Arms up, arms down, arms up, arms down. This
was the sight at the 2005 Tax Certificate Sale on
Wednesday June 1 at the Sunstar/EMS building in
Largo. Hundreds of bidders will test the endurance of
their arms in the next week, as they attempt to bid for tax
certificates on properties in which taxes were not paid.
The auction for the tax certificates began on Wednesday
and is scheduled to last through June 7.
The auction is not a sale of land. It is a sale of a
legal instrument that works as an enforceable first lien
against property that is created through the sale of a tax
certificate.
"It is an investment for buyers who want to make
money off of the interest they purchase the tax certifi-
cate at," said Sam McClelland Deputy Tax Collector. "It
is a good investment, but we still tell the buyer to
beware."
Many of the buyers who pay the property taxes for
those property owners who can't are various investors
and banks. Large companies often train young people to
go to the auctions to bid on certain properties listed.
"Many of the investors buy many properties
because the interest on one property is minimal and
probably won't make them much money," said McClel-
land.
The sale is conducted in a reverse style auction with
participants bidding the interest rate downward starting
at 18 percent. Bids are accepted in increments of a min-
imum of 1/4 of 1 percent. The properties usually get bid
down to % percent making the investment minimal, but
depending on the properties acquired along with their
value, can be worth the risk.
The property taxes that are owed to the county by
the property owner are shifted to the tax certificate
owner, once the auction is over. This helps the county
from losing significant tax dollars in unpaid taxes.
"This allows the tax collectors to collect taxes
regardless of the situation of the property owner," said.
McClelland. "Pinellas County is the most highly urban-
ized and residential county in the state. Two-thirds is


residential and that is where the county gets most of its
taxes."
This year, just fewer than 16,000 property taxes
were unpaid. On the day of the sale however, that num-
ber dropped to 13,000. That equates to $31.5 million in
tax revenue the county will now receive from the bid-
ders.
"The people that can't pay their property taxes
sometimes have good reason," said McClelland.
"Sometimes they lose their job or get divorced or have
medical problems. Having the tax certificates allows the
county to get their money quicker while giving the
(property) owners about three years to pay off their
debt."
There are occasions where bidders won't pay for the
tax certificate, or the property won't get bid on. In these
cases the county takes the financial hit.
Investors around the state will bid not only on the
13,000 plus tax certificates in Pinellas County, but vari-
ous counties around the state as well. With /4 percent
interest spread over many properties, the investors can
make a good amount of money with little risk.
Most of the owners have homestead and live in the
houses that have tax certificates auctioned. The proper-
ties with high value and high taxes are the ones that
interest investors most, particularly the homes in which
the owner still lives. This is because the investors
believe the high taxes will be paid eventually because if
they don't, the owners will lose their homes.
To be apart of the auction, buyers are required to
obtain a buyer number. Only one buyer., number is
issued for each tax identification number. To obtain a
buyer number, a prospective buyer must provide the tax
collectors office with a completed IRS Form W-9 and
post a deposit in the amount of $2,000 for each number
assigned.
The remaining auction dates are as follows:

June 3, 2005 Friday 8:30a.m. 5:00p.m.
June 6, 2005 Monday 8:30a.m. 5:00p.m.
June 7, 2005 Tuesday 8:30a.m. 5:00p.m.

