Vacation Rental or Code Violation?

By Cathy Salustri
Seventeen property
owners received a letter
from Gulfport's Community
Development telling them
their practice of renting
their homes for short-term
rentals (less than one month)
violates city code 22-4.02.
This was not an agenda item
at Tuesday evening's council
meeting, but heard during
public comment.
Of the 17 letters sent, not
every property owner spoke
or attended the meeting. Four
Gulfport residents received a
letter. Five of the recipients
live in St. Petersburg; one,

Redington Shores; one,
Orlando; one, Georgia; two,
Texas; one, Vermont; one,
Pennsylvania; and one,
Gulfport only allows private
home rentals for less than a
month a time three times in a
12-month period.
Gulfport's community
enforcement officer, Bruce
Earling, said he did not know
the name of the complainant
who came into the Community
Development department
and told Earling about a web
site,, where home
owners advertise vacation
rentals. Earling went on the

web site and searched for
Gulfport, finding 17 homes in
violation of city code. He sent
those property owners notices
of violation on April 9th.
"In their neighborhood, they
saw the cars coming and
going," said Earling of how
neighbors became suspicious
about the rental properties.
"They were comparing the
license tags of all the vehicles
coming and going."
Please see "Overheard at
Gulfport City Council" in this
issue of the Gabber to hear
what the property owners,
council, and city staff had to

Capital Changes Include Paving
Beach Lot, Sanibel Lights
Along with a new suggested budget, Gulfport city staff
presented suggestions for capital improvements, or projects
that incur one-time expenses to the city.
"What you're seeing," City Manager Jim O'Reilly told
council, "is some very aggressive programming."
Such projects include paving the beach parking lot,
currently comprised of packed shell.
"There's no percolation there at all; you might get 10% at
the most," Don Sopak said of current lot's ability to absorb
contaminants before they flowed into Boca Ciega Bay. "It
runs through the grass and gets a ... bit of treatment before
it gets out there."
The pavement will not offer more opportunities to prevent
contaminating Boca Ciega Bay.

Faces of Gulfport's Springfest

Saturday with the 20th annual

"That's the ephemeral nature
of the eggs, my friends!" Youth
Librarian Cailey Klassen called
as she dropped a possibly-prop-
erly-protected egg at Monday's
Science Club. "They break!"
For the eggs-periment,
participants attempted to
protect raw eggs with a variety
of cushion-y media, such as
bubble wrap and sponges.

Magistrate Continues
in Gulfport
Gulfport City Council voted to use
a special magistrate to hear code
enforcement-related cases. The city
has used, and voted to continue to
use, Jim Thaler to hear these cases.
Thaler, a lawyer, charges $150 an
hour for his services.
If the city opted to discontinue using
a special magistrate, such cases
would go to the circuit court.
Since adopting the process of a
special magistrate, Community
Development Director Fred Metcalf
estimates Thaler has heard
"approximately 10" cases.

Police Blotter
Gulfport police responded to the
2800 block of 58th Street on the
morning of April 7th after a resident
reported that sometime overnight
someone had destroyed a birdbath,
glass table, flower pots and hose in
the front yard. Residents also told
Officer Novak that they received a
letter containing a dead lizard a few
weeks ago, and a note tucked into

Keeping Gulfport in
Code Compliance
Code Enforcement activities have
moved to Section Five of the city,
also known as the Marina District.
This comprises the southeast portion
of Gulfport and generally extends
south from 26th Ave. S. to the water
and east from 49th Street to the city
Gulfport handled 241 code
enforcement cases in March; year-
to-date, the city has handled 1109.
Of these, Gulfport had 12 citizen
complaints in March and 88 so far
this year, which means 7.9% of the
code enforcement cases come from
citizen complaint.
Because Gulfport has one inspector
who focuses on one section at a time,

the city depends on residents to call
in violations when they see them.
"We will inspect within one
working day of a complaint to verify
any violation," the community
development section of the weekly
city manager's report promises.
If the inspector is unavailable, leave
as detailed a message as possible
to help them find the violation.
Complaints can be anonymous, but
residents seeking follow-up should
leave contact information, which
means the complaint is no longer

