St. Petersburg Recognized for Initiatives Education Mayoral candidates biggest


Washington, DC A new report by the National
League of Cities (NLC), The State of City Leader-
ship For Children and Families in 2009, recognizes
St. Petersburg, Fla., for its cutting-edge education
initiatives, including the Mayor's Mentors and More
program.
The report is being released during the 2009 Na-
tional Summit on Your City's Families. For more in-
formation on the summit, visit www.nlc.org/iyef.
As cities grapple with the worst budget outlook
in decades, mayors and other municipal leaders
have maintained a strong commitment to children,
youth and their families. The report describes lo-
cal innovations and trends in education, early child-
hood success, afterschool, youth in transition, youth
violence prevention, community wellness, youth
civic engagement, family economic success, and lo-
cal "infrastructure" such as cross-agency planning
entities, data sharing efforts and creative financing
mechanisms to support children and families.
"In recent years, cities have tested creative ap-
proaches to some of the nation's greatest challenges
and achieved impressive results," said Clifford M.
Johnson, executive director of NLC's Institute for
Youth, Education, and Families, YEF Institute,
which published the report. "NLC applauds mu-
nicipal leaders in St. Petersburg for breaking new
ground and inspiring other cities across the country
to take their efforts to the next level."
The State of City Leadership report highlights St.
Petersburg's Mayor's Mentors and More initiative
as one of the nation's three most innovative city
models for improving education. Through Mayor's
Mentors and More, Mayor Rick Baker has engaged
corporate partners and residents in local public


schools and provided an array of incentives and ac-
countability methods for improving student achieve-
ment. Key highlights of this results-oriented busi-
ness approach include the recruitment of 98
corporate partners, efforts and policies to encourage
mentoring, Doorways Scholarships to expand ac-
cess to college for more than 3,000 students, a loan
forgiveness program for teachers who buy a home
in the city and incentives for principals of success-
ful and improving schools.
St. Petersburg's Play 'N' Close to Home Initia-
tive, which seeks to ensure that there is a play-
ground within a half mile walk of every child in the
city, is also featured as part of an "emerging trend"
to increase access to play spaces for children in
low-income areas, and St. Petersburg's online City
Scorecard is highlighted in a chapter on "local in-
frastructure" for children, youth and families.
The report provides a snapshot of the progress
cities have made as the nation's largest network of
public policy "laboratories" and the potential for
future action as municipal leaders identify and share
promising approaches in these areas. The innova-
tions and trends included in the report were se-
lected based on the YEF Institute's intensive work
with thousands of municipal officials in hundreds of
cities over the past 10 years, as well as an open call
for nominations and targeted outreach to other na-
tional organizations in the field.
The National League of Cities is the nation's old-
est and largest organization devoted to strengthen-
ing and promoting cities as centers of opportunity,
leadership and governance. NLC is a resource and
advocate for 19,000 cities, towns and villages, rep-
resenting more than 218 million Americans.

Ford and Foster traded political punches about


religion, secrecy, and of
BY CAITLIN CRAFT
PINELLAS NEWS
This past Monday St. Peters-
burg mayoral candidates, Kath-
leen Ford and Bill Foster, dis-
cussed the issues in a debate
sponsored by Bay News 9 and the
St. Petersburg Times.
The debate was held in Palla-
dium Theater, where just a few
months before ten potential can-
didates lined the stage and de-
bated every issue from one end to
the other.
This time, Ford and Foster nar-
rowed down the issues to what
primarily affected the city and its
citizens. The event was moder-
ated by St. Petersburg Times po-
litical editor Adam C. Smith and
Bay News 9 anchor Al Reuchel.
The candidates were asked
about everything from Tropicana
Field and the Tampa Bay Rays to
city budgeting and crime preven-
tion on BayWalk.
The cheap shots began even


course Rays baseball

the Rays stadium was a well-dis-
cussed topic. Foster still stands
behind the economic influence of
the Tampa Bay Rays. He believes
it brings businesses to the area,
creates jobs, and entertainment,
which brings in tourism. Foster
would rather have the annual in-
come that the team brings to the
area. Ford's position was that the
city has better ways to spend
their money, saying that the city
could not afford a new stadium.
"The trop is just fine," said
Ford.


