After having received com-
plaints from local residents that
several massage parlors were
operating without licenses, St.
Petersburg police conducted a
sweep of three of those estab-
lishments Tuesday and arrested
five women on a variety of
charges.
Three of the arrests came at
the 'Distinguished Day Spa,'
located at 341 5th Ave. N.
Police say the massage par-
lor, which is loeated,less than a
block away from St. Petersburg
City Council Chairman Bill
Foster's law office, as well as the
Pinellas News office, was oper-
ating without a license.
Sasha Taylor, 28, of St.
Petersburg, was charged with
operating a massage establish-
ment without a license.
Alice Lo'ejo., 41, of
Oldsmar, % as charged % ith unli-
censed practice of health care
and possession of the prescrip-
tion drug Xanax.
Candy K. Worth, 22, of St.
Petersburg, was charged with
prostitution.


Council Chairman Foster
said that people who went to the
spa, which has been open for less
than two months, had been using
his parking lot without permis-
sion.
He said he learned three
weeks ago that police were
investigating the parlor which
promoted its aromatherapy prac-
tice.
"As soon as I heard about
what they were about, I went
over there and made it cleat I
didn't want them (parking) on
my property," said Foster..
Follow ing the arrests
Tuesday, Foster admitted he was
somewhat taken aback by the
activity that is alleged to have
taken place nearby.
'" was surprised at what it
was," Foster said. "I guess in a
way I feel a little naive. I just
thought it was a legitimate busi-
ness." .
.The 'Aloha Spa' at 3448 5th
Ave N. \ as also the scene of an
arrest TuesdaN. Paris Shin, 40,
of St. Petersburg, was charged
with the unlicensed practice of
health care.
The other arrest was made
at 'Aroma and Relax' at 128 49th


St. S. Police charged Carla
Dawn Schwartz, 38, of
Clearwater, with the unlicensed
practice of health care and oper-
ating a massage establishment
without a license.
A Google search
Wednesday of the phrase The
Distinguished Day Spa St.
Petersburg revealed an adver-
tisement for the spa and aro-
matherapy services accompa-
nied by a'photo ofa scantily clad
woman.
Foster said the develop-
ments have 'educated" him and
that he believes there are proba-
bly more suspicious businesses
around.
"They do: it under the guise
of legitimacy," said Foster.
"They iget an occupational
license and they run their illegal
conduct out of there."
He said the city will contin-
ue to crack down.
'"We're not going to tolerate
it," said Foster.
Unlicensed practice of mas-
sages is a felony offense punish-
able by up to five years in prison,
while prostitution is a misde-
meanor offense.


Tom Gallagher,. Florida's
chief financial officer, and
Florida Department of Law
Enforcement Commissioner
Gerald Bailey Tuesday
announced that Florida's fami-
lies for the first time will have
access to information to help
them identify sexual predators'
vehicles via the state's sex
offender web site. The nearly
39,000 offenders currently listed
on the site have victimized chil-
dren as well as adults and the
elderly. Gallagher suggested the
enhanced search feature at a
Cabinet meeting last June.
"This enhancement will
empower Floridians with greater
information about the people
who live in their neighborhoods
so that our children, our seniors
and our loved ones can be
informed and protected,".
Gallagher said.
Gallagher Tuesday also
urged FDLE to pursue establish-
ing a system that would allow
Floridians, free of charge, to
receive a notification when a
sexual predator or offender reg-
isters an address within a certain
distance from their home or
other address such as their
child's college apartment or dor-
nitory or a nursing home where
a parent is receiving care.
Gallagher said he is aware that
sonie private vendors provide a
similar service, but often do so
for a fee.
"Florida especially shines.
when it comes to ensuring that


information about sexual preda-
tors and offenders is readily
accessible," said FDLE
Commissioner Bailey.
"Florida's sexual
predator/offender web site typi-
cally logs over half a million hits
each month. Adding vehicles
and vessels to the site is another
valuable tool for parents, fami-
lies and citizens to use to be
familiar with registered offend-
ers and predators in their area."
Of the 39,000 offenders list-
ed on the web site, currently
about 25,000 are still alive and
living outside of prison, and
about 18,000 have registered
vehicles or vessels, according to
FDLE.
The Web site can be
accessed through the FDLE
home page at
www.fdle.state.fl.us as well as
on the Department of Financial
Services' web site at
www.fldfs.com. These links
also lead to information about
Florida sexual offender, and
predator registration laws, high-
lighted offenders who are want-
ed for failure., to register, and
other related informational links.
As of today, the updated: site will
also include a user-friendly tab
that gives parents up-to-date
information on vehicles and \es-
sels registered to the listedd
offenders. The information will
include the make, tag number,
color, type and year of vehicles
and vessels.

