At last week's Planning and Zoning board (P&Z)
meeting, the boardvoted 4-1 to allow John Reeseback
to open a restaurant with a smoker in Gulfport. P&Z
member Bob Newcomb cast the dissenting vote.
"I love the whole idea; it's obvious I like to eat, and
I love the stuff he's going to make," Newcomb said
after reviewing the proposed plan and hearing from
Reeseback as well as Gulfport residents in favor of
and against the plan. But, Newcomb said, he couldn't
vote in favor of the smoker restaurant "in absence
of standards" for smokers. Newcomb suggested the
city establish such standards quickly.

ST. PETE BEACH- City voters approved
the creation of a pair of Community
Redevelopment Areas (CRA). The sole
question on the ballot paves the way for
revitalization and redevelopment of the
city's downtown core and coastal tourist
area. There were 2,754 votes in the
city's first vote by mail election. There
were 1,818 votes in favor and 936 votes
against Question No. 1.
"We are pleased that the residents
support our efforts to improve (the city),"
said City Manager Mike Bonfield.
The resort area on Gulf Boulevard
extends from the Pinellas Bayway to
just north of 76th Avenue. It includes

and his minions for handing this
election to my husband," she told
The Gabber as Hastings' campaign
manager tried to get her attention.
She waved him off and kept talking.
Gonzalez-Hastings referred to
anonymous packets of information
and veiled as well as not-so-veiled
references to her husband's past and
his business dealings, information
many suspect but none could confirm
came from the Steinke camp. In
interviews with this reporter,

Steinke did make veiled references
to Hastings' character.
"I hope they have learned once and
for all that Gulfport is not about
negativity. When you run for public
office you are running for the good of
the community, not the wants of the
few," Gonzalez-Hastings said.
Buoyed by the victory as well,
Hastings and his wife said, the relief
of the end of the campaign, the mood
at the celebration was jubilant.
Hastings' campaign manager, Brad
Rogers, teased Hastings about
bringing down the average height

on council (Rogers is rather tall
while Hastings is rather short) and
Hastings, in turn, thanked Rogers
for walking his dogs as part of his
campaign management efforts.
Hastings won with 500 votes;
Ryerson received 488. 317 voters
chose David Steinke and 305 showed
their support for Stanley Solomons.
Roz Barbieri received 172 votes.

to 64th Avenue. The Gulf Boulevard
district represents about 11.5 percent
of the city's total land area and
generates about 24 percent of the
city's property tax revenues.
The city's community development
staff projects a total of more than $60
million over the 20-year life of the
CRA from several funding sources.
Where will the money come from?
Money will come from increases in
the property values in the CRA. The
additional county and city taxes that
are generated as property values go
up, goes back into the CRA.
Because new development can mean
more cars on the existing roadways,
impact fees from these projects would
help cover the cost of upgrading
roads, drainage, sidewalks and curbs.
The Penny for Pinellas from sales tax
would go to improvement projects
such as undergrounding of utilities.
Where will the money go?
The money goes to improve
infrastructure and appearance of the
area. The plan lists projects ranked
by priority. High priority projects
include burying utilities, adding a
downtown parking garage, drainage
improvements, and public safety
improvements like crosswalks.
The whole plan and process for
implementing it is detailed in an
approximately 160-page document
on the city's home page at www.

73rd Avenue, just south of Woody's,
is a popular fishing and gathering
place with a great view of the Gulf
of Mexico.
The city resurfaced the parking
lot, replaced the benches, added
trashcans, installed a new fish-
cleaning table and did some
landscaping. The project is almost
complete, a pair of pipes still needs
some cleaning, said Operations
Manager Phil Christman.
Most of the damage in the park
was up by the seawall on the Gulf,
Christman said. "The problems were

mostly water oriented. Water was
coming in from under the seawall."

The Community Food Pantry housed
in the Senior Center is available for
Gulfport residents of all ages who are

Max Millspaugh, Musical Director
of the South Pasadena Community
Band has announced the title and
theme of the March 11 concert.
"We will build our program around
images that spring from the sounds
of music. That is the concert title,
as a matter of fact, "Images." This
concert is going to be a lot of fun.
It will include a varied selection of
music and the audience will have
an evening of good music and light
hearted entertainment."
The concert is free to the public and

couple of the selections on the concert.
"Gillette Look Sharp", "Music to
Watch Girls By", and a famous David
Rose tune (you will have to come to
hear which one) will be in the program

of the highlight of his tenure at his
last commission meeting on March

Commission wants
to Hear More on
Dolphin Village Plan
ST. PETE BEACH- The St. Pete
Beach City Commission decided to
delay a decision to make way for
a bank at the former Bennigan's
site at 4625 Gulf Boulevard. The
existing restaurant building would
be removed and a new JP Morgan
Chase bank would go at the same
locale. With the proposal the bank
will be a stand-alone facility apart
from Dolphin Village. It would
involve some revising of the planned
development, which includes a mix
of residential, restaurant and retail

Chris Kirschler of BDG Architects
presented the plans for the bank.
If approved the plans could begin
immediately, he said. The proposal
modifies about one acre of the existing
Dolphin Village site.
The commission wants to hear more
from the developers with what they
plan to do in their development of
the entire parcel before they decide
on the bank.
"If we start cutting up the planned
development. What you have left is
not a planned development," said
Vice Mayor Al Halpern.
The proposed bank building would
be elevated about four-feet since its
in the flood plain. There will be a
heavy emphasis on landscaping. The

Bonfield's sign off on paperwork
saying the city won't use
groundwater at Horan Park. The
paperwork is one of the final pieces
needed for a HUD program to
release $247,500 in grant monies
to offset the cost of the Community
Center Complex construction. There
was past contamination at the park
site. The city plans to ask to remove
this limitation at a later date since
the most recent test showed the
groundwater is clean, wrote Public
Services Director Steven Hallock.

