Public meeting will help shape redevelopment proposal


By DOUGLAS E. JESSMER
The Pinellas News
ST. PETERSBURG By now, you've
heard about the plan to develop a new
Downtown ballpark for the Tampa Bay
Rays, as well as the plan to redevelop
Tropicana Field.
But at 6 p.m. Wednesday, inside the
Trop, you'll get a turn at bat during a pub-


lic meeting.
More than a year of confidential dis-
cussions between the team, the City of St.
Petersburg and state representatives
ended in late November, when the team
unveiled plans to build a new baseball-
only facility on the site of Al Lang Field.
The team also announced plans,
alongside a real-estate developer, to reuse
the 86-acre Tropicana site as a residen-


tial, retail and entertainment area.
So city organizers can prepare, atten-
dees for Wednesday's meeting are asked
to respond by Monday via telephone or
e-mail, either at 727-893-7100 or busi-
ness@stpete.org.
Behind closed doors, the team and the
city evaluated financing alternatives for
the proposed new 34,000-seat ballpark. A
large contribution from the team will be


augmented by proceeds from the Tropi-
cana Field site.
The plan also calls for $60 million in
state tax money, though the Rays insist
they won't seek new or additional taxes
to fund the new ballpark and that Pinel-
las County taxpayers won't see a cent of
difference in their local tax bills.

Barricaded man arrested after shooting at deputies


LARGO After shooting at
sheriff's deputies, a Seminole
man was charged three times
with attempted first-degree mur-
der of a law-enforcement officer.
Deputies responded to a 911
call hang-up from a residence in
the 13500 block of Park Boule-
vard at about 2:45 a.m. Dec. 30.
They found Todd Mathew Clark,


30, who spoke to
the deputies
briefly, then went
back into the
home and
opened fire on
them.
The deputies
returned fire be-
fore withdrawing


team members and negotiators
arrived on scene.
At about 8:40 a.m., Clark was
nabbed after SWAT team mem-
bers drove an armored rescue ve-
hicle up to the house to establish
verbal contact. Before deputies
could talk to Clark, he fled the
house from a second-story win-
dow, jumping to a lower roof, then


to the ground. Deputies say Clark
shot at police again, and one
deputy returned fire.
Sheriff's detectives say that
Clark who has no previous
criminal record was under the
influence of marijuana and sev-
eral prescription drugs during the
incident, and that he didn't be-
lieve the first responding deputies


were law enforcement officers.
The incident is under investi-
gation, and the apprehension is
under routine review by the Sher-
iff's administrative investigations
board.
The only injury was to one
deputy, whose right hand was cut
by a sliver of broken glass from
Clark's front door.


By weekend,
region starts
warming up

ST. PETERSBURG
P inellas County
residents braced
Wednesday for the
coldest weather in at least
five years, heeding the
milder of two freeze
warnings issued for the
Tampa Bay area.
Wednesday's warning was
"freeze" for Pinellas County and
"hard freeze" for as much as 11
hours for every other county in
the area.
At 4 a.m. Thursday, forecasters
said the temperature would reach
34 two degrees above freezing -
but feel like 23. It's been more
than 25 years since temperatures
dipped below freezing in Pinellas
County.
At least one newspaper -
Florida Today in Brevard County
- predicted there'd be snowfall in
the Sunshine State.
As of our press time, snow cer-
tainly didn't fly across the Pinellas
peninsula, but the chilly tempera-
tures had residents covering out-
door plants, caring for outside an-
imals and ensuring water pipes
didn't freeze and burst.

