BOYD HILL NATURE PRESERVE


Roundup aims to eradicate invasive vine


BY FRANK R. CARRERAS III
PINELLAS NEWS
ST. PETERSBURG: Potato pickers will
gather at Boyd Hill Nature Preserve Satur-
day, Feb. 7, to participate in the park's annual
air potato roundup. The round up is in an ef-
fort to remove and control the spread of air
potato, an invasive non-native plant that
threatens Florida's native vegetation.
Volunteers will meet.from 10 a.m. to 12
p.m. at the preserve to comb the area for the
air potato, removing vines and aerial tubers.
Air Potato is a category one invasive ac-
cording to the Center for Aquatic and Inva-
sive Plants at the University of Florida. Cat-

tures or ecological functions, or hybridizing
with natives."
The air potato poses a threat to Florida
because of its ability to destroy native vege-
tation including trees, plants and other vines.
The vine sprouts from bulbils and forms a
large mat that can climb tall trees or engulf
shrubs and other plants, blocking out the
sunlight, and eventually killing off the sur-
rounding vegetation
According to CAIP the air potato grows as
much as 8 inches per day and can span up to
70 feet. It spreadsrapidly through the bulbils,
which assist in its reproduction. Even the
smallest'ones can.sprout a new vine, so re-
moval can be difficult due to their ability to
sprout at a very small stage. The aerial stems
of air potato die in winter months, but they
can re-sprout from bulbils and underground


tubers.
The CAIP recommends that you remove
as many bulbils as possible during the winter,
when it's dormant. Anything you leave will
sprout and it can be hard to control.
Everything that is collected should be re-
moved from the yard and disposed of in land-
fill where they can be incinerated. If new
vines do reproduce, household weed control
will kill off the foliage, but remember to re-
move the bulbils and underground tubers to
ensure that there is no reproduction.
The air potato plant is native to Africa
and Asia and is a common and widespread
food crop throughout most tropical regions of
the world, according to the CAIP The tu-
bers of the vine are like small, oblong pota-

SENIOR SPOTLIGHT

Mini Tvaska, 90, gets ready for a morning at the bowling alley with one of her two bowling teams. Mini will compete in this
year's United States Bowling Congress' annual national Women's Championship tournament for the 63rd consecutive year.


BY CHRISTINA CASADONTE
PINELLAS NEWS
ST PETERSBURG: Sunrise Lanes
on 9th Street and 68th Avenue North
in St. Petersburg was busier than you
would expect for a Wednesday morn-
ing. Dozens of bowlers filed into the
bowling alley, shined their bowling
balls, changed their shoes, and took
their places at their designated lanes.
Mini Tvaska, 90, was no exception.
As she removed her six-pound, red
and black ball from its bag and readied
her size 4 1/2 burgundy suede shoes,
she smiled and said, "Now we go
through our ritual."
The "ritual" preparations for bowl-
ing are ones with which Tvaska is
more than familiar. The Deerborn,
Mich. native has been enamored with
bowling since her first game in 1941.
"I had to bowl in my stocking feet,"
she said. "I didn't have a ball or shoes.


Bowling was not popular.yet."
Some 68 years later, Tvaska is a
member of two different bowling
teams, practices every Friday, and
holds the United States Bowling Con-
gress record for most consecutive ap-
pearances in the national Women's
Championship tournament.
Tvaska participated in the very
first USBC tournament in Grand
Rapids, Mich. in 1947. She has ap-
peared in every tournament since,
breaking the record last year in De-
troit, where she made her 62nd con-
secutive appearance.
Her determination to qualify for
the 2006 USBC Women's Champi-
onship tournament best highlights
Tvaska's commitment to bowling. Af-
ter injuring her right shoulder in a fall
in 2006, Tvaska said she struggled to
make the 21 appearances in league
sanctioned games necessary to qualify
for the USBC Women's Championship


tournament that year.
"It nearly killed me," Tvaska joked.
"But the tournament is my life goal."
Once she arrived at the tournament,
Tvaska was so weak she could only
manage to push her ball over the line.
The USBC counted her appearance
nonetheless, bringing her one step
closer to ultimately breaking the
record for consecutive appearances
held by Mary Covell, who retired in
1992.
Tvaska currently maintains a 100
average, an impressive number con-
sidering that she suffers from macular
degeneration, a degenerative eye con-
dition.
"My teammates have to tell me
what I have," Tvaska explained of
bowling without being able to see the
pins.
.But it is obvious scores have never