Citizens Weigh in
on County Budget
The Pinellas County Commission
hosted 97 citizens at the first of
three Public Budget Meetings on
March 3 at Palm Harbor University
High School. The meeting was the
first in a series of outreach efforts,
during which commissioners hope to
receive feedback from citizens about
the budget. The county is looking at
a $60 million reduction in the fiscal
year 2011 budget, which begins Oct.
1, 2010.
The next Public Budget Meeting is
scheduled for Thursday, March 11,
5:30 to 7:30 p.m., at Osceola High
School, 9751 98 Street N., Seminole.
The third Public Budget Meeting will
be on Thursday, March 18, 5:30 to
7:30 p.m., at Gibbs High School, 850
34 Street S., St. Petersburg.
The Public Budget Meetings are
designed to give residents a chance
to familiarize themselves with the
budget process. All attendees will be
given a questionnaire asking about
priority programs and services. They
can speak to the staff in charge of
the program areas that are under the
purview of the County Commission,
and they can spend time with the
commissioners and the county
administrator. During the latter part
of the evening, time will be allocated
to citizens wishing to publicly
address the commissioners, and the
questionnaires will be collected.
An eTownHall meeting is also
planned for the convenience of all
residents on Monday, March 15, from
6:30 to 8 p.m. The blog will open at
9 a.m. Sunday, March 14, and will

continue to be open until the end of
the event, at 8 p.m. Monday.
As part of the eTownHall meeting,
residents can blog questions to
the commissioners, which will be
answered and broadcasted live on
the website during the eTownHall
meeting. The meeting can also be
viewed via live streaming video on
www.pinellascounty.org or on the
PCC-TV cable channels (Bright House
622, Knology 18 and Verizon 44).
Citizens can receive a reminder
about the eTownHall by signing up on
the website. The link is available on
Computer access will be available
during the eTownHall meeting at
three county libraries: Palm Harbor
Library, 2330 Nebraska Ave.; Largo
Library, 120 Central Park Drive
and the Johnson Branch of the St.
Petersburg Library, 1059 18th Ave.

Taxis vs. Free Rides
ST. PETE BEACH- The commission
plans to modify its ordinance that
regulates vehicles that transport the
public around town. Currently just

vehicles that charge their customers
are regulated. The issue has come
up since a number of vehicles have
started transporting passengers
without charge. They get their
money through tips and advertising.
The city manager said they would
bring the modified ordinance back to
the commission for review. Currently
the free taxis are considered an
advertising business. Paidtaxi service
has many city requirements such as
insurance and driver background

Museum Signs Okayed
ST. PETE BEACH- The commission
approved placing bluish-purple
banners about the Gulf Beaches
Museum on city roads around town.
The museum located at 115 10th
Avenue is located in what was the
first church built on the Pinellas
County's barrier islands. The
museum exhibits trace the history of
the barrier islands from the 1500s to
the present. The city will check with
merchants on Corey Avenue before
placing banners in that area.

Commission Ponders
Guidelines for Quasi-
Judicial Proceedings
ST. PETE BEACH- The commission
discussed Tuesday procedures for
when they act in a quasi-judicial or
court-like manner for decisions on
planning and zoning matters.
The City Attorney Mike Davis said
the hearings were very similar to
court proceedings and the guidelines
were important since the commission
decision could be appealed in Circuit
Decisions made at a quasi-judicial
hearing are made strictly on the
evidence presented. "You're supposed
to base it on the testimony and the
evidence presented to you during the
proceeding," Davis said.
The commission decided to follow
Davis' advice and not have people
sworn in.
The commission will look more into
who can speak as an opponent to the
decision before it passes a resolution
on new quasi-judicial procedures at
an upcoming meeting.

Shari McPherson, St. Pete: "I
disagree with changing the $50 bill.
I'm from North Carolina originally
and I didn't realize he (McHenry)
was the congressman who was trying
to put a bill through. It would change
history- don't do it. The currency has
always been like that. I'm one of those
people who say if it isn't broken, don't
fix it."

Mary Anne Premock, St. Pete
Beach: "I think it should just go as
is. If they come up with a different
currency, like the two dollar bill
again, for example, that would be
the place for him. But I don't think
they should alter any of the original
currency. I don't know why they
would want to do it anyway."

John Evanoff, Clearwater: "No,
because I considered Reagan a
puppet president from Hollywood
and I don't think he's worthy of being
on our money. Although the value of
the $50 bill today is a perfect example
of Reaganomics; a good example of
trickledown economics at ..ik'

Dan Thyreen, Gulfport: "I think
the Conservatives need to finally let
Reagan go. He was a good man but
now it's time to move on! Even Jeb
Bush said it was time to move on.
I liked him in his first term when
pride in our nation was really low.
He helped us reestablish our self
esteem as a country. Second term,
not so much. Reaganomics and the
trickledown theory didn't happen.
It's still trickling..."