St. Pete judges chosen for song writing

contest, entry deadline extended


ST. PETERBURG -Three members of St. Pe-
tersburg's arts and entertainment community have
been chosen to narrow entries in the St. Petersburg
City Song contest before the public casts votes for
an official city song. Dr. Cody L. Clark, vocalist and
guidance counselor and magnet recruiter for Gibbs
High School's Pinellas County Center for the Arts;
10Connects morning news anchor Ginger Gads-
den; and Palladium Theater executive director, Paul
Wilborn, will serve as judges for the first official city
song contest, selecting three songs that best rep-
resent St. Petersburg before they are posted at
www.stpete.org for online voting in November.
Clark, a recent member of St. Petersburg's Arts
Advisory Council, oversees an annual community-
wide Black History Month production and has been
instrumental in establishing mentoring programs
for African- American students. Ginger Gadsden,
10Connects morning and noon news anchor, was re-
cently named Best Morning Anchor in Creative
Loafing's "Best of the Bay" contest and is excited
about helping shape St. Petersburg's musical his-
tory. Paul Wilborn has been an award-winning re-
porter, including stints at the St. Petersburg Times
and the Los Angeles bureau of the Associated
Press, as well as a founding member of the Artists
and Writers Group. Wilborn performs in clubs and
concerts around Tampa Bay with his trio, Blue
Roses, and with Paul Wilborn and the Pop Tarts, in
addition to serving as Executive Director of the
Palladium Theater at St. Petersburg College.
The song contest deadline has also been ex-


tended for two weeks, to Monday, October 26, at
11:59 p.m. The reason for the extension was simple,
according to St. Petersburg Mayor Rick Baker.
Shortly after the initial judges were chosen, St.
Petersburg added a fourth judge in the bid to choose
an official city song. WQYK morning radio person-
ality Dave McKay joins Dr. Cody L. Clark, vocalist,
guidance counselor and magnet recruiter for Gibbs
High School's Pinellas County Center for the Arts;
10Connects morning news anchor Ginger Gads-
den; and Palladium Theater executive director, Paul
Wilborn, who were selected earlier this week.
McKay started at WQYK in 1996 on afternoon
drive with veteran broadcaster Randy Price. In
2008, the team was named Major Market Broadcast
Personalities of the Year by the Country Music As-
sociation, while WQYK took home the Major Mar-
ket Station of the Year award. Last month, after 14
years of entertaining Tampa Bay on the drive home,
McKay and Price made the switch to mornings.
McKay, a frustrated musician, says you never know
where you'll find success. "We are often around
many singers and song writers. Some make it, many
don't. Taylor Swift gave her very first radio inter-
view with us when she was 15. She'll be 20 in De-
cember and is now worth millions as she sells out
twenty thousand seat venues in TWO MINUTES!"
The song receiving the most votes will be named
the official St. Petersburg city song and be per-
formed live at Ribfest Saturday, November 14 in Vi-
noy Park. For more information on the St. Peters-
burg city song contest, visit www.stpete.org.


Bayfront Purse Snatcher up to 6 and still at large


ST. PETERSBURG The St. Petersburg Police
Department detectives are investigating a series of
six purse thefts at Bayfront Medical Center (and
other nearby medical facilities) over the past two
months.
The suspect is a black male, 40-45 years old, 6'0"
200-220 pounds, medium complexion, bald head,
grey go-tee, wearing silver sunglasses and was seen
wearing a sleeveless vest over a tan shirt and dark
pants in at least two of the cases. In the video, he is
seen wearing a distinctively large, round wrist-
watch on his left wrist.
The suspect apparently has the access code to re-
stricted areas at Bayfront Medical Center, 701 6th
Street South, where he has struck four times over
the past two months.
In each case, he has stolen a women's purse (or
taken a wallet with credit cards from a purse). Sev-
eral of these stolen credit cards have been used


fraudulently after the theft.
The other two cases occurred at All Children's
Hospital, 801 6th Street South and the St. Peters-
burg Maternal Fetal Medicine, 625 6th Avenue
South. The attached video (with a still-shot imme-
diately following the video) shows the suspect walk-
ing out of Bayfront Medical Center with what we be-
lieve is a stolen purse wrapped in a hospital blanket
in the theft on Tuesday.
SPPD investigators hope that someone in the
public will recognize the suspect and notify our
agency by calling the Communications Center non-
emergency number at 893-7780 or the Economic
Crimes Unit at 893-7618. Anonymous callers can
use our Tip Line at 892-5000.

