Rouson runs for city council


BY CHRISTINA CASADONTE
STAFF WRITER
ST. PETERSBURG After
weeks of speculation on the Tampa
Bay political blogosphere, Angela
Rouson, former Chair of the Pinellas
County Housing Authority, filed to
run for the St Petersburg City Coun-
cil District 5 seat Wednesday after-
noon.
She arrived at City Hall just before
4 p.m., joined by her political con-
sultants Barry Edwards and Peter
Schorsch-the same political team
charged with managing the campaign
of current District 5 council member
and mayoral hopeful Jaime Bennett.


Rouson, the wife of State Rep.
Darryl Rouson, D-St. Petersburg, will
compete for the council seat against
Steve Kornell, a social worker for the
public school system.
Rouson's move to file came just
hours after resigning as Chair of the
Authority's Board of Commissioners,
a position she held since July 2006.
She said she will remain on the Au-
thority's board and continue her in-
volvement on a number of other com-
munity boards, including her role as
Chair of the Authority's Finance
Committee, to which she was ap-
pointed by Gov. Charlie Crist in 2008.
Referencing Bennett's successful
8-year tenure as council member of


the district, Rouson said District 5
has benefited from "active, responsi-
ble leadership."
"I intend to continue in this tradi-
tion while emphasizing the needs of
the community that have yet to be
met," she explained.
According to Rouson, this includes
the development of successful busi-
nesses and the expansion of eco-
nomic opportunities within the dis-
trict.
"Our neighborhoods need more at-
tention and city resources," said Rou-
son. "I want to be on City Council to
be the most effective voice for our
community."
In response to Rouson's entering

of the race, Kornell said he would
simply remain focused on the issues.

going to follow my plan," he said.

health

ST. PETERSBURG The
Florida Department of Health re-
leased a new community resource
for those working on behalf of
Florida's young children.
The Pregnancy and Young Child
Profile Tool, available-to the public
through the Department of Health's
Community Health Assessment Re-
source Tool Set (CHARTS), is the
first tool in the country to provide
web-accessible information about
county-specific information regard-
ing the health and well-being of chil-
dren and the mothers to which they
are born.
"The purposes of the profile are
to make data related to the health
and well-being of Florida's mothers
and young children readily avail-
able," stated a Department of
Health press release. The intention
is that better accessibility of infor-
mation will "encourage communi-
ties to take a more holistic look at
young children and the context in
which they live."
In the past, community organi-
zations and private citizens trying to
gather information specifically about
young children had to scan multiple
Websites and call various state
agencies to get specific answers.
According to Doc Kokel from the
Department of Health, the request
for the compilation of the informa-
tion initially came from Whole Child
Leon when they were conducting
research on the well-being of chil-
dren born to unhealthy mothers.
The indicators included in the
profile uses absolute number
.counts, standardized rates or per-

Domestic violence on the rise


ST. PETERSBURG As the re-
cession deepens, the Florida Coali-
tion Against Domestic Violence re-
ports a 37 percent increase in the
demand for emergency services and
shelter for victims of domestic vio-
lence. The Coalition, meeting this
week in Orlando to look at possible
solutions, told Florida legislators that
domestic violence is increasing and
becoming more severe. Additionally,
they say, the number of people seek-
ing shelter, food, cash, and counseling
in an effort to get out of danger is ris-


ing fast.
Dr. Eileen Abel is a professor at
University of Central Florida and an
expert on intimate partner violence.
She says that, while domestic violence
is not caused by the recession, bad
times aggravate the problem of people
feeling they need to control their part-
ners, which can lead to violence.
"As economic times get worse, as
pressure gets worse, as there is more
stress, as people feel more out of con-
trol, the more likely it is going to be
that you're going to see more abuse."


Tiffany Carr, executive director of
the Coalition, says this has Florida do-
mestic violence centers stretched to
the breaking point, and the need may
continue to grow.
"What domestic violence centers
do in Florida, is they save the lives of
women and children. My biggest fear
is that without those resources, we
would see an enormous increase in
domestic violence homicides."
Dr. Eileen Abel says many women
feel trapped in abusive relationships
because they do not have a job, their


partner controls all the money, and
they feel they have no place to go.
She says domestic violence centers
offer women a safe way out, but many
blame themselves, and are afraid to
take the first step.
"Victims don't deserve to be bat-
tered, If you know someone who is
being battered, you need to try to help
them and not judge them. Try to get
them to a safe place, try to get them to
a shelter."
The Coalition says that last year,
more than 14,500 women and children


sought shelter. So far this year, more
than 8,000 have already needed a roof
over their heads, an 800-person in-
crease over the comparable period in
2008.

report is at www.fcadv.orgfor trial ad-
vocacy by U.S. News and World Re-
port in 2008, goes back "several

