Gulfport Attorney Stays
By Cathy Salustri
"We have chickens and we have other issues that are
there. Quite frankly, I don't think we would run out
of work," Mayor Mike Yakes said at last Thursday's
special council meeting devoted to deciding whether
or not the city would pursue hiring a full-time
attorney. Yakes was responding to Councilwoman
Judy Ryerson's doubts that Gulfport had enough
work for a full time attorney.
Yakes suggested the city pay an attorney no more

Final Gulfport
Budget Worshop
Highlights Cuts
By Greg Stemm
One night prior to the final passage
of the 2008/09 Gulfport city budget
(see related story by Cathy Salustri)
members of the public and council got
a detailed review of all the adjustments
made to the document. Suggestions
from the council members, including
a five percent across the board cut
proposed by council member Judy
Ryerson, were included along with
recommendations from staff and
resulted in nearly $450,000 in cuts
from last year's budget.
The trimmed budget resulted in a
lower-millage rate than had originally
been discussed by council. The final
rate established was 3.4742.
Highlights of the adjustments to
the budget include a reduction of
$100,000 originally budgeted for street
resurfacing and brick restoration;
$110,000 reductions in both the water
pipe infrastructure and sewer pipe
infrastructure replaces for a total cut
of $220,000; a five percent reduction in
all operating expenses resulting in a
savings of $84,720. With the exception
of the elimination of two school crossing
guards at. a savings of $22,530 no cuts
were made in personnel.
There were some additions to the
budget. The position of Social Worker
at the Gulfport Senior Center, originally
targeted for a reduction to a part time
position was maintained at a full time
level. The Summer Teen program at
the Gulfport Rec Center was reinstated
after originally being cut from the
budget. Also, an additional planner
was added to Community Development
department at a cost of $55,000.
A number of members of the
public congratulated the council on
accomplishing a very difficult task this
year. Several complimented acting city
manager Jim O'Reilly for being able to

Dawn Foster, St. Pete: "I feel like if the Government does do this, it should be for the average
working person, NOT the CEO's of these big Wall Street companies. But I don't think we have a
choice; but that money should be used to help the people in trouble, those people who have lost
S' their jobs and homes. Every day I see more and more people begging on the street corners; it's
getting worse and worse. I work in the hospitality industry and people are really watching their
money. Everywhere is slow and nobody's spending anything. And those CEO's who I heard want
those giant bonuses? They should get NOTHING! It's not fair and it's sad that so many people
are in such a terrible financial fix because of big business' greed. I think the Congress WILL
pass this bail-out package- they really have no choice. But it HAS to help the American people."

Mary Stover, Gulfport: "We got ourselves into a real mess....I wish there was another way .
out of it, but it looks like it's the only way we will be able to help the middle class. But I do NOT
want to bail out the CEO's and Wall Street... I want this money to go to help the middle class. So
far, it seems that all the laws passed have either benefited the VERY rich or the very poor. The
wealthiest people and companies get huge tax breaks and then the CEOs want bonuses? What
happened to the people that built this country? The working class are the ones most in trouble
and they seem to be forgotten. If this legislation passes, I want to see it help ALL the people,
not just the greedy Wall Street gurus. They offered an impossible dream to people, told them
they could afford a house that everyone involved KNEW they couldn't, but gave them the money
anyway, all to make the money on the transaction. All they'll get is a free pass to do it all again!"

.w- Mike Kruger, Gulfport: "I don't think it should be a give-away, which is what it actually is.
We're BUYING bad debt, instead of loaning the banks the money to cover THEIR bad debts.
What I dislike most about it is that there are millions of people who are suffering.because the
? loan packages they got are now no longer affordable and THEY aren't getting rescued. Any
rescue for them will be totally coincidental; it won't directly affect the private person who
really needs it the most. Maybe as' the market rebounds, it might have an effect on them.
But it was all tied into the housing market. Banks and lenders lent money based on the fact
that they all assumed the housing values would keep going up! But when the bubble burst,
the banks found themselves at a loss and now they want a buy-out. But the CEO's should
NOT be allowed to walk away, with bonuses in their golden parachutes... that should NOT
happen. This bail-out is to help the American people who are in financial trouble, NOT the
people who ran the industry into the ground and THEN want to take MORE out of it... If
I ran my mechanical engineering department and ruined it like they did their businesses,
I wouldn't be able to walk away with a big, fat bonus; I'd be walking out empty-handed!"

