TALLAHASSEE Charlie
Crist today took the oath of
office during the Official

Tuesday, making him Florida's
44th Governor.
Following a 19-gun artillery
salute and flyover, provided by
the Florida National Guard,
Governor Crist set the tone for
his administration in his inaugur-
al address.
He reflected on leaders of
the past, calling for bi-partisan
solutions, outlining his plans for
Florida's future and vowing to
work as "The People's
Governor".
"This will be Florida's
greatest century," said Governor
Crist.
"If we move forward
together as Floridians to do the
people's work, there is nothing
we cannot achieve the People's
legislature and the People's
Governor following the People's
Agenda!"
The new governor called for
bi-partisanship to address the
challenges plaguing Florida's
citizens, specifically the burden
of spiraling property insurance


costs and rising property taxes.
He urged Floridians and
lawmakers alike to reach for new
conclusions and fresh ideas and
emphasized the need for perma-
nent real solutions.
"Our challenge is to recog-
nize our common future, our
common destiny, and to under-
stand that we are stronger in
cooperation than in competi-
tion," said Governor Crist. '.The
work we need to do, we can only
do together."
Governor Crist announced
he will issue his first Executive
Order Wednesday to establish
the creation of the Office of
Open Government within the
Executive Office of the
Governor.
The office will ensure that
Floridians have access to leaders
and the workings of elected offi-
cials.
Crist explained that a com-
plete and thorough review of
every state agency will be con-
ducted to determine how the
organization can better serve the
people of Florida.
"Our people will not be dis-
enfranchised by the parlance of


bureaucracy," said Governor
Crist. "This is the people's gov-
ernment, and clear, plain lan-
guage will be used to make it
open and transparent to all."
In addition to Governor
Crist and Lieutenant Governor

Pitching on to-do list for Devil Rays in 2007


ST. PETERSBURG -- "Let the
Kids Play" will be the mantra of the
Devil Rays for the 2007 season, when
the Rays will have a lineup filled with
familiar faces -- young faces -- from the
previous season.
The outfield trio of Carl Crawford,
Rocco Baldelli and Delmon Young is
unsurpassed in the Major Leagues when
it comes to having youth, talent and
tremendous upsides. They are the foun-
dation of the club's offense and defense.
Despite inconsistency in the
infield, the group that finished the 2006
season will look much the same with
Ben Zobrist at shortstop, Jorge Cantu at
second and Ty Wigginton at first, when
he's not playing any of four other posi-
tions.
Third base will be a different mat-
ter thanks to the addition of Akinori
Iwamura from Japan. B.J. Upton fin-
ished the 2006 season as the team's third
baseman and will arrive in camp this


spring as one of the big question marks
regarding where to position him.
Upton has tremendous physical
tools, but has lacked consistency in the
field and at bat.
Dioner Navarro will return as the
team's catcher and brings the potential
for offensive and defensive improve-
ment.
"I think we're pretty much in agree-
ment that we have a nice group of posi-
tion players that can be a nice core
group for years," Rays manager Joe
Maddon said.
Starting pitching is the most diffi-
cult commodity to come by in the Major
Leagues, and the Rays will start the sea-
son with a young rotation led by left-
hander Scott Kazmir, who appears
headed to be a legitimate No. 1.
Kazmir's sore left shoulder basical-
ly nullified the second half of his sea-
son, but he will be healthy entering
Spring Training.


The big question: Who follows
Kazmir in the rotation? Left-hander
Casey Fossum and right-handers James
Shields and Jae Seo will compose the
two, three and four spots with a spring
competition for the fifth spot.
Cobbling together a bullpen will be
a huge factor in determining how much
the team can improve in 2007.
"We've got to have [Kazmir] come
back well, which we think he is going to
be fine," Maddon said.
"Shields is well, [Seo] did a nice
job, and Casey is coming off surgery.
He's very important for us also. And
then, of course, here comes the fifth
starter, and then we get back to the
amorphic bullpen and trying to really
create some form about that before we
get to the regular season."
Looking in the rearview mirror,
Maddon attributes a lot of his team's
2006 losses to the bullpen.
"A lot of [the losses] occurred


because of what we couldn't do late in
the game, particularly on the pitching
mound," Maddon said. "So, we do need
to answer some questions there. [We]
definitely want to get better in that
regard.
"I thought [Shawn Camp] did a
great job. [Ruddy] Lugo did a great job.
To a certain extent, Seth McClung
showed promise at the end of last sea-
son. I thought Danny Miceli did a nice
job at the end of last season also. We
just have to wait and see. There's no
definitive answers, I don't think, at this
point time.
"I think they are all really good
names. I think some guys really did
prove themselves and put themselves in
prime position for this year, but we still
would like to augment that group."
Offseason report card:
Continuing to follow the team's mission
statement, the Rays did not spend just to
spend.


