TAX TALKS

Legislators say the rush

is on to get deal done

for January's election

Jarod Buchanan, 22, of Brandon, shops in the. USF bookstore on the Tampa campus. Buchanan, a criminology major, said he was looking for
a shirt for his mother. He's one of many fans who have purchased Bulls memorabilia as the school's football team climbs in the rankings.

Pinellas News Staff Report
ST. PETERSBURG State
legislators, in special session in
Tallahassee to craft property-tax
relief legislation, have until the
end of October to get a proposal
on the January primary ballot.
The Pinellas News asked
several legislators for their take
on the proposal, which was bro-
kered by Gov. Charlie Crist and
later given a couple of dramatic
changes in the House.
State Sen. Mike Fasano, R-
New Port Richey, said he sup-
ports relief for every property
owner in Florida, but that "to get
something changed, it must be
done via the state constitution,
and do that we need a super
majority of members of both
Florida House and Florida
Senate to pass the joint resolu-
tion."
He said both parties in the
Legislature need to work cooper-

Florida's senators are
deliberating. Page 2

atively to get the proposal to a
popular vote. "That is why our
proposal thus far is limited," he
added.
Sen. Charlie Justice, D-St.
Petersburg, believes it's impor-
tant to remember that small busi-
nesses and commercial-property
owners are also among those
who want tax relief.
"It is essential that we keep
their needs in mind when draft-
ing legislation and make sure
that we alleviate the tax burden
they have to bare under the cur-
rent system," Justice said. "It is
also important that the
Legislature protects education

ST. PETERSBURG The team's
ranked No. 2, but to their fans, the
University of South Florida Bulls football
team is No. 1 at least, judging by sales of
Bulls merchandise.
USF bookstores and local retailers are
restocking the shelves as quickly as the
team is moving up the BCS ranks.
The Bulls are ranked No. 2 in the lat-
est Associated Press and Bowl
Championship Series polls, and fans are
all over it.
"Fans are very enthusiastic," USF
Tampa bookstore General Manager Grace


McQueen said, "and they are showing
pride through the merchandise they want
to wear."
Sports Authority on Tyrone Boulevard
only had a couple of Bulls shirts at the start
of the season. A few letters to corporate
from angry shoppers quickly fixed that.
"We only had a few different T-shirts
in August, but now we have polos, fitted
hats and women's apparel," Footwear
Manager Robert Neighbor said.
Retail stores got the biggest wake-up
call the day before the game against West
Virginia University. People were coming
in on lunch breaks, after work and grab-
bing the last few game day items leaving
shelves and racks bare.


Sports Fan-Attic in Tyrone Square
Mall gets larger shipments than it got at
the start of the season.
"There's been a huge change in what
corporate sends us," Assistant Manager
Jeremy Socha said. "They want-it all out -
there is no back stock."
So where does the profit go?
Collegiate Licensing Co., which
licenses manufacturers to sell USF mer-
chandise, stipulates an 8 percent royalty
fee which the school receives. In addition
to USF, CLC licenses most major colleges'
logos for merchandising.

'Save Our Homes' may get portability under proposal


and makes sure that any funding
sources affected are replen-
ished."
He added that to stabilize
the state's economy, legislators
need to ensure they don't
increase tax inequities.
Fasano, who sits on the
Senate's fiscal policy committee,
said that "between property
taxes skyrocketing and insurance
premiums going through the
roof, the American Dream of
owning your home for many is
becoming only a dream."
He said that along with the
$50,000 homestead exemption,
these proposals will provide
relief:
Doubling the homestead
exemption to $50,000;
Giving low-income sen-
iors a $100,000 exemption; and
Giving first-time home
buyers an exemption equal to 25
percent of their new home's
value.
"The proposal also gives
every homesteaded property
owner who enjoys "Save Our
.Homes" portability," he said.
Under the portability pro-
posal, homestead-property own-
ers may transfer their Save Our
Home differential to a new
.homestead.
"These provisions will go
along way in helping those fam-


