Litigation Update
ST. PETE BEACH- A recent settlement offer by the
city to resolve land development litigation was rejected

before its May 11 meeting the city commission authorized

McCormick that included another election.
Basically under the city's proposal the voters wouldvote
again on comprehensive plan changes and development
regulations approved in a June 2008 election.

As a high school librarian for 17
years Ruscella had summers off so
she pursued her interest in British

master's thesis on Thomas Hardy

Katana's Hope
By Leigh Clifton
At 2 12 years old, Katana Morgan looks
just like any other little rambunctious child,
on the go, a hundred miles an hour, giggly
and sweet with big, doe eyes and curly red
hair. But by looking at her, you wouldn't
know that she's almost died- twice or that
she suffers from the silent disease of Type
One Diabetes. Her blood sugar is so off, that
the range seems impossible; from 40 to over
800, measured in small drops of blood her
grandmother, often in tears, has to quietly
withdraw from her grandbaby's tiny fingers
at least four times a day.
See Katana, page 16

The lawsuits included concerns on
the ballot language in that election.
They want more specifics about
height and density in each district on
the ballot, said Mayor Mike Finnerty.
The city commission will review the
counter offer at a shade meeting on
May 20 which precedes a commission
workshop session.

Ruscella then transitioned to college
libraries for 25 years including
Georgia State, University of Central
Florida, University of North Carolina
at Chapel Hill and University of
South Florida.
"We are very fortunate to have
someone of Phyllis' caliber coming to
our community," said City Manager
Mike Bonfield at a recent city
commission meeting.
After retiring briefly from academic
libraries Ruscella who turns 64 this
year rediscovered she really enjoyed
the day-to-day contact with patrons
while filling in for seven months at a
public library in Clearwater. So she
decided to come to St. Pete Beach,
"...where I can really be a librarian
again as well as manage a smaller
staff and really get to know the

Gulfport Endorses Get
Ready Tampa Bay
"I think that this is very cool and
very forward for our region," Vice-
Mayor Michele King said of the "Get
Ready Tampa Bay" initiative, which
will support getting cities ready for
electric and hybrid vehicles.
Although the city voted to support
the initiative, spearheaded by the
Tampa Bay Regional Planning
Council, it does not mean that the
city will have to provide charging
stations for the vehicles. It instead
supports businesses doing so.
"The idea is to make sure that
our region is prepared; people can't
buy them unless they can recharge
them," the vice-mayor explained.
"I'm very pleased that the Tampa
Bay Regional Planning Council has
jumped on this."

About $4,000 of the cost comes from

Audition for Summer
One Act Festival
The Gulfport Community Players
will be holding auditions for
their ever popular Summer One
Act Festival on May 24 and 25.
Auditions begin promptly at 7 p.m.
All interested people are urged to
try out for a part in one or more of
these relatively short plays. These
plays offer a variety of both comedy
and drama, and might well be a
perfect opportunity for newcomers
to get their feet wet in community
theater. The sets and blocking are
rather simple, and there is not a
lot of dialogue to memorize. If you
have a resume, bring it with you to
the auditions. There will be a total
of seven short plays and they will
run at the Hickman Theater from
July 8 through July 18.
There are several directors for
these plays and they will need a
number of male and female actors,
ranging in age from 18 on up. Feel
free to stop by their Back Door
Theater, located at 4919 17 Avenue
S. in Gulfport and try your luck
landing a part. This theater is just
off 49th St. S. and there are signs
at the turn off to their parking lot.
Good luck!

Talking Continues on
Traditional Hotel District
ST. PETE BEACH- The commission
will focus on the Traditional Hotel
District in the Pass-a-Grille area at
a workshop May 20 at 6:30 p.m. In
2008 the city commission established
a special land development code
standards to allow and guide
redevelopment of hotel and motel
establishments in the Pass-a-Grille
Commissioner Bev Garnett said
she did not think people understood
the ramifications of the ordinance
and she had asked the commission
at its May 11 meeting to put a six-
month hold on rezoning property to
the traditional hotel district. "I think
we need to relook at what's allowed.
There's a wonderful fabric down
The commission decided not to put a
moratorium on the traditional hotel
district. "I don't think we need a
moratorium at this time, Finnerty
said. "To put a moratorium right now
seems to continue the burning fire of
separation in the city."

Vice Mayor Parent said he thought
the moratorium was reactionary. "To
me it almost sounds like lets hold off
on everything in Pass-a-Grille... I am
a great believer in planning ahead. I
think this is a reaction to something
that's not comfortable." Parent
added, "If someone wants to put a
personal nuclear power plant in their
backyard, maybe we ought to have a
moratorium on that."
"I can't see a reasonfor a moratorium,"
Commissioner Al Halpern said. "All
the requests have to come before
the commission anyway. It's not
automatic. Let's have the planning
board and historic preservation board
look at the ordinance and bring back
A resident said during the public
comment on the ordinance, originally
most of the homes in Pass-a-Grille
were summer homes. People decided
to tear them down. All this stems
back to people wanting to live out
there year round.
The commission will discuss at the
workshop areas of the traditional
hotel ordinance that may need more
details on May 20. Then they plan



ft~ff k

to provide the planning board and
historic preservation board with
guidance for making changes.
"I think this is not a loss. I think
this is a win-win to look at this,"
Garnett said.

