Progress

Energy

bills will

increase

PSC approves 41 cent
interim rate hikes for
Progress Energy Florida

TALLAHASSEE Florida's
Public Service Commission (PSC)
today approved interim rates for
Progress Energy Florida, Inc.
(PEF), which will increase the av-
erage 1,000 kWh residential bill by
41 cents. The interim rate in-
crease will take effect in July 2009.
An interim rate increase can be
requested by utilities that have pe-
titioned the PSC for a permanent
base rate increase. The interim
rates are in effect during the base
rate proceeding, a lengthy process
that involves discovery, research,
and testimony from customers, the
company, and intervenors. PEF's
petition for a rate increase was filed
with the Commission in March.
"Interim rates will be credited
back to customers, with interest, if
the Commission determines the
rates were not fully justified," said
PSC Chairman Matthew M. Carter
II. "The Commission conducts a
comprehensive investigation to
make sure both the requested in-
terim and permanent base rate in-
creases are warranted and appro-
priate."
The Commission also approved
cost recovery for an upgrade to
switch four generating units from
oil to natural gas at PEF's Bartow
facility. Costs for the repowering
project will be examined as part of
PEF's base rate increase request.
The project will increase an aver-
age 1,000 kWh residential bill by
$4.11, which is subject to refund
with interest. The recovery
charges will take effect in July
2009.
PEF serves more than 1.6 mil-
lion customers across 20,000
square miles in 35 Florida coun-
ties.
The PSC exercises regulatory
authority over utilities in the areas
of rate base/economic regulation;
competitive market oversight; and
monitoring of safety, reliability, and
service.

Health center curves teen obesity


ST. PETERSBURG During a
time of shrinking budgets, Mayor
Rick Baker recognized a local health
club company for giving back and
fighting teen obesity.
Lifestyle Family Fitness is giv-
ing out free summer health club
memberships to teens in an effort to
battle childhood obesity.
"This demonstration of corporate
responsibility strengthens our com-
munity," Mayor Baker said. "It is
truly a great representation of our
city that a company headquartered
in St. Pete cares and wants to help
thousands of teens nationwide."


In an effort to battle childhood
obesity, Lifestyle Family Fitness be-
gan allowing teens free summer
memberships three years ago. The
membership comes during summer
months when teens may not other-
wise have access to physical educa-
tion.
"I am thankful to be able to do
something significant for teens who
may be facing the same self-esteem
issues I once faced as a result of be-
ing overweight," Lifestyle Family
Fitness founder Geoff Dyer said.
According to the Center for Dis-
ease Control, the prevalence of obe-


sity among children ages 12 to 19
more than tripled in the past 20
years.
"As responsible citizens, we are
compelled to do our part to help im-
prove the health of the next gener-
ation," Kevin Laferriere said.
Annually, Lifestyle Family Fit-
ness opens all 55 of its locations na-
tionwide to teens between the ages
of 12 and 17. Parents can register
their teen for the free summer pro-
gram by visiting www.lff.com/teen.
Teens are allowed to visit any
Lifestyle club unaccompanied after
the registration process is complete.

Rain


brings


needed


relief

ST. PETERSBURG The
Southwest Florida Water Manage-
ment District is reminding residents
that they do not need to water their
lawns because of the recent rain.
Your lawn only needs one-half to
three-quarters of an inch of water.
Most of the District received
several inches of rain within the last
week and more rain is forecasted
for this week, so residents can skip
their irrigation day.
Outdoor water use can account
for up to fifty percent of residential
water use. Skipping a week of irri-
gation will help conserve drinking
water supplies.
"The recent rains are a wel-
comed relief to our parched region,
but we have a long way to go to
catch up," said Granville Kinsmen,
the District's Hydrologic Data man-
ager. "We still have a 30-inch rainfall
deficit for the past three years. The
up side of the rain is that it should
eliminate the need for any lawn wa-
tering for the next week or so in
most areas."
Kinsmen also says that area lakes
are more than three feet below
where they should be at this time of
year, and it will take above-normal
rainfall this summer, winter, and
spring, and probably into next sum-

Beach police to enforce seat belt laws


ST. PETERSBURG The St.
Pete Beach Police Department will
join with hundreds of other law en-
forcement agencies across the coun-
try in renewing a pledge to save lives
by intensifying efforts to enforce seat
belt laws among all motorists and
around the clock during the 2009
Click It or Ticket mobilization, which
runs from May 18 31.
In 2006, according to the National
Highway Traffic Safety Administra-
tion, 15,046 passenger vehicle occu-
pants were killed between the night-
time hours of 6 p.m. and 5:59 a.m.