Mayoral Candidate Kathleen Ford
before the debate was set into
motion. Ford handed out toy di-
nosaurs to make voters think that
Foster puts his faith above his po-
litical views.
With Smith moderating the
candidates seemed to be caught
off guard with some of the ques-
tions, especially during the light-
ning round. Smith made com-
ments about Mayor Rick Baker
firing Police Chief for a racial is-
sue; neither candidate was part of
the process, and they would not
second guess the mayor.
Smith brought up the notion of
secrets, relating the so-called be-
hind closed doors dealing of the
Tropicana contract that Ford ac-
cused Foster of. Foster said noth-
ing is, was, or will be dealt in se-
cret and city council will always
have the appropriate information.
Ford referred to her charter bill,
which, if passed, allows the public
to know what their money is be-
ing spent on. Ford's campaign is
based on community involve-
ment. She spoke mentioned what
she thought was best with every
issue, but always came back to
the people deciding.
Ford continued to recognize the
citizens as being in charge of the
money and how it is used. How-
ever, when budgeting was brought
up by Smith, Foster explained
how Ford was planning on dipping
into city funds that were specifi-
cally set aside for natural disas-
ters.
"I would be happy to go along
with that city budget if Mrs. Ford
could guarantee me that there
would be no 9/11 or hurricane
Charlie again," said Foster.
Of course, the age old issue of

Mayoral Candidate Bill Foster
Foster's religious beliefs were
also questioned during the debate.
Foster said he would not make
any apologies for it, but it would
not be part of his political posi-
tion. When the gay/lesbian/trans-
gender community acceptance
was addressed later on, Foster
said he had no problem with it.
Ford pointed out that he had
never been to any pride events.
Each candidate was asked what
they planned to do about keeping
guns out of the hands of teens.
Both candidates agreed that edu-
cation and awknowlegment of the
hot spots in the city is the best
way to keep crime down.
Foster continued to advocate
his policy on public safety and ed-
ucation, especially when it came
to BayWalk. He mentioned that a
stronger police presence would
make former consumers feel
safer. He wants to reenergize
BayWalk by implementing street
closures for a more festival feel.
Ford said that public safety in
the past has failed. She wants to
bring in better lighting, more vis-
ible, but non-aggressive, law en-
forcement. She did not agree in
vacating the sidewalks, even for a
short period of time.
Before each candidate made
their closing statement Ford and
Foster were asked what the
biggest difference between them
and their opponent was. Ford said
attention to detail, Foster said de-
meanor and temperament.
Foster said that, if elected, he
would focus on public safety and
education. He knows that the city
is not without blemish, and is not
looking to repeat history, but learn
from it.
"I am a doer, a uniter, not a di-
vider," said Foster.
Ford wrapped up the debate by
asking voters to look at who is
paying attention and who they are
going to trust.
"Enough of the good ole' boy
system and backroom dealing,"
said Ford.
The election will be on No-
vember 3rd.

Baker challenges city kids to get

to know their playgrounds


ST. PETERSBURG St. Pe-
tersburg Mayor Rick Baker issues
a challenge to the city's children
to explore the city's playgrounds
and become a "Mayor's Play-
ground Pal."
Now, kids ages 5 to 12 can visit
www.stpete.org/playgrounds and
print out a map of 20 featured
playgrounds citywide. After visit-
ing them with their families, they
can take a quiz with a question
about each playground, such as
where would you find three giant
mushrooms, a double slide and a
tic-tac-toe board, or where could
you climb into a race car that
looks out at the water. Once the
quiz is completed, entrants send
their form into the city's Mayor
Office to have a Mayor's Play-
ground Pal certificate and pin be
conferred. As the program con-
tinues, new playgrounds will be
featured until all the city's play-
grounds have an opportunity to
shine in the spotlight.
Mayor Playground pal LogoSt.
Petersburg has more than 75
wonderful playgrounds located in
neighborhoods throughout the


