FSEC solar trailer



provides emergency



power to storm victims


By Ed Heiland
UCF
When killer tornadoes destroyed the mobile
home of Joe DeMar earlier this month, the Lake
County man just managed to escape with his life.
But in the hours after the storm, he faced another
crisis: no electricity to power his nebulizer, an
electric device that pumps oxygen and misted
medication into his damaged lungs.
Before state or federal help arrived, Joe got a
visit from Bill Young with UCF's Florida Solar
Energy Center asking if his solar-power generator
could help him out.
The Photovoltaic, or PV, disaster trailer has a
large, flat solar panel that charges several batteries
during the day and is capable of delivering more
than 2,500 watts of power over a 24-hour period.
Over the past several years, the trailer has pro-
vided power for storm victims hit hard by severe
weather and tornadoes from South Florida to
Louisiana.


It provided enough power for DeMar's nebu-
lizer, a lamp and a radio. "It's the perfect answer
for special needs victims like Joe," Young said. "If
we had a gasoline or diesel generator here, the
exhaust emissions from it would fill the air around
his campsite and therefore impact his health.
This solar system produces no emissions and
it makes no noise so he can use it any time of the
night without disturbing neighbors."
Young envisions a role for the PV trailer in
every Florida county for emergency assistance.
Although nearly 10 times the initial cost of a gas-
powered generator of similar capacity, the FSEC
senior research engineer says it doesn't take long
to recoup that investment.
"When you look at operating costs and lifecy-
cle costs, this is cheaper because you don't have
fuel," he said.
"We don't have oil changes or maintenance or
cylinders to rebuild. We replace the batteries about
once every six years while some generators have
to be rebuilt every 500 to 1,000 hours." The PV
disaster trailer has proven itself
again and again, providing power
for emergency medical units in
Port Charlotte after Hurricane
Charlie, ham radio operators in
l' Central Florida following
,. Hurricane Francis and cooling fans
for Katrina victims in New
Orleans.
"And yes," Young said, "it
works even on cloudy days,
although it is most efficient when
the storm clouds clear."

this year

By Ricardo Gordillo
Staff Writer


It seems that the University of South Florida
crowd has no heart for Valentine's Day.
Valentine's Day has long been the one day
when you show your loved one that you are
resourceful, cultured and financially secure by giv-
ing said person neat stuff at fine places. Apart
from his or her birthday, the anniversary,
Christmas and other scattered holidays, this is the
day to splurge on them.
Taking this into account, I was immediately
dispatched by the editor to find what college stu-
dents wvere doing for the day of romance. His goal
is to make me into a better journalist, but after
putting the question to 15 students, I think he
wants to make me into a cynic.
The answers given by the random sample of
students interviewed varied little.
"Nothing" was the response at the top of the
bell curve with "I don't know" nipping closely at
its heels. Excuses for the two responses varied,
but I know when people give me the "my dog ate
my homework" routine.
Personally, I'm not doing anything because
excessive spending on my significant other during


Christmas nearly bankrupted me. John Terrana, a
graduate student at the USF St. Petersburg campus
and fellow employee at the Pinellas News, is not
doing anything on account of having classes.
So the answers given to me did not astound
me. My editor laughed when I came back empty-
handed.
"College students aren't doing anything for
Valentine's Day," I said. "It was depressing."
But do not despair, optimistic romantics.
There is hope in the likes of Sajo Chevara, a junior
majoring in marketing at USF
He started planning for Valentine's Day in the
beginning of January, he said. He got the United
States Postal Service involved even though the
woman lives on campus, nearly 300 yards from
where I interviewed him. He also spent nearly
$100 on her even though she is not exactly his girl-
friend. To make matters even more romantic, he
isn't even fond of Valentine's Day.
"I don't see anyone else doing anything old-
fashioned," Chevara said. "Who wants a balloon?
I feel like I went above and beyond Valentine's
Day."

