faculty discuss



"Deep Throat"

Poynter Institute member Dr. Roy Peter Clark speaks to members of the
Suncoast Tiger Bay Club at the St. Petersburg Yacht Club on Wednesday. Clark
and fellow Poynter Institute member Bob Steele spoke about 'Deep Throat' as it
pertains to both Watergate and pornography.


By Scott Afasano
Staff Writer
Members of the Suncoast Tiger
Bay Club got a little dose of "Deep
Throat" and a taste of the American
media on Wednesday at the St.
Petersburg Yacht Club. Poynter
Institute faculty members Bob
Steele and Dr. Roy Peter Clark gave
their opinions on "Deep Throat", the
informant of Watergate and Deep
Throat the movie which kicked off
the pornography craze in the 70's.
"It has been talked about so
much," said Steele, the associate
dean and director of Ethics Pro-
grams at the Poynter Institute. "I
thought by the time I came to Tiger
Bay everybody would have a sore
throat talking about deep throat."
Steele focused his talk mainly
on confidentiality and what Water-
e nta meant to tnrlav's media


he said. "They were responsible for
holding the powerful accountable.
They did not know they would cre-
ate more good than bad."
The good was not just removing
a dishonest president from office, it
was also establishing confidential
sources and spawning a wave, of
investigative reporting. But have
reporters been abusing the privilege
of confidential reporting? Steele
believes this is becoming the case.
"We use (confidentiality) too
often as a short cut to get a story," he
said. "I think it needs to be tight-
ened. The confidentiality tool is so
sharp and powerful."
Steele has a few ideas to help
slow down confidentiality and the
overuse of anonymous sources that
would bring back more integrity to
journalism.
I believe editors must know
about all aspects of the source


to offer it on their own* barring
exceptional circumstances."
Steele cited the recent CBS
report on Bush's alleged preferential
treatment while a member of the
Texas Air National Guard as sloppy
reporting.
He also pointed out
Newsweek's blunder when .they
reported a U.S. interrogator in
Guantanamo Bay had flushed a copy
of the Koran down the toilet while
interrogating an Islamic prisoner.
That report actually sparked deadly
riots in Afghanistan and other coun-
tries. Steele used these examples of
stories where confidentiality and
investigative reporting were abused
causing false stories.
After Steele spoke about "Deep
Throat" the informant, Clark took
the podium talking about Deep
Throat the film and today's pornog-
raphy problem.
"While credibility of anony-
mous sources have faded, pornogra-
phy has transcended America," said
Clark, Poynter's associate director
and senior scholar.
Clark pointed out that when
Deep Throat was first released it cre-
ated an uproar in American society.
Compared with today, Deep Throat
has become a racier version of the
television show Desperate House-
wives.
"Any 16-year-old boy or girl
can be subjected to images a lot
worse than that (Deep Throat),"
Clark said. "Porno is so much more
readily available today with modern
technology."
He said that pornography is
becoming too accepted from Ameri-
can households to the White House.
"The road from Deep Throat
leads not only to Nixon's White
House, but into Clinton's White
House with Monica Lewinsky."
Clark said that even the presi-
dent of the United States didn't con-
sider oral sex to be sexual relations.
If it is accepted in the White House,
it can be accepted anywhere. The
culture, according to Clark, is
becoming too sexual. Pop culture in
particular, portrays the wrong image
to children who are easily subjected
to its erotic behavior.
"The primary problem (with
pornography) has to do with chil-
dren," he said. "I remember, my par-
ents would chase me out of the room
when something adult was being
talked about on television," he
added. "The new electronic media is
having a profound impact on the
development of children. And if you
Think you can stop them from being
subjected to it all, you're wrong."


Beach



renourishment to



begin in August


By Scott Afasano
Staff Writer
The beaches of Pinellas County
are the lifeblood for a majority of the
bay area's income. For this reason,
portions of the county's beaches are
scheduled to be renourished begin-
ning in August.
Beaches from Sand Key Park to
North Redington Beach will be
renourished with the placement of
more than 1.5 million cubic yards of
sand. 'The sand will be placed along
nine miles of beach between Clear-
water Pass and John's Pass along the
Sand Key Barrier Island.
"Tourism is the number one
industry in Florida," said Pinellas
County Costal Coordinator Nicole
Elko. "Over 50 percent of visitors
come here to go to the beach. It's
important to keep them nice."
The project is expected to cost
$10-$25 million. Of that money, 60
percent of it will come from federal
aid, while 40 percent will come from
local and state funding. The county
will be selecting an appropriate con-
tractor for the project in the upcom-
ing week.
"Beach renourishment on aver-
agecosts $30-$40 million," said
Elko. "But sales tax revenue gener-
ated from tourism is $3 billion. That
is an 850 percent return on the
investment to have the beaches
renourished."
The Army Corps will adminis-
ter construction of the project, while
Pinellas County assists with permit-
ting, providing:easements and stag-
ing areas, funding, and local man-
agement for the project.
On average the counties beach-


es are renourished every six to eight
years. The reason for enriching the
beaches has a lot to do with the
impact by hurricanes.
"From a government stand-
point, we do this for storm protec-
tion," said Elko. "We bring in more
sand to widen the beaches to help
protect infrastructure in case of a
hurricane."
A group of surveyors estimated
the amount of erosion caused by
hurricanes since the beaches last
renourishnent in 1998-99. The
250,000 cubic yards lost due to hur-
ricanes will be fully covered by fed-
eral funding.
Sand will be dredged from
Egmont Shoals, just offshore of the
entrance to Tampa Bay and north of
Egmont Key to help in the renour-
ishment.
The sand will be pumped into
sand barges, and pushed to the beach
project area with tugboats. Once
near shore, the barges will hook up
to an unloader that will pump the
sand through a submerged pipeline
to the beach.
SThe first four phases of this pro-
ject were constructed in 1988, 1990,
1992, and 1998-99. Those nourish-
ment projects created a recreational
beach while providing storm protec-
tion. In the 1980's before the renour-
ishment programs began, many parts
of Sand Key had no beach.
S The project is expected to take
about eight months to complete.
Construction will more than likely
effect the communities of Sand Key
(Clearwater), Belleair Beach, Indian
Rocks Beach, Indian Shores, Red-
ington Shores and North Redington
Beach.