Mike Whitman, Gulfport; owner of Whitco Insurance Agency: "First of all, I don't think H .
that it is a bail-out; I think it's a buy-out, and there really is no other choice. But I think there ? . :.
are two reasons why it didn't pass the other day. One is every Senator is more worried about b'' '
their job than what is right for the country. All that petty infighting doesn't help get legisla-
tion passed! Second, the people who are protesting to those same Senators are the ones that
have bought more than they can afford and now are stuck. But what they fail to realize is that
if the banks don't have the liquidity to loan money, it will be harder and harder to get loans
and credit. As a small business owner myself, I need to be able to access a credit line to keep
cash flowing into my company. The banks are lowering the amount they will lend to small
businesses and credit card companies are reducing their credit lines, some very drastically!
Some businesses can't get credit. That squeezes the small businesses, because they can't get
the capitol to stay afloat, if times get tough. And they ARE tough right now. I totally under-
stand that people in foreclosure are so upset, but if the banks don't get bought out, that money
won't trickle down to help them. Money is like water, it trickles down; it doesn't run uphill."

What is a Guardianship?
Part 2
This article is a continuation of
our previous article regarding "What
Is A Guardianship?"
If someone is an adult resident of the
State of Florida, that person is poten-
tially qualified to serve as a guardian
in Florida. Likewise, a close relative
of award who is not a resident of the
State of Florida may also be qualified
to serve as a guardian. However, if
a proposed guardian is incapable of
performing the duties of a guardian
or has been convicted of a felony, that
person cannot be appointed by the
Probate Court as a guardian. Gener-
ally, the Probate Court will give care-
ful consideration to the wishes and
desires expressed by a ward as to the
selection of a guardian.
Guardians are required to be bond-
ed and may be required to complete a

Court-approved training program for
guardians. Guardians are required
by the Probate Court to be repre-
sented by a lawyer. All guardianship
reports are presented to the Probate
Court for review and approval. In
the event a guardian does not carry
out his or her duties in a responsible
manner, the guardian is subject to
removal by the Probate Court.
Guardianship is an expensive and
time-consuming process. Use of less
severe alternatives to guardianship is
highly recommended. For example,
the use of a durable power of attor-
ney, a health care directive and/or a
revocable living trust may eliminate
the need for a guardianship thereby
reducing the costs and time delay as-
sociated with guardianships.

Joanie Clarkin -A reverse mortgage specialist on your side.
By Shelly Wilson ..

T here 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
there. With a reverse mortgage, you
can turn the value of your home into
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
or even food," says Clarkin. "They
had taken out a regular equity loan
and they had this huge payment.
Through a reverse mortgage, we were
able to not only repay their loan, but

helping people like this. It's what I've done my whole life!"

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
relations for Pinellas County Schools,
Joanie Clarkin has learned a little
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.
"I'm a 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's a low inter-
est, no risk retirement plan. You've
worked all your life now it's time to
enjoy it!"

National Fire
Prevention Week
Prevent Home Fires is thit year's
theme for National Fire Prevention
Week which takes place from October
5 through 11. City of Gulfport Fire
Department has partnered with the
U.S. Fire Administration (USFA)
on the Smoking & Home Fires
Campaign to focus on the number
one cause of preventable home fire
deaths: smoking.
Most smoking fires happen when
cigarettes are left in ashtrays, hot
ashes are dumped into the trash, or
someone falls asleep while smoking.
If a person falls asleep while smoking,
the chances .of safely escaping drop
considerably. Think about it: The
resulting fire has time to spread
around the sleeping person and
any planned escape routes quickly
become blocked by fire. Cigarettes
don't know how to burn, safely or
when you are asleep.
The U.S. Fire Administration has
suggestions on how to stop the fire
before it starts:
It's better to smoke outside. Put
your cigarette out in a can filled with
If you smoke inside your home, use
big, deep, sturdy ashtrays with a
stable base.
Really put your cigarette out. Don't
just tap it into the ashtray.
Fill your ashtray with water to soak
the butts and ashes before emptying
Don't smoke if you are drowsy, and
never smoke in bed.
If people smoke while at your home,
check for cigarette butts under or
near furniture before you call it a

