Do You Have the Tickets?


By Melissa McCartney
Staff Writer
"Do you have the tickets?" A scary question to
be asked after departing for an away football game
weekend. Nathan' Cowan. 25. of Venice asked
Joshua Madden, 23, of St. Petersburg. that very
question as the doors of the plane closed on their
way to Boulder, Colorado.
Madden confi- 0 r .
dently patted his J s
pockets allowing .l.
Cowan to relax and '
enjoy the in-flight
movie and a cocktail.
Road trips for .
sports fans can be a
mini vacation.

These two were not alone in their travels.
According to the Florida State Ticket office direc-
tor of ticket operations, Ben Zierden, at least 5,500
FSU fans bought tickets to this game as that was
their allotment from CU.
"We are allotted a certain amount of tickets
per each game. We take an early survey of
demands and then sell and limit the tickets based
on booster contribution levels" said Zierden.

Madden, a recent graduate, did not receive
tickets through FSU and resorted to buying his
tickets through CU's athletic department. Boosters
who receive away game tickets have generally
been donating for more than a couple years usual-
ly leaving younger alumni to get tickets through
other vendors.

and Madden say this as a time to get together away
from all the stress of the working world.
"College is the best time of your life and I take
any chance to hang out with old friends from

From September to early January fans travel
all over the United States to see their favorite col-

CLEARWATER Pinellas County Supervisor
of Elections Deborah Clark invites all Pinellas
County citizens to an Open House on Tuesday,
September 25 to view demonstrations by four vot-
ing system vendors. Pinellas County will need to
purchase a new voting system because House Bill
537 requires all Florida counties to use optical scan
voting systems with paper ballots for all elections,
effective July 2008.
"We hope our voters will come take a look at
the different optical scan systems," Clark said.
"This will help prepare them for the paper ballot
voting process they will be using, beginning with
the 2008 Primary Election."

Vendors will make continuous presentations
from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., and from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m.
at the Election Service Center, 13001 Starkey Road
in Largo. No presentations will be given from 1 to

Dawn's Deep Space Launch

Window to Vesta and Ceres


-Lil ii
By Panagiota Papakos/UF
News media question Govornor during his
tour of Professor Ingrams' laboratory for produc-
ing cellulosic ethanol from feedstocks.
Florida Gov. Charlie Crist's initiatives to com-
bat climate change brought him to the University
of Florida campus Aug. 31 to learn more about
how researchers are creating alternative fuels. The
governor met with Lonnie Ingram, a microbiology
professor who has spent more than two decades
developing a technique for creating ethanol from
plant waste. Ethanol, a gasoline alternative, may be
a key to helping the governor reach his goal of
reducing Florida's vehicle emissions by 30 percent
over the next eight years.
In what many believe to be a more environ-
mentally sensitive and cost-effective alternative to
using corn for ethanol production, Ingram's tech-
nology allows genetically engineered E. coli bacte-
ria to convert sugars found in plant fibers into the
fuel.
"I'm very proud of the work being done at the
University of Florida," Crist said. "It's important
for us to shine a light on this."
Ingram's work resulted in the university's first
royalty check for the patented technology, based on
the conversion of cellulosic biomass (inedible
parts, such as stems and leaves) to ethanol.
Currently, a biofuel developer in Osaka, Japan, is
using construction waste to make ethanol based on
Ingram's method.


"We began our work after the first and second
oil crises to look at alternatives," Ingram said. "We
have a unique leadership position in Florida with
ethanol technology, but we need to bring it back
home and make Florida the hub of the technology."
Florida leads the nation in tons of biomass
grown each year, making the state a potential
leader in the production of renewable fuels. Last
spring, the state Legislature awarded $20 million to
UF's Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences to
establish a research plant to commercialize
Ingram's technique.
"We have to do these kinds of things to move
us toward the future in a smart way," said Crist,
who recognized state Agriculture Commissioner
Charles Bronson for pushing the grant forward.
"It's also a national security issue. It's not only an
environmental issue."
The grant will allow UF, in partnership with
the Florida Crystals sugar company, to build a new
ethanol research and demonstration plant in Palm
Beach County if negotiations between the
university and the company are successful.
"He's a pioneer," Crist said. "It's amazing
what's being done. There's so much opportunity
for Florida to be a great leader."
Crist also toured Ingram's lab and met with
graduate students who are currently conducting
research. In addition, he congratulated UF for its
widespread' efforts toward campus sustainability
and conservation of resources.
"My word is 'thank you,'" Crist said.