Theatre Walk Comes to
Gulfport's Art District
After a four year hiatus, Three
Muses & A Fool Productions is excited
to present its 9th Theatre Walk
"Smitings". This lively theatrical
event centers around six short plays
written by award-winning writer, and
author of the "hauntingly hilarious",
"Still Life with Bulls and Sangria".
This year, The Walk is led by a
disgruntled substitute Sunday School
teacher, trying her best to recall the
biblical stories she's supposed to
be teaching. She ushers her "class"
through Gulfport's Art District,
where her peculiar recollections of
Goliath, Samson & Delilah, Jesus,
Joan of Arc, and even the Norse
God Odin materialize on the streets.
Directed by Ciara Carinci, the
cast includes veteran Walkers Jim
Greene, Lynda Kavy, Tom Laitinin,
Bethany Peabody and Peter Suarez.
Performances are March 25, 26,
27, April 1 and 3, Thursdays at 7:30
p.m.; Friday and Saturdays at 8:30
p.m. The Walk commences at the
Courtyard Village on Beach Blvd. in
Gulfport's Art District. Tickets are
$10. For more information, call 727-

Walk on Facebook.

ItStoroscoDe Guide

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You
tend to fall in love with people who
can do something you can't. You grow
as you do this, since Pisces people are
often able to take on their partners'
qualities through osmosis. You'll be
in a good mix of people this week, so
continue to seek partners who amaze
and inspire you.
ARIES (March 21-April 19).
Picking your way through a
politically complicated situation is
time-consuming and stressful, but
you have to admit, you dig it. Why
shouldn't you? You're really good at
diplomatic relations. Your sensitivity
to people and your grasp of the bigger
picture make you the perfect person
for the job.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20).
Tenacity is in your blood. But why
bang your head against a wall that's
never going to fall down? To discern
the difference between persistence
and stupidity is not always easy. You
will have doubts about staying on a
particular task, but donit give up yet.
A significant development is on the
GEMINI (I .ny 21-June 21).
Wouldn't it be wonderful if everyone
would intuit our desires and fulfill
them without us having to articulate
a thing? Unfortunately, that is not
the case. But there's good news, too.
The best way to get what you want
is simple: Ask for it! This week you
ask a bold question that gets your
personal life rockin'.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). You've
been dealt a few wild cards, and you'll
get a few more. The way things are
shaking out, you wonder how much
control you really have over your life.
Choosing this way or that way may
seem futile as fate takes the driver's
seat. In fact, your choice does count
-- a lot. Now is a good time to practice
letting go.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Your fire-
sign energy is turned up this week.
Take a cue from your guiding star, the

sun. Stay a respectful distance from
the object of your affection, and this
person will gravitate toward you.
You may even find that you have a
small crew of loving people orbiting
around you all week long.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You
make your own opportunities. The
ones that seem to be coming from
the outside world are actually the
manifestation ofwhat you've created
with your innermost thoughts. You
may have heard this before and
doubted its validity. But the way
this point will be illustrated for you
this week, you will recognize its
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). A good
partner is someone who can help
you prioritize and pace yourself. If
you're getting out of sync, feeling
rushed, sluggish or scattered, look
carefully at the company you're
keeping this week. Could they have
anything to do with it? Attention to
interpersonal dynamics will clear
up a few roadblocks.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). More
is not always better. In fact, usually
less is better. You have no problem
leaving the extraneous stuff that
drags you down. When you're done
with something, you simply drop
it. You'll be a master at making
attitude adjustments in an instant.
A friend will be inspired by your
ability to cut to the quick.
21). When you ask, "Why did I
just do that?" the answer won't be
readily available. Is it a genetic
predisposition or something in your
environment that's triggering your
behavior? Brain development is
wildly complex. Instead of asking
why, ask, "How can I do it better next
time?" You'll have more success.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19).
You think you need to increase
the self-control, crack down on


te G. e

discipline and get your act together.
But the opposite approach may have
an even better effect. Doing nothing
has merit, too. So does being lazy
and indulgent and goofing off. Ditch
the self-improvement campaign and
see how that works for you.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). It's
like someone clicked the "random"
button on life. Events won't follow a
logical path. Non sequiturs abound.
Conversations fragment, loop the
loop and then shoot off through the
stratosphere. What will you do with
all this weird input? As resourceful
and clever as you are, by Thursday
you'll be turning it into art.
This Week's Birthdays: You will
stand up and be counted this year.
The more you do this, the easier
it gets. The things you used to
quietly put up with will be suddenly
unacceptable to you. You'll be finding
a new way to express yourself
in April. A favorable critique or
review will lead to promotion and
an increase in your professional
power. June brings you closer to
loved ones as you share lighthearted
experiences. Plan a big event for
August. A special relationship brings
out your creativity in September.

Let the Little League Games Begin!

