Maverick Lee Wells soars through the play-
ground on a replica Piper Cub at last Saturday
morning's grand opening of the Albert Whitted
park and playground. Playground designers
imitated the facets of Albert Whitted Airport.
Maverick Lee, 20 months old, rides a replica
springrider plane of a Piper Cub that lives at
Whittled. Another springrider plane looks just
like the Waco biplane used by Biplane Rides. .7'p .
Other playground equipment includes a tower .- -- A
fashioned after the air traffic control tower at
Whitted. This tower has a "radio" that trans-
mits into the cockpit of more playground .
equipment that resembles the Bayflight heli- .
copter, also stationed at Whitted. The layout -
of the playground replicates the layout of Al-
bert Whitpted Airport. -

"We're having such a wonderful time together," said Do-
lores Ehrick of Gulfport at Monday's "Intergenerational
Bingo and Ice Cream" social at the Rec Center. Joined
here by husband Ed, and a new friend and Bingo winner
Nathan West, Dolores was one of many guests from the
Gulfport Senior Center who came for the food and fun with
the kids from the Rec Center's After School program.
Nathan, who had already won a skateboard keychain,
seemed more interested in Bingo than the dessert. "He
says he's going to play it all the time, now," joked Ed.

Construction Noise
Ordinance Passes
A new Gulfport city ordnance
passed second reading on Tuesday
by a 2-1 vote and will limit permit-
ted construction activities and nois-
es to the hours of 8:00 a.m. to 9:00
p.m. Monday through Saturday
and 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. On Sun-
days. A provision was added to the
ordinance after first reading which
allows for emergency construction
activities at any hour.
The new ordinance was initi-
ated after a number of residents
complained to the city that during
the recent construction project at
the Church of Christ of Latter Day
Saints, located at 5425 Gulfport
Boulevard, delivery trucks were ar-
riving as early at 5:00 a.m. and that
associated construction noises, in-
cluding the use of heavy excavating
equipment was beginning shortly
Council member Michele King,
who voted no on the first reading,
voted no on the second go-around
as well.

Stetson To Get
New Chiller Plant
Gulfport city council approved a
site plan which will allow Stetson
University College of Law to con-
struct a new 300 ton chiller plant and
maintenance facility in the north-
west section of campus. Plans call
for the newr plant and facility. to be
constructed in a section of an existing
parking lot currently used for faculty.
While construction of the plant does
reduce the number of parking spaces
from 60 to 26 in that location. Stetson
will still provide 699 off street park-
ing spaces. The city's codes call for a
minimum of 659 spaces.
The plant and maintenance facil-
ity are Phase I of seven which are
part of the university's general mas.
ter plan which calls for a number of

construction and renovation projects
over the next several years.
The approved site plan includes
an 11 foot wall around the chiller
plant with sound suffering mecha-
nisms included along the interior of
the structure. Plans call for both fa-
cilities to be constructed in the same
Mediterranean revival style architec-
ture that is a hallmark of all build-
Ings on campus.

Cleaning COntinUOS
As part of Gulfport's ongoing sewer
repair and renovations, council ap-
proved an expenditure of $92,714 to
clean and televise lines along 31st
Avenue South, Tradewinds Drive,
Baywood Point, and Tifton Drive
South. Cleaning and televising lines
allows public works to prioritize
and schedule repairs needed based
upon degrees of defects in the lines.
According to Don Sopak, director of
public works, about 45 percent of the
city's sanitary sewer system has been
televised. The expenditure leaves an
unencumbered balance of $176,914

the report is three-fold. First, to pro-
vide an update on implementation
of the Tampa Bay Nitrogen Man-

and third, to request an extension of

will continue to provide reasonable
assurance that the strategy will ad-
equately address impairment of des-
ignated uses related to nutrients in

According to Don Sopak, public
works director, nitrogen is a major
pollutant in Tampa Bay and Boca
Ciega Bay that causes algae blooms
which in turn reduce sea grass cov-
erage in the bays. The Tampa Bay
Nitrogen Management Consortium

was formed in 199 to "hold the line"
target on nitrogen discharges into
Tampa Bay and Boca Ciega Bay.
Gulfport joined the Consortium in
Sopak explained to council that
the "hold the line" target means
the consortium proposed to limit
the amount of nitrogen entering
both bays to the average amount
in 1992-1994. In November 2002,
the Florida Department of Environ-
mental Protection (FDEP) approved
Nitrogen Management Strategy for

