Ares I-X set to launch on Oct. 27 'li7


CAPE CANAVERAL For the first time in more than
a quarter century, a new vehicle is sitting at Launch Pad
39B at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The
Ares I-X flight test vehicle arrived at the pad atop of a gi-
ant crawler-transporter at approximately 7:45 a.m. EDT
Tuesday.
The crawler-transporter left Kennedy's Vehicle As-
sembly Building at 1:39 a.m., traveling less than 1 mph
during the 4.2-mile journey. The rocket was secured on
the launch pad at 9:17 a.m.
The vehicle is scheduled to launch at 8 a.m. on Oct. 27.
This test flight of the Ares I-X rocket will provide NASA
an early opportunity to test and prove hardware, models,
facilities and ground operations associated with the Ares
I launch vehicle.
The Ares I rocket is being designed to carry astronauts
to space in the Orion crew exploration vehicle. The Ares
I-X test flight also will allow NASA to gather critical data
during ascent of the vehicle's integrated stack, which in-
cludes the Ares I with a simulated upper stage, Orion and
launch abort system. Data collected from more than 700
sensors throughout the rocket will begin to confirm the
vehicle as a whole is safe and stable in flight before as-
tronauts begin traveling into orbit.
"With the arrival of Ares I-X at the pad, this milestone
demonstrates NASA's world-class ability to conceptually
design, build and process a new launch vehicle in just un-
der four years," said Bob Ess, mission manager for Ares
I-X at Kennedy. "Nearly 2,000 NASA and contractor em-
ployees located throughout the United States worked to-


gether in an unprecedented fashion, resulting in the new
vehicle ready for flight."
During the week before launch, technicians at the pad
will perform a variety of electrical and mechanical checks
to ready the vehicle for flight, including hydraulic power
unit hot fire, steering tests and internal power verifica-
tions using flight batteries.
United Space Alliance of Houston is NASA's prime
contractor for the ground processing of the Ares I-X
rocket.
"Processing for the Ares I-X test flight in parallel with
space shuttle operations has been a true challenge in-
volving people and hardware from across the country,
and we're very proud of what the team has accomplished,"
said Mark Nappi, vice president of Launch and Recovery
Systems for United Space Alliance.
ATK Space Systems of Magna, Utah, is NASA's prime
contractor for the first stage of the rocket.
"The NASA and contractor teamwork displayed over
the last four years has been the catalyst that brought us
to this important milestone today," said Bob Herman,
ATK's vice president of Exploration Systems for Kennedy
Space Center Operations. "As the Ares I first stage
provider, we are looking forward to receiving invaluable
data during the flight test."
At the Flight Test Readiness Review on Oct. 23, mis-
sion managers will finalize the launch date and provide the
team with a final "go" or "no go" for launch.

USF Business Professors research MacDill's management
and culture practices to ensure combat effectiveness


TAMPA MacDill Air Force Base is
partnering with experts from the Univer-
sity of South Florida's College of Business
to streamline operations and potentially
trigger one of the largest lean management
transformations ever. Working with the
Sixth Air Mobility Wing (6 AMW), USF
professors will research MacDill's man-
agement, culture, and business practices,
including the transformation initiative
known as Air Force Smart Operations for
the 21st Century (AFSO21), before craft-
ing a change management strategy aimed
at infusing the "Lean" management pro-
gram into daily operations. The project
could potentially impact operations
throughout the entire United States Air
Force.
"Our goal is to increase combat effec-
ti\ tncr:," said Lt. Col. Jim Ledbetter, the 6
AMW AFSO21 director. "We will improve
combat effectiveness with the principles
of AFSO21, by building a stronger, more
agile and combat capable force that our na-
tion can call upon."
The Air Force is using AFSO21 to de-
velop a culture of continuous process im-
provement and waste elimination, said
Ledbetter, adding that, like the nation in
general, the Air Force is facing great re-
source constraints such as aging systems,
increasing cost, and outdated processes.
Through this fundamental transformation,
the Air Force will identify performance
gaps and allow airmen to find innovative
and more effective ways to accomplish mis-
sions, exploit opportunities, and maximize
efficiencies.
"AFSO21, along with USF's experts
Jerry Koehler and John Jermier, will help
the Air Force develop airmen that are prob-
lem-solvers," Ledbetter said. "This will
keep us on the leading edge and enable
the USAF to remain the greatest air force
in the world."
AFSO21 is a program born from the suc-
cesses the air force experienced with the
Massachusetts Institute of Technology's
Lean Aerospace Initiative (now known as
the Lean Advancement Initiative LAI).
LAI enables enterprises to effectively, ef-
ficiently and reliably create value in com-
plex and rapidly changing environments.
USF was the fifth university in the nation
to offer Lean educational courses based on
programs developed by MIT's LAI.
A key part of this congressionally-
funded project will be an evaluation of the
initiatives currently in place to streamline


