A Special Thank You To Our Customers And My Second Family

S Pete's Barber Shop & Hair Design has been
Serving St. Petersburg for over 33 years. It's
a "family thing" since 1957 when my father,
Pat and his father, Angelo were both
Sbarbers in the area. I grew up here. I love
our community and enjoy coming to
work every morning! My wife, Karyn
and I have the best staff any small
S business owner could hope for. They're
our second family.
Growing up in St. Petersburg I had the opportunity to
spend my free time jl.i'iiw with my friends in the
neighborhood and dropping by the barbershop to see
Dad and Gramps busy cutting hair and giving a straight
razor shave and hot towel to their customers. When I
was about 7, I remember the guy next door telling my
dad, "I feel like a million bucks Pat!" I knew I wanted to
be a barber right then.
My dad knew everything that was going on in the
community, which can be good and bad when you're a
teenage boy. I learned early on to walk a pretty straight
line. Dad always told me to treat people like you want to
be treated and you'll always be happy and successful!

I have been very fortunate. We have grown from a
couple of barbers to a full service salon. Haircuts for the
whole family, manicures, pedicures, name it,
we do it! Always at an affordable price. And the most
rewarding thing that I have found is hearing our
customers leave happy with their new look!
Here are a few that have taken the time to let us know
(even days later):
"Best haircut in town ...$13."
~ Andrew R.
"My neighbor told me about Pete's. Great haircut and
no long wait!"
~ John S.
"Jen is amazing, everyone here is!!! Always friendly and
they even play country music, which I LOVE."
~ Andrew K.
"Great place to work."
~ Trish R.
"Been coming here for years. Pete is the man when it
comes to cutting the lettuce."
~ John L.

Welcome our
new barber...

Careful what
you wish for
Dear Cathy: I am writing in
response to your most recent "Hard
Candy". While I share your love for
Gulfport and the desire to see it grow
and evolve, I am worried that your
rendition of the future looks a bit too
- for lack of a better word cheesy. I
am quite happy to be able to hear the
birds chirp and the water lap while
enjoying Gulfport beach and pier.
As I read your piece, in my mind I
began to picture a three-ring circus,
and my first response was I'.% % %".
I love a calliope as much as the next
guy, but do I want to hear it all the
time? My feeling is absolutely not,
and I'm willing to bet most other
folks don't either. Yes, the funding

could be found; we have an amazing,
creative city staff that already does
wonders. But just because we can
do something, that doesn't mean we
Besides, what's so awful about living
within our means? Let's not get too
big for our financial britches. You
say poor, I say thrifty. My dad drove
a Plymouth for years. It ran great!
Besides, money can't buy character
and class. I've been to Key West's
sunset celebration. Gulfport is cooler.
I'm not saying we shouldn't improve or
think outside of the box when adding
to Gulfport's appeal as a destination
location but the Jersey shore, Las
Vegas, and Disney have already been
done let's be better than that.

Community to Review
Design Concepts
for Corey Avenue
As a follow-up to Community Design
Week last fall, concepts for the Corey
Avenue District will be presented for
review and feedback at a community
workshop on the evening of March
26th and at an open house before a
special City Commission workshop
on the evening of March 27th.
InNovember, ideas for improvements
to the Corey Avenue District were
proposedbypropertyowners, business
owners, and interested community
members during the three-day
"Community Design Week" which
consisted of workshops, discussions,
and other activities. A team of
community planners, landscape
architects, and transportation
engineers from Michael Baker Jr.,
Inc. then used these ideas as the
basis for the concepts they developed
and will present on March 26th and
Illustrations and graphics to be
presented at the meetings will show
proposed ideas that fall into three
broad categories:
* Circulation and parking concepts
include a couplet design for a set of
one-way segments that would circle
around Corey Avenue on Blind Pass,
75th Avenue, Gulf Boulevard, and
73rd Avenue.
* Urban design concepts include
streetscape, gateway, and wayfinding
improvements that are intended
to provide a more comfortable
environment for pedestrians,
beautify the streets, guide visitors,
and heighten the visual identity of
the Corey Avenue District.
* Catalyst development sites are
opportunities for development or
redevelopment that could boost
activity in the district and catalyze
private investment.
The community workshop on
March 26 will have a presentation
and structured activities for public
input on the concepts, while the open
house on March 27 will allow for

