ST. PETE BEACH- Starting when she was a
Brownie at the age of eight Maureen Carr has been
a volunteer. For the last two years the retired airline
employee has helped with monthly care packages
for St. Pete Beach's Support Our Troops.
This year Carr made 70 angels for special Christmas
care packages to the troops out of patriotic and
camouflage fabrics. The non-profit sends throughout
the year food and hygiene packages to about 50
soldiers with St. Pete Beach connections serving in
Afghanistan and Iraq. The hand made angels are
one of the ways Carr shows she is forever grateful
for the men and women who serve for this country,
she said.
Carr's inspiration for helping the troops comes from
family stories and genealogy research on her great
uncle who served and died in France during World
War I, See Troops, page

Celebrating Veterans

By Melissa Lattman
At the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 1 th month the
Veteran's Day remembrance began at American Legion
Post 305 at 6999 Gulf Boulevard. Ringing the bell 11
times was Larry Williams who served in the medical corps
driving an ambulance during the Korean conflict. Veterans
shared the history of Veteran's Day, which started as
Armistice Day, marking the end of World War I. The day
honors America's veterans for their service and sacrifice.

Downtown Gets Greek
Food, Seafood From
Experienced Restaurateur
By Cathy Salustri
If all goes well, the old Domain restau-
rant in Gulfport will soon reopen as the
Neptune Grill, serving both seafood and
Greek food. At the helm of the restaurant
will be Kostandinos Vartsakis, whose
family owns Skidders on St. Pete Beach.
Mr. Vartsakis also owns part of Sea Crit-
ters (also on St. Pete Beach.).
When he applied for an occupational li-
cense with the city, he told planner Myra
Schwarz he intended to open a "seafood
restaurant with a Greek flair," she told
the Gabber.
Mr. Vartsakis told the Gabber he initially
wanted to open December first, but after
working in the space realized "sometime
in December" made more sense. Some is-
sues, such as a failed air conditioning sys-
tem, brought that realization about.
"So far, so good!" he said. "It's going to be
so good- we'll have something for fish lov-
ers, Greek lovers, and light food lovers,"
Mr. Vartsakis added. He plans to stay on
as general manager of Sea

Extra Tax Exemption for Gulfport Seniors
Gulfport residents over 65 who earn less than $25,780 will now get an
additional $25,000 homestead exemption on their Gulfport property taxes.
"Sam Henderson was equally responsible for bringing it forward,"
Councilwoman Jennifer Salmon said in response to a statement that she led
the charge in getting this exemption passed.

Critters. He says a general manager,
kitchen manager, and family will all
help run the Neptune Grill.
The Neptune Grill will bring two
things to Gulfport's waterfront rede-
velopment district: Greek food and
seafood. Currently, the waterfront
district has Cuban, Italian, Mexican,
American and British fare. Although
many restaurants serve seafood,
none bill themselves as a seafood
restaurant, Gulfport Merchant's As-
sociation president Leslie Gilchrist
"We're pretty international down
there and that's one thing that we
don't have yet," Ms. Schwarz said.
"We are thrilled to have that cor-
ner filled and we certainly welcome
them," Ms. Gilchrist enthused. "I just
think it's wonderful. Gulfport doesn't
have too may places that aren't open,
and they fill up pretty fast. We're
really fortunate, in this economy. It
could have sat there for years."

New Marina Cameras
in Gulfport
The city will spend roughly $36,000
to lease security cameras for the
"It is well-within my spending limit
but it is for a five-year length and I
felt council should be consulted," city
manager Jim O'Reilly said.
Among other things, the cameras
will help marina staff determine if
anyone spills while trying to self-
refuel. It also will help maintain
safety of the fuel stores.
"Marina slip renters have been
increasingly expressing concern
about security breaches in and around
the city of Gulfport's Municipal

Marina," Resolution 2010-79 says,
continuing to say the "primary
the goal of improving Marina
security is to reduce the number
of reported thefts and advance
the overall safety of the facility."
Councilman David Hastings
suggested paying cash for the lease,
saying the move would save the city
$8,000. Councilmember Hastings
pointed out that he knew of no
investments that would yield $8,000
on $36,000.

