Governor Crist Gives
Beaches All Clear

ST. PETE BEACH Governor Charlie Crist visited St.
Pete Beach on Monday, took a beach walk and
answered questions. The walk on the city's pristine
beaches followed a morning roundtable at the
Tradewinds Island Resorts where area business
and government leaders shared concerns and
gave ideas on marketing that the beaches are
open for business. Suggestions included the need
to target marketing where area visitors come from
- the midwest and northeast .Another idea was
to encourage airlines to waive cancellation fees
as they do during inclement weather. Pursuing
alternate green energy sources and banning drilling
off of Florida came up as well.

St. Pete Beach August
Election Revisits Old Plan
ST. PETE BEACH- The St. Pete Beach city
commission at its June 8 meeting approved a
resolution that puts the comprehensive plan with
changes back before voters at the August 24, 2010
primary election.
One claim in court is an ordinance on the
comprehensive plan adopted August 26, 2008 by
the city commission is slightly different from an
ordinance approved by voters in the June 3, 2008
election. The August 2008 ordinance came after
the ordinance approved by voters in June 2008
received state mandated review.
During that review process the Department of
Community Affairs found one paragraph was not
consistent with particular sections of law and
agency rule and there was a vague and unnecessary
footnote. The paragraph dealt with affordable
housing density. The August 2008 changes made
the comprehensive plan in compliance with state
See Election, page 6

Reclaimed Water Rates Rise
ST. PETE BEACH- The commission approved
on first reading increases to the reclaimed water
rates. If passed on second reading everyone in
the city will pay an availability fee for reclaimed
The proposed rate increase follows a study
presented to the commission April 13 showing a
rate adjustment was needed for the city to recoup
operating costs. Currently revenues are about $
568,594 with costs projected for 2011 at $621,034.
The last rate increase was ten years ago.

be tire June 6-12, 2010
S Tires degrade over time even when not being used. The rubber
Sr becomes less elastic, the steel belts inside the tire corrode and
fl y y o u r the rubber mixture of which the tread is formed hardens. Heat
P y caused by hot climates and frequent high loading conditions can
\accelerate the aging process. It is generally recommended that
tires in hot climate areas be replaced at least every five years
regardless of tread remaining. Tires are only safe for four to five
years in the Florida climate.

the American Legion Post 125, will
perform a very special Flag Day
ceremony as they retire old American
flags by proper ceremonial burn. This
event is held Monday, June 14 at

with a Child!
Gulf Coast Community Care needs
volunteers age 30 and older for its
mentoring program. Many of the
children are in foster care or live with
a single parent who is going to school
and working. Volunteers give the gift
of time to one child and are provided
social activities and receive support
by agency staff.
No experience is necessary. There
are no costs. Volunteers spend a few
hours a month in simple activities
such as reading, fishing, baking,
teaching a craft or visiting a park
with a child. There are children
throughout Pinellas County waiting
for mentors!

Quasi-Judicial Updates
ST. PETE BEACH- Quasi-judicial
hearings are very similar to court
proceeding and following the
procedures is important especially if
the board's decision is appealed, city
officials said. The city commission
adopted a resolution to better
manage the hearing process. People
will not be required to be sworn in
to speak.
The city attorney provided the
commission with details on the legal
requirement explaining what makes
someone a "substantially affected"
person. By being a substantially
affectedparty a personhas additional
rights such as cross-examination
and making a closing statement,
City Attorney Mike Davis said.

Free Ride Regulations
Pass First Reading
ST. PETE BEACH- The city
commission passed June 8 on first
reading an ordinance regulating
all vehicles, which transport the
public whether or not they charge
a fee. The proposed changes in the
public conveyances ordinance came
after some community members
expressed concerns about 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.

Last week, the Gabber
inadvertently stated that Gulfport
Councilmember David Hastings
was the first on the current council
to hold Town Hall meetings when,
in fact, Councilmember Sam
Henderson began holding Town
Hall meetings while campaigning
for office (February 2009).
Councilmember Henderson still
holds these meetings every three
months at the Neighborhood
Center on 49th Street. The next
meeting will take place on June 14
on 6 p.m.; the Gabber newspaper
apologizes to Councilmember
Henderson as well as to our
readers for any confusion caused
by our mistake.

law and rules. For the upcoming
election at a resident's suggestion
the city added language that the
comprehensive plan is in state
compliance on the ballot.
"My concern is how do we convey
what we are doing to the voters,"
said Commissioner Al Halpern.
"Truthfully I don't think fact sheets
are going to be enough to take care of
(explaining) it."
In the 75 words allowed on the ballot
it's difficult to explain the 140 page
comprehensive plan, Vice Mayor Jim
Parent said.

