speaks Wednesday during a meeting of the Suncoast Tiger Bay Club.


By Carter Chase
Staff Writer
Deborah Eldridge, a family
law attorney from St. Petersburg
and founder of the non-profit
organization, Childrens' Best
Interests First, Inc., scolded
Florida's foster care system
Wednesday, during her speech in
front of about 50 members of the
Suncoast Tiger Bay Club, for the
way it handles displaced chil-
r,, dren.
Eldridge said the privatized
system, which Florida has had in
place since 1999, has failed to
appropriately address the true
needs of the children it serves.
"Children are falling
through the cracks in our sys-
tem," said Eldridge. "We ha% e
many children who have lin-
gered in the system for two,
three...five years. Who is look-
ing out for the best interest. of
the children?"
Eldridge said the system
suffers from "inadequacies" that.
Sshe feels would be less likely to


exist if the system was run by the
state government, rather than
privatized parties.
"Case managers are under-
paid...overworked, but we can't
keep using that as an excuse for
not keeping in mind the chil-
dren's best interests," she said.
Eldridge said her main point
of contention is with the mental-
ity that she says exists under the
current foster care system. which
she claims views foster parents
aI nIthini more than "glorified
bab) -smrers".
Eldridge was an attorney in
a legal trial a couple of years ago
in which her clients, two hpmo-
se\ual men, were attempting to
adopt two sisters.
The sisters had been having
a hard time for years finding an
Adoptive home, having been in
and out of numerous foster care
residences.
"It just boggled my mind by
how the state was turning a
blind-e'e to what was going on
with these children," said
Eldridge


placed in her clients' home
under a permanent placement
order because the state simply
had no reason not to allow it
since it was clearly evident that
the children's best interests
would be met.
According to Eldridge,
however, matching children
who have been removed from
their homes with the right care-
givers is often not the priority of
.case managers under the current
system.
She believes case managers
are pressured under the present
system to find ways to return
children to their previous fami-
lies once they become displaced
rather than to take time to see to
it that adequate placement is
actually fourd.
"The ideal of the system is
to reunify the child with their
parents," said Eldridge. "It's the
best interests of the child we
need to be concerned with rather
thantrying, to keep the family
intact."
Eldridge asserted it's time
for a change.
"We are not looking for
more government funding, that's
not our goal, said Eldridge. "My
institution...our goal is to
change the legal system so that
we change the system to look
out for the children's best inter-
ests. We need to do everything
we can to start looking out for
the welfare of the children."

Vol. 24. No. 26
I Section. 8 pages


Clearwater recently became
the first city in the nation to use
a dual predictive Advanced
Traffic Management System
(ATMS) to move traffic on its
roads. The $10.6 million sys-
tems should improve traffic flow
on U.S. 19 and Gulf-to-Bay
Boulevard and are a major part
of Clearwater's growing
Intelligent Transportation
System (ITS).
The RHODES (Real-time,
Hierarchical, Optimized,
Distributed, Effective System)
system manages traffic on Gulf-
to-Bay Boulevard and the OPAC
(Optimization Polices for
Adaptive Control) system man-
ages traffic on U.S. 19. The
combined ITS system is neces-


sary because of the differences
between the two roads.
RHODES excels at managing
roads with irregular traffic signal
spacing, like Gulf-to-Bay
Boulevard. In contrast, U.S. 19
has uniform spacing, which the
OPAC system handles well.
Both systems use a combination
of cameras, sensors, computers
and advanced software to predict
traffic flows and adjust signal
"green time". Each intersection
constantly communicates with
other intersections along the
road, updating how heavy traffic
is and how long it will take to get
to the next intersection.
Motorists will also benefit from
Dynamic Message Boards that
provide traffic updates, accident


updates, road closure alerts,
Amber alerts and other impor-
tant announcements.
ITS/ATMS will also allow
Clearwater to quickly identify
problem areas caused by acci-
dents or inoperable vehicles.
State law prohibits any law
enforcement agency from using
this technology for traffic
enforcement.
Clearwater's ITS/ATMS
systems are the first systems
activated in a much larger
Pinellas County ITS/ATMS
effort. Funds for ITS/ATMS
where provided through a part-
nership' between Clearwater,
Pinellas County and the
Metropolitan Planning
Organization.


