Mayor Baker and city- offi-


cials greeted the
Wednesday at Sweetbay
market in Midtown to an
the city's preparedness f


this year's hurricane season.
"We are constantly evaluat-
S ing our plan for the city of St.
S Petersburg," said Mayor Rick
Baker. "We've learned that we
can constantly improve it."
On the eve of the first day of
hurricane season which began on
Thursday, Baker commented on
S the steps the city has taken to
strengthen the plan. Recently,
A, 200 city employees took part in a
full-day post hurricane exercise.
The city has also implemented a
Reverse 9-1-1 phone system to
Scall residents, coordinated a new
satellite phones, Internet and
ham radio systems; distributed a
Hurricane Preparedness Kit
L through the city's utility bill; and
in conjunction with the PSTA;
organized a way to advertise that
essica Kipa transportation is available for
about those in evacuation areas.
rst day Despite the city's efforts,
Baker's message to the public
remained the same: people must
public do what they can to get ready for
Ssuper- hurricanes that may come their
ounce way.

City committed to


preserving Dali Museum


hF ol, Iy .i. lip ip
Dali Director Hank Hine celebrates the resolution unanimously
passed by the city council to build a new Dali Museum.


The city of St. Petersburg
adopted a resolution to create a
waterfront park plaza adjacent to
the recently renovated Mahaffey
Theater and a long awaited new
Dali Museum at the Progress
Energy Center for the Arts. City
Council's resolution was passed
at the request of Mayor Rick
Baker, following Governor
Bush's approval of the Florida
Legislature's second $4 million
appropriation to assist in funding
the new Dali Museum.
In addition to the resolution,
museum officials announced
they are commissioning the
architect to complete the plans
for the $20 to $30 million build-
ing,.-and intend to begin con-
struction by January, 2007, with
an opening planned for early
2009. The museum has now
identified funding for the project
as follows: $8 million in state
funding, $8 million in existing
Privately committed funds,
largely in place, $6 million in
Proceeds from the sale of the
current museum site to USF St.
Petersburg, $1 million in grants


from the federal government,
and approximately $5 in addi-
tional funds secured from pri-
vate and/or public sources
The 2.02 acre waterfront
park plaza will be developed
within the original footprint of
the former Bayfront Center
Arena. This would be in addition
to another approximately seven
acre waterfront park identified
by Mayor Baker and approved
by City Council one year ago at
the site of the current asphalt
parking lot 51. City staff is cur-
rently evaluating preliminary
designs for the park plaza.
Mayor Baker envisions a pre-
dominantly green open space
with some landscape elements
and infrastructure for outdoor
events, for up to 2,000 people
seated.
"The Dali Museum project
has received considerable sup-
port from many levels, including,
significant community commit-
ment through its fundraising
campaign and the recent state
appropriation from the Florida
Legislature and Governor


Bush," said Mayor Rick Baker.
"Through this resolution, the
'city is doing its part to commit
to the redevelopment of this
waterfront park plaza, which
will serve as a major new
amenity for both the Dali
Museum and the entire
Progress Energy Center for the
Arts."
"With the .help of the
Governor, Mayor Baker, and
our friends in the legislative
and private community, the
Dali Museum is poised to enter
a new and significant era," said
Thomas A. James, president of
the Dali Museum Board of
Trustees. "Furthermore, we
need other leaders in the com-
munity to step forward now
with additional contributions."
"The new Dali Museum
will provide a benchmark for
excellence in the state of
Florida, with a painting collec-
tion of global importance, stel-
lar architecture provided by
Yann Weymouth, inspirational
exhibitions and rewarding edu-
cational experiences," said
Hank Hine.
Already an engine of eco-
nomic benefit to the area by
providing an impact of $57 mil-
lion to Pinellas County, and
another $50 million to the state
at large, the Dali is planning to
accommodate mans more visi-
tors to the museum. "We hope
we will create what was once
called the Bilbao Effect," Hine
said, referring to a world class
museum built in northern
Spain, "but which we hope will
soon be called the St.
Petersburg Effect."
As well, the museum will
retool its educational and visi-
tor orientation programs to pro-
vide significant learning experi-
ences to both visitors and
locals. "Dali is all about indi-
vidual perception," Hine said.
"It's about learning how to see
things differently and then hav-
ing the confidence to defend
your own view. This is a lesson
that is valuable to everyone."