Heritage Village
presents 'Women of
the Florida Frontier'
As part of the Speaking of History
lecture series, author Elizabeth Neily
will present Women of the Florida
Frontier on Sunday, March 16. The
lecture will be held at 2 p.m. in the
Pinellas Room at Heritage Village.
Neily will focus on notable
contributions of women on the
Florida frontier. She will discuss
the Spanish conquistadores, Native
American women and other pioneer
women. Neily explores the world
around her through her lens. As an
undergraduate student at Dalhousie
University in Halifax, Nova Scotia,
she learned to look at the human
impact on the world. She then turned
to looking at the natural world, and
has been especially interested in the
subtitles of the seasons of Florida
where she now lives.
In 2007, Neily was appointed
the director of the Panama Canal
Museum in Seminole, which offered
her opportunity to travel to Panama
and other Latin American countries.
Her interests in indigenous people of
the Americas led her on interesting
journeys. Together with her husband,
she offers educational programs
about the culture of Florida's earliest
people and the native plants and
wildlife that sustained them.
Videos featuring previous Speaking
of History lectures can be viewed at Heritage
Village is located at 11909 125th

Calling All Churches

"If you saw a homeless child sitting on the doorstep at your church, would
you give this child shelter"? asked Tom Cioffi of Family Promise, a nationally
acclaimed program for homeless families with children coming to St. Petersburg.
He was speaking to representatives from local churches and members of the
community at an outreach event February 18th hosted by Central Christian
Church in St. Petersburg.
Family Promise of Pinellas is working to partner with churches andvolunteers
in the St. Petersburg area and is committed to helping children and their
parents move from homelessness to independence. Families are sheltered
while services are provided to secure employment, social services and housing
for the family.
"This is an amazing program. We're ALL IN" said pastor Rich Franz from
Central Christian Church in St. Petersburg.
The next outreach event is Tuesday, March 18th at 7:00 p.m. at Central
Christian Church, 6161 22nd Ave. N. in St. Petersburg. All area churches are
invited, as well as members of the community.
Family Promise was founded over 20 years ago and is embraced in 182
cities across the country. The home office is in Summit, New Jersey. The
organization's mission is, to help homeless and low income families with
children achieve sustainable independence. "We've served about 500,000
people in the last 20 years and most of our clients are children" said Cioffi.
According to the Florida Department of Children & Families' Council on
Homeless Report released in June 3013, there are 3085 homeless children in
Pinellas County and 63,685 in the State of Florida, however, there is always a
question of "under-counting" children because parents fear their children will
be taken away if they're homeless.

increased balance each contribute
to preventing falls and injuries.

By Holiday Mathis
The week kicks off under the
full moon in Virgo, the sign of
improvement. If your desire to
improve yourself is constant and
yet you can only stomach so much
self-help information, you may be
responding to internal wisdom.
Improvement happens as much in
relaxation as it does in activity.
Much like reaping the benefits of a
good workout, to absorb information,
your body and mind must have time
to relax and assimilate the new.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Like
rapper Eminem, you've made friends
with the monster under your bed,
and you've also made friends with
a few monsters lurking around your
workplace (although you won't be
inviting them to dinner anytime
soon). You'll have greater influence
over what happens because these
monsters" will listen to you.
ARIES (March 21-April 19).
Considering too many things that
need to change at once and becoming
obsessed with what you cannot
change causes mental overwhelm
andparalysis. Helpful thinking takes
practice. Breathe, relax and take it
one task at a time. You'll achieve an
attitude of "cool" and transform your
scene bit by bit.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20).
Seeing the words "never," "always"
and "no" triggers something in you
-- you want to prove them wrong.
You won't be micromanaged. You
simply can't bring yourself to obey
rules that are too constricting and
controlling. You'll be the rebel who
breaks free. The similarly oppressed
will thank you.
GEMINI (I.ny 21-June 21). Let
nothing interfere with your efforts to
feel good. This week that will include
bucking a few cultural norms, as
there are certain common practices
that don't suit you at all. When you
make a plan that is specific to you,
it will keep you from the harmful
habits that so many fall into these
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Before
you embark on a task you're not so
keen on, consider that doing nothing

