Pinellas is Fourth in State AAA: Gas Prices Likely


in Boating Accidents


,0by KIeb radshav
A sailboat docked near USF's Bayboro Campus. Pinellas County ranked fourth in the state in boating
accidents in 2006. State officials say carelessness and inattention on the part of the boat operator are a

Being out on the water in Florida, especially
during summertime, seems like it should be a
birthright. On any given sunny day, Pinellas
County's Waterways are teeming with fisherman
and recreational boaters.
But waverunners, kayaks, and boats warrant a
great deal of caution, if a new report released by
the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission is any indication.
Florida, an FWC press release says, was sec-
ond to California in boating accidents last year,
with 671 accidents to California's 757. Florida led
the nation in boating fatalities in 2006 with 69.
Texas and California, which had 47 and 44 boating
fatalities in 2006, respectively, had the next highest
numbers.
With 41 reportable accidents in 2006, Pinellas
County had the fourth highest number of boating
accidents that year, ranking only behind Monroe
(75), Palm Beach (65), and Miami-Dade (42)
Counties. The Pinellas accidents, according to the
report, caused $287,247 in property damage.
Most of these accidents, the report says, were
collisions with other vessels; 31 of the accidents in
Pinellas involved personal watercraft like waverun-'
ners. Alcohol was listed as the primary cause in
just one boating accident in Pinellas. Two boating
accidents were fatal in Pinellas in 2006.
FWC Assistant Boating Safety Coordinator


Pinellas County Public
Works director of transportation
announces that all lanes of Bryan
Dairy Road just west of Belcher
Road and east of Starkey Road
will reopen Wednesday, July 11,
after the evening commute. All
planned road work will be com-
plete, eight days ahead of sched-
ule.
"We again thank the local
community, residents and busi-
nesses for their patience over the


Edward Cates said that Pinellas saw so many
waverunner accidents because of how the recre-
ational watercraft are made. Most waverunners,
Cates said, do not have "off-throttle steering,"
which allows a rider to turn the waverunner at
lower speeds or while it is.not in motion.
Terry Ryan, who owns Fly-N-High, a parasail
and waverunner rental service in Madeira Beach's
John's Pass Village, said that he believes educating
consumers, is the key to preventing waverunner
accidents.
Ryan gives his customers a brief safety orien-
tation before they go out, which consists of an
overview of the vessel arid a description of the
waterway, including manatee areas and no-wake
zones. People who don't pay attention don't get to
ride, he said.
Cates said that regardless of vessel type,
boaters need to constantly pay attention to what is
going on around them.
"Enjoy yourself, but be aware of your sur-
roundings," he advised.
Cates said that two people have died in
Pinellas boating accidents so far this year; both
were in March. He said that he strongly advises
that boaters wear PFDs, or personal flotation
devices (life jackets) at all times when out on the
water.
"You can still fish or get a tan" while wearing
one, he said, and will be a lot safer.


last two weeks as we improve
another county roadway," said
Pinellas Board of County
Commissioners Chairman
Ronnie E. Duncan. "As the sec-
ond consecutive early road open-
ing, the completion of Bryan
Dairy Road is another example
of outstanding service and col-
laboration by our Public Works
staff, Pinellas County's contrac-
tor and CSXT."
The county attributes the


early opening of the roadway to
a combination of factors. These
include favorable weather condi-
tions, cooperation among parties
involved in the project, use of
new road construction technolo-
gy, and a litany of other things.
Initiated on June 29, the
Bryan Dairy Road railroad
reconstruction and closure was a
planned improvement project of
Pinellas County Public Works
and CSX Transportation.


to Rise this Week


photo,bu Kate\Bradshaw
The good times are over, a number of experts said earlier this week. After plummeting to a two-month low,
gas prices are on their way back up due to fuel shortages and refinery outages.


about 94% this time of year.
The average retail price for
regular gasoline in Florida
climbed to $2.90 per gallon over
the week of July 2 from $2.89.2
per gallon, which was the lowest
average in nearly two months.
The Kansas refinery is not
the only Midwest facility of its
kind to shut down this month,
Bly said. Forbes.com reports that
a major piece of equipment at an
Indiana BP refinery has also shut
down and is likely to contribute
to higher fuel prices.
The Oil Price Information
Service reports that limited
refinery production is causing
gasoline outages in the Midwest,
'which OPIS reports might cause
high gas prices to spread to
neighboring regions.


But Bly said that even
though rising gasoline prices
might make summer travel more
expenses, he doubts that con-
sumers will alter their plans.
"People are pretty creative
in the ways they try to compen-
sate for gas prices," Bly said,
noting that travelers can offset
high fuel prices by staying in
rooms with kitchenettes instead
of going out to restaurants every
night during a summer trip.
Bly said that there are also
many practices that can help
consumers conserve fuel. These
include keeping one's car well-
maintained, maintaining proper
Sair pressure in tires, combining
all errands into one trip, and
reducing one's dependence on
air conditioning while driving.

