Senator makes rare appearance in




Tarpon Springs


Photo by Scott Afasano
U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson-D. Fla. speaks to a group of locals at the
Cultural Center in Tarpon Springs on Tuesday. Sen. Nelson made
stops in southern and central Florida as part of his tour to let
Florida residents know of his plans to protect private property.

A recent controversial decision by the U.S. Supreme Court
led U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson-D. Fla. to Tarpon Springs on Tuesday
in order to drum up citizen support for a bill aimed at limiting
the strength of the federal government's eminent domain
power.


Nelson made the stop in Tarpon as part of his tour to cen-
tral and south Florida announcing plans to sponsor legislation
that would protect private property from the U. S. government.
Dozens of local residents crammed into the Cultural Center to
hear Sen. Nelson talk about ways to protect private property as
well as hear his ideas on how to stop the foreseen oil drilling
off Florida's gulf coast.
"It is not often you get a U.S. senator in Tarpon Springs,"
joked Nelson. "It's great to be here."
Nelson opened by talking about last month's decision by
the Supreme Court that expands the right of government offi-
cials to force the sale of private property.
Before the ruling, the right of eminent domain was only
being used for critical projects such as roads and schools. The
new law, according to the High Court, allows officials to seize
property for private economic development such as condo-
miniums and shopping centers.
"They want to take your house for a Walmart coming in,"
said Nelson. "It was a 5-4 vote in the Supreme Court. I dis-
agree with five justices. Article 5 of the constitution says that
government can't take private property without just compensa-
tion."
According to Nelson, that's exactly what the government
is enabled to do under the Supreme Court's decision. His
sponsored bill will attempt to restore one of the principles in
that he believes the country was founded on.
The bill basically says that eminent domain shall be avail-
able only for public use. The term 'public use' is not to be con-
strued to include'economic development.
"We are going to go after it from a federal standpoint,"
stated Nelson. "No federal funding (should) be used in regards
to the state."
Nelson, already fired up, than began talking about an issue


more closely related to the state of Florida: oil drilling.
A recently passed energy bill contains language that
allows the exploration of drilling off of Florida's gulf coast.
Nelson is adamant about preventing oil companies from
drilling. He believes drilling will effect Florida's $50 billion a
year tourism indubtty.
"The faces of oil industry are intent that they will drill out
there," said Nelson. "This is a battle we have to fight day in and
day out."
The battle looks to be a tough one. The bill, which passed
on June 22, permits oil companies to start conducting tests off
Florida's coast. Nelson along with Senator Mel Martinez are
looking to put an end to the drilling by going to the public.
"If I were president, what I would do tomorrow, is some-
thing that we can do immediately," he said.
And what he is doing is taking, his fight to residents of
Florida via the Internet. His 'hands off Florida's coast' petition
can be accessed on his website, billnelson.senate.gov, allowing
Florida residents to sign a petition, showing the government
their displeasure toward the new bill, which he hopes will pre-
vent the drilling.
"There are ways in which we can conserve fuel," said Nel-
son. "Start by looking to substitute gasoline with another fuel,
such as solar, wind or even ethanol."
Nelson believes that manufacturing more Hybrid cars is
another way, to help conserve fuel, allowing Florida's coast,
along with other parts of the country to be saved from drilling.
Senator Nelson's town hall meeting in Tarpon was the first
in a series of meetings he held this week. Nelson also updated
his constituents on Social Security, the National Weather Ser-
vice and responded to various concerns. The tour occurred
during a weeklong congressional recess.

Ever wonder where to find a good restau-
rant in the Tampa Bay area? Ever think about
who to turn to for a decent hair cut? There is
now a Website that can help local residents
find these things and more.
On July 1 Suncoast Search was launched,
giving the businesses ,in the local area
increased exposure of their business to local
customers. The company that is starting the
search engine is based out of New Port
Richey. It is called Total Web Hosting Solu-
tions.' Their latest search engine, Suncoastser-
ach.com, offers a more efficient way for resi-
dents and visitors to find businesses they are
looking for.
The concept came about when businesses


that worked with Total Web Hosting Solutions
started asking questions about optimizing
searches on websites for local companies. The
problem many businesses were having was
that bigger search engines produced too many
results for similar businesses around the
world. Local businesses were lacking expo-
sure as they were linked together with thou-
sands of others just like them.
"When trying to find a local business on a
national or world wide search engine, many of
those local businesses are over shadowed by
larger businesses located at various locations
throughout the world," said the search engine
owner Tony Boula in a statement. "That does-
n't make it effective or even simple to find
businesses that are right around the corner."
When navigating on suncoastserach.com


people looking for certain businesses can sim-
ply type in the business or what kind of busi-
ness they are looking for. For example, if
somebody wanted to find a plumber in St.
Petersburg, they would simply go to suncoast-
serach.com and type plumber into the search
engine and choose a corresponding county and
city.
For the past few months the Suncoast
Search staff has been gathering website
addresses from businesses in the Tampa Bay
area to put into the search engine. With the
help of the local business community, Sun-
coast Search now has over 5,000 businesses
entered into its search engine database.
The counties included in the Suncoast
Search database are Citrus, Hernando, Pasco,
Pinellas, Hillsborough, Polk and Manatee. In


addition to the counties, web surfers can also
choose which city within the county they want
to search a business in, making the search
engine even more localized for bay area resi-
dents.
The new search engines makes it easier
for businesses to get their names out as well.
With businesses relocating or opening up in
the bay area every day, the new search engine
provides a free and easy way to get businesses
with websites some exposure.
If businesses in Citrus, Pasco, Hernando,
Hillsborough, Pinellas, Manatee or Polk
Counties wish to register their website on Sun-
coast Search, they can go to
suncoastserach.com and click the 'submit your
site' button, or send an email with the domain
name to info@ezwebstartz.com.

Red tide has taken the Bay area by storm causing an awful stench along many Pinellas County
beaches. The reason for the smell is because fish are rapidly dying as a result of neurotoxic effects
of the red tide which enter their bloodstream through the gills.

