Clearwater restores wetlands



in Kapok Park

cutting ceremony alongside State Representative Gus Bilirakis and
Clearwater State Manager William Home at the grand opening of
Kapok Park Wetland and Restoration Project on Tuesday, Dec,13.

Staff Writer


Clearwater celebrated the
completion of the Kapok Park
wetland and flood plain restora-
tion project in a ribbon-cutting
ceremony Tuesday, Dec 13.
The restoration project
transformed the former site of
the Friendly Village of Kapok
mobile home park back into a
37-acre flood plain with 26-acres


of wetland habitat and park.
"We took a great communi-
ty resource and turned into a
great city asset," said Kevin
Dunbar, parks and recreation
director.
The projects goal was to
recreate the area's -flood plain,
reducing flooding and regulating
the flow of Alligator Creek.


Once a mobile park vulnera-
ble to flooding, the park now
integrates water management,
habitat restoration and recre-
ational elements. The recreation-
al park connects with the East
West Nature Trail and Alligator
Creek, helping the water flow
from the park to Alligator Lake
and into Tampa Bay.
This is the second of three
projects the city has undertaken
that changed the way storm
waiter management projects are
being handled in Clearwater.
Projects like Prospect Lake Park,
Kapok Park and Glen Oaks Park
are examples of multi-use pro-
jects Clearwater has completed.
State Representative Gus
Bilirakis presented a check on
behalf of State of Florida
payable to Watson Haynes and
Todd Pressman, co-chairs of
Southwest Florida Water
Management District
(SMFWMD) in the amount of
$1.25 million. Senator
Representative Bilirakis said he
looks forward to bringing his
grandchildren to the park.
Member from the neighborhood
s were also present at the cere-
mony.


"It's not a typical storm
detention or flood plain type pro-
ject. This is kind of a unique
thing in Clearwater, were we
turn these flood plain storm
water detention projects into
beautiful parks," says William
Home, Clearwater city manager.
In April 2002, the city pur-
chased the mobile home park
and. took on
$7.3-million
project to
relocate, more
than 200 resi-
dents living in
the park along
Alligator
Creek.. The
Friendly Kapok Park, Clea
Village of Kapok, built in 1964,
was deemed as a flood plain
because of its low-lying ground.
The 230-lot mobile home park
was relocated before construc-
tion began.
The city received a $3.5-,
million state grant to buy the
property site. Another $3.5 mil-
lion was provided by the
District's Pinellas-Anclote River
Basin Board and the State
Surface Water Improvement and.
Management program for design


and construction. Florida
Department of Environmental
protection contributed $400,000
for construction. The total pro-
ject cost the city $19.3 million.
Restoration began
September 2004 and included
construction on two water con-
trol structures, creating 26 acres
of wetlands and planting wetland
and upland vege-
tation. Two struc-
tures on the north
and south end of
the park will
relieve flooding
during storm
events. Kapok
also boasts 4,700
water feet of trails, three
new bridges and 22 new parking
spaces.
The Kapok Park Wetland
and Flood plain Restoration
Project was identified in the
Alligator Creek Watershed
Management Plan in 1997. The
site sits just a few blocks west of
McMullen Both Road at 2950
Glean Oak Ave.
"This is a positive impact on
the city," said city of Clearwater
Mayor Frank Hibbard. "It is a
gem in the crown of Clearwater."

Staff Writer
The Salvador Dali Museum
opened its next major exhibition,
Pollock to Pop: America's Brush
with Dali. The exhibition pro-
vides insight to the relationship
between the post-WWII
American art and'Dali's work
from that period.
The exhibition, sponsored
by Progress Energy, presents a
moment in the American art his-,
tory and will run through April
13, 2006 in the Salvador Dali
Museum.
This exhibit contributes to
the museum in two ways, said
museum's director Hank Hine at
the opening Friday, Dec.9.
"It brings heroic treasures of
America's post-war .paintings
and it provides understanding of
the second half of Salvador
Dali's career," he said.
.The "exhibition explores the
relationship in the history of art
by positioning major works of
American post war art such as
Abstract Expressionism and Pop
Art comparing to one another
and with the paintings of
Salvador Dali..
William Jeffett, a curator of
special exhibitions at the muse-
um, said that the exhibition is set
to explore artistic dialogue in a
sophisticated and multi-dimen-
sional sense.
"Art is a living tradition," he
said. "It is artist's response to,
being alive and being an artist."
It also set to explore the art
after.World War II, when all the
art focus shifted from Europe to
America.
The artists such as Pollock,
De Kooning, and Rothko had
steeped into Surrealism. The