Although prices at the pump
were on the decline earlier this
month from their record-high
average of $3.22 a gallon in late
May, Randy Bly, a spokesman
for AAA Auto Club South said
this week that consumers will
see gas prices start to creep back
up. He attributes this upturn to a
number of factors.
"A ten-month high in crude
oil prices, a refinery outage in
Kansas and continued low refin-
ery output-90 percent accord-
ing to the recent US Department
of Energy report-will place
upward pressure on retail gaso-
line prices this week," Bly said
in a July 8 statement. Bly later
said that output needs to be at


Got Grouper? New Website Will Tell

You If It's Real


TALLAHASSEE Florida
Agriculture and Consumer
Services Commissioner Charles
H. Bronson is unveiling a new
website that will help consumers
determine whether the grouper
they buy is the real deal...or a
substitution.
Grouper is one of Florida's
prized seafood species and
Florida provides more than 90%
of the nation's supply of the
fish. Overall, Florida's fisher-
men harvest over 90 million
pounds of seafood annually, with
a dockside value of about $165
million dollars.
Bronson's Bureau of
Seafood and Aquaculture
Marketing has developed a web
site that provides tips on pur-


chasing grouper. The web site
comes in the wake of a series of
cases where merchants mistak-
enly or purposely sold cheaper
substitutes to customers without
their knowledge. Because of its
limited supply and relatively
high price, Florida grouper has
been targeted by unscrupulous
merchants who want to profit
from its popularity. There have
been instances where restau-
rants, wholesalers and retailers
have substituted a lesser-value
fish and mislabeled it as
grouper.
"Florida law prohibits an
establishment from misrepre-
senting the identity of a seafood
product," Bronson said. "Selling
a cheaper species takes advan-


tage of consumers and will not
be tolerated in this state."
Bronson's department and
other state agencies including -
the Florida Attorney General's
Office and the Department of
Business and Professional
Regulation, which regulates
restaurants have been investigat-
ing these illegal practices and
placing fines on establishments
that misrepresent seafood
species. Some restaurants indi-
cate the fish was mislabeled
when they received it from
wholesalers.
To protect themselves
against product mislabeling,
consumers can visit www.FL-
Seafood.com.

Court wisely permits more

issue ads in weeks before vote
by Edwin J. Feulner, Ph.D.

Happy Independence Day. On this date 231 years ago, our
founding fathers made a claim that must have struck most foreign-
ers as absurd: "That these United Colonies are, and of right ought to
be, free and independent States." In the years ahead, Americans
would fight and die to make that boast a reality.
Even with the Revolution won, though,. governing the new
United States wasn't easy. After 11 difficult years, some of those
who declared independence in 1776 were back in Philadelphia to
draft a new governing framework. Their efforts produced the most
important document in American history: the Constitution.
It's been folded, spindled and mutilated over the years. Still, it
survives largely intact, something that's certainly worth celebrating
with fireworks. Good timing, in fact: The original meaning of the
First Amendment was partially restored by a key Supreme Court
decision last week in FEC vs. Wisconsin Right to Life.
By a 5-4 margin, the justices tossed out one of the unconstitu-
tional applications of the McCain-Feingold campaign finance act.
Congress passed the act in 2002 to limit the amount of money
groups could spend on political campaigns and the ways they could
spend it. McCain-Feingold was billed as a "reform" act, but what it
really did was limit the First Amendment rights -- the free political
speech -- of many individuals and groups.
In FEC vs. Wisconsin Right to Life, three justices pointed out
a certain irony: The (supposedly) immensely powerful unions and
corporations that were the target of McCain-Feingold couldn't block
it in Congress. And once passed, it ended up suppressing the politi-
cal speech of at least one small, grass-roots organization of
Wisconsin pro-lifers.
Congress shouldn't have passed McCain-Feingold and, of
course, President Bush shouldn't have signed it into law. As he
noted, the act presents[] serious constitutional concerns." For
example, he said, "individual freedom to participate in elections
should be expanded, not diminished; and when individual freedoms
are restricted, questions arise under the First Amendment."
But Bush left it up to the courts to address those "questions."
The results have been mixed. In 2003, the Supreme Court let most
of McCain-Feingold's restrictions stand, including its ban on many
types of political advertising 60 days before a general election.
In FEC vs. Wisconsin Right to Life, however, the court allowed
grssroots advocacy groups to ... well, advocate. "When it comes
to defining what speech qualifies as the functional equivalent of
express advocacy subject tb [McCain-Feingold's] ban, Chief
Justice John Roberts wrote, "we give the benefit of the doubt to
speech, not censorship."
But that's not as sweeping as it sounds. The court also left parts
of McCain-Feingold intact, so we can expect other legal challenges.
In 1776, a group of patriots brave enough to defy the British
Empire vowed to build a new and better country, one based on lib-
erty. Because they stayed true to their principles, we're Americans
today.
On this Independence Day, politicians should ask themselves if
they're upholding their end of the bargain. Before they enact future
bills, they ought to consider carefully whether each measure is con-
stitutional. If not, it is their sworn duty under the Constitution to see
that the measure does not become law.
Our policymakers shouldn't wait for courts to "do the right
thing." Indeed, lawmakers should act to repeal unconstitutional
laws. That may sound audacious and unlikely. But it's nothing com-
pared with what our founders went through. Defending our consti-
tutional rights is a responsibility that falls on all of us as freeborn
citizens of the greatest republic in history.
Ed Feulner is president of the Heritage Foundation.