Gulfport Police Get
New Cruiser and
Hybrid Vehicle
The Gulfport Police will purchase a
replacement police vehicle as well as
a hybrid car. The cruiser will replace
an existing car; the city budgeted for
this expense. The officers assigned
to Boca Ciega High School will use
the hybrid vehicle.
"I think the intent of us purchasing
a hybrid car is that we want to have
it out on the road and have a fossil
fuel car off the road, not sitting at
the high school," Councilmember
Jennifer Salmon said. City manager
Jim O'Reilly explained that the car
couldn't perform up to the standards
of a typical police cruiser.
"The Ford Fusion hybrid is not
what we call a pursuit-rated vehicle,
there are certain vehicles approved
to be police cars. That's why police
departments, for the most part, drive
the Ford Crown Victoria. These cars
have upgraded brakes, exhaust, and
other features.
According to city documents, the
Michigan State Police conduct
yearly review of all vehicles for
sale for police use (in the United
States). Currently, five vehicles
have manufacturer-certification for
use in police pursuits: the Chevrolet
Impala, Chevrolet Tahoe, Chevrolet
Caprice, Ford Crown Victoria Police
Interceptor (CVPI), and Dodge
The police department and the
central garage suggest the Dodge

Chargerfor severalreasons, including
rear-wheel drive, fewer maintenance
issues, better performance and fuel
economy than other options.
The city will pay just under $25,000
for the replacement vehicle.

honor for having raised the most
money for an upcoming associate

Kudos to the Parks
Dear Editor: The Ted Phillips
Wood Ibis Park is very special.
Recently a Magnolia tree there
died and I was pleased to see
that it was promptly replaced.
The "thanks" must go to Jim Vice
who is the daily monitor of the park.
Mr. Vice has never missed a day of
checking outtheparkandsees toit that
the new fountain is in working order.
If not, he makes sure that it is fixed.
As the person who donated the first
fountain and the first Magnolia tree,
I'd like Jim to know how special he
is, not only to me but to everyone who
visits our park. Thank you!

By L C ar ac

Debbie Scerca, St. Pete Beach:
"No, I think they're necessary because
I don't care if they pat me down if
it will prevent or deter a possible
terrorist from getting on a plane.
We don't really have any privacy
anymore anyway; the terrorists have
destroyed our sense of safety and the
ability to live our lives on our own
terms. That sort of makes them win
because they are able to influence
how we live our lives. But if a pat
down before a flight keeps them off
my plane, that's a good thing. They
won't win forever; we'll get the bad
guys soon enough, I hope."

Kevin Johnson, Treasure Island:
"I feel the pat-downs are necessary
for security purposes. As to the full
body scans, from what I understand,
they are anonymous; there are
no faces that can be recognized or
identified and nobody but the TSA
official can see what is on the scan.
Everybody had two eyes, two legs etc,
so I don't see what the fuss is really
all about. It's for our safety. I would
rather have a bit of inconvenience
than wonder of the guy in front of
me is carrying a bomb that will go
on my plane."

Bill Webb, So. Pasadena: "Number
one, I don't fly; that was a decision
I made before 911. But I am very
disturbed by the reaction of TSA
officials when ap erson opts out of either
method. I don't think it's necessary
to stop everyone and assume they're
a terrorist. Freedom sometimes is
a dangerous thing; if you feel that
you're not safe you can always move
someplace safer, like Singapore. Just
don't spit in public. But seriously, I
would probably let them pat me down;
it IS an invasion of my privacy but its
part of the equation. If I feel that it's
going to get to be a big problem, I just
won't fly."

Jillian LoDico, St. Pete: "No, I
don't think it's an invasion of my
privacy. I would rather have 45
seconds of somebody patting me
down than thinking that somebody
got through without one and might
be on my plane. I would feel safe
enough getting pat-downs by the TSA
officials; they're professionals and
are trained to do this sort of thing. It
would definitely make me feel safer
flying and I think it makes the flights
and the airports safer."

