No. 2282 November 1 November 7, 2012 Boca Ciega High Has Fewer Students At Risk The Boca Ciega High School, as Principal Michael Vigue calls it, reports better student period of the school year. According to Principal Vigue, 87% of students improved their behavior, 56% improved their attendance and 52% improved their grades over last year. Attendance, behavior and grades are the three factors that contribute to whether or not the school system considers a student at risk for dropping out of school. Students who miss more than 10% of school days, related referrals to the school 2.0 (C) average have a greater school. Our collective efforts of monitoring, advisement, and goal setting with our students is continuing to help our students perform better, Principal Vigue At Midnight, They WriteJude Bagatti, Gulfport, and Marlene Szymona, St. Pete Beach, talk about writing at Small Adventures Bookstore in Gulfport. Small Adventures hosted the kickoff party for the Skyway Area chapter of National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), which starts every year at midnight on November 1 and ends at 11:59 the night of November 30. Writers of all types pledge to write 50,000 words in November. For more information visit NaNoWriMo.org. History Among the Funnel Cakes Jim Schnur signs a copy of his book about Pinellas history for a fan. While crowds snacked on funnel cakes, listened to music, and browsed holiday crafts, a little history snuck in. At Heritage Villages 34th annual Country Jubilee, crowds strolled through historic homes and learned about Pinellas history. Here, See Jubilee, page 3 Council Tied on Length of Terms With Gulfport Mayor Mike Yakes in absentia at Thursdays workshop, the council split evenly on whether or not to put extending the length of councilmember and mayoral terms on a voter referendum. Currently, voters elect councilmembers for two years and the mayor for three; Councilwoman Jennifer Salmon proposed a change would extend each of those terms by one year. The issue died because there was no majority decision to move forward.

12 Gabber November 1 November 7, 2012 LettersThe Boy Scouts and Discrimination Dear Editor: Thank you, Ms. Salustri and double thanks to Ms. to a practice that I brought up years ago. I am referring to the article on the Boy Scouts and their discriminatory rules. As a member of a local yacht club, we were introduced to the possibility of sponsoring a branch of the Boy Scouts, the Sea Scouts, by a member of the city council. I, like you, think that the Scouts do wonderful things for children. They teach wonderful boating skills, rules of the water, navigation, etc. What my question was then, and continues to be now, is why are gay children any different when it comes to learning and enjoying boating skills? I was appalled at the reaction I received when I voted against the sponsorship based on discrimination. I was told that I didn't like children (I have six of my own!) and members continued to speak over me as my reasoning fell on deaf ears. I was also shocked that this was coming from people of Gulfport. We are known for our diversity and understanding. Really? I don't believe that anyone chooses to be so different that they are shunned, ridiculed, and discriminated against. The Boy Scouts and the City of Gulfport should perhaps reread the Human Rights Ordinance, obey the law and do the right thing.Linda J. RayA Bit of a Quandary? Dear Editor : The historical tremendous to Gulfport. This discrimination and hatred. Many years ago I was a Boy Scout, my sister was a Girl Scout and my mother was a Troop leader.

Scouting has much to offer to many, hatred and discrimination is not should not be one of the offerings of Scouting. It seems that the city of Gulfport should be reevaluating how they wish to own this wonderful building. The city of Gulfport passed an HRO that prohibits discrimination, yet the Boy Scouts openly performs discrimination on a daily basis. I am prone to wonder, when Gulfport received the money to execute the necessary renovations to Scout Hall, was this money beholdened to another bill? It seems to this reader that Gulfport is in a quandary at the present time, for Scout Hall serves a necessary and useful function to the community, yet the discriminatory practices of the Boy Scouts is in direct is in opposition with many residents' of Gulfport feelings and attitudes. In no way should the young men of Boy Scouts be punished for an attitude that comes from the top, it is akin to punishing the son for the sins of the father. Hopefully, the Boy and discriminatory practice. Until then, I extend my hand to those boys in the Boy Scouts, they are learning some things that they will never forget. One thing that I have to remember, hatred is learned, it is not an inherent trait of the human race.Mark Grantham

Last year, Councilwoman Jennifer Salmon nominated Councilwoman Banno for vice mayor; councilmen Dan Liedtke and Sam Henderson voted against the nomination. The Mayor was not at that meeting, and the process lasted until he returned. I agree, Councilman Liedtke said, then joked: It was fun picking the last vice mayor [but] we went back and forth and we eventually got there. He added that last years vice mayoral selection would never have been an issue if the Mayor had been there that night. We would have been past it that night. If we want to change the process, thats something we can discuss, Councilwoman Banno said. The council will discuss the process but will not put the issue before the voters.