city. During his term in office,
Mayor Baker created the "Play
n' Close to Home" program where
the city set a goal to have a play-
ground within a half-mile walk of
every child's home in the city.
That program was one of 12 best
practices in the country named by
KaBOOM!, a national non-profit
organization. The agency has also
listed St. Petersburg as a "Playful
City USA" for the past two years.
During the past seven years,
the number of youth living within
a half mile radius of a playground
has increased from 49 to 75 per-
cent. There are 25 new play-
grounds, including 11 on school
properties. Mayor Baker entered
into innovative joint use agree-
ments with Pinellas County
Schools whereby the city could
use school property to build play-
grounds that are open to the
school when in session, and to the
public after hours and on week-
ends.
"Whether it's the aviation-
themed at the new Albert Whitted
Park or the largest playground in
the state at Dell Holmes Park, we


FLA Prepaid College Plans
purchased after Oct. 19
guaranteed by state
TALLAHASSEE There aren't many things in
life that are guaranteed. But beginning October 19,
parents can purchase a Florida Prepaid College Plan
that is financially guaranteed by the state of Florida.
With this safe and secure way to save for children's
higher education, families don't have to worry about
tuition increases or the credit crunch, and they can-
not lose their money when they purchase a Florida
Prepaid College Plan.
The Florida Prepaid College Board begins its
2009-2010 annual enrollment period on Monday,
October 19. The new Florida Prepaid College Plan
prices, posted at www.myfloridaprepaid.com, are
available from October 19 until the sign-up deadline
of January 31, 2010. With college tuition repre-
senting just 16 percent of the total cost for attend-
ing a public university in Florida, four flexible plans
are available through Florida Prepaid College Plan
comprising of tuition, tuition differential fee, local
fees and dormitory housing to help cover the cost
of a college education.
"In current times of economic uncertainty and
rising prices, the peace of mind for a family with a
Florida Prepaid College Plan is more valuable than
ever. You don't have to worry about the economy
when it comes to college savings. Your Florida Pre-
paid College Plan is financially guaranteed by the
State of Florida. And once your family has pur-
chased a Prepaid College Plan, your payments are
fixed and never increase," said Chairman Duane
Ottenstroer of the Florida Prepaid College Board.
The Florida Prepaid College Plans allow families
to prepay tuition, tuition differential fee, local fees
and dormitory housing at today's plan prices.
When a child is ready for college, the Florida
Prepaid College Plan covers the actual cost at any
Florida public university or community college. If
the student decides to attend a private college, out-
of-state college or technical school, the value of
the plan may be transferred to any eligible institu-
tion. To qualify for a plan, the child or child's par-
ent/guardian must be a Florida resident. Parents,
grandparents, friends and even businesses can pur-
chase a plan.
Families can sign up online for a Florida Prepaid
College Plan at www.myfloridaprepaid.com or call 1-
800-552-GRAD (4723) to request an Enrollment
Kit in English or Spanish and speak with a cus-
tomer service representative.

playgrounds, and one attendee
suggested a scavenger hunt as a
way of encouraging the city's chil-