I, L-ign Cih[.,n
Nine year old Ben Cook tries his bat at the air pitcher cage as Rec Center volunteer Kathleen
Blinkhorn places the ball on the air flow. The object is to hit the ball as it "floats" in the air...
Pretty tough; Ben had little trouble with it however....
It's that time of year again folks; its how you know that Spring is almost here.
That we'll finally shrug off the cold ugly mantle of Winter and heed the call to
the fields of green... Little League Season is here.
Last Saturday morning, the city of Gulfport threw itself and the Little
Leaguers and all of their supporters a gala parade through the city, from the
Rec Center, up Beach Blvd and all the way to Tomlinson Field, home field
for Gulfport Little League. There were so many little ones running around in
multihued uniforms with various local sponsors, that it was hard to keep them
all together in time enough to actually play a game.
As part of the exciting opening tradition, Parks Supervisor Bob Williams had
a special treat for the Little Leaguers; speed pitching tents, batting cages and
all things baseball and all made of indestructible air-filled plastic. The kids got
to try their hand at hitting a plastic ball suspended by air; both Bob and Gail
Byron tried as well and couldn't do it. They got shown up by a couple of nine
year olds, who wacked it out of the park.
Hot dogs, sodas and snacks fed the hungry bunch of players, who worked up
huge appetites after playing their games. The sky was a blazing blue, the air
was cool and dry, and all seemed right with the world. As Mayor Yakes always
says, it was a great day for Gulfport.

the health concerns of another?

Who's Running
Our Schools?
That students at Johns Hopkins
Middle SchoolinSt. Petersburg
can't get an education because
rowdy students rule the school is a
disgrace. That schools are measured
by the number of arrests that occur
or don't occur is a disgrace. That
Johns Hopkins is not an isolated
incidence either here or in the rest
of the country is a disgrace. That we
have to be arresting so many young
people at all means one of two things:
there are too many bad children or
that the people running the schools
have lost control. I suspect it's both.
That's a disgrace, too.
Last week's reports seemed to
blame the problem on the return to
neighborhood schools. Presumably

that meantbadorblackneighborhoods
or maybe just poor neighborhoods. It
wasn't long ago that educators were
complaining that bussing students
all over the place was the problem
because parents and children were
too disconnected.
It's all nonsense and excuses. Neither
race nor poverty nor separation is
the base problem. My Lord, there are
poverty stricken African children who
walk miles to get to schools without
proper lighting, books, chalk, pencils
or papers. For them, school is a rare
privilege. For American students
it is an abused right. Maybe we
should take away the right. People
always want what they can't have.
Or, maybe not getting an education
doesn't have enough consequences
because big nanny government's
going to take care of everyone in the

This business about not putting
enough money into the schools is
nonsense too. Dump more dollars
to the same people and the same
system and expect different results?
Get real! Perhaps we can hire
more policemen, buy more metal
detectors, get more counselors and
baby-sitters to care for the pregnant
teens and their off-spring.
Can you imagine running a business
this way? Or our government? Oops.
This is government. We're supposed
to be preparing the children to be
productive citizens. If that's the
educational environment, you can't
expect much more when they get
out. Actually what is amazing is
that so many children do come out
of the system with some training.
Perhaps that's the real tragedy of
the situation: that so many children
really DO want to learn.
What a disservice we do to this
group in creating a tyranny of the
minority. We as a society have
become so fixated upon main-
streaming hoodlums and disruptive
special ed kids that we've lost sight
of the goals and serious purposes
of education. We've let the animals
run the zoo. And, we keep tip-toeing
around the issue.
Also, there's some myth being
spread that the kids need to have a
big say in running the schools. Read
"Lord of the Flies". If you haven't,
just consider that children's brains
are not fully developed. That's a fact.
That's part of being a child. We need
fully developed brains running the
schools. We call these adults. They
do know better and are smarter.
Children really don't have rights in
this context, or shouldn't.
Of course, part of the problem
might be that parents don't run
their children anymore. Maybe the
kids are in charge there, too. You
know the bit: "who is the parent
here?" Whatever the underlying
societal problems are the schools
can't solve them. Schools need to be
the protected refuge from society's
problem, not the reflection of them.
Get the bad kids out of the way
and get some back bone, for God's
sake. I'm guessing the majority
of the students and their parents,
whatever color or financial status,
would welcome that.

Gulfport Centennial Countdown Continues!

100 Week Countdown to 100 Years!
In just 31 weeks, Gulfport will
celebrate the centennial of its
incorporation, October 12, 1910. We'll
be reminding you every week with an
interesting old photograph from the
collection of the Historical Museum. See
if you can identify the people, places, and
above all the decade of each picture as it
comes along. To make it a little bit of a
challenge, we won't publish the correct
caption until the following week.

The Boca Ciega students in last week's
photo were all dressed in white for some
unknown event one day in 1959. Anyone
remember who they were or where they
were going?

Who was this gentleman, surrounded by his wares, and what
service did he perform for Gulfport residents? Answer next

Sergeant Linda Fletcher
Sdbrings her police vehicle
in to Frank Kubicki at
Pinellas Tire. For 26 years

a P his business on the beach
for more than 30 years.
On a Monday this
winter Frank asked the
Police officer questions
A routine vehicle check and some persistent followup about the chest pain
by Sergeant Linda Fletcher led Pinellas Tire Owner Frank and shortness of breath
Kubicki to get some potentially lifesaving medical care. he was experiencing
Kubicki now calls Fletcher his guardian angel. while he changed a
tire. Although Sergeant
Fletcher encouraged Frank to go to the hospital he kept working on cars.
Sergeant Fletcher was persistent; on a mid-afternoon stop to the Blind Pass
business she got Frank to go to the fire station where they checked his vital
signs. A doctor's visit and surgery followed in short order. Frank ended up
having triple bypass surgery.
The 76-year old mechanic said he's never sick and always active. "If it wasn't
for her I wouldn't have gone and maybe it would have been too late," Frank
"If you know Frank everything is no big deal, I will take care of it later,"
said Paul Pfister of the North Beach Civic Association who praised Fletcher for
her persistence and service at a recent city council meeting.
The police -.,'g...nIl's caring continued as she telephoned about Frank's
recovery. His 24-year-old granddaughter Brandie Becker took one of Fletcher's
calls and said, "You know grandpa she's your guardian angel."
Now when Fletcher stops by with her police car Frank calls her his guardian

