Gas Prices Stable--Why?


Early Voting for Saint


Petersburg City Council



primary Election Starts


Monday


rniuus dau l iuiy

Intern Reporter


Saint Petersburg Tampa Bay drivers reeling
from last year's meteoric jump of gas prices from
2.25 to 3.15, resulting from the category 5 hurri-
cane Ernesto, are rather puzzled. As hurricane
Dean arrived and then began to weaken to a tropi-
cal storm the price of gas remained about the same.
Gas prices are probably still higher than Florida
drivers would like to see but the question remains
why did this hurricane have no effect on the prices?
According to AAA's Director of Public
Relations Geoff Sundstrom, gas prices did not go
up as result of the hurricane mainly for one reason.
"The oil markets are well supplied right now", says
Sundstrom, "They have a healthy supply so while
Hurricane Dean threatened to affect oil production
it did not because by the time it was near landfall it
was classified as a Category 1 hurricane."
Gas may not be cheap right now but for the
middle of hurricane season prices have stayed rel-
atively steady. In past years, especially in the sun-


Tampa The Tampa Bay
Lightning will welcome fans to
the St. Pete Times Forum this
Saturday, August 25 for IceFest,
a free hockey festival designed
to celebrate the start of the 2007-
08 season.
The special event, presented
by the St. Pete Times in conjunc-
tion with Circle K, will last from
10a.m. to 3p.m. and is highlight-
ed this year by the unveiling of
the Lightning's new logo and jer-
seys at noon.
Current Lightning players,
including Martin St. Louis,
Vaclav Prospal, Johan
Holmqvist, Filip Kuba, Marc
Denis, Jan Hlavac and Chris
Gratton, and alums, including


shine state this has not been the case. Although the
National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
predicted an "above average activity" hurricane
season, Florida residents have yet to see much
action in the first'2 months.
Dean barely affected oil production as it made
its way through to Mexico. Companies such as
Petroleos Mexicanos ( PEMEX), a nationalized
petroleum company owned by Mexico, temporari-
ly evacuated. Sundstrom also says that while Dean
threatened to affect production in the Gulf of
Mexico it did not.
So what does that mean for consumers? Will
the gas prices go back up, down or continue to stay
steady?
"No one can predict a hurricane but right now
certain economic factors point to a slowing econo-
my. Absent from any hurricanes U.S. energy prices
can continue to move lower" said Sundstrom.
Currently in the St. Pete area consumers can
expect to pay prices ranging anywhere between
$2.59 and $2.75 per gallon for regular unleaded
gas.


Dave Andreychuk and John
Tucker, are scheduled to appear.
St. Louis, Prospal, Hlavac
and Andreychuk are scheduled
to sign autographs on the main
concourse inside the St. Pete
Times Forum from 10:30-11:30
a.m., followed by Gratton, Kuba,
Denis, Holmqvist and Tucker
from 12:30-1:30 p.m.
Lightning executive vice
president & general manager Jay
Feaster and head coach John
Tortorella will participate in a Q
& A session for season tick-
etholders at lla.m., followed by
a similar session with assistant
general manager Claude Loiselle
and new assistant coach Mike
Sullivan at 1 p.m.


Fans arriving for IceFest
will enjoy a 50-foot snow slide
on the Chrysler/Jeep Plaza,
games for the kids (street hock-
ey, rock climbing, etc.), player
autographs, massage tents, live
music and live remote broadcasts
from 11 local radio stations. Hot
dogs and sodas will be offered.
for $1.00, select Lightning mer-
chandise will be available for 50
percent off and the Lightning
Foundation will hold an auction
of autographed memorabilia.
The Lightning Ice Girls, Energy
Team and ThunderBug will also
greet fans and offer free face

Picking the Correct Adversary
To paraphrase the great newsman Paul Harvey, we usually think
we know what the news is, but it's often difficult to get "the rest of
the story." That's especially true when it comes to getting accurate
information out of Iraq. But some news is getting out. And plenty of
it is good.
i Rep. Steve King recently returned from his fifth trip to Iraq. The
Iowa Republican told me of a vast improvement in troop morale since
the troop surge started a few months ago.
King says our troops are successfully capturing territory and
pacifying towns, and impressing Iraqis in many ways. One of our
warriors told King the Iraqis even suspect our forces wear air-condi-
tioned uniforms -- how else could they work so well in the stifling
heat?
Some Democrats are also impressed. Sens. Richard Durbin, Jack
Reed and Bob Casey -- all frequent critics of the Bush administration
-- have commented recently that the U.S. is making military progress
in Iraq.
Lawmakers aren't the only people seeing progress. On July 30
The New York Times ran an op-ed piece that called Iraq "A War We
Just Might Win" by scholars Michael O'Hanlon and Kenneth Pollack
of the left-leaning Brookings Institution. Both men have frequently
criticized the Bush administration's approach to the Iraq war. But
they're now impressed with our military progress.
Furthermore, they write, we're targeting our most dangerous
international enemy: Islamic extremists. "In war, sometimes it's
important to pick the right adversary, and in Iraq we seem to have
done so. A major factor in the sudden change in American fortunes
has been the outpouring of popular animus against al Qaeda and other
Salafist groups, as well as (to a lesser extent) against Moktada al-
Sadr's Mahdi Army," they wrote.
It's a critical point, because Iraq is a major front in the greater
war against terrorism. As Gen. David Petraeus explained recently, 91
Qaeda in Iraq is very much a part of Osama bin Laden's terrorist
organization.
"[It's] very clearly linked to the so-called AQSL, the al Qaeda
senior leadership, located in the Pakistan-Afghanistan border tribal
areas, without question," Petraeus told radio talk show host Alan
Colmes. Thus, the war in Iraq has allowed our military to weaken: al
Qaeda.
"We have been able to damage very seriously the media opera-
tions of al Qaeda in Iraq and their communications ability. In fact, we
even killed the three al Turki brothers, who were former[ly] in the
Afghanistan area [and] were sent over to al Qaeda in Iraq to help
shore up the situation in northern Iraq, which has been under partic-
ular pressure in the last several months," Petraeus said:: ::
Our enemies know the stakes, and they're aiming for nothing less
than victory. For example, just a few months ago Adam Gadhan, the
American spokesman for al Qaeda who's known as "Azzam the
American," announced that, "A pullout from Iraq alone, in tlie
absence of compliance with the remainder of our legitimate demands,
will get you nowhere, and will not save you from our strikes. So stop
wasting your time and trying to save face with these futile farcical
maneuvers on Capitol Hill and start making some serious moves," '
He seems to have been referring to the congressional debates
over whether to set a timetable for withdrawal from Iraq. But
(whether he knows it or not) he's making a more important point: We
can choose to leave Iraq at any time. But, unless we've defeated our
enemies there, they (and other Islamic extremists around the world)
will celebrate our pullout as a great victory; and they'll increase their
efforts to attack Americans, here in the U.S. and overseas.
His cohort Abu Hamza al-Muhajir, leader of al Qaeda in Iraq,
made that very point last October: "We will not rest from our Jihid
until we are under the olive trees of Rumieh and we have blown uip
the filthiest house -- which is called the White House." The U.S. sirl-
ply can't afford to ease up until we've defeated the men with this atti-
tude.
We're finally making progress in Iraq -- and progress in the
greater war against Islamic extremists. So, even though Americans
are usually impatient when it comes to wars, let's celebrate our recent
gains, and give our men and women in uniform what they want: the
chance to finish the job in Iraq and come home as victors.