McCollum hits over

1,000 FLA schools

with Cyber Safety

Education program
TALLAHASSEE Attorney General Bill Mc-
Collum Wednesday announced his CyberSafety Ed-
ucation program has reached over 1,000 Florida
schools, a significant benchmark for the program
that was launched in 2007. Freedom High School in
Orange County was the 1,000th school in Florida to
receive the CyberSafety presentation, and the
school's principal emphasized the importance of
having teachers and students learn about safe in-
ternet use.
"Educating children
about CyberSafety is a
vital component in our
figh against online child
predators," said Attor-
ney General McCollum.
"If children know how to
protect themselves and
report the predators,
they can potentially save
lives."
The CyberSafety Ed- photo courtesy of BillMcCollum.com
ucation program, Attor- Attomey General Bill McCollum
ney General McCollum's
top priority since taking office in 2007, combines
real-life stories and examples to help middle and
high school students identify ways they could be
victimized by online predators and encourages safe
internet use. To date, the 50-minute interactive
program has been presented to over 482,000 mid-
dle and high school students statewide.
"Attorney General McCollum's CyberSafety
presentation was highly beneficial to both our stu-
dents and our teachers," said Freedom High School
Principal Harold Border. "While the internet is a
valuable resource, it is imperative that children are
aware of the dangers of releasing too much personal
information online and learn how to protect them-
selves from child predators."
The Attorney General's CyberSafety Education
program has been endorsed by the Florida Depart-
ment of Education, the Florida School Board Asso-
ciation, the Florida Association of School Adminis-
trators, the Florida Association of District School
Superintendents, the Florida School Resource Of-
ficers Association, the Florida Police Chiefs Asso-
ciation, the Florida Sheriffs Association and the
Florida Commission on the Status of Women. The
presentations have also been hailed as among the
best in the nation by John Walsh, co-founder of the
National Center for Missing and Exploited Chil-
dren and host of America's Most Wanted.
Parents are encouraged to contact their chil-
dren's schools and encourage their principals to
contact the Attorney General's Office to schedule a
presentation.

8-Foot Manatee


Ieni IIIu La- UU1


COLLIER Biologists with the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commission's (FWC) Fish
and Wildlife Research Institute rescued a manatee
in Shell Key Bay near Goodland in Southwest
Florida on Tuesday.
Staff from the Rookery Bay Reserve National
Estuarine Research Reserve and the U.S. Fish and
Wildlife Service, along with citizen volunteers,
helped FWC biologists and law enforcement officers
pull the approximately 8-and-a-half-foot, adult fe-
male manatee aboard the rescue boat.
After the rescuers brought the manatee to shore,
they transported it to Tampa's Lowry Park Zoo for
rehabilitation.
Biologists rescued the animal because of visible
watercraft-related injuries, including fresh wounds
on the manatee's right side. The manatee was list-
ing to one side, which may indicate a punctured
lung filled the body cavity with air.
To report a dead or distressed manatee, call the
FWC Wildlife Alert Hotline at 888-404-FWCC
(3922).

FWC has updated


GAINESVILLE University of Florida
researchers have grown tumors in mice
using cells from inflamed but noncancerous
colon tissue taken from human patients, a
finding that sheds new light on colon can-
cer and how it might be prevented.
Scientists observed that cancer stem
cells taken from the gastrointestinal sys-
tem in patients with a chronic digestive
disease called ulcerative colitis will trans-
form into cancerous tumors in mice.
The finding, now online and to be fea-
tured on the cover of the Thursday (Oct.
15) issue of Cancer Research, may help
explain why patients with colitis have up to
a 30-fold risk of developing colon cancer
compared with people without the disease.
New understanding of the link between
colitis and cancer could lead to diagnostic
tests that would evaluate tissue taken from
patients with colitis for signs of cancer
stem cell development, thereby identifying
patients who may be at greater risk for
cancer.
"Ultimately it would be great if we could
prevent colitis or treat colitis so it never
gets to the cancerous stage," said UF col-
orectal surgeon Dr. Emina Huang, who is a
member of the Program in Stem Cell Biol-
ogy and Regenerative Medicine at UF's
McKnight Brain Institute and the UF Col-
lege of Medicine.
Although colonoscopy is very effective
in screening and preventing colon cancer
for most people, for patients with colitis no
diagnostic tests work well because the in-
flamed tissue makes identification of pre-
cancerous changes difficult.
According to the Crohn's and Colitis
Foundation of America, approximately
700,000 people have colitis in the United
States. The National Cancer Institute es-
timates that cancer of the colon and rectum
will claim the lives of about 50,000 people
this year.
UF scientists gathered colitic tissue
from humans and chemically screened it
for colon cancer stem cells, also called tu-
mor initiating cells. These cells were then
isolated and monitored in mice to see if tu-
mors would grow.
Huang said these findings shed light on
that fact that it may not be just the cancer
"seed" cell, but the "soil" in this case
inflamed colon tissue that plays a role in