IVIarina Provides

Tarpon DNA
The Gulfport Marina will partici-
pate in a second season of providing
Tarpon DNA Samples to the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission (FWC). Collected samples
help the Tarpon Genetic Recapture
Despite their popularity, scientists
know little about tarpon recapture
rates. FWC provides participants
with a jaw scrape kit. A small sample
of skin cells provides enough DNA
to genetically or biologically tag and
identify an individual tarpon with
remarkable certainty. By evaluat-
ing these DNA samples to determine
the recapture rates of fish over time,
FWC will asses the success of tarpon
stocks and determine if tarpon "mix
freely" between different bodies of
Florida waters and beyond.

Kosher Pickle Making
Learning how to make the great
American Kosher dill, while discov-
ering the pickle's amazing history, is
sure to excite the taste buds of any
pickle lover. But, what makes a pick-
le kosher? This and many other ques
tions will be answered on Sunday
afternoon, February 24 during the
premiere of Kosher Pickle Making.
"People will have the chance to
personalize their own pickles," says
Rabbi Shmuel Margolin, otherwise
known as Rabbi Pickle. "The program
is going to answer a lot of questions
you may have about kosher."
According to program organizers the
event is open to the public and they
claim you'll never look at a pickle the
same way again. The event is spon-
sored by the Chabad Jewish Center
of S. Petersburg.
Kosher Pickle making will be held.
Sunday, February 24 at 1:30 p.m.
at the Chabad Jewish Center, 6151
Central Avenue in St. Petersburg.

Get Fido
Fixed for Free
If a simple surgery could save their
Pet's life would most pet owners do
it? Spaying and neutering a four-
legged friend could decrease the risk
of many types of cancer and infec-
tions. The Society for the Prevention
of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) Tampa
Bay is offering 100 free spay-neuter
surgeries to the pets of people with
limited income from February 19-29.
In recognition of National Spay/
Neuter Day, the Largo shelter
works with local veterinarians to
offer surgeries at no cost February
19-29. Service includes pet vac-
cinations and rabies shots. In addi-
tion, the SPCA's year round Fix a
Pit Program offers free spay/neuter
surgeries to Pit Bull Terriers and Pit
Bull mixes.
To qualify, applicants must apply
in person with recent 1040 form ev-
ery Tuesday at the SPCA, 9099 130
Avenue N. in Largo between 9 a.m.
and 4 p.m. or from February 19-29
apply Tuesdays-Fridays between
9 a.m. and 4 p.m. at the SPCA.
There are many programs through-
out the Tampa Bay area where pet
owners can get their pet spayed or
neutered, like the 9th Annual Feline
Spay Program sponsored by the
Pinellas County Veterinary Medical
Association, Pinellas County Animal
Services, the SPCA Tampa Bay, and
Pinellas Animal Foundation.
The SPCA can help Tampa Bay resi-
dents find many spay and neuter pro-
grams in their area. Call 586-3591 or

How is Your

Legal Health?

Marital Status
During your legal checkup, a re-
view of your marital status may un-
cover certain aspects of the marriage
which you may wish to address. For
example, couples may desire to en-
ter into prenuptial agreements to
separation agreements to help avoid
disputes in the event of a divorce.
Prenuptial agreements or separa-
tion agreements can address prop-
erty rights, child support, child cus-
tody and visitation rights you may
have regarding your children. These
agreements can be finalized before
or during your marriage. Unmarried
couples who are living together may
desire to enter into an agreement
to specify expected rights and re-
sponsibilities which are similar to a
prenuptial or separation agreement.

ployees against discrimination by
employers. However, there are spe-
cific procedures which must be fol-
lowed and time restrictions on the
filing of a claim or lawsuit.
The purchase or sale of a home
probably is one of the largest invest-
ment decisions you will make in your
lifetime. As a result, it is important
to avoid unfavorable contract provi-
sions in your sales agreement. Also,
the real estate agent's listing con-
tract should be carefully reviewed
so that you understand what your
rights and obligations are under
the agreement. If you are buying or
selling a home, a review of all docu-
ments by an attorney may save you
time, money and aggravation so that
your interests are protected and the
sale can be completed.