By Scott Afasano
Staff Writer
The smell of oranges, the smell of afternoon thunderstorms, the smell of hot dogs at a Rays'
game, the smell of dead fish at the beach. These are just some of the year round smells many
Pinellas County residents have grown accustomed to over the years. The last smell listed of
dead fish is one that many in bay area wish would stop contaminating their nostrils.
Red tide is basically a heavy dose of microscopic algae or plant like organisms. In Flori-
da, the species that causes most red tides is Karenia brevis. It is a bloom of algae that drifts
inshore from the deeper waters of the Gulf.


"Red tide starts out in the Gulf of Mexico," said Scott Willis, a spokesman for the Fish and
Wildlife Research Institute. "The current patterns run from north to south, as the current comes
down it spins the red tide in shore."
Red tide is unpredictable, but Willis, says that most years, red tide arrives late in the sum-
mer.
"It is a little early this year," he said. "It has been here this early before, but recently it has
been coming in August or September."
Red tide is not something new to the bay area. Spanish explorers have described red tide
in journals dating back to the early 1500s.
Despite its name, red tide isn't always red. It can be brown, purple, green or sometimes the
water won't even change color.
The problem with red tide is that it is a natural event, unlike other algae blooms, which may
be created or enhanced by human activities such as pollution or fertilizer inputs from yards,
storm water run-off, septic systems, or agriculture.
"There is no red tide organism," said Willis. "We are still trying to figure out what triggers
cause the blooms."
Scientists are exploring parameters such as temperature, salinity, currents, nutrients and
competing species that all may contribute to bloom conditions. One theory regarding bloom ini-
tiation involves the transport of iron on dust particles from the Sahara desert.
Fish are dying at Pinellas County beaches because the blooms are severe. The reason fish
are rapidly dying is because of neurotoxic effects of the red tide which enter their bloodstream
through the gills. Because the fish die so quickly, these toxins do not have time to build up in
their tissue to help them become immune. Fish exposed to lower concentrations, however, may
accumulate these toxins in their body.
Fish are not the only victims of red tide. People can experience symptoms of red tide as
well. Red tide can cause respiratory irritation such as coughing, sneezing, and tearing. This is
caused when red tide is present combined with coastal winds which blow the toxic aerosol
onshore.
"People with allergies and asthma should stay away from the beach when red tide is
severe," said Willis. "Being around red tide could make (symptoms) worse."
As of last week the areas with the highest levels of red tide were in Clearwater and Indian
Rocks beach. There is no telling how long Pinellas County's red tide phase will last.
"All we can do is monitor it," said Willis. "Try to get some samples and figure out what's
causing it."

,NOAA I'epul'la no uirnado deaths

since March, a record

No one has died from.a tornado since March in the United States-a first
since official records began in 1950, according to the NOAA Storm Predic-
tion Center in Norman, Okla. Normally, during the most active tornado
months of April, May and June, 61 percent of all tornado fatalities or an
average of 52 deaths occur.
Killer tornadoes, however, are possible given the right atmospheric con-
ditions. One such scenario is during a land-falling tropical system. Parts of
the Gulf Coast, for instance, will have an increased tornado threat as Tropi-
cal Storm Cindy moves ashore.
The previous low mark was one tornado-related fatality during the same
period in 1992.
Despite this record, the U. S. has experienced a normal number of tor-
nadoes with 665 reports in the first six months of the year. However, 2005
is well below last year's record-breaking total of 964 tornadoes from January
through June. Tornadoes have caused a total of five fatalities this year so far-
four in January and one in March.
The busiest time of year so far in 2005 was the first 10 days of June with
177 tornado reports, surpassing the total for the entire month of May nation-
wide.
"This is truly a unique situation and one that we are very happy to
report," said Dan McCarthy, NOAA Storm Prediction Center warning coor-
dination meteorologist. "The ingredients needed in the atmosphere never
really came together, preventing development of our normal springtime pat-
tern that makes long-track tornadoes and tornado outbreaks possible during
these prime months for severe weather."
However, McCarthy cautions that tornadoes can occur anywhere any
time of year with the right atmospheric conditions. "We are entering the
prime time of year for tropical storms. We had 300 tornadoes last year dur-
ing the tropical season, so be prepared, pay attention to weather forecasts
and be safe," he advised.

Changing credit card rules may
cost consumers more money
Consumers should be aware that many cred-
it card companies have recently changed their
usage rules. As a result, cardholders could be
liable for sizeable fees they are not expecting.
Pinellas County Justice and Consumer Ser-
vices suggests that the first step to prevent high
fees is to make sure that your credit card payment
reaches the company by its due date. If your pay-
ment is late, your card's annual percentage rate
(APR) could be increased by several points, in
addition to your being assessed a late fee. Be sure
to read and understand the terms and conditions
of your cardholder agreement.
Another little-known provision could also
end up costing you money. If you ever need to sue
the credit card company, you may be faced with
what is known as arbitration or alternative dispute
resolution. Banks and other lenders around the
country have added mandatory arbitration clauses
to their contracts and have sent binding arbitra-
tion letters to their customers. These provisions
leave consumers with no legal rights.
When you dispute a charge with your credit
card company, you may receive a binding arbitra-
tion letter that offers you the option of not arbi-
trating. If you receive one, be sure to fill out the
form and return it by the due date. By doing so,
you retain your right to sue the company on your
own. If you don't fill it out, you forfeit the right to
sue. Be aware that some credit card companies
may cancel your account at the end of your mem-
bership year if you notify them that you won't
accept the company's'binding arbitration clause.
For information on consumer issues, call the
Pinellas County Department of Justice and Con-
sumer Services at (727) 464-6200. Visit

your rights as a consumer.