Floyd Suggs (center), president of the West Central Florida
Federation of Labor and members of the the Florida Consumer Action
Network (FCAN) prepare to leave Rep. Michael Biliraki's office
building in Tampa Wednesday after protesting the congressman's
opposition to raising the federal minimum wage.


Saying Rep. Michael
Bilirakis' opposition to raising
the federal minimum wage hurts
working families, community
activists from the Florida
Consumer Action Network
(FCAN) gathered to protest his
votes against a raise for mini-
mum wage workers at a demon-
stration in front of his office on
Wednesday.


Republican-led Congress
last allowed an increase in the
minimum wage ten years ago, in
the summer of 1996. Since that
time, members of Congress have
received eight pay raises for
themselves, while blocking
attempts to raise the federal min-
imum wage for low-wage work-
ers. Rep. Bilirakis has consis-
tently voted to oppose increases.

City of Clearwater and the
Clearwater Regional Chamber
of Commerce announce the
Business Beautification
Recognition Award for
Summer 2006
Thai Coconut Restaurant, 1280 S.
Missouri Ave., is the recipient of the
Summer 2006 Business Beautification
Recognition Award.
The restaurant is located just north of
Lakeview Road on Missouri Avenue. Ake
"Eddie" Punyahotra, owner of the Thai
Coconut Restaurant, purchased the old fast
food restaurant in disrepair and replaced it
with an attractive new building complete
with a new entry way. The new restaurant
includes landscaping throughout the proper-
ty, an irrigation system, signature Thai
accents at the front of the building and a
remolded interior. The building also includes
new signage, and attractive night lighting.
"Its great to see businesses like the Thai
Coconut Restaurant making such a positive
impact in their community," said Mayor
Frank Hibbard. "This is a great example of
how businesses can shine in their communi-
ties."
The Business Beautification
Recognition Award program is a partnership
between the City of Clearwater and the
Clearwater Regional Chamber of
Commerce. The program honors the unique-
ness of Clearwater businesses and encour-
ages the business community to maintain or
make significant improvements to their
property while providing the surrounding
community with a positive sense of place.
A recognition sign will be posted at the
entrance of Thai Coconut Restaurant. A
bronze plaque and certificate will be pre-
sented at the July 20, 2006 City Council
meeting.
Applications for fall awards are avail-
able through Neighborhood Services by call-
ing (727) 562-4585 or 562-4554.

North Pinellas County
reclaimed water system
returns to full operation
The North Pinellas County reclaimed
water system returned to full operation
Saturday morning July 2 2006. With the
return of seasonal rains and customers'
efforts to conserve during the recent
drought, the reclaimed water system in
North County is now capable of operating at
full capacity.
Reclaimed 'water customers are still
encouraged to continue conservation by lim-
iting irrigation to every other day as request-
ed by the Pinellas County Board of County
Commissioners. The voluntary watering on
alternate days should follow the schedule
based on house numbers:
*If your house number ends in an even
number (0, 2, 4, 6, 8), water on Tuesday,


Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday.
*If your house number ends in an odd
number (1, 3, 5, 7, 9), water on Monday,
Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday.
(Note: Sunday is a watering day for all

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.

cant at the address indicated above at the time of filing. The fail-

Attorney General Charlie
Crist announced this week that
this year's School Resource
Officer of the Year award recipi-
ent is Largo Police Officer
Christopher Burke, who is
assigned to Largo Middle School
in Pinellas County. The Attorney
General's Office presented the
award Monday morning at the
annual conference of the Florida
Association of School Resource
Officers in Daytona Beach.
Although he has been at
Largo Middle School for just one
school year, Officer Burke
quickly developed a reputation
among students, faculty and
administration for his ability to
adeptly identify and address stu-
dent needs. One example of his
outstanding guidance and leader-
ship was his ability to diffuse
tensions between various student
groups at the middle school by
inviting the students to develop a
plan to improve student relation-
ships. School administrators
reported that since Officer Burke
intervened, the groups have co-
existed peacefully on campus.
"Officer Burke embodies


