The paper you have in your hands is

The why is rather basic. Our expenses
are more than our revenue. Though
small buisness has its up and downs,
this time the losses started back last

do we anticipate one in the near future.
We are not the first newspaper to close

one staffer as an "April Fool's prank"

as presented.
Three lawsuits later, I realized life

USF to host Gen. Petraeus

and other leading thinkers

on Afghanistan and Pakistan


TAMPA, Fla. The University of
South Florida will host more than two
dozen of the world's leading authori-
ties on Afghanistan and Pakistan for
three days of discussions on the chal-
lenges and opportunities in one of the
world's most volatile and important re-
gions, Wednesday through Friday,
March 24-26.
The event will include an hour-
long conversation with U.S. CENT-
COM Commander Gen. David H. Pe-
traeus at 2:30 p.m. on Friday, March
26, in the Oval Theater of the Mar-
shall Student Center.
The general's talk, as well as other con-
ference discussions, are free and open to
the public, but seating is limited. Those in-
terested in attending are asked to RSVP at
RSVP-GenP@usf.edu.
"The importance of Afghanistan
and Pakistan to American national se-
curity is irrefutably profound," said
conference co-organizer Mohsen Mi-
lani, chair of USF's Department of
FWC Lieutenant
Bingham honored

for marine

conservation work
He would humbly tell you he was
just doing his job. But the federal gov-
ernment calls the marine conservation
work of Florida Fish and Wildlife Con-
servation Commission (FWC) Lt. David
Bingham "outstanding."
Last month, the United States At-
torney's Office for the Southern Dis-
trict of Florida honored Bingham, who
heads a patrol squad in Broward
County, with an Outstanding Law En-
forcement Officer of the Year award.
"Winning this award is a highlight of
my career," said Bingham. "It's re-
warding to know that the federal gov-
ernment recognized the FWC for our
work in resource protection."
The award recognized Bingham and
NOAA Special Agent James Rodriquez
for their work in "Operation Mind
Games." The two worked together in
2005 to bust charter fishing vessels
based in North Miami Beach for ille-
gally harvesting and landing sailfish.
The defendants in the case were sen-
tenced in 2008.
"Lt. Bingham's expertise in dealing
with state and federal fisheries is a


Government and International Affairs
and an internationally renowned
scholar on the region.
"There are thousands of American
troops stationed in Afghanistan, and
Pakistan is a nuclear power. In three
days of intense discussions, our in-
vited experts, who come from a truly
diverse academic and career back-
grounds, will analyze the challenges
faced by these two countries and their
ramifications for the U.S. national se-
curity and interests."
USF is organizing the conference as
a means of advancing discussion on the
development of future regional policy.
Attending the event will be contingents
from U.S. Central Command, the U.S.
diplomatic corps, scholars, students and
concerned citizens.
Experts also will explore the con-
nection between security interests
and the dire healthcare situation in
both nations.

Record breaking winter leads to

high number of manatee deaths


As of March 19, biologists with the
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission's (FWC) Fish and Wildlife
Research Institute (FWRI) have docu-
mented 431 manatee carcasses in state
waters so far in 2010. This preliminary
data indicates that in just three months,
the number of manatee deaths has ex-
ceeded the highest number on record
for an entire calendar year, which was
429 in 2009. The cause of death for the
majority of these animals is cold stress.
The "cold-stress" category accounts
for 222 documented manatee car-
casses; however, it is likely the cold
temperatures also contributed to many
of the 108 deaths in the "undeter-
mined" category and the 64 deaths in
the "unrecovered" category.
Manatee deaths are categorized as
"undetermined" when biologists are
not able to confirm the cause of death,
often because the carcasses are too
badly decomposed. The "unrecovered"
category includes carcasses that are
unavailable to scientists, such as when
carcasses are found in remote locations.
Unfortunately, the number of recov-
ered carcasses for this year continues
to be well above long-term averages.


As the rate of cold-related deaths di-
minishes, FWC staff will begin to focus
on determining the long-term implica-
tions for the manatee population, a
process that could take several years.
The period of prolonged cold
weather earlier this year exposed
manatees in Florida to colder than
normal water temperatures. Expo-
sure to low temperatures over a pe-
riod of time can cause a condition
called "manatee cold-stress syn-
drome," which can result in death.
"The unprecedented rate of mor-
tality this year is of great concern,"
said Gil McRae, FWRI director.
"FWC staff, partners and volunteers
have done a tremendous job working
around the clock for weeks recover-
ing carcasses and conducting rescues
throughout Florida."
Since the cold weather conditions
began to affect Florida, FWC staff and
conservation partners have rescued 48
manatees from across the state and
continue to respond to reports of dis-
tressed manatees.
To report a dead or distressed man-
atee, call the FWC Wildlife Alert Hot-
line at 888-404-FWCC (3922).

