Gulfport Asked to
Support Fundamen-
tal Schools
Former Gulfport Elementary prin-
cipal Lisa Grant and two other
representatives spoke to the city
council about proposed changes to
Gulfport Elementary and Boca Cie-
ga High School. The school board
proposes changing Gulfport El-
ementary to a fundamental elemen-
tary school. The school board also
proposes changing a portion of Boca
Ciega High School to a fundamen-
tal school.
If the school board makes the
changes, Boca Ciega High School
will still accept students into a non-
fundamental program, but Gulfport
Elementary will become an exclu-
sively fundamental school.
Councilwoman Jennifer Salmon
asked council to sign a letter endors-
ing their support for the changes.
Councilman Sam Henderson said
he wouldn't sign the letter, saying
there were things about the program
he found fundamentally flawed, de-
spite his daughter's attendance in a
fundamental program.

Green Building
GULFPORT- After debate about en-
ergy savings and concerns over the
city's financial ability to meet con-
servation goals, city council voted to
move forward on the conservation
goals in the proposed Green Building
"These are goals to formalize what
we're going to attempt to accomplish
on your behalf," City Manager Jim
O'Reilly told council.
The city's Planning and Zoning de-
partment will review the ordinance
before the city council votes on it.

Hybrid Police Vehicle
GULFPORT- City council voted to
allow the police department to pur-
chase a hybrid vehicle. Police Chief
Rob Vincent said the vehicle would
not be used for pursuit. The vehicle
will cost $27,000 and was not includ-
ed in the city's approved budget. A
memo to council explained that the
city would use contraband forfeiture
and federal funds to purchase the ve-

Chief Vincent volunteered that a
non-hybrid versions of the car would
cost roughly $8,000 less and that,
even with cost savings, the hybrid
would still cost the city roughly
$4,000 over the life of the car, or
$800 per year over five years.
"I was under the impression that
the $800 a year is worth the positive
impact it would have unmaking the
statement that we're trying to be
environmentally responsible," Chief
Vincent said.
Council voted unanimously to pur-
chase a hybrid vehicle.

Jeri Reed Receives
Spirit of Gulfport Award
"The Spirit of Gulfport award is
something that is not easily earned,"
Mayor Mike Yakes told Jeri Reed as
he presented her with the Spirit of
Gulfport award. The council pre-
sented Ms. Reed with the award for
her work with So49.
In addition to the award, the mayor
presented Ms. Reed with the key to
the city.

from front page
"Because of the fundamental program
and the guidelines that I think are
flawed and how the guidelines would
affect a lot of people in Gulfport, I
can't be signatory to that letter,"
Councilman Henderson said.
"I don't think that it's part of the
city council's responsibility to tell the
school board what to do; i think we
would be a little upset if the school
board came here and told us how to
run the city," Vice-Mayor King said.
Councilman Hastings also said he
would not sign the letter, saying he
didn't know if a lot of things in the
letter Councilman Salmon asked the
city to sign had proven facts.
"No child is left behind, but they're
left in a different environment," May-
or Mike Yakes added.

Senior Property
Tax Exemption
GULFPORT- Senior citizens who own
property in Gulfport could see an ad-
ditional tax savings in coming years.
The city approved an ordinance that
would give property owners age 65
and over an additional $25,000 ex-
emption on their property taxes.
City staff estimates this will result
in almost $5,000 in property tax sav-
ings for Gulfport seniors. The ordi-
nance must pass a second reading
before it becomes law.
I'm just delighted that we're doing
this," Councilwoman Jennifer Salm-
on said before council unanimously
passed the exemption.

A Howling Good Time!
Dear Editor: I took my 86 year
old mom down to the Rec Center on
Saturday night to volunteer for the
Halloween Bash. I think she had as
much fun as the kids!
Marivel and the entire recreation
staff put on one terrific time for the
kids and community. They deserve
a lot of credit for their hard work.
There were games, a haunted house,
a snack shack and even a boo room
for the younger visitors. Judging by
the many "thank you's" that we heard
from parents and children, their good
works did not go unnoticed.
So once again, "Kudos" to the
recreation staff for providing a fun and
safe Halloween for the community.
Great job. Oh, and by the way, Mom
wants to know if she can come back
next year, even though she got into
the candy?

An Embarrassment or has
"Mean City Syndrome"
Dear Editor: I attended the Gulfport
City Council Meeting on November
2, 2010. During the Public Session
two of our citizens voiced their
"embarrassment" and slanderous,
derogatory and contemptuous
comments specifically aimed at two
of our Council Members.
If these residents (I can not call them
gentlemen) are "embarrassed" by the
actions or inactions of the Council

