TRAINING


THINGS


YOU MUST KNOW


Pinellas News Staff Report

Spring fever is almost here baseball spring
training starts next week, and fans of the
Tampa Bay Rays, Philadelphia Phillies and
Toronto Blue Jays will descend onto St.
Petersburg, Clearwater and Dunedin to catch
their teams.
Going into Rays spring training, here's five h
things you should know about this year's team.

1. Rays sign all-star closer Percival, outfielder Floyd
The Rays signed two former all-stars in the off season, Troy Percival
and Cliff Floyd. These two should bring veteran leadership to the club-
house. Percival went 3-0 with a 1.80 ERA in 34 games for the St. Loui,
Cardinals in 2007. Rays manager Joe Maddon is very familiar with Pei-
cival the two spent time together with the Los Angeles Angels.
Floyd spent 2007 with the Chicago Cubs, hit 9 home runs and batted
.284 in 108 games. He was a member of the World Series-winning 199"
Florida Marlins.

2. Outfield logjam creates competition
The addition of Floyd creates a logjam in the outfield.
All Star Carl Crawford will play left field, and B.J. Up-
ton will man centerfield. Floyd will split time in right
field with Rocco Baldelli and Jonny Gomes. Baldelli is
coming off an injury plagued 2007 season. The three will
battle all spring long for the starting position. One of
three will be the designated hitter most nights as well. Baldelli

3. Final year training in St. Pete
This spring is the last spring training
season for the Rays at Al Lang Field. Start-
ing next spring, the Rays will move to a
new stadium in Charlotte County.
The Rays are the only team to train in
their regular-season city.
Al Lang Field has been home to spring
training baseball since 1916. The Philadel-
phia Nationals, Boston Braves, New York
Yankees, and St. Louis Cardinals have
called the stadium home. The Rays have
plans to build a new retractable-roof sta-
dium on the site, opening in 2012.

4. Battle at third base i


Watch for Evan Longoria's develop-
ment at third base. Longoria will battle
Willy Aybar, who the Rays acquired
from the Atlanta Braves. Longoria spent
2007 in the Rays minor league system,
batting .299 with 26 home runs in 136 L
Iwamura Longoria
games. Aybar has played in 105 major
league games, but missed the 2007 sea-
son. In his major league career he has hit .292 with 5 home runs.
Akinori Iwamura will move from third to second base. Iwamura comes off
a strong rookie season in which he batted .285 with 7 home runs and 34 RBI.
More impressive than his offensive numbers was his strong defensive play.

Close race

recount

One city commission
seat won with just more
than 50 percent of vote
By DOUGLAS E. JESSMER
The Pinellas News
ST. PETERSBURG Eighteen votes that's the
margin by which Safety Harbor City Commissioner-
elect Nina Bandoni won Jan. 29.
Because the margin of victory was so close, Pinel-
las County Supervisor of Elections spokeswoman
Nancy Whitlock said, there was an automatic re-
count.
A machine recount is mandated by state law when
the margin of victory is one-half of 1 percent or
less, she said. If the margin is one-fourth of 1 percent
or less, the recount is done by hand.
Bandoni, who's a municipal consultant, bested fi-
nancial advisor Robin Fornino 2,670-2,652 on elec-
tion night, but the recount discovered two extra votes
for each candidate, bringing the total to 2,672-2,654.
Bandoni could not be reached for comment for
this story, but said in a mid-January candidates forum
that she'd work to ensure an appropriate mix of busi-
nesses in Safety Harbor's downtown, and that new
businesses would stay in character with the rest of
the community.
She said the city's visioning sessions produced
gc.n ideas," and new businesses to the city must be
mindful of the city's old-Florida-neighborhood vi-
sion.



