Researchers Plan to FIRST FAEOFF
Responge the Bay


BY TOM NORDIE
UF NEWS BUREAU
GAINESVILLE Marine
sponges may not look like apart-
ment buildings, but to shrimps,
juvenile lobsters and other ani-
mals in Florida Bay, the puffy fil-
ter-feeders provide one of the few
safe places to live.
In 2007, harmful algae blooms
killed sponges in large tracts of
the shallow lagoon, where fresh
water draining from the Ever-
glades meets the Gulf of Mexico.
University of Florida and Old Do-
minion University researchers are
trying to restore the inverte-
brates by slicing up healthy
sponges, then planting the cut-
tings in affected areas to grow and
reproduce.
The results of the study will
lay the groundwork for larger
restoration efforts that would
boost populations of economically
important seafood species that de-
pend on sponges, help the state's
commercial sponge industry and
improve water quality, said Don
Behringer, a research assistant
professor with UF's Institute of
Food and Agricultural Sciences.
"Sponges don't get as much at-
tention as other, more charismatic
marine species," said Behringer,
co-leader of the project. "But in
hard-bottom habitats they domi-
nate the biomass and are impor-
tant to ecosystem health."
In Florida Bay, the seabed is a
mixture of hard-bottom areas, sea
grass meadows and almost fea-


tureless sand and mud areas.
Within the hard-bottom, marine
sponges, some of them several
feet in diameter, are the dominant
source of structure and shelter,
he said. In parts of the bay the
animals were so abundant prior
to the algae blooms that they
were estimated to filter all sur-
rounding water every three days,
straining out bacteria they con-
sume as food.
The 2007 algae blooms affected
about 200 square miles of the
1,100-square-mile bay, wiping out
nearly every sponge in some ar-
eas. Similar blooms may have oc-
curred for at least a century, but
hard evidence is lacking,
Behringer said.
Armed with $157,000 in grants
from The Nature Conservancy -
National Oceanic and Atmos-
pheric Administration Commu-
nity-Based Restoration Program,
and Everglades National Park, the
researchers will try to reintro-
duce sponges in the Everglades
National Park and the Florida
Keys National Marine Sanctuary
areas of Florida Bay.
In this feasibility study, four
species will be used: loggerhead
and vase sponges, large species
that provide habitat for sea ani-
mals; and glove and yellow
sponges, important to Florida's
commercial sponge fishing indus-
try, said Mark Butler, a professor
with ODU's biological sciences

FWC Commissioner Kenneth Wright speaks about Burmese pythons
and other reptiles of concern in Florida. Also participating in the news
conference were (L-R) state representatives Darren Soto and Ralph
Poppell, herpetologist Shawn Heflick and State Sen. Lee Constantine.
Kenneth Wright, a Florida Fish and Wildlife Conserva-
tion Commission (FWC) commissioner, hosted a news
conference with several state legislators on Tuesday to
heighten awareness of the exotic reptile situation in
Florida.
"We are working with our legislators who are con-
cerned about the threat of Burmese pythons and other
reptiles of concern and their ability to threaten our native
species," said Wright. "The interest of Sen. Lee Constan-
tine (R-Altamonte Springs), Rep. Darren Soto (D-Or-
lando) and Rep. Ralph Poppell (R-Titusville) in this prob-
lem will help the FWC and its partners do their job
effectively."