activities documents for more

Beauty is in the Eye...
Dear Editor: This is in response
to the latest "Hard Candy" article in
the Gabber (April 10, 2014 edition).
Cathy S. is one of my favorite Gabber
writers. However I feel I need to
comment on her opinion that in
order to be beautiful we should pave
the alleys and beach front parking
I am landscape painter andfindlots
of material for light filled, color filled
paintings in the beach "art district"
area of town. I love the lumpy old
alleys and the sand and shell parking
lots visually but of great importance
to us as well should be concerns over
flooding. I have to say that not only
do I consider paving ugly and hot,
I also realize that paving makes it
impossible for nature to right itself
properly. And in regard to the alleys,
the consideration here is not only
better water absorption but also,
down here by the beach the lots tend
to be smaller and the alleys become
a good place for kids to ride bikes,
dogs to be walked and neighbors to
congregate. A nicely paved or leveled
alley can be a tempting "speedway"
for cars and motorcycles going too
fast. Alleys now contain natural
speed bumps in the right places.
Please consider the idea that people
come to Gulfport FROM neatly
manicured generic locations to enjoy
a town that has become popular
because it is not. It is unique. This
sense of place visitors find appealing
has developed over years of residents
loving this town for what it is as it
Having said this I realize that
cleaning up and picking up rubbish
all over Gulfport should be high
on everybody's priority list. The
alleys or yards should never be

dumping grounds for old couches
and mattresses and all other kinds
of hideous looking refuse. Nothing
is more off putting to visitors or
residents than neglect. I want to
be proud of Gulfport and the way I
and my neighbors care for our city.
However, if you look closely at this
situation you may see there is a fine
line between respecting our home
and destroying it with quick "fixes"
like blacktop. Beauty is in the eye of
the beholder.

Pros of Golf Carts
Dear Editor: I see golf carts as a
way to provide more mobility for our
citizens. Maybe some of our people
cannot drive a car anymore but have
the desire and need to shop, keep
medical appointments and take
advantage of all the amenities our
great city offers.
All golf carts should be street safe
and registered with the Gulfport
Police Department with a current
driver's license. For better safety
I suggest a traffic light at 55th St.
S. (Beach Boulevard) and 22nd Ave.
S. (Lakeview) connecting to ('I in .-i
Park, serving the walkers, bikers,
school children as well as golf carts
and walking the dogs.
This would create more safety
between the traffic lights at 49th St.
S., 52nd St. S. and 58th St. S. Car
drivers would not be able to speed
through this area. Golf carts do not
take up a full parking space and
would save on gas. The carts should
be limited to day time use.

work of Tierra Verde painter Gary
Mellenbruch during its next "Meet
the Artists" event on Saturday, April
19th, from 6 p.m. until 10 p.m. at
3129 Beach Blvd. S. The featured

as Gulfport's own Williams Pier,

Last Weekend for
"Stepping Out"
If you haven't seen the Gulfport
Community Players' production of
"Stepping Out," at the Hickman
Theater, you still have this weekend
left to do so. It will close on April
20th, after a very successful run at
the Hickman. The audiences who
have already attended have enjoyed
every minute of this lively play.
Under Richard Rosen's direction,
Rose Mallare's choreography, and
the play's excellent cast, the play
has become alive! If you like to
watch great tap dancing to music of
yesteryear, and enjoy a great story to
boot, this is your cup of tea!
Because of the adult situations and
language used in the play, the Players
recommend it for ages 18 and over.
Some, but very few tickets are
still available for the Thursday,
Friday and Saturday's 8 p.m. shows.
However, this coming Sunday's
2 p.m. performance has already sold
out. The Players strongly urge people
who want to attend any of these
other performances to avoid trying
to get their tickets the night of the

--easure js/and Last Show of the Season
\By Luba Robinson
Don't miss the last Treasure Island Community
Center show for the Art Guild Winter/Spring season,
featuring award winning artists Danee Kinzel, Bruce
Kotchey, Stan Krupa, Helen Mullins, and Patricia
Trahey, whose work will be on display through
May 21st.
Florida native Kinzel with pastels and a passion for "typical Florida landscapes"
gives us luminous works of art, where "The Rivers' Edge" pulls the viewer to a
place that transcends reality. Where swaying palms in "Standing Water" and
"Golden Afternoon" are beached against delicate cumulous skies and Maine
embraces "Springtime in Gorman Park".
Emerging from the "joy of challenges" while working with a variety of media
and subject matter, art instructor Kotchey, with a masterful application of
colored pencils shows a vibrant "Stone Walled". Pen and ink exhibits a striking
"Snowcat". A flowing "Season Change" and contemporary "Star Cluster" are
fine examples of mixed media.
"Always in love with life" eclectic artist Krupa, whose paintings hang in
collections across the country, dazzles the viewer with a sampling of acrylic
and collage abstracts. "Snowbirds" and "Construction" achieve balance in
color, texture, and form. A stunning "Sunset" celebrates days' end and linear
forms in "Quiet Vision" successfully suggest a placid, collected pace.
Experience the skilled artistry of Mullins as she tells her stories in oils with
a keen sensitivity to contrasting tones and composition in "Gulfport Garage",
"Gulfport Market Day", and a 1920's era H.C. Smith grocery store in "Heritage
Village". An encore of her lush palette gives us a stoic "Pelican" waiting for
leftovers from a neighboring bait house.
Accomplished oil painter Trahey is inspired to "put the viewer in a place of
pure joy" with vivid hues, as seen in blues legend "Me and Lucille, BB King"
and "After the Dance", a striking portrait, posed to pull your gaze into a sense
of wonderment. Experience a unique "Sunset on the Gulf' through a glass of
wine. An endearing moment in IN 1y Buddy" permeates the senses.
The Treasure Island Community center is located on 106th Ave., just east of
Gulf Blvd. Call 727-", 17-4575 for hours of operation.

at least once a year.

