Drop off sites are located around the city of St. Petersburg. This
particular site is located at Crescent Lake Park. The site hosts about 6
different receptacles and is open normal business hours.

How do you recycle? Depending on the city you live in you can
take a walk down your drive way but some residents have to leave
their house. Is one more successful than the other? The answers vary
but regardless each city has a program designed to minimize waste in
Pinellas County.
Both methods of recycling have their own advantages and bene-
fits to the city. The recycling decision goes city by city throughout the
county. Many cities in Pinellas County present the drop off option but
some offer the curbside pickup and have maintained it for years.
Pinellas Park is one of those cities.
"We have had curbside pickup for years without interruption. It
is a very successful system for us, more so than drop-off. A lot more
people participate because it is convenient." says Pinellas Park Media
Relations Official Tim Caddell.
Pinellas Park, who has a contract with Waste Management, sup-
plies residents with blue trash cans reserved for recycling and picks
it'up once a week.
The city of St. Petersburg has the opposite program. They offer
numerous places for residents to drop off recyclables throughout the
city. Their Web site explains to residents what can and cannot be
dropped off at which locations. The drop off sites are open seven days
a week as compared to curbside that is picked up once a week.
"St. Petersburg actually has a very successful drop off program
with a very high per capital rate" said Bill Sundstrom, Administrative
Coordinator for the St. Petersburg Sanitation Department, "To obtain
that information we take the pounds of recycled material and divide
it by the population."
These drop off centers were previously referred to as
Recyclamat/Brush sites and are now called Recycle Centers.
"There are about 60 city sites where people can drop things off
and probably 100 more that are located at private places such as
churches and offices, some including brush drop off." adds
Sundstrom.
Residents of Pasco County take advantage of curbside with bags
instead of bins. They require residents who wish to recycle to place
items in a specially designated blue bag and place it outside the night
before.
Recycling methods change from city to city, county to county but
regardless cities are doing something to minimize garbage. Recycling
is a community effort and by the looks of Pinellas County, residents
are participating whether they have it picked up or drop it off.

USF Mourns Loss of

Meningitis and Trea
TAMPA Students, faculty, and staff at the University of South
Florida's Tampa campus are mourning the death of a female student
from a suspected case of bacterial meningitis. Officials at USF were
notified late this morning that 19-year old Rachel Futterman had
passed away. Since the diagnosis on Saturday, students who may
have had direct contact with the victim have been identified, located,
and treated with a strong antibiotic, Cipro. In addition, a shipment of
the vaccine is available for long-term protection of students who
have not been vaccinated.
"Rachel was our student and part of our family," said Judy
Genshaft, president of USE, "It has been an emotional weekend, and
our hearts and prayers go out to her family and friends. We'll do
everything we can to provide counseling and support services to
those who need them."
Ms. Futterman was living in a sorority house on campus, and
according to her friends, was not feeling well on Friday. Sorority sis-
ters took care of her throughout the day. On Saturday morning they
became alarmed and rushed her to the hospital, where doctors made
the diagnosis of possible bacterial meningitis late in the morning. By
evening, USF and Hillsborough County health officials had identi-
fied and treated most of the students who possibly had direct contact
with Ms. Futterman during the time she was likely to be conta-
gious-about 24 hours before the appearance of symptoms.
Bacterial meningitis is a rare but potentially fatal infection, and
it is not easy to transmit. It can be transmitted through a droplet from
sneezing or coughing that comes in direct contact with another per-
son, but it is mostly spread through intimate contact such as sharing
cigarettes and drinking glasses, or kissing. There must be contact
with bodily fluids such as saliva. The bacteria dies very quickly on
surfaces outside the body. You would not be considered in danger just
by being in the same room as someone who is contagious-there
would have to be direct contact. For this reason, students in Ms.
Futterman's classes are not believed to be in danger of developing the
disease.
Ms. Futterman did not attend classes during the period she was
likely to be contagious, according to Egilda Terenzi, M.D., director
of USF's Student Health Service. As an extra precaution, however,
administration officials identified students in some of her classes and
sent an email to the students and faculty to alert them that they
should be alert to any symptoms consistent with bacterial meningitis.
On Sunday, direct phone calls were made to more than 200 students.
Saturday night, an email alert was sent to all students, faculty,
and staff at USF to alert them to the situation, to offer information
about the disease, and to offer a phone number and the hours that the
Student Health Center would be open on Sunday.

Student to Bacterial

its Exposed Student
"Our first reaction to the diagnosis on Saturday was sadness for
the student and her family," said Dr. Jennifer Meningall, vice presi-
dent of Student Affairs. "We were concerned that members of her
sorority were okay, both mentally and physically. At the same'time,
we had to gather all the information we could, identify students who
might have had direct contact with the victim, and go the extra mile
to alert everyone on campus. Given the size of the university, very
few people would have potentially had direct contact, but we felt
everyone needed to know so they could take the precautions they
believe necessary."
Members of the sorority were instrumental in helping to identi-
fy students who potentially had direct contact during the day or two
leading up to the outbreak of symptoms. Dr. Terenzi and Warren
McDougle of the Hillsborough County Health Department were sta-
tioned at the sorority Saturday afternoon, giving Cipro to students
who knew Ms. Futterman. On Sunday, Dr. Terenzi was stationed at
the Student Health Center, giving Cipro to students who believed
they might have been in contact with the victim.
Students who live in residence halls at USF are required to be
vaccinated against bacterial meningitis unless the student signs a
waiver. By Monday morning, 200 new doses of the vaccine were
expected to arrive on campus for students who have not previously
been immunized but will change their minds given this recent event.
The cost of the vaccination is $90 (USF charges only for the medi-
cine's cost). Students may contact the Student Health Center if they
want the vaccination.
"Cipro-the pill we gave to students over the weekend-is for
people who may have had direct contact with someone with bacteri-
al meningitis." said Dr. Terenzi. "The vaccination is a drug called
Menactra. It's for long-term protection."
When someone develops bacterial meningitis symptoms, it's vir-
tually impossible to trace the source of the disease. Bacterial menin-
gitis-known as meningococcal meningitis-strikes about 3,000
Americans each year and is responsible for approximately, 300
deaths annually. Symptoms of bacterial meningitis can be mistaken
for the flu in the early stages, including fever, severe headache,.stiff
neck, nausea, vomiting, rash, and lethargy.
Any students, faculty, or staff who have questions or concerns
may call the USF Student Health Center at (813) 974-2331.
Anyone who believes they may have been in contact with the
student and begins experiencing symptoms similar to those described
above should contact their physician immediately for antibiotic pre-
ventive treatment.
A memorial service was held on campus this past Tuesday.

