native nursery in Midtown St. Petersburg.


By Carter Chase
Staff Writer
Business development in
the Midtown section of St.
Petersburg continued this week
with the grand opening of Twigs
& Leaves, Pinellas County's first
and only, all Florida native plant
nursery.
Located at 1013 Dr. Martin
Luther King Jr. St. S., the garden
center, opened by Michael
Manlowe and Phillipe Piquet of
Roser Park, carries more than
100 species of plants native to
central and southern Florida.
During a special ceremony
on Monday, Mayor Rick Baker,
along with Deputy Mayor
Goliath Davis and dozens of
residents from adjacent neigh-
borhoods, praised Piquet and
Manlowe for their desire to set
up their business in Midtown.


"I've always felt the key to
success in Midtown has been
bringing in entrepreneurs,"
Baker said.
Piquet, a graduate of the
horticulture program at Pinellas
Technical Education Center,
said he was pleased to have his
business there.
"We are a community
store," he said. "The main
word that keeps coming back is
'community."'
Many of the plants offered
for sale at Twigs and Leaves are
low maintenance and help pro-
vide natural lush and colorful
landscapes that reduce energy
and water consumption as well,
as strengthen the ground
against storms and hurricanes.
The store also provides a
line of organic fertilizers, pesti-
cides and beneficial insects in
addition to offering regular


classes on landscaping and
plant care.
"We really want to pro-
mote eco-friendly gardening,"
said Piquet. "Instead of having
to use chemicals, we should
use what Mother Nature gave
us."
As part of the opening fes-
tivities, Melrose Elementary
School second graders, Jacquel
Walker and Ariel Lynch, made
short speeches and gave Piquet
and Manlowe copies of an arti-
cle and photograph about the
garden center that they worked
on for their school newspaper,
the Manatee Messenger.
The students then helped
Piquet and Manlowe demon-
strate an eco-friendly garden-
ing technique.
.Citing it as an example of
an alternative to using chemi-
cal pesticides in order to pro-
tect against garden damage,
Manlowe, Piquet and the
Melrose students released sev-
eral thousand ladybugs onto
the store's property.
Ladybugs are a natural
predator of aphids, tiny insects
that can eat away at plants and
crops.
"Okay, guys, go and do
your jobs," Piquet said.
St.Petersburg City Council
member Ernest Williams said
the opening of the store was the
result of a collaborative effort.--
"It's great to see people
invest their time, money) and
effort in the Midtown commu-
nity," said Williams.
St. Petersburg's Business
Assistance Center worked with
Piquet and Manlowe to estab-
lish the one-of-a kind nursery.
Signature Bank, which
Baker said has been involved
in several midtown projects,
helped with the nursery financ-
ing.
The center is closed on
Wednesday. Otherwise, it is
open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Monday though Saturday and
Sunday from noon to 6 p.m.


Code violations



force families



to find new



homes


Photo by Jessica Klipa
Residents at Chinook Apartments were ordered from their homes
after city officials determined that it was unsafe for them to stay in
the complex.


Fire officials took action
Tuesday in response to citizen
complaints to close a multiple
unit housing complex located at
2400 15th Ave. S.
Chinook Apartments is now
uninhabitable due to extensive
fire, safety and building code
violations. After responding to
various tenant complaints, fire
officials visited the site two
weeks ago and notified the own-
ers of the numerous violations.
"It was something that was
ongoing," said William Jolley, a
fire chief at St. Petersburg Fire
and Rescue.
After returning Tuesday,
city officials learned that the vio-
lations had not been corrected,
and, in fact, the situation had
worsened, requiring immediate
action.


The smoke detectors
weren't working and water dam-
age indicated that the electrical
work could have been affected,
according to Jolley. -
"It was at a poift where we
didn't feel like'it was safe for
residents to stay," he said.
The city has set up an on-
site triage unit to assist residents
in securing a safe place to spend
the night while also working
toward various shorthand long -
term solutions for residents from
the 30 to 40 occupied units. The
city's sheltering efforts will be
joined by assistance from sever-
al community service agencies.
The Chinook Apartments
are owned by Mr. & Mrs. Scott
W. Snow, Oldsmar, under the
name of Pinellas Housing, LLC.

Nearly 300 residents of St.

early hurricane party. Some resi-

-. of this year's hurricane season.
Several city officials who attend-
ed the forum urged residents to
be ready.
"It's reasonable to expect
that we are going to continue to
have these types of active hurri-
cane seasons for the next ten to
twenty years," said Gary
S' Vickers, the Pinellas county
emergency manager.

turned to the rea- "We've been delivering the
eting: the potential message for all those years.