Pinellas County to receive
national achievement award for
Fort DeSoto project
Pinellas County will receive an award from
the National Association of Counties (NACO) for
an ecological project at Fort DeSoto Park involv-
ing more than a dozen federal, state and local
governmental agencies.
The project, officially titled the Intergovern-
mental Cooperation for Fort DeSoto Park Ecolog-
ical Enhancement Project, restored tidal circula-
tion to the bays of Mullet Key at the park
entrance, which lies in the Tampa Bay Estuary.
The project dramatically enhanced regional eco-
logical systems and .created new recreational
opportunities for citizens while fostering inter-
gpvernmental cooperation.
Removing part of a 50-year-old causeway
near the 'park entrance allowed a free-flowing
connection between two bays that had become
stagnated and was destroying the area's ecosys-
tem. Other ecological enhancements included
installing native plants, erosion prevention and a
40-foot bridge. The project also improved water
quality as well as fishing and canoeing/kayaking
opportunities in the park.
Governmental agencies involved include
four Pinellas County departments Parks and-
Recreation, Environmental Management, Public
Works/Engineering and Utilities as well as the
Florida Department of Transportation and the
National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration.
Other national agencies involved were the U.S.
Environmental Protection Agency, U.S. Depart-
ment of Commerce and the U.S. Fish & Wildlife
Service. Southwest Florida Water Management
District and the Pinellas County Environmental
Fund also assisted, along with the University of


South Florida. Eckerd College and Delta-Seten. a
private consulting firm.
Construction was largely funded by grants
from a,number of the collaborators.
The award will be presented July 17 at
NACO's annual conference in Honolulu, Hawaii.
The county will also be recognized for its County
Leadership in Conservation award presented by
NACO and the Trust for Public Land in March in
Washington, D.C.
Lealman fire district receives
tanker truck from Pinellas County
Pinellas County Emergency Medical Ser-
vices & Fire Administration (EMS) provided the
Lealman Fire District a rare bargain a lease on
a new $205,500 tanker truck for a token payment
of $1. Lealman Fire Chief Rick Graham received
the key to the tanker from Pinellas County Fire
Coordinator Mike Cooksey. The lease agreement
provides the truck to the Lealman Fire District for
10 years with two automatic five-year renewals.
In 2005, the county will spend more than
$400,000 to increase the size of water lines and
install additional fire hydrants.
The additional hydrants and the tanker truck
with a water capacity of 2,500 gallons and 500
gallons of foam to fight liquid fuel fires may help
Lealman Fire District's firefighters during inci-
dents such as the Town Apartments North fire.
That fire destroyed a structure whose nearest fire
hydrant was 800 feet away.,
The Lealman area is an unincorporated com-
munity surrounded by St. Petersburg, Pinellas
Park and Kenneth City. The area is approximate-'
ly 11 square miles and has a population of 50,000
residents served by two fire stations.
Interactive classes give citizens a
closer look at county government
S You don't have to be a civics student to find
out how government really works. If you've ever
wondered who decides how your county tax dol-
lars are spent or how an evacuation order is decid-
ed in the face of an impending hurricane, wonder
no more. Get answers to these and all your ques-
tions about the intricate workings of Pinellas
County government during the next semester of
Pinellas Citizen University (PCU).
The 12-week session meets from 6:30 p.m. to
9 p.m. Thursday evenings and engages students in
an array of discussions, field activities arid fasci-
nating discovery. Experience Pinellas County
government by going behind-the-scenes and
gaining hands-on experience. One or more
departments are featured each week. You'll learn
from the experts themselves county staff and
elected officials about the programs and services
provided to citizens by Pinellas County govern-
ment. -V,
This popular county program has added two
classes to the curriculum so participants now get
a more thorough understanding of the different
areas of government. Sessions with the constitu-
tional officers and fleet management are new to,
this year's curriculum.
Try your hand at balancing a $1.5 billion
county budget. Listen in on the drama of 9-1-1
callsand visit the Sunstar paramedic ambulance
service. See how Animal Services promotes
responsible pet ownership and adoptions. Watch
as Pinellas County turns household garbage into
electricity. Meet with the constitutional officers
and find out how the justice system works. Tour
the Pinellas 18 studios and control room.
"I'm glad I went to PCU, because now I see
how our Pinellas County government works and
where our tax dollars are being spent," said.
Dorothy Book, a 2004 PCU graduate.


Pinellas County Health
Department to offer free back-to-
school dental exams
Just in time for the back-to-school season,
the Pinellas County Health Department will offer

(closed noon 1:00 p.m.) as follows:
Tuesday, July 19 Pinellas" Park Center,

Photographer's shock images
open July 23rd in St. Petersburg
,Photographer, Tom Kelly, is known for craft-
ing unique colorized: black and white "shock"
images for magazines and personal collectors.
Kelly reveals a hint of. his unique art photographs
at the Kellusion Art Gallery in downtown St.
Petersburg. Coined, "shock" photography,
Kelly's deliberate splash of color on black and
white conflicts the eye, forcing attention onto a
particular detail, yet tempting the viewer to inves-
tigate further what lies in the shadows. Kelly's
special technique has secured custom requests
from viewers around the world. In 2004, the
artist was asked to produce over 100 unique
shock images for a private collector in Chicago
and more than 50 additional images for a Canadi-
an Casino. "During those months, I' barely got
time to sleep," says Kelly. Working full time as a
quality manager for an aerospace company, Kelly
began his photography business at home,
scheduling nights and weekends for. shoots.
Today, Kelly has donned his artist cap full time
and is building a business in the artsy community
of St. Pete. Photos have been used in advertise-
ments, magazines, personal .collections, and e-
zines. Kelly's fashion photography lends itself to
images that,have a shock value as well. In the
Spring issue of TEEZE Magazine, a trade publi-
cation, Kelly's unique approach to shooting
Haute Couture and Swimwear was spotlighted.
Shock, as a style of photography, may be
more scandalous to some than to others. "It's all
in how you view the world and whether you con-
sider new ideas uplifting or alarming," adds
Kelly. A full presentation of Kelly's shock .photos
Will be on display from July 23rd through Decem-
ber in his St. Petersburg gallery. Hours and spe-
cial events will be posted on his website, kellu-
sion.com.

