Last-minute reminders for Tuesday's election I


New Rays

ballpark

price tag:


* ...if the city finances the project
with 30-year bonds, a Downtown

residents group tells city council


By DOUGLAS E. JESSMER
The Pinellas News
ST. PETERSBURG Downtown residents
say a waterfront ballpark for the Rays is a bad
idea, and a study they presented St. Peters-
burg's city council this week tells why.
Council voted 7-1 to seek developers' pro-
posals for the 85-acre Tropicana Field property
this week. The sale of that property is the
linchpin of the downtown ballpark plan, which
would replace Al Lang Field with a $450-mil-
lion, open-air facility.
"After considerable analysis, it is our con-
clusion that the proposal evinces an idea fraught
with peril and not in the best interests of the res-
idents of the City of St. Petersburg," wrote Emil
Pavone, the president of the St. Petersburg
Downtown Residents Civic Association. "The
plain and simple fact, which cannot be masked
by any amount of financial equivocation, is that
every penny of the $450 million will have to
come from the taxpayers of St. Petersburg."
The study says a municipal bond issue for


"Every penny... will have
to come from the taxpayers
of St. Petersburg."

St. Petersburg Downtown Residents Assn.

the combined project would ultimately cost
taxpayers as much as $825 million.
The association asked council members to
quash any further consideration of the plan, and
insist the Rays stay at Tropicana Field. The
group's study suggests that if the Trop is not vi-
able, the team look at land on the city's north-
eastern edge, where fans from Tampa and Clear-
water could more easily attend games.
Council members agreed that the request
for proposals would only move forward if vot-
ers approve in November the plan for a new
stadium at the waterfront site.

The cover letter of the Downtown Residents Civic Association study to St. Petersburg's city council summarizes the 21-page report.


What Downtown residents see

as downsides to the Rays' plan


CRIME: Violent crime Downtown has been on
the rise, members of the association say,
adding that baseball crowds 81 nights a year
may attract criminals who seek targets of
opportunity.
PARKING: The association disagrees with the
Rays assertion that there are 12,000 parking
spaces within a 15-minute walk of the
proposed stadium. The claim "is ludicrous on
its face and appears to be so recognized even
by the Rays," the group says, adding the team
plans to shuttle fans from parking lots on the
site of Tropicana Field..
ENVIRONMENTAL HAZARDS: The cables that


will hold the canvas roof over the proposed
ballpark pose a danger to birds, the study
says, as it's "strung like a net 32 stories tall
across the east-west flyway of many of the
area's birds." The cables will stretch to a 320-
foot concrete mast in the outfield, taller than
some Downtown buildings.
TOXIC WASTE ON TROPICANA FIELD SITE:
The Tropicana Field site contains toxic waste,
the association says, citing news coverage
from the mid-1990s. The waste is sealed
under the parking lots, the group says.

A CONCERN

Less tax money, decreasing
property values may force
hard look at Gulfport budget

A look at each of the candidates. Page 4


By DOUGLAS E. JESSMER
Gilbert The Pinellas News
ST. PETERSBURG Thanks to decreasing tax
revenues and property values, funding of city pro-
grams will be Gulfport's biggest future challenge,
city council candidates believe.
Two seats are up for grabs. In Ward 1, florist
Rick P. Gilbert and former city employee and real-
estate agent Judy Ryerson will face off. Ward 3 in-
Leiner cumbent Councilman Robert E. Worthington faces a
challenge from attorney Angela L. Leiner.
Ryerson, who worked for the Gulfport city gov-
emrnment for two decades, and serves on three city
boards, said, "Most people are unaware of the large
amount of employee time and budgetary money that
cities have no control over because of federal and
state unfunded mandates for reports and work every
year."
Ryerson She said through local government and the
League of Cities, some of those mandates can be
fought and eliminated, freeing up city money.
"At the same time, we must be aware of our old
infrastructure, like sewer lines and water lines, that
must be attended to," she said, "keeping our own po-
lice and fire departments and meeting the needs of all
of our citizens until funding becomes available."
Leiner said she'd study the city budget to reallo-
cate funds and find alternative ways to raise rev-