Pension Planning
ST. PETE BEACH- The city plans
to have a consultant look at the
unfunded liability in its pension
funds that will have to be funded
in future years. The amount was
reported in March at $14 million.
Actuarial Concepts of Jacksonville
will look at the ways to address this
future shortfall.
City Manager Bonfield said it's
critical to understand the actual
cost and savings with the various
"Our pension funds are in dire
straits right now, ... (I) strongly
recommend approving (this study)
to know exactly where we stand,"
Mayor Finnerty said.

Don Cesar Area
ST. PETE BEACH- The city
commission approved about $24,000
of engineering design work to make
the Don Cesar area safer including
sidewalk, crosswalk and roadway
improvements. City Manager
Bonfield said the study involves the
entire road network around the Don
Cesar. Once designed the project
will go out to bid. "The plan is to do
the work this summer," he said.

New Ordinance
Requires Pain Clinics
to Acquire Permits
At its May 4 commission meeting,
the Pinellas County Board of County
Commissioners passed a 180-day
moratorium on the establishment of
pain management clinics in Pinellas
County. The moratorium goes into
effect June 6, 2010.
During the time of the moratorium,
no new pain management clinics shall
open for business, unless exempted
within the ordinance. Furthermore,
any existing pain management
clinics must register with Pinellas
County and obtain a permit from
the Department of Justice and
Consumer Services. Applications to
the department must be postmarked
by June 6. Those who fail to do so
may face a $500 fine or court-ordered
shut down.
Permit applications are available
from the Pinellas County Department
of Justice and Consumer Services
website. Applicants must:
1) Provide proof of having registered
with the Florida Department of

Health (as required by Florida
statute) prior to May 7, 2010.
2) Provide proof that the company
had been operating as a pain
management clinic prior to the
enactment of the ordinance.
3) Furnish a sworn statement
attesting to the truth and accuracy of
the information provided.
The Pinellas County moratorium on
pain management clinics continues
through Oct. 1, when standards
adopted by the Florida Legislature go
into effect to regulate the operation
of pain management clinics.

Interested parties may call the
Pinellas County Department of
Justice and Consumer Services at

Help Send Youth
to Retreat
Most Holy Name Youth Group at 5800
15 Avenue S. is holding a rummage
sale featuring over 5000 items for
sale on May 29 and 30 to raise money
for their teens to attend a retreat in
Lake Wales at the end of June. Due
to the economy many families cannot
afford to send their teens on this trip
so the youth have decided to hold a
massive rummage sale to defray the
cost of this trip so that all may have
the opportunity to attend. The sale
hours are Saturday, May 29 from 8-4
p.m. and May 30 from 8-2 p.m. Please
come support the Gulfport teens. Also
on May 29 The Tampa Bay Symphony
will be performing at 5800 15 Avenue

Another Point on Oil
Dear Editor: In regards to the
recent Letter entitled A Point on
Oil, I really have no idea where Mr.
Orlandella is coming from or trying
to say! But the point he made about
oil always oozing from the soil may
be true over eons but certainly
nature never intended barrels of it
to gush from the Gulf sea floors into
the environment. He has an old 1776
quote on government regulations
that may seem true, but we are the
people who vote in the government
representatives and so who is to
blame? And as to the 'high wire' and
'windmills to oil'... maybe BP should
go out of business. I myself would
like to see a boycott of BP and also,
a slap made to Publix for its recent
offer of a discount credit for BP in
one of their fliers. What were they
thinking and what are you thinking,
Mr. Orlandella?

Good Hard Candy
Dear Editor: Just wanted to let you
know that last week's Hard Candy is
the best I've read yet. My experience
is similar.
I've lived in Florida for over 30
years now, and I've always felt that
I've been surrounded by folks who
just didn't understand what they had
here, or what they were doing with
it. What most displaced northerners
envision as 'Florida' is a concept
drawn from postcards, spring break
misadventures and chamber of
commerce dreams of avarice. Most
would probably raise an eyebrow and
turn away upon hearing that few
palm trees are actually native here,
flamingoes are African imports, and
that barrier island beaches, without

desperate local municipalities
spending fortunes (our taxes) to
prevent them from escaping, crawl
like tired serpents down the coastline
and out to sea.
My Ft. DeSoto moment came when,
back in my old life as a teacher, I
was walking along some trails in
the park that I planned to take some
students down later for an outdoor
class. I heard a rustling in the
leaves behind me and turned to see
a raccoon following me at what she
must have thought of as a discrete
distance. When I stopped and turned
to look at her she ran over to a hose
bib at the side of the path and stood
up, leaning on it with her front legs.
At first I didn't get it but, after I
walked further along and she kept
following me, I once again turned to
look at her and she again ran over
to the closest pipe sticking out of the
ground and stood up against it again.
Oh. I walked over to the pipe, turned
the handle and backed away a few
feet so she could run over and get
a drink. It was an awfully hot day.
Apparently she realized that water
came magically from pipes, and that
the big animals in pants knew how
to make it flow. You just had to get
their attention!
After she drank, and splashed
water all over her face, she looked at
me again, expressionless, and then
ran off into the trees. I could so hear
her in my mind shouting, "Sucker!
Guilted you into it!"
I knelt down in the wet sand, took a
drink myself, splashed water all over
my face too, and turned the valve
off. I told that story to students for
years afterwards, often with my eyes
I would pay many times the proposed
fee to, from time to time, not wearing
out my welcome, re-enter this world,
the real world, and I would volunteer
to stand by the gate with a baseball
bat to keep the pigs out.