City of Gulfport: Bagged Leaves Pickup
Q: What is the process for pick-up of bagged leaves in areas that are ser-
viced by the automated garbage pick up? Should the bagged leaves be put
in trash cans or will they be picked up separately?
A: The City of Gulfport asks that you bag your leaves but do not place
them in the garbage cans; call 727-893-1089 for free bagged leaf pickup.
"All leaves should be bagged so they may be picked up separately from the
automated or rear-loading sanitation routes," says Public Works Director
Don Sopak.

ottoIoroscope Guide

By Holiday Mathis
It's been said that nature hates a
vacuum, but in the first full week of
the 2014 Taurus sun, most people
would rather feel the sucking void of
a vacuum than replace it with boring,
ordinary things. There's much we
could add to our lives, and most people
will be as lucky as they are discerning.
The Taurus sun favors quality over
quantity. Pick and choose. Hold out
as long as it takes for something (or
someone) truly special.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Hearts
get broken, and they miraculously
still work. In fact, broken hearts work
better than hearts that have never
been broken, because they operate on
a full range of feeling that unbroken
hearts can't fathom. You're wiser
because of all you've been through,
and this week your love will help heal
someone in need.
TAURUS (April 21-.iLvy 20). Some
questions will never be answered,
but that doesn't mean they shouldn't
be asked. So go ahead and voice
your curiosity. Maybe illuminating
knowledge on the subject will be
shared three generations from now, or
maybe never. But you'll make people
think, and that's what matters this
GEMINI 11.iy 21-June 21). You've
been feeling like there aren't enough
available hours to accommodate all
you want to do. You may even decide
to alter your nightly routine in favor
of waking up much earlier, which is
a fine way to elongate the day. As
you experiment to harmonize your
relationship with time, things will
improve for you this week.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). It'd be
nice if you had a strong support system
for this week's difficult challenge, but
instead you have a vision. For now,
that will be almost as good. It will
take a while for the others to see what
you see. Keep painting it for them,
and eventually they'll catch on. Until
then, hold on to hope and believe in
your imagination.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Ever
gracious, you also sense when the
gift a person offers you comes with
so much expectation that it's actually
more of a burden than a blessing.

This week your independent spirit is
strong, so don't accept the kinds of
gifts that will slow you down or cause
you to have to interact in a way that
feels false to you.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Positive
self-talk is much easier to achieve
when the other talk around you is also
positive. This is just one more reason
to take a break from the negative
people in your life. Getting distance
might seem more difficult than it
really is. All you have to do is make
an excuse and walk in the opposite
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). It is
natural to accept the familiar parts
of life without question. But you have
reason to pose questions anyhow.
Your mind is curious and alert, and
you have an incentive to find a better
way to do things. You will be able to
clearly and objectively see what others
are unable to discern. This is the start
of something new.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Easy-
going -- that's what works for you.
You have standards, but you don't
rigidly enforce them at all times. Why
be overly critical of other people's
methods? You wouldn't want them
to focus on yours in that way. In your
book, affording yourself and others
leeway in life is part of being an all-
around cool person.
21). There's a deal in the making.
Beforehand, stay fully aware of the
details and all you're getting into. Ask
questions. Be vigilant. You have to get
it right in the beginning, or there is no
point to doing the deal at all. There's
little you will be able to change after
the fact, and so once it's done, relax.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19).
Relationships will stretch and shift
this week. Because this is happening
and can't be helped, your best move
is to embrace it. Anyway, it wouldn't
benefit you to try to stop change -- it's
essential in any good relationship.
The road that never turns seems very
long indeed.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). When
you don't like the position you're in,
try repose, which is quite literally a
repositioning. Sure, it's a passive and
restful repositioning, but when you

come out of it, you'll find a completely
new stance -- possibly the one that will
help you to be effective and successful
in your chosen endeavor.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Ideally,
your work would suddenly become
exciting with no help from you. Short
of that stroke of luck, you could try
facing your task with the mind of
a philosopher or the experimental
mood of a scientist. Suddenly, what
seemed dead or dull will spring to
life. Creativity, money and other good
things will follow.
This Week's Birthdays: You don't
have to move mountains to find success
this year. You'll do it the smart and
easy way: You'll move yourself and
projects to a place where the mountain
is no longer in the way. Your savvy
dealings start this month, and you'll
keep making new arrangements all
the way into July. May brings work,
money and other resources. You'll
love focusing on your family and
personal life in June, which is one of
your most relaxing months in a long
time. Ancient history will be revisited
in August.

