Celebrating restoration and


preservation in south St. Pete

old Mayor Bradshaw Mansion, in the Ingleside neighborhood on the
south side of St. Petersburg. The two investors have spearheaded
change in the community since moving there four years ago.


By Carter Chase
Staff Writer
On the south side of St.
Petersburg, specifically in the
area from Booker Creek to 22nd
Avenue South between 4th
Street and Dr. Martin Luther
King, Jr. Boulevard,' a renais-
sance is taking place.
Along with many portions.
of city that have transformed
over the past decade, some of the
most impressive change that has
occurred has taken place in this,
pocket that comprises the'
Ingleside, Roser Park and
Bartlett Park neighborhoods.
What five years ago was ter-
ritory infested by drugs and
prostitution is now a community
on the upswing.
Paving the way for the
area's revival have been
investors Tom Barrett and Len
Johnsen who were drawn to the
area in 2002, not in hopes of just:
making money, but simply
because they wanted live in an


area that had -a distinguished
past.
"We both agreed we wanted'
a historic home," said Johnsen.
Despite being situated in
what not long ago was a dis-
parate part of the city, Barrett
and Johnsen decided to purchase
the old Mayor Bradshaw
Mansion on 11th Avenue South;
Built in 1914, the first house
in the city to have electric and
natural gas had become quite
dilapidated throughout the years,.
and according to Johnsen, was in
"the center" of the area where
problems had developed.
"Four years ago, you would-
n't have wanted to go outside,"
said Johnsen. "But we saw the
potential here."
Johnsen, who had managed
an assisted living facility in
Marion County, and Barrett,
who worked more than 20 years
as an airline mechanic, bought
the house for what they consid-
ered at the time to be a steep
price of $150,000.


"I thought it was too much,"
said Johnsen. "The place was
barely standing."
Johnsen and Barrett vowed
to spruce up the nearly 4,000
square foot home in hopes of
returning it to its glory of the
1920's when it was one of the
most visible homes in the city.
Upon buying the property,
the duo also decided that it
wanted to fix not just the home
itself, but also improve the com-
munity where it sits.
The pair, realizing it could
create a better standard of living
and also make money, began
purchasing some of the run-
down properties, renovating
them and selling them.
"We've been buying up
problems," said Johnsen.
"We've taken $20,000 homes
and turned them into $100,000
to $200,000 homes."
Barrett said they have put
about $600,000 into their own
home and two years ago, it was
appraised at $2.5 million.
Since moving into the area,
Johnsen and Barrett have bought
more than 50 properties. They
agree that the area's proximity to
Tampa Bay and a safer flood
zone location make it a lucrative
location.
"The topography is amaz-
ing," said Johnsen. "The ele-
ments of the location are com-
pletel\ unique."
They have sold eleven sin-
gle family homes as most of
their properties are earmarked
for single-family living.
Their contributions to the
community, however, have gone
well beyond making just struc-
tural improvements.
Barrett and Johnsen main-
tain the area's side streets. They
have paid for landscaping ser-
vices, fences and security for the
neighborhoods.
"We're trying to make it the
place to be," said Johnsen.
The two have also used
their house as a showcase home
for the community by hosting
neighborhood get-togethers and
fundraisers.
"It's an anchor for the
neighborhood because it has so
much history," said Johnsen.
"Seven thousand people have
been thru here in four years. I
want the community to feel they
can use it."
In order to celebrate the
renovation and preservation that
has taken place in the communi-
ty, the St. Petersburg Museum of
History is now featuring, and
will be until the end of the year,

St. Petersburg seeks


vendors for WiFi network


The City of St. Petersburg
last Thursday announced that it
has released a Request' for
Proposal (RFP) to solicit ven-
dors interested in creating a
wireless network throughout the
Page 2 city.
Page2 "The goal of the RFP is to
Page2 create a seamless, reliable,
Page 3 secure and affordable wireless
Pages 4-6 broadband network providing
Page 6 access to residents,businesses,
educational institutions and visi-
tors within the city," said Chief
Information Officer Muslim
Gadiwalla.
A year ago, Mayor Rick
Baker assembled a task force to
Study the development of a city-
wide wireless network. The RFP


is the culmination of that effort.
The city is pursuing vendors
who can build out and provide.a
wireless network extending
throughout all geographical
boundaries inside city limits.
Responses to the RFP are due to
the city's Purchasing and
Materials Management
Department by August 16, 2006.
"We have a great opportuni-
ty to use technology to advance
the progress of our city," said
Mayor Rick Baker. "The WiFi
St. Pete initiative will not only
be of great value to our residents,
businesses and visitors, but it
will also help the city in delivery
of governmental services, stimu-
late private investment, and pro-


mote job creation, business
growth and economic develop-
ment," he said.
Interested vendors are invit-
ed to review the details of the
RFP and frequently asked ques-
tions by ... visiting
www.WiFiStPete.com.
Also, as many other munici-
palities throughout the. United
States are working to create sim-
ilar networks to what St.
Petersburg is pursuing through
the RFP, the city invites mem-
bers of the city's business, non-
profit and educational communi-
ties to post letters of support for
the WiFi initiative on the site.

