Barbaro's death



resonates throughout



sports community


Photo: Kathy Freeborn
Dr. Dean Richardson from the University of Pennsylvania's School of Veterinary Medicine walks a
healthy Barbaro from his stall in December, 2006. The university released a statement following
Barabaro's euthanizing saying, "We will remember Barbaro as a beautiful, magnificent, and brave horse."


By John Terrana
Staff Writer

"The love of horses knows not its own depth
til' the hour of separation."
No words could have ever rung more true on
Jan. 29, 2007, when the world of horse racing lost
,one of its brightest stars.
Barbaro, the
winner of the
2006 Kentucky
Derby, was eutha-
nized.
Barbaro's
health and recov-
ery was a roller-
coaster after .-
breaking a leg in
three different
places during the
2006 Preakness
Stakes. He
remained at The
University 'of
Pennsylvania's r
New Bolton
Center under the Barbaro with Edgar Prado, on
watch of Dr. Dean Dr. Ricahrdson in September, 20
Richardson and
his staff though the injury guaranteed young
Barbaro would never win a Triple Crown:
The subsequent attention on Barbaro's condi-
tion made him a favorite in the public eye.
Barbaro was bred in West Grove, Penn., by
Gretchen and Roy Jackson.
Jackson's grandfather was William Goodsell
Rockefeller, a former treasurer of the goliath
Standard Oil Company.
And the money certainly did not stop there.
Barbaro grossed over $2-million during his career.
Even those unfamiliar with horse racing were
aware of the young thoroughbred's unstable con-


e
0C


edition and were hoping for the best.
Unfortunately, all hope was lost on Monday.
For the uninitiated, Barbaro was like Michael
Vick to the NFL, or maybe a young Michael
Jordan, just getting his start in the NBA only to
have it all taken away by an injury.
Some believed that Barabaro, like many
young athletes, was born to race. Neither. of
Barbaro's jockeys,
S:Edgar Prado and
Jose Caraballo, ever
rode Barabaro out-
side of the race
track.
S Barbaro's front
7 legs were stricken

ing Jan. 27 and Jan.

Impossible for him

ers decided it was
best to let him go.
Since his break-
down at the

flowers, and gifts
from other well-wishers. The question of his final
resting place remains to be seen.
Churchill Downs, which is close to Barbaro's
finest moment at the Kentucky Derby, is one
option being considered. Another option is burial
at the Jackson's Lael Farm the same place of his
birth.
Wherever he is buried is inconsequential. It is
said that the brightest stars burn the quickest and it
will be a long time before horse racing sees anoth-
er star shine with the magnitude that Barbaro had.
He leaves behind a legacy that feels unfin-
ished.

Pinellas County students


put their public speaking


skills on display


By Ricardo Gordillo
Staff Writer
LARGO, Fla. -- Out of 2,500 entries, 14 ele-
mentary and middle school students' stood behind
the lectern to compete in the final round of the 4-
H/Tropicana Public Speaking Contest on Jan. 30.
Topics ranged from personal tragedy to the
history of Walt Disney. One student's topic con-
cerned carrots and the vegetable's color. Did you
know carrots aren't originally orange?
The premise of the speech competition is to
assist students in developing their self-confidence
in speaking in front of large groups, a skill many'
adults lack, said Janet Golden, the 4-H Program
Leader for Pinellas County.
The three-minute speeches are scored on
composition and presentation by a panel of four
judges. Scoring can get close, Golden said.
Winning and losing often hinges on half a point.
Golden feels fortunate that confrontations
with parents who are frustrated with the scoring
rarely occur in Pinellas County. Parents seeking to
know why their child didn't place can receive sug-
gestions on how their student may improve his or
her performance, but score cards filled out by
judges at the competition are never released.
"We don't want to focus on numbers," Golden
said. "We want to focus on the experience... The
experience I want these kids to walk away with is
this fabulous skill of public speaking. If they have
gotten to this point, they already won."
Judges for the competition were 'Robert
Stewart, Sandy Herron, Jane Muhrlin and Cindi
Crisi.
Mariel Levine, a fifth-grader from Pinellas
County Jewish Day, won first place at the elemen-
tary school level for her speech entitled "Be
Quiet."