Newt Gingrich joins Moffitt

The total number of farms

in Florida may be down,

but the number of farms

owned or managed by

women is rising


Historically women have
often been unseen partners on
the farm-hardworking
farmwives and daughters-
essential but largely unacknowl-
edged. Today, things have
changed; women are stepping
out of the shadows and putting a
new face on American farming.
Women' in agriculture are
making their presence known in
every state, and Florida is no
exception. They're changing the
way food is grown and sold and
even how it tastes. In
Homestead, Teena Borek is
growing heirloom tomatoes in
all shapes and colors to supply
Miami's five-star restaurants and
gourmet markets. In Monticello,
Dr. Cynthia Connolly is produc-
ing organic muscadine wine at
Florida's only certified organic
farm winery. Meanwhile, Betty
O'Toole of Madison has found
her niche with organic herbs,
luring customers to her small
farm with workshops, daylong
internships, and tours. of the
farm's sumptuous display gar-
dens.
Around the country, farms
run by women are on the
increase. According to the U.S.
,Department of Agriculture, the
number of farms with women as
primary operators grew 58 per-
cent from 1975 to 1997, and it is
predicted that as much as 75 per-
cent of U.S. farmland will be
owned by women by 2014.
Women come by the land-
and the job of farming-in a
variety of ways. Some inherit,
farmland when their husbands
die. Others assume management
of the farm when their spouse is
forced to find off-farm employ-
ment. Women who grew up on
farms often return after their par-
ents die or'retire.
Barbara Carlton took over
the management of her family's
17,000-acre cattle ranch in
Sarasota County when her hus-
band, Mabry, died in a plane
crash in 1989.
"At that time, I had been on
'the ranch for 28 years, and it
really surprised me that people
wondered if I would stay," she
says. "Why would they think I
wouldn't have the ability or that
I wouldn't want to. keep doing
the same thing that I had done
for all those years?"
Mabry Carlton served on
the Sarasota County
Commission for nine years
before his death, and the job
often took him away from the
ranch. While he was away,
Barbara Carlton was the one
running things.
"I think of those nine years
as my training period," she says.
Yet despite her many years
of experience, it was difficult to
convince some people to take
her seriously. It was tough to get
them to see her as the person in
charge of the sprawling ranch,
the largest private land holding
in Sarasota County.
"People I dealt with had
their doubts about me as a ranch-
er," Carlton says. "Several peo-
ple would say, 'Well, could you
have your foreman call me?' Or,
'Do you have a son?' No, I don't


have a son."
Carlton seems more amused
than bothered by the misconcep-
tions. Like many female farm-
ers; she's inclined to laugh off
gender stereotypes rather than
let them get in her way.
"Of course there are still
biases out there," says Dr.
Marion Aller, Director of the
Division of Food Safety for the,
Florida Department of
Agriculture and Consumer
Services. "Women still raise
eyebrows whether they're in the
barn or the boardroom.
Sometimes women may be held
to a higher standard. There are
bastions of the old guard. But I
think women are well aware of
these attitudes and they know
how to handle them. They can
get past them and move on."
"Women don't want special
treatment," says Terry Rhodes,
Chief of Staff for Florida
Agriculture Commissioner
Charles H. Bronson. "They
want to be seen as farmers, not
as 'women fanners.''They don't
want gender issues to interfere
, with the important work at hand:
growing food, growing their
businesses, keeping the farm.
It's about farming, not about
being a woman."
Indeed, many of the women
interviewed for this article
stressed the supportimeness. of
their male colleagues.
"When my husband died in
1980, I was a mother; I wasn't a
farmer," said Teena Borek, who
farms 300 acres in Homestead.
"I had to learn how to farm, and
I couldn't have done it without
the help of my neighbors, the.
farmers all around me. I never
ever had a farmer be negative to
me because I was a woman.
Quite the opposite; they always
helped me out. The farming
community is so close-knit and
supportive, so giving, and this is
a wonderful industry to work in
because of that."
Borek says the problems she
faces are the same ones all fami-
ly farmers in Florida run up
against: low profits, a shortage
of labor, too much government
regulation, unfair trade, soaring
land values, and mounting pres-
sure from developers.
"Farming isn't hard for me
because I'm a woman," Borek
insists. "It's hard for every small
or medium-sized farmer. With
all the new rules and regulations,
family farms simply can't keep
up. We can't make it. There are
obstacles on top of obstacles. I
wouldn't be in this business any-
more if I didn't have two sons
who would like to remain in it. I
don't think farmers are appreci-
ated."
Dr. Cynthia Connolly, who
owns and operates Ladybird
Organics, a 50-acre organic farm
in Monticello, says part of the
problem is the absence of a
national support program for
small.and medium-sized farms.
During the 17 years she has been
running Ladybird Organics, she
has often been forced to supple-
ment her income with off-farm
jobs simply to make ends meet.