I have not liked this ordinance from
the very beginning. I think there is
the issue that 8:00 a.m. is too late for
many contractors and I think that
9:00 p.m. is too late to permit work
to precede in the city. We have no
inspectors working at that hour and
I think this is an invitation to un-

--A reverse mortgage specialist on your side.

Oanie Clarloin
By Shelly Wilson
There are probably very few
folks reading this who haven't
yet heard about reverse mort-
gage. Still, there are many who
haven't taken advantage of it.
But why?
It may be due to misconceptions:
that the government-backed loan
will actually risk your home; that
there are high interest rates; that it's
difficult to be approved. In fact, none
of this is true.
For those who may not know, re-
verse mortgage, or home equity con-
version, is a loan against your pri-
mary residence a house, condo or
other residence that you do not have
to pay back for, as long as you live

cash without having to move or to re-
pay the loan each month in fact, the
low interest loan is not due until you
leave your home. The selling price of
your home whether sold by you or
your estate will usually easily cover
the loan, often with equity left over.
The system, insured by the Federal
Housing Administration (FHA), and
endorsed by the AARP, is designed
to help seniors not to steal their
homes or leave them with expenses.
Of course, to some folks a reverse
mortgage always sounds too good to
be true. Well, it is good but it's also
"I think it's one of the best things the
government's ever done for seniors,"
says Joanie Clarkin, a Town Shores
resident and reverse mortgage advi-
sor with American Reverse Mortgage.
"If you are 62 years or older, you've
built up a lot of equity in your home.
Why not use it for something?"
Essentially, it's tax-free cash for
seniors. Instead of paying the bank
monthly, you get a monthly check.
There are other payment options as
well, including a single lump sum or
an account which you can draw on
when and how you need it.
How many seniors out there could
use a little more financial freedom?
"I recently went out to see a couple
who couldn't afford their medications

d e oo% aa Then
and they had this huge p.ayment.
Through a reverse mortgage, we were
able to not only repay their loan, but

"Its s ineretin gong ut nd eetng eope,"says Clarkin, a Reverse

also secure them an extra $1000 a
month for living expenses. Thank
God we were able to go out there and
help them!"
While this case illustrates the bless-
ing reverse mortgage can be for se-
niors on fixed-incomes, it is just as
welcome for many others. A lot of
people think that only seniors who
are in serious financial need, or those
who need help with other expenses,
take advantage of reverse mortgage.
The truth is, you don't have to repay
the loan as long as you live in your
home so why not have fun with it?
"I've had people who get a reverse
mortgage and use it to help them re-
tire comfortably," says Clarkin. "I've
seen people take the money and go
travel. They've earned that money,
so why not?"
So why aren't more seniors taking
advantage of a reverse mortgage?
Actually, they are. In the last ten
years, reverse mortgages have grown
exponentially. People are finally get-
ting the message about this win-win
system designed to help seniors.
In her 40 years in human services,
and current position in community

something about helping people, and
in ten years of living at Town Shores,
she's seen what a difference reverse

mortgage can make.
"That's really what got me inter-
ested in doing this, says Clarkin.
"Ima senior, and people our age
shouldn't have to deal with debt and
money troubles. This program is just
a great tool for seniors.
Through her company, American
Reverse Mortgage, Clarkin visits se-
niors all over the bay area.
"We come out to your home for an
educational session. Then, you meet
with a HUD counselor to make sure
that you are comfortable with the
process. It's all set up to protect the
seniors, and we take care of every-
Whether you've got a little equity,
or own your home outright, a reverse
mortgage can make a big difference
in your life.
Says Clarkin, "I look at it like part
of a retirement plan. It sa low inter-
est, no risk retirement plan. You've
worked all your life now it's time to
enjoy it!

