ST. PETERSBURG- The St. Peters-
burg Police Department and the St. Pe-
tersburg Rotary Club are pleased to an-
nounce the 2009 Recipients of the E. L.
Ned March/Bud Purdy Award.
Every year since 1952, this award
has been given to two outstanding
police officers for their exemplary
service to our Department and to
the community.
The recipients this year are Ser-
geant Gary L. Dukeman, Jr. and Offi-
cer Johnny E. Harris. Chief of Police
Charles "Chuck" Harmon presented
the awards at a luncheon held on Fri-
day, February 5, 2010 at 11:45 a.m. at
the Orange Blossom Cafeteria, 220
4th Street North.
Sergeant Gary L. Dukeman, Jr.
joined the St. Petersburg Police De-
partment as a twenty year old on May
15, 1989 and was promoted to Sergeant
on February 8,1999.
As a police officer, he served in Pa-
trol, the DUI Unit and as a Community
Police Officer. After his promotion to
Sergeant, he served in Patrol as a
Community Policing Sergeant and a
Field Training Sergeant before trans-
ferring to the Investigative Services
Bureau where he supervised detec-
tives in the Burglary Unit.
Under his supervision, the Burglary
Unit won the Department's "Unit of the
Year" award in 2006, because of the
high number of cases solved by his de-
tectives during that year.
In January, 2008, Sergeant Dukeman
was placed in charge of the Special
Events Unit, a challenging position
made more difficult by the unexpected
retirement of the person who previ-
ously held this position. He acclimated


TALLAHASSEE As part of the
Florida Dental Association's (FDA)
Project: Dentists Care (PDC) program,
FDA members will hold Give Kids a
Smile (GKAS) events throughout Chil-
dren's Dental Health Month in Febru-
ary. The Florida Dental Health Foun-
dation (FDHF) supports these events
that provide free dental care and infor-
mation to thousands of children.
"By providing basic, critical dental
services for underserved children,
we are trying to ensure a bright fu-
ture not only in oral health, but in
overall well-being," said FDA Presi-
dent Dr. Charles Hoffman.
GKAS is a national dental-access
program initiated in 2003 by the Amer-
ican Dental Association (ADA) to be
observed on the first Friday in Febru-
ary. The FDA's GKAS effort, an initia-
tive of the FDHF's PDC, concentrates
its GKAS events throughout February,
Children's Dental Health Month, but
also recognizes GKAS events through-
out the rest of the year.
The FDA is a Tallahassee-based,
statewide, professional association rep-
resenting member-dentists in Florida.
Founded in 1884 by 12 dentists, the


hnoto courtesy OT fS. hetersourg Police department
Sergeant Dukeman was awarded the 2009
E.L. Ned March/ Bud Purdy Award.


Officer Harris is a recipient of the 2009 E.L.
Ned March/ Bud Purdy Award

See AWARD PG 4


FDA now has almost 7,000 members,
representing about 70 percent of all
Florida-licensed dentists. A constituent
society of the ADA, the FDA's mission
is to improve the oral health of Florida
residents, promote ethical practice
standards, and direct the evolution of
the practice environment through con-
tinuous education and advocacy for the
profession and the public. PDC, an
FDHF charitable program, is a network
of dentists throughout Florida that pro-
vide dental care to patients who other-
wise could not afford it.

Two USF students embark on overseas

education with Gilman Scholarship


NEWS


PAGE


TAMPA- Once
dreamed-of overseas
adventures are now a
reality for two Univer-
sity of South Florida
students who recently
earned prestigious Gill-
man Scholarship
Awards. Japan and
Sweden were the coun-
tries they set their
sights on and they are
now enjoying experi-
ences of a lifetime.
Good advice and a
series of wise deci-
sions are landing
Shalonda Isom in Japan
for what may turn into
an extended stay if
things go according to
plan. This enthusias-
tic international busi-
ness major is using her
scholarship to spend a
semester in a country
she has grown to love.
"I'm excited,
scared, curious but
above all I'm grate-
ful for the opportu-
nity," said the 23-
year-old junior from
Atlanta, GA, who is
living in on-campus
housing at Kansai
Gaidai University.
Isom transferred to
USF from Valencia
Community College in
Orlando on the advice
of one of her profes-
sors. A friend, know-
ing of her interest in
business, suggested
international business,
an idea she clicked
with immediately -
USF's program suited
her plans because it
required either an in-
ternship or a semester
abroad. That sealed it,
but there was another
decision to make.
"One of the require-
ments of the program
is to specialize in a
country and I thought
about what would
most benefit me,
based on my future
plans. I came up with
China, Japan and Ko-
rea," Isom said.


