Gulfport Little League Addresses Rumors By Cathy Salustri After years of lagging participation and rumors of stolen money, new leadership vows to restore the communitys faith in Gulfport Little League. Last month, a group of parents approached the Gabber with concerns the organization kept secret accounts and funneled money into private accounts. The city of Gulfport leases Gulfport Little League the clubhouse and making Gulfport Little League citysubsidized organization, subject to public records laws. On September 15, the Gabber requested a copy of Little reviewed them with outgoing treasurer, Nicole Latragna. Latragna could not provide treasurer 1, 2013; she told the Gabber that the former treasurer, Mike Russo, provided bank statements in lieu of treasurer reports. A review of the books shows little, although Little League did add to its coffers after Latragna started serving as treasurer. Its hard to say everythings been kosher when all I have for records is this year. I dont know if they have them somewhere else. See Little League, page 36Junk in the Trunk Goes Green One year ago, the Gulfport Neighbors and the city of Gulfport a Truck event, primarily to offer Gulfport residents a way to dispose of unwanted bulk items for free.

16 Gabber October 2 October 8, 2014 Somethin on my mind Somethin on my mindBy Bill Northr op B_Northr op@theGabber. com The Long War PerspectivesWith an aerial war raging against jihadists in the Middle East, threats of terrorism in the US, a workplace beheading by a radicalized Muslim convert in Oklahoma, and a whatperspectives. One comes with a new book, "Flight 93" written by a Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reporter/editor, Tom McMillan. This tells not only the story of the heroic passengers on hijackers, but how the lives of their survivors intertwined with those in the little town of Shanksville, PA, where the plane crashed. It tells the story of the building of what might have happened if the plane had gotten through to the US Capitol building which was its intended target. Intertwined is the actions of the hijackers and the patience and detailed long range planning of Bin Laden and his Al Qaeda colleagues. The book shows that we are, even 13 years later, in a war that and indirectly. We may see the war as starting on September 11, 2001, or even conceding that it started the Twin Towers or in a response essence may have roots hundreds of years ago, or stimulated with the establishment of Israel, but its reality began in the 1980s with the bombing of the Marine barracks in Beirut, Lebanon and following kidnappings and other evil acts in the years leading up to 1993. "Flight 93" is an interesting, welldocumented, and easy read leaving you with a warm and fuzzy feeling. Not so with another book, "13 six US security contractors in the attack on the Benghazi consulate in Libya in 2012. Four Americans died, including US Ambassador Chris Stevens. This is an inside story about battling the jihad (for lack of a better word) on the ground and on the streets. It is a tense, chilling story about being prepared and not being prepared and the consequences and results of both. to put down even when you know the ending. However, like "Flight 93," "13 Hours" tells us something about the unrelenting, fanatical, ruthless and complex nature of the A more nuanced and intellectual treatment comes in a book, "Turkey and the Arab Spring," written by Graham E. Fuller who has studied the Middle East primarily as a CIA analyst for 40 years. Summing up be done in a short or even long treatise. However, it would be accurate to say that Fuller sees hope for the Muslim world through the leadership of Turkey and the relative moderation of the Muslim Brotherhood. Interestingly, many of his observations, though written as late as early 2014, have been challenged by the events of the past few months. Nonetheless, the books is a worthwhile, if slow, read that covers the history of most of the Muslim world. However, what comes of all of this is that while Americans tolerate only relatively short wars (until now, Vietnam was the long war), the reality is that the war against extremist Islam is an extended war and should be treated as such. Military force is a major aspect and, at times, the only response. Equally important, or even more important, is response within the Muslim world. There is an overt and continual and historical battle between Sunnis and the Shias that fuels this every bit as much as our perceived and real western interference, economic and militarily, into Middle Eastern affairs. Even more complicating is that while some of the battle is about pure political power and economic dominance, the big overlay spiritual as in creating a Sharia law-based Caliphate. It will be a long, long war. Somethin' on My Mind is an opinion column written by Bill Northrop. opinions of Gabber publishers, staff or advertisers. Contact Bill at