Osama's Crazy Makeover

Osama bin Laden commemorated the sixth anniversary of the
September 11, 2001, attack with a surprising left-leaning rhetorical
attack on America and the West, which was distributed to TV chari-
nels and on the Internet last Friday.
It was a sad reminder that the mass murderer is still at large. And
beyond the plugs for an American New Left philosopher and a former
CIA analyst, the chilling message was: convert to Islam, or else. Two
attacks which were recently avoided in Denmark and Germany, while
dozens were murdered in India and Algeria. Europe and the United
States, India and the Middle East. The whole world is the jihadi bat-
tlefield.
If those who- have been attacked by jihadis won't fight ih
Afghanistan, al Qaeda will reinstate it base there, from where it can
reach the world. And if Iraq goes wrong, al Qaeda will claim victory
and expand its operations to Jordan and Saudi Arabia.
It is not just the matter of Western survival to stop the new
aggressive Islamist totalitarianism today. Nazism and communism
originated in the heart of Europe. Thankfully, radical Islam, of which
bin Laden is a leader and a symbol, has not. But it is spreading froin
Madrid to Manila. The West needs to find common ground to work
with other countries and cultures to eradicate this existential threat;
Radical Islam denies rights to at least half of humankind to
women and imposes a uniform and brutal religious routine, in
which Christians, Jews, are reduced to the lower status of the
Dhimmi, while Buddhists and Hindus and are forced to convert under
the threat of death.
Grotesquely, bin Laden combines the ancient call of conversion
by the sword with the post-modern rant against "interest-related debt,
insane taxes and real estate mortgages, and global warming."
Osama's rant is Muhammad meet Herbert Marcuse, the capitalism-
hating U.S. left-wing philosopher. If he hasn't been wanted by every
intelligence agency on the globe, Osama would be celebrated on
every leftist campus around the globe.
Many in the intelligence community believe credit for the latest
Osama message's development and possibly speechwriting and video
production belongs to the American Adam Gadahn, the al Qaeda
communications chief, wanted in the U.S. for treason. He is busy
developing the Osama brand.
Just as Mao and Che T-shirts were the latest fashion cry in 1969,
so were Yasser Arafat's head scarves in 1979. Osama could start his
own fashion fad or even clothes and bag line. Henna-died trimmed
beard, anyone? What's next Afghan-style women's cloaks? Burka
Barbies? An MTV fashion show?
Jokes aside, the terror's uber-chief ma) teaching oiutto the'lett-
ist fringe, while the aritiwar coalition de facto has already'married
Islamists with other America-haters. Europe's Trotskyite intellectt-
als, blinded by their hatred of America and capitalism, are training
radical Muslims in the black arts of propaganda. There is a consider-
able number of alienated men and women both in Europe and the
United States who convert to the radical stream of Islam and are will-
ing to die for the cause.
These converts were recently busy at work in Germany's Bladk
Forest, assembling a huge hydrogen peroxide bomb, with which they
planned to hit Frankfurt airport and Ramstein U.S. Air Force base.
Other cells, which included converts trained in Pakistan's jihadi
camps, were busted in Denmark and the United Kingdom.
Just like on September 11, 2001, and two months ago in London,
and Glasgow, hitting the hubs of commerce and transportation remain
an al Qaeda priority. They may still strike again in the U.S.,
Europe, Iraq or North Africa.
Fortunately, al Qaeda is failing so far to bring the West down, but
not for lack of trying. An attack with weapons of mass destruction '
nuclear, chemical or biological, may exacerbate the conflict ahd
cause an economic downturn.
In the past, Osama's followers tried to attack Abuqaiq, and other
important hubs of Saudi oil industry. Miraculously, they failed.
Western consumers are paying huge terror premiums for oil, which
more than doubled since the September 11, 2001, attacks.
When Saudi Arabia plans to train 35,000 guards for its oil and
other infrastructure, it is not doing so because the Kingdom is safe.
When the desert kingdom spends more than $10 billion to diversify
its pipeline network, it is not doing so because oil is not a target. Who
pays for all this security? We do.
The West needs to boost the main components in our fight
against jihadism: ideas, symbols, people and knowledge. We need to
train more intelligence officers and experts who understand the lah-
guages, religion, history and geography of radical Islam. As Sun Tsh,
ancient China's military master, wrote: "Know your enemy and know
yourself. In 100 battles you won't be defeated."
If we study them and are fully committed to their defeat, the
jihadis will lose on the battlefields, on the Internet and in the battle of
hearts and minds. Their sources of financing need to be shut down, as
do their Web sites, religious "schools" and training camps.
The United States and the rest of the world will not accept
Osama's crazy ideas of world domination or convert to his brand of
totalitarian religion, hair dye and beauty makeover notwithstanding.