new generation of painters
became concerned more with
the images derived from popular
mass culture and less with the
texture of paintings.
Dali looked at both tech-
niques, said Jeffett.
The exhibition of Dali
works from the museum's col-
lection, Dali Under the
Influence, is presented.in con-
junction with Pollock to Pop.
While one exhibit explores
major works of American post
war art, another exhibit exam-
ines historical influence by
painters on Dali, said Jeffett.
The Pollock to Pop exhibi-
tion includes art borrowed from
major. American museums,
including New York's
Metropolitan Museum of Art,
the National Gallery in
Washington, D.C. and private
collections and foundations.
The exhibit's paintings
include works in modem art by
Jackson Pollock, Willem de
Kooning, Mark Rothko, Roy
Lichtenstein, Chuck Close and
James Rosenquist, who was pre-
sent at the unveiling of the
exhibit.
"Dali was as part of the
American art as were these
artists," said Jeffett.
Rosenquist, an acclaimed
American artist, said that he 'is
happy that the museums put roof
over his paintings.
In his paintings, he adapted
the visual language of advertis-
ing and pop culture to the con-
text of fine art. He achieved
international acclaim with the
room-scale painting F-lll. His
specialty is taking fragmented,
oddly disproportionate images
and combining, overlapping, and
juxtaposing them on canvases to


Guest honor James Rosenquist spoke at the opening of Pollock To Pop:America's Brush With Dali
exhibition at the Salvador Dali Museum in St. Petersburg on Friday, Dec. 9. Rosenquist's works were
featured in the exhibit among other modern artists such as Jackson Pollock, Andy Warhool, Roy
Lichtenstein and others. The exhibition explores works of American post war art such as Abstract
Expressionism and Pop art in comparison to one another and with the paintings of Salvador Dali.

and how to apply them in their military performance and personal
conduct. Minnick will join 36, 000 other men and women who
comprise Coast Guard's force.
Men and women train together from the first day in the Coast
Guard just as they do aboard ships and shore units throughout the

Making the holidays safe
Family gatherings, special traditions,
delicious treats. it just may be the most
wonderful time of the year, especially for
children. Unfortunately, for emergency
room doctors it's also one of the busiest.
Take time out to learn how to protect your
little ones from some common holiday dan-
gers, and you and your family can enjoy a
season that's not only happy but healthy.
Here are some tips from KidsHealth and the
Pinellas County Health Department for a
safe and healthy holiday season:
Poisoning
SMistletoe, holly, poinsettias and other
plants are commonly used as decorations
during the holidays. Like many plants, these
are considered potentially poisonous and
should be kept out of the reach of children.
Symptoms of plant poisoning can include
rashes, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. If
you suspect that your child has eaten any
part of a plant, immediately call your child's
doctor or the national poison control num-
ber: (800) 222-1222.
*"Bubble lights" containing methylene
chloride can be poisonous if a child drinks
the fluid from more than one light (even if it
is labeled nontoxic).
*Alcohol poisoning is a common risk
for children during the holiday season.
Many parents host holiday parties where
alcohol is served. Parents must take care to
remove all empty and partially empty cups
as soon as possible. Because children imi-
tate adults, many may drink the beverages
they see adults drinking. Children become
"drunk" much more quickly than adults, so
even small amounts of alcohol can be dan-
gerous to children.
-Food poisoning is another potential
holiday hazard. Practice food safety by
washing hands, utensils, dishes, and any-
thing else that comes in contact with raw
meat, including poultry and fish, and raw
eggs before and after use. Don't contaminate
a serving dish with raw meat. Store leftovers
properly and heat them thoroughly before
serving.
Choking and Swallowing
-Tree ornaments, light bulbs, icicles,
tinsel, qnd small toys are potential choking
hazards for small children because they may
block the airway. The general rule of thumb.
is that if it's small enough to fit in the
mouths of babies and toddlers, it's too small
to play with.
*Common holiday foods such as
peanuts or popcorn are potential choking
hazards and should not be given to children
under age four.
*The needles of holiday trees can cause
painful cuts in the mouth and throat of a
child who swallows them.
-Angel hair (made from finely spun
glass) and ornament hangers may cause
cuts, skin irritation, or eye damage if
touched or swallowed by children.
Fire
-Keep your tree secured in a sturdy
stand so that it can't tip over (or be knocked
over by small children or pets) and keep it
away from all heat sources such as electrical
outlets, radiators, and portable space
heaters. If you buy an artificial tree, be sure
that it is labeled "fire-retardant." Unplug all
lights, both indoor and outdoor, and extin-
guish all candles every night before you go
to bed.
-Never leave the room with single can-
dles or menorah candles burning it only
takes a minute for a spark from a candle to
bust into flames. Keep live candles away
from windowsills and mantles and use only
flame-retardant decorations when decking