ed in Plat Book 3. page 4, of the Public Records of Pinellas County, Florida


Scientists and engineers at the University of South Flori-
da's Center for Ocean Technology (COT) are developing equip-
ment to detect dissolved gasses and volatile organic com-
pounds in the deep marine environment. Using specialized
mass spectrometry equipment in a protective underwater hous-
ing, COT's Tim Short and colleagues are able to measure com-
pounds at concentrations less that one part per billion.
"Mass spectrometry (MS) is a powerful tool for detecting
a wide variety of compounds in very small quantities and at
extremely low concentrations," said Short.
Underwater MS can monitor a number of scientifically
important gases, such as methane, oxygen and carbon dioxide
as well as a range of harmful compounds such as benzene,
chloroform and toluene. In addition, analysis in the field has
important advantages over sample collection and analysis in
the lab.
"On-site analysis lowers the risk of sample loss, contami-
nation and degradation," Short explained. "The quicker we can
analyze a sample the better. Being able to analyze continuous-
ly in real-time is optimal for hazardous situations. Furthermore,
field analysis greatly increases measurement rates and reduces
cost per sample."
According to Short, mass spectrometers contain a vacuum
within which individual electrically charged molecules (ions)
can be analyzed. When sample molecules enter the vacuum
chamber through a membrane filter they are electrically
charged and then sorted by their mass-to-charge ratio. The
analysis produces a graph showing a spectrum of ion intensities
for each sample. From this information the molecular struc-
tures of compounds can be identified.
Originally focused on shallow water environments, Short
and colleagues are currently developing systems that can go to
depths greater than half a mile. Changes in the membrane inter-


face design have increased the depths at which they deploy the
mass spectrometer and recent tests have indicated that eventu-
ally the MS instrument will be able to reach full ocean depths.
"We will soon be able to go to depths of three miles," he
predicted. "In the course of development, we first had divers
take the instruments to 60 feet off the coast of Fort Meyers to
study the gas composition of somd hydrothermal seeps."
Next, the research group collected MS depth profiles to
600 feet in an inlet in Canada and, more recently, to 1140 feet
in the Gulf of Mexico.
"We also used a remotely operated vehicle to take the MS
equipment 240 feet down in Lake Yellowstone," explained
Short.
With MS equipment mounted onto an autonomous under-
water vehicle (AUV), Short says a number of practical goals
come into sharper focus. The environmental benefits of know-
ing what chemicals are down there, their concentrations, and
where they go, are invaluable.
"Taking MS analysis into greater depths with roving vehi-
cles has some very practical scientific and environmental pur-
poses," said Short.
For example, deep-water hydrothermal vents can be stud-
ied using MS and marine deposits of methane gas can be
detected. In some cases, underwater methane can be hazardous
because it can destabilize the seafloor, but if scientists learn
how to convert methane hydrates ice-like deposits of methane
gas formed in low temperatures and under great pressure into
usable fuel, seeking out methane deposits using underwater MS
might be another "gold rush."
"Applications for on-site MS at extreme depths are varied
and have potentially immense scientific and economic bene-
fits," speculated Short.

New UF farm safety program targets



200,000 migrant workers


By Chuck Wood- USF


Down on the farm, it can be downright dangerous espe-
cially for thousands of Florida migrant farm workers who may
not be familiar with rules and regulations designed to ensure
their safety on the job. But help is on the way, thanks to a new
University of Florida farm safety~-training program aimed at
the state's 200,000 migrant farm workers.
"What these workers don't know about agriculture, it
seems, can truly hurt theii;" said CesarAsuaje, an extension
agent with UFs Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences.
"In recent years, Hispanic workers have accounted for a grow-
ing number of injuries and fatalities in agriculture and related
industries such as landscaping."
He said immigrants from Mexico and other countries in
the tropics make up the majority.of Florida's seasonal agricul-
tural workers, and some have received little instruction in farm
safety.
"As result, injuries and fatalities among Hispanic work-
ers are increasing, and the language barrier is one reason for
that,", Asuaje said. "In a lot of cases, people are hurt because
they cannot read signs or safety instructions, and some don't
want to let on that they don't understand."'
Working out of UF's extension office in West Palm Beach,
Asuaje is offering farm safety training in 11 counties, and the
training program is being expanded to meet a growing demand
from the state's Hispanic population. He goes to citrus groves,
sugarcane fields, tomato farms and other agricultural enter-
prises throughout South Florida, teaching a one-day, on-the-
job training course to migrant workers. The training, which is
presented in Spanish, covers topics ranging from operating
tractors and other heavy equipment to handling pesticides and
avoiding back injuries.
Asuaje said the most recent statistics from the U.S. Occu-
pational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) indicate
fatal injuries among Hispanic workers on the farm rose more
than 18 percent while nonfatal injuries rose by 33 percent
between 1999-2003.
In the landscaping industry a sector of Florida agriculture
that employs large numbers immigrant workers nonfatal
injuries increased by 63 percent over the same period,
"It's a trend you see everywhere, particularly in Florida,"
said Luis Santiago, director of OSHA in the Fort Lauderdale
area. "They're doing work that others won't do and that usu-


ally means dangerous work."
For example, when you can't read instructions on heavy
equipment, just about any work can become dangerous, Santi-
ago said. He cited recent deaths among workers using heavy-
duty industrial lawnmowers in landscaping operations in South
Florida residential areas. Workers unfamiliar with warnings
often use them on steep slopes near.canals and sometimes
tumble in and get pinned under the mower.
Santiago said federal regulations require safetytrainiing
,: iforevery worker. While-some employers usually show a.Spa.-
ish- language :ideo, ihat's no guarantee that every migrant
worker will receive effective training.
"Most growers are honest, but some don't train workers
because they want to avoid claims against them if something
goes wrong," Santiago said. "For example, a lot of these work-
ers have never seen a respirator before working here. If they're
spraying pesticide, they might not know that a respirator is
required for protection."
While video training materials may help, Asuaje said it's
better to have someone teaching in person. In addition to train-
ing workers at farms around the state, he organized the His-
panic Health and Safety Fair in Homestead, Fla. on June 4, and
he is planning a similar program in Kissimmee on August 20.
More than 1;000 migrant farm workers are expected to attend.

