Crist says

seagrass

should

be saved

TAMPA Governor Charlie Crist
proclaimed the month of March Sea-
grass Awareness Month, on Tuesday,
and celebrated the official opening of
the new educational exhibit at the
Florida Aquarium entitled Seagrass.
Gov. Crist spoke about the joint
venture between the aquarium and
The Ocean Foundation and discussed
the importance of seagrass to the Bay
Area.
"Seagrasses are essential to the
ecology of Florida's waters, especially
Tampa Bay," Governor Crist said.
"Preserving and protecting the state's
seagrasses is critical not only to our
marine environment, but also to our
economy and quality of life."
Gov. Crist was joined by Thomrn
Stork, president and chief executive
officer for The Florida Aquarium and
Mark J. Spalding, president of The
Ocean Foundation.
"We are pleased to be working with
The Ocean Foundation on this unique
educational partnership to encourage
awareness of the region's seagrass
beds," Stork said. "With nearly
700,000 visitors to the aquarium each
year, the exhibit will engage visitors
about current protection efforts while
at the same time aid The Ocean Foun-
dation's restoration efforts."
Florida's multimillion-dollar recre-
ational and commercial fishing indus-
try depends on healthy seagrasses to
protect young fish and shellfish, coral
reefs and other marine life, including
sea turtles, manatees and wading
birds. Florida is home to seven
species of seagrasses. One of the most
productive communities on earth, sea-
grasses are flowering underwater
grasses found in estuaries, lagoons
and shallow, open shelves off Florida's
coast. A critical marine habitat, sea-
grasses provide a nursery ground for
marine life and maintain water quality
and clarity by stabilizing bottom sedi-
ments and filtering nutrients from
storm water runoff.
"Florida's seagrass beds serve as a
backbone to our waters, serving not
only as a nursery to a variety of
species, but also as a nutrient filter,"
said Spalding. "By restoring sea-
grasses through our Restore-a-Scar
initiative we are also restoring the
health of our waterways."
SOftentimes, seagrass meadows
sustain damage from boat propellers,
anchors and vessel groundings that
leave a scar and can restrict the move-
ment of marine wildlife or eventually
destroy the whole seagrass bed. To
help restore damaged seagrass beds,
The Ocean Foundation's Restore-a-
Scar program will use innovative sea-
grass recovery techniques to mini-
mize the damage and allow the
seagrass to re-colonize over a period
of 18 to 24 months. In 1995, Florida
had a reported 2.6 million acres of sea-
grass, with more than 173,960 acres
having propeller scars.


Eggers and Kynes get
ready for the Mar. 10
Municipal Elections.

BY CHRISTINA CASADONTE
STAFF WRITER
Two seasoned city commissioners
will vie for the position of Mayor in
Dunedin's municipal elections March
10.


Current Mayor Bob Hackworth,
53, who lost his bid in November for
the U.S. House seat held by Bill
Young, will not be running for re-elec-
tion.
The Mayoral candidates, Dave Eg-
gers, 51, and Deborah Kynes, 58, both
have a demonstrated commitment to
serving their local communities as
volunteers and public servants. Ac-
cording to their Websites, if elected,
the candidates even intend to priori-
tize many of the same things.


Both candidates express a com-
mitment to maintaining Dunedin's
identity as a unique place with a small-
town feel and believe the current eco-
nomic climate provides the perfect
opportunity to formulate plans, im-
prove infrastructure, and fortify the
city's vision for the future.
"We have to get things in place so
we are ready for the next wave of
growth and development," Eggers
said.

Rays catcher Dion Navarro takes a hard swing on Wednesday, as the Rays kicked off their 12th Grapefruit League season against the Cincinati
Reds at Charlotte Sorts Park..The rays will travel to Clearwater on Saturday to face the Phillies in an October re-match.