Happy Holidays
The talent of five Treasure Island
Art Guild members is now on
display at our Community Center.
We present George Avery, Linda
Crister, Arlene Kitchen, Jerry
Palmer and Jeanne Sarkis. The
exhibit will run through December
28, 2010. Today we introduce the
works of George Avery, Linda
Crister and Arlene Kitchen.
A child like imagination rules
in the enchanting art of multi-
award winning oil painter George
Avery. "Every Blooming Thing",
"Enchanted Forest" and "Rush
Hour" give us bright colors and
unique renditions of life on planet
Earth. After you have experienced
the delightful "Undercover Birds"
you will never look at our feathered
friends the same way again.
A self-taught watercolor artist,
Linda Crister exhibits her floral
painting talent in "Orange Bird
of Paradise". Enjoy "Pink Tulips"
as it captures the translucent
quality of her medium. She shows
her sensitivity to color and form in
"White Lilies" and "White Bird of
Paradise". She has exhibited her
work in several shows and has won
many awards.
Arlene Kitchen's "Tulips" in
watercolor and an acrylic "In the
Still of the Night" show us her
ability to work in a variety of media.
Her watercolors "At Days End" with
its cumulous clouds and blue green
sea gives us a perfect sailing day
and the charm of "Suzie's Porch"
invites the viewer to stay awhile
and enjoy the bouquet of fresh cut

Our Knowledge & Professional Products Will Help You Do It Right The 1st Time

AtMtoroscoe Guide

By Holiday Mathis
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You
may not feel that you have the skills
to tackle the job you are given, but
that doesn't keep you from doing
a fantastic job. Your performance
is even better than that of more
experienced folks, largely because of
the questions you ask. You assume
nothing and learn everything you
need to know.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21).
You will remember the first thing you
loved about someone who is special
to you, and you will be adding many
other things to the list this week.
It would be wonderful if you could
deliver your love expressed on paper.
But if you feel like that is too much
to do now, at least write it down and
keep it for yourself.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You
feel better when things are neat and
organized, though this may be quite a
feat now. Your schedule is packed to
the gills, and there is hardly time for
you to clean up, return phone calls
or do extra things for yourself like
get a haircut. If you can enlist some
help, you'll put yourself in a better
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You
will have a playful relationship with
your loved ones because you make
that your intention. You realize how
important it is to make humor and
fun a big priority. And your work only
gets better as you connect more often
with your loved ones through fun and
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You
will have so many fantastic ideas
this week that it might be difficult to
know which ones you should act on
first. You can ask others, but that
won't bring you any closer to success.
Assume you already have all the
answers inside you, and go with your
gut instinct. You are more psychic
than you know.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). You

have some thoughts that deserve
to be followed by a roomful of wild
applause. Then there are other
thoughts you have that are not even
really worthy of your attention. The
trick is in knowing which thoughts
to put in which category. Hint: If
a thought is causing you distress,
disregard it and choose another.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Though
you can't help but spend a good deal
of your week chasing enough dollars
to make ends meet, it doesn't have to
be ajoyless process. Here's something
to keep in mind: Happiness is
available to all. The best part is, it
doesn't cost a penny. Open your
arms, and let it come to you.
GEMINI (dNl.i 21-June 21). If you
ask some people, for a risk to be fun, it
has to be big. You wouldn't necessarily
choose to climb Mt. Everest, but you
have your own version of this kind
of colossal undertaking. You'll face a
challenge that is 100 percent of your
own choosing. And you will succeed
because your approach is humble
and human.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). You
will be working on another interesting
puzzle this week. The answer doesn't
come from thinking things over
excessively. Instead, it pops into
your head at a moment when your
thoughts have vacated -- like when
you're driving, walking, showering or
just gazing out the window.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). If you write a
note, seal it in a bottle and send it out
to sea, you will be littering. But you
will also be providing a potentially
interesting source of excitement and
intrigue for the unsuspecting seaside
stroller who picks up the bottle and
reads the message. This week, your
messages are sent through unusual
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). The
friend who is not demanding may not
capture your attention as well as a
certain needy person has. That's why


