Rep. Frank Farkas and Rep. Kim Berfield, the Republican candidates for the District 16 seat in the '
'Florida Senate, discussed their platforms during a candidate forum last Thursday at the Feather Sound
Country Club in Clearwater. The winner of the September 5th primary election will face Charlie Justice in
November's general election. All three candidates are current members of the state House.


By Carter Chase
Staff Writer
The three candidates vying
for the District 16 seat in the
Florida Senate were given a.
chance to growl last Thursday
during a candidate forum hosted
by the Suncoast Tiger Bay Club.
Charlie Justice. a Democrat,
and Republicans Frank Farkas
and Kim Belfield. all of whom
are members of the state House,
rattled off parts of their agendas,
but remained relatively tame in
regards to each .other, during
their get-together in front of a
crowd bf more than 100 at the
Feather Sound Country Club in
Clearwater.
Rather than slinging mud,
Berfield and Farkas, who will
face-off in the September
Republican primary, simply
chose to talk about the issues
that concern them the most..
"I care very deeply about
the welfare and safety of our
children," said Berfield. "We
shouldn't have children who are
in fear."
She also stressed the impor-.
tatice of seeing to it that older
people are given the support they
need.
"The one thing I've heard


time and time again...is we have
to find a way to help the elderly
in the community,"' said
Berfield. "Never ever, draw the
line from letting them receive
the tests and medical attention
they need."
Farkas talked about his.
desire for property tax relief and
ta\ lefornm.
"People right now are cry-
ing," said Farkas. "The cities,
those are the ones the burden
needs to be put on.."
Farkas mentioned that he
and his opponents are all con-
cerned about a declining gradua-
~ion rate
"Make sure programs are
exactly what (students) are look-
ing for," said Farkas. ,
In regards to education,
Justice said he didn't approve of
the way the Florida
Conmpreihensi e Assessmrent Test
(FCAT) is used, asserting that it
is "hammering students and our
schools." .
In addition to talk of
improving the state's education
s\steim. Justice pointed out
another issue that he believes
needs immediate attention.
"The number one issue peo-
ple want to talk about is the one
thing the Florida Senate has


failed to solve and that's sky-
rocketing home insurance rates,"
said Justice.
Beifield, Farkas and Justice
are seeking to replace state Sen.
Jim Sebesta, R-St. Petersburg,
whose tenure is ending after two
terms due to term limits.
All three candidates hale
been in the state House for at
least six yeats.
The competition between
Justice and whoever wins the
,Republican primary will mark
the first time in modem history
that tmo members of the-House
\\1il face-off in the general elec-
uon.
Participating in what is
regarded by many in the political
arena as the most competitive
legislative race, the;three candi-
dates each made statements last
week in an attempt to appeal to
voters.
"I'm not afraid of making
hard decisions," said Berfield.
"I'm a legislator who believes in
bold actions."
Farkas said, "I want to be
your mighty oak in the Senate,"
and Justice said his candidacy is
based on the "American wa)"
and the belief that "tomorrow is
better than today."

Sand Key Beach

renourishment

project completed


The Sand Key Beach
Renourishment project that
began on November 2005 was
completed in North Redington
Beach on July 30.
After 10 months of con-
struction, almost nine miles of
beaches have received nearly 1.7'
million cubic yards of sand. The
project renourished coastlines in
the communities of Sand Key
(Clearwater), Belleair Beach,
Indian Rocks Beach, Indian
Shores, Redington Shores, and
North Redington Beach. (The
project does not include Belleair
Shores due to the lack of public
access.) Sand was barged in
from.Egmont Shoals just off-
shore of the. entrance to Tampa
Bay and north of Egmont Key..
The white, fine, sugary sand
will provide a buffer from storm
energy during, future storm
events.
"The main purpose of beach
nourishment is to protect the
beach communities from dam-