Excerpts heard at the April 15, 2014

Gulfport City Council Meeting

Public Comment & Council Quotes

Regarding the notices
of violation for using
private homes as
vacation rentals (see
article on front page):

"My client received a
notice of violation...
We'd ask that you abate
this at this time...have
a workshop, have the
community come in." -
Attorney Deborah Martohue,
representing a property

"The vacationers who
have rented my home treat
it with absolute respect."
- Tim Swanson, reading for
Dr. Pollock, who "couldn't be
here because of Passover."

"Clear and consistent
enforcement would
have prevented the
whole problem...because
current and already-
booked tenants exist, I
don't believe they should
be punished because of
the acts of others... Maybe
we should be looking at
putting [a] freeze on future
bookings... We need short-
term rentals as a beach
city." Bob Newcomb,
Executive Director of the
Gulfport Area Chamber of

"Maybe we can stay this
enforcement for several
months until we've had
a chance to think about
this." Richard Ham, who
asked council to act during
the Tuesday night meeting
to allow property owners to
continue renting properties
as short-term lodging

"I don't understand, if
this is an ordinance...
why is it being enforced
today and nothing prior
to day?"- Barbara Starke

"Youjust don'tunderstand
the quality of people
you're getting here...
If we take away these
vacation rentals Gulfport
is going back to the biker
community where nobody
brings money to this
town anymore." Nancy

"It is self-enforcing in
a sense, but you as a
vacation owner, you have
to be really careful about
who you rent to [and] so
far it's been spectacular...
I'd really like you guys
to consider abating for
a while until we can
come up with something
because we really do want
to obey the law." Rick

"This wasn't a change to
our ordinance that was
made to our ordinance
recently. This was an
ordinance that was
passed in '93, so it's been
established for a long
time. And the reason that
the state statute doesn't
pre-empt that is because
if you hadpassed it before
June 1st of 2011, then
you were allowed to keep
it. There's 44 cities in
Florida that were allowed
to keep theirs when they
took home rule away...
Before anyone goes away
thinking that we sat in
a dark room somewhere
and made this up last
week and decided to
start punishing people,
this was a long-standing
ordinance that was
already on the books."-
Mayor Sam Henderson

"There are two sides to
this. Because it's never a
problem until you're the
neighbor of the problem.

And I know that most
people are respectful...
but those complaints
on the web site because
[some people don't treat
the homes with respect]."
- Mayor Sam Henderson
"And I know that there's
a lot of really great stuff
going on with these
vacation rentals, and I
don't see any frat houses,
although I don't know
that there's a big enough
house outside of your
neighborhood to have a
frat house."- Vice Mayor/
Ward Two Councilwoman
Christine Brown, to the
Ward One Councilman
Dan Liedtke

"I agree with the mayor:
We should let you all go
and talk to the Community
Development department
and work out what
needs to happen to make
everybody in compliance,
and then let's move
forward." Vice Mayor/
Ward Two Councilwoman
Christine Brown

Overhead regarding
other council
meeting points:

"I'm very pleased to
announce and invite
council to the kickoff
to National Tourism
Week by this prestigious
organization at the
historic Gulfport
Casino on May 1st... Go
Team Gulfport!" Lori
Rosso, about the St. Pete/
Clearwater Convention and
Visitors Bureau (Florida's
Beach) unveiling of its
"Living Amplified" campaign
at the city's Casino

"You're missing this core
group of teenagers...
Where else is he going to
go?" Joanna Pheil, about

her son, who she says gets
kicked out of Gulfport's
skate park for being inside
on his bike on days other
than Sunday

"It just helps identify the
city... To me, it's a way of
identifying what the city
is."-WardFour Councilman
Michael Fridovich, about city
flags at every city building

"I do want to put forth the
condition of our streets...
I've seen almost every
corner of our city streets.
I kept a really tight log,
an excellent log, as far as
the residents who pointed
out certain streets and
conditions. It includes
alleys... Looking at the
$150,000 that's coming
from Penny From Pinellas,
that's not enough... I
want to put forth this as
a thoughtful dialogue...
what we can do to help
that department... It's the
quality four city... People
have to drive into our city
and we don't want them
looking at the condition of
our streets."- Ward Three
Councilwoman Yolanda
Roman, about one of her
budget priorities

"They pushed us back -
Mayor, how many times
havetheypushedus back?"
- City Manager Jim O'Reilly,
about Pinellas County's
level of responsiveness to