Instead, they have taken a prudent
approach, examining many deals of the
free agency, and trade variety and have
yet to find anything that made sense
other than acquiring Japanese infielder
Iwamura.
The Rays bid $4.5 million through
the required posting system to acquire
the exclusive negotiating rights to
Iwamura, then they successfully
acquired his services for three years by
signing him to a $7.7 million deal,
including a club option for a fourth year.
The cost of the deal and the fact the
team has control of Iwamura made
sense for the Rays under their model for
building a franchise.
Based on how the club unloaded so
many proven veterans and replaced
them with talented prospects, the odds
are against the Rays to seriously con-
tend in 2007, but they should be fun to
watch. Grade on scale of 1 to 10: 4, it's
too early to tell.


Crist: This will be




Florida's greatest

'07 to-do list: Open government,

win in Iraq, fix entitlements

'Now is the accepted time to make your regular annual good
resolutions," Mark Twain said. "Next week you can begin paving
hell with them as usual."
Cynicism aside, though, compiling a list of resolutions can be a
good exercise -- even for politicians.
This year, the Republican Party lost its conservative soul and,
consequently, lost control of both houses of Congress. If the new
Democrat majority has resolved to maintain its narrow hold on
power, it will need to address three topics. So, in the spirit of the
season and in the interest of bipartisanship, here's what lawmakers
on both sides of the aisle ought to focus on in.2007:
1. Enforce and improve the new Coburn-Obama open-govern-
ment bill.
Perhaps the most important law passed in 2006 was the Federal
Funding Accountability and Transparency Act.
The law orders the creation of a Google-style search engine that
will allow anyone to track more than $1 trillion in federal contracts,
grants and earmarks. That's an important step toward open govern-
ment.
But for it to really work, lawmakers need to follow some com-
monsense restrictions. For example, they need to leave at least 48
hours between when they finish preparing a spending bill and when
it's actually voted on.
All too often, big spending measures are rushed from a confer-
ence committee to Congress for an immediate vote. Even lawmak-
ers don't have time to read the bills they're passing, never mind con-
stituents.
Allowing at least two days between the unveiling of a spending
bill and a vote on it would allow concerned citizens -- including
bloggers (a key reason the bill passed is because Web editors nation-
wide supported it) -- to comb through the measure and identify any
foolish or wasteful spending.
We shouldn't have to wait until after a bill has passed to find out
it includes an indoor rainforest or a "bridge to nowhere." Coburn-
Obama can prevent those sorts of surprises, if lawmakers don't
undermine it.
2. Chart a course for victory in Iraq.
This will be a pivotal year in Iraq. Many ideas are out there --
the recent Iraq Study Group touched off a healthy debate, and in
2007, we can expect to hear more from the White House and the
new defense secretary.
But no matter what approach policymakers choose, it simply
must lead to victory. A defeat, or even a perceived defeat, in Iraq
would weaken U.S. prestige throughout the Middle East, lead to
bloody chaos in Iraq, threaten the very existence of Israel and
embolden terrorists worldwide.
To win, fe United States must force Iraqis to take a larger hand
in their own defense, since only Iraqis can truly stabilize Iraq.:But
we also must make sure they're well-prepared. We should embed
American advisers in Iraqi police and military units to speed their
training. At the same time, we should make it clear that we won't
abandon Iraq's elected government through an immediate with-
drawal. In fact, we shouldn't even set a timetable for pulling out
until the situation on the ground improves.
3. Deal with our entitlement crisis.
Spending the holidays with my grandchildren is uplifting
because, as young Americans, they're growing up in the greatest
nation in history. Yet it was also depressing, because Betsy, William
and Sara each already has the equivalent of an $187,000 mortgage.
That's how much today's youngsters will have to pay just to provide
Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security to their elders.
This isn't merely unfair; if left unchanged it could spell the end
of the American dream. Back in 2005, Democrats helped torpedo
President Bush's reasonable Social Security reform plans, which
included personal accounts that would have allowed every
American to become an investor. This year, lawmakers owe voters
an explanation of how they'll enact long-term reforms without
increasing our tax burden.
Those three topics should give lawmakers plenty to chew on.
Hopefully, they'll be more successful keeping their resolutions than
I've been with my annual vow to lose 20 pounds.
And a Happy New Year to all.