comes up for attention.
As retired university professors,
we have great respect for the huge
amount of time, effort, and serious
research that Al and Cindy Davis
have put into this issue. Views may
differ on whether their passion seems
appropriate or not, but their infor-
ination gathering has been too care-
ful and too thorough to be dismissed
lightly. Like most highly committed
advocates, they have provoked some
controversy. But discrediting them
and listening only to their critics
doesn't get the problem solved.
We have written to Rep. Kriseman
urging him reschedule the summit
meeting. He should use his good of-
fices to create a forum that opens
up the issue to discussion among a
wider range of Gulfport residents,
getting the conversation on to a more
constructive plane. That would be so
much better than having him take
sides in the very dispute he deplores,
withdrawing effort by cancelling the
summit. Gulfport and of course,
Clam Bayou will be better off if all
sides of this controversy can avoid
personalizing the issue and demon-
izing each other. That's exactly why
we need a summit meeting. We need
to open up the discussion, clear the
air about this as a community, and
get on about the business of actually
preserving the bayou before it's gone
Carolyn Needleman, PhD and
Martin L. Needleman, PhD

forever a beautiful, valuable, and ir-
replaceable natural resource. Rep.
IG'iseman saw the bayou's worsening
condition himself in his recent trip
here. Speaking for ourselves, we've
noticed a drastic change in water
level and bird population since we
moved here in 2004. .
Rep. Kriseman expresses faith in
Swiftmud's SWIM program and set-
entific experts. But in all honesty'
there's beeir little progress on that
plan for over a decade, and it's un-
derstandable that many of us here in
Gulfport no longer share that faith.
The state's experts, Dr. Henningsen
and Dr. Runnels, may be competent
scientists, but they seem inexph-
cably content to let Clam Bayou be
transformed from an estuary into a
wooded upland a poor replacement'
given the critical role that estuaries
play in maintaining fish. mammal'
and bird habitats in Florida's coastal
Everyone involved understands
that what's happening in Clam Bay-
ou is not a "natural" process. The
bayou's decline is due directly to ac-
cumulation of sediment from St. Pe-
tersburg's storm runoff. Removing
surface trash, however satisfying in
the short run, won't halt this process
or solve the root problem. Officials
we've talked to in St. Petersburg say
they're committed to buildmg the
planned settlement ponds, but for
whatever reason, the plan is now in
its twelfth year with no results. Fix-
ing the problem may be proceeding,
but it's proceeding on bureaucratic
time. Unfortunately, the bayou is a
severely stressed living thing and
its decline is taking place quite a bit
faster. At this pace, the bayou will
already be a meadow by the time it

Let's Not Lose Sight of
Saving Clam BayoU
Dear Editor: It's disappointing
that Representative ICriseman has
chosen to cancel the planned "sum-
mit meeting" to discuss the fate of
Clam Bayou. As he explained in his
January 30, 2008 letter to Mr. and
Mrs. Davis, which was extensively
quoted in last week's Gabber, he
has become convinced that local dis-
cussion of Clam Bayou is nothing
but "political score-settling" and he
doesn't want his office to "enter into
a debate that centers on personal at-
tacks and seemingly has little to do
with the bayou."
But consider this: By listening
only to a few angry voices and can-
celling the planned summit meeting
on Clam Bayou, Rep. Kriseman is in
effect disenfranchising all the rest of
his constituents who care about the
health of this estuary. Interpret-
ing the "Clam Bayou issue" as noth-
ing more than a power struggle be-
tween the Davises and their critics is
a slap in the face to rest of us who
very much wanted that meeting as a
step toward solving a real and urgent
Many Gulfport residents (we are
two of them) would just like to see
something done as soon as possible
to keep additional sediment from
further choking the life out of Clam
Bayou. We're not involved in any
score settling, or debate winning, or
personal animus. We have no partic-
ular ax to grind. We don't own prop-
erty on the Bayou, and we don't keep
a boat there. We just want the state,
St. Petersburg, and our hometown of
Gulfport to take some action before
it's too late to matter, so as not to lose

Care Facility (ICF/DD) for children
with developmental disabilities, will
be the first served in this unique
club. PARC's Cottage is a residential
stepping stone for people with se-
vere developmental disabilities and
the ultimate goal, for some of these
children, is to grow up and have a
place of their own.
The Boys & Girls Clubs of the
Suncoast and PARC's collaboration
is being funded with grants from
the Jerome S. & Grace H. Murray
Foundation and the Pinellas
Community Foundation. Sport
Court of Tampa Bay is working with
PARC to provide a new soft-surface
floor for their gymnasium as well
as a new basketball court outside.
Papa John's is donating pizza for the
guests, and A1Garcia Entertainment
is donating DJ services.
As more donors are identified in
the community, the program will ex-
pand and serve other children and
youth with developmental disabili-
ties within the Suncoast region.
Currently the Boys & Girls Clubs of
the Suncoast work with over 6,000
youth annually and target improv-
ing education, character develop-
ment and health. PARC touches the
lives of over 700 people living with
a developmental disability each and
every day. Do not miss this inspira-
tional and first-in-the-nation event.

