Federal Stimulus

Money Spent Locally
By Melissa Lattman
Federal stimulus funds have helped local
law enforcement agencies.
On Feb. 13, 2009 Congress passed the
American Recovery and Reinvestment
Act of 2009 and President Barack Obama
signed it into law several days later. The
stimulus fund stated goals included creating
and saving jobs, spurring economic activity
and investing in long-term growth and
fostering accountability and transparency in
government spending. The Web site www.
recovery.gov provides tracking for the public
of where the money goes.
So where has the stimulus money gone
and how has it helped locally? The Web
site shows from February 17, 2009 through
June 30, 2010 $9.6 billion was awarded to
Florida. Plugging in St. Pete Beach's zip code
of 33706 shows four grants totaling $423,115
as of Sept. 7, 2010.
St. Pete Beach received an award for
$232,872 through the COPS Hiring Recovery
Program, which provides funding directly
to law enforcement agencies to hire and
rehire law enforcement officers to create
and preserve jobs and to increase their
community policing capacity and crime
prevention efforts.
The stimulus funding provides for the
salary of a St. Pete Beach police officer for
three years basically preventing a layoff and/
or not leaving a vacancy if someone left the

Guliport Turns Down
Dog Beach
By Cathy Salustri
Despite requests from over 100 Gulfportians, city
council said that the city would not pursue the creation
of a dog beach. Earlier this year, Gulfport received a copy
of a petition as well as e-mails and letters requesting a
dog area on Gulfport's public beach. Councilman Sam
Henderson, at the request of residents, brought the
suggestion before city council.
At the workshop on August 26, he told council that

Stimulus, from front page
The grant monies kept St. Pete
Beach's authorized sworn officer
strength at 27, said Dan O'Connor
administrative services supervisor
for the police department.
St. Pete Beach also received an
award of $160,490 through the
Edward Byrne Memorial Justice
Assistance Grant Program. The
funds purchased the new main
emergency dispatch console for the
city, which is used for all emergency
calls coming into the city. The new all
digital console replaced a unit that
was about 20 years old, O'Connor
The remaining $29,753 went to
Treasure Island, which has the same
zip code as St. Pete Beach. The funds
were designated for law enforcement
Stimulus Money in 33707
Plugging in Gulfport's zip code
showed $237,126 went for the sale
of equipment by Crystal Clear
Technologies on Beach Boulevard
South. The Department of Labor
purchased Hewlett-Packard
computer servers from the local
company for the Labor Department's
data centers.
The city of South Pasadena, also
with a 33707 zip code, was awarded
$7,085 for law enforcement projects.
The money has not yet been received
by South Pasadena. The monies will
cover the purchase of a solar-powered
speed check display to monitor
motorists' speed on the roadways.
The city's fire chief applied for the
grant for the city said Assistant
Finance Director Gerald Schuster.

4) Haveyougota
question for your
9 city government?

Email your request to News@theGabber.com
By Cathy Salustri
City of Gulfport

9 : What did council woman Jennifer Salmon mean when she said a
higher tax rate wouldn't mean higher taxes for property owners? After all,
a higher rate means a bigger percentage of the money I pay, right?
A: When we asked Councilwoman Salmon, she gave us a short answer
and then elaborated. Here's her short answer:
When property values go down -as they have that means less tax money
for Gulfport. So, to keep the city's revenue steady, Councilwoman Salmon
says, the city should have a higher village rate. She says she wants to see
a new rate of 3.8399.
What does that mean? If your home was worth $100,000 last year but
$90,000 this year, you paid Gulfport $3,474.20 in taxes last year. With the
higher rate, you'd pay $3,455.91 this year. So, yes, a higher tax rate but
still lower taxes.
Of course, this means higher taxes for the people whose property values
went up last year, roughly 45% of the city. Councilwoman Salmon says that
35% of Gulfport properties would pay up to $53 more in taxes and seven
percent would pay between $54 and $200 more. The top three percent, 237
properties, would pay between $201 and $2531 more.
The majority 55% of property owners would see an average decrease

The officers also do welfare

her ex-husband called the

he couldn't reach her.
Officers also respond to the
dreaded "domestic call.
Domestics and traffic stops
are the two major killers, and
the most stressful part of
the job because you never
know what you're going to get
when you go to a domestic-
all you know is that there's

A Day in the Life of
the Gulfoort Police
By Cathy Salustri
printed a falsified letter
to the editor about the
Gulfport Police Department s
handling of a burglary, my
editor decided I should hang
out with the cops for a day
and see how they actually
handled the citizens. On
August 5, I met Officer Peter
Horning, who started my
. '
tour with an explanation
of the myriad of equipment
inside his patrol car.
Essentially, the front seat of
a police car is an office, car,
pursuitrehicle, andcommand
station. I squeeze myself
in around some sort of pole
holding the laptop in place:
but I'm not sure how Officer
Horning can fit himself with
to his uniform.
As we leave city hall, Officer
Horning tells me that patrol
work "is all about situational
awareness." He points out
that since officers patrol
the same city every day,
they learn how things are
supposed to look, like what
homes usually have their
windows opera or who is
usually at a certain bus stop
at different times of the day.
"You can believe that the
criminals are aware of their
surroundings- they know
exactly what there going to
do and how they're going to
do it," he says.
"We've 1 ad a few major
collisions here," he explains
as we pull into the entrance
for the Pasadena Yacht and
Country Club on Gulfport
Boulevard and pulls out his
radar gun and explains to me
his philosophy on speeding.
Every officer has a different
idea about when to stop
a speeding car. If you're
cruising down Gulfport
Boulevard at five miles over
the limit, odds are Horning
won t stop you. He doesn t