There are fiore people here this
year maybe because you take it a
lot more seriously," said Vickers,
referring to the destruction
Hurricane Katrina left in its
wake last August.
Now, almost a year after
Katrina pounded the gulf coast,
120 unidentified bodies remain
in a refrigerated tractor trailer.
"For those of you who are
dead, I can do nothing but make
sure that the body gets to the
morgue," Vickers said, pleading
with his audience to take mea-
sure to avoid the situation.
"An emergency plan does
absolutely nothing if the popula-
tion doesn't act upon the advice.
We rely on your good sense to
decide what is best for you. We
just can't legislate common
sense," he said.
After Vickers delivered his
lecture on the importance of hur-
ricane preparedness, Police
Lieutenant Dean Horianopoulos
addressed the procedures of the
police department in the event of
a hurricane as well as other
instructions for the residents to
keep in mind.
"We try to stay ahead by
getting people in early," said
Horianopoulos, adding that
police officers must leave their
families to answer the call of
duty. Members. of the police
department leave their cars in a


designated parking lot and are
shuttled in to the station. From
there, they work until it is
deemed unsafe to stay and are
relocated to another Emergency
Operations Command station.
At this point, they are
unable to perform their duties
until the storm has passed.
"The toughest time for a
police officer is to not be able to
respond," he said.
Horianopoulos also instruct-
ed residents on evacuation routes
slightly altered due construction
on Treasure Island bridge.
Residents who live south of 44th
Ave. should exit via Pinellas
Bayway and those who live
north of 44th Ave. should take
Corey Causeway.
Instructions to re-enter the
island came from Tom Malone,
the Fire Department Operations
Manager. According to Malone,
ID checks will be used along
with color coded tags to confirm
who is actually a resident. The
measures will help to prevent
looting.
Even then, Malone's advice
went back to being prepared and
following evacuation orders.
"The best we can protect
you is for you not to be here. We
can rebuild houses. We cannot
put you back on earth," he said.

Military News

Marine Corps Pfc. William F. Devlin, Jr, son of Deborah A.
Nolin of St. Petersburg, Fla. and William F. Devlin of St. Petersburg,
Fla., recently completed basic training at Marine Corps
Recruit Depot, Parris Island, S. C and was meritoriously pro-
moted to his current rank.Devlin successfully completed 12 weeks
of training designed to challenge new Marine recruits both physi-
cally and mentally.
Devlin and fellow recruits began their training at 5 a. m., by
running three miles and performing calisthenics. In addition to the
physical conditioning program, Devlin 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.
Devlin and other recruits also received instruction on the
Marine Corps' core values -- honor, courage and commitment, and
what the words mean in guiding personal and professional conduct.
Devlin and fellow recruits ended the training phase with The
Crucible, a 54-hour team effort, problem solving evolution which
culminated with an emotional ceremony in which the recruits were
presented the Marine Corps Emblem, and were addressed as
"Marines" for the first time since boot camp began.
Devlin is a 2005 graduate of Dixie Hollins High School of St.
Petersburg, Fla.
Navy Seaman McKinley W. Manning, son of Judy and Darrel
McKier of St. Petersburg, Fla., and his shipmates made a port visit
to Hong Kong while assigned to the amphibious command ship
USS Blue Ridge, homeported in Yokosuka, Japan.
Marines and Sailors cleaned and restored the Hong Kong
Society for the Protection of Children building facilities and partic-
ipated in Morale, Welfare and Recreation sponsored events.
U.S. 7th Fleet Band performed concerts for the Yew Chung
International School and the Lung Cheung Government Secondary
School. The band also held an outdoor concert for 2, 000 people at
the Hong Kong Cultural Center in Kowloon.
Some crew members participated in the Wanchai Hash House
Harriers running event where participants traveled through forest
trails and crowded city streets. Others participated in the Meals at
Home program which gave them the opportunity to enjoy home
cooked meals with families from America.
USS Blue Ridge is the flagship for Commander, U.S. 7th Fleet
and serves as a seagoing command-and-control center for naval and
joint commanders during peacetime or conflict.
Manning is a 1999 graduate of Lake Wood High School of St.
Petersburg, Fla. and joined the Navy in January 2004.
Navy Seaman Recruit John Ryder, son of John T. and step-
son of Janile M. Ryder of Dunedin, Fla., recently completed U.S.
Navy basic training at Recruit Training Command, Great Lakes, Ill.
During the eight-week program, Ryder 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 phys-
ical fitness.
The capstone event of boot camp is "Battle Stations". This exer-
cise' gives recruits the skills and confidence they need to succeed 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 distinctly
"Navy" flavor was designed to take into account what it means to be
a Sailor. .