"I've heard 'Mariel, hush!' so many times that
I thought it was my first name!" she said in her
speech. She admits she talks a lot, but found it
easy to keep her speech under three minutes.
"I believe this is the first time Mariel's ever
been speechless," Golden said after announcing
her name.
Meggie Dougherty-Howard, a sixth-grader
from Blessed Sacrament, took home the first place
plaque at the middle school level for her speech
entitled "Caught by an Angel." She recounted the
time she fell 15 feet and survived without breaking
a bone. She believed an angel had saved her and
argued that such experiences are not uncommon.
Both Levine and Dougherty-Howard will
receive a roving trophy for their school to display
until next year, a plaque and a scholarship to be
used at the Pinellas County 4-H Summer
Overnight Camp at the Ocala National Forest (a
$175.00 value).
The event, sponsored in part by the University
of Florida and Pinellas County, was held at.the
Pinellas County Extension at 12520 Ulmerton
Road.
At the elementary school level, Mariel Levine
took first place; Abby Creighton took second;
Alyssa Coburn took third; arid Katie Flanagan
took fourth.
At the middle school level, Meggie
Dougherty-Howard took first place; Jesse Sololov
took second; Sara Macke took third; and Gabby
Newman took fourth.
Also taking part in the competition were
Colleen Lachnicht, Clayton Spilman, Laura
Bowen, Madison Austrich, Camille Torres, Abby
Creighton.

FSU philosopher wins grant to study how

brain initiates action


By Jill Elish
FSU

Alfred Mele, the William H. and Lucyle T.
Werkmeister Professor of Philosophy at Florida
State University, has just received a 2007-08
National Endowment for the Humanities
Fellowship to write a book that combines recent
data in neuroscience and social and cognitive psy-
chology with the philosophy of action.

Mele said he intends to debunk exaggerated
claims about what the new scientific data show.
For example, one neurobiologist contends that the
brain decides to initiate actions about a third of a
second before the person becomes aware of it and
the .remaining window of opportunity for "free


will" in producing actions is tiny-about 100 mil-
liseconds.
Another says "conscious intentions" play no
role in producing actions.
"When it comes to human action, conceptual
and empirical work are much more productive in
combination than either is on its own," Mele said
in his grant proposal.
The $40,000 fellowship will allow Mele to
write the book, his seventh, during a 2007-08 sab-
batical leave from FSU. The fellowships are high-
ly competitive; only 153 of the nearly 1,400 pro-
posals received funding this year. This is not
Mele's first NEH fellowship, however. He also
received awards in 1985-86, 1992-93 and 1999-
2000.

Dollars spent on

entitlements could


instead boost economy


For Americans, the good times are rolling., Our economy is
buzzing, with some 5 million new jobs created just since 2003.
Unemployment is 4.5 percent, a near-historic low and even lower
than during the boom years of the late 1990s. Meanwhile, tax rev-
enues are soaring, up 11.8 percent in a year. Even inflation is under
control. Consumer prices increased just 2.5 percent last year, the
lowest rate in three years.
But storm clouds are on the horizon. To extend the benefits of
today's economy to our children and grandchildren, we'll need to fix
our entitlement system.
Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke made exactly that
point last week. In testimony before the Senate Budget Committee,
he warned lawmakers that they need to fix our entitlement system.
"If early and meaningful action is not taken," Bernanke said, "the
U.S. economy could be seriously weakened, with future generations
bearing much of the cost."
How bad could it get? Today, federal spending amounts to 20.3
percent of gross domestic product, about the same level it's been for
about 50 years. That's far too high -- government is spending too
much and trying to do too many things that individuals ought to do
for themselves. Last year alone, Washington spent some $23,281
per household. But it is, barely, sustainable at this level.
Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid spending, however, is
on autopilot. And when the baby boomers start retiring, those enti-
tlement programs will start climbing and won't stop. By 2050, the
Congressional Budget Office estimates, federal spending could
reach almost 40 percent of GDP -- twice today's level.
As Bernanke noted, that "would spark a fiscal crisis, which
could be addressed only by very sharp spending cuts or tax increas-
es, or both." So how can we prevent this crisis? Two ways: growing
the economy and reducing federal spending.
As we've seen in recent years, when GDP rises, tax revenues
rise as well. Last year's budget deficit, for example, came in $175
billion smaller than predicted because our economy's phenomenal
growth generated larger tax receipts.
A big reason GDP is up is the pro-growth 2003 tax cuts, which
reduced marginal tax rates on work, savings and investment. To lock
in those gains and encourage future growth, lawmakers should act
quickly to freeze those rates -- otherwise they'll automatically shoot
back up to the old, growth-stifling levels.
In addition, Congress should start reforming the tax code to
block other automatic tax hikes. Among the items on this to-do list:
speedy repeal of the Alternative Minimum Tax. Unless lawmakers
act soon, the number of,tax filers, facing the AMITT \ ill jump from
3:5 million last Near toi as: many as 23,4,milli on this year;-- roughly;
one of every six tax filers.
Such simple fixes to the code would spark faster economic
growth. But policymakers also need to .address the out-of-control
federal spending that fuels our nation's long-term financial problem.
Discretionary federal spending -- money that lawmakers chose
to spend -- has soared 49 percent since 2001. Some of that came as
a response to 9/11. But nearly half of the increase went for non-
defense programs. In recent years, lawmakers have poured billions
more into education (without measurable improvements) and passed
a bloated transportation bill that contains plenty of pork but few new
solutions for traffic congestion.
And that doesn't count mandatory, spending for entitlements
and other programs, such as farm subsidies, which have been boost-
ed repeatedly, or the Medicare drug benefit. Remember: Every dol-
lar Washington spends is another dollar not being spent more pro-
ductively in the private economy.
It's time to heed Bernanke's warning. If we act now to reduce
spending and fix entitlements, we can prevent the few economic
clouds in the sky from becoming a full-fledged storm that would
destroy our prosperity.