Maybe we'll see each other in
'church' sometime. Thank you so
much for reminding me!
Jon Pettay

Right on the Money
Dear Editor: With regard to Hard
Candy "Spin, Baby, Spin." in the
May 6, 2010 edition of the Gabber,
congratulations on a very well
written professional article. Besides
that it was right on about the media
outlets bowing to advertising revenue
rather than just reporting the news.
The media and, in particular, cable
news does not take any responsibility
for ruining careers, real estate values
and whatever collateral damage
occurs on+ the way to more revenue.
I was living in the Bay area when the
Loma Prieta quake came during the
World Series. We lived in Saratoga
about 15 miles from the epicenter in
the Santa Cruz Mountains. We had
some damage but it did not exceed
the earthquake deductible (turns out
very few households did). We camped
out in our driveway without power
for about a day eating what was in
the fridge.
The next day I heard we had
power in the village so we went
down. When I saw the news on TV I
thought this was a hell of a lot worse
than I thought. After another day
of watching commentators standing
in front of the same old damage I
told the wife "these guys are really
pumping this". Well, just try selling
some of that Bay Area real estate
after that reporting.
It turns out there was no significant
damage to the high rise buildings in
San Francisco because the buildings
were designed to withstand a quake.
Bet nobody heard about that!

Katana, from front page
Hers is a tentative existence;
measured in half-bananas and
insulin, water and exercise all
designed to keep Katana alive long
enough to get an $8500.00 insulin
pump that could save her life.
Arque (R.K.) Morgan, Katana's
grandmother, is a persistent,
tenacious woman who knows the
healthcare system. She heads a
company that, among other things,
provides living assistance for the
disabled and helps the medically
challenged. So on February 18, when
her 15 month old granddaughter
Katana got very sick, she rushed
her to All-Children's Hospital's ER.
Katana was almost comatose, with
a fever and unresponsive. She was
diagnosed with an ear infection and
bronchitis, as well as having had
a mild case of food poisoning from
a local restaurant. She was given
antibiotics and sent home. But she
wasn't well. On March 20th, she was
again rushed to the hospital, nearly
comatose. This time, one of the
doctors noticed a really sweet smell
on her breath, but never checked her
blood sugar.
Arque has Type 2 Diabetes and
recognized the signs... Katana most
certainly had Diabetes and she
needed treatment right away. By
that Saturday, Katana couldn't hold
her bottle and was fading. Arque
rushed her back to the hospital

where she insisted they test her for
diabetes. By the time they tested
her, for diabetes and meningitis,
Katana's sugar was over 800 and the
doctors told Arque she should get her
family members together. For six
days she laid in ICU, comatose for
four of them, hooked up to an insulin
IV trying to regulate her sugar.
After the fourth day, Katana's sugar
finally came down to 200 (normal
range is 90-140). She came home
to start a life of endless shots and
testing every day, of bruises on her
legs and raw finger tips.
Arque called her relatives in North
Carolina and had a friend help her
get Katana into Duke University's
medical program, where they gave
her a definite diagnosis of Type
I Diabetes. They suggested that
Katana get an insulin pump, but
there were differing opinions between
Katana's Florida doctors and the ones
at Duke. Duke felt she could tolerate
a pump; USF felt she was too young,
(average age is around 5). Either
way, Katana, who was originally
covered under her grandfather's
health insurance from his work,
was dumped from that insurance
after her grandfather was laid off
suddenly. Because Arque made too
much money, Katana wasn't eligible
for Medicaid and no regular health
insurer would take her on because of
her pre-existing condition.
"I thought what if we just bypass
the insurance and buy the pump

outright," Arque said. "But when
they told us it was $8500.00, we
knew we couldn't afford that. They
were stuck and Katana was getting
more and more difficult to regulate
her sugar.
The family made do with the insulin
shots; Arque silently weeping when
Katana cried from the skin pricks
and shots in her legs.
"She would just look at me and say
'all done, thank you' to me," Arque
said. "It just about broke my heart."
Katana must now go up to Duke
University Hospital every three
months, staying for 10 days for
testing; they've already had her on a
trial period for an insulin pump. So
far, she's done well, but it's the cost
of the pump itself that's prohibitive.
Last Saturday, Arque's husband,
who is a musician in the band that
plays at the American Legion 125,
organized some of his musician
friends to play at a fundraiser so
they could buy that insulin pump
for Katana. Nine bands showed up,
the Legion sold raffles tickets and
ribs and chicken on the BBQ were
selling like hotcakes. The place was
overflowing with people, who just
wanted to come out and see this
little red head who stole everybody's
In all, almost $10,000 was raised
from the generosity of others; Katana
will get $8500 to pay for the pump
that will save her life. The rest of
the money will go into the Wounded
Warriors Fund the Legion has
established to help soldiers injured
in Afghanistan and Iraq.
The Morgan's have started a
fund for other children who may be
suffering a similar fate.
"I figured, she can't be the only
child who has had this much trouble
getting help for this disease." Arque
said. "So we've started a fund in her
name called Katana's Hope. Anyone
can donate or mail to: 4898 163rd
Ave N. It is a non-profit that will
use the donations for family support
of the sick child and for the insulin
supplies and doctors visit if they are
uninsured or underinsured."
At that moment, Katana decided
to run for the Bouncy House. She
climbed up and jumped right in,
just like any other normal 2 year old
would do.

