A spectacular world of fan-
tastical creatures demonstrating
superhuman physical ability and
astonishing grace is under the
blue-and- \ yellow Grand
Chapiteau in the parking lot at
Tropicana Field till Dec. 31.
Varekai, one of six touring
shows by Cirque du Soleil, is
neither a circus nor drama, but a
show that pays tribute to the'
nomadic soul, the spirit and art
of the circus and the quest that
leads to Varekai.
The prologue establishes
the scene set as ancient paradise
in mountain top volcanic forest.
Icarus, the boy who fashioned


S PlYoto credit:'ean-Francol Gratton
wings made of feathers and wax
and, few too close to the sun,
tumbles into the world of creep-
ing, flying and dancing crea-
tures. Icarus (Anton Chelnokov)
is a Byronic Swain in white, Who
lands in a jungle, wrapped in a
net while performing wonders in
his solo flight.
That' how the story begins.,
The story that is less of a story of
what happens after Icarus lands
on earth and more a fascinating
two hours of physical flexibility
and acrobatic ability wrapped in
costumes of feathers, ruffles,
appendages and tentacles.
People don't go to Cirque du
Soleil for the story They go for
the dazzling acrobatics, inter-
lock of grace and athleticism.
The performers are superb ath-


letes and artists.
Varekai introduces an inter-
national cast of more than 50
artists representing 13 countries,
including Brazil, Canada, China,
Georgia,' Italy, Mexico,
Moldavia, Russia, Spain,
.Sweden, Ukraine, the United
Kingdom, and the United States.
Varekai emerges from an explo-
sive fusion of drama and acro-
batics blending together thirteen
different acts into one grand
spectacle.
The word Varekai means
"wherever" in. the Romany lan-
guage of the gypsies
The acts include Acrobatics
Pas de deux, aerial straps, body
skating,, hand-balancing on
canes, juggling, Russian swings,
the triple trapeze, Icarian games,


Georgian dance and of course, a
pair of clowns.
SAmong the-more amazing
feats are the "Icarian Games," in
which Stiv and Roni Bello, and
Javier, Pedro and Ramon Santos,
serve as both thrower and catch-
er in astonishing human jug-.
gling. They lie on their backs,
legs straight up and vault from
feet their partners.
SThe Atherthon twins,
Andrew and Kevin, are mirror
images of each other in an aerial
straps number. Irina Naumenko
becomes illusion of grace in
nude toned bodysuit with golden
sequins for a hand-balancing act
that redefines elasticity Her
grace, strength and fle\ibilii\
are astonishing as she balances
on a series of placed canes


The show comes to a climax
with Russian Swings, in which
acrobats are thrown into the air
and alight on their partners'
crossed wrists or are pitched into
canvas nets yards away from
their swings.
The music is amazing. A
score, composed by Violaine
Corradi, is accompanied by the
seven-piece band. The violin,
Jew's harp and Andean pipes
stay with you with their melan-
choly sound throughout different
feats.
To attend Cirque Du Soleil
shows is to be amazed at the
acrobatic movements, human
elasticity, impeccable timing and
perfect mesh of art and athleti-
cism.
Let me assure you, it is truly
once in a lifetime experience.

Louisiana resident Joe Reich has
written abook on the history of Tampa
Bay, The Treasure of Tampa Bay.
Retired Colonel Reich said he wrote
the book for one reason to help young
men and women learn about the richness
of Tampa Bay's past.
The book covers 400 years of histo-
ry of Tampa Bay beginning with the
arrival of Spanish explorer Ponce de
Leon in 1528.
Reich then introduces Juan Ortiz, a
soldier, who was left behind when de
Leon and other soldiers departed.
Reich starts his book with a fictional
marriage of Ortiz to a native princess.
Through the marriage, he covers the his-
tory of the region, and the story of Ortiz
descendants to the era of space explo-
ration.
"I wanted to capsulate it all in one
book for young kids to read," he said dur-
ing a book signing held at the


MicklerSmith Florida BookTraders store
on Monday He said that he was helping
his son write an article on the history of
St.. Petersburg when he discovered that
there were many books
on the subject.
"There was so much'
to write about, so many
different areas you could
go into," he said.
Reich was based at
MacDill Air Force Base
for more than a year
'when he became inter-
ested in writing about
the Tampa Bay area. A
few days before leaving
for Korea, he began
reading and purchasing
books to build a story of
the Bay, a novel based Col. Joe
on historic facts.
Reich ties real historic storylines to
the fictional Ortiz family. He' said any-
time aq Ortiz family member encounters
a historical figure, it is fictional.