World's largest telescope to make first

observations Friday


GAINESVILLE- The world's largest tele-
scope will take its first peek into the heavens this
week, ushering the University of Florida into the
top ranks of the "big observers," as one astronomy
professor put it.
The Gran Telescopio Canarias, or GTC, under
construction in Spain's Canary Islands for the past
seven years, will hold its "first light" opening cer-
emony Friday. UF, which contributed $5 million to
the project and owns a 5 percent share, is the only
U.S. institution with a stake in the massive tele-
scope.
"This is one of the largest international proj-
ects that the university is involved in, and first light
is certainly a big step for a small department," said
Stan Dermott, astronomy department chairman and
one of four UF astronomy faculty members who
will attend Friday's ceremony.
The roughly $175 million GTC is not yet com-
plete. Only 12 of the 36 mirrors that together will
compose its 34.1-foot primary mirror have been
installed, Dermott said. The rest are expected to be
mounted this year, with the telescope's grand open-
ing to be presided over by King Juan Carlos I of
Spain set for next summer. Only after that date
will scientific-quality observations begin.
All that said, enough of the mirror is assem-
bled to allow telescope operators to make initial
test runs, he said. So at 10 p.m. Greenwich Mean
Time Friday (6 p.m. EDT), Prince Felipe, heir to
the Spanish throne, will train the telescope on
Polaris, the North Star, for a ceremonial observa-
tion to be attended by about 300 people.

director of sponsored research. 'This will be the
first demonstration that the telescope can produce
a focused image of a star," Dermott said.
The Spanish government is the main owner of
the GTC, with UF and two institutes in Mexico as
partners. As a result of its participation, UF
astronomers will be allotted 20 nights of telescope
time annually for observations. A UF-designed and
built infrared imager and spectrometer, meanwhile,
will be one of the first instruments mounted on the
telescope when it opens for scientific observation
next year.
"We are not just passive partners in this proj-
ect," Dermott said. "We are the world's leader in
developing astronomical instruments, and our
instrument, CanariCam, will be one of the first
instruments used on the GTC."
Dermott said UF's participation in the GTC
effectively makes it one of a handful of institutions
with guaranteed access to the world's most power-
ful telescopes. That will open the door to a wide
range of research not only at the GTC but else-
where as well.
"Already we are forming scientific teams that
will involve other telescopes to take part in surveys
of the distant universe," he said. "For example,
Rafael Guzman is leading a team that will investi-
gate the origin of galaxies. In a sense, we have
joined the club of big observers now."
Funded in part by the Spanish government
with a $6.5 million grant, Guzman's team of 40
astronomers from the U.S., Spain, France and
England is conducting a survey called GOYA, or
Galaxy Origins and Young Assembly. Other UF
astronomers are also participating or heading
GTC-related projects.


WASHINGTON DC NOAA and the U.S.. Fish and Wildlife Service have joined forces to expand
their ability to analyze dried shark fins and identify the species from which they were removed. This new
partnership will support efforts to curtail shark finning, the practice of removing a shark's fins at sea and
throwing the carcass overboard. Shark finning is prohibited in federal waters of the Atlantic and Pacific
oceans, the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean Sea. (Click NOAA image for larger view of NOAA Office
of Law Enforcement agent counting agger shark fins. Please credit "NOAA.")
"NOAA is pleased to partner with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in this effort to promote the
protection and conservation of marine resources," said John H. Dunnigan, NOAA's assistant administra-
tor for the National Ocean Service. "This new collaboration will greatly improve our ability to aid law
enforcement in determining whether protected shark species are being harvested for fins."
Shark fins are dried for use in shark fin soup, considered an.Asian delicacy, making fins the most
valuable part of a shark. The soup can sell for $100 dollars a bowl or more in some restaurants. Shark
finning is a growing concern as worldwide fishing pressure increases and scientists learn more about the
biology of these long-lived, slow-to-reproduce species.
Though fishermen cannot legally discard finned carcasses at sea, they are allowed to possess cut fins
as long as the fins make up no more than five percent of the weight of the carcasses on board. The species
of sharks with the most valuable fins are not always the same as the shark species with the most valuable
meat.
The discrepancy between the value of fins and carcasses can lead to deceitful fishing practices. In
some instances, landed fins and carcasses were found to be from different species, indicating that some
fins were removed illegally and the corresponding carcasses were discarded at sea.
NOAA researchers developed the currently-used method for shark species identification, which uses
DNA to distinguish the most common and commercially important 35 of the 73 species in U.S. waters.
Without DNA testing, it can be difficult to identify a shark's species based on visual inspection of its fin,
especially after it has been dried for use in soup. (Click NOAA image for larger view of White Shark off
the California coast. Click here for high resolution version, which is a large file. Please credit "NOAA.")
"Working together, NOAA and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service will be able to increase the effi-
ciency and speed with which shark fin samples can be analyzed to determine the source species," said
Katherine Moore, a marine biologist with the NOAA National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science.
The shark fin identification research will be performed by the NOAA Center for Coastal
Environmental Health and Biomolecular Research in Charleston, S.C., which is one of the NOAA
National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science, and by the USFWS National Fish and Wildlife Forensics
Laboratory in Ashland, Ore.
NOAA, an agency of the U.S. Commerce Department, is celebrating 200 years of science and serv-
ice to the nation. From the establishment of the Survey of the Coast in 1807 by Thomas Jefferson to the
formation of the Weather Bureau and the Commission of Fish and Fisheries in the 1870s, much of
America's scientific heritage is rooted in NOAA.
NOAA is dedicated to enhancing economic security and national safety through the prediction and
research of weather and climate-related events and information service delivery for transportation, and by
providing environmental stewardship of our nation's coastal and marine resources. Through the emerg-
ing Global Earth Observation System of Systems (GEOSS), NOAA is working with its federal partners,
more than 60 countries and the European Commission to develop a global monitoring network that is as
integrated as the planet it observes, predicts and protects.