UF/IFAS, Buckeye break ground for

biorefinery pilot plant in Perry


BY: STU HUSTON
UF/IFAS
GAINESVILLE In 2002, the
U.S. Department of Energy set a
goal that, by 2030, a third of the
nation's reliance on fossil fuels
would be replaced by environ-
mentally sound products made
from plant material usually dis-
carded as trash.
Today, despite technical hur-
dles and the worldwide economic
recession, representatives from
the University of Florida, Buck-
eye Technologies Inc. and the
Florida Legislature broke ground
for a facility that could be a sig-
nificant step toward reaching that
goal.
The Stan Mayfield Biorefin-
ery Pilot Plant, slated to be oper-
ational in spring 2011, will be op-
erated as a UF/IFAS satellite
laboratory facility concentrated
on the use of cellulosic biomass
to produce ethanol.
"We would not be here today
without the exceptional foresight
and support of those who real-
ize, even in these trying eco-
nomic times, how important this
work is to our future," said UF
President Bernie Machen, who
led the groundbreaking cere-
mony.
Funded by a $20 million ap-
propriation from the Florida Leg-
islature, the plant will be built at
the Perry, Fla. facility of Buck-
eye Technologies Inc., a manu-


facturer and worldwide distribu-
tor of cellulose-based specialty
products made from wood and
cotton.
Much of the plant's research
will be based on the work of Lon-
nie Ingram, UF distinguished
professor of microbiology and cell
science and director of the
Florida Center for Renewable
Chemicals and Fuels.
Ingram engineered an E. coli
bacterium that breaks down ined-
ible plant material into sugars
that can be processed into fuel-
grade cellulosic ethanol. Varia-
tions of the technology are al-
ready at work in fuel plants in
Louisiana and Japan.
The UF Board of Trustees
named the facility for Stan May-
field, a member of the Florida
._ j_


House of Representatives from
2000 until his death in 2008.
An alumnus of UF's College of
Engineering, he was a leader in
education and environmental is-
sues. As chairman of the Florida
House's Environmental and Nat-
ural Resources Council, he cham-
pioned energy research, including
funding for the Perry plant.
"The...plant will continue his
vision and concentrate on the re-
search and development of new
renewable resources from cellu-
losic biomass," said Debbie May-
field, Stan Mayfield's widow and
member of the Florida House of
Representatives. "This is a great
day in the state of Florida. The
only thing that would make it bet-
ter is if Stan were here with us."

USF professor

leads Capitol

Hill briefing on

school safety

TAMPA, Fla. With each
school shooting, fears
deepen for the safety of
everyone at every learning
institution, from grammar
schools to college campuses.
Yet how afraid should the
public be, really? University
of South Florida Professor
Randy Borum led a team of
school safety experts in writ-
ing an article titled "What
Can Be Done About School
Shootings?" for a special is-
sue of Educational Re-
searcher devoted to "New
Perspectives on School
Safety and Violence Preven-
tion" and indeed does bring a
new set of ideas to the issue.
The article examines em-
pirical evidence and con-
cludes that these kinds of vi-
olent events are very
uncommon and should not
generate widespread fear, but
the authors also recommend
that schools "develop plans to
assess and manage threaten-
ing situations and to respond
effectively in the aftermath."
According to Borum,
"School shootings are horrific,
but extremely rare events.
We have to put the risk in its
proper perspective, and focus
our efforts on prevention -
not prediction, profiling or
checklists. Effective preven-
tion efforts work to create a
safe climate in the school,
while relying on systematic
procedures for thoughtfully
assessing and managing situ-
ations in which there is a con-
cern about potential violence.


will also be available; however,
the boat ramp will be closed.
Street closures will also be
in effect beginning at 4 p.m.,
Thursday, March 25, for the
Festival of States Honda Grand
Prix Illuminated Night Parade.
Central Ave. to Second Ave. S
will be closed to traffic between
Fifth and Eighth Sts. for parade
staging, then at 6:30 p.m., the
remainder of the parade route
at Fourth St., will close.
With more than 25,000 park-
ing spaces within a mile of the
race track, city officials expect
sufficient and problem-free park-
ing and transportation for the
upcoming Honda Grand Prix
weekend. Options include:
Park Downtown City park-
ing garages will charge a $5 all-
day event rate on Friday and a
$10 all-day event rate Saturday
and Sunday. Garages include


ities, hotels, restaurants, and at-
tractions, operating from 10 a.m.
to midnight Friday and Saturday
and from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on
Sunday. The closest Looper stop
to the race course will be near
the Hilton on the east side of
Second St., just north of Fourth
Ave. S.
*Parking for Persons with
Disabilities All permanent on-
street accessible spaces are
available on a first-come, first-
served basis at no charge.
Some have time limits but most

USF Professor Randy Borum will
present his findings on school
shootings at a debriefing on April 8 in
Washington, D.C.