'^ ^ U 1


your halls.
-Circuits that are overloaded with
lights, decorations, and accessories can start
a fire. Don't overload indoor or outdoor
electrical outlets.
*You can protect your family by using a
sturdy fireplace screen when burning fires.
Never burn paper or pine boughs, since
those materials can float out of the chimney
and ignite a nearby home.
-Have a family emergency plan in the
event of a fire, and check smoke detectors
before you put up your holiday decorations.
These steps will ensure that your family will
be able to celebrate many holiday seasons to
come.
Accidents
-There is a lot of cooking going on dur-
ing the holiday season; as a result, there are
a lot of opportunities for burns and scald-
ings. Keep pot handles turned away from
the front of the stove and always keep the
oven door closed. Watch your children
while you are baking or cooking in order to
prevent accidents.
*Keep breakable ornaments out of your
young children's reach or keep them off the
tree until your children are older. If an orna-
ment does break, clean up the broken glass
quickly.
*Parents can prevent a holiday ER visit
by making sure the kids are buckled up
securely during car rides and by not driving
after drinking alcohol. In addition, be wary
when traveling during the evenings of holi-
days such as Christmas Eve and New Year's
Eve, since there is a higher incidence of
drunk driving accidents on these days.

City of Clearwater laboratory
receives two achievement
awards
This is the second year in a row that
Clearwater's Laboratory achieved recogni-
tion for their outstanding work under this
program. The US Environmental Protection
Agency (EPA) mandates Wastewater
Treatment Plant Laboratories outsource
quality assurance testing annually.
The test is accomplished by taking one
sample from Clearwater's Laboratory, split-
ting it in half and sending those samples to
two independent laboratories. The indepen-
dent labs test the sample and compare the
.results to the findings of the original lab.
Analytical Products Group, Inc., the
proficiency-testing provider utilized by
Clearwater's internal lab, initiated the
Laboratory Excellence Program.
Clearwater's lab is being honored with two
SSpecial Recognition Awards for achieve-
ments reached during the study. The
East/Northeast, and Marshall Street
Advanced Wastewater Treatment Plants all
received recognition. All tests included in
the study passed with perfect marks. No
tests were deemed unacceptable or in error.
In the test, approximately 1,800 labora-
tories participated and from these, 3-5 per-
cent had parameters with 100 percent cor-
rect. This places.our lab in the top 3-5 per-
cent in the nation.
"This is an impressive accomplishment
speaking volumes. for our Lab, working
under the direct management of Laboratory
Manager Maria de la Cantera. Thanks goes
to Maria, and the Laboratory Team for the


hard work and dedication necessary to have
received this honor," said Andy Neff, Public
Utilities Director for Clearwater.