Rays 2007 TV schedule


biggest ever


ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- A total of 146
Tampa Bay Devil Rays games will be televised
regionally in 2007, the most in club history.
Seventy five games will be produced and tele-
vised statewide on FSN Florida, including approx-
imately half in high definition, with an additional
67 games carried by Rays TV on ION Television's
(formerly PAX) WXPX-TV 66.
While the Rays over-the-air and FSN Florida
regional schedule of 142 total games is the same
number as last year's all-time high, fans will have
the opportunity to see four additional Rays games
against the Florida Marlins, which are being pro-
duced and televised statewide by FSN Florida as
part of the Marlins regional TV schedule, bringing
the total to 146. The Rays over-the-air games will
again be available on DirecTV.
The Rays 2007 regional television schedule
includes all of their games against the Boston Red
Sox and New York Yankees. The Rays total regu-
lar season package calls for 69 away games and 73
home.
FSN Florida will carry the season opener at
New York on Monday, April 2. The games will be
available statewide on FSN Florida in more than
5.1 million cable and satellite homes.
The home opener on April 6 vs. Toronto will
be carried over-the-air on WXPX-TV 66, available
in the Tampa-St. Petersburg area on either cable
Channel 17 throughout most of the area or over the
air on Channel 66 for those households without
cable. The Rays will also air 67 games in Orlando


on WOPX-TV 56.
All three of the Rays regular season games in
Orlando, May 15-17 against the Texas Rangers,
will be. televised. FSN Florida will carry two of the
games and Rays TV will telecast the second game
of the series.
FSN Florida will also televise two spring
training games: March 24 vs. the Boston Red Sox
from Progress Energy Park and March 31 vs. the
New York Mets from Tropicana Field.
Calling the action for Rays games for the
tenth consecutive season is the broadcasting team
of Dewayne Staats and Joe Magrane. Working
together since the team's inaugural 1998 season,
Staats and Magrane have been the team's only tele-
vision announcers.
Staats, a 31-year veteran of television and
radio, will again handle the play-by-play duties.
Magrane, who played in the major leagues for 10
years, returns as color analyst.
FSN Florida will also produce and air new
episodes of its INSIDE THE DEVIL RAYS televi-
sion series, hosted by Todd Kalas. Kalas is back
for his 10th season with the Rays and 14th in the
major leagues as the pre-game host and ingame
reporter for all telecasts. Nine half-hour
episodes of INSIDE THE DEVIL RAYS are
planned and will include player profiles, with rare
behind-the-scenes stories and interviews, plus
episodes offering inside access to other aspects of
the team and its operations.

