University Beat focuses in on "From There to Here," a photography exhibit on the lives of Bay area refugee youth. However, this exhibit is different in that the sixteen teens and one six-year-old aren't the subjects of the pictures - they're the photographers, capturing what their new lives - all their struggles, triumphs and hopes - are like. The exhibit runs until October 17 in the Main Rotunda on the 2nd floor of the USF Sarasota-Manatee campus at 8350 N. Tamiami Trail in Sarasota.

In the last couple of weeks, the nation has been taken on a roller-coaster ride by Wall Street: Investment bank Lehman Brothers collapsed. Merrill Lynch sold itself to Bank of America. Federal regulators rescued American International Group. And after an initial emergency deal for Citigroup to acquire Wachovia, Wells Fargo took over the bank, which is the largest in Florida. Much of the turmoil is being linked back to bad mortgages and a credit crunch. This week on Florida Matters, we'll bring the conversation back to the Tampa Bay area and talk about the ripple effects we’re seeing in this area.
Bill Minahan was born in 1930 in Johnstown, PA, one of seven children. At the start of World War II he followed his brother's lead and enlisted in the Marine Corps, later serving as quarterback for the football team. When he came home Bill received a scholarship to play ball for the University of Tampa. This led to a successful series of high school coaching positions, taking him to Jesuit High School in Tampa. He talked with his wife Martha about the news he received regarding his health while in that position at Jesuit.
