10th Annual GeckoFest; Celebrating the Quirky Lizard

By Leigh Clifton
Time to make the chips.. a street vendor quickly cuts potatoes into curly strips for a record GeckoFest crowd
last Saturday.
The streets of Gulfport were filled with vendors, characters and all things Gecko last Saturday
as Gulfport celebrated the 10th Annual Gecko Fest. Sponsored by the Gulfport Merchants
Association, the popular street fest has drawn the curious from all over Florida, who come
to experience a unique and funky celebration of the Gecko, Gulfport's official (or unofficial, it

depends who you talk to) mascot.

Red Light Cameras Coming
Gulfport city council approved installing red light
cameras at select intersections throughout the city.
These cameras will, with human assistance, capture
red light violations on camera and mail tickets to
the address listed on the car's registration.
"It doesn't completely remove the human element.
There are people involved in every step," Chief
Vincent said, assuring council that "common sense"
would still play a part.
"The money that gets back to us after it goes
through all the hands is very little," Councilwoman
Jennifer Salmon explained in response to residents'
concern that Gulfport might use these cameras as
a means to supplement the city's budget.
Intersections with red light cameras will have
signs letting drivers know, city manager Jim
O'Reilly said.

Mixed Use Districts
and Overlay Districts
Are a Done Deal
GULFPORT- After two years of design,
resident discussion and discussion at
workshops and council meetings, the
new overlay districts passed the second
and final reading at Tuesday night's
city council meeting. These districts
will allow the mixing of residences
and businesses in certain parts of the
Tangerine Neighborhood. This adds in
residential uses into the commercial
district along 49th street and small,
home-based business in other areas.
City council unanimously approved
the districts.

Osprey Chick at Clam Bayou Named
GULFPORT- At the request of Vice-Mayor Michele King the city's Leisure
Services Department asked local children to name the new osprey chick in Clam
Bayou. The children named the chick "Precious."

Rezoning Homes for Gulfport Elementary
City council voted to rezone portions of some properties north of Gulfport
Elementary. The Pinellas County School Board bought homes north of Gulfport
Elementary and requested a zoning change to those plots of land only. The
properties must get zoned "institutional" because they are now on school

Gulfport's Incorporation
to be Re-enacted
By Lynne Brown
On October 12, 1910, 30 of the
town's 38 registered voters met at
the Casino to cast their ballots on the
question of incorporation. After the
vote for approval by a margin of 23-7,
a mayor and council were elected, as
well as a town clerk and a marshal,
and the name "Gulfport" was
officially, though not unanimously,
On October 12 of this year, 2010,
citizens will re-enact that vote in
celebration of Gulfport's centennial.

The event, which is free to the public,
will be held at 7 p.m. at the Casino

Q. How accurate are these health screenings?
A. Our adherence to stringent protocol, highly trained sonographers, state-of-the-art ultrasound machines, and
board certified interpreting radiologists make the screenings exceedingly accurate. Physician written protocols

Q. Why should I have these tests if I have no symptoms?
A. It is important to have a screening to identify problems before symptoms arise, potentially avoiding a serious
health crisis. Unfortunately, our body's warning signs often come too late.
Q. Does my doctor do these tests as part of my routine checkup?
A. Most physicians can only prescribe ultrasound tests if you are already having symptoms, not for prevention
reasons. Prevention Plus is here to identify disease before a problem occurs.
No Prescription necessary. These test are not included in routine physical.

M curable cancers, before you have symptoms
Board-certified physician reads all tests and only registered sonographers perform exams.

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

----- 'r- --- -- V_
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.

Fraud Seminar
The fourth and final free workshop
alerting consumers to the perils of
foreclosure fraud, and offering direct
assistance referrals for those who
have either fallen behind in their
mortgage payments, or anticipate
missing payments in the future on
Saturday, September 11 at Largo
Library, 120 Central Park Drive in
Largo. Counselors will be available
from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
With more than 33,000 active
foreclosure cases in the Pinellas-
Pasco court system, foreclosure
fraud has become a real problem
in Pinellas County. Unscrupulous
individuals prey upon those who are
in the process of losing their homes,
promising relief, but providing few
tangible results.
Pinellas County's Department
of Justice and Consumer Services
recently received a $100,000 federal
grant to fight foreclosure fraud. The
grant was provided through the
American Recovery & Reinvestment
A Foreclosure Fraud Prevention
Team has been formed with the
Department of Justice and Consumer
Services as project coordinator, along
with Pinellas County Community
Development, St. Petersburg
Neighborhood Housing Services,
Tampa Bay Community Development
Corporation, Gulfcoast Legal
Services, the Pinellas-Pasco Area
Agency on Aging and the Community
Law Program.