FL-DOH TO BEGIN Florida's Consumer

SCREENING NEWBORNS FOR Confidence Rises


CYSTIC FIBROSIS
Florida Screening for All Disorders Recommended by March
of Dimes and American College of Medical Genetics --
TALLAHASSEE -The Florida Department of Health's Newborn
* Screening Program within Children's Medical Services (CMS) will
begin screening all newborns for cystic fibrosis beginning September
S17, 2007. The addition of cystic fibrosis to the existing panel of dis-
orders screened in Florida completes the expansion proposed in
November 2004. Most disorders screened in Florida's Newborn
Screening Program, if detected early, can prevent mental retardation
and even death.
"We are pleased to report that with the addition of cystic fibrosis
to the list of disorders Florida is screening for, we are now screening
for all 29 recommended by the March of Dimes and American
College of Medical Genetics," State Surgeon General of Health Ana
Viamonte Ros, M.D., M.P.H. said. "We have not only met, but
exceeded the national standards in newborn screening. Information
from these tests will provide opportunities for earlier detection and
healthier, longer lives for newborn children throughout Florida."
Cystic fibrosis is a life-threatening hereditary disorder caused by
a genetic mutation. Testing will include detection of trypsinogen and
if elevated, a second level of testing for the genetic mutation. Infants
will be referred for additional evaluation and testing at a Cystic
Fibrosis Center designated by Children's Medical Services to provide
confirmatory services. Based on Florida's expected annual birth rate
and the method of testing used by the Florida Newborn Screening
Program to screen for cystic fibrosis, it is estimated that 815 infants
will be referred to a Cystic Fibrosis Center. It is estimated that
approximately 51 infants will actually be diagnosed with cystic fibro-
sis each year.

Slightly

By: Cathy Keen
GAINESVILLE- Florida's consumer confidence inched up one
point to 79 in September but is likely to continue its downward trend
in the coming months thanks to higher gas prices and an expansion of
the housing downturn to other segments of the economy, a new
University of Florida study finds.
"In the short run we expect things to get a bit worse before they
improve and consumer confidence to decline," said Chris McCarty,
director of the Survey Research Center at UF's Bureau of Economic
and Business Research. "The obvious culprit is the effect of the now
burst housing bubble. The argument that the effect of the declining
housing market will be contained has now been proven incorrect.
What was a surprise was the extent to which investment in the U.S.
housing market had become a global phenomenon. Central banks
around the world have discovered that they cannot insulate them-
selves from this problem."
There are also some signs that consequences from the housing
downturn are creeping into non-housing related employment,
McCarty said. Employment has been the bright spot that had been
keeping the economy afloat, he said.
Gas prices also are hurting consumer confidence and they are
unlikely to improve anytime soon, McCarty said.
"Gas prices have risen in September, a time when they typically
fall due to lower demand following the summer travel season," he
said. "Given the Federal Reserve's dramatic cut in interest rates, the
dollar will be lower with respect to other currencies, which will ulti-
mately make gas more expensive."
The Federal Reserve reduced its benchmark interest rate on Sept.
18 by an unexpectedly large one-half percentage point, to 4.75 per-
cent from 5.25 percent.
"Some economists question whether it was wise for the Federal
Reserve to lower interest rates so much," McCarty said. "This may
simply delay the inevitable, which is that the prices of some houses
will have to decline to levels that more closely follow the trend."
The slight rise in consumer confidence was due to increases in
three of the five components that make up the index. Expectations
about U.S. economic conditions over the next five years rose four
points to 81, while expectations about U.S. economic conditions over
the next year increased two points to 72. Perceptions of personal
finances now compared to a year ago inched up one point to 73.
The only component of the index to decline was perceptions of
whether it is a good time to buy big-ticket items, which fell two
points to 83. Perceptions of personal finances a year from now
remained unchanged at 88.
The research center conducts the Florida Consumer Attitude
Survey monthly. Respondents are 18 or older and live in households
telephoned randomly. The preliminary index for September was con-
ducted from 423 responses.
Consumer confidence is designed to help predict buying patterns
by measuring the mood of consumers toward purchasing. Although
other economic indicators also predict buying patterns, consumer
confidence tends to be available sooner. The index is benchmarked to
1966, so a value of 100 represents the same level of confidence for
the year. The value of the index is in comparing changes over time
rather than.looking at an isolated month.

What is bacterial meningitis? Meningococcal meningitis is a
rare but potentially fatal bacterial infection. The disease is expressed
as either meningococcal meningitis, an inflammation of the mem-
branes surrounding the brain and spinal cord, or meningococcemia,
the presence of bacteria in the blood.
What causes it? Meningococcal meningitis is caused by the
bacterium Neisseria meningitidis, a leading cause of meningitis and
septicemia (or blood poisoning) in teenagers and young adults in the
United States. Meningitis and septicemia are the most common man-
ifestations of the disease, although they have been expressed as sep-
tic arthritis, pneumonia, brain inflammation and other syndromes.
How many people contract bacterial meningitis each year? How
many people die as a result? Meningococcal meningitis strikes
about 3,000 Americans each year and is responsible .for approxi-
mately 300 deaths annually. It's estimated that 100 to 125 cases of
the disease occur annually on college campuses and 5 to 15 students
die as a result.
How is it spread? Many people in a population can be a car-
rier of meningococcal bacteria (up to 11%) and usually nothing hap-
pens to a person other than acquiring natural antibodies.
Meningococcal bacteria are transmitted through the air via droplets
of respiratory secretions and by direct contact with an infected per-
son. Direct contact, for these purposes, is defined as oral contact with
shared items, such as cigarettes or drinking glasses, or through inti-
mate contact such as kissing.