UF study: Asian swamp eel



little threat to state's $60



million aquaculture industry


By Chuck Woods
UF
The Asian swamp eel has been described as a voracious preda-
tor of fish that could threaten Florida's $60 million aquarium fish
industry, but the exotic eel is not a major problem after all, accord-
ing to a new University of Florida study.
"When we started this research about two years ago, we were
concerned that these eels might affect the state's ornamental fish
industry, especially if they invaded outdoor ponds and began feed-
ing on fish produced for the aquarium trade," said Jeff Hill, an assis-
tant professor with UF's Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences.
"These small ponds are densely stocked with valuable fish, so we
need to protect them."
An extensive analysis of the eels' diet at UF's Tropical
Aquaculture Laboratory in Ruskin shows that they ate a few orna-
mental fish being raised in ponds, but they preferred to consume a
mix of insects, small crustaceans, tadpoles and worms, Hill said.
Results of the study, which was funded by the U.S. Department
of Agriculture's Cooperative State Research, Education and
Extension Service, will be published later this year in the North
American Journal of Aquaculture.
For the study on the feeding habits of the swamp eels, Hill and
Craig Watson, director of the Ruskin laboratory, collected eels from
seven tropical fish farms in Hillsborough County and one in Polk
County. Then the stomachs and intestinal tracts of all the eels were
examined to find out what they were eating.
"We can now say that the non-indigenous Asian swamp eel
(Monopterus albus) compared to other predators represents a low
threat to the Florida ornamental aquaculture industry, and it repre-
sents less of a predation risk than we anticipated," Hill said. "We
recommend that producers continue to employ best management
practices, but aggressive control and eradication of the Asian swamp
eel is not warranted."
Jeff Carter, who operates Carter's Fish Hatchery in Wimauma,
Fla., said the UF research has helped answer a worrisome question.
"When we found a swamp eel at our tropical fish farm about
three years ago, we had no idea what was going to happen if they
were they were going to eat our fish, mass reproduce and take over


our farm," Carter said. "Now we know that they do not eat enough
fish to hurt our crop or mass reproduce. We have been able to con-
tinue business without concern about our future being jeopardized
by this aquatic animal."
Hill, who is often asked what to do if someone comes across a
swamp eel, said they are not dangerous to people, and the best
course of action is probably simply to leave the eels alone. He said
it is illegal to release swamp eels, or any other non-native fish, from
one body of water to another.
"Because they are not protected by law, you could collect them
if you wanted to," Hill said. "They are a food fish and considered a
delicacy in various Asian cultures I have eaten Asian swamp eels,
and they are OK."
He said Asian swamp eels are not true eels, but relatively
advanced fishes with eel-like characteristics. Unlike swamp eels, the
American eel, which is a true eel, has fins. Florida also has two
groups of native amphibians that may be confused with swamp eels
- amphiumas and sirens. The amphiumas have four tiny legs and the
sirens have two small front legs and prominent, bushy gills. Asian
swamp eels do not have legs or external gills.
Common throughout Asia from India to China, the eels are now
in Florida, Hawaii and Georgia, where there is a small population
north of Atlanta. Hill said researchers are not sure how the eels
entered Florida, but the fish is now established in at least three areas
of the state waterways in Homestead, Miami and the Tampa Bay
area.
"Swamp eels breathe air, can live in shallow bodies of fresh
water such as canals and ditches and often follow floodwaters after
heavy rains," he said. "During drought periods, the animals burrow,
into mud. Given their ability to survive cold winters in northern
Georgia, it's likely that the Florida population will spread even fur-.
,ther."
Hill said scientists are particularly concerned about their prob-
able invasion of Everglades National Park, where some believe they
would have a negative impact on native fish in the protected ecosys-
tem. "The biggest problem swamp eels pose for park managers is the
National Park Service's legal mandate to remove exotic species from
parks," he said. "Given the unique biology of swamp eels, they can
be difficult to eradicate or control once they are established."

Clearwater completes Myrtle
Avenue improvements
Improvements to Myrtle Avenue are
complete and the road will be re-designated
as Alternate 19 later this year. Motorists
traveling North and South through
Downtown Clearwater will find Myrtle
Avenue more convenient than Ft. Harrison
Avenue. The improved road has two lanes
moving in both directions and routes traffic
to the east edge of Clearwater's downtown
core.
"This should help alleviate some of the
traffic backups we're currently seeing on Ft.
Harrison through downtown. Those passing
through will find Myrtle a much more effi-
cient alternative," said Paul Bertels, Traffic
Operations Manager.
Myrtle Avenue improvements took
place between Lakeview Avenue and Fort
Harrison Avenue. Major infrastructure
improvements included replacing sanitary
sewer, enhancing storm water lines and
potable, commonly referred to as drinking,
water mains, re-construction of the road,
new sidewalks and curbs, traffic signal mast
arms and the re-construction of the CSX rail-
road crossing at Myrtle Avenue and Maple
Street.

City of Clearwater set to host
disaster preparedness forum
The City of Clearwater and the
Clearwater Neighborhoods Coalition are co-
hosting a hurricane preparedness workshop
called "Be Prepared: The Price of Paradise"
on Thursday, May 25 from 1-3 p.m. and
6:30-8:30 p.m. at the Clearwater Main
Library, 100 N. Osceola Ave.
The workshop will help individuals and
neighborhoods prepare for this year's hurri-


cane season. Hurricane experts will discuss
topics ranging from Community Emergency
Response Team (CERT) training to after-
storm water and food distribution. Disaster
planning assistance will also'be'available t6'
help neighborhoods assist their residents.
The Clearwater Neighborhoods Coalition
believes it is vital for neighborhoods to pre-
pare a neighborhood plan for their commu-
nities.
"Remember, it's not how well you pre-
pare, but how well your neighborhood pre-
pares that will ultimately affect your survival
and your property," says Clearwater
Neighborhoods Coalition President Sondra
Kerr.
For more information about the disaster
preparedness workshop, contact Sondra Kerr
at 447-9126.