pick up the ball when city manager Tom Brobeil went on extended sick leave.
"It is a pleasure not to start my comments with a complaint," said Mark
Epstein. "You've done a great job and I'd like to commend Mr. O'Reilly for how
he has taken the lead at a particularly difficult time, When you look at the
legal fees in this budget, I do think that now is the time for the city to take up
the discussion of having our own in-house attorney."
Mayor Michael Yakes reminded everyone that Gulfport is debt free and has
a 43 percent reserve balance. "It's good to know that if we.had an emergency
that we would be in a position to pay for it. We function like a large full service
city. You won't find many others in Florida of our size that do what we do and
are on-sound financial footing. I'd like to thank everyone for a yeoman's job
on this."

Gulfport Council Passes Budget
By Cathy Salustri
After several thorough budget workshops, Gulfport city council unanimously
passed the Fiscal Year 2008-2009 budget at the September 18 meeting. The
final budget taxes property owners $3.47 per $1,000 of their property's assessed
value, a nine percent decrease from last year.
Councilmember Bob Worthington recommended the city use caution before
spending all the money Council approved in the coming year.
"Maybe we can't remove that $10,000 (for the web site) since, we've set the
budget but possibly not use it until we investigate it," he suggested.
"Judy, you are the person of the hour," Mayor Mike Yakes praised
Councilmember Judy Ryerson, who helped make cuts in the budget. Finally
the Mayor added one more thank you:
T'I'd like to thank the public. You are the customer. You are the people that
drive this city," Yakes said prior to adjourning the meeting.
Council will start looking at the 2010 budget next month. For more
information please contact acting city manager Jim O'Reilly at 893-1010.

Recycling Day in Gulfport

By Leigh Clifton
Pinellas County Solid Waste Management, Creative Recycling of Tampa,
E.Q. of Tampa (Environmental Quality) and the City of Gulfport combined
forces last weekend to collect electronics, chemicals, paints and insecticides
from local residents who had no further use for them.
Chemicals are separated by compatibility and waste stream, according to Tim
Dean, Project Manager of EQ Florida. These include paint thinners, pesticides,
cleaning solvents, pool chemicals and household cleaning solvents which are
combined in big black drums, according to their flammability. The flammable
ones are used for fuel blending in Alabama and Arkansas; the large tanks'
refuse is run thru a series of screens, separating out the larger, more solid
particles which are then sent to large cement kilns, and the resultant waste
is re-melted back into liquid fuel. The water-based latex paint that is brought
in is separated from the cans, which are burned to ash and recycled. The City
of Gulfport uses their city trailer to haul the paints to Pinellas County Waste
Management in Pinellas Park, according to Doug Addis, Street and Sanitation
Supervisor for the City of Gulfport.
Creative Recycling of Tampa is responsible for the electronics; TVs, scanners,
computer monitors, keyboards, radios, DVD players and stereos. These
products are crushed by huge machines, which separate out the aluminum,
copper wire, and plastic parts. What is left is put on a huge conveyor belt at the
plant and then shredded. Over 98% of an appliance dropped off is recycled.
"We see more electronics dropped off every year," Addis says, "because
people are upgrading their TVs to flat screens, getting new monitors for their
computers and buying the latest DVD players."
Last year, 397 people dropped off recyclables, including 5,051 pounds of
chemicals, 11,580 pounds of latex paint, and 34,347 pounds of electronics,
according to a Pinellas County Solid Waste Management spokesperson.
Supervisor Judy Kujawa says that this year's numbers for participants was
down slightly; 384 cars came thru the recycle line last Saturday. They won't
know the final tally for a few more weeks, as the Tampa companies weigh their
take and report back to Kujawa and Pinellas County Waste Management for
the final count.
It was good to see the high level of participation from the City of Gulfport's
residents and good to know that so many are trying to be more environmentally
conscious. Dave Cornell, of Gulfport, brought some chemicals and electronics
by, including a scanner that worked perfectly, but didn't fit with his new
operating system.
"It works great, but I just can't use it," he said somewhat ruefully. "So at.
least it will get recycled." A lot of other people felt the same way on Saturday,
too. Green is good.