'What began as a hobby while he was
on active duty turned into a testament of
Tampa Bay history that took Reich six
years to complete.
S The Treasure of
Tampa Bay is built
around a family that wit-
nesses the growth of
Tampa Bay from the
landing of the Spanish





demise, Cuban fisherman
and their fishing ranchos,
British visits to the Bay,
the Caribbean pirates,
Cuban cigar factories, the
SReich Spanish-American War,
World War Two and the birth
of St. Petersburg.
Reich said that he wants readers to
get excited and uncover the details of
actual events.


In his book, Reich offers insight into
the British expeditions by building up the
folklore of pirate.visits and battles.
The role of Tampa's cigar industry,
one of the most fascinating to Reich, is
extensively researched in his book. He
said that the role of Tampa's cigar indus-
try and its role in the Cuban Revolution
and the Spanish American War estab-
lished the Bay as a critical part of the
country's political strategy with its neigh-
bors.
He also tackles the issue of the exact
location where the Spanish conquistadors
actually landed. It is believed that Ponce
de Leon landed near Sanibel Island near
Charlotte Harbor to the South of Tampa
Bay. In his book, to help build the story,
he said that Ponce de Leon and the sol-
dier, Juan Ortiz, landed at Tampa Bay.
"There is so much verbal history that
it is true," he said. "Tampa Bay is so big
you can't miss it."
Reich, a retired colonel teaches at
the St. Paul's School in Covington,
Louisiana, where he lives with his wife.

Military News

Marine Corps Pfc. Joshua A. Dowers, son of Suki M. and
William R. Dowers of Clearwater, Fla., recently completed 12
weeks of basic training at Marine Corps Recruit Depot, San Diego,
Calif. designed to challenge new Marine recruits both physically
and mentally.
Dowers and fellow recruits began their training at 5 a. m., by
running three miles and performing calisthenics. In addition to the
physical conditioning program, Dowers spent numerous hours in
classroom and field assignments which included learning first aid,
uniform regulations, combat water survival, marksmanship, hand-
to-hand combat and assorted weapons training. They performed
close order drill and operated as a small infantry unit during field
training.
Dowers and other recruits also received instruction on the
Marine Corps' core values--honor, courage and commitment, and
what the core values mean in guiding personal and professional
conduct.
Dowers and fellow recruits ended the training phase with The
Crucible, a 54-hour, team evolution culminating in an emotional
ceremony in which recruits are presented the Marine Corps
Emblem, and addressed as "Marines" for the first time in their
careers.
Navy Seaman Recruit Phelipe C. Maxwell, son of Andrea K.
Griffen of Smyrna, Ga. and Charles Maxwell of St. Petersburg, Fla.,
recently completed U.S. Navy basic training at Recruit Training
Command, Great Lakes, Ill.
During the eight-week program, Maxwell completed a variety
of training which included classroom study and practical instruction
on naval customs, first aid, firefighting, water safety and survival,
and shipboard and aircraft safety. An emphasis was also placed on
physical fitness.
The capstone event of boot camp is "Battle Stations". This
exercise gives recruits the skills and confidence they need to suc-
ceed in the fleet. "Battle Stations" is designed to galvanize the basic
warrior attributes of sacrifice, dedication, teamwork and endurance
in each recruit through the practical application of basic Navy skills
and the core values of Honor, Courage and Commitment. Its dis-
tinctly "Navy" flavor was designed to take into account what it
means to be a Sailor.
Maxwell is a 2003 graduate of Williams High School of
Alexandria, Va.