at all has its benefits, too. Beyond
recharging and resetting your mind,
you'll also catch the attention of busy
people, some of whom will attempt
to put you to work. If the work looks
interesting, you just might agree!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Much will
depend on your salesmanship this
week. Getting to "yes" has to do
with alighting on the magic question
that will inspire someone to share
objectives and activities. It's not
only the question that will matter;
it's also the comfortable rapport that
comes first, putting your subject in a
receptive frame of mind.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). If you
have a goal, you'll make astounding
progress toward it. Ultra-aware
of your environment, you'll utilize
everything at your disposal to
manifest your aim. If you don't have
a goal, you'll still keenly be aware of
your environment and your feelings
about it. Let that guide you toward
your purpose.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). The
person who physically shows up but
doesn't engage with mind or heart
is not really present. This state of
absent presence is worse than not
showing up at all, because it is as
deceptive as a Halloween decoration
-- a fake ghost blowing in the wind.
You demand more from yourself and
others this week.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21).
Your spiritual well-being will be an
important focus. The wonderful thing
about a spiritual practice is that you
don't have to add it to your list of
things to do; you can do it wherever
you are. Being spiritually aware
and present will be an enhancement
of, not an addition to, the many
activities on your schedule.
21). You can just look at people and
clearly see what they need to move
forward in life. However, your ideas
may not match up with what they
really want. Find out what people
have done, are doing and want to
do. When you're absolutely sure you
understand, you'll be able to help
and earn money at the same time.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19).

Teachers come in many forms. This
week they will come as circumstances
and events instead of as humans.
Some of these events will inform,
nurture and protect, while others
challenge you by knocking you down.
Lessons are learned either way,
though you will learn quicker with
the latter method.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). One
new relationship will open many,
many doors for you. Learning about
another person will be enjoyable
work. It won't be satisfying enough
for you to simply find out the history
and relevant facts -- you'll need to
remember them, too. You'll build
bonds on what you discover and
commit to memory.
This Week's Birthdays: You'll
reach a kind of professional finish
line and finally have the chance to
do work you thoroughly enjoy, while
delegating the tasks you find less
than savory. Relationships shift for
the better in April, though at first it
may not feel that way. June brings
a reunion, and you'll jump back into
each other's lives like no time has
passed. August is about celebrating
your health and doing the work to
jump to a new fitness level.

Gulfport Little League!
It's not over yet!
By Sharon Butler
Last Saturday, March 8th,
Gulfport Little League hosted their
Opening Day Ceremony. Let's not
make it the last one under the
name "Gulfport Little League". By
2015, District 5 will merge Gulfport
(GPLL) and Southwest Little
League (SWLL). This could happen
as early as September 30, 2014. At
this time, each league will need to
elect their new board of directors.
GPLL and other leagues have been
combining together to get an ample
number of players for teams over the
past several years. The difference
between combining with a league,
and merging is tremendous!
Combining means: taking players
from up to 3 different leagues at a
time, and making a team or several
teams in a division. The benefit of
this is, at tournament time, there
are a sufficient number of children
to make a true and competitive All
Star team for each division. Since
the number of children playing has
decreased district-wide, this is a
viable option for not only GPLL, but
other leagues as well! Each league
still retains their charter, board,
volunteers, etc., and is enhanced by
combining with the other leagues.
Merging means: taking two or
more leagues and making one new
league. The old league or leagues
will cease to exist. The new league
will apply for a new charter and
elect a new board of directors. This
does not mean that an equal number
of board members from the former
leagues will be representing each of
those leagues. Unfortunately, the
new board can exist of only members
from either of the leagues, which can
be an unfair representation.
Mr. Liberatore states that "nothing is
forever" when discussing the merger

