Hillsborough County Commissioner Ronda Storms, who is running for state Senate District 10, speaks
about transportation during Tuesday's public forum in Tampa.


By Carter Chase
Staff Writer
Jeremy Zelanes, a candidate
for state House District 62 from
Valrico, knows how annoying an
inadequate transportation system
can be.
"Problems with traffic
means longer time away from
family," said Zelanes.
If transportation is to
improve in the Tampa Bay area,
several of this year's candidates
for political office agree that
there needs to be better collabo-
ration between the counties,
their cities and the state in order
to address the probleiis. There
is, however, some difference in
opinion about how to make that
happen.
Statewide and Hillsborough
Counts candidates met Tuesday
evening to share their views on
mass, transportation during a
public forum hosted by the
Hillsborough Advocates fqr
Improved Transit (HAFIT j.
More than two dozen candi-
dates spoke in front of a crowd
of nearly 80 people who attend-
ed the event at the Tampa Port
Authority.


Virtually every candidate
that spoke stressed the impor-
tance of improving transporta-
tion in the Bay area.
"With the high price of gas,
insurance, auto repair....this is a
serious problem that needs atten-
tion," said Hakim Aquil, a
Democrat running for state'
House District 59.
Kevin White, a Democrat
on the Tampa City Council who
is hoping to retain his seat, said
the problem isn't just associated
with the increasing costs of trav-
eling.
"Our growth is overwhelm-
ing the actual transportation sys-
tem that. we have now," said
White.
In discussing how to go
about improving the situation,
Deborah Cope, a Democratic
candidate for state House
District 57 said she wants a
regional transit authority "to
work with all of the surrounding
counties."
Former state Rep. Sandy
Murman, who is running for the
District 10 seat in the state
Senate, also spoke in favor of'
establishing a regional authority,
to handle transportation issues.


"The regional transit author--
ity will really be the way to go,"
said Murman..
SOne of her opponents in the
Republican primary though, has
a different take.
Hillsborough County
Commissioner Ronda Storms
made) it clear that she opposes:
the formation of a regional tran-
sit authority, citing the fact that
each county already has an
agency to deal with transporta-
tion issues and that their .leaders
meet routinely to discuss region-
al matters.
"I'm not sure what forming
a regional transit authority
would do," said Storms. "Make
the system you have here today
work today."
Zelanes agreed with
Storms.
:"I don't believe we need
another bureaucracy," he said.
The bottom line from the
meeting was that the candidates
agreed that new measures need.
to be taken in order to improve
transportation.
"We can't keep doing the
same thing," said Don Kruse,
candidate for the Hillsborough
County Commission.

"Winning this cook-off is
extremely exciting," said Chef
Timineri. "It was a team effort
and I could not have done with-'
out Josh."
As executive chef, Timineri
develops new ways to prepare
meals using Florida ingredients.
As part of the "Fresh from
Florida" marketing campaign,
Timineri conducts cooking
demonstrations and other pro-

Tom Gallagher, Florida's
chief financial officer, kicked off
the, My Safe Florida Home pro-
gram Tuesday, a $250 million
mitigation program to help
Floridians strengthen their
homes against hurricanes and to
reduce property losses in
Florida. Effective immediately,
Gallagher said eligible
Floridians can apply for free
home inspections and profes-
sional recommendations on how
to improve their homes' abilities
to withstand a hurricane.
Gallagher said that as many as
50,000 Florida households will
be served over the next year
through this program.
It has been a priority for the
Department of Financial
Services to get the My Safe
Florida Home program up and
running as quickly as possible.
Since the new law went into
effect on July 1, the Department
of Financial Services remained
committed to the goal to serve as
many Floridians as possible this
hurricane season, by having My
Safe Florida Home open for
business less than 60 days from
its creation. In fact, the
Department of Financial
.Services ..has already helped
more than 23.000 Floridians find
out, more about how they can
make their homes safer against
hurricanes.
"I applaud the Florida
Legislature for providing a
tremendous financial commit-
ment to make older homes more
resistant to damage caused by
hurricanes," said Governor Jeb
Bush "With more than three
months remaining in the 2006