NASA/JPL If you drive a car and you know
who you are you have invariably come upon the
dreaded dilemma of refueling. When the needle on
your gas gauge wavers over the unseemly 'E,' you
have to ask yourself one question Do I stop at the
next gas station or press on, hoping for a fuel oasis
somewhere down the road? But what if you need to
motor somewhere three billion-plus miles off the
beaten path somewhere where neither regular nor
premium unleaded have so far feared to tread?
Such is the case for NASA's latest deep space
explorer, Dawn. The 2,600 pound spacecraft's mis-
sion is to reconnoiter the asteroid belt's two biggest
occupants the massive asteroid Vesta and the even
more massive dwarf planet Ceres. To do so, Dawn
will not just scream past its prey snapping off a
flurry of images as it zooms by. No, not this space-
craft.
"Dawn will be history's first mission to go out
into the solar system, orbit and explore a distant
body, and then go on to a totally different celestial
body and explore that one," said Dawn project
manager Keyur Patel of NASA's Jet Propulsion
Laboratory, Pasadena, Calif. "To do all that you
need a spacecraft with a lot under the hood."
What Patel considers a lot under the hood is
definitely not the exo-atmospheric equivalent of a
muscle car's 426 Hemi engine. After all, it is about
a different type of performance up there -: the kind
where smooth, reliable operation and gas mileage
count more than the capability to burn rubber.
What it takes up there is a deep-space qualified
engine, a whole bunch of juice and the same kind
of gas used in photographic flash bulbs and some
car headlights.
The engine is called NASA Solar Electric
Propulsion Technology Applications Readiness.
Most people in the deep space exploration business
just refer to it as "ion propulsion." The juice is, of
course, electricity, courtesy of 54 feet of electrici-

Deep Space One Ion Engine. This image of a xenon
ion engine prototype, photographed through a port of
the vacuum chamber where it was being tested at
NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, shows the faint
blue glow of charged atoms being emitted from the
engine.
The engine, weighing 17.6 pounds or 8 kilograms,
is 15.7 inches or 40 centimeters in diameter and 15.7
inches long. The actual thrust comes from
accelerating and expelling positively charged xenon
atoms, or ions. While the ions are fired in great
numbers out the thruster at more than 110,000

low that the engine produces a gentle thrust of only

colorless gas that is four times heavier than air and
is the propellant of choice for asteroid explorers
everywhere.

Lessons in school choice

Recently, GQ magazine compiled its list of the 50 most power-
ful people in the nation's capital.' Political leaders such as
Condoleezza Rice, Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi topped the list.
But look who's at number 42: Mason Lecky, the 31-year-old
director of admissions at St. Albans School, an exclusive private
school that members of Congress often want their sons to attend.
Why wouldn't they? Accomplished graduates of St. Albans
include Al Gore, Sen. Evan Bayh and Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. Besides,
many lawmakers want to help their children escape Washington's
public schools.
That's only reasonable. By some measures, D.C. public schools
are the worst in the country. For example, District fourth-graders fih-
ished dead last in math on the government's state-by-state 2005
National Assessment of Educational Progress.
Federal lawmakers turn to schools such as St. Albans because
they know how bad the D.C. schools are..'A a survey conducted this
year by The Heritage Foundation, 37 percent of U.S. congressmen
and 45 percent of senators who responded said they sent their chil-
dren to private school. Nationwide only 11.5 percent of students go
to private schools.
But here's the problem: Many lawmakers seem to favor "school
choice for me, not for thee."
Since 2001 Congress has rejected several measures that would
have granted parents more control of their children's education.
During the first debate over the No Child Left Behind bill, for
example, the House of Representatives overwhelmingly voted down
an amendment that would have given scholarships to students attend-
ing low-performing or dangerous public schools. That vote was 273-
155. That same year, the Senate voted 58-41 to defeat a pilot program
that would have provided scholarships to low-income students.
What's interesting is that, based on the results of a 2003 Heritage
survey of where lawmakers send their children to school, both
amendments would have passed if the representatives and senators
who exercised school choice for their own families had voted in favor
of school choice for other parents.
To be fair, lawmakers have taken small steps toward allowing
school choice in D.C.
In 2004, the "D.C. Choice Incentive Act" squeaked through the
House by one vote. The same proposal sailed through the Senate by
a comfortable margin of 65-28, thus giving children trapped in low-
performing public schools the opportunity to apply for a scholarship
to attend the private school of their choice.
That's been good for kids. Two reports -- one by Georgetown
University, another by the U.S. Department of Education -- show that
the program is making a difference. Parents are more involved in their
children's education, for example. The program is so popular it has
roughly three applicants for every available slot.
No surprise here, since study after study nationwide has shown
that students using scholarships to attend private schools performed
significantly better academically than they had while assigned to a
failing public school.
As children head back to class this month, parents should ponder
whether their public schools are giving students a quality education.
When schools are failing children, our entire society is failing them
and we're putting our future at risk. It doesn't have to be that way.
"If every member of Congress who has sent their child to a pri-
vate school were to vote consistently with the choices they have exer-
cised, the [voucher] program would continue and be reauthorized
with a healthy margin," Evan Feinberg writes in his report on this
year's Heritage survey of school choice. Furthermore, "37 percent of
House Democrats have practiced school choice, but 96 percent of
Democrats who practiced school choice voted against the voucher
program in 2004."
With or without Mason Lecky in charge of admissions, St.
Albans undoubtedly will remain a popular destination for the sons 6f
policymakers. If lawmakers would extend school choice to other par-
ents, though, more Americans would be able to enjoy the benefits 6f
a quality education.