CLEARWATER Call it the Feb-
ruary Classic. Call it the October-do-
over. Call it whatever you want, but
this Saturday, February 28, the Bay
Area will be the center of the baseball
universe for the much-anticipated re-
match of Major League Baseball's two
reigning champs.
The World Series Champion
Philadelphia Phillies will play host to
last year's American League Cham-
pion Tampa Bay Rays in a game that
will have visitors and locals packing
the stands of Clearwater's Bright


House Field.
Tickets .for the game, which is
scheduled to start at 1:05, have al-
ready sold out.
"This is what Spring Training is all
about," said Kevin Smith, director of
the St. Pete/Clearwater Sports Com-
mission. "To have baseball of this cal-
iber being played in such an intimate
setting, and to have great weather all
but guaranteed is exactly why Major
League Baseball has called the St.
Pete/Clearwater area its Spring Train-
ing home for more than 80 years."


Fans unable to make it to the Rays-
Phillies redo next Saturday, there's
good news: the Rays will return to
the area to play American League
East rival, the Toronto Blue Jays, at
nearby Dunedin Stadium, on March
13 and March 20.
Area fans will get a special treat as
both teams will also host exhibition

Abilities celebrates anniversary March 10


BY CHRISTINA CASADONTE
STAFF WRITER
ST. PETERSBURG Abilities
Foundation is celebrating its 20th
Abilities Wine Festival by offering
tickets at lower prices than last year's
award-winning event.
The annual event, named "Best
Wine Tasting" by Weekly Planet five
times, is set for March 7 at Tropicana
Field.In addition to over 400 wines
from distributors around the world,
the event will feature 400 auction
items, live entertainment, and food
from 40 gourmet restaurants, includ-


ing Parkshore Grill, Colombia, and
The Melting Pot.
Over the past two decades, the
event has raised over $3.2 million dol-
lars to further the Foundation's mis-
sion of helping people with disabilities
obtain jobs and affordable housing.
"Achievements of this magnitude
don't happen, however, without the
generous and long-standing support
of distributors, sponsors, and pa-
trons," Abilities Foundation president
and CEO Frank De Lucia said in a
press release.
De Lucia explained that the reduc-
tion in ticket prices was an ideal way


to thank its many patrons for years of
support and respond to the grave eco-
nomic climate.
"We thought it would be a good
time to provide a break in the prices,"
De Lucia said.
The tasting begins with a VIP re-
ception from 6-7 p.m., followed by the
Grand Tasting and Silent Auction,
which runs from 7-9 p.m.
The VIP access allows patrons an
extra hour to explore the food, wine,
and entertainment options before the
more-crowded Grand Tasting begins.

ST. PETERSBURG Citing "crit-
ically low" numbers of available
books, Goodwill Industries is kicking
off a book drive on Mar. 1, to support
its child literacy program, BookWorks.
During March and April, people in
Pinellas, Hillsborough, Pasco, Polk,
Hernando, and Marion counties are
asked to donate new or like-new
books for children ages 2-5.
Chris Ward of Goodwill-Suncoast,
the largest branch of over 180 Good-

program's demand for books.
"Readers are saying, 'We need

meeting for

budget cuts
PINELLAS COUNTY Pinellas
County officials want feedback from
residents as the county prepares to
cut 20 percent from the general fund
during the next fiscal year.
Pinellas County government will
host the first of three public budget
meetings on Tuesday, March 3, at
Palm Harbor University High School.
The meetings will give Pinellas
County residents the chance to voice
their concerns and make suggestions
as to which programs are expendable:
Mary Burrell, the operations man-
ager for the Pinellas County Board .bf
County Commissioners, said the
budget cuts come in the wake of the
national economic downturn and
plunging real estate values.
"The sharp decrease in county rev-
enue reflects the national economic
crisis, local reductions in real estate
values, and property tax caps. Com-
missioners are currently involved in
the process of setting priorities on the

school children at Head Start centers
and other locations. After reading to
the children, the volunteer then pres-
ents each child with a personalized
book to take home.
"These books go to children from
low-income families," Ward said. "It
might be the first book in their home."
Last year, Goodwill-Suncoast's
BookWorks program and its 65 vol-
unteers reached 9,000 children in six
counties and distributed nearly 25,000
books.
"Sometimes we read to a child
more than once," Ward said. "We are
hoping that they are using the books
to build a library at home."
Ward explained that the idea be-
hind the program is to cultivate a love
for reading at a young age and pro-
mote literacy.
"Literacy is one of the things we
found that gives people problems in
getting employment," she said. Ward
went on to explain that by working to
increase literacy rates, the program
works to further Goodwill's mission of
increasing employment opportunities