between GPLL and SWLL, however,
once these leagues are disbanded
and merged into one league, there
will no longer be a "Gulfport Little
League" or a "Southwest Little
League". If the enrollment increases
and we want to have our own league
again, we will have to reapply for a
new charter, and new boundaries
will have to be designated all over
again. There is no guarantee that
the new charter will be granted.
Yes, there was a time when GPLL
had over 200 players registered, but
those days are long gone. Due to the
amount of other activities available
to children nowadays, we will not
see those numbers again.
The only positive aspect for GPLL of
merging would be an ample number
of coaches and volunteers available,
in which GPLL is in need of now.
The increase of the boundaries would
require people living on the beaches,
to travel to Gulfport for games and

practices. Families living on the
beaches would not benefit from this
merger, as they are actually closer
to two other league's fields. If you
look at a boundary map, note that
the northern beaches of SWLL,
are closer to Gulf Beaches Little
League. The southern beaches of
SWLL are closer to Baypoint Little
League. The middle of the beaches
of SWLL is closer to GPLL. There
is no guarantee that Lum Atkinson
Fields will be your home field as it is
now for some of the families living
in Gulfport. GPLL has more than 50
children registered. If remappingg
the remaining area of Gulfport"
to include the rest of the city adds
between eight to ten players, it could
be a positive outcome for GPLL
without adversely affecting SWLL.
Instead of disbanding both leagues,
maybe a compromise can be

Incumbents will Keep their
Seats in South Pasadena

Tuesday afternoon, Art
Penny, Max Elson, and
Harris Blair waited outside
South Pasadena hall, waving
to passers-by and greeting
voters (candidate Robert
Small had called it a day and
headed home). Throughout
the race, challengers Harris
Blair and Robert Small
worked to get their message
out to the public, appearing
at times to run as a two-
person ticket, despite South
Pasadena's practice of
electing each commissioner
In the end, voters chose
to retain the two current
commissioners: Art Penny
and Max Elson. 2,830 voters
cast 1,024 votes for Penny
and 724 for Elson; Small
and Blair received 541 and
531 votes, respectively.
South Pasadena has one
voting precinct: 214. Most
South Pasadenians 2,091 -
voted early, while 702 voted
on election day.

In keeping with the
true meaning of the word
"commission", each South
Pasadena commissioner
oversees one aspect of the
city's functions, such as
publicworksorfinance. Every
year, the commissioners
change their area of focus, so
at an upcoming commission
meeting the commissioners
will decide which areas each
will oversee.

Editor's note: Several years
ago, the Gabber mistakenly
reported that South
Pasadena voters had elected
Art Penny mayor; he had,
indeed, won his race for city
commission, not the mayoral
seat. Penny told the Gabber
Tuesday afternoon that his
mother keeps the misprint
proudly framed. So, for
Mrs. Penny's mother only:
Congratulations to Florida's
newest governor, Art Penny!

time to find out. Call us for a free consultation and see the

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

" T ou could say my
motto is 'been there,
done that'," says Keith
Sanders, from Sanders Law,
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.

SPoints On Pets

Passing on
Useless Advice
Oscar Wilde wrote, "The only good
thing to do with good advice is pass it
on; it is never of any use to oneself."
Good advice, bad advice, utterly
useless advice -- people love to pass
it on.
In working with people and their
dogs, I hear all kinds of "surefire"
strategies for shaping canine
behavior -- tactics passed down from
generation to generation, neighbor to
neighbor, stranger to stranger. And
there's little chance any of it ever
worked for any of the people who so
generously share it.
Recently I was talking with a woman
who has an 11-week-old puppy who
is nipping. She had something in
the neighborhood of four family

What's he trying to say? "Please don't

"Tap your dog on the nose and
say 'bad bite.' "Bad bite"? I'm an
English-speaking human being and
I don't even know what that means.
You might as well say "tuna on rye,"
because it's all the same to your pup.
What's worse, "tapping" your dog
on the nose -- whether with your
hand or the much-vaunted rolled-up
newspaper -- has a better chance of
making your dog hand-shy, fearful or
even aggressive than it does of curing
him of any "problem behaviors."