FSU Law Grads Earn FWC Reclassifies Gopher
ate on Frida B Tortoises and Postpones
Top Rate on Florida Bar Manatee Vote


Florida State University College of Law graduates ranked first in
the state on the July 2007 administration of the Florida Bar exam. For
three of the last four administrations of the exam, FSU graduates have
been first in the state.
FSU grads taking the July 2007 General Bar Examination test for
the first time passed by a rate of 89 percent. according to statistics
released Monday by the Florida Board of Bar Examiners. The over-
all passing rate of graduates taking the exam for the first time is 80.4
percent. The exam was administered July 24-25 in Tampa to 2,450
first-time takers, including 164 from FSU.
"We are all thrilled with the record of excellence our students
have achieved on the Florida Bar exam." said Dean Don Weidner.
"Special congratulations and thanks go to the May 2007 graduates for
their superb accomplishment."
Florida State's first-place ranking on the Florida Bar exam
comes close on the heels of favorable national rankings for the law
school. In its September issue, Hispanic Business magazine named
the College of Law the sixth best law school in the nation for
Hispanics. Earlier this year, U.S. News & World Report ranked the
law school's environmental law program 12th in the nation and its tax
law program 21st in the nation, tied with Columbia.

Public Input on

Ranking Water Bodies


The Southwest Florida
Water Management District is
seeking public input about the
order in which minimum flows
and levels (MFL) for lakes,
rivers, streams and aquifers in
the District will be determined.
A minimum flow or level is
the limit at which further water
withdrawals will cause signifi-
cant harm to the water resources
and/or environment. The District
Governing Board sets these lim-
its as part of achieving the deli-
cate balance between meeting
human water needs and those of
Florida's natural systems. The
District continues to make sig-
nificant progress in the establish-
ment of MFLs for key water bod-
ies.
Four public meetings will be
held on the following dates:
Monday, Oct. 1, at the
District's Bartow Service Office,
170 Century Boulevard
Wednesday, Oct. 3, at the
District's Brooksville
Headquarters, 2379 Broad Street
Monday, Oct. 8, at the
'District's Tampa Service Office,
S7601 U.S. Hwy. 301
Wednesday, Oct. 10, at the
District's Sarasota Service
Office, 6750 Fruitville Road
All meetings will begin at 6
'p.m. in the boardroom at each
office.
The purpose of the meetings
is to receive public input on a
draft revised priority schedule

ing of MFLs for rivers, streams
and other flowing waters, lakes
and aquifers. The revised sched-
ule will be considered for adop-
tion at the Governing Board's
regularly scheduled meeting in
October at the Sarasota Service
Office.

ST PETERSBURG The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) wrapped up an eventful three-day meeting last
Friday.
During the Wednesday session. Commissioners postponed, at
least until December, approval of a new species management plan
and rule changes to reclassify manatees from endangered to threat-
ened. However. Commissioners approved reclassification of gopher
tortoises from species of special concern to threatened.
The FWC also will review a draft management plan and rule pro-
posals to remove bald eagles from the imperiled species list entirely.
Final action on that issue may take place during the FWC's
December meeting at Key Largo.
Commissioners also approved four rule proposals concerning
permit requirements for activities involving marine turtles.
In addition, Commissioners heard staff reports about the
agency's deer management program, proposed rule changes to
wildlife and freshwater fisheries regulations for 2008-09 and recom-
mendations for the future of freshwater fishing in Florida.
On Thursday, Commissioners approved new rules to let licensed
trap-fishers designate people to recover and possess their traps when
the governor and FWC declare an emergency following a storm. The
rules also exempt local, state or federal officials from having to get
FWC approval before removing traps, derelict traps and trap debris
from areas where trapping is prohibited and modify the definition of
a derelict trap under a requirement that blue crab traps must be
Marked with FWC trap tags.
Commissioners also approved new rules that allow recreational
fishers to use fold-up blue crab traps up to 1 cubic foot in volume -
not necessarily pyramid-shaped and deleted a provision limiting the
base panel of fold-up traps to 1 square foot. The trap recovery and
recreational trap rules take effect in mid-October.
The Commission also proposed several rules for red snapper har-
vested in Gulf of Mexico state waters to make them consistent with
pending permanent rules for red snapper in federal waters and replace
interim federal rules.
These measures would reduce the daily recreational bag limit of
Gulf red snapper from 4 fish to 2 fish per person, establish a zero
daily bag limit for captains and crew of Gulf for-hire vessels, and
shorten the recreational fishing season for Gulf red snapper to 107,
122 or 154 days depending on the outcome of the pending federal
rules.
In addition, these proposed rule changes would reduce the mini-
mum size of commercially harvested red snapper in the Gulf and the
minimum size of imported red snapper from 15 to 13 inches total
length and reduce the daily commercial bag and trip limit of Gulf red
snapper from 4 fish to 2 fish per day. Proposals also would allow only
non-stainless steel circle hooks to harvest any reef fish when natural
baits are used and require a venting tool and a de-hooking device to
be present onboard vessels harvesting any reef fish.
A final public hearing on these proposed rule changes for Gulf
red snapper will be held during the Commission's February meeting

