OBAMA BRINGS


$1.25 BILLION FOR



HIGH-SPEED RAIL

Obama announces high-speed rail in Tampa; says he'll be back to ride it


President Barack Obama spoke at the University of Tampa, Thursday afternoon
BY: DANIELA DISTEFANO
PINELLAS NEWS project would create up to


TAMPA- On the heels of his
first State of the Union address
Wednesday, President Obama
arrived at the Bob Martinez
Sports Center at the Univer-
sity of Tampa Thursday after-
noon for a town hall meeting.
A jazz band greeted the
crowd of approximately 3,000,
along with a large red banner
reading, "The University of
Tampa Welcomes President
Obama." Starting almost 45
minutes later than originally
planned, the President re-
ceived a start-studded wel-
come as he entered.
"It's great to be back in the
sunshine state, especially in
January," he began.
With Vice-President Joe
Biden, Obama announced
Florida will receive $1.25 bil-
lion in funding for a high-speed
rail line from Tampa to Or-
lando. The funding will have
great impact for the Tamp area,
strengthening the economy
and bringing much needed jobs
to Florida.
"I'm going to come back
down here and ride it," he said
to the crowd. "Y'all have a
date!"
Having toiled with plans for
high-speed rail for years, the
state applied for $2.6 billion in
federal stimulus money to
build the Tampa-Orlando line.
The application indicates the


15,000 construction jobs, as
well as additional permanent
jobs once the line is up and
running by 2014.


A high speed rail supporter holds up
a T-shirt during the announcement.
"You are the most ready, and
your plans are the most ad-
vanced," Vice-President Joe
Biden said. "It made the most
sense to start here."
The rest of the $8 billion in
Recovery Act grants will go to-
wards the creation of a high-
speed rail corridor connecting
Tampa and Orlando to Miami,
by 2017, as well as 13 other
potential rail corridors across
the country.
Obama said high-speed rail
would "build our infrastructure
deep into the 21st century,"
adding how other countries
have already been doing the
same for quite some time. "It
is good for the economy of the
region, and good for individual
lifestyles and productivity be-


n.

cause people won't be frus-
trated stuck in traffic for
hours."
University of Tampa's Asso-
ciate Dean of Students and the
Director of the Office of Stu-
dent Leadership and Engage-
ment, Stephanie Holtz, began
the town hall with the Invoca-
tion. Sofia Cardenas, 7, and Su-
sannah Wertz, 9, students at
St. Mary's Episcopal Day
School in Tampa, lead the
Pledge of Allegiance. Univer-
sity of Tampa senior Melissa
Steiner then took the stage to
sing the National Anthem.
The last President to visit
the Tampa area was President
Bush in May of 2007 who ad-
dressed a large military audi-
ence at MacDill Air Force Base
about the progress in Iraq.
Among the various local of-
ficials sitting front-and-center
for Obama's appearance was
St. Petersburg Mayor Bill Fos-
ter. Foster said he was there
to represent the city and en-
sure the rail announcement
would have positive influences
on St. Pete. "Connecting the
rail to us will be imperative to
tourism," Foster said. "We are
the destination for tourists.
They come for the beaches,
the arts & culture, and the
events."

old stretched for five blocks in

Interior designer Champion hosts program at Clearwater Library

PINELLAS NEWS

CLEARWATER- Spring
will soon be here, and with it
will be thoughts of organizing
and redecorating those over-
looked areas of the home. But
while your heart may be
dreaming of new outdoor fur-
niture or curtains for your liv-
ing room, your checkbook
might be telling you other-
wise.
Sprucing up your living
space does not have to cost a
fortune, especially when you


enlist the advice of Jason
Champion. The interior de-
signer will be hosting a free
program at the Clearwater
Main Library titled Creative
Thinking in Design.
A full service designer and
stylist for 15 years, Champion
will focus on creative but in-
expensive ideas to personal-
ize any area of the home.
"Jason is a very entertain-
ing speaker, and he has a
wealth of information to share
with people looking to do
some redesigns in today's
economy," said Jan Nickols,


the program director.
Champion, who lives in
Sarasota, has made the most
of his impeccable taste by in-
corporating elegance and
youthful charm into his func-
tional outdoor furniture and
fabric lines. He was also a fi-
nalist on HGTV's Design Star
television show.
The event will be Feb. 4 at
2 p.m. at Clearwater Main Li-
brary, 100 N. Osceola Ave.