Charlie cuts 18-year-old Ryan Cannon's hair at his Gateway Barbershop in St. Petersburg. Charlie has been cutting
hair for 44 years, transforming hair into art and customers into friends.

It's a place where secrets can be
revealed and jokes are aplenty. A
place where neighbors are unknow-
ingly united by one single
object...hair clippers. Those clip-


pers belong to Charlie the barber in more than just a haircut." said 18-

has been a friend to many heads of everyone like they are his friends."
Northeast St. Petersburg for the past That is exactly what the 62-
15 years. year-old barber attributes a lot of his
"With Charlie you are getting success to. Cutting people like Can-


adopted kids," says Charlie. "I get
to watch a lot of'them grow up."
A reason Charlie has a substan-
tial following of usual customers is
because he makes sure he knows the
person's hair he's cutting.
"Cutting hair is just fifty per-
cent of the job," he said "An old
barber once told me that in order to
do well in this business you need to
do two things: remember the cus-
tomers' name and brag on their chil-
dren."
Originally from Houston,
Texas, Charlie brought his southern
charm and old-school-barber shop
appeal to St. Petersburg in 1990.
"There was an old service sta-
tion attendant across the street from
the barber shop I owned outside of
Houston," said Charlie. "He used to
say to people 'everything you need
to know about everything, (Charlie's
barber shop) can tell you and every-
thing they don't know, they'll make
up.' Everybody knew each other
and everyone was welcome. I just
took that same feeling and brought it
here."
The feeling is one of family at
Charlie's barber shop. Although St.
Pete is not as small as the town in
Texas where Charlie's barber shop
was, he finds there is still a commu-
nity connection.
"Nine times out of 10 you come
in here and you run into somebody

6545 Fourth St. N., caters to both the
young and the old. Despite being
more than 60 years old, Charlie ser-
vices many of the younger genera-
tion,
"I'd say 50-60 percent of my
customers are young (18-30)," he
explained. "Man I tell you they help
keep me young. I'm always updated
on the lingo and what they are talk-
ing about."
Charlie points out that the rela-
tionship he has with people is sort of
a barber shop intuition that comes
with the territory of his profession.
"You just gotta know people,"
Charlie said. "You, just have to
know what to say and what not to
say to certain people."
If understanding people leads to
success, then Charlie has achieved
it. The proof is in his customers
who come back time after time, not
just for the trim, but for the comfort
of his shop.
"It's funny how it works," said
Charlie. "I know when they are due
and when they don't show I wonder
where they are. Within a day or so
they usually show up."
Charlie doesn't need other bar-
bers in his shop. Even if he has 10
customers on a Saturday, chances
are they will be willing to wait for
Charlie 'the barber' to cut their hair.
And that's probably only half the
reason they are there.

Eckerd College appoints director of

the Center for Spiritual Life
"I am delighted that Rev. Richard I. Deibert, M.D., will be joining Eck-
erd College as the director of the Eckerd College Center for Spiritual Life,"
announced President Donald R. Eastman III. "A theologian and scholar
practiced in pastoral ministry in the Presbyterian Church (USA), Dr. Deib-
ert possesses all the qualities that we seek in a director who will lead our
three-year old Center into its next stage of development."
The Director of the Center for Spiritual Life is a position that will be
reporting to the Dean of Students. "Dr. Deibert brings to the position of
Director of the Center for Spiritual Life marvelous intellectual gifts and a
passion for serving students,"noted Dr. James J. Annarelli, Associate Vice
President for Academic Affairs and Dean of Students. "I am confident that,
under Richard's leadership, the programs of the Center and the partnerships
that the Center has established with external faith communities will grow
and flourish."
In accepting the position, Dr. Deibert responded, "It's clear that this
campus is experiencing a renaissance, a rebirth of conviction that the liber-
al arts well done are crucial for the world. One quickly senses in students,
faculty, and staff a shared passion not for the piling of knowledge, but for
the truth, beauty, goodness, and relationships that keep knowledge human-
izing and life changing. Eckerd knows that we are standing on a new fron-
tier in western civilization; as far as the eye can see, a hunger for the Holy
is seeping out of the cracked foundation of the Enlightenment. Feeding that
hunger is what the Center for Spiritual Life is all about and Eckerd's solid
heritage of Reformed Christian faith will serve it well. I can't imagine a
more thrilling moment for higher education. I'm humbled to be here."
Dr. Deibert has a Master's of Divinity degree from Columbia Theolog-
ical Seminary, where he received the Samuel A. Cartledge New Testament
Exegesis Award. He earlier earned an M.D. from the University of Florida
College of Medicine, where he received the F Eugene Tubbs, M.D., J.D.,
Memorial Award. He earned his Bachelor's degree with a major in religion
at Davidson College, where he received the George Gladstone Memorial
Award. Richard will be receiving his Ph.D. in New Testament studies later
this summer after defending his doctoral dissertation, "Second Corinthians
and Paul's Gospel of Human Mortality," at the University of Cambridge,
Faculty of Divinity.
Richard and his wife, Rev. Elizabeth M. Deibert, served as the organiz-
ing co-pastors and first co-pastors of Immanuel Presbyterian Church in
Montgomery, Alabama, from 1990 to 1999. This multi-racial new church
development project was the culmination of a 30-year presbytery plan to
begin restoring a mainline Presbyterian presence in Montgomery. In nine
years, the congregation constructed two buildings: a sanctuary and an edu-
cation building. In 1993, this congregation received one of ten inaugural
$30,000 Sam & Helen Walton New Church Development Grants for promis-
ing new church developments in the Presbyterian Church (USA).
Richard will assume his position on July 1st. Richard and his wife, Rev.
Elizabeth M. Deibert, a new church development pastor for the Peace River
Presbytery; have four children. They, will reside in the area of Lakewood
Ranch and St. Petersburg.