Homeowners can get more
information by calling the Pinellas

Kathy Russell, St. Pete: "No, I don't
think so. I believe in religious freedom
in the US, but burning the Quran
would be like burning the Bible. It's a
sacred book; they're both sacred books
to their respective religions. I'm not
sure what that pastor's motive is, but
I think the burning could put troops
and peacekeepers overseas in harm's
way. What happens if an angry mob
in Afghanistan, upset about all this,
harms the American troops who are
actually there to help them? I think
it's a dangerous act. The people that
attacked us on 911 were extremist
Muslims. We can't blame the whole
religion for them."

26, 00

David Ligibel, So. Pasadena: "No.
I have no great love for Muslims but
nobody has the right to desecrate
someone else's religious artifacts.
That would be the same as the Jews
burning the Bible. I don't know that
Muslims actively monitor what goes
on here in the US, but I also don't
think that it would make a difference
anyway. The Muslim extremists are
already crazy; they don't need an
excuse to attack Americans. If we
just had more psychiatrists that
we could send overseas instead of
troops that would at least give the
psychiatrists something to work on
because the Muslims are all crazy
over there. They might use the Quran
burning as another excuse to make a
statement in response. I don't think
their response would be to just burn
an American flag either. I'm sure it
would much bigger than that."

John Hubbs, Seminole: "Absolutely
not. I don't feel that he should be
allowed to desecrate any religion.
The people that caused 911 should
be blamed, not their faith. You can't
desecrate the religion because some
of the believers are extremists. I do
think it would put American troops in
harm's way. The Quran is as sacred to
Muslims as the Bible is to Christians.
I think that the importance of religion
has been blown way out of proportion.
Our God isn't any different than
other religions' God. Having been
exposed to the Jewish faith, I've
seen that first-hand. I think people
should learn about a religion before
they condemn it. Perhaps the pastor
should read it. Now, on the other
hand, I don't think that a Muslim
mosque should be built near Ground
Zero in New York. I think that is a
slap in the face to America."

Amanda Hayes, Gulfport: "No, I think that's going a little too far; that's
overstepping the boundary when it comes to religion. It's like doing something
to the Jews as a Christian. I think it would definitely make the troops more
of a target; it would give the Muslim extremists more of an excuse to go after
the American troops. History seems to keep repeating itself. The question of
religious freedom and expression has been a constant fight; whose is right and
whose is wrong? The world is like a melting pot; sooner or later it will inevitably
spill over."

Special Events Approved But

Maybe Not in Two Years
GULFPORT- Although the city approved a list of special events, city
manager Jim O'Reilly told city council that the city would be scaling back its
participation in some events next year.
"I don't mean to be the dark cloud. We're in good shape financially, but I
wanted to start.... weaning off... as we move away from our levels of subsidies
and support. In the future I will probably bring you a less intense list than
you see here," Mr. O'Reilly told council about the number of events the city
subsidizes. Although Mr. O'Reilly said this wouldn't happen in the coming
budget year, Gulfport Chamber of Commerce president Lori Rosso expressed
dismay at his comments.
"Before you start making budget cuts when it comes to events, (remember)
this is economic development," Ms. Rosso told council.
"I wouldn't want to see us lose any of the events we have," Vice-Mayor
Michele King said, adding that she would like to see the city uniformly apply
its policy that non-profits get one free event in a city building. But, she added,
"if you want to maintain those services like we have, like GEMS, something
else has to give. It's a $10 million budget and if you squeeze at one end it's
going to come out the other."

ItStoroscoDe Guide

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Every
area of your life -- relationships,
health, and financial, professional
and social realms--is interdependent.
That is why when you focus on one
area intensely, you often find that
another area suffers. This week,
your easy-going attitude and general
optimism will favorably affect the
whole picture.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Some
people are naturally more intense
than others. You are usually not in
that category, preferring to stay cool,
breezy and lighthearted. However,
you may make an exception this
week because you feel so strongly
about a certain situation, principle or
person. A passionate Scorpio may be
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). It's
like you know you're supposed to
hitch your wagon to a star, but
which one? Right now, the Polaris
seems just as appealing as Sirius or
Vega. If you listen closely, you might
be able to hear a celestial calling.
And by Thursday, you're likely to
feel it, too -- a magnetic pull that
guides your heart's compass.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21).
There will be a slight lull for you.
But before you decide you don't have
enough choices or interesting things
going on, think about this: You
were once a zygote -- a single-celled
organism. It doesn't get simpler than
that. That stage didn't last very long,
and neither will this one. Enjoy it
while it lasts.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19).
Stick with the thing that works for
you. This week your success depends
on one quality: enthusiasm. There
needn't be a specific reason for your
good mood. Any old reason will do.
You have the power to inspire people
who would not otherwise have been
moved to action. Enter rooms full of
people, and shine.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18).

