GulfportGeckofest Lives
on with Geckoween

By Leigh Clifton
David Lemke and Lacey Glass dress up as Dog the Bounty
Hunter and his wife Beth at the Gecko ween dance at the Casino
Friday night. About 100 people donned makeup and costumes
and danced to DJ music. Gift certificates to local businesses
were given out as prizes for the most creative costumes which
included witches, scuba guys, hippies and devils. Even Sarah
Palin showed up, although "her" legs were quite hairy. According
to new Gulfport Merchant's Association President Leslie
Gilchrist, the money raised will go to the Gulfport Senior Center,
the Gulfport Rec Center and ASAP, the aids-related division of
Hospice. "This is just an extension of Geckofest," Leslie said.
"It's yet another way we can give back to our community."
Canned donations for the Senior Center Food Bank were also
graciously accepted.

The first question, a charter
amendment that will "require voter
approval of only those comprehensive

of structure, or which add or change

point margin, garnering exactly 60
percent of the vote.

recycle in style. The city voted
unanimously to purchase a new
recycling truck. The truck the city
currently uses, Interim City Manager
Jim O'Reilly told council, has some
mechanical problems. The new truck
will have one more bin than the
current truck so the city could add
another recyclable to its collection
Although resident Margarete
Tober complained that the city will
spend more than it budgeted for the
truck, O'Reilly said that the overage
fell within 10% of the budgeted
amount. According to city purchasing
guidelines, O'Reilly said, city officials
may spend up to 10% more than
the budgeted amount on a bid item
without having to get additional price
quotes. The city budgeted $192,500
for the truck by will spend $194,853.
"I think we should buy a used truck
that's been reconditioned, just to
keep with the spirit of recycling,"
Mayor Mike Yakes joked.
Gulfport currently recycles plastic,
light paper, aluminum and some
glass. State law requires cities to
offer recycling but offers no monies
to help defray the costs of collecting

The Gulfport Community Players
will be kicking off their new 2009-
2010 season with a delightful
comedy written by James Sherman
entitled, "Beau Jest" on Thursday,
November 5 at Gulfport's Hickman
Theater. The play centers around
a nice Jewish girl who happens to
be dating a guy who is not Jewish,
although her parents don't know
this. In order to keep this fact from
them, she hires an escort to pose as
her boyfriend. They all meet one
another for a nice dinner and then
things get a little more complicated
and funny from there on out.
The play's director, Victor Carr,
has chosen another excellent cast for
the play including Rebekah Sweet,
Jim Russell, Ben Sandrowitz, Rikki
Lewis, Walter Raine, and Kelly
Smith. Join the Players for a night or
an afternoon of outstanding comedy
from Gulfport's original community
theater group.
Tickets are just $15 each and
are available at Eileen's Resale
Boutique, the Beach Bazaar, the
Gulfport Casino, the Gulfport
Chamber of Commerce, at the door,
or by calling them at 727-322-0316
for advance sales.

Holy Name 32nd Annual Oktoberfest

Oktoberfest last Thursday night. Her grandfather Kenny Stanton holds onto her from

By Leigh Clifton
Most Holy Name of Jesus Christ Church held their 32nd annual Oktoberfest
over the Halloween weekend. Proceeds from the event are used to subsidize
the Catholic children of the parish who wish to attend private Catholic school.
Holy Name's own school was closed due to minimal attendance in 2003.
According to parish manager Eileen Plasse, the combination of the failing
economy and Halloween made for a slower than usual attendance this year.
The ride vendors were booked every other weekend in October, so Halloween
weekend was the only one available for the celebration. Still, it was a successful
one. Plasse said that every year is like a homecoming with the community;
often people get to see friends they haven't seen in years.
"We're so grateful for the wonderful support Gulfport has given us over
the years," Plasse said. "The City officials have been really helpful as well.
Although attendance was down, we still view our Oktoberfest as a success!"
This was the first Oktoberfest for Mandrea Byrd and her family. Her eight
month old daughter Yahirah's baby carriage was filled with stuffed animals
and toys that her daddy Charles had won for her.
"We are really enjoying this tonight," Byrd said.
Next February, Holy Name will be celebrating their 50th year as a parish.

D yo t it s be m

Carlos Yepes, St. Pete: "Absolutely
yes, I think it should be mandatory
for the schools to notify parents about
the potential risk of infection. It would
possibly keep more kids from getting
the flu, if parents could make an in-
formed decision. I have a 24 year old
daughter, who is pregnant and a lot
of the warnings have been for preg-
nant women to get vaccinated. But
my worry is that there just hasn't
been enough testing, especially on
the effect the vaccine might have for
these women and their babies. My
daughter read all the material and
did as much research as she could. In
the end, she got the Swine Flu shot.
It made her lethargic and sick for the
first day. After that, she had no prob-
lems with it, so now she feels like she
and her baby will be protected."

