massive popularity
or mountains of cash, and yet it
compels you forward. Your curiosity
is matched by your drive to do what it
takes to find out more. Following the
interest leads to the love and money
you're not chasing.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21).
You'll field invitations. Don't be shy
about declining if that's how you
feel. You're not obligated to provide
an explanation, either, although
you should be warned that there's
something so enticing about having
your own secret reasons for doing
what you do that you're sure to get
follow-up invites.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21).
It seems that every time you respond
to the word "free," you wind up
reaching for your pocketbook. Also,
the "discounts" you use seem to lead to
spending money on things you weren't
planning to buy. To avoid this very
common dynamic, set clear financial
goals and firmly stick to them.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19).
Principles of business will apply
to your personal life. For instance,
scarcity creates demand. If your time
and attention are readily available,
people will take them for granted and
won't work very hard for your focus.
If something or someone else gets
your focus, suddenly the others feel
deprived and crave your time.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). It may
feel as though others are given the
chance to pursue their dreams while
you're duty-bound to do approximately
the same thing you did last week.

Take heart. Your character is being
molded in such a way that when you
do have the right opportunity, you'll
make quick work of it and find nearly
immediate success.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). In
business, you are at the mercy of the
market, and the verdict isn't always
nice. Expanding your personal life
requires a similar risk, only the
potential for emotional pain is even
greater. The potential for joy is
greater, too. Your cosmic bonus this
week is resilience. With your buoyant
attitude, you're sure to win.
This Week's Birthdays: You will
find aversion of something you wanted
as a young child that is appropriate to
your current lifestyle. A strong leader
will help you gain the skills you need
to be confident and make money. A
cheerleader who follows and supports
you will be equally crucial to your
success. If you don't have a team you
trust, go looking for one in lucky April.
May and July are your best times for
travel, research and finding clients
and jobs. You'll make sweet romantic
promises in July and October.

Program. On March 16 it was a
beautiful day as players came to the
Polynesian Putter on St. Pete Beach
to try their luck of the Irish on the
18-hole mini-golf course. A number
of hole-in-ones were scored. It takes
many hands to make a successful
event and it turned out to be just
that. Thanks to all the volunteers
and people who donated to this event.
Thank you also to the following local

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

'"T 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

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.

"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.

Gut Feelings
Oxytocin is a hormone for the heart.
Among its functions, it encourages
social bonding by creating warm
and fuzzy feelings among mating
mammals, including humans. It's
been dubbed "the love drug." In
synthesized form, it's sometimes used
to ease social inhibitions and mood
disorders, and promote maternal
bonding. (It induces labor, too, but
that's a different story.)

What's good for the "heart" may also
be good for irritable bowels.
Australian researchers have
developed a version of oxytocin they
say appears to alleviate abdominal
pain. Ordinary oxytocin is quickly
destroyed by the digestive tract, but
the Australian version is hardier.
In the bowels, says Paul Alewood of
the University of Queensland, the
revamped oxytocin seems to soothe
irritated nerve receptors but leaves
healthy tissue alone, reducing the
chances of adverse side effects.

Visit the Book Shop
Years ago there was a very
active Friends group at the
Gulfport Library. When it
disbanded for lack of interest,
a dusty little collection of
much-used books remained
on sale without publicity or .
promotion. In 2011 the library
support group was reorganized
and renamed The Circle of
Friends. In order to achieve its
mission to provide programs
and acquisitions, members
began looking for ways to A visitor browses the Circle of Friends book shop,
raise funds. First came a big which is just to the left of the Gulfport Library
sale of donated books, which entrance.
was a great success. Encouraged, two volunteers, Marilyn Field and Phyllis
Rosenblum, began working on the development of a new book shop, beginning
with volumes leftover from the sale.
Together they've made such a success of the project that over the last year
the shop has earned almost $500 a month to contribute to services for library
patrons and special projects such as the lovely new Reading Garden. Marilyn
spends hours there every week and does the bookkeeping and banking, sales
tax and financial reports besides. Phyllis is away for the summers, but puts
in plenty of time from November through May, and "loves every minute of
it." They have a few helpers to work with sorting and stocking the shelves,
especially when a large donation comes in. The library staff pitches in as well,
handling the money and directing customers to the shop shelves. Librarians
also review books that Marilyn and Phyllis have set aside as possibly worthy
of becoming part of the collection. Of course, there's always more work to do
than hands available, so they'd be happy to hear from others who might like
to help.