Courtney Bailey knew that she
wanted to be a teacher while she was
still in high school. She worked at
the after school program in her high
school and fell in love with teaching.
"After working, even if it was a bad
day, I would be happy when I got
home," she said.
University of South Florida St.
Petersburg student Bailey, 20, is pur-
suing bachelor's degree in elemen-
tary education. She said that she
wants a job that makes her happy.
Bailey hopes to be one of
10,000 teachers that graduate from
the state's four-year college and uni-
versities a year.
With only 10,000 new gradu-
ates a year, Florida is experiencing
teacher shortage. In fall 2006, Flori-
da will need 30,000 new teachers in
its school districts. A rise in teacher
retirements, increase in students and
the demands of the 2002 constitu-
tional amendment to reduce class
size leads to the teacher shortage.
Florida's need for teachers in 2006
will amount to 20 percent of the
state's existing work force of
150,000 teachers. The state will
need 20,000 teachers each year
beyond 2006.
Florida needs all the help it can
get.
One of the major ways Florida
adds teachers is from bringing in
thousands of teachers every year
from other states. Educator prepara-
tion institutes are another way to add
teachers to Florida schools. A new
year-long program that gives college
graduates teaching suklls in a frac-
tion of time is still in works, Some
school districts have programs that
quickly train non-teachers.
"We build relationship with
Florida universities to recruit new
teachers," said Pinellas County.
School District Director of Human
Resources Harriet Konstantinidis,
who is in charge of hiring secondary
and special education teachers. She
also said that the school district.
recruit "talented substitutes who
later obtain their Florida Teacher
Certification Examinations
(FTCE)."
The new federal education law
defines a "highly qualified teacher"
as one who has obtained full state
teacher certification or has passed
the state teacher licensing examina-
tion and holds a license to teach in
the state; holds a minimum of a
bachelor's degree and has demon-
strated subject competence in each
of the academic subjects in which he
or she teachers in.
Konstantinidis said that Pinellas
County school district expects to
hire about 600 teachers over the next
three months for elementary and
secondary schools. In total, more
than 900 teachers will be hired for
2005/2006 school year.
Bailey is aware of the teacher


shortage.
"It hurts children because teach-
ers are not able to assist as much as
they would like to," said Bailey, who
went to a small school with crowded
classrooms. "Students rarely get one
on one with their teachers during
regular class time."
Pinellas County school district
is the seventh largest in Florida and
22nd largest in the United States.
With 145 elementary, middle, high
and specialty public schools, it
serves more than 113,000 students.
About 36,000 students are enrolled
in postsecondary, career, technical
and adult education programs.
There are 8,600 teachers in
Pinellas County school district.
Konstantinidis said that most of the
teachers hold professional Florida
teacher certificate but that when
there's teacher shortage the district is
forced to hire outfields. "They work
very hard to get eligible," she said.
"We make sure that they have an
agreement that in a year they will get
their certificate." About 70 to 80
teachers are outfields. Kostantinidis
said that the school district is work-
ing very hard to keep those numbers
low.
Florida ranks '29th in the aver-
age teacher pay with $40, 281 and
21st in the actual average beginning
pay with $30,481, according to the
2002/2003 salary survey done by the
American Federation of Teachers.
As of July 2005, Florida's average
starting pay will be $35,000. But,
Konstantinidis says that money is
still one of the biggest reasons for
teacher shortage.
"It's hard to compete with pri-
vate sectors and business world,"
she said. "It's hard to attract a math-
ematician, when he'll be making
$35,000 a year." Konstantinidis said
that teachers' pay will remain within
that range first ten years of their
career,
Despite the low pay, Bailey still
opted for teaching as her calling.
"I wanted a job where money
didn't matter," Bailey said. "I would
rather go home happy than go home
miserable with a packet full of
money."
Konstantinidis also said that
teachers don't get enough respect.
"Our culture is challenging. Our stu-
dents are challenging. There are 20-
year-olds who are saying "Do I real-"
ly want to teach?"" said Konstantini-
dis.
Steve Micklo, associate dean of
College of Education at USF St.
Petersburg, says that one of the rea-
sons for the decline is the negative
image that is put on teachers. "It
seems today that if you happen to
have a classroom full of bright stu-
dents, then you are considered ai
effective teacher," he said. "If yoi
happen to have a classroom of strug-
gling students who do not do well on
standardized testing then you are not
doing your job. It's frustrating."


Park Place begins to take shape

Photos by Scott Afasano
The movie theater at Park Place is expected to open in about a month. Other stores will open between now and October including Target Super Center, BonWorth and Michaels. There
are also negotiations with Marshalls, Office Depot and DSW. Construction of the project began early last year when Boulder Venture South LLC purchased the old ParkSide mall for $12
million.