the very best of what a School
Resource Officer should be,"
Crist said, "His dedication to the
children at his school led him to
quickly recognize threats to stu-
dent safety and develop solutions
where none had existed before.
The children at Largo Middle
School are safer thanks to his
tireless efforts ".
In addition to addressing
problems between students,
Officer Burke has applied criti-
cal and creative thinking skills to
solve numerous. safety problems
at the school. He was the first
School Resource Officer to
devise a workable plan to
address Largo Middle School's
extreme traffic congestion and
bus release problems. Formerly a
long-standing safety issue, bus
dismissal now takes less than 90'
seconds; before Officer Burke's
safety plan was implemented,
bus release typically took more
than five minutes. Officer Burke
also makes a concerted effort to
interact with students by fre-
quently attending student func-
tions, such as athletic activities
and dances.

AI-Arian co-defendant


receives prison sentence


U.S. District Judge James S.
Moody, Jr., Tuesday sentenced
Hatim Naji Fariz, age 33, of
Spring Hill, Florida, to 37
months' imprisonment and three
years of supervised release. On
June 21, 2006 Fariz plead guilty
to, Count Four, which contained
charges of conspiring to violate a
federal law that prohibits making
or receiving contributions of
funds, goods or services to, or
for the benefit of the Palestinian
Islamic Jihad (PU), a Specially
Designated Terrorist
Organization.
On May 1, 2006 Judge
Moody sentenced a co-defen-
dant, Sami Amin Al-Arian, to 57
months in prison after he plead
guilty to' the same charge. The
Court also entered a stipulated
order of removal, whereby Al-
Arian, an alien, will be deported
from the United States upon con-
clusion of service of his term of
imprisonment.
Al-Arian and Fariz were
arrested in February 2003 fol-
lowing the return of an indict-
ment. Trial commenced before
Judge Moody on June 6, 2005
and concluded on December 6,
2005. The jury failed to reach a
verdict against Al-Arian and
Fariz on nine counts and acquit-
ted them of eight counts.


Five co-defendants remain
fugitives.
In their guilty pleas, Al-
Arian and Fariz admitted that
they performed various services
for the Palestinian Islamic Jihad
(PIJ) in 1995 and thereafter,
knowing that the PU had been
designated as a Specially
Designated Terrorist
Organization and that the PU
engaged in horrific and deadly
acts of violence. Such services
included filing for immigration
benefits for individuals associat-
ed with the PU, hiding the iden-
tities of individuals associated
with the PU, providing assis-
tance for an individual associat-
ed with the PU in a U.S. court
proceeding, mailing packages of
tapes to PIJ co-conspirators
which contained PIJ related
information, and sending funds
to an organization in Gaza which
was associated with the PU.
This case was prosecuted by
Executive Assistant U.S.
Attorney Terry Zitek and
Assistant U.S. Attorney Walter
Furr of the U.S. Attorney's
Office for the Middle District of
Florida, and Trial Attorneys
Cherie Krigsman and Alexis

Consumer confidence rises

in July, but likely to fall in

next few months


By Cathy Keen
UF
The Food and Drug
Administration on Tuesday
approved a new test studied at
the University of Florida that
could lead to better screening for
the most common cause of infec-
tion in newborn babies.
Passed from mother to child
during birth, group B streptococ-
cus can cause sepsis, pneumonia,
meningitis, neurological damage
and, in a small percentage of
newborns, even death.
Although all women are
tested for group B streptococcus
during pregnancy, current
screening methods can leave
some babies at risk for contract-
ing an infection from the bacteri-
um. But the new test, which UF
researchers studied for several
months as part of a clinical trial,
allows health-care workers to
quickly screen mothers during
labor, improving the odds that
babies will receive preventive
care so they will not be infected
during delivery.
"Without any intervention,
(group B strep) is the most com-
mon cause of early-onset infec-
tion in newborns," said Dr.
Rodney Edwards, a UF assistant


professor of obstetrics and gyne-
cology in the College of
Medicine who led the clinical
trial at UF, one of six sites to
study the test. "It can cause sep-
sis, meningitis and pneumonia.
The likelihood of dying if you
are a newborn is 5 percent. (With
meningitis) even if the baby
makes it through the infection
there is a chance of cerebral
palsy and cognitive delay."
The new group B strep test,
developed by the California-
based company Cepheid, allows
doctors to screen for the bacteri-
um during labor. Currently,
women are screened for the
organism a few weeks before
birth because it takes a few days
to receive results from the lab.
But because some women do not
contract the organism until after
they are tested, some babies are
still at risk for infection.
The first clinical molecular
diagnostic test the FDA has
approved, the technology can be
adapted to detect other infections
such as avian flu and even the
deadly bug methicillin-resistant
Staphylococcus aureus, Cepheid
officials say.
About one-quarter of
women carry group B strepto-
coccus in their bodies, according