Keeping those pesky resolutions


Whether it's saving more, losing
weight or learning new things,
experts say: Be reasonable


By MELISSA McCARTNEY
The Pinellas News

Lose weight. Save money.
Learn to change a tire.
Those are all typical new year's
resolutions that get broken, usu-
ally by the end of January.
"Resolutions are just too
vague," Pinellas County Health
Department spokesperson Jeanine
Mallory said. "It's too broad. Peo-
ple should be more specific and
make goals that are measurable, as
opposed to a resolution."
Every year a group of hopefuls
hold up their right hand with the
left hand over their heart vowing
they will lose a lot of weight in a


short period of time, a pledge that
weight-loss specialists say is a
setup for failure.
Jenny Craig spokeswoman
Stephani Spangler says self-moni-
toring and realistic goals are keys
to losing weight. Instead of swear-
ing to lose 40 pounds, set goals of
10 pounds.
In 2008, Spangler said, people
should make time to learn from
weaknesses and adjust goals. Fo-
cus on what went well and choose
alternative strategies if needed.
"Try making a goal of walking
5,000 steps a day and get a pe-
dometer," Mallory said. "Next
week, try 6,000, write things down
and watch your progress."


Tips for keeping
your goals
What some experts say:
Be realistic
Make short term goals
Monitor your progress
Reward yourself
responsibly
Celebrate your
successes, big or small
Learn from lapses in
progress



Financial security is the goal
for some.
"Building savings is one of the
most important things people can
do," Raymond James Financial
Senior Vice President Jeff Hearn
said "It's important to have 3-6
months worth of savings. That


way, when the air conditioning
goes or the car breaks down, you're
paying out of pocket, not running
up a credit card."
If you're 50 or older with a
401k retirement plan, you can add
another $5,000 to your plan. Be-
tween now and age 65, at 6 percent
interest, that investment will make
$500,000. That's about $2,500 per
month if you retire at age 65.
Planning for Christmas
throughout the year can also help
with the financial burden the holi-
days may bring, Hearn added.
"Keep Christmas cards. Make
lists and see who you did and did
not buy gifts for," Hearn said.
"Shop all year long, and then
write down where you put the
gifts."
When December rolls around,
he said, the gift load and the
holiday bills won't be so
heavy.

Watch for

headlines

like these

this year...

So we've somehow stum-
bled into 2008, and every-
one seems to still be here,
all in one piece.
It's not like eight years ago,
when everyone seemed to stock-
pile food, ammunition and other
supplies to weather the 2000
date-rollover panic-that-tumed-
out-to-be-nothing, which we all
remember as "Y2K."
Instead, when the ball
dropped a few days ago, the only
people I saw locked and loaded
were people I celebrated the new
year with locked in the house,
and maybe a little loaded.
Now that we've survived
Jan. 1, let's look at the top 10
headlines I'd like to see for
2008. If you agree or disagree, or
have some ideas of your own, I'd
normally say "too bad," but I'd
really like to know what you
think so e-mail me at
doug@pinellas-news.com. Re-
ally.
10. Rays win American
League East title. It's not that
the Rays are all that, don't get
me wrong it's that I despise the
Yankees, and despite my other
half's devotion to the Red Sox, I
must admit I'd like to see them
go down in defeat, too. And
frankly, if the Rays want a new
stadium, the team's sales job will
be much easier with a winner on
the field.
It's not that the Rays have a
roster chock full of hapless play-
ers. There's some potential there.
Really.
All that said....
9. Cleveland Indians win
World Series; Rays defeated in
A.L. title series. Curse of Rocky
Colavito no more, as the war-
riors of Lake Erie take their first
world championship since 1948.
If Boston and the White Sox can
do it, the Tribe can.
8. U.S. 19 overpass con-
struction complete from Pinel-
las Park to Tarpon Springs.
OK, this is nothing we'll see
overnight, but wouldntcha like it
if it could be? Drive through the
Bryan Dairy intersection and you
probably get the eery feeling
you've seen that scene before -
like, oh, where the Northeast
Coachman Road and Sunset
Point Road overpasses are now.
Get it done, already!
There's a handful of stop
lights I know I'd love to see
yanked RIGHT NOW between
Ulmerton Road and Gulf To Bay.
And while I'm complaining
about driving from St. Pete to
Clearwater and vice versa...
7. New expressway
planned between St. Pete and
Clearwater. Why hasn't this
happened? Why hasn't anyone
thought of it? There's no quick
way to get from one to the other.
Hey, FDOT, are you reading?
Time to get those 1-575 signs
ready, guys.
And as for what's on the
road, a pet peeve comes to mind,
but remember I'm from the Rust
Belt when I say this:
6. More Americans buy
U.S. cars. Many consumers
won't even look at a car made by
the home team. Consumer Re-
ports magazine was outed as a
fraud this year, finally, after they
revealed that they rated Toyotas
higher than other makes without
even looking at them.


