Being Neighborly

By Cathy Salustri
Think of the Gulfport Neighbors as community superheroes.
When one Gulfportian realized a local family had run into
trouble and, as a result, their home had fallen into disrepair,
the Gulfport Neighbors came to the rescue, entreating fellow
Gulfportians to donate their time and expertise to help their
neighbors even if they'd never met them.
"Serious illness caused them to fall in some hard times,"
Neighbors Vice President Margarete Tober said Saturday
morning. Almost 20 people donated part of their Saturday
to help paint the house. Home Depot donated the paint,
the Citgo donated Cuban sandwiches, and Stella's, Marsha
Warner and McDonald's also donated food.

Dan Liedtke
Takes Second
Term Unopposed
Three of Gulfport's five
elected officials "win" their
seat without opposition.
By Cathy Salustri
Despite posts to the contrary
on the Gabber's "Gulfport Ideas
and Opinions" Facebook group,
when the qualifying period
for Gulfport elections closed
Monday afternoon, not one
candidate submitted paperwork
to run against the Ward One
Dan Liedtke, who won the seat
two years ago by nine votes, will
keep the Ward One seat.
"I think there are a lot of
reasons why no one stepped
forward to make it a race for
Ward One," he told the Gabber
Monday afternoon. "But I am
not going to spend any time
thinking about that. I am only
looking forward and want to
continue working as a team
member with the rest of the
council and city staff on things
that will improve Gulfport."
With no one challenging the
current vice mayor for his
Ward One seat, three of the five
elected officials sitting on the
dais come March will not have
had a challenger, although
Councilman Liedtke did usurp
incumbent David Hastings
in the previous Ward One
"This city should be ashamed
of its lack of interest in
the operation of its city
government," seasonal resident
Nancy Kelly said on the
"Gulfport Ideas and Opinions"
page. "Very ashamed!"
Vice Mayor Liedtke remained
"[] believe there are more good
things to come," he said.

Emmolo 2009 Merlot Nappa Valley
In 2009, Mother Nature worked a miracle for the Emmolo Wine Company. The
growing season was marked by moderate rainfall in the late Spring followed
by mild temperatures. The perfect scenario for Merlot.
A rich example of Merlot with Pomerol-like characteristics. Our 2009 is
highlighted by layers of ripe berries, earthy notes and hints of smoke and
truffle on the finish. It's bold, yet balanced.
This is one of the two best Merlots I have tasted all year!

A Heartfelt Thank you
Dear Editor: Our heartfelt thanks
to everyone who came to our aid
last Thursday (December 5th) when
we were knocked off our bicycles by
a car at the junction of Blind Pass
Road and 75th, St Pete Beach. We
were so touched by your help and
support: calling 911; bringing us
water; blocking the traffic with your
car to restrict the traffic; and staying
with us while we waited for the
emergency services. Your kindness

is very much appreciated, and
reassures us (two Brits) that we have
chosen the right place for our part-
time retirement home! Amazingly,
nothing was broken, although we
suffered a few stitches, abrasions
cuts and bruises. Thanks too to all
those in the emergency services who
were on the scene to help us out, and
the staff at Bayfront Medical Center.
Hopefully we will be on the mend by
the time you read this.