EARLY VOTING

Turnout numbers up

from 2004 election


By COLLEEN KREPSTEKIES
The Pinellas News
ST. PETERSBURG Several
thousand voters have cast presi-
dential-primary ballots since early
voting began Jan. 14.
As of Tuesday afternoon, the
Pinellas County Supervisor of
Elections office received 4,727
votes, compared to 1,130 in 2004.
The primary election, which
includes candidates in Clearwa-
ter, Gulfport and Safety Harbor
and referendums in South
Pasadena and Redington Shores,
is Tuesday.
Supervisor of Elections
spokeswoman Nancy Whitlock


said the office won't know what
Republican and Democrat turnout
will be until after the ballots are
cast.
Democrat turnout may be
lighter Jan. 29 since the election
will not produce delegates for the
party's national convention, a
punishment by the national party
for Florida's earlier primary date.
Whitlock said the elections office
fielded some phone calls from
voters who asked if their ballot
would count, and the office has
responded by telling voters about
other decisions on the ballot, in-
cluding the statewide property-
tax referendum and school tax re-
newal.

You say you

don't want

to vote?

WHAT?

I'm willing to bet no one
reads this column. I'm not
sure I would either, knowing
what I'm going to write about
today, unless you're on the fence
about going to the polls Tuesday
or if you're planning not to go at
all.
If that sounds like you, ARE
YOU NUTS? I mean, ARE YOU
REALLY THAT WILLING TO
LET YOUR OPINION NOT
MATTER?
That's just infuriating. I'm
angry now. I need to go take a
walk for a few minutes. I'll be
right back.





OK, I'm back. Feeling bet-
ter.
This is still a democracy,
right? At least until Hillary Clin-
ton's elected, anyway, your voice
will be heard Tuesday whether
it's the continued county schools
tax or the statewide property tax
referendum, or the mayor and
council races in Clearwater,
Safety Harbor or Gulfport, or the
Redington Shores and South
Pasadena charter amendments.
That statewide property tax
vote alone should mobilize you.
If you're a Democrat, it's
true your presidential-primary
vote doesn't mean anything.
Thanks to Howard Dean and his
gang, Florida's Democrats won't
even have hotel rooms for the
nominating convention, let alone
seats on the convention-hall
floor. Your presidential primary
vote is worth less than the piece
of paper you vote with, assuming
anyone's still voting with paper
ballots (they don't here in Pinel-
las County). Still, it's no excuse.
If you're a Republican, you
have the chance to hold forth, al-
beit with half the sway Florida
would otherwise have. Both par-
ties cut or eliminated delegates
to punish the state for moving its
primary to an earlier date.
After all, it's not like Iowa's
caucus and New Hampshire's
primary are that influential. Why
can't a big state lead off?
I know, I know, if the bigger
states move their primaries for-
ward, the smaller states either
have to play leapfrog or their
voters' say gets drowned out.
And it all starts looking about as
confusing as college football's
Bowl Championship Series. No
one really wins.
Really, does it have to be
two states no one ever hears
from outside of the presidential
election cycle? Does ANY-
THING happen in Iowa? On a
clear night, you can hear the
corn stalks rustle in the breeze.
How about states like
Delaware or Connecticut? Even
West Virginia, which is a small
state squeezed in between a few
bigger states and Kentucky,
would be better.
One thing Florida has going
for it is that the primaries here
are closed, meaning only those
who identify as, say, a Republi-
can can vote in the GOP primary.
In every primary and caucus un-
til Florida's, independents could
vote for Republican candidates -
which may explain how Sen.