The presence of enteric bacteria is an indica-

purpose of the Healthy Beaches Monitoring

nificant beach water quality problems.

TALLAHASSEE-Florida ranks among the
top three states with the best workforce training
programs in the nation, according to a new poll by
Expansion Management magazine.
The national business publication announced
the results of its 2007 poll of top site selection
experts today in conjunction with an article that
appears in its latest issue. Florida is ranked No. 3
for the overall quality of its workforce training
programs, behind only Georgia (No. 1) and
Alabama (No. 2) in the 50-state rating.
"What an honor and a great recognition of the
ability of Florida's workforce system to deliver a
highly skilled workforce," said Workforce Florida,
Inc. Chairman Katherine E. Wilson. "This No. 3
ranking is attributable to the innovation and strong
partnerships that are hallmarks of Florida's work-
force system and demonstrates our commitment to
sustain the Governor's vision that Florida is
indeed a state welcoming to business."
This is the ninth year Expansion Management
has conducted its poll of more than 80 site selec-
tion consultants and the first time in the poll's his-
tory that any state has made a one-year advance of
seven places in the rankings. Florida was ranked
No. 10 in the 2006 poll.
"Florida has made great inroads in the last
few years, with its workforce training programs
and site location consultants are taking notice,"
says Ken Krizner, Managing Editor of Expansion
Management magazine and the author of this
year's article on the poll. "These consultants have
judged Florida's workforce training programs to
be some of the best in the country.
This shows the state does have a workforce
that is ready to go, trainable and highly skilled."
Contributing to Florida's top ranking and
highlighted in the magazine coverage are three of
the state's leading initiatives that are often tapped
by newly relocated and expanding businesses-
the Quick Response Training (QRT), Incumbent
Worker Training (IWT) and Employed Worker
Training (EWT) grant programs. All three pro-
grams are aimed at improving workers' skills and
the competitiveness of Florida businesses. The
QRT and IWT programs are administered by
Workforce Florida. At least 16 of Florida's 24
regional workforce boards administer EWT pro-
grams. All three programs provide grants to help
business upgrade the skills of their entry-level or
experienced employees, often resulting in industry
certifications and higher wages for workers. Each
program requires a matching investment from the
businesses for their employees' training.
Since 2000, the three programs have com-
bined to award $85 million to train more than
158,000 workers. This investment has been


matched by businesses with more than $1 billion

to cover the cost of wages for those being trained,
curriculum development, equipment and other
expenses related to training, according to figures
compiled by Workforce Florida.
Florida's workforce system partners include
Workforce Florida, the Florida Agency for
Workforce Innovation, 24 Regional Workforce
Boards and nearly 100 one-stop centers.
Collectively, they make up the Employ Florida
network that provides workforce programs and
services, often in collaboration with education,
economic development and industry partners.
"The Florida Agency for Workforce
Innovation is dedicated to providing a highly qual-
ified and highly skilled workforce to help position
Florida as an economic powerhouse," said
Monesia T. Brown, Director of the Florida Agency
for Workforce Innovation. "Under the leadership
of Governor Crist, we are working together with
our business and community partners to provide a
positive business climate that attracts investment
and fuels economic growth. It is truly an honor to
be recognized as a national leader in workforce
training."
In the Expansion Management poll, site
selection consultants are asked to rate states'
workforce training programs based on their expe-
rience in advising companies opening new loca-
tions or expanding. These experts are asked to
judge states based on the financial value, usage
and applicability of their workforce programs. Top
states are recognized for having programs that are
not only high in value, but also aren't wrapped up
in red-tape requirements making them difficult to
use.
This is the ninth year the magazine has pub-
lished state rankings for workforce training pro-
grams and the second time Florida has made' it
into the top 10. In 2000 and 2002,
Florida was ranked No. 15. Rounding out the
top five in the 2007 poll are South Carolina (No.
4) and Kentucky (No. 5). Expansion Management
circulates to 45,000 executives, including CEOs
and economic development leaders. Many of the
magazine's subscribers are decision-makers foi
businesses that are seeking to expand or relocate
within the next one to three years.