Eggers and Kynes face off in Mayoral election

ELECTION continued from page 1


Dave Eggers
Dave Eggers has served as a Dunedin
commissioner for nearly six years. He owns
Centerpointe Realty of Dunedin, is past
chairman of the board for the Dunedin Cham-
'ber of Commerce and currently serves as
Vice-Chairman of the Metropolitan Planning
Committee.
Eggers believes his educational back-
ground in engineering and finance will be
particularly beneficial in the next three years.
"My emphasis is on budget and fiscal re-
sponsibility," he said.
As commissioner, Eggers helped cut
nearly $3 million out of Dunedin's budget
without cutting operations by implementing
"creative ideas from employees and citizens
and re-organization".
Eggers said he intends to continue to
work to balance Dunedin's budget.
"I feel fairly confident that we have an-
other $3 million to get through and we will do
so fairly painlessly," he said.
In addition to focusing on over-spending,
Eggers distinguishes himself through his ex-
pressed commitment to fostering diversity.
As commissioner, Eggers worked closely
with minority communities.
"I grew up overseas so it is a part of who
I am," he explained. "It obviously is 'the only
thing to do, it is the right thing to do."
Eggers has been married for five years
and has two adult children. He is an avid
sports fan and coached for Dunedin National
Little League for over 14 years.


Deborah Kynes
Deborah Kynes, an attorney, wife, and
mother of two adult children, has been a
commissioner for nearly 10 years. Kynes has
held chairman positions at the county and
state levels and has volunteered for dozens
of local organizations. She received the hon-
ors of Volunteer of the Year and Sustainer of
the Year by the Junior League of Clearwater-
Dunedin and was named Ms. Delightful
Dunedin by the Dunedin Chamber of Com-
merce.
Kynes, if elected, wants to focus on eco-
nomic diversification in order to bring in jobs.
"We are in danger of being a bedroom
community," she said.
She said she would support the re-devel-
opment of the Neilson site into a college and
continue to support a form-based code ap-
proach to zoning.
"We can use this downtime to get ready
for the future," she said. "Form-based codes
will give us the truest assurance of quality
development."
As commissioner, Kynes pushed for many
environmentally friendly initiatives, includ-.
ing the new "LEED" certified Community
Center. According to her Website, she would
continue to focus on environmental respon-
sibility through the promotion of renewable
energy sources and open space preserva-
tion.
Despite the challenging economic times,
Kynes said she is optimistic about the op-
portunities for Dunedin.

ST. PETERSBURG Gov.
Charlie Crist launched the 2009
spring training baseball season by
hosting the Governor's Baseball
Dinner at St. Petersburg's Tropi-
cana Field on Feb. 23. The event
brought together more than 200
representatives from Major
League Baseball and over 500 fans
and sponsors to celebrate base-
ball's economic contributions to
the state of Florida.
The event, restored in 2008 by
Gov. Crist after more than a
decade, honored Florida's two Ma-
jor League Baseball clubs, 14 other
Major League clubs who train in
Florida, and the 29 Minor League
clubs who play throughout the
spring and summer.
"These baseball teams are a
major part of Florida's economy,
and a major part of our $36-billion-
year sports industry," said Gover-
nor Crist. "Spring training alone
generates more than $450 million


a year in Florida. During historic
economic times like what we now
face, it is more important than ever
that we support and build on suc-
cessful industries like baseball."
The dinner featured seven
members of the Baseball Hall of
Fame including Wade Boggs of
Tampa, who played for the Boston
Red Sox, New York Yankees and
Tampa Bay Rays; former Philadel-
phia Phillies pitcher Robin
Roberts; Al Kaline, longtime right
fielder for the Detroit Tigers;
Pittsburgh Pirates second base-
man Bill Mazeroski; Tony Perez,
who played for the Cincinnati
Reds, Montreal Expos, Boston Red
Sox and Philadelphia Phillies; Mike
Schmidt, third baseman for the
Phillies; and Phil Niekro, who
spent most of his career with the
Atlanta Braves.
A portion of the night was ded-
icated to the legacy of Hall of
Famer Hank Aaron. The longtime