Morton Plant Mease


surgery corrects spinal

deformities including

scoliosis


Spinhl deformities can
affect anyone at any age.
Scoliosis, an abnormal curvature
of the spine, afflicts an estimated
six million Americans including
children, according to the
National Scoliosis Foundation.
Anthony P. Moreno, M.D.,
Morton Plant Mease orthopaedic
spine surgeon and medical direc-
tor of the Mease Neuro-Ortho
Spine Center, is among only a
few surgeons in Florida per-
forming pedicle subtraction
osteotomies to correct spinal.
deformities.
"The pedicle subtraction
osteotomy is a life changing sur-
.gical procedure." said Dr.
Moreno. "Patients, who suffer.
from spinal deformities such as
scoliosis or kyphosis, an exces-
sive curvature of the spine, have
endured years of back pain and
often significant disability stand-
ing or sitting."
The pedicle subtraction
osteotomy procedure is per-
formed at Mease Countryside
Hospital in Safety Harbor and.
involves removing a section of
the spinal column, shortening
and fusing the two ends of the
column together, and realigning
the spine so it is straight.
Linkages along the spine are
used to reshape it into a more
normal physiological position,
relieving pain and providing
greater balance for the patient.
The procedure can be performed
on patients ages 15 to 80. It is
often used to treat adults who
underwent the Harrington Rod
surgical procedure as children or
teenagers.
"The Harrington Rod is a
stainless steel or titanium rod


placed in the back of a patient to
correct imperfections in the
spine. However, while the rod
will correct side-to-side spinal
curvatures, it does not restore
swayback an-abnormal forward
curvature of the spine and may
cause chronic pain," said Dr.
Moreno.
To ensure surgical accuracy,
comfort and the safety.of a
patient during a pedicle subtrac-
tion o.teolomrn. the patient will
also undergo mtraoperati'e neu-
roph. siologic monitoring daring
the surgery Tins in\ol\es the
placing of an electrode the size
of a pinhead in the scalp and
stimulating the brain with an
electrical signal that travels
down'the spine. The signal pro-
vides the orthopaedic spine sur-
geon with information about
how the procedure is affecting
nerves along the spine.
Intraoperative neurophysiologic
monitoring allows the patient to
remain under general anesthesia
and ensures the protection of the
nervous system during surgery.
Since 1997 Mease
Countryside has been awarded
nine Top 100 Hospital designa-
tions in the areas of stroke,
orthopaedic, intensive care and
overall care by the Solucient 100
Top Hospitals: National
Benchmarks for Success.
In 2003, the hospital was
awarded Magnet Designation by
the American Nurses
Credentialing Center, the most
prestigious national recognition
of excellence in nursing care.
Mease Countryside Hospital is
located at 3231 McMullen
Booth Rd., Safety Harbor, Fla.,

FSU Etruscan expert

announces historic

discovery at ancient site


By Barry Ray
FSU
Digging on a remote hilltop
in Italy, a Florida State
University classics professor and
her students have unearthed arti-
facts that dramatically reshape
our knowledge of the religious
practices of an ancient people,
the Etruscans.
"We are excavating a monu-
mental Etruscan building evi-
dently dating to the final years of
Etruscan civilization," said
Nancy Thomson de Grummond,
the M. Lynette Thompson
Professor of Classics. at FSU and
director of the university's
archaeology programs in Italy.
Within the building, de'
Grummond's team located in
early June what appears to be a
sacrificial pit and a sanctuary-
finds remarkable for the wealth
of items they are yielding that
appear to have been.used in reli-
gious rituals.
Nearly every summer since
1983, de Grummond has taken
groups of FSU students into
Italy's Tuscany region to partici-
pate in archaeological digs at
Cetamura del Chianti, a site once
inhabited by the Etruscans and
ancient Romans. In the final
days of this year's program, de
Grummond and her students
unearthed what she calls "the
most thrilling" find she has seen
in 23 years at Cetamura.
She explained that the
Etruscans, who once ruled most
of the Italian peninsula, were
conquered and absorbed by the
Romans..n the second and first
centuries B.C.E. ("Before the
Common Era"). Prior to that
time, however, they were a high-
ly advanced civilization that
constructed roads, buildings and
sewer systems and developed
the first true cities in Europe.
They also built large, complex
religious sanctuaries-which
may have been the. purpose
served, in part, by the Cetamura
structure.
"The building has a highly


irregular plan, with stone foun-
dations 3 or 4 feet thick," she
said. "One wing of the building
is about 60 feet long, flanking a
space that has walls running at
right angles. Some walls run on
a diagonal to the grid, or are
curved. There are paved areas
alternating with beaten earth
floors and what I believe (o be a
large courtyard in the middle.
Some of the foundations are so
heavy and thick that they could
easily have supported multisto-
ried elements.
Within the building's court-
yard, de Grummond said, is a
freestanding sandstone platform
that likely served as an altar. A
few feet away, she and her stu-
dents unearthed "the most fasci-
nating find Of all a pit filled
with burnt offerings for the gods.
"In all, the pit contained
approximately 10 vessels, some
miniature and thus clearly
intended only as gifts for the
gods," de Grummond said. 'On
the other hand, several of the
vessels were quite large, includ-
ing one storage vessel, probably
for grain, and a huge pitcher,
probably for wine. There also
were little cups for drinking and
a bowl for eating, as well as a
small beaker of the type that
holds oil or spices. All of these
vessels were ceramic, some ritu-
ally broken and but with most or
all of the fragments buried
together in the pit. Further, most
of the pots seem to be locally
made rather than imported. They
were offering to the gods their
own special creations.
"We should be able to
restore these vases and have
quite a splendid array of
Etruscan pottery dating from a
single moment and a particular
place in their history," de
Grummond said.
Also of great interest to de
Grummond was the discovery of
some 10 iron nails deposited in
the pit, all in an excellent state of
preservation.