*age during storms," said Dr.
Nicole Elko, Pinellas County
coastal management coordina-
tor. "These beaches are ready for
the 2006 hurricane season, as
well as the upcoming tourist sea-
son."
The beach project was com-
pleted at a cost of about $40 mil-
lion, at no cost to taxpayers.
Funds come from the 2 percent
bed tax for tourists and visitors.
Beach renourishment is a coor-
dinated effort between'the
Pinellas County Department of
Environmental Management, the
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers
and the Florida Department of
Environmental Protection. The
contractor was. Norfolk
Dredging Company.
Nourishment crews will
next repair a stretch of beach in
Indian Rocks Beach that was
damaged by Tropical Storm
Alberto, then renourishment will
begin on the shores of Treasure
Island and St. Pete Beach.


A night to unite


against crime


McGruff the Crime Dog makes a friend Tuesday during a
celebration of the National Night Out against crime in the North
Kenwood neighborhood of St. Petersburg. Dozens of residents from
the neighborhood that comprises the area from 34th Street to 1-275
between 9th and 22nd Avenues North gathered to support the police
and the fight against crime.

Attorney General awards

more than $24 million for

crime victims
Attorney General Charlie Crist last Thursday announced that
his office has awarded more than $24.3 million for grants to private
and public agencies to help crime victims throughout Florida. The
funds, provided through the federal Victims of Crime Act (VOCA),
will provide direct services to help victims stabilize their lives.
VOCA grants are issued annually, and the latest round of
awards will assist victims in each of Florida's 20 judicial circuits, as
well as participants in several statewide initiatives.
"Too often, innocent crime victims have nowhere else to turn
for help. These grants can provide a lifeline for those who, through
no fault of their own, have become the victim of crime," said Crist.
"I am pleased that we can offer hope and comfort to victims in their
time of need."
The Attorney General's Office has already awarded 232 grants
totaling $23,963,693, and another $355,218 has been obligated to
other programs and will soon be formally awarded. Grants range
from a high of $615,868 to the Florida Department of Health for ser-
vices to child abuse victims statewide to a low of $16,793 to the
Pembroke Pines Police Department. When all awards have been
finalized, the statewide total will be $24,318,911.
The Victims of Crime Act grants will be used for a wide vari-
ety of programs for victims and survivors of domestic violence, sex-
ual assault, child abuse, drunk driving, murder and other crimes.
The grants will fund such activities as domestic violence centers,
abuse shelters, sexual assault and child abuse programs and family
counseling services. Many of the grants will be used by law enforce-
ment agencies and state attorney's offices to operate local victim
services programs.
The Attorney General's Office administers the grants for the
state. The Victims of Crime Act was enacted in 1984 to provide fed-
eral funding to assist state, local and private nonprofit agencies in
providing.direct services to crime victims, The U.S. Department of
Justice provides' VOCA money to the states, derived from fines,
penalty assessments and bond forfeitures from convicted federal
offenders.
Since its inception more than two decades ago, VOCA has pro-
vided $218,148,000 to Florida for victim assistance and another
$87,446,000 for crime compensation, bringing the state a total of
$305,594,000 to help victims of crime.

Scientists develop new,

molecular approach to

early cancer detection


By Aaron Hoover
UF
Scientists have pioneered a
new approach to detecting can-
cer cells, one that could eventu-
ally allow doctors to discover
nany malignancies earlier than


gerprint that can distinguish it
from healthy tissue. But attempts
to target cells via these finger-
prints have largely proved futile
because there are few molecular
tools to recognize the finger-
prints. The UF team sought to
create these tools in the form of