FSU President Wetherell



Praises Crist's Decision on



Tuition

TALLASSEE Florida State University President T.K. Wetherell praised Gov. Charlie Crist's team-
building efforts in bringing together Florida's public university presidents to work together to fund high-
er education. He also applauded the governor's decision to allow the differential tuition bill to become
law.
"We appreciate Governor Crist's clear support of higher education in Florida. We applaud his deci-
sion to allow the differential tuition bill to become law and thereby help our state's universities continue
to work toward ever-increasing quality. Governor Crist asked us to work together as a team in facing the
challenges of funding public higher education, and we look forward to working with him and the
Legislature," Wetherell said, after Governor Crist met with him and the presidents of the other 10 state
universities on Wednesday.
The differential tuition bill will allow Florida State University, the University of Florida and the
University of South Florida to increase tuition as much as 15 percent a year more than the levels set for
the state's other eight public universities.
Under the bill, tuition at FSU and UF would be capped at 40 percent higher than the rest of the uni-
versities and at 30 percent more for USE
The three schools will not impose the new tuition rates until Fall 2008.


Proposed

Tiahrt

Amendment

Renewal

Draws Fire
By Kate Bradshaw
staff writer
Earlier this week, radio com-
mercials Ray Schoenke of the
American Hunters and Shooters
Association urged citizens to call
Congressman Bill Young and tell
him to vote no on the reautho-
rization of the Tiarht
Amendment. The amendment,
which bars law enforcement offi-
cials from accessing information
that the Bureau of Alcohol,
Tobacco, Firearms, and
Explosives generates concerning
the trade of illegal firearms,
passed in 2003 as part of an
appropriations bill. It is named
after US Representative Todd
Tiahrt (R-KS), who sponsored it.
The amendment, Schoenke
said, "has created great deal of
problems for law enforcement."
The Mayors Against Illegal Guns
Coalition, which includes New
York City Mayor Michael
Bloomberg, Chicago Mayor
Richard Daley and mayors from
more than 220 other US cities,.
has opposed the legislation since
its inception.
According to Reuters News
Service, Bloomberg called the
Tiarht Amendment "anti-cop"
and "soft on crime" as he spoke
out against it on Capitol Hill July
10.
But the National Rifle
Association wants Congress to
keep the amendment in place,
claiming that allowing law
enforcement agencies to access
gun records would violate gun
owners' rights to privacy. On its
Web site, the association also
claims that law enforcement has
sufficient access under the
newest version of the amend-
ment, which the NRA says
makes such information available
to law enforcement officials at
state, county, and local levels for
a "bona fide criminal investiga-
tion or prosecution."
But Ray Schoenke of the
AHSA said that what is currently
in place does not help law
enforcement at all.
In his 'dio commercial, he
asked listeners to call
Congressman Bill Young (R-FL)
and tell him to vote no on the
reauthorization of the amend-
ment.

GAINESVILLE, Fla. -
And you thought kudzu was bad.
A weed called cogongrass is
rapidly spreading across the
Southeast, and a University of
Florida researcher says it's
already overtaken kudzu as
Florida's most obnoxious weed.
"Kudzu's no longer the
poster child. Cogongrass is a big
deal," said forestry researcher
Shibu Jose. "It's becoming a
major, major problem."
Cogongrass (CO-gun-grass)
has yellowish-green foliage and
can reach 4 feet tall, said Jose, of
UF's Institute of Food and
Agricultural Sciences.
Introduced into Alabama
from Japan as a packing material
in 1912, cogongrass was tested
as a forage crop in the 1920s,
which allowed it to gain a toe-
hold. It began making its pres-
ence known in the 1970s and
1980s, Jose said, and is now
causing problems in Louisiana,
Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia
and Florida.
A 2003 survey showed 1.5
million acres of cogongrass
across the Southeast, compared
to 1 million acres of kudzu, Jose
said. Florida has about a half-
million acres of cogongrass.
Cogongrass is well-suited to
its role as an aggressive weed.
It's a perennial that can spread
quickly underground, its roots
easily besting other plants for

Endeavour Arrives at

Launch Pad 39A


Nasa Photo credit: USA/Larry Tanner
Bathed in the light of a Florida sunrise, Space Shuttle Endeavour
arrives at Kennedy Space Center's Launch Pad 39A.
Cape Canaveral The rollout of Space Shuttle Endeavour to
Launch Pad 39A began at 8:10 p.m. Tuesday evening. The crawler-
transporter carried the space shuttle assembly on the 3.4-mile journey
to the launch pad arriving at approximately 2:30 a.m. on Wednesday
morning and was hard down at 3:02 a.m.
During the STS-118 mission,'Endeavouir will carry into orbit the
S5 truss, SPACEHAB module and external stowage platform 3. The
payload was delivered Sunday to the launch pad's payload changeout
room.
NASA is quickly gearing up for the shuttle's next visit to the
International Space Station, targeted for an Aug. 7 launch. The mis-
sion will mark the first flight of Mission Specialist Barbara Morgan,
the teacher-turned-astronaut whose association with NASA began
more than 20 years ago.
STS-118 will be the first flight for Endeavour since 2002.