The litigation centers around
whether the ballot language conveys
the chief purpose to the voters
Attorney Suzanne Van Wyk said. "I
think it's a good faith step for the
Residents spoke in favor and in
opposition of the resolution.
"I think the voters spoke very loudly
and it was an informed decision, "
said Michael Castleman. "I am proud
the comprehensive plan passed.
What is in the collective best interest
of this community?"
Dr. Bill Pyle voiced his objections
to the ballot wording. He said there
are zoning changes and substantial

increases to heights. Nothing in the
ballot language alerts the voter that
height is being changed. There are
major changes in zoning. Why not
wait for the ballot case in August?
Pyle asked.
Residents discussed the timing of
the ballot question with court dates
on at least one ballot language case
just before the election
Harry Metz read a letter from
Attorney Kenneth Weiss who
represents Pyle, Bruce Kadoura
and Richard McCormick in lawsuits
over development regulations, which
in part reads."The common sense
approach would be to wait until
November after the Court has made
final decisions on all counts in both
the Pyle and Kadoura cases. My
clients believe that obvious reason
that the City and SOLV have decided
to hold the August election is to avoid
Judge Demers' decision on the ballot
summaries before the second election
is held. If the City moves forward with
its plans to hold the August election,
my clients intend to file a request for
injunctive relief from Judge Demers
to require the City to wait until after
the Court's August ruling and to hold
the election in November."
Paul Pfister said "I think the plan
here is to push this to November.
There will be confusion with
amendment 4. A little mass confusion
so this does not fly."

Future Land Use Vote
ST. PETE BEACH- The city com-
mission approved on first reading
some changes to the comprehensive
plan, which will need to also be
voted on by residents. The changes
include map updates, adding areas
allowing limited transient lodging
and clarifying language on building
heights, permitted uses, and density.
Temporary lodging would be added
as a permitted use in the Activity
Center district and the Bayou
Residential district. A total of 325
additional units would be available
as a conditional use request on a
first come, first serve basis within
four areas. The Department of
Community Affairs will still need to
review the plan.
Another ordinance passed on
first reading made more updates
to the comprehensive plan such as
clarifying language, deleting internal
page numbers, clarifying density
requirements and clarifying the use
of definitions.

ST. PETE BEACH- State law requires
the city to add the public school's
five-year capital improvement plan
to the city's comprehensive plan.
The city commission passed on first
reading this addition, which covers
the Pinellas County school district

The commission was given two rate
increase options. Option 1 would
increase the flat residential monthly

rate from $11.50 to $14.38 on Oct. 1,
2010. There would be an additional
adjustment to $16.39 monthly on
October 1, 2011.
In Option 2 which the commission
selected, therewouldbe an availability
fee of $7.70 to all reclaimed water
customers whether or not the
customer is connected to reclaimed
water. The monthly residential flat
rate would go up to $12.88 in 2010
and $13.91 in 2011 (rates include
the availability fee). Currently there

the oil spill is already here on our
beaches. As to liability, I don't think
that BP should be held accountable
for the loss of life or charged in the
deaths of the workers because the
people who worked on those rigs
were aware of the potential danger;
they assume the risk, because it's
their job. They know the risk or at
least they should. But that's no
excuse for BP not to take care of the
families of the dead any way they
can. Those families are an extension
of BP's family. They should be taken
care of."

Mark Patsos, Pinellas Point:
"I'm not sure... if there was proof
of criminal negligence in the events
leading up to the oil spill, then yes.
But that needs to be made clear
that there is significant evidence
of criminal wrongdoing. You hear
figures about how little BP is paying
the people affected by the spill, and
you're not sure what's really been
paid out to these poor people. As for
those men that lost their lives, if they
can prove that it was BP's fault, then
of course they should be charged
with those deaths. But I haven't been
watching it all that closely lately so
I'm not really sure what the latest
info is about BP's liability."

Micki Robinson, Pinellas Point: "BP
should be held accountable, at least for
the financial cost. It seems like they are
criminally negligent and yes, if that's so,
then they should be charged, but it needs
to be explored. They say they're doing
the best they can, but it seems now that
they're more concerned about getting it
out as fast as possible rather than for
the safety of the Gulf region and the rest
of their workers. Safety concerns seem
to be pushed to the back of the thought

KurtWolhuter, St. Pete: "Definitely,
I think they should be charged.....it's
affecting the future way of life for
people who have generations of life on
the sea... their way of life is gone, it
can never come back. It's like a chop
block; the spill has totally cut off their
livelihood. It's also caused a chain
reaction with the whole economy;
the fishing is fouled which affects the
restaurants where the fish would be
served, which makes people not go
to the restaurants, which affects the
waiters who depend on customers.
The whole boating tourism industry
here in Florida has come to a
standstill. It's like a chain reaction.
The charter boats are not going out
because people think the oil is already
here on our beaches, which puts boat
captains and the people who work
on the boats with them out of work.
People aren't boating as much, so
they don't need work on their boats....
And that's MY business because I
restore and renovate custom wood
work for boat interiors. My business
has dropped off dramatically. This
spill will reach much farther into
our area than people realize; it starts
from the ocean and goes inland from
there. Everything in between will be
affected and our local businesses will
be severely impacted, even if there is
no oil on our shoreline. It will impact
every part of Florida."