A Costly Lack of



Control


It happens to a lot of families. Despite a nice raise, spending
still exceeds income. The credit-card debt is piling up. Mom and
Dad need to have "the big talk." It's time to decide where to cut their
spending to make ends meet.
The first thing they'd try to do would be to eliminate waste. It
wouldn't make much sense, for example, to turn the thermostat
down if they leave the back door wide open; they'd want to close the
door first.
Well, our federal government resembles this family.
Last year's federal deficit was $247.7 billion. That's smaller
than experts had estimated, because the Treasury reaped a big raise
last year, taking in an extra $253 billion in taxes. Still, we're spend-
ing far more than we take in Each year, piling up lots of debt we'll
eventually have to pay off.
President Bush has just sent his five-year budget proposal to
Congress, so now's the time for the president and lawmakers to have
"the big talk" about how to get their finances in order.
For starters, they should find a way to slam the back door. It's
wide open, and cash is simply pouring out.
In the Treasury Department's 2003 "Financial Report of the
United States Government," the administration admitted it couldn't
account for $24.5 billion it had spent that year. That waste alone
equaled to about 5 percent of the year's deficit.
You'd think waste on that scale would spur some action, and it
has: The government no longer explains exactly how much it
wastes. Oh, it's still wasting billions -- it's just that these days these
so-called "unreconciled transactions" are hidden, so they're more
difficult to identify. Instead of masking our wasteful spending, isn't
it time to simply eliminate it?
And while they're cracking down on waste, this year, lawmak-
ers also have a chance to make cuts in a wasteful and ineffective pro-
gram: No Child Left Behind.
NCLB was enacted five years ago with four goals: increase
accountability for student performance, focus on what works, allow
flexibility for states and school districts, and empower parents with
school choice.
Today, the federal government spends more than $66 billion on
K-12 education. That's more than $1,400 for every public-school
student in the United States. That investment, which actually repre-
sents less than 10 percent of all education spending in this country,
lets the federal government dictate policy to states and local dis-
tricts, creating a one-size-fits-all approach that stifles local innova-
.;tion .n ; ,. ; . .: . .. ... .. i , , . ,
Not surprisingly, NCLB has fallen short of the mark on two of
its stated four goals. The law has neither increased state and local
flexibility (because federal bureaucrats call the shots), nor expand-
ed parental choice. Meanwhile, the billions in additional spending
(education funding, for programs under No Child Left Behind has
jumped from $17.3 billion to $24.4 billion) haven't paid off: test
scores are virtually unchanged.
Another wasteful program ripe for pruning: farm subsidies.
The agriculture industry is booming. Between 2003 and 2006
net farm income totaled $274 billion -- the highest four-year total
ever. Yet, during the last decade, the federal government chipped in
$25 billion in subsidies. And most of that went not to family farm-

$200,000. Worse, farm programs cost American households hun-
dreds of dollars in taxes and higher food prices each year.
In the long run, entitlement spending is the major problem our
government must solve. But fixing Social Security, Medicare and
Medicaid will be easier if we also control federal spending and
make the government smaller and more efficient. It's time to get
started.

Satellites and sea lions: working



together to improve ocean models


Image credit: Mike Weise
A male sea lion shares his intimate knowledge of the ocean with
researchers via an electronic tag.

The best oceanographers in the world never studied at a univer-
sity. Yet they know how to navigate expertly along oceanic fronts,
the invisible boundaries between waters of different temperatures
and densities. These ocean experts can find rich fishing in places and
at depths that others would assume are barren. They regularly visit
the most interesting and dynamic parts of the sea.
Sea lions, seals, sharks, tuna and other top ocean predators
share some of their experiences with human researchers, thanks to
electronic tags. Besides tracking the animals, these sensors also col-
lect oceanographic data, such as temperature and salinity. Scientists
are beginning to incorporate this rich store of information into ocean
models providing new insights into the inner workings of the ocean
and the lives of its creatures.
"Our goal is to produce a three-dimensional model of the
ocean," says JPL oceanographer Dr. Yi Chao. Chao uses data from
satellites, ships, buoys and floats, to map the currents, heat content
and different water densities beneath the ocean surface. When Chao
heard Dr. Dan Costa, a professor of marine biology at the University
of California, Santa Cruz, present some of his animal tagging data at
a scientific meeting a few years ago, he saw an opportunity to
improve his ocean models. Costa recognized a chance to get a clear-
er picture of the place where his research subjects live.
Chao and Costa started their collaboration with sea lions. Costa
studies how marine mammals adapt to the ocean environment. As
part of his research, he and his students tag and track California sea
lions off the coast of Santa Cruz. Chao and his colleagues at JPL
used the independent temperature data collected by the sea lions to
see how well their ocean model could predict the temperature at spe-
cific depths. Then they worked on ways of assimilating.the sea lion
data with more conventional oceanographic data to create more
accurate and detailed ocean models. "Satellites provide a two-
dimensional view of the ocean," says Chao. "Animals give us a slice
of the ocean. They're like weather balloons in reverse."
The research collaboration now includes Dr. Barbara Block;'a
piofdsso'r : f "marine 'sciences at Stanford University, Palo Alto,
Calif., and the scientists have added tagging data collected from tuna
and sharks to their studies. Together with a group called TOPP, for
Tagging of Pacific Pelagics, they are now working to expand the use
of environmental and biological data collected by ocean inhabitants.
"We are at the forefront of knowing how animals use the