"It seems like that's all
we've got, is a couple of
crosswalks... It's time for
them to step up." Ward
One Councilmember Dan
Liedtke, about Pinellas
County and repaving
Gulfport Boulevard

JOYCE, "Mama
Kwas" and "Joycie
K" (nee Zalenski),
63, of Gulfport,
Florida entered
into eternal peace
on April 9, 2014. Although she
struggled with serious debilitating

merciful. Joyce had worked as an

years in several major law firms
in Philadelphia before moving to
Gulfport in 1999. In addition, she
had been co-owner of The Preliminary
Bar and Restaurant in the Fishtown
neighborhood of Philadelphia. She is
survived by her loving son Matthew
Anthony who after raising him as a
single Mom, and ensuring that he
graduated from Loyola University
New Orleans, made Joyce extremely
proud of being the European
Institutes Director of The Fund for
American Studies in Prague, Czech
Republic for the last nine years.
Survivors also include her sister G.
Sandy Bukowski, brother-in-law,
Buddy, nephews Jon-Christopher/
Jake (Roya) with great niece, Liberty
Grace; Zachary Scott (Lorena),
nephew Nick Williams and her best
friend in Gulfport, Susie Hintz.
She has already greeted her Mom,
Agnes Collar/Zalenski, her number
one best friend Carol Moegen, her
brother John (Ike) Williams, and her
nephew Raymond Williams as well
as many aunts, uncles, cousins and
friends. Her beloved cats, Molly,
JoePa, Harrie, Izzy, Angel, Leo, and
Kwasi will miss her terribly and are
searching for loving homes to share
with others some of the joy that they
brought to Joyce. Please contact her
son, Matt (267-206-0487) if you can
or know someone who will find them
a new home. A celebration of Joycie

K's life will be held on Saturday,

Good Friday Services
Include Song
St. Alban's Episcopal Church offers
three services this Good Friday,
April 18th. The traditional Good
Friday Office will take place at 12
noon. Stations of the Cross will
commence at 1:15 p.m.
Additionally, in the evening,
St. Alban's and St. Augustine's
Episcopal churches join at
St. Alban's at 6 p.m. to provide an
alternative Good Friday service
consisting entirely ofmusic, scripture
and prayers. This variation from the
traditional service will offer a more
familiar way for many people to get
in touch with Good Friday's truths.
With prayers and scripture
readings, this service is planned to
give worshippers the opportunity to
place themselves along side Jesus
during his sufferings and feel a
closer affinity to him by recognizing
the interior battles we fight almost
every day.
They will end the evening not on
a mournful note but with words of
trust, of hope, of faith. St. Alban's is

Road and 85th Ave. at 330 85th Ave.

SPoints On Pets

By Matthew Margolis
A Man Walks into
a Dog Park...
Two men were fighting at a bar. One
of them threw a shrimp cocktail and
yelled, "And that's just for -1. ,ri-.'-
That's a joke -- but it's only a
hairsbreadth away from describing
the real-life events that played out
at an Auburn, Calif., dog park earlier
this year.
On January 25, Officer James
Dalton responded to a call at the
local Auburn dog park and, after
interviewing several witnesses,
arrested 56-year-old David Cramer
for assault with a deadly weapon.
The deadly weapon was a Chuck
It. A Chuck It, for those who play
fetch the old-fashioned way, is a long
plastic ball-throwing device.
Cramer reportedly used his to
whack a woman on the head during
a disagreement. The two dog owners
were arguing about the way their
dogs were interacting.
That's not a joke.
I've never been a fan of dog parks.

For years, I've been warning against
them in this space, harping on
the fact that you know absolutely
nothing about the other dogs with
whom your dog is cavorting whether
they're friendly, whether they're
fearful, whether they're moody and
persnickety, whether they're hosting
internal or external parasites you
don't want on your dog or in your
home, whether they love to pick a
Fights at the dog park -- I'm talking
about the canine variety now -- come
with the territory. It's an off-leash
space where relative strangers -- both
human and canine -- come together to
socialize. But as the Auburn incident
illustrates, even the most well-
intentioned socializing can backfire
when personalities clash.
In theory, dog parks are great.
They're all about play. What
complicates matters is that we don't
all play the same way. It's kind of
like when parents from the "we're
just here to have fun" camp mingle
with parents who are "in it to win it"
-- and of course I mean whose kids
are in it to win it. Wink.