22 Gabber October 2 October 8, 2014 SAR Celebrates American Lineage By Gary Wyman Sons of the American Revolution (SAR) is the leading male lineage society to expand the United States citizen participation in preserving our American heritage. This is accomplished locally and nationally by presenting the ideals of the American Revolutionary War for independence our citizenrys everyday life. Members responsibilities are to maintain and expand the meaning of patriotism, respect for our national symbols and the inherent value of being an American citizen. The citizens of the thirteen colonies uniquely embraced our unifying force of e pluribus unum (one out of many). From this concept people from many nations living in the thirteen colonies emerged as one nation one people and all Americans. Over the years, descendants of Revolutionary War veterans united in honoring the men and women who pledged their lives, fortunes and livelihood in their struggle for independence from England. Todays men and women are promoting and celebrating our national heritage days and the founding of the United States from thirteen colonies. As time passes, SAR, and our sister organization Daughters of the American Revolution, are presenting to our communities vibrant memories of the heroes of our Republic. SAR and DAR members are not deterred by the passage of time and the overwhelming number of new immigrants with no connection to our high-spirited relatives who fought for the independence of the greatest nation on earth. The e pluribus unum spirit that bound the colonies together is alive and well at every SAR and DAR chapter. Gary and Vaughn Wyman (right), sons of the late Roy and Jennie Wyman of Caribou, Maine, were inducted into the Sons of the American Revolution Society on September 20 in St Petersburg. Guest Speaker Thomas Jefferson spoke on his document, the Declaration of Independence. Members of SAR must prove their family lineage between 1775 and 1779 by presenting documents clearly stating their involvement in the war for independence to the society at the local, state and national level prior to induction.

Sleeping in a safe park, surrounded by friends, in a box house built with hopes of winning best decorated or most creative awards doesnt truly emulate life on the streets. The founder and president of Hannahs helping local homeless people, knows this because she spent 17 years of her life homeless. She ran away at age 11 and lived on the St. Petersburg streets, off and on, until she was 28. I live a completely different life, Trunzo says.

She speaks candidly about her past drug use, arrests, and the daughter she didnt get to raise. Hannah was the name of the daughter I gave up for adoption when I was homeless, she says. She gave Hannah up for adoption as a newborn. Two years after surrendering her daughter to what she hoped would be a better life, Trunzo found the strength to get off the streets. The last time I got arrested, I was pretty well done, she tell me I was a shell of a person, a ghost. I was spiritually, emotionally just dead.

Campers ate a soup kitchen-styled meal; later in the evening, the plan was to roast marshmallows Although rains drove campers home, Trunzo remained hopeful. I was really bummed by the bad weather and us having to pack up and leave early, Trunzo wrote on Hannahs Homeless Facebook page. Then a friend pointed out that we are lucky that we have the chance to get up and leave. We had dry clothes at home and homes to go to. The folks those deemed as chronically homeless and they do not have homes to go to or dry clothes to go inside and change into. Trunzo hopes to raise enough money to open a drop-in shelter in St. Petersburg, but she says the main problem comes from potential landlords. Homeless does get its shelter, she says shell keep the motto Housing First and welcome anyone. Many shelters require sobriety or other lifestyle commitments before allowing a homeless person assistance.

Dear Editor: The Gulfport Gabber is a wonderful publication and allowing opposing viewpoints should be applauded. However the Gabber printed a letter from Sheriff Gualtieri [September 25, 2014 edition] regarding his stance on Amendment 2. Bob Gualtieri sure missed the boat on this one. It is not based on fact, a low information voter may believe it is and vote against this very important amendment. Fact 1. Marinol is not a form of marijuana. It is a man-made chemical with dozens of adverse effects. The active ingredient in MARINOL Capsules, is synthetic delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (delta-9-THC), according to http:// Fact 2. Marinol is only prescribed to cancer and HIV/AIDS patients to stimulate appetite. Marinol is a pill meaning you can easily take too much, the intake period is between 1 and 4 hours until you get the effects. They say it is really close to actual Marijuana which is completely false. A 30 day supply costs over $900. The reason why Marinol is not effective in treating other diseases and conditions is simple. It is proven fact that Cannabinoids work together as they are absorbed into the body. You cannot just use THC, you will not get the normal effects of Marijuana as Cannabinoids, each with medicinal properties that have been used safely for over 4000 years to treat a myriad of diseases. Fact 3. Marijuana would never be prescribed to a minor without parental consent. Im sure if a minor wants it they can choose to purchase at one of the hundreds of open air drug markets that litter Pinellas County or the school yard dealer for FaceBook Snipetts The following are excerpts only from the Gabbers Gulfport Ideas and Opinions Facebook group. Space does not allow us to print the entire thread; please join the group to see the whole conversation. Gina Burke: Heard through the grapevine that Family Dollar was robbed this morning. Does anyone knowledge of this? Jim Greenwald (Posting as Gym Fish): Ah, Gulfport Brenda Knoll Budd: Any city on earth. Nancy Kelley: There is too much crime in Gulfport! Denise Wimmer Lowe: If you look at statistics crime is down in Gulfport. Media just makes the info more available. Jim Greenwald: consider moving back! Jonathan Schork: some bikes get stolen, and occasionally we have some weird act of burglary, plus people walking their dogs on the beach, and the drunks who drive three continents, and, even though I hear constantly how rife Gulfport is with crime, my experience suggests that this place really is Mayberry. The way most people experience crime is anecdotal: somebody said that somebody they knew knew somebody details of the police reports Gym if anyone still thinks Gulfport is so twice the population of Gulfport and more than 10 times as many police. I will like Brenda doubtless be dismissed as naive, but experience is the refutation of that.

