Second

murder

suspect

nabbed

Three sought in
July shooting,
home invasion
Pinellas News Staff Report
LARGO Sheriff's homicide
detectives have arrested and
charged a second suspect in con-
nection with a July 1 shooting
death during an alleged drug deal
and home invasion.
The shooting of Antron Peter-
son, 28, of St. Petersburg, is al-
leged to have taken place during a
drug deal and home invasion.
Investigators say an Asian male
suspect went to Peterson's home
with the intent to buy or sell drugs.
Once inside the home, two
other Asian males, who wore
masks, entered the residence.
While there, deputies say, one of
the masked suspects held three
other people inside the home at
gunpoint, while the other masked
suspect chased and shot Peterson.
After the murder, one suspect
fled on foot, while the two others
left the scene in a car. Deputies
still seek a third male Asian sus-
pect.
The suspect, Gary Phonsouk,
18, of Ruskin, was booked into
the Hillsborough County Jail
Tuesday night on a first-degree
murder charge. Home-invasion
and robbery charges are being
considered, officials say.
Deputies say Phonsouk will be
transported to the Pinellas County
Jail.
The first suspect, Kevin Yun,
18, of Kenneth City, was arrested
at his residence without incident
July 1. He was charged with
felony murder, after allegedly go-
ing to the St. Petersburg home
with the intent to buy or sell drugs.

The facility, seen as a 'long
time coming,' will include car
rental, restaurant concessions


By DOUGLAS E. JESSMER
The Pinellas News
ST. PETERSBURG -Nearly
80 years ago, St. Petersburg's
city council was told of the im-
portance of a passenger terminal
to Albert Whitted Airport and to
the city's future growth.
It was a "long time coming,"
airport advisory committee
Chairman Jack Tunstill said, but
on Monday the city dedicated
the $4 million Albert Whitted
Intermodal General Aviation
Center.
"It's not a place for rich boys
to hang out," Tunstill said. "It's
for the pilots and it's for the
community to come down."
Originally bid in 1999, the
project was postponed after costs
exceeded available funds. In


2003, St. Petersburg voters de-
cided to preserve the airport,
which was a onetime hub for Na-
tional Airlines and was a port for
air mail. After the referendum,
the terminal plan was revived.
"All I can say is, what a dif-
ference four years makes," said
Bill Dunn, a vice president of
the Aircraft Owners and Pilots
Association.
City Council President Jamie
Bennett, himself an aviator, re-
minded the 250 people in atten-
dance that at the 2003 Albert
Whitted Air Fest, 25,000 people
left the airport with signs that
said "Save Our City No On
3," supporting the airport. He
linked the terminal to the 2003
vote.

After two
delays, board
resolves
magnet
school issue
By MELISSA McCARTNEY
The Pinellas News
ST. PETERSBURG After
two false starts, a new student as-
signment plan was approved Tues-
day for Pinellas County schools.
The plan was supposed to have
been approved in November, but the
vote was pushed to Dec. 11. After
remaining concerns about magnet-
school assignments in a planning
meeting the afternoon of the vote,
Superintendent Clayton Wilcox
pulled the plan from consideration
to allow time for more work.
The plan calls for a return to
neighborhood, "close-to-home"
school assignments, and ends the
five-year "choice" plan, and will
go into effect for the 2008-09
school year.
The new assignment scheme
aims to reduce transportation costs
for the county, and provide pre-
dictable "feeder patterns" ele-
mentary students will know where
they go to middle and high
schools.

Cop's home
broken into
Pinellas News Staff Report
ST. PETERSBURG Investi-
gators seek a suspect in connec-
tion with the invasion of a Clear-
water policeman's home.
The officer, Eliad Glenn, 29,
was preparing for work when he
heard a noise, then spotted the in-
truder, who came into the home
through a garage door.
Glenn fired once at the in-
truder, but missed, and fired sev-
eral times at the getaway car. Tar-
pon Springs police say the car
may be a red or maroon late-
model Toyota Camry or Nissan
Altima.
"The suspect is no longer
thought to be in the area," Tarpon
Springs Police Lt. Barb Templeton
said. "A lot of officers have thor-
oughly searched the area, and he is
thought to have fled."
Anyone who may have a tip
should call Tarpon Springs police
at 727-938-2849.

