Postal service changes


concern residents


Photo by Jessica Klpa
Michael Jordan, Suncoast district manager of customer service and
sales, speaks to residents about a study that, if implemented, would


route mail through Tampa.
By Jessica Klipa
Staff Writer
More than 150 residents
crowed into a room at the St.
Petersburg Main Library on
.,Wednesday evening, to voice
their concerns about possible
plans by the United States Postal
Service to transport mail from
St. Petersburg to be processed in
Tampa.
Currently, a study is under-
way to determine if the transfer
would allow the postal service to
provide the same service in an
effective manner and save $1.3
million. Due to the decreased
workload, nineteen positions
could be eliminated in St.
Petersburg and moved elsewhere
within the company.
Michael Jordan, Suncoast
district manager of customer ser-
vice and sales, led the meeting
and responded to the residents'
questions.
He addressed one major
concern about the fate of the St.


Petersburg post mark. Under the
study he said that post mark
would be available on request,
although he's not sure how that
would work out. Jordan also
suggested that the post mark
could be changed to Tampa Bay.
His remarks were not well'
received by residents who
wished for the city of St.
Petersburg to keep its "identity."
They complained that the
changes would not only lead to
the loss of a post mark, but also
slower service.
"Does anyone in this room
think this will increase efficien-
cy?" said Jack Gose, the presi-
dent of the American Postal
Workers Union and a retired
postal service worker.
Gose said that it didn't make
sense that the move from St.
Petersburg to Tampa would pro-
vide better service and save
money. He accused the postal
service of 'having "a hidden
agenda."
Jordan admitted that sum-


mary meant only that an esti-
mate of the savings.
"If we decide to proceed
with the study, then it may turn
out to be a little bit more a little
bit less," he said.
With that the residents
demanded to see more concrete
figures. Bob Jilek, who is also
retired from the United States
Postal Service said it was hard
to give an opinion on merely a
summary. The meeting, he sai,
was held too soon.
"We don't know what we're
talking about yet and neither do
you," he said. "How can we
respond to what you have pre-
sented?"
Mike Connors, the adminis-
trator of Internal Services for St.
Petersburg agreed.
"It's difficult for me to
understand a study that is not
available for review," he said.
Connors, who spoke on
behalf of Mayor Baker, called
for a clear and concise study, no
relaxation in the mail delivery,
an independent review to be
conducted and some idea of the
cost effectiveness of moving the
mail from St. Petersburg to
Tampa. He suggested that
instead the mail could be trans-
ferred from Tampa to St.
Petersburg to be processed.
Mike Sullivan, a bulk mail
entry unit clerk for the St.
Petersburg echoed that call,
arguing that St. Petersburg had
better scores than Tampa when it
came to mail processing.
"In no way have they ever
achieved what we have achieved
in St. Petersburg," he said.
As a postal worker for 20
years, Sullivan said the numbers
in the summary that Jordan pre-
sented didn't seem to work for
the postal service to continue
providing excellent customer
service. He said he didn't think
Jordan could make any guaran-
tees.
'"He doesn't run a truck. He
doesn't process the mail. He
can't make that promise," he
said.


Time for Rays to




rise and shine


Study underway


to treat virus


causing



cervical cancer


By Jessica Klipa
Staff Writer
A nationwide medical
research study is being conduct-
ed in Tampa, as a part of the
Women's Health initiative, to
determine if a vaginal gel is
effective in treating high-risk
human papillomavirus (HPV), a
sexually transmitted infection
known to be the main cause cer-
vical cancer.
"The beauty of it would be
that it would involve a treatment
that doesn't require a surgical
incision of the area," said
Dr.Greg Wilkerson who is in
charge of the study taking place
in Tampa.
Currently, Loop
Electrosurgical Excision
Procedure (LEEP) is used to
treat women who have abnormal
pap smears by shaving off the tip
of a cervix. The problem with
that, according to Wilkerson, is
that it could cause women prob-
lems in getting pregnant.
The idea, then, behind the
study is to find non-evasive way
to combat a common virus.
Eighty percent of all women
will acquire some form of HPV
in their lifetime, he said. But
only those with high-risk type
can develop cervical cancer.
According to the American
Cancer Society 10,000 women
were diagnosed with cervical
cancer last year and 4,000 of


those women died from the dis-
ease.
Twenty five to thirty percent
of the women who contract the
virus get rid of it themselves, he
said. But still, Wilkerson encour-
ages women to seek medical.
attention and be persistent in
getting yearly pap smears.
While the Federal Drug
Administration did last
Thursday approve a vaccine that
it to help prevent the virus, the
vaccine only combats two forms
of the most common high-risk
HPV. There are currently twenty
existing types.
At this point, Wilkerson
does not know who would be
eligible for the vaccination, but
he suspects that it would be
young girls who have not been
sexually active and women who
have but have not returned an
abnormal pap smears due to
HPV.
In the meantime, he will
continue this 27-day study to
find but if this new gel will be an
effective treatment for women
who already haie the virus.
"There's a good chance we
can prevent most of the major
complications of the infection,"
he said.
For more information on the
medical study or for women who
would like to participate, call
Wilkerson's office (813) 739-
1174.


