Currently, there’s only one Florida Democrat actively campaigning for governor, Nan Rich joins WUSF this week for a special Newsmaker’s edition of Florida Matters. The former state lawmaker and senate minority leader gives her assessment of Republican Gov. Rick Scott’s first term in office which she likened to a dictatorship. “The problem with his administration is that he believes he doesn’t have to talk to legislators,” former State Sen. Nan Rich said. And Rich pulls no punches taking on her own party for excluding her from addressing the statewide Jefferson Jackson annual dinner in June. Rich said the party’s snub at the dinner was a “mistake” and “wrong.” Outside of South Florida, few know Rich. So, Florida Matters host Carson Cooper asked the former lawmaker how her friends and foes describe her. Learn where Rich stands on charter schools, college tuition, Medicaid expansion, tax cuts and more. You also can watch video portions of the Florida Matters Show.

The USF Sarasota-Manatee inaugural freshmen class
Most people don’t realize it, but for nearly all of its almost forty year history, USF Sarasota-Manatee has been an “upper division transfer university,” meaning it only accepted juniors, seniors and master’s students. That’s all changed this year, as the school has welcomed its first class of freshmen. We’ll meet some of these newest Bulls, and tell you how their addition fits into the evolution of USF Sarasota-Manatee on this week’s University Beat on WUSF 89.7.

Proposed Lens design to replace the Inverted Pyramid.
The aging St. Petersburg Pier officially closed to the public on May 31st. The city of St. Petersburg plans to demolish it and replace it with a new pier, a design called the Lens. But not so fast, opponents of the Lens design gathered more than 20,000 signatures to force a referendum on whether or not to move ahead with those new plans. The vote is scheduled for Tuesday August 27th. We'll take a look at why this has been such a big and contentious deal along with some background history on the relationship between St. Peterburg's waterfront and its iconic pier. For photos of the pier through the years, click here.

Friedreich’s ataxia is a rare, debilitating neuro-muscular disease that slowly robs a person of their strength and ability to walk - and at this time, there’s no approved treatment for the disease. USF is the lead site on a national clinical trial of a drug that will hopefully help control symptoms of F-A. On this week’s University Beat on WUSF 89.7, we’ll tell you more about the trial and some upcoming Friedreich-related’s events in Tampa. You’ll also meet a young woman participating in the trial who refuses to let the disease take control of her life.

St. Petersburg is at a crossroads - what to do about the homeless, mass transit, the future of the Pier - and the future home of the Tampa Bay Rays. Current Mayor Bill Foster will be angling for another term during the Aug. 27 election for mayor. But he's got some stiff competition - from former City Councilwoman Kathleen Ford and former Council Chair Rick Kriseman, who's most recent job was representing Pinellas County in the Florida House of Representatives. The three top candidates for mayor squared off recently at the Palladium in downtown St. Pete. The debate - which was sponsored by the Tampa Bay Times and Bay News 9 - got a bit testy at times as the candidates focused on questions involving the Lens - and whether to keep the Rays playing at Tropicana Field through the end of their contract. The moderators are Bay News Nine's Al Reuchel and Times' political editor Adam Smith.

Florida is a state of hurricanes and summer deluges, but water is a dwindling resource. It's at the center of a tug of war between urban areas, agriculture and environmentalists, who say Florida's waterways are drying up - or becoming increasingly polluted. Bob Graham is one of the most experienced politicians in Florida, having served as governor and Senator. He's also one of the most fervent backers of environmental causes in the state. He spoke recently with Matthew Peddie, news director of WMFE, our sister public radio station in Orlando. Sen. Graham talks about the state of Florida's waterways, and whether environmentalists and their allies have enough political muscle in Tallahassee to toughen laws to protect the quality of our springs and rivers. We also hear from Drew Bartlett, director of the Division of Environmental Assessment and Restoration for the state Department of Environmental Protection. He talks about the problems of too many nutrients washing away into the state's waterways - and what is being done to reduce that flow.

It’s reportedly the largest wheelchair sporting event in the world and its coming to the Tampa Bay area July 13-18. It’s the 33rd annual National Veterans Wheelchair Games. Florida Matters visits with a wheelchair athlete turned dancer who is coming out of retirement to compete in the Games. It’s been 10 years since Navy veteran Dwayne Scheuneman sprinted competitively. But even at 44, he believes he’ll be competitive in the 100 and 200 yard races. He also plans to participate in quad rugby – an adaptive form of rugby for wheelchair athletes. He’ll be playing with Davis Celestine, president of the Gulf Coast chapter of Paralyzed Veterans of America. Celestine, a wheelchair athlete in quad rugby and weight lifting, joins the Florida Matters panel along with Dr. Kevin White, chief of the spinal cord injury unit at James A. Haley VA Hospital and Karen Collins with Haley VA public affairs. Opening ceremonies are Saturday, July 13th, with the games beginning Sunday and running through Thursday. There are 18 different sports from trap shooting and bowling to basketball and table tennis. There are also two demonstration sports - tennis and water skiing. Many of the events are scheduled at the Tampa Bay Convention Center and Tampa Bay Times Forum. Other venues include Raymond James Stadium, the Long Center for swimming and Seminole Lake for water skiing. All events are free and open for the public to watch and cheer on the veteran athletes.

Human trafficking is a huge problem in Florida. The state ranks third in the country in human trafficking, but local organizations are working on a solution.

Coming to Pinellas County?
In 2014, voters in Pinellas County will decide whether to raise their sales taxes to pay for major upgrades to the county's public transportation system. That would include what could become the Bay Area's first light rail. Supporters say it's the only solution to the county's gridlocked roads and would boost the local economy. Critics say light rail is a boondoggle and would strap Pinellas taxpayers with the highest sales tax rate in the state - with very little to show for it.

It’s the next best thing to actually being there, as USF scientists are creating a virtual map of the Tampa campus. University Beat on WUSF TV tells you how the researchers, working with USF and high school students, use 3-D scanners, GPS and other high-tech tools to build a world that can be viewed by future students, campus police and countless others - and they’re taking these skills beyond the university to also capture images of endangered monuments around the world.

It’s a new way to look at USF, as researchers at the Alliance for Integrated Spatial Technologies are using three-dimensional imaging to create a “virtual campus.” On this week's University Beat on WUSF 89.7, find out how the tools and skills the researchers are passing on to students are capturing both images and information here in Tampa and halfway around the world.

What got done in Tallahassee, what didn't and why? And how will it affect you? Ethics and elections reform gets through, but health care expansion does not. And efforts to change alimony and state run Citizens property insurance fell short. Education policy in the state is changing, but gun laws are not. Recently, Florida Matters aired a town hall meeting hosted by WLRN, our sister public radio station in Miami. Then, we heard from some of the 1,000 people who attended, saying what issues they wanted state lawmakers to tackle. On this show, we hear from a group of journalists who cover the legislature and they'll revisit some of the questions those people posed back in February. We hear from Miami Herald capital bureau chief Mary Ellen Klas; Aaron Sharockman of the Tampa Bay Times and Politifact Florida; Doug Lyons of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel; and Gina Jordan, who reports for WLRN Public Radio in Miami and also for StateImpact Florida. The moderator is WLRN's Phil Latzman.