STATE FIRE

MARSHAL'S OFFICE

PROVIDES


FREE TRAINING FOR

VOLUNTEER

FIREFIGHTERS



VALPARAISO-Volunteer firefighters from throughout Florida
will converge this weekend in Valparaiso to get the latest training on
firefighting and investigative techniques dealing with potential man-
made and natural threats.
Chief Financial Officer Alex Sink, who also serves as State Fire
Marshal and oversees the Florida State Fire College, said the annual
Florida Volunteer Firefighter Weekend ensures Florida's volunteer
firefighters have access to regular training to help them better protect
their communities andi themselves. The event begins on Friday,
September 28, 2007, and continues through Sunday, September 30,
2007.Most events will be held at Lewis Middle School, 281
Mississippi Ave., in Valparaiso, just outside the East Gate to Eglin Air
Force Base.
"Our goal is to protect the lives of Floridians, especially our fire-
fighters who work hard to protect our families, homes and communi-
ties," said CFO Sink. "We do all that we can to make sure they get
back to the firehouse and their families safely after every call."
Classes will be offered in Emergency Vehicle Operations,
Calling the Mayday, Search & Rescue Techniques, Firefighter Safety,
and a host of other subjects. For a complete list see www.nwflvolun-
teerffweekend.com. Best photo opportunities will be late Saturday
morning and Saturday afternoon.
This free training is made available through the cooperation of
local fire departments, the Florida State Fire College, and the Florida
Fire and Emergency Services Foundation.


What are the symptoms? The early symptoms include high
fever, severe headache, stiff neck, rash, nausea, vomiting and lethar-
gy, and may resemble the flu. Because the disease progresses rapid-
ly, often in as little as 12 hours, prompt diagnosis and treatment are
important to assuring recovery.
Who is at risk? Recent evidence indicates that college stu-
dents residing on campus in dormitories or residence halls appear to
be at higher risk than college students overall. Further research
recently released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
(CDC) shows freshmen living in dormitories have a sixfold increased
risk for meningococcal meningitis than college students overall.
Although anyone can be a carrier of the bacteria that causes
meningococcal meningitis, data indicate certain social behaviors,
such as exposure to passive and active smoking, bar patronage and
excessive alcohol consumption, may put college students at
increased risk for the disease. Patients with respiratory infections,
compromised immunity, those in close contact to a known case and
travelers to endemic areas of the world are also at increased risk.
Cases and outbreaks usually occur in the late winter and early spring
when school is in session.
Is this considered an "outbreak?" An outbreak is considered
to have occurred when 10 cases of the same serotype have occurred
in 100,000 people with at least three occurring within three months.

r IUiU I.
The Green Iguana or Iguana Iguana whose numbers have grown out of control.


number GAINESVILLE Health and safety risks from non-
siting the
.pinellas- native iguanas in south Florida have prompted a
fied time University of Florida researcher and his team to recom-

mend widespread use of artificial nest boxes to control
/CPRPB the reptiles' population growth.
chasing Homeowners and property managers have grown
092818 weary of green iguanas eating shrubs and damaging
foundations and seawalls with subterranean nests and
IAL tunnels. The 3- to 5-foot-long lizards also create human

health risks by defecating in swimming pools and on
sidewalks, docks and moored boats, and endanger drivers
when crossing or basking on roads.
The nest boxes are designed to humanely capture the
troublesome lizards and their eggs, said Florida Museum
S22, of Natural History herpetologist Kenneth Krysko, lead
uit Court author of a study published in.the September edition of
address of
'e names Iguana: Conservation, Natural History and Husbandry of

OF THE Caribbean Islands.
ICATER "Extensive use of artificial nest boxes by private
property owners and land managers could potentially
ag uvnna make a big dent in their population," Krysko said.
ir claims The study recommends the nest boxes in addition to,
ER THE
CE. traditional capture methods such as live traps, snares and
)REVER nooses, and also advises south Florida residents to "plant

FORTH vegetation that lacks showy flowers and colorful fruit,"
MORE because such ornamentals are preferred iguana food.
mbr 20, "People are just frustrated, having to wrap wire net-
ting around their hibiscus and ornamentals, keeping their
gntson plants in jail so to speak," said Kim Gabel, a Monroe
reet N.E. County environmental horticulture extension agent who
, Florda also said she receives several calls a month from resi-

dents trying to figure out what to do about their yards.
Wild green iguanas were first found in Miami-Dade
County in 1964. They were later documented in Collier
(1998), Lee (2000), Monroe (2001), Palm Beach (2003)
and Broward counties. Between 1992 and 2006,

Krysko's team compiled 3,169 photographs and speci-
mens of green iguanas in these counties.
Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission biologist and
study co-author Kevin Enge said he was contacted by the
Florida Keys Invasive Exotics Task Force in 2003, when
Sthe group was concerned with green iguana impacts in
their area. He suggested the possibility of creating artifi-
cial nest mounds to capture iguana eggs as a control
method in areas where suitable nesting habitat was limit-
nistrative ed because of underlying'limestone.

MARTINEZ INTRODUCES

nistrative RECREATIONAL BOATING ACT
A by con-
Counsel, Effort seeks to exempt recreational boats
in #C65, from onerous EPA permit process

above by WASHINGTON Senator Mel Martinez (R-FL) this
lngint wor week introduced the Recreational Boating Act of 2007, a
ng in for-
bill to exempt recreational boat owners from having to
tis per- secure a Clean Water Act permit for the normal operation
his notice of their boats. The measure is in response to a recent
955-addr court ruling directing the Environmental Protection
e. Agency (EPA) to create, manage, and actively monitor a
091417 Clean Water Act permit system that would affect more

'than 13 million recreational boaters in the U.S.
"Requiring family boaters to secure a Clean Water
Act permit so that they can wash their boat, fish, or go
our waterskiing is ridiculous," Martinez said. "This permit
requirement is unnecessary and onerous. If allowed to
take effect, it will be costly and essentially unenforce-
able."
For more than 30 years, recreational vessels have
been exempted from National Pollutant Discharge
Elimination System permits for discharges deemed nor-
mal to the operation of vessels. Recently, in an attempt to
regulate ballast water discharges from large commercial
vessels, a U.S. District Court ordered that recreational
boaters also obtain a Clean Water Act permit. The Court
also directed the EPA to create regulations governing