Recalls? About the same as
for the domestic nameplates, it
appears. Initial quality? Who
was better Volkswagen or Mer-
cury? (J.D. Power's answer: It
wasn't the Germans.)
We wonder why our econ-
omy has gone to the dogs, all the
while pushing the pedal down on
big reasons why foreign steel

Exhibit shows papal



relations to other faiths


Florida Holocaust Museum
display of 'Blessing' opens Jan. 13


ST. PETERSBURG Pope
John Paul II encouraged all peo-
ple of all religions to work to-
gether toward world peace. The
exhibition A Blessing To One
Another: Pope John Paul II and
the Jewish People opens Jan. 13
at the Florida Holocaust Museum
in downtown St. Petersburg.
The exhibit, which organizers
say is an example of the late
leader's mission, will run through
April 13.
The title of the exhibit comes
from the papal appeal on the 50th
anniversary of the Warsaw
Ghetto uprising: "As Christians
and Jews, following the example
of the faith of Abraham, we are


called to be a blessing to the
world. This is the common task
awaiting us. It is therefore neces-
sary for us, Christians and Jews,
to first be a blessing to one an-
other."
The exhibit, created by Xavier
University in Cincinnati, is a
multi-media, interactive exhibit
featuring video footage, sculp-
ture, documents, artifacts, and
photographs. It is also the first
exhibition of its kids to explain
the historical relationship be-
tween the Catholic and Jewish
faiths.
Highlights of the exhibit fea-
ture period artifacts from the
World War II era, as well as oth-


-; ~ ers including
the cane used
by the Pope on
his trip to the
Holy Land in
2002; the
biretta worn by
John Paul II him when he
was named a
cardinal; the
stole he wore at the Assissi Day
of Peace in 2002 and a bronze
cast of Pope John Paul's hand.
The exhibition chronicles the
Pope's personal and public life
and features a time line that eas-
ily guides the Museum guest.
The exhibit begins with the
Pope's childhood as Karol J6zef
Wojtyla and highlights the life-
long friendship with Jewish
childhood friend Jerzy Kluger,
who would ultimately play a crit-


ical role in the Pope's future. The
timeline continues through World
War II and illustrates the contrast
between the Pope, who was
forced to study in secret during
the night, and his Jewish friends
who suffered far worse fates. The
exhibit takes the viewer through
the Pope's rise from priest to
bishop and then to cardinal, dur-
ing which he played a key role in
the preliminary changes in rela-
tionships between faiths. The
timeline culminates during the
years of his papacy.
This exhibit is locally spon-
sored in part by the Roman
Catholic Diocese of St. Peters-
burg. The exhibition was created
by Xavier University of Cincin-
nati, Hillel Jewish Student Center
of Cincinnati, and The Shtetl
Foundation of New York.