Beware of the "it's only" syndrome.
"It's only a game," they will say. "It's
only lunch." "It's only a temporary
arrangement." Believe the opposite
about these statements. If they have
to downgrade them by using the
"only" word, it means some thought
went into it. The matter is more
important than it seems.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). In
ancient Greece, kissing was a gesture
of agreement and respect. Thus, it
was common for politicians and work
colleagues to kiss. Alas, you are not
in ancient Greece, so stay cool. It's
wise to keep kisses, as well as strong
emotions of any sort, out of your
professional life.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Plan
ahead so that you can get just the
right amount of sleep tonight -- too
little or too much will start off your
week with discord. This is only one of
the elements you can control in order
to influence your week for the better.
There are several forward-thinking
actions you can take in order to make
your life run smoothly.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). One
reason for why a relationship is
stressful to you is that you can't
predict what the other person will
do. You are not sure what this person
wants from you. It makes you feel
uncertain about when and how to
approach. This week you can figure
out this complicated relationship.
Show no fear. Put your cards on the
GEMINI (I l.y 21-June 21). Getting
angry and stressed out boosts
your cortisol levels in a way that
suppresses your immune system.
That's why clearing the air between
you and a certain person is more
than just a nice thing to do. It could
actually keep you from getting sick.
Work things out and you will be
successful, happy and healthy.
CANCER (June 22-July 22).
Unlike qualities such as beauty or

strength, wisdom is not bestowed
upon a person from birth. It is hard
won throughout life or, for those who
believe in reincarnation, throughout
several of them. You'll make a wise
choice, and it is because you have
made mistakes in the past that you
are able to make this choice.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You are on
a mission this week and will need
plenty of support from friends. You
will be like the lion in "The Wizard
of Oz," who seeks courage from the
wizard only to find that he is already
one of the most courageous beasts
around. Courage isn't the absence
of fear, but the willingness to feel it
and go on anyway.
This Week's Birthdays:
Though you will have adventurous
experiences with your loved ones,
it is your quiet understanding of
yourself that allows you to extract
great excitement from your daily life.
You will appreciate your strengths
and build on your talents, and you'll
discover that you can do more than
you ever thought you could. New
friends teach you and learn from
you in October. Celebrate a special
relationship in November. A brush
with fame happens in December.
October and July are your most
lucrative months.

Local Business Willing to Take a Chance
on Getting Your Business
You look forward to the day you can afford to
hire a house cleaner to come in once a week
and tidy up the house. You don't think twice
about using the services of a lawn mainte-
nance company. You even treat yourself to car y i
wash every week or two. You work hard to
reward yourself to the little pleasures in life.
What about that other member of the family
that is usually not treated to anything on a
regular schedule except for grooming, maybe.
Why not give a great treat for you and your
furry friend. Who picks up the poop. If anyone
does, it is always considered the most discussing task in the house. It is infested with worms,
maggots, covered with flies and the smell is sickening.
Cleaning the poop off your lawn cost a lot less than you think. Pet Butler will clean the poop once a
week for only $10.75 a week for one dog. Add an additional $2.00 for each additional dog. When
someone signs up for our service they rarely give it up. We are making a special offer to see how
much you love Pet Butler.
Here's what some of our customer had to say:
"If I had known the service was so inexpensive I would have signed up a long time ago."
A.D. Pinellas Park, FL
"It is always a pleasure to see you each week. Buddy & Lucy love it too! Having Pet Butler is the best
thing I have ever done for myself!
Michelle Largo, FL
For first time customers only we are offering our service for 50% off for the first 3 months. No
contract, no further obligation. We will cancel your service any time you wish. We don't think you will
want to give it up but it will be up to you. After the three months is up your price will go to the
regular price. After all we have to make a living too.
There are a limited number of customers we can service at this price so don't wait too long.