Hurricane Season, I thank CFO
Gallagher and the Department of
Financial Services for working
to quickly implement this. criti-
cal program. Fortifying Florida
through mitigation efforts will
ensure our economy remains
strong in the face of future hurri-
canes."
"Before this hurricane sea-
son ends, my goal is to have
12,000 free home inspections
completed and grants awarded to
help Floridians strengthen their
homes and better protect their
families from hurricanes," said
Gallagher, who oversees, the
Department of Financial
Services. "Fortifying homes in
Florida is a common-sense solu-
tion for the insurance crisis in
our state.. Governor Bush and I
are committed to building on the
success of this program and
making sure every Floridian
benefits by making our homes
and communities safer."
To be eligible to apply for a
free home inspection, Floridians
niust live in a single-family, site-
built home with an insured value
of $500,000 or less and have a
valid homestead exemption
Documents verifying this infor-
mation must be submitted with a
completed application
Floridians .can apply on-line at
www.mysafefloridahome.com
or by calling 1-S00-342-2762 to
. get an application packet.
Gallagher said that once an
.inspection has been done, the
homeowner will receive a report
within 7 to 10 days that outlines
up to seven areas that could be

North Kenwood to break

ground on Booker Creek

SPark improvements today


Booker Creek Park users
will soon enjoy a lighted foot
path around the lake, new pedes-
trian bridges, picnic shelters,
bike racks, park benches, piers, a
gazebo, and other new amenities
when major improvements are
completed by the end of next
year.
The public is invited to
groundbreaking ceremonies for
the Booker Creek Park construc-
tion project today, at 3:30 p.m.,
at 2323 Ninth Ave. N. Parking
will be available in the Edward
White Hospital parking lot. City
officials and North Kenwood
Neighborhood Association lead-'
ers will participate in the cere-
monial groundbreaking and brief
remarks about the project, fol-
lowed with refreshments being
served in the Edward White
Hospital cafeteria.'
Booker Creek Park is locat-
ed between Ninth Ave. N. and
13th Ave. N., between 1-275 on
the east and approximately 24th
Street on the west. The scope of
the project also includes a lake
fountain, refurbishing two exist-
ing bridges, resurfacing an exist-
ing playground, improving the
northeast corer parking area,
and adding a parking area near
the playground on the northwest
corer. In conjunction with new
landscaping within the park,
plans also involve vegetation
removal, native replanting, and
interstate buffer planting outside
the park boundaries.
.Total cost of the two-phase


project is approximately
$810,000 -- including a $25,000
city/neighborhood partnership
grant obtained by the NKNA,
$30,000 in matching funds. pro-
vided by Edward White
Hospital, $200,000 from the
Florida Recreation Development
Assistance Program, and the
remaining balance from Penny
for Pinellas funding. Most of the
work will be performed in-house
by the city's Engineering,
Capital Improvements and Parks
departments. Anticipated com-
pletion date is the end of next
year, 2007.
."This is a great project that
illustrates a unique partnership
between the neighborhood asso-
ciation, Edward White Hospital
and the city," said Mayor Rick
Baker.
"To date, this is the largest
and most comprehensive project
to improve the limited amount of
public, city-owned land in the
North Kenwood neighborhood,"
said NKNA President Phillip
Whysong.
"We are thrilled to see this
medium-sized section of well-
used parkland improved and
expanded for the enjoyment of
residents and visitors alike.
North Kenivood, like other city
neighborhoods, has limited park
space for public usage, and the
Booker Creek Park Master Plan
involves a comprehensive new
use of public space," said St.
Petersburg District 8 Council
Member Jeff Danner.

Program, from 1
home against hurricanes, an esti-
mate of how much each of those
improvements would cost, the
expected insurance savings the
homeowner would receive if the
improvements were made, and a
rating of the home's current abil-
ity to withstand hurricanes and
the home's future ability with
improvements.
The department has worked
with the Federal Alliance for
Safe Homes (FLASH) to screen
and train 130 inspectors to begin
work within the next two weeks.
An additional 400 inspectors are
expected to complete the screen-
ing and training required within
the next 30 days.
Gallagher said that applying
and obtaining a free home
inspection is just the first step of
the program. Homeowners who
undergo the My Safe Florida
Home inspection may also qual-


ify for matching grants of up to
$5,000 to fortify their homes.
As directed by the new law to
reduce hurricane exposure and
property losses in Florida, grants
will be prioritized and awarded
to homeowners who live in high-
risk, hurricane-vulnerable areas
of the state.
Gallagher said the depart-
ment will also start screening
and qualifying contractors to
perform retrofit improvements
this week. Gallagher also said
that a registry of participating
contractors by county and by the
type of work they perform will
soon be available on-line at
www.mysafefloridahome.com
or by calling the department.
"We want to help as many
Floridians strengthen their
homes as we can, while making
sure that they get the best quali-
ty of work to protect their
homes," Gallagher said.