and how these two residents perceive
them, I would encourage them to
watch the video of the meeting. Their
behavior and comments they made
can be construed as embarrassing.
To allege someone needs "...to get
a motel..." because they are seen
together is over the edge. I am
quite sure that the intent of "Public
Session" is not to give residents three
minutes to bully, antagonize, ridicule
and belittle our Council members.
As for party affiliations yes, city
council is a non-partisan position.
Does that mean your council
members are not allowed to speak or
be seen with any official with a party
affiliation? That is a bit overboard
and extreme, don't you think?
I have a party affiliation, yet I email,
phone and meet with elected officials
of different parties. Why? Because
when I am involved with a topic that
needs to be addressed, I will speak
to any and every person that may
be able to affect some assistance or
They also need to consider that
although the first amendment allows
for freedom of speech, the Florida
Supreme Court recently "...refused
to take an appeal from a lower
court ruling that says the public
has no right to speak at meetings of
government bodies..." ('Open meeting'
can deny comment, top court agrees"
- St. Petersburg Times October 27,
2010). In essence, the public session
could actually go away and it would
not be a problem, especially if it
continues to be used as a format for
personal attacks.

Dark Skies and Golf Cart Discussions Will Continue
GULFPORT-At the October 28 workshop, city council discussed changing light-
ing and allowing golf carts on city streets.
Councilman Sam Henderson wants to reduce noise pollution by installing a
different type of lighting throughout the city. The type of lighting he suggested
would illuminate the city's streets and walks but not the skies.
Councilman David Hastings objected to the Dark Skies initiative, citing ex-
penses as well as safety issues. Councilwoman Jennifer Salmon and Vice-Mayor
Michele King assured Councilman Hastings that he would not have to light his
property less.
Council also discussed Bonnie Bray's request to allow unregistered golf carts on
Gulfport streets. Currently only golf carts registered with the state can operate
on public roadways. To register, golf carts must have certain safety equipment
such as lights, seatbelts, and mirrors.
City council will look at both these issues again in a future meeting. The city
attorney will give an opinion on liability for golf cart usage, and city staff will re-
work language in the Dark Skies ordinance and possibly perform a sample test.

Acting City Manager
Changes in Gulfport
City council proposed a change to
the charter that would allow the city
manager or council to appoint the
head of the police or fire departments
as the acting city manager.
Currently the city charter prohibits
the head of a public safety depart-
ment from acting as city manager.

Senior Homestead
Gulfport City Council agreed to
vote on whether or not to give senior
citizens an additional tax exemption.
Councilwoman Jennifer Salmon sug-
gested this ordinance at a council
It should only cost slightly more than
$4,000 to do this, city staff said.
"It would kind of mean-spirited, I
would think, not to," Vice-Mayor Mi-
chele King said. Vice-Mayor King op-
posed this exemption in earlier dis-

Harassment of Wildlife
GULFPORT- In response to coun-
cilman Sam Henderson's concerns
about people harming local ducks and
other wildlife, city staff re-worded an
ordinance to allow officers to ticket
people for indiscretions involving
offenses against animals that don't
reach the level of "animal cruelty."
Tickets will start at $93 if council
approves this at a future meeting.

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
ensure consistency and accuracy.
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.

Changes to How Gulfport Can Buy and Sell Land
Tuesday night Gulfport's city council met for the second and final workshop deal-
ing with proposed changes to the city charter. The discussion centered around
changes to Section 103 of the city's charter, which deals with how the city can
buy and sell property.
Changes to this section impact beach, parks and recreational areas as well as
beach accesses and city government facilities used for administration or sup-
port. It also includes submerged lands. Debate Tuesday night centered around
whether or not the city needed to include a list of properties that it could not sell
without a voter referendum.
Vice-Mayor Michele King pointed out that the city could not sell any lands for
which it received grant monies.
Councilwoman Jennifer Salmon suggested that the city list the specific proper-
ties that fall under this section.
"What you're doing is wrong for the future," the vice-mayor told Councilwoman
Jennifer Salmon, who said she wanted to protect the land for the future.
These changes, if approved by a majority vote at a city council meeting, must
also pass a voter referendum.

Gulfport Garden
^ e Bird Club
On November 11 there will be
a tour of some home gardens in
Gulfport. It will be necessary to
drive so plan to meet at 10 a.m. in
the Gulfport Library parking lot
for carpooling and to receive a map
listing addresses and directions.
Parking is also available at the
Senior Center, but there is more
room at the Library so that will be
the starting point.
There are five or six homes on the
tour including an organic garden,
a wild animal preserve as well as
other landscapes and amenities
that have been created here in our
little town. Refreshments will be
served at the last home.
There is no charge for club
members. Guests are $5 which will
include a one-year membership in
the Gulfport Garden Club.
It has been a while since the club
has had a garden tour so you will
not want to miss this.

Th Gab Whtae th mos imotn issue tha
infune how you voe today6?

Joe Boyle, St. Pete: "I think the
government is going in the wrong
direction. I don't appreciate the
government telling me what I have to
do. I'm a veteran; I was in during the
early 70's and the Vietnam era. I am
very aware that people died so that I
could vote today. I always have voted,
but I have friends who don't think
that voting affects them. They just
don't vote because they think that
the issues are bigger than they are
and they somehow won't be involved.
But they don't realize that sooner or
later, where this country is going is
definitely going to affect them."
. .