NOAA awards more than $2.2 million to Florida


sea grant


The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
announced a $2,215,300 grant to the University of Florida to
fund programs and research by Florida Sea Grant.
The grant, through NOAA's Sea Grant College Program,
will focus on applying the scientific expertise of 15 universities
and research facilities toward solving the state's coastal prob-
lems. Florida Sea Grant's Strategic Plan addresses issues that
are important both nationally and in Florida, including provid-.
ing economic leadership for marine biotechnology, fisheries
and aquaculture, enhancing coastal ecosystem health and pub-
lic safety related to water quality, coastal habitats and coastal
hazards, and creating a highly trained workforce and scientifi-
cally and environmentally informed citizenry.
Nearly 80 percent of Florida's population lives in coastal
counties and those counties generate nearly 80 percent of the
state's economic output, its jobs and value-added income," said
retired Navy Vice Adm. Conrad C. Lautenbacher, Ph.D., under
secretary of commerce for oceans and atmosphere and NOAA
administrator. "Therefore it is crucial that coastal managers,
like those who work with the Florida Sea Grant, have the
resources that they need to make informed decisions."
The University of Florida Sea Grant Program is one of 30


National Sea Grant College Programs. Created by Congress in
S1966, Sea Grant combines university, government, business
and industry expertise to address marine, coastal and Great
Lakes issues. By serving as a gateway to relevant and reliable
scientific information, Sea Grant helps assure that individuals
can make informed choices about their use and stewardship of
marine and coastal resources.
'Each year, NOAA awards approximately $900 million in
grants to members of the academic, scientific, education, and
business communities to assist the agency in fulfilling its mis-
sion to study the Earth's natural systems in order to predict
environmental change, manage ocean resources, protect life
and property, and provide decision makers with reliable scien-
tific information. NOAA goals and programs reflect a com-
mitment to these basic responsibilities of science and service to
the nation for the past 35 years.
NOAA, an agency of the U.S. Commerce Department, is
dedicated to enhancing economic security and national safety
through the prediction and research of weather and climate-
related events and providing environmental stewardship of our

Citrus canker found at UF research facility,

will halt numerous experiments


By Tom Nordlie UF
Citrus canker, one of the most destructive diseases affecting Florida's
$9 billion citrus industry, has been found in a University of Florida citrus
research grove at UF's Indian River Research and Education Center, or
IRREC, near Fort Pierce.
The discovery, confirmed Thursday, June 30 by the Florida Department
of Agriculture and Consumer Services, Division of Plant Industry, will like-
ly require officials to destroy all of the citrus trees in IRREC's groves, halt-
ing all citrus research projects there, said Brian Scully, director of the cen-
ter and a professor of horticulture with UF's Institute of Food and Agricul-
tural Sciences, or UF/IFAS.
"This canker infection, though contained in the early stages, will tem-
porarily halt all of our citrus research projects at the center," Scully said. "It
will take us a number of years to recover, but ultimately this setback will
offer us a fresh start and improved groves in which to conduct research.
However, we will continue to conduct our collaborative research in com-
mercial groves with the cooperation of private industry."
The disease, caused by bacteria in the genus Xanthomonas, can affect
all citrus varieties, including grapefruit, oranges and tangerines, which are
grown at IRREC, Scully said. Trees affected by the disease develop small
brown lesions on leaves, stems and fruit. Citrus canker eventually reduces
tree productivity if left unchecked.
IRREC employees discovered the outbreak Monday during a voluntary
grove inspection, he said. UF/IFAS officials immediately reported the dis-


cover to the Division of Plant Industry, which is responsible for the state's
Citrus Canker Eradication Program.
UF/IFAS will cooperate fully with DPI to address the situation, said
Jimmy Cheek, UF senior vice president for agriculture and natural
resources. Mapping efforts by the Citrus Canker Eradication Program will
establish the extent of the infections and determine which groves will be
affected.
"Our personnel will assist DPI in identifying all infected trees," Cheek
said. "After that, we'll cope with the loss of any trees that may occur. We
now understand a little better what citrus growers go through when they face
a canker outbreak."
State citrus canker eradication procedures require the destruction of all
infected citrus trees that are found, as well as any citrus trees located with-
in 1,900 feet of infected citrus trees, Scully said. These measures minimize
the chances the highly contagious disease will spread to other sites.
Currently, six IRREC faculty and their .collaborators from other
UF/IFAS facilities are conducting more than two dozen experiments in the
research groves, some using trees planted 30 to 50 years ago, he said.
Citrus research efforts at IRREC emphasize plant breeding, entomolo-
gy, pathology and virology, soil and water science, plant nutrition and irri-
gation and post-harvest physiology, Scully said.
"It is difficult to quantify the loss in terms of time, monetary value and
the potential impact that our research findings have on the statewide citrus
industry," Scully said.
In addition, citrus research programs at the U.S. Department of Agri-


culture Horticultural Research Laboratory adjacent to IRREC are vulnerable
to the effects of the canker infection in the IRREC groves, said Harold
Browning, statewide coordinator for UF citrus programs in teaching,
research and extension.
Scully said he believes the disease did not reach IRREC via human
activity. "Our facility has been strictly following the precautions recom-
mended by the Division of Plant Industry and used by growers," he said.
The bacteria that cause citrus canker can spread on air currents, in rain-
water, and on people, animals, plants and farm equipment, Scully said.
Ongoing canker sanitation and decontamination efforts will be stepped
up at UF's other citrus research units, including the Citrus Research and
Education Center in Lake Alfred and the Southwest Florida Research and
Education Center in Immokalee, said Browning, who directs the Lake
Alfred center. "There is no reason to suspect that citrus canker would have
reached other IFAS facilities by way of the Indian River Research and Edu-
cation Center, thanks to the many safeguards we have in place," Browning
said. "But with canker in many areas of the state, ongoing vigilance is nec-
essary." UF/IFAS citrus researchers statewide have been developing plans to
react to a canker find that involved UF/IFAS research plantings, Browning
said.
"Florida citrus growers rely on our expertise to deliver improved citrus
varieties, to address emerging citrus challenges, and to help growers imple-
ment better management practices year after year," he said. "This setback
will not affect our commitment to work with the industry to help solve their
problems."


