Gulfport Hurricane Seminar
Tonight at Casino
The City of Gulfport will be hosting the 2010 Hurricane
Seminar tonight at 7 p.m. at the Historic Gulfport Casino
Ballroom at 5500 Shore Boulevard S. in Gulfport.
Several vendors will be involved in this event: American
Red Cross, Gulfport Community Emergency Response
Team (CERT), Gulfport Community development,
Gulfport Fire Department, Gulfport Police Department,
Home Depot, Hurricane Window and Doors, Pinellas
County Communications, West Coast Insurance and
Whitco Insurance.
The City of Gulfport's guest speaker for this year is
newly arrived meteorologist from News channel 8,
Brooks Garner. His presentation will consist of historic
hurricanes and the effects on the area. He also will depict
what areas would be underwater if a significant hurricane
were to come and the importance of evacuation. Brooks
will also go into the 2010 hurricane outlook by various
organizations, explaining why the year is expected to be
"higher than normal." Finally, he will go over the basics of
hurricane categories, detailing the changes in the Saffir
Simpson scale for this season. The presentation will last
for approximately 45 minutes with room for questions.
This informative seminar is open to the public. For
more information on this event, please email gbiron@

Memorial Day
BAY PINES-Bay Pines VA will
commemorate Memorial Day with
a ceremony on Monday, May 31 at
10 a.m. at the Bay Pines National
Cemetery. This is the only
National Cemetery in Pinellas
and Hillsborough counties and the
largest observance of Memorial
Day with over 3,000 expected
Steve Jerve, Chief Meteorologist
for WFLA, News Channel 8, will
serve as the ceremony's emcee.
Guest speakers will include
Congressman C.W. Bill Young

Pinellas Evacuation
Maps Change
In response to better data in
some key computer models, more
than 73,000 of Pinellas County's
316,425 parcels are changing
evacuation levels for the 2010
Atlantic hurricane season. Of the
parcels that changed levels, 18,861
were placed in a higher surge
category (e.g., level B to level C)
and 54,332 were moved to a lower
surge category (e.g., level D to level
C). These changes are due to three
important factors:
1. Pinellas County has received
new light detection and ranging
(LIDAR) data giving more accurate
information on ground elevations
above sea level.
2. The National Hurricane Center
is using a more powerful Sea Lake
Overland Surge from Hurricanes
(SLOSH) computer model to better
simulate anticipated surge levels.
3. Unusual and destructive storms
which brought very high
See Maps, page 2

Maps, from front page

storm surges, such as Ike (2008) and
Katrina (2005), were considered in
the model process.
The evacuation zones are also using
a new color scheme this year. The
new colors have been selected to
create a statewide standardized color
scale. The new scale is:
* Level A Red
* Level B Orange
* Level C Yellow
*Level D Green
* Level E Purple

It is important to note that
evacuation maps are not the same
as flood zone maps used to determine
a property's insurance rates. Flood
zones can be viewed at the National
Flood Insurance Program's website,
Residents are encouraged to verify
their evacuation levels before June 1.
The new data can be found at www.
pinellascounty.org/emergency and

St. Pete Beach
Litigation Update
ST. PETE BEACH- The city has
spent this Fiscal Year $200,891.42
as of April 30 on litigation. At its
May 25 meeting the city commission
approved on second and final reading
adding an additional $50,000 to its
extra legal fund.
City Manager Mike Bonfield said the
city plans to look at ballot language
for adding a couple of questions to
the August election at its June 8
meeting. One of the questions that
may go before voters relates to the
litigation. Voters could vote again
on comprehensive plan changes and
development regulations approved
in a June 2008 election. Some of the
lawsuits included concerns on the
ballot language in that election.
City Attorney Mike Davis said he
anticipates an August 19 or 20 court
date for the Pyle ballot case and
possibly the Kadura case, also.
Commissioner Bev Garnett said
she prevailed in an election's case.
There was no probable cause, it was
dismissed, she said.