Ditch the Water Bottle
The trouble with bottled water,
experts say, is not the water. It's the
plastic bottles the water comes in
that are potentially harmful to our
health and environment.
The folks at the Mayo Clinic say
we need to be concerned about BPA,
often used in containers that store
food and beverages, such as water
bottles. Exposure to BPA, they say,
is a concern because of possible
health effects on the brain, behavior
and prostate gland of fetuses, infants
and children. The FDA suggests that
very low-level exposure to BPA is
safe, however, the agency is engaged
in ongoing research.
Health issues are one thing, but the
effect on the environment is another.
According to the EPA, in 2010, the
U.S. generated 31 million tons of
plastic waste. This is becoming such
a problem that Concord, Mass.,
recently became the first municipality
in the nation to ban the sale of single-
serving water bottles. San Francisco,
Calif., may implement one of the
strictest bottled water bans in the
country if its Board of Supervisors
approves a proposal to ban its sale on
public property.

And if health and environment
issues aren't enough to give us pause,
single-serve bottled water is not that
great for your wealth.
So what are the alternatives? Here
they are for your consideration:
Tap water. You're already paying
for it and, given the laws in the U.S.
that regulate safe drinking water,
what comes out of your kitchen tap
may be just dandy.
Refrigerator pitcher. If your tap
water, while safe, doesn't taste very
good, consider a simple filter pitcher
that you keep in the refrigerator. The

affordable and is quite attractive,

too. Take a look at the Brita water
filter pitcher (everydaycheapskate.
com/brita) as well.
Reverse osmosis. We've tested and
tried every kind of drinking water
option in our home and finally went
for a reverse osmosis system. This
is a system that we installed under
our kitchen sink and provides a
continuous supply of delicious water
to drink, to make ice and also use in
cooking. Given the cost of hauling
jugs and bottles of water out of stores
and then dealing with the empty
containers, we believe that our RO
system paid for itself in less than
a year. It's trouble-free and quite
Every day I fill my water bottle and
find that I drink a lot more water just

Prepare Now for
Hurricane Season
It is still a few months until the
start of the 2014 Atlantic hurricane
season, and now is the prime time
for residents to review their survival
plans. Activities such as outdoor
improvements and adding additional
bracing to an attic are easier to
accomplish before the summer heat
sets in.
Some key actions that can be taken
now include:
SRegister for special needs
evacuation assistance. Residents
with certain qualifying medical
conditions can apply for special
assistance in the event of a
hurricane evacuation. A simple
call to Pinellas County Emergency
Management at (727) 464-3800, the
Florida Department of Health in
Pinellas County at (727) 824-6900
or a local fire department can start
the process. Residents needing more
advanced medical assistance should
work with their physicians to ensure
their planning can be in place before
the storm winds begin to blow.
Check the envelope. The home's
envelope, to be exact. Are there
shutters for the windows? Is the roof
in good repair? Is there rot in soffits
or fascia? How is the caulk in the
windows and doors? These simple
repairs and improvements can make
a home more survivable and keep
water out in driving rains.
* Tend to trees. This is an excellent
time to check trees for broken, dead
or diseased limbs and have them
removed. If it has been a while since
the last time a tree was pruned, or if
the pruning has to take place on high
limbs, have a licensed tree trimmer
provide an estimate and a plan of
action. Trimming trees can be a
dangerous activity, and improperly
pruned trees tend to fare poorly in
high wind situations.
While these preparations are
essential for hurricane season, they
can also help residents get ready for
other hazards, including the summer