Tonilynn Sharpe, St. Pete: "I voted
because it's the right thing to do. My
biggest issue is with the Governor's
race; who's going to run the state?
It's very important because it's in our
backyard. Change will only take place
if you get involved but it won't happen
if people don't get engaged and follow
the issues. The state of our economy is
a mess. I voted for Alex Sink because
I think she has integrity and a solid
background. There's no question
about her integrity or intentions. I'm
a Democrat, but I don't always vote
for the party. I actually wish there
was a no party system. I think the
two-party system breeds fear and
bickering; it feeds the negativity and
negative campaigns. I give my free
time as a volunteer to our community
and I care about what happens to it.
I'm voting to put people in office that
will help our community and listen to
our needs."

Richard Keenan, Gulfport: "The
biggest issue for me is the jobless
rate, the unemployment issue. I'm
going to vote more Republicans in
office. I feel the Democrats are doing
an awful job, so I want to try and elect
more Republicans. I think they will
hopefully stand for less government
and be better advocates for small
businesses. Small businesses are
the key to getting the economy back
on track. They get people back to
work. Right now, there's too many
regulations, too much red tape and
too many hoops a small business
has to jump through to get up and
running. It makes it hard for them to

Kristen Reyes, Gulfport: "The
education issue is the biggest reason
I voted today. We have a daughter
who is in kindergarten; we've been
home-schooling her. But now both
my husband and I are going back to
school and we will need to put her
in public school, which I really don't
want to do. But she has a really good
teacher at Bear Creek, so I feel a
little better about it."

Owen Pach is known for his sand
mold blown designs and for his
sculptural use of glass entwined with
other natural elements. Although

the airport collection spans the last
five years of his glass imaginings.
One piece, entitled "Graphikos," was
completed in the last three months.
Full color panels detailing Pach's
love for all things glass along with
video of the man in action provide
an entertaining back-drop to this

Our Little Red-headed Buddy
She was maybe 5 weeks old, just walking along
the dirt road in Hernando County. Some kind folks
picked her up but were unable to keep her so off to
the pound she went. Fortunately, a lonely human
had been going to the various shelters for a few
weeks looking for a little furry companion, it was
the day before Thanksgiving and even though the
shelter was under quarantine for rabies, her first
human managed to talk them into letting her adopt
her. That was the beginning of her journey and
what a ride it was.
She hung out in a glassblowing studio for a few years being the greeter in
the alley for artwalks. Then she moved into a beautiful home with a beautiful
human who loved her so much. She still visited the glass shop, but went home
to air conditioned comfort, a comfortable bed, treats, toys, but most of all lots
of love hugs and kisses. She went for rides in the car, never knowing if she was
going to visit grandma, go for ice cream or maybe camping and boating for the
She had a comfy leather bench right in the front window and enjoyed speaking
to all her friends on their daily walks. In her younger days, she loved to run
past her mommies at the front door and escape to the golf course to play in the
sprinklers or trap the guard in his gatehouse. She always came back home but
sometimes had to stay downstairs 'cause she found something to roll in. It
never lasted long.
Last year we brought a small flat-faced little dog home for her to train for
them. At first he just wanted to play and pull her long ears and she was always
so very patient with him, but when she growled-that was it. He now sits in
the window and has taken over her watch. She would be proud.
That was 14 years ago and today we had to make a decision. Quality of life
was the only choice-the strength and power to know and do is equal to all the
unconditional love and joy that she gave us for all these years.

ItStoroscoDe Guide

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You
have strong planning abilities. You
can actually see into the future. One
of your projects is particularly dear to
you these days. Jot down a possible
route for your life that is centered on
the happy completion of this project.
If you devoted yourself to this plan,
what would your life look like in six
21). Though pressure can feel
uncomfortable, ultimately, a sense of
urgency can be a good thing. Without a
deadline, you couldvacillate endlessly
between two or three interesting
choices. Instead, circumstances will
force your hand. You'll make your
choice and be on your way to the next
great adventure.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You
make few requirements of your work.
You understand that it's important
to do a job well, regardless of what
it is. So you approach sweeping the
floor with the same attention as you
do meeting a star client. Your stellar
attitude will open all kinds of lucrative
doors for you this week.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You
are constantly aware of how your
actions affect others. That's why you
do your best to be polite whether
engaged in traffic, conversation,
domestic co-existence, business or
any relationship at all. And whenever
you suspect that your actions had an
ill effect on someone, you rectify the
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You
are helpful, but also careful not to
be so attentive that you rob others of
the self-esteem they would gain from
completing their own work, making
their own decisions and handling
their own problems. You will focus
on doing what it takes to make an
important improvement for your own
personal satisfaction.
ARIES (March 21-April 19).
There are times when you should

