Senators

initiate

drywall

recall, ban

WASHINGTON, D.C. U.S.
Senators Bill Nelson and Mary Lan-
drieu filed legislation on Wednesday
aimed at initiating a recall and im-a
posing an immediate ban on tainted
building products from China, as
more and more people around the
country are reporting problems in
their homes built with imported
drywall.
The centerpiece of their legisla-
tion is a resolution pressing the
Consumer Product Safety Com-
mission i CPSC i for a recall on Chi-
nese-made drywall,
.P- based in part on
findings by a Florida
homebuilder and
state officials who

Landrieu's legisla-

federal testing labs
and the Environ-
menrtal Protectioni
Landrieu Agency 'to deter-
mine the level of
hazard posed by
certain chemicals and as yet
unidentified organic compounds in
the drywall.
In addition, the legislation calls
on the commission to issue an in-
terim ban on imports until it can
create federal drywall safety tan-
dards so consumers, are protected
in the future.
Among thdr things, the drywall
is linked to seeping sulfide gases
That can corrode electrical wiring
and components of air-conditioning
and other household appliances.

pressing the CPSC for a recall in
hopes of jump-starting a process for
helping affected homeowners with
the costs of repairs or replacement.
which under their legislation would
be the responsibility of. the manu-
facturers.
The potential scope of the prob-
lem is huge. Nelson represents
Florida, where an estimated 36,000
homes are believed to contain Chi-
nese-made drywall. Landrieu rep-'

Homeless housing project opens


PINELLAS COUNTY Grove
Park Village, a new development
dedicated to providing permanent'
housing for homeless persons, has
opened on Grove Park Avenue in
East Lealman. Twelve single occu-
pancy one and two-bedroom units
were developed by the St. Peters-
burg non-profit, Boley Centers, Inc,
aided with Pinellas County funding.
The homeless project received
$1.7 million in funding from Pinellas
County and other sources, including
the Pinellas County Housing Trust
Fund and the county's federal HOME


program. The property was also
placed in the County's Community
Land Trust, administered by the
Pinellas County Housing Finance Au-
thority, to preserve Grove Park Vil-
lage as affordable housing for the
long-term future.
Residents selected for housing at
Grove Park Village are admitted
through referrals from homeless
service providers. Residents must be
at or below 50 percent of area median
income. Applicants must meet the
basic eligibility criteria which in-
cludes verification of income and


Martian


homeless status.
"To further assist residents, case
management services are offered to
help with the transition from h6me-
lessness to permanent housing," said
Community Development Director
Anthony Jones. Case managers will
work directly with other agencies to
ensure services are coordinated as
needed. The agencies include Direc-
tions for Mental Health; the Suncoast
Centers for Mental Health; the Pinel-
las County Health Department and

NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Spirit qsed its navigation camera to take the images that have
been combined into a 180-degree view of the rover's surroundings during the 1,823rd Martian
day, or sol, of Spirit's surface mission. The center of the view. is toward the south-southwest.
SThe rover had' driven 23 feet, or 7 meters, eastward earlier on Sol 1823, part of maneuvering
to get Spirit into a favorable position for climbing onto the low plateau called 'Home Plate.'
However, after two driving attempts with negligible progress during the following three sols,
the royer team changed its strategy for getting to destinations south of Home Plate. The team
decided to drive Spirit at least partway around Home Plate, instead of ascending the northern
Sedge and taking a shorter route across the top of the plateau.

gets

federal


money


ATLANTA The U.S. Depart-
ment of Homeland Security's Fed-
eral Emergency Management
Agency (FEMA) has approved more
than $2.5 million for Florida to help
the South Florida Water Manage-
ment District cover the costs of
emergency equipment and opera-
tions during Tropical Storm Fay.
S The long-lived storm dumped as
much as 27 inches of rain on parts of
Florida and caused widespread
flooding in both urban and rural ar-
eas of the state. Flood water was
pumped from district drainage
canals into other drainage canals and
Lake Okeechobee. Through these
emergency operations, officials
were able to maintain water levels
at or below those of neighboring wa-
ter control districts drainage opera-
tions.
The federal funds will cover 75
percent of the total eligible cost-
$3,394,286. These operations took
place from Aug. 18 through Sept.
12, 2008 and covered nearly 40
pumping stations in south Florida.
"FEMA and the state of Florida
worked closely during Tropical
Storm Fay to make sure disaster re-
sponse and recovery went as
smoothly as possible," said FEMA
Regional Administrator Phil May.