a clue about this one, please be in
And one of my all-time favorites:
"Ask him: 'Why are you biting your
mother?" Did she give birth to this
pup? Is something going on that I'm
not aware of? And is someone out
there waiting for their dog to respond
to this question?
Besides the senselessness, the
cluelessness, the dangerousness and
the flat-out lunacy of some of this
stuff, the real problem with all of this
advice is that it's based on a fallacy.
A puppy's nipping isn't a behavioral
problem; it's a physical problem. Just
like babies, puppies teethe. They nip
because the pressure provides relief
from the pain. So the objective isn't
to punish the dog or to deter the
undeterrable. Your job as the pup's
guardian and as someone who loves
this little creature is to provide him
with something that will offer even
more relief than your fingers or the
leg of that dining chair.
Ice chips and frozen treats help.
But one of the most effective tools
costs little to nothing and works
beautifully: the frozen washcloth.
If you have a teething puppy in the
house, wet a handful of washcloths
and put them in the freezer. When
your pup starts nipping -- and he will
because it's perfectly natural -- give
him a frozen washcloth to chew on.
The cold will feel good against his
sore gums as it works as a numbing
If only there were something equally
effective at silencing the passers-on
of bad advice.

Walden Presents "Did Someone Say Murder?"

[ A ............

Care to attend 'murder night'? Join an array of wacky characters as they dine
and watch the world's greatest detective, Rathbone, solve murders right in
front of their eyes. There's only one catch anyone can be the victim, and you're
on your own in finishing the evening alive. Can Rathbone solve the mystery
before the killer runs out of murder victims? Can you solve the mystery before
Rathbone does, or will the killer manage to escape the evening and kill again?
Murders, false identities, spies, double-crossings, tricks, surprises, thrills and
a most scrumptious chicken-broccoli Alfredo dinner propel this mystery to its
deliciously shocking ending.
Walden School, a private middle school in Gulfport, will present the play,
"Did Someone Say Murder?", by David J. LeMaster on Thursday, March 20
and Friday, March 21. This is a dinner theater production and a meal of
chicken-broccoli alfredo will be served. Seating is between 6:30 p.m. and 6:45
p.m. Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for children (10 and under). Please call

More Unwed Whites
Than Blacks
statistics have significance,
but the numbers behind the
statistics mean even more. For
example, examine statistics about the
American family, specifically births
to unmarried mothers, a rising trend
in black, hispanic and white families.
It is accepted that this is a crisis in
black (African-American) community
where 72.1 per cent of children are
born to unmarried women. For
hispanics the figure is 53.4 and for
whites 35.9 per cent and all rising.
That was the focus of President
Barack Obama's new initiative,
"My Brother's Keeper" announced
a couple of weeks ago and aimed
squarely and exclusively at the
minority community. Working with
a coalition of private foundations

and government, he proposed broad
programs aimed at pre-kindergarden,
third grade reading, not kicking
students out of school for disciplinary
problems, re-establishing the civil
rights era voting rights laws, and
incentivizing employers to train
and hire these disadvantaged young
The White House also proposed
to expand the earned income tax
credit and public housing funds to
cover workers who do not care for
children. This is aimed at helping
absent fathers on the theory that
getting money out of them is a futile
enterprise. A New York Times writer,
Eduardo Porter, contends that all the
present policy of pursuing dead-beat
fathers is to drive them further into
That, he contends, as others do,
drives black men into crime and the

the same thing). That's why, he says,
incarceration rates have multiplied
by five over the last 35 years. Most
imprisoned are young black men and
half of those have children. Help,
rather than punishment, "might
actually help low-income men and
women offer their children a better
All well and good. Present policies
don't appear to be working. Try
something new. However, there is a
flaw in the use of the statistics. Look
at the numbers. If we use numbers
rather than percentages, the real
crisis is in the white population.
The number of births to unmarried
white women is 15 times the number
of blacks or hispanics combined, or
30 times either of the groupings. In
all there are an estimated 1,600,000
births to unwed mothers. If we
assume the racial birth rates are the
same (although blacks have more
abortions than whites), and the
percentages of race stay the same
(w,77.9 per cent, b, 13. land h, 16.9),
there will be 1,246,000 white births
of those totals.
Messing with statistics is always
dicey, but however one cuts it, there
are far more whites than blacks or
hispanics, and the crisis, by numbers,
is every bit as serious for whites as
for others. The pressure, however, is
on society as a whole. If it is accepted
that absent fathers are at the root
of poverty, crime and incarceration,
then this is more than just a minority