UF scientists detect soybean

UF researchers test drug that could cut orthodontic treatment rust, farmers brace for outbreaks

time in half


By Lindy McCollum-Brounley UF


In the first study of its kind, University of Florida researchers are test-
ing the power of a natural human hormone to biochemically move teeth
faster and less painfully during orthodontic treatment.
"Most of orthodontics has traditionally dealt with physics, the biome-
chanics of applying a force against a tooth to move it," said study inivesti-
gator Timothy Wheeler, a professor and chairman of orthodontics at UF's
College of Dentistry. "Ours is the first study to use a naturally occurring hor-
inone, recombinant human relaxin, to biochemically augment tooth move-
ment and retention."
Relaxin is best known as the hormone that helps women's pelvic liga-
ments stretch in preparation for giving birth. It does this by softening colla-
g6eifnd elastin in the tissues, loosening'strong, cord-like fibers until they
have the consistency of limp spaghetti noodles. -' ..... .-.
That ability prompted researchers to consider relaxin a possible way to
accelerate tooth movement and prevent relapse, a condition where the tooth
migrates back to its original position after braces are removed.
"You can imagine normal collagen and elastin fibers to be like rubber
bands that attach to the tooth to hold it in place," said Wheeler. "Those tis-
sue fibers resist the force of the orthodontic treatment applied to move the
tooth, and, when that force is removed, say when the braces are taken off,
the elasticity of the tissues springs the tooth back into position."
UF researchers will evaluate whether injecting relaxin into the gums
will loosen the collagen and elastin fibers and reorganize them so teeth can
move more freely into orthodontic alignment. Once the teeth hliie been
moved, researchers will administer another injection of relaxin under the
premise that it will further soften gum tissue fibers, preventing them from
pulling teeth back into their original position.
The study will be the' first of many to test the hormone as an orthodon-
tic therapy, and it is hoped the drug could cut treatment time in half and
eliminate' the need for retainers after braces have been removed.
This may not help the more than 5 million Americans and Canadians the
American Association of Orthodontists estimates currently wear braces, but
if it's shown to work it could bring a sigh of relief from those anticipating
future tooth-torqueing orthodontic treatment and the aching teeth and throb-
bing gums that often go along with it.
The patent for the drug, which received the green light from the Food
and Drug Administration last April for testing in human subjects, is owned


by BAS Medical, a California-based company. BAS Medical is the s
of the UF study, which will establish safety and proof of principle on 4
ple before a series of multicenter studies could begin testing the d
hundreds worldwide.
Researchers won't know which of the 40 subjects receive relax
which receive a placebo. One tooth in each subject will be target
movement, and, subjects will wear Invisalign braces for eight we
move the targeted tooth. At week eight, the aligners will be removed a
teeth evaluated for relapse every four weeks for six months. As a safety
sure, the week four outcomes of the first 12 patients entered into the
will be evaluated before the remaining 28 begin treatment. All 40 si
will have completed the protocol by early October.
Wheeler said researchers hope to determine whether the treE
could eliminate the need for patients to wear retainers to hold teeth ii
,after braces are removed. The issue of retention a term used to indic
tooth remains in the position to'which' it has been moved without rel
is a crucial aspect of the study.
"Right now, retention is the biggest problem we have in'orthodo
Wheeler said. "I want toget completely away from retainers, Which fo
patients right now are a lifetime commitment."
When patients don't wear retainers as prescribed, teeth gra
relapse, nullifying years of orthodontic treatment and expense. It is th
of patient compliance that frustrates orthodontists worldwide.
"If the results of this study demonstrate enhancement of the
orthodontic tooth movement and better stability after treatment, it co
an exciting new method of increasing treatment acceptability while de
ing the need for compliance," said Robert Boyd, a professor and cha
of orthodontics at the University of the Pacific School of Dentistry. "
ing orthodontic treatment without the usual regimen of lifetime
retainers would greatly enhance the effectiveness and efficiency of
orthodontic treatment."
An important goal of future studies is to determine dosage and
of drug delivery as Well as delivery methods other than injection.
"This is the first step orthodontics has taken to deal with the bi
control of tooth movement, and what the final product will be is hard
at this point. Obviously, we want to make it easily available, easily del
and as pain-free as possible," Wheeler said. "This initial proof of pri
trial will help us define how to accomplish that."

viously, soybean rust was found in

in the summer and early fall.
"There's a lot at stake now, and

dy is bout being caught off guard by soy-
sicians bean rust, because the fungus,
dictive known as Phakopsora pachyrhizi, is
spread by tiny spores that can travel
hundreds of miles on air currents, he
said.
"The fungus also matures very
quickly," Wright said. "Once a spore


lands on a host plant it can produce
new spores in nine days."
Despite its name, soybean rust
attacks more than 30 species of
legumes, a plant family that includes
beans, peas and clover, he said. On
soybeans, it causes infected leaves
to develop small brownish spots,
then turn yellow and fall off.
Crop protection sprays called
:fungicides control the disease in
South America, where soybean rust
arrived in 2001, Wright said. But
U.S. farmers fear the sprays could
cut profits.
Fungicide treatments for an acre
of soybeans would cost $10 to $30
per year, he said. Protecting the
entire U.S. crop could total more
than $1 billion.
"Soybeans have a low profit
margin, probably $25 to $50 per
acre," Wright said. "So there's not
much room for new expenses.".
To determine which fungicides
work best under Florida's growing
conditions, UF researchers are con-
ducting field trials of about 20 prod-
,ucts, said Jim Marois, a UF plant
pathologist. The trials, held at the
Quincy center, will also investigate
application methods.
"Growers- prefer the ,lowest-
priced products that work," Marois
said. "We want to help them make
Informed choices."
UF researchers will also investi-
gate tilling methods that bury old
plant residue, a practice that could
prevent dormant spores from start-
ing new outbreaks, he said.
"This method will only work
against spores that survive the win-
ter here, and we're not Sure that will
happen," Marois said. "We hope not,
Because then we'll only have out-
breaks if spores arrive from other
countries."
Native to Asia, soybean rust is
believed to have reached the United
States in September when winds
from Hurricane Ivan transported
.spores from South America, he said.
There, the disease affects Brazil,
Bolivia arid Paraguay.
Concerns about international
terrorism spurred U.S. preparations
for soybean rust, Marois said. Ini the
aftermath of the Sept. 11 disaster, it
was identified as a possible bioter-
rorism agent, which led to the devel-
opment of federal programs to iden-
tify and respond to the disease.
"We've had a very coordinated
effort," Marois said. "Although
nobody's happy soybean rust is here,
the silver lining is that we're learn-
ing more about how we can take a
nationwide approach to crop dis-
eases.
Florida will be a critical state in
the fight against soybean rust, said
X.B. Yang, a professor of plant
pathology at Iowa State University
in Ames.
"What happens in Florida may
well determine the risk level for
Midwest s s," said Yang, who is
part of an Iowa group collaborating
with UF researchers. "Information