push yourself to be more generous
and selfless. But right now, do the
opposite. You need to take care of
yourself. Give only what you feel
good about giving. Of course you
should help others, but not if it comes
at your own emotional expense.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Rack
up a few hours of manual labor. It
will be amazing what you garner
from repetitious work. Sorting, filing,
folding and weeding are examples
of the kinds of tasks that will keep
your hands busy while giving your
mind an escape hatch. The effort will
enhance your creativity and sharpen
your intuition.
GEMINI (1 I.iy 21-June 21). It seems
like everyone is asking you to nail
down a commitment, which includes
hard dates and times. The requests
might be bothersome, but there's
a good reason for them. Knowing
what you need to do is not enough.
Scheduling it is the key. Goals are
not goals without a deadline.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). You'll
go on a quest through your own
imagination, which is alight with
pictures, music and wishes. And
though this would be enough for some
people, unless you can make your
visions real -- at least to the extent
that they can be real -- the dream
means nothing to you. Tangible
results will keep you motivated.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You don't
have to be a physicist to gain new
insights into the way the universe
works. No one in the entire galaxy
sees things the way you do. Your
view is original and meaningful and
worthy of being shared. This week
you voice your opinions and tell your
side of the story. Your audience will
be riveted.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Get
plenty of rest this week. Sleep is a
necessary part of maintaining your
energy and high spirits. And when
things get hectic, it's also a welcome


the Gabr. vr husa ic 98

escape from the waking world. When
you have the right amount of REM
time, your subconscious will figure
out what your conscious mind could
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You'll deal
with a wide variety of personalities.
You may need to scoot your own
personal preferences to the side
while you tend to the group agenda.
But that doesn't mean you have to
get rid of them for good. Be patient
and aware, and you'll know when
the timing is perfect to display your
opinions, values and beliefs
This Week's Birthdays: You are
a model of self-responsibility and
power. Many will look up to you,
and before the end of December,
you'll be given a leadership position.
Your family's needs will require
you to change your priorities and
your schedule. November, February
and July bring the best financial
opportunities, and you can afford to
take more risks during those times.
Throughout 2011, your happiness is
augmented by whimsical interactions
with friends and your commitment to
romance and adventure.

Gulfport City Council Meeting

Public Comment & Council Quotes

November 2nd Gulfport Council Meeting
"If you say that fundamental is the best choice,
why aren't all schools fundamental? I think when
I grew up, all the schools were fundamental we
didn't call them that."-Councilman David Hastings,
asking representatives from the Pinellas County School
Board about their intentions about Gulfport Elemen-

"I believe all parents love their children. I don't
believe all parents can sign that contract. I was
one of eight children; my mother always had a
baby- there was no way she could have signed that
contract, especially eight times." -Vice-Mayor Mi-
chele King, about challenges local parents might face if
Gulfport Elementary became a fundamental school.

"If I'm hearing from speakers I expect to hear a po-
sition," -Councilman David Hastings, to school board
representatives about if they endorsed the changes to
Gulfport Elementary. Only the Boca Ciega high princi-
pal Michael Vigue would take a position. Mr. Vigue said
he endorsed the change for the high school.

"I am here tonight in an official capacity as presi-
dent of the historical society to give a public thank
you... I think the city did a fine job celebrating our
birthday," -Judy Ryerson told council, thanking the
city for its efforts with the centennial celebration last
"It's just a great town we live in,"-Bob Worthington,
about the city and its assistance with the centennial

"I'm glad you got the money and I'm glad you chose
a hybrid,"-Councilman Sam Henderson, about Chief
of Police Robert Vincent's decision to buy a hybrid car.
"I've been involved with elections. The elections
in Gulfport have been corrupted. We run here a
non-partisan campaign. In recent years we've seen
partisanship. Unfortunately, Michele, you're the
one who started it... You no longer run your cam-
paigns; Sam didn't run his campaign. The DNC
does everything for you. The only thing you guys
have to do is show up for meet the candidates. This
is not right... I've seen you and Mr. Kriseman walk
hand in hand on the beach...Instead of walking on
the beach hand in hand, get a room. Have a politi-
cal menage-a-trois..."-John Freiburger, who also told
the Vice-Mayor she should resign. He spoke past the
three minutes and the Mayor stopped him from speak-

"It is actually legitimate... You may not like it, but
it's not against the law," -Councilwoman Jennifer
Salmon, directing her comments towards Mr. Freiburg-
er about what nonpartisanship in city elections means.

"I don't belong to the DEC," -Vice-Mayor Michele
King, at the end of the meeting, in response to Mr.
Freiburger's comments.
"DNC,"-Mr. Freiburger corrected.
"Whatever it is, I don't belong to it," -Vice-Mayor
King replied. She addressed other accusations Mr.
Freiburger made, finishing by saying, "Ward Two is up
for election. Anybody can run. Go ahead, John, you've
been here for a long time. I would prefer before you
get up before the city council that you get your facts

November 2 Gulfport Council Workshop
"Jennifer's afraid we're going to sell the marina.
She's afraid we're going to sell the waterfront," -
Vice-Mayor Michele King, about creating a list of prop-
"We've got two people here with two different ideas,
but we don't have a two person council here, we've
got a five person council," Mayor Michael Yakes,
in response to back-and-forth discussion between the
Vice-Mayor and Councilwoman Jennifer Salmon
"I remember why this was changed initially; it was
because people didn't like the way Curt Willocks
ran the city. You were a lot nicer when you said it,"
-Vice -Mayor Michele King, about an item in the city
charter that prohibits the head of a public safety divi-
sion from acting temporarily as city manager.