water, nutrients and space.
Cogongrass also, thrives
where fire is a regular occur-
rence. Jose believes recent wild-
fires may make the problem
worse, because fires kill smaller
trees and plants, leaving lots of
room for cogongrass to move in
and take over.
When cogongrass squeezes
out native plants, it can hurt ani-
mals that depend on those plants
for food or shelter.
Jose, who published a paper
on cogongrass in the June issue
of the journal Biological
Invasions, has been studying the
grass for about nine years.
Some Florida counties, such
as Alachua and Marion, are mak-
ing a concerted effort to bring
everyone from government offi-
cials to landowners to
researchers together to eradicate
cogongrass. But the entire state
must be on board, he said.
"It doesn't do any good if
everyone's not doing the treat-
ments. Private landowners, agen-
cies, et cetera-everyone has to
work together," he said. "If we
don't- do this, we will see
cogongrass everywhere."
Cogongrass can be con-
trolled, but it takes a specific reg-
imen of mowing and controlled
burns, coupled with repeated,
well-timed herbicide treatments,
he said.
UF researchers are looking
for a biological control solution


for cogongrass, but so far, that's
been elusive, said UF plant
pathology professor Raghavan
Charudattan.
Graduate research assistant
Alana Den Breeyen has been
working with Charudattan to
pinpoint fungi from cogongrass
that can suppress it-but not
eradicate it.
Den Breeyen said
cogongrass is terrible for African
subsistence farmers, who can
only hack away at the grass with
hoes, in hopes of keeping it at
bay.
"These farmers have to fight
this beast all the time,"
Charudattan said.
In Jose's recent study, he
and graduate student Alexandra
Collins wanted to test ecologist
Charles Elton's hypothesis that
the more species-rich a forest is,
the less vulnerable it is to inva-
sive species.
They conducted studies at
two Santa Rosa County sites,
one that recently been cleared of
17-year-old loblolly pines and
the other, a longleaf pine forest.
"Our prediction was that
with an aggressive invader like
cogongrass, perhaps it didn't
matter the number of species that
were there. And that's what we
found," he said.
"The moral of this story was
that it doesn't have a chance to
resist. And that is bad news."

worse than kudzu, UF researcher says

the exchange of students in the fields of edu-
cation, culture and science." More than
275,000 people from the United States and
abroad have participated in the resulting
cross-cultural exchanges.
























TALLAHASSEE Florida State University
President T.K. Wetherell has announced that FSU
will freeze enrollment and take aggressive steps to
stabilize its budget in the face of declining state
revenues, chronic under-funding of enrollment
growth, the unknown consequences of tax reform,
and a,vetoed tuition increase.
The bottom line: Getting admitted to FSU just
got a lot tougher,
"We've got a revenue crisis looming in this
state that's going to affect students today and
tomorrow," Wetherell said. "It doesn't take a crys-
tal ball to see that unknown outcomes of the prop-
erty tax reform that just passed yesterday are like-
ly to have serious effects on higher education.
"Add to that chronic problems of declining
state revenues and under-funded enrollment not
to mention the veto of the 5 percent tuition increase
- and the future's easy to predict. We're headed
toward a budget crisis that inevitably will cut
access to public higher education in this state."'
Referring to recent news reports that K-12
public school leaders have concerns about the
impact of tax cuts on their teaching mission,
Wetherell issued a reminder that Florida State also
is a public school.
"We, too, are concerned about cuts. We, too,
are concerned about class size. We are talking
about a serious threat to quality if-we continue to
under-fund the universities."
In 2006-07, FSU enrolled 6,328 freshmen of
which approximately 1,000 were unfunded.
"Something's got to give," Wetherell said.
Therefore, Florida State will freeze enrollment
at current levels and apply stringent admission cri-
teria for spring 2008 for freshmen and transfer stu-
dents.
Current students will find reduced hours for
student computing labs and reduced library hours,
as well as increased fees for some services such as
smart cards and transcripts.
FSU will be cutting memberships and review-
ing all travel. Faculty will increase their teaching


load. Some maintenance and repairs will be
deferred.
While making these budget cuts, FSU will
take pains to adhere to certain principles, Wetherell
said.
"We will protect the integrity of the teaching,
research and service mission of the university and
continue to enhance our standing as one of the top
research and graduate education institutions in the
nation.
"We will ensure the safety and security of stu-
dents, employees and the campus, and we will
safeguard the financial integrity of the university."
FSU will not surrender quality, he said, but
will have constraints.
"We did receive some funding for our
Pathways of Excellence program, but not enough
to continue on the timeline we had set in place for
achieving the quality we seek as a top public, grad-
uate, research university," he said. "We have
extended it from five to seven years, and we have
slowed the cluster hiring of faculty from six clus-
ters to two."
Overall, this under-funding means sacrificing
access, Wetherell said.
"We just do not have the money to admit more
freshmen and transfer students in 2007-08 than we
did this year, so enrollment will be flat. That's
going to close our doors to a lot of promising stu-
dents. Well-qualified students who we would ordi-
narily welcome to FSU will receive rejection let-
ters. They worked hard; they studied hard; they
served their communities; they did everything
right, but there still won't be room for them. And
we will all be the worse for it.
"The students who want to come here deserve
to be able to get just as good an education in
Florida as they could get in other states, which
charge much more. It's our responsibility to give it
to them. But without the necessary funding, our
universities will fall behind, and we will have
failed them. We owe it to the citizens of Florida not
to let that happen."

