Jackson out in Largo; Mischler




to return in Pinellas Park


0noro oy Larter unase
Largo mayor Robert E. "Bob" Jackson arid a supporter try to track
the election results of his race against Pat Gerard on a palm-pilot
during a gathering of his supporters at the East Bay Country Club on
Tuesday evening. Jackson was barely ousted by Gerard.


By Jessica Klipa
Staff Writer
Election results are in with
the exception of the provisional
ballots scheduled to-be released
on.Saturday morning.
The new mayors for Largo
and Pinellas Park are Pat Gerard
and Bill Mischler, respectively.
Largo's new mayor, Gerard,
who has served as city commis-


sioner since 2000, won a close
race against incumbent Bob
Jackson who received 3,058
votes to Gerard's 3,229.
Going into the election on
Tuesday, Gerard v. a-s positive
about being elected.
"I think the people of Largo
want a change," she said.
Now that her new position
has likely been confirmed,
Gerard plans to focus on afford-


able housing as well and a strate-
gic plan for the city.
Prior to Tuesday, Jackson
was also confident about the
results favoring his re-election.
"The city is doing great
under our leadership and I'm
proud of it," he said.
After the election, however,
Jackson said he was not pleased
with the voter turnout.
"I'm disappointed that 86
percent of the voters didn't care
enough about the community to
come out and vote," he said.
Jackson served as city com-
missioner before becoming
mayor of Largo in 2000.
"I'd like to thank-the people
of Largo for giving me the
opportunity to serve the past 30
years of my life," he said. (
In Pinellas Park, current
Mayor Bill Mischler won by a
large margin, receiving 3,000
votes to businessman Randy
Heine's 735 votes.
"I never took anything for
granted," he said. "I go into like
it's my first time."
Mischler is pleased that he
will continue his longstanding
service as mayor since 1998.
"I think the people have
spoken. They like the direction
the city is going in," he said. "It's
a city on the move. It's an excit-
ing time to be a part of this
development."

Skateshop hangout for kids


By Jessica Klipa
Staff Writer
Back alleys, ruts. and all,
make for the perfect skateboard-
er's hangout. But that's not the
reason kids in St. Petersburg
poured out the back door of The
Finest Skateshop on Central Ave.
last Saturday.
With skateboards in hand,
the young rookies, who don't
have the moves quite yet to chal-
lenge natural obstacles, showed
up to meet the pros who do.
Tum Yeto, a skateboard
group, appeared at the store for
an autograph signing and a cook-
out with the kids. After chowing


down on hotdogs from a cookout
funded by store owner, Tommie
Zam, the young audience
watched and skated with the
group at Lake Vista Skatepark.
But that's,only part of the
action that goes on at The Finest
Skateshop, according to store
customer Brent Barbato, 22.
"It's like family here.
Tommie [Zam] does stuff for the
kids all the time. He does it
because he enjoys it, not to make
money,'' said Barbato.
In fact, since Zam opened,
the store eight months ago, it has
been a hangout for kids who like
skateboarding.
"I keep them exited about
skateboarding,' he said.


Next weekend, on March
17th, Zam plans to hold a video
premiere, Bag of Sucks, put out
by Enjoi skateboards. Kids come
in to see the movie and draw for
a raffle. The winners get their
pictures posted in the store and
sent off to the company who sup-
plied the video.
On top of that, Zam lets kids
come in after school to do things
like take out the trash, help cus-
tomers and clean up.
"This is your store,"-he tells
them. "I guess that's what makes
me different," said Zam.
Zam, who used to be a
skateboard sales representative,
said he didn't want to spend the
rest of his life behind a desk so


he decided to keep doing what he
loves. That includes encouraging
kids to pursue their dreams,
"You can make a career out
of this," he said.
Zam's young customers are
on their way to becoming ama-
teurs. He introduces to sponsors
who give them free products to
promote the company when they
participate in local competitions.
Pat Daniels, 15, is serious
about skateboarding. Thanks to
his sponsors, he. has traveled as
far as California to compete in
tournaments.
"Hopefully, I'll go pro and
do this for a living," said
Daniels.
Some are more successful


than others. But Zam is all about
supporting them all.
"Kids nowadays just care
about getting sponsored," he
said. "I tell them to just have
fun."