THEMIS will judge what causes



highly dynamic aurora


II I il 11lla l *l*tlll mll *. I Mi4 Mil I-^-. , .

These are photos of the aurora before and during a substorm. The left image is the typical appearance of the aurora before a substorm.
During a substorm, the single auroral ribbon may split into several ribbons (middle image) or even break into clusters that race north and
south (right image).


On a clear night over the far northern areas of the world, you
may witness a hauntingly beautiful light display in the sky that can
disrupt your satellite TV and leave you in the dark.
The eerie glow of the northern lights seems exquisite and quite
harmless. Most times, it is harmless. The display, resembling a slow-
moving ribbon silently undulating in the sky, is called the aurora. It
is also visible in far southern regions around the South Pole.
Occasionally, however, the aurora becomes much more dynam-
ic. The single auroral ribbon may split into several ribbons or even
break into clusters that race north and south. This dynamic light
show in the polar skies is associated with what scientists call a mag-
netospheric substorm.
Substorms are very closely related to full-blown space storms
that can disable spacecraft, radio communication, GPS navigation,
and power systems while supplying killer electrons to the radiation
belts surrounding Earth. The purpose of NASA's Time History of
Events and Macroscale Interactions during Substorms (THEMIS)
mission is to understand the physical instability (trigger mechanism)
for magnetospheric substorms.
A clash of forces we can't see with the human eye causes the
beauty and destruction of space storms, though the aurora provides
a dramatic symptom. Earth's molten iron core generates an invisible
magnetic field that surrounds our planet. This magnetic field and the
electrically charged matter under its control compbse the Earth's
magnetosphere.
The sun constantly blows an invisible stream of electrically
charged gas, called the solar wind, into space.
The solar wind flows at very high speed past the Earth and its
magnetosphere. In order to visualize what happens when the solar
wind buffets the Earth's magnetosphere, imagine a windsock in a
gale force wind.
The Earth's magnetosphere captures and stores small fractions
of the colliding solar wind energy and particles on magnetic field
lines that stretch like rubber bands.
During substorms, the solar wind overloads the magnetosphere
with too much energy and the stretched magnetic field lines snap
ba'cl like an enormouss slingshot, energizing and flinging electrical-
ly charged particles towards Earth.
Electrons, the particles that carry electric currents in everything
from TVs to cell phones, stream down invisible lines of magnetic
force into the upper atmosphere over the polar regions. This stream
of electrons hits atoms and molecules in the upper atmosphere, ener-
gizing them and causing them to glow with the light we know as the
aurora.
The same electrons sometimes charge spacecraft surfaces,
resulting in unexpected and unwanted electrical discharges. And
those electrons that enter the radiation belts can ultimately find their
energies boosted to levels millions of times more energetic than the
photons that comprise the light we can see.
'Electrons with these energies can damage sensitive electronics
on spacecraft and rip through molecules in living cells, potentially
causing cancer in unshielded astronauts. Rapidly varying magnetic
fields associated with magnetospheric substorms also induce elec-
tric currents in power lines that can cause blackouts by overloading
equipment or causing short circuits.