NASA team gives


Atlantis a "go"


Lw


.... ..

S0 ,, : l, 1 i.-

With the final launch rehearsal completed, the STS-115 crew
gathers on the 215-fbot level of the fixed service structure on Launch
Pad 39B. From left are Pilot Christopher Ferguson, Mission Specialists
Heidemarie Stefanyshyn-Piper and Joseph Tanner, Commander Brent
Jett, and Mission Specialists Steven MacLean and Daniel Burbank.


At a press conference late
Wednesday, following the two-
day flight readiness review at
NASA's Kennedy Space Center
in Florida, NASA's senior man-
agers announced an Aug. 27
launch date for mission STS-
115, resuming construction of
.the International Space Station.
Launch is slated to occur around
4:30 p.m. EDT.
NASA Administrator
Michael Griffin said, "This was
another great review and I'm
looking forward to a great
launch."
The Shuttle Mission
Management Team conducts the
review two weeks prior to the
opening of the launch window
for each space shuttle mission.
The group conducts a compre-
hensive evaluation of all activi-
ties and elements necessary for
the safe and successful perfor-
mance of shuttle mission opera-
tions -- from the prelaunch phase
through post-landing -- includ-
ing the readiness of the vehicle,
flight crew and payloads.
"We had a tremendous
amount of discussion from all
the folks involved, we covered a
variety of topics. The challenge
of the ISS assembly is really
huge it is a very busy timeline. It
really impressed me with how
much the teams have prepared
for this," said William
Gerstenmaier, associate admin-
istrator for space operations.
The launch date is at the
opening of the launch window,
which extends until Sept. 13.
NASA is once again limiting the
launch to daylight hours to allow
for extensive photography of the
external tank during ascent.
"Team Atlantis is extremely
happy to be at the launch pad
and to have a date set. They are
feeling really good right now,"
said NASA Launch Director
Mike Leinbach.


With this mission, NASA is
ready to get back to building the
International Space Station,
marking the first time in almost
four years that a space station
component has-been added to
the orbiting outpost. That also
means the shuttle program is
coming up on some of the most
challenging space missions ever.
During three spacewalks,
crew members of Atlantis will
install the P3/P4 integrated truss
and a second set of solar arrays
on the, space station, doubling
the station's current ability to
generate power from sunlight
and adding 17.5 tons to its mass.
Launch Dress Rehearsal
Completed
Mission STS-115 training
exercises culminated last week
in Florida with a launch dress
rehearsal and simulated count-
down with the look and feel of a
real launch day. The astronauts
suited up in their familiar bright-
orange launch and entry suits
before leaving for the launch pad
aboard the "Astrovan," just as
they will on launch day. At the
pad, they were strapped in their
seats aboard the Space Shuttle
Atlantis as the launch team took
them through the mock count-
down.
The STS-115 crew consists
of Commander Brent W. Jett Jr.,
Pilot Christopher J. Ferguson
and Mission Specialists
Heidemarie M. Stefanyshyn-
Piper, Joseph R. Tanner, Daniel
C. Burbank and Steven G.
MacLean, who represents the
Canadian Space Agency.
During their 11 days in
space, the astronauts will install
the integrated P3/P4 truss seg-
ment with its two large solar
arrays that will provide one-
fourth of the total power genera-
tion capability of the completed
station.

St. Petersburg man pleads
guilty to cable t.v. fraud
United States Attorney Paul I. Perez
announced Wednesday, August 9, that
Timothy Scott Simpson, a 44 year old resi-
dent of St. Petersburg, pleaded guilty to one
count of mail fraud involving a nation-wide
scheme to defraud providers of cable televi-
sion channels. The maximum penalty
Simpson faces is five years' imprisonment, a
$250,000 fine, three years of supervised
release, and a special assessment of $100.
SSimpson pleaded guilty to devising a
mail fraud scheme in which he advertised
and sold "non-addressable" or "bulletproof"
cable television descramblers over an inter-
net website called "MyBoxx.com." The
descramblers enabled persons who sub-
scribed to receive "basic" cable television
channels to receive "premium" channels,
such as HBO and Showtime, without pay-
ment of the additional fee the cable televi-
sion providers usually charge for premium
channels. In the written plea agreement filed
with the Court, Simpson admitted to selling
almost 8,000 cable descramblers from
August 2000 to March 2003, and receiving
$1,196,925 from those sales.
As part of the plea agreement, Simpson
has agreed-to forfeit to the government a
house located in Villa Park Estate in St.
Petersburg valued at approximately
$800,000, and a 2002 Porsche 911 convert-
ible which were purchased with proceeds
from the sales, as well as the contents of sev-
eral bank accounts.
The case was investigated by the
Federal Bureau of Investigation, Clearwater
Office and the Pinellas County Sheriffs
Office. The case is being handled by
Assistant United States Attorney Dennis I.
Moore.