USF Nursing Student Wins Scholarship


Tampa Jessica Brumley. of Tampa is
one of only six exceptional registered nurses
in the nation who have been awarded schol-
arships from the March of Dimes for gradu-:
ate studies in the field of maternal-child
nursing.
"Each year the pool of applicants
becomes stronger and it becomes more diffi-
cult for our National Nurse Advisory
Committee to select the recipients," said Dr.
Jennifer L. Howse, president of the March of
Dimes. "These nurses are outstanding exam-
ples of the dedication and vision of nurses all
over the country who are working tirelessly
to improve maternal and infant health. The
March of Dimes is proud to recognize their
achievements and help them go on to make
even greater contributions to their communi-
ties."
Ms. Brumley is pursuing a doctorate at
the University of South Florida School of
Nursing. She is a nurse midwife who prac-
tices at the University of South Florida's
Physicians' Group. She also leads a
Centering Pregnancy program at Taimpa
General Hospital to improve health care for
minority women. Her doctoral dissertation


will focus on African American women,
stress and preterm birth.
"We are honored to have one of the
Nursing 'Scholarship" recipients' studying
right here in Tampa," said March of Dimes
Florida Chapter President, John Hadden.
"The commitment of nurses to keeping mom
and baby healthy exemplifies the March of
Dimes work to help give all babies a healthy
start in life," he continued.
The March of Dimes annual Graduate
Nursing Scholarship was founded in 1997 to
assist registered nurses enrolled in graduate
programs in maternal-child nursing. Each
recipient receives $5,000 to continue their
education. For the third consecutive year, the
March of Dimes awarded six scholarships
instead of the traditional four because of a
generous contribution from Proctor &
Gamble Company.
The other five scholarship winners for
2007 are:
-Jane DeLuca, of Rochester, NY, who is
pursuing a PhD in nursing at the University
of Rochester


Reclaimed Water System

Volunteer Marsh


Restrictions Lifted in South Planting to Set Tampa


Pinellas County

PINELLAS CO The South County reclaimed water system
has returned to normal operation. No longer operating under demand
management, all restrictions have been lifted. The system has stabi-
lized, with demand no longer exceeding production.
The localized rains have boosted storage and reduced the
demand on the reclaimed water system. The system is expected to
remain at normal operation, but its status is subject to rainfall and
demand.
In accordance with Southwest Florida Water Management
District guidelines, watering is discouraged during the hours of 10
a.m. and 4 p.m. to minimize evaporation. Utilities officials urge cus-
tomers to continue to conserve our valuable reclaimed water resource
by irrigating wisely and efficiently.
Customers are asked to leave their irrigation system timers at
their current settings and irrigate on an every other day basis. This
strategy may enable us to avoid having to return to limited availabil-
ity whenever we experience extended dry periods during the year.
The key to having sufficient reclaimed water for each of our cus-
tomers to maintain a healthy lawn is-to avoid having all of our cus-
tomers utilizing reclaimed water on the same days at the same time
of day.
ConservationTips:
Over-watering can actually damage a Florida lawn and prevent
a deep, drought-tolerant root system from being established.
Over-watering promotes dollarweed, chinch bug damage and
excessive thatch.
For more information, call (727) 464-4000, press "0" and tell
the representative, "I want a healthy lawn."


Bay Record
Terra Ceia Preserve volunteer marsh planting

The Terra Ceia Ecosystem Restoration Project is the result of a
joint acquisition between the Southwest Florida Water Management
District and the state to protect the coastal resources of Tampa Bay.
Portions of the state's Terra Ceia Aquatic and State Park Preserves are
co-owned. The Florida Department of Environmental Protection
(FDEP) manages the preserves.
The volunteer planting is a cooperative effort among the
District's Surface Water Improvement and Management (SWIM)
Program, Tampa Bay Watch, FDEP and the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission.
The volunteer planting is part of a large-scale ecosystem restora-
tion project within the preserves. The restoration project, which
encompasses 1,900 acres of estuarine and freshwater wetlands and
coastal uplands, is being spearheaded by the District's SWIM
Program in cooperation with FDEP. When complete, the restoration
project will be the largest restoration project within the Tampa Bay
area.
The volunteer planting will take place at two 17-acre sections of
'the restoration project that require marsh grass planting. The sites
consist of restored and created intertidal habitats.
Approximately 30,000 mash grass plants will be installed at the
sites. The completion of this volunteer planting will set a new record
of plants installed during a single volunteer planting for Tampa Bay.
Approximately 350 volunteers are expected to participate in the
planting. Tampa Bay Watch is coordinating the volunteers. Please
contact Tampa Bay Watch at (727) 867-8166 to pre-register. Tampa
Bay Watch will provide volunteers who participate with a commem-
orative t-shirt and a complimentary lunch.