From the Desk of

Sheriff Bob Gualtie

Negotiator Response Team

When Pinellas County Sheriffs
Deputies respond to a call they
sometimes find themselves handling
a subject that does not want to be
cooperative. Subjects at times can
be verbally or physically aggressive,
threaten to harm themselves or others
and at times barricade themselves in
their current location. Deputies are
trained to handle these situations
to an extent but after a certain time
frame the negotiator response team is
called to de-escalate the situation.
The Negotiator Response Team
is made up of a team supervisor,
assistant team supervisor and two
teams of five members which include
a team leader. Each team also has an
alternate member. The teams serve
on an on-call shift that rotates every
two weeks. The Negotiator Response
Team is made up of certified law
enforcement deputies that work in
both the patrol and detention areas of
the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office.
Being part of the Negotiator
Response Team is in addition to the
daily positions each member of the
team may hold. Members of the team
hold a variety of different ranks and
titles to include Lieutenant, Sergeant,
School Resource Officer, Community
Police Officer, Detective and Public
Information Officer. The Negotiator
Response Team is also made up of a
diverse group of men and women of
various nationalities and ethnicities.
Pinellas Countyis a diverse community
of citizens and visitors. This team of
negotiators is able to relate to a large
variety of people which helps in an
array of scenarios.
The Negotiator Response Team
is called on to respond to hostage
situations, armed subjects, barricaded
subjects and suicidal subjects in

crisis, just to name a few. There are
many reasons that people may not
want to come out from where they
have barricaded themselves and it is
the task of the negotiator response
team to talk with them and listen. At
times, having a negotiator speak with
the subject for an extended period of
time is the safest and most effective
way of solving the current situation
at hand. For the Negotiator Response
Team, time is on their side and they
are on hand to speak with the subject
and go through the ups and downs the
subject is currently going through.
Members of the Negotiator Response
Team are able to join the team after
period. There is an interview process
to be selected when there is an opening
on the team. Strong team leadership
and crisis and negotiator schooling
are two areas that are strongly looked
at when applicants apply to join the
team. Having these types of training
and skills prior to joining the group is
very beneficial. Members of the team
train together eight hours each month
in various locations. They train using
various role playing scenarios to
ensure they are ready for anything
that could potentially arise when
they are called to an actual scene.
The team also trains with other
areas of the Pinellas County Sheriffs
Office such as the SWAT team, the
Pinellas County Jail and the County
At times, citizens of Pinellas County
only see the deputies on the front line
of the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office.
The Negotiator Response Team is a
prime example of the men and women
that work diligently behind the crime
scene tape that help us lead the way
to a safer Pinellas.

Gya met ah' Oh my mind
a b o By Bill Northrop

Letting the U.N.
Control the Internet
Turkey just tried to close down
Twitter, China wrestles to close off
the Internet for unapproved users,
Russia does the same, and Venezuela
doesn't like what it's hearing and
seeing on the Internet. At the
United Nations, the International
Telecommunication Union voted
85 to 55 to approve a new treaty,
to go into effect next year, that
would allow governments to close
off citizens to the global Internet.
And that's the agency likely to be
controlling entrance to the Internet
under an Obama administration
decision to relinquish control of the
Internet in favor of global control.
Until now, the Internet, developed
by the U.S. military, has been
under the control of the U.S. which
guarantees Internet freedom. One
critic of the Obama administration
move compared it to the U.S. Navy's
giving up policing of the sea lanes.
Instead, flow of global information
will be subject to the whims of
authoritarian governments. Right
now, people all over the world have
multiple paths to communicate with
each other all tied into the Internet:
email, Twitter, Facebook, YouTube,
flickr, snap chat, instagram, tumblr,
Here's the way it works: the U.S.
government oversees the Internet
Corporation for Assigned Names
and Numbers. That entity issues