g that it opens the door to the first
systematic approach to diagnos-
S ing cancer at the molecular level.
I- Not only that, but what they
describe as a potentially new
Af cancer probe may one day offer
;s abetter method of targeting indi-
vidual cancer cells with drug
therapies, reducing side effects
from chemotherapy treatments
that today affect both. healthy
and sickly cells.
"We can, use this probe to
recognize cancer cells," poten-
tially discovering cancer earlier
than often occurs today, said
Dihua Shanigguan, a UF post-
doctoral associate in .chemistry
and the first author ,on a paper
about the approach that appears
today in the online edition of the
SProceedings of the National
SAcademy of Sciences.
Contrary to popular percep-
* tion, pathologists today diagnose
the vast majority of cancers
Based on the shape or other char-
acteristics of tumor tissue or dis-
eased cells, said Ying Li, one of
nine UF faculty members and
Graduate student co-authors of
the paper. That's a problem
because it often means that can-
cers may already be advanced
When detected.
"Normally, definitive diag-
nosis of cancer requires a visual
examination of the tumor, which
is an invasive and time-consum-
ing process," explained Weihong
Tan, a UF professor of chemistry
and lead author of the paper.
"Most importantly, this process
is not suitable for early detec-
1 tion, when the cancer is at its
most treatable."
Clinicians can sometimes
use antibodies, proteins that rec-
Sognize and fight bodily intrud-
ers, to identify different types of
Cancer. That's the case, for
Example, with the prostate-spe-
p cific antigen test for prostate
Cancer. Antibodies are preferable
to diagnosis by appearance
because they are consistent and
Accurate, but they are only avail-
able for a selected few cancers,
SLi said.
Tan, a member of the UF
Hands Cancer Center and the
UF Genetics Institute, said that
scientists know that cancer tis-


to the approach is it does not
require prior knowledge of can-
cer indicators, Tan said.
"Using the cell-based
aptamer selection strategy, we
can generate aptamers which can
specifically recognize any kind
of cells without prior knowledge
of molecular changes associated
with the'disease," he said.
In experiments, the
researchers showed they could
successfully design sets of
aptamers that would recognize
leukemia cells that had been
mixed in with normal bone mar-
row cells. The aptamers also
successfully distinguished
leukemia T-cells from lym-
phoma B-cells. Both results indi-
cate that the aptamer method
could be used to identify many
different types of cancer,
researchers said.
Clinicians using such mole-
'cular probes should be able to:
"find cancer in a much earlier
stage when the tumors are much
smaller," enabling, doctors to
begin treatment earlier, Li said.
Richard Zare, a professor
and chairman of the Stanford
University department of chem-
istry, said he is "hugely
impressed" by the findings
reported in the PNAS paper.
"It represents a most clever,
new approach to using the differ-
ences at the molecular level
between any two types of cells
for the identification of molecu-
lar signatures on the surface of
targeted cells," he said. "I can
easily imagine that it will have a
most significant impact on
developing therapies for disease
states.""'
The researchers are now
testing the approach on lung
cancer cells, liver cancer cells
and cells infected by viruses,
said UF chemistry post doctoral
associate Zhiwen Tang. The
paper's other authors are Zehui
Charles Cao, William Chen,
Prabodhika Mallikaratchy,
Kwame Sefah and Chaoyong
James Yang. The work has been
funded with grants from the
National Institutes of Health, the
National Science Foundation
and with a seed grant from the
office of the UF Vice President

City of Clearwater's
wastewater treatment plants
receive three awards
The city's three Advanced Wastewater
Treatment Facilities (AWTF) were selected
to receive the Gold Peak Performance
Award. The National Association of Clean
Water Agencies (NACWA) recognizes pub-
lic wastewater treatment facilities for their
outstanding compliance records.
The Peak Performance Awards honor
treatment plants that have achieved 100 per-
cent compliance with their National
Pollutant Discharge Elimination System,
(NPDES) permit for the entire 2005 calendar
year. This is'the second year in a row that all
of Clearwater's plants have been recognized
for 100 percent compliance.
"I am proud of all the efforts taken by
the Water Pollution Control staff to ensure
we attained full compliance with our waste-
water plants," said John Milligan,
Clearwater's Water Pollution Control
Superintendent. "Wastewater is a vital com-)
ponent to a city's infrastructure and often
goes unnoticed. This award is the result of
years of dedicated work, superior knowledge
and teamwork."
The Water Pollution Control Division of
Public Utilities operates Clearwater's three
-wastewater treatment plants. The plants take
raw sewage and treat it to high standards for
reuse as reclaimed water. Use of reclaimed
water reduces our need to irrigate with high-
ly valued drinking water.
"Clearwater Public Utilities is an out-
standing example ot en ironmental efforts,"!
'said Ken Kirk, NACWA Executi\ e Director.
"NACWA is honored to showcase the
achievements of Clearwater and our nation's
public wastewater utilities through the Peak
Performance Awards Program."
For more information on Clearwater's
water quality efforts, contact John Milligan
at 562-4960 or visit myclearwater.com