Tesa Golden dances to the beat of the Harlem Blues Band
Last Friday two midtown St. Petersburg residents celebrated 204 years of
living at the South Heritage Rehabilitation Ceiater on 22m' Avenue South.
Willie Mae Ealy turned 101 on February 12 and Alice Williams will celebrate
her 103"' birthday tomorrow (February 22).
Both ladies hail from Georgia but started calling St. Petersburg home many
years ago. They celebrated their birthdays with cake, punch, and the music
of Sterling Magee and his Harlem Blues Band. St. Petersburg mayor Rick
Baker stopped by to wish the ladies a happy birthday and briefly join the
band on guitar. South Heritage Rehabilitation Center residents and staff
alike joined the celebration with singing and dancing in the courtyard.
Willie Mae Ealy started her life in Burke County, Georgia in 1907 and
moved to St. Petersburg over 50 years ago. She loves cooking, gardening, and
going to church. Born in Camden County, Georgia in 1905. Alice Williams is
also a long-time St. Petersburg resident who worked on farms for much of
her life. She loves to sew.

Excerpts heard at the February 19, 2008
Gulfport city council meeting

"Anyone who goes down there can see for themselves that this is
a toxic waste dump created by the city of St. Petersburg with no
complaint from the city of Gulfport. Soon there isn't going to be
waterfront property there anymore. We have land plants growing
in what was once 8 feet of water. We need YOU to fight for us. -Al
Davis, Gulfport Water Watch to council regarding on-gomg concerns about
Clam Bayou.

"Yesterday was a big day at the Gulfport Rec Center. We had a
wonderful intergenerational day where us seniors played bingo
with kids and enjoyed a ice cream social with them. Many seniors
said they'd like to come play there more often!"-Janice Ryan, Gulfport

"I would like to nominate Mary Atkinson for the Spirit of Gulfport
Award. She has been a coach, a scout leader, a leader at Scout
Hall, one of the key members of the Gulfport Historical Society and
Gulfport Players. I'd venture to say that there is very little good
that has happened in this town that Mary hasn't been involved in
in some way." Michele IGng, council member.

"What I learned is that it is better to have them here than to meet
them in Washington." Mayor Michael Yakes regarding his recent trip
to Washington, DC with the Florida League of Cities.

"We can pass all sorts of resolutions, but we need to have one per-
son speaking to these agencies regarding Clam Bayou and other
environmental concerns to Gulfport residents. I'd like to suggest
that council member Bob Worthington be that person." Mayor Mi-
chael Yakes.

"I'd be happy to accept that challenge. And, I'd like to put together
an advisory committee of water minded people representing differ-
ent facets of our community. Council member Bob Worthington.

there was no answer, no answering
service, nothing. He hung up.
"No answer," he said to Ardis.
"I know that," Ardis said. "I've been
calling her all morning. What I want
to know is, what are you going to do
about it?"
Jeremy shrugged. "What do you
want me to do about it?"
"She's missing," Ardis answered.
"She always answers when I call.
Something's wrong."
This was all news to Jeremy, who
didn't even know that Lydia was still
seeing -the old guy. He thought the
relationship was waning, or had long
since waned.
"We don t know that, Jeremy said.
"All I know is that she didn't come
to work today and didn't call. I don't
know that anything has happened.
"What do you need," Ardis asked, "a
crime photo? Im telling you, some-
thing is wrong,
He was getting more and more agi-
tated, and Jeremy was beginning to
worry about his shop. The way Ardis
was pacing and waving his arms, he
was going to start knocking merchan-
dise off shelves pretty soon.
"Let's go outside." he said to Ardis,
holding the door open. "We can talk
some more." He also thought Ardis
would calm down, some, if he were in
a more pubhc place.
"We need to call the police," Ardis
said as he stepped out onto the side-
walk. "I know something is wrong -
let's call the pohce.
Of course, Marcus Lavery, the tailor
next door, was sitting on the bench in
front of his shop when they stepped
outside. He heard what Ardis said
and immediately got up and walked
over to them.
"What's going on?" he asked without
"Lydia is missing," Ardis said in a
rush. "I'm afraid harm has come to
Slavery nodded. "Maybe this alliga-
tor guy got to her," he said matter of
Oh, great, Lavery, Jeremy thought.
That's the way to calm him down.
Good work.