do so much," Baker said. "It
really is incumbent upon the cit-
izens to be prepared for hurri-
cane season.
Baker urged citizens to
make a plan, identify their hurri-
cane evacuation zone, register
for transportation or special
needs assistance in advance and
buy the proper supplies .to sus-
tain them in the event of a hurri-
cane.
Chief Robert Ballou, the
head of the Emergency
Management Department of the
St. Petersburg Fire Department's
search and Rescue Division,
echoed Baker's call for citizens
to take personal responsibility in
preparing for hurricanes.
"It's no story to us of what
the possibilities of a storm may
bring," he said.
Ballou explained that fami-
lies should have one gallon of
water per person, per day on
hand as well as 5-7 days of non-
perishable food. He also encour-
aged residents to, help their
neighbors know what they
should do to be prepared and


even offered to let his depart-
ment handle any questions or
concerns. Ballou's efforts were
geared toward preventing a pile
up of people in line for assis-
tance in the aftermath of hurri-
cane.
To assist residents before
the storm hits, the city began
what Baker called a "unique
partnership" with Sweetbay
supermarket in Midtown.
Tony Brown, the store's
manager, drew attention to the
hurricane preparedness items on
display in the supermarket. A
special section of the store will
be designated to stock anything
from mosquito repellant, paper
plates and cups, work gloves and
much more.
"We will have the products
if you are threatened by a hurri-
cane," said Brown, assuring the
residents of Midtown that trucks
from outside the city will be dis-
patched to bring in more sup-
plies if needed.


Low home sales and


-high fuel prices hit


consumer


confidence


By Cathy Keen
UF
Consumer confidence
among Floridians in May did not
budge from its April level of 86,
the likely result of a downturn in
the housing market and contin-
ued high fuel prices, University
of Florida economists report.
"Confidence remains low as
gas prices remain near historical
highs with no sign that they will
retreat any time soon," said
Chris McCarty, director of the
survey research center at UF's
Bureau of Economic and
Business Research. "We are also
seeing an anticipated softening
in the real estate market, particu-
larly among those using Florida
real estate as an investment:"
Existing home sales are
down and inventories are up,
McCarty said. New home sales
are sluggish considering the
incentives builders must offer to
lure buyers, he said.
There were changes within
the five indexes that make up
consumer confidence, however,
he said. Perceptions of personal
finances now compared with a
year ago rose five points to 89,
and perceptions of whether it is a
good time to .buy big-ticket
items rose one point to 103. But
the gains were offset by 'a
decline in expectations about
U.S. business conditions over
the next year, which fell four
points to 72, and expectations of
U.S. business conditions over
the next five years, which fell
two points to 76. Expectations
about future personal finances
remained unchanged at 92.
And although consumer
confidence remained unchanged
among Floridians as a whole,
there were large differences in
subgroups.
There was a one-point
increase in confidence among
households making more than


$30,000 annually, while those
making less than $30,000
declined eight points to 67,
McCarty said.
"This was particularly pro-
nounced when looking at per-
sonal finances how compared to
a year ago, which fellamong
lower income households by 18
points," he said. "In contrast,
overall confidence among
Florida seniors rose .by two
points to 83, based on increased
optimism about personal
finances."
In the future, McCarty
expects consumer confidence to
stay in the mid-80s and.perhaps
decline further, he said. Fuel
prices are expected to remain
high over the summer and the
real estate market will continue
to decline as interest rates rise
'and inventories build, particular-,
ly those of condos, he said.
"These factors, combined
with the potential for an active
hurricane season, may spell trou-
ble for Florida consumers in the
months ahead," he said.
he research center conducts
the Florida Consumer Attitude
survey monthly. Respondents
are 18 or older and live in house-
holds telephoned randomly. The
preliminary index for May was
conducted from 416 responses.
The error rate is plus or minus 5
percent.
Consumer confidence is
designed to help predict buying
patterns by measuring the mood
of consumers toward purchas-
ing. Although other economic
indicators also predict buying
patterns, consumer confidence
tends to be available sooner.
The index is benchmarked
to 1966, so a value of 100 repre-
sents the same level of confi-
dence for the year. The value of
the index is in comparing
changes over time rather than
looking at an isolated month.