Quit Kicking

and Start

Pulling.
I just finish read-
ing a letter from
Alex Sink, the Chief
Financial Officer for A L
the State of Florida,
dated February 4,
addressed to the ROBERT M.,
Commissioner of POTTER
Agriculture Charles Commentary
H. Bronson. The
letter directed him to deliver a convoy
of ships worth of useless data to her
office in seven days, that is next Fri-
day, February 13.
The request document released by
the CFO includes the request for
"Your thoughts about how your
agency could best draw down the M-
A-X-I-M-U-M in federal financial as-
sistance."
The Department of Agriculture is
supposed to explain to the CFO how
to "beg" or maximize, the funding pro-
vided to the state of Florida, by the
Federal Government?
Sink reveals on the CFO's web site
that her work experience includes "30
years that culminated in her presi-
dency of Florida's largest bank, Bank
of America." Personally I would give
some credence to adding the phrase
"receiving TARP and FDIC Bailout
Assistance."
Sink's cohort's at Bank of America
have already been granted $45 Billon
dollars in TARP funding plus another
$118 Billion in FDIC guarantees. She
probably has the direct phone number
on speed dial of the Bank of America
associate she need to consult regard-
ing the finer points of getting federal
"Bail Out" dollars for the State of
Florida. Plus check on some residual
executive bonus or deferred compen-
sation that Bank of America may still
owe her since they are now flush with
our tax dollars.
After reading such an eloquent
waste of paper, that does nothing to-
ward solving Florida fiscal problems, it
appears that two of the four state wide
elected members of the Governor's
Cabinet are in a "turf war" or "pass
the buck" or just posturing for the
2010 election cycle.
Governor Crist and/or Attorney
General McCollum have the additional
roll of referee between the elected
cabinet offices. -
You may, be askjirg yourself, why;
doesn't the Governor Charlie Christ
invoke the Florida idiomatic expres-
sion for getting along "My Way or the
Highway" or have the Attorney Gen-
eral "Tase" the two of them, calling it
judicial restraint. The Office Cabinet
Affairs state the reason simply and
eloquently.
Florida's Cabinet system is unique
in that it is the only state comprised of
"independently elected officials who
have equal footing with the Governor
on issues under the Cabinet's juris-
diction."
Florida is the only state where
blame and praise and turf wars can be
spread four ways, and very little is
getting done.

been her motivation for bowling.
When asked about her favorite
memories from clearly seven decades
of bowling, Tvaska rarely mentions
her scores at all. Instead, she re-
counts "screaming for 10 minutes"
the first time she witnessed a perfect
"300" game, the camaraderie with her
teammates, and how she loves bowl-
ing because "no matter what you do,
people clap like you did something
great."
"It's not that I'm a great bowler,"
she admitted. "I just really love it."
Tvaska is optimistic about the
next USBC tournament in Reno, Nev.
on May 19. She is playing three times
a week and thinks she found some-
thing she can work on to improve her
game.
"Sometimes I feel like slowing
down," she said. "But I know I just
gotta go."

USF signs nine

for women's

soccer
TAMPA: University of South
Florida women's head soccer coach
Denise Schilte-Brown is proud to an-
nounce the signing of nine high
school seniors to binding national
letters of intent to come play soccer
at USF this morning on 2009 Na-
tional Signing Day.
"We are very excited to announce
this year's signing class," said
Schilte-Brown. "Recruiting is so im-
portant and with this class I feel we
have added players that keep us go-
ing in the right direction in terms of
where we want to be as a soccer pro-
gram."
This class marks Schilte-Brown's
third recruiting class since being
named head coach in the winter of
2006. With most of the current ros-
ter hailing from the soccer rich state,
of Florida, Schilte-Brown and her
staff has compiled a group of talented
players hail from up and down the
eastern seaboard with players from,.
New York, North Carolina, New Jer-
sey all the way down to Florida
where the Bulls pulled five players
from the Sunshine State. Schilte-
Brown also used her roots from up'
North to land two heralded players
from Canada.
"I think we did an outstanding: job
in going out and finding the best pos.-
sible players out there, no. matter
where they were," said Schilte-
Brown. "Not only do I feel this class
is talented but it is filled with expe-
rienced winners." Bringing in win-
ners is a key building block for us as
a program."
Although much smaller in size
than the class from a season ago, the
class filled players with outstanding
pedigrees, on both the national and,
international levels. The group in-
cludes players named to All-State,
All County teams along with numer-
ous players that have won champi-
onships at the highest levels of club
soccer, multiple Olympic Develop-
mental Players and also includes a
player that is ranked in the National
Top 100 per TopDrawerSoccer.com.
The nine newcomers will join a
young but experienced Bulls team
which saw a total of ten true fresh-
men make starts in the 2008,seaso, r
which saw the Bpllsgo 7j8;3on the