Nearly two-thirds (64%) of those
killed at night were not wearing seat
belts compared to less than half (46%)
of the passenger vehicle occupants
killed during daytime hours.
Along with nighttime motorists,
men are among those less likely to
buckle up. In 2006, 73 percent of male
passenger vehicle occupants between
the ages of 18 and 34 who were killed
in crashes were not wearing seat
belts.
All young people are at greatly in-
creased risk. Sixty-four percent of
teenage passenger vehicle occupants


killed in fatal crashes during 2006
were not wearing seat belts at the
time of the crashes. In 2006 the seat
belt usage rate of those 16 to 24 was
lower than any other age group.
"With 18 percent of all Americans
failing to buckle up regularly, it's clear
that far too many people still don't
take belt laws seriously," Deputy Chief
Dean Horianopoulos said. Among
some groups, especially young men,
the unbuckled rate is especially high
and the fatal crash rate increases sig-
nificantly at night.
Increased law enforcement activi-


ties, including seat belt checkpoints,
will be conducted nationwide during
the 2009 Click It or Ticket mobiliza-
tion. "Regular seat belt use is the sin-
gle most effective way to protect peo-
ple and reduce motor vehicle crash
fatalities. And high-visibility enforce-
ment is effective at getting people to
buckle up," said Deputy Chief Dean
Horianopoulos. "I urge everyone in
the City of St. Pete Beach to please be
safe and buckle up day and night Click
It or Ticket."
With the recent passage of legisla-
tion giving law enforcement officer


the authority to stop motorists for not
wearing a safety belt, FDOT esti-
mates that approximately 153 lives,
more than 2,100 serious injuries and
509 million in health care and other
related costs will be saved annually.
The law goes into effect on June 30,
2009.
FDOT's goal for the 2009 Click it
or Ticket campaign is to raise the
statewide percentage of safety belt
usage to 85 percent. In 2008, Florida
ranked 31st in the nation in percent-
age of safety belt usage (81.7 percent).

Intermediate School in St. Peters-
burg on Wednesday, May 20, 2009 as

exciting promotional opportunities to

PINELLAS COUNTY During
the Memorial Day holiday weekend,
the Florida Fish and Wildlife Con-
servation Commission (FWC) re-
minds beachgoers statewide to be
mindful of nesting birds. The eggs
and chicks of nesting birds are deli-
cate and susceptible to harm from
disturbances that cause adults to fly
off the nests.
"Just approaching a bird is enough
to flush it away from its nest," said
Ricardo Zambrano, an FWC biolo-
gist. "When birds fly off their eggs, it
exposes the chicks to predators."
Injuries to unprotected eggs or
chicks can happen quickly, either
from predators or even from the in-
tense heat of direct sunlight.
Sun worshipers can help protect
the birds by moving parties, picnics
or fireworks away from nesting ar-
eas.
This time of year, a variety of pro-
tected birds nest on Florida's
beaches, including terns, black skim-
mers, snowy plovers and Wilson's
plovers.
The FWC and other agencies
posted signs earlier this year around
many nesting areas on Florida's
beaches. These closed areas protect
nesting birds from unnecessary dis-
turbances and prevent humans from
stepping on their nests. All of these
species nest in the open and lay well-
camouflaged eggs directly on the
sand, making them nearly invisible to
predators and to the untrained hu-
man eye.
"We need the public's help in pro-
tecting these spectacular birds while
enjoying the beach," Zambrano said.
"Beach-nesting birds are part of
Florida's unique natural heritage."
For more information on nesting
shorebirds, go to MyFWC.com/CON-
SERVATION/ConservationYou Liv-
ing_w_Wildlife_shorebirds.htm.