Belleair Beach water quality
receives additional funding
The Southwest Florida 'Management
District's Governing Board agreed to
increase funding for a cooperative funding
project with the city of Belleair Beach to
reduce flooding and improve water quality.
The project's budget has been increased from
$100,000 to $192,000 because the bids the
city received for the project exceeded the
available funding. The cost will be divided
equally between Belleair Beach and the
District's Pinellas Anclote River Basin with
the Basin Board contributing up to $96,000.
The project will upgrade teh city's stormwa-
ter management-system near 12 th Street.
The roadways and stormwater infra-
structure in the area experiences heavy sedi-
ment and pollution loading from Gulf
Boulevard. The sediment-laden runoff flows
directly into an outfall pipe and into
Clearwater Harbor. Infastructure improve-
ments include adding inlest and storm pip-
ing, an Continuous Deflection Separation
(CDS) unit which will treat stormwater
runoff, and the associated roadway recon-
truction.
The city is responsible for all phases of
the project, design, permitting and construc-
tion, as well as hiring consultants and con-
tractors. City workers will also conduct the
routine maintenance on the CDS unit, such
as cleaning out the sediment removed from
the stormwater runoff.
The project's completion date was also
extended by a year. The new completion date
is December 2007.

New under the sun USF biologists




identify new species of sea slug


By Randolph Fillmore
USF
The lettuce sea slug, Elysia
crispata, a species living in the
Florida Keys, the Caribbean and
South America, is well known to
aquarists and biologists, having
been identified and named in
1863. However, recent compar-
isons between E. crispata, col-
lected from the Florida Keys,
with sea slugs collected from St.
Thomas in the Virgin Islands,
reveal differences (both in mor-
phology and DNA) significant

30,000 surveys at 25 parks
throughout the state at four dif-

Elysia clarki named for the late
Kerry B. Clark, biologist and
professor at the Florida Institute

Sea slugs are relatively
small, colorful, shell-less
denizens of mainly tropical
waters. They creep or sometimes
swim in shallow waters and eat
small animals and plant life. The
newly named species may be

*Overall, visitors were sat-
isfied with the quality of ser-
vices that were seen as important
to their Florida state park experi-
ence, reporting high levels of
satisfaction with the beauty of
the parks, cleanliness of the park
areas and facilities, and friendli-
ness and helpfulness of the uni-
formed park staff.
"The findings of this study
are valuable to the Florida Park
Service as they make resoiurwe
decisions to improve visitors'
overall park experiences," said
Cheryl Beeler, an associate pro-
fessor in FSU's Program in
Recreation and Leisure Services
Administration and a researcher
on the project.
Florida's state parks system
is one of the largest in the coun-
try, with 159 parks that span
more than 723,000 acres and 100
miles of beach.
In addition to Beeler, other
members of the FSU department
of sport management, recreation
management and physical edu-
cation who were involved in the
project were Joohyun Lee, an
assistant professor, and Rosie
Keween, an assistant in recre-
ation management. The depart-
ment is part of the university's

in an upscale, comfortable envi-
ronment. "No matter how long
you have worked in your current
job or in another career, it is
never too late to become an
entrepreneur," said Lynn
Johnson, co-owner.
According to Goliath J.
Davis III, the city's Deputy
Mayor for Midtown Economic
Development, "We are pleased
to lend our support for this new
endeavor in one of our Midtown
neighborhoods, especially since
Mrs. Johnson was born in
Midtown and wants to be a part
of the renaissance there."
The city of St. Petersburg
Business Assistance Center has
been working along with the
House of Styles owners during
the planning stages through the
grand opening of this new com-
munity-oriented hair salon and
barber shop.


According to Skip Pierce,
chair of the USF Department of
Biology and lead author of the
paper published in Molluscan
Research (26:1) announcing the
new species, the existence of E.
clarki was unknown by the 19th
century biologists who named E.
crispata, although they and
biologists to come later may
well have collected and worked
on E. clarki, not realizing it was
a separate species.
"The two species are closely
related but genetically distinct,"
said Pierce "There are morpho-


logical, developmental, feeding
and molecular differences, and
very important habitat differ-
ences."
SThe two species do bear
observable similarities, however.
For example, both are green
because of symbiotic chloroplas-
ts from the algae they eat.
"Chloroplasts are the struc-
tures in plant cells that conduct
photosynthesis," explained
Pierce. "Sea slug cells capture
chloroplasts from the algae they
eat, take them up and keep them
working. When slugs are in the

Both species have white
spots and are often blazed with a
band of orange. However, their
parapodia (frilly structures locat-
ed on the slug's back), are slight-
ly different. Also, they live in
very different habitats, the food
preferences of the juveniles are
different, their microscopic
anatomy differs and the two
species have different digestive
system anatomy. Moreover, and
most conclusively, their genes
have different~ DNA sequences.