Animal Planet
host: Floridians
'good stewards'

Jeff Corwin makes rare
appearance in Clearwater

By COLLEEN KREPSTEKIES
The Pinellas News
Clearwater's public library could hardly contain
the crowd that gathered for a cable-TV animal show
host Saturday.
Animal Planet's Jeff Corwin gave a presentation
that some fans waited nearly five hours in line to see
- and while only about 200 people could get in, a big
outdoor screen was provided for the overflow crowd,
estimated to be at least another 400.
Corwin was in town to spread his message that
people should be good stewards of the environ-
ment.
It's easier for people to relate to each other, or an-
imals, he said, when they share similarities Corwin
told the audience that elephants can perish if they do
not receive its mother's love and comfort -just like
humans.
One night, he said, as he laid next to an orphaned
baby elephant, he had to provide it comfort when it
experienced a nightmare.
The elephant, in turn, relaxed and reached out its
trunk wrapping it around Jeff's head "like a turban."

IN FOCUS




Gracing us with




their presence


St. Pete is

one of only

three cities

to show

Vatican

artifacts

ST. PETERSBURG
O ne of the
largest collec-
tions of art,
documents and histori-
cally significant
objects from the
Vatican ever to tour
North America will
open Saturday at the
Florida International
Museum.
"Vatican Splendors from St.
Peter's Basilica, the Vatican Muse-
ums and Swiss Guard" will include
unique objects illustrating the
Vatican's impact on 2,000 years
of history and culture. The ex-
hibit's timing commemorates
the 500th anniversary of St. Pe-
ter's Basilica, the founding of
the Vatican Museums, Michelan-
gelo's painting of the Sistine Chapel
ceiling and the establishment of the
Papal Swiss Guard, and it coincides
with the 40th anniversary of the Dio-
cese of St. Petersburg, which co-spon-
sors the exhibit.
Only three American cities will
host the exhibit St. Petersburg,
Cleveland and St. Paul, Minn. The ex-
hibit closes here May 11.
"We are delighted that St. Peters-
burg will be the first stop for this spe-
cial presentation," Florida International
Museum Executive Director Kathy
Oathout said.
About 200 rare objects will be pre-
sented in contextual environments,
such as the recreated tomb of St. Peter.
Items in the collection include
tiaras, mosaics, paintings,
works by well-known sculp-
tors, papal rings and jewels,
intricately embroidered silk
vestments, precious objects
from the Papal Mass,
armor, swords and
vestments of the
Swiss Guard, and gifts
to the popes from notables in-
cluding Napoleon and the Dalai
Lama.
All the items are on loan
from the Vatican Museums, the
Congregation for the Evangelization of
Peoples, the Office of the Liturgical Cel-
ebrations of the Supreme Pontiff, the
Reverenda Fabbrica of St. Peter, the
Apostolic Floreria, the Papal Swiss
Guard and private collections.
The exhibit will also feature actual
objects from the election of Pope Bene-
dict XVI, including election ballots,
patens and urns used to vote, a ceremo-
nial vestment and an actual white smoke
cartridge, which would be used to an-
nounce the election.
"This exhibition is in itself signifi-
cant, as it represents one of the largest
collections of art and objects from the
Vatican to tour North America," Mon-
signore Roberto Zagnoli said. "Many of
these works have bever before been out-
side Vatican City."
Evergreen Exhibitions President
Mark Greenberg said the exhibition ex-
pores the Vatican's influence on world
history.

Candy

and cookie

hearts,

here we go

How's your New Year's

resolutions going? Break
them yet?
That's what I figured.
Well, get ready for more
chocolate, this time molded in
heart shapes.
Get ready for shortbread
heart cookies (someone's gotta
try that recipe on the back page
this week).
And, oh, yeah, all those peo-
ple in the office getting flowers
delivered.
And smooching in public.
And the sappy cards.
And a deluge of red and
pink everywhere you look.
That's right. I see you
rolling your eyes. Valentine's
Day (which, for the purposes of
this column, will be called
"VD") is this coming Thursday.
You can't avoid VD. It's like
the plague. All that icky, smarmy
mushiness, everyone fawning
over someone... that VD spirit is
in the air. A former colleague of
mine said it best: "Share your
VD with someone special." I feel
like I need to wash my hands al-
ready.
Unless you have no one to
dote over. Then, VD becomes
something you'd rather ignore.
Someone I know, when
asked about VD, said that VD
doesn't have to involve someone
you love. It could be for your
family, your dog....
So is VD a sickness?
If you started reading this
column a couple of sentences
ago, get your mind out of the
gutter. I'm talking about Valen-
tine's Day.
Papa John's Pizza offers
heart-shaped pizzas, for the love
of Pete. There's heart-shaped
cheesecake... cheesecake...
cheesecake...
567
RTYU
DFGHJK
CVBNM