the development of cancer.
"Is it the seed, is it the soil or is it their
interaction?" she said. "We think probably
both, but now we have a new way to look
at it and a new method of attack."
Dr. B. Mark Evers, a professor and vice
chair of surgery at the University of Ken-
tucky College of Medicine, said the study
emphasizes the emerging role of the sur-
rounding inflammatory tumor microenvi-
ronment on tumor growth and subsequent
metastasis.
"Dr. Huang and her group have identi-
fied a potentially important mechanism to
explain why long-standing inflammation of
the colon predisposes patients to the de-
velopment of cancer," said Evers, who is
director of the Lucille P Markey Cancer
Center in Lexington, Ky.
To further understand the role of the
"seed" and "soil" interaction, UF re-
searchers paired colon cancer stem cells
with normal, colitic and cancerous human
cells taken from the scaffolding layer of
the large intestine. The cells were im-
planted into mice to analyze growth rates.
The combination of tumor cells and normal
scaffolding tissue cells grew at the slowest
rate. Tumor cells paired with cancerous
tissue grew at an intermediate rate, and tu-
mor cells paired with the colitic tissue
grew at the fastest rate.
Huang said they found heightened lev-
els of two immune system hormones
called interleukin-6 and interleukin-8 in
the cells from the colitic and cancerous
tissues, which had the faster growth rates.
When UF researchers decreased the ex-
pression of these hormones within the
cells, the tumor growth drastically de-
creased. When the hormones returned, the
tumors began to grow again.
"We don't understand the transition at
the molecular level so we are trying to fig-
ure out what we can target to interfere, in-
tervene or inhibit that transformation of
the benign colitic cells," she said. "The
thought is if we can create a therapy to de-
crease function of these hormones, we may
be able to prevent or inhibit cancer
growth."
Clinical trials looking at the role of one
of these hormones in humans are under
way in England, Huang said.

So here we have the sweet-
est, most devoted duo in the
building: Bazil and Marlo (Baz is
the big brother). Actually they
were from the same litter so they
are the same age, but Bazil takes
his duties very seriously and is
very protective and loving to-
wards his little sister as they
only have each other. (Until they
have you!). Bazil always seems
to have a bit of a sad look on his
face, but he's actually the more
outgoing of the two; beautiful lit-
tle sister Marlo is very gentle
and sweet and lady-like. When I
met them they both seemed a
little nervous and keen to hide,
but after just a little stroking &
scratching they were much more
outgoing. They will take a little
patience from you, but I guaran-
tee you will reap huge rewards of
love from this delightful pair.

boating safety laws UF Researchers issued $1.4 million grant for

research killer virus in Caribbean Spiny Lobster


New laws aimed at boating safety and protecting
natural resources are in effect. The Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) and
other law enforcement agencies throughout state
are out to alert Floridians to new laws and en-
hancements to existing laws that deal with boating
under the influence, boating safety education, wa-
terway markers, possession of gasoline on a vessel
and destruction of coral.
The enhanced penalty for BUI is the same as it
is for driving under the influence. The blood-alcohol
level or breath-alcohol level of 0.20 that was a vio-
lation in the past has changed to 0.15.
Beginning Jan. 1, 2010, any boater born on or af-
ter Jan. 1, 1988 will be required to take an approved
boating safety course and possess an FWC-issued
boating safety identification card. Anyone born on or
after Jan. 1, 1988 and purchases a boat will have 90
days from the purchase date to obtain a boating
safety identification card.
Another prohibited activity is placement and use
of a waterway marker that does not conform to the
U.S. Aids to Navigation System and does not have
an FWC permit. It's also unlawful for boaters to
moor to government-placed waterway markers or
lawfully placed waterway markers except in emer-
gency situations or with written consent of the
marker's owner.
Also, it is illegal to possess or operate a vessel
with nonconforming or unapproved gasoline con-
tainers or to transport gasoline in an unventilated or
improperly ventilated compartment.
Laws regarding titling, numbering and registra-
tion now apply to any vessel operated, used or
stored on state waters except vessels lawfully
stored at a dock or marina.