Gabber October 2 October 8, 2014 31 Lettersand how we work together toward a better future. Crime happens but I Robert Vincent: The call this morning at Family Dollar was a suspicious person, nothing more. The shoplifting alarm went off, and the person refused to stop and return. He was gone when police arrived. Robbery is the taking of property by force or threat of violence, and it is a relatively rare occurrence. Robbery can be anything from a bank holdup to a purse-snatching, and on average, this occurs about 15 times per year in Gulfport. The 2013 robbery rate for Gulfport was 1.4 offenses per 1,000 of 2.54 offenses per 1,000 residents in St. Petersburg. Mickey Doughfman Birt: I have lived all over the country and visited Europe. Trust me when I say that if the crime rate in Gulfport is enough to make you leave, you have no clue what constitutes crime. If you are living somewhere now, where no one gets, drunk, steals bikes, or commits domestic violence, then you must be in some sort of gated enclave. This ever been.


32 Gabber October 2 October 8, 2014 By Robert J. Myers, Esq. How Should My Business Be Set Up? Part II In our last article, we examined together the general legal requirements of a sole proprietorship and general partnership. In this article, we will examine the general legal aspects of a limited partnership and a Florida Corporation. A. Limited Partnership 1. A limited partnership is similar to a general partnership. The primary difference is that some partners are designated as "limited" partners and, as such, are normally not personally liable for the debts and obligations of the partnership, except to the extent of their contribution of capital to the partnership. A limited partner is a passive investor, and is prohibited from participating actively in the management of the partnership business. If a limited partner participates in management, liability and, instead, be treated as a general partner for purposes of determining liability for partnership debts and obligations. 2. A limited partnership must have at least one general partner and at least one limited partner. The general partner of a limited partnership has unlimited liability obligations. 3. Like a general partnership, the income of a limited partnership is passed through to the partners, and reported on their individual income tax returns. 4. A limited partnership is Tallahassee, Florida. Normally, the in a separate limited partnership agreement, which may be more limited partnership. A Florida annual report and pay an annual fee to the Florida Secretary of State, to conduct business as a limited partnership. B. Corporation 1. A corporation is a separate legal entity or "person" for purposes of both state law and federal income tax law. A corporation may be formed by any number of individuals, other corporations, or other entities. 2. The owners of a corporation are "shareholders." Normally, business policies are dictated by a board of directors, which is elected by the shareholders. In Florida, a corporation may have as few as one director. Normally, directors are elected annually, at an annual meeting of shareholders. 3. Normally, the routine operations of the corporation are managed by elected periodically by the board of directors. In Florida, a corporation must have a president, secretary, and treasurer, and may have one or more vice presidents or assistant 4. Corporations are required to hold annual meetings of shareholders, at which the shareholders may elect directors. 5. For federal income tax purposes, a corporation is taxed as a separate entity, and income and losses of the corporation are not passed to its shareholders, unless the corporation makes an "S election." 6. A corporation is formed by "articles of incorporation," with the Tallahassee, Florida. The articles of incorporation must contain various including a unique corporate name, a statement of the number of shares of stock that the corporation is authorized to issue, the par value (if any) of the stock, the duration of the corporation (if other than perpetual), the general purposes for which the corporation is initially authorized (which may be stated to include in the transaction of any or all lawful business for which corporations may be incorporated under Florida law), the name of an initial registered of process can be made upon the corporation, the name of directors, and the name and street address of the incorporator. The corporation is pay an annual fee to the Secretary of State in order to maintain its standing as a corporation. 7. After the articles of incorporation are formed, the board of directors holds an initial organizational adopts bylaws, and takes other organizational actions. The bylaws consist of a written document specifying the "rules" under which the corporation will be governed and managed. 8. Generally, ownership interests in a corporation may be transferred through a sale of stock, although the transfer of stock may be restricted by agreement or by law.Mr. Myers is the owner of Akerson 1135 Pasadena Avenue South, Suite 140, St. Petersburg.