BY CAITLIN CRAFT
PINELLAS NEWS
The St. Petersburg mayoral race is underway and
took off in a big way this past week when Kathleen Ford
and Bill Foster took part in their first debate. A week ago,
St. Petersburg held primary elections to dwindle down
ten candidates to two for the final elections taking place
in November.
St. Petersburg College Student Government Associ-
ation as well as Rep. Rick Kriseman sponsored the
Tuesday night debate at the Gribbs SPC campus at 6:30
p.m. Kriseman and the student government moderated
the debate, in which the candidates were allowed to ad-
dress each other with questions and issues.
Foster was the first to speak. He talked about build-
ing the new city library at the SPC campus. He believes
the location to be more accessible to the community.
Ford attacked the city's reliability, saying that the
town has to sue to be heard and the town deserves all the
services that others get. Ford attacks the rezoning of
Catholic Diocese property.
One major disagreement the two had was the bene-
fits for domestic partnership. Foster was asked if he
could provide if for heterosexual and homosexual cou-
ples, he said he didn't see it necessary, but would con-
sider it if required. Ford gave support to all couples.
Ford was later asked where she had been and why she
chose to speak out now after being beaten by Rick Baker
in the past and originally supporting Bill Foster. Her re-
sponse was that she was working for the good of the city,
behind the scenes.
Foster fought back saying that she was nowhere
when he needed help with the city in 2008. Ford fights
back asking Foster about the Rays stadium. Foster said
that anything approved by the voters would be done.
Foster continued by asking Ford what difference she
has made recently. After stalling, Ford threw the ques-
tion back at Foster, who proudly explained his plans to
save the Sunken Gardens and provide tasers for the po-
lice department.
Overall it seemed the Foster made clear his plans,
while Ford spent most of the night defending past
choices and making excuses. For instance, when Foster
asked that if securities lending was such a gamble, then
why did Ford vote to include that as part of the city's in-
vestment strategy in 1997. Ford said that the votes
were misconstrued.
One way to bring money into the city rather than use
the city's money is to enhance the commercial tourism.
Ford wants to better online marketing; Foster wants to
make the city appeal globally.
In a word Foster chose paradise, while Ford went with
marvelous to describe the city. A general poll of the au-
dience has Foster winning by a landslide at 71%.


Wright encouraged residents who have an interest in
this issue to attend the FWC's public meeting in Howey-
in-the-Hills on Wednesday, when FWC staff will present
information on options for dealing with these nonnative
species.
Wright invited several state lawmakers who have ex-
pressed interest in legislation on the issue to participate
in Tuesday's news conference. Constantine is chairman of
the Senate Environmental Preservation and Conservation
Committee and has been working with FWC staff in draft-
ing legislation that requires anyone selling wildlife in
Florida to be licensed, even if they're from another state.
In addition, his proposed legislation restricts ownership,
sales, importation and release of Burmese pythons and
other exotic species unless authorized by the FWC, and
provides for increased criminal and civil penalties for vi-
olators.
Poppell was the sponsor of 2007 legislation that re-
quires a $100 annual license for anyone possessing rep-
tiles of concern. He continues to work with the Com-
mission on these issues.
"The FWC can pass rules to regulate the sale and trade
of reptiles of concern, but we depend on the Legislature
to increase penalties, fines and fees to help enforce the
rules approved by the Commission," Wright said.
Burmese pythons, a nonnative species, have spread
throughout South Florida, creating a threat to the envi-
ronment. Pythons and other reptiles of concern kept as
pets also pose a threat to humans, if not handled properly.
The release of Burmese pythons by pet owners who no
longer want the reptiles has caused further threats to
Florida's native wildlife. Burmese pythons have been liv-

ing and reproducing in the Everglades and other parts of
South Florida for more than a decade. The FWC has in-
stituted several programs for the capture of pythons in the
wild to help stop the northward spread of this invasive
species. The agency continues to work on solutions to
prevent further im-
pacts on Florida's na-
tive fish and wildlife.
In addition, the FWC
began hosting Pet
Amnesty Days in 2006.
During these events,
folks who can no longer
keep nonnatives as pets
may turn them in to the
FWC for placement. The
next event will be forrep-
tiles of concern only at -
Gatorland in Orlando on
Oct. 3.
The Commission
meeting will be at the
Mission Inn in Howey-
in-the-Hills, today begin-
ning at 8:30 a.m. each
day. The presentation on
Burmese pythons and
other reptiles of concern