Rays acquire RHP


Tyler Walker from



Giants for RHP


Carlos Hines


The Tampa Bay Devil Rays have
acquired right-handed relief pitcher Tyler
Walker from the San Francisco Giants in
exchange for right-handed pitcher Carlos
Hines, it was announced last Friday. Walker
appeared in all of last weekend's games ver-
sus the Boston Red Sox.
To accommodate Walker's addition to
the 40-man roster, the Rays announced that
right-handed pitcher Scott Dunn has been
designated for assignment.
Walker, 29, has made 130 career major
league appearances with the New York Mets
(2002) and Giants (2004-06) and has a life-
time record of 12-6 with 24 saves and a 4.78
ERA. Last season for the Giants he was 6-4.
with 23 saves in 67 appearances after step-
ping into the closer role when Armando
Benitez was' injured. He was 5-1 with one
save as a rookie with San Francisco in 2004.
Originally a second round draft pick of the
Mets in 1997, he made his debut with them
in 2002.
Walker appeared in six games for the
Giants this season and.was 0-1 with two
blown saves before he was designated for
assignment last Monday. He last pitched on
April 18 with two scoreless innings against
Arizona. ,
Hines was 1-1 with a 1.80 ERA in 8
games for AAA Durham this season. The 25-
year-old Hines was in his sixth season in the
Rays' minor league system.

Pinellas News Friday, May 5, 2006 Page 7


There will be no tsunamis, firestorms or mass
extinctions to spoil your Memorial Day weekend.
Although the Internet is rife with speculation
that a fragment of Comet 73P/Schwassmann-
Wachmann 3 will strike the Earth on May 25, nei-
ther the main comet nor any of its more than 40
fragments pose a danger to Earth according to
NASA.
"We are very well acquainted with the trajec-
tory of Comet 73P Schwassmann-Wachmann 3,"
said Donald Yeomans, manager of NASA's Near-
Earth Object Program Office. "There is absolutely
no danger to people on the ground or the inhabi-
tants of the International Space Station, as the
main body of the object and any pieces from the
breakup will pass many millions of miles beyond
the Earth."
However, one can see the comet falling apart
right before our eyes, thanks to NASA's Hubble
Space Telescope.
Recent Hubble images have uncovered many
more fragments than have been reported by
ground-based observers. These observations pro-
vide an unprecedented opportunity to study the
demise of a comet nucleus.
None of the comet's fragments will come
closer than 5.5 million miles to Earth during its
closest approaches May 12 28. That's more than
20 times the distance from the Earth to the moon.
The main fragment, designated fragment C,
will pass closest to Earth on May 12 at a distance
of approximately 7.3 million miles. It will be visi-
ble to small telescopes during the morning hours
in the constellation Vulpecula. NASA's Spitzer
Space Telescope will observe the comet in May.
Astronomers have been observing the comet
for more than 75 years. The trajectory of this
comet has been monitored and refined over time,
and its path around the sun is well understood.
Amateur and professional astronomers around the
world have been tracking its spectacular disinte-
gration for years.
Thecomet is currently comprised of a chain
of fragments, named, alphabetically, stretching
across several degrees on the sky. (The sun and
moon each have an apparent diameter of about 1/2
of a degree.) Ground-based observers have noted
dramatic brightening events associated with some
of the fragments (as seen in the image below) indi-
cating that they are continuing to break-up and that
some may disappear altogether.
Hubble caught two of the fragments, B and G,
shortly after large outbursts in activity. Hubble
also photographed fragment C which at the time
was less active. The resulting images reveal that a
hierarchical destruction process is taking place, in
which fragments are continuing to break into
smaller chunks. Several dozen "mini-fragments"
are found trailing behind each main fragment,
probably associated with the ejection of house-
sized chunks of surface material that can only be
detected in these very sensitive and high- resolu-


tion Hubble images.
Sequential Hubble images of the B fragment,
taken a few days apart, suggest that the chunks are
pushed down the tail by outgassing from the icy,
sunward-facing surfaces of the chunks, much like
space-walking astronauts are propelled by their
jetpacks. The smaller chunks have the lowest
mass, and so are accelerated away from the parent
nucleus faster than the larger chunks. Some of the
chunks seem to dissipate completely over the
course of several days.
Deep-freeze relics of the early solar system,
cometary nuclei are porous and fragile mixes of
dust and ices. They can be broken apart by gravi-
tational tidal forces when they pass near large bod-
ies. For example, Comet Shoemaker-Levy 9 was
torn to pieces when it skirted near Jupiter in 1992,
prior to plunging into Jupiter's atmosphere two
years later. They can also fly apart from rapid rota-
tion of the nucleus, break apart because of thermal
stresses as they pass near the Sun, or explosively
pop apart like corks from champagne bottles due-
to the outburst of trapped volatile gases.
"Catastrophic breakups may be the ultimate
fate of most comets," says planetary astronomer