Thanks for Your Support
Dear Editor: American Legion
Auxiliary Unit 305 would like
to extend a thank you to all our
neighbors and friends of St. Pete
Beach for supporting the Veteran
Poppy program. Thanks to everyone
that came forward Saturday at
Walgreens and Publix to show
generosity and support for our
veterans, who are grateful for all
the help they receive. Our Auxiliary
volunteers claim they are the ones
that truly benefited the most, not only
were they shown generosity for our
veterans, but witnessed lots of praise
for our enlisted men and women.
A little note to give you some
insight to the preparation of the
Poppy's, which are hand made by our
veterans here at Bay Pines Hospital
and VA hospitals around the US, we
had many hands to help open and
prepare the pretty red flowers. We
had visitors from Chicago; Jennifer,
Kristi, and Stephanie along with their
parents Laverne and Frank helped
Pat Jedrzejak and Diana McLoughlin

prepare the Poppy's for distribution.
They were here enjoying the sun and
saw that we needed help to open a
thousand Poppies so they brought
pizzas and their willing hands for a
great evening!
Diana McLoughlin

A Special Thank You
Dear Editor: The Troop Support
Alliance and Mellow Melodies would
like to try and thank the many people
who came together and helped to
make Saturday's BackYard Jam for
Troop Support a successful event. It
was a day to say thank you for our
freedoms, come together to support
the Special Operations Warrior
Foundation, allow many troop
support minded people to connect
and thank our many first responders
for doing the hard job they do.
Thanks to Mayor Mike Yakes and
the City of Gulfport for their support
and participation, to the wonderful

well with the other greys here in our kennel. We think he
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 at 727-595-7852,

ItStoroscoDe Guide

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Staying
on task won't always ensure that a
job will get done. And actually, you're
likely to discover that some thingsjust
aren't worth doing in the first place.
This week brings many a lengthy,
loopy detour both in your actions and
in your conversations. Rambling on
can be beautiful. Getting to the point
is overrated.
CANCER (June 22-July 22).
Someone is learning from you and
may even borrow a few of your
mannerisms, matters of speech and
opinions, to boot. It's enough work
to cultivate your own tastes and
attitudes. And now you feel slightly
responsible for someone else's, too.
Well, at least you're contributing to
the refinement of the planet.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Contrary
to the edict of the television
commercials, a bubble bath isn't
going to solve your problems. In fact,
pampering and lollygagging will only
delay the resolution. So don't go soft
on the situation now. Whatever the
mess may be, you are more likely to
walk it out or talk it out than you are
to wash it out.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22).
Sometimes, when people say "we
miss you," what they really mean is
that they miss having your business
or, more specifically, your money.
This week you'll find out that you
are genuinely missed for your
energy, attitude, friendliness and
contribution to the lives of others.
And because of this, you may return
for a visit.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You'll
work on increasing your confidence.
It's easy enough for others to say
"believe in yourself," but how is this
actually accomplished? And how do
you know when it's done? Take every
step you can to be self-sufficient
physically and emotionally. When
you don't feel you need another
person for your survival, it's done.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Your
pace will quicken this week as you
realize the opportunity ahead of you
is a sliding door that only stays open
long enough for one or two people
to walk through. Grab a partner
and head on in. The news you get
Thursday will inspire travel. You'll
be elated by visits with those you
haven't seen in a while.
21). When you're deciding what to
do next, the brainstorming stage
is an important one. Don't skip it.
Otherwise, you'll end up doing what
you have always done, and that won't
lead you to new places. A blank sheet
of paper may be your best friend
this week and will certainly be the
gateway to an adventure.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19).
A number of interesting characters
will pass through your week, and
you'll hone your social skills as you
go from one communication to the
next. There's a feeling that you're
headed somewhere, that all the
relationships are culminating into
something important, but it's too
soon to say what.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You
have stellar ideas, and you follow
through. But sometimes you get so
driven toward a goal that you lose
the habits that keep you feeling
strong and healthy. Stable patterns
are deeply important to keeping
you on track. Make a list of all that
needs to be done on a daily basis to
maintain the optimum you.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Work
that encourages you to exercise
your verbal talents will be favored.
You have the gift of gab, persuasion
and public speaking. You may not
feel that you have anything special
to tell the world, but that is not
entirely true. While your message is
not exactly news, coming from you it
has a whole new meaning.


the Gabr. vr husa ic 98

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You'll
work with those who like to talk things
through, weigh the consequences
and speculate about the end result of
every decision. In contrast, you just
do what feels right. It will benefit you
to listen to the logic others present --
it's a good education. However, you'll
still do what feels right, regardless of
the rest.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20).
This week loosens up your working
process. Stream of consciousness
writing, speaking or drawing will get
you into a very creative mode. What
comes to you will be brilliant -- but
maybe not the first thing, or the first
three things for that matter. As you
muddle on though, you'll connect
with true inspiration.
This Week's Birthdays: You're so
attractive and fun that you may just
get more attention than you know
what to do with this year. This month
boosts you toward financial and
professional goals. Follow through
with the leads you'll be given and the
promises that you make to others.
After you prove yourself trustworthy,
a new door opens. Singles explore
exciting andromantic new friendships
through September. Families find
improved ways of communicating.
Senior members of the group will be
honored in November.