Japan won out be-
cause she loves sushi
and admires what she
observed of Japanese
culture. There was
only the question of
learning the language.
Having already stud-
ied French and Span-
ish, she expected
Japanese to be a lot
more difficult than it
turned out to be.
"I loved my profes-
sors in the program,
they were awesome.
They made the experi-
ence of learning so
much better for us. I
love learning about dif-
ferent cultures and
they involved us in ac-
tual tea ceremonies
and research projects,
so learning Japanese
was a lot easier than I
thought it would be."
Despite facing
weekly quizzes and
never having applied
for anything quite like
this, she filled out the
application and was
pleasantly surprised to
find herself with the
prestigious scholar-
ship for underrepre-
sented students.
Isom is looking for-
ward to spending a
few years working in
Japan with an eye to-
wards paying off her
student loans and
steeping herself in


Japan's culture, be-
cause her future plans
involve opening a
restaurant and some-
where down the road,
a hotel of her own.
The other fortu-
nate Gillman Schol-
arship recipient from
USF is Danya Loutfi,
also 23, and an inter-
national studies ma-
jor from Ocala.
Needing courses to-
wards completing her
major in English, her
choices were limited
to England, Denmark
and Sweden.
"I chose Sweden
because of their repu-
tation as a very pro-
gressive state in
terms of environment
and human rights,
etc.," Loutfi said.
"Also I felt that cultur-
ally they were less
like the U.S. than Eng-
land. It seemed like
the more charming,
interesting option."
While she can get
by with English,
Loutfi plans to learn
some Swedish and
learn more about
Swiss culture. When
she returns to the
U.S., she plans to fin-
ish work on her bach-
elor's degree and go
on to medical school.
It helped Loutfi to
have supportive


family and friends
before and during
this experience.
"My family was
very encouraging.
My friends were re-
ally excited for me
and supportive," she
said. "But I don't
think any of us could
really imagine that
it was actually going
to happen."
She's in Sweden
right now and very
happy to be there, but
she still pinches herself.
"Honestly, the
whole while that I
was preparing to
study abroad it did-
n't seem like a real-
ity; and now when I
reflect on where I
am I'm still in a
state of disbelief.
I'm pretty thrilled
that I was given this
opportunity and
took it up."
Isom agrees and
has adopted a new
philosophy now that
one particular dream
has come true.
"I am overjoyed
and excited about the
things to come in my
future," she said. "I
am extremely appre-
ciative and by achiev-
ing this major goal in
my life I feel as
though no obstacle
can stand in my way."


TAMPA During a visit to the
Florida State Fair, Governor Char-
lie Crist today emphasized his
commitment to growing Florida's
economy through job retention
and creation, workforce training,
and economic development. The
Governor applauded the Florida
State Fair for its economic impact
and praised efforts to strengthen
Florida's economy through re-
cruiting and retaining innovation
industries and jobs. Earlier today,
Governor Crist visited Tampa
Bay Tech High School to observe
the school's focus on preparing
students for career paths in
Florida's innovation economy.
"We are focused on diversifying
our economy beyond housing, agri-
culture, and tourism, which are all
crucial industries, but have recently
seen unprecedented challenges,"
Governor Crist said. 'We must con-
tinue to work to retain and attract
new industries that provide jobs and
economic development, and Florida
schools have a key role in equipping
our students with the knowledge
and skills needed to tackle 21st cen-
tury jobs in a knowledge-based, in-
novation economy."
A 2006 economic impact
study conducted by the Univer-


sity of South Florida Center for
Economic Development found
that the Florida State Fair Au-
thority creates 1,267 jobs
statewide and has an economic
impact of $171.4 million in sales
and over $43.3 million in wages.
Organized under the leadership
of Florida Agriculture Commis-
sioner Charles H. Bronson, the
2010 Florida State Fair opened
Thursday, February 4, and runs
through Monday, February 15.
Tampa Bay Technical High
School works to assure top quality
technical and educational opportu-
nities exist for all students. With
programs in commercial arts, health
professions, alternative energy and
green construction, the school uses
a cooperative team approach to pro-
vide a nurturing environment to as-
sure student success.
Governor Crist recently an-
nounced his $307.5-million eco-
nomic-incentive budget proposal for
Fiscal Year 2010-11. The Gover-
nor's recommended budget will in-
crease Florida's competitiveness in
key business sectors, including in-
formation technology, aviation and
aerospace, defense, biotechnology,
tourism, sports, and film and enter-
tainment through the Governor's


Office of Tourism, Trade and Eco-
nomic Development (OTTED).
The Governor's proposed budget
also includes $100 million in tax re-
lief through a one-percent reduc-
tion in the corporate income tax rate
on the first $1 million of a corpora-
tion's taxable income and a 10-day
Back to School Sales Tax Holiday.
Governor Crist recently called
for a formal partnership among state
education and workforce develop-
ment leaders and Florida's business
sector to develop a strategic plan to
ensure Florida's workforce is
trained to meet the demands of a
global, knowledge-based economy.
Known as Florida's Talent Supply
Chain, the partners will work to en-
sure students can access educa-
tional opportunities and gain skills
that will increase Florida's economic
competitiveness. To achieve this
goal, the Governor's proposed $7.1
billion higher-education budget in-
cludes a $100-million increase to
state universities to build research
and education capacity in science,
technology, engineering, math, and
medicine (STEMM). The Gover-
nor also announced a $67-million
increase for Florida's 28 commu-
nity colleges to meet rising enroll-
ment without increasing tuition.

