MONEY FOR PHYSICAL ACTIVITY
According to a recent message from Margo Wootan of the Center for
Science in the Public Interest (CSPI), "Congress has finally finished
the Labor HHS and Education Appropriations bill ... The Conference
Report includes $27.505 million for Nutrition and Physical Activity,
which is a 70% increase over the FY 2001 funding level of $16 mil.
"The funding includes $5 million for efforts to eliminate micronutrient
malnutrition and $475,000 for a study by the Institute of Medicine on
childhood obesity. Also, within the total for physical activity and
nutrition, the following amounts have been targeted (earmarked) for
projects: $125,000 for the Village of Park Forest, Illinois Health
Department, for preventive health education and screening projects for
nutrition, chronic illness, food safety, health screening, hygiene, and
nutrition education for school children; $200,000 for the Great South
Bay YMCA in Bay Shore, New York, for the Fit Kids education and health
promotion program; $500,000 for the State of Alaska Department of
Health and Social Services for the Obesity Prevention and Control
Program; and $2 million for West Virginia University to establish the
Center on Obesity.
"The bill also includes $68.4 mil for the Youth Media Campaign -- also
called the National Campaign to Change Children's Health Behaviors (or
the Porter youth media campaign). That program was cut by 45% (from
$125 mil in FY 2001). That program suffered from a lack of a
constituency this year and from the fact that the President zeroed the
program out in his budget. We hope to fix that next year and work to
ensure that this important program that promotes physical activity
continues to be funded. Amazingly, the bill also includes $50 million
for the Physical Education for Progress (PEP) Program -- a ten-fold
increase over the FY 2001 funding level of $5 million..."

STOCKHOLM PARTNERSHIPS PUSH SUSTAINABILITY
According to Eric Britton of The Commons, "For those of us who are
serious concerned with advancing the sustainability agenda in cities,
there is something very interesting that is taking shape in Stockholm
for the next six months.
"The program in question is the Stockholm Partnerships for Sustainable
Cities. It is a multi-part event which includes a first class
interactive web site, an international competition for outstanding
sustainability projects in cities world wide, and in the first week of
June in Stockholm an Expo of the best of these projects together with a
wide-open what you may think of as a conference until you see the way
they have decided to bring people together to share ideas and learn
from each other."
According to the program's website," The vision of the Stockholm
Partnerships for Sustainable Cities is to gather comprehensive
knowledge and information on the most innovative and inspiring
sustainability projects from all over the world in a grand exposure of
urban solutions and to facilitate the sharing of knowledge and
technology from these initiatives.
"The event will highlight development projects in cities from all over
the world that show innovative solutions for sustainable development in
urban areas. Some may be based on policy, others on technology and yet
others on proactive initiatives by communally based actors, but they
will all have one thing in common: to demonstrate in practice that
sustainable urban development is already possible.
"The best projects, and companies offering the best enabling technology
will be offered space at the Stockholm Partnerships Exhibition that is
organized together with the conference and award programme. Also, there
will be exclusive awards handed over to the urban development projects
that demonstrate the most innovative way to ensure sustainable urban

PRESCOTT AZ GETS BIKE/PED PROJECT GRANT
According to a news release from the Prescott Alternative
Transportation (PAT), "PAT, the City of Prescott and the Open Space
Alliance (OSA) announced the receipt of $1.2 million in federal grants
for bicycle and pedestrian projects in Prescott today. The three
federal Transportation Enhancements grants will fund Prescott's
Greenways Trail System, the SR89/SR69 Interchange Bikeway and Walkway,
and Prescott Rails-to-Trails Phase II between old Hwy 89A and Chino
"The Greenways grant, in particular, was a hard-won victory for
Prescott. The 2001 application marked the fourth year in a row that
PAT and the city had applied for funding for the project. This year,
timing appeared to be everything. Two weeks before the Transportation
Enhancements Review Committee convened to decide on this year's
recipients, PAT received word that it would be receiving $10,000 from
Bikes Belong, a bicycle industry coalition, for construction of the
Granite Creek Park low-water crossing, a crucial component of the
Greenways project. 'This grants was critical in leveraging support from
the federal government,' says Knaup.

WILL WALKING BE MD STATE EXERCISE?
According to a Jan. 2nd story in the Montgomery (MD) Journal,
"Maryland already has a state cat, dog and dinosaur. And now an
8-year-old Silver Spring boy wants to add another item to the list.
Will Smith, a third-grade student at East Silver Spring Elementary
School, thinks everyone should be walking.
"The boy's father, Bill Smith, said he and Will were looking at the
state symbols on their home computer last fall when Will said walking
should be added as the state exercise. "A lot of people in Maryland
walk every day, but not that much," Will said. He said he got the idea
because walking is the Smith family's prime mode of transportation.
Will's mother, Kathleen, never learned how to drive, and Bill Smith
didn't renew his license. Will and Bill Smith brought the idea to
Will's teacher, who allowed the boy to introduce the idea to his
"They embraced it and decided to write letters to Del. William
Bronrott, D-Bethesda, asking him to introduce the idea of an official
exercise to the General Assembly. Although he initially balked at the
idea, Bronrott, an advocate for pedestrian safety and walkable
communities, promised to introduce the legislation during the General
Assembly session, which convenes Jan. 9. Bronrott said his initial
thought was that his colleagues would scoff at the bill, but became
excited about the idea after reading the students' letters and studying