Study finds older Americans



healthier, maybe


By Randolph Fillmore

USF

A recent study pub-
lished in the Journal of
Gerontology: Medical
Sciences (Vol 60A, No. 11)
shows that Amn-ericans ouer
age 65 have improved their
health by some biological
markers, thanks, perhaps, to
new medications, but are not
improving in other areas.
"Although people are
living longer and report
declining loss of functioning,
in later years, the prevalence
of many diseases has
increased in older popula-
tions," said Sandra
Reynolds, a professor in the
University of South Florida
School of Aging Studies and
a study co-author. "We used
biological markers of health
risk rather than the subjec-
tive, self-reports of older
Americans and found some
biological markers have
improved during the period
from 1988 to 2000 while
others have not."
For example, using the
National Health and
Nutrition Examination
Surveys data, researchers
from USF, the University of
Southern California and


UCLA examined high risk
measures for blood pressure,
cholesterol (HDL, LDL and
total cholesterol), body mass
index (BMI), homocysteine
and others.
"We identified individu-.
:als with high risk for each
indicator, regardless of
whether they were on med-
ication," explained
Reynolds. "Those on med-
ication who were outside the
range -of risk were consid-
ered not to be at-risk."
For example, the
researchers found most older
Americans had high risk lev-
els of systolic blood pressure
and a third had weight levels
considered obese. Between
the early 1990s and the late
1990s, there werd conflict-
ing trends in the biological
risk factors.
"There was a significant
increase in those at risk for
high levels of systcic blood
pressure, while we saw sig-
nificant decreases in those
with high-risk levels of LDL
and total cholesterol,"
explained Reynolds. "Our
results suggest that antihy-
pertensive drugs were less.
effective in controlling or
lowering high-risk systolic
blood pressure than were the


anti-cholesterol drugs in
lowering cholesterol levels."
High-risk levels of
homocysteine, a substance
linked to cardiovascular dis-
eases, declined by seven per-
cent. Researchers, suggested
the drop in IeomocNsteine
levels might be related to
increases in dietary folic
acid through increased levels
in cereals and other sources
of fiber.
The ,study concluded
that the older American's
health report card presented
good news and bad news.
"We found mixed pat-
terns of change in the preva-
lence of high risk levels of
several biological markers,"
concluded Reynolds. "Some
levels increased, due largely
to the increase in obesity.
Other levels decreased, due
mainly to better diagnosis
and treatment of high cho-
lesterol. We suspect, howev-
er, that the high-risk levels
would have risen even more
without the increased use of
medications."
Researchers also noted
higher education levels,
often .cited as a factor in
improved health, did not
change any of the results
when accounted for.


Moffit doctor develops new approach


in helping patients with ovarian


cancer


Choosing the best
cancer treatments for
patients is often hit or
miss. Johnathan M.
Lancaster, M.D., Ph.D.,
Interim Chief of
Gynecologic Surgical
Oncology and Medical
Director, Lifetime Cancer
Screening & Prevention
Center at the H. Lee
Moffitt Cancer Center &
Research Institute, is
developing a new method
for selecting the most
effective anticancer drugs.
.based on the unique gene*
fingerprint of a patient's
tumor .
Part of this work was
recently published in


November's Nature jour-
nal. Lancaster's laboratory
at Moffitt Cancer Center
contributed to the findings
of the study .led by
researchers from the Duke
Institute for Genome
Sciences and Policy and
the Duke Comprehensive
Cancer Center research.
The new approach
scans ovarian cancers for
evidence of widespread
genetic changes that drive
the tumor's growth, sur-
vival and response to ther-
apy. Rather than simply
identifying defective
genes, the scientists identi-
fied altered pathways that
consistently escape normal


regulation in tumors. To
date, lung cancer and
breast cancer have been
tested with this approach.
In their most recent
study, the research team
developed-its strategy by
first creating artificial can-
cer conditions by introduc-
ing a series of cancer-caus-
ing genes, called onco-
genes, into otherwise nor-
mal cells. By comparing
gene expression patterns
in normal cells versus cells
harboring oncogenes, they
demonstrated that each
cellular signaling pathway
is associated with a unique
pattern of gene expression,
its signature.