Bidders at Pinellas County's Tax Certificate sale hold up their numbers as they try to gain the certificates of people's
properties who haven't paid their property taxes. The sale, held in Largo, began on Wednesday, June 1 and could
continue through next week. Investors pay the homeowner's taxes, and in turn, receive interest on the certificate when
the property owners finally pays it.

Bricks across the Bay highlights
national trails day celebration
Pinellas County Commissioners, county park
staff and Friendship Trail officials will come
together on the Pinellas County side of the
Friendship TrailBridge on Saturday, June 4 at 10
a.m. to celebrate the installation of the initial
order of bricks and distance markers.
The public is invited to attend the celebration
that takes place in conjunction with National
Trails Day.
S Individuals and businesses that sponsored
bricks and plaques on the trail are invited to come
and view their commemorative markers.
Pinellas County Commissioner Calvin Har-
ris, who chairs the Friendship Trail Oversight
Committee, will address celebration participants,
and County Commissioner Robert Stewart, a
member of the oversight committee, will attend
the ceremony.
The Friendship TrailBridge was developed
after a committee urged Pinellas and Hillsbor-
ough county officials to save the old Gandy
Bridge. The two counties took over joint owner-
ship from the state. The recreational facility
opened in December of 1999 as a millennium
event, with citizens from both counties joining
hands across the bay.
The Pinellas County Parks and Recreation
Department reports that more than 500,000 walk-
ers, joggers, runners, bicyclists and fishermen use
the bridge annually.


Comcast gives teacher of year
awards to three family literacy
teachers
Governor Jeb Bush today announced this
year's Governor's Family Literacy Initiative
(GFLI) grant recipients at the Governor's Man-
sion. The grants, totaling $686,416 will be dis-
bursed to 21 organizations to begin or expand
existing family literacy programs.
"We're committed to literacy in Florida. It's
the key to opening up the doors of opportunity
and achieving success in life," said Governor
Bush. "I applaud our family literacy providers for
their dedication to making literacy a family value
in their communities. Together, we're making a
real difference for Florida families."
The goal of GFLI is to help parents become
better prepared for the workforce, while helping
their children become better prepared for school.
Since 1999, GFLI has funded the start-up or
expansion of 115 family literacy programs
throughout the state and has helped more than
9,000 Floridians adults and children learn to
read and further their education. Attendance rates
are higher than the national average for basic edu-
cation classes, due to these programs meeting the
needs of all family members.
According to annual research of program
participants by GFLI, 92 percent of parents have
demonstrated improvement in their own reading
skills; 96 percent of the parents say they have
become better education advocates for their chil-
dren, through the knowledge and confidence
gained in their own academic achievement; and
89 percent of the parents feel more confident
about helping their children with homework.
Additionally, while most participants have lived
in this country an average of eight years, more
than half indicate a language other than English
as their primary language and only 25 percent of
the parents speak English in their homes.
The Governor also announced GFLI's plans
to work with the Lastinger Center at the Univer-
sity of Florida to embed teacher-professors in two
family literacy programs to study and determine
best practices. Results will help develop a repli-
cation plan for professional development that will
be shared with family literacy programs across


Florida in 2006-07. Additionally, in a second
pilot this year, the Initiative will work with fami-
ly literacy participants in Collier County to estab-
lish an internship program that provides vocation-
al counseling, paid jobs and the opportunity to
learn new skills.
Comcast, a strong supporter of GFLI, also
announced their annual teacher of the year award
recipients, this year given to three family literacy
teachers. Winners include Catalina Cano of the
Hispanic Unity of Florida, Jennifer Jones, of the
Alliance for Families with Deaf Children, and
Kathleen Quinlan of the Manatee Technical Insti-
tute. Comcast gave each teacher's literacy pro-
gram $3,000 for supplies, in honor of each teach-
er's exemplary performance this past year.
Governor Bush was joined at the luncheon
ceremony by First Lady Columba Bush, Lt. Gov-
ernor Toni Jennings, Comcast's General Manager
KC McWilliams, Chair of the Governor's Family
Literacy Initiative Scott Ellington, University of
Florida Lastinger Center Director Don Pember-
ton, University of Florida College of Education
Dean Catherine Emihovich, corporate supporters
and family literacy recipients.

