Lithia Springs algae
Florida has some of the most renowned springs in the world - famed for both their number and the clarity of the water. But ongoing residential development and nutrients flowing into the underground aquifer have combined to cloud the future of the springs. Thick green algae is now found where there were once gin-clear waters. We talk with Dr. Tom Crisman, a freshwater ecologist at the University of South Florida in Tampa, Dr. Chris Anastasiou, springs team leader at the Southwest Florida Water Management District and Craig Pittman, environmental reporter for the Tampa Bay Times.

Before WWII – college was a dream for most Americans. Then came the GI Bill and almost 8 million veterans got an education. Now, there’s the Post 9-11 GI Bill signed into law July 2008. It provides benefits to service members who have served 90 or more days active duty since September, 2001. The Post 9-11 GI benefits depend on the amount of time served, but they can include up to 100 percent tuition, money for fees and books, a monthly housing stipend and the option to transfer benefits to family members. The question is will the Post 9-11 GI Bill create a similar legacy for veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars who some are calling the “Next Greatest Generation.” Secretary of the Department of Veterans Affairs, Eric Shinseki, delivered a strong message to 600 Iraq and Afghanistan veterans earlier this month at the national convention of the Student Veterans of America. Shinseki recounted similarities between veterans of Operation Enduring Freedom/Operation Iraqi Freedom and WWII veterans like U.S. Senator Daniel Inouye, a Medal of Honor recipient, who died in December. And we talk with four student veterans from the University of South Florida about the Post 9-11 GI Bill and improvements they say would help student veterans be more successful. Kiersten Downs served seven years in the U.S. Air Force and New York Air National Guard and is a USF doctoral student in applied cultural anthropology. She also is the current president of the USF Student Veterans Association and nominated to serve on the national leadership council with the Veterans of America. Patrick Schweickart is currently serving six years in the U.S. Marine Corps. He served four years at Camp Lejeune and is now in the Reserves. He’s studying criminology at USF and works at the student veterans center. Josiah Hill served as an officer in the U.S. Coast Guard for five years on drug interdiction missions in South America. He’s a first year medical student at USF Morsani College of Medicine and a Pat Tillman Military Scholar. Andrew Napier also is a Pat Tillman Military Scholar and applicant to USF’s Morsani College of Medicine. He served six years in the Army National Guard and was deployed to Afghanistan in 2008-2009 as a combat medic. And he’s student veteran a policy adviser at USF. They are among the estimated 2 million OEF/OIF veterans expected to earn a higher education degree or training certificate thanks to the Post 9-11 GI Bill.

He was a familiar face and voice in the 1960s. On Nov. 19, 1961, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. spoke at the Fort Homer Hesterly Armory in Tampa. At the time of the speech, local resident Clarence Fort was a leader in the NAACP's student chapter. More than five decades later, Fort returned to the now-vacant armory for a conversation with curator Rodney Kite-Powell of the Tampa Bay History Center.

State lawmakers only have one thing they must do each year and that is to pass a balanced budget. Yet, there are plenty of issues to keep lawmakers busy this year. Florida Matters offers a preview of the “other” issues lawmakers will tackle this session featuring insights from Mary Ellen Klas, who covers state politics for the Tampa Bay Times/Miami Herald Tallahassee Bureau, Senator Tom Lee, a Republican from Brandon who served as Senate President from 2004-2006, and freshman state Representative Mark Danish, a seventh grade science teacher and Democrat representing the New Tampa area. Some of the topics discussed include voting reforms, education funding, how to manage proposed increases in the state-run Citizens Property Insurance, ethics and efforts to have a more harmonious legislative session which starts March 5th. Committee meetings start up again beginning January 14th in Tallahassee. And there will be a hearing into the 2012 election problems and solutions on Monday as well.

Sam Gibbons and John F. Germany
Sam Gibbons was re-elected to Congress 16 times, and never lost an election. That came after he parachuted behind enemy lines on D-Day in Normandy, during one of the most harrowing invasions of World War II. He was instrumental in getting the University of South Florida off the ground. He also helped the then-small town of Tampa expand to the limits of the university. And he rode in President John F. Kennedy's convertible limousine through Tampa in 1963 - the last stop before that fateful ride in Dallas. Sam Gibbons died Oct. 10th at the age of 92. His last public appearance was several months earlier, when he appeared before a standing-room-only crowd with former circuit judge John F. Germany at the downtown library that bears his friend's name.

If someone is writing a book on jazz, you can be sure Dave Brubeck will be in it. He was the second jazz artist ever on the cover of Time Magazine, after Louis Armstrong. He is an accomplished pianist and composer, to say the least, but be careful not to pigeonhole him. Brubeck has released a classical album, which we’ll hear. He’s also written two ballets, a musical, an oratorio, four cantatas and a mass. Dave Brubeck recently died of heart failure, just one day short of his 92nd birthday. Music took him all over the world, but in his later years, he liked to spend his winters on Sanibel Island in southwest Florida. Today, we remember Brubeck in conversation with one-time WGCU reporter Ryan Warner.

Family Commission with Snake (Waterfalls), 2007, by Tina Barney
Andy Warhol once said that “A good picture is one that’s in focus and of a famous person doing something unfamous.” You can see almost two hundred pictures Warhol took of people both famous and ‘unfamous’ on display at the USF Contemporary Art Museum. This week’s University Beat on WUSF 89.7 takes a closer look at the exhibit, as well as a companion display of work by modern photographers who are following Warhol’s example.