Susan Beai, St. Pete: "I have a 12
year old son and I would definitely
want to know if someone in his school
had contracted Swine Flu. I feel that
the school board should have an ac-
tion plan to handle this situation
and I think all parents have a right
to know. Having said that, I'm still
not sure whether or not I would get
my child vaccinated; I need more in-
formation about the vaccine itself.
It makes me extremely nervous that
it's a live virus used for the vaccine.
I don't think we've been given nearly
enough information about it."

Tim Brown, So.Pasadena: "Yes, I
do think the schools should let the
parents know if there's a possibility
that their child could be exposed to
the flu. Parents have the absolute
right to be informed and to know
if someone in their kid's school has
been infected. I have a 10 year old
son and he's going to get vaccinat-
ed. He's already had other flu shots
before with no ill effects, so I'm not
worried about him getting the vac-

Tess Lafeye, Gulfport: "I think everybody should be told. I actually got the
Swine Flu and it was really awful. If one kid at a school gets it, it can spread to
everybody and those sick kids bring it home to the parents, who can then spread
it at their workplace. I have three grandkids in school and if someone at their
school had the Swine Flu, I would expect my son to get a note about it. But I told
my son that there is absolutely no way those kids are getting a Swine Flu shot,
because they just don't know if it will actually work. I've had several of my doctor
and nurse friends tell me not to get vaccinated. Basically, they're putting a dis-
ease into your body and hoping that your body will fight it off. What if it doesn't?
I've known people who got the shot and got really sick from it; sicker than others
who actually had the flu. When I was sick, I had a really high temperature and
finally went to the doctor, who tested me and found I was positive for H1N1. I
was still sick and having symptoms like the cough for over a month. It just keeps
hanging on. I've heard that some of the ingredients in the vaccine aren't even
FDA approved. I think they rushed it into production without adequate testing
and I think that's dangerous. When I have nurses and doctors tell me not to do
something (like not get the shot) I usually pay attention. So I think the schools
should definitely tell parents if their child has been exposed to Swine Flu. Not to
do so is very irresponsible."

Excerpts heard at the May 26, 2009

Gulfport City Council Meeting

Public Comment

& Council Quotes

"When you tell citizens what they can and cannot say, I think you're
philandering with one of our most precious rights: freedom of
speech."- Margarete Tober, about recent changes to public session

"Your clerk is on the three most highly trained in the county and
we should daily say a prayer about how happy we are to have her."
- Lee Stapella

"I'm very concerned about what I heard at those workshops. I think
you have one councilmember who is leading you down a very bad
path." Al Davis, questioning what he called limits on Gulfport's freedom
on speech

"I think the March date is a problematic thing and I think we ought
to consider strongly a switch to November so we would be in sync
with the state and national elections." Bob Newcomb. Resident Al
Davis suggested that this move would save the city $10,000.

"I think what was being said there was being wrongly directed. It
should have been directed at me." Vice- Mayor Bob Worthington, who
said at a recent meeting that he would not want to see Gulfport elections
part of a national election. Resident Al Davis had expressed concerns that
another unnamed city council member had nefarious motives for wanting
the elections held separately from the national elections. Worthington said
he wanted to make it clear that he, nor "another council member" made
the comment.

"I love the holidays as much as anybody... I'd like us to consider
that... anything we light up down here has an impact in somebody
else's backyard."- Council member Sam Henderson, about mountaintop
removal associated with coal mining

"There's five of them in the state of Florida with no accountability
to the voters whatsoever."- Vice-Mayor Bob Worthington, on the water
management districts such as Southwest Florida Water Management
District (known to some as Swiftmud)

"Saturday, get up early, 'cause you're going to need to, to attend
everything... Sunday you can sleep if you want to. "- Councilmember
Judy Ryerson