Expert: Three situations make holiday stressful


CLEARWATER It's that
time of the year again people
are stringing lights, hanging or-
naments, and planning parties for
family and friends. It's supposed
to be the most wonderful time of
the year, right? Not exactly. For
some people, the holidays can
bring added stress and anxiety.
Dr. Stephen Giunta, Program
Development Director at Direc-
tions for Mental Health in Clear-
water, says there are three situa-
tions that stress out people the
most during the holidays: being
alone, visiting relatives, and hav-
ing to spend money.


"If you are spending the holi-
days alone, away from family or
friends, the best way to reduce
the stress is to stay busy," says
Dr. Giunta. "Turn off the TV and
make your own holiday tradition
- make a feast or help those less
fortunate. It'll keep you preoccu-
pied."
Visiting relatives can be an-
other cause of stress. Sometimes
in the holiday spirit people tend to
take on more than they can han-
dle. Dr. Giunta says it's important
to remember that you can't make
everyone happy. If, for example,
your house is where visiting fam-


ily stays, and it doesn't accom-
modate everyone comfortably,
then it may be time to ask an-
other relative to host the festivi-
ties.
It seems everyone worries
about money during the holidays,
but it's important to remember
that money doesn't buy holiday
happiness. "If you're stressing
over money this holiday season,
start a new tradition in your fam-
ily," says Dr. Giunta. "Teach your
children to focus on the emotional
fulfillment of the holiday season
and take their focus away from
the toys."


With the hustle and bustle of
the holidays, there is bound to be
some stressful event to cross your
path, but Dr. Giunta reminds us
that taking small steps to elimi-
nate the stress of relatives, money,
or spending time alone can be one
step closer to a happier holiday
season.
"Remember, the holidays are
all about giving, and it's impor-
tant to give of yourself, but it's
also important to remember that
you can't please everyone and do
everything," says Dr. Giunta.
"Set limits. Set realistic expecta-
tions."

Give thanks

this holiday,

and enjoy

family time

So this is Christmas.
Doesn't feel like it. After
all, there's no snow,
there's no... wait... WAIT!
567
RTYU
DFGHJK
CVBNM
Sorry about that. That was
just me, banging my head into
the keyboard, trying to snap out
of it. I've gotta force myself into
the holiday unreality.
You're supposed to give
thanks at Thanksgiving, but I'm
fashionably late. It's not unusual
for me to be late to the party, but
here's what I'm thankful for, and
what I'd like this Christmas.

What I'm thankful for
First, I'm thankful for a God
who's managed somehow to look
out for me when I was in self-de-
struct mode... which may hap-
pen at least once a day, but some-
how, He's always pulled me back
from the brink of stupidity. And
many, many, unending thanks to
Him for the reason for the sea-
son, His Son, my salvation.
I'm extremely thankful for
my wonderful, beautiful com-
panion. Angie, without you, I
know I'd be in a different place
as a person, and my life would
be a hollow shell. Granted, that
shell's probably cracked, but at
least it's full. If what's inside
oozes through those cracks, I
guess it just means you're more
to me than I need. Either that, or
we need some duct tape.
I'm also thankful for her
two daughters, who somehow
manage to help me stay young
mentally and sometimes floor
me with their surprisingly ma-
ture perspective, even if the Han-
nah Montana overload gets to be
too much! There've been a cou-
ple of occasions when I won-
dered if they weren't smarter
than I am.
I'm thankful that I'm back in
the newspaper industry, after sev-
eral months away. Before landing
at the Pinellas News, I was a vi-
sual editor at The Detroit News,
where my job was cut back in
January, after having only been
there not quite six months. Before
that, I was in Sarasota, and before
that, Pittsburgh. When I moved to
Florida the first time, I was glad
to escape the cold. When I moved
to Detroit, it was to get back to
the big city. Careful what you
wish for. So I'm thankful for the
Pinellas News, and that it's al-
lowed me to somehow refresh
myself as a journalist, and allow
me the latitude to do a bunch of
different things.
I'm thankful the car still
runs. I've had my Mustang since I
rolled it off the lot with a single
digit on the odometer in 2001, my
fourth pony, and I don't plan on
relinquishing the keys anytime
soon to some slimy guy with a
loud plaid jacket and a bunch of
other cars to sell. Except that
most car salesmen aren't slimy
and they haven't worn plaid since
the 1970s, but never mind that -
the stereotype continues un-
abated. Enjoy it, guys!
I'm thankful the roof doesn't
leak too much, that I don't go
hungry unless I opt not to eat, that
I can still afford gas (boy, that's
unbelievable), that I still have my
health (well, sorta)...