Swim diapers may not keep pool


water clean, UF experts say


FSU Freezes



Enrollment, Tightens



Budgets


By Tom Nordlie
GAINESVILLE -
Swimming is good, clean sum-
mer fun for small children-but
University of Florida experts
caution that swim diapers won't
necessarily keep the water clean,
and that could spell trouble if
sick kids go in the pool.
A common illness called
Norovirus infection can cause
vomiting, abdominal cramps and
diarrhea. And for children suffer-
ing from such an infection that
last symptom can render swim
diapers ineffective, said Fred
Southwick, a professor and chief
of the infectious disease division
at UF's College of Medicine.
Noroviruses are shed in
bodily fluids, and if released into
a pool could be transmitted to
other children if they ingest
water or even touch their mouths
with wet hands, he said. Swim
diapers are designed to hold
solid waste but may not stop
diarrhea from leaking out.
"I would not count on the
supposedly watertight diapers
because I don't think they're
really that effective," Southwick
said.
U.S. Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention officials
say no swim diapers are
leakproof and that no manufac-
turer claims its products prevent
diarrhea leakage. CDC devoted a
page to the topic:
http://www.cdc.gov/healthyswi
mming/swim_diapers.htm.
Children with diarrhea
shouldn't be allowed in pools,
regardless of their swimwear,
Southwick said.
Noroviruses, previously
known as Norwalk-like viruses,


cause gastroenteritis, inflamma-
tion of the stomach and large
intestine. Symptoms often begin
suddenly and can last 24 to 60
hours.
CDC estimates that
Norovirus infections cause 23
million gastroenteritis cases in
the United States each year. A
1999 French study showed that
14 percent of children under 3
hospitalized for gastroenteritis
had Norovirus infections.
Though the illness can strike
people of any age, young chil-
dren are especially vulnerable to
dehydration caused by diarrhea
and vomiting, Southwick said.
Sports drinks with sodium and
potassium may help replace flu-
ids lost in mild cases. But if a
child can't keep the beverage
down, intravenous fluid replace-
ment may be necessary.
Noroviruses are a particular
concern in pools because they
often are resistant to chlorine
concentrations found in swim-
ming pools, he said.
Many parents fill wading
pools with a garden hose, using
tap water that contains less chlo-
rine than is used to maintain
larger pools, said food safety
expert Keith Schneider, an asso-
ciate professor with UF's
Institute of Food and
Agricultural Sciences.
"I do not think tap water has
enough residual chlorine levels
to maintain a high enough chlo-
rine level to be efficacious
against most pathogens in that
type of environment," Schneider
said.
Adding chlorine to a wading
pool isn't a good idea, either,
because in such a small body of


FBI: Over 1 Million


Potential Victims of


Botnet Remote


Control Cyber Crime

Today the Department of Justice and FBI announced the results
of an ongoing cyber crime initiative to disrupt and dismantle "both-
erders" and elevate the public's cyber security awareness of botnets.
OPERATION BOT ROAST is a national initiative and ongoing inves-
tigations have identified over 1 million victim computer IP address-
es. The FBI is working with our industry partners, including the
CERT Coordination Center at Carnegie Mellon University, to notify
the victim owners of the computers. Through this process the FBI
may uncover additional incidents in which botnets have been used to
facilitate other criminal activity.
A botnet is a collection of compromised computers under the
remote command and control of a criminal "botherder." Most owners
of the compromised computers are unknowing and unwitting victims.
They have unintenti nally allowed unauthorized access and use of
their computers as a vehicle to facilitate other crimes, such as identi-
ty theft, denial of service attacks, phishing, click fraud, and the mass
distribution of spam and spyware. Because of their widely distributed
capabilities, botnets are a growing threat to national security, the
national information infrastructure, and the economy.
"The majority of victims are not even aware that their computer
has been compromised or their personal information exploited," said
FBI Assistant Director for the Cyber Division James Finch. "An
attacker gains control by infecting the computer with a virus or other
malicious code and the computer continues to operate normally.
Citizens can protect themselves from botnets and the associated
schemes by practicing strong computer security habits to reduce the
risk that your computer will be compromised."
The FBI also wants to thank our industry partners, such as the
Microsoft Corporation and the Botnet Task Force, in referring crimi-
nal botnet activity to law enforcement.
Cyber security tips include updating antivirus software,
installing a firewall, using strong passwords, practicing good email
and web security practices. Although this will not necessarily identi-
fy or remove a botnet currently on the system, this can help to pre-
vent future botnet attacks. More information on botnets and tips for
cyber crime prevention can be found online at www.fbi.gov.
The FBI will not contact you online and request your personal
information so be wary of fraud schemes that request this type of
information, especially via unsolicited emails. To report fraudulent
activity or financial scams, contact the nearest FBI office or police
department, and file a complaint online with the Internet Crime