HAMPTON ROADS TO GET PED-FRIENDLY OFFICES
According to a Dec. 29th story in the Hampton Roads (VA) Daily
Press, "Three high-powered tenants have announced intentions to be
among the first tenants for an office building in New Town, a
pedestrian-friendly community to include homes, workplaces, shopping
and recreation. SunTrust Bank, the accounting firm of Witt, Mares & Co.
and the law firm of Kaufman & Canoles all said they want space in a
three-story, 60,000-square-foot building that will be constructed on
Monticello Avenue, across the street from the new James City County
"All three have written letters to New Town Associates LLC, developers
of the 300-acre community, stating their interest. They were waiting
for the James City County Board of Supervisors to rezone the project
before proceeding with the final leasing steps, said Dave Iwans,
president of Dave Iwans & Associates in Norfolk, the marketing and
public relations firm representing the development..."

'SIM-FORD' SHOWS EFFECTS OF DRIVER DISTRACTIONS
In a Dec. 2001 article in Popular Science, automotive editor Dan
McCosh said "My passenger in the Ford Taurus I'm driving suggests we
skip through Bob Dylan's 'Positively 4th Street.' It's not my favorite
song either. I start to fiddle with the CD player in the instrument
panel. Then, out of the corner of my eye, I see that I'm running off
the road into a ditch at 60 mph.
"There are no screams of alarm. In fact, my passenger, Jeff Greenberg,
a group leader at Ford's science labs, grins. No one is getting hurt
here. We're sitting in Ford's new $10 million simulator, designed to
study how people act while driving. Think of it as a big video game and
you've got the idea. Ford hopes the simulator will bring scientific
data to the nationwide debate over how distracting cell phones and other
electronic devices are for drivers.
"'How long do you think you can drive straight without moving the
wheel, before the car leaves the lane?' asks Greenberg, bemusedly.
'About 4 seconds?' I guess. 'About 4 to 6,' confirms Greenberg,

"Although officials won't confirm the three -- short-listed from 11

SAN ANTONIO'S BICYCLE CHRISTMAS
According to a Dec. 128th story on KSAT TV in San Antonio, Texas,
"More than 550 bicycles were donated to the Bikes For Tykes Campaign
this year, but many more bikes are needed for children ages 9 to 15.
KSAT 12 joined Youth Alternatives and the San Antonio Police Department
this year to collect new bicycles for needy area children. 'All the
children that are going to benefit from this program are all living in
the poverty level,' Youth Alternatives spokeswoman Gloria Trevino said.
'Everyone who has filled out an application is living on $600 a month
"The sponsors are especially grateful to Hermes Music, which donated
more than 300 bicycles to the campaign. 'It feels good when you kind of
go to someone's home, and you knock on the door, and you say, 'Here is
what we got for you,' San Antonio police officer Robert Esquivel said.
'The kids' eyes light up, and it's great.' Bike donations are being
accepted at Crossroads Mall, Regal Cinemas and the KSAT 12 studios at

BRIT MOTORIST LOBBY WORKS AGAINST SPEED CAMERAS
According to a Dec. 29th story in the Spectator, "In spite of clear
evidence of the success of speed-camera trials -- in a typical
experiment accidents on Nottingham's ring road fell by half when
cameras were installed -- the Home Secretary has ruled that these fair
and incorruptible machines be rendered useless. In a sop to the
militant motorists' lobby, all new speed cameras will have to be
painted in bright colours and mounted in prominent positions. Motorists
able to prove that they could not see a speed camera in time to slow
down will be able to have their convictions quashed, and the police
will be obliged to remove the offending devices. The reason, according
to Mr. Blunkett, is that speed cameras act as a deterrent only if they
are visible. It is not a very convincing argument.

ORLANDO'S PEDALLING PARAMEDICS
According to a Jan. 3rd story in the Orlando (FL) Sentinel, "As
Orlando rang in a new year, the Fire Department's paramedics were
patrolling downtown streets -- on two wheels. While the Orlando Police
Department's bicycle officers have become familiar sights, the city's
25-person squad of bike-riding medics has been less visible. The team's
10 Cannondale mountain bikes each carry about 40 pounds of life-saving
gear -- defibrillators, oxygen, drugs and other equipment the medics
would need to help victims of heart attacks or barroom brawls.
"City officials say the two-person bike teams can navigate downtown's
crowds and traffic faster than rescue trucks. 'We can go through
crowds, alleys. We take our bikes into high-rise office buildings, up
escalators -- we go everywhere,' Lt. Mark Austin said. Four pairs of
medics, including Austin, were on duty Monday night and into the early
hours of 2002..."