with Krizner about Florida's No. 3 ranking, visil

SWIFTMUD Project will determine

environmental impact of mucky

sediments in Safety Harbor
The Southwest Florida Water Management District is working
with the Tampa Bay Estuary Program to determine the potential envi-
ronmental impact of mucky sediments in the Safety Harbor area of
Old Tampa Bay.
The Safety Harbor watershed, located within Pinellas County,
has changed significantly over the past 100 years. The watershed has
gone from being primarily rural to primarily urban. In addition, the
construction of the Lake Tarpon Outfall Canal increased the size of
the watershed draining into Safety Harbor.
These changes have led to an increase in the accumulation of
sediment and muck. Other estuaries, including Charlotte Harbor and
Chesapeake Bay, have also experienced, a build-up. The accompany-
ing watersheds have also transitioned from rural to urban watersheds.
This study will help determine the, source of the muck build-up
in Safety Harbor and whether the muck is impacting organisms that
live and feed in the sediments. After the study is completed, the part-
ners will evaluate the information and determine the next course of
action, which may include selecting projects to reduce sedimentation
in Safety Harbor or remove the muck.
The study is being conducted by the University of South
Florida's College of Marine Science, Eckerd College and the United
States Geological Survey.
The total budget for the project is $149,494. The District's share
of $94,494 will be divided between the District's Pinellas-Anclote
River Basin Board and Surface Water Improvement and Management
Program. Pinellas County and the cities of Oldsmar and Safety
Harbor have also budgeted funds for the project.

SBA Offers Drought Disaster



Assistance to Florida Counties


WASHINGTON Steven
Preston, Administrator of the
U.S. Small Business
Administration (SBA)
announced that low-interest
disaster loans are available to
small businesses located in
the counties of Baker,
Broward, Charlotte, Clay,
SCollier, Columbia, DeSoto,
Dixie, Duval, Gilchrist,
Glades, Hamilton, Hendry,
Highlands, Indian River,
Lafayette, Lee, Madison,
Martin, Miami-Dade, Nassau,
Okeechobee, Osceola, Palm
Beach, Polk, Sarasota, St.
Johns, St. Lucie, Suwannee,
and Taylor in the state of
Florida affected by the
,drought conditions commenc-
ing April 1, 2007 and contin-
uing.


Administrator Preston
took this action following an
August 13, 2007 letter from
Florida Governor Charlie
Crist requesting a SBA *dis-
aster declaration. "We look
forward to working with the
state of Florida making our
loans available to small busi-
nesses that sustained econom-
ic injury due to the drought
conditions," said
Administrator Preston. "We
will be swift in our efforts to
help the business owners in
the state of Florida with their
working capital needs."
Eligible small businesses
may qualify for loans up to
$1.5 million. Interest rates are
available at 4 percent with
loan terms up to 30 years.
SBA determines eligibility


for the loans based on the size
and type of the business and
its financial resources. Loan
amounts and terms are set by
SBA and based upon each
applicant's financial condi-
tion.
"SBA can help these
small businesses overcome
their economic losses by
offering these working capital
loans, but the help cannot
start until they submit an SBA
Disaster Loan application to
us," said Francisco *Marrero,
SBA's South Florida District
Director. Applications and
program information are
available by calling the SBA's
Customer Service Center at
1-800-659-2955 (1-800-877-

p.m.; Saturday from 9 a.m. to
5:30 p.m. EDT.
Business loan applica-
tions can also be downloaded
from the SBA website at
www.sba.gov/services/disas-
terassistance. Completed
applications should be mailed
to: U.S. Small Business
Administration, Processing

McCollum, Bronson Caution USF Begins Clinical Study of Course shopping' costing

Floridians About Fraudulent Promising New Microbicide students and colleges


Charities

Authorities concerned that con artists may try
to capitalize on recent natural disasters

TALLAHASSEE Attorney General Bill McCollum and
Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services Commissioner
Charles H. Bronson today issued a consumer advisory, warning con-
sumers about the potential for fraudulent charities or individuals ille-
gally soliciting charitable donations. Attorney General McCollum
and Commissioner Bronson both expressed their concern that in light
of the recent widespread devastation caused by Hurricane Dean, con
artists and scammers may try to take advantage of people's good
intentions by creating illegitimate charities, including internet-based
"organizations." Emails and websites requesting donations may
appear legitimate, but could be a ploy to gain personal information.
Consumers are encouraged to verify the validity of charitable organ-
izations before making any donations.
"It is absolutely reprehensible for someone to try to capitalize on
a natural disaster that had already caused widespread destruction and
loss of life," said Attorney General McCollum. "Floridians should
know that while there are numerous reputable organizations fostering
the true spirit of charity, there are those who are less than honorable
and they should be avoided at all costs."
Added Commissioner Bronson: "While natural disasters cry out
for the need for charitable organizations, what's critical is to make
sure that your contribution is going to a legitimate charity not in the
pocket of a con artist. Consumers can and should check out
whether a charity is registered in Florida by calling our toll-free hot-
line at 1 800 HELP FLA (435-7352)."
Florida law requires charities to register with the Department of
Agriculture and Consumer Services and provide financial informa-
tion about income and expenditures, according to the Solicitations of
Contributions Act under Chapter 496, Florida Statutes. Both the.
Attorney General's Office and the Department of Agriculture and
Consumer Services have pursued litigation in the past against unreg-
istered charities and individuals who were improperly soliciting
donations in the name of philanthropy. These lawsuits were typically
filed under Florida's Unfair and Deceptive Trade Piactices Act.
Penalties include fines of $10,000 per violation, $15,000 if a senior
citizen or disabled individual is the victim.
McCollum and Bronson also provided the following tips to con-
sider when deciding whether to donate to an organization:
Always make sure a charity is registered before donating and
check on how a charity spends its money. Consumers have the right
to ask for an organization's financial report and its federal tax identi-
fication number which is necessary to claim contributions as tax
deductions.
Don't judge an organization based on an impressive sounding
name. Find out what it actually does. Additionally, be wary of emo-
tional appeals and organizations that have only vague plans for
spending the funds they collect.
Never give cash. Write a check payable only to an organization-
not an individual. Be wary of organizations that offer to send a 'run-
ner' to pick up donations. Reputable charities are willing to wait for
Contributions.
Complaints about fraudulent charities can be directed to either
agency's consumer services division. The Attorney General's Office
* receives consumer complaints through the agency's fraud hotline is
1-866-9-NO-SCAM (1-866-966-7226) or through the website at
http://www.myfloridalegal.com. The Department of Agriculture and
Consumer Services can be reached at 1-800-HELP-FLA (1-800-435-
7352) or online at http:// www.800helpfla.com. Consumers can also
contact the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services to
Determine whether or not a particular organization is registered.