Demolition crews


work to clear room


for a multi-purpose


condo complex in


St. Pete


By Carter Chase
Staff Writer
Even after beating baseball's
best team, the Detroit Tigers, 5-1
Wednesday, the Tampa Bay
Devil. Rays' record 'of 27 wins
and 39 losses showed that that
the ball club had lost nearly 60
percent of its games this season.
Through 66 games, the
team, for all intents and purpos-
es, had been on life support. It
had suffered injuries to several
key players, had dealt with
shaky pitching from the staffs
starters, and had put up with an
incredibly undependable
bullpen. Despite those facts,
however, the franchise was still
on pace to best its record from
last season.
While a run at the playoffs
hardly seems likely, the Rays
certainly have much to prove in
the remainder of this season.
New Manager Joe Maddon
has barely had a chance to lead
the team he thought he'd be
fielding back before the season


began; .Within the first month,
starters Rocco Baldelli, Jorge
Cantu, Aubrey Huff and Julio
Lugo were all hobbled by
injuries.
Although fill-in players
such as Damon Hollins, Joey
Gathright, Russell Branyan,
Greg Norton and Thomas Perez
gave it their all, none of them
demonstrated the skill that the
aforementioned starters have
shown in the past when healthy.
Now that some of the major
pieces to the Rays' puzzle are
back in place, we may finally be
able to find out what this team is
.really made of.
After wrapping up a 10
game road trip this weekend at
Philadelphia, the Rays will
return home to face the Arizona
Diamondbacks and Atlanta
Braves.
The upcoming homestand
will be one of the most signifi-
cant of the season. It will serve
as the first opportunity for the
organization to "showcase the
product it planned on providing


its fans since changes took place
in the front office last fall.
. The results of these upcom-
ing games at Tropicana Field
may also signal whether this
year's Rays will sink or swim
during the rest of the season and
should lend better'insight into
how well Maddon can manage.
Should health not be an
issue the rest of the way, there
are plenty of reasons for Rays'
fans to be optimistic about the
near future.
With Lugo, Baldelli, and
Carl Crawford, the team features
several players who are lightning
quick and are adept at using that
speed to make the most of their
opportunities on the base paths.
With Cantu, Huff, Jonny
Gomes and Ty Wigginton, the
Rays boast of bunch of hitters
capable of displacing many
hardballs into the bleachers.
With Catcher Toby Hall and
First Baseman Travis Lee, the
Rays have two of the best defen-
sive players at their respective

ing four art, workshops at St. Petersburg
inner city recreation centers as part of their
tenth annual Summer Youth Recreation
Center Art Workshops.
This year's theme is Surreal Healthy
Summer, reflecting AMERIGROUP's par-
ticipation by presenting a surreal view of the
Food Pyramid, allowing students to learn
about both art and health while having fun.
The Museum's Summer Workshops
began in 1996, when several St. Petersburg
communities were threatened with riots and
racial tension. The Dalf Museum saw the
need for a positive program directed towards
local youth living in volatile inner city areas.
The hope' is that through learning about the
creative process, these students will not only
develop an understanding of art, but also
gain a sense of self-confidence by planning
and creating art on their own, as well as
instilling civic pride when their artwork is
displayed.
In 2005 AMERIGROUP became the
sponsor for these workshops, and this year
their sponsorship will provide 60 students-
the largest number to date-with a hands-on


Historic Preservation Task
Force to hold summit
Interested in historic buildings?
Learn about the many incentives, pro-
grams and processes that encourage and
facilitate historic preservation. A summit
will show property owners how they can
gain from preserving. The summit is free
and open to the public on June 24 at the
Coliseum in St. Petersburg from 9:00 AM to
4:30 pm. 535 4th Avenue North.
Pinellas County enjoys a rich and
diverse culture and historic past. The histor-
ical, cultural and aesthetic heritage is among
its most valued assets. Few urban areas
today boast such unique perspectives of the
past and it is critical to the future of our
County that we preserve and maintain sig-
nificant elements of its history.
Recently, the Board of County
Commissioners adopted the creation of the
Historic Preservation Task Force to review,
analyze and facilitate the implementation of
preservation policies for historically signifi-
cant structure, neighborhoods, districts and