and will benefit: The Homeless Emergency
Project, Inc. (HEP) of Clearwater, FL, the

The HEP is the largest and most com-
prehensive provider of housing and support
services for the homeless of Pinellas County
serving over 55,000 meals in 2005.
"Events such as the Fashions with Flair
Fundraiser are a wonderful example of what
is right with our community. We are pleased
to be associated with a group dedicated to
the betterment of the less fortunate in the
Tampa Bay area," commented Executive
Director Barbara Green.
Dr. Charles L. Kennedy, his wife
Yolanda and their daughter Jimirra opened

ATTACHMENT "A" FOR DISCRETIONARY PUBLICATION
OF NOTICE OF DETERMINATION OF QUALIFICATION
FOR AN EXEMPTION
DEP File No.: 52-0267182-001
County: Pinellas

In the Matter of an Application
for a Determination of Qualification
for an Exemption by:
Pinellas Marina, LLC
1112 Pinehurst Road
Dunedin, FL'34698

The Department of Environmental Protection gives notice
that it has received a request for authorization to repair and
replace 24,044 square feet of decking within an existing marina.
and remove 3 finger piers and two mooring piles, totaling 358
square feet, at 343 & 345 Caus-,,ay Blvd., Dunedin, by Pinellas
Marina, LLC. The Department has determined that the project
qualifies for an exemption established under 40D-4.051(8)(h),
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 are 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 exten-
sion 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 dead-
line. 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 fail-
ure 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

gs recently published in the

The goal is to discover the
molecular glitch that causes the
ceptor to malfunction so

tions, keeping the hunger-signal-
ing pathway running smoothly,
Haskell-Luevano said.
"If you administer these
compounds, it's a potential anti-
obesity agent because you,feel
full," Haskell-Ltevano said. "On
the other hand, if you have can-
cer or wasting disease, if you
administer an antagonist that
blocks or turns off the system,
then you want to eat or you feel
hungry.
"It directly controls the
desire to eat."
About 30 percent of adults
and 16 percent of children in the
United States are' overweight,
according to the Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention.
Only a fraction of these people
have genetic conditions or muta-
tions that are linked to obesity,
but researchers say studying
genetic obesity can also help
uncover clues to treating the
nation's growing weight prob:
lem.
"There are so many factors
that come into play," Haskell-
Luevano said. "It's a very sim-
plistic approach to say what we
study in a dish (completely
explains) why a person is obese.
At the same time, taking it down
to the simplest level is how you


The melanocortin-4 recep-
tor's link to obesity was first
reported in 1997 when scientists
discovered that a mouse missing
the protein that turns on the
receptor was obese, ate more
than other mice and had devel-
oped type 2 diabetes.
-Scientists then made a con-
nection in humans, discovering
that some morbidly obese chil-
dren and adults had mutations in
the receptor at the DNA level.
Since then, about 60 separate
mutations have been found,
Haskell-Luevano said.
"Understanding this path-
way is really important to under-
standing obesity," said Dr. Sadaf
Farooqi, a Wellcome Trust clini-
cian scientist fellow at
Cambridge University who was
part of a team of British scien-
tists who made the connection
between the melanocortin mal-
function and obesity in humans.
"(This study) provides more
detail and it starts to put some of
the pieces of-the puzzle together.
It's an important part of getting
to the next step."
UF researchers spent three
years collecting data from cells,
studying how mutated receptor
cells reacted to the molecules
that normally stimulate the body