The differences between the
two slugs are such that the
Florida Keys animals represent a
new species, concluded Pierce
and colleagues.
Unfortunately, the new
species may already be at-risk.

Pierce. "The older species live

"Long term care administrators
not only need to develop ways
to identify potentially violent or
predatory residents, but also
need to develop policies and
procedures for dealing with
them."
Cohen pointed to data gath-
ered, by the organization A
Perfect Cause, published in
2005, that found the number of
registered sex offenders living
in the nation's nursing homes
had more than doubled between
2004 and 2005. These data trig-
gered Congressional hearings in
Washington that lead to the
request for a GAO investiga-
tion.
Cohen noted that the GAO
study found that long term care
facilities do not routinely
impose different supervision or
separation requirements on resi-
dents who are known offenders


or who have prior convictions.
Often, prior convictions are not
known. Moreover, only four
states have laws that specify that
long term care facilities must be
notified when registered sex
offenders become residents. In
May 2006, Illinois became the
first state to require criminal
background checks on all cur-
rent and incoming nursing home
residents.
"Our nearly three million
elders living in nursing homes
and assisted living facilities are
among our most vulnerable citi-
zens," concluded Cohen. "It is
our hope that this study will not
only emphasize the urgent need
for awareness of "the issue but
will also encourage states and
care facility administrators to
engage their resources to protect
the vulnerable."

Rays return




to the Trop




after rough



road trip


Photos by Carter Chase
If Ty Wigginton has proven he can be an everyday player for the
Rays despite the team's recent struggles. Wigginton has displayed
versatility playing defense by playing multiple positions and has
provided some pop at the plate as well. Through Tuesday, Wigginton
had 12 home runs this season, the second most on the team.


Good nutrition shouldn't go out



the window after a hurricane,



UF expert says


By Tom Nordlie
UF
Hurricanes and other natural disasters
can turn your world upside down, but don't
let them devastate your dining habits, advis-
es a University of Florida expert.
If there's no power or running water for
cooking, a steady diet of candy, chips and
take-out fast food might seem appealing -
not to mention easy but focusing on
healthy foods will help you weather the cri-
sis better, said Linda Bobroff, a professor
with UF's Institute of Food and Agricultural
Sciences.
"Good nutrition is especially important
when you're recovering from a disaster,"
Bobroff said. "To cope with high levels of
physical activity and discomfort, you need
.to provide your body with appropriate
amounts of all the nutrients, including water,
protein, fat, carbohydrates, vitamins and
minerals."
Floridians should keep enough food and
water to sustain everyone in the household
for at least three days, and up to two weeks,
especially in coastal areas, she said. Choose
items that need no refrigeration and require
little or no water to prepare.
It's important to find healthy items.your
family likes, Bobroff said. If you're not sure
whether tb include a food in your disaster
supplies, try serving it for dinner first.
"If you don't like canned spinach now,"
she said, "you won't want to eat it when your
roof is leaking and a tree is down in your
yard."
Bobroff cautioned that some items tra-
ditionally stockpiled for emergencies, such
as canned soups and some snack foods, may
be high in sodium, fat and/or sugar nutri-


ents people should consume in moderation.
"Disaster preparation is a great opportu-
nity to pay closer attention to nutrition label-
ing," she said. "You may learn that foods
you've eaten for years aren't as healthful as
you thought."
Other shopping guidelines Bobroff sug-
gests: Look for items that can be consumed
in a single meal or stored safely without
refrigeration, once opened. Take advantage
of coupons and store specials, but only if
you really need the items. Most important,
always shop with a plan in mind.
"When you're buying a two-week sup-
ply of food, just intuitively grabbing things
off the shelves probably will not work well,"
she said. "Instead, try developing menus for
.a few days' worth of balanced meals, then
buy enough food to prepare each meal sev-
eral times."
Tips on menu planning and healthy eat-
ing can be found in the latest nutrition
guidelines from the U.S. Department of
Agriculture, available at
http://www.mypyramid.gov, she said.
Florida International University experts
have prepared a cookbook focusing on
healthy recipes for disaster recovery, avail-.
able at http://www.fiu.edu/~health/hurri-
caneseason/Cookbook.pdf.
The USDA guidelines classify foods
into five groups grains, vegetables, fruits,
milk products, and meat and beans, Bobroff
said. Each group belongs in every well-
stocked emergency supply.
Grain selections should include whole-
grain products when possible, she said.
Nonperishable options include crackers,
flatbreads, oatmeal and cold cereals.
"It's important to eat plenty of whole
grains; and also fruits and vegetables,