Mayor Fc

Night Ou
BY: DANIELA DISTEFANO
PINELLAS NEWS
ST.PETERSBURG- Are you
looking for an opportunity to
voice your opinion about
garbage collection in your
neighborhood? Do you have a
permit issue you need to re-
solve but have not had the time
to get down to City Hall? Or
maybe you have just always
wanted to meet with the Chief
of Police?
A new city program will of-
fer St. Petersburg residents an
opportunity to have face-to-
face interaction with the indi-
viduals who help provide es-
sential services to the
community.
Recently announced by
Mayor Bill Foster, "Mayor's
Night Out" will be an eight-
night series where the mayor,
along with council members,
police and fire chiefs, city ad-
ministrators and directors, will
be available to meet with the
public on a one-on-one basis.
"Most people can't make it
to City Hall during the work-
day, and it's not always easy to
get an appointment with the
mayor or officials," Mayor Fos-
ter said. "With these sessions,
citizens can meet with me and
senior city staff to pose their
questions and get assistance
with any city services they
may need."
Although the series is the
first of its kind in St. Peters-
burg, similar initiatives have

average adult takes 15 to 20
breaths a minute over 20,000
breaths day. Oxygen from each
breath is transferred from our
lungs into the bloodstream and
sent as life-sustaining fuel to
all the cells in the body.
Healthy lungs are an impor-
tant part of an overall healthy
lifestyle, and the American
Lung Association in Florida is
working to prevent lung dis-
ease and promote lung health
awareness.
The organization will be
hosting the 2nd annual St. Pe-
tersburg Wine and Food Festi-
val on Feb. 26 in North Straub
Park in support of their educa-
tional, advocacy and research
efforts.
"This is a great event for us
to raise awareness about the
severity of lung disease, and
promote the importance of ed-
ucation on the matter," said


)ster's


been successful in other cities.
Mayor Foster said the Mayor
Jerry Abramson of Louisville,
KY, has found the program to
deliver more community im-
pact than any other public
meetings.
"It's all about the interac-
tion," Mayor Foster said. "This
will get us up from behind our
desk and out of the office and
to the people we serve."
Mayor Foster believes the
program will be a learning ex-
perience for both the public
and city staff, and he hopes it
will expand past the eight
scheduled dates.
Even if residents do not
have pressing issues, Mayor
Foster hopes they will come
share their ideas for city im-
provement or just come out to
meet the heads of the depart-
ments.

manager for the Florida asso-
ciation.
The American Lung Associ-
ation reported that lung dis-
ease, along with asthma, em-
physema and lung cancer, is
the third leading cause of death
in the country.
All proceeds from the festi-
val go directly to lung illness
research and creating educa-
tion and prevention programs
in schools and hospitals.
More than 20 local restau-
rants will showcase their finest
cuisines, and attendees will be
given a chance to pleasure
their palette with select vin-
tages from the Premier Bever-
age Company. Jazz musician
Les Sabler will perform at the
outdoor event downtown St.

All shook up: The Ultimate Elvis

Tribute Artists come to town


BY: DANIELA DISTEFANO
PINELLAS NEWS
ST.PETERSBURG- There
will be some good rockin' this
weekend in St. Petersburg
when the first-ever Ultimate
Elvis Tribute Artists Tour
presents a musical shindig fit
for a king. Audiences will feel
like Presley is back in the
building as hip-swiveling trib-
ute performers with chunky
sideburns and blue suede
shoes shake up the Mahaffey
Theater Jan. 31.
The two-hour show will fea-
ture four tribute artists chosen
from the annual Ultimate Elvis
Tribute Artist Contest held by
Elvis Presley Enterprises, Inc.
in Memphis,TN. Each per- "You ain't nothing
former will pay homage to an
era of the king of rock n' roll's career, from the
1950s and 1960s, to his hit movies and concert
years.
The first time Elvis performed in the area
was at Ft. Homer Hesterly Armory in Tampa on
May 8, 1955. Presley's final visit to the Tampa
Bay area was on Valentine's Day in 1977, only
a few months before his death.
In celebration of what would have been the
king's 75th birthday on Jan. 8, the 26-city na-
tionwide tour will give fans the chance to see
some of the most talented Elvis tribute artists
in the world.
"Everyone will be blown away by the show,"
said tribute artist Victor Trevino, 25. "Even if
you are not a big Elvis fan, there is so much to
learn about music history. This is definitely not
a stereotypical impersonator show."
Trevino pays tribute to Presley in the rocka-
billy '50s and movie era, recreating the excite-
ment of the king's popular years.
"When he first started he was so raw and
wild," Trevino said. "He was considered devil-
ish because he was so different, but he was de-
termined to be himself."


