There was an obvious
schism between citizens who
want The Pier to stay as is,
an icon needing only renova-
tions to the inverted pyramid
and the approach, and resi-
dents looking for St. Peters-
burg's waterfront to be de-
fined by innovation and
forward-thinking. Many of
The Pier's business own-
ers, whose livelihoods
come from the landmark,
advocate the salvation of
the current inverted pyra-
mid.
"You will loose the wow ef-
fect," said Nic Weathersbee,
owner of the St. Petersburg
Candle Gallery on the first
floor of The Pier. Weathers-
bee, along with about six
other pier business owners
who spoke at this final public
forum, believe that keeping
the existing structure and
widening the approach is the
most effect way to renovate
The Pier while maintaining
the iconic draw of the in-
verted pyramid.
While many applauded
these pleas, others did not.
"Frankly," said attendee Pete
Brown, "I think the inverted
pyramid is kind of goofy."


Brown was not alone in his
distaste for the style of the
current structure.
"That protuberance into
the bay reminds me of
some architect's idea of
erectile dysfunction," Eu-
gene Johnston said.
Some at the meeting
agreed with Brown. Many of
the citizens were concerned
that the walking distance be-
tween the mainland and The
Pier is too far.
"As I see it right now,"
St. Petersburg resident
Alex Size said, "The Pier is
a remote spot." Other peo-
ple at the forum mentioned
that they rarely go to The
Pier because they do not


want to walk the 3,300 ft.
long approach.
"These lazy 30-year-olds
will look like blimps by the
time they are my age," said
Pam Cichon, who spoke out
at the forum for preserving
the current pier.
One person asked sar-
castically if they should
move the Washington
Monument closer to the
White House so that
tourists do not have to
walk as far.
Others suggested having
stores and activities, with
air conditioning, on the ap-
proach to eliminate the is-
sues with having to walk

Residents of Pinellas County,
from Clearwater Beach down to
Fort Desoto, stood at the shores
of the Gulf of Mexico and locked
hands to stand against off-shore
drilling on Saturday, Feb. 13.
The event, "Hands Across
the Sands," is the brainchild of
Dave Rauschkolb from Seaside,
FL. A few months after its in-
ception, concerned Pinellas
County residents and members
of the Sierra Club decided to
join hands with the rest of
Florida to show the world, and
the government, that Floridians
are against off-shore drilling in
the Gulf of Mexico.
"People don't want oil drilling
on our beaches," said Cathy
Harrelson, an organizer for the
event. "They don't want oil
rolling up on our beach. They
don't want marine life to die...
You don't need a spill to have
damaging effects."
According to Harrelson, be-
tween 2,500 and 3,000 people
attended the event.


"It was an amazing spectrum of
people who came out to say 'We
don't want you drilling,"she said.
Talk of drilling in the Gulf off
the shore of Florida has been
bouncing around the legislature
and the media for years. The de-
bate will soon continue in both
the U.S. Senate and the Florida
State Legislature to determine if
Florida is going to allow oil
drilling off its shore.
The Hands event was also a
way for residents to point out
that the government could be
spending its time created new
energy sources, instead of rely-
ing on oil wells, which could one
day run dry.
"We have to now get very se-
rious about [energy] alterna-
tives," Harrelson said.
The organizers and partici-
pants of Hands believe that the
pollution from oil drilling is a con-
stant threat to Florida's ecology.
They believe that oil drilling will
also run off tourists, who are com-
ing to visit the state's award win-
ning beaches, not oil rigs pumping
out in the Gulf.


Judge E. J. Salcines to receive

Stetson Law's Tower Award


GULFPORT Judge E. J.
Salcines has been selected to
receive Stetson University Col-
lege of Law's Tower Award on
May 1 at TPepin's Hospitality
Centre in Tampa.
Judge Salcines will be pre-
sented the award during Stet-
son's Second Annual Scholar-
ship Gala, which raises funds
for law student scholarships.
This year's gala co-chairs are
Stetson Law alumni Meredith
Phipps Nutter '04 and Rick
Nutter '03.
A Tampa native, Judge Sal-
cines was appointed to Florida's
Second District Court of Appeal
in 1998, where he served for a
decade. Judge Salcines' legal ca-
reer spans work as an attorney,
federal and state prosecutor, as-
sistant U.S. attorney and judge.
He received a J.D. degree from
South Texas College of Law, as
well as Honorary Doctors of
Law Degrees from Stetson Uni-


versity College of Law and
Florida Southern College. Judge
Salcines has received numer-
ous honors from civic groups
and bar organizations for spear-
heading outstanding legal com-
munity service programs. He
was awarded the University of
South Florida's President's Dis-
tinguished Citizen Award in
1993 and Distinguished Serv-
ice Award in 1996. The City of
Tampa recognized him as His-
panic Man of the Year in 1993.
Born to immigrants of Spain,
Judge Salcines became the first
Spanish-speaking assistant U.S.
attorney in 1964.
Judge Salcines was
knighted by King Juan Car-
los of Spain, who inducted
him into the Royal Order of
Queen Isabella in 1979.