This map shows locations that experienced wildfires greater than 250 acres, from 1980 to 2003.


Data from NASA satellites is advancing
efforts that may soon allow scientists to predict
when and where wildfires occur.
While information from satellites and instru-
ments have recently let scientists more quickly
determine the exact location of wildfires and to
monitor their movement, this research offers a step
toward predicting their development and could
complement data currently used in calculating fire
potential across much of the United States.
By studying shrublands prone to wildfire in
southern California, scientists found that NASA
satellite data accurately detected and mapped two
key factors: plant moisture and fuel condition or
greenness the amount of living plant material in
an area.
Moisture levels and fuel condition, combined
with the weather, play a major role in the develop-
ment, rate of spread, and intensity of wildfires.
"This represents an advance in our ability to
predict wildfires using data from recently
launched instruments," said lead author Dar
Roberts, University of California-Santa Barbara.
"We have come a long way in just the past 5
to 10 years and continue to gather much better data
.on, the variables critical in wildfire development.
.:and spread." : .
To find out how well NASA satellites could
detect these factors, researchers sampled live fuel
moisture, a critical measure used in determining
fire danger, from several different plant species in
sites across Los Angeles County, Calif.
This ground-based data, collected by the Los
Angeles County Fire Department over a five year
period; were then compared to ,reenneq
and moisture measures from NASA -
Moderate Resolution Imna in
Spectrometer and Airbo, ne
Visible/Infrared Imaging SpecroiLmeter
The space-based data were often ci:.oel(
linked to the field measurement. sute'asi-
ing the instruments can be u-ed [o delcl-
mine when conditions are taj'r.ble til
wildfires.
Improving the role of satellite dJ.i ,n
wildfire prediction and inr,.ionrigr
through efforts like these is ci ijal. since
traditional field sampling is Iimiled h.i
high costs, and the number and frequent;,
of sites you can sample," said Roberts.
"This new data on the relative greenness of a


landscape also allows us to see how conditions are
changing compared to the past."
The satellite data worked best on landscapes
with just one major plant type. The amount of veg-
etation cover in an area and its growth rate also
influence the reliability of satellite data for wild-
fire prediction.
Although scientists have long knbwn about
the importance of moisture conditions in wildfire
development, this research suggests that other fac-
tors may be just as significant. "While live fuel
moisture values are critical in the
development of wildfires, it's clearly not the
last word.
Even if vegetation is extremely dry, there are
a number of other factors that influence whether a
fire will develop and how quickly it spreads,
including the ratio of live to dead foliage, plant
type, seasonal precipitation, and weather condi-
tions," said Roberts.
"In Southern California, if a strong Santa Ana
wind event occurs before our first major rainfall in
the fall or winter, the risk for wildfire is signifi-
cantly heightened."
As researchers continue to better understand
wildfire development, they are also creating fire
spread computer models that use wind speed,and
direction forecasts to determine where fire's will
travel.
And in the near future, scientists will likely be
able to map the overall impact of a wildfire on the
landscape and environment, including the amount
of carbon dioxide released into the atmosphere.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) directed its staff to follow
through on suggestions from the public concern-
ing FWC's Alligator Management Program.
FWC Commissioners took the action during
their two-day meeting at Key Largo.
The suggestions came amid an online survey,
during which some respondents suggested broader
alligator hunting and more flexibility in dealing
with nuisance gators.
Commissioners also passed a new rule to
change state manatee protection zones in the St.
Johns River between the Fuller Warren Bridge and
Reddie Point.
The rule will bring FWC zones into line with
federal rules in the area.
Another new rule will establish a no-anchor
zone for sailboats and other vessels with masts in
an area between Big Pine Key and Little Torch
Key, south of U.S. 1.
Masts from anchored vessels in that area have
hit power lines during storms in the past and
caused outages for much of the Keys. The new
rule will take effect in January.
Commissioners also discussed proposed rules
for wildlife management areas for 2007-08 and
draft rule changes concerning permits for Marine
Turtle Program activities.
In addition, they heard updates on issues asso-
ciated with vessel anchoring and on a general
management plan for the Addition Lands in Big
Cypress National Preserve. Commissioners dis-
cussed the strategic focus of the FWC's Division
of Law Enforcement.
The agenda also included review and discus-
sion of work plans for the FWC's divisions of