42 Gabber November 1 November 7, 2012 To Charter or Not to Charter: No Decision Y et Gulfport council debated but could not reach a majority on whether or not to ask voters if they want the police to be a chartered department of the city. a petition to add a voter referendum about whether or not the city charter should Last Thursday the council debated the merits of letting the voters decide whether or not the city should have a police department unless a majority of the voters voted to disband the city police. I think this is probably coming up because of everything we went through in regards to dispatch, Councilwoman Barbara Banno said. I stated back then and Ill state it now, I have no intentions of ever making a recommendation to get rid of our police department. However, she adding, making the police department a chartered division of the city and requiring a voter referendum to contract with an agency such as the Sheriff would give up control here and give it out to the people. Councilwoman Jennifer Salmon agreed. Councilman Dan Liedtke, whose campaign literature addressed the dispatch and police issues facing the city a year ago, said he favored letting voters decide. Id like to leave it in the peoples hands, he said. He said he saw a trend of cities outsourcing with the Sheriff but said he felt Gulfports police department offered more services. Vice Mayor Sam Henderson said he would like to see this decided by the people of Gulfport but added that he felt the city needed to clarify what constituted a police department. Councilwoman Salmon said she hoped that people understood what a chartered department would mean. Our goal in doing this, she said is not to bring back dispatch, its not to do our own forensics. Councilman Liedtke agreed and added he was concerned with whats left. Mayor Mike Yakes did not attend the workshop and the council, split evenly, opted to discuss it further when he could attend a meeting. Council will discuss it at the November 6 council meeting.

44 Gabber November 1 November 7, 2012 Somethin on my mind Somethin on my mindBy Bill Northr op B_Northr op@theGabber. com Romney: A Leader for Our TimesThe presidential election is less than a week away and you'll not be surprised that I'm for this is a decisive, "where are we going?" moment in history. Yes, it is about the economy, although not exclusively. The stark fact, however, is that without a vigorous private economy we cannot reduce our debt, we cannot have a strong infrastructure, nor a strong military, nor a clean environment, nor take care of the poor. And, the choice between the two candidates and their philosophies is quite clear. The Obama administration has had four years and we're still stuck replace the natural attrition of jobs. And, too many have retreated from the market place. The total number of people working is not enough. We're also stuck on nearly 8 per cent unemployment. It was no slip of the tongue when Obama said, "the His focus is on the government which he regards as the ultimate infrastructure modeled on European his administration on developing a monstrous, government centered, costly health care program, a massive, government focused stimulus bill, a bailout of the auto industry, a "green" agenda subsidizing, mostly unsuccessfully, solar and wind, tried to get through cap and trade to control the environment, cut off an oil pipeline from Canada, changed continually demonized the business sector, the coal and oil industry, and Federal Reserve Board printed more money, created a debt reduction commission (Simpson/Bowles) then ignored them, and created a Jobs Council with whom he never meets. He has made no secret of wanting to "fundamentally change America", an agenda that is likely to continue as he moves us more to the European model of a growing government sector, a shrinking private, but subsidized private sector, and a more government dependent populace, broader dependence on the UN, and a greatly reduced military. In European fashion, we can live with high unemployment as long as the government subsidies are high enough. Once those goals have said about foreign policy to Russian Prime Minister, Dimitri Medvedev, election." That applies to the domestic arena also. Four books, besides his own two Obama and support that thesis: "Obama's Rage" by Dinesh D'Souza, the basis for the movie documentary "2016"; David Maraniss' "Barack Obama: the story; "The Amateur" by Edward Klein; and Bob Woodward's new book, "The Price of Politics". The philosophies and the other two his actual performance. In contrast, Mitt Romney, a former (pretty liberal) successful governor of Massachusetts, and rescuer of the 2002 Salt Lake City Olympics, and successful entrepreneur, is a doer in private and public affairs, and an exemplary leader in his community and private life. His is a "make it work" philosophy and he works well with others to achieve those goals. He knows that the private sector is early the importance and promise of energy in this country. He also knows and understands the appropriate and necessary role of government in the economy. Fundamentally, Romney is a powerful and effective leader, something the country and the world needs now. He has sound personal and public principles, but is not weighted down by a rigid ideology. He understands that a dynamic, growing economy, balanced with restrained public spending, solves the problems with poverty, a strong infrastructure, and a strong military. He knows we can't spend our way out of debt, that we'll have to work our way out. He is also a respecter of other views and an accomplished negotiator, something that a democratic republic such as ours sorely needs. Whats on your mind?