Moffitt receives grant to

study effects of a green

tea drug on prostate

cancer
Tampa A team of physicians and scientists, led by Nagi
Kumar, Ph.D., director of Nutrition Research at H. Lee Moffitt
Cancer Center & Research Institute and associate professor in the
College of Medicine at the University of South Florida, have received
a $3.6 million grant over five years from the National Cancer Institute
(NCI) to study the effect of Polyphenon E, a drug developed from
green tea, in preventing progression of early signs of prostate cancer.
"Our broad and long-term goal is to develop safe, non-toxic
nutrients that can be consumed safely over long periods to prevent
progression of prostate cancer in men with early stage disease or at
high risk for this disease," said Kumar. "We are grateful to the NCI
for their confidence in our team and this opportunity towards accom-
plishing this goal and reducing the burden of this disease."
Studies of Asian populations demonstrate that green tea con-
sumption may be one of the reasons why they have the lowest risk of
prostate cancer compared to the Western world. Recently, animal and
laboratory studies have identified specific substances in green tea
called epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) as a potent ingredient that
can prevent or stop the formation and growth of several human can-
cers including prostate cancer.
Researchers at Moffitt observed that these substances in green
tea function similarly to drugs such as Velcade and Bortezomib that
are currently used to prevent prostate cancer, but without the toxici-
ties observed with the use of these drugs. Polyphenon E was recent-
ly evaluated for safety in human trials funded by the NCI.
In a small pilot study in Italy, doctors demonstrated the safety
and effectiveness of a similar substance manufactured with green tea
in preventing progression of prostate cancer in men who were diag-
nosed with High-grade Prostatic Intraepithelial Neoplasia (HGPIN)
lesions in the prostate, an early sign of prostate cancer.
Based on the promising results of these studies, Moffitt hopes to
recruit and treat 240 (120 per group) men and evaluate safety and
effectiveness of the drug in preventing progression of HGPIN to
prostate cancer. The goal is to also evaluate if Polyphenon E reduces
urinary tract symptoms that men experience with this condition.
The Moffitt team includes Drs. Julio Powsang, Wade Sexton,
Loveleen Kang, Said Sebti, Aslamuzzaman Kazi, Kathleen Egan,
Michael Schell, Gwendolyn Quinn and Karen Besterman-Dahan.
Other participating institutions include the University of Chicago,
Jefferson Medical Center in Philadelphia and the James A Haley
Veterans' Hospital.

Target Corporation to


Pay Fine for Violating


Clean Air Act

NEW YORK-The United States Environmental Protection
Agency (EPA) announced today that Target Corporation will pay a
civil penalty of $120,000 for distributing and selling Horrible Spooky
String; a children's product harmful to the environment in violation
of the Clean Air Act. EPA had previously ordered five national retail
chains to pull from their shelves cans of illegally imported confetti
string products that contain banned hydrochlorofluorocarbons
(HCFCs). These substances deplete the earth's protective stratos-
pheric ozone layer and increase the risk of skin cancer. Millions of
cans of these novelty items, many imported from other countries and
known by various names such as Horrible Spooky String, Zany
String, Crazy String, and Party Streamer, etc., have been sold illegal-
ly in the United States. Not all string confetti products are harmful.
"Importers of consumer products containing illegal substances
beware," said Alan J. Steinberg, EPA Regional Administrator. "EPA
banned HCFC propellants in most spray cans more than a decade ago
and importers must be careful to guard against bringing in products
that could harm human health or the environment. We are pleased that
Target cooperated with EPA's enforcement actions to ensure that
these products will not be available to consumers and the ozone-
depleting substances they contained will never make it into our envi-
ronment."
Target followed EPA's directives by taking the banned products off
their shelves and shipping them to a commercial incinerator for
destruction. A total of 785,516 cans, representing all of Target's
inventory, were incinerated pursuant to EPA's prior compliance order.
The company has also agreed to audit its operations and adopt new
policies to ensure that these problems do not arise again. EPA's
Region 2 office in New York led Agency efforts in this national set-
tlement with Target.
HCFCs and other ozone-depleting substances, when emitted,
drift up and attack the earth's stratospheric ozone layer, which pro-
tects human and animal life from the sun's harmful radiation a sit-
uation which could lead to increased incidences of skin cancer,
cataracts, and crop damage. The United States, in cooperation with
over 185 other countries, is phasing out the production of ozone-
depleting substances in an effort to safeguard the ozone layer.
(Stratospheric ozone is not related to the issue of ground-level ozone
or smog.)



r-hunting classes
i ed. Class topics include preparing for the
hunt, hunting techniques and safety, har-
vesting and processing, caring for your
alligator hide and alligator rules and regu-
lations.
All hunt permits have been sold for
this year; however, an alligator trapping
agent permit is available at the cost of
.- $52. This enables the agent to assist a
licensed trapper in taking alligators, but
only in the presence of that trapper.
Permitted alligator hunters can expect
to receive their licenses and hide-valida-
tion tags by July 13.


water it would be difficult to
maintain the correct level of the
chemical.
"I think one of the best pre-
ventative measures is to not let
the pathogens in the pool in the
first place," Schneider said. "One
sick kid can make a lot of sick
kids."
At least one swim diaper
manufacturer agrees. Patti
Gilmer, president and founder of
Future Products Corporation in
Alto, Ga., which markets the
Swim-sters brand, said swim
diapers can't take the place of
careful supervision.
Young children should be
given frequent bathroom breaks,
and any child who appears to
have defecated while in the pool
should be removed immediately,
Gilmer said. Recently toilet-
trained tots may be at risk for
accidents because the fun of
playing distracts them.
Gilmer said her company
includes information about safe-
ty precautions and proper use of
swim diapers on its packaging
and company Web site.
"You don't want a parent to
think 'I can put my child in the
water and they're safe because
every child's got a swim diaper
on,'" she said. "You'd have to
put kids in a bubble in order to
completely protect the water."
Still, it's better to use a
swim diaper than nothing at all,
Gilmer said. University of
Georgia researchers tested the
company's swim diapers and
found they significantly reduced
the amount of fecal bacteria
entering pool water, even with
diarrhea.