Freshwater Fisheries Management, Hunting and
Game Management and Law Enforcement.
During the second day of'the meeting,
Commissioners re-elected Rodney Barreto as
chairman and David K. Meehan as vice chairman
for 2007.
In other business, Commissioners approved a
new rule to extend the current moratorium on
reducing traps in the spiny lobster fishery through
the 2007-08 license year and directed staff to con-
tinue working with the ad hoc Spiny Lobster
Advisory Board on management recommenda-
tions for this fishery.
SIn addition, the FWC received a stock assess-
ment of Florida's spotted seatrout fishery,
approved a delegation to the executive director to
complete a memorandum of understanding with
the National Park Service regarding a monitoring
plan for the Research Natural Area in Dry
Tortugas National Park, and received an update on
the future of saltwater fishing in Florida.
Commissioners also approved its marine fish-
eries work plan for 2007-08, which will include a
collaborative effort with federal fishery managers
to gather more information regarding goliath
grouper to determine whether a limited fishery
might be re-established for this protected fishery.
The Commission also reviewed and discussed
the impact of 2005's red tide and directed staff to
proceed with a proposed rule to correct a loophole
in regulations pertaining to possession of monofil-
ament nets.
Commissioners heard recommendations for
the FWC's business plan and a legislative report in
addition to updates on Florida's Wildlife Legacy
Initiative and the future of hunting in Florida.

Rays sign Glover, Reyes and


Grabowski to Minor League deals


ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- The Tampa Bay
Devil Rays have agreed to terms with right-hand-
ed pitchers Gary Glover and Al Reyes and out-
fielder Jason Grabowski on minor league contracts
with invitations to major league spring training.
Glover, 30, owns a career record of 21-18 and
a 5.03 ERA in 149 games, 47 starts, over parts of
six seasons with-the Blue ays, White Sox, Angels
and Brewers.
A graduate of DeLand High School in Florida,
Glover last pitched in the majors in 2005 when he
appeared in 15 games, making 11 starts, with
Milwaukee (5-4, 5.57 ERA). He pitched last sea-
son for the Yomiuri Giants of Japan's Central
League.
Reyes, 36, re-signs with Tampa Bay, the club
that signed him as a free agent in March, 2006. He
owns a 3.60 ERA in 297 career games over 11 sea-
sons with the Brewers, Orioles, Dodgers, Pirates,
Yankees and Cardinals holding opponents to a
.215 batting average.


He last pitched in the majors in 2005 with St.
Louis going 4-2 and ranking among the National
League's top 10 relievers in ERA (2.15) and oppo-
nent's average (.177).
He tore his Ulnar Collateral Ligament in the
season finale and missed the postseason and most
of the 2006 season recovering from 'Tommy John'
suIgeil. He 'r.etured to acnon last \ugust appear-
ing in two games with AAA Durham (3.0-IP, 3-H,
1-ER, 3-SO). Reyes was also a non-roster invite
with the Rays in 2004.
Grabowski, 29, has appeared in 190 career
major league games over parts of three seasons
with the Athletics and Dodgers. He has a career
average of .196 with 11 home runs. His most
extensive action came in 2004 with Los Angeles
when he played in 113 contests and led all of base-
ball with 69 pinch-hit at-bats.
He played last season with the Orix Buffaloes
of Japan's Pacific League.


By Cathy Keen
UF
GAINESVILLE, Fla. After three solid
months of gains, consumer confidence in Florida
fell in December by four points to 89, reflecting
pessimism about gas prices, the housing market
and future economic conditions, University of
Florida economists report.
"The release this month shows a Florida con-
sumer who is still reasonably optimistic about the
economy at present but is expecting a decline in
their finances and the overall economy over the
next year," said Chris McCarty, director of the sur-
vey research center at UF's Bureau of Economic
and Business Research.
The drop in confidence was broad-based, with
declines in four of the five components.
Expectactions about U.S. economic conditions
over the next five years fell nine points to 84.
Expectations about personal finances a year from
now fell seven points to 94. Expectations about
national economic conditions over the next year
fell six points to 82. Perceptions of personal
finances now compared with a year ago fell one
point to 83. Only the component measuring per-
ceptions of whether it is a good time to buy big-
ticket items rose, and by only one point to 102.
SThe declines in December were more pro-
nounced among senior citizens and low-income
households because wealthier families got a lift
from record gains in the stock market, McCarty
said.
Overall, consumer confidence is two points
lower than it was a year ago, he said.
Many shoppers probably made a large per-
centage of their holiday purchases the weekend
before Christmas, although it is unlikely total
retail sales for the season will be exceptional,
McCarty said.
"So far this holiday season, consumers have
been buying electronics and appliances, largely
fueled by deep discounting from retailers," he
said. "Unseasonably warm water is affecting
clothing sales negatively."
Throughout most of 2006, consumer confi-
dence has been driven by changes in gasoline