Warrington elected president of
Florida Natural Gas Association
Charles S. "Chuck" Warrington, Managing
Director of Clearwater Gas System (CGS), was
elected President of the Florida Natural Gas Asso-
ciation (FNGA) for 2005-07 at the organization's
annual convention held in Palm Beach on Jufte
22-24.
FNGA is a natural gas industry association
whose mission is to advance and-promote the sale
of natural gas, natural gas appliances and related
services in Florida. FNGA members include nat-
ural gas utilities, pipelines, and affiliates in Flori-
da.
Warrington, a graduate of Georgia Tech and
a registered professional engineer, has led Clear-
water Gas since 1992. Under his leadership CGS
has grown to become the 4th largest of the 28
municipally owned gas systems in Florida and the
35th largest of the 1,000 publicly-owned gas sys-
tems in America, achieving an annual growth rate
of 7% while increasing annual revenues by 75%.
Clearwater Gas System, founded in 1923, is
a full-service utility providing natural and
propane gas, appliance sales, installation and
repair services to over 18,000 customers in 17
municipalities in North Pinellas and Pasco coun-
ties. Clearwater Gas is currently expanding to
serve the rapidly developing Connerton and Bex-
ley Ranch areas'in central Pasco County.
Warrington is past chairman of the American
Public Gas Associatiin, past president of the
Florida Municipal Natural Gas Association, and
past president of the Tampa Bay chapter of the
Florida Engineering Society. He also serves on
the board of directors of the Clearwater Chamber
of Commerce and the United Way of Tampa Bay.
Warrington resides in Clearwater.
Housing finance authority offers
down payment assistance loan
program
As housing prices escalated in recent years,
the Housing Finance Authority (HFA) of Pinellas
County helped 4117 families buy their first homes
in less than 60 days. There are still funds left in
the program for more families to use toward
down payments on their first homes.
HFA officials are reminding citizens that the
agency works on keeping affordable housing
available to Pinellas County residents. Since its
creation by the Board of Pinellas County Com-


DONATIONS *E.DE Ii
^Boats, C ars, Rs&EquipmentunI
Remal EstateNeededfori Monastery


missioners in 1982 the HFA has issued more than
$1 billion in bonds to help area families own their
own homes.
One of HFA's options at this time is the
Home Key 2nd program, a down payment assis-
tance loan program that provides first-time home-
buyers the option of borrowing up to 8% of the
first mortgage for a down payment and closing
costs.
To qualify as a first-time homebuyer, an indi-
vidual cannot have owned a home in the last three
years and must plan to live in the home. There are
also income and purchase price limits that must
be met depending on the program.
Anyone planning to use the Home Key Plus
program (for first mortgages) must also attend an
educational class to help prepare for the home-
buying process. The class provides information
about realtors, mortgages, monthly expenses,
home maintenance and even how to avoid fore-
closure once you own a home.
There are other programs offered by the HFA
to benefit teachers, health care workers, police
officers and firefighters.
The HFA serves first-time homebuyers in
Pasco, Pinellas and Polk counties. First-time
homebuyers may call the HFA at (800) 806-5154
for more information.
Medical discount cards may not
be the solution to rising health
costs
As health care costs continue to rise, con-
sumers may be looking for new ways to get dis-
counts on their medications; The Pinellas County
Justice and Consumer Services is warning con-
sumers that medical discount cards may not be
the best solution. Although the businesses that
sell these discount plans do extensive advertising
and promotions, the county says it's important for
consumers to know what they're getting for their
money.
Be aware that most of the businesses aren't
regulated by the state of Florida. Before sending
any money, here's some information to consider:
Consumers may be required to pay a
monthly fee of $20 to $100 before getting access
to any savings. Ask yourself how much you're
really saving.
Discount card programs offer only a
reduction in the actual cost of prescriptions or
medical services. For example, a card that pro-
vides a 20 percent discount or savings would still
require that the consumer pay 80 percent. This is
important to know since most participating
providers require advance payment.
'Most'f "these plaiinsrequiire advance
notice in 'order to honor discounts. In some cases,
a week's notice is needed for a doctor's visit and
30 days' notice is often required for hospitaliza-
tion.
Some discount medical/prescription
plans offer discounts only on certain drugs. In
many cases, purchasing a generic drug may be
less expensive than applying the discount to a
name brand drug. (Always check with your local
pharmacist to confirm their, participation in the
program and the discounts offered.).
Terminating health insurance and opting
into a medical discount card program may pre-
vent or hinder your ability to regain insurance
coverage at a later date. Consider pre-existing
conditions when terminating any health insur-
ance.
- A few plans may use marketing tactics
that lead consumers to believe they're buying
insurance coverage. Call the Florida Department
of Financial Services at (800) 342-2762 to ask
questions about any discount plan.

Homestead fraud investigations
may benefit taxpayers
Almbst $4.5 million in local tax revenue has
been recovered thanks to the efforts of the Home-
stead Fraud Investigation Unit, a division of the
Pinellas County Property Appraiser's Office.
Pinellas County was the first in the state to imple-
ment a Homestead Fraud Investigation Unit 16
years ago.
The division began with one investigator and
now operates with three full-time investigators,
all former police officers, along with office staff.
The team has investigated more than 5,700 cases.
Thousands of Homestead Exemption applications
were denied as a result of investigations that
placed millions in property value back on the tax
roll over the years.
Tax revenue recovered by the investigation
unit benefits all taxing authorities, not just Pinel-
las County. For example, a recent anonymous tip
from a citizen led to the recovery of more than
$27,000 from one beach condo owner. Of the
total, $3,000 was returned to the municipality
where the property is located and about $12,000
went directly to the public schools budget. Anoth-
er recent case recovered $25,000 and one current-
ly under investigation could net up to $43,000.
The recovered money provides funding for
local needs and projects that otherwise wouldn't
be available.
The Homestead Fraud Investigation Unit
isn't looking for accidental cases where a proper-
ty owner may have made a mistake in.paperwork
or forgot to remove an exemption one year. The
investigation unit works to discover and stop
property owners who deliberately violate the
Homestead Exemption Act and steal tax money.
In cases of intentional fraud, the State Attorney's
' Office is contacted.
"Many fraud cases involve properties that
originally qualified for the homestead exemption,
but the owners at some point moved or decided to
rent the property and failed to notify our office,"
said Daryl May, director of the Homestead Fraud
Investigation Unit. "Often in such cases the
owner will be benefiting from a residency exemp-
tion elsewhere in Florida or out of state."
Discovering fraud cases requires legwork
and sometimes help from the public. The Home-
stead Fraud Investigation Unit has a hotline that
citizens can call to leave an anonymous tip about'
suspected fraud. If you know someone who may
be receiving an undeserved homestead exemp-
tion, call the hotline at (727) 453-3205 or e-mail
the investigation unit at jsmith@pcpao.org.