FSU grad wins 'On the


Lot' reality show
DreamWorks Pictures has a
brand new filmmaker on their lot,
welcomed by Steven Spielberg
himself. Recent Florida State
University Film School graduate ti
Will Bigham triumphed over
12,000 other entrants to win the ,
highly competitive reality show,
"On the Lot," a Fox network pro-
gram produced by Spielberg and
Mark Burnett.
After the competition,
Spielberg greeted Bigham at the
DreamWorks gates, and then
walked him to his new office and Photo courtesy of FSU
a $1 million development deal. ]Will Bigham winner of "On the
"We're thrilled for Will," said ot" competition.
Frank Patterson, dean of Florida State's highly acclaimed Film
School. "We're not surprised that Will performed well in the compe-
tition, given that the show's format is nearly identical to the Film
School's curriculum. While his training gave him an edge, his raw tal-
ent earned him the win. Will has the DNA of a great filmmaker. That
he's a person with superb character, too, makes us all very proud."
After finishing a global search and receiving more than 12,000
submissions, "On the Lot" producers selected a group of talented
filmmakers for the competition. The finalists, three of whom were
graduates of FSU's Film School, were gathered in Hollywood and
divided into teams to engage in a series of filmmaking exercises.
Every week, the filmmakers created short films from a genre
chosen by the producers. They struggled with crew, actors, time con-
straints, budgets and all the usual difficulties of filmmaking to com-
plete their projects. The finished films were then debuted in front of
a live studio audience, and millions of viewers at home critically eval-
uated their creative work.
Judges included actress-author-screenwriter Carrie Fisher ("Star
Wars," "Postcards From the Edge") and director-producers Brett


Ratner ("Rush Hour 3," "X-Men 3"), Garry Marshall ("Georgia
Rule," "Pretty Woman") and Jon Avnet ("Fried Green Tomatoes,"
"Risky Business"). But the filmmakers were ultimately judged by the
harshest critics of all-the public.
In the end, Bigham stood victorious with short films like "Lucky
Penny," "Glass Eye," "Nerve Endings," "Unplugged" and "The Yes
Men" to his credit. With a studio development deal, Will Bigham now
faces a much bigger challenge: impressing Steven Spielberg, again.


for HIV Prevention
By Sheryl Kay, USF
Tampa Physicians at the University of South Florida
Department of Pediatrics have begun a clinical trial of a topical vagi-
nal microbicide that holds great promise for preventing the sexual
transmission of the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV).
Microbicides are substances designed to reduce or prevent the
sexual transmission of HIV and other sexually transmitted infections
(STIs) when applied topically to the surface of the vagina. With
almost half of all people infected with HIV/AIDS being women, and
the alarmingly steady increase in HIV rates among women younger
than age 25, researchers have focused their attention on this popula-
tion.
To that end, the Microbicide Trials Network (MTN), an
HIV/AIDS clinical trials network established by the National
Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, part of the National
Institutes of Health (NIH), is partnering with the Adolescent
Medicine Trials Network for HIV/AIDS Interventions (ATN), which
is funded by the NIH's National Institute of Child Health and Human
Development. MTN and ATN will test the microbicide SPL7013 Gel
(VivaGelTM) in sexually active young women. VivaGel is being devel-
oped by Starpharma Pty.Ltd., of Melbourne, Australia. The study of
the product's safety, acceptability and ease of use, known as MTN-
004, is being conducted at USF and the University of Puerto Rico in
San Juan, chosen from among 15 current ATN sites.
According to Dr. Diane Straub, chief of Adolescent Medicine at
USF Health and USF principal investigator for the study, USF was
chosen because of its extensive experience conducting research,
including clinical trials.
"Dr. Patricia Emmanuel, who serves as the co-investigator on
this study, is the principal investigator for several federally-funded
research grants related to pediatric/adolescent HIV/AIDS at USF,
including the Adolescent Trials Network, the Pediatric AIDS Clinical
Trials Group, and others," Dr. Straub said. "Also, the USF Student
Health Services clinic provides outstanding medical care for thou-
sands of patients per year. They have an excellent women's clinic
staffed by experienced practitioners, a professionally run laboratory
and very competent support staff."
For the microbicide trial, Dr. Straub, associate professor of pedi-
atrics, and Dr. Emmanuel, professor of pediatrics, are collaborating
with Egilda Terenzi, MD, medical director for Student Health
Services.
The MTN-004 study at USF will enroll approximately 20 sexu-
ally active, HIV-negative women between 18 and 24 years old.
Participants will be randomly assigned to one of two study groups,
with neither the researchers nor the participants knowing their assign-
ment. One group will apply VivaGelTM twice a day for two weeks,
while participants in the other group will apply a placebo gel with no
active ingredients. All women in the study will be provided condoms
to be used with each act of sex.
Researchers will assess the safety of VivaGel'T compared with
the placebo gel through laboratory tests and regular clinical exami-
nations of study participants. Web-based questionnaires will also pro-
vide information about the product's acceptability, such as what par-
ticipants liked or disliked about using the gel, how their sexual part-
ners felt about its use and how likely they are to use microbicides in
the future.
Key to the success of the trial will be the recruitment of the par-
ticipants, and Dr. Straub hopes the study will appeal to women's
sense of altruism.
"Microbicides could one day provide an opportunity to cost-
effectively stem the tide of the scourge of HIV/AIDS, especially
among the most disenfranchised members of our society," Dr. Straub
said. "Getting the chance to contribute to microbicide development
and thus empowering women to protect themselves is, we think, a
powerful incentive for participation."
Participation in the study lasts three weeks, including the two-
week period that gels are used. Participants will receive financial
compensation for their time and effort.
Whether microbicides will alter the course of HIV by preventing
its transmission is still an unknown, Dr. Straub said. The current
study of VivaGel is a Phase I study, which evaluates for safety and
acceptability. If the product is deemed safe and acceptable for use,
subsequent trials will test its effectiveness.
"The pioneering studies undertaken by Dr. Straub ard her col-
leagues at USF/USF Health are very important in establishing the
safely of this microbicidal agent in successfully preventing the trans-
mission of HIV in sexually active individuals," said Abdul S. Rao,
MD, MA, DPhil, senior associate vice president for USF Health and
vice dean for research and graduate affairs at the College of
Medicine. "This is an area of research that is strategically important
for USF Health and is a critical component of its Interdisciplinary
Signature Program in Allergy, Immunology, and Infectious
Diseases."