Enough thankfulness. I'm
feeling vulnerable now. This
isn't "Oprah."

What I'd like for Christmas
Every year, I get asked,
probably because I'm difficult to
buy for. My parents gave up a
long time ago, and that's proba-
bly a good thing since the

Incorporation papers



filed for Palm Harbor


Pinellas News Staff Report

ST. PETERSBURG The fi-
nal feasibility report and town
charter for the proposed town of
Palm Harbor were recently filed
with the state legislature.
The Greater Palm Harbor
Community Coalition submit-
ted the documents in the form of
a local bill to the Clerk of the
House in Tallahassee. The bill is
sponsored by State Rep. Peter
Nehr, R-Tarpon Springs, and co-
sponsored by State Rep. Tom An-
derson, R-Dunedin. The docu-
ments were also submitted to the
Pinellas County Commission.
The county's legislative del-
egation will meet Jan. 3 to de-
cide whether to put the local bill
before the entire legislature. The
bill, if approved by the legisla-
ture, will put to voters in No-
vember 2008 a decision to in-
corporate Palm Harbor.


Where to see the bill
WHERE TO SEE THE PAPERWORK: Copies of the feasibility
study and town charter are available at the Palm Harbor
Library, the Palm Harbor Recreation Center and the Old Palm
Harbor Main Street Office in Harbor Hall, 1190 Georgia Ave.
Access to the website, www.palmharborcoalition.org, is
available to the public at the Palm Harbor Library as well.
PUBLIC MEETINGS: In 2008, the Greater Palm Harbor
Community Coalition will be hosting a series of meetings
where the Feasibility Study can be discussed thoroughly and
questions can be asked.


East Lake, Ozona and Crystal
Beach residents will also have
the chance to opt into the new
town. The county provides mu-
nicipal services to the areas, but
would be replaced by the new
town government.
The coalition says that while
the county will receive about
$16 million on behalf of the un-
incorporated area's population


from state taxes, the county in-
tends to only allocate $3 million
of the money to services for
those residents.
That money provides serv-
ices to the unincorporated areas
that, like city government serv-
ices, are over and above serv-
ices provided by the county gov-
ernment.
Nehr said Palm Harbor has


about 60,000 constituents, mak-
ing up about a third of the
county's unincorporated-area
population. While Nehr doesn't
have an opinion on Palm Har-
bor's incorporation, he said the
residents should be able to de-
cide for themselves.
County figures put the popu-
lation of the combined area, in-
cluding Crystal Beach, East
Lake and Ozona, at 96,000 peo-
ple. By 2025, projections put the
population at 100,000.
If in November, voters ap-
prove, town council elections
would be held in March 2009. The
town would become a legal entity,
start receiving its "Penny for Pinel-
las" money, and begin revenue
sharing and sales tax money.
The Palm Harbor Fire and
Rescue District would continue
providing services, and the
county sheriff's office would
provide police protection.

in identifying suspects in two
South Pasadena bank robberies.

chovia Bank branch at 1101
Pasadena Ave.
Detectives say the suspect
also entered the bank and pre-

to a teller.
The suspect fled on foot with
an undisclosed amount of cash,


and was last seen running be-
hind a shopping center across
the street from the bank.
The suspect is described as a
white male in his late 30s,
about 5'7"-5'9" tall and about
150 pounds. He was last seen
wearing a gray toupee, sunglasses
and a dark gray tweed sports coat.