It's easy being green at the
Eco-Garden Conference
Some of the things that make gardeners
smile-and wince-are on the schedule at
the annual Eco Garden Conference at
Pinellas Extension, 12175 125th St. N.,
Largo, on Saturday, Aug. 5. The conference
is sponsored by Florida Yards &
Neighborhoods and Pinellas County
Extension.
From 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., gardening
experts will help you create more beautiful
green spaces in your home. Protecting trees
on your property during storm season, creat-
ing Florida-friendly landscaping, learning
about creepy crawlies and tips on selecting
healthy plants are topics on the agenda.
Lunch, snacks and course materials are pro-
vided. Door-prize drawings are also on the
schedule. County departments and other
exhibitors will have materials available for
attendees.
The Florida Yards & Neighborhoods
program is a grant-funded partnership
involving Tampa Bay Water, the Pinellas-
Anclote River Basin Board of the Southwest
Florida Water Management District and

Exhibition featuring portraits
of local survivors and
liberators to open at museum
The Florida Holocaust Museum is
pleased to open two exhibitions: Fragments:
Portraits of Survivors and Liberators:
Unexpected Outcomes. The exhibits open
July 8 through October 22 and capture the
expressions'of memories of both Holocaust
survivors and liberators.
Fragments: Portraits of Survivors will
feature one hundred-twelve (112) 16 x 20
black and white photographs of local
Holocaust survivors. Accompanying each
portrait is a handwritten statement from the
survivor in the photo. As if the photography
of Jason Schwartz is not enough, the sur-
vivors' handwritten statements emote an
even deeper and more personal level of their
thoughts and feelings, bringing viewers one
step closer to the survivor.
"I survived ... I beat Hitler" is just one
statement of many that quietly communi-
c::,ae the importance-of this exhibition and;
its pFo er to speak, to all generaifins The'
pictures and thoughts tell of the trials and tri-
umphs of these extraordinary men and
women survivors who bravely tell their sto-
ries as first-hand testimonies of a tragic time
during the 20th century. Their memories
give a voice to the voiceless.
The black and white photographs of the
liberators tell a different story. Liberators:.
Unexpected Outcomes features 18 pho-
tographs of local U.S. troops who, as first
responders and liberators at the end of
WWII, witnessed the horrors behind camp
gates. Without preparation ;r warning, these
men happened upon -unexpected and
unimaginable scenes during regular military
operations. Their stories are featured in pho-
tography by Coe Arthur Younger, as well as
in an accompanying video that highlights the
testimonies of several local liberators and
survivors.

ATTACHMENT "A" FOR DISCRETIONARY PUBLICATION
OF NOTICE O)F DETERMINATION OF QUALIFICATION
FOR AN EXEMPTION
DEP File No.: 52-0(240960-003
County: Pinellas

In the Matter of an Application
for a Deltermination of Qualification
for an Exemption by:

Tim Stefan cl al.
1487 Occanview Drive
Tierra Verde. FL 33715

The Departmennt of Environimcntal Protection gives notice
that it has received a request for authorization to maintenance
dredge 47.941 square feet of hll Oceanview Drive Channel and
Hurricane Hole basin to a final dredge depth of -4.0 feet at mean
low water, in Ticrra Verde' by Tim Steflan et al. The Department
has determined that the project qualifies for ai exemption estab-
lished under 40D-4.051(8)(d). Florida Administrative Code.
A person whose substantial interests are affected by the
Department's action may petition for an administrative proceed-
ing (hearing) under sections 120.569 and 120.57 of the Florida
Statutes. The petition must contain the information set forth
below and must be filed (received by the clerk) in the Office of
General Counsel of the Department at 3900 Commonwealth
Boulevard. Mail Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000.
Mediation is not available.
If a timely and sufficient petition for an administrative hear-
ing is filed, other persons whose substantial interests will be
affected by the outcome of the administrative process have the
right to petition to intervene in the proceeding. Intervention will
be permitted only at the discretion of the presiding officer upon
the filing of a motion in compliance with rule 28.106.205 of the
Florida Administative Code.
In accordance with rule 62-110.106(3). Florida
Administrative Code, petitions for an administrative hearing
must be filed within 21 days of publication of the notice or
receipt of written notice, whichever occurs first. Under rule 62-
110.106(4) of the Florida Administrative Code, a person whose
substantial interests arc affected by the Department's action may
also request an extension of time to file a petition for an admin-
istrative hearing. The Department may, for good cause shown,
grant the request for an extension of time. Requests for extension
of time must be filed with the Office of General Counsel of the
Department at 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail Station 35,
Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000 prior to the applicable deadline.
A timely request for extension of time shall toll the running of the
time period for filing a petition until the request is acted upon.
Upon motion by the requesting party showing that the failure to
file a request for an extension of time before the deadline was the
result of excusable neglect, the Department may also grant the
requested extension of time.
The petitioner shall mail a copy of the petition to the appli-
cant at the address indicated above at the time of filing. The fail-
ure of any person to file a petition for an administrative hearing
within the appropriate time period shall constitute a waiver of
that right.
A petition that disputes the material facts on which the
Department's action is based must contain the following infor-
mation:
(a) The name and address of each agency affected and each
agency's file or identification number, if known;
(b) The name, address, and telephone number of the
petitioner: the name, address, and telephone number of
the petitioner's representative, if any, which shall be the
address for service purposes during the course of the
proceeding; and an explanation of how the petitioner's
substantial interests are or will be affected by the agency
determination;
(c) A statement of when and how the petitioner received
notice of the agency decision;
(d) A statement of all disputed issues of material fact. If
there are none, the petition must so indicate;
(e) A concise statement of the ultimate facts alleged, includ-
ing the specific facts the petitioner contends warrant
reversal or modification of the agency's proposed action;
(f) A statement of the specific rules or statutes that the
petitioner contends require reversal or modification of
the agency's proposed action; and
(g) A statement of the relief sought by the petitioner, stating
precisely the action that the petitioner wishes the agency
to take with respect to the agency's proposed action.

