While prices at the pump have dropped to a national average price of $2.975 since the highest National Gas Price on record of $ 3.227,
prices in the Tampa bay area after reaching a record price of $ 3.17 have dropped to $ 2.86 locally. The relief from the record prices for fuel
may be short lived due to marginal increases in inventories according to spokemen at the US Dept. of Energy and AAA.

Pinellas County Drivers that use Bryan Dairy to between transition
between Park Starkey and Belcher Rd. or others points east or west
will need to plan to detour to either Ulmerton Rd or Park Blvd for
"approximately" the next 21 days for Railroad crossing track repairs.

PINELLAS PARK Beginning at 12:01 a.m. on Friday, June 29,
Bryan Dairy Road just west of Belcher Road and east of Starkey
Road will be closed to vehicles, pedestrians and bicyclists for approx-
imately 21 days. The closing will encompass a span of Bryan Dairy
Road 200 feet to the east and 200 feet to the west of the railroad
crossing.
The primary detour routes are Belcher and Starkey roads, north
to Ulmerton Road. In addition, eastbound motorists are urged to take
113th Street or Seminole Boulevard (Alternate 19) north to Ulmerton
Road as a suggested alternate route during construction. The sug-
gested alternate route for westbound traffic is 66th Street North to
Ulmerton Road. Pinellas County has already begun its public infor-
mation outreach to notify commuters of this closure and advised
alternate routes.
Pinellas County Public Works and CSX Transportation (CSXT)
have planned the closure of Bryan Dairy Road to improve the railroad
crossing just west of Belcher Road. The work will close the road for
approximately three weeks while the crossing is rebuilt and associat-
ed roadway improvements are implemented. Local businesses will
be open and accessible to local traffic.

USF Quarterback Named to

Maxwell Award List
TAMPA USF sophomore quarterback
att Grothe, the 2006 Big East Rookie of the
ear, has become the first USF player to be
named to the Maxwell Award Watch List. The
akeland, Fla. native is one of 65 players on
he list for the award that is given to the most
outstanding college football player as selected
y the Maxwell Football Club.
to courtesy F Grothe was among the nation's leaders in
USF QB Matt Grothe total offense in 2006, passing for 2,576 yards
and running for 622 more as a freshman. He
threw 15 touchdown passes and added nine on the ground.
The Maxwell Award has been presented to the outstanding col-
legiate football player in America since 1937 and is named in honor
of Robert W. "Tiny" Maxwell. Brady Quinn of the University of
Notre Dame was the recipient of the 70th Maxwell Award for his out-
standing performance in 2006.
Semifinalists for the Maxwell Award will be announced in early
November and three finalists will be announced November 26th. The
winner will be announced as part of the ESPN Home Depot College
Football Awards Show on December 6, 2007. The formal presenta-
tion of the award will be made at the Maxwell Football Club Awards
Gala hosted by Harrah's Entertainment Atlantic City in March 2008.


SAINT PETERSBURG Prices at the pump did decrease after
setting record prices over the Memorial Day weekend, but while
prices have dropped since that record high, the Department of
Energy's Short Term Energy Outlook predicts that the relief will be
short-lived.
Quoting the report: "St orng demand for gasoline combined with
low gasoline inventories I ade oil, prices that are expect('I a.
average over $65 per barrel for West Texas Intermediate (WTIJ are
likely to keep gasoline prices over $3 per gallon through the summer
months.
Retail regular grade motor gasoline prices are projected to aver-
age $3.05 per gallon this summer compared with the $2.84 per gal-
lon average of last summer. The May average monthly gasoline
pump price reached $3.15 per gallon and is expected to fall in June
and July then rise again in August to $3.11 per gallon."
For reasons unknown, instead of building inventories, AAA
reported from DOE reports that "refineries were operating at a 17-


year low (for this time of year) at 87.6% capacity."
"History shows that refinery output -- especially in June --
should be closer to 93 percent to ensure adequate inventorty for the
high-demand months of July and August,"
However, that same report indicated that gasoline inventories
increased a bit more than anticipated "but certainly not enough to see
t~- Randy Bly, Director of Community Relations for AAA Auto Club
S6uth.
In one week, gas prices in Florida, Georgia and Tennessee have
decreased by 3.3, 3.2 and 2.5 cents respectively. It is the smallest
decrease in the past few weeks.
Crude oil closed on the NYMEX Wednesday at a price of $
68.97 a barrel. Industry Analysis now predict that the falling prices
of Gas have come to a standstill and the possibility of rising fuel
prices may begin by July instead of August.


UF computer system could help



growers count fruit before harvest


GAINESVILLE Farmers
are told not to count chickens
before they hatch, but for citrus
growers it's a little different -
knowing how much fruit is on
their trees can help them make
better decisions about managing
and harvesting the crop.
So University of Florida
experts are developing an elec-
tronic system to "see" and count
fruit, a concept called machine
vision. It could be commercially
available by the end of the
decade.
"Basically, you use a cam-
era and a computer to mimic
what a human being can do,"
said Daniel Lee, an associate
professor with UF's Institute of
Food and Agricultural Sciences
who leads the project.
This week Lee presented
two papers on the system at the
American Society of
Agricultural and Biological
Engineers' annual meeting. In
one, the system was used to
count green oranges in the field
and had an 85 percent success
rate.
By knowing their expected
yield, growers can tell how much
time, labor and equipment will
be needed for harvest, said Lee,


a faculty member in the agricul-
tural and biological engineering
department.
Because the system includes
a Global Positioning System
receiver and notes the position of
each tree, it can help growers
manage specific areas for better
productivity.
Traditionally, orange groves
have been managed in blocks -
land units ranging from 5 to 500
acres. Each is managed as
though it had no variations in
soil fertility, irrigation and other
characteristics. But that's not the
reality.
"Yield is not constant in the
whole grove," Lee said. "Some
places you see more fruit, some
places you have less fruit. So
(with this system) you can do
things differently at different
locations."
Similar methods are used
for crops such as cotton, pota-
toes and tomatoes, he said. It's
part of a trend called precision
agriculture, the use of technolo-
gy to better manage crops.
But it will be another two or
three years before the system can
be sold because researchers are
addressing challenges inherent
in machine vision, he said. One


is uneven lighting, which makes
it hard for the camera to detect
fruit in the dark recesses of the
tree canopy. The other is detect-
ing fruit partially obstructed by
leaves or other objects.
The system includes a digi-
tal camera with special optical
filters, a portable computer, GPS
receiver and software designed
by Lee and his graduate stu-
dents. The camera and computer
are mounted on a truck and driv-
en through groves.
In smaller groves it's possi-
ble to photograph every tree, Lee
said. But for those covering
thousands of acres, operators
would photograph trees in repre-
sentative parts of the grove and
use the results to make projec-
tions.
The project is funded by the
Florida Citrus Production
Research Advisory Council, an
industry organization supported
by growers, and also by a state
initiative that supports research
and education programs for cit-
rus mechanical harvesting.
Currently, Florida's citrus
yield is estimated each month
during harvest season by the
U.S. Department of Agriculture,
using a system that relies on


hand counts of specific trees, as
well as tree size, Lee said.
Machine vision could be a
big help to some growers, espe-
cially for predicting yield when
the fruits are still green, said Esa
Ontermaa, precision agriculture
coordinator for Lykes Brothers
Inc., one of the state's largest cit-
rus growers.
"I can't really answer for
everybody in the industry, I think,
but it would definitely be highly
beneficial for us," said
Ontermaa, based in Lake Placid.
"We utilize crop estimation as
one of our primary tools to proj-
ect toward the future. And that
(machine vision) would allow a
whole lot better picture of what
the coming crop would be."
Ontermaa said his company
already uses precision agricul-
ture to manage its groves. One of
Lee's recent studies used
machine vision to count ripe
fruit just prior to harvest in a
Lykes grove.
"That's why Dr. Lee's work
is very interesting to us, because
it would integrate very well with
what we already do."

Get those oil drills


going at top speed

by Edwin J. Feulner, Ph.D.
Welcome to the first summer driving season with gasoline at
$3.40 per gallon -- and up.
Lawmakers have responded, predictably, by vowing to do some-
thing to bring prices down. Unfortunately, when Congress gets
involved, prices usually go up. Take alternative fuels. Lawmakers
love to tout their support for ethanol mandates, and farmers here in
Illinois share their enthusiasm. But, in the big picture, ethanol is bad
for Americans, farmers included.
For drivers, the problem is that ethanol costs more to make than
gasoline, yet provides fewer miles per gallon. Consumers end up fill-
ing up more often and paying more each time they do -- both at the
pump and through ethanol subsidies.
Meanwhile, because so much of our corn crop is being used to
make ftiel, there's less available for food. Everybody winds up pay-
ing more for corn and corn-fed beef and poultry. Instead of settling
the energy market, Washington has only disrupted it.
The Senate is considering legislation requiring the nation to use
36 billion gallons of ethanol and other renewable fuels by the year
2022. That's an ambitious goal, especially considering that the cur-
rent target is 7.5 billion gallons and is costing us enough.
Lawmakers assume somebody will develop a way to produce
more than 20 million gallons of cellulosic ethanol (ethanol not made
from corn), which would require a major technological breakthrough.
If they're wrong, we'll all pay the price.
Meanwhile, any individual farmer who thinks federal ethanol
mandates will help may be in for a rude awakening. Because 96 per-
cent of the world's population lives outside the United States, our
farmers must be able to export if they're going to thrive. High prices
.keep American corn out of foreign markets.
Yet those same artificially high corn prices will tempt more peo-
ple to plant corn, both here and in other countries. That could even-
tually lead to the overproduction of corn and end up triggering a sud-
den collapse in corn prices. Something similar happened to wheat
farmers in the 1920s, creating the "Dust Bowl" that threatened to
wipe out American agriculture. It could happen again to corn farmers
if our government keeps meddling in the agricultural market.
Ethanol isn't the answer, but one solution can be found under
U.S. soil and territorial waters. The United States has plenty of
domestic oil and natural gas. Yet we're the only nation that restricts
access to a substantial portion of our domestic energy potential.
We need to allow oil exploration in the Arctic National Wildlife
Refuge. If the federal government would let companies drill in just a
tiny portion (about the size of an airport) of the 19 million acre
refuge, we could begin recovering the estimated 10 billion barrels of
oil believed to be there.
Meanwhile, the federal government has put 85 percent of feder-
ally controlled offshore areas off limits, including the Pacific and
Atlantic coasts. The Interior Department estimates those areas hold
19 billion barrels of oil and 84 trillion cubic feet of gas, just waiting
to be tapped. And as Hurricane Katrina proved, offshore drilling is
more environmentally secure than ever.
It'll take years to bring this domestic oil to market. But it will
always be years away until lawmakers act. It's time for them to act.
But they must take the right steps, not merely ramp up the failed poli-
cies that have exacerbated today's high gasoline prices.
Ed Feulner is president of the Heritage Foundation.

NASA's Lansat Satillites have been watching the construction of a
dam so large, you can see it with the naked eye from space.


Some call it the eighth wonder of world. Others say it's the next
Great Wall of China. Upon completion in 2009, the Three Gorges
Dam along China's Yangtze River will be the world's largest hydro-
electric power generator and one of the few man-made structures so
enormous that it's actually visible to the naked eye from space.
NASA's Landsat satellites have provided detailed, vivid views of the
dam since construction began in 1994.
The Yangtze River is the third largest river in the world, stretch-
ing more than 3,900 miles across China before reaching its mouth
near Shanghai. Historically, the river has been prone to massive
flooding, overflowing its banks about once every ten years. The dam
is designed to greatly improve flood control on the river and protect
the 15 million people and 3.7 million acres of farmland in the lower
Yangtze flood plains.
Observations from the NASA-built Landsat satellites provide an
overview of the dam's construction. The first image shows the region
prior to start of the project. By 2000, construction along each river-
bank was underway, but sediment-filled water still flowed through a
narrow channel near the river's south bank. The 2004 images show
limited development of the main wall and the partial filling of the
reservoir, including numerous side canyons. By mid-2006, construc-
tidn of the main wall was completed and a reservoir more than .2
miles kilometersr) across had filled just upstream of the dam.'
SEn'gi ered to store moree than 5 trillion gallons of water, the
Three Gorges Dam is designed to produce more than 18,000
megawatts of electricity when all 26 turbines become operational in
2009-twenty times the power of Hoover Dam. The reservoir will
also allow 10,000-ton freighters to enter the nation's interior, opening
a region burgeoning with agricultural and manufactured products,
increasing commercial shipping access to China's cities.
While Landsat is a premier research tool for observing changes
on the Earth's surface, other NASA satellites are also helpful in deter-
mining how changing land cover and use may influence climate and
the environment. Just as transforming forested lands into cities can
change the local climate, scientists have found evidence that Three
Gorges Dam and its enormous reservoir might have a similar effect.
In a recent study, researchers used computer models and data
from NASA's Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission satellite to esti-
mate how the dam's construction impacted area rainfall. Information
from NASA's Terra and Aqua satellites also revealed the dam's effect
on land surface temperatures.


"The satellite data and computer modeling clearly indicate that
the land use change associated with the dam's construction has
increased precipitation in the region between the Daba and Qinling
mountains," said lead author Liguang Wu of NASA Goddard Space
Flight Center, Greenbelt, Md., and the University of Maryland -
Baltimore County. The land changes also reduced rainfall in the
region immediately surrounding Three Gorges Dam after the dam's
water level abruptly rose in June 2003.
The researchers were surprised to see that the dam affected rain-
fall over such a large area -- a 62-square-mile region -- rather than
just 6 miles projected in previous studies.
Land surface temperature changes were also found to occur in
the area where more rain fell. In the daytime, temperatures between
the Daba and the Qinling mountains decreased by an average of 1.2
degrees Fahrenheit (0.67 degrees Celsius). Where there was more
rainfall, there were more clouds, which reduced the amount of sun-
light and heat that reached the land surface, creating cooler daytime
temperatures.
The study suggests that the cause of these temperature changes
was the expansion of the width of the Yangtze River and the forma-
tion of the dam's reservoir. After construction, a 401-square-mile
reservoir formed in the mountainous area. Before the dam, the
Yangtze River'was only one-thud :t' a mile in width. The larger mass
of 'water created a "lake effect," causing cooler temperatures and
increased rainfall between the Daba and Qinling mountains, but less
rainfall in the immediate vicinity of the reservoir.
When the dam becomes fully operational in 2009 and the reser-
voir reaches its peak size, scientists predict these regional tempera-
ture and precipitation changes may increase even more. The 2006
study was published in the American Geophysical Union's
Geophysical Research Letters.
As the world's landscape continues to evolve, NASA satellites
will be there to monitor and better understand its effects. The next in
the series of Landsat satellites -- the Landsat Data Continuity
Mission -- is planned to launch in 2011. Landsat satellites have orbit-
ed the Earth since 1972, collecting valuable information on Earth's
surface to support global change research and applications in agri-
culture, business, science and government. These data constitute the
longest record of Earth's continental surfaces as seen from space.

Barrett Ross, 9, receives an infusion of stem cells removed from his
umbilical cord blood at the University of Florida Clinical Research
Center. Barrett is one of 12 children with diabetes who are
participating in a nationwide study to determine if cells from their own
cord blood could help slow or even stop the progression of diabetes.
UF pediatric endocrinologist Michael Haller (right), the study's lead
investigator, monitors each child for two years after the infusion.

Umbilical cord blood may safely preserve insulin production in
children newly diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, according to findings
from a small national pilot study presented today (June 25) at the
American Diabetes Association's 67th Scientific Sessions in Chicago.
University of Florida researchers sought to determine whether it
is feasible to use a patient's own cord blood stem cells to neutralize
the body's autoimmune attack on the pancreas and help restore the
organ's ability to make insulin, which regulates how the body uses
sugar and other nutrients for energy.


"This is the first attempt at using cord blood as a potential thera-
py for type 1 diabetes. We hope these cells can either lessen the
immune system's attack on the pancreas or possibly introduce stem
cells that can differentiate into insulin-producing cells," said pediatric
endocrinologist Michael Haller, M.D., an assistant professor of med-
icine at UF's College of Medicine.
"While this is a relatively small study we can confidently say this
is safe, and we have seen metabolic and immunologic changes to sug-
gest there may be benefit," Haller said. "It's not curing diabetes, but
this is a first step to help us learn more and get us moving in the right
direction."
Researchers got the idea in part from a patient's father who had
read that scientists elsewhere were able to reverse diabetes in mice by
taking bone marrow from one animal and infusing it into its identical
sibling without using chemotherapy or radiation therapy. And in the
lab, scientists have been able to coax stem cells isolated from cord
blood into making insulin. The man asked UF researchers whether
giving a patient his or her own cord blood could have a similarly pos-
itive effect.
"We thought this was a very reasonable question and would be a
safe approach as long as we refrained from using chemotherapy, radi-
ation therapy or manipulating the cells. Since there are a lot more
people out there who are banking cord blood than there were five
years ago, we felt this approach would become increasingly attrac-
tive," Haller said.
A decade ago less than 1 percent of Americans were banking
cord blood; today, that figure has grown to about 4 percent and is ris-
ing, Haller said. Cord blood is rich with cells that help regulate the
immune system but until now has typically been used to restore a
patient's immune system after treatments for leukemia or lymphoma.
UF researchers identified children recently diagnosed with type
1 diabetes whose families banked their umbilical cord blood at birth.
Most were still producing a small amount of insulin. The researchers
then gave seven patients ages 2 to 7 intravenous infusions of stem
cells isolated from their own cord blood. (They have since treated an
additional four children.) The patients were evaluated for the next

With help from Florida State
University's Office of National
Fellowships, 10 FSU students
and alumni have received the
prestigious Fulbright Award-
the most in a single year for the
university.
This year's tally of Fulbright
recipients tops FSU's 2006
record of eight-and is a sign of
the university's continuing com-
mitment to help students pursue
opportunities for educational and
personal enrichment, according
to Jamie Purcell, director of the
Office of National Fellowships.
"FSU is really becoming a
powerhouse in the Fulbright
competition," Purcell said. "This
is truly a sterling achievement
for these students, the faculty
and staff who have mentored and
supported them, and for the uni-
versity."
Steve Uhlfelder, a
Tallahassee attorney and former
member of the FSU Board of
Trustees who also chairs the J.
William Fulbright Foreign
Scholarship Board, called the 10
Fulbrights "an amazing feat.
Very few universities have this
many Fulbright recipients in a
single year. It is a tribute both to
the hard work of the students
themselves and to that of the uni-
versity faculty and administra-
tion."
The award winners are
Natalie Binder, Dan Carlson,


Jamal Grimes, Megan Hewitt,
Katie Hodges, Timothy Lorton,
Anna Philp, Matt Phipps,
Natasha Rocas and Nathan
Timpano. With their awards,
they will study, conduct research
and teach English overseas next
year in eight different countries
across the globe. FSU students
Thomas Henderson and Douglas
Westlake were selected as alter-
nates.
Purcell said the Fulbright
Program for U.S. Students (see
here) awards only the highest-
caliber students with a genuine
commitment to cultural engage-
ment, and it has an extensive
selection process. Fulbright is
the largest international
exchange program in the United
States. Sponsored by the U.S.
Department of State, it offers
opportunities for students, schol-
ars and professionals to study
and conduct research interna-
tionally, as well as worldwide
opportunities for teaching.
"These remarkable students
are a living memorial to the lega-
cy of Senator Fulbright and his
commitment to peace and cross-
cultural understanding," Purcell
said.
J. William Fulbright was a
U.S. senator whose bill, signed
into law by President Harry
Truman in 1946, launched the
program that bears his name.


Student


SAmbassadors


Selected for Japan


Sister City Trip


St. Petersburg, Fla. (June 4, 2007) -- Two local high school jun-
iors, Zoe Williams and Kanyon McLean, will travel to Takamatsu,
Japan as student ambassadors for three weeks this summer. Selected
by the city's International Relations Committee, they will represent
St. Petersburg for the annual official Sister City visit, July 8 to 28.
Northeast High School student Zoe Williams and St. Petersburg
High School student, Kanyon McLean, are preparing for their trip
that includes visiting a Takamatsu Senior High School for one week
and living with a different host family each week. They will also meet
with Mayor Onishi, the newly elected mayor of Takamatsu, bringing
gifts and greetings from our city and Mayor Rick Baker:
"I have a longstanding interest in Japan and its customs and look
forward to this once in a lifetime journey where I can immerse myself
in the language and culture of this country," Zoe Williams said.
"While we will be able to learn about Japanese culture and traditions,
we will also be sharing with Japanese citizens our knowledge and
important aspects about our American culture," said Kanyon
McLean.
St. Petersburg, Florida and Takamatsu, Japan have participated in
the international program as Sister cities for 47 years. For the student
summer trip, applications were distributed to all public and private
high schools in January and the two finalists were selected earlier this
year through a process that includes a written application, essay and
interview.
After returning from the Sister City summer trip, Zoe and
Kanyon will be available for interviews to promote the program for
next year. Each student has agreed to share her experiences with stu-
dents, civic groups and other interested citizens during their senior
year of high school.

See "Cord Blood" continued from page 3
two years to measure how much insulin they were making on their
Is own and to assess blood sugar levels and the function of key immune
system cells.
In the first six months, they required significantly less insulin-on
average 0.45 versus 0.69 units of insulin per kilogram per day-and
maintained better control of blood sugar levels than children of com-
parable age with type 1 diabetes who were randomly selected from
the clinic population. The researchers also noted that the children who
received cord blood infusions had higher levels of regulatory immune
cells in their blood six months after the infusion, on average 9 percent
of the total cell volume compared with 7.21 percent at the time of
Infusion.
"This isn't a cure-all. We think that giving these cells is essential-
ly providing some immunotherapy and downregulating the autoim-
munity these patients have," Haller said. "Realistically, we hope to
Protect what's left'of their insulin-production for an extended period
o of time. We think the immune regulation hypothesis is more likely
than the hypothesis that stem cells are forming insulin prbducing cells
on their own."
The idea would be to intervene and repair any early damage dur-
ing the "honeymoon period" many patients enjoy the first several
months after diagnosis during which insulin needs are minimal,, he
added.

S "Our group's concept is that we won't be able to cure diabetes
without a combination therapy approach," Haller said. "It's naive to
think that with one agent we're going to reverse a very complicated
disease like type 1 diabetes. We probably need to go at it with multi-
e pie drugs to attack the various facets of the disease. Curing type 1 dia-
Sbetes may require a similar approach to treating AIDS or cancer. The
care of patients with these complex diseases did not markedly
d- improve until combination therapies were administered. I suspect it
will be the same with diabetes."
The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and the National
SInstitutes of Health funded the study, with support from UF's Clinical
Research Center. UF researchers next plan to enroll up to 23 patients
who will receive cord blood infusions. They also will seek to improve
on the small metabolic and immunologic advantages they've noted so
far, possibly by testing the addition of one of the many drugs current-
ly being used in other type 1 diabetes trials.
"We need to decide.which agent will work well when combined
with the cord blood," Haller said. "Right now we are not manipulat-
ing the cells. We are simply infusing the cord blood. In addition to
adding other drugs, we may need to see if we can take the key cells
from cord blood.and safely manipulate them to improve on our find-
ings."
S The application of human cord blood in the treatment of type 1
Diabetes is of extreme importance, said Colin P. McGuckin, a profes-
sor of regenerative medicine at Britain's University of Newcastle upon
Tyne Medical School.
"The work carried out in the University of Florida has led the
field in showing that cord blood contains cells which can quieten the
immune system attack on the patient's pancreas," McGuckin said.
"We know that cord blood contains very specialized cells which are
there to stop rejection of the placenta of the child to the mother dur-
ing pregnancy, and these are likely to be the ones which are useful for
treatment in type 1 diabetes. Together with our 'work, showing that
beta cells producing insulin can be formed using cord blood, we are
on track to help diabetes patients in the future. The first step, though,
has to be quietening the immune system attack, and this is why the
work in Gainesville is so important."





FWC seeks input





on





peregrine falcon





The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC)
is asking the public for information and data on the biological status
of the peregrine falcon until the end of July.
The Commission is requesting specific information about popu-
lation size and trends, distribution and range, threats to the species,
published population viability models, and specific aspects of the
species' life history that may influence its status.
The request for information is part of the first phase of a two-
phase process the FWC uses to classify imperiled species. Florida's
three imperiled classifications are endangered, threatened and species
of special concern.
During its June meeting, the Commission established a biologi-
cal review panel to evaluate the bird's current endangered species sta-
tus. Staff will present the panel's biological assessment at a future
FWC meeting with Commissioners making the final listing determi-
nation.
Local, county, state and federal agencies, stakeholders and the

public may submit written comments to: Dr. James A. Rodgers Jr.,
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, 4005 S. Main
St., Gainesville, FL 32601 or by e-mail to peregrine@MyFWC.com.
The deadline for submitting comments is 5 p.m. July 31.

Atlantis Crew Home Safe

Pinellas News Friday, June 29, 2007 Page 7


Future optimism buoys



Florida's



consumer confidence


-- -- I

The crew of mission STS-117 gather in front of Space Shuttle Atlantis after landing at Edwards Air Force Base,
California.


The STS-117 mission astronauts returned to
Johnson Space Center on Saturday, June 23. Their
return was marked by a traditional welcome home
ceremony at Ellington Field in Houston.
On Friday, June 29, Space Shuttle Atlantis is
scheduled to begin its journey back to Kennedy
Space Center "piggy-backed" on top of a modified
747 jetliner called the Shuttle Carrier Aircraft.
Known as a ferry-flight, the orbiter will make
the trip from Edwards Air Force Base in California
to Kennedy's Shuttle Landing Facility in one to
two days, depending on weather conditions.
Atlantis landed at Edwards concluding a suc-
cessful assembly mission to the International
Space Station with Commander Rick Sturckow
and Pilot Lee Archambault at the controls. Atlantis
landed at 3:49 p.m. EDT on June 22.
The STS-117 crew began its mission June 8
and arrived at the station June 10. They quickly
began work to install the Starboard 3 and 4 (S3/S4)
truss structure to the outpost and retracted a set of
arrays on the Port 6 (P6) truss. The (S3/S4) con-
tains a new set of solar arrays that increases station


power-generation capabilities. The P6 will be relo-
cated during a future assembly mission.
Mission Specialists Patrick Forrester, John
"Danny" Olivas, Jim Reilly and Steven Swanson
conducted a total of four spacewalks to activate the
S3/S4 and to retract the P6 arrays. During the third
spacewalk, Olivas repaired an out of position ther-
mal blanket on the left orbital maneuvering system
pod.
Landing also marked the end of a record-set-
,ting spaceflight by Mission Specialist Suni
Williams. She broke the record for the longest
spaceflight by a woman early in the morning on
June 16.
Williams' journey began in December with the
launch of STS-116. She lived on the space station
for six months before switching places on the STS-
117 crew with Clayton Anderson, who is now a
flight engineer on the station. When Atlantis land-
ed, she had accumulated 194 days, 18 hours and 58
minutes during her spaceflight.
STS-117 is the 118th shuttle mission and 21st
mission to visit the space station. The next mission,
STS-118, is slated to launch in August.


GAINESVILLE, Fla. -
Consumer confidence in Florida
rose one point to 83 in June, one
month after dropping to its low-
est level in 19 months, a new
University of Florida study
finds.
The small increase was due
to increased optimism over
future economic conditions in
the United States. Expectations
about U.S. economic conditions
over the next year rose two
points to 76, while expectations
of U.S. economic conditions
over the next five years rose six
points to 84.
Perceptions of personal
finances now compared with a
year ago remained the same at
79, while expectations about
finances one year from now fell
two points to 89. Perceptions of
whether it is a good time to buy
big-ticket items fell five points to
86. All five of the index compo-
nents are lower than at this time
a year ago, and the overall index
is down five points from a year
ago, the study shows.
"Although confidence
increased slightly in June, it was
well within the margin of error
for the survey," said Chris
McCarty, director of the Survey
Research Center at UF's Bureau
of Economic and Business
Research. "Consumer confi-
dence doesn't differ much from
the previous month's reading.
Interestingly, confidence among
low-income households, those
making less than $30,000 a year,
has held exactly at 70 every
month since March. The move-


ment in confidence is entirely
due to changes in the attitudes of
middle- and higher-income
households."
Gas prices in Florida, a key
driver of consumer confidence
for the past two years, have
decreased more than 14 cents per
gallon through the month of
June, primarily because of unex-
pected increases in imports and
more inventory. Prices are still
13 cents higher than the same
time a year ago and are expected
to increase again in July as holi-
day travel picks up, McCarty
said.
Although most lower-
income families have adjusted to
higher gas prices, there may be
some additional negative impact
on middle- and upper-income
households if prices rise too
much, McCarty said.
Retail sales nationally post-
ed an unexpected increase in
May, largely because of gasoline
sales. However, other segments
that had been experiencing diffi-
culty, such as building supplies,
posted gains.
McCarty said he expects the
problems in the housing industry
to continue dampening con-
sumer confidence. The National
Association of Realtors reported
Monday that nationwide sales of
existing single-family homes in
May dropped to their lowest
level in four years, and the medi-
an price dropped for a 10th con-
secutive month.
"Moving forward, we still
expect consumer confidence in
Florida to decline as the effects


of the housing downturn intensi-
fy," McCarty said. "The most
recent housing data show that
nationally, and particularly here
in Florida, the prices of existing
homes have not fallen to a level
to attract enough buyers to work
through the massive inventory.
"As prices fall, this will
affect consumers who count on
rising home values to support
spending though home equity
lines of credit and refinancing.
This is still the big question
moving forward into the summer
- will the effects of housing spill
over into other parts of the econ-
omy, or will it be contained to
the housing sector? Our opinion
is that the effects, at least herein
Florida, will be far-reaching."
The research center con-
ducts the Florida Consumer
Attitude Survey monthly.
Respondents are 18 or older and
live in households telephoned
randomly. The preliminary index
for June was conducted from
400 responses. The error rate is
plus or minus 5 percent.
Consumer confidence is
designed to help predict buying
patterns by measuring the mood
of consumers toward purchasing.
Although other economic indica-
tors also predict buying patterns,
consumer confidence tends to be
available sooner. The index is
benchmarked to 1966, so a value
of 100 represents the same level
of confidence for the year. The
value of the index is in compar-
ing changes over time rather than
looking at an isolated month.


UF geographer: ew tools to fore- ish and Wildlife


cast hurricane rainfall inland Commission


GAINESVILLE, Fla. -All eyes are on where
hurricanes make landfall, but the massive storms
actually cause the most deaths inland, where severe
flooding often surprises residents.
Now, researchers are learning how to predict
where tropical storms and hurricanes will dump the
most rain even days after and hundreds of
miles away from landfall.
In a paper in the current issue of the journal
Professional Geographer, Corene Matyas, an assis-
tant professor of geography at the University of
Florida, outlines new tools to predict how the
storm's intensity, distance it has moved inland and
landscape topography alters its "rain shields" -
the bands of heavy rain so visible in Doppler radar
images. Among other things, her tools proved
adept at modeling observations that when hurri-
canes or tropical storms encounter the Texas hill
country or the Appalachian Mountains, their rain
shields tend to line up in the same direction and
with the same orientation as the underlying topog-
raphy.
"There are a lot of different things that can
affect where the rainfall can occur in the storm and
how heavy that rainfall will be," Matyas said. "Our
goal is to work toward predicting how those factors
will determine the rainfall pattern."
Historically, hurricanes have proven most fatal
at landfall, with coastal residents overcome by
storm surge and high winds. But over the past four
decades, forecasters have become more skilled at
predicting hurricanes' tracks over open water,
enabling most coastal residents to flee or prepare
for the storms well in advance.
As a result, the highest proportion of hurricane
and tropical fatalities has shifted inland. One study
cited in the Matyas paper found 59 percent of
deaths from tropical storms or hurricanes between
1970 and 1999 occurred because of heavy rainfall
rather than wind or storm surge. As storms track
inland, they inevitably ensnare more cities and
towns. In 1998, Tropical Depression Charley left
20 people dead near Del Rio, Texas, more than 200
miles from where the storm made landfall, Matyas
notes.
Researchers are developing some models for
forecasting inland rain patterns, but they have dif-
ficulty accounting for the lopsided or elongated
shape the pattern often takes, with most if not all
rain falling on one side of the storm. A common
assumption is that rainfall will decrease as the hur-
ricane moves away from the ocean, which is gen-
erally true but may be obviated by other weather
systems and local landscape.


Matyas' goal was to find new tools to improve
the models.
She studied radar data from 13 U.S. storms
that made landfall between 1997 and 2003, then
used a common tool in geography geographical
information systems, or GIS to measure how
rainfall patterns changed. GIS is a computer sys-
tem that makes it possible to analyze spatial pat-
terns of data. It is often used to track things such as
voting patterns, but using GIS in meteorology -
where spatial patterns change is relatively new,
Matyas said.
Matyas outlined the edge of the rain shields
using radar data, then measured their shapes by
calculating characteristics such'as the position of
their center of mass. She repeated the analysis for
each hour that the storms were over land. She then
used a statistical technique, discriminant analysis,
to determine which shape and size best place the
storms into groups based on their intensity, how far
they travel inland and the topography they
encounter. The success of the discriminant analy-
ses indicates that these shape measures could serve
as predictive tools for future rainfall models.
In a demonstration of the potential, the shape
measures helped to confirm that that the orienta-
tion of storms' rain shields corresponds closely to
the orientation of the land topography.
With hurricanes crossing Texas hill country,
the rain shields tend to line up parallel to the main
axis of the hills, running west to east. Storms near
the Appalachians also line up parallel to the moun-
tains, whose axis runs southwest to northeast, with
the heaviest rain consistently occurring to the west
of the track. This is due to a combination of the
mountains and a wedge of cold and dry continental
air forcing the moist air upward, causing the water
vapor to condense and fall to the ground as rain.
This phenomenon does not happen with the Texas
storms, as the dry continental air masses over
Texas are similar in temperature to tropical moist
air masses that accompany hurricanes.
Frank Marks, a research meteorologist and
director of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administration's Hurricane Research Division,
said Matyas' conclusions "have a lot of merit in
terms of understanding the structure, size and
shape of the rain shield."
He said the next step is to add rainfall amount
to the variables. The end goal: a model that will
provide inland residents with the same targeted
advance warnings and watches that coastal resi-
dents get today but for heavy rainfall rather than
wind or storm surge.


concludes



Melbourne meeting


MELBOURNE The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC)
wrapped up its two-day meeting at Melbourne after
addressing a broad range of issues.
Commissioners approved a draft rule outlining
bonding requirements for exhibiting potentially
dangerous animals and venomous reptiles, a
requirement passed by the Legislature during the
2007 session. Subject to the governor's approval,
final public hearings for the draft rule will be at the
September Commission meeting.
Commissioners also passed a new rule con-
cerning FWC-managed lands and approved mem-
bers of a panel to evaluate a petition to change the
listing status of the peregrine falcon during 2007-
08.
Following an overview of the imperiled
species management plan process, Commissioners
reviewed drafts of management plans for mana-
tees, gopher tortoises and Panama City crayfish.
Final consideration of the management plans for
the manatee and gopher tortoise will take place at
the FWC's September meeting in St. Petersburg.
Final consideration for the Panama City crayfish
will take place at the Commission's February
meeting in Panama City.
Commissioners also approved an interim poli-
cy to end entombment of gopher tortoises requir-
ing developers to relocate them, rather than allow
the animals to be buried in their burrows amid-
development. The interim policy will remain in
effect until the FWC can launch the new permitting
framework, proposed in the draft gopher tortoise
management plan.
FWC staff presented an array of proposed
changes to the Alligator Management Program.
Commissioners directed the staff to proceed with
developing rules to change some of the allowable
methods of taking alligators and to step up efforts
'to make Floridians more aware of ways to coexist
with alligators peacefully.
In addition, Commissioners approved land-
acquisition proposals including the Nature
Conservancy's Davidson Ranch parcel as a mitiga-
tion park, the Nature Conservancy's donation of
the Janet Butterfield Brooks Preserve as a mitiga-
tion park and two donated Nature Conservancy


parcels as additions to Chinsegut Wildlife and
Environmental Area.
Concerning marine issues, the FWC approved
rule amendments for snook that lower the daily
recreational bag limit from two fish to one on
Florida's Atlantic Coast and narrow the current 27-
34 inches total length snook slot limit to 28-32
inches in Atlantic waters and 28-33 inches in Gulf,
Everglades National Park and Monroe County
whters.
Rule amendments also add the first half of
December and all of February to the closed harvest
season in Gulf, Everglades and Monroe County
waters and allow snook anglers statewide to carry
more than one cast net aboard a vessel. The new
snook rules will be in place in time for the reopen-
ing of snook season in September.
Commissioners also discussed proposed new
rules that would allow licensed trap fishers to des-
ignate people to recover and possess their traps
when the governor and FWC declare an emer-
gency. The proposed rules also would exempt
local, state and federal officials from having to get
FWC approval before removing traps, derelict
traps and trap debris from areas where trapping is
prohibited.
In addition, the Commission proposed a rule
amendment that would allow recreational fishers to
use fold-up blue crab traps with square sides. A
final public hearing on all of these proposed rules
will be scheduled for the September Commission
meeting.
In other marine fisheries action,
Commissioners directed staff to continue to work
with stakeholders and develop a full range of man-
agement options for the Atlantic and Gulf coasts
that work toward achieving a 40-percent escape-
ment goal for red drum.
The FWC also heard an update on issues and
proposed rules for spiny lobster and discussed fed-
eral fisheries management issues.
The meeting agenda is available online at
MyFWC.com/commission/2007/Jun07/index.html

The next FWC meeting is set for Sept. 12-14
in St. Petersburg.

Sturgeon Collision Injures Old Town Child


A jumping sturgeon injured a 6-year-old
girl Sunday while she was riding in a boat on
the Suwannee River near the Yellow Jacket
boat ramp.
Taylor Lane Owen, 6, of Old Town, was
a passenger in a 20-foot Proline vessel,
according to Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC) officials.
Taylor was riding with her mother,
Wendy Gordon, 31; her father, Jack Gordon,
48; and her brother, Justin Gordon, 2; all
from' Old Town, and her aunt, Kelly Claflin,
20, ofWilliston.
The boat was just north of the Yellow
Jacket boat ramp, approximately 9 miles
west of Chiefland, FWC officials said. The
vessel, operated by Jack Gordon, was travel-
ing at about 20 miles per hour.
Claflin was sitting on the left side of the
boat between the bow and the console,
behind Taylor, who was on a folding chair on
the bow of the vessel. A 3-foot sturgeon
jumped out of the river, striking Taylor and


Clafin. Taylor suffered a leg fracture and
Clafin sustained bruises and cuts.
Taylor was transported to Shands
Hospital in Gainesville by emergency med-
ical services personnel.
The sturgeon jumped back into the
water.
"This is the third confirmed sturgeon
strike of 2007," said Maj. Bruce Hamlin,
regional commander for FWC's North
Central Region, based in Lake City. "Four
people have been injured. That's four too
many."
The major went on to say the FWC is
putting increased emphasis on the public
awareness campaign about the sturgeon in
the Suwannee.
"We have been actively engaging the
public on the dangers of these jumping stur-
geon for more than a year. We had 10 people
injured last year, and we've had four'people
injured this year. FWC has placed warning
signs at all the boat ramps along the river,
and we are distributing decals, warning


ACLU Addresses Free



Speech Issues Created



St. Pete Event ordinance


ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -
The American Civil Liberties
Union of Florida today sent a let-
ter to St. Petersburg Mayor Rick
Baker and Police Chief Charles
"Chuck" Harmon calling for
changes to the City's controver-
sial ordinance regarding "free
speech zones" and event permit
enforcement. The Ordinance
allows the City to create prior
restraints of speech on an event-
by-event basis, with virtually no
predictable limits. It also crimi-
nalizes certain free speech
behavior around public events,
while simultaneously limiting
the rights of event organizers to
promote their own messages by
imposing forced "free speech
zones" for opponents. The City
also authorizes the police to
enforce breaches of permits. The
penalty: Arrest.
The City debuted its new
"signing statement" power by
limiting free speech rights of not
only the opponents of this
upcoming weekend's St. Pete
Pride events, but also of the


organizers themselves. As a con-
dition of granting the permit, the
City required the organizers to
dedicate a special area to allow
opposition to Pride's message of
tolerance and equality.
The ACLU called the City's
attention to a Supreme Court rul-
ing that allowed the organizers
of a St. Patrick's Day parade to
ban gay groups from marching
in the parade based on the First
Amendment rights of the parade
organizers to control the mes-
sage of the event. Likewise, said
the ACLU, events such as this
weekend's PRIDE parade and
street festival are, in and of
themselves, an act of free
speech.
"Forcing event organizers to
allow contrary messages within
the event area violates the First
Amendment," said Becky Steele,
Director of the ACLU of
Florida's West Central Office.
Additionally, the St. Pete
Pride permit requirement forbids
people from carrying signs, ban-
ners or using bullhorns along

slow while boating ,on the Suwannee,"
Hamlin said.
"However, we are looking to do more.
We plan to put new signs on the river at boat
docks and businesses so the boating public
can see the signs while they're on the water,"
Hamlin said. "We're interested in talking
with homeowners on the Suwannee River
who would be willing to place a sturgeon
warning sign on their docks.
"We are also looking for suggestions
from the public as to how we can make this
campaign even more effective. If anyone has
an idea how we can get the word out to those
folks recreating on the Suwannee River,
we'd like to hear it," Hamlin said.
The public can send in ideas via e-mail
to Karen.Parker@MyFWC.com or to Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission,
3377 E. U.S. Hwy. 90, Lake City, FL 32055.
Folks with ideas also can call the FWC
regional office at (386) 758-0525.

cant members of the business
and environmental communities,
in a discussion to explore oppor-
tunities for advancing the global
climate change agenda and.for


adopting specific climate action
plans.
"The science is clear about
climate change. The question is,
'Can we put in place the right
policies to address it?'"
Roosevelt said. "I believe we can
develop effective policies that
will create more economic
opportunities than economic
challenges."
Governor Crist invites inter-
ested individuals, organizations
and media to register for the con-