ilies that want to downsize but
cannot afford to pay the taxes on
the home they want to purchase,"
Fasano said.
Florida House Rep. Peter
Nehr, R-Tarpon Springs, said the
proposal continues previous
efforts to reduce the property-tax
burden.
"One of main problems is that
over the last 5-6 years, local gov-
ernments have raised their tax rev-
enues by approximately 100 per-
cent," he said. "During a previous
Legislative session this year we
passed statutory laws that were
designed to lower property taxes
collected by local governments by
freezing rates to 2006 rates and
also rolling back revenues....
yet many of these local govern-
ments have voted by a super
majority to pierce or 'break' these
requests to lower property taxes in
their jurisdictions."
Despite those decisions to
keep taxes high, he said, total
2007 property taxes collected by
local governments across the
state will decrease by more than
$2 billion. .
Nehr added that local-gov-
ernment property taxes grew
about 18.5 percent for 2006, but
for 2007, were reduced a little
more than 1 percent over the pre-
vious year.
"In my opinion," he said,


"property taxes are much too
high and are outpacing the abili-
ty of people to pay them."
He cited foreclosure rates
across the state in Osceola
County, for every home sold,
three are in foreclosure, and in
the seven-county central Florida
region, there are more than
11,000 homes in mortgage
default.
"The new constitutional tax
amendment that will more than
likely be passed this session is
far from perfect," he said. "If I
could get the votes, I would
include some version of a 'Save
Our Homes' provision that
would cap the assessment of all
Florida property, give relief to
non-homestead properties and
also pass a statutory law that
would ensure that more of the
tax burden is not just shifted to
non-homestead properties and
businesses."
Nehr agreed with Fasano
that a supermajority in the
Legislature would be required to
make that sort of change.
"Unfortunately it would not
get the needed votes and we
would see no tax relief at all, for
anyone," he said. "Our proposed
plan, which by the way holds
education almost completely
harmless, is just a start in a series
of'steps to reduce taxes."


The Senate proposal

Here's the entire State Senate property tax cut
proposal, supplied by Sen. Mike Fasano. Some
provisions are by bill, while others are by a
Senate Joint Resolution (SJR).

Double Homestead Exemption (Bill and SJR)
It provides an additional $25,000 homestead
exemption. This exemption does not apply to
school taxes.
Low-Income Senior Exemption (Bill and SJR)
Anyone 65 or older whose household income is
less than $23,604 would receive a $100,000
exemption (Adjusted annually for inflation) This
provision applies to all taxes.
First-time Homebuyers Exemption (Bill and
SJR): First-time homebuyers in Florida who
qualify for homestead exemption will be eligible
for an additional exemption equal to 25 percent
of the value of their new home, with a maximum
exemption equal to 25 percent of the county
average home value. This exemption will
decrease as the home accumulates a Save Our
Homes differential. This exemption is available
to 2007 first-time homebuyers who qualify for a
homestead exemption Jan. 1,2008. This
exemption does not apply to school taxes.
Portability (Bill and SJR): Homestead property
owners will be able to transfer their Save Our
Homes differential to a new homestead within
two years of giving up their previous homestead.
If the new homestead is more valuable than the
old one the entire differential can be transferred;
if the new homestead is less valuable the
transferable differential will be proportional to


the value of the new homestead. The transferred
differential does not apply to school taxes.
Affordable Housing (Bill and SJR): It provides
that property used for rent-restricted affordable
housing will be assessed on the basis of its use
as workforce rental housing or affordable rental
housing. The restricted assessments will not
apply to school taxes.
Tangible Personal Property Exemption (Bill
and SJR): Provides a $25,000 exemption for
each tangible personal property return. This-
provision applies to all taxes.
Millage Rate Restrictions (Bill and SJR): Local
government (non-school) property tax revenues
are limited in fiscal year 2008-09 to prevent
millage rate increases that would offset
reductions in the tax roll that result from the
additional exemptions.
This does not restrict school district taxes.
Presumption of Correctness (Bill): The bill
limits a property appraiser's presumption of
correctness in an administrative or judicial action
in which a taxpayer challenges an assessment of
value of non-homestead property. If the value of
a parcel increased more than the overall
increase in value for its class of property, the
property appraiser will lose his or her
presumption of correctness.
Community Land Trusts and Affordable
Housing Owned by a Limited Partnership
(Bill): It limits the assessment of improvements
to real property owned by a community land
trust and provides a tax exemption to property
owned by a limited partnership and used to
provide affordable housing, if the sole general
partner is a not-for-profit corporation.