FWC, Miami-Dade Fire

Rescue Dept. sign

antivenin pact
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC)
and the Miami-Dade Fire Rescue Department have teamed up to save
the lives of snakebite victims. Gov. Charlie Crist made the announce-
ment Friday.
"This partnership will save the lives of people who have been bit-
ten by venomous creatures," stated Governor Crist. "It is an excellent
example of government pooling their resources to better serve the
people of Florida."
The two agencies signed a memorandum of agreement that will
make the FWC's 12 aircraft available for emergency transportation of
antivenin within Florida. Miami-Dade has the world's largest inven-
tory of antivenin and is the only fire department-based antivenin bank
in the United States.
The project, dubbed Venom 1, provides that the FWC will pro-
vide its aircraft as one of several agencies taking part in the program,
subject to aircraft availability. The agreement does not cover flights
outside Florida.
"Rapid response saves lives when a venomous snake bites some-
body," FWC Chairman Rodney Barreto said. "Sometimes there is
very little time to treat the victim. The FWC has the resources to help
ensure victims' survival, and this agency is pleased to make them
available."
According to "The Florida Handbook," published by the Florida
Department of State, roughly 300 venomous snakebites occur annu-
ally in Florida. Fatalities are rare in the United States and other coun-
tries where prompt medical attention is available.
Al Cruz of the Miami-Dade Fire Rescue Department said coral
snake antivenin will no longer be in production in the United States
as of December 2008.
"That means every hospital in Florida will depend on us for the
antivenin," he said.
Cruz said 75-80 percent of coral snake bites in the United States
occur in Florida.

New Port Rochey

Couple Arrested for

Escrow Theft
.NEW PORT RICHEY-Florida Chief Financial Officer Alex
Sink announced today the arrests of a husband and wife on multiple
counts of theft of escrow funds and money laundering for allegedly
stealing nearly $8 million from their title company escrow accounts.
The charges against John T. Wehlau, 43, and Cheryl T. Wehlau,
41, owners and operators of Gulf Coast Title Closings & Escrow
Services in New Pdot Richey, are the result of an investigation by the
Department of Financial Services' Division of Insurance Fraud
(DIF), a statewide law enforcement agency that investigates insur-
ance fraud. The primary victim, Commonwealth Land Title
Insurance Company, covered hundreds of homebuyers' missing
funds.
"Fraud hurts all Floridians and our economy by artificially driv-
ing up costs that are passed on to all consumers," said CFO Sink, who
oversees the department. "We will protect our citizens by rooting out
these costly crimes and holding those involved accountable."
SThe Wehlaus are charged with 21 counts of theft of escrow
funds, three counts of money laundering and one count of grand
theft. The couple was arrested Thursday at their New Port Richey
home and booked into the Pasco County Jail. Bond was set for each
at $5 million, $200,000 for each charge filed against them. If con-
victed on all of the charges, they could face a sentence of up to 30
years in prison on each count.
Detective Steven Firestone, DIF's lead investigator in the case,
said the investigation revealed that the alleged thefts of escrow funds
began around January 2004 and consisted of 21 documented defalca-
tion transactions of over $100,000, and that the defalcations, or thefts,
Were documented to have increased in amounts through October
2006. These alleged thefts ceased only when an audit revealed a dras-
,.tic shortfall in Gulf Coast's escrow accounts and Commonwealth
Land Title Insurance Company stopped Gulf Coast's business in early
January 2006.
The Civil Court of the 6th Judicial Circuit, Civil Division,
ordered a receiver appointed on January 19, 2006, to take over the
company and wind down Gulf Coast Title Closings & Escrow
Services, Inc. At the time of the audit, the escrow accounts held more
than $9.4 million in escrow monies. The receiver found only $1.5
million in Gulf Coast's accounts, including their escrow accounts and
operating accounts, and found more than $7.9 million missing.
The investigation indicated that the Wehlaus allegedly used the
money to fund a lavish lifestyle, including the purchase of a $1.3 mil-
lion dollar home using $390,000 in misappropriated funds from the
Gulf Coast escrow account as a down payment, and a $271,000 con-
dominium for their daughter paid in cash. Other purchases included
vehicles, trips, a single monthly American Express bill of more than
$72,000, a single $3,200 Ruth's Chris Steakhouse dinner bill and
other personal expenses that allegedly were documented as funded
via stolen escrow monies.
These charges will be prosecuted in Pinellas County by Attorney
General Bill McCollum's Office of Statewide Prosecution. The
department anticipates filing action against the Wehlaus' title agency
license in the next few days.
The Department of Financial Services, Division of Insurance
Fraud, investigates fraud in all types of insurance, including health.
life, auto, property and workers' compensation. To report informa-
tion about this case or any other possible insurance fraud case, call
the department's Fraud Fighters hotline at 1-800-378-0445. A reward
of up to $25,000 may be offered for information leading to a convic-
tion.