improvements throughout the County.
Comprised of preservationists from all
areas of the County, the Task Force is
charged with preparing such policies and
providing input and advice to the County
Commission as to their implementation for
effective preservation. The Task Force
serves in an advisory role to the Board and is
further charged with evaluating the criteria
for such historic structures and places.
The Task Force will not only look at
structures and buildings but places and com-
munities the cultural fabric of our County
for historical significance and preserva-
tion. It is the intent of the Task Force to
include various lifestyles and cultural diver-
sity on which this County was founded and
has grown as a part of this initiative.
Debit Cards: Convenient and
sometimes costly
Debit cards are a great convenience for
consumers. Pinellas County Justice and
Consumer Services Department offers tips
on how to manage your debit card.
With a debit card and personal identifi-
cation number (PIN), you can use an
Automated Teller Machine (ATM), to with-
draw cash, make deposits or transfer funds
between accounts. Some ATMs charge a fee
if you are not a member of their network or
are making a transaction at a remote loca-
tion.
Retail purchases can also be made with
a debit card. You enter your PIN or sign for
the purchase. Some banks that issue debit'
cards are charging customers a fee for debit
card purchases made with a PIN. Although a
debit card looks like a credit card, the money
for the purchase is transferred immediately
from your bank account to the store's
account. The purchase will be shown on
your bank account statement.
If your debit card is lost or stolen, call
the card issuer immediately. Many compa-
nies have toll-free numbers and a 24-hour
service to deal with such emergencies. While
federal law limits your liability for a lost or
stolen credit card to $50, your liability for,
unauthorized use of your ATM or debit card
can be much greater, depending on how
quickly you report the loss:
*Report a debit card missing before it's
used and you won't be responsible for any
unauthorized withdrawals.
*Your liability is limited to $50 if you
report the loss within two business days after
you realize your debit card is missing and to
$500 if you report the loss between two arid
60 days.
*If you don't report an unauthorized use
of a debit or ATM card within 60 days after
your bank statement with the unauthorized
use is mailed to you, you could lose all the
money in your bank account as well as the
unused portion of your line of credit estab-
lished for overdrafts.
S*Check your card issuer's policies care-
fully. Some offer more generous limits.
*When you use a debit card, federal law
doesn't give you the right to stop payment.
You must resolve the problem with the sell-
er.

Schools suspend poor






students to raise test






scores, study shows


By Cathy Keen
UF


Eager to boost state-mandated
test scores, some schools use disci-
Splinary punishment to prevent their
t worst students from taking the test, a
Snew University of Florida study
finds.
Students with a record of lower
math and reading scores on previous
standardized tests were more likely
to be suspended.at test time and for
longer periods than their higher per-
forming classmates, said David
Figlio, a UF economist whose study
is published in the May issue of the
Journal of Public Economics.
"Introduction of high-stakes
testing to improve school account-
ability has apparently led these
schools to disproportionately punish
low-performing students during the
testing period to try to 'game the sys-
tem,'" Figlio said.
With lengthy suspensions, stu-
dents are more apt to miss the exam-
ination and its make-up dates, thus
raising the school's overall average,
he said.
"Potentially low performing stu-
dents may be receiving longer sus-
pensions because although schools
want to have as many high-perform-
ing students as possible in school to
take the !examination, they hope to
have more low-performing students
stay home," Figlio said.
Schools are concerned about
test scores because they play a criti-
cal role in how much money they
receive and in some cases determine
whether teachers get bonuses, he
said.


"People choose where they want
to send their children to school and
where they want to live based on
state accountability ratings, and prin-
cipals get promoted or demoted as a
result of them," he said. "The more
these scores can be manipulated, the
less meaningful these ratings are."
Using student testing to evaluate
public schools has been the biggest
educational policy change in the
United States in the past few
decades, Figlio said. It gained popu-
larity in some states in the 1990s and
later was broadened with the federal
No Child Left Behind Act of 2002,
which provides rewards and sanc-
tions to schools based on how well
students perform.
Figlio's study analyzed suspen-
sion rates of students involved in
41,803 incidents at 504 elementary,
middle and high schools in Florida
from 1996 through 2000, the first
four years after the Florida
Comprehensive Assessment Test, or
FCAT, was introduced.
He compared the disciplinary
actions taken against pairs of stu-
dents suspended for the same kind of
incident to determine whether the
suspensions were influenced by test
scores a year before. In nearly 60
percent the two students received
different punishments.
Students with the lowest pre-
dicted scores in reading and mathe-
matics on the FCAT were suspended
for an average of 2.35 days, with 23
percent receiving sentences lasting
one week or longer, while the better
students averaged 1.91-day suspen-
sions, with 18 percent receiving sus-
pensions of one week or longer.


Since the introduction of the
FCAT, however, Florida has changed
its accountability rules so schools
will have no incentive to keep lower-
performing students out of the test.
Since 2002, Florida's new account-
ability system has focused on the
fraction of students who make gains
from one year to the next, rather than
on overall proficiency levels, Figlio
said.
While such disparities are
unlikely to be a problem anymore in
Florida, Figlio said, this is not the
case for the rest of the nation.
"Florida's current system is an
aberration as opposed to the rule,"
Figlio said. "The accountability sys-
tems in most states, and certainly
that of the No Child Left Behind Act
at the federal level, are very much
like -Florida's initial system in this
study."
The most popular way schools
manipulate the system is "teaching
to the test," Figlio said. Other poten-
tially questionable approaches that
have been documented include
increasing the calorie content of
school lunches during test week,
which helps boost academic perfor-
mance by improving short-term cog-
nitive ability, and moving poorer stu-
dents into special education classes,
which often are not required to take
the test, he said.
Discipline is another way that
school administrators maneuver to
exclude students who might hurt a
school's reputation, with the irony of
less productive results, Figlio said.
"If students are repeatedly and con-
sistently disciplined more harshly,
they may be more at risk for repeat-

Community



celebrates Bayfront's



100th anniversary

Mayor Rick Baker, Sue Brody and Representative Leslie Waters
celebrate Bayfront's 100th birthday.