Teaching Opportunities
and Artists' Registry
GULFPORT- "The Gathering"
is a new non-profit organization
in Gulfport formed to establish a
gallery and artist's studio space in
Gulfport's Waterfront District. To
strengthen its reach and mission,
The Gathering has recently joined
with two other existing non-profits:
The City of Imagination and the
Gulfport Arts Center. The City of
Imagination, in existence for several
years, focuses on partnering with
artists and arts groups in a wide
range of projects. The Gulfport Arts
Center, established almost one year
ago, focuses on education, offering
classes and workshops in which
artists can share their craft with
community members. Classes at the
Gulfport Arts Center are now being
formed and will begin this summer.

90, the matri-
arch of the well
known R.W.
s 6Caldwell fam-
ily, died May
28th in Gulfport at the home of her
daughter, April Caldwell Hornsleth.
Her death marks the end of an era
in Gulfport and follows by less than
a year the passing of her husband of
almost 64 years, R.W. 'Bob' Caldwell,
Jr., who died July 4, 2009. Less than
three months before Bob's death,
the City of Gulfport had honored
the over 80+ years of contributions
by the Caldwell family to Gulfport
by naming the park at 64th and
Gulfport Boulevard, R.W. Caldwell
Park. Born Adele Dufour Allport
on December 30, 1919 in Asheville,
North Carolina, Mrs. Caldwell was
the youngest of four sisters and grad-
uated from Biltmore College. She
installed radios in military aircraft
during World War II in Tennessee,
and while on a trip to California in
1945, she met and soon after married
Bob Caldwell who was working as an
aeronautical engineer building the
heavy bomber B-24 Liberator in San
Diego. The Caldwells moved back to
Bob's hometown of Gulfport on July 4,
1951 with their three young children
in tow. Bob started working with his
father by opening up the building di-
vision of R.W. Caldwell, Inc., a real
estate and insurance business start-
ed originally by the elder Caldwell

in 1937. Besides raising the children,
Adele designed many of Bob's custom
homes. Adele enjoyed fishing, sail-
ing, family trips and helping others.
She relished taking summer trips
with her husband and children in
a station wagon to national parks
around America, camping out along
the way, and then repeating many
of those trips a generation later with
her grandchildren. Just last month,
the Boca Beacon Tarpon Times, in
Boca Grande, published a large cov-
er photo, taken in the late 1950s, of
Adele sitting demurely on the stern
of a boat overseeing a large tarpon
that had jumped aboard thrashing
around causing havoc. That mounted
fish hangs in the R.W. Caldwell office
today. Additionally, Adele and Bob
helped many people quietly and with-
out fanfare. Notably, they took a trip
together to Haiti to see firsthand the
stories of hardship they had heard
and read about. As a result, together,
they paid for and shipped more than
500,000 pounds of black beans to the
Haitian people through a local char-
ity, For HAITI With Love. Adele is
survived and missed by her three
children, April Caldwell Hornsleth
(Poul), Elise'Desi' Caldwell McCarthy
(Vaughn) and R. W. 'Bill' Caldwell,
III (Katie), and her three grandchil-
dren, Poul Hornsleth, III, Kyle Mc-
Carthy and Jody Caldwell Hornsleth
Sepulveda (Rob). A family gather-
ing in Adele's memory will be held
later. The family asks that friends
and acquaintances consider making
a contribution in Adele's memory to
For HAITI With Love, P.O. Box 1017,
Palm Harbor, FL 34682-1017, http://
www.forhaitiwithlove.org/ or to the
Gulfport Library or to the Gulfport
Historical Society.

30, 1920 passed away June 1, 2010.

nooga Retail Merchants Association.

Beach. Sterling passed away May
28th surrounded by his loving family
and friends. He was predeceased by
his father, Sterling Jasper Clarke.
He is survived by his soul-mate, Amy
Cannon; his adoring mother, Eleanor
Clarke; sister, Sue Lea (Alex);
nephew, Matthew, and countless
friends who all were like family to
him. He moved to St. Pete Beach in
1997 from Louisville, KY. He worked
at PJ's Seafood Restaurant until
2005, when he realized his dream
and opened his own restaurant,
Sterling's Beach Bistro. He put his
love into every dish he prepared and
quickly developed a loyal following,
and his "family" continued to grow.
Sterling loved the beach, swimming
in the Gulf day or night, and snook
fishing (only in season, of course). His
favorite place to get away to was Isla
Mujeres, Mexico, and he found great
pleasure in taking his friends there
to share the beauty of the island. He
played basketball at West Virginia
State and Keene State before moving
to Chile to play in the South American
professional league. He was also a
Kentucky Colonel, and a member of
the American Cornhole Association.
Known by his friends as the "gentle
giant", he was a big man with an
even bigger heart. Nothing made
him happier than bringing a smile to
those around him. His amazing sense
of humor will never be forgotten. He
will be dearly missed by every soul
that he touched, including his canine
companions Maggie, Roscoe, and
Rusty. He was the best friend anyone
could have ever asked for, and no
one will ever be able to fill his shoes.
A Celebration of Life will be held
on Sunday, June 6th at 2 p.m. at
Bayside Banquets, 5501 Gulf Blvd.,
St. Pete Beach. In lieu of flowers,
donations may be made to the family.