the Gabr. vr husa ic 98

you have to make a conscious decision
to make the extra effort to appreciate
friends who are capable and self-
sufficient. Doing so will be extremely
lucky for you this week.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Humor
heals. The best part is that you
don't have to laugh about your own
problems to get the benefit of this
emotional balm -- someone else's will
do just fine. It doesn't matter what
you're laughing at; it just matters
that you do. You'll have a roaring
good time with laid-back Libra or
This Week's Birthdays: You feel
a strong sense of purpose this year
as you do the things that make a
difference. Your love life thrives into
the new year as you findit increasingly
easy to put others first, communicate
well and make your loved ones feel
special. You get an idea and run
with it in January. Though there are
some costs involved in getting this
off the ground, in a few months your
finances will be favorably affected. In
April, you'll have the gumption to go
out and get new clients, customers
and fans.

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

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

pers concerning bank-
ruptcy law in general,
ECF requirements and
new issues. He is a
former director of the
Bankruptcy Section of
the State Bar of Geor-
The firm also handles
Short Sale 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.

Gulfport City Council Meeting

Public Comment

& Council Quotes

"I kept calling it 'Certs' and a very nice person I know said, you
know, we're not a breath mint,"-Councilwoman Jennifer Salmon, about
a Community Emergency Response Team, or CERT, meeting she recently

"The people who are trying to delay it are the people who have a
vested interest in not trying to clean up the water," -Councilwoman
Jennifer Salmon, in reference to the delay in enforcing EPA guidelines in
regards to nitrogen contamination in water.

"This is the beginning of Gulfport recycling everything," -Vice
Mayor Michele King, about the imminent and in-progress
implementation of the city's new recycling program.

"Your voice may not sound good but your brain's working great,"
Councilman Sam Henderson, to Councilman David Hastings, who
apologized for a scratchy voice while explaining why the city should make
certain financial arrangements

"I'm disappointed in myself... I, as your mayor allowed a meeting
to go out of order, and I take the responsibility. I dropped the ball,"
-Mayor Mike Yakes, about the first city council meeting this month,
where he said he didn't follow the city's set procedure for meetings.

"I want to apologize also, because when I spoke two weeks ago I
didn't follow proper protocol... I made a lot of comments about my
very deep displeasure with the corruption of our local elections... I
want to clarify.... I've known Michele for a long time- I'm sorry, the
councilmember from ward two for a long tine. She's a hard worker.
She does her own campaigning, she does her own fundraising
and she has for a long time. I like Michele; she's been a friend.
Councilmember from ward four, I like you also. It's not a personal
thing," -John Freiburger, who spoke at the last city council meeting about
his displeasure at the way certain people allegedly handled campaigning

"You won't get any of the Gabber slant on things, which is only
one way. I understand that the reporter has to do that because the
reporter has a boss," -John Freiburger

S oethp Brtopt myh mir

In Your Ear
Everyone has been talking about
earmarks, but nobody's been doing
anything about them. Now "they",
at least some of the congressional
Republicans, might. No. Earmarks
aren't ear piercings gone wrong,
but they are federal spending
sometimes heading in the wrong
direction. The word probably came
from earmarking animals for
identification, by the way.
Earmarks and pork barrel seem
to go hand-in-hand though they're
not exactly the same. Simply
put, without political overtones,
earmarks are specific monies
directed by people in congress to
specific projects in their districts.
The funds are dollars already
appropriated to federal agencies by

* Comprehensive Eye
Health Examination
* Children's Vision Care
* Dry Eye Care
* Cataract & Glaucoma
* Drivers License Exams

Hence, critics of the anti-earmarks
crusade say that the ban on them
will not save any money. Worse, it
is contended, the ban allows either
the bureaucrats in the agencies
or the executive branch to make
the decisions. Better, critics say,
is to let individual congress people
make the choice. Our congressman,
Bill Young, known as the king of
earmarks or pork (take your pick),
is one of those.
Critics of the ban critics say the
system is way out of hand, that
most of the earmarks benefit
districts whose congress person
has the most power. The power
usually comes with seniority that
largely determines committee
chairmanships. Also, earmarks are
often loaded into bills that have
no relationship to the content of