Lie, cheat?

You could

be a student

athlete


"It ain't a lie till you prove
it" -Anonymous

Cheating, lying and steal-
ing are regretfully per-
ceived to be a prominent
part of the dark side of college
athletics, although I thought they
were rare occurrences.
However, after doing some
research, the dark side is a lot
more insidious than I thought.
Sometimes the irony is not the
act themselves, but the ease to-
day of how some are getting
caught if the participants had
thought it through, we would
never hear about it.
Regretfully, though, when
we hear of these scandals, it
seems more by design for maxi-
mum exposure. It is not the act
of cheating that seems so bad,
but instead how foolish we think
the perpetrators are at getting
caught.
Historically, the public does
not hear of these events until
way after the event, which leaves
some thinking that the dark side
is way, way out of control.
The most glaring example I
thought to date is the Florida
State football team, which will
travel to the Music City Bowl
against Kentucky 25 players
light.
This from ESPN.com: "The
school's investigation found that
a tutor gave students answers
while they were taking tests and
filled in answers on quizzes and
typed papers for students."
According to various
sources, this has occurred since
2006. Why has this been under
wraps until now? ESPN.com
also reported that Vegas has sus-
pended the betting line on the
game.
USF reported recently to the
NCAA that one of its student
athletes took an online exam
DURING a game. The outcome
of that incident is still pending,
but that became public knowl-
edge in a bit more timely fash-
ion.
There have been academic
cheating scandals in various
forms for years, however the
NCAA has been traditionally
slow or simply not forthcoming
at all.
For example, on March 10,
1999, the St. Paul Pioneer Press
reported that "at least 20 men's
basketball players at the Univer-
sity of Minnesota had research
papers, take-home exams or
other course work done for them
during a five-year period."
The story broke thanks to a
letter a graduate received from
the university years after gradu-
ating. The university finally
acted after this story broke.
Perhaps you think that only
those from economically chal-
lenged backgrounds are in-
volved, having no other choice to
stay in school. On Nov. 23,
2002. The W,, ,.iinvi.. Post re-
ported that eight students from
the preparatory Landon School
in Bethesda, Md., admitted to
cheating on the SAT exam.
From The Boston Globe,
Sept. 21, 2007: "Things are get-
ting ugly in the scenic Upper
Connecticut River Valley town of
Hanover, N.H., where as many
as 50 high-school students are
suspected of playing some role


in a cheating scandal that began
with the theft of math and chem-
istry tests shortly before June fi-
nal exams. Residents of the af-
fluent town, which is also the
host community of Dartmouth
College..."
Even those in postgraduate
education have been caught. The
Indianapolis Star on July 14,

Water advisory issued



for Mobbly Bayou


CLEARWATER The
Pinellas County Health Depart-
ment has issued an advisory for
the water at Mobbly Bayou
Preserve, near Oldsmar, based
on the marine water bacterial
indicator recommended by the
EPA.
This area should be consid-
ered a potential health risk to
swimmers.


The Pinellas County Health
Department conducts saltwater
beach testing through the
Healthy Beaches Monitoring
Program.
Water samples are analyzed
for enteric bacteria (both fecal
coliform and enterococci), that
normally inhabit the intestinal
tracts of humans and animals,
and which may cause human


disease, infections or rashes.
The presence of enteric bac-
teria is an indication of fecal
pollution, which may come
from storm water run-off, pets,
wildlife and sewage.
The purpose of the Healthy
Beaches Monitoring Program is
to determine whether Florida
has significant beach water
quality problems.

Port Manatee's new $3.9 million container crane was put into full service Dec. 18 at 7:05 a.m. The first container was filled with 25 tons of
Del Monte honeydew melons from Guatemala.