he no longer had any protection from
the blazing sun. Even in winter, the
Florida sun could be brutal at noon.
Plus, he had been at it for a couple of
hours, now, and that was enough for
one day. Too much, really, some days.
But there had been a lot of trash and
he hadn't wanted to stop.
It had been quite a while, now, since
he, or anybody, had organized any
kind of major cleanup in the bayou. So
there was plenty to pick up, as usual
- especially embedded in the roots of
the mangroves that circled the pe-
rimeter of the bayou and covered the
islands that had developed in its east-
ern half. The frequent rains and the
St. Petersburg drainage system that
emptied into the bavou made sure of
But enough was enough. He had
filled several bags and stationed
them within easy reach of his route
back to the canoe launch site. He had
about half a trash bag left to fill, then
he would call it a day and head back
in. There was always tomorrow, and
there would always be more trash.
At this point, he had reached the far
side of the bayou and was working
along the eastern edge of the islands
closest to St. Petersburg. For some
reason, it didn't look too bad over
here today.
But then, he saw something that
looked very bad, indeed.
George Ardis burst through the front
door of Jeremy's shop. "Where's Lyd-
ia?" he demanded.
Jeremy shook his head. "Don't
know," he said. "She didn't come in
this morning and she didn't call."
Ardis was obviously very agitated.
"What are you going to do about it?"
he asked.
Jeremy didn't know what to say, so
he picked up the phone, glanced at a
piece of paper he had tucked under it,
and dialed Lydia's cell phone num-
The phone rang several times but

The morning was over and

21 Jeremy still had not heard
from Lydia. Not a word.
No phone call, no message, nothing.
He wasn't anxious anymore, he was
How dare she? he asked himself,
over and over. Who does she think
she is?
It was one thing to quit a job. Ev-
erybody has the right to do that. It's
a free country, after all, not a slave-
labor camp. If she doesn't want to
work at the shop anymore, that's her
business and her decision,
But to do it without telling him?
Without the courtesy of even a phone
call? That's what really frosted his
pumpkin. After all these months of
working together, he thought he de-
served better.
Hell, he didn't even care how she
did it. She could stick her head in the
door and flash him the finger, for all
he cared. Just tell him something! Do
For probably the tenth time this
morning, Jeremy told himself to calm
down. Cool it, he thought. This is not
a major event in your life. This is just
a case of an employee not showing up
for work. And a not-very-dependable
employee at that.
Give it some more time, he thought.
It's only noon. And she was upset.
Which she, indeed, was, the last
time he saw her. Scared, even. So he
convinced himself that he needed to
cut her a little slack.
That's why he hadn't called her yet. .
Not to mention that he didn't Avant to
call her. He didn't want to be the one
to make the call. He wanted her to do
it, call him, tell him that she wasn't
coming back. That was her job, her
duty as an employee. He'd be damned
if he was going to give her the upper

Town shores
Opens New Park
In the spirit of going "green" and
their true patriotism, Town Shores
developed a new park for its resi-
dents and visitors called Celebration
Park. The park which exhibits the
U.S. flag 40' high in the center of a
new fountain is sure to catch the eye
of everyone who passes through. All
plants and trees planted are Florida
friendly and the water from the foun-
tain is recycled through. Pathway
lights will be set-up to light path-
ways. Residents can also purchase a
brick to engrave with their names or
the names of their loved ones or even
their favorite pet. The park itself has
improved this triangle area which
use to be a dog walk and is sure to
add value to the units and pleasure
to the residents.