operations through the AFSO21 program.
Part of a research grant from the Air Force
Office of Scientific Research, the evalua-
tion will include in-depth research of
MacDill's management, culture, current
efficiency measures, and business
processes. Led by principal investigators
and professors Koehler and Jermier, the
nearly three-quarter-million-dollar re-
search program will include both the 6
AMW and the 927th Air Refueling Wing,
the 6 AMW's Air Force Reserve sister
wing.
"The goal is to create and implement
an organizational change strategy for both
wings' based on our research findings,"
said Koehler, an expert in organizational
leadership, design, change, and develop-
ment. "We will determine if their current
attempts at being lean are, in fact, effective
before designing a program," he said. "We
will look to replicate effective practices
and improve processes that are wasteful or
inefficient."
Col. Larry Martin, the 6 AMW Com-
mander, said he is looking forward to the
project partnership, which he envisions
will help MacDill be "one team with no
seam" and lead to a long-term relationship
between USF's business school and
MacDill. He is excited to have the experts
from USF come to MacDill and look at the
current efforts to lean processes and create
a culture of continuous process improve-
ment as he is confident the partnership
and the project will produce results that
will help MacDill and the 6 AMW, along
with reserve partner the 927 ARW, move
towards the goals and objectives set forth
in MacDill's strategic, long-term plan, and
his vision for the 6 AMW to be "America's
Best Wing!"
USF College of Business Dean Robert
Forsythe believes the mutually beneficial
partnership will spark future educational
opportunities for MacDill's employees as
well as research opportunities for USF's
scholars. "We will work to improve effi-
ciencies at the base and, at the same time,
provide an avenue for our faculty to exam-
ine struggles in the organizational change
process," he said, noting that one of the
benefits of being a top research university
is the opportunity to bring real-time, real-
world lessons into the classroom. "Stu-
dents in our management courses will be
learning from the very instructors who will
be spearheading this project."


TAMPA On Oct. 15, Stetson Univer-
sity College of Law students won the in-
augural Veterans Law Appellate Advocacy
Competition in Washington, D.C., compet-
ing against teams from prestigious law
schools around the country. Student advo-
cates argued before the U.S. Court of Ap-
peals for Veterans Claims.
The Stetson Law team of Chase Hatt-
away and Megan O'Neill won the Best Re-
spondent's Brief Award in addition to the
competition. O'Neill was also named Best
Overall Oralist, the highest individual
award given in the competition, which was
held in conjunction with the 20th anniver-
sary of the court.
"Chase and Megan represented Stetson
with poise and professionalism and they
are coming home champions," said Moot
Court Advisor Professor Stephanie
Vaughan.
Professor Michael Allen, a veterans law
expert who recently testified before the
U.S. Senate Committee on Veterans Af-
fairs, coached the team to victory. The
competition was co-sponsored by the U.S.


Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims and
the Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims
Bar Association.
"Moot court competitions in general are
wonderful opportunities for students to
learn the skills needed to be appellate ad-
vocates," said Professor Allen. "This com-
petition in particular is important for stu-
dents to see how they can use their talents
to assist the men and women who fought
for this country."
The U.S. Court of Appeals for Veterans
Claims was created on Nov. 18, 1988, after
nearly three decades of debate. For the
sixth time in our nation's history, Congress
established a court of national jurisdiction
without geographical limits. Few federal
courts have been created since the ratifi-
cation of the Constitution.
Stetson Law's Center for Excellence in
Advocacy began a veterans advocacy clinic
in August at its Tampa Law Center to help
Florida veterans understand their legal
rights. To set up an appointment with the
clinic, interested Florida veterans should
call Stetson at 727-562-7317.