Tawana Cook, Gulfport: "I don't
think they should because the kids
already get a lot of days off, including
half-days on Wednesdays now. I
think they should be in school. It's
the Sunday of that weekend that's
the most important, with Easter. I
always have to work on Good Friday.
It's the way they've always done it."

tagmar mvllroy, 01. reie tleacner):
"I feel they should because it's an
important holiday to a great number
of people. Look at the record and see
how many students are absent and
how many teachers call in sick. If
they close, it will save money as well.
I think we try so hard not to offend
people, but the fact is we just can't
keep one minority happy. Besides, it
saves the school district money; it's
a strict budgetary time right now.
It doesn't seem right that on Good
Friday, a bus should ride with only
10 kids or less on it when there are
usually 25 or 30. For me, it's quite an
important day anyway. I would like
to have it off, but strictly objectively
thinking, it just makes fiscal sense to

Gabber May 20 May 26, 2010

Bruce Bartlett, St. Pete:
"Absolutely! I think we should close.
When I went to school, we were
always closed on Good Friday. I
don't think it's inappropriate to have
religion in the schools; I think it's
part of our lives and heritage. A few
others may argue that it shouldn't
influence our children, but I think
that's how we got to where we are
today. We're losing our belief in God
and the striving for a better life with
better values. We've sort of lost our
identity. Growing up, a lot of our
lives evolved around the church and
our local community. Back then, you
could count on a neighbor to say hello,
you didn't have to lock your doors.
Everyone helped one another. I think
that's because we were instilled with
a sense of family values and respect;
traditional values of helping one
another in times of need. But now it
seems we've lost our way. Now you
wouldn't even think of leaving your
doors unlocked, some neighbors live
their whole lives without speaking
to one another and if someone sees
something, they take it, without
a thought. A lot of that is because
we've lost the concept of church
instilled beliefs- beliefs that tell us to
love one another, help one another.
The kids aren't getting taught the
family values that would keep them
from getting into trouble; that would
instill in them the importance of
respect, generosity and faith. I think
we've really lost our way and need to
get back to the fundamentals of the
Ten Commandments. We need our
kids to know right from wrong."

Chris Knowles, Gulfport: 1N1y
kids are now grown past that point
but I would have to say I think they
should close on Good Friday. I think
it would be good to give families a
long weekend together to celebrate
the Easter holiday."

SPCA Pet of the Week
At almost 120 lbs., Popper has had more than his share
of food. To get him in shape and keep him healthy, he
will benefit from a strict diet and lots of exercise. His
previous owners hated to give him up, but were moving
and couldn't take him along. As with most black labs,
She is a jolly guy with a warm, friendly heart. Popper
has lived with children and is gentle with toddlers. He
knows sit and shake, is housetrained and has good leash
manners. At over 5 years old, Popper is still playful and
active. Because of his size, he will do best with children
8 years of age or older. Meet Popper at SPCA Tampa Bay, 9099 130 Avenue N.

ItStoroscoDe Guide

TAURUS (April 20-May 20).
Professional jealousy is one of those
things that can either help or hinder.
To the extent that it compels you
to do better and better work, it's a
positive. You can let it drive you in
this way this week. But it's a fine
line. If you're staring in the mirror
wondering why not you, then you
probably need to let it go.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). People
love you. Young and old, rich and
poor, you just have that uncanny
ability to connect to all different
types. It's not complicated -- they
love you because you are interested
in their stories. Now someone you
barely know wants to tell you his
story, and you'll be intrigued enough
to listen a long while.
CANCER (June 22-July 22).
Whoever said hard work was its own
reward was missing a screw on his
cranium cap. You are not afraid to
bust a gut working on something,
but it's usually to achieve something
else you want or need. Working for
its own sake is called futility and is
most aptly filed under the category
of sickness, not virtue.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). No friend
of the banal, you still find yourself
in circumstances where you must
deal with ideas and people that are
not very inspiring. Remember that
everyone has something to teach
you, even the dull, and strive to
work with the most creative people
you can find.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Good
friends are sometimes all you've got.
After all, they are the ones in the day-
to-day trenches with you, watching
you make your way as best you can
through this world of glorious and
frightening uncertainty. This week
one of your buddies makes a clutch
move. It would be best to thank this
person in writing.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Feelings
are mercurial. The daily pitch and
yaw can be more harrowing than a
Six Flags rollercoaster. Yes, you're
tall enough to ride, but it's critical
that you understand the inevitability
of this endless up and down. Call it
a survival skill. Now throw up your
hands and yell as the thrill goes
straight to your belly.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Some
people prefer the phone; others hate
it. Some like to communicate via
e-mail, and others thrill to the hard
copy. Then there are the face-to-
face types... You will be successful
when you research those you want
to befriend and influence. Find out
the mode that is preferred before you
make your move.
21). Though it's said that opposites
attract, in most instances people
will choose to hang out with the ones
most like themselves. Still, there will
be some exceptions this week, and
you'll enjoy them. It turns out there
is something very intriguing offered
by the one who is strikingly different
from you.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19).
You'll be getting to the heart of
things, even in relationships that do
not right now seem too impactful.
Your conversations will have great
significance. You'll affect someone
deeply, though neither of you may
realize it in the moment. Time reveals
the profundities of seemingly routine
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). The
thing about adding new experiences
to your life is that sometimes you get
more than you bargain for. And in
matters such as love, if you're doing
it for real, you absolutely can't get
into it without being affected forever.
You can read and pontificate all you
want on this one, but the only way to
learn it is to dive in.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You
know what you want, but do you
have what it takes to actually have
it in your life? The care and feeding
of your dreams will cost more than
you think. Luckily, you are also
deeper, stronger and richer than you
think, so it may all just even out.
Keep going even when things get
challenging this week.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). We
know your sign mate Leonardo da
Vinci as a genius for the ages. It
might surprise you that he spent
his last years wondering whether he
had made a difference with his life.
You're not alone in your feelings of
self-doubt. Persevere anyway. Those
beside you and those who come after
you will be grateful.
This Week's Birthdays: The year
is marked with optimism. In the next
seven weeks, you will be busy doing
the things you enjoy the most. Social
and romantic relationships fill your
schedule and your heart all at once.
August will test your determination.
This is just the trial you need in
order to find your niche. You'll take
a risk in September, and there will
be financial rewards in November.
A strong man (perhaps a boss or
teacher) figures prominently in your
stellar plans for the new year.