"You haven't had a campaign yet," -Councilman
Sam Henderson, in response to Councilwoman Jennifer
Salmon's assertion that he hadn't run a campaign in a
presidential election.

October 28th Gulfport Council Workshop
"Am I saving money or am I just improving the
world?"- Councilman David Hastings, at the October
28 workshop, about energy conservation improvements.
Councilman Hastings wanted to see the money saved as
well as energy conserved.
"Cats can be on a leash, too. It's a silly concept..."
- Councilman Sam Henderson, about outdoor cats.
"I don't know what kind of drugs they had that cat
on," -Councilman David Hastings, about a cat walk-
ing on a leash at the St. Petersburg Saturday Morning

The Evander Band and a Thank You From Soldiers
By Cathy Salustri
St. Pete Beach Mayor Mike
Finnerty poses with bass guitar-
ist Eddie St. Claire before kick-
ing off the final beach concert
of the season. Mayor Finnerty,
along with Commissioner Al
Halpern and Vice Mayor Jim
Parent, welcomed the Evander
Band, featuring Bobby Hen-
dricks (of The Drifters fame).
Also in attendance was Com-
mand Sergeant Major Gary
Littrell, who received the Con-
gressional Medal of Honor for
"conspicuous gallantry and in-
trepidity in action at the risk
of his life above and beyond the
call of duty" during the Vietnam War. He has made his home in Belle Vista for
the past 23 years.
Mayor Finnerty and his wife Terry spoke about the city-encouraged "Support
Our Troops" effort. The mayor and his wife spearhead this program, which
sends 100 boxes to troops overseas every month. Mayor Finnerty also fought
in Vietnam.
Colonel Greg Canny also spoke to the residents and guests gathered and
thanked the city for sending care packages to troops overseas, something he
said made a big difference to him when he was overseas.
"We're not only proud to be part of your military, we're proud to be party of our
community," Colonel Canny told the crowd.

Popular Youth Author Sherri Smith Visits Bogie

By Leigh Clifton
Sherri Smith, a popular author of teen fiction, vis-
ited Boca Ciega High School last month to speak to
students about her craft. According to Paula God-
frey, Coordinator of Special Projects and Grants
for Pinellas Public Library Cooperative, Smith's
visit coincides with Teen Read Week, a program
sponsored by the Library Cooperative that encour-
ages teenagers to read more. She was in town as
a part of a tour to speak to Pinellas County stu-
dents; Bogie was one of her many stops.
Smith has written four books for young adults:
Fly Girl, about an African-American woman dur-
ing WWII, who passes for white so she can fly with
WASP, Women AirForce Service Pilots; Sparrow,
about a teen living in New Orleans whose grand-
mother dies and leaves her with no one; Hot,
Sticky, Sour, Sweet, about a half Asian/ half Af-
rican -American girl who has to cook dinner for a
teenage crush; and Lucy the Giant, about an over- Young A
ly large girl in Alaska, who, at fifteen, runs away students
to work on a crabbing boat in the Bering Sea. All
four of Smith's books have earned high praise from critics
and American Library Association Awards. Bogie's library
carries her books and they are a very popular read. They
are also available at the Gulfport Library.
Smith, born in Chicago, worked with Tim Burton's produc-
tion company, has done animation for the Simpsons show

even people who gossip can get good material for a story.

So methtln otn my midr
i By Bill Northrop B_Northrop@theGabber.com

Election Observations
A s I write this THE elections
haven't been held, and as you
ead it they have been. The
outcome is or was unimportant to my
comments. And you might agree with
some of my comments. For instance,
the advertising in this election (the
campaigning went on much too long)
was atrocious.
Yes, you do have to occasionally
attack your opponent, but you also
have to provide information about
yourself. Just what in the devil (I
cleaned it up) do you stand for?
What are your ideas and ideals?
What are your solutions? What are
your qualifications? The ads weren't
devoid of those topics, but often it was
difficult to determine who the ads
were for. Some did more to advertise
the opponent than their sponsor.

I'm pro newspaper ads when
there are any, but t.v. bites captured
the money. Candidates and most
voters relied upon free newspaper
news coverage to sort out fact from
fiction and to bring the real issues
to the public. What if newspapers
ignored the elections and the
candidates? They say that no one
reads newspapers? Well, then, "they"
won't be bothered if their name is
associated in print with pedophilia.
No one will read it, right?
Moving right along... I'm also sick
and tired of candidates and political
parties representing specialinterests.
How about what is good for America?
Where do you stand on America and
its ideals?
Those ideals are about individuals,
not groups of individuals. Hey, we're
talking about individual rights, not
group rights. You know the bit, all