H. Lee Moffitt
Cancer Center &
Research Institute,
working in partnership
with the University of
South Florida (USF),
has discovered a new
use for an old, previ-
ously discredited anti-
cancer drug that could
add another weapon in
the arsenal against sev-
eral cancers, including
tumors of the breast,
ovary, colon, skin and
prostate.
The compound,
triciribine, was tested
at various cancer cen-
ters from 1982 to 1996
and found to inhibit
some cancers, but
researchers failed to
determine why. The
Moffitt-USF team dis-
covered that triciribine
works only against
tumors in which the
cancer-causing Akt
protein is abundant
and/or abnormally
active.
"These tumors are
addicted to hyperactive
Akt and cannot survive
without it," explains
Said Sebti, Ph.D., Mof-
fitt's Manuel and Ade-
line Garcia Professor,


With summer
vacations in fullswing,
the NOAA National:
Weather Service and
the Environmental Pro-
tection Agency
launched Air Quality
Awareness Days for
June 29-July 1, to
encourage Americans
to check local air quali-
ty forecasts as they
plan their daily activi-
ties. Recent forecast
improvements by
NOAA and EPA are
making air quality fore-
casts more available to
more people than ever
before.
"Improving air
quality forecasting
abilities at the national
level helps cities across
the country provide
their citizens the most
accurate, up-to-date air
quality predictions
available," said Brig.
Gen. David L. Johnson,
U.S. Air Force (Ret.),
director of the NOAA
National Weather Ser-
vice. "These forecasts
help millions of people
protect .their health on
days when ozone levels
are high."
"Summer's arrival
marks the heart of the
ozone season." said
Jeff Holmstead. EPA's
assistant administrator
for air and radiation.


Leader of the Drug
Discovery Program and
Associate Director of
Moffitt Research Insti-
tute. "What we discov-
ered is a tailored thera-
py for tumors with a
specific molecular sig-
nature."
Resurrecting tri-
ciribine may be
promising for patients
with ovarian cancer, for
instance, because
"Forty percent of
women with ovarian
cancer have tumors
with high levels of
active Akt," according
to Sebti.-
USF's Jin Cheng,
M.D., Ph.D., Professor
of Pathology, adds, "To
our knowledge, this is
the first Akt inhibitor
headed toward clinical
trials." Cheng and
Sebti's study results
were published in the
journal Cancer
Research.
VioQuest Pharma-
ceuticals Inc. (VQPH)
of New Jersey is
acquiring the licensing
rights to the compound
from USF through its
merger with Greenwich
Therapeutics Inc. and


"Whether living in a
city, suburb or in the
country, air quality
forecast information
can help all Americans
make important health
decisions."
Ozone pollution,
also known as ground-
level ozone, forms
when pollutants from
sources such as cars,
power plants and
industries "cook" in the
sun. Ozone pollution
can aggravate respira-
tory diseases, including.
asthma, and can reduce
lung function. Even
healthy people can
have symptoms related
to ozone exposure, so
everyone should pay
attention to air quality
forecasts. State and
local agencies issue
official next-day air
qciality forecasts for
more than 300 commu-
nities across the United
States. These forecasts
let citizens know what
kind of air quality to
expect the next day in
their community.
Earlier this month,
NOAA expanded its air
quality forecast guid-
ance, already used in
the northeastern United
States, to include the
South and much of the
Plains on an experi-
mental basis. The new


is planning clinical tri-
als with Moffitt. The
trials are expected to
start within six to eight
months. Patients will
be selected for the trials
based on whether their
tumors have hyperac-
tiv'e Akt, which can be
determined by a simple
slide-stain test of tumor
tissue.
Because triciribine
has previously been
investigated in humans,
the hypothesis-driven
clinical trials planned
at Moffitt can move
directly into a PhaseI/II
trial.
With the step-up of
functional-genomics
research at Moffitt and
around the country, the
advent of "customized
medicine" has been
heralded in headlines
and at medical confer-
ences. The clinical trial
of this Akt-inhibitor is
a concrete step toward
that reality. Sebti says,
"The beauty of this trial
is that it's molecular
therapy, based on the
blueprint of the tumor
cell."


forecast capability is
being built by a teamof
NOAA,and EPA scien-
tists who develop, test
and implement
improvements in the
science of air quality
forecasting for real-
time predictions. The
capability, which now
covers more than half
the U.S. population,
will expand over the
next decade to provide
nationwide coverage,
adding forecast infor-
mation for particle pol-
lution.
The NOAA
National Weather Ser-
vice forecast models
drive simulations of
atmospheric chemical
conditions using pollu-
tant emissions; and
monitoring data pro-
vided by the .EPA.
Twice daily, supercom-
puters operated by the
NOAA National Cen-
ters for Environmental
Prediction generate
ground-level ozone
predictions, which are
available on EPA and
NWS data servers. EPA
also provides health'
and safety information
along with'a compila-
tion of air quality alerts
issued by state and
local air quality fore-
casters.

USF and FIO researchers


return to deepest U.S. reef


Researchers from the Universi-
ty of South Florida's College of
Marine Science, supported by the
Florida Institute of Oceanography,
set sail June 23 to the recently dis-
covered Pulley Ridge coral reef-the
deepest coral reef in U.S. waters.
The expedition will return to USFs
Bayboro Harbor July 1 with a trea-
sure of scientific data and samples
for analysis.
The reef, which stretches for
125 miles along the south Florida
platform about 100 miles off Naples
on ancient, submerged barrier
islands at a depth of 250 feet, is
unique because of its depth. The reef
sits on barrier islands that are
thought to have become submerged
when sea levels rose after the last
glaciation, over 13,000 years ago.


The announcement in January
of the unique reefs' discovery made
a big splash in marine science cir-
cles and in the media.
"The exceptionally clear water
along Florida's southwest coast
allows sunlight to penetrate to 250
feet below the surface supporting
photosynthesis by plants and allow-
ing corals, which have a symbiotic
relationship with tiny one-celled
algae, to thrive," said John Ogden,
FIO director.
According to Ogden, the FIO
was to send two ships "RV Bel-
lows" and "RV Suncoaster" to aid
in the expedition. Crews were to
work in shifts and the research was
to be conducted 24. hours a day for
the 8-day expedition along the full
length of Pulley Ridge.