ST. PETERSBURG St. Petersburg
property owners facing real estate liens
get one last chance to clear their prop-
erty's encumbrances through the city's
Lien Amnesty program after a unanimous
vote by City Council to extend the pro-
gram through November. The innovative
program, which was scheduled to end Sep-
tember 30, allows property owners to re-
move liens placed against their properties
by paying a fraction of their unpaid fines if
they meet certain guidelines. The program
applies only to liens placed because of
safety or neglect violations.
Property owners have until November
30 to apply for the program which, if ap-
proved, allows them to pay 20 percent of
the outstanding lien on a single property.
For example, an owner facing $4,000 in
liens would only pay $800 in outstanding
fines to clear their property. Property own-
ers, the owner's attorney or authorized
agent would pay a $50 application fee; all
others pay $100. Owners must not have
active code violations on the current prop-
erty, or any other they own, to qualify. The
program is not available for properties with
Special Assessment liens for lot clearing,
securing structures or building demolition.
Since April, the Lien Amnesty program
has brought in more than $100,000 to city
coffers-money that Codes Compliance Di-
rector Todd Yost says the city probably


wouldn't normally have seen-and cleared
118 liens from properties. He says the
main objective is to lower the number of
city properties with liens, not increase rev-
enue.
"This program has allowed those owners
to re-enter the St. Petersburg real estate
market, either to sell their property or ben-
efit from its equity, getting them out from
under the financial cloud caused by the
lien."
Since the program's inception, almost
2,000 letters explaining the program were
sent to St. Petersburg property owners
with outstanding liens. More than 500 in-
quiries have come into the Codes Compli-
ance office after the initial announcement.
Yost cautions property owners against
missing this new deadline.
"The city has no plans to extend the
deadline after November 30, so it would be
in the property owner's best interest to
act now and clear their properties of that
burden."
The Lien Amnesty program will apply
only to code enforcement liens, not special
assessment liens. Applications for the pro-
gram will be accepted through November
30, 2009. For more information or to apply
for the program, visit
www.stpete.org/codes/lien_amnesty_pro-
gram.asp.

TAMPA The University of South Florida's new
director of the Institute for the Study of Latin Amer-
ica and the Caribbean (ISLAC) has devoted her ac-
ademic career to studying international human
rights and Latin American politics. In her new role,
Rachel May is very eager to build on USF's intel-
lectual strength in Latin American and Caribbean
studies as well as USF faculty expertise in such di-
verse areas as public health and engineering, multi-
cultural education, and race and ethnicity. With this
foundation we can expect ISLAC to be equally rich
and varied in its offerings in order to attract top stu-
dents to its forthcoming bachelor's and expanded
master's degree programs. ISLAC is also planning
for regular academic and community outreach pro-
gramming for students, faculty and people in the
community.
"The links between Tampa and Latin America
and the Caribbean are broad and deep," May said.
"ISLAC is well positioned to facilitate the exchange
of resources between our faculty experts and the di-
verse local community."
Many ambitious plans are taking shape as May
gets acclimated. Applying for foundation and federal
grants is at the top of her list along with reaching
out to the university and Tampa Bay communities.
Fluent in Spanish, May is ready to share her knowl-

stituencies that make up Latin America and the
Caribbean a part of the world that captured her
imagination over two decades ago.
"It is really hard for me to say what drew my in-
terest to Latin America originally," May said. "I
went to Colombia when I was 19 years old to visit
friends and spend the summer, and I just felt like I
had come home. The region has been pretty much
at the center of my life since then."
May graduated magna cum laude in philosophy
from Kenyon College and earned a master's and
Ph.D. in Latin American Studies from Tulane Uni-
versity. She came to USF from the University of
Washington, Tacoma where she worked from 1992
to 2009, a tenured professor since 2000. She was
awarded three Fulbright Fellowships, most recently
a Lecturing and Research Award in 2006, to teach
and conduct research at the University of Buenos
Aires.
She is the author of Terror in the Countryside:
Campesino Response to Political Violence in
Guatemala, 1954-1985, published by Ohio Univer-
sity Press in 2001, and co-edited with Andrew Mil-
ton, (Un)Civil Societies: Human Rights and De-

Hillsborough Health New hospital's most reliable Dog of the Week

Department modifies asset is the building itself Abree

vaccination program Shands Cancer hosptial opens Nov. 1, soothing, yet energy efficient


National shipment delays on N1H1
vaccines cause health departments
revised scheduled availability