Upcoming Event: On March
10th-12th, the Skatepark of
Tampa is hosting a pro contest
for a three-day weekend where
kids can hangout, eat with the
pros, watch boat races and par-
ticipate in a product toss. Tickets
for the event are on sale at The
Finest Skateshop located at 6574
Central Ave. Prices are Fri. $5,
Sat. & Sun. $10

Navy Airman Kristina L. Duvall, daughter of Angela M.
Duvall of St. Petersburg, Fla., recently completed U.S. Navy basic
training at Recruit Training Command, Great Lakes, Ill. with hon-
ors. During the eight-week program, Duvall 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 succeed in the fleet. "Battle Stations" is designed to galva-
nize 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 distinctly "Navy" flavor was designed to take into
account what it means to be a Sailor.

grounds of the Palm Harbor Shopping
Village to showcase their finest crafts. From
originalhandmade jewelry, pottery, ceram-
ics, pet and spa products, there is certainly
something for all tastes and budgets at this
show.
The Annual Palm Harbor Craft Festival
is a juried event which means that meticu-
lous care went into the selection of the par-
ticipants. From quality of craft to booth dis-
play, applicants were carefully screened to
ensure a high-quality event.
"Palm Harbor is a perfect place to hold
this event," said Helayne Stillings, Director,
American Craft Endeavors. "The turnout
that we receive from year-to-year is phe-
nomenal. This is one show we look forward
to hosting every year."
Stillings is not the only person excited
about this event. Michael Fischer, a scented
candle maker from Douglasville, Georgia is
also looking forward to participating in this.
show for the second year, "We did well

March is National Nutrition
Month; step up to nutrition
and health
March is National Nutrition Month -
the perfect time to Step Up to Nutrition and
Health. National Nutrition Month is a nutri-
tion education and information campaign
sponsored annually by the American
Dietetic Association. The campaign is
designed to focus attention on the impor-
tance of making informed food choices and
developing sound eating and physical activ-
ity habits.
Step up today by making healthier
lifestyle choices to improve your health and
the health of your family and you'll reap the
benefits for years to come. Small steps
equal big rewards.
Remember these key messages to eat
smart and stay physically active this month
and all.year long:
SThe food and physical activity choic-
es you make today and every day affect
your health and how you feel today and in
the future. Eating right and being physically
active are keys to a healthy lifestyle.
SMake smart choices from every food
group. Give your body the balanced nutri-
tion it needs by eating a variety of nutrient-
packed foods every day. Just be sure to stay
within your daily calorie needs.
SGet the most nutrition out of your
.calories. Choose the most nutritionally rich
, fpo0ds yp. dan from each food group those
packed with vitamins, minerals, fiber and
other nutrients but lower in calories.
SFind your balance between food and
physical activity. Regular physical activity
is important for your overall health and fit-
ness plus it helps control body weight, pro-
motes a feeling of well-being and reduces
the risk of chronic diseases.
SPlay it safe with foods. Prepare, han-
dle and store food properly to keep you and
your family safe.
National Nutrition Month reminds indi-
viduals that a registered dietitian is the most
valuable and credible source'of timely, sci-
ence-based food and nutrition information.

SWAT takes its message to
the beach
Students Working Against Tobacco
(SWAT) will hold its annual SWAT'
Sandblast Saturday, March 25 at Treasure
Island Beach, 11260 Gulf Blvd.
SWAT is the youth-led organization
that teaches other youth about the manipula-
tion and marketing efforts of the tobacco


industry. Developers of the original truth
marketing campaign, the group has a proven
track record. According to the 2004 Florida
Youth Tobacco Survey, middle school
smoking rates have declined 57% and high
school rates have declined 37% since 1998.
"The tobacco industry hasn't stopped
lying and deceiving people, so we can't stop
exposing the truth," said Alison Griner,
Chair of Pinellas County's SWAT. "Without
the money, we've had to focus on more
grassroots approach
The SWAT Sandblast is one of the inno-
vative ways SWAT gets its message out to
teens. While participants enjoy volleyball,
tug-of-war and other games, the leaders of
SWAT expose them to tobacco facts and
industry quotes. Free gear with the anti-Big
Tobacco message is also given away-
much in the same manner tobacco compa-
nies give free things to market their prod-
ucts.
Registration for teams and individuals
begins at 9:45 a.m., with events starting at
10:45 a.m. The event is free to youth in mid-
dle school and high school, and is co-spon-
sored by the City of St. Petersburg's TASCO
group and Steps to a HealthierFlorida-
Pinellas County. For more information, call
727-824-6947.