John McCain could win New
Hampshire and South Carolina.
Go to realclearpolitics.com
and you'll see just how unclear
the Florida GOP race really is.
Depending on the poll, McCain's
up big or not so big, former Mas-
sachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney is
outside the margin of error, or

ELECTION 2008 I STATE SENATE


Fasano will


face Democrat


challenger

Taylor says military experience
will aid him in Tallahassee


NEW PORT RICHEY In
announcing his candidacy for
state Senate District 11, Fred
Taylor, D-New Port Richey, ac-
cused the incumbent of not
making good in Tallahassee.
Democrat Fred Taylor, an
Army veteran who earned three
Purple Hearts in Vietnam,
pledged to lead with honesty
and integrity to find real solu-
tions to the challenges facing
the working families of Florida.
"There is an absence of lead-
ership in Tallahassee. Legisla-
tors talk a lot about major is-
sues like property taxes,
homeowners insurance, and
ethics reforms, but time after
time, career politicians like
Mike Fasano fail to deliver,"
Taylor said. "In the military, you
can't survive simply by not of-
fending anyone. You have to
work. My service to country in-
stills me with a natural drive to
produce results."
"We need less political rhet-
oric and more results-driven
leadership. As Senator, I will
work hard for the people, serv-
ing with the same commitment
to duty and honor in the Florida
Senate as I did in the U.S.
Army," Taylor said. "My whole


life I have been committed to
public service. I'm not running
to be a politician. I'm running to
serve the people again."
In 1967, with American
forces in Vietnam, Taylor vol-
unteered to serve his country in
the U.S. Army. The following
year, Taylor endured fierce en-
emy fire that left him with se-
vere injuries, including serious
trauma to his back that resulted
in temporary paralysis. Taylor
was subsequently awarded three
Purple Hearts for his injuries. A
metal plate in his right leg and a
piece of shrapnel taken from his
spinal area, which he still carries
with him, continue to remind
Taylor of his commitment to his
country.
Since his retirement from the
military, Taylor has been a
prominent local and national
leader within the veterans' com-
munity. In addition to working
with the American Legion, Vet-
erans of Foreign Wars, and Dis-
abled American Veterans, Taylor
served as the National Com-
mander of the Military Order of
the Purple Heart, where he ad-
vocated for veterans' issues and
worked with both the Clinton
and Bush administrations.

Morris Dees, who founded the Southern Poverty Law Center in 1971,
spoke on the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.'s march for civil rights at
USF-St. Petersburg Wednesday.


Civil rights leader talks

of King's struggles,

challenges remaining


By MELANIE MARQUEZ
For The Pinellas News

ST. PETERSBURG The
march for freedom that Dr. Mar-
tin Luther King, Jr. led and ex-
perienced continues today, civil
rights advocate Morris Dees told
a large audience Wednesday
night at the University of South
Florida St. Petersburg.
Among the long list of issues
currently dividing people in the
United States such as economic
status, gender and sexual orienta-
tion immigration is one that ex-
ists nationwide and needs every-
one's help, Dees explained.
"It's a controversial subject,"
Dees said. "Few states people
are willing to stand up and take
a courageous stand."
The Southern Poverty Law
Center, the civil rights law firm
Dees founded in 1971, has taken
on cases involving immigration
and the rights of guest workers.
An Alabama native who wit-
nessed the rise of the Civil
Rights movement, Dees dedi-
cates himself to the fostering of
racial equality through his work
with the Southern Poverty Law
Center and by winning legal bat-
tles against hate groups. Dees
serves as the SPLC Chief Trial
Counsel.
In his discussion Wednesday,


"It's about a thing
called justice. And
without justice in
our nation and in
our world there will
not be peace in our
nation and the
world."
MORRIS DEES
Founder of the Southern
Poverty Law Center


made possible by the Debbie
and Brent Sembler Florida
Holocaust Museum Lecture Se-
ries at the College of Education,
Dees argued that current issues
in immigration represent change
and change often represents fear.
When African Americans
sought the right to vote, that
brought fear, Dees said, adding
that in the last five years the
number of hate groups in the
United States has increased by
40% to 844 groups. The growth,
he said, is powered by anger to-
ward Latino migrants.
"It's about a thing called jus-
tice," Dees said. "And without
justice in our nation and in our
world there will not be peace in
our nation and the world."