2005 citizen survey takes the
pulse of Pinellas County
Results from a telephone survey of hun-
dreds of registered voters confirm that the
issues of primary concern to residents are in
line with priorities set by the Pinellas
County Board of County Commissioners.
Residents also gave the county some impor-
tant feedback on taxes they would be will-
ing to support in order to improve areas of
concern.
As a preliminary step in developing
Vision Pinellas, a strategic plan to guide the
direction of Pinellas County over the next
decade, the county asked registered voters
for their input on issues they consider most
important. County staff worked with an
outside research firm on the telephone sur-
vey of 829 citizens. These .citizens com-
prised a cross-section of the county's popu-
lation and income levels. The results pro-
vide a snapshot of issues on the minds of
voters and contain several noteworthy con-
clusions: Ninety-four percent of respon-
dents agreed that Commissioners need to
preserve open space and manage growth in
the county. Improving the timing of traffic
signals was the top transportation priority
for 63 percent of the citizens polled. A pro-
posed one-cent gas tax is on the agenda of
the Dec. 20 Board of County
Commissioners meeting. The public hearing
and vote at that meeting could provide fund-
ing for an "intelligent transportation sys-
tem" that will regulate traffic lights.
Affordable housing, an issue that wasn't
included in the last citizen survey complet-
ed in 2003, was a hot-button topic. A major-
ity (74 percent) were either very or some-
what concerned about the affordability of
workforce housing. When it came to rede-
veloping .deteriorating neighborhoods, a
whopping 90 percent agreed that the county
should encourage the process.,
Extension of the Penny for Pinellas
one-cent sales tax received support from 64
percent of voters polled to support infra-
structure needs in the community. A referen-
dum to renew the tax is scheduled for March
2007. Human services also emerged as one
of the top priorities. Seventy-two percent
said that both private charities and govern-
ment should share responsibility to address
critical concerns.. The issues of high and
* medium priority are: child abuse (95 per-
cent), domestic violence (92 percent) and
homelessness (81 percent). A surprising 80
percent who answered the question would
support a one-cent restaurant food/beverage
tax dedicated to homeless programs. In our
focus groups, participants reasoned that if
people can afford to eat out, they can afford
to help those without homes.
Results in the area of transportation are
also worth noting. At the beginning of our
survey, a majority of citizens rated trans-
portation as their highest funding priority
(54 percent). But after surveyors questioned
citizens.about other concerns such as public
,safety, the environment and high paying
jobs, transportation dropped in importance.
The final ranking revealed public safety ser-
vices (94 percent), protecting the environ-
ment (94 percent) and more high paying
jobs (88 percent) as the top three funding
priorities. The section of the survey polled
residents on the county's performance and
services. Overall, 61 percent gave the coun-
ty excellent or good ratings for meeting
their expectations.

PUBLIC ANNOUNCEMENT AS REQUIRED BY THE
CONSULTANTS' COMPETITIVE NEGOTIATIONS ACT,
CHAPTER 287.055, FLORIDA STATUTES

The Board of County Commissioners of Pinellas County is
seeking a qualified consultant to provide Construction
Engineering and Inspection (CEI) professional engineering
services for the Belleair Beach Causeway Bridges Replacement
Project. CEI Consultants shall be pre-qualified with the Florida
Department of Transportation (FDOT) and will be required to
perform all Federal Highway Administration (FI-IWA)
requirements for FDOT Local Agency Program (LAP) Agreement
Projects. CEI services will be performed in full compliance with
FDOT requirements and guidelines for CEI services.

The project is located in the western portion of central Pinellas
County, and the proposed limits of construction extend from just
east of Gulf Boulevard (SR 699) in Belleair Shore to
approximately 600 feet west of Indian Rocks Road (CR 697) in
Belleair Bluffs, a total distance of approximately 1.6 miles.

The project consists of the replacement of two bridges,
including the replacement of the 1,376-foot long drawbridge with
a 3,350-foot long, high-level fixed-span concrete bridge, located
just north of the existing alignment; and a 324-foot long low-level
concrete bridge with a similar structure, constructed along the
existing alignment, thus requiring two-phased construction. Two-
way traffic shall be maintained at all times during construction.
The project also involves reconstruction of the roadway along the
causeway and approaches. The wider and substantially more
elevated roadway will require a considerable amount of retaining
and seawalls. The existing bridges will be demolished upon
completion of the replacement structures.

Also included in the project is the reconstruction of the
Belleair Beach Causeway Boat Ramp Park. An access roadway
ramp will be required at the east end of the park to provide
vehicular and pedestrian access from the elevated roadway. Park
reconstruction involves total re-grading of the parking lot,
relocation and replacement of boat ramps, replacement of
seawalls along the entire perimiter of the facility, construction of
a concession/bait house building and a timber fishing pier, and
other park amenities.