A petition that does not dispute the material facts on which
the Department's action is based shall state that no such facts are
in dispute and otherwise shall contain the same information as set
forth above, as required by rule 28-106.301.
Under sections 120.569(2)(c) and (d) of the Florida Statutes,
a petition for administrative hearing shall be dismissed by the
agency if the petition does not substantially comply with the

Etruscan, from 2

"These reflect what we know from
ancient texts in Latin that note that the
Etruscans treated nails as sacred, and regard-
ed them as symbolizing inexorable fate," she
said. "They had a ritual practice in regard to
their deity Nurtia in which they would ham-
mer a nail into the wall of the temple each
year as a tribute to the goddess. We cannot
yet be sure about the cultic significance of
the nails of Cetamura, but they may well
relate to the passage of time and thus to the
sacred calendar of the Etruscans."
One of de Grummond's students also
unearthed an Etruscan'inscription on a shard
of pottery that contained the name of a little-
known Etruscan god, Lurs .
"Almost nothing is known about Lurs,
but we may have at Cetamura some very rare
evidence about his worship," she said.
De Grummond is a leading scholar on
the religious practices of the Etruscans, a
people whose culture profoundly influenced
the ancient Romans and Greeks. "The
Religion of the Etruscans," a book written
and edited by de Grummond and Erika
Simon, another expert in classical archaeolo-
gy who served as the Langford Family
Emineni Scholar in Classics at FSU in 1999,
was published last spring. De Grummond
soon will release another book, "Etruscan
Myth, Sacred History.and Legend."
De Grummond'said she hopes-to contin-
ue excavating the Cetamura sacred area, and
building on nearly a quarter-century of
knowledge that she has gathered there.
"It is a bit eerie to have excavated some-
thing so central to my own lifelong interest
in the myth, religion and rituals of the
Etruscans," she said. "Without a doubt, this
is one of the most exciting of the discoveries
I have experienced."

USF public art program



among top ten in the nation


The University of South
Florida Institute for Research in
Art, College of Visual &
Performing Arts, has gained
recognition from Public Art
Review magazine in its
Spring/Summer edition for hav-
ing one of the top ten best art-on-
campus programs in the nation.
"The USF public art collec-
tion stands out because it has
been built with artists selected
for their significance in contem-
porary art and their relevance to
the collection rather than the
standard 'call for artists' process
that rarely attracts major artists,"
stated art critic Lennie Bennett,
who was quoted in the article.


Public Art Review (PAR), a
program of FORECAST Public
Artworks, is the only national
journal focused on exploring the
many dimensions of public art.
The publication provides cover-
age of growing trends, reflection
on critical issues and surveys
many of the latest public art pro-
jects happening in the United
States and around the world.
"We, as part of a university,
and greater Tampa Bay as a com-
munity, have every reason to be
proud to have art of such a high
caliber in our midst," said
Margaret Miller, director of the
Institute for Research in Art,
"We hope this kind of recogni-


tion will encourage people from
all walks of life to become regu-
lar visitors to our shows and
exhibitions."
USF has worked with many
of the nation's most prominent
public artists to develop major
projects completed by such pre-
mier artists as Alice Aycock,
Dale Eldred, Richard Fleischner,
Doug Hollis, Nancy Holt, Tim
Rollins and K.O.S., James
Rosenquist, Ned Smyth, and
Elyn Zimmerman.
"The focus of the public art
program at USF is on-site
responsive works," said Vincent
Ahem, director of the public art
program, "Projects also have


offered opportunities to emerg-
ing artists from throughout the
state as well as other parts of the
country and the world."
Significant projects by
Richard Beckman, Maria
Castagliola, Robert Calvo,
Harrison Covington and Gary
Moore, among others, amplify
the USF collection and %provide
opportunities to experience a
broad spectrum of contemporary
public art.

NOAA issues service assessment


report on Hurricane Katrina


The NOAA National
Weather Service released an
internal evaluation of its opera-
tions during Hurricane Katrina.
Service assessments are done
routinely following major
weather events and include input
from government agencies,
emergency managers, media and
the public.
The NOAA National
Hurricane Center consistently
projected for more than two days
in advance that Katrina would
strike southeast Louisiana as a
"m'nalr ,hurricane and later
issued hurricane watches and
warnings with lead times of 44
and 32 hours; respectively-an
extra eight hours beyond when
such alerts are typically issued.
"The accurate forecasts pro-
vided for extended warning
times," said Brig. Gen. David L.
Johnson, U.S. Air Force (Ret.),
director of the NOAA National


Weather Service. "Our ability to
identify where a major hurricane
would hit the Gulf Coast was
among the actions that saved
countless lives."
Katrina first crossed the
U.S. coast as a Category 1 hurri-
cane near the border of Broward
and Miami-Dade counties in
Florida on August 25. Katrina
was a Category 3 hurricane with
top winds of 125 mph during its
second landfall in Buras, La., on
August 29, and soon thereafter
made its final landfall near the
border of Louisiana :ar.d
Mississippi. -
Service assessments are a
valuable contribution to the
ongoing efforts to improve the
timeliness and effectiveness of
NOAA National Weather
Service products and services.
"The Hurricane Katrina assess-
ment highlights the best prac-
tices while recommending


improvements that will allow the
National Weather Service to bet-
ter serve the American public in
effort to protect life and proper-
ty," added Johnson.
Thirteen "best practices"
were identified in the Katrina
assessment, among them:
*Max Mayfield, director of
the NOAA National Hurricane
Center, contacting the governors
of Louisiana and Mississippi, the
mayor of New Orleans and-the
Alabama Emergency
Management Agency to empha-
size the sexerit\ of Katrina.
T. The, NOAA : National
Weather Service forecast office
in Slidell, La., which serves New
Orleans, issuing vividly worded
statements that explicitly
described the impending cata-
strophic damage expected from
Katrina.
*Deploying incident meteo-
rologists to Louisiana in the


aftermath of Katrina to fill gaps
in the weather observation net-
work created by the hurricane.
Recommendations also
were cited in the assessment and
are currently being addressed by
the NOAA National Weather
Service. They include:
*Provide all appropriate
weather forecast offices with
standard hurricane impact state-
ment templates, similar to those
issued by the forecast office in
Slidell, La.
*Evaluate current telecom-
miunications netw.oilks for poten-
tial single points of failure and
developing alternate networks to
better support field office back-
up operations.
*Establish alternative com-
munications systems for field
offices to communicate with
other NOAA National Weather
Service offices and emergency
officials.