UF expert cautions parents to be aware

of child identity theft


By: Julie Walters UF


Identity theft is not just for adults. Offenses
against children are on the rise, and a University
of Florida consumer education expert says the
problem can actually be worse for younger vic-
tims.
"Many parents don't realize that child identi-
ty theft exists, which means the crime often goes
undetected for years," said Mary Harrison, a pro-
fessor with UF's Institute of Food and Agricultur-
al Sciences.
"Parents need to know how to recognize child
identity theft because early discovery can greatly
reduce the impact on victims," she said. "If the
crime is reported promptly, the thief has less time
to run up debt, and authorities have a better
chance of finding evidence."
For children under 18, the number of identity
theft complaints reported to the U.S. Federal
Trade Commission increased by more than half
between 2003 and 2004 from about 6,400 cases
to 9,800. At the same time, the percentage of child
victims among all identity theft cases increased
from 3 to 4 percent.
In some respects, identity thieves treat per-
sonal data from children and adults the same way,
Harrison said. Most often, they use stolen infor-
mation to conduct fraudulent financial transac-
tions, though they sometimes use it to obtain gov-
ernment documents such as driver's licenses, or
give it to police when stopped or charged with a
crime.
But when it comes to credit card fraud, child
identity theft differs in an important respect:
Thieves necessarily create new credit accounts for
child victims, whereas most cases of adult identi-
ty theft involve existing accounts, she said. That
can make the crime worse for child victims.
According to a 2003 FTC survey, victims of
new account fraud spend four times as much time
and almost five times as much money clearing
their records compared with victims who had only
existing accounts accessed. Victims of new
account fraud are also far more likely to encounter
other problems, such as denial of credit, loss of
utility or phone service and criminal investigation.
Safeguarding a child's identity requires many
of the same precautions parents should take for
themselves but with a few twists, Harrison said.
Preschool-age children are unlikely to be
approached by .scammers, so parents must bear
the burden. of protecting documents and other
information, she said. Parents should avoid carry-
ing their child's Social Security card, and should
complain if their child's school uses Social Secu-
rity numbers to identify students.
For older children, the popularity of personal
computers in homes and schools creates a risk


they will be victimized by Internet scams such as
"phishing," Harrison said.
"Even bright children who are very comput-
er-savvy may not understand the dangers of being
too free with their personal information," she said.
Harrison recommends that parents monitor
their children's Internet use, talk to their kids
about identity theft and tell them what informa-
tion they should and should not share with others.
Parents should also monitor incoming mail
for children of all ages because credit card offers
or even debt collection notices can indicate credit
activity is taking place already, said Linda Foley
of the Identity Theft Resource Center, a nonprofit
organization based in San Diego, Calif.
"Getting a credit card offer addressed to your
child does not necessarily mean there's a prob-
lem," Foley said. "If you have opened a bank
account or a frequent flyer card in your child's
name, your child may receive mass-mailings from
credit affiliates. Parents should call the company
that has the child's information to see if they're on
a marketing list."
Receiving debt collection notices in'your
child's name is a much more serious indication
that your child's information is being'misused, and
warrants checking the child's credit report with
the three major credit reporting agencies, Experi-
an, TransUnion and Equifax, she said.
Harrison said parents should consider check-
ing their children's credit reports every year, espe-
cially if they suspect their personal information
has been compromised.
"Ordering an annual credit report for your
child increases the likelihood you will uncover
child identity theft in a timely fashion," she said.
"If no credit accounts have been established in
your child's name, the credit agencies will inform
you that your child does not have a credit report."
A new federal law will make free credit
reports available to residents of Southeastern
states on June .1. The law provides for a gradual
roll-out of this benefit; West Coast consumers
were the first to gain access.
Parents who discover evidence of child iden-
tity theft should .immediately report fraudulent
activity to one of the three major credit reporting
agencies and ask that a fraud alert be placed on the
child's credit record, she said. Parents should also
contact any creditors listed in the child's credit
report and file a police report.
*Harrison said it is vital for parents of child
victims to understand the seriousness of this crime
and take action promptly.
"A person's credit score is becoming so
important now not just for getting credit, but also
for obtaining insurance, finding housing, and
applying for jobs," she said. "ID theft can have a
very far-reaching impact."