Pinellas County
Commissioners approve
purchase of Palm Harbor
Resort
Pinellas County Commissioners
approved the contract for the sale and pur-
chase of Palm Harbor Resort as part of its
plan to provide the public with additional
boat ramp spaces.
The property at 2119 U.S. Alternate 19
N. in Palm Harbor has 16 boat slips, a boat
ramp and six cottages on approximately five
acres. The purchase cost is $3.81 million,
with $2 million to come from the North
County Boat Ramp Capital Improvement
fund and revenues from boat ramp parking
fees. The remainder will come from reallo-
cated Capital Improvements funds. The
property is zoned Commercial Recreation
and will be managed by the Pinellas County
Culture, Education and Leisure Department
once the purchase is complete. The county
has an initial 45-day due diligence period to
do inspections on the property. During this
period, the county can opt out based on the
findings of those inspections at no cost to
taxpayers.
At their regular June 20 meeting,
Pinellas County Commissioners approved
the purchase of the Belle Harbour Marina in
Tarpon Springs for $3.6 million. Belle
Harbour has 18 wet slips and 110 dry storage
units. The 45-day due diligence on this prop-
erty is under way.

ing behind the owner, who heard a noise and
turned to see the small dog in the jaws of the
alligator as it was heading to the middle of
the lake.
It hasn't been determined whether the
dogs were leashed, as required in county
parks.
Generally, alligators may be considered
it tlfisansee'wvhen they are at last foui feet in
length and '4Vse a threat to pe'peife r'their'
pets or property. Signs at all county parks

Fireworks safety on 4th of
July will prevent injuries
Clearwater Fire & Rescue Fire Marshal
Steve Strong urges Clearwater residents to
stay safe and prevent injuries this
Independence Day when celebrating around
fireworks. Fireworks are exciting to watch
but can be dangerous to touch or play with.
Thousands of injuries each year could be
avoided by heeding a few simple tips:
*Understand that fireworks are incendi-
ary devices, not toys
*Fireworks should be handled only by
trained professionals
*Even sparklers can reach 1,0000
Fahrenheit, and parents should be present
when children use them
*Attend public fireworks displays
instead of back yard displays
*Stay at least 500 feet away from fire-
works displays


The sale and use of fireworks are regu-
lated by the state and Pinellas County, and
only sparkler-type fireworks are legal for
general consumer purchase. For further
information, contact Clearwater Fire &
Rescue Division of Fire Prevention Services
at 727-562-4327.

Fireworks are nothing for pets
to celebrate on the Fourth of
July
Humans love fireworks-the colorful dis-
plays are a Fourth of July tradition to look
forward to-but it's not the same for pets. The
noise and lights frighten pets and cause
unpredictable behavior. According to
Pinellas County Animal Services, runaway
pets increase after the Fourth's fireworks
extravaganzas. Here are some tips to make
Independence Day festive for you and your
pets:
'Pels 'can be unpredictable ini strange
surroundings during fireworks displays. It's
not a good idea to take a pet to fire,\orks
events.
*Keep pets indoors in familiar sur-
roundings when fireworks are going off.
*Make sure your pet has been fed and
has had a walk early in the day before night-
fall brings fireworks to your neighborhood.
*Comfort skittish or sensitive pets when
it's particularly loud outside.
*Monitor your pets' behavior when
lights and booms are going off. Make sure
there aren't any open doors or windows for
their escape if they're terrified.
*Owners should make sure that their
pets have tags or microchips to make finding
the pet easier if it does run away.
For a list of adoptable dogs and cats, go

efault.htm. Pinellas County Animal Services
is located at 12450 Ulmerton Rd., Largo. For
information, call (727) 582-2600. The

AAA expects 40.7 million


Americans will travel for


Fourth of July; up 1% over


2005

While travel will be up slightly this Fourth of July holiday with
projections up nationwide by 1.2% compared to 2005, AAA is fore-
casting a 3.2 percent increase in auto travel for the southeastern
region of the U.S.
Seemingly putting aside concern over fuel. prices and rising
vacation costs, AAA is projecting 40.7 million Americans nation-
wide will travel at least 50 miles from home. As more consumers
seek to take advantage of a potential four-day weekend, many com-
,panies may find an unusual number of workers calling in sick on
Monday, July 3rd.
"We're seeing a lot of people who've waited to the last minute,
booking Caribbean cruises," said Llajjaira Diaz, a travel agent at
AAA's Westshore office in Tampa. Carnival's Inspiration (a cruise
ship that departs from Tampa) is sold out," she added.
In Florida, more than 2 million are projected to drive and near-
ly 200,000 say they will travelby plane. For Georgia, just over 1
million will hit the road while close to 100,000 will fly. Similarly, in
STennessee, 715,000 are projected to drive and 65,000 plan to fly. The
Numbers in Florida, Georgia, Tennessee and the rest of the south-
Seastern region reflect a 3.2 % increase in auto travel and, converse-
ly, a 1.3% decrease in air travel compared to 2005.
"The Independence Day holiday is an icon of the American

summer," said Kevin Bakewell, senior vice president, AAA Auto
Club South. "It's a great time for beaches and barbecues; family,
friends, and fireworks! And for those who can stretch it into a four
n or five- day vacation, it's just that much more relaxing!"
S While fuel prices remain high, they seem to have hit a plateau
and remain well below the all-time highest prices seen in September
f 2005. Nonetheless, fuel prices for FL, GA and TN are averaging
- about 60 cents more per gallon this holiday than last year.
n The greatest number of Fourth of July auto travelers will origi-
nate in the Southeast with 8.8 million, followed by the West with 8.5
Million; Midwest, 6.6 million; Northeast, 5.7 million;, and Great
k Lakes, 4.7 million.
Ocean and beach vacations top the list of preferred destinations

t this holiday with 22 percent of travelers saying they will be taking a
Swater-based vacation. Small towns and rural areas was the next pop-
Sular destination, with 21 percent and cities were third at 19 percent.
) Additionally, 10 percent of travelers will head to lake areas, and 5
percent to the mountains. More than one quarter of the total Fourth
of July travelers expect to stay at a hotel or motel. Forty percent of
f travelers expect to stay with friends or relatives.