Sorry, had to snap out of my
cheesecake dream. Yeah, I
banged my head into the key-
board. Sorry.
If the way to a man's heart
is through his stomach, you
don't have to do much for me,
girls. Angie's already got my
cheesecake situation under con-
trol, but you can send me one. If
it requires refrigeration, better
bring it in person. Our address is
in the bottom left comer of page
2. I'm usually here before 11
most days.
Maybe we need a cheese-
cake contest. If there's enough
interest, I'd be happy to judge,
but I need a large sample, at
least, in order to judge accu-
rately.
At this point, you can tell
I've steered away from signs of
affection... to the gratification
that comes with cheesecake.
How selfish of me. I'm
ashamed.
So VD is a way to show oth-
ers you care for them or you love
them, cheesecake or not. It's also
an appropriate time to give to
others.
St. Jude's Children's Re-
search Hospital, you know, the
place Danny Thomas used to ad-
vertise for up in Memphis, ap-
parently sells heart jewelry at
shop.stjude.org.


That seems like a good way
to give to others and benefit yet
more people.
Might be better than giving
the dog that VD spirit. But the
cheesecake thing still stands.

ational area is built in front of
the complex in June 2008.
"Building this playground


will be a collaborative effort,"

ter Thresher's Mascot, and rep-
resentatives from the Clearwa-

Four cities'


firefighters


learn foam use

ST. PETE BEACH More than 60 firefighters
trained recently in how to use foam to extinguish
fires.
The firefighters, from St. Pete Beach, Treasure
Island, South Pasadena and Gulfport, learned that
foam is often used to place a protective barrier or
foam blanket on fuels that could ignite, St. Pete
Beach Fire Dept. spokesman Mike Handoga said.
"Foam is almost always seen on the scene of any
fuel tanker accident or plane crash," he said. "Foam
is also extremely effective in fighting fires on boats
constructed of fiberglass."
Handoga said every fire vehicle serving St. Pete
Beach and its surrounding communities carry foam.
The training included recognizing when foam
should be used, how to generate foam, how to con-
trol dangerous vapors and how to quickly and prop-
erly apply foam.


At 6 p.m., participants can
meet their neighbors, view
playground presentations, hear
a few words from Mayor Frank
Hibbard, and enjoy free ham-
burgers and hot dogs.
Clearwater is partnering
with the State of Florida and
the Changing Point (Let Them
Be Kids) to construct the new
playground in front of the com-
plex.
The Let Them Be Kids ini-
tiative of the Changing Point is


a worldwide effort that brings
hope and play to children
around the world.
When the Ross Norton play-
ground is being constructed,
other playgrounds will be built
on the same date, throughout
the world.
The Ross Norton Recreation
& Aquatic Complex is at 1426
S. Martin Luther King, Jr. Ave.
To participate, or for more
information, call (727) 562-
4803.

Black HIV/AIDS event and testing slated today


TAMPA Organizations in
Pinellas County will respond to-
day to the impact of HIV/AIDS
in black communities, in obser-
vance of the seventh annual Na-
tional Black HIV/AIDS Aware-
ness Day.
Today's event, from noon-4
p.m. at the Open Air Market,
3601 29th St. N., will feature
free barbecue, music, health ven-
dors and health screenings from
1-3 p.m.
It's one of several events and


opportunities to get tested that
will encourage citizens to get ed-
ucated, get treated and get in-
volved with HIV/AIDS as it con-
tinues to devastate black
communities.
The Centers for Disease Con-
trol and Prevention (CDC) re-
ports that 72 African Americans
are infected with HIV every day.
African Americans make up ap-
proximately 13 percent of the
population of the United States,
yet almost half of the total AIDS


cases reported in this country is
among members of the Black
community.
In Florida, more blacks are
living with HIV or already dead
from AIDS than any other racial
or ethnic group.
According to the Florida De-
partment of Health, in 2006,
blacks accounted for 45 percent
of AIDS cases in men and 69
percent in women, and 40 per-
cent of HIV cases in men and 66
percent in women.