MOSI's new exhibit

presents Aspirin

and Tylenol crystals

TAMPA Now through October 3, the Museum
of Science & Industry (MOSI) is hosting more than
sixty images of microscopic crystals of Aspirin and
Tylenol doped with coffees, teas, wines, beers
and spirits, over the counter pharmaceuticals, and
tropical fruit extracts. The exhibition is called "Art
in Science -- Science in Art," and was created by ac-
claimed "Art Microscopist" T. H. Saunders.
The art pieces are large canvas prints of tiny
crystal formations captured using high definition
photography and precision optics microscopes.
Saunders modifies the crystal growth to develop
spectacular patterns.
The actual crystals are no larger than the point of
a pin and are recorded using cross-polarization light-
ing techniques. These techniques cause the natural
crystals to radiate dazzling colors Saunders does
not use any form of computer alteration. These
spectacular prints, thousands of times larger than
the original crystal, are so abstract that they in-
voke your imagination to see fanciful visions.
Saunders collections include the "Art of Science,"
"Art of Medicine," "Art of Coffee & Tea," "Under
the Influence," "Tropical Fruits," "The Vicarious
Bootleggers Collection," (actual images of wines
from an alleged "Al Capone era" bootlegger) and
"The Eyes Have It Collection" (ophthalmology
medications).
Saunders divides his time between Florida and
Nova Scotia, where he works as a global business
development advisor, principal of an international
technology search and commercialization group and
Chairman and CEO of technology companies. He
also serves on boards of corporate and non-profit
entities, and has served in Executive, Corporate,
U.S. Congressional, Government Executive Branch
and White House appointments.
The artist utilizes his imagery in the promotion
of fund-raising events for universities, foundations,
civic organizations and worthy causes.
"Art in Science Science in Art" is on display in
the MOSI Arc Gallery until October 3. Admission to
the Arc Gallery is included with MOSI admission.

Home for the Winter

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) has
received reports of bald eagles returning to nesting territories
throughout Florida the past few weeks.
This majestic bird that calls Florida home during its nesting sea-
son has been flying back to former nesting sites from Duval to Col-
lier counties, although no one reported nesting activity yet. The of-
ficial start of the nesting season is Oct. 1.
The FWC removed the bald eagle from the state's threatened
species list in 2008 and at the same time implemented a bald eagle
management plan with guidelines to help residents avoid causing a
disturbance to nesting bald eagles. People should follow the man-
agement plan whenever activities or projects are being conducted
within 660 feet of an eagle's nest when eagles are present. Bald ea-
gles are protected from disturbance by the Florida Administrative
Code, as well as two federal laws: the Migratory Bird Treaty Act and
the Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act.
"The bald eagle is a success story in the United States, particularly
in Florida," said Ulgonda Kirkpatrick, bald eagle management plan co-
ordinator. "We went from 88 active nests in 1973 to more than 1,100
nests in 2007; that's a twelvefold increase in Florida."
The FWC is committed to conserving the bald eagle. All known
nesting territories are surveyed by aircraft to monitor nesting activ-
ity and reproduction, according to Kirkpatrick.
In Florida, bald eagles may begin gathering materials for nests in
late September or early October. They begin laying eggs as early as
October and as late as April, with incubation lasting approximately 35
days. Once hatched, the fledglings begin flying from the nest at 11


CLEARWATER Miles for Hope, a non-
profit organization, dedicated to raising funds
to find a cure for brain cancer, has partnered
with AirTran Airways, Bright House, and
Northwest Biothereputics to bring a free
charity concert and cookout to Coachman
Park in Clearwater. All proceeds from this
event will be used to expand existing brain tu-
mor vaccine trials. Bob Gibbs, a five year sur-
vivor of brain cancer owes his life to the vac-
cine, and wants others to have access to the
same vaccine that has saved his life.
Northwest Biothereputics has been a
leader in the development and production of
cancer vaccines. In fact, they have and are us-
ing a vaccine for prostate cancer also. "We feel
so strongly that DCVax Brain has saved my
life, that Miles for Hope has committed to
get these trials opened to give others access
to the same experimental vaccine that saved
my life" Gibbs says.
Moving Towards a Cure '09 will be held at
Coachman Park in Clearwater, Florida on Sep-
tember 26, 2009. This year's performers will
include Mandy Brooke, Clearwater's own In-