"America's long-term in-
terests in school safety gen-
erally, and in preventing
school shootings specifically,
will best be served by relying
on research evidence to guide
a comprehensive, school-wide
approach," he concluded.
Borum is a professor in
the USF College of Behav-
ioral and Community Sci-
ences Department of Mental
Health Law and Policy and
holds a joint appointment in
the USF College of Public
Health. He and his co-au-
thors will be acknowledged
in Washington, D.C. at a Con-
gressional briefing to be held
April 8, at 2 p.m. in the Dirk-
sen Senate Office Building,
Room 430 where their find-
ings will be presented.
"We hope that members of
Congress will come away from
this briefing with an under-
standing that schools are fun-
damentally safe, but it is vital
that they have a careful ap-
proach for assessing and man-
aging threats," Borum said.


CLEARWATER, Fla. On
March 27 and 28, a neighbor-
hood will come together to
paint a mural with a lofty
goal in mind-to turn around
downtown Clearwater's trou-
bled East Gateway District.
The East Gateway Busi-
ness & Neighbors Associa-
tion is partnering with the
Pinellas Opportunity Coun-
cil and the City of Clearwa-
ter to produce the first of
three murals in conjunction
with the Pinellas Opportu-
nity Council program, Tal-
ento 2010, A Celebration of
Pinellas County's Hispanic
Art and Culture.
In 2009, Hispanics and
Latinos represented an esti-
mated 61 percent of East
Gateway's population. The
neighborhood's median fam-
ily income is 44 percent lower
than that for the City of
Clearwater as a whole.
The first Talento 2010
mural will be completed dur-
ing the March 27 to 28 event
that Maria Emilia, Pinellas
Opportunity Council Man-
ager, calls a "weekend
slam." Members of the
neighborhood association
and other community volun-
teers will don paint clothes
and wield brushes and
rollers in 2 hour shifts from
9 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day at
Tshirt Warehouse, 1498 Gulf
to Bay Blvd.
Volunteer artists will not
have to go it alone, though.
The mural project will be un-
der the direction of a local
Hispanic artist, Jorge Vidal.
Vidal has been coordinating


with the neighborhood asso-
ciation over the past few
months to design and plan the
mural project and will be on-
site for the painting process.
The mural theme is based
on the historic gladiolus farms
that occupied the area in the
early 1900s. The mural event
concludes with a March 28
celebration at the Fraternal
Order of Eagles, 1485 Gulf to
Bay Blvd, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The
Eagles are extending their bi-
weekly Delegates Breakfast to
the general public ($5 made to
order breakfast, 9 a.m. to 11
a.m.). The Eagles will serve
hot dogs and burgers from
noon to 3 p.m. At 1 p.m., kids
can tie-dye t-shirts (free while
supplies last).
Two more Talento 2010
murals are scheduled for fu-
ture weekend slams. On April
24 and 25, artist "Pila" Victo-
ria Cadena will orchestrate a
mural and on May 1 and 2,
artists Felipe Packard and Ri-
cardo de la Vega have de-
signed a mural that coincides
with a Cinco de Mayo festival.
The Pinellas Opportunity
Council is covering the cost
of the murals using federal
stimulus grant funds in
hopes that the outdoor art
will attract visitors to the
East Gateway District and
generate customers for its
diverse mix of small busi-
nesses, including several es-
tablishments known for
their authentic Mexican cui-
sine. Once finished, the Tal-
ento 2010 murals and others
in the city will be published
in a mural guide.