Blackbeard and Ben
Franklin deserve equal billing
for founding democracy in the
United States and New World, a
new University of Florida study
finds.
Pirates practiced the same
egalitarian principles as the
Founding Fathers and displayed
pioneering spirit in exploring
new territory and meeting the
native peoples, said Jason
Acosta, who did the. research for
his thesis in history at the
University of Florida.
"Hollywood really has
given pirates a bum rap with its
image of bloodthirsty, one-eyed,
peg-legged men who bury trea-
sure and force people to walk the
plank," he said. "We owe them a
little more respect."
Acosta, a descendant of a
pirate who fought for the United
States in the Battle of New
Orleans, studied travel narra-
tives, court hearings, sermons
.delivered at pirate hangings and
firsthand accounts of passengers
held captive by pirates.
Comparing pirate charters with
the Declaration of Independence

the next five years, according to
University of Florida education
researchers.
Dale F. Campbell, director

Consumer confidence
among Floridians in June rose
four points to 90, reflecting opti-
mism about the long-term future
of the U.S. economy, but
University of Florida economists
say they are unsure exactly why.
"The rise in confidence
comes as 'a surprise given what
is happening in the economy that
should be affecting consumers,"
said Chris McCarty, director of
the survey research 'center at
UF's Bureau of Economic and
Business Research. "Gas prices
declined a bit in June, but so did
the stock market. The Federal
Reserve has induced rises, in
interest rates on credit cards and
home loans. It's unclear why
consumers are so optimistic
about the future."
The rise in confidence was
primarily in the questions
reflecting expectations about the
months and years to come.
Perceptions of U.S. eco-
nomic conditions over the next
five years rose 10 points to 85,
while perceptions of U.S. eco-
nomic conditions over the next
year rose five points to 78.
Expectations about personal
finances a year from now rose
four'points to 96. Perceptions of
personal finances now compared
with a year ago was flat, at 88, as
were perceptions of whether it is
a good time to buy big-ticket
items, which remained at 100.
Unlike other states, Florida
has fared better in the economic
expansion since the 2001 reces-
sion, particularly in the area of
job creation and employment,
McCarty said.
Consumer confidence
nationally as, measured by the
University of Michigan in its
mid-month release also shows a
rise in confidence, but it follows
a large drop from April to May,


McCarty said. One reason for
the rise nationally is that con-
sumers may have over-reacted to
negative economic news in the
previous month and are now
more optimistic, he said.
"Moving forward, we still
expect high energy prices and
the decline in the real estate mar-
ket to have a negative effect on
consumers in the coming
months," he said.
In particular, the real estate
market will become more of a
factor because those whotook
out low-interest adjustable rate
mortgages three years ago will
suddenly be affected when the
loan matures and the mortgage
payment is pegged to current
interest rates, which have since
gone up, McCarty said.
"It is unclear how many
Florida households will be
impacted by this phenomenon,
but we should keep in mind that
Florida has one of the highest
rates of using these types of
loans over the past several years;
given the high appreciation of
housing prices," he said.
The research center con-
ducts the Florida Consumer
Attitude survey monthly.
Respondents are 18 or older and
live in households telephoned
randomly. The preliminary index
for June was conducted from
417 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.


swap pitcners ano


catchers


The Tampa Bay Devil Rays
have acquired 22-year-old
switch-hitting catcher Dioner
Navarro, right handed pitcher
Jae Seo and a player to be named
later from the Los Angeles
Dodgers in exchange for catcher
Toby Hall, left handed pitcher
Mark Hendrickson and cash, it'
was announced Tuesday.
Navarro (pronounced Dee-
ahner Nu-var-oh) opened the
season as the Dodgers primary
catcher before suffering a
bruised right wrist May 4 against
the Padres when he was hit with
foul tip. He batted .280 (21-for-
75) with two doubles, two home
runs and eight RBI in 25 games
for the Dodgers before landing
on the disabled list May 5. He
returned from the DL on June 16
and was optioned to AAA Las
Vegas where he has played 11
games for the 51's and has batted
.175 (7-40) with two doubles
and two RBI.
Navarro, originally signed
as a non-drafted free agent with
the Yankees in 2000 at the age of
16, has appeared in 70 major
league games in his career
including five with the Yankees
in 2004 when he made his big-
league debut becoming the third-
youngest player in the majors
that year (behind TB's BJ Upton
and KC's Angel Berroa). He
oins a .994 career fielding per-
centage committing just three
errors behind the plate.
Seo, 29, was 2-4 with a 5.78
ERA, 25 walks and 49 strikeouts
in 67.0 innings over 19 games,
10 starts, for the Dodgers this