The advertisement and receipt of bids is scheduled for May
and June 2006, respectively, and Notice to Proceed is anticipated
to be issued to the Contractor in September 2006.

researchers found mothers
have more of a struggle with
girls than boys.
The most common prob-
lem among 36-month-old
children is spitting out food
during feedings (79 percent).
They also are likely to become
upset when they want some-
thing to eat and are told "no"
(71 percent). Other common
problems are throwing
tantrums and accepting a cer-
tain food one day but rejecting
it on another. Both studies
were based on assessments

completed of their child at 36

say more study of the eating

young children is heeded.
"By studying children at
this age, we might be able to
get a handle on early charac-
teristics that could be risk fac-
tors for bulimia or the more

When the help is harmful:


author says system still


mistreats rape victims


LifeSkills center of Pinellas County

celebrates with ribbon cutting


By Jill Elish
FSU
Despite an increase in rape
crisis centers and improvements
in the treatment of rape victims
over the past 30 years, many are
still pervasively mistreated by
the police, doctors, lawyers,
judges and administrators who
process them, according to a
Florida State University sociolo-
gist.
In her new book, "Rape
Work: Victims, Gender and
Emotions in Organization and
Community Context,"
(Routledge), Patricia Yancey
Martin argues that even well
meaning officials do harm by
simply doilig their jobs. That's
because most put their organiza-
tion's interests above those of the
victims.
"Mainstream organizations
instruct and often require their
members to treat victims unre-
sponsively, in ways that add to
rather than alleviate the trauma
of rape," said Martin, the Daisy
Parker Flory Professor of
Sociology and chair of the FSU
department. "For example, they
instruct them to remain skepti-
cal, emotionally aloof and unin-
volved and to challenge victims
as witnesses whose stories must
be validated rather than comfort
them as victims who warrant
empathy and support."
Martin studied how the law
enforcement, legal and health
care systems respond when
someone alleges that he or she
has been raped. This includes

Leave it to the bacteria that
cause tooth decay to be able to
live without something all cells
were thought to require.
Scientists have long
believed a certain biochemical
pathway involved in the folding
and delivery of proteins to cell
membranes is essential for sur-
vival. Now University of Florida
Researchers have discovered that
Streptococcus mutans, the
decay-causing organism that
thrives in many a mouth, can do
just fine without it.
The findings, reported this
month in the Proceedings of the
National Academy of Sciences,
have rocked the cellular biology
scientific community, which has
long considered the pathway to
be crucial. The report may also
explain,why strains of the bacte-
ria can survive in the harsh
acidic environment they create
in the mouth.
"We were met with skepti-
cism ... because the dogma was
that this biochemical pathway is
key for all living cells,'.' said
study investigator Jeannine
Brady, an associate professor of
oral biology at the UF College of
Dentistry. "As far as we know,
this is the first example of any
bacteria that can cope without
this pathway; all of the existing
literature indicated it is vital."
The signal recognition par-
ticle, or SRP, pathway is a pri-
mary mechanism by which pro-
teins are chaperoned from cellu-
lar assembly lines, where they
are made, to the protective outer
surface of the cells, where they
are inserted. Without a steady
infusion of proteins, the mem-
brane weakens and the cell in
this, case, a bacterium -
becomes unable to protect itself
from harsh environmental condi-
tions.
In the human mouth, its nat-
ural environment, it is typically
S. mutans that goes on the
attack. When sugary foods are
eaten, the S. mutans population'
explodes, excreting lactic acid as
it digests sugar. The acid makes


crime, identifying, arresting and
prosecuting rapists and aiding
and comforting victims.
For the book, Martin inter-
viewed 200 people who work
with victims and studied materi-
al such as reports, protocols and
rape kits from 80 mainstream
organizations and 25 rape crisis
centers in 22 Florida communi-
ties. She found that most people
who work with rape victims are
sympathetic to them and their
plight.
So why do these profession-
als treat rape victims so badly?
In many cases, it is because
they are poorly trained or con-
cerns about prosecuting a crimi-
nal case takes precedence,
Martin said. For example, police
officers are focused on building
a case and medical personnel
often resent doing rape exams
because they are essentially evi-
dence collection procedures, not
medical exams.
The legal system is perhaps
the most obvious example of a
system where the victim is lost
in the process, according to
Martin.
"Our adversarial legal sys-
tem that makes the prosecutor
and defense attorney sparring
partners with the victim in the
middle is brutal," she said.
"Judges generally know almost
nothing about rape or what vic-
tims go through, so prosecution
is agony for rape victims. Jurors
don't understand rape either, so
those few cases that go to trial
often do not end in conviction."
And while there have been
improvements most notably the