Moreover, by study-
ing actual human cancers
for evidence of the artifi-
cially created signatures,
the researchers were able
to predict which patients
carried the deregulated
pathways in their cancers.
These patients might bene-
fit from drugs that specifi-.
cally target those path-
ways. Lancaster plans to
test the new approach to
selection of chemotherapy
for patients with ovarian
cancer in clinical trials at
the Moffitt and Duke
Cancer Centers in the near
future.


USF helps build estuary atlas


By Randolph Fillmore

USF

The health of estuaries in Florida is an
environmental priority for many and, to aid
in the quest for healthier estuaries, the
University of South Florida's "Florida Center
for Community Design and Research" in the
School of Architecture and Community
Design worked with numerous agencies to
create the "Tampa Bay Estuary Atlas"
(www.tampabay.wateratlas.usf.edu). An edi-
tion of the already online Florida Water
Atlas, the estuary atlas is. an additional
resource and tool for education and environ-
mental use.
According to Shawn Landry, a USF
research faculty member and the center's
interim director, the Tampa Bay Estuary
Atlas was designed to provide citizens, sci-
entists, professionals and planners with com-
prehensive and current information on the
state of Florida's estuaries with a focus on
water quality and hydrologic and ecological
data as well as recreational opportunities.
"Typically, the scientists and citizens
who live and work on water bodies have


found it difficult to gather information from
all the agencies' that collect water resource
data," said Landry. "The atlas is designed to
be a 'one stop information shop' for everyone.
who would like information on Florida's
estuaries and perhaps play a role in main-
taining and improving our vital water
resources."
To create the Estuary Atlas, USF part-
nered with the U.S. Geological Survey, the
Tampa Bay Estuary Program and the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Research Institute. Data
was compiled from almost 30 water
resources information partners.
The Tampa Bay Estuary Atlas allows
readers to access both the human and natural
history of Florida estuaries or explore estu-
ary resources by clicking on areas of the
Florida map or by searching a subject area,
such as sea grass, marine mammals or reefs.
Readers can also click on "Education" and
find lesson plans for teachers and informa-
tion for students in K-12.
"The Estuary Atlas was designed with
accessibility in mind," explained Landry.

UF Alzheimer's Web site


provides information,



support for caregivers


UF wildlife expert:



Quail decline linked to


changing land-use practices


By Meredith Jean Morton
UF
Providing full-time care for a loved one with
Alzheimer's disease can be stressful for care-
givers and patients alike, but an online project
through the University of Florida's Telehealth
program helps caregivers overcome some of
those challenges.
"AlzOnline.net is an e-health project with the
primary focus of reaching caregivers of elders
with progressive dementia by providing informa-
tion, education and support," said Jeff Loomis,
coordinator of AlzOnline.net and associate direc-
tor of the UF Center for Telehealth, part of UF's
College of Public Health and Health Professions.
"By taking care of our caregivers, we are essen-
tially taking care of the health care system."
The site provides resources through its infor-
mation center and is attuned to caregivers' con-
cerns and interests. If new topics arise, the site's
medical and mental-health consultants post
updated information.
One recent area of concern has been to pro-
vide resources to Florida's growing Hispanic pop-
ulation.
"One of the most underserved communities
in Florida is the Hispanic community, because
they may not access the resources available to
them," Loomis said. "So what we've done here at
AlzOnline is to make inroads to the areas of the
state with larger Hispanic populations by partner-
ing with community leaders, educating them
about the disease and giving them a place where
they can get information about it, and in turn give
back to their communities."
The site recently was replicated in Spanish,
and online education courses soon will be offered
in Spanish, Loomis said.
"There has been a rise in the diagnosis of
Alzheimer's disease in the Hispanic community,"
he said. "In the Hispanic community, Alzheimer's
disease is looked at as. a mental illness, not a pro-
gressive dementia, so without education about
Alzheimer's, Hispanic caregivers may not know
what they are facing."
Two new areas have been added to the site.
One addresses the activities of daily living, which
focuses on the health of the caregivers, who are
often overwhelmed by the daily tasks of bathing,
grooming and feeding their patients while also
caringg for themselves. : .. .