A Hitchhiker's Guide to the Moon: An astronaut on the Mon


Courtesy of NASA

Imagine trekking in a lunar rover across miles of the
Moon's rough surface. Your mission: to explore a crater
with suspected deposits of ice.
In every direction, the gray terrain looks more or
less the same. Wouldn't want to get lost in this place!
you think to yourself. You arrive where the rover's digi-
tal map says the crater should be ... but it's not there!
In a flash, you realize that your map is wrong. The
crater's true position must be slightly different. But how
.different? A kilometer? Ten kilometers? In which direc-
tion?
Mission aborted..
The story is fiction, but it raises a real-life issue: the
need foi accurate maps of the Moon's terrain.
According to NASA's Vision for Space Explo-
ration, astronauts will return io the Moon as early as
2015. This is a key step en route to Mars and beyond. On
,the Moon, which is practically in Earth's backyard,
astronauts can learn how to live on an alien world before
attempting longer voyages to other planets.
However, our current maps of the Moon are not


very precise. In some areas, hear Apollo landing sites,
for instance, the locations of craters ard ridges are well
known. They were extensively photographed by lunar
orbiters and Apollo astronauts. But much of the lunar
surface is known only approximately.
"If you ask 'where is a crater on the far side of-the
Moon?', chances are there's probably many kilometers
of uncertainty in its true positioning," says David Smith,
a scientist at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center.
Even on the near side of the Moon, Smith adds, errors in
the true global position of features may be as large as a
kilometer:
To improve this situation, NASA plans to send a
high-precision laser altimeter to orbit the Moon and cre-
ate a 3-dimensional map of its surface. When complet-
ed, the map will be so accurate that we'll know the con-
tours of the Moon better than we do some remote
regions on Earth. Astronauts will be able to use it like a
USGS hiking map.
The laser is named "LOLA," short for Lunar Orbiter
Laser Altimeter. It's scheduled to launch in 2008
onboard the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter spacecraft.
LOLA works by bouncing pulses of laser light off the


lunar surface as it orbits the Moon. By measuring the
time it takes for light to travel to the surface and back,.
LOLA can calculate the roundtrip distance. LOLA is
capable of timing pulses with a precision of 0.6 nanosec-
onds, corresponding to a distance error of no more than
10 cm.
"In a sense, the Moon is an ideal object for making
these kinds of observations because it has no atmo-
sphere to interfere with the propagation of the laser puls-
es," says Smith, who is the Principal Investigator for
LOLA.
LOLA will map the Moon for at least a year, orbit-
ing from the Moon's north pole to the south pole and
back every 113 minutes. As it orbits, LOLA will send
out laser pulses 28 times per second. Each pulse consists
of 5 laser spots in a cross-like pattern spanning about 50
meters of lunar surface. Altogether, LOLA will gather
more than 4 billion-measurements of the Moon's surface
altitude.
After taking into account uncertainties in LOLA's
orbit, the overall error in the true elevation of lunar fea-
tures should be no more than a meter, while the true hor-
izontal locations of those features should be known to


within 50 m or. less. The next-best laser ranging map,
made by the Clementine mission in .1994, had an error
of 100 m vertically and a.horizontal resolution as coarse
as 30 km.
This new thap, combined with high-resolution
images of the lunar surface taken by a camera onboard
the spacecraft, will offer by far the best 3-dimensional
model of the Moon ever created.
Uses abound.
"A detailed knowledge of the shape.of the Moon,
how and where it diverges from a perfect sphere, can tell
us a lot about how the Moon formed," notes Smith.
It'll make a great video game, too. Imagine flying
around a photorealistic 3-D. moonscape, over hills, in
and out of craters, around Apollo landing sites. Astro-
naut training, anyone? )
For people actually living on the Moon, LOLA-
style maps will be indispensable. Imagine getting caught
outside, moonwalking, during a solar flare. Check your
LOLA map for the nearest cave: instant shelter. Disori-
ented by mtioondust? LOLA has.your bearings.
Misplaced a crater? Unimaginable.