If you wish to view GTV615 on

Good Reasons to
Adopt an Older Cat
Friends of Strays has a special offer
for the months of May and June for
all adoptions of older cats. Anyone
adopting a cat that is over three
years old will receive a gift basket
with everything needed to take kitty
to their new forever home. All cats
have been neutered or spayed and
have been vaccinated.
There are many good reasons to
consider adopting an older cat,
1. Older cats are already trained to
use a litter box.
2. Cats are already past the
rambunctious stage and are more
peaceful and calm than young

3. Older cats are very grateful
for a home and usually make the
transition easily.
4. Finally, if you are older, having
an older cat makes just makes an
excellent choice.
Friends of Strays has several
beautiful, older cats that have been
at the shelter for some time. If you
can open your home to one of them
please come meet them! The shelter
is located at 2911 47 Avenue N. in
St. Petersburg. For more information

Susan, My Sweetie,
It took a long time for me to meet
someone I cared about like you.
Your warm smile, generous ways
and words so kind and true.
Our friendship meant
so much to me,
Our times together were the best.
But unfortunately the
Lord called you home,
he knew you needed rest.
I will always remember you,
You will forever hold a
place in my heart.
And when I am called
home to be with you,
I promise we'll never part!
Love & miss you,

A Tribute to Vic
May 22, 2008
Poker was his game,
Vic was his name.

with cards or a cue stick in his hand.
Vic was the man.
His smile and jokes
infectious to all.
We will miss you, Vic
as we continue our game,
but your laughter and smile
will always remain.
I will always love you, Fran

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, retiredcouples, 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.
Visit their website at www.pieusa.
org or call 1-877-534-3144 or email
to patlittrell@pieusa.org.

Become a Mentor
Gulf Coast Community Care needs
volunteers age 30 and older for its
mentoring program. Volunteers are
matched with children who need a
positive adult role model.
Many of the children are in kinship
care or live with a single parent who
is going to school and working. There
is a special need for volunteers for
children of all ages. Volunteers give
the gift of time to one child and are
provided social events and support
by agency staff. No experience is
necessary. There are no costs.
Volunteers spend a few hours a week
in simple activities such as reading,
fishing, baking, teaching a craft, or
visiting a park with a child. We have
children throughout Pinellas County
waiting for mentors!
To learn how you can make a
difference, call Adults Mentoring
Children at (727) 479-1841.

Have you got a
AV IYG ,question for your
0 city government?
Email your request to News@theGabber.com
By Cathy Salustri
City of Gulfport
Q: (This question is an extension of the article the Gabber ran two weeks ago
about harassment complaints surrounding former interim attorney Minkoff)
Does Gulfport's current council know what to do now if they receive a
complaint? What is the process for them? Does the city require employees,
management, and city council to take a class on sexual harassment?
Another aspect is the implication of third party contractors. Tech Data fired
a firm because their construction workers were making catcalls at female
employees as they came to and from work. Is there language in the City's
contracts that protects the City?
A: The short answer is yes, they should. City Manager Jim O'Reilly
answered these questions for the Gabber. Here's how the city of Gulfport's
hierarchy works, as set forth by the city charter: employees fall into one of two
classes: regular and charter. The city attorney, manager, and clerk are charter
employees. Everyone else is a regular employee. The city charter says that
all regular employees work under the direction of the city manager. Charter
employees answer directly to the City Council. The city's charter defines
council's roles and responsibilities, one of which is that they can't direct or
counsel regular employees. Council does have direct access to all charter
If there's a formal complaint about a charter employee, the process now is
this: the city manager then makes the city council aware of the complaint
through the city clerk. At that point it would be appropriate for the council to
address the complaint, either in private or at a council meeting.
All regular employees and city management attend classes that include
harassment education when they're hired, and the city provides this program
at a minimum on a bi-annual basis to all employees.
As a condition of their contract, third party contractors agree to appropriate
work place actions and to comply with all applicable federal, state, and local
laws, regulations, and ordinances, including, but not limited to, certain civil
rights and anti-discriminatory laws.
If they do not do so, the city can legally terminate the contract.