sturgeon caviar could become a $100 million industry for the state of
Florida in little more than a decade.


By Alex Stern and Tim Lockette
UF
GAINESVILLE, Fla. It is a familiar source of frustration for
anyone who has studied in a university or community college: you
desperately need a specific course, but the class is full by the time you
get to register.
You may have been crowded out of that class by a "course shop-
per" a student who repeatedly drops and adds classes right up to the
last minute. According to a recent University of Florida study, more
than one out of every three college-level students qualifies as a course
shopper, and they are taking a toll on their colleges and fellow stu-
dents.
"Administrators have historically considered course shopping a
benign behavior," said Linda Serra Hagedom, a professor at UF's
College of Education and lead author on the study, which appeared.in
the July/August issue of The Journal of Higher Education. "We're
finding, however, that leaves empty seats in classrooms and students
who can't enroll in the courses they want."
Course shoppers are students who try to maximize their aca-
demic success by sampling courses prior to settling on a final sched-
ule.
Some students "shop" in a cyclic manner by registering for a nor-
mal course load but dropping any classes that look too tough after
the first class session, or swapping those classes for courses that seem
less challenging. The swapping process may continue until the end of
the drop-add period.
Others, known as bulk shoppers, schedule a far larger course
load than they intend to take. They then attend all the classes they've
registered for, and drop the ones they like the least.
A veteran college administrator, Hagedorn has seen ample. anec-
dotal evidence of the prevalence of course swapping. As the lead
investigator of a project called TRUCCS (or Transfer and Retention
of Urban Community College Students) Hagedorn and her colleagues
found themselves uniquely well-positioned to examine course shpp-
ping's true effects.
TRUCCS is a multiyear, comprehensive study of the college
transcripts and educational outcomes of more than 5,000 students
within the community college system in Los Angeles. While many
studies have examined student transcripts or polled students on their
backgrounds, plans, and academic habits, TRUCCS is one of the
largest studies to look at transcripts and student questionnaires in tan-
dem.
When investigators looked at course shopping among their sam-
ple, they found that 38 percent of students in the study engaged in at
least some form of course shopping. Most of those were cyclic shop-
pers. About 7 percent of the entire study body qualified as bulk shop-
pers. And some students were "mixed-bag shoppers" who did a little
of both.
It's clear that bulk shopping does the most damage, Hagedorn
said, but all kinds of course shoppers do damage to the higher educa-
tion system by blocking out fellow students, causing needless work
for administrators, and throwing a monkey wrench into class sched-
ules.
"The cost is difficult to quantify, but when you have empty seats
in a class and students who wish they could have taken that class, it's
clear that there is some waste involved," Hagedorn said.
Course-shopping appears to hold broad appeal. The study found
few variations in shopping behaviors between men and women or
people of different ethnic backgrounds. Business majors were mpre
likely than others to add and drop courses in bulk, and English and
math courses were the ones most likely to be "shopped."
The appeal is strongest among struggling students, who see
course shopping as a way to make up for academic shortcomings,
Hagedorn said. Still, the study suggests that stratagem may not work.
The authors found that while occasional course shoppers showed a
roughly average rate of course completion, frequent shoppers were
more likely to have low grades and to drop out of school entirely.
Hagedorn and her co-authors offer a number of suggestions for
reining in course shoppers. Schools could take a relatively hard line,
instituting a "three strikes" policy that bans any student from drop-
ping large numbers of classes for more than a few semesters. They
could also employ less direct techniques such as requiring teachers to
post a syllabus for each class online, which would help occasional
shoppers avoid registering for courses they aren't prepared to take.
"Dropping a course is very easy for a student," Hagedorn said.
"It might benefit the students if colleges made the process more dif-
ficult."