Senator Barack Obama Rally in Dunedin

By Leigh Clifton

Senator Barack Obama came to a
Democratic Rally event at Knology Park,
in Dunedin, Florida on Wednesday,
September 24, 2008. Speaking to a
crowd of almost 12,000, who had stood
in line for hours, he described to the
crowd his proposal for a newer, better
"You've been hearing a lot on these
negative ads, about how I'm going to
raise your taxes. I am NOT going to
raise your taxes,. "I am going to LOWER
taxes for 95% of America's working
families. These taxes would be LESS
than what the American family paid
under Ronald Reagan. And for senior
citizens who are on a fixed income, or
who make under $50,000 a year, there
will be NO TAXES AT ALL!"
Calling McCain and Palin's approach
as "but of touch with policy AND
philosophy," Obama further stressed
that America needs to invest in itself.
"America prospers when ALL
Americans prosper,' he said."We need
to invest in NEW technology and when
I'm elected I will invest 15 million
dollars a year over the next decade in
renewable energy. America NEEDS
independence from Big Oil. We need to
build fuel-efficient cars HERE, in the
USA, NOT overseas. We do NOT need
to continue another four years of the
same rhetoric as the past eight years!"
Stressing education, Obama promised
higher pay for teachers and ,better
standards so that every child could
obtain a "world class education."
"No more teaching to the test," he

proclaimed. "It doesn't work and our
children are sadly lagging behind other
countries' education standards."
Another incentive Obama revealed
was a tuition credit of $4,000 for any
person who served in some form of
National service; military, community
or overseas volunteering. This would
insure, he explained, that the nation's
citizens would invest in themselves,
while serving the needs of others.
Calling on America to join him in
what will be "a LOT of work" Obama
nonetheless declared that America was
ready for reform, a new direction after
the last abysmal eight years.''We will
ALL have to work together to do this",
he said."It will be fiscally hard, but
do-able. I want to go thru the Federal
Budget line by line; if I see programs
in it that don't work, they should be
Addressing the issue of health care,
Obama declared that ALL Americans
deserve affordable, accessible health
care. Speaking of his own Mother's
cancer diagnosis and difficulty in
negotiating with her health care
provider, he said that major reforms
are needed, so that NO patient should
have to make a choice on whether they
spend money for food OR life-saving
After a speech of almost 45 minutes,
Obama left the podium to thunderous
applause and stopped to shake hands
with the crowd that had waited and
gathered to meet him afterwards.

than $130,000 and that a
full-time attorney "might not
want" benefits. He also said a
full-time city attorney would
not require any additional
staff, paralegal, or a law
Ryerson, who used to work
in personnel, estimated the
cost of providing benefits as
1/3 the cost of the employee's
salary and added, "I can't
imagine the city attorney
wanting less than the other
two department head gets.
I can't imagine somebody
coming in no matter Where
they're at on their career-
and not wanting basic health
benefits and things, and they
all add up."
While council members
Bob Worthington, Judy
Ryerson and Mary Stull
favored keeping a part-time
attorney, Yakes favored
a full-time attorney. Only
councilperson Michele King
seemed adamant that the
city needed to fire Driscoll at
Thursday's meeting.
"Maybe what we should
be looking at here is just to
appoint a temporary attorney
to take over this position and
do the research and take
the time to decide what we
need," King said, adding,
"Have I lost confidence in,
the city attorney? I have.
The fact that he and the city
manager sat in a closed room
and wrote the resolution for
the sick leave that put the
city at responsibility for an
illness..." King went on to
chronicle her issues with
Driscoll, ending by telling
the other council members
that "it's time this council
listened to the people and I
don't see that happening."
King also said that a full-
time attorney would save the
city money despite contrary
numbers presented her by
,city staff. When Ryerson told
council, "I'm not convinced
there's enough work for a
full time attorney nor am I
convinced we can financially
afford a full time attorney,

and as much as I would like
to believe $130,000 would
be the maximum I'm not
convinced that-it would be,"
King responded by saying,
"We're actually paying
a part time attorney the
same amount of money were
paying a full time attorney;
in fact, we're paying more. If
we hired a full time attorney
we'd be paying less then we
are now, so I don't see that as
a good argument."
City staff as well as other
council members explained
again to King that the city,
paid Driscoll less

"You just interrupted me," Driscoll
reminded her. Yakes interrupted the
exchange, asked them to stop, and
permitted Driscoll to finish speaking.
, The council ultimately agreed that
acting city manager Jim O'Reilly,
who said little during the meeting
itself, would write a letter to the St.
Petersburg Bar and ask if they would
charge--and if so, how much-to
study whether or not Gulfport needed
a full-time on-site attorney.
"I do not need a study to change how
I feel. I will not support payment for
this study," Yakes told council.
"There's something here nobody's
talking about. I just wonder what
that hidden agenda actually is," King
"As do I," Worthington agreed.