UF study: Gas prices and interest rates


hurt consumer confidence


By Cathy Keen UF

Florida's consumer confidence fell two points to 89 in May, reflecting
concerns about high gas prices and rising interest rates, University of Flori-
da economists report.
The biggest drop was a four-point decline to 86 in the component mea-
suring perceptions of personal finances now compared with a year ago. That
component had shown some signs of improvement the month before. Three
other components fell by one point: perceptions of personal finances a year
from now to 95, expectations about the U.S. economy over the next year to
76 and perceptions about whether it is a good time to buy big ticket items to
109.
The only component to rise was perceptions of the U.S. economy over
the next five years, which rose two points to 82.
"Consumer confidence among Floridians is now four points lower than
it was in May of 2004," said Chris McCarty, director of the survey research
center at UF's Bureau of Economic and Business Research, where the
research was conducted. "Overall, consumers are reacting negatively to the
high price of gasoline and energy prices in general. Rising interest rates are
also putting pressure on households carrying large amounts of debt. Partic-
ularly at risk are those with adjustable rate and interest only mortgages that
are seeing the cost of housing rise."
The lower consumer confidence comes at a time when employment
finally seems to have picked up after the long period of low growth follow-
ing the 2001 recession, McCarty said. Gas prices have temporarily declined,
although they have been high and likely will increase again this summer,
and the stock market also has experienced some recent gains, he said.
Sales of existing and new homes have hit record levels, but that actual-
ly may reflect an increase in buying for investments, rather than people buy-


ing homes to live in, he said. "I think it is safe to say that we are in a deli-
cate time right now in terms of consumer confidence," McCarty said. "There
are certainly some positive signs that things are getting better. But as has
been the pattern for some time now, things seem to be getting better for
those with higher incomes than for the majority of people with moderate to
low incomes."
The decline in confidence in May was mostly among lower-income
households, McCarty said. Respondents from households with annual
incomes of less than $30,000 registered a seven-point drop in consumer con-
fidence, from 81 in April to 74 in May. In contrast, respondents from house-
holds with incomes $30,000 or more registered a two-point increase to 98.
The biggest factor in the decline for lower income households was in
the component measuring personal finances now compared with a year ago,
which fell by 12 points to 61. For higher income households, it remained at
100. Respondents over 60 also experienced a sharp decline in that compo-
nent, from 76 to 69.
"Moving forward, I do not expect any large increases in consumer con-
fidence, at least until the price of gasoline falls significantly, or consumers
permanently factor the higher prices into their household spending," he said.
The research center conducts the Florida Consumer Attitude survey
monthly. Respondents are 18 or older and live in households telephoned
randomly. The preliminary index for May was conducted from 424 respons-
es. The error rate is plus or minus 5 percent.
Consumer confidence is designed to help predict buying patterns by
measuring the mood of consumers toward purchasing. Although other eco-
nomic indicators also predict buying patterns, consumer confidence tends to
be available sooner.
The index is benchmarked to 1966, so a value of 100 represents the
same level of confidence for that year. The value of the index is in compar-
ing changes over time rather than looking at an isolated month.


Gas prices have been
on the decline in recent
weeks. Last month, the
average price for
regular unleaded gas in
the Tampa Bay area was
$2.20 a gallon. As of
Wednesday, June 1 the
price had dropped to
$2.06 a gallon and Race
Trac on Park Blvd in
Pinellas Park was
offering some of the
lowest prices in the