Competition from travel,

grilling and chilling erode Early drinking linked to higher lifetime

the real meaning of the alcoholism risk


As Americans fired up their
grills and bottle rockets during
the extended Fourth of July hol-
iday weekend, less than half the
nation was expected to celebrate
our independence from England
and the birth of a great and
enduring democracy, a Zogby
Interactive poll revealed.
Just 48% of those surveyed
said that they specifically mark
the Fourth of July as a time to
celebrate America' indepen-
dence. Another 33 percent said
they see the holiday as an oppor-
tunity to spend time with family
and friends, while much smaller
percentages look at the Fourth as
just a day off from work (6%), or
as a break from the routine to
allow some summer travel (2%).
The Zogby Interactive sur-
vey, including 1,884 respon-
dents, was conducted on June
28-29, 2006, and carries a mar-
gin of error of +/- 2.3 percentage
points.
When' it comes to celebrat-
ing America's independence,
there is a huge division down
party lines, the poll shows.
Sixty-five percent of
Republicans said they use the
Fourth for that purpose, while
just 30 percent of Democrats
said the same. Almost half
(48%) of independents agreed.
Among men, 55 percent
said they celebrate the nation'
independence on the Fourth,
compared to 42 percent of
women. Patriotism appears to


generally increase with 'age.
While 55 percent of those age 65
and older specifically celebrate
national independence, just 40
percent of 18-29 -year-olds
agreed. There was some small
differences depending on geog-
raphy those living in the West
(53%), South (50%), and
Central/Great Lakes (50%) areas
celebrate independence more
than those in the East (40%),
while those in rural areas (56%)
and small cities (51%) do so
more than large city residents
(47%) and suburbanites (43%).
Although they may, not be
celebrating the true meaning of
Independence Day, Americans
are adamant about keeping the
holiday on the Fourth of July,
regardless of what day of the
week it may fall. Seventy-seven
percent say they would not favor
moving the holiday to the first
Monday of the month to simpli-
fy time off from work, mirroring
the. treatment of several other
holidays. And 80 percent said
that celebrating the Fourth of
July on a different day would
diminish its meaning.
With gas prices markedly
higher this year than last, an
overwhelming majority of
Americans planned on staying
close to home for the holiday, as
78 percent said they did not plan
to travel very far. However, most
said higher gas prices had noth-
ing'to do with their decision not
to travel.


Data from a survey of
43,000 U.S. adults heighten con-
cerns that early alcohol use,
independent of other risk factors,
may contribute to the risk of
developing future alcohol prob-
lems. Those who began drinking
in their early teens were not only
at greater risk of developing
alcohol dependence at. some
point in their lives, they were
also at greater risk of developing
dependence more quickly and at
younger ages, and of developing
chronic, relapsing dependence.
Among all respondents who
developed alcoholism at some
point, almost half (47 percent)
met the diagnostic criteria for
alcohol dependence (alcoholism)
by age 21.
The associations between
early drinking and later prob-
lems held even after investiga-
tors controlled for other risk fac-
tors for dependence, adding to
concerns that drinking at a
young age might raise the risk of
future alcohol problems rather
than being an identifying feature
of young people predisposed to
risky behavior. The study
appears in the July issue of
Archives of Pediatrics &
Adolescent Medicine (volume
160, pages 739-746).
Elias A. Zerhouni, M.D.,
director of the NIH, said, "This
is a very good example of how
insights gained from health
research can inform public poli-
cy. Converging research sug-
gests that youthful drinking is
associated with an increased risk
of long-term, not just acute,
health consequences."
Scientists at the Boston


University School of Public
Health and Youth Alcohol
Prevention Center, led by Dr.
Ralph Hingson*, carried out the
analysis using data from the
2001-2002 National
Epidemiologic Survey on
Alcohol and Related Conditions
(NESARC), a representative sur-
vey of the U.S. civilian noninsti-
tutionalized population aged 18
years and older.
NESARC involved face to
face interviews with adults ages
18 and older. The survey used
questions based on diagnostic
criteria for alcohol abuse and
alcohol dependence from the
American Psychiatric
Association's Diagnostic and
Statistical Manual of Mental
Disorders-Fourth Edition (DSM-
IV). In the study, "starting to
drink" meant the age when
respondents first drank alcohol,
not counting tastes or sips.
NIAAA Director Dr. Ting-
Kai Li said "this work under-
scores the need for research to
clarify how early drinking
relates to the risk of lifetime
alcohol problems. In particular,
it is important to learn whether
early alcohol use may affect the
developing brain in ways that
increase vulnerability to depen-
dence."
In results that echo earlier
studies, of those individuals who
began drinking before age 14, 47
percent experienced dependence
at some point, vs. 9 percent of
those who began drinking at age
21 or older. In general, each
additional year earlier than 21
Lhat a respondent began to drink,
the greater the odds that he or


she would develop alcohol
dependence at some pdint in life.
While one quarter of all drinkers
in the survey started drinking by
age 16, nearly half (46 percent)
of drinkers who developed alco-
hol dependence began drinking
at age 16 or younger.
New findings showed that
among all drinkers, early drink-
ing was associated not only with
a higher risk of developing alco-
holism at some point, but also
within 10 years of first starting
to drink, before age 25, and
within any year of adult life.
Early drinking was also associat-
ed with increased risk of having
multiple episodes of alcoholism.
Further, among respondents who
had had alcohol dependence at
some point, those who began
drinking young had episodes of
longer duration and with a wider
range of symptoms than those
who started later.
Previous research has estab-
lished the link between early
onset of drinking and lifetime
diagnosis of alcoholism. Key to
understanding the relationship
between early drinking and alco-
holism risk is whether the act of
drinking while young raises life-
time risk, or whether early drink-
ing reflects an underlying predis-
position for risky behavior in
particular young people. In the
latter case, early drinking would
be considered a marker identify-
ing individuals already at risk for
developing alcoholism. In this
study, investigators attempted to
account for factors such as
family history of alcoholism,
childhood antisocial behavior
and depression, and smoking