What Citizens Said:
* "My feeling is as a tax payer ... is
whether or not you like the present
city attorney or whether you need a
full time attorney. Let's stay on the
issue- the fiscal issue. We should be
thinking in terms of reducing staff

and overhead rather than adding.
Whether city attorney should be a
full time job, I think that's a valid
question. My thinking is that it's
not anywhere near, a full time job.
If you think [by hiring a full-time
attorney] the outside legal costs are
not going to occur you are mistaken;
no attorney has expertise in every
area. There's no way one attorney can
handle every issue. Also I think the
Pasadena Properties legal fee is an
aberration-it's the first time such a
thing happened in 18 years. It's going
to cost almost double to have a full
time attorney. We. Can. Not. Afford.
That. Today." --Bob Newcomb *
"We just spent days and days
agonizing over the budget penny by
penny. I think it's responsible for you
guys to make sure you're not going to
be spending more money unless you
can prove we'll get the same level of
service." --Cindy Davis
* "We were here almost a year ago,
had the same issues, and I think it's
time that the city make a decision.
I would hope that make a decision
whether you want a full time attorney

or not and not delay it for studies.
Right now what we need to do is get
on with this up or down. I personally
haven't seen anything .from Mr.
Driscoll rather than rather clear,
succinct, legal answers." --Al Davis
* "It's very confusing to be sitting
out in the audience because it seems
you're talking about two separate
issues. Councilman King seems to be
dissatisfied with our current attorney.
But it seems that only one person
feels that way, so it 'seems to me
that this isn't the time and it seems
council feels that way too so I don't
know why we keep going on and on
when it seems to me you have a clear
opinion from where I sit." -- Beverly
* "I think a lot of us are missing
the issue here. It should not be
about personalities. I don't think it is
about personalities. Facts are facts.
It's clear that part time. attorney is
costing is much more money than a
full time attorney. It's clear that the
city attorney has a blank checkbook."

Doggie Paws Rescue
Needs Volunteers
Florida Doggie Paws Rescue, Inc.
is an all-volunteer foster-based or-
ganization. This grass roots rescue
organization was formed one year
ago by seven dedicated people with
one common goal: to save the dogs.
The group's mission is to respon-
sibly rescue, rehabilitate, foster
and find permanent loving homes
for unwanted, abandoned and
abused small-to-medium breed dogs
throughout the state of Florida.
The Rescue was established at
the end of January 2007 and by the
end of December, over 130 dogs had
been rescued, and over 100 of them
had been placed in their "forever
homes". Most of the dogs came from
Levy County Animal. Services where
animals are euthanized after only six
days if someone doesn't come to their
aid. All of these rescued animals have
turned into happy, healthy, well-
adjusted dogs because of the love,
care and commitment of the volun-
teers of Florida Doggie Paws Rescue.
The Rescue promotes the reali-
ties of pet ownership, educating the
public concerning pet overpopula-
tion and the importance of spay-
ing and neutering pets; humane
treatment of animals through edu-
cation and public awareness; and
microchipping pets so that a lost
pet can be reunited with its family.
Volunteers are always needed to
accomplish the Rescue's mission.
Foster homes for the dogs are an
essential part of the Rescue. In ad-
dition, there are many other tasks

Our Knowledge & Professional Products Will Help You Do It Right The 1st Time



By Cathy Salustri

SSmells of potato pancakes and frothy
beer competed for attention at the first
weekend of the German-American
Society's Oktoberfest in Pinellas Park.
No one in the crowd under the tent or
in the hall seemed to care that it wasn't
quite October yet.
s The Infoplease.com web site says that
~ Oktoberfest started when the Bavarian
prince Ludwig wanted his subjects
to help celebrate his marriage to the
Saxony-Hildburghausen princess
S Therese on October 12, 1810. 40,000
'o t people helped celebrate the union at a
horse race, and the prince decided to
hold the race again the next year, thus
S : starting the Oktoberfest tradition.
S., Saturday night the German-American
Society didn't have any horse races
What is Oktoberfest without the German but the crowd partied on, undeterred.
garb, and music. Children and seniors alike joined in
traditional German dances, a veritable
feast of German food, and, of course, beer.
The Oktoberfest continues this weekend at the Society's hall, located at 8098
66th Street North.