UF survey: Floridians

Not Entirely Sold on New

Property Tax Measure

ByCathy Keen, UF
GAINESVILLE The fate of a proposed property tax amend-
ment that would affect the existing Save Our Homes amendment in a
January statewide referendum is too close to call, a new University of
Florida survey finds.
Fifty-eight percent of Florida voters said they would vote for the
new "super exemption" measure, two percentage points shy of the 60
percent super majority.needed to make the change to Florida's con-
stitution, said David Denslow, a UF economics professor who led the
research.
"Whether the amendment will pass remains a wide-open ques-
tion," he said. "Besides the statistical insignificance of the difference
between 58 and 60 percent, there is half a year remaining before the
vote."
The referendum, which goes to voters Jan. 29, would allow
homeowners to choose between keeping the 3 percent property tax
cap already available under the Save Our Homes provision or a new
provision that would increase their homestead exemptions. If the
amendment goes into effect, homes bought after that date would not
qualify for the Save our Homes cap.
The survey indicates that nearly two-thirds, 65 percent, are
inclined to stay with Save our Homes even if the referendumsgives
them a choice, Denslow said. And few respondents who report own-
ing less expensive homes a group that would benefit from the new


super exemption said they would switch, he said.
UF's Survey Research Center added questions about the pro-
posed property tax amendment to its monthly consumer confidence
telephone survey in July. Of the 287 Florida homeowners who
responded, 277 said they had formed an opinion. They were also
asked the selling price of their homes. The survey had an error rate of
between 3 and 4 percent.

Fat is the New


Normal, FSU


Researcher Says
By Jill Elish
FSU
American women have gotten fatter as it has become more
socially acceptable to carry a few extra pounds, according to a new
study.
Florida State University Assistant Professor of Economics Frank
Heiland and Federal Reserve Bank of Boston Economist Mary Burke
are the co-authors of a paper published in the academic journal
"Economic Inquiry" that argues that the ballooning weight of the
'population has fed even more collective weight gain as our percep-
tion of what is considered a normal body size has changed.
"This is a social force that we are trying to document because the
rise in obesity has occurred so rapidly over the past 30 years," said
'Ieiland, who also is affiliated with FSU's Center for Demography
and Population Health. "Medically speaking, most agree that this
trend is a dangerous one because of its connection to diabetes, cancer
and other diseases. But psychologically, it may provide relief to know
that you are not the only one packing on the pounds."
The paper, "Social Dynamics of Obesity," is the first to provide
a mathematical model of the impact of economic, biological and
social factors on aggregate body weight distribution. It also is one of
the first studies to suggest that weight norms may change and are not
set standards based on beauty or medical ideals.
Many economists believe that people eat more-and thus gain
weight-when food prices drop, but that's just part of the story
behind the nation's dramatic weight gain since the late 1970s, accord-
inig to the researchers. The full price of a calorie has dropped by about
36 percent relative to the price of consumer goods since 1977, but
prides leveled off in the mid-1990s. And yet American women con-
tinued to get bigger.
Heiland and Burke's "social multiplier" theory offers a potential
reason why: As Americans continue to super-size their value meals.
the average weight of the population increases and people slowly
adjust their perceptions of appropriate body weight. Given that these
changes in perception may come about gradually, Heiland and Burke
suggest the nation's battle of the bulge may extend into the future.
Heiland and Burke studied body weights among American
women in the 30- to 60-year-old age bracket from 1976 to 2000.
Using data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination
Survey, they found that the weight of the average woman increased
'by 20 pounds, or 13.5 percent, during that period. There was dispro-
portionate growth among the most obese women as the 99th per-
centile weight increased a hefty 18.2 percent, from 258 to 305
pounds.
The researchers also looked at self-reports of women's, real
-weights and desired weights. In .1994, the average woman said she
weighed 147 pounds but wanted to weigh 132 pounds. By 2002, the
average woman weighed 153 pounds but wanted the scales to regis-
ter 135 pounds, according to data from the Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention's Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance
System.
The fact that even the desired weight of women' has increased
uggests there i,' less social pressuire'to lose '. elghl, Heilhnd'said, cit-
'ing ia previous study that 87 percent of Americais, including 48 per-
cent of obese Americans, believe that their body weight falls in the
"'socially acceptable" range.
While it seems thinness is increasingly idealized in popular cul-
ture-images of waif-like models and stick-thin celebrities are every-
where-there is a gap between the cultural imagery and the weights
that most people consider acceptable for themselves and others,
according to Heiland.
Biological forces also play a role in the rise of obesity. An addi-
tional pound of body weight is more likely to be fat, which does not
metabolize calories nearly as well as muscle tissue, Heiland
explained. Therefore, any increase in calorie consumption-say, one
more cookie each day-leads to greater weight gain among an ini-
'tially heavier person.
The researchers focused this study on women partly because
their weight gains have been so dramatic, Heiland said, citing a
whopper of a statistic: 33.2 percent of American women over age 20
are classified as obese, according to 2001-2004 National Health and
Nutrition Examination Survey data. However, men also have become
heavier, and the researchers believe the sa