US Army Corps
of Engineers


The Department of Defense (DoD) conducted
live-fire training and testing of weapon systems
at active and former military installations
throughout the United States to ensure force
readiness and defend our nation. As directed by
the U.S. Congress, the U.S. Army Corps of
Engineers manages the Military Munitions
Response Program (MMRP) for the DoD. Under
that program, the Corps assigns priorities to
defense sites containing unexploded ordnance,
discarded military munitions and/or munitions
constituents, based on various factors relating to
the potential for public safety and environmental
hazards.
The Corps' Jacksonville District is in the
process of investigating the former Mullet Key

Ramps

and roads

to nowhere
Last weekend, our family of
four under the gentle
persuasion of my signifi-
cant other boarded Southwest
Airlines to travel to Austin,
Texas, for a wedding and a little
R&R in the Lone Star State.
The wedding, the reception,
and after-reception gathering of
the clans at the Embassy Suites
was enjoyable and relaxing. How-
ever, having not been back to
Austin since the 1970s, I was un-
aware of how much Austin's
highway system changed.
In that span of time, the
Texas Department of Highways
spent tons of money on tons of
concrete to relieve congestion,
laying miles of expressways ac-
cessible only by a frontage road
whose entrance and exit were
usually beyond the road that I in-
tended to take, with signs that
only identified the cross street,
not the road I was traveling on.
Let's just say that my pa-
tience, expertise, and reliance
upon an older-model GPS pro-
vided to my spouse and two
daughters hours of entertainment,
better than many videos.
Austin is a city of several
names used concurrently and that
distinction is extended to its high-
ways as well. Perhaps it is in
honor of Lady Bird and her quest
to limit signage that only one
name would be visible at a time,
and usually not the street name I
was trying to find.
Here an example might ex-
plain. After leaving the hotel, in
north Austin the GPS starts blar-
ing to merge right onto Research
Boulevard. Looking ahead,
there's a spaghetti pile of multi-
level flyovers going into the
clouds, merge lanes, and frontage
roads going in every direction of
the compass. For those who have
time, go to Google Maps of
Austin locate where U.S. 813
meets Loop 1 and Loop 360.
You'd think that a loop
would be a highway that, well,
loops around. Not necessarily.
A Texas highway designated
as a loop can be used regionally
to refer to some portions of some
interstate highways, bypasses,
beltways, or as a State Highways
connector.
It is also common, due to all
the construction, for roads to have
multi-destinations in the same
place as roads merged together.
Depending on where you are
in Austin, U.S. 183 runs not only
north-south but also east-west. It
also changes names from Bell
Boulevard in far north Austin to
Research Boulevard to Anderson
Lane to Ed Bluestein Boulevard.
Was there one sign pointing
to Research Boulevard? No, just
highway numbers or "RM,"
which stand for Ranch to Market,
or "FM," which stands for Farm
to Market.
Multi-naming is also com-
mon to bridges as well.
Not knowing this, when we
were trying to get to the church
for the wedding, the GPS keeps
announcing "destination un-
known" as we plugged in the
church name, phone number,
street name, route name, finally
settling on a convenience store,
hoping it was near the church.
To add insult, while passing
beneath this multi-level thorough-
fare or several others, the GPS
announce "Guidance lost good-
bye." Even reverting back to a
map became a challenge, because


being from out-of-town, we had
no idea what streets were closed
for construction, but we found
out, by reading the sign at the
street entrance.
So, finally accepting our fate,
we just arrived late, everywhere.