prides, which are up 10 cents per gallon in Florida
compared to October, McCarty said. The
Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries'
announcement of a planned reduction in daily pro-
duction would typically drive the price higher, but
warmer weather across the United States has
reduced demand, he said.
"Oil prices, and thus the price of gasoline,
face competing forces," he said. "These factors
will in part balance each other out."
A bigger question is the extent to which the
softening of the housing market will affect
Floridians, McCarty said.
"I had expected a much larger downside effect
of the cooling housing market by this time," he
said.
Sales data show that all markets in Florida are
experiencing lower sales of both existing homes
and condos, and in many markets the median
home price is declining, McCarty said. Data from
the Mortgage Bankers Association show resur-
gence in .refinancing activity, although the most
recent report shows a decline in both mortgage and
refinancing applications, he said.
"My expectation is that housing, particularly
in Florida, will continue to decline at least through
the second quarter of 2007," he said. "This will put
downward pressure on consumers, resulting in
lower consumer confidence and a pullback in
spending."
The research center conducts the Florida
Consumer Attitude survey monthly. Respondents
are 18 or older and live in households telephoned
randomly. The preliminary index for December
was conducted from 420 responses. The error rate
is plus or minus 5 percent.
Consumer confidence is designed to help pre-
dict buying patterns by measuring the mood of
consumers toward purchasing. Although other
economic indicators also predict buying patterns,
consumer confidence tends to be available sooner.
The index is benchmarked to 1966, so a value of
100 represents the same level of confidence for the
year. The value of the index is in comparing
changes over time rather than looking at an isolat-
ed month.

UCF police officer 1 of



15 sketch artists in



Florida, assists



local agencies


UCF Police Cpl. Carlos
Maxwell's special pencil-
and-paper skills have helped
several local police agencies
crack cases.
The four-year veteran is
an FBI-trained forensic
sketch artist. He's one of
only 15 forensic artists in
Florida who can provide
forensic composites as well
as skull reconstructions,
according to the Florida
Department of Law
Enforcement.
The Orange County
Sheriff's Office and police
departments in Orlando,
Rockledge and Maitland are
among the agencies that
have called on Maxwell to
draw composite sketches of
suspects who were later
apprehended.
"I've always loved to
draw," said Maxwell, a
father of three. "My mom
said that I could draw before
I could even talk. And I like
helping people. It feels good
to help a victim be part of the
process of getting the bad
guy."
Maxwell attended the
Forensic Facial Imagining
Program at the FBI academy
in Quantico in 2003, a year
after he arrived at UCF.
There he learned to refine an
innate talent he only took
one art class in high school
and one as a student at UCF
The FBI also taught him to
be sensitive to victims he
interviews for his sketches.
"There's a lot of psy-
chology involved," Maxwell
said. "You have to get them
comfortable and confident,
and they have just been trau-
matized. So you ask about
telling details that aren't just
physical. For example, what
did his breath smell like?"
If victims could smell


the suspects' breath, they
were mere inches away, he
said. That means the victims
got good looks at the perpe-
trators and have good details
stored away in their memo-
ries.
"It helps build up their
self-esteem when they have
the information we need to
capture this person,"
Maxwell said. "You have to
work with the victim
because you are in it togeth-
er and they have information
that is critical to the suspect's
capture."
Orlando Police
Detective Steven
Standaland, who has worked
with Maxwell twice in the
past few years, admires his
work and his willingness to
help out.
"He's a shining star for
UCF Police," Standaland
said. "He's very patient with
witnesses and very respon-
sive, and there aire rerharkl'-
able similarities between his
drawings and the suspects."
UCF Maj. Randy Mingo
said Maxwell's skills give
the university prestige.
"Of the 15 people in the
state with the skills, I'd say
Maxwell is in the top three as
far as talent and ability,"
Mingo said. "He's very valu-
able. When we have a crime
and good witnesses, we get
Maxwell out there fast. He's
good with witnesses, espe-
cially rape victims. He has a
calming effect, and his
sketches enhance our ability
to solve the crime."
Because there are so few
experts in the field, Mingo
says the department encour-
aged Maxwell to work with
other departments who
request his help.
Maxwell has endured
some teasing from his co-