Ordinace requires
registration of
alarm systems

PINELLAS COUNTY -Starting
July 1, 2009, the Pinellas County
Sheriff's office will begin enforcing
the false alarm ordinance approved
by the Pinellas Board of County
Commissioners earlier this year.
The ordinance covers the unin-
corporated area of Pinellas County
and the 12 cities currently under
contract with the Sheriffs Office for
law enforcement services. See the
list above.
Under the ordinance, home and
business owners "shall" register their
alarm systems with the Sheriff's Of-
fice. The new "SHARP" or Sheriffs
Alarm
Registration Program was created
to manage this initiative. There is no
fee to register a home or business
alarm system.
Alarm subscribers can register
online on the Pinellas County Sher-
iff's website, www.pcsoweb.com,
click on the "SHARP" icon. Regis-
tration forms have also been distrib-
uted to the Sheriff's Administration


Building on Ulmerton Rd., the Sher-
iff's North District Station in
Dunedin, the city halls of the 12
listed contract cities, and the Pinellas
County Courthouse in downtown
Clearwater.
Alarm subscribers registered with
SHARP receive two free passes if
they experience two false alarms
during the year. After the two free
passes, they are subject to a fine
schedule ranging from $75 per false
alarm up to $500 per false alarm.
Subscribers who do not register
with SHARP do not receive any free
passes for false alarms and are sub-
ject to a much steeper fine sched-
ule, ranging from $175 per alarm up
to $600 per alarm.
Home and business owners who
experience false alarms between
now and the July 1, 2009 enforce-
ment date will receive registration
notices from responding deputy
sheriffs.
According to Sheriff Jim Coats,
the purpose of the false alarm ordi-
nance is to reduce the number of
false alarms in the Sheriff's jurisdic-
tion. "Well over 90% of the alarms we
investigate are false alarms", he says.


Morning fire may
have been started
by 8 year-old

CLEARWATER Clearwater
Fire Investigators and the State Fire
Marshal's Office have completed
their investigation into an early
morning structure fire at 1601 Bar-
bara Avenue in Clearwater.
The fire was determined to be ar-
son. Fire Investigators say an 8-year-
old boy set clothes on fire in a bed-
room of the home. The boy will be
referred to a juvenile firesetter pro-
gram.
One room of the house sustained
fire damage and there was smoke
damage through the remainder of the
home.
Damage is estimated at $30,000
and the home cannot be occupied in
its present condition.

Resuce

workers

receive

honor

CLEARWATER- In honor of
Emergency Medical Services
Week May 17 to 23, Pinellas
County Public Safety Services De-
partment named two Sunstar crew
members the 2009 recipient of
Pinellas County's Paramedic and
EMT of the year awards.
Paramedic Josh Schuster re-
ceived Paramedic of the Year while
his partner, Michelle Molendyk,
was honored with EMT of the Year.
Both Schuster and Molendyk
were instrumental in rescuing a
woman from a mobile home fire
last November.
As they began their shift on
Nov. 26, 2008, the crew noticed a
column of smoke rising from the
Indian Rocks Estates Mobile
Home Park. Arriving on scene be-
fore firefighters, they saw one of
the mobile homes engulfed in
flames. Neighbors were shouting
that someone was inside.
Through an open door,
Molendyk caught a glimpse of a
foot. She entered the burning
structure and pulled the victim to
safety. Then, both she and her part-
ner administered aid.
"There wasn't really any time to
have a discussion," Molendyk said
in recalling the incident. "That mo-
bile was on fire and when I saw
her foot there, I said to myself, 'Oh,
God, I've got to try.'"
Both Shuster and Molendyk ac-
cepted their awards at the Board of
County Commissioners meeting in
Clearwater on Tuesday, May 19.