Ogden described the mission's
objectives before it began.
"We want to map the full extent
of the Ridge in order to locate the
richest coral concentrations, and
photograph it with state-of-the-art
digital cameras. We will also. be
bringing back samples of the reef
and the algae."
Besides the USF, the expedition
includes scientists from the USGS,
Mote Marine Laboratory, and the
Harte Institute of Texas A&M Uni-
versity. The expedition was to
include a mini-submarine for pho-
tography, a remotely operated vehi-
cle (ROV) for mapping operations
and a team of scuba divers that
needed to breathe a special mix of
gasses to work between 250 and 300
feet down while collecting samples.

Research: Florida getting better at protecting


homes from hurricanes


By: Aaron Hoover UF
New Florida homes withstood
last year's four hurricanes better thah
their older counterparts -- thanks in
large measure to continued improve-
merts in the state's hurricane build-
ing code, say University of Florida
engineers.
UF engineering researchers
have completed one of the most
extensive studies of how homes built
before and after Florida's latest
- building code held up against
'Charle.C Frances, Jeahne and Ivan.
Their conclusion: Homes built.
t ider the Florida Building Code that
became effective in 2002' sustained
less damage on average than those
built between 1994 and 2001 under
the Standard Building Code. Homes
completed before 1994, meanwhile,
fared worse.
"The iterations and changes
over the years to the codes Florida
uses have made a measurable differ-
ence," said Kurt Gurley, a UF associ-
ate professor of civil engineering and
the lead investigator on the project.
The engineers, whose study of
200 homes was funded with a
$90,000 grant from the Florida
Building Commission through the
Florida Department of Community
Affairs, present their report today at
the FBC's meeting in St. Petersburg.
SA subcommittee will mull the study
as well as other research and infor,
nation to help steer recomnmenda-
tions for possible new code changes

By: Aaron Hoover UF
Whether mapping genes, prob-
ing elemental particles or monitor-
ing'global warming, more and more
scientists rely on massive data vaults
located at universities and Institu-
tions around the world.,
Now, researchers at 10 Florida
universities have the infrastructure
for a computer network that ensures
that capability one faster than any
Other education-based network in
the Southeast and among the top in
the nation in speed and capacity.
Two and a half years in, the
making, the Florida LambdaRail'
Network is expected to. be operating
among all its member universities
this week. The network, which can
move information at speeds of 10
gigabits per second, has space for a'
total of 32 10-gigabit networks, or
channels. The result: The next gen-'
eration Internet has 100 times more
capacity than what was available to
UF previously capacity that mem-
bers will be able to purchase at a
fraction of its current cost.
"Everyone believes that high-
speed networking and grid technolo-
gy is the future of science," said
Marc Hoil. UF's interim associate
provost of information ,technology
and one of several UF officials
Involved in the project. "You have to
have a high-speed network, and we


later this year.
> The UF research is important
because it demonstrates that quality
codes are a key part of the prescrip-
tion against hurricane damage, said
Jeff Burton, building code manager
at the Tampa-based Institute for
Business & Home Safety, a building
safety advocacy group whose engi-
neering experts participated in the
study. That's especially true outside
Florida, already considered the
nation's leader in wind protection
codes, Burton said.
'"Comparatively speaking, there
are other- states that have no codes
that hav 'a high probability of a hur-
ricane making landfall," he said. "In
my line of work, I go to various
states and try to educate them.
Unless you have proof that they need
codes, number one, and number two,
that they actually work, it's a hard
sell."
Gurley's team, which also
included engineers from Florida
International University ard Florida
A&M University, compared homes
ini-the path of the highest wind zones
generated by the hurricanes.
The study did not formally
include homes built before 1994,
when the. Standard Building Code's
high wind standard became widely
used in coastal areas. However, the
researchers got a good idea of dam-
age to pre-1994 homes as a result of
their visits to storm-damaged neigh-
borhoods.
The engineers interviewed


'homeowners, examined photos and
other records of damage and inspect-
ed homes for construction method --
noting, for example, the size and
spacing of nails used to affix roofing
plywood to rafters. Besides Gurley,
the UF team included civil engineer-
ing. graduate student Rob Davis,
Jimmy Jesteadt, Sean-Paul Ferrera,
Ryan Chancey, and Luis Aponte, as
well as undergraduate students.
Among the group's findings:
Shingle-roofed homes built under
the 2002 code retained more asphalt
shingles than homes built under the
1994 code. Retaining shingles is crit-
ical in hurricanes because loss of too
many can compromise the roof,
allowing rain to enter the attic and
living space. The new code requires
shingles rated to withstand higher
winds than the previous code.
In Charlotte County, for exam-
ple, nearly 30 percent of the sur-
veyed homes built under the new
code that faced Hurricane Charley's
highest recorded wind gusts as high
as 150 mph had no shingle damage.
But every surveyed home built under
the previous code experienced at
least some shingle loss. Among those
homes that did lose shingles, mean-
while, very few surveyed new homes
experienced a loss of more than 10
percent. But 10 percent was the min-
imum for older homes, with many'
losing far higher percentages. The
benefits of the more rugged roof are
clear in'the study, but it can be tricky
to determine the relative effects of


code improvements from other
issues such as aging, Gurley added.
The team also found that a
recent requirement for reinforced
garage doors proved very effective.
Most of the homes surveyed were
built with this requirement, and none
had significant garage door damage.
However, researchers saw many pre-
1994 homes whose weaker garage
doors were blown off their tracks, a
failure that often allowed wind to
enter the house, damage the contents
and attack the integrity of the roof
from inside.
Despite the noticeable improve-
ment in performance among new
homes versus old homes, homes
built under the newest code did not
survive unscathed, Gurley said.
Common failures among new homes
include soffits, or vents located
underneath roof overhangs to allow
air to circulate through the attic:
Wind sometimes damaged or. blew
out these soffits, allowing wind-driv-
Sen rain to enter the attic, soaking
insulation and even damaging ceil-
ings and home contents in some
cases, Gurley.said.
Gurley said improving soffit
performance is one area the Florida
Building Commission will likely
tackle in its next set of code revi-
sions, among other issues. He said
his. research shows that although
there will never be a perfect building
code, Florida has a good track record
of improving standards