to eat or stop eating, said Dr.
Zhimin Xiang, a UF biological
scientist who led the experiment.
Now, researchers are preparing
to study mice that have been
injected with the same genetic
mutations they have been
observing in a dish, to see if
these defects cause the animals
to become obese, Xiang said.
UF scientists are also trying
to understand why exercise
keeps the hunger-signaling sys-
tem working. Emerging evi-
dence shows that running on a
wheel seems to keep
melanocortin-4 receptor defi-
cient mice from becoming obese
and diabetic, Haskell-Luevano
said.
But until scientists can find
a way to treat the problem,
Haskell-Luevano encourages
people to be a little less judg-
mental of obese children and
adults, who may be struggling
with a problem they cannot con-
trol.
S "Genetics is a very strong
component of obesity," she said.
"As a scientist and a researcher,
what I like to focus on is seeing
if we can design some molecule
or drug that can fix this."

Chemical in many air fresheners may


reduce lung function


New research shows that a
chemical compound found in
many air fresheners, toilet bowl
cleaners, mothballs and other
deodorizing products, may be
harmful to the lungs. Human
population studies at the
National Institute of
Environmental Health Sciences
(NIEHS), a part of the National
Institutes of Health, found that
exposure to a volatile organic
compound (VOC), called 1,4
dichlorobenzene (1,4 DCB) may
cause modest reductions in lung
function.
"Even a small reduction in
lung function may indicate some
harm to the lungs," said NIEHS
researcher Stephanie London,


M.D., lead investigator on the
study. "The best way to protect
yourself, especially children who
may have asthma or other respi-
ratory illnesses, is to reduce the
use of products and materials
that contain these compounds."
The researchers examined
the relationship between blood
concentrations of 11 common
volatile organic compounds and
lung function measures in a rep-
resentative sample of 953 adults.
VOCs are a diverse set of com-
pounds emitted as gases from
thousands of commonly used
products, including tobacco
smoke, pesticides, paints, and
cleaning products. VOCs are
also released through automotive


exhaust. The researchers found
that of the common VOCs ana-
lyzed, which included benzene,
styrene, toluene, and acetone,
only the compound 1,4 DCB was
associated with reduced- pul-
monary function and this effect
was seen even after careful
adjustment for smoking, The
researchers found that 96 percent
of the population samples had
detectable 1,4 DCB blood con-
centration levels. 'African
Americans had the highest expo-
sure levels and non-Hispanic
whites the lowest.
This particular VOC, 1,4
DCB, is a white solid compound
with a distinctive aroma, similar
to mothballs. It is typically used


primarily as a space deodorant in
products such as room deodoriz-
ers, urinal and toilet bowl blocks,
and as an insecticide fumigant
for moth control.
"Because people spend so
much time indoors where these
products are used, it's important
that we understand the effects
that even low levels might have
on the respiratory system," said
Leslie Elliott, Ph.D. a researcher
on the NIEHS-funded study.
"There has been very little
research on the health effects of
this articularr compound in non-
occupational settings."

Infielder B.J. Upton, the number two pick overall in the 2002 MLB
Draft, was called up from Triple A Durham this week after Ty
Wigginton went down with with a broken hand. He went 2 for 8 in
his first two games against the Detroit Tigers.