Although the consequences of substorms are well-known, it is
not clear exactly what finally snaps in the overloaded magnetos-
phere to trigger a substorm.
Understanding what happens during substorms is important.
"The worst space storms, the ones that knock-out spacecraft and
endanger astronauts, could be just a series of substorms, one after
the other," said David Sibeck of NASA's Goddard Space Flight
Center in Greenbelt, Md., project scientist for the THEMIS mission.
"Substorms could be the building block of severe space storms."
Just like meteorologists who study tornadoes to understand the
most severe thunderstorms, space physicists study substorms for
insight into the most severe space storms.
"Substorm processes are fundamental to our understanding of
space' weather and how it affects satellites and humans in the mag-
netosphere," said Vassilis Angelopoulos, THEMIS principal investi-
gator at the University of California's Berkeley Space Sciences
Laboratory, in Berkeley, Calif. Scientists propose two possible trig-
gers for substorms, but until now, there has been no way to distin-
guish between the two models.
Discerning between the two proposed substorm trigger mecha-
nisms is difficult because the magnetosphere is so large. Over
Earth's night (solar wind down-stream) side, the solar wind stretch-
es the magnetosphere far past the moon's orbit, to form the geomag-
netic tail.
Substorms start from a small region in space inside the geo-
magnetic tail, but within minutes cover a vast region of the magne-
tosphere. However, the two proposed trigger mechanisms predict
substorm onset in distinctly different locations within the geomag-
netic tail, so the key to solving this mystery lies in identifying the
substorm point of origin.
Previous single-spacecraft studies of the Earth's magnetosphere
have been unable to pinpoint where and when substorms begin,
leading to extensive scientific debate on the topic.
.However, NASA's THEMIS mission will solve this mystery
with coordinated measurements from a fleet of five identical satel-
lites, strategically placed in key positions in themagnetosphere, in
order to isolate the point of Substorm:6otiginThe mission'named for
Themis, the'blindfolded Greek Goddess of Order and Justice, will-
resolve this debate like a fair, impartial judge.
THEMIS is scheduled for launch in February. When the five
probes align over the North American continent, scientists will col-
lect coordinated measurements down-stream of Earth, along the
sun-Earth line, allowing the first comprehensive look at the onset of
substorms and how they trigger auroral eruptions. Over the mis-
sion's two-year lifetime, the probes should be able to observe some
30 substorms. -
Down-stream alignments have been carefully planned to occur
over North America once every four days. For about 15 hours sur-
rounding the alignments, 20 ground stations in Canada and Alaska
with automated all-sky cameras will document the aurora from
Earth.
The combined spacecraft and ground observations will give sci-
entists the first comprehensive look at the phenomena from Earth's
upper atmosphere to far into space, enabling researchers to pinpoint
where and when substorm initiation begins.

'Hidden-hero' microbes


clean toxic sites


By Libby Fairhurst
FSU

Buried under 243 acres in
an East Tennessee valley adja-
cent to the Oak Ridge National
Laboratory's 'Y-12 National
Security Complex, toxic waste
from weapons manufacturing at
the facility between 1951 and
1983 leaches into groundwater
that extends in radioactive
plumes for miles from the conta-
minated site.
But soon, Florida State
University Associate Professor
Joel Kostka and his FSU
oceanography department team
will help clean up the mess.
During the course of a forth-
coming five-year study funded
by the U.S. Department of
Energy, FSU researchers will be
testing a natural method called
bioremediation-the stimulation
of naturally occurring microbes
that Kostka calls "hidden
heroes"-to promote bacterial
growth in the soil subsurface
that scrubs it of potentially dead-
ly radioactive metal.
If bioremediation proves
successful on the uranium, tech-
netium, nitrate and other poten-
tially lethal leftovers at the Oak
Ridge site, the process should
work to mitigate contamination
at more than 7,000 other sites
nationwide-and do so more
economically and effectively
than most conventional meth-
ods.
"The stakes are high and the
impact potentially huge," Kostka
said.
Together, those 7,000 U.S.
sites encompass an estimated 1.7
trillion gallons of contaminated
water-that's about four times
the nation's daily water con-
sumption-and about 40 million
cubic meters of contaminated
soil.
Kostka has a five-year, $1
million share of the total $15
million in U.S. DOE funding for
the project, which includes
research teams from FSU and


multiple universities and nation-
al laboratories across the coun-
try.
Together, the partners will
develop models to help predict
the rate at which contamination
levels drop when using natural
methods such as bioremediation
and artificial techniques such as
chemical additions and pH
adjustments.
Subsurface changes are
monitored using geophysical
methods that send acoustic, elec-
tric and other signals into the
ground.
Kostka's research team from
FSU's nationally top-10-ranked
oceanography department will
lead the "subsurface microbiolo-
gy" portion of the project.
"Radioactive metal contam-
ination such as that found at the
Oak -Ridge Field Research
Center (ORFRC) where we will
be working is a huge global
issue," Kostka said.
"It affects not only the U.S.
but in particular, also Eastern
Europe, Canada and South
America, and the costs of
cleanup are projected in the bil-
lions if not trillions of dollars in
the U.S. alone.
"As it now stands, bioreme-
diation, which is potentially
much cheaper than current tech-
nologies, has not been used
much at all, but it should be," he
said.
"Subsurface aquifers, where
most of the radioactive contami-
nation resides, are' primary
sources of groundwater used for
drinking, and contaminated
aquifers tend to be extreme envi-
ronments where microorganisms
dominate.
These microbes are the 'hid-
den heroes' that do the work of
bioremediation. Our new project
will provide the basic science
necessary to deploy bioremedia-.
tion technologies at the scales
necessary for them to be effec-
tive at U.S. DOE sites."