* Disposable
* Colors
* Comeal Refractive
* Bifocal

* We Accept Most

^^rn-,u ma^r^F^^^^ *is

the original bill and are used to
get the vote of the congress person
who gets the benefit. The benefit,
of course, is for people, institutions,
organizations and projects within
that person's district.
President Obama abhorred
earmarks and vowed to chase
them out of his administration.
Yet, he allowed earmarks to litter
the landscape of the Stimulus bill.
Apparently, he needed the votes.
He's against them again because
teapartiers seem to have forced some
Republican congressional leaders to
deal with them.
We'll see what happens. Technically,
the anti-ban people are correct.
Symbolically, they're not. Earmarks,
which may or may not be pork barrel
(that is, those way out projects like
bridges to nowhere), irritate the
general public. The specific public
represented by those who benefit
by the specific handouts don't share
that irritation unless the money
goes somewhere else.
The general public is more right
than wrong. There's an unevenness,
and unfairness in the present
system. It encourages excess
spending because everyone wants
his or her share. So, the spending
cascades. Why shouldn't this district
get what the other district got? I'll
vote for yours if you'll vote for mine
and then we can both support the big
bill that carries them. It all amounts
to spending and more spending as
well as vote buying.
Not a small amount of the blame
lies with the people in the district
who get the money. Money is wanted
(as opposed to needed) in every
community. Organizations and
local governments are encouraged
to create projects whether or not
they can be supported wholly by the
locality. Hence, earmarks to ease
the financial burden.
It's truly amazing. We send our
money to the federal government
(or, to the state) and then ask
them to send it back to us minus
administrative overhead costs. Then
we complain about their spending.
Go figure.

You & THE

By Robert J. Myers, Esq.
Your Personal Injury
Rights (Part I)
The State of Florida's Motor
Vehicle No-Fault Law affects your
personal injury protection rights if
you are in an accident involving a
motor vehicle.
First, the Florida Motor Vehicle
No-Fault Law provides personal
injury protection (PIP) benefits.
These benefits pay for certain
losses you may have resulting
from an accident. Second, the
Florida Motor Vehicle No-Fault
Law dictates a limited exemption
for liability for injuries suffered by
others in a vehicular accident.
All residents of the State of
Florida who own a motor vehicle



are required to purchase PIP.
Someone has PIP coverage if they
are the named insured. A named
insured is covered by PIP if she
or he is injured by a motor vehicle
even if that person is outside of a
motor vehicle, for example, if they
are injured by a motor vehicle by a
Relations and children who live
with the named insured may also
be covered by PIP benefits of the
named insured if they are driving
the named insured's vehicle and
are injured. Similarly, if the same
people are injured when they are
passengers in the named insured's
vehicle or another vehicle, they may
be covered by the named insured's
benefits. Likewise, pedestrians
which are relatives in the named
insured's household who are
injured by the motor vehicle may
be entitled to PIP benefits under
the named insured's motor vehicle
insurance policy.
People other than relatives of a
named insured may be entitled to
a name insured's PIP benefits. If

someone is driving in a named
insured's vehicle, is a passenger in
that insured vehicle or is injured as
a pedestrian after being struck by
the named insured's vehicle, that
person may be legally covered by
the named insured's PIP benefits.
Finally, if you as a named insured
are injured while driving your
insured vehicle outside the State of
Florida, you may be covered under
your motor vehicle PIP benefits so
long as the accident occurred in the
United States, Canada or in U.S.
territories or possessions. This
same scope of coverage may also
apply to relations who are living in
a named insured's household.
In our next article, we will explore
together some additional aspects of
personal injury protection rights
and benefits including medical
payments/benefits and certain
exclusions to PIP coverage.