tZtfioroscope Guide

By Holiday Mathis
Tall people have farther to
fall, rich people have more to lose,
and powerful people are vulnerable
to being conquered by the less
powerful at any moment. Maybe
you're not exactly where you want to
be, but there's a unique advantage
to your current position. Embrace it!
The winter solstice on December 21st
has us summarizing and celebrating
the main themes of 2013.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21).
One of the best reasons for declining
an invitation is that it's physically
impossible for you to be in two places
at once. This excuse requires a prior
commitment. Provide that yourself.
Your first commitment should be to
the things you find important. You
can put yourself first without being
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19).
Ignorant people can save the day, too,
but that's not the same thing as true
heroism. True heroes have a clear
understanding of pleasure, pain and
risk. Knowing firsthand what it feels
like to hurt and what's at stake, the
heroes still put themselves on the
line to do the right thing. That's you
this week.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18).
Feelings of stress, rejection and
awkwardness may seem like dangers
to avoid, but they are merely your
reaction to a thought and can
disappear as fast as you can think
a new thought. If you don't believe
this is true, try angering a tiger.
Acknowledge what real danger is,
and you embolden yourself.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). To
counteract this week's negative
effects of fashion and consumerism
(which may cause you to pay dearly
just to shape yourself into something
artificial and less than your best
self), restate the values you hold
sacred. Remember who you are and
where you come from. You are a
spirit in a material world.
ARIES (March 21-April 19).
It is only human to be at least
subconsciously aware of social
status. But the higher-minded

person realizes at a deep and basic
level that all beings are equal and
simply fulfilling different roles. The
person who stands up and cheers is
serving a purpose as important as
the one who is being cheered.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20).
Alexander Pope said, "All seems
infected that the infected spy, as all
looks yellow to the jaundiced eye."
What he failed to realize is that
the eye with the yellow hue doesn't
necessarily see in yellow hues. Be
careful not to assume you know how
other people experience the world
this week. When in doubt, ask.
GEMINI (IN.,v 21-June 21).
Someone has to be the quality-
control person, but it's not you
-- not this week, at least. It will be
far better for you to go forward in
blind optimism than to be critical
of the early stages of a project,
thereby making it impossible to gain
momentum. For now, enthusiasm is
more important than skill.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). It's
been proved time and time again
that pretending to be brave leads to
real bravery. There will be a call to
action this week. Don't worry about
whether you have what it takes to
answer the call effectively. Assume
that you do, take the next action, and
repeat. Before you know it, you'll be
handling things brilliantly.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Some
like to bond over shared leisure
time activities such as games
or adventures. This week you're
just not in the mood for that kind
of fun. Until you've handled all
that needs doing, you won't enjoy
playing around. Besides, working
hard together is the most effective
bonding experience you know.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You will
innovate in response to a demand
or possibly to your own feeling that
you need more choices. You'll create
a completely original solution, crack
a code or solve a mystery. Once
finished, there's no going back, and
the only way forward is to offer your
findings to the rest of the world.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Youlivein

the moment and create your destiny,
which could change at any moment
on your whim. Situations defined by
structure and predictability are not
ideal for you and could cause you to
feel inadequate or trapped. Where
can you be the independent, creative
force you were born to be? Go there.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). The
trouble with improving is that it sets
the bar higher. In other words, if you
make the same improvements you
made yesterday, they are not really
improvements; they're the new
standard. Keep this in mind while
planning your week. Apply yourself
to the area that most desperately
needs an upgrade.
This Week's Birthdays: This year
you'll prove that not all leaders are
egomaniacal. For you, it's not about
power and control, but about seeing
people do their best. You push them
to take risks, because you know they
secretly want someone to challenge
and motivate them. An expansion
of your personal life happens in
the next four weeks. In February,
you heed love's call. March reminds
you to maintain a sense of privacy.
Better to be a mystery than an open
book. Business booms in May and

The Rules of Regifting
Two weeks until Christmas. That's
right, I said it. Start thinking it over.
And while you're doing that, allow
me to whisper just one word in your
ear: Regifting.
The act of regifting -- passing on as
new a gift someone else gave you --
is controversial, but only because of
those who do a noticeably bad job of

it. After all, if every act of regifting
were carried out flawlessly, no one
would have the occasion to find it
distasteful. And that brings me to
the first Rule of Regifting:
-- Never admit to regifting. If your
friends know you're a regifter, you'll
find yourself in the unpleasant
situation of explaining why regifting
is different from not caring. Worse,
they will be suspicious of the gifts you