St. Pete Beach house fire quickly put out

Before you

build it,

they should

come first

Some of us wonder if the

Rays' front office really
thought though construct-
ing a new stadium in downtown
St. Petersburg, where a ball field
has existed since 1929.
That field is dormant, except
for spring training. So instead of
waiting four years to find all the
problems such as not enough
nearby parking, street closings
including Bayshore Boulevard,
traffic congestion, lack of pedes-
trian access, foul balls hitting
parked cars, baseball fans and
others suffering heat-related in-
juries, crazed fans diving into
Tampa Bay next to the sewer
outlet, only to disturb newly
planted sea grass why not play
a twi-night double hitter, say, in
the third week of July?
That way, the team can dry-
run all the problems and see if
the fans show up, if not for the
first game, possibly the second.
The Rays are scheduled to
play Oakland on Tuesday, July
22, at 7:10 p.m. and again on
Wednesday at 12:40 p.m., so
Oakland can get back to the west
coast and the Rays can head to
Kansas City.
A Wednesday day game is
not a big draw, and the flight
west does not leave players re-
covery time before the next
game and switching from artifi-
cial turf to playing on grass. So
play a double-header at Al Lang
and get a good rest before
Kansas City.


If fans don't like
the way the game's
going, maybe they
can jump in the
bay.


Al Lang Stadium or
Florida Power Park at Al Lang
Field holds 7,227 fans, which
should be ample capacity for a
Tuesday night game on a hot,
humid July night, given the
Rays' attendance history.
Should the first game start
an hour earlier, fans would need
to arrive in downtown between
5-6 p.m., coinciding with Down-
town workers leaving for the day
and others coming from work to
their Downtown high-rise con-
dos. Plus, there are the students
trying to park for evening classes
at USF St. Petersburg.
Even though 7,227 would
represent only 25 percent of the
maximum impact of fans and
traffic, the data and revenue the
city would gain from traffic cita-
tions alone should more than off-
set the additional cost of police,
fire and rescue response.
Couple that with baseball
fans trying to leave and arrive
between games vying for the few
precious parking spots and seats
at restaurants and bars, and it
should make an evening in Los
Angeles expressway traffic look
like a cake walk by comparison.
The Rays and city officials
would have the data and time to
make changes, so when the new
stadium is built with 32,000 fans
coming to a game, it would still
be a postcard experience.
It will coincide with the
completion of thousands of
downtown condominiums now


under construction and 4,000
students commuting to the USF
campus for classes.
So maybe they should try
this again when the Red Sox
come to town, and put up addi-
tional, temporary bleachers in
Tampa Bay. If they did not like
the way the game was going,
maybe those fans could just go
jump into the bay.

TROPICANA I From Page 1

All the plans hinge on St. Pe-
tersburg voters' approval of the new
ballpark, a decision slated for the
November election.
Tropicana Field was completed
in 1990 in the hopes of drawing a
major-league team to the area.
Tampa Bay was awarded a major-
league team in 1995, and Tropi-
cana underwent an $85 million ren-
ovation before the Rays then the
Devil Rays began play in 1998.
Hines Interests Limited Part-
nership senior vice president
Michael Harrison said in Novem-
ber that the Tropicana site would be
pedestrian-oriented, and redevel-
oped with properties at various
price points. As many as 900 new


houses are on the drawing board.
Hines is the development company
the Rays partnered with to draw
plans for the existing stadium land.
Tropicana, an air-conditioned,
domed stadium, was the last base-
ball stadium built before the ball-
park renaissance began with Oriole
Park at Camden Yards in Balti-
more. By contrast, the Rays' pro-
posal has a retractable fabric roof
that will cable up and down with
the help of a 325-foot-tall tower
beyond center field.
The proposed ballpark will be
built on the site of Al Lang Field,
a spring-training ballpark for nine
teams since 1914. The field has
been the home of Rays spring
training since the team's incep-
tion.

State officials announce $6M insurance settlement


TALLAHASSEE Attorney
General Bill McCollum, Chief
Financial Officer Alex Sink and
Insurance Commissioner Kevin
McCarty today announced that
Florida and nine additional states
have reached a settlement with a
large insurance carrier involved
in a "pay-to-play" scheme or-
chestrated by insurance broker
Marsh & McLennan. The Trav-
elers Companies, Inc. will pay a
multi-state task force $6 million
to resolve allegations of im-
proper business steering in the
commercial insurance market
that resulted in higher premiums