Drug abusers are increasingly turning to a slow-release form of a pow-
erful painkiller for a quick and dangerous high, University of Florida
researchers warn. The trend is raising, alarm as the number of people dying
from an overdose of the drug fentanyl, an opioid 100 times more potent than
morphine, rises.
Addicts are misusing a clear patch that transfers a controlled dose of
fentanyl through the skin into the bloodstream over the course of a few days,
UF experts say. The adhesive patch is typically prescribed to treatpostoper-
ative pain or chronic pain conditions, but in some cases is being misused,
often with deadly consequences.
"Because the patch is a sustained release form of the drug, if one with-
draws the 72 hours' worth of drug and uses it in a' form that it wasn't
designed to be used for, then it can rapidly result in death," said the study's
lead researcher, Bruce Goldberger, director of toxicology and'an associate
professor in the departments of pathology, immunology and laboratory
medicine and psychiatry in UF's College of Medicine.
Patients who are prescribed the patch must be made aware of the poten-
tial dangers of misuse, Goldberger added.
Florida Department of Law Enforcement records cited in the UF study,
presented this month in Orlando at the annual meeting of the College on
Problems of Drug Dependence, show abuse of the patch resulted in the death
Of 115 people in Florida last year.
While the number of fatalities linked to the patch is still one-quarter the
number associated with other drugs abused, such as methadone or
hydrocodone, the number of sudden deaths from overdosing on fentanyl has
been on the rise during the past few years not just in Florida but also
Nationwide, researchers found.
"'We have seen an increased use and abuse of the patch form of fentanyl
for the past five years or so," Goldberger said. "This is a recent finding relat-
ed to the prescription of fentanyl patches."


In many cases, people who died from overdosing on the drug wet

In some cases, the deceased sought a state of euphoria by applying

It is not always clear from the law enforcement records wherejl

or from one that had been stolen or otherwise not used according to di
instructions, the group reported.
"Oftentimes we don't know where the patch comes from. Someti

Spielberg instills fear in



"War of the Worlds"


Rays notes


By Scott Afasano
Staff Writer

"War of the Worlds" starring Tom Cruise opened last week, just in time
for Independence Day. It seems as though every year at this time, a movie
of this genre is released. A film in which the world is in jeopardy of being
destroyed via aliens, apes, or asteroids. There was "Independence Day" in
1996, "Armageddon" in 1998 and "Planet of the Apes" in 2001.
War of the Worlds, directed by Steven Spielberg, is another one of those
movies. Spielberg does a good job, not only creating dazzling special
effects, but also showing people's emotions as the world begins to become
attacked by an unknown enemy.
Some could argue that much of the fear Spielberg depicts in the film
have mild comparisons to the September 11 attacks. The children even ask
if terrorists are the ones attacking the town when the aliens first strike.
Spielberg shows people fearfully fleeing from the aliens who are creating
wide spread panic throughout the world.
The movie doesn't waste any time getting to the action. The story is set
up with Cruise playing a divorced construction worker named Ray Ferrier
who is not very close with his children. Ferrier happens to have his children,
Rachel (Dakota Fanning) and Robbie (Justin Chatwin), for the weekend.
After quickly setting up the fact that Robbie dislikes his dad and Rachel
longs to know her father better, Spielberg begins the action. He shows his
extraordinary ability to use just enough character plot to coincide with a per-
fect apocalypse story. Spielberg puts the pedal to the floor, never letting up
as the audience is encapsulated in the character's fear.


NASA gives go for space

shuttle return to flight


NASA has cleared the Space Shuttle.to Return to Flight. After a two-
day Flight Readiness Review meeting at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in
Florida, senior managers approved a July 13 launch date for Discovery.
Commander Eileen Collins and her crew are scheduled to lift off at 3:51
p.m. EDT on the first.U.S. space flight since the February 2003 loss of the
Shuttle Columbia.
"After a vigorous, healthy discussion our team has come to a decision:
we're ready to go," NASA Administrator Michael Griffin said after the meet-
ing. "The past two and half years have resulted in significant improvements
that have greatly reduced the risk of flying the Shuttle. But we should never
lose sight of the fact that space flight is risky.
"The Discovery mission, designated STS-114, is a test flight," Griffin
said, noting that astronauts will try out a host of new Space Shuttle safety
enhancements. In addition, Discovery will carry 15 tons of supplies and
replacement hardware to the International Space Station. July 13 is the
beginning of three weeks of possible launch days that run through July 31.
NASA's Associate Administrator for Space Operations, William Read-
dy, chaired the Flight Readiness Review, the meeting that traditionally sets
launch dates and assesses the Shuttle's fitness to fly.
"Today's decision is an important milestone in returning the Shuttle to
service for the country. Our technical and engineering teams are continuing
their in-depth preparations to ensure that Eileen and her crew have a suc-
cessful mission." he said.