domain names and Web addresses.
That is direct control of access to
the Internet. Icann is a separate,
non-profit agency under contract
with the U.S. government and
established by the U.S. Its role
now, under U.S. supervision, is to
provide the broadest access to the
greatest number of people globally.
This is the world's most powerful
government not only advocating,
but promoting free speech and the
free flow of ideas. That's not always
popular, but it's right.
To be certain, the U.S. is
not the only user of the Internet
nor its biggest user. China is the
latter. Nearly every country in the
world, if not every, has Internet
access. That's part of the rationale
for giving broader control. Some of
those countries have also complained
that the U.S. spy activities on their
governments through our National
Security Agency justifies a broader
control of the Internet. Read that
"restriction." Not only that, but
officials of Icann have shown support
for such international control.
What international control will
mean besides restrictions, denials
and controls of people and entities
not politically popular, is also loss of
individual anonymity (essential to
those critical of their governments)
and, of course, a tax on Internet
companies such as Google and
Facebook. That means fees to users.
We've already dropped our
space shuttle program and are

now dependent upon Russia for
transportation to and from the
International Space Station.
Perhaps we should also share with
the world our natural resources
such as gas, coal and oil and let the
world control their exploration, cost,
benefits, and distribution. Google, in
2012, organized an on-line petition
opposing authority of the U.N.'s
ITU, declaring that a free and open
world depends on a free and open
web." It got three million sign-ups.
Interestingly, a former Obama
aide, Andrew McLaughlin, proposed
abolishing the ITU which he called:
"the chosen vehicle for regimes for
whom the free and open Internet is
seen as an existential threat." And
Congress unanimously opposed
any U.N. control over the Internet.
They are both right. Apparently,
the Obama administration doesn't

You & THE


By Robert J. Myers, Esq.
What is a
Guardianship? Part 1
A guardianship is a formal legal
proceeding in which another party
has control over the legal rights of a
person who is determined by a Court
to be incapable of handling his/her
own affairs. The filing of a Petition
To Determine Capacity is the first
step in establishing a guardianship.
Any adult is authorized to file with
the Court a Petition To Determine
Capacity. The alleged incapacitated
person is called the ward. The
proposed party who will take care of
the ward is called the guardian.
After the Court receives a Petition
To Determine Capacity, a committee
of two (2) professionals, usually
medical doctors, and a third person
is appointed by the Court to question


and examine the proposed ward and
then report its findings for the Court's
review. In the event an examining
Committee determines that an
alleged ward is not incapacitated in
any manner, the Court will dismiss
the Petition To Determine Incapacity
and the guardianship proceeding
is terminated at this time. If the
examining Committee determines
that an alleged ward is incapacitated
in some way, an Incapacity Hearing
will be scheduled with the Court
to determine the extent of the
ward's incapacity. Attorneys for
the petitioner and the proposed
guardian will normally attend this
Incapacity Hearing as well as a
Court appointed attorney for the
ward. Generally, a guardian will be
appointed upon the conclusion of the
Incapacity Hearing.
If a guardian is determined by
the Court to be necessary for the
protection of a ward's property or
person, the guardian has authority
to use the ward's property for the
ward's support. It is necessary for
a guardian to fully inventory the
ward's property and file detailed
accounting to the Court on a yearly

Where are My Manners?
Guest Candy Columnist: Calypso
I had pretty big paws to fill when I
met my human. Maybe you know her
-her name's Cathy and I understand
she's kind of mouthy and opinionated.
Her last dog was a Dalmatian. Some
of you may remember Madison,
affectionately called "Mad Dog."
She was, apparently, a wonderful
companion, but she had... well, she
had some issues. She was an orphan,
and later, the adopted child of a
divorce. She grew cranky in her old
age, which, to your two-leggedreaders
out there, means leash-aggressive
and food-aggressive. Cathy was the
alpha dog, but Mad Dog ranked a
close second.
Mad Dog didn't go to dog parks
much; she attacked another dog
when it came too close to Cathy.
Cathy would sneak her down to the
non-dog beaches at Fort DeSoto.
Mad Dog stopped going to Art Walks,
too, heading downtown only when it
wasn't busy, and even then not on a
leash. She was perfect under voice
command, but on a leash she was
That probably explains why, when
I entered the picture, Cathy was a
little strict. And by "a little" I mean a
lot. She would squirt me with water
when we went for bike rides and I
barked at other cyclists. And man,
if you know me, you know I love to
bark. I mean, the Twilight Bark is