Screening embryos for
genetic diseases during in vitro
fertilization offers couples the
best chance for a healthy child,
but a genetic glitch could poten-
tially cause doctors to misdiag-
nose a small fraction of them,
University of Florida
researchers say.
Citing concerns about the
accuracy of preimplantation
genetic diagnosis, the method
many practitioners use to pick
the healthiest embryos during
IVF, UF researchers set out to
study the procedure. Their work,
described during a recent meet-
ing of the American Society of
Reproductive Medicine, reveals
the technique is actually highly
reliable. But because there is a
slim chance a genetic abnormal-
ity can cause doctors to misdiag-
nose embryos, some concerns
still need to be addressed, the
researchers said.
Preimplantation genetic
diagnosis has been used for
more than' a decade to screen
embryos for hereditary diseases
such as Down syndrome and
other abnormalities. To do this,
one cell from an eight-cell
embryo is extracted and exam-
ined for chromosomal defects.
However, as many as half
S these embryos spawn cells with
S- different genetic information as
they divide, giving doctors an
S inaccurate idea of how the
embryo will continue to devel-
op, said Larissa Kovalinskaia, a
UF research associate with the
College of Medicine's IVF pro-
gram. While many embryos
with this abnormality called
chromosomal mosaicism -
S stop developing early, some go
on to be born. Because these
embryos' cells contain different
sets of chromosomes, doctors
cannot always accurately screen
them for genetic diseases,
Kovalinskaia said.
"As more data were coming
out, saying that as many as 50


The second, offered through a partnership
with the UF College of Pharmacy, provides infor-
mation on Alzheimer's medications. An online
personal medication record has been added to the
site.
"If you go to the doctor and he says, 'I want
you to take all of your mom's medications, put
them in a brown paper bag and bring them the
next time you come in,' what doesn't go in the
bag are the homeopathic and over-the-counter
medications," Loomis said. "Our personal med-
ication record allows the caregiver or health care
professional to record over-the-counter and pre-
scription medications, as well as the herbals and
home remedies, in a private, easy-to-access for-
mat online."
The personal medication record is convenient
for patients seeing multiple physicians.
Challenges of daily living and medication
management may cause someone to be placed in
a nursing home because caregivers feel they can-
not cope with the daily pressures.
About 75 percent of Alzheimer's patients
receive care at home, and only 10 percent of care-
givers seek support and educational services in a
face-to-face setting.
"Ninety-three million Americans access their
health care information online," Loomis said. "A
high percent of that 93 million said accessing
their information online helped them understand
their illness better so they could go back to their
doctor with the best questions possible so they are
best prepared to approach their situation."
With the rise in gas prices over the past year,
the availability of support and information online
has become increasingly beneficial to caregivers,
said Kathleen Luzier-Bogolea, director of the
Family Caregiver Support Program in north
Central Florida.
"One of the greatest benefits about this site is
the 24-hour availability of useful information
over the Internet," said Luzier-Bogolea, who
works with caregivers of patients with dementia
and other illnesses. She said caregivers accessing
both the English and Spanish portions of the site
have commented on its usability and depth of
information. About 10,000 people visit the site
monthly, Loomis said.
"AlzOnline stays in touch with the elder care
community," Luzier-Bogolea said. "Through that
communication, they provide the most accurate
and useful information for people in the throes of
a debilitating illness.""


