ST. PETERSBURG The countdown is
over. The sales have started.
Today is Black Friday. Are you ready?
And even though there's been worry about
less traffic in stores, retailers plan to be just as
busy as last year.
One big difference this year: More people
will shop online and avoid the lines.
Wal-Mart released some of their Black Friday


prices early, in hopes of luring customers in early.
University of South Florida Marketing professor
James Stock says it won't stop shoppers today.
"People buying before Black Friday proba-
bly don't want to go shopping that day," Stock
said. "They don't want to stand in line."
Stock added that Black Friday has become a
habit in American shopping behavior, and that
it will take more than a few early sales to change
consumer behavior.

Hate crimes reported down for second straig]


Pinellas News Staff Report
TALLAHASSEE Reported hate
crimes in Florida fell last year to their
lowest level since 1998, Attorney
General Bill McCollum announced.
McCollum released the Florida
Hate Crimes Report covering the
2006 calendar year, noting that a to-
tal of 259 hate crimes were reported
by local law enforcement agencies
that year. Since hate crime reporting


began in 1990, Florida law enforce-
ment agencies have reported an an-
nual average of 277 reported hate
crime incidents, well above this
year's total hate crimes reported.
"As this report indicates, the num-
ber of hate crimes committed in
Florida has been decreasing for years,
a statistic I am pleased to support,"
McCollum said. "Our Office of Civil
Rights is committed to fighting any
hate-motivated injustices as part of


its mission."
There are two broad categories
of hate crime offenses -- crimes
against persons and crimes against
property. Reports for 2006 showed
that a smaller share of hate crimes
were directed at persons than in the
previous year, with a corresponding
increase in the share directed at
property.

Legislation gives
chance to vote
on incorporation

By DOUGLAS E. JESSMER
The Pinellas News
ST. PETERSBURG The county's legislative
delegation introduced a local bill to incorporate
Palm Harbor as a city, but won't take action on it un-
til January.
The delegation will meet Jan. 3 at the Hickman
Theater in Gulfport. The Palm Harbor act and two
other local bills will be voted upon.
Rep. Peter Nehr, R-Tarpon Springs, said the
bill has faced no major opposition so far. Pinellas
County hasn't yet researched the proposal, he
noted.
2 l Nehr, who sponsors the legislation, said Palm
Harbor itself has about 60,000 constituents, making
up about a third of the county's unincorporated-
area population. While Nehr doesn't have an opin-
ion on incorporation, he said he believes the resi-
dents should have the chance to decide for
themselves. Rep. Tom Anderson, R-Dunedin, is the
bill's co-sponsor.

Pinellas News Staff Report
CLEARWATER Couples who exchange their
marriage vows at the local clerk's office may now
purchase a wedding photo there.
"The reality is that people usually have somewhat
impromptu weddings at the clerk's office, which
Lh t year can lead to forgetting things such as a camera."
Clerk of the Circuit Court Ken Burke said.
"Nobody plans a year or even six months in ad-
mber vance of the big day with our offices in mind," he
:rimes added. "But, everyone wants a special, memorable
ed in Florida ceremony and a nice keepsake to commemorate
d r s their union."
decreasing The spontaneous nature of marriage ceremonies
a statistiC performed at the clerk's office is one reason, ac-
aSed to cording to Burke, that the clerk's office marriage

IN FOCUS



What a city of Palm



Harbor would look like


Residents of the
unincorporated
areas of Palm
Harbor, Crystal Beach,
Ozona and East Lake
have been discussing the
potential incorporation
of their communities as a
municipality. Here's a
look at what they've pre-
sented to legislators, who
would allow residents to
vote on the matter in
November 2008.


Timeline
The feasibility study put together
by the coalition follows this
timeline.
October 2007: Sponsor for local
bill that will be submitted to the
Pinellas County Legislative
Delegation for a vote January 3,
2008.
November 2007: Feasibility
Report on incorporation is
completed. On Nov. 15, 2007 the
Feasibility Report and Charter in
the form of a local bill presented
to the Pinellas County Legislative
Delegation for review by
legislative staff.
January 2008: Pinellas County
Legislative Delegation meeting,
and if passed.
March 2008: Local bill goes to
Florida Legislature, and if passed.
Spring and summer 2008:
Community debates incorporation.
November 2008: Incorporation
referendum, and if passed
March 2009: Council elections
held. Town becomes a legal entity,
starts receiving Penny for Pinellas
Revenue, begins receiving
revenue sharing and sales tax.


Some basics
FORM OF GOVERNMENT: Council-
manager type, similar to Dunedin
and Tarpon Springs. The council,
including the mayor, would be 5-7
members.
FIRE AND POLICE SERVICES:
Palm Harbor Fire and Rescue
District would continue, and the
Pinellas County Sheriff's Office
would still provide police
protection.
POPULATION: Figures from the
county put the entire area at more
than 96,000 people. By 2025,
projections top 100,000.


The coalition
The Greater Palm Harbor
Community Coalition, which is
pushing for incorporation,
includes:
* Palm Harbor Recreation
* Palm Harbor Library
* East Lake Library
* Palm Harbor Community
Services Agency
* Old Palm Harbor Main Street
* Palm Harbor Chamber of
Commerce
* Palm Harbor Historical Society
* North Pinellas Community
Action Council
* Downtown Palm Harbor
Merchants Assn.
* Palm Harbor Civics Club
* Palm Harbor Kiwanis

Major findings from the feasibility study


ADDITIONAL REVENUES FOR MUNICIPALITIES:
Certain revenue sources authorized by the
Legislature are paid directly to municipalities.
Some of those revenue sources, like the Municipal
Revenue Sharing Program, would be a new source
of funding that is available to municipalities. The
Municipal Revenue Sharing Program could
generate several million dollars for the study area
if the citizens chose to incorporate. There is other
revenue sources available to municipalities such
as local option gas taxes that help generate funds
for municipalities.
PENNY FOR PINELLAS: Penny for Pinellas
revenues are proceeds of the additional 1-cent
Local Government Infrastructure Surtax on Sales
pursuant to Florida statutes. Palm Harbor would
receive an equitable distribution of this revenue
source based on population, if it incorporated.
LOCAL GOVERNMENT 1/2-CENT SALES TAX
PROGRAM: Created in 1982, the program
generates the largest amount of revenue for local
governments among the state-shared revenue
sources currently authorized by the Legislature.
The program's primary purpose is to provide relief
from ad valorem taxes in addition to providing
counties and municipalities with revenues for local
programs. If Palm Harbor incorporated, the
additional funding generated from this source
alone would be over $5 million.
LAW ENFORCEMENT SERVICES: Palm Harbor's
per capital share of the cost for law enforcement
services charged to the Unincorporated County -
Municipal Services Taxing Unit budget may be less
than if Palm Harbor contracts directly with the
Pinellas County Sheriff's Office. According to the
most recent estimate, the residents of the study
area could pay several million dollars more for
contracted law enforcement services.


NO NEW TAXES REQUIRED: The millage rate
would stay the same as the current MSTU rate of
2.0857 mills, generating roughly $16.8 million. No
new taxes should be required if Palm Harbor
became a town. The municipality could remain a
resident and business friendly place by continuing
to not charge a utility services taxes. After the
town created a sufficient fund reserve, it may
reduce the tax burden imposed on property
owners via a reduced ad valorem millage rate.
PALM HARBOR SPECIAL TAXING DISTRICTS:
Special taxing districts in Palm Harbor would
remain, even if Palm Harbor becomes a town. The
Palm Harbor Fire and Rescue District levies a
1.8263 millage rate that will generate
approximately $8.7 million. The Palm Harbor
Community Services District levies a 0.4378
millage rate that will generate about $2 million.
EAST LAKE SPECIAL TAXING DISTRICTS: Current
special taxing districts in the East Lake Tarpon
area would remain even if Palm Harbor becomes a
town. The East Lake Tarpon Fire and Rescue
District levies a 1.4292 millage rate that will
generate approximately $4.7 million. The Pinellas
County Library Cooperative (PCLC) District levies a
0.4437 millage rate that will generate
approximately $1.5 million. (The town could
replace this with a community services overlay
district of equal millage to provide library and
recreation services).
EFFECTS OF INCORPORATION: Residents of Palm
Harbor, if it incorporates, will have greater control
over service delivery in the Palm Harbor area.
Changes in land use and management could be
made to preserve the town's unique communities.
There would be greater fiscal control of the tax
burden. A local government would provide
proportionate representation.


Legislators will look at local bill

when they meet again in January


CITY I From Page 1

The Greater Palm Harbor
Community Coalition, a group of
civic organizations and commu-
nity services, presented the
county's legislative delegation a
proposed city charter. The docu-
ment is the end result of a process
that began in August, when citi-
zens of Palm Harbor, Ozona and
Crystal Beach first discussed how
Pinellas County's budget for un-
incorporated areas would change.
The coalition says that while
the county will receive about $16
million on behalf of the unincor-
porated area's population from


state taxes, the county intends to
only allocate $3 million of the
money to services for those resi-
dents. That money provides serv-
ices to the unincorporated areas
that, like city government serv-
ices, are over and above services
provided to the entire county.
The coalition asserts that the
diversion of that money has a
negative impact on basic public
safety in the county's unincorpo-
rated areas. The $16 million
comes from the state's Local
Government Half-Cent Sales Tax
Program.
Nehr added that the coalition
believes the "Penny For Pinellas"


levy also didn't give Palm Harbor
residents back what they paid in.
Unlike other unincorporated
areas of the county, Palm Harbor
is protected from annexation by a
special act of the state legislature.
About 280,000 people live in
the county's unincorporated ar-
eas, which include Bay Pines,
East Lake, Feather Sound,
Gandy, Harbor Bluffs, Palm Har-
bor, Ridgecrest, South High-
point, Tierra Verde and Lealman.
The coalition seeks to allow
Crystal Beach, Ozona and East
Lake residents the chance to join
Palm Harbor through separate
elections.


'Santa's Workshop' comes to Seminole Mall


MADEIRA BEACH Looks
like Santa's headed south for the
winter.
On Saturday, Dec. 1, "Santa's
Workshop" will open at the Semi-
nole Mall.
The store will showcase the
works of numerous local artists
offered for sale during the holiday
shopping period.
Framed paintings, photo-


graphs, sculptures, jewelry, signs
and other hand-crafted items will
be available for shoppers to ad-
mire and purchase.
Local artists will exhibit in the
store, which will remain open un-
til Dec. 23.
Store hours will be 11 a.m.-7
p.m. daily. Volunteers, especially
those with retail experience, are
needed to assist with operating


the store.
Located in the site of the pre-
vious video arcade on the east
side of the Mall, near Bealls, the
shop is operated by the Santa's
Angels Christmas Charity
(www.santasangels.us).
Participating artists will con-
tribute a portion of their sales for
the charity's benefit, which helps
deliver food, clothing and gifts to


needy families in Pinellas County.
By patronizing the Workshop,
local residents will support an en-
tirely-local charity that benefits
Pinellas County children who,
typically, might not enjoy the
magic of presents under the
Christmas tree or a traditional
Christmas dinner.
Santa's Angels is a certified
charity.

Look under

the hood

when these

people talk

Buying a used car usually
involves a look at several
different vehicles, and at
least one of them will look real-
ly good, until you look under the
hood. Then you realize it's not
what it seems, and walk away.
So goes this little tidbit that
came in the mail last week an
announcement that former U.S.
Attorney General Janet Reno
joined the Fairness for All Fami-
lies Campaign. Reno isn't the is-
sue it's the campaign's double-
speak. They have to cloak their
true intent, which isn't "fairness"
for "unmarried couples."
"Reno, a longtime advocate
for children and families, will
serve on the honorary board
for the fairness campaign to de-
feat a proposed amendment to
the Florida constitution that
could strip away employee bene-
fits for unmarried Floridians and
their loved ones," the announce-
ment says. "The measure is
slated for the Nov. 2008 ballot."
Sounds good, "employee
benefits for unmarried Floridians
and their loved ones." Keep read-
ing.
Barbara A. DeVane of the
Florida Alliance for Retired
Americans, who's a member of
the campaign's oversight com-
mittee, said this in the announce-
ment: "This amendment will hurt
all unmarried couples and every
Floridian who cares about their
future, and that of their loved
ones, must stand up and oppose
this discrimination."
When I think of an unmar-
ried couple, I think of a man and
a woman (who some would say
"shack up"). In this day and age,
there's a lot more of that, and
whether it's a commentary that
marriage is outdated (it isn't) is
an issue for another column.
But that's not what this
group means. DeVane and the
campaign's oversight committee
apparently want you to overlook
the real issue.
The announcement contin-
ues: "The Fairness for All Fami-
lies Campaign has amassed a
coalition of nearly 200 organiza-
tions and community leaders
representing seniors, business
leaders, consumer groups and
social justice organizations
working together to oppose the
effort to take away benefits and
enshrine discrimination in
Florida's constitution."
Discrimination? Denying
benefits to unmarried couples?
Since when is that discrimination?
If you're not married, and you're
living with someone, you can't get
their health insurance. Period.
Or is this about something
else? Let's read on: "More than
8,000 public and private employ-
ers nationwide including al-
most half of the Fortune 500
companies offer health care
benefits to employee's domestic
partners or spouses.
Ah, wait I get it. It's not
really about "unmarried cou-
ples." Feeling a little deceived?
"The addition of Janet Reno
to the Fairness for All Families
Campaign comes at a time when
editorial boards across the state
are taking a strong stand against
the amendment as 'unnecessary'
and 'harmful' to all unmarried
Floridians including seniors, pub-
lic employees and others who


rely on domestic partnership ben-
efits to protect their loved ones."
If there's an alarm bell go-
ing off in your head now, not
only did you look under the
hood, you saw and heard the
leaks and rattles. It's about giv-
ing same-gender pairings rights
that "unmarried couples" don't -
and won't have.

Most motorists will only see this side of the Largo Police Department's new unmarked F-150. The toolbox pops up to reveal the traditional
police-car red-and-blue light bar. The truck has been used lately in the department's U.S. 19 traffic-calming campaign.



Police 'pickup' speeders


Largo's unmarked truck versatile

for different tasks, officers say


By DOUGLAS E. JESSMER
The Pinellas News

ST. PETERSBURG It's
10:30 a.m. Tuesday, and south-
bound drivers on U.S. 19 don't
notice the dark-blue Ford pickup
truck sitting beside an exit on-
ramp in Largo.
If they're speeding, chances
are better they're looking for a
white Crown Victoria police


cruiser. But the truck sits and
waits at the ready, a Largo police
officer at the wheel.
Two cruisers, marked with
the familiar Largo white-and-
blue stripes, sit a little further
south, lights flashing, motorists
pulled over.
The truck is an "unconven-
tional" weapon in the war on
speeding, a valuable asset in the
city's U.S. 19 speeding campaign.


"It's really a versatile vehicle
we can use for just about any-
thing," Sgt. George Edmiston
said of the truck, which he de-
scribed as an "unconventional
police vehicle."
Largo bought the truck as
part of a larger state contract,
but is not the first police depart-
ment in Pinellas County to use
pickups. Clearwater police use a
Ford F-250 and the Sheriff's Of-
fice has a mid-size Dodge.
"We're the last ones to get on
board," Edmiston said.
The truck is a base model,

BRIEFS


Submitted photo
Daughters of firefighter Rick
Seissian unveil a plaque during the
renaming of a Dunedin fire station
for their father last week.


Fallen firefighter honored
with station name
DUNEDIN To honor a re-
cently fallen Dunedin firefighter,
the city rededicated one of its fire
stations.
Fire Station 60, at 1042 Vir-
ginia Ave., was recently renamed
Rick Seissian Fire Station 60.
Seissian was a 30-year veteran
of the department whose battle
with cancer ended with his death
this year.
The rededication ceremony in-
cluded an address by Dunedin Fire
Chief C. "Bud" Meyer followed
by speeches from Mayor Robert
Hackworth, City Manager Rob
Dispirito and Dunedin Fire Fight-
ers Local 2327 President Eric
Thiemann.
A bronze plaque to be erected
at the station entrance was un-
veiled by Seissian's daughters, Tia
Seissian and Kim Garcia. A
"memory wall" to be erected in
the fire station was unveiled by
Ellen Seissian and her daughter
Patti.
The Dunedin City Commission
unveiled the new "Rick Seissian
Station 60" marquee sign at the
front of the fire station.


Man arrested after running
from court to avoid arrest
A man who was on his way to
court to appear on a failure-to-
appear warrant Nov. 15 fled the
county courthouse, leading
deputies on a chase.
Deputies say Joshua Maxson
went to the Pinellas County Crim-
inal Justice Complex last week to
rectify the failure-to-appear war-
rant on a possession of marijuana
charge.
He missed a previous sched-
uled court appearance and was ad-
vised to come in for a hearing be-
fore a judge.
He initially arrived at the
wrong courtroom, and after he
was escorted to the correct court-
room, Bailiffs say he apparently
changed his mind about appearing
and ran out the front door of the
courthouse.
Patrol deputies responded and
found him in a wooded area adja-
cent to a business complex across
49th Street from the Criminal Jus-
tice Complex. Deputies deployed
an electronic control device on
Maxson, as he was struggling,
then secured him.
Maxson is now charged on the
original warrant, plus charges of
obstruction and resisting arrest
without violence.

Tips for Holiday Shopping From Consumer Reports


* Pay in cash when you don't
want to be added to any new
mailing lists.
* Use a check when you don't
want to carry cash, take the
risk of a stolen debit card, or
take a chance that you won't
be able to pay the credit card
bill in full when it arrives.
* Don't write a check unless
the money to cover it is
already in your account. If your
check bounces, you will have
to pay a bounced check fee
that might be $15 to $20 or
more. The retailer or its check
guarantee company may also
assess a collection fee.
* You may stop payment on a
check if you have a dispute
with a merchant, but you must
act fast, before the check
clears.
* Use a debit card only if you
don't like to write checks or
carry cash, and don't think
that you might need to return
the goods later.
* A debit card takes money
right out of your checking
account. It is much more like
paying with cash than either a
check or a credit card.
* After you pay by debit card,
you can't stop payment the


way that you can with a
check.
* Carrying a debit card is
something like carrying a pad
of blank, signed checks. If you
lose your card, someone who
finds it can make purchases
up to the full purchase limit
(which may be $5,000 per day)
or the amount you have in
your account, plus any
overdraft protection. A person
in possession of your debit
card doesn't need your PIN or
any identification to use that
card in some locations.
* Credit cards can be good
for items that have to be
delivered or that might
break down if you can pay
the bill in full when it arrives.
* Try to restrict your credit
card use to purchases that will
allow you to pay in full when
the bill arrives. If you can
avoid carrying a balance, then
credit cards are good for large
purchases, transactions where
you pay first and accept
delivery later, purchases that
require future action by the
seller such as alteration or
installation, and items that
might break down or contain
flaws.


Retailers expect to be

busier online this season


FRIDAY I From Page 1

Some stores are encouraging
shoppers to use online and in
store services. Consumers can ex-
pect a new level of convenience
with the help of online depart-
ments.
Online spending will see its
share of the holiday rush. Ac-
cording to the Conference Board
Christmas Survey 30 percent of
all consumers will by Christmas
gifts online. About 38 percent of
consumers purchased gifts on the
internet last year with a satisfac-
tion rate of 91 percent.
Sears offers curbside pickup
for orders through online-to-store
programs with a "ready in 5 min-
utes guarantee." Buyers can or-

Get married, get photos, all in one place


PHOTOS I From Page 1

At the suggestion of a clerk's
office employee, the recently
installed passport photo equip-
ment is being used to offer new-
lyweds a wedding photo for a
$10 fee per 4x6 photo.
Using the equipment, the
clerk's office can now take a


picture, process it within a few
moments and place it in a com-
memorative photo card.
Citizens may apply for a
marriage license, have their
wedding ceremony performed
and/or purchase a wedding
photo at the following clerk's

Hate crimes on decline across the state


See CRIME I Page 4

Crimes against persons ac-
counted for 66 percent of all inci-
dents reported in 2006, down
from 71 percent in 2005, while
crimes against property accounted
for the remaining 34 percent, up
from 29 percent in 2005.
The 2006 report shows not
only the number of hate crimes
committed, but also categorizes
the offenses by the nature of the
motivating factor.
During 2006, hate crimes mo-
tivated by the victim's race repre-
sented 55.2 percent of all reported


hate crimes, followed by crimes
motivated by sexual orientation
at 18.1 percent; religion at 13.5
percent; and ethnicity/national
origin at 13.1 percent.
No hate crimes were reported
under the categories of disability
or advanced age.
Data in the Hate Crimes Re-
port was submitted by local law
enforcement agencies to the
Florida Department of Law En-
forcement, which then provided it
to the Attorney General's Office
for reporting.
The Hate Crimes in Florida
Report is prepared each year pur-


suant to the state's Hate Crimes
Reporting Act.
The report summarizes data
collected by local law enforce-
ment agencies and submitted to
the Florida Department of Law
Enforcement.
The report does not include
unreported crimes or those that
may have been hate-related but
were not classified as such by the
local law enforcement agency.
Since 1994, the Attorney Gen-
eral's Office of Civil Rights has
conducted hate crimes training
seminars for state and local law
enforcement agencies.


der merchandise online and pick
it up at the Sears store's curbside
in less than the time it would have
taken them to drive to the store.
Like Wal-Mart, Sears had their
Black Friday prices available
Thanksgiving night.
Brookstone has packed its
stores with the popular Sona Pil-
low and a digital photo keychain,
which sold out last year. In ef-
forts to minimize customer wait-
ing, the mall retailer piled on the
holiday help.
"Hiring, hiring, hiring and
training, training, training" was
the answer from Tyrone Square
Mall Brookstone Manager
Patrick. He said the store hired
six new staffers to help with the
holiday rush.


Tips for online holiday shopping
Experts predict that consumers will spend more online this
holiday season than ever. The Federal Trade Commission, the
nation's consumer protection agency, and the National Cyber
Security Alliance offer these tips for safer and smarter online
shopping this holiday season.

CHECK OUT THE SELLER. If you're thinking about shopping on a
site with which you're not familiar, do some independent
research before you buy. If it's your first time on an unfamiliar
site, call the seller's phone number, so you know you can reach
them if you need to.
READ THE SITE'S PRIVACY POLICY to learn how it uses and
shares your personal information.
CONSIDER USING A SOFTWARE TOOLBAR that rates websites
and warns you if a site has gotten unfavorable reports from
experts and other Internet users. Some reputable companies
provide free tools that may alert you.
READ RETURN POLICIES. Despite your best intentions, some
gifts may need to be returned or exchanged. Find out who covers
the shipping cost on a return or exchange, and if your purchase
can be returned to a store.
KNOW WHAT YOU'RE GETTING. Read the seller's product
description closely. Name-brand items at greatly reduced prices
could be counterfeit.
DON'T FALL FOR A FALSE EMAIL OR POP-UP. Legitimate
companies don't send unsolicited email messages asking for
your password or login name, or your financial information.
Crooks often send emails that look just like they're from
legitimate companies but direct you to click on a link, where
they ask for your personal information. Delete these emails.
LOOK FOR SIGNS A SITE IS SAFE. When you're ready to buy
something from a seller you trust, look for signs that the site is
secure such as a closed padlock on the browser's status bar
- before you enter your personal and financial information.
SECURE YOUR COMPUTER. At a minimum, your computer
should have anti-virus and anti-spyware software, and a firewall.
Security software must be updated regularly. Set your security
software and operating system to update automatically. Visit
OnGuardOnline.gov and staysafeonline.org to learn more.
CONSIDER HOW YOU'LL PAY. Credit cards generally are a safe
option because they allow buyers to seek a credit from the
issuer if the product isn't delivered or isn't what was ordered.
Also, if your credit card number is stolen, you generally won't be
liable for more than $50 in charges.
KNOW THE FULL PRICE, AND CHECK OUT INCENTIVES. If you're
looking for the best deal, compare total costs, including shipping
and handling.
KEEP A PAPER TRAIL. Print and save records of your online
transactions. Read your credit card statements as soon as you
get them to make sure there aren't any unauthorized charges.

Redington Beaches home judging set Dec. 12


REDINGTON BEACHES -
The Redington Beaches Holiday
Home Decorating Committee has
announced that the judging for
the local competition for "Best
Decorated Home" will be held on
the evening of Dec. 12.


The contest is open to all res-
idents of Redington Beach, North
Redington Beach and Redington
Shores and all decorated homes
will be considered.
No formal entry is required;
just decorate your home.


Residents of those towns are
invited to dress up their homes in
full holiday regalia.
Lights, wreaths, garland, dec-
orated trees, lawn displays and
seasonal music are all encouraged
as decorating options.


Homes from each town will
be awarded first, second and third
Places, with the prizes presented
that evening.
The house decorating winners
will also be acknowledged at the
awards presentation for the Red-


ington Beaches/Indian Shores
Holiday Boat Parade, held on the
evening of Sunday, Dec. 16, at
"The Pub" restaurant in Indian
Shores.
Volunteer judges from each of
the three participating towns


make the selections.

Florida's red tides are natural phenomena a new center at the University of South Florida-St. Petersburg will track.



Center will track red tide


Five-year contract seals deal with

state conservation commission


ST. PETERSBURG A
newly established facility of the
University of South Florida will
develop models to forecast
Florida's red tide conditions.
USF and the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion's Fish and Wildlife Re-
search Institute (FWRI) an-
nounce the establishment of the
Center for Prediction of Red
Tides at the University's Col-
lege of Marine Science in St.
Petersburg.
A five-year, $1.25 million
contract from the FWRI will
help finance the center that will
assist the state's red tide moni-
toring program. USF is matching
the state's contribution with a
$400,000 computer cluster along
with staff support for the center.
Florida red tides are natural
phenomena caused by a micro-
scopic organism, Karenia bre-
vis. K. brevis produces a toxin
that can kill fish (see photo at


right), birds and marine mam-
mals, such as dolphins and man-
atees. It can also cause respira-
tory problems in people.
Factors in red tide formation
and persistence in Florida are
extremely complex. Oceanic
currents, nutrients, weather and
interactions among numerous
marine algae species contribute
to bloom conditions.
CPR will combine informa-
tion from multiple sources in-
cluding FWRI red tide monitor-
ing data; USF water circulation,
temperature, salinity, and other
data; satellite imagery; and
models to develop forecasting
capabilities for red tide condi-
tions and impacts. Initially, wa-
ter circulation models combined
with red tide cell counts will
yield short-term forecasts based
on projections of particle move-
ments. The initial forecast ca-
pabilities will be refined through
ongoing research and develop-

Research Institute:

m/redtide.
USF's Center for
Prediction of Red Tides
will soon launch a
dedicated web site:
http://cpr.marine.usf.edu

ment of coupled physical/bio-
logical models, with results
eventually being incorporated
into FWRI's weekly red tide sta-
tus reports. CPR researchers
also use satellite imagery to
identify areas of red tide blooms
within Florida coastal waters,
helping the state to better target
monitoring efforts.
"For the first time, the Center
for Prediction of Red Tides will
pull together biological, chemi-
cal, and physical scientific ex-
pertise and couple it with ad-
vanced computing power to
model the factors contributing
to red tide formation across all


appropriate spatial scales," said
Gil McRae, FWRI director.
The long-term goal of this
collaborative partnership is to
create a routine capability to
predict Florida red tides and
their potential impacts. In the
future, biological models that
address factors such as bloom
growth, when coupled with the
physical models and supported
by additional data, will improve
the predictability of bloom evo-
lution from beginning to end.
"As a comprehensive re-
search University within an ur-
ban setting, a USF goal is the
application of science for the
benefit of Florida's citizens,"
said Peter R. Betzer, dean of
USF's College of Marine Sci-
ence. "CPR, is an important step
in this process.
"The same CPR red tide pre-
diction tools will find applica-
tions for fisheries, safe and effi-
cient navigation, search and
rescue, coastal inundation by
storm surge and other ocean
matters of urban societal con-
cern," Betzer said.


WASHINGTON In its first
year of operation, a biometrics-
at-sea program was pronounced
a success, the U.S. Department of
Homeland Security.
In its first 12 months, the pro-
gram collected biometric data
from 1,368 migrants, prose-
cuted 90 of those migrants, and
helped reduce the flow of illegal
migration by nearly 50 percent in
the waters between Puerto Rico
and the Dominican Republic.
"The Coast Guard is charged
with securing America's borders
along more than 95,000 miles of
coastline," said Rear Adm. Wayne
E. Justice, Coast Guard director of
response policy. "This collabora-
tive interagency program is lead-
ing to many successful prosecu-
tions and helping to deter illegal
migration. For the Coast Guard,
biometric tc'in i11 -1., has been an
effective tool for positively iden-
tifying migrants and meeting our
mission of maritime domain
awareness."
This program, initiated last
November, is an information-
sharing effort between US-VISIT


and the U.S. Coast Guard to ad-
dress the challenge of identifying
illegal migrants who are inter-
dicted at sea.
The pilot program provides the
Coast Guard with the technical
capability to digitally capture fin-
gerprints from illegal migrants ap-
prehended at sea. The Coast
Guard then uses satellite technol-
ogy to immediately compare the
migrant information against US-
VISIT's data, which includes in-
formation about wanted crimi-
nals, immigration violators and
those who have previously en-
countered government authorities.
The Coast Guard says that un-
til now, it did not have the tech-
nology to accurately identify ille-
gal migrants interdicted in the
most highly traveled areas,
namely around Puerto Rico.
The success of the program
has significantly advanced the ef-
fort to develop effective mobile
solutions for biometric collection
and analysis, and represents an-
other step in the department's
comprehensive strategy to secure
the nation's borders.


'Swamp' goes green


GAINESVILLE Screaming
fans, marching bands, hulking
linebackers and offsetting a
carbon footprint.
Which one doesn't belong?
Actually, starting at this Satur-
day's annual football match-up
between the University of Florida
and Florida State University, they
all go together. That's because UF
on Saturday will become the first
university in the nation to attempt
to counteract the greenhouse
gases created by a college football
game.
To do it, UF and its partners,
the Florida Forestry Association
and Environmental Defense, are
arranging for approximately 18
acres of rural North Florida land


to be set aside and managed as a
pine plantation forest for 10 years.
UF calculates that this is an
acreage and period of time suffi-
cient to absorb all the carbon
emissions from the game.
Dedee DeLongpr6-Johnston,
director of UF's Office of Sus-
tainability, is coordinating the ef-
fort on behalf of the university.
"This is a way for us to high-
light the fact that even routine col-
lege events like football games
generate large amounts of green-
house gases," she said. "We also
want to show that we can help to
counteract these emissions, and
that Florida's forests have value
beyond their usefulness for paper
products."

Body found under

Madeira Beach business


MARKETPLACE


LARGO Pinellas County
Sheriff's detectives are conduct-
ing a death investigation follow-
ing the discovery of skeletal re-
mains beneath a Madeira Beach
business.
The remains were discovered
at about 3 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 17,
by workers renovating a business
formerly known as Wicked Gifts
located at 110 129th Ave. E.,
Madeira Beach.


Homicide detectives and in-
vestigators are attempting to iden-
tify the remains and determine
how they got under the building's
floor. The cause and manner of
death are still unknown.
Anyone with information con-
cerning this investigation is asked
to contact the Pinellas County
Sheriff's Office Homicide Unit at
(727) 582-6200, or Crime Stop-
pers at 1-800-873-TIPS.


Cloaked in doublespeak,

campaign wants unfairness


HOOD I From Page 3

"Fairness for All Families,"
the announcement says, "is a
growing coalition that includes
seniors, business leaders, con-
sumer groups and social justice
organizations who are joining
together to oppose stripping
away existing employee benefits
while barring the passage of fu-
ture measures to help Florida
families."
The coalition's honorary
board of directors includes sev-
eral leading Democrats across
Florida, a former AARP presi-
dent, the state ACLU director
and NAACP president, as well
as the worldwide moderator of
Metropolitan Community
Churches.


While the Fairness for All
Families Campaign says it's
about fairness, it's really not.
Traditional male-female couples
who happen not to be married
will get the shaft. It's not exactly
"social justice," which is what
some of the campaign's organi-
zations say they champion. They
really are h.niii;, the passage
of future measures to help
Florida families."
There's a pretty big oil pud-
dle hidden under this lemon.