being paid by Florida govern-
mental entities, companies and
nonprofit organizations.
"Policyholders have every
right to expect fair and honest
treatment from their insurers,"
said Attorney General McCol-
lum. "We will continue to ag-
gressively demand accountability
and transparency from the insur-
ance industry in Florida."
Travelers allegedly conspired
with Marsh & McLennan and
other brokers to create the illu-
sion of a competitive bidding
process by submitting fake bids
even though the brokers had al-


ready determined which insurer
would receive a particular poli-
cyholder's business. Travelers
paid "contingent commissions"
to these brokers, and these com-
missions were not disclosed to
policyholders. The Florida At-
torney General's Office, Depart-
ment of Financial Services and
Office of Insurance Regulation
will receive approximately $1.1
million of the settlement which
will fund a reimbursement pool
for affected public entity policy-
holders and repay the state agen-
cies' costs of investigation.
"Policyholders deserve to


know exactly what they are pay-
ing for and that they are not pay-
ing for hidden charges," said
CFO Sink, who oversees the De-
partment of Financial Services.
"I applaud this settlement and
commend everyone who worked
to make it happen."
"Florida's policyholders de-
serve nothing less than full dis-
closure in insurance transac-
tions," said Florida Insurance
Commissioner Kevin McCarty.
"This settlement continues
Florida's progress toward estab-
lishing a national standard for
transparency in insurance trans-


actions and reinforces our com-
mitment to protecting Florida
consumers."
In addition to the financial
settlement, Travelers has agreed
to a consent decree and final
judgment that will provide com-
prehensive injunctive relief, in-
cluding a requirement to disclose
compensation that Travelers pays
to insurance brokers. The com-
pany will also be required to dis-
close to all customers and
prospective policyholders the
ranges and averages of payments
it made to insurance brokers on
specific lines of insurance.

Today is


deadline for


college exam


registration




The next ACT exam will be adminis-
tered on Feb. 9.
Students who wish to take the college
admission and placement exam on this date
must register no later than today, which is
the deadline for having their registration
postmarked.
There is a late registration postmark
deadline of Jan. 18; an extra fee is charged
for late registrations. Students can register
online at www.actstudent.org, or registra-
tion forms can be picked up at high school
counseling offices.
The cost is $30 for the traditional ACT
and $44.50 for the ACT Plus Writing. Some
colleges require ACT's optional Writing
Test score, but many don't, so students
should find out the requirements of prospec-
tive colleges before registering for the
exam. ACT scores are accepted by all ma-
jor four-year colleges and universities
across the United States.
ACT's Website ( www.actstudent.org )
has information about the ACT and how to
prepare for it, including sample tests. It also
provides information on college planning,
financial aid, career planning, and the op-
portunity to order inexpensive test prep ma-
terials.





NASA: Asteroid


odds for Mars


impact heighten



WASHINGTON Astronomers funded
by NASA are monitoring the trajectory of
an asteroid estimated to be 164 feet wide
that is expected to cross Mars' orbital path
early next year.
Observations provided by the as-
tronomers and analyzed by NASA's Near-
Earth Object Office at the Jet Propulsion
Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif., indicate the
object may pass within 30,000 miles of
Mars at about 6 a.m. Jan. 30.
Based on the latest analysis, astronomers
say the odds of the asteroid's impact on
Mars are now about 1 in 28.
kiilI now asteroid 2007 WD5 is about
half-way between Earth and Mars and clos-
ing the distance at a speed of about 27,900
miles per hour," said Don Yeomans, manager
of the Near Earth Object Office at JPL. "Over
the next five weeks, we hope to gather more
information from observatories so we can
further refine the asteroid's trajectory."
NASA detects and tracks asteroids and
comets passing close to Earth. The Near
Earth Object Observation Program, com-
monly called "Spaceguard," plots the or-
bits of these objects to determine if any
could be potentially hazardous to our planet.
Asteroid 2007 WD5 was first discovered
on Nov. 20, 2007, by the NASA-funded
Catalina Sky Survey and put on a "watch
list" because its orbit passes near Earth.
Further observations from both the NASA-
funded Spacewatch at Kitt Peak, Ariz., and
the Magdalena Ridge Observatory in New
Mexico gave scientists enough data to de-
termine that the asteroid was not a danger to
Earth, but could potentially impact Mars.
This makes it a member of an interesting
class of small objects that are both near
Earth objects and "Mars crossers."