COUNTRYWIDE CHECKS TO GO OUT TO MORE THAN 2,700 FLORIDA HOMEOWNERS


TALLAHASSEE Attorney Gen-
eral Bill McCollum today announced
that more than 2,700 people will re-
ceive checks from a 2008 settle-
ment his office obtained with Coun-
trywide Financial Corporation. As
part of the settlement, Countrywide
is offering foreclosure relief pay-
ments to eligible borrowers who re-
turned valid and timely Claim Forms
and Releases under a program ad-
ministered by the Countrywide set-
tlement administrator. More than
$16.9 million will be distributed this
week, and each check will be writ-
ten for just over $6,000.
"These checks will make a signif-
icant difference for Floridians who
are trying to save their homes," said
Attorney General McCollum. "This
will provide real relief to struggling
homeowners and families."
In July 2008, the Attorney Gen-
eral filed a lawsuit against Coun-


trywide, one of the nation's largest
mortgage companies, for allegedly
engaging in deceptive and unfair
trade practices. The Attorney Gen-
eral's lawsuit claimed Countrywide
put borrowers into mortgages they
couldn't afford or loans with rates
and penalties that were misleading.
That lawsuit was resolved in Octo-
ber 2008, and the settlement agree-
ment included a foreclosure relief
payment program for Florida home-
owners with qualifying Country-
wide mortgages.
Check recipients must take note
of important information about their
relief payment. First, the checks
must be cashed on or before May 13,
2010. The payment under this set-
tlement may be taxable, and recipi-
ents should consult a tax advisor if
they have any questions concerning
their possible tax liabilities as a re-
sult of this payment.


Recipients with any questions
about their checks or other matters
relating to the settlement should
contact the settlement administra-
tor, Rust Consulting, toll free at 1-
866-411-6987, or visit
http://www.countrywidesettle-
mentinfo.com.
Under the settlement, the Attor-
ney General also obtained $4 million
to fund foreclosure defense assis-
tance program. The money will be
provided to organizations over the
course of two years, and the first
funds were distributed in late 2009.
The organizations that receive the
grants agree to provide free legal as-
sistance to eligible homeowners who
face foreclosure but cannot afford an
attorney to review their case.
"These resources, both the checks
to homeowners and the grants to fund
pro bono foreclosure defense assis-
tance, are substantial assets to Florid-


ians," said Heather Rodriguez of Hol-
land & Knight law firm and president
of the Legal Aid Society of the Orange
County Bar Association, one of the or-
ganizations that received grant funding
and has an attorney dedicated to fore-
closure defense assistance. "Orange
and Osceola Counties are both high in
foreclosures, and homeowners are
struggling. We appreciate the Attor-
ney General's commitment to assist
our residents."
Countrywide Chief Executive An-
gelo Mozilo was also named in the
Countrywide lawsuit and the civil
case against him is still pending in
Broward County Circuit Court. The
Attorney General has also called on
Bank of America, the company that
acquired Countrywide after the law-
suit had been filed, to be more re-
sponsive to consumers who are try-
ing to modify their loans and save
their homes from foreclosure.

Inaugural Marc L. Levine

Award presented at May

Stetson Law graduation


NEWS


PAGE


GULFPORT- In
May, the first Marc L.
Levine Award will be
presented to a Stetson
University College of
Law student who has
demonstrated signifi-
cant professional
growth and leadership
during his or her time
at Stetson.
The award was es-
tablished by Marc's
parents, Dr. and Mrs.
Paul A. Levine, to
honor a graduating stu-
dent who, like Marc,
emerged as a campus
leader at Stetson.
"I am deeply hon-
ored that my parents
decided to create an
award in my name at
Stetson Law," said
Levine, the award's
namesake. "However,
I believe that the
award is more of an
acknowledgement of
the amazing experi-
ence and education
that Stetson Law pro-
vides its students than
of my individual ac-
complishments while
in law school."