Two arrested in Saint

Petersburg for

Unregistered

Telemarketing Operation

TALLAHASSEE Florida Agriculture and Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H. Bronson has announced the arrest of two
Pinellas County men for running an unregistered telemarketing oper-
ation.
Arrested by Bronson's Office of Agricultural Law Enforcement
(OALE) on charges of telemarketing without a license and hiring
unregistered sales people, both third-degree felonies, were James
Lucas Ezell, 28, and Robert Lee Vaughan, 27, both of Redington
Shores. The suspects were booked into the Pinellas County Jail on a
$5,000 bond.
According to OALE, Ezell and Vaughan and their associates
were operating an unregistered telemarketing business. The business
contracted with consumers to sell advertising for vacant land and
time-share properties.
According to the Division of Consumer Services, the business
applied for a telemarketing license but was issued a denial letter on
August 9 for deficiencies in its application. Also, numerous com-
plaints were on file with the Attorney General's Office of Florida and
New Mexico involving questionable activities conducted by this busi-
ness. At the time of the arrests on Wednesday, the business U.S.
Properties Listings LLC was shut down by the Division of
Consumer Services with the issuance of a cease-and-desist order.
The Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services
regulates telemarketers in Florida. Bronson encourages all Floridians
to call his department's Division of Consumer Services at 1-800
HELPFLA (1-800-435-7352) to check on the registration status of a
telemarketer or to file a complaint against any such company.


USF Professor

Contributes to Malaria

Treatment Research
Tampa- A USF public health professor will contribute data to a
new global network to monitor antimalarial drug resistance and guide
malaria treatment and prevention policies.
Dennis Kyle, PhD, a professor in the College of Public Health's
Department of Global Health, was among the authors of a series of
articles published online Sept. 6 in the Malaria Journal. The dozens
of leading researchers and policymakers outlined the case for estab-
lishing a World Antimalarial Resistance Network (WARN). The net-
work launches a coordinated global effort to tackle the parasitic dis-
ease, which threatens half the world's population and kills an esti-
mated 1 to 2.7 million people every year.
Dr. Kyle chaired the subcommittee on in vifro antimalarial drug
susceptibility and was senior author of the Malaria Journal paper
describing that aspect of the WARN system.
One of the major aims of WARN is to facilitate worldwide mon-
itoring and characterization of drug resistance, particularly any resist-
ance to the newest generation of antimalarial drugs called
artemisinin-based combination therapies (ACTs). ACTs help reduce
the chances that a mutation will disarm artemisinin by combining
derivatives of that drug with other compounds in a potent multidrug
cocktail.
"ACTs are the best remaining treatment almost everywhere, but
there are already hints that resistance to artemisinins is emerging and
resistance has compromised the effectiveness of some ACT partner
drugs ," Dr. Kyle said. "The network will provide the most sensitive
bellwether of the emergence of resistant parasites. There is no time to
waste."
WARN will consist of four linked, open-access databases con-
taining the following information:
*Clinical drug effectiveness
* In vitro (laboratory) response of malaria parasites to drugs
* Prevalence of molecular markers of drug resistance
* Pharmacological characteristics of drugs in different groups of
patients
Dr. Kyle's USF team will be among the WARN network of lab-
oratories establishing measures of baseline sensitivity to commonly
used antimalarial drugs from key regions of the world, including
Africa, Asia and South America.
The resulting database will help monitor changes in parasite
resistance over time, speed detection of strains of malaria with novel
drug resistance profiles, and investigate suitable alternative treat-
ments.
The databases will include freely available tools to make adding
information straightforward, and to give researchers the opportunity
to analyze and use the information in a variety of ways. Information
on individual patients will be collated in a standardized way, which
should make it easier for researchers to compare directly or pool data
from different sites across the world.
WARN's founders hope that the databases will help speed the
publication process for scientists. This, in turn, means that policy-
makers and malaria control managers will have access to timely
information on the temporal and geographic trends of drug resist-
ance, allowing them to take action as soon as resistant malaria para-
sites are detected.
Drug resistance is a major threat to the control and eradication of
malaria and can lead to treatment failure, increased spread of the dis-
ease, and higher incidences of illness and death. Many older anti-
malarials. including chloroquine and mefloquine, are now of limited
use because of drug resistance.
Today, more than 50 countries recommend ACTs as first-line
therapy for falciparum malaria, the most severe form of the disease.
While these newer treatments are currently effective, researchers
know that resistance to ACTs will emerge in the future.
The network's launch follows a meeting of leading malaria
researchers and policymakers, sponsored by the Bill and Melinda
Gates Foundation, in Cambridge, UK, in late 2006.