H1N1 School Vaccination Starts November 9

By Leigh Clifton

In an effort to stem the outbreak of Swine Flu in the local public schools,
the Pinellas County Health Department will begin vaccinating at the schools
beginning November 9th. Students will be handed out a very detailed Flu
Vaccine Screening form to take home to their parents, which will have to be
filled out and signed before any student can be vaccinated. Clinics will be set
up in the schools and only students and school staff will get the vaccine. There
will be both the Flu nasal mist and the vaccine shot available. The vaccinations
are free to all children in Pinellas County private and public schools.
According to Pinellas County School Board Health official Rita Becchetti, the
incidences of Swine Flu have flattened or leveled out in the county.
"Where we once we getting up to 50 reports of flu-like symptoms a day, that
number has dropped off dramatically," Becchetti said. "There seems to have
been a decrease; this week we had no calls from parents about their child
having flu-like symptoms."
While the decreasing numbers are encouraging, Becchetti warns there could
be a resurgence and encourages all students to take advantage of the free
vaccinations at their school.
Regular flu kills more of the elderly and adult population, so flu shots have
traditionally been targeted towards that age group.
"The H1N1 virus seems to target kids more," Becchetti explained. "That's
why we need to get the vaccine to these children now."
Children nine years and younger will require two shots; the initial vaccination
and a booster a month later. Becchetti says that testing has shown that because
most younger kids have not had a regular flu shot, there is a need to boost the
immune system with a second dose.
A vaccination clinic will be set up at Boca Ciega High School on November
16th and 20th. Thurgood Marshall Fundamental is scheduled for November
llth, between 7:45 a.m. and 10:45 a.m. and Gulfport Elementary Montessori
School will be doing vaccinations at the school on November llth and 16th.
All information about the vaccination clinics, as well as a downloadable
information packet can be found at PCSB.org.

A Tale of
St. Pete Beach History


Roberta Whipple figures she's
spent about 35 years around St.
Pete Beach's downtown---first as
the daughter of a drug store owner
on 75th Avenue and, most recently,
as the administrator of the public
library on 73rd Avenue. Now she's
gathered all those memories, com-
bined them with some research,
and created a brand-new book
called St. Pete Beach's Corey Av-
Chapter topics include "The
Corey Causeway," "The Upham
Company," "First Arrivals," "The
Post-War Boom," "The Beach The-
atre," "City Operations" and "Spe-
cial Events." The title, published
by Arcading Publishing as part of
its "Images of America" series, is
available for sale at local stores, on
amazon.com, as well as at the St.
Pete Beach Library.
Roberta is donating all her earn-
ings as author to the Friends of the

Foster Wins St. Pete Mayoral Race
By Kate Bradshaw

In a contest that was heated even in its dullest moments, former St. Pete
City Council member Bill Foster won the St. Petersburg mayoral election by
a margin of nearly 2,500 votes. Kathleen Ford, Foster's opponent as well as a
former Council member, mingled with supporters at the Garden Club of St.
Petersburg as the results rolled in.
Around an hour after the polls closed, Ford ascended the stage and told
everyone who was gathered that she had conceded victory to her opponent.
There was an air of disappointment among the bipartisan crowd, many of
whom had spent the day waving signs on St. Pete's roadsides.
"I was waving signs until the very last moment before I came on over," said
Ford Campaign Treasurer Gaelynn Thurman, a republican.
Thurman said that she joined the campaign out of concern for the issues rather
than party politics.
"It is a no-brainer," she said. "(Ford) is incredibly fiscally responsible and that
is very core to who I am and that is not a party choice, and therefore it's not a
party choice to support Kathleen. It's one hundred percent about her policies
and her thoughts about how government should be approached."
While both lawyers and former Council members, Ford and Foster differ
greatly on many of the city's major issues.
Key differences between the two include their opinions on the Council's vote to
privatize the sidewalk that fronts Baywalk (Ford was against it; Foster was in
favor of it) and the question of whether to use taxpayer money to build a new
stadium for the Tampa Bay Rays (Foster is open to it; Ford isn't).
Thurman said that the media's portrayal of Ford hurt the campaign
"The biggest challenge has been the lack of balance that has been represented
by the media overall," she said.
Ford later joked that the media caused the downfall of her campaign, but said
that she believes her campaign was not a total loss, given the attention it drew
to certain issues.
"Obviously I would have liked to have won," Ford said. "But I'm very proud
of the race we ran and the volunteers and my family were just fantastic I'm
really excited about what we did, and we already made a difference."
Ford said that she is not planning on running for office any time soon.
"Kayak ride, Weedon Island," Ford told reporters when asked what was next
for her.

SStomethin on my mind
SBy Bill Northrop B_Northrop@theGabber.com

Global Warming vs. the State of Education

The sky-is-falling environmen-
tal computers model a world
of earthly catastrophe if we
earthlings don't get off our carbon
fuels diet. For instance, by the end
of the century, Florida will be under-
water like it once was, or at least its
coastal areas will be flooded.
Actually, there's no chance to stop
the world's use of carbon fuels be-
cause even if the U.S. taxes it out
of existence, China and India aren't
going to be a part of the deal. And,
their economies are in the infant
stage and their populations are
about eight times ours. Project that
So, while we're fretting about a
world catastrophe that might not be
happening at all and that we can't
do anything about, we've got a real
one on our hands that we can do
something about. It's called educa-
tion... actually, lack of education.
We do a lot of talking about it, of
course. Schools are all around us
and so is failure. Not all schools are
bad, but each year 25 per cent of
the kids coming through the public
system aren't competent in English
or Math. In some schools, half don't
graduate, and those that do aren't
prepared for anything. I'm not go-
ing to go through a lot of statistics -
they're buried in piles of papers and
books somewhere in the vicinity of
my desk.
However, we know what's going on
and we're doing nothing but talking
about it. We keep throwing money
at the problem, but don't change
the tactics. It's like the definition of
stupidity: doing the same thing the
same way over and over and expect-
ing different results.
We won't seriously take on "choice"
programs in which families are given
the option of going to private schools
with public money. Such programs
have started working well in Wash-
ington, D.C., but congress, with the