FSU, Scripps Florida agree

to collaborate on

biomedical research


By Barry Ray
FSU
Florida State University and
the Scripps Research Institute
are taking steps to streamline sci-
entific collaborations between
the two organizations as they
work together on biomedical
research that could lead to treat-
ments for a variety of diseases.
A joint cooperation agree-
jment sighed recently by opcl ials
from FSU and Scripps Florida
will encourage and ,support
research collaborations by reduc-
ing, the time and paperwork
required to share information.
The agreement also will make it
easier for the two to collaborate
on filing patents for jointly
developed technologies and to
share revenues from commer-
cialized innovations.
W. Ross Ellington, FSU's
associate vice president for.
Research, hailed the agreement
as a great opportunity to com-
bine the resources and expertise
of two of Florida's premier bio-
redical research institutions.
"Florida State University
has great strengths in the area of
biomolecular science," Ellington
said. "We use powerful physical
and computational tools to probe
the structure, function and
dynamic properties of large bio-
molecules and complexes of
those molecules. Our strengths
greatly complement the research
and mission of Scripps Florida.
There is a firm basis for collabo-
ration.
"In fact," Ellington said, "a
joint project already has reached
fruition with the recent publica-
tion of a, scientific report involv-
ing Professor Alan Marshall's
mass spectrometry group at the
National High Magnetic Field
Laboratory here in Tallahassee."
Marshall, FSU's Kasha
Professor of Chemistry and
Biochemistry and director of the
Ion Cyclotron Resonance pro-
gram at the magnet lab, worked
with Scripps Florida researchers
to develop and evaluate a robust
new system for analyzing how
drugs bind to proteins. Their
groundbreaking work could
speed the delivery of potential
new drugs and improve existing
ones. That research produced the
first scientific paper generated
by a partnership between Scripps
and a Florida university when
results were published in the
journal Analytical
Chemistry last February. (Read

"It would be helpful in those
instances to have a rapid test to
screen for group B strep."
Edwards said the Cepheid
test takes about 75 minutes to
yield an answer and can be per-
formed by health-care workers
in the hospital, instead of in a
lab.
The test uses technology
known as a polymerase chain
reaction, meaning it can amplify
a small sample of DNA from a
vaginal swab to detect the virus.
Unlike other tests using this
technology, Cepheid's test does
not require the sample to be sep-
arately prepared prior to running
the test. A nurse can insert the
patient's sample directly into the
self-contained test. This is what
makes it so easy, Edwards said.
UF nurses performed the
test on women in labor during
the clinical trial. Lab technicians
also tried out the test to screen
pregnant women prior to labor.
At UF, about 240 women were
screened with the Cepheid test,
Edwards said.
"The test seems to perform
quite well," Edwards said.

1. Dry your ears after
swimming. If it is difficult to get
water out of. your ear, apply a
few drops of an alcohol-based
ear product into the ear. Ask a
pharmacist at your local drug
store for this product.
2. Ask your pool manager
about the chlorine and pH testing
program at your pool. Pools and
hot tubs with good chlorine and

infection.

If you think you or your
children have Swimmer's Ear,
consult your doctor or healthcare
provider.

UF
Consumer confidence
among Floridians rose one point
to 89 in July, but the slumping
real estate market is likely to
cause it to decline over the next
several months, University of
Florida economists report.
"The rise in confidence
among Floridians was weak and
is starting to show signs of the
increased burden on consumers,"
said Chris McCarty, director of
the survey research center at
UF's Bureau of Economic and
Business Research. "The index
and all five of its components are
below their values from a year
ago."
The source of this month's
gain from June was derived from
only two of the five components
that make up the index.
Perceptions of whether it is a
good time to buy big-ticket items
rose five points to 103 and
expectations about personal
finances a year from now rose
five points to 99. However, per-
ceptions of personal finances
compared to a year ago fell four
points to 83, while expectations
of economic conditions over the
next five years fell three points
to 83. Perceptions of U.S. eco-
nomic conditions over the next
year remained the same at 77.
The decline in the compo-
nent measuring perceptions of
personal finances was particular-
ly large for Florida seniors and
lower-income households,
McCarty said. The major reasons
for the downturn were consis-