season, his first in Los Angeles.
Signed by the Mets as a free
agent in 1997, Seo made his
major league debut with New
York in 2002 without issuing a
walk to his first 103 batters
faced, the longest such streak
since World War II. In 90 career
appearances, 76 starts, over parts
or all of the last five seasons, he
his 24-28 with a 4.13 ERA and a
2-to-1 strikeout to walk ratio
(273-SO, 137-BB).
Seo (whose full name is
pronounced Jay So) is a native
of Kwanju, South Korea. He is
one of 12 Koreans to have
played Major League Baseball.
Hall, 30, was batting .231
(51-for-221) with 13 doubles
and 8 home runs in 64 games
with the Rays this season. He
owns a .262 batting average in
578 career games all coming
with Tampa Bay over the last
seven years. He has been the
opening day catcher for the Rays
each of the last five seasons,
most in club history. He ranks
among the Rays all-time leaders
in games (578-2nd most), dou-
bles (112-2nd most), RBI (251-
3rd most), home runs (44-4th
most) and hits (538-4th most).
Hendrickson, 32, was 4-8
with a 3.81 ERA in 13 starts for
the Rays this season. The former
NBA player's 74 starts and 25
wins with Tampa Bay are the
most by a left-hander in club his-
tory. He has led the Rays in wins
each of the last two seasons
while posting 4 of the team's last
5 complete games.


Newly acquired pitcher Jae Seo (top) formerly of the New York
Mets and Los Angeles Dodgers and catcher Dioner Navarro, a former
New York Yankee and Dodger, both played their first games with the
Rays Wednesday night in Miami against the Florida Marlins.

Lightning build on future at draft


The 2006 NHL Entry Draft
held on Saturday in Vancouver,
British Columbia was one
unlike any other in recent mem-
ory for the Tampa Bay
Lightning. With speculation
about possible trades swirling
around the Draft Floor in
Vancouver, talk radio shows
from coast to coast and internet
message boards worldwide,
Tampa Bay did not make a
trade on draft day electing
instead to stand pat with the
four picks it came with to
Vancouver. The Lightning also
drafteC a goaltender in the first
round for the first time in fran-
chise history.
That historic player turned
out to be Finnish net minder
Riku Helenius, who entered the
weekend as the top goaltender
in thei draft according to the
International Scouting Service
and the top European goal-
tendersin the draft according to
The Hockey News.
"We don't think you can
ever have enough good, young
goaltenders, and we had Riku
rated among the top 10 players
overall and as the top goal-
tender on our list,"' Executive
Vice President and General
Manager Jay Feaster said on
draft day. "When he was still
available, there was no question
we would take him. He's very
polished, and we like his com-
petitiveness and work ethic. He
is also very mentally tough."'
Helenius' 6-foot-3, 202-
pound frame is an imposing
force in the net, allowing him to
make his Finnish Elite League
debut as an 18-year-old. He had
already achieved acclaim on the


international scene with a
strong performance at the 2005
World U-18 Tournament. He
was given the Directorate
Award as the tournament's best
goaltender after posting a 4-1-1
record and 1.83 goals-against
average with a .942 save per-
centage.
With its second pick, in the
third round, the Lightning
selected a defenseman tailor-
made for the new NHL, Kevin
Quick from The Salisbury
(prep) School in Salisbury,
Connecticut. His last name is
quite fitting as he is regarded as
a quick-skating offensive
defenseman in the mold of cur-
rent Lightning defenseman Dan
Boyle.
"He's one of the most fluid
skaters in this year's draft,"
Lightning Chief Scout Jake
Goertzen said. "He is a very
agile, puck-moving defense-
man.and is very well-suited for
the new NHL."
He played in 28 games
with Salisbury and scored three
goals with 23 points. He was
ranked as the 93rd North
American skater by NHL
Central Scouting and he has
one more year of prep school
remaining with Salisbury.
Choosing in the sixth
round, Tampa Bay went in
another direction on the blue
line, selecting stay-at-home
defenseman Dane Crowley
from the Swift Current Broncos
of the Western Hockey League.
He is bigger than Quick at 6-2,
207-pounds, and split this past
season between Swift Current
and the Saskatoon Blades. He
scored one goal and had 12