workers for being "the cop
with crayons," but he's also
well-respected. He's trained
in crisis intervention and is
the first Hispanic supervisor
in the history of UCF Police,
according to Mingo.
The man isn't only
about his work. He loves art
by classical masters such as
Picasso and artists from his
mother's homeland, Puerto
Rico. He sculpts and paints
in his free time and has dec-
orated his children's .bed-
rooms with racing cars and
couture fashion. A few years
ago .an Orlando gallery
showed his work. It all sold,
he said. He also frequently
draws caricatures for charity
events.
So how did someone
with an artistic soul become
a police officer?
The New York native,
who moved to Florida with
.his f:,:l\ when he was 16,
.i Lked security at Walt
Disney World for a while
after he graduated from UCF
in 1990 with a degree in
Liberal Arts and a minor in
Engineering Technology. He
later worked as a teacher,
coach and administrator in
the Osceola County School
District.
"I was a gypsy of sorts,"
Maxwell said. "But I've
always liked solving puzzles
and finding details that peo-
ple often overlook at first
glance. I love teaching peo-
ple and I still do that by
training new officers. The
transition was easy."
Now with his sketch
training, he's blended his
love for art with his desire to
help get the bad guy.
"It's a perfect combina-
tion for me," Maxwell said.
"It's just perfect."


Crist Announces Additional Agency Leaders


TALLAHASSEE Governor Charlie
Crist has appointed Representative Holly
Benson as Secretary of the Department of
Business and Professional Regulation and
Leo DiBenigno as Secretary of the Florida
Lottery. Crist also announced Linda South
as Secretary of the Department of
Management Services and Leroy Collins, Jr.
as Executive Director of the Department of
Veterans' Affairs.
"Holly has a reputation of taking on the
toughest tasks while serving with passion
and integrity," said Governor Crist.
The Department of Business and
Professional Regulations controls the regis-
tration, availability and issuance of permits
and licenses for business activities in the
state. The mission of the agency is to ensure
that business, industry and commerce are
regulated in such a way that the best quality
of service is provided to Floridians and visi-
tors.
"I am thankful to Governor Crist for this
opportunity and I look forward to continuing
to serve the citizens of Florida, "said
Representative Benson. "I am eager to take
on the task of improving the services the
state provides to more than one million pro-
fessionals and businesses across some 200
licensee categories."
Holly Benson is a municipal bond attor-
ney with Miller, Canfield, Paddock and
Stone, P.L.C. She served as a member of the
Florida House of Representatives from
2000-2006.


"Leo's experience in several leadership
positions within the agency uniquely quali-
fies him for this position," said Governor
Crist. "Most recently as Deputy Secretary,
he helped lead the agency and has been
responsible for promoting and securing the
department's objectives related to policy,
legislation, budget and public affairs with
trust and integrity."
The Florida Lottery enables funds gen-
erated from the sale of State Lottery tickets
to be maximized in a way that benefits- the
welfare of all Floridians.
"It is important that we to continue to
implement the most effective business
strategies to increase education funding and
ensure the Florida Lottery remains one of the
top performing lotteries in the United
States," said DiBenigno. "I am grateful for
the opportunity ahd eager to begin the work
that lies ahead."
Leo DiBenigno is the Deputy Secretary
of the Florida Lottery.
"Leroy has the commitment, experience
in military service, and personal determina-
tion to lead this critical agency," said
Governor Crist.
The Department of Veterans' Affairs is
charged with advocating on behalf of
Florida's veterans and their family members.
The organization provides information on
education programs, acts as a liaison
between veterans and other governmental
organizations, and ensures that veterans
receive long term healthcare benefits.