toes, and are cultivated as a food crop
in places like West Africa. The tubers
often have a bitter taste, which can be
removed by boiling. They can then be
prepared in the same way as other
yams, potatoes, and sweet potatoes
but may be harmful. The air potato is
one of the most widely-consumed
yam species. According to the Center,
air potato was introduced from Africa
for food and medicinal purposes in the
early 1900s.

If you live in an area that has some
invaded areas, you can help by pitch-
ing in during a round. Contact your lo-
cal Conservancy office for more de-
tails. If you're interested in
volunteering for the air potato pickup
you can contact the preserve from
more information or meet at the park
at 10 a.m. on Saturday. For the pickup,
bring garden gloves and drinking wa-
ter.

Fantasy of Flight announces WEEKLY RECIPE

"WASP" symposium

.., 6 Planked Salmon with Peach Mango Salsa
"l If you're in the mood for seafood, this .. .-. -
. pirate inspired salmon dish will satisfy \
your hunger and keep you moving-
." / which is especially good if you are
Searching for lost treasure...


POLK CITY: Fantasy of Flight is
proud to announce the second event
in its three-part "Living History" Sym-
posium Series, "A Passionate Pursuit,"
featuring the WASP Women Airforce
Service Pilots a spirited squadron of
pilots who left their homes and jobs at
the height of World War II to serve
their country as the first American
women to fly for the U.S. Military.
Part two of the Living History
Symposium Series will take place Fri-
day, March 27 and Saturday, March 28,
in. honor of Women's History Month,
and will bring to life the experiences
of some of America's most courageous
aviators through permanent and semi-
permanent exhibits, real aircraft, and
most importantly, personal stories
from real WASP pilots who will be an-
swering questions and interacting
with guests.
When every available American
male pilot was absorbed into combat
overseas, dangerous non-combat
flight duty still required pilots state-
side for ferrying, testing, dragging tar-
gets and liaison tasks hardly suited
for the inexperienced or the faint of
heart. Once again the "greatest gen-
eration" stepped forward to meet the
challenge only this time the boots
were filled by women.
Fantasy of Flight's WASP exhibi-
tion, which includes aircraft as well
as four separate bays that feature his-
torical, anecdotal, and inspirational
newsreel footage, original photos, and
storytelling panels from the 1940s and
today, will serve as the backdrop for
historic appearances from real WASP
pilots, Betty Blake, Helen Wyatt
Snapp and Bernice "Bee" Falk Haydu.
On Dec. 7, 1941, 21-year-old pilot
Betty Blake was scheduled to fly a
tourist from one Hawaiian island to
another. Lucky for her, the tourist can-
celled the reservation and Blake was
not in the skies when the Japanese
bombed Pearl Harbor. Although she
wasn't hurt, several of her Navy
friends were killed and the event
changed her life forever. She soon en-
rolled in the WASP program and flew
planes from factories to bases on the
Atlantic and Pacific coasts where they
would be deployed for combat. Blake
recalled, "They'didn't think girls would
be able to fly military planes," but to-
gether, the fearless female pilots
logged nearly 60 million miles before
the program was disbanded in Dec.
1944.
Helen Wyatt Snapp was working
as a government clerk in Washington,
D.C. when she decided to take advan-
tage of Franklin D. Roosevelt's new
Civilian Pilot Training Program and
quickly earned her private pilot's li-
cense. While her husband, Ira Ben-
ton Snapp, was serving overseas, He-