Dog of the Week
Prince


Prince truly lives up to
his name! He looks like
he has a little red beard
under that white face. He
seems to be housetrained,
is doing well on his basic

all humans he meets and
often leans into you for a
good scratch. He loves to
run a lap or two around
the yard with his ball in
his mouth. He is not a
high energy dog, but he
will need a brisk daily
walk or run. If you have
time, patience and love,
Prince is your man! Visit

Lake Park in Largo


Located in the heart of Pinellas
County, Eagle Lake Park offers the
freedom to explore and abundant op-
portunities for relaxation and recre-
ation. With more than 163 acres, this
new public resource offers a slice of
natural tranquility in the midst of ur-
ban life.
The Grand Opening of the first new
park introduced since 2001 is set for 10
a.m. on Tuesday, March 30, between
shelters 4 and 5 in the northwest cor-


ner of the park. Cub Scout Pack 484
will present the colors and Commission
Chair Karen Williams Seel of the Pinel-
las County Board of County Commis-
sioners will speak to commemorate the
park's public opening.
Eagle Lake Park is located in the
City of Largo and bordered by Belleair
Road on the north, Keene Road on the
east, McMullen Road to the south and
Lake Avenue to the west, with the
main entrance at 1800 Keene Road.


The park was purchased in two sepa-
rate transactions from the Taylor fam-
ily, early pioneers in Pinellas County
who used the property for cattle graz-
ing and as a citrus grove. Amenities
include a playground, six picnic shel-
ters, fishing piers, three restrooms, a
dog park, paved recreation trails and
2,000 feet of boardwalk. The habitat
of the park includes native vegetation,
restored wetlands and diverse local
wildlife.


Goodbye CONTINUED from Page 1
the Web. Nothing will replace
that cazzz beep beep sound of a
modem synching.
We made the name change
to Pinellas News, which every-
one who lives here had no prob-
lem pronouncing, however, the
rest of the world required a
lengthy explanation of the
proper enunciation.
We also moved the
office from Pinellas FU Jnua y
Park to downtown [m
Saint Petersburg to 11
get closer to the Rmn.iral
courthouse and con-
-
centrate on legal no- -1
tices. We signed the B
lease with Mr. David ,k
Foster on April 14, How
1995, and will have
been here until the M
end of March, 2010.
We fought and won
the bid for Pinellas
County tax rolls twice
and I found out first
hand that stuffing 10
sections of tax rolls A Pinella
into each paper took a
while. We had our thickest pa-
per run at 170 pages. Of course,
reading the tax rolls was not rel-
ished by a lot of our subscribers
back then and post office boxes
were jammed when stuffed with
that edition.
This week the state house is
taking testimony in committee
again to remove legal notices
from newspapers altogether.
The first time a bill was intro-
duced to remove legal notices
from newspapers was back in
2006.
Back before the last mille-
nium, with much assistance
from Erik Mathre, his family
and friends, we added the Web
site www.pinellas-news.com.
The concept was simple
enough. Design the site so that
anyone could update it without
becoming a wizard of the html
code. That part was simple, or
so we thought, but we got it
done. Not every story written is
there, but at least a lot of the lo-
cal ones were uploaded.


So, why stay in this business
for all this time? I can only
guess that either it is a defect in
genes or a passion for enjoying
or dreading the mystery of what
was to happen every day when
I walked in the door and feeling
of accomplishment every week
of putting out another edition.

National

Child Safety

Expert

Holds Free

Seminar for

Parents


Pinellas Park, Fla. -Just 32
seconds. That's all it takes
to lure your child away.
Award-winning author and
nationally-recognized child
luring expert, Dr. Ken
Wooden, will hold a free sem-
inar for parents and other in-
terested citizens on Wednes-
day April 14th from 6:00 to
8:00 pm at the Pinellas Park
Performing Arts Center.
This free child luring
awareness and prevention
seminar is designed to teach
strategies and tactics to pro-
tect children, teens and
young adults from predators.
Dr. Ken Wooden founded
the nationally-recognized
child safety program, Child
Lures Prevention, and has
been a featured guest on
CNN, Oprah, and Inside Edi-
tion, to name a few.
"If predators are using
lures, shouldn't we be teach-
ing our children the lures?"
urges Wooden.
The free seminar is being
held in conjunction with Na-
tional Child Abuse Preven-
tion Month in April and was
organized by the Abuse,
Neglect and Dependency
(AND) Committee, an intera-
gency collaboration with
membership from more than
a dozen Pinellas County so-
cial service agencies.

As a top predator in the
world's oceans, sharks deserve
our cautious respect. However,
the fear they instill among swim-
mers is disproportionate to the
actual number of negative en-
counters. Sharks prefer other
prey. Attacks on humans are
usually a case of mistaken iden-
tity.
According to International
Shark Attack File statistics, the
odds of a shark attack on a hu-
man are 1 in 11.5 million, and of
a fatal shark attack, 0 in 264.1
million.
Humans are top predators
too, and they pose more of a dan-
ger to sharks than sharks do to
people. Some anglers love to
catch and kill sharks just for the
thrill, while people harvest most
sharks primarily for their meat,
fins, hides and jaws. Brent Win-
ner, a scientist at the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission's Fish and Wildlife
Research Institute, noted that
people harvest an estimated 100
million sharks annually world-
wide.
"Scientific data show that
many shark populations have
been dramatically reduced by al-