Building

a healthy

system

for kids
Now that President Bush
has vetoed a plan that
would have greatly
expanded the State Children's
Health Insurance Program, or
SCHIP, it's time to skip the
recriminations and get busy
crafting a compromise that actu-
ally works.
SIt's not a matter of being for
or against children getting cover-
age. Everyone's for coverage.
The problem is with doing that
solely by expanding SCHIP to
families well above the original
income threshold -- about
$40,000 for a family of four.
The program is meant for
low-income working families
without insurance, not the mid-
dle class. And expanding SCHIP
does nothing to help working
families struggling to do the
right thing and pay for coverage
through their employer. To get
any help, these families would
have to pull their child out of
their current private insurance
plan and dump them into SCHIP.
But there's a better way to
help parents keep their kids in
the family's health plan and also
aid those kids who lack insur-
ance. And this "third way," to
steal a Bill Clinton phrase, actu-
ally uses ideas from across the
.political spectrum.
In fact, last January a bipar-
tisan group called the Health
Coverage Coalition for the
Uninsured basically promoted
the kind of compromise we
need. The coalition included
such groups as the American
Medical Association, Families
.USA, AARP, the Chamber of
Commerce, the Catholic Health
Association and top insurance
and hospital associations. Sen.
Mel Martinez R-Fla., and other
lawmakers have started to design
.a similar balanced initiative.
Congress could do three
things to craft a bipartisan com-
promise based on the coalition's
approach.
First, reauthorize SCHIP by
focusing on enrolling all the kids
it was intended for. Many of
these eligiblekids just aren't
enrolled today. That means kids
in families.with an income of
200 percent of the federal pover-
ty level. That's just more than
$40,000 for a family of four, and
more for bigger families.
Congress should concentrate
on these kids, rather than
expanding SCHIP to families
earning $60,000 or more. Some
states have gained permission to
cover kids in these middle-class
families, and even some adults,
and that shouldn't be disrupted.
But lawmakers should keep
SCHIP focused on the kids it
was meant to cover.
Second, give states more
latitude to use existing federal
programs and money in more
innovative ways to expand cov-
erage, especially for children.
Bipartisan bills along these lines
have already been introduced by
House members Tammy
Baldwin, D-Wisc., and Tom
Price, R-Ga., as well as Sens.
Jeff Bingaman, D-N.M., and
George Voinovich, R-Ohio.
Third, provide a tax credit
of $1,200 for health insurance
for each child between 200 and
300 percent of poverty level.


That would be enough to enable
their families to enroll them in
family coverage at the work-
place of the main breadwinner
or in another private plan of
their choice.
The same credit would go to
families in this income range
who have already made the
financial sacrifice to enroll their
kids, not just to families with

State law mandates election officials purge inactive Pinellas voters


ST. PETERSBURG More
than 1,100 inactive Pinellas
County voters were removed
from election lists when the
county's Supervisor of Elections
completed mandatory voter list
maintenance.
State election laws mandate
that supervisors protect the
integrity of the electoral process
by ensuring the maintenance of
accurate and current voter regis-


tration records in the statewide
voter registration system. To do
that, the law provides for a
maintenance program.
The program is designed to
provide proper address updates
and find inactive voters.
Election offices update their
lists a minimum of each odd-
numbered year, no later than 90
days before any federal election.
According to state statutes,


"the supervisor must designate
as inactive all voters who have
been sent an address confirma-
tion notice and who have not
returned the postage prepaid,
preaddressed return form within
30 days or for which an address
confirmation notice has been
returned as undeliverable."
"If the voter does not update
her or her voter information,
request an absentee ballot, or vote


by second general election after
being placed on the inactive list,"
the law says, "the voter's name
shall be removed from the
statewide voter registration system
and the voter shall be required to
reregister to have his or her name
restored to the statewide voter reg-
istration system."
The next update will take
place after the Jan. 29, 2008 pri-
mary.