GeckoFest, from front page
This year's layout was a bit different from last year's;
the vendors were placed in the center of the street, instead
of curbside. This enabled the local businesses, which pay
a lot of money to be on Beach Blvd, better access to the
thousands of potential customers who flock to Gulfport for
the festival. But the traffic flow felt imbalanced and made
it difficult to access some of the vendors on the other side of
the street. Regardless of the shopping limitations brought
on by the change in travel flow, thousands happily sported
impressive attempts at Gecko costuming. There were
magnificent hats, adorned with all manner of Gecko; there
were hair-dos replete with color, feathers and decorations,
and the outfits..... Outrageously fabulous! Strolling pirates
both regaled and frightened innocent young children with
tales of life on the high seas and street musicians played
every corner of the walk. Food vendors kept the hungry
throngs sated with real root beer, potato curls, fried
shrimp, lemon ices and sausage and pepper sandwiches.
For the kids at the Fest, a Zhu Zhu petting zoo offered the
children an opportunity to race the little furry creatures
around a track. The completion of the children's obstacle
course ended with a gong-ringing, signaling success. There
were even $5.00 camel rides with a REAL camel! Everyone
stayed well beyond the infamous spitting distance.
The Industrial Arts Center was also part of the festivities;
they were celebrating their second anniversary, offering
glass blowing demonstrations and information.
The Gecko Fest is a time-honored tradition of Gulfport's
that celebrates the wonderful individuality and creativity
that makes our city so delightfully unique. It is indeed a
truly one of a kind event and showcases Gulfport at its
best. Now where DID that Gecko go? I think I see him on a
hat... Come back here lizard!

. kj

Above: Deb and Mike Cordmer, along with grandchildren Kayleb and
Daniel Wright came to Gecko Fest from Zephyrhills. "We saw it online and
thought it would be fun to bring the kids. So we scrounged around and
put these wacky outfits together from stuff we had at the house. We're
having a blast!" Deb Cordmer said.

Below: Kids play at the Zhu-Zhu play station. They offered a little
something for everyone.

Dire Need for Big
Brothers/Big Sisters
Who taught you to tie your first shoe?
Who went to the first game you ever
played in? Big Brothers Big Sisters
is currently seeking volunteers to be
a part of many "firsts" for children
right here in Pinellas County. There
are more than 200 children on the
waiting list hoping for a Big Brother,
Big Sister, or Big Couple. By investing
just a few hours a month, volunteers
can make a life changing impact on
a child.
Big Brothers Big Sisters of Pinellas
County is in dire need of mentors,
especially male and minority mentors.
There are more than 200 boys on the
waiting list waiting to be matched
with a positive role model. More than
74% percent of children waiting for
a "Big" are boys, but only 34 out of
every 100 inquiries to volunteer come
from men. Now more than ever, Big
Brothers Big Sisters needs male
volunteers to step up and help kids.
Economic circumstances have
created a greater need for more
families to have professionally
backed long-term mentoring support.
Single-parent homes, neighborhoods
with gangs and crime, poor role
models and poverty can lead a child
to despair, lack of self-worth and
ultimately poor choices. In addition,
there are an increasing number of
children being raised by relative
caregivers in Pinellas County. These
caregivers are unexpectedly faced
with the challenge of raising children
with time and resource constraints.
Fortunately there are people who are
willing to step up and provide these
children with a positive, caring role
Mentoring is one of the most
rewarding, enjoyable and simple
things a volunteer can do. For as
little as one hour a week, volunteers
can add joy to the life of a child, and
ultimately, contribute greatly to his
or her potential. Together, "Bigs"
and "Littles" do simple, everyday
activities, such as going to a sporting
event, playing a game, going to a
park, or watching movies.
You don't have to change your life
to change the life of a child. Help Big
Brothers Big Sisters change the lives
of children and learn how you can