life difficult for other helpful
bacteria and demineralizes tooth
enamel, causing decay.
According to the U.S.
Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention, 95 percent of adult
Americans suffer from tooth
decay. Considered by the U.S.
surgeon general to be a "silent
epidemic," tooth decay is a
chronic childhood disease that
affects five times more children
than asthma and is estimated to
result in 51 million lost school
hours.
In an effort to understand
how best to combat the tooth-
decaying properties of S.
mutans, Brady and her team set
out to learn how the organism
was able.to survive its own acid.
To find out, the researchers tin-
kered with systematically turn-
ing off several genes, individual-
ly and in combination, to see
how the bacteria responded.
"We found S. mutans can
survive, with normal growth,
without the SRP pathway," said
Adnan Hasona, a research assis-
tant professor of oral biology
and the study's lead author.
The bacteria altered to lack
SRP components were able to
adapt and survive gradual
increases in acid resulting from
their own metabolism,: suggest-
ing a backup pathway was in
place.
But, like goldfish dropped
in new water, the altered bacteria
could not contend with sudden
environmental change. When
artificially shocked with acid to
a pH below that where tooth
demineralization begins, the
altered bacteria became sick and
unable to grow. Shocking the
bacteria with other environmen-
tal stressors, such as high salt
levels or the presence of hydro-
gen peroxide, also caused them
to weaken, Hasona said.
"So, at least in this organ-
ism, we learned the SRP path-
way .seems to enable it to
respond rapidly to environmen-
tal stress, but it was not at all
necessary for the organism's via-


at most major hospitals and the
introduction of rape crisis cen-
ters begifining in 1974, Martin
acknowledged that sadly the
subject of her book is not a new
problem.
"This problem has been
talked about for three decades,"
she said. "Activists in the anti-
rape movement brought it into
the light and out of a stigmatized
cloud of mystery and shame that
once prevented us from talking
about it. With the exception of
rape crisis centers, organizations
that deal with rape victims will
have to change in big ways for
us to improve."
Communities in which rape
crisis centers and police depart-
ments work closely together are
the most responsive, Martin
said, adding that more coordina-
tion among organizations with
input from rape victims would
surely help them. In addition,
she believes medical and law
schools and police academies
must provide more training in
dealing with rape victims.
Martin also recommends
finding alternatives to the regu-
lar legal procedures, such as
RESTORE, a project that is cur-
rently being tested in Arizona.
The program allows a victim of a
"non-violent" rape to meet and
tell her rapist how the experience
affected her.
"Our research shows that
victims want to be heard and
believed," Martin said. "They
want people to know the harm
they suffered. They want some-
one to apologize; they want soci-
ety to validate their experience."


ability during non-stress condi-
tions," Brady said.
Brady's team surmised that
two other molecules, called
YidC1 and YidC2, might be act-
ing as alternate routes for protein
delivery in the absence of the
SRP pathway. They tested their
hypothesis and found that S.
mutans could continue to func-
tion in non-stress conditions
without the SRP and YidC1
genes, but not without the YidC2
and SRP simultaneously..
"The fact that the bacteria
could survive without the SRP
pathway was the most striking
finding for scientists in the
membrane protein insertion
field," said Ross E. Dalbey, a
professor of chemistry at The
Ohio-State University. "The big
question now is discovering how
these proteins are targeted in the
absence of the SRP pathway, and
I think that will be an important
area of future research."
Dalbey said the.YidC2 and
the SRP pathway could become.
targets in fighting tooth decay
because they have been shown
to enable S. mutans to grow in
acidic conditions. Additionally,
the YidC molecule has been
demonstrated to be important to
bacterial virulence and growth.
and has the potential to become
a target in fighting infectious
diseases, he said.
"Really, we started with a
very basic question related pri-
marily to S. mutans, 'how does
this bacteria tolerate acid?'" said
.Brady. "Asking that question has
opened the doir much more
widely to learning things that are
more fundamental about how
living organisms insert proteins
and how membrane function is
determined by proteins.
"We now know that things
are not always as straightfor-
ward as they seem," she said.
The study was funded by
the 'National Institutes of
Health's National Institute of
Dental and Craniofacial
Research.