The Tampa Bay Devil Rays
have acquired a pair of minor
leaguer prospects, infielder Joel
Guzman and outfielder Sergio
Pedroza, from the Los Angeles
Dodgers in exchange for short-
stop Julio Lugo, it was
announced Monday.,
In addition, the Rays have
recalled infielders B.J. Upton
and Ben Zobrist from AAA'
Durham. They will join the team
on Tuesday.
Guzman, 21, batted .297
(94-for-317) with 16 doubles,
two triples, 11 home runs and 55
RBI in 85 games at first base,
third base, left field and, desig-
nated hitter with AAA Las Vegas
this season.
Originally signed by the
Dodgers as a fidii- iifted free
agent at the age of 16 on July 2,
2001, Guzman was named the
top prospect in the Dodgers
organization entering 2005 by
Baseball America and Los
Angeles' third best prospect, and
26th overall, entering this sea-
son. The publication also tabbed
him as the best Major League
prospect among 2004 minor
league shortstops and the organi-
zation's best power hitter. He
was also selected as the organi-
zation's Minor League Player of
the Year in 2004.
Pedroza, 22, batted .267
(95-for-356) with 26 doubles, 24
home runs, 84 RBI and 81 walks
in 102 games combined at sin-
gle-A Columbus of the South
Atlantic League and single-A
Vero Beach of the Florida State
League. His home runs are tied
for' fifth most in the minor
leagues and led the Dodgers
organization while his walks are
tied for second most in the
minors.
The left-handed hitting out-


fielder was originally selected
by Los Angeles in the, third
round of the 2005 June Draft.
Lugo, 30, was leading the
Rays in hitting this season at
.308 with 12 home runs, six
more than all of last year and
three shy of his career high set in
2003 with Tampa Bay. Since the
start 2004, Lugo has compiled
92 doubles, fourth most among
Major League shortstops while
his 78 stolen bases are tops
among all American League
shortstops over the span. He was
drafted in the 43rd round by the
Astros in 1994, the lowest-round
pick to come up through
Houston's system and reach the
majors.
Upton, 21, batted .269 with
18 doubles, four triples, eight
home runs, a team-high 65 walks
and 41 RBI in 106 games with
the Bulls. He has also collected a
league-high 46 stolen bases, tops
in the International League and
tied for sixth overall in the
minors. The number two overall
pick in the 2002 draft, Upton
became the youngest Ray ever
when he joined the club in Aug.
2004 at age 19. He bated .258 in
45 games for the Rays for, the
remainder of the season. with
eight doubles, two triples and,
four home runs.
Zobrist, 25, will be making
his major league debut. He bat-
ted .304 (21-for-69) in 18 games
at Durham since he was acquired
from Houston on July 12 along
with right-handed pitcher Mitch
Talbot in exchange for Aubrey
Huff and cash. He began the sea-
son with AA Corpus Christi
leading the team with 25 doubles
and six-triples in 82 games and
was named a Texas League All-
Star.


Bronson reminds

college bound students

to learn about

landlord/tenant law


Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson is urging students, their
parents and others who may be
renting apartments or houses at
the end of the summer to review
their rights and responsibilities
as tenants. Many college bound
students will be renting for the
first time this fall and Bronson
says they can avoid the pitfalls if
they do some research in
advance.
"Many college students and
their parents are focusing on get-
ting settled and may not pay
enough attention to the details of
the lease," Bronson said. "But
that may end up costing them
and creating headaches down the
road. It is much better to know
exactly what you are getting into
before signing a lease."
First and foremost, people
need to know there is no grace
period for canceling a lease so
they need to understand all the
terms of the contract BEFORE
they sign. A prospective renter
should walk through the premis-
es to identify any preexisting
damage or problems that should
be fixed, taking pictures and
notes of any questionable condi-
tions. They should be sure an
agreement to fix any problems is
spelled out in the lease. State
law requires that the landlord
comply with housing and health
codes, keep the unit in good
repair and keep the plumbing in
good working order.


However, tenants have
responsibilities as well. The law
says they must also comply with
housing and health codes, keep
the unit clean and sanitary, not
destroy or damage any part of
the premises, not act in a manner
which disturbs the tenant's
neighbors and remove garbage
from the dwelling.
Bronson says one of the
biggest problems involves multi-
ple names on a lease, a common
practice with college students. If
any of the tenants leave, the oth-
ers will be held liable for his or
her portion of the rent. In addi-
tion, if a renter has roommates
who are not on the lease, the
renter is held liable for the entire
amount.
Chapter 83 of the Florida
Statutes tells exactly what can be
done if either party does not
comply with the requirements.
The law spells out when rent can
be withheld, under what condi-
tions a tenant can be evicted and
requires that notices to and from
a landlord must be in writing.
There are also specific time peri-
ods established to resolve com-
plaints.
The Department has a
detailed brochure on the land-
lord/tenant law on its Division of
Consumer Services website at