Pinellas Park Lockheed Martin
facility to help build new
stealth fighter
Workers at Lockheed Martin's [NYSE:
LMT] Pinellas Park, Fla., facility will build
the canopy for the military's newest stealth
fighter the F-35 Lightning II bringing new
jobs to the region.
The announcement was made
Wednesday by U.S. Congressman Bill
Young, chairman of the House
Appropriations Subcommittee on Defense.
The Pinellas Park plant will produce
canopies in support of F-35 Lightning II pro-
duction, which is forecast to exceed 4,500
aircraft over the life of the program. .
"The F-35 Lightning II is the future of
airpower in the 21st century for America and
our allies and ensures that our nation contin-
ues to provide our pilots with the best fight-
er aircraft in the world," Young said. "The
announcement of this new line of work for
the employees at the facility in Pinellas Park
is further evidence of their commitment as a
center of excellence for quality and efficien-
cy and I, congratulate each member of this
talented team of aerospace workers for a job
well done. The creation of new jobs here
shows the significance and importance of
this aircraft to our nation, and it shows
Lockheed Martin's continuing commitment
to our area."
Lockheed Martin opened the Pinellas
operation in 1997 in a newly built facility
with 80 employees. The workforce has
grown as the plant has acquired component
work for aircraft including the C-130J Super
Hercules, F-22 Raptor, F-16 Fighting Falcon
and the C-5 Galaxy. Pinellas produces some
13,000 detail parts for the C-130J, 2,000 dif-
ferent parts for the F-22, 143 subassemblies
for the F-16 and more than 400 parts for the
C-5..

Las mileage tips for smart
consumers
Labor Day is just around the corer and
many families will be,heading out on the
road for summer's last vacation. Here are
some tips from Pinellas County Justice and
Consumer Services to help ] ou get the most
miles from Nour gas tank:

Drive More Efficiently
.*Drive sensibly
S*Observe the speed limit
*Remove excess weight from your car
*Avoid excessive idling
*Use cruise control

Keep Your Car in Shape
*Check and replace air filters regularly
*Keep tires properly inflated
*Use the recommended grade of motor
oil

Choose a More Efficient Vehicle
*Selecting which vehicle to purchase is
the most important fuel-economy decision
you'll make. The difference between a car
that gets 20 miles-per-gallon'and one that
gets 30 amounts to $550 a year, assuming;
you're driving 15,b00oo miles of driving at a
fuel cost of $2.20 per gallon. The difference
is more pronounced as gas prices continue to
rise.

Some "wheel" good advice for
new or used car buyers
For many people, purchasing a vehicle
can be very stressful and time consuming.
Pinellas County Justice and Consumer
Services offers these tips to help consumers
make their best deal and avoid becoming the
victims:of aggressive salespeople:
*Remember. that there's no three-day
right to cancel on the purchase of any new or
used vehicles. Once you've signed the con-
tract and accepted delivery, the contract is
binding.
*It's very important to read and under-
stand all of the documents you're signing
when you're buying a car. Never sign any
documents that contain blank statements
and, if you don't understand something in the
contract, make sure the salesperson explains
it.
*Ask about warranties and extending
warranties, especially for used vehicles.

Completed canopy units \\ill be shipped to
Lockheed Martin's faciity 'in Fort Worth,
Texas, for final installation on the F-35.
"The F-35 Lightning II will be produced
over at least the next 25' years, creating sig-
nificant, long-term work for this region',"
said Tom Burbage, Lockheed Martin execu-
tive vice president and F-35 program inte-
gration manager.
The Pinellas facility, which now
employs approximately 200 people, could
add up to 30 jobs over the next several years
for the F-35 work.
Steve Cobb, general manager for the
Pinellas, plant, said, "We are excited about
the opportunity\ to work on this one-of-a-
kind program. Continued production of the
F-35 Lightning II guarantees work for us in
Pinellas for a long time, and we plan on
building thousands of canopies o\er the life-
of the program. A long-term order like this is
a strong endorsement of the quality products
being manufactured by our extremely talent-
ed team."
The Lightning II is a 5TH Generation,
supersonic stealth fighter designed to
replace a wide range of existing aircraft,
including AV-8B Harriers, A-10s, F-16s,
F/A-18 Hornets and United Kingdom
Harrier GR.7s and Sea Harriers. The F-35
will be the most powerful single-engine
fighter ever made.