GAINESVILLE, Fla. -A University of Florida-led
study has determined that Titanis walleri, a prehistoric 7-
foot-tall flightless "terror bird," arrived in North
America from South America long before a land bridge
connected the two continents.
UF paleontologist Bruce MacFadden said his team
used an established geochemical technique that analyzes
rare earth elements in a new application to revise the
ages of terror bird fossils in Texas and Florida, the only
places in North America where the species has been
found. Rare earth elements are a group of naturally
occurring metallic elements that share similar chemical
and physical properties.
"It was previously thought that Titanis immigrated
to Texas across the Panamanian land bridge, that formed
about 3 million years ago connecting North and South
America," said MacFadden, a curator of vertebrate pale-
ontology at the Florida Museum of Natural History at
UF. "But the rare earth element analysis of a fossil
Titanis bone from Texas determines its age to be 5 mil-.
lion years old. This shows that the bird arrived 2 million
years before the land bridge formed, probably across
islands that formed what today is the Isthmus of
Panama.".
The study will be published Jan. 23 in the online
version of the journal Geology and featured in its
February print edition.
The terror bird was carnivorous, weighed about 330
pounds, had powerful feet and a head larger than a
man's. It is known in the fossil record from a single toe
bone in Texas, and in Florida by about 40 bone frag-
ments from different skeletal regions. MacFadden's
team also analyzed six specimens "from the Santa Fe
River in north Central Florida.
"We found that the Titanis fossils were 2 million
years old and not 10,000 years old as had been suggest-


ed," MacFadden said. "This also shows the last known
occurrence of Titanis in the fossil record and reflects its
extinction."
When an animal dies, its porous bones absorb
groundwater as they fossilize. As the local groundwater
conditions change, the rare earth elements' concentra-
tions change, resulting in a unique chemical signature.
"We used rare earth elements because they're high-
ly specific to certain time periods and different ground-
water conditions," MacFadden said. "This is the first
time that the uptake of rare earth elements during the
early stage of fossilization has been used to determine
the age of fossils in North America."
Geologists have used the technique to study igneous
and metamorphic rocks, but only one other researcher
worldwide has applied this technique to date the age of
fossils: professor Clive Trueman from the University of
Southampton in England.
"It is very difficult to assess the age of fossil bones
directly as they are too old to be carbon dated," Trueman
wrote in an e-mail. "Bones can also be moved after
death, further confusing their true age. MacFadden's
approach compares bones of disputed age with those of
known age. If the chemistry matches, the bones are of
the same age irrespective of their final resting place."
David Grandstaff, a professor and chairman of the
geology department at Temple University, said the tech-
nique is timely and important.
"If a fossil gets moved or reworked from its place of
formation, it will have a fingerprint that is different from
the others nearby," Grandstaff said. "Who knew that all
these fossils essentially have a tag that says 'hey, I'm
from over here!' "
Co-authors of the study include Richard Hulbert Jr.
of the Florida Museum of Natural History; Joann Labs-
Hochstein, who at the time of the study was a postdoc-
toral student of MacFadden's; and Jon Baskin of Texas
A&M University.

ST. PETERSBURG Fla. -- The Tampa Bay Devil
Rays have expanded the Rays the Grades student-per-
formance program to include the Pasco County
Education Foundation. The Rays the Grades program
was launched in 2006 in partnership with the Pinellas
and Hillsborough County Education Foundations, both
of which will continue to participate in the program this
year.
Rays ,the Grades is intended to challenge every stu-
dent to improve in school by providing free tickets to
Rays home games at Tropicana Field. Nearly 300,000
students will be included in the second-year program.
Sixteen games have been selected by the Rays for this
plan. Family members will be offered a reduced-price
ticket to accompany the student. Each student will also
receive a bookmark featuring Raymond, the team's mas-
cot.
"The community's response to the launch of our
Rays the Grades program was overwhelmingly positive.
It received high marks from students, parents, and edu-
cators alike," said Rays President Matt Silverman.
"We're excited about expanding the program this year
into Pasco County, and we anticipate extending the pro-
gram further throughout our region in the coming years."
This program is scheduled to run during the month
of March. Officials from each school will determine
which area of student performance they would.like to


target for their students. At the end of the month, each
school will report the results and accomplishments to
their respective education foundations and select schools
will receive special recognition from the Rays.
"The Pasco Education Foundation is extremely
pleased to partner with the Tampa Bay Devil Rays in the.
Rays the Grades program," said Chip Wichmanowski,
Executive Director, Pasco Education Foundation.
"Implementing this program in our K-8 classrooms will
assist us in helping each child in our Pasco County pub-
lic schools reach their highest potential."
"We thank the Rays for their continued support of
Hillsborough County schools by continuing the Rays the
Grades program," said Bill Hoffman, President,
Hillsborough Education Foundation. "This is an invalu-
able way for principals to be able to reinforce the good
things their students are accomplishing. We look for-
ward to continuing to work with the Rays to strengthen
our community."
"The Tampa Bay Devil Rays are a longtime partner
Sof the Pinellas Education Foundation and the Rays the
Grades is another example of their commitment to this
community and the students of Pinellas County


Schools," said Terry
Education Foundation.