Mountcastle dispels myths about vein treatment
Mouncaste Vein Centers oers effective, safe and painess reatmens.

In an initial free cosultation, Daniel Mountcasdt MDD, takes the time
to explain to each of patients the common p m associated with
vins in the legsand to desribe the eatmentseoffers.
"When rm don," Dr. Mountastle boast, "joull know more about
vein problems than 95 percent of he physicans m nea County.
Yotu be able to stand in ne at the d=cagut at a groerystore, looking
at the other shoppers, and point out corona phlebectasia or stasis
'Not rodetscienc
According to Dr. Mountcastle, vein disease is actually one of the
simplest probles in the medical proksion It is a mechanical in nature,
nvoving only vessels and valves and gravity. Tre are rno mplicated
bihemical issues.
'I's not rodket scenee" Dr. Moun aste says. He explains that there
are five major systems of veins that drain the surface of each leg.
"Picture them as upside-down trees, with a trunk (vein), branches
(smaller veins) ad twist (capillaries)"
Thee veins have valves about every six inches When leg muscles
contract the valves in the trunk of this tre allow blood to flow one way
- upward toward he heart
When one of the valves fai the branches and twigs below must hold
up th weight of a column of blood all the way up to the heart resulting
in increased pressure. Failed valves may cause veins to distend and
becomepail varii both on the surface of he leg and inside the
le w brings about pain cramp restless and tiedgs
Also, surface capillaries may distend and become sder vens or,
with the increased pressure, fluid with protein and blood cells may leak
fromdeeper capillaries causing swelling and skin chang
"It all comes down to failed valves" r. Mountcastle erplairs. Failed
valves in the veins can lead to a laundry list of conditions such as
swollen ankles, night cramps, charley horse cramps red or brown
d raion, painul and tired aching legs, ulceraon scaling, itching
burning skin, varicose veins and spider veins and purple ankles and
"We hear a lot of people say that what we do is all cosmetic," Dr.
MoutrIastle said, addring one of the primary misconceptions about
his field. "No hardly anything in vein surgery is stity cmetic" By
his office's estimates, 9 percnt of the work they do is medically
necessary and paid
for by Medicare and
private insurance
"Vein treatment is
no more expensive
than most dental
care," Dr.
Mountcastle added.
Except for simple,
cosmetic spider vein
injections, Medicare
and private insurance
plans pay for all
investigations and
treatments. For self-
pay patients,
Mountcaste Vein
Centers offers the
Care Credit plan with
Daniel Mountcastle, M.D markedly reduced
costs and no interest
for the first year.
Following isa short qui7 regarding other myths about vein treatment
1. Veins problems are mainly a woman's iue FALSE. In fact half
of Dr. Mountcast's patients are men.
2 Vein tratlnt is painful FAISE Dr. Mountcatlepeafoms thoee
typs of tratnt, none of which are painful.
3. Vein ttreatnnt takes a long time FALSE Each of the treatments
offered by the centers takes about 45 minutes in the office

4. Recovery from vein treatment is long FALSE. Patients can go
back to normal activity the same day from a treatment.
5. Weight loss is an important factor in leg vein problems FALSE.
Weight has nothing to do with valve failure. In fact, some of Dr.
Mountcastle's patients arelean triathlees.
6. Leg vein failure always results visible varicose veins FALSE
Patients can have terrible variose veins inside their leg with painful
tired legs and their legs
can appear to be Pix--tly
normal. In face, 90
percent of all varicose
veins are inride the leg
Following a focused
physical exam,
Mountcastle Vein
Centers perform a
detailed ultrasound
exam checking for deep
clots and screening the
arteries. Then, the five BE0iE ft
veins draining the
surface in each leg are
examined by meug
diediameter of the vekis
and testing the valves
while looking for
backward flow.
The results from the
exam are clear: Valve
problems, backward
fow and dilated veins
are either there or they
are not. Dr. kMountcase

N othing illustrates the
absurdity of the diversity-
first movement than the
make-up of the U.S. Supreme Court.
Of diversity may it talk; of diversity
it is not; of politics and political
influence from an entrenched
educational elite it is.
In the broader sense, consider that
the president's newest nominee,
Elena Kagan would bring to the
court its third female. That continues
the gender balancing, and moves it
to one-third of the total number of
justices (9). Women are at least half
the population. Is that diversity? Do
women think differently than men?
You betcha! (see Men are from Mars,
Women are from Venus).
However, it also brings religious
imbalance. Kagan will be the third
Jew on the court. She would join
Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Stephen