I By Bill Northrop B_Northrop@theGabber.com

Drill Baby Drill
W ith a tsunami of oil
threatening to wipe out
the beaches and all water-
related industries from Mobile, AL
to Jacksonville, FL, I'm still for drill-
baby-drill. Pretty awful, huh? Well,
nothing is absolute, so drilling can't
be indiscriminate and can't be on a
"trust me" basis. But, not drilling at
all? Not realistic.
It seems that we have enough
regulations, but the government
agencies enforcing the regulations,
simply waived them. Then, the
drillers, platform operators, and
contracted safety services made a
whole lot of assumptions. Actually,
tens of thousands of oil holes have
already been dug without this
happening. That's why all the
assumptions and finger pointing,

political and otherwise.
But, banning off-shore drilling
forever? Not going to happen and
shouldn't. Other countries including
Venezuela and Brazil are doing it
and Cuba, just over the horizon, is
getting ready to. Not that we should
do it because they are doing it. As for
banning drilling in Alaska because of
the mistake in the Gulf, doesn't make
sense unless you're for stopping oil
drilling nearly everywhere. There's a
valid argument for that, but only if
you're in favor of grounding airlines
and putting pedals in place of engines
on cars.
Simply put, we need oil to keep the
economy going. Without a decent
economy tourism won't happen and
the fishing industries won't have
much of a market. There's nothing
on the horizon that's going to replace
oil. Wind and batteries and sunshine

aren't going to put a dent in the
industrial needs of this and every
other country in the world.
Oil replacement is only going
to come with a major discovery.
Maybe gravitational power, or
magnetic power (nearly the same),
or power extracted from the air, will
revolutionize the world but, it won't
be tomorrow. Natural gas can cut into
coal use and some petroleum use, too,
but it won't do the trick. Too bad we
can't capture political hot air.
In the meantime, we're stuck with
today. Today, we need to cut back
and conserve and preserve, and
ration. Nothing like gasoline at $5
or $6 a gallon to make that happen.
Same thing with scarcity. Anyone
remember the oil embargo of the
70s? That changed things until it
got back to normal and we went back
to normal. How would high prices
come about? One cause would be
government taxes. Another would
be a Mid-East war or another Arab
oil embargo. And, another might be
the cap-and-trade bill congress is
contemplating now. Oh, that's right,
they changed the name to something
about energy so you wouldn't know it
was the same thing. Raise the cost of
everything and send the money to the
government and that should do it.
Of course, we've already conserved
a lot of energy by depressing the
economy. We're using less fuel,
polluting less, emitting less carbon
dioxide, just by knocking people out
of their jobs. We're at 10 per cent
unemployment. Just think how good
it would be at 15 per cent.
Drill-baby-drill, might sound
obscene now, but relying on the rest
of the world for our supply will be
more than obscene.

Road near the Sweetbay Supermarket. He shared how a woman was hit
within the last week with crosswalk lights on and how a man hit in Feb-
ruary is paralyzed from the waist down. He shared about safer crosswalk
lighting with rapid flashing beacons that is available and state approved.
The cost is $26,000 to $28,000 per intersection, he said

"I would like to have a discussion on how to expedite this."
-Commissioner Al Halpern on seeing what could be done about getting
safer crosswalks in town. The city is going to get a different color light in
this week, Mayor Finnerty said.

"Is there something we can do to raise our joint voices to FDOT...
That seems to be the nastiest location in town."
-Vice Mayor Jim Parent, on working more aggressively with the state on
fixing the intersection.

"Can we go out and buy these lights for Blind Pass Road.. if we
wait four or five months we may have another (accident)."
- Commissioner Marvin Shavlan, on having the city go ahead and im-
prove the intersection instead of waiting through the state process. The
city decided to approach the state again on the process of improving the

"I am compassionate about that crosswalk but how about hiring

You & THE


By Robert J. Myers, Esquire
Am I Under Arrest?
If you are arrested in the State of
Florida, the first decision you need
to make is whether or not you should
speak to a law enforcement officer.
This is a critical decision because
any oral or written statements you
make may be used against you in
your criminal court case. You are
under arrest when a law enforcement
officer takes you into custody in order
to hold you to answer for an alleged
criminal offense.
Under Florida law, a law enforcement
officer is normally required to
identify himself or herself as such
and to advise you that you are under
arrest. Remember, you maybe under
actual arrest even though no law
enforcement officer has stated "you
are under arrest." Legally, if you
have been significantly deprived of
your freedom of movement, you may
be under arrest.

M Street
Flea Market
'TOl of DoallI"

If a law enforcement officer has
reasonable suspicion that you are
involved in criminal activity, that
officer may require you to provide
identification and explain your
whereabouts at a particular time
without arresting you. At this point
in time, a law enforcement officer
may ask questions of you in order to
complete her/his field interrogation.
You are not legally required to answer
these questions. However, if you
refuse to properly identify yourself,
a law enforcement officer then may
claim she/he has grounds to arrest
you for loitering under Florida law.
At the end of any temporary detention
by a law enforcement officer, you
must be arrested or released.