Obama administration concurrence,
is defunding the program.
Everyone knows that part of the
problem is discipline, or lack of it
within the institutions and within
families, but we put the educators
and those being educated on the
same level. You can't educate indi-
viduals who don't want to be edu-
cated. It is not a matter of saying
"educate me". "Me" has to get off his
or her duff and work to be educated.
I was happy to read the other day
that residents of our area blamed a
lot of the problems on the parents
and the students. Right on. I some-
times think we should tell people
they don't have a right to an educa-
tion. Then they'd want it. I remem-
ber going to Kenya 20 years ago and
finding young boys in tiny villages
outside of Nairobi hustling trinkets.
They spoke correct English (and
Sawhili) and kept accounts in their
heads. Education there (then) was
only free through the sixth grade.
And in Malawi, where our church
had a school mission, children
walked miles to the schools and then
worked the fields later. They had no
desks, few books, crude facilities and
little food.
In other words, students here take
much too much for granted and have
it too easy when it comes to educa-
tion. And it is a potential catastro-
phe. We're in world competition,
not for sports or for money, but for
brains. That's what's moving the
world these days. The Asians rec-
ognize it. We already missed out
on the computer revolution having
to import thousands of people from
across the world to fill jobs here.
I won't go on and on, but I'd ad-
vise we quit worrying about Global
Warming and start seriously worry-
ing about the state of education. It's
a REAL problem.

Shoes Blues
OK, this probably isn't news to most
females, but science has confirmed
that women who make poor shoe
choices early in life (and we're not
talking about Manolos vs. Jimmy
Choos) suffer severe or chronic foot
pain later in life.
Men, on the other hand (or foot),
generally do not.
The Farmington Foot Study surveyed
3,372 surviving members of two
earlier Farmington studies launched
in 1948 and 1972. They found that
almost one-third of the women ages
65 to 74 reported general foot pain on
most days compared with 19 percent
of similarly-aged men. Two-thirds of
the women said they had regularly
experienced heel and ankle pain in
their lives.
Not coincidentally, virtually all
the women said they had spent

much of that time wearing "high-
risk shoewear," such as high heels,
sandals and slippers lacking support
and sound structure. Less than 2
percent of the men said they had
worn "poor shoes."
The researchers offer a few shoe-
choosing tips to avoid later pain:
Select for comfort rather than style.
Measure both feet and fit for the
longest. Fit shoes at the end of day
when feet are longest. Avoid high
heels. Make sure you can wiggle your

Prostate-Specific Antigen (PSA)
testing, says a new report in the
Archives of Internal Medicine. PSA
testing has long been controversial,

because there's no conclusive evidence
the screening actually reduces deaths
from prostate cancer, and numerous
factors can create false positives,
prompting men to have needless
invasive procedures for a disease they
do not have.
The study urges doctors to make
sure patients are fully informed about
both benefits and risks before taking
the test.

Gout pal interactive
In literature and history, gout was
known as the disease of kings and
rich men -- a painful, debilitating and
mysterious ailment. These days, it's
much better known as a condition
marked by elevated levels or uric acid
in the blood, which creates painful
attacks in the joints, tendons and
surrounding tissues.
Gout remains an obscure but still
relevant medical condition, with

Attorney Keith Sanders Handles Bankruptcies with Experience and Sensitivity
By Greg Stem

S guess you could say my motto
is'been there, done that'," says
I Keith Sanders, from the law
office ofAndre Keith Sanders, P.A.
He says that for two reasons. First,
he says his more than 17 years of ex-
perience as an attorney specializing
in handling "literally thousands" of
bankruptcies means that he has dealt
with virtually any kind of problem
or issue that might arise with them.
And, secondly, he had to file a Chap-
ter 13 bankruptcy himself a few years
ago. He says that experience makes
him very sensitive to the kinds of
things people face when making the
difficult decision to file.
"Most attorneys have never been
in a situation where they have been
worried about how to keep the lights
on, but I have been there myself so I
can really relate to what people are
going through," said Sanders. "Plus,
many people are very embarrassed
when they come to me, but I when I
tell them how embarrassing it was for
me to have to stand in front of judges
and colleagues who knew me and go
through the process myself, that usu-
ally helps to put people more at ease
and understand that I have been there
and done that MYSELF."
"You know, in 99 percent of bank-
ruptcy cases the situation is that bad
things happen to good people and then
they have gotten into a bad situation.
They have gone through an expensive
health crisis or a divorce or perhaps
someone has just gotten in over their
head with debt. It's very easy in to-
day's consumer driven society for that
to happen," said Sanders.
Sanders offers a free initial consul-
tation with no set time limit on it. "It
might take 20 minutes or it might
take two hours, it just depends of the
client's individual set of circumstanc-
es," he said. "We can meet at their
home or in my office, we can even so
it over the phone if I they can provide
me with the financial information we
need to discuss their situation." Sand-
ers says that he can often offer other
solutions besides bankruptcy such
as re-negotiating payment schedules
with creditors or reorganizing per-
sonal finances. "For example, I often
have people who can avoid bankrupt-
cy if they just get out from under the
burden of a house they can no longer