Breyer. Again, one-third. Does
religion color one's thought? Since it
is a belief system, one would presume
so. Unfortunately, I don't have any
handy illustrations, but I'm going
to go with a "yes". However, Jews
represent only 1.3 per cent of the
religious population.
As for the rest of the court, with the
retirement of John Paul Stevens,
they are all Catholics. Catholics
are 24 per cent of the Christian
population. Protestants represent
52 per cent. And, Christians are only
76 per cent of the population. Where
is the diversity?
That brings us to diversity of
education. All are attorneys although
they need not be constitutionally.
Where did they get educated?
Read and see whether this is
diverse (undergrad first, law school
second): Kagan: Hunter College (

Manhattan) and Harvard; Breyer:
Stanford (California) and Harvard;
Sam Alito: Princeton and Yale; John
Roberts: Harvard, Harvard; Sonia
Sotomayor: Princeton, Princeton;
Ginsburg: Columbia and Harvard;
Anthony Kennedy: Stanford and
Harvard; Antonin Scalia: George
Washington, Harvard; Clarence
Thomas: Holy Cross and Yale.
All received law degrees from Ivy
League schools, all but two were
educated in East coast undergrad
schools. All with the exception of
Thomas came from large cities.
Only Thomas is from the South. All
worked in major political centers.
Only Sotomayor and Thomas have
less than comfortable economic
backgrounds. Sotomayor is Hispanic
and Thomas is Negro (African-
American). Only Thomas comes
from a real small town Pin Point,
Georgia and only Thomas grew up
truly poor.
Diversity aside, all were (and
are) high achievers, academically
and otherwise. Many had magna,
summa or cum laude by their
names. Yes, including Thomas who
also studied for the priesthood and
was an activist black on campus at
Holy Cross.
This is not a picture of diversity
of background and experience with
one or two exceptions. Interestingly,
in spite of the lack of diversity (as
defined in most of America), there is,
on the court, a diversity of opinion.
That's why there are few unanimous
decisions. Hmm. Does that mean
that diversity of background doesn't
mean much at least in intellectual
matters? Or, does it mean that we
perceive diversity incorrectly? Or,
maybe diversity isn't measured
by race or ethnic background, or
education, or upbringing.
Just maybe diversity is an
individual thing and we should get
back to thinking about individuals
rather than groups.

Gulfport Centennial Countdown Continues!

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

Who were the Manns of the Mann Fish Company, and when did they
operate their business? Answer next week.

In just 18 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.
Last week's picture showed Gulfport's
first town hall. It was built in 1913 in
Chase Park, about where the dog park is
now located, for a total cost of $1259.75.
Painted yellow and wired for electricity, it
would stand there until 1927 when it was
moved northward to the present city hall
complex. In 1953 it was auctioned off for
the building materials.

an RFP and what is this list and why is it on the web site?

A: RFP stands for "Request For Proposals." These proposals are for
three things: writing grants, making city buildings more energy efficient,
and lobbyists. According to the city manager's office, city staff created the
shortlist (and did the scoring of each company) and posted it on the web

Attorney Keith Sanders,
Handles Bankruptcies with Experience and Sensitivity

Y ou could say my
motto is 'been
there, done that',"
says Keith Sanders, from
Sanders Law, P.A.
He says that for two
reasons. First, he says
his more than 18 years
of experience as an at-
torney specializing in
handling "literally thou-
sands" of bankrupt-
cies means that he has
dealt with virtually any
kind of problem or issue
that might arise with
them. And, secondly,
he had to file a Chapter
13 bankruptcy himself a
few years ago. He says
that experience makes
him very sensitive to the
kinds of things people
face when making the
difficult decision to file.
"Most attorneys have
never been in a situa-
tion where they have
been worried about how
to keep the lights on, but
I have been there myself
so I can really relate to
what people are going
through," said Sanders.
"Plus, many people are
very embarrassed when
they come to me, but
when I tell them how
embarrassing it was for
me to have to stand in
front of judges and col-
leagues who knew me
and go through the pro-
cess myself, that usu-
ally helps to put people

more at ease and under-
stand that I have been
there and done that MY-
"You know, in 99 per-
cent of bankruptcy cases
the situation is that bad
things happen to good
people. They have gone
through an expensive
health crisis or a divorce
or just got in over their
head with debt."
He began his career as
a staff attorney for the
U.S. Trustee in Atlanta.
He is licensed to practice
law in both Florida and
"I like what I do be-
cause I feel like I can
help people get a fresh
start," said Sanders.
"Since the initial con-
sultation is free, you re-
ally don't have anything
to lose to meet with me
and we can assess your
situation and see how
it might be best for you
to proceed. Bankruptcy
can be one solution to
getting back on your feet
financially, but it may
not be the best or only
solution for you.
Sanders has held a
number of seminars and