First ever alternative fuel

summit in Florida set


Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson announced today that.
he is taking steps to pave the way
for alternative fuel production
and use use in Florida. He is
hosting the first ever, Florida
Farm to Fuel Summit August 30
to September 1 at the Omni
Orlando.at Champions Gate.
The summit will cover cur-
rent research initiatives, future
production and distribution of
ethanol and bio-diesel in Florida,
and incentives/financing oppor-
tunities for the alternative or
renewable fuels industry.
It is attracting high-level
participants from the federal and
state government, as well as rep-
resentatives of private industry
who will be a driving force in
achie ing a major alternative
fuels program. Keynote speakers
include Assistant Secretary for
-nergy Efficiency and
'enewable Energy Alexander
rsner. ULSDA Under Secretary
r Research. Education and
economics Gale Buchanan, State
senatorr Lee Constantine and
-tate Representatike Adam
.Hasner. The program will, also
Feature a special presentation on
Brazil's effort at achieving petro-


leum independence.
The summit is a component
of Bronson's ambitious "Farm to
Fuel" initiative a comprehen-
sive effort to promote alternative
energy'and help position Florida
as a leader in the production of
bio-fuels.
"Since the passage of the
Energy Policy Act, of 2005,
announcement of the President's
Advanced Energy Initiative and&
passage of Florida's Energy Act,
the interest in renewable energy
has never been greater,"
Bronson said. Our Farm to
Fuel Summit is just one of many
ways that we are trying to bring
the necessary parties and stake-.
holders together to discuss using
the state's renewable resources
to reduce our dependency on for-
eign oil and other non-renewable
sources of energy. Our ultimate
goal is to enhance the market for,
and promote the production and
distribution of renewable energy
from Florida-grown crops, agri-
cultural wastes and residues, and
other biomass.
Bronson said' that as fuel
prices continue to skyrocket, all
Florida citizens should be taking.
an interest in arid supporting
alternative fuels development.

When a hurricane strikes,
authorities are increasingly turn-
ing to satellite images and com-
puter-based maps to tell them
everything from where themost
vulnerable people live to where
the closest supply of food, water
and ice is located.
While these maps can be
beneficial in planning response
and recovery, their imprecise
nature can result in people not
getting the help they need. That's
why Florida State University
geography Professor Mark W..
Horer has received a $64,760
grant from the National,Science
Foundation to develop new spa-
tial models for disaster relief.
"Planning for disaster relief
is of great societal importance as
we learned during last year's
devastating hurricane season,"
Horner said.,"I hope to improve
the way geographical phenome-
na are represented in mathemati-
cal models used to allocate disas-
ter relief goods. Better models,
in turn, will lead to improve-
ments in our ability to plan and
prepare for extreme weather
events."
By trying out different
mathematical equations, Homer
hopes to develop new methods
that will allow more detailed
models to be implemented with-
in geographic information sys-
tems (GIS) computer-based
systems that allow users to ana-
lyze and visualize geographical-
ly referenced data. More detailed,
information will result in a
reduction of errors in assess-
ments of factors such as response
and travel time to. nearest relief
centers.
Generally, any spatially ref-
erenced data that might be need-
ed to .assess or perform disaster
relief information on storm"
tracks, populations, and road and
highway infrastructure can be
stored in a GIS, Homer said.
When the computer-based sys-


teams are combined with remote-
ly sensed aerial or satellite
images, they produce maps that
can be powerful decision-mak- -
ing tools.