Commission Reviews
Free Rides
ST. PETE BEACH- The city
commission tabled May 25 an
ordinance regulating all vehicles,
which transport the public whether

or not they charge a fee. Beginning
last year a number of vehicles
started transporting passengers
between hotels and other commercial
destinations like restaurants. These
services did not charge the public set
fees but were compensated through
voluntary tips and advertising on the
The possible changes in the public
conveyances ordinance resulted
from some community members
expressing concerns about these
free of charge services being mostly
unregulated. Previously only paid
taxis or vehicles for hire had to follow
the city's licensing requirements for
public conveyances.
The commission and public discussed
requirements of the vehicles offering
free rides such as including a vehicle
lettering requirement, a photo
badge for drivers, a decal showing
city licensing, and requiring driver
background checks. The city will do
more research on the ordinance and
bring it back to the commission once
they have the information for first

request to reduce insurance risk and
due to an increase in trespassing
and vandalism. The association also

foot fence.

Heights Raised on
Second Reading
ST. PETE BEACH- An ordinance
which can raise the elevation of
some existing structures to allow

Gabber May 27- June 2, 2010

for a garage underneath passed on
second and final reading at the May
25 St. Pete Beach City Commission
The whole purpose of this is to
raise a house, which you can't raise
now because it's non-conforming.
Raising the house helps with Federal
Emergency Management Agency
insurance requirements, said
Commissioner Al Halpern.
The newly adopted ordinance raises
the height somewhere between 18

to 30 inches depending on grade
and flood elevation, Community
Development Director Karl Holley
The motivation behind the
ordinance was discussed again with
stated opinions ranging from the
ordinance being a general ordinance
to the ordinance being for a specific
property. There is ongoing litigation
related to raising a Pass-A-Grille
house and a related permit.

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 S. and
part of the proceeds will be given to
the youth group for their retreat. The
price per ticket is $15 per person and
you can purchase these tickets at the
church. Please call 727-347-9989 for
further information.

Gulfport Market
Open all Summer
GULFPORT- As summer approaches,
many local fresh markets are
preparing to close for the season.
But one local market is and always
has been available to the community
year-round: the Gulfport Tuesday
Fresh Market. Local residents and
local, independent vendors are the
mainstay of the Gulfport Fresh
Market. More than just a tourist
attraction, the Market provides a
valuable service to the community.
The Gulfport Fresh Market takes
place each Tuesday on Beach Blvd.
below 29th Ave. South. Summer
hours are 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Week in and week out, the Market
offers fresh fruits and vegetables
(including locally grown seasonal
produce from farms in our area), as
well as fresh bread, cheese, seafood,
live herbs, plants, fresh flowers,
nuts, honey, pet treats, smoothies,
hand-made soaps, local art, crafts,
jewelry, candles and healing lotions
and oils. Charter a kayak tour at
the Market, consult our astrologer
or try on a henna tattoo. Watch

a pottery wheel demonstration.
Visit with rescued parrots from the
Pinellas Suncoast Parrot Sanctuary
on the first Tuesday of each month.
Nearly 25 vendors offer these items
and experiences to customers who
appreciate the opportunity to support
local merchants, artists, crafters and
non-profit groups. New vendors join
the Market nearly every week.
Gulfport's Industrial Arts Center
(IAC) is now open on Tuesdays from
10 a.m. to 2 p.m. during the Fresh
Market. Located in Gulfport's Art
Village Courtyard, the IAC offers
members of the public young and old
a chance to "blow your own" glass
masterpiece. Choose from vases,
drinking glasses, spirit balls, candy
dishes, ornaments and more. On
Tuesday, discounts of $5 off are
available to seniors and veterans.
Expect other events and activities
during the summer season. Music,
clothing swaps, art shows and more
will be scheduled to make the Market
a new and lively experience each
Free transportation to the Market for
seniors can be arranged on the first
Tuesday of each month. The Gulfport

The Community Garden
is Ready for Planting!

both Gulfport and St. Petersburg;
providing the opportunity to grow
vegetables, annuals and other non-
permanent plants in a plot of their o
The garden is a grassroots endeavor
being coordinated by a group of
local gardening enthusiasts. It is
supported by the City of Gulfport
and the South 49th Street Business
Association. It is intended to provide
a sustainable, educational, and
aesthetically appealing garden in the
Gulfport community.
The garden is located on Preston
Avenue between 51st and 52nd
Street South. Plots are available for
$50 for a season, with two seasons a
year (March-August and September-
February). In honor of Earth Day
and our first growing season, plots
are currently available for $25
for the remainder of this season
(limited time offer). Organizers
hope that eventually the garden
will offer educational courses for
both youth and adults on topics
ranging from organic gardening to
xeriscaping. The focus will be on
sustainable and organic gardening.
The grassroots community group
is currently seeking gardeners with
interest in having their own plot as
well as volunteers to help with the
garden. Plots are currently available
for planting at a discounted rate of
$25 (Sunny plots, approximately 60
square feet, water provided). There
are also several plots available on a
scholarship basis. More information
is available by visiting www.so49.org,
or to sign up and reserve your own plot
please visit BanyanScapes Nursery,
932 49t Street S. in Gulfport.