Mortgage-fraud bill



part of state initiative


Fasano co-sponsors legislation
as part of initiative with state
attorney general's task force


Pinellas News Staff Report

TALLAHASSEE Legisla-
tion unveiled this week to
strengthen provisions against
mortgage rescue scams is spon-
sored by a Pinellas County rep-
resentative.
State Sen. Mike Fasano, R-
New Port Richey, is sponsoring
legislation that is helping state
Attorney General Bill McCol-
lum target mortgage-related
fraud with a new task force.
It's all part of a multi-
pronged initiative to combat the
fraud, specifically fraud involv-
ing "rescue foreclosure" scams.
As part of the initiative, Mc-
Collum filed a lawsuit asserting
South Florida-based National
Foreclosure Management and
multiple affiliates defrauded at
least 80 homeowners out of ap-
proximately $1.7 million in
home equity.
In addition to filing the law-
suit, McCollum announced the
filing of the Foreclosure Rescue
Fraud Prevention Act, spon-
sored by Fasano and Rep. Clay
Ford, R-Gulf Breeze. The pro-
posed legislation will ensure
that, among other things, home-


owners are
properly in-
formed about
their rights
when they are
signing a con-
tract with a
Fasano foreclosure
rescue entity.
"When
people are on the brink of losing
their homes, they are desperate
for any assistance available and
all too often they trust a wolf in
sheep's chil liii." Fasano said.
"We must strive to protect
Florida's homeowners from
such a dangerous situation."
"The Attorney General's Of-
fice is taking action against un-
scrupulous individuals who at-
tempt to take advantage of our
citizens when they are desperate
to protect their homes," McCol-
lum said. "We are tackling this
growing problem from several
directions to help keep families
in the homes they've worked so
hard to achieve."
Beginning in October 2004,
National Foreclosure Manage-
ment which now does busi-
ness as American Home Res-
cue, Inc. selected homeowners

school, worked on various programs and

law firm of Kantaras and Andreopoulos.


who had substantial equity in
their homes but were in the
process of being foreclosed
upon. The company would offer
to hold the titles to the homes
for a year, refinance the debt,
and provide cash and credit re-
pair counseling to the home-
owner, all while allowing the
homeowner to remain in the
house. The company claimed it
would deed the property back
at the end of the year after the
foreclosure had been avoided
and the homeowner's credit was
repaired.
Once the company had ob-
tained the title to the house, the
Attorney General's lawsuit al-
leges the company would strip
the equity from the homes by
refinancing them at inflated
prices and by assessing fraudu-
lent fees and costs, leaving little
or nothing for the homeowner to
recoup. The home would then
be sold outright to an investor or
a straw buyer who would lease
the home back to the home-
owner at a rental rate far ex-
ceeding the original mortgage
payment, virtually ensuring the
homeowner's eventual eviction.
According to the lawsuit, the
homeowners would end up with
neither the titles to the homes
nor the equity that rightfully be-
longed to them.
The lawsuit, filed with the
Office of Financial Regulation,


seeks restitution to the affected
homeowners, dissolution of the
rescue foreclosure companies,
and revocation of the mortgage
brokers' licenses revoked.
Don Saxon, Commissioner
of the Office of Financial Regu-
lation, expressed gratitude to
McCollum and Chief Financial
Officer Alex Sink for their con-
tinued support and commitment
to protect consumers.
rhiit'.ic fraud is a de-
structive crime that can destroy
a family's future in an instant,
and we need stronger laws to
protect Florida's consumers,"
said Sink, who oversees the De-
partment of Financial Services
and who heralded today's ac-
tions as essential to the fight
against mortgage-related fraud.
"It is downright disgraceful that
some would use trickery to steal
the dream of homeownership
from a struggling Floridian."
The lawsuit is the first filed
by the Attorney General's Mort-
gage Fraud Task Force, created
to investigate these various
schemes and, where appropri-
ate, seek solutions to protect
consumers.
The task force has been in
operation since September and
is comprised of 25 lawyers
and investigators in the Attor-
ney General's Office, sta-
tioned in locations throughout
the state.