More than 500 community
members. 650 hot dogs. 250
noisemakers. Five birthday
cakes. And, one parade. All this
together made for a great birth-
day bash in celebration of
Bayfront Medical Center's 100
years of service.
On Saturday, June 3, the
Tampa Bay community joined
Bayfront Medical Center St.
Petersburg's longest 'standing
hospital and Pinellas County's
only trauma center for an old-
fashioned block party. Guests
also learned about Bayfront's
historical significance, and
gained insightful health advice
from community partners at an
indoor expo.


In 1906, seven physicians
joined together to start the city's
first hospital named St.
Petersburg Sanitarium now
Bayfront. Today, Bayfront
responds to the healthcare needs
of the people of West Central
Florida by offering the latest
medical care in areas such as
trauma, rehabilitation, oncology,
cardiology, neuroscience,
orthopedics, obstetrics and
gynecology.
"We've come a long way
since 1906," said Sue Brody,
President and Chief Executive
Officer. "The hospital has grown
and the campus has changed
over the years, but a building
doesn't provide medical care. It's


the people in this building with
their compassion and expertise
who make Bayfront great."
Recent growth at Bayfront
includes the expansion of its
surgical services with 10 brand-
new operating suites specially
designed for general, cardiac
and orthopedic surgeries, as well
as a specialty urology room. In
addition; Bayfront will com-
pletely renovate two others to
support the hospital's growing
neurosurgery program. The hos-
pital is also expanding the
Bayfront Heart Center, featuring
state-of-the-art cardiology ser-
vices. Moreover, the hospital
plans to move Bayfront's obstet-
rical services inside the new All
Children's Hospital in 2009 to
offer the community unparal-
leled birthing services.
Bayfront Medical
Center is a 502-bed, not-for-
profit, teaching hospital.
Bayfront is also home to
Bayflite the largest hospital-
based flight program in the
Southeastern United States.
Bayfront has received numerous
national accolades, including:
the Gold Seal of Approval for
stroke care from the Joint
Commission on Accreditation of
Healthcare Organizations;
accreditation from the Society
of Chest Pain Centers; and
Working Mother magazine's
"100 Best Companies for
Working Mothers" for nine
years. Bayfront is committed to
improving the health of the
community it serves through
partnerships and leadership,
while providing healthcare ser-
vices that are driven by quality
and its values.

$1 million gift from Tom and


Mary James to endow finance


professorship


Prominent Tampa Bay busi-
ness leader Thomas A. James,
chairman and chief executive
officer of Raymond James
Financial, and his wife, Mary,
have given a $1 million gift to
Eckerd College to endow a
finance professorship. The gift
will be named the James
Professorship in Finance.
One-fifth of Eckerd's gradu-
ates major or minor in a busi-
ness-related course: business
administration, management,
business commerce, economics,
human resources, finance, inter-
national business, and market-
ing.
"Eckerd College is particu-
larly qualified to deliver a com-
bination of an excellent liberal
arts education and practical
skills that are necessary in
today's world," said Mr. James.
"Mary and I are thrilled to fund a
professorship at Eckerd. I have
always admired the faculty-stu-
dent mentor relationship at
Eckerd and the real value-added


experience it provides to stu-
dents who will become mature
graduates."
Mr. and Mrs. James have
been supporters of Eckerd for
over two decades. Mr. James
served on the College's board of
trustees from 1985-1991. In
1983, he established the Robert
A. James Memorial Endowed
Scholarship, one of the largest
endowed scholarships at Eckerd
College. Three years later,
Raymond James Financial estab-
lished the Raymond James and
Associates Annual Scholarship
for students with an interest in
business.
"I can think of no better
business leader than Tom James
for our students to emulate," said
Donald R. Eastman III, president
of Eckerd College. "We are
grateful for Tom and Mary's sup-
port that will help take this fine
institution to the next level."
This past January, Mr.
James was voted by his peers as
the year's top business leader in


the St. Petersburg Times annual
survey of regional business lead-
ership. Mr. James is chairman of
the Heritage Family of Funds,
and Raymond James Bank, FSB,
and has served as a director of
numerous other public corpora-
tions. He serves as the chairman
elect and board member of the
Florida Council of 100, chair-
man elect of the Financial
Services Roundtable, chairman
of the Chi Chi Rodriguez Youth
Foundation, board member of
the International Tennis Hall of
Fame, president of the board of
trustees of the Salvador Dali
Museum, and member of the
Board of Dean's Advisors,
Harvard Business School.
In addition, Mr. James has
been an active participant in the
United Way of Tampa Bay as a
member of the board of directors
and as founding chairman of the
organization's Alexis de
Tocqueville Society and the
1995 Pinellas County campaign.