Bronson announces $3,9 million pot


seizure at 1-10 interdiction station


Fast-talking NASA spacecraft starts


final approach to Mars


Florida Agriculture and Consumer
Services Commissioner Charles H. Bronson
announced Monday the arrest of two men
accused of smuggling some $3.9 million of
marijuana into Florida in a truckload of
paper towels over the weekend.
According to officers with Bronson
Office of Agricultural Law Enforcement, a
truck containing the cargo heading east-
bound on I-10 approached the department's
I-10 Interdiction Station near Live Oak late
Saturday night. After being told by the driver
that the truck was hauling paper towels from
Texas to Orlando, officers noted during a
visual inspection that something was amiss,
'and a thorough inspection of' the cargo
detected 1,733 pounds of marijuana con-
cealed in 85 packages hidden on several pal-
lets with paper towels stacked on top.
The driver Jose Ledesma, 43, of
Mexico and a passenger Harry Gonzales
Quezada, 21, of Guatemaa were charged
with felony marijuana trafficking and
booked into the Suwannee County Jail on $1
million apiece. Each of the suspects had
California driver licenses.
Officers, who estimated the street value
of the drugs at nearly $3.9 million, empha-


sized that the investigation is continuing.
The department was assisted in the case
by the U.S. Drug Enforcement
Administration, the Florida Department of
Law Enforcement and the Suwannee County
Sheriffs Department.
The weekend incident caps a busy two
years at the Department of Agriculture and
Consumer Services' 22 Interdiction Stations,
where officers have recovered an estimated
$16 million in drugs, stolen goods and con-
traband at the locations, including a $7 mil-
lion cocaine shipment, $600,000 in stolen
medicines, 60 large-screen televisions and a
truckloa'd"of'pilfeted computer chassis.
Designed historically to keep plant and
animal diseases out of Florida by inspecting
the estimated 12 million commercial vehi-
cles that enter or leave the state each year,
the, stations are playing an increasingly
important role in homeland security efforts
as officers have detained several truckloads
of illegal aliens in addition to the seizures of
drugs and stolen goods.
A 23 rd Interdiction Station along I-10
in Pensacola is expected to begin opera-
tions this month.


NASA's Mars Reconnaissance
Orbiter has begun its final approach
to the red planet after activating a
sequence of commands designed to
get the spacecraft successfully into
orbit.
The sequence began Tuesday
and will culminate with firing the
craft's main thrusters for about 27
minutes today -- a foot on the brakes
to reduce velocity by about 20 per-
cent as the spacecraft swings around
Mars at about 5,000 meters per sec-
ond (about 11,000 miles per hour).
Mission controllers''at NASA's Jet
Propulsion Laboratory, in Pasadena,
Calif., and Lockheed Martin Space
Systems, in Denver, are monitoring
the events closely.
"We have been preparing for
years for the critical events the
spacecraft must execute on Friday,"
said JPL's Jim Graf, project manager.
"By all indications, we're in great
shape to succeed, but Mars has


taught us never to get.overconfident.
Two of the last four orbiters NASA
sent to Mars did not survive final
approach."
Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter
will build upon discoveries by five
successful robots currently active at
Mars: NASA rovers Spirit and
Opportunity, NASA orbiters Mars
Global Surveyor and Mars Odyssey,
and the European Space Agency's
Mars Express orbiter. It will examine
Mars' surface, atmosphere and
underground layers in great detail
from a low orbit. It.will aid future
missions by scouting possible land-
ing sites and relaying communica-
tions. It will send home up to 10
times as much data per minute as any
previous Mars mission. '
First, it must get into orbit. The
necessary thruster burn will begin
shortly after 1:24 p.m. Pacific Time
today. Engineers designed the bur
to slow the spacecraft just enough


for Mars' gravity to capture it into a
very elongated elliptical orbit. A
half-year period of more than 500
carefully calculated dips into Mars'
atmosphere -- a process called aero-
braking -- will use friction with the
Atmosphere to gradually shrink the
orbit to the size. and nearly-circular
shape chosen for most advantageous
use of the six onboard science instru-
ments.
"Our primary science phase
won't begin until November, but
we'll actually be studying the
changeable structure of Mars' atmps-
phere by sensing the density of the
atmosphere at different altitudes
each time we fly through it during
aerobraking," said JPL's Dr. Richard
Zurek, project scientist for the mis-
sion.