Justice Advocates
for Senior Care
Senator Charlie Justice (D- St.
Petersburg) has expressed concerns
over the under-utilization of the
State's Nursing Home Diversion
Programs as they could potentially
save the state millions of dollars and
spare many seniors across our state.
He urged Governor Crist to add
senior care to the agenda if a Special
Gabber May 27- June 2, 2010

Session is called.
In a letter to Governor Crist,
Justice states: "Long Term Care
costs are impacting our budget to a
greater degree every year. We have
received information that beginning
in July, there will be thousands
of 'Intermediate' Long Term Care
patients placed into very expensive
institutions because there are no
home and community base slots
available due to budget cuts."
Justice continues "There is the
ability to keep over 14,000 people
out of expensive institutional care
this year and save the State over

$300 million dollars. This cost rises
exponentially every year."

A Plea from the
Industrial Arts Center
Dear Editor: It is down to the wire
and this is my plea for your help.
We opened our doors and have been
offering classes at the IAC close to
two years during the nation's most
economic challenge in decades. This
was accomplished by the dedication
of our staff and volunteers.
99% of our revenue from the
Artwalk events and classes are used
to pay the general operating costs for
the Industrial Arts Center. We have
survived the storm and have many
more plans to expand our classes to
our community.
Just as we were getting a foothold
this year, our landlord has raised
our rent by 33%. For any business,
let alone a non-profit organization,
this is a tremendous financial
challenge. We are a dedicated
group of individuals that have a
common interest in keeping the arts
alive in our community. We have
touched thousands of lives with
our glassblowing demonstrations,
classes and events and ignited
the desire in many of our future
artists to learn and create their own
We do not have the large corporate
backing that many of the bigger art
centers have the privilege of falling
back on financially. The bigger and
more established art centers have

the paychecks they have to pay to
their administrative, marketing
specialists, bookeepers, lawyers, and
administrators. These jobs for our
center are all done by volunteers.
Hundreds upon thousands of hours
have been donated by these busy
professionals to help us keep up with
the daily running of our innovative
teaching facility. As I said, every
penny we earn during the Artwalks
and classes goes into our general
operating costs.
I am asking for your help to keep
our non-profit organization's doors
open. This is your community art
center. It is for you, the children,
the veterans, the seniors, and all
those aspiring artists in all of us.
We are not pretentious and are the
neighbor next door who have the
passion to help our community and
sacrifice our time and energy to keep
the doors open for your community.
Please help us by donating any
amount that you can afford to
continue this opportunity to continue
to create and explore the artist
within you, our future artists.
Any donation is tax-deductible
and can be done online, for
your convienence, at www.
industrialartscenter.org. Just click
the DONATE button.
Or, we will gratefully accept your
donation by phone 727-289-9365 or
you can mail us at: 2902A Beach
Blvd. S., Gulfport, Florida 33707.