ished at +11 for an 875 at the par-72,
7,031 yard Lake Jovita Golf and Coun-
try Club.
USF golfer Raj Nahal posted the
lowest Bulls score of the tournament
with a 2-under 70 on Tuesday. All five
USF golfers finished between a 70
and 74 during the final round. Rick
Kittelstad was also under par for the
day posting a 1-under 71 and Robby
Carl was even with a 72.
Leibel ended with a 73 in the final
round and a 219 (74-72-73) for the
tournament, finishing tied for 12th
with a +3. Carl finished'tied for 19th

Nahal was disqualified on day one but

The fifth place finish by the Bulls
was their second best finish in their
four years in the BIG EAST. USF fin-

and sixth last year.
S"The team finished up strong with
today's round." aidfUSF head coach
Jim Fee. "All of the players put pres-
sure on themselves to turn in good
scores today. Everyone was either
under or even par coming into the fi-
nal hole. I'm proud of the team with
the way they competed in this tour-
nament. Luke finished well in the
tournament tying for 12th individu-
ally. He is very talented player as a
freshman and he will continue to im-
prove during the summer and next
year. Raj played a great tournament
with two under par rounds. The un-
fortunate situation during the first
round that led to his disqualification
was disappointing. But otherwise he
had a very solid tournament. It was
great to see this team come together
' at the end of the year. They played as
a team, a very talented team, and
young team that will continue to
grow."

Bulls climb ranks


OCOEE, Fla. The University of
South Florida baseball team broke
into the national polls Monday as Col-
legiate Baseball Newspaper ranked
the Bulls No. 29 in its weekly list of
the top 30 teams in Division I.
No. 29 USF is 24-14 overall this
season and leads the BIG EAST Con-
ference with a 12-3 record.
Earlier this year, USF received
votes in the CBN Preseason Poll, the
oldest college baseball poll -dating
back to the 1957 season.
The Bulls are ranked during the
regular season for the first time since
Feb. 26, 2007, when the Bulls were
listed as No. 30 in the CBN poll.
In 2008, USF received preseason
votes in the National Collegiate Base-
ball Writers Association poll as well
as the CBN poll. In head coach Lelo
Prado's first season at USF the Bulls
received votes in three polls through-
out the season NCBWA (Feb. 19),
NCBWA (Feb. 26) and USA To-
day/ESPN Top 25 (April 2).
For the first time since joining the
league, USF has taken sole posses-
sion of the BIG EAST Conference


lead after sharing the top spot with
West Virginia the past two weeks.
USF has started the 2009 BIG
EAST season with a 12-3 record, the
best start since the Bulls went 16-2
during their 1996 conference season.
In 1996, USF won the regular season
Conference USA Championship and
finished second in the C-USA tour-
nament. That team also went 2-2 in
the NCAA Regionals.

listed below.

No clues in horse deaths Program

TSAALLAHASSE It is still un- signs of trauma-or disease that would l-- ook s for


clear what casued the deaths of 21
Palm Beach polo horses that'died un-
expectedly this past Sunday at the
Palm Beach polo torunament. Pre-
liminary results of necropsies, con-
ducted Tuesday afternoon on the
horses, have not identified a casue of
death according to Florida Agriculture
and Consumer Services Commis-
sioner Charles Bronson.
The necropsies found no remark-
able signs that could indicate a spe-
cific cause of death.
State officials will continue their
investigation and will be doing addi-
tional testing of tissue samples to de-
termine if they contain any toxins and,
will also be conducting laboratory
tests on blood samples. '

BRIEFS

Residents love their
neighborhood

PINELLAS COUNTY The
Board of County Commissioners
passed three items at its meeting
on April 21 to help preserve the
character of single-family residen-
tial neighborhoods. The re-zoning
will encourage the development of
single-family neighborhoods and re-
move commercial designated areas
which are viewed as an intrusion
to the vision of the area. The
agenda items were all public hear-
ings.
One of the items rezoned ap-
proximately 13.5 acres in the
Greater Ridgecrest Area, Dansville
and Baskins subdivisions to single-
family residential and preservation
conservation.
In another agenda itme, three
parcels totaling .87 acres located in
the Gooden Crossing area was
changed to single-family residen-
tial..Two of the three parcels are
presently single family residents,
and the other is a commercial build-
ing.
The third item rezoned two
parcels totaling approximately .34
acres in the Greater Ridgecrest
area to residential. The county
owns the parcels and is working in
conjunction with-the Friends of
Ridgecrest Homeowners Associa-
tion.