Doggie Paws Rescue
Needs Volunteers
Florida Doggie Paws Rescue, Inc. is
an all-volunteer foster-based organi-
zation. This grass roots rescue orga-
nization was formed one year ago by
seven dedicated people with one com-
mon goal: to save the dogs. The
group's mission is to responsibly res-
cue, rehabilitate, foster and find per-
manent loving homes for unwanted,
abandoned and abused small-to-me-
dium breed dogs throughout the state
of Florida.
The Rescue was established at the
end of January 2007 and by the end
of December, over 130 dogs had been
rescued, and over 100 of them had
been placed in their "forever homes".
Most of the dogs came from Levy
County Animal Services where ani-
mals are euthanized after only six
days if someone doesn't come to their
aid. All of these rescued animals have
turned into happy, healthy, well-ad-
justed dogs because of the love, care
and commitment of the volunteers of
Florida Doggie Paws Rescue.
The Rescue promotes the realities of
pet ownership, educating the public
concerning pet overpopulation and
the importance of spaying and neu-
tering pets; humane treatment of
animals through education and pub-
lic awareness; and microchipping
pets so that a lost pet can be reunited
with its family.
Volunteers are always needed to ac-
complish the Rescue's mission. Foster
homes for the dogs are an essential
part of the Rescue. In addition, there
are many other tasks to be completed
- computer work, phone calls, event
planning, fundraising, correspon-
dence, etc. All donations received go
toward expenses for the medical care
of the dogs and for keeping the web
site, post office box and telephone

Gulfport Girl Scout Troop 987

Surprises Pet Pal Shelter

By Leigh Clifton

The girls from Gulfport Girl Scout Troop 987 are all smiles as they present Scott Daly,
Operations Director for Pet Pal Animal Shelter, with a $1000 check. Pet Pal is a no kill,
non-profit shelter in south St. Pete.

Gulfport Girl Troop 987 had a very nice surprise for Pet Pal's Operations
Director Scott Daly last Saturday afternoon; they arrived as newly minted
Cadets with a bunch of giggles and a check for $1000.00 for the shelter. The
troop had combined the cookie sale's donated change, along with money raised
from a fundraiser the girls threw with their Brownie troop... It totaled almost
"These girls worked so hard to raise this money," Troop Leader Karen
Macauley said. "We had a small fundraiser when we helped our Brownies
earn their badges. Then we used the extra change left as a donation from our
cookie sales. It really added up and people were so generous."
Even more generous was Mary Ann Bruton, a friend of Macauley's. She and
Karen were in her kitchen talking when Macauley mentioned that the girls
were trying to raise money for the Pet Pal Shelter.
"She didn't even blink an eye," Karen said. "She turned to me and said
something incredible; that she would match any donation from the Scouts,
up to $500.00! Isn't that awesome? The girls were thrilled and really worked
hard to get to their $500.00 in a hurry."
The Pet Pal Shelter, like most in the area, operates on a shoe string budget
and relies heavily on donations and assistance from the community. In fact,
while the Girl Scout troop was admiring a room full of kitties, a mother cat
and her kittens were dropped off at the shelter.
"This money will come in so handy right now," Daly said. "These kitties
will need to be neutered and get shots. All that costs money, so I am so very
grateful to these wonderful girls."
Pet Pal will be hosting their 8th Annual I'tuppy Love Benefit" on Saturday,
May 22, from 7-10 pm at the Dolphin Beach Resort on St. Pete Beach. Tickets
are $50.00 in advance and can be purchased online at petpalanimalshelter.
com or call 727 328-7738. All proceeds go to the Pet Pal Animal Shelter's
Emergency Medical Fund, which rescues and rehabilitates sick and injured
pets. Pet Pal is a non-profit, no-kill shelter and is located at 405 22nd Street
South in St. Pete.

H By Cathy Salsri

A s the school year winds down
to a close, I anticipate the
onslaught of summer break--
some things eagerly, like the lack
of 217 individual school zones along
49th Street, each timed to make
the 15 minute trip to the Gabber
offices last roughly two and a half
days, and others not-so-eagerly, like
public pools filled with children who
smell like wet puppies, minus the
cuteness and any sort of ability to
behave. I look forward to the hottest
days of the year, summer fireworks,
and late sunsets. I view, with eager
anticipation, my cousin Michele's
annual visit, which invariably
involved a close examination of
beach bars and swimsuit shops from
Clearwater Beach south to Pass-a-
Michele teaches music in New York,
and she shows up every summer
looking remarkably pale, seeking sun
and something cute to wear under it.
Her trips offer me an excuse to act like
a tourist: we go looking for dolphin, on
deck boats, sailboats, and speedboats.
We sample every restaurant that
catches our eye, and doesn't matter if
it's a tourist trap (say, Shepherd's in
Clearwater Beach) or a superb locals
spot (think the Sandbar on St. Pete
Beach). Of course, I can do any of these
things any time I'd like, but she can't.
While I typing on this column, sitting
in a swimsuit and trying to hurry so
I can take Calypso for her mid-day
walk along on the beach, Michele has
to shape young minds. That much
time around kids makes me shudder,
but she loves it. Of course, she doesn't
get much time for herself, so the least
I can do for her when she visits is buy
her a burger at a beach bar.
Michele loves teaching. She buys
supplies with her own money and
spends hours of her own time working
on her lessons and (she teaches
music) concerts. I wonder how many
kids appreciate her effort. How many
of her students will one day say,
"Remember Ms. Salustri? I loved her
class; it made me want to sing all the
time." I had a few teachers like that.
Marie Grein taught 5th-grade