Toll plazas redone


OCOEE, FL Florida's Turn-
pike Enterprise has begun a $2 mil-
lion project to renovate the East and
West Toll Plazas on the Pinellas Bay-
way system.
The renovations consist of the re-
moval and replacement of existing
toll plaza concrete pavement, toll
booths and equipment, roofing, sig-
nage, lighting and pavement mark-
ings. The East Plaza administration
building and SunPass Customer
Service Center-building will also un-
dergo complete interior and exterior
renovation work to improve public
access to the Sunpass Customer
Service Center reception area. The
West Plaza administration building
will undergo minor interior and exte-
rior renovations.
The renovation work at each toll
plaza requires closing each individual


toll lane for about 30 days. Only one
lane will be closed at any given time.
Work will be completed at the West
Plaza before work begins at the East
Plaza. The projected schedule for
lane closures is as follows:
West Plaza
Lane 3 April 16 to May 6
Lane 2 May 7 to June 9
Lane 1 -June 10 to July 10
East Plaza
Lane 4 SunPass-Only No long-
term lane closure
Lane 3 -July 15 to August 21
Lane 2 August 25 to September
25
Lane 1- September 28 to October
29
The toll plaza renovation project
does not include the installation of
additional SunPass-only lanes. The
existing bridge is too narrow to allow


for conversion of a mixed-use lane to
a SunPass-only lane. Additionally,
the current lane configuration ac-
commodates the thousands of visi-
tors who visit Fort DeSoto Park and
don't use SunPass.
Renovation of the SunPass .Cus-
tomer Service Center will begin on
July 15. A temporary office trailer
will be located in the East Plaza park-
ing lot to serve as the Sunpass Cus-
tomer Service Center building during
the renovation of the existing build-
ing. Renovation work is scheduled to
be completed in late October and the
new Sunpass Customer Service Cen-
ter is scheduled to reopen in early
November. The West Plaza building
renovation work will not affect mo-
torists and is scheduled to be com-
plete in mid-July.


Woods, Phelps top list


LONDON, April 16, 2009 -
Michael Phelps and Tiger Woods
head one of the strongest teams of
American sports stars ever nomi-
nated for the Laureus World Sports
Awards, following a ballot by the
world's media from a record 112
countries.
The 10th Laureus World Sports
Awards, which recognize sporting
achievement during the period Janu-
ary 1, 2008 December 31, 2008,
are regarded as the premier hbnours
on the international sporting calen-
dar.
Phelps, who won eight Olympic
swimming gold medals in Beijing,
beating the record of Laureus Acad-
emy member Mark Spitz who won
seven in Munich in 1972, is nomi-
nated for the Laureus World Sports-
man of the Year Award, while golfer
Tiger Woods is on the short list for
the Laureus World Comeback of the
Year Award after returning follow-
ing a knee injury to win the US Open
last June. It is the eighth time Woods
has been nominated for a Laureus
Award a record.
Another golfer nominated is Ap-
thony ,Kim, ,23, ,whohas proved an


exciting addition to the US PGA
Tour, winning two tournaments in
2008 and playing an important part in
the United States' victory in the Ry-
der Cup, famously beating Sergio
Garcia 5&4 in the first match of the-
singles.
Mexico's Lorena Ochoa, the out-
standing women's golfer in the
world, who plays mostly on the US
LPGA Tour, has been nominated for
the Laureus World Sportswoman of
the Year Award, along with Alpine
World Cup skiing champion Lindsey
Vonn and five-times Wimbledon win-
ner Venus Williams,
Boston Celtics have been nomi-
nated for the Laureus World Team of
the Year Award after they beat Los
Angeles Lakers to win the NBA
play-offs for a record 17th time.
Three Americans are nominated
for the Laureus World Action
Sportsperson of the Year Award:
Freeskier Tanner Hall, who has now
become the most successful Winter
X Games athlete ever with seven
gold medals, legendary surfer Kelly
Slater, who won a record ninth world
title.'at the age of 36,.and snow-
boarder, Shaun White, who won theZ


Winter X Games Superpipe gold and
Slopestyle bronze.
April Holmes, the world's fastest
female amputee who won the 100
metres T44 gold medal in the Beijing
Paralympic Games and is the cur-
rent world record holder at 100, 200
and 400 metres, is nominated for the
Laureus Disability Award. An all-star
high school and college athlete, she
lost her left leg below the knee after
she was involved in a train accident
in 2001.
Laureus World Sports Academy
member Monica Seles said: "This is
a fantastic result for American sport
with ten nominations. What is so im-
pressive is that there are so many
nominations in so many different cat-
egories. What Michael Phelps
achieved in Beijing was historic, but
Lindsey Vonn's dominance on the
slopes was amazing, and you wonder
if Kelly Slater's record of nine world
surfing tiles will ever be beaten. And
I think everyone admires the
courage and inner strength that April
Holmes has shown to achieve what
she has."