stop cars unless they go over
the speed limit by more than
15 miles per hour.
M11en we pull over a green
Grand Prix for speeding, I
realize there's no such things
a "routine" traffic stop. I
can't see anything about the
two people in the car but I
find myself recalling a video
of officers getting shot at a
routine traffic stop.
He approaches the car and
I see him push on the car's
trunk. When he returns to
the car he lets them go
with a warning he explains
to me that he did that for two
reasons: one, to make sure
the trunk wasn t open (and
didn't have someone inside
either trapped or waiting to
attack) and two, to leave a
handprint. That way, if he
gets shot or wounded and the
driver flees, his handprint
identifies the car as the one
How macabre. Officers go to
work every day and perform
their job not only knowing
they could get killed, but
preparing for it. That means
over and trust me, that s
been a lot of times- the officer
didn't just wonder if I might
attack; he was prepared for
me to try and kill him before
he even got to my window.
So when we pull over a
Dodge Stratus whose driver
has an invalid license and
people start to pile out of the
car, he shouts at them, "Stay
in the car! Stay in the car!
I know they're thinking he's
the world's biggest jerk, but
what they don't know is that
my heart pounding, ready to
courageously duck down and
use my phone to call 911 if
they start shooting.
This driver doesn t get away
with a warning. By law, he
must take an invalid driver s
license away from the driver;
he cannot allow her to drive
"It's not because Inqant to:1t s
because I have to. He can t

give her back her license but
he's only giving her one
ticket (for an invalid license)
instead of three. He does
not ticket her for producing
neither her registration nor
This business of routine
traffic stops is not for me,
clearly. I wonder if police
officers get that same
adrenaline after hundreds
of these routine stops. When
I ask him, he tells me to
stop calling them routine'
which kind of answers my

over and over. If we did the

flags and they're nothing;
some things bring up red
flags and they're something.
Some people try to run away.
"You ask people why'd you
run and they say, 'Well, I
was afraid.' Well, we're police
officers: you don t need to be
afraid- we're here to stop
people from getting hurt," he
As he cruises up and down
Gulfport, he stops and
patrols Clam Bayou on foot.
It is not a cool day; by the
time we get to the top of the
hill Ive sweated through
my department-ordered
pantsuit. He doesn't appear
to feel the heat through his
Kevlar vest and umform.
Knowing the macabre
scenarios going through
an officer's mind when he
stops you, what, I ask him,
should drivers do when
a cop pulls them over?
"Engine off, keys on the
dashboard, hands right
here," He illustrates with
his hands on the top of the
steering wheel. "I like to
see everybody's hmids."

her, and we all used to go to movies
together and hang out. I felt bad that
I didn't even know who she was. I've

I'm from outside Philadelphia and
so once I moved down here I haven't
been back to any other ones. But
when I went the people all looked
the same, I guess, because it wasn't
that far out since we graduated. I
went because I wanted to see my
friends, but most of my friends back
then were underclassmen. But I got
a chance to see some of my teachers
and that was really nice. I did see
my best friend when I went home.
She was in third grade when I was
in fifth and we're still best friends
today. I have another friend, Rose,
who I talk to once a month or so. But
most of my friends are really busy
and probably won't be able to get to

You 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 go1th ghhthe prl

ally helps to put people

more at ease and under-
stand that I have been
there and done that IVIY-
"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.
Sme, the initial con-
sultation is free, you re-
ally don't have any-thing
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
written professional pa-

age mm
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-

TTe firm also handles
Short Sale negotia-
tions, defense against
foreclosures, wills &
trusts, civil litigation
and loan modifica-
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.

Foster or Adopt a Greyhound
Meet Scoobv, a redfawn male, in foster care where they
say he loves getting and giving attention. Although
he is not cat friendly, he gets along well with smaller
(25+1bs) dogs, loves playing on his own with tovs or
with others. He also loves to go for car rides, which he
knows usually means he's headed to a meet and greet
with lots of pets and attention in store. Scooby is just
an extremely good-natured and pleasant bov, and we
know he will make a wonderful pet in his forever home. If you would like to
adopt Scooby or any of our many other greyhounds, please contact Greyhound

I u'Sic 7 Nlig~hts A WeekI

Gabber September 76 September 22, 2070

Billy's Stone Crab
WaterSront Restaurant
One CoHany Road, Tlerra Verde


VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Life offers
you one time challenge after another
this week. You can and will complete
your task, and what's more, you will
do this in record time -- because you
have to. You will be remarkably
efficient. Thank goodness you were
not given any more hours to spend on
these tasks -- they would have been
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You're
not content to react your way through
life. You want to be in charge of your
own progress, and that means taking
hold of your emotions. When you get
riled up, you will retreat and decide
whether it's the most effective mode
for the circumstances. If not, you'll
make a conscious effort to change
your internal settings.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). The
need to be understood is prevalent.
You want your loved ones to know
how difficult your life really is.
Then again, what you really want
is a little attention and affection,
which you should be able to attract
without sharing negative stories.
Besides, talking about the bad things
only makes them worse.
21). If you give someone a million-
dollar diamond thinking it is merely
a shiny rock from the dollar store,
the gift, though generous, is not
really a reflection of your generosity.
Similarly, you cannot fully love
unless your heart has been broken.
Only then can you know the risk
involved and the value at stake.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You
have plenty of work to do this week,
but it's not the only thing you should
spend your time on. You are a human,
with human needs -- needs that you
tend to neglect when big projects come
along. So don't forget to eat, drink
and be merry. (Yes, that last one is
actually one of your requirements for
survival.) AQUARIUS (Jan.
20-Feb. 18). You have much to give,