Homicide-suicide in elders a



growing concern


By: Randolph Fillmore USF


A study by University of South Florida
researcher Donna Cohen and Julie Malphurs of
the Miami Veteran's Administration Health Care
System recently published in the American Jour-
nal of Geriatric Psychiatry (13:3) shows homi-
cide-suicide among the elderly to be "an emerg-
ing public health concern."
"Homicide-suicide events are rare relative to
homicide and suicide," said Cohen, a professor at
the Louis de la Parte Florida Mental Health Insti-
tute.
"But the rate is increasing, especially among
older persons."
The object of the study, says Cohen, was to
identify the factors (age, race, method of death)
that differentiate older married men who kill their
wives from oldermarried men who commit sui-
cide only. Researchers examined case facts in 20
spousal homicide/suicides in Florida involving
men overage 55 over a two year period (1998
through 1999) and compared those men to older


men who only committed suicide.
"We found that the men who committed
homicide against their wives and then suicide
either displayed more domestic violence against
their wives or were caregivers to their wives,"
said Cohen. "Those who committed suicide were
more likely to have health problems themselves
and were receiving care from their wives. Men in
both categories had suffered depression."
According to Cohen, depression played a
role in both kinds of events, but the factors in
homicide/suicide \cases included the caregiving
strain.
"The men who killed their wives and then
themselves were generally older than their wives,
who were probably unknowing, victims," con-
cluded Cohen. "These events were not altruistic
or based on suicide pacts. Their motivations are
complex. Ours was the first study to case-control
test the hypothesis that the difference between
homicide/suicide and suicide alone in older men
will differ on psychosocial factors."
The study found that 25 percent of homi-
cide/suicide perpetrators had a history of domes-


tic violence while only five percent of the control
suicide only subjects had such a history. Forty
percent of homicide/suicide perpetrators were
caregivers for their wives but none of the suicide
subjects were caregivers. All of the homicide/sui-
cide perpetrators used a firearm. Nationally 72
percent of older men who commit suicide use a
gun.
Cohen emphasizes that depression plays a
significant role in both, as does medical illness,
which contributes to 60 to 90 percent of suicides
in older persons.
"The interaction between factors, such as
marital-relationship variables and illness should
be examined in future studies," said Cohen, who
also serves as the director of the Clinical Division
of the American Association of Suicidology, an
organization dedicated to the understanding and
prevention of suicide. "The aging population will
challenge researchers, clinicians and other health
care professionals to identify these factors and
then design appropriate interventions for this vul-
nerable group."

Slumping Ray of the week Seth McClung had an ERA of 11.09 heading into
Wednesday's game against the Oakland A's. McClung has been a part of a
pitching staff that had the second highest ERA in the American League as of
Wednesday at 5.54.
Singing the Lou's
The Rays' 19-34 record after Tuesday's game was their worst under Lou
Piniella after.53 games. Rays completed May, however, with an 11-17
record, one win shy of the club record 12 set in 1998.

Sanchez stars in May
Outfielder Alex SaTchez led the American League in batting for the
month of May with a .372 average. His average was also tied for second in
the majors for the month with Mike Cameron and trailing only Bobby Abreu
(.396). It is the fourth best month for a Ray in the history of the franchise.

Hollins tops all AL Rookies in May
Damon Hollins, fresh from a May 2 call-up, led all AL rookies in May
in average (.325), runs (19), stolen bases (5), home runs (6), RBI (15), total
bases (48), slugging (.600), and was second in OBP (.368). His six home
runs set the club mark for most homeruns in one month by a rookie sur-
passing Bubba Trammell who had five in August 1998. His 15 RBI tied the
second most by a Ray's rookie in a month and was just two off the club mark
of 17 by Rocco Baldelli, July 2003.

Great Scott!
Rays lefty Scott Kazmir led all rookie pitchers in May with 30 strike-
outs, which was tied for fifth most overall in the American League. His 35.2
innings pitched for the month led all major league rookies.

Drive em' in
The Rays were batting a major league best .310 with runners in scoring
position, heading into Wednesday's game against the Oakland A's. The Rays
had two players in the top ten in that category as well: Julio Lugo 6th with
a .373 average and Nick Green 7th with a .370 average.

Continuing on the offensive
The Rays were third in the majors in batting at .277 heading into
Wednesday's game. They were also second in the majors in stolen bases
with 49, four behind the Chicago White Sox.

At the Trop
At 16-14 the Rays are off to their best start ever at home. The differ-
ence between their home and road win percentage (.403 heading into
Wednesday's game) was the major's largest margin between home and road.
The Rays were 8-3 in one-run games at home and 1-6 on the road. They-
have scored a major league-high 162 at home.