give them. It's best to keep regifting
completely to yourself.
-- Designate a location. Keep regifts
in a convenient, albeit secret, place in
a special box or cupboard with extra
wrapping paper and ribbon. Some
people shop for gifts in department
stores. Never underestimate the
utility of a gift stash that allows you
to shop at home.
-- Have a heart. Any gift made
especially for you or given to you
by a parent, child or close relative
cannot be regifted. Even if it's not
ideal, consider its sentimental value.
Don't even think of regifting. It just
wouldn't be right.
-- Label all regifts. Do this as soon as
you determine you've received a regift
to avoid the heartbreak ofbackgifting
-- giving someone a gift they gave
you. Simply make a detailed note of
where this item originated.
-- Check again. You cannot be too
careful. Let's say the gift is a book.
Take a peek to make sure it has not
been inscribed to you. If it's a boxed
gift, make sure the gift tag has not
dropped inside the box. These are the
careless acts that give regifting a bad
-- No telltale signs. A regift must
look brand-new. If the box is
damaged or shows any signs that it
has been opened, it does not qualify
as a regift.
-- Not remotely acquainted. Your
regiftee must not in any way be
acquainted with anyone in the circle
of friends or relatives of the person
who gave this to you. Refer to rules 3
and 4 above.
-- If there's a time you want to use
new paper and ribbon, it's on a regift.
Anything else is a dead giveaway.
-- No matter how you feel about it,
the practice of regifting is here to
stay. If you participate, do it well.
-- Want to make sure your gift
doesn't land in someone's regift
box? Put a little thought and effort
into it to make sure it is something
the receiver will truly enjoy -- not
just something that let's you mark
another name off your list.

and treat a disease, but who can
also calmly, compassionately and

patients to explain the situation and

loving husband,

Russell, and her children at her

KY and moved with her family to
Jamestown, NY, growing up across
the street from Russell. Their lives
would soon become a love story. After
Russell served four years in the Navy
he met her in Lynwood, CA where they
soon married in July 1955. In a blink
of an eye they had six children and in
1968 went into the pizza business. In
1970 they decided to move to St. Pete
and bought Mr. Pizza. They worked
side by side for 38 years and finally
selling Mr. Pizza in 2008. Anna was

Gulfport, FL and
Bantam, CT passed
away peacefully
in her sleep while
staying in CT with
her family. She was 93 years young.
She leaves behind four generations

of loved ones and friends, the world-
over. She was predeceased by her
husband, Anatole. Born in France,
she immigrated to the US in 1955
with her young family. They lived
for 20 years in Connecticut before
moving to Florida, she later spent
20 years in Hernando Beach and
then 20 years in Gulfport. As a child,
she welcomed Charles Lindbergh to
Paris, as he landed, after his historic
solo flight over the Atlantic in The
Spirit of St. Louis and saw him off,
on the aircraft carrier Memphis,
as he left. She developed a love of
flying and of travel at an early age,
buying a share of a small bi- plane in
her twenties and continued to travel
until this summer. July marked
her 32nd trip to Sainte-Anne-de-
Beaupre, Canada with her Ahearn
Memorial Pilgrimage Family. Living
in downtown Gulfport gave her
great pleasure. She would take her
daily walk into town and down to
the waterside park, where she could
sit on a sunny bench, chatting with
people and dog watching. In Gulfport
she was also a member of the Senior
Center, where she joined a group of
charity knitters and enjoyed visiting
with new friends over lunch. She
will be missed by all those who knew
her, but her spirit will live on in the

One Gulfport Seat, Two Candidates

When Ward Three Councilwoman Jennifer Salmon steps down this March,
one of two candidates will take her place as Gulfport's newest council member.
Paul Emerson Ray and Yolanda Roman both qualified as candidates for city
Ms. Roman works for Alkermes, a biopharmaceutical company headquartered
in Dublin; Mr. Ray works for Tropics, a software development company. (Note:
an earlier online version of this article indicated Mr. Ray worked for Valpak;
he listed Valpak as his primary source of income for 2012 on his statement of
financial interest. Mr. Ray explained he left the company last year and started
with Tropics four months ago).
Although the successful candidate will represent Ward Three, voters
throughout their city will decide the election.