indicate an obvious cause of death,"
Bronson said. "Our specialists will
continue conducting more detailed
testing until we get to the bottom of
this tragedy."
State veterinary officials say the
'gross necropsies', which involve a
visual inspection of the organs only
showed damage that was consistent
With the clinical signs the horses
were exhibiting before death. This
included some lesions in the trachea
and larynx which can be explained by
the respiratory problems the horses
were having prior to death.
State officials say all the evidence
they have indicates this is not a con-
tagious disease. They have returned
to the stables in Wellington that
housed these animals and the polo
facilities and say there are no addi-


low. A formal presentation was made
at the Pinellas County Commission
meeting on Tuesday, April 20.
The awards are:

champion


trees

PINELLAS COUNTY Florida
Agriculture and Consumer Serv-
ices Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson is asking the public for
help in identifying "Champion
Trees" the largest known' eam-
ples of individual species in Florida.
For decades the Division of'
Forestry has participated in certi-
fying champion, tree records and
maintains a list of more than 300
trees. But with National Arbor Day
(the last Friday in April) a day set
aside each year to promote the
benefit of trees just around the
* corner, the division needs help in
identifying champion trees.
"Champions are all around us
just waiting to be discovered, even
in people's yards and neighbor-
hoods," Bronson said.
Procedures used by the Florida
Division of Forestry for measuring
and scoring champion trees are the
same standards used by American
Forests, whose procedures can be
viewed on thatorganization's web-
site at www.americanforests.org.
Some of the largest concentra-
tions of champion treesin Florida
occur on public lands managed by
various state and federal agencies,
-including Wakulla Springs State
Park n'ar Tallahassee and the var-
ious Natio'al Wildlife Refuges in
the Florida Reys. A new national
champion pyramid magnolia was
just discovered this month on Lake
Talquin State Forest near Quincy.
The Division of Forestry's web-
site, www.fl-dof.com; will, soon
have a champion tree page .where
the public can find Florida's largest
specimen of any tree species. Res-
idents' can contact their local
county forester for more informa-
tion about the program or to nom-
inate a tree as a Champion Tree.
'"They reduce storm water
runoff and soil erosion, provide
habitat for wildlife, reduce heating
and cooling costs, produce more
than 5,000 products that Florida
residents use in their daily lives
and make communities more de-
sirable places in which to live,"
Bronson said.

Retrofit for water conservation NORTH CAROLINA
MOUNTAIN LAKE COTTAGE


PINELLAS COUNTY- April is Water Con-
servation Month and a great time to improve
your home without incurring the high cost of
reniodeling.
Each week the Southwest Florida Water
Management District is providing a few simple
water conservation tips that the average resi-
dent can use. This week the focus is on check-
ing for leaks and retrofitting your fixtures.
Leak Detection
A dripping sink faucet can waste up to 30
gallons of water per day and a leaky toilet can
waste up to 100 gallons of water per day.
Dripping sink faucets can be repaired by re-
placing the seat, packing or bonnet washers or
tightening the fixture. A variety of repair kits
can be found in local home improvement and
hardware stores. Most kits contain detailed in-
structions and a listing of necessary tools, or a
plumber can make the repairs.
Most leaks that occur inside the home are
caused by leaky flapper valves in toilets. Toilet
leaks can be detected by adding leak detector
tablets or a few drops of food coloring to the toi-
let tank. If the tank is leaking, color will appear
in the bowl within 10-15 minutes. Flush the toi-
let after testing. Visit www.toiletflapper.org for
help in selecting the proper flapper for your toi-
let. If the leak is not caused by the flapper, you
will need a large adjustable wrench and a


TALLAHASSEE-Chief Financial Officer
Alex Sink announced the arrests of three in-
dividuals who allegedly solicited auto body
work from elderly victims in parking lots to
obtain personal information, then assumed the
victims' identities and filed fraudulent insur-
ance claims totaling approximately $50,000..
The arrests underscore the need for better fi-
nancial protection for Florida's seniors, which
is the top priority of CFO Sink's "Safeguard
our Seniors" initiative.
Upon receiving information from the Na-
tionwide Insurance Company and the National
Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB), an investi-
gation by the Department of Financial'Serv-
ices' Division of Insurance Fraud (DIF) re-
vealed that approximately 26 fraudulent car
crashes involving.the suspects were docu-
mented in Palm Beach County. Corey Blue
Petro, 22, Rickie S. Petro, 42, and Eda Siganoff,
43, have been charged with racketeering,
grand theft, fraudulent use of personal identi-
fication information and insurance fraud. If
convicted, the suspects could face up to 75
years behind bars ..
"From annuity fraud to cases like this one,
each year my department investigates hun-
dreds of bad actors who prey on seniors to take
advantage of them financially," said CFO Sink.
"Better financial protections for Florida's sen-
iors and tougher consequences for those who