ocean," says Costa. "But we want to understand the environment
better. We still see the ocean primarily as deep or shallow or near-
shore or offshore. But just as there are different habitats on land, the
ocean has fine-scale features that are very important to animals," he
explains. "We want to be able to look at the ocean and say the equiv-
alent of "this is a grassland" or "this is a forest."
In late January, Costa and his research group headed up the
California coast to begin tagging elephant seals and collecting tags
that were deployed last spring. The work is strictly regulated to
ensure that the animals are protected from harm, and it requires a
permit from the National Marine Fisheries Service.
"We're constantly learning new things about these animals that
are amazing," Costa says. One of his students recently tagged a 17-
year old female elephant seal and discovered that the animal had
been tagged before, when she was 6. "She went to the same place
that she did 11 years ago," says Costa. "What clues is she using to
be able to follow the same track? Better ocean models can tell us
what's out there, what currents she faced and what the habitats are
like."
"Marine scientists have been tracking marine animals for
years," says Chao. "It's an interesting challenge, though, to use the
data. There are all sorts-- from tuna, sharks, seals--you name it.
Some of these data sets have small errors, others much larger errors.
Figuring out how to put these in our system is a challenge, "he says.
"But five years from now, we should be able to see the ocean the way
a turtle sees it."
"As we are getting more data from the sea and improving our
computer models," says Chao, "we should be able to make routine
ocean forecasts, similar to what meteorologists have been doing in
the past few decades. People who open the newspaper or turn on the
TV in the morning will see the updated ocean forecast and make
appropriate decisions as they plan their activities on the sea."
What is most important about using marine animals as ocean
sensors is that the work benefits the animals, Costa explains.
"Collaborations between biologists like Barbara Block and me and
physical oceanographers like Yi are critical for understanding why
the animals go where they go," he says, "as we need to know and
understand the ocean physics and its relationship to climate process-
es. Further, the ability to understand how climate change is affecting
the world oceans is not only of benefit to humans, but is vital for try-
ing figure out what is going to happen to habitat of marine animals."

Commissioners for the
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) approved new rules con-
cerning reptiles and other cap-
tive wildlife Wednesday. The
rules will go into effect as early
as Jan. 1.
Meanwhile, FWC staff is
working with stakeholders and
others to stem the invasion of
nonnative species that displace
or prey on Florida's native
species in the wild.
FWC officials plan to work
with the agency's Captive
Wildlife Technical Advisory
Group during the next year to
address unresolved issues such
as classification of wildlife, reg-
ulation of crossbred animals,
public contact with wildlife,
wildlife sanctuaries and wildlife
rehabilitators.
New rules address appropri-
ate locations for housing certain
wildlife and the possession and
housing of certain reptiles.
When they take effect, new rules
will require persons who keep
wildlife in captivity to have crit-
ical incident/disaster plans
describing what they will do in
the event of a hurricane, flood or
fire to prevent animals from
escaping into the wild.
They will prohibit providing
false information to qualify for
permits where documented
experience is required. The
rules also define "reptiles of con-
cern" and establish requirements
for possession. Also, they
require having a bite-response


plan and cage card identification
system for facilities with ven-
omous reptiles.
Escapes of reptiles of con-
cern or nonnative species of ven-
omous reptiles must be reported
immediately upon discovery to
FWC's Division of Law
Enforcement.
These rules create the list of
reptiles of concern -- the Indian
or Burmese python, reticulated
python, African rock python,
Amethystine or scrub python,
green anaconda and the Nile
monitor lizard.
As of Jan. 1, a permit will
be required to possess these rep-
tiles of concern. People who
possess these reptiles as pets
must be at least 18 years old and
complete an application and
questionnaire for the free permit.
The applicant must demon-
strate knowledge of the reptile of
concern by answering questions
about the species, dietary needs,
basic husbandry and caging and
safe housing requirements.
People who possess reptiles of
concern will have to ensure their
pets are permanently identified
by implanting a microchip once
the reptile reaches 2 inches in
diameter. They also must meet
specific record-keeping, report-
ing, safe housing and minimum
cage requirements.
Violations of these rules
could lead to non-criminal
infractions ($50 fine) up to crim-
inal misdemeanor charges (up to
one year in jail and a $1,000
fine).