50 Gabber November 1 November 7, 2012 Denis Frain is not your typical artist. By day, Denis Frain runs a wildly successful marina. Hes one of less managers in the world. He manages a $1.5 million marina and, after 20 years, understands the complexities of city government. At night, though, he unleashes his inner artist. This career bureaucrat albeit a watery, relaxed bureaucrat, but a bureaucrat nonetheless show the world what he sees out, in and around the water on an aluminum canvas. Ive always drawn, Denis says. He started carving out his watery dreams on aluminum when he commissioned a piece of art from a Key West artist who didnt come through as promised because his plasma cutter broke. Denis offered to rent the artist a plasma cutter on on condition: that the artist, who visited Gulfport frequently, teach him how to use it. After that, there was no going back to plain old paper for Denis. And he blames a shark. Like most artists, his art been up close and personal with them the snook, the second open water SCUBA dive 20 years ago. On what day (meaning you can see the bottom from the surface), he dove the Tramp Steamer, a wreck 60 miles due west of Johns Pass. On the bottom, he saw a shadow above him. He looked up and saw a shark. He and his dive buddy cargo hold of the ship and him. Thats when they saw the spots and realized it was two eagle rays and followed by two 50 pound cobia. It got me hooked on marine life, he remembers. I started drawing marine stuff on paper. Just doodle, no painting, just sketches. His fascination with aluminum metal sculptures grew when he went into a once he learned how to use a plasma cutter, he started creating all kinds of sea creatures. Theyre abstract art with a little bit of realism, he says of his work. He goes home from work or comes off his boat and has an idea in his head. Using charcoal, hell sketch it out on salvaged aluminum, then trace it over with a Sharpie. If he wants a certain look, he online and project it onto the aluminum and add his own creative touches. Denis uses a compressed air torch that creates a plasma gas to cut the aluminum, then burnishes the piece with a four and half inch sander, increasing the grit until he gets the look he wants. for example, takes him With two days off each week, he can only create so much. You can only get his art if you commission it or see him at a street festival. He shows his work about six or seven times a year, usually in the winter when the marina is slower and he doesnt feel bad taking a Saturday off. waterscapes in any studios, and he says he doesnt want to start putting his work in galleries. I have a full time job, and if I did that I think it would just be a little overwhelming, he says. I think it would just be too much, honestly. The work he has sells quickly at festivals, from the smaller undersea landscape. Despite his works popularity, he resists the title of artist. Im not an artist. I dont play the artist part, he says. I do very well. Not enough to give up my day job. I love what I do at the marina; I wouldnt trade it for the world. But the kids are getting older, and Im looking at the next chapter in my life, and it looks like it will be metal art for the near future Until, he adds I move on to something else.

Gabber November 1 November 7, 2012 51 Compiled by Cathy Salustri On Tuesday voters will decide whether or not they want the current police or the Pinellas County Sheriff (PCSO) to patrol St. Pete Beach. Weve collected reader and resident questions about what would happen if the city switched from its own police force to the PCSO. Heres what the city told us. The city will have 11 deputies patrolling the city daily. At the start the city plans to have one sergeant and two deputies between 3:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m.; one sergeant and three deputies from 3:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. and 1:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m.; and one sergeant and four deputies between 7:00 p.m. and 1:00 a.m. Yes. The Sheriff will offer all job. The Sheriff plans to assign from day to day. He says request a transfer, but he assured the commission he intends to keep the same men and women in the city on a regular basis. Residents that the Sheriff does this in their neighborhood. PCSO? complete their orientation period (between two and six months) they will have the opportunity to return to the city. You can still call it for but the line will ring at the Sheriffs dispatch, not the local police department. This is similar to what happens in Gulfport. says the city has not decided anything about the building yet. The PCSO will take possession of most of them the city. The PCSO will put its own cars on the street, and they will look the cars you see in South Pasadena, Tierra Verde, and Madeira Beach. No. The city will no longer have its own police station as residents know it now. However, the city manager says he anticipates a detective and the community city hall. No As 911 calls already go to central dispatch and not the city dispatch, this will have no impact on response time for emergency calls. the Sheriff? St. Pete Beach is a customer Residents and businesses can contact the PCSO directly or contact their commissioner or the city manager if they have concerns. None If you want to keep the city police, vote no. If you would rather the city contract with the Sheriff, vote yes.What You Need to Know About Switching to the SheriffA guide for St. Pete Beach voters, residents and business owners