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

ou could say my
motto is 'been there,
U- done that'," says Keith
Sanders, from Sanders
Law, P.A.
He says that for two
reasons. First, he says his
more than 20 years of
experience as an attorney
specializing in handling
"literally thousands" of
bankruptcies 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. 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 situation
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
colleagues who knew me and
go through the process
myself, that usually helps to
put people more at ease and
understand that I have been
there and done that

"You know, in 99 percent 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.
Department of Justice in
Atlanta. He is licensed to
practice law in both Florida
and Georgia.
"I like what I do because I
feel like I can help people get
a fresh start," said Sanders.
"Since the initial
consultation is free, you really
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 papers
concerning bankruptcy law in
general, ECF requirements
and new issues. He is a
former director of the
Bankruptcy Section of the
State Bar of Georgia.
The firm also handles
Short Sale negotiations,
defense against foreclosures,
wills & trusts, civil litigation
and personal injury.

Best Wishes For a
Wonderful Holiday Season


da & .b w

Despite what you may
have read or heard
recently, any debt
discharged in
Bankruptcy is a non
taxable event as far as the
IRS is concerned.

We understand this is not
an easy process or
concept to grasp. We
would like an opportunity
to explain in depth and in
terms that are relatable to
you, the homeowner, just
what this means and how
it could be of benefit to
you and your future.
Every situation is differ-
ent and therefore has a
different solution, so
please call us and let us
discuss what is best for
you, and then you can
decide what course to
take. Remember there
we would like the chance
to show those to you.
Only you can make the call.

Gya met ah' Oh my mind

a b o By Bill Northrop

The Irony In Subsidizing
here's a bit of irony in the
questioning and opposition to
Gov. Rick Scott's bring-jobs-to
Florida campaign. Hard questions
and opposition are coming from the
Tampa Bay Times (and the Democrat
party and/or Charlie Crist) in a good
series of news and opinion pieces
about the program which offers
liberal tax incentives, direct financial
aid, and agency support to a myriad
of businesses that pledge to start or
continue to grow their businesses in
the state.
Such programs aren't new. Other
states have them. Gov. Crist may
have had them. Indeed, competition
between the states is fierce. And, the
questions raised are always about
whether the programs are successful
or whether there is cronyism involved.
Success wipes out most questions.
Cronyism often depends upon the
perspective, but often the reality,
and rears its head particularly with
unsuccessful government/business
The irony here is that these are the
kind of projects that really irk many
people involved in the Tea Party
movement. Gasp! Tampa Bay Times
and Democrats allied with Tea
Partiers. Oh, horrors! Maybe they
should re-look at the re-look about
these plans. The complaint many
Tea Partiers have is that government
is wildly out of control, taking your
money and passing it out to political
allies, would-be voters, and causes
with dubious futures. It's not the
government's money and they spend
it accordingly without caution and
common sense.
This issue has arisen directly in
the Atlanta area where the Cobb
County Commissioners are pledging
to use tax dollars to subsidize a new
stadium for the Atlanta Braves
who will abandon their not exactly
old stadium in downtown Atlanta.
Shades of what's to come in St.
Petersburg when the Rays pull