St. Petersburg approves



funding for homeless



initiatives


St. Petersburg, Fla. (February 1, 2007) -
Today, St. Petersburg City Council approved
$150,000 in funding to add to the county's current
efforts to assist St. Petersburg's homeless popula-
tion in finding immediate 90-day housing, trans-
portation and other social services.
On Tuesday, Mayor Rick Baker, city, county
and community leaders announced a five point ini-
tiative that identifies near-term and long-term
goals that will help the Homeless Leadership
Network to accelerate implementation of the coun-
ty's 10-Year Plan to End Homelessness. One of the
near-term goals identifies the provision of imme-
diate housing assistance to the current year's win-
ter influx of street homeless populations through-
out the county.
Mayor Baker requested that City Council pass
the funding measure in order to assist with the cur-
rent need for housing.
Frank Murphy, president of Catholic
Charities, is leading the effort to find available
housing units. Also, local housing officials with
the assistance of the Department of Housing &
Urban Development are working to identify
housing where rent vouchers may be used.
With this increased funding, it is anticipated
that social service agencies will be able to place


approximately 75 people in housing for up to 90
days.
The five point initiative includes federal assis-
tance to review the 10-year plan from the U.S.
Interagency Copncil on Homelessness; increased
immediate shelter funding by both the city and
county; a "Project Homeless Connect" service and
job fair for those affected by homelessness; a pub-
lic/private task force to locate a set of 150 to 200
bed transitional facilities; and a homelessness
summit to be held within the next 45 days to
address concerns of businesses and neighbor-
hoods.
"The homeless issues facing communities
across this country are complicated," said Mayor
Rick Baker. "To make a significant impact, we
need to bring everyone to the table from all levels
of government and the community. Through the
county's 10-year plan and our efforts to help them,
that is exactly what we are doing."
City Council Chair John Bryan said, "St.
Petersburg City Council supports this funding, and
joins the county and the community at large to
help move forward the 10-Year Plan to End
Homelessness."


World shark attacks rise



slightly but continue



long-term dip


By Cathy Keen
UF
GAINESVILLE, Fla. Shark attacks edged
up slightly in 2006 but continued an overall long-
term decline as overfishing and more cautious
swimmers helped take a bite out of the aggressive
encounters, new University of Florida research
finds.
. The total number of shark attacks worldwide
increased from 61. in 2005 to 62 in 2006 and the
number of fatalities.remaineds stable at four, far
below the 79 attacks and 11 fatalities recorded in
2000, said George Burgess, director of the
International Shark Attack File housed at UF's
Florida Museum of Natural History.
"This was a nice dull year and we love dull
years because it means there are fewer serious
attacks and fewer victims," Burgess said. Fewer
sharks are swarming near the shore where humans
swim as larger numbers of shark and other fish of
prey are killed each year, Burgess said. At the,
same time, many Third World countries are mak-
ing strides in improving medical care and beach
safety, while many people are getting smarter
about where and when to get into the water, he
said.
"They're starting to see that when they enter
the sea, they're engaging in a wilderness experi-
ence as opposed to entering the equivalent of a
backyard pool," he said.
The number of attacks in the United States,
the world's leader, dipped slightly from 40 in 2005
to 38 in 2006; well below the 53 recorded in 2000,
he said.
As in past years, Florida was the world's
shark capital, with 23 attacks, Burgess said. This
was slightly.higher than the 19 cases reported in
2005 but considerably lower than the annual aver-
age of 33 between 2000 and 2003, he said.
Elsewhere in the world, Burgess tracked
seven attacks in Australia, four in South Africa,
three in Brazil, two in the Bahamas and one each
in Fiji, Guam, Mexico, New Zealand, Puerto Rico,


La Reunion, Spain and Tonga.
The four fatalities were in Australia, Brazil,
La Reunion and Tonga. The Australian victim was
a woman swimming with her dog, and the attack
may have been provoked by fishermen throwing
bloodied fish in the ocean as they, cleaned their
catch. The Brazilian fatality was a male surfer in
waters off the northeastern part of the country. The
Tonga case involved a 24-year-old female swim-
mer who was an American Peace Corps volunteer.
The attack off the Indian Ocean island of Reunion
was on a 34-year-old. male surfing ina ar qa where
swimming and other recreational activities are for-
bidden.
"Some of these tourists bring their aquatic
recreation to places known to be sharky without
asking the natives about good and bad places,"
Burgess said. "The natives may know that you
don't go into the water off a certain point because
that's where the big tiger shark is, and the French
tourist who decides to go sailboarding there gets
grabbed by the tiger shark."
Surfers and windsurfers were the most fre-
quent victims in 2006, accounting for 26 of the
shark attacks, followed by swimmers and waders,
21, and divers and snorkelers, five.
"Within Florida, Volusia County and particu-
larly New Smyrna Beach is the hot spot," he said.
"This area on a square mile basis has more attacks
than anyplace else in the world."
A nearby inlet draws many swimmers, surfers
and sharks, which find all the splashing, kicking
and other movements humans make in the water
highly provocative, Burgess said.
Shark attacks in Volusia County increased
from nine in 2005 to 12 in 2006. Numbers of
attacks recorded in other Florida counties were
three in Brevard, two each in Manatee and St.
Lucie and one each in Collier, Monroe, Indian
River and Palm Beach.
"Even though there are a large number of
attacks in Volusia County and along the entire east
coast of Florida, the injuries are seldom very seri-
ous and fatalities are highly unusual," he said.


Regulations are slated to change for several
recreational and commercial marine reef fish
species found in Florida's offshore waters. The
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) Thursday proposed a series of
rule amendments that will bring Florida regula-
tions in line with recent rule changes for federal
waters adjacent to state waters.
Florida state waters extend 9 nautical miles
offshore in the Gulf of Mexico and 3 miles off-
shore in the Atlantic Ocean. So-called "federal"
waters, also known as the Exclusive Economic
Zone or EEZ, extend farther offshore beyond state
waters. The FWC has regulatory jurisdiction in
Florida waters, and federal agencies and councils
manage fishing in federal waters.
The FWC is proposing the following rule
amendments to be consistent with recent federal
rule changes, and as a result, to minimize public
confusion and aid in enforcement:
apply the same commercial quotas and/or
trip limits in Atlantic state waters that have been
established in Atlantic federal waters for golden
tilefish, snowy grouper, red porgy and black sea
bass;
establish a daily recreational bag limit of one
fish per person for snowy grouper and for golden
tilefish within the five-grouper aggregate daily bag
limit in Atlantic waters;
increase the recreational size limit for ver-
milion snapper from 11 inches total length to 12
inches total length in Atlantic waters;
adopt a June 1 May 31 recreational and.
commercial fishing season for black sea bass in


Atlantic waters;
increase the recreational size limit for black
sea bass from 10 inches total length to 12 inches
total length and decrease the daily recreational bag
limit from 20 fish per person to 15 fish per person
in Atlantic waters;
require the use of at least 2-inch mesh for the
back panel of black sea bass traps, require removal
of traps from the water once the commercial quota
is met, and reduce the recreational allocation of
black sea bass in Atlantic waters;
increase the daily recreational bag limit for
red porgy from one fish per person to three fish per
person in Atlantic waters;
prohibit the captain and crew on for-hire
vessels from retaining recreational bag limits of all
species of grouper in Gulf waters;
decrease the recreational size limit for ver-
milion snapper from 11 inches total length to 10
inches total length in Gulf waters;
eliminate the Apr. 22 May 31 commercial
closed season for vermilion snapper in Gulf
waters; and
eliminate the requirement that commercial
red snapper fishers must possess either a Class 1 or
Class 2 red snapper license to conform with new
federal provisions that establish an Individual
Fishing Quota program for red snapper in Gulf
waters.
Another proposed rule amendment would
prohibit the possession of all recreational reef fish
species on commercial trips. A final public hearing
on all of these rule proposals will take place dur-
ing the FWC's April 11-12 meeting in Tallahassee.

FWC proposes allowing

M IWi M

sponge diving in



Panhandle


Commercial sponge harvest may be legal
'soon in Northwest Florida marine waters. The
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
-Commssl.ion (FWC) ptpos1ed''t draft' r.tle
Thursday"t6''allow commercial sponge harvest
west- of 84 degrees west longitude, near Cabell
-'Point on the eastern border of Jefferson County.
Commercial harvest of sponges in Florida is a
historical fishery, principally concentrated along
the central Gulf of Mexico near the traditional
sponge docks in Tarpon Springs and in the Florida
'Keys. This fishery is the source of natural sponges
for a variety of household cleaning purposes and
also supports a curio trade.
Of the many species of sponges that occur in
Florida, only a few are sought-after by the fishery
and regulated. These species commercial
sponges include sheepswool, grass, yellow,
glove, finger, wire, reef and velvet sponges.
Commercial sponges may be harvested legal-
ly now, by diving, in all state waters north of the
southernmost point of Egmont Key, northward and
westward to the 84 degrees west longitude line.
They also may be harvested, by diving, in all state


waters beyond 3 nautical miles from the shoreline
south of Egmont Key to the Monroe and Collier
,county line. Commercial sponges also are legally
.iv.rvesled in'rhe Keys by hooking '
Commercial fishers hav' requested the
Florida Panhandle area also be open to sponge har-
vest by diving, and the FWC believes this fishery
will be limited and have negligible impacts to
sponge abundance. The FWC also proposes that
all sponges harvested by diving must be cut rather
than pulled from their base.
Current regulations specify that persons wish-
ing to land sponges in commercial quantities must
possess a valid saltwater products license and a
valid sponge endorsement.
Legally harvestable commercial sponges also
must be at least 5 inches in diameter, and there are
specific areas where sponges may be taken by div-
ing. A daily recreational bag limit of 10 commer-
cial sponges also applies, and sponging in
Biscayne National Park is prohibited.
A final public hearing on the proposed sponge
rule will take place during the FWC's April 11-12
meeting in Tallahassee.

ics who has traveled'

Anderson is credited
with helping the FSU
graduate program in
art education rise to
S'.. national prominence.
In fact, FSU art edu-
cation department
Chair Marcia Rosal
declares Anderson-
Professor Tom Anderson declares Anderson--
who joined that fac-
ulty in 1983 and now
is its longest-serving member-"the very heart of
our program."
Sally McRorie, dean of the FSU College of
Visual Arts, Theater and Dance, calls Anderson
"extraordinarily deserving" of the prestigious
national honor, and notes that it is the second time
the national top nod has gone to an FSU art edu-
cation professor.
"Tom Anderson follows in the big footsteps of
FSU Professor Charles Dorn, who received the
same recognition in 2003 and passed away last
summer after many years here," McRorie said.
"Professor Anderson's work, like that of Professor
Dorn, has helped the FSU graduate program in art
education become recognized as one of the top
three most influential among those at all public
institutions in North America."
While his recent round of national recognition
is significant, Anderson's tireless stewardship of
future art instructors has brought him "stellar" stu-
dent evaluations and many other teaching awards
.during his nearly 25-year tenure at FSU, said
McRorie. She also praised his role as the driving
force behind the prolific and growing Guernica
Children's International Peace Mural Project,
which so far has generated exhibits and workshops
in 39 countries.
The admiration is mutual. "I've been extreme-
ly well supported here at FSU, by Sally McRorie
both as my. dean,and as my former chair, by my
current chair, Marcia R Oal; and:iby my,.former
dean, Jerry Draper,". said Anderson, FSU's Jessie
Lovano-Kerr Professor of Art Education. "The

USFSP's population jumps


St. Petersburg, FL Freshman applications
are up more than 63 percent from just one year
ago. Last year at this time 399 students had
applied to USF St. Petersburg. This year that-num-
ber has jumped to 651. Fall 2006 also set a record
for increased freshman enrollment.
"As more Florida high school students are
looking for a university education it's important
for a state university to rise to the challenge and
offer them an affordable education," V. Mark
Durand, Ph.D. and regional vice chancellor of
Academic Affairs.
"Students are realizing that we've added more
math and science courses, and we have received
national recognition for many programs including
our College of Business."


The university is working to increase enroll-
ment over the next eight years, and leaders have
developed a statewide marketing campaign.
"We're appealing to high school juniors and
seniors who want to enjoy the benefits of a small-
er institution with small classes and a chance for
students to know their professor," Holly Kickliter,
regional associate vice chancellor of University
Relations, said. "We offer a campus with a private
school feel and a public school price."
Opening its first residence hall last fall has
allowed the university to reach out to students
beyond the Bay area. The hall has 354 beds, and
all amenities, including phone, cable TV and
Internet service, are included in the price. The
campus has nearly 5,000 students enrolled.


emphasis and value on research here is very rare in
art education. There are only a handful of other
schools in North America that are truly research-
centered art education programs, and I wouldn't
leave FSU to go to any one of them. I truly feel
like I have one of the best art education jobs in the
world."
A popular professor of students at both the
graduate and undergraduate levels, Anderson has
taught in Spain, Italy and the Czech Republic for
FSU's International Programs, and developed and
served as the primary faculty representative for the
graduate program in art education at FSU's
Panama City, Fla., campus. He has been a curricu-
lum consultant for a number of states-and the
country of Kuwait.
Nominated as educator of the year by one of
his former students, Anderson considers his latest
award "sort of a lifetime achievement thing"-and
indeed it is.
Since 1983, when he earned his Ph.D. in art
from the University of Georgia and joined the FSU
faculty, Anderson has mentored about 40 doctoral
students-a remarkable record. He has authored
numerous books, chapters, reviews and articles;
led myriad art education workshops; appeared as
the featured speaker at dozens of national and
international conferences; and been the editor of
several journals and other publications. He co-
authored "Art for Life," a textbook that has been
widely used in programs across North America
and now is being translated into Japanese, Korean
and Chinese.
In addition to aesthetics and art criticism, his
areas of expertise include, among others, the social
foundations of art and education; anthropology of
art and multicultural concerns; and philosophy and
contemporary theory related to art and education.
He has taught basic studio art, art history and art
appreciation-and practices what he preaches: as
a creative artist in his own right, his mural paint-
ings and photography have appeared at juried
exhibitions nationwide.
Still, it's all about the students. "What's most
meaningful to me are the students I've mentored
and in many cases the ongoing relationships that
have evolved from that mentoring," Anderson said.
"I've been the major professor of many who are
now professors themselves all across the country
and in a number of foreign countries, too."
He will claim his Art Educator of the Year
award in March at the National Art Education
Association conference in New York City.
Anderson contends that art is one of the most
fundamental means of communication between
human beings about life's most profound-and
mundane-experiences, and understanding that
communication is essential to human culture, e\en
existence-. .,:- -. .' '
"That's what I engage and that's what I teach,"
he said.