Yv1J.UI.A yrvrcuorvs.. pa-
pers concerning bank-
ruptcy law in general,
ECF requirements and
new issues. He is a
former director of the
Bankruptcy Section of
the State Bar of Geor-
The firm also handles
Short Sale negotiations,
defense against foreclo-
sures, wills & trusts,
civil litigation and loan
Outside of the court-
room, Sanders lives in
an unusual home in
Gulfport that was one
of the featured proper-
ties in a recent Pink Fla-
mingo Tour of Homes. It
has a tree growing right
up through the floor and
up through the ceiling of
his kitchen. He has five
dogs and a cat.

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

Keep Pinellas Beautiful
Needs Volunteers
Although there is no imminent
threat of oil from the Deepwater
Horizon spill making landfall in
Pinellas County, volunteers are
needed to register for a pre-oil beach
cleanup, if necessary. There is no
date or time for the event; it will be
scheduled only if a notification is
received from the U.S. Coast Guard
that oil residue threatens the Pinellas
County shoreline. To register for the
Special Beach Cleanup, visit www.
pinvol.org. Those who register will
be notified by e-mail if oil landfall is
expected within 48 hours. Removing
litter ahead of time would speed oil
cleanup by reducing the amount of
potentially contaminated material,
remediation time, cost, and human
exposure to harmful materials. Only
trained contractors, not volunteers,
would be utilized to clean up oil
impacted shorelines or any activities
involving direct contact with oil.
Keep Pinellas Beautiful (local anti-
litter organization) is coordinating
the countywide event in cooperation
with the U.S. Coast Guard and local
beach managers. According to Bill
Sanders, executive director of Keep
Pinellas Beautiful, "Our goal is to
clean up every inch of the Pinellas
County coastline, including the
outer islands." Each area will have
a designated site captain to organize
the volunteers and ensure that no
harm comes to nesting birds or
turtles. Anyone interested in fighting
litter and safeguarding local beaches
is encouraged to register, including
Gabber June 10 -June 16, 2010

individuals, families, or community
groups. At least 2,000 volunteers
are needed. For more information,
call Keep Pinellas Beautiful at
For additional volunteer
opportunities (such as coastline
watcher or bird counter), visit www.
htm, and select Volunteer
Opportunities. For information on
the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, call

Special Ops Warrior Foundation Raises Needed Funds for Education

Rolling Thunder Motorcycle Club members (left to right) Tony "Hawkeye" Camp, Club Secretary Erika "Biggun" Winn, BBQ King Derrick
Jerome, Nellie "Kuntry" DeArmand and Brandon branch Club President Jim Hillbilly" Linesberry drove down from Tampa/Brandon area to
attend the BBQ fundraiser for the Special Operations Warrior Foundation.

By Leigh Clifton
Last Saturday afternoon, a
large group of veterans, their
families, friends, musicians
and regular citizens gathered
in a large back yard in
Gulfport to raise money
for the Special Operations
Warrior Foundation. This
fund provides money for the
education of the children
of any Special Ops soldier
killed in action or in training.
Local Gulfport volunteer for
the Foundation Shelly Vail
helped organize the BBQ,
catered by Derrick Jerome.
Several featured bands
comprised mostly of veterans
played music on a set-up
stage all afternoon. The
donation of $10 at the door,
as well as a silent auction
and private donations
raised more than $1100.00
for the Foundation. Other
donations were provided by
the Tampa Bay Lightning,
local Gulfport businesses
and Rolling Thunder, the
motorcycle club. Their
Tampa-area branch was
well-represented; Brandon
branch president Jim
"Hillbilly" Linesberry and
Historian Tony "Hawkeye"

Camp, both veterans rode
Erika" Biggun" Winn and
Nellie "Kuntry" DeArmand
rode down on their Harley's.
Winn is the Secretary of the
club. Her husband is active
military; DeArmand is a club
member and fellow veteran.
For Rolling Thunder, the
Foundation charity is the
biggest beneficiaries of their
many fundraisers.
Among all the branches
of the military, there is a
uniquely exclusive group of
fighting individuals know
as Special Operations, or
Special Ops. This subgroup,
whether the Army's Rangers
or Green Berets, the Marine's
Force Recon or the Navy's
Navy Seals, are the elite of
the elite. They are specifically
trained well beyond the
normal basics of warfare.
They are often involved
in special reconnaissance,
covert operations,
unconventional warfare,
foreign internal defense, and
counter -terrorism. They
are among the first ones to
engage in a conflict and the
first to die as a result of that
conflict. It is estimated that
over 60% of the soldiers who