vasion, and Amber Lynn Nicol. The concert
will start approximately 11:00 am and will
end around 5:30 pm. We will also be grilling
burgers and hot dogs. There will be plenty of
food available for purchase. We will also have
plenty of soda and water, and will have beer
for the adults for purchase. All proceeds will
benefit brain cancer research.
In addition, there will be several activities
for the kids including bounce houses and ob-
stacle courses. We will also have carnival-
type games, cotton candy and sno-cones. "Our
goal with this event is to give the community
a great family activity while raising aware-
ness and funding for brain cancer.", said
Gibbs. "With over 482 people diagnosed daily,
this number is comparable to those diagnosed
with breast cancer, but receives only a very
small portion of the funding that breast cancer
does".
As with last year's event, people can cycle,
run or walk to help us raise awareness and
funds for brain cancer. "Due to the effects of
the current economic conditions, most vac-
cine clinical trials have all stopped enrolling


new patients, and this is quite disturbing to us
since it's one of the only treatments showing
real promise in the fight against brain cancer"
says Gibbs. The FDA has not approved any
new treatments for brain cancer in over
twenty years. Brain cancer also remains to be
one of the most deadly forms of cancer with
one of the highest mortality rates.
Barb Gibbs, co-founder of Miles For Hope
says "Our goal with this event is to encourage
people to get out on their bikes, or put a pair
of sneakers on and come out and join us for a
fun family event. We also hope to raise aware-
ness of the critical need for funding brain can-
cer research and clinical trials, and of course
to raise the funds necessary to open enroll-
ment to even more patients in these trials".
More information on the event and activities
can be obtained by visiting www.miles-
forhope.org or by calling Miles for Hope at
(727) 647-6548.
"We are in this for the long haul," said
Robert Gibbs. "No donation is too small, be-
cause every dollar brings us closer to finding
a cure for this otherwise terminal disease."


FWC announces peregrine falcons can be used for sport


The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conserva-
tion Commission (FWC) moved one step
closer to allowing falconers to take peregrine
falcons for the sport of falconry.
At the meeting in Howey-in-the-Hills on
Wednesday, the Commission directed staff to
finalize the rule that authorizes the take of
peregrine falcons for falconry with a permit is-
sued by the FWC.
Seven speakers, including members of
groups such as the Florida Falconry Associa-
tion, North American Falconers Association,
Florida Audubon of Florida, Defenders of
Wildlife and Humane Society of the United
States, provided input to the Commission on
the draft rule. Those opposed to the falconry
rule requested that the Commission find a
way to fund a raptor-monitoring program that


includes peregrines in the Keys.
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service released
a plan for peregrine management for falconry
in December 2008. The plans allows for 36
peregrine falcons to be taken for falconry any-
where east of the 100th meridian. This area
includes states from Maine to Florida to Texas
to North Dakota. Florida is eligible for a small
portion of that number, which will be allo-
cated among the states that allow harvest.
"Falconers contributed to the successful
conservation of the peregrine by providing
birds for captive breeding so peregrines could
be reintroduced," said Robin Boughton, the
FWC's avian coordinator. "Many falconers
would now like the opportunity to again use
the birds in the sport of falconry."
The peregrine is a highly valued bird by fal-


corners for its 200-mph dives for prey. Falcons
have been used by people for hunting for
more than 1,000 years.
The USFWS took the peregrine off the en-
dangered species list in 1999, and the FWC
delisted the peregrine falcon in June, making
it one of conservation's greatest success sto-
ries. Today, scientists estimate there are at
least 3,100 breeding pairs in the United
States.
The FWC has met with stakeholders, in-
cluding falconers and conservation groups, as
the agency developed a management plan for
the peregrine, which was approved in June.
Staff has continued working with stakeholders
as it drafted the rule to allow harvest of the
peregrine for falconry.