Code Enforcement
in Stetson
Code Enforcement continues to work
in Gulfport's Section One, also known
as the Stetson Area. The Stetson
Area comprises the northwest por-
tion of Gulfport and generally ex-
tends south from 7 Avenue South to
Gulfport Boulevard and east from 64
Street to 58 Street.
To find out more about Gulfport's
Code Enforcement activities, please

Gulfport Teen Council members and Boca Clega High School students Christina Sechrist,
16 (1), Darcy Reed, 17, and Katisha Diab, 16, have fun between customers at the conces-
sions stand at last Friday's "Theater on the Bay." The stand helps fund the Council which
participates in coastal cleanup and other community improvement projects.
Last weekend, the City of Gulfport continued its third Friday tradition of
showing family-oriented films at "Theater on the Bay." "Madagaspar," a
DreamWorks Animation feature about a group of animals trying to find their
way to Africa from their home in New York's Central Park Zoo, made its de-
but on the baseball field at the Gulfport Rec Center to the cheers of kids and
adults alike.
While folks set up chairs and blankets around the diamond, members of
the Gulfport Teen Council set up their traditional concessions stand featuring
soft drinks and popcorn. The money raised from the stand goes to fund Teen
Council trips and other endeavors, but the movie, as always, was free and
open to the public.

Changes to Student
Interview Policy
In accordance with Superintendent
of Schools Clayton Wilcox's wishes.
the Gulfport pohee department will
now interview students differently.

et c ta t6jrssch 1dres o
ficer and request to speak to a stu-
dent. The student would be brought
to the office for the interview, which
was often conducted without parents
being contacted. Although the St. Pe-
tersburg Times reported that the law
requires police to notify parents in

sucheas s, pm or s 1 at
a child's request to have his or parent
presentIT 1 f ointTra w is on

considered when an officer conducts
an interview," said Gulfport Police
Lieutenant, Robert Vincent. Vincent
also said that the law only requires
parental notification when police ar-
rest a child.
Regardless of what the law al-
lows, the police chiefs collectively
agreed to comply with the school
board policy. Pending a change to
the written agreement already in
place between schools and police,
Gulfport's officers recently changed
to their investigation methods. Now
officers must make an appointment
and go through a school administra-
tor whenever they plan to interview
a student on school property about a
crime that occurred off school proper-
ty. The administrator will attempt to
contact a parent and invite the par-
ent to participate in the interview.
If the parent cannot be reached, of if
the parent chooses not to participate,
then the administrator will sit in on
the interview as an observer.
The new rules will likely be a bit
more relaxed for the School Resource
Officers, who work with the students
all day, every day. In addition, offi-
cers may make exceptions for cases
when a parent is suspected of com-
mitting a crime against the child, as
well as for emergencies when officers
must get information immediately.

Student Drug Arrest
On Monday, February 11th, police
arrested Ramell Mitchell for posses-
sion of marijuana with intent to dis-

tribute on school property. A school
administrator witnessed what he
thought was a drug transnetion he-
tween Ramell and another student.
School Resource Officer Steven
Boltran intervened and found the
191itchell had several small baggies
of marijuana and ensh in his pocket.
Ramell and the other student both
denied any kind of transaction, but
the evidence supported the higher
level felony charge associated with
the apparent intent to distribute.
Because it occurred at school, strict-
er penalties could apply. Mitchell,
16, lives in St. Petersburg.

Two Resource Officers?
At the beginning of the current
school year. Gulfport Police went
back into the business of providing a
school resource officer (SRO) for Boen
Ciega High School. All high schools
and middle schools in Pinellas Coun-
ty have at least one full-time offi-
cer assigned to the campus during
school hours, and up until this year,
the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office
staffed Boca Ciega with two depu-
ties. When the school board and the
sheriff could not come to terms on
a new agreement. Gulfport stepped
in. Officer Steven Beltran has been
on the job at Bogie for the entire
school year, and he has received ac-
colades from his supervisors as well
as school administrators.
But Gulfport police have had an-
other type of resource officer for
many years. Officer Lindsay White
just started work as the 10uth Re-
source Officer (YRO), a position va-
cant since last year due to a hiring
freeze. Although she will not worl<
full-time at a school like the SRO,
she will frequent the various cam-
puses in Gulfport.
"Her primary mission is to enhance
the image of police from the youth
perspective," said Sergeant Robert
Burkhart, wilo supervises Gulfport's
investigations squad. Because Offi-
cer White will also investigate many
youth-related crimes, runaways,
and gang offenses, she has been as-
signed to Burkhart's unit. White
wI wesr 01 9 w tdoc sa

lifor is n isacesidin cetroWBure
11as a unique job, and her enthusi-
asm will be a great attribute."
Although Officer White will work
out of the pohee office in the 49th
Street Neighborhood Center, don't
be surprised if you can't find her
there. She will be spending most of
her time at schools, the recreation
center, and meeting with kids on the
streets of Gulfport.