and drug use known to be
associated with higher risk. Even
controlling for a number of risk
factors and the effects of age dif-
ferences among respondents,
early drinking was associated
with an increased risk of lifetime
alcohol diagnosis.
In calculating the impact of
early drinking on the risk of
experiencing alcoholism, the
study used statistical methods
that account for the fact that
older respondents have had a
longer window of opportunity to
develop alcoholism than
younger respondents. The risk of
those who began drinking before
age 14 was multiplied by a factor
(or "hazard ratio") of 1.78 rela-
tive to those who started drink-
ing at age 21 or older.
The recently released 2005
Youth Risk Behavior Survey -
conducted by the Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention
- found that among high school
students nationwide, 26 percent
had drunk alcohol (other than a
few sips) for the first time before
age 13.
The authors conclude that
the results of both studies sup-
port the need to take measures to
delay alcohol consumption by
underage youth. Dr. Hingson
said, "This analysis suggests that
interventions that delay drinking
onset may not only reduce the
'acute consequences of drinking
among youth, but may help

Lightning sign All-Star


defenseman Filip Kuba


The Tampa Bay Lightning
have signed free agent defense-
man Filip Kuba to a three-year,
$9 million contract, Executive
Vice President and General
Manager Jay Feaster announced.
Kuba, a 6-foot-3, 205-
pound native of Ostrava, Czech
Republic, skated in 65 games
with Minnesota in 2005-06,
ranking second among team
defensemen in scoring with six
goals and 19 assists. The 2004
NHL All-Star also led the Wild
with an average of 21:46 in ice
time. Kuba, 29, tallied one goal
in eight games for the Czech
Republic as they captured the
Bronze Medal at the 2006
Winter Olympics.
"Filip Kuba is a solid,
steady, top four, All-Star
defenseman who has adapted
well to the 'new NHL,' Feaster
said. "We believe that playing
within our system will enable
him to post even bigger offen-
sive numbers and we are confi-
dent our forwards will enjoy
playing with someone who is


able to get them the puck quick-
ly and help with our transition
game. He is an experienced
player with size who is capable
of logging a lot of minutes, and
who is coming from a system in
which defensive responsibility is
stressed. While we were disap-
pointed to lose Pavel Kubina
today, we are excited to fill that
hole with such a high caliber
player."
Originally selected 192nd
overall by Florida at the 1995
NHL Entry Draft, Kuba played
parts of two seasons with the
Panthers before being traded to
Calgary and then claimed by
Minnesota in the 2000 NHL
Expansion Draft. He made an
immediate impact for the Wild,
appearing in 75 games in 2000-
01 and leading the team in game-
winning goals (4), power-play
points (14) and ice time (24:14,
also led all NHL rookies). He
also ranked second on the Wild
in blocked shots (136), third in
assists (21), third and shots (141)
and tied for third in points (9-


21=30) that season.
Kuba made his first trip to
Stanley Cup Playoffs in 2002-
03, posting three goals and eight
points in 18 games to lead all
Wild defensemen in scoring as
the team advanced to the
Western Conference Final. He
also led the Wild in playoff aver-
age ice time at 26:45. In his NHL
career, Kuba has appeared in 375
games, recording 34 goals, 139
points and 163 penalty minutes.
Prior to joining the NHL,
Kuba played two season for
Vitkovice of the Czech
Republic, and he also recorded
nine goals and 48 points in 200
career games with Carolina,
New Haven and Kentucky of the
American Hockey League and
Houston of the International
Hockey League.
In addition to his Olympic
appearance, Kuba skated for the
Czech Republic at the 2001 and
2002 World Championships,
capturing the Gold Medal in
2001.


Lightning trade defenseman


Darryl Sydor to Dallas


The Tampa Bay Lightning
have acquired a fourth-round
choice in the 2008 NHL Entry
Draft from the Dallas Stars in
exchange for defenseman Darryl
Sydor, Executive Vice President
and General Manager Jay
Feaster announced Sunday.
Sydor, 34, skated in 80
games with the Lightning in
2005-06, recording four goals,
23 points and 30 penalty min-
utes. He also played in all five
Stanley Cup Playoff games,
recording one assist. Sydor, who
won the Stanley Cup with Dallas
in 1999, was acquired by the
Lightning from Columbus on


January 27, 2004 and appeared
in the last 31 games of the sea-
son as Tampa Bay captured the
Eastern Conference's top seed.
He appeared in all 23 Stanley
Cup Playoff games, recording
'six assists, as the Lightning cap-
tured the Stanley Cup.
"This is the worst part of
living in the salary cap era, par-
ticularly when you are coming
off the success we had in 2004,"
Feaster said. "Darryl Sydor is
one of the toughest competitors
and greatest team players ever to
wear the Lightning sweater. He
was the missing piece that
helped us win the Stanley Cup


and his leadership has been
invaluable.
"It is terribly painful to
trade Syd, and yet in the cap
world, given the commitments
we have already made and the
priorities we have established,
we simply do not have the luxu-
ry of continuing to carry his
salary. We needed to make this
move in order to give ourselves
the cap space and flexibility nec-
essary to complete our own
Group II signing and finish
assembling our roster for the
upcoming season."