Tight rules on turtles


PINELLAS COUNTY Florida
.moved toward adopting strong con-
servation measures for the harvest of
freshwater turtles at the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion's (FWC) meeting in Tallahassee
on Wednesday.
FWC commissioners directed staff
to finalize a draft rule that bans the
commercial take or sale of wild fresh-
water turtles. The draft rule will be
considered for approval at the June
meeting in Crystal River.
"When staff members began hear-
ing reports of large harvests of fresh-
water turtles from Florida waters,
they brought the concerns to the
Commission," said Rodney Barreto,
chairman of the FWC. "As conserva-
tion managers, going forward with
these measures is the right thing to
do."
Tim Breault, the FWC's director of
Habitat and Species Conservation,
presented the draft rule to the Com-
mission.

Sunday Ciclovia
rescheduled

CLEARWATER, Clearwater
has rescheduled its Sunday Ciclovia
event that was canceled due to in-
clement weather in March. The
new date for the event is Sunday,
April 26.
Sunday Ciclovia, whidhtakes its
name from the Spanish word for
"bike path," is now one of the city's
annual Fun 'n Sun Festival. events.
From 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., two miles of
Cleveland Street from Clearwater
Harbor to Gulf-to-Bay-Boulevard in
the East Gateway District will be
closed to motorized traffic and open
for people.
Participants of any age and skill
level can bike, stroll, skate, or take
part in open-air fitness, sports and
dance classes that will be offered on
the street. Representatives from
bike shops, bike clubs and other or-
ganizations promoting recreation
and healthy living will line the
street. Many restaurants and re-
tailers will be open for business.
Clearwater is following the lead
of Bogota, Colombia, where the
first Ciclovia was initiated in 1976.
Since then, cities around the globe
such as London, Paris, Mexico City,
Guadalajara, New York,. Miami,
Portland, El Paso and San Francisco
have hosted their own car-free
events-some holding them
weekly.

"This draft rule represents the
most comprehensive set of protec-
tions and conservation measures for
freshwater turtles in the United
States," Breault said. "Few places in
North America have the rich diver-
sity of turtles that we have here in
Florida, and this proposed rule en-
sures their long-term survival."
The draft rule also would prohibit
taking turtles from the wild that are
listed on Florida's imperiled species
list, as well as species that look sim-
*ilar to the imperiled species, which
include common snapping turtles and.
cooters. In addition, collecting fresh-
water turtle eggs would be prohib-
ited. Individuals would be allowed to
take one freshwater turtle per day
per person from the wild for non-
commercial use. The transport of
more than one turtle per day would
be prohibited.
Some turtle farms depend on col-
lection of wild freshwater turtles. Un-
der the proposed draft rule, turtle

farms, under a tightly controlled
process, would be allowed to collect
turtles for breeding purposes for a
two-year period. However, staff is
proposing a review of this process by
2011, and turtle collection for farms
will end if no further action is taken
by the Commission after the review.
"This is the most significant con-
servation measure we have passed
during my time on the Commission,"
said Commissioner Brian Yablonski,
who was appointed to his second
term by Gov. Charlie Crist in 2008.
"Floridians will never know it, be-

insures safe return

CLEARWATER, FL On Satur-
day, May 9th, 2009, the Humane

crochip clinic for the low cost of
$15.00. The microchip clinic will be
held from 1:00 3:30 pm at the Hu-
mane Society of Pinellas (HSP) lo-
cated at 3040 State Road 590,
Clearwater, (727) 797-7722. Mi-
crochips will be administered on a
first come, first serve basis. We do
require proof of your pets' current
Rabies vaccine and valid county li-
cense, so don't forget to bring it
with you!
Each year more than 10 million
pets are lost. Fifty percent of dogs
and 75% of cats are without collars
by the time they reach a shelter.
Microchip IDs help insure your
pets are safe by giving them per-
manent identification. Pets with a
microchip ID have the best chance
of being reunited with their owners.
All animals adopted from HSP are
implanted with a microchip ID for
the safety of the animal in case it is
lost.
This will be the last opportunity
for the $15 Microchip Clinic from
the Humane Society of Pinellas be-
fore the 2009 hurricane season be-
gins. The next Microchip Clinic
will be December 5th, 2009.

2 tablespoons vegetable oil

1/4 cup sesame seed, toasted
DIRECTIONS

1. Place beef in shallow glass or plastic
dish or heavy-duty resealable plastic
bag. Pour teriyaki baste and glaze over
beef. Cover dish or seal bag and
refrigerate, stirring beef occasionally, at
least 4 hours but no longer than 24
hours.