Study Suggests Race Made No Difference in Gay Marriage Ban


BY CATHY KEEN
UF NEWS BUREAU
GAINESVILLE The level of voters' ed-
ucation not the large numbers of blacks
who turned out for the first time to cast bal-
lots for Barack Obama best explains the
passage of a Florida law banning gay mar-
riage, a new University of Florida study sug-
gests.
Many pundits claimed that newly regis-
tered black voters inspired by Obama's can-
didacy to flock to the polls resulted in states
narrowly approving amendments that opposed
legalizing gay unions, said Daniel Smith, a
UF political science professor and the study's
co-author.
However, Smith's study found that educa-
tion levels were about five times as important
as race in Florida counties' approval of
Amendment 2, which defined marriage as a
legal bond strictly between a man and a
woman in the state's constitution. Smith is
scheduled to present the findings to the
American Political Science Association in
Toronto on Thursday.
"Our research challenges the assumption
that the surge of black voters who turned out
in unusually large numbers in support of
Obama were also in favor of banning gay mar-
riage," Smith said. "We found that it really
wasn't race that led to an increased support
for a ban on gay marriage but whether or not
someone was educated."
Controlling for other socioeconomic and
political factors, for each additional 1 percent
of a county's population with a bachelor of
arts degree, there was nearly an equal 1 per-


cent decrease in support for Amendment 2,
Smith said. By comparison, every 1 percent
increase in a county's black population led to
only two-tenths of a percentage point increase
in support for Amendment 2, he said.
"Education is so important because it in-
creases exposure to those who are different,"
he said. "Studies show very clearly that the
more educated people are the more tolerant
they are of differences."
Because blacks tend to be conservative on
social issues and attend church in large num-
bers, blacks were expected to hurt prospects
for legalizing gay marriage, Smith said.
Dozens of post-election news stories and po-
litical blogs drew upon exit polls to blame the
surge of black voters for the passage of anti-
gay marriage measures in California and
Florida, he said.
According to CNN exit polls in Florida, 71
percent of black voters cast ballots for
Amendment 2, compared with 60 percent of
white voters, Smith said. Even among young
people between the ages of 18 and 29, who
tend to be more supportive of same-sex mar-
riage, 71 percent of blacks supported the
measure, compared with 49 percent of whites,
he said.
But respondents may feel pressured to give
socially acceptable answers in exit polls, and
the margin of error is high because of the
small sample of blacks, Smith said.
"Our analysis -.i.icIls that these public
opinion polls may have overstated the extent
to which black and white voters differed on
the issue of same-sex marriage," he said. "We
found that party identification, education and


religiosity were much stronger predictors of
a respondent's attitude toward gay marriage
than race was."
Gay rights groups have questioned
whether the black community is worth en-
gaging in their efforts to win approval for
same-sex marriages, Smith said. States that
have passed these measures, including Iowa,
New Hampshire and Maine, are largely white,
he said.
"A very vibrant debate is going on in the
gay and lesbian community about whether
there should be any outreach towards mi-
norities, particularly African-Americans," he
said. "Our research shows that writing off the
black community, especially these newly mo-
bilized voters that Obama brought into the
fold, is very short-sighted."
Equality Florida, one of the two major or-
ganizations in the state to campaign against
Amendment 2, targeted blacks in its efforts to
oppose the measure, Smith said. In studying
polling data before the election, the group's
leaders believed blacks, though socially con-
servative, could be persuaded to align them-
selves with the gay rights cause, he said.
"They were able to approach and engage
the African-American community that this is
an issue of importance to the black commu-
nity by making arguments along civil rights
lines," he said. "Equality Florida just lacked
the financial resources to make the case to
Obama supporters."
Smith collaborated with Stephanie Slade, a
political science graduate student at American
University who did the research while an hon-
ors undergraduate student at UE

passing Web site needed to be developed."
The ECampus Web site serves one ma-
jor goal: to provide information, assistance,
and support for students in their distance
learning endeavors, according to Sally
Coovert, USF Distance Learning Initia-
tives director.
"The new Web site answers the major
questions, without students having to find
their way through a maze of different links
and Web sites," she said.
From the prospective student search-
ing for an appropriate online program to
the current distance learning student try-
ing to navigate the registration process,
the ECampus Web site was set up to an-
swer those questions easily and quickly.
In addition to the support offered on the
Web site, the ECampus staff provides a
live online support chat at specified times
throughout the week. Representatives can
also be reached via email or phone.
"Our aim is to help online learners in
every way possible," Coovert said. "If you
prefer to read the information offered on
the Web pages or in our FAQs to find your
answer, you can do that. If you simply
want to talk to a real person, you can also
do that. Whatever your preference, we are
here to answer your questions and make
your transition into online learning
smooth."