City of Bullies
When I was in middle school,
other girls and more than a
few boys liked to make fun
of me and intimidate me. I got beat
up a few times. It's not a shock, really:
I, uh, developed early but remained
physically awkward, preferred books
to people, and really liked to write
poetry. I think it's safe to say I was
never a threat to the class president
or the prom queen. By the time I got
to high school, I didn't care, and in
college, I realized that no one else
did, either.
The word bully means "a blustering,
quarrelsome, overbearing person who
habitually badgers and intimidates
smaller or weaker people."
Interesting tidbit about the word
bully: it originates from the Dutch
"boel," meaning lover or brother. In
the 1530s it meant sweetheart. By
the 1680s, a bully was worthy, jolly
and admirable, which is where we got
the 19th century expression "Bully
for you!" Of course, that's not how we
use it today.
Bullies no longer bother me; Irealized
long ago that no one could make me
do anything (my mom will vouch for
that) I didn't want to do. However,
I can't stand to see other people
get bullied, whether the bullying
is verbal, emotional or physical.
And the city known for its sense of
community is quickly becoming a
bullyfest of epic proportions, at least
at Gulfport city council meetings.
Oh, I'm not just talking about certain
people who speak during public
comment and make accusations
about our council members. Perhaps
following the lead of a few aggressive
citizens who weren't stopped when
they got nasty, our council itself is
starting to behave no better. At least
two or three councilmembers are
guilty of nastiness on occasion.
Worse than any of the ugliness,
bullying, or slander we hear from
either side of the dais at a council
meeting, though, is the person who
allows it to continue when it is within
their power to stop it.

It pains me to say this, but the
Mayor's behavior over the past few
council meetings and workshops is
deplorable. He holds some people to
their allotted time to speak but not
others. He allows one councilperson
to speak but cuts another off.
Watching him over the past couple
months, I get the impression he has
some sort of specific problem with
both Vice-Mayor King and citizen
Al Davis, although not at the same
time. He cuts off Ms. King but not
other councilmembers, and any time
anyone tries to applaud something
Mr. Davis says, he says it hurts
the clerk's ears when she tries to
transcribe the minutes. When the city
gives an award, however, he allows
the applause to continue, making me
wonder what about the applause for
Mr. Davis is so offensive.
He also seems unwilling to stop
some people from hurling insults,
even though the city attorney has
repeatedly stressed that the mayor
can remind speakers to refrain
from personal attacks and address
their remarks to council as a whole.
That's the mayor's job. When Vice-
Mayor King loses her cool or an
audience member starts to accuse a
councilmember of having an affair,
the mayor should step in and stop
it. It's his job, but it hasn't happened
I don't believe that the mayor realizes
how much he tends to play favorites
in these meetings. Instead, I'm going
to assume that he feels bullied by
certain members of his city. I'm
also going to choose to assume that
the bullies simply behave that way
because no one stops them.
I'm not one to believe the best of
people- most people have black bits
in their soul but logic prevails here.
Councilmembers and citizens who
get socially aggressive simply can't
all be bullies at heart. Bullies are
only bullies when people give in to
Gulfport is not a city of bullies. This
city is filled with passionate, involved,
thinking people. But the city needs a
leader who will stop the nonsense,

who isn't afraid to shut it down when
someone crosses the line, whether it's
someone speaking out of turn on the
dais or a citizen making a personal
attack on another. The mayor owes it
to the city to put a stop to the yelling,
the slander, the accusations, and the
personal attacks on both sides of the
dais. He owes it to the city do this
every time, without favoritism. Until
that happens, council meetings aren't
about what's best for Gulfport. They'll
be about who can kick the most sand
in the weak kid's face after school.
Your city is counting on you to remind
everyone that that kind of thing has
no place in Gulfport, Mayor. It's dark
days ahead for the city if you can't
restore order to council meetings.
But if you can? Well, sir, bully for