most 50 percent over the past 25
years," Winner said.
The lemon shark, known to
scientists as "Negaprion brevi-
rostris," gathers at specific lo-
cations off Florida's southeast
coast from November through
June for what scientists believe
are "pre-breeding aggregations."
Clustering makes the lemon-
colored sharks that reach 9 feet
vulnerable to overfishing, so the
FWC recently passed a rule pro-
tecting lemon sharks from recre-
ational and commercial harvest
in all Florida state waters.
"I've been in this state only
20 years, yet, in that short time,
the numbers of many shark
species have declined. In 1989,
we didn't have harvest restric-
tions on any species. Now, har-
vest is prohibited on more than
20 shark species in both state
and federal waters," Winner
said.
The ocean is a wild environ-
ment for humans (Homo sapi-
ens), but it is home to sharks. As
apex predators, sharks maintain
the natural balance of life in the
sea. For more information on
sharks, go to re-
search.myfwc.com/features/ and

Former American Idol contestant to perform


Tampa, FL- If you are among
the millions of die-hard American
Idol fans that span the globe,
Danny Gokey is a name you have
not forgotten. If you haven't been
fortunate enough to hear the tal-
ented vocalist/guitarist/pianist,
you're in luck he's bringing his
act to the Dallas Bull on Friday,
April 9.
The handsome 29-year-old
church music director from Mil-
waukee finished in third place dur-


ing Season 8 of the popular reality
series. He released his first single
in 2009, an upbeat melody titled
"My best days are ahead of me."
While Gokey sang a wide variety
of songs during his Idol career
such as Aerosmith's "Dream On"
and Joe Cocker's "You Are So
Beautiful," he felt most at ease
singing country music. With a lit-
tle coaxing from superstar Randy
Travis who saw a unique spirit in
the young artist, Gokey made his


way into the country scene, re-
leasing his album My Best Days in
March of 2010. Gokey attributes
his success to his supportive wife,
who passed away just one month
prior to his Idol audition. He has
since started the foundation
"Sophia's Heart" in her honor.
Doors will open at 7 p.m. and
the cost of attendance is $9.95 in
advance through Ticketmaster or
www.Dallasbull.com. Tickets are
$15 at the door.

Freshman Lindsey Richardson pitched a complete game,
striking out eight batters and giving up three hits.

Although the University of South Florida
softball team outhit the No. 22 Ohio State
Buckeyes, 5-3, the Bulls loss 1-0 on a first
inning home run.
Freshman Lindsey Richardson (5-3)
tossed a complete game earning the loss,
striking out eight while scattering three hits.
"It was all Lindsey today," said head coach
Ken Eriksen. "It's a shame we couldn't get
any runs from her. She really gave us great
opportunity to win the ball game. You're talk-
ing about a pre-season top 15 team, and
we're holding them to three hits, while strik-
ing out eight. It's probably one of the better
games I have seen pitched here in a couple

of years. I am pretty excited for her and ex-
cited for our team."
Sam Marder knocked her 11th home run of
the season over the left field wall, on a 1-0
pitch, in the top of the first inning.
"You can't make any mistakes on All-Amer-
ican Sam Marder," said Eriksen. "It's a situation
where I called a bad pitch and I blame myself."
To lead off the second inning, senior Ali-
son Savarese singled to left field for her fifth
straight game. Ohio State attempted to turn
a double play on a grounder by JoJo Medina,
but an erroneous throw for the second out
went wide, landing Medina on second. After
Kendall Arnold walked with two outs, the
Bulls could not push across the tying road.
To start the fourth, sophomore Janine
Richardson laid down a bunt single for her
first of two hits. Medina singled to left to put
runners on first and second for the second
time in the game for the Bulls. With two
runners in scoring position, the Bulls left
them stranded, leaving the Buckeyes with
the lead, 1-0.
"I thought our effort was fantastic," said
Eriksen. "I would say tonight was the best at-
titude efforts we have had."
In a pitching battle, only three hits combined
finished the game from the fifth inning on.
Melanie Nicols (7-0) hurled a complete
game, surrendering five hits, no runs, strik-
ing out four, while walking one.
The Bulls continue with play against
Dartmouth tomorrow at 5 p.m. at the USF
Softball Stadium.
"You go in facing Dartmouth like it's a
new day because it is a new day," said Erik-
sen. "Brittany Bowles is going to get the
ball and she is going to try and match the
performance of Lindsey."