Attorney General urges





caution in wake of ID





theft from florida stores


TALLAHASSEE Attorney General Bill
McCollum today issued a consumer alert following the
recent theft of data involving customers' information
from numerous Florida stores. Consumers who may
have used credit cards at TJ Maxx, Marshalls, AJ Wright
or HomeGoods stores between May 2003 and December
2006 should closely monitor their financial statements
and credit reports, McCollum cautioned.
TJX Companies, Inc., the parent company of TJ
Maxx, Marshalls, HomeGoods and A.J. Wright stores,
recently reported that its computer systems were hacked
late last year and customer data had ,been stolen.
Company officials said the hackers broke into a system
that manages credit and debit card transactions as well as
checks and merchandise returns for customers through-
out the United States and possibly elsewhere. It is not yet
known how much or what kind of information may have
been taken. Florida has 55 T.J. Maxx stores, 60
Marshalls stores, 22 HomeGoods stores and two A.J.
Wright stores.


"Identity theft steals not only money, but also a per-
son's good name and reputation," McCollum said. "I am
pleased that this company is working diligently to pro-
tect its customers. I encourage all Floridians to be aware
and active in protecting themselves."
According to TJX, the company has identified con-
sumers whose credit card and other purchase informa-
tion has been accessed by unauthorized third parties. The
company has also notified affected credit card compa-
nies and banks. Affected consumers may call TJX's toll-
free special assistance number, 1-866-484-6978. For
more information, please visit
http://www.tjx.com/tjx_message.html.
If you believe you are a victim of identity theft,
report this to the police and then request that the nation-
al credit bureaus place a fraud alert on your credit report.
Notify banks and creditors involved of questionable
charges or accounts. Keep records of all telephone calls
and follow up in writing with credit bureaus, banks and
creditors.

By Jill Elish

After the skeletal remains of an 18,000-year-
old, "Hobbit"-sized human were discovered on the
Indonesian island of Flores in 2003, some scien-
tists thought that the specimen must have been a
pygmy or a microcephalic-a human with an
abnormally small skull.
Not so, said Dean Falk, a world-renowned
paleoneurologist and chair of Florida State
University's anthropology department, who, along
with an international team of experts, created
detailed maps of imprints left on the ancient
hominid's braincase and concluded that the so-
called Hobbit was actually a new species closely
related to Homo sapiens.
Now after further study, Falk is absolutely
convinced that her team was right and that the
species cataloged as LB1, Homo floresiensis, is
definitely not a human born with microcephalia-
a somewhat rare pathological condition that still
occurs today.
Usually the result of a double-recessive gene,
the condition is characterized by a small head and
accompanied by some mental retardation.
"We have answered the people who contend
that the Hobbit is a microcephalic," Falk said of
her team's study of both normal and microcephal-
ic human brains published in the Jan. 29 issue of
the journal PNAS (Proceedings of the National
Academy of Sciences of the United States).
The debate stemmed from the fact that
archaeologists had found sophisticated tools and
evidence of a fire near the remains of the 3-foot-
tall adult female with a brain roughly' one-third the
size of a contemporary human.
"People refused to believe that someone with
that small a brain could make the tools. How could
it be a sophisticated new species?"
But that's exactly what it is, according to Falk,
-whose team had previously created a "virtual
endocast" from a three-dimensional computer
model of the Hobbit's braincase, which.reproduces
the surface of the brain, including its shape,
grooves, vessels and sinuses. The endocasts


revealed large parts of the frontal lobe and other
anatomical features consistent with higher cogni-
tive processes.
"LB 1 has a highly evolved brain," she said. "It
didn't get bigger, it got rewired and reorganized,
and that's very interesting."
In this latest study, the researchers compared
3-D, computer-generated reconstructions of nine
microcephalic modern human brains and 10 nor-
mal modern human brains.
They found that certain shape features com-
pletely separate the two groups and that the Hobbit
classifies with normal humans rather than micro-
cephalic humans in these features. In other ways,
however, the Hobbit's brain is unique, which is
consistent with its attribution to a new species.
Comparison of two areas in the frontal lobe,
the temporal lobe and the back of the brain show
the Hobbit brain is nothing like a microcephalic's
and is advanced in a way that is different from liv-
ing humans.
In fact, the LB1 brain was the "antithesis" of
the microcephalic brain, according to Falk, a find-
ing the researchers hope puts this part of the
Hobbit controversy to rest.
It's time to move on to other important ques-
tions, Falk said, namely the origin of this species
that co-existed at the same time that Homo sapiens
was presumed to be the Earth's sole human inhab-
itant.
"It's the $64,000 question: Where did it come
from?" she said. "Who- did it descend from, who
are its relatives, and what does it say about human
evolution? That's the real excitement about this
discovery."
Falk's co-authors on the PNAS paper, "Brain
shape in human microcephalics and Homo flore-
siensis," are Charles Hildebolt, Kirk Smith and
Fred Prior of the Washington University School of
Medicine in St. Louis;. M.J. Morwood of the
University of New England in Australia; Thomas