USF classified among top


research universities in nation


by Carnegie Foundation


By Jacqui Cash
USF
The Carnegie
Foundation for the
Advancement of Teaching
Released last week an exten-
sive revision to how it classi-
fies U.S. colleges aid uni-
versities. The University of
'South Florida is now listed
as a Research University
(Very High, Research
Activity), which is the high-
est level of classification in
the new system.,
Out of the 4,321 col-
leges and universities classi-
fied, USF is one of only 95
universities at the highest
level of research universities.
Of those 95 institutions, 62
universities are public and
33 are private.
"This classification puts
us in the same company as
the top research universities
in the nation," said USF
President Judy Genshaft.
"This growth and achieve-
ment is even more impres-
sive when we think that we
are in the same classification
as the University of Florida
and Florida State University
and USF is more than 100
years younger than those
institutions."
Before the change,


USF's basic classification
was Doctoral/Research
University -' Extensive,
which was the highest level
of classification at that time.
USF has risen steadily
through the five changes and
updates to the Carnegie clas-
sification system:
Doctoral/Research Extensive
(2000), Research II (1994),.
Doctorate-Granting I (1987),
Doctorate-Granting II (1976)
and Comprehensive
University and College
(1973).
Carnegie began its clas-
sification system in 1970 as a
tool for researchers looking
for a clear way to differenti-
ate institutions. Today, the
Carnegie classification is
regarded as the leading
typology for all accredited
colleges and universities in
the U.S. The foundation
relies on data from the U.S.
Department of Education,
the National Science
Foundation and the College
Board to place institutions in
the proper categories.
The foundation said the
change was necessary to bet-
'ter represent the changing
landscape of American high-
er education, which has
become increasingly more
complex.
Carnegie now goes


beyond a singular basic clas-
sification and uses five addi-
tional measures to further
differentiate institutions
from one another:
Undergraduate Instructional
Program, Graduate
Instructional Program,
Enrollment Profile,
Undergraduate Profile and
Size and Setting.
USF is categorized as
follows in the five additional
new listings:
Undergraduate
Instructional Program:
Bal/HGC (balanced arts and
sciences/professions, high
graduate coexistence)
Graduate Instructional
Program: CompDoc/MedVet'
(comprehensive doctoral
with medical/veterinary)
Enrollment Profile:
HU (high undergraduate)
Undergraduate
Profile: MFT4/S/HTI (medi-
um full-time four-year,
selective, higher transfer-in)
Size and Setting:
L4/NR (large four-year, pri-
marily nonresidential)
Other Florida institu-
tions classified as Research
Universities (Very High
Research Activity) are the
University of Florida,
Florida State University and
the University of Miami.

Son, grandson, great grandson


of Al Lopez to throw out first


pitch at Rays Home Opener


The son, grandson and great grandson of Hall
of Famer Al Lopez will throw out ceremonial first
pitches when the Tampa Bay Devil Rays host the
Baltimore Orioles on Monday, April 10 at 7:15PM
in the 2006 home opener at Tropicana Field.
Al Lopez, Jr., Al Lopez I and Al Lopez, IV
will throw the pitches in honor of the only Tampa
native to be elected to the Hall of Fame. Al Lopez
passed away at the age of 97 on October 30, 2005.
"It is our honor to have the Lopez family help
us begin a new era of Rays baseball," said Rays
President Matt Silverman, "The Tampa Bay region
enjoys a rich baseball heritage, and Al Lopez is a
cornerstone of that heritage. We are proud to con-
tinue celebrating his accomplishments to our sport
and to our community."
The senior Lopez joined fellow Hall of
Famers Ted Williams, Stan Musial and Monte
Irvin for the ceremonial first pitches in the Rays
inaugural game in 1998.


At the time of his death, Lopez was the oldest
living member of the Hall of Fame. As a catcher
for 19 seasons in the major leagues (1928, 1930-
47) Lopez caught 1,918 games, a record that stood
until Bob Boone broke it in 1987. As a manager
Lopez led the 1954 Cleveland Indians and 1959
Chicago White Sox to the World Series.