You & THE


By Robert J. Myers, Esq.
Why Buy-Sell
Agreements are
Important (Part 1)
If you own a company and have a
partner or partners, have you ever
considered what would happen
should one of you die?
Hopefully, you won't have to face
this situation, but if you do, a buy-
sell agreement can allow for the
continuance of the company as
well as providing financial security
for you, your partnerss, and your
family. A buy-sell agreement not
only protects against the death of a
partner but also provides financial
protection if a partner retires, resigns
or becomes disabled. Let's look at a
situation where there was no buy-sell
agreement in place.
Ms. Smith and Mr. Gonzales are
equal partners of XYZ Services
Company. They have determined
that XYZ is worth $2 million. They

each own $1 million of AB3C stock and
they each draw an annual salary of
When Mr. Gonzales died, his stock
worth $1 million will pass to his
estate. However, the stock will pay
no dividends because all earnings
are retained by XYZ. Therefore, Mr.
Gonzales' family will be left with a
non-income producing and illiquid
asset. Mr. Gonzales' only return from
XYZ was his salary which, of course,
ceased upon his death.
The Gonzales family could appeal
to Ms. Smith to pay dividends on
the stock, but why would Ms. Smith
want to pay dividends? Salaries are a
tax-deductible business expense but
dividends are not. Also, dividends
would have to be paid on all
outstanding shares, including those
held by Ms. Smith.
Ms. Smith also has a potential
problem. The Gonzales family holds
half of XYZ's stock--what effect
will this have on the long-term
development plans of the business?
Another problem that the Gonzales
family and Ms. Smith have is how to
determine the value of XYZ stock.
An interest in a closely held company
is often an unmarketable asset and
placing a value on the stock for estate
tax purposes could be difficult. Many

factors affect the fair market value
of a closely held business, including
general business trends, the outlook
for the specific industry, the financial
condition of the company and its
earnings power. While Ms. Smith
and Mr. Gonzales may have felt they
knew the value of XYZ's stock before
Mr. Gonzales died, unless the value
is in a formal agreement the taxation
authorities are likely to get closely
involved in the valuation of XYZ's
stock and try to justify its highest
The valuation of the stock will create
difficulty for the executor of Mr.
Gonzales estate. The executor will
likely want to place the lowest value
on the stock in order to minimize
estate tax liability. However, estate
taxation is not the only concern when
placing a value on a closely held
business. The step-up in cost basis
that is afforded to all capital assets
at death can result in no income tax
being imposed on the sale following
death. This has to be scrutinized
rather closely in light of the estate
tax rate that would be paid if the
value of the business was increased.
If an agreement on the value of
XYZ's stock cannot be reached, the
matter may have to be resolved in
court, wasting considerable time and
A properly designed buy-sell
agreement can help prevent many
of these problems. It can provide
liquidity for the family of the
deceased, ensure the continuance of
the company, and establish the value
of the company's stock.
In our next article, we will explore
together how a buy-sell agreement