36 Gabber October 2 October 8, 2014 Little League, from front pageLatragna says she started keeping more detailed records, which she passed on to the new treasurer, While attempting to maintain the books, Latragna did discover a second bank account she said only one person, former board member and one-time treasurer, Bruce Ward, knew about. She neither knew about nor had access to this account, but when the state of Florida drafted money from the old account for annual fees, she received a notice. Ward disagrees and says the board did know about the account. Most of the board knew about [the account], but it didnt get reported in the treasurers report, Ward said. He told the Gabber Little League used that account until it switched to Wells Fargo. The new account was opened but the old account was left sitting there, and at some future point we would move the money, Ward said. It didnt get moved right away. He said [the old account] was for emergencies, Nicole Latragna said of Wards explanation, adding that the board closed the account We were like, Is there anything else?, she said. The concession stands were the next thing she tackled. We didnt see the rate of return for retail sales for the expenses, Paul Latragna, the incoming Gulfport Little League president, said, explaining that he expected to see a minimum 30% return. A lot of stuff left for free, Nicole Latragna said. Late last month the membership board members. Both Latragnas and other Little League parents and volunteers admit the organization has an uphill battle ahead of it to restore its reputation. In recent years, Gulfport Little Leagues enrollment has declined, and if numbers do not continue to escalate (the club has seen an increase in numbers over the past year), Gulfport Little League will rejoin with Southwest Little League. Years ago Southwest split from Gulfport and since then the two organizations remained separate, with most of Gulfport playing in Gulfport, but anyone west of 58th Street and south of Gulfport Boulevard playing on St. Pete Beach. Latragna said. If the merger happens, the organization will get a new constitution and, in all probability, she said, the board will be comprised of half Gulfport, half Southwest. Getting enrollment up will be easier, Paul Latragna says, once people realize Gulfport Little League has nothing to hide and is operating in the best interest of the kids. I have heard people tell me they will not bring their kids to Little League because of the reputation, Paul Latragna said, adding that he heard a lot of allegations he couldnt prove. allegations coming in, he said. Were having a hard time proving it. I think it was mostly personal attacks. What better way to make people lose trust than to question the money? Moving forward, Paul Latragna promised transparency. Changes include opening an account that requires two signatures, getting competitive bids for things like uniforms and creating a menu with set prices for the concession stand. President Paul Latragna said he believes in the organization. Things may not have been run or organized perfectly, [but] there was no ill will or attempt to defraud Gulfport Little League, he said.Contact Cathy Salustri at

40 Gabber October 2 October 8, 2014 Math and TrashI have grown disturbingly fond of our towns vice mayor, Christine Brown. We both volunteer with the Gulfport Historical Society, and even though shes apparently a Republican and Im a bleeding-heart liberal, weve managed to look past labels and somehow work together. As it turns out, our political allegiances have shockingly little to do with our love for Gulfport. One of the things I like about her is her penchant for numbers. I like numbers well enough I mean, who hasnt wanted three wishes or one more chance? but I dont really get them. Christine, though, shes some sort of math savant, and as weve started working together on historytype projects, shes inspired me to do some math of my own. It has to do with Gulfports special collections and the fees associated with it. This Saturday, the city of Gulfport will allow Gulfport Neighbors to hold the Neighborhood Center. The city will haul any junk you bring to the 49th Street Neighborhood Center (aside from chemicals or electronics) to the countys waste-to-energy facility every other day, the city charges $17 per swipe of the garbage trucks big ol claw to grab it off our curbsides. Gulfport Neighbors has a simple goal to inspire, motivate and unite our neighbors in order to improve the quality of life in Gulfport but for me, this large-item pickup is a complex issue. I grew up in Clearwater, where every Friday a truck came down the street and hauled away things that provided this as part of our trash services. When I moved to Gulfport, I thought it would be the same and was shocked to learn of the $17 claw swipe fee. While surprising, it makes sense. After all, it costs money to run our sanitation department. (The workers apparently like to get paid and things like that, and the county charges the city for the trash we bring them.) However, has anyone else noticed some houses seem to accumulate trash? I wonder if the fear of a high trash bill keeps the broken screen doors, discarded wood, and random cans and tires in the yard instead of at the curb. Inspired by the vice mayors some math of my own. I asked the city for two numbers: the amount billed year that ended this week, and the number of utilities customers. Public Works Director Don Sopak told me his department charged $76,069.72 and that the department has 5,243 customers. I pulled out my trusty calculator and did some quick ciphering. If we divided the amount we billed by the number of trash accounts, it comes to $14.51 per account, per year. Of course, if the city offered bulk pickup as part of its services if it just happened, say, every Monday certainly more people would set out unwanted items, so wed have to pay the county more for disposal. $14 per house per year wouldnt cover it, so what if we just bumped up everyones does that mean for the city? Well, $60 times 5,243 equals $314,580. Take away what we already charge (the $76,000) and thats an increase in revenue of $238,510.28. Ill need the vice mayor to check my math, but this appears a threeway win: Dons department gets extra sewers, roads, alleys, and repaying the sanitary sewer repair loan; residents and businesses dont have to save up to have enough money to get rid of their garbage; and Gulfport Neighbors can spend more time on neighborhood instead of hosting bulk collection days. This is one way the city can make all of our lives easier without costing any one of us too much money. The bonus? The city will look better with our yards cleared out, and Gulfport Neighbors can focus on larger projects. Until then, Ill bring Gulfport Neighbors my own small pile this Saturday.