out or both parties opt-in to some
government subsidized "build it
and they will come" location in the
region. In fact, the Tropicana field's
initial project was led many years
ago by the then publisher of the then
St. Pete Times. It sat nearly idle for
a number of years before someone
Another issue and another Tea Party
irony is whether the government
creates any jobs at all, or whether
it should brag, as Gov. Scott does,
"look what we've created". One of the
mantras of the Tea Partiers is that
government should get out of the
way, regulate only when necessary,
assist only by being cooperative,
and tax the least amount necessary,
and let the market determine who
wins and who loses. They contend
that all government can grow is
bigger government and a wealthier
and more powerful political class.
It is no coincidence that the lowest
unemployment and the wealthiest
area in the country is Washington,
D.C. and environs. The last major
spurt in growth and power and
wealth took place in the 1960s with
President Lyndon Johnson's "War on
Poverty". The New Deal and World
War II were two other spurt times.
Be that as it may, politics does
interfere and the same people who
decry a government role in direct
assistance to businesses often
also demand that governments
do something. For instance, what
is government doing about Rays
stadium? Once involved, its like glue
- hard to let go. A little bit pregnant
is another analogy. Once you buy the
concept, success is only measured by
whether you're the politically in guy
or the out guy.
I'm not a stranger to this field. I
and some business cohorts founded a
non-profit, non-political, corporation
in the early 1960s to promote
"industrial development". That was
when, in our area, Beaver Falls, Pa.,
steel was king 66 per cent of the
employment. We sought to diversify
the base while others dismissed us
because steel jobs would always be

there. Nonetheless, over a several
years period we raised $500,000,
helped a couple small companies
grow by providing gas lines to their
projects, and worked with others
to clear away red tape that often
entangles entrepreneurs.
Along the way, politicians jumped in
demanding we supply direct capital
to certain iffy projects (we didn't)
and then later established their own
competing government entities to do
what they wanted. In spite of that, we
did buy land for an industrial park
and built a spec building. I admit
we clipped the State government for
a loan to develop a water and road
system. We were mildly successful,
but diversification became moot when
the steel industry collapsed in the
1980s. Fifty per cent of the steel jobs
disappeared in five years as did our
non-profit and most of the economy.
The market ruled and rules.
It was a worthwhile effort support,
by and large, by private money. In a
nearby county where steel was not so
dominant, two private, profit making
developers are stillinbusiness. It'snot
an issue of doing nothing. Promoting
an area, clearing away road blocks,
keeping taxes low, building and
maintaining a good infrastructure
(roads, water, sewerage systems and
so forth) are appropriate government
functions. The difficulty comes when
other states or other communities
offer direct incentives (buildings, tax
exemptions, etc.). To compete or not
to compete.
Competing as a government unit
always, without exception, involves
politics and the high possibility of
favoritism, political contributions,
and cronyism. Bragging rights go
with this, but so does opposition and
criticism as Gov. Scott is finding
out. I'm not certain these projects
would get the same criticism if they
were done by Crist, now that he's a
Democrat or any other Democrat,
but the criticisms and questions are
Tea Partiers decry these
government/business partnerships
and a raid on the people's treasury.
It may not be that simple, but again
their criticisms and wariness are
also valid. In the meantime, there is
irony and some humor in the at least
temporary, virtual alliance between
the TP people and the TP haters.

Pete Beach Library Administrator
Roberta Whipple. At the time of her

ago, they decided to use the Roberta

renovation of the Library she loved
so much, but exactly how will not be
determined until after the renovation
has started. Please consider making
a contribution to the Fund.
Donations in any amount are
welcome, and can be mailed to
Friends of the St. Pete Beach Library,

You & THEJ

By Robert J. Myers, Esq.
Common Questions
of Law Wills
In the every day practice of law
at Akerson Law Offices, common
questions of law are asked by clients.
A few of the most common questions
which are responded to concerning
wills and probate are as follows:
Whoever makes a will in the State
of Florida must be at least eighteen
(18) years of age. Your will must be
in writing. You must be of sound
mind or be competent when you sign
your will. A will must be witnessed
in a special manner when you sign
it. This requires that certain legal

* Vision Correction
without Surgery
Optical Department
* Convenient Hours
L* Including Evenings

formalities be observed at the time
of execution of the will. Finally, in
order to be effective, a will must be
acceptable to the Probate Court.
It is not a good idea to cross out
words or add words to a will after the
will has been signed and executed. If
you write on the will after you have
signed and executed it, you run a
serious risk that some or all of the
will may be determined by a Probate
Court Judge to be invalid.
Everyone needs to have a will.
People with minor children need wills
so that they can name a guardian for
their minor children in the event of
death. A will enables you to decide
who gets your property. Without a
will, the laws of the State of Florida
decide who gets your real estate
and personal property. A will also
allows you to name who will manage
the distribution of your estate. This
party is known as the personal
representative under Florida law.