screwdriver to fix the leak yourself, or call a
plumber.
If you think you may have a leak and are not
sure where it is, use your water meter to de-
termine if there is a leak. Turn off all faucets
and water-using appliances. Remember to wait
for the hot water heater and ice cube makers to
refill, and for regeneration of water softeners.
Check your water meter and record the current
reading. Wait 30 minutes, making sure no one
uses water during the testing period, then read
the meter again. If the reading has changed,
you have a leak.
If you have a well, listen for the pump to kick
on and off while the water is not in use.
If it turns on, you have a leak.
If you cannot find the leak using these tips,
you should consult a plumber.
In addition to checking for leaks, installing
low-flow faucets, toilets and other water-saving
devices in your kitchen and bathroom is an-
other way to conserve water and save money.
Low-flow toilets and showerheads
An older toilet model can use three gallons
or more per flush, while a new low-flow model
uses just 1.6 gallons per flush or less.
An older showerhead can use as much as
eight gallons per minute, while a new low-flow
model uses just 2.5 gallons per minute or less.
,You can cut your use by up to 50 percent when


defraud our seniors demand our immediate
attention.and is a priority for me."
During the last 12 months, CFO Sink's de-
partment has opened nearly 500 administra-
tive cases on financial fraud committed against
seniors. She created the Safeguard our Seniors
Task Force www.FLSeniors.net to develop
solutions to better protect FlOrida seniors from
falling victim to financial fraud.
The Department of Financial Services' Di,
vision of Insurance Fraud, a, sworn law en-
forcement agency, made over 800 insurance
fraud-related arrests in the last fiscal year. In-
surance fraud in Florida has been estimated to
cost the average Florida family as much as
$1,400 a year.
The Department of Insurance Fraud inves-
tigates various forms of fraud in insurance,
including health, life, auto, property and work-
ers' compensation insurance. Depending on
the estimated loss amount, the department
will pay up to $25,000 for information directly
leading to an arrest and conviction. Anyone
with information about this or any other sus-
pected insurance fraud is asked to call the de-
partment's Fraud Fighters Hotline at 1-800-
378-0445 or log on to
www.MyFloridaCFO.com/fraud. Complaints
can be tracked online.


you install a low-flow showerhead. Pressure
on low-flow showerheads has been adjusted to
deliver showers that are comparable to higher
flow showerheads.
Instant hot water devices
There are a variety of instant hot water re-
circulating devices and tankless water heaters
that will give you hot water the moment you
turn on the faucet. These devices conserve
water because you don't have to run the water
while it warms up.
SInstant hot water recirculating devices can
cost between $189 to $250 and are usually in-
stalled under the sink of the faucet furthest
from the hot water heater. No additional plumb-
ing is required.
Tankless water heaters
Tankless water heaters can cost between
$500 and $1,300. Tankless water heaters con-
serve resources because they heat water on de-
mand. Compared to traditional tank water
heaters, tankless water heaters produce an
endless supply of hot water at up to 40 percent
energy savings and reduce the risk of flooding.

FWC: New


boating


regulation

TALLAHASSEE Boating is practically
synonymous with Florida. Boat-rental busi-
nesses keep very busy providing boats to in-
dividuals who would like to enjoy the Sun-
shine State out on the water. However, there
is more to operating a boat than just filling
out a rental form.
Beginning this week, boat-rental busi-
nesses must display boating safety informa-
tion at their place of business for their pa-
trons to see. The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC) is assisting
businesses with this law by providing free
signs with the required boating information.
The FWC's Division of Law Enforcement,
held public meetings and invited a host of
rental-business owners to attend. The atten-
dees helped FWC staff determine what top-
ics are most important and how that infor-
mation might best be displayed to the renting
public. Business owners worked with FWC
staff to create separate informational signs for
paddled boats, motorboats, sailboats, per-
sonal watercraft and houseboats. The FWC'
subsequently passed regulations that require
rental companies -to prominently display
these signs to the renting public.
The intent is to make sure people who
rent boats in Florida have an excellent op-
portunity to be exposed to information on a
few of the most essential boating safety top-
ics prior to renting.