Stray bullets hit two


Pinellas News Staff Report

ST. PETERSBURG Two
people got more than they bar-
gained for this New Years' Eve,
when they were hit by stray bul-
lets. Police described both in-
juries as superficial, requiring mi-
nor medical attention.


David Tyson Mink, 23, of
Clearwater, who police said was
in St. Petersburg visiting friends
for the holiday, walked along the
700 block of 3rd Avenue South
when something hit him hard in
the shoulder and he fell to the
ground.
Thinking it was just a stray


fireworks shell, he continued
walking until a friend spotted the
bullet wound.
After having the bullet re-
moved, Mink said he wanted to
keep it as a souvenir for him-
self.
Capricia Woodward ,14, was
sitting outside a home at 2303 7th


Crocodiles are among species protected under new Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission rules.


St. S. around 12:35 a.m. when a
bullet struck her. The bullet
lodged itself in the upper area of
her left eye.
She was taken to All Chil-
dren's Hospital, where the small
caliber bullet was removed.
No arrests have been made and
there are no suspects.

TALLAHASSEE The
Florida Fish and Wildlife Con-
servation Commission (FWC)
has established new rules for
people who possess or exhibit
wildlife that recently came into
effect or will become effective at
the beginning of 2008.
As of Jan. 1, people licensed
to possess captive wildlife, non-
native venomous reptiles or
Reptiles of Concern must have a
Captive Wildlife Critical Inci-
dent and Disaster Plan. This plan
outlines how owners or ex-
hibitors should secure or evacu-
ate their animals in the event of
natural disasters and critical in-
cidents. Additionally, people li-
censed to possess or exhibit
Class I wildlife, nonnative ven-
omous reptiles or Reptiles of
Concern must report any escape
immediately to the FWC's Divi-
sion of Law Enforcement.
Class I wildlife such as li-
ons, bears, crocodiles, chim-
panzees and rhinoceros are de-
fined as wildlife posing a
significant danger to people.
"These new rules are for the
protection and welfare of peo-
ple and the wildlife," said Capt.
Linda Harrison of FWC's Inves-
tigations Section. "We hope to
prevent problems. The require-
ment of this plan gives permit-
tees something to think about.
If an escape or natural disaster
should occur, it is better to be
prepared to adequately respond
to the situation."
Exhibiting wildlife will re-
quire some establishments and
private wildlife owners to pay
more. In 2007, the bond for ex-
hibiting venomous reptiles in-
creased from $1,000 to $10,000.
Effective Feb. 1, people or busi-
nesses exhibiting Class I captive
wildlife will be required to pro-
vide a surety bond or a financial
responsibility guarantee of
$10,000 or maintain $2 million
in general comprehensive liabil-
ity insurance, with $2 million


required per occurrence.
Anyone who possesses a
Class I wildlife permit with
limited exceptions now must
have a minimum of 5 acres of
property. Additionally, facilities
housing Class I captive wildlife
cannot be in areas zoned solely
for residential use.
Class II wildlife also can pose
a danger to people. They include
many species of monkeys, bob-
cats, cougars, wolves, coyotes
and caiman. Class II wildlife
owners must now have a mini-
mum of 2/2 acres. The FWC will
require substantial experience
and specific cage and facility re-
quirements to be met before it
will issue a permit.
Nonnative venomous reptiles
are all species of venomous