now have one of the best."
FLR is part of the National
Lambda Rail, an initiative to create a
national high-speed information
infrastructure for research universi-
ties and technology companies.
Similar regional optical networks
are under way in Texas, Virginia,
New York and other states -- but
Florida's FLR is the only one paid
for in full by its member universi-
ties, Hoit said.
All but four of Florida's public
universities: are participants in the
network, which also includes the
Florida Institute of Technology,
Nova Southeastern University and
the University of Miami.
The network relies on so-called
"dark fiber," existing buried fiber
optic cable, that wasn't yet "lit up,"
or tapped for use. UF won the con-
tract for network operations and
design, and UF technologists have
played a lead role in designing a sys-
tern to exploit more than 1,540 miles
of dark fiber connecting all the
member universities. Strategic part-
ners included Cisco Systems, which
provided high-speed routers and
other equipment, and FiberCo, a
fiber holding company. FiberCo
facilitated FLR's purchase of 1540
route miles from Level3 Communi-
cations, Inc.
Dave Pokorney, UFs director of
network services and the chief tech-


nology officer of the Florida Lamb-
daRail, said the network is the
fastest among higher education net-
works in the Southeast and one of
the fastest in the nation.
Universities paid to participate
on FLR on a sliding scale based on
their size and the proposed use, with
UF contributing about $1 million so
far, Hoit said. The annual operating
cost is expected to closely track
UF's previous Internet connection
cost of $500,000, but, Pokorney
said, "it's many orders of magnitude
faster than the prior network and
makes provisioning of new services
easier and at much reduced cost.
Casual users at the universities
won't notice the difference. But the
massive amount 'of capacity is key to
researchers such as Paul Avery, a UF
professor of physics.
Before the FLR, the fastest con-
nection available to UF physicists
was about one-sixteenth what it is
now, Avery said. That's not nearly
enough for the vast data sets soon to
be produced by such experimental
facilities as the world's highest ener-
gy particle collider, the Large
Hadron Collider near Geneva, he
said.
Researchers will use the collid-
er to smash protons and ions into
each other at higher energies than
ever achieved before. The collisions
- aimed at allowing scientists to


examine the structure of matter and
recreate the conditions just after the
"Big Bang" will produce trillions
of particles, each of which will
require detailed analysis. The result-
ing database is so huge that only
those with the fastest networks will
be able to tap into.and manipulate it.
"We're talking about moving
petabytes of data, where a petabyte
is a million gigabytes," Avery said.
"With the old system, it would have
taken us months to download data
that will now require only a few
days."
Avery, who studies high-energy
physics, directs two nationwide
National Science Foundation-pro-
jects aimed at engineering ultrafast
computer grids. Both 'the GriPhyN
Project and the International Virtual
Data Grid Laboratory are aimed at
helping scientists access and crunch
the numbers from the collider and
other astronomy and physics experi-
ments.
Other Florida universities are
tapping the FLR network to do
research the impact of hurricanes,
tornadoes and thunderstorms; to
enhance distance-learning capabili-
ties and for large-scale scientific
simulation.


By Cathy Keen UF
Portraying the gay rights con-
flict as a sharply divided battle
between homosexuals and social
conservatives ignores the ambiva-
lent feelings held by the vast major-'
ity 6of-people in then'mfiddle, a new
University of Florida study finds.
Nearly three-quarters of Florid-
ians surveyed said they are "of two
minds" about one or more issues
concerning gay rights, and the
results suggest the ambivalence is
tied in part to conflicting. values,
said Stephen Craig, a UF political
science professor who led the
research.
"The American public appears
to be on average both supportive and
hostile to homosexual and gay
rights, depending on the specific
question being asked," said Craig,
whose research was published in the
March issue of Political Research
Quarterly, "Someone might think
that homosexuals should not be dis-
criminated against in the workplace
because of their sexual orientation
but at the same time express the
opinion they don't want gays or les-
bians ,teaching impressionable
young kids in the schools."
The lesson for politicians and
policymakers is they can't gauge
public opinion about gay rights sole-
ly from the pro- and con- questions
in traditional surveys. They must dig
deeper to capture the full complexi-
ty of attitudes people have on the
Issue, he said.
Craig, UF political science pro-
fessor Michael Martinez, UF politi-
cal science graduate student Jason
Gainous and Jim Kane, of the Flori-
da Voter survey organization, sur-
veyed 601 Florida voters by tele-
phone in June 2002.
They asked respondents to rate
on a scale of one to four how pbsi-
tively and then how negatively they
felt about eight statements concern-
ing the rights of homosexuals. These
were: homosexuals should be
allowed to teach in schools; same-
sex marriages should be recognized
as legal; homosexuals should be
allowed to serve in the U.S. military;
homosexuals should be permitted to
adopt children; what homosexuals
do in the privacy of their own homes
is nobody else's business; there
should be laws to protect homosexu-
als against discrimination in their
Jobs; homosexuals should be
allowed to join the Boy Scouts and
other youth organizations; and
homosexual couples should be able
to .obtain family health insurance
coverage, the same way other people
do.
Nearly three-fourths. (74 per-
cent) of the Floridians surveyed