'Great American Teach-in' Nov. 14;


deadline approaches for volunteers


LARGO If it was a wed-
ding anniversary, it would be an
ivory event. But to the students,
teachers and volunteers who
look forward to this special day
each year, it's solid gold.
Wednesday, Nov. 14, is the
14th annual Progress Energy
Great American Teach-In in
Pinellas County Schools. The
deadline to register is Nov. 9.
Progress Energy Florida
has sponsored the Teach-In
since the inaugural year, pro-
viding printed materials, pro-
motional activities and enthu-
siastic support.
Many Progress Energy
employees volunteer, taking
with them utility vehicles and
information about their work.
Some step outside their
Progress Energy jobs and tell
students about hobbies or


other interests.
Since 1994, participants
ranging from elementary
school students to senior citi-
zens have given presentations
on.everything from art to zool-
ogy.
In those years, a total of
57,744 volunteers gave
141,174 presentations in the
more than 140 Pinellas County
public schools.
They've come in costume,
brought their equipment, put
on plays, offered potentially
life-saving information,
showed off their pets, dis-
cussed career options, shared
precious souvenirs, talked
about other parts of the world,
brought the past to life, per-
formed a song or dance,
cooked delicious meals,
stepped down from the


pedestal of celebrity to meet
students at their level or sim-
ply read a story to little ones.
The Teach-In introduces
students to career options they
might never have considered,
hobbies they might never have
discovered and activities they
might never have experienced.
Students learn from pro-
fessionals, trades people, par-
ents, community members and
other students. The annual
event enriches the students
and the volunteers alike.
In addition to elementary,
middle and high schools, there
also are dropout-prevention
programs, exceptional educa-
tion schools and secondary
schools that would love to have
more speakers.
Prospective participants
unable to attend during tradi-


tional school hours might
consider the technical educa-
tion centers or community
schools.
Brochures with registra-
tion forms are available in all
schools and at the administra-
tion building in Largo. A regis-
tration form is available at the
Pinellas County Schools Web
site, www.pcsb.org.
Forms may be returned to
any Pinellas County public
school or mailed to Kay
Masters, Pinellas County
Schools, P.O. Box 2942,
Largo, FL 33779-2942. The
registration deadline is Nov. 9.
Those wishing more infor-
mation may call the Teach-In
coordinator at any public
school or contact Masters at
588-6000, ext. 1951, or e-mail
mastersk@pcsb.org.

Probation

violation

nets man

30 years

EDITOR'S NOTE: Because of
technical difficulties, this page-
one story did not continue inside
the Oct. 12 issue. We reprint it
here in its entirety, with our
apologies.

TALLAHASSEE A
Pinellas County man was sen-
tenced to 30 years behind bars for
violating his probation.
Florida Attorney General
Bill McCollum said David L.
Jenkins, 43, was originally sen-
tenced to 15 years in prison. He
was convicted in 1994 in
Hillsborough County for scam-
ming elderly people out of their
personal assets by posing as a
dealer in fine art and commodi-
ties.
Jenkins absconded from
his probation supervisor in
2002 and was taken into cus-
tody by the U.S. Social
Security Administration in
2003.
The probation violation was
prosecuted by the Attorney
General's Office of Statewide
Prosecution.
Jenkins absconded little
more than a year after his release
from prison.
While a fugitive, he often
called or wrote letters to taunt the
Florida Department of Law
Enforcement agent who was
responsible for his arrest for the
1994 case.
The communication was
intended to taunt her with sto-
ries of Jenkins' now-lavish
lifestyle.
Eventually, Jenkins landed
in St. Louis and begun an identi-
ty theft scam that was noticed by
the Social Security
Administration. When agents
attempted to arrest Jenkins, he
assaulted the authorities and
attempted to hide in an occupied
vehicle.
Jenkins was taken into fed-
eral custody and subsequently
sentenced to nearly 5 years in
federal prison on the federal
charges.
.After Jenkins returned to
Hillsborough County from feder-
al prison, he pleaded guilty to his
violation of probation before
Judge William Fuente of the 13th
Judicial Circuit.
He was sentenced to 30
years in state prison, to be fol-
lowed by a new 10-year proba-
tion period.