Hal Weaver of the Johns Hopkins University
Applied Physics Laboratory, who led the team that
made the recent Hubble observations and who
used Hubble previously to study the fragmenta-
tions of comets Shoemaker-Levy 9 in 1993-1994,
Hyakutake in 1996, and 1999 S4 (LINEAR) in
2000. Analysis of the new Hubble data, and data
taken by other observatories as the comet
approaches the Earth and Sun, may reveal which
of these breakup mechanisms are contributing to
the disintegration of 73P/Schwassmann-
Wachmann 3.
German astronomers Arnold Schwassmann
and Aino Arthur Wachmann discovered this comet
during a photographic search for asteroids in 1930,
when the comet passed within 5.8 million miles of
the Earth (only 24 times the Earth-Moon distance).
The comet orbits the Sun every 5.4 years, but it
was not seen again until 1979. The comet was
missed again in 1985 but has been observed every
return since then.
During the fall of 1995, the comet had a huge
outburst in activity and shortly afterwards four
separate nuclei were identified and labeled "A",
"B", "C", and "D", with "C" being the largest and
the presumed principal remnant of the original
nucleus. Only the C and B fragments were defini-
tively observed during the next return, possibly
because of the poor geometry for the 2000-2001
apparition. The much better observing circum-
stances during this year's return may be partly
responsible for the detection of so many new frag-
ments, but it is also likely that the disintegration of
the comet is now accelerating. Whether any of the
many fragments we'll survive the trip around the
Sun remains to be seen.


Season of ups and




downs with a team




with expectations


The 2005-06 Tampa Bay Lightning gathered
for one last time Monday morning for exit meet-
ings with Executive Vice President and General
Manager Jay Feaster and Head Coach John
Tortorella after falling, 3-2, to the Ottawa Senators
in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Quarter-
Finals.
It was a season of ups and downs for the team
with high expectations following their Stanley
Cup Championship in 2004. But when the dust
settles on the 2005-06 season it will be more
apparent that Tampa Bay's season was still a suc-
cess. The Lightning made the playoffs for thethird
consecutive season, set a franchise record for most
goals in a season and had three 30-goal scores for
the first time in franchise history. Vincent
'Lecavalier, Fredrik Modin and Martin St. Louis
each eclipsed the 30-goal mark. Lecavalier's 35
goals were a career high.
Brad Richards had the best year of his young
career, setting career highs for assists (68) and
points (91) while leading the team in both cate-
gories. Over the course of the season he also set a
franchise record with assists in 10 consecutive
games with his assist on April 6 against Atlanta.
Another pleasant surprise for the team had to
be the emergence of rookies Ryan Craig, Paul
Ranger and Evgeny Artyukhin. Craig scored 15
goals and added 13 assists in 48 games during his


first NHL season and was the first Lightning rook-
ie to score 15 goals since Richards did so in his
rookie year. Ranger played his best hockey in the
playoffs, recording two goals and six points in
five games. He also set a franchise record for
assists by a rookie defenseman in a season with
17, passing Roman Hamrlik who had 15 in 1992-
93. Artyukhin established himself as a physical
force and a fan favorite on the ice in his 72 games
this season. He also netted four goals and 13
assists.
The Lightning reached other milestones in
2005-06. Defenseman Darryl Sydor was awarded
a silver stick when he played his 1,000th career
NHL game on February 28. He became the 205th
player and 73rd defense man in league history to
accomplish the feat. Tortorella also surpassed
Terry Crisp to become the Lightning's all-time
winningest coach on January 13 with his 143rd
career victory.
Tampa Bay also commemorated the 1,000th
game in the existence of the franchise January 17
at Los Angeles with a 4-1 win. The Lightning also
played their 500th home game in history.
The season came to a close with the team sell-
ing out 51 consecutive games dating back to the
2004 Stanley Cup Playoffs. Tampa Bay saw
20,815 fans witness Game 4 and 19,745 for Game
3 during the 2006 Playoffs.

appropriate eye protection for the job and that it is
used are also key components."
Many eye injuries occur because workers are
not wearing the right eye protection,. it does not fit,
or they are not wearing any protection at all.
Flying fragments of metal, wood, concrete and
other building materials, along with windblown
dust and debris, splashes from chemicals and
molten metal, hot sparks, optical radiation, and
even the everyday nail, are common workplace
eye hazards.
"Eye safety should receive continuing atten-
tion in workplace education programs," Dr.
Sieving noted. "Procedures for handling eye
injuries should be established and reinforced.
Also, poor vision can affect work performance and
safety. Workers should have a comprehensive eye
examination on a regular basis to help maintain
healthy vision, a first step in avoiding injuries on
the job."
NEI, NIOSH, and the National Safety Council
are cosponsoring Healthy Vision Month this year,
and are working in collaboration with the
American Association of Occupational Health
Nurses, Inc. Other organizations and businesses
are also joining forces to make eye safety at work
everyone's business.