Exercise improves mental


state of individuals with


physical disabilities


University of Florida scien-
tists conducting experiments
with mice have found evidence
that the body. naturally replen-
ishes small amounts of cells in
the eye essential for healthy
vision.
The finding may shatter the
belief that a cell layer vital for
eyesight called the retinal pig-
ment epithelium, or RPE, is a
nonrenewable resource, say
researchers writing in a recent
issue of Investigative
Ophthalmology & Visual
Science.
RPE plays a vital role in our
visual health by forming the
outer barrier of the retina and
supporting the function of cells
that receive light. Damage to
RPE is present in many diseases
of the retina, including age-
related macular degeneration,
which affects more than 1.75
million people in the United
States.
With evidence that the body
does indeed regenerate these
cells in-small amounts, scientists
can focus on ways to accelerate
natural healing processes to
treat sight-robbing injuries or-
diseases. *
"What this tells us is for
problems such as age-related
macular degeneration, we
should be able. to harvest stem
cells to help repair the damage,"
said senior author Edward Scott,
a professor of molecular genet-
ics at the UF Shands Cancer
Center and director of the
Program in Stem Cell Biology
and Regenerative Medicine at
UF's College of Medicine. "The
question is whether we can do.it
in a patient."
Scientists widely believe
that RPE is a finite resource.
The same belief used to be held
about brain cells people who


suffered from trauma, stroke or
disease formerly faced no hope
of growing new cells to replace
dead ones.
Then, in the late 1990s,
when scientists began to report
findings of brain cell growth in
humans and monkeys later in
life, focus turned toward under-
standing the mechanisms to
regenerate cells in the brain.
Now, UF researchers
believe it may be possible to
also grow new cells in the retina
to replace cells lost to injury or
disease.
"In people, retinal pigment
epithelium can become dam-
aged with age," said Jeffrey
Harris, a graduate student in the
molecular cell biology program
in UF's College of Medicine
and first author of the paper.
"Factors like smoking and diet
also come into play. The prob-
lem is without these cells, the
rods and cones our primary
cells for vision die. If we can
regenerate the retinal pigment
epithelium, it could make a big
difference in our visual health."
Scientists were able to
detect. that RPE cells indeed
appear to be 'naturally replen-
ished'in the test animals, by
transplanting bone marrow cells
from normal male mice into
albino females with two differ-
ent types of acute RPE injury.
Bone marrow contains stem
cells, which have the extraordi-
nary abilities to home in on
injuries and possibly regenerate
other cell types in the body. In
this case, the cells were trans-
planted to confirm that bone
marrow does regenerate the
injured RPE. It was easier to
track male, pigment-producing
cells in female, albino recipi-
ents, Harris said.
Chemical and microscopic


analysis showed the cells that
traveled to the injury sie and
transformed into RPE "inhdeed
had male genetic characteristics.
Furthermore, these cells were
capable of producing pigment
- a colorful indication that the
RPE could only have arisen
from the donor bone marrow
stem cells.
"We did not use a direct
model of age-related macular
degeneration," Scott said. "But
we now know that when RPE is
injured, it can be replaced in
certain situations. It gives us
growth factors, cell pathways
and other different places to
look at to find reasons why the
disease is occurring."
Researchers want to dis-
cover ways to mobilize an elder-
ly patient's own cells to-travel to
the injury site to make repairs.
"The dogma ,has been that
we're born with a fixed amount
of RPE, but there is growing
evidence retinal progenitor cells
exist in the adult," said
Lawrence Rizzolo, a Yale
University associate professor
of anatomy and experimental
surgery and of ophthalmology
and visual science who was not
involved in the research. 'To
derive cells of neuronal lineage
from cells of bone-marrow lin-
eage is significant, if the finding
stands up to the test of time.
Compared to RPE transplanta-
tion, there are a lot of advan-
tages if someone's own bone
irarrow could supply the cells,
because it's a ready source and
the cells would not be rejected
by the patient. Further, if bone-
marrow progenitors' circulating
in the blood could be attracted
to sites of disease, surgery could
be avoided."

Individuals with physical disabilities who par-
ticipate in regular physical activity benefit emo-
tionally from exercise, according to a University
of Florida study.
Led by Peter Giacobbi, assistant professor in
the Department of Applied Physiology and
Kinesiology in the College of Health and Human
Performance, researchers monitored 48 individu-
als from around the United States with various
physical disabilities who use wheelchairs. During
eight consecutive days, these participants complet-
ed questionnaires to assess personality and daily
evaluations of mood, physical activity and emo-
tional reaction to daily life events.
"On the days in which participants were more
active, positive mood increased and negative
mood decreased," Giacobbi said. "Further, on days
participants were active and experienced a nega-
tive event, they approached the obstacle with a
more positive attitude."
A second purpose of this study was to deter-
mine if particular personality traits had an effect
on the relationship between exercise and mood,
Giacobbi said.
Results showed individuals with higher levels,
of neuroticism, characterized by anxiousness,
depression, self-consciousness, anger/hostility,
impulsiveness and vulnerability, experienced the,
most benefits from physical activity.