player for the Milwaukee and At-
lanta Braves made history nearly
35 years ago when he hit his
record 715th home run on April 8,
1974, beating the home-run record
long held by Babe Ruth.
Veteran Houston Astros broad-
caster Milo Hamilton, a member of
the broadcasters' wing of the Base-
ball Hall of Fame, served as the
event's Master of Ceremonies.
Major League Baseball Commis-
sioner Bud Selig will offer remarks
about baseball and its more than
century-long history in Florida.
Commissioner Selig joined Gov.
Crist in presenting a check to the
Boys & Girls Clubs of America,
the official charity of Major League
Baseball.
The Grapefruit League, the
terni used to describe Florida
spring training games, generates
more than $450 million for the
Florida economy each year, ac-
cording to a survey originally pub-


lished in 2000 and updated in 2005.
In 2008, more than 1.6 million
baseball fans attended a spring
training game in Florida, while an-
other 1.4 million attended Minor
League games during the spring
and summer of 2008.
Gov. Crist also presented five
local baseball and softball teams
with the Governor's Award. Re-
cipients included the Citrus Park
Little League 2008 World Series
Team, the Citrus Park Big League
Girls Softball team, the Gulf Coast
League Phillies, the 2008 Gulf
Coast League Champions, and the
Daytona Cubs, the 2008 Florida
State League Champions.
On Feb. 25, Gov. Crist threw
the ceremonial first pitch in the
2009 Spring Training opener be-
tween the Houston Astros and the
Washington Nationals at Osceola
County Stadium in Kissimmee.

PORT CHARLOTTE The
American League Champion Tampa
Bay Rays kicked off the start of
spring training with a 7- 0 loss to
the Cincinnati Reds on Wednesday,
in front of the largest crowd to at-
tend a. Spring Training game at
Charlotte Sports Park..
With 6,028 in attendance for the
Rays 12 Grapfruit League season,
the Rays showed off the team's
digs and raised a replica of the
American League championship
banner. But the Rays couldn't
muster a win and many fans were
delayed in heavy traffic.
Crawford was one of four Ray's
players who managed a hit, as the
team, struggled against pitchers
Edinson Volquez and Johnny Cueto.
Crawford's single to left field with
one out in the bottom of the first in-
ning marked the first hit in the
newly renovated stadium.
Carlos Hernandez, an offseason
acquisition who is recovering from
a series of shoulder surgeries, held
the Reds to two hitless innings
while Jason Hammel surrendered
two strikeouts and three hits in two
scoreless innings.
The Reds' bats lit up in the fifth
inning when Rays' pitcher Randy
Choate took the mound, giving up
five hits and five runs.


Fans praised the new stadium
improvements to the stadium but
most of them didn't show up until
midway through the game, due to
heavy traffic.
Traffic problems on El Jobean
Road caused 60 to 90 minute delays
as hundreds of fans negotiated the
final two miles to the stadium and
funneld into the one lane parking lot
entrance.
Mike Kalt, the Rays' senior vice
president of development and busi-
ness affairs, said that he was
thrilled about opening day and,
aside from the traffic problems, he
felt everything ran smoothly.
"We're thrilled," Kalt said. "It's
great to have people in here enjoy-
ing themselves, but we have to fig-
ure out how to get cars into the
park." Kalt noted that it was the
first time they had traffic problems
for a spring training game and took
it as a good sign.
J The Rays have addressed the
parked issue and have devised new
parking policies to increase the flow
of traffic for the remaining homes
games.
The game was the first in 7
years at Charlotte Sports Park in 7
years. The Texas Rangers, who
called the stadium home 15 years,
played their last game at the sta-
dium in 2002.