Astronaut Eileen Collins is leaving NASA.
Collins was the first woman to command a space
shuttle and the leader of Discovery's Return to
Flight mission last year. She plans to pursue pri-
vate interests and spend more time with family.
"Eileen Collins is a living, breathing example
of the best that our nation has to offer," said NASA
Administrator Michael Griffin. "She is, of course,
a brave, superb pilot and a magnificent crew com-
mander. Beyond those qualities, she is both very
bright and modestly self-effacing about that fact.
And above all, she is possessed of a quiet determi-
nation to attain the very highest levels of accom-
plishment. I am proud to know her and will great-
ly miss her at NASA."
A veteran of four space flights, Collins' career
at NASA has been punctuated by firsts. She was
the first woman selected as a pilot astronaut, the
first woman to serve as a shuttle pilot and the first
woman to conini.ind a U.S.,spacecraft. :
"Eileen is a true pioneer in space and on
Earth," said Mike Coats, director of NASA's
Johnson Space Center, Houston. "Her service and
dedication to her country, to NASA and to space
exploration are an inspiration. She meets every

Toddlers exposed to cocaine before birth
exhibit no more behavioral problems than other
children their age, despite early predictions that
"crack babies" would grow up to be delinquents,
University of Florida researchers say.
Studying 3-year-olds exposed to crack and
powder cocaine in the womb and a similar group
of children who were not, UF researchers found
that disruptive behaviors in children actually
seem to be linked more closely to maternal
depression than prenatal cocaine exposure.
"In all of the various outcomes we have
looked at, people have expected very bad things,"
said Tamara D. Warner, a postdoctoral associate
in the UF College of Medicine and lead author of
the study. "These dire predictions were'made
about this group of kids. This study shbws there
really aren't the huge problems that we might
expect."
The researchers found that mothers, on aver-
age, reported a high number of symptoms of
depression, regardless of whether they used
cocaine during pregnancy, according to findings
published this month in the Journal of
Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics.
Biological mothers also tended to report more
behavioral problems than nonmaternal caregivers
and foster parents, who were caring for about
half the cocaine-exposed children by the time
they reached 3.
"One might have expected that caregivers.
who took on children with prenatal cocaine expo-
sure would've expected (more problems) and
reported a higher number of problems," Warner
said. "But that wasn't the case."
The researchers studied 256 children, about
half of whom were exposed to cocaine before
birth. Most of their mothers were poor and black
and lived in rural North Central Florida.
Poverty could explain why many of these
mothers showed signs of depression, and in turn,
depression could explain why mothers of
cocaine-exposed and non-exposed children tend-
ed to report more behavioral problems, such as
hyperactivity and impulsive behaviors, Warner
said.
About 5 percent to 10 percent of children
exhibit disruptive behavioral problems. But the
mothers UF researchers studied reported that as


challenge with confidence and an ever-present
smile."
Collins was selected as an astronaut in 1990.
She served as the pilot on mission STS-63 in
February 1995, the first shuttle mission to ren-
dezvous with the Russian Mir Space Station. In
May 1997, she flew as pilot on mission STS-84,
the sixth shuttle flight to dock to Mir. Collins com-
manded the Space Shuttle Columbia on mission
STS-93 in July 1999, the flight that launched the
Chandra X-Ray Observatory.
Her most recent space flight was as comman-
der of July's.STS-114 mission, the first shuttle
flight since the Columbia accident in 2003. During
the 14-day mission,, Collins and her six-member
crew tested new shuttle safety enhancements and
resupplied the International Space Station.
"Eileen is a gifted leader who knows what it
takes to get a team through the most difficult of
times," said Flight Cre e Operations Director' Ken
Boweri>o\. "All\ o us \\ill feel Eileeni's absence,
but regardless of the path she pursues after leaving
NASA, I know she will continue to exert a posi-
tive influence on the explorers of today and tomor-
row."


many as 46 percent of their children demonstrat-
ed certain disruptive problems, Warner said.
Mothers could be showing signs of depres-
sion because of their children's. misbehaving
ways, but researchers can't pinpoint whether
maternal depression causes misbehavior or if dis-
ruptive behavior leads to depression.
"If you're poor and you reed mental health
services, you're in bad shape," Warner said.
"Both sets of moms were reporting a large num-
ber of depressive symptoms and have been from
the beginning. And that is probably more likely
to result in emotional behavior problems for the
children.than prenatal cocaine exposure."
Deborah Frank, a professor of pediatrics at
Boston University's Boston Medical Center, also
noted that UF is the only institution studying
rural mothers, important because urban mothers
face different obstacles, such as violence, which
could potentially affect childhood behavior and
rates of maternal depression
"The very high rates of clinically important
depression in all the (maternal) caregivers are
striking," said Frank, who also studies prenatal
cocaine exposure. "We're finding that the most
devastating effects are from the postnatal envi-
ronment, not the prenatal environment.
"None of this research should be taken as,
'It's OK to use crack when you're pregnant,"
Frank added. "It's not something women do for
fun. It's something women do out of despair."
Tackling that despair is still a problem that
needs to improve, said Dr. Marylou Behnke, a UF
neonatology professor and co-author of the study.
Access to treatment programs and mental health
services is still poor for mothers, she said.
Behnke and Fonda Davis Eyler began study-
ing children exposed to cocaine prenatally in
1991. Their research, funded by the National
Institutes of Health's National Institute on Drug
Abuse, has debunked beliefs that cocaine-
exposed children would be malformed and not
have the same cognitive abilities as other chil-
dren. Last year the researchers reported that
cocaine-exposed children exhibit only subtle
problem-solving differences in school. The chil-
dren they studied, including the 3-year-olds in
the current study, are in their early teens now.
"There were really dire things that are being
predicted," Behnke said. "It's encouraging that
we're not seeing those kind of behavioral prob-
lems."