That depends. As long as your
current will meets the formal
requirements for a legal will in
Florida, it is "good" until you change
or revoke it in accordance with
Florida law. You can change your will
as often as you wish so long as you
comply with the legal requirements
concerning capacity, fraud, undue
influence, duress and meet the
formal requirements for a will in the
State of Florida. Both monetary and
personal changes in your life may
require a change in your will. For
example, divorce, marriage, birth
of children, and deaths of relatives
may be a reminder to review the
adequacy of your current will. In
addition, tax law changes and a
change in the amount or makeup of
your estate may make it advisable to
change your will to better serve your
legal heirs.

Independent Insurance Services
Trying to Keep More Money in Your Pocket: Insurance with Bentley DeNight Insurance
By Cathy Salustri

No one wants to hand over a chunk of their
hard-earned cash to an insurance company, but Jeff
DeNight makes the process as painless as possible.
The local insurance broker believes that although
you do need insurance, it should be the most
cost-effective coverage available.
That's why he made the choice to operate an
independent agency. His agency, Bentley DeNight
Insurance Services, maintains no affiliation with the
larger companies, preferring instead to contract with
smaller, highly rated, insurance companies where he
doesn't get pressured to sell only their policies.
"It's important to have an independent agent and
know, without a doubt, that they have your best
interests in mind, rather than quotas through their
parent company," he said.
Why does that matter? Why should you use an
independent insurance agency, such as Bentley
DeNight, instead of a big name, direct insurance
company? Does it really matter or save you money?
Yes, and here are two big reasons why:
Independent agents tend to be more aggressive
about exploring every available option for insurance
coverage instead of defaulting to their parent
company. Smaller companies often offer less
expensive coverage, and since an independent agent
has no allegiance to any one company, you know
they leave no stone unturned in finding the best deal
for your situation.
"With us, you can feel comfortable that we'd
exhausted every possible avenue," Jeff says. "I can
assure you we will investigate and evaluate any and
every private market option."
"Two, we're not aligned to any particular company
and don't have quotas," he said. Several years ago it
was hard to get any company other than Citizen's to
write a homeowner's insurance policy, but now
options have opened up for homeowners. Bonus:
hurricane season just ended, which means there may
be more options for your home.
Jeffs team is so thorough about finding coverage
that the day we interviewed him for this business
feature, Bentley DeNight was featured on Bay News
9. Why? Because they managed to secure alternative
flood insurance for his customers through a company
that was not the federal government's program,
Jeff says that option, Lloyd's of London, "is more
cost effective for most people in expensive flood
zones. Additionally, it's an option which nobody ever
had," he says.
"We're always just trying to find products in this
crazy insurance market that benefit our clients," he
said. For example, they sell auto insurance, and they
offer Traveler's, Hartford's AARP Program,
Progressive, Farmers, and some MAPFRE, a

Spanish company that has a smaller presence in
the US but is well-known worldwide.
"They (MAPFRE) are becoming very aggressive in
America, and they have been less expensive lately,"
he said. "They're highly rated and very customer
These are just some of the ways Bentley DeNight
works to save you money.
"I want to keep as many dollars in your pocket
from an insurance perspective," he said.
How can you take advantage of Bentley DeNight if
you are already with an agency? Call them and tell
them you want a "broker of record change". If they
deal with the company, they'll give you a form to
sign and they'll take everything from there. You'll
still have control over what company writes your
insurance, but you will have Jeff and his team
working to get you lower premiums and possibly a
more cost-effective insurance company.
They also sell auto, boat, renters, commercial, flood
and can write policies to insure jewelry, art,
antiques, or any collections you want to protect.
Give them a call today and see how many ways Jeff
and his team can save you money!
Wishing you a joyous holiday season!