afford because of a job loss or some
other situation," he noted.
He moved to the Tampa Bay area
in July 2005 from Atlanta where he
was a partner/owner of Hamilton &
Sanders, LLC a firm specializing in
consumer bankruptcy and real es-
tate closings. The firm regularly filed
between 40-60 bankruptcy cases a
month. Prior to that he worked for
three other major law firms in Atlan-
ta from 1992 to 2003. All three firms
specialized in consumer bankruptcy
cases. He began his career as a staff
attorney for the United States Trust-
ee in Atlanta. He is licensed to prac-
tice law in both Florida and Georgia.
"I like what I do because I feel like I
can help people get a fresh start," said
Sanders. "When you have financial
difficulties it can really affect your
entire life. It has negative implica-
tions on you emotionally and it can
even damage or ruin your personal
relationships. I do try and encourage
people to come see me early on, even

in payments or feel they are in over
their head. If you can start working
with an attorney from the very start
it can really reduce your stress level

Bankruptcy can be one solution to
getting back on your feet financially,
but it may not be the best or only so-

Sanders has held a number of semi-
nars and written professional papers
concerning bankruptcy law in gen-
eral, ECF requirements and new is-

Bankruptcy Section of the State Bar

Outside of the courtroom, Sanders
lives in an unusual home in Gulfport
that was one of the featured prop-
erties in last year's Pink Flamingo
Tour of Homes. It has a tree grow-
ing right up through the floor and
up through the ceiling of his kitchen.
He has three dogs and a cat. When
he was living in Atlanta he was very
involved with helping raise funds for
a number of AIDS service organiza-

"No" voters constituted 40 percent of
the turnout on a bill the bill, which will,
according to city officials, eliminate
the necessity of voter approval on
items like Capital Improvements
Plan updates and the Evaluation and
Appraisal Report.
Passing with a nearly 54 percent
approval, a charter amendment that
limits the number of times a change
in building height can be voted on will
also make it onto the St. Pete Beach
City Charter. Currently, St. Pete
Beach City Manager Mike Bonfield
recently told the Gabber, changes to
the comprehensive plan involving
height can potentially make it onto
the ballot twice as a comp plan
amendment and as a change to the
land development code, even though
what's in the comp plan should
The third item on the ballot, which
will essentially establish a community
redevelopment district for Pass-A-
Grille's Eighth Avenue, passed with
about 62 percent of the vote, according
to the Supervisor of Elections Web
site. This will essentially bring a
number of businesses in the district
into compliance with the comp plan
by "including increases in residential
density andcommercialfloor area ratio
and method for calculating permitted
density, allowing residential and
commercial land uses to be supported
inclusively by same underlying land
area." Bonfield said that there would
not likely be a lot of change in the area
if this item was approved.
Finally, garnering the highest
percentage of votes (67) is a procedural
referendum question that, because
the first item on Tuesday's ballot was
approved, will never have to be voted
on again. Question four existed to
gain voter approval of "...to address
and resolve recommendations based
upon the review of the Evaluation
and Appraisal Report (EAR) by the
State Land Planning Agency." The
report addresses any inconsistencies
with state law that may be present
in the city's comp plan. The state
has already approved of the report,
but current law requires that voters
approve it anyhow. "It's kind of like a
cleanup exercise, if you will," Bonfield
says. The document addresses issues
like current maps and the need for
increased sea turtle protection. "Kind

How To Turn Scrap
Gold Into Cash Without
Getting Ripped Off
I promise not to ask whether you
remember when the price of gold was
fixed at $35 an ounce or when U.S. cur-
rency was tied to the gold standard.
(Hint: The Gold Standard Act was

passed March 14, 1900, but later sus-
pended.) Things have changed dras-
tically over the years, with gold now
hovering around $1,050 per ounce.
Let's turn to your jewelry box, shall
we? Remember all that gold you
bought in the 1980s, when QVC and