There is no average day for a U.S. sol-

smiling faces, easy-going patrols and
light work. Another day could be met
with explosions and injuries. For Spc.

"I had just gotten here, about a

tistry in the dark."
Shipley comes from a long line of mili-
tary women. Both of her great aunts
served in the armed forces. Their names
are even on a plaque at the Women In Mil-
itary Service For America Memorial in
Washington, DC. Shipley's grandmother
was a marine.
In high school, Shipley was accepted
into the Drill Team, a high school JROTC
program, as a freshman, which was un-
heard of at the time.
"I made it kind of my goal to make it on
the drill team as a freshman," she said.
Her experience on the drill team, com-
bined with her family's history of military
services helped to shape Shipley's path for
her future.
"My love for the army and military
grew from there," she said. "I love every-
thing the military stands for."
Shipley's unit has split up to take over
all of the military dental clinics in Iraq. She
has seen an array of injuries, some from
combat and some just from everyday life.
"We see a lot of patients with trauma
under their chins," Shipley said. This
commonly occurs when an explosion or a
protrusion in the road causes a soldier to
make an unexpected sharp jerk, often
causing a collision with the weapon and
his or her chin.
However, play can sometimes be rough,
too. Shipley has assisted on a case where

More than 70 models from the commu-

included Festival directors, Associate Di-
rectors and their families, former Florida
Strawberry Festival Queens, the 2009
Festival Queen, 2010 Jr. Royalty and many

some of a soldier's teeth were accidentally
knocked out during a game of flag football.
Most the equipment Shipley and her
team need in order to provide adequate
dental care is readily available. However,
she said that they often run out of sup-
plies.
"If we need to order stuff, it takes for-
ever," Shipley said.
Shipley is tentatively set to return to
Florida in June 2010; however, she has no
plans to pursue civilian dentistry.
"I plan on staying in the army until I re-
tire," she said.
Shipley's days and nights are focused
on her work, but that does not mean she
is void of any free time or fun. She often
attends the base's poetry night and hip-
hop night. While in uniform the soldiers

Bay Pines VA Medical
Center breaks ground
on new eye treatment
and ambulatory
surgery center
BAY PINES- The Bay Pines VA Med-
ical Center has broken ground on a proj-
ect that will enhance care for area veter-
ans. The VA Medical Center is
constructing a 2-story building that will
house a new Eye Treatment Center on
the first floor and an Ambulatory Surgery
Center on the second floor.
The new building is being constructed
by Stryker Construction Services, LLC
has an estimated cost of $8.4 million. Ex-
pected to open in 2011, the building is
planned for almost 30,000 square feet.
The Eye Treatment Center, will offer a
variety of diagnostic, examination, and
treatment services for numerous eye con-
ditions such as specialized low vision,
cataracts, glaucoma and medical retina
conditions (including diabetes and macular
degeneration), as well as eye problems
related to traumatic brain injury. Many of
these services are currently offered at Bay
Pines but the new Center will provide ad-
ditional capacity to treat the growing num-
ber of veterans with eye related diseases.
Moving the Eye Center to the new build-
ing will also allow for expansion of other
departments. The Eye Treatment Center
will employ over 15 staff.
The Ambulatory Surgery Center will
be a complete day-surgery center where
patients report for their procedures in the
morning, have their surgery, recuperate,
and depart from the Center. There will be
4 Smart OR operating rooms, which use
an integrated system of digital equipment
for minimally invasive surgeries, as well
as multiple recovery rooms. The Center
will perform surgeries like: cataract sur-
gery, arthroscopies, biopsies, excisions,
and most ENT and plastic surgery proce-
dures where the patient would be going
home the same day. These services are
currently offered at Bay Pines; however
they are not performed in a single loca-
tion. The new Center allows all of the
services to be provided in one location
which enhances patient safety and con-
venience, increases OR efficiency, and
will free up the current operating rooms
to be used for patients who need to be ad-
mitted to the hospital. The new Center
will employ a variety of healthcare pro-
fessionals such as surgeons, anesthesiol-
ogists, certified nurse anesthetists,
nurses, and technicians.
According to Dr. Terry Wright, Chief of
Surgery, "The new Eye Treatment and
Ambulatory Surgery Center will provide
added convenience and will greatly en-
hance care for our Veterans. Having state-
of-the-art equipment in a new building
specifically designed for these types of
services enhances patient safety, in-
creases efficiencies, and allows VA Staff to
provide the best quality care available."