Shands receives $1 million



for new cancer hospital


By Kim Rose
UF
Clark Butler and Deborah
Butler of Butler Enterprises
today presented a gift of $1 mil-
lion to support construction and
development of the Shands at the
University of Florida Cancer
Hospital.
The presentation follows an
Oct. 4 announcement by Shands
HealthCare and the UF Health
Science Center that the cancer
hospiial will be located on
Southwest Archer Road, across
from the Shands at UF medical
center campus. Construction of
the 200-bed facility will begin in
2006 and should be completed in
2009.
"Clark and Deborah Butler
have been great supporters of the
University of Florida for many
years," said UF President Bernie
Machen, who serves as chairman
of the Shands HealthCare Board
of Directors. "This latest gift is a
welcome 'addition to UF's new
university-wide capital cam-
paign as well as to one of the


campaign's top priorities the
construction of a new cancer
hospital."
Shands HealthCare CEO
Tim Goldfarb said, "The Butlers
are, long-time Gainesville resi-
dents and. their generous gift
reflects their ongoing commit-
ment to the community."

Butler, i- ice prcsidenr and gen-
eral manager of.the organization.
The Butlers have made numer-
ous philanthropic contributions
over the past 25 years. '
Clark Butler was diagnosed
with prostate cancer in 1996 and
turned to UF College of
Medicine faculty physicians and
Shands at UF for his medical
care.
"As a result of excellent
treatment I have recovered and
have been able to work full-time
for the last nine years," Butler
said. "After seeing hundreds of
other patients also receive won-


derful care at Shands, I thought
it would be fitting for Deborah
and me to donate $1 million to
spearhead the beginning of the
financial drive to build the new
cancer hospital."
Deborah Butler said, "It's
hard to explain what a scary
experience it is when your loved
one is facing cancer. We're so
thankful we had access to phe-
nomenal, quality care. I have my
Dad here today thanks to Shands
and UR"
W""We sincere\ hope the
Butlers' contribution will be a
catalyst for the additional phil-
anthropic support, required for
this exciting endeavor,"
Goldfarb added. "UF and
Shands together are national
leaders in research and patient
care. With continued philan-
thropic support, such as the lead
gift of the Butlers, we can make
much more rapid progress
toward finding a cure for cancer
and enhancing the treatment
alternatives available to patients
with cancer."

So, no y Carter unase
The Admiral Farragut Bluejackets played host Tuesday to Manatee County's Bradenton Prep. Although successful the past couple of
seasons, the Bluejackets roster is somewhat inexperienced this season after the loss of star guard Lewis Lampley and others to graduation.
The Patriots took advantage of that fact right from the opening tip and dominated Farragut all night long, getting plenty of easy shots like this
one.


Left: Although Farragut played tough defense in the first-half,
many shots still fell for the Patriots as they went to halftime
leading 33-17. .

Above: In the second half, the Bluejackets had a tough time
containing Bradenton Prep's guards who used their quickness to
force numerous turnovers and set up their offense.

begiinings of an answer. Within just

poured o6er pictures and data that clear-
ly indicated the effects ofiwater on' lay-
ered rock,, and. the evidence just kept
cornng.
Curious bead-like objects piqued
scientits'interest at once. The beads, or
'blueberries" as they came to be known,
turned out to be rich int hematite, a min-
eral that often forms in water. Distinct
layering in some rocks (called "cross-
bedding"' showed that water once
flowed there on the surface of Mars,
lea% ing ripple-like cur es in the outcrop
rocks. More recently, a rock was found
in which the chemistry indicated; the

Opportunity tried craters of different

Crisp enthused.
Some scientists wondered out loud,
saying, "how good can this mission
get?"
Cruising the Crater Course
Apparently, it gets pretty good for
this lucky. rover. For much of
Opportunity's four-mile' trek, it's been
like driving in a parking lot, noted rover
driver Scott Maxwell. However, trickier
maneuvers have been necessary on
some taxing terrain. On the way out of
her first crater, Opportunity experienced
slippage in the loose soil. Engineers
were challenged to find a safer way out,
and worked hard to find a successful