"We're the only flood insurance
agency that offers cash rebates back
to all our customers," Jeff explains.
So if you buy your flood insurance

in the form of a rebate check.
"We give the money back to our
customers either at inception- if

again every subsequent year they

Here's how the rebate works:

Nope, Jeff says. FEMA is the only

is the same no matter what flood

policies written by his agency are
supported by the federal government
through FEMA.
FEMA pays a commission to the

could buy gold chains by the inch at
county fairs and community swap
meets? All of those chains, bracelets
and earrings may be broken now, but
they're not junk after all. They're not
worth much as jewelry in their sorry
state, but the gold content can be
turned back into cash.
Before you haul off and send your
scrap gold to a TV pitchman who
promises to send you a check or you
agree to attend a "gold party" at

instantly for your old gold, let me tell
you about a conversation I had with
Kevin Stevenson, owner of Johnson
Jewelers in Bellflower, Calif.
First, let's talk about value. Scrap
jewelry is valued by the weight of its
gold content. Pieces that are 10 kar-
ats are not as valuable as ones that
are 18 karats. A reputable jeweler can
test a piece to determine its gold con-
tent, weigh it and determine its value
as scrap.
When talking "scrap," jewelers do
not take into consideration beauty or
functionality. If you have good pieces,
do not attempt to sell them as scrap.
You'd do better on eBay or Craigslist.
However, if you have mismatched and
broken pieces that are truly noth-
ing more than junk jewelry to you,
you should consider packing up all of
the pieces and turning that gold into
You never should mail scrap gold to
a gold dealer, Stevenson says. That's
a rip-off just waiting to happen. Gold
parties, which are popular these days,
are not much better. Instead, he sug-
gests, take the time to have your scrap
evaluated by more than one reputable
jeweler. Take your scrap gold to three
jewelers, asking each one to give you
an offer. Once you have determined
the highest bid, don't be afraid to hag-
gle. These jewelers are not going to of-
fer the going rate of gold; they'll offer
a lower amount that will allow them
to have the metal melted down so that
it can be reworked into new pieces of
jewelry. Remember, jewelers are look-
ing to make the best deal, too.
You will not get anything close to
$1,000 an ounce for the gold content
in your scrap gold, but you'll get a lot
more than you have right now while
it languishes in the back of your jew-
elry box. Knowing how to get the best
price for all your junk jewelry should
make the prospect of cleaning out
those drawers that much sweeter.

R member riding your bike
when you were seven? Pretty
awesome, right? I had a red
three-speed I got one Christmas, and
I rode it all over my neighborhood
with my friend Maria. After school
and over the summer we went every-
where we could in a five-block radius,
returning home only for lunch, din-
ner and twilight.
30 or so years later I still like to ride
my bike. I've traded the three-speed
for a blue cheap-o one-speed with fat
ol' tires and a basket on the front for
Calypso. Sometimes I ride it to work,
or to the pool, or to the store. Other
times I'll take the bike path at Fort
DeSoto. I still love the way it feels
when I stand up, pedal real hard, then
coast a few hundred yards. Nothing
feels as good as taking my feet off the
pedals and letting them stick out as I
whiz along the roadside.
Somewhere along the way I think
some local bicyclists have lost that
feeling of joy. The biking world rides
on two disparate paths: slackers like
me who ride a bike at our leisure and
stick to sidewalks and bike lanes, and
the intense cyclists who insist that it
is their legal right to ride their uber-
expensive lightweight racing bikes
on the road. You know these folks;
you've seen these folks. They gener-
ally wear stretchy bike shorts and
flamboyant spandex shirts as they
tool down the road, heads down, puff-
ing with exertion.
Tool, of course, is the operative word
here. I understand cycling for fitness,
I do, but these folks do it at the ex-
pense of everyone else on the road.
I think of them as vigilante bicycle
groups, like people used to think of
Hell's Angels before we realized they
were all just a big group of tattooed
teddy bears in leather, donating kid-
neys to sick children or whatever it is
Hell's Angels do.
These cyclists have hijacked our
roads and I say it's time we took
them back. I do not accept the idea
that they have as much right to the
road as a motorcycle, car, or truck.
As my friend Richard said last week,