my favorite thing; it doesn't even
need to be twilight. Cathy also keeps
me on a short leash when we go
somewhere crowded (and how lucky
was Mad Dog to live in Gulfport
when things weren't always crowded
downtown, but that's another column
altogether). Worse, sometimes she
picks me up and carries me, like I'm
a baby. Or a Yorkie.
The thing is, it's so unfair. Other
dogs get to do whatever they want
downtown. I've seen them. They can
wrap their leashes around people's
legs, or stretch across the sidewalk.
I mean, yes, people trip, but still, it
must be nice to have all that freedom.
And dogs are free to be dogs, you
know? I mean, sure, sometimes
that results in things like people
getting bit when they try to break
up a dog fight, or certain dogs having
"reputations" and apparently that's
why none of us can go into the library
anymore, but wow... I wish I could do
whatever I wanted, consequences be
Of course, I'm pretty lucky, as far
as dogs go. Cathy and El Cap have
taken me on a 5,000-mile, cross-
Florida journey in a camper. We

Cap's mother even bought me a life
jacket: pink with polka dots. I go
pretty much everywhere and yes, I
sleep on the bed even though I have
three of my own. I also lick the bowls
before they go in the dishwasher,
but please don't tell El Cap. Gulfport
Bikes reinforced what Cathy calls my
"Wizard of Oz" wicker bike basket so
I can ride bikes with them. We've
been up and down the Pinellas Trail
and yes, I barked my fool head off
the whole way. I'm allowed to Tweet,
and I have my own Facebook page.
I've eaten a snake skin, get to go to
Gulfport Elementary where kids
read to me and pet me and let me
lick their hands, and I sometimes
even get to race through tunnels and
almost catch rats. I am a lucky dog.
Even so, sometimes I just want to
chill, you know? When downtown
gets crowded, I don't want to be
there, because there are way too

many people for my tastes. This is
one of the few times I don't mind
her carrying me instead of letting
me explore. When it's that crowded
downtown, it's no fun for me, and I
can't imagine it's much better for the
people trying not to step on me or get
tangled in my leash.
The other day I overheard something
that chilled me to my little puppy
bones. Cathy was talking to a friend
of hers who said she and some of
her friends from Clearwater came
downtown for ArtWalk, and the
dogs were everywhere. Cool, right?
Well, this lady didn't think it was so
wonderful, even though she's always
been super nice to me and seems
like she loves dogs. She was talking
about how people brought their dogs
downtown and then failed to pay
attention to how they behaved. That
seems pretty cool, I thought, but then
I heard something else: that these
visitors said they wouldn't be back to
an ArtWalk because it was too hard
to navigate the leashes.
That's when I realized that
sometimes I get left at home not
just because it's not fun for me at
a crowded ArtWalk, but because I
really shouldn't be there. I realize I
have a right to be there, of course -
I'm lucky I live in the dog-friendliest
town in the world but I was
forgetting that rights come with
responsibilities. I guess that means I
have a responsibility not to go places
where my leash could be a hazard, or
that I have a responsibility to behave
myself really, really well when I'm
eating at a local restaurant.
Of course, I'm a dog. So ultimately,
it's Cathy's job to make sure I
behave well enough to be welcome
downtown. Do me a favor, guys?
I'm lousy at communicating with
her. Could you ask your humans to
tell her? Because, well, you know...
she's sweet, but she's human, and
sometimes she doesn't think about
these things.
Thanks. Oh, and seriously, don't
mention the "licking dishes" thing.
That can just be our secret.