Good Samaritans Save Gulfport

By Cathy Salustri
On October 25, Rhonda
Milash clipped leashes on
her dog and her sister's dog
and took them for a walk
down Gray Street. As she
was walking the dogs, she
heard two dogs barking. She
thought that the barking
sounded aggressive, but
before she could give it a
second thought, she saw a pit
bull escape from a fence and
come at her nine-year-old
cocker spaniel/ chow rescue
dog, Casie Marie.
"We were
just walking
and this
pit bull
came out of
Ms. Milash
said. "Then
this yellow

and they

four days,
that's how hard I screamed."
The pit bull, Ms. Milash
says, "hit my dog so hard
she landed on her back." She
started punching the pit bull
to get it off her dog. Through
it all, her sister's dog, Romeo,
escaped the attack.
"I just remember punching
it and punching it, like a bar
fight. I remember rolling on
the ground," she says. She
says the pit bull attacked
her wrist and the upper part
of her hand.
Her neighbor, Bob White,
and his girlfriend Jackie got
between the dogs.
"It was a mess; those
dogs were all over them,"
he remembers. "We heard
screaming. I saw the dogs
running around this lady
and I ran down there. We
got in between the dogs and

Ms. Milash's sister's dog,
a Japanese Chin named
Romeo, escaped the attack.
"I said, 'Romeo, go home'
and he looked at me with
these big doggies eyes and
ran to my house," she says.
"The owner came running
out and had gotten one of the
dogs and threw it into the
car, but he left the windows
open. Eventually we were
able to get the second dog,"
Mr. White recalls, saying
that by then his neighbor
was crying.
"She was upset, naturally.

Mr. White says. He

police officers and
Mr. White says the
dogs' owner criticized
Ms. Milash's
"He was more critical
than he was worried.
He was like, 'Well,
it didn't help that
she was in between
the dogs trying to
protect them'. If they
attacked my dogs,
I'd be in there too,"
he says. "He wasn't
concerned much Rhond
whether she was OK swolle
or her dogs were OK.

It was really disappointing."
Matt Mitchell, the dogs'
owner, says he did care about
Ms. Milash's safety but was

taken aback by her threat to
sue him.

Pit Bull Laws
Rhonda Milash says pit bull owners
shouldhave toposta notice in theiryard
that they own the breed. She points to
other areas where she says owning
a pit bull terrier is against the law.
Both Sergeant Burkhart and Officer
Hohenstern say no laws exist,
either in Gulfport or the county
to address pit bulls specifically.
"It's the deed, not the breed. We've t
had pit bulls declared dangerous, C
we've had Chihuahuas declared R
dangerous. It's circumstances and
severity," Officer Hohenstern says. hi
Indeed, the issue over whether or to
not the breed itself causes a problem M

"I don't know what stipulations

pit it needs to be registered with the
city, and it needs to be posted. Just
like a sex offender," Ms. Milash says.
"What kind of stipulations do we
have here?'
Bob White agrees.
"The Gulfport police do a wonderful
job, don't get me wrong, but when we
have these situations with dogs who
get loose, they will warn them and
warn them before they lay down a
fine. We've had this problem before;
this is the worst one we've seen here.

Gulfport Police Sergeant Rob
Burkhart says that the city turned
this case over to Animal Services.
Gulfport police filed no charges
against the dog owner, but Animal
Services conducted a dangerous dog
investigation and required owner
Matt Mitchell to keep the dogs in

On November 14, Director ofPinellas
County Animal Services Dewayne
Taylor declared both the pit bull and
the yellow lab dangerous dogs. Mr.
Mitchell can surrender the dogs for
euthanization or appeal the decision.
"If the dogs are found dangerous,
there's nothing we can do about
this," he said before Animal Services
informed him of their decision.
"Animal Control says we're going to
have to put them down."
Despite contrary statements on the
Animal Services web site, owners
of dogs deemed dangerous have no
alternatives to euthanization if they
lose the appeal.
"It's a death sentence; there are
no living dangerous dogs in Pinellas