TALLAHASSEE In an effort
to improve water quality and create
jobs, the U.S. Environmental Protec-
tion Agency (EPA) has awarded
$1,336,300 to the Florida Depart-
ment of Environmental Protection
under the American Recovery and
Reinvestment Act of 2009.
A total of $39 million will be
awarded nationally to states for Water
Quality Management Planning
(WQMP) grants, which will keep and
create jobs to help prevent water pol-
lution and protect human health and
the environment.
"The Recovery Act investments
are meeting urgent needs for eco-
nomic growth and protecting human
health and the environment," EPA


Administrator Lisa P. Jackson said.
"Communities across the nation can
count on green jobs to help pull them
out of this downturn and ensure the
long-term strength of our economy
and our environment."
WQMP grants support a broad
range of activities, such as setting
standards, monitoring the quality of
the water, developing plans to restore
polluted waters, and identifying ways
to protect healthy waters from be-
coming polluted.
States are encouraged to use
these funds for more innovative plan-
ning activities, like developing plans
to adapt to climate change, analyzing
trends in water availability and use,
and creating low-impact development


programs. Grants are awarded to
state agencies, where the funds can
be distributed to regional planning
organizations.
"With this Recovery Act funding,
Florida will pursue additional water
quality planning activities that will
lead to increased economic activity
and new water quality protection ef-
forts in the state," said Stan Meiburg,
EPA Acting Regional Administrator
in Atlanta. "This funding will benefit
Florida residents by promoting im-
proved water quality while strength-
ening the economy through green
jobs."

mentation of the ARR Act of 2009,

New


endowed


professor


named

St. Petersburg, Fla.) May 19,
2009 College of Business Ac-
counting Professor James Fellows,
PhD, has been named the Bank of
America Endowed Professor in
Business for the 2009-2010 aca-
demic year.
Named by the Florida Institute
of CPAs as the 2005 Florida Edu-
cator of the Year, Fellows' commit-
ment to community affairs has en-
hanced the academic experiences
of his students. Through this en-
dowment, Fellows will continue to
build professional and service op-
portunities for students with the
IRS Volunteer Income Tax Assis-
tance Program, a nationwide tax
preparation service for low and
moderate income taxpayers. Fel-
lows recruited 15 students during
the most recent tax season, who
either volunteered or worked as
interns for VITA. They processed
some of the 3,700 tax returns
processed in Pinellas County, help-
ing low and moderate income fam-
ilies receive valuable tax credits.
"Not only do the students gain
practical experience in tax prepa-
ration and working with clients,
they also gain a sense of commu-
nity and the reward that comes
from helping others," Fellows said.
"The taxpayers who receive VITA
services are often unaware of the
tax credits they are allowed."
Fellows works with the Wealth
Building Coalition of Pinellas
County, a public-private partner-
ship that includes Bank of America
as a primary partner and coordi-
nates the Pinellas VITA program
with the IRS. Fellows is seeking to
build student interest and partici-
pation in the program and add more
VITA sites for the 2010 filing sea-
son. For the 2009 filing season,
there were 12 sites in Pinellas
County from Tarpon Springs to St.
Petersburg.
Fellows joined USF St. Peters-
burg in 1992 after 10 years at USF
Fort Myers, now Florida Gulf
Coast University. He is a member
of the Florida Institute of Certified
Public Accountants. His teaching
specialty is taxation with a second-
ary focus on business economics
and cost accounting.
The Bank of America Endowed
Professorship in Business was cre-
ated in 1990 to recognize USF St.
Petersburg faculty doing outstand-
ing work in the community,
through support from the Bank of
America Charitable Foundation and
the State of Florida Matching Grant
Program. USF St. Petersburg is
dedicated to enhancing the cur-
riculum through the Citizen
Scholar model and providing stu-
dents with unique educational op-
portunities through coursework
that includes community involve-
ment. Fellows' appointment recog-
nizes his dedication to instruction
through community engagement,
and the commitment that Bank of
America has to benefit its local
communities.

mer to bring them closer to normal
levels.
All 16 counties within the Dis-
trict are under one-day-per-week
lawn watering restrictions through
June 30, 2009.
In addition, residents in Hills-
borough, Pasco and Pinellas coun-


ties are under tightened restrictions
that only allow them to irrigate be-
tween midnight and 4 a.m. on their
watering day.
For more water conservation
tips, information about the drought