"Neuroticism is a normal personality trait,'
Giacobbi said. "A little bit of this trait is OK for
anyone. But someone who scores above published
norms might be referred to psychotherapy or coun-
seling. From my perspective, exercise has physical
health benefits and is a cheaper alternative than
drug treatment or counseling."
According to the U.S.'Bureau of the Census,
there are about 54 million people with disabling
conditions and about half of them state their dis-
ability affects one or more activities of daily liv-
ing. Additionally, research has shown that people
with disabilities ,are less likely to participate in
regular physical activity compared to other
groups.
"Not only is it important to probe the physical
effects of exercise on people with disabilities, but
also the emotional affects that may play a part in
increasing or decreasing likelihood to participate
in physical activity," Giacobbi said.
The study was published in the April 2006
issue of Adapted Physical Activity Quarterly.
"This study confirms what most of us in the
disability sport movement have supposed for
years," said Dug Jones, head coach of the Dallas
Wheelchair Mavericks, 2006 Division I National
Champions. "The development of an active, phys-
ical lifestyle for persons with disabilities has
implications far beyond just physical fitness. This
study adds needed credibility to that impression."


Congress provides $5.2 billion in


new hurricane relief


U. S. Senator Bill Nelson
last Friday announced that
Congress has agreed to give $5.2
,'billion in disaster relief to
..lorida and other states hit by
hurricanes last year.
The money is included in a
broader $94.5 billion spending
bill approved by House and
Senate negotiators Friday morn-
ing. The vast majority of the
money included in the supple-
mental appropriations bill will
help fund the war in Iraq.


The $5.2 billion will fund
disaster Community
Development Block Grants
(CDBG) for counties declared
federal disaster areas during last
year's hurricane season, with the
Department of Housing and
Urban Development allocating
the funds among eligible states.
CDBG funds are often used for
long-term recovery efforts,
housing and business assistance,
infrastructure reconstruction,
mitigation efforts and public ser-


vices.
"Many people in Florida's
hardest hit areas are still strug-
gling to recover from last year's
storms," Nelson said. "This
extra money will help them to
rebuild."
The bill is expected go to
the president for his signature,
after the Senate and House
approve the conference agree-
ment next week.

Rays from page 1
positions in the game.
Factor in an experienced
group of reserves, who all saw
plenty of action while several
players were on the shelf, and
suddenly the Rays appear to be a
very dangerous team.
The question that continues
to plague the Rays, and that
which has been on the minds of
those who follow the team since
spring training, is whether or not
the team's pitchers will be able
to support what seems to be, on
paper anyhow, a very lethal line-
up.
A recent sign of relief has
come in the form of rookie
Jamie Shields who has pitched
12 consecutive scoreless innings
and has won back-to-back starts.
Scott Kazmir rebounded
Monday from three rough starts
in a row, allowing just one run to
Detroit and continues to work on
an impressive campaign.
The rest of the starting
pitching staff is a mixed-bag.
Seth McClung, Casey Fossum,
who just returned from a
strained left groin injury, and
Mark Hendrickson have all


struggled to stay consistent.
Of the three, Hendrickson
has showed the most promise,
looking stellar at times, includ-
ing Wednesday evening when he
yielded just one run to Detroit in
nine full innings of work.
More frightening than the
inconsistency of the starting
pitching, however, has been the
inability of the bullpen to fend
off opponents. On numerous
occasions, the Rays have seen
late inning leads evaporate due
to deplorable performances by
the bullpen.
With news Wednesday that
closer Tyler Walker has been
placed on the 15-day disabled
list with a right elbow strain, it
doesn't appear the bullpen situa-
tion will improve anytime soon.
For the time being, the Rays
bats will need to load up the
scoreboard in hopes that whoev-
er is on the mound will be able to
keep the bats of opposing hitters
dormant.
For a team that is under con-
struction, now that the founda-
tion is back in place, it's time for
some serious building.


Lightning sign






center Eric Perrin


The Tampa Bay Lightning
announced Wednesday that the
organization has signed center
Eric Perrin to a one-year con-
tract.
Perrin, a 5-foot-9, 176-
pound native of Laval, Quebec
last played in the Lightning uni-
form in Game 4 of the 2004
Eastern Conference Finals. He
played in 12 total playoff games
in 2004 and recorded an assist,
his first in the NHL, during
Game 1 of the ECF. Perrin also
recorded nine shots on goal en
route to winning the Stanley Cup
with Tampa Bay in his first NHL
season. He appeared in four reg-
ular season games and logged a
season-high 11:49 of ice time in
the season finale on April 3.
"As we have stated many
times, losing Eric Perrin to
Europe last season as a result of
the re-entry waiVer rules in the
new CBA was a major blow to
our organizational depth,"
Feaster said. "Eric performed
very well for us during his late-
season recall and into the
Stanley Cup Playoffs in 2004.'