Scientists on a quest to find
hidden black holes in the local
universe have found surprisingly
few ,, ,. .
SThe observation implies that
if these hidden black holes exist-
--and most scientists are con-
vinced they do---they must be
from the more distant, earlier
universe, a concept that has
interesting implications for
galaxy evolution.
This work constitutes the
first census of the highest-energy
part of the X-ray sky, where the
most dust-enshrouded black
holes are thought to shine. A
team from NASA's Goddard
Space Flight Center in
Greenbel, Md., conducted the
census, comprised of nearly two
years of continuous data from
the European Space Agency's
International Gamma Ray
Astrophysics Laboratory,' or
INTEGRAL, satellite.
"Naturally it is difficult to
find something we know is hid-
ing well and which has eluded
detection so far," said Volker
Beckmann of Goddard and the
University of Maryland,
Baltimore County, lead author on
a report in an upcoming issue of
The Astrophysical 'Journal.
"INTEGRAL is a telescope that
should see nearby hidden black
holes, but we have come up
short."
The X-ray sky is thousands
to millions of times more ener-
getic than the visible sky familiar
to our eyes. Much of the X-ray
activity is from black holes vio-
lently sucking in gas from their
surroundings.
Recent breakthroughs in X-
ray astronomy, including a thor-
ough black hole census with
NASA's Chandra X-ray
Observatpry and Rossi X-ray
Timing Explorer, have all dealt
with lower-energy X-rays. The
energy range is roughly 2,000 to
20,000 electron-volts. Optical
light, in comparison, is about,2
electron volts.
The INTEGRAL survey is
the first of its kind to glimpse
into the largely unexplored high-
er-energy, or "hard," X-ray
regime of 20,000 to 40,000 elec-
tron-volts.
"The X-ray background, this
pervasive blanket of X-ray light
we see everywhere in the uni-
verse, peaks at about 30,000
electron volts, yet we really
know next to nothing about what


tently high energy prices and the
rise in interest rates, he said.
"Although consumer confi-
dence was up a point in July, we
expect the index to decline over
the next several months,"
McCarty said. "We expect a fair-
ly pronounced effect here in
Florida from the decline in the
real estate market. This will
come as a leveling or decline in
home equity, the loss of con-
struction jobs and declining sales
for products related to home con-
struction, such as appliances."
McCarty said he expects to
see the full effect of this decline -
by the end of the year or by the
end of the first quarter of 2007.
Retail sales and chain store sales
are already falling off, 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 July was conducted from 456 -
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 purchasing.
Although other economic indica-
tors 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-
depce for the year. The value of
the index is in comparing
changes over time rather: than
looking at an isolated month.


produces this radiation," said co-
author Neil Gehrels of Goddard.
The theory is that hidden
, blapk holes, which scientists call
Compton-thick objects, are-
responsible for the peak at
30,000 electron volts. These X-
rays are so energetic that they
would penetrate een the most
dust-enshrouded black holes yet
remain beyond the range of pow-
erful lower-energy X-ray obser-
vatories such as Chandra. :
High-energy light in general
is harder to focus than optical
and lower-energy (longer-wave-
length) forms of light. As a
result, INTEGRAL doesn't have .
the resolution to make sharp
images like Chandra and Hubble
can.
"Basically, the higher you
go in energy, the harder it is to
detect faint sources," said Chris
Shrader of Goddard, another co-
author. "This is why no hard X-
ray mission has been able to
study many individual objects in
the distant universe. That would
require a next-generation tele-
scope. But INTEGRAL is now
the first to resolve the local uni-
verse."
INTEGRAL can obtain an
unbiased count of black holes in
the local universe by virtue of
seeing even those that are hid-
den. Of all the black hole galax-
ies that' INTEGRAL detected---
that is, galaxies with supermas-
sive black holes in their cores
actively accreting gas---about 40
percent were unobscured black
hole galaxies, called Seyfert 1
galaxies. About 50 percent were
somewhat obscured black hole
galaxies called Seyfert 2 galax-
ies. And less than 10 percent
were the heavily shrouded
"Compton thick" variety.
This implies that if hidden
black holes make up the bulk of
the X-ray background, they
aren't local. Why? One. reason
could be that, in the modern local
universe, these black holes have
had time to blow away the gas
and dust that once enshrouded
them, leaving them unobscured.
This liberation of gas and dust
would have its consequences; it
would blow away to influence
star and galaxy formation else-
where.
"This is just the tip of the
iceberg," Beckmann said. "In a
few more months we will have a
larger survey completed with the
Swift mission."