TAMPA -- The Hillsborough County Health De-
partment (HCHD) has modified the H1N1 swine flu
vaccination program due to a national delay in vac-
cine shipment. The HCHD received a revised
schedule for the estimated availability of H1N1 vac-
cine October 17. The new estimates reduced the
overall total number of doses available to Hillsbor-
ough County over the course of the program by
11% or roughly 77,000 doses from the original es-
timates.
The impact of this reduction is immediate. Over
the next three weeks vaccine availability for Hills-
borough County has been reduced by approximately
100,000 doses. "Instead of planning to distribute
over 58,000 doses next week, we now only expect
to have 6,000 doses," said Dr. Douglas Holt, Direc-
tor, Hillsborough County Health Department. "The
impact of this reduction has affected our current dis-
tribution plan and prompted these changes."
As a result of the limited supply, the HCHD is fo-
cusing on priority sub-groups within the overall
target group identified for early vaccination. Over
the course of the next week obstetricians will re-
ceive their first doses of injectable vaccine for preg-
nant women and the HCHD will initiate the school-
based vaccination program at selected middle and
high schools based on geographic location and vac-
cine availability.
"We knew it was going to be all about supply, and
had planned for possible delays," said Dr. Holt.
"However, given these new estimates I have asked
my team to revise our current plan to ensure the
limited supply of vaccine reaches the highest pri-
ority groups in our community: pregnant women
and children."
To date, more than 15,200 doses have been dis-
tributed to medical providers and hospitals in Hills-
borough County. The majority of this vaccine was in
the form of live attenuated influenza vaccine ad-
ministered by nasal spray and went to local pediatric
practices.
For the coming weeks, the private provider and
institutional portions of the are being scaled back.
Each obstetrical clinic that requested vaccine will
receive a minimum of 100 doses of the single-unit
dose preservative-free vaccine. We also will be sup-
plying vaccine to pediatricians and hospitals that did
not get vaccine last week. The school-based pro-
gram is also being scaled back. In cooperation with
the school district, the HCHD will provide vaccina-
tion during school hours to nine middle and high
schools next week.
Additional schools, including the after-hours pro-
gram for elementary students, will be scheduled
based on vaccine availability in the coming weeks.
Nationally and here locally the H1N1 (Swine)
Flu is primarily affecting children and young adults.
Additionally, Florida and the nation are seeing very
little H1N1 in our elderly population.

www.wildlifelicense.com/fl.
All applicants, regardless of when they apply,
have the same chance of being selected, as long as
they submit their applications within the application
period. Applicants must apply by 11:59 p.m. Nov. 30

BY KIM ROSE
UF NEW BUREAU
GAINESVILLE Heading to the hos-
pital? These days, the newest member of
your medical team just might be the build-
ing itself and it's likely to play a bigger
role in your healing than you might think.
New trends in hospital design are helping
health-care systems to better choreograph
care and provide a soothing yet energy-ef-
ficient environment.
Consider the Shands Cancer Hospital
at the University of Florida, which opens
Nov. 1. The new 500,000-square-foot,
$388-million medical tower is an exten-
sion of the Shands at UF academic medical
center on its new south campus. The
tower will feature 192 private beds and
will house the Shands Critical Care Center
for emergency and trauma services. Med-
ical teams will serve a variety of inpatients,
including those receiving diagnostic and
therapeutic oncology care.
"Through academic medicine, we offer
patients novel diagnostic and treatment
options by expert physicians, researchers
and teachers, and skilled and compassion-
ate nurses and clinical teams," said Timo-
thy Goldfarb, Shands HealthCare CEO.
"Now we have added a truly innovative,
healing setting that incorporates industry
best practices and therapeutic design to
enhance our patient's overall health-care
experience. This is the hospital of tomor-
row."
Shands and Gainesville Regional Utili-
ties partnered to establish the GRU South
Energy Center to provide 100 percent of
the hospital's energy needs. The onsite
power plant will ensure uninterrupted
power, independent of the city's energy
grid, regardless of a prolonged outage else-
where in the community. It will efficiently
convert fuel into electricity and provide
46 percent savings compared with tradi-
tional fossil fuel-burning generations. Of-
ficials estimate this will save 27 million
kilowatts per year, enough to power about
3,000 homes.
The commitment to use environmen-
tally sustainable construction methods to
build the hospital has earned Shands
HealthCare the silver Leadership in En-
ergy and Environmental Design designa-
tion per the U.S. Green Building Council
rating system.
"We used insulated windows that are
treated to reduce solar glare and white
rooftops designed to reflect heat," said
Brad Pollitt, Shands HealthCare vice pres-
ident for facilities. "The facility's air-con-
ditioning heat wheels help to recover lost
energy and irrigation and drainage sys-
tems use reclaimed water. We provide
showers for employees who bike to work
and special parking for hybrid cars."
Pollitt says that Shands is now being
considered for gold-level LEED certifica-
tion and will be one of a few academic med-
ical centers nationwide to achieve this rat-
ing.
"Opening the Shands Cancer Hospital at
UF marks a milestone for us," said Dr.
David S. Guzick, UF senior vice president
for health affairs and president of the
UF&Shands Health System. "It will en-
able us to meet the growing needs of can-
cer patients, advance our ability to care
for emergency and critical care patients
and ensure our long-term commitment to
meeting the region's health-care needs."
In designing the building, hospital facil-
ities teams worked with architects whose
expertise is health-care environments.
Nursing and medical staff provided input to
incorporate features such as nurse stations
that improve sight lines to patients and