Seagrass growth increasing NORTH CAROLINA
S MOUNTAIN LAKE COTTAGE


PINELLAS COUNTY Scien-
tists with the Southwest Florida Wa-
ter Management District's Surface
Water Improvement and Manage-
ment (SWIM) Program continue to
see an increase in seagrass growth in
Tampa Bay, St. Joseph Sound and
Clearwater Harbor but caution that
the results may be due to the
drought.
According to the District's 2008
seagrass mapping study, seagrass
acreage in Tampa Bay has increased
nearly 1,300 acres since 2006. Dis-
trict studies show that since 2004
Tampa Bay continues to regain sea-
grass at an annual rate of two to three
percent and now supports more sea-
grass than at any time measured
since the 1950s. Tampa Bay currently
has about 29,647 acres of seagrass.


According to the 2008 seagrass
mapping study, the St. Joseph
Sound/Clearwater Harbor has
recorded a 16 percent change in sea-
grass.
Seagrass is an important marine
habitat and a valuable tool for scien-
tists throughout the state of Florida.
Seagrass generally grows in waters
less than six feet deep, but can be
found in waters around Egmont Key
at 15 feet deep. Seagrass is an im-
portant barometer of a bay's health
because it requires relatively clean
water to flourish and serves as "the
nurseries of the bay," sheltering and
supporting a variety of juvenile fish
and other marine creatures.
Kris Kaufman, a District environ-
mental scientist, cautions that the
improvements may be due, in part, to


the ongoing drought, since less rain
means less stormwater runoff flow-
ing into the bay. Additionally, the lack
of rain made the water clear and pro-
vided excellent conditions when the
aerial photos for the study were
taken. This allowed for better views
of the seagrass in deeper waters that
are often hard to see clearly.
"Results of our seagrass mapping
project indicate SWIM and other
stormwater improvement projects
lead to healthier water bodies," said
Jennette Seachrist, SWIM Program
manager. "Our goal is to continue to
reduce nutrient loading and improve
water quality."

GAINESVILLE, Fla. Univer-
sity of Florida horticultural sciences
researcher Paul Lyrene struggled as
he worked to keep a grasp on five
plaques given to him to mark five
plant patents for blueberry cultivars
he created.
"I think I won the most pounds of
awards," he joked as the second an-
nual UF/IFAS Florida Agricultural
Experiment Station awards ceremony
ended Tuesday evening at the Harn
Museum of Art.
Lyrene, one of more than 65 re-
searchers honored, said he believes
the ceremony helps scientists learn
what their peers across campus-and
often, the state-are up to.
Mark McLellan, IFAS research
dean and FAES director, thanked the
researchers for their dedication and
hard work.
"It is time to salute some excep-
tional researchers for their passion
... for their search and discovery of
new ideas, and their intensity to cre-
ate solutions-solutions for our lives,"
he said during the ceremony.
UF President Bernie Machen also
addressed the scientists, noting that
it was a refreshing change to focus on
research accomplishments rather
than tight budgets.
"The times we're facing are in-
deed challenging, and sometimes we
can get lost in the morass," he said.
"This last hour helps bring us right
back to why we're here ... solving
the problems of our world."
Among those noted for their ac-
complishments were more than 35
IFAS Research Innovation Award
winners, two Award of Excellence for
Graduate Research winners, six UF


Research Foundation Professors, two
Richard L. Jones New Faculty Re-
search Award winners, eight re-
searchers whose work drew more

Astronaut John Grunsfeld, positioned on a foot restraint on the end of Atlantis' remote
manipulator system, participated in the mission's fifth and final spacewalk as work
continued to refurbish and upgrade the Hubble Space Telescope. During the seven-hour
spacewalk, Grunsfeld and astronaut Andrew Feustel (out of frame) installed a battery
group replacement, removed and replaced a fine guidance sensor and three thermal
blankets that protect Hubble's electronics.