petunias help regulate
the amount of the 13
major aromatic com-
pounds in that flower's
fragrance.
The work will help
researchers control
the levels of these
compounds, adjusting
a flower's fragrance
while also producing
more or less of it.
In the papers, the
researchers also de-
scribe some of the
more fundamental as-
pects of how flowers
produce scent. For ex-
ample, they observed
that the scents are
largely manufactured in
the petunia flower's
petals, and that scent
production is activated
when the flower opens.
The studies are part
of an ongoing effort to
isolate the chain reac-
tion responsible for
producing scent, so
that fragrances can be
modified without in-
terfering with other
flower qualities, said
Thomas Colquhoun, a
UF environmental hor-
ticulture researcher
and first author on
both papers.
For more than a
decade, Clark and his
colleagues have combed
through more than
8,000 petunia genes.
The search has
yielded some inter-
esting finds.
For example, the
gene that produces the
compound that gives
rose oil its distinctive
scent also makes
tomatoes taste good.
By manipulating
this gene, UF re-
searchers led by hor-
ticulture professor
Harry Klee have been
able to create toma-
toes with more flavor.
Klee, Clark and col-
leagues are now work-
ing with plant breeders
and taste specialists to
prepare the tomato for
the marketplace. Bet-
ter smelling roses are
also in the pipeline.


Robinson PA., gradu-
ated cum laude in 2006
from Stetson Law; he
received the Walter
Mann Award for pro-
fessional leadership
and the William E
Blews Pro Bono
Award for community
service. While a stu-
dent, he interned for
Judge Elizabeth A. Ko-

As Rosa Hernandez
watched her daughter
being honored by the
University of South
Florida and Air Force
ROTC (AFROTC) of-
ficials in front of
48,000 fans at a USF
home football game
her eyes welled up and
the tears overflowed.
"When I brought
her and her brother to
the United States, all I
wanted was for them
to have a chance to do
great things," Her-
nandez said.
Her daughter is
Estefania Buritica, a
first year cadet in
the AFROTC pro-
gram at the Univer-
sity of South Florida.
The award Cadet Bu-
ritica received is the
AFROTC Silver
Valor Award, the
second highest
award an AFROTC
cadet can receive.
When she is not
going to class or par-
ticipating in ROTC
activities, Estefania
Buritica drives a stu-
dent shuttle bus
around the USF cam-
pus. She received
her award for actions
taken one afternoon
in the fall term while
driving the shuttle.
That afternoon the
university had re-
ceived an on-campus
security threat. Cadet
Buritica was perform-
ing duties as a driver
on one of the campus
shuttle buses and fol-
lowed established pro-
cedures for such a sit-
uation. As events
unfolded, Cadet Burit-
ica became aware that
her shuttle had drawn
the attention of secu-
rity personnel.
Throughout the un-
folding of events Cadet
Buritica maintained
communications with
the appropriate au-
thorities. Her calm
and controlled disposi-
tion kept the passen-
gers calm and aided
the police in success-
ful resolution of a po-
WMM IMf


tentially catastrophic
event, earning acco-
lades from her super-
visory chain up to and
including the univer-
sity president.
The AFROTC Valor
Award recognizes
cadets who distin-
guished themselves
through voluntary acts
of heroism. This does
not necessarily need to
be in connection with
an AFROTC event. A
Gold Valor Award
would involve conspic-
uous risk of life while
the Silver Valor Award
is earned for voluntary
acts of heroism that do
not meet the risk-of-
life standard.
Cadet Buritica was
nominated for the
award by her
AFROTC Detachment
Commander, Colonel
Robert G. Wright, Jr.,
in acknowledgement
of Buritica's living out
the Air Force's core
values of integrity,
service and excel-
lence. In his nomina-
tion letter, Col Wright
stated "Cadet Burit-
ica's valorous actions
to safeguard her pas-
sengers most cer-
tainly embody service
before self, and by all
accounts she exe-
cuted her responsibil-
ities with excellence
and flair."
"My actions were
instinctive," said
Cadet Buritica. "I
knew I needed to pro-
tect the lives of my
passengers and make
sure I aided the offi-
cers. The drivers are
trained for situations
like this and AFROTC
training teaches disci-
pline, thinking and
maintaining compo-
sure. I just let the
training take over.
Overall, I'm just
thankful the situation
was quickly resolved
and no one was hurt."
Buritica's mother's
dream has come true;
she is doing great
things and better yet,
being recognized for it.