monitoring systems and details that give
patients control of their environment, al-
lowing them to adjust lighting and window
shades with the click of a remote. There is
abundant natural light on each floor and
hallway lights are wall-mounted or re-
cessed so patients aren't subjected to
blinding glare as they are wheeled from
place to place.
"Every planning and design decision we
made as a team was centered on patient
comfort and ease for hospital staff in pro-
viding safe and healing care," said Laura
Stillman, principal-in-charge/project direc-
tor at Flad Architects.
"The new building is light-filled, wel-
coming and easily navigable for patients,
families and staff and we believe it offers
hope to those who will experience it," she
added.
In 2009, more than 100,000 cancer cases
will be diagnosed in Florida, second only to
California in the nation's cancer cases. In
north Florida alone, at least 4,500 new
cases are diagnosed annually. One in seven
adults treated at Shands at UF has a can-
cer-related condition.
The new tower also includes the Shands
Critical Care Center at UF, which com-
bines an emergency department and Level
I trauma center. The emergency room has
62 treatment areas and provides clinical
teams the capacity to treat 100,000 pa-
tients a year. The trauma center has four
large treatment rooms and is strategically
located directly beneath the rooftop helipad
that can hold the weight of two helicopters
at once making care a brief elevator ride
away when every moment counts.
The hospital also includes 12 high-tech
operating rooms designed to accommodate
anticipated evolutions in robotics and 3-D
imaging; surgical intensive and intermedi-
ate care units; and a bone marrow trans-
plant unit, outpatient clinic and stem cell
lab. A full-spectrum radiology department
features the "crown jewel" of imaging, the
Aquilion ONE 320-detector row CT scan-
ner. The $2.5-million diagnostic tool, the
second Shands HealthCare has acquired,
helps physicians diagnose cancer, and it
can detect stroke and heart disease in min-
utes, replacing dozens of other tests that
typically take hours or even days. Shands
was the first in Florida and one of only a
handful in the nation to acquire this tech-
nology.
Ultimately, hospital officials worked hard
to create a setting that underscores their
commitment to hope and healing, from the
Garden of Hope, which provides a place for
quiet reflection, to the Sanctuaries of Si-
lence and Peace, areas for meditation and
prayer.
"As our clinical teams focus on each pa-
tient's medical and physical condition, the
beautifully designed building creates a
healing environment and helps us support
their emotional well-being," Goldfarb said.
Some studies indicate that design im-
provements lead to improved patient out-
comes, although more research needs to
be done, according to Robert Cassidy, edi-
tor-in-chief of Building Design + Construc-
tion magazine, based in Oak Brook, Ill.
"There's great value in saving energy,
improving day-lighting and providing views
of nature and other amenities, such as
healing gardens and family centered pa-
tient rooms and facilities," Cassidy said.
"One of the ways the patients and families
evaluate a health-care setting is how bright
and cozy it is. Whether those elements
have a benefit in reduced length of stay or
other clinical benefits is not scientifically
proven, but our gut tells us they do."

Tampa rivals came together for Susan G. Komen Foundation
TAMPA Several components of the Academy of the Holy Names (AHN) community came together on Friday, Oct. 9
to raise a more than $2,400 for the Susan G. Komen Foundation. The third annual Play for the Cure event first launched
in 2007 by the Academy of the Holy Names (AHN) volleyball team and student council was expanded this year to include
participation by the swimming and diving team, as well as a special performance by the dance team. The AHN volleyball
team played rival Tampa Catholic, and yet the two teams came together wearing pink and to show support for the Susan
G. Komen Foundation. The result was the best Play/Swim for the Cure & Breast Cancer Awareness Night event to date,
and a three-year total donated to Susan G. Komen now reaching $5,600. Congratulations to all who were involved in the
planning and coordinating of this wonderful event, and thank you to everyone who donated to such a worthy cause.