Port Manatee containerizes


New $3.9 million crane gives

new capability to Tampa Bay port


PALMETTO Port Mana-
tee entered the containerization
era Wednesday when its brand-
new $3.9 million Gottwald mo-
bile harbor container crane
made its first pick from a Del
Monte produce ship.
"We've been waiting a long-
time for this moment and we
owe so much to so many," said
David L. McDonald, executive
director of Port Manatee, and
architect of the landmark deal
that delivered the monster ma-
chine to the port along with
partners Logistec USA and the


Florida Department of Trans-
portation, Dist. 1.
"This crane represents the fu-
ture of Port Manatee," said
Manatee County Port Authority
Chairman Joe McClash. "Its ar-
rival puts the port in a position
to attract new containerized
service, which could dramati-
cally increase port revenues and
provide for the economic vital-
ity of Manatee County."
The crane weighs more than
460 tons. It can lift 100 tons,
which is the equivalent of more
than two Boeing 737 jet air-


planes.
The port currently handles a
modest number of containers,
but it's expecting to rapidly
ramp-up its numbers in the
wake of the crane's first pick.
Officials expect to eventually
move up to 600,000 containers a
year -creating jobs and trading
opportunities for Manatee
County.
The arrival of the crane
couldn't have come at a better
time. Del Monte's five-year port
contract is up for renewal. De-
livering the crane was a Del
Monte prerequisite to renew the
agreement for an additional
five-years.
"The new crane gives us


more flexibility in what we do
and what we load and how we
work with containers," said
Brian Giuliani, Port Manatee
port manager for Del Monte.
The crane was purchased
through a public-private part-
nership with Logistec USA and
the Florida Department of
Transportation, District 1.
The crane is the first of its
kind to be delivered in the
United States.
Originally expected to take
up to five weeks to assemble,
the crane was certified opera-
tional in three weeks and suc-
cessfully completed its first
container pick just five days
later.


Bird-watching event slated New Year's Day


TAMPA Bird-watchers and
nature appreciators are invited to
participate in the Rich Paul New
Year's Day Birding Open,
hosted by the St. Petersburg
Audubon Society, Jan. 1 at Fort
DeSoto County Park.
The Birding Open is a
species-counting competition,
with each person and team par-
ticipating on the honor code.
Bird species located from the
toll bridges of Tierra Verde on
the Pinellas Bayway, Highway
682 south including the
shores, woods, and habitats of
Fort DeSoto County Park will


count towards winning trophies
for most species seen, as team
and individual participants, and
other categories, some of them
"mystery" categories.
Bird species counters will
have the period from 6 a.m. un-
til noon to record their sight-
ings. Then the tally and awards
ceremony will occur at East
Beach Picnic Pavilion 13, where
contestants will have lunch and
share stories of their morning
adventures.
Participants are asked to
make a $20 donation to
Audubon of Florida's Coastal


Islands Sanctuaries Program
and bring their own picnic
lunch.
The New Year's Day Birding
Open has raised over $10,000
for Audubon of Florida's
Coastal Islands Sanctuaries Pro-
gram. Audubon's Sanctuaries
Program works to protect the
colonial waterbirds of Florida
and the habitats that support
them.
For the last two years and
this New Year's Day, the Birding
Open has been dedicated in
memory of Richard T. Paul, the
former sanctuary manager, who


died in 2005 of cancer.
Participants can expect to see
at least 50 species of birds in
this part of southern Pinellas
County in the time frame of the
Birding Open contest.
More experienced bird
watchers may spot over 75
species, including herons,
ducks, sandpipers, warblers and
hawks.
To participate, or for more
information, please contact

University of South Florida
Grace Allen, the wife of the first
University of South Florida
president, died Sunday.