enues.
Gilbert said he's concerned
that "our ability to remain a
full-service city is jeopardized
by financial weakness caused
by recent spending excesses,
the inability of our city to grow
horizontally and unchecked
growth of our administrative
overhead."
Financial weakness, he said,
will "inevitably" bring Gulfport
overwhelming pressure to de-
velop high-rise buildings, which
the city's residents don't want,
and the takeover of many city
services by the county govern-
ment, St. Petersburg and other
outside agencies.
"I also sense a frustration by
many of our citizens," Gilbert
said, "at their inability, through
their representatives, to influence
the actions of city government."


"Competition for
water, living space,
energy and
transportation will
increase the
challenges to the
survival and
character of small,
unique and diverse
communities such
as Gulfport."
ROBERT WORTHINGTON
Gulfport council member


Leiner said she ran for council
because "a large part of the com-
munity is not represented by the
current council members.... as a
young mother, I am one of those
people whose voice is currently
not being heard by council."


Worthington, a lifelong Gulf-
port resident who seeks a third
term, says he's "learned a lot
about issues that affect every
member of our community."
While growth and develop-
ment generally drive Florida's
economy, he said quality of life
depends on more than "never-
ending expansion."
He said the Tampa Bay re-
gion is expected to welcome an
additional 3.2 million people in
the next 35 years an increase
of 84 percent.
"Competition for water, liv-
ing space, energy and trans-
portation will increased the
challenges to the survival and
character of small, unique and
diverse communities such as
Gulfport," he said.
Clean water is the city's
"common essential need," Wor-
thington said, adding that "Gulf-
port, like many waterfront com-


munities, faces great challenges
because we are at the end of the
storm water pipe for much of
the region. Everything flows
into Gulfport and our adjacent
waters."
He believes the city needs to
be "more proactive" as the
state's water resources face
greater demand.
Leiner believes the city coun-
cil has been distracted by the
"large amount of time focused
on things such as mooring
fields, instead of focusing on
things that affect more people
in the community."
Gilbert says the city should
establish a revenue-producing
mooring field, however, and that
it should contract operation of
the casino to produce revenue.
He said he'd also pursue line-
item budgeting, as well as per-
manent city finance and charter
review committees.

Spaying and neutering prevents
deadly cancers and pets may live
as much as six years longer. The
procedures also prevent unwanted
behaviors like escaping to find a
mate, spraying and marking their
territory, fighting, and howling all
night in heat.
Dogs that are fixed are three
times less likely to bite. Cats start
reproducing as early as 4 months
and dogs as early as 6 months.

North American Paleoamerican
research with Dr. Albert
Goodyear III to learn about those
recent discoveries and surround-
ing controversies. Goodyear's re-
search specialties are stone tool
tcliii lh ,-;, and Paleoamerican
archaeology. He is the author of
over 100 articles, reports and
monographs.
The program, Recent Discov-
eries and Controversies in North
American Paleoamerican Re-
search: Pre-Clovis, Late Clovis
and Comet Impacts, is scheduled
for Tuesday, Jan. 29, from 7 to 8
p.m. at Weedon Island Preserve
in St. Petersburg. The free pro-
gram is best for adults and suit-
able for ages 12 and older. Reg-
istration is required by calling
727-453-6500.
Florida sites and artifacts
have played a role in these de-
veloping stories as gathered evi-
dence suggests the peopling of
America started far earlier than
previously thought. For instance,
the Clovis culture is no longer
considered the first people to ar-
rive in the Americas as seen by
the number of pre-14,000 year
old sites in North and South
America. In fact, the Clovis cul-
ture has been re-dated with mod-
em radiocarbon dating technol-


ogy and found to be a relatively
late and short-lived phenome-
non. Most recently, physicists
and geologists found strong evi-
dence that a comet-like extrater-
restrial impact 12,900 years ago
may have caused the extinction
of mammoths and mastodons
and put an end to the Clovis cul-
ture.
Discoveries at a site called
Topper in the Savannah River
Valley of South Carolina are
rewriting the textbooks on when
people first arrived in the West-
ern Hemisphere. Recently ob-
tained radiocarbon dates of
50,000 years indicate that hu-
mans arrived in the Americas
thousands of years before the last
Ice Age. The Topper site has re-
ceived a great deal of media cov-
erage including CNN, The New
York Times, and Newsweek and
National Geographic magazines.