ST. X
PETERS-
BURG, FL -
Heading into
its 30th year, :
American
Stage has
entered into a
partnership
with the St.
Petersburg
College that
will build the
theatre a brand
new, state of
the art 200-seat
performance
space on 3rd
Street North
and 2nd
Avenue North
in the heart of The new American Stage Theatre
downtown St.
Petersburg. "Imagine a new building three blocks
from our current home, next to the new Progress
Energy Building. It will overlook Williams Park,
and it will likely house the Florida International
Museum, perhaps another cultural institution to be
named later..:and a brand new, $4 million state of
the art theatre that will be the new home for the
American Stage Theatre Company," said Todd
Olson, American Stage's producing artistic direc-
tor.
This will be the first new theatre built for a
professional theatre company ever in St.
Petersburg.
Several factors have contributed to the the-
atre's move. First, with the rapid increase in


Mainstage Series attendance, which has grown 40
percent in three years, the theatre needed more
seating and a larger lobby. The theatre also need-
ed class room space for its growing education
department and more office space for its staff.
"We will have a much larger lobby, more
comfortable seating with no obstructed views, a
greater number of bathroom facilities, and, best of
all, hundreds of parking spaces in three parking
garages, all within a single block of the new loca-
tion," said Olson.
"Another positive, our financial relationship
with the college will give our theatre a kind of sta-
bility it has never had that ensures that we'll be ,
around for another 30 years...and beyond!"

Pensecola man banned from hunting for life


An 18-year-old Pensacola man now knows
citizens of his area and the local courts have little
tolerance for repeated wildlife crimes.
Joshua Wayne Douglas and a 16-year-old
Milton youth faced a Santa Rosa County judge last
week after Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) officers charged them with
killing three small spotted fawns on Christmas
Eve near Munson on Division of Forestry proper-
ty and shooting from a roadway. A Wildlife Alert
tip led officers to the pair.
Douglas pled guilty and was sentenced to 120
days in jail and 30 hours of community service,
fined $1,000 and ordered to pay $330 court costs,
had his hunting privileges revoked for life and for-
feited the shotgun used to kill the deer. The juve-
nile received probation.
It was Douglas' second time before a Santa
Rosa County judge in the past two months for
shooting deer illegally or at night. He and an
accomplice were charged Nov. 5 for night hunting
deer after the pilot of an FWC airplane and ground


units spotted the pair as they attempted to shoot a
deer using a spotlight.
In that case, Douglas had to pay $500 in fines
and court costs, was sentenced to 10 hours of com-
munity service and had his hunting license sus-
pended for three years.
The other hunter was fined $1,353.50 and
ordered to perform 30 hours of community ser-
vice, and his hunting license was suspended for
three years.
A new Florida law allows local courts to deal
seriously with repeat offenders. When repeat
offenders' violations occur within specified times,
they face tougher penalties with each conviction.
"This just shows the serious attitude the crim-
inal justice system takes with wildlife law viola-
tions," said FWC Capt. Mary Sumner, who super-
vises officers in Escambia, Santa Rosa, Okaloosa
and Walton counties.
"In this case there were three small fawns that
a number of locals had gotten used to seeing as
they drove by the property every day."


By Cathy Keen
U F
GAINESVILLE, Fla. No state is as open
as it could be in informing the public about the
presence of convicted sex offenders in the neigh-
borhood, new University of Florida research finds.
Indiana was rated the best state in providing
information' about sex offenders on the Internet
while Hawaii, Nebraska and South Dakota were
rated the least forthcoming by the Marion
Brechner Citizen Access Project in UF's College
of Journalism and Communications. Florida was
rated 35th.
"Parents can look at the project's Web site and
say 'this is a state that provides more information
than anyone else' or 'these states don't provide
information," said Bill Chamberlin, director of the
Citizen Access Project and Joseph Brechner
Eminent Scholar of Freedom of Information. "We
tracked distribution of sex offender information
because it was the subject of a recent Supreme
Court opinion and we knew it was a topic a lot of
citizens are interested in."
The UF project is the first to systematically
rate state laws on the accessibility to information
about sex offenders, Chamberlin said.
States were ranked on a scale of one to seven,
with one being "completely closed" and seven
being "completely open." Indiana rated a five,
"somewhat open." While no state received a rating
of one, the three lowest Hawaii, Nebraska and
South Dakota-- scored a two and were described
as "mostly closed." ,
Florida, where there has been several highly
publicized cases involving sex offenders in recent
years, rated a "four," which is "neither more open
nor more closed."
Indiana, the state rated most open, requires
sex offender information to be posted on-line with
stringent language, such as "must" or "shall"
instead of "may," said Courtney Barclay, a UF
doctoral student in media law who helped prepare
the Web site.
Whether the data about sex offenders "had to
be posted," or was simply allowed to be posted,
was one of the four subcategories making up the
overall rating.
States also were rated on the kind of personal
information available about an offender, such as a
physical description, current address and occupa-
tion; administration and procedures, which among