"As a veteran of the United States Navy
I am humbled and honored by the privilege
to serve other servicemen and women
through this agency," said Collins.
Leroy Collins, Jr. serves on the boards
of Tampa General Hospital and the Armed
Services Financial Network.
Additionally Crist announced Linda H.
South, Director of the Agency for Workforce
Innovation, will serve as Secretary for the
Department of Management Services.
Kevin Hyde, who was previously announced
as incoming Secretary, has asked that his
nomination be withdrawn.
"Linda has served the state of Florida
well over the years and her experience in
business and management will be an asset to
DMS," said Governor Crist.
The Department of Management
Services focuses on state contracts and
human resource support as well as many ini-
tiatives to promote economic development
through partnerships with the private sector.
Other aspects of the agency include the
Commission on Human Relations, the
Division of Administrative Hearings, and the
Office of Supplier Diversity.
South added, "I look forward to the
challenge that lies ahead and am grateful to
Governor Crist for this opportunity. I am
excited about his vision for Florida and am
committed to developing an efficient and
cost-effective government."
Linda H. South is the Director of the
Agency for Workforce Innovation.

How many genes



does it take to



learn?




Lessons from sea



slugs


By John Pastor
UF

GAINESVILLE, Fla. -
Scientists analyzing the
genomics of a marine snail have
gotten an unprecedented look at
brain mechanisms, discovering
that the neural processes in even
a simple sea creature are far from
sluggish.
At any given time within
just a single brain cell of sea slug
known as Aplysia, more than
10,000 genes are active, accord-
ing to scientists writing in
Friday's (Dec. 29, 2006) edition
of the journal Cell. The findings
suggest that acts of learning or
the progression of brain disor-
ders do not take place in isola-
tion large clusters of genes
within an untold amount of cells
contribute to major neural
events.
"For the first time we pro-
vide a genomic dissection of the
memory-forming network," said
Leonid Moroz, a professor of
neuroscience and zoology at the
University of Florida Whitney
Laboratory for Marine
Bioscience. "We took advantage
of this powerful model of neuro-
biology and identified thousands
of genes operating within a sin-
gle neuron. Just during any sim-
ple event related to inemory for-
mation, we expect differences in
gene expression for at least 200
to 400 genes."
Researchers studied gene
expression in association with
specific networks controlling
feeding or defensive reflexes in
the sea slug. To their surprise,
they identified more than 100
genes similar to those associated
with all major human neurologi-
cal diseases and more than 600
genes controlling development,
confirming that molecular and
genomic events underlying key
neuronal functions were devel-
oped in early animal ancestors
and remained practically
unchanged for more than 530
million years of independent
evolution in the lineages leading
to men or sea slugs.
Moroz and his collaborators
uncovered new information that
suggest that gene loss in the evo-
lution of the nervous system is as
important as gene gain in terms
of adaptive strategies. They
believe that a common ancestor
of animals had a complex
genome and different genes con-
trolling brain or immune func-
tions were lost independently in
different lineages of animals,
including humans.
Until now, scientists have
been largely in the dark about
how genes control the generation
of specific brain circuitry and
how genes modify that circuitry
to enable learning and memory.
For that matter, little is known
about the genes that distinguish
one neuron from the next, even
though they may function quite
differently.
Molecular analyses of
Aplysia neuronal genes are shed-
ding light on these elusive
processes. In 2000, senior author
Dr. Eric Kandel, of Columbia
University in New York shared
the Nobel Prize in Physiology or
Medicine for his work using
Aplysia as a model of how mem-
ories are formed in the human
brain.
Despite its simple nervous
system Aplysia has about
10,000 large neurons that can be