Coastal Cleanup Finale Oct. 27 in Clearwater Clearwater Beach Library reopens


Local organizations seek helpers to help clean
Downtown Clearwater with the finale of Keep Pinellas
Beautiful's annual coastal cleanup.
Clearwater's Main Street program and Clearwater
Community Volunteers are working in conjunction with
Keep Pinellas Beautiful Inc to stage the Saturday, Oct.
27, event at Clearwater City Hall, 112 S. Osceola Ave.
The event begins at 8 a.m. and lasts until noon. A
limited number of T-shirts will be distributed. Light
refreshments will be available. Trash bags and litter
grabbers will be provided.
Part of a larger environmental initiative to remove
debris and litter from the nation's coastlines, Coastal
Cleanup is supported locally by eleven municipal govern-
ments and a number of commercial and public sponsors.


The Clearwater Beach Library re-opened Monday
in a new temporary location next to the Clearwater
Beach Recreation Center, 69 Bay Esplanade.
The library will remain in this temporary location
until summer 2008, when it will move into the beach
recreation center.
Construction will begin soon to expand the recre-
ation center to accommodate a permanent location for
the beach library. This merging of facilities, which is a
result of last year's Budget Task Force recommenda-
tions and recent state-mandated budget legislation, will
save the city over $100,000.
The library's new hours will be 9 a.m.-5 p.m.
Monday through Friday. For more information, contact
the beach library at (727) 462-6890.


Three-Day Breast Cancer Walk Starts Today
Tampa Bay residents gather this weekend to raise
money and walk for the cure. Each participant raised a
minimum of $2,200 and will walk an average of 20
miles a day. The walk begins today at Sand Key Park
in Clearwater for opening ceremonies and continues
until Sunday at 12:30 p.m.
Proceeds are used for research, education and
community outreach such as promoting the importance
of early detection and yearly exams. 85 percent bene-
fits the Susan G. Komen for the cure and 15 percent
will go to the National Philanthropic Trust Breat
Cancer Fund.
The public is welcome at opening and closing cer-
emonies and at all cheering stations located throughout
the walk. For more information visit www.the3day.org.

'One-book' project begins




Tuesday at Boca Ciega High


LARGO Students, staff mem-
bers, teachers and administrators at
Boca Ciega High School in Gulfport
will spend Tuesday, Oct. 23, reading
the same book together.
The "One-School, One-Book"
project is an adolescent reading initia-
tive meant to hook high school stu-
dents on the joy of reading. The proj-
ect will continue each Tuesday
through Dec. 18.
The school s Reading Leadership
Team selected the book and devel-
oped a plan for the schoolwide initia-
tive. In first period, teachers will set
the background for A Long Way
Gone: Memoirs of a Boy Soldier, a
story about child soldiers in Africa by
Ishmael Beah. In second through fifth


period, each teacher will read a cer-
tain portion of the book aloud for 10
minutes at the beginning of class. In
sixth period, students will participate
in guided writing in a reflections jour-
nal.
There is much more to the project
than just reading the book, however.
Podcasts from the author are available
on the book website, www.alongway-
gone.com, and Google Earth was used
to offer students perspective on the
involved area of Africa. Vanessa
Gezari, a St. Petersburg Times
reporter who has written about boy
soldiers in Liberia, has been to the
school twice.
She gave a presentation/slide
show about her trip to Liberia to