2. Heat coals or gas grill for direct heat.
Remove beef from marinade; discard
marinade. Thread beef, bell pepper and
mushrooms alternately on each of six
15-inch metal skewers, leaving space
between each piece. Brush bell pepper
and mushrooms with oil. Sprinkle
kabobs with sesame seed.

3. Cover and grill kabobs 4 to 6 inches
from medium heat 15 to 20 minutes,
turning frequently, until beef is no longer
pink in center.

PURCHASING

When shopping for the ingredients for
this recipe, be sure to choose teriyaki
"baste and glaze" instead of the
marinade type of sauce. Teriyaki baste
and glaze will cling better to the beef
and will help the sesame seed adhere.

Crist encourages spending


TALLAHASSEE Governor Charlie Crist
today met with Florida realtors to discuss
Florida's housing market. Governor Crist en-
couraged first-time home buyers to take ad-
vantage of the tax credit made available through
the federal American Recovery and Reinvest-
ment Act of 2009. The $8,000 tax credit applies
to primary residences as long as they are pur-
chased before December 1, 2009.
"Even though today is Tax Day, first-time
Florida home buyers can still claim the tax sav-
ings on their 2008 tax return even if the clos-
ing is after today by requesting an extension
or filing an amended return," Governor Crist
said. "Or they can also claim it on 2009 tax re-
turn, which will be filed next year. Either way,
I., encourage Floridians and newcomers to
Florida to take advantage of this tax break and
bargain prices on Florida real estate."
Governor Crist also discussed his continued
commitment to reduce the tax burden on
Florida homeowners and business property
owners. He has proposes a set of property-tax

said. "We get students who come here specifi-
cally for this."
Interestingly, Coppock, a professed "sec-
ond-career lawyer," was a member of the
mock trial team that won the same competi-
tion for Stetson in 1996.
Trial advocacy competitions allow law stu-
dents to practice their trial skills before dis-
tinguished members of the law profession.
Teams are judged by their skills in case prepa-
ration, opening statements, use of facts, the
examination of lay and expert witnesses, and
closing arguments.
The team's next competition will be in Oc-
tober, but with two of the four current mem-
bers graduating, Coppock will be looking for
replacements.
He expects to have 75 to 90 second-year
law students tryout for a position on next
year's team.


reforms that builds upon previous legislation
resulting in the largest property tax cut in state
history.
The National Association of Realtors esti-
mates that the impact of the federal economic
stimulus package and lower interest rates will
result in approximately 900,000 additional
home sales in 2009 compared to conditions be-
fore the stimulus package. According to Fred-
die Mac, interest rates for a 30-year fixed-rate
mortgage averaged 4.87 percent for the week
of April 9, 2009, down significantly from the av-
erage rate of 5.97 percent in March 2008.

According tq the Florida Association of Re-
altors, Florida's existing home sales rose in
February, making it the sixth consecutive
month with an increase in sales activity. Exist-
ing home sales rose 20 percent in February
2009 compared to the number of homes sold in
February 2008. Statewide, existing condo sales
increased 25 percent over the total units sold in
January.


About the First-Time Florida Home Buyer
Tax Credit
For homes purchased before Dedember 1,
2009, the credit does not have to be paid back
unless the home ceases to be the taxpayer's
main residence within a three-year period fol-
lowing the purchase. First-time homebuyers
who purchase a home in 2009 can claim the
credit on either a 2008 tax return, which are
due today, or on a 2009 tax return, due April 15,
2010. If the purchase occurs after April 15,
2009, home buyers can still receive the credit
on a 2008 tax return by requesting an extension
of time to file or by filing an amended return.
Information about the tax credit for first-
time home buyers can be found at www.FlaRe-
covery.com in the "Tax Relief" section. For
more information about Florida's use of the
federal recovery dollars made available through
the federal American Recovery and Reinvest-
ment Act of 2009, please visit www.FlaRecov-
ery.com.

New rules


for Blue


Crabs
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) approved a rule on Thurs-
day that will establish administrative penalties
for violations of provisions of the Blue Crab Ef-
fort Management Program. This program was
developed by the FWC to manage the use of
traps in Florida's commercial blue crab fishery.
These administrative penalties are author-
ized by Florida statute (Section 379.366, ES.)
and will apply to violations such as untagged
traps, trap molestation, illegal barter of tags
and trap theft.
The new rule standardizes penalty assess-
ments by creating a tiered system that allows
the penalties to be assessed relative to the
severity of the violation and the number of pre-
vious violations up to the maximum amount al-
lowed by statute. This rule is consistent with
existing administrative penalty rules for the
stone crab and spiny lobster fisheries.This rule
takes effect on July 1;