Rays, Moffitt Cancer Center


announce partnership


The Tampa Bay Devil Rays
and the H. Lee Moffitt Cancer
Center have agreed to a multi-
year sponsorship affiliation. The
partnership was announced
Monday.
"We are pleased to begin a
relationship with one of our
country's premier cancer centers.
We are particularly excited
because of the community out-
reach initiatives that are integrat-
ed into this partnership," said
Devil Rays President Matt
Silverman. "We are not only
focused on bringing more mar-
keting partners into the Rays
family, but also developing rela-
tionships such as this, in which
the community benefits as, well."
As part of this agreement,
Moffitt will receive in-stadium


signage at Tropicana Field and
the Rays will assist Moffitt in
fundraising for its foundation
through the Turn Back the Clock
Game this season, a youth clinic
at Tropicana Field, the Rays
Fashion Show and on-site jersey
auctions.
In addition, the Rays will
serve as a sponsor of Moffitt's
"Miles for Moffitt" race on April
8.
"The Moffitt family is
extremely proud to be partnering
with the Devil Rays as they enter
a new era," said Larry Feder,
Vice President, H. Lee Moffitt
Cancer Center & Research
Institute Foundation. "This rela-
tionship will not only solidify
our support of Major League
Baseball in the Tampa Bay area,


but provide Moffitt with an
opportunity to raise awareness
throughout Pinellas and sur-
rounding counties."
In 2001, the National
Cancer Institute awarded Moffitt
the status of a Comprehensive
Cancer Center in recognition of
its excellence in research and
contributions to clinical trials,
prevention and cancer control.
Additionally, Moffitt is a mem-
ber of the National
Comprehensive Cancer
Network, a prestigious alliance
of the country's leading cancer
centers, and is listed in the U,S.
News & World Report as one of
the top cancer hospitals in
America. Moffitt's sole mission
is to contribute to the prevention
and cure of cancer.


NOAA removes Goalith grouper from species of concern


list harvesting still prohibited


The NOAA Fisheries Service
removed goliath grouper from the
species of concern list in early February
because a recent status report showed a
significant increase in abundance to the
U.S. population segment. The report
also showed the species is re-establish-
ing throughout its historical range.
These positive enhancements are the
results of protective, management mea-
sures established over a decade ago by
state, and federal agencies. In spite of
this information, the stock is still con-
sidered to be overfished under the
Magnuson-Stevens Fishery
Conservation and Management Act.
Therefore, all recreational and commer-
cial harvest is still prohibited.


The NOAA Fisheries Service creat-
ed the species of concern list in 2004 to
identify species about which the service
has concerns regarding status and
threats but does not have sufficient
information to list the species as endan-
gered or threatened under the
Endangered Species Act. Twenty-five
marine species, including goliath
grouper, were added to this list.
The NOAA Fisheries .Service has
been monitoring the status of goliath
grouper since the early 1990s. In 2004,
a team of scientists from the service's
Southeast Fishery Science Center,
Southeast Regional Office and state
resource agencies prepared an assess-
ment that indicated the goliath grouper


stock in south Florida waters was recov-
ering. Based on that assessment and
inquiries from stakeholders, Roy
Crabtree, the Regional Administrator
for the NOAA Fisheries Service's
Southeast Regional.Office, directed
staff to prepare a status report for the
continental U.S. population of goliath
grouper. This latest report showed that
protective management measures
resulted in an increased abundance of
goliath grouper throughout its range,
and, therefore, the species was removed
from the'species of concern list.
"This is becoming a success story,"
Crabtree said. "Federal and state con-
servation and regulatory measures have
prevented elevation of the species to the


endangered or threatened status."
Management efforts began on the
species in the early 1980s when the
South Atlantic Fishery Management
Council prohibited spearing of the
species and the state of Florida imple-
mented an 18-inch minimum size limit
to protect juveniles. In 1989, the Gulf of
Mexico Fishery Management Council
implemented a 50-inch minimum size
limit. Finally, both councils and Florida
prohibited all'harvest of the species
from federal and state waters in '1990.
Federal fishery management councils
and individual state agencies would:
evaluate future regulatory actions.
doliath grouper is the largest of the
western Atlantic Ocean groupers. They


can reach a maximum length of approx-
imately eight-feet, weigh up to approxi-
mately' 880-pounds, and can live for
more than 35-years. The body color is'
brownish yellow, grey or greenish, with
black spots appearing on the topside of
its head, body and fins. Mangrove habi-
tat is thought to be the primary habitat
for juveniles (up to approximately three
feet), and adults are often found on arti-'
ficial reefs, overhangs, bridges, piers
and shipwrecks. In the western Atlantic
'Ocean, this species ranges from
Bermuda and the Carolinas (though
rarely) down through the coast of
Brazil, including the Gulf of Mexico
and the Caribbean Sea.