"Between the forums, the keynote
speaker and the expo, our guests will be
exposed to some of our community's lead-
ing thinkers, scholars and practitioners in
health care," said WLP Director Jenna
Felder. "The very accomplished women
and men who have been attending our an-
nual luncheons have come to expect this
high caliber of discourse. They are both in-
terested and interesting as a group of peo-
ple who really care about important issues,
the community and about USE"
The day-long event features a keynote
address by a prominent woman leader and
often covers a topic relative to current
events, women's issues, philanthropy,
and/or leadership.

from pg 1

department and the
project's other
leader.
Florida is one of
the world's major
marine sponge
providers, producing
60,000 to 70,000
pounds annually.
Butler said the
exact methods used
for placing sponge
cuttings are still be-
ing developed, but
it's likely that small
sections will be at-
tached to weighted
bases and placed on
the sea floor. For the
next three years, re-
searchers will as-
sess the cuttings'
survival, growth and
reproduction.
The project came
about partly because
sponges are little-
studied, Butler said.
He has studied lob-
sters for 25 years
and appreciates how
sponges provide
habitat for the crus-
taceans.
Another reason is
that sponge popula-
tions spread
slowly- larval
sponges are free-


swimming, but an-
chor after a few
hours and spend the
rest of their lives in
one place.
Sponge die-offs
are an emerging
problem worldwide,
said Joseph Pawlik,
a professor with the
University of North
Carolina Wilmington
Center for Marine
Science.
Scientists have
only recently begun
to understand the
need for sponge
restoration, Pawlik
said. He called the
restoration project
important, particu-
larly because loss of
marine sponges may
enhance harmful al-
gae blooms.

Falcons continued from pg 3

Based on the allocations from 2009,
Florida would most likely receive five or
fewer permits for peregrines for falconry in
2010. Permit applicants would be randomly
selected, with preference given to Florida
residents.
Peregrines migrate as much as 15,000
miles per year, and on average, 1,700 pere-
grines migrate through Florida, including
the Keys, in the fall as they move between
northern breeding grounds and wintering
areas in Central and South America. Some
peregrines stay the entire winter in the
state, but they do not breed in Florida.
They can be spotted in the fall and winter
over open terrain, particularly near coastal
shorelines and wetlands.

NO MORE PENA
First baseman out for
remainder of the season
after breaking two fingers
BY CAITLIN CRAFT
PINELLAS NEWS
With little or no hope of any
post-season action, the Rays are
finishing up a series against the
Yankees and are headed to
Boston. The last series the Rays
had against the Red Socks ended
with only one win to add to the
Rays record.
And just when the team didn't
think the season could go much
worse, it does. To top off the ma-
jor slump the Rays have been in
recently, first baseman Carlos
Pena will be taking an absence for
the remainder of the season.
the remainder of the season. Douglas E. Jessmer/Pinellas News archives
During the doubleheader last Carlos Pena will have to take a back seat to the AAA rookie
Monday between the Rays and until next season, when his fingers heal after being broken by
the New York Yankees, Pena was a pitcher during the Rays v. Yankee series.
hit in the hand when checking his
swing at an 0-1 count by pitcher CC Sabathia during the first inning. The play was called
a swinging strike.
Before being escorted back to the clubhouse, Pena attempted to take a few more
swings, striking out at the plate. The pitch was clocked at 95 mph. Pena broke his mid-
dle and index finger.
He has been placed on a 60-day disabled list, which takes Pena through the rest of
season without being able to finish. The Rays have chosen to sign Class AAA Durham
player, Chris Richard.