Excerpts heard at the March 9, 2010
St. Pete Beach
City Commission Meeting

Public Comment

& Council Quotes

"I can come up and tell you it's my 25th birthday and you are not
going to tell me otherwise."-Rosemary Manning, on the city commis-
sion's discussion of whether or not to swear people in during quasi-judicial
procedures. Manning said people taking an oath would be more likely to
think carefully and tell the truth when they speak.

"I think it's about running a meeting." -Commissioner Christopher
Leonard on recent problems at quasi-judicial proceedings and the need to
update the commission's quasi-judicial procedures. Leonard said after a
recent hearing he got many phone calls from people who could not believe
what was happening at town hall.

"Criminal have used a taxi cab (unbeknownst to the driver at the
time) as an escape method and gone all the way up to Clearwater."
- Carol Vallee of BATS Taxi, on the commission's discussion of regulating
taxis. Vallee answered the commission's questions on how taxi logs have
been used by the city police and for tourists to retrieve lost items.

"(Its) played in such a manner that senior adults and young people
can play together and not kill each other." -Carol Walker, on praising
the activities and staff at the community center. Walker described the fun
she has playing pickle. It's half tennis, half ping-pong, she said.

"If they shutter us for one day, we lose the trust and it reverts back
to the original owners." -Spencer Lucas on the possibility of closing the
Gulf Beaches Museum because of county budget troubles.

Additional Exemption
for Low Income Seniors
If you are over 65, and received
the homestead exemption, you
may be eligible for an additional
property tax benefit. The Low
Income Senior Exemption is a "local
option" exemption, which means the
governing bodies of the county and
cities can choose whether or not to
offer it, and they can choose how
much of an exemption to offer, up
to $50,000. Currently, it is available
to qualified property owners in
unincorporated Pinellas and 20
of the 24 municipalities, and is in
addition to any other property tax
exemptions owners receive. Only
the county Municipal Services
Taxing Unit (MSTU) millage or
the city millage is exempt. Cities
not offering the exemption include
Belleair, Belleair Shore, Gulfport
and South Pasadena.
To qualify, at least one homestead
property owner must be 65 years
old or older on January 1, 2010; the
applicant must receive a Homestead
Exemption; and the total household
income for 2009 must be $25,780
or less. Social Security income is
usually not included in that amount
because the income calculation is
based on "adjusted gross income"
as defined by the IRS for federal
income tax purposes. Those seniors
who are not required to file with the
IRS because their income is very low
almost always qualify.
This exemption does not
automatically renew like the

Host Families Needed
for Exchange Students
Pacific Intercultural Exchange (PIE)
is a non-profit organization looking
for caring families to host high
school students from many countries
around the world. The students are
between 15 17 years of age and will
attend school for an academic year or
semester at your local high school.
There is no such thing as a typical
host family. They accept single
parents, retired couples, families with
small children, teens or no children at
all! You can have a great experience
hosting an International teen. The
students are prescreened, speak
English and are looking forward to
learning about our culture while
teaching Americans about theirs.
Students will have medical insurance
and their own spending money to
cover clothing, school expenses,
entertainment, etc. Host families
should provide not only a loving home
and food for their daily meals, but
also a quiet place to be able to study
and bedroom to rest. Although host
families are not paid, one is eligible
to claim a charitable tax deduction of
$50 per month for every month the
student is in the home.

What Steps are Involved
in the Probate Process?

Part III
(This Article is Part III in our review
of the Florida probate process and
follows our last feature on probate.)
5. Filing the Inventory
Next, a Personal Representative
is required to develop an inventory
and appraisal of an estate's assets
and debts which must be filed with
the Probate Court.
When developing an inventory,
the Personal Representative
should identify all of the estate's
probate property, including both
real estate and personal property.
To conduct the inventory, the
Personal Representative may need
to visit a savings and loan or bank
to determine the value of a savings
account on the date of death. When
doing so, it is best for the Personal
Representative to take along letters
of administration as proof of his/her
While the inventory need not detail
every last piece of clothing or all

of the pots and pans, the Personal
Representative must place a value
on the deceased's personal articles,
including keepsakes. A Personal
Representative may estimate the
value of estate property or hire a
professional appraiser to determine
the value of probate assets. A
Personal Representative should
be involved in the inventory and
appraisal as much as possible.
When conducting the inventory,
the Personal Representative should
distinguish between property that
the deceased owned individually
(probate property) and jointly with
right of survivorship (non-probate
6. Paying Creditors, Taxes and
All debts and taxes owed by the
estate are then required to be
paid. A Personal Representative
is responsible for determining the
validity of creditor claims and paying
the debts. APersonal Representative
is also responsible for preparing and
filing the tax returns. The following
types of taxes may arise in estate
A. Personal Income Tax
B. Estate Income Tax
C. Inheritance Tax
D. Estate Tax
Compared with the substantial
value of many estates, court costs
and probate administration fees
may seem relatively minor.
In addition to court fees, estates
normally incur other administration