MBAs are making a comeback,


says FSU business professor


Attorney General settles with Ft.


Myers Inn over Wilma price gouging


By John Rogers
FSU
As the nation's economy
treks into the 21st century, it
already has faced a few obstacles
along the way. The dot-corn
bust, the terrorist attacks of Sept.
11. 2001. and a recession all
have made things more difficult
for job hunters throughout the
work force even those armed
with the once-coveted Master of
Business Administration degree.
But the MBA isn't DOA just
Net. In fact, it's making a strong
comeback, says a Florida State
University educator.
Students pursuing an MBA
sacrifice time, energy and, often,
a steady paycheck to their stud-
ies with the hope that earning the
degree will lead to a better salary
and more desirable career.
Patrick Maroney. the associate
dean for graduate programs at
Florida State University's
College of Business, says that
although the job outlook has
Been murky, there's smooth sail-
ing ahead for those who stick


i ith it and earn their MBA.
"Probably starting back
around 2000, some of the cachet
of having an MBA had dimin-
ished, and I think some employ-
ers were cutting back and so
the recruiting was down and the
starting salaries had 'kind of lev-
eled off." Maroney said. "But in
the past couple of years, things
have turned around quite a bit."
This turnaround has
occurred as employers have
shifted their focus back to
expansion rather than cost cut-
ting. In a recent survey, the
Graduate Management
Admissions Council, the organi-
zation that oversees the test stu-
dents take to get into a graduate
business program, found that
MBA 'graduates are receiving
some of the highest average
starting salaries since 2001.
"We have recruiters from a
lot of consulting firms, some
financial institutions, and gov-
ernmental agencies, so it's across
the board as far as recruiters who
are looking for students right
now," Maroney said.
Some of these recruiters pay


quite attractively. Case'in point:
the New York-based Goldman
Sachs Group, which awarded
$140,000 to each of its Class of
2005 hires. Out of those hires,
more than 60 percent previously
held an internship with the
investment banking firm an
opportunity that all students
should pursue, Maroney said.
"Students are .attractive to
employers if they have some
experience." he said. "'ln that
regard, the College of Business
has instituted some programs to
help make our MBA students
more attractive. We now have an
internship program. We have
about 44 full-time MBA stu-
dents, and the total number of
MBA students we have right
now is 260."
In recent years, that number
has been growing as well.
"We've had a growth of
about 2,400 student credit hours
in the graduate level in the
College of Business in the past
two years, and that's attributable
to the master's programs and the
MBA in particular," Maroney
said.


Attorney General
Charlie Crist Monday.
announced that his
office' has reached: an
agreement with a Lee
County hotel resolving
-the first price-gouging
case 'filed by the,
Attorney General's'
Office related to
Hurricane Wilma. The
Fort Myers Inn has
agreed to reimburse
guests who paid inflat-
ed prices during
Hurricane Wilma and to
change its ,business
practices.
Crist's office filed a
case against the hotel
last October, alleging
that room rates were
improperly increased
by as much as 108 per-
cent. The hotel, located
at 4400 Ford Street
Extension in Ft. Myers,
reportedly increased its
room rates after
Governor Bush,
declared a state of
emergency. for


Hurricane Wilma.
Florida's price gouging
statute requires that the
cost of necessities like
food, water and shelter
must remain at the aver-
age price of the 30 days
immediately preceding
a major storm like
Hurricane Wilma.
"Those fleeing
killer storms must be
protected from paying
inflated prices some can
little afford." said Crist.
"This settlement will
reimburse those who
were charged excessive
amounts for shelter and
serve as a warning that
Florida's' price gouging
statute will be vigorous-
ly enforced."
Ft. Myers residents
Kristen and Michael
Davis evacuated from
their home when they
lost power and water
service, and sought
.shelter at the Ft. Myers
Inn. They were charged
$129.00 per\night for