December to May to remove eggs, and year-round'to
catch both juveniles and adults. They also may be used
for spiny-tailed iguanas, another type of large, non-native
lizard in Florida."
One adult iguana can lay between 10 and 70 eggs per
year, Krysko said.
"If a landowner is squeamish about euthanizing the
lizards, then an iguanas' tendency to reuse a nest site in
subsequent breeding seasons may increase the box's effi-
ciency at capturing eggs, and helping to control popula-
tion growth that way," Krysko said.
Green iguanas likely became established in south
Florida due to a combination of mild weather and people
releasing, protecting and feeding them. Releasing a cap-
tured non-native species is illegal, so those who use the
artificial nest boxes are responsible for euthanizing the
iguanas. The FWC approves of several methods, inclid-
ing freezing the reptile or having a veterinarian perform
lethal injection.
The study's authors recommend a simple nest-box
design: a 6-inch diameter pipe about 2 feet long leading
below ground to a 15-by-8-by-4-inch chamber and a'lid
permitting above-ground access and monitoring. The box
can be constructed from plastic, rubber or fiberglass to be
lightweight, moveable and reusable.
"The biggest, obstacle to overcome with iguanas is
public education because people don't realize they are
introduced and not native," said co-author Ellen Donlan
of the South Florida Water Management District.
An independent scientist said he is eager to see how
well the nest boxes work.
"The historical background for the green iguana
invasion of Florida' is interesting and the descrnpiion 'of
the problem itself is valuable," said Gregory Watkidis-
Colwell, a senior museum assistant in the division of ver-
tebrate zoology at the Yale Peabody Museum of Natuial
History. "I suspect it will not only be a valuable tool for
controlling the invasive populations of iguanas in the
Florida Keys, but also in other areas of Florida whdre
high density of introduced fire ants may limit the avail-
able nest sites."
According to the study, green iguanas' largely plaiit-
based diet, combined with their 5.6-square-mile territory,
make them potentially significant seed-dispersers for
non-native plants further complicating the enmeshed
ecological web of non-native and native species in the
region. Juvenile green iguanas eat insects, bird eggs, tree
snails, carrion, vegetative shoots, leaves, blossoms and
fruit whereas adults feed mostly on plants and flowers.
Potential predators of green iguanas are raccoons, spot-
ted skunks, fish crow, black and turkey vultures, feral
pigs and domestic dogs.
"Don't forget, green iguanas are also good to eat,"
Krysko said. "There are a lot of good recipes floathig
around on the Internet for iguana entrees." Krysko cau-
tioned that although non-indigenous species have no pro-
tection status in our state, they must be killed humanely.
He also said people should be mindful to not trespass'or
collect them from a national or state park.

recreational vessels by September 2008.
"The proposed permit system would hit Floridians
hard. Our state has more than 1 million recreatioAal
boats. Mobilizing the EPA to take on this needless task
would be a tremendous waste of resources," Martinez
concluded. "The court's order is a solution in search of a
problem and I'm hopeful we can head it off before it
takes effect."
The EPA has appealed the U.S. District Court for
Northern California's ruling in the 9th Circuit Court of
Appeals but should the EPA lose the case, millions 'of
boaters will have to apply for a Clean Water Act permit
simply to operate their boat. According to the EPA, "the
universe of potentially affected vessels could include
over 13 million recreational boats."
The Martinez exemption would cover normal, non-
pollutant discharges such as bilge water, deck runoff, and
engine cooling water. The exemption would not remove
or rollback environmental protections that currently pre-
vent garbage, sewage, oil, or fuel pollutants from being
discharged from a recreational vessel.

(S.2067) are senators Richard Burr (R-NC), Trent Lott
(R-MS), Elizabeth Dole (R-NC), Jim Bunning (R-KY),
Johnny Isakson (R-GA), and John Cornyn (R-TX).
Companion legislation has already been introduced in the
House of Representatives by U.S. Reps. Gene Taylor (D-
MS) and Candice Miller (R-MI).

Criminal Label Closes Doors, Felons Likely to Re-offend FAA Reauthorization


By Libby Fairhurst/FSU
A convicted felon sentenced e
to probation for a violent, proper- i. .
ty or drug felony is more likely to
re-offend within two years if he
'o she leaves court with an offi-
cial "convicted felon" label and
its barriers to employment and
ciil rights, according to a land-
ifiark study of nearly 96,000 pro- .
b*ationers by Florida State
-University criminologists.
Comprising the first-ever
analysis of the effects of a felony photo provided
convict label, or lack thereof, on Dr. Ted Chiricos, the William
recidivism (re-conviction) Julius Wilson Professor of
among adult offenders, the FSU Criminology at FSU.
research is described in a paper published in the just-released August
edition of the journal "Criminology."
-g Those findings from FSU's College of Criminology and
iminal Justice are expected to resonate across the state of Florida,
:where the law gives judges the discretion to withhold adjudication of
giilt-and with it the label-for convicted felons sentenced to pro-
'bation.
"When Florida judges withhold adjudication of guilt, as they
have in about half of such cases in recent years, probationers lawful-
ly avoid the convicted felon label for that offense, preserving both
,their civil rights and the ability to pursue employment and other
,legitimate activities without impediment," said Ted Chiricos, the
.William Julius Wilson Professor of Criminology at FSU. Chiricos is
the lead author of the paper, "The Labeling of Convicted Felons and
..Its Consequences' for Recidivism," which is co-authored by FSU
Associate Professor of criminology William Bales and two recent
.,recipients of doctoral degrees in criminology from FSU.
While probationers formally labeled as convicted felons re-
offend at higher rates-regardless of race, sex or prior convictions-
than those not labeled, the study found that recidivism rates are even
higher among those who are labeled and white, compared to labeled
talacks or Hispanics; labeled and older than 30 when first convicted
comparedd to labeled younger offenders with prior convictions before
age 30; and for labeled women as opposed to labeled men.
"Our research demonstrates empirically that harsher sanctions
,,e actually counterproductive in terms of making recidivism-and
ie victim, social and economic costs associated with it-more like-
.Y," Chiricos said.


HSUS Asks Drivers To

'Be "Deer-Aware"

Fall is Approaching, When Car-Deer Collisions
Peak
While it's still warm across much of the country, fall is almost
upon us and The Humane Society of the United States wants to
,t mind all drivers to slow down, be aware of wildlife activity, and be
especially conscious of deer.
,. You have reason to b1e vigilant, because this is mating season
SAhen dci crashes can mor f than double. Deer h tend to move more
during their rating season, which.runs .from mid-September to
December, because they've one thing on their minds and, no, it's not
,yOu in an oncoming car. In mountainous areas, mating movements
,,re compounded as deer tend to migrate to lower ground in the fall,
descendingg into valleys where it is easier to find a meal, and a mate
,for that matter.
During the fall season, drivers have less daylight in the evening
hours, while wildlife is more active, and that can be a potentially fatal
combination. There are an estimated 1.5 million crashes involving
deer and vehicles every year, with over 200 human fatalities and
,29,000 human injuries annually.
SThe most dangerous time of day is dawn and dusk when visibil-
ijy is limited and deer blend in surprisingly well.
According to Susan Hagood, wildlife issues specialist for The
i; DiSUS, "Deer-car collisions occur frequently from October to
.December. The peak of mating season, combined with commuters
d giving home in the dark, results in more collisions. There are also
i.Tore cars on our roads every year and, unfortunately, they are often
driving at higher speeds."
"The deer population," she explains, "continues to grow while
,yburban habitats encroach upon rural environments, leaving deer lit-
tle land left to roam. Therefore, they really have no choice but to
.,cross our roads."
Accidents of this nature can often be avoided. The HSUS offers
,some tips for reducing your chances of having a deer collision:
One deer often means more deer, as they frequently travel in
,groups. Where one deer crosses the road, there might be others wait-
,ng to cross. Slow down after the first crossing and watch for others
that may dash into the road.
Deer also tend to collect in the same places over time. If you see
deer along the road, that should alert you to the likelihood that there
will be deer in that place in the future.
Most animal-vehicle collisions occur on two-lane roads bordered
by natural habitat. Be cautious in these areas throughout the day.
Slow down when approaching deer standing near the roadside, as
.they may bolt at the last minute when a car comes closer, often run-
,ing into the road.
Don't tailgate. You may hit an animal that the car in front of you
managed to avoid.
Use your bright lights when you can, and turn down your dash-
board lights to better enable you to see the reflection of your head-
,,lights in the eyes of deer in or near the road.

The research offers ample evidence to support that contention.
Its analysis of labeling effects examined the recidivism experience of
95,919 persons (71,548 men and 24,371 women) sentenced to pro-
bation in Florida courts between 2000 and 2002 after a guilty verdict
or plea for a violent property or drug felony. Judges had withheld
adjudication in about 60 percent of the sample; the balance had adju-
dication formally applied, which served to certify the felony convict
label. The study looked only at the number of probationers who com-
mitted new offenses within two years of completing their original
sentence, not at technical violations of the terms of probation.
During the two-year follow-up period, 19 percent of the total
sample-including both labeled and unlabeled felony probationers-
re-offended. However, adjudication of guilt increased the odds of
recidivism for women by 19 percent compared to men, and for
whites by 16 percent compared to minority offenders.
Chiricos noted that the negative effects of the stronger sanction
are especially pronounced for first-time offenders who are older as
well as for those who are white or female. Those somewhat unex-
pected findings appear indicative of the even greater toll and crimi-
nal stigma of the convicted felon label for those with what criminol-
ogy theory calls "a greater stake in conformity to societal expecta-
tions," he said.
"Based on evidence in the records of more than 95,000 individ-
uals tracked for two years, it's clear that judges who withhold adju-
dication of guilt when sentencing felons to probation also are prac-
ticing good public policy," Chiricos said. "Minimizing harm when
administering justice benefits both the offender and the community
to which he or she returns."
In addition to Chiricos and Bales, co-authors of the FSU College
of Criminology and Criminal paper are recent FSU Ph.D. recipients
Kelle Barrick, currently a research analyst in the college's Center for
Criminology and Public Policy, and Stephanie Bontrager, now a sen-
ior research analyst at Tallahassee's Justice Research Center.
Registered users can access the FSU paper via the bnline version
of Criminology's August 2007 edition at www.blackwell-
synergy.com/toc/crim/45/3.
"We hope this study serves to better inform policy and its prac-
titioners in this critical area," Chiricos said. "After all, anyone found
guilty of a felony and sentenced to probation has already experienced
a clear expression of disapproval from his or her community, but
when the added sanction of labeling is avoided, they can still re-enter
and participate in that community of law-abiding citizens. If labeling
makes participation more difficult or impossible, probationers are
significantly more likely to gravitate back to criminal associations
and activities, and ultimately we will all pay the price."


Working Hard or Hardly

Working?
By Barry Ray


FSU researcher studies effects of job
simplification on productivity
Outsourcing. Offshoring. Compartmentalizing. More than cor-
porate buzzwords, these trends are redefining the nature of work for
millions of Americans, as well as their counterparts all over the
,world. But what are the ramifications of these trends for the people
who actually do the work?
That's a question that Stephen E. Humphrey, an assistant profes-
sor of management at Florida State University, poses in a new study
published in the Journal of Applied Psychology. Titled "Integrating
Motivational, Social, and Contextual Work Design Features: A Meta-
Analytic Summary and Theoretical Extension of the Work Design
Literature," the study indicates that various efforts to increase effi-
ciency by simplifying workers' job responsibilities may in fact be
leading to lower employee job satisfaction and productivity over
time.
"In a globally competitive marketplace, companies are trying to
introduce efficiencies wherever they can to improve their financial
performance for stockholders," Humphrey said. "One way they do
that is by designing, or redesigning, jobs to make them more narrow-
ly focused on specific tasks. However, while this may improve pro-
ductivity in the short term, it appears to create a new set of problems
in the longer term."
Humphrey collaborated on the study with Frederick P.
Morgeson, a professor of management at Michigan State University,
and Jennifer D. Nahrgang, a doctoral student at Michigan State. In
conducting their study, the three summarized the results of more than
40 years of earlier research, comprising 259 studies and almost
220,000 workers, to analyze the effects of work design on employee
attitudes and productivity. They noted several important findings.
Among them:
Simplifying tasks generally led to lower performance ratings and
worker satisfaction.
Having more autonomy on the job was related to better perform-
ance, higher satisfaction, and lower feelings of exhaustion.
Having a socially supportive workplace was related to greater
job satisfaction, lower feelings of exhaustion, and strongly reduced
the likelihood of wanting to leave the job.
People who work interdependently with others have better per-
formance ratings, lower stress, lower turnover intentions, and greater
work and organizational satisfaction.
Receiving frequent feedback from others increased job satisfac-
tion, reduced stress and turnover intentions, and increased perform-
ance.
"The results of this research clearly show that organizations
which focus on providing job flexibility, opportunities for social
interaction and performance feedback can produce highly perform-
ing, highly satisfied workers who have low levels of stress, anxiety
and burnout, and who are uninterested in searching for 'greener pas-
tures,'" Humphrey said. "However, organizations that move toward
the simplification and independent completion of work will find that
workers will be dissatisfied with their work and will perform at a
lower level over time, with higher levels of stress."
Unfortunately, that seems to be the direction that workplace
design is headed.
"We're seeing many job functions that American workers used to
do-computer programming, data entry and call center operations,


for example-being sent overseas or contracted out to other U.S.
companies that specialize in those areas. The employees who used to
perform these tasks often find themselves either out of a job or in one
that is less challenging and less fulfilling."
For corporate America, the costs of a demoralized work force,
measured in decreased productivity and increased turnover, may off-
set many of the cost savings that they had been hoping to achieve,
Humphrey added.


members to override the veto. Both Nelson and Martinez have
vowed to work to overturn a veto.
"This long-awaited water bill is good news for the Glades.
These projects are vital to restoring the River of Grass ," said Nelson.
"The president's expected veto will only delay the restoration of this
global treasure and I'm committed to doing everything I can to over-
turn it."
"No single bill Congress approves will have as much positive
impact on Florida's environment than this," said Martinez. "This bill
is essential to the vitality of Florida 's ecosystem and the manage-
ment of water quality issues. On Everglades restoration, this bill
brings the federal government back to the table as an equal partner."


Act Out of Committee

Washington, D.C. As a member of the powerful House Rules
Committee, U.S. Representative Kathy Castor, today moved the
Federal Aviation Administration Reauthorization Act of 2007 out of
committee and onto the House floor for consideration by the full
House tomorrow.
"Air travel is at the heart of the Tampa Bay area's dynamic busi-
ness and tourism economy. It is necessary that our country invest in
an improved air traffic control system to tackle traffic delays and pro-
vide for air traffic control modernization and safety. This in turn will
bolster our national security and economic development."
"Tampa International Airport is one of the more business and
family-friendly airports in the nation," Castor continued. "Last year,
it received the Excellence in Airport Efficiency Award, and it was
recently chosen as America's favorite airport by JD Power and
Associates. We are proud of our airport. It is an important economic
hub and today I am proud to support vital improvements to one of
America's greatest airports."
The FAA Reauthorization Act of 2007 authorizes appropriations
for the Federal Aviation Administration for fiscal years 2008 through
2011 with investments in aviation safety and capacity improvements.
The bill:
-Accelerates the implementation of the Next Generation Air
Transportation System (NextGen), which is the FAA's plan to mod-
ernize the national air transport system including movement away
from ground-based technologies and toward satellite-based technolo-
gy;
-Increases the number of aviation safety inspectors;
-Requires airlines and airports to have emergency contingency
plans in place to take care of passengers that are involved in long
flight and tarmac delays.
"Modernizing our air transportation system is a national priori-
ty," said Castor. "The Department of Transportation predicts up to a
tripling of passengers, operations and cargo by 2025, which will
require massive capacity-enhancing improvements and air traffic
control modernization at our nation's airports. This bill accelerates
the implementation of the NextGen program, which will update and
transform the air traffic control system so that it will be able to han-
dle higher volume of flights."
According to the Department of Transportation, only 72.5 per-
cent of domestic flights by the 20 largest U.S. airlines arrived on-time
in the first four months of this year -the worst showing since the
Department began reporting delays more than ten years ago.
"With the FAA Reauthorization Act, we are taking action to
decrease the delays which have gone from being an occasional hassle
to a constant inconvenience to airline passengers," Castor continued.
"The bill will allow the FAA to replace and repair existing facilities
and equipment to prevent outages or other equipment failures that
cause delays."