costs. Perhaps most significant
among these is attorney's fees and
the cost of providing the required
notice. Registered letters may need
to be mailed to all interested parties
and a Personal Representative must
publish notice of the estate in local
newspapers. Also, an estate will
have to cover the cost of the Personal
Representative's bond.
7. Preparing the Final Accounting
The Personal Representative
prepares a final accounting of the
estate's value and debts. The final
accounting is complete once the
inventory, appraisal, and payment
of any outstanding taxes and debts is
accomplished. The final accounting
is a detailed balance sheet that
shows the value of all the estate's
assets, along with any income or
interest earned, debts paid, money
owed, and tax payments. The final
accounting is sent to the Court and
all interested parties for review and
approval. The heirs have a right to
challenge this accounting because a
mistake could directly affect the size
of their inheritances.
8. Distributing the Assets
The Personal Representative
next oversees the distribution of
the estate's assets to survivors,
according to the instructions in the
will. If a person dies without a will,
then the intestacy laws of the State
of Florida direct the distribution.
9. Closing the Estate
Following approval of the
final accounting, a Personal
Representative can close the estate.
To do so, a Personal Representative
submits a sworn statement to the
Probate Court and interested parties
which specifies all estate business is
finished. This may require a formal
Court hearing with all interested
parties given the opportunity to

Generosity Has No Age Limit

By Leigh Clifton

Senior Center
Supervisor Sue Frank,
(left) Elizabeth Brown-
Worthington (center) and
Services Coordinator
Cynthia Dean are almost
hidden by the mounds
of foods collected by
Elizabeth at her twelfth
birthday party. Accepting
donated canned goods
in lieu of presents, she
then donated all of the
food to the Senior Center
Food Pantry.

For their twelfth birthday, most little girls are thinking about dolls and
presents, games and double -tiered chocolate cake with butter cream frosting.
But the invitations for Miss Elizabeth Brown-Worthington's twelfth birthday
read a little differently than most. In addition to directions and the party's
time, hers included one significant request; that all of the guests bring a non-
perishable food item or canned good, in lieu of a present for her birthday. When
you have 120 guests for a party; that can translate into a LOT of food.
Ms. Brown-Worthington, whose uncle is former Vice-Mayor Bob Worthington,
said she had gotten the idea after she saw that the C.E.R.T team donated a
gift of $200.00 to the Gulfport Senior Center Food Pantry. "I don't need gifts,"
she said matter of factly, with a smile. "I have a lot of stuff and I realized that
the Pantry was running really low on goods. They really needed the help. I
have two other friends whose birthdays are close to mine. They donated food
as well."
Those goods often provide the only food some needy Gulfport families will
have for a meal at one time or another.
Canned soups, vegetables, meats and fish, noodles of every kind, even
Girl Scout cookies were overflowing from two gated wagons that Elizabeth
presented to Senior Center Supervisor Sue Frank and Services Coordinator
Cynthia Dean.
Says Sue Frank, "She's amazing and we here are all really touched by her
generosity. She's a very special young lady and we're very grateful for the
Cynthia Dean agrees.
"Elizabeth is very unique; the fact that she used her birthday as a way to
raise food for our pantry is really wonderful. And we really need the help, now
more than ever."
Dean says that the pantry used to serve maybe three to four people during a
week. Now the amount has increased immensely, with more and more young
families as well as single people stopping by for essentials. The demand has all
but emptied their pantry shelves.
"The need is great and it is sad, but we are very proud to be able to offer help
to Gulfport residents. Our only criteria is that they must be a Gulfport city
resident. People have told us that they enjoy donating to us because they know
the assistance goes directly the people of Gulfport."
What's next for Gulfport's youngest philanthropist?
"I'd like to do this for every birthday," Elizabeth says with a wide smile.

Meals on Wheels
Needs Drivers
Volunteers are needed to deliver hot,
nutritious meals to the homebound
throughout Pinellas County.
Volunteering for the Neighborly
Meals on Wheels program is a
hands-on, front line experience. If
you have 11/ hours midday to help
in your own neighborhood, you could
help improve someone's life and
make a real difference in this critical
area of need. Meals are picked up at
a site near you and delivered to the
homebound in your area (maps and
directions are provided).
Many Pinellas County seniors are
living alone, too poor to buy food,
or too frail to shop and cook for
themselves. And the need is growing
every day. Do someone else a favor
and you will be doing yourself one!
Neighborly needs compassionate,
caring volunteers to share their time
with lonely, isolated seniors. Please
call Pat Hazell at 727-573-9444, ext.