about being created equal, not being
made equal by government, but
having equal opportunities.
You don't get that by favoring one
group over another. Isn't determining
that one group or the other (and
individuals in those groups) incapable
of living without the always guiding
hand of government an insult to
those groups and the people in them?
Are they less capable, less intelligent
than others?
Remember the Bill of Rights? Those
are about individual rights. Those
are about protecting individuals from
government not about government
establishing special rights and
privileges for special people. And,
I'm not talking about minorities,
immigrants and those that are
supposedly "feared", but about all
the special interests including the
largest special interest group of all -
those who run the government.
The Founders were concerned about
the power of government, because
history has shown that the more
powerful government is the less
power the governed have. That's
individually and collectively.
Our government structure is all
about balancing the government
powers in the administrative,
legislative and judicial branches. It
is all about curtailing power. It is all
about government moving slowly and
carefully so that there is individual
liberty and opportunity.
The more government, the less
liberty and opportunity. Government
has the duty to protect the individual
from government as well as from
his fellow predators (yes, there are
lots of those). The government is not
about creating more government,
more dependence, and more jobs for
politicians and their supporters.
Happy after election day.

Reaction to "Let's
Have a Tea Party"
Dear Editor: I recently read
your article in the Gulfport Gabber,
and while I found many points I
fundamentally disagreed with in
your article, for the sake of brevity
I'd like to tackle the one that seems
to bother me the most.
It starts when you brush off Ron
Paul and confer upon Rick Santelli
the honor of surging the Tea Party
movement forward. Ron Paul, during
the 2008 Presidential election,
broke records for most campaign
money raised over the internet in

a single day. He gained a massive
following for an otherwise unheard-
of candidate, particularly among
college students. He did this not
by espousing a philosophy of anti-
government spending as much as
espousing anti-government spending
for national defense. During his
campaign he said time and again that
the first thing he'd do is withdraw all
troops from Iraq and Afghanistan,
along with cuts to troop placements
in Japan, Germany, and many other
nations where we still have troops
Compare this to the current Tea
Party, and it is fully understandable
why the "liberal" news outlets
attempted to "ignore" the movement.
There is not a single Tea Party
candidate running for office anywhere
in the country who is campaigning on
cuts to National Defense, even though
National Defense comprises by and
large the biggest part of government
The only cuts Tea Partiers advocate
are cuts to welfare programs and
the repeal of the Health-Care bill
recently passed. This philosophy of
cutting welfare and keeping health
care privatized is identical to the
philosophy espoused by George W.
Bush. Tea Partiers only began to
oppose government spending when
it was the Democrats doing the
spending, exceptions granted to Ron
Paul and very, very few others.
Tea Party candidates like Christine
O'Donnell, Marco Rubio, Sharron
Angle and others run the same ads
and use the same talking points
that George Bush did in his two bids
for election: cut taxes and reduce
spending on welfare. The Tea Party
movement, therefore, is not a new
movement at all, but instead the same
truncated Republican philosophy
that has been spun to the American
people in every election cycle I've
lived through.
Some Tea Party candidates have
advocated the repeal of the fourteenth
amendment. Others have advocated
inserting god into our schools.

None have advocated cuts to
military spending but all of them
advocate decreased taxes. If this
election is, as you say, a referendum
on "people regaining some control of
their destiny," then the Tea Party
would certainly lose, because forcing
a certain religion's god into our public
schools, changing the constitution,
and cutting taxes while continuing to
fund debt-laden wars is as big of an
intrusion into my life as I can think
Benjamin Bostick

Reaction to "Public
Pension System
Stiffs the Taxpayer"
Dear Editor: Mr. Northrop rails
against "Double Dippers". He
concentrates on mostly the state
level with a brief mention of the
federal government, "...And, they
(public pension plans) exist at almost
all levels of government throughout
the United States."
Let us discuss the biggest
bloodsuckers that are ballooning our
deficit and will bring this country
down like former imperialistic
empires: military veterans.
Mr. Northrop states "It's insane to be
paying retirement benefits to people
at age 50 or 55." But, if one enters
the US Armed Forces at age 18 and
retires 20 years later at 38, they get a
full pension for life. They can pursue
another career in government and
get another pension.
It doesn't stop yet. Many get
Veterans' Administration (VA)
benefits as well. With social security,
there are some that are getting three
federal pensions, plus a possible city,
county or state retirement.
To receive VA benefits, one needs to
have just served 90 days active duty
or have a "service related" boo boo.
Remember, there is a VOLUNTEER
military. There is no draft. I say make
service compulsory for everyone in
some capacity. Also, with the new
health care law, we don't need the
Don't get angry with my observations
and opinions. I'm just trying to
make suggestions on how to save
the country from financial ruin with
bloated tax-supported welfare.