Lightning acquire goaltender

Marc Denis from Columbus


The Tampa Bay Lightning
have acquired veteran goaltender
Marc Denis from the Columbus
Blue Jackets in exchange for left
wing Fredrik Modin and goal-
tender Fredrik Norrena,
Executive Vice President and
General Manager Jay Feaster
announced last Friday. Denis,
28, has spent the past seven
years in the NHL, six with
Columbus, and has posted a
record of 94-156-28 with a
goals-against average of 2.97
and a save percentage of .906.
Denis was 17-6-1 in 2005-06
and 77-34-12 in his Blue Jackets
career when the team scored
three goals or more.
"Marc Denis is a solid,
.steady, durable, proven No. 1
goaltender in the NHL," Feaster
said. "He is a workhorse and a
fierce competitor with one of the
best glove hands in the league.
He is also a young man who has
not yet reached the prime of his
career. We have scouted Marc
extensively and had actually tar-
geted him as early as the trade
deadline this past season. Our
belief in his skills and his ability
to fit in well within our locker
room has never wavered. We are
confident Marc will bring us the
type of reliable and consistent
goaltending we need in order to
return our franchise to the type
of success we have enjoyed in
the past.
"The most difficult part of
this deal is having to include
Fredrik Modin, a player who


helped this franchise establish
credibility and then helped us
become Stanley Cup
Champions. As I have said
repeatedly, in the 'perfect world'
we would have kept our 2004
championship team together for
a long time. However, in the new
world of the salary cap, it simply
is not possible. As thrilled as we
are to be adding Marc Denis to
our organization it is very tough
to part with 'Big Mo.' "
Denis, a 6-foot-1, 193-
pound native of Montreal, was
selected in the first round, 25th
overall, by Colorado at the 1995
NHL Entry Draft. He played
three standout seasons with
Chicoutimi of the Quebec Major
Junior Hockey, League and was
named the Canadian Major
Goaltender of the Year, a
Canadian Major Junior First-
Team All-Star' and a QMJHL
First-Team All-Star in 1997 after
leading Chicoutimi to a
Memorial Cup berth with a 22-
15-2 record and 2.69 goals-
against average.
Denis made his NHL debut
by playing one game for
Colorado during the 1996-97
season, and he joined Hershey of
the American Hockey League
for the playoffs that year and
helped the Bears capture the
Calder Cup while appearing in
four games. He became a regular
for Hershey the following sea-
son, and in two seasons with the
Bears (1997-98, 1998-99) he
posted a 37-46-9 record and 2.86


goals-against average and won
the top goaltender award at the
1999 AHL All-Star Classic.
After one season as a back-
up in Colorado, Denis was
acquired by Columbus in 2000
and he improved his goals-
against. average in each of his
first four seasons. In 2002-03 he
posted a career-best 27 wins for
a team that won 29 games total,
and in 2003-04 he posted a
career-best 2.56 goals-against
average as the Blue Jackets won
25 games.
Denis, who established what
was then an NHL record with
4,511 minutes played in 2002-
03, has excelled in penalty shot
and shootout situations in his
career. He has stopped seven of
eight career penalty shots faced,
and in 2005-06 he was 3-1 in
shootouts, stopping 14 of 18
shots against.
At the 2006 World
Championships in Latvia, Denis
posted an undefeated 4-0-1
record with a goals-against aver-
age of 2.51 and a save percent-
age of .911 for Canada. In his
International career, Denis is 11-
0-3 in 15 games for his home-
land, having also helped Canada
to the Gold Medal at the 1996
and 1997 World Junior
Championships. After posting a
5-0-2 record and 1.86 goals-
against average at the 1997 tour-
nament, he Wvas named the top
goaltender in the tournament.


Lightning re-sign left wing Norm Milley


The Tampa Bay Lightning
have re-signed left. wing Norm
Milley to a one-year contract,
Executive Vice President and
General Manager Jay Feaster
announced Tuesday.
Milley, a 6-foot, 195-pound
native of Toronto, played in 14
games with the Lightning in
2005-06. He scored two goals,
the first of his NHL career, and
had three points in his first sea-


son in Tampa Bay. He scored
one goal on the power play and
averaged more than seven min-
utes of ice time per game with
the Lightning.
"We are very excited to have
Norm Milley under contract for
the upcoming season," Feaster
said. "During the 2005-06 cam-
paign Norm demonstrated that
he is more than capable of play-
ing in the NHL and is knocking


on the door of being a regular.
He needs to train as never before
this summer so that he comes
into camp in the best shape of his
life to really give himself a legit-
imate chance to make our hock-
ey team.
Milley appeared in 53
games with the Springfield
Falcons of the American Hockey
League last season and ranked
third on the team in goals.


Lightning sign LW Nikita Alexeev


The Tampa Bay Lightning
have signed left wing Nikita
Alexeev to a one-year contract,
Executive Vice President and
General Manager Jay Feaster
announced Saturday.
A 6-foot-5, 225-pound
native of Murmansk, Russia,
Alexeev, 24, spent the 2005-06
season with Omsk of the Russian
Elite League, where he recorded
six goals and nine points in 40
games. The Lightning's first-
round selection, eighth overall,
in the 2000 Entry Draft, the
speedy winger appeared in 37


games with Tampa Bay in 2002-
03, recording four goals and two
assists. He played in all 11
Stanley Cup Playoff games that
season, scoring one goal.
"Following the 2002-03
season, and particularly the play-
offs, we fully expected Nikita
Alexeev to earn a permanent ros-
ter spot with the Lightning,"
Feaster said. "Unfortunately, that
did not happen and ultimately,
Nikita elected to return to
Russia. He has now decided he
wants to return to the NHL and
compete for a spot on our roster.


We have openings throughout
our forward lines, and it is up to
Nikita not only to grab one of
those spots but to demonstrate
that he can be a major two-way
contributor to our hockey club.
We look forward to seeing him
in camp this year."
Alexeev made his Lightning
debut in 2001-02, recording four
goals and four assists in 44
games while splitting time with
the Lightning and Springfield of
the AHL.

