Form Filter not working

The following code is built on the Zend Framework.  The form and script work fine.  However, there is a weird thing that I don't understand.

If I use the form and choose Alhambra, it will return aprox 68 records.  I have to pagination set to 50 records.  When I click the next button, it returns the second 50 records from the DB as if I had not chosen a location.  THEN is I choose Alhambra again and filter, it will show me the additional records left for Alhambra.

What I want the script to do is if I choose Alhambra, see all Alhambra records (first 50) paginate to the next page and see the remainder of the records and then see all of the other records in the DB.  So I want to order by Alhambra and keep alhambra chosen when I paginate to the next page.

public function pnlsAction()
	$db = Stax_Db::getConnection();
	$where = array();
	if (is_numeric($this->_getParam('property'))) {
		$where[] = 'property_id = ' . $db->quote($this->_getParam('property'), Zend_Db::INT_TYPE);
		$this->view->property = $this->_getParam('property');
	//if(isset($_POST['property'])) {echo 'value="'.$_POST['property'].'"'; $where[] = $_POST['property'];}
	$where = count($where) ? $where : $this->getProps($db);

	$records = $this->user->getAllPNLs(implode(' OR ',$where));

	$paginator = Zend_Paginator::factory($records);

	$availableProperties = array();
	if ($this->user->access != Stax_User::ACCESS_ADMIN) {
		foreach ($this->user->getProperties() as $current) {
			$availableProperties[$current->property_id] = $current->name;
	} else {
		$availableProperties = $db->fetchPairs("SELECT property_id, name FROM properties WHERE active = '1' ORDER BY name ASC");
	$availableProperties = array(''=>'Select a Property') + $availableProperties;
	$this->view->properties = $availableProperties;
	$this->view->paginator = $paginator;	

array(56) { [""]=> string(17) "Select a Property" 
[42]=> string(8) "Alhambra" 
[49]=> string(7) "Banning" 
[1]=> string(7) "Barstow" 
[25]=> string(16) "Bedford Pancakes" 
[4]=> string(7) "Boulder" 
[19]=> string(8) "Brighton" 
[62]=> string(8) "Brockton" 
[22]=> string(8) "Brooklyn" 
[30]=> string(7) "Burbank"
etc...etc... } 

This is the form:
<form method="post" action="">
<div class="filter-bar">
	<?php if ($this->user->access != Stax_User::ACCESS_MANAGER) : ?>
	<div>Property: <?= $this->formSelect('property', $this->property, array('style'=>'width:150px'), $this->properties); ?></div>

	<div style="float:right">
		<?= $this->formSubmit(null, 'Filter') ?>

	<?php endif; ?>