We are very pleased that he has
chosen to re-sign with us now
and we look forward to seeing
him competing for a spot on our
roster in camp."
Perrin, 30, played for Bern
in the Swiss league for the 2005-
06 season and played in 44 regu-
lar season games. He scored 13
goals and dished out 25 assists in
those games. He scored two
goals and registered six points in
11 games for Bern in the play-
offs. He also played in 11 post-
season games for Biel-Bienne in
the Swiss-B League and scored
five goals with seven assists.
Perrin grew up in Laval with
Lightning right wing Martin St.
Louis, and the pair rewrote the
record books at the University of
Vermont from 1993-94 through
1996-97. The top two scorers in
Vermont history, both were
Hobey Baker Award finalists and
NCAA All Americans (Perrin in
1996, St. Louis in 1995, 1996 &
1997); both were named East
Coast Athletic Conference
Player of the Year (Perrin in
1996, St. Louis in 1995); both


were ECAC All-Stars in 1995,
1996 & 1997; both were named
to the ECAC All-Rookie Team in
1994, with Perrin named Rookie
of the Year.
After his four years at
Vermont, Perrin was No. 1 in
games (142), goals (107) and
game-winning goals (18), and he
ranks second in assists (149),
points (256) and power-play
goals.
He spent the 2004-05 season
with the Hershey Bears of the
American' Hockey League and
played in all 80 games, leading
the Bears in assists with 49,
points with 73 and game-win-
ning goals with seven in earning
his second consecutive AHL All-
Star, Game selection. He also
scored 24 goals with six of them
coming on the man advantage.
Perrin made his AHL debut
in 2003-04 playing 71 games
and finishing the season tied for
second in assists with 54 and tied
for third in points with 75
despite being recalled by the
Lightning on March 26. He was
also tied for the team lead in


power-play goals with nine and
tied for third on the Bears in
game-winning goals with five.
He made his AHL All-Star Game
debut and scored a goal while
finishing with a plus-1 rating.
Prior to playing in the AHL
he spent three seasons in Finland
playing for Jokerit, Assat, HPK
and JyP. He led JyP in scoring
during the 2002-03 season with
18 goals and 46 points in 56
games and ranked 6th in SM-
Liiga for assists and 7th in
points. He also ranked fourth'in
the league in playoff scoring
with 10 points in seven games
with JyP during the 2002-03 sea-
son.
Before going to Europe
Perrin played in 185 games in
the International Hockey League
with Cleveland, Quebec and
Kansas City. During his IHL
career he scored 41 goals and
recorded 136 points.
Perrin was originally signed
by the Lightning as a free agent
on June 19, 2003.

position Florida as, a leader in
the field of biofuels. Brnrison is
hosting a conference to bring
together the various elements
critical to successful alternative
energy programs to be held
August 31 through September 1
in Orlando. The event \~ ill serve
as a forum for researchers,
industry representatives and pol-
icyvmakers to discuss the produc-
tion, distribution and use of bio-
fuels. particularly ethanol, in
Florida.
"With gas prices near record
levels and demand for cheaper
and cleaner alternatives grow-
ing,.we hope to bnng together
the necessary parties to make
production and distribution of
ethanol and biodiesel a reality in
Florida," Bronson said. 'The
time for discussing the need for
alternative energies is over, now
N'e must take steps to bring the
ideas to fruition."
S'Several companies have
already announced plans to build
ethanol plants in Florida and a


ference in January in Tallahassee
where he discussed his depart-
ment's "Farm to Fuel" program;
as well as the national "25 by
'25" program which seeks to
have the nation's agriculture
industry producing 25 percent of
the energy consumed in the
.United States by the year. 2025.
Bronson's Farm to Fuel Program
is designed t' assist Florida
farniers and ranchers in produc-
ing bio-fuel crops to reduce the
nation's dependency on foreign
oil.
"Locating ethanol produc-
tion facilities here will reduce
our dependency on petroleum,
offer a more economical alterna-
tive, and create jobs and. eco-
nomic development," Bronson
said. "In addition, this will
expand markets- for our agricul-
ture industry in the form of ener-
gy crops and productive use of
agricultural waste products."
The conference, comes on
the heels of the Florida
Legislature passing comprehen-
sive energy legislation, much of
which is directed toward pro-