NASA satellite positioning software


may aid
University scientists using
Global Positioning System
(GPS) software developed by
NASA's Jet Propulsion
Laboratory, Pasadena, Calif.,
have shown that GPS can deter-
mine, within minutes, whether
an earthquake is big enough to
generate an ocean-wide tsunami.
This NASA-funded technology
can be used to provide faster
tsunami warnings.
A team led by Dr. Geoffrey
Blewitt of the Nevada Bureau of
Mines and' Geology and
Seismological Laboratory,
University of Nevada, Reno,
demonstrated that a large quake's
true size can be determined with-
in 15 minutes using GPS data.
This is much faster than is possi-
ble with current methods.
"Tsunami warning is a race
against time," said co-author Dr.
Seth Stein, Department of
Geological Sciences,
Northwestern University,
Evanston, Ill. "Tsunamis travel
at jet speed, so warning centers
must accurately decide, within
minutes, whether to issue alerts.
This has to be done fast enough
for the warning to be distributed
to authorities in impacted areas
so they can implement response
plans.. Together with seismome-
ter and ocean buoy data, GPS
adds another' tool that can
'improve future tsunami danger
assessments."
"We'll always need seismol-
ogy as the first level of alert for
large earthquakes, and we'll need
ocean buoys to actually sense the
tsunami waves," added Blewitt.
"The advantage of including
GPS in warning systems is that it
quickly tells how much the


in tsunami warnings


ocean floor moved, and that
information can directly set
tsunami models into motion."
The new method, called
GPS displacement, works by
measuring the time radio signals
from GPS satellites arrive at
ground stations located within a
few thousand kilometers of a
quake. From these data, scien-
tists can calculate how far the
stations moved because of the
quake. They can then derive an
earthquake model and the
quake's true size, called its
'moment magnitude.' This mag-
nitude is directly related to a
quake's potential for generating
tsunamis.
As illustrated by the magni-
tude 9.2-9.3 Sumatra quake of
December 2004, current scientif-
ic methods have difficulty quick-
ly determining moment magni-
tude for very large quakes. That
quake was first estimated at 8.0
using seismological techniques
designed for rapid analysis.
Because these techniques derive
estimates from the first seismic
waves they record, they tend to
underestimate quakes larger than
about 8.5. That is the approxi-
mate size needed to generate
major ocean-wide tsunamis. The
initial estimate was the primary
reason warning centers in the
Pacific significantly underesti-
mated the earthquake's tsunami
potential.
The potential of GPS to
contribute to tsunami warning
became apparent after the
Sumatra earthquake. GPS mea-
surements showed that quake
moved the ground permanently
more than 1 centimeter (0.4
inches) as far away as India,


about 2,000 kilometers (1,200
miles) away from the epicenter.
"With signals like that, an earth-
quake this huge can't hide," said
Blewitt. "We hypothesized that
if GPS data could be analyzed
rapidly and accurately, they
would quickly indicate the earih-
quake's true size and tsunami
potential."
To test the feasibility of
their approach, the scientists
used NASA's satellite position-
ing data processing software to
analyze data from 38 GPS sta-
tions located at varying distances
from the Sumatra quake's epi-
center. The software pinpoints a
station's precise location to with-
in 7 millimeters (0.3 inches).
Only data that were available
within 15 minutes of the earth-
quake were used. Results indi-
cated most of the permanent
ground displacements occurred
within a few minutes of the
arrival of the first seismic waves.
Their analysis inferred an earth-
quake model and a moment
magnitude of 9.0, very near the
earthquake's final calculated
size.
"Modeling earthquakes with
GPS requires a robust, real-time
ability to predict where GPS
satellites are in space with exact-
ing precision, which our soft-
ware does," said Dr. Frank
Webb, a JPL geologist. "This
technique improves rapid esti-
mates of the true size of great
earthquakes and advances real-
time tsunami modeling capabili-
ties."
Results of the study are pub-
lished in Geophysical Research
Letters.


Ares: NASA's new rockets get names


NASA announced last
Friday the names of. the next
generation of launch vehicles
that will return humans to the
moon and later take them to
Mars and other destinations. The
crew launch vehicle will be
called Ares I, and the cargo
launch vehicle will be known as
Ares V.
"It's appropriate that we
named these vehicles Ares,
which is a pseudonym for Mars,"
said Scott Horowitz, associate
administrator for NASA's
Exploration Systems Mission
Directorate, Washington. "We
honor the past with the number
designations and salute the
future with a name that resonates
with NASA's exploration mis-
sion."


The "I and V" designations
pay homage to the Apollo pro-
gram's Saturn I and Saturn V
rockets, the first large U.S. space
vehicles conceived and devel-
oped specifically for human
spaceflight.
The crew exploration vehi-
cle, which will succeed the space
shuttle as NASA's spacecraft for
human space exploration, will be
named later. This vehicle will be
carried into space by Ares I,
which uses a single five-segment
solid rocket booster, a derivative
of the space shuttle's solid rock-
et booster, for the first stage. A
liquid oxygen/liquid hydrogen J-
2X engine derived from the J-2
engine used on Apollo's second
stage will power the crew explo-
ration vehicle's second stage.


The Ares I can lift more than
55,000 pounds to low Earth
orbit.
Ares V, a heavy lift launch
vehicle, will use five RS-68 liq-
uid oxygen/liquid hydrogen
engines mounted below a larger
version of the space shuttle's
external tank, and two five-seg-
ment solid propellant rocket
boosters for the first stage. The
upper stage will use the same J-
2X engine as the Ares I. The
Ares V can lift more than
286,000 pounds to low Earth
orbit and stands approximately
360 feet tall. This versatile sys-
tem will be used to carry cargo
and the components into orbit
needed to go to the moon and
later to Mars.