Gabber November 1 November 7, 2012 53 To Serve and ProtectI really never thought Id vote to get rid of the St. Pete Beach police department, but thats what Ill do this Tuesday when I head to the polls. Its weird; I dont even want to vote to get rid of our police department. Part of me feels like I women who protect me, but more and more, I feel like its their police chief who owes them the apology. You see, while they all swore to serve and protect the community in which they work, their chief didnt seem to have their back. In February, 1998, Chief David Romine accepted the job as police chief in Winter Haven. He told the Lakeland Ledger he led by example. In July 2002, he resigned of whom were supervisors that his management style contributed to low morale. Romine himself said he expected to hear he wasnt out enough in the community. History has a nasty way of repeating itself. Look, the chiefs always been friendly to me, and theres no question he does some fantastic work with kids. I wavered on whether or not to submit this column, because, as a person, I like and respect the Chief. Im also aware that criticizing the police chief in a small town is really no way to win points, and Im pretty sure if we end up keeping the police Ive just made my life a living hell. But patrolling our little strip of paradise I blame the chief for that. Lets stop playing games about why theyre going away. Its not money, although the city will save a lot by switching to the Sheriff. Its not because we have a huge unfunded pension $22 million because that wont go away by getting rid of the force. Its not even because the police want to leave, because they wouldnt if the city hadnt changed the pension no hope of collecting a pension. The cops only want to leave because they know theyll likely never see their pension; if we hadnt changed the like crazy. This isnt my opinion; me. Some of them also tell me they blame the city manager, which I get, but before we all rush to cane Mike lies with the entire city while one would have hoped the police chiefs would lay with his men. Like the Winter Haven department, we have what I would call crippling morale issues, and no, the chief isnt out on the street nearly enough. He has failed to show us why we should spend such a massive chunk on our police department when the Sheriff will do just as well. Also, we have drunk drivers, meth hookers who offer oral satisfaction for about $13, and a pill trade on west Corey that reminds me of a beachy version of Drugstore Cowboy. What has the chief done about that? Well, when I asked him about west Corey, he told me the police hadnt done more because the city hadnt made needs to be told that we have a huge pill problem in Pinellas County? Two years ago we had one death per day resulting from prescription drug use; the county had a task force. But our chief chose inaction because no one told him to make it a priority. As for the rest of it, I have no earthly idea. The department doesnt exactly go out of its way to keep us informed, and by us I mean both the Gabber and the residents. Let me also say, I cannot fathom that this would ever happen in Gulfport. Why? Chief Rob Vincent goes out of his way to maintain a force to be reckoned with. He brags on his teams education and training. Hes active in the community, surveying residents money for the force through grants, and, although he doesnt live in the city, its not uncommon to see him here on his days off, eating dinner at OMaddys or dressed up like a pirate at a football game. His department publishes an annual report. He shows up at every city council meeting and, as such, can answer questions immediately should they arise. His every action distinguishes his department. I realize Chief Romine has a lot more experience, but he likely would have served his men and women better by taking a page from Chief Vincents book. Im not suggesting the St. Pete Beach police have lessor skills or training than Gulfport. Every proud of their work and loves their community. Even the one who tickets me from time to time is nothing short of courteous and professional. But the chief a chief who has his own retirement in the bag and apparently already collects a pension from south Florida has done precious little to help his own force. Theres nothing that can be done of that, I have personal experience. I wish all of them the best, no matter how the vote turns out this coming Tuesday. I wish you all bright futures, long lives, and secure pensions. And strong leadership. Contact Cathy Salustri at CathySalustri@theGabber.com. Or, quite possibly, the county jail, depending on Tuesdays vote. (7 27 ) 32 169 65 fa x 32 778 30Y our Community P aper Every ursday since 19681419 49th Street South, Gulfport

The use of Living Trusts has been effective for maintaining personal privacy and control outside of the court system. A Living Trust is also very useful for reducing estate taxes and for probate avoidance. A separate legal entity is created upon the formation of a Living Trust. This entity can own and hold both real estate and personal prop erty. Every Living Trust has a Set tlor or Grantor, a Trustee and Ben what these terms mean is important to understanding how Living Trusts work and how they are different from other types of trusts. The Settlor of a Living Trust estab lishes the Living Trust and signs the document creating the Living Trust. The Settlor controls what the Living Trust says and does. Living Trusts are revocable, that is, the Settlor can change or cancel a Living Trust at any time in her/his discretion. A Settlor is sometimes also referred to as the Grantor of the Living Trust. When you set up a Living Trust, you are considered to be the Settlor or Grantor. A Trustee of a Living Trust man ages the trust assets. When a Living Trust is created, assets should then be transferred into the trust. Deci sions concerning what property to buy, sell, mortgage, transfer or lease are made by a Trustee.