The special effects are brilliantly done, particularly with the lightning
strikes and the way in which the aliens use lasers to disintegrate the panick-
ing human beings. The robots in which the aliens drive are enormous and
lifelike, which help separate "War of the Worlds" from many other cheesy.
science fiction movies.
The movie lacks star power as Cruise is the consistent focal point. Tim
Robbins, who plays a crazy man named Ogilvy, does steal a few scenes with
his patent beady'eyed stare, as he helps Ferrier and his daughter escape the
terror outside. Robbie, played by Chatwin, gives the audience a forgettable
role as Ferrier's son. His scenes are short, but somehow not short enough as
he jumbles through lines, overacting at every scene. Fanning on the other
hand, is quickly becoming one of the hottest child stars of our time. Her
changes in emotions from role to role and the way she maturely handles her-
self onscreen are uncanny for a child her age (11 to be exact).
The moving starts out with such a bang, that the ending seems a little
rushed and confusing. The effects are still amazing, but the story flattens
out. Just as the aliens are showing signs of weakness, the movie comes to
an end. Spielberg does a great job showing the terror of the people in Amer-
ica, but doesn't spend time displaying the way in which the human race con-
quered adversity as well as the invaders (he leaves that to narrator Morgan
Freeman as he tells the audience why the aliens become defeated). The end-
ing could have been elaborated on a bit more.
Overall, "War of the Worlds," is a good movie. Although it fizzles a lit-
tle towards the end, the special effects and the way in which Spielberg
brings out his character's emotion, make the movie another pretty good near-
world ending summertime blockbuster. Grade B


USF officially joins new

Athletic conference


USF Athletic Director Doug Woolard (far left) and President Judy Genshaft (far
right) joined several of the school's coaches in celebrating the university's
official entrance into the nation's largest Division I conference on Friday, July 1.


USF Director of Athletics Doug
Woolard and, USF President Judy
,Genshaft were on hand to signify the
University's official entrance into
the BIG EAST Conference with a
flag-raising ceremony at the USE
Administration Building on July 1.
The Bulls are one of five new mem-
bers '(along with the University of
Cincinnati, DePaul University, the
University of Louisville and Mar-
quette University) that now com-
prise the new 16-team league,
becoming the largest Division I con-
ference in the nation.
"This is one of the most exciting
days in USF Athletics history,"
Woolard said. "The BIG EAST will
not only provide an outstanding
partnership for our student-athletes
but also )for the entire Tampa Bay
community. This move is another
indication of the commitment of our
university to compete at the highest
level."
"This is a defining moment for
USF athletics and will advance our
standing as a premier research uni-
versity," added President Genshaft.
"I look forward to being in the same
conference with academic and ath-
letic powerhouses like Pittsburgh,
Rutgers and Syracuse.."
"This is a landmark day for the
BIG EAST Conference," said Com-
missioner Michael Tranghese. "We
have been working closely with our
new members since they accepted
membershipwand we are extremely
excited to move forward together.
Our hew schools have already added


an enthusiastic spirit to the BIG
EAST. We know they are bringing
outstanding levels of athletic com-
petition and academic excellence."
BIG EAST institutions reside in
seven of the nation's-top 30 largest
media markets, including New York,
Chicago, Philadelphia, Boston,
Washington, D.C., Tampa, Pitts-
burgh and Hartford. With the incom-
ing members, the BIG EAST mar-
kets will contain almost one fourth
of all television households in the

Jorge Cantu has provided a tiny spark for a Rays team that, as of Wednesday,
had the worst record in baseball. For his efforts, Cantu has earned Pinellas
News' Rays shining player of the first half.

Road woes continue
Heading into Wednesday's game against the Chicago White Sox the
Rays were 8-34 on the road. Four of those wins have come at Yankee Sta-
dium in New York.

Falling further from .500
As of Wednesday the Rays had fallen to 30 games under .500. The most
they had been below the break-even mark since going 63-99 in 2003.

Bullpen popped
On Tuesday night against the White Sox the Rays bullpen suffered their
major league, high 16th blown save, which is six more than they had all of
last year. .

Losing streak
During their seven game losing streak dating from Tuesday, June 29
through Tuesday, July 5 the Rays batted .231 and scored 3.2 runs per game.
Their ERA was 6.30 and the bullpen's ERA was 7.52.

Sweeping matter
Ten times this season the Rays have been swept (seven on the road) in
a three game series. That is one shy of the club mark set in 2001.

Younger and younger
The Rays have the second youngest roster in baseball with an average
age of 27.93. Only the:Kansas City Royals are younger with an average age
of 27.74.'



First half awards


Memorable moment of the first half:
There are two. The first is when Eduardo Perez hit a game winning
homerun against the Boston Red Sox in the ninth inning humbling the.over-
whelming Boston faithful in attendance The second was when manager Lou
Piniella finally went off on ownership, blaming them for a lackluster season.

Forgettable moment of the first half:
The Rays took a 10-2 lead into the fifth inning against the Yankees on
June 21. They then proceeded to allow 13 runs in a record setting eighth
inning and eyenutally lost the game 20-11.

Highlight of the first half:
The Rays installed a new state of the art scoreboard prior to the start of
the season. It provides many interesting stats of both the Rays and the
opposing team throughout the game

Lowlight of the first half:'
The fact that the scoreboard is the highlight of the first half of the sea-
son.

The Future Award:
This could go to a few young stars on the Rays such as Jorge Cantu or
Scott Kazmir, but since the season is just about over, we will give it to AA
prospect Delmon Young. The outfielder is leading hisAA league in just
about every offensive category and is considered by many to be the best
young minor league prospect since KenGriffey Jr.

Most improved player:
Raymond the mascot has a couple of new dance inoves worthy of a new
contract.

Most disappointing player:
This could go to just about any one of the members of the bullpen, but
we will go with Outfielder Aubrey Huff who has done nothing but disap-
point since his stellar season last year. As of Wednesday, Huff was batting
a mere .262 with only seven home runs and 44 RBI. Last year he batted .297
with 29 home runs and 104 RBI.

Shining Ray of the Half:. Jorge Cantu
The Rays' second baseman has done an admirable job filling in for
Roberto Alomar who retired at the beginning of the season. As of Wednes-
day, Cantu was batting .295 with 13 home runs and 50 RBI. Only one major
leaguer his age (23 or younger) had more home runs and RBI as of Wednes-
day That was All-Star Miguel Cabreraof the Florida Marlins.

Slumping Rays of the Half: The pitching staff
The pitching staff for the Rays had a combined 5.83 ERA as of Wednes-
day. That was the highest of any team in baseball. They were also leading
the majors in walks with 338. The bullpen has blown a league high 16 saves.
The pitching staff also had two games where it gave up 13 runs in one
inning...both times against the NewYork Yankees.


Carl Crawford slides into second against the Toronto Blue Jays earlier this
season. Crawford didn't make the All-Star team, but Major League Baseball
decided to put his name up for fan voting for the final roster spot for the
American League.