UF/IFAS

GAINESVILLE -
Shakespeare famously
wrote, "That which we
call a rose by any other
name would smell as
sweet." With all due
respect to the Bard,
University of Florida
researchers may have
to disagree: No matter
what you call a flower,
its scent can be
changed. A team at
UF's Institute of Food
and Agricultural Sci-
ences has uncovered
some of the genes that
control the complex
mixture of chemicals
that comprise a
flower's scent, open-
ing new ways of "turn-
ing up" and "tuning" a
flower's aromatic com-
pounds to produce de-
sired fragrances.
"For a long time,
breeders have mostly
focused on how flowers
look, their size, color
and how long blooms
last," said David Clark,
a professor of environ-
mental horticulture.
"But scent has gotten
left behind. Go to a
florist and try to smell
the flowers. You proba-
bly won't get what you
expect."
Over the years,
Clark says, breeders
have selected flower-
ing plants that produce
bigger, more attractive
flowers with long vase
lives; but in doing so,
they may have been
inadvertently selecting
plants that were will-
ing to devote less to
producing fragrance.
That may change. For
example, a customer
may someday be able to
walk into a florist and se-
lect from scented or un-
scented varieties of the
same flower.
In work published
in the January issue of
The Plant Journal and
the February issue of
Phytochemistry, the
researchers describe
how various genes in

examines genetically manipulated roses.
"The taste of food, ing how plants interact

these are things that en- ronment brings us closer
rich our lives in ways we to truly appreciating
don't fully understand what the natural world
yet," Clark said. "Learn- has to offer."

PINELLAS COUNTY- Two
Pinellas County non-profit an-
imal organizations, SPCA of
Tampa Bay and the Suncoast
Animal League, will be host-
ing pup-centered events that
will be just as entertaining for
two-legged guests as well.
SPCA of Tampa Bay is
holding its inaugural Tampa
Bay 2010 Dog Games on Sat-
urday, Feb. 20 from 11:00 a.m.
at its location in Largo, 9099
130th Ave. N. The games will
consist of four categories
where participants can vie for
a bronze, silver and gold
metal.
In a race against the clock
and each other, owners can
steer their dogs through an
_2*790MWm


obstacle course in the Ama-
teur Agility contest. These
contestants will be judged on
speed and accuracy.
The Flyball competition is a
canine relay race. Each team
will consist of four dogs who
must charge through an obsta-
cle course and leap over hur-
dles in order to catch a ball.
In the Canine Freestyle event,
owners and dogs can cha-cha
their way to first place. Each cou-
ple, consisting of a dog and a per-
son, will dance to a set of choreo-
graphed steps.
The final competition held
at the Tampa Bay 2010 Dog
Games is the Canine Good Cit-
izen tournament. This contest
was designed for pit bull or pit
bull mixed breeds, but is open
to all dogs. If the pooch passes

This is the not so little -
Little Man. This handsome
guy came to the SPCA Tampa
Bay because his previous fam-
ily was going to have a baby

with Little Man that he de-
served. This boy doesn't mind
being brushed and does let his
family members clip his claws.
Though not too sure about
dogs, Little Man has enjoyed
the company of another cat.
Slow to warm up, the shy side
of Little Man becomes trust-
ing with his special someone
once he knows them. De-
scribed as friendly and loving,
Little Man does enjoy sitting
on laps on occasion for extra
loving' and attention. Looking
for a good-looking man, please

ST. PETERSBURG- Feb-
ruary 15, 2010 The Florida
Orchestra (TFO) announced
the programming today for its
2010/11 Masterworks season
under the leadership of Music
Director Stefan Sanderling.
Commenting on the season,
Sanderling said, "I want both
the audience and the orches-
tra to have a remarkable ex-
perience in the concert hall. I
want it to be a journey of dis-
covery for everyone, whether
it is finding something new in
a familiar piece by Beethoven
or exploring a newer work for
the first time. That is why I
have included some less fa-
miliar works this season. This
music can be filled with new
experiences and some won-
derful surprises for all of us."
Board Chairman Howard
Jenkins said, "The Florida
Orchestra is fortunate to have
someone of Music Director
Stefan Sanderling's talent, vi-
sion and artistic stature set-
ting the standard of excel-
lence for our orchestra and
providing a series of truly
moving experiences for our
audience members. Our mu-
sicians are especially privi-
leged to benefit from his mu-
sical insights and his
ever-encouraging approach
for them to strive to greater