points in 71 games between the
two teams in 2005-06 and has
three goals and 26 assists in
151 career WHL games.
"He is a decent sized guy
with good strength and he
moves well," said Glen
Zacharias, who scouts the WHL
for the Lightning. He's a
defensive minded player with
good character and a good team
guy."
With their final pick of the
draft (in the seventh round) the
Lightning selected a familiar
name, Denis Kazionov, from
Tver in the Russian Elite
League. The name may sound
familiar to Tampa Bay fans
because the Lightning selected
his brother, Dmitri, in the 2002
NHL Entry Draft. Denis was
the only forward selected by
Tampa Bay in the draft after
recording one assist in 26
games during his first year in
the Russian Elite League.
"He is the bigger, stronger
and younger brother of Dmitri,"
Goertzen said. "He's a real
good skater along the lines of
(Evgeni) Artyukhin. He has
eye-popping speed."
At 6-3, 187-pounds
Kazionov has good size and is
regarded as a power forward
who is best in the offensive
zone. He plays physical and
aggressive while using his
strength well in front of the net.
"This weekend we
addressed a number of areas that
are going to serve us well in the
future," Feaster said. "We added
very good speed; we added a
top-notch goaltender, and once
again we built with character."

space, recently had the chance to
improve the lives of villagers in
Iraq using N.ASA technology..
The .engineering team at
NASA's Marshall Space Flight
Center in Huntsville, Ala.,
helped install and test a water
purification system in'the north-
ern village of Kendala.
Two years ago, the pump for
the village's deep-water well
failed, leaving residents without
access to clean water. The popu-
lation quickly dwindled from
more than 1,000 residents to just
150. Those who stayed were
forced to haul water from nearby
creeks muddied by dirty live-
stock. They also dug crude, shal-
low wells, straining the water
through fabric to remove dirt and
debris.
The village's plight drew the
attention of Concern For Kids, a
non-profit organization in
Lawrenceville, Ga., that has pro-
vided aid in Iraq since 1992.
Recognizing the need for cut-
ting-edge technology to save
lives and revive the ailing com-
munity, Todd Harrison, president
of Concern For Kids' board of
directors, turned to his sister
Robyn Carrasquillo. She is the
engineering manager for the
Environmental Control and Life
Support System, or ECLSS, pro-
ject at Marshall.
The ECLSS system is
designed to recycle air and water
on the International Space
Station, dramatically reducing
the need for frequent, costly
resupply missions from Earth.
The system's water processor,
developed by Hamilton
Sundstrand Space Systems of
Windsor Locks, Conn., is under-
going final preparation at


Marshall before it is flown to
space and installed on the sta-
tion.
Familiar with his sister's
work, Harrison knew NASA
engineer s atMarshahallhad devel-
oped many technologies for
water purification in the 1970s
and 1980s for the Space Shuttle
Program and the International
Space Station. So he posed a'
challenge to Carrasquillo and her
team: Help via e-mail to install
and test a new, ground-based
water purification system to
improve the quality of life for
Iraqis struggling to rebuild their
village and country.
The Concern For Kids fil-
tration and purification system
was designed and manufactured
by Water Security Corporation, a
commercial company in Reno,
Nev. The company uses the same
Space Certified Technology
developed for NASA and used
on the space shuttle. The system
uses iodine to purify water from
streams, rivers, wells and
swamps to be used as drinking
water for the local population.
Early this year, volunteers
installed a 2,000-liter water tank
in the village and, with the help
of U.S. Army Civil Affairs per-
sonnel, began trucking in fresh
water. But the water needed to be
cleaned and required some mod-
ification to maintain healthy
iodine levels.
There were two problems
with the water purification unit
in Kendala. The new water pump
was improperly configured and
the iodine bed had dried out dur-
ing transport.
That's when Carrasquillo's
team came into play. Despite a
nine-hour time-zone difference,
Carrasquillo and the other
,ECLSS engineers e-mailed
advice and instructions, helping


to fix the pump configuration
problem and guiding the Iraq
field team in rehydrating the
resin bed.
"A member of the NASA
team was even able to identify
iodine levels from a digital pic-
ture of the cleaned water,"
Harrison recalls. "NASA was
right there at the ready for us
when we needed them -- even
half a world away."
In short order, the field team
was able to deliver safe, clean
drinking water to the Kendala
village for the first time in two
years. Now, Concern For Kids
hopes to provide additional
purification units for other vil-
lages.
At Marshall, the ECLSS
system's water processor draws
ever nearer to flight, and
Carrasquillo is confident the
technology will serve the space
station well. The technology is a
major leap forward in serving
the needs of future space explor-
ers on the space station, on the
moon or during deep-space mis-
sions to the outer reaches of the
solar system.
"Each astronaut in space
requires about three gallons, of
water every day," Carrasquillo
said. "That's far less than the 35
gallons or so used each day by
the average American, but still
an amount that quickly adds up,
crowding our shuttles and rock-
ets and creating prohibitive
costs. We're excited to deliver a
system that will change all that."
She's thrilled to have made a
difference here on Earth, too.
"To see our system solve a
down-to-Earth problem, espe-
cially in a place where there's
such a serious need -- there's no
greater reward than that."