MAYOR Continued from PAGE 1


As a candidate, Mayor Foster promised to
be more accessible to community leaders and
residents alike. Furthermore he vowed to pay
greater attention to areas most often over-
looked, such as Midtown and west St. Peters-
burg, where the first two seminars are sched-
uled.
Mayor's Night Out will travel to each coun-
cil district, beginning on Feb. 11 in District One
atJ.W. Cate Center located at 5801 22nd Ave. N.
The sessions will be held on the second Thurs-
day from February to October, excluding June
and July. The session held in November will be
on the first Thursday, instead of the second.
The sessions will begin at 7 p.m. and lasting un-
til all residents receive the services they need.
Residents are invited to attend any of the
sessions regardless of their district. For the
complete schedule, visit www.stpete.org


but a hound dog," croons Elvis tribute artist Victor Trevino

Trevino, who has been an Elvis tribute artist
for three years, said the show is a celebration of
the music and the life of a pop icon. It is a pos-
itive look at an artist who is forever preserved
in many memories as the star-studded per-
former whose every lip curl could send teenage
girls into a frenzy.
"No one could have understood the impact he
would have on music history," Trevino said.
"They way he mixed blues, country, and rock
and roll gave him a sound like no other."
The Elvis tribute artists will be joined by a
live band, back-up singers, dancers, and an Ann-
Margret tribute artist, as well as iconic imagery
from the Graceland archives.
Hailing from a family of performers and mu-
sician in Fort Worth, Texas, Trevino has earned
numerous awards and titles in the three years
he has been an Elvis tribute artist. In 2009 and
2008, he was a finalist in the Ultimate Elvis
Tribute Artist Contests. He took first place in
the 2009 Branson Ultimate Elvis Competition
and has performed at casinos, hotels, theaters,
festivals and The Elvis Cruise, in addition to be-
ing the headliner at the 2009 Tupelo Elvis Fes-
tival in Tupelo, MS.

Tracing the history of St. Petersburg's Dog of the Week


downtown waterfront parks Roeo


BY: DANIELA DISTEFANO
PINELLAS NEWS
ST. PETERSBURG- On
Christmas Eve 1909, St. Pe-
tersburg was given what
William Straub called "the best
Christmas present the city
ever received." Then editor of
the St. Petersburg Times,
Straub announced the city's
purchase of land for Waterfront
Park, the property that would
be dedicated
as public park-
land in De-
cember 1910.
Prior to these
decisions the
downtown wa-
terfront was
well on its
way to becom-
ing a marine
industrial
area.
Now, 100
years later,
the city will
mark this
milestone an- Poster for Centennia
niversary of the founding of St.
Petersburg's waterfront parks
with a year of celebrations.
Among the events commemo-
rating the long treasured park-
land is the Perspectives on the
Parks program. The first of the
three free programs will be
Feb. 10 at the Fish and Wildlife


Research Institute Steidinger
Auditorium, 100 8th Avenue
S.E., St. Petersburg, at 7 p.m.
"We hope this program will
help residents learn about the
history of our beautiful parks
and have a greater appreciation
for these public places," said
Peter Belmont, chair of the Wa-
terfront Parks Centennial Cel-
ebration committee.
At the first event, a panel of
experts will
look back on
the history of
the downtown
waterfront
park system
and at the mo-
mentous deci-
sions in 1909
and 1910 to
purchase and
dedicate prop-
erty along the
downtown wa-
terfront as
public park-
photo provided by PCC land. The
Celebration public will
have an opportunity to ask
questions and share their own
memories of the parks.
Panelists at the first talk in-
clude former St. Petersburg
Mayor Rick Baker, who is serv-
ing as the Waterfront Parks
Centennial honorary chair; Will
Michaels, president of Saint


Postcard of downtown St. Petersburg waterfront parks from early 20th century.


Petersburg Preservation; Dr.
Gary R. Mormino, co-director
of the Florida Studies Program
at the University of South
Florida St. Petersburg and Dr.
Bruce Stephenson, director of
the Environmental Studies/
Growth Management Program
at Rollins College.
Along with the discussion
panel, Belmont said the pro-
gram will include a special per-
formance by actors playing his-
torical figures such as Peter
Demens, the co-founder of the
city who was instrumental in
bringing the railroad 1888 and
Katherine Bell Tippetts,
founder of the St. Petersburg
Audubon Society and a sup-
porter of waterfront parks.
Belmont said the second


event, scheduled for April 29,
illustrates the history of seg-
regation in the parks, while the
third forum, Sept. 23, focuses
on how the park system com-
pares with other cities, and
what might be in store for the
future.
"We have so many great
public parks in our city," said
Belmont, who is also vice-pres-
ident of St. Petersburg Preser-
vation. "It is important to think
about ways to preserve and en-
hance the parkland for us to
enjoy for the next 100 years."
The events are made possi-
ble by a grant from the Florida
Humanities Council. For more