and everyone around you knows
this. Beware: Selfish people will be
deceptively attractive. The challenge
of capturing their attention is
exciting. However, even if you do win
this attention, you have really not
gained much. For now, it is best to
steer clear of beautiful and troubled
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You
make people feel important by giving
them what they want -- namely, your
focused attention. And you don't
require that this gift be immediately
returned. It's amazing to you how
few people are able to give the gift of
attention without demanding it back
within a few minutes -- a testament
to your generous spirit.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Some
degree of self-sacrifice is necessary.
Otherwise, nothing will be important
and you won't recognize life's gifts.
But an entire lifetime of self-sacrifice
is too much. Lately, you've chosen to
suffer needlessly. So this week, make
it a point to do what feels good to you.
That will pave the way for more good
to come.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You
like to make others happy. That's why
it's far too easy for you to abandon
your own needs and wishes in favor
of fulfilling another person's request,
suggestion or invitation. Make a date
with yourself and formalize it so that
you will know to keep the commitment
sacred when other offers come along.
GEMINI alley 21-June 21). You've
set yourself up for a difficult road --
not out of ignorance or stupidity, but
out of a deep sense of responsibility.
It just so happens that the things that
are worth doing aren't easy. This is
not always the case, but some weeks
are like this. Since you know that
you'll make a difference, the effort is
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Those
who suffer from a disorder called
Kliene-Levin syndrome, otherwise

known as Sleeping Beauty disease,
fall asleep for weeks at a time. In
contrast, you will feel so awake and
aware this week that some of your
history will seem like a distant
dream. You have reached a new level
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Scientists
are proving that genetic inheritance
is not strictly the luck of the draw.
Epigenetic studies suggest that some
major events of our lives affect the
structure of our DNA and can be
passed to future generations. You'll
make stellar choices this week and
exercise whatever control you have
over your own biology.
This Week's Birthdays: You
clue into the things that will bring
you lasting happiness -- which, it
turns out, are not "things" at all. It's
relationships that fulfill you the most.
Develop your bond with family and
friends. Also, a special relationship
takes shape and turns your weeks
into adventures. In October, a work
challenge forces you to engage your
talents and creativity. November
brings lucky travel. You'll stretch
your budget in December and then
catch up again in March. Invest in
yourself in January.

Fourth Annual
Landscape Tour
Lots of people would love to
incorporate more native plants in
their gardens for many good reasons,
including to benefit the environment,
invite birds and butterflies, reduce
maintenance tasks etc. But they're
not sure how to start and wonder:
Which plants are native and which
aren't? Which species are right for
my yard? How do Icreate landscape
design? One of the best ways to learn
is by example, and the Pinellas
Chapter of the Florida Native Plant
Society is providing an opportunity
for the public to see some successful
native landscapes with their fourth
annual Native Landscape Tour on
Saturday, September 25, 8 a.m. to 1
p.m. and Sunday, September 26, 11
a.m. to 4 p.m.
The tour happens over two days,
with south county homes open on
Saturday, north county homes on
Sunday. The south county tour
includes seven residential yards in
St. Petersburg. The north county tour
has six residential yards in Dunedin,
Belleair, Largo and Seminole.
Tickets for each tour are available
for a suggested donation of $5
($8 day of event). Registration is
available from now until the event

Remembenn 9/11
By Leigh Clifton
.. The Pinellas County
Sheriff Department and
South Pasadena Fire
Department and First
Responders were among
the group that gathered at
the City of South Pasadena
s memorial ceremony for
-- 5" in Galatea Park. Over 50
people joined the somber
ceremony, which started
shortly after 8:00 a.m.
After the Pinellas County
Sheriffs Honor Guard and
Color Guard opened the
ceremony, South Pasadena
Mayor Kathleen Roberts
welcomed the guests, with
Vice Mayor Larry Crowley
giving an invocation.
The Pinellas County Sheriff Honor Guard and Color Guard Several distinguished
stand at attention at the 911 Ceremony at Galatea Park in guests, including retired
South Pasadena last Saturday morning. St. Petersburg Fire Chief
Jay Knight spoke of the
bravery of those first responders, pausing to let the audience think of what the
New York firefighters, policemen and Port Authority workers had gone through
and their tremendous loss. At 8:36 a.m. the crowd held a moment of silence, to
commemorate the exact time the first plane hit the World Trade Center Tower.
As the silence ended, a US Coast Guard helicopter did a flyover of the park.
South Pasadena firefighter Paul Whitehead experienced the reality of 911
firsthand. He and his wife had been living outside the city, and he commuted
to work every day, passing right by the World Trade Center Towers every
"I had just driven by there an hour before the plane hit the first tower," he
said. "I worked in an office then, and my wife called me in a panic; she had heard
it on the TV and she was terrified. She was also pregnant with our first child. I
told her I was ok, but that night a twenty minute drive took me three hours to
get home. The commute turned into three hours, both ways. It was horrible. We
moved the next month to Florida, where I had some family. My son was born
ten weeks early; I'm sure it was due to all the stress from the attack."
The ceremony in South Pasadena ended with the singing of each of the
Armed Forces' hymns and America the Beautiful.