Each day, more than 2,000 U.S. workers
receive medical treatment because of work-related
eye injuries, with more than 800,000 eye injuries
occurring annually.
"To help promote eye health and safety at
work, Healthy Vision Month 2006 will focus on
what employers and employees can do to reduce
the number of job-related eye injuries," announced
Paul A. Sieving, M.D., Ph.D., director of vision
research at the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
Healthy Vision Month is an annual observance
coordinated by the National Eye Institute (NEI) of
the NIH each May to encourage Americans to
make vision a health priority.
"Workplace injury is a leading cause of eye
trauma, vision loss, disability, and blindness. The
resulting visual impairment can interfere with a
person's ability to perform his or her job and carry
out everyday activities," Dr. Sieving explained.
John Howard, M.D., director of the National
Institute for Occupational Safety and Health
(NIOSH) said, "Simple improvements in work-
place conditions and the use of the proper safety
eyewear can greatly reduce the number of eye
injuries. Identifying and removing or minimizing
eye safety hazards is a critical part of a good eye
safety program. Ensuring that workers have the

The region of the tropical
Atlantic where many hurricanes
originate has warmed by several
tenths of a degree Celsius over
the 20th century, and new cli-
mate model simulations suggest
that, human activity, such as
increasing greenhouse gas emis-
sions into the atmosphere, may
contribute significantly to this
warming. This new finding is
one of several conclusions
reported in a study by scientists
at the NOAA Geophysical Fluid
Dynamics Laboratory in
Princeton, N.J., published
Monday in the Journal of
Climate.
"This very long-term
increase in temperature may
seem small but is comparable in
magnitude to shorter time-scale,
multi-decadal changes that
many scientists now believe
contribute strongly to an
increase in hurricane activity in
the Atlantic," said Thomas
Knutson, lead author of the
paper and a senior research
meteorologist at GFDL. "The
challenge is to understand the
relative roles of anthropogenic
and natural factors in producing
these temperature changes-and
this study is a step in that direc-


tion-and then to determine
whether and how these long-
term changes in temperature
could be affecting Atlantic hur-
ricane activity."
The region, which extends
from 10 degrees N to 20 degrees
N in the area of the Cape Verde
Islands, has been identified as
the origin for a large portion of
major hurricanes in the tropical
North Atlantic, and is known as
the "Main Development
Region." Ocean surface temper-
atures in this region warmed
over the 20th century, roughly
tracking the global mean, or
average, but this region has
greater multi-decadal variability
than the global mean does when
looking at long-term trends.
The climate model simula-
tions are based on a new state-
of-the-art coupled atmosphere-
ocean model developed over
several years at GFDL. The new
simulations include improved
representations of a number of
environmental factors that can
affect climate, such as green-
house gases, volcanic eruptions,
solar variability, land-use
changes and atmospheric
aerosols, very fine particulate
matter in the air. More research


is being conducted to improve
the representation of these forc-
ings, and of the aerosol effects
in particular.
The new model simulations
used current best estimates of a
number of historical climate
forcing to simulate climate
variations over the 20th century.
In the Main Development
Region, the observed warming
during the 20th century is simu-
lated much more realistically in
the models that include anthro-
pogenic forcing than in models
with only natural effects.
The results suggest that the
century-scale warming tendency
in the Main Development
Region may have been caused
largely by anthropogenic forc-
ing, including increases in
atmospheric greenhouse gas
concentrations.
Other sources of anthro-
pogenic forcing include aerosols
and land-use changes. Examples
of natural effects are volcanic
emissions, long-term variability
of solar radiation, and internal
variability, such as the internal
processes within the climate
system.
Atlantic hurricane variabili-
ty and its causes is the subject of


intensive scientific investiga-
tions by scientists. Earlier stud-
ies suggest that warmer tropical
sea surface temperatures can
lead to hurricanes of greater
intensity. Other studies at
NOAA have concluded that
warmer sea surfaces is one of
several important factors affect-
ing Atlantic hurricane activity.
Ongoing research continues to
address uncertainties in the
observed trend, past climate
forcing estimates, internal vari-
ability and climate sensitivity. '
Other significant conclu-
sions of the new GFDL study
include findings that extend
beyond the North Atlantic.
Simulations of global trends and
trends in several other specific
regions also produced more
realistic results when anthro-
pogenic forcing was included in
addition to natural effects. An
example is the Indian Ocean and
western tropical Pacific, where
a regional warming trend has
emerged particularly clearly
during the past half century.
These conclusions support simi-
lar findings from earlier studies.