Property Tax Continued from Page 6


The tax-cutting measure the Legislature is sending to voters
allows homeowners to stay with the terms of the current Save Our
Homes Amendment, which restricts the increases in their property
tax bills to the rate of inflation or 3 percent of the assessment for the
prior year, whichever is lower. Or they could take the new super
exemption that knocks 75 percent off of the first $200,000 of a
home's value and 15 percent off the next $300,000.
Most likely to benefit in the near term would be people planning
to buy expensive homes, Denslow said. "Anyone who moves into a
new house that is worth $500,000, for instance, would be better off
Immediately because they would get a $195,000 exemption com-
pared to a $25,000 exemption under the existing system," he said.
However, if house prices were to rise as rapidly over the next five
years as they did between 2000 and 2006, homeowners might be bet-
'ter off with Save Our Homes, which would limit annual increases in
their assessment, he said.
Another group to gain by making the switch would be those with
houses worth less than $200,000 because the taxable value of their
house would be no more than 25 percent of its market value, Denslow
said. Yet 71 percent of homeowners surveyed who said their houses
were worth $200,000 or less said they would remain with Save Our
Homes, he said.
Denslow believes they may be reluctant to make the change
because it is irrevocable.
"Once you go with the super exemption, you have given up the
Save Our Homes exemption forever," he said.
Survey respondents were more likely to say they would remain
with Save Our Homes if they had lived in their current houses for sev-
eral years and expected to remain there for a long time, Denslow said.
Sixty-four percent of Republicans favored the proposed amend-
ment, as did 58 percent of Independents and 54 percent of
Democrats.
Denslow predicts the impact of the proposal would be "substan-
tial" and vary widely by county. Rich, rapidly growing counties, such
as Palm Beach, won't be hurt too badly because a large proportion of
its housing stock is worth more than the $200,000 exemption line,
while counties such as Levy and Dixie, where growth is much slow-
er and most new homes are much cheaper, will suffer, he said.

They come from, various backgrounds, but they all have one
thing in common the desire to protect the state's natural resources.
SYesterday, 34 diverse and determined recruits officially joined the
ranks of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission (FWC) to become
conservation law enforcement officers.
Before earning that status, recruits had to complete 29 weeks of
training, which included alligator handling, man-tracking, vessel
operation, all-terrain vehicle driving, defensive tactics, boating safe-
ty enforcement and firearms.
FWC Commission Chairman Rodney Barreto praised the new
officers.
"I'm extremely proud of this group of people," Barreto said. "It's
not easy, but by successfully completing the academy, they have
joined a professional organization dedicated to protecting the state's
precious natural resources."
FWC's law enforcement commander, Col. Julie Jones, also
praised the new officers.
"These officers are''our new ambassadors," Jones said. "They
will help people, enforce Florida's laws and educate those whom
they come in contact with about our great state and its natural
resources."
The elite group will be assigned to areas throughout Florida. As
FWC officers, they will have the authority to enforce every law of the
state, but enforcing fish and wildlife laws will be their primary func-
tion.
"Resource protection is what we do every day." Jones said. "But
these officers also are prepared to do their jobs in unexpected ways -
whether it is helping people in hurricane-ravaged areas or assisting in
search-and-rescue operations."
The class started with 43 recruits, but nine of them dropped out
after the first few weeks. The recruits who stayed and made it are
eager to get to work.
A commercial fisherman had told Ben Westrope about law
enforcement positions with the FWC. Westrope, who was a squad

professor of Chemistry.


A key challenge facing doc-
tors as they treat patients suffer-
ing from cancer or other diseases
resulting from genetic mutations
is that the drugs at their disposal
often don't discriminate between
healthy cells and dangerous
ones-think of the brute-force
approach of chemotherapy, for
instance. To address this chal-
lenge, Florida State University
researchers are investigating
techniques for using certain mol-
ecules that, when exposed to
light, will kill only the harmful
cells.
Igor V. Alabugin is an asso-
ciate professor of chemistry and
biochemistry at FSU. He spe-
cializes in a binch of chemistry
known as photochemistry, in
which the interactions between
atoms, small molecules and light
are analyzed.
"When one of the two
strands of our cellular DNA is
broken, intricate cell machinery
is mobilized to repair the dam-
age," he said. "Only because this
process is efficient can humans
function in an environment full
of ultraviolet irradiation, heavy
metals and other factors that
constantly damage our cells."
However, a cell that sustains
so much damage that both DNA
strands are broken at the same
time eventually will commit sui-
cide-a process known as apop-
tosis.
"In our research, we're
working on ways to induce
apoptosis in cancer cells-or any
cells that have harmful genetic
mutations-by damaging both of
their DNA strands," Alabugin
said. "We have found that a
group of cancer-killing mole-

Class speaker Garret Fields


leader at the academy, formerly worked in research at NOAA. He
wanted a more active role in conservation.
"I wanted to be outside with people and to continue to protect
the resources," Westrope said. "I'm ready to start working."
Like Westrope, Naomii Tye also is ready to start working. A for-
mer laboratory technician for the Florida Dept. of Agriculture, she
was drawn to the FWC because of her love of the outdoors. She duck
hunts and fishes for bass.
"As long as I can remember, I wanted to be a wildlife officer,"
Tye said.
Sandra Blackburn, formerly held a civilian position as hotel
manager for the U.S. Army in Germany. A job with the FWC seemed
like a good fit when she returned to the United States two years ago.
"I enjoy being outdoors," Blackburn said. "I like educating and
helping people."
Building swimming pools was not something William Suggs
was committed to for the rest of his life, but now he is committed to
the FWC. Hailing from Pensacola, Sugcs gre" up hunting and fish-
ing.
"I want to make.sure my kids can enjoy the same things I did
when I was a kid," Suggs said.
In college, Suggs majored in criminology but realized he didn't
want to just drive around in a car on a regular beat. When he heard
what FWC law enforcement had to offer, Suggs said, "That was it."
After a year on the job, FWC Officer Doyle Cook returned to the
academy as a counselor for this class. Cook is stationed in Southwest
Florida and is glad he signed on with the FWC,
"I'm on land and on the water," Cook said. "I like the freedom
of the job. I get to go to Big Cypress, the Everglades, patrol panther
zones and go out on a boat in the Ten Thousand Islands."
As for the new graduates and what they are about to take on,
Cook recommends they take the time to learn from others.
"They should model themselves after their senior officers and
ask them a lot of questions," Cook said, "because there will be a lot
of them."