Volunteers Needed for
Oil Spill Preparation
There is no imminent threat of
oil from the Deepwater Horizon
spill making landfall in Pinellas
County. The oil is 305 miles from the
Clearwater coastline as of May 21,
according to the State Emergency
Response Team (SERT), a division
of Florida Emergency Management.
However, volunteers are needed
to prepare in case there is a future
landfall. If oil reaches the Pinellas
coastline, it is expected to be highly
weathered in the form of tar balls or
mats. Although weathered material
is not as toxic as fresh oil, it could still
affect birds and other wildlife coming
in contact with the material. If oil or
tar balls wash up on area beaches,
the materials would be removed by
trained contractors, not volunteers.
Local environmental organizations
are seeking volunteers for coastal
watches, preventative beach cleanup
and bird monitoring. Also, local
wildlife rehabilitation agencies are
requesting trained assistance and
donations. Volunteers are needed as
SCoastline watchers: To report oil
on the shoreline, call 866-448-5816,
or dial #DEP from a cell phone. To
report oiled wildlife, call 866-557-
*Pre-oil landfall beach cleanup:
Sign up online with Keep Pinellas
Beautiful at www.pinvol.org for a
Special Beach Cleanup. Volunteers
who register will be contacted for a
beach cleanup event, if necessary,
prior to oil making landfall. For
information, call 727-533-0402.
*Local bird survey: Assist Audubon
with counting local bird populations
by using the eBird checklist at www.
ebird.org or call the Clearwater
Audubon Society at 727-431-2856.
Beach and wildlife monitoring:
Volunteers can contact Tampa Bay
Watch at www.tampabaywatch.org
or call (727-867-8166.
Office work or seabird
rehabilitation: Volunteers are needed
at the Suncoast Seabird Sanctuary
for tasks such as feeding birds,
which will free up trained staff for
emergency work. Also, veterinarians
and wildlife paraprofessionals are
needed for an Emergency Call List.
Visit www.seabirdsanctuary.com, or
call 727-391-2473.
Gabber May 27- June 2, 2010

Aquarium work: Volunteers are
needed to assist the Clearwater
Marine Aquarium with daily
duties. Training classes and long-
term weekly shifts are required.
Volunteers will not necessarily treat
oiled wildlife directly, as marine
animal needs will be determined by
federal wildlife officials and facility
staff. Visit www.seewinter.com or
call 727-441-1790, ext. 230.
Suncoast Seabird Sanctuary is
requesting donations of items such
as towels to treat oiled birds. Visit
www.seabirdsanctuary.com, or call
727-391-2473 for a current list of
needed supplies.
* Clearwater Marine Aquarium has
set up an Oil Spill Emergency Fund.
Donations can be made by calling the
aquarium at 727-441-1790 or visiting
In terms of local preparations,
the U.S. Coast Guard Sector St.
Petersburg is monitoring the
situation and has specific plans in
place for deflecting oil. The plan
identifies environmentally sensitive
areas in Pinellas County (such as

mangroves, estuaries, bird rookeries
and marshes) with specific strategies
for protecting each area. Floating
booms would be deployed to protect
passes and inlets. However, booms
are not efficient for beach areas
because they are difficult to secure in
open water areas due to wave action.

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
call 727-522-6566 or go the website

SPCA Pet of the Week
Hello, my name is Zazu. I am originally from an SPCA
shelter in California, but prefer it here in Florida. I am
interested in adopting a human or two. As for myself,
I'm a Sagittarius, I love humans and kitties of all sizes.
I've been described as gentle, easy-going and very
loving. I am quite keen on being groomed and I don't
even mind my nails being clipped. My hobbies include
bird watching and chasing fuzzy toys. Why don't you
come and get acquainted with me at SPCA Tampa Bay, 9099 130 Avenue N. in
Largo or call 727-586-3591.

Foster or Adopt a Greyhound
Meet Eagle, a beautiful black male greyhound at our
kennel. He is fun loving, outgoing, and playful. Yet he
settles easily, and is very affectionate. He looks forward
to his one-on-one people time. Eagle also gets along very
well with the other greys here in our kennel. We think
will make a wonderful companion pet, including for a first-
time greyhound adopter but no cat households please. If '
you would like to foster or adopt Eagle or any of our many other greyhounds,
please contact Greyhound Pets of America on 727595-7852, our website:
greyhoundpets.com or see us at the Tyrone PetSmart on most Sundays from
noon to 2 p.m.

Friends of Strays
Sailor is a 33 pound female Bassett mix. She is 4 years
old and very playful. She loves people but does not care
for cats. Sailor has a sleek black coat with a splash of
white on her chest. Her ears are super sized and waiting
to here the words "I want to adopt Sailor!" Visit Sailor
at Friends of Strays Adoption Center at 2911 47 Avenue