FSU Medical Ranks #2 for

Family Medicine Graduates



By Doug Carlson
The Florida State University College of Medicine is ranked sec-
ond in the nation for the percentage of its graduating doctors who
choose to specialize in family medicine, according to the American
Academy of Family Physicians.
Over a three-year period, 19 percent of FSU College of Medicine
graduates have entered family medicine residencies, trailing only the
University Of Kansas School Of Medicine (22 percent). No other
medical school in Florida rated in the top 50. The AAFP tracks the
success of U.S. allopathic and osteopathic medical schools in pro-
ducing doctors who select family medicine residencies, and the jour-
nal Family Medicine publishes the results annually.
In addition to its three-year success, FSU tied Marshall
University among U.S. medical schools with the largest percentage of
graduates (22.2 percent) entering family medicine residency pro-
grams over the past year.
This is the first time the FSU College of Medicine, which grad-
uated its first class in 2005, has been eligible for inclusion. Part of the
college's mission is to answer the call for more primary care physi-
cians in Florida, where there is an increasing shortage, especially in
rural areas. Florida will need an additional 12,000 primary care
physicians by 2020 due to population growth and ongoing changes in
the state's physician workforce, according to an AAFP study..
Nationally, the number of medical school graduates choosing
family medicine has declined in recent years. Reasons cited range
from lifestyle preferences and steadily declining Medicare and
Medicaid reimbursement rates to increasing student debt and better
income opportunities and more control of work hours in other spe-
cialties.



Senate Finally


Passes Everglade


Improvement Bill

The U.S. Senate passed the final version of the water bill
approving funds for nearly $1.8 billion in projects to restore the
Everglades This legislation has been stalled since 2002, meaning
little to no money has been approved for water projects since the last
water bill in 2000. Both of Florida's U.S. Sens. Bill Nelson and Mel
Martinez have championed the legislation, calling on colleagues to
support passage of the bill. -
Having both House and Senate approval, the water resources
development act now moves to the president's desk for signature.
But, President Bush has threatened to veto the water bill, forcing the
Senate and House of Representatives to each come up with 2/3 of its

Biologists Close In On


Mystery of Sea Turtles'


'lost years'


GAINESVILLE, Fla. Biologists have found a major clue in a
50-year-old mystery about what happens to green sea turtles after
they crawl out of their sandy nests and vanish into the surf, only to
reappear several years later relatively close to shore.
In a paper set to appear Wednesday in the online edition of the
journal Biology Letters, three University of Florida sea turtle scien-
tists say they found the clue by analyzing chemical elements
ingrained in the turtles' shells. Their conclusion: The turtles spend
their first three to five "lost years" in the open ocean, feeding on jel-
lyfish and other creatures as carnivores. Only after this period do they
move closer to shore and switch to a vegetarian diet of sea grass the
period in their lives when they have long been observed and studied.
"This has been a really intriguing and embarrassing problem for
sea turtle biologists, because so many green turtle hatchlings enter the
ocean, and we haven't known where they go," said Karen Bjorndal, a
professor of zoology and director of UF's Archie Carr Center for Sea
Turtle Research. "Now, while I can't go to a map and point at the
spot, at least we know their habitats and diets, and that will guide us
where to look."
The discovery is important not only because it's a first, but also
because it may aid in conservation of the turtles which, like all sea
turtles, are classified as endangered. "You can't protect something,"
said Bjomdal, "if you don't know where it is."
The paper's lead author is Kimberly Reich, a UF doctoral student
in zoology who did the work as part of her dissertation research. The
other authors are Bjordal and Alan Bolten, a faculty member in
zoology and associate director of the sea turtle center.
Famed sea turtle biologist Archie Carr first discussed the mys-
tery of the green sea turtles' "lost years" in his 1952 book, "The
Handbook of Turtles." Half-dollar sized hatchlings trundle off sub-
tropical and tropical beaches worldwide, then vanish, only to reap-
pear, dinner-plate-sized, over continental shelves in depths of less
than 650 feet. Only a tiny number of green turtles between the half-
dollar and plate-sizes have ever been spotted.
To solve the problem, Reich, Bjorndal and Bolten turned not to
scouring the ocean but rather to a technique that over the past two
decades has become increasingly important in questions related to
ecological origin: stable isotope analysis.
The higher an animal on the food chain, the more heavy isotopes
it accumulates. As a result, the technique, which measures the ratios
of heavy to light isotopes, can distinguish samples from herbivorous
versus carnivorous creatures and where on the food chain they lie.
The researchers captured 44 turtles off a long-term study site
near Great Inagua in the Bahamas. The sample included 28 that had
been tagged in previous years, indicating they were residents of the
site, and 16 untagged turtles assumed to have recently arrived.
They cut off tiny pieces near the center of the turtles' shells in a
harmless process that Bjorndal likened to trimming one's fingernails.
The biologists used a mass spectrometer, a machine that separates
isotopes according to charge and mass, to analyze the oldest, or ear-
liest-grown, portions of the shell sample versus the newest portions.
The analysis revealed that with the new arrivals to the site, the
ratio of light to heavy nitrogen isotopes in the older versus new shell
samples was "significantly different," as the paper said. The ratios
were very similar to ratios observed in oceanic-stage loggerhead tur-
tles known to be carnivorous. For these reasons, among others, the
researchers concluded the turtles spend their first three to five. years
in the open ocean.
Green turtles nest on subtropical and tropical beaches world-
wide. That suggests the young turtles are widely distributed in the
oceans during their oceanic stage, but Bjorndal said further study is
required to confirm that.
Green turtles are the ocean's largest hard-shelled turtle, with
only soft-shelled leatherbacks eclipsing their size. They were heavily
exploited for food by native peoples and then by explorers and
colonists who prized the animals for remaining alive and fresh for
months on ships. Although they were among the first animals listed
under, the Endangered Species Act in 1973, they and their eggs con-
tinue to be hunted in much of their range today.
Said Bjorndal, "Anything that helps us discover geographically
where they are is going to stand us in good stead to be able to protect
them."