percent of (IVF) embryos were
mosaic, we started-worrying
about the accuracy of preim-
plantation genetic diagnosis,"
she said. "When you take one
cell, does it represent the entire
embryo? What we've shown is
that we can rely on PGD."
UF researchers estimate
less than 3 percent of healthy
embryos are discarded as abnor-
mal and only 1.5 percent are
implanted with undetected
genetic defects because of
mosaicism.
To find out how big of a
problem mosaicism is, 'the
researchers developed a mathe-
matical model using data from
UF's IVF program and other
programs to illustrate the differ-
ent paths an embryp takes as it
develops. While half of embryos
turn out normal, with no
mosaicism, the other half pro-
duce irregular cells as they
divide.
Embryos that become
mosaic after their cells divide
twice typically stop progressing
by the time they have accumu-
lated eight cells. Too many of
their cells have chromosomes
that don't match and these
mixed messages lead the
embryo to stop developing,
Kovalinskaia said.
Embryos with only one or
two irregular cells still have a
chance to develop normally
though, she said. These embryos
tend to not develop this abnor-
mality until after their cells have
divided a third time, typically
the time when doctors perform
preimplantation genetic diagno-
sis. This is where the problem
with diagnosis occurs,
researchers, say.
"Our pathway concept may
help to explain the observed out-
comes during preimplantation
diagnosis," said Kenneth Drury,
director of the UF IVF and
'Andrology Laboratory and a
clinical professor in the College


of Medicine who was one of the
researchers. "When we biopsy
an eight-cell embryo, if we
choose (the one) normal cell in
an abnormal embryo, we may
think that embryo is normal and
transfer it.
"This occurs about 1 per-
cent of the time, which means
99 percent of the time we will be
accurate. Again 'the error is not
due to a technical mistake btit to
natural errors occurring during
early cell division in the
embryo."
Extracting test cells before
the embryo divides a third time
could reduce the number of mis-
diagnoses because of
mosaicism, the UF researchers
suggest. Improving culture con-
ditions could help too,
Kovalinskaia said.
But the small margin of
error shouldn't stop couples
from having preimplantation
genetic diagnosis, said Dr. Jamie
Grifo, a professor of obstetrics
and gynecology at New York
University. The testing can work
miracles for women prone to
miscarriages or who carry
genetic diseases, he said.
"If you are at risk for genet-
ic diseases, it changes your out-
look on starting a family," he
said. "PGD allows them to get
pregnant. It's a dramatic
improvement when it works."
More than 45,000 babies
are born each year with the aid
of assisted reproductive tech-
nologies like IVF, according to
the Centers for Disease Control
and Prevention. The use of IVF
has declined in recent years; but
Grifo said that is largely because
baby boomers are leaving their
childbearing years.
Technologies like preimplanta-
tion genetic diagnosis have
helped too, making IVF more
accurate, he said.
"There has been a lot of
progress," Grifo said. "It's
helped many patients."

It's quail hunting season,
but where are the birds?
Loss of habitat for the
northern bobwhite quail the
nation's most popular game bird
- is blamed for its sharp decline
in the Southeast, according to a
University of Florida wildlife
conservationist, who says
improved land management
practices will help restore the
species.
More intensive forestry and
agricultural practices, urban
sprawl, and other types of devel-
opment are important factors in
their decline, causing bobwhite
quail populations to drop by
two-thirds since 1980, said Bill
Giuliano, an assistant professor
with UF's Institute of Food and
Agricultural Sciences. Florida
hunters once harvested more
than 2 million quail each year,
but they now take fewer than
250,000.
Several nongame birds -
such as burrowing owls, crested
caracaras, eastern meadowlarks
and sparrows that share habi-
tats with bobwhites are also
experiencing long-term and
large-scale declines.
In much of the Southeast,
bobwhite numbers are only a
small fraction of what they were
only 25 years ago, he said.
Continued loss and alteration of
habitat through changing land
management practices and
development threaten the future
of quail in Florida and the
region. Similar problems are
affecting quail populations in
other areas of the nation where
the birds live in a wide variety
of habitats.
Giuliano said the length of
the hunting season November
through March does not
appear to be a major factor in
their decline. However, consid-
ering these habitat problems,
there may be a need for some
new scientifically based regula-
tions to manage the harvest.
"To bring the bird's popula-
tion back to 1980 levels in the
Southeast, some 81 million
acres of habitat need to be
restored, and we are working
with several public and private