Morton Plant Hospital receives award


Morton Plant Hospital has
received a top national recogni-
tion, for its work in open heart
surgery. Morton Plant was pre-
sented with the Premier Award
for Quality in the area of
Coronary Artery Bypass Graft.
The award was presented Wed.,
June 21, 2006 at the 2006
.,Premier Annual Breakthroughs
Conference- and Exhibition in
Orlando.
t "This. nationally recognized
award honors excellence in qual-
ity of care and operational effi-
ciency," said Philip K.


Beauchamp, president and chief
executive Bfficer of. Morton
Plant Mease Health Care. "It is a.
tribute to the constant work of
our physicians, nurses and team
members to maintain top stan-
dards of care."
:Awarded in six clinical
areas, the Premier Award for
Quality is based on quality and
cost data regularly submitted to
Premier for reporting and bench-
marking purposes. The award is
distinguished by its considera-
tion of performance-based crite-
ria, including clinical quality


outcomes, clinical process indi-
cators and resource utilization
outcomes.
"Our commitment to quality
begins with a multi-disciplinary
team focused on the care of our
cardiac surgery patients," said
Dr. Thomas Deal, cardiac
surgery, Morton Plant Mease.
"We measure everything and
look at every aspect of patient
care from pre- and post-surgery
education, nutrition, pharmacy,
rehabilitation and nursing care."

"There is no government
policy that buoys us," she says.
"Small farmers have no retire-
ment or health care benefits, and
food prices are so low that it's
very difficult for us to make a
living. As a result, small farmers
are a very endangered group."
Betty O'Toole, owner of
O'Toole's Herb Farm, an organ-
ic herb farm in Madison, agrees
that farming is a tough business.
"We couldn't make it if my
husband didn't have a good
retirement," O'Toole says.
"Farming is hard. You can work
yourself to death, and any
money you make goes back into
the farm."'
O'Toole worked for years as
an interior designer before com-
ing back to the 1,000-acre farm
her family has owned since the
1840s. Her father and grandfa-
ther grew shade tobacco on the
land, but she and her husband,
Jim, chose to focus on herbs,
which they raise on five acres.
They started out selling fresh-cut
herbs to area restaurants, but
today they are in the live plant
business. They have two green-
houses full of organically grown
potted herbs and butterfly-
friendly perennials; they sell
wholesale to area nurseries dur-
ing the first half of the week and
are open to retail customers on
Thursday, Fridays and
Saturday.
"I didn't know I was a
farmer at heart until I was in my
thirties," O'Toole says. "When I
was young, girls didn't go into
agriculture. It was unheard of. I
became an interior designer
because it was an acceptable
occupation for a woman, but I
think what I really wanted to be
was a landscape designer."
O'Toole's flair for design is
apparent throughout her farm:
There are elaborate demonstra-
tion gardens aflutter with butter-
flies and birds; the lush, fragrant
flow of flowers and greenery is
punctuated here and there by
;arches and benches and bird-
houses. She and Jim moved two
tin-roofed Cracker houses to the
property to serve as a gift shop
and an art gallery; the ,shady
porches are laden with interest-
ing baskets, terra cotta pots, and
folk art.
Jim O'Toole is quick to give
'his wife credit for the farm's
unique and inviting atmosphere.
"Betty has such an eye for these
things," he says. "What we're
really doing now is agri-tourism,
because we've found that people
just like to be here. And why
not? The farm is quaint. It's
cute. It smells good and feels
good, and it makes youth feel
good. We have garden clubs
come in and just spend the day.
They work in the demonstration
gardens. Sometimes they have
lunch. They buy some herbs.
Being at the farm makes people
happy."
Betty adds, "We've come up
with some pretty creative ways
to bring people here. We have
weddings and receptions here-
anything we can think of."
Creativity is a quality that
women farmers seem to possess
in abundance. It's the special
something they bring to this
once tradition-bound, male-
dominated industry.
"This is an exciting time in
agriculture," says Melissa
Joiner, president of Florida Agri-
Women, a women-only non-
profit that promotes agriculture
in the Sunshine State. "In the
past, women have taken the
'supportive' role in the industry.
But as more women become
heads of businesses-become
leaders-there is a constant
stream of new ideas. We bring a
fresh perspective."
Women aren't afraid to
think outside the box, Joiner
says, or to challenge convention-