Kids with OCD


bullied more than


others, study shows


Children with obsessive-
compulsive disorder are three
times more likely to be bullied
than other children, and the
name-slinging could cause
symptoms of OCD to worsen,
University of Florida researchers
have found
"One of the things we have
noticed working with many kids
with OCD is that peer relations
are extremely impaired," said
Eric Storch, a UF assistant pro-
fessor of psychiatry and pedi-
atrics and lead author of the
study. "Kids target kids who are
different. Kids with OCD some-
times exhibit behaviors that
peers simply don't understand."
More than one-quarter of
the children with OCD who
researchers studied reported
chronic'bullying as a problem,
according to findings described
in the September issue of the
Journal of Clinical Child and
Adolescent Psychology.,
By comparison, only 9 per-
cent of kids in the two' other
groups researchers studied -
healthy kids without medical or
mental conditions and children
with type 1 diabetes reported
serious problems with bullies:.
Nearly all children are bul-
lied at least once in their lives.
But chronic bullying equates to
about one taunt per day, ranging
from kicking or hitting to name-
calling; or, excluding children
from acitixities in school.
S"The kids with OCD are
really experiencing higher rates
of peer problems than other
kids," Storch said. "We're not
saying one causes the other, but
there is a positive relationship
between (OCD and bullving'i."
About one in 100 children
struggle with OCD, an anxiety
disorder that leads people to
engage in rituals such as hand
washing to drive away obsessive
thoughts about germs or other
worries. Rituals often become so
involved that they interfere with
a person's ability to function,
according to the National
Institute of Mental Health.
"Their day becomes filled
with repeating behaviors,"
Storch said. "For a lot of kids,
peers don't understand what is
going on. They are isolated.
They are ostracized because it
doesn't make sense why they are
washing their hands. Why they
keep repeating questions."
The researchers also found
links between bullying and other
problems, namely loneliness and
depression, in children with
OCD, Storch said. Kids were


also apt to internalize (bullies'
negative comments, telling
themselves, "No one will ever
love me," or "Maybe I am /a
loser," Storch said.
Having OCD and condi-
tions such as depression is
linked, to, worsening,, obsessive-
compulsive symptoms, poten-
tially explaining why
researchers also found a link
between bullying and more seri-
ous symptoms.
"It could be that the peers
are attacking because they are
doing things that are so differ-
ent," he said. "Or it might be that
bullying is in some way con-
tributing to OCD."
Compulsive behaviors such
as repeating questions, recount-
ing and rechecking information
can draw attention to kids with
OCD in school, as can vocal or
physical tics, common among
children with OCD, said Phoebe
Moore, an assistant clinical pro-
fessor of child psychiatry at
Duke University.
"That kind of behavior can
draw fire," Moore said. "I defi-
nitely see that clinically."
Treating OCD either with
approved drugs or behavior
modification techniques will
help patients control their obses-
sions and compulsions,. Storch
said. But he emphasizes that
doctors need to examine the
whole child and not just treat
OCD symptoms.
"When one focuses solely
on the obsessions and compul-
sions you experience a resolu-
tion of those problems, but prob-
lems like depression or anxiety
and loneliness may still exist,"
he said. "If you address the OCD
without addressing the peer
problems, that depression and
loneliness may not go away."
Storch suggests parents help
children learn how to handle
aggressive peers, either at home
or by finding a counselor who
can help them develop social
skills. Parents should also take
their concerns to their child's
school if teachers or administra-
tors are not stopping the bullying
before it becomes a problem.
"Bullying is one of the
largest challenges kids, with
OCD and in general, have to
face," he said. "One of the main
clinical implications is consider-
ing the child as an entire person,
one who has OCD but who also
has other impairments."

A recent study provides evi-
dence that autism affects the
functioning of virtually the
entire brain, and is not limited to
the brain areas involved with
social interactions, communica-
tion behaviors, and reasoning
abilities, as had been previously
thought. The study, conducted
by scientists in a research net-
work supported by the National
Institutes of Health (NIH), found
that autism also affects a broad
array of skills and abilities,
including those involved with
sensory perception, movement,
and memory.
The findings, appearing in
the August Child
Neuropsychology, strongly sug-
gest that autism is a disorder in
which the various parts of the
brain have difficulty working
together to. accomplish complex
tasks.
The study was conducted by
researchers in the Collaborative
Program of Excellence in
Autism (CPEA), a research net-
work funded by two components
of the NIH, the National Institute
of Child Health and Human
Development and the National
Institute on Deafness and Other
Communication Disorders.
"These findings suggest that
further understanding of autism
will likely come not from the
study of factors affecting one
brain area or system, but from
studying factors affecting many
systems," said the director of
NICHD, Duane Alexander, M.D.
People with autism tend to
display 3 characteristic behav-
iors, which are the basis of the
diagnosis of autism, explained
the study's senior author, Nancy
Minshew, M.D., Professor of
Psychiatry and Neurology at the
University of Pittsburgh School
of Medicine. These behaviors
involve difficulty interacting'
socially, problems with verbal
and non-verbal communications,
and repetitive behaviors or nar-
row, obsessive interests.
Traditionally Dr. Minshew said,
researchers studying" aiutisi'
have concentrated on these
behavioral areas.