Time to ready your boat for

a storm is now, UF

researcher says


By Mickie Anderson
UF IFAS
Boat owners should prepare
for a hurricane now, not when a
storm is bearing down on them,
a University of Florida Sea
Grant specialist warns.
Bob Wasno, based in Fort
Myers with the UF-affiliated
coastal research and education
program, reminds boat owners
that preparation is imperative
and procrastination can be dan-
gerous.
"Each and every boat is
going to be a little different," he
said. "And there's a whole
checklist of things that need to
be done."
First on that list: Decide
where to put your boat when a
storm is on the way.
Boats that are stored ashore
are much more likely to escape
damage than those stored in the
water, officials say.
"It's not necessarily the
safest place when you're in a
marina with 50 other boats.
Chances are that one of them is
not going to be tied down right,"
he said.
And just one loose boat can
damage many others, Wasno
said.
If your boat is on land, the
best place is inside a garage. If
that's not feasible, parking the
boat and trailer away from trees
but close to a building is a good
bet.
Let some air out of the trail-
er tires and block the wheels so it
won't roll. Wooden blocks
should be placed between the
trailer's frame and springs, and
the boat filled no more than
halfway with water. Then lash
the boat to the ground at all four
corners.
For boats kept at a marina,
preparations are even trickier.
That's why Leif Lustig,
dockmaster at the Fort Myers
Yacht Basin, says he and his
staff .begin renlinding their
patrons many-pof therm people
who live on their, boats early in

staff present a time to read. This
program is offered every second
and fourth Thursday of the
month.
This week features Eliza


the season to start preparing.
Though procrastination is
human, Lustig says they do their
best to counter it.
"I think that's pretty much
the way people think. But I think
we've got it a little more in their
minds to get ready here," he
said. "And if we can keep any-
body's insurance premiums
down, the better off we all are."
One of the most important
things boat owners forget is to
have duplicate copies of owner-
ship paperwork, such as the
boat's registration, stored some-
place other than on the boat,
where it can easily be damaged,
Lustig said.
"Mail it to your mother in
Paducah, I don't care, just have
it someplace off the boat," he
said.
Among their other recom-
mendations:
Remove any gear, such as
canvas tops, that can act as a sail.
Anything on deck that
can't be removed, such as chairs,
cushions or grills, should be
lashed.
Dock lines should be dou-
bled, at a minimum, and should
be as long as possible to accom-
modate storm surge.
You'll need chafing gear at
all rub points. There are-ready-
made types of chafe protection,
or garden hose is another option.
In a pinch, using duct tape to
bind heavy canvas or denim to
the lines can.work.
Make sure bilge pumps
work.
If the boat is in a slip, it's
best to tie it so that it's in the
middle, rather than close to the
dock, to keep' the boat from
banging into the dock.
When the boat is secure
and the storm is imminent, head
for higher ground. Trying to ride
out a storm on a boat is a terrible
idea.
If you're a part-time resi-
dent, make sure there is a perma-
nent resident who can act as
your lbat's caretaker '

Commissioner Bronson

announces a major

addition to the Florida

Agricultural Museum


Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson announced Tuesday
that five historic structures from
a citrus complex in DeLeon
Springs have been moved 50
miles to the Florida Agricultural
Museum grounds in northeast
Flagler County, which is located
at the corer of Old Kings Road
and U.S. Highway 1. The build-
ings were part of the. Strawn
Historic Agricultural District
and on the National Register of
Historic Places.
The five buildings include a
mule bar, wagon barn, granary,
and two small residences for
seasonal laborers. They were
constructed from 1902-1942 by
the Strawn Company as part of
one of Florida's largest citrus
operations. The citrus company
was in operation from the late
1980s until 1983. For more than
twenty years, the buildings sat
vacant.
David Strawn, the owner of
the buildings, decided to sell the
property on which they were
located. The buildings were
scheduled for demolition when
Strawn decided to donate them
to the Florida Agricultural
Museum. Fortunately, the muse-
um had the resources to move
the historic structures during
May, National Historic
.Preservation month. .
Bronson said that $350,100
in grant .funding has been.
secured from the Division of