photo provided by Fantasy of Flight
len heard about the WASP program
and wanted to do her part. She was ac-
cepted into the program in Jan. 1943
and served at Liberty Field in Camp
Stewart, Ga. until WASP was de-acti-
vated. By that time, Snapp had com-
pleted more than 1,000 hours of flying
time and flew numerous target mis-
sions, towing targets for live fire on
anti-aircraft ranges.
Bernice "Bee" Falk Haydu was an
engineering test pilot and utility pilot
for WASP for only one year before the
program was disbanded, but she later
served as President of the Order of
Fifinella, the WASP alumnae organi-
zation, and was instrumental in the
fight to obtain WWII Veterans' status
for members of the group. The battle
for Veterans' benefits took two years,
a national media tour and "much mid-
night oil being burned," but the bill
was signed into law by President
Jimmy Carter in Nov. 1977. An active
pilot, flight instructor and aviation
business owner, Haydu also was in-
strumental in starting a new group,
Women Military Pilots, which was
later changed to Women Military Avi-
ators to incorporate women other than
pilots. Her WASP uniform can be seen
on display at the Smithsonian Air &
Space Museum in Washington, D.C.
and she wrote a book detailing her
WASP experience, entitled Letters
Home 1944-1945. For all of her con-
tributions to her country and to the
field of aviation, Haydu was inducted
into the Aviation Hall of Fame in 2000.
"It's hard to believe that almost 70
years ago, these gutsy ladies stepped
into the cockpits of fighter planes to
serve their country in its time of need,
and have been breaking barriers for
women ever since," said Fantasy of
Flight founder and creator Kermit
Weeks. "It is my extreme privilege to
welcome them to Fantasy of Flight to
share their amazing stories first hand."
In the end, only 1,830 of the 25,000
applicants were accepted into the pro-
gram, and 1,074 of those women
earned their silver WASP wings.
Their indomitable founder, Jackie
Cochran, became the first civilian to
receive the U.S. Army Distinguished
Service Medal for her vision and lead-
ership-of the WASP program.
The third and final event in the
"Living History" series will take place
June 20 with a Military Collectors
Show and re-enactment in which sev-
eral aviation heroes will speak. Cost of
each "Living History" symposium is
included with Fantasy of Flight ad-
mission, which is $28.95 for adults,
$14.95 for children ages 6-15, plus 7
percent sales tax. Children 5 and
younger are free. Discounts are avail-
able for groups of 15 or more.


Cruise lines refund


fuel surchares


TALLAHASSEE: Attorney Gen-
eral Bill McCollum today announced
that his office has reached a resolution
with two cruise lines over the impo-
sition of a retroactively-imposed fuel
surcharge on cruise passengers.
Oceania Cruises and Classic
Cruises Holdings, which does busi-
ness as Regent Seven Seas Cruises,
have separately agreed to refund ap-
proximately $3 million to consumers
nationwide who were charged the fuel
surcharge after they had booked their
cruises. "Our guests and our resi-
dents deserve the most accurate in-
formation about the costs of their va-
cations," said Attorney General
McCollum. "I appreciate this resolu-
tion, which will not only return funds
to the affected consumers, but will
also uphold Florida's reputation as an
attractive vacation destination."
SThe agreements were reached af-
ter the Attorney General's Economic
Crimes Division received several
hundred complaints from around the
country about the entire cruise line
industry because cruise lines were
retroactively charging a fuel supple-
ment charge after cruises had been
booked and deposits had been made
by consumers. Under the agreements
signed today, all consumers who were


retroactively charged a fuel supple-
ment will be refunded the full cost of
the surcharge. In the future, the
cruise lines must also ensure clear
and conspicuous disclosure of any fuel
supplement charges at the time the
reservations are made, as well as in
their advertisements.
Oceania will pay over $2.1 million
in restitution and Classic Cruise Hold-
ings will pay more than $1 million in
restitution, a small portion of which
may be in the form of onboard credits
for consumers who have not yet
sailed. The two companies both of
which fully cooperated with the in-
vestigation will contact consumers
eligible for refunds and must report to
the Attorney General's Office on the
status of refunds within 30 days.
Consumers who believe they have
been improperly charged surcharges
may file complaints with the Attor-
ney General's Office by calling the
fraud hotline at 1-866-966-7226 or by
visiting the Attorney General's web-
site at http://myfloridalegal.com.
Similar settlements were reached
last year with Royal Caribbean,
Celebrity Cruises, and Carnival and
its subsidiary cruise lines, resulting in
another $61 million in consumer re-
imbursement.