research the article to a group of stu-
dents, offering background informa-
tion to help them engage in the book.
She returned Oct. 11 to share her pres-
entation with the staff, and it was
taped to be shown to all students as
the reading begins.
The marquee and Connect-ED
messages were used to involve parents
in the project.
"For some students, it may be the
only book they read this year, and for
some it could be the only book they
have ever read from beginning to
end," said Principal Paula Nelson.
"Read-aloud is an excellent strategy
to hook students into learning, and
reading memoirs are a research-based
,,best practice in adolescent reading


strategies.
"Social studies teachers can take
it and run with it; English teachers can
write about it, and students can draw,
sing and create all kinds of interesting
things if inspired," she said. "The goal
is to have everyone reading during
those 10 minutes even administra-
tors and staff! The challenge will be to
stop the school for 10 minutes!!"
Referendum money was used, to
purchase the books. "Our hope is ...
to pass the entire project, along with
the books, on to another school that
would be interested in doing it. Then
we would like to start another book,"
Nelson said.

Paula Nelson, (727) 893-2780.

Pinellas traffic signals make the grade


CLEARWATER Signaling sig-
nificant improvements in traffic flow
and reduced congestion, Pinellas
County received a grade of B- in its
2007 National Traffic Signal Report
Card.
The National Transportation
Operations Coalition recently
announced the grade at a press confer-
ence in Washington, D.C.
As more vehicles take to the
highways, the top concern for Pinellas
County Florida's most densely pop-
ulated and developed county -is traf-
fic management. Since the 2005
Traffic Signal Report Card assessment

cworks



in which Pinellas County scored a D-
,low but in line with other participat-
ing U.S. municipalities, the county's
Public Works Department has been
hard at work better managing its exist-
ing roadways.
Greater resources are now pro-


vided to traffic signal operations,
which can not only decrease roadway
congestion but also improve air quali-
ty and fuel efficiency. Emerging tech-
nology applications have been imple-
mented, including Intelligent
Transportation Systems and
Advanced Traffic Managemefit
Systems (ATMS).
One recent study for this new sys-
tem operating on U.S. 19 and State
Route 60 showed a $1.3 million annu-
al savings in fuel costs for the travel-
ing public.
"Our better grade is attributed in
great part to the new ATMS system as


well as other programs we have put in
place over the past two years," said
Ken Jacobs, Pinellas County signal
operations manager. "With better traf-
fic flow mnlariemcitI'coiniiinuters aid
citizens will experience less delays
and frustrations along our roadways,
providing a better and safer drive
among the thousands of miles of
Pinellas County roads."
NTOC sent out surveys to locali-
ties across the U.S. last fall.
Responding to six key issue areas,
417 cities, counties and other jurisdic-
tions in 47 states participated, includ-
ing Pinellas County.


Game commission searches for manatee


Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission biologists
are asking for the public's help to find
a distressed manatee that is entangled
in a crab trap line with a buoy
attached.
The young adult manatee was
first spotted months ago but was last


seen Monday afternoon at Hammer
Point in Tavernier, near mile marker
92.
The entanglement is cutting into
its left flipper, which could cause
infection, amputation or death.
Officers, biologists and volunteers
from the FWC and Dolphin Research


Center are searching desperately for
the animal.
"The manatee is very skittish, so
we are asking the public to call the
FWC's Wildlife Alert Hotline toll-free
at (888) 404-3922 if they spot it," said
manatee biologist Christy Hudak.
"They should not try to catch it or dis-


entangle it. Just call us and keep an
eye on it."
Entanglements are an ongoing
problem.
FWC biologists are aware of
approximately five entangled mana-
tees in the waters off the Florida
Keys.