UF Experts Fashion

Prosthetic Ears for

Young Son of

Olympic Medalist


GAINESVILLE, Fla. For the past week, 5-year-old Jorden
Flowers, hands flashing through the air, has excitedly signed the
words as he arrives at the University of Florida College of
Dentistry: "New ears!"
One of a set of fraternal twins born 10 weeks prematurely and
weighing less than 3 pounds. Jorden had no ear canals or auditory
nerves, leaving him completely deaf. Small skin flaps appeared
where his ears should have been.
The son of Olympic bobsled champion Vonetta Flowers the
first black athlete from any nation to win a gold medal in the Winter
Olympics is logging his own entry in the record books as one of
the youngest patients to receive prosthetic ears anchored by implant-
ed posts. UF medical artists have fashioned them out of silicone, cast-
ing them from his twin brother's ears and coloring them to match
Jorden's skin tone.
Jorden is delighted with his new look.
"He treats them like a new pair of shoes. He thinks that the only
time he should wear them is when he's going out and he wants to take
them off as soon as he gets home," Flowers said. "I think he's trying
to protect them from getting dirty or from getting damaged by play-
ing too rough with his brother."
The new ears are an exhilarating end to Jorden's long journey
from silence to sound, his parents say. Two years ago, they took him
to Italy, where he became the only child in the U.S. and one of a
handful of children worldwide to undergo auditory brain stem
implant surgery. He's since gone from being 100 percent deaf to
being able to hear and is learning to speak.
Jorden's condition, bilateral microtia, is characterized by only
partial formation of or the absence of the outer ear on both sides of
the head. The National Craniofacial Association estimates it occurs in
I hn every 25,000 births: Jorden's twin, Jaden, was born with normal
ears and can hear.
"We didn't know until he was born that there were some prob-
lems, and the doctors said we would have to run tests to determine
what the problems were," Flowers said. "The doctors tried different
hearing aids, and we thought they might be working and that he was
getting some sound from us as a baby. It wasn't until Jorden was
about a year and a half when we finally understood, 'OK, he's not
getting anything.' "
Determined for Jorden to have every opportunity to hear, his par-
ents scheduled him for the auditory brain stem implant procedure.
During the surgery, electrodes were placed on the area of the brain
responsible for processing sound.
An external processor, designed to tuck behind an ear like a hear-
ing aid, picks up sound and transmits it electronically to the brain,
essentially acting as proxy for Jorden's missing auditory nerves.
Because of the implant, Jorden now can hear, and his parents are
thrilled that he responds to their voices and is learning to speak.
"Jorden hears us, and he wants to hear us," said Johnny Flowers,
Jorden's dad. "He has'a large vocabulary from signing. He's trying to
speak now, instead of signing he's trying to say the words he has
in his mind."
The prosthetic ears fashioned at UF will support the processor
for Jorden's auditory brain stem implant and will provide him with a
more natural appearance. They are embedded with magnets that help
affix the ears to metal posts surgically placed in his skull at Children's
Hospital of Alabama, located in his hometown of Birmingham.
"We do a lot of bone-anchored hearing aids in children. This is
very similar to that type of procedure," said Dr. J. Scott Hill, a staff
surgeon at Children's Hospital and an assistant clinical professor of
surgery at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. Hill has been
Jorden and Jaden's ear-nose-and-throat specialist-since birth. "It's
really remarkable, particularly for children who are not candidates for
conventional ear reconstruction."
Hill and his team at Children's Hospital of Alabama estimated
they see 90 percent of the children in Alabama born with microtia and
said the combination of Jorden's auditory abnormalities is very rare.
Last week, UF anaplastologist Robert Mann, a medical artist
who specializes in the preparation and fitting of prosthetic devices,
made casts of Jorden's brother Jaden's ears. From those he made wax
models,'which he shaped and customized to Jorden's anatomy and to
the abutments placed to support the ears. Mann next made plaster
casts of them, which were used to form the permanent silicone ears.
He then matched the color of the silicone ears to Jorden's skin tone
by custom painting each prosthesis.
About 80 patients a year benefit from the artistry and surgical
expertise of dentistry's Maxillofacial Prosthetic Services, a division
of the college's department of prosthodontics directed by Dr. Glenn
Turner, one of the few maxillofacial prosthetic specialists nationwide.
The division creates lifelike prostheses for patients missing eyes,
noses, ears, cheeks, chins even fingers because of cancer sur-
gery, traumatic injury or congenital birth defects.
"The psychological advantage for Jorden of having ears like
other children, even at an age as young as 5 years, is tremendous,"
said Turner. "He's starting school, and the prosthetic ears will help
Jorden feel and be treated just like any other child."
Jorden started kindergarten this week at Jacksonville's Clark
School, which specializes in speech training for hearing-impaired
children. His parents say their hope for the future is that he will be
able to graduate from the school's oral program after second grade
and be mainstreamed into a regular classroom.
"We've been extremely blessed to have so many wonderful sup-
porters like Allianz, Faith Chapel Christian Center and many others
that have helped us throughout our journey. Because of their efforts
our son's life will be changed forever," said Johnny Flowers. "A cou-
ple of weeks ago, Jorden spontaneously said, 'I love you' to his mom.
That, to us, is worth any of the effort that we've put forth, and any of
the effort that anybody else has put forth.