Tampa student among 300 nationwide Intel Science finalists


BY: DANIELA DISTEFANO
PINELLAS NEWS
TAMPA- Nicholas Wood-
ward decided he was going to
become a physicist one day
while he was watching televi-
sion.
"We had just got the Science
Channel at my house and a pro-
gram about string theory came
on," he said. "It was so fasci-
nating to me that math and
physics can be something so
beautiful in the world. That's
when I knew what I wanted to
do."
A senior at Blake High
School in Tampa, the 18-year-
old is well on his way to reach-
ing his career goals. Woodward
was recently named a Semifi-
nalist in the 2010 Intel Science
Talent Search (Intel STS).
"I've wanted to enter this
contest for a while now," said
Woodward, who learned about
the competition on a website
called College Confidential.
"I'm extremely happy I got this
far, and had the opportunity to
see if I was at the caliber of
other science students."
Woodward was among 300
teens nationwide competing
for the top prize in the compe-
tition, and the only semifinalist


from Florida. The Intel STS is
part of the Society for Science
& the Public, and is America's
most prestigious science com-
petition for high school sen-
iors. Since 1998 it has provided
a national stage for young sci-
entists to present their original
research to professionals in the
science field.
Woodward's research proj-
ect is entitled "In Search of
Topological Insulators." He
studied the properties of these
materials, which he says will
be vital to the development of
future super-computers known
as spintronic devices and quan-
tum computing.
Woodward began studying
topological insulators while he
was a summer lab intern at
The Massachusetts Institute of
Technology (MIT). He then
spent three months conduct-
ing research and reading about
his subject area to write the re-
search paper.
Semifinalists were selected
from more than 1,700 students
who entered the competition.
Each Semifinalist, and each of
their schools, has been
awarded $1,000 in recognition
of the achievement. Woodward
says he will be putting his prize


I used to live with three
kids, dogs and a cat, but then
my family had to move and
couldn't take me with them.
They brought me to the SPCA
Tampa Bay so that I could find
a new loving family and I can't
wait to meet them! I have a lot
of puppy energy to burn and I
need someone who wants to
play with me and has the time
to take me for walks or to the
dog park. We can even go to
the free SPCA Tampa Bay
obedience class that they will
receive when they adopt me.
That would be really fun be-
cause I really want to learn I
just need someone to help
show me what to do. I already
know how to sit and I am al-
ready partially housetrained,
so I am sure that I will be at
the top of the class! I know
my new family is out there -
they just haven't found me
yet. Please visit me at SPCA
Tampa Bay, 9099 130th Ave N
in Largo, or call 727-586-3591.

Cat of the Week

money towards a new com-
puter for college.
The teen has already been
accepted to MIT and The Cali-
fornia Institute of Technology,
and is waiting to hear back
from Harvard. Woodward is not
sure which school he will end
up at in the fall, but he does
know he would like to pursue a
double major in math and
physics.
As he prepares for next year,
the young scientist has been
taking some math courses in
the evenings at USF as well as
continuing his research in one


of the physics labs at the
Tampa campus. In 2009 the
teen was also named a semifi-
nalist in the Siemens Competi-
tion in Math, Science & Tech-
nology. His next step is to
enter his project in the Hills-
borough County Science Fair,
and one day he hopes to have
his research published in an ac-
ademic journal of science.
Woodward also has advice
for other budding scientists.
"Take a chance and enter
contests," he said. "You never
know what might happen."


Caesar is something spe-
cial. A really friendly orange
purr-ball, certainly. But that's
not why he is so unique. The
thing that sets him apart is
that he is a Manx. His breed
is quite rare and comes from
an island off the coast of Eng-
land. They are known for their
friendly personalities and the
fact that they are all born
without tails! So, if you want a
unique feline, you won't find
one more unusual than Cae-
sar. Visit Caesar at SPCA
Tampa Bay, 9099 130th Ave N
in Largo,727-586-3591.