OBITUARY


USF's first


'first lady'


TAMPA Grace Allen was
nicknamed \iii.i/I, Grace" by
an area congressman. According
to friends, neighbors and col-
leagues, she lived up to her name.
As the wife of John Allen, the first
and longest-serving president at
the University of South Florida,
she watched as the university grew
from a few classrooms in a single
building to a top tier research and
teaching university with four cam-
puses.
Grace Allen was 99 years old
when she died shortly before noon
Sunday.
USF President Judy Genshaft
reacted with sadness at the news
of Allen's passing. "The USF fam-
ily has lost one of our true treas-
ures," she said. "USF's heart is
broken today, because we've lost a
woman who has been the core of
the University's founding. Grace
Allen was as much a part of the
university's development as her
husband, John."
"Allen brought critical social
graces, and some keen and clever
behind-the-scenes persuasiveness,"
Genshaft said. "She was highly in-
telligent, remarkable memory, sup-
portive and caring, always watchful
of the University's development
and exhibited pride in its growth."


"Grace Allen was
truly the 'first lady'
of the university."
BETTY CASTOR
USF president, 1994-99


U.S. Rep Sam Gibbons, who
is considered the founder of USF,
said Allen was an extremely intel-
ligent woman who was not shy
about speaking her mind. This
trait led to Gibbons' other, more
ironic, nickname for her, \ikciiil
Grace."
"Dr. (John) Allen was a Quaker
and he would start each meal by
asking for a moment of silent
grace," Gibbons recalled. "When-
ever he said that, I would look at
Grace and smile. I would call her
'Silent Grace' because she would
never be shy about speaking up."
Born Grace Carlton in North
Dakota on June 20, 1908, she
spent her childhood in both North
and South Dakota. She attended
the University of South Dakota
and the University of Minnesota.
She met John Allen at the Uni-
versity of Minnesota and they
were married in 1933. The couple
came to USF from Gainesville in
1957, a year before the university
even had a name and three years
before the first classes.
In July 1960, she invited every
USF wife and female staff mem-
ber to come to her home. Together,
they established the USF
Women's Club, which continues
to this day.
She stood with her husband un-
til his retirement in July 1970 at
the age of 63. John Allen passed
away in December 1982.
Betty Castor, who served as
USF president from 1994 to 1999,
said Grace helped lay the founda-
tion for USF.
"Grace Allen was truly the
'First Lady' of the university,"
Castor said. "She understood the
university and throughout her life
was never far from its heart.

Plan approved

PLAN I From Page 1

It also closes South Ward and Largo Cen-
tral elementary schools and Riviera Middle
School. Clearview Avenue Elementary
School, which was also targeted for closure,
will remain open on a year-to-year basis.
As the plan evolved over the last two
months, incoming kindergarten, grade 6 and
grade 9 students were allowed to attend the
school their older sibling attends under the
outgoing "choice" plan.
Elementary magnet schools will be appli-
cation-only schools. Certain elementary mag-
net schools will have proximity requirements
for applicants.
One part of the plan that remains is open
enrollment. Students who choose a different
school must apply during this period. Stu-
dents will not lose their seat assignment if
they are accepted at the choice school.
The plan will be reviewed each year for
improvements.


Magnet schools criteria
Jameson and Sanderlin Elementary
schools will offer a proximity
preference of 35 percent of the
available seats, per grade level, after
the plan is implemented, to students
living in close proximity.
Campbell Park, Gulfport, Maximo
and Lakewood elementary will accept
applications from areas extending from
Tampa Bay and Interstate 275; west of
Gandy Boulevard; south on U.S. 19,
west on 54th Avenue North; and south
through Cross Bayou and John's Pass
to the Gulf of Mexico. Seats not filled
during the application period will be
offered to nearby students who agree
to magnet program.
Other magnets will accept
applications from students living
anywhere in the district except
International Baccalaureate Programs
and Center for Wellness Programs.


FSU alum presents new home


NFL player Warrick Dunn's gift

a first for 'Homes for the Holidays'


TALLAHASSEE -- Atlanta Falcons
running back Warrick Dunn has pre-
sented a new home to a single father
and his four children in Tallahassee in
a first for "Homes for the Holidays," a
program of the Warrick Dunn Founda-
tion that historically has assisted single
mothers in Tampa, Baton Rouge, La.,
and Atlanta in achieving the American
dream of home ownership.
Dunn greeted FSU employee Osei
Nyahuma, 50, on the front lawn of his
new four-bedroom, two-bathroom
home in the Tallahassee Highlands sub-
division. Nyahuma's home, sponsored
by Big Bend Habitat for Humanity's
"25th Anniversary Build," required him
and his family to complete 400 ,v c.n
equity" hours of work on the house.
"Over the years, I've matured and
realized it is important to help out folks


who are trying to help themselves,"
Dunn said regarding the addition of
single fathers to the "Homes for the
Holidays" program.
Following the presentation, Dunn, a
1997 graduate, received the Circle of
Gold award from the Florida State Uni-
versity Alumni Association in honor of
his leadership and commitment to the
university and the Tallahassee commu-
nity. He joins an elite group of 160 FSU
alumni who have received the award.
"We are proud to award the Circle
of Gold award to Warrick, who epito-
mizes the strength and character that
we think represents the alumni of
FSU," said Gene Walden, interim pres-
ident and CEO of the FSU Alumni As-
sociation.
Nyahuma, anticipating a home in-
spection, was overwhelmed to arrive


to a sea of supporters flooding his new
property. Dunn escorted him through
his fully furnished home, equipped
with everything a first-time home buyer
needs. In-kind sponsor Aaron's Sales &
Lease Ownership provided all furni-
ture, appliances and televisions.
Through title sponsor Prudential Trop-
ical Realty, the house is equipped with
groceries, linens and lawn care prod-
ucts-everything down to the tooth-
brushes.
"I was worried about furnishing our
home," Nyahuma said. "I can't re-
member the last time I sat on a new
couch. This is truly a blessing."
Nyahuma and his children, ages 14-
20, realized the American dream of
home ownership in time for the holi-
days.
With his many philanthropic activ-
ities, Dunn is a candidate for the des-
ignation of Neighborhood MVP of the
Year, a competition sponsored by
Home Depot and the NFL. FSU fans


and alumni can help him win the title
by voting on line or through the War-
rick Dunn Foundation's home page:
www.warrickdunnfoundation.org.
The award recognizes NFL players
who are making a positive impact in
their communities through charitable
programs and contributions. It also di-
rects attention to their alma maters.
Since its inception in 1997, "Homes
for the Holidays" has assisted 74 single
parents and 192 children in Tallahas-
see, Tampa, Baton Rouge, La., and At-
lanta. Of those, Nyahuma is the first
single father to receive assistance-
and the first "Homes for the Holidays"
recipient in Tallahassee.
"Homes for the Holidays" was es-
tablished by the Warrick Dunn Foun-
dation in 1997 as a way to honor the
life of Dunn's mother, Betty Smoth-
ers, a police officer and security guard,
who was killed during a robbery at-
tempt while working as an off-duty po-
lice officer in Baton Rouge.

St. Petersburg
Mayor Rick Baker,
third from left, and
other members of
city council and the
Albert Whitted
Airport community
cut the ribbon
Tuesday on the
airport's new
intermodal
terminal.


Douglas E. Jessmer/Pinellas News


Whitted's new terminal dream a reality


AIRPORT I From Page 1

"We have waited a long time for
this moment, and I know there are
many, many hundreds of people
who've held this dream in their heart
for a long, long time," Bennett said.
"Finally, we have a world-class termi-
nal to call our home."
The two-story facility is leased by


St. Petersburg Flying Services, the air-
port's fixed-base operator, and will be
home to a rental-car agency and to a
restaurant on the upper floor.
AOPA's efforts helped pass the 2003
referendum, in which 70 percent of the
city's voters agreed to keep the airport
in operation. But the aviation commu-
nity's advocacy of the airport contin-
ues.