SPCA Pet of the Week
Say hello to Spooky. Don't let his name fool you, there's
nothing scary about this handsome one year old black
cat. This loving young man was brought to SPCA Tampa
Bay when his last family could not afford to care for him
anymore. Shelter life has made Spooky a bit nervous, but
if you bring this adoring cat home, you will see what a
great companion he will be. Adopt Spooky for $35. Stop
Largo or visit

Adopt Your Next Cat from the Cat Haven
The Cat Haven is a comfy retreat for adult cats that are seeking a second
chance for forever homes. Conveniently located in Pinellas Park near 49th
St. North, the Cat Haven features felines that live in a cozy environment and
are not confined to small cages. Come see Lori Lyn, a super affectionate black
cat; Rosie, a great Tuxedo girl; Misty; an affectionate medium haired brown &
white Tabby; and Bella, a Tabby & white sweetheart, to name a few. The Cat
Haven is operated by Save Our Strays, Inc.; call 727 871-0888 to schedule an
appointment to meet your next great cat. All SOS cats have been completely
vetted and are microchipped. SOS, a no-kill, non-profit organization features
many cats on its website

The parents and children from these
opposing camps bring very different
energy to the environment of play.
A highly competitive approach
brings aggressiveness, confidence,
willfulness, dominance. A playful
approach is lighter, open, friendly
and relaxed. And while these
attributes are more often associated
with humans, it isn't unheard of for
a dog to absorb and even reflect the
energy of his upright companion. In
other words, it's not blind coincidence
that Cramer and his Chuck It victim
clashed mightily over their dogs'
inability to get along.
The strange thing about this incident
is that it's usually the humans who
are able to talk things out, agree to
disagree or at least walk away. When
trouble brews between dogs at a dog
park, it's easy for it to escalate for
three reasons:
1. The relevant humans are usually
too far away or distracted to do
anything to defuse tension before it
turns into a fight.
2. Humans and dogs tend to react
to a dog fight with excited or frantic
energy, which only makes the fighting
dogs dig in deeper.
3. Dogs aren't impeded by the threat
of a lengthyprison sentence or the lo s s
of everything that made life as they
knew it good. Once fighting, they are
acting on instincts that could drive
them to kill. And that's much worse
-- and much more common -- than a
bonk on the head from a Chuck It.

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

"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.

It's possible that Lynch and the
residents of The Fountains at
Boca Ciega Bay may have already
discovered the Fountain of Youth.
Their secret: getting out and about
"Experiencing your surroundings is
easy to do when you have the right
support," Lynch said. "We take care
of the planning and transportation
and we accompany our residents on
these trips. We love to see people
light up, laugh and have fun out
there. That's what it's all about."

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.

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

Opting for a Flat Tax
federal tax day was Tuesday.
Good time to talk about taxes
and I like the idea of a flat
I read an article the other day that
reported that Californians are fed up
with taxes. Without knowing much
about the details, I assumed that
they are upset with the high personal
income, property, sales and what
other taxes are levied upon them.
Reading a little further though and
it looked like they were upset with
federal taxes, too. Then, reading a
little further I found out that they
were tired of the taxes, but not the
spending. They just thought someone
else, people richer than they, should
pay the tab.
No surprise there, really. Most of
us feel that way. We've paid enough.
Someone else should pay for it.
Problem is in the details. Who should
pay and how much? Right now anyone
who is employed pays 7.65 per cent
of their salary into Social Security
and Medicare funds. The employer
matches that. If you're self-employed
you pay both sides or 15.3 per cent of
your income. Then you pay your local
and state income taxes which could
be another 3 to 5 or even 9 per cent
(not Florida, Texas, Tennessee or
Nevada). On top of that are property

taxes and sales taxes, soon to go to
8 per cent of purchases in Pinellas
County (not 8 cents as reported in
the Tampa Bay Times).
For many, federal income taxes
take more than food, clothing,
or rent combined. That's pretty
significant. Others, however, pay no
federal income taxes or get a refund
(reportedly 47 per cent are in that
category). Kind of a big gap between
zero and maybe 20 per cent if you
don't count SS and Medicare taxes
as taxes as I do because both are
kind of forced retirement that benefit
each person in the end. This gap is
what is called progressive: placing
more taxes on those who can afford
it. Making it more progressive and
supposedly more fair would be to tax
the higher incomes at higher rates
than now.
Some point out that taxes used to
be 72 per cent in the happy-days
1950s as compared to 39-42 per cent
today. That overlooks deduction
and exemptions and distorts the
discussion because few point out that
those high rates are only on the last
bracket of income. Also, very few paid
those rates for a multitude of reasons.
As they say, it's all very complicated.
So what to do about it?
Well, for one, there doesn't seem to be
much sentiment for cutting spending.

We Now Accept Chiropractic Ca
Medicare Providers Headaches,
Most Insurance Accepted Headaches,t Ra


Dr. Edward Foley, D.C.