cules known as lysine conjugates
can identify a damaged spot, or
'cleavage,' in a single strand of
DNA and then induce cleavage
on the DNA strand opposite the
damage site. This 'double cleav-
age' of the DNA is very difficult
for the cell to repair and typical-
ly leads to apoptosis."
What's more, the lysine con-
jugates' cancer-killing properties
are manifested only when they
are exposed to certain types of
light, thus allowing researchers
to activate them at exactly the
right place and time, when their
concentration is high inside of
the cancer cells, Alabugin said.
"So, for example, doctors
treating a patient with an
esophageal tumor might first
inject the tumor with a drug con-
taining lysine conjugates," he
said. "Then they would insert a
fiber-optic scope down the
patient's throat to shine light on
the affected area." The light
exposure. would activate the
drug, leading to double-strand
DNA damage in the cancerous
cells-and cell death-for as
much as 25 percent to 30 percent
of the cells in the tumor, a rate
that rivals in efficiency any of the
highly complex and rare DNA-
cleaving molecules produced by
nature, Alabugin said-and, per-
haps just as importantly, avoids
damage to healthy cells.
For tumors located deeper
within the body, he pointed to
other studies showing that a
pulsed laser device can be used
to penetrate muscle and other tis-
sues, thereby activating the
drugs using near-infrared beams
of light.
As proof of principle to the


idea that lysine conjugates pos-
sess anti-cancer activity,
Alabugin collaborated with can-
cer biologist Dr. John A.
Copland of the Mayo Clinic
College of Medicine in
Jacksonville, Fla. In their tests,
several of the molecules demon-
strated little effect upon cultured
cancer cells-in this case,
metastatic human kidney cancer
cells-without light, but upon
phototherapy activation killed
more than 90 percent of the can-
cer cells with a single treatment.
Future work will include demon-
strating anti-cancer activity in an
animal model. Successful com-
pletion of the preclinical studies
then could lead to clinical trials
with human patients.
Alabugin recently collabo-
rated with four other FSU
researchers-Associate
Professor of Chemistry and
Biochemistry Nancy L.
Greenbaum and her postdoctoral
fellow, Jrrg C. Schlatterer, as
well as Alabugin's postdoctoral
fellow, Serguei V. Kovalenko,
and doctoral student Boris
Breiner-on a paper describing
the results of their research. That
paper, "DNA Damage-Site
Recognition by Lysine
Conjugates," was published in
the July 23 issue of the presti-
gious science journal
Proceedings of the National
Academy of Sciences. It can be

Shuttle Endeavour Crew




Returns Home


MARKET PLACE

image above: Space Shuttle Endeavour landed Aug. 21, 2007, at Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The
perfect landing-capped a construction and supply mission to the International Space Station.


CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. The space shuttle
Endeavour and its crew are home after completing
a 13-day journey of more than 5.2 million miles in
space. Endeavour's STS-118 mission successfully
added another truss segment, a new gyroscope and
external spare parts platform to the International
Space Station.
A couple hours after landing back at Kennedy
Space Center, the crew of STS-118 spoke enthusi-
astically about their 13 days in orbit and work on
the International Space Station.
"It was a great experience and the space sta-
tion is really, I think, a stepping stone to going
back to the moon and on to Mars some day," com-
mander Scott Kelly said.
Teacfier-turned-astronaut Barbara Morgan
said she is still getting used to gravity again, but
that spaceflight was a great experience that she
hopes more teachers get to share in.
"The flight was absolutely wonderful," she
said. "I felt like I was upside-down the whole first
day."
Canadian astronaut Dave Williams said the
thrill never gets dull.
"It's truly the ride of a lifetime," Williams said
of the launch Aug. 8. "Look over your shoulder and
you can see Hurricane Dean."
The flight delivered a new segment to the
International Space Station, along with 5,800
pounds of supplies and equipment.
As far as the ding in a couple of heat shield
tiles, Kelly said it did not bother him much.
"I was a little bit underwhelmed by the size of
the gouge," he said. "To see it, it looked rather
small."
Endeavour's Commander Scott Kelly, Pilot
Charlie Hobaugh and mission specialists Tracy
Caldwell, Rick Mastracchio, Barbara R. Morgan,
Alvin Drew and Canadian Space Agency astronaut


Dave Williams landed at NASA's Kennedy Space
Center in Florida on Tuesday at 12:32 p.m. EDT.
Williams, Mastracchio and station flight engi-
neer Clayton Anderson, with the help of their crew-
mates, made four spacewalks to accomplish the
construction tasks. The spacewalkers also complet-
ed work in preparation for upcoming assembly
missions, such as relocating an equipment cart and
installing support equipment and communication
upgrades.
During the mission, a new system that enables
docked shuttles to draw electrical power from the
station to extend visits to the outpost was activated
successfully. Because the system worked, two
additional days were added to Endeavour's mis-
sion.
STS-118 was the 119th space shuttle flight,
the 22nd flight to the station, the 20th flight for
Endeavour and the second of four missions
planned for 2007.
Although managers addressed several issues
with Endeavour's heat shield, including a small
gouge in the protective tile on the orbiter's belly,
inspections in orbit revealed no critical damage.
Endeavour's thermal protection system was
declared safe for re-entry on Monday. The orbiter
will be processed immediately for its next flight,
targeted for February 2008.
With Endeavour and its crew safely home, the
stage is set for the next phase of International
Space Station assembly. Preparations continue for
space shuttle Discovery's scheduled launch in
October of the STS-120 mission to deliver the
pressurized Node 2 connecting module to the sta-
tion.