Emergency Energy Assistance Available For Seniors


Pinellas County Health and Human Services De-
partment provides emergency energy assistance of
up to $600 to senior citizens unable to pay their
power bills.
Funds from the Area Agency on Aging of
Pasco/Pinellas Inc. can help residents 60 and older in
danger of having their power disconnected during the
designated cooling and heating seasons when de-
mand and bills are higher than normal. Eligible sen-
iors must have a crisis with a delinquent notice from
the utility company or a notice that power has been
shut off to be considered for help. They may also
qualify to receive repairs to a cooling unit or a
voucher for fans, heaters and blankets. Applications
are now being accepted.
Eligible seniors can receive help up to twice a
year during each high-demand season. Health and
Human Services staff members screen applicants to


Gulf grouper

sport season

closes Feb. 1


The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission advises an-
glers that regulations
prohibit the recreational
harvest of all shallow-
water groupers (gag,
black, red, yellowfin,
scamp, yellowmouth,
rock hind and red hind)
from Feb. 1 through
March 31 in all Gulf of
Mexico waters off
Florida, except in all wa-
ters of Monroe County.
Closing the recre-
ational harvest of all Gulf
shallow-water grouper
species for two months


each year during the
spawning season reduces
overfishing of Gulf gag
grouper. It does this by
limiting the unintended
catch and possible mor-
tality of gag grouper to
help it rebuild its popula-
tions and achieve larger
annual harvests in the fu-
ture for this important
species.
For more information
regarding grouper fishing
regulations, go to

water."

at the free throw line.
In 45 minutes against Providence,
Jones was two assists shy of a triple-
double, scoring 46, pulling down 10 re-
bounds and dishing eight assists. He
shot 65.2 percent from the field, hit-
ting 15-23 of his shots. He was 14-18 at
the line for a 77.8 percent clip. Jones hit
9-of-10 shots in the second half, with
his only miss being a three-point shot
with three minutes left to play in the
period.


Hnoto courtesy or uI-

four games his sophomore season and
now twice as a junior.
In his three-year career at USF

Week honors, four Rookie of the Week
awards and has been on the Weekly
Honor Roll three times. Jones is a two-

Rays and Upton face off in arbitration in February
BY: SARA PALMER -----_
PINELLAS NEWS


ST. PETERSBURG-
As Tampa Bay fans gear
up for another unpre-
dictable season, the
Rays' line-up faces un-
certainties as well.
As of the middle of
January, Upton and the
Rays had yet to come to a
long-term contractual
agreement about the cen-
ter fielder's future with the team. Since
a resolution has yet to be reached, the
homerun hitter, with 49 of those over-
the-wall balls to date, and the Rays will
go to arbitration next month. The hear-
ing will help settle Upton's 2010 salary
dispute, which could mean the differ-
ence between a $3 million and a $3.3
million dollar paycheck for this coming
season.
"While I can't claim to know too
much about the inner workings of the
Rays front office, the difference be-
tween what BJ's asking for and what
the Rays are offering seems petty. The
Rays have never lost an arbitration
hearing and I'm certain that streak will
continue this year based on BJ's num-
bers from last year," said Joshua
Lovelace, 26, an avid Rays fan and a St.
Petersburg resident.
In an interview with MLB.com, Up-
ton was quoted as saying that he loves
living in the Tampa Bay area and would
be very receptive to a long-term con-
tract with the Rays.
Lovelace and other fans would be
thrilled to see Upton stay connected to
the Rays for a long time.
"He plays stellar defense and covers
a lot of ground in Center Field,"
Lovelace said. "He has a sweet swing
and I'm hoping that this year we will
see that now that he's a bit more re-
moved from shoulder surgery."
Upton and Andrew Friedman, the ex-
ecutive vice president of baseball oper-
ations for the Rays, regret that the
salary negotiations have had to come
down to a hearing, but both men also

stated that this is strictly business and
both sides agree that the responsibility
is shared, according to an interview
with MLB.com.
Some fans were a little less than
thrilled with Upton's 2009 perform-
ance. The infamous base-stealer struck
out 152 times in 2009, 18 times more
than he had in the pervious year.
Upton also has fewer homeruns,
fewer Runs-batted-in and fewer stolen
bases in 2009 than in the season before,
according to statistics provided by
ESPN.
"I thought BJ had an off year last
season, but even with an off year he
made some spectacular plays on de-
fense and came through with some
clutch hits," Lovelace said.
Upton's batting average also went
down from .273 in 2008 to .241 in 2009.
The drop in statistics occurred after
Upton underwent shoulder surgery in
November 2008.
Even with the lower statistics many
of Upton's fans rally behind him and
are hopeful for a successful 2010 sea-
son, not only for the 25-year-old heavy
hitter, but the whole team as well.
"I'm looking forward to this season
for a number of reasons," Lovelace
said. "We have an exciting, young team.
I know this team will be right there in
the end and I'm looking forward to en-
joying the ride."
Tickets can now be purchased for
the Rays' spring training games, which
start with nine innings against the Ori-
oles on March 4.