UF NEWS BUREAU
The Caribbean spiny lobster is one of Florida's top com-
mercial seafood species, with an annual $27 million harvest
- but a recently discovered virus is killing the crustaceans
and threatening the industry.
Now, scientists with the University of Florida and several
other institutions have been awarded a three-year, $1.4 mil-
lion National Science Foundation grant to research trans-
mission of the virus, known as PaV1.
The research should answer many lingering questions
about the spread and geographic distribution of the pathogen,
and could lead to management strategies and new methods
for identifying infected lobsters, said Don Behringer, an as-
sistant professor with UF's Institute of Food and Agricultural
Sciences.
One of the main issues to be investigated: whether the
virus is dispersed long distances by lobster larvae, which
float hundreds of miles during their first months. Infected
spiny lobsters have been found in far-flung places, including
the Florida Keys and parts of Mexico, Belize and St. Croix.
"This project will give us insight into how pathogens are
spread in the marine environment," said Behringer, a co-dis-
coverer of the virus. "Anything we can do to understand how
the disease spreads, and how we might limit its spread, has
implications for management of the disease."
If the study confirms that PaV1 is spread by lobster larvae,
that would have implications for other species and other
diseases, because many marine animals go through a free-
floating larval stage, said Mark Butler, a professor with Old
Dominion University in Norfolk, Va.
During the project, researchers will examine possible
forms of virus transmission, the virus' effects on lobsters,
and factors influencing local disease outbreaks, Butler said.
They will also hold workshops for fishermen and resource
managers in Florida and the Caribbean.
The virus was discovered in 1999 by Behringer, Butler and
Jeffrey Shields with the Virginia Institute of Marine Sci-
ence. Many of the early findings regarding PaV1 epidemiol-
ogy came while the team was working at the Keys Marine
Laboratory located on Long Key. This work showed that the
disease primarily kills juvenile spiny lobsters, though some
become infected without apparent harm.
The PaV1 virus attacks blood cells and tissues, causing
lobsters to become listless and solitary, Behringer said. Most
eventually die from metabolic depletion, a condition charac-
terized by loss of energy.
Beginning with the 2000-2001 lobster season, harvest
declined approximately 30 percent from previous harvest
years and has yet to rebound, said John Hunt, a longtime lob-
ster biologist and program manager with the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commission.
Hunt said he believes the virus is a likely cause of the re-
duction.

Researcher Don Behringer, right, trains student intern Michael Dickson to
identify Caribbean spiny lobsters infected with the virus PaV1, at a
laboratory on Long Key. Behringer is part of a research team that was
just awarded a $1.4 million grant to study transmission of the virus,
which often kills infected lobsters.
Florida produces more than 90 percent of the nation's
spiny lobster; in 2007 the harvest was about 3.8 million
pounds, with a dockside value of $27 million, according to the
Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services.
Recreational lobster diving is also a significant tourist in-
dustry.
The Caribbean spiny lobster is found in the Gulf of Mex-
ico, Caribbean Sea and western Atlantic Ocean, from
Bermuda to Brazil, Behringer said.
In the United States, spiny lobster represents less than 10
percent of national lobster production, with Maine lobster ac-
counting for 90 percent or more, according to the U.S. De-
partment of Agriculture. Worldwide, Maine and spiny lobster
each represent about one-third of the total harvest.
The research team includes faculty and students from
UF Old Dominion, the University of Miami and the Virginia
Institute of Marine Science.
Behringer, Butler and other members of the research
team are researching methods for managing PaV1, with fund-
ing from the Florida Sea Grant program

