Why not get the tax structure right in will now be able to give tax breaks for up to 10 years on buildings and machinery to new or expanding companies. It will be on an individual basis partly based on the number of approved the measure last week. Supposedly that puts Pinellas other counties. All well and good, I suppose, except Someone else is paying the tax that newcomers or expanding companies are not. We have to presume that taxes are needed to meet government bills and how do we calculate how bring in? We don't have a state or local income tax after all (and don't I'm not opposed to helping new or expanding business. In the 1960s raised private money and combined that with some state low-interest loan money. We learned pretty quickly that companies wheel and deal for special deals and that money is amoral. We also learned that there are a lot of people out there with personal interests waiting to tap-in to handouts by putting political pressure on whomever to get their way. It's not an easy nor pretty process. It's not wrong and helping businesses is worthwhile. tax money should go into the effort and what's the payback (other than Instead of tax breaks why not (roads, utilities, and public services, bureaucracy is there to help rather than to stop proper development? Those things make a whole lot of difference. However, I'm a realist. Politicians like to hand out exemptions, exceptions, exclusions, etc. That's why we have a federal tax code of 75,000 pages (or is it only when we like the tax breaks we call them incentives; when we don't we call them loopholes. The reality is that there are no loopholes. There are always political or hardship reasons for the so-called "gaps." I will only concede the loophole bit to the concept of unintended consequences as in, "Oh, we didn't see that that would happen!" In the meanwhile, while states and counties and even municipalities businesses, the feds and the locals are crying about all the loopholes in that a big part of the problem is that the basic tax rates are the problem Instead of changing the tax structure, the federal government is now labeling some companies "unpatriotic" for picking up some of the marbles (like corporate countries with lower tax rates. It's only a handful of companies and the the US known as the highest in the advanced world. It's really nothing new trying to escape taxes, or pay as little as you have to. Everyone has the freedom to do that legally. The irony is that with all the political whining about these few companies, some politically connected companies such as GE and Google, because of the tax code structure, don't pay much in taxes anyway. And, super-rich guys shelter taxes with complex, legal, tax-code-allowed holding companies and trusts. The point is get the tax structure exemptions and exclusions and all to be fair, equitable, simple and understandable with the emphasis on simple and understandable. Whenever we resort to what we have now we come up with favoritism, bias, and discrimination.

Gabber September 4 September 10, 2014 31 I Clearly Dont Understand ArtWhen I decided to take off my business suits and strike out as a freelancer, I did so with the distinct impression I needed to deliver stellar work on time and as promised. If I wanted to eat and pay my bills, I needed to meet my deadlines in the agreed looking at the business end of a desk people who reinforced this idea of that I would be able to feed myself if I kept my promises and did good work. These are the rules by which most freelancers live. What puzzles me is that these rules apparently fail to apply to artists. Namely, a few of the artists selected to take public funds to create art in Let me pause here and say Susanne Vernon and Tom Pitzen have created memorable pieces that make me proud to be the sort of city that spends money on the arts. pleased to even know you. -shame on you. At least Jonathan Schork has delivered, although not quite in the manner the city apparently expected. While I freely admit the musical instruments are indeed delightful pieces of art that also make me proud of our citys decision, Im more than a little irritated we had to spend money to accommodate your decision to put them in an area other than the one you and the client agreed upon. So shame on you less, but still, I wish disregarding what you promised us. talent, but people who want to feed making art understand that talent only carries you so far. Because its cost is not. People use real money, as you expect Amazon to deliver your books and shoes in exchange for your credit card number, people tend to when the city uses tax dollars to pay you promised, how you promised, when you promised. In truth, I blame the city for placing its faith in you. I blame the city for allowing members of the selection committee to select themselves to receive city funds for a commission. I blame the city for trusting you and not making you sign a contract. I blame the city for not checking references to see a pattern, at least with one artist, of not delivering on time or at all. I blame the city for handing you any money at all in advance, much less $5,500 per artist. The portion of my property taxes that goes into Gulfport will be roughly $400 this year. That means more than 20 homes like mine will have to pay property taxes to cover the cost of the two of you who have, as of yet, not delivered. It is the citys fault, not yours, that they made the poor decision to believe you shared our sense of community and would show us respect in return for our faith in you. Sadly, the end result will be that all the art, I imagine, will get erected on the artists schedule, which is clearly not the one the city explained to me. The real failing here is not that the art is late or that it is not what was promised, but that these artists are making the best possible case anyone could as to why the city should spend its money anywhere other than public art. I doubt, of course, those who are not honoring their promise to the community thought about that. But I think about it a lot, because I believe also believe that the world belongs to those who show up and keep their promises. Contact Cathy Salustri at

With all due respect, I have to the sculpture garden that includes 10 designated spots for art pieces. Taxpayer monies were allocated based on that design. I'm a bit taken aback that you opted to veer from what was designed and designated, by placing the symphony in the grass on the opposite side of the walk and apart from where all the other art is intended to be placed. Not sure what such at least one artist would have a piece in both the north portion and the south portion of the park. The sculpture garden and the taxpayers are now left with an empty display area and monies spent for naught. As creative as the symphony may be, to me it looks completely out of place, plopped in the grass on what to me looks like three turds of cement. I am not sure that defying the client's plan would be tolerated or allowed to happen in the gardens of a museum or within a corporate environment art collection. I am very disappointed with what to me is a slap in the face to the taxpayers and elected and the entire look and feel of the public art garden has been lessened and cheapened and the agreement with the people / taxpayers paying for it has been breached. If I'm overlooking something I will stand corrected; in the meanwhile I hope this is the only creative breach of contract that we will see.