al growing methods and market-
ing techniques. "Maybe it's
because we're coming from the
outside," she says.
It's not surprising then that
women are a driving force in
alternative and sustainable agri-
culture. Studies suggest that
women are more likely than men
to farm organically and'on small
acreages; they are also more
likely to farm part time and with-
out the help of large, expensive
equipment.
"I'm a child of the sixties,"
Betty O'Toole says. "I always
knew that if I farmed, I would
farm organically. To me, it just
makes sense, to nourish the soil,
to live in balance with nature.
It's just a wonderful philosophy
of life."
Farming without chemicals
is good for the planet and good
for business. Cynthia Connolly
says customers seek her out
because she grows organically.
"It's a great selling point," she
says. "They don't come to me
because I grow wheatgrass-
they come to me because I grow
organic wheatgrass."
In addition to wheatgrass,
Connolly grows USDA-certified
organic muscadine, grapes,
which she sells fresh and also
processes into organic wines.
Visitors are welcomed to the
farm for wine tasting and sales
and to pick their own grapes in
season. Connolly also sells her
wines over the internet and at
special events. In.addition, she
produces organic eggs and broil-
ers-and she sells worm castings
for home gardeners to use as fer-
tilizer.'
"The farm is very diversi-
fied," Connolly says, "because
there is sustainability in multiple
income strains, and also because
an organic farm needs diversity.
The different parts of the farm
support each other. The worms'
support the soil, which h supports
plant life, which in turn supports
ani ml life and ultimately human
life. Plant waste and chicken
manure get composted and go
back into the soil."
By constantly diversifying
her income stream, Connolly has
been able to keep her farm
going. It's a story often told by
farmers-and by small farmers
, in general. Flexibility and cre-
ativity are mandatory if you
want to stay afloat.
Teena Borek's farm was
once just one of many in
Homestead, but now it is sur-
rounded on all sides by upscale
housing. Borek is one of the last
of her kind in the Homestead
area-a family farmer. She's
been able to keep the farm viable
by adjusting both its size and the
kinds of crops she grows.
"We were growing toma-
toes, and NAFTA crippled our
farm," Borek says. "We couldn't
compete with the cheap imports,,
so we had to find a niche, a spe-
cialty crop we could produce and
sell without so much competi-
tion. That's why I started grow-
ing heirloom tomatoes."
Borek takes special pride in
her heirlooms, which she grows
on five acres. She calls them her
"babies."
"Heirloom tomatoes are
your old-style tomatoes," Borek
explains. "Your Brandywines
and your Cherokee Purples.
They were brought to this coun-
try by the various ethnic groups
who immigrated here, so every
variety is different and special.
Heirloom tomatoes are very per-
ishable, but they are really tasty.
They come in all different colors
and shapes and flavors, and their
presentation is absolutely awe-
some. They're beautiful even
just sliced and put on a plate.
You look at them and you want
to eat them."
But growing a delicious
high-quality product isn't
enough. ,To succeed in small-


scale farming these days you
have to be a good marketer.
Many small farmers are involved
in some form of direct market-
ing; they sell their produce at'
farmers' markets, for example,
or they offer produce shares. In
such cases, the farmer's success
ultimately hinges on her ability
to build personal, trusting rela-
tionships with her customers.
"With the growing concern
over food safety, more and more
Floridians are looking for a way
to reconnect with their food
source," says Florida Agriculture
Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson. "People want to know
where theirifood comes from and
how it was grown, and small
farmers can provide this kind of
information. They can establish
a personal bond of trust with
their customers, and that is
something that is much in'
demand these days,"
But establishing this bond--
building these personal relation-
ships-takes time and effort. It,
takes work. The O'Tooles spend
countless hours preparing for the;
workshops, festivals, and other.
educational events they hold at
their farm, and the fees they
charge barely cover their
expenses.
While Betty O'Toole stress-,
es the satisfaction she takes in-
community outreach, she admits
that keeping the farm afloat-
keeping it in the public eye-is
difficult and time-consuming. "I
don't think a wimp could do it,"
she says.
So, given the difficulties;
whywould an\ one choose to be
involved iMthis profession?
Sandi Dutton, who produces
cut flowers on three acres near
Ha\ ana. just outside.Tallahassee,
says she relishes the indepen-
dence her work affords her. She
gro\ s zinnias, gladiolas, and
sunflowers, along with some
herbs, sugarcane, and a small
plot of vegetables. She sells her
flowers at local farmers' markets.
and wholesale to a few florist;
the vegetables are for her owi
use. "IPm my own boss," she
says. "I walk out my door and
I'm at work."
Another o f farming's
appeals is the "quality of life"
benefits it offers. It is embraced
as an opportunity to li'e quietly
and peacefully in nature and to
engage in work that is trul'
meaningful.
"I always say I'm growing
smiles and food for the soul,"
Dutton says. "When I'm at the
farmers' markets, I really enjoy
visiting with the customers.
Even if they don't buy anything,
they walk away with a smile on
their face. It's very rewarding.
Every day I'm surrounded by
color. I'm surrounded by flow-
ers."
It's the intangible benefits
that draw many women to the
farm-and keep then there.
"When I began thinking
about starting up this business, I
was looking for a way to rein-
vigorate my family's old farm,
and I also wanted to do some-
thing that would give my hus-
band and me a good life," Betty
O'Toole says. "And what we've
done fulfills both goals. We
have fun here. We love what we
do."
And what advice would she
offer to young women interested
in a career in farming?
"Do your research,"
O'Toole says. 'Talk to people
who are doing what you want to
do. People in the agriculture
industry are so giving. Take
,advantage of that. Learn from
others. And be prepared to work
really hard."