their room. Another Ft.
Myers resident. Cecilia
Murphy, evacuated
from her home on
October 22 to avoid
Hurricane Wilma and
wvas charged $109.00
for her room, a 76-per-
cent increase. The
Davises and Murphy
said they felt the
approaching storm left
them no other options
for safe accommoda-
tions. Investigators
found that several other
hotel guests also faced
substantially inflated
hotel room rate s..
SThe settlement
requires the :hotelto.
reimburse guests the
difference between the
amount they paid and
the 30-day average rate
of $61.99.'
Approximately '150
guests will be refunded
an average of $40 for a
total reimbursement of
more than $6,000..The
hdtel also agreed not to


engage in price goug-
ing. The agreement has
been approved by a Lee
County judge.
During the past two
record-setting hurricane
seasons, the Attorney
General's Office
received more than
14,000 complaints
through its price goug-
ing hotline. The office
initiated 72 formal
investigations and filed
15 price gouging law-
suits against hotels.
generator businesses.
tree removal companies
and other businesses.
Including the Fort
Myers Inn settlement,
to date the Attorney
General's Office has
recovered just under $1
million in restitution for
Florida consumers from
price ,gouging settle-
ments and other resolu-
tions. Other investiga-
tions and settlement
negotiations are ongo-
ing. Q'


Crist, legislators push public safety measures
,- ,'(',, t o r ,,. .p u s h ., ,. ,.'


Attorney General Charlie Crist Wednesday
joined legislative sponsors in calling for passage
of Ann-Nlurder legislation to protect innocent
Floridians from violent offenders who violate the
terms of their probation. Crist and the lawmakers
also urged the passage of other important public
safety legislation, including a measure to safe-.
guard abuse victims residing at domestic violencee
shelters and another making it illegal for citizens
to provide misleading information to law enforce-.
ment officers investigating certain crimes
Crist and the legislators said the proposals
would make law-abiding Floridians safer, and
urged the Legislature to give the measures speedy
approval. Joining Crist today were Senators Paula'
Dockery and Nlike Fasano, Representatives Joe
Negron, Jennifer Carroll and Michael Grant,
Florida Department of Law Enforcement.
SCommissioner Guy Tunnell and State Attorney


Willie Mleggs representing the Florida Prosecuting
Attorneys Association, as well as representatives
from the Florida Sheriffs Association, the Florida
Police Chiefs Association, the International Union
of Police Associations, the Police Benevolent
Association, the Fraternal Order of Police and the
Florida Coalition Against Domestic Violence.
"Our government was formed, first and fore-
most, to ensure the safety of its citizens, and pub-
lic safety must be our highest priority," said Crist.
"We cannot accept anything less than an unyield-
ing stand against those who would tear apart inno-
cent lives, families and communities' by their crim-
inal actions."
.The "Anti-Murder" legislation, sponsored by
Sen. Dockery and Rep. Negron, would make cer-
tain that violent offenders who violate probation
are returned to jail until a judge finds that they do
not pose a danger to the community. The bill cre-


ates a list of crimes that qualify a person as a
"Violent Felony Offender of Special Concern,"'
ensuring closer scrutiny under the new law. Crist
praised last year's' Jessica Lunsford Act as an
important first step toward protecting Florida's
children, but said the additional provisions of the
Anti-Murder legislation would make children even
more safe from sex offenders and predators.
Another priority piece of legislation emerged
from the investigation into Jessica Lunsford's dis-
appearance, which tragically ended in the discov-
ery of the young girl's body not far from her home.
As law enforcement investigated, relatives of the
man eventually charged with Jessica's brutal mur-
der were not forthcoming with authorities regard-
ing his whereabouts. Prosecutors concluded they
had no avenue to charge the relatives under exist-
ing Florida law. Crist is now pursuing legislation
that would make it a criminal offense to knowing-


ly provide false or misleading information to law
enforcement officers as they conduct felony or
missing person investigations. Violators would
face up to a year in jail ard a $1,000 fine. The
"False Witness" measure is sponsored by Sen. Jeff
Atwater and Rep. Grant.
The third measure, the "Safe Shelter" initia-
tive, would increase penalties for anyone who tres-
passes at a domestic violence shelter. The goal of
the bill is to keep abusers away from those they
have victimized by making the shelters more
secure for their inhabitants. Under the new legisla-
tion, violators would face up to five years in jail
and a $5,000 fine, a significant enhancement from
the previous penalty of no more than a $1,000 fine.
The bill has been endorsed by the Florida
Coalition Against Domestic Violence, and is spon-
sored by Sen. Fasano and Rep. Jennifer Carroll. I