liar after accusing him of making
promises Musri said he didn't make.
American leaders and most American
citizens, too, have been moderate:
some supporting the mosque, others
opposing it, but defending the right
to do it. There has been no "violence
talk across America although some
harsh criticism. Jones' reaction to
the mosque is about as violent as has
been reported.
The corresponding Muslim world
reaction is not even in the same
league and is, to put it mildly, over-
the-top. Worse, I doubt that the
situation is retrievable. Some people
just need another excuse to act out.
The mosque project really didn't do
much for reconciliation, did it?
Of course, part of the problem is
that the anti-democratic, autocratic,
theocratic and intolerant Muslim
societies don't understand (or care)
that each individual in the U.S. has
a constitutional right to free speech,
press, religion and assembly. It
could be one person, 50 people, or
fifty million people speaking up or
acting out and the U.S. government
cannot stop it. We, individually or
collectively, can even burn our own
flag. And, those acts or speeches and
writings, may or may not represent
all the people or the government. It's
a hard concept to understand and
In the meantime, most Muslim
countries are totally intolerant of
other religions, have harsh penalties
for promoting other religions,
forbidding as in Saudi Arabia, any
other churches mush less Bibles and
symbols. There are varying degrees
of tolerance, of course, but at the
most tolerant level, no denigrating of
Islam and its prophet, Mohammed,
is permitted. Islam has, on the other
hand, no problem flourishing in
America, and, indeed, in much of the
western democratic nations. Kind of
a contrast, maybe?
Meanwhile, Jones shouldn't do
what he might. It's simply stupid
and meaningless to Americans and
inflaming to others. But, the fire has
started and it might be hard to put
out on either side.

other investors. Indonesian Muslim
leaders say burning the Koran is
a declaration of war because as
Afghanistan leader Hamid Karzai
said, "the Koran is imbedded in the
heart of every Muslim." Yeah, well,
so is the American flag imbedded in
American hearts, and it's burned by
Muslims whenever they feel like it.
Of course, this is "in your face",
including my statement, and none
of it solves anything. Of course,
everyone has a constitutional right -
in this country, but not those others
- to express themselves on just about
anything whether it's to burn the
Koran or the American flag. Jones
and his tiny band of merry followers
have the same rights as Imam Rauf
and his investors.
The real moderate in all of this
is Iman Muhammed Musri of
central Florida. He's volunteered
to intercede to try and change the
mosque plans. Jones called him a

Has the Fire Started?
By the time this is published,
that kooky pastor (is he really
an ordained minister or just
self appointed? Does anyone care?)
Terry Jones, up in Gainesville, will
have or have not burned a bunch of
Korans. By the time this is published,
the mosque/community center at
Ground Zero may or may not a project
still in progress.
Jones originally said he wouldn't
have a bonfire because Imam Feisal
Abdul Rauf had backed down about
building the mosque. Rauf said that
wasn't true. Jones said he'd burn the
Koran then. Rauf, earlier, had said
if his project didn't get completed
there could be dire consequences for

How Will They Tax
If what Bill Northrop presented as
facts were the whole truth I would
totally agree with him. He says "If
Congress does not renew the 2001
and 2003 tax cuts...personal income
taxes will go up for everyone". This is
true. What he does not say is that, if
they ARE renewed the impact on the
deficit would be horrendous.
This is the reason that they have a
time limit. Those that proposed them
were slick. They knew that if they
had been proposed to be indefinite
the projected crippling long term
effect on the deficit would have been
apparent. By establishing a time
limit the projected long term deficit
was not apparent.
The logic behind this was that if
taxes were cut prosperity would
flourish. And it would be apparent
that the cuts should be renewed. We
had 8 years of this policy. How did it
work for you?
So, renew and we are in trouble.
Don't renew and everyone takes a big
tax hit. What to do?
According to President Obama's
plan, which he proposed during the
Presidential campaign, tax cuts
would expire only on those making
more than $250,000. And the taxes
would only be on the income above
$250,000. So, by President Obama's
plan, for most people, income under
$250,000 would be taxed at current
levels. This would lessen the effect of
expiring tax cuts, yet not devastate
good to me. What do you think?
Ellen Levett

Dear Ms. Levett: The question is
not just whether there should be
a tax increase or not, but also the
need for certainty. Certainly a tax
increase, whether for the well-to-do
(akarich), or all the rest, will take
money out of the economy and give it
to the government. That might work,
or be helpful in reducing the annual
deficit and hence the total debt, if
government restrains its spending.
The pattern has been to use up all the
money provided from the taxpayers.
So, that question would be whether
the new money actually would be
used to reduce debt.
The other questions revolve around
whom to tax. Increasing taxes on
only the plus $200-250,000 might
loosen up the purse strings for
a large sector. Those getting the
tax increase, many of them small
businesses taxed through S-Corp