Governor Bush and




Commissioner Winn




announce 2006





school grades


Governor Jeb Bush and Education Commissioner John L. Winn
Wednesday announced a record number of Florida schools earned
"A" and "B" grades in 2006. Since the implementation of the .A+
Plan for Education in 1999, themnumber of schools earning an "A" or
"B" jumped from 515 to 2,074 schools in 2006 four times the num-
ber of high-performing schools seven ears ago and 231 more than
last year (up from 1,843). Three of every four Florida schools \ ere
considered high performing in 2006. Additionally, the number of
. failing schools is on the decline, do n to.a fourth of the number of
failing schools in 1999. :' '.
"These results are further confirmation that reform, based on
high standards and expectations, clear measurement and account-
ability and rewards and consequences for results, is working,", said
Governor Bush. "Thanks to theleadership of dedicated education
professionals, Florida's students are achieving significant progress."
Florida continues to raise its standards for achievement to.
ensure students are prepared for the rigor of postsecondary educa-
tion and the workfoice. The A+ Plan for Education established the
school gradingsystem in 1999. Since then, standards have been
raised three times and students continue to show improvement.. In
2007, the bar will be raised again when scores from the Science
Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT), students in the
lowest 25 percent on the Mathematics FCAT and Grade 11 and 12
FCAT retakes will be included in the school grade calculation.
"I am particularly pleased to see that 87 percent of our middle
schools are high-performing," said Commissionei Winn. "This is
because of the significant improvements made by students in read-
ing and mathematics this year on the FCAT."
Of Florida's 2,789 graded public schools earning "A" through
"F" grades:
1,466 earned an "A" (53 percent)
:608 earned a "B" (22 percent)
S* 562 earned a "C" (20 percent)
129 earned a "D" (5 percent)
24 earned an "F" (1 percent)
Florida's elementary schools continue to make outstanding
progress. Nearly sixty percent of all elementary schools earned an
"A," and nearly eight) percent earned an "A" or "B." Florida's mid-
dle schools are also making great progress, with two-thirds of mid-
dle schools earning an "A," and 87 percent earning at "A" or "B".
This is the most progress made since Florida began accountability
and prioritized reading coaches in middle grades.
S This year, 41 percent of Florida high schools earned an "A" or
"B," and 38 percent earned a "C." Governor Jeb Bush recently
signed House Bill 7087, his A++ Plan for Education, increasing the
rigor and relevance of Florida's middle and high schools to better
prepare students for postsecondary education and the workforce.
S Adequate Yearly Progress
Last year, in.partnership with the U.S. Department of
Education, ,Florida was granted a new Adequate Yearly Progress
(AYP) designation under the No Child Left Behind Act to recognize
the outstanding achievement of "A" and "B" schools. The provision


allows those that miss one or more of the 39 AYP criteria to be des-
ignated as making Provisional AYP. In 2006, 3.193 schools \\ere
included in Flonda's A.P calculation with 906 schools making .YP
1.240 schools making Pro\ isional AYP and 1.047 not making AYP.
School Recognition Program
The Florida School Recognition Program rewards schools that
hase sustained high student performance or demonstrated substan-
tial improvement in student performance Schools that receive an
"A" or improve at least one performance grade from the previous
year are eligible to earn $100 per student. Recognition funds can be
used b) a school for.non-recurring faculty incentives, educational
equipment, new technology. or hiring temporary personnel to assist
in maintaining and improving student performance. Last year, 1,502
schools received $134 million in awards above and beyond a
school's annual budget. The School Recognition Program has had a
positive effect on schools maintaining and improving grades. In
2006. 1.033 schools maintained their "A", 36 new schools earned an
"A". 397 schools improved to an "A" and 332 schools improved to
a grade other than an "A".
For Florida's struggling schools, the Assistance Plus program
provides funding, resources and support to address areas of weak-
ness. Additionally. failing schools receive school improvement facil-
itators, reading coaches, technical assistance and assessments to
monitor student progress. Twenty-five schools earning an "F" in
2005 improved their school grade one or more letter grades this year.
Schools that have repeatedly failed will be required to take immedi-
ate action to show improvement. In May, the State Board of
Education approved measures that require schools districts to take
bold action to increase achievement, such as restructuring the grade.
configuration of the school and implementing new research-based
curriculum programs. The Assistance Plus program will help
schools achieve these goals.
tPoints-Only Designation
The .Florida Legislature recently passed legislation enabling
school districts to identify alternative schools that will be measured
on a points-only basis instead of warningg a traditional letter grade.
These schools will be awarded a "P" grade, or "points-only.!" In the
future, alternative schools will choose to earn a school improvement
rating or a school grade. Of Florida's 2,843 public schools earning
school grades, 54 schools were designated by school districts as
alternative and earned a.points-only calculation this year.
Providing a quality education for each and every student in
Florida is Governor Bush's priority and the state's most important
mission. Florida's investment in the A+ Plan for Education contin-
ues to achieve results. Today, more of Florida's students than ever
are reading on their own, taking college entrance exams, graduating
. from high school and earning college degrees..
Parents will receive a school report card that provides a com-
prehensive look at their child's school, with results under state and
federal standards, as well' as information on spending at the school
leyel. For more information, please visit www.myflorida.com or