Indy driver to throw first pitch
St. Petersburg resident and Indianapolis 500 winner Dan Wheldon will
throw out the ceremonial first pitch on September 15 when the Rays take'onr
the New York Yankees. Wheldon also won the St. Pete Grand Prix held in
March.

Slumping Ray of the week: Seth McClung
In his last two appearances heading into Wednesday's game as a relief
pitcher, McClung had given up five.earned runs in 3.1 innings of work with
a loss, whiled tallying five walks. On the season he has an ERA of 11.09. ?

Shining Ray of the week: Josh Phelps
In his last 10 games heading into Wednesday's game, the designated hit-
ter was batting .300 in that span. In that same span he had three home runs'
and seven RBI.


The Longest Yard provides miles of entertainment


By Scott Afasano
Staff Writer
Adam Sandler continues to show his ability to mix comedy with sports
in the 2005 remake of The Longest Yard. Sandler's Happy Madison pro-
duction company, along with director Peter Segal, used the premise of the
1974 film with a modern, yet tastefully unique appeal. The 2005 version
doesn't come off as though it is trying to immolate its gridiron predecessor,
which loyalists to the original, should not try and compare.- This movie uses
comedy that appeals to today's generation. Comedy such as racial blasts
(courtesy of Chris Rock), toilet humor, slapstick comedy, witty one liners
and drag queen cheerleaders (headed by Tracy Morgan).
The movie begins with former NFL player Paul Crewe (Sandler) getting
arrested after a drunken high speed chase results in Crewe violating his pro-
bation. Crewe was put on probation following a scandal in which he inten-
tionally lost a game as a professional, in order to get out of a gambling debt.
Upon his arrival, Crewe finds out that the unjust warden (James
Cromwell) plans to use Crewe's skills to help make his semi-pro football
team of prison guards better. Crewe suggests creating a team of inmates to
serve as a warm-up game for the guards. The warden agrees and has Crewe
create a football team of inmates that, he hopes, will provide a jump-start to
the season for his treacherous guards.
Crewe gains the respect of many of his fellow inmates as he not only
teaches the quirky bunch how to play the game of football, but also turns
them into a competitive powerhouse as they prepare for their big game.
Crewe quarterbacks the team while Caretaker (Rock) and Nate Scar-
borough (Burt Reynolds) coach. Reynolds character, Scarborough, is back


from the original movie in which he played Sandler's quarterback role.
The movie has the same spirited type of plot as the original, but is car-
ried mainly by its star studded cast of actors playing athletes and vice versa.
The cast includes former football players Michael Irvin, Brian Bosworth and
Bill Romanowski. There are also former wrestlers Stone Cold Steve Austin,
Kevin Nash, Bob Sapp, Dalip Singh and Bill Goldberg. The rap world has
its star Nelly, displaying his high school athletic ability, as the running back
for the inmate's team. On the actors/comedy side, The Longest Yard is load-
ed with talent as well. Tracy Morgan, Rob Schneider and Nicholas Turtur-
ro join Rock and Sandler to help add a dynamic blend of comedy.
The character blend is a nice mix of race, size, comedy and acting.
While many of the athletes have never acted on screen before, the transition
of a movie based on football is a good one. In particular, Irvin, the former
Dallas Cowboy and Miami Hurricane, played the same wide receiver posi-
tion in the movie with the same intensity he did in his football career, mak-
ing his role believable. The same goes for Bosworth and Romanowski.
Sandler does an admiral job as portraying a quarterback in his career where
he's been a linebacker and golfer. He also shows his basketball talents as he
plays Irvin in a game of one on one in this movie.
Because of the star power, the plot sometimes doesn't carry out too well
and the characters are undeveloped or cut short. This is to be expected, how-
ever, and the comedy antics and the physical slapstick humor, carry the
movie to one long yard of entertainment.
For the movie goers looking for a solid rendition of the original movie
will probably be sorely disappointed. For those looking to see new age
humor along with star athletes and two of comedies best performers, The
Longest Yard will be worth the trip. Grade B+