ItStoroscoDe Guide

GEMINI (May 21-June 21).
Remember a past success. At the
beginning of the process, it seemed
the journey would take forever. But
all of a sudden, you found yourself
halfway there. And then before you
knew it, you were crossing the finish
line -- no problem. Apply the faith
and lessons of that past experience
to your present one.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). You'll
tell stories, start conversations and
initiate agreements. Successful
communication hinges on your
ability to read the response of your
listeners. You will gather clues as
to people's interests and opinions.
You'll also realize when you're
barking up the wrong tree and will
make adjustments accordingly.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Those
who care to cultivate the talent of
listening are few and far between.
With the ever-increasing number
of distractions around, this waning
talent is becoming quite rare. You
already have what it takes to be
highly observant and intuitive.
Practice listening. Become masterful
at it. Opportunity springs from this
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Here's
one reason why first impressions are
so important. People determine how
interested they are in one another at
this meeting. And with most people,
the interest rate will drop over time.
So you want to make sure to set yours
high to begin with. This week you'll
spend time polishing your image.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You have
compassion for those who are going
through strange times. Then again,
there are those who are always going
through strange times. They'll try
to ensnarl you in their world. That's
why you must avoid them. It's simply
too much drama. If you wanted
theater, you would have bought a
ticket. Steer clear.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You
have an instinct for managing people
this week. You'll get an example
of how not to do it. The rules and
warnings of higher-ups will sound
like a car alarm, loud and annoying
but in a rhythm and tone so common
that no one takes much notice. It
all gives you an idea. Develop your
strategy. Put it on paper.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21).
Humor is power. If you can make
someone laugh, you have won this
person over to your side, if only in
some small way. You'll accomplish
this feat without jokes or gimmicks.
You simply see life in a different
way, and your astute observations
will amuse, especially if you express
them in brief terms.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19).
Someone will say (perhaps only
with their facial expression) that
your idea about what your future
holds is far-fetched. But it just so
happens that this far-fetched idea of
yours is perhaps the most sound and
reasonable thing that could happen.
Furthermore, if you believe in it and
act on it, it will happen.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18).
You've been on other people's teams
for a while, so it will be a fun turn for
you this week when you discover that
there are many people on your team,
too. All you have to do is say the word
and friends come to your assistance.
You'll get all the information and
support you need, and it will feel
wonderful to you.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20).
Animals will enchant you. They
are not thinking about how they
come across. They are not worried
about whether they are dressed
appropriately, and they are not
concerned about whether they make
enough money or have the right
friends. Natural intelligence is awe-
inspiring. Observing it gets you in
touch with your essence.


the Gabr. vr husa ic 98

ARIES (March 21-April 19). One of
the unique things about you is that
you can never rest until you succeed.
If you experience a momentary
setback, you relentlessly imagine
ways around, through or over the
problem. This is a habit for success
and is likely to win you a significant
promotion by week's end. Cancer ties
are lucky -- work them.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You
have some charming friends, but this
week you'll be the most charming of
them all. Your gift for making people
feel comfortable is unequaled. And
while it may not be a contest, there
definitely is a prize. You will find
an opportunity to exercise this gift
with a new acquaintance and net an
unexpected reward.
This Week's Birthdays: Stay
true to your word, and your stellar
reputation will net you the sweetest
things in life. You walk into
unfamiliar territory and quickly
find your way. In no time you'll find
you've mastered a system. You'll
make lucrative deals in June. A
tender exchange in July leads to a
major commitment in August. The
people around you need what only
you can provide. In October, you'll
see a different part of the world. In
December, your thoughtfulness will
bring harmony to relationships.

Gulfport Chamber Celebrates 26 Years
By Leigh Clifton

S... I_

Gulfport's Chamber of Commerce celebrated 26 years of service to the community last week with a birthday bash
reception at Catherine Hickman Theatre. The guests included past and present Chamber members as well as local Gulfport
merchants, business owners and the general public. Over 50 people enjoyed the informal get- together; the Chamber
had decorated the theatre's walls with past copies of the both Chamber's and the Gabber's publications, as well posters
including old photos of past events and people. It was a great look back at what the Chamber has accomplished over the
years in Gulfport. Light refreshments were served as people swapped stories and memories. Happy Birthday Gulfport
Chamber of Commerce!

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.