Pier Aquarium gets



Glazer Family grant


ST. PETERSBURG The
Pier Aquarium announced a
$3,875 grant from the Glazer
Family Foundation to sponsor
the 2008 Kids' Fishing Tourna-
ment May 17.
The funds will underwrite the
event enabling the Aquarium to
continue offering the family ac-
tivity for just $1 per child. The
fishing tournament, which has
been held for almost 20 years, is
a family day for youngsters to
fish from The Pier and partici-
pate in Minnow Land hands-on
activities to learn about fish and
marine science.
The event attracts many low-
income families because of the


low $1 entry fee, which covers a
T-shirt, bait and a goodie bag.
"The Glazer Family Founda-
tion is excited to be part of the
tremendous work being done at
The Pier Aquarium," said Buc-
caneers Executive Vice President
Bryan Glazer. "It is an invalu-
able resource in marine educa-
tion and the opportunity to spon-
sor the Kids' Fishing
Tournament is a tremendous op-
portunity for the foundation."
The fishing tournament at-
tracts families who live through-
out the Tampa Bay region. About
500 children, 12 years and un-
der, have fished from The Pier
accompanied by some 1,500


adults (parents, grandparents and
other family members).
The Pier Aquarium, estab-
lished in 1988, is a private, non-
profit aquarium and marine edu-
cation center. Its mission is to
enhance the public's under-
standing of the value and
fragility of the local and global
marine environment through re-
search, education and personal
experiences.
Indoor and outdoor exhibits
and hands-on animal encounters
translate marine science infor-
mation and research being done
right here in Tampa Bay.
The Pier Aquarium show-
cases 15 tanks of live fish and


other marine life and educational
exhibits on the first and second
floors. Daily features include a
1-4pm Touch Tank Experience
and 3 p.m. Fish Feeding for vis-
itors.
The Roy G. Harrell, Jr. Edu-
cation Station, located on The
Pier approach, is an outdoor ma-
rine laboratory and teaching unit
used for children's education
programs.
More than 200,000 visitors,
including 29,000 who participate
in our educational programs,
come to The Pier Aquarium an-
nually.
Volunteers contribute more
than 4,600 hours annually.


City Ot St. Petersburg


The Tropicana Field site may still have toxic waste under its parking lots, a study commissioned by Downtown residents says.



Study says taxpayers may wind up


with a much larger bill for stadium


See CITIZENS I Page 7


The Rays have said the team
would kick in $150 million to the
total plan, money the associa-
tion's study says will come as
rent payments over a 15-year pe-
riod. The study asserts that if the
Rays' payment will be in the
form of rent, "it is not a contri-
bution to the cost of construction.
The Rays' proposed contribution
to that cost is, in fact, zero."
The team says the city will re-
coup its $450 million investment
when the Tropicana Field site is
sold for $200 million, plus the
tax revenues collected on the
property afterward, the study


says.
"And what about the bonds is-
sued years ago on the Tropicana
site that the city is still paying
off?" the document asks. "If the
city pushes ahead on the Rays'
latest plan, it will have to guar-
antee $450 million in municipal
bonds."
At a 4.5 percent rate for 15
years, the association says, the
total payment with interest is
more than $623.6 million, or
$41.5 million every month. To
get smaller payments, a longer
term would be costlier over a
30-year term at the same rate,
monthly payments of $27.4 mil-
lion would add to a total of al-