Commission proposes


rules on net metering


TALLAHASSEE Florida's Public
Service Commission today proposed
amendments to a rule addressing net me-
tering and expedited interconnection stan-
dards. The amendments promote develop-
ment and expedite interconnection of
customer-owned renewable generation, as
well as minimize costs for customers at-
tempting to interconnect to their utility.
"These changes are intended to encour-
age development of customer-owned re-
newable generation, which protects the en-
vironment and stimulates the state's
economy," Commission Chairman Lisa Po-
lak Edgar said. "These amendments will
help offset electric consumption and di-
versify the types of fuel used to generate
electricity in Florida, and provide renew-
able energy alternatives for agriculture, res-
idential consumers and businesses."
The rule amendments proposed today
include: (1) expanding the size of eligible
systems from 10 kilowatts to 2 megawatts;
(2) expanding the type of eligible systems
from solely photovoltaic to all renewable
technologies; (3) expediting the intercon-
nection of customer-owned renewable gen-
eration; and (4) allowing customers to off-
set consumption through net metering.
Increased development of renewable
generation expected as a result of the
amended rule will enhance fuel diversity
and reliability, benefitting ratepayers and
utilities. Customer-owned renewable gen-


eration is an effective conservation measure
by reducing the amount of electricity pur-
chased from utilities.
If no comments or requests for hearing
are received, the rule amendments as pro-
posed will be filed for adoption with the
Secretary of State.



"These changes are
intended to encourage
development of
customer-owned
renewable generation,
which protects the
environment and
stimulates the state's
economy."

Chairwoman



The PSC exercises regulatory authority
over utilities in the areas of rate base/eco-
nomic regulation; competitive market over-
sight; and monitors safety, reliability, and

"A mile of asphalt on a road takes
you one mile," Dunn said. "A mile of
pavement on a runway will take you
anywhere in the world."
The city received a $3.2 million
Florida Department of Transportation
grant, released in portions over a six-
year period.
John Galbraith of Galbreaith Prop-
erties provided the city with an interest-


free loan for FDOT's portion of the
project funding, to speed construction.
Galbraith also donated $400,000 half
the city's matching funds to the FDOT
grant and the city contributed the re-
mainder.
The $800,000 aircraft ramp was
paid with a 95-percent Federal Aviation
Administration grant, with the city pay-
ing the remainder.


See CHEAT I Page 7

2007, reported: "Penalties set
for students in dental school
scandal. The final judgments are
in for the students facing disci-
plinary action for involvement
in a cheating scandal at the Indi-
ana University School of Den-
tistry. Twenty-four students re-
ceived suspensions ranging
from three months to two years,
according to an e-mail circu-
lated to faculty earlier this week
by Dean Lawrence Goldblatt.
An additional 18 students, who


knew of the illicit activity but
did not report it also face sanc-
tions."
Now that was a story with
some bite to it. (Sorry, I could
not resist.)
So, does cheating, lying
and stealing end with academia?
Not if you read the recent re-
ports of White House legal
counsel being involved in the
destruction of the CIA interro-
gation tapes. But what we know
now is that they conveyed their
legal advice. You can do it-just
don't get caught.

THANKS I From Page 3

clothes my mother got for me
were things I wouldn't wear.
I'm always afraid I'm go-
ing to get something I don't
want or wouldn't use. I've
been pretty lucky, outside of
Mom, God bless her, but I
guess parents don't always
stay as connected as they once
did. Guess I oughta overlook
that.
It's always more fun to
give than get. That said, it's
going to be difficult this year
to figure out what will bowl
someone over, you know, that
gift that a year later, someone's
still raving about. (In a good
way, of course.) I'm working
on it.
For me, "new Mustang"
comes to mind, but that's a lit-
tle farfetched. But if you're in-
clined, a white GT convertible
with a tan interior is fine, un-
less you can customize with a


navy blue top and interior.
A new laptop computer
would be on my list. Macin-
tosh, of course.
But somehow, those things
don't seem fulfilling. Maybe as
I'm getting older, I feel some
antipathy about material
things. I'm more interested, I
guess, in ensuring I'm with
family, and that the family
members who aren't close are
at least intact and enjoying
some semblance of the season.
Maybe you feel the same
way.
Tuesday's Christmas. En-
joy it with those you care for.
It's not all about the gifts, un-
less you count as gifts the
memories you'll make. And
don't forget why we really cel-
ebrate.