ESPN features USF men's

basketball eight times

during 2009-2010 season


TAMPA The University of South
Florida men's basketball team will com-
pete on both national and local television
on 20 separate occasions throughout the
2009-10 season, highlighted by eight
games on the ESPN family of networks.
USF fans will be able to catch every
home and away BIG EAST game on either
television or through their computers.
USF will find itself on either ESPN or
ESPN2 twice in 2009-10, starting with the
Jan. 20 contest at Cincinnati that will be
shown on ESPN2. The Jan. 28 game
against Seton Hall at the Sun Dome is set
to be broadcast on either ESPN or ESPN2.
Four other BIG EAST matchups
throughout the season will be shown on
ESPNU as well. The Bulls' first home
game in league play against Notre Dame
Jan. 5 will be carried by ESPNU, as well as
the Feb. 16th home game against Cincin-
nati.
USF's away games at Providence Jan. 23
and at DePaul March 2 will also be broad-
cast live by ESPNU. In addition, two more
of USF's home games, against Rutgers on
Jan. 16 and versus Providence Feb. 27, can
be found on ESPN 360.
Along with the ESPN family of net-
works, Bright House Sports Network will
showcase the Bulls multiple times in 2009-
10, with 10 games officially scheduled for
the network. In addition, two more con-
tests will be shown on either BHSN or lo-
cal ABC affiliate WFTS-TV
USF's first home game of the season
against Virginia Nov. 16 and the Dec. 16
matchup with Central Florida at the Sun
Dome will both be carried live on BHSN. A
trio of BIG EAST home games West Vir-
ginia Jan. 13, Pittsburgh Jan. 31 and Con-
necticut March 6 will also be found on
BHSN.
Fans looking to catch some of USF's
away games in BIG EAST play will get the
chance on BHSN, as it will show five of the
team's games away from Tampa, beginning
with the first BIG EAST contest of the
year against Louisville Dec. 30.
Other road contests that will be found
on BHSN include: Jan. 10 at Syracuse, Feb.
3 at Georgetown, Feb. 13 at Marquette and
Feb. 24 at Villanova. The other two BIG

University of South Florida will be featured on the
big screen for a number of Big East games on one
of the biggest sports broadcasting networks.
EAST games for USF at Notre Dame Feb.
7 and against St. John's Feb. 20, will be
broadcast on either BHSN or WFTS-TV
and will be the BIG EAST Network's
Game of the Week.
Head coach Stan Heath returns to the
bench for his third season with USE The
Bulls will be led on the court by junior Do-
minique Jones, who was tops on the team
and finished seventh in the BIG EAST with
18.1 points per game.
Also making the return back with the
Bulls are seniors Chris Howard and Alex
Rivas and sophomores Augustus Gilchrist
and Justin Leemow, all of whom started
eight or more games in 2008-09. Gilchrist
finished third in scoring for USF with 10.2
points per game, while Howard and Rivas
averaged 7.7 and 4.2, respectively.
USF welcomes six new faces to the
2009-10 roster four freshmen and two
transfers while Ohio State transfer An-
thony Crater will be eligible to play in De-
cember after practicing with the team in
the spring.
The Bulls will look to replace the serv-
ices of Eladio Espinosa, Aris Williams,
Mobolaji Ajayi and Jesus Verdejo, who
combined for 60 starts last season. Verdejo
ranked second behind Jones in scoring with
12.2 points per contest.


Biologists with the
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission's
(FWC) Fish and Wildlife Re-
search Institute and the
University of Florida need
assistance with a statewide
largemouth bass research
study. This year-long proj-
ect is an interactive way for
the public to help biologists
obtain critical information
necessary to manage the
largemouth bass fishery for
quality and trophy-sized
fish.
From this study, biolo-
gists hope to learn how fre-
quently bass are caught and
harvested. They also hope
to learn more about the size
range of fish caught.
Beginning this month, bi-
ologists are tagging large-
mouth bass with small, yel-
low tags along the back of
the fish just below the dor-
sal fin. These tags carry a
printed telephone number,
e-mail address, tag number
and reward value. Anglers
should carefully examine all
bass caught in Florida lakes
for reward tags, as biolo-
gists will tag fish in numer-


Large mouth bass with tag.
ous lakes throughout the
state.
Biologists encourage an-
glers to remove these tags
by cutting them as close to
the fish as possible and then
treat the fish as they would
normally.
Once anglers remove a
tag, they should immedi-
ately report it to the FWC
Angler Tag Return Hotline
at 800-367-4461 or e-mail
TagReturn@MyFWC.com.
Anglers participating in
the study will receive a re-
ward for each largemouth
bass tag they return to the
FWC. When reporting the


"0 Lei 4

tag, anglers should provide
the following information:
the species of fish,
tag number, fish length,
date and time of
capture,
name of the lake where
the fish was caught, and
whether the angler kept
or released the fish.
Anglers should mail the
tags to:
