Housing property



becoming more valuable



than homes


USF free enterprise



student group wins



regional competition


rnuu. o cuiy u eGUIrCnC
This home located at 1221 Brightwaters Ave. in St. Petersburg was demolished on Tuesday, Apr. 10,
2007. The plot of land where the house was sitting will make way for two smaller homes.

The site at Brighwaters after the house was removed. Across the water can be seen other large homes,
some worth millions of dollars. More expensive neighborhoods are now becoming part of a trend where
buyers seek to buy for the property alone and not for the house itself.


TAMPA, Fla. The University of South
Florida Students In Free Enterprise (SIFE) team
was named Regional Champion at this year's SIFE
USA Regional Competition April 2. As winners
of the regional competition, the team advances to
the national level of competition to be held May 6
-9 in Dallas, Texas.
They will, compete against all of the:regional
champions from the 17 regions around the country
for the opportunity to represent the United States
at the SIFE World Cup in New York City in
October.
SIFE is an international non-profit organiza-
tion active on over 1400 university campuses in
more than 40 countries. SIFE Teams create eco-
nomic opportunities in their communities by orga-
nizing outreach projects that teach market eco-
nomics, entrepreneurship, success skills, financial
literacy and business ethics. Their projects are
judged on cre-
ativity, innova-
tion and effec-
tiveness.
In addi-
tion to learn-
ing how to be (.
fiscally
responsible
during the aca-
demic year,
USF's team
also donated
four comput-
ers to
Abundant Life
Worship
Center as one
of 15 projects
organized by
the students in
the Tampa Bay USF SIFE team members, from le
Area commu- President, Renee Llauget, Secretary
nity. They put Tran, Bola Adeshina, Ashley Watson
in more than
3,300 hours of volunteer time that directly affect-
ed more than 3,900 people.
"The team has worked very hard this year to
build a tradition of its own," said Dameion Lovett,
assistant director, student financial aid. "In two
very short years, we have established a group that
is unlike any other organization on campus."
One of USF SIFE's main goals was to make a
strong showing at the regional competition and the
students worked to be competitive with the Flagler
College SIFE team, considered one of the best
schools in the nation. The Flagler team has repre-
sented the United States in the SIFE World Cup.
The USF team was headed by Ferdian Jap, a grad-
uate student in USF's Entrepreneurship Master's
Program.
This Master of Science degree is offered in a
unique, innovative and interdisciplinary one-year
program.. The course of study is administered
through USF's Center for Entrepreneurship, in
conjunction with the Colleges of Business


Administration, Engineering, USF Health and the
Graduate School.
"Not only did we compete with FC SIFE, but
we finished in a virtual tie in the judging at com-
petition," he said. "We won by a few percentage
points."
SIFE at USF competed in the 2005 Regional
Competition and won Second Runner-Up and
Rookie of the Year after being in existence for only
three weeks and in 2006 won Second Runner-Up
and Best Entrepreneurship Project. The team was
also honored with USF's Outstanding New
Student Organization award.
"We hit the ground running and were a force
to be contended with from the very beginning,"
Lovett said.
In addition to being a regional.champion, the
SIFE team at USF was also named a finalist in the
HSBC Financial Literacy Individual Topic
Competition
and received a
'cash award
for this recog-
nition. There
are 20 final-
ists for each
of the five
d lp educational
topics taught
by SIFE stu-
dents in their
communities.

the competi-
tion will be

nent was the
reason we established the SIFE team on the USF
Tampa campus," said Lovett. "The financial aid
office recognized a need for financial literacy ini-
tiatives to educate students on topics such as
developing action plans, to achieve educational
goals through financial goal setting."
The program also taught the students the need
to identify short-term and long-term financial
goals, how to identify their spending habits and the
impact on their goals, understanding the role of
credit and how to use it effectively, and how to
borrow wisely.
SIFE students partnering with USF Financial
Aid staff have been teaching these concepts to stu-
dents in the University Experience Program,
Freshman Summer Institute, Area Health
Education Center (AHEC) and Student Support
Services. SIFE students spent 225 hours and
reached over 200 students with this project.
This project was also a front page story in the
Tampa Tribune on September 21, 2006.


FWC consolidates rules for nonnative species;



Additional nonnative species now prohibited


Florida's nonnative species regulations are now more user-
friendly, thanks to a bit of rule-housekeeping approved by the
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC)
Wednesday. The new rules consolidate regulations on nonnative
species into one chapter and expand regulations beyond freshwater
aquatic life and wildlife to include marine life.
"The overriding purpose of the change is to get all nonnative
species regulations into one rule and incorporate nonnative marine
life into current regulations," said Scott Hardin, section leader for
nonnative species with the FWC. "It prohibits the release of nonna-
tive marine life without a permit and is by far the broadest statement
FWC has made with regard to nonnative species."
Current regulations already prohibit the release of nonnative
freshwater aquatic life and wildlife. The new rule outlines require-
ments to possess conditional and prohibited nonnative species and
names additional nonnatives to these lists. The FWC does not issue
permits for personal possession of conditional or prohibited species
because of the significant potential to damage native flora and fauna.
Only researchers, exhibitors and those with stringent biosecurity can
secure a permit for prohibited nonnative species.
Most notable are changes in regulations for owners of red-eared


slider turtles. Current owners of red-eared sliders may keep these
turtles without a permit but may not be in possession of a red-eared
slider less than 4 inches long after July 1, 2008. Albino and other
unusual color varieties, unique and unlikely to be wantonly discard-
ed, are exempt. The red-eared slider is the little green turtle sold by
the hundreds of
V, .millions in
Sdime stores and
Spent shops.
Released into
the wild, they
interbreed with
a native turtle
species.
Another
change pro-
hibits future
_fish farms from

Red Eared Slider Turtle outdoor culture
of barramundi,


a large predatory fish from Australia. Existing facilities culturing
barramundi may continue to raise this species in outdoor ponds.
FWC staff will conduct a risk assessment to determine security mea-
sures for the group of fishes
known as Nile perches, includ-
ing barramundi.
"We propose to assess the
practice of fee-fishing," Hardin
said. "In general, barramundi -
is such a popular sport fish that
it may lead to temptation to
stock them in the state's
waters."
New rules also add nutria
to the list of conditional Photo:FWC
Baramundi
species, prohibiting their pos-
session and distribution with-
out a permit.
"These large, imported rodents have caused significant damage
to marsh vegetation in neighboring states," Hardin said. "We're anx-
ious to make sure Florida doesn't sustain that kind of damage."

U.N. needs to



get around the



bloc


Even before it was officially born, the U.N. was beset by ten-
sions. President Roosevelt floated the concept of a "United Nations"
during World War II. It seemed achievable: After all, free countries
such as the United States, Britain and Australia managed to set aside
their differences with the Soviet Union long enough to defeat Nazi
Germany.
But once the war ended and the U.N. charter was ratified, the
Soviets formed a bloc of communist countries and began opposing
measures proposed by the free world. The U.N. General Assembly
became a farce -- a debating society where little was accomplished.
Today, the Soviet Union is long gone, but the bloc system
remains alive and well at the U.N. And it's still working to stymie
the United States.
In 2005, according to the State Department, the General
Assembly voted against the United States 75 percent of the time on
non-consensus votes. Granted, that's a higher-than-usual level of
anti-Americanism. Over the past two decades, members of the
assembly opposed U.S. positions "only" two-thirds of the time on
average.
This overwhelming, knee-jerk opposition to American-held
positions has severely blunted U.N. effectiveness. Washington
should be able to use the U.N. to promote policies, such as democ-
racy, human rights and economic freedom, which would benefit the
entire world. That can't be done unless we build support for U.S.
positions.
No nation hands out more foreign aid than the United States.
But that largess obviously hasn't created much goodwill at U.N.
headquarters. According to The Heritage Foundation's Brett,
Schaefer and Anthony Kim, in 2005 more than 90 percent of U.S.
foreign-aid recipients voted against the United States a majority of
the time in the assembly. Three out of four aid beneficiaries voted
against the United States a majority of the time on votes deemed
important by the State Department.
So what should the United States do to help the U.N. live up to
its promise? Form a bloc of its own -- a Freedom Coalition within
the U.N. to promote economic and political liberty. Here's why:
Freedom works. Statistics show that as nationsbecome freer, the
'policies they support tend to mirror those prop-osed b ithe IUnited
States.
It's no coincidence that most American proposals at the U.N.
are aimed at increasing freedom and democracy worldwide, and free
nations tend to support us in that mission. It's the unfree and unde-
mocratic that line up to oppose us. A coalition of free nations would
encourage others to vote with us on major proposals.
We should encourage the spread of freedom by focusing our
foreign aid on countries that advance political and economic free-
dom. We've already seen that a shotgun-aid approach -- giving
money to virtually everyone -- doesn't necessarily promote our
interests. It's time to reward those countries that make progress. The
Bush administration's Millennium Challenge Account program is a
good first step. We should expand it, even as we phase out other for-
eign-aid programs.
According to its charter, the U.N. aims "to reaffirm faith in fun-
damental human rights, in the dignity and worth of the human per-
son, in the equal rights of men and women and of nations large and
small." We can make this ideal a reality -- through a coalition of free
nations, working to spread that freedom far and wide.


Ed Feulner is president of the Heritage Foundation.

Asteroids are Earth's closest celestial neighbors, sometimes
passing closer to Earth than even the Moon. And yet, to date, only
two spacecraft have ever remained in proximity to one of these bod-
ies. Last month, orbit mechanics experts from around the world met
to discuss methods for finding the best possible spacecraft trajecto-
ry, or flight path, for visiting a sequence of asteroids. The gathering
was part of the second Global Trajectory Optimisation Competition,
organized by JPL.
The idea of an asteroid grand tour is a celestial analogue to the
Grand Tour embarked upon by Renaissance travelers seeking to fur-
ther their cultural knowledge of Europe. Just as the traveler had to
judge carefully which cities to visit based on his or her available
resources, so must designers of a spacecraft flight path contend with
limited resources and constraints. Such restrictions include the rock-
et's ability to launch the spacecraft into space, the strength of the
spacecraft's thruster, orbital positions of the various asteroids over
time, and the spacecraft's longevity.
Determining
the best possible
trajectory within
these constraints,
out of the many
good ones, is not
a trivial matter. It
requires a big-pic-
ture, or global,
view of all the
possibilities, that
is, it requires
global optimiza-
tion. There are
many possible
approaches, each
with its own
strengths and
weaknesses.
The inspira-
tion for this prob-
lem was the need
to study closely
different types of
asteroids. By vis-
iting a member of
each of four dif-
ferent asteroid
groups, a space-
craft would pro-
vide insights into
their chemical
composition, their
structural charac-
teristics,how they Ida and its small satellite Dactyl are main belt a
formed, and
which might be suitable for future space mining operations. Such
insights would also be critical should the need ever arise to deflect
an asteroid that is found to be on an Earth-threatening trajectory.
The problem posed by JPL's Outer Planets Mission Analysis
Group for the second competition was to design a flight path for vis-
iting four.asteroids--.one from each group,- in. the shortest amount
of flight time and with the least amount of propellant. With almost
1,000 asteroids to choose from, more than 41 billion asteroid
sequences could be considered. That's far too many to study indi-
vidually in the short time allocated for the competition, even with
the fastest computers, largest computer clusters and best algorithms.

Other states charge $20 for a fishing license; Florida gets only
$12. It's reached the point where some anglers are calling on legis-
lators to raise the fees. Although a few anglers view fishing licenses
as a necessary evil that is as inevitable as taxes, most understand
what the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission
(FWC) uses the money for and put the value they receive in return
into perspective. Those anglers realize their fishing licenses are a
great recreational bargain that helps ensure safe and sustainable
recreation fishing for themselves, their families, friends and future
generations. Read on for a great offer on five-year freshwater fish-
ing licenses.
Fishing as recreation goes back at least 3,000 years. Thaddeus
Norris, in his 1864 publication, "The American Angler's Book,"
specifically referred to the need for conservation. In Florida, the
then-State Department of Game and Fresh Water Fish sold the first
state fishing licenses in 1925 to support conservation
(MyFWC.com/Fishing/Timeline). Costs were $2 for out-of-county
residents, free for county residents and $5 for out-of-state. Back
then, $2 would buy what $23 buys today. Since 1989, resident
anglers have paid $12 for a freshwater or saltwater fishing license
(saltwater fees have not increased since the Legislature established
them in 1989). Those fees in 2006 dollars equate to $20 and are the
13th least expensive among state freshwater fishing license fees and
fifth lowest of the 11 states that sell saltwater licenses. The average
resident fishing license for fresh or saltwater in other states is also
about $20.
State law guarantees Florida anglers that all money from the
sale of fishing licenses goes to the FWC to help fulfill the mission
of "Managing fish and wildlife resources for their long-term well-
being and the benefit of people." Congress mandated that state leg-
islatures agree to these terms in order to receive the benefits of the
Federal Aid in Sport Fish Restoration Act (SFR).
In 1950, congressmen Dingell and Johnson created the original
SFR program in which fishing tackle is assessed an excise fee. The
"Wallop-Breaux" amendment in 1984 expanded the act by adding
import duties on sport fishing equipment, pleasure boats and yachts
as well as tax revenue from motorboat fuel sales. The U.S. Fish and
Wildlife Service reimburses states from these funds for $3 of every
$4 spent on qualifying Sport Fish Restoration projects.
In 1994, passage of the Transportation Equity Act (TEA-21)

Fourteen teams from Europe, Russia, China and the U.S. -
sought the elusive best possible trajectory. Their search took place
over a period of four weeks late last year, at the end of which they
submitted their top solution to be ranked against those of the other
teams.
The winning trajectory was found by a team from the
Polytechnic of Turin, Italy. Two professors, Lorenzo Casalino and
Guido Colasurdo, along with Ph.D. student Matteo Rosa Sentinella
and graduate student Francesco Cacciatore, successfully and quick-
ly screened out billions of possible asteroid sequences to focus on
the most practical ones. Their winning trajectory, involving visits of
four different asteroids in just over nine years, was followed by tra-
jectories from a Russian team (the Moscow Aviation Institute and
the Khrunichev State Research and Production Space Center), and a
team from the European Space Agency's Advanced Concepts Team.
The workshop where the various teams convened for their dis-
cussions took place in Sedona, Ariz., in conjunction with the Space

steroids located between Mars and Jupiter.


Flight Mechanics Meeting of the American Astronautical Society
and the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics.
Did the competition yield the best possible trajectory? With
such complexity, it is likely impossible to say, but an educated guess,
and the insights gained by comparing the various teams' methods,
would suggest that there is still some room for improvement. The
Turin team, as winners of this year's competition, ,will now be orga-
nizing the Third Global Trajectory Optimisation Competition, where
various teams will again have the opportunity to test their mettle'in
solving the most challenging problems currently faced by spacecraft
trajectory designers.


authorized a National Outreach and Communications Program to
increase participation in angling and boating and to impress on
boaters and anglers the importance of healthy aquatic habitats. It
also increased the minimum level of spending for boating access to
15 percent and raised the maximum allowable expenditure of Sport
Fish Restdration apportionments for aquatic education and outreach
to 15 percent. The 1994 Act also created a Boating Infrastructure
Grant Program for construction or maintenance of facilities for
recreational boats longer than 26 feet. TEA-21 also raised the
amount of federal gas tax credited to Sport Fish Restoration and
established a "permanent" appropriation for the Boating Safety
Account. The result is one of the most successful "user pays, user
benefits" programs in the world.
The amount of money Florida receives is based on the size of
the state and the number of paid-licensed anglers -- not licenses and
permits, but the people who hold them. As an example, an angler
having a freshwater license, a saltwater license and a snook permit,
counts only once. Since Florida does not charge license fees to
youths under 16, adults over 65 or resident saltwater anglers fishing
from the shore, Florida recovers a smaller proportion of the funds
than other states do. This is becoming an increasing problem as
other states adjust their license structure to maximize the number of
paid-license holders they certify for federal aid and thus recover a
greater proportion of the excise taxes paid by our anglers. Each cer-
tified holder generates approximately $7 more for sport fish restora-
tion in Florida.
Sport Fish Restoration provided $9.1 million for Florida in
2006, of which 15 percent ($1.4 million) went to boating access. Of
the remaining, $7.7 million, freshwater fisheries conservation
received $3.2 million and saltwater fisheries conservation received
$4.5 million, based on the estimated number of resident freshwater
anglers versus saltwater anglers. Those dollars go to protect a recre-
ational fishing resource that has an economic benefit to Floridians of
more than $8 billion (MyFWC.com/Facts).
Activities such as habitat restoration, fish stocking, conserva-
tion law enforcement, artificial reefs, youth fishing clinics and boat-
ing access all depend on fishing license fees and matching Sport
Fish Restoration funds. Consequently, the FWC encourages all
anglers to buy a license (MyFWC.com/License). Even a legally
exempt angler can contribute to the future of our fisheries resources
and the health of our habitat in this way. Moreover, the Federal SFR
program contributes approximately $7 for each new license holder.
If you want an even-more painless way to contribute, buy a five-
year freshwater fishing license right now, and you will automatical-
ly receive a free-bonus package from the FWC via mail with fish-
ing-related, products donated by the industry, worth more than the
cost of the license ($60 plus issuance fees). This offer applies only
to the first 3,000 licenses sold after March 1, 2007 and will proba-
bly last until the end of May; see MyFWC.com/Fishing/5yr-
2007.html for details and to verify if the offer is still available.
The FWC will get the $7 SFR match each of the five years your
license is valid, and you can fish for today's prices even if the
Legislature decides to increase fees.

GAINESVILLE, Fla. -
Actor Mel Gibson avoided jail
time after he was convicted of
driving under the influence in
California last year. Most people
who take to the wheel after
drinking don't think they'll wind
up behind bars either or even
be caught, as the "Braveheart"
and "Lethal Weapon" star was,
University of Florida researchers
say.
Tougher mandatory mini-
mum jail sentences for driving
under the influence actually
keep few drunken drivers off the
road and don't significantly pre-
vent fatal car crashes related to
drunken driving, according to a
new study published last week in
the online edition of the journal
Accident Analysis and
Prevention.
Researchers looked at
changes in laws and policies
regarding mandatory minimum
fines and jail sentences for
drunken driving between 1976
and 2002 and studied rates of
DUI arrests and alcohol-related
fatal car crashes. They wanted to
find out if the stricter regulations
deterred people from drunken
driving and if the number of
accidents dropped in the popula-
tion as a whole, said Alexander
C. Wagenaar, a professor of epi-
demiology in UF's College of
Medicine and the study's lead
author.
"We found out that's not the
case," Wagenaar said. "The key
thing for a deterrence law like
this to work is people have to
believe if they engage in the
behavior that they're actually
going to experience the penalty.
There are many in the general
public who continue to drive
after drinking because they don't
really believe that they're going
to be detected, pulled over,
caught and go through the
process to be convicted before a
jail term would come into play."
More than 16,000 people
died as a result of alcohol-relat-
ed accidents in 2005, according
to the National Highway Traffic
Safety Administration, and
Department of Justice records
show that more than 1.4 million
people were arrested for driving
under the .influence of drugs or
alcohol in the same year.
The UF study, which was
funded by the Robert Wood
Johnson Foundation, shows that
tougher fines had a slight effect
on drunken driving rates in some
states, but there wasn't a consis-
tent pattern.
For example, states with
tougher fines didn't always have
a greater decrease in DUI
arrests, Wagenaar said.
Of the 48 states researchers
studied, 18 established mandato-
ry minimum jail terms and 26
instituted mandatory minimum


fines. Of the states that estab-
lished minimum jail sentences
for first-time offenders, five
actually showed a significant
decrease in fatal car accidents
after the changes were made, the
study shows. But two of those
states established other DUI
policies at the time, so it's
unknown whether jail time was
actually a factor, Wagenaar said.
The researchers also com-
pared the effects of new tougher
laws on drivers involved in car
accidents who were impaired at
varying levels after 1982, when
officials began testing blood-
alcohol concentration .levels.
They separated the. drivers into
three groups: those whose
blood-alcohol levels fell
between .01 and .07, between
.08 and .14, and .15 and beyond.
The legal blood-alcohol limit in
most states is .08. But the chang-
ing laws didn't seem to have
more effect on any particular
group, Wagenaar said.
"People agree that drinking
and driving is unacceptable,"
said James C. Fell, director of
traffic safety and enforcement
programs for the Pacific Institute
for Research and Evaluation in
Maryland. "But they do it
because they don't get caught.
On average statistics show that a
person drives tinder the influ-
ence 50 to 200 times before they
get caught or crash."
Aside from the fact that
most people don't think they'll
get caught, Wagenaar said post-
conviction penalties such as
fines and jail time don't happen
fast enough for the consequence
to be associated with the behav-
ior in most people's minds.
Generally, it takes six months to
one year before a,person con-
victed of DUI goes through the
courts and has to pay a fine or go
to jail, Wagenaar said.
"We know from psychologi-
cal research and research in
other areas that for a conse-
quence to influence behavior,
that consequence needs to hap-
pen close to the behavior." he
said. "It's the same thing we do
when we're disciplining our
children."
More enforcement, such as
weekly checkpoints, is needed to
make anti-drunken driving laws
more effective, Fell said.
Although mandatory jail
sentences don't deter drunken
drivers, Wagenaar said these
findings shouldn't be miscon-
strued that jail time isn't useful
as a punishment.
"It's clearly appropriate for
someone who has been convict-
ed two or three times who is not
changing their behavior,"
Wagenaar said. "We get ulti-
mately to a point where we have
to take measures because they're
such a threat to society."

Florida State University anthropologist has new
evidence.that ancient farmers in Mexico were cultivating
E AUC- an early form of maize, the forerunner of modem ,corn,
)R SER- about 7,300 years ago-1,200 years earlier than scholars
previously thought.
Professor Mary Pohl conducted an analysis of sedi-
ments in the Gulf Coast of Tabasco, Mexico, and con-
cluded that people
were planting crops in
the "New World" of
the Americas around
RWY 19. 5,300 B.C. The analy-
041324 sis extends Pohl's pre-
vious work in this area
and validates princi-
ION ples of microfossil
S data collection.

cordance Research, and John G. Jones of Washington State
AFTER University, are published in the April 9-13 edition of the

ICEON journal, Proceedings of the National Academy of
Sciences.
to file a "This research expands our knowledge on the tran-
IN THE
XEMHP sition to agriculture in Mesoamerica," Pohl said. "These
titled to are significant new findings that fill out knowledge of
WITH- the patterns of early farming. It expands on research that
demonstrates that maize spread quickly from its hearth
tentative: of domestication in southwest Mexico to southeast
I. Butler
zAvenue Mexico and other tropical areas in the New World
a 33611 including Panama and South America."
The shift from foraging to the cultivation of food
was a significant change in lifestyle for these ancient
people and laid the foundation for the later development
of complex society and the rise of the Olmec civilization,
Pohl said. The Olmecs predated the better-known
041325 Mayans by about 1,000 years.


"Our study shows that these early maize cultivators
located themselves on barrier islands between the sea
and coastal lagoons, where they could continue to fish as
well as grow crops," she said.
During her field work in Tabasco seven years ago,
Pohl found traces of pollen from primitive maize and
evidence of forest clearing dating to about 5100 B.C.
Pohl's current study analyzed phytoliths, the silica struc-
ture of the plant, which puts the date of the introduction
of maize in southeastern Mexico 200 years earlier than
her pollen data indicated. It also shows that maize was
present at least a couple hundred years before the major
onset of forest clearing. Traces of charcoal found in the
soil in 2000 indicated the ancient farmers used fire to
clear the fields on beach ridges to grow the crops.
"This significant environmental impact of maize
cultivation was surprisingly early," she said. "Scientists
are still considering the impact of tropical agriculture
and forest clearing, now in connection with global
warming."
The phytolith study also was able to confirm that the
plant was, in fact, domesticated maize as opposed to a
form of its ancestor, a wild grass known as teosinte. Pohl
and her colleagues were unable to make the distinction
after the pollen study. Primitive maize was probably
domesticated from teosinte and transported to the Gulf
Coast lowlands, where it was cultivated, according to
Pohl.
The discovery of cultivated maize in Tabasco, a
tropical lowland area of Mexico, challenges previously
held ideas that Mesoamerican farming originated in the
semi-arid highlands of Mexico and shows an early
exchange of food plants.
Pohl's PNAS article also addresses misconceptions
about the paleoecological method, which recovers
microfossil evidence, such as pollen, starch grains, or
phytoliths, as opposed to macrofossils or whole plant
parts, such as maize cobs. Pohl and her colleagues argue
that contamination of samples through the geological
processes of sediment mixing is more likely to occur
with macrofossils than microfossils.
The National Science Foundation and the
Foundation for the Advancement of Mesoamerican
Studies funded the research.

TALLAHASSEE- Chief Financial Officer Alex
Sink announced that 11 new windstorm inspection firms
have been selected to aid Floridians interested in hard-
ening their homes through the My Safe Florida Home
(MSFH) program. After a two-month competitive bid-
ding process, these firms were chosen based upon their
scores, capacity to perform a minimum number of qual-
ity inspections each week, and in-house resources avail-
able to manage the large number of applicants to the pro-
gram.
Each inspection firm must ensure that their inspec-
tors pass Level 2 background checks, including finger-
printing and drug testing. Each inspector must also
undergo the required education and training on mitiga-
tion techniques and the MSFH program.
"These inspection firms had to meet the strictest of
criteria in order to be considered for this program," said
CFO Sink. "We want homeowners to be highly satisfied
with the services they receive from the My Safe Florida
Home Program once it expands statewide."
Together, the 11 inspection firms have each been
selected to serve in specific regions of the state to ensure .
maximum statewide service. After a 60-day ramp-up
period, each firm has agreed to conduct a minimum of
1,000 inspections a week. Inspections firms were select-
ed to cover specific regions, as detailed below:
Panhandle (Region 1) AmeriPro Inspection and
Thomas Enterprising

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- The Tampa Bay Devil
Rays and Dunkin' Donuts have agreed to a multi-year
sponsorship affiliation.
As part of the agreement, the Rays and Dunkin'
Donuts will partner to organize a season-long promotion
called "Rays Win, You Win". Whenever the Rays win a
home or road game, fans can stop at a participating
Dunkin' Donuts and receive a free donut simply by men-
tioning that the Rays won the day before.
"Dunkin' Donuts has brought tremendous enthusi-
asm and creativity to this new partnership," said Rays
Senior Vice President/Chief Sales Officer Mark
Fernandez. "'The Rays Win You Win' promotion com-
bined with their ballpark presence is certain to create
measurable results and a strong connection between our
two brands."
The two organizations have teamed for a second
season-long promotion called "Win Coffee for a Year".


Administrators, JVI Inspections, Professional Service
Industries, and Home Inspections.
SSouth Florida (Region 4) Applied Research and
Associates, W.B. Sanders, Don Meyler Inspections, and
Skye Tec
The pilot phase of the MSFH program was launched
in late August 2006. During the MSFH program's 2006
pilot phase, more than 14,000 free wind inspections
were conducted in 17 counties. Along with an inspec-
tion report, these 14,000 homeowners received a grant
application to apply for matching funds, and the depart-
ment has received applications from more than 4,100
homeowners to date.
These homeowners are currently working with
licensed contractors approved by the MSFH program
and making recommended improvements to their homes.
Once the work has been completed, the state will reim-
burse the homeowners for 50 percent of the actual cost
of the improvements, up to $5,000. To date, more than
$47,000 in grant money has been awarded to 19
Floridians in seven counties.
The MSFH program helps Floridians identify how
they can strengthen their homes and reduces the overall
potential for hurricane damage in our state. To achieve
this goal, the program offers eligible homeowners a free
home inspection by trained and qualified hurricane mit-
igation inspectors.
Homeowners who have received these inspections
also have the opportunity to apply for a matching grant
of up to $5,000 to make recommended improvements.


The promotion will run each Sunday home game. Fans
can enter to win at any participating Tampa Bay area
locations, and the chosen participant will be given the
opportunity to go on the field and throw a baseball into
a giant donut.
If the contestant wins, he/she receives free coffee for
a year and every fan in attendance receives a coupon
upon exit of the stadium for a free coffee from Dunkin'
Donuts Dunkin' Donuts will also receive in-stadium sig-
nage at Tropicana Field and they will advertise on the
Rays pre- and postgame radio broadcasts.
"We are especially excited about the 'Rays Win, You
Win' promotion. Stop by your local Dunkin' Donuts
store in the greater Tampa Bay area to pick up your free
donut after every game the Devil Rays win! Be sure you
also try our refreshing Iced Coffee or any of our deli-
cious beverages while you're there," said Natalie
Ostroski, Field Marketing Manager for Dunkin' Donuts.

and some
dogs may remain in service 10 years (some people say that's 70 dog years). FWC K-9s are not attack
dogs. They are not trained in aggression. Rather, they specialize in finding people and evidence in
wilderness areas and on the water. They have established a world-wide reputation for finding lost
hunters, trespassers and others in need of contact with the "long nose of the law."
The dogs have proved invaluable to FWC officers in detecting illegally taken game, protected
species and even lobsters. They have found firearms, stashed in the woods by lawbreakers, and they can
even find drowning victims under water.
This year's graduates include:
FWC Officer Jeff Babauta and K-9 Mack, assigned to Leon County;
FWC Officer Brandon Ennis and K-9 Biloxi, assigned to Dade County;
FWC Officer Michael Guy and K-9 Jake, assigned to Bay County;
FWC Officer Sarah Hahner and K-9 Sadie, assigned to Santa Rosa County;
FWC Officer Tom Hill and K-9 Jasmine, assigned to Monroe County; and
FWC Officer Tim Miller and K-9 Patton, assigned to Indian River County.
The FWC handpicks its K-9s from dogs offered by donors.
Conservation agencies across the United States have modeled their own K-9 corps after the FWC's
program.

TAMPA, FLA. Rodrigo Hidalgo, a former
member of the USF men's soccer team as well as
a member of the U-20 U.S. National Team, has
signed a professional contract with the Minnesota
Thunder, the team announced last Friday.
"I am very happy for Rodrigo and I wish him
the best with his professional career," said USF
head coach George Kiefer.
Hidalgo, 19, recently completed his junior
season at the University of South Florida where he
was on the watch list for the Missouri Athletic
Club's Hermann Trophy award.

ranked second on the team in points with six goals
and two assists and was named to the All-Big East
team for the second consecutive season.
In 2005, Hidalgo was named to the NSCAA
All-South Region team and was ranked second in
the nation in assists per game (0.75). In 2004, he


was the conference's Co-Freshman of the Year.
'We were elated when Rodrigo fell into our
lap two weeks ago," said Thunder head 9oach
Amos Magee.
"We worked hard with his agent to get him
here and couldn't be more excited to add him to a
growing number of exciting young attacking play-
ers. He'll add an exciting dimension to our attack
as either a midfielder or forward.'
In Hidalgo's young career he has played with
the U17, U18 and U20 United States National
Teams and was in the United States Youth National
Residency Program in Bradenton, Florida from
2002-2004.

GAINESVILLE, Fla. They are often called
the forgotten survivors.
Spouses and partners of cancer patients, they
have made it through their loved ones' sleepless
sprint through treatment, only to embark on their
own physical and mental marathon for years after-.
ward.
Now a University of Florida study, the first to
examine the long-term impact of cancer treatment
on the quality of life of partners of blood and bone
marrow transplant recipients, reveals these care-
givers are nearly three and a half times more like-
ly to be clinically depressed than healthy peers and
frequently experience a host of other problems that
linger for years.
The findings appear today (April 10) in the
online issue of the Journal of Clinical Oncology.
"Part of what we're trying to do is bring atten-
tion to their experiences and the fact they are
indeed cancer survivors as well they are
impacted by cancer, both directly and indirectly,
and clearly are profoundly affected by it," said
Michelle M. Bishop, a research assistant professor
in the department of medicine's division of hema-
tology/oncology at UF's College of Medicine and
the paper's lead author. "We are concerned they
may be neglecting their own mental health needs.
The larger caregiver literature would say they are
likely to neglect their own physical health needs as
well."
The UF study, funded by the National
Institutes' of Health, highlights the strain of care-
giving at a time when cancer patients are dis-
charged "quicker and sicker" and as they live
longer than ever. The American Cancer Society
estimates there are about 10 million cancer sur-
vivors in the United States. And each year, about
40,000 cancer patients worldwide undergo bone
marrow or peripheral blood stem cell transplant,
according to the Center for International Blood
and Marrow Transplant Research.
UF researchers collaborating with colleagues
at Northwestern University, the University of
Kentucky and the Medical College of Wisconsin
collected data from 177 partner pairs from 40
North American transplantation centers.
The pairs had to be together since treatment,
which took place on average about seven years
before the study began. Survivors had to be in con-
tinuous remission from breast cancer, acute or
chronic leukemia, or lymphoma.
Participants, including a comparison group of
133 healthy peers, completed 26 standardized
questionnaires that evaluated their physical health
and numerous quality of life measures.
The findings add to a growing body of evi-
dence indicating that the strain caregivers experi-
ence can have long-term consequences. T
he study is the first to show that partners can
experience poorer outcomes than survivors many
years after treatment, particularly in social and
spiritual quality of life.
Researchers also found that while caregivers


reported fairly good physical health overall, they
reported fatigue and difficulty concentrating and
were less likely to note positive personal growth in
the aftermath of cancer caregiving. In addition,
they tended to experience emotional, sleep and
sexual problems at levels on par with survivors,
but perceived less social support, less marital sat-
isfaction and less spiritual well-being.
About 20 percent of caregivers experienced
clinically significant levels of depression, similar
to the survivor group (about 22 percent). In con-
trast, only 7.5 percent of controls experienced
depression. In addition, those reporting significant
depression and presumably at the highest need
of mental health services were least likely to be
receiving counseling or medication, Bishop said.
"We were surprised by some of the findings
because we had hypothesized that cancer survivors
would be at greatest risk of long-term emotional
and physical effects of treatment, as they were the
ones undergoing the rigorous treatment regimen,"
Bishop said.
The paper's senior author, Dr. John Wingard,
director of UF's blood and marrow transplant pro-
gram and deputy director of the UF Shands Cancer
Center, said families are subjected to "a pressure
cooker of emotions and challenges" in the wake of
a cancer diagnosis.
Treatment typically requires lengthy stays at a
specialized tertiary care center hundreds of miles
from home. Families frequently face financial
hardship as careers are put on hold and health-care
costs mount. Caregivers often juggle tending to
partners with raising children.
The study calls attention to the need for
screening family members and providing them
with information, support and counseling.
"There is a need for a lot more research in this
area," said Laurel Northouse, a professor of nurs-
ing at the .University of Michigan School of
Nursing who studies the impact of cancer on
patients and caregivers.
"We know the effects of illness extend to fam-
ily caregivers. I think this kind of important work
suggests we now need to move to interventions to
help patients and families. We know the stress is
there; now we need to help them get the kind of
services they need to cope."
Still, remarkably, many caregivers do quite
well, Bishop said.
"I don't want to give the impression that it's
all terrible and there's no hope," she said. "One of
the tremendous gifts of working with cancer sur-
vivors and their families is to witness the incredi-
ble resilience they often exhibit.
"What we're trying to do is learn from those
who seem to handle it fairly well without too many
big bumps in the road, and then also to identify
those who may be more vulnerable to problems,"
she added. "If we can identify them early, then we
can intervene early and make it more likely that
they too could have a smoother journey through
this process."

STOP LEG CRAMPS ""
BEFORE THEY STOP YOU. lCet


TALLAHASSEE, FL -
Attorney General Bill
McCollum commended the
efforts of federal, state and local
law enforcement agencies for
rescuing a 15-year-old girl
before she met a Jacksonville
man who sexually solicited her
over the internet. Authorities
with the Attorney General's
Child Predator CyberCrime Unit
arrested Daniel Lenz on Friday
after discovering that he had
attempted to lure the young girl
from New Hampshire to his
Jacksonville home.
Lenz, 26, met the girl
through a computer game and
after soliciting her for sex over
the internet, convinced her to
leave New Hampshire and travel
to meet him in Florida:
The girl was intercepted in
South Carolina and returned to
her home in New Hampshire,
through the coordinated efforts
of the Attorney General's Office,
the FBI Cybercrime Task-Force
in Jacksonville and New
Hampshire, as well as the U.S.
Attorney's Office for the Middle
District of Florida, the New
Hampshire Police Department,
the Clarendon County Sheriffs
Office of South Carolina, the
Jacksonville Sheriff's Office and
U.S. Immigration and Customs
Enforcement.
Lenz is currently being held
without bond at the Duval
County Pre-Trial Detention
Facility. He is charged with one
count of computer solicitation
and could face up to five years in
prison if convicted. The
CyberCrime Unit acted as a
member of the FBI CyberTask
Force in Jacksonville.
In the wake of the arrest,
Attorney General McCollum
reiterated the importance of
stronger laws prohibiting the
sexual solicitation of children

over the internet and the need for
statewide cybercrime units.
Lenz used "grooming" tech-
niques to gain the child's trust
and lure the victim to his home.
Grooming is a behavior where
the internet predator attempts to
demonstrate that he is closer in
age to the child in order for the
child to feel more comfortable
with the online communication.
By creating a false sense of trust
conveyed by a "common age,"
the person breaks down the
child's suspicions and defens-
es.The bill, which was unani-
mously approved by all refer-
enced Senate and House com-
mittees prior to the opening day
of the 2007 Legislative Session
and has received strong support
from both Senate President Ken
Pruitt and Speaker of the House
Marco Rubio, also strengthens
penalties for the possession or
distribution of child pornogra-
phy.
The Attorney General's
Child Predator CyberCrime Unit
in Jacksonville investigates and
prosecutes computer-facilitated
crimes against children.
The Unit's investigators and
prosecutors are specially trained
in current technologies, tactics
and the law and share their
expertise through educational'
programs and community
awareness efforts.
In less than two years, offi-
cers within the Unit have facili-
tated more than 35 arrests of
people who were creating, pos-
sessing or distributing child
pornography, or who sexually
solicited children online and
traveled to meet them to engage
in sexual acts with them.
A budget request by the
Attorney General will increase
staff members in the cybercrime
program from six to 56 to estab-
lish additional units statewide.