Discover The Inside Scoop On The Benefits of

Group Travel From a Travel Pro

"I'm often amazed at the benefits
people receive simply by choosing
to go on vacation as a group," said
Lacey Glass, Group Travel Specialist
for AAA Travel.
"The groups I work with often get
better pricing, special amenities,
exclusive activities, private events
and shipboard credits simply for
booking as a group with AAA." Lacey
explains. "The other huge benefit is
that group leaders can earn a free
trip and travel at no cost."
As one of the largest leisure travel
agency in North America, serving
more than 52 million members, AAA
books thousands of group on cruises
and group tours each year.
Lacey explained any kind of group
can travel together with AAA Travel.
The groups she works with range in
size from fifteen people to over 500
people. Some of the more popular
types of groups are senior groups,
community groups, Red Hatters,
Kiwanis, garden clubs, church and
youth groups, family reunions,
alumni groups, bridge groups, dance
groups and more.
"With all of the resources AAA
Travel has, we can create any type
of trip that you can imagine. There
is no specific type of group or set trip
groups must take," Lacey explains.
Aside from the financial benefits,
there are also numerous social
benefits to group travel. People that
travel together generally form strong
and lasting bonds.
One of Lacey's most rewarding
moments occurred last winter when
a retired widow from Michigan that
went on a cruise with her condo
association that Lacey planned, told
her "I've lived in this condo complex
with my neighbors for four years, but
after we took that cruise together, I
now live among friends that are as
dear to me as my family. Thank you."
When asked what the most popular
tours are, Glass replied, "Certain
groups have their favorite trips.
Garden clubs love to visit the gardens
and castles in England, while wine
clubs always enjoy a Napa tour or a
luxury river cruise in France."
A lot of the senior condos and mobile
home parks have a welcome back

cruise every fall. I recently planned
one to the Eastern Caribbean on the
new Royal Caribbean ship, Oasis of
the Seas. This is the first time this
group has planed a cruise for their
community, and they have over sixty
people signed up to go!"
With four cruise lines sailing from
Tampa, there are many opportunities
and destinations available to local
residents. It is also easy to sail from
Port Canaveral as AAA Travel can
arrange motor coach transportation.
If cruising is not your thing, take
your group on a tour to destinations
you only dream about. Always
wanted to see the Grand Canyon and
our National Parks in the western
US? How about sipping coffee in a
caf6 in Paris, throwing a coin in the
Trevi Fountain in Rome or learning
Tai Chi in China? AAA Travel will
help you find the tour that matches
your group's special interests and
Working as a full time group travel
specialist allows Lacey to truly work
with the groups and communities
to help ensure that group leaders
earn the free trips and travel perks
they deserve. Lacey explains, "I
have many lectures on different
destinations which I can come out
and present to your community. I
can also help you set up and host

Holy Spirit, you who solves all problems, who
lights all roads so that I can attain my goal, you
who give me the divine gifts to forgive and for-
get al evil against me and that in all instances
of my life you are with me, I want in this short
prayer to thank you for all things and confirm
once again that I never want to be separated
from you, even in spite of all material illusions.
I wish to be with you, in eternal glory. Thank
you for your mercy toward me and mine.
- St. Michael, the Archangel, Defend Us In
Battle; Be Our Defense Against the Wicked-
ness and Snares of the Devil. May God Re-
buke Him We Humbly Pray; and Do You Oh
Prince of the Heavenly Host, By the Power
of God, Thrust Into Hell Satan and the Other
Evil Spirits Who Prowl About the World For the
Ruin of Souls. Amen. St. Michael, I Resort
to Your Protection and in My Faith, Offer This
Light Which Shall Burn Every Tuesday. Com-
fort Me in My Difficulties and While Lodging in
the House of Our Savior Intercede for Me and
My Family That We Will Be Able to Hold God
Close to Our Hearts and Be Provided for in All
of Our Necessities. I Beseech You, to Have
Infinite Pity in Regard to Favors I ask of You
(Name Them) So That I May Be Able To Over-
come All Difficulties as You Did the Dragons
at Your Feet. Our Father (Say 3 Times). Hail
Mary(Say 3 Times). Glory Be (Say 3 Times).
This Prayer is to be Said 9 Tuesdays, in Suc-
cession and Each Tuesday a Candle Shal
Be Lighted and a Copy of This Prayer Lft in
the Church to Help Another Soul in Distress
and Support the Devotion to St. Michael. This
Miraculous Saint Grants Everything, No Mat-
ter How Difficult, Before the Termination of 9
Tuesday. G.F.