H rdaths

By Cathy Salustri

I am going to get cancer.
That's not a guess or a death
wish; it's an almost-certain
fact I live with every day. Of my
grandparents, three of them had
cancer. It killed two of them. Breast,
lung, colon, and a few other cancers
climb through my family tree like
kudzu. According to the American
Cancer Society, just over 11 million
Americans have cancer right now.
The country's population hovers at
just over 300 million, so that's about
three percent of Americans who are
battling defective cells that may or
may not kill them.
That may not sound like a lot, but
the probability that you or I will
get cancer is pretty significant. The
American Cancer Society tells me I
have a one in eight chance of getting
breast cancer. So does any woman
reading this column. Add in my
myriad of risk factors and the odds
skyrocket. As for the men, you have
even worse odds: one in six of you will
get prostate cancer and half of all
men will get cancer in their lifetime.
One out of every three women will get
some form of cancer as well. Suffice to
say, the odds are not good. You have
a better chance of winning at craps
in Vegas than avoiding knowing
someone who has, will have, or has
had cancer.
Cheery, huh? I can shovel enough
dark green vegetables in my mouth to
feed a small country, religiously grope
myself in the shower every month as
I check for lumps and irregularities,
and spend so much time in spinning
classes that I don't even know what
my resting heart rate is anymore...
and still get cancer. Worse, I can still
die from cancer.
When I was young I didn't care. I
figured we all had to go sometime. I
smoked menthol cigarettes between
courses of fried cheese, hot dogs,
and potato skins loaded with bacon,
reasoning that since I could get hit by
a bus tomorrow, what was the point?
And then people I loved started
to die way too young. And I got the
point real quick.

I have three aunts. One of them
- my godmother was diagnosed
with breast cancer in her 50s. She
ate healthy, had no family history
of breast cancer, and didn't smoke.
Aside from my own mother, she was
the best woman I have ever known.
You know where this is leading,
right? She lost her fight with breast
cancer a few years after her diagnosis.
Sometimes I forget she's gone. Other
times I remember all too well. Her
pain, I assume and hope, has ended,
but her husband, children, and
mother still feel it very keenly.
I have another aunt battling cancer
right now, and she's in her 50s as
well. I would do anything to see her
beat the cancer. I'm certain her three
children all of whom still live at
home feel the same way.
I'm tired of watching people I love
die. I've had two bosses killed by
cancer, one in her 40s and one in his
50s. I know a few survivors, too, but
I've known more people who didn't
survive. While I can't say I loved
everyone who died, or even that I was
particularly close to them, they all
had one thing in common: someone
loved them as much as I loved
my godmother and grandparents.
Someone still thinks about them and
forgets momentarily, at least that
they can't pick up the phone and hear
their voice.
You think that's lousy? It is. We're
not very good at curing cancer, either.
One out of every four American men
will die from cancer, as will one out
of every five American women. That
means that in my circle of friends,
one of us- possibly two of us- will die
from cancer. Dying doesn't scare me;
I just don't want to do it. The thought
that somebody I love will get cancer
and die from it? THAT terrifies me.
For now, there's not much I can do.
If I think about it too much, I'll go
crazy. I neglected to get my MD, so
odds are I'm not going to be the one
to find a cure.
It's not uncommon, I've read, to feel
powerless in the face of a disease as
monumental as cancer. Indeed, as
each of my relatives succumbed to

these fast-growing cells, the only two
things they had the power to do were
live every moment they could. Then
they had the power to die. Those of us
left didn't feel like we had any power
at all.
The only thing I can think to do
seems so removed from finding a
cure, but it's all I have. I can walk
in this spring's Relay For Life (April
9 and 10). The Gabber is, for the
first time ever, sponsoring a team in
Gulfport. The writers are walking,
taking turns to keep someone on the
track all night. We want you to walk,
too. If you've formed or joined a team
already, fantastic. If you don't have
a team but you want to walk, we'd
love to have you join us; everyone is
welcome. If you'd rather send money,
you can. To donate money or join our
team, click on the link for Relay For
Life on The Gabber's web site (www.
TheGabber.com) and search for our
team, aptly named "The Gabber."
There is no minimum to join; The
Gabber's already taken care of the
minimum fundraising amount. We'd
love to raise more money, though,
because the money goes to the
American Cancer Society, a group
that funds more cancer research
than any other private agency in the
United States. They make sure that
the money we raise goes to doctors
and chemists and anyone else who
can help find a cure for cancer.
That cure can't come fast enough.
Preferably in my lifetime, because I
don't care that I'm getting older, but I
don't want to lose anyone else I love.