This year's NBHAAD theme
is "prevention is power" and the
Tampa area will be among the
more than 800 cities nationwide
to sponsor programs supporting
HIV/AIDS prevention initiatives
that call attention to, and seek
solutions for, this epidemic.
Floridians can text their zip
code to "46246" in order to re-
ceive a text reply of their nearest
testing location.
All text messages are confi-
dential.


BRIEFS


Sheriff's detectives seek
robbery suspect
Authorities seek the public's
help to identify a suspect ac-
cused of robbing an elderly
Largo man.
The robbery occurred
shortly after midnight Jan. 5 in
the 10200 block of Sailwinds
Boulevard in Largo.
The suspect is described as a
25-30 year old white man,
weighing about 170 pounds and
standing about 5-feet-10. He
was cleanshaven at the time of
the robbery, with brown hair
worn in a crew-cut style.
Sheriff's detectives say that
before the robbery, the victim
was returning home from a lo-
cal civic club when he saw the
suspect walking in the area of
122nd Avenue and 104th Street.
The victim offered the suspect
a ride and then drove to the en-
trance of a nearby apartment
complex. Detectives say that
when the victim stopped the car
at the destination the suspect
provided, the victim was struck
in the face and knocked uncon-
scious.
When the victim came to,
he drove to a nearby relative's
home, where he reported the
incident to authorities.
The victim was injured dur-
ing the attack, and was trans-
ported to a local hospital, where
he was treated and released.
Detectives say that after the
robbery, the suspect began us-
ing the victim's credit card sev-
eral hours after the robbery to
make purchases at various area
businesses. Detectives collected

ROBERT M.
POTTER




Pinellas News


So who

wants

to be vice

president?
Looking back at the results
of what the media had
referred to as "Tsunami
Tuesday," the day did not produce
a clearly dominant frontrunner for
the presidential candidate race for
either major political party.
In fact, the mixed results of
the primary left political prog-
nosticators in a fog and left radio
talk show hosts a very easy job
pontificating the negative about
all the candidates while watching
their ratings and paychecks soar.
What "Tsunami Tuesday"
did is steel the candidates' re-
solve to continue their cam-
paigns until the party conven-
tions in late August. So now the
possibility of there being a
spoiler or kingmaker at the con-
vention is probable and will re-
mind those longer in the tooth of
the conventions back in the un-
sophisticated 1960s.
For the Republicans, after
"Tsunami Tuesday" Sen. John
McCain, R-Ariz.) leads the con-
vention delegate count with 697 to
the combined count of 431 dele-
gates for former Arkansas Gov.
Mike Huckabee and former Mas-
sachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney.
But the party is split along
ideological lines. Talk-radio talk-
ing heads have exacerbated the
split, bizarrely pushing their own
agenda and blasting the frontrun-
ner, McCain. I thought that was
the Democrats' job, not allegedly
their own supporters.
On the democratic side, Sen.
Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., has
1,012 delegates and Sen. Barack
Obama, D-Ill., has 993. To win
the Democrats' nomination, a
candidate needs 2,025 delegates.
One would expect the candidates
to be constantly throwing spears
or the kitchen sink and anything
else to gain the lead, but on the
surface, the sparring has been
more genteel, leaving newspaper
pundits predicting an absolute
Chernobyl-style meltdown China
syndrome at the August conven-
tion in Denver.
I think most would agree
that with only two candidates re-
maining, the alliances each made
to get endorsements from vari-
ous state leaders should give a
strong hint on what the strate-
gists think to balance to ticket
and bring to the candidate the
states with the most electoral
college votes. Just a note from
history: in 1994, then-Vice Presi-
dent Al Gore won the popular
vote, while President Bush won
the electoral college.
So which states are really
big guns? In order of impact they
are California (55), Texas (34),
New York (31), Florida (27), Illi-
nois (21), Pennsylvania (21),
Ohio (20), Michigan (17), New
Jersey (15), Georgia (15), North
Carolina (15), and I could go on,
but to win, all a candidate needs
is 270 electoral votes. These 11
states add up to 271.
Getting back on point, who
would balance the ticket to win?
Bill Richardson of New Mexico.
Now moving on to the Re-
publicans, and getting straight to
the point: Our own governor.
Why? 27 electoral votes. Second,
Florida voted Republican by only
537 votes out of 8 million cast in
2000. The impact of a favorite son
would tip the balance. Finally,
Charlie was in New York with
McCain on TV on the platform