Scallop Search Yields Small Batch
By Cathy Salustri

Last month's Great
Bay Scallop Search
yielded only 32
scallops during the
annual event, the
lowest number since
2006, when volunteer
scallop hunters
found 17 scallops.
Zo tTampa Bay Watch
representative said
that the cold winter as
well as recent heavy
Peter Clark, Executive Director of Tampa Bay Watch, examines rainfalls could have
a scallop with a young volunteer. contributed to the low
Photo courtesy of Tampa Bay Watch. count.
Over 150 volunteers in 35 boats and 15 kayaks took to the water, snorkeling
Boca Ciega and Lower Tampa Bays in search of the two-inch scallop, which
lives in grass beds. Scallops can filter about 15 gallons of water per hour,
making them both excellent indicators of water quality and susceptible to
things like red tide or toxins.
Dredging as well as an business and city waste runoff dealt a devastating
blow to the bay scallop population in the early 1960s, Tampa Bay Watch says
on its web site, but enforcement of the Clean Water Act has helped foster a
gradual return of the tiny bivalve.
"We can witness the health of the Bay by tracking the number of scallops
found each year," Peter Clark, Executive Director of Tampa Bay Watch, said.
Last year, volunteers found the most scallops in the bay since Tampa Bay
Watch began the Great Bay Scallop Search in 1996. Up until 2005, counts
vacillated between 21 and 75. The red tides of 2005 and 2006 could have
impacted the number of scallops those years. In 2007, the number of scallops
shot up to 555 and continued to rise, reaching an apex last year with 674
"Every year we hope the number of scallops found increases, which means
that water quality and habitat are also improving in our estuary," Mr. Clark

Something' on my mind
a By Bill Northrop B_Northrop@theGabber.com

How Will They Tax
Last week I wrote about taxes,
the need for them, and the
dislike of them. The remaining
question is what to do about them.
Just about everything is taxed and
if it isn't, it probably will be. Locals,
states and the feds need your money
and they are going to take it.
The focus has to be on federal
taxes. Most of your money goes to
Washington, D. C., and there are
56,000 pages (maybe more; that's
just one estimate) that control who
pays what and who doesn't have to
pay what. For instance, if Congress
does not renew the 2001 and 2003
tax cuts by January 1st, here's what
will happen: personal income taxes
will go up for everyone; itemized
deductions and personal exemptions
will phase out; there will be higher
taxes on marriage and family; the

estate (death) tax will return; there
will be higher taxes on savers and
The point is not that increases in
taxes are wrong, but that it is all
very complicated and expensive to
figure out. Exemptions, deductions,
exclusions, and a whole set of words
and rules and regulations that the
Internal Revenue Service itself can't
always decipher. There has to be a
simpler way.
Two basic methods have been
proposed. One is a flat tax. No
exemptions, no deductions (maybe
a base at which the tax is applied),
and the tax applied to all income.
Proposed (probably not first) by Steve
Forbes (Forbes magazine) when he
was running for President the rate,
if I recall correctly, was calculated to
be 17%. It would be accompanied by
simple forms, no accountants needed,
very little paper work.

A flat tax is not new. Some states
apply their income taxes that way as
do some local municipalities. Some
include only earned income; others
include interest, dividends, and
capital gains. Anyway it is simple.
The second proposal came from a
radio personality, Neil Boortz and a
Georgia congressman, whose name
I can't recall at the moment. It's
called the Fair Tax. It's a national
consumption tax that would replace
all other federal taxes including
Social Security, Medicare (that's 15%
right there) and excise and corporate
taxes. Its rate would be 21 per cent.
While the tax would be applied to the
cost of goods and services, those base
costs would drop because companies
would not be paying taxes.
Supposedly, it would result in the
elimination of the IRS because the
tax would be collected at point of
purchase just as sales taxes are now.
The point, again, is that this would
simplify taxing. It is called the Fair
Tax because it would hit everyone
evenly and taxpayers would have
control of the tax through control
of spending. Even the underground
economy, from the drug trade to the
cash-under-the table crowd would
eventually get hit.
As for those below the poverty
level line, they would get a monthly
Of course, there is a third proposal.
That is a national sales tax called the
Value Added Tax. The big problem
is that this would be on top of all
existing taxes. So, in my mind, it's
a non-player. Personally, the Fair
Tax is the most intriguing because it
provides so much independence. I'll
do more on this sometime later with
more detail.
The problem is getting any changes
except "special interest" changes. In
the past, these have contributed to
the thousands and thousands of pages
of regulations and the need to hire an
expert to interpret them. However,
the number of pages doesn't seem
to matter because as we've noted
in the medical care and financial
regulation reform bills, congress men
and women don't bother to read them

In just 5 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 photo shown last week was of R.W.
Caldwell's real estate and insurance
business in its 1950s location at 5433
Shore Boulevard. Caldwell had come to
Gulfport in 1935, formed a partnership
with Edwin Markham, and later opened
his own business, which is today, at over
70 years, the oldest in Gulfport, and still
operated by Caldwell family members.