And, we're dealing here with federal
taxes only. The feds spend the most
and have created a $17 trillion deficit.
If we're going to spend the same
we have to raise revenues enough
to pay for everything plus the debt.
Part of the way to do that is to get
more people paying taxes whether
through getting more people to work,
eliminating frauds and cheats, or
just broadening the base to tax more
Personally, I start with the premise
that government is not entitled to a
citizen's earnings. It does not belong
to them. It, government, has to
negotiate to provide services we're
willing to pay for. After that, it's my
personal belief that everyone should
pay something even if it is $5. If you
aren't paying in, you're not a part of
the system. That makes a difference
psychologically at the very least.
One way to do that is a flat tax (it
is not progressive other than the
person who earns more pays more).
Again, surveys say that people
like the idea of a flat tax, but then
complain that the rich guy doesn't
pay enough. Perhaps one way to do
it is to eliminate all deductions, but
create a base at which the tax starts
but also establish a minimum tax.
That's progressive. Mainly, it gets
away from the matter of providing
a million exemptions that end up in
an incompressible tax code of 75,000
pages that few can accurately figure
No one seems to be happy with what
we have now and a flat tax would be
simpler and easier to collect.

You & THE


By Robert J. Myers, Esq.
How Should My
Business be Set
Up? (Part I)
Our office has had the pleasure of
advising and counseling numerous
clients concerning how to legally
set up a new business venture. As
a result, five (5) different choices of
the types of business entities that
may be utilized will be presented
in this article and our next article.
The five (5) basic choices which an
entrepreneur or new business owner
may wish to consider are:
A. Sole Proprietorship;
B. General Partnership;
C. Limited Partnership;
D. Corporation; and
E. "S" Corporation.
In this article, we will examine
the general legal requirements of
a sole proprietorship and a general
A. Sole Proprietorship
1. A sole proprietorship is an
unincorporated business owned
by a single individual. A sole
proprietorship is not a legal entity
separate from its owner.
2. The owner of a sole proprietorship
has unlimited liability for the debts
and obligations of the business.
The owner, therefore, must rely on
personal assets or insurance for
protection against creditors.

3. For income tax purposes, income
and loss of the sole proprietorship
passes directly to the sole proprietor
and is reported on his individual
income tax return.
4. No special organizational
documents are necessary to begin
business as a sole proprietorship.
5. The advantage of a sole
proprietorship is that it is a simple
means of beginning a business.
6. In Florida, an individual who
engages in business has a sole
proprietorship under a fictitious
name must register the fictitious
name with the Florida Secretary of
State's office in Tallahassee, Florida.
B. General Partnership
1. Apartnership is an unincorporated
association of two or more individuals,
corporations, or other entities
engaging in business for a profit.
2. Like a sole proprietorship, a
general partnership is not a separate
legal entity. Eachpartnerin a general
partnership is personally liable for
the partnership liabilities.
3. A general partnership must file a
separate income tax return for federal
income tax purposes. However, this
is merely an information return.
Generally, all income passes to the
general partners and is reported on
their individual income tax returns.
Losses are also passed through,
subject to limitations, which will be
made stricter if proposed changes in
the tax laws are implemented.
4. Although no written
documentation is necessary to form
a general partnership, normally the
rights and obligations of the various
partners (including their shares of
income, losses, and cash distributed
by the partnership) are specified in

a written partnership agreement.
The partnership agreement may
also specify the manner in which
the business is to be operated, and
may designate a managing general
partner who serves the function of a
chief executive officer. Generally, in
the absence of contrary provisions
in the partnership agreement, the
business affairs of the partnership
are governed by a majority vote of
the partners.
5. Generally, the transfer of a
partnership interest is more difficult
than a transfer of corporate stock.
Restrictions on the transferability of a
partnership interest maybe specified
in the partnership agreement, and
transfers normally require the
consent of the other partners.
6. In Florida, a general partnership
is required to file a fictitious name
7. Generally, the death, insanity,
or withdrawal of a general partner
from the partnership "dissolves" the
partnership, although the remaining
partners may elect to continue
the partnership business in a new
8. Generally, each general partner is
an agent of the partnership and has
the power to bind the partnership.

Law Offices which is located at

this article and other related legal
topics. This column outlines general
legal principles and is not intended

For most of the day Wednesday a ring appeared around the sun.
According to the University of Illinois the ring, also known as a 22 degree
halo or a sun halo, is caused by sunlight passing through ice crystals in cirrus
clouds within the Earth's atmosphere, The crystals bend direct sunlight,
projecting it elsewhere into the sky, and at a 22 degree angle a halo can be
seen around the sun.