"We know that when we tell him we love him, he can hear us,"
Flowers said.

CFO SINK ADDS LINK TO

MYFLORIDACFO.COM
TO GUIDE FLORIDIANS ON EQUITY INDEXED
ANNUITIES

TALLAHASSEE-Florida Chief Financial Officer Alex Sink
has created a link at MyFloridaCFO.com to help consumers better
understand equity indexed annuities, which have become big sellers
despite being a relatively new and complex annuity product.
Annuities were the subject of a hearing Wednesday before the United
States Senate's Special Committee on Aging that addressed reported
marketing abuses.
Often touted as a way for investors to realize stock-market-like
gains without the risk, equity indexed annuities have proven confus-
ing to some investors who have complained to the Department of
Financial Services Consumer Helpline of being misled about how the
product works or not having their expectations met. These products
can come with hidden penalties, costs and fees, and hefty multi-year
surrender charges and may not be ideal for some senior citizens.
"As with any investment product, it is important for consumers
to read and understand any document before signing and get all
agreements in writing," said CFO Sink, who oversees the department.
"Our aim in providing this link is to help consumers ask the right
questions to protect themselves and invest their money in a way that
best serves their needs."
To view the Equity Indexed Annuities link, go to
MyFloridaCFO.com and click on the Equity Indexed Annuity Alert
button on the right side of the home page. The link includes defini-
tions of key terms relating to equity indexed annuities, explains fees
and charges that may be incurred, points out important questions to
ask and provides warning signs of potential fraud. Consumers with
questions or complaints regarding equity indexed annuities should
call the department's Consumer Helpline at 1-800-342-2762 or log
on to MyFloridaCFO.com.
In July, CFO Sink revoked the license of a south Florida insur-
ance agent and ordered him to pay a $40,000 fine for targeting senior
citizens between the ages of 75 and 90, some suffering from demen-
tia, for the sale of unsuitable annuity products. In one instance,
Joseph John Ripa, 48, convinced an 83-year-old retiree seeking sup-
plemental retirement income to invest his entire liquid net worth in an
equity indexed annuity that provided no immediate income and car-
ried 13 years of surrender charges as high as 17 percent.
Ripa was aware that the products he was selling were unsuitable
for the seniors he targeted, but concealed that fact by failing to dis-
close to his clients the applicable surrender charges and penalties,
along with other potentially harmful features of the products.


ST. PETERSBURG


FIRE AND RESCUE


RECEIVES 2007


ACCREDITATION



ST PETERSBURG St. Petersburg Fire and Rescue recently
received accredited fire agency status from the Commission for
Public Safety Excellence (CPSE).
St. Petersburg Fire and Rescue is one of only 15 agencies in
Florida accredited by CPSE and one of only 30 Class II Insurance
Services Office (ISO) agencies in Florida. "The men and women of
St. Petersburg Fire & Rescue are dedicated to serving the public
through the professional delivery of exceptional service, both emer-
gency and non-emergency. The end result of their hard work is vali-
dated and exhibited through the accreditation process," said Fire
Chief James D. Large.
With 30 pieces of firefighting apparatus, 13 fire stations, and a
force of more than 300 firefighters and paramedics, St. Petersburg
Fire and Rescue protects the lives and property of more than 260,000
residents and responds to more than 40,000 emergency incidents
annually. St. Petersburg Fire and Rescue is committed to serve all cit-
izens of our community by promoting, protecting and improving their
health, safety and quality of life through exceptional emergency serv-
ice and education.
The CPSE accreditation process involves evaluating Fire and
Rescue agencies through the submission of a Self Assessment
Manual, Strategic Plan, Standard of Response Plan, a site visit and a
question and answer session with the Commission. St. Petersburg
Fire and Rescue was previously accredited in 2002, with the accred-
itation period lasting five years with annual compliance reports.