other things specifies which government agency is
responsible for developing and maintaining the
Web site; and sex offender classification, the types
of offenders who have their information placed
online.
North Carolina, Colorado and Arizona ranked
most open for the mandate to distribute sex
offender information. They received a five for
"somewhat open." Indiana, Wisconsin and New
Jersey placed highest in maximizing the personal
information available and received a six for "mqst-
ly open."
Indiana, Kansas and Kentucky had the best
scores six and "mostly open" for providing
information about sex offenders. In the adminis-
tration and procedures category, all of the states
received either a four for "neither more open nor
more closed," or three for "somewhat closed."
"All our project does is rate laws according to
whether they are more open or closed,"
Chamberlin said. "We don't pretend to make a
value judgment on the best or worst laws because
this is a very complicated subject.
"More information about sex offenders may
not be necessarily better, depending on each indi-
vidual's values," he said. "On the one hand it cer-
tainly is a compelling argument that parents need
to know when repeat sex offenders are living near-
by so they can take adequate precautions, but in
some states a person can be classified as a sex
offender for having had a consensual intimate rela-
tionship with someone under age 30 years ago.
"Society also has a real interest in rehabilita-
tion of sex offenders and We don't want to drive
people who make one mistake many years ago into
a position where they have no way to live a new
life because they can't get beyond their past," he
said.
In 2003, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that
photos of convicted sex offenders could be posted
online, refuting claims that such publicity was
unconstitutional because it constituted a second
punishment and was a form of double jeopardy.
A federal law passed in August goes beyond
what many states have required to be posted on the
Internet. States have three years to conform to the
federal law. In the meantime, substantial differ-
ences exist in various state requirements, which
are spelled out on the project's Web site,
Chamberlin said.

DeBary resident Joe Stokes had a shocker of a day, deer hunt-
ing on public land Nov. 12. He shot not one, but two, quality deer
(and that's not all there is to the story) during an early morning hunt
on a wildlife management area (WMA). He's not divulging which
WMA.
But the really exceptional thing about Stokes' hunt was one of
the deer was a hermaphrodite, meaning it had male and female sex
organs.
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC)
senior wildlife technician Tim Farley logged the deer in at the area's
check station and noticed the anomaly. Furthermore, Farley
checked in a 6-point the day before from the same WMA, which
also was a hermaphrodite. After close inspection, Farley said both
deer were 3-V2 years old and had never been bred.
"I've been doing this for 27 years, and I've only come across
three deer that were 'true' hermaphrodites those having all of the
male and female sex organs," Farley said. "The first one I saw was
in 1992 from Taylor County and now two in one weekend."
FWC biologist and deer management coordinator Robert
Vanderhoof, Ph.D., said deer that are true hermaphrodites are
extremely rare.
Stokes said he's been hunting the area in Sumter County since
1962 and has taken some nice bucks there over the past few years,
but nothing like this has ever happened to him in past hunts.
His honeyhole's an opening within a live oak hammock in the
middle of a palmetto-blanketed, planted pine island, surrounded by
cypress ponds. It's usually difficult to access unless you're willing
to wade through chest-deep water amid a few big gators. But this
season, Stokes said, the water's as low as he's seen it in 40 years,
and he was able to get a ladder stand there before the season start-
ed.
The area's used mainly by deer-dog hunters, and that morning,
Stokes got to, his stand 30 minutes before first light. A half-hour
after daybreak, Stokes could hear the sound of hunters searching the
roads for fresh buck tracks as their dogs barked from within their
dog boxes.


He then saw a 9-point get up and start slipping along a trail
between the pines and pond 50 yards away probably triggered by
the dogs' barking. Stokes shot the deer once with his Browning 12-
gauge, 3-inch magnum shotgun and dropped it where it stood.
Both deer barely missed qualifying for Florida's Buck Registry, but
Stokes definitely took two trophies off public land that day, and -
experienced a unique phenomenon.
"I've never paid money to belong to a hunting club, nor have I
ever paid to hunt anywhere," Stokes said proudly.