So methlat oh my mind
a By Bill Northrop B_Northrop@theGabber.com

Better stand up now and be
heard. No one else is going
to do it for you. The U.S., by
declaration of the President, Barack
Obama, has declared that we are a
nation without borders. That means
anyone can come in and you are a
racist for denying that access. Silence
means approval.
Obama made that claim in a
speech, hand-in-hand with Mexican
president, Felipe Calderon as both
talked about the millions of illegal
immigrants pouring over our borders
yearly. Calderon, whose own country
has some of the most stringent and
punitive immigration laws in the
world, castigated the United States,
and specifically the state of Arizona,
for its policies. He did this with
the concurrent approval of world
president Obama. Both of them spoke
of Americans as racist for wanting to
close our own borders. It was another

America bashing by Obama in a
string of other bashings.
Each president was self serving:
Calderon who welcomes the outflow of
unemployed people from his country
and welcomes the inflow of billions of
dollars a year, and Obama who sees
Hispanic votes in the uncontrolled
flow of people into this country.
This latter was proven when top
immigration officials announced that
they won't handle any immigration
cases brought to them by Arizona
officials. So much for enforcing the
law. The administration has not
issued a rebuke of this statement and
it is assumed that it concurs with the
Estimates are that we have at least
10 million illegal immigrants (not all
Mexican) in this country, and more
coming each day. We have millions
more who are not illegal. I have yet
to meet a person who opposes legal

immigration whatever the race or
nationality. The illegals are, by all
reports, putting severe strains on
the medical, social, and scholastic
resources of our southern border
states. And, they are illegal. Does
that even matter anymore?
The obvious answer is "No". It's
the votes that count and to imply
that illegal immigration should be
stopped is racist by definition. That
there needs to be a debate about the
whole issue and particularly about
what to do with those already here,
goes without saying. How, though,
can there be a debate when one side
already has been declared racist?
Well, if it is the votes that count,
you better makes yours count. Not
by voting against anyone of Hispanic
descent, but by voting against those
who would not enforce the law and
who support the immigration policies
of the Obama administration. It is a
Florida issue. Florida has as much
at stake as the southwestern states
because we're a destination state for
legal and illegal immigrants.

Gulfport Centennial Countdown Continues!

0 Week Co ntdon te 1 ea
100 Week Countdown to 100 Years!

This sailor was better known for another profession. But he
was always ready to help out the town's kids with their sailing
projects. Who was he and what was the odd name of his boat?
Answer next week.

In just 20 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 commercial building at 2832 Beach
Boulevard was built in 1926, and the north
section of it was a grocery store and meat
market almost from the very beginning,
but it wasn't until 1945 that Casey and
Frederica Ingram took it over. They and
their son maintained a business there for
the next twenty years.

Traditional Hotel District Workshop
By Melissa Lattman
ST. PETE BEACH- The commission and residents reviewed
an ordinance on the Traditional Hotel District in Pass-
A-Grille at the May 20 city commission workshop. The
commission planned to decide at its May 25 meeting any
needed modifications to the ordinance and to give related
direction to the planning and historic boards.
During the two-hour session the commission and about
20 people in attendance discussed ways to modify the
existing ordinance which provides "for the redevelopment
of properties in areas traditionally utilized for small
hotels and motels in a manner consistent with the present
character of the surrounding area."
The workshop explored which properties are covered. With
answers varying because of how the ordinance is currently
written from nine specific small hotel and motel properties
to any licensed and operated in the geographic area. The
same license is used for rental apartments and tourist
lodging, City Manager Mike Bonfield said.
"What properties are concerned?" asked resident Jim Vik
"What about apartments- could they build a hotel?... (We)
need to define parameters--(provide) a definition of who
could build and who could not...there is a fabric of Pass-A-
Grille that people like."
"I sat on the historic board when this began...to me it
should be the nine properties," said Jay Anderson "Then we
talk about mass, scale and size.. Pass-A-Grille is a historic
district. You need to guide it, nurture it and most of all you
need to guard it."
People talked about specific recommendations such as
building heights not to exceed two floors over parking,

following architectural guidelines similar and compatible
with the area and having no ancillary uses like rooftop
party decks or restaurants.
Resident Chris Bell said, "Current hotels should be allowed
to improve but not taller than houses...I also feel strongly
there should be no ancillary uses allowed."