math, and while nice, she let nothing
slide. Aside from certain educational
building blocks, she taught us about
consequences. She told one of my
classmates she wouldn't give her
permission to go to a skating party
because she performed poorly on a
test. Shouldn't she study, instead?
Her counterpart, Ernest Johnson,
held us to the same standards.
He taught language arts, and this
included book reports, research
papers, and 50 vocabulary words a
week. We had to define each word,
identify its part of speech, write it out
five times, and use it in a sentence.
I had my first vestiges of anxiety in
Mr. Johnson's class, but I learned a
crapload of words. Crapload, I should
note, was not one of them.
Sporadic exposure to a teacher
can mold students, too: I decided to
be a writer because the elementary
school librarian told my class she
thought I would. I doubt Ms. Penny
Lawrence remembers that comment,
but I remember thinking, "Hey, I'll
try that!" and, well, it stuck. Feel
free to send any complaints about
this column to her, care of Belleair
Dave Byers and Gus Haynes, a
middle school social studies teacher
and a high school history teacher,
respectively, showed me how to
appreciate history. Mr. Byers led
our classes in campaign songs from
Herbert Hoover's election and war
songs from the wars (He once led
the entire school in a rousing chorus
of "Over There" in assembly.) Mr.
Haynes became "Gus" after I passed
the Advanced Placement exam
and received college credit for his
course. Gus taught us how to think
about history, and he taught us that
sometimes you had to read between
the lines of history books.
Of course, not every teacher leaves
a positive mark. My sophomore year
English teacher, a colleague later
joked, scarred me for life. Mrs. Parker
did not much care for passive voice,
and strictly prohibited the use of "to
be" and other helping verbs. Any
composition that used any of the
following verbs failed instantly: be,

being, been, is, am, are, was, were,
has, have, and had. Even today,
if I use one of these verbs, it hurts.
Mrs. Parker and I did not see eye to
eye on the craft of writing; she told
me I wrote poorly. It gives me great
comfort to know that she WAS wrong,
although her traumatic grammar
lesson made me a better writer.
English class improved with Frank
Black, the Unofficial World's Best
English Teacher. He taught me
how to structure a thesis and topic
sentence and taught me more about
professional writing than anyone else
until my senior year of college. I could
not feed myself as a writer without
his expertise.
One last teacher made a stirringly
profound impact on me: Dr. Jerry
Smith, who taught a college class
called "Identifying Florida Biota." I
took it to get out of dissecting things,
but I left his class with an enduring
appreciation for the the Sunshine
State. Dr. Smith, a biologist who also
taught, had real-world experience in
Florida, and every class involved a
field trip. Along with the rest of our
class, I made my first pilgrimage to
the Florida Keys with Dr. Smith. In
this class I learned how, despite of
or in spite of civilization, Florida's
muggy wildness exists in tandem
with people, sometimes as close as the
overgrown lot next to the Wendys. I
became a writer because of my grade
school librarian; I became a Florida
writer in love with the state because
of Dr. Smith.
These men and women shaped my
life as much as my parents. They
did so for remarkably little money,
and they certainly did so by giving of
themselves relentlessly to students
who, myself included, did not (at
least at the time) appreciate or
understand their efforts. It will not
try to contact them each and thank
them; I am one student of thousands.
They do not remember me, and that's
OK. I can pay it forward in my own
way, however minute, and honor
them every summer when I buy my
cousin a burger as I show her the life
teachers like her gave me under the
hot Florida sun.

Va*Mular bi o enin QupMdl Sae Yu Lib

at Bay Srgial Specialists

By Cathy Salustri

Vascular Technologist, Jamie Cor-
bett RDMS, RVT says, "it's a matter
of life and limb," and she's not making
a joke. The Technical Director of the
vascular lab at Bay Surgical Special-
ists knows how important vascular
health is to someone's overall health.
"Vascular disease," she explains "is
one of the leading causes of death-
and disability-in the United States.
Sadly, it's often left untreated until
someone has a stroke or a ruptured
aneurysm, or until they have to have
a leg amputated."
Dr. Paul Steven Collins, Jamie, Erin
and the entire team at Bay Surgical
Specialists are working to change
that. Using state-of-the-art GE equip-
ment, Bay Surgical Specialists offers
a vascular screening that, while not
covered by insurance, costs only $99.
Why should you get this screen-
ing? Well, over 150,000 people in the
United States die from a stroke every
year, one out of every 20 Americans
over 50 has peripheral arterial disease
(PAD), and over 15,000 Americans die
from a ruptured aneurysm every year.
Vascular screenings can detect all of
these things before they threaten to
kill you.
Who should get vascular screenings?
Anyone can get a vascular screen-
ing -you don't need a referral from
a doctor. People who have a family
history of abdominal aortic aneurysm,
currently smoke (or used to smoke),
have had open-heart surgery, heart
disease, high blood pressure, diabetes,
high cholesterol, or leg cramps while
walking should consider getting a
Other warning signs include dizzi-
ness, severe headaches, a change in
personality, or a change in mental
ability. People who have constant leg
pain, pain during exercise that goes
away after they rest, and people who
experience numbness or tingling on
one side of their body should also have
a vascular screening to see if those
warning signs are related to cardio-
vascular disease.
Two-thirds of people who have had
an abdominal aortic aneurysm did not
know they had one until it ruptured.
People with PAD over eight million
Americans can end up losing a leg
(or both) if the disease goes untreated.

Holy Spirit, you who solves all problems, who
lights all roads so that I can attain my goal, you
who give me the divine gifts to forgive and for-
get al evil against me and that in all instances
of my life you are with me, I want in this short
prayer to thank you for all things and confirm
once again that I never want to be separated
from you, even in spite of all material illusions.
I wish to be with you, in eternal glory. Thank
you for your mercy toward me and mine.
- 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.

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.