Within the last 20 years,
however, researchers began
studying other aspects of think-
ing and brain functioning in
autism, discovering that people
with autism have difficulty in
many other areas, including bal-
ance, movement, memory, and
visual perception skills.
In the current study, Dr.
Minshew and her colleagues
administered a comprehensive
array of neuropsychological
tests to a group of children with
autism. The researchers tested
56 autistic children, and com-
pared their responses to those of
56 children who did not have
autism. The children with autism
were classified as having higher
functioning autism an I.Q. of
80 or above, and the ability to
speak, read, and write. All of the
children in the study ranged in
age from 8 to 15 years. The pur-
pose of the test array, Dr.
Minshew said, was to determine
whether there were any patterns
in mental functioning unique to
autism.
"We set out. to find com-
monalities across a broad range
of measures, so that we could
make inferences about what's
going on in the brain," .Dr.
Minshew said.
The researchers found that,
across the entire series of tests,
the children with autism per-
formed as well as and in some
instances even better than the
other children on measures of
basic functioning. Uniformly,
however, they had trouble with
complex tasks.
For example, regarding
visual and spatial skills, the chil-
dren with autism were very good
at finding small objects in a clut-
tered visual field, on tasks like
finding Waldo in the "Where's
Waldo" picture books series.
However, when asked to per-
form a complex task, like telling
the difference between the faces
of similar looking people, they
had great difficulty.
Although heir memory for
the detail in a story was phenom-
.erial, the children with autism
had great difficulty comprehend-


ing the story. Many were highly
proficient at spelling and had a
good command of grammar, but
had difficulty understanding
complex figures of speech, like
idioms and metaphors.
"We see this with our
patients," Dr. Minshew said. "If
you use an expression like 'hop
to it,' a child with autism may lit-
erally hop."
Other complex tasks were
also difficult for them. The chil-
dren with autism either had poor
handwriting, or wrote very slow-
ly. Many had difficulty tying
their shoes and with using scis-
sors.
"These findings show that
you can't compartmentalize
autism under three basic areas,"
Dr. Minshew said. "It's much
more complex than that."
Dr. Minshew explained that
the major implication of the
finding is that when seeking to
understand autism, researchers
need to look for a cause or caus-
es that affect multiple brain
areas, rather than limiting their
search to brain areas dealing
with the three characteristic
behaviors involving social inter-
actions, communication, and
repetitive behaviors or obsessive
interests.
"Our paper strongly sug-
gests that autism is not primarily
a disorder of social interaction,
but a global disorder affecting'
how the brain processes the
information it receives espe-
cially when the information
becomes complicated."
In previous research with an
imaging technology known as
functional magnetic resonance'
imaging, or fMRI, Dr. Minshew
and her coworkers determined
that adults with autism have
abnormalities in the neurological
wiring through which brain areas
communicate. In those studies,
the researchers found that people
with autism had difficulty per-
forming certain complex tasks
that involved brain: areas work-
ing together. (This research is
described in previous releases,
http://wwuw.nichd.niih.gbv/new/r
eleases/final_autism.cfm, and


http://www.nichd.nih.gov/new/r
eleases/autismbrainstructure.c
fm.)
Dr. Minshew said that such
abnormalities in brain circuitry
provide the most likely explana-
tion for why the children with
autism in the current study have
difficulty with complex tasks
that require coordination among
brain regions but do well on
tasks that require only one
region of the brain at a time.
The researchers undertook
the current study as a follow up
to an earlier study they did of
adults with autism. The
researchers studied children to
determine if the features of
autism were consistent through-
out life, or changed as people
with autism grow older. For the
most part, the current study
revealed that both adults and
Children with autism experience
the same kinds of difficulties
with complex tasks.
One difference is that adults
with autism appear to score
higher on tests involving sensory.
interpretation than do children
with autism. Such tests would
involve identifying a number
traced on a finger tip, or identi-
fying an object placed in one's
hand without looking at it. Dr.
Minshew said that as people
with autism grow older, they
may have less sensory difficulty
than they did as children.
Still, adults with autism fare
much worse on tests of complex
language and reasoning than do
other adults. This gap in com-
plex language, and reasoning
ability between the two groups is
not as pronounced when children
with autism are compared to
other children. This is because
children's brains have not yet
developed these skills, Dr.
Minshew said. Ho%\ever, the gap
widens, with time. As typical
children get older, they develop
these higher order language and
reasoning skills while adoles-
cents and adults With autism do
not.