Local playwright Gil Pelroth,

Two New York producers who

"They liked what they saw," Pelroth

"They said, 'we'd like to take it off-

Pelroth, by his own admission, "was
very thrilled." Both parties signed
a contract earlier this month and
now, he says, the show has started
musical rehearsals in New York.
Once staging rehearsals begin later
this month, Pelroth says he will go to

"Ain't Retirement Grand" H

few officers to Gulfport's police force
and keep GEMS going for a while.
Imagine if Gulfport residents started
making public records requests
about how much money the county
spent on consultants, or how much
money the county spends on pens
and giveaways.
The county isn't the only one
who deserves focus. Consider
the Southwest Florida Water
Management District, or Swiftmud.
Not only do you pay taxes to the
state-appointed board that oversees
the entirety of southwest Florida's
water supplies, you pay a separate
tax to its local board, the Pinellas-
Anclote Basin Board. Last year,
that was a combined total of 71
cents per thousand dollars of your
home's taxable value. Not a lot until
you consider that, as a city, you're
paying them $1.6 million, more than
Gulfport's entire emergency services
Don't think much about the school
board? You should; between state
and local taxes, the schools get $8.39
for every thousand dollars of your
home's worth, over twice what you're
paying in city taxes. That's right:
Gulfport residents pay, in taxes,
twice the city's entire budget to the
schools. That makes me feel a lot
better about the pile of desks, chairs
and tables the school board threw
out when it re-did Boca Ciega High
School. We're really getting our $20
million dollars there.
Then there's the Pinellas Planning
Council, health department, EMS,
and the Juvenile Welfare Board.
Combined, they get about $1.45 of
every thousand bucks your home
is worth. Again, not a lot until you
consider that it totals about $3.4
million dollars of Gulfport money,
which is almost exactly what our
police department needs to survive.
Why not show up and raise hell -
politely, of ourseH at ssome of the

start: the county's cutting staff at

tr lartmngas r frs e'e ewhom

closing bathrooms at parks, and
dismantling its Environmental
Lands department. Why, then, does
the county have a $2.2 million public
relations budget? The county's
media relations and public outreach
department has a larger budget
that tw ce as big as Gulfport's Fire

I understand we're one-tenth of
the county's population, but I still
don't think people quite understand
how much of their money never
gets back to Gulfport. How many of
you attended a school board budget
meeting and asked them to cut
your taxes? Who of you spoke up at
a Swiftmud budget meeting? Who
here will attend the county budget
meeting next week?
Everyone, it seems, has an opinion
on how the city can cut taxes. But no
one seems to get that Gulfport is a
drop in your tax bill budget. I hear
people at council saying they had
a $20,000 tax bill and they want
services. What they may not realize
is that of that money, Gulfport gets
not quite $4,000 and the county and
other agencies get the rest Do those
men and women complain to the
School Board? Do they e-mail their
commission or demand a meeting?
It's a different world up there.
Commission Chairperson Karen Seel
Ken Welch, would never have spent
two months on chickens. They're
big city up there, surrounded by old
money and old buildings. They are
insulated from the public, usually
by nicely-appointed reception areas.
And because of that, they get away
with a lot. It's harder to navigate
their bureaucracy. We're just a dot
On their map, a city that has to send
councilmembers and a city manager
to fight for every dime it gets.
Pinellas County will have its final
budget hearing at 6:30 Tuesday night.
While the school board meetings
have passed, it's not too late for the
county one. While only part of your
$34 million goes to the county, it's
still a lot of money. Don't you think
you deserve something for it?

Follow the (Real) Money
It's budget time in the city of
Gulfport again, and I'd like to
ask you a question:
How much do you care? I don't mean
about the Gulfport budget; Gulfport
is one miniscule part of the budget
puzzle, but it receives the lion's
share of the public's attention. The
folks who religiously attend council
meetings are excellent motivators for
not only city council but city staff to
act responsibly; I wish they brought
that passion to the county level.
Granted, the city is the most
localized form of government and
also the most accessible, so it makes
sense that people focus on it. It's
much easier to walk over to city hall
after a long day of work than it is to
drive to Clearwater and sit through
the bureaucratic nightmare that
is the county commission or school
board. But that's what the county
is counting on; county and state
agencies get most of your money
with none of the accountability.
You paid the county and state over
$34 million in property taxes every
year. That's over three times the
amount you paid the city of Gulfport.
On every thousand dollars of your
home's taxable value, less than $4
went to Gulfport, while about $15
went to Pinellas county and state
While Gulfport residents paid the
city 3.47 mils (or dollars per thousand
of the property's taxable value) last
year, they paid Pinellas County
4.81, a citywide total of roughly $1.7
That's why I watch the city
struggle with what will amount to
a penny or two for each resident
and wish that Gulfportians would
march over to the county and
demand the same accountability
from them. Commissioners make

Are Trusts Only for
the Super-Rich?
While it is true that you should have
a fair amount of assets before you
consider setting up a trust, a trust is
no longer the province of the "super-
rich. .
Simply stated, a trust is a legal
document that makes it possible for
you to put aside some of your money
and direct how it will be used upon
your death or in some form of trust,
while you're alive. A trust may also
ease your tax bite.
A trust generally offers several
advantages: among them, the assets
don't have to go through probate,
which saves time and money.
Additionally you may be able to
. '
maintain control over the trust assets
while you're alive and capable; sick
and incapable; or as part of an estate
plan at your death,