Ten Things You
Realize Before the
Sun Rises in Gulfport
I run. Actually, that's not quite true,
because running implies speed,
and I've had old men with canes
and advanced osteoporosis beat me in
races. I, uh, lope. So I'm not a runner...
I'm really more of a loper.
I lope best before the sun rises, for
two reasons: one, if I don't do it first
thing, I don't do it. Two, it's the best
time in Gulfport: dark and peaceful. I
try to time my, er, runs, so that I finish
up right as the sun streaks through
the sky. I don't have to be pleasant or
"on" or working; I can take 45 minutes
to try and breathe (it's harder than it
sounds, even at my snail's pace) and
ruminate on... things. I have a lot
of noise in my head; I struggle with
running so much that I have to focus
on breathing and remaining upright,
which kind of silences the voices, albeit
just for a while.
Remember, I'm not a runner; my
5K goal is to beat the 5K time of an
asthmatic 97-year-old coal-miner.
As far as getting a medal goes, isn't
very much of an achievement. But I
do travel slowly enough to see things,
yet just fast enough to clear my head.
Here's what I notice while most of
Gulfport sleeps:
1. We have the cheekiest cats on the
Most places, the cats scamper
delightfully away as you run towards
them, but in Gulfport? In Gulfport,
the cats alternate between annoyed
ambivalence and giving off a definite
"I will cut you" vibe as I pass. One cat
in particular, a fluffy white and grey
thing who haunts Bo-Tiki's sidewalk
before dawn, plays a rather unnerving
game of chicken as I approach. He
stares at me with soulless anger, and
this more than anything else causes
me to step up my pace. Which is no
easy task in that area, because believe
it or not...
2. We have a hill.
Laugh if you must, but for this Florida
girl, the run down to the water from
my Tomlinson-area home is sweet.
The run back is uphill. Seriously.
Gabber March 13 March 19, 2014

According to Lola (the name I've given
the annoyingly cheery voice on my
Map My Run app), the beach path is
15 feet above sea level and my home is
38. I don't need flood insurance, which
is great, but that run home is not my
finest hour. This is the stage in my run
where I start to realize...
3. Our world is bigger than we think.
I mean, we're pint-sized compared
to most other cities, but running
alone in the dark gives me a different
perspective on how far I could get
without a car if, say, we had a fire. It
is exactly one mile from my house to
O'Maddy's, and it feels like forever on
foot. I bike it all the time, and I walk it
fairly frequently, too, but alone in the
dark, when I hear my running app's
disembodied voice announce my one-
mile mark, it depresses me. If zombies
were chasing me, not only would I be
too slow to make it to the next town, I
lack the stamina to make it to the next
town. Fortunately for me, Gulfport
lacks zombies or any other prey-
based criminals. It's a good thing, too,
3. If you want to commit a traffic
offense, do it around 6:50.
Since the time change, I can get
away with running a little later in the
morning, and that's when I see the
police leaving the station at the start
of their shift.
4. Except please don't, because
crossing Gulfport Boulevard is scary
And on that note, kudos to our mayor
and city staff for getting a crosswalk
with warning lights at Beach and
Gulfport Boulevard. Now can we have
lights at the one on 15th? Not that I
want lights everywhere, because one
of the coolest things about our city
before dawn is...
5. Gulfport is super dark.
I mean, OK, compared to Ocala
National Forest, no. But to a woman
running before dawn? Dark. Not that
I want more lights; I don't. On a clear
morning it seems like I'm looking
straight through to the end of the
Universe, with thousands of stars
hanging in the middle of a whole
bunch of navy blue nothing. This does
not happen in Clearwater. Of course,
all that dark can be a little unnerving,

especially when you run by a park
bench and it moves. Which brings me
6. Homeless population: one.
I run down Shore and Beach
Boulevards, and a myriad of side
streets, and while I see vans and
campers in the beach parking lot, I've
only ever seen one person sleeping
without a roof over his head. Trust
me on this; I don't exactly travel fast
enough to miss anything. It's an odd
combination of sad and scary to run by
a bench in ('-. 'r i' Park and see that
someone's made a nest. The reporter
in me wants to stop and find out who
he is and how he came to be sleeping
on a park bench, but the survivalist in
me feels as though waking a stranger
on a park bench while it's still pitch
black out isn't the smartest move.
That's not to say I don't feel safe; I
totally do. Usually my attention goes
to the touches of whimsy and beauty
that pop up along my route, even in the
dark. And my unofficial determination
8. The Stetson area makes for some
nice running.
I only know this because at one point
it was my goal to make it to my friend
'-. I '-."s childhoodhome by my halfway
mark, and she grew up in that area. A
side effect was noticing how many big
trees hang over some of the streets.
This week's election aside, I think we
overlook that quadrant of the city,
which is a shame. It's sleepy, unlike
my other favorite place to pass, which
is Shore Boulevard. that's where I
9. Williams Pier never seems to close.
No matter what time I trot by, I've
yet to find it anything but a patchwork
of bait buckets and five-gallon pails,
cast nets, fish bits, and the requisite
grizzled fishermen clenching cigarettes
in their teeth. It's the most active part
of the city, which I don't mind a bit on
my otherwise-peaceful pre-dawn runs.
Well, mostly peaceful, because...
10. Someone in the downtown area
has a rooster.
Seriously, guys? A rooster? This is
not Key West. Also, they're mean. And
illegal. And disconcerting as hell to
hear when you are just getting into
a nice, meditative groove. Thank god
they can't run. Can they?
Because if they can run at all, they
can catch me.