Chase is a super sweet boy
that is very affectionate. He's
a large dog but he already
walks well on a leash. He has
beautiful tan and white mark-
ings. Chase's eyes are a dark
chocolate brown that stare at
you so lovingly. This boy
knows the basic commands
and he is very smart. Chase
does jump up on people, when
he gets excited, so he would
do best in a home with chil-
dren over the age of 10. He is
still working on his manners
and is learning quickly. He en-
joys playing and romping
around in the yard with the
other dog residents at the
SPCA. Chase loves his treats
and will sit pretty for them!!

Charlie is a big and beauti-
ful guy with a grey and white
coat which has a raccoon pat-
tern tail. He's pretty quiet,
calm & unassuming, but don't
imagine he's aloof or stand-
offish. After he took a curious
circuit around the room, he
confidently climbed into my
lap and nuzzled into my arm
and tried to go to sleep. He's a
delight and you will adore him.

sonal life.

served as the depart-
ments liaison with the

and has coordinated our

with their Annual Crime
Prevention Run and Fes-
tival in the Park.
Officer Harris brings a
"can do" attitude to all of
his assignments and is
well known and re-
spected in the depart-
ment and the community.
Officer Johnny Harris
is a consummate profes-
sional with a distin-
guished career and he is
most deserving of this
prestigious award.

USF Women's Bulls upset at RIl t IP e tI hr %rk

Marquette with second straight loss N .... .


The University of
South Florida
women's basketball
team kicked off one of
its toughest stretches
of the season tonight
as Marquette handed
USF a 63-50 loss in
front of 1,014 fans on
a snowy night at the
Al McGuire Center.
The loss, the Bulls'
second straight,
drops USF to 13-10
overall and 4-6 in
conference play.
USF who kicked
off the first of three
straight road games
against the Golden Ea-
gles, placed three play- Jessca
ers in double figures led by Jessica Lawson's
game-highl7 points. Joining Lawson in double
digits was Sequoyah Griffin with 12 points and
Janae Stokes with 10 points.
In addition to Lawson's 17 points, she also
pulled down a game high 12 rebounds for her
BIG EAST leading 13th double-double of the
season, and the 23rd of her career.
Both teams started off the first half as cold as
it was outside the Al McGuire Center with nei-
ther team shooting better than 29 percent from
the field in the first 20 minutes.
The Bulls jumped out to a 5-0 lead on a
jumper by Janae Stokes with 17:36 left in the
half, only to have the Golden Eagles use a 7-2
run, capped off by a Courtney Weibel three-
point shot, to tie the game at seven-all.
USF would push its lead back to five
points, 12-7, when Melissa Dalembert tipped
in her own missed shot with 12:35 left be-
fore the intermission.
Angel Robinson would tie the game for
the third time in the first stanza, 19-19, on a
jumper with 6:03 remaining, and then, fol-
lowing a Jessica Lawson turnover, Jessica
Pachko would give the Golden Eagles their
first lead of the game, 21-19, on a lay-up
with 5:27 left in the half.
Aside from the Bulls evening the game up at
21-21 on a driving lay-up by Leondra Doomes-
Stephens with 3:13 left, Marquette would keep
the advantage the rest of the way entering the
locker with a 26-21 lead.
The Golden Eagles would shoot 29 percent

first stanza.
In the second half, both teams would come
out shooting considerably better from the floor,
with Marquette hitting for 57.1 percent (4-7)
from the field and the Bulls 50 percent (4-8) in
the first 4:30 of the second stanza.
Marquette would keep up the intensity be-
hind Robinson who would score six of the
Golden Eagles' first 10 points, however the
Bulls' Sequoyah Griffin would keep USF close
with eight of its first 10 points.
Both teams would go back and forth during
the second half with the Golden Eagles trying
to pull away but couldn't.
The Bulls would cut the Marquette lead to
three points, 34-31, on a jumper by Stokes with
15:56 left.
Marquette would finally widen the mar-
gin pushing it to what would be, at that
point, a game-high 10 points, 48-38, on the
second of two free throws by Jessica Pachko
with 9:06 left.
USF would close the margin to five points

second of a two shot free throw with 7:32
left, however could not get any closer the
rest of the way.
The Bulls finished the game shooting 33.3
percent (19-57) from the field while the Golden
Eagles shot 35.7 percent (19-57) from the floor.

will head directly New Jersey to face Seton Hall
on Feb. 13 at 2 p.m. The Bulls will close out
their three-game road stretch at Georgetown on
Feb. 17 at 8 p.m.