Workplace Woe: Abusive Bosses or Inferior


TALLAHASSEE Considerable
attention, both in blogs and in popular
media, has been given to abusive
bosses over the past few years. Less
discussed are employees' responses to
such behavior. How do employees
react to abusive supervisors? Do they
simply take what is dished out, or do
they actively seek to change the situa-
tion?
Research recently conducted by
Wayne Hochwarter, professor of man-
agement at Florida State University,
and research associate Samantha
Engelhardt sought to answer those
questions by examining the responses
of more than 180 employees from a
wide variety of professions who
reported supervisor abuse.
"Our goal was to isolate those
who reported daily abuse from those
who did not," Hochwarter said.
The differences between the two
groups are staggering:


On the Web
For more information:
www.fsu.edu/news/2006/12/04/
bad.boss


Thirty percent of those who
reported abuse slowed down or pur-
posely made errors, compared with 6
percent of those not reporting abuse.
Twenty-seven percent of those
who reported abuse purposely hid
from the boss, compared with 4 per-
cent of those not reporting abuse.
Thirty-three percent of those who
reported abuse confessed to not put-
ting in maximum effort, compared
with 9 percent of those not reporting
abuse.
Twenty-nine percent of those
who reported abuse took sick time off
even when not ill, compared with 5
percent of those not reporting abuse.


Twenty-five percent of those who
reported abuse took more or longer
breaks, compared with 7 percent of
those not reporting abuse.
Hochwarter and Engelhardt also
found that those not reporting abuse
were three times more likely to proac-
tively fix problems, including per-
ceived abuse, than those who reported
mistreatment.
"The data do not allow us to
definitively state if abuse leads to
these reactions, or if managers are just
responding to their subordinates' less-
than-stellar behavior," Hochwarter
said. "However, it is clear that
employee-employer relations are at
one of the lowest points in history."
Hochwarter suggested that basic
civility, including a commitment to
active communication, may cure
many workplace problems.
"Without communication, there
can be no trust," he said. "And without


trust, you're going to have your share
of employee-manager problems."
Hochwarter and Engelhardt's
research, which is being prepared for
publication, follows a 2006 study con-
ducted by Hochwarter and two FSU
doctoral students. In that study, the
researchers examined the problem, of
abusive bosses and documented their
effects on employee health and job
performance.
"Employees stuck in an abusive
relationship experienced more
exhaustion, job tension, nervous-
ness, depressed mood and mistrust,"
Hochwarter said of the 2006
research. "They also were less likely
to take on additional tasks, such as
working longer or on weekends, and
were generally less satisfied with
their job. Also, employees were
more likely to leave if involved in an
abusive relationship than if dissatis-
fied with pay."

Despite economy, we plan to shop more


Holiday sales expected

to rise, survey shows


By CATHY KEEN
University of Florida

GAINESVILLE The
approaching holidays may be
merrier than expected for retail-
ers. Despite a troubled housing
market and higher gas prices,
Florida consumers say they
intend to spend more this season
than they did last year, a new


University of Florida survey
shows.
"Many retailers fear that
this holiday season's sales will
be the worst in five years" said
Barton Weitz, executive director
of UF's Miller Center for
Retailing Education and
Research. "But while our survey
shows that people with lower
incomes plan to spend less, those


with higher incomes expect to
spend more, which makes the
overall effect positive."
Floridians estimate they will
spend an average of $1,325 dur-
ing the 2007 holiday season.
based on a telephone survey of
525 state residents during
September. About 73 percent
said they plan to spend the same
or more this year. When asked
the same question last year in a
similar survey, only 62 percent
indicated they would be spend-
ing the same or more than the
previous year.


"One reason they gave for
spending more is they are buy-
ing these high-tech games and
toys that cost more," Weitz said.
"It's. not that they're buying
more things, it's that the things
they want to buy are more
expensive."
Consumers also said they
have a greater number of family
members to buy for this year and
they simply have more money to
spend, he said.
Families expecting to spend
less this holiday season reported
they either had less income from


losing a job or working fewer
hours or they had more expenses
from higher utility bills or taxes,
Weitz said.
Higher income consumers
- those with annual household
incomes of more than $60,000 -
indicate they are likely to spend
slightly more than $1,900, while
those from households that make
less than $60,000 are inclined to
spend $890, he said.
Weitz said the income dif-
ferences were not apparent in
last year's survey. "We do know
there has been this general


widening of the income gap
between the haves and the have-
nots that has been going on for
quite awhile," he said.
Of those from higher
income households, 81 percent
plan to spend the same or more
this holiday season compared to
last season, but only 67 percent
of residents from lower income
households intend to spend the
same or more, he said.
Those in the lowest earning
group with household
incomes of less than $30,000 -
plan to spend the least.