A Nice Place to Visit...
ver heard of Seaside? Nestled
against the northern Gulf of
Mexico in the panhandle, this
charming waterfront town has all the
trappings of a quaint seaside respite.
It has bike trails, beach cottages with
gingerbread trim, and artists and
shops along the main thoroughfare.
This town practically beats you over
the head with a conch shell and drags
you down an alley marked "old time
There's a lot about Seaside I
thoroughly enjoy, not the least of
which is that the developer owned a
cat and a dachshund, and the town's
quasi-official logo has a cat and a
dachshund on it. It's cute and only
slightly kitschy. They have a farmer's
market, an Easter Egg Hunt, and a
bevy of smallish shops that really,
really appreciate travelers stopping
buy to drop a few dollars. At first
glance, it's like Gulfport with more
money, or St. Pete Beach without
all the large resorts. If you want to
see what it looks like, watch "The
Truman Show," which was filmed
El Cap, Calypso and I walked around
Seaside last September, and I loved
the communal feel of the place the
way the shops all face each other in a
semicircle, the way anything I bought
had an optional tax to help foster
local art. In short, Seaside utterly
charmed me.
As I said, at first glance, a lot like
The more we strolled around the
town, the something didn't feel quite
right. Honestly? It felt more "Truman
Show" than Gulfport after a couple of
hours, and the charm oozing out of
the sidewalks started to make me
We sat down at Bud and Alley's
(named for the aforementioned
dachshund and cat) for one of the
better pizzas I've eaten in a while,
and because I have a nasty habit
of interrogating the locals when
we travel, I asked our waiter about
Seaside. He told us he didn't live in

Gabber April 17-April 23, 2014

Seaside, but in a less vacation-y place
a few miles outside of town. What's
more, he said, almost nobody lived in
Seaside: he told us the town had one
full-time resident.
While I suspect that's something
of an exaggeration, I did believe the
next thing he said: he wouldn't want
to live there, and it wasn't because
of the prices. I don't recall his exact
words, but they reinforced that
squiggly feeling in my stomach: it's
not real. No, Seaside is a vacation
town. People buy these gorgeous,
charming homes with the express
intent to rent them for a few weeks
at a time. Very few of the owners
stay there for more than a month or
so every year.
It's creepy to walk around a ghost
town filled with people, but that's
exactly what it felt like, because
Seaside was filled with people the
day we visited, but none of the people
had any sort of grounding in the
As for that feeling of community? It
was ephemeral, and, in the end, just
that: a feeling. Seaside's transient.
Don't misunderstand: it's a really,
really nice place to visit. I just
wouldn't want to live there.
Fast forward to Tuesday night at
Gulfport City Council, where people
stormed the castle. One resident
noticed a lot of traffic in front of a
house on his street and got curious,
so he did some checking and realized
his neighbor had listed his home as
a vacation rental on a travel web
site. He reported the neighbor to the
city, and gave the code enforcement
officer the name of the site. Our code
enforcement officer checked out the
site and found 16 other Gulfport
properties that violated the law (in
most areas of Gulfport, you can't rent
your property for less than a month
more than three times a year) and
sent 17 letters. That was April 9th,
and by Tuesday night we had people
in council chambers predicting the
end of Gulfport as we know it if we
didn't allow these short-term rentals
to continue.
I'm not exactly sure we'll have some

sort of Gulfportocalypse if we ban
short-term rentals in residential
areas, but I'd like to make a request
of my neighbors: Please don't do this
in my neighborhood. We chose a
home away from the waterfront for
a couple of reasons, and the lack of
traffic was one of them. I like knowing
my neighbors. Even if they don't all
like me or I don't like all of them, I
like knowing who they are. That still
counts for something for a lot of us.
Now, I realize that 17 rental
properties don't make us Seaside,
or even St. Pete Beach. But that's
the problem with laws: They cannot
truck in gray area; they must be black
and white. Honestly, I don't think
17 properties are a problem but
then, none of them are on my street.
I do think when we start to market
ourselves too heavily as a vacation
destination, we do run the risk of
trading our actual community for
that fleeting feeling of community.
The answer, of course, is to take
each property on a case-by-case basis
and hold a hearing for each one so
the neighbors can have a say. Would
that be ridiculous? Overkill? I don't
know. But here's the rub: Thanks to
Governor Voldemort, if we attempt to
change our law (passed in 1993), we
lose all control over how we govern
lodging. That means the state could
say we couldn't have any lodging
at all or far more likely say we
could have more than we want (but
not more, perhaps, than an outsider
would want). We lose control.
I realize I sound all "the sky is
falling" about this, and I'm not trying
to ignore those shades of gray, but
I do see a worse-cases scenario. I've
been through almost every waterfront
hamlet in the Sunshine State and
I can say with authority that while
Gulfport is far from perfect, it's also a
vanishing way of life. Everyone wants
to be like us, but no one really is.
We worry about our economy, about
our businesses, and our way of life,
and these short-term rentals may
seem like a great way to bring in more
people to spend money with us, but I
can assure you, if we open that door,
we cannot close it again, so let's all
think about what we want our town
to be in 20 years: a nice place to visit,
or a nice place to live.