As lawmakers inch closer
to landmark health care re-
form, the National Associa-
tion of Children's Hospitals,
in coordination with the
Congressional Children's
Health Care Caucus, hosted
a Capitol Hill briefing yes-
terday featuring leaders of
Tampa Bay area hospitals.
The briefing, "Chronic Con-
ditions: The Differences
and Challenges for Chil-
dren," examined children's
health matters. U.S. Rep.
Kathy Castor co-chairs the
Congressional Children's
Health Care Caucus.
Representatives from St.
Joseph's Children's Hospi-
tal of Tampa and All Chil-
dren's Hospital of St. Pe-
tersburg were included in
yesterday's briefing. Dr.
Daniel Plasencia repre-
sented St. Joseph's, and Dr.
Michael Epstein repre-


sented All Children's.
"Doctors from Tampa
Bay area hospitals are na-
tionally renowned experts,"
Castor said. "Their insights
will serve America well as
we strive for affordable
health care solutions for
families.
"Children require unique
treatment for physical,
mental and developmental
conditions," Castor contin-
ued. "Families of children
with chronic conditions of-
ten struggle to find quality,
coordinated care to com-
prehensively address their
children's needs. Ensuring
that kids have a good team
of doctors to address
chronic conditions and to
make sure that such care is
more accessible is our ulti-
mate goal."
The Congressional Chil-
dren's Health Caucus has
worked on issues including


CLEARWATER The Clearwater Police Department, the
Clearwater/Tampa Bay Area Task Force on Human Trafficking, St.
Petersburg College and their partners have released a 15-second,
two 30-second and 60-second public service announcements, in
an effort to continue to increase public awareness about human
trafficking. They are presented in both English and Spanish.
The theme of the public awareness campaign is Learn, Look
and Report. Many people are in disbelief that human trafficking
is present in the Tampa Bay Area. "If you don't know what to look
for, you won't see it. Law enforcement needs the public's help be-
cause victims don't self-report. They are usually in fear for their
lives or the lives of their loved ones," said Clearwater Police Lieu-
tenant George Koder, who heads the Clearwater/Tampa Bay
Area Task Force on Human Trafficking.
Human trafficking is the exploitation by force, fraud or coer-
cion of vulnerable people often immigrants for forced labor, do-
mestic servitude or commercial sex operations. Human traffick-
ing is a nine billion dollar a year industry. Florida is one of the top
three destination states for women and children trafficked into
this country. To learn more about human trafficking, visit
www.clearwaterpolice.org or www.HumanTraffickingFlorida.org.
This project is funded by federal grants from the Bureau of Jus-
tice Assistance and St. Petersburg College.

Bay Area Task Force on Human Trafficking, Hispanic Outreach
Center, St. Petersburg College, World Relief, Gulfcoast Legal
Services and the Bureau of Justice Assistance.