Historic Resources to stabilize
and restore the buildings on the
museum grounds. After the
restoration of these buildings is
complete, the public will be able
to visit this historic citrus opera-
tion as well as other historic
buildings on the Museum's
property, including Florida's
Governor Caldwell's dairy barn.
"Historic landmarks are the
cornerstones of a community's
heritage," Bronson said. "An
important part of Florida's agri-
cultural heritage has been pre-
served in these tangible
reminders of our citrus industry.
These buildings represent
Florida farm life and business
during the early 20th century.
Their preservation will help edu-
cate visitors to the Florida
Agricultural Museum about the
importance of our state's history
and the continued importance of
agriculture in Florida's econo-
my."
The buildings will ,,be
restored as part of a 39,000-
square-foot living history exhib-
it complete with livestock, farm
implements, and wagons. The
Strawn exhibit will serve as a
unique example of an interesting
period in Florida's history: the
transition from horse, mule, and
oxen power to mechanical forms
of energy. The exhibit is impbr-
tant to Florida history because
agriculture was and is a critical
part of the state's past and pre-
sent.


NIDA announces recommendations to treat drug

abusers, save money and reduce crime


The National Institute on
Drug Abuse (NIDA), National
Institutes of Health, Monday
released a landmark scientific
report showing that effective
treatment of drug, abuse and
addiction can save communities
money and reduce crime.
Principles of Drug Abuse
Treatment for Criminal Justice
Populations outlines some of the
proven components for success-
ful treatment of drug abusers
who have entered the criminal
justice system,' leading to. lower
rates of drug abuse and criminal
activity.
"This report is part of our
ongoing commitment to using
scientific research to pro% ide
solutions to some of the most
complex public health and safety
issues of our Lime." said Elias A.
Zerhouni, M.D., NIH Director.
"Not only does it offer research-
based ,treatment solutions to
judges and communities, it also
provides information.on how the
criminal justice system can help
reduce the spread of HIV/AIDS,
hepatitis and other infectious
diseases among drug abusing
offenders all critically' impor-
tant issues in today's society."
Untreated substance abuse
adds significant costs to commu-
nities, including violent and
property crimes, prison expens-
es, court and criminal costs,
emergency room visits, child
abuse and neglect, lost child sup-
port, foster care and welfare
costs, reduced productivity,
unemployment, and victimiza-


tion. The cost to society of drug
abuse in the year 2002 was $181
billion $107 billion associated
with drug-related crime.
"We know what works to
treat addiction, based on our sci-
entific knowledge of the cogni-
tive, behavioral, and physiologi-
cal characteristics of. addicts,"
said Dr.. Nora Volkow, NIDA
Director. "The principles of drug
abuse treatment that we are
releasing today represent the
translation of research into prac-
tice. They are powerful and prac-
tical tools that will allow com-
munities to choose between
ongoing treatment or ongoing
Crimee"
Principles of Drug Abuse
Treatment for Criminal Justice
Populations offers 13 principles
based on a review of the scientif-
ic literature on drug abuse treat-
ment and criminal behavior. The
principles include an acknowl-
edgement that, drug addiction is a
brain disease that affects behav-
ior; that recovery requires effec-
tive individualized treatment that
might include medication; and
that continuity of care is essen-
tial for drug abusers re-entering
the community after a period of
incarceration.
."Detox alone in jail or
prison is not treatment," said
Volkow. "Without proven treat-
ment and therapeutic follow-up
in a community setting, addicted
offenders'are at a high risk of
relapse despite a long period of
forced sobriety," she added.
"These principles also. apply to


cpurt-rhandated treatment inter-
ventions that replace incarcera-
tion with community programs."'
It is estimated that 70 per-
cent of individuals in state pris-
ons and local jails have abused
drugs regularly, compared to
approximately 9 percent of the
general population. Studies show
that treatment cuts drug, abuse in
half, reduces criminal activity up
to 80 percent and reduces arrests
up to 64 percent. However,
fewer than one-fifth of these
offenders receive treatment.
Treatment not only lowers.
recidivism rates, it is also cost-
effective. It is estimated that for
every dollar spent on addiction
treatment programs, there is a $4
to $7 reduction .in the cost of
drug-related crimes. With some
outpatient programs, total sav-
ings can exceed costs by a ratio
of 12:1.
The failure to treat addicts
in 'the criminal justice .system
contributes to a continuous cycle
of substance abuse and crime. In
1999, 1.5 million minor children
- most under the age of 10 had
a parent in prison. Fifty-eight
percent of these imprisoned par-
ents used drugs in the month
before their offense. Children of
addicted parents are four times
more likely to become addicted
if they choose to use drugs or
alcohol, and many will also enter
the criminal justice system.
The NIDA report was
released'Monday by Dr. Volkow
at an event in Chicago that high-
lighted innovative substance