Gulfport Beach October 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
comes from the waste of warm-blooded animals, including
The City of Gulfport currently tests for both types of
bacteria. Test results will help classify Gulfport Harbor as
"good", "moderate", or "poor". Enterococcus of less than 35
parts per 100 milliliter and fecal coliform of less than 199
per 100 milliliter of saltwater indicate good water quality.
For more information, contact the City of Gulfport at

will happen if someone challenges a red light ticket issued based on a

A: Well, according to Gulfport police, the cameras will not only use still
photography but video as well, and since the police already use video (and it
does stand up in court, they say) in their cruisers, they don't expect to have any
problems with evidence. Gulfport Chief of Police Rob Vincent added that the
state legislature already approved the system and courts across the state have
upheld the video and still image evidence.
If someone opts not to pay the fine, Chief Vincent explained, they have three
options. They can request an informal review through the police department,
a formal hearing through the county courts, or submit an affidavit of
With the informal hearing, an officer will review the footage and the vehicle's
owner has the chance to argue his side. During the formal hearing, a judge
rules on the evidence. Drivers can submit an affidavit of nonresponsibility if
they wish to claim things like they were not driving (and they can provide the
name an address of the person who was driving the car), they already received
a ticket for the same incident, they no longer owned the car or the vehicle was
stolen at the time of the infraction.

Attorney Keith Sanders, Handles Foreclosure Defense and
Bankruptcies with Experience and Sensitivity

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-

Bogie Varsity Football Takes
Seminole to School

.,. ,

By Leigh Clifton
Bogie Sophomore Caleb McCullough looks up field as he evades the Seminole defense
during Friday night's football game against Seminole. The Pirates beat the Warhawks 27-7
in a much needed victory. The Pirates, 3-5, face Northeast, 4-4, next week.
Bogie football has arguably had a pretty tough season, with four losses end-
ing with less than a two point spread. But last Friday night, all the frustration
at a rocky season erupted from the players as they took down Seminole 27-7.
The 2-7 Warhawks, whose record is little better than the Pirates, 3-5, were
outmanned, outgunned and overpowered by Bogie offensive weapon senior
quarterback Shaquille Bradford, who threw for 171 yards and scored the first
touchdown of the game.
The Pirates meet Northeast, 4-4, next Friday night at Northeast, 7:30 p.m.

A Message of Hope

Boca Ciega teachers and staff wore pink last Friday as a message of hope and
solidarity for one of their own who is battling end-stage breast cancer. Ms.
Debbie Brown was the chorus teacher at Bogie for over ten years and is much
loved by teachers, staff and the students. Ms. Brown is now under Hospice care
for her illness. Close friend, fellow teacher and Bogie Marching Band leader
Frank Williams is saddened by his friends' illness.
"She is a wonderful human being," he said. "The kids just love her; everybody
does. She's a class act. She certainly kept me in line around here."
Another good friend of Ms. Brown, Yata Fields, a Guidance counselor at
Bogie said, "She has always been a vibrant, passionate woman with a fighting
spirit. From day one, she has never conceded defeat; her philosophy is that
she'll continue to fight until she can't anymore."
Ms. Brown's husband has set up a web site, www.caringbridge.org/visit/Deb-
bieBrownl to say hello, leave a message and check on Ms. Brown's status.
Caring bridge is a free nonprofit web service that connects families and friends
during a serious health event to share information love and support.

... *Rawlings prop-
erty, now a state park, takes guests
through the house, yard and grounds.
Down the street, a visit to The Year-
ling restaurant pays homage to Raw-
lings' life and recipes.

'WHY At Cross Creek -
W both the town and
the Rawlings property visitors get
a sense of what life was like in North
Florida 70 years ago and why peo-
ple would brave the wilderness to
live there.
Orange groves, a vegetable patch,
and, of course, the creek all remain
from the days of Cross Creek. If you

state, or think the Yearling pales
in comparison to Rawlings' tales of
Cross Creek, a visit is in order.

~,N The state
W H...Jl park system
now owns and operates the Rawl-
ings' estate. The park
opens from 9 a.m. to
S5 p.m. daily October
j through July, ex-
SII cept for Thanksgiv-
ing and Christmas.
Tours of the home
and grounds take
place every hour.
The Yearling res-
taurant is open
Thursday and Fri-

day from 5
p.m. until 10
p.m., Satur-
days from
noon until
10 p.m. and
noon until
8:30 p.m. on

WHERE. Find the
Kinnan Rawlings Historic State Park
at 18700 County Road 325 in Cross
Creek; keep driving and you'll see
The Yearling restaurant about a mile
or two down the road. This is a three
hour drive (give or take); if you want
to stay overnight, the restaurant op-
erates The Yearling cottages.

BE Tj part: Hands down,
fL L J. the sour orange pie
at The Yearling restaurant. Seville,
or sour, oranges grow in abundance
in the area, and the tangy citrus fla-
vor works well in a pie. These pies
are similar to key lime pies, but with
sour oranges rather than key lime.

If you go to the park during winter
months, the tour guides will let you
have as many oranges as you can
If you just want to taste the pie,
though, have a slice at the restau-
rant. It isn't cheap, but the decor,
music and the food (we had venison,
redfish, collards, and, of course, the
pie) make it an experience worth the
price of admission.
A day at the park and dinner in the
restaurant gives even the most citi-
fied of us an idea of what life was like
for Ms. Rawlings.

flR S part: A com-
WORST ment in Cross
Creek elicited a lawsuit that only
added to Ms. Rawlings' struggles
with her inner demons. Despite her
contributions to Floridana and liter-
ature, Marjorie Kin-
nan Rawlings wrote
nothing of note after
Cross Creek, and she
died in 1953, at 57.