Prep Time: 20 min
Total Time: 1 hour 55 min
Makes: 8 servings


INGREDIENTS:
Peach-Mango Salsa
1/4 cup lime juice
1 tablespoon honey
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 medium mango, cut lengthwise in
half, pitted and chopped (1 cup)
2 cups chopped peeled peaches
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1 tablespoon finely chopped bell
pepper

Salmon
1 untreated cedar plank, 16x6x2 inches
1 large salmon fillet (about 2 Ib)
1/4,cup packed brown sugar

DIRECTIONS:
1. In medium bowl, mix lime juice,
honey and salt; toss with
remaining salsa ingredients. Cover
and refrigerate at least 1 hour.
Meanwhile, soak cedar plank in
water at least 1 hour.
2. Heat coals or gas grill for direct
heat. Place salmon, skin side
down, on cedar plank. Make
diagonal cuts in salmon every 2
inches, without cutting through the
skin. Rub brown sugar over
salmon.
3. Place cedar plank with salmon on
grill. When cedar plank begins to
smoke, cover grill. Cover and grill
salmon over medium heat 30 to 35
minutes or until salmon flakes
easily with fork. Remove salmon
from plank, using large spatula.
Serve with salsa.


HOW-TO:
* A mango has a long flat seed inside
which is the same color as the flesh.
Use a paring knife to cut the flesh and
skin from each of the flat sides as
close to the seed as possible. Cut the
skin away from the edge of the seed,
and then cut off the flesh. Discard the
seed. Score the flesh to the skin in the
remaining sides. Push inward on the
skin (turn inside out), and scrape off
the fruit. It's now ready for chopping.
SUCCESS:
*Make sure the cedar plank you use is
untreated because of its direct contact
with the food and so there are no
unpleasant odors. Check local lumber
suppliers; there's a good chance of
finding this size piece in the "odds and
ends" bin.

What you need to know about parking, parties,

prices, police, performances, pirates and the parade.


BY FRANK R. CARRERAS III
PINELLAS NEWS
The 2009 Gasparilla Festival is upon us and
before you rush down to the parade there are a
few things you want to remember tomake sure
you don't run into any problems.
Parking
As is the case every year, expect big crowds.
Parking can be a headache depending on where'
you settle in. Know the parking rules and pick
a general area where you can park legally and
still be close to the parade. If you're planning on
parking illegally and paying the fine, devise a
new plan. This year the Tampa Police Depart-
ment will be towing rather than handing out
tickets.
Try the Centro Ybor Parking garage or other
garages near Channelside. The trolleys will be
running all day so you can easily get your des-
tination, but don't forget to bring cash. Con-
sider buying a one day Unlimited Ride Pass for
$4.
Throughout downtown there will be various
garages and lots available to the public for park-
ing. You cah also park at Raymond James Sta-
dium for free in Lots 1 and 2. The roundtrip
shuttle will be running out of Ray Jay from 9
a.m. to 8 p.m. The cost to ride is $10 and will
take parade-goers to route locations like Hyde
Park Avenue and DeLeon Street.
Parade Route
The parade runs from 2-5 p.m., Saturday,
Feb. 7. The route begins at the intersection of
Bayshore Boulevard and Bay to Bay Boulevard.
From there it continues north to the Platt Street
bridge, where it turns east onto Channelside
Drive, north onto Florida Ave and the continues
east to the its on Jackson Street.
Seating
If you want to avoid crowds of bead seekers
but still want a shot at adding to your collection
there are a limited amount of bleacher seats
available. Tickets are $26.17 and can bepur-
chased by phone at 813-254-8844.
Bathrooms
Plenty of portable toilets will be positioned
along the parade route and other surrounding
areas, but remember that the lines are typically
long so don't wait until the breaking point.
If portable toilets don't suit your taste, the
Publix on Bayshore Boulevard will be offering
the use of its restrooms for parade partici-


pants-but again be prepared to wait in long space, vehicles, weapons, or advertising of an
lines. For those closer to the parade Hyde Park any product or service.
Village will also have restrooms available to the
public Gasparilla Invasion


ATMs
Remember to bring enough cash for parking,
food and beverages. Most of the vendors at the
parade accept cash only, so get it beforehand. If
you forget or don't have the time, there will be
ATMs available- that's right, expect long lines.
Prohibited Items
Pets are allowed in some areas, but not all, so
check it out if you're unsure. But streets will be
packed, and it may be a good idea to leave your
pets at home. Strollers are allowed but must be
stored in reserved seating areas. The following
items are prohibited at the event: glass con-
tainers, coolers (except small, soft-sided cool-
ers or lunch bags for child care or medical
needs), tents, fence, stakes or rope to reserve

The Jose Gasparilla sets sail at the south
end of the Hillsborough Bay at 11:30 a.m. and

Entertainment