Many individuals and families
have found that trusts offer a
number of interesting financial
planning opportunities. Even where
your estate plan calls for all the
assets of the first-to-die spouse to
pass to the surviving spouse under
the unlimited marital estate tax
deduction, significant estate tax may
be due on the death of the surviving
spouse. Proper use of carefully
drafted non-marital trusts for the
benefit of the surviving spouse and/
or children may keep these assets
out of the surviving spouse's estate
and reduce the overall tax bite on
the estate plan.
So-called "living trusts" have become
very popular with those interested
In avoiding the expense, delay and
publicity of probate; while allowing
the grantor to maintain control over
the trust assets during his or her
lifetime, if capable and competent.
The type of trust you use depends
on your personal situation and
the advice you receive from a legal
expert. Since there are many types
of trusts, only a complete evaluation
of your family's needs will determine
which trust should be used.

Over 1000 people turned out last Saturday for the 7th Annual Aids Walk St.
Petersburg. According to Marketing Coordinator Anthony Burros, the event
raised more than $60,000 to date, with more contributions still coming in. Over
700 men, women, and children participated in the Walk, which was rained out
last year.
"We were so lucky with the weather this year," Burros said. We made an
effort to reach out to youth this year an we were thrilled that we has a lot more
were involved this year. Admiral F.I.*.*.i-.;ul's Color Guard presented arms at the
ceremony; it was beautiful. Our commercial this year was written and produced
by a teenager from Suncoast Hospice and numerous high schools participated
as well. Of course, Gulfport was a huge part of the walk with lots of folks from
there walking too. We've gotten a lot of positive feedback. All in all, it was a
complete success."

Stetson-ite Erin Okuno hands her boyfriend Dan Nelson a string of caution tape she pulled
out of the mud. The couple lives in Redington Shores.

By 11 a.m. Saturday morning, an eager pack of law students had already
collected several bags of trash from Clam Bayou's main waterway on the
Gulfport side. By 11:30 a second group launched kayaks and paddled into the
smaller canals and creeks, collecting everything from plastic bags to car tires.
The group used kayaks from Kayak Nature Adventures and arranged the
cleanup as part of the students' pro-bono work they must complete every year.
While about 20 students took to the water, another 20 went through Clam
Bayou's Gulfport land side on foot and collected trash. One student found a bay
squirrel when it ran up her leg, which she brought to a local rescue.
Students along the waterway expressed surprise at the number of golf balls
and plastic bags they pulled from the Bayou. When everyone returned to shore
for lunch, the students pooled their golf balls together, making a tidy pile
several inches high and a couple of feet wide.
In addition to Kayak Nature Adventure's donation, O111...bly's also donated
and the Gulfport Chamber of Commerce sent a volunteer as well. Allison
Warner, a sophomore at Boca Ciega High who divides her time between
working at Pia's and the high school volleyball team, paddled the Bayou on a
stand-up paddleboard and helped point novice paddlers in the right direction.

pull in your bathroom. This is best
accomplished by scooting your scale,
inch by inch, across the floor with your
foot, weighing yourself at every point
until you find the spot that gives you
the lowest reading.
Scale scooting is hard on your floor
covering, but it's good for your body.
When performed properly, it tones
and strengthens the muscles of your
toes and inner thighs. Leaning
against a countertop or hanging on to
a towel rack while weighing is a smart
precautionary measure. Not only does
it prevent personal injury in the event
that an unflattering reading causes
you to faint, it's also a time-honored
method of lowering the scale's readout
by a good 10 to 15 pounds.
Work with your scale to determine
your ideal weighing stance. Some
scales offer a more favorable reading
when you stand on one foot, while
others work better if you stand
on tiptoe. If you're coordinated,
you might try jumping up and down
on your scale while weighing. This
produces a wide range of numerical
readings from which to choose.

Feel free to tamper with the internal
mechanism of your scale. By setting
it back five or 10 pounds, you'll get a
reading that more accurately reflects
your desired weight.
Unless you're a professional athlete,
don't make the mistake of stepping on
a scale that simultaneously measures
your weight and your body fat.
People who use these technological
torture devices may require years
of professional counseling to recover
from the resulting emotional trauma.
If you're serious about weighing less,
pack up your scale and take it to a
tall building. Standing on your scale
in a rapidly descending elevator will
create the illusion of a 2- to 3-pound
weight loss.
Better yet, pack up your scale and
take it to Denver. You'llbe even lighter
at a higher altitude.
If all else fails, you can weigh yourself
in kilograms. Since one kilogram
equals roughly 2.2 pounds, you'll feel
much better knowing that your metric
weight is less than half your weight in
If you are not able to achieve your
desired weight after performing a
variety of scale-scamming maneuvers,
your scale is obviously defective. At
this point, your best bet is to dispose
of it and replace it with a nice toaster