GoUSFBulls.com talks

with Coach Stan Heath

about men's basketball


TAMPA On the eve of the BIG EAST
Men's Basketball Media Day at Madison
Square Garden in New York City, GoUSF-
Bulls.com sat down with Coach Stan Heath
to get the inside scoop on the 2009-10
Bulls. Check out the season preview be-
low.
What are the goals for the Bulls in 2009-
10?
In the early part of this season we really
have to bring our chemistry together. We
need to lay a strong foundation and build
our identity around rebounding, defense
and running the ball. As for our goals, we
want to win our home games and we want
to have a strong non-conference season.
We want to be the team that puts ourselves
in the top part of the BIG EAST's regular-
season standings. We also have postseason
aspirations. We have several new players
and we are young, but we feel like we have
the ingredients to take a big step forward.
What has to happen for USF to move
into the next level of play in the BIG
EAST?
We have to be a stronger team on the in-
side. Our inside scoring and rebounding
must improve. Our guards need to utilize
our big guys. The second thing we need to
address is our shooting and defense. We
have to finish games by making free
throws and making solid plays down the
stretch.
Where do you rank the Bulls in the pre-
season BIG EAST polls?
I'll let the media and fans decide that. We
are going to go into every game preparing
to win. We want to make sure we don't
take a night off. The league is still very
strong, and yet we feel like we are a much
stronger team coming into this season.
What are the strengths of this year's
team?
We have experienced guards. Do-
minique Jones is now in his third season,
and I think has become one of the premier
players in the league. Chris Howard is now
a senior for us. We've added Mike Mercer
to our team, who can be an impact player
for us. We also have the addition of An-
thony Crater as the season goes on. So,
having guards with experience is a big key
for us.
We are also more balanced. We were re-
ally one dimensional last year; we were
basically a guard-oriented team. With the
improvement of Gus Gilchrist and the ad-
dition of Jarrid Famous, we feel like we
have a stronger inside game. I've been
pleased with the play of Toarlyn Fitz-
patrick, and we are hopeful Alex Rivas can
join us for the season.
I'm excited with the fact we can play a
faster-paced game. In the past we have
been a bit reluctant to get into a transition
game, but now that we have more depth,
and as long as we stay healthy, we can uti-
lize eight, nine or 10 bodies.
What does this team lack or need to im-
prove upon?
Our defense has to be our foundation.
We need to be a strong rebounding team to
go with our defense. The addition of speed
and size should allow us to improve in
those areas. We have worked hard in the
offseason on shooting and our ball han-
dling skills. Those two areas must improve

FWC introduces young

adults with disabilities

protecting and managir

natural resources

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservatio
mission (FWC) is again teaming up with the
Disability Foundation (www.archerdisability
tion.org/) to introduce young adults with dis2
to careers that involve protecting and mi
Florida's precious natural resources.
The fourth annual Disabled Mentoring I
begin at 10 a.m. on Friday, Oct. 23, at the
South Region office, 8535 Northlake Blvd
Palm Beach.
The media are invited to cover the event
Students with disabilities the mentee:
visit various stations in and around the office
they will be introduced to several species of
wildlife. Live animals will be on display, and c
helicopter will be on site.
Mentees will learn about protected and
ened animals, such as alligators, manatees
turtles. They will also meet mentors, incluw
ologists, administrators and law enforceme
sonnel charged with protecting and ma
Florida's fish and wildlife.
Last year, 30 young adults from local ,
participated in the event.


Disabled Mentoring Day is a national prog
ordinated by the American Association of
with Disabilities.

Men's head basketball coach Stan Heath
as well.
What has Dominique Jones done to im-
prove his game after two strong seasons in
the league?
Dominique Jones has worked hard in
the offseason to improve his three-point
shooting, his mid-range game and attack-
ing the basket. However more importantly
for Dominique will be his ability to utilize
his teammates and make the guys around
him better. If he does this, our team will go
to another level.
Is there another scoring threat to take
some of the offensive pressure off Jones?
Augustus Gilchrist averaged 10 points a
game last year and he wasn't at full
strength. We're seeing a different player
from him this year. I really feel like he's a
guy who can contribute more. Mike Mer-
cer can also contribute from the wing po-
sition. Jarrid Famous also gives us an inte-
rior player that can also give us an
offensive boost through running the floor,
rebounding, put backs and even post shots.
Who has impressed you the most of the
newcomers?
Toarlyn Fitzpatrick. I knew with Jarrid's
experience what he could do, but Toarlyn
has really come on. He is a local product
from Tampa and he has been a kid who has
a lot of potential. A lot of people have seen
it, he has just never really pushed himself.
We are seeing him push himself now, and
he has the skill level to make shots, post
up and run the floor. He's learning a lot.
How good can Jarrid Famous be in the
BIG EAST?
We recruited him as an impact player
and I have no doubt that he can be that way.
I already know he's a strong rebounder, a
strong player in terms of blocking shots
and clogging up the paint. And he can really
run; he doesn't ever get tired. He will
change what USF has been able to accom-
plish on the inside over the past few years,
maybe since we've had Kentrell Grans-
berry.
Who would be your starting five if you
played a game tonight? What about the
next three off the bench?
Jarrid Famous, Augustus Gilchrist, Mike
Mercer, Chris Howard and Dominique
Jones.
Toarlyn Fitzpatrick would be a post
player to come in. On the perimeter Justin
Leemow has experience from last year.
One or two of those three shooters Mike
Burwell, Jordan Dumars or Shaun Noriega
- has to emerge. I can't give you an answer
on those guys yet.