Question: Admission
to the park costs $3 per
carload and the tour
costs $3 per person. A
meal at the restaurant
will set each diner back about
$30 $40, and if you want to take
home a sour orange pie, add another
$40 to the bill.

A satirical look at the world around us.

By Anne Rush

een to the DMV lately to renew
your driver' license? For better
or worse, they require a lot
more documentation than they used
to. For some people this is no problem
whatsoever. These are generally
Type A Obsessive Compulsive Highly
Organized Individuals or TAOCHOIs
as I like to call them. I am not one
of them, but you know who they are.
They probably work in the cubby
next to your organized-chaos desk or
in accounting. You rarely see them
in a TAI-CHI class (they don't slow
So God bless my sister who has
been married four times (two of them
didn't really count). We've come a
long way, baby(!) in terms of women's
rights and all, but we're still the only
gender that changes their surname
upon marriage.
The DMV required that she produce
each of her original marriage
certificates and divorce decrees.
Her 38 year journey searching for
true love involved many moves and
many boxes. I remember when her
divorce decree came through for one
particular liaison, I was actually at
the bonfire where we foolishly burned
that original marriage certificate
and celebrated. That falls into the
category of "Seemed like a good idea
at the time", we now know.
Hers was not an easy task, but she
did it. Her new license is good for
11 years and she's been in a loving
marriage now for over 20. Good for
I don't know what our government's
motivation is for such tactics. Is it to
secretly increase revenues by making
people frantically write checks to the

Gabber November 4 November 70, 2010

Bureaus of Vital Statistics? If so,
why is unemployment so high? I'm
all about smaller government, but
surely that department is hiring.
Is it to weed out terrorists? If so,
here's my advice. Every terrorist
is gonna have a neat little folder
with all required documentation
in tact. Those are the people they
should be pulling out of the line and
questioning. The folks who are yelling
and complaining with their most
recent utility bill in hand should be
waved right through to the infamous
photo booth of God-Awful pictures!
Still, we really do need our photo
ID. I never knew how much I needed
mine until recently. You see, I lost
my daughter's social security card.
This is something that would never
happen to a TAOCHOI, I know, but
it happened to me.
Now the social security office
required that you send all original
documents. Copies don't cut it. So one
day I gathered: 1) my original birth
certificate; 2) my original marriage
certificate (to prove the name change
and all); 3) my original social security
card; 5) my current driver's license;
6) a current bank statement; 7) my
daughter's original birth certificate;
8) her original state photo ID; and
9) her report card from the end of
school last year to prove her address
and that she was still alive as of June
2010 (she had made honor roll!).
I knew these documents were
valuable so I tried to hand-deliver
them to my local social security
office. If you've ever visited one,
they're packed, even in the middle
of the month. So I tried to leave
them with the elder social security
security guard at the front desk, but
he would have nothing of it. I found
a clerk whose window was open and
tried to hand deliver them to her, but
she told me to take a number and get
in line. "But I don't need to talk to
:iny.n.-'I I protested. She gave me
the look. As I passed the security
guard when leaving to go to the post
office to send them via return receipt

Identity Crisis

mail, I thought "I bet he doesn't wait
in line for anything". Hmmm.
They kept these documents for two
Ordinarily this would not be a
problem, but as luck would have it, I
needed to open a bank account. After
filling out forms, the CSR said "OK,
we're done here and I'll be right back
with copies. I just need your photo
ID." Darn! I didn't have it and had
to explain my story. All I had to offer
was my Voter Registration Card and
library card as back up, but she just
smiled. That was the first time it
occurred to me that I really have no
ID on me or even at home whatsoever.
I felt naked.
The next week, I went to deposit my
pay check, but realized I couldn't get
cash back like I usually do because I
didn't have my photo ID. That was
fine I could always use the ATM I
A few days later, I made a doctor's
appointment for my daughter and
had to get her out of school a little
early. She had just started high
school and so I hadn't had to pick
her up early from school yet. Then
I began sweating it thinking they
might not let me take my daughter
without my photo ID, but luckily she
met me in the parking lot. Whew!
I was fortunate to get this
appointment for her while she was
sick because it was a new doctor so
we weren't established patients yet.
Still they agreed to see her. As I filled
out all of that paperwork and went
to pay at the window, of course they
asked to see my ID. Again I had to
Honestly, after I filled her
prescription and brought her home,
I had to fight this urge to go to a bar
only because that's the one place I
could think of where they wouldn't
ask to see my ID!
But it's all good now. My daughter
has her new social security card, I
have all my original documents and
most importantly, my driver's license
back. I now have a file folder labeled
"Really Important Papers" and I'm
pretty sure I even generally know
where it is. ACLU be damned, but
I'm gonna push for microchips at
birth. Are ya with me?