agencies to encourage that, pri-
marily on private lands,"
Giuliano said.
Plans for restoring habitat
are being developed by UF
researchers in cooperation with
scientists at the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission, the U.S.
Geological Survey and the Tall
Timbers Research Station in
Tallahassee.
To educate landowners,
managers, hunters and quail
enthusiasts on. the ecology and
management of bobwhite, the
UF extension service and the
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Service recently
held a quail management short
course in Arcadia, Fla. Giuliano,
who coordinated the course,
said similar programs will be
presented annually.
Carlos Alfonso, a UF
trustee and outdoorsman from
Tampa who attended the short
course in Arcadia, said quail
hunting is a valuable tradition
that deserves to be protected.
"There has been a dramatic
decline in quail populations, and
we welcome efforts by.UF and
other public and private agen-
cies to restore this ecosystem in
Florida and the Southeast," he
said.
Giuliano said quail biolo-
gists generally agree that nest-
ing and ground-plant covers
needed for brood-rearing are
important factors across most of
the species range in Florida and
the Southeast.
"While the birds still thrive
on large, intensively managed
quail plantations in North.
Florida, their numbers have
declined in South Florida where
changing land-use patterns have
altered their preferred habitat,"
Giuliano said "In fact, the land-
scape has changed so much that
extensive tracts of land have
become completely unproduc-
tive for quail."
He said vast acreages have
been cleared for citrus groves
and improved pastures.
Concerns from urban residents
about smoke often prevent land
managers from using controlled
bums to control excessive plant
growth that may be undesirable
for quail. Foi example, palmetto


is beneficial for quail when it
covers small areas of pasture-
land, but it becomes detrimental
when the coverage is extensive.
Jim Selph, UF DeSoto
County Extension Director in
Arcadia, said many agricultural
practices, including livestock
grazing, are often blamed for the
loss and degradation of habitat
for quail and other wildlife.
However, in many rangeland
systems, grazing can actually be
an effective management tool to
create and maintain a good habi-
tat for quail, he said.
The ideal quail habitat -
often referred to as a "crazy
quilt" of plants scattered about
the landscape includes small
patches of bunchgrasses for
nesting cover, weeds for forag-
ing and other shrubs such as pal-
metto for escape cover, he said.
Selph, a livestock expert,
said moderate grazing, which
usually results in more open and
diverse rangeland, produces the
.best habitat for quail. Heavy
grazing, particularly when
shrubs and other non-forage
plants are being controlled, may
lead to a "golf-course effect,"
providing little forage for cattle
and no food or cover for quail.
"Unfortunately, there is no
magic stocking rate or number
of animals that will always pro-
vide moderate grazing intensity
and maintain the crazy-quilt that
quail need," Selph said.
Giuliano said habitat
restoration and possibly preda-
tor management practices can
boost quail populations.
Predators, which kill many quail
each year in Florida, include
armadillos, bobcats, hawks,
owls, raccoons and snakes.
Supplemental feeding,
another form of predator man-
agement, can help protect the
birds by reducing the time they
spend away from their nests
searching for food.
"Controlling imported fire
' ants, which are one of the lead-
ing causes of low quail numbers
throughout the Southeast, will
also help quail populations
rebound," Giuliano said. "In
fact, controlling fire ants in
heavily infested areas could
double quail populations."

Canadian team makes trip, wait,


worthwhile; rallies to upend


Bluejackets 49


-43.

The Vikings proved that Canada isn't just a hockey country by
knocking down a number of well-defended shots.


n oIIw.L.: Li:, r" lI'r :


It was a game that almost didn't happen and perhaps Admiral Farragut wishes it hadn't.
The Bluejackets welcomed Sarnia Northern High all the way from Ontario, Canada to Huntley Gymnasium on Tuesday for an international
showdown in one of the few number of high school match-ups taking place this week. The game was.delayed for almost an hour, however,
while the teams waited for officials to show up. Once they did, things didn't go so smoothly for the home team.
After trailing 24-19 at the half, the Bluejackets were able to find plenty of open shots, such as this one, in the third quarter and jumped in
front 39-33. Sarnia Northern, however, didn't travel all the way to the Sunshine State just for a suntan. They wanted a win and in the fourth
quarter, they went on a 10-0 run.to take a 43-39 lead. Farragut's shooting turned as cold as tie ponds up north and the Vikings hung on for
the victory,

The Bluejackets kept the score close for much of the game with
strong defense on Sarnia's ball handlers. .