Weighing in Can
Bring You Down
Like most Americans, I have
accumulated an assortment of
household gadgets, electronic doo-
dads and appliances over the years. I
appreciate the fact that most of them
make my life far easier than it might
be otherwise.
I enjoy using these modern marvels of
technology, with the notable exception
of my bathroom scale. It has caused
me more anguish than my vacuum
cleaner, my electric can opener and
my microwave oven combined.
I'm pretty sure that most folks feel
the same way. At one time or another,
we've all been disappointed, surprised
or even horrified by the numbers
offered up to us by our bathroom
Many of us are entirely too concerned
about the numbers displayed on our
scales, and we spend far too much
time and energy trying to lower them
the old-fashioned way. There's really
no need to exercise to the point of
collapse or subsist on starvation
rations to achieve a favorable reading
on your bathroom scale. You can
alter the number reflecting your
weight without so much as breaking
a sweat. All you have to do is develop
a strategy to ensure that the number
displayed on your scale represents
your desired weight, regardless of
how much it deviates from your actual
You can accomplish this feat in
several ways. First, you must rid
yourself of any excess baggage before
you even think about weighing in.
Trim your nails, shave unwanted
body hair, exfoliate your face, and
empty your bladder. Remove all
personal accessories and appliances,
including jewelry, hair bows, hearing
aids and dentures.
If you wear glasses, it's probably
wise to remove them, as well. You're
better off not seeing the numbers on
the scale, anyway.
Don't weigh yourself while you're wet,

Danisha Pate watched the large screen on the wall behind her as the International Space
Station astronauts answer her question. She was one of fifteen students chosen from area
schools to speak to the astronauts during a live satellite hookup at the Science Center of
Pinellas last Thursday morning.
Over 350 students, teachers, journalists and dignitaries crowded into
the Science Center ofPinellas' auditorium last Thursday morning to wit-
ness history as sixteen lucky area students got to make the ultimate long
distance call; it was the International Space Station answering.
Engineered by Science Center Director Joe Cuenco, the call to the
Space Station was a remarkable chance for area students to connect
with real astronauts via satellite. Fifteen students were chosen to ask
questions of Astronauts Doug Wheelock, Tracy Caldwell Dyson, and
Shannon Walker. The students researched NASA's satellite network to
complete lessons in robotics and marine science in order to ask questions
about them. NASA astronaut Robert Springer, in full NASA uniform,
was on hand at the center to speak with the students and answer some
questions. Then they all piled into the hall to hear the Space Station
astronauts answer questions ranging from how the station is powered,
whether or not the oil spill was visible from space, how the experiments
are conducted, whether or not one can exercise in space and if they can
hear the sonic boom on entry and re-entry procedures.
The kid's faces were transfixed on a large screen in the front and a
smaller TV down below as the astronauts listened, and then answered
each student's question. Even with the minor delay, the interaction was
spontaneous; the astronauts hovered in zero gravity while talking and
would occasionally move around in the cabin.
Tenth grade Danisha Pate asked them to describe the Earth; she was
fascinated by the whole idea of space.
"To be able to do this, not even in person and them being in outer space
for that matter floating around was just absolutely phenomenal," she
The astronauts were gracious and seemed to be having as much fun
as the kids. As the call was ending, the three of them did a series of flips
and rolls that made the audience laugh.
Seated in the audience beside St. Petersburg Mayor Bill Foster was
astronaut Bill Shepherd, the first commander of the International Space
Station. He answered questions from the crowd and media after the as-
tronauts signed off of the 20 minute call. Mayor Foster was all smiles and
called the call "fantastic for the kids."

she was ready to give up on the goofy, lovable dog. She was
told that if it had not invaded the lungs, Alexander could
have chemotherapy, which might give him eight months to a
year. But first the affected leg would have to be amputated.
For a huge dog like a Great Dane, Shannon wasn't sure how
well he could adapt. But she immediately read up on the
research. Interestingly, dogs of any size are able to quickly
adapt to becoming a "tripawd".
"I knew if we caught this early, he might have a chance.
It wasn't in his lungs, so we went for the surgery. He's done
really well and has learned to balance himself," Shannon
said gratefully.
Then came chemotherapy; four rounds so far.
"There's a ton of blood monitoring and he can't have it
if his counts are too low. That happened once. But he's
done amazingly well, with little side effects. He's eating
normally. The treatment takes about 20 minutes on an IT
drip and the vet will keep him for a few hours to monitor
him. He gets to play with the nurses; he eats up all the
Shannon said the chemo kills seven days out; after a week
it starts destroying the cancer cells. Fingers crossed, he has
two more treatments to go.
During her online research, Shannon found www.
Tripawds.com, a support website for people whose dogs
have contracted this form of cancer. She said it has helped
her so much to read other people's stories, especially the
triumphant ones. One blog contributor wrote that people
told her that so much money paid for medical treatment is

a waste, because it s just a dog. Shannon (and most dog
and cat owners) couldn't disagree more.
Dog people know that it s much more than that; these
are our "fur children" and thev look to us for love and care.
They give us all unconditional love; they deserve to be
taken care of.