The NOAA National
Centers for Coastal Ocean
Sciences reports that the non-
native aquarium fish, Red Sea
Bannerfish, has been found liv-
ing on Paul's Reef off Palm
Beach. Fla.
The Red Sea Bannerfish
(Heniochus intermedius) is
native to the Red Sea in the
Middle East, but is sold in the
U.S. as a saltwater aquarium
fish. It is one of several exotic
'aquarium fish species that have
been photographed or captured
in recent years living on reefs off
southern Florida. Although this
fish is not harmful to humans, it
could. interfere with the food
web and affect species of eco-
nomic value if it becomes a
dominant species on the reef.
NOAA has received numer-
ous reports that aquaritim fish
ha\e been released from person-
al aquaria into Florida waters.
NOAA scientists are analyzing
the impact of such. releases on
native ecosystems and fisheries.
Thus far, they have determined
that the Red Sea Bannerfish
could pose a danger because of
its wide dietary 'habits, which
could allow the fish to survive
and multiply. Scientists are
assessing the risk of the


Bannerfish altering the ecologi-
cal balance of invaded ecosys-
tems using information from tax-
onomic studies and monitoring.
S "The President's Ocean
Action Plan details how impor-
tant education oq aquatic inva-
sive species is in increasing pub-
lic awareness about the impor-
tance of prevention," said retired
Navy Vice Admiral Conrad C.
Lautenbacher, Ph.D., undersec-.
retary of commerce for oceans
and atmosphere and NOAA
administrator. "Non-native
plants and animals, including
those in the aquarium trade, can
cause irreparable harm to: the
environment and can damage
recreational and commercial
tses of our aquatic resources. A
specific recommendation of the
Ocean Action Plan is support of
the Habitattitude partnership,
which promotes a cooperative
conservation approach to pre-
venting further introductions of
non-native species into our
waterways.
Once a non-native species
becomes established in the sea
and affects the local ecosystem,
it is often too late to apply con-
trol measures. The Red Lionfish

Summer's peak has arrived


NOAA meteorologists
blame an unusually strong ridge
of high pressure that has been
persistent for the last several
weeks across much of the central
and eastern U.S. for the cause of
the heat. More than 50 new all-
time high temperature records
were established in the central
and western U.S. during the last
two weeks. The persistence of
the unusually hot temperatures
has made the past month one of
the warmest since records began
in 1895 for the contiguous U.S.
NOAA will not know for anoth-
er two days if the record warm
national record set in July 1936
will be eclipsed.
An intense and long lasting
heat wave began on July 15th in
the northern Plains and Upper
Midwest, breaking records that
had stood since the Dust Bowl
years of the mid-1930s in some
locations. The heat spread across
the Plains by the 19th and
moved into the West by the 21st
before returning to the northern
Plains by the 28th.


AUGUST OUTLOOK
For the month of August,
the NOAA Climate Prediction
Center predicts above normal
temperatures for California,
most of the Southern, Central
and Southeastern parts of the
U.S., especially over the north-
ern Great Plains and upper
Mississippi Valley.
Below median precipitation
is predicted over the southern
and central states. Above-medi-
an precipitation is predicted for
the Southwest monsoon region
and the Northwest, while equal
chances were indicated for the
remainder of the United States.
Below-normal temperatures
are expected in the Hawaiian
Islands during August. Hawaiian
precipitation is given equal
chances of being above, below
or near-median values.
In Alaska, temperatures are
expected to average below nor-
mal in the northwest and above
normal in the southwest.
Precipitation odds are equal for
above; below or near-median.