snakes and lizards that do not
occur naturally in Florida. Rep-
tiles of Concern are the Indian or
Burmese python, African rock
python, amethystine python,
reticulated python, green ana-
conda and Nile monitor lizard.
People possessing any ven-
omous reptiles or Reptiles of
Concern must be permitted, pay-
ing a fee of $100 per year. They
also must meet new, stricter
caging and facility requirements.
"Some of these reptile
species pose a threat to human
life or Florida's native species,"
Harrison said. "Obviously, ven-
omous reptiles can be hazardous
to human health. Nonnative
species, which have been re-
leased into the wild and thrived,
may potentially wreak havoc on
native species, which are falling
prey to them."
People who possess ven-
omous reptiles are now required


to mark cages and enclosures
with a card stating, "Danger,
Venomous Reptile." The card
must identify the reptile, and it
also must accompany the reptile
when it is removed from its
cage. A bite or exposure proto-
col is required, which provides
the name of an emergency con-
tact and information on what to
do should a bite occur.
People who own nonnative
venomous reptiles or Reptiles of
Concern for personal use must
have the animals permanently
identified. Nonnative venomous
reptiles must be identified by
photograph or by implantation
of a passive integrated transpon-
der (PIT) tag, also referred to as
a microchip. Reptiles of Con-
cern must be permanently iden-


tified by implantation of a PIT
tag. The PIT tag number and
specimen information must be
maintained in the owner's
records.
Owners of any nonnative
venomous reptiles or Reptiles of
Concern acquired prior to Jan. 1,
2008, will have until July 1 to
meet the PIT tagging require-
ment. Any specimens acquired
after Jan. 1 must be permanently
identified when the animal is ac-
quired.
People possessing venomous
reptiles or Reptiles of Concern
are also required to keep records
of changes in inventory, which
are a result of births, deaths, ac-
quisition, sales or transfers.
Records must be readily avail-
able for inspection by FWC per-
sonnel. These records also must
be submitted to the FWC.
People who sell venomous
reptiles or Reptiles of Concern


must submit these records twice
a year: once upon application
and again six months later. Peo-
ple who possess venomous rep-
tiles or Reptiles of Concern for
personal use must submit these
records upon application and
when there is an inventory
change.
On July 1, 2007, red-eared
slider turtles (Trachemys scripta
elegans) became listed as a Con-
ditional Species. People who ac-
quired red-eared slider turtles af-
ter July 1, 2007, must have a
permit. No permit will be issued
for personal possession.
People who possess red-eared
sliders acquired before July 1,
2007, may keep those specimens
without a permit until they are
legally transferred or disposed
of. After July 1, 2008, however,
no one may have a red-eared
slider as a pet that is less than 4
inches in size. Those owning the
turtles legally may not allow
them to reproduce, and all eggs
must be destroyed.
It is illegal to release any
nonnative species into the wild
in Florida. As of this year, penal-
ties for certain captive-wildlife-
law violations have increased,
and in some instances, people
who repeatedly violate captive
wildlife laws and rules can be
charged with a felony.
"In a situation where we have
a repeat offender of captive
wildlife rules, the perpetrator
will face increased minimum
fines or penalties for additional
convictions. Repeat offenders
may even lose their license or
permit," Harrison said. "In some
instances, the perpetrator could
be charged with a third-degree
felony, with a fine of up to
$5,000 and possible imprison-
ment for up to five years, al-
though in most situations, that
would not be the case."
"We would prefer to educate
people about responsibly own-
ing and exhibiting wildlife."

that all but killed the domestic
steel industry and foreign cars
only perceived to be better. (If
they were really better, why
are they designing, engineering
and building more of them
stateside, using that suppos-
edly inferior American know-
how and labor? Are we really
just suckers for a foreign name
and for throwing money at for-
eign investors? Yeah, Ameri-
cans are working, but the prof-
its aren't staying here. And just
wait until the Chinese start im-
porting cars.)
I respect people's choice
to drive what they want. I just
have a hard time watching peo-
ple put American flag decals
on them. I wish the money was
put where their free speech is -
do they know their Kia pur-
chase helped dig a bigger trade