most $824.4 million.
The study calls the team's
principal owners "professional
Wall Street investors" who "hope
to earn at least 15 percent a year
on their money over the long
term... so they probably expect
payments of $10 million a year
over a 15-year period to actually
cost them less than $60 million -
not $150 million. And that ex-
cludes the savings they make by
identifying the monthly payments
as rent, which is tax-deductible."
By calling the payments
"rent" rather than contributions
to the cost of construction, the
association claims, payments due
to the city based on the team's


profits are also reduced.
"The plain and simple truth,"
the study says, is "if the city
builds a $450 million stadium for
these private investors, it will be
burdened with every penny of the
costs."
The association says the bond
issue is further necessitated be-
cause:
The city would not get the
$200 million for the Tropicana
Field site as fast as it would need
the money to pay for new sta-
dium construction, and
Tax revenues within the three-
year span before the new ball-
park opens would not pay for the
project.


What the proposed stadium's impact could be


See NEGATIVES I Page 7

ECOLOGICAL DAMAGE: By filling
part of the St. Petersburg Sailing
Center Harbor in Tampa Bay, the
association says the Rays will
affect the bay's biological
balance, destroy sea grass beds
and oyster domes, threaten
manatees, restrict tidal flow and
impair navigation.
INFRINGEMENT UPON
MAHAFFEY THEATER: The group
says the Rays seek five acres of
land considered part of the


Mahaffey Theater site to build a
parking garage and offices -
preventing the expansion of the
theater to seat audiences for
Broadway-show touring
companies.
NOISE POLLUTION:
Performances at the theater
would be "virtually impossible"
on a game night. The stadium
would, like Albert Whitted Airport,
demand exemption from the
city's noise ordinance, the group
says. On nights when concerts
are held in the stadium, Mahaffey


performances would "be
impossible" because of the
sound conflict. The quality of life
of Downtown residents and
business owners would be
"utterly destroyed" by noise from
the ballpark, the group says.
LIGHT POLLUTION: Buildings in
the ballpark's vicinity would be
flooded with light, a potential
nuisance to more than 100
homes, the study claims.
TRAFFIC HEADACHES:
Downtown gridlock now is bad,
the study says, when special


events are held, but it would be
worse if the Rays play there. On-
street parking, which Downtown
homeowners use, may become
scarce on game and concert
days.
DOWNTOWN BUSINESSES:
"There is abundant economic
evidence that Downtown
businesses will suffer greatly if
(the Rays') proposal is adopted,"
the association says. Traffic
jams would repel shoppers, and
attendance at cultural institutions
would be reduced.


Police arrest 34 during DUI checkpoint setup


ST. PETERSBURG Pinel-
las County deputies and Largo
police arrested 34 people on 48
charges at two DUI checkpoints
Friday and Saturday.
The checkpoints were set up
in conjunction with the National
Highway Traffic Safety Admin-


istration DUI Sustained Enforce-
ment Program.
The goal of a sobriety check-
point is to reduce injuries and to
save lives.
Police say 129 drivers were
diverted off the highway for as-
sessment and 152 traffic citations


were issued.
Eighteen vehicles were im-
pounded.
Among the tally, there were
12 DUI arrests, 10 charges of
driving while licenses are sus-
pended or revoked, nine charges
of possession of a controlled sub-


stance, and five warrant arrests.
Friday night's checkpoint was
from 8-11 p.m. along the 900
block of Missouri Avenue North.
Saturday's checkpoint was
from 12:30 a.m.-3:30 a.m. on the
2300 block of Belcher Road, both
in Largo.

ELECTION I From Page 3

Rudy Giuliani is barely ahead.
While the Democrats' presi-
dential primary is little more
than a beauty pageant here in
Florida, it's not as though De-
mocrats are going to the polls in
vain. There's plenty of reasons
to vote.
So get off your ifs and buts


and go cast that ballot. Thou-
sands shed blood to ensure you
have the right, and if you don't
exercise it, you might at some
point lose it. We can't let THAT
happen, can we?