A Stillwagon Moon Over Gulfport

Keith Stillwagon adds flowers to the bottom of his mural, part of the art project sponsored
by the owner of the Gulfport Square shopping plaza.
"I've been wanting to do one on Gulfport Boulevard for 15 years," mural-
ist Keith Stillwagon said as he added flowers to the bottom of his mural on
Gulfport Boulevard. His mural, as of yet unnamed, is in keeping with the
-' 'r.J. Is theme, "Full Moon Over Gulfport".
Although the effort initially struggled to get local artists to submit designs for
consideration, the committee comprised of Liberty Tax franchise owner Mi-
chelle Kotewa, So49 participant Phil Reed and So49's vice president, Andrea
Royce selected three winning submissions.
Around the corner from internationally known muralist Stillawagon, painter

*- Meet the Artist
By Daniel Hodge
To help commemorate its 13th anniversary, Domain Home
Accessories & Gallery will showcase new work by an artist
who has been featured at the business since its opening 13
years ago. Gulfport artist Diane Posnanski-Bragg will offer
a large assortment of new fused glass works, including
decorative and functional pieces and jewelry for display and
sale. Diane will also talk to visitors about the evolution of
her art work, as well as her travels as an "itinerant" artist for the last several
years. This installment of Domain's monthly "Meet the Artists" event will take
place on Saturday, March 15th from 6 to 10 p.m. at 3129 Beach Boulevard S.
in the Gulfport Waterfront District. Live entertainment by jazz saxophonist
Henry Ashwood will also be featured during the evening, and complimentary
wine and hors d'oeuvre will be offered Free birthday cake to celebrate the 13th
anniversary of Domain will also be served.
Native Floridian Diane Posnanski-Bragg grew up in the Tampa Bay area
and has been inspired by the tropical plants, flowers and wildlife she has
encountered here since childhood, creating art reflecting the nature around her
as she grew up. She attended the Art Institute of Ft. Lauderdale and after 25
years of "conventional" work in the fields of graphic and advertising design, she
returned to her more creative roots, working with Postich Stained Glass Studio
in Largo. She soon established her own independent glass studio, and then
partnered with her former husband working with stained and fused glass, as
well as glass and metal sculpture. The pair travelled extensively, participating
in and accumulating awards at art shows throughout the country, including
annual appearances at the Ann Arbor Art Fair and St. Petersburg's Mainsail
Art Festival.
Now as a solo artist with Diane Bragg Studio, the shapes, colors and essence

By Cathy Salustri
City of Gulfport
Q; Does anyone know if there are limitations in setting up your own
house-based gray water filtration system to use on your yard ? Juju
Stevens, via Facebook
A: Gulfport allows gray water systems, with a few restrictions.
"It cannot be dumped directly on the ground," City Manager Jim O'Reilly
said. Additionally, the city building code stipulates the collection system
include an overflow into the city sewer, as well as a decontamination
"Gray water includes waste from the bath, lavatory, and sink, except
kitchen sink waste," O'Reilly added. "Kitchen sink (including dishwasher)
must empty directly into the sewer system."
Finally, the city requires a permit so it can review each design on a case-
by-case basis. This is to make sure the system complies not only with the
building code, but that the system doesn't put Gulfport in violation of its
National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit.
Call the Gulfport Community Development Department at 893-1024 for
more information.

all roads so that I can attain my goal, you who
give me the divine gifts to forgive and forget
all 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 andmine.