if someone invented the bicycle five
years ago, no way would we allow it
on the road. It isn't safe. That's why
god invented bike lanes.
Of course, our vigilante cyclists will
not use these lanes. These men and
women ride five or more abreast,
blocking any traffic from passing.
What's more, they ride in groups of,
oh, I don't know, a thousand, and
when one guy in the front stops for
a stop sign, the 999 riders behind
him decide that they're covered, too,
and therefore do not need to stop.
Red lights? If one rider makes it
through on green or yellow, you can
bet your Huffy that the rest are going
through, too-even if the light turns
red. In my world, that behavior is ac-
ceptable only at funeral processions.
Given their risky behavior, perhaps
these cyclists are training for such an
What really gets me -and pretty
much everyone I talked to when I
mentioned this subject to my editor
and he called me a cranky old lady- is
that these are the same cyclists who
insist they can ride on the road be-
cause the law says so. Seems rather
arbitrary, doesn't it? I would love to
be able to pick and choose what laws
I obey. Sorry, Officer, I know I was
going 120 on 1-275, but, hey, I'm not
drunk, so we're good, right?
Every week I drive up the beach-
es to see my parents in Clearwater.
Along the way I see something I
think took a lot of foresight: Indian
Rocks Beach and Indian Shores re-
worked their roadways to include
one lane for passenger vehicles, one
lane for pedestrians, and one for bi-
cyclists. This impressed me from the
first moment I saw it. What failed to
impress me, though, is the number
of vigilante cyclists pretending the
bike path doesn't exist as they pedal
down the middle of Gulf Boulevard.
It is illegal for cars to pass them in
the same lane and since these roads
sacrificed their passing lanes for the
bike and pedestrian lanes, cars must
stay behind these riders until the cy-
clist reaches his destination or some-
one runs her off the road. Which, by

the way, I am totally not endorsing.
Because, you know, they're correct
when they argue it's their right to
use the road. So much so, I think,
that in the spirit of taking back our
roads, we should treat them just as
we would any other vehicle on the
When someone's driving too slow
in front of you-I'm talking 10 or 15
miles under the speed limit-what's
the best thing to do? Take deep
breaths? Oh, no: the time for civility
passed long ago with these bicycle
terrorists. Pass them- in fact, cut
them off- and then drive slow in front
of them. I'm talking three miles an
hour. Actually, just put your car in
neutral. After all, it is their right.
Oh, or hey, when they run a stop
sign? Just go ahead when it's your
turn. Of course, this will mean you'll
have to blast your horn and prob-
ably slam on your brakes (you don't
want to actually hit them; the span-
dex shorts just make a mess of your
front grill), but, as they like to say,
it's their right.
I cannot imagine this will win any
points with these cyclists. Since
you're in a car, though, you have the
upper hand. What choice do they
have? Well, there's always that nice,
cushy bike lane. Who knows, they
may even have the chance to slow
down enough to look around, take
their hands off the handlebars, and
coast for a few hundred yards. Isn't
that the best part of riding your bike,
after all?

You & THE


Legal Transfers
of Control and
By Robert J. Myers, Esq.
This week, let's take a look at how
legal transfers of control and decision-
making work.
This is a legal process in which the
court places an individual or agency
in control of someone else's affairs.
Since establishing a guardianship
requires action by the Court system,
it can be expensive and cumbersome.
In addition, guardianship reduces an
individual's legal rights to those of a
This is a type of guardianship that
applies only to a person's property
and not his or her personal matters.
As such, its scope is less restrictive,
and the individual involved retains
many of his or her legal rights.
Durable Power of Attorney
By establishing a power of attorney,
you authorize someone else to act in
your behalf. You can give very limited
powers, such as authorizing someone
to sell property for you, or very broad

(727) 328-2847

powers, such as paying bills, making
investment decisions, or making all
decisions for you.
A durable power of attorney remains
in force even if the person who estab-
lishes it becomes incompetent. While
a power of attorney is generally es-
tablished to ensure that your affairs
will be handled for you, it must be
durable to be effective in the event of
your incapacity. Any power of attor-
ney, including a durable one, becomes
null and void when either the person
granting it or the person to whom it is
granted dies.
You should be sure to specify exactly
what functions are to be covered by
the durable power of attorney. For
example, medical decisions, invest-
ment choices and property care can be
named specifically.
Of course, a durable power of attor-
ney should be given only to someone
you trust implicitly to act in your best
interest. You should consult an attor-
ney for the specific requirement of a
durable power of attorney.

Just Passing Through
By Kate Bradshaw

They do it every autumn on Treasure Island's broad stretch of sand, and the
effect is always eerie; especially when they do it at dusk. The seemingly impen-
etrable bird blanket they form may invoke horror-flick images for some, but
Ann Paul, Regional Coordinator for Audubon of Florida, says that the thou-
sands of seabirds that congregate here are just resting.
Spook them and they take to the air in practical unison, forming a squawking
curtain that covers the evening sky. After swooping and circling once or twice
they land close to the same spot.
The flock comprises numerous migrating species, including terns, dowitchers,
greater and lesser yellow legs, gulls, black-bellied plovers and many others,
"some of which are pretty rare," Paul says. Some, like the red knot are in the
middle of journeys that have originated as far north as the Arctic Circle and
have destinations as far south as Tierra del Fuego.
All that needless flying away from perceived predators may be affecting their
energy stores these birds maintain for their long migrations.
"With so many people scaring those birds it's starting to have an impact on
their capacity to survive," she said.
Paul says that it is best to avoid disturbing these huge flocks.

had to visit UCONN's Gamp-
bel Pavillion, where they play
(and win alot) and the statue
of mascot Jonathon the Hus-
kie. She also took a side trip
to Vermont and stopped in at
the Vermont Country Store
(along with her Gabber). The
cool early September weather
gave her hope that soon our
weather will be a tad more
tolerable. P.S. Her edition of

After Hours At American Stage

Aleshea Harris stars in the After Hours Cabaret, Grit and Silk. American Stage sells tickets
for this show on a "pay-what-you-can" basis.