Launch 'go' for Tuesday


Tiles a concern

in decision
CAPE CANAVERAL -
NASA senior managers com-
pleted a detailed review of space
shuttle Discovery's readiness for
flight and selected Oct. 23 as the
launch date.
Commander Pam Melroy
and her six crewmates are
scheduled to lift off at 11:38
a.m. EDT on the STS-120 mis-
sion to the International Space
Station.
The Oct. 16 meeting
included a discussion about con-
cerns raised by the NASA
Engineering and Safety Center
regarding the reinforced carbon
carbon on three of Discovery's
wing leading edge panels. This
issue initially was brought
before the Space Shuttle
Program during a two-day, pre-
liminary review to assess prepa-
rations for Discovery's mission.
"After a thorough discus-
sion and review of all current
engineering analysis, we have
determined that Discovery's
panels do not need to be
replaced before the, mission,"
said Associate Administrator for
Space Operations Bill
Gerstenmaier, who chaired
Tuesday's meeting.
During the shuttle's 120th
mission, the shuttle and station
crews will work with flight
controllers at NASA's Johnson
Space Center, Houston, to add
a module to the station that will
serve as a port for installing
future international laborato-
ries.
The Harmony module will
be the first expansion of the liv-
ing and working space on the
station since 2001. The upcom-
ing mission also will move the
first set of solar arrays installed
on the station to a permanent
location on the complex and
redeploy them.
The 14-day mission
includes five spacewalks four
by shuttle crew members and
one by the station's Expedition
16 crew.
Discovery is expected to
complete its mission and return
home at 4:47 a.m. Nov. 6.

Melroy on STS-120 will be Pilot

merchandise this season won't be
known until year's end, officials
say.
According to Joe Davidoff,
the assistant manager of the USF
St. Petersburg bookstore, the
contract between the university
and the store states a commission
for the university.
"Every month a check is sent
out, and the university receives a
percentage of our sales," he said.
The commission is separate
from the licensing fee for USF-
branded merchandise, and the
commission money goes directly
into university coffers. The
license fees go to USF's athletic
program.

Top AP scholars

named in six


county high schools


Ten are among 118 scholars

of distinction across Pinellas


LARGO Ten students
from six Pinellas County high
schools were named National
AP Scholars for their achieve-
ment in Advanced Placement
exams taken through May.
To be a national scholar, a
student must take at least eight
AP exams and attain an average
score of at least 4. The highest
possible score is 5, and scores
of 3 or above often are accepted
for college credit.
East Lake High School had
three scholars, while Dunedin
High School and Lakewood
High Center for Advanced
Technologies had two each.
Palm Harbor University High
International Baccalaureate, St.
Petersburg High International
Baccalaureate and Tarpon
Springs High School each had
one scholar.
The 10 scholars are among
488 AP Scholars With
Distinction from 18 Pinellas
County high schools and mag-


net programs in 2007. There are
several different AP Scholar
awards, depending on the level
of achievement. Though they
are not monetary awards, stu-
dents receive a certificate and
their achievement is noted on
AP Grade Reports sent to col-
leges.
There were 118 AP
Scholars with Distinction at 16
schools and magnet programs.
This award goes to students
who receive an average grade of
at least 3.5 on all AP exams
taken and grades of 3 or higher
on five or more of these exams.
The district's 89 AP
Scholars with Honor from 16
schools and magnet programs
received an average grade of at
least 3.25 on all AP exams
taken and grades of 3 or higher
on four or more of them.
There were 284 AP
Scholars who received grades
of 3 or higher on three or more
AP exams

of which are dropping coverage
because they can't make ends

need to keep their kids insured.
The credit would be a dol-

The credit would be paid

reductions in wasteful spending,
such as corporate welfare. The
rest of the credit -- reducing
family tax bills -- would be paid
for by limiting the tax-free sta-