abuse programs underway in the
Cook County jail system. These
programs include a NIDA-spon-
sored project that trains judges
about the neuroscience ofaddic-
tion and treatment so they can be
better prepared to place addicted
defendants in adequate treatment
environments. Dr. Volkow was
joined by Chicago Mayor
Richard Daley, andCook County
Chief Judge Timothy Evans,
who have supported treatment
programs for drug abusing
offenders. Also attending was
Melody M. Heaps, President of
Treatment Alternatives for Safe
Communities (TASC), a not-for-
profit organization that provides
treatment management programs
and services. Ms. Heaps intro-
duced several former drug
abusers with prior involvement
in the :criminal justice system
whose lives have dramatically
changed because of adequate
treatment programs.
In addition to outlining
treatment principles for criminal
justice populations, NIDA's pub-
lication includes answers to fre-
quently asked questions about
addiction as a chronic disease,
co-occurring mental, emotional
and environmental conditions
that make relapse likely upon
return to society, recommenda-
tions for the components of ade-
quate treatment programs, cost-
effectiveness of treatment, and
the role of medication in treating
offenders with substance abuse.

NOAA forecasts larger than

normal "dead zone" for

Gulf Of Mexico this

summer


A team of scientists from
the. NOAA National Centers for
Coastal Ocean Science,
Louisiana Universities Marine
Consortium and Louisiana State
University is forecasting that the
"Dead Zone" off'the coast of
Louisiana and Texas this sum-
mer will be larger than the aver-
age size since 1990.
This NOAA supported
modeling effort, led by Eugene
Turner, Ph.D., of LSU, predicts
this summer's "Dead Zone" will
be 6,700 square miles, an area
the half the size of the state of
Maryland. Since 1990 the aver-
age annual hypoxia-affected
area has been approximately
4,800 square miles. The forecast
is based on nitrate loads from the
Mississippi and Atchafalaya
rivers in May and incorporates
the previous year's load to the
system. The nitrogen data are
provided by the U.S. Geological
Survey. NOAA funds research
cruises to track development of
hypoxia.
The "Dead Zone" is an area
in the Gulf of Mexico where sea-
sonal oxygen levels drop too low
to support most life in bottom
and near-bottom waters. It is
caused by a seasonal change
where algal growth, stimulated
by input of nutrients such as
nitrogen and phosphorus from
the Mississippi and Atchafalaya
rivers, settles and decays in the
bottom waters. The decaying
algae consume oxygen faster
than it can be replenished from
the surface, leading to decreased
levels of dissolved oxygen.
There are multiple models
of the size of the hypoxic zone
that are useful in evaluating the'
influence of nitrogen load and
variations in ocean currents on
the size of the "Dead Zone."
These models do not always pro-
duce similar results, and model
improvement is one focus of
ongoing research. Over the past
four years, NOAA and its collab-
orators have compared two inde-


pendent models. The LSU model
is the most accurate model based
on past performance, but it is
still in the experimental stages.
Additional research for model
improvement is required before
this annual prediction can
become an operational forecast.
"We are anticipating a larger
hypoxic .zone this summer
because the nitrate loading this
May, a critical month influenc-
ing the size of the area,.is higher
than last year," said Turner,
explaining the NOAA forecast.
"The result is that we will have
some additional key information
about the relative contribution of
stratification and nutrient con-
centrations in different years
which should help us better
understand the causes behind
this annual event."
"This prediction is an exam-
ple of the ecological forecasting
capabilities of NOAA and its
partners," said David Whitall,
Ph.D., a NOAA scientist
involved in the project. "We
believe such forecasts will
become important tools for
coastal managers in the coming
years."
Research indicates that
nearly tripling the nitrogen load
into the Gulf over the past 50
years has led to the heightened
Gulf of Mexico hypoxia prob-
lem. The scientists say their
research will improve assess-
ments of hypoxic effects under
various Gulf Coast oceano-
graphic conditions.
These research, observa-
tional and modeling studies are
part of a larger NOAA sponsored
effort to develop a fundamental
understanding of the northern
Gulf of Mexico ecosystem with
a focus on the causes and effects
of the hypoxic zone over the
Louisiana continental shelf and
the prediction of its future extent
and impacts to ecologically and
commercially important aquatic
species.