were ambivalent about at least one
of the eight statements, and roughly
one-third (31 percent) were ambiva-
lent on seven of the eight items.
The results showed that peo-
ple's level of ambivalence aboutlgay
rights depended on whether the spe-
cific issue concerned adult roles --
such as serving in-the military or
being protected against job.discrim-.
ination -- or related to family and
children, such as teaching in schools
or joining the Boy Scouts, Craig
said.
People who were ambivalent
about gay rights issues were to some
extent torn between egalitarian val-
ues versus support for traditional
marriage roles, where the man earns
a. living and the woman stays home
and takes care of the children, he
said.
Surveys show that Americans
have come to think more favorably
of. homosexuality and gay rights,
perhaps because of shifts in values,
Craig said.
"A portion of this change
undoubtedly reflects individuals
moving from one side of the issue to
the other, mostly. negative to posi-
tive, and from undecided to mostly
positive," mhe said. "Yet it is possible
that another portion stems from peo-
ple who were once anti-gay becom-
ing not so much.positive but rather
ambivalent.
"As Americans have grown
more tolerant of -homosexuality,
some have -adopted a supportive
stance toward gay rights, while oth-
ers have moderated their previously
anti-gay views but remain uncertain
and 'conflicted on the subject," he
said.
Craig said previous studies have
shown public opinion about gay
rights to vary with civil liberties or
family-related issues, but his
research found a couple exceptions,
he said.
"The prospect of homosexuals
becoming teachers was not per-
ceived in civil liberties terms so
much as it was a family matter,
given the frequent interaction that
takes place between teachers and
their students," he said.
In contrast, the question about
gay couples being able to obtain
family health insurance was seen
more as having to do with civil lib-
erties than as a family-related issue,
he said.
Howard Lavine', a political sci-
ence professor at the State Universi-
ty of New York at Stony Brook, said
Craig's work has contributed to an
"important shift in scholars' under-
standing of the nature and function-
ing of public opinion.ments of both
sides," he said. "

family and friends from food-borne illness and.food contamination. Here
are some tips to keep in mind when preparing, storing and cooking food as
you celebrate this July 4th.
Wash hands, utensils, and food preparation surfaces
Food safety begins with hand-washing, even in outdoor settings.
And it can be as simple as using a waterjug, some soap, and paper towels.
S Consider using moist disposable towelettes for cleaning your
hands.
Keep all utensils and platters clean when preparing food.
Preparing fruits and vegetables
Rinse fresh fruits and vegetables, including those with skins and
rinds that are not eaten, under running tap water before packing them. Pack-
aged fruits and vegetables labeled "ready-to-eat," "washed," or "triple
washed" need not be washed.
Rub firm-skin fruits and vegetables under running tap water or
scrub with a clean vegetable brush while rinsing with running tap water.
Safe grilling tips
Marinate foods in the refrigerator, not on the counter or outdoors.
If some of the marinade is to be used as a sauce on the cooked food, reserve
a portion separately before adding the raw meat, poultry, or seafood. Don't
reuse marinade.
Don't use the same platter and utensils that previously held raw
meat or seafood to serve cooked meats and seafood.
S If you partially cook food in the microwave, oven, or stove to
reduce grilling time, do so immediately before the food goes on the hot grill.
SWhen it's time to cook the food, cook it thoroughly. Use a food
thermometer to be sure the food has reached an adequate internal tempera-
ture before serving.
Beef, veal, and lamb steaks and roasts--145F for medium rare,
1600F for medium, and 1700F for well done.
Ground pork and ground beef--160F.
Ground poultry--11650F. Poultry breasts--170F.
Whole poultry (take measurement in the thigh)--1800F.
Fin fish--145F or until the flesh is opaque and separates easily
with a fork.
S Shrimp, lobster, and crabs--the meat should be pearly and opaque.
Clams, oysters, and mussels--until the shells are open.
Grilled food can be kept hot until served by moving it to the side of
the grill rack, just away from the coals where it can overcook.
Serving food safely
KIeep cold foods cold and hot foods hot.
Do not use a plate that previously held raw meat, poultry, or
seafood for anything else unless the plate has first been washed in hot; soapy
water.


Rays notes


Bewitched



belongs to Ferrell

By Scott Afasano
Staff Wrter

These days it seems like Will Ferrell is pumping out movies once a
week, as if he were still on Saturday Night Live.
A little more than two months after Kicking and Screaming was
released, Ferrell is back in the classic television hit turned movie,
Bewitched. The movie Bewitched blends the themes from the old television
show with a modern day cast to create a mediocre movie. It is one of three
movies based on television shows that are hitting the big screen this summer.
The other two are the Honeymooners and the soon to be released Dukes of
Hazzard.
This movie is not about the television show itself, rather, it is mainly
based on a remake of the classic television show and the behind the scenes
antics of the cast and crew.
The movie focuses on Ferrell who plays Jack Wyatt, a superstar actor
who has made a run of bad movies as of late and is looking to retool his
image by playing Darrin, the husband of Samantha (the witch) on the show.
Nicole Kidman plays Isabel Bigelow, a real life witch who is looking to
escape her craft by moving to a small suburban town where she can blend
in. The demanding Wyatt refuses to let the crew pick the person that will
play the new Samantha because he doesn't want any other stars stealing the
spotlight. 'He says that nobody noticed Darrin in the original series saying
'they even replaced him and nobody even noticed.'
He then notices the cute nose of Bigelow, who wiggles it with an
uncanny resemblance to the original Samantha. After offering her the job,
Wyatt begins to manipulate the script to have it focus mainly on him, leav-
ing Bigelow with little or no lines. Blinded by her desire to marry a 'mor-
tal', Isabel doesn't know Wyatt's true intention as she is completely enam-
ored by him.
The movie picks up slightly as Isabel is unmasked by Wyatt's deceiving
ways and reverts to her witchcraft to get back at him. The movie then fol-
.lows the two as they struggle to decipher between love and witchcrafts.
The chemistry between Kidman and Ferrell is almost non-existent.
Audiences are used to seeing Kidman play in serious rolls (aside from To
Die For) and Ferrell play goofy characters. Despite this, Ferrell does a good
job going from jerk to romantic to clown all in the same movie. The movies
funniest parts are when Ferrell is alone or not mingling with Kidman, such
as the dinner table scene and his appearance on Late Night With Conan
O'Brien.
The sets and effects are cheesy, however, it is possible this was done on
purpose to help correspond to the time when the original show was made.
The audience does not have to be a fan of the television show to under-
stand the premise, although the appearance of Uncle Arthur (Steve Carell) in
the end is a bit confusing and over the top.
The bottom line is that Bewitched is a movie that keeps the audience's
attention with humor coming in chopped up pieces of Ferrell. Few other
actors in the film provide any comedic spark other than Michael Caine, who
plays Isabel's father and always seems to steal the screen in just about every
movie he is in (this movie included).
The movie becomes very slow toward the end, particularly in the last 20
minutes when Uncle Arthur is trying to be too funny and Ferrell and Kidman
share a brother and sister type kiss.
Overall, Bewitched is a cute movie that will keep the audience enter-
tained thanks to Ferrell. It is a light hearted movie that might be a good
change of pace after seeing a dark sided action packed flick such as Batman
Begins. Grade C+.