CLEARWATER- Champi-
oned by community leaders
and endorsed by sports celebri-
ties who have a desire to give
back, Clearwater for Youth has
been able to support youth ath-
letic programs through gener-
ous donations, raising 1.2 mil-
lion dollars last year even in a
down economy.
For over 35 years, Clearwa-
ter for Youth (CFY) has been
supported and endorsed by
many community leaders and
sports celebrities. Names like
Joe DiMaggio, Mike Alstott,
Tom Lasorda and Jimmy
Rollins to name just a few.
Each year, Dick Crippen em-
cees their Celebrity Banquet
that raises funds to continue
the youth sports programs
CFY supports. Even in the
down economy, CFY raised 1.2
million dollars in 2009.
Richard 0. "Dick" Jacobson
gifted a $700,000 endowment
to CFY at last February's
Celebrity Banquet. The


heights and stretch their abil-
ities. Next season promises
to be the most extraordinary
one the orchestra has pre-
sented during my entire as-


sociation with the organiza-
tion. Our season includes
Beethoven's Symphony No.
9, Haydn's The Creation,
Gershwin's Piano Concerto in
F, Mozart's Eine Kleine
Nachtmusik, Mahler's Sym-
phony No. 6, Bruckner's
Symphony No. 4, Respighi's


founder of Jacob-
son Companies,
one of the largest
privately owned
warehouse compa-
nies in the nation,
has contributed
more than $40 mil-
lion to others
through his Foun-
dation over the last
3 decades. That
endowment was
met with another
$150,000 gift from Dick(
Warren and Nancy
Hughes and by the
year's end CFY had raised
nearly 1.2 million dollars to
help their cause.
The needed donations
helps CFY continue to annu-
ally provide hundreds of
scholarships, travel grants and
equipment funding to boys
and girls in football, cheer-
leading, track & field, basket-
ball, swimming and volleyball
in the Clearwater region.


Pines of Rome and violin con-
certos by both Tchaikovsky
and Brahms, all of which are
sure to speak to our broad
and diverse audience."


Jenkins added, "We are
also very aware of the chal-
lenging times that surround
us, and are committed to
maintaining an affordable ex-
perience for our entire com-
munity. This is one way we
can best serve the Tampa Bay
area. Because of this com-


mitment, we are pledging to
not raise our ticket prices.
They will remain the same as
this season's prices."
With concerts in Tampa,
St. Petersburg and Clear-
water, the Masterworks se-
ries is available in packages
of 14, 10, 7 and 5 concerts
with prices remaining the
same as for the current sea-
son. Series packages start
as low as $90 for the 5-con-
cert Discovery series.
Among the various sub-
scriber benefits are savings
off the single-ticket cost of
the series, free flexible
ticket exchanges and a free
friend voucher to invite a
guest to one of a selection
of concerts.
All Masterworks sub-
scribers receive a discount
off of the single-ticket cost
of their series; however,
those who choose the 14-
concert Imperial series en-
joy the largest savings of
20% as well as a waiver of
their facility fees, which is
an additional savings of $28
per series seat.
For information on the
2010/2011 season, call the TFO
ticket center at 727.892.3337 or
1.800.662.7286 Monday through
Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. or Satur-
day and Sunday, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.


Crippen, Dick Jacobson and former mayor of Clearwater Brian August stand a
check for $700,000 from the Jacobson Foundation.


CFY's 37th Annual
Celebrity Banquet will be
held at the Sheraton Sand
Key on Saturday, February 27,
2010. One guest of honor will
be Angelo Dundee, another
Jamie Moyer. Tickets at $200
apiece and tables at $1500 are
still available.
"If you ask those that have
helped CFY, you'll find a com-
mon thread," says Brian


Aungst, Chairman of CFY's
Board of Trustees and former
Mayor of Clearwater. That
common thread as Aungst says
is to help kids through the ve-
hicle of sports; teaching confi-
dence, teamwork and a sense
of responsibility.

the corner with 6:20 remain-
ing in the half to give the s

cylinders, and got a jumper
from freshman Toarlyn Fitz-
patrick to begin the scoring
in the second period.

on the offensive end and
dished to Howard, who
skipped it to Gilchrist who
knocked down a three and put
the Bulls up, 29-23.

which led to a layup, and was
part of a 9-0 USF run to open
the second half.

big dunk to put USF up 38-27
with 11:54 remaining, part of