When hurricanes, wars or
other emergencies force authori-
ties to respond, three essentials
top their list of must-haves:
water, electricity and refrigera-
tion.
Now, in a project funded by
the U.S. Army, two University of
Florida engineers have designed.

be made compact enough to fit
inside a military jet or large
truck.
"If you're in a forward base
in Iraq, it costs you the same per
gallon of water as it does per gal-
lon of fuel," said William Lear, a
UF associate professor of
mechanical and aerospace engi-
neering. "It would be better to
just have to send fuel out there,
especially if you could get


New system provides power,


water, refrigeration from one source


refrigeration and water out of it -
which is what our system
achieves."
Lear and UF mechanical
engineering professor S.A.
Sherif have published several
academic papers on various
aspects of the system, which is
being patented by UF. In
November, they will, present a
paper discussing the system's
experimental results at the
International Mechanical
Engineering Congress &
Exposition in Chicago.
Both the Federal Emergency
Management Agency and the
military now'rely on large gener-
ators to produce electricity in'
hazard zones. For cooling, they
either haul in ice or electricity-
hogging refrigerators.
Depending on the location and
emergency, imported fresh water
may be another major logistical
challenge and expense.
Hoping to cut costs and sim-
plify the process, the Army has


.provided a $750,000 grant to a
small Gainesville company
funding Lear and Sherif's
,research on an alternative.
The engineering
researchers' solution: a small
system that ties a novel gas tur-
bine power plant to a heat-oper-
ated refrigeration system.: The
refrigeration makes the gas tur-
bine more efficietit,, while also
producing cool air and potable
water. The turbine can run on
conventional fossil fuels as well
as biomass-produced fuels or
hydrogen.
Lear said gas turbines are a
common power generator used
in everything from jet engines to
electricity plants. The problem
with traditional versions is that
they lose efficiency both when
not operated at full power and in,
warm temperatures, he said.
Seeking to erase this loss, he
rerouted the path 'of gases pass-
ing through the turbine, cooling
them via heat. exchangers.


Sherif, an expert in refrigeration, makes a big difference when fuel


then tied the system to absorp-
tion units, cooling the gases still
more.
Users can either tap all the
!cooling power to obtain peak
efficiency for the turbine, or
divert some for refrigeration or
air conditioning. "You can
decide how much of. one you
want versus how much of the
other, depending on your needs,"
Sherif said.
Lear said his experiments
and computer models suggest
that with all the cooling devoted
to the turbine, it will be 5 percent
to 8 percent more efficient than
traditional turbines. With some
cooling siphoned for other pur-
poses, it was still 3 percent to 5
percent more efficient than the
turbines. Contrasting traditional
gas turbines, the system main-
tains its efficiency whether oper-
ated at peak or partial power.
A few percentage points
might not seem like much, but it


is scarce or expensive, particu-
larly if refrigeration and water
are added bonuses; Lear said.
"Power companies would kill for
a 1 percent gain,"' he said.
The system,, which makes
water by condensing the tur-
bine's combustion gases, is capa-
ble of producing about one gal-
lon of water for every gallon of
fuel burned, Sherif said. The
water would need to be treated to
be potable, but even if untreated
it could be used for cleaning or
other purposes. Because the
plant reuses gases so extensively,
the power plant also has very
low polluting emissions, Lear
added.
Sherif, Lear and colleagues
have built a working prototype
of the plant for experiment and
testing purposes. Housed in an
engineering college laboratory, it
appears at first as a maze of
tubes and pipes reminiscent of a
Dr. Seuss drawing. But a closer


inspection reveals a carefully
designed "flow pattern" routing
gases through and around' a
small gas turbine, with dozens of
electronic and pneumatic moni-
toring probes. Operators run the.
test plant from an adjacent con-
trol room.
Lear said further research is
required to make the plant more
compact and otherwise enhance
its performance. That's one of
the goals of the Army's Small
Business Innovation Research
Grant to the'Gainesville compa-
ny, Triad Research. He added
that larger versions could be
used in fixed locations as part of
the normal power grid. For
example, utilities could build the
plant nearby a grocery store
warehouse that required both
electricity and cooling.