Karman Gias, VW busses, modified hot rods and of course, the popular VW
Bug all vied for a chance to be the best of the show. The most popular among
the crowd was the VW Convertible Bug; air-cooled and funky, a classic that is
still seen on the road today.
"I remember having one of these in college," said Jeannie Turbit of the VW
Convertible. "I would drive with my friends all piled in the back seat, radio
blaring... The car was indestructible, but you did have to remember to put oil
in it."
Some of the cars were pristine and beautifully restored and some looked,
well, not so much. One of the prettiest VW Bugs was a 1964 red convertible
owned by John Mihaley, from Seminole. He says he's probably had about 200
VWs in his lifetime. He bought his first VW Bug in 1964; a 1961 model that he
paid $250.00 for. He was only making $86.00 a week back then.
"I've always loved these little cars. You can work on them yourself and they're
not really too complicated. The engine is a 40 horsepower; I can do 70 on the
highway with no problem and I can put $5.00 worth of gas in it and drive for

The car Mihaley had at the show has been restored to original condition but
he has put on some extra chrome that can easily be removed if the car was
judged for authenticity. He has made basket covers for the back taillights .
"Sometimes I gaudy 'em up!" he laughs. "I like to make them look pretty, but
all the chrome is detachable."
Mihaley, who used to own a body shop, said he has restored 18 of the Bugs;
he paints and rebuilds them himself in his garage. But a heart attack last year
has slowed him down a bit.

What is a Guardianship?
Part 2
This article is a continuation of our
previous article regarding "What Is A
If someone is an adult resident of
the State of Florida, that person
is potentially qualified to serve as
a guardian in Florida. Likewise, a
close relative of a ward who is not
a resident of the State of Florida
may also be qualified to serve as a
guardian. However, if a proposed
guardian is incapable of performing
the duties of a guardian or has been
convicted of a felony, that person
cannot be appointed by the Probate
Court as a guardian. Generally,
the Probate Court will give careful

consideration to the wishes and
desires expressed by a ward as to the
selection of a guardian.
Guardians are required to be bonded
and may be required to complete a
Court-approved training program for
guardians. Guardians are required by
the Probate Court to be represented
by a lawyer. All guardianship reports
are presented to the Probate Court
for review and approval. In the event
a guardian does not carry out his or
her duties in a responsible manner,
the guardian is subject to removal by
the Probate Court.
Guardianship is an expensive and
time-consuming process. Use of less
severe alternatives to guardianship
is highly recommended. For example,
the use of a durable power of attorney,
a health care directive and/or a
revocable living trust may eliminate
the need for a guardianship thereby
reducing the costs and time delay
associated with guardianships.

Gulfport Beach August Water Quality Report

By Cathy Salustri
Each week the City of Gulfport tests the water quality
in the waters off Gulfport Beach. Gulfport has contracted
with the City of St. Petersburg for the tests.
Every month The Gabber publishes the results of those
tests. If, at any time, the tests show that the water quality
poses a health risk, the City of Gulfport will issue a Health
Advisory. Gulfport typically receives test results within a
week of taking the sample.
Currently, the City tests for two things: enterococcus
and fecal coliform. Scientists consider enterococcus a
common bacteria found in animal and human intestines,
and, resultingly, in human and animal excrement.
Federal standards used to require agencies to measure
water quality by the amount of fecal coliform along public
beach waters but recently have replaced fecal coliform
with enterococcus as the standard. Fecal coliform also Sample Date Enterococcus Fecal Coliform
comes from the waste of warm-blooded animals, including
humans. August 3 14 12
The City of Gulfport currently tests for both types of August 10 16 21
bacteria. Test results will help classify Gulfport Harbor as
'good", "moderate", or "poor". Enterococcus of less than 35 August 17 12 14
parts per 100 milliliter and fecal coliform of less than 199
per 100 milliliter of saltwater indicate good water quality. August 26 72 180
For more information, contact the City of Gulfport at 893- August 31 130 22
NOTE: Gulfport Public Works Director Don Sopak ordered
follow-up sampling the day he received the elevated test
results back from the lab. That round of tests returned
an enterococcus level of 32 and fecal coliform of 18. Mr.
Sopak told the Gabber he suspected the runoff from the
heavy rains contributed to elevated counts.

Sen us you prselaeb

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 forget all evil
against me and that in all instances of my life
you are with me, I want in this short prayer to
thankyou 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. The
person must say this prayer for 3 consecutive
days. After 3 days the favor requested will be
granted, even if it may appear difficult. This
prayer must be published immediately after
the favor is granted, without mentioning the
favor, only your initials should appear at the
bottom. T.T.D.
- 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.

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 all 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.