Decor Studio 1: Friendly, Personalized Design in a One Stop Shop

By Greg Stemm

IF YOU'VE ever considered us-
ing an interior designer but have
been under the misguided notion
that they all have attitude or are
too expensive for the average hom-
eowner, then you need to meet Linda
Parker, Joanne Albritton and Jeffrey
Hartman with D6cor Studio 1. They
are unpretentious, easy going, friend-
ly and say they can work with just
about any reasonable budget. .
"There is this perception out there
that you can't afford a design firm,"
said Parker. "But you can. There
are so many older homes and condos'
out there that need updating and we
can work with a client to do things in
stages. We had one client recently
that came in with a quote" from
another design firm and we were
able to offer him better service for
thousands of dollars less."
Albritton points out that the studio
is a full service design firm so clients
don't have to go from place to place to
find materials, fabrics, tile, furniture
or design services, it's all offered
under one roof.
"Because we have a team all
assembled right here we are able to
offer a full range of services and that
saves clients time and money," she
The firm specializes in custom
interior design window treatments,
furnishings, rugs, accessories, and
offers complimentary initial design
consultation. Their full service
abilities also means that they
offer a wide selection of outdoor
furniture, carpeting and accessories
to customize outdoor living on your
lanai, pool deck or cabana. They
coordinate design and installation
of pools, pavers and landscaping to
complete the ambiance of the casual
Florida outdoor lifestyle.
Parker says the two most frequently
remodeled rooms are the kitchen and
bathrooms. She says that Decor
Studio 1 has many years of experience
in both and will work closely with a
client to meet their objectives.
Decor Studio 1 isownedbyArrowhead
Point prQperties and for many years
served as an in-house design firm for
their developments. The firm became
open to the public just a few months
ago. The association with a builder

The professional, friendly team at Decor Studio offers a one stop solution
to all your design needs. From front to back, Joanne Albritton, Linda
Parker and Jeff Hartman.

means that Decor Studio 1 can offer
custom building services including
one stop shopping for remodeling
or new construction projects. They
offer everything from cabinetry to
plumping fixtures to flooring.
All three team members have 20
years or more experience. Linda
began her career designing gift shops
in New York in the 1970s. After
moving to Florida in 1976 she worked
for the Arthur Rutenberg franchise
for more than 15 years. Joanne is
a Tampa native and also began her
career in design in the '70s. Jeff spent
16 years in Vermont as a designer
and has worked in Florida for the
past nine.
Older homes are a favorite of all three
team members. Joanne is a former
board member of the City of Sarasota
Historic Preservation committee arid
the Downtown Design Assistance
Team for the City of Sarasota. Jeff
restored an historic Vermont farm
house built in 1820 from the ground
floor up. The three are currently doing
work on a restored 1924 bungalow on
Davis Island in Tampa.
"We also specialize in condos," said
Parker. "It takes a special expertise
to understand the regulations, and
limitation such as elevator size, etc.
Fortunately, we have worked arena
for years and have a good grasp
of what works best in that kind of

"I consider myself very lucky to be
able to work in a profession that I'm
passionate about,"says Hartman. "I
like the people I work with and I love
my job. I think that shows through
to clients in our dealings with them
Jeff, Linda and Joanne are all dog
lovers with eight canines between the
three of them. In between talking
about design services they love to
share "doggie stories." They say that
as pet lovers it makes it easier to go
into a client's home that might have
dogs or cats of their own.
"We love to help people with all
their decorating needs," said Parker.
"Whether a client just wants to update
a kitchen or a bath or get new window
treatments to a complete entire home
redesign, we pride ourselves in giving
the highest quality work regardless.