By Cathy Salustri

Complaining that St. Petersburg rolls up the sidewalks after 9 o'clock?
American Stage answers that complaint with its After Hours series. The After
Hours series, brainchild of Todd Olson, American Stage's Producing Artistic
Director came about when Olson wanted to enlarge American Stage's "artistic
identity," according to Olson.
"When we choose our mainstage plays, we have to choose plays that are going
to be satisfying to over 3000 subscribers, but when we choose these, we can
chose things off the beaten track. There is an audience for this out there, but
we don't have the pressure of 'Oh my god, we're going to make the subscribers
mad'," he says. Some of the plays, such as New Century, deal with mature
themes and have nudity, while others explore homosexuality and other same-
sex issues. Sandwiching these shorter, sometimes more exploratory pieces
between the mainstage productions allows American Stage to offer more kinds
of theatre to more kinds of audiences.
"It was kind of a stroke of genius on his part," American Stage's Director of
Marketing, Andy Orrell says. The After Hours series consists of shorter shows:
some plays, some musicals, and some cabaret-style entertainment. American
Stage mounts these productions in between its main stage productions as well
as after certain shows.
The After Hours shows run the gamut from this week's Manifesting Soul,
a cabaret-style show featuring poet/singer Erica Sutherlin, to last week's
End of the Road, a one-man show about Jack Kerouac. American Stage calls
some of the shows "edgy" and others "soul-grabbing," but the one constant in
every After Hours production remains the disparity between American Stage's
season of main stage shows and these more unusual works.
"We kept on talking about these shows that we really wanted to do, things that
we felt artistically we needed to do because if we didn't do them there wasn't
anyone else in the Tampa Bay area who could do them," Orrell explains.
Different show draw different types of audiences, Orrell says. He adds that all
the shows exceeded the regional Equity theatre company's expectations.
"Originally we thought, 'We probably won't make any money on this, but it's
what we should do'," he says. But the very first show, The Vagina Monologues,
turned out large crowds and, Orrell says, "was a huge, huge success."
"We're really impressed and really excited about the support that the people
in the community have given to this," Orrell says. "We've found a niche."
Future After Hours shows include The Dumb Show, From Havana to
Hell's Kitchen, Grit and Silk, and A Truman Capote Christmas Story. Call
American Stage at 823-7529 or visit AmericanStage.org for tickets and more

Treasure Island Building Renovation

Runs into Complications

By Kate Bradshaw

TREASURE ISLAND Every week the site looks different. First there was
the "Demolition Sale". Then the structure, which sits at the northeast corner
of Gulf and Causeway Boulevards, was vacant. Now, with only a portion of
its storefront remaining, the structure that for years as housed the Treasure
Island Surf Style location looks to be a goner.
But that wasn't the owner's original intent, says Treasure Island City Planner
Lynn Rosetti.
This past Wednesday the Treasure Island Planning and Zoning Board will
hold an emergency meeting to address a changes to a plan that originally
entailed a renovation; one that was supposed to retain some of the original
structure for historic and stylistic purposes.
Initially, Edlan, Inc., the Hollywood, Florida-based owner of this and numerous
other Surf Style stores, had planned to leave the external wall that fronts the
57-year-old art moderne structure intact, Rosetti said. The building would
serve as updated digs for the same Surf Style location; not condos as many
passersby seem to assume.
"They want it to continue to look old Florida," Rosetti said. "They do want it to
have that same look of the old building."
Major changes included raising the roof, demolishing the portion of the building
that once contained a Chinese restaurant and beefing up the structure's
disaster readiness. They will likely add restaurant space to the side of the
building that fronts Gulf Boulevard.
Yet as the "renovation" began, Rosetti said, the developer began to unearth
some severe structural problems.
"The building portions that are to remain are literally falling down," she said.
"It's really just a mess."
Rosetti added that she and others could see the walls of the building sway
when up close.
"A good breeze would blow it down and we can't have that," she said.
Rosetti said that the structural integrity of the 1952 building has nothing
to do with the work of the developer and that it may cause some delays in
construction; something Wednesday's meeting, the result of which was not
available by press time, aimed to mitigate. The developer hopes the update
will be completed in time for the 2010 spring break season.