because they provide sustained energy and a
variety of vitamins and minerals needed for
overall health," Bobroff said. "They also
contain fiber, which will help keep your
digestive system working properly during
this unsettling time."
Many vegetables and fruits are avail-
able canned, and dried fruits such as raisins
can provide a good substitute for candy.
When buying juices, look for varieties with
no added salt or sugar, she said.
Most milk products need refrigeration,
but there are a few exceptions, Bobroff said.
Fat-free dried milk can be reconstituted as
needed and shelf-stable liquid milk is avail-
able in single-serving containers.
Meat and bean selections include
canned or foil-packaged chicken,'tuna and
salmon, canned beans and peanut and nut
butters. Be sure to check the sodium and fat
content of canned items, and choose vari-
eties with reduced sodium and/or fat, she
said.
Don't forget to stock a few seasonings,
Bobroff said. A variety of salt-free season-
ing mixtures are available, and most
kitchens already have a supply of favorite
herbs and spices. Individual packets of mus-
tard and salsa are good condiment options.
S And if you find yourself unable to resist
an occasional candy bar. don't feel too bad.
"It's okay to indulge yourself a bit to
keep your spirits up, especially with choco-
late," Bobroff said. "After all, chocolate -
especially dark chocolate provides heart-
healthy phytochemicals, so small amounts
can be part of a healthy diet for most of us.
Recovering from a disaster is an endurance
event, so focus on healthy meals and snacks,
even when your choices are limited."

Historically a nemesis of the Rays' pitching staff, Baltimore
Orioles SS Miguel Tejada had just two hits in his first eight at-bats
against Tampa Bay this week. One of those hits, however, was a
home run on Tuesday night that helped lead the0's to a 7-5 win
over the Rays.

Tampa Bay's Crawford,

named Player of the Week
Tampa Bay Devil Rays ourtielder Carl Crawford and Detroit
Tigers rookie right-hander Justin Verlander have been named Bank
of America Presents the American League Co-Players of the Week
for the period ending May 28th. Bank of America, the Official Bank
of Major League Baseball, is the presenting sponsor of the
American League and National League Player of the Week Awards.
Crawford led all American Leaguers with a .484 (15-31) aver-
age, 15 hits, eight stolen bases, and 24 total bases.

ing a 0.56 ERA oaer 16.0 IP in twao starts.
Other candidates considered were Alex Rodriguez (.435, 4 HR,-

The study, published in the
June 2006 issue of Diabetes
Care. notes that type 2 diabetes
accounts for up to 95 percent of
all diabetes cases and, virtually
all undiagnosed diabetes cases.
Diabetes is a group of diseases

common cause of blindness, kid-
ney failure, and amputations in
adults and a major cause of heart
disease and stroke.
I Over the years studied,
about 26 percent of adults age 20
and older continued to have
impaired fasting glucose (IFG),

which blood glucose measured
after an overnight fast is high but
not yet diagnostic of diabetes,
increases the risk of heart dis-
ease as well as the risk of devel-

-"It's important to know if
you have pre-diabetes or undiag-
nosed type 2 diabetes," said Dr.
Larry Blonde, chair of the
National Diabetes Education
Program (NDEP), jointly spon-
sored by the NIH, CDC, and 200
partner organizations. "You
should talk to your health care

age of Mexican Americans is

nearly 40 percent of people
age 65 and older had IFG which

In the study, the researchers'
compared two slices of data, one
from 1988 to 1994 and the other
from 1999 to 2002. The data
were derived from a national
sample of U.S. adults age 20
years and older who took part in
the National Health and
Nutrition Examination Survey
(NHANES) conducted by the
CDC's National Center for
Health Statistics. Survey partici-
pants were interviewed in their
homes and.received a physical
exam with a blood test, which
included a glucose reading taken
after an overnight fast. The
NHANES is unique because it
includes a blood test that detects
undiagnosed diabetes and IFG