easily identified, compared with
about one -hundred billion neu-
rons in humans the animal is
capable of learning and its brain
cells communicate in many ways
identical to human neural com-
munication.
In the new findings, scien-
tists identified more than
175,000 gene tags useful for
understanding brain functions,
increasing by more than 100
times the amount of genomic
information available for study,
according to Moroz and 22 other
researchers from UF and
Columbia University. More than
half of the genes have clear
counterparts in humans and can
be linked to a defined neuronal
circuitry, including a simple
memory-forming network.
"In the human brain there
are a hundred billion neurons,
each expressing at least 18,000
genes, and the level of expres-
sion of each gene is different,"
said Moroz, who is affiliated
with UF's Evelyn F. and William
L. McKnight Brain Institute and
the UF Genetics Institute.
"Understanding individual genes
or proteins is important, but this
is a sort of molecular alphabet.
This helps us learn the molecular
grammar, or a set of rules that
can control orchestrated activity
of multiple genes. If we are
going to understand memory or
neurological disease at the cellu-
lar level, we need to understand
the rules."
Scientists also analyzed 146
human genes implicated in 168
neurological disorders, including
Parkinson's and Alzheimer's dis-
eases, and genes controlling
aging and stem-cell differentia-
tion. They found 104 counterpart
genes in Aplysia, suggesting it
will be a valuable tool for devel-
oping treatments for neurode-
generative diseases.
"The authors have assem-
bled a tremendous amount of
data on gene transcripts associat-
ed with neuronal signaling path-
ways in Aplysia that sheds new
light on evolutionary relation-
ships of this very ancient and
highly successful marine ani-
mal," said Dennis Steindler,
executive director of UF's
McKnight Brain Institute, who
did not participate in the
research. "A very important part
of this study is the discovery of
novel genes not formerly associ-
ated with the mollusk genome
that include many associated
with neurological disorders."
The findings are especially
important for scientists using
mollusks in experimental sys-
tems, according to Edgar
Walters, a professor of integra-
tive biology and pharmacology
at the University of Texas
Medical School at Houston, who
was not involved in the research.
"Few animals other than
Aplysia allow scientists to relate
a molecular pathway directly to
the function of a cell, all in con-
text with an animal's behavior,"
Walters said. "In a mammal, it's
hard to identify and manipulate a
single cell and know what its
function is. With Aplysia, there
is direct access to whatever cell
you're interested in with just a
micropipette. As a scientist who
wants to know which molecules
are present in Aplysia for experi-
mental manipulation, I am very
happy to see this- paper come
out."

GAINESVILLE, Fla. Historic preservation
enhances the quality of life of Floridians through
economic and cultural contributions to an
improved sense of place, according to a new study
from the University of Florida.
"Determining a specific dollar value for qual-
ity of life is a challenging undertaking," said pro-
ject co-director Timothy McLendon, staff attorney
at the Center for Governmental Responsibility at
UF's Levin College of Law, which conducted the
study along with UF's Department of Urban and
Regional Planning. "Therefore, we offered local
decision makers a number of options for protect-
ing historically valuable assets that contribute to
the community."
Florida residents also recognize the impor-
tance of historic preservation, according to a sur-
vey commissioned as part of the overall study.
Based on surveys of more than 1,500 Floridians
during November and December 2005, and
January 2006, the. most threatened historic
resources in Florida include historic and scenic
landscapes; old homes and neighborhoods; and
old downtown. Respondents, likewise, saw a
need to preserve Florida's historic resources for
future generations, scenic reasons and education.
The survey was conducted by UF's Bureau of
Economic & Business Research as part of its
monthly statewide consumer confidence survey.
The report includes models and tools avail-
able to further historic preservation in Florida and
to measure the impact of historical structures,
events and related activities on the enhancement of
the quality of life in Florida.
Specifically, the use of community indicators
is described as a tool for decision-makers to mea-
sure their success in improving the quality of life
in their communities. Community indicators are
bits of information that are combined to provide a


picture of what is happening in a community. For
historic preservation purposes, these may include
items like the number or type of local ordinances;
the number of projects qualifying for historic tax
credits or exemptions; changes in property values;
numbers of historic districts; and visitors to and
support for local historic museums. Other tools
included in the report are preservation laws and
policies, tourist-related tax revenues, and creative
solutions to conflicts of gentrification, sustainabil-
ity and rehabilitation.
"We're excited to have this wonderful study
to confirm that along with the economic impacts
that result from historic preservation, the quality
of life is indeed improved as well," said Caroline
Tharpe Weiss, executive director of the Florida
Trust for Historic Preservation, which provided
key support for the study.
'Sprinkled throughout the report are examples
of model communities and projects that have suc-
ceeded in using the tools to enhance quality of life.
DeFuniak Springs and Fernandina Beach are
described as communities whose historic roots
lure tourists and improve the economies of their
regions. The St. Augustine Lighthouse and
Museum; the Fort Christmas Historical Park,in
Central Florida; and the Riley House museum near
Tallahassee are provided as case studies of how
history museums can be important community
resources.
Also described in the report are conservation
districts in Tampa, Sarasota and Zephyrhills that
offer ways for local governments to balance his-
toric preservation through protection, rehabilita-
tion and revitalization, all contributing to a neigh-
borhood's culture. Other incentive programs,
including tax credits and exemptions arid grants
have been key to preserving and improving
Florida communities.