Walking Salads From Strawberries
By Cathy Salustri

At Gulfport's Tuesday
. morning Fresh Market,
walking salads are
the order of the day.
One vendor, Parke
Farms, offers passers-
by a walking salad. The
vegetables, grown on
One acre of hydroponic
farm, range from grape
tomatoes to squash. The
farmer, Gary Parke, is
part of the Parkesdale
Farms, known for their
strawberries. A few years
ago, Mr. Parke decided to give hydroponics a try. He took one acre of the family
farm and devoted it to growing hydroponic vegetables.
While no criteria exist to identify hydroponics as organic, Mr. Parke uses no
pesticides on his crops. His crops supplement but do not replace the existing
produce vendor at the Fresh Market.
These vegetables represent a trend towards locavorism, or eating locally.
Locavores look for food grown close to home (within 100 miles) to minimize
the impact of their diets on oil dependency, air pollution, global warming, and
pesticide use, according to Locavores.com, a San Francisco-based group.
"It's a good fit for those that want local and organic produce," Daniel Hodge
of the Gulfport Merchant's Association said of Parke Hydro. The Market also
offers local honey, hand-made soaps, and fresh breads and cheeses.
Because of the hydroponics process, Mr. Park's one acre isn't constrained
by growing seasons, so hydroponic gardening produces a myriad of vegetables
all year long. People seeking local produce will see other traditional farms
producing starting in October or early November. The Gabber has a short list
of these farms and where you can buy locally-produced organic or pesticide-
free food below.

Politicians Sling
Social Security Mud

As we move toward the
November elections, politicians will
be slinging mud at each other -- and
some of the splatter will stick to the
voters. Social Security often provides
some of the goop that politicos use
to make their mud balls. I observed
an example of this during the recent
primaries in my home state. Two
democratic contenders for the U.S.
Senate plastered each other (and the
airwaves) with enough misleading
muck about Social Security to confuse
every voter in the state.
My readers can expect more of
the same on a national level as we
approach the fall election season.
I hope that by setting the record
straight about the misleading
mudslinging in my state, I'11help you
be better equipped to deal with at
least some of the gobbledygook you'll
hear and read in your neck of the
woods in the coming months.
In my state's primary, we had
candidate A -- let's call him Mac
Muddy -- and candidate B, whom I'll
call Mark Murky. I've changed the
names because of some unpleasant
experiences I've had in the past
dealing with lawyers representing
candidates whom I've criticized for
stretching the truth. They have big
campaign war chests they can use to
threaten lawsuits. I have a modest
civil service pension!

Muddy and Murky each ran negative
ads against the other using Social
Security as a weapon. Those attacks
took the form of traditional TV and
newspaper ads, but also as phone
calls. Here are abridged excerpts of
two calls my wife and I received at
home during the campaign.
Phone call from Muddy's campaign:
"Hi, I'm Sen. Mac Muddy. Do you
know that when my opponent, Mark
Murky, was in Congress, he once
voted to privatize Social Security?
If we had let Murky and his cohorts
privatize Social Security and put the
program in the hands of those greedy
Wall Street brokers, we'd all be in a
big mess today. So don't vote for Mr.
Murky. If you do, you'll lose your
Social Security to the money mongers
on Wall Street."
Phone call from Murky's campaign:
"Hi, I'm Mark Murky. Do you know
that my opponent, Mac Muddy, voted
to reduce Social Security cost of
living increases to seniors? This is an
absolute disgrace. Muddy obviously
doesn't care about the livelihood of
the wonderful senior citizens who
make up the greatest generation
of Americans. So don't send Mac
Muddy back to the Senate. Don't
give him the chance to cut grandma's
Social Security check even more than
he's tried to do in the past."
Unfortunately, most citizens of my
state were terribly confused by these
allegations. Maybe you are, too. So,
let's wipe away the mud and learn
the truth.
Sen. Muddy said that his opponent
Remember, this was a democratic
primary, and linking the phrase
. ,,
privatize Social Security to your
opponent is almost as bad as labeling
him a pornography addict!
Here's what really happened.
During the 1990s, President Clinton
baffled his Republican opponents
who had introduced legislation to
. .
privatize Social Security by offering
. .
his own privatization plan. Unlike
the Republican plan that did call for
turning over a large chunk of Social
Security to Wall Street, Clinton's

"privatization" plan kept the current
Social Security program in place,
but it gave taxpayers the option of
plan, similar to the hugely successful
"Thrift Savings Plan" available to
federal government employees.
Former Congressman Murky
did vote for this plan, along with
many other Democrats and some
Republicans. However, all these
legislative plans got swept under
the rug during the Monica Lewinsky
debacle and the subsequent
impeachment proceedings, so nothing
came of them. But the point is that
Congressman Murky did not vote to
"privatize Social Security." He voted
for a bill that would have augmented
the current Social Security system
with private account investments.
Former Congressman Murky's
negative ad said that Sen. Muddy had
voted to cut cost of living increases
for senior citizens. Here's what really
happened. Every year, Social Security
recipients get an automatic cost of
Eving raise that matches the inflation
rate. If inflation goes up 5 percent one
year, Social Security beneficiaries
get a 5 percent raise the next year.
But in 2009 -- for the first time in
more than 30 years -- there was no
measurable inflation. So, there was
no cost of living increase for Social
Security recipients in 2010.
But that didn't stop several members
of Congress from introducing
legislation pandering to senior
citizens that would have granted
them a Social Security increase,
even though the law said none was
due. Sen. Muddy, along with the
vast majority of fiscally responsible
members of Congress, voted the
measure down. He did not vote to
'reduce cost of living raises for senior
. .
citizens." He voted to keep them from
getting a pork barrel increase they
were not due and that could not be
justified during recessionary times.
Shame on these two politicians for
trying to mislead the voters. And
shame on voters for falling for this
stuff, which is why negative ads