Healing potential discovered in


everyday human brain cells


University of Florida
researchers have shown ordinary
human brain cells may share the
prized qualities 'of self-renewal
and adaptability normally asso-
ciated with stem cells.
Writing online today (Aug.
16) in Development, scientists
from UF's McKriight Brain
Institute describe how they used
mature human brain cells taken
from epilepsy patients to gener-
ate new brain tissue in mice.
Furthermore, they can coax
these pedestrian human cells to
produce large amounts of new
brain cells in culture, with one
cell theoretically able to begin a
cycle of cell division that.does
not stop until the cells number
about 10 to the 16th power.
"We can theoretically take a
single biain cell out of a human
being and with just this one
cell generate enough brain
cells, to replace every cell of the
,donor's brain and conceivably
those of 50 million other peo-
ple," said Dennis Steindler,
executive director of UF's
McKnight Brain Institute. "This
is a completely new source of
human brain cells that can poten-
tially be used to fight
Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's
disease, stroke and a host of
other brain disorders..It would
probably only take months to get
enough material for a human
transplant operation."
The findings document for


the first time the ability of com-
mon human brain cells to morph
into different cell types, a previ-
ously unknown characteristic,
and are the result of the research
team's long-term investigations
of adult human stem cells and.
rodent embryonic stem cells.
Last year, the researchers
published details about how they
used stem-like brain cells from
rodents to duplicate neurogene-
sis the process of generating
new brain cells in a dish. The
latest, findings go further, show-
ing common.human brain cells
can generate different cell types
in cell cultures. IIn addition,
when researchers transplanted
these human cells into mice, the
cells effectively incorporated in
a variety of brain regions.
The human cells were
acquired from patients who had
undergone surgical treatment for
epilepsy and
were extracted from support
tissue within the gray matter,
which is not known for harbor-
ing stem cells.
When the donor cells were
subjected to a bath of growth
agents within cell cultures, a
type of cell emerged that'
behaves like something called a
neural progenitor a cell that is
a bit further along in develop-
ment than a stem cell but shares
a stem cell's vaunted ability to
divide and transform into differ-
.ent types of brain cells.


Even when the cells from
the epilepsy patients were trans-,
planted into mice, bypassing any
growth enhancements, they were
able to take cues from their sur-
roundings and produce new neu-
rons.
"It was a long and difficult
process, but we were able to
induce what are basically sup-
port cells in the human brain to
form beautiful new neurons in a
dish," said Noah Walton, a grad-
uate student in the neuroscience
department at the UF College of
Medicine. "But what we really
needed is for these support cells
to'tuiri into neurons in the brain,
and we found we could get them
to do it. Somethingin the envi-
ronment in the rodent brain is
sufficient to get these cells to
become neurons."
Scientists speculate a small
amount of existing progenitors
may be emerging from the gray
matter of the brain and multiply-'
ing in torrents, or perhaps the
aging clock of the mature cells
actually turns backward when
the donor cells are in a new envi-
ronment, returning them to past
lives as progenitors or as stem
cells.
"It's been shown that the
same sorts of' tissue from the
mouse brain can give rise to
rapidly dividing cells, but this
shows it is true with human
cells," said Dr. Ben Barres, a
professor of neurobiology .at the


Stanford University 'School of
Medicine who was not involved
in the research. "That these, cells
were able to integrate into tissue
in an animal model and actually
survive it was extremely
important to show that. Now the
question is what 'will these cells
do in a human brain? Will they
be able to survive for the long
term and rebuild circuitry? This
work is a first step toward that
end."
In addition to using the cells
in treatments to repair or replace
damaged brain tissue, the ability
to massively expand cell popula-
tions could prove useful in
efforts to test the safety and effi-
cacy of new drugs. It is also pos-
sible to genetically modify the
. cells to produce neurotrophins
- substances that help brain ris-
Ssue survive, researchers said.
The research was supported
by grants from the National
Institute of Neurological
Disorders and Stroke and the
National Heart, Lung and Bloor'
Institute of the Nation
Institutes of Health. Steind
and co-senior author Dr. Bj
Scheffler, a UF neuroscient
are involved with RegenM
Inc.,. a biotechnology compai
that seeks to use stem cell tecL
inology to develop human, thera-
peutics.