Traditional Hotel District Next Steps
ST. PETE BEACH- The city commission asked the planning
andhistoricpreservationboards to providerecommendations
for the traditional hotel district ordinance by Aug. 26.
Based on a May 20 workshop session with the public, areas
the boards will look at include the purpose and intent of the
ordinance, including which properties are covered under
the ordinance.
The boards will look at uses of the properties such as
ancillary use, operational restrictions due to the proximity
to residential properties and expansion or connection to
properties over alleys or abutting lots.
The board will look at design requirements such as height,
setbacks, and architectural standards/design guidelines.
"Lets look at the big picture, what's going to work in Pass-
A-Grille as a whole," Commissioner Bev Garnett said.
Coconut Inn Owner Joe Caruso said he felt like he entered
a time machine and had gone back six years. From the
beginning the ordinance was to save the properties that
were there- the hotels on the ground. They designed a plan
to keep it patchwork, he said.
"My preferences are to make sure it gets looked at from all
angles... (I am) trying to open it up so there aren't constraints
what the board looks at," said Vice Mayor Parent "What's
good for the city? ... How can we make it work?'

Very simply put, a Sea Scout SHIP
is a co-ed Venture Scout organiza-
tion for teens that builds self confi-
dent young leaders who understand
the importance of team work on the

how to fix them, racing them, sailing
to outings and participating in diffi-
cult water related games.

By Robert J. Myers, Esquire
What is Probate?
Probate is a Court-supervised
process which is normally required
to wind up the personal and business
affairs of someone who passes on.
Probate involves the identification of
and gathering of a deceased person's
assets, the payment of taxes, creditor
claims and expenses and, finally, the
distribution of the deceased's assets
to beneficiaries.
Probate documents are generally
filed in the county where the
deceased person lived. A filing fee
is required to be paid to the Clerk of
the Circuit Court to start the probate
administration process. After a
probate proceeding is initiated, a
Circuit Court Judge is assigned to
oversee the process. A Judge will,
upon her/his approval, issue letters
of administration which appoints
a personal representative of the
deceased's estate. The Judge also
resolves questions raised during the

probate administration by reviewing
all filed documents and holding Court
hearings as necessary.
Who has Preference to Serve
as Personal Representative?
If a deceased person had a valid
last will and testament, the person
who is designated in the will to
serve as personal representative
will have preference to be appointed
by the Court to serve. In the event
the deceased did not have a valid
last will and testament, a surviving
spouse will generally serve. In the
alternative, a majority of the heirs
may select someone to serve as
personal representative for approval
by the Court. In our next article,
we will together explore what
the responsibilities of a personal
representative are in the probate

Big Green Machine

Nl Nil k ,
." .w--- -.. ....

It rakes. It cleans. It's fast and green. The city has a new beach rake system
towed by a tractor that grooms the city's beaches two to three times faster than
the old cleaner.
Dan Smith, of the city's Public Works Department, cleaned the stretch of
beach between 21st Avenue and the concession stand in Pass-a-Grille on a
recent morning. A light early morning rain made the texture of the powdery
sand a bit like gumbo. The rake has tines, which can be adjusted depending on
the texture of the sand, Smith said.
The machine goes out every day raking various parts of the city's beaches.
It picks up big stuff and stuff as small as glass or a cigarette butt. It cleans
debris. Keeping the sand fluffed- makes it fresher. It smoothes it out keeping
it rut free. The old unit from 1999 was big, slow and very labor intensive, said
Operations Manager Phil Christman.

St. Pete Beach Splash & Dash
By Melissa Lattman





Seven-year-old Blake Smith got a buzz hair cut so he would move faster in
the water at the city's first Splash & Dash Biathlon on May 16. Children
ages 5-12 grouped by age ran on the grassy park fields and swam laps in the
Community Center pool.
"I am going to swim faster. I am going to zoom," Blake said of the effects of
his haircut.
The athletes enjoyed the Splash & Dash, which showcased two of the city's
newer venues. The park and pool were built in 2007. The recreation depart-
ment always wanted to host an event combining the pool and a run in the
park, said Recreation Department Program Director Mandy Edmunds.
"It was amazing. I got real tired at the beginning and it feels so much better
when you jump into the pool," said Cameron Wright, 10.
For some young athletes the morning was part of their training goals.
Avron Harvey, 9, said it was his first biathlon and he wants to do a triathlon
some day. He's on a swim team already and hopes to join the school track
A pool party followed the biathlon. The recreation department planned the
morning to provide opportunities "to get kids out there and be active," Sha-
ron Smith of the Recreation Department said.