Sm oker, from front page
days in one location, but if Gulfport city council agrees with P&Z's decision,
Reeseback will open a restaurant at 4155 Gulfport Boulevard, the former site
of Trudell pools.
Mark Gildausakis and Jane Ogilvie spoke against the smoker, as did Jennifer
Salmon. The Gildausakis and Ogilvie family lives close to the site of the former
Smokin' Joe's restaurant on 49th Street and have addressed their concerns
about smoke to Gulfport City Council several times. Salmon, who recently ran
unopposed for former Vice-Mayor Bob Worthington's seat on city council, spoke
during the public comment session of the meeting. She expressed concern for
the potential effects of the smoker on Gulfport Elementary students.
"Asthma is on the rise with school-age children, especially in schools where
the children come from African-American families or low-income families,
which is a description of Gulfport Elementary. About half the population is
African-American; 3 are considered disadvantaged economically," Salmon
told the P&Z board.
Both parties cited health concerns as a reason for the P&Z board to vote
against the smoker.
"The smoke is unregulated. You can fix this readily enough by installing a
certified stove by the EPA... there's a right way to do it; Red Lobster does it,"
Gildaurakis told the board. The EPA-certified stoves, according to the 2006
EPA document, Guidance for Quantifying and Using Emission Reductions
from Voluntary Woodstove Changeout Programs in State Implementation
Plans, appear to refer to wood-burning stoves used primarily for heat or in
homes rather than for industrial uses.
Reeseback submitted past complaints about his smoker, complaints he
said originated from one individual. The complaints, the P&Z noted, were
unverified and Reeseback never received a violation. Reeseback's neighbors
spoke to the P&Z and told the board that although Reeseback smoked food in
his driveway, they had no complaints. Reeseback's potential new neighbors on
Gulfport Boulevard, including Caldwell Realtor Poul Hornsleth, also spoke in
favor of the smoker.
City staff recommended approval for the restaurant, which will have takeout,
outdoor seating, and limited indoor seating. If problems arise from his use of
a smoker, Reeseback told the city, he will extend the smokestack by 20 feet,
use an exhaust hood, and install a triple filter application. The filter will have
three stages: a first stage that gets changed monthly, a second stage charcoal
filter that gets changed every six months, and a third stage filter that gets
changed annually.
Newcomb and Hastings both had questions and suggestions for Reeseback.
"I love this stuff myself; I'm asking questions because I have concerns,"
Newcomb said. He asked for an analysis of emissions from smoker
"There is no standard set for the particulates coming out of a smoker,"
Hastings told him. "You have nothing to judge it against." As for the idea that
the smoker shouldn't operate because it was a nuisance, Hastings disagreed.
"We don't have a nuisance here because he hasn't even operated," Hastings
Gildausakis disagreed with Hastings during the meeting and stood and
approached the board, shouting at Hastings. Chairwoman Jeri Reed told
Gildausakis to take his seat and he refused. Police came into council chambers
as Gildausakis went back to his seat; the officer stayed in the chambers until
the meeting adjourned. He then ensured the Gildausakis family made it to
their car without incident.
Despite the small but passionate group opposing the smoker, most residents
and businesses spoke in favor of allowing Smokin' J's to open a permanent
restaurant. Several residents likened the smoker emissions to that of wood-
burning fireplaces throughout the city.
"The issue seems to be the smoke. So what's next? (Are we going to) go around
and close down all the fireplaces in town?" P&Z member Rudy Leopold said.

A Passion for Herbs and Spices
1) The first Sunday of each month
.. at Boyd Hill Nature Preserve,
Mona Radler shares her passion
for herbs and spices in an
entertaining way. This month's
topic was understanding the
uses of herbs and spices. She
showed, for example, how a mix
of paprika, dried tomato, onion,
basil and cilantro could be used
three different ways depending
on what you were cooking. If
you wanted a marinade just add
cider vinegar or for a rub add
some oil. The dry mix is great with
breadcrumbs for your own stuffing
mix. Radler explained herbs and
q spices go beyond the cook pot for
cleaning and healing. She tailors
the classes to the interests of
the students and provides some
hands on opportunities. Radler
,*- has studied herbs and spices on
her own for more than 30 years
.- and sells them at the Saturday
morning market in St. Petersburg.

Gulfport Yacht Club Kicks Off 2010 Racing Season

fostering a dog. Foster homes are
not responsible for any vet bills or
expenses. The rescue will transport
the dog and take care of any
veterinary needs. The rescue has a
trainer available for you to use. In
addition, they act as a support system

night, if you have questions about
the dog's behavior, health, etc... You
are not alone! But the best reason of
all to foster is the reward of knowing
that you saved a life.

Please fill out a volunteer application
at www.floridadoggiepaws.com or
call Florida Doggie Paws at 813-
283-1695 and open your heart and
your home to one of these poor dogs
that just needs a place to stay for a
few weeks until they can find their
forever home.

PRAYER TO ST. JUDE This novena has
never been known to fail. This novena must be
said for 9 consecutive days. Publication must
be promised. Oh Holy St. Jude, Apostle and
Martyr, great in virtue and rich in miracles,
near kinsman of Jesus Christ, faithful inter-
cessor of all who invoke your special patron-
age in time of need, to you I have recourse
from the depth of my heart and humbly beg
to whom God has given great power to come
to my assistance. Help me in my present
urgent petition. In return, I promise to make
your name known and call you to be invoked.
St. Jude, pray for us all who invoke your aid.
Amen. Say 3 Our Fathers, 3 Hail Marys & 3
Gloria's. R.S.

- St. Michael, the Archangel, Defend Us In
Battle; Be Our Defense Against the Wicked-
ness and Snares of the Devil. May God Re-
buke Him We Humbly Pray; and Do You Oh
Prince of the Heavenly Host, By the Power
of God, Thrust Into Hell Satan and the Other
Evil Spirits Who Prowl About the World For the
Ruin of Souls. Amen. St. Michael, I Resort
to Your Protection and in My Faith, Offer This
Light Which Shall Burn Every Tuesday. Com-
fort Me in My Difficulties and While Lodging in
the House of Our Savior Intercede for Me and
My Family That We Will Be Able to Hold God
Close to Our Hearts and Be Provided for in All
of Our Necessities. I Beseech You, to Have
Infinite Pity in Regard to Favors I ask of You
(Name Them) So That I May Be Able To Over-
come All Difficulties as You Did the Dragons
at Your Feet. Our Father (Say 3 Times). Hail
Mary (Say 3 Times). Glory Be (Say 3 Times).
This Prayer is to be Said 9 Tuesdays, in Suc-
cession and Each Tuesday a Candle Shal
Be Lighted and a Copy of This Prayer Lft in
the Church to Help Another Soul in Distress
and Support the Devotion to St. Michael. This
Miraculous Saint Grants Everything, No Mat-
ter How Difficult, Before the Termination of 9
Tuesday. G.F.