City of Clearwater sK Professor


seeking Local Grouns of Tears"film
w w w S- U Im


to Adopt City Parks


CLEARWATER-Area busi-
nesses, schools, non-profits and
service organizations interested
in performing service projects
within the community can adopt
one of the city's parks.
Nineteen of the city's 28
adoptable parks have already
been adopted. Parks that are still
available include Bay Park, Cliff
Stephens, Edgewater Drive,
Mandalay and D.D.
Davis. Volunteer groups
sign an agreement stating they
will conduct at least two service
projects in their park per year.
Volunteer groups receive a sign
with their name on it that shows
the community they are caring
for the park.
The city also offers one-time
community beautification proj-
ects for groups that can only
make short-term commitments.
Most recently, Woodgate
Park on Countryside Boulevard


was adopted by the Golda
Meir/Kent Jewish Center's sum-
mer camp.
"Camp Or Hashemesh is
dedicated to making the world a
better place and where better to
start than your own backyard,"
said Jeff Kreiger, Camp Director.
As part of their efforts,
campers completed seven differ-
ent service projects this summer.
They improved the park by
painting bollards, picnic tables
and benches; mulching the tennis
courts and playground areas; and
removing trash anfd debris from
the park grounds. .
"We try to make serving
your community as easy as pos-
sible," said Karen Maldonado,
Parks and Recreation Volunteer
Coordinator. "We, provide
approved projects, staff supervi-
sion, drinks and all the tools and
supplies needed."


LEXINGTON Daniel
Blake Smith, a professor in the
University of Kentucky College
of Arts andiSciences Department
of History, is also the author of a
documentary making its East
Coast premiere last week. The
award-winning documentary,
"Trail of Tears Cherokee Legacy"
was shown at the National
Museum of the American Indian
on the National Mall.
Narrated by James Earl
Jones, the film chronicles the eth-
nic cleansing and the hardships
endured by the Indians of
Southeast America in the 1830s.
The focus of the documen-
tary is the Cherokee Trail of
Tears forced march to reservation
land. Ordered by President
Andrew Jackson, the Indian
Removal Act of 1830 ultimately
sent the Cherokee nation on a
forced march to Oklahoma in
1838.
Thousands of Cherokees
died on the Trail of Tears, nearly
a quarter of the nation. They died
from hunger and disease, finally
arriving in their new territory
with very few children or elders.


TAMPA Dr. Sanberg's
commentary and the study it
highlights will also be published
in the magazine edition of
PNAS, a prestigious publication
with a global audience. PNAS
has been a resource for multidis-
ciplinary research since 1914. Its
online edition, where Dr.
Sanberg's commentary appears
this week, receives nearly 6 mil-
lion e-visitor "hits" per month.
Content includes research
reports, commentaries, reviews,
perspectives, colloquium papers,
and actions of the Academy.
Coverage in PNAS spans the
biological, physical, and social
sciences.
Dr. Sanberg also comment-
ed on the PNAS study of neural
stem cells in Parkinson's pri-
mates for an article appearing
June 11 in Nature.com.ansplant-
ed cells did their job of easing
disease symptoms.
Paul R. Sanberg, DSc, PhD,
Distinguished Professor of
Neurosurgery and Director of
the Center for Aging and Brain
Repair at USF Health, wrote the
commentary "Neural Stem Cells
for Parkinson's Disease: To
Protect and Repair" published
July 9 in the "Early Edition"
online version of journal
Proceedings of the National
Academy of Sciences of the
United States of America
(PNAS). The expert commentary
is a companion piece to the study


conducted by Gene Redmond
and colleagues at Yale and
Harvard Universities and the
Burnham Institute.
That NIH-funded study
showed that only a small number
of stem cells turned into

dopamine-producing cells not
enough to improve the primates'
function by replacing missing
neurons. Instead, some stem
cells turned into astrocytes, a
supportive brain cell that pro-
duces neuron-nourishing chemi-
cals. The researchers also identi-
fied in the brains of the primate
recipients a significant amount
of dopamine-producing neurons
that were not derived from stem
cells. The results suggest that
stem cells may actually trigger
the brain's own self-repair mech-
anisms by pumping out mole-
cules that boost nerve survival
and blood vessel development
and decrease neural degenera-
tion.
"We at the Center for Aging
and Brain Repair at USF Health
have been arguing, for some time
now, that stem cells are impor-
tant for brain repair because they
provide growth factors and
because they send signals to the
brain to help it repair itself," Dr.
Sanberg said. "This study in pri-
mates showed the same effects
- that the stem cells are there to
act as facilators of repair versus
the original hypothesis that stem


cells are transplanted to merely
replace an injured cell."
Dr. Paul Sanberg, Director
of the Center for Aging and
Brain Repair at USF Health,
photographed earlier this year
during a visit by Florida
Governor Charlie Crist.
Dr. Sanberg said the study
has relevance to all audiences.
"This was one of the first studies
to look at stem cells in primates
with Parkinson's disease. It's the
first step in translating that
research," he said. "We hear
about new sources of stem cells
monthly, but how we take those
cells and treat disease is going to
be a significant amount of trans-
lational work. This is one of the
first studies that starts that
process looking at primates
before going into people with
Parkinson's disease."
While the transplanted cells
appeared not to form tumors fol-
lowing transplant, Dr. Sanberg
said the translational research in
primates raises questions that
need to be addressed before
moving to human trials, includ-
ing determining the most effec-
tive cell dosing and brain sites to
target. "Pending further preclini-
cal studies," he writes in the
commentary, "the results so far
from the current study are sup-
portive for developing a safe and
effective stem cell treatment for
Parkinson's disease."