For years,, Florida State
University's College of Business
has received national recognition
for excellence in se\ eral key
academic areas, including risk
management/insurance and hos-
pitality. No\%, the college's
department of accounting is
accruing interest all its own.
The college's undergraduate
accounting program has made
Public Accounting Report's pres-
tigious annual rankings, reflect-
ing the program's increased
national prominence .and impact.
The program is ranked 24th on
Public Accounting Report's list
of top undergraduate programs
in the country.
When ranked against public
schools only, FSU's accounting


program rated even higher, at
20th. '
There are approximately
170 colleges and universities in
the United States with accredited
accounting programs. ,
Public Accounting Report is
the leading trade publication for
the accounting profession. It
bases its rankings of undergradu-
ate accounting programs on the
largest national survey of
accounting academics.
"We are proud of the nation-
al recognition that being ranked
in the top 25 programs in the
country brings," said Martin
"Bud'' Fennema, chairman of

Crist encourages parents Gallagher applauds House,


to promote safe prom



experience


Senate endorsement of


national catastrophe plan


Attorney General Charlie Crist last week
announced a free service for parents of teenagers
attending their high school's annual prom. Parents
can register through a website and send their teen
a free text message expressing those parents'
desire that prom night be an enjoyable, but safe
experience.
Promtext is an endeavor by the Century
Council and Teen Arrive Alive. Parents can visit
the Century Council's website and register for the
free text message that will be sent to teens through
their cell phones (if they are equipped to receive
text messages). The message will be properly
timed in order to assist each teen in making the
right choice to stay safe and don't drink.
"Prom night is an exciting time for our high
school students and their parents," said Crist. "It is
also one of the more dangerous evenings of their
lives. Promtext allows parents to reach their sons
and daughters at an important time when some
will be under peer pressure to use alcohol with
potenliall catastrophic consequences."
Proms are a regular feature in Florida com-


munities from the end of April throughout the
month of May. These events and post-prom activ-
ities mostly occur without incident, but some
teenagers have been involved in alcohol-related
crashes with devastating or lethal consequences. A
reminder from those who care most about their
teenager can potentially save lives.
"The message is simple," said Crist. "Teens
should hear their parent's voice when reading a
text message reminding them to 'Make the Right
Choice, Stay Safe, Don't Drink Under 21.' That's
good advice whether spoken or written."
The Century Council, based in Washington,
DC is known for its mission of "Fighting drunk
driving and underage drinking." Teen Arrive Alive
is a web-based service committed to saving lives
by assisting teens in making the right decisions
about alcohol consumption.
Parents may register for Promtext by visiting
the Century Council's website at: www.centu-
rycouncil.org/promtext/index.php.


Tom Gallagher, Florida's chief financial offi-
cer, Tuesday applauded the Florida Legislature for
approving a legislative memorial calling on
Congress to create a national catastrophe insur-
ance plan.
"The current insurance crisis is not a Florida
problem; it is a national problem that demands
national solutions. Like many of our Gulf Coast
neighbors, many Floridians are struggling with
higher insurance premiums or unable to find prop-
erty insurance coverage in the private market for
the upcoming hurricane season. A national cata-
strophe plan is a long-term solution for improving
our insurance market and reviving Florida's cata-
strophe fund.
"We have been through eight hurricanes and
suffered $30 billion in property losses but we are
not alone in enduring severe losses. With 115
major disaster declarations in more than 30 differ-
ent states over the past two years, we as a nation
- need to plan for the cost of future catastrophes."
The memorial, SM 1596 sponsored by Sen.
Rudy Garcia or HM 541 sponsored by Rep.


Dennis Ross, urges Congress to establish a fund
that would help pay for losses resulting from nat-
ural disasters that exceed a state's financial ability
to recover. Covered events would include hurri-
canes, earthquakes, typhoons, volcanic eruptions,
blizzards and ice storms.
In addition to calling for the creation of a fed-
eral risk-financing fund, the memorial promotes
the use of disaster mitigation tools and the ability
to manage tax-free disaster savings accounts. It
also calls for strong building codes and land use
management techniques, as well as well-coordi-
nated state emergency management procedures.
To increase availability of homeowners' insurance
coverage, the memorial urges allowing insurance
companies to accumulate tax-deferred catastroph-
ic reserves that would be used to pay policyholder
claims.
Gallagher first called for the creation of a
national catastrophe fund in 1993 following
Hurricane Andrew.
HM 541 sponsored by Rep. Dennis Ross, is
headed for the governor's desk for signature.