How to Maximize
Your Social Security
I have been getting more and more
e-mails from readers in their late 50s
and early 60s who are doing some
retirement planning and looking for
ways to get the best return on their
Social Security "investment." That's
why I decided to produce a fact sheet
that I call "Five Ways To Maximize
Your Social Security Benefits." The
fact sheet is too long to reproduce in
this column. So, I am going to just
briefly summarize its contents and
then invite readers who want more
information to send me an e-mail
asking for a free electronic copy of the
fact sheet. Just e-mail that request to
Here is an overview of the five
strategies you might be able to use
to receive the best deal possible from
Social Security.
-- Take reducedbenefits at 62. Repay
those benefits at 66 and start all over
at a full rate.
This little used scheme -- more
formally known within the Social
Security Administration as the
"restart plan" -- would only work if
you are retired before age 66 and if
your Social Security benefits are not
part of your retirement cash flow. You
file for reduced retirement benefits
from Social Security at age 62 (or
any age before 66). But as you get
the checks each month, you set aside
all the proceeds in the investment
plan of your choice. Then at age 66,
you withdraw your original Social
Security claim. You will be required
to pay back all the benefits you
have received, but you get to keep
whatever interest was earned. Then
you file a new claim with an age 66
start state (i.e., your full retirement
age rate) and receive those benefits
for the rest of your life.
-- While you are still working, take
reduced benefits at 62 and get an
adjusted rate at 66.
This is the "ARF" plan that I have
written about several times in recent
columns. ARF stands for adjustment

to the reduction factor. Under this
plan, you would take early retirement
benefits at areducedrate, even though
you are still working, assuming your
earnings are at a level that permits
you to receive at least some of your
Social Security benefits between
age 62 and 66. At age 66, the ARF
provision automatically adjusts your
original early retirement penalty,
so that your ongoing rate reflects a
reduction only for those months you
actually received a Social Security
check. The advantage to this plan is
that you receive thousands of dollars
in Social Security benefits before age
66, even though you are still working.
You wind up with a Social Security
benefit that isn't much less than your
full retirement rate.
-- Start your Social Security in
January of your age 66 year and get
unexpected benefits.
If you were planning to wait until
age 66 to apply for Social Security,
it is frequently to your advantage to
apply for and start those benefits in
January of the year you reach age
66. Explaining the advantages to this
provision requires a lot of complicated
math that I just don't have room for
in this column, although the fact
sheet gives a good example. Even
without the messy math, the message
is simple: Always check into filing
for Social Security in January, even
though you don't turn 66 until later
in the year.
-- Claim benefits from your spouse
at 66 and get a higher retirement
rate at 70.
This plan would work for a married
couple when both are eligible for their
own Social Security benefits. It allows
one member of the couple to initially
claim benefits on a spouse's Social
Security record and then switch to
much higher benefits on his or her
own record at age 70. Those higher
benefits would include an extra
monthly bonus of up to 32 percent in
"delayed retirement credits." Please
note that under the rules of this
plan, which SSA calls the "restricted
application policy," both members of
the couple must be age 66 or older.

-- Let your nonworking spouse get
some of your Social Security while
you keep working.
This plan works for someone who is
over age 66, still working and wants
to delay his or her Social Security
until age 70 to take advantage of
the delayed retirement credits. But
he or she has a spouse who is not
working and is eligible for little or
no Social Security on his or her own
Social Security record. The higher
earning spouse would file for Social
Security at age 66, but then suspend
those benefits until age 70 in order
to get the delayed retirement bonus.
However, the nonworking spouse
would be able to receive dependent's
benefits, even during the suspension
This column gave you only a broad
overview of some very complicated
provisions of Social Securitylaw. Ifone
or more of them piqued your interest,
send me an e-mail requesting the full
fact sheet, "Five Ways To Maximize
Your Social Security." But even after
you have read the fact sheet, you
should realize that your own personal
factors -- your retirement plans, your
earnings, your other income, your
marital status, your health, etc. --
present a unique set of circumstances
that play a major role in determining
if one or more of these plans can work
for you. So, you should always discuss
your options with a Social Security
representative. You can make an
appointment to do so by calling SSA
at 1-800-772-1213 or going to their
website at www.socialsecurity.gov.