out front, just as he was when he
was Secretary of Education, and
later as Attorney General under
former Gov. Jeb Bush.
So, Florida could be again
be the dealmaker for the Repub-
licans.

Clearwater seeks neighborhood


block party participation


CLEARWATER Clearwa-
ter's Neighborhood Services Di-
vision is seeking participation
from, and offering assistance to,
neighborhood associations and
citizen groups within the city
limits who are interested in
holding block parties in their
neighborhoods on Saturday,
March 15, and getting a chance
to socialize with Clearwater city
officials.
As many as 30 neighbor-
hoods are expected to register
for the city's tenth anniversary
Celebrate Clearwater Neighbor-


hoods Day, an annual event that
showcases the diversity and ac-
complishments of Clearwater's
neighborhoods in block parties
throughout the city.
In addition to the opportu-
nity for social interaction at the
gatherings, they provide a fo-
rum for residents and city lead-
ers to communicate face-to-
face.
On that Saturday each year,
groups of city leaders including
the mayor, city councilmem-
bers, department directors and
other city staff representatives


fan out across the city to visit
the party sites. Residents are en-
couraged to socialize with as
many as 80 visiting city repre-
sentatives, share ideas with each
other, and take advantage of the
relaxed atmosphere to bring for-
ward neighborhood-related
questions and concerns.
"Since this is our tenth an-
niversary, we'd like to see if we
can engage neighborhoods that
have not participated before,"
said Becky Melendez, Neigh-
borhood Services Manager.
"The interaction and exchange


of ideas at these events is in-
valuable to strengthening the
neighborhoods and the city."
Neighborhoods who register
to hold a block party recieve
"block party kits" to help or-
ganize their event including spe-
cialized flyers to invite neigh-
bors, party decorations,
planning materials, and other
promotional items.
Block party registrations
should be received no later than
March 1. For information, call
Becky Melendez at 727-562-
4585.

Man arrested after bar fight, subsequent stabbing


LARGO -- Sheriff's detec-
tives have arrested a St. Peters-
burg man for stabbing another
man during a fight.
Lawrence Newsom, 44, of
St. Petersburg, was charged
with aggravated battery with a
deadly weapon Feb. 1 in con-
nection with the Jan. 31 inci-
dent.
The incident began as a ver-
bal dispute at Oliver's Bar,
8235 46th Ave. N, St. Peters-
burg, around 3 p.m. Jan. 31.
The incident ultimately es-


calated into a stabbing at a
nearby residence, almost an
hour later.
According to detectives the
suspect, Newson and the vic-
tim, John Finn, 45, of Seminole,
began to argue inside the bar.
During the argument, the
suspect struck the victim in the
face and fled, eventually leav-
ing the area in his van.
Detectives say the suspect
later returned to his home,
across the street from the bar.
Shortly before 4 p.m., the


victim confronted the suspect
outside his home and the two
men began to fight.
Detectives say that during
the fight the suspect reportedly
stabbed the victim once in the
upper torso with a large kitchen
knife after which he again fled
from the area in his van.
The victim was transported
by ambulance to Bayfront Med-
ical Center in St. Petersburg
where he was admitted for
treatment of a serious but non-
life threatening injury.


Detectives say the suspect
again returned home at about
five hours later.
After voluntarily speaking
with detectives at the Sheriff's
Administration Building in
Largo, he was arrested.