have died in Afghanistan
have been Special Ops; a
lesser percentage have died
in Iraq.
During Desert Storm, in
1980, Special Ops attempted
a rescue of American
hostages that resulted in
eight Special Ops members'
deaths, leaving behind 17
children. Survivors got
together and passed a hat,
giving the money to the
children of the fallen for
their education. Thus, the
Special Operations Warrior
Foundation was formed.
According to Mike
Hennessy, Communications
and Events Manager, the
Foundation has helped
over 100 children receive a
college education; a few have
gone on to get law, medicine
or Masters Degrees.
One hundred percent of the
children's tuition, books, and
materials are all paid for by
the Foundation; a 501 C that
has had a 4-Star rating from
Charity Navigator for the
past four years.
"We're very proud of that
distinction," Hennessy
said. "It shows that we're
committed to our cause of

helping these children of
fallen soldiers."
Hennessy said it never fails
to touch him when a child or
a spouse of a fallen soldier
comes up to him and thanks
him for all of his help.
"You see, we not only provide
for the kid's education; we
also provide $2000 to a
family for travel expenses if
their soldier is wounded and
needs care in a facility away
from home."
Hennessy estimates that as
many as 800 more children
are waiting in the wings;
they will be directly affected
by the wars. They will get
the much-needed funds for
their education from the
Foundation when the time
"It's not easy losing a loved
one to combat," Hennessy
said. "But at least we know
with our charity that we
can directly help those most
affected. Besides money for
college, we offer counseling
and financial assistance. We
take care of our own."

Everyday Heroes: Margo Scannell Wins Spirit of Gulfport Award

Margo Scannell has been a volunteer in Gulfport fc
a key role with the Gulfport Chamber.

By Leigh Clifton
A pint sized lady, originally
hailing from Boston, Mass,(
you "caaaant" miss the
accent when she speaks), Margo
Scannell is a bundle of kinetic energy
rolled into a lady who seems to be
involved in every function the City
of Gulfport's Chamber of Commerce
has sponsored. For the past twelve
years, Margo has volunteered her
time and energy to promote Gulfport
and the many events sponsored here.
Whether it's manning the Chamber
desk at Gecko Fest or Concert in
the Park, helping raise funds for the
police department's Operation Santa,
gathering donations for the Senior
Center Food Bank, collecting school
supplies for Gulfport Elementary
or joining the Gulfport Women's
and Garden Clubs, Margo seems

In May of this year, Margo Scannell
was awarded the coveted Spirit
of Gulfport Award, by the City of
Gulfport, for her endless volunteer
service to the city and its residents.
She received a key to the City, a
beautiful bouquet of flowers and a
certificate of recognition.
"I was very proud to get the award,"
she said. "I'm just doing what I love
to do."
Margo has made a deep connection
with this community and its
businesses; everyone knows her
around town. She smiles at this..
"Gulfport is like one big outdoor
Margo has wonderful things to

mayor like Mike Yakes. No one is
more heartfelt in their promotion
of this city more than him; I can't
imagine him not being the mayor
here. The people, the atmosphere of

community, the genuine sincerity,
everybody seems "real" here. There's
no phoniness- everyone helps one
another. That's what makes Gulfport
so great."
One of the most successful
promotions that Margo has been
involved with is the Welcome pack
for Boaters. When Gulfport began
to sponsor the International and
National sailing Regattas on our
beach, Margo and the Chamber
volunteers put together Welcome
Pack, with charts and info about the
local businesses boaters might want
to utilize.
"We include the Laundromat,
Internet Caf6, the market, marina
and restaurant information, bike
rental, shopping and maps for the
area. We want to put on a good
face for these boaters; these events
bring a lot of revenue to the city. We
collaborate with the local Gulfport
and Boca Ciega Yacht Clubs so we
know when boaters will be in town
and then give the Welcome Packs to
Dennis Frain at the Marina to pass
out. He does a really good job."
Margo was nominated for the Spirit
of Gulfport Award by Vice-Mayor
Michele King, who thinks Margo is a
phenomenal force of nature.
"Margo is like Gulfport's
Ambassador; there's not one thing
that I can think of that she's not
involved in or hasn't helped out on.
She's terrific, such a sweetheart and
she works very hard for this City. I'm
only sorry that I didn't nominate her
Margo received her award on May
4th... it's currently in Boston, on
display at her sister's house.

A 24th Taste of Pinellas
By Leigh Clifton
There was a myriad of delectable smells in the air as the 24th Annual
Taste of Pinellas, to benefit All Children's Hospital, was held last weekend
at Vinoy Park in St. Petersburg. There were more than 100 restaurants
and vendors represented, who all brought their uniquely styled food flavors
to a hungry crowd. Although it was extremely hot and bottled water sales
were through the roof, the crowds were entertained by some pretty stellar
entertainers. Huey Lewis and The News, Martina McBride, Drew Seely,
and America were some of the acts that graced the stage on the beautiful
waterfront downtown. Sunday was Family Fun Day, with special music
acts for the kids, including the School Gyrls, from Nickelodeon and Mitchell
Musso from Hannah Montana In all, the event raised over $300,000 for
All Children's Hospital.