Steve Georgiadis memorial

scholarship awarded to

Douglas Ashcroft

The Pinellas Education Foundation announced Monday that Douglas
Ashcroft, a 2005 graduate of Pinellas Park High School, is the recipient of
the 2005 Steve Georgiadis Memorial Scholarship. The Steve Georgiadis
Scholarship is awarded to a Pinellas County high school baseball player who
demonstrates the values of teamwork, leadership, high academic perfor-
mance and love for the game.
Steve Georgiadis was a 1988 graduate of Seminole High School, an out-
standing student and a baseball player whose remarkable talent was eclipsed
only by his passion for the game. Steve was the Pinellas County Player of
the Year and.attended the University of Florida on a baseball scholarship.
Steve, whose life was cut tragically short during his sophomore year at UF,
so inspired his teammates that his number has been retired at Seminole High
and the University of Florida.
Ashcroft, whose $1,500 scholarship will be applied to his college edu-
cation at the University of South Florida, is in the National Honor Society,
a volunteer youth baseball coach and a member of the Pinellas Park High
School Varsity Baseball Team. His award was presented by Ms. Angela
Georgiadis, Steve's mother, at the June 28 Tampa Bay Devil Rays game at
Tropicana Field.


FWC offers alligator hunt

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) is
offering hunters an opportunity to take part in its annual statewide alligator
harvest, which runs Sept. 1 through Oct. 8. Since 1988, Florida has offered
these alligator hunts, which provide a hands-ob, face-to-face bunting adven-
ture.
This season, more than 4,000 Alligator Harvest Permits will be avail-
able on a first-come, first-served basis. Permit holders are authorized to take
two alligators from designated areas during specific harvest periods.
Sale of these permits begins at 10 a.m. (EDT) July 6. Applicants have
their preference of applying at any county tax collector's office, license
agent (retail outlet that sells hunting and fishing licenses), online at
MyFWC.com/license or by calling toll-free 1-888-HUNT-FLORIDA (486-
8356) from anywhere in the United States or Canada.
To reserve a permit, applicants must submit payment for an Alligator
Trapping License and two alligator-hide validation tags, or provide proof of
a valid Alligator Trapping License (must be valid through Oct. 8) plus pay
the fee for the two hide validation tags. No 'other hunting licenses are
required.
The cost for a Resident Alligator Trapping License and hide validation
tags is $272, and non-residents pay $1,022. Any hunter who takes an alliga-
tor must complete and send in an Alligator Harvest Report Form. The infor-
mation gathered from these forms enables FWC biologists to monitor popu-
lation trends and impacts of the annual harvest.
An Alligator Trapping Agent License is also available for $52, which

allows the license holder to assist a trapper in taking alligators, but only in
the presence of the permitted trapper. All persons seeking a harvest permit
must be at least 18 years of age by Sept. 1, 2005, and only one harvest, per-
mit per person will be issued.
To educate participants on the rules and regulations of the hunts, the
FWC offers a no-cost, three-hour training and orientation program, which is
held throughout the state. Permit recipients are not required to attend, but
first-time participants are strongly encouraged to do so. Courses will be
offered in July and August, and permit holders will receive, by mail, permit
packages listing exact dates and locations.

Aubrey Huff shatters his bat in Tuesday's game against the Blue Jays. Like
the bat, the Rays have seen their season crumble in front of them. Heading into
Thursday the Rays had the worst record in baseball at 27-52
June bug
With theloss to the Toronto Blue Jays on Wednesday, the Rays wrapped
up the month of June with an 8-18 record. That is the second worst June
record in the history of the franchise. Their worst record in June was in
2003 when they went 5-21.

On the road again...unfortunately
The Rays head to Minnesota this week and then to Chicago next week
to start a six game road trip. It is a stretch that includes 13 of 17 games on
the road, with an All-Star break mixed in. The Rays are a dismal 8-25 on
the road, but had won four of their last five heading into Friday's game
against the Twins. The Rays were 3-3 at Minnesota last year, but are 3-10
over the last three years. The Rays have not won a series at Chicago since
their first year in 1998. Since then they are 0-6-2 in terms of series wins.

Stolen summer
Heading into Wednesday's game against the Blue Jays, the Rays had 11
steals in their last eight games, two behind major league leader Chicago.

Not so great eight
Heading into Wednesday, the Rays had allowed 79 runs in the eighth
inning this year. That,is better than a run per game. In that span they had

only scored 24 runs.

Crawford reaching select group
.As of Wednesday, Ray's left fielder Carl Crawford needed three more
stolen bases to become only the fifth player all time to have 150 stolen bases
and 500 hits before the age of 24.

Dashing Duo
Carl Crawford and Julio Lugo were the only set of teammates to steal
20 bases each this season (Crawford 24, Lugo 21) as of Wednesday. They
are the first set of teammates to have 20 stolen bases each before the All-
Star game since 2001.

Kazmir's Ks
With six strikeouts in Tuesday's game against 'he Blue Jays, pitcher'
Scott Kazmir tied the major league leader for strikeouts this season. He is
on pace to strike out 148 which would be second among Rays rookies for
strikeouts in a season. RolandoArrojo struck out 154'in 1998.

Paul C. Smith remembered Wednesday
During Wednesday's game, the Major League Baseball Advancement
and the Rays honored the 'memory of Paul C. Smith. Smith, who passed
away in February, was the former sports editor of the Tampa Tribune and
Rays beat reporter for MLB.com. The Rays, along with MLB.com, will
make a $5,000 donation to the Paul C. Smith Children's Trust fund.

Shining Ray of the week: Danny Baez
Heading into Friday's game against the Twins, the Rays closer Danny
Baez had converted on six consecutive save opportunities. Those saves cov-
ered all six of the Rays wins. As of Friday, Baez had an ERA of 2.83 with
13 saves and 27 strikeouts.

Slumping Ray of the week: Nick Green
Heading into.Friday's game, second baseman Nick Green had 11 strike-
outs in his last 10 games with only three RBI. On the season Green was bat-
ting .267 with only three home runs and 19 RBI.
